FYI peeps, we are all currently unpatched.
31 Jul 2018
Copy of post from developer.planetcom.co.uk (https://developer.planetcom.co.uk/showthread.php?tid=153&pid=371#pid371):


I am trying to bring up the internal wifi under Arch Linux using the stock 3.18 kernel (recompiled with module support).

I've copied the firmware from .stowaways in the Debian TP sailfish rootfs to /lib/firmware (and symlinked to /etc/firmware, /system/extra/firmware and somewhere else I forget).

I then compiled these tools - https://github.com/abbradar/wmt. (I couldn't use the one from sailfish rootfs as the were compiled for the wrong arch (armhf? 32 bit?)

I then run wmt_loader and I get the following:

init combo device
Opened combo device
get device id : 26519
set device id : 26519
do module init: 26519
failed to init module

I can't for the life of me work out how you are bringing up the wifi in Debian TP - any pointers would be greatly appreciated! Just to clarify I am not even getting a wlan0 interface. The networking with external devices is fine ie USB ethernet/wifi dongles.

Anyone over here have any thoughts?

Hello all,

If I want to put my linux rootfs on a USB stick do I just create a custom kernel/boot.img which will point to a partition on a usb stick (e.g. root=/dev/sda1). I'm thinking of setting the third boot.img as a usb boot.

I'm aiming for:
boot 1 - rooted android
boot 2 - debian tp
boot 3 - custom kernel pointing to rootfs on usb stick. I plan to use this to test out other distros and, eventually, newer kernels

sound feasible?

Apologies if this has been asked before but what USB standard is supported on the gemini?

Hardware support - it seems that the x25/x27 could support USB 3.0, but that doesn't mean the rest of the hardware has been put in place on the gemini.

Software - I've not flashed native linux so I can't test, and running lsusb -v under android only reports a USB 2.0 device. But I'm out and about and haven't tried with anything plugged into it which may give me more useful results. (ps you need more than just the busybox lsusb to give you verbose output)

And before anyone says anything, no USB C does not equal USB 3.x. USB 2.0 can be implemented over C type port/cables.


OK so I've done some more testing this morning...
Right side port appears as a USB 2.0 hub
Left side port appears as a 3.0 hub (5gbs) but...
The Planet supplied hub only enumerates as a 2.0 device, and so does my USB 3.0 flashdrive sad.gif

I don't have a device to test yet, but I have found some source for a linux flash tool that might work the the images released from Planet Computers today.


if you are compiling under linux then edit Build/build-linux.mk and change the path to qmake. QT4 is needed.
