The case is bought at Clas Ohlson: Väska | Clas Ohlson

The screen: PRODUCT- Gechic Corporation

Probably not bright enough in direct sunlight, but the field test is next week

Approx 7-8 Watt

15:13:56 UTC: OpenGL-> Texture rectangle format: de1
15:13:56 UTC: OpenGL-> Framebuffer Objects unavailable

15:13:56 UTC: OpenGL-> Using oes etc1 compression
15:13:56 UTC: OpenGL-> Compressed tile size: 128kb (6:1)
15:13:56 UTC: ChartDB Cache policy:  Max open chart limit is 20.
15:13:56 UTC: Loading chart db version: V018
Moving around at the raster chart is much faster, so I guess it is working.

An annoying bug: When enable dashboard plugin, the ocpnTollbarDialog are not visable after a restart of opencpn. I have only seen this on my cubietruck.
Reported it at: FS#1428 : Dashboard plugin, hide ocpnTollbarDialog

Re: OpenCPN Runs on Embedded ARM

I noticed the grib plugin is broken in several ways in opengl mode using gles. I'm working on a solution.

Re: OpenCPN Runs on Embedded ARM

I intend to support armhf (armv7) as an official target. This means debian packages for all the plugins. For armv6 (raspberry pi) you will still have to manually compile everything.

The installed packages use /usr instead of /usr/local, however you can still extract the tarballs to either location. I have begun to upload the packaged plugins for armhf to opencpnplugins | Free Science & Engineering software downloads at SourceForge.net so any feedback to verify these would be appreciated.

I am still working on grib and climatology as they have various bugs.

Re: OpenCPN Runs on Embedded ARM

Regarding watchdog plugin:
This from opencpn.log:

-so it's a little bizarre. I don't know if it could be a problem on the Trimslice but have you ever seen this before? I think the problem with the sound files is sure to have the same cause.

Aha! I did a 'file' on them and discovered that I have downloaded the 80386 plugin which obviously does not like to run on the ARM. The other plugins are specifically for ARM. So can I get the source and compile it here?

You can pull the source from github, or it would be nice if you can test the packages I just uploaded for armhf (armv7) eg: opencpnplugins - Browse /watchdog_pi at SourceForge.net

Sean,

great to hear. But this does only make sense with OpenGL support, doesn't it? And the postings here show that this is a quite stony path. Any idea how to make this easier?

Re: OpenCPN Runs on Embedded ARM

Yep, that did it - that solves the plugin issue, but now just to check out the sound problem.

Re: OpenCPN Runs on Embedded ARM

Well I got the source from github already - next time I'll try your ARM one. Thanks a lot.

Once I fix the grib plugin I can post a deb package for the main application. It should work with and without opengl, although I get significantly better performance with opengl.

Re: OpenCPN Runs on Embedded ARM

3.3.1825 does work on the A20 (built & compiled locally) - and it works fine as the "AIS-server" here.
But panning or zooming are no fun with this unit without OpenGL.

Re: OpenCPN Runs on Embedded ARM

I have uploaded arm packages, for many plugins as well as opencpn itself:

opencpnplugins - Browse Files at SourceForge.net

Please give feedback if you do try these.

Note, everything is installed in /usr instead of /usr/local (which is used by make install when building from source)

The field test went very well. OpenCPN on my cubietruck worked very well during my week in the archipelago outside Stockholm, Sweden.

The only problem is that the monitor was more or less useless in direct sunlight. My homebuilt protective case made it even worse.

Kudos to the OpenCPN team for a great tool.

Regards
Peter

OpenCPN on ODROID U3

Hi everybody,
after installing OpenCPN with HW acceleration on a CB2 I recognized that it is still a bit slow with 1080p resolution, so I tried an ODROID U3 (Quadcore1.7 with 2GB RAM and MALI GPU). I managed to install everything by using the instructions for CB2 and setting some symbolic links in the lib folders to make sure OpenCPN uses the right libs. GLXGears states 1150fps and OpenCPN is indeed pretty fast with 1080p resolution. I've set the map cache to 256MB and compiled some bitmap cards from OpenSeaMap which work mostly fine. If someone is interested in the instructions how to set it up in detail, I can post them.
Regards,
Martin
