PostPosted: Thu 21 Jul 2011, 01:17    Post subject: XOpup-2.2.RC has been released  

Just updated XOpup to XOpup-2.2.RC (xopup-204).

There is the usual updates, additions, bugfixes etc (see changelog for details), but the most noticeable for the user, is the addition of the Frisbee network manager.

To install XOpup-2.2.RC download XOpup-2.2.RC.tar.gz expand it at the root of any USB or SDcard and boot. But first please do see the build Announcement.

To update from a previous xopup-20x build, just expand the tarball at the root of the USB/SDcard that you run XOpup from.

If you do an update instead of a clean/new install, Frisbee may have difficulties connecting immediately after the update.
Reboot after the version update and then use Frisbee for the first time.
Alternatively, before you update to version 204, install the Frisbee_XO-2.pet (in the previous page) that will properly reset your settings, and then update and enjoy.

PostPosted: Mon 08 Aug 2011, 15:54    Post subject: New power management  

One of the missing features in XOpup power management was to properly detect external mice and keyboards and not dim/blank/sleep while they were used.

Not anymore Very Happy

Thanks to the new olpc-kbdshim-19 from the OLPC folks (pgf) and a lot of messing around with it, XOpup can now "see" the use of external mice/keyboards and act accordingly.

Just download and install the attached kbdshim_udev_19-1.pet, reboot and you are set!

Work in all XOpups from 2.0 onwards.

Note: Since OLPC power management, powers down the USB ports when in suspend, the XOpup will not auto-suspend on prolonged user inactivity when an external mouse/keyboard is attached.
Will dim and blank OK, though.
Will also suspend fine when the lid is closed or the power button is pressed.

PostPosted: Sat 20 Aug 2011, 00:57    Post subject: XOpup-2.2 Release  

Almost 2 years to the date after my Puppylinux-on-XO saga started, 1 year after the first XOpup build was released and 15 builds latter Shocked ...
XOpup-2.2 is out.



XOpup-2.2 integrates updates from (the terminated ? Sad ) Puppylinux 5.2.x series, Woof/Wary development, latest OLPC software, various pets and some stuff unique to XOpup.

From faster boot and peripherals-aware power management, to friendly network manager and customization scripts, XOpup has come a long way from the original build. Now looks like a useful OS for the aging XO-1 and the (soon to be replaced by XO-1.75) XO-1.5.

Using the extended Lucid-puppy pet repository and the Ubuntu 10.04 LTS packages, has the ability to carry the XO-1 to the end of its useful life and provide a viable alternative to XO-1.5

Unless major issues are found, I doubt that will be another XOpup build.
I'll try of course to support XOpup the best I can.
It was a fun and educating process for me.

But do not despair, 01micko is developing Slackware Puppy, a Puppylinux 5.3 candidate, and said more than once that he is planning to make it available for the XO too.
So let's give him a hand Wink

Slacko has a zdrv, which should make things a little easier to separate Smile

As soon as final is released (late September), I'll be back playing in Xo land.. SlaXO land.. Laughing

Let me know mavrothal if you think the video drivers need to be updated. (you can get the versions by looking at "Packages-puppy-slacko-official" on the puppy servers.)

Cheers

I'm not sure which version of geode_drv Slacko is using but anything above 2.11.9 is OK for the XO-1. Slackware 13.37 is using 2.11.10 so I assume is the same for slacko, Should be OK.
The XO-1.5 though needs the chrome driver to be compiled from source, since is not upstreamed to Xorg AFAIK.

I compiled it in Slacko 4991 (after downloading a couple of dev packages). No issues. Very Happy

Now we need to know if it works...

Anyone with a VIA7 CPU, VX855/VX875 chipset running Slacko?

Well... I have one Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy



This is with the XOpup-2.2 kernel/intrd (though the init script is the original), the chrome driver posted above and the XOpup's xorg.conf.
Adding udev 165 from official slackware, olpc-kbdshim-udev, powerd, olpc-brightnes, olpc-volume, olpc-rotate and the wireless firmware, the XOpup's battery monitor, and rc.local and a small addition in rc.sysint, is in perfect working order Very Happy
It does need a rotation aware window manager though Laughing

Remarkable! Very Happy

So what works and what doesn't? Did the zdrv make transforming any easier? Did you get my latest Pupdial from Slacko thread? I'm working on an NLS version with gettext...oh and openbox/fbpanel from ppm mostly works..

Smile Very Happy Laughing Twisted Evil

At the end, EVERYTHING WORKS, including power management.
Starting with the original slacko4991, failed totally to pass OFW screen and get to console. Is VIA enabled in the kernel config?

Adding the XOpup kernel got me to startx which failed because the xorgwizard does not even offer the XO resolution (1200x900). Though I'm not sure would have worked even if it was there.

Adding the chome driver, the xorg.conf and `modprobe mousedev' got me to a functional desktop with sound.

Adding the wireless firmware (it is present compressed in the zrdv) got me network.

Quote:

No. But the "problem" is that the XOpup initrd.gz has the entire kernel and modules (since it has only the XO-specific ones). So does not need anything else.
At some point I might rework the XOpup initrd with just the needed modules and then move the rest to zdrv of the sfs

Not yet

Aaa ha! Thinking globally I see Very Happy

Quote:

Not really, but enough to verify that rotation works. Smile
It needs fbpanel configuration and an fbpanel-aware fixmenus to be OK.
And some how it managed to mess-up the JWM tray with no Startup tray applications running. I guessed it did something to .xinitrc. I'll have to check.

On different note, I have all the changes and additions (except the kernel) in a tarball. Is only ~850kb (too big for posting) and most of it is udev-165. We could do without it, using the kbdshim-udev from post above in this page and the rc.local from xopup-204, but I think is better to follow "upstreams" as much as possible. Minimizes hacking, facilitates maintainability and can be easier woofyfied Wink

Ok, this is great!

Anything you can think of that can make things easier for olpc in general Slacko development? (BTW, I enabled what I thought would be ok, considering olpc in the kernel, knowing it was doomed anyway! [patches are probably needed])

Yes! Actually started a Spanish trans from my feeble knowledge of Spanish and google translate Laughing

Note that all the necessary stuff for openbox/fbpanel (fixmenus etc) is available; DaveS and myself are onto making a package Wink I'm also interested in Iguleder's work with Window Maker, reckon's he has his own fixmenus and all, of course more investigation needed. I just think openbox/fbpanel is too slow. Maybe pekwm/tint2? (fixmenus exists Wink thanks to Musher0)

Early days .. will be fun!

Cheers

Indeed! Laughing

I already uploaded in datafilehostSlaXOfy.tar.bz2 - NO GO
Expand it at the root of the squashfs-root and your puppy is good for the XOs (provided the right kernel of course)
It has the XO-1.5 driver and xorg.conf for the XO-1 and XO-1.5, power management and keyboard recognition, udev and some modifications in puppy scripts plus rc.local.
Actually it should work for any puppy provided it has a geode driver and that the (truncated) Slackware udev-165 is not going to give any problems.

Latter And since we are up to it,... I also uploaded make_initrds.tar.bz2 that will build the XO-1/XO-1.5 intrd/vmlinuz (based on the xopup-205 kernels) out of any puppy's initrd.gz. - NO GO
Just copy the original initrd.gz into the folder and run the build.sh script.
So when beta2 is coming out? Laughing

PS see 2 posts below

This week some time.

What I can do is do a specialised woof build for SlaXO, with the prefix and everything in place, also add in scripts which are compat with the main repo. Do you have a browser preference? I can build in any browser, however I prefer not to build in Chrome browsers as they need extray nss/nspr libs from seamonkey, a bit too bloated too. Opera needs them too but isn't so large.

Also, can you point me to specialised pets so they can be included?

Later.. actually I can just pet the SlaXOfy.tar.bz2 file and that should cover it for now, and I can specify in woof to not build all the unnecessary Xorg drivers and other stuff.

Hold on a bit
Actually the make_initrds has the kernels mixed up and the wrong olpc.fth (too late last night Embarassed )
The SlaXOfy is mostly OK (just needs a couple of additions) but when I tested on the XO-1 took 2 minutes !!! to do the `udevadm settle' step in rc.sysinit. In XOpup takes about 5 secs. So I have to look over the slackware udev to see what the issue might be .

Give me a couple of days

Actually I was delighted to see that Seamonkey 2.3 works in XO-1! Previous2.x versions failed (is XOpup). So Seamonkey it is!

Another thought... maybe we need a new thread for SlaXO?....

Just a quick play.. no boot though..

Code:
#!/bin/sh

# Make Puppy initrds for the OLPC XO-1 and XO-1.5

#set -x

CWD=`pwd` #just for standards
CORRECTDIR=`echo $CWD | grep make_initrds`

if [ "$CORRECTDIR" = "" ] ; then
   echo "please run the script from within the \"make_initrds\" directory"
   exit 0
fi

if [ ! -f $CWD/initrd.gz ] ; then
   echo "please copy the puppy initrd.gz into the \"make_initrds\" directory"
    exit 0
fi



for DIR in XO*

do VER="`echo $DIR|sed -e 's%^XO%%' -e 's%kernel$%%'`"
 case $VER in
  1)VERDIR=10
    XO=XO1 ;;
  1.5)VERDIR=15
     XO=XO1.5 ;;
  *)echo "not supported" && break && exit 0 ;;
 esac
 
[ -f $CWD/boot${VERDIR}/initrd.* ] && rm -f $CWD/boot${VERDIR}/initrd.*

echo "Making the $XO initrd.gz"

cd $CWD/initramfs

gunzip -c ../initrd.gz | cpio -i
sync
rm -rf lib/modules/*
cp -aR ../$DIR/* .
sync
find . -print | cpio -H newc -o | gzip -9 > ../boot${VERDIR}/initrd.gz
sync

rm -rf $CWD/initramfs/*
echo "find kernel and initrd in the $DIR diectory"
done

cd $CWD

echo " Done! "
#echo "find kernels and initrds in the \"boot10\" and \"boot15\" folders"
exit 0

Looks good to me Cool
Though, before seeing this I had already uploaded XOfy.tar.gz (md5sum: 2403e5eb9cd49d6c745231b02ecce5c6) that has both the corrected kernels and the files and a mini howto that I hope you will script Wink
I left the full udev out, aiming for a more generic version* and udev can be woofed-in from the distro package list or just installed afterwards.
Some looking into udev solved the loooong module loading process.
Hopefully Barry will include my little suggestion into the next woof (upstreaming Wink ) and make things a bit simpler.

* Tried it with slack and lupu-258. Actually in lupu worked even without the full udev. Something to look at...
