#1 Re: Documentation » [SOLVED] Action when power button is pressed » 2023-09-08 15:54:54

/etc/elogind/logind.conf has an entry:
I uncommented the line and changed it to:

The elogind daemon looks after various things including users logging in and out, but also covers powering up and down.
Pressing the power button on a PC or the Power key on a laptop signals to the kernel and elogind handles it in whatever manner
you prefer. The default setting is to shutdown immediately, logging off any users. As my organ hides the power button and replaces
it with a relay, I have opted to avoid any unintended shutdowns by ignoring them.

I'm currently building a digital organ using Devuan as the OS. I have arranged for the PC to be remotely powered on by wiring the front panel switch leads to a relay, activated by an Arduino. It works fine, but if the relay is activated a second time the PC immediately goes into shutdown. I've found references to using ACPID on Debian, and set that up, but it doesn't make any difference. How is the power button handled by Devuan?

Tried running without jack to test the basic alsa stuff. That works, but only to the internal speakers. Plugging in headphones has no effect - sound still from speakers.
All works fine with an external USB card.

Problem still present with jackd2 (jackdbus). Seems to be OK with an external USB sound card.
aplay -l reports device: sof-hda-dsp, while lspci -v shows:
0000:00:1f.3 Multimedia audio controller: Intel Corporation Tiger Lake-LP Smart Sound Technology Audio Controller (rev 20)
Alsamixer says Realtek ALC255 chip.

What can I try next?

#6 Re: Hardware & System Configuration » Audacious says Jack wants 48000 but jack says 44100 ? » 2023-07-05 16:06:45

Seems mostly down to jackd1 being installed - removed it, and jackd2 is now running. Still can't get anything out from firefox->pulseaudio...
Had to restart applications as they must have internalised the connections to jack.

New laptop, new to Devuan, tried to run GrandOrgue, and got told 'jack server requires 48000', but jackd is running with 44100.
Then tried to play an mp3 file with Audacious and get the same. What is going on?

I have discovered 'Packages' which does allow me to locate and install packages. I liked Synaptic as it allows you to search for suitable packages in a reasonable manner. Shame that it is not working, and if debian/devuan are moving over to Wayland then it seems it is doomed....

I've recently set up Devuan Chimeara on a new laptop. After some problems with Wifi, it was working well, including Synaptic. When I wanted to use it
today, it issues the usual request for my password, then fails to start. Running it from a root window brings up the following:
No protocol specified
Unable to init server: Could not connect: Connection refused
Failed to initialize GTK.

Probably you're running Synaptic on Wayland with root permission.
Please restart your session without Wayland, or run Synaptic without root permission
as far as I understand I'm still running with xorg, not Wayland. Certainly running ps shows xorg and not wayland.

Any ideas?

Progress: found references to mediatek chips needing 5.12 kernel, with suggestion to install the xanmod kernel. Managed to do that:

# uname -r

I now find wlan0 exists in 'ip address' but NetworkManager, show it with 'not managed'

Deleted the references to wlan0 in /etc/netwprk/interfaces and restarted NetworkManager and wifi has connected!

Thanks for all the help!!

#11 Re: Installation » [SOLVED] No wifi on Acer Aspire 3 » 2023-07-03 07:46:52

synaptic search for mt7663 only pulls up firmware-misc-nonfree which I've installed, but that only provides firmware in /lib/firmware/mediatek.

Which package might contain the module?

#12 Re: Installation » [SOLVED] No wifi on Acer Aspire 3 » 2023-07-03 07:31:24

Ahhh, modprobe mt7663 says module not found!

#13 Re: Installation » [SOLVED] No wifi on Acer Aspire 3 » 2023-07-02 15:03:18

Further digging:
# nmcli connection show
NAME                UUID                                  TYPE      DEVICE
Wired connection 1  ce8605fe-de1f-4ce6-97d9-3f6e4c51fbfc  ethernet  eth0   
Wi-Fi connection 1  779db10d-3968-4372-aa75-fa2753fee9f9  wifi      --


# nmcli radio wifi

I've got used to Ubuntu which never required any of this digging around, so I'm not familiar with the various commands.

#14 Re: Installation » [SOLVED] No wifi on Acer Aspire 3 » 2023-07-02 14:46:35

The NetworkManager appears to have the details for my wifi, not sure how, /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/Wi-Fi\ connection\ 1.nmconnection contains:
id=Wi-Fi connection 1


psk=??????????            (psk obscured for security, but correct)




#15 Re: Installation » [SOLVED] No wifi on Acer Aspire 3 » 2023-07-02 14:28:45

$ sudo rfkill
[sudo] password for bill:
ID TYPE      DEVICE              SOFT      HARD
0 wlan      acer-wireless  unblocked unblocked
1 bluetooth acer-bluetooth unblocked unblocked
2 bluetooth hci0           unblocked unblocked

yes, NetworkManager claims to be running - the network icon on the panel just shows the wired connection.

#16 Re: Installation » [SOLVED] No wifi on Acer Aspire 3 » 2023-07-02 12:46:15

Yes, I did. Now no 'missing firmware' entries on syslog, apart from ones before the reboot.

#17 Re: Installation » [SOLVED] No wifi on Acer Aspire 3 » 2023-07-02 12:27:00

OK, installed firmware-linux-nonfree and firmware-misc-nonfree, still no wifi entry in 'ip address'. What next?

#18 Re: Installation » [SOLVED] No wifi on Acer Aspire 3 » 2023-07-01 18:18:53

Sorry, switching between machines.
Line is as you suggest:

       iface wlan0 inet dhcp

I've just installed Chimeara on my new(ish) Acer Aspire 3.

It hasn't set up wifi - when I ran the install it would only recognise the wired connection, so I completed the install with that.
I want to get WiFi working for use around the house and elsewhere, but it hasn't set anything up for it.

I tried putting an entry in /etc/network/interfaces, just:
   allow-hotplug wlan0
   wlan0 inet dhcp

and rebooted, but still ip address just shows the loopback and eth0 connections.

Any suggestions?

The machine came with Win 11 on it, and when I did the Windoze setup it didn't see wifi either, but when I had completed setup I was able to turn on
Wifi and connect without any problem.
