My next assignment

Hi All,

 So it's been fun working with you all, I've been asked to work on another project for my group that does not include Solaris X86 or OpenSolaris.

 Hopefully when the project is complete I will be able to blog about it.

Modifying my desktop look and feel

Hi All,

So I'm trying to build my own Android package, I've already got a good Android  ISO and USB install built.

I've got the Eclipse software installed on Ubuntu 10.04 with the Android plugins.

We are trying to get JavaFX running on both the X86 and ARM versions of Android.

My other team mate in Chicago has come up with some really cool JavaFX programs.

I took a learning break yesterday and rebuilt Evolution and the Gnome Panel on B142.

I took Evolution up to 2.30.2, with the gnome panel 2.30.0, I put the menus back to the way we first had JDS and integrated Evolution back into the clock. It was a fun relaxing exercise.

Now I'm back learning Android and Java, took awhile to get the Android plugins into Eclipse, but it's done now.

Another little project I started on vacation (you have to do something when your German family is chatting away in a foreign language to me) is called throttle launcher, it has allowed me to replace the standard Windows Mobile 6.5 look and feel on my HTC phone with one that looks and feels more like Android, this is much better than actually running a real version of Android on startup, the battery is lasting much longer.

Hosed my AA1 10 inch

Hi All,

 So it looks like luupgrade is not working very well at all, ended up with B112, B115 and B116 on my AA1 10 inch, could not boot anything at all.

Good news is a clean install of B116 fixed the problem :-)

Everything works off the DVD but the Attansic ethernet controller, I downloaded the latest atge driver from http://homepage2.nifty.com/mrym3/taiyodo/eng/, looks like they solve the problem of the netbook hanging up if you did a big file transfer.

Compiz is working fine, the Atheros wifi is fine, sound buttons are working without having to adjust in gnome-keyboard-shortcuts anymore.

Suspend / resume is working fine after setting up the /etc/power.conf, I've posted this is an earlier blog entry.

The suspend works fine from the right click on gnome-power-manager in the gnome panel, closing the lid does get it into suspend mode, but it takes about two minutes before the system actually reacts.

I just downloaded and tested the Intel Moblin v2 and tested on the AA1 8 inch, it looks really good, I'll load up a spare hard drive into the AA11 10 inch this afternoon and do a full install, I also have it installed in VB 2.2.4 and it works fine also.
