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 [https://build.merproject.org/project/packages?project=home%3Amayerjosua home:mayerjosua
- Linux 3.7.0
- USB Networking
- PlasmaActive starts
- OpenGl-ES with X.org (DRI)
- PlasmaActive Apps
- Maliit keyboard
Building a Plasma Active Image
An adaptation kickstart file can be generated from the plasma-active-kickstart repository:
mer-kickstarter mer-kickstarter -e . -c releases/plasma-active-4.yaml -o plasma-active-latest-ks/
To build an image from the result:
cd plasma-active-latest-ks sudo mic create fs plasma-active-armv7hl-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.
PlasmaActive will take a long while to start!
- Apps crash on starting(files, browser, images, ...) (This is related to kwin and OpenGL which does not seem to work properly)
There is also a kickstart file that uses the PowerVR OpenGL-ES binaries as provided by TI The kickstart file is plasma-active-armv7l-gta04-pvr.ks It requires a softfloat build of Mer and PlasmaActive which is not available currently. Anyway the kernel was crasing during boot half of the times.
3.7.0 sadly does not support DRI (yet)
