Is there anything outstanding we need to get it integrated so thats pnp?

Yes.  pnp booting also needs tackling, I have been testing two approaches, in the long run uboot is the preferred method. 

There are two options:
1. uboot network boot (preferred)
  - provides complete pnp
  - no user interaction with sdcard contents
  - dd card image once
  - sdcard contents unchanged
  - move the card to a new PI and a new MD will be created.
  - initial boot kernels and MD kernels fully managed by core
2. standard pi boot (not preferred)
  - mostly pnp
  - dd card image
  - sdcard contents change after initial MD creation
  - move the card to a new PI, user must alter sdcard or re-dd image
  - kernels managed entirely on the sd card
  - initial dd images must be updated as kernels change

I was working towards the uboot functionality but uboot has still not matured entirely on the pi.  I need to take another stab at it but much of the functionality for the rpi is still awaiting merge in uboot.  I have been applying patches to the source for testing.  Kernel parameters do not pass consistently with uboot on the pi.  I believe I know the issue but haven't had a chance to implement/test anything.  Essentially there is missing piece of code that copies the aggregated kernel parameters to memory location where the kernel is expecting them to be.

Trying to resurrect this - phenigma how far has your builder progressed - or is it like me - been on hiatus?

-Coley.

Not sure specifically what you mean by how far my builder has progressed?  I had previously built all the packages for raspbian/armhf and they are up at dropbox for use in sources.list.  It has been a few months since I've done a rebuild of those packages but they work just fine with a 1004 core.  I have been puttering away the whole time.

I have a full MD running on 512MB RPi, photo-screensaver and UI1 with USB-UIRT.  Full MD with screensaver crashes on 256mb rpi.  The only piece of the puzzle that is missing is an omxplayer (a la mplayer_player) to handle media playback on the pi.

MD creation is essentially worked out, I have copious notes and have been working on updating scripts for proper MD functionality with as little alterations to current scripts as possible.  I have been waiting for 1004 release and lifting of feature freeze so I can request svn access and update everything I have here into svn.

Talking with golgo we decided that a UI1 based MD on rpi is the way to go until qorbiter matures more.

So... if there is anything that people could/should try to work on it is an omxplayer for pi mds.  With that we would have essentially complete MD functionality on the rpi.

Now to actually put them to some use...  need to use the knowlege a little.  :)

I'm missing: 1,5,6,10,11 From group #1 and I did not even know of the existence of anything in group #2.

Any you could provide would be great!

Are these available anywhere?  The links below aren't working and only half of the screencasts are available at localeconcept...  Thanks.

Guess I'll have to get a third Pi now to test the extra mem ;)

You and me both.

Forever we have told people DO NOT dist-upgrade. This is an attempt to undo that. I may just write a script that dist upgrades and changes those links if they don't point to the right place.

This should be included as people upgrade so systems are not broken.  dist-upgrade is *required* any time our packages bring in any *new* package.  (my 2 cents)

Very nice!  I like the additions to the orbiter display.

Question:  Licencing is typically a very touchy subject around here and most people seem unwilling to discuss it.  But, would the licencing require (as GPL requires) the release of source changes/upgrades on request?  Or are these changes isolated from the public now?

Very good!  I'm glad someone else has tested the changes and things are working as I hoped.  My big question is:  Have you managed to get qOrbiter running yet?  I haven't had the time to get it going.  As soon as we have a build scenario for qOrbiter I'll flush out the MD creation more completely.  I've been running standard SDL orbiter on my (moon)Pi for some months now.  We are very close to having a working accelerated X on Pi which would allow SDL orbiter to function more fluidly.  qOrbiter is still the way to go moving forward of course.

Maybe should start a new topic

Very nice.  http://www.raspberrypi.org/archives/2180 <- new version of the model B shipping with 512mb ram by default now.  Should make running things a little snappier.

QEMU is slooow.  I build in VMs all the time, and building with qemu in a vm is very slow.  I'm away for the remainder of the week, I'll get to posting my createbuilder script this weekend.

Sorry Coley, been really sick and very busy, I haven't forgotten, I am delayed though...  I plan to get to this ASAP.
