full-keyboard for Om 2008.08?

ok, I tried install the link
but it doesn't work out with the default repositories that are installed by

I just added src/gz daily-armv4t-P
http://buildhost.openmoko.org/daily-feed/armv4t/ in armv4.conf (...I guess
raster hinted that this is not 'supported' repo)
next opkg update and opkg install illume do the trick.
Restart x-server and I have a configuration in illume-config to choose
keyboards between none and default. None gives the default
oooohh-feeling-sms-only keyboard. Default gives a full qwerty board (the one
which appeared in last few builds of ASU). (It seems that I need to restart
xserver for the changes to take effect).

My next problem is how to add the number and default keyboard profiles to
the keyboard provided by illume.
I tried to find illume-keyboards-default, etc but don't which repo to find
them in.
I also tried to copy the .kbd(s) [from svn] into
/usr/lib/enlightenment/modules/illume/keyboards but that crashed

Any help


PS: I would love to be able to switch between the illume-keybd and
oooohhh-keybd without restart X.
