Re: Enable remote login via USB Serial on first boot and after updates.

Paul, thank you. It turns out I will not need a serial connection to pi zero, Was able to successfully ssh in using a new ethernet adapter and improved power supplies for both my old Model B's ethernet adapter and the hub on pi zero. Not sure which factor was more important, would take more testing.

Re: Enable remote login via USB Serial on first boot and after updates.

Paul, how fortuitious! I am running your modified raspbian-lite image (for flashing C.H.I.P) on a pi zero! I cannot for the life of me get ssh working, will serial login work without any extra equipment? I still prefer ssh, but serial is better than nothing. Tried PM'ing you but board will not let me.

I started this topic in the ArchLinuxArm forum because of problems with my Model B, you are running a different model of Pi as well as a different OS, so the error messages are not the same, and fix may be different.

Re: ARCH ARM Chromium Pepper Flash

You can see what the system calls are by starting from a terminal with strace. -o says where to put the output, -s gives length of output strings

strace -s 60 -o OUTPUTFILENAME YOURCOMMAND &

About those files you can not delete. A couple of things to do, to examine where they came from and what they are.

To remove the module, you need to do it with pacman, not by hand. Read that part of the man page about pacman. pacman -R PACKAGENAME PACKAGENAME is not the whole name of the file you installed with pacman -U, it will be all the words/characters in the filename that appear before the version number (...

If you are suggesting that a package is a dependency that is not listed for another packages, that needs to be reported upstream at the source. Check your pacman log at /var/log/pacman.log to see if it was an optional dependency? If not, then you could try to get them to correct that omission at the...

If you want to make and install for Arch, you need to use Arch commands. Pepedog gave you a list of what to do, not exact commands. First, you download the tarball from the URL he gave you. When he said "makepkg, pacman -U packagename" that meant that after you did a "cd" to the directory where you ...

Your best bet is to turn on logging if you have not done that, if the recompiling does not work. And sta...

It looks like you probably need to compile from source. I am searching but not finding where the source is, though!
