RealtimePi - unofficial builds of the Realtime kernel branch

Hey all, Developer of RealtimePi here. Just wanted to updated you that I've been maintaining for a while nightly builds of a realtime kernel for the Raspberry Pi. Sources that build the images here: https://github.com/guysoft/RealtimePi/ Nightly here: http://unofficialpi.org/Distros/RealtimePi/night...

Re: New RT (Real Time) kernel branch

Hey, creator of RealtimePi here (https://github.com/guysoft/RealtimePi). I've been maintaining a distro with ships with a realtime kernel for the past 6 months. RealtimePi is based on CustomPiOS so its easy to build other distros on top of it (FOSS IOT FTW). Also, we are not getting it to be part of...

This is how ready we can get when it comes to new releases. We know that when they ship there will be bugs.

Re: Chromium tab crashes if video

It seems that chromium 60/Stretch does not do this anymore. I am not 100% I am running the same tests, but you guys are welcome to test and report too.

Ok, so just to sorta give you the idea how much test time we are missing here. Apparently, Rpi foundation was running Stretch internally two days before the issue was ever opened, for a month. Even though we have nightly builds, it does not matter because the changes were pushed only yesterday, when...

As soon as the RPF folks launch a 2017-xx-xx-raspbian-stretch.zip on the downloads page I'm going to rebuild every machine from a fresh download (as that will remove some of the crud and cruft they've collected over the years). There is no reason I can think of why pi-gen should not have the option...

1. Where are they located?
2. Can Stretch be built from pi-gen nightly? We could add it to the unofficial nightly builds and make it available to all.

Ok then. This thread caused me to make unofficial Raspbian lite nightly builds. I hope this could help the community test and try things out before. It also means we can report stuff via our nightly builds before it comes out. Unofficial nightlights are now available at : http://unofficialpi.org/Dis...

rpi-update is the solution jamesh suggested, and I take his opinion seriously. The threads linked are real issues.
I am trying to make it so OctoPi 0.15 will run on your printer tomorrow.

Re: On recent 2017-07-05 and 2017-06-21 - Release candidates

So the github/rpi-update contains, in effect, a rolling release candidate. (Waits to be corrected by people who know more...!) That's not a rolling build, thats an update system. It does not cover release candidates, or testing that clean images work. You can see how this is confusing users, for ex...

None of the images are "removed", just links to the latest are replaced. https://downloads.raspberrypi.org/raspbian/images/ We are well aware of that. We are also tracking with close all changes to pi-gen github . What we want to do is catch issues like metadata_csum BEFORE the images are...

hey guys, Developer of OctoPi here. Saw the new image release. we specially changed our build system to support metadata_csum, and then a week after you remove it - I could have told you about it, and that it requires the latest fsck. If there a way we can cooperate so this stuff does not happen? Is...

Re: Is this a good usb hub?

Hey all,
Does anyone have experience with this one?
Person in the comments says it worked for him, but had backfeed.
Could I connect it just to the data pins and ground, and avoid the backfeed?
