From Openmoko

Jump to: navigation, search

I live in Hamburg, Germany. I have a Phase 1 Neo GTA01Bv4 without debug board.

Places I watch:



IRC is here: irc://

What I do all day:

But these days probably more

opkg update && opkg upgrade

And uploading screenshots to: or cat /dev/fb0 >myfile.raw


/etc/init.d/xserver-nodm restart          /* to restart X after starting gsmd or so

Getting proper time on the GUI copy your localtime from your correctly set up ubuntu to the Neo, from the desktop:

scp /etc/localtime root@phone:/etc/localtime

on the neo do:

rdate          /* test this first, did work for me
hwclock --systohc --utc

Rebuild after flashing new image

On host, first:

rm .ssh/known_hosts
scp /etc/localtime root@phone:/etc/localtime
scp ./resolv.conf root@phone:/etc/resolv.conf
scp /etc/ntp.conf  root@phone:/etc/ntp.conf
scp ./gprs root@phone:/etc/ppp/peers/gprs
scp ./chap-secrets root@phone:/etc/ppp/chap-secrets
scp ./pap-secrets root@phone:/etc/ppp/pap-secrets
scp ./gprs-connect-chat root@phone:/etc/ppp/peers/gprs-connect-chat
scp ./gprs-disconnect-chat root@phone:/etc/ppp/peers/gprs-disconnect-chat
scp ./i root@phone:/i
scp ./p root@phone:/p
scp ./b root@phone:/b
scp ./gllin_1.0+r350-r0_fic-gta01.ipk root@phone:/tmp/

On neo, second:

opkg install -d card package, you need to configure it in ipkg.conf

opkg install /tmp/gllin_1.0+r350-r0_fic-gta01.ipk
cd /etc/ipkg && wget
opkg update & ipkg upgrade
opkg install gpsd
opkg install openmoko-agpsui2
#cd /etc/ipkg && wget 
#opkg update && opkg upgrade
#opkg install midori
#opkg install ntp
hwclock --systohc --utc

then, on Neo:

vi /etc/matchbox/session

to include before 'openmoko-dialer &'

cd /home/root/gllin
./gllin &
gpsd -n /tmp/nmeaNP &
  1. /etc/init.d/gsmd stop; /etc/init.d/gsmd start
  2. echo "1" > /sys/bus/platform/devices/gta01-pm-bt.0/power_on

also configure BT (name and passkey) with

vi /etc/bluetooth/hcid.conf

Install tangoGPS

cd /tmp && wget && ikpg install /tmp/tangoGPS_0.1-r1_armv4t.ipk

Set up package management: Install python, ipkg-utils and then:

ipkg-link mount /media/card/

Getting free space:

mv /usr/include/ /media/card/include; ln -s /media/card/include /usr/include
mv /usr/share/openmoko/sounds/ /media/card/openmoko/sounds; ln -s /media/card/openmoko/sounds /usr/share/openmoko/sounds
mv /usr/share/cups/ /media/card/cups; ln -s /media/card/cups /usr/share/cups


umount /media/card
mke2fs -c /dev/mmcblk0p1
vi /etc/ipkg.conf


dest card /media/card/

and then

opkg -d card install python-core
