Re: Forum Shuffle

I've never understood the 'other' OS sub-forum. Surely I'm not the only person who took a long time to realise that there was a random section of posts at the bottom of the page? I've also never understood what goes in General Discussion, Advanced, Beginners, Troubleshooting. It would be better if t...

Re: Raspberry Pi 3 - Ubuntu Server - TVHeadend - MP2G2 License

Ubuntu server's config.txt is at /boot/firmware/config.txt. The boot partition is mounted at /boot/firmware.

To speed up boot time remove the cloudimage packages.

Re: Ubuntu image for the new Raspberry Pi 3 B+

Is there another file I have to copy in order to get the camera working with the ubuntu mate image? Maybe some files from /lib/firmware? You are stalling at the rainbow screen, so the kernel hasn't yet been loaded. Maybe a mismatch between the different bootloader files? I don't have a camera, I'm ...

I don't mind raspbian sticking to armhf. I do mind that the use of other distros (armhf and arm64) is actively discouraged by members of the Pi team and repeated by others on this forum. As somebody who has spent a little bit of time trying to help people use other distros it is extremely annoying. ...

There is little point since you can easily adapt the official pi 2 image - https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ARM/RaspberryPi#Booting_the_official_Pi_2_image_on_the_Pi_3B.2F3B.2B- I uploaded 32 bit and 64 bit installers for xubuntu 18.04 - https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=56&t=209763 .

Re: Looking for a Lubuntu 18.04 LTS image for the new RPi3B+

Apart from Gentoo it seems to be experts only at the moment for Aarch64. I'm not sure where this idea that you have to be an expert to use aarch64 has come from. It's been possible to do this in debian, Ubuntu, open suse etc for ages. For example, I made a 64 bit lubuntu ISO back in august of last ...

What device tree blob does the pi 2 v 1.2 use? Looking at https://github.com/raspberrypi/linux/tr ... s/broadcom there doesn't seem to be a device tree for the pi 2? Yet it is arm64 capable too?

A quicker way would be: sudo apt update sudo apt install raspberrypi-bootloader raspberrypi-kernel Somebody pointed out on the mate forums that this doesn't work. I don't use Ubuntu mate, but I was absolutely convinced that they used the same repos as raspbian for these packages. Apparently they do...

If you are using a pi 2/3 then you could just use pure debian. It might be easier than recompiling gtk/mesa/etc

Without detailed instructions is too advanced for me, unfortunately.
Kvm is pretty advanced stuff. Why exactly do you need it? This might seem harsh, but I can't help but think at the end of this, you are going to post "how do I use kvm?".

Re: £50 reward: 64-bit Linux *any distro* on RPi3B+ with a KVM-enabled kernel!

Only on your old lubuntu image without kvm enabled. Then it should work on a more modern distro. 17.04 isn't supported anymore that's why it fails to find packages. You would have to manually download and install them from Launchpad.net. I also don't know whether 17.04 contains pi related kvm patch...
