Re: Ubuntu 18.04 ARM64 RPI 3 official image published

Sadly the ubuntu dev's have ignored everything that has been written in the linked (and other) bug reports. If people are after an arm64 *ubuntu desktop that works and has been fully tested then the xubuntu installer I made is still (the link will die soon I think) available https://ubuntu-mate.comm...

Re: Ubuntu 18.04 ARM64 RPI 3 official image published

Flash-kernel doesn't copy the overlays folder which means there is a possibility that it may go out of sync with the dtb file in use. That's all. To use kms/fkms you need to add an entry to config.txt. The caveat to this is that raspi3-firmware (bizarrely also included on the image) will overwrite y...

Re: HOWTO: Install debian armhf on Pi 2/3

The Debian installer scans drives looking for an iso file. A way around the 4gb file size would be to place it on another usb drive that is formatted in something other than fat. Just to clear up any possible confusion (https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=63&t=229065 ), the drive wit...

Re: Wobbly windows in stretch

Yeah I really like kwin. I'm glad you've found something that works for you. I think the crashes are due to problems with vc4, rather than a compiz problem (0.9 is stable enough for my needs). kwin can be used outside KDE. I think it would be a good choice with LXQT. I still can't believe compiz/kwi...

Re: HOWTO: Install debian armhf on Pi 2/3

Copying the ISO file itself and nothing else isn't good enough. The above script extracts the kernel/initrd/dtb files from the iso. With these and the pi's bootloader files you can boot the iso file without extracting everything. A bit like how you can boot a 'live' desktop iso using grub2's loopba...

Re: Wobbly windows in stretch

Yes it's ubuntu on the pi. Lubuntu/Xubuntu/Mate all work well. Even Kubuntu works okay with vc4 (the annoying problem with kde is the extremely slow start up and the settings manager animation likes to crash under vc4).

Re: HOWTO: Install debian armhf on Pi 2/3

I'm not massively familiar with Debian CDs/dvds, but I would expect you only need the dvd. Instead of copying the iso file you can extract it's contents to the usb drive. For example if the usb drive is mounted at /mnt: sudo cp -rT /tmp/installer-iso /mnt Any references to "hd-media" in the script w...

I'm very pleased somebody has found this useful! At the moment compiz 0.9* seems to work better than 0.8*. When I did my original testing compiling 0.9 to use opengl instead of gles worked better, but I haven't tried that for a while, and it's a bit of pain to make it do that. Reducing resolution im...

Re: Ubuntu Server 18.04 arm64 on RPi3B+

There are arm64 and armhf raspi2 kernels.

What are the error messages you get when booting? For an installation on a USB drive it would be something like:

Code: Select all

ls
set root=(hd1,msdos2)
ls /
linux /boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/sda2
initrd /boot/initrd.img

Re: Ubuntu no GPIO device

Have a look at the raspberrypi-sys-mods package?

If something doesn't work, a good place to look is the Ubuntu flavour maker source code. That often shows the extra packages that are needed.

You could install the raspi2 kernel and flash-kernel packages so you don't need uboot/grub2. To be honest I'm amazed you had it working at all because that is not my experience. There is something in Ubuntu's default grub.cfg that causes grub2 to crash for me. I haven't investigated it because I swi...

Re: Ubuntu Server 18.04 arm64 on RPi3B+

Is there a particular reason why you need a 64bit operating system? Ubuntu provides an official 32bit version that is installed just like raspbian. If you really must have a 64 bit operating system, then it is an easier to install xubuntu - https://ubuntu-mate.community/t/aarch64-on-raspberry-pi-2-r...
