Re: Getting SDIO working

After leaving, waiting a few hours and coming back. Somehow it started working without touching anything.

Getting SDIO working

I recently bought an ESP8266 SDIO wifi adapter to use with the Pi. I've been following the instructions at https://hackaday.io/project/8678/instructions but I've been unable to get the two devices to communicate. I'm using a RPi Model B (Not +), with the 26 pin GPIO header. The only line in my confi...

Re: Ubuntu 9.04 Beta Image

Sorry for reviving an old post, but it appears I'm not the first one. Whatever happened to this image? I'm trying to make some older code run on the RPI but having troubles with older kernels/distros. Would love to try this 9.04 image if you still have it. Thanks! Matt I haven't logged in for about ...

New to this, can I split a SPI connection?

Hello all, I've recently got back into using the Pi after a year or so, and have decided to add a small touch screen. I've found a screen on ebay I'd like to buy. It has the connections I need for displaying the image, detecting touch and also an SD Card reader. Only problem being, all three of thes...

Re: entire file system on usb drive

If cmdline.txt in /boot is edited to say root=/dev/sda (or whichever your drive is labeled as) The usb drive will automatically be mounted at / then the boot will start. It shouldnt be mounted anywhere else. (I could be wrong but I have booted off a USB before) I hope this answers your question.

Re: Ubuntu 9.04 Beta Image

I plan to upload just a tarball that can just be untared onto the usb (or in this case you could overwrite the ext4 partition of the SD) that will allow you to use the whole drive without expanding it. Its being uploaded now. Also any news from the people who have downloaded it? It it all working?

Re: Ubuntu 9.04 Beta Image

And anyways, some software is only avaliable for ubuntu!!! If I install this software what repository do I have to point to which has ARMv6 compiled softwa...

Re: Ubuntu 9.04 Beta Image

Just thought I'd mention Thanks to my Friend James (different james from jamesh) for letting me borrow his Pi while I tested the Image. Even though I didn't get a working build while I borrowed it. He also was the one who checked that it booted on the Pi after I had it working in QEMU. Thanks James ...

Re: Ubuntu 9.04 Beta Image

The kernel is still the default one from raspbian. I found the part i learnt most from was failling with ubuntu 9.10.

EDIT: Yay it has a download, if the person who downloaded could post back about how it went, that would be great

Re: Ubuntu 9.04 Beta Image

It really only was for me to learn more about the linux OS. I just thought someone might prefer to use it over debian if they were used to ubuntu.

Re: Ubuntu 9.04 Beta Image

Commendable effort, but to what end? Support for this OS version ended in 2010, whereas Raspbian with LXDE, as pointed out above is very close (functionality wise, and DNA wise) to Ubuntu (both have their roots in Debian), and Raspbian is very well supported. A supported version of Ubuntu would be ...

Re: how do you get ubuntu on pi

The Foundation had originally intended to use Ubuntu and, IIRC, had some portion of Ubuntu 9.0.4 running on some pre-production boards, but never made it available. Ubuntu 9.0.4 is the last distribution to support ARM v6 microprocessors as used on the Pi and the Foundation moved to Debian when the ...

I dont acctually own a pi but it works with the arm1176 cpu in qemu and i gave a copy to a friend that said it booted on their Pi. The image is for a USB. This means it does not contain the ke...

I am currently using the default rpi kernel (Or is that not supported by Karmic?) The error comes from mountall but then mount has an error as well.
