Summary0007740: ARM Build Script Fails
DescriptionKali Linux ARM build script fails to complete build the cubox-i4pro and cubox image. I attempted to build each image 4 time each, with and without using the builder.txt file, and it fails, "no mount point specified". I was able to build a Pinebook Pro image on my first attempt with no issue.
Steps To ReproduceThe script fails to pull in the keyring so I manually wget && dpkg -i kali-archive-keyring_2022.1_all.deb.

I then run the script. ./common.d/ script
Followed by running the or script. ./ or ./
Additional InformationI also attempted to build the images as root and none-root user with sudo privileges, with the same results. I'm left with a .img file, when mounted, contains a lost+found folder. Attempted the original build on a 2012 Macbook pro with 16 GB Ram running Kubuntu 20.04 . After 2 failed attempts, I spun up a Linode vps runing Ubuntu 22.04 LTS and Debian 11 with 150GB RAM and 8 CPUs. all builds failed except for the Pinebook Pro.

There is an error further up - could you re-run the build passing --debug and provide the log? or if you can scroll up further in your current build and screenshot that? Something in a previous step failed.

Unfortunately, I blew away the VPS thereafter, and I did not capture any other screenshots. I attempted to build another cubox-i4pro image today and used the -d -x flags to generate a log file. Thank you for your patience, and I appreciate any help that you can render me.

Okay, I see - so, we're not actually installing the kernel, or u-boot-menu in that build script.

Can you try modifying the build script and adding

status_stage3 'Install the kernel packages'
eatmydata apt-get install -y linux-image-armmp u-boot-menu u-boot-imx

to it in the "# Third Stage" area, after the echo line, and before the EOF line.

Unfortunately, I do not have the hardware, and I have no way of testing it. Contributions to get it working are greatly appreciated!

Edit: I initially forgot to add the u-boot-imx to the package listing, but that is also needed by the build script in order to install the boot loader on the sdcard.

No response from the reporter in almost 2 months, and the cubox scripts are considered to be community supported. I did try to guide them in the direction to get things going again.
