Yesterday did not really have much time to tinker due to wife duties and today we have a BBQ for grandkids (3 now)...and here I go off topic on a little bender...
That and finished the PFSense box configuration ...middle of the night (morning) ...configuration and testing while wife was sleeping.
Also tweaking a new mini automation box....running on a BeeLink BT3 Pro - removed W10 on it and replaced it with Ubuntu 18.04 and Oracle Virtual box running Windows 7 embedded. Just running windows on it here for Microsoft SAPI. Automation is with Homeseer and Home Assistant and using MQTT for it. Now the box can manage my Alexa devices and use them as media boxes plus still have commands from Alexa to automation devices. Lots of voices in the house today.
Base Openpeak 1's serve as tabletop touchscreens and then there are Squeezeplayers (O2 base on eMMC's) and test Openpeak1's and 2 running Ubuntu.
Concurrently have been building Ubuntu TVBoxes running KODI to replace the old Aopen Ubuntu KODI boxes. Very light and works great with Armbian here and really don't want to use Android so wiping out android on the eMMC and replacing it with Ubuntu...mostly playing with S912 Octocore ARM mini TV Boxes. Got three now running great. So cheap to do and very fast GPUs (4k HD). IE: don't watch much regular TV but now have all 4K HD televisions here.
I have never built a Joggler firmware image before.
Andy, what are the steps involved to do this?
are my obi wan as I have not a clue as my fingers just type disconnected from my head...
I see all of the files in the //dl.birdslikewires.net/openframe/ubuntu/testing/5.1.7op1/ and understand the patches you made for the audio stuff.
I see the netplan configuration is in the boot directory and configured for DHCP. Is the device just doing that auto mac address gen thing?
I was going to upgrade the NIC firmware on it for a new and permanent MAC address on the O2 Joggler. Steps for this are:
1 - update boot rom to seabios
2 - boot with DOS and write new rom to Realtek chip
3 - using Seabios write old boot rom back to O2 (O2 ROM)
I do have an image posted here for a DOS boot stick with three boot roms and the Realtek NIC rom writer (but it is in DOS)...wish it was done up in Linux.
Fast and easy but a hardware modification and may be over the top for the O2 Joggler base.
Noticed too that base Ubuntu 19.04 image is around 800Mb with only a few adds. I have yet to write it to the eMMC as I just used the emmc as a cache drive.
Will it work for a Squeezeplayer only build using 19.04 and fitting it on the O2 Joggler eMMC of 1Gb?
Still working on the screen saver O2 Jogglers here. Works well with the older build of Squeezeplayer...but I want to schedule an on and off of the screen thing...
I've attached the link for the DOS boot stick to write a new ROM to the Realtek NIC...
This includes a variety of roms: seabios, O2, Avaya...et al.
