i have uploaded new stable QtMoko debian images .
QtMoko is stable distribution based on Qtopia (or QtExtended). For more info
check our homepage.
This new version is mainly bug fix release. Changes from previous version
- fixed power management to correctly detect cable
- fixed GPS power up script (NeronGPS now works just fine again)
- workaround for the GSM (restart not needed now)
- added omhacks for controlling Neo hardware from command line
- new application Neocontrol for controlling Neo sysfs and other tasks
- implemented power management for locked/unlocked screen
- build fixes and code improvements (Bartlomiej Zimon)
As for the fixes: first two are quite clear. The problem with GSM not
registering can be partially solved by putting sleep after we power the modem
on. GSM registering now failed for me only first time after flashing. Then i
tried many times and haven't hit the problem again so let's hope it's fixed
now. Anyway 2.6.32 does not have this problem - so 2.6.32 is long term
Omhacks  is great for various low level openmoko setting. It's from Debian
and credits to it's authors. I will slowly migrate everything to use it's API.
Neocontrol is work in progress application. Most of the functionality is not
implemented yet. The switching to QVGA is only experimental and it will most
probably not work for you. Watching the sysfs is on the other hand working and
I have also implemented power management for locked/unlocked screen. If you
set intervals to 0 in "When locked" mode - it will not be used and Qtmoko will
use suspend intervals based on power source. This feature is still quite
experiment and i think sometimes it does now properly.
As for upgrading to new version: the kernel, rootfs and all except /opt is the
same. You can just grab qtmoko-update-v22.tar.gz, stop Qtopia and unpack it.
ssh root at 192.168.0.202
tar xzvpf qtmoko-update-v22.tar.gz
Btw please check MD5SUMs:
Plans for next version remain the same except that i have now GTA01 device
(thanks to Pavel Machek), so if all goes right i will release also gta01
Hope you'll like this new version
