You can change the device tree parameters in config.txt

Code: [Select]
sudo mount /mnt/mmcblk0p1
sudo nano /mnt/mmcblk0p1/config.txt

dtparam=act_led_trigger=heartbeat

Finally got round to updating to piCore64-15.x beta.

Ref: http://forum.tinycorelinux.net/index.php/topic,26511.msg170886.html#msg170886

I don't see the kernel config, did we enable automatic bigger console fonts - without anything in cmdline.txt I still get 3840x2160?

It’s enabled, but not sure how the kernel picks the font.  You can load the configs kernel module to see the config.

All I see for fonts is this:
Code: [Select]
CONFIG_FONT_SUPPORT=y
# CONFIG_FONTS is not set
CONFIG_FONT_8x8=y
CONFIG_FONT_8x16=y

..wouldn't we need CONFIG_FONT_TER16x32=y?

Booting with fbcon=font:TER16x32 gets me 3840x2160 and a minuscule font.

Booting with video=HDMI-A-1:1920x1080M@60 gets me 1920x1080 and a readable font.

..so I'd say TER16x32 is not available to the kernel.

Which device/kernel are you using.  With Raspi, configs are all managed with defconfigs.  Perhaps I forgot to cherry pick a commit from 6.1.y to 6.6.y

Patch was applied, a dependency is missing for extra fonts.   I'll have to rebuild kernels.   Some pretty significant pi5 changes anyway.

Are you using alsa or pulseaudio?

What steps are you taking to get HDMI sound working?

Alsa

Read the Forum  and tried
"
tc@box:~$ speaker-test -Ddefault:1 -c2 -t wav -l1

speaker-test 1.2.9

Playback device is default:1
Stream parameters are 48000Hz, S16_LE, 2 channels
WAV file(s)
ALSA lib conf.c:5671:(snd_config_expand) Unknown parameters 1
ALSA lib pcm.c:2666:(snd_pcm_open_noupdate) Unknown PCM default:1
Playback open error: -22,Invalid argument
tc@box:~$

Tried  to edit

# default
pcm.!default {
   type plug
   slave.pcm "hw:0,0"
}

etc.
USB Sound card is in use now ( as temporary solution ).

"Read the forum" doesn't tell us anything.

A pi400 has several different audio configurations, it all depends on what you put in your config.txt file.   We also need to know what extensions you have loaded.   Also check dmesg to see if there are any audio related errors.

I just tried with Xorg-3d:
Code: [Select]
speaker-test -D sysdefault:CARD=vc4hdmi0 -c2 -t wav -l1

aplay -D sysdefault:CARD=vc4hdmi0 /usr/local/share/sounds/alsa/Front_Center.wav

aplay -l
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****

  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
  Subdevice #1: subdevice #1
  Subdevice #2: subdevice #2
  Subdevice #3: subdevice #3

  Subdevice #5: subdevice #5

  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
..works fine.

Following the above, running pavucontrol, which starts the dbus daemon and pulseaudio, xmms-pulse played music to the hdmi output without problems.

That is correct - I'll take a look.

I have to remind to check the config.txt file to modify the device tree:
