Spec Status (asac)

  • <alf_> we are a little bit behind

  • <alf_> but some tasks were blocked because of image problems, so we should be able to get them done soon

  • <tgall_foo> I'm basically entirely blocked on ofono until hardware arrives

Image status (kunal)

  • <kunal_> from last 2-3 days no image was there

  • <kunal_> due to kernel issues

  • <kunal_> i talked with Jamie Benlett he has resolved the issue

  • <kunal_> so now we can expect images

  • <JamieBennett> kunal_: they are available now

ST-E BSP update (fgu)

  • skipped

ST-E Board Bringup update (sudipj)

  • <sudipja> X started on latest Linaro kernel

  • <sudipja> A kernel patch to be released for X enablement

  • <sudipja> X working if palettes are disabled in xorg-fbdev

  • <sudipja> this feature is not supported inside the ste-kernel

  • <sudipja> Studying feasibility to independently disable palettes inside the mcde driver of ste-kernel

  • <sudipja> Also working with the kernel team to fix this bug

  • <sudipja> still working on fbcon, have to debug on own and fix as low priority with kernel team

  • <sudipja> this is all

  • <alf_> for the linaro kernel are you using the mcde driver?

  • <sudipja> yes

  • <sudipja> I have discussed with asac whether to maintain a seperate code path for fbdv

  • <sudipja> first checking if we can do anything with our kernel

  • [ACTION] sudipj to release kernel patch for X enablement

Graphics Update (jazh)

  • <alf_> jazh is not here, so I will say some things

  • <alf_> jazh has had good progress with clutk

  • <alf_> fixing many of the problems with gles2. He is testing stuff on freescale boards + gfx drivers

  • <alf_> With mesa drivers and sgx (BB) drivers I haven't still be able to test successfully so there is still some work to be done

  • <alf_> perhaps mesa will not work (because they are not fully implemented yet) but we should get them working with sgx

Multimedia enablement update (Sachin/vraj)

  • <vraj> memory to memory decoding is working on linaro kernel and rootfs

  • <vraj> it works using hardware decoder and using STE test scripts

  • <vraj> it works using STE bellagio as well as open source bellagio both

  • <vraj> h/w decoder registration works fine using GST-Launch tool

  • <vraj> but memory to memory decoding using GST-launch is not working

  • <vraj> so looking into this issue

  • [ACTION] vrag to investigate why memory to memory decoding using GST-launch is not working

  • <alf_> sachin is not here, so moving on

Linaro-handset-plasma (ian_brasil/rbelem)

  • <ian_brasil_> so we have fixed some bugs and the image now works :)

  • <alf_> great! Anything still pending?

  • <ian_brasil_> not to much..just testing really

  • <ian_brasil_> any way that we can get this automated somehow

  • <alf_> what part? the testing?

  • <ian_brasil_> yes

  • <alf_> the question is what exactly do you want to test?

  • <alf_> I mean, "test if the image is working" is pretty vague :)

  • <ian_brasil_> yes

  • <ian_brasil_> i just wodered if there was some automated testing we could sign up to, like iso tracker

  • <ian_brasil_> like what is the official.recommended way to do it

  • <alf_> I will have to ask asac about this, I don't think there is an official policy at this point for image testing

  • [ACTION] alf/asac to find out about official image testing policy

Meego status update (kunal)

  • <kunal_> script for daily git updates of kernel source is almost ready

  • <kunal_> output: tarball with kernel source for RPM creation

  • <kunal_> will send for review

  • <kunal_> this is meego

  • <kunal_> apart from that working on latest u-boot

  • <kunal_> internally STE using 2009.11

  • <kunal_> now took uboot from git linaro 2010.09-rc1.1

  • <kunal_> applied STE patches, facing some issues trying to make it work

  • <alf_> what kind of issues do you have with uboot?

  • <kunal_> build issues

  • <tgall_foo> kunal_, with your meego support what hardware are you planning to run on ?

  • <kunal_> STE boards, ux8500

  • <kunal_> some problem with uboot patches i think

  • <kunal_> will release the uboot patch for automatic sd card boot once it starts working

  • [ACTION] kunal to investigate uboot issues with STE patches

  • [ACTION] kunal to send script for creating kernel tarball for review

Agenda Additions (see below)

Alexander Sack (asac)

Alexandros Frantzis (alf)

  • Attended XDS2010
  • clutter
    • Synced clutter linaro packages with ubuntu ones.
    • Updated clutter linaro packages with fixes from Jammy and me.
  • clutk-gles2
    • Investigated and fixed some clutk-gles2 issues (now merged in Jammy's branch).
    • Trying out clutk-gles2 on BB with sgx drivers. Still investigating crashes that occur.

Frederick Gueydon (fgu)

  • Flashkit new package tested. Seems ok. Now available for asac and jcrigby in my account.
  • Need to complete the usage & board setup infos by mail.

  • Attempt with Kunal to get uboot 2010.09rc1.1 with u8500 patches working. Compilation ok after patches on serial_pl01x.c and drivers/gpio/Makefile. uImage write in emmc, but we have a "Wrong Image Format for bootm command" message for now.

Jammy Zhou (jazh)

  • Several clutk issues fixed, and only one new low priority issue to be resolved, which causes segmentation fault at end of test-clutk and is introduced by "/Menu/MenuRadioMenuItem" test case.
  • Try clutk on latest clutter package from ppa, and it can work with FSL EGL/GLES2 driver.
  • Merge three fixes from alf to my bzr branch
  • Try to push two patches to upstream clutter-cogl, now under review (Thanks alf for the guide)

Kunal Goel (kunal)
