Re: Building for Joggler on a PC .

wondering how BuZz and Roobarb build theirs , is it all done on a Joggler ? Nay, it's all done on a server just outside of Lille these days! :) It's largely based around the debootstrap build tool - if you're happy reading through scripts then a good place to look is at of-imgcreate , which deals w...

This seem to have broken the backlight driver on the OF2. All new images boot to a very low dim level.
I'll check it out when I'm next near an OF2.

Re: Ubuntu Bionic for OpenFrame

1. Boots Good! 2. Can I ssh login? Yes, by default with root user enabled. Password is 'joggler'. 3. Is wifi enabled on first boot? Where can I set the boot wifi settings (eg. interfaces)? It is, edit the file 'network.yaml' on the boot partition (the one you can see from Windows after you've writt...

Re: Ubuntu Bionic for OpenFrame

Roobarb, is it possible to boot the joggler directly to kodi without the need to login screen and entering the command "kodi" . I saw some examples online but none seems to work with XORG. Will appreciate your help Yeah, create a file called '.xinitrc' in the home directory of the user you wish to ...

Re: Making my Joggler useful again

Your best bet to just get it doing something vaguely useful quickly is probably to try SqueezePlay OS on an external memory stick, though that won't get you Google Calendar. The user interface is always the sticking point - showing a calendar isn't too tricky, but interacting with it is. Oh, or you ...

Re: Ubuntu Bionic for OpenFrame

Roobarb. Thanks. Did you remove any graphics or backlight drivers in the new kernels? The OF2 devices with the speakers in the front all boot to a very dimmed screen. Previous kernels were ok. Just wondering what is broken. I have two of such and same issue. But when i load the original files, they...

The "of-expand" command still not working on OF2 devices.
Ooh, good catch. I'll check it out.
Thanks for reporting that, all fixed now with any luck. You can grab an updated version of the script from here and I'll regenerate the images.

Re: Ubuntu Bionic for OpenFrame

Don't panic folks, links will be down to images for a couple of hours while a new version compiles. I left HPET (High Precision Event Timer) support enabled, which isn't required on the OpenFrames and started to cause issues on the new kernel 5.4, so I decided to remove it from all kernels and let t...

Re: Ubuntu Bionic for OpenFrame

How would you go about putting a full desktop on it 3.16 will be on a flash drive. Yeah, use an external drive and once you're booted run: of-expand It'll reboot and be resized to the full space on the USB drive. Just don't pull the plug on it until it's finished resizing - once the 'expand' file d...

Re: Ubuntu Bionic for OpenFrame

could do with optimizing for more speed if it's possible. There's not much more that can be done to eek out more speed; the only thing that's really up there is to get hardware accelerated decoding working - but the payoff is likely to be small given we've already got OpenGL up and running, unless ...

Re: Ubuntu Bionic for OpenFrame

Is there a way to show a clock face screensaver on the joggler with this ubuntu without adding a desktop? Something I can set to run via putty? Yeah, just install xscreensaver. There are a bunch of command line only ones too, but xscreensaver has the biggest selection. You don't need to install a d...

Re: Ubuntu Bionic for OpenFrame

Thank you for all your effort's for the trusty old joggler's. Good till 2023 apparently. Got to find time to play with now. No problem - I like hearing it's useful to people! Yeah, official end of 32-bit support is 2023, but Ubuntu also has an extended programme of support. Though it's a paid-for t...

Re: Ubuntu Bionic for OpenFrame

Dunno why but the build wouldn't stand up to reboots for me scrambling the internal 1Gb or 2Gb eMMC. Thought it was a bad eMMC then updated it with old build and its been fine with constant testing reboots 1-14 days after installation. Am going to try a build and not touch it keeping it at a comman...

Jinxed it. It's doing the 'wrong architecture' problem like the last kernel did because I'm building 32-bit in a chroot on a 64-bit system and it's misidentifying it. Nearly lunchtime, I'll see if I can fix it.

Re: SqueezePlay for Joggler (Native, Ubuntu & SQPOS)

Okay, turns out that quite some time ago the update code on the website broke. It's now fixed, but I'm not going to get chance to look at this again for a bit. Hopefully there's enough back in action for the installation script to work again now - it's certainly generating the correct versions again...
