Re: SOLVED: Modules fail to load after pacman -Syu

Hi Pepedog, I found the problem following your help, thanks. The kernel in /boot was in fact the 3.12.24-1 I had upgraded to, but the running kernel was 3.12.23-1. The problem was that /boot was mounting the wrong partition! I'm not sure how this happened, I must have edited fstab at some point, but...

Re: Modules fail to load after pacman -Syu

Hi Pepedog,
you were absolutely right, I had installed kernel.24 but was running kernel.23, so I reinstalled the version 24, and ran your sync && sync && sync && reboot, but upon reboot I was back to version 23!

I'm lost! But at least I know the culprit.

Best regards
Jonathan

Re: Modules fail to load after pacman -Syu

Hi Pepedog, thanks, I'll check that. I did do one "sync" before rebooting this time, thinking it would be enough, as I have had several goes at this update and restored each time it failed using a tarball of the entire root partition. However, you are right that on previous occasions when I restored...

SOLVED: Modules fail to load after pacman -Syu

Hi All, I had a nice working system as installed from NOOBS 1.3.8 and then I did a system update with pacman -Syu It all worked without error, but now when I reboot the systemd-modules-load service fails as it can't find the 2 chipset modules (without which I get no mouse or keyboard in X) Dec 31 17...

Re: Scratch with Tim Rowledge at ROUGOL

Edit: Scratch that (no pun intended). I was trying to run Scratch *as well as* Squeak and running out of memory, It's running perfectly now! Thanks! HI Tim, I got Squeak up and running, but I'm not sure how to get it to execute the Scratch image. There doesn't seem to be a Squeak filetype. I changed...

Outstanding (and very entertertaining!) thanks!
I'll give it a whirl. No more loooong waits for Raspian to boot!

Re: Scratch with Tim Rowledge at ROUGOL

Hi Tim,
ooh splendid! Does the tarball contain the Squeak VM as well? I assumed it would be seperate, but I couldn't even find Squeak on either RISCOS Store or !Packman.

Best regards

Re: RISCOS 5.21 not booting when installed from NOOBS 1.3.8

Ahh, my mistake. I did check that for some reason. Something must have made me look at that... can't remember though.

Re: RISCOS 5.21 not booting when installed from NOOBS 1.3.8

Hi mimi, not broken, but perhaps not quite right. It passes the utility that is supposed to check for fake SD cards, so nothing is actually broken, but even Linux distros on this card seem to freeze for several seconds at some points when writing. The test didn't freeze, but linux does. Just out of ...

Re: Scratch with Tim Rowledge at ROUGOL

Hi Tim,
is there any way of getting hold of the beta version of Scratch you are working on? All the old links lying around point to zipfiles that are long since gone.

Trying to avoid being forced to boot Raspian when my son want's to do some Scratch programming!

Best regards

Re: RISCOS hangs under NOOBS

Just a quick follow-up, I found that when I used a proper Sandisk 8G card I could tinker with partition sizes to my heart's content and NOOBS would still happily load and run RISCOS. But my generic 8GB card won't play ball at all under NOOBS. Oddly the card in question passes the H2testw fitness tes...

Re: RISCOS hangs under NOOBS

Hi,
admittedly this is the first time I've tried this particular card, though the other OSs work fine.
In fact it turned out that if I left it long enough eventually it would come up with "bad free space map" by itself.

I'll try another card and see if that works.

Best regards

RISCOS 5.21 not booting when installed from NOOBS 1.3.8

Hi All, I've been happily running older (5.19) versions of RISCOS from RAW images and decided to give the latest NOOBS (1.3.8) a go. This obviously has the new 5.21 version of RISCOS. All the other OSs I tried (Raspbian, Arch, OpenELEC) boot just fine, but RISCOS gets stuck with the OK/disc access l...

Re: QEMU patches for RPi emulation - Initial release

Hi Torlus, ShiftPlusOne, Looks like I've found the compile issue. There were a couple of fixes for the Win32 build that went in just after torlus' last merge, on March 10th. Nothing more than a few ifdef __WIN32's Now builds just fine under MinGW, but I still get the black screen, and Qemu shows as ...

Re: QEMU patches for RPi emulation - Initial release

Hi Torlus, some progress... I can successfully compile your branch on Ubuntu with no problems. The problems seem related to building under MinGW, which is where I really want to be able to run. However, although I can run Wheezey under your branch, when I try to boot RISCOS I get a large black scree...

Hi Torlus, ShiftPlusOne, I have exactly the same problem as ShiftPlusOne during link when compiling under MinGW with io_control_width etc I seem to be able to compile a freshly downloaded copy of vanilla Qemu 1.4.1 Was this issue resolved? If not, is there anywhere I could get a windows build of Tor...
