OpenZaurus 126.96.36.199 RC1 released
August 10th, 2006 by Marcin Juszkiewicz
Second version of OpenZaurus with 2.6 kernel for:
is available from http://ewi546.ewi.utwente.nl/tmp/hrw/188.8.131.52-test/rc1/
collie OPIE image got PIM and Bluetooth apps removed
poodle/tosa OPIE images got Qpdf2, Konqueror, games and few other things removed
poodle GPE image got Sylpheed removed (unusable on such small screen)Collie does not have working SD/MMC and we do not know when it will have it supported. Chip which control SD/MMC is not documented so to get it working under 2.6 someone would have to do some reverse-engineering work on 2.4 binary driver. Our kernel team work on getting other models fully supported.
It is experimental release to get wider testing of our work and to show all of you what we did during last months. Support for those machines needs some love and hard work, but machines are far more usable then they were under 2.4-crapix kernel.
Release notes are available already in wiki. Feel free to add content.
