Mike,

what I told:

Don't ask. Disable and try.

TC is all about learning and experimenting. What is better than to get hands on knowledge than reading books? At the end of the day you have to try anyhow to see wheter it helps or not.

Corepure64 / Re: [REOPENED] Lm-sensors on Corepure64 5.1

Boot Pure64 5.2
tce-load -wi compiletc squashfs-tools perl5 hwmon-3.8.10-tinycore64
...the rest of the process in identical...

You should be using hwmon-3.8.13-tinycore64 with corepure64-5.2 - it's maybe better to use "tce-load -i hwmon-KERNEL"

Question: Did you watch videos with minefield succesfully?

I wish I could remember <sheepish grin>.

Quote
I wonder that uninstalling minefield was a problem. Using the Apps tool an extension is marked for deletion and all of its dependencies that aren't needed by anything else will also be removed.

When you're not used to it, it doesn't seem so easy. I realize that' s the way it's supposed to work, but somehow it didn't seem to do that. Maybe I did something wrong. I don't know. I can no longer remember.

If you remember details of what happened when uninstalling minefield and you post it, it could maybe help solve your problem.

I'm afraid my memory of that unpleasant episode is gone. At my age (I'm 70), you tend to quickly forget everything that wasn't fun.

Cheers.

zswap always gets enabled at boot if not explicitely disabled by the  nozswap  boot code.
You can safely add the  nozswap  to your boot loader and remove it to 're-enable' zswap.

Instead of editing your bootloaders config file, you can also just press TAB (for syslinux, extlinux, etc.) in the boot menu and edit the boot parameters without saving it to the config file.

I was thinking of putting nozswap into extlinux.conf to see if that would improve video playing in my browser. Then I thought: suppose it doesn't and I want to re-activate zswap? Does removing nozswap from extlinux.conf re-create the zswap file? If not, how will I do that?

In other words, better to ask than to get into a bunch of trouble.

Cheers!

Hi Mike7,

I installed chromium-browser.tcz and it works fine for most websites. But it crashes when trying to watch videos on Youtube and elsewhere.

Uninstalling extensions still worries me. I tried minefield before chromium and I had a hard time uninstalling it. I still don't know if I got rid of all its dependencies.

Question: Did you watch videos with minefield succesfully?

I wonder that uninstalling minefield was a problem. Using the Apps tool an extension is marked for deletion and all of its dependencies that aren't needed by anything else will also be removed. After rebooting then all is gone.

Raspberry Pi / Re: Building landing wheels while in flight
« Last post by Paul_123 on Today at 12:52:58 PM »
Getting the binary with wget was no problem.  I could also see where to put things like the init.d script.  In working on the deps, I was able to see alsa.tcz, flac.tca, labmad.tca and libvorbix.tcz to satisfy most of the dependancies.  From Steen's picoreplayer image, it seemed that libffmpeg, libfaad, libsoxr and libmad are also required.  I couldn't find them in tce.  How do you know they are required and how did you find them?

We know the dependencies base on the compile options.   If you run the squeezelite -help and it will show you the compile time options.

I think I'm slowly understanding the convolutions to restore squash images back on loop devices for the persistence.  I can see the uphill climb to get squeezelite working.  What did your environment look like when you first put this pack together?  Did you have a working directory that held all the files before rolling up the tcz?  Did you do a "squeezelite-get" script or any of the build scripts for the package?

I've only built a few extensions, so I have always done it manually.    And yes, I just keep a working directory.

I just noticed that bmarkus posted about the in situ update of the firmware and kernel - have you tried it?

All there is public at this point is a tarball of the boot partition......but it does not update kernel modules that are in extensions.   SO it is not yet ready for a test.    The theory of a tarball of the boot partition is fine, as that is how I update anyway.

Again, you have to download the new kernel modules extensions first, before update the kernel and reboot.

OK I fund the extension. It is strange the SD Host controller is recognized.
"01:06.0 SD Host controller: C-guys, Inc. CG200 Dual SD/SDIO Host contoller device (rev 09)"

When I use "modprobe sdhci" in dmesg I see continually
 
mmc0: Reset 0x2 never completed.
mmc0: Reset 0x4 never completed.

The same thing for mmc1.

What that mean?
Way in ubuntu I see

mmc0: SDHCI at 0xfe8ffc00 irq 20 DMA
mmc1: SDHCI at 0xfe8ff800 irq 20 DMA

What generate this proable? It's the sdhci driver or sdhci-pci driver ?

How can I be helpful/useful in this objective?  (and "stay out of the way" is a viable answer)

Hi Randy - I will be very happy if you would help with this development of piCorePlayer.

I just noticed that bmarkus posted about the in situ update of the firmware and kernel - have you tried it?

I really don't know what would be the best way to go - maybe take it step by step.

First incorporate the kernel and firmware update by bmarksu into piCorePlayer - an Update button on the "Main" web-page.
Then maybe do a "crude and dirty" update of piCorePlayer and all its dependencies, by simply downloading a new TCE directory (which contain all the tcz packages , OliWeb and piCorePlayer web-pages)

When we have this working, start to make the individual tcz packages in order to do the update the "proper" way?
