Re: Help debug: ssh freezes, ethernet + usb go down [NOT SOL

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. I still have the problem, but very rarely, because I have learned what to do to min...

@start78: if this is a usb device, the path may change each time unless nothing else is attached over usb.

Re: Looking at ARCH

Hard to give you suggestions or tips without knowing what you want to do with ArchLinuxArm on your Pi. You can pretty much do whatever you want, just consider it another computer at your disposal. The difference is very little is pre-installed, so you will need to install the packages that are requi...

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 &

& at end of line gives you command line access during execution.

Re: headless bluetooth pairing

About those files you can not delete. A couple of things to do, to examine where they came from and what they are. Run "ls -l PATH-TO-FILES*" with an asterisk at the end, to see if they may just be symlinks and what the write permissions are. To find out what package owns each of those files, run "p...

Re: Help to install Edimax EW-7811UTC in arkos (Arch Linux A

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 (...

Re: emacs via ssh, missing fonts for menubar

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 ...

Re: Kernel oops when plugging in/out USB devices

I am not sure about the Kernel OOPS, but I do know that one of the USB ports on my 512MB model B is just not tight enough, and if I do any plugging, unplugging, everything whacks out with the other port. I elected not to return it as I needed the device badly, but for me the resolution was to leave ...

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! Pacman does list a few packagekit type packages though, I wonder if one of those might help you? Search with pacman -Ss packagekit, pk seems to be related to packagekit. There is a pac...

Sorry to be asking this but when I used raspbian it was never this hard to get things to work. Why does Arch have to be so much more complicated to do simple stuff?

But the output you posted indicates you are using debian-based files for some of what you are doing. I am suggesting that you use only arch-based or files from upstream which are not from debian.

Is there any reason for not just using the ArchLinux sources? They might build better. It looks to me like docker is available for armv7h, or are you trying to change the stock build?
