I guess your system just overloaded, either CPU or RAM. Did you setup swap?

I might have, how would I check? Also, I don't think that is the issue, because it isn't frozen, the screen saver comes on and runs fine.

Code: [Select]
cat /proc/swaps
Try to run just xterm with twm in the X session and then start lxpanel and the rest one at a time to find the cause.
If you can't find the cause, it's either lxsession or openbox.

Hey all, can someone tell me if there are certain usb hub chips that work really good with nspire linux?
my CX has been revived :) and while i have virtually no time next to school i wanted to make a little top mounted module,
witch includes 1 micro-SD card slot and 3 usb ports, and a power inlet, for the hub and if possible to charge the calc.

Is it possible to get the power form the second port on top of the calc?

This thing will probably never exist but i might..
I have to design a pcb for school so i might just trow this in as a learning project.

Sounds very interesting :)

I wonder if you would mind if I stole your idea and have a crack at it myself as well?

I thought it'd be cool if someone took one of these: http://www.datamath.org/Graphing/NSpire_CX_WNA.htm and put a tiny USB hub in it with a built in flash drive for linux

I think that's what floris497 was suggesting. I'll look into designing one.

So, i tried to follow Ivoah's blog about how to install debian on a nspire as best as i could, problem is i run into this screen I tried connecting the flash drive with a usb hub, without the usb hub and even disconnecting the flash drive completely (just to see what would happen) I also tried re-doing steps 1 - 9 on his blog post and i keep seeing this screen.

I didn't use debian, i used linux mint to work on the flash drive, didn't think it'd make much of a difference
I'm on version 3.1.0.392
This calculator is a normal nspire cx but i installed the cas version into it.

Can you post the exact contents of start_usb.ll2.tns file? (It's just a text file, open it in a decent text editor (not notepad))

Your linuxloader is too old, it does not know the dtb command.

I've been trying to compile the latest mainline kernel for my Nspire (4.7-rc2) but I have, to be honest, failed miserably so far in getting the correct configurations. Would anyone have a .config file for building a working kernel for the CX CAS? Using the older kernel I managed to get OpenBox running and other cool things, but  I couldn't get any drivers to load using an ArchLinux ARM rootfs, so none of my 2 USB Wi-Fi modules nor an Apple keyboard I had lying around worked.

mmm, I wonder if it does make sense running linux on a pocket calculator since you don't have the CAS software on linux  :w00t:

why do you want it, guys ?
