Hello pAul,
You forgot about the intructions for download smile

(Remove .sha at the end for the actual image. Home server, so be kind...)

You need to copy the link, paste it and remove '.sha' from the name, before continue to download.. smile
or get it here( I removed the '.sha' )

That image is by MetaYan, you can also find him in the irc chanel #devuan-arm

Best Regards,
tux

Re: Is any work planned for devuan on the raspberry pi 4?

This is the first image that seem to work flawless on my Pi4 4G! Thanks for the work. I am going to give it an extensive test.

Re: Is any work planned for devuan on the raspberry pi 4?

Little snag, this image as well as all pi3 images simply rfuse to accept changing the keyboard layout on the tty, apperently this is hardcoded somewhere. I have not been able to find where.

/etc/default/keyboard - you might need to install console-setup before you get that file. Also check your locale is set right and generated.

Re: Is any work planned for devuan on the raspberry pi 4?

This is like a updated version of the above.
So I took the long weekend to create a Image maker.
While playing with it the foundation opened archives up to arm64.
So the raspberrypi.gpg.key is included, along with a raspi.list.
Thus the kernel and pi stuff comes directly from them.
Or can, I think Devuan over rulez.

You can get the image from my gitlab.

sudo git clone https://github.com/ShorTie8/Devuan-imager

A user devuan/toor has been created, for yucks now, I guess.
I had set it up to test my vcgencmd as a user, but not really needed now.
As it is from the foundation now.
root passwd is also toor.

ssh --no-install-recommends has been installed for headless.
EXTRAS="dhcpcd5 fake-hwclock ntp mlocate parted wpasupplicant".

Made up a init for growpart.
So root is AutoMagically expanded @ run level 2.

Switched over to UUID for cmdline.txt and fstab.
The growpart init checks fdisk for mmcblk.
If there does 'growpart /dev/mmcblk0 2'.
Otherwise does 'growpart /dev/sda 2'.
So as soon as they get usb boot pushed thru, should be able to use the Image on a sdcard or usb device.
Pleaze be nice and hook up any extra drives after 1st boot.

Have a Great Day
ShorTie

psst, The foundation has a newer kernel then in the image.
So don't forget the apt update/upgrade

Should be noted that the difference between the armhf and arm64 packages are kernel versions - both packages contain both 32 and 64 bit kernels, but the ones tagged +arm64 are kernel 5.4.x where the armhf contains 4.19.118.

I am sure if you are willing to unpack and copy over by hand, you can get up to 5.x on even a 32 bit Pi that way.

Great work, btw, ShorTie - still running on my own solution posted elsewhere, but yours is much much more user friendly smile

Re: Is any work planned for devuan on the raspberry pi 4?

That is why I was wondering about chimaera for arm64, as the kernel headers are closer I do believe .. hmm~

Re: Is any work planned for devuan on the raspberry pi 4?

Devuan image builder - https://github.com/pyavitz/rpi-img-builder/tree/devuan
You can find sample images under release - https://github.com/pyavitz/rpi-img-builder/releases

As far as I know all the usual suspects work. HDMI, Audio, Bluetooth, Wifi, Eth... etc.

If you find any bugs or have a request than open an issue at the hub.

Now supports - BCM2711, 2710, 2708.

Re: Is any work planned for devuan on the raspberry pi 4?

I posted an SD card image builder script for RPi series at
http://dev1galaxy.org/viewtopic.php?id=3871
A created SD card works fine on RPi 4B 8GB model.

Edit: Built SD card images are available at https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/ … sp=sharing

Re: Is any work planned for devuan on the raspberry pi 4?

I gave the chimaera img for the Rpi4 a spin but wasn't able to connect to it again after update. Jumped over onto ther Geowulf and it worked great. Nice and clean just put on it what I needed. Playing round with libcamera and some of the alternatives for performance and quality of output. Great fun! big_smile

Re: Is any work planned for devuan on the raspberry pi 4?

but wasn't able to connect to it again after update.

The recent version of raspi-firmware has a bug deleteing arm_64bit=1 from config.txt in its upgrade and installation, as reported at https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugrepo … bug=975943. This bug makes linux-image-arm64 completely unbootable. Manually adding arm_64bit=1 to config.txt in the first DOS partition of an SD card make it bootable again...

Re: Is any work planned for devuan on the raspberry pi 4?

Hello all,


has this thread died a death?

I have a Raspberry PI 4B (8GB) running RPIOS 64-bit using a 5.10.16v8 kernel.
I would like to install an arm64 Beowulf or Chimera on the above.
Are there any cookbooks and/or howtos to do same?

Any pointers/tips much appreciated.

Regards,

JC

Meta Yan build a image for Rpi4
Also C0rnelius, has a image for it here .

I advise you to do after flash that image a:

apt-get update
apt-get upgrade

Then if you want to advance to Chimaera, you should update your '/etc/apt/sources.list', accordingly:

deb http://deb.devuan.org/merged chimaera main contrib non-free
deb-src http://deb.devuan.org/merged chimaera main contrib non-free

then

apt-get update
apt-get dist-upgrade

and you are in Chimaera.. smile

Re: Is any work planned for devuan on the raspberry pi 4?

Tux3dv, appreciate the reply thanks.

Is there an imager to write this thing to an SD-Card? Is this image USB-Boot capable?

Thanks and regards

You welcome,
Yes its bootable..

You can flash it using 'dd'. smile

# uncompress the image
unxz /home/user_home/Desktop/yourimage.img.xz
# check what disk is your sdcard
lsblk
# write image to sdcard
dd if=/home/user_home/Desktop/yourimage.img of=/dev/sdx_your_sdcard conv=notrunc,fdatasynk

substitute above the correct locations smile
make sure to flash to the correct sdcard disk, because if you flash to your OS disk, you will ruin that partition..
Do it with precaution.. wink

Re: Is any work planned for devuan on the raspberry pi 4?

Tux3dv, thanks for the information. It works.
Now I have a headless Devuan.
I presume I can put XFCE or LXDE on same.
What is the root pw? and is there a network setup script?
Do the RPI* utilities as available on RASPI OS also work here?

Regards,

J.

PS I can use USB tethering with the smartphone initially, but a network setup script would be nice.. smile

Re: Is any work planned for devuan on the raspberry pi 4?

Images can be located here: Images
Along with an explanation on how to use them. Such as a wifi setup script and the ability to choose your own username & password upon first boot.

I don't support armhf images, but do have an armhf branch for those who don't mind building their own images.

Re: Is any work planned for devuan on the raspberry pi 4?

Hallo all,

progress report:

Managed to get the WIFI working.
Installed LXDE.

Is or are there firmware update tools and utilities as present in RASP OS? i.e. raspi-config, sdcard copier etc.

Again, I need the root password.

Regards,


J

I can't speak for LXDE, but Xfce appears to be working just fine: screenshot
Only thing that really needed adjusting was adding pulseaudio -D to Session and Startup

Re: Is any work planned for devuan on the raspberry pi 4?

LXDE is also working, I have no problems wuth that.

The root password I need. I also the the equivalent of the sdcard-copier as available in RASPIOS to copy the sdcard to my USB SSD drive.

Thanks!

J.

If you are using one of my images it doesn't a have a root password, as that's a security risk. You can easily create one though: sudo passwd root

As for writing to SSD run:

deb-eeprom -u (updates the script and shows options)
deb-eeprom -v (edit version variable to 11.8)
deb-eeprom -U (this will upgrade you to the latest eeprom)

Now reboot and attach the SSD (make sure only one SSD or USB storage device is attached)

deb-eeprom -w (this will setup eeprom, partition the drive and transfer the contents of the SDCARD to the SSD) 

My images by default should just boot off SSD. So next time just write the img to SSD, attach and go.

Note:
If you run into problems such as the drive being slow or not bootable, then you need to add usb storage quirks to the cmdline.txt
