  1. I saw that ubuntu has mate on Wayland, Is there any funtoo plan for mate Wayland? Eventually using X11 on any ARM device won't make any sense as arm has decided to no longer support X11 for their GPU. TI has started some with the Imagination GPU a few years back and abandoned it. The futur being Wayland. On that mate Wayland from ubuntu, can it be run without any X11 support? On Beagle board X15 and Beaglebone AI I can have X11 2D GPU support since there is an open source driver but no 3D, I would like to use mate on Wayland on those. With the Odroid N2 I cannot get GPU support at all for X11. Odroid says that they will have good Wayland support in a few months. A side question, I am creating stage 3 for the Beagleboard X15 and Beaglebone AI, how can I get them to Funtoo? I will have them on my website when they are completed. I have been a bit busy with yocto but should get some time for funtoo in the next few weeks. Michel
  2. On Mate I was able to get the tile to change when emerging something, how do you do that in kconsole on kde?
  3. I got it fixed by running kde with startx and running the system settings. Now I got to figure out how to get a good resolution on the 1080 monitor that doesn't look like a vic20 resolution. Setting the 4k monitor DPI to 130 from 96 make the display on the 1080 monitor unacceptable. One thing amusing, I am labeled as newbie which is a bit off considering that I have been using gentoo for many years and Funtoo for the past 2-3 years I started Linux with Yggdrasil Linux back in the 90s when IBM announced the end of their OS/2 support. I earn my living with embedded Linux.
  4. After I got sddm-greeter binary I got this localhost ~ # /usr/bin/sddm-greeter --test-mode --theme /usr/share/sddm/themes/elarun/ Abandon
  5. localhost ~ # sddm-greeter --test-mode --theme /usr/share/sddm/themes/elarun -bash: sddm-greeter : commande introuvable
  6. localhost ~ # ldd /usr/lib64/qt5/plugins/platforms/libqxcb.so | grep 'not found' localhost ~ # equery b libqxcb.so * Searching for libqxcb.so ... dev-qt/qtgui-5.12.3-r1 (/usr/lib64/qt5/plugins/platforms/libqxcb.so)
  7. I have no problem running kde with startx but sddm or lightdm cannot load it. I had no problem with lightdm when I was running mate I thought at first that it was just refusing my password but when I entered a bogus password I had a different result. The password is accepted and I get a black screen and it gets back to the prompt. I setup the autologin and still get to the prompt asking for the login and password. I tried the theme and got some errors, so it looks like it cannot load the themes I followed the wiki closely so I assumed that I have all the needed files, what is missing? The monitor is a 4k monitor. michel@localhost ~ $ sddm-greeter --theme /usr/share/themes/breeze [23:32:02.279] (II) GREETER: High-DPI autoscaling not Enabled [23:32:02.280] (WW) GREETER: could not connect to display [23:32:02.280] (II) GREETER: Could not load the Qt platform plugin "xcb" in "" even though it was found. [23:32:02.280] (EE) GREETER: This application failed to start because no Qt platform plugin could be initialized. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem. Available platform plugins are: wayland-org.kde.kwin.qpa, minimal, offscreen, wayland-egl, wayland, wayland-xcomposite-egl, wayland-xcomposite-glx, xcb. Michel
  8. I've noticed the same issue with Fedora 29 Graphic mode works ok except that when using a second monitor that is 1080, keeping the first monitor as 4k creates issues. When characters are set to be viewable on the 4k monitor the characters are huge on the 1080 monitor. It looks like the solution is to get another 4k monitor. Is there a way to get them to work. Last I tried a compromise, slickedit would appear to crash, when I set the 4k display to 1080 it turned out that slickedit was opening a window outside of the viewing area on the second display. That was with a mate desktop, I haven't tried on my new install which I am compiling kde-plasma. It looks like it wasn't returned real size for the second screen and assumed that they were both 4k. Michel
  9. It looks perfect during boot except that the text is small, about the same size as on arch linux and Fedora 29. I know I can increase the text later on so that doesn't bother me quite as much as the half screen. It is hard to pinpoint exactly when the problem occurs but it appears to be at the point right after the kernel is loaded, perhaps as it reads inittab. I does have time to show stuff before switching to the login. Which script clears the screen before the login prompt show up? Maybe removing the clear screen would help see where the switch is made, assuming that the text shown would not exceed that half screen. I did remove the nomodeset since the text is always too big when leave it as I have seen with my Odroid H2. I haven't tried the H2 with my 4k monitor yet, I plan to connect to my 4k TV later on. I will likely have similar issues. On my Odroid H2 I could not get xorg to work without removing the nomodeset item. I do a lot of work on the command line so I do not want huge characters on the screen. I use 28 inches monitor to get more text, not to emulate a pet or vic20 style resolution. Right now I go around the small text problems using ssh on my mac and my odroid H2. My mac has a 28 inch 5k display. That works good to setup funtoo but when I do embedded Linux stuff I will want to do that work using my 4k monitor. Michel
  10. While the kernel is booting the whole screen is used but after the login only the top half of the screen is used. In both cases the text is so small that it is extremenly hard to read. How do we fix this issue and the fact that you would need and the display so we don't need magnifying lenses to be able to see what is displayed? My linux pc is a Ryzen 7 board with 32GB of RAM, RX580 video card, RAM and 20TB of hard disk space Michel
  11. I did find a solution. I will document the whole thing on my user page when I am done. I found the solution on a Gentoo page. On /etc/portage/profile I created a file named package.provided with the following content : x11-libs/libX11-1.6.5 x11-libs/libxcb-1.12-r2 x11-libs/libxkbfile-1.0.9-r1 x11-libs/libxshmfence-1.2 media-libs/mesa-17.2.8 x11-libs/libXrender-0.9.10 x11-libs/libXdamage-1.1.4-r1 x11-apps/xkbcomp-1.4.0 dev-libs/expat-2.2.0-r1 media-libs/fontconfig-2.11.1-r2 x11-proto/fontsproto-2.1.3 x11-libs/libdrm-2.4.83-r1 x11-libs/cairo-1.14.8 x11-libs/pixman-0.34.0 x11-misc/xcb-2.4-r1 media-gfx/xv-3.10a-r19 sys-libs/zlib-1.2.11-r2 x11-libs/libXv-1.0.11 x11-libs/libXvMC-1.0.10 x11-proto/xextproto-7.3.0 x11-proto/randrproto-1.5.0 x11-proto/compositeproto-0.4.2-r1 x11-proto/damageproto-1.2.1-r1 x11-proto/fixesproto-5.0-r1 x11-proto/glproto-1.4.17-r1 x11-proto/dri2proto-2.8-r1 x11-proto/dri3proto-1.0 x11-proto/inputproto-2.3.2 x11-proto/kbproto-1.0.7 x11-proto/recordproto-1.14.2-r1 x11-proto/renderproto-0.11.1-r1 x11-proto/resourceproto-1.2.0 x11-proto/scrnsaverproto-1.2.2-r1 x11-proto/videoproto-2.3.3 x11-proto/presentproto-1.1 x11-proto/xf86dgaproto-2.1-r2 x11-proto/xf86driproto-2.1.1-r1 x11-proto/xf86vidmodeproto-2.3.1-r1 x11-proto/xineramaproto-1.2.1-r1 x11-proto/xcmiscproto-1.2.2 x11-proto/xproto-7.0.31 dev-libs/libevdev-1.5.7 x11-libs/libXau-1.0.8 x11-libs/libXdmcp-1.1.2-r1 x11-libs/libXext-1.3.3 x11-libs/libXmu-1.1.2 x11-libs/libXrandr-1.5.1 x11-libs/libXt-1.1.5 x11-libs/libXxf86vm-1.1.4 x11-libs/libXfont-1.5.4 x11-libs/libXi-1.7.9 x11-libs/libXft-2.3.2 x11-libs/libXinerama-1.1.3 x11-libs/libXfixes-5.0.3 media-libs/freetype-2.8 x11-libs/libICE-1.0.9-r1 x11-libs/libfontenc-1.1.3 sys-libs/mtdev-1.1.5 x11-base/xorg-server-1.19.3-r2 x11-base/xorg-drivers-1.19 x11-drivers/xf86-input-keyboard-1.9.0 x11-drivers/xf86-input-evdev-2.10.5 x11-drivers/xf86-input-mouse-1.9.2 x11-libs/libSM-1.2.2-r1 media-fonts/font-util-1.3.1 All these are provided by the binary blobs from Texas Instruments. Imagination doesn't seem to want to provide the source code for the EGL libraries and the license for xorg is not GPL so we are stuck with binaries. So far they seem close in version to those used by Funtoo. I had issues on Arch Linux since a few applications would not compile. I am hoping that I will not get these issues here. My goal is to have a working mate desktop on my beagleboard X15 boards and eventually my beaglebone black boards. SGX files that are duplicates of those of funtoo are on /usr/local/XSGX/ For MESA they have custom names suzie /etc/portage/profile # la -la /usr/lib/*MESA* lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 34 11 aoû 18:52 /usr/lib/libGLESv1_PVR_MESA.so -> libGLESv1_PVR_MESA.so.1.15.4564147* lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 34 11 aoû 18:52 /usr/lib/libGLESv1_PVR_MESA.so.1 -> libGLESv1_PVR_MESA.so.1.15.4564147* -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 425332 11 aoû 18:50 /usr/lib/libGLESv1_PVR_MESA.so.1.15.4564147* lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 34 11 aoû 18:52 /usr/lib/libGLESv2_PVR_MESA.so -> libGLESv2_PVR_MESA.so.1.15.4564147* lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 34 11 aoû 18:52 /usr/lib/libGLESv2_PVR_MESA.so.1 -> libGLESv2_PVR_MESA.so.1.15.4564147* -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 443392 11 aoû 18:50 /usr/lib/libGLESv2_PVR_MESA.so.1.15.4564147* Some stuff like the TI gstreamer won't work with it as they need to run outside of X. The whole thing is listed as experimental by TI. Michel
  12. What would be the equivalent in funtoo for what we use in archlinux to replace packages. Here is an example, not complete since it overrides more packages but you should get the idea of what I am trying to do The package name is 'ti-xsgx-ddk-um provides=('ti-xsgx-ddk-um' 'xtrans' 'xproto' 'xextproto' 'libxcb' 'libxau' 'inputproto' 'kbproto' 'libx11' 'libxrender' 'libxft' 'libxext' 'libxdmcp' 'mesa') conflicts=('xtrans' 'xproto' 'xextproto' 'libxcb' 'libxau' 'inputproto' 'kbproto' 'libx11' 'libxrender' 'libxft' 'libxext' 'libxdmcp' 'mesa') replaces=('xtrans' 'xproto' 'xextproto' 'libxcb' 'libxau' 'inputproto' 'kbproto' 'libx11' 'libxrender' 'libxft' 'libxext' 'libxdmcp' 'mesa') Michel
  13. I got the SGX xorg working nicely. It supports the 3D GPU on the beagleboard X15. I got it to work on both Beagleboard X15 Rev A2 and Rev C. I plan to do the same with the beaglebone in a few weeks. I create the DRM driver for the kernel and the GLES and EGL libraries Now I want to get mate to work with it but have some issue which don't seem to have an easy solution. I started with this command : emerge -auDN @world It lists a lot of app and at the end this : The following mask changes are necessary to proceed: (see "package.unmask" in the portage(5) man page for more details) # required by media-libs/libepoxy-1.4.3::xorg-kit # required by x11-libs/gtk+-3.20.10::gnome-kit # required by app-crypt/gcr-3.20.0::gnome-kit[gtk] # required by gnome-base/gnome-keyring-3.20.0::gnome-kit # required by app-crypt/libsecret-0.18.5::gnome-kit # required by app-crypt/pinentry-1.0.0::core-kit[gnome-keyring] # required by app-crypt/gnupg-2.1.20-r1::core-kit # required by dev-vcs/git-2.15.2::core-kit[gpg] # required by @system # required by @world (argument) # /etc/portage/package.mask/mesa: =media-libs/mesa-17.2.8 # required by media-libs/mesa-17.2.8::xorg-kit[gallium,classic] # required by media-libs/libepoxy-1.4.3::xorg-kit # required by x11-libs/gtk+-3.20.10::gnome-kit # required by app-crypt/gcr-3.20.0::gnome-kit[gtk] # required by gnome-base/gnome-keyring-3.20.0::gnome-kit # required by app-crypt/libsecret-0.18.5::gnome-kit # required by app-crypt/pinentry-1.0.0::core-kit[gnome-keyring] # required by app-crypt/gnupg-2.1.20-r1::core-kit # required by dev-vcs/git-2.15.2::core-kit[gpg] # required by @system # required by @world (argument) # /etc/portage/package.mask/mesa: =app-eselect/eselect-mesa-0.0.10-r1 I do not want either mesa or xorg to be installed since they would conflict with what I have. SGX also has custom mesa files suzie ~ # dir /usr/lib/lib*MESA* lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 34 15 jui 00:01 /usr/lib/libGLESv1_PVR_MESA.so -> libGLESv1_PVR_MESA.so.1.15.4564147* lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 34 15 jui 00:01 /usr/lib/libGLESv1_PVR_MESA.so.1 -> libGLESv1_PVR_MESA.so.1.15.4564147* -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 425332 14 jui 23:59 /usr/lib/libGLESv1_PVR_MESA.so.1.15.4564147* lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 34 15 jui 00:01 /usr/lib/libGLESv2_PVR_MESA.so -> libGLESv2_PVR_MESA.so.1.15.4564147* lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 34 15 jui 00:01 /usr/lib/libGLESv2_PVR_MESA.so.1 -> libGLESv2_PVR_MESA.so.1.15.4564147* -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 443392 14 jui 23:59 /usr/lib/libGLESv2_PVR_MESA.so.1.15.4564147* suzie ~ # dir /usr/local/XSGX/lib/*EGL* lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 15 15 jui 00:01 /usr/local/XSGX/lib/libEGL.so -> libEGL.so.1.0.0* lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 15 15 jui 00:01 /usr/local/XSGX/lib/libEGL.so.1 -> libEGL.so.1.0.0* -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 146176 14 jui 23:59 /usr/local/XSGX/lib/libEGL.so.1.0.0* Any idea how to get around this issue? I think it should be fairly straightforward to get the desktop started by changing the configuration for xinit (startx) How do we get lightdm to play the right way with my xorg? Here is the script to start xorg from Texas Instruments : The script is on /etc/init.d/xorg #!/bin/sh x_start() { # Start the X Server. # /usr/local/XSGX/bin/X -config /usr/local/XSGX/etc/xorg.conf > /dev/null 2>&1 & echo "Starting Xorg" return 0; } x_stop() { # Stop the X Server. # [ -f /tmp/.X0-lock ] && read XPID < /tmp/.X0-lock && [ -n "$XPID" ] && kill $XPID && while [ -e /proc/$XPID ] ; do sleep 1; don echo "Stopping Xorg" return 0; } # Deal with the type of invocation we get. # case "$1" in start) x_start ;; stop) x_stop ;; *) echo "$0: unknown argument $1." >&2; ;; esac Michel
  14. I had the message posted on the wrong group. The issues I mentionned earlier I have fixed so I changed my message to be a real news message. The ACCESS DENIED message of my previous was caused by a bug in one of Texas Instruments scripts that was checking to see if I use clang. In the function that check for the presense of clang it tries to create some log on a place where it can't. TI must never have tested that on the target. I managed to get it to compile on the target after I fixed the script. That bug is in the pvrsrvkm source tree. I have published a stage 3 for Funtoo to use on the beagleboard X15 which uses an AM5728 processor from Texas Instruments. TI broke the eMMC support for the Beagleboard X15 Rev A2. I have fixed that. Note that I have not checked u-boot yet so I think that you might not be able to boot on eMMC. With a simular bug I was not able to boot off the eMMC on the DRA726 boards we have at work. I would have to wipe out debian on the beagleboard to check that out and I am not ready to do that yet. You can find the files on my website http://suzielinux.com/ I am creating some ebuilds for my Beagleboard X15 boards. I will publish those ebuilds in a few weeks. So far I have the kernel 4.14 and sgx kernel module ebuild created. My next targets are EGL and adapting mesa to not interfere with the sgx EGL. Michel
  15. I have been working on yocto, gentoo and funtoo for the Beagleboard X15. I needed to create a new image for one of my Beagleboard X15 boards. I created a partition of 90MB in fat32 for u-boot and MLO. I then created an ext4 partition for the rootfs using the following command because funtoo now uses the e2fsprogs that breaks u-boot : mkfs.ext4 -L rootfs -O ^metadata_csum,^64bit /dev/sdd2 That didn't not create a 32 bit filesystem as expected. The solution was to boot to ubuntu 16.04 which still uses 1.42 This command worked correctly on arch linux last I tried. I looke to replace 1.43 with 1.42 in my overlay but it doesn't appear to be possible. The unmask and mask do not work, funtoo insists on keeping the buggy version. I find it annoying to have to boot to ubuntu to do my work on arm boards. Any idea how to fix that? Is there any alternative to that e2fsprogs crapware? Michel
  16. I have created a Funtoo for Beagleboard X15. I use the latest released kernel from Texas Instruments that they have with the 3.0 SDK, the kernel version is 4.4.19 EGL works on this version in yocto, I will try to port it to funtoo, I will update to 4.9 when it is supported by TI. If anyone is interested in working on this let me know. Michel
  17. Can I use a gentoo stage3 seed to create a stage3 funtoo? I want to create a stage3 funtoo for a mips board. Michel
