 I'm hoping to boot into a non privileged user to use the phone.
 Does anyone know how to start X as a non root user without using a  
 display manager. My attempts to simply add --chuid name|uid option  
 to start-stop-daemon result in the error message - X: user not  
 authorized to run the X server, aborting. If I login using a usb  
 keyboard an issue startxfce from the shell there isn't any problem.

to start X without owning the console, see /etc/X11/Xwrapper.config

 Thoughts?

Personnally, on debian, I use that in /etc/inittab :

2:23:respawn:/sbin/getty -L -n -l /usr/local/sbin/autologin 38400 tty2

and autologin :
#!/bin/sh
exec su -l user -c startx -- vt4

Thanks to getty in inittab, the console is owned by the launcher, and
/etc/X11/Xwrapper.config do not nead to be touched.

to customise your xsession, just customise .xsession.

 Besides these new versions you might be interested to hear that remoko
 and pypennotes have been packaged for Debian, and fso-gpsd makes sure
 all gpsd-using applications (such as tangogps) work also. We still don’t
 have Illume, as we are still waiting for new Enlightenment libs being
 released and packaged for Debian.

I have updated this morning, and I have some problems:
 - SMS do not work (the icon is grey), zhone says 
2008-09-12 15:43:44,943 INFO checking for unsent messages
2008-09-12 15:43:45,404 INFO did not receive any unsent messages: 
org.freesmartphone.GSM.SIM.NotFound:
   It worked OK on fso-m2 (sometimes, I received a number instead of
   the text of the SMS).
 - Sometimes, zhone do not want to suspend after 2 sec power buttun
   because it do not received the event.  On fso-m2, I restart
   frameworkd and zhone, and It works after.  Now, when I do that, I
   lost the contact list.
 - I cannot downgrade to fso-m2 because it is not in the archive
   now.  I need SMS to use the FR as a phone.

else, it works well, and fso-gpsd work fine.

Re: new version of the openmoko-panel-plugin 0.3

 the next version is already on it's way to sebastian to package
 a little gui-update here and there, some notifications (if python- 
 pynotify and notification-mananger(-xfce) installed) and a thumb- 
 friendly way to change lcd-brightness
 what i will add next would be a configfile where you can toggle which  
 hw-icons you like to get displayed and which not
 
 other suggestions what you (the users) want could be placed on this  
 list .. :)

I have sent by accident a mail to Sebastian Ohl instead of here about
a review of this plugin.  I'll try to say all I have sayed.

This plugin is great, I use it with xfce4-panel and matchbox (not
XFCE) in user mode.

bugs:
 - the battery part seems to depend of a battery.py, which is not in
   the debian package, so I don't now where it came from.
 - The debian package do not have enough dependencies, at least
   python-gtk is needed.
 - the usb applet suppose that pushing the button always succeed, which
   is not the case. For example, in user mode, the plugin is not allowed
   to charge module or change the usb mode.
 - the panel plugin became unusable after a fso-frameworkd restart.

usability problems:
 - some part of the plugin is not usable in user mode, for example the
   new usb applet.
 - the plugin is composed of too much icons.
 - toggling mode of wifi, gsm and gps is too easy and can be done by
   accident.

Proposed features:
 - cobine the status icons into an unique icon (wifi, gps, bt, gsm
   on/off, maybe usb).  When pushing this icon, a window appear that
   propose to change the different options (module on/off, usb mode, usb
   gadget).
 - use a real bar for batterie status instead of lots of icons.
 - use a bar for gsm instead of a 4 circle bar.
 - print GSM network in the GSM icon instead of the red bars (maybe
   not a good idea since the name can be long).
 - provide a matchbox-keyboard-toggle compatible with the applet, or
   give an option to use the AUX button to toggle the keyboard directly
   into the panel plugin.

 Apparently some people need to do iwconfig eth0 power off to even get an 
 association.

This command toggle off power management.  From my experience, this is
not a FR bug, but an AP bug : some AP do not work good with power
managed client.

On my lab, at the university and in my LUG, the wifi work without
swiching off the power management.  But at home, I need to toggling
off power management. With power management, it is difficult to have
an IP by DHCP, and pinging the router make between 70-80% of lost
packets. My Nintendo DS do not work with this router too.

I experiment wifi problem when loosing link, that can only be fixed by
a reboot.  It is not great when roaming...

(tested on Debian with FSOm2 and m3 kernels)

 it would be nice, to have more control over gps. to see the status,
 satellites, do a warm / cold restart, time to first fix, like in the
 gps-ui for openmoko distribution. thats missing in debian and fso :(

Using fso-gpsd seems to do warm start. It work quit OK, but there is 2
big problems that make me change to a classical gpsd allown:
 - fso-gpsd toggle GPS on/off automaticly, which seems to be a good
idea, but is not when tangogps segfault: You have to wait for another
fix before using it.
 - using fso-gpsd, I have sometimes no gps information during some
seconds or minutes, which is problematic when you are mapping for
openstreetmap.
