229CoreBug ReportHighEnable wake on alarm interrupts Unconfirmed
Task Description Found I'd kept some notes about making the Pandora's wake on alarm function work... drivers/rtc/rtc-twl4030.c twl4030_rtc_remove (for when the driver is removed) and twl4030_rtc_ shutdown (for when the system is shutdown) functions need to change. Or at least the shut down does. oh YUK who's been using goto.... changes in drivers/rtc/rtc-twl4030.c twl4030_rtc_remove commented out //mask_rtc_irq_bit(BIT_RTC_INTERRUPTS_REG_IT_ALARM_M); twl4030_rtc_shutdown replaced // mask_rtc_irq_bit(BIT_RTC_INTERRUPTS_REG_IT_TIMER_M | // BIT_RTC_INTERRUPTS_REG_IT_ALARM_M); with mask_rtc_irq_bit(BIT_RTC_INTERRUPTS_REG_IT_TIMER_M); twl4030_rtc_suspend replaced // mask_rtc_irq_bit(BIT_RTC_INTERRUPTS_REG_IT_TIMER_M | // BIT_RTC_INTERRUPTS_REG_IT_ALARM_M); with mask_rtc_irq_bit(BIT_RTC_INTERRUPTS_REG_IT_TIMER_M); twl4030_rtc_init added (before return!) twl4030_rtc_alarm_irq_set_state(true); Should probably check reg 0x2B with mask 0x08 to see if alarm should be left enabled or not ? but only in twl4030_rtc_shutdown and ?remove? NOT in twl4030_rtc_init should remove ever happen ??? I'm guessing it's best to not enable the alarm irq's all the time???
227CoreBug ReportLowDelete button won't delete, and function lock doesn't w...Unconfirmed
Task Description If you hit the function button, then hit it again to lock the function keys, it doesn't lock the function key. The delete key, hold shift and hit the back space button, it won't delete, meaning it won't remove the character to the right of the cursor. I saw this on the forum, and confirmed it on my pandora also.
225CoreBug ReportMediumads7846 reports odd pressure valuesUnconfirmed
Task Description using evdev xorg drivers and not the tslib drivers you can receive pressure axis data however there is a problem with the values reported by the ads7846 module and the evdev driver has no calibration property for pressure using xinput test touchscreen you can see the pressure axis ranging from 120-ish for hard press to about 150-170 for light press (low pressure values can be quite erratic) I could possibly hack the evdev module to possibly do something with this odd and narrow range of values, but I rather think looking at the source that the ads7846 module needs some work. is there a git tag that has a known working configuration? as I've had problems getting the kernel to compile the last few times I attempted...
223CoreBug kills gles contextUnconfirmed
Task Description opengles and don't like each other very much. whenever returning from low power to full power mode again, opengles rendering is just dead. the reason for this issue are following 2 lines within 18 echo 0 > /sys/devices/platform/omapfb/graphics/fb0/blank ... 66 echo 1 > /sys/devices/platform/omapfb/graphics/fb0/blank if these lines are removed/commented, the gles rendering just resumes fine.
222ApplicationBug ReportLowLogin Screen does not accept all symbols of the form Fn...Unconfirmed
Task Description Problem - Login Screen does not accept all symbols of the form Fn+char Reproducibility - always Actual results - the characters :?#|$€"‘£¥@!_ do not work on the Login Screen with the Pandora's keyboard. When fn then the corresponding character is pressed, nothing is added to the string. Expected results - these characters should appear just like any other character Work Around - an external keyboard was able to enter these characters Aditional Information - While the characters :?#|$€"‘£¥@!_ do not work, the characters ;/\'-+=`() work just fine.

Task Description That still need to be configurable, but chris_c does a good job I'ld like to see integraded in the main image : and :
204CoreBug ReportMediumfonts issuesUnconfirmed
Task Description Ok, I just want to say that there is something missing about the font on the base image. I cant get what (at least for now) Here is an issue : With my current Ogre build I get : Warning: Unable to load any usable ISO8859 font Error: Aborting: no font found I've googled but so far no solution :(
190CoreBug ReportMediumRemoving desktop-shortkeys does not workUnconfirmed
Task Description Try clearing shortcuts in Start->Settings->Window Manager->Keyboard. That doesn't work (for me). This is a problem because these shortcuts are blocking key-combination in apps, like for example the keymapper in dosbox (CTRL+F1) or refreshing content (CTRL+F5). I tried manual editing or even deleting the configuration file, but changes are not recognized and the file recreated on reboot.
185CoreBug ReportLowXorg driver should not be dependant on user environmentUnconfirmed
Task Description The patch implementing screen blanking uses the /usr/pandora/scripts/ script to control LCD backlit:;a=blob;f=recipes/xorg-driver/xf86-video-omapfb/pandora_backlight_dim.patch;h=4a0b8432d083c6e7297192a2920c7a777ae3d098;hb=16f3fff44323bd6b4349d909667b51a2fef3f278 The same result can be achieved by using the sys interface: /sys/devices/platform/twl4030-pwm0-bl/backlight/twl4030-pwm0-bl/bl_power This approach makes driver independent on particular distribution. The proposed patch is attached.
179CoreBug ReportLow.vimrc-preset for user but not for rootUnconfirmed
Task Description I am running PandoraOS from sd-card installed with the official tarball "pandora-rootfs.tar.bz2". I noticed that the control/keyboard-mapping in vi does not work correctly after switching to root (for example sudo su-). I solved this by copying over my users .vimrc to root-homedir. This should already be included in the tarball.
178CoreBug ReportLowMount-loop when booting from SD-cardUnconfirmed
Task Description When booting the pandora-OS from sd-card by using the official tar, you will end up with your sd-card being mounted twice: once as / and once as /media/. I solved this by adding "/dev/mmcblk0" to "/etc/udev/mount.blacklist". Maybe this should be added to the default tarball? I'm not sure as it might be used in other ways maybe (beside SD-card-installation)? Background: I ran "updatedb" as root and have been notified by a message that there was a mount-loop. After adding the above modification the system still booted fine and "updatedb" ran nicely without a warning.
159Base OSBug ReportMediumSystem > Run PND Application menu item does nothingUnconfirmed
Task Description With both Hotfix 3 and Hotfix 4 Beta the Run PND Application menu item fails to do anything. Possibly related problem is that PND files newly copied to SD card are not recognized and entered on desktop as expected. When you go to Thunar and right click - execute the PND file, nothing happens. Possible fix by copying the PND to another folder on the SD card with Thunar. This makes at least two PND files I had work. Still no response with "Run PND Application" menu, though.
158Base OSBug ReportMediumRefresh rate and BPPUnconfirmed
Task Description On OS Zaxon (hotfix 3). With "xfconf-query", the resolution is 800x480@60 Hz. But with the tool in the menu "Settings" -> "Display", the resolution is 800x480@0 Hz. With Java (opensdk-6-jre 6b18-1.8), GraphicsEnvironment.getLocalGraphicsEnvironment().getDefaultScreenDevice().getDisplayModes() return 1 display mode that is 800x480@0 Hz with a BPP of -1. It seems to be the reason that GraphicsEnvironment.getLocalGraphicsEnvironment().getDefaultScreenDevice().getDisplayMode() return null and when closing a java application that goes in fullscreen mode to throw an exception (invalid display mode).
156Base OSFeature RequestVery LowAsk to format SD CardUnconfirmed
Task Description When I have received my Pandora, I got an SD Card but it was not formated. I didn't have any card reader so I didn't now what was wrong (the Pandora or the SD Card). When an unformated SD Card is inserted in the Pandora, it should be nice to ask if we want to format it.
155CoreBug ReportMediumCritical problems after rescaling GLES2 X windowsUnconfirmed
Task Description When a X window which is displaying GLES2 render output is: - Either dragged out of the visibile screen region (?) - Is made larger than it was at the creation time of the GLES2 context then: - The performance will drop significantly as the EGL buffer swaps won't occur as fast as before, - The render output will be corrupted and flicker - In rare occasions crashes the application or locks up the entire system (which forces you to remove the battery) The problem can not be solved without restarting the application (Possibly forcing players to complete the same goals again as they were unable to reach a savepoint or similar things). This was confirmed in Mupen64Plus and the PowerVR GLES Samples and some of my own projects (which are, however, based on the PowerVR samples). As I didn't see any other reports about this problems (but had it confirmed by other Pandora users too) I would expect that it can be fixed by using a newer X, kernel or combination of them as other OMAP users would be effected too.

Task Description When the Pandora runs out of memory and the Out-Of-Memory killer fires, the Applications/Settings/xfce4/panel/panels.xml loses the entries for the menu button and the power monitor.
124Base OSBug ReportLowifup doesn't like dhclientUnconfirmed
Task Description I added: iface usb0 inet dhcp And ran: ifup usb0 But dhclient simply prints usage.
118Base OSFeature RequestLowadd sdl-perl to the base OSUnconfirmed
Task Description Hi there, Many games depend on sdl-perl. Perl and sdl are part of the base OS, but not not the connection between the two. Cheers, sebt3
110CoreBug ReportVery LowBattery percentage static in MiniMenuUnconfirmed
Task Description Battery remaining percentage in MiniMenu does not update unless you change tabs back and forth. This is only really an issue when leaving the unit charging and not using it. It gives the appearance that it is not charging until you swap tabs around.
106ApplicationFeature RequestVery LowAppData corruptionUnconfirmed
Task Description The appdata folder was corrupted on my SD card from an unclean eject this made the folder read only until i ran a repaired it. MiniMenu still displayed all my PND files. When clicking to launch the app would try to load crash and then return to MiniMenu without any visible error. This was pretty confusing and i thought it might be a good fix for a troubleshooting guide.

Task Description FAAD2 appears to not be compiled with fixed point decoding. My version of libfaad compiled with fixed point used 2-3x less cpu than the provided one. It's not enough to provide the switch to the configure script. the file libfaad/common.h has to be edited and a define uncommented. Line 68 in the v2.7 source. /* COMPILE TIME DEFINITIONS */ /* use double precision */ /* #define USE_DOUBLE_PRECISION */ /* use fixed point reals */ //#define FIXED_POINT
