Just a note to all those running 11.10 xubuntu/ubuntu - I advise against letting your systems update. It could work - if you pinned X. but it most likely will break

Hi BuZz,
Is there any chance you could share the kernel source code tree (including config) as the device mapper module is missing which is required for an LVM2 setup I am intending to create using the Joggler?

i link to kernel patches and config on my site - http://joggler.exotica.org.uk/source/ - http://joggler.exotica.org.uk/source/kernel/3.2.16/ being the latest kernel stuff that applies against vanilla 3.2.16 kernel source - I can provide a pre-patched tree if you need it. I'll make a note to include it in my next kernel.

I should be able to build a kernel from the config and patches that are available from that link. I'll let you know if I do have any problems.
Thanks for providing these.

How easy/hard would it be to swap to rt2800usb rather than rt2870sta? I'd like to use Master Mode (to turn these little beauties into wireless extenders using Master mode), but the rt2870sta doesn't support master mode.

Is it just a matter of doing rmmod rt2870sta && insmod rt2800usb somewhere? Can I edit a hotplug.d file to blacklist the rt2870sta file? I'm kinda reaching the end of my Ubuntu knowledge here!

Cheers!

check out /etc/modprobe.d/joggler.conf - need to comment out the rt2870sta one and uncomment the rt2800usb line. (run depmod after)

Hi, I am running Xubuntu 12.04 downloaded from exotica and I have come across a problem very early on....as soon as I type in any letter using the Florence keyboard the text box, word processor etc fills up with that letter. For instance if I am trying to change the date from 2005 when I go to enter my password and type in j the password box it thinks I have typed in j ad infinitum. Florence looks like it is operating normally.

Booting the joggler off of my old 11.10 Xubuntu is fine so it isn't a hardware problem.

Thanks

Hi Donhulio - I've found using the OnBoard keyboard (under Accessories) doesn't have the same issue.

You can temporarily resolve the issue with Florence by going to the settings icon (The spanner on the left hand side), swapping to "Touch screen" and then swapping back to "Mouse", but to be fair, I found that doing that occasionally provoked a crash in X...
