A face in the machine?

11 years ago, mid-November | 2 Comments

Some people have been seeing things. Faces. Faces in their Neo’s. Don’t worry, it’s not your imagination it’s me, and I mean that literally, peering at you from under the clock. It’s not some vanity thing, it simply means you’re running one of my builds and allows you to quickly identify that fact.

If you ssh into your Neo and you are running one of my builds, then you will also find a file called

/etc/release

with the release date and time of the image, for example

ScaredyCat release qtopia-image-200711181035

The file appears in both my Qtopia and ScaredyCat builds but, as always, the standard Openmoko builds I do are unaltered so do not contain anything other than what is normally there – at this point that’s nothing, but may change in the future.

If you want to change the picture it’s a fairly simple procedure, either replace the file

/usr/share/pixmaps/wallpaper.png

with the file you want or change the gconf entry

/desktop/poky/interface/wallpaper

and make it point to the file you want to use. For example,

gconftool-2 –config-source=xml::/etc/gconf/gconf.xml.defaults –direct –type string –set /desktop/poky/interface/wallpaper /media/card/mypicture.png

You will need to restart the Openmoko-Today application which, for most people, will mean a reboot of ther Neo.

Openmoko buildhost down…

11 years ago, mid-October | Leave a Comment

Since August 8th, 2007 I’ve been making rootfs, kernel images and package updates for the gta01 available via my buildhost. It seems that the official Openmoko buildhost has been down for a while due to RAM issues and it looks like I’ve, hopefully, been able to help out in that respect. Take a look at the graph below

My Buildhost stats

showing the download bandwidth used, in MB for my buildhost. It’s worth noting that the figures for October are to the end of yesterday, whereas August and September are for the entire months.

The last time something like this happened was when I released the very first asterisk live cd although my guide did dramatically increase my hit rate 😀 – incidentally you can get PXE boot and CF card booting editions from the same page as the live cd.
