Warnings

  • If after an opkg update/upgrade dialer, contacts and other qtopia-x11 apps don't work and qpe shows an error window you should check whether the startup file is executable, or revert changes.

The following adds permissions of read and execution to the qtopia startup session file:

Now reboot the neo.

Changelog

version 20080913

  • added Pidgin -> Instant Messaging multiprotocol, installed with plugins for irc and xppm/googletalk. More plugins are avaible on the amstrong repository. There are some gtk gliches, but messaging is functionally usable.
  • added Remoko -> PC remote controler via bluetooth, with gestures it's easy to look like one is performing black magic conjurations, I recommend to train gestures with more subtle moviments ;)
  • added Thomas B. <tommy.b at gmx dot net> illume Raster's keyboard Numbers splitted version-> my wrong pin entries has decreased sensible. Thanks, Thomas !
  • omview e17 theme applied
  • opkg update/upgrade make today

version 20080909

  • Some 20080805 bugs eliminated
  • opkg update/upgrade make today

version 20080905

Installed graphical applications
  • Default apps from OM2008.08-updates excluding Locations

Additional fixes
