The most relevant log file is /var/log/apt/term.log.

Thanks. That is exactly what a successful upgrade should look like, and matches my local successful upgrades. Hmm.

mmm, so what now? should I wait your next image build to check this update?
Want me to try something else this evening?

I'll have a think if there's anything else I can do other than forcing a sync during the upgrade and let you know. Thanks for testing.

I've no HDMI/DVI monitor, so I've connected the Raspi to my TV using the yellow (RCA?) connector. That works sort-of; I do get an image, but it is black-and-white and it is a bit shaky at underlines.

I tried 'overscan' from raspi-config, expecting overscan has to do with TV-screen, but no result. Any tips?

Thanks.

The problem is likely that composite defaults to NTSC, which your display does not support. See http://elinux.org/R-Pi_Troubleshooting# ... r_no_image and you should just be able to edit /boot/config.txt which actually has lines with comments to indicate what you might want to change. This is something raspi-config or a tool like it should eventually help you with.

@asb I did do a sync and then an init 6 which should do another sync :-)
I have been in unix sa since... well I long time :-).

Suggestion for you installation script to reduce the "window" when you can corrupt the boot
install into /boot/install then sync then move (not copy) the files to correct names in /boot
then run sync again. I think this is actually essential as most users (children?) will just
power it on and off maybe at that point. I think when we develop the OS and packages
for PI we need to think very defensible.

I have just bought a card-reader so I can cut/read my own cards now. Hence I will have a look
at the broken image this evening and report back to you, and post the log file etc, however I do not remember seeing any issues and I has watching for errors, does not mean I did not miss them tho :-)

Remember I tried to run a config that gave an error earlier, so if you really do not see the issue
if you take your image do TWO (yes TWO) updates then upgrade and init 6 and don't see the problem I too will be confused, but maybe an issue with the earlier error in config?

Anyway need to do work so will post later when I am home.

OK, I tried a few times, but after a "sudo sync" and "sudo shutdown -r now", the /boot/config.txt is missing the stuff from the point where I edited it. I used both "sudo vi /boot/config.txt" and "sudo nano config.txt". After editing (but before rebooting), the config.txt was correctly changed:

Code: Select all

pi@raspberrypi /boot $ grep sdtv config.txt
sdtv_mode=2
# sdtv edited by Sander
pi@raspberrypi /boot $ 
pi@raspberrypi /boot $ diff config.txt config.txt.org 
36,37c36
< sdtv_mode=2
< # sdtv edited by Sander
---
> #sdtv_mode=2
pi@raspberrypi /boot $ 
pi@raspberrypi /boot $ sudo sync
However, after the reboot, the config.txt is larger (I added also some comment), but the added stuff is gone.

Code: Select all

pi@raspberrypi /boot $ ls -al config.txt*
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 1203 Jun 15 13:38 config.txt
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 1180 Jun 15 13:28 config.txt.org
pi@raspberrypi /boot $ 
I'm ssh-in into the raspi from my Ubuntu, editing is done locally, so that can't be the problem.

When I open config.txt again with "sudo nano config.txt", the last line reads:

Code: Select all

# uncomment for ^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@
Weird.

I scp-ed config.txt to my Ubuntu, edited it there, scp-ed it back to /boot, made a few copies, did a sync, did a "sudo reboot", and ... /boot/config.txt again is garbled. And config.txt.sdtv does not match. The ~/config.txt (a copy of /boot/config.txt) is still correct.

Code: Select all

pi@raspberrypi ~ $ cd /boot/
pi@raspberrypi /boot $ ls -al conf*
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 1202 Jun 15 13:48 config.txt
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 1180 Jun 15 13:28 config.txt.org
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 1202 Jun 15 13:49 config.txt.sdtv
pi@raspberrypi /boot $ grep sdtv confi*
Binary file config.txt matches
config.txt.org:#sdtv_mode=2
pi@raspberrypi /boot $ 
pi@raspberrypi /boot $ grep sdtv ~/config.txt 
sdtv_mode=2
# sdtv done by Sander
pi@raspberrypi /boot $ 
So ... is /boot/config.txt hold / overwritten by some other process?

I will now get the flash card out of the Raspi, mount it in my Ubuntu, and edit it there ...

OK, that was the solution:

Get the micro flash card out of the Raspi, put into your Ubuntu, let it mount the two partitions, find config.txt, edit it, save it, gracely umount, put the micro flash card back into the Raspi and boot it.

Now the /boot/config.txt survived the boot and contained the content I put into it, and ... we have color!

Maybe this question is not purely related to this debian image, so ignore/remove if it is not relevant here:

I'm trying to a get a Wifi USB dongle working. When I put it in the Raspi, lsusb does show it and some kernel modules are loaded. However, there appears no wlan0 in ifconfig, and lshw does not show it.

The same dongle under Ubuntu 12.04 works out of the box.

I'm an Ubuntu GUI user, and not yet a Debian CLI user ... ;)

Any tips?

On Ubuntu, "sudo iwlist wlan1 scan" does show the Wifi networks around me.

Should I manually extra / other drivers on the Raspi?

sander: sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install firmware-realtek might be worth a try.

I tried, and it did not make a difference. Never mind: it's probably not for this thread.

@asb

OK the Raspberry PI Wheezy card not booting is reproducible:
installed image onto 4GB Transcend class 6 card
insert into RPI, with wired network, HDMI, zippy Keyboard
boot it
select expand root
select set keyboard layout (I see an error message in bottom left hand corner of screen briefly)
select finish
login
sudo init 6

<reboots ok and resizes>
login
sudo su
apt-get update
<downloads about 10Meg>
apt-get update
<downloads about 27K>
apt-get upgrade
ls -l /boot
md5sum /boot
init 6

<dead system blank screen>
to fix power off, disconnect hdmi for 3sec
remove card, insert a new image
power on
boots
<insert hdmi>

With regards to Pis not booting after running apt-get update: I had this problem with my Pi, but after checking the boot partition I found that start.elf was 0kb. Replacing this with one of the other .elf files resulted in the Pi booting normally. I guess it must have gotten corrupted at some point in the installation procedure.

This was after running "sync" and "init 6" once the installation had completed.

Using the old Debian image I was a little disappointed with the speed it ran on my pi. This new version is a lot quicker. I'm very impressed.

Might try over clocking it.

I have managed to get it to mount on my windows platform and this is the contents
of what would be /boot
J:\>dir
Volume in drive J has no label.
Volume Serial Number is 18DA-FFB9

Directory of J:\

15/06/2012 20:55 2,047,848 arm128_start.elf
15/06/2012 20:55 2,047,848 arm192_start.elf
10/06/2012 21:30 142 cmdline.txt
15/06/2012 23:02 1,228 config.txt
15/06/2012 20:55 2,047,848 arm224_start.elf
15/06/2012 20:55 16,528 bootcode.bin
15/06/2012 20:55 6,236,636 kernel.img
15/06/2012 20:55 4,195,844 kernel_cutdown.img
15/06/2012 20:55 314,691 loader.bin
9 File(s) 16,908,613 bytes
0 Dir(s) 24,537,088 bytes free

So looks like the start .elf file is not being handled correctly?

I will see if putting arm192_start.elf as start.elf works ......

IT DID!!

OK so how do we take this forward to see why its not copying the correct image
to start.elf during the update.....

is there a way to put the script in "debug mode" at squirt the sdtout/err into a file?

I have a remark / recommendation: Although the image fits on a 2GB flash card, I would say a 4GB card is minimum and certainly recommended. Reason: It's the third time in 48 hours my 2GB fills up (after installing just a few small package like usbutils etc), and I have recreate the image.
So, in the sticky: "Requirement: 4GB flash card".

With a Kingston "Kingston SDC4/4GBSP 4GB, SD Micro HC" starting at € 2.11, that should not be a problem for most people


Furthermore: How can I make a backup of an image? Just put it into a Linux system and then

Code: Select all

sudo dd bs=1M if=/dev/sdb of=~/my-image-blabla.img
Is that it?

Thanks.

Hello,
Many thanks to Alex Bradbury for this image on Debian Wheezy with the very convenient raspi-config.
I use it with success on a Samsung 32GB SDHC Class 10, which was not working with the official Debian Squeeze.

Like some others, I have experienced the keyboard layout error from raspi-config. Furthermore, I would suggest placing the menu entry "configure keyboard" higher than "change password", and if possible with a note if this require rebooting or not.

Furthermore, I cannot get ffmpeg to work, while it worked fine with the official image debian6-19-04-2012. In both case, I install ffmpeg with:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install ffmpeg
I get an error, which is not that informative... Furthermore, I cannot find any log with more details:

Code: Select all

pi@raspberrypi ~ $ ffmpeg
Illegal instruction
Did some of you succeed in running ffmpeg on this image?

Thanks

Here is a strace of ffmpeg ending with "Illegal instruction":

P.S.: Attachments do not allow .txt or .log? What extension to use for that then?

Thanks!

Are the sources available somewhere? And the scripts used to create the image?

Thanks again!

It seems workable on a 2GB card for me (that's what I use). Though sure, you'll run out of space if you install lots more. Installing and using localepurge will actually free up a couple of hundred meg at least.
