What do you mean ?



L.E. You meant the armedslack distro. ArmedSlack-13.37-23.05.2012 is the latest release.

Yes. As an extra you can install LXDE.

That new kernel would help if you use netfilter (iptables, router, firewall).

I Need Something With A Network Browser Natively If I remember LXDE Doesn't.

LXDE has LXNM as a network manager but the latest source is from 2008,but no network browser.

thanks sorinm for the prebuilt image, really nice work: works fine here, also LXDE (my desktop of choice).

@smuggly: FYI, pcmanfm can do smb network browsing if built over gvfs, as it will use the gio access modules gvfs provides.
it can also manage removable devices: here I use it with udisks, upower, sg3_utils and libatasmart for that.

Has any of you already tried running the slackware installer on the Pi? I tried it yesterday, but it spat a couple of errors on me, complaining mostly about tmpfs not being included in the kernel and is needed by udev. Also /dev and /proc seem to be rather deserted. If the missing tmpfs is the only thing a quick recompile of the raspi kernel should do the trick. I'm doing this mostly for research purposes, looking at the install times of raspbian being 9 hours, it doesn't seem to be very practical... But who knows, maybe we can prove slackware is better (once again) :). Or perhaps if we could circumvent the whole udev? Not really fluent in the low level stuff...

Seems TMPFS is enabled in the standard raspi kernels... strange. Must be something else.

How did you ran slackware installer ?

Here are the supported platforms: http://www.armedslack.org/supported_platforms

For the unsupported you have the mini rootfs.

Well, I took the versatile initrd and replaced the modules with the ones from raspi firmware. I tried using it as the initrd, but I failed somehow, so I extracted the initrd to a newly created ext4 partition on the sd card and booted the pi. It looked like it worked, but it didn't. Now I'm wondering whether it could have been caused by wrong file permissions... I copied it as a regular user... in haste :).

Versatile is another platform, it won`t work with Ras Pi.

The Pi won`t work with a initrd. The kernel is loaded by the start.elf or by the loader.bin.

New Kernel Release:

Version 91d69f298d:

Based on the latest sources.

Changes:

- Enable PREEMPT and SCHED_AUTOGROUP
- Added support for USB webcams
- Enable ipv6 due to popular demand

Extra:

- Netfilter support
- QoS support
- NTFS RW
- PPPoE support

This kernel was compiled with "adv" localversion, this means the kernel name is now 3.1.9adv+ and the modules will be located in /lib/modules/3.1.9adv+ (adv = advanced options)

Get it from: http://ns1.spit-ct.ro/raspberrypi/kernel-pi-91d69f298d/

Just got my R-Pi up and running and have quickly tried Debian and Slackware using the original image from ArmedSlack-13.37-18.05.2012.zip. Thanks very much for that.
To get DHCP to give me an address for eth1 (not the usual eth0!) edited /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf to:
USE_DHCP[1]="yes"

I am suffering from the sticky key problem - with a Microsoft Wireless Multimedia Keyboard Model 1014 and mouse. Seems less sticky with Slackware! Have a surge protected 5v @ 1000mA rated PSU from MasterPlug.

Using a 1280x1024 monitor via a cheap HDMI to DVI-D cable the picture and font quality are excellent.

Then got the system to run without a dedicated monitor using X11 forwarding to my regular Slackware PC's monitor inspired by this:
http://www.linux-tip.net/cms/content/view/302/26/

My actual recipe is:
1/ On Raspberry Pi:
edit /etc/ssh/ssh_config and /etc/ssh/sshd_config thus:

Code: Select all

diff ssh_config ssh_config.original 
21,22c21,22
<    ForwardAgent yes
<    ForwardX11 yes
---
> #   ForwardAgent no
> #   ForwardX11 no

Code: Select all

diff sshd_config sshd_config.original 
90c90
< X11Forwarding yes
---
> #X11Forwarding no
Then run commands:

Code: Select all

/etc/rc.d/rc.sshd stop
/etc/rc.d/rc.sshd start
# 2. On regular Slackware PC: set up 2nd X server on display :12 using vt12

Code: Select all

X :12.0 vt12 2>&1 >/dev/null &
# 3. On regular Slackware PC: open xterm on display :12, executing SSH to Raspberry Pi and start XFCE4 desktop

Code: Select all

xterm -display :12.0 -e 'ssh -Y dad@192.168.1.9 xfce4-session' &
Obviously change dad and 192.168.1.9 to your specific values!

CTRL + ALT+ F12 to see the xterm and enter the Password as requested which starts xfce. You should see a warning about "No xauth data" and then about 10 lines of various ominous warnings and errors but xfce should start fine.

Cheers,
Peter

thanks to this image I've made a successful install of armedslack-current (ARMv5te) :)
to install it I've:
- uncompressed the latest miniroot (updated two days ago) in the root partition of the SD containing the armedslack-13.37 preassembled image, deleting before everything but the kernel modules;
- added "/usr/sbin/ntpdate pool.ntp.org &" to etc/rc.d/rc.local (no hwclock on the raspberrypi);
- applied some small fixes to etc/rc.d/rc.S, etc/inittab and etc/hosts found in this very topic (thanks sorinm!);
- booted the thingie from the SD;
- set the timezone with timeconfig;
- mounted via NFS the armedslack-current folder and installed the rest with "upgradepkg --install-new", as I want to try all the stuff;
- to fix fonts I run pkgtool -> setup (but I think I should also have just rebooted to let the init scripts take care ot that).

and armedslack-current is up and running :)

I've built also some additions to enjoy it more:
- the latest LXDE desktop and qupzilla from my repository for current;
- a new kernel (following the guide above), applying the bfs and bfq patches (and using the two) and switching from SLAB to SLUB too.

now I'm having a look at distcc to ease the pain of building stuff (as already reported, the kernel alone needed 6 hours :o ).

Nice work. I wanted to make an image for the Pi with the -current packages but there are not so many changes compared to 13.37. I wanted something stable (every -current is stable) and installing and removing packages on the Pi is a slow process. I didn`t wanted to run slackpkg update && slackpkg upgrade-all every time Patrick compiled something.

6 hours for the kernel is fast. Building webkitgtk+ for midori took 24+ hours. :twisted:

What Do I Do To replace The Above Kernel To The Image? Or Is It Already Updated? Thanks Smuggly

mv /boot/kernel.img /boot/kernel.img.old

Then uncompress kernel-pi-91d69f298d.tar.gz. Copy boot/kernel.img to /boot and lib/modules/3.1.9adv+ to /lib/modules.

The top command will move the new kernel and save the old? Just Wanna Be Sure? Thanks smuggly

Or just rename the old kernel so i can move the new in!

Also Is there going to be an update process? or is this the update process? Thanks Very Much For all you're work...

The first command will rename the vmlinuz, the core kernel, to make room for the new image.

Then you copy the modules to /lib/modules and the kernel.img to /boot
