Ticket #1641 (closed defect: fixed)
opkg upgrade blows away custom volume settings
|Reported by:||hedora||Owned by:||Nytowl|
|Blocking:||Estimated Completion (week):|
The *.state files used to control alsa profiles are stored in /usr, and get overwritten without prompting by opkg upgrade.
This is really irritating, since it makes my headphones really loud, and there's no way practical to change the volume back via the current phone UI. Worse, mediaplayer's volume setting doesn't go low enough to make the default settings usable with my headphones...
Shouldn't these be treated as configuration files (so they're not automatically reverted to default values), and be stored in /etc or ~?
Perhaps it could let people override the defaults by checking for a copy of each *.state file in ~/.openmoko or /etc/openmoko before applying the default state. Then a comment could be added to the files in /usr directing people to create / edit copies elsewhere.
