Yes...the fixes are only in .dev branch at the moment.

A patch for .stable branch is expected very soon.

Angstrom Status On Tosa

Okay, two more problems have arisen...

1. Building base-image or console-image fails at the wlan-ng packages. Here is the log for wlan-ng modules.

FATAL: oe_runmake failed

It appears to be a file not found error but I haven't modified the tree at all and I did a "git pull" before building.

2. Two kernels were built (2.6.24-r13 and 2.6.29-r5) as well as updater.sh.tosa. Only 2.6.24-r13 can be flashed using updater.sh.tosa, 2.6.29-r5 gives the error message that the file is too big. This is a problem because as you know, the reason I am trying to get this all up and running is so I can take a shot at installing Android and I believe Android requires a 2.6.25 or higher kernel to work.

Angstrom Status On Tosa

I asked on the mailing list, but didn't get a reply so I thought I'd ask here.

All of the 2008.x images in the autobuild dir are gone, and only kexec images are there.  I have used the narcissus images in the past successfully to boot Angstrom with either Opie or x11 for Tosa (via SD w/ kexec kernel).  Lately the images have not been completing the configuration of kernel modules.  In particular, kernel-module-zlib-inflate gets stuck (can't get past it - Tosa requires a reset).

I'm curious if anyone is still doing kernel dev for the tosa (it was lumaq {letic?}).  Is there any way to follow development if it is still going on?  I love the device, and I'd love to continue using it if I can.

Thanks,

Russell Dwiggins

Kernel development is still actively done, and can be followed on the linux-arm-kernel mailing list.
I'll try to build 2.6.31 for Tosa tomorrow... promise made!
My Tosa has been sitting in the drawer for much too long. let's see how this works out  

Cheers,
cortez

Thanks Cortez, you're a major asset to this community!

Does this mean Zubuntu might follow shortly?? *nudge*

Small update: the multiboot kernel is working, but starting the 2.6.31-rc3 kernel results in a black screen on startup. I'll check the kernel configuration again later to see if I mis-configured something, and give it another try.

Another small update: somehow the 2.6.31 kernel still doesn't work, so I tried 2.6.29. I now have Zubuntu working... at least partly. Fonts are displayed scrambled, and touchscreen doesn't seem to work. So a beginning is made, but there's still work to do.

I'm on my way to trying it, but just a quick note on extracting the rootfs onto an SD:
A lot of
Code: [Select]
Cannot create symlink to `': Operation not permittedtype errors.

More later...

Make sure you use "sudo tar -zxpf achive.tar.gz" to make sure you have the right permissions. This is important!

Turned out to be a bad mount.  Created new topic (Zubuntu isn't angstrom, is it?)

I agree 100%. I might be somewhat quiet of late due to busyness, but I still read the updates avidly. I've bought a dremel in the hope I can grind off the broken ram chip in one of my tosas and solder a fresh one on!
