Revision as of 09:07, 16 August 2008

Can we get some community / more official debian help. If some one wants to get the stylus / touch screen calibrated on the gta02 that would be great. Oh and lenny works nicely if you don't want to use sid.  :) --Dbmoodb 16:54, 3 August 2008 (UTC)

Booting

Umount

I remember seeing a umount /media/card command on this page which i don't see anymore. That's needed or you will get

/dev/mmcblk0p1 is mounted; will not make a filesystem here!

Fdisk will also complain

WARNING: rereading partition table failed, kernel still uses old table: Device or resource busy

I needed to umount and rewrite the partition table in order for /dev/mmcblk0p2 to appear.

Partitions

Why don't we boot from NAND?

What's the reason for two partitions? Is it because ext2load was broken? Can we just upgrade u-boot and use one partition?

Is there any need for a swap partition?

Touch screen calibration

Few days ago there was added calibration for gta02. It doesn't work correctly on my freerunnuer (the mouse pointer doesn't move where I click ant the touchscreen area is about 1/3 smaller then the screen). I tried /etc/pointercal from qtopia and openmoko but it is the same as with parameters from this wiki. Has somebody a tip how to fix this?

Yeah i know what you mean Jakubzeman, it was suggested to me on irc to copy the X server from the 2007.2 distro / other distro to the debian installation... that fixes the pointer but you have to then set it up to work for gdm.... / autologin. NO SID IS NOT REQUIRED I'm using lenny. Oh and if some one wants to see if they can get a debian based kernel / merge / get some more modules from debian / general modules into a kernel for other hardware (such as a rt73 chipset wireless card that would be great :) ) Dbmoodb 08:09, 8 August 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for suggestion. I'll try it (and I'll report if I'm successful or not). --Jakubzeman 08:56, 8 August 2008 (UTC)
