Re: Xinutop-nav, dedicated marine OS for x86

From Peter / Sweeden

Dear Mr Baudet,
I have been using Opencpn since 2010 on a Win XP laptop. I have seen
your work for some years and have finally decided to take the step to
Linux.
The main reason is that recent versions of Opencpn doesnt work fully on
WinXP (some wxwidget lack of support) causing Osenc plugin failure, and
also the detail function for vector charts doesnt work with osenc
charts.

My HW is a HP Compaq NW8000 wich has been realable in my boat since
2010. It is a 1,7GHz Intel MobileM processor, 2Gb RAM and a 30Gb IDE
SSD. It has the old more square format screen (1600x1400 pixels).

I successfully downloaded Marinux on USB following the instruction. The
Laptop run fine from the USB.

Yes, your harware is more than powerfull to run Xinutop

But I want it on the HDD (Conventional install) and have tried to follow
the instructions.

1. Language install
I have installed everything according to the instructions. I want
Swedish. The download etc was successful, but the language and keyboard
does not change.

Did you have restarted choosing "others languages" (see manual)

The instruction say
"NOTE: you can change your keyboard layout at any moment by
/menu/parameters/keyboard/layout."
There is no section with the name parameters in the menu (MENU button
down left). Where do i find the setting?

/menu/settings/settings_manager/keyboard

2. Move to HDD
I have a partition with the Win XP installation.
I have created a new partition (ext4) with name "Linux" successfully.

What is meant by
"Prerequisites:
- A running Linux box (target), can be powered by an another running
Xinutop."

My first issue is when defining SOURCE=....what is the source? I would
expect "/" since this is the USB, but the instruction say that "/" shall
not be used at the end..?

The mode described, the simplest way, is not convenient for dual boot or multipartition. Consider as it act like write in raw mode as you have made your first USB key. Simply the target is not the USB key but your disk/SSD. All will be erased !
For dual boot (really needed ?), it's more complicate. Grub4dos is one solution. Boot your XP with it, copy in file mode the content of the key in the ext4 partition and adjust boot4dos configuration to give you the choice of OS boot
.


If you can support me on my issues I think I can go forward by myself.

Thank you in advance!

Thanks for your interest about Xinutop !

Re: Xinutop-nav, dedicated marine OS for x86

From Petter

Hi again,

I have now been using the Marinux for desktop sailing. I have it on a
fast USB and it runs very stable, and fast. I'm really impressed how you
have simplified the introduction to Linux.

I have oeSENC charts for Sweden and try to get the oeSENC pluggin
installed, but get the respond as below. Do yo know what is the issue?

MARINUX@XINUTOP-X86:~$ SUDO APT-GET INSTALL OPENCPN-PLUGIN-OFC-PI
READING PACKAGE LISTS... DONE
BUILDING DEPENDENCY TREE... DONE
E: UNABLE TO LOCATE PACKAGE OPENCPN-PLUGIN-OFC-PI

I have also tryed the following without success:

MARINUX@XINUTOP-X86:~$ SUDO APT-GET INSTALL OPENCPN-PLUGIN OFC-PI

Kind regards


Hello Petter,

Thanks for your apreciations and encouragements.
Did you have make an "apt-get update" before "apt-get install" to create the database packages ?

Normally Xinutop contain all the plugins alvailable, and they need to be activated only. These missing plugins will be integrated in the next update.

Re: Xinutop-nav, dedicated marine OS for x86

I have updated the current version of Xinutop with OCPN 5. As a newbie I just followed the instructions for SW updates. It’s really easy.
