btw vogt your error is just that: in the bootscript you dont load the initrd, so you just have to modify the bootscrip with a text editor and add the initrd
? It works fine, I don't need an initrd! My kernel doesn't support it!
How much time does it take to render a frame? Is it just too slow for real-time rotation?
45 sec - 1 Minute without overclocking :-(

At first I thought the video was fake or misleading or that teachers hating to see calcs being used for stuff other than math ran into just that video, but then watched it and it was legit.
Yeah, maybe I should have shown my complete setup..

Some might think it is fake, others might think that there is a typo in Linucx.
That would be  :banghead:.. I know some who wouldn't understand it..

There's no lynx in the image.
You can use links, it's nearly the same.
To open a page, press "g", to quit "q".

Edit: How did you made it? Was it a mistake or an hardware error?

You should try compiling gnuplot.
Although you can get a better performance with the built-in from TI, here you go:

Here's a snapshot of both files (zImage.tns and rootfs.tar.bz2 (smaller and tar)): (29 MiB) (2 MiB)
If your firewall blocks dyndns, I'll upload it to dropbox.
Use `tar -xvf rootfs.tar.bz2 -C <mountpoint of usb-stick>`!
Then, if you don't want to wait at boottime, you can rename everything within /etc/init.d (e.g. `mv S85tinyhttpd tinyhttpd`).

Contents of rootfs.tar:
modular (Needs some time to start)
Some directfb tests and examples
dhcp client (Preconfigured for eth0)
wget (not tested)
blackbox window manager (runs perfectly, to run it create /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc)
xterm, xcalc, xclock, twm
gnuplot (warning: slow as hell!; you have to `export GNUPLOT_DRIVER_DIR=/bin` first; I was to lazy to search, I symlinked :D)
mplayer (not tested)
fbv picture viewer
e2fsprogs (not tested)
ntfs3g (not tested)
fdisk (not tested)
hdparm (128 KiB/s read from USB :-/ )
minicom (not tested)
iw, wpa_supplicant, wireless tools (not tested, needs own kernel to be built)
tinyhttpd, openssh
Not working "reset" cmd
vim (not tested)
No locale support (but keyboard layouts)

Of course you can also use debian or openSUSE armv5.

devtmpfs support
cdc_ether for networking
Swap support
Framebuffer with a dirty hack you don't wanna see (but it works and it didn't destroy my calc)
USB HID support
Sunplus Wireless Desktop support
No support for modules
No Initrd support (as it'd be useless without modules)

X and directfb are working!
Now we're one step closer to minecraft :D
Note: I can't login on SSH because of an german umlaut in my password and I haven't changed the keyboard-layout yet.
Note2: I don't know where that segfault came from, maybe too much ctrl-c? ;-)

If you boot from USB, you don't need an initrd, as there don't exists any modules needed to mount USB.
The zImage contains the kernel, without it it'd be useless.

openSUSE fits perfectly your needs.
If 12.2 isn't recent enough, you can use Tumbleweed (rolling release).

nothing happens....
Does really nothing happen?
I think there should be some usb-device-messages.
Try to plug your stick in after you can see the "waiting for root device"-message.

BTW: Don't use /dev/sdb1. The kernel waits for /dev/sdb (WITHOUT any partitions on it, only a plain filesystem).
But if you cant see any messages, we have some other problems.

I cant't get directfb to work. It says "current mode not supported".
I can see the current mode with "fbset -i" and filled /etc/fb.modes with "fbset >> /etc/fb.modes" but it still can't find any suitable modes.

The screen slowing turning white is a problem with the framebuffer driver. It should only happen when the LCD screen goes to standby or turns off.
Every second line goes white and then it's like turning off an old Gameboy Color.
Even if X exits, I can't get the fb to work again.
Maybe wrong mode set, I'll try to get rid of that.

Regarding the USB keyboard, are you connecting directly from the calculator or via a powered hub? Wireless dongles draw a lot of power and the USB controller might not be able to keep up (AFAIK, the calculator can only provide something like 8mA of current compared to the 500mA mandated by the USB specs).
I use an external powered 7-port hub. With my custom kernel on my laptop it doesn't work, too, but with a standard kernel it does.
It's a sunplus adapter, I think I only have to compile HID_SUNPLUS into the kernel.
Edit: The keyboard works perfectly. EXT4 too, with its journal the filesystem will survive system crashes.

Sadly I don't have an USB WLAN dongle but a Fritz!BOX Fon WLAN 7050 with integrated USB-Network card, do you know which modules it needs?

I downloaded the lates snapshot and it worked perfectly for me, but my USB Keyboard (2,4 GHz Dongle) won't get accepted as a keyboard.
How can I compile your kernel to add the missing driver?
If I clone you linux-git-tree, configure it with the obvious settings for nspire it can't find any USB-Devices ("doesn't acceppt address").
Could it be I forgot to disable High Speed? But I couldn't find anything.

With my custom rootfs I can get X running .. a bit. The screen slowly goes brighter until it's completely white but the console still stays active in the background.
If I type "reboot\n" it works.
I haven't tested swap but gcc works fine without it.

Edit: If I use your config (through /proc/config.gz) it still can't find any usb-devices.
Edit2: It seems I'm hitting a buildroot issue with X:

Thanks for your Linux port :D
