 Is there a way to alias the path to my custom view class (perhaps in 
its <styleable>) so I can say


in the XML, instead of


(I played around with the months ago, namespaces and what-not, but 
never found a solution.)

Just a "nice to have" thing.

Alias custom view path in XML

Not that I'm aware of. Otherwise, I would have expected Google to avail
itself of the technique with MapView. Right now, we have to spell out
the whole fully-qualified class name when putting MapView in our layouts
(unless something changed on that front that I missed).

1. sdcard mount problem-"Volmgr not ready to handle device" error

 I'm porting android 1.6 to our omap 3530 based board.

We have two partition in our sdcard.

1. mmcblk0p1- rootfs(containing android file system) -ext3 type

2. mmcblk0p2 - this had to be mounted as /sdcard - vfat type.

When android got boots in, sdcard partition /dev/mmcblk0p2 didn't get
mounted in /sdcard.
I have configured vold.conf correctly as below
    media_path /devices/platform/mmci-omap-hs.0/mmc_host/mmc0

 I get following message from logcat

It appears to me that, uevent for mounting sdcard arrives, even before
bootstrapping finishes out (not sure), which leads to aborting of
mouting of sdcard.

 What could be the cause of this issue??. Please give me suggestions
to fix up the issue.



2. How to change the color depth of Android from 16 bpp to 24 bpp.

My lcd supports 24 bpp(RGB888) and it can work normal in
bootloader. I know the default setting of Android is 16 bpp. How do I
change it to 24 bpp.

  In frameworks/base/libs/surfaceflinger/, it has many color
conversion from 24 bpp to 16 bpp, Do I modify these?

Thanks for anyone attention to this topic.
