Change Android graphic display to directfb

by 鏀挎瘏 鏋 » Tue, 15 Jun 2010 15:48:57 GMT

 I've fixed up the Pthread of bionic C library to add some pthread
functions which directfb used.
The add-on pthread functions include pthread_cancle(),
pthread_testcancal(), pthread_rwlock_init()..... pthread_atfork()
And I've add the DirectFB-1.4.3 library with DFB-extra package source
in the external folder.
Please check it out and work together with me. The work is still
I've create this project on SourceForge.

Thank you.

1. Careful, Dell Streak 7 ignores manifest setting for Orientation

I have found tht when the Streak 7 goes to sleep, the last thing it
does is issue an onDestroy() followed by an onCreate() to my app and
then pauses the cpu shortly later. A look at logcat shows me that this
is caused by Dell deciding to change the orientation before going to
sleep, apparently so that it wakes up in the landscape mode by
default. I have orientation fixed to portrait in my activities, but
the Streak is ignoring this.
Thought others might want to be aware of this.
If anyone has a way to over ride this, let me know. I tried Overriding
onConfigurationChange, but it is not being called when this happens.


2. Ask the urgent problem of the project: call number for do not know why not?

Dear friends!
          Locate in the project that we passed android interface opening
access to Haoma way the city is not in our customers success, do not achieve
the occasional caller ID, test out the Results Based on customer reaction
said: six times as access to one, thencustomers and were tested by removing
an application on the phone can get access to but the second has not, then
delete and then successfully obtained a "delete a" once such a conclusion
can be successful, lead to such problems Our position is very difficult, I
saw yesterday source, in the source code TelephonyRegistry class can be seen
directly on the phone now that the call number in the updateDisplayForPerson
method [mPhoneNumber.setText (displayNumber);], but these did not android open
interfaces and API which provides a way to get only
android.telephony.PhoneStateListener or according to source
[TelephonyRegistry.broadcastCallStateChanged (int state, String
incomingNumber) method of the last line mContext.sendBroadcast (intent,
android.Manifest.permission.READ_PHONE_STATE);]Another way to accept the
broadcast, which we have tried two methods, conclusions are sometimes the
client side to get to the number, the customer is located the city as the
capital city of a province of China, and left that phone customers in
Nanjing, China(also China's capital city of a province) has been on our side
can get to the call number, and the customer when we were in Nanjing
demonstrates to him, when did this issue did not arise, when we can get to
the call number , I also checked the Internet a lot of information and
basically had no corresponding argument, asked a few of the companies and
companies outside the android counterparts, they have never encountered a
similar problem to give any reference of views, there is no way the case I
thought to ask you, hope you have this experience or understanding of this
issue have more to give me a peer-cause of the problem or the solutions, not
very grateful.

public class PhoneStateBroadcastReceiver extends BroadcastReceiver {
public void onReceive(Context context, Intent intent) {
TelephonyManager tm = (TelephonyManager) context
switch (tm.getCallState()) {
case TelephonyManager.CALL_STATE_RINGING:
//The following "incomingNumber" This value, sometimes to have access to,
and sometimes for less than
                        incomingNumber =
