Hi Folks,

does anyone knows how i can make screenshots on my EeePC 1005P running Froyo?

I don't get an adb connect via USB so i tried it with "adb wireless" where i get a connect, but when i try to make a shot via DDMS i jsut get a black screen.

Also no screenshot app works, due a lack of root...

Would be nice to get that solved...

Thx!

To take screenshots via adb, you have to
disable the OpenGL hardware acceleration.
Add HWACCEL=0 to the cmdline.

I meant the kernel cmdline.
Add it to grub menu.lst.

Thy, i thought so, but where IS the menu.lst? I looked in every folder, did a find, a grep etc.

If i won't SEE the grub on boot, i would say there is no grub!

It doesn't exist (hidden) on normal android-x86 filesystem.
You have to enter debug mode to find it.
You may also change it temporary
by editting cmeline in the boot menu.
(press 'e' twice on the menu)
