I want to know if it is possible to allow my system created by buildroot, to automate the execution of script which would allow for example,

  • to switch from qwerty to azerty (maybe this option exists in buildroot but I did not find it)
  • clone projects in a specific folder
  • to execute services
  • ...

All this without having to modify anything on the system at startup.

Thanks in advance for your precious help.

  • it is unclear what you are asking ... a linux system can do whatever you program it to do ... for example, it already starts services at bootup time

  • Ditto that this would be better off on U&L or SO (~1500 questions tagged buildroot). This looks to be about configuring the system before it is run (and/or adding a service to do initial configuration at first boot), which might be better off done outside buildroot once the root fs is created.

  • to switch from qwerty to azerty
  • to execute services

You can add a script to /etc/init.d in the rootfs overlay (BR2_ROOTFS_OVERLAY).

  • clone projects in a specific folder

This can be done in the post build script (BR2_ROOTFS_POST_BUILD_SCRIPT).

For details, https://buildroot.org/downloads/manual/manual.html#customize.
