Re: OpenCPN Runs on Embedded ARM

Jake...
ticki has a Beagleboard-xm. ts-7400 is way too weak to be able to handle this task. More in the first few posts of this very thread...

Re: OpenCPN Runs on Embedded ARM

My bad

I mixed up a couple of things, most notably the subject ("Embedded ARM")

embedded-arm does have more recent boards thay may be fast enough, not sure.

I do love the quality of the embedded-arm line of ARM boards, hence my question.

Re: OpenCPN Runs on Embedded ARM

hi,
1.ts-7400 has no graphic on board
2. the Ram is to small
3. no X-Server available( you have to compile it self)
4. the processor ist to slow for good performance.

regards
ticki

Re: OpenCPN Runs on Embedded ARM

Hi all,
the exact board pc that I require. It is a very nice sub-project.
Today my beagleboard arrived and I would like to install OCPN.
Do any of you happen to have a complete image with OCPN and Ångström
( I’am not so familiar with linux )?

Regards
alu

Re: OpenCPN Runs on Embedded ARM

Where i can upload the complete Image ?
do you need linux live CD or linux machine to copy the complete Image with DD

dd if=/PathToTheImage/theImage of=/dev/sda

the Image is source file
/dev/sda the card where you like to copy it.

regards
ticki

Re: OpenCPN Runs on Embedded ARM

ticki...
If you fell like you want to produce more stuff, just upload it to the place I made for you - the account is still active and there's enough free space...

Re: OpenCPN Runs on Embedded ARM

Hi ticki

If I copy the files to /usr OPCN can’t find the wx libs.
It is easier to copy the image to a sd-card.
It would be nice if you upload the image for the Beagleboard that includes the OCPN installation.

Regards
alu

Re: OpenCPN Runs on Embedded ARM

hi Alu,
if you unzip the wxGTK package , you have a folder. You have to copy the content of the folder ( there are 4 folders bin,include,lib and share inside) .
copy not the folder wxWidget to /usr only the 4 folders to /usr

then open console and type : ldconfig ->Enter

regards
ticki

If I have time i make the Image and Upload it.

Re: OpenCPN Runs on Embedded ARM

Hello ticki,

thank you for your answer. Now I have copy the content but ldconfig returns this message:

Can't open configuration file /etc/ld.so.conf: No such file or directory

Do you have any hint?

best regard
alu

Re: OpenCPN Runs on Embedded ARM

Hi,

next try - uncompress the files on the beagleboard and everything is fine. Only the library libGLU is missing.
@ticki do you have compiled the lib?

Re: OpenCPN Runs on Embedded ARM

Hi Alu,
Bring your beagleboard to the Internet and try
opkg install libglu
If you Need more packages and you dont know the correct
Name use
opkg search
Heer you find help for opkg :
http://wiki.openwrt.org/doc/techref/opkg
It Seems that you Must install Some more Library,which i installiet in my SDK
(Maybe he will also Mesa)

Regards
Ticki

Re: OpenCPN Runs on Embedded ARM

Ticki,
Thanks for sharing your work. I am planning to run OpenCPN on a Beagleboard Xm when they become available again (in a couple of weeks it seems).
For those asking about displays, check out the link that nohal mentioned earlier. Looks like I'll finally get a Pixel Qi display on my boat. :-)
Here's another link to the Pixel Qi (with adapter to Beagleboard or Pandaboard) display:
Tin Can Tools :: All Products :: 10.1" Pixel Qi PQ3Qi-01 LVDS LCD Kit
