Newbie Corner / Re: media edition:few issues
« Last post by mrsfixit on May 19, 2017, 03:41:54 PM »
mrsfixit,

I really wanted to fix this and get a really good working media edition. I think you may have missed the announcement a few weeks back about Manjaro-Arm shutting down as a whole. This is the main reason I have not been working on anything. There is some possible good news though. There is a small group of people interested in taking over the Manjaro-Arm project and continuing it in the same scope as I have started, or at least with the same underlying ideas. If the takeover is sucessful, all the current bugs (yours included) will be forwarded over and the new team will probably be glad to get it working.

I apologize for the 'cold sholder' feeling that you have received due to no response on this thread. As my life gets busier, my availability to work on this decreases. Unfortunately, that also meant posting on the forums. I hope that the new team is able to take over as I will still be able to advise and be an external source of information for them moving forward. I ultimately just want to see Manjaro-Arm succeed.

Thanks for giving us a shot and hopefully, you will again.

Hey dodge,
Yes, I did miss that announcement. I haven't checked here for a while.

Darn. I had hoped this would be fixed, but the new team taking the project up is good news.

I use Manjaro XFCE every single day on both my laptop and desktop, and I love it. It currently holds the record for the longest time I have continuously used ANY Linux distro- close to 3 years now.

For the little bit I used the ARM edition on the Pi- I liked it. It was much faster than OpenElec.

The interest in Manjaro is growing. I see it is now #3 over at Distrowatch. Impressive. I think that increasing popularity might bode well for the ARM edition. Fingers crossed!

Thanks for the info, and I'll keep checking back here periodically to what's up.  :)

Raspberry Pi 3 / Re: RPi 3 Running Manjaro off the Hard Drive

Booting off of an external HDD is quite an unusual setup.  While I know it is possible you might be better off asking on the official RPi forums in regards to this.

As for introductory videos, Spatry does a well recommended series based around x86 Manjaro but I do not know of any specifically for Manjaro-ARM https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL426FzyFBwBo_kwxfAwyKCKsviq54SfA0

Raspberry Pi 3 / RPi 3 Running Manjaro off the Hard Drive
« Last post by NYForbidden on April 22, 2017, 02:01:48 PM »
First and foremost hello everyone,

Today I setup Manjaro to boot off my external HD on my Raspberry Pi 3. The only problem I have at the moment is, after running the rsync command to transfer my image over the HD I tend to lose WiFi completely after I reboot. Manjaro is booting off my HD 100% but since I'm still a total noob at Linux and especially with Manjaro, I have no clue how to get my internal Wifi active again. If anyone have a clue what happen, can you please help resolve this issue. One more request, any good video course on Manjaro?

Thanks In Advance
NYForbidden

I agree, it should just work. Dodgejcr made the image, maybe he can tell you.

Can you create a bug report at bugs.manjaro-arm.org with as much info as possible?

Okay- done. We'll see what happens now.  :)

Well, after over a month of absolutely NO solutions or even answers, I guess I won't be using Manjaro-arm after all.

Too bad, because I liked what I saw for the short time I used it.  But the lack of help or solutions for what I think is a major issue is very disappointing. :(

Guess I'll check back in a few months to see if the issues have been fixed...

I am very glad to hear this.  I wish that I was able to be more constructive with things like this, but unfortunately I have barely dipped my toe into the world of programming and have no idea about how to do the work involved in maintaining a project like this.

I really hope this continues and if it does I wish the best of luck to the possible new maintainers.

Currently there are discussions happening in an attempt to continue Manjaro-Arm through a group of people that would have more time than I. Nothing is final however, we will continue these discussions until a resolve can be found.It is important to note that even though the Project will be shutting down, I will not delete anything and all the work that we did will remain on local backups until needed again.

I do not like to rush anything so as long as open discussion and planning is happening, I see no point in further stopping any Manjaro-Arm services at this point. What is already shutdown is shutdown but I can put the rest on hold until the group of people wanting to take over either decide to, or decide not to. Time is not important.

Thanks,
dodgejcr

I am so sorry to hear this.

I love Manjaro ARM. It is great.

I have been meaning to help out, but got distracted with other commitments.

I will volunteer to do builds and testing on a regular basis if you need me, just email :)

Thanks again for putting Manjaro Arm together. I would be more than honored to take over the Manjaro Arm project. I believe that I can also get more people together to help out with the project. What would be the best way to begin transferring knowledge and the process that you guys have put together?

Dodgejcr,

I am a great fan of Manjaro, and have installed Manjaro Arm on my RPi2.

I am sorry to see that the work of maintaining Manjaro Arm seems to be more than anticipated.

As a retired IT professional, I now have time to devote to other activities, and I would be willing to assist efforts to continue this project.  Because my career was spent as an application developer in corporate America, I do not have any experience in operating systems development.  Therefore, I do not know what contribution I could make to see Manjaro Arm continue, but I will just put my name in the list of potential worker bees who might make maintenance efforts easier on those who can contribute to the further development of Manjaro Arm.

Count me in!

Please email me (dodgejcr@manjaro-arm.org) and we can discuss what we might be able to do. If you guys are serious, we need to talk about what you can do and what you would want to do. Thanks


Also, I have updated some information about the repo situation. Currently, I am removing the mirror at repo.manajro-arm.org. The pacman-mirrorlist has been updated to reflect the removal of the mirror.
