I can get this to boot.

get a VFS:Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(1,0)

I had never booted my rpi3, so I dumped Raspbian on this card, and the system booted fine.

Hi Béla,

   I can confirm that all my previously mentioned WiFi dongles now work with this beta version.

   I can confirm that the image boots on the following RPi's: A/B/B+/2B. It doesn't boot on a Zero.
 
   I can confirm that all the dmesg lines
Code: [Select]
disagrees about version of symbol module_layouthave now gone on all booting RPi's.
 
HTH

Hi Béla,

    Can I request the Kernel sources etc for 4.1.20, I need them to build a Kernel module for a WiFi dongle I have, which uses the 8192eu chipset.

Thanks
    Jon

Hi Jon

thanks for feedback. Regarding Zero boot issue, edit config.txt and change [PI1] to [PI0]. Just guessing, it may help.

Hi Béla,

    Using [PI0] works  :). I also moved the cmdline cmdline.txt line after [ALL], removing it from the other entries, and that works as well.

Thanks

I had never booted my rpi3, so I dumped Raspbian on this card, and the system booted fine.

This was supposed to say "can't"   I did check that we are using the same sdcard driver(default).   And I did try the other dtoverlays for selecting a different driver.   I normally don't use 32G UHS-1 cards for my pis, but I used up all my smaller/slower cards.    I'll try a different card tonight.

jncl.....did you test on a PI3?

Hi Béla,

I've just installed piCore7.1beta3 as a squeezelite player using my tutorial, and everything works perfectly!
The previous WiFi problems with beta2 are gone.

Thanx!  8)

Bela,

I downloaded the latest image and burned......still won't boot on a rpi3.   I can't believe I missed this, I had looked at it 10 times last night.    This is the config.txt

Code: [Select]
# For more options and information see
# http://www.raspberrypi.org/documentation/configuration/config-txt.md
# Some settings may impact device functionality. See link above for details

[PI0]
initramfs 7.1beta3.gz followkernel
kernel kernel4120.img

[PI1]
initramfs 7.1beta3.gz followkernel
kernel kernel4120.img

[PI2]
initramfs 7.1beta3v7.gz followkernel
kernel kernel4120v7.img

[PI3]
initramfs 7.1beta2v7.gz followkernel
kernel kernel4120v7.img

The initramfs for the PI3 is wrong.    Fixed and it boots on a pi3.....now checking the rest.


Edit: Buitin wifi connects.....   iperf3 shows about 25Mbit transfer rate, which seems about par for the coarse for this broadcomm chipset/driver.
