* 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 '''r'''ead and e'''x'''ecution 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

Revision as of 12:29, 23 October 2008

FDOM is one of the many distributions that currently work on the Openmoko phones. You can compare a distribution with an Operating System on normal computers. It gives the phone all the software needed for operating. For more information about the different flavors, see distributions.

Contents

Description

A combination of apps(a lot of) and fixes to demonstrate 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.

Until now, flashing the phone was the only way to update to the last release of FDOM but since 20081023 version there is a script called FDOMizer able to update to the lastest version of FDOM any older version of FDOM and is able to transform a brand new flashed OM2008.X on the phone to a full bloated FDOM
