I'm new to Angstrom and I have some questions that I hope you can answer :)
I'm running GPE on an hx4700 iPaq.
First of all is this the right place to ask hardware specific questions
- ie related to the hx4700 iPaq?
To date, the latest kernel in the downloads for my machine is:
But when I run ipkg upgrade, the latest feeds bring up modules for more
a more recent kernel 2.6.21-hh16 iirc.
The question is, who is building the kernel for the hx4700 and can I
hope for an hh16 build to appear? I'll be more than happy to help with
this if needed, which I doubt given the quality of your releases.
Second question, I can make bluetooth work by running hciattach manually
but the gpe bluetooth launcher can't do it (it used to work fine in the
good old Familiar 8.4).
Finally, I was quite surprised to see how well mplayer runs on here. The
hx4700 has an ATi Imageon chipset: is it supported or do we use another
video device? I can't find which kernel module drives the video chipset.
Is it even conceivable to have XV support?
Thank you and Grats for the high quality feeds. This is the best distro
I used on my iPaq.
