Re: accelerated desktop with wayland / weston

Hey, dmp!

I created the package libgbm to provide gbm without mesa. If you want to keep mesa (which does provide gbm) you can remove libgbm as dependency and also deinstall libgbm.

Re: accelerated desktop with wayland / weston

No, but at the time I made the PKGBUILD I thought it would be a good idea to add dependency to libopenvg. The PKGBUILD still does compile cairo with both gles and openvg backend. But both is provided via the package "raspberrypi-firmware-tools" on the Pi. So currently "raspberrypi-firmware-tools" wo...

Re: accelerated desktop with wayland / weston

@dmp: You won't need full xorg for running weston/wayland. You'll need libxkbcommon and libxcursor. I personally don't use LFS at the moment and therefore might not be the correct person to help you with it. But still I would try to help, if you post the output of ./configure and make here.

Re: LibreOffice?

If LibreOffice (or OpenOffice) would be available, you would likely get very frustrated and remove it right away, because it would be too slow.

I would give abiword a try. Don't expect abiword to be feature rich, but it will be fast.

Re: Clone Arch Linux Pi from one SD to antother SD

Hi, KnightMB! If you want to set up a lot of Pis with the same system (like 20 Pis for a school class or something) the best way would be to start with the smallest SD-Card. Then you could clone this card via dd and grow the filesystems on the bigger cards. Ideally you would have 20 identically card...

Re: how do I complete boot before login

Hi, JimDod! You could achieve this with using targets. Have a look at https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Systemd . The idea would be the following: Currently getty (login) is part of the multi-user target. This shows you what multi-user "wants": ls /usr/lib/systemd/system/multi-user.target.wants/ ...

Bug in firmware when handling incorrect EDID Data

Hi, at all! I guess I found a firmware bug. My Pi is connected to a 1080p DVI Monitor, which does not provided any EDID data at all. Without any configuration in my config.txt it defaults to 720p output. If I set the correct mode (hdmi_group 2, hdmi_mode 82) without hdmi_ignore_edid I still get 720p...
