I would like to work on ubuntu core snappy for raspberry Pi 2. I got a the image - ubuntu-15.04-snappy-armhf-raspi2. How do I get the corresponding source code?

Thanks. Said


Ubuntu Core is directly build from the Ubuntu distribution, just with a different set of packages.

So, what happens during builds is basically a traditional live creation, and removal of the debs and apt metadata in /var/lib.

To get this Ubuntu source code, you can simply refer to Where can I find the source code of Ubuntu? for instance!

  • But how do I build the same Ubuntu Core image as I can download for e.g. raspberry pi 3 myself? Mar 29 '17 at 12:49

    I agree with @BjarkeFreund-Hansen The question isn't "Where can I find Ubuntu source code so I can change it into Snappy Ubuntu Core source code?". The question is where is Snappy Ubuntu Core source code that can be compiled in one step? Aug 26 '17 at 2:15
