Golang on Raspberry Pi
Here are a few of the references I used to get it working:
- Tutorial to build from source from Dave Cheney. Also has some great info for setting up swap and increasing the amount of RAM available by reclaiming video memory
- This is a wonderful tutorial on how to build from the Debian sources which will give you nicely packaged deb files.
- Pi Patch By Dave Cheney
Between the three of those
I have a working installation and my test app is pretty snappy. The embedded web-server and test app are running on less than 1mb of memory so far. For anyone who is interested I uploaded the .deb files so you can install them via dpkg instead of waiting on it to compile.
I also got a $10 wifi dongle I purchased on eBay working, great fun this weekend.
Update: Although having Debian packages would be nice the method I used had some issues when using cgo. For this reason I would highly recommend building from the current repository tip from source using the first tutorial above by Dave Cheney. By doing so you will no longer need to apply the patch listed.
