Hi Niko,
  

Nice to hear that. Anyway do not missunderstand, our team is adopting
oFono, we are just digging incoming issues with the nogsm part
integration!!!




Sounds interesting.  Let me know if I can be of assistance :)

  


Well, maybe you missed some of my previous email in this list some time 
ago :)
I'm the project leader of a new distribution, called NEOPhysis, for the 
Openmoko Freerunner and Niko is the UI team leader.
We are about 10 people in our team and started from scratch creating a 
new distribution which differs from the others, approaching the system 
concept as an embedded low resources device instead of a micro-desktop 
system.
The main focus was not in a Linux distribution but in a Phone with 
advanced capabilities, so as I follow this project since its born, I 
proposed to use oFono as the main telephony stack and FSO for the 
remaining part.
As a proof-of-concept I wrote a ncurses phone app which uses oFono to 
do simple calls and ATM I'm able to call a number dialed with the touch 
screen (yes it's very geek! :P ) and I'm finishing the parsing part to 
handle the call status to be able to answer calls.
I asked in my previous emails if someone of the oFono team could send me 
a simple C code because all the test code were written in Python (but 
for the telephony part our focus is speed and reliability so its 
mandatory to use a C/C++ framework/middleware) but received no answer, 
OTOH this let me learn using DBUS and oFono APIs so it was not as bad :)
We put up a build host which produces even an oFono package for the 
OpenEmbedded repository and we are very proud to be the first (AFAIK) to 
use oFono. If you need/want to test oFono on the Freerunner we can 
provide you the packages built each time you need to.
I have just one question: I noticed the Calypso modem registers on the 
network quite slowly (about 1,5-2 mins after powering up) is this 
normal? Can we help you in testing/patching the code to achieve faster 
times (normal phones usually register in seconds).

Thank you very much for your great work, good bye.
Dario.

Actually a reference UI for oFono is something we're still lacking.  We've all 
been too busy adding core features.  This is something we want to fix...
  
I know, following the list I imagine you're very busy. Maybe I can send 
you my code (after finishing and cleaning up) if you want a simple C 
test program...

This might have been related to automatic operator scanning.  Freerunner is 
especially slow on this operation.  The API was changed recently to disable 
this.  Can you test git HEAD to see if this still happens?

Do I have to take the git code or these features are already in the 
current 0.10 version?

Bye,

First oFono based distro prototype for Freerunner

2009-12-04 Thread DJDAS

Hi all,
thanks to your great work my team and me were able to complete a first 
prototype of a mini distro running on the Freerunner (the base for our 
big project Neophysis) with a minimal ncurses phone application to use 
(and test) oFono.
I would like to share our work with you, and if the Calypso developers 
want to try it they can download the rootfs at the following link: 
http://uploads.telefoninux.org/leos/armeniacum-20091202-1823.tar.bz2 
(kernel is inside boot directory)
As the team leader I'm proud to share this first milestone (it's 
unoptimized yet so don't expect miracles ;) ) with you as, since its 
announcement, I believed oFono was (and is) a very good project and 
choose it as the mandatory phone subsystem.

Thank you very much for you work, bye.
Dario.
P.S. the tar was created using the git version I tested last time, not 
with the 0.12 release I saw just today.
P.P.S for any doubts using the phone application, to not spam the list 
please feel free to contact me in private.
