Debian on Letux400

Hi,

I managed to install Debian on the Letux400 and would like to write a
howto. Where would be the best place to post instructions?
Is this okay for Goldelico (I remember something like not to confront
the normal user with things like flashing)?

I recognized the following issues so far, using KernelOfTheWeek
uImage-nand2 from 2008-12-18:
- boot splash does not disappear (only after running `clear`)
- sometimes text on the terminal does not disappear either but stays
until it is "overwritten"
- no wireless device found

I do not know anything about kernel development, but I am willing to
help out by testing and what else I could do (without risking to brick
it).

Best regards,
Mitja

I think the best location is on

http://projects.kwaak.net/twiki/bin/view/Epc700/WebHome

near the instructions how to build a kernel.

Ard, can you please propose a location?

Bluez for Skytone Linux 2.4 kernel?

Hi all,
I have tried to connect a Hama Bluetooth USB stick and dmsg tells that  
the 2.4 kernel finds it as a USB device but there is no bluez on the  
standard installation. Is there an easy way to build&install the  
required kernel modules (through OE or Debian)? The eeePC loads Bluez  
out of the box for these devices.

This is twofold.
First you need the kernel Bluetooth stack and HCI driver. All of those
can be compiled as modules so this part should work.
The more problematic part IMHO is to get the userland stuff installed.
If you use your home-made rootfs then install them from the
corresponding source,e.g. Debian.
If you use the Skytone system you would have to have a compatible
toolchain first and build the BlueZ stuff yourself. Here it is a little
tricky since you will have to use the older versions without DBus -
latest BlueZ uses DBus for service interaction (hcid, sdp, etc.).

Welcome!

Currently, traffic is a little low because Nils has to push a  
different project and I am still focussing on getting my cross-gcc/ 
glibc run on *-apple-darwin.

Heh, and I am doing the most horrible work right now.
I have to prep tax incomes (yes, I am doing that for 2 months
now, that's how I dislike it). And they have to be done now, else
I get a fine :-(.

But yes, I was also thinking about going to the mediamarkt, and
stack up on some epc700. If I have time again, I will be able to
work further on them.
BTW: the letux 400 definitely beats the epc 700: the built in
wifi is the same as the dongle, but the usb port can be powered
on and off, and it comes with a bigger power supply to drive an
external 2.5" harddisk.
We only have to investigate the uboot further to see which magic
keycombo allows for booting a kernel without flashing (and which
keycombo allows for flashing over tftp :-) ).

Anyway, on to making accounting journals :-(
