I've created new Genesi images that utilize our transition to ARMHF as our mobile base.

Loaded on my test smartbook. Bodhi looks just as good as it does on x86. Two quick comments/questions:

1. How do I get the brightness keys to work? I couldn't get them to work on the prior version either. For my use case, I actually use the brightness keys quite a bit. The volume keys work.

2. Suspend doesn't seem to work, but not really a big deal for me.

Brightness keys worked on the sid armhf and William Schaub armel squeeze images. And suspend works on the armel squeeze image (I don't have the sid image loaded to check).

Still poking around to figure out how to get brightness working...

As for suspend - I forgot to edit the sysactions file to work on the smartbook on this image - thanks for reminding me.

For now if you need/want suspend simply run in terminal:

Code:
sudo nano /etc/enlightenment/sysactions.conf


And edit the line:

Code:
action:   suspend   /etc/acpi/sleep.sh force


And change the line to read:

Code:
action:   suspend   /usr/sbin/pm-suspend


Finally, in order to make sure the keyboard/mouse work on resume you need to install one package. While you have an active internet connection run:

Code:
wget http://armhf.efikamx.info/pool/main/i/imx-settings/imx-powermanagement-config_2.1.1-20120430.1_armhf.deb
sudo dpkg -i imx-power*.deb

Hi,

First, I'd like to say a BIG thank you to Jeff Hoogland and all the one who worked on the port.

I installed it, and it works very well on my smartbook !

What works :

- login / add new users
- wifi ( using WPA -> perfect !)
- update / upgrade
- 2D/3D acceleration (ok, not very powerfull, but OpenGL is present)
- gcc + g++ toolchain seems to be OK (building OOoLight)

The issues I found :

#1 Yet no way to invert the "fn" key behaviour ( see my post: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=2033 )

#2 Missing /lib/ld-linux.so.3 /lib/ld-linux-armhf.so.3 , and no backward compatibility with old software ABI

How to catch the issue : install OOoLight form my personal repository.
=> it does not launch : /usr/lib/ooolight-1.1/program/soffice.bin does not exist.
To catch the reason : strace soffice.bin, and execve() will not find /lib/ld-linux.so.3 (old soft floatABI)

Workaround: sudo ln -s /lib/ld-linux-armhf.so.3 /lib/ld-linux.so.3

Note for Markos : subversion worked suddenly since ;-)

#3 uname is probably not correct, because "uname -a" returns :
Linux efikamx 2.6.31.14-27-efikamx #1 Tue Feb 21 15:43:17 UTC 2012 armv7l GNU/Linux
IMHO, should return :
Linux armhf 2.6.31.14-27-efikamx #1 Tue Feb 21 15:43:17 UTC 2012 armv7l GNU/Linux

#4 Gnome classic seems to now work. (GNOME issue IMHO)

#5 fr layout cannot kept after a logout. I have to select myself everytime.

#6 no way to localize correctly the Gnome interface in french
I added fr_FR.ISO-8859.1 and all other needed locales + localegen + used the gnome tools to select the right layout and co

# found other logs who could be usefull in /var/log, but I prefer wait for precise requests.


Thanks again !!

The second portion of uname is the hostname of the local machine, so it is whatever your hostname is. I.E. on a few of mine it's "hardenedefika", "rose", "amy", "perri", "hardenedmx6" and so on. If you want it to return Linux armhf 2.6.31.... just change your hostname to armhf :)

@steev

OOops, you are right, was a stupid check :-)

Since, I searched a bit, and found something who seems to be better : gcc -dumpmachine

It does contain arm + hf and I'll check on other machines, to verify ot's reliable.

To complete the view, and based on the nice http://jeetworks.org/node/116 blog entry, it cannot be bad to try : gcc -v -x -c++ /dev/null -fsyntax-only

Returns a lot of information there.

I've published what should be our last set of images for some time for the Genesi Smartbook - because they are awesome! They are finally in a spot I am happy with. Grab the latest images here:

http://sourceforge.net/projects/bodhili ... HF/Genesi/

If one of the folks here can update the Bodhi links on the community page to these latest images that would be great.

Cheers,
~Jeff

On the netop, it works fine indeed, but i have some minor issues:

No ethernet, i know it's useless for the netbook, but quite important for my nettop. Is there a simple way to add it ?

No french localization. i can't get any french language package with synaptic, and the bodhi fr package is present but i can't install it as it's not certified (i don't remember the correct error).

One repository (the bodhi one) is not reachable via synaptic or apt-get...

The overall look is nice, the responsiveness too.
I just need it as a writing platform for one coworker, not really linux aware (at least :-)).

Thanks if you can help me.

Have you poked around in WICD (the default network manager in the tray) it should handle wired network connections by default.
