v0.1.1: Kupferbootstrap Documentation

Hi there, another update!

Today we're celebrating kupfer v0.1.1, a somewhat minor update!

Also a new team member is made official! 🥳

I have done a minor update to the website.

Kupfer v0.1.1#

We tagged v0.1.1 of kupfer with a minor fix for the kupferbootstrap packages check PKGBUILD format checker, built generated html documentation for kupferbootstrap and added some small new packages to our PKGBUILDs!

kupferbootstrap#

kupferbootstrap v0.1.1

PKGBUILDs#

pkgbuilds v0.1.1

(thanks to Syboxez for contributing practically all of these!)

qbootctl#

qbootctl is a cool new postmarketOS-ish development that allows boot slots on Qualcomm Android devices with A/B boot slots to be marked as booted successfully, preventing unpleasant situations (both slots marked unbootable) on the Oneplus 6[t].

It is now available in our repos, so it can be installed with pacman and enabled with systemctl as usual.

It'll be added to the appropiate device packages in the device- and flavor-packages revamp in v0.2.0!

Maybe don't try this on a device that's not a qcom A/B device, mhmk?

Membership#

I've made Syboxez officially a package maintainer in kupfer. He's been providing incredible help by contributing updates to PKGBUILDs and ports from our bigger sibbling distros.

We're currently working on getting FDE-unlocking working after building an initramfs shim to circumvent size restrictions in boot.img (is your head spinning yet?). Stay tuned!

Roadmap#

definitely in v0.2.0#

  1. rework devices and flavors in kupferbootstrap and PKGBUILDs
  2. related to 1: store which services to enable without becoming Debian (TBD)

probably in v0.2.0#

Plans for v1.0.0 (longer-term goals)#

As usual, I probably forgot half the things I wanted to mention and/or link to, but c'est la vie.

Until next time!
