Re: NFS over wifi

I resolved this issue although I don't understand it. I ended up executing the mount command and just letting it run over night. In the morning the mount had completed and not when I mount the NFS share it completes immediately. It works exactly as expected. So strange, but I'm happy that it now wor...

Re: NFS over wifi

Thanks I'll try the -o option.

I get no errors. It just hangs for ever. The command never completes. I can live without fstab working so right now I'm focusing on getting this to work by manually using the mount command.

NFS over wifi

I have an issue where mounting an NFS share over wifi fails. If I boot using ethernet the NFS mount works everytime. This happens mounting thru fstab and manually mounting from a terminal.

Is there something I need to do to configure the NFS client to bind over wifi??

Re: [GUIDE] Raspbian Lite with PIXEL/LXDE/XFCE/MATE/Openbox

This is an awesome post and just what I needed. One followup question. Is it possible to skip the desktop install part and just have X-Windows + GTK and run a single app, using the Pi as a kiosk running one, single GUI app? Any tips on making that scenario work?

Re: ttyAMA0 Missing

Thanks, I finally found another post that addressed this.

This issue is that when you disable the serial port for boot using raspi-config, the serial port is also disabled for ANY use.

To fix this you MUST set "enable_uart=1" in /boot/config.txt

This is really a bug in raspi-config.

ttyAMA0 Missing

I had to reinstall my Pi because the SD card went bad so I used the lasted version: jessie from 5/27. I need to use the serial port for my code so I used raspi-config to disable boot from using the port, just like I've always done. Problem is that the /dev/ttyAMA0 is missing. I also disabled the ser...

Re: Building 3.18 Kernel

More than likely yes. So where can I get the sources that match the current Wheezy image?

Re: Building 3.18 Kernel

Yea, I'm aware of the config differences. I've built using "bcm2709_defconfig" to generate the .config file and I've tried building using a .config file that I created using "zcat /proc/config.gz > .config" to capture the RPI2 configuration. Neither way works properly.

Re: Building 3.18 Kernel

Thanks for the reply. What you're saying makes sense, but there must be a way to get the same sources that the Wheezy image was built from. I got the sources from "git clone --depth=1 https://github.com/raspberrypi/linux". The default branch is 3.18.y. The version from the RPI2 via uname is "3.18.7-...

Re: Building 3.18 Kernel

I'm not concerned with how fact the compile process is right now, just with getting it working. So unless the linaro gcc will somehow do that I don't think I need to change compilers.

Re: Building 3.18 Kernel

I am copying just the compiled kernel module. I do not want or need to replace the entire kernel.

Re: Building 3.18 Kernel

Also, just to verify the problem I replaced the snd.ko kernel module that I built and got the same result. No kernel modules that I build are loadable and all get the "disagrees about version of symbol module_layout" error message.

Re: Building 3.18 Kernel

The i2c_bcm2708 is not an overlay but a loaded kernel module. lsmod shows the module as loaded in normal operation. I used the option in raspi-config to enable I2C and am aware of that. The linux/drivers/i2c/busses directory does in fact build a i2c-bcm2708.ko file and on a RPI2 system there is /lib...

Building 3.18 Kernel

I am trying to build the kernel for a PI2 that is running 3.18.7-v7+ kernel. My goal is to rebuild the i2c-bcm2708.ko kernel module. I've successfully built everything but the module will not load. I get the message "disagrees about version of symbol module_layout". The Module.symvers seems right an...
