OpenGL Ambient Lighting

 I'm getting some strange results when enabling ambient lights in
openGL. After some experiments, I determined that for some reason, the
ambient light color is multiplied by 0.2f. That is, setting an ambient
light of color ( 5.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f, 1.0f ) is needed to get a pure red
ambient, not the expected ( 1.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f, 1.0f ), which yields a
dark red ambient.

I even tried setting the ambient light model :

        float full[] = { 1.0f, 1.0f, 1.0f, 1.0f };
        gl.glLightModelfv(GL10.GL_LIGHT_MODEL_AMBIENT, full, 0);

But that makes no difference.

Note that the diffuse component does not suffer from this 0.2f factor,
only the ambient.

Notice that all the default values in openGL for ambient-related stuff
is 0.2f, so I don't think this is a coincidence. Is there another
openGL function I should be calling to set a global factor ?

2. Very Slow SDcard IO on Froyo emulator on a 64 bit Ubuntu machine


I am running some tests on a Froyo emulator on a Ubuntu 64 bit
The adb push on to sd card on emulator is very slow when compared to a
32bit machine.

I tried running some file write tests and observed the following:
-In comparison to 32 bit machines the file writes in 64 bit machine
are very slow when the target file is on sdcard.
-On 64 bit Machine when the target file is in Internal memory the file
write is much faster when compared to a scenario where target file is
on sdcard (about 40% faster)
 - Repeated writes on sdcard degrade the performance even further (eg
For same file write first time the time taken is 42secs the next time
its 48secs )

Please share If anyone has found any similar issue or if there is any
known patch for it .
