I like Argo, I like Pi's, I need an Arm64image of Argo.
A little pre-req's you will need for this.
- A Raspberry Pi (or some other ARM64 system), it's faster this way
- Your user added to the
First thing, do this on a Pi, it's actually faster than trying to use Qemu on an x86 system. By a lot.
I am not going to cover how to set up a Pi, but you will need a couple of tools installed.
To set up
git is easy.
sudo apt update sudo apt install git
I am not going to cover how to install
go. There is really good documentation on how to do that. Here are a couple of links to get you started.
Next, make sure your user is added to the
sudo usermod -a -G docker yourusername. You will need to log off and log back in after that for it to take effect.
Now that the pre-requisites are complete, we need to check out the code and start the build.
To get the code we use
git. The command for that is
git clone https://github.com/argoproj/argo-cd.git
Now that the repository is cloned, go in to it.
Check out the correct tag, the latest at the time of writing is
v2.1.6. To do that use
git checkout v2.1.6
Now we build,
make armimage. This will run for a while, for me it was about a half hour. When it is done it will output something like this:
Successfully built c3095878a525 Successfully tagged argocd:v2.1.6-arm
You can verify it exists by running
docker container ls.
They recently fixed the issue of not being able to build an image for the ARM processors, but they currently do not have any official ARM images. From what I could gather from the GitHub issue it has to do with how long it takes to build, lack of resources to test it and lack of hardware.
