I found that somebody already created a Debian Jessie image for the RPI2. The image was a perfect base for the SolydX RPI2: no DE, just the bare minimum.
I'm not going to support this but I'll make it available as a community edition.
You can download it here:
http://downloads.solydxk.nl/ce/rpi/soly ... img.tar.gz
http://downloads.solydxk.nl/ce/rpi/soly ... tar.gz.md5
Note: this image cannot run on the RPI1!
Unpack and dd to an SD card of at least 4GB:
Code: Select all
sudo dd if=2015-04-21-solydxrpi2.img of=/dev/sdb bs=4M && sync
When you boot the first time, it will expand the rootfs to fully use the capacity of your SD. For about 10 seconds you will see nothing more than a blinking cursor after which your system will reboot.
You will find a launcher on the desktop to configure the system. Use that to expand the partition. That way, your entire SD will be used.

There are some things that I haven't found out yet:
- Build and package Kodi for RPI2.
- I only get the text theme of Plymouth to work.
I've attached my notes.
