Re: Debian64Pi - image builder and images of 64-bit Debian for the Pi 3 and 4

I have been experimenting with this script and have managed to get it to run Ubuntu, including GNOME. Learn more here: viewtopic.php?f=131&t=268815&p=1631334#p1631334

Hi,
I installed this Debian on my rpi3 but I can't figure how to mount a usb key.
Can I log in root? The debian user don't have the permission
Sure. To get access, just run from the debian user:

Code: Select all

sudo passwd root
Then choose a password and login ;)

Ubuntu64Pi - semi-automated image builder for Ubuntu 19.10 for 64-bit Pi's

A few months ago I released a semi-automated generator for Debian images that would utilise the Pi 3 and 4's power to the max by using ARM64/ARMv8 instead of ARM32/ARMv7. A few days ago I was messing around with the script, and then thought "What if I get Ubuntu running instead?" So I modified the s...

Re: Debian64Pi - image builder and images of 64-bit Debian for the Pi 3 and 4

@chastech Your script and minimal install image works good. The Sakaka kernel needs a script for the installed OS. The Raspbian people should use the arm64 package you created with new raspbian features. It just works. I originally used PINN but I prefer freedom setting up the image on sdcard and d...

Re: Introducing Pi386

Hi, I am totally new to the pi and linux the environment, so I have no experience of what I am trying to do. What I want to do is run a TS3 server 24/7 on a Pi4 4G, later I would like to add a cloud/data/media server that I can access from my laptop & mobile. For now though setting up a TS3 server ...

Development on the GNOME image has been cancelled. I will be releasing MATE and XFCE images at some point though.

Re: Debian64Pi - image builder and images of 64-bit Debian for the Pi 3 and 4

I've fixed the issue in the Pi 4 image. There should be a new image in the releases section of the page now which has the kernel issue fixed.

Re: Debian64Pi - image builder and images of 64-bit Debian for the Pi 3 and 4

Hi @chastech I just tried converting your 2 images for installation with PINN. The pi3 version worked fine, but the pi4 version didn't. So I flashed your native pi4 image directly and that didn't boot either. I noticed the kernel was called kernel8-p4.img. Renaming it to kernel8.img allowed it to b...

Re: Debian64Pi - image builder and images of 64-bit Debian for the Pi 3 and 4

Got GNOME up and running though with the FKMS driver on 4GB Pi 4! However, it's horribly slow, I'm talking slow, as in stuttering everywhere, taking ten minutes to launch app slow. I doubt I'll be releasing an image for it other than in an experimental stage. Icons for programs take forever to rende...

Re: Debian64Pi - image builder and images of 64-bit Debian for the Pi 3 and 4

I'm going to be building a GNOME image exclusively for the Pi 4 to test, see how well it runs with the FKMS driver and 4GB RAM. There won't be a Pi 3 image though and I don't even know if it'll run on the Pi 4 to be honest! And if it does don't expect it to play nice with 1GB and 2GB RAM variants as...

Re: Debian64Pi - image builder and images of 64-bit Debian for the Pi 3 and 4

Cool, another 64bit OS for Pi4. I am expecting a flood of them this year. I use Sakaki's Gentoo64 as my main development OS and Pi4's as my home desktop PC's now. Will these scripts run on Gentoo64 and make the Debian64 image? It should do, just change qemu-debootstrap to just debootstrap in stage1...

Nice work. We're getting closer to a full official Raspbian 64-bit build on Pi :D

I'm guessing the fact you have a separate image for Pi 3 versus Pi 4 is down to some sort of device tree issue?
A kernel incompatibility actually.

I am proud to announce my new three stages, semi-automated Debian ARM64 image generator for the Pi 3 and 4, Debian64Pi. It is three scripts, sure there is some user interaction, and you do have to create and mount the image manually beforehand, but this project is still in early development and hope...
