Great to see more Pi owners on here . I am hoping mine is waiting at home for me right now!

Long live the Do-ocracy!

I am going through the jwm setup using Arch again.

Step 3 has been updated
- the pacman program has to be updated

Quote:
Step 3 Update 'Arch'
Arch is a rolling release - constantly updated .
Update command can take a while - took about 20 minutes on broadband

pacman -S pacman
pacman -Syu


there are also some procedures based around xinit/xstart
to prepare JWM that I have not documented and frankly am not sure how to implement

. . . hopefully Mark will have a Raspberry Pi shortly and can help out with info Smile
. . . hope the postman delivered . . .

Decided to edit configs rc.conf, locales, mirrorlist

Switched mirrors to Germany based ones and got a load of different updates

Now get a better looking console display

Tried to get openbox to run but needed xorg loaded first

Managed to get X running but system locked up while installing firefox. ..so called it a day

Odd thing with lspci was not able to get any output

Did add a swapfile I know you are not meant to use one with sd card but I could not stand the pain of waiting for packages to load.

This of course could be solved if running from ram...

The post-person delivered.
I am very happy to say that the sd card I prepared with my arch-arm puppi filesystem and the boot partition from the original image booted up first time!

When I do "startx" in the R_pi terminal I get the LXDE enviornment with LXTerminal, Midori, PCManFM plus a number of other applications.

When I do a "sudo xinit /usr/bin/jwm" in the R_pi terminal, I get an empty JWM screen. When I click on the JWM button in the left lower corner of the screen, I get all of the same menus (and active programs) that were in the LXDE desktop!

Question: How do I get "startx" to bring up the JWM enviornment rather than LXDE, and get rxvt and rox-filer as options in the menus rather than the applications that are default in LXDE?


You need to edit the "xinitrc" file. This is found in /etc/x11/xinit.

You can leave most of it as is, but add
Code:
rox -p pin
jwm

at the end seems to work best.

Does Arch not have a repository of pre-compiled stuff that you can download from?

Yes, but Barry wanted to compile some of the Puppy old favourites from ourselves.

Question #3: How do I change the screen resolution to something like 1024 x 768?


qemu lets you go up to 800x600. Try using the file I've attached a pic of as your xorg.conf.

This is the img I tried booting and failed? Embarassed

I am having problems with my SD card, it is not booting to the standard Arch img at the moment.

Your img is far more developed than my early attempts so this would be a great alpha release . . .

So glad you have hardware Smile

Hmmm, need to revise my earlier announcement Embarassed
It did boot up as you could see, but no mouse or keyboard input was detected.
Since then I've been trying different set-ups. It seems than only one of the SD cards I own will actually work in the Pi. Hopefully I can overcome my input device problems later ...

Yes, now I wish I'd stuck with that set-up a bit longer and tried to trouble-shoot it (I had no mouse or keyboard, it turned out). Instead, I tried starting again with preparing the SD card and I've had kernel panic problems ever since. Giving up now - will try in the morning.

Actually it's a later version than the one i shared online. But since that promising beginning, I've had no luck at all!
I think I need to buy a new SD card and start over in the morning. The only one I have that seems to want to work is <2gb. So, quite tricky to work with.

I had two SD cards ready, neither was any good. Confused

Argos do a recommended Transcend card with no problems at a fair price.

Your initial boot pic was an impressive success. Cool

The most usual prob with keyboard and mouse is using a hub. Go straight in to the two USB ports. Also the best USB keyboard and mouse are generic clones. I used an Apple keyboard to start with. The Apple keyboard had two USB ports so is a hub too - not ideal.

Guys we are very near to the bare metal
and our frustrations will be turned into success for later adopters.

The Debian image is very much more stable and complete . . .
BUT without a doubt the Arch image has the cutting edge speed we crave . . . Cool
http://archlinuxarm.org/

When Barry gets his Raspberry we will (all going well) have a woof2 standard base to work with.

Marks RacyPi innovation could be equally important Cool

It is important we document our successes.

I should have gone to argos ...
Instead I have spent quite a lot of time trying to fit the Arch image onto my sub 2gb card.
Anyway, getting somewhere now!
I will document any success, when I find it!
