Default AIGO P8860 Support

Hi,

I have just got my AIGO P8860 MID device. It comes with midlinux by default. I was wondering what is the current level of support of ubuntu-mobile with this device, since i want to customize and develop apps for it.


Specifically, whether touchscreen, wifi and video acceleration is working

Regards
Aditya

Under jaunty, no, no, and no: touchscreen is closed and binaries only
available for older Xorg versions, wifi requires a proprietary module,
and video acceleration requires newer Poulsbo drivers.

Hi,

Found myself.
If it is of any help, I booted using the latest 8.10 image, it booted to the main flash screen. No support for the touchscreen, or even an external USB mouse for that matter. So i couldnt' go far.


Any chance of it being supported in future?

Regards
Aditya Vishwakarma

External USB mouse should be supported; the touchscreen has no chance
of being supported unless the upstream driver is released or someone
goes reverse engineer it.

Hi Aditya,you could use UME 8.04 which has both wifi , usb and touch screen support.I have tested it and its better than the midinux which comes with the device.
I suppose you are trying to*develop the moblin application for the contest.

I'm preparing a tutorial for setting up the dev env using the UME 8.04 and creating the image with help og image creator(i have compiled the image using it on my aigo ).I'll send it across this tomo.

Also below mentioned sites would be of more use to you.http://www.owendia.com/forum/aigo-p8860-mid/ubuntu-8-04/

to work, but it's hackish in that it's linked to libc.a

* Worked on NEON hwcaps support in the kernel also aimed at glibc; had

to request last minute inclusion of two (trivial) 2.6.29 patches and

discover later that the Babbage hardware we currently have has a broken

NEON implementation which allows some userspace programs to crash the

board; the kernel's NEON bits aren't affected though

Hello everyone,



Been subscribed to the list for awhile now, am interested primarily in just

running UNR on an old machine as a sort of under-powered test. *I was

wondering if anyone would be willing to point me in the right direction as

to how to create a bootable CD out of the thumbdrive IMG file that I've

downloaded. *Mounting loopback here is not actually going to help as the

tricky bit is actually writing the boot sector with the magic numbers to get

the thing to boot.



I'm not asking to hold my hand, but some pointers here would really help.



Regards,



Patrick

I'm not sure how to create an ISO image from it, but it is very easy to

copy this to a USB memory stick and make it bootable. *Just type "dd

bs=1024 if=jaunty-netbook-remix-i386.img of=/dev/<usb device>" (where

<usb device> is sda, sdb, etc - do not write it to any partition, use

the full device).



The img file is a vfat (fat32) image with a bootsector to load syslinux.

To make an ISO, you would first need to run mkisofs to make an ISO image

file, then mount both the ISO and the img file in loop and copy all of

the data over. *Then, make sure that isolinux is on the new ISO image.

I don't know the exact steps for that, but a 2G USB drive costs $10-$15

and is much faster and easier.

Weird, I thought the change was made to Ubiquity's desktop file so it

appeared in favourites too (I've seen it there before). I'll check

today's image and file a bug if that change has been reverted.

I believe there is a bug already filed about this duplicity. I think it

makes sense and I'll try and get it in this week.

I'm working on a report of my own as well, with a few additional issues so

far.

There are potentially two issues here:

I agree that the dialog is not beautiful. *I've not filed a bug for this,

but if you want to:

It does look a little strange. *I haven't filed a bug about it.
