 Your description implies that the upgrade left you with a missmatched
 kernel and modules, or no modules - can you flash your original kernel
 back (you do keep backups/versions? :)
 
 Put a distro on an SD card, boot and install the matching modules
 package.
 
 Just depends how much you lose with whats on the phone - easier just to
 reflash and start again if nothing valuable.

How do I reflash when I can't get to the boot menu?  The boot menu I'm
talking about is the one when you hold the aux button and press the power
button.  If that's the NOR boot menu, then I can't get to the NOR boot menu.

I'll try what Brian suggested in his email and leave it with no power
(battery or charger) for a while... I'll do overnight, because I can't
remember if I left the battery out for any length of time after this has
happened.

I'll let everyone know if this works.

Thanks!  :)

My FR has been sitting all day turned off, and I just went upstairs to prep
it for an overnight without the battery, but I decided to see if I could get
to the NOR boot menu one more time before I let it sit overnight, and
whadayaknow... it came up to the boot menu.  :D

The USB port still isn't recognized, so I can't charge it yet, but I can at
least reflash now.  :)

Thanks Brian!

Further update this morning, since letting the FR rest worked, I
re-flashed the kernel with the SHR kernel from March 4th (I think it's the
4th... it's the most recent kernel flash image on the site).  To see if the
kernel modules were what were preventing the USB from being recognized, and
the USB is still unrecognized.  My last backup was done a week or two ago. 
I think I've only added a couple of appointments since then (gpe-calendar).

My buzz may be software related too, because I first started getting
complaints about buzz after I upgraded in February.  I had never had any
complaints before that, so I may just be able to alter a configuration and
get it fixed.  I have the skills to do the buzz fix on my own (experience
with circuit board soldering and modification), but I'm not sure my current
soldering gun has a fine enough point (Cold Heat).  I was considering doing
mine anyway and then offering up a buzz-fix party or maybe do it for those
that can't.  I was hoping to be able to take the lazy way out.  ;)

Do you actually leave the FR running for 10 days straight?  That may be the
problem.  There was an issue a while back with problems after the FR had
been left on for a while, and the popular answer was to reboot daily.  I
typically reboot once every 2 or 3 days.

I don't know if anyone will be able to indicate a similar experience mainly
because I'm not sure if anyone leaves theirs on that long.

Serious problems after failed upgrade

2010-03-16 Thread vancel35

I tried to upgrade last night (Mar 15th), and it didn't complete, but the
display got messed up enough that I couldn't continue the process.  I
thought the upgrade was complete since the command prompt was back, so I
rebooted.

After the reboot, I have a few problems, and I'm not sure how to fix it.

1) the boot menu doesn't come up (aux-power)
2) when booted normally, it doesn't recognize the USB connected, and the
battery doesn't charge.
3) I can't start any programs except the terminal. (this means I can't dim
the backlight to make the battery last longer and gain more time to solve
this problem)

I have an A6 FreeRunner, and since the brick problems were fixed by the
boot menu, I didn't buy the debug board.

Is there any way to recover my phone?  If I need to buy a debug board,
hopefully I'll be able to find one.  If there's something I can do to get it
to even get to the boot menu, I'd be happy.

In hindsight I should have left it turned on, connected via SSH and finished
the upgrade without a reboot, but unfortunately I didn't. :(  I've never
lost the boot menu.

I'm on SHR-unstable, and my bootloader is Qi.

I appreciate any help offered.

Worst case is I'll get into the phone, copy everything that I want to the

The reason I tried for the upgrade was that on top of being my daily phone,
I've recently been using it as a mobile data connection for my netbook, but
after what seems like a specific amount of data is transferred, the GPRS
connection and mdbus locks (have to reboot the phone to recover).  I hoped
that there was an upgraded driver, because I remember someone talking about
dropped connections after data transfer.

Re: [SHR-U] Wifi stopped working

2010-02-18 Thread vancel35

An update here.

I upgraded my phone the night before last, and my wifi works again.  I had
just given up and was upgrading nightly.  I'm not sure what specific package
fixed it, but I noticed that some of the core packages were updated (such as
phonefsod, libframeworkd, mdbus2, etc.).

I think that I had found that it was that the dbus couldn't control the wifi
radio.  I'm not sure where the disconnect was, but the apps would call the
dbus, and the wifi radio wouldn't respond.

No matter which specific package it was, my wifi works now without me doing
anything beyond update/upgrade nightly.  I didn't add any extra kernel
modules or anything.

I got this in the SHR feeds the other night, and the speed numbers are

I had noticed that it was faster too, but since I hadn't read the list of

I don't know if what I saw was the same problem, but I left mine on my wifi
ovenight and when I woke up, it wasn't responding very quickly, but as far

I didn't even think about the Wifi being the problem.  If it's data-related,

Navit memory leak

2010-01-29 Thread vancel35

I recently did an opkg update / upgrade, and a new version of Navit was
installed.  I am a new user to Navit, so I have it turned on even when I
know where I'm going to learn how its routing engine works in practice...
and because new programs are fun. :)

Since I've been taking the same route every day, I know Navit with my
current configuration should be able to handle my daily commute.  However,
after the update, Navit seems to have a SEVERE memory leak.

I tested my theory by running an ssh session from my desktop and running
htop within it.  I started Navit and let it sit for a few minutes to watch
memory.  On start it was using about 10% of my total RAM, and it didn't
change for several minutes.  My FR had 79MB in use before Navit start and
82MB in use after Navit start.

I suspected that it had to do with a malloc() call to render part of the map
without freeing the memory that is now off-screen, and that appears to be
the problem.  I tested it by dragging the map and letting it redraw that
part of the screen, and each time, Navit consumed more RAM.  After dragging
the map for only 1/2 of my commute distance, Navit has increased RAM usage
to 17%, and my total memory is now at 92MB used.

I'm sure the memory fills more quickly when I'm driving, because I have
auto-zoom enabled, so it's getting multiple zoom levels in memory for the
same map area.

Is this a known issue?  For such a short trip (13 miles / ~20Km), I wouldn't
expect such a severe memory leak.

The only configuration items I've changed from default is that I enabled
autozoom.  Other changes were after this memory leak appeared in attempts to
make it stop such as downloading different size map regions from OSM (city
level, region, state).

An interesting note is that as I've been sitting here typing this email
(about 15 minutes), it's slowly been releasing memory.  Releasing it at such
a slow pace seems silly when I'm using the car configuration.  I'd
actually rather have it not try to cache those rendered sections and just
re-render if I return to the area.

Hopefully I've given enough information to be useful in debugging.

-Laura

Re: [SHR-U] Stop keyboard auto-display?

2010-01-27 Thread vancel35

I recently did an update / upgrade, and I've notice that the problem is back,
but more stupid.

I removed the package again (matchbox-keyboard-im), and the package that
depended on it but provided no files (opkg files showed the package name,
but nothing in the list).  I suppose that package was simply added to create
a dependency on the other package.

The complaint I had in non-GTK apps is still there, but now it's more
severe.  Any time I close an app such as the power settings, the keyboard
has to pop up because of that click and it stays visible on the settings
page even though there are absolutely no entry fields.  In fact, almost any
time I click a Python button, the keyboard appears.

In the messages (SMS) app, if I'm going through and deleting my old
messages, the keyboard pops up every time I click Options so I have to
wait for the screen to redraw.  Then the keyboard stays there regardless of
the fact that there is nothing that allows text entry on that screen.

Why does it seem that the keyboard is being forced to be more obtrusive when
I want it to be less obtrusive?  If there were some kind of setting that I
could turn off, I'd be happy, but there's nothing.  

Maybe a lot of people like the keyboard popping up when you don't want it
(and in places where you can't even use it), but I'm not one of those.

Re: [debian/fso] autosuspend does not work anymore

2010-01-27 Thread vancel35

I have the opposite problem.  Mine suspends regardless of settings.

In fact, I did my upgrade a week or so ago, and at first I could turn off
the auto-suspend switch in the power settings screen, but it would still
suspend regardless.  Now it doesn't even let me slide the switch to the off
position.  I slide it, but it goes back to the on position.

If I could at least set the timeouts, I'd be happy, but I can't even set the
timeouts via the UI or directly editing the config file (frameworkd.conf). 
My values are still in the config file, but they are never used in the
system.  When I try to set them via the UI, they don't update.

1) enter power settings app
2) note value for suspend time (30 seconds, but value in frameworkd.conf is
600 seconds)
3) update time (shows updated time... 60 for example)
4) quit power settings app
5) enter power settings app
6) note value for suspend time is back to the original suspend time (30
seconds in my case, but frameworkd.conf still shows 600 seconds).

You mention the DPI in other posts, so that may be what's happening.   I
always update the DPI to make everything smaller, and this time I reflashed
didn't change it.  I'll have to update my DPI when I leave work today and
see if the speed font is smaller.  However, it would still be nice if it

The larger issue about DPI is that everything is too big on the screen.  I
like the icons to be finger-friendly, but the text below them doesn't need
to be readable from across the room... but that's not what we're discussing

Did you change anything in the position / speed algorithm?  It doesn't seem
to have as much jitter when stopped as it did before.  But I've also updated
my distro of SHR-U to the December 5th release, so it may have been
something upstream or maybe just a coincidence.

Keep up the good work.  TangoGPS is an awesome program. :)

[SHR-U] Stop keyboard auto-display?

2010-01-05 Thread vancel35

Back in the days of the April release for SHR-Testing, the keyboard wouldn't
auto-display, and I thought that was somewhat inconvenient, so I was happy
when I upgraded to SHR-U and saw that the keyboard would auto-display when I
clicked in text fields.

However, I've found that the behavior is more annoying than having to pull
up the keyboard when I want it.  There are many times that a program will
automatically put the cursor into a text field, and I don't want to do
anything with that text field, so I have to manually close the keyboard. 
Then I click somewhere else on the screen, and it happens to go into a text
area again... the keyboard auto-displays, and I have to manually close it
again.

Is there a configuration that I can tell it to only display and hide
manually?  I want it to stay invisible until I want it, and I want it to
stay visible until I'm done... indicated by hitting the button to activate /
deactivate.  I don't want it to try to interpret when it thinks I want it
and when I don't.

I've searched the mailing list using Nabble, and the only thing I found was
from when the matchbox keyboard was a separate application, and there was a
separate configuration (/etc/matchbox/session).  Unfortunately that path
doesn't exist in the December release.

Thanks for any info.

2010-01-05 Thread vancel35

I've noticed that each version that I've upgraded of TangoGPS has increased
the font size for the speed display on the map screen.  I don't need or want
it to take up 1/4 of the screen as it does now.  I've looked inside the
TangoGPS config file (~.gconf/apps/tangogps/%gconf.xml), but I couldn't see
any options to set the font size.  Although I have to admit that some of the
config option names are slightly cryptic.

Is there a setting to reduce the font size?

Thanks for any info.

 That's matchbox-keyboard-im which makes keyboard popping up
 automatically with GTK+ apps (don't be suggested with name, on default
 install matchbox-keyboard-im pops up Illume keyboard ;)). You can
 uninstall that package.

Ok, that worked for GTK+ apps, but what about the rest of them?  There are
text fields in the settings python apps that if you touch the wrong area,
the keyboard still auto-displays.  Is there any way to stop it there as
well?

Even if it can't, the fact that it's stopped in GTK+ apps is very helpful,
so thank you very much for that. :)

 Don't know about any configuration options, but had the same issues and
 changed it in my geocaching patch:
 
 change this line in src/gps_functions.c after setting global_font_scale to
 sth like 40:
 
 @@ -94,7 +94,7 @@ osd_speed(gboolean force_redraw)

 global_font_scale /100);
   pango_layout_set_font_description (layout, desc);
   pango_layout_set_text (layout, buffer, strlen(buffer));
 
 
 HTH, Stefan
 

I haven't installed the OM development stack yet, and I haven't installed
the geocaching patch.  Since PANGO_SCALE looks like a global variable, I
tried to find a global pango config file, and I couldn't find anything.  I
tried to set the PANGO_SCALE as a global shell variable, and no luck.

In your code snippet, it seems like that hard-coded 60 should be a
user-definable variable from the config screen or at least a config file.

I guess it's time for me to install the OM dev kit.

Thanks for the info. :)

[SHR-U] Auto-Suspend problems

2009-12-19 Thread vancel35

I just installed the SHR images (kernel and rootfs) from December 4th, and I
also upgraded to Qi for my bootloader.  I assume that Qi wouldn't cause my
problem, so that leaves the newest version of SHR.

The default suspend options are
auto-suspend: ON
suspend:  40s

I always give a larger timeout for suspend, because I like to actually be
done with my phone before it suspends on me.  So I set it to about 5
minutes, and 30 seconds for the screen blank rather than 10.

The changes will not stick.  I've changed them probably 20 times, and they
won't stay.  I've even set the auto-suspend to OFF, but it keeps suspending.  

After I messed with that for a while and decided to leave it alone, I was on
a phone call, and it suspended in the middle of the conversation.  I thought
the call dropped, but when I pulled my phone away and the screen didn't wake
on touch, I hit the power button to un-suspend.  Luckily my friend hadn't
hung up on me, and the call continued, but that seems a bit crazy.

Is there some reason that a freshly flashed phone won't save the power
settings and honor the auto-suspend switch?

Thanks for any info.
