So firstly, this is what i did... Built a custom image of ubuntu 10.10 with the following:
After that, I installed mono-runtime, libmono-sqlite2-cil, gtk-sharp, ndesk-dbus... grabbed the latest zip (please make deb packages for linux...).
sudo rootstock --fqdn ubuntu-igep --login kev --password secret --imagesize 4G --seed lxde,gdm,openssh-server,build-essential,libqt4-dev,network-manager --dist maverick
Ran "mono Open\ Mobile.exe"
it brought up the UI however, I don't think gpu acceleration was enabled. It was unusable. Here's a pastie of top while idling:
Does OM have any sort of log file it uses? OM also complained that it couldn't connect to hal over dbus. both 10.04 and 10.10 have DeviceKit that replaces HAL.
That's my initial report for now. It's just a quick test before I go to bed. I'll run some other opengl demo's to make sure my drivers are properly installed/running.
EDIT: I ran some of the Qt QML demos and ran them. QML will use gpu/opengl acceleration if it's available and performance was surprising. I could get the cpu to shoot up to about 57% while flicking around the page enough to give someone a seizure. Because the cpu shot up, I'm not 100% sure i'm using the GPU via the drivers. I'll do more testing later. For now, sleep...
