Self-hosted runners

Self-hosted runners#

For building aarch64 images, we use self-hosted GitHub runners. It is recommended to have at least two runners to allow better parallelism. Each runner is recommended to have at least 2 cores and 30 GB of disk space.

Add a new runner:

Configure your runner:

  1. Run under root:

    /bin/bash -c "$(curl -fsSL"

    This will perform the initial runner setup and create a user runner-user without sudo capabilities.

  2. Set up a new GitHub Runner under runner-user using GitHub Instructions. Do not ./ yet.

  3. Run under root:

    cd /home/runner-user/actions-runner/ && ./ install runner-user
  4. Reboot the VM to apply all updates and run GitHub runner.
