The current FDOM image - you mean FDOM 20081023? I don't know about
that (because it had so many problems and bugs, that I flashed back to
FDOM 20080927 right after trying 20081023), but in FDOM 20080927 it
was easy to get GPRS working. I followed the instructions here -
http://www.teaparty.net/technotes/openmoko-2.html#GPRS . FDOM already
has gsm0710muxd installed, so you have to start from where it says:
"The files needed are ...". I just copied these files to my phone,
changed "mobile.o2.co.uk" in chat-gprs file to my GPRS providers
address and started the connection with ./pppd-start and later killed
the connection with "killall -15 pppd". Probably you can install some
GUI too, but I didn't think it is nessecary. If you don't want to
start it from command line, just make two .desktop files - one for
pppd-start and one for "killall -15 pppd".
