MeeGo/v1 Netbook-1


MeeGo uses rpm for software package, and the package management software is yum There are no image files for the updates. v1.0.1
or v1.0.2 can not be directly installed It is always required to install v1.0.0 first, then update to v1.0.1 and v1.0.2 orderly from the MeeGo
environment. From v1.0.0 to v1.0.1, wired internet connection is required.

Configuration of network has been changed. DNS is newly added to the network setting.

IP Address
Subnet Mask
  • Ether
    • DHCP
      Make the netbook to access the sites by the network as fill in IP Address of DNS server at DNS.
    • Static IP
      Establish the network as provide IP Address of DNS server and IP Address of Gateway to the router.
  • Wifi

    As MeeGo is installed or updated, it does not contain the wifi driver at the default settings. Open up Terminal, and install
    various tools for building the executable rpm. Download the the packages for wifi, and build the rpm with the tools. Then,
    install the wifi rpm.

    $ sudo yum install rpmdevtools
    $ sudo yum groupinstall "Development Tools"
    $ sudo yum install kernel-netbook-devel
    $ wget
    $ rpmbuild --rebuild --target=i586 wl-kmod-
    $ sudo rpm -ivh ~/rpmbuild/RPMS/i586/wl-kmod-

    For further details of the instructions, please visit this page.

  • DHCP
    Wifi DHCP connection does not require the same type of settings as Ether is needed.
  • Static IP
    To establish wifi connection with Fixed IP, fill in only DNS section.
    Either connection needs to set up IP Address of Gateway to router, wifi connection does not require such setting.


  • Bluetooth
    After Wifi drevers are installed, "ON/OFF" of Bluetooth is displayed at the network setting.
    After update to v1.0.1, the network setting does not recognize a newly added Bluetooth device.
  • Application Management 
    Add/Remove Software

MeeGo v1.0.2 Netbook Update

  • kernel version
    kernel has a minor update.
[beat@beat-desktop ~]$ uname -a
Linux beat-desktop #1 SMP PREEMPT Wed Jul 14 07:48:33 UTC 2010 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux


  • Wifi

    When MeeGo is updated to v1.0.2, the wifi function is neglected. To regain the wifi capability, make rpm adjust to the new
    kernel, then build it and install it to the netbook.

    $ sudo yum install kernel-netbook-devel

    rebuild wl-kmod-, which is used for v1.0.1.
    If this is the first time to apply this porocess or do not havewl-kmod-, obtain the rpm.

    $ wget

    Apply to the same manner as initially wifi function is added to v1.0.1, (re)build and install rpm.

    $ rpmbuild --rebuild --target=i586 wl-kmod-
    $ sudo rpm -ivh --replacepkgs ~/rpmbuild/RPMS/i586/wl-kmod-

    db of rpm is rebuild.

    $ sudo rpm --rebuilddb
    $ sudo reboot

    Then, finally wifi can be recognized.
