The dev programs in Stretch's repo work well updateDVB. Qtcreator is a little weird setting up on the pi but it has always been that way. It would seem after all of this time the QtCreator people could get it more user friendly setting up the kit with arm devices.

Stretch is in development and you may run into a program not being in the repo. I have found that omxplayer and NetworkManager are not in the repo yet. It connects to the internet fine but I like the network manager to easily change things fast. I always use my computers as their own DNS server to try to bypass all of the spies that want to see where you are going so they can sell your info. I have also found that pulse audio would not load at login after I told it to do so in the start up config. I have it loading at login from a file in pi's home directory for now until they get it working right. That is all I have found so far after messing with it for 2 days. Just some little knit picking things I can live with until they get it firing on all cylinders.

The Stretch raspi-config does not have any options yet to bypass the login/password greeter gui to let you into the desktop enviorment also with the new LXDE desktop. There should be a way by uninstalling the greeter and specifing a login for pi with out a password in the DM but I have not got to that yet.

I have the new image ready to upload. I will do it over night and will post a link tomorrow mourning.

Here is the new Stretch image with kernel 4.11.0-rc7 that will work on the pi's 1, 2 and 3. Due to the extra files in the image I have stripped it as much as I could of some un-needed programs. I think the lxde desktop added more files and the install of repo's qtcreator pulled in just about all of the qt modules.

Due to the extra files added I created the image with only 80M of free space to keep it at the 1.9G size. The very first thing you have do is expand the root file partition either with gparted on your desktop or boot up the pi and run this and expand the partition:

sudo raspi-config
Choose expand the root partition
reboot the pi

Then you can run sudo raspi-config again and change your timezone.

Don't forget to add your mpeg2 license key in /boot/config.txt if you bought one

Download the image and extract the tarball:

tar -jxvSf rpi-123-stretch_411-rc7.img.tar.bz2

Burn the image to a sdcard. The whole card (sd? not sd??):

sudo dd bs=4M if=rpi-123-stretch_411-rc7.img of=/dev/sd?
sudo sync
Safely remove the card

The login and password is still "pi & raspberry"

UPDATE:

The New updated image with 180M more free space:

1.9G

Looks like an over night download. It's still smaller than a 2+G (Ubuntu Studio).

Thanks!

Good work DarkSky!

Screenshot_2017-05-18_08-40-10.png 

Only two hiccups for me.
1) Found that I had to use your un-tar procedure to get the .img.

2) On first boot up login; user and password just brought me back to login screen.
   Fix for me was to expand it with Gparted on desktop.

I did get into raspi-config and set up auto boot into Desktop. Worked great on reboot.

Did update and upgrade just find.
If any glitches appear will notify.

Thanks!
This message sent from RPi3 running Stretch![smile]

It is compressed with a switch to handle the empty space in an .image file and the graphical frontends does not handle it very well for some reason.

That is strange it worked here on my test burning the image. I guess the 80M free space will not be enough. Today is "Country go to town day" for the once a week groceries/business so today will be pretty well shot to create a new image and get it uploaded with more empty space.

UPDATE:

Thw new updated rpi-123-stretch_411-rc7.img.tar.bz2  image with 180M more free space link has been updated in post #647.

I did not see that as an option in raspi-config; either I over looked it or it updated in your apt-get update/upgrade. I will delete my previous post with the temp work around.

Thanks Andy for the heads up and let me know if you find any other issues. My "Partner In Crime" majortom has had a lot on his plate lately to help test so I did not ask him.

Ray,

For embedded work I have to give the edge to Stretch. Seems like pulse and pavucontrol are already in
this kernel. Pixel jessie is good but is more work to set up.

Flite 2.0.0 (text to speech) is down-loadable from "stretch's" repos. I still have to install the six voices though.

Julius 4.4.2 has to be installed but it's at git hub. Just "./configure" then "make" then "make install".
Would be nice to apt-get that one also.

Two of my SRE-TTS programs are working so far.

UpdateDVB works good with my 5925 .h264 only though.[smile]

Good deal. Thanks for testing.

If it was not having to test the images I probably would not buy a mpeg2 license either. All of the pi's stream good.

A little off topic but I thought this was interesting and did not know it:

"The code names of Debian releases are names of characters from the Toy Story films. Debian 8 was named Jessie, after the cowgirl in Toy Story 2 and Toy Story 3. The Testing branch is currently named Stretch, after the toy rubber octopus in Toy Story 3. The future release of Debian 10 will be called "Buster",  which is the real (not the toy) dog seen in Toy Story 2 and 3; Debian 11 will be called "Bullseye". The unstable trunk is permanently nicknamed Sid, after the emotionally unstable boy next door who regularly destroyed toys.

This naming tradition came about because Bruce Perens was involved in the early development of Debian while working at Pixar"

Thanks for the story Ray, wish more local and national news stories were like that.

Up loaded VLC on a wim, and used it in updateDVB, audio worked but video was one frame.
Hope the next RPi upgrade is with a GPU that is media player ready, would be worth $45 to me.[smile]

But even as it stands media is stream-able to local net and a person can do lots of embedded stuff.

Found a bug with Stretch on raspberry pi.

It concerns the "amixer" app.

On Ubuntu Studio 16.04 my "boswasi" program can change the volume by making a
program call "amixer -D pulse sset Master x%" x represents the percent of volume from 0-100%.

In Stretch on the RPi3 I have to call "amixer sset Master x%".

Stretch will not work with "-D pulse" and Ubuntu 16.04 will not work without "-D pulse".
Strange but pixel works either way[confused]

All have different versions of amixer:
Pixel v-1.0.28
Ubuntu v-1.1.0
Stretch v-1.1.3

Thought I would mention it in case someone is messing with audio on the Pi.

From looking at the amixer --help it appears you only have to use the -D if you are wanting to use something other than the default. Also I do not know if "N" stands for a number or name and Is pulse a device?

Code:

-D,--device N   select the device, default 'default'

Could be my h800 headset. In pavucontrol configure there are two devices bcm2835 and logitech.

Any how I figured out a work around that will get me to the next upgrade.

Two years ago ARM and Intel wouldn't have been this compatible![smile]

hi

I got some error in blindscan and spectrum scan for prof 7500 usb device in my RPi.

I did as per instructed here

I do not have a 7500 to test here. I did look at udl's stv090x.c and the one for the pi and they are identical and I use a device that uses dw2102.c and it is working. You did not post anything of you dmesg showing what is going on with your device when you first plug it in to see if there is an issue there. From what you posted I do not see any firmware loading up.

What does ls /dev/dvb say?

Also post how you set up the device in updateDVB Settings:

Majortom has a 7500. I do not know if he has had time to install the new image yet but maybe he can look at your kernel log after plugging in your 7500 to see if it is ok. .
