 I've been with Proximus all my life and have always been happy with the
 coverage, technical service.
 I do not use GPRS.
 Proximus is not the cheapest (as mentioned by others).
 Proximus is big so you are a number, I do not get frustrated by that,

 Hello,

  GameRunner is an Openmoko Linux distribution. It aims convert
 the Freerunner open mobile phone in a Linux-based handheld
 game console.
 It is simple, and contains cool and suitable open source games for
 Linux mobile devices.

 http://gamerunner.sourceforge.net/

 We have been working in this idea for a couple of months (in 2009),
 improving current openmoko games, and writting a game control useful
 for any game.
 Our first idea is always to have with us a SD full of games to play.

 Because the last two months we did not do much, I am announcing it,
 so other gamers can try it.

 All the games which use the new gamecontrol does not work
 well the first time you run these. After, all go okey.

 Moreover, we need to improve that general game control
 that we are writting, because it is not so cool yet.
 But well, you can play if you know well it :)

 For other games we have worked improving speed as well.

 If we get some free time to continue we will add super nintendo
 emulator (which we already have tested) and new versions
 of the new game control.

 After, we'll add more games specifically built for this game distro.

 The web site has some docs as well about our work.

 Cheers

  Arne,
 
  You're right. So, please forgive the length of this post:
 
  those entirely tangogps related mails are filling up my account and have
  nothing to do with openmoko.
 
  please, stop abusing other projects infrastructure for your personal
 needs.
 
  I really hadn't intended this to get this crazy, when I posted
  asking Marcus what facilities were available to keep up what he's
  doing upstream and to communicate with the rest of the
  tangoGPS-hacking community.
 
  When I asked those questions, they were intended to be quick and easy
  to answer--and the expected quick exchange was indeed relevant to the
  Openmoko community, since there are so many people here who have been
  using and hacking on tangoGPS (or at least trying to).
 
  But it's devolved into high-traffic tiff with upstream just calling
  people names, and everyone else sharing their *frustrations*.
 
  I don't know if Marcus has actually *watched* (or at least listened to)
  that video that he referenced earlier in the thread (in message-ID
  2010010653.776db...@acer, if anyone actually wants to go re-read
  the whole discussion in gmane or something):
 
 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZSFDm3UYkeE
 
 
  ... but we all should watch it--it's pretty good.
 
 
  As they say, the community mailing-list isn't a group therapy session.
  It's clear that we're not getting anywhere, anyway.
 
 
  So, here goes: I'm forking tangoGPS.
 
  And this doesn't make me a `poisonous person'. This fork is being done
  with all possible respect, and I do still hope that it will be on the
  best possible terms--perhaps like when EGCS forked from GCC, or when
  people `fork' the Linux kernel to work on new subsystems: a good-natured
  fork to do more `experimental' exploration that may not be immediately
  possible or appropriate for Marcus in tangoGPS. Marcus will be free to
  incorporate whatever work we do on this new fork into future releases
  of tangoGPS, if he likes--on whatever timeline he likes; he'll also
  be free to ignore the parts that he doesn't like. As will everyone else.
 
  We're going to have a go at integrating libgps, for example.
 
 
  I'm going to try to do my best to provide a sense of leadership and
  direction on this new project (let's call it foxtrotGPS--I'm sure we
  can find many reasons for that name; I already have a slew of my own :)),
  and to be responsive when people submit patches for review (and hopefully
  inclusion). Even for people whose patches don't go upstream, we'll have
  a Bazaar VCS repository that you can use to keep track of what we're
  doing upstream and help maintain your patches (branches) going forward.
 
  If anyone's interested in relevant public discussion on foxtrotGPS,
  we have the foss-gps mailing list hosted by the folks at OSGeo:
 
 http://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/FOSS-GPS
 
  Thank you, Risto, for asking them create it :)
 
 
  Marcus: if you would like to talk about why I feel the need to fork
  your project and am proceeding despite my afore-mentioned reluctance--
  and what, if anything, it means to you--we can talk about that privately.
 
  Let me know, and I'll give you my telephone-number--e-mail just doesn't
  seem to have enough bandwidth for us; I'd *really* prefer if we could
  keep things cordial and professional between our two projects.
 
 
  So, here we go. It'll be an adventure.
  We can dance if we want to.
 
 
  I know some people are probably going to be very excited by this news,
  but it takes a couple of days to get a fork properly bootstrapped--
  it's not *just* `run through the codebase and change names' :)
 
  So please be patient, let your passions cool a *little* bit,
  and there will be something to show this weekend.
 
 
  Thank you, all.
 
  (And thank you, Marcus, especially!)

 Thanks, I was waiting for that since start of that discussion. If I
 were more interested in GPS apps, then I would do that myself ;) But
 doing something I won't be able to continue just to show something to
 someone would be a non-sense.

 Code available in some decent version control system is a must have to
 me when I'm contributing to some project, and in my opinion not having
 such SCM is good reason to fork.

 I wish both of projects good, as I like TangoGPS, but I don't like
 fact, that it doesn't have any public SCM available for read only
 access. I hope everything from FoxtrotGPS that can be merged into
 TangoGPS will be merged, and thanks to that both projects will become
 better.

Re: tangoGPS community development, patches (was: tangoGPS magnify patch)

2010-04-13 Thread Yorick Moko
Seriously, you know I'm a fan of your software (wrote you a few e-mail IIRC)
but lately, in every thread I read, you are scaring away potential
contributors
and you never really answer the basic questions:

1) why don't you give people feedback on their patches?
2) why don't you use a mailinglist/SVN/bugtracker?
if you did this, you wouldn't have to worry about a fork:
3) what is bad about a fork?

I have no troubles whatsoever if you say: It's my project and I don't want
to give anybody else even the slightest influence
it's your right to do that
but ATM your words and actions are contradictory:

either say
a) that you want to do tangogps solo (or with a select few that you chose)
and tell people to fuck off with their stupid attempts at patches,
or say
b) that they are welcome to try and help out, and set up some infrastructure
or at least give them feedback
either way, there will be no need for anyone anymore to complain to you


Beaviour like this (previous e-mails) is making me consider to opkg remove
tangogps and install a fork as soon as it comes out
and no, this does not mean that forking is bad, this means that forking
gives people a choice
people will chose the best one
(like I did when we couldn't load gpx tracks in the official tangogps
version, but could in a patched version -
http://lists.openmoko.org/pipermail/devel/2009-April/005321.html -)
I forwarded you that message and got no response, for which I personally do
not blame you btw
It was only a forward and took me 2 seconds
But if I had written a patch, and got no response, I would seriously
consider not writing a patch again in the future


And yes, I'm not a programmer, but I have tried to do what I can; help
people on IRC in the early days, file bug reports, do some early testing for
a bunch of programmes, try to give feedback to the creators, add things to
the wiki, I even consider some of my posts on the ML us...)


In short:
please answer those three questions -1) 2) 3)- (or don't, that is an answer
on it's own)
and communicate a) or b)
(or c if you have a different opinion)
just make it sure that everyone knows what they can expect
because at this moment people have made efforts they wouldn't have done if
they had known were they stood (e.g. not getting any feedback to a patch)


I personally hope the project continues to evolve and improve, because I
find it a big addition to the available software on the openmoko.


Kind regards,
yorick

 what does fso do when no sim is detected? imo it should disable everything

 you can use firebug to easily figure out the url of an image. usually
 only the version number changes. a quick check reveals that it is now
 at v=55. if you keep older version numbers, the servers will refuse the
 request.

 Hi folks,

 I am back on SHR since yesterday, and I need some tips to tweak it a bit.

 But firstly, kudos to SHR team for their work. I used SHR until
 September 2009, then QtMoko until December, then Android until
 yesterday. SHR was quite slow and needed some tweaking, but now --
 testing branch 14 january 2010 -- everything works out of the box (GPS,
 wifi, phone, songs) and it's faster (even more if you put the new kernel
 without debug/preempt) and with nice volume controls while calling !

 My questions (from most important to less one):
 - phone goes to sleep mode when tangogps is up and running. How could I

Re: Some questions about Navit

2010-01-08 Thread Yorick Moko
In The Name of Myself

Hi Dehqan


1 - Tangogps has an option that let us to use google sat maps , Can google
sat maps be used with Navit ?
no they can't, because tangogps uses images and navit uses vector data
this is also why the maps for navit are a lot smaller, but scrolling and
zooming takes more time
it might be possible to patch it to let it display google sat images and
display them; and calculate a route based on the (invisible) vectordata, but
that would require MAJOR work I think

2- To set up route , in
thishttp://wiki.openmoko.org/wiki/Navit#Enter_Town step
after selecting country (Iran) , town should be selected , but there is not
town name in list , humble wrote town name manualy now, how to save it ? of
course humble started from
thishttp://wiki.openmoko.org/wiki/Navit#Select_Country step
to setup route . are previous steps required?
The problem would be that the name town you wanted to select isn't in the
map data you downloaded
that could be due to (I think):
town not entered in openstreetmaps
town entered, but no is_in: Iran tag specified of something like that

you can correct this by contributing to OSM and editing the town's label


3 - To use speech http://wiki.openmoko.org/wiki/Navit#Speech option on
Navit ,this speech-dispatcher http://www.freebsoft.org/speechd is required
but it's link http://www.freebsoft.org/speechd is down
I have never used speech, but I can navigate to
http://www.freebsoft.org/speechd
you can check the status of that site here:

Re: Navigation

2009-12-14 Thread Yorick Moko
might be an idea worth considering:

have the possibility to calculate a route, and pre-render the bitmaps of
your route (at a few zoom-levels)
This way it doesn't have to be done on the fly when you know for example
where you are going to travel to
when you don't follow the planned route it will of course render new files
when nescessary

you should also have the option to delete them afterwards of course

or maybe a setting two way trip;
this setting wil save all the rendered files on your way to your
destination,
use the pre-rendered images on your way back, and ask you if you want to
delete them when you return home


just an idea

  I don't have any idea, how the code looks like, but I guess, that you
  use gps-positions as heuristic and distances as edge-weights. That
  means that you always get the shortest path. If you want  to get the
  fastes path, then you have to use timevalues calculated by possible
  speed and edge-length. With openstreetmaps that can be difficult,
  because many roads don't have any speedsproperties. You often only can
  use the roadtype depending on country to guess the speed.
  Maybe you used this, but in a first shit, I guess that you don't.
 
  I hope these ideas can help you improving your tool.

 To make a poor man's screenshot from FR's terminal:

The sleep 5 gives you time to switch to the screen you want to

Re: (patch) new feature for tangoGPS: detail-scaling

2009-11-02 Thread Yorick Moko
please also sent your patches to Marcus Bauer (the author of TangoGPS)

On Mon, Nov 2, 2009 at 4:18 PM, Joshua Judson Rosen roz...@geekspace.comwrote:

 Hi everybody,

 I've added a feature to my copy of tangoGPS, and thought that others
 might be interested: it allows the *details* in the map (e.g.: text,
 icons) to be scaled up (to show fewer details, but make the shown
 details bigger) or scaled down (to render the details smaller, but
 show more of them).

 This has made tangoGPS *much* more usable for me on my FreeRunner,
 because I can actually read the labels for streets, etc. without
 holding the screen very close to my face :)

 (I guess that the OpenStreetMap tiles are rasterised expecting
 something like 96 DPI, but the FreeRunner's display runs at ~280 DPI,
 so text and icons used in OSM tiles is *very* small when displayed on
 the FreeRunner without any upsampling; `zooming the details' by 1
 level makes everything legible at arm's length, and zooming the
 details by 2 levels makes the text easy to read even at a glance while
 driving).

 I've attached 2 separate patches: one patch that adds the `back end'
 of the feature (a new `global_detail_zoom' variable with the
 corresponding gconf hooks, and some minor-changes to the tile-loading
 code), and another patch that adds the front-end GUI for the feature
 (an additional submenu in the map screen, and a couple of new
 callbacks to accompany the new menu-items).

 I added the submenu and menu-items manually in interface.c--it looks
 like Marcus is using Glade to maintain the GUI, but I'm not entirely
 sure (I didn't see glade-file in the tarball...); if he still *is*
 using Glade, then it may make more sense to defined these submenus via
 Glade.

Re: #1024-rework service available

2009-10-23 Thread Yorick Moko
On 10/22/09, Dr. H. Nikolaus Schaller h...@computer.org wrote:
 Hi all,

 some users of Neo Freerunner devices have experienced a limited
 standby time if the GSM modem goes to the deepest sleep mode. This
 became known as the #1024 bug, because that was the number it got in
 the bug tracker (https://docs.openmoko.org/trac/ticket/1024). The
 software workaround was to disable sleep mode 4 as the default.
 Although there is a description of a hardware rework solution
 (http://lists.openmoko.org/pipermail/hardware/2009-May/001192.html
 ) we do not expect that you can do it yourself. Therefore, we have
 worked on a professional approach.

 With the help of a local SMD specialist company in Munich, Golden
 Delicious Computers can now offer a rework service to those who really
 suffer from this problem. Price is 45 EUR (incl. German VAT of 19%).
 If you combine with the Buzz-Rework (for A5 and A6 versions only) it
 is 75 EUR. And there is a rebate for groups of 5 or 10 units.

   http://www.handheld-linux.com/wiki.php?page=1024-Rework

 Nikolaus



 Conditions

   • This service is for the EU harmonized market only (sorry for Norway
  Switzerland)
   • Customer will send in, get rework and get the device sent back
 within approx. two weeks
   • The 2 way shipping cost will be covered by the customer.
   • When choosing a parcel service, please choose one that allows you
 to track your parcel since we are not responsible for incoming
 parcels. For German customers we recommend Hermes-Versand and for UK
 Royal Mail.
   • Please pack carefully, but just the Neo Freerunner (without
 battery, battery cover, headset, pouch, stylus, SIM card, SDcard
 etc.). We are not responsible for lost accessories - only for the
 device. We strongly recommend to use the original black box.
   • In the rare case that we damage your device, you will get a fresh
 Neo Freerunner (but your data is lost).
   • If you have several Freerunners to rework, please add as many
 Reworks as you want to the shopping cart. This will reduce shipment
 cost compared to several single shipments. And, we offer a volume
 discount to encourage group buys (5: 5%; 10: 10%; 50: 15%). Rebates
 are automatically shown in the shopping cart.

 Important notes

   • After payment is done, please follow the Rework Instructions
 (http://www.handheld-linux.com/images/Instructions.pdf
 )
   • Please note that we can handle this service only for customers in
 the EU harmonized market because temporary import/export is too
 complicated if we want to avoid that you (or we) have to pay again the
 import tax for your original Freerunner.
   • This is not a Bass-Fix: http://wiki.openmoko.org/wiki/GTA02_bass_fix

 How to test if my devices works or needs rework

   • obtain a command line (e.g. ssh from outside)
   • open /usr/bin/mickeyterm
   • type these commands (one after the other)
 AT+CFUN?
 AT+CFUN=1 --- only if CFUN? does not report 1
 AT+CPIN=insert your pin
 AT%SLEEP=4
 AT%CSQ=1
 AT+CREG=2
 AT+COPS=0,0
   • wait some minutes. If you see +CREG: 0 and/or %CSQ: 99, 99, 0 your
 device is recamping.

Hi,

thanks for offering this service! (although too bad I already sent my
device once to Germany)
can you give us an indication on how much this would improve batterylife?

I'm assuming it only extends standby-time.

I once saw a graph that indicated that it was a huge boost, but can't
find it anymore

 At the moment, this is not planned. Actually evopedia has nothing to do
 wth downloading the images, this is done by the browser (of course, it
 could be changed). Perhaps you can try to configure the browser to cache
 the images. I don't think that downloading some images in advance is a
 good idea. That's at least not how I use evopedia, I don't read popular
 pages, but of course, if the community convinces me, I will implement it.

 I also changes some basic things to the standard QtMoko version:
 * I create an sdCard installer (Android alike, by flashing qi, rootfs,
 kernel)
 * I add some packages (pkg-fso-keyring vim ntpdate nfs-common mtd-utils
 flite)
 * I add a working version of Navit  (under QX), with speech (flite) with an
 working map (Benelux) on the sdCard under the MapsNavit folder
 * I change the defaults of the fstab (swap on 2nd partition of sdCard),
 nfs-mount to host (192.168.1.200) /media/jffs2

 Maybe this is handy for the rest of the community too? Take a look at the

Re: New version of sgt-puzzles, and a launcher for it

2009-10-04 Thread Yorick Moko
nice!
I like the launcher!

On Sun, Oct 4, 2009 at 7:12 AM, EdorFaus edorf...@xepher.net wrote:

 Hi,

 I finally got some time to set everything up for these things.

 A new version of sgt-puzzles is now in the repository[1], and also uploaded
 on
 opkg.org[2]. There's now a new homepage[3] for it, and the code (for the
 build
 system, patches etc) is available in svn[4].

 This package includes a shell script that lets users disable/enable
 individual
 desktop icons, making it possible to reduce the number even without
 installing
 a launcher. It also includes some basic support for launchers,
 automatically
 removing the desktop icons when a compatible launcher is installed, except
 those icons that have been explicitly enabled (so you can have both a
 launcher, and your favorite games on the desktop for quick access).

 More details on the homepage[3].


 I've also created such a launcher, and packaged it separately. It is fairly
 simple, just displays a grid of plain buttons, but space is so limited due
 to
 the number of games that I'm not sure how to fit anything more fancy
 anyway.

 If someone wants to make a better launcher, there are details for the
 interaction between them on the homepage[3].

 The launcher is also available in the repository[1] and on opkg.org[5],
 source
 is in an svn repo[6], and it has its own homepage[7] with more information.

 To make it easier to discover the launcher, the sgt-puzzles package
 suggests
 it - opkg apparently mentions suggestions when installing the package. :)


 One thing I haven't gotten the launcher to do yet, is single-instancing the
 games. I'm not sure what the best approach for that would be - looking for
 open X windows? looking for running processes? is there a standard way of
 doing this, that would work here? (keep in mind the launcher doesn't stay
 running after selecting a game, so looking at the process tree doesn't
 help.)
 On the other hand I'm not sure how important it is, either.

Increasing GPS accuracy with EGNOS

2009-10-04 Thread Yorick Moko
Hi all,

http://www.esa.int/esaNA/SEM2HGF280G_egnos_0.html

The European Union has opened its Egnos navigation augmentation system for
public use:

The EGNOS signals can be received by GPS receivers equipped with a specific
software. In combination with Egnos signals, the accuracy of GPS navigation
can be improved significantly; according to ESA, users can navigate with an
accuracy of about 2 meters as opposed to GPS alone which provides an
accuracy of 10 meters.



Seems interesting...

 Heya out there!

 First of all thanks for the many positive emails I got over the last

 open hardware gadget on earth - the openmoko phone.

 The new features include:

  * overzoom until level 20
  * upscaling of missing tiles
  * a map scale indicator
  * overhauled this point function
   - easy measuring of distances and ways
   - display of bearing = useful for navigation
  * friend function simplified and you can now add a message
   to your position


 As always, it runs well on your laptop/netbook too. The full release
 announcement is here:

  http://www.tangogps.org/gps/cat/News

 I am currently looking for cool stories/photos/blog entries for
 featuring on the website. Thus send me your stories, pictures or links
 - be it on the Freerunner or any other device.

 Have fun!
 Marcus


Great  news!!
I think this is the most used app for the FR

I've navigated with it on a roadtrip (navit as a backup)
3500km though eastern europe in 5 days (no paper maps or other devices)
I used googlemaps to do the routing, converted the road to gpx and loaded it
in tangogps
this worked great
and we didn't get lost :-)

other apps also use the maps of tangogs (advanced geocaching and evopedia
for example)
which is an acknowledgement that it's a good programme


keep up the good work!
looking forward to further upgrades

 I'm not sure whether the gpx import is part of tangogps by default.
 I once wrote a hacked version that did that.

 In fact it was not a real XML parser, but only a stupid lookup of strings,
 so if it doesn't work any more, it would be easy to make that work again.

   Again , and clarifiacation:

 Yes, I knew that OBM had imported from OCI but to me the only thing
 that matters is how many cells a service has to be used to calculate
 the locations of cells, no matter where's the data from. The more data
 a service has, the more reliable  usable it is for a user (if there
 were applications capable of using any of the services to do the
 location). So if all three services would sync their info daily/weekly
 with having some of their own extra fields I'd be happy as they all
 would benefit from each other and they all would have the same sources
 to do the locationing the only difference being the algorithms. Yes of
 course it'd be a waste of work to maintain three databases.. but isn't
 that the case now anyway?

   I would be fine also to reintegrate cells from CellsHunter into
 OpenCellID too

 Is there something that stops you from doing so?

 this is how I see it, from an end-user point-of-view:

openBmap has the most cells
openBmap maps the most information

all I want is as much cells as possible
AND
know that I'm logging everything that increases the quality of the data
(AFAIK cellhunter logs less information)

openBmap does the trick for both of them

this is of course a personal opinion

 Evopedia version 0.2.2 has been released. The major new feature is an
 interactive map of articles. Images for this map are automatically taken
 from downloaded map tiles of tangoGPS or from Openstreetmap.org if these
 cannot be found (and you are online). If you do not have any images and
 no internet connection, at least the articles are displayed at the right
 location (if the zoom level is high enough).

 Evopedia is an offline Wikipedia reader that can be viewed using any
 browser you like (midori is the default). You need to download a
 Wikipedia dump (apart from the software also available there) from

 The following dump languages are available at the moment:
 Dutch, French, German, Italian and Spanish. Polish is currently in the

 Hi!

 After some serious changes in the dump format that will hopefully speed
 up the title search (aside from cleaning the dump a bit) and other
 changes in the software, evopedia version 0.2 is ready for testing.

 Evopedia is a Wikipedia reader for offline use. Features include:

 - live title search
 - search for geographically near articles
 - images are included when there is a connection to the internet

 midori is the default browser used for displaying the html pages, if you
 don't like it, change it in /usr/bin/evopedia_gui.sh.

 At the moment, there is only a dump of the German Wikipedia for evopedia
 0.2 but others are being generated.

 German Wikipedia dump:
 http://vitels.cs.uni-tuebingen.de/dumps/de/wikipedia.squashfs

 Please help improving the software by testing it and ask for languages
 to create dumps for.


Great!
I really like this project.

I'm interested in a Dutch version.
And I'm sure everyone is interested in an English version.
Which squashfs version do you guys use atm?

 no SIM card, and try to see neighbour cells.

 Is there any work underway into opening/fixing the API? This new map gets

 Writing bb files isn't hard, but every bb file is different for every

 developer should write bb file for his app. That's only few minutes of
 work, and I know SHR and Om2009 will include it quickly in their

 The the best audio quality I think they are the on the ear models, like
 Samsung SBH-600: http://i.i.com.com/cnwk.1d/sc/33647838-2-440-OVR-1.gif

 For the best portable headset I think they are the earplug ones,
 preferably
 with the less weight, like the Sony Ericsson HBH-DS970:

 http://www.sonyericsson.com/cws/products/accessories/overview/hbh-ds970?lc=encc=gb

 As Im before buying a bluetooth headset, Im interesting in this research.
 I would like to have better (bluetooth) headset as I would get with the
 wire headset (through the jack connector). Btw what is the lowest bandwith
 what
 we get through the jack connector? 50Hz? 100Hz?

 Best regards,

Re: The University of São Paulo's intent to join Op enmoko development

2009-07-13 Thread Yorick Moko
this seems to be really good news,
good work!

On Mon, Jul 13, 2009 at 1:02 PM, Jon 'maddog' Hall mad...@li.org wrote:

 Dear Openmoko Community,

 In light of the refocusing of Sean's company on consumer items, there
 has been a perceived vacuum created in the Openmoko community's efforts
 to create next-generation open cellular smart phones.

 I happened to be working with Dr. Marcelo Zuffo, a full professor and
 the head of the Laboratory for Integrated Systems at the University of
 São Paulo, Brazil, on an unrelated project.  I asked Dr. Zuffo if the
 university would be willing to join the Openmoko community and to
 provide critical resources to the task at hand.

 I subsequently have met with Dr. Zuffo several times on this matter,
 have seen his facilities (which include a very modern and
 state-of-the-art SMT line) and have discussed the goals of the community
 to design and prototype a completely open design for a cellular phone.
 Dr. Zuffo and the university understand your issues, understand free and
 open source software and hardware and are willing to assist the
 community with this project.

 I might add that the university can bring several new capabilities to
 the community:

 First of all, Dr. Zuffo has discussed the Openmoko project with the
 Minister of Telecommunications of Brazil, and the Minister is very
 enthusiastic about the concept.  Having the support of the government of
 the twelfth largest economy behind the project might really help us with
 various negotiations with vendors.

 Secondly the University has been working on several aspects of
 telecommunications for a long time, and therefore has expertise in
 telephonic security and codecs (among other things) that could be of use
 to the Openmoko community.

 Third, the university has the ability and expertise to design new
 integrated circuits.  Recently they designed a a range of analog-digital
 chips.  Therefore the possibility of developing, manufacturing and
 freely licensing new chips to help reduce the cost of the phone is
 possible.

 Forth, while the facilities I mentioned are capable of producing up to
 10,000 units at the rate of one circuit board every 30 seconds,  the
 purpose of the facilities is research, developing and support projects
 that can lead innovation, the lab's charter does not allow them to
 manufacture more units then the 10,000 because that would be commercial
 production.  Therefore the university has a goal of freely licensing
 the design to companies for manufacture.

 Fifth, the university would be happy to host the mailing lists and
 forums of the Openmoko project.  If some of the software projects need
 hosting and can not find hosting services other places, the university
 will consider acting as a primary hosting facility for these projects.

 Sixth, personally I would like to see this concept extended, of inviting
 more universities and their facilities to help with this project
 world-wide.  I hope that the leadership of the University of Sao Paulo
 will help create the structure and inspiration for this to happen.

 Finally, the university has a non-profit legal entity, LSITEC, which can
 easily do the type of paperwork that Sean's company did (NDAs,
 certification) so the community can leverage off that.

 I know that there will be a lot of questions and considerations to take
 before the community is comfortable with this relationship.  Dr. Zuffo
 has asked that I help coordinate the joining together of the university
 with the community, and in the interest of seeing Openmoko continue to
 do the fine work started by Sean and all of you, I will be glad to help
 in this capacity.  I am monitoring the community mailing list, and
 people are also welcome to email me directly (mad...@li.org) with
 questions that you do not (for any reason) wish to post to the list.

 A copy of Dr. Zuffo's letter of intent is below.  I have the original
 PDF if anyone would like to see it, but it was too big to make it
 through the community's standards on mailing lists unmoderated, and I
 thought you might like to see this as soon as possible.

One thing I don't understand:
intone with a2dp: mplayer usage around 40% and sometimes spikes to
everything available (80-85%) == no fluent playback
intone without a2dp: 12% cpu == fluent playback

how come?

Pioneerdigitalpion...@gmail.com wrote:
 If you do implement this in Intone (I see the merits of having it as a
 system-wide option, but then, how many apps are playing sound at one time?),
 beware that if the bluetooth headset refuses to pair, or if the bluetooth
 chip is turned off, mplayer freezes and Intone does too. I have to kill them
 both manually. So be sure to power on the BT chip before playing music with
 it. Also, you have to beware that the headset may not pair with the phone
 automatically, it may require authentication. mplayer won't handle that, and
 will lock up. Of course, it's not Intone's job to do this either, but I
 would like to see Intone run (and close) even when mplayer locks, and
 preferably Intone could kill mplayer when it exits if mplayer is locked.

 I hope that all made sense, I'm a bit tired right now. :P

 Openmoko, please can you release relevant infos or chips, so we can

 According to the schematics of the FR, the ID line of the battery is
 not connected to anything (R1769 is marked NC). I checked my FR rev A6
 (from your shop Christoph!;)), and this resistor is not populated.
 So it means the ID line of the battery is definitely not used.

 Now I'm not saying it is safe to use whatever battery, i'm just saying
 that the power management chip (the PCF 50633) is not able to read any
 information out of the battery you fit in your FR (like battery ID,
 serial number, etc...).

 I would say that as long as you use a 3.7V single-cell Li-ion battery
 that has built-in protection, it should be safe to test with your FR.
 The only drawback you'll get is a longer charging time.
 not-really-sure
 The FR is designed/programmed to charge at 500mA max. It should be
 possible to change the charging rate in software (u-boot and/or
 kernel), or perhaps by doing some HW mods.
 /not-really-sure

 I'm not a battery expert, complementary information welcome!

 According to the FR battery page [1], they say that FR use a smart
 battery (model number CT-GTA02 [2]) but i can tell you that i don't
 have such a thing in my phone, i actually have a battery marked
 Model: GTA02, which is definitely not a smart battery (it has only 3
 pins), this battery correspond more to what's describe on the Neo
 battery page [3]. Moreover, the schematics of the FR show that it use
 only 2 signals of the battery: V+ and V-.

 service is back to normal.

 * As it has been said on a previous thread by others, opencellid data
 have been imported in our database.
 Why did we import it? We think the data from oci could be
 of better quality with some additions. So far, we could not get an
 agreement about this from Thomas. So we still aim at people logging
 through obm for better quality. But to propose right now the best
 coverage to our users, we use oci data too, where no obm data is
 available. But the idea is to replace it with obm data with time, as it
 comes in.

 Again thanks to all the people who helped us, and for the nice comments.

Currently I use mplayer -ao alsa:device=bluetooth /mp3/

 have
 to set up the device too (pairing etc). Hence, the current status.

  What would be the best way to do this? I could pick up the audio output
 driver
 from a configuration file. Or does anyone have any other ideas?

  Especially, if users need to switch from the FR speaker / headphone to
 bluetooth
 device and vice versa - is intone expected to handle this?
I don't know..
but I do know it would be VERY convenient for me (and probably
everyone who likes to listen to music with BT)

I will test the solution of Michael Sheldon, but this is not a real
solution, it should be configurable, everbody wants to use the
speakers or headphones now and then

a button in intone would be very useful

 I flashed fs and kernel images on NAND (using neotool)and I tried to flash QI

 koolu one (and got stucked on it).
 When I'm trying to boot from the NOR menu using 'Boot' choice, I got messages

 I already had this problem before but it was solved by someone on a Bearstech

 Do I understand correctly that you were not able to flash QI into NAND?
 Maybe a Koolu bootloader is causing the strange behavior...
 BTW do you know whether the NAND is partitioned as well?

 Maybe an experienced bootloader guy can test installing Koolu Android and 
 reverting back to SHR or
 om2009 to investigate the issue?
 It took me quite some experimentation, trial and error to get my phone back 
 to normal.


 One can't easily do anything with NOR u-boot. It does its own
 computation of NAND partitions. If koolu has some special bootloader
 (i guess it's a Qi fork) just boot to NOR and replace Koolu's version
 with stock OM's Qi. Easy as that.

Re: Cellhunter/OpenBmap

My personal preference goes out to openBmap,
because I think they combine quality and quantity;
quality: they log the most data (they are even working on TA)
quantity: they have all the cells of cellhunter and opencellid

I could be mistaken but from what i heard from onen (the creator of
openBmap) on ML and irc, I got the impression that he DOES want to
work together,
just not only sharing data, but i could be wrong

Re: a new keyboard - discuss and critique

 I think the fact that it's not like you describe the whole idea of the design 
 ;)

 Go to the page on El Reg and try and type your name by pushing your
 monitor. It's stupid, yes, but it gives you an idea of how it would
 work. It seems, without any feedback, to be very nice. The fact that
 all the triangles are orientated the same way means you get a huge
 area of triangular free space around each key, that lets you mash at
 them without accidentally hitting another.

 I don't think it's about training your hands as others have said, it's
 about providing a key with a lot of free space around it - effectively
 you've made the key bigger (because you can hit any are around it and
 sort of hit the right one without mis-hitting another) whilst
 keeping the overall size very small.

 Its genius is its simplicity.

 Hi.

 I'm not sure where I messed up this time but hopefully someone can
 point it out.

 Few days back I had a fully functional SHR unstable (not the latest I
 guess). Calls worked fine. I updated, got the problem that calls
 started to echo again - see thread called Re: [shr] [om2009] call
 volume in shr-unstable. I changed
 my /usr/share/openmoko/scenarios/gsmhandset.state according to the
 instructions in the thread as well but can't tell for sure if the
 current problem started then. At one point however I had completely no
 sound at all during calls and the other side didin't hear me either.
 At that point returning gsmhandset.state to the original did not help
 either. Well, I mess up my SHR about once or twice a month so that's
 not a big deal and today I installed the latest unstable:

 kernel:
 uImage-2.6.29-oe10+gitr119809+f16c3431a1a7510eb3504ec5d96677dd0fac4cd6-r3.4-om-gta02.bin

 image:
 shr-shr-image-glibc-ipk--20090523-om-gta02.rootfs.jffs2

 I updated it as well.

 Now the peculiar thing is that the problem still remains after the
 reflash. I was sure that it was the gsmhandset state file that was
 messed up but now I'm not so sure.

 Does anyone have any ideas? The audio is not completely broken as I can
 play mp3s on the device. I suspect that it's not a SHR-wide problem
 either as I haven't seen anyone complain yet.

 Hi all,

 as previously announced on freeyourphone.de here is my enhanced TangoGPS
 that I used exclusively for geocaching since I received my FR about a year
 ago. Due to time constraints I will not be able to keep up its separate
 development from mainline tangogps anymore, and since my changes havn't been
 included since 0.9.5 I'd rather have them published raw as they might be now
 than forget about them.

 Main features I added are the ability to do complete paperless geocaching
 along with several small fixes:
 - map tiles are scaled from a lower level if they are missing in current
 resolution
 - coloured tracks based on height/speed/...
 - in the scripts folder, there is a script to convert PocketQueries to a
 geocache.db
 - a script to upload fieldnotes of found caches to ease logging

 As I haven't received any official reply to my request to geocaching.com to
 allow inclusion of their icons, one has to manually do so - see the script
 in the pixmaps dir  hint,hint

 Sorry documentation is lacking, but at least you have the code, and most of
 the features should be self-explanatory.
 The binary is UNTESTED, as my FR is still getting BUZZ-fixed...

 Feel free to include or enhance any of this, and I'd be very happy to
 receive your feedback - but please keep in mind this is my first (and after
 all, I hope my last) GTK coding attempt when judging the code ;-)

 first batch this week by the SMD rework company. But I am sure we will
 have the first major batch reworked by mid of next week.

 just curious

 I completely understand...

 Looks great but PLEASE use /home/root/Maps to store map tiles - share

 NO!
 please, use $HOME/...
 this we're all root! madness has to stop -- and hardcoding paths like
 that is really bad anyway.

 Oops, sorry, you're right :) But anyway I think it'd be great to use
 the same folder that Tangogps uses ($HOME/Maps) - I have some 300 000
 png tiles there, it's just waste of space, bandwith and time to
 download separate files for both - and if/since everyone will symlink,
 why not do it by default..
 Good point, just check in if the direrectory exist if true symlink if
 not create it.
