Automation Linux distributive of the project OpenSCADA Mar 2012 Implemented in these repositories of the Automation Linux distributive and these Live builds are provided now for the branch Work and LTS: Roman Savochenko AutoDistr-ico.png
Description
The Automation Linux distributive of the project OpenSCADA representing, tracing and managing. Currently based on the Debian Linux.
  • Debian 11, 10, 9, 8, 7:
PROPERTIES:
  • Architectures: x86_64, x86_32
  • Booting to: Live; Live filesafe; Live for languages "Ukrainian", "Russian", "German"; Install; Graphical install; Hardware Detection Tool (HDT); Memory Diagnostic Tool (memtest).
  • User data storing into the EXT partition "persistence".
  • Live properties: OpenSCADA; TDE; All Linux kernel firmwares also non-free for most drivers from the Box; GParted and other partition management tools.
TESTED ON: Virtual Box, Intel Core i7-5600U, AMD A8-6500 APU, Intel Core i3 CPU U 380, Intel Atom N270, P3, K6-2 (only for 7)
KNOWN ISSUES:
FIX => The problem is a disadvantage of the memory allocation arenas, linked to threads, which causes to such sort inter-arenas memory fragmentation on high dynamic using, what recreate the threads. As a workaround there is globally used the environment variable MALLOC_ARENA_MAX=1 to set the arenas number to 1!
  • [Debian 10] PulseAudio is missing in KMix
FIX => KMix was made dynamic by the patch "kmix-UpdMixersForChangeAndChMaster.patch".
  • [Debian 11,10,9,8] The plymouth — the console starting splash images, locks the console screens but it doesn't stop on systems with "systemd" and /var/boot.log infinitely grows.
FIX => TDM switched in the SDDM mode then plymouth stops now after TDM start.
FIX => We need to append in the file /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf for these lines:
[device]
wifi.scan-rand-mac-address=no
FIX => Resolved as a regression or the security level rising in "wpasupplicant" of the version 2.4 (or OpenSSL 1.1). Workaround by the downgrading to version 2.3.
FIX => Resolved as a bug of the video driver Radeon in enabling DPM by default. Workaround by the Linux kernel argument "radeon.dpm=0".
  • Impossible to switch the keyboard language layout from the keyboard.
FIX => Wrong boot argument "keyboard-options" value.
  • ALTLinux 6:
PROPERTIES:
TESTED ON: Virtual Box, Intel Core i7-5600U, AMD A8-6500 APU, Intel Core i3 CPU U 380, AMD Turion L625, Intel Atom N270

Of while for the project OpenSCADA was needed to create specialized builds of Linux environments kind of PLC firmwares, Live and installation disks for Automatic Work Places (AWP) and rapid familiarization of the OpenSCADA program. In begin it was enough to use standard Linux repositories, firstly it was ALTLinux and currently it is Debian. But in a reason of the need of fixing, updating and rebuilding for some packages of the Linux distributive, there was created own repository of this packages together with the OpenSCADA packages.

1 Debian

Actuality: 2014...NOW, main package base of the project distributive for now
Repositories:

Distributives-solutions:

The Debian distributive in using of the author Roman Savochenko and for the Automation Linux distributive started from version 7 (Wheezy) into year 2014 as replacing of the previous packages base on ALTLinux.

The Automation Linux distributive as the package repositories is represented by Live/Install/Service disks which are built by the Debian Live project. The procedure of creating the firmware from the Live-configuration is the following:

# Clean up of the previous building data
$ lb clean --purge
# Building of the image
$ lb build

2 ALTLinux

Actuality: 2008...2014, used into the automatic builder for some solutions compatibility
Repositories:

Distributives (solutions):

The ALTLinux distributive was used by the author Roman Savochenko from version 3 and for the Automation Linux distributive it was been adjusted from version 5.1. Into year 2014 for the Automation Linux distributive and other there was started the process of moving to the Debian package base, mostly by reasons into the appendix.

The Automation Linux distributive as the package repositories is represented by PLC-firmwares and Live/Install/Service disks which are built by the tool mkimage for creating the distributions of ALTLinux. mkimage is a tool for building Sisyphus-based system on basis of a template. As an initial set of templates there was taken the set of templates of formation of ALTLinux distributions at "git://git.altlinux.org/people/boyarsh/packages/mkimage-profiles-desktop". The procedure of creating such firmwares from the image is the following:

# Creation the configuration script configure
$ ./autoconf
# Configuring of the builder to generate the disks' images
$ ./configure --with-imagetype=flash
# Building of the image
$ make plc.cd
