Re: Who to contact for broken Raspbian package?

The first part of the problem is that when you install dkms it will try to find a package which provides the linux kernel headers. Instead of figuring out that it's raspberrypi-kernel-headers, it will pull in the version for debian's kernel.

Edit: Unless you install raspberrypi-kernel-headers first

Re: How to change top Panel (lxpanel to xfc4-panel)?

You'd have to install dhcpcd-gtk from apt. As far as everything else goes, I think you'll find limited support. A lot of work went into putting together Raspberry Pi desktop into its current form. If you start replacing components and trying to keep all the functionality, you'll run into problems. N...

Re: Who to contact for broken Raspbian package?

That's tricky, since the package itself probably belongs to Debian and probably builds fine against their kernel, which doesn't run on the pi. And we don't have the resources to maintain every dkms package on our end either.

Would you happen to know why it's not building exactly?

Re: 3B+ headless mode with WiFi

Could you please provide the output of 'sudo journalct' on first boot of a clean install with just the wpa_supplicant.conf and ssh files added? It doesn't sounds like you've done anything wrong, so it 'should' work. The reason why it doesn't should be in that log somewhere.

Re: Where do bug reports go?

Typically bug reports go on github to the appropriate packages.

In this case, that would be:
https://github.com/RPi-Distro/raspberry ... ods/issues

As far as default screen blanking behaviour goes, it's not something we've set up, so it should probably go upstream to Debian.

Re: Software packaging, bug reporting?

That rpi-distro/repo issue tracker is for issues with raspberrypi.org packages. I don't think we've touched virt-viewer, so that raspbian bug tracker is the correct location. It may take a while for plugwash to find time to look at it though.

Re: How to change top Panel (lxpanel to xfc4-panel)?

That applet is an lxpanel plugin which can't be used elsewhere. I believe it's based on dhcpcd-gtk, which may work with xfce4-panel.

That md5sum matches what I have.

No idea, I was testing with a random Pi 2 Model B Rev 1.2 on my desk. You shouldn't need to do anything with the OTP when using a separate bootcode.bin.
