Somebody in the thread at some point said:
|     What does that actually mean, both "gone" (what appears on host dmesg
|     when you plug it in) and "Glamo doesn't seem installed by default"...
|     you mean XGlamo?
| Yes, XGlamo doesn't seem to be used (the one provided by
| xserver-kdrive-glamo IIRC) since its slower than the release version and
| the 'loading' spinwheel is not there, the dropdown sliding animation is
| stuttered, etc.

I know nothing about that side of stuff, sorry.

| As for USB networking, its gone in the sense I get a usb0 on my ubuntu
| machine, but pinging the Freerunner gives me 'destination host
| unreachable'. Here's the dmesg output

That's what I call USB networking being there from my POV :-)  There is
some routing or IP allocation issue on Freerunner side that I read other
people mention seeing that would match this.

| [98557.649357] usb 4-1: new full speed USB device using uhci_hcd and
| address 18
| [98557.912376] usb 4-1: configuration #1 chosen from 2 choices
| [98557.922447] usb0: register 'cdc_ether' at usb-0000:00:1d.3-1, CDC
| Ethernet Device, 4a:8b:b5:17:5a:4b
| Please note that the same networking setup was working fine 2 hours back
| with the 2008.8 releae build.

Is there some way you can do

ifconfig usb0
route -n

on the Freerunner?

|     Did you update the kernel at the same time as the rootfs image?
| Yup! Took the kernel and the rootfs jffs2 file from
| http://buildhost.openmoko.org/daily/freerunner/200808/20080811/

Fine -- I don't think the issue comes from that direction if you have
usb0 up on your host.  I guess it is somehow network interface config issue.
