People who use a cloud app these days have to store their data on servers of the companies that provide the app. Without knowing what will happen to your data and who else has access to it, you are asked to trust those companies – which means you are losing control over your data and privacy!

With REDS.box you know exactly where your files are – on your own server where only you have the access rights.

Building Debian Linux image for A20-OLinuXino-LIME2 with mainline kernel 3.19 new tutorial by Remy van Elst

A20-OLinuXino-LIME2-1

 

A20 is now in mainline which means you can build mainline kernel and it will work on A20-OLinuxino-LIME2.

Remy made blog post how to build Debian Linux with latest Kernel 3.19 from scratch – you can read how he did this here.

Shrinking the Penguins or How Remy van Elst shrink our Debian images to just 177MB size!

Building Linux images is magic, we still learn … When we make the Linux images for Olinuxino we want to put the maximal functionality and include in everything we can think of so our customers do not have to worry to build custom kernels etc for different modules and USB sticks, unfortunately this comes to it’s price … huge files for download and write on the SD cards.

Remy van Elst set his goal how small he can shrink our images and he did remarkable job which blogged here.

Following what he did was quite educational at least for us!

For instance we never knew apt-lists contain 100MB of info which anyone can easily download with apt-get update instead to put in the SD card image 🙂 but you learn while you are live!

Great job Remy!

Now the small images lovers can download just 177MB basic image for LIME2.

We are taking notes and will make srink images for all our boards as alternative to the (we have everything fat) images we have now on our server for download!
