Hi All,

I downloaded:
http://mirror.CentOS.org/altarch/7/isos/armhfp/
for the PI3

This article says the PI3 runs X. http://news.softpedia.com/news/CentOS-7-linux-officially-released-for-raspberry-pi-2-banana-pi-and-cubietruck-497891.shtml

When I groupinstall Gnome desktop and reboot, then run startx I get an error about no screens found.

Whats the trick to get X on the PI3?

Thanks,

Jerry

  • Yikes… What sense does that make??? (rhetorical really)

    So does that mean we have to install a binary driver like an NVIDIA driver set?
    If so where is that located ?
    I have not found it.

    Thanks,

    Jerry

  • Well, nothing on our (CentOS) side claims that X was working. Technically a lot of pkgs were built, but all images are minimal. If you’re intestested into armhfp/aarch64, can you consider subscribing to the dedicated arm-dev list
    (https://lists.CentOS.org/mailman/listinfo/arm-dev) and start a thread there ?

    I don’t remember if someone already tried to have X working on such armhfp boards (with CentOS pkgs that is)
