    v1 v2  
    11The resources and ideas are mostly from alex,
     2Do as what alex said, until we set up the ssh and login to root using password 'root'.
     3I use kernel from sleep_walker, if ssh do not work, you should 'modprobe g_ether' or
     4'echo "modprobe g_ether" >> /etc/modules' first to enable usb networking.
    3 Do as what alex said, until we set up the ssh and login to root and using password 'root'.
     6It's better to adjust the time, using 'date 041612342009' (it is 2009-04-16, 12:34)
     7the year calculating is not the same between palmos and linux, a working workaround is
     8adding a line 'BADYEAR=yes' to /etc/default/rcS, so the year will not be considered every
     9time we read or write from hardware clock. But the one-day-later issue still exist, I
     10haven't find a way to solve it.
    5 To set the time, we should use --badyear for hwclock option.
     12To overcome the various hardware config problems, I use hal to auto detect the device,
     13'apt-get install hal'. Hald starting is a little slow, if you do not like it, feel free
     14to struggle with all the config files :)
    7 Then do a 'apt-get update' and 'apt-get dist-upgrade' to the most recently packages.
     16Then 'apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade' (I use sid to get the newest softs).
     17During upgrading, there will be some questions, please answer them carefully.
     19Install X: 'apt-get install xserver-xorg-video-fbdev xserver-xorg-input-tslib xorg',
     20and desktop, e.g. gpe, 'apt-get install gpe'
    10 =======to be continued.========
     22Configure the touchscreen, 'apt-get install libts-bin', and run
     23'TSLIB_TSDEVICE=/dev/input/event1 ts_calibrate'
     25now we have a working X and gpe desktop, could manually start it by 'xinit && matchbox-session'
     26or you could 'apt-get install nodm' and 'echo matchbox-session > .Xsession', then edit
     27/etc/default/nodm to enable nodm, nodm will start X for you as long as linux boots.
     29We could not type symbols on treo's keyboard, so I wrote a little xkb keymap file
     30'cp treo680.xkb /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols', add XKBMODEL="pc105" and XKBLAYOUT="treo"
     31to /etc/default/console-setup, 'setupcon' will setup the keymap. If you use hal, X will
     32use the same keymap automatically (Thanks to XKB!).
     34I'll upload a rootfs image later when I have a better network connection.
