you first patch activates gstreamer. Is this on purpose or just because
it works on debian? Or does it work on fso based rootfs systems as well?
When I tried your patches, together with the one from Filip for the usb
cable, the system compiled just fine. But after that: I want a
uimage+jffs2 based system to work with, and debian only installs on SD.
So I tried different scenarios:

- the one recommended with QtEi (without the 2.6.28 patches), but then
  the system doesn't wake up for sms
- the old stable Om2008.12 uimage (without the 2.6.28 patches), but
  then I got the sms duplication issue (but it did wake up from suspend
  for sms's though)
- the fso-console image (with 2.6.28 patches, halting frameworkd and
  fso specific stuff): with the gstreamer patch, I didn't get any sound
  (even after installing everything possible for gstreamer). Without it
  (and using the libmad mp3 patch), it was ok. But voice note recording
  didn't work (and I doubt the bluetooth stuff as well, but didn't got
  around of testing that).
- the hackable:1 distro: never got further than second boot, ssh not
  possible. It seems it wants my SIM card to continue or so ...

I would put my money on working with the fso-console image, and going
from there to build a workable system (maybe even using a small script
that disables frameworkd, installs QtExtended and all that).

So: which uimage to choose? Maybe I messed up the
testing-om-gta02-20090120.uImage.bin tests, so if anyboy can confirm
that their system does wake up using this kernel ... ?
