Hi all,

I would like to announce that some testing images of the Angstrom Linux distribution containing the Opie user environment version 1.2.3 are now available. For most devices, this is the first time Opie 1.2.3 has been available in a distribution in any form, and once testing and debugging has finished we hope that this will give access to Opie to more users.

If you have one of the following listed devices, we would love to hear feedback on how well it works for you:
  • Zaurus SL-5500
  • Zaurus SL-5600
  • Zaurus SL-C1000
  • Zaurus SL-C3000
  • Zaurus SL-C7x0
  • Zaurus SL-6000
  • iPAQ h2200 series
  • iPAQ h3900 series
  • iPAQ h4000 series
  • iPAQ h5000 series
  • iPAQ hx4700
  • Motorola A780
  • HTC Universal
  • Siemens Simpad (see note [1])
The central point for information is the following wiki page:

  http://linuxtogo.org/gowiki/AngstromOpieTesting

From there you can find information on how to download and run an image on your device as well as some known issues.

Opie is now on the path to becoming a supported choice of environment within Angstrom, and we expect the testing period to last for at least a month, during which time we will be collecting information and fixing serious bugs where they are found.

We welcome all feedback, so if you can, please try one of the images and send your reports to angstrom-distro-users@linuxtogo.org.

Thanks,
Paul

[1] There is an image available for the Siemens Simpad, but there is a bug preventing Opie from starting on this device - some help debugging this problem would be welcome (see http://bugs.openembedded.org/show_bug.cgi?id=3681 for details).

When can we expect to see a bugfix release of Angstrom OPIE for spitz? (sorry, but I dont like the GPE interface). I tested this build but it is too buggy to use but it is fast - congratulations to the devs!

For me, the killer feature would be PERL that supports the installation of CPAN updates. I can get CPAN to run under OZ but every attempt to install a module bombs out.

Have you tried the latest -r18 image? If so, what do you mean specifically by buggy? I have a spitz here for testing and it worked pretty well for me, but I'm happy to look into any issues.

Not sure I can help you here, I'm not a perl person. Try asking on the angstrom-distro-users mailing list.

I've just flashed from this link, dated 14th Sept 2008 and I still get the dis-oriented arrow keys 8-(

http://www.angstrom-distribution.org/relea...-installkit.tgz

Call me old-fashioned, but I get frustrated very quickly when the basics dont work.
