#1 Re: ARM Builds » Which Raspberry Pi ? » 2022-10-06 16:20:28

Go to aliexpress.com and search for "RK3288" (ASUS Firefly) or "RK3399" for OrangePi4. Both have bad support (armbian at its best). And you can wonder who would be willing to pay €€€ for these ...

I uploaded a new chimaera image for RaspberryPi: https://dev1galaxy.org/viewtopic.php?pid=30913#p30913 - version with TDE will come in some days.

I just uploaded a new chimaera image for RaspberryPi 3A+ / 3B+ / Rpi400. This is a minimal image. It fits fine on a 4GB SD-Card. WiringPi is included, as are the special programs from raspberrypi.org (raspistill, raspi-config ...) - just the right thing to get you started.

#6 Re: Devuan » Debian has fallen. What now? » 2021-07-28 13:32:01

another of my proposal was make the trinity desktop the default in devuan but as aways rejected and without interes

The reson given was that the TDE build sould run iside the devuan buildbot environment. As there is not enough manpower to do this (and from the TDE side there's no need to do this) it will not happen in the "near" future.

That is a shame,  trinity desktop looks better visually then kde or gnome in my opinion...

Definitly. But it's just 5 lines to install TDE on devuan smile

#7 Re: Devuan » Chimaera First Impressions » 2021-07-28 13:19:11

You should get a RPi 3 and try to get chimera running. Fun guaranteed smile

#8 Re: Devuan Derivatives » An example of how Trinity Desktop Env (TDE) can look on Devuan ASCII » 2021-07-26 21:50:36

Traditional? Is there an other approach? I mean, ok, pure WMs like fvwm or tiling WMs are different ... but DEs? All "modern" DEs simply fall flat when it comes to configurability.

I think they care a lot. It's just they care for the wrong reason.

#11 Re: Devuan Derivatives » ISO to test: Devuan + Exegnulinux + LinuxCNC + stuff remaster » 2021-07-19 10:43:54

Sorry, due to problems with the LinuxCNC project I removed the images. When I find some spare time I'll upload new Chimaera+TDE images - but without LinuxCNC.

#13 Re: Desktop and Multimedia » Chromium + ALSA + jitzsi: mic problem after update » 2021-06-08 15:28:04

That makes live easier, thank you!

Now I have :

# /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf
options snd_usb_audio index=0
options snd_hda_intel index=3,2,1 enable=0,0,1

This makes the soundblaster (3rd card) the soundcard with index #1 and hides the other 2 builtin cards. I still have to assign uniq indizes to the individual cards, otherwise #0 is gone again.

# cat /proc/asound/cards
 0 [CinemaTM       ]: USB-Audio - Microsoft® LifeCam Cinema(TM)
                      Microsoft Microsoft® LifeCam Cinema(TM) at usb-0000:00:1d.0-1.7, high speed
 1 [Creative       ]: HDA-Intel - HDA Creative
                      HDA Creative at 0xf3200000 irq 16

The fun part of that: with only 2 cards left, chromium can handle exact one input source per card correctly, be it card#0 or card#1. Oh my ... roll

#14 Re: Desktop and Multimedia » Chromium + ALSA + jitzsi: mic problem after update » 2021-06-08 13:38:18

Ok, not solved, but there's a workaround for that piece of crap aka chromium:

Make sure the webcam is plugged in at boottime, otherwise alsa card enumeration will assign #0 to some other card. Then make snd_usb_audio card#0 and all other cards "not the default":

# /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf
options snd_usb_audio index=0
options snd_hda_intel index=-1

Then reboot and observe:

$ cat /proc/asound/cards
 0 [CinemaTM       ]: USB-Audio - Microsoft® LifeCam Cinema(TM)
                      Microsoft Microsoft® LifeCam Cinema(TM) at usb-0000:00:1d.0-1.8, high speed
 1 [MID            ]: HDA-Intel - HDA Intel MID

 2 [NVidia         ]: HDA-Intel - HDA NVidia
                      HDA NVidia at 0xf3000000 irq 17
 3 [Creative       ]: HDA-Intel - HDA Creative
                      HDA Creative at 0xf3200000 irq 16

Now chromium https://meet.jit.si/just-a-room]https:/ … ust-a-room can be started. The preselected mic is still the first input source of the internal soundcard, but by some miracle the usb mic is now selectable and working - at least one of the 12 virtual mics of the single usb mic, usally the second. And what a surprise: the usb mic stays #0 if it's unplugged/replugged.

Now the next question: isn't there a way to reserve #0 for snd_usb_audio, regardless if it's present or not? Assinging a fixed index to snd_hda_intel does not work, as all 3 internal cards are served by that module.

EDIT: Using options snd_hda_intel index=1,2,3 will reserve card #0 for the 4th soundcard or snd_usb_audio - whatever comes first. You might call that a mатрёшка workaround smile

#15 Re: Desktop and Multimedia » Chromium + ALSA + jitzsi: mic problem after update » 2021-06-07 16:12:20

I prefer not to build my own kernel - the deb-src for 5.10.28 is gone, as are kernel + headers --> nvidia drivers will not be happy ... and most likely everything with alsa in its name needs to be reverted and rebuilt. Sonds like a doomsday plan to me hmm

#16 Re: Desktop and Multimedia » Chromium + ALSA + jitzsi: mic problem after update » 2021-06-07 11:59:20

Nop, does not work. linux-headers-5.10.0-0.bpo.5-amd64=5.10.24-1~bpo10+1 would like linux-compiler-gcc-8-x86, which is not available on chimera. Adding beowulf repositories and trying to install that kernel+header results in apt suggesting to kill my system.

Isn't there an archive where I can get the older kernel+headers?

#17 Re: Desktop and Multimedia » Chromium + ALSA + jitzsi: mic problem after update » 2021-06-07 10:31:54

apparmor is not installed, but libapparmor1 - it's pulled in by dbus.

Any idea where I can get the older kernel and headers? I can repackage the kernel from my other machine, but I did not install the headers there (and I need them for nvidia)

#18 Re: Desktop and Multimedia » Chromium + ALSA + jitzsi: mic problem after update » 2021-06-07 08:58:25

Definitly. To be more precise: a clone of users homedirectory running on a devuan that was not upgraded (Kernelpackage 5.10.0-6-amd64 and chromium 89) does not show this problem. Chromium 89 + 5.10.0-7 alsow shows this problem.

#19 Re: Desktop and Multimedia » Chromium + ALSA + jitzsi: mic problem after update » 2021-06-07 08:05:00

If that were a problem, chromium could not access card#0, either. Nor could audacity, which works like expected. Killing kmix does not make any difference (well, the device is not accessed by anything then).

#20 Re: Desktop and Multimedia » Chromium + ALSA + jitzsi: mic problem after update » 2021-06-07 07:08:44

My user is in group audio, all sound devices are accessable. Otherwise audacity would not work (see my first post):

#21 Re: Desktop and Multimedia » Chromium + ALSA + jitzsi: mic problem after update » 2021-06-07 04:54:33

Does not change anything.

Maybe I did not make myself clear: The problem is not changing the default sound card. The problem is, that chromium cannnot access any mic other than the ones on card#0 (see the error messages in my first posting).

#22 Re: Desktop and Multimedia » Chromium + ALSA + jitzsi: mic problem after update » 2021-06-06 13:12:48

No pulseaudio here.

Sorry, what do you expect alamixer to do for me in this context? It changes volume, well, bright. And now?

I ran into this problem 2 days ago that I have still not solved: I use meet.jits.si for video calls. After the last dist-upgrade 2 days ago chromium is only able to use the analog mic on card#0 (onboard sound, analog mic).

"CinemaTM" is a usb webcam with mic. Chromium should use this as input source. Audacity can record from this and all other devices. But chromium throws these errors and can only use card#0 als input source:
