 No you can't and it's not a bug. It's on purpose because with a touch
screen nested scrollable elements can be very awkward/difficult to

Don't give your EditText a limit. The whole point of putting it in a
ScrollView is that you don't have to give it a limited size. Just use
wrap_content for the height and no maxLines.

1. About DRM Permission Problem


I am trying to delete the content in DrmProvider.

When i execute the statement
"getContentResolver().delete(Uri.parse("content://drm/audio/1"), null,
null);", the exception of "Requires DRM permission" will be shown.

And one of warning message was found in logger.
"04-12 13:21:51.074: WARN/PackageManager(55): Not granting permission
android.permission.ACCESS_DRM to package
(protectionLevel=2 flags=0x4444)"

Is any setting i was missed.

The following is my AndroidManifest.xml.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<manifest xmlns:android=""
       package="" android:versionCode="1"

       <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_DRM" /
       <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.INSTALL_DRM" /

       <application android:icon="@drawable/icon"
               <activity android:name=".DRMTest"
android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN" />
android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />

Thanks all of you


2. CTS not detecting device after restart


I am testing an android device with eclair using the 2.1 CTS version.
When CTS completes a set of tests and restarts the device a "device
disconnected" messages appears on the CTS console. However after the
device completes the restart to the android home screen CTS does not
detect that the device is back online. I have to physically disconnect
the USB cable and re-connect it. Do you think this is a device side
issue or a USB driver issue on the Ubuntu machine (intrepid) where I
am running the CTS? Thanks in advance for any responses.
