Hi All,

(C860, 1Gb SD, Symbol24 Wifi CF)

OK, I'm doing a 'rom' tryout, and have now setup OZ Opie and GPE to run at the same time on VT2 and VT3. Also edited the relevant files so pressing <ctrl><alt>#num on any VT will change VT's fine. Oh, and switched / and ,.
The only thing I needed to do to really get this to work different from the wiki is to chmod u+s /usr/bin/chvt as chvt needs to run with root privs.
Oh, I also did it from the GPE image and then installing the Opie packages. The other way just seemed not to work well for me and indeed its interesting the number of differences the two ways gives (ie, /etc/ipkg/* versus /etc/ipkg.conf is one example).

Now I realise Opie/GPE is not a supported option, fair enough so I'm looking for what people who HAVE got it running did. Maybe some tricks and tips etc. I almost think that bar running qt4 under X instead, having a dual image would be useful, though installing it was fairly easy anyway.

My questions: -
- I've had to disabled ALL idle suspends etc under both GPE and Opie. Is there anyway that the idle checker can determine if there is activity on another VT? Currently if they are enabled, then if say I'm in GPE, and Opie suddenly realises there is no activty on it for 5 minutes, it suspends.

- Feeds. ipkg is really really REALLY slow. I think because of the base feed. However I can live with this. My issue is knowing if a package is opie or GPE when installing. Currently I comment out the opie feed, update then install when wanting to install a GPE app, and vice versa for opie. (IE, kopi is a good example). My question I guess is, are there any collisions of names between the feeds (the official OZ ones, not 3rd party).

- I have set my sd to be default install (after installing most OPIE and GPE apps to root first). However I have one of those annoying SD cards that comes up with Input/Output error frequently if under usage (even mounted sync). I solved this by forcing a sync every 1 second when installing packages and hopefully will get another card one day. When I restart, the SD card is never automatically checked, and I can't unmount it as its always in use now (applets running etc...). Any proper way of getting round this? I've updated the insert scripts so when an SD/CF is inserted, it runs a filesystem check on it, then plays a 'sound' when its done.



Oh and finally, why gpe-bootsplash? I always just remove this because I like to see whats happening. Why cover up nice the really nice main splash screen with the whiteout splash of GPE (though I now see that the boot messages come up through it, which is an improvement).

EDIT: Excuse typos. I've just had a daughter and am very sleep deprived (and hence why I have the time to reflash ;-)
