I prepared a slightly better thing hastily.

livedroid update alpha2.

  * CD remaster ready
  * add mouse patch
  * add 32bit color patch
  * fixed GRUB menu title
  * fixed ISO label name
  * cupcake based, kernel 2.6.25

Please test it and send me some advices.

 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.

 Hi, all

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. Error on SharedPreferences for AppWidget

Hi.

I'm working on an AppWidget which manages settings using
SharedPreferences. I'm experiencing a strange behaviour (on a Dream)
on its configuration Activity:

1)  if I use software keyboard (that is: without opening physical
keyboard) to edit text, everything works fine and preferences are
stored. The happens if the application starts with keyboard already
open.

2) if I open physical keyboard (and activity is being restarted and
rendered in landscape), when saving preferences the widget does not
appear on the desktop. Sometimes I get an error message ("unable to
unlink" to the path of application's data).

It seems that, when restarted on keyboard open, the configuration
Activity looses ownership of its sharedpreferences.

Any idea?

Thank you.

Ciao,
Stefano.

2. Bug report: widget does not load if the orientation changes during the configuration

Thanks for catching this--it's a known issue and an engineer has been
assigned to it.  :)  There really isn't a good workaround in 1.5,
other than forcing the configuration activity into portrait mode or
asking users to rotate before returning.
