Hi all,
pretty much what the title say: can I setup an environment where I can compile everything needed from git and/or sources to get Ekos up and running on the RPi, without using the RPi?

Thanks!

Any particular reason why? Because compiling directly on RPi is not that bad. Full build takes about hour on my RPi4

Well, I only have this one RPi and I need it in the field, so in part is to preserve it for the job I bought it for.
But also, out of curiosity, just to see if it's feasible at all.

The arm architecture is compiled for Fedora with a cross-compilation, so it certainly can be done. It is just a question of where you want to spend your time to keep the build configuration up to date vs. building natively.

If you are so inclined, there are compilation logs linked in there that may help with cross-compiler flags to use.

Buy another SD card and switch these, or buy another RPi4. I would believe the price point is not that prohibitive.
I compile / develop on a RPi3.
