I’m playing around with building a custom Ubuntu Core image for a Raspberry Pi-based device, to take a project I’m working on from using Raspbian to instead be more robust and scalable with Ubuntu Core.
So far I’ve successfully built a gadget and kernel snap, and created my own image - this all works quite nicely.
One thing that my existing code on Raspbian relies upon is the
vcgencmd utility, from the Raspberry Pi “userland” library. So far I haven’t found any reference to using
vcgencmd on the Pi with Ubuntu Core - is there some way to include it? Before I go and try to build a snap for it, I thought I’d see if anyone has crossed this bridge already.
