Will BUG WiFi still be supported when BUG 2.0 comes out.

The short, official answer is No.  However, with most of the work on 2.0, I’m trying to make it pretty easy for legacy users to receive the upstream benefits from our work on 2.0.  This is a multi-faceted question, with a multi-faceted answer.

For instance get updates. Or is BUG 2.0 going to be the new main focus.

2.0 is definitely the focus.  But…

  • SDK:
    • Pretty much 2.0-only right now.  There were many changes to the osgi-bundles corresponding to the base, to the modules, etc. 
  • BUG-SW:
    • 2.0 only (trunk, in svn). 
    • It is possible to build Angstrom for the mx31-based BUG, but there are a few pitfalls here and there that I’m trying to smoothe out and document. 
  • Legacy code/artifacts:
    • The repo is still online for the mx31 BUG
    • The rootfs images are still available for download
    • Older SDK will work against mx31 BUGs
  • Modules
    • This is a bit complicated.  of our NEW modules, many will not work with the mx31 BUG.  Namely:
      • New BUGcam
      • New BUGvideo
      • New BUGview
      • New (modded) BUGlocate
    • Of the old (i.e. bought before our 2.0 launch) modules, the following will be incompatible with 2.0 (base):
      • legacy BUGview
      • legacy BUGcam (unreleased)
      • legacy BUGlocate
      • BUGbee (preliminarily, more SW work to be done for compatibility tests)
      • BUGsound (preliminarily, more SW work to be done for compatibility tests)

Ideally, when the dust settles around 2.0 work, this will be picked up a bit.  My work-items (and I would love some help from our loyal community) would be:

  • Provide a branch in svn for the BUG-SW based on oe-stable (just like 2.0) but for mx31
  • Provide a branch in svn for SDK builds for mx31 BUGs running the aforementioned Angstrom hybrid
  • Update our repo to provide access to BUG packages for the mx31-Angstrom hybrid SW
  • Document necessary HW/SW mods to support legacy modules, where possible, on Base2.0
  • Document necessary HW/SW modes to support new modules, where possible, on mx31

There are many cool upgrades that 2.0 gets that are really independent of the fact that we’re using new HW.  Some reasons why people might be interested in using our new platform on their mx31-based BUGs:

  • Built against oe-stable, access to Angstrom’s feeds
  • openjdk-6-zero replaces phoneme
  • possibility of using BUGbase-wifi + Libertas Thinfirm driver for BUG-as-AP with hostapd (this will require some significant driver-rewrite, not a freebie)



I hope this answers your question.

It’s not that hard to backport some of the bug 2.0 changes,

The main thing to do is openembedded integration. I started doing it but because of an hardware screen issue I stopped.

Basically here’s the status:

Normally it should boot and start the usb0 interface permitting you to ssh in it, but I  don’t remember if usb0 comes up at first boot or only at the second one. I’m firing a build to check.

Then here’s what it will take to make it work:

  •  Fix the calibration issue: there is many ways to do it: add a calibration scripts that uses tslib_calibrate, I made one but I can’t test it anymore and  add the calibration file or switch the kernel driver to evdev and make it calibrate with xinput_calibrator
  • fix the windows manager loading: the bug 1.x can have 2 screens, and so it need special handling of x-window-manager starting in /etc/X11/Xsession.d
  • openjdk which is in openembedded must be checked for seeing if it works well
  • optional: add the progress bar on the monochrome bubase screen

And finally a bug image should be made, for now I’ve only a sato2 image that is not in oe yet.

I should really look after fixing my hardware screen issue I bet.

For those who had to wear a princess wedding dresses that would be used for
regular occasions after the wedding, many brides would decorate the dress for
the special day with temporary decorations.The “traditional” wedding guest dresses as known today didn’t appear
until the 1800’s. By 1800, machine made fabrics and inexpensive muslins made the
white dress with a veil the prevailing fashion. By the nineteenth century, a
bride wearing her bridal and
after the wedding was accepted. Re-trimming the dress made
it appropriate for many different functions.As times passed, women’s fashions
changed. Hems rose and fell, but the long bridal dresses designers, with or without a train,
remained the length preferred by brides. Sleeve lengths and neck styles changed
with the current fashions, but mainly remained modest. Full sleeves, tight
sleeves, sleeveless styles bridal fashion came and went and came again. Simple
designs to elaborate have been found over the years
