Dec 7, 2011

This is the Beta Release of MeeGo* 1.2.0 for the Cedar Trail Platform. The image name is meego-netbook-ia32-20111123.5.img.

This image includes components supporting the Cedar Trail Netbook chipset:

  • Kernel component: Enables the display driver and includes a kernel service which intercepts commands from user-space and passes to micro-kernels running on GPU. This code is licensed under GPL.
  • User Space driver (PVR545): Closed-source user space 2D/3D and media libraries. The user-space binaries can be distributed only as part of a pre-integrated O/S image. The sources will not be available for distribution or re-distribution. This code is IMG proprietary and supplied under the license included in the image at /usr/share/doc/psb-video-cdv-0.02/license.txt & /usr/share/doc/pvr-bin-cdv-1.7.275140_6/license.txt.

Test configuration

Hardware: Beaver Bridge FFVS Fab C for Cedar Trail-M (B2 step silicon)

Operating System: MeeGo 1.2 update - meego-netbook-ia32-20111123.5.img

BIOS: American Megatrends Version 2.00.1201, project version ACTCRB1.86C.0057.A00

Installation

No special install steps are required. See https://meego.com/devices/netbook/installing-meego-your-netbookfor instructions on how to load the image onto your netbook.

Important Notes

Graphics performance, as measured by the graphics section of the Phoronix test suite (http://www.phoronix-test-suite.com/), is still being improved. Also, running the 3DMark®Mobile benchmark test (http://www.rightware.com/en/Benchmarking+Software) will cause a crash.

SW Video codec support in this release is for Ogg format only. Customers needing hardware acceleration for video decoding of other formats will need to license codecs from a 3rd party, such as Fluendo (http://www.fluendo.com/).

An open source SW flash decoder is included in this build. An evaluation version of a HW accelerated flash decoder is available from Intel at: https://registrationcenter.intel.com/RegCenter/ComForm.aspx?ProductID=1618.

Be sure to select the “Flash_10.2_CDT” download for the MeeGo RPM, and follow the instructions in the release notes to install it.
