Hello everybody
 
I would like to turn my cubie in to low power media center. But I can't find an image that would have mali drivers installed and would support bluetooth (I have bluetooth keyboard). I also tried to build my on image but whit no luck (I am newbie to ARM). This problem has been puzzling me for over a month.  Can somebody please help me and point me to that kind of image or make one. The help would be much appreciated. It does not matter which linux distro.

Thank you for your help
B
