Could you please post your version of picuntu RC3, so I can download it?
I would be so grateful.


I seem to have lost my modified version of picuntu-RC3, but I'll post a link as soon as I can

This should work. You will need to modify the /etc/networking/interfaces file to get your internal WiFi adapter connected. If you have any problems with this feel free to PM me.

You will also need to download and flash the olegk0 kernel I mentioned in one of the first posts of this thread.

Good luck!

Would people be interested in purchasing these with all this stuff and PoMoCo pre-loaded? I imagine a lot of people would like to avoid the headache. There would be very limited support, and it would have to wait until after Sparki ships, but I can literally walk down the street and buy these here in China.

Thanks. I am downloading now and will try it tomorrow. I did get my wifi working before with the rc2.2rfs but had trouble with the lightdm. Will an ethernet dongle work with your version?

That must be amazing. Any idea what the going rate for a unit is?
If I had my time over again I would have bought an MK908 because support is much better and Im pretty sure there is a very easy install process now

I honestly can't remember if it worked, but it should.

I have just tested the rootfs and can confirm the internal wifi modules works when used with the olekg0 kernel.
I ran the following commands to get it working

Code: Select all
sudo nano /etc/notwork/interfaces
and change the eth0 to match your nework


Code: Select all
depmod -a
to reload the modules

then reboot and you should be able to confirm it is working with the command ifconfig

Hi,
Thanks for your helpful last post. That sounds like just what I need to do, but I can't flash the oleg0 kernel at the moment coz using the rkbatchtool 1.5 and 1.7 gives the error 'failed to download file', when i tell it, in the top field where my recovery.img is. This sounds easy but I'm stuck. I've only ever flashed the Finless 1.7 rom and the PicuntuKernelInstaller4.zip. by using their tools. How do you flash a kernel anyway?

Sorry, I've never used the rkbatchtool to flash a kernel. I've only ever used the ROM_Flash_Tool_137 that came with the Finless 2.1 ROM. It only works under windows (not windows 8.1). I can only help you with that if you need it
