Gosh, what has happened to all of the good threads?!? All the good ndless programs seem dead... :(
Anyway, has anyone gotten this to work recently?
Running linuxloader2 just sits there, showing the last thing that ndless rendered (some micropython stuff in this case).
Same thing happens when running from the start_initrd.ll2.
TI-nspire CX, OS 4.5.0.1180, ndless 4.5.0, latest linuxloader builds from tiplanet.
Hope somebody can help me, because this is like the coolest thing ever to me.
I am on 4.3 and it works just fine for me.


On an unrelated note, the hackspire wiki states that the touchpad driver for the DTB kernel is still waiting to be merged into mainline...has this happened yet?

If not...where do I find it?
I want to cherrypick it into my own branch if it hasn't been merged after this long.

(clickpad non-CAS)
Old kernel speaks to me in machine code and doesn't turn on the USB hub, new kernel does turn on the USB hub but always says it can't mount the VFS on "unknown-block 0", tells me to please change my configuration, and then proceeds to show that there are no storage devices besides RAM.

I have a CX and I wanted to put Linux on it, but my hardware revision (AE) does not allow for that. I managed to get a copy of linuxloader2 that could run, but the kernel still has problems. A glitchy screen appears, and the screen goes black. I modified /drivers/gpu/drm/panel/panel-simple.c and now it does not go black but has a glitchy screen that changes over time. Does anyone else know what else to change to fix this? I think it is a screen buffer issue.
