Fenix: One Stop Scripts Set to build Ubuntu


#21

Hi ravelo,

It seems that some directories are not exist. Which ubuntu base did you use?

Thanks.


#22

hi, I used Ubuntu base 17.04
and I forgot to adjust server.sh to take it into account!
I gonna restart with fixed script and will report later.

by the way, the fenix instructions do build a kernel 3.14.29, right?


#23

Hi ravelo,

Yes, it is OK.

#24

hello, ok, here are some new errors after I adjusted server.sh to handle ubuntu 17.04;
the errors are when I enter the chroot session and I run ./RUNME.sh

maybe I have some connectivity issues ?


#25

regarding absence of initrd.img,
I made this observation :
mkinitramfs should have been installed by a “apt get install initramfs-tools” but this command failed for some reason.

No mkinitramfs means no initrd.img,
so everything is messed up because of that.

I try to understand what is blocking and how to install the arm64 packages anyway


#26

I checked on a 2nd computer, definitely, in the chroot session,
and in RUNME.sh, apt get install is able to find none of the wanted packages :

root@bodhi-giada:/# apt -y install ifupdown net-tools udev fbset vim sudo initramfs-tools bluez rfkill libbluetooth-dev iputils-ping

Hi ravelo,

For Ubuntu 17.04, you may try the following commands in chroot session:

# cp /etc/apt/sources.list.orig /etc/apt/sources.list
# apt-get update
# apt-get -y --allow-unauthenticated upgrade
# apt-get -y --allow-unauthenticated  install ifupdown net-tools udev fbset vim sudo initramfs-tools  bluez rfkill libbluetooth-dev iputils-ping

Replace apt with apt-get in script RUNME.sh.

Thanks.


#28

unable to locate most like means your nameserver isnt workling properly in chroot

You probably need to:
echo “nameserver 127.0.1.1” > /etc/resolv.conf
echo “nameserver 8.8.8.8” >> /etc/resolv.conf
That should fix it.

On another note, I dont think I will continue…
It is very disappointing to see a product like this with a total lack of support and process…

Khadas team - You need to supply a step-by-step for ANY build that is fully functional. I honestly dont believe you can work like this efficiently.

You have half baked scripts that create a linux with NO drivers.
You have half baked scripts that COPY drivers (so useless to even attempt to generate a newer version since depmod will fail).
You have not created a ‘proper’ GUI version.

Eveything that has been posted to build a system -forgets something- and then when that is fixed - forgets something else-

At some point you built a Ubuntu with a kernel 4.9 (if I remember correctly) in both server and in GUI. So how come someone on your team can not post an absolutely definitive step-to-step to recreate that process?

This needs to include all the little quirk modifications (like tweaking DTS files). everything.
This needs to be from scratch - no downloading core ingredients from your github. DRIVERS/Linux Core/Kernel/ U-Boot/ etc must all come from the lowest common possible denominator. Mali might be the only exception, but it should still be buildable for any kernel version etc…

And completion to a eMMC image - (or TF card, but either way) - complete steps for both, because there are some differences…

If you had this - people would be able to logically change one step at a time and test everything properly starting from a base process.

Also your forums would not be taken up with so much of the simpler support…

You would be helping yourselves out here.

I might also post this separately so its not lost.


#29

hi and thanks, these did the trick

  • echo “nameserver 8.8.8.8” >> /etc/resolv.conf
  • cp /etc/apt/sources.list.orig /etc/apt/sources.list
  • apt-get update
  • apt-get -y --allow-unauthenticated upgrade
  • apt-get -y --allow-unauthenticated install ifupdown net-tools udev fbset vim sudo initramfs-tools
  • apt --fix-broken install
  • apt-get -y --allow-unauthenticated install ifupdown net-tools udev fbset vim sudo initramfs-tools
  • apt-get -y --allow-unauthenticated install ifupdown net-tools udev fbset vim sudo initramfs-tools

and at the end,

fbset is already the newest version (2.1-28).
ifupdown is already the newest version (0.8.16ubuntu1).
initramfs-tools is already the newest version (0.125ubuntu9).
net-tools is already the newest version (1.60+git20161116.90da8a0-1ubuntu1).
sudo is already the newest version (1.8.19p1-1ubuntu1).
udev is already the newest version (232-21ubuntu2).
vim is already the newest version (2:8.0.0095-1ubuntu3).

hooray, let’s now resume the process where it stopped previously…


#30

next error was :
root@bodhi-DELL-T3400:/# systemctl enable bluetooth-khadas
bash: systemctl: command not found

I imagine I can skip on that one as it is related to enabling bluetooth at boot time


#31

ok,
i finally did manage to build and boot an ubuntu 17.04 w/ kernel 3.14.29;
a few error message during boot,
I need to carefully rebuild again to try to get rid of most of them


#32

and here are the errors at boot time, even after a second rebuild
as I use ubuntu zesty, maybe some fenix boot scripts do not work here as well as in 16.04!


#33

visibly, there are issue with the init process;
/etc/default/FIRTSBOOT never get removed after reboots, so that leans rc.local is never run!
i need to find out why, maybe by installing some package?


#34

Dear All,

How to replace ubuntu-mate built-in default admin. account : khadas/khadas ? I see ubuntu-mate-16.04.2-arm64.tar.gz has built-in khadas folder.

Thanks,

Allen
