Project description

This is a simple yet modular SoC configuration utility, very much like raspi-config and others alike. This one is written in Python and it aims to be extendable. The name has no other meaning than it’s a real word and it starts with SoC ;)


Preliminary support for following has been implemented:

  • Configure hostname

  • Configure timezone

  • Configure wired/wireless network interfaces on Debian

  • Switch off bells and whistles if it is used via UART


Following boards will be supported:

  • Banana

  • Cubieboard2

  • Cubietruck

  • Raspberry Pi

  • ZYBO

  • Radxa

Short term goals

  • Support u-boot configuration parsing, modifying

  • Support /etc/modules parsing and modifying

  • Support configuring of remote management clients like Puppet and Salt minion

  • Support configuring VPN clients like OpenVPN and StrongSwan

Long term goals

  • Support Debian adoption on SoC-s

  • Support for generating root filesystem images using debootstrap/febootstrap/arch-bootstrap etc

  • Support for managing PL bitstream files
