resize an raspi sd card image

losetup -f –show my.img
-> we have now mounted image as loop0

partprobe /dev/loop0
-> we have now the partitions which is required for gparted

gparted /dev/loop0
-> resize as usual now and apply

losetup -d /dev/loop0
-> loop not needed anymore

fdisk -l my.img
Platte my.img: 8068 MByte, 8068792320 Byte
255 Köpfe, 63 Sektoren/Spur, 980 Zylinder, zusammen 15759360 Sektoren
Einheiten = Sektoren von 1 × 512 = 512 Bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Festplattenidentifikation: 0x000981cb

Gerät boot. Anfang Ende Blöcke Id System
my.img1 8192 122879 57344 c W95 FAT32 (LBA)
my.img2 122880 15759359 7818240 83 Linux

so, end is at 15759359 (*512 bs)

truncate –size=$[(15759359+1)*512] my.img

this should work now. if not, let me know.

new created SD card can resized then again with gparted.

fritzbox 7390 – module building – MIPS_24K vs MIPS32_R2

just change arch/mips/include/asm/module.h


building modules for a different system is not always an easy task.
required information’s and where to get:

1. cat /proc/cpuinfo to find out what kind of cpu (mips,arm,sh4 etc)
2. file busybox – any elf file and find out if LSB or MSB , also CPU type should be there.
3. get crosstool-chain prebuild or build one yourself -> crosstool-ng
4. get the kernel sources -> cat /proc/version / uname -a
5. make mrproper, make menuconfig, make < - after this you should have all required files like Module.symvers and .config 6. go in your module directory and create your makefile: obj-m += hello.o

make -C /lib/modules/$(shell uname -r)/build M=$(PWD) modules

make -C /lib/modules/$(shell uname -r)/build M=$(PWD) clean

type make, close your eyes and press enter…

make(-file) modules

obj-m = ati_remote.o
KVERSION = $(shell uname -r)
make -C /lib/modules/$(KVERSION)/build M=$(PWD) modules
make -C /lib/modules/$(KVERSION)/build M=$(PWD) clean

valgrind and gprof – performance messure tools

to create a graph of all call from your executable, use valgrind:

valgrind --tool=callgrind --dump-instr=yes --simulate-cache=yes --collect-jumps=yes program arguments

then open in kcachegrind (also available for Windows)


gprof: you need to compile with -pg. then a gmon.out file will be created.

open that file with:

gprof program gmon.out > gprof.txt
gprof program gmon.out | less

cross compile – configure script

./configure CC=mipsel-unknown-linux-gnu-gcc CXX=mipsel-unknown-linux-gnu-g++ –host=mipsel-unknown-linux-gnu –prefix=/opt/tools/mipsel-unknown-linux-gnu/mipsel-unknown-linux-gnu/sysroot/usr/ CPPFLAGS=”-mhard-float -march=mips32 -mtune=mips32 -ffast-math -ggdb”


download last pack from
[21:24] hg clone
cd crosstool-ng
./configure –enable-local
./ct-ng help
./ct-ng menuconfig
./ct-ng build

thanks speedy, always looking for it 🙂

Digital portable power supply atmega168

1.25V – 30V 1A CC and CV.

powered by a 9V block battery if you like or up to 30V DC input. short safe due to CC. Limit your mA and it then the max CC.
