Building / Installing Go on the Raspberry Pi or Ubuntu
###############################################################################
# Building Go on the Raspberry Pi
###############################################################################
# Based on the work of Dave Cheney
# http://dave.cheney.net/2015/09/04/building-go-1-5-on-the-raspberry-pi
# Also info in the docs:
# https://github.com/golang/go/blob/master/src/make.bash
###############################################################################
### Set project area
export MYPROJROOT=~/Projects
export MYPKGNAME=go
export MYPKGVER=1.10.1
export MYPKGOS=linux
export MYPKGARCH=armv6l # Pi, etc.
#export MYPKGARCH=amd64 # Intel architectures
export MYPKGDEST=/usr/local/${MYPKGNAME}-${MYPKGVER}
### Preparation
mkdir -p ${MYPROJROOT}
cd ${MYPROJROOT}
rm -rf ${MYPKGNAME} ${MYPKGNAME}-${MYPKGVER}
### Obtaining binaries to use
### Option 1: Using the pre-compiled version (1.6.x and later!):
# Get the release binaries
cd ${MYPROJROOT}
wget https://storage.googleapis.com/golang/go${MYPKGVER}.${MYPKGOS}-${MYPKGARCH}.tar.gz
tar xzf ${MYPKGNAME}${MYPKGVER}.${MYPKGOS}-${MYPKGARCH}.tar.gz
mv ${MYPKGNAME} ${MYPKGNAME}-${MYPKGVER}
### Option 2: Building from source:
# Lower the ulimit to prevent problems
ulimit -s
ulimit -s 1024
ulimit -s
# Get the source
cd ${MYPROJROOT}
wget https://storage.googleapis.com/golang/go${MYPKGVER}.src.tar.gz
tar xzf ${MYPKGNAME}${MYPKGVER}.src.tar.gz
mv ${MYPKGNAME} ${MYPKGNAME}-${MYPKGVER}
# Bootstrapping
export MYBOOTSTRAP=/usr/local/${MYPKGNAME}
if [ ! -d ${MYBOOTSTRAP} ]; then
# Never had Go installed
cd ${MYPROJROOT}
wget http://dave.cheney.net/paste/go-linux-arm-bootstrap-c788a8e.tbz # For ARM
tar xjf go-linux-arm-bootstrap-c788a8e.tbz
export MYBOOTSTRAP=${MYPROJROOT}/go-linux-arm-bootstrap
fi
echo ${MYBOOTSTRAP}
# Build Go
cd ${MYPROJROOT}/${MYPKGNAME}-${MYPKGVER}/src
env GO_TEST_TIMEOUT_SCALE=10 GOROOT_BOOTSTRAP=${MYBOOTSTRAP} GOROOT_FINAL=${MYPKGDEST} ./all.bash
### Install the package
cd ${MYPROJROOT}
sudo rm -rf /usr/local/${MYPKGNAME}-${MYPKGVER}
sudo cp -rp ${MYPROJROOT}/${MYPKGNAME}-${MYPKGVER} /usr/local
sudo chown root:staff /usr/local/${MYPKGNAME}-${MYPKGVER}
#sudo chown root:root /usr/local/${MYPKGNAME}-${MYPKGVER} # Ubuntu
sudo chmod -R g-s /usr/local/${MYPKGNAME}-${MYPKGVER}
sudo rm /usr/local/${MYPKGNAME}
sudo ln -s /usr/local/${MYPKGNAME}-${MYPKGVER} /usr/local/${MYPKGNAME}
### Test the installation
# Ensure the package is in your path (e.g., edit your .profile, then source it with `. ~/.profile`)
export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/go/bin
cd $HOME
go version
go version goX.Y.Z linux/arm
# Note: if you get something like "go: cannot find GOROOT directory: /foo/bar/blah"
# ensure that path exists. GOROOT_FINAL mediates that (above)
### Clean up
rm -rf ${MYPROJROOT}/${MYPKGNAME}-${MYPKGVER}

I've learned that gist has a major old bug wherein you don't get notifications for comments to gists.

If you leave a comment, it would be appreciated if you ping me elsewhere so I know to find it!

Bug on line 53 It should not have ~/Projects/ hard coded, it should use ${MYPROJROOT} instead.
