Hi Barry, great you are doing some more stuff on the Raspberry Pi, Quirky / puppy is so much better for it for my needs than any other distro.

If you're having problems with widgets appearing in the reverse order

then read this....

Interesting, mac needs a patch too. I consulted with jamesbond, and we came up with a patch that fixes aarch64:

To BarryK

I read in your blog that you are having compiling problems.
Probably not enough RAM.
There are ways to adjust RAM

https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentation/configuration/config-txt/memory.md


You are having power problems. I had the same problems getting my
raspberry pi3 set up. However ever since I started using
hdmi_safe=1 in my config.txt file it has been very solid. No low power warnings.
The screen size is small but that doesn't matter.
The video buffer is kept in RAM so a small screen size makes sense.


Quote:
hdmi_safe Use "safe mode" settings to try to boot with maximum hdmi compatibility. This is the same as the combination of: hdmi_force_hotplug=1, hdmi_ignore_edid=0xa5000080, config_hdmi_boost=4, hdmi_group=2, hdmi_mode=4, disable_overscan=0, overscan_left=24, overscan_right=24, overscan_top=24, overscan_bottom=24

hdmi_safe=1


There is a warning by some experts to NOT use swap memory.
Wears out chip!!!

Hi ttuuxxx,
That Android box looks great!

I have a 4-port usb3 hub that is independently switchable, and that is very useful. It isn't a powered hub, so limited what I can run through it.

Quirky Linux is retired, doubt whether there will be another release for the Pi.

More recently, I created an EasyOS build for the Pi:

http://bkhome.org/news/201809/easyos-0963-64-bit-on-raspberry-pi.html

The image is for booting on the Pi only. It could be hacked to boot on other boards. I own a Rock64 board, and it has been on my to-do list to build EasyOS for it.
