REV: - populated. No uConsole to test with. Infinite sadness.
sigh… nope … not here either!!! sigh …
Maybe you should create a new topic dedicated for this project? Would be a bit better un term of visibility than here.
Graphics on the beepberry using LGVL and ‘/dev/fb1’. Not bad for monochrome.
Beepberry email - beepberry with pi are in process!!! testing then shipped!!! WOOT!
REV: A, populated. I think the mid-mount USB’s will work well mechanically.
Lots of drama on the uConsole shipping page (I’ve remained silent because I have nothing further to add) but folks have forgot about WenShip! Also the A-06 DevTerm issue where the screen blanks after the unit sleeps has been temporarily bandaided by using a Mouse Dither USB dongle…
Yeah i dont understand what all the drama is about.
I think my first thing im going to do with my uConsole is get Fedora working. They have an official CM4 image out there, so i hope it wont be too hard. Im going to dig into the CWPi CM4 kernel patches and see what all they are adding just to see if anything is hardware specific that isnt plug-and-play in the newer kernel used by Fedora.
Your Kungfu is greater than mine! I just successfully installed an application from source about a month ago! I installed WinLink for linux from source on my Panasonic tough book
Similar discussion is going on over here for an expansion board. Would be good to keep the discussion all in one place since all projects may benefit.
I dont know if ill be able to get it to work but im hoping it wont be too terrible if i get some help. I have been reading a lot but have never compiled a custom kernel outside of some minor tweaks when messing with Gentoo.
I have been doing some reading, i may be able to use the boot partition and kernel from the official uConsole image. That seems like a good middle step to getting this working on the uConsole. Now i just need the hardware to test it and see how bad of an idea this is!
Beeper gets a uBlox, baro, mag, imu sensor deck. GPS needs some antenna rework, but I think it will track outside.
Nice fit … the small space format of the beep really is awkward for an add on… and those pins … they are not in the greatest place either… but you managed to get a board in there!
Hey has anyone seen this???
Yep, I’m on a couple other discords with the guy. Been following the development of it for a couple years now.
Message from SQFMI about the Beepy (Argghhh or whatever they are calling it…) shipping soon - all orders minus the pi zero already went out - units with pi zero shipping soon… the race is on what gets to me first … uConsole ordered in November 2022 … or SQFMI product ordered in July 2023…
exiting! I’ve already got the case printed! and I’m imaging the card now… - what size screws did use ? I have M3’s and some small UAE threads … how easy is it to change network settings from bash? what programs have you installed? - I have notes for putty, mutt, vim, weechatt… python (terminal IDE only)… node red… and probably MariaDB… (Just installed Node-red on the UniHiker and it’s crazy!)
Fyi - if you want to use the side button Blank screen and disable keyboard with side button · Issue #17 · beeper/beepberry · GitHub.
I pasted a blurb of code there.
I wanted be able to carry it in my pocket with the keyboard and display off while powered.
that would be my intent as well… thanks!!!
