Image ID: linaro-m-headless-tar-20100803-0
Milestone: Alpha 3
Profile: Linaro Headless
Release Cycle: Linaro 10.11
- A small Linaro headless image with basic OMAP3 beagle board support (reported working on other architectures with minimal changes).
A new software archive rebuild with GCC 4.4.4, CodeSourcery enhancements and ARM-related improvements.
- Support for OpenGL ES development through MESA.
- GPS support via gypsy and geoclue.
- Netbook user interface capabilities with the latest EFL software stack.
- Some Ubuntu Maverick users reported problems with the linaro-media-create script. Evaluation showed that those users had gnu-fdisk installed. One work-around is to remove the gnu-fdisk package and use fdisk from the util-linux package instead. Next release will address this feature by moving to sfdisk.
