The Linaro project has a script that started as your setup_sdcard.sh
called linaro_media_create. As part of our release process we need to
have licenses for our files and since our script is based on yours,
your choice of license affects what choices we have. So long story
short, your file has no license included so care to add one or just
tell us what the license is so we can give our script a compatible if
not identical one?
I'd like to mirror and test the latest build of
but I have two issues with this:
* having some kind of direct link to the latest image so that I don't
need to parse the HTML to get the latest build; something like
/latest/ or /current/ would help here
* having a constant name for the data as to be rsync friendly; that is,
if the image is named linaro-m-headless-tar-20100923-0.tar.gz and
linaro-m-headless-tar-20100924-0.tar.gz the next day, it's hard to
convince rsync that the data file from the 24th can be mostly
inferred from the contents of the 23th; if it was named
linaro-m-headless-tar.tar.gz, I would have no problem
Where should I be filing bugs to track these requests, and who should I
harass to get these resolved? :-)
I finally got to this and wrote up a summary of the contents of the ST-E BSP
that we are mirroring on the Linaro git server:
I did not write up my recommendations of how to proceed, but it should give
an idea of the work in front of us/them.
Linus, if you see any significant omissions or mistakes, please correct me.
According to the Linaro release process  the maverick-proposed queue
will be frozen tomorrow. After this date no uploads should be accepted
for -proposed until the queue unfreezes on 8th November 2010 without
consultation with the Linaro release team . The total freeze time
will be 12 days.
The freeze process was agreed at the platform sprint in Prague and has
benefits for both Ubuntu and Linaro. This period should be used to flush
the -proposed queue, testing, verifying and promoting to
maverick-updates what is currently there. If you have an update that
really must be added to the queue in the next 12 days please email the
team for feedback.
The Linaro Release Candidate images will be created on the 1st November
and the images will be verified until Final Release on the 10th November.
With your help we can get the -proposed queue flushed and produce
rock-solid Linaro images, carrying the great work Ubuntu has done to more
ARM based platforms.
Linaro Release Manager
Looks like something is broken in the new kernel ( Post changes to the bug
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/663642 ), In the
earlier versions of the kernel atleast the S- Video used to work ( tested
in Maveric 188.8.131.52-l5 Regular/Non netbook edition ).
Now If I pass omapfb.mode=tv:pal omapfb.default_disp=tv .. the xorg exits
with with /dev/fb0 no such file or directory ( and ls -l on /dev/fb*
confirms there is no files by that name ),
I tried omapfb.mode=lcd:640x480 ( and other resolutions
), the X server starts but No out put on the screen / LCD tv thorugh S
The DVI port with default options ( and tried with different resolutions as
well ) connected through HDMI cable to the TV No output on the display in
any Distributions/OS/Kernel I have tried sofar.
I understand that Fixing DVI might take some time because there is a HW
change in Beagel Board XM A3, However I I would really appreciate if some
one point me how to get atleast S Video output till HDMI starts working
Miles to go before I sleep...
If you're like me, you're sitting here at the end of the last session of the
day feeling peckish and wondering what's for dinner.
Which made me realize that there was no information in the Linaro wiki page
about the dinner options here at Linaro@UDS. Sorry about that - let's
correct that now!
Outside of the Wednesday organized dinner, engineers are free to make their
own dinner plans - either here at the hotel, or in town. If you want to
have dinner in town, buses are available each evening to take you back and
forth to one of several points in and around Orlando that are reasonably
central to dining opportunities.
I've posted the bus schedule here:
