Vorteile von Android™ vs. Linux

Technische GrundlagenAndroid™ basiert auf dem Linux-Kernel, optimiert ihn aber besonders auf embedded Systeme & mobile Plattformen.Android nutzt den Linux Kernel mit einigen Anpassungen. Es unterscheidet sich jedoch grundlegend von üblichen Linux Distributionen, wie bspw. Debian / Raspbian / Alpine Linux.Üblicherweise nutzen Distributionen die GNU C Bibliothek (glibc), und einen X server (bspw. Xorg) für grafische [...]

Using nuitka compiler for python3 on Alpine Linux ARMHF (musl)

Motivationpidoctor is written in Python (as there was no easy way to get Crystal to work on ARMHF / musl). This means a dependency on Python – which adds overhead. I suspect that this overhead is the reason that pidoctor will not run on 256 MB Raspberry Pi’s – because the RAM is exhausted by [...]

Debugging the Alpine boot process

As discussed in my previous post, Alpine Linux goes through several stages when it boots. Just after mounting the boot media, and scanning it for apkovl’s (with nlplug-findfs), there is an option for you to get a console, by setting $SINGLEMODE to yes. Setting SINGLEMODE to yes is easy, you simply add the word “single” [...]
