Mer on Openmoko Successor GTA04

This page details the steps required to bring up a development environment which can be used to create a basic Mer image.

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

  • OpenGl-ES
  • USB Networking
  • PlasmaActive

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 can be copied to any partition on the sdcard and then booted.


The System can be installed on any partition on sd-card, but 2GB space is a recommended minimum.

A working image can be found here. Just extract it to a partition on your sdcard.

Currently nemo-mobile-session is missing from the image, so GUI will not start. It can be installed over ssh:

zypper install nemo-mobile-session

After a reboot, PlasmaActive will start(but take a long time for it).

Current Issues

  • Kernel Panic happens sometimes while booting.
