    In light of native launch being included in WebOS 1.3.5, has anyone considered re-visiting Samba as the preferred method of accessing files over the wifi adapter?

    Assuming that the sound dropping problem has/can be fixed, I would think that Samba could now be bundled up as a no-Linux-access-required package.....

    Hi guys, installed the optware bits on the phone and have downloaded putty to pc, I'm using Windows 7. Followed the instructions for configuring Putty from Secure Linux/UNIX access with PuTTY and OpenSSH up until it says login. When I try to launch putty with the above settings it says "unable to launch connection to dbserver Host does not exist" I'm sure I must of missed something. Is there something I need to do on the phone.

    I've been wanting to do this myself. I hate hooking up that damm USB cable.

    I think the best solution for all the novices here (and in this particular case, I am going to consider myself a novice), is for someone to build an installation package that walks us through all the pieces of setting this up.

    Something like a script file that can ask us questions, such as our internal ip address and the name of our Windows machine (and Mac if that is possible as well).

    Sort of like a Wizard installation process for us that novices and lack major Linux skills.

    What do you guys think, is this possible?

    PS Or at the least, a video step by step guide so we can actually see what needs to be done!

    From start to finish! Does this sound feasible?

    That's exactly what I do, emailing stuff to your self is time consuming but it's the cheapest and easiest way to back anything up from your phone. I also use Picasa for my pics. Connect the phone, upload, that's pretty easy. I am to cheap to pay for sync software and so far that's all I have found for the Pre. Syncing should have been included with the ph. like it was with WM.

    We've had to change the way that optware packages are installed.

    You may need to uninstall all optware packages, then reboot the Pre, then reinstall openssh-sftp-server.

    Apologies, but it has to be done so that in the future after an OTA update or webOS Doctor we can have openssh be re-enabled automatically.

    Everything works again. Love it to be able to transfer files wieelessly. Too bad I couldn't get the SFTP plugin for Total Commander to work though OK, the key converting tools that came with WinSCP also enabled me to use the Total Commander plugin. Nice!

    Once you SSH into the Pre, where are your media files? The pictures, ringtones, music, etc -- I'm trying to locate them from the / root folder on the Pre.

    Edit: That was easy! :-) Browsed around, and found it in /media/internal.
