First success Very Happy .

From a menu I can select sap6 and it boots to the desktop.

Keyoard isn't working, so it's only a small success Embarassed . I guess it has to do with mksqashfs. Without /lib/modules (as suggested), I get kernel panic, with these, I get no keyboard. But it's a start Wink .

I hold the line,
Rolf

Hi,
no positive news about multi boot so far. Confused

No matter I use alpha 2 or 3, including /lib/modules or not, it allways boots to the desktop and no keyboard available. I tried different options in cmdline.txt but without knowledge, only try and error. I guess that we must wait till one of the big dogs (meaning one with more knowledge than me Embarassed ) will be interested.

Differences to the HOWTO:
kpartx doesn't work for me. I couldn't find it in the Slackware repos (Slacko 5.3.3.1), using a .deb file, I wasn't patient enough to solve all dependencies. Embarassed

In Lucid 528 I could install kpartx with alll dependencies(?) but get an error message during run.

Well, at last we don't need kpartx, if we have the extracted files at partition 2 of the sd card or a copy of them (that's what I used).

I guess that all we need is the mksquash command.

The option -comp lzo doesn't work for me (get the message: not supported). So I used
Code:
# mksquashfs /mnt/sdc5/sap6a3p2 Puppy_sap6_alpha3 -e /mnt/sdc5/sap6a3p2/lib/modules

and
Code:
mksquashfs /mnt/sdc5/sap6a3p2 Puppy_sap6_alpha3

Last point, the converted file must be placed in /images.

If anybody has an idea what's wrong, please tell me. Wink

Thanks,
Rolf

Edit: a small step further. Confused
Keyboard works, but not the arrow keys and no mouse support (at least).
With F12 the menu pops up, I can select with "h","j", "k", "l" and ENTER key, no arrow keys. Mouse doesn't work. Tested both with usb and wireless.

testing Alpha4

Sound works OOTB Cool (I can only use analog)

Light browsing seems fine.

If you are interested I wrote a small gtkstatusicon in C to pop up "mixmos". It's very simple, you could make it more complex but I don't see the point.

PET <-- http://www.smokey01.com/01micko/armv6/pet_packages-wheezy/mixer_tray-0.1-armv6.pet

SOURCE <-- http://www.smokey01.com/01micko/armv6/source/mixer_tray-0.1.tar.bz2

On printing, I can't test! My printer needs either a special driver or gutenprint-5.2.8. I might compile gutenprint (overnigtht Wink ). Printing fails with cups-1.5.3 in Wheezy Arm Puppy.

First tests with alpha4:

My first impression, it's a good one. Very Happy
German keyboard layout works fine. Very Happy

Still problems with firewall. I can't install firewall during first boot or menu->Setuo->Firewall Wizard. Allways get the message
Code:
'rxvt-unicode-256color: unknown terminal type.
 Configuration terminated. Goodbye.
 Firewall install script finished.
and firewall doesn't install.

Moving to /usr/sbin and running firewallinstallsh directly works and firewall installs. Wink

I'll test more during the day/evening.

btw. Alpha4 works also with multiboot now Very Happy . No more problems with keyboard or mouse. By now I've installed 10 (ten!) distros on a 8GB sd card and still have ~ 4.2 GB free space. Razz

Finally in Alpha 4 - problems with dd in Slacko 5.3.3.2
took for ever to recognise my SD card . . .

Anyway tested sound.
Did not seem to work
typed in depmod at console and rebooted
(not even sure if that makes a real difference)

Then opened gnome mplayer from icon and was able to play ivy.mp3
This was the only file that seemed to play.
It played once and then I had to reboot to play again Shocked

The ivy.mp3 was the best test file in Puppi cockroach too incidentally. The sound is quiet even with mixmos set to full.

From strangled wasp to actual sound, progress Wink

Thia is often a hardware issue. Those cheapy (and some not so cheap) card readers are to blame, I had the same until I switched readers, now no problem.

Lobster, that bug is only in my Wheezy build, Sap6 uses the older style depmod and modules tools. Sound is working out of the box in Sap6! Smile

I think for decent sound you needa a pair of powered speakers. Since raspi is so low powered it's probably sending minimal current through the sound circuit, probably only enough to just drive your headphones. My 120W powered monitors ( read sound monitors Wink ) sound great!! Razz

Barry

When I plug in my usb HDD I don't get the drive icons (2 partitions, ntfs and ext4). Need to run Pmount to use it.

Attempting to compile gutenprint-5.2.8 now.

EDIT: Yes! Printing works for me with gutenprint-5.2.8 .. more tomorrow, having a beer now! (tested with a .doc from abiword).

EDIT2: Got that problem with Xorg not dying, had to hard power off.. I reckon it's a kernel issue because my new kernel actually powers down the Pi (different xorg version though). Sap6 has never done that. The filesystem check was started and seemed successful.


(later edits are fixing typos due to beer Rolling Eyes)

Yep that worked. I think they are 5 watt - good enough. Cool

Also downloaded the devx.
Had to copy all the devx files to /
and reboot. Is that right? Can SFS be loaded automatically yet?

Just compiled the ubiquitous 'hello world' like so:
Code:
# gcc hi.c -o hi

Maybe, but I don't know where to look for. Embarassed

After installing .img files with dd and sync (internal card reader, EeePc), I can't mount the card. Gparted shows allways yellow triangles for partition 1 and 2. After moving the swap partition to the end (or creating one), the triangles disappear and everything is fine. This worked everytime for me.

I tested 2 usb hds, one with some ext3 and ext4 partitions and one with some vfat and ext3 partitions. Drive icons work as expected. So I would guess, it's a problem with ntfs. Wink

HTH,
Rolf
