Re: [debian] Sephora 0.1 - Suggestions needed

2008-09-25 Thread Risto H. Kurppa
The tool looks great and I'm 99% sure I'll start using it if/when I
eventually move to debian.

One more that came to my mind: you mentioned mute/volume - how about
ability to easily change the behavior in case of a call or text
message: Full ringing, just a discreet 'beep', vibration on/off and so
on.. And an extension to this would naturally be possibility to change
the ringing tone.

But one problem using the phone as a phone is that I can't have it
easily on but quiet, when needed so this would help fixing this.

Thanks!

kexec only removes the need for up to were the bootloader executes the

execute the kernel and go throught the linux boot process.

The point to were the neo bootloader executes the kernel is already
pretty quick it is the rest of the linux boot that takes the time.

 hmm actually it always filled it in for me from DHCP when connectin to

 Both correct, actually, as it DOES fill it in from DHCP (if used)
 connecting wifi with 'ifup eth0', but IIRC resolvconf isn't used to do
   
 it,
 
 it just overwrites resolv.conf.  The idea behind resolvconf (the bin) is
 that IT manages changes to the resolv.conf file, doing things like
   
 removing
 
 eth0-related DNS nameservers when eth0 goes down, going back to
 usb0-related nameservers automatically.  ifup should feed DNS info to
 resolvconf and let it manage.

 Right now, I think DNS and default route changes when interfaces change
 up/down need some attention from the 'just-works' dept.
   
 I still don't quite understand this confusion.

 udhcpc modifies /var/run/resolv.conf, as do I when needed. Any
 
 continually
   
 changing value/file should reside in volatile, in my opinion.

 /etc/resolv.conf has, for as long as I've been playing, symlinked to
 /var/run/resolv.conf.

 Except for the backend stuff not agreeing on this location, I have no
 issues,
 so long as udhcpc is used and an 'ip r d default' is issued prior to
 invocation.

 If the plan is that these values will be written to the filesystem, I'd
 say
 I'll be modifying mine to the contrary.

 Sarton
 

 The program resolvconf is intended to work as follows: When an interface
 comes up, resolvconf should be called to -a add new nameserver(s)
 associated with the network connection on that interface.  When an
 interface goes down resolvconf should get a -d delete nameserver(s) for
 the specified interface.  

 The program resolvconf itself is supposed to make any/all changes to
 resolv.conf (wherever the actual file resides - the debian standard
 location is /etc/resolvconf/run/resolv.conf, actually) NOT the script or
 subsystem or network manager or whatever handles the up/down.  Based on its
 configuration (notably /etc/resolvconf/interface-order - debian location)
 it uses whatever nameserver settings are needed, but remembers the others.

 So for example, usb0 coming up stuffs 192.168.0.201 in as nameserver, but
 does it by executing resolvconf.  Then eth0 comes up and tells resolvconf
 its nameserver(s) - resolvconf decides which to use, likely eth0 will be
 set a higher priority than usb0.  Later eth0 goes down.  Now resolvconf
 automatically restores the nameserver settings from usb0.  (presuming it is
 still up)  If usb0 went down already, but ppp0 over gprs came up in the
 meantime, nameservers for ppp0 go live.
   

OK, so this resolvconf thing is inherited from debian and has been 
implented obviously without much thought to general functionality. I say 
this in the context of normal (non-debian) services functioning as 
expected when not massaged by resolvconf.

I understand the intention, don't get me wrong, and it is indeed a nice 
idea. But when all people want to do is gain connectivity with their 
chosen method, this resolvconf facility seems to be more of a hinderence 
and is unlike a lot of linux distros. Shouldn't this, at least 
currently, be optional?

If something as fundamental as _core_ network services are going to be 
overlayed with something like this, it should really be working first, 
rather thaan people editing files left and right without understanding why.

This is just what I think, take it as you will. In the end I am the 
master of my device ;)

I've actually just done a bit of research before posting and it 
_appears_ this was implemented with good intention, just without the 
required software support. It seems to be very much of debian origins 
and a little bit of overkill for managing the facilities on the 
freerunner, but that's just my opinion. If I was currently using usb0, 
eth0 and a tun/tap interface simultaneously, that all flapped or had 
dynamic dns requirments (sounds more like a router) it would make sense 
to me. I imagine the end goal is to consolidate gprs and wifi dns but 
currently no resolvconf is going to teach people how to get that going.
 
When om2008 is mature and these kind of connections can be made easily, 
without much knowledge, this utility would be a godsend ... as it stands 
you currently need basic linux knowledge to understand why things don't 
work and then you need to know how to manipulate resolvconf.

Maybe it's my BSD upbringing, thanks for the clarification however. :)

 Does opkg recognize if the system was booted from flash or from the sd

Not to my knowledge, I make sure to rm /etc/default/flashkernel before 
an opkg upgrade. It's autocreated after the upgrade so there's probably

I've not tried cat before but have used mtd-utils. Sorry, that's what I 
meant before. It's available at least in the testing repo but I've not 
tested on the freerunner. There seems to minor limitations on what some 
of the system tools are capable of, which is pretty typical of embedded 
systems. Maybe the packaged tools will help.

Good luck :)

Re: [2008.09] resolv.conf

2008-09-25 Thread vasco . nevoa

If resolvconf isn't doing what it should, then it is our  
responsibility as users to file enough bugs with enough pertinent info  
until it is corrected.
If you have a clear use case that fails, open a ticket.
I don't care which kind of connection management system is inside  
openmoko, as long as it works and is flexible to accommodate any  
networking scenario we may come up with (which pretty much narrows it  
down to resolvconf IMHO).
Let's make it work, ok? File the necessary bugs.

Citando [EMAIL PROTECTED]:
 OK, so this resolvconf thing is inherited from debian and has been
 implented obviously without much thought to general functionality. I say
 this in the context of normal (non-debian) services functioning as
 expected when not massaged by resolvconf.

 I understand the intention, don't get me wrong, and it is indeed a nice
 idea. But when all people want to do is gain connectivity with their
 chosen method, this resolvconf facility seems to be more of a hinderence
 and is unlike a lot of linux distros. Shouldn't this, at least
 currently, be optional?

 If something as fundamental as _core_ network services are going to be
 overlayed with something like this, it should really be working first,
 rather thaan people editing files left and right without understanding why.

 This is just what I think, take it as you will. In the end I am the
 master of my device ;)

 I've actually just done a bit of research before posting and it
 _appears_ this was implemented with good intention, just without the
 required software support. It seems to be very much of debian origins
 and a little bit of overkill for managing the facilities on the
 freerunner, but that's just my opinion. If I was currently using usb0,
 eth0 and a tun/tap interface simultaneously, that all flapped or had
 dynamic dns requirments (sounds more like a router) it would make sense
 to me. I imagine the end goal is to consolidate gprs and wifi dns but
 currently no resolvconf is going to teach people how to get that going.

 When om2008 is mature and these kind of connections can be made easily,
 without much knowledge, this utility would be a godsend ... as it stands
 you currently need basic linux knowledge to understand why things don't
 work and then you need to know how to manipulate resolvconf.

 Maybe it's my BSD upbringing, thanks for the clarification however. :)

IMHO the simplest effective solution should always head the list.  In
this instance I think that is to run dnscache or a similar service on the
Freerunner itself, pointing somewhere like opendns.com's servers. (ok,
maybe not simplest, though the local cache has various benefits. Pointing
resolv.conf at opendns.com or wherever is simplest, assuming no network
connection actually requires use of it's own DNS - corporate intranet wifi
might, to reach 'private' records for example)  If needed, newly-connected
network connections that come equipped with new DNS servers (IE, wifi with
DHCP) can insert/remove their DNS servers from the list used by dnscache,
while resolv.conf permanently points at 127.0.0.1.  This is what I've had
running for a few weeks, but I hadn't yet attempted to get ifup/ifdown
manipulating /etc/dnscache/root/servers/@. (which will essentially require
a resolvconf-like manager ;)

WIFI Connector Application

2008-09-25 Thread Arigead
Hello all,
I'm looking for an application which if it exists great and if it 
don't exist I'll maybe try and implement it in C, if what I'm thinking 
is even possible. I've not done too much investigating into Wifi as I 
believe that it has its issues on the FR.

I've not tagged this email [2008.09] or anything. I'm using 2008.09 but 
I'll use this on any distro if it exists and if it has to be written I 
don't want to write it for a specific Distro.

The FreeRunner as you well know is a very mobile device. Given this 
mobility the wifi is potentially connecting to different networks all 
over the place. I'm looking for an application which can scan for wifi 
networks and compares the available SSIDs to a list of know SSIDs which 
is stored in? (database/file/whatever) The list of know SSID's should 
also contain the security details of the Network.

Now if the app is started and it finds a know Network it simply connects 
to that network using the stored security settings. If there is no know 
network available but there is an open network the App prompts the user 
to see if they want to connect to an open network. Perhaps in the coffee 
shop.

I don't know if the phone should periodically check for access points or 
whether it should only connect when prompted. Maybe along the top of the 
home screen there could be icons for a connectable wifi hotspot. If the 
user sees that they are connectible then they could start their browser 
and let it all work.

as I say I've not even started looking at FR Wifi as yet as I though 
there were problems. If the app I'm describing already exists sorry but 
please direct me. I want WIFI connection not to require the command 
line. Most people who buy phones will never use a command line ;-)

I use Ubuntu on my laptop and every time I go home to the parents place 
I have to tell Ubuntu to connect to their Wifi. I must have told it a 
million times ;-) You'd think it would know by now. Actually the App I'm 
describing could be used on my laptop as well. Two birds...

Depends how you boot. I boot directly (well via symlink) the kernel in 
/boot, so this works fine. If you have a vfat partition then you have to 
copy the kernel over from /boot and rename it. That's why I switched to 
a single ext2 partition, much easier to maintain, especially with 
testing's regular updates.

It would do if all the debian network scripts are in place. Last time I tried

supposed to run on connection to sort out IP, DNS etc. were missing.

2008.8/9 appears to be using connman which is supposed to do a similar job to

Re: [2008.9] What, no updates?...

Am Donnerstag, 25. September 2008 schrieb [EMAIL PROTECTED]:
 Hi.
 It's been a long time since the last real update of packages for the
 2008.x feeds.
 Everyday I do opkg update and opkg upgrade and all that comes down is
 the angstrom version file.
 Since there are still a lot of bugs to solve, I find this strange...
 What's happening?... why aren't there any updates?
 Is OM working on something else entirely, or taking a vacation? :)
 Cheers,
 Vasco.

I'm wondering too, I thought my feeds are wrong. But if you have the same 
experience there must be some other reason.

be blessed

I like the idea.

And just for a useless opinion from me, the Nokia770 desktop had 
something like this. They allowed free positioning of elements with 
various sizes. The effect whas a cluttered appearance and a real pain to 
position the widgets in a nice way. And many of these elements wasted 
just some pixels too much to bring them into position next to each other 
with others.

Especially on a phone i would like the container to control size and 
placement of the gadgets.
The gadget designer could still decide how many 'units' he wants and 
shape his elements like tetris blocks but the container would enforce 
placement and size.

As i said, this is at the moment a useless idea. But i wanted to share 
my experience with a floating unconstrained gadget layout. *g*

  Isn't wpa_supplicant doing exactly this (it does for me on my normal

 It would do if all the debian network scripts are in place. Last time I tried 
 (some time ago now) wpa_supplican would connect, but the scripts that are 
 supposed to run on connection to sort out IP, DNS etc. were missing.

I think the work that wpa_supplicant daemon does is only to control the
association to the AP and bringing up the interface; then in FreeBSD
a devd (device daemon) lets you describe what to do else, for example
launch a script when IF_UP; in this script you may, based on the MAC of
the AP, do whatever is needed: ifconfig static IP or DHCP or 

it is similiar to what I have described here for the cdce0 (USB) interface:

http://wiki.openmoko.org/wiki/Usb_networking#FreeBSD

a logic like that must exist in Debian too, I'm wrong?
and this is not much scripting work, or?

Hi Michael,
Since FSO uses DBus as one of its core technologies, it is toolkit agnostic
as long as the toolkit has DBus bindings. As it turns out Qt has very good
DBus support. In case you haven't already taken a look,

   Isn't wpa_supplicant doing exactly this (it does for me on my normal

  It would do if all the debian network scripts are in place. Last time I
  tried (some time ago now) wpa_supplican would connect, but the scripts
  that are supposed to run on connection to sort out IP, DNS etc. were
  missing.

 I think the work that wpa_supplicant daemon does is only to control the
 association to the AP and bringing up the interface; then in FreeBSD
 a devd (device daemon) lets you describe what to do else, for example
 launch a script when IF_UP; in this script you may, based on the MAC of
 the AP, do whatever is needed: ifconfig static IP or DHCP or 

 it is similiar to what I have described here for the cdce0 (USB) interface:

 http://wiki.openmoko.org/wiki/Usb_networking#FreeBSD

 a logic like that must exist in Debian too, I'm wrong?
 and this is not much scripting work, or?

Exactly. The logic exists in debian. wpa_supplicant associates with the access 
point then some scripts apply the configuration you set 
in /etc/network/interfaces that matches the AP it associated with. 
Unfortunately in 2007.2 the bit that applies the settings is missing. For 
someone who knows their way around the inner workings of the debian system it 
would probably be easy to fix, but I don't. Since ASU was moving to use 
connman instead of the debian method of network management I didn't see the 
benefit in digging deeper at the time.

Hi!

I haven't tried 2008.9 yet but assuming its the same as in 2008.8 you
just need to decompile the theme file (using edje_decc)
~/.e/e/themes/*.edj or the system-wide default in
/usr/share/enlightenment/data/themes/illume.edj.
Have a look at the resulting output (should be a directory containing
images and an *.edc file) and change the background file if existant,
then recompile it using edje_cc and you're done.

Seemed quite a lot of work for me just to change a background but I've
discovered that E has a lot of differences compared to other desktop
environments and I'm starting to like the principle.
I just tried it on the theme found here
http://52grad.de/.stuff/freerunner/ and it worked out fine. Haven't
tried on the default one though - I don't even know if there's a
background image specified. Remember to use an image in 640x640 as
you'll be rotating your screen :)
Hope I could clear this to you and sorry for my sloppy English ;)

Cachewolf for Openmoko

2008-09-25 Thread vale

Hi,

i just wanted to report that i have made a version of Cachewolf
(http://www.cachewolf.de/wiki/pmwiki.php/Main/HomePage) for the freerunner.
It is a program to manage your Geocaches (www.geocaching.com). Unfortunatly
all info about Cachewolf in German ... 

You can download it here:
http://files.openomy.com/public/bubbas/cachewolf_1.0.1532_freerunner_ewe_gtk2.tar.gz

Install with:
tar -xvzf cachewolf_1.0.1532_freerunner_ewe_gtk2.tar.gz -C /

After first start you have to change fontsize in
/home/root/cachwolf/prefs.xml with an editor:


For gps use:
port portname = ../dev/ttySAC1 baud = 9600/

adapt:
basedir dir = /media/card/caches//

to your needs where you want to store your cache-profiles. You can copy your
cache profiles from your pc version of cachewolf too, so that u don't have
to spider with the freerunner ...


Debian Users can use the original Cachwolf Java Version from
www.cachewolf.de. Install the cacao-java vm first by doing: apt-get install
cacao-oj6-jre.

 I like the idea.
 
 And just for a useless opinion from me, the Nokia770 desktop had 
 something like this. They allowed free positioning of elements with 
 various sizes. The effect whas a cluttered appearance and a real pain to 
 position the widgets in a nile and then puts a little show/ce way. And many of
 these elements wasted just some pixels too much to bring them into position
 next to each other with others.
 
 Especially on a phone i would like the container to control size and 
 placement of the gadgets.
 The gadget designer could still decide how many 'units' he wants and 
 shape his elements like tetris blocks but the container would enforce 
 placement and size.
 
 As i said, this is at the moment a useless idea. But i wanted to share 
 my experience with a floating unconstrained gadget layout. *g*

oh maemo just implemented this awfully! sure - core idea is there, but they had
no drag resistance (ie resist being dragged over another element for a it to
allow aligning of things easily) and no form of auto arrange. ie i cant go
create a vbox or hbox then drag N elements into it and then let it
auto-arrange (or some hider that taks N elements and groups them into a v/hbox
or table and then shows/hides with a little control tab/button etc.)

it was very raw.

My Suggestions for FDOM

2008-09-25 Thread Tim Dobson
Hi there,
I've just moved to FDOM and I love it.

I have a few ideas to make it better - these aren't criticisms - it's 
great at the moment - these are just ideas to make it better - I don't 
expect anyone to agree about all of them, but these are suggestions...

# Midori(with the settings tweaked) is better for the screensize than 
minimo - I find it more usable

# accel-rotate program, or a way to start/stop it - this is a simple 
script to use the accelerometers to rotate with xrandr. It seems quite 
stable. An ipkg is available - http://wiki.openmoko.org/wiki/Rotate

When I was running 22007.2, two cool programs I had from Angstrom were:

# Quasar - a x11 mplayer front end.
This is not perfect for the freerunner - it ideally needs some UI work 
doing (more than just setting tweaking), especially on it's fonts, 
however, i have launched mpg QVGA videos with it and watched them as 
well as listening to music with it.

# Claws Mail
A lightweight mail client - with a bit of UI tweaking from the view menu 
makes a completely usable mail client. Since we have qmail, I guess this 
is not necessary, but it's a thought.

# FBreader?
I would love to see an ebook reader but I think there are big dependency 
issues here :(

# Games
Personally, I would prefer to get rid of sudoku and to possibly to get 
kobodeluxe on there.
Though not ready yet, keeping an eye on 
http://projects.openmoko.org/projects/accelgame might be good.

# lint-wifi
Personally, I prefer lint-wifi to mofi. I really like being able to see 
the network info it displays (ie IP, DNS DDHCP) as it helps 
troubleshooting stuff when things dont work :P
http://wiki.openmoko.org/wiki/Lint-wifi

# wpa_supplicant.conf
Possibly modify the default the wpa_supplicant.conf to automatically 
connect to unencrypted wifi hotspots? :-/

I can't help too much - my stupid OM setup script - (givemeteh)apppznow 
is pretty much obsolete as a result of FDOM :) so I will help in the 
ways I can. I have joined the development list and considering all the 
spare high speed bandwidth I have, I've set up a mirror - 
http://files.tdobson.net/openmoko/freerunner/fadom/

At some point soon I'll get rid of the 'a' in fadom :P

Cheers for the good work, keep it up! :D

best one to connect to - target was an environment (appartment block)
that had a number of unsecured AP's that continually changed.  The AP
just auto-connected to the one it thought best.

Moral issues aside, that looks like the way to do it.  A quick look at

  this in the context of normal (non-debian) services functioning as

  I understand the intention, don't get me wrong, and it is indeed a nice
  idea. But when all people want to do is gain connectivity with their
  chosen method, this resolvconf facility seems to be more of a hinderence
  and is unlike a lot of linux distros. Shouldn't this, at least
  currently, be optional?
 
  If something as fundamental as _core_ network services are going to be
  overlayed with something like this, it should really be working first,
  rather thaan people editing files left and right without understanding

  This is just what I think, take it as you will. In the end I am the

  I've actually just done a bit of research before posting and it
  _appears_ this was implemented with good intention, just without the

  and a little bit of overkill for managing the facilities on the
  freerunner, but that's just my opinion. If I was currently using usb0,
  eth0 and a tun/tap interface simultaneously, that all flapped or had
  dynamic dns requirments (sounds more like a router) it would make sense
  to me. I imagine the end goal is to consolidate gprs and wifi dns but
  currently no resolvconf is going to teach people how to get that going.
 
  When om2008 is mature and these kind of connections can be made easily,
  without much knowledge, this utility would be a godsend ... as it stands
  you currently need basic linux knowledge to understand why things don't
  work and then you need to know how to manipulate resolvconf.
 
  Maybe it's my BSD upbringing, thanks for the clarification however. :)

 IMHO the simplest effective solution should always head the list.  In
 this instance I think that is to run dnscache or a similar service on the
 Freerunner itself, pointing somewhere like opendns.com's servers. (ok,
 maybe not simplest, though the local cache has various benefits. Pointing
 resolv.conf at opendns.com or wherever is simplest, assuming no network
 connection actually requires use of it's own DNS - corporate intranet wifi
 might, to reach 'private' records for example)  If needed, newly-connected
 network connections that come equipped with new DNS servers (IE, wifi with
 DHCP) can insert/remove their DNS servers from the list used by dnscache,
 while resolv.conf permanently points at 127.0.0.1.  This is what I've had
 running for a few weeks, but I hadn't yet attempted to get ifup/ifdown
 manipulating /etc/dnscache/root/servers/@. (which will essentially require
 a resolvconf-like manager ;)

That all makes sense. Typically I've seen dnsmasq fulfill this function.

My point was merely that the current solution is added complexity to a rather 
neat base filesystem. If this was a package I wouldn't have the same gripe.

Using dnsmasq, pointing at localhost, including opendns and using helper 
scripts to insert and remove dns servers sounds less complex and less 
confusing, with the added benefit of caching and less modification to the base 
system. It also means not having to incorporate something that doesn't appear 
to have had the modifications needed _to_ incorporate it.

I don't like the requirement that all the software modifying network settings 
needs to be resolvconf aware. If we had a generic central solution people 
could use whatever they want and not incur breakage ...

Worst case, something like a resolv.conf pipe to a daemon that updates 
resolv.conf.auto for dnsmasq would be better. Something central!

Looking at the way resolvconf works, it almost seems like we should be 
patching libc :S ...so we have a generic interface.

Anyway ... I can feel fork coming on :P

 Without being able to suspend and resume, using the gta02 as a phone is not

 I am more than happy to assist in any way I can, but I am not a kernel

I use testing and have had no problems for the last 3 weeks, maybe more. 
Actually there was one update which I think broke it, but testing updates 
daily so was fixed the next day.

I don't recommend testing ... well ... because it's testing. But I can

freerunner.

Anyway i am happy with the hardware and i have been through the wiki 
and am still trying to make my way through the amount of information 
available in there.

The first thing i did after the free runner landed was i reflashed the 
firmware to the 2008.8. I have it boothing but i have not go tit to do 
anything useful. Wifi does not connect and the GPS does not work. 
There exists no filemanager/ media player by default and so essentially i 
still have nothing usable.

I would appreciate anyone guiding me or pointing me to a location 
where i can get the needed information. What i need to being is

1) Get the wifi to connect. It currently invariably always says something 
like Error: Unable to connect to the network
2) Get my GPS working. TangoGPS says no GPS found and locations 
says unable to get a fix.
3) How do i exchange data between my PC and the FR so that i could

 Sarton

hmmm.  I've been thinking on the situation, and have a proposal, as yet
incomplete but IMHO promising - and it's nowhere near as drastic as
forking.  I see basically two approaches:  One is an overarching network
manager directly handling all the details, the other (my preferred) is to
let DNS take care of itself independently, and address the
multiple-default-route issue - probably with route metrics, though more
advanced routing setup (requiring full ip binary instead of busybox) with
multiple routing tables and rules is probably the better solution there.

It starts with dnscache.  Postinst in dnscache ipk removes the symlink
/etc/resolv.conf and replaces it with a real file, pointing always at
nameserver 127.0.0.1.  (what I had going already)

On my Ubuntu desktop, there's a possibly-useful file:
/etc/resolvconf/update.d/dnscache - its purpose is to alter
/etc/dsncachce/root/servers/@ (the list of servers dnscache is to query for
anything uncached) automatically whenever resolvconf is triggered.  This
would be the way to hook in if resolvconf were working on the Freerunner as
intended, which currently appears not to be the case.

Alternately (or additionally), /etc/network/if-up.d/ and
/etc/network/if-post-down.d/ allow us to perform the same changes
automatically whenever an interface is brought up or taken down using ifup
and ifdown.

I've altered my /etc/init.d/dnscache script to include a 'refresh' feature,
that first wipes /etc/dnscache/root/servers/@, then stuffs in any
non-localhost nameservers presently listed in /etc/resolv.conf, then adds
any nameservers found in /etc/resolvconf/run/resolv.conf, finishing up with
any IPs listed in /etc/default/dnscache (default contents opendns.com IPs),
wipes /etc/resolv.conf back to localhost only, then finally kicks dnscache
so it uses the new servers/@ contents.

Once my freerunner is back in front of me I'll test the init script changes
- if it works as I hope, I can add a script to the ipk in each of
/etc/network/if-up.d/ and /etc/network/if-post-down.d/ that simply call
/etc/init.d/dnscache refresh, and/or in /etc/resolvconf/update.d/.  That
makes the whole thing just work as a single ipk installing dnscache and
all the support to override resolvconf AND 'manual' nameserver updates
implemented by ifup/ifdown. If resolvconf is discarded it will work fine,
just need added logic in the postrm script in the dnscache ipk to recognize
resolvconf's absence and restore a basic /etc/resolv.conf instead of trying
to restore the symlink.

BTW: dnscache vs dnsmasq. I'm far more familiar with dnscache, so I'd lean
toward it for that reason, but additionally dnsmasq incorporates a dhcp
server - seems a waste for a more-or-less default setup.  If dhcp server on
the Freerunner is actually desired, it

Welcome!  Roll up your sleeves and have some fun. :)
 

 1) Get the wifi to connect. It currently invariably always says something
 like Error: Unable to connect to the network

http://wiki.openmoko.org/wiki/Wifi cover this.  It states that the GUI
should work fairly well in updated 2008.  I never had much success with
it, but honestly didn't try much in the past few weeks.  I've had best
success with ifup eth0 in terminal, once I'd set up a good
wpa_supplicant.conf covering my WPA home AP, WPA work AP, unsecured work
AP, and falling back to any unsecured AP that would talk to it.

 2) Get my GPS working. TangoGPS says no GPS found and locations
 says unable to get a fix.

http://wiki.openmoko.org/wiki/TangoGPS#Running_tangoGPS_on_Om_2008.8 should
do the job.  You need gpsd installed and config altered
(GPS_DEV=/dev/ttySAC0), and you need to start gpsd, which you can do in
Settings.

 3) How do i exchange data between my PC and the FR so that i could
 push my MP3's and documents etc.

Simplest is probably sftp or scp. 
http://wiki.openmoko.org/wiki/File_transfer - although it finishes up by
stating that use as a USB storage device for the desktop is unsupported,
while that is in fact possible and fairly easy to achieve now.  (though it
only presents the microSD as a usb drive to the PC, or more precisely any
single partition - which should not be mounted on the Freerunner's
filesystem while shared)

 4) A good music player, web browser and PDF reader.

I can't help on that one.  I toyed with the available media players and web
browsers several weeks ago and that was all.

 
 Thanks to everyone who made this product what it is. Over the next

An idea would be a config dialog to repurpose the aux button.  I dont
use the lock function (the button sucks as a regular use button anyway)
and could perhaps be used to kill the top application in the viewing
stack as 2007.2 power button did.  Its not only kobo which has problems
like this as a couple of times I have had a unresponsive display
probably caused by dialogs not on top.

e already has one - it has about 50 config dialogs. all of them are removed
from user access/control in 2008.08 because om wanted config to be done by
their own exposure tool because it was insisted all things be done in python
and the config dialogs didnt match the ui design ideas.

so other than making such dialogs fit better in 480x640 - they are all there
and work. :)

as above :) e already possesses all this power and exports it nicely in gui's.
