OpenMoko 2007.2 on Palm TX (UPDATE!!!)




After a few days with some problems to build an OpenMoko *.ext2 image for my TX I get the new UI run on the Palm TX!


Here is a quick guide:

  1. Get the TX-Kernel from here and unpack all to the SD-card.
  2. Download the rootfs, copy to the /linux folder on your card and rename to rootfs.ext2 or build your on rootfs with the MokoMakefile (you have to edit the /build/conf/local.conf and set MACHINE="palmtx", IMAGE_FSTYPES = "ext2", IMAGE_ROOTFS_SIZE_ext2=102400)
  3. Edit /etc/Xserver to adjust the DPI settings and add:
    "Palm TX")
    ARGS="$ARGS -dpi 150 -screen 320x480 -hide-cursor -root-ppm /usr/share/pixmaps/xsplash.ppm" ;;
  4. Generate a swap file: dd if=/dev/zero of=swap.fs bs=1024 count=65536 and copy it to the /linux directory on your card.
  5. Tap Cocoboot and see OpenMoko booting!



I want to thank Marex, |miska| from Hack&Dev and the guys from OpenMoko IRC for their help!

Greetings, zefanja

Schau mal: http://blog.mikeasoft.com/2007/07/01/openmoko-on-a-treo-650/
Die GSM Unterstützung wird wohl meiner Meinung nach für immer auf sich warten lassen.

So this is a quick guide, is there a Long guide easy to understand?
This would be pretty smoking cool if I could get it working.

Could you either make a guide or email me all the created files (Swap files and such) and a quick guide?
Thanks

ok...some people ask for a more detailed guide: I think the guide is clear enough.

Download the tx-kernel from the first link and then build your own rootfs with the MokoMakefile or download the image I build (its from Sep 2007). To do Step 3 you need a ssh connection to your TX. Search "usb networking" in wiki.openmoko.org. Run Step 4 your linux terminal.

Openmoko on TX is slow, maybe very slow.

this is very nice thanks zefanja :D

i would like to try openmoko 2007.2 image on my tx but i dont have a linux machine

could you upload it (i think you uploaded the 2007.1) please?

thanks again for the tutorial zefanja

zefanja hat gesagt…

the image is a 2007.2 one. But I recommend you to build a knew one because things changed and new apps are availible. You can also build a qtopia image with OpenEmbedded or the MokoMakefile.

I did what you suggested, but now i am stuck at the final 'make fso-milestone5.5-image' Can you please tell me what the correct 'make image' line is?

Sorry to bother you with this simple question... I got the kernel named: "tx-vanilla-kernel.tgz" uncompress, took the root from the link as "OpenMoko-openmoko-devel-image-glibc-ipk-P1-September-Snapshot-20070912-palmtx.rootfs.ext2" and rename it as "rootfs.ext2" in the linux folder, but when I try to load cocoboot I got a message "No root filesystem found!" tried to rename the others "initrd.cram.gz" and "initrd.squash.gz" and didn't work either, also changed the ROOT value in "linux.boot.cfg" but had no luck, can you point me in the right direction please? I managed to run Opie, but I want to try openmoko... thx for your help.
