    pandian - 01

    Heiho out there,

    i have not much time after work, but i finished my first version of pandian.

    An debian hard-float port only for SD-Card, based on the stable branch of debian.

    ( because unstable branch is actually broken )

    Features:

    • Hard-Float-ABI
    • ext4 Root for better performance
    • working Touch-Screen
    • working Nubs
    • Screen-Off on LID-Close
    • Low-Power-Mode ( switch to left ;) )
    • WLAN
    • Music ( with Sonata/MPD )
    • Automount
    • LXDE
    • latest open-pandora-kernel

    Still to-do:

    • Assistant for tzdata
    • libpnd - PND-Support
    • OpenGL not tested yet
    • Fancy logos and other graphical things

    Download

    Direct-Link: no more aviable, sorry the server running out of resources ._.

    Probably a dumb question, but what do you mean by "open things" ?

    Like a todo list?

    Also, how big is it, unpacked?

    A well yes, open things mean "To-Do-List" or "Thins that still open, not finished" ;) ( i will edit this )

    It fit's to an 2GB SD-Card. The archive is unpacked 1,8GB. So if you have an bigger card, the partitions need to be resized.

    This looks very cool.  Your download server is having a hard time of it; would you consider making it available on P2P, perhaps

    via bitlove.org?

    Congratulations....

    Thanks for sharing this...

    Curious as to how this differs from PanDebian which I've been using....

    Pandebian runs on chroot on top of sz.


    This is a full debiandistro.

    Well, this is great! But, I'm interested in the technical details.

    Why is unstable broken? Its working on my pandora just fine. Ok, I haven't tried to setup low power mode, but most of the things work.

    How did you make ext4 work? /boot is ext2 and / is ext4? Will you write up on how you have set up the rest of these? I have an working unstable, so I'd just like to modify it so that I can too have all of this. I'll download your image, but it would be great to have the details on setup.

    @smilnovi
    Well, ive try to multistrap debian sid, it was not working because the package xorg-video-abi-12 is still missing

    I have also an old experimental-image of debain-sid as armhf ... but it is old. Low-power-mode is working there also.

    Iam waiting that this package gets out from incoming-repro

    ext4

    The trick with ext4 is, the u-boot bootloader loads the uImage from the first fat partition. Because the ext4-filesystem is in uImage compiled ( not as kernel module ) the Kernel can load the second partition. The information where to find the partition comes from the kernel comand-line in autoboot.txt. Nice and easy :)

    and yes, i will write an how-to on my homepage ( and maybe in the pandora-wiki? )

    Ok, I understand. I have it working with a bit older version of X, but I have seen with the last aptitude upgrade that there is an collision with these packages. I have debootstraped it somewhere around spring this year, and pandora has been working nicely.

    Great! :) I will check out your image and see if I can reuse your configuration. 

    @sebt3:

    So there is really no way to have OpenGL on Hard-Float ABI? I have found some revers engineered drivers, but haven't tried those... That is a shame...

    Oha, it comes trough my mind about the ext4:

    In this image, there are two partitions. The first is FAT32 where the uImage and autoboot.txt is located, the second is ext4 where the root is located.

    could someone pls put this on a reliable server (dragonbox or the like)?

    im trying to download, but it keeps failing.

    share-online takes hours.

    ^You could ask sswam nicely - he runs a repo mirror, so presumably has some decent server capacity

    I'am sorry for this. Its just an development-Server and it seems that the maximum amount of opening files already reached.. damn

    I've uploading it to file-dropper, hope this will help.

    I also increase the number of server-processes behind the proxy, this will also improve the downloads.
