I am back from Solutions Linux  in Paris where we hold a booth. We also had a demo of
openSUSE running on ARM, on a Beagleboard xM.

a lot for doing this :). I like the costume part the most though ;).
SUSE was there with a "gecko guy" dealing some SUSE wristband.
It was very attractive to have a little ARM
board on our booth, lots of people come to our booth.
The demo was quite simple, it was only a video playing (Big buck bunny ). We did not
used the DSP accelerated codecs since it does not work yet with gstreamer but we used a
software player based on libav and designed for omap devices (Beagleboards (xM) and
pandaboards (ES)): omapfbplay.
The demo was running all the day without any problem.
omapfbplay is available on my personnal build service  and directly from my repo .
For the next booth, I hope to have a real little computer on my Beaglebord xM. (Xorg,
What exactly didn't work for you there? I did have Xorg running
on the xm before, though it was slightly flaky with the omapfb xorg driver, as that
exceeded the gfx bus bandwidth quite often, resulting in black screens ;).
I installed Xorg but I never succeeded to get it running in the short time I had before
the event. Must be some configuration files problems. I should retry later.
Maybe some hints to get it working? I installed xorg x11 (and deps) and xorg omapfb
As I said above, omapfb was flaky for me. I did tell this the upstream maintainer and he
did push some fixes to increase the available bandwidth afterwards, but I'm not sure
what the current state of things is.
To get myself going quickly back when I did this in December, I just snatched an fbdev
and ran that. It worked just fine :).
