 Hi,

 is it possible to use GPRS with the current FDOM image?

 If yes: Is there a GUI or do I have to adjust the config files by hand?

 files and what do I've to edit there)


The current FDOM image - you mean FDOM 20081023? I don't know about
that (because it had so many problems and bugs, that I flashed back to
FDOM 20080927 right after trying 20081023), but in FDOM 20080927 it
was easy to get GPRS working. I followed the instructions here -
http://www.teaparty.net/technotes/openmoko-2.html#GPRS . FDOM already
has gsm0710muxd installed, so you have to start from where it says:
The files needed are  I just copied these files to my phone,
changed mobile.o2.co.uk in chat-gprs file to my GPRS providers
address and started the connection with ./pppd-start and later killed
the connection with killall -15 pppd. Probably you can install some
GUI too, but I didn't think it is nessecary. If you don't want to
start it from command line, just make two .desktop files - one for
pppd-start and one for killall -15 pppd.

I don't know :-/ I have been trying for a while... I'm not sure whether 
it is the software versions and bugs, phone network doing silly things 
or the stupid user stopping it working.

You need to adjust the config files by hand.You can start it from GUI 
from the services panel, once it is configured.

 If I've to adjust the config files by hand, is there a howto? (which

I don't think so. I've been looking for a modern OM 2008.XX GPRS howto 
for a long time and none exist really as far as I know.
