New raspberry pi OS released
#21
  Angry  Ooops, the Raspberry Foundation is going full backward and puts on line a Raspbian Buster Legacy due to many inconsistencies in their latest BULLSEYE !
 Ref. this article !
The only good point is that they keep talking of a 64 bit version !

The RaspiOS version 64 bits based on Debian Bullseye is running here very well. Also with the OpenPlotter add-ons.

The only thing that is missing is a working plugin for the Oesenc charts. You need two plugins. One for the normal OpenCPN and one for the flatpak version.

The plugin will be released after the introduction of OpenCPN version 5.6.0. This version is just released and works on my RPI 4.

The flatpak version of OpenCPN is not yet updated to 5.6.0. But it is early days after one day of this new release.

Just tried the updated flatpak version of RaspiOS based on Debian Bullseye 64. Now also running with OpenCPN version 5.6.0.

The Oesenc plugin for the flatpak version is also updated and running.

Not yet tried the OpenGl setting. OpenGL was not supported by Debian.

Now looked at the option of OpenGL. It seems that you have to install the following:

sudo apt install python3-opengl. And then switching on the Opengl setting in OpenCPN.

Now the screen is moving very fast. My hopes are this stays so. Otherwise I have to switch off the OpenGL stetting in the config to =0

Now RaspiOS 64 based on Debian Bullseye is running for some time with the OpenGL setting to on.

It works very well and is fast. All plugins are working. Now two version on the system: the basic OpenCPN version 5.6.0 version and the OpenCPN 5.6.0 flatpak version.

What an progress has been archieved. Running from an USB stick USB 3.1 Flasdrive with 64GB, Reading speed up to 300mb/s. Which is much faster then a fast SD card.

i have asked you before in cruisers forum but got no answer

Would you be so kind and explain why a C++ program like OpenCPN needs this Python module?

Hi Blacksea,

I'am only a user and like to test the latest developments. As far as I know OpenCPN is based on Python.

But I'am not sure abouty this.

Regards,

With the 64 bits Ubuntu Impish RPI version there was a problem with the usb ports. Now with the latest updates this problem is solved. Installed the GPS via the Serial OpenPlotter application, which works great with the connection to the SignalK server.

Now running with the GPS or NMEA2000 data and the Oesenc charts plugin.

But still with the beta Flatpak OpenCPN version.

With: flatpak remove org.opencpnOPN//beta you remove this version.

And with flatpak install org.opencpn.OpenCPN you get the latest OpenCPN 5.6.0 version.

Most of the OpenPlotter extra's also work on this Ubuntu Impish 64 bits version.

A new development has just started. The Ubuntu Jammy Jellyfish 64 bits version. This will become the LTS version. 


Already available for the RPI 64 bits systems.

It is still early days and probably an Alpha version.

But it works partly very well. OpenCPN 5.6.0 on basic and the flastpak version. But still with a memory leak.

SignalK is running. I have installed the OpenPlotter extras. Not yet tried.

Kernel version 5.13.0

Don't try this on the boat !
