No output to either...

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?
Vaughan Agrez
@agrez
Fedora still defaults to chronyd at this point, so we follow suit. Not sure if/when they plan to switch.
I must admit, chronyd was/is significantly impacting on boot times with fedberry-barebone (28) last time I checked (as compared to previous Fedberry barebone releases). I like to keep boot times to around 5 sec for barebone and chronyd is currently spoiling the party!

@mavit
Hello, I notice that upstream Fedora 27 is scheduled to become end of life in just six weeks time. Are there any plans for Fedberry 28 or 29 release?
Vaughan Agrez
@agrez
Hi @mavit. Yes, I have seen the Fedora 27 EOL date looming. I never did 'official' Fedberry 28 release images as I was never happy with 'downstream' RPi kernel builds from branches newer than rpi-4.14.x (BTW, I did push up some 'unofficial' Fedberry 28 snapshot images but never announced anything). Recently, kernel builds from the rpi-4.18.x branch are looking pretty good, so I am starting to work towards a Fedberry 29 release based on these. It happens to coincide quite nicely with the Fedora 29 release time frame.

hi everyone! i have a problem when update a fedberry i had this error

i need help :c
Vaughan Agrez
@agrez
Hi @MarlonPindter. Do you happen to have either /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora.repo.rpmnew or /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-updates.repo.rpmnew files hanging around?
If so, then if you rename them to fedora-updates.repo & fedora.repo it should hopefully fix the problem.
Vaughan Agrez
@agrez
For those who may be interested, I have pushed up some Fedberry 29 development snapshot images (barebone, minimal & xfce). Barebone and minimal releases are pretty solid while the xfce image has a few minor niggles here and there which may or may not get ironed out by the time we do an official 29.1 release.
Not sure if I'll do a lxqt release yet......
sbadux
@sbadux
Thanks again for your work @agrez . I was hoping for an updated release of Fedberry. I spent a lot of time to fix problems with other RPi distros (SD corruption, updates that broke the system,...) but thanks to Fedberry it's more than a year that I don't have to maintenance my RPi and I've regularly installed all the updates. It's rock solid. I love it.
I think you can focus on a single DE. Xfce is good and I think that can be the only DE
Vaughan Agrez
@agrez
Hi @sbadux. Yes, I think I will just push out Xfce as the only desktop release for Fedberry 29. I spent some time this weekend finding a few bugs that will need to be fixed before I can do a LXQt spin, so this will only delay things even more.
Vaughan Agrez
@agrez
As far as sdcards go, I have a general rule which helps me greatly. If the SDcard costs less than the RPi, then don't use it! ;-) I find cheap sdcards are mostly a waste of time. Its amazing the performance and reliability improvements to be gained when a 'premium' sdcard is used. Cards with a 'lifetime' warranty have not failed me yet.
Although that being said, my main 2 builders have used external usb SSDs for a while now, so I don't thrash the sdcards like I used to.
Vaughan Agrez
@agrez
If anyone is interested, I have pushed up a vlc-3.0.5 build (based off of RPM Fusion spec file) for FedBerry (after also raiding Pi Towers for a patch which fixes mmal support). Seems to work quite well. Its in the testing repo for the moment.
