Over the last year, I've done various things to my Tosa to make it work better with beta1. The real annoyance comes at those times when I decide that I need to wipe everything out and do a clean install. It is at these times that I think, "Man! Wouldn;t it be nice if I had an ipk with all my additional changes already on it?"

So here is my proposal:

Give me your suggestions for what tidbits you would like to see included in the sp1.ipk and I'll do my best to incorporate them.

Here's what I've put in so far, and please note that I am Tosa-centric, so I don't know if these fixes apply to other models running beta1.

1. lightnpower.py fixed. Original version calls setfl with values 1-6 instead of 0-5, resulting in not being able to turn off the backlight.

2. Modified Key Mappings for brackets, braces, and backticks.

3. Correct Up/Down/Left/Right pad control after screen rotation. (in progress, since I lost the original fix)

4. Rotate CW/CCW for lefties and righties. (in progress, see above)

5. The SD fix.

6. Missing Libstdc++.so.5

I'm also considering puting in a few apps that are useful, but seldom used due to the difficulty in getting them installed, like kismet, and x11vnc.
