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

c0rnelius,

thanks for the information. I was going to use chroot on another machine to change the root password. It seems there is an easier way.

Will report back.


Regards,

J.

Thanks to all for the assistance. Everything (LXDE & Co.) is working as it should.

Regards,

XFCE is working fine, but only have a small problem: pulse audio doesn't detect stereo sound, only plays mono analogic. Do you know a way to tell pulse audio there is a stereo option?

Everything else works great, I use it as a desktop PC and even have used it to broadcast audio to an icescast server (of course, without using the audio card).

Edit the following file: /usr/share/pulseaudio/alsa-mixer/profile-sets/default.conf
Example: https://github.com/pyavitz/rpi-img-buil … .conf#L104 to L109

Then reboot. After which it should default to stereo.

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

Installed & started out using just CLI, including Links2, with mc & mpg123, but just had to add Fluxbox & Firefox-esr...... big_smile

Great little starter distro/version, likely I'll be dumping RaspiOS from my Pis soon, (as it seems to be somewhat bloated - & of course, has that systemd mess).


Many thanks for your work, (I got my download from Devuan.org this time).

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

Tried out, required yet a bit of extra work, but finally without systemd. Solely the WiFi adapter is not recognised. Anyone suffering from the same problem? Any hints?

Did it ever work or did you install something and it stopped working? If it wasn't setup upon firstboot, it can than be done manually using the following script.

Thanks to c0rnelius' builder work, Devuan Pi RPi4 images are located at arm-files.devuan.org.


At least for these images, the onboard WiFi interface is recognised, but you will need to configure

/etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf

for your WiFi network, or use the script mentioned in previous post.

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

Need to admit, didn't pay attention if WiFi was available right from the start or not, was concentrated on other stuff. Cleared the SD card again and tried the image at arm-files.devuan.org, but failed it to complete boot process, was trying to run some script again and again (suppose the init script).

Restarted with the image at https://github.com/pyavitz/rpi-img-buil … tag/images, booted so far, `ip addr` seems to reveal two adapters, not fully sure, though, as console prints several characters at the left out of the screen (how to fix?). Once network is set up correctly that won't disturb me too much any more as I'll be accessing the RPi via ssh anyway...

Didn't find the first image in the forum history any more (the one with root + toor login), so cannot tell if that would had recognised the wlan card right from the beginning.

I just flashed the img from the github and this is what I get.

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

The images that I downloaded from the Devuan site worked OK, just had to enter my wifi details into supplicant.conf - rebooted & wifi came up OK.

(Both on the RPi4 & RPi3 images.)
