Build VM status summary


I wrote up a quick summary/walkthrough with some short videos on for those wanting a quick summary of the status of Status Tracking for Build VM


have you thought about documenting which snapcraft version/channel we need? The statement that “you just need to run snapcraft to get a resulting snap. Given that we set the base to core18 a virtual machine will be setup” is wrong:

$ snapcraft

I do have base: core18 in my snapcraft.yaml.

$ snapcraft version
snapcraft, version 2.42.1


I am showing rather unreleased code :slight_smile: Maybe I should have written, all you _will_need to do.

You need to be on edge/bases, set SNAPCRAFT_BUILD_ENVIRONMENT=qemu and install (for now) qemu-system-x86 and cloud-utils.


excellent, thanks, I’ll give it a gander :slight_smile:


Feel free to reach out on irc or telegram for an expedited getting started, I do acknowledge that it might be to early if you want click and run :slight_smile:
