Using FAI to build Live debian images for ARM developer boards

Speaker: Riku Voipio

FAI was chosen as the standard tool to build cloud images. This talk explores the experiences of using FAI to build live images for ARM based platforms, such as 96boards Hikey and Dragonboard 410C. Using standards compliant firmware, same FAI image can be booted from many different ARM platforms without modifications. Since on ARM platforms using premade images remains more popular than using installers, the talk will discuss how Debian could provide such images for people.
