There are two images:
- ltib4-with-x-20130618.tar.gz – This image was built with the FSL gnome release package configuration, which includes X-Windows, gstreamer-acceleration, and GPU acceleration.
- ltib4-no-x-20130618.tar.gz – This image was built with gstreamer-acceleration and GPU acceleration, but without X-Windows.
Each of the images can be extracted to a single-partition SD card formatted as ext2/3/4 like so (assuming that your SD card shows up as /dev/sdc):
~/$ echo ',,83,*' | sudo sfdisk /dev/sdc ~/$ sudo mkfs.ext3 -L ltib /dev/sdc1 ~/$ udisks --mount /dev/sdc1 ~/$ sudo tar zxvf ltib4-with-x-20130618.tar.gz -C /media/ltib/ ~/$ sync && sudo umount /media/ltibEach of these was built using the mx6qsabrelite configuration in LTIB, but the kernels were replaced and boot scripts added by overlaying the build output with this tarball, which is a recent build from our boundary-imx_3.0.35_4.0.0 kernel branch.
To test the gstreamer acceleration in each image, we used the gplay command-line player and placed a video fw.flv into the /root directory.
root@boundary:~/$ gplay fw.flvTo test the GPU acceleration, we exercised a number of the Vivante tutorials:
root@boundary:/opt/viv_samples/vdk/$ ./tutorial3_es20 -f 1000Both images are configured with a single user: root (password “Boundary”), and are configured for DHCP on the ethernet port and to automatically start an SSH server.
Wi-Fi is configured in the kernel, and the firmware files for the TiWi device are present in the filesystems, so you can perform a first-pass test like so:
root@boundary:~/$ ifconfig wlan0 up root@boundary:~/$ iwlist wlan0 scan iwlist wlan0 scan wlan0 Scan completed : Cell 01 - Address: E0:91:F5:CA:DE:FE Channel:6 Frequency:2.437 GHz (Channel 6) Quality=45/70 Signal level=-65 dBm Encryption key:on ESSID:"mySSID" ...There are a bunch of new features in this release, including support for the Wayland X replacement, but we haven’t tested those. Our intent is to provide working images to test the kernel.
