Here's the changes I've made to the image Daniel sent me.

Serial port garbage

This fixed the problem. I'll keep testing to be sure it's really needed.

I have simply added the following two lines to root's .profile:

stty -parenb -parodd cs8 -inpck -istrip 
echo 0 > /sys/class/tty/ttyS2/device/sleep_timeout

A better fix would probably be to just add the second line to a rc.d startup script somewhere.

This suggestion came from this posting.

Removed TI proxy

In the browser, under Edit menu, Preferences, then the network tab.


I have a brand now /home/root. Get it here. You need to get root.tar.bz2 and BigBuckBunny_640x360.m4v and their md5 sums, then:

  1. Run md5sum on each to be sure they transfered okay.
  2. Untar root.tar.bz2 in place of /home/root.
  3. Once done put BigBuckBunny_640x360.m4v in /home/root/esc-media.
  4. Then
# cp /home/root/bin/gles2_bc_autogain /usr/bin
# cd /usr/share
# ln -s /home/root/esc-media .

The first line will set the autogain on the PS EYE web cam when running the spinning cube demo. The second two put the esc-media where all the GStreamer demos look for it.

Check to see if this worked by double-clicking on the Big Buck Bunny icon on the desktop. The movie should start playing in gnome-mplayer.


I've installed the following via opkg

$ opkg update
$ opkg install synergy
$ opkg install gnome-mplayer
$ opkg install htop
$ opkg install alsa-dev

Make bash the default shell

chsh -s /bin/bash root
