Current firmware broken?

I've been running the 19th June firmware until just now, all was well. Tried out the omxplayer and read some comments that the newest firmware sorted out the analogue PWM audio problems so I copied over the new /opt/vc and updated the start.elf, loader.bin and bootcode.bin... Now whenever I use omxp...

Re: raspberry pi becomes 'inactive' after period of time

'long periods of time'
How long is that? I've had arch and gentoo running on my pi compiling for upto 5 days straight without restarting it or having it crash.

Re: Warning about emerge update / glibc

Emerging openSSH 5.x fails due to a bug with it not being about to find openSSL files (there's a patch to fix it that's applied that obviously doesn't work) but adding openSSH to the ~arm testing branch gets openSSH 6.0 which compiles fine and doesn't have the getpagesize.c error!

Warning about emerge update / glibc

There's a known problem with glibc2.13-2.14 that is only fixed in glibc2.15 and above which is only available for x86 and x86_64 testing ~ branches. Things like ssh, scp etc. will give errors with getpagesize.c I'm part the way through a full update and will see what happens if openSSH is re-emerged...

Re: Altering available memory for QEMU

A chroot or using qemu whilst compiling with really mess your compilation up, chances are VERY high that it won't work.
Do a cross compile instead and disable all local compiling on the RPi itself.

Re: ALSA giving VCHIQ atomic scheduling error

Using mplayer on both gentoo and arch.
Not sure if they were compiled with the same flags (gentoo mplayer came precompiled with it's own useflags and arch's is using the default package)

Re: How to partition on Arch

Put the card in another linux system or get a liveCD with gparted.
su or sudo su to root and run gparted, select your SD card from the top right (Assuming you've imaged to it already) and you can resize the partitions there by right clicking on them and clicking resize :)

ALSA giving VCHIQ atomic scheduling error

Hi. I've got a RPi with 2 SD cards and 2 USB Drives, one with Arch and another with Gentoo... The gentoo system works great! ALSA support is fine, everythings working... Arch on the other hand will not play nicely with ALSA at all and gives a dreaded 'VCHIQ scheduling while atomic' error. I've updat...
