Re: BBC Microcomputers

I've only ever used a BBC at school and a couple of times on the Doomsday Laser disc set up that they had , it was sort of the internet before it existed . A friend of mine, who I've not seen in many years, was the UK side of the CAMiLEON project which first read the data from those laserdiscs. Got...

Re: Forum / Site updates

If only I could sort out the darn audio switching issue on recent kernels, but every time I go to look at it there's a new release and ALSA has changed again!

BBC Microcomputers

Hey everyone, Apologies that I've not done so much with the OpenFrames as I would have liked recently, but I've been rediscovering my old pal, the 8-bit BBC Micro! What is now my Model B was bought new back in 1982(ish) by my Dad. While searching for bits and pieces for it, I developed a habit of ta...

Re: SqueezePlay for OpenFrame

Is there any way to use the joggler with the spotty plugging literally just to control playback on a pc? (instead of playing on the joggler itself?) Yes, I think I've done this in the past... IIRC it works in the same way as remote controlling any Spotify client from another... I remember clicking ...

Interesting. I'll take a look at that on my OF2.

That's the reflash system /boot you're looking at in Windows, it doesn't exist on there. It's only on the payload.

Re: What can i still do with a joggler?

What does using spoify look like using Squeeze OS and is the version in the thread post 1 that is linkled above still the most current version? I used to use Spotify with the Spotty (?) plugin for Logitech Media Server, it worked very well. You used the on-screen keyboard to search for songs or pla...

Re: What can i still do with a joggler?

Most uses I know about are running Squeezeplay (still very popular) or displaying home automation control panels through a web browser. I really must add an easy-installer for Chrome without a desktop at some point, it works very well. They also work brilliantly for displaying graphs and general mon...

Re: Ubuntu Bionic for OpenFrame

How do you like the dashboard for Hubitat on the Openframe? Barely had chance to do anything with it to be honest. By default it's a bit clunky, but some recent third-party updates have started to bring it to life. I love the Maker API on Hubitat though. It is so fast and easy to use, just send a H...

Been using the other 15 "Jogglers" here for Windows embedded touchscreens for automation and three for Squeezeplayers. Niiiiiice! :D I've recently discovered Hubitat and got all my AlertMe devices (what Iris in the US was derived from) working again. Yes, I went nuts and wrote all the dri...

Re: Ubuntu Bionic for OpenFrame

Want to play with the audio after I get this mouse going. That would be amazing. Any steps forward would be great, it's the last remaining bug! If you check /usr/sbin/of-identifier it has a little bit of code in there that triggers one of three (kernel 3, 4 or 5) patches for the audio which you cou...

Re: Ubuntu Bionic for OpenFrame

Update on this 5.4.69 based image; it's all working correctly except I've left hyperthreading off - I'll fix that, because it does make a difference. FIXED, 05/10/20@2327 However, the usual problem with the audio IC is back. Essentially, with the default ALSA configuration the internal speaker canno...

Re: Ubuntu Bionic for OpenFrame

Well, I honestly didn't think I'd get around to it this soon, but kernel 5.4.69 has just compiled successfully on my test VM with overlayfs and zram baked in. I'll package it up and feed it into the image builder, see if that can't mess things up. The custom modules are probably kaput. A few seconds...

Re: Ubuntu Bionic for OpenFrame

it would be really helpful if the forthcoming Debian image had overlayfs and zram support enabled in the kernel. No problem, I will sort this out, work has just been so crazy recently that the thought of sitting in this chair any longer at the end of the day has not been enticing! Anyway, I trust y...

No worries. I'm going to try to get the latest 5.x longterm kernel working soon. But I say soon, this whole virus affair has me rather busy at the moment. :roll:

It's so bad my own kitchen joggler has been sat on a login prompt for months!
