http://opensource.indt.org/omapbuilds/ -> this is good thing.. something finally to give a bird's eye view of things.. mebbe a tiny perl script will manage to do a daily bootlog.. gotta figure that one out..
The interesting part is that SDP3430 looks hellua lot better that these.. Brain, Brawn and Beauty = SDP??
Anyways, sneaky open labrador... in org.. mebbe it is not time for me to announce, but keep watching TI's offerings for Developers like you and me.. finally boards we can afford, and pretty cool ones too :)
Hmm.. after a long line of trial and errors (and blunders) i am posting this off my wifi connection on my linux boot.. :) on my way in kicking Vista offff my laptop..
anyway, since i plan on doing this all over again, here are the steps: get the binaries of iwlwifi (http://intellinuxwireless.org/) iwlwifi-1.2.25.tgz mac80211-10.0.4.tgz (did not need this) iwlwifi-3945-ucode-18.104.22.168.tgz
Get the kernel source: sudo apt-get install kernel-source-2.6.22
unziped the kernel, had to play a bit of stupid tricks such as sudo ln -s /usr/src/linux-source-2.6.22/ /lib/modules/2.6.22-14-generic/source + copy the .config and build files from kernel-header-generic in /usr/src/... to the source directory.. then buidl iwlwifi: a simple "sudo make", copy the firmware: cp iwlwifi-4965-ucode-22.214.171.124/iwlwifi-4965-1.ucode /lib/firmware/ and the same for 3945
sudo make install blacklisting the ipw3945 driver: /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist add the line: blacklist ipw3945
