Which build?

joyride-2079 works well, as in

comment:2 Changed 9 years ago by cjb

Some progress:

  • The Sugar patches to the control panel have been submitted for review (Trac #7434)
  • The OHM patches required have been committed, built and tagged into OLPC-3, so should be present in the next Joyride build:
[cjb@localhost OLPC-3]$ koji latest-pkg dist-olpc3 ohm
Build                                     Tag                   Built by
----------------------------------------  --------------------  ----------------
ohm-0.1.1-6.14.20080707git.olpc3          dist-olpc3            cjb

Still to come:

  • Perhaps expose the "number of seconds until suspend" parameter in the control panel section
  • OHM should load the current settings from the Sugar profile at OHM startup time

  • Action Needed changed from communicate to test in build
  • Keywords joyride-2134:? added
  • Owner changed from cjb to joe

The "power" control panel patches landed in joyride-2134. Please test.
Chris, Simon: where can we find test cases for both the power management itself and for using the control panel to manipulate it?

I've tested, and have found #7690 - a latent issue that this (#7384) new (cool :)) feature has exposed. Not sure what (if anything) wants to be done about it.

comment:7 Changed 9 years ago by mtd

I can't find a way of phrasing this that doesn't sound annoying, but I'm not trying to be: the changes now in ohm disable the wireless radio, but there is no "usb-disabling" component to the code changes, right? That just seems slightly at odds with the ticket's title. Which (the title or the code) is the correct description of the intended changes?

comment:9 Changed 5 years ago by greenfeld

  • Action Needed changed from test in build to no action
  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

Ohmd has been replaced by powerd, and the extreme power management option (disabling wireless/USB) is no longer available.
