I was beginning to think my GPRS modem was busted. ;) I wonder if power
management is working yet. The pppd docs say leaving gprs on eats lots
of power. (The whole battery in 2 hours...)
The wiki page says that it doesn't interfere with phone calls, but
doesn't go into more detail.
Anyway, [music|gps] + gprs + phone seem to play nice in FSO. (I hacked
up a openmoko-mediaplayer package. Headphone insertion isn't detected
yet, but it does mute/stop the music when you pick up the phone).
Now I just need music and tangogps to work at the same time. The
framework gps thing is a CPU hog, as is ogg/gstreamer...
