Frequently Asked Questions
Q: "My screen flashes constantly when I turn the OSWALD on."
A: You probably have the old style battery. This problem occurs when the old battery version becomes discharged too far for the charging circuit to recover. It can be revived but it should be replaced. The new battery version will eliminate the problem entirely and will not allow you to drain the battery beyond recovery.
If you have the old style battery (or are not sure) drop by KEC1113 (across from Tekbots) to have it looked at.
Q: "My touchscreen works, but my touchpad doesn't."
A: USB may not be working. Open a terminal and type 'dmesg' scroll through for a line that mentions 'Tekbots' (alternatively use the line 'dmesg | grep bot'). If you see this then your USB hardware is working. The software problem can sometimes be fixed by opening a terminal and typing 'opkg configure' and then waiting for a while (10 - 15 min sometimes).
