AppImage

Create an AppImage with latest libs, which works everywhere

Hello community!

While I understand, that it is recommend to create AppImages on the oldest still supported platform, but I need the opposite…

I want to run an App, compiled on ArchLinux, which needs to be run still on Ubuntu 16.04 if needed. I don’t care about the size.

I searched the web and docs, but did not find anything about that. Did I overlook something? Just a hint in the correct direction would be nice :wink:

  1. All libs listed with ldd must be included. :white_check_mark:
  2. Is there anything else needed to do?

For example, I got symbolic errors with glibc while running mkdir… is there anything I can do about it?

Thanks for your effort!

AppImages are great for portability and would like to see that this method get spread more.
