Oz 3.5.4.1 Beta 2 Questions
« on: April 17, 2006, 12:04:08 am »
I have a few issues I'm trying to resolve with OZ 3.5.4.1 Beta2 and I thought I would post them here incase they aren't bugs and I'm just need to do somethign to make them work, etc. If they are bugs I'll be happy to report them.
-Audio through the headphone jack doesn't seem to work. When I plug in headphones I hear nothing in the headphones and I still hear audio through the external speaker. Do I need to adjust something?
   -From searching I found this: OE Forum but it's not too helpful.
-Adjusting the volume from the applet does not adjust the volume.
-How do you close the "Audio Mixer" cleanly? I've been closing it by killing the process.
-Plugging in a USB mouse and USB keyboard (from what I see) does not work even though "dmesg" says it installs a driver. I read something in the forums about a USB driver that is needed, but dmsg says it installs a driver, so I'm confused. Sorry.
-Installing applications using the pakage manage does not alwyas work but installing it via commandline ipkg install packagename works. I tried to duplicate the problem so I could give you the error message, but it behaved itself then I tied.   Go figure.
-What do OZ/GPE users us to read PDF's? Searching the fourm/feed hasn't helped me.
-What do OZ/GPE users use to read comic books?
-Has anyone successfully setup the proper timezone  in 3.5.4.1?
-I appreciate the work put into making gpe-minibrowser availalble, but I find I have to shut it down and restart it avery 4 min because it ends up using all my RAM and gets really slow. Is Dillo available for OZ? ( Sorry for sounding like a pdaXrom fanboy  )
-What is the poper method for configuring OZ to use a Swap partition on an SD card?

Thanks for your patience. I promise to be more of an asset and less of a hindrance soon.

try using alsamixer from the command line. I have been having problems with sound also.  the 'm' key umutes so if you see an 'm' that option is mutted '00' means its not muted.

you can use either evince or xpdf.

-What do OZ/GPE users use to read comic books?
Not sure what format they are in, there is a reader (fbreader in the upgrades feed)

-Has anyone successfully setup the proper timezone  in 3.5.4.1?

I found linking Melbourne in the australia-timezones packages with /etc/localtime then using
ntpdate time.apple.com to update the time works but then on reeboot you need to update the time again.

In one of the origonal oz releaces 3.5.2? adding more timezones would add them to the gui. This does not happen any more. I don't know why it's now broken, but it is:(.  So this is a work around.

I use gpdf. Not tested extensively, but seems to work fine.

-Has anyone successfully setup the proper timezone  in 3.5.4.1?
Just setting it in the time applet seems to have worked for me (CST, since we're both in the same one ). I also have TZ=CST+6CDT in both my own user & root's ~/.profile files. I'd put that there to support some scripts I run; maybe that's why I don't have problems? Don't know.

I use dillo2 as well. There's some things I liike about gpe-mini-browser, but until the anchor problem is fixed, won't be my only browser.

This is what I do. Probably not the right way, but hey, it works for me . I have the attached script saved under /etc/init.d/swapon.sh & the following symlinks:

Code: [Select]
grog@grond[pts/1][~]$ find /etc/ -type l -name \*swapon\* -ls
  4945    0 lrwxrwxrwx   1 root     root           19 Apr  2 20:19 /etc/rc0.d/K15swapon.sh -> ../init.d/swapon.sh
  4946    0 lrwxrwxrwx   1 root     root           19 Apr  2 20:19 /etc/rc1.d/K15swapon.sh -> ../init.d/swapon.sh
  4948    0 lrwxrwxrwx   1 root     root           19 Apr  2 20:19 /etc/rc5.d/S30swapon.sh -> ../init.d/swapon.sh
  4947    0 lrwxrwxrwx   1 root     root           19 Apr  2 20:19 /etc/rc6.d/K15swapon.sh -> ../init.d/swapon.sh

Like I said, works for me. HTH

Why not add the swap partition to /etc/fstab like on your desktop? That seems to work fine over here.

The last time I tried that (oz/opie 3.5.3) the fstab wasn't being recognized, so that's why I came up with the script. I'll try it again & see what happens. thks

Oops, I got them both from the koen feed but not that feed does not exist:(

I notice evince is in embedded so I'll ask hrw to build it.

In the meantime try this ipk:

[a href=\"http://darmou.freeshell.org/evince_0.3.2-r1_arm.ipk]http://darmou.freeshell.org/evince_0.3.2-r1_arm.ipk[/url]

My openembedded setup is somewhat borked atm.
