I don't suppose anyone has seen the Vega kernel source anywhere yet?

I've compiled up the generic NVidia kernel source from here but the device doesn't boot (using android-tegra-2.6.32 head). :P

Just a thought Paul but the Vega is based off Shuttle's P10AN01 OEM design ... Might be able to find the source code for that instead.

Hi, as someone said before,.. i am a long time listener... and this topic is quite interesting. (btw, im still waiting my vega from pixmania,.. £191,.. hopefully a bargain)

My reply is just to ask Paul if he has tried the git from android kernel for tegra. Seems the kernel is a bit more recent than the stock one. (there are heads for 2.6.34, 2.6.35 and 2.6.36) and last update was few hours ago. Check this URL
http://android.git.kernel.org/

or http://android.git.k...a.git;a=summary

* EDIT: I think these URLs are more appropriate
* git://android.git.kernel.org/kernel/tegra.git
* http://android.git.k...ernel/tegra.git
* https://android.git....ernel/tegra.git

Let me know your thoughts (while i wait my vega :P )

CrK

PS: btw, good job Paul as usual

No source from Advent yet and the nvidia developers kernel does not boot the Vega when compiled. I have mentioned this a number of time to @AdventVega on twitter.

I'm trying the viewsonic G tab kernel now.

@AdventVega, never let us down yet with news. He has said its on its way.

Lets give them a few days after the break to get things together.

It looks as if Advent are looking at releasing the Kernel source code for the Vega by the end of January!

You are a regular ray of sunshine Lenny!
Care to share what you base your suspicion on? My personal view of @adventvega is a pretty well organised outfit (low stock being a small fly in that ointment, but likely that was beyond their control).

I mean literally... i assume they already have the kernel source available it doesnt need to be compiled? could they not have released it the same day as the tablet itself?

They have to make sure that any non-public components are removed. This can include things like the kernel module for the touch screen (depending on which touch screen was used).

There is a lot of opportunity, with kernel source, to add new functionality and hardware support, fix bugs, improve performance etc etc. As an example, several of the custom ROMs for other Tegras already provide native NTFS and CIFs support. Should also be possible to add hardware support for a whole bunch of new devices including USB - think 3G!

If I've helped you, you want to say "thanks" and you do not use Dropbox (it's enormously useful, especially with mobile devices), please consider signing up for it using my reference. You'll get 2GB of disk space for files available anywhere, any time on any device. They give us both an extra 250MB if you do sign up!
