Configuration file fixes for OpenSolaris B110 +

Hi All,

  I've upload the xorg.conf that works on the AA1, MSI, AA1-10 and Sumsung Q1 UMPC that allows compiz to work on the first login, note you cannot logoff and login, compiz hangs

The Samsung Q1 UMPC is actually running compiz really well, I've built xvkbd, I can now type with a stylus instead of keyboard, now I just need to get it to 800x600, the stylus is off by a few pixels.

  It also is having no issues with suspend/resume

  The system file works with the power.conf to keep the processor down to 800Mhz.

  I've uploaded the drm patch to allow for resume if compiz is running.

  gtar xvfj drm.tar.bz2

  cd drm

./cpin-i95.sh drm-suspend /kernel

New B110 + files

  /etc/X11/xorg.conf here

  /etc/system here

 /etc/power.conf here

drm.tar.bz2 here

Acer Aspire One and OpenSolaris B100a, Realtek, Atheros, SDCard and Video : Part 3

Realtek, Atheros, SDCard and Video

In general when testing a new system, whether desktop, server or laptop, I start by trying to get the video working first, then Lan and Wifi followed by the other devices.

I'm an old Linux guy so I always ln -s /usr/X11/bin/scanpci /usr/bin/lspci

The lspci gives me a list of all the PCI vendor and product IDs that Solaris X86 or OpenSolaris see's, sometimes the driver already is in the OS, but does not have an entry in /etc/driver_alises.

10/19/2008

Today I did a complete initial install and configuration in a single process.

I had previously used Partition Magic to halve the Windows XP Home partition.

So after installing SXDE B100a using option 4 so I can select ZFS.

After the system reboots the X server fails to come up these are the steps I use.

1. Copy the Intel and Atheros drivers of ftp://64.146.159.127/pub/

  -   directory              file

intel-945gme         intel-945gme-os-drivers.tar.bz2

acer-one-atheros  acer-one-atheros-drivers.tar.bz2

2. gtar xvfj the files

3. pkgadd -d SUNWatheros

4. update_drv -a -i '"pci168c,1c"' ath

5. cd atom-binaries/32

6. cp i915, agpgart and agptarget into /kernel/drv

7. cp  drm and agpmaster into /kernel/misc

8.  update_drv -a -i '"pci8086,27a6"' i915

9.  update_drv -a -i '"pci8086,27ac"'  agptarget

10. Create the xorg.conf from my other blog in /etc/xorg.conf

11. add the audio into the system update_drv -a -i '"pci8086,27d8"' audiohd

12. Remove the sdcard driver it's just getting in the way right now, pkgrm SUNWsdcard, hopefully we can fix this soon

13. shutdown the cde if running SXDE svcadm disable cde-login

14. start up gnome desktop if on SXDE and reboot

 svcadm enable gdm: init 6

or

 just init 6

You should have 1024x600 desktop with rge0 and ath0, plus audio, webcam just works with ekiga and cheese

This is my /etc/power.conf

I'm working on suspend next.

shift+F5 should jump you between lcd, externel and both on at same time

I tested doing this without having the external monitor plugged in at boot time and OpenSolaris actually found it without problem.
