Do you want to build Chrome from source to?

I have  google doc that explains how building chromeos from source used to
work. Chromeos is quite a monster to build, and my google doc is out of
date (something changed), but it's possible to build a lot from source.
Just have a reasonably powerful CPU handy.


One of the side goals of my u-root project is to create a root file system
that is small and simple and might replace chromeos someday. In u-root,
programs are dynamically compiled when you run them, so the root is mostly
