Hmm i didnt know that the new FSO library is getting build, but it's now fixed 
anyway.

Alternatively you can also build from translations branch, but it should not 
be needed now.

I am not sure what you mean by usbdevfs. If you mean usb mass storage, then 
it's already working (there is icon for usb-mass-storage-on.sh or something 
like that in devtools menu).

qtmoko - qgcide and dictionary location

2011-05-23 Thread Robin Paulson
hi,
i recently installed the qgcide application and on first run it asked
to download the data files.

but it tries to download them to /media/card/, which is only 7.5mb (it
has the kernel on it)

my questions are:
1. why is it downloaded to this location, not /usr/share/ or /var/ or
even /home/?
2. is there any way to change the location it downloads to, without recompiling?

Then you need to rebuild linux kernel with CONFIG_USB_DEVICESFS option 
enabled.

Please note that this option is now deprecated.

For building qtmoko kernel you can use

https://github.com/radekp/linux-2.6/tree/qtmoko-v35-base

build instructions can be found here:

https://github.com/radekp/qtmoko/blob/master/doc/txt/debian_rootfs_howto.txt

(search for CROSS_COMPILE)

and you will need toolchain - how to get it is described here:

https://github.com/radekp/qtmoko/blob/master/README

Because if you are running from NAND it will take a lot of precious space. The 
location for /media/card is usually expected to be big partition on SD card.

 2. is there any way to change the location it downloads to, without
 recompiling?

No, but you are on linux so it's very easy either to change /etc/fstab and 
mount some decent big partition of your SD card to /media/card. Or you can 
make bind mount anywhere where you want your dictionary. E.g. if you want it 
in /home/root do something like this (not tested):

mount -o bind /home/root/ /media/card

Re: Freerunner as a mobile gateway - shipping container

 Main application here is in a sea shipping container.
 
 The key issues are RF communication (when in a GSM range of course) 
 and power management due to the long haul journey including journey 
 overland. Power supply has to be in the form of an additional battery.
 
 Technical issue is to have minimal size OS and to be low in power
 consumption.  And robust.

If you sleep and only wake up at intervals, you should anticipate some
difficulty acquiring a GPS signal every time you wake up. The GPS in
the Freerunner is really designed to make use of A-GPS and if you can't
do it because you are at sea and far from any network signal, it can
take a long time to get a position. We have sometimes seen it take over
40 minutes to get a good fix (unit mounted on an aircraft glareshield).

qtmoko - media player errors

2011-05-23 Thread Robin Paulson
hi,
i installed the codecs application this week, to allow my phone to
play back mp3 files.

i have copied some of my music to the phone and attempted to play it.
around 5% of the tracks will play, the rest will not - i've tested
probably 80. the track is ether skipped entirely or a message pops up
'the connection was broken'

any ideas what is happening? i'm using the default qtmoko media
player, and mp3s mostly encoded with LAME (not that this should
matter, should it?).

There was always something wrong with the default media player, but i have 
never had time to look at it. You can try to enable media category in log 
and then check the sources, but i can't help more with this problem atm.

Alternatively you can use qmplayer which uses mplayer as backend and works 
just fine.
