Contents

Applications

New:

  • OpenTTD. An open source clone of the popular Transport Tycoon Deluxe game.

Updated:

  • TwitterMoko O.4. Packaging improvements following suggestions by experienced Debian Dev.
  • Gpsdcontrol 0.4. A Python script to turn on/off gpsd and gps antenna from the desktop. Add: icon changes to show GPS system state.

Distributions

  • Koolu's Android git is online at http://git.koolu.org/. Look like this tree is maintained by Brian Code, but then who is Sean McNeil is working for ?
  • The Debian wiki page needs (had, CJW?) a good cleanup.

Infrastructure

  • The hottest and latest kernels are Andy's. They have Nicolas Dufresne's patches for WSOD, a power supply driver (pcf50633) rewrite, touchscreen reliability improvements, a WLAN driver using the mainline SDIO stack, Android-readiness, plus all the Kernel features and fixes between 2.6.24 and 2.6.28, especially resume/suspend improvements. As these kernels are larger than 2MB, one need to meddle with u-Boot or use Qi to test them and the newer /sys.

Hardware

  • Erin documentad how to use the OBEX protocol to send files via Bluetooth.

Community

  • Android really jumped up in the hit-parade of the most popular pages.
  • By popular demand, Openmoko opened a virtual merchandise store online. Everybody is invited to post cool t-shirts design. Profits will go to bounties and other programs to aid the community.
  • The FreeRunner is on the cover of December's Linux for You magazine.
  • The community is trying out the bounty system at cofundos.org. As a start, there is one offer for the accelerated X driver, but media player, volume control/mixer, wifi network manager have also been discussed. This is still a social experiment. We need help and more discussion to define the bounties and claim conditions more precisely.

Did you know it? Sean Moss-Pultz introduced OpenMoko's Neo1973 on November 7th, 2006. It was the "Mystery Guest" at the inaugural Open Source in Mobile (OSiM) conference in Amsterdam. The link to the presentation on Openmoko:Current_events is broken, but one can still web archive the PDF or read it online at linuxdevices.
