[edit] Distribution Updates

Qtmokomain.png Qtmoko [v22]

QtMoko is distribution based on Qtopia (or QtExtended) from Trolltech for your Neo Freerunner. Here is list of changes since stable version (v19):

  • hopefully fixed bug #80 (lost sms, thanks to Judge_Gregg's great bug report)
  • SMS messages should stay on SIM now
  • wifi always available after boot (OM bug #2327) thanks to Gennady for his fix.
  • more sane power management values by default (suspend after 5 minutes)
  • added path to /usr/games (for scummvm and other games)
  • modified kernel config - all FR hardware is now build in
  • in QX you can enable rotation using accelerometers
  • QMplayer uses /media/card for saving media if possible
Changes since v20&v21:
  • fixed power management to correctly detect cable
  • fixed GPS power up script (NeronGPS now works just fine again)
  • workaround for the GSM (restart not needed now)
  • added omhacks for controlling Neo hardware from command line
  • new application Neocontrol for controlling Neo sysfs and other tasks
  • implemented power management for locked/unlocked screen
  • build fixes and code improvements (Bartlomiej Zimon)
