I have had my FreeRunner a couple of days,
I would appreciate some tips on navigating
(on it...and with it :-).

I found my way to usb networking,
so I can ssh to root at mok without password
(from my home Ubuntu pc, which is secure ;-)

instructions for tango appear obsolete, since
they mention gpsd and other docs list gpsd as obsolete.

In any case, the first step seems to be
   opkg update
which fails (small bug, it reports failure to verify
signature, when the failure was finding the tarball)

It looks like the download tree on openmoko.org has moved,
but I'm not sure exactly where to.   Just changing "buildhost" to
"downloads" didn't do the trick.

uname says:
Linux om-gta02 2.6.24 #1 PREEMPT Thu Apr 24 08:23:36 CST 2008 armv4tl unknown

root at om-gta02:/etc/opkg# cat all-feed.conf
src/gz daily-all http://buildhost.openmoko.org/daily-feed/all

(downloads.openmoko.org/daily-feed does not exist)

Any help is appreciated.

Hopefully a solution to my questions doesn't require deciding
what I want to do with it....because I want to do everything with it.

(make calls, manage servers at work, find my way home :-)

PS usb networking from ubuntu to Freerunner keeps getting dropped.
I'm suspecting freerunner, but it could be either.
bringing up usb0 again fixes it.
