Spin build quickstart

Pre-requisites for non-AArch64 hosts

On non-AArch64 hosts, install qemu-user-static and restart the binfmt service:

$ sudo dnf --assumeyes install qemu-user-static
$ sudo systemctl restart systemd-binfmt.service


The instructions below will use the podman command. Only Podman is supported for this workflow.

First, pull down the container of the required environment (Fedora Linux 36 or higher works). We'll use Fedora Linux 37.

$ sudo podman pull registry.fedoraproject.org/fedora:37-aarch64

Assuming you're in the root directory of the Git checkout, set up the container:

$ sudo podman run --privileged --rm -it -v $PWD:/code:z -w /code registry.fedoraproject.org/fedora:37-aarch64 /bin/bash

Once in the container environment, set up your development environment and run the image build (substitute <image_type> and <image_profile> for the appropriate settings):

# Install kiwi
[]$ dnf --assumeyes install kiwi
# Run the image build
[]$ kiwi-ng --type=<image_type> --profile=<image_profile> --color-output system build --description ./ --target-dir ./outdir
