The "olpc-utils and usable" build.


This build is very close to os14. Unless you are debugging boot
issues, skip os14.

What's new?

* Will trigger runin scripts if TS is set to 'runin' in the mfg data
(thanks Richard!)

* Normal non-debugging kernel

* mmp-camera: implement contiguous DMA operation. Load the module with
buffer_mode=1 for
    contiguous DMA mode.

os14 changelog

* olpc-utils is now (mostly) working, this means that
 - system boots straight into Sugar or switch to GNOME. Note! the
desktop switch currently gets stuck after X stops, you need to switch
to a VT, and execute "start prefdm"
 - starts on tty0
 - better config file - DPMS is off, dpi settings are more reasonable
 - overall, a lot less hacks in the build

* /bootpart is mounted as you'd expect (thanks to olpc-utils), and is
ext2. This means, among other things, that runin can now pickup a
runin.tar.gz from /bootpart .

To install:

ok fs-update ext:\os15.zd
