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


All Ubuntu Jaunty official repository packages for your zaurus biggrin.gif

Connection Manager
  • connman The core Connection Manager daemon (connmand) and plug-ins for Ethernet, WiFi, Bluetooth, DHCP (udhcpc and dhclient), resolvconf, DNS proxy and PolicyKit
  • connman-gnome The GTK+-based user interfaces for an applet and a properties dialog.


Like network-manager from gnome, you have to comment all lines in /etc/network/interfaces

Custom setup:
I launch it with a shell script (connman-min) that kills the tray interface after one minute to save memory, the daemon is very lightweight.
I use stalonetray as the tray system, if you have a working tray function in your desktop, don't install stalonetray and remove the related lines in connman-min.

connman-min.tar has the .stalonetrayrc (put it in /root/ or your home directory) and the connman-min shell script (put it in /usr/bin or any binary folder)

anyone using bluez or ethernet willing to test it? i just used with wpa and works

Connman is now available in ubuntu repository using dhclient
For connman with udhcp support download: http://www.oesf.org/forum/index.php?s=&...st&p=181822 in Zubuntu Packages thread
Attached File(s)
Attached File  connman_min.tar ( 10K ) Number of downloads: 13

Just tested it for wifi and its working nicely here too.
I just ran connman-applet from the run box of lxde for testing purposes.
I'm having all sorts of problems with bluetooth though, according to what I have read bluetooth connections seem to require having been set up in bluez before connman can work with them, and the problem there is how to get pairing working with the new bluez stack.

I cant get bluetooth-wizard to run due to dbus problems:

"Can't get session bus: failed execute dbus-launch to autolaunch D-Bus session"

well, i could not setup a bluez connection using connman either, i read that bluez changed its standards so connman lost compatibility with bluez. i think it's better to wait for the connman version 0.13 dry.gif

NOTE: i have no experience using bluetooth, but i could setup bluetooth connection in my ubuntu desktop (not zaurus) using bluetooth-applet and haven't played with it, just to test it
