Sean's new year interview.

Contents

New applications

  •  LED clock When an Openmoko is sitting unused at night, turn it into an alarm clock with large 7-segment digits on a black background in landscape mode.
  • GPRSsettings is a GUI script designed to change apn, login, dialnumber.
  • Samuel's script for a toggle wifi icon.
  • ylock 0.1 Python screen lock and low battery monits.
  • AppManager 1.0.1 Zenity package manager.

Ports and update

  • Lots of Navit activity. Distributions are kindly suggested to package the sample map separately from the main binary to conserve space.
  • The opkg package manager development moved from OM svn to Google code. The recommended stable version is r172, there is a significant data structures+algorithm refactorization going on.

Hardware and drivers

Tips and tricks

  • Booting 2008.12 from a microsd fails with "Only GTA01 hardware supported by ASoc driver" ? Option "ro" on the kernel commandline is fatal for startup of 2008.12. Check your U-Boot env if you're using that for "ro", or try adding rw to /boot/append-GTA02 if you are on SD Card and Qi.
