Look once again on Xperia Tablet Z and try to have there openSUSE running natively as alternative operating system.

I'm able to work on that only during my vacations or hackweeks so there is still a lot of work to do. Previous history can be found here and here.

What to do now:

  • improve framebuffer experience before running X
  • find better driver for X than the one used now
  • check current status of upstream (either cyanogenmod and vanilla) - DRM video driver, Mali driver, ...
  • create dracut module specific for Xperia Tablet Z HW initialization
  • create RPM package with kernel

Looking for hackers with the skills:

arm tablet kernel rpm x graphics
