Request for mapi in Evolution on B132

Hi All,

 So what I thought should be easy is not, looking at the issue of mapi support in Evolution on B132.

I need to build evolution-mapi, openchange and samba 4, that's what I know so far.

So I'll keep going on another system, not the C90S laptop my primary.

Something I can afford to have to reinstall :-)

Building Evolution 2.29.90 on B132

Hi All,

 So I got busy working on another couple of projects and had put of trying do more than small builds on B132.

This weekend I decided to tackle Evolution 2.29.90, my first try I downloaded the trunk spec files, using the specs to hand patch the evolution-data-server and evolution source.

I hit the first problem in evolution-data-server, an undefined variable called altzone, not sure where this comes from even now, not sure why it's not in B132, found a definition in another  piece of OpenSolaris code, popped it in worked perfect.

I even tried using the pkgbuild -ba on the spec files, it always used to work. This time I hit issues with build requirements for packages that do not show up in the package repository, SUNWgtkimageview being one of them needed by Evolution.

After half a day, I had everything built, fired up Evolution, it stretched over three of my compiz screens (could never get it to stop doing this), the all day events stretched over two days.

Conclusion, put 2.28.2 back onto the system, 2.29.90 will have to wait for awhile :-)

VB 3.1.4 on B132

Hi All,

So I downloaded and installed VB 3.1.4 on my B132 laptop, I have Fedora, Ubuntu and Windows 7 guests.

http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/3.1.4/

It really does feel a lot faster and more stable, I have not played with picking up a USB connected iPod yet.

My last blog as a Sun employee, we become Oracle on Monday.

I'm actually looking forward to the challenge.

Did you see the reply of the Americas Cup boat race

What a boat, they evn got the Sun, Solaris and Sparc logos on her.

B132 rge fix MSI Wind

Hi All,

 So to fix the B132 rge pcie problems on the MSI Wind you need to copy the B130 /kernel/drv/rge somewhere on the system after the pkg image-update, on the first boot after B132 update, copy the stored rge into /kernel/drv and reboot, the errors should go away.

For some reason the Xorg on my system is trying to load the 64 bit libglx.so, which stops compiz running, you can just link the /usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions/GL/libglx.so back to the /usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions/libglx.so.

What's pissing me off, is during a restart the link gets set back to the 64/libglx.so, not sure what's doing this yet.

USB sd card ready is not working now either, and cpu 1 is still running at 100% after a resume.
