Again on the 605... three little beeps, a pause, and three little beeps again, right? It does that for the whole minute that the alarm has been set to. It was as simple as opening up the clock, going to alarm, and setting a time like the first fella had said. How are you doing this? Via headphones ...

Re: 604/5 boot seqence oddities

The only explanation I can come up with is that, before the `proper' root filesystem is mounted and the normal boot begins, something in the firmware checks the cryto signature in optfs.cramfs.secure and, if it is bad, deletes or moves the whole file. I just can't see any other way that the mount c...

[numbers] root a lot of things... 2382 nobody dd if=/dev/urandom of=/dev/dsp bs=100000 count=1 2383 nobody ps So i thought the id would be 2382. Kevin meant you should look for the qpe process! So when doing "ps" you should spot qpe somewhere in the list of processes. I tried ls -l /dev/2382/fd but...

Wouldn't that be a suggestion for yourself as well? Imagine: no more reboots instead of clean resumes, perhaps even sound output on the 605 in Qtopia... :o)

Well looking for the ruling is easier said than done, France brought the ruling in first and im positive that it then become a european ruling So you admit that there is no European ruling that demands that volume of portable devices has to be lowered?

I am, regrettably, aware of sales lost to Archos in favour of Cowon _just_ on this volume issue. It doesn't bother me, because I have a headphone amp. But clearly it bothers some people. Thinking about the technical side of things, it shouldn't be impossible to add headphone calibration to a portab...

That was the first question I asked Bubu about it. He didn't know either and simply assumes that it will have some bugfixes as compared to 2.1.x which, I think, is a valid assumption. The big shot will be making qtopia 4.2 work on the devices...

My recollection is that the Qtopia env itself doesn't actually use the Menu key for anything, so you don't notice this problem until you start porting other apps which do. I can't help thinking that it would be better, in general, if the Menu key generated Key_Menu -- since in practice we're going ...

Sorry if I wasn't clear -- by the circle I mean that round thing with arrows on on the other side of the menu rocker. I don't know if it has an official name. Ok, in (my?) 605 this key has three squares on it, a dark one sandwiched between two light ones which appear to symbolise tabs. I would gues...

There is a heap of EU legislation regarding the safety of consumer goods. I don't of anything in particular, but I would be all that surprised if there were specific requirements relating to sound pressure levels. The limitation in the Archos units might be technical; but having listened to the ear...

Re: qtopia key mapping

Obviously, it makes sense for the up/down, etc., keys to be mapped on Qt::Key_Up, Qt::Key_Down, etc. We should take care that these keys will be rotated when qtopia is, i.e. that the left/right toggle becomes up/down a.s.o. Personally, I think the rotated view of Qtopia should be the default on the...

Re: ARM Hypervisors

ARM simply doesn't have a hypervisor. WRONG. Well, I'd be much surprised to learn that the ARM9 has a hypervisor mode. I have done a lot of assembly hacking on the ARM9 and I'm pretty sure there is none. If there are software hacks to make the supervisor run more than one operating system in superv...

It's not a question of computing power. ARM simply doesn't have a hypervisor.
