has updated the Pandora Linux kernel git repository. There is now a Linux 3.2 branch
available, which I have used to create a new ArchLinux Pandora kernel package. Unfortunately the keyboard issue
still has not been resolved in this kernel tree, which is why I again had to manually revert the changes that introduced the keyboard glitches. I don't know why this is still not fixed, but in the new kernel package the keyboard works just fine, of course.
I highly recommend to update to this new kernel, as it comes with several Pandora specific improvements, compared to the previous 2.6.37 kernel:
- More stable wifi connections
- Shutdown from within Linux (e.g. with 'halt') works now
- The second sd card slot works
To update to the new kernel, run the following command as root:
# pacman -Sy linux-pandora
Pacman will ask for a confirmation that you want to replace the kernel26-pandora package with the new linux-pandora package, which you should reply to positively by pressing 'Y'.
At this point you should restart your system. You can do that by executing 'reboot' as root.
Afterwards you might want to upgrade the rest of your Arch system:
# pacman -Syu
It is always a good idea to update the installed packages with pacman every now and then.
For those who might want to compile their own Pandora kernel, you can use my kernel configuration
, if you like.
