Description

This can be used to modify the base configuration to suit Xeon. The installation script applies the system changes. The changes need to be checked to make sure they are not already applied or that re-applying them doesn't create duplicate configs.

The things I know I need are as follows.

  1. Add CCW rotation to xorg.conf:
    Option "Rotate" "CCW"
  2. Disable SMB
    1. move init script
    2. Make it configurable in piboxd (defaults to on) and update /etc/piboxd.cfg
  3. Disable registration processor
    1. Make it configurable in piboxd (defaults to on) and update /etc/piboxd.cfg
  4. Disable webcam processing (disallow requests)
    1. Make it configurable in piboxd (defaults to on) and update /etc/piboxd.cfg

pibod can be modified with the following config file (/etc/piboxd.cfg):

NOSMB:1
NOSTREAM:1
NOIOT:1

That will disable both of the threads that handle smb probing (which happens often and chews up resources) and streaming (which we don't do much of but we don't need the extra thread) and IoT registration processing (which is a thread that runs all the time). So that should make piboxd a bit more lightweight for Xeon.

Created xeoncfg repo to generate the package. This has a postinst script that updates both piboxd.cfg and xorg.conf. Package has been added to metabuild.

Still requires installation testing.

  • Status changed from In Progress to Closed
  • % Done changed from 50 to 100

A few minor problems with initial testing on hardware but those are now fixed. All changes tested, committed and pushed.

Closing issue.
