Hi, I downloaded the minimal local pack because local pack v.35 didnt work beacuse it always showed me this message when booting: dingux cannot run '/usr/local/sbin/main': No such file or directory , so I extracted everything from this pack hoping this would work, and again when it is booting this message appear: dingux cannot run '/usr/local/sbin/main': No such file or directory
9
I have eveything good, zimage, rootfs and all the folders from local in root including gmenu folder and main in sbin, so whats the problem??

Oh and this is the first time I use dingux (I installed the dualboot yesterday and it hasnt worked :(

Thanks


You can view my youtube video on how to configure your sd card and setup an emulator in gmenu here

Dang people are lazy. 'It doesnt work exactly the way I want out of the box so instead of learning I will just wait for someone else to do it for me and make it easier' The hype with DINGUX isnt hype. With dingux you have great emulators and better support than on the native os. Have fun waiting for good snes and megadrive emulators while people who do 10 minutes of research play their games with great compatibility and speed. Sorry if I sound like a dick but people that want instant gratification crack me up. If you change your mind I would be more than happy to help you out but only if you get a better attitude.
I agree.
Additionally, everyone who complains has to remember Dingux is solely a community work, where everyone who contributed did it for free and in his own precious time. Since we had no access to Dingoo's hardware documentation, everything had to be done with certain limitations. Also because of everyone's time being limited we had to use few already available solutions, like GP2X's gmenu2x.
Overall I think Dingux is a great job and is really easy in usage, just maybe not as plug-and-play as the Native OS. But if anybody wants Dingux to be more intuitive and easier in use, they can always donate some cash for the feature they'd like to see it and if it's enough, we'll implement it.

I tried the dinguxmb, and couldn't get an emulator to work, and yeah it's out of date. I went back to native. The gmenu is not for me. I shouldn't be picky cause I didn't make it, but I don't like it at all. It'd take more than changing the icon theme to fix it. Too cluttered, aggravating control scheme (using the shoulder buttons?), and in general dingux is too much work (for me) and configuring to get it personalized just for a game player. I didn't see what the hype is around Dingux. It may just be me, cause I really don't like any linux distros either. Guess I'll stick with native and hope for better snes and genesis emulators. Especially since alot of features (like tv out) have shady dingux support.

Lazy? No. I work 7 days a week. I have kids. I have other hobbies. Not about laziness, brother, or instant gratification. You're time of 10 minutes is way off. Properly researching takes over an hour because all the information (and latest updates) is scattered about the web. Then installing dual boot and dingux and your games takes longer (at least for a first time user). I'm a person who like simplicity and uniformity. snes and gen is 'playable' under native for me, and all the others work great for me. So I'll keep that and not have to worry about customizing it, or card corruption issues, or tv out support, or all the other things that don't work. I just want to play the thing, because that's what I bought it for. If by 'better attitude' you mean 'like dingux cause I do', I might change my mind one day. If I ever sounded like a dick, it wasn't intentional, Dingux just might not be for everyone. Thanks for the offer to help, I may need it one day.

Off topic, has anyone else watched Epic Meal Time's videos? That shit had me rolling.

Card corruption does not exist anymore with Sience's kernel. TV out works out and is in the minimal pack I created. The link to my channel has all the information and links to the files you need with explanations.  So you wont need to waste time looking for tutorials and all the files I upload in my pack are up to date and updated when needed. I'm not saying like DINGUX because I do. I'm just saying that people say things without having the facts because they weren't able to do something out of the box. I work as well and watch my nephew and nieces everyday until their mom gets home from work the I goto work myself. I understand that children take a lot of time but if you get the chance for some time to yourself try to get dingux installed . It really is worth it and is very easy to setup.

That issue was fixed a long time ago. It had to do with the sound drivers being updated on the rootfs or something like that.
Here is a link with those changes it will explain why the stuttering is gone.

Glad it works well for you ;)

I downloaded this local pack recently, put my emulators, games ando ports, everything fine, but I can't get mouse to work. What am I doing wrong?

I read every file in the folder, and noticed that the dingoo_keys.txt states:

UP   103, 1-0   //something is wrong: Up is 108

DOWN   108, 1-0   //something is wrong: Up is 103

but keymouse.cfg shows:

up=108:0:
down=103:0:

does this mean something? Any help?

Just create shortcut to startmouse.sh by yourself.

I updated the minimal packs with everything you guys requested. You can get it here: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=ZTY64OAJ

I downloaded it, and it's not really a "minimal pack", in my opinion there are too much apps (dosbox, dinimavie, gmu...).
Anyway thanks  :)
LOL the apps which come to 24 megs have been removed.  ::)

Here is the new pack
http://www.megaupload.com/?d=4BNRLQ4U
It should be updated with last gmenu2x:
https://github.com/uli/gmenu2x/downloads
btw before that update, my dingux tvout did not work.

Help: gmenu2x "statusbar flickering"

I'm using the latest gmenu2x version from uli (downloaded from: https://github.com/uli/gmenu2x/downloads) with this minimal local pack, but since then the statusbar of gmenu2x seems to be flickering when I'm switching between the sections and the applications.

So here's my question: Is this "statusbar flickering" normal from now on, or simply a bug? What can I do to prevent this or is there another solution? Do I need to use the gmenu2x version again, which was shipped within the latest minimal local pack?

best regards

The link to start the mouse is wrong.

1. Delete Mouse Icon it.
2. Create a new one Linking to startmouse.sh

Yeah I find it too, e.g. info ("i") icon is flickering sometimes... it is annoying but not so much. I thought it is some kind of lousy animation... On the other hand TV-out is working now so I don't care.

Hi there, sorry to be a n00b, but I need some help here (checked the help FAQ first, didn't get me too far)
New to attempt Dingux install, downloaded this:
I updated the minimal packs with everything you guys requested. You can get it here: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=ZTY64OAJ


and set everything up with the help of the dingoowiki.com site. Flashed teh A320 ok, installed files on SD ok, but when the Dingux starts to boots, it goes along for a bit, then has a kernal panic. The screen is flashing at this point, so it's hard to read exactly what's wrong, but it lists: FATAL: cannot mount /dev/mmcb1k0, /dev/mmcb1k0p1 on /boot (17)

Wondering if it's related to my LCD version(ili9338). No kernal included in your download for ili9338 so I've used to one suggested on dingoowiki.com

Any suggestions or tips? Really keen to get this working.

Thanks

It means it cannot find Dingux filesystem on the first partition. Perhaps there's some other partition on your card prior to the Dingux one, or the Dingux partition doesn't start from the first sector of the card. Reformat the card and see if the problem still occurs.
I have seen this problem before when people formatted the cards using Windows default tools. I'd highly recommend formatting on a Linux machine with cfdisk, if it's available.
But basically formatting the card and creating a partition which starts from the beginning of the card will fix the issue, use any tools that are able to do this :)

Bugger. I've tried reformatting a few times on my mac, but the same issue each time. Might have to find a friend with a Linux box.
Thanks for the help :)

You DO have rootfs on your card, right? Since that could be why it can't find it :)
