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)
ofono is available in the Mer repositories. Current version is 1.12. Since 1.6 the GTA04 modm is supported so this should work. There is an application qmlpinquery in the Mer repos which should work to enter the pin. I have yet to find out how to use it.
Enter the pin: modprobe hso qmlpinquery
