I have downloaded the GPL source from
I have an Ubuntu VM (14.04), I have installed qemu-user-static and binfmt-support packages as suggested.
How on earth do you actually rebuild a debian package using this system? I think the instructions provided are:
(1) incomplete (builds terminate in chroot)
(2) incompatible (in one README we are directed to do the build in Ubuntu 10.04, which is wholly incompatible with the remainder of the instructions)
Can someone please post step-by-step instructions on what EXACTLY we have to do in order to build a, say, ‘git’ package for the WD My Cloud? I’m very frustrated that git and a great many other packages are broken from apt-get in the new 4.00 firmware release, which is 90% of the backup use I had for my WD My Cloud.
I am linux knowledgeable, but guessing my way through chroot jail code (and, for example, whether I am supposed to copy over the patched binutils to one directory or another) seems like a bit much to ask for users who don’t want to void their warranty.
I’d appreciate a prompt and complete response.
