Problem: Building on a Berryboot iscsci Raspbian
#1
Hi, i am new with moode and after playing with the image i would like to make it more permanent.
Based on years of experience with micro sd cards and the fact they get defect i work for some years now with berryboot. I mount the os from the iscsci chanel and this way the microsd is minimally used. Making a bootable raspbian image is not the hard part but from here building up moode seems to be a bit tricky. 

I have a running raspbian with the following disk structure :

Disk /dev/mmcblk0: 15 GiB, 16106127360 bytes, 31457280 sectors
Units: sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disklabel type: dos
Disk identifier: 0x7ee80803

Device         Boot Start      End  Sectors Size Id Type
/dev/mmcblk0p1       2048 31439204 31437157  15G  b W95 FAT32 >> microsd with berryboot on it


Disk /dev/sda: 20 GiB, 21474836480 bytes, 41943040 sectors >> mounted iscsci device
Units: sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disklabel type: dos
Disk identifier: 0xbdc27c91

Device     Boot  Start      End  Sectors  Size Id Type
/dev/sda1       262144 41943039 41680896 19.9G 83 Linux >> formatted with Raspbian small image without gui.
root@music:/home/pi#

When i launch on this set the installation script the whole system will not boot afterwards and it seems logic since the script at that point in time writes into the berryboot config files.

Is there a way i could pull moode from git directly to my pi, or is there another way to build up, and keep it up to date with the latest builds? 



any help welcome 

regards

I have no experience with berryboot and won't comment on it.

The manual build recipe for moOde is available in the moOde github repo (just clone it or go to https://github.com/moode-player/moode; either way, look for /other/build/build_recipe_v2.9.txt)

It's been automated in the mosbuild script (https://github.com/moode-player/mosbuild).

Using berryboot seems way too much work though. Why not just exploit the ability of recent vintage RPis to either boot from SDcard and mount the root filesystem from other sources, or directly boot from USB or network drive?
