github.com/ChromiumOS-rPi/ChromiumOS is a hobby project (one of many) to compile google chromium OS for the raspberry Pi. It's already got a trusty / xenial and builds an entire OS in < 10 commands with 1-2 manual inputs. It needs love, specifically from gentoo experts for > r56 build (the only current build).

Why do this?

Other than being cool, it's a minimalist OS for low-end devices, which because it's so locked down should be hard to break.

Sub-Projects

  • Building from early releases to nightly
  • Build automation (already reduced to ~4-5 steps)
  • Device testing
  • Mainline Kernel
  • non-X11 freon build
