Current Status of Mer on linux-sunxi

Booloader, kernel, graphics drivers, tools, xorg drivers have been packaged thanks to mdfe - now moved to a Nemo Adaptation layer https://build.merproject.org/project/show?project=nemo%3Adevel%3Ahw%3Aallwinner%3Aa20%3Aeoma68

Images which boot to xterm with working 3d drivers can be found at ftp://5.9.162.110/nemo/ . If you don't see your device ping vgrade on #mer IRC Images with Mer and Plasma Active can be found at http://makeplaylive.com/~notmart/Improv/

Instructions for a Qt5 eglfs (ie no X) setup can be found at http://martinbrook.blogspot.co.uk/2013/04/adventures-with-libhybris-and-andriod.html - Video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4PEIg6wOgWY

come and discuss on http://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=#mer

Images of both SD cards and images that can be flashed on the internal NAND can be found at http://makeplaylive.com/~notmart/Improv/

Here, in structions on how to produce images based on Mer and Plasma Active, tested on the Eoma68 (should be easy to adapt to other devices): Mer and Plasma Active

this is a quick hack (November 2012): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TWFvkZniHZc

its performance can be improved to an acceptable state (and even beyond that) due to these developments (February 2013): http://ssvb.github.com/2013/02/01/new-xf86-video-sunxifb-ddx-driver.html

from http://pengpod.com/blog/entry/new-images-uploaded:

Mer: This is a work in progress. This is a basically a snapshot of my previous attempts to use Mer. It will boot to a console but X will not start. I'm not quite sure what is wrong, maybe someone with more experience with Mer can work it out and share how they did it. This will only work on the 1000 right now but if you copy the 700s script.bin from the boot partition over I think it will work the same on there, this is an older image from before U-boot became device dependent.
