Title: Raspberry Pi builder
Post by: coley on July 24, 2012, 01:52:45 pm
Picking up the discussion from here http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php/topic,12147.msg90780.html#msg90780
and Thom's suggestion http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php/topic,12689.msg90909.html#msg90909
What do I need to start running and breaking ;)
I'm assuming the database changes need to happen first to allow the builder scripts to operate correctly?

Database changes are the first step.  New builder conf files to add the new distro and arch information are also required.  I have this working here.  I've finally got some time and I'll jump into -devel and see if I can get on the database changes.

I setup a wiki page with some basic steps, issue list etc for following/post documenting porting to raspbian, please add/remove/comment as you see issues arise and fall.

I'm on the verge of submitting the build script changes that I am using.  I am working my way through a build now and fixing up some multi-arch include issues.

The biggest issue I am having right now is that I cannot get the arm mysqld to run in a qemu chroot.  I keep getting segfaults.  I'm working around this right now by running mysqld outside the chroot and sharing the database across multiple chroot builders (raspbian wheezy armhf & ubuntu lucid i386).

The createbuilder script I am using creates a raspbian builder, it also creates ubuntu builders, with shared source tree and shared database.

I have an initial device template for the rpi and I'm researching the MD detection/creation process to see how to proceed there.

Builds take a long time under qemu, there is a lot of waiting to see if the build succeeds/fails.

Once possy accepts the build script changes I will likely request svn access so I can apply patches as I go, it is much more efficient than having to ask and wait for others to apply patches.  This is the primary reason I am not creating patches regularly as I go, it becomes difficult to manage

I tried following your instructions to set up a Pi as an MD - but even after an sqlCVS update I don't have the Device template you mention, is there something I'm missing?
Are your raspbian builder scripts available somewhere?

thanks,

Post by: phenigma on September 30, 2012, 05:08:26 am
Hmm, strange.  I have sqlCVS updated many systems to get the Raspberry pi as MD device template (#2216).  It is there.  Make sure you sqlcvs update the 'dce' table AND the 'ir' table or the template probably won't show up due to missing data.

The Ubuntu_Helper diffs are in svn, not applied.  http://svn.linuxmce.org/trac.cgi/ticket/1521, I'll post the createbuilder script I use and try to provide a coherent set of steps to get raspbian build going.    Tomorrow, on my way to bed now...

No worries, whenever you get to it.
I installed a recent snap on a VM and do see your RPi device template - so I'm "guessing" my dB has a few non-standard entries which is preventing the template from appearing :)

I'll grab the Disk Image stuff from svn and see how far I get.

Get well soon.

Holy crap! the chroot'd raspbian build is sloooow - or maybe that's because I have it in a VM...
Don't have a full builder set up but am building up some of the common lmce libs.
I know qOrbiter has all the stuff statically linked but I figured its better back as a shared lib when there is less memory to go around as on the Rpi.

QEMU is slooow.  I build in VMs all the time, and building with qemu in a vm is very slow.  I'm away for the remainder of the week, I'll get to posting my createbuilder script this weekend.

Very good!  I'm glad someone else has tested the changes and things are working as I hoped.  My big question is:  Have you managed to get qOrbiter running yet?  I haven't had the time to get it going.  As soon as we have a build scenario for qOrbiter I'll flush out the MD creation more completely.  I've been running standard SDL orbiter on my (moon)Pi for some months now.  We are very close to having a working accelerated X on Pi which would allow SDL orbiter to function more fluidly.  qOrbiter is still the way to go moving forward of course.

I've been making some progress.
I've packaged the qt5 I've built with phonon as a deb and installed that.
qOrbiter runs but I'll have to stub out the AudioVisual Plugin for the moment until I can get it compiled. There have been changes in how plugins do their exporting.

golgoj4 - tbh I don't know if phonon is the right direction for the Pi.
I would have thought QtMultimedia would be the one to use but as that requires Qt5 I wanted to see could we at least get the AV plugin going as is. All I was expecting from phonon was at least what it gives a regular desktop system - it shouldn't care about bcm specifics as the drivers below should handle that.

-Coley.

Not sure specifically what you mean by how far my builder has progressed?  I had previously built all the packages for raspbian/armhf and they are up at dropbox for use in sources.list.  It has been a few months since I've done a rebuild of those packages but they work just fine with a 1004 core.  I have been puttering away the whole time.

I have a full MD running on 512MB RPi, photo-screensaver and UI1 with USB-UIRT.  Full MD with screensaver crashes on 256mb rpi.  The only piece of the puzzle that is missing is an omxplayer (a la mplayer_player) to handle media playback on the pi.

MD creation is essentially worked out, I have copious notes and have been working on updating scripts for proper MD functionality with as little alterations to current scripts as possible.  I have been waiting for 1004 release and lifting of feature freeze so I can request svn access and update everything I have here into svn.

Talking with golgo we decided that a UI1 based MD on rpi is the way to go until qorbiter matures more.

So... if there is anything that people could/should try to work on it is an omxplayer for pi mds.  With that we would have essentially complete MD functionality on the rpi.

Ok cool, with qOrbiter improving - Qt5 getting an offical RC - and omxplayer now having limited trick play I'll have to haul my ass back onto this. I didn't realise how far you had taken it - great stuff, +1 to golgoj4's sentiments.

I just got a tad peeved with everything being in such flux and bumping into walls constantly that I left things to settle - and how they have :)

Mainly it appears

Other than that, this would be pretty brain dead simple to implement. Maybe I should be less of a snob about this and accept that we cant have everything we want for v1 of a video player on the pi.

Is there anything outstanding we need to get it integrated so thats pnp?

Yes.  pnp booting also needs tackling, I have been testing two approaches, in the long run uboot is the preferred method. 

There are two options:
1. uboot network boot (preferred)
  - provides complete pnp
  - no user interaction with sdcard contents
  - dd card image once
  - sdcard contents unchanged
  - move the card to a new PI and a new MD will be created.
  - initial boot kernels and MD kernels fully managed by core
2. standard pi boot (not preferred)
  - mostly pnp
  - dd card image
  - sdcard contents change after initial MD creation
  - move the card to a new PI, user must alter sdcard or re-dd image
  - kernels managed entirely on the sd card
  - initial dd images must be updated as kernels change

I was working towards the uboot functionality but uboot has still not matured entirely on the pi.  I need to take another stab at it but much of the functionality for the rpi is still awaiting merge in uboot.  I have been applying patches to the source for testing.  Kernel parameters do not pass consistently with uboot on the pi.  I believe I know the issue but haven't had a chance to implement/test anything.  Essentially there is missing piece of code that copies the aggregated kernel parameters to memory location where the kernel is expecting them to be.

I don't think we need to sacrifice anything really.  The omxplayer source is available and it implements seeking entirely via timecodes.  If we base from the existing omxplayer then interface is through a static lib (similar to xine), interfacing would be more like xine using function calls rather than parsing text output like mplayer in slave mode.  lmce's omxplayer source could then be easily updated as additional functionality is added to omxplayer to leverage new features from upstream.  https://github.com/huceke/omxplayer <- omxplayer source.  To my untrained eye this looks *easy* to port.

I am completely willing to put the work into this as I have really enjoyed bringing this as far as I have.  My hands are tied until freeze is lifted and new devices can be created and sql2cpp run, etc.  It would also be handy for me to have svn access.  Again, until freeze is lifted there is not much I don't see much I can do on the player.

For reference: http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Porting_Raspbian read along and let me know if there are any questions, that way I can clarify things. 

There are currently 3 aspects that need further investigation:

Clarifying my omxplayer babbling.

When I speak of creating an omx player device for lmce many people seem to think I am talking about a dce wrapper for the console based omxplayer.  This is not what my intentions are. 

omxplayer is essentially a console interface to a statically compiled omx library.  My intention is to port the player portion to dce so that it is a native device like xine, not a console wrapper like mplayer.

:)  Just wanted to clear that up in case there were any misconceptions about my intentions for the device.

Hi All
I'm a happy user of LinuxMCE and last week I was trying to get MD on my 512MB Raspberry Pi. I've followed procedure "Proting Raspbian" on wiki page. At the moment I'm able to login to my "raspberry moon" (Pi is booting from the network and I'm getting login screen). So my question is :what I need to do, to have orbiter running on my Pi to be able i.eg listening a music. What do I miss during the install process or what extra steps needs to be done to have full MD on Raspberry Pi? I'm running 1004 Core
Thanks in advance for your help ;-)

Hello there, thanks for testing!

I'm glad that you have made it to the moonpi login.  That is as far as automatic setup takes you, at this point.  I expect to have automatic setup for MD functionality (without Audio/Video) working within a couple weeks and then I will be working on A/V playback.  Stay tuned!

I think it may be a dpkg issue. I don't think it can handle the .xz extension. I got this to work in 11.10. I add lucidbleed ppa and upgraded dpkg to 1.16.1 ?? can't remember but I know it was 1.16 something. Still had an issue. It seems that the plymouth amrhf has the .xz extension but not the i386.

I found out that raspbian has problems with serial adaptors and other usb devices. The source we are building from at raspbian.org does not have support for usb to serial adaptors. There are folks working on that  ;D. I have built a new kernel and updated the firmware and modules to include the latest commit. The rpi now attaches my prolific adaptor to ttyUSBx. There have been reports of this crashing after a while. I may not be able to test that just yet. I can outline the steps I took if wanted. Let me know.

I followed instructions here

http://mitchtech.net/raspberry-pi-kernel-compile/

Mostly. The kernel.img goes on the sd card and the modules and firmware go in /usr/pluto/diskless/xx/lib/

You will have to install the gcc cross complier. I followed this

https://wiki.linaro.org/Resources/ToolchainInstall-10

I can put a more user friendly outline together if you want to add it to you wiki. There is a shell script on rpi that should do this but did not work for me. At least not before I updated the modules. I think it may now. It's /usr/bin/rpi-update. You can see more about that at

https://github.com/Hexxeh/rpi-update

Title: Re: Raspberry Pi builder

Ok figured out the problem.

Because the rpi is a new style MD I needed to let lmce-admin know that. Added
Code: [Select]
$GLOBALS['rootRPIMediaDirectorsID'] = 2216; // Raspberry PI Media Directors
in hardCoded.php

and then had to make that a choice option when checking for MDs. Changed in utils.inc.php
Code: [Select]
if($row['FK_DeviceCategory']==$GLOBALS['CategoryCore'] || $row['FK_DeviceTemplate']==$GLOBALS['rootMediaDirectorsID']){
to
Code: [Select]
if($row['FK_DeviceCategory']==$GLOBALS['CategoryCore'] || $row['FK_DeviceTemplate']==$GLOBALS['rootMediaDirectorsID'] || $row['FK_DeviceTemplate']==$GLOBALS['rootRPIMediaDirectorsID']){under
Code: [Select]
function getTopLevelParent($deviceID,$dbADO)
That was causing my problem. Also changed same line under
Code: [Select]
function getTopLevelParentIP($deviceID,$dbADO)And changed under
Code: [Select]
function isMediaDirector($deviceID,$dbADO,$mdOnly=0)this line
Code: [Select]
if($DeviceTemplate==$GLOBALS['rootMediaDirectorsID']){
To this
Code: [Select]
if($DeviceTemplate==$GLOBALS['rootMediaDirectorsID'] || $DeviceTemplate==$GLOBALS['rootRPIMediaDirectorsID']){

I haven't tested it too much yet but appears to work.

SBCC, my raspbian repo for lmce is not stable at the moment.  I have been rebuilding packages twice a day working on the build-system and many things are broken, but getting fixed.  As soon as I have a stable repo, likely tonight.  I will let you know and you can report issues you may have.  One-wire may not be building currently, but that is likely easy to rectify.

At this point my next step is MD setup to launch orbiter, rather than the simple debootstrapped system of a moonpi so far.

Thanks for all your work. I can put that together that ticket. If I have any questions I'll let you know. I am building some things now, OneWire being one of them. I'm building dependencies as I go as needed. I am building what I need to use the rpi for headless automation. If you like I can dropbox them for you.

That would be great.  I can reference what you have vs what we have in svn.  I am trying to incorporate everything into the standard build system.

Not sure if this is the best place for this.

I had to make some changes so TranslateUSB works. I show it on ticket #1738.
With those changes OneWire runs on the rpi. It just will not start on it's own. I have not installed any sensors yet but I will soon.


Edit:
Sensors work fine. I had to reload router to see them in lmce-admin.

This is as good a place as any right now!   ;D

Thanks for the ticket!  I have been making good progress on pi MD creation and I hope to incorporate your changes very soon.

As for it not starting on its own, that is a result of not having the rest of the MD infrastructure in place on your pi.  I have it running but have some things to do before submitting.

Thanks again!  The testing you have done has been extremely helpful!
