    Ubuntu for Dell Streak 7

    First off, this is for the expierenced users only. I will not help you out with this, and I will not fix any bugs you post. I will take care of this as I see it and as the code on Canonical's side develops.

    REPEAT: I WILL NOT CARE ABOUT YOUR BUGS


    What works:
    Boots
    Touchscreen


    What does not work:
    Sound
    Wifi


    To do:
    Fix resolution

    Device Tree
    https://github.com/giveen/android_de...e/ubuntu_touch

    Kernel Tree
    https://github.com/giveen/kernel_del...e/ubuntu_touch

    Build 3:
    Boots!, thank you f69m here on xda

    Step 1. Flash CM10.1 Beta 1 nvflash from the CM10.1 thread
    Step 2. Boot into recovery, factory reset, then format data
    Step 3. Flash Device specific flash -> https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B0oz...it?usp=sharing
    Step 4. Flash Ubuntu File -> http://cdimages.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-to...blet-armhf.zip
    Step 4a. Reboot
    Step 5. Download http://d-h.st/eFQ
    Step 5a. adb push libc-2.15.so /data/ubuntu/lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/libc-2.15.so
    Step 6. adb reboot
    Step 7. Run these commands
    'adb shell'
    'ubuntu_chroot shell'
    'vi /usr/bin/ubuntu-session'
    Find the "grouper" , move your cursor over to the 'g' and then press X, untill grouper is gone
    Press ESC, then press I, and then type in "Streak7"
    Do the same thing basically on "GRID_UNIT_PX=(adjust the number)"
    Press ESC, then press : (<-colon)
    Type in 'wq!" and press enter
    type in "exit"
    type in "reboot"

    Set "export GRID_UNIT_PX=8" and "export QTWEBKIT_DPR=1.2"







    You will need to keep this plugged in, as there is apps crashing and no power management feature yet, so battery burns quickly. The only thing you can do with it is interact with it via adb shell.

    Fair enough.
    We are about to discuss a new kernel starting next weekend, this will probably solve quite a few issues.

    Since this is LInux, Grub may well be possible some day in the future.

    I would like to see Ubuntu run. Cm10 would be nice, but I would use Ubuntu for everyday stuff for work and school. If I had a computer that worked would like to help you out Giveen .. Keep up the good work
