The hardware adaptation is maintained in the project [ home:mayerjosua

  • Linux 3.7.0 + OpenGL-ES on Framebuffer
  • USB Networking

Not working

  • Plasma Active GUI

Building a Plasma Active Image

An adaptation kickstart file can be generated from the plasma-active-kickstart repository:

mer-kickstarter -e . -c latest-devel/plasma-active-latest-devel.yaml -o plasma-active-latest-ks

To build an image from the result:

cd plasma-active-latest-ks
sudo mic create fs plasma-active-armv7l-gta04.ks -o . --arch=armv7hl --logfile=plasma-active-build.log

The generated filesystem in mic-output can be copied to any partition on the sdcard and then booted.

Current Issues

  • plasma-device uses 100% cpu and does not react to clicks on the screen.
  • Kernel Panic happens 50% of the time during boot.
