Need help installing Fedora 17 arm on Folio 100
there's some fantastic stuff on your forum and I would like to thank you all for work being done here!
Now, to my point. I need kernel source (or update.zip or zImage or boot.img or whatever
) that can support systemd so I can run Fedora 17 arm on my Toshiba Folio 100.
I tried using kernel 3.1 form DerArtem (the guy who has done amazing work with folio) but it has no framebuffer console. I tried adding support for this myself (following this guide: kernel.org/doc/Documentation/fb/fbcon.txt) but it didn't work. There's no surprise there as I am newbie when it comes to compiling kernel and changing its options.
I succeeded in starting Fedora 12 arm with older kernel using this guide (lguegan.free.fr/article.php3?id_article=29) which is inspired by you guys. It worked all right, but I didn't want to go deeper with it because F12 arm didn't have LibreOffice (or OpenOffice) in its repos and Fedora 17 did. Also, Fedora 17 has core support for multi-touch - apps do need to implement this feature though, but the funcionality is there.
And if there is someone who can help me, I can point you in a few directions:
Kernel source for 3.1: github.com/DerArtem/android_kernel_toshiba_betelgeuse
Fedora 17 arm rootfs: fr2.rpmfind.net/linux/fedora-secondary/releases/17/Images/
I am not sure which image you should use SFP or HFP as I don't know what kind of floating point Folio uses.
I am making boot.img with this command:
#mkbootimg --kernel arch/arm/boot/zImage --cmdline "mem=448M@0M nvmem=64M@448M vmalloc=192M video=tegrafb usbcore.old_scheme_first=1 tegrapart=recovery:122000:a00:800,linux:a0e00:1000:800,loader:300:400:800,mbr:700:200:800,system:900:20000:800,cache:20900:80000:800,misc:a0900:400:800,userdata:a1f00:80000:800 boardtype=PR root=/dev/mmcblk1p1 init=/sbin/init usb-storage.delay_use=0 rootdelay=10" -o boot.img --ramdisk boot.img-ramdisk.gz
maybe there is something wrong right there, but I don't know what half of these kernel parameters do
Also, maybe I am using wrong config file: arch/arm/configs/tegra_betelgeuse_android_defconfig, please do correct me.
Now that I think, I just need config file for this 3.1 kernel, so basicaly that's the help I need.
Thanks in advance and again thank you for all the good stuff here
