Hi

Is it possible to switch off the LCD whilst listening to music using OZ/GPE? There was an applet thing for the Sharp roms using Qtopia, but I can't find anything for GPE, does anything exist?

thanks
Rich

What machine are you using (and if it's a clamshell, what version of the kernel?)?

FYI the applets should work with the compat libs.

GPE has a screen off timeout afaik, but you need my version of bl from http://people.bath.ac.uk/enpsgp/Zaurus/bl/

Download the ipk file and extract the bl binary from it (as ipkg won't accept the arm5 arch) and stick that binary in /usr/bin.

You can then issue 'bl off', 'bl on', 'bl x' where x is from 0-255.

This will also allow the ipaq-sleep daemon to control the backlight settings.

Lardman your binary does not work on a collie. You need to use the slbl program instead.

Basic usage:
slbl 0 (off) through to slbl 4 (very bright)

It is part of the slutils console package for openzaurus.

My binary should work on the collie, it's been tested.

What was the error message?

collie:/media/card/home/root> # ./bl
on 25
Illegal instruction

using 1 as a parameter:

collie:/media/card/home/root> # ./bl 1
Illegal instruction

Hope this helps,

someone built it for armv5 probably...

lardman: qtopia applets/inputmethods will not work even with sharp-compat-libs.

Indeed I did, but I'd heard that it ran okay on the collies.

I'll build a new version for arm4 (or if you have OE you can do it yourself - build bl-0.0 (not cvs))
