Re: QEMU patches for RPi emulation - Initial release

I got kind of lost in git/configuration etc and things stoped working for me... Someone be so nice to post anew (or point to) clean valid instruction for building the rpi fork on Linux ? (I found my old ones not working any more) Like this: 1. git clone / checkout ... 2. ./configure 3. qemurpi comma...

Re: QEMU patches for RPi emulation - Initial release

Thanks for the response ! - No doubt: Great Work! Even the gpm works, so Im saved from keyboard issues... I would tip for both on the USB/Keyboard implementation in Qemu. Note: it is not the keyboard layout - which is fully OK for the rest - , it is simply a missing key ;-) When Im emulating "the ea...

Great peace of work Torlus !

Thank you for your effort. I have 2 issues: First, I can not manage the network to work - ifconfig only shows "lo" interface. I also manually insert smsc75xx module - to no help... "smsc95xx.ko" isnt present anyway in 2012-12-16-wheezy-raspbian.img, so I removed "smsc95xx.macaddr=..." from kernel pa...

Re: [Howto] Redirect X over SSH to other PC

In my case xinit didnt work either , so I did it my way: X :1 vt8 & and then DISPLAY=:1 ssh -p 2222 -Y [email protected] lxsession (port 2222 and localhost because Im running qemu-system-arm). Anyway, I find this great: Which simplifies to: xinit /usr/bin/ssh -Y [email protected] lxsession -- :1 (Provided that ssh...

Re: Q: Why "Raspbian:7.0/testing" in apt-get -s upgrade ?

I see, only I got sensitized on Gentoo, where packages fluctuate daily and 90 "unstable" at once means mostly "no mercy"...
Thanks for the info !

Re: Q: Why "Raspbian:7.0/testing" in apt-get -s upgrade ?

Great ! Thank you, guys !
- If I got it right: they simply opt for the test release (wheezy). Irritating to me was the repository directory structure where I wrongly assumed that wheezy would be the stable one...

Re: Q: Why "Raspbian:7.0/testing" in apt-get -s upgrade ?

Thank you for the proper response ! I see, but isn't this dedicated Raspbian repository ? There is nothing about squeezy under http://mirrordirector.raspbian.org/raspbian/dists/ , but separate "testing": Parent Directory - [DIR] testing/ 21-Jan-2013 17:11 - [DIR] wheezy-staging/ 21-Jan-2013 11:05 - ...

As coming from Gentoo I have lot of troubles to grasp the Debian Repository philosophy.

Yesssss ShiftPlusOne ! You are (damn) right - It IS qemu-system-arm . I got the recent stable version from http://git.qemu-project.org/qemu.git (stable-1.2) built it with ./configure --target-list="arm-softmmu arm-linux-user" --enable-sdl --enable-tcg-interpreter --prefix=/opt and then ./arm-softmmu...

You right - been there seen that .... Nevertheless it is nice when someone like you is taking - yours - time to respond.
Ill give your advise a try - but this will take time, too. Meanwhile I still hope someone else share his experience ...
