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:
  • Debian 9: x86_64, x86_32 (without guest Virtual Box)
  • Debian 8: x86_64, x86_32
  • Debian 7: x86_64, x86_32
  • ALTinux 6: x86_32 (only for compatibility of the old solutions)

Description
The automation Linux distributive of the project OpenSCADA representing, tracing and managing. Currently based on the Debian Linux.
  • Debian 9, 8, 7:
Properties:
  • Architectures: x86_32, x86_64.
  • 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; Guest Virtual Box (excluding Debian 9 x86_32 because this compilation needs the int128_t type); GParted and other partition management tools.
Tested on: Virtual Box, Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-5600U, AMD A8-6500 APU, AMD Turion L625, Intel Atom N270
Known issues:
  • [Debian 9] Rebooting just in the Linux boot for AMD APU, detected on AMD A8-6500 APU.
FIXED => 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 language from the keyboard.
FIXED => Wrong boot argument "keyboard-options" value.
  • ALTLinux 6:
Properties:
Tested on: Virtual Box, Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-5600U, AMD A8-6500 APU, 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 reason of needs to some packages of the Linux distributive fix, update and rebuild there was created own repository of this packages together with OpenSCADA packages.

1 Debian

Actuality: 2014-present, main packages base of the project distributive for now
Repositories:

Distributives-solutions:

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

The Distributive of the Automatic as the packages repositories is represented by Live/Install/Service disks which build 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 has used by the author Roman Savochenko from version 3 and for the Distributive of the Automatic it has adjusted from version 5.1. Into year 2014 for the Distributive of the Automatic and other there was started the process of moving to the Debian package base, mostly by reasons into the appendix.

The Distributive of the Automatic as the packages repositories is represented by PLC-firmwares and Live/Install/Service disks which build 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 it 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 the firmware 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

SSH client connection by a key does not all times with the authentication request. + -
Allows for configuration and some selection during the package installing. + -
Correct working of the commands "$ apt-get autoremove" and "$ apt-get reinstall". + -
TDE R14 allowed in ready to use the packages and repositories. + -
Support of the mostly known hardware platforms. + - (only x86, x86_64 and ARM from version 7)
Accessing to SWAP after installing from the Live. + -
Disabling to format the allowed SWAP, then preventing to change the UUID, for multiple Linux installing. - -
Working the fglrx-legacy. + 7,Wheezy (Kernel 3.2 and XOrgServer 1.12) - T6 (Kernel 3.0-mostly broken and XOrgServer 1.10)
Absence of the system connection, from EtcNet, which impossible to be removed into NetworkManager. + -
Install and compact store only needed and selected locales' data. Too useful for embedded systems! + -
The keyboard layout variant "ruu" presenting in general way. + -
