Gemini PDA - Linux / apt update frozen on gemian kernel repo
« on: May 08, 2020, 07:36:41 am »
For me apt update froze while processing the http://gemian.thinkglobally.org/stretch/ gemini-linux-kernel-3.18-stretch repository:

root@gemini:/etc/apt/sources.list.d# apt update
Hit:1 http://security.debian.org/debian-security stretch/updates InRelease
Hit:4 http://ftp.debian.org/debian stretch-backports InRelease                                    
Ign:5 http://cdn-fastly.deb.debian.org/debian stretch InRelease                                  
Hit:6 http://cdn-fastly.deb.debian.org/debian stretch Release
0% [Working]^C            

For me this got solved by installing http-transport-https:

  apt install apt-transport-https

Maybe there is some new https redirect on the server.

Cosmo Communicator - Linux / Default Boot Partition

After completing the Linux install, how do you set the Cosmo default boot partition to DEBIAN_KDE?
I doubt this is possible. However, it should. Do we have the bootloader source somewhere?

Cosmo Communicator - Linux / compiling modules

I've compiled  with clang. But when loading the module I've got the same error.
Maybe in the future I will try to compile the kernel and modules with gcc.
Thank you so much again.
Have you tried to read the running kernels configuration (cat /proc|config.gz|gunzip>.config) and use this as a base for your kernel configuration? Another possible cause could be compiling from git head. Maybe there have been commits relevant for the module layout after the kernel has been built.

gemini@cosmopda:~$ cat /proc/version
Linux version 4.4.146 (nekit@supernova) (Android (4691093 based on r316199) clang version 6.0.2 (https://android.googlesource.com/toolchain/clang 183abd29fc496f55536e7d904e0abae47888fc7f) (https://android.googlesource.com/toolchain/llvm 34361f192e41ed6e4e8f9aca80a4ea7e9856f327) (based on LLVM 6.0.2svn)) #28 SMP PREEMPT Sat Jan 18 22:23:37 GMT 2020
gemini@cosmopda:~$


thank you.

OK, that's it. From your output, the kernel has been compiled using clang. So install a clang compiler as near as possible to clang version 6.0.2. Command line should be similar to the one I have been using for the Android modules: https://www.mygnu.de/2020/02/exfat-support-...o-communicator/

First I also have tried with gcc and got the same exec format error on Android.

Another aproach would be to compile kernel and modules with gcc. For the Gemini this involved a mkbootimg step ( @see: https://github.com/gemian/gemini-keyboard-a...rnelCompilation ) to get a bootable image. I don't know if this also  applies to the Cosmo and how to do it, yet.

Hi , I am trying to compile some modules from kernel ( available at github ) . But when I did the command : modprobe " some module" it gave me an error something about exec format. ( because the kernel module compiled  doesn't match the boot kernel ). I've also tried the kernel and kernel-headers  from repository ( using apt-get install )  but in this case the Fn key doesn't work and also no  module was loaded ( wifi also didn't work ). So what is the kernel source repository that matches the kernel boot ?
Note : I've tried all branches from the kernel available at github .
Thank you all.
Just guessing, had no time to try out the Linux image, yet.
Maybe the compiler does not match the one used to compile the kernel. Had the same problem when compiling android modules.

Which compiler did you use? gcc? What is the output of cat /proc/version ?
Just to be sure, what is the version of the kernel packages?

If I am right with my guess, either use the matching compiler, probably clang, or create an own boot image. (boot image and modules compiled with same compiler).

Cosmo Communicator - General Discussion / Poor battery life

What about just disabling the Amoledison app. Should solve the problem and it is not useful anyways.

hello@planetcom.co.uk has always gotten a fast response for me.

An update. I have been issued automatic refund by PayPal as PC did not respond to my dispute within prescribed time. Now I will be exporing other sources for the vary same cable including eBay.
I don't think there is any other source for the HDMI adapter.

Cosmo Communicator - Android / Broken settings search

I can't search my android settings on my Cosmo?
Whatever I search for yields no search results.
Does anyone else have this problem?
Yes, kill the settings app, i.e. from task switcher screen, long press to the app card then press the cross in the right upper corner. Afterwards the search will work. Already opened a bug with Panet Computers bug report sheet for this.

Unfortunately the reported bugs are not trackable, one not even gets a confirmation mail, so we can just wait what happens. Would be better if they used some real real bug tracker, i.e. bugzilla, where one can discuss the bugs and see if an issue already has been reported...

Thanks--after restart/shutdown the settings search is broken again for me--how about for you?
Right, it is exactly this way.

Battery Failure: I received my Gemini in May 2018, in November 2019 I noticed the battery had swelled and ordered a replacement from Planet Computers. It is now fourteen weeks later and I'm still waiting for my replacement battery. Does anyone know of an alternate supplier?

If you find a matching battery, probably with higher capacity, please post details here.

Cosmo Communicator - Android / Phone call auto rotation
« on: February 05, 2020, 12:22:54 pm »
With my Cosmo it seems the dual orientation microphone is not working. No matter how I am holding the Cosmo, it seems the speaker is always near to the flash and the microhone near to the fingerrprint reader.

Does anyone experience the same behaviour?

Am I missing some setting? Hardware defect? Not yet implemented?

Cosmo Communicator - Hardware / Rooting the Cosmo Communicator
« on: February 04, 2020, 08:16:54 pm »
Just being curious. What happens if we lock the bootloader again after rooting? Locked out?

What happens if we disable oem unlock afterwards?

Is there a way to install twrp without loosing the repartition tool recovery?

Why not just extracting the boot image with SP flash tool, modify it with magisk and reflash it with flash tool? That usually works like a charm on Mediatek devices, no unlocking bootloader, no recovery required. I have not tried it with the cosmo yet though.

Does this mean flashing (and booting) the rooted boot image with the flash tool works with locked bootloader? Always assumed the bootloader has to be unlocked or the image has to be signed somhow.

Hello oida,
my cosmo is broken  . Now i read here that it is possible to reflash it   .
Can you please tell me where i can get these SP flash tool?
And can i use the bin files from planets latest firmware page?

Many thanks

The downloadable firmware files are for the cover display ONLY. There are no Android images, yet. Assuming these will appear some day. If I remember correctly this also took some time for the Gemini.

Gemini PDA - Hardware / Gemini won’t charge

Are you sure that the battery is dead? It could be only deeply discharged, it could also be some other problem. If it is deeply discharged then usually keeping it plugged in for few hours will resolve it.
Not accepting any charge in case of a bad battery also sounds not very probable for me. In most cases one notices capacity loss first, and it is not that old, yet. I also have noticed some (rare, have not seen this for a long time) times the Gemini not charging despite of being plugged in. I would try anything else first. Replugging many times, rebooting, deleting cache (if on Android), etc. ..., before ordering a new battery.

Battery voltage might be below the charging circuits lower limit. Are you capable of measuring the battery voltage at the battery terminals?  

Btw. are you using the original charger? I have noticed with a Samsung tablet, that it won't start charging with my 3rd party charger when it is completely empty. With the original one then it worked.
