Food

The sponsor is also taking care of food for the attendees. If somebody have any particular preference/need (like vegans or allergies) please contact the Local Contacts.

Agenda

I have been thinking some issues that would be helpful to tackle, please feel free to edit (or append to) this information:

  • Embedded Debian in general
  • X running on EmDebian

  • Improve build infrastructure (toolchain and target packages)
  • Prepare uClibc port (other C libraries would be also nice to have ) instead GLIBC (toolchain and target packages)
  • Improve support for balloon and NAS devices
  • Integrate Emdebian filesystem images with the Debian Installer
  • Narrow down uninstallable packages on armel/testing
  • Support SH cross toolchain

Announcements

Attendees

Please add you own name, e-mail address, country ([http://www.iso.org/iso/en/prods-services/iso3166ma/02iso-3166-code-lists/list-en1.html 2-letter code]) and airport of origin ([http://www.photius.com/wfb2001/airport_codes_alpha.html 3 letter code])

The number of attending people is strictly limited to 20, for lodging reasons. In case the final count exceeds that number, choices will have to be made, sorry for this.

Flight tickets status

Madrid Airport warning

All flights are going to Madrid, they have a new Terminal 4, a.k.a Terminator 4. Be aware, that people lose baggage and flights because flying gates are 20-25 minutes away from security point, and a long way from checking point. Take this as a *WARNING* and please take care with your baggage. Also baggage handling is automatic and i think they really need some emdebian geeks to stay over there for a couple months fixing their stuff. Please *DO NOT LOSE YOUR GADGETS*.

Ie, try survive with just hand luggage!

Sure

Hardware and interests

Since we are embedded, instead of say, s390, getting target hardware transported is easy. One of the advantages of meeting physically we exploit is meeting with systems you don't deal with usually. putting them in handluggage is good idea :)

  • Per Andersson
    • I would like to work on adding support for partitioning MTD flash into parted/partman. This would make it possible to install Debian onto MTD flash, naturally.
    • If someone has the possibility to bring a Linkstation Pro/Live we could probably add support for it into d-i on site.
    • I will bring my Buffalo Kurobox Pro and two USB serial consoles.
    • I have not looked at uClibc nor dietlibc, yet, but I am interested in them both.
