- Change to external modem and back to internal
Use Internet Settings in ActionPalette as usual to setup ISP Information, ISP dialing and advanced information.
You're setup now for use of the internal modem with Audrey's original auto dialer.
Use "Modem setup" in Config menu to change to external modem. Editor will open a file and all you have to do is change the line "/dev/modem1" in "/dev/ser1" (without the quotes) and save the file. No reboot is necessary. You can change back and forth to external and internal at all times. Internal modem is "modem1" and external modem is "ser1".
Please note, each time you click "Done" in Internet Settings, you will go back to the internal modem and you have to repeat "Modem setup" to use the external modem
- Change to Dialer from QNX RTP and back to the original Audrey dialer
Click "Use Dialer" in Config menu. You can use Dialer for the internal and external modem with or without doing the previous step. Dialer needs it's own setup and when you exit Dialer it asks for a name of the profile and saves it. Here again "/dev/modem1" is for the internal modem and "/dev/ser1" for use with the external modem.
To go back to using the original Audrey dialer click "Restore auto old" in the Config menu.
- Use of 2 modems simultaneously
You can use the internal and external modem at the same time, one to dial out and the other for CallerID. Please note that CallerID when in use, blocks that modem for dial-up.
Configuration items in general
- Edit /kojak/go Config menu item
Edit the autostart from your apps etc. here and save the file before closing.
There seems to be a bug in Editor (ped). For a fix go here.
- Rescue in the wm pop-up menu
All configuration files are extra saved in this image with the extension .old and by clicking this wm menu item you restore all of them to my orginal settings.
Please note if you save these files at all times after changing them, with the .old extension after you're sure Audrey boots with them, you could be 1 step away from restoring them in case of trouble while booting. If Audrey hangs during boot on the "3COM Proudley Presents" screen you have no choice but reflashing Audrey. However more often you make a mistake and Audrey boots with a partial desktop or none and by pressing Alt(=Paste)-Enter you still can get the wm pop-up menu and do this trick.
- Eliminating the Audrey giggle at boot
You can do this with this command from the prompt:
You can restore with this command:
ln -s /kojak/vserver /kojak/voyager.server
For the duration of the clip the desktop will shift a 1/4 inch. I'm convinced this clip can be deleted completely, but I leave that to others to figure out how.
- Shelf Cfg menu item
Shelf is setup with 6 program Groups. You can manipulate the openening screen at boot with Shelf Cfg by having shelf open the way you want it on screen and in Shelf Cfg together and press Apply and Done. Please note Shelf has to stay in auto close for Audrey to work without any problems.
- Desktop Cfg menu item
Currently yellow is set as the active color when the app has the focus and blue as the inactive color
- Set Time Zone menu item
Don't mess with the Keyboard and Language settings, results will be unpredictable.
- Audrey setup for use with QNX 6.1 binaries
When yoy want to use these you have to link in needed libs for these apps only. Small utilities that use ldqnx.so.2 only will work immediately.
At this time phPostal needs the following to run on Audrey:
- Connect to the internet before running it
- Uncomment "Leave messages on server" and download your messages
- Don't tap on the screen when it's fetching your mail or in general it can do one thing at a time
- To scroll use the pen to move the slider instead of tapping.
- You can move vertical and horizontal bars on screen to resize windows as needed.
If you can live with this it works fine. It's in alpha stage and we can expect new versions in the coming months. I will let you know on the BBS's when and where new versions become available and how to download them with voyager direct in Audrey.
Dating back to the MQNX image by davincy27 many Audrey users suffered unexplained
network disconnects, about 2 minutes after booting Audrey. It
appears that this problem is caused by the "CPU Monitor" in shelf for these
Audrey users. If needed use Shelf Cfg to remove "CPU Load Monitor" and you
won't have this problem again.
A permanent fix for these problems with network connections is available here. Instructions are clear and easy and you'll download a "windows style" shelf.cfg file, made especially for this image.

Sames goes for a bug in Editor when editing /kojak/go.
And again the same for a better use of Playlist Maker, read more there.
My USR external modem connects fast with this image, except it did not disconnect and to end a call I had to switch the modem off.
I don't know if this will be the case with more external modems. If you
use it for CallerID it's a non issue. If you have connect problems with the internal
modem, it could be a small price to have Audrey connect now without any problem
to your ISP with the external modem.
