Although we had some critical bugs in our first stable release image, we were able to fix them due to continuous testing and developing on the image.

I am proud to present the new stable images:

http://www.angstrom-distribution.org/relea.../images/simpad/

I suggest using the x11-image if you own a SL4/SLC device.

If you own a 16MB device (CL4,WP50,T-Sinus) you must use the minimalist-gpe-image or the console-image. The x11-image is too big for them.

Please keep reporting bugs for that image on bugs.openembedded.org and make them block bug number 2595.

So we will be able assure better releases smile.gif.

Congrats! smile.gif

I used to own one ... was really good, but gave it up 'cos it was not readable under the sun ... what was I thinking? tongue.gif

In any case, you are giving existing simpad users a ray of hope for a better future! biggrin.gif

Hi Mr-nice ...

long time ago since r14 has een released ... any roadmap for new r??

my biggest problem was WLAN WPA missing / not working in r14 ... searching too for a working wlan PCMCIA (16bit) card for Simpad ... I have 3 cards but they are only 32bit PCcards not working in simpad :-(

Thanks
Martin

hi,
which wlan card did you try? does this wlan card work with wpa_supplicant on e.g. a laptop with linux ?

on my simpad (angstrom-r14) the siemens igate (prism) works perfect with wpa. igate cards are cheep to get at ebay ~10.

for the release question:
at the moment there is no new kernel work done and as far as i know r14 is the newest angstrom release.
next item on my todo list is to finish the uboot port. but i am a bit busy with university ...

best regard

@mr_nice

thanks for you answer ... my Siemens igate WL11000 - 1 - 3V did not work with my simpad and wpa ... are you right with wpa? I read some notes ... or is it only that the wpa mode is note corect recognized in r14 ?

Sorry but at the moment I have opened my simpad to renew battery and get mmc/sd mod to work :-) ... maybe I try to get a BT mod working ... I used to try it with a small BT modul from a siemens notebook ... waiting for some informations on the module ...

Thanks
Martin

Well on my Simpad wpa works perfect see [1] for a log of my connection. also mrdata reported to have wpa working with igate on it.
unfortunately i am not able to spend a lot of time into support because i have a huge load of work to do for university sad.gif.
but in two month i have vacations and then I have much more time for it smile.gif.

best regards
