Is there a list anywhere of what those 12 Window managers are?

I see you have openbox as Window manager.

Do you use freamon's configuration (Warlock bar, panel, ...)

Could you add a symlink /usr/share/fonts/truetype/ pointing to /usr/share/fonts/TTF/ ? My applications (Systen Info, Microbes, Flashlight) are assuming that the default font Liberation is available in that dir (yes, I know, hardcoding paths is a bad idea, but it is easier than finding fonts in the orthodox way).

Hey, Linux-SWAT.
 
First of all, Happy New Year! Thanks for SL4P, I installed a couple of days ago and it's been a blast.

Anyway, I've been messing around with it and was wondering if I could ask your kind help with an issue I'm having.

The wifi only toggles on once. By that I mean that if I turn the WiFi on it works fine. If I turn it off, it turns off fine. But if I go to turn it on for a second time, then it never actually turns on. The little 'wifi is being enabled' notification starts up, and the wifi LED turns on, but NetworkManager certainly can't see any wireless card and so it can't connect to anything. If I reboot the Pandora, then I can once again turn wifi on.

Full disclaimer: I've messed around with this a lot and it's probably something I've done. I got confused with how sudo worked differently to how I'm used to (as you've mentioned in this thread), and I also had a permissions issue with my second SD card. Basically it means that I've messed around with the /etc/sudoers file, the /etc/group file and the /etc/fstab file. I found that any changes to the sudoers or group file broke the whole PND system (none of the PNDs would show up in the menu, and the PND that controls the wireless would fail with an error about the union filesystem not being mounted). Anyway, I reverted all the changes I made (I think), and I solved the permissions thing with fstab. It was after all this that I noticed the wireless issue.

I've got a bunch of dmesgs, pndrun logs and lsmods to share.

From when I first turn on the pandora, turn on the wifi, and everything works great:

dmesg:

Here's the logs for when I turn on the wifi the second time around and nothing works:

The missing filename parts in that last pndrun log seem to be the main points of interest, but I don't really know what to do with them :s

Thanks for any help you can give :)

Best wishes too ^^.

I'll check the wifi on/off issue. I almost never use wifi so i may have missed this.

Thanks for the report.

I notived some strange thing like that (Wifi LED on, but no connection) as well, so I am pretty sure it was the same problem. (Just posting this to say: it's most likely not because PaulForey messed something up but a real bug ^_^ )

Ok, got it. I've tweaked too much the init script.

As root, edit /usr/pandora/scripts/op_wifi.sh .

Change:


/sbin/rmmod board_omap3pandora_wifi wl1251_sdio wl1251 mac80211 cfg80211


into

Code:
/sbin/rmmod board_omap3pandora_wifi wl1251_sdio wl1251

I can confirm that this fix works.

Thanks for the help and the super-quick response. You'd have thought I was paying for this level of service :)

I really want to try slackware 14 on my pandora but downloading the image from the open pandora server is really slow for me.It would be great if  Linuxswat or somebody else who has already downloaded the final version could upload the file to "we transfer dot com" (just google it). it's really fast to upload/download things in there including big files. no registration required. only minus is that the file will be avaliable only for 2 days after being uploaded (we could use community re-uploads) but still this service is great. thanks in advance.

On my pc connected over wifi I get 100kb/s download speed (takes about 4-5 hours to complete) :(
