I got sockets to work: the problem was in proper polling, so socket
handlers can be run. See [1]. I can open Monticello repos and install
packages on the tablet for example, but compilation may appear slow
(depending on the CPU of course).

Did you place the image, sources, changes anywhere underneath of your
sdcard root mount point? Do you see a list of images when you start
the application?

Does the previous version
http://squeakvm-tablet.googlecode.com/files/sqandr_pres.apk (of Apr
11, 2011) behave same way?

You may download this file:
http://squeakvm-tablet.googlecode.com/files/sqandr_pres.zip (this is a
Squeak 3.9 image) and unpack it on your sdcard. See


BTW this should work with new VM as well, and progress indicators are
much better animated.

The images would be looked under whatever
Environment.getExternalStorageDirectory().getAbsolutePath() returns
plus few hardcoded paths in the application XML resources descriptor
file. The code (same as in the previous Squeak VM) is in


see functions File[] findImageFiles(String[] dirs) and File[]
findImages(String dir)

Also see the file /sdcard/jni.log - does it contain anything?

Please let me know.
