The new alpha image for the raspberrypi is out. I encourage you to test it out and report any bugs that you notice. Also the default run level is 3 so it boots into text mode, if you would like to test out the GUI "Graphical User Interface" you will need to run the following command from the CLI "Command Line Interface".

Because this is just an alpha release and we are still working on firstboot you will need to login as "root", the default password is "raspberrypi".

Login: root
Password: raspberrypi

start GUI cmd:
startxfce4

rpfr-f18-alpha-v5 image:

Andrew,
Chris Tyler is right, you truly are the “Repro Guru” Two releases in two days
Well done hats off to you (It would have to be a Fedora!) :lol:
Christmas has come early this year for us!
Now if only I could decide which of the two to take for a test-drive first!
To a person with a hammer, everything looks like a nail.

I installed the Fedora 18 beta-2 images today. And all looks great so far. My notes soon. Thanks!

Hi,

I have just copied the image from rpfr-f18-beta-2.zip,
which I downloaded from
http://scotland.proximity.on.ca/arm-nig ... -rpi-remix
onto my sd card, but the pi does not boot.

I verified, that the rpfr-17-xfce-r2.zip boots fine with the sd card,
which is a 32 GB SanDisk Ultra.

Any ideas? When is the final release to be expected?

Strange, I am using the same image. Did you try both HDMI and composite video? In my case, it worked the first time with HDMI, but then afterwards only composite seemed to be working.

Can you share your /boot/config.txt?

Thanks.

I did not change anything, thus it is the one on the image.
The Monitor is connected via HDMI - it should boot!

Strange. I may sound stupid, but I hope you extracted the .zip file and wrote the .img file to the disk? Believe it or not, I was wrongly writing the .zip file without extracting it, and couldn't think why it wasn't booting. :(.

Also, did you try the composite video output?

Hi amitsaha,

Yes, I did.

> Also, did you try the composite video output?

I don't have a tv, and do not plan to buy one.

Thanks for asking.

I assumed it could be the 32 Gbyte SD-card - therefore I tried another one
with 4 GByte - and this one booted without any problems :-)

So problem is solved, thank you very much.

Can you try cleaning the meta data and try to install again? To clean:

Code: Select all
# yum clean
# yum -y install httpd

Does that help?

This maybe helps: I did
#yum remove raspberrypi-fedora-remix-logos
#yum install httpd
#yum install raspberrypi-fedora-remix-logos

after this httpd worked after configuring /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf
[root@raspi01 conf]# systemctl start httpd.service

Ah, I discovered this a few days ago and have been trying to find time to figure out who and how to properly submit a fix. This is because whoever created the raspberrypi-remix-logos package didn't include fedora-logos in the provides.

After downloading the srcrpm and modifying it to include fedora-logos and installing, another dependency issue cropped up. Something else (can't remember what) required system-logos to be provided at greater than 7.something.

Here is a simple diff that brings corrects the problems and brings the logos into line with the current fedora-logos that it is trying to replace (of course, I had to rename the source directory and create a new tarball before rebuilding):
Code: Select all
[root@nemo SPECS]# diff raspberrypi-remix-logos.spec raspberrypi-remix-logos.original.spec
3c3
< Version: 17.0.3
---
> Version: 1
7c7
< Source0: raspberrypi-fedora-remix-logos-17.0.3.tar.gz
---
> Source0: raspberrypi-fedora-remix-logos-1.tar.gz
17d16
< Provides: fedora-logos = %{version}-%{release}

I realized this yesterday I forgot to add an obsoletes line to the package but the issue has been resolved as of yesterday.

If you do a yum clean all then a yum update you will install the new updated package.

Once again thanks for bringing this up. If you guys notice any other weird issue please contact me with details about the issue and I will do my best to fix them.

Nice job on a quick and effective turnaround on this. I just did a yum downgrade to replace my (higher versioned) quickndirty rpm with your version 1-3, and it appears to work as intended.

Thanks, Scott

Thanks Andrew, I did a yum clean all, and yum update, and got the new version correctly.
Another good step forward, in a very short time!

fedora18 hangs using rsync or tar on raspberry-pi version2.
Having a usb-disk with rootfs on it, booting from sd-card.
rsync version 3.0.9 is last version.
syncing via network or using tar on usb hard-disk hangs my raspberry-pi version 2 completely.
Have to power-down and up to get it running again. No info in /var/log/messages.
A domotiga system runs for weeks without problem. (with active mysql database, httpd server running with php support.)

Is there a firmware update, newer kernel or adjustment nescessary?

I am currently working on updating the kernel package for the final release , however im not sure at the moment if this will have any affect your current issue. But I will look into it for you and see what I can do.

I have just copied the image from rpfr-f18-beta-2.zip,
which I downloaded from
http://scotland.proximity.on.ca/arm-nig ... -rpi-remix
onto my sd card, but the pi does not boot.

I verified, that the rpfr-17-xfce-r2.zip boots fine with the sd card,
which is a 32 GB SanDisk Ultra.

Any ideas? When is the final release to be expected?


Strange, I am using the same image. Did you try both HDMI and composite video? In my case, it worked the first time with HDMI, but then afterwards only composite seemed to be working.

Can you share your /boot/config.txt?

Thanks.


Most Current 3.1 and 3.2 kernels from images like rpfr-f18-beta-2 miss this settings and patches for that.

CONFIG_MMC_SDHCI_BCM2708=y
CONFIG_MMC_SDHCI_BCM2708_DMA=y

This are nessary for Cards +32GB.

Hi Remsnet, was trying your suggestion about an new kernel build, but following line gives errors:

wget http://pastebin.com/ZFKG5Mm6 config-371-saved

can I rename ZFKG5Mm6 manually to config-371-saved and continue the process?

Well ,

For that fauxpass :)
but Sorry ! - RTFMLC - Read The ******* Manuals Linux Contains ! -

I am assume that new Linux users may not use this script 1:1 ,
but the bits with the information it contains. :)

Open the URL http://pastebin.com/ZFKG5Mm6 manualy in an browser instead of wget...
That show you its contents ;-) - it contains an Moded & tested 3.7.5 .config for an RPI.

If you RUN debian / FC you can use instead of the wget also :

Code: Select all
zcat /proc/config.gz >config-371-saved


witch contains your current kernel Config.

kind regards
