Am I dreaming?

Sun Jan 27, 2013 12:31 pm

Hi to all,
I want to make a tablet with a battery that works wirelessly with the raspberry pi that is on the mains. I also want to have openSUSE on it. Is it possible to have a dvd or cd player that would work with OpenSUSE for the rpi? :shock: :shock:

Please Help??!!

Thanks a lot

OpenSuse is not an available Distribution for the Pi ARMv6, all Distributions are run from an SD Card inserted in the Pi

Maybe you could explain what you are trying to achieve ?
I will always assume you are running Raspbian for desktop and Raspbmc for XMBC !

Hi, on this website someone has openSUSE on the rpi: http://forums.opensuse.org/iiiiiiiioe-g ... y-pi.html
Here is a transalation (it is in Greek):
The openSUSE could be missing out on technology ARM. This time the technology development has focused on Pandaboard has older generation ARM processor from Raspberry Pi (the Raspberry Pi chose earlier due to cost).
A Bernhard M. Wiedemann (from SuSE offices in Nuremberg), managed and created an img file. I sent it to create the card at Summer Camp

Let's see how to create the card.
1. First download the current version raspberrypi-opensuse-20120810.img.gz . For new editions, you should see the website of Bernhard .
on the 2nd. Unzip the file (either graphically or by terminal).
3. Enter the uncompressed file to the terminal.
4. You should see that your system recognizes the card SD. This is done with the command df-h or better with CAT / proc / partitions . Suppose for example that is / dev/sdb1 .
on the 5th. Now you have to unmount the card SD. This is done with the command umount / dev/sdb1 . on the 6th. It's time to create your card. This will be done with the command:


Code:
dd bs = 1M if = raspberrypi-20120810.img of = / dev / sdb


PAY ATTENTION:
- The command works or if you give su.
- On your device recognizes it as your computer / dev / sdb.
- The file as you decompress the file and have it unzipped.
- Because not showing progress registration will soon be over. In case you get stuck, you can stop by opening another terminal and enter the command as an administrator pkill-USR1-N-x dd . the 7th. You have to give the command sync in order to eject the SD card and use it. That's it. Now you can enjoy yourself. Remember: To enter the system should use the codes







Code:
Username: root
Code:

Password: linux

Because I tried it on my old TV, I give you a picture: If you can not read grammatakia writes:



Code:
# cat /etc/*release
openSUSE 12.3 Milestone 0 (armv5tel)
VERSION = 12.3
CODENAME = Mantis
NAME=openSUSE
VERSION="12.3 Milestone 0 (Mantis)"
VERSION_ID="12.3milestone0"
PRETTY_NAME="openSUSE 12.3 Milestone 0 (Mantis) (armv5tel)"
ID=opensuse
ANSI_COLOR="0;32"
CPE_NAME="cpe:/o:opensuse:opensuse:12.3"


For more information on the technology ARM, can be found at Portal: ARM in the wiki of openSUSE (or Greek , as translated on behalf of Google Code In).
Finally, you can join the mailing list by sending a blank mail to opensuse-arm + subscribe AT opensuse DOT org and follow the registration process. You can see the file list .

To add a graphic (after my communication with Bernhard):

Code:
# for HDMI (1920x1080 for me) without black borders:
echo disable_overscan=1 > /boot/config.txt
# Through http://elinux.org/RPi_config.txt

# This is how I got X11 working:

zypper in --no-recommends icewm xinit xauth xterm \
XF86-video-fbdev xorg-x11-driver-input

echo export WINDOWMANAGER=icewm > /etc/profile.d/windowmanager.sh

# X defaults to vesa without this override:
cat >/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-device.conf <<EOF

Section "Device"
Identifier "Default Device"
Driver "fbdev"
EndSection
EOF

# reboot once
# Startx

Thanks a lot :D :D

Yes September 2012, I would not call that a full usable Distro, there has been many Kernel Changes since then
I will always assume you are running Raspbian for desktop and Raspbmc for XMBC !

Opensuse kernel cant handel SHDC

Fri Feb 01, 2013 9:53 pm

Hello,

I played this week with the Opensuse Image ...
http://zq1.de/Ebernhard/linux/opensuse/ ... 810.img.gz
from Eberhard on one of My Pi

( referenced fromy http://forums.opensuse.org/iiiiiiiioe-g ... ry-pi.html )

- pi with 512 MB
- 64GB Transend SCXD Card

Expirences :

- image not ready for 512MB PI´s
- I Got most of the Yast stuff to work by manualy install it and fix dependencys ,
( i am an suse freak since the first suse release betta ~1993 ... )

- The Current Image missung massivly kernel Modules ( i.e Network , )
and/or PI required Compiled things .

- kernel panic after try install any kind of RPM.
-> reason : the 3.1.27 kernel been TOO old due missing the right SD SCXD Card support.

My 64G SD Card works on the same PI with current fc17/18 and debian well.

Trying kernel to compile BUGed allways on the Image provided kernel..
I´ll try an chrooted kernel recompile ( via from an debian PI running ..) upcoming week and build my own kernel RPM ( nothing new for me .. ).

I forced also usage aaa_base , udev updates..
-> systemd works basicly ,
but it Missing the required Kernel support at the provided kernel, thus the systemd was going to suspend the system to singelmode :evil:

Systemd works fine from FC18 remix betta3 - tested.

It rumors that the OpenSuSe Arm release Team members started allready to build new PI 12.3 Milestone2 , see:

IMage : http://download.opensuse.org/ports/armv ... 0.3.raw.xz

CRC: http://downloadcontent.opensuse.org/por ... bz2.sha256




Will keep updated if interested someone :-).

This given statement may wrong at this Date ... Next Opensuse Arm ( 12.3 ) may have PI support build in.
There exist no seperate Opensuse Arm Distro for PI - just the basic image differs.

see berndards Images at http://zq1.de/~bernhard/linux/opensuse/

Cool 8-)

But no need to shout man. ;)
Noob is not derogatory the noob is just the lower end of the noob--geek spectrum being a noob is just your first step towards being an uber-geek ;)

If you find a solution please post it in the wiki the forum dies too quick

You can change it by install kde or what you like using zypper .. bevor that get up the yast distro updater ..

Well that, i tested allready and the Kernel 3.1.10 been massivly Outdated as the Oktober 2012 image.
3.1.10 can not handel sd cards bigger then 16G that i have here .

Try please install kernel-source from zypper and tell me if you expirence still an kernel panic as i have here allways.. at current

Undertook a zypper dist-upgrade and the kernel is now 3.1.10-1.20 http://en.opensuse.org/Portal:Zypper

Noticed using ARMv5tel packages / rpm

I suppose we could say Beta testing ?? :roll:

Well , feedback : the said SuSEStudio based disto don´t startup on my PI .
reason : Given Image may incomple as its missing the /boot on vfat.

The Bernhard image is now up to 13.1 release. I installed it last week, and other than it being JeOS (bare naked would be a better description), it worked just fine. Got yast onboard, etc etc. No problem.

Only one issue, and I am about to start a thread for it: rpi-update. I had a hardware issue with an external SSD drive setup. Based on other inquiries around the error message, it seemed that it might most likely be a firmware issue. I can't reproduce the issue (a mounting error) in Raspbian. And I don't think I can get rpi-update to work in openSuse. Rpi-update seems to be the fix.

So, I'm using Raspbian, and missing yast
:(

Return to “openSUSE”
