Quickfix is to ssh into device, edit /etc/init.d/qpe and remove the lines:
-#crappy workaround for some weird suspend bug
-mknod /dev/ttySAC0 c 204 64 -m 660
-chgrp dialout /dev/ttySAC0
which I put in for the 1973 and attempting to get suspend/resume
working. The little crash at first start was fixed in my initial testing

That is because wpa_supplicant has problems on this system. If you can
get it up through the commandline, let me know. I couldn't.
Qtopia runs the script /opt/Qtopia/bin/lan-network for wifi configurations.

They need to be on a web server/feed.
I will set up such a feed this week at qtopia.net
Qpk's are like opkg but with added security features, such as sandboxing
and not running scripts.

Yes, but it only handles qpk's.

GPRS in Qtopia depends on multiplexing, which we haven't yet gotten
working. We will once we get a few more freerunners.

4.4 is it. I am trying to get mgmnt to start qtopia 4.4 snapshots so I
could release images for it.
