Rip little 2.4 install.  Final 8 came out today and updated.   Boots up but my apache and php no longer works.


Fixed with

Sudo apt-get -f install
Sudo apt-get autoremove

Php working.  Just noticed though that samba not working - its asking for a password!

I use your patch for i2s output actually in my pcb and works very well. Please if you try input comments your progres.

I modified I2S driver for capture support. Kernel source: https://github.com/nikkov/linux-sunxi.
Also realized hi-res SPDIF playback support. SPDIF capture works, but sometimes happens channels swapping.

Great job! ;) Maybe just push it upstream to Dan's repo, where patches come together.

Great job nikkov!

Today We will test the new I2S driver.

Thank you very much for your work.

Hi slovenia:
installed your latest cubietruck debian image 3.6 wheezy 3.4.107
I would like to install a window manager lighter than openbox. Is there a fluxbox or FLWM in the repo?
BTW how can I look into the current repo which is listed in your /etc/apt/sources.lst  >? To find out which deb files are available.
Which debian repo are you exacly using? (armel, armf or else?)

I love your distri

In the latest version of your image, once one decides to move the installation to Nand, the vmlinuz kernel gets converted to uImage again. 
How does this work with future kernel upgrades, since the .deb upgrade packages only provide the vmlinuz.

Of course I can make up a workaround, no problem, but I was just wondering if this is still in development or just something you overlooked ?

By the way I'm still a big fan of your distro, I have a lot of cubies in a cluster running it (and the respective kernel versions) without a flaw, for more than a year already :)


Thanks for bringing this up! We need to add some code to kernel post install script to handle this. I think this would be the best way?

If you / any1 got some spare time to code  :P and make few live tests ... I have other urgent / important fixes to do before this  :-\ so it will take a while ... On the other hand there is a new 3.4.107 kernel out and it would be nice to implement this with it  :P


I'm a little bit confused now. How are kernel updates supposed to work in the future? Are they already working with the current situation?

I'm asking because if I install you latest release (v3.6 / 29.4.2015), will I be able to do future kernel updates via the .debs? (and a real stupid question: how is it actually done?) I actually can't contribute and feel quite lost in this question.

ps.: another stupid question (sorry!): Is it correct that other updates (security/other software) are available through ppas (i.e. apt-get update / upgrade)?

Yes, that's the idea and it suppose to work well for a while. If not, than we got a bug to be fixed. First one (not fixed yet) is if you install your system to NAND than you need to manually convert the kernel file. (zImage to uImage)

Yes, all other packets/software are updated trough apt-get, actually security updates should be done automatic.

Next step is to put kernel and my scripts updates under apt-get update scenario. They are prepared for such and they might just work out of the box.

Ah I understand, I guess its NAND specific or does this issue also arise when installing to SATA? Maybe this and the how to do a kernel update could be added to your FAQ on your website? I can imagine there are others who might find this useful info.

Now I understand :) Thanks for clarification! I love this scenario. It's awesome you've been seeing the big picture all along!

NAND only. It's in the FAQ for few days now:

Hi slovenia,

Could you please provide a driver for image with 3.4.107 kernel version for Asix ax88179_178a USB 3.0 adaptor;
The source for the driver can be found at: http://www.asix.com.tw/products.php?op=pItemdetail&PItemID=131;71;112
This driver needs kernel headers in order to build it.

Kernel headers are within the image. Have you try to build it?

Usually all you need is to declare ARCH=arm ... the rest is default.

Hi, I didn't try as i thought that the image did not contain the headers. I will try now. Thank you.

***Update*** worked like a charm. Thank you

Hello,
I tried to install the latest version (3.8 wheezy) but does not boot.
Why?

Back to the last that I had downloaded (2.8).

why not allow download previous versions of the 3.8?

Thanks

There was a problem with u-boot in recent build. Already fixed but images needs to be re-compiled.

There is also a link just below main download.

Hello.
I'm installed image Cubietruck_Debian_3.6_wheezy_3.19.6 for my Cubietruck.
Now I'm trying to view a CPU freq options, but it seems that it is not work:

#cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/*/cpufreq/scaling_cur_freq
cat: /sys/devices/system/cpu/*/cpufreq/scaling_cur_freq: No such file or directory

# /etc/init.d/cpufrequtils restart
[ ok ] CPUFreq Utilities: Setting interactive CPUFreq governor...disabled, governor not available...done.

Does is missing on this image? What is the best current image for cubietruck for headless server I can use (build a router)?

Thanks.
