Tizen의 등장으로 Meego는 2011년 5월 이후로 추가 개발이 이루어지지 않고있다.
하지만, 요즘 윈도우즈 8의 등장으로 말이 많은 기기들이 있으니, 구형 Atom 프로세서를 기반으로한 장치들이다.
여기에는 주로 넷북과 태블릿같은 모바일이 강조된 기기가 다수 포함되어있다.
인텔에서는 이러한 Atom 프로세서와, 같이 붙어있는 주변 장치(그래픽 칩셋 등)의 지원을 중단해버렸다.
더군다나 안드로이드와 같은 다른 OS에서 포팅이 가능하도록 공개를 한 정보가 많지 않다.
PC용 안드로이드를 개발중인 분들도 우리 잘못이 아니니 인텔가서 따지라고 하셨다.
(Windows 8을 지원하지 않겠다는 인텔때문에 서명도 하고있다. http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/gma600/)
그래서 생각난것이 Meego 프로젝트였는데 확인 결과 소스코드에 이러한 장치들의 명시가 잘 되있었다.
이걸 참고하면 Atom을 쓴 플랫폼을 건드릴 때 좋은 참고자료가 될 것이라 생각한다.
* Meego repository - http://repo.meego.com/
* meego-os-base - http://gitorious.org/meego-os-base
* meego-ux - http://gitorious.org/meego-ux
일단, 그 가능성을 확인하기위해서 아톰 태블릿에 미고를 먼저 올리는 작업을 진행하려고 한다.
성과가 있다면, 안드로이드에서도 가능성을 볼 수 있을거라 생각한다.
Installing MeeGo on your Netbook
Linux developers Follow the steps on this page for downloads and installing MeeGo on your Netbook and you'll be ready to go mobile!
Windows Instructions Use a Windows app to install the MeeGo OS on your currently Windows OS computer.
Steps for loading the MeeGo live image on your netbook, nettop, or PC:
- Download the latest live image.
- Byte-copy the image to a USB drive.
- Boot the image on your netbook, nettop, or PC.
- CPU: Intel Atom or Intel Core 2 CPU (support for SSSE3)
Note: MeeGo will not work on non-SSSE3 CPUs
- Platforms with the GMA-500, Nvidia, or ATI graphics chipsets are not supported
- A tested netbook or nettop platform
About Live Images
The MeeGo live image is designed to be used with a USB drive. A netbook or PC can be booted from the USB drive without modifying its hard drive or configuration. This lets you test drive an image before installing it. When you are done, just remove the USB drive and reboot. If you like what you see, you can then install MeeGo from the same live image.
- 1 Download the Live Image
- The live image is available from the netbook downloads page. Save the image to a known location, so you can access it in step 2.
- 2 Byte-copy the image to a USB drive
- You will need a USB drive with at least the capacity of the downloaded image.
Note: A byte-exact copy of the image must be placed on the USB drive. It is not sufficient to simply copy the image file to the drive. Be aware that the contents of the USB drive will be completely erased.
- Image Writer (recommended, requires Python >=2.4)
Image Writer is a small python executable script that detects your USB drive and writes the image to it. The advantage of using image writer is that it will not inadvertently overwrite your system hard drive. Download Image Writer
# cd <directory with downloaded image-writer file>
# chmod a+x ./image-writer
# ./image-writer <image file>
- Use 'dd' from the command-line
Caution: 'dd' will overwrite any destination including your system hard disk. Make sure you know the correct value of <usb drive> before proceeding.
# dd bs=4096 if=<image file> of=<usb drive>
- Download the Win32DiskImager.exe program:
https://launchpad.net/win32-image-writer/+download (zip file)
- Unzip the file and extract the contents to a known directory
- Run W32DiskImager.exe (screenshot)
- Select the MeeGo image file (.img)
- Select the drive letter which corresponds to the USB key
- Click the "Write" button to byte-copy the image to the USB drive.
- Open a Terminal (Applications -> Utilities -> Terminal)
to get the current list of devices
- Insert your flash media
again and determine the device node assigned to your flash media (for example /dev/disk2)
(replace N with the disk number from the last command; in the previous example, N would be 2)
diskutil unmountDisk /dev/diskN
(replace /path/to/downloaded.img with the place you downloaded the image. You'll need your password for this.
sudo dd if=/path/to/downloaded.img of=/dev/diskN bs=1m
(where N is the number we found above) and remove your flash media when the command completes
diskutil eject /dev/diskN
- You're done! Proceed to Step 3: Boot the image
- 3 Boot the image on your netbook, nettop, or PC
- Insert the USB drive into your netbook, nettop, or PC and reboot. Make sure that the boot order tries the USB drive first.
Be sure the USB drive is unmounted before proceeding. Some Linux distributions auto mount the USB drive when it is inserted, which can cause corruption when writing.
# umount <usb-drive>
Use either of these two methods:
There is a simple way to put the MeeGo image on a USB drive.
Mac OS X Instructions
Be sure the USB drive is unmounted before proceeding. OS X auto mounts the USB drive when it is inserted, which can cause corruption when writing. You can press the eject icon in Finder or drag the USB icon to the trash.
Use this method (thanks to Many Ayromlou for the instructions):
