    Buetooth DUN vs. suspend

    In the recent days, I've been using an Android (Cyanogenmod 12.1) phone with bluetooth tethering as kind of an external 5GHz wifi card. This works quite well out of the box - when Pandora and phone are paired, Network Manager sees the PANU connection, and Android seems to do masquerading and DNS...

    screen lock?

    Not strictly a system thing, but since xlock is usually supplied with X11 - I'm looking for a simple tool that locks my Pandoras' screen after suspend or an inactivity timeout - but there' nothing in the opkg packages, and nothing in the repo. Is there really nothing like that on the Pandora?

    making use of the touchpad on a bluetooth keyboard?

    So I have this bluetooth keyboard with touchpad that I bought to use with a tablet. Why not connect it to the Pandora? Surprisingly, this mostly works - using slaeshjag's kblayout pnd, I can switch to a standard german keyboard layout (will need some minor adjustments to be perfect, and I have...

    Pandora missing dev packages in Pandora feed?

    I've been trying to update one of the descriptions on how to install development tools to the Pandora from the wiki: http://pandorawiki.org/Compile_directly_on_the_Pandora#Using_Angstrom_packages Some of the problems (the one with libpng, for example) don't exist anymore - but it seems that a...

    Pandora pkg-config strangeness (codeblocks PND)

    Ok, so I'm somewhat stumped currently, as pkg-config from /mnt/utmp/codeblocks/usr/bin/pkg-config produces broken info... I have (for example) a .pc file with the following content: prefix=/mnt/utmp/codeblocks/home/src/vlc-2.0.5/contrib/native exec_prefix=${prefix} libdir=${exec_prefix}/lib...

    Release VLC 2.0.5

    http://repo.openpandora.org/?page=detail&app=vlc2-2QDG [edit] updated for release 2 After removing the pkg-config wrapper from codeblocks, VLC builds much more cleanly. I had to touch mabe half a dozen of the rules.mak files in contrib/src with minor fixes. Main change in this release is that...

    VLC 2 vs. alsa & SDL

    In the past couple of days, I've been dabbling with a build of the VLC 2.0.5 sources (which is terribly botched for an environment like cdevtools, where things are not where they usually are). I now have a working binary, but it's not really better in any way than the existing VLC 1.x on the...

    dragonbox shop vs. opera mobile

    Just FYI, ED: Today I tried to load www.dragonbox.de from my phone with the Opera Mobile browser, and got a "Sie können aus Ihrem Land nicht auf unseren Shop zugreifen." - message. Not shure if that's intentional? (Opera Mobile uses Opera's proxy systems by default, no idea where those are located.)

    bluetooth - using GSM via mobile phone?

    The combination of bluez, Network Manager, and Modem Manager on the Pandora obviously can't be used to access the GSM modem on a mobile phone. Is this supposed to work, or does anyone know what's missing? The functionality and drivers are there in principle - I've managed to get a working UMTS...

    ./pandora directory locations

    I know this is not the normal use case, but I've set up a bootable SD card with the pandora OS and several filesystems in the traditional UNIX way (root, /usr/local, /home, /var). Now the system doesn't find any pnds that I have stored in the directory tree under /usr/local/pandora. Then I...

    Raspberry hit by manufacturing error

    Seems like the Pandora guys are not alone with their learning experience... http://www.raspberrypi.org/archives/781 I assume that "[..] because of a hardware parts substitution that was made in the factory by accident" is worded rather cautious, and in reality the manufacturer was trying to...

    Pandora PNDing shell applications

    Is there any standard to bundling up shell applications? Let's say I have something like ImageMagick or the commandline tools from the wireshark distribution that I usually want to call from a shell or from scripts. I've seen what the Java PND does (installing a small wrapper that uses...

    anyone at 28c3?

    Are any current or prospective Pandora owners at the 28th Chaos Communication Congress in Berlin right now? If so, we could meet up somewhere... Not seen anyone else wielding the device yet (just people with tablets, smartphones, netbooks, and laptops), but have been asked by a couple of...

    on running Firefox for a day...

    Yesterday, I was at a conference, and used my Pandora a whole day for the first time (uptime in the end was about 9 hours, with maybe 6 hours out of standby, and a nick below 20% battery left). Now I'm probably not a typical user, because I was just using two applications - a Terminal (with...

    USB woes

    I'm having problems with USB devices, especially USB-serial (RS232) adapters connected through a hub: They disappear every couple of minutes, and then I get a new ttyUSBx - device. Tried several hubs (powered and unpowered), and several adapters with different chipsets. One of them uses the...
