Re: nuScratch is now default scratch

I've now updated the scratch package with a new release from Tim and a fixed scratch launcher script.

To update or make sure you're running the latest version, just do the following:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install nuscratch

Yes, you need to explicitly apt-get install nuscratch. It was left off the blog post for some reason.

Hi gkreidl - have you posted full bug reports for your issues with instructions on how to reproduce? It would be really helpful so they can be passed on to the correct people to get those sorted.

Re: Webkit upgrade 1.8.1-3.4 > 2.4.1-1 breaks things

If you read his apt-cache policy output that version of webkit came from the main foundation repository, not from the collabora "web" repository. My guess would be the foundation have copied the "web" stuff to their main repository. Yes. and after running dist-upgrade the whole system is a terrible...

Apologies, I've fixed the URL in my post. I'm not seeing much/any use of jackd1. apt-cache rdepends libjack0 doesn't show anything interesting and neither does apt-cache rdepends jackd1. If someone finds something important broken, do let me know though.

No more crashes! I tried to install sonic-pi to test it, but could not, because the dependencies could not be fulfilled.

Re: Replacement memcpy

In the Foundation Raspbian image, we use https://github.com/bavison/arm-mem/ which confusingly is still called libcofi_rpi.so as the switch was easier that way. I'm not sure why it's commented out in /etc/ld.so.preload for you - the standard image that you'll get off the downloads page has it there.

The problem here is that the cwiid library (the underlying C implementation) has a whole bunch of calls to a function that prints error messages.

I think its because of the xorg.conf you are using - delete that and use the 99- one instead. Although, did you rpi-update? You will need the latest firmware. People with an older image will need to apt-get install xserver-xorg-video-fbturbo as well (everyone do this, now! It's a big improvement). ...

Hi, the 'boot to scratch' installation is separate from your standalone Raspbian installation. You can get a normal terminal if you do ctrl+alt+f2. Then log in with pi/raspberry, sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade. Hope that helps.
