What is Exposure?

I had the right kernel version, but like you, it looks like I was upgraded to a neo1973 archetecture.
Which repo points to the kernel upgrades?

Oh, and i get the same output from running exposure in the terminal.

What do you get if you do 'opkg info kernel'?
Somehow the 'opkg update' followed by 'opkg upgrade'  got me a neo1973
kernl on my FR.
After manually fixing this, I now have:

I haven't at least. If I try to start it from a shell, it still does this:

root at om-gta02:~# DISPLAY=:0.0 app-launcher.py exposure
Can't connect to unix socket - starting daemon ...
root at om-gta02:~#

I wonder if it is related to this:
root at om-gta02:~# ps ax | grep qpe
 1346 ?        S      0:00 /usr/bin/app-restarter The qpe process
vanished. This is bad.?This is not meant to happen and is likely a
sign of?a bug in Qtopia. Please try to reproduce it and?report the
