MeeGo on the Joggler

Image generation instructions on

Kickstart file can be found [here]. This will force a xserver 1.6 version, so we can get IEGD working.

You will need to have a Fedora chroot or VM and, as root, run mic-image-creator as follows:

 mic-image-creator -f loop -c base-joggler.ks

This will generate a file you can subsequently mount -o loop to a path, and rsync -aHx to a filesystem.

There is some information on the changes made to the standard Meego kernel config

MeeGo Extra Instructions Ubuntu Karmic

Add mic2 repository to /etc/apt/sources.list

"deb /"

sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get install mic2
mkdir meego

Get base-joggler.ks -

Make IEGD_10_3_Linux.tgz - Intel IEGD Configuration Editor - - Registration Required

dos2unix base-joggler.ks
sudo mic-image-creator -f loop -c base-joggler.ks

Common instructions for both O/S

sudo mount -o loop meego-0.90-base-joggler-2010xxxxxxxx.img /mnt

Move contents of mnt to partition 2 of a joggler

sudo rsync -aHx mnt/* /media/sdX2

fixup the kernel boot line and fix kernel modules

ln -s in /lib/modules

On joggler login root/meego

Setup eth0

ifconfig eth0 hw ether 00:11:22:33:44:55
dhclient eth0
ifconfig eth0

Ssh into joggler

Meego 1.0 Those over there are not giants but windmills

  • IEGD Driver

This demo was put together using this .ks file and the procedure above

Again thanks goes to stskeeps for the original .ks and method.

  • EMGD Driver

Netboook UX


Handset UX

  • Note the EMGD packages referenced in the KS are no longer available, the build will fail with 4 packages left to download*

Google for the RPM filename that fails to download, you should find links to download from alternative sources, place the files into the mycachedir2/emgd/packages directory and run the mic-image-creator command again.

If you cannot find the emgdgui package then open the .ks file and remove the line referencing emgdgui.

Intel have now release official EMGD drivers,

When I get chance I will update the kickstart files.

1. install image creator from meego git.

2. create a working directory.

3. download and copy in emgd-netbook-joggler.ks or joggler-ivi-emgd.ks , bzImage, joggler-fat-partition.tgz
Netbook UX, Daily trunk has new Xorg so this has been superseded by
IVI UX, , Version 2 mouse and kb working,
Handset UX,

4. create .img file

Netbook UX
sudo mic-image-creator  --cache=mycachedir2 --format=loop --config=joggler-emgd.ks --run-mode=0
sudo mic-image-creator  --cache=mycachedir2 --format=loop --config=joggler-ivi-emgd.ks --run-mode=0

5. mount loopback

sudo mount -o loop <image name>.img /mnt

6. With a 4Gb memory stick create a 50Mb FAT16 partition and the rest as a EXT2 partition

7. Write to ext2 partition on a Jogger stick the contents of /mnt

sudo rsync -aHx /mnt/* <stick ext partition> . Get beers in.

8. Write the contents of joggler-fat-partition.tqz to fat16 partition

9. Put in Joggler and boot.

9.5 If you have gone with the IVI UX you should get the UI. If you have opted for the netbook follow the instructions below.

10. You should get the firstboot screens (language, timezone etc) you don't have keyboard for username but don't worry

11. The screen will then blank. Don't panic

12. Use Alt+F1 to get a login prompt

13. User: meego Pw: meego - you may need to use Alt+F1 again

14. su Pw: meego

15. telinit 3 - to stop uxlaunch

16. vi /etc/X11/xinit/Xclients

if [ -x /usr/bin/twm ] ; then
 exec /usr/bin/twm
if [ -x /usr/bin/mutter ] ; then
 exec /usr/bin/mutter

17. startx - should bring up UX - close clock and xterm

18. TODO - work out why uxlaunch does not bring up X, sound, wifi, ethernet

For IVI UX at least, neither wired nor wireless ethernet come up automatically and there doesn't seem a way to configure them in the gui. The following fix causes DHCP to work on wired ethernet.

edit /etc/rc.local and add in the following lines at the end (using your mac address)

/sbin/ifconfig eth0 hw ether 00:00:de:ad:be:ef
/sbin/ifconfig eth0 up

reboot, and eth0 should be working using dhcp
