Re: Ubuntu Bionic for OpenFrame

Tried the download of the Pulse Squeezeplayer tar file.

Worked fine.

Except when I rebooted and journal errors prevented it from going to the desktop.

That and when I SSH'd to the device it because of the drive errors only had read access.

Re: Corrupt FS / Kernel AUFS / RO-Root

how come that happens? Dunno. It has always happened and over time will or can trash the USB stick. Initially here migrated to using an SSD drive, then an SSD stick but the issue with the disconnect always happens. Many years ago switched my Dockstar Debian computers (used for automation) to USB Ki...

Re: Ubuntu Bionic for OpenFrame

No biggy there Andy. The newly created OpenFrame 2 device has been working fine with reboots et al. I am thinking this was a new one that has little RWs on the eMMC. Really would like to fine a mini small SATA drive with a miniPCiE card to replace the internal combo WLAN / Bluetooth card on it. (not...

Re: Corrupt FS / Kernel AUFS / RO-Root

The eMMC is probably at the end life stage on the two Jogglers. I have this issue with a "few" older Jogglers. Watch the USB stick as it boots and you will see there is a time when the USB stick gets powered off while booting which over time will mess with the USB stick and eventually corrupt it unl...

Re: Ubuntu Bionic for OpenFrame

Today switching gears over to testing on an Openpeak 2 (with front speakers). BTW writing the OS to the Openpeak 2 eMMC was much faster and probably because the eMMC doesn't have a lot of read writes to it. and Updating my test Ubuntu modded Openpeak 1 tabletop that is utilizing an internal SSD to b...

Re: Ubuntu Bionic for OpenFrame

Yes I am impressed that I could fit a lite desktop on 600Mb. Yes most likely the two Jogglers have failing eMMCs.

Most likely it will run better on a USB stick.

Re: Ubuntu Bionic for OpenFrame

Update 21st of August 2019. I was able to get a desktop going on the Joggler eMMC. Used barebones lxde-core. Works well at around 600Mb. Followed Andy's steps above and added the barebones lxde-core. 1 - wrote image to USB stick 2 - booted with USB stick and wrote image to eMMC 3 - logged in as root...

Re: Ubuntu Bionic for OpenFrame

Wrote the image to the Joggler emmc. Working fine here Andy. Very nice!!! Note this Joggler has an adjusted Realtek NIC with ROM. Deleted my stuff here cuz I tried with two Jogglers. Then after a bit would get RW errors on the eMMC after a couple of reboots. I am assuming maybe I have too many RW's ...

Re: Solder header onto Joggler PATA port

Somewhere here have a bunch of these zif sockets. That said will take a close up picture of the socket installed in the Openframe2. With these sockets I used a flipped ZIF cable. It was long and I folded it inside of the OpenFrame. Will look for my box o zif sockets....thinking they are lost on my w...

Re: Fixing Jogglers

For Joggler #1: I have never changed the power board on one. For Joggler #2: I had one Joggler with the shifted screen up a bit a while ago. For me it appeared that the long multiwire LCD connector was loosey goosey a bit at the LCD end. I pushed it in to place (thinking it was on a a little bit of ...

Re: Logitech & Joggler stuff for free

@Paul,

I would like to try your Radio France plugin some time or another. Put a couple of Jogglers in mom's house to use as a squeezeplayer and screen saver.

Currently doing a custom Kodi box (TV Box with CoreElec) for streaming french TV for mom (using favorites).

Re: Coreboot and SeaBIOS

You can make up any MAC address you want or look up what OpenPeak was allocated for MAC addresses. Seabios ROM installation: 1 - boot up with last posted O2 OS. 2 - write the MAC changer dos image to a USB stick 3 - ssh to the O2 Joggler 4 - find the coreboot.rom on the USB stick (typically it is un...

Re: Coreboot and SeaBIOS

The O2 Joggler came with no Realtek NIC Chip rom - I do not know why it was never populated. The boot dos stick has an old Realtek NIC chip programmer software on it. Basically you just type the name of the program and the mac address you want to utilize. That is all there is to it. The reason for u...

Re: Coreboot and SeaBIOS

so is XPe that you use not Joggler specific ? Not really except for the audio / video drivers. It boots right from the internal SSD which is connected to the internal ZIF clip. This is a picture of an Ubuntu running modded Openpeak with an RTC clock, SSD USB stick and ZIF connected SSD drive. This ...
