Well... since a case only makes sense with a phone in it, I guess the
question comes down to How much would you pay in addition to the pure
board in order to get a full phone?, right?

Depending on the total price of the GTA04, I would be quite interested
in one unit (replacing my current FreeRunner). 20 Euros is a no-brainer
from my perspective - considering that otherwise I would have to fiddle
with the installation myself, or send in my current FreeRunner. I'm not
quite comfortable with the first option, and the second might cost more
than 20 Euros and will leave me without a phone for some time.

50 Euros still sound ok to me. Anything above 100 Euros seems to be a
bit steep for me.

Hi,

One question: Do you only consider upgrades of existing Freerunners or
would a complete phone also be an option? My (probably naive) impression
is that you're only missing the case plastics to provide a complete GTA4
phone.

Re: [SHR] new package: theremin (alfa version warning)

Hi Aapo,

Cool project. But seeing this I wonder - wouldn't it even be a better 
idea to use the accelerometers instead of the touchscreen? Or even use 
both: accelerometers for the pitch and touchscreen for the amplitude - 
like the original theremin :)

Just my 2ct,

Re: [Qi - SHR-U/All?] Pink line of death

2009-10-05 Thread Andreas Fischer
Hi,

I've also seen this bug and I've also tracked it down to OMNewRotate. My
solution so far was to always disable rotation before going into
suspend. Not doing so seems to give a chance of (almost?) 100% failure.
Note, that I keep the freerunner strapped in a horizontal position to my
belt - so during suspend it will almost certainly be rotated, unless
rotate has been switched off.

Interestingly there seems to be a step before the pink line is shown:
Sometimes when I boot and do not enter the PIN immediately (but still
before suspend), the screen is partly garbled (lower 33% of the screen
in portrait mode). After suspend, the pink line shows up.

Listening to the feeling in my gut, I'd say glamo b0rks screen setup
when in a rotated position.

Hope this helps to narrow it down. Meanwhile - is there a way to disable
OMNewRotate on boot and suspend (i.e. to only enable it manually)?

Regards,
Andreas

 Hello,
 
 Has anyone seen the 'pink line of death' at any time?
 
 My FR sometimes does not suspend, but instead shows a black screen
 with a pink/purple line at about 33% from the bottom of the screen.
 The backlight is fully on. Also, the screen is whining.
 
 I haven't been able to reproduce it with a known procedure, but it may
 have to do with rotating the phone during suspend.
 
 I also haven't had it in this state on such times that it was possible
 to SSH into it to see if it was still alive or not.
 
 Shall I file a bug report with this meager information?

Though this is probably not what you want to hear, I'd strongly suggest

   --Blackberry Update Found to Contain Spyware

 A United Arab Emirates service provider pushed out a BlackBerry update
 that contains spyware capable of intercepting users email and text
 messages and sending them back to the server. The
 performance-enhancement patch was sent as a WAP Push message to 100,000
 users. Its spyware capabilities were discovered only after one user took
 a closer look at the update because it appeared to be draining the
 devices battery. The battery was being drained because the application
 was trying to register with a central server that became overwhelmed
 with the traffic, so the devices repeatedly tried to make contact.

Why not go the inverse road? Copy the file from your pc with:

Well... no - with a sane routing configuration that shouldn't be much of

accessing my freerunner without changing IPs.

 If your network is configured with this IP range and you pop a
 freerunner in, it of course cause a world of pain. Please choose a
 more sensible default.
 
 Nearly every network I know uses 192.168.1.*, so the default is perfectly 
 fine... Although something like 192.168.64.* could be statistically more 
 failsafe.

Actually in that case I would avoid all powers of two. A higher prime
number, like 97, might be a good choice...

But eventually someone is always going to get into trouble, so maybe the
better route would be to clearly explain how to avoid routing
misconfiguration and how to change the default IP (which is done in

I suppose the dns-sd command you gave me should return info on all FTP

avahi-browse (which is included in the avahi-utils package). You'll
easily find a manpage for it on the net. avahi-discover does the same
thing, but with a GUI. I'm not sure about the functionality of the

than doing everything on the commandline).

Rui Castro wrote:
 Hi,
 
 Like many people in this community I have my Neo resting comfortably
 in my desk because there isn't a stable OS with the basic phone
 funcionalities available at the moment (I already tried all the
 distributions available). Some distributions provide some of the basic
 stuff, but they're not reliable in many ways.
 
 Today I read a message from Wolfgang Spraul in the thread about the
 end of the Optimization Team that got me worried The way things are
 going right now, we will probably have this release mid-next year..
 Well, I think this is very bad. Electronic equipment, like
 phones/computers, become outdated in a very short period of time
 (GTA03 is already being created). By the mid-next year Neo will be
 pretty much an old phone and nobody really used it, yet.

I totally disagree. First, I do not think that phones age that quick. I
used an age-old Nokia phone (I think it was a 3510 - ca. 2002) until I
got my Freerunner this summer. Unless something unforeseen happens, next
summer the two Neos will _still_ be the only fully opensource
smartphones out there. Outdated or not - there is no competition.

Second, my understanding was that GTA03 is not yet created but only
planned at this stage. Hearing that not even the OM engineers have it
yet, I'd not expect gta03 before the next stable release.

Third, the statement that nobody really used it, yet is wrong unless I
am nobody. I am using it on a daily basis and from what I am reading on
this list, others are too.

Finally, we are not talking here about a release of a first working
software stack but about a switch to a different software stack from an
already working (though with several shortcomings) software stack.

 I think Android is the best candidate to turn the Neo into a daily
 usable phone right away. It has all the basic (and not so basic)
 applications, it has a good usability, good looks and the number of
 users/applications will grow very rapidly in the next months, I
 think.
 The current state of the Android port for Neo is already very
 encoraging and with a little effort from the community (and Openmoko
 people) Android could be fully functional in the Freerunner in a
 couple of weeks.

And why should Openmoko redirect its effort to Android? Low-level
improvements (like working on a new kernel) benefits Android anyway and
- for me at least - OM2008.9 also has all the basic (and not so basic)
applications. Plus, it offers more than just a Java environment.


I'm sorry if this sounds a bit harsh, but I am a bit confused by people
constantly complaining: Either you have a completely different phone or
you came here with the wrong expectations. To me at least it was clear
when I got the phone that it wouldn't be userfriendly at least until
Q1/2009 (which seems to be a good guess now, seeing the release plan of
FSO).

Andreas

 Hi All,

 During today's upgrade I encountered the following error:

  * ERROR: The following packages conflict with openmoko-phoneprofile-data:
  *  qtopia-phone-x11-profile-data *

 How should I proceed? Uninstall one of these?
 
 remove qtopia-phone-x11-profile-data and install
 openmoko-phoneprofile-data

That seemed to work. Thank you.

 openmoko-phoneprofile-data is already in Om2008.9 so I wonder why you
 have qtopia-phone-x11-profile-data installed.

I have no idea, actually. Maybe some remnant of an update? I certainly
didn't install it on purpose...

 Dear Community,

 As Sushama (our new testing team member) indicated in
 http://lists.openmoko.org/pipermail/devel/2008-November/003493.html ,
 we won't have a release in Nov.  Currently the testing team is going
 to do a full test on the latest testing image.  It has all the goodies
 we did and a lot of improvements over Om2008.9, so please try it and
 report any error you find.


 Upgrade howto:

 From Om2008.9 it's recommanded to upgrade with the following steps:

 sed -i -e 's%Om2008.8%testing%' /etc/opkg/*.conf
 /etc/init.d/xserver-nodm stop
 screen -DR
 opkg update
 opkg -force-overwrite upgrade
 # (please ans Y to all questions)
 # (the sshd (dropbear) will restart, so you need to reconnect and do
 # 'screen -DR' again)
 opkg upgrade
 shutdown -r now

 To get the fastest boot time you also need to remove the following
 packages:

 opkg remove task-base-nfs task-base-smbfs task-base-bluetooth \
 task-base-usbgadget avahi-daemon avahi-autoipd blueprobe \
 usb-gadget-mode portmap exquisite exquisite-theme-freerunner \
 exquisite-themes


 Known issues:

 * GTK redraw problem
 * some obsolete kernel modules still left in system
 * must remove 'ro' in kernel boot parameter if you use sd boot.
 * will purge your incompatible e config, so you might need to set
   stuffs like suspend time again.

 Hi John, All,

 Just upgraded from 2008.9. Things to mention:
 - Boot time decreased. A lot! Thumbs up and a great Thank you for that :)
 - Also, startup time for applications (dialer) seems to have decreased.
 - As mentioned elsewhere, Enlightenment configuration was reset to not
 show the spanner and as the settings utility is unusable and the phone
 tends to suspend after 31 seconds, it is pretty unusable until one
 switches Enlightenment themes according to
 http://wiki.openmoko.org/wiki/Keyboard_Toggle (bottom of the page).
 
 sorry about the settings problem.  we fixed multiple problems
 yesterday (see https://docs.openmoko.org/trac/ticket/2148).  there
 was a really strange line in local.conf saying EXTENDPE =  , which
 will cause a lot of problems.  I have no idea who put that in...

Ah - that would probably also explain the frequent enlightenment crashes
I was going to complain about. I'll test with the new python-etk and see
how it goes from there.

Thanks for your answer,
Andreas

 
 there used to be a wrench and qwerty button enabled theme, and now
 raster's illume default theme (illume-theme-illume,
 illume-config-illume) provides the same functionalities with a very
 different look.  OM's theme will remain as it is like our designer
 wants it to be.  you are free to switch between these two though, by
 setting it inside /etc/enlightenment/default_profile.
 
 - John
 
 - Even after disabling suspend I am having problems. In particular I am
 now experiencing WSoD even after screen blank (probably bug #2115:
 https://docs.openmoko.org/trac/ticket/2115 ). I suppose I need to
 disable screen blank too for now?

 Nevertheless, even though there are problems it's good to see progress.
 Keep up the good work.

Re: CAD conversion and editing

Breakable wrote:
 Hi,
 Anybody got any success for editing CAD files for the phone case?
 Basically I am trying to get them open in brlcad (which seems to be the
 best free CAD software ever),
 without any success yet.

Well... someone seems to have been successful nine days ago!?
http://brlcad.org/gallery/s/screenshots/iges-openmoko-conversion.png.html
Or is there something I don't get about that screenshot?

Regards,
Andreas

 I had some success in VariCad demo (proprietary) where parts of the
 design are imported using STEP format, but it does not seem good enough,
 as I see about 50% of the shapes usually.
 IGES on the other hand seems like a total dissaster.
 The only solution I currently see is buying or pirating the Pro/ENGINEER
 to edit or convert them  to brlcad .g format using the Pro/E to BRLCAD
 converter plugin for Pro/ENGINEER from the brlcad suite. Buying or
 pirating for this task is not the option I like.
 Anybody that has a  Pro/ENGINEER license can assist with that?
 There is a nice description how to do it in
 http://brlcad.org/w/images/6/66/Converting_Geometry.pdf
 in section 4.9 page 27 of pdf.
 After this is done properly, maybe the BRLCAD to DXF converter can be
 used to
 improve accessibility of design files for those that have AutoCad.
 If this issue wont be resolved I don't believe a community effort to
 build on the openness
 of the device will ever succeed.

 Ignas

Re: [2008.9] keyboard PIN

2008-09-23 Thread Andreas Fischer
Hi Matthias,

I think on the default keyboard, a swipe to the right will put the
numbers on top and a swipe to the left will delete numbers. However, you
may be more happy with a different keyboard - see
http://wiki.openmoko.org/wiki/Keyboard_Debate

I'd recommend the keyboard that comes with illume-config (Rasters
keyboard, I think). There is a mod available somewhere on this list that
will ease entering numbers without a stylus.

HTH,
Andreas Fischer

 Hello,
 
 I've update right now to Om2008.9 and was deeply impressed about how the

 I have problems (maybe because of lack of understanding) how to enter
 the numbers for the PIN; from the Wiki I learned that I have to move the
 finger over the keyboard to bring up the numbers, ok; but when I mark
 now the digits they don't move up to the field where the PIN must be
 entered; how is this exactly to handle? and how I can remove wrong typed
 digits exactly?
 
 I played around and was lucky to enter finally the correct PIN, but
 without knowing in detail how to do this :-(

Re: how to change the ring tone on 2008.9 ?

2008-09-21 Thread Andreas Fischer
Hi Glen,

I think the relevant ringtones are in /opt/Qtopia/etc/SystemRingTones/ -
there are two .wav files in there: phonering.wav and alarm.wav.
I tried to change the default ringtone a while back, but had problems
with extremly laggy sound. However, that may be due to the size of the
ringtone I wanted to have. Didn't really check any further.

GSM Firmware crash

2008-09-14 Thread Andreas Fischer
-BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-
Hash: SHA1

Hi all,

Yesterday I experienced a crash of the GSM firmware - my Freerunner
started to vibrate and there was a message on-screen that stated that
the GSM Firmware had crashed and that I would be unable to use phone
functionality. Is this a known bug?
I would open a bug in trac, but I don't have much info about the crash -
it seemed to happen just randomly (I was carrying the phone in my pocket
when it started to vibrate). Unfortunately I fear I've also b0rked the
logs, as I restarted the phone immediately. I needed phone functionality
and wasn't in reach of a computer at that time.
So - anyone else experienced this?

Andreas Fischer

Timing issue

2008-09-09 Thread Andreas Fischer
Hi all,

Does anyone else have the problem of the internal clock being off by a
few hours after rebooting the device? It seems to happen randomly to me
(I have not yet determined a definite cause for it) - but sometimes
after a reboot, the time on the phone is 2h earlier than it should be.
I'd suspect some inconsistency with the timezone, but it hasn't changed
and is still displayed correctly (Germany/Berlin). Has anyone else
experienced this?

Andreas Fischer
