Install for the Gigabyte Brix 2807 in a chroot on a more capable system.
Ask the Brix what its CFLAGS and CPU_FLAGS_X86 are and set that in chroot.
Build a binary package in the chroot and install the binary on the Brix.
Set up the Brix as an NFS fileserver and export its entire root filesystem.
Mount this NFS export on a more capable system at say /mnt/Brix
Mount the hosts /sys/, /dev and /proc inside /mnt/Brix. Now chroot into /mnt/Brix in the normal way.
Anything you build in the chroot will be build by the more powerful system and installed on the Brix over the network.
NFS is not secure, so you can only do this on a trusted network.
Computer users fall into two groups:-
those that do backups
those that have never had a hard drive fail.
