The new release is not a tiny standalone USB fix, but bumps Linux to a newer version (3.2.27).El_Presidente wrote:Any chance of convergence with some of the later Raspbian Wheezy builds that have been looking to address USB firmware/driver settings? The fixes are getting very positive reviews.
No problem, the wait will probably be worth it. Should mean I can run my HDD and other USB devices while booting though Berryboot. Well on the way to making the Pi the whole hub of my entertainment life!Max wrote:So going to wait a couple days before shipping that release through Berryboot.

In the case of OpenELEC simply get the SYSTEM file from the updated files.migube wrote: so probably neither openELEC
Try going to the Berryboot rescue shell by selecting "cancel" in Berryboot boot menu.alias_neo wrote:Has anybody got a way of enabling SSH on OpenELEC while using this?
According to the OpenELEC wiki it requires "ssh" in the cmdline.txt, but it would appear that berry boot starts it in such a way that it doesn't read this file.
Code: Select all
touch /mnt/data/OpenELEC_r11659/storage/.config/ssh_enable umount -ar sync <press ctrl-alt-del> and try OpenELEC again.
Do not plan to add a LAMP distribution, as I feel both Apache and MySQL are too heavy weight.RichShumaker wrote:I would love a LAMP pre-built for BerryBoot
Any ability to add LAMPi to the list?
I am manually setting it up now but having it in BerryBoot would be awesome

Rename that to OpenELEC.img128, put it on an USB stick, and add it to Berryboot.
It already has the right SquashFS image format.
When you change the config.txt does that mean all OS's will use those overclocked values?Max wrote:Be aware that when started through Berryboot there will not be any overclocking by default.
Overclock setting have to be stored in config.txt on the boot partition, and cannot be embedded inside the squashfs file.
Still interesting testcase to see if there is any difference in performance between media center distributions when all run at stock frequency.

This sounds like a really good idea. (using CEC enabled TV remote as up/down arrow for selecting OS)battletux wrote:Any chance CEC support can be added for the installer/boot menu at all? Would make it simpler when booting on a TV to launch openelec/other xbmc distro?
Simpy make OpenELEC the default distribution in the menu editor.Would make it simpler when booting on a TV to launch openelec/other xbmc distro?

Images are stored as-is in compressed format on the SD card.troombatzia wrote: First, thanks for the tool. Then, I hope one day I'll use it. While waitng for the Raspy board, I've a question. In the installer menu files sizes are reported. I would like to know if squashfs images must be uncompressed before coping to SD card. If I want to install Raspian, OpenLec and Puppy, how much SD space will I need? Fondamentally, I would like to know if the OS reported file size is tha same required space on SD card.
Thanks for answer. I suppose that after installing few OSes, I will be able to setup a 'extra' partition to store data as I can do in normal linux distros. Does BerryBoot reserves automatically not used SD space to create a data partition or to save data?Max wrote:Images are stored as-is in compressed format on the SD card.
So reported file size equals space required.
(well almost. 64 MB is reserved for the first partition containing the firmware and kernel files, and 10 MB on the second partition. So need 74 MB extra).
All the files of all operating systems end up in the same data partition.troombatzia wrote: Let's say: I install Raspian on 8 Gb sd card. The remaining space is ~ 7.5 GB. I boot Raspian, I then download a 1 GB file. Where that file is stored on SD? Where that file goes if I then install another OS? Thanks.
