Anyone tested HDMI audio on the 3b+?
What are you running? generic or raspi2 kernel? If the latter, you probably need a line in your config.txt

Re: Unofficial Ubuntu 19.04 alpha image for the Raspberry Pi 3 now available

You can install the generic kernel and GRUB2 over the linux-raspi2 kernel in the Ubuntu Server image, although it takes a number of steps. You shouldn't need to install grub2 to use the generic kernel. I think u-boot as found on the raspi3 server images should be enough, although I don't think I've...

Re: Unofficial Ubuntu 19.04 alpha image for the Raspberry Pi 3 now available

No because the 18.04 kernel was frozen **before** the 3B+ was released. The clue is in no dtb file for the 3B+. This doesn't mean it is impossible, but there are obviously extra steps that I'm not going to go into now. Correcting myself ubuntu-18.04.2-server-arm64.iso contains the standard (GA) and...

That was a bit unfair of me, as I've since identified the root cause of not being able to find the apps: archive.ubuntu.com vs. ports.ubuntu.com (ring a bell?)
Not really. No official arm64 image/installer uses archive.ubuntu.com.

Re: Unofficial Ubuntu 19.04 alpha image for the Raspberry Pi 3 now available

So you really think I can the take the vanilla ubuntu-18.04-server-arm64.iso and end up with a working install that boots on the Pi3B+ with a generic kernel and working ethernet by simply following that guide? If you really believe that and are confident in your position then I will happily be the ...

Re: Unofficial Ubuntu 19.04 alpha image for the Raspberry Pi 3 now available

Meaning the only fix is to recompile the kernel? No. Meaning I think it is a problem with how code_exec is building images like I said. I gave you a link with a fix at the bottom of the page. Have you tried that? What evidence is there of this progress you speak of? The OneDrive folder that code_ex...

I think that is probably due to how code exec built the image https://github.com/CodeExecution/Ubuntu-ARM64-RPi/issues/5 Things have moved on anyway since January. WiFi firmware is now included by default and a problem with CMA/vc4 should now be fixed. You can install from the official daily generic...

Sorry sakaki, but I don't get it. This seems like a huge amount of work, but I honestly don't see the point of it. Who is going to produce the images for pinc? I can't see Fedora, openSUSE, Ubuntu etc producing official images especially to run under this. There doesn't seem to be a lot of individua...

The point is you've always been oversensitive to criticism, often lashing out at people who challenge something. Yet you are happy to criticise other peoples work, often in language which is far worse than is expressed against the pi/Raspbian. Chromium uses a lot of memory, but so does firefox and e...

Re: Tutorial: How to install Ubuntu 18.04 for ARM64 on Raspberry Pi 3B

There are other adjustments you should do to config.txt. Out of the box the image is running at a reduced clock speed. You need to also turn on sound. Boot time is slowed by cloud image packages. So remove them. To run a browser you definitely need swap or zram. Browsing is smoother under an opengl ...

Re: Easily run 64-bit Debian Stretch packages on a Raspbian system: new RPi3 demo image released (systemd-nspawn, LXDE)

If you are booting with a 64 bit kernel, does this break the python libraries? Or is it just the upstream 64 bit kernel that breaks them?

Thanks for the detailed reply. I hadn't realised multiarch had already been suggested. Must of missed that in the boring 64 bit threads (that I don't read anymore). Looking at jdonald's scripts the problem seems to come from different mesa versions. Rather than hacking the control files, I wonder if...

This is great (as always) Sakaki, but I think there is probably an easier way to do this. On Debian and Ubuntu you can use Multiarch. This certainly works with any recent Ubuntu on the pi.

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...
