BerryBoot Ready Squashed Images

Mon Sep 16, 2013 4:33 am

Let's start a list Squashed images ready to add to Berryboot. Berryboot is a very handy and easy to use bootloader, but the selection of operating systems it comes with is lacking. I am sure many people would love to be able to easily install Xbian, Raspbmc, RetroPi, and many others.

So, Here is the image I have, I will add more as I find more or as other's post them.
PiMame 0.7.9 - https://mega.co.nz/#!UFNmRDZY!5Ybs57Hi3 ... KEKk5BkVu4 & http://www.filedropper.com/pimame-squashed_1 & https://www.dropbox.com/s/erh0h83ekmltk ... uashed.img

RetroPie - http://www.mrvestek.com/hosted/RetroPieBB.img & & https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B5tZOR5 ... sp=sharing (thanks to ChaosAffect & MrVestek)
RetroPie 2.3 - https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B78Vh0 ... sp=sharing & & https://mega.co.nz/#!J0lREYpa!59fIeD2EQ ... ioGeTJNIos (thanks to jer1691)

Rasbain Release 3.10 Date 01/07/2014
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BxjeHm ... sp=sharing (thanks to Holyman83)

Kali Linux Release 1.0.6a.

To install squashfs images, Berry boot suggests for you to "Put your SquashFS formatted image on a USB stick, go to the “Operating system installer”, hold down your mouse button over “Add OS” and select “Install from USB stick”"
However, when I tried to do that, Berryboot would not recognize my memory stick and gave me an error that said "Insert a USB stick or other external medium first, and try again." When trying to figure out how to solve this, I found a faster way. Instead, simply copy the squashed image to the /media/berryboot/images/ folder. You should see other images already installed here. (If you don't see any, try booting into another image you have installed and look again.) Once you copy the files there, just reboot, and the new os will appear in Berryboot.

Hey, while searching on how to implement RetroPie into Berryboot, I found this post. I'm about to try it out:

http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewt ... 78&t=54488

I hope more people will contribute to this forum, having it all right here would be great.

Thanks Ben. I added this to the list. I hope more people contribute too. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem that many people are using BerryBoot with their own images.

Also I have tried a few guides on how to convert. img to .squashfs, but it has not worked :evil: . If you've figured out how to do it, explain it well, please.
In particular, I have been following this "http://kll.engineering-news.org/kllfusi ... icle_id=45" and this "http://engineerdemos.blogspot.it/2012/0 ... 2714029461", but apparently I'm still missing something, or I'm wrong something.

Angry face :evil: indeed. I used http://forum.xbian.org/thread-477.html & http://forum.xbian.org/thread-280.html, but I had very little luck. I got PiMame to work, but I was never able to get any of the others to work. Sorry I can't help more.

I started this thread because I thought we could get a big list of working images and making it easier for the people having trouble with the squashing.

If you do get the image you want to use to work, please post it here to help others.

Pidora or Starcraft 1

Tue Apr 22, 2014 2:24 am

I am currently trying to get Pidora working on Berry Boot mainly because I have found a post that someone managed to get starcraft 1 working on that operating system. If there are any other ways to get it to work or someone who can explain how to make a squash file particularly on a windows 7 computer of Pidora I would like to know. The only reason I don't use Noobs is because I only have an 8 GB SD card so it is impossible to install all the operating systems I want to on it. So using Berry Boot where is can install directly to my hard Drive is quite useful.

Do you think you could resquash a newer version of these files? the emulators are a bit old

My RPi broke, and I can't get anyone to honor the warranty. So, I don't have any newer squashed images. Hopefully, others will have newer versions.

I was able to find I site that gave me all the code I needed to make a working Squashfs images. Thanks to supreeth bharadwaj at http://www.techknowblogging.com. Here is the link to the page the only problem is his single quote is a special character that notepad can read but the terminal can not. http://www.techknowblogging.com/2013/12 ... yboot.html. I'll put the code below. You need two thing installed first Kpartx and squashfs-tools. then you have to download the image you want to squash.

Code: Select all

 # installs kpartx and squashfs-tools
sudo apt-get install kpartx squashfs-tools
#
# This opens your image file. 
#Change the DownloadedImage.img to what your image file name is.
sudo kpartx -av DownloadedImage.img
#
# After opening the image it will give you at least two /dev/mapper/loop#p#.  
# You want the bigger of the partitions (Normally p2).  
# In this case it was loop 1 is the image and I want partition 2 because it is the bigger of the two.
# sudo mount /dev/mapper/loop1p2 /mnt
# Change # to the loop number the previous command reported.
#
sudo mount /dev/mapper/loop#p2 /mnt
#
# This is what make the image writable on berryboot
# This line should work as is.  It edits the file fstab on the image folder etc
sudo sed -i 's/^\/dev\/mmcblk/#\0/g' /mnt/etc/fstab
#
# This line is what takes the mounted image and converts it the a squashfs image.
# Note if you do this from the raspberry pi it will take several hours (dependent on the original image size).
# Change NewBerryBoot.img to the desired image name.
sudo mksquashfs /mnt NewBerryBoot.img -comp lzo -e lib/modules
#
# This unmounts the image you mounted at the beginning.
# This line should work as is
sudo umount /mnt
#
# This closes the image we opened at the beginning.
# Change the DownloadedImage.img to what your image file name is.
sudo kpartx -d DownloadedImage.img
Here are the two that I have done:

I have a small sdhc card on my b+ and needed to Add an OS (RetroPie) to a USB Flash Drive through BerryBoot and I wanted to make sure I had the Latest Build of RetroPie, so I just made one. I know a few people might find this useful so it was worth the time :)

I'm looking for the last Raspbmc image. Do you know where to find it? :?:

No, that is new. I'm glad they finally started to create something like that. the lack of a list of images was the reason I started this thread.

I tried using Raspbmc, but I was never able to make it work. I also looked on the web, but could not find it. It has been a while since I looked.

Thanks for this jer1691. I see RetroPie is now in http://sourceforge.net/projects/berrybo ... os_images/ but I did use the image you created a few weeks ago, so thanks for creating it :)

Did anybody squash a recent version of Kali (1.1.1)?

Did anybody squash RasPlex 0.6.0?

for RasPlex 0.6.0 just make a regular SD Image, boot to it, then after you're done, copy the SYSTEM file from the SD card, and rename it to RasPlex060.img or whatever, so long as .IMG is the extension; this is now your squash IMG.

edit: I just uploaded it

rasplex.0.6.0-squashfs.img (squashfs) 120MB

Hey thanks for all the cool squashed images. I am new to the Linux thing but have sucessfully got berrryboot and a bunch of OS running on my Pi2 with a 1TB external harddrive. I was wondering of someone could squash the new version of retropie v3.0 RC1

squshing images seems a bit out of my league at the moment.

cheers

OP lost interest? First post not updated for some time.

Q1: Can images be updated when booted (i.e. if you boot Raspbian can you apt-get upgrade and does it save updates)?

Q2: Can the image grow or otherwise what good is, say RetroPie if you dont have space for Roms?

Q3: Is it a simple case of totalling the image sizes and making sure they are less than your SD card? I have a Pi2 that I want to run RiscOS, Ubuntu, AEROS and maybe a couple more and want to work out the SD card size I need

Thanks

How are you all making the OpenElec images? I am stumped
