Download: xpud-0.8.5.zip (24MB)
We're glad to release a development version of xPUD, the whole OS image is only 24MB, comes with faster boot time (5.09 seconds on EeePC 701), and the user interface with small screen support. xPUD now can be a great WebOS platform!
This is a bug fixing version of xPUD 0.8 series with small modification, and all of these new features are for demo purposes only right now.
- Built-in Gears Support
- Improved Boot Time
- Improved plate UI
Because of the "App" tab is temporary replaced with "Web" to show how easily to mash-up with web applications, we also make Gears bundled with plate UI.
The image size is also reduced down to 24MB by removed media player, so the loading time is improved. You can get further result if the testing machine includes SSD.
640x480 resolution support is available and results good on small device like EeePC 701. The boot time is now auto-calculating by script.
- Limited hardware support, you may need to download rootfs and recompile kernel to fit your needs
- Boot time counts form boot loader to X starting by using /proc/uptime, so it may not be accurate
- You still need to take some move on touchpad/mouse to bring out plate UI while X is starting
- In addition to Gears, lxtask, gpicview and xclock are also included. You can switch back to App tab by using /root/plate/template/exec.html.bak
