why e16 and not e17 ? e17 works great under angstrom


cuz i'm using E17 on my laptop and i think that it is a little too heavy for the Z (unless you choose a color only wallpaper, no window effects and so on...)
well, what's new on E ? new libraries: don't think it uses less memory or cpu (on my laptop it takes more than XFCE), wm overall look improved, new applications.
And that's buggy. (at least much more than e16 which is on a stable state) where are the advantages ? i don't care about using bleeding edge apps if i have to spend 3 times more to open a terminal smile.gif

but i'll certainly make a try wink.gif

did you try icewm too ? i wonder if e16/e17 is faster than icewm...

that's fast too. that's ahrd to compare the both... MHO, that's just a matter of choices

As my Debian EABI on my 3200 has been set up successfully and started making packages missing in the armel feeds, I am thinking of rolling up a new, fresh, and fully configured tarball, specially tailor-made for the yonggun kernels with the following ingredients:

1) Base = The January 07 EABI rootfs
+
2) apt-get dist-upgrade
+
3) 2or0's finetuning packages
+
4) The other configuration stuff in my after installation tarball

There are two big advantages AFAIK:
-- It can save new users a lot of time and frustrations setting up the system; no post installation step is needed except setting up network connection.
-- It will certainly work because it must be working on my machine in the first place.

If someone is interested (even if there is just one or two users) I will do it before the weekend.
So does anyone want it?


Is the EABI rootfs available for download?

Sorry for keep you waiting.

At first I was trying to create the tarball on my C860 from the ground up. But now it does not have a working (yonggun) kernel yet, and I was terribly busy over this couple of weeks. May try to do that on my 3200 this weekend.

No problem. Anyway i got my EABI debian installed smile.gif but with Angstrom 2.6.23 kernel instead of yonggun kernel.

Longing for playing with the Z w/ Debian! You'll save my life!

I did buy a new Sandisk 8G and tried installing again, but still got the same kernel panic issue. But I finally figured out what had been happening: I didn't press [2] while booting with uboot! So the issue is not CF related tongue.gif

[OT] not back to the place-you-know-where for some time, and only recently noticed you won't be back there. So see you here laugh.gif . My wife is getting better now but the health issue is on me though ...

The tarball is ready! It's 195MB big (close to 700MB when extracted, because it's fully configured and installed with many goodies). jpmatrix, may I upload it to your ftp? smile.gif

Finished uploading (in /uploads ). How can we access it?
Once the file is open for d/l I will post some instructions for using the tarball.
BTW, the other stuff in /uploads are not useful any more. So feel free to clean theme up.

This sounds interesting. You probably remember I had a kernel panic issue with Titchy due to the kernel not recognizing my A-Data 16GB internal. I'm guessing that this kernel won't either (though it would be handy). This raises 2 possibilities-- will u-boot handle my internal cf issue, and if not is there a reasonable way to do a 1000 style sd installation on a 3100 (and then use the internal cf as /home, or something like, ultimately)?

Also, how is the sound?

Thanks, jpmatrix! wink.gif
Added a short instruction in the first post for easy reference.

@adf: the A-Data card issue all depends on the kernel. But the rootfs tarball can be boot on the internal drive, SD and CF. I created this tarball on an SD and everything works. Sound plays well.
