Well, I think I was jumping the gun on the build. I'm thinking the boot failure is due to the lack of updated kgsl drivers, so I'm going back to the thunderc kernel to merge anything that looks relevant (like qtaguid support and such). That'll probably be done tomorrow, then I can give it another shot.
I am getting there. I worked on my spectrum last thu/fri and got a framebuffer console. That is a huge help. The slider and ov have a similar architecture so I'll try to get that going, it would be a huge help.
60 second old newbie ... joins to ask ... how goes the work on ICS for the slider?
Took a break to work on the spectrum. Sorry but my phone comes first. I learned quite a bit over the last week that should make this easier when I swing back around to it. Probably within a week or so.
