    I just posted an updated USB boot image:

    http://www.sodface.com/repo/Alpine-3...-Veyron.tar.gz

    No new alpine release yet but I wanted to update the kernel, now at 5.15.27.

    //edit, this kernel was cross compiled for armv7 on x86_64. It boots for me but I haven't done extensive testing with it. I think I've worked it out so I can shutdown my native builders and just cross compile or use qemu-user to build kernels and maintain the few packages I host for different architectures.

    FYI, I put together a folder indexing script this weekend to enable browsing of http://www.sodface.com/repo/

    I am also trying to do a bit of cleanup and rearranging there, breaking previously posted links in the process, unfortunately. I've moved the Aopen Chromebase / Chromebox USB image and any other related files to:

    http://www.sodface.com/repo/index/aopen-veyron/

    Note that the above link is meant for browsing. Direct links to files do not include the "index" portion of the path, for example:

    Here's a Chromebase mini mounted in my '07 Jeep Cherokee. I have no idea how to take a good picture of the screen but just trust me that it's not blurry in person. I still have a bunch of stuff to do on the software side but the audio quality and dash mount I'm pretty happy with.

    love the fit of the Chromebase, it looks like it was designed for the car.
    Did you adapt the audio wiring to HDMI to connect?

    Thanks! I used the 3.5mm headphone jack and the CHTO-01 adapter which tells the factory amp to turn on over the canbus. A pic of the wiring is below. I was originally just going to use the terminal strip for testing and solder the connections once I was finished testing but decided to just stay with the terminal strip as it was doing the job well. I'd purchased a 12V to 19V step-up module and had it wired in at first but then discovered that the Chromebase will take 12V in so I removed it and power is now coming straight from the CHTO-01. The headphone jack is only 2 channels and I have it feeding both the front and rear connections to the amp, so I have no fader control. I could add a little usb headphone dongle and have a second output which would allow me to vary the volume to each to act as a fader. We'll see, right now I'm fine with it and I think it sounds good.

    Also, I have a USB GPS antenna hooked up and working.

    Got the Aopen to boot into Linux but…

    Hi sodface.
    Hopefully it has an easy solution.

    The chromebase was already in dev mode when received so I checked that hardware Wi-Fi and Ethernet is working.

    I got boot up but when I tried to “setup-alpine” with network connection and ssh I made an error - I didn’t delete the ssh authentication file so setup all errored out afterwards.

    I tried again with recovery chrome usb and returning to dev mode for reinstall.

    I disconnected Wi-Fi as I wanted
    setup-alpine -q which needs Ethernet.

    But dhcp failed and the “clock skew” error so the repo also failed.

    I remember seeing Ethernet on previous boot 192.168.0.68 so it looks like it will work if I find the file that is messed up.

    I'm not 100% following what steps you did but first thing on boot, make sure the system clock is set correctly as there is no hardware clock.

    // edit, I mean set the clock manually with the date command before you do anything else.

    // edit2, the jivelite packages at sodface.com are built withe sdl12-compat and I'm seeing some issues with it. See:
    https://github.com/libsdl-org/sdl12-compat/issues/208

    I'm hoping that it will get resolved but I might have to go back to pure sdl 1.2 builds. Let me know what your plans are for the chromebase and if you are using my packages or doing your own thing.
