Re: [OLPC-devel] writing nand flash on OLPC

Would you be able to take in an OLPC-specific .config file? The stream 
kernels still will not kexec.

Thanks

By "stream kernels" I suppose you mean the Fedora ones.

I have no problems at all to kexec from/to such kernels... 

What problem are you seeing?

OEPC: Tools for Wikipedia article selection and export

Git Tree: (web) http://dev.laptop.org/git.do?p=projects/soc-oepc
          (git)  git://dev.laptop.org/projects/soc-oepc

Status update:

* Markenstein: I've made some more progress on my parser, and discovered a
fundamental issue - parsing of /italics/ is shaky, as there's no good way to
keep it from interfering with Linux path specifications. Suggestions for
alternate italics-delimiters are welcome. (Note: we currently use *bold*,
/italics/, and _underline_) I've also done further benchmarking, and begun
profiling - it can parse between 150-200K characters per second on my
laptop, so even if performance scales linearly with clock speed, I'd expect
at least 25K characters per second on the laptop. Considering that the
traditional print page holds a maximum of 5.6K characters, this will
hopefully be fast enough with proper buffering.
     - BisonGen: Meanwhile, I found that certain important features of
                 Markenstein are impossible to implement with BisonGen,
                 so this path is temporarily abandoned unless we find
                 the current parser to be unacceptably slow.
* WikiFilter: I attempted to extract the parser from WikiFilter, to help in
converting wikitext to Markenstein, and got reasonably far with porting and
re-architecting the system - however, an alternative has emerged, which
should give us access to a well-proven, full-featured wikitext parser. I
noted that Magnus Manske's wiki2xml parser (written in PHP) uses a structure
*very* similar to what the Martel parsing framework utilizes - and Martel
could easily yield a faster parser with a smaller footprint.

Memphis:
New Memory usage tool

Git tree (web) : http://dev.laptop.org/git.do?p=projects/soc-memphis
Git tree (git) : git://dev.laptop.org/projects/soc-memphis

Status update:

All main UI has been re-designed, now Memphis uses horizontal and vertical boxes in User Interface. Plugin support gives to every plugin a tab
and a Drawingarea (some fixed are needed). New Pop-UP Plugin API allow to display messages from plugins, a new alert plugin has been included.
I'm still studing how exmaps works, I hope to include an optional exmap plugin to Memphis.
.
Next week's plans

* Fix drawing area / plugins issues
* Continue with Exmap

My focus has shifted slightly, and I'll be working with Project Gutenberg to
hopefully make their life (and this OLPC's life) easier with their catalog
system.  I've been learning Django (a really nice Python web application
framework, http://www.djangoproject.com/) in order to work on a web application
for keeping their catalog updated.

I've added "catalog.py" to my git repository, which is a little script to check
PG's daily RSS feed for updates and add it to one main RSS file.  It should be
working, but it's set up as a cron job on my laptop to test it over a couple of
new feeds.

Next week:
Work with PG to create the web interface to add/modify/search for entries in the
PG catalog.

Re: [OLPC-devel] Weekly work summary [8/12]

Hi !

Here's my weekly report for the "GTK+ Toolkit" project
(git://dev.laptop.org/projects/soc-gtk)

* You'll always find an up-to-date status of the project on the wiki
page (which also has updated screenshots) here:

http://wiki.laptop.org/go/GTK_for_OLPC

* Apart from the git repository, you can also find my code here :

http://www.manucornet.net/pub/olpc/

Done this week:

* Hacked Xephyr to make it swizzle colors just like the DCON chip
does. See screenshots on the wiki page.

* Finished integrating Federico's widget profiler with my theme
torturer, it now works well on all widgets and provides easy to read
time measure summaries (see screenhots on the wiki as well).

* Began hacking Xephyr to also let it perform antialiasing like the
laptop does (in progress).

* Made a detailed blog entry to let people know what I'm doing :) You
can read it at http://www.manucornet.net/blog/dreamerant/?p=39

Plans for the following weeks:

* Finish coding the antialiasing part.

* Work on the current version of the GTK theme to enhance performance
(now that I have a reliable tool to measure it).

* Figure out how to build sugar on my system (Dapper -- it failed
every time I tried until now).

* Implement missing draw functions of the theme, aim towards Diana's mockups.

Disclaimer (same as last week) : while the program itself ends on
August 21st and I will do the necessary to have achieved a good deal
of work at that date, I have always planned to *not* disappear on
August 22nd :o) The project is really interesting, Federico is a
*great* mentor (hope he still agrees to give me a piece of advice from
time to time after the summer), and the laptop won't be finished at
all. So plan to keep seeing me around working on these problems for
the next few months :)

Cheers,
Manu

Works fine with our olpc-specific kernels, has never worked with the 
fedora kernels.

[OLPC-devel] I need .config for olpc kernel

I have a linux-2.6.18-rc2 working fine.
But "pcm" device is not recognized and not configured.
Usin similar configuration in another pc pcm is working.

Where I can download a ".config" for kernel linux used in fedora-olpc
images?.


Thanks in advance

happy hacking!!

Hi,

I did not work on compiling OLPC kernel any more.
BUT I have opposite problem to you.

The place that you get kernels always has .config you want as below:

Please note that I d/l kernel-2.6.17-1.2366.fc6.src.tgz and got .config 
automatically.

like ==> kernel-2.6.17-i586.config as above indication.

BUT my problems is it has several hundread patches and I don't know what 
one to apply to get exactly rc-2 or rc-1.

If s/o has enlight me will be thankful.

I feel your pain. Is there a good reason NOT to use kernel.org kernels?
