Another strangly configured variable in Firefox…
To correctly display vertical traditionnal mongol writing in Firefox, go to the about:config URL, then change the value of the variable to 87 (that’s strangly -1 by default, this is only used for mongol fonts):
Update:, firefox 29 has 255 instead of -1 (looks like a change in the (computer data type from int to uint)
Thanks to Ganbold from #linux-sunxi for this tips.
Work in progress: Following this tutorial there is still problem with automatic network dhcp and clock at boot time, until installing a full distro desktop. I still need to find the needed packages to resolve this without installing the full distro
In my case, I start from a previously installed system with u-boot and kernel, this make things easier.
I managed, this week-end, finally relativly easily to add full hardware acceleration support on Cubieboard2. I used the current stage (beta) of linux-sunxi kernel, and followed step by step kernel compilation tutorial on linux-sunxi.org wiki. I slightly improved documentation, in the case of AllWinner A20.
Focus that created the system image I used to these modification also made an article about this, inspirated by some of my recommandations, and now, The modified image is available from the download area of cubieboard.org. You can still continue to read this article to understand how to for another distribution. I myself needed to apply some of this rules for my version of (l/x)ubuntu 13.10
Align disk partitions on their cylinders, is, knowing that most frequent datas feet on a cylinder:
* Avoid to read 2 cylinders instead of one => gain time at read, reduce useless cache usage, gain bandewidth.
* Avoid to write 2 cylinders when only one is good enough => gain time, reduce useless cache usage, gain bandwith, reduce wearout
* For the previous reason, allow to grow greatly timelife of an SSD disk (number of writing cycles is limited on an SLC, more on an MLC, even more on a TLC, but the price of this last one is the lower by GB).
cfdisk on the disk you want to optimize (replace /dev/sda, by the disk to optimize: /dev/sdb, /dev/sdc…):
If you see an asterisk (or star) at the most right of a partition ligne, this one is not aligned on cylinder. In my case, I have to remake all the partitions but sda3:

Create new partition from free space
Using the old usagemode of
fdisk. I found this tip on an Ubuntu documentation.
Replace /dev/sdX by the disk on which you want to create aligned partition:
Et voilà, you will see a beautifull result on
To create several aligned partitions: Choose the good option instead of the 4 time
[return key] and redo the n (new), for each partition.
