Re: Gentoo live-USB for Bubba|2 updated (rev 1 boards supported)

Andy - sorry to hear that. If you are unable to boot even with a fresh 1.3.0 gentoo-on-b2 live-USB, it is possible that something has gone wrong with the mainboard (since the image will boot regardless of whether or not the internal HDD is detected correctly). What LED flash pattern do you see when ...

Re: Gentoo live-USB for Bubba|2 updated (rev 1 boards supported)

Hi Andy, OK then, first upgrade gcc: b2 home # nice emerge --update --verbose sys-devel/gcc When done, issue (see this link ): b2 home # gcc-config powerpc-e300c3-linux-gnu-4.9.4 b2 home # env-update && source /etc/profile b2 home # emerge --oneshot sys-devel/libtool If that goes ok, retry: b2 home ...

Re: Gentoo live-USB for Bubba|2 updated (rev 1 boards supported)

Hi Andy, What version of gcc do you currently have installed? If you do b2 home # gcc-config -l (that's an ell, not a one) what does it show? What about b2 home # gcc --version Your earlier --pretend emerge output showed [ebuild NS ] sys-devel/gcc-4.9.4:4.9.4::gentoo [4.8.4:4.8.5::gentoo] USE="cxx f...

Re: New Arch Linux Live-USB for B3 Released

Hi redw0001, it depends what sort of setup you want. It is sensible, even if the B3 is only going to run LMS, to keep an outbound network connection available via eth0, to allow updating etc. Also worth noting that the bridge interface br0 (=eth1 + optional WiFi, if present) already has a fixed IP a...

Re: Gentoo live-USB for Bubba|2 updated (rev 1 boards supported)

Hi Andy, that's actually pretty encouraging. The output indicates that the upgrade will go though OK, but Gentoo needs you to specify some additional package options ("USE flags" in Gentoo-ese) in order to proceed. Boot up your B2 with the live-USB, log in via ssh, and enter: b2 home # nano -w /etc/...

Re: Gentoo live-USB for Bubba|2 updated (rev 1 boards supported)

Hi - Ah, ok, so if you now run

Code: Select all

b2 home # emerge -v --oneshot --update portage
and then when that completes, please try:

Code: Select all

b2 home # emerge --deep --with-bdeps=y --changed-use --update --pretend --verbose @world
again, and post the results here.

Thanks, sakaki

Re: B3 and LMS

archlinuxarm.org does not have LMS in their official repo.
There is this project which apparently works, but I haven't tried it myself.
Best, sakaki

Re: Gentoo live-USB for Bubba|2 updated (rev 1 boards supported)

Hi Andy, sorry to hear you are having trouble with this >< When you say the system fails boot after update, are you holding down the small button on the back of your B2 when rebooting? Unless you have installed to the HD, you will need to do this each time you restart. Other than that, it has been q...

Re: New Arch Linux Live-USB for B3 Released

I have just posted a new (1.3.0) release of the Arch Linux Live-USB here . This release addresses an recent issue that was causing login problems for users of the prior 1.2.0 image, when they updated their system using pacman -Syu (the semantics of systemd-networkd-wait-online appear to have changed...

Problems with Arch Live-USB after pacman -Syu?

Hi, I've had a few Arch live-USB users email me recently, noting that they had issues logging in after performing a full system update via pacman -Syu, and then rebooting. Having looked into this, the issue appears to be that systemd-networkd-wait-online's behaviour has recently changed (specificall...

Re: Most recent image for B3

Hi seron, for convenience, and following on from what Binkem has just said, here is a list of currently available images for the B3 , together with some pros and cons (as I see it) for each (I have excluded the last 'official' Debian version, as that is now so old that running it constitutes a signi...

Re: New Arch Linux Live-USB for B3 Released

Hi victor, Sorry to hear you are having problems with this >< The arch live USB is reasonably stable now, with quite a number of users, so there are only a few likely problems that may be causing the issues you are experiencing. You can view the initramfs init script used here , and the sourced kexe...

Re: Arch: WAN interface does not go up automatically

Hi stasheck, if you are using the arch live-USB (v1.2) it is configured to use systemd-networkd on eth0. If you are only concerned about a race condition on a forced power-cycle, and willing to wait for eth0 to come up, you could use: [root@archb3 ~]# systemctl enable systemd-networkd-wait-online.se...

Re: RedSleeve v7 live-USB for B3 released (Linux 4.5.0)

Hi anat, further to what Gordon has said, as RedSleeve is not a rolling distribution, it won't post kernel updates very frequently in any event. As I mentioned in the original post, the kernel version supplied with RedSleeve v7 is 3.10.14, which is too low to support booting on the B3 (the necessary...

Re: failed to linearize skb with tiny unaligned fragment

Hi stasheck, haven't looked into this bug specifically, but if, as you say, it is kernel version specific, then you can easily roll back the kernel (inc. module set and headers) on your system and then 'pin' this in place (so it is not subsequently replaced by pacman -Syu). You can use the Arch Linu...
