May report

This month I did not do much hacking, as I was pretty busy with repairing in my house. But here's list what I did:

  • Tried to run opie on Zipit Z2. It's pretty stable (but damn slow, maybe due to rotation?), opie understands kernel keymap, just don't use sticky modifiers, it does not understand them. Battery support is not working yet in opie.
  • Made my own mouse emulator, it's simple and configurable. Going to use it with my distro for Zipit Z2
  • Hacking on something jlime-like (Xfbdev + matchbox-desktop + echinus + dzen2), and not oe- but buildroot-based. It's not ready yet.
  • Added proper rotation support to qemu, now it's easier to test different Zipit stuff (especially, Xfbdev rotation)
Also I'm going to buy iPAQ rx3715 to hack Linux kernel for it.
