First of all can I say you are probably the most patient and persistent fruitbox user I've come across! So sorry you're having all this hassle; wish there was something obvious so we could get you going quickly.
I may just try and generate you a img file or even stick an SD card in the post for you as a last resort.
Your steps seem fine to me. The only things that are different to my steps are...
- I don't bother checking the SD image checksum
- I use a wired ethernet connection to the Pi and not WiFi
A long shot, but maybe worth changing the last two things if you can?
Thanks for the kind words it is appreciated I promise. The whole journey was to learn what a Rpi could do and how I can interact with it. Honestly I've learned a lot, not only just about the Rpi but also how to use my MAC, up to now I've only ever done video/photo/graphics editing and creation - now I don't think I am ever out of terminal, plus I'm learning the wonders of Github
The main reason I keep pushing with this is I love the programme, its so good - I love music and what a way to play it!
Regarding the offer of an img file I will gladly take you up on the offer, after giving your suggestions a go - I so want to work out why this is not working
I think it has nothing to do with Fruitbox!
Regarding the checksums suggestion from Gustav for me this was great to know as it assures me I know now the files I have are as intended so in my head its giving me the right baseline to start from.
I will try and get hold of a Windows machine from my mate and try the whole build with Windows OS to see if this makes a difference.
The one that really intrigues me is the third dot point - WIFI v Wired, this is where I actually feel the conflict is initiating from. Just from three observations, on start-up the hostname services can take up to 60+seconds to get past, before OOM killer is fired up the log files are littered with dhcpd service requests coupled with the whole of the AUS internet roll out (from service to HW (router quality)) is poor to be kind.
Yesterday I spent some time enabling and disabling networking to see if performance would differ there were some wins. The best thing is I have not done an entire build just off the wired network - I've always gone in and setup WIFI at some point. Will give this one a whirl tomorrow (family day has been called
) - will let you know how it goes. Fingers crossed!
Hope your day is a good one.
