Sorry about the delay on these images. I didn't realize until just a few weeks ago that Wheezy also has an armhf port. My information was outdated since I always use Sid. People have been requesting Wheezy since certain applications need it. Other people seem to think that Sid is too "unstable." Personally, after using Sid for a couple of years now I can say that it is very stable. That is especially true when compared to the Fedora I use on my x86-64 systems. Sid also has much more recent packages. But some people need Wheezy. Some people want Wheezy. So here is Wheezy!

The rootfs is a minimal image directly from Debian using debootstrap with only SSH, wireless tools and the kernel modules.

Here is the Debian Wheezy armhf rootfs.

The Debian Wheezy LXDE rootfs is a minimal LXDE rootfs.

The Debian Wheezy LXDE armhf 2GB SD image is a full bootable SD card image using the rootfs above.

Hello. I use the basic rootfs with lxde and lightdm dm. I wrote in /etc/modules that

#Multitouchscreen driver for my A10 Tablet PC
ft5x_ts

But xorg didn't detect the touchscreen

[    31.528] (II) config/udev: Adding input device ft5x_ts (/dev/input/event1)
[    31.529] (II) No input driver specified, ignoring this device.

altought I use evdev xorg module as a multitouchscreen module for xorg
[    31.528] (II) config/udev: Adding input device ft5x_ts (/dev/input/event1)
[    31.529] (II) No input driver specified, ignoring this device.
Facing exactly same problem with A13 tablet with Ubuntu 12.04, please update if you found any solution.
Thanks

ft5x_ts module must have multitouch disabled to work with the existing xorg evdev driver. That is not in the std. kernel images. You must edit the driver config in the kernel source and then recompile the kernel to get it to work.

It would be a good contribution if somebody did this, using the existing kernel, config, and toolchain, and then posted the module. Then people that want the module could simply d/l it without needing to recompile the kernel.

Personally, I won't do it. I have a BT mouse/keyboard which is much more functional than the ts could ever hope to be. IMHO the xorg input driver needs to be fixed instead to support multitouch. We should be adding features, not removing them. The ts has limited utility in the existing Debian desktop anyway. It is not accurate enough to be functional.

Do it the easy way. Buy a cheap mouse. . .
Hi,
These images are gone now. Where can I get them.
I'm specifically looking for the Debian minimal image to use it on a Cubieboard.

Thanks in advance.

Cubie sells it. . . Ask him! He's the one makin' money off the old things. . .

You need an updated image and not the one from this thread. Many things have been updated since this old thread was started. It is best to use a script so that you get the latest kernel, video drivers, and all the latest Debian packages.
404 for the links with images? Any newer version/thread avaliable?
I have a problem. my rootfs show 2g size .but my sd card is 8G size. why is small ?

2G is the image size. You can scale it up using gparted.
Can you fix the links?????? They are all 404 Not Found
Can an updated kernel be installed on a mk802ii a10 ?
