Description

A combination of apps and fixes to demo the capabilities of the Freerunner and to have a functional phone (sort of). This all while retaining the ability to update through the official feeds.

Any questions can be sent to dsamblas at gmail dot com

Development

I you want to come to the script kidding party :) join us at

http://projects.openmoko.org/projects/fdom/

Serious developers are welcome too :) but remember "if it's cool, it works(in some way),doesn't annoying(too much) rest of things and fits on the nand it's in" :) we will let scalability, stability, resource saving and so on to the OM guys :)

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:

# chmod a+rx /etc/X11/Xsession.d/89qtopia

The following reverts last change to the qtopia startup session file:

# cp /etc/X11/Xsession.d/89qtopia.bk~ /etc/X11/Xsession.d/89qtopia

Now reboot the neo.

15 Sep Updates

  • It seems that there were major updates today that caused dialer to not work , It does happen when you click on dialer and it does exit with Enlightenment error , qucik fix to this is
# ln /opt/Qtopia/bin/qcop /usr/bin/qcop -s

but i believe adding /opt/Qtopia/bin to global system path is better solution (How?).


20080927 and Pidgin

  • I forget to install the following packages to enable ssl (needed by msn) and irc

install the following to make it work

opkg -force-depends install http://www.angstrom-distribution.org/feeds/2008/ipk/glibc/armv4t/base/libpurple-plugin-ssl_2.5.0-r0_armv4t.ipk
opkg -force-depends install http://www.angstrom-distribution.org/feeds/2008/ipk/glibc/armv4t/base/libpurple-plugin-ssl-nss_2.5.0-r0_armv4t.ipk
opkg -force-depends install http://www.angstrom-distribution.org/feeds/2008/ipk/glibc/armv4t/base/libpurple-plugin-ssl-gnutls_2.5.0-r0_armv4t.ipk
opkg -force-depends install http://www.angstrom-distribution.org/feeds/2008/ipk/glibc/armv4t/base/libpurple-protocol-irc_2.5.0-r0_armv4t.ipk
