Longtime erlang guy, but new to nerves. We are trying to get Nerves running for a new project, but are running into very long firmware build times (15+mins) for even very simple example projects. This is with a fresh install of latest versions of elixir/nerves on a powerful macbook pro.
It gets stuck here:
Updating base firmware image with Erlang release…
Copying rootfs_overlay: /Users/…/nerves_test/_build/rpi3_dev/nerves/rootfs_overlay
Copying rootfs_overlay: /Users/…/nerves_test/rootfs_overlay
[15min + delay]
–verbose flags doesn’t provide any more details for these steps.
I assume 15+mins to build blinky (even if we build after no changes have been made) on an MBP isn’t normal. Any pointers on how to solve or debug this are much appreciated.
