###
- nG: A base for xbps 100% GNU free
- nG is not an actual distro but rather a write up
- on the requirements for setting an xbps system
- 100% without GNU
- nG only provides the basics for avoiding GNU
- while creating a base xbps chroot
---
- See `./deplist` for a list of dependencies + there replacements
---
- Setup:
- 1: start by creating a new folder "somewhere" (the folder is called <ROOT>)
- 2: steal a copy of the go compiler from alpine (see `./deplist`) and add it to your PATH
- 3: make sure a posix shell is present on the host system
- 4: compile/obtain a copy of bmake
- 5: obtain a copy of the kati source code
- 6: enter the folder of said source code and apply `./make.patch` using patch
- 7: compile kati via `bmake kati` (requires go and ninja (see `./deplist`))
- This will produce a `ckati` binary, it can be used as a replacement for (GNU)make
- With the following flags
- `ckati --ninja --ninja_dir=build --regen --use_find_emulator --color_warnings`
- This requires a `./build` folder; and produces a `<>/build/ninja.sh` script
- Run said `<>/build/ninja.sh` script to compile (GNU)make projects
- 8: compile/obtain a copy of busybox (requires (GNU)make; use ckati; see above)
- Set it's prefix to <ROOT> when compiling; otherwise install to <ROOT>/(usr/)
- 9: compile/obtain a copy of musl (requires (GNU)make; use ckati; see 7)
- Set it's prefix to <ROOT> when compiling; otherwise install to <ROOT>/
-- The above creates a stage 0 system
-- Below is for compiling xbps; static xbps can be used
- 10: compile/obtain a C99 compiler (tcc, pcc, clang)
