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

This will set the autogain on the PS EYE web cam when running the spinning cube demo.


I'm not presenting GStreamer, but I'd like to have the demos. Lots of media at /usr/share/gst-media


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
