Re: Debian on ARM Chromebook?

You need the marvell wireless firmware, either from the chromeos image, or marvell firmware git: http://git.marvell.com/?p=mwifiex-firmware.git;a=tree;f=mrvl;h=1c9f11abd12c3e69149207d63a8ea2ee9458b9e9;hb=HEAD

in order to get the wifi working.

Marcin, did you even look over my version of vboot-tools. I really think mine is better because it fixes bugs and runs the test suite successfully. I did consider joining my packaging with your git, but after looking after it, and upstream releasing a stable branch, I went with my tree, and incorporated alot of stuff, like package descriptions, from your and Tericino's work.

I like working with you both, and wonder out how to get my OpenEGL/GLES working that you apparently have gotten working.

This is not a x86 laptop Mark, this is the ARM chromebook, although all the linux kernels build from the same chrome kernel git repository.

I wrote a howto [1] for installing Ubuntu 13.04 but it can be easily
adapted for Debian. The differences are where from to get
packages/binaries needed to sign kernel and manipulate partition table.

You will need "cgpt" and "vbutil_kernel" binaries which you can take
from ChromeOS or rebuild Ubuntu packages or grab "vboot-utils" from
Debian NEW queue and rebuild it.

For kernel I strongly suggest using one from Ubuntu:
linux-image-chromebook-3.4.0-5. It also may need rebuilding for Debian
due to different dependencies in both systems (like firmware package
which has other name).
