Test Openmoko Emulation with chroot image
The Image may be available later today (2007/07/16). It will be about 15 GiB and the Download will be 3.2 GiB..
Usage of the chroot image
If you do just want to test some of the functionality and need a starting point, you can download an ext3 Image.
The Image is just a first test and may contain errors as it's not tested well yet (and the build process was not running through without user interferences).
You will need to decompress the Image (about 15 Gbyte). An you'll also need the chroot software and loop back device support in your kernel.
To install chroot in GNU/Debian / Ubuntu you can use:
apt-get install dchroot
To mount and activate the chroot image use
Download, unzip2 and mount the Image:
wget <image-file.tar.bz2> tar -xjf <image-file.tar.bz2>
mkdir /var/chroot mount -o loop image-file.img /var/chroot
Add a new chroot configuration:
echo "OpenMoko /var/chroot" | sudo tee -a /etc/dchroot.conf
Edit /etc/fstab and insert skip this to mount manually:
/tmp /var/chroot/tmp none bind 0 0 proc-chroot /var/chroot/proc proc defaults 0 0 devpts-chroot /var/chroot/dev/pts devpts defaults 0 0 mount -a
mount -o bind /tmp /var/chroot/tmp mount -t proc proc-chroot /var/chroot/proc mount -t devpts devpts-chroot /var/chroot/dev/pts
Copy over you /etc/resolv.conf:
cp /etc/resolv.conf /var/chroot/etc/
As the user who started X11:
xhost + # assuming you are behind NAT
Start the chroot environment (as root again):
dchroot -d -c OpenMoko # -d to take the environment variables with you
Starting the Emulation
You can start the emulation by running:
cd /home/moko/openmoko/trunk/src/host/qemu-neo1973/ arm-softmmu/qemu-system-arm -M neo -m 130 -mtdblock openmoko/openmoko-flash.image \ -kernel openmoko/openmoko-kernel.bin -usb -show-cursor -usbdevice keyboard
There is no root password set an no user moko in the systems right now which should not be a problem when used in a chroot environment.
