I was trying to set up the N800 tablet without joy. The steps I was following are from:http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Nokia_N800
I would like to know how to debug what's wrong:
- I have downloaded the newest firmware and installed OS2008 - (Software Edition 2008 version 5.2008.43-7 for Nokia N800 / The latest IT OS DIABLO release for Nokia N800 )
- the orbiter software for N800 was installed by clicking on: http://diapub.com/~michael/install/diablo.install
- The LinuxMCE which I am using is based on 0810 - new-installer-alpha-latest.tar.gz from 2009-09-30
- I did disable the firewall as I thought that this might be the issue, my system contains two cards, one wired and one wireless. The wired is connected to dhcp server and wireless is manually configured for different subnet.
I did setup the wifi to connect ad-hoc to the device as due to some wired bug I couldn't get the dhcp address from my router:
ifconfig wlan0 down
sudo iwconfig wlan0 mode ad-hoc
sudo iwconfig wlan0 essid "testme"
sudo ifconfig wlan0 up
sudo ifconfig wlan0 192.168.80.1
I can ping the tablet:
PING 192.168.80.129 (192.168.80.129) 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from 192.168.80.129: icmp_seq=1 ttl=255 time=18.9 ms
64 bytes from 192.168.80.129: icmp_seq=2 ttl=255 time=13.0 ms
Also from the tablet I can open web-orbiter based on the webpage: http://192.168.80.1/lmce-admin/weborbiter.php
So when I am starting the LinuxMCE Orbiter pointing at the correct IP address and the Orbiter ID 76, which is the correct one, the symptoms are as in the wiki:
"(If the Start Orbiter button stays "pushed" (i.e. blue) for only a few seconds then changes back to normal, then something has gone wrong. Check your network connection and verify the IP and Orbiter ID are correct.) "
I believe that everything is fine. Is this orbiter working with 0810? How to find out what might be wrong?
