The SysVinit-scripts can be installed and partly configured with the

Alternatively, they can be installed manually by using:

sudo make install_sysvinit

Poweroff Raspberry Pi after shutdown

Cut power from Raspberry Pi at poweroff:

  • The software includes some init-scripts which can tell the AdvaBoard to power-off the Raspberry after shutdown.

  • If you're currently using a micro-USB power supply connected to the Raspberry Pi, replace this power supply by a 5V power supply connected to the AdvaBoard RPi1.

  • optionally: edit /etc/default/am_rpi_power:

    • OFF_DELAY: time to wait in secons between shutdown and poweroff (default: 5)
    • EVENT_HANDLER_NUMBER: number of the power-event-handler (default: 1)
    • RTC_ALARM_NUMBER: number of the RTC-alarm for poweroff (default: 1)
    • ON_*: power-on/off-state of the components at boot
    • OFF_*: power-on/off-state of the components after poweroff
  • enable:

    sudo update-rc.d defaults
  • disable:

    sudo update-rc.d disable
  • Remove the red jumper "RPi5V" from the AdvaBoard RPi1.

Turn Raspberry Pi on/off with a button

Note:Since the installation and configuration of the display and the touchscreen is integrated into the AdvaBoard-setup-script, it's probably easier to use instead of the following instructions.

Start display/framebuffer/touchscreen automatically during boot:

  • Calibrate the touchscreen:

    sudo am_rpi_tft_tool -t TFT_32 -m TP_CALIB -f /etc/am_rpi_touchpanel.calib

    (replace TFT_32 by your display-type)

  • Edit the configuration-file /etc/default/am_rpi_framebuffer, to adapt it to your display-type, -rotation etc.

    You could also set USE_FB0=1 to use the default HDMI-framebuffer, and TP_MODE="1" to turn on mouse-emulation for the touchscreen (which seems to be necessary for SDL without X11).

  • enable (see also: man update-rc.d):

    update-rc.d defaults
    update-rc.d defaults
  • disable:

    update-rc.d disable
    update-rc.d disable
  • optionally: Configure X11:

    • Copy the included X11-configuration-file to /etc/X11:

      cp ../xorg.conf /etc/X11/
    • Select the desired X11 layout by editing /etc/X11/xorg.conf, e.g.:

      Section "ServerFlags"
          Option "DefaultServerLayout" "HDMI_FB"
    • If you use several framebuffer-devices, you may have to replace /dev/fb1 by the appropriate device.
