Uninstalling the SP should bring back the previous /var/cache files.

But as your X is broken, that is a bit hard to do.

the /var/cache files is the only thing in the SP that could be causing your problem.

Um, there is one thing, I only tested on the Pi2. Could the new kernel have a problem with the Pi3? I will find out.

I don't know why that should be, as I used the same /proc/config.gz as in Quirky 8.1.2. Only made minor changes.

EDIT:
Running on the Pi3 right now. I tested a new 8.1.3, also 8.1.2 with 8.1.2-to-8.1.3 Service Pack. Both OK.

Tex Dog,
Have a close look at your SP PET. Open it up:

# tar -zxf service_pack-8.1.2_TO_8.1.3-xerus.pet

...does it have the '/var' folder inside? If so, you haven't got the fixed PET. This could happen due to caching on the Internet.

I really should have bumped the version number, to, say, 8.1.3.1.

Upgrading quirky to 8.1.3 went well for me. I have had success using sound through hdmi without external speakers:

Code:
amixer cset numid=3 2
amixer cset numid=2 100%


To revert sound to audio jack:

Code:
amixer cset numid=3 1


Installed chromium-browser from:

http://raspberrypi.stackexchange.com/questions/45150/install-chromium-on-ubuntu-mate-raspberry-pi

It starts with:

Code:
xhost +SI:localuser:spot
su spot
chromium-browser --user-data-dir=/root/spot


Installed pepperflash:

https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=66&t=99202

The outdated howto for raspbian works in quirky, too. Tried my "quirky" national TV website: it works pretty well. Now I can use quirky as main SO for my raspberry pi 3 model B.

Yes, the "trailing garbage" message is correct. There is a checksum on the end of the PET, that is not part of the compressed file.

Hmmm, no /var, so you do have the corrected SP.
In that case, I haven't got a clue why you are getting errors.

If you examine each file in the SP, and the pinstall.sh script, there doesn't seem to be anything that will cause "missing libs" error messages.

PostPosted: Mon 28 Nov 2016, 21:06    Post subject: Sound Hdmi ALSA
Subject description: No sound on reboot after undate to .3
 

Built new SD card
Set up - changed to HDMI output for sound
Ran two files from memory stick, sound and video worked. (did not reboot before update)

Down loaded update to .3, all seemed to work, told me to reboot.

After reboot, Video works.

NO SOUND,

Running wizard for ALSA does not effect anything. No test sound, etc.
Last option to select second sound card the HDMI does nothing.

Sorry for bad news.

found error in fstab

after upgrade.

I was able to duplicate lock and success, I use a USB harddrive ( the kind that spins ) for my root. In both cases of failure it was on a normal ext4 either sda3 or sda4 ( leapfrog new updates so one boots) Corrected fstab and success.

The Service Pack does not alter /etc/fstab

Aargh! That's one thing I didn't check. Will take a look at it. I'm going to be p**sed off if sound is broken on my new kernel!

But watchdog reported sound working on 8.1.3.

A thought has occurred to me. When the window pops up telling you that the SP has installed, it advises to reboot now, but also says to "wait a few minutes for the install to complete".

After a few minutes, another window comes up indicating completion.

However, if someone reboots before that, it may break something.

This was not such as issue on desktop PCs, but the Pi is so slow, a user might get impatient and reboot before the install has completed.

I have added a note to my to-do list to prevent a reboot or shutdown until the SP, or any PET, has fully completed installing.

Finally managed to boot from a flash drive on Raspi 2.
You have to let the SD card inserted all the time. It just contains the latest bootcode.bin and eventually a "timeout" file.

I am on 8.1.3 and I need to install a package called "build-essential". However, I get a message telling me to first install devx-8.1.3-xerus.pet which I can't find in http://distro.ibiblio.org/

Can you help?
Thanks
