I installed ffalarms and love it, but the wakeup from suspend doesn't
work... I use FSO 5 and the ffalarms 0.2.1 and atd-over-fso with python
2.6 package.
Is there anything to configure, so that it might work?
(At least my phone doesn't goes to sleep by itself, so thats no issue...
but that's another problem with fso5 :D).
