New Arch Linux image for the Zipit Z2

2014-01-25 12:11:02
With all the recent activity around the Z2, I thought it might be worth it to create an up to date Arch Linux image for the Z2. Although it is theoretically possible to update my old image, it is quite some pain to actually do so. So what I did is take an official system image for an ARMv5 plattform from the ArchLinuxARM website and modify it to work with the Z2.

Debian Wheezy Image for Seagate Dockstar

2013-05-12 20:59:03
I've been running Arch Linux on most of my machines, including the Dockstar, but I am getting more and more annoyed by the horrible system breakages that occur regularly when updating Arch. The amount of maintenance required is just too high for my taste - even for a rolling release distro it does not have to be that bad.

So I decided to install Debian Wheezy on my Dockstar, which, as it turned out is not as easy as I would have liked. There is no image available like there is for Arch, which is why I packaged my installation after going through all the trouble getting a working system.

Gmu 0.9.0 released

2013-02-15 22:06:41
It's been a long time, but here I am, back with a new Gmu release.

Gmu with default theme with new nice large font

Gmu 0.9.0 comes with the lots of changes (and some bug fixes). Some of the most important ones are:
  • A much nicer large font (Pandora default and compo themes, pixeled by hand :)
  • Some additional characters in both large and small fonts (including the µ character due to popular request)
  • A new ncurses terminal text frontend for Gmu (usable over the network!)
  • Experimental WebSocket browser interface (also usable over the network)
  • Support for Joystick axis control in SDL frontend (to support devices like the Caanoo, that come with analog controls exposed as a joystick)
  • The current playmode is now always visible in playlist view in the SDL frontend
  • Gmu has been changed such that it uses UTF-8 encoding internally for all text
  • Support for building Gmu statically has been added (in addition to the default configuration where Gmu's frontends and decoders are build as runtime loadable plugins)
