Subject description: Debian Wheezy Build
 

Intoducing Zap6 (codename "cockroach")

This is Puppy for the Raspberry Pi built from Woof2 with Debian Wheezy packages.

Download 99M

devx
Barry's devx loading guide:
Quote:
Click on the devx_xxx.sfs in a ROX-Filer window to mount it.
Open a terminal in the mounted directory.
# cp -a --remove-destination ./* /mnt/sda2/ ###THIS WILL VARY (mm0p2??)
# sync
Close the terminal.
Click on the devx_xxx.sfs file to unmount it

EDIT: Here's how I do it on the Pi while system is running
load devx onto a usb device
plug into Pi
mount the device from drive icon
mount the devx_xxx.sfs by clicking it
open a terminal in the mounted directory
run:
# cp -a --remove-destination ./* /
# sync
Close the terminal.
Click on the devx_xxx.sfs file to unmount it


Please see the notes below.

NOTES


Disclaimer: While all care is taken I cannot accept any responsibility if anything bad happens.

This is an alpha build for testing and evaluation. You probably should use Barry's Sap6 if you are after stability, it is built from Debian Squeeze (stable) packages. If you want bleeding edgy try this. it's a fair bit more bloated than Sap6 because of extra deps needed for Wheezy packages. this is NOT the latest woof, as woof has been extensively hacked! More later on that, with documentation and patches for woof.

Features
    jwm_menu_create from technosaurus for faster fixmenus
    new tray icon to start mixmos mixer (source)
    bleeding edge kernel and firmware from GIT. Kernel patched for unionfs (may try aufs next time, build kit under development)
    Iceape (seamonkey) browser (feature or bug? Rolling Eyes Confused ), plus chatzilla, mail, composer.
    Playmusic linked to mpg-321 for mp3 playback, mplayer for other formats


Known Issues
    Quicksetup doesn't work right. timezone info has changed, look for "posix" entries if you can't find yours, fix pending. Also, the Psync auto time zone check box fails to appear, use Psync manually from the menu, it works.
    Sound does not work OOTB. I think it's a kernel bug, plus Wheezy has totally changed modules_init_tools for kmod, which is a multicall binary for depmod, lsmod, modinfo etc.To fix, run depmod in a terminal and reboot, sound should then work. You may have to set amixer manually as the new gui in quicksetup doesn't show.
    An error occurs when you start any of the Iceape apps, click ok and ignore it. It is to do with dbus, I will need to recompile it.
    There is no defaultmediaplayer, mplayer is there and working but gnome-mplayer is omitted. You could try to get it from PPM but it requires GTK-3. I'll recompile gnome-mplayer against gtk+-2 later.
    The kernel is not entirely stable, I have had one kernel crash at startup in 3 days testing, not too bad, just reboot. The raspi actually does power down with this kernel so that's cool. Can someone tell me if HDMI sound works? There is all new firmware.


The raspi isn't really much chop for web browsing. Iceape works but it is really too heavy, just as chromium is. We really do need a lighter one. Explore the PPM, there are heaps of browsers, I may find an alternative. Midori is a flop, Slackware is the only distro where it works good.

Omxplayer is not included. It's still a bit rough around the gills, but is probably going to be the best video player for the raspi. Use rhadon's package (direct download).

Ok, have fun everybody!

Thanks Mick

I am in Cool

Read your notes and can confirm some of the alpha bugs - setting time was not possible (I think I may be in Dubai time zone) Shocked

Just been trying to get sound working using old method (modeprobe etc)
- did not really understand your suggestion, Mick Embarassed Needs a rolf.

Iceape works in a familiar way (appreciate it is big) but it has a built in HTML visual editor and other goodies as you know

The keyboard keys seem more responsive (they worked like syrup on SAP)
however that can also be a hardware glitch . . .

Anyway congratulations.
Woof build on ARM - quite an achievement. Very Happy

I hope others try it and we get more feedback.

Gonna try and make sense of all this on the wiki Confused

. . . and then another go with sound Cool

Lobster,

To get sound working:

START

1.open a terminal

2. type
Code:
depmod
and hit Enter/Return

3. Reboot the computer.

END

------------------------------------

When the Pi first boots you do see that "depmod" is run, but at that point it is "busybox depmod". I don't think that's enough for Barry's new scripts to load the sound driver in Zap6 (aka cockroach). As I said, there is a new type of depmod, lsmod, modprobe, modinfo, rmmod in this version. They are all linked to a multicall binary called "kmod". Running this new depmod seems to be enough to get lsmod and modprobe to work. It is a bit strange.

Once you reboot, Barry's new script /etc/init.d/11alsa_raspi loads the sound driver and sets the amixer to analog. No need for the fancy stuff.

To fix this, I will have to hack /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit and replace the "busybox depmod" call with "depmod", that should work.

HTH

No sound HDMI or headphone jack

depmod ran

I got mixmos to run from command line and was able to up sound level to max
(ran from iconbar icon but I could not up sound)
ran aplayer login.wav and it ran aplayer but never finished (no #)
So this means it is locking up/looping - don't know?

In better news Puppi cockroach is loading from switch on in 23 seconds to desktop (second and consequent boots)

That is fast. Very Happy

aplay is definitely broken. Don't use it to test sound! (broken in sap6 too)

Use an mp3 file with mpg321, or ogg with mplayer, flac with mplayer.

thanks for help Mick

OK real sound coming from headphone socket.
It is quiet (mixmos set to max) but it is 'Ivy - and she don't care'

Still trying to get HDMI output

Subject description: Excellent work!
 

Hi Micko,
Great work on "cockroach".

I would love to have a go at using Woof2 myself, but I got into rather a pickle last time I tried ...
Maybe over the summer!

Will download and test soon Smile .

@rhadon

I for one would appreciate anything you contribute with your testing. Got my Pi running with Sap-6. HDMI sound worked for awhile after I used Mickos sound selection gui (above). About to try RacyPi later this evening.

Nice work Mick!
Will check it out, as in Sap6 (Squeeze) my Logitech 910 UVC webcam is not working.
Maybe it will in Zap6, as it works in Rhaspian Wheezy.
Will compile luvcview to check it.

I just checked that Puppybrowser is working fine:

success, after some tweaks Smile

kernel.img, /lib/modules and /opt/vc from https://github.com/Hexxeh/rpi-firmware copied to zap6.
To download, I used my Desktop-computer running fluppy013 with devx:

Code:
mkdir /root/git
cd /root/git
git clone http://github.com/Hexxeh/rpi-firmware.git . --depth=1


zipped /modules in /root/git (tar -czvf modules.tgz modules) and copied it on the raspi (use scp or a usb-stick) and extracted in /lib/ (cd /lib;tar -xzvf modules.tgz).

Do the same then with opt to get files required by omxplayer (note that the omxplayer.pet overrides them again with outdated ones, so install that pet before! Had no time yet to check if it works again,must copy again tomorrow).

And I copied these files to the first partition:
bootcode.bin
fixup.dat
start.elf
kernel.img


I also added this line to config.txt on the first partition:
Code:
gpu_mem=64


Rebooted zap6 and typed "depmod".

Now I have 448 MB free memory!

I had tried the non-cutdown 3.1.9 Kernel too, but it had no correct support for video4linux with the Logitech C 910 Webcam.

Now with the new kernel I can use the luvcview deb even for higher resolutions, fine (not fast though, 1 fps at 1280x720, but this is great for the small raspi).

http://packages.debian.org/wheezy/luvcview
needs also
http://packages.debian.org/wheezy/libv4lconvert0 and maybe libv4l-0 (installed it, but not certain if required).

To get my mouse working after the upgrade (Hit ctrl-alt-F2 to get a console):

Code:
rm /dev/mouse
ln -s /dev/usbmouse /dev/mouse
sync
reboot


To get a german keyboard-layout in X:
Code:
setxkbmap de


(I added this as script to /root/Startup).

Note: I had errors extracting the zap image, but it went fine with "bs=4M":

Code:
unxz --stdout raspi-sd-4gb-zap6-5.100-ALPHA1.img.xz | dd bs=4M of=/dev/sdYOURDRIVE;sync



Cheers, Mark
