Can anyone direct me to the latest version of Ångström (2008 or 2009)? I currently have 2007.12, but the packages from the feed browser are old for this release. I use to download images from http://www.angstrom-distribution.org/unsta...utobuild/akita/ but there are no builds there anymore. How would I use the 2008.x packages?

My searching did find this site for building images (http://amethyst.openembedded.net/~koen/narcissus/), but I am looking for Opie. I found it works well for a simpler interface and Cacko is a little dated.

Maybe I should learn how to compile an image for my C1000. Will search for some instructions, but if anyone can direct me quicker it would be appreciated.

Thank you

Hi,
you'll need to ask the angstrom people on their mailing list, they don't like forums!

everything here on angstrom is quite dated, so you'll have to hope you can find it in their wiki if they don't/won't help you on their mailing lists.

all that said, please do post back here with any results. we humble zaurus users are interested in what's going on in the world of angstrom, it's just we tend to keep a low profile to avoid being flamed! ph34r.gif

You have to build your own images, AFAICT, or use the online image builder:

Tried that...asked exactly the same question a week ago. They ignored me completely. I am really disappointed in them. Too bad the Pandora is Angstrom based.

Thanks guys. Checked out the Wiki and I am going to try to set up a build environment. The applications list has enough to make the attempt worth it. I will let you know how things come along. I am not a programmer so I have a lot of learning to do.

Their application list always looks impressive but it has been my experience that most of it is badly broken that combined with the attitude of certain members has completely soured me on the distro. I wish you the best of luck based on my experience; you are going to need it.

Thankfully, there's more to OpenEmbedded than just Angstrom. You can tailor it to your liking.

Yep and if a needed package is broken (e.g. incompatible old version), it is not that much of effort to include an updated version and rebuild it so that it works again.

P.S.: Hi Mickey, how is life ...

Hi Oliver, how are you? The recent Openmoko redundancies have left freesmartphone.org without funding, so we're currently looking for alternatives, but other than that everything is ok. I will write a book about Vala this summer and hopefully by the end of this year we have new funding and new hardware on the horizon... (always dreaming, you know) smile.gif
