Ubuntu 1404 development release problems

Ubuntu 1404 development release problems

Postby riedelralf » Thu Nov 20, 2014 10:16 pm

Hi,

i already have managed to install the new 'beta' release with MfG tools
root@tbs:~# uname -a
Linux tbs 3.10.17 #2 SMP PREEMPT Tue Jun 3 17:20:42 CST 2014 armv7l armv7l armv7l GNU/Linux
kernel.
Updated system, added some missing repositories, ... changed locales etc by installing some more tools like console-data and so on...
Whats missing:
- Vivante GPU support
- No WIFI support because the damned Realtek RTL817x driver is missing for RTL8188EUS (BUS 001 DEV 005: ID 0bda:8179)
- No PCIe support -> Needed for using TBS PCIe SAT-Tuner cards
- No chance to compile the TBS driver/modules for i.e. TBS USB devices or any other necessary hw

Here the make 'replies' after downloading the 'new' TBS sources from the web, unzipped and copied firmwares to lib/firmware:
root@tbs:~/Downloads/linux-tbs-drivers# make
make -C /root/Downloads/linux-tbs-drivers/v4l
make[1]: Betrete Verzeichnis '/root/Downloads/linux-tbs-drivers/v4l'
Updating/Creating .config
Preparing to compile for kernel version 3.10.17
File not found: /lib/modules/3.10.17/build/.config at ./scripts/make_kconfig.pl line 33, <IN> line 4.
make[1]: *** Keine Regel vorhanden, um das Target ».myconfig«,
benötigt von »config-compat.h«, zu erstellen. Schluss.
make[1]: Verlasse Verzeichnis '/root/Downloads/linux-tbs-drivers/v4l'
make: *** [all] Fehler 2

# sorry for the german language posts.

checked the modules folder:
built -link is missing ... F***

So where the hell I can re-install the original kernel headers and sources to 'make' me a running system?
BTW: A configuration of the Kernel would help as well -> PCIe support ?

Current config you can extract in terminal:
zcat /proc/config.gz > .config
build link you can make yourself:
sudo ln -s /usr/src/linux-...... /lib/modules/3.10.17.../build

Kernel sources you can get here, add to your sources.list.

Try installing
apt-get install imx-vpu imx-lib gpu-viv-bin-mx6q-x11 gpu-viv-bin-mx6q-libs vpu-viv-gst gpu-viv-acc-x11 firmware-imx libfslcodec libfslparser libfslvpuwrap
after this try
dpkg --configure -a
apt-get -f install
all on your own risk :roll: :!: :!: :!:

btw, i looked into the new tbs-linux-driver package, there is nothing in there for arm devices, so they will not build on the matrix. :evil:
they are only for x86 and x86_64

The only option is ljalves's media_build (tested and it works - at least usb tuners). Also for USB tuners there is one patch for kernel which adds some tuners. The second option is good to combine with non-tbs tuners.
You can help me buy new work notebook with paypal donation, after 8 years it's time to upgrade.

I don't have a tbs tuner, but for sure this helps riedelralf.

Thx, because of ubuntu sources lack of ARM support (maybe will come later on ...) I think I need to draw back to Debian Jessie prerelease.
Anyway, I need Linux driver support for the PCIe bridge and these tuners as well. RTL817x support would be nice to have.
Actual Kernel sources are not fitting well ?:
chuck@tbs:~$ sudo apt-cache search 3.10.17
linux-boundary-4t3-doc - Linux kernel specific documentation for version 3.10.17
linux-boundary-4t3-headers-3.10.17-27 - Header files related to Linux kernel version 3.10.17
linux-boundary-4t3-headers-3.10.17-3 - Header files related to Linux kernel version 3.10.17

chuck@tbs:~$ uname -a
Linux tbs 3.10.17 #2 SMP PREEMPT Tue Jun 3 17:20:42 CST 2014 armv7l armv7l armv7l GNU/Linux
This is the one? 3.10.17-2-boundary-nolcd-5t3 ?
The USB tuner would help private for the Matrix to use TVheadend, but I have a Moi-pro with Matrix 2.1 HW and PCIe bridge -> 2 Tuner 'cards' installed.
The XBMC OPENPCTV Linux isn't that flexible enough to add some more features... WIFI cannot be reconfigured -> Need that as Management Port to separate Streaming by MumuDVB via GbE from WebIF. ARCH -Linux would be a nice one instead of the full Debian or Ubuntu ;-)

I don't know which kernel the matrix-tv build is using, but i think you can find the matching kernel sources here:
http://git.freescale.com/git/cgit.cgi/i ... .6-imx.git
check your kernel version with uname -a

debian jessie rootfs now used from here:
http://jas-hacks.blogspot.co.uk/2013/12 ... 9-100.html
actual kernel 3.10.17 from the TBS 14.04_1.0.0.1 download, Uboot as well. uname -a:
Linux debian-imx6 3.10.17 #2 SMP PREEMPT Tue Jun 3 17:20:42 CST 2014 armv7l GNU/Linux
This distro runs quite smooth and has Vivante and gstreamer support.
Than added the boundary reps/sources in sources.list (are slightly different than the Ubuntu ones - but can be checked online).
