Re: Ubuntu Mate with Raspbian kernel: New Firefox 55.0.1 crashes on startup

A vine can wither through neglect. It can also wither because some vandal pours glyphosate on it.

Ubuntu is refocusing its business and IoT is one of the things it sees as the future of the business. It's madness if the raspberry pi foundation doesn't take advantage of this.

Re: Ubuntu Mate with Raspbian kernel: New Firefox 55.0.1 crashes on startup

Ubuntu-Mate uses the same kernel as Raspbian. It doesn´t use the ubuntu kernels, it is 32 bit only, and doesn´t use u-boot. Whilst I accept that a query about Firefox would be an appropriate question for the u-m forum, it certainly is not an appropriate place for questions about ubuntu core, server ...

This forum isn´t particularly friendly. If your intention is to drive ubuntu users away, then it is working.

+1 for a Ubuntu sub forum. Mate is just one flavour of Ubuntu and their forum is loathsome (stuck in the past).

Re: Packaging customized kernel modules and DT overlays

https://github.com/raspberrypi/linux/issues ? I don't think force loading a compiled module is a good idea. The rpi kernels can take big jumps in version numbers and you don't know what has changed. I don't know a lot about raspbian. Are there different kernels in raspbian that are more like the deb...

Re: Packaging customized kernel modules and DT overlays

Normally distributions (like Ubuntu etc) package the header files of the kernels. Then you can use dkms to automatically compile your module. This can be packaged up easily for other users to then use. It is how proprietary drivers work.

I thought there was some talk of using Compton in raspbian? The xorg log should give the colour depth (can be found in /var/log).

On vc4 you correct monitor problems with the video= kernel command line parameter. It works like other KMS (and framebuffer) drivers.

Re: Mesa driver much slower on Stretch than on Jessie

Yeah? and topic is about Raspbian.
Jeez, this is a picky forum. I dont use raspian so I cant give a value on that.

Usually a reason for a low number is it is trying to sync to vblanc?

Has the xorg colour depth changed? That can have a big impact.

Are you now using a compositor?

Re: Lubuntu live iso

Thanks procount you did a better job of explaining it than I did! Just a couple of things though: the link is for pi 3 only. If you want to install then use the command I gave. There is a bit of manual moving of files needed to setup the bootloader partition. I'll explain if anyone gets to that point.

Re: Lubuntu live iso

Windows 8 and 10 has native mounting of ISO files. Pretty sure mac os x had had the ability for ages. Linux certainly does. So I'm not sure what the problem is? If you are still using windows 7 or vista then just go for option b. Some of the USB flash writing tools may work too, but it depends how t...

Re: Lubuntu live iso

If it helps, think of an iso file like a zip file. It's just a convenient way of moving a number of files together. The debian installer/live build packages can work with the unextracted iso file so that is why I have used it. There is nothing complicated here. You either: a) extract the contents of...

Unless the card is 64GB or greater, in which case the pre-format is exFAT and unusable on a Pi. I don't know anything about exFAT, but it is worth saying that of course the bootloaders have to be on a partition that is readable from a pi. Once the kernel/initramfs is loaded, then you are in the lin...

Unless you are selling preformated SDcards the only way to put an image on an SD that i know of is to format it It's not an image. That's the whole point. You stick the iso file on any old existing partition and you boot it into a fully working system. SD cards come pre formatted, so nope you do no...

I'm not near a pi at the moment, but you can certainly adjust things with the video= kernel boot parameter. See https://ubuntu-mate.community/t/screen- ... r/11202/13 for a generic discussion.
