Camera working

We've got some progress to report.  The camera driver is fixed.  Attached is a screen shot from the PengPod1000.  I have been using fswebcam to test and it captures without problems.  Ekiga seems to crash during video calls (or audio calls) but the preview window is pulling in the video just fine so I'm thinking the problem is with Ekiga.  I might try and take a look at that later, if any body is familiar with it, please leave a note on the forums here.

Packaging work is under way now and we are on schedule.

    All great, is the same progress on the 700? As I recall it used a different cam.

    Yes this fixes both. This is the sun4i_csi0 driver between the camera driver and v4l.

    Will the 700 be able to print wirelessly?

    If the printer has Arm Linux drivers it should work. Many companies put out the source for the Linux driver, so even if its not available precompiled for Arm, it can be done. If you want to go to the forum and post the model you are looking at I can check into it.
