hey nooby

there is a lot of work being done on wayland to replace X which will allow the gpu to take over the graphics needs that the cpu currently has to handle

expect new releases when wayland is completed

It seems to me that the work being done with Wayland is all to solve a problem that Puppy has already 'solved' by running in RAM and consequently being much faster than Raspbian.

Of course Puppy has problems of it's own. It's not been updated for RPi model B and it can't handle the GPU.

Much appreciated you kept me updated on the Dev och this RPi "toy"

I am too lazy and lack the know how to make anything work
so I have to step back and let others do the actual work Sorry!

But I love the concept of having these small no-fan-silent motherboards.
But I will wait for the Intel ship versions so it is more easy
to get Puppy going instead of using the ARM way to do it that way.

And Intel seems to be at it I've heard. .

-using berryboot to start the boot of puppy linux

I have a troublesome HDMI TV

I found that I had to boot up with this in config.txt file of berryboot

Code:
hdmi_safe=1


________________________________


Then I searched for a different resolution that would work

[code]
hdmi_group=1
hdmi_mode=39

I'm glad you found the answer.

... and I'm pleased to hear I'm not the only person still using alpha4 on RPi/RPi2.

Learning what you can do via careful modification of the config.txt file is a worthwhile exercise.

Unfortunately, Debian have quite recently taken the squeeze armel repository off-line.

I discovered that
Code:

hdmi_drive=2


This forces the monitor to HDMI mode . This helped stabilise my screen.

Version 1.1 of Raspi time date

I made a small change so accidental blank spaces at beginning or end
of time entry is removed.

Uextract works well with alpha4. I was able to open up RPM packages.

Ok I need some initial help Smile, I have a Raspberry Pi 2 Model B and been trying to install this for the past 3 days and nothing, Tried micko's also and nothing. Raspbian boots just fine, but I really dislike the way debian works and Facebook is really slow and draggy on it. Puppy by far would be the best option and I would like to use it.
Raspbian is on a 8GB micro sd (10) was installed using NOOBS
I also have a 16GB micro sd (10) and a 32 GB micro sd (10)
I tried formatting them as FAT 32 and NTFS, LBA Boot
Nothing works, keyboard doesn't light up, Monitor doesn't come on. All the files copy and I tried the configure.txt. must of tried it 50+ times. a bit frustrated Smile
I'm using Barry's img to sd card code
# unxz --stdout raspi-sd-4gb-sap6-5.105.img.xz | dd of=/dev/sdb
# sync
I'm using a hdmi to VGA adapter that works with Raspbian. Other than that its stock Pi.
Any help welcomed. From formatting the format of the micro sd and flags, to conigure.txt editing for the HDMI to VGA. etc I'll try anything.
Thanks
ttuuxxx

hey ttuuxxx

I always extract the image and then

dd bs=4M if=raspi-sd-4gb-sap6-5.105.img of=/dev/sdb

sync
sync

never fails me so may be worth a try

if you can get hold of the rpi2, MUCH quicker, a delight and it's the same money

Smile

ps: fat32 formatted
