Re: How to get an application to start on boot in Pidora?

You could use cron that calls a very simple script that just sleeps for say 20 seconds then launches the app...

crontab -e

@reboot /home/linuxpiuser/start_app.sh

start_app.sh

#!/bin/bash

sleep 20
/usr/sbin/app
exit 0

I'm not 100% about this but it should work....

Re: WPA2 Network Connection

I concur with the double wpa_supplicant running because NetworkManager keeps starting it, even if you pkill wpa. I too have had the exact same problem you have detailed here, and also my solution was to disable NetworkManager and enable the network service ( legacy ) To get this to auto on boot I wr...

Re: Later Kernels

It looks like on Pidora the vc directories

bin
include
lib
sbin
src

are in /usr mixed in with other "system" files, so a tar merge might be required.......

Will try this later.....

Re: Later Kernels

Hi, I think some of my issues were caused by the fact that the eLinux guide http://elinux.org/Raspberry_Pi_Kernel_Compilation May have been writted for Raspbian in that when it suggests updating the firmware, It states to clone it from git hub, change some files in /boot ( checked these are the same...

Re: Later Kernels

Thanks Dougie, OK, I got 3.18 to boot all the way... Process:- I installed Raspbian latest version and zcat /proc/config.gz > latest_raspbian_config.

Re: Later Kernels

So Dougie, don't be mad, I am trying to learn here.... yeah, I understand now that you are saying don't expect the uttermost latest kernels to work, "out of the box". That is understood. ( albeit you had to state it twice.......sorry :-) ) As an explanation:- 1> I don't know how to tell what is the ...

Re: Later Kernels

Thanks Dougie,

any ideas why the 3.18 doesn't work with the Model B ?
To me it seems related to the USB drivers.

As a test of the process I am using to produce a kernel I have downloaded the
current rpi-3.12.y and am going to try with that....

Kind regards.

Re: Later Kernels

Thanks, interesting..... I don't have enough knowledge to know what all the different CONFIG options do in the kernel build .config What I am going to try for my Model B is the following...... 1> Install latest version of Raspian. 2> get the .config from zcat /proc/config.gz from a running Rasbian w...

Re: Later Kernels

On looking at the USB drivers between rpi-3.6.y and rpi-3-18.y, there is some source code change:- \rpi-3.18.y\drivers\usb\host\dwc_otg 1.27 MB (1,335,802 bytes) 1.35 MB (1,417,216 bytes) 38 Files, 2 Folders \rpi-3.6.y\drivers\usb\host\dwc_otg 1.20 MB (1,262,016 bytes) 1.27 MB (1,339,392 bytes) 37 F...

Re: Later Kernels

Thanks, I am using the following as a guide to cross-compiling the kernel for the RasPi:- http://elinux.org/Raspberry_Pi_Kernel_Compilation If I follow the above with the 3.6 Kernel from github, it works fine. No boot problems. If I just write the Pidora latest image to the SD card, it works fine. N...

Later Kernels

I have a Model B Running Pidora, The Pidora-2014-R3.zip works when written to the SD card, no issues. If I try to use any Kernels compiled from github later that 3.6 the pi wont complete booting. It stalls when enumerating USB devices. [ 2.362134] usb 1-1: new high-speed USB device number 2 using dw...
