Samsung Q1 UMPC and OpenSolaris B111

Hi All,

It's been a busy and sometimes frustrating week.

The MSI is basically all working with B111 apart from the touchpad not working after resume and the special keys for sound, etc.

The AA1 is working apart from the sdcard (just testing a patch right now) and the function keys.

The AA1-10 I did an luugrade to B111, now it's taking about 20 - 25 seconds to suspend if I close the lid, I'm doing a clean install of B111 as I'm starting to not trust luugrade anymore.

My friend Dave Stewart gave me a Samsung Q1 UMPC awhile ago, I just got it out of the computer storage device (closet) and install 0906.B110 which worked pretty good, I had to build the myk driver.

 Then I followed the instructions to add the Sun package extras to be able to build. Total nightmare, ate the pkg management system.

I've gone back to good old safe Nevada B111, the touchscreen is actually working.

As this UMPC does not have a keyboard I'm going to build xvkbd, it will pop up a keyboard on login screen, plus any time I ask for it.

 It's been a while since I tried this so it may take a few attempts.

 Tom's work on Autoscan Network is magic, I actually got a vnc session to come up in the lower right panel, you can select a different machine, then come back into the gui, slick.

Anyway have a great weekend. I'm going to hang it up, two of my grandkids are coming for the weekend, Nona's birthday tomorrow.

OpenSolaris B111 on AA1

Hi All,

So somehow I screwed up an luugrade on the AA1, I've ended up doing a clean install of B111.

Apart from having to install the DRM patch, which should hit the next build B112, everything works great.

Compiz, suspend/resume, ethernet, wifi, even the two SDcard slots are coming up without all the errors at boot.

Shutdown is really fast.

I've found that ccsm to config compiz is having pygobject errors, if you just rebuild it ccsm works fine, I opened a P1 bug on it today.

Tom has ported Autoscan Network 1.42, I'll try and get it onto the new data store tomorrow.
