Bunsenlabs Lithium for Raspberry Pi4

A specific version and ISO for Raspberry pi 4 is expected with the upcoming Bunsenlabs Lithium release, therefore an armhf based version. smile

This kind of requests have been answered several times:

ATM, the easiest way to get our current lithium system running is to install Debian buster and...

  sudo apt install bunsen-meta-all

Reboot and choose BunsenLabs via the login panel.

So, start experimenting with Raspbian.

Re: Bunsenlabs Lithium for Raspberry Pi4

Greetings from a long time lurker here and at #!.

This post encouraged me to get out my First Edition Raspberry pi, with 256MB RAM, and give lithium a run.

After a successful run of the experimental repository on a 64bit laptop: Experimental BunsenLabs Lithium repository has been set up  https://forums.bunsenlabs.org/viewtopic.php?id=5546 , applying same method, I booted Rasp-pi off a 4GB SD card with Raspbian Buster Lite (is a minimum install), flashed to it.

Add to /etc/apt/sources.list

deb https://kelaino.bunsenlabs.org/~johnraff/debian lithium main

Running

sudo apt-get update

failed with.

N: Skipping acquire of configured file 'main/binary-armhf/Packages' as repository 'https://kelaino.bunsenlabs.org/~johnraff/debian lithium InRelease' doesn't support architecture 'armhf'

I deleted the experimental repository line and did a successful update with this in place:

deb http://pkg.bunsenlabs.org/debian lithium main

   
However bunsen-meta-all was not found.

I amused myself by installing xinit, openbox, conky and dillo.

After some research I began to see/guess how lithium is developing out of helium.

My experimental (incorrect, but "worked") sources.list read:
   

deb http://raspbian.raspberrypi.org/raspbian/ buster main contrib non-free rpi
deb http://pkg.bunsenlabs.org/debian helium main
deb http://pkg.bunsenlabs.org/debian lithium main

Try again

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install --no-install-recommends bunsen-meta-all

No reported errors with update, the "all" download looked as if it might overwhelm my SD card.

Reading the bunsenlabs packages here: http://eu.pkg.bunsenlabs.org/debian/dis … f/Packages I used this install list, one by one, reading the output.   

bunsen-common bunsen-configs bunsen-keyring bunsen-meta-packaging bunsen-meta-vcs bunsen-os-release bunsen-welcome obmenu

It would have been more proper to use this 2 line sources.list:

deb http://raspbian.raspberrypi.org/raspbian/ buster main contrib non-free rpi
deb http://pkg.bunsenlabs.org/debian helium main

Continuing to use my original 3 line sources.list, http://eu.pkg.bunsenlabs.org/debian/dis … f/Packages seen, I also added

jgmenu

More correctly I should have replaced helium with lithium in 2 line my sources.list, producing:

deb http://raspbian.raspberrypi.org/raspbian/ buster main contrib non-free rpi
deb http://pkg.bunsenlabs.org/debian lithium main

and

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install jgmenu

However...
   
bunsen-thunar reported uninstallable dependency, libthunarx-2-0, (missing in buster, missing in sid armhf, available in stretch). I installed

thunar

.

First boot threw up: xsession warning xrdb command not found [note pre-installed and pre-run xnit might explain]. Walked away, bunsenlabs came up (< 6 minutes later). A similar warning is sometimes seen, after booting has completed to login screen, at first login.

I believe I created a "snapshot" which works today. I will now hash out both bunsenlabs entries from my sources.list. My expectation is that all updates && upgrades && installs will work from raspian. As an when, either bunsenlab repo could be restored judiciously.

Snappy would not be quite the right word, on 179MB RAM reported by conky, but it will be good for coding tuition and bunsenlabs behaves well, as always. OP mentions Raspberry Pi4, this test is with an earlier model, but Raspian images are not model dependent. It was nice that bunsen's www.browser and Super+W, hotkey got associated with (preinstalled) dillo, and no unworkably bloated browser was installed. Thanks for all the work that goes into bunsenlabs.

Re: Bunsenlabs Lithium for Raspberry Pi4

@dogwood: Lithium is not released at the moment. The armhf architecture is,as you noticed, only configured in the 'official' and to-be production lithium repository, however, as of now, no significant amount of packages has been migrated from johnraff's experimental repository to the official repository. The future lithium repo will support armhf. The experimental repo does not (and should not expected to).


@johnraff if you're interested in supporting the armhf arch, since you only have arch-independent packages, it is sufficient to add

Architectures: i386 amd64 source armhf

in reprepro and reexport (reprepro export lithium) the changed distribution in order to create the required files in the APT respository.

Sorry, just noticed you also ship jgmenu which is binary.

Re: Bunsenlabs Lithium for Raspberry Pi4

^Is jgmenu 3.5 available as armhf from the official repos (eg helium)? If so I could drop it from the experimental and add armhf arch. as you originally suggested.
