Title: Linaro image available
Post by: davidefa on December 28, 2012, 02:11:27 pm
Linaro ALIP image available ( uploading now, ready in a few hours ) at the following link:

www.davidefabbri.net/files/arm/olinuxino_linaro_alip_12_11.zip (http://www.davidefabbri.net/files/arm/olinuxino_linaro_alip_12_11.zip)

- it is a linaro alip ( lubuntu 12.04 widh lxde desktop environment, minimal )
- kernel 3.4.19
- to setup networking you can edit /etc/network/interfaces
- it takes 45 secs to boot ( on a class 4 sd card )
- the image will fit a 4GB or bigger sd card

A description of the various linaro versions (https://wiki.linaro.org/Platform/DevPlatform/Rootfs)

P.S. use dd to copy the image on a sd card
P.P.S. I think it would be usefull to have a set of prebuilt images to test
NOTE corrected the link to the image

Very nice system, boots very fast (25 seconds) !  :)
I have to recompile the kernel to have NFS deamon enabled and SPI support. Where can I find the kernel 3.4.19 sources for mach_sun5i ?

Thanks
Luc

I see two issues with this image:

1. I2C is set to 200 kHz and will not work with many UEXT modules which only accept 100 kHz, should be easy to re-compile the kernel with 100 kHz, Davide where you got the sources for this kernel?

2. AX88772B is not enabled in the Kernel so the USB-ETHERNET adapter is not working

Is it possible to burn this image on NAND Flash instead of booting from sd card?
We do not use android, and want to burn linux in nand flash. Is there any guide for that?

that would be possible when Linux-Sunxi uboot support NAND flash, Henrik Nordstrom is working on this

Hi, I have installed your image and it almost work perfect. I'm having a few problems, mostly related to drivers. I have the Olinuxino A13 with the LDC (no touchscreen). First, my keyboard is not recognized. It's a logitec wireless, and it works on debian and android without problems. I have the same problem with other generic usb devices, for example MIDI interface.

The second problem is that I cannot compile my own drivers. Seems that the file /lib/modules/3.4.29+/build and source do not exist... actually they exist but are symbolic links pointing to /home/davidefa/olinuxino/linux-sunxi. 

My third issue are a few questions. Have anyone managed to run ALSA for use MIDI and audio? Or, have anyone used audio output and intput at the same time?

I have compiled an audio application using the Juce framework. I can use the audio output, but not the input at the same time.

I'll appreciate any help.

Thanks.

I have solved most of my problems. But I had to recompile my own kernel and install debian. Now I can playback audio to a Behringer USB soundcard and my MIDI keyboard is recognized, but still it does not work correctly with Puredata.

I hope to have running my setup soon.

Hello.

I have question about memory. Htop shoes that full memory is 330mb. I assume that other memory is used by GPU. Can I change this split? I need some more memory for compilaiton on board.

Thanks in advance.

Requires a kernel level change. You can pull Cedar support out and get about 80MB more, which would be the first thing I'd do. You could also install my image, swap to headless for your full 512MB, do the compile via ssh/vnc, and then jump back to the video kernel after you're done.
