Can someone give me their package repository list? I have added the maemo standard free/non-free and the maemo extra free/non-free but it still can't find dependencies for linuxmce orbiter.

What package is missed? What OS do you use? If you cannot find some package you can still download it from maemo garage - https://garage.maemo.org/frs/?group_id=162.

I had to install every package from file despite the repository being there and the update repositories working without any error messages.

Now the software still won't install as the following are missing:

libsdl-gfx1.2
libxmu6
libsdl-ttf2.0-0

However, I have installed linsdl-gfx several times and each time it says it failed without leaving anything in the application manager log.

Can someone tell me the correct steps from a fresh OS 2006 image? I must have done something in the wrong order. I am going to wipe it and start again.

Thanks,

Chris

I tested repositories for bora only (I use os2007 Hacker Edition). So, here is my suggestion for os2006:

- libsdl-gfx1.2 - download it from Maemo garage and install manually. I have to check that package.
- libxmu6 - it's included into Maemo extra repository for bora ,not for mistral or gregale.
- libsdl-ttf2.0-0 - it should be in the repository also, but, please, download it also from maemo garage.

I also highly recommend to use os2007 the latest Hacker Edition. It's stable and has very useful feature - automation connection to the WiFi access point.

Michael,

Performance-wise, is os2007 any better or worse?

There were some comments previously that it slowed down dramatically when used in os2007 but they were still investigating. Can't remember if there was a conclusion to that.

Darren

The first version of os2007 Hacker Edition was very bad - too unstable and too slowly. But the latest release is improved a lot. So, I use it on my Nokia770 without any problems. But note that I don't use 770 actively to browse Internet, read RSS or for other personal tasks. Mainly I run the Orbiter there and it works fine under Hacker Edition.

Thanks Michael, I will try and give it a go this weekend...

I flashed OS2007 HE on my Nokia 770, and the stability just went to shit.

it reboots intermittently, especially inside the Orbiter.....and it bombs out even more than it does in OS2006, except this time, it will completely crash the application and drop me back to the desktop?

Are these issues with the Nokia orbiter EVER going to be fixed?

This thing is useless as an orbiter. I would be pissed if I had spent more $$$ than I did on it.

Ironically, my mobile phone works much better as an orbiter, more stable, usable... but I love the full orbiter panel. I really really really wish there could be a stable solution.

Do we all just get N800/810s??? and write the Nokia 770 off as, a nice toy, but...no dice? or do we fix this fucking software? oh right... nobody knows how to...Pluto wrote it, not us.

Well... our experience is that under OS2006 the N770 runs very stable and the Orbiter is also very stable. I'm not posting this for any other reason than to point out that the N770 + Orbiter is better than your current installation would lead you to believe.

even under OS2006, it kept bombing out to the login screen, that is annoying as hell..and the big reason I switched to OS2007 was the ability to automatically reconnect if the 770 gets rebooted...

so, what do I do to enhance stability?

Dear Tom, first of all I'd like to ask you give more respect for people who develop Plutohome, LMCE and third-part software. If you have some trouble, please, explain your problem more details - to share your emotions you can find better place.

Regarding the Orbiter on Nokia770. I already explained the problem many times. There is a weak WiFi support by device (sometimes I cannot login to 770 which is placed near access point but device shows high quality signal). As Nokia guys mentioned in the maemo mail list it can be because access point is not support WLAN Power Save Mode properly. So, as you may see nothing related with the Orbiter implementation.
