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!



Reloaded the ssd with .2,
Performed set up, speaker barked on HDMI

Ran the two video's.

REBOOTED

No longer any sound.
Alsa wizard the same results. Nothing.

Clicked Speaker to mute and un-mute, message in picture.

Looks like problem not in update, but in base.

I have fixed it.

/etc/init.d/11alsa_raspi gets called at every bootup by /etc/rc.d/rc.services (which gets called by /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit).

11alsa_raspi runs this:

amixer cset numid=3 1

...where the last parameter is 0=auto, 1=analog, 2=hdmi

I don't know why, but 11alsa-raspi is running too soon. I changed it's name to "z_alsa_raspi", which will cause it to run last.

Rebooted, viola, hdmi works. Testing on the Pi3.

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


Type "devx" in the Puppy Package Manager search box.

Note, I haven't uploaded devx-8.1.3-xerus.pet, you will need to install devx-8.1.2.pet and then the 8.1.2-to-8.1.3 devx Service Pack.

That has raised a good point, I should upload the latest devx, not just require it to be done as above. To avoid confusion.

Great work and fun to play with Smile
Don't forget to take some vacation and have fun!

ALERT
Users of RPi s who experience 'issues' might read the following references to power provision:
http://barryk.org/news/?viewDetailed=00464
http://nordicgroup.us/rpi/power/
of which the latter provides a complete exposition of what might occur and how to avoid it/them. Frankly, I would strongly recommend solution 3 (short answers), although this does require precision soldering, to which some correspondents in this Forum strangely seem averse. To them, I suggest they revisit their former skills or to neophytes, they acquire the skill - modern electronics are definitely not going to get bigger!
If you choose solution 10 (long answers) it is better to salvage an old AT PSU which doesn't require the green pin14 (ATX) to be held ON (actually ground ie off). Many of those old AT supplies contain noisy fans, but if one searches deep in the spares box, a few tiny ones with modest OP by old standards/massive by RPi standards may be found without fans. Alternatively, they can be modified internally to throttle their fans. Opening up PSU s is for real experts, (not imagined ones!) - don't be a hero, d.c. kills, it stops your heart and you cannot remove your grasp because your muscles get locked by the one-way flow of current. As always, knowledge is king!

Cheap 1TB USB3 hard drives work on Pi2 and Pi3, powered-hub not required.

Thanks to pakt who informed me about this. the 'config.txt' option "max_usb_current=1" does the trick, though pakt commented that this is the default anyway on the Pi3.

You don't need one of those PiDrives, I am using ordinary 1TB drives:

http://barryk.org/news/?viewDetailed=00465

Warning, you might need to beef up your power supply. Which I have done, gone overboard perhaps, with a 5V at 6A supply -- they are quite cheap though.

Info on the PiDrive:
https://www.raspberrypi.org/blog/meet-314gb-pidrive/

...as pakt informed me, it is actually a 350GB drive, the "314" is from the value of pi ...very funny Rolling Eyes

@BarryK
Thanks for your quick answer.

I have a general question about these puppies based on DEB packages. I should be able to install any apps through the Package Manager, right?
I tried to install apt-get. Well, did not manage to make it work. Here is the message:

If that's something easy to fix, let me know! Thanks

@ Sage & @BK, good reads. Turns out my solution is not recommended, I power BOTH USB-A with a Y cable for my usb harddrive and mini at same time from same power supply ( wall multi tablet charger or dual USB charger with a built in battery ) Haven't had issues. One of the links for polyfuse is a 404 page. But according to links I do not need a mini-usb power if backfeeding via USB-A so I will post this and remove that extra normal connection and see what happens....

Was able to connect my combo blutooth with raspPi3 using a different tiny media distro, so hopefully figure out how it does it. That will remove two wired usb devices. Laughing

I upgraded to 8.1.3.1

Observations:

Sound worked properly.

rtl 8192cu driver worked ---> Samba easy to set up with YASSM

My gimp paint editor package worked

My omx player package didn't work properly since Barry's omxplayer will launch instead. I will try to change the name of app so they won't be confused.

Subject description: Quirky Xerus 8.1.3 - Minor Issues
 

1. I have installed Quirky Xerus 8.1.2 in 16 GB. After installation, it shows two drive i.e MN0P1 & MNop2. mn0p1 shows 75Mb (vfat) and MN0p2 (Ext4) shows 6.8 GB. What happens to balance disk space. What went wrong?. After format it shows 16GB. Image written through windisk manager.

2. Booting on HDMI TV Monitor (21 inch), goes to VGA display. However, I have choosen HDMI option. After reboot, display is corrected.While booting Ist time, it goes VGA Mode. All buttons/settings are not visible within windows. Only with pressing Alt button, I have managed to access the Ok button. ( After googling, I got the solution for moving the contents in the windows).

3. Not detecting 3/4 G dongle.

I think you should run a fix-usb.sh script in order to free the not-used space of the sd card micro>8 Gb. Not tried: does the fix-usb.sh script in the slacko release iso work?
