Oh god that's sexy. I imagine it does everything it needs to now, right? Like run all of the GPEs we've become accustomed to? :D

Yes. Well, I hope to release an image tomorrow/next day that folks can use to test this out, of course, but for now the answer is a big fat yes.

Stay tuned .. and sorry for the double-post (those log files screwed up my edit) ..

Nice! will we be seeing a downloadable/installable version in the near future?

2 questions though.

1. whats libJudy?
2. why not throw in allegro while youre at it? I think someone fixed the no joysick problem just a week or so ago.

Looks good

"Judy is a C library that provides a state-of-the-art core technology that implements a sparse dynamic array. Judy arrays are declared simply with a null pointer. A Judy array consumes memory only when it is populated, yet can grow to take advantage of all available memory if desired."

libJudy: see above. its just been in my toolkit for a while, and i figured the GP2X is as good a place as any to test the ARM port ..

Allegro: could do .. the goal has been to get OPEN2X ready as a platform, so .. folks can build on it whatever they want ..

For those that are interested the tool chain we have put together for kernel development is based on...
  • GCC 3.4.4
  • gLibC 2.2.5 (For some layer of GPH compatibility, still may need a splash of work)
  • Binutils 2.16.1
There are some kernel and makefile patches to the various components to make sure everything builds and runs clean on the above tool chain including all the libs (yes, that includes hardware SDL from Paeryn)

Before anybody says why not use GCC 4, 3.4.4 is these best GCC you could use to build 2.4.25 of the Linux kernel without some very major work. 2.4 was never designed to fit with GCC 4’s code controls and the ARM kernel patches just add to the murk.

The current feeling is to clean everything up and commit everything to SVN.

The eventual Open2x firmware will most lightly consist of an SD based root file system and kernel.img and will require a boot loader capable of booting kernels from an SD card. That includes ART103’s U-Boot and there will be an Open2x version for U-Boot to coincide (near enough) with the firmware release.

As for stock compatibility, watch this space for info. Statically linked executables made with the range of GCC 4 based tool chains should run without problem as the memory setup and initialisation are the same.

Does this mean that open2x has reached a state where there is a filesystem and also sound hardware supported? Did you try to run anything major on it yet? Am I getting too excited and talking out of my ass? So many questions...

In the Open2x "Build Script Mothership", there is a compiler, kernel, a filesystem, libs, drivers, apps. All can be built 'clean'; that is, with no obvious errors, and no third-run hangs from boot. Lots of testing left to do; but it 'should' be smoother working from here on (based on Linux governance).

As of right now, sound hardware is untested. i wanted to just let folks know the progress on Open2X because a few days ago it was a compiler mess, today its a full-build scenario with *lots* of untested components.

Did you try to run anything major on it yet? Am I getting too excited and talking out of my ass? So many questions...

Its a little hard to have a video-game-athon in my gp2x-hacking environment.. and it was late when we finished the 3rd test-build, so i decided to take a break from it ..

I have not done much more than run my own test app which is geared at a lot of the libs .. tomorrow I will find a fair swatch of .gpe's to use to test the image, and see how far I get ..

Pardon my complete ignorance in this field, but will this provide the backbone for alternative GP2X firmwares?

What about the modified bootloader, I think it reports itself as 1.0.3? Can we have that included, and compile confirmed?

Thanks,
David

Not sure about a 'backbone'. It is an alternative Linux based firmware complete with kernel and file system (well that's the aim). This 1st release is really aimed at developers or users with specific needs (i.e. MIDIShare, funky custom kernels etc.) who want to hack about with the GP2X rather then end users but as things like alternative menus mature that will change.
It’s also non invasive so your stock GP2X setup stays on the NAND and this all sits on an SD.

Not quite sure what you mean.

The only boot loaders floating about are based on U-Boot 1.0.0. This includes the official GPH boot loader and community versions like ART103's. I have personally been doing some work to upgrade the core version of U-Boot to 1.1.4 for a number of reasons but I not released anything (who wants a boot loader that just currently bricks there GP2X ;)).

All you would need to run Open2x firmware is a version of U-Boot for the GP2X that supports booting a kernel off an SD card. That includes ART103's version of U-Boot and all Open2x versions but NOT the version that ships on the GP2X.

Updating the boot loader on your device is not something people should really be doing on a regular basis, in fact you should only every do it if it adds some feature you need to your device.

If the GP2X stock boot loader supported booting a kernel off the SD then a boot loader change would not be needed.

Come any release we will try and document that thoroughly and make it very clear what your options are.

Oh, as regards ‘compile confirmed’. I can confirm the Open2x U-Boot will build fine with the tool chain being used for the rest of Open2x firmware.

This is great news. I hope you add python and pygame as stock parts of the distribution - I see a moderately polished "open2x" distribution displacing the official one quite easily.

Hi Guys,
Whats the status of getting this stuff into SVN?
I just checked the sourceforge svn viewer, and it looks like its not there yet :(

I've built myself a serial cable now and I'm ready to get hacking!
Thanks for the great work, hope to play with it soon.

Not much, you? :)

Just got Paeryn's HW accelerated SDL working on my gp2x, so now Im looking to get USB networking up :)

Anyhow, have a good day....

Its been a long time since I replied to this thread, but for sure things have not slowed down on the Open2X front .. check out http://open2x.org and get on the mailing lists, where there are active discussions about the new effort to produce an Open2X firmware .. the more people getting involved, the sooner it'll happen, and a lot of progress has been made by some of the other Open2X guys that will shortly be obvious ..

On that note I will write up a summery of the recent list discussion and post it to Open2x.org as a news post.
