Hello,

Just another rootfs to play while waiting for the next cortez release smile.gif

Upgraded "Zubuntu 1.0 Rc1" (Handhelds' Mojo Ubuntu Hardy 8.04 [Hasty]) to "Ubuntu Jaunty 9.04 ARMEL".
Repository: http://ports.ubuntu.com/dists/jaunty/


Screenshot

One can install the linked rootfs or upgrade from the original cortez-rootfs.

Post UPDATES:
- all questions in Zubuntu Rc1 thread apply to this rootfs.
- for 760-860 zaurii read following posts to fix touchscreen and keymap bugs.
- removed "lost+found" folder from rootfs, my fault. sorry. new rootfs linked.
- installed, disabled and put "on hold" the package apt-xapian-index (eat too much resources).
- added recomendation about checking bad block before install.

________________________________________________________

BACKUP your existing system.
For an SD card, "halt" zaurus and from your linux pc with the sd card mounted, type:
CODE
cd /media/sdcard
tar --exclude="lost+found" -cpf ~/zubuntu-backup.tar .

________________________________________________________

INSTALL instructions available in Omegamoon and use this "zubuntu-desktop root filesystem"

zubuntu-desktop-jaunty-rootfs_feb.2009-rev-armel.tar.bz2
MD5: 274d5f798e05e2fa1da85c941203bae3
Uploaded: 02/16/09
File Size: 98.06 MB (Extracted: ~375 MB)

- After formating and before extracting the rootfs, you should check and mark bad block in sd card:
CODE
fsck -fcp /dev/sdb1
where /dev/sdb1 is the partition of your SD card
- How to extract the .tar.bz2 file:
CODE
tar xpjf zubuntu-desktop-jaunty-rootfs_feb.2009-rev-armel.tar.bz2 -C /media/sdcard

- Remember to add the kernel and modules from Omegamoon and edit /etc/fstab.
- Boot and
CODE
apt-get update
apt-get install fennec abiword gnumeric geany xtightvncviewer x11vnc xournal cellwriter pidgin ...

- Has a "fake" boot splash. To disable it add "psplash=false" in /boot/kernel-cmdline.
- "Home" key is Terminal launcher, "Mail" key is WiFi toggle, "Alt+`" is F11 [fullscreen].
________________________________________________________

UPGRADE your existing "Zubuntu 1.0 Rc1":
1. in files /var/lib/dpkg/status and /var/lib/dpkg/available
replace all "Architecture: arm" with "Architecture: armel"

2. in file /etc/apt/apt.conf add:
QUOTE
APT::Architecture "armel";
Dpkg::Options:: "--force-architecture";

3. in file /etc/apt/sources.list remove everything and add:
QUOTE
#9.04 Jaunty Jackalope
deb http://ports.ubuntu.com/ jaunty main restricted universe multiverse
deb http://ports.ubuntu.com/ jaunty-updates main restricted universe multiverse
deb http://ports.ubuntu.com/ jaunty-proposed main restricted universe multiverse
deb http://ports.ubuntu.com/ jaunty-security main restricted universe multiverse

4. then
CODE
apt-get update
apt-get upgrade

Any performance difference between Hardy and Jaunty?
Notice you have pdaxrom in your sig - have you got it dual booting with Zubuntu by any chance?

I installed fvwm/icewm/openbox/matchbox on Zubuntu - they all run fine - just cant decide which is the lightest....

Does Jaunty have thunderbird working? What version is Firefox at?

Sorry for some many questions......
thanks

seems to be equivalent

i use kexec to boot pdaxrom, see debian andromeda (2or0) setup

icewm is more than enough for a zaurus, the screenshot is an icewm with modified icebuntu theme for the zaurus

thunderbird segfaults, firefox versions are 3.0_3.0.6 and also 3.1_3.1~b3 but i would use midori, arora, epiphany-gecko or epiphany-webkit since firefox is too much but starts and runs (both versions).

NOTE: (apt-xapian-index disabled in rootfs) if you install firefox, as well as other apps, eventually the package system will install apt-xapian-index which has a process called update-apt-xapian-index that will eat all resources while rebuilding some index list in the background, better to kill the process and rename it to avoid being triggered again in the future. or first install apt-xapian-index and disable it.

Hi,

I installed it in on my CL-760 (a partition on the SD card booted with kexecboot) and I have the same problems as with the cortez release:

Ubuntu boots fine and I can use it in cli mode but I can't input anything (neither with the stylus nor with keyboard) in the GUI

The only keys that work are CTRL-ALT-Backspace ...

regards

Bernd

This sounds like what happened to me yesterday when I tried to startx as a non-root user on cortez' Ubuntu. I just got a completely blank screen with an eratic arrow. blink.gif

CTRL-ALT-backspace got me back to the command line. startx works fine as root.

Hello,
I am trying to install Zubuntu on my C3000. I have followed Cortez guide as well as this one, however multiboot kernel deosn\t seem to find the files to boot off the compact flash card. First I had a Debian system installed on the internal MD and it found it, mounted it but gave an error that it could not find the kernel. However it then tried the compact flash but the only message I got was as shown below. I then removed the Debian distribution and it\s partitions and I get the same error now less the successful mount of the internal MD yet still no boot:

Probing /dev/mtdblock0
Probing /dev/mtdblock1
Probing /dev/mtdblock2
found /dev/mtdblock2 (jffs2)
mount successful
/dev/mtdblock2 no kernel found, unmounting
Probing /dev/mtdblock3
Probing /dev/hda
Probing /dev/hdc
/dev/hdc: No such file or directory
Probing /dev/hdc1
/dev/hd1: No such file or directory
Probing /dev/hdc2
/dev/hdc2: No such file or directory
No bootable device found

Btw I never get the menu.

Anyone have any ideas waht si going wrong. I have tried two different CF cards. Also I have tried Using only Cortex 8.04 guide/files and using these files in this thread. Same result.

BerndS: i don't have acces to a 760,
but from command line, does the ts_calibrate program work?
if not:
1) do a grep -i handlers /proc/bus/input/devices
and check the second line starting with a "H: Handlers="
2) then grep TS ~/.profile
this line should have the same event* as the previous command
if it's not the same, nano ~/.profile and change the TSLIB_TSDEVICE line and specify the proper device
3) then logout, login, and run ts_calibrate again
4) if it doesn't work, try editing /etc/ts.conf and uncomment (remove the #) at the line module_raw corgi and run ts_calibrate again

bobey: you need to extract two files, with a z 3000
1) the kernel an modules: http://www.zaurus.org.uk/cortez/ubuntu/dow...addition.tar.gz
2) and the desired rootfs

I think "apt-get dist-upgrade" would be a better upgrade option than"apt-get upgrade," but I'm not entirely sure.

Hi,

>>BerndS: i don't have acces to a 760,
>>but from command line, does the ts_calibrate program work?

No, it fails with

ts_open: No such file or directory

>>if not:
>>1) do a grep -i handlers /proc/bus/input/devices

H: Handlers=kbd event0 apm-power
H: Handlers=event1

>>and check the second line starting with a "H: Handlers="

export TSLIB_TSDEVICE=/dev/input/event2

>>2) then grep TS ~/.profile
>>this line should have the same event* as the previous command
>>if it's not the same, nano ~/.profile and change the TSLIB_TSDEVICE line and specify the proper device

changed to

export TSLIB_TSDEVICE=/dev/input/event1


>>3) then logout, login, and run ts_calibrate again

works

Restarted X and now the Stylus works in X!

But the keyboard still does not work while X is running (excpet CTRL-ALT-BACKSPACE) ...

>>4) if it doesn't work, try editing /etc/ts.conf and uncomment (remove the #) at the line module_raw corgi and run ts_calibrate again

Tested this also:

ts_calibrate
xres = 640, yres = 400
ts_read: Invalid argument


One other (very) minor issue:

After the installation the GUI started in Portrait mode. Therefor I removed the line

xrandr -o right

from the .xinitrc file . Now the GUI starts correctly in Landscape mode (hopefully I did not mix the Portrait/Landscape here ..)

The boot messages are also correct but the initial graphical Ubunutu logo is still in the wrong mode -- can this be corrected?

Thanks

Bernd

BerndS: edit /etc/ts.conf and comment (add the #) at the line module_raw corgi, this step was just in case the previous steps haven't worked.

if C+Alt+S works, the keyb is up under X? seems wrong keymap loaded in (.xinitrc)
the line test -f uses the reply of the grep Hardware /proc/cpuinfo, try hardcoding it (replace $HARDWARE with one given by ls /etc/X11/kb/) try different options or comment this line.

About boot splash, edit /etc/defaults/psplash and remove -a 270 but it will look weird

Capn_Fish hope everything goes as expected unsure.gif

EzerchE maybe you where extracting the tar.bz2 without root account, anyway, you got it smile.gif
1. mouse is moving like screen rotated, mouse moving for vertical view, but i am using it horizontially.
i don't use mouse, i don't have an adapter.
2. i have linksys wcf 12 and how can i connect to wireless network
that's ubuntu basics, but start checking /etc/network/interfaces

Yeah I did that. However it doesn't work with the two cards I tried. In fact I had to take the unit apart, install the files on the MD and then insert it again into the C3000. Then the system boots. I guess there is some incompatibility with my CF cards or something. I will try with some SD cards later see if that resolves the problem. However at least I got the thing up and running now.

Seriously liking the Zubuntu.
