You can try FDOM. It's somewhat bloated, but works nicely for me. Suspend with
Power key worked every time (with sound being correctly brought back after
wakeup), it even got calls and SMS messages while in suspend and woke up.

As for an entry PIN - I turned off mine (or actually didn't set one to begin
with), I don't think I need one every time I startup my phone.

Call quality in FDOM is quite nice, there are some small echoes, but no
complaints so far. YMMV, I guess.

You have agpsui, Navit and TangoGPS available, and I think it should work, but
haven't tested it yet. WiFi works (with Mofi) out of the box.

In the recent version USB network is not setup properly because the
functionality was moved from the main kernel to a module. To fix it, simply do
echo 'g_ether'  /etc/modules before you restart the phone, after
installation. Works like a charm.

In overall, I'm amazed with the FDOM, and despite bloat (needs a lot of
space), I think it's the best distro so far, even surpassing Qtopia (GPS).
Now, I wish that someone could port all those cool things to Debian. That
would be awesome!

Keep up the good work.

Nice, I will try this as well. Even Qtopia didn't work out for me. Other
users have the same experience? It usually takes a while before problems
show, and I'm really hoping I will be able to at least phone and sms with a
normal battery life (and resume that works)

I'm assuming you are referring to Qtopia 4.3 right? It was close but not quite 
there. I have very high hopes for 4.4.

I believe a lot of us are keeping our breath and crossing the fingers.
for that promising 4.4, but I'm a little confused about the openess of
the premium modules.

Stable OM distro

2008-09-30 Thread Maciej Piechotka
What's currently the most stable?
I'd need to:
- Entry pin (I haven't manage to do it in 2008.8 despite moving pen up)
- Phone/Recive SMS
- Have GPS/WiFi
- Have USB Networking for initial setup

FSO: Not stable (breakes calls, not recive sms etc.)
2008.8: Can't enter pin
2007.11: Breakes after update (cannot boot)
celtune: usb0: no such device

I had perfectly set-up phone but it had broken and I had it replaced.

Regards

Maciej,
Have you given Qtopia a shot? Also try the trick with 2008 again, 
sometimes if you slide the pen up on the keyboard it doesn't register, 
took me a few tries to get it two switch keyboards. Also give FDOM a 
shot, it's like 2008 but has extra programs by default and the keyboard 
has an easier selection method.
