 Hi, I'm interested in your livedroid project, but I cannot very understand
your introductions.
What do you mean by saying "based on Debian lenny"? Have you port the
android base system to the kernel based on Debian?

At last, thanks for your great job!

 Hi,

Thank you for your interest in my project !

After starting as a minimal Debian system,
livedroid execute chroot to the environment of Android.
I merged the configuration of Android to kernel configuration of Debian.

If you intercept boot process of livedroid, you can use debian system.
Of course, you use the command of bootcd2disk,
livedroid can be installed on the hard drive.
That is pure debian system.
You can use apt-get and more.
If you want to make CD image form your customized hard drive,
you can do makeiso.sh command.

Over 5000 people downloaded alpha2 iso file.
I was surprised at the size of the reaction very much.

livedroid update alpha3.

  * shrink image size
  * add isolinux menu
  * add ASE (but no language files, English mode only)
  * add Japanese boot mode (but not include IME)
  * add /sdcard support (tmpfs)

Please test it and send me some advices.

1. "Finish" Activity from Dialog... Not finishing

Hi,

I've got an application with one main activity, and I've got an error
dialog with a "ok" button on it, that when pressed calls "finish" on
the activity.  It seems to work fine when I test the app manually, but
when I run the "monkey" tool, it is somehow killing my dialog by
pressing 'Ok', but not finishing the app.

All my dialogs are managed by the activity, and here's my dialog
setup:

                case ERROR_DIALOG_ID:
                    Log.d("ErrorDialog", "Error Shown.");
                    errorDialogShown = true;
                        final Activity instance = this;
                        return new AlertDialog.Builder(this)
                                .setMessage(error)
                                .setCancelable(false)
                                .setPositiveButton(getText(R.string.ok), new
DialogInterface.OnClickListener() {
                           public void onClick(DialogInterface dialog, int id) {
                                    Log.d("ErrorDialog", "OK clicked.");
                                instance.finish();
                                    Log.d("ErrorDialog", "Finished.");
                           }
                                })
                                .create();

And here's my log output:

I/ActivityManager(  572): Starting activity: Intent
{ action=android.intent.action.MAIN categories=
{android.intent.category.LAUNCHER} flags=0x10000000 comp={XXX} }
D/onCreateDialog(  841): Showing progress dialog.
D/GpsLocationProvider(  572): setMinTime 0
W/KeyCharacterMap(  841): No keyboard for id 0
W/KeyCharacterMap(  841): Using default keymap: /system/usr/keychars/
qwerty.kcm.bin
D/progressDialog(  841): Try last loc clicked.
D/LocationManager(  841): removeUpdates: listener = x...@43753f58
D/ErrorDialog(  841): Error Shown.
I/ActivityManager(  572): Displayed activity XXX: 4993 ms
D/ErrorDialog(  841): OK clicked.
D/ErrorDialog(  841): Finished.
W/IInputConnectionWrapper(  678): showStatusIcon on inactive
InputConnection
I/AndroidRuntime(  876): AndroidRuntime onExit calling exit(0)
D/dalvikvm(  678): GC freed 1453 objects / 41216 bytes in 117ms

And the activity never dies--in other words, it's remaining visible to
the user.  It's like the dialog was dismissed, and that was it.  When
I hit the back button on the device, it'll destroy the instance.

Any ideas on what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks,
-Shemmy

2. How to rename an application's private file?

I can create, delete and read/write files using Context.deleteFile(),
Context.openFileOutput(), Context.openFileInput. However there appears
to be no way to rename a file. The reason I want to do this is because
I have a routine that rewrites a data file when things change. Since
it creates it from scratch, I first delete the old one, then write the
new one. But I don't want everything to be lost in the off chance that
there is an IOException. Ideally, I would write the new file to a temp
name, then once it was successful delete the old one and rename the
new one to the original name. But with no rename functionality, this
seems to be impossible.
