@agrez
Oh and another thought.... make sure you have at least 128MB (some people seem to recommend more) allocated to the GPU.

@sbadux
Thanks a lot!
Vaughan Agrez
@agrez
I just thought of something else. All of the above works when using the default fbdev driver. All bets are off when using the vc4 kms driver as everything is different.
sbadux
@sbadux
Hi again and thanks. I will use the default driver since I don't know how to change it :) I've seen that the new Linux 4.18 added the support for RaspPi 3/3B. Will this news change something in the Fedberry development?
Vaughan Agrez
@agrez
Nope, the upstream 4.18 kernel release doesn't mean much for Fedberry development as we use the 'downstream' kernel port from the raspberry pi foundation. IMO, its still more stable, is better performing and has much better hardware support as compared to upstream kernel development.
Upstream kernel development is still catching up.... its getting there slowly.....
Vaughan Agrez
@agrez
For various reasons, Fedora uses upstream kernels for RPi's and it shows..... it always seems to have various bugs afflicting RPI's and seems to have consistent breakage. From a stability point of view its frustrating and its the main reason I haven't stopped development of Fedberry yet.
sbadux
@sbadux
I hope you won't stop the development. I was looking for a desktop-distro for the RPi2 and I used Raspbian, Ubuntu Mate and almost all the distros for Raspberry but everyone has some problem. Some are too much technical, Raspbian starts as a root and the updates often break the OS, Mate corrupts the SD cards, Fedora is so damn slow. Since I've found Fedberry and it's almost perfect. I really LOVE Fedberry and I suggest it to everyone asks me something about the RPi. It's running on my RPi for 6 months and I've never had a single problem. Always updated and stable. You did a great job. Thanks
Vaughan Agrez
@agrez
I'm glad to hear that! Its nice to hear some positive comments once in a while. Helps with the motivation. Thanks @sbadux :-) :thumbsup:
sbadux
@sbadux
You deserve it :)
sbadux
@sbadux
What about request a Distrowatch page? https://distrowatch.com/dwres.php?resource=submit I've noticed that Fedberry is neither listed nor in the waiting list
Vaughan Agrez
@agrez
I've always considered Fedberry as a Fedora remix, not as a separate standalone distribution. The reality is we are predominately built upon the hard work of Fedora developers, with some custom changes and packages from us that provide performance and usability improvements for RPi's.
sbadux
@sbadux
If everyone had thought this way Distrowatch would have only few distros :D I have suggested this because it's a great way to find new users, but I understand what you mean ;-)

I upgraded to F28 but had/have a conflict between linux-firmare package and bcm434xx-firmware.
Which package should I use/not use or how can I install both (if both are needed)
The conflicting/duplicate file is bcrmfmac43455-stdio.bin
Vaughan Agrez
@agrez
@Heterodyne Thanks for the report..... Hmmmm..... I see Fedora has updated the linux-firmware rpm but we have excludes for this in our yum repo files, so I'm not quite sure why this is happening when upgrading.
You need our bcm434xx-firmware + linux-firmware packages together, otherwise our bcm434xx-firmware rpm will surely conflict with Fedora's release.
I will update our linux-firmware which will fix the issue for now and then try to figure out why dnf is ignoring the linux-firmware exclude we have in place.
Vaughan Agrez
@agrez
Just out of interest, what's the output of cat /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora.repo |grep -m1 linux-firmware and cat /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-updates.repo |grep -m1 linux-firmware?
Michael Katzmann
@Heterodyne
No output to either...
Michael Katzmann
@Heterodyne
I think the conflict was between the Fedberry linux-firmware package and the Fedberry bcm434xx-firmware rpm (not the Fedora linux-firmware rpm).
Vaughan Agrez
@agrez
Hmmm, you should get output for both of those commands..... which means your install is either not fully updated or you might have fedora.repo.rpmnew & fedora-updates.repo.rpmnew files in /etc/yum.repos.d/
what release of 'fedberry-repos' do you have installed? rpm -q fedberry-repo
Michael Katzmann
@Heterodyne
Yes, the rpmnew files were there. I copied them over. fedberry-repo-28-8.fc28.noarch
Vaughan Agrez
@agrez
Its likely that was the issue then (ie the fedora.repo fedora-updates.repo files weren't updated therefore the linux-firmware exclude wasn't present). I don't usually like updating repo files after release due to this very issue but sometimes certain issues force my hand.

Hello, everyone
I'm trying to compile minidlna for the fedberry (currently compiling ffmpeg, since it isn't in the repos)
I was thinking about making an RPM for the builds to avoid the hassle for the next guy, so far I've built:
Do you guys have your own repos for armv7?
Juan Carlos
@JuanKman94
Okay, I just saw the rpm specs on the repo hehe :sweat_smile:
Vaughan Agrez
@agrez
Hi @JuanKman94. I have only built ffmpeg for Fedberry 28 at this point. Packages are in the 'testing' repo.
Vaughan Agrez
@agrez
I might trigger a build for Fedberry 27 but I don't know when I'll get a chance to test it...

Hi, looking to see if there is a reason for raspberrypi-vc-libs-20180801-1.f74ea7f.fc27.armv7hl to creating "/opt/vc" and "/opt/vc/lib" in the packages, as they seem to be removed as well (dnf repoquery --list raspberrypi-vc-libs-20180801-1.f74ea7f.fc27.armv7hl) shows these files, but they are not there after update. I just happen to be running autofs on /opt and thus cannot run dnf update without stopping/disabling autofs, rebooting without it and then updating, and re-enabling. If these don't need to exists, why are they in the package? thanks for any help/insights - not sure if this is the right place for this
Vaughan Agrez
@agrez
hi @itisthec. The /opt/vc dir is the 'official' RPi location for the libs and since we have the libs located elsewhere (/usr/lib/vc), I recently added some soft links in /opt to help maintain compatibility. Basically, everything else out there in the Raspberry Pi universe expects the libs to be in /opt/vc/lib and I was tired of working around this issue in various packages.
Vaughan Agrez
@agrez
My guess for /opt/vc and /opt/vc/lib not existing after updating is that autofs is still somehow messing with whole update process. Can you assign a different dir for autofs to use? Maybe something a little more standard like /media or if not, a subdir in /opt (/opt/media) ?
itisthec
@itisthec
i can see what i can do - but this isn't auto-mounting media, this is nfs auto-mounting application software to local network machines (single central configured software mounted out to all the machines with separate local logging), auto-mounted media does go into /media
but this is new with this release? so it wouldn't have been an issue before (just trying to understand cause/effect)
oh, and thanks for the quick reply and background, very much appreciated. Really love the fedberry releases, thanks for that too!
Vaughan Agrez
@agrez
@itisthec yes, these are new changes I made when working on Fedberry 28 packages and its all been pushed to Fedberry 27 as well, so no it wouldn't have been as issue before.

@markand
hello all
is there a guide to create custom version (as image disk) of fedberry using kickstart?
for example, to add/remove some packages from the default barebone kickstart file
Vaughan Agrez
@agrez
Hi @markand. You can pretty much follow the standard Fedora procedure here: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Architectures/ARM/Creating_Remixes
Of course however, use our kickstarts instead.
Go here to grab the latest kickstarts: https://github.com/fedberry/fedberry-kickstarts (master branch is for Fedberry 28)
David Demelier
@markand
okay thanks I'll do :)
fedberry running on my raspberry pi 3 !
is chronyd really required since we can have systemd-timesyncd instead?
