TCB Talk / Re: powering off a TCL computer

Hi cast-fish
Here is a script that will check the status of the monitor every 30 seconds. Within 30 seconds of the monitor going blank the computer
will execute the  shutdown  command.
Create a file called  AutoOff.sh
Code: [Select]
#!/bin/sh
# Check if screen is off every DELAY seconds
DELAY=30

# Loop until the screen is off
while `xset -q | grep -q "Monitor is On"`
do
sleep $DELAY
done

# Shut down the computer
sudo poweroff
If you place it in  /home/tc/.local/bin/  it will be part of your backup and added to the path.
Create a file in  /home/tc/.X.d  containing
Code: [Select]
AutoOff.sh &This will automatically start the script once the desktop appears.

Hi Steen and Meo

situation is not so bad with 3.14.y as you say. Branch was created 8 month ago, but there are updated which are one month old only.

You are right, kernel development effort is focusing on Raspbian stable 3.12.y kernel and it is the most advenced in terms of Raspberry, while 3.17.y and 3.18.y are experimentals for example used to develop device tree or other features, but much behind on audio SoC support for example or has issues with wifi device support. Now as I see 3.17.y/3.18.y can't be used as a stable kernel in near future for us. We can make a decision to be conservative and use the mainstream Raspberry kernel, 3.12.y. I will make a 3.12.35 kernel and see how it goes.

Hi bmarkus!

Thanks for your incredible work on piCore! Since there has been a lot of laboring with different kernels lately, I did a checkup myself and I think "sbp" is right on this one. First a stable kernel that is and has been used for quite some time and then the rest of the software needed for the piCore.

Keep up the good work bmarkus,
meo

Hi Belá

I have tested both my wifi adaptors (Edimax (realtek) and radlink) and both are working fine with your new beta (3.14.23 kernel).

The only thing which is bothering me with this kernel is:
It seems not to be maintained by the raspberry developers. The last update in the 3.14.y kernel was 8 months ago whereas the current stable kernel (3.12.y) was updated 23 hours ago.

The 3.14.y kernel is somehow not used anymore at the raspberry github, where focus for the moment is on 3.12.y (stable) or on the two development branches 3.17.y (25 days ago) or 3.18.y (2 days ago).

So if we are not going to use a development branch then why not choose a stable kernel that is maintained at the moment (3.12.y)?

Curaga,

what is the timing amount on netnomads code?

when does it actually suspend?

also HOW is that code starting off?....automatically at boot?...

i am unsure how to do that....

I see.  I do think Xorg-7.7 should not be a run-time dependancy for anything that does not actually require it, but as you pointed out, the dev environment is temporary, so that really doesn't matter.  As you say, it just comes down to personal preference.
I aim for the most minimal desktop possible for performance reasons, and for control, and like to keep things simple, transparent, and hackable - which is why I love Tiny Core :-)
Thanks to everyone here for the fantastic work that has been done developing Tiny Core, and especially the Corepure64 project.

Sound in the browser also doesn't work. Tested YouTube with minefield21.tcz. Again, used to work in TC 5.x.

mpg123 does not work, saying that it is unable to load any output module, although I installed alsa prior to mpg123's installation, which used to work in TC 5.x and 4.x.

No, the X server's screen saver does not spawn or close any process, nor can it send an event for you to wait for, it has no code for that. Try netnomad's solution.
