 Hi, all:

Does anyone have pwirte failed on android?
I've write a small test program, to test pwrite behavior on android emulator
and HTC G1,

but it's cann't call twice correctly.  the return errno is EFBIG, but i only
write 1024 B to a file.

I cann't figure out why  this happens, please help me. thank you...

this is my test program:

#include <stdio.h>
#include <unistd.h>
#include <string.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <sys/types.h>
#include <fcntl.h>
#include <errno.h>

static void
usage(const char *s)
    fprintf(stderr, "USAGE: %s SECONDS\n", s);

int main(int argc, char *argv[])

        int fd;
        char buf[8777];
        ssize_t  total_in = 0;
        ssize_t  max_write = 0x2 << 20; /* 2 * * M */

        if (argc > 2)
                usage("test_p filepath");

        fd = open(argv[1], O_RDWR | O_CREAT, 0666);
        if (fd < 0) {
                perror(" open error");
        ssize_t ret = 0;

        do {
                ret = pwrite(fd, (void*)buf, 1024, total_in);
                printf("Pwirte: ret: %d errnos:%d \n", ret, errno);
                if (ret > 0) total_in += ret;
        } while ((ret >0 && total_in < max_write) || errno == EINTR);

        printf(" finish: total_write : %d K", total_in >> 10);

        return 0;

On the emulator and HTC G1 both have same out come:
I've test it at every file system on the emulator and G1.

the Log :

# ./test_p /sqlite_stmt_journals/aaa
Pwirte: ret: 1024 errnos:0
Pwirte: ret: -1 errnos:27
 finish: total_write : 1 K#

# ./test_p /cache/sss
Pwirte: ret: -1 errnos:27
 finish: total_write : 0 K#

The df command :

1. Checkin service problem.


Does anyone know android how to realize the "checkin" service next step?
Now, android only have a "FallbackCheckinService.cpp", it is a empty
structure, not include actual checkin realization.

2. Question about calendar

I have just acquired a Android developer phone and I am based in
India. Here is what I see. If I enter an event on Google Calendar on
web then the reminder about the event comes 3 Hrs 30 Minutes before it
should happen. If the same event I enter on the phone then the
reminder is at the correct time.

The time zone on both (google calendar as well as phone) is set to IST
i.e. GMT+05:30. This looks like a too simple to be a bug. Has anybody
seen something similar?
