OpenZaurus 3.5.4.2-rc2

Today I released third testing version of OpenZaurus 3.5.4.2 version. It support only two models:

  • poodle (SL-5600/B500)
  • tosa (SL-6000)

I decided to do not ship collie (SL-5000/5500) images as they need some work (for example they lack udev) and as usual there is a problem to get OPIE/GPE images fit in this small rootfs space.

The most important changes in this release:

  • touchscreen on tosa does not show heartbeat like it was before
  • sound on poodle works — does not generate random noise

I want to mention our kernel hackers: Richard Purdie and Liam Girdwood for sound fix, Mike Arthur for touchscreen fix. Without their work this release would not happen.
