* Fedora 12/13/14, Ubuntu 10.10 or other mic compatible linux distribution. * Required tools, e.g., qemu-arm-static and btrfs-progs * MeeGo Image Creator tool from MeeGo tools repository
Insert the suitable .repo file for you system from http://repo.meego.com/MeeGo/tools/repos/fedora/ to /etc/yum/repos.d/
For fedora 12 and later install the qemu-arm-static from Fedora 11 repository
sudo rpm -Uvh http://repo.meego.com/MeeGo/tools/repos/fedora/11/i386/qemu-arm-static-0.12.3-1.2.i386.rpm
Install the required package:
sudo yum install btrfs-progs
Create a working directory and copy your kickstart file there.
Latest kickstart files can be found gitorious (click appropriate branch and then tree). NOTE: When using the kickstarts from the gitorious repository shown earlier you need to use also --release= option in mic to get @BUILD_ID@ set properly. If you wish to build current daily define --release=daily.
There are also kickstarts available with the weekly build repos which will generate that specific weekly release.
Image will be created in working directory by default.
Packages will be cached in mycachedir to speed up the next image creation.
If you are behind a proxy, you can set it to mic by adding
sudo mic-image-creator --run-mode=0 --cache=mycachedir --format=loop --arch=armv7l --config=YOUR_KICKSTART
Create the image with following command:
sudo mic-image-creator --run-mode=0 --cache=mycachedir --format=raw --arch=armv7l --save-kernel --config=YOUR_KICKSTART
You will get a directory which ends with -raw suffix and file that includes vmlinuz in its name. The directory contains the *.raw file that is put to the memory card and vmlinuz is put to the N900 with flasher. For information on writing the image/flashing the kernel, see: MMC installation
warning: %post(libgcc-4.4.2-12.2.armv5tel) scriptlet failed, exit status 255
This is caused by SELinux, which can be disabled with:
echo "0" > /selinux/enforce
This fix is valid, until you reboot your device.
