  • ArCom - IVI

    Hi gang,

    I have been trying out IVI images and Simon introduced me this to this new effort. I had it installed for about a week and here's my first look at 0.9.

    Pros:

    - Installation was straightforward. After removing the pre-installed /etc/X11/xorg.conf file -- the touchscreen setup app started and resulted in a working screen with little effort.

    - UI is simple and straight forward.

    - Bluetooth gps works out of box (or so has been reported).


    Cons:

    - Not all the features of the IVI are implemented in this version (ie: photo, dialer, etc). As the layout is now, I'm not sure where they can be added.

    - No options to configure things like bluetooth and audio (although Simon promised those are coming).


    Overall, this effort is something I will keep track of as the UI is significantly better than the default from the standard meego IVI image. You can find the image here: http://www.arcom-ivi.de/index.php?op...emid=8&lang=en

    Very cool. Is this MeeGo 1.1 based?

              Thanks for the reply.
              Reading helps.
              So far I've gotten the touch-screen calibration app to start but, it will still loop until xserver is halted.
              It may be a problem with the i915 chipset.
              I'm going to try importing the /usr/lib/dri/i915_dri.so from another computer. They should be compatible.

                roblem booting up ArCom - IVI after install

                Hello

                I am not sure why this is happening but after I install the ArCom it reboots but gets stuck and keeps on reloading a black screen untill it freezes and says it will stay idle for 5 minutes before reattemting to reload. It seems to be an issue with the xserver as this pops up.... xserver is halted.

                I have tried fresh installs but get the same errors. If anyone has had this problem or anything close would be good if could pitch in any tips I am still researching possible fixes.

                  This was also noticed by Nasa, xorg.conf file disturbing in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/
                  remove it and it should work. Was calibration working ok?

                  cheers

                      I was just thinking "how fast is nasa going to ask this question..."
                      Well I am not able to give the exact date. Previously it was supposed to be january. However BT HFP tests did not go well. And since MeeGo 1.2 was going to be released promptly I hesitated to do the release. Right now M1.2 has a lot of improved packages and I would like to test a bit more.
                      So depending on how long the nights are going to be I will do the release within the next 2 weeks, means at latest 8th of April.

                      cheers

                        Well,

                        You know BT HFP is still @$!% up, Right?

                        And (having followed the meego effort) promptly maybe an overstatement. They just solved the touchscreen bug, for a set of specific devices, which caused QT and XI2 not to work together. That *fix* only works for screens supported by the tsc2007 driver -- which I'm guessing isn't the majority of guys here.

                          No calibration was not working, I beleive it says that it was not able to complete it I have to wait till I get home to check, is there a way to get to any of the /etc files even if the system wont boot up into the OS.

                            After removing the Xorg file the calibration routine would come up but, it would simply loop.

                            I had to remove the calibration from the startup in order to get the GUI to even display.

                              Strange, I will check the sequence again, could you:
                              1) ls me your /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ and the attach input of its files
                              2) give me your graphics card

                              Oh yes I am aware of it alright, but at the moment there is no ather way to go, so i get the best I can. Some of them bugs come from the dialer etc. software itself, and arcomivi does not use it directly.

                              And yes you are right, this might become an overstatement, but I still have faith in MeeGo Otherwise I could dump my project just right now.
                              So let us go small steps forward.
