Hello Joval,
This is amazing work! Can you please make a 2 GB version of the Devuan image? Some of us don't have 4 GB flash cards. Also, I am getting an error while unzipping the 4 GB image. It says "headers error". If you could host 2 GB version, that would be great. Thank you!

Thanks!

Looks like the 32 GB image is broken; I get an error of archive end of file not correct when I open it. The 4 GB open no problem.

If I have a larger card than 4 GB, can I still flash it with the 4 GB image?


I tried again the 32 GB image and still no luck. Although I assume that what is in that image is mostly the same of what is in the 4 GB, right?

As far as expanding the 4 GB to 8 GB; I ended up using the previous 8 GB image you made, and replaced the content of the partitions with the 4 GB content. Problem solved

I tried to use an Orinoco Agere wifi card with Linux, but it does not seem to be working; I will try with a LAN card instead, so I don't have to battle with the wifi encryption and such. I may need to be online mostly to get packages

I haven't tested the images from HPCFACTOR, will try to do so in the next 2 weeks and correct things... time permitting. Thanks for the positive feedback. I never thought we would ever get these little beasties on the internet... so , yes rather amazing. Thanks mostly to Stefan's great work on the Devuan kernel, on WiFi connection manager, on Zram, Bx patch, etc.

Sounds like you know what you're doing. The 32Gb (actually 31Gb) is the same but auto boots into desktop with startup of Jornada config. Which is really nice.

Some C.F. cards don't work see Stefan's site. I haven't tested the downloads from HPCFACTOR yet... maybe some issue in copying from my sugersync site... the 4Gb image works with any size 4Gb or larger and Timos Jornada-config will automatically resize to max it out. His site has details.

AFAIK, WPA WiFi is only possible with prism based cards with firmware upgrade to version 1.7 or 1.8 such as Netgear MA 401 or LinksysWpc11(version3 or less). Your router must allow wpa/wpa2, etc.

I'll try to get some screen shots up eventually. Enjoy.

Joval

Sorry about the delay... I just checked the HPCFactor download site and the Devuan-32Gb image is defective , it should be 536MB instead of the 281MB... so perhaps C:Amie will replace it with the full image.


Meanwhile it can be downloaded here: https://app.sugarsync.com/iris/wf/D4898663_09915533_66697

I do apologize for the delay... as it is a very obvious truncated file error I could have recognized in a second without even burning it!

best regards

Joval

I have re-uploaded both of them.
https://www.hpcfactor.com/downloads/1942/Devuan_D7_Images/version_20...


Hi All!
Great job, C:Amie! I have just downloaded both the 32Gb and 4Gb images and easily burned/written them (using free Win32Imager ) to SD and microSD cards.... and using the SD to CF "Slim" card adapter (Digigear)... both Images are working flawlessly now... both auto-log into the Desktop with Jornada-config window displayed!!! Easy peezy.

The larger 32Gb images displays Jornada-config window and a second Terminal window as well as battery level window, the 4Gb image displays Jornada-config window , battery level mini-window, and the Main Menu pops up too. These can be configured to your liking in the IceWM startup file ( location: /etc/X11/icewm/startup) if you want to fiddle around and customize.

This is my first post from one of my J720's with the new LED backlight and I must say it is very nice, bright and clear.

I confess I had to take a hiatus from devuan for a while... transitory "burn out" .... tryng to perfect things, dealing with glitching images.

But now I'm back and must admit that when wifi connected to a RasPi4 (as home server) and running VNCviewer... absolutely works great... from any room, so quick, no lag, tutorial videos run amazingly well. This via WPA wifi Netgear MA401 wifi card with v1.7 firmware upgrade.

Speedy little beastie... so great for posting. So, have at it Factorites!

joval from J720+LEDupgd/Devuan4Gbimage/WPA-wifi/SSH to Raspi4/VNCviewer/Firefox or Chrome

Hi have try to boot it on a j728 downloading the last image hosted. But the booting process ends with kernel panik warning.

I'm using a 32gb cf.

Any hints? I have seen in this thread that other members experimented the same problem.

Hi,

The "kernel panic " can occur with a number of things:

Check/edit the PARAMS.txt for mem and root delay settings.
A.) Wrong memory size in file mem=32 or 64, depending on if J720 vs J728

B.)CF cards: Stefan recommends root delay=5 for CF cards as the bios/bootloader takes longer to locate the kernel file on the CF card, in my image I set root delay=2 works great with SD cards... probably too little for your CF card. So that might be an easy fix for you, change to root delay=5 in PARAMS.txt.

C) Look at Stefan's Jornada wiki... evidently some CF cards just don't work and he has some help in testing them. http://www.sp-net.at/wiki/doku.php?id=jornada_j720_linux_cfdriver

Lastly, with SD cards using a SD to CF adapter if the card is loose fitting, try removing it a re-seating it as poor contact can give kernel panic... red adapters are worse... can also give the "format card " error (usually an adapter issue) when card is placed in Jornada.

Let me know how it goes!


best regards,

Joval

The digigear adapter arrived today and with its help devuan booted on the jornada. Now I have to manage to get it online. I have an cisco 350 but I don't know if there is an available driver for it or another wlan cad that works by defoult
