Hi everybody,

I can now say that openSUSE 12.3 for ARM runs on the GTA04.The current state is a 
bootable image that runs on one sdcard partitionHere is what has been done:+ create 
dummy bootloader to take care of bootargs.scr generation and automatic symlinks 
/boot/{uImage,bootargs.scr}+ package neil-plus kernel+ set up USB Network 
( add Maliit onscreen keyboard to login screen+ modify lightdm greeter so 
the keyboard doesn't hide it+ modify the JeOS and XFCE packages of opensuse arm port to 
generate images for gta04

All the work is done in home:mayerjosua:GTA04 project on build.opensuse.org[1],Images 
are available here[2].

What could be done(not ordered):+ make rpm package of the powervr userspace libraries 
(I already did that for Mer) but its not so much use without DRI+ add gta04 patches on top 
of standard suse kernel+ add onscreen keyboard to yast2-firstboot+ Maliit onscreen 
keyboard improvement+ run touchscreen calibration on startup+ new lightdm greeter that 
fits our screen well

Feel free to haev a lot of fun with it.

RegardsJosua Mayer

PS: root-password is linux

The only thing that changed is that NetworkManager is now working. I wrote a python 
script that adds a default NetworkManager profile for the standard openmoko IP settings 
and Google DNS.
Then, when somebody logs into GUI the first time, NM will find this connection and activate 
it. Thereafter the connection will always be started automatically no matter if someone 
logged into the GUI or not.

If you want to update,run the following commands:
zypper install gta04-usbnet-networkmanager
systemctl enable NetworkManager.service

I attached teh python script for the curious people. It would certainly be nice to fix this so 
that even at first boot the connection gets activated before login into GUI.
