PostPosted: Thu 05 Jul 2012, 11:37    Post_subject: A new kernel was developed for the mk802  

Several developers on the miniand.com forum have built a kernel that solves most of the problems porting linux to the A10. The have a good version running Lubuntu. I know Barry did some work with Woof to produce a puppy build, but the kernel he was using was problematic. Now that there is a better kernel, can someone help me attach the Puppy packages to it? I have played around with Woof, but am not experienced enough to produce the .img. thanks

Yes, Cortex-A9 is multi-core, which is what the specification says.

However, Allwinner's Cortex-A8 already works fine playing videos (the Mele is a good example).

The MK802 will be a good tool for teachers using TV or multimedia projectors in the classroom.

The great thing about the Allwinner A10 chip is it's price
and the A13 is even less.


Code:
A10 is around $7 for 5 numbers purchase and around $12-14 for smaller quantities.

The first truly available Allwinner laptop is on sale for
$140 (including shipping) from Pandawill

height albeit with difficulty.

The problem with this laptop and its lookalikes is that they all *do not have* video out (VGA / HDMI) port, which means that you can't use it like a normal laptop. Otherwise, this is a great little device! More of this and UEFI stuff becomes irrelevant (who cares about Windows RT anyway).

I've personally been looking at all the tablets... cheaper and a usb keyboard are usually like ten bucks... but i'm worried about the touch screen... so i haven't jumped in. i don't think i have enough knowledge to get it working myself... so i'm waiting for someone to have success with one.

edit- i saw that a member has had success getting the screen to work and a keyboard but i didn't see a mention of touch screen (pm'd him but still waiting on a reply).

A forum member was able to get Puppy to work on a small

(800*480 ) tablet --->
