Hi,

I had no hits when searching for "titchy" here, so I thought I'd mention it exists.

Titchy homepage

It is a debian arm system that comes with very nice instructions and an installer.
(it's not armel, no need to compile you're own kernel, no ... - it justs works)

Those looking for native debian on the Z, this seems to be it.

Have fun,
Chero.

So it uses the official ARM packages, is that right?
Then there should be a GCC toolchain?
Do networking, screen rotation and over/under-clocking work?
I suppose the silkscreen keys don't work, do they?
So many questions pop up now because it's very exciting news...

Sorry one more: how can the system upgrade?

Yes, arm

It has gcc -- it has debian, which has gcc if'n you want it.

Networking works like a charm. I had trouble after installation, since I had two competing sets of modules, one which would not work with my network card. Once I figured out which one to blacklist, I was in business. Wired ethernet works, too. I have not tried usb networking, so can't say about that.

Screen rotation does not work. Neither does over/under clocking, but someone is talking about a new kernel that supports it.

Silkscreen keys don't work, but keylaunch will work for the special buttons on the bottom, and that also allows you to use xloadmap to change "mouse buttons" for touchscreen taps.

I upgraded the system from debian etch to debian lenny by changing the entries in /etc/apt/sources.list (just as you would for any debian), and ran apt-get update; apt-get dist-upgrade. The only thing that broke was the link to the X server (one of my installation steps loaded the xorg server, which is not configured right and you don't want anyway, and the upgrade re-links X to that; a simple linke back to the kdrive server fixes that.

BTW, it is a bit slow to upgrade all that.

Can you (or anyone here) elaborate on the last part? How can we fix the X server precisely?
I need to know this before apt-get dist-upgrade ... wink.gif
Thanks!
