   There are still bugs being fixed in gsm0710muxd, e.g. this one:

I.e. make sure you have at least version 0.9.2.2.

tried the new firmware for the gsm chipset and 2008.12 yesterday, and made
my first phonecall with the freerunner!!

thanks for the advice

now i only have to try to fix the other problems



2009/1/18 William Kenworthy bi...@iinet.net.au

 Oh and forgot, upgrade to the openmoko-10 firmware for the gsm chipset
 as it helps (not totally, but hey 5/10 is better than 1/10 reboots to
 PIN/register! :) with a number of issues, including PIN and registering
 with 2008.n distros, but not with gsm0710muxd unfortunately.

Booting Debian from SD-card (Was: [fso] sending pin failed)

   You're being cryptic here. Please explain how you know it isn't working.
Anyway, here's how I installed the Debian distribution to an 8 GB SD-card on
a Freerunner (still with Om 2007.2 in the NAND flash ROM):

--- begin Debian on Freerunner HOWTO ---
Purpose:
Install Debian on Neo Freerunner/1973 such that the default u-boot setup
works and dpkg, which doesn't support vfat partitions, is still happy.

Strategy:
Create two partitions (vfat+ext2) but install as if we only use one partition.
Manually copy the kernel image to the vfat partition after installation or
upgrade of the kernel package.

The details:
Read the instructions from the Debian Wiki and download install.sh for your
Neo:

https://wiki.debian.org/DebianOnFreeRunner
https://wiki.debian.org/DebianOnNeo1973

Remap the partitions for install.sh:

# ln -s /dev/mmcblk0p2 /tmp/mmcblk0p1
# ln -s /dev/mmcblk0 /tmp/mmcblk0

Optionally: Verify your setup and set the system time:

# SD_PART1_FS=vfat SD_DEVICE=/tmp/mmcblk0 ./install.sh testing time

Partition and format your SDcard. Either do so yourself or use install.sh:

# SD_PART1_FS=vfat ./install.sh partition format

Run the rest of the installation. Feel free to add options as you see fit:

# SINGLE_PART=true SD_DEVICE=/tmp/mmcblk0 ./install.sh mount debian apt fso 
configuration kernel

Copy the kernel image to the vfat partition:

# mount -t vfat /dev/mmcblk0p1 /media/card
# cp -p /mnt/debian/boot/uImage.bin /media/card
# umount /media/card

Optionally: Copy your existing SSH setup:
# cp -a ~root/.ssh /mnt/debian/root

Unmount the Debian partition:

# SINGLE_PART=true SD_DEVICE=/tmp/mmcblk0 ./install.sh unmount

Clean up:

# rm -f /tmp/mmcblk0 /tmp/mmcblk0p1 ./install.sh
--- end Debian on Freerunner HOWTO ---

[fso] sending pin failed

2009-01-17 Thread Tomas Nackaerts
hi,

i have a freerunner for a few weeks now, but i was never able to connect to a 
gsm network. i tried all distributions, except qtextended, and all gave 
errors.

currently i'm using fso, and when i boot the phone, it asks for a pin, and 
then it fails with the error error while sending pin 

i was also unable to boot a distribution like debian or hackable from a 8gb 
sd-card, but i'm not sure it is related. 

i hope somebody can give me some hints to get these issues fixed.

greatings,

tomas

2009-01-17 Thread arne anka
- please, be more specific about the errors.
- what kind of sim are you using? see the wiki for a listing of known to  
work/not work
- did you apply the gsm firmware update?

Try removing the SD card and see if that helps registering - see the
wiki for the qtopia indexing problem.  Also, give it a few hours and
reboots for the distro to finish setting itself up, indexing etc before
deciding it wont play.

Also, some 8gb and above SD cards need a slower clock - search for sdclk
on the wiki

Try 2008.12 - I find that FSO and SHR which use the gsm0710muxd just
lock up the gsm chipset and dont work - ever :(  Some SIM cards just
dont work at all ...
