I am trying to install IPFire for the first time on a Raspberry Pi 3. The installation process seems pretty straight forward, but I am unable to get the raspberry pi 3 to boot past the rainbow splash screen. I have had a bit of a google and tried a number of things to get IPFire to start up.
I have followed the guide on the IPFire wiki. Including changing the on the
and the raspberry pi I am using is a “Raspberry Pi 3 Model 3 V1.2”
So far I have tried:
Downloading the image file from the official site ( www.ipfire.org - IPFire 2.25 - Core Update 156 ) - Both the direct link and the torrent.
Flashed the image using Etcher and Rufus - Both ways hang on the rainbow screen.
Changing the power supply - Still hangs on the rainbow screen, will boot fine in to LibreELEC and Raspbarian.
I have tried to replace the kernel file with a working filek off the LibreELEC SD card - Same result, hanging on the Rainbow screen.
Using a different Raspberry pi 3 - Both raspberry pi’s hang on the rainbow screen, and will load LibreELEC.
Installed Raspbarian on to the SD card ( https://www.raspberrypi.org/software/operating-systems/#raspberry-pi-os-32-bit ) - Boots straight into the installation process.
I have had the idea that the SD card is corrupted suggested to me, however I am doubtful of this as it is a new SD card with very minimal use, and the fact that Raspbrian has been successfully booted from it.
I am open to any suggestions at this point.
Also has anyone successfully downloaded the image file and installed IPFire in the last couple of days? Is there a any chance the current image file is corrupt?
Thanks for sticking through the wall of text, looking forward to any suggestions.
