Yesterday I've received my FreeRunner and with the help of the Wiki I'm
investigating it; I can already connect fine with SSH from my FreeBSD
laptop into the gadget and configured in FreeBSD that the interface gets
the correct IP addr automatically on device ATTACH (I will put the details
into the Wiki there in the FreeBSD section);

I've some first question:

How can I determine the installed Om2008 version? The 'uname -a' says:

# uname -a
Linux om-gta02 2.6.24 #1 PREEMPT Thu Apr 24 08:23:36 CST 2008 armv4tl unknown

is this the Om2008.4 version?

I want to change the keyboard to Matchbox keyboard, is the Wiki still
valid where is reads:

If you use a ScaredyCat release (http://buildhost.automated.it/OM2007.2/) or Om2008.4, use the
opkg remove -force-depends multitap-pad
opkg install matchbox-keyboard-inputmethod
opkg install matchbox-keyboard-im
opkg install matchbox-keyboard-applet

Last question, when my FreeRunner comes up from locked screen (which for
me looks more like a suspend, because the USB goes down as well and the
interface in the FreeBSD disappears), the small icon about the battery
level goes to red '!', some seconds later it turns to full green again;
is this somewhat a known bug?
