Slackware ARM 14.1 on a Raspberry Pi
 
Hi Slackers <3

At FatDog.eu we have recently updated our Slackware ARM installer image (16 November 2013), which includes the latest current firmware files alongside Dave Spencerīs original installer. Weīve been reading reports lately that the newest version of the Raspberry Pi does not boot when using our old installer image (01 April 2013) so hopefully this new image will solve that particular issue.

The new installer has been thoroughly tested on Raspberry Pi model B versions (made in UK & China) with Slackware ARM 14.1 as the operating system. Everything seems to be working perfectly.

All comments, feedback and advice is more than welcome, as always.

Many thanks,

Installed slackwarearm-14.1 this morning using the new image from Fatdog.eu and it was flawless. Also followed the chronodot rtc guide and that went perfectly as well. The rtc is working as expected but when I type the 'i2cdetect -y 1' command it doesn't display '68' in the output, it displays 'UU'. Any reason for this and does it affect anything?

Cheers :P

Didnīt we just have this conversation? :D

The UU just means the driver for the ChronoDot RTC is using the i2c 0x68 address. If you unload the driver module 68 will be displayed instead of UU. Basically, UU indicates that this address cannot be probed because it is currently in use by a software driver (the rtc-ds1307 module in your case).

Try this...

root@myrasbox:~# rmmod rtc-ds1307
* You have just removed the driver for your ChronoDot RTC *
root@myrasbox:~# i2cdetect -y 1
* The output should display 68 *
root@myrasbox:~# modprobe rtc-ds1307
root@myrasbox:~# i2cdetect -y 1

* The RTC driver has been reloaded and the output should now display UU *
