Image Building Tools

Linaro is currently focused on adding features missing from live-helper that are necessary to produce ARM images. Live-helper is an image production tool already used by Canonical OEM Services and Debian. One of the objectives of this work is to allow the separation of hardware-independent pieces from the hardware enablement packages specific to a board, such as the bootloader and kernel. This will make it easier to test an image on new hardware, before the drivers are published. Other objectives are to improve documentation.

Image Building Console

Linaro is exploring the creation of an image building console that can be used with a build farm. Currently Linaro is negotiating with Canonical to open source an OEM product called LexBuilder under the GPLv3 license as the most advantageous way to accomplish this.
