Quote from: drspastic on January 25, 2013, 09:44:17 AMhmmm so if mali 400 aint fully implemented in the kernel then i guess allwinner are trying to push us all to android....no thanks allwinner.as for ubuntu, i used it for many years but gave up when it started getting really fat and lazy like windows.i imagine switching now will put you back a few paces, it it worth it? besides debian is a very standard base with lots of support and more likely to fit with industrial use.a good one to play with if you want to expand is slack. just for pure stability.both deb and buntu have a really fat bag of apps available , i hear rumours that ubuntu changed something with the latest releases that make package management incompatible with earlier staff and deb.maybe that wont affect arm repos. im no expert.for my penny, you invested so much time getting so far with deb v10 image it might be best to stay debian.and hope allwinner cough up some more code for the mali400
Quote from: drspastic on January 25, 2013, 09:49:39 AMps. how about trying to shrink the system into a true lightweight like the many sub 200meg distros? what is it that makes them not need the extra gigabytes? the board dont have much hardware to support.

Quote from: drspastic on January 25, 2013, 04:40:20 PMi suppose the dev stuff does eat a lot but true we will need it to be able to progress in our individual end applications. i think i have got stuck into an unhealthy pattern of thinking after years of using tiny, include everything, run in ram distros. looking back i see that on my laptop my 'tiny 130M distro' after i added the dev stuff (160M) and then another 500M that seems to have fell in a memory hole somewhere, it aint that small any more.now about the sound, do you think i will be able to get it running without any fiddling with kernels?i will do some reading up on the interweb and see if theres anything, but please tell me if im wasting my time.the linaro image did seem to work well but i kicked it aside as i couldnt get the net working. i will bitch no more about ubuntu. its been a while since i last used it, although i do use lupu 5.28 which is based on it and runs well in minimal systems.most of the ham radio apps i need are available in ubuntu and debian, and i will look forward to '11' whatever flavour you make it.
Quote from: JohnS on January 25, 2013, 04:58:36 PMRather than less I was going to ask for more. Actually, sort of the opposite (read on...)With chasing my AXP209 problem I've not kept up with recent releases but what I mean above is:as well as more can we have less? That is, the less command John
Quote from: Ekkehard on January 25, 2013, 06:39:18 PMjwischka,packages that I'd like to see?As I said earlier, with a networked nix box, time stamps are close to mandatory, so ntp would be niceI personally like sshfs to mount my *real* disk during development so I don't wear out the SD cardYeah - less would be more Maybe g++?How much room is left to fill 4G?I will also use apache2 and a bunch of simple web pages as the ultimately only way to communicate with the OlinuXino in my application. But I won't favor including it in the standard package. After all, once networked, apt-get install is rather easy to use.You said you had performance issues with apache? It served my (admittedly simple) web pages with rather good performance - no complaints here...
Quote from: skenter on January 25, 2013, 11:58:12 PMDear jwischka thank you for this amazing work. I have a question regarding booting. I am using headless version (R10) and I realize that the only way to boot normal the board is to have connected the serial cable. Is this a normal behavior? This is a problem because i want to use the board on embedded system and there is no way to connect the serial port every time. Do you know who I can change this behavior Thank you
Quote from: jwischka on January 26, 2013, 12:05:30 AMYou should be able to connect via SSH or VNC, once the board is booted and has a network connection - but the board should boot without a serial connection.Quote from: skenter on January 25, 2013, 11:58:12 PMDear jwischka thank you for this amazing work.

$ g++ --version-bash: g++: command not found$
Quote from: Ekkehard on January 26, 2013, 12:40:05 AMjwischka,you said g++ is always installed. You sure?I just didCode Select Expand$ g++ --version-bash: g++: command not found$on a brand-new headless R10 image. gcc is there, just g++ isn't. Not sure how important it is for this community - it is 19.1 MB additional space... My code won't compile without it, but of course I don't mind at all installing it myself. Just wanted to be sure we're on the same page with respect to it being pre-installed.
