I've gotten all the dependencies installed except for libmysqlclient and libsdl-gfx.  When I tried clicking them in Michael's Maemo garage repository and selecting "install" I get an error that says unable to install.  I tried downloading them and using "install from file" in application manager, but I get the same error. Can you tell me what your issue was and how you fixed it?  I'm running an n800 with OS2007 .

Strange. I understand that something can be wrong with libmysqlclient and libsdl-gfx from the repository. But in maemo garage you can find 100% working versions. Be sure that you downloaded  libmysqlclient and libsdl-gfx from OS2006 section (they are suitable for both OS2006 and OS2007) and not form OS2005!

Another thing which can help me fix the problem. Try to install those packages from the command line:
1. Run xterm.
2. Became a root: sudo gainroot
3. Run dpkg -i <package name>
4. Copy output and post it here of send me by email - michael[at]stepanoff[dot]org

Guys-

Thanks for the help.  I'll try installing from the command line when I get home.  Actually, this raises another question.  Excuse my ignorance (I just got the n800 last night), but is Xterm part of the default image or do I need to pull it from one of the repositories?

Not sure but if add Maemo Extras repository you'll able to install xterm, ssh and much more. Check that page with updated information about all Maemo repositories - http://www.gronmayer.com/it/

from what i'm seeing with the orbiter, i think memory is becoming a wee bit tight, and causing the whole system to slow down.

I downloaded both packages from the 2006 section of your page on the maemo garage by clicking on the links in the browser on the N800 and selecting 'save'. 
Installing from the command line gives
Code: [Select]

Something wrong with the file. I downloaded it from garage to my desktop and its size is different:
Code: [Select]
-rw-rw-r-- 1 michael michael 305472 2007-11-28 09:57 /home/michael/tmp/libmysqlclient12_4.0.24-10sarge2_armel.debPeople on the internettalk claimed that there is some problem with Maemo server and Opera on the Internet Tablet (http://www.internettablettalk.com/forums/showthread.php?p=96200):

As I wrote, install works as long as you don't download from garage.maemo.org using Opera on the tablet. Must be some weird config problem of the web server of maemo.org. You can download the deb from another machine and transport to the tablet for installing.
Try to download that package on your desktop and then copy it to the Tablet via ssh. Another thing you can do try to install libmysqlclient12 from the command line using apt-get:
Code: [Select]
> sudo gaingroot
> apt-get install libmysqlclient12

This makes a lot more sense to me. I'm not seeing any problems with network connectivity while web browsing or conducting a ping test, but as soon as I launch orbiter the device becomes unstable and eventually hangs completely. I am going to go back to 2006 and see if this helps.

Michael--

I got the packages from the pluto orbiter garage site via wget, then installed.  Everything worked well doing that.  It looks like the problem was in fact the browser/server combo.  Now I've got an orbiter!  Thanks!  One more thing... How do I close the orbiter app?

-Peter

Good question :) One way is send from the core following command:
Code: [Select]
/usr/pluto/bin/MessageSend dcerouter 0 <orbiter_dev_id> 7 0
The problem is that. There is a button 'KDE Desktop' instead of 'Exit'. So, I need to find a way how to exist Nokia Orbiter correctly.

Added a new wiki page - http://wiki.linuxmce.com/index.php/Tune_Nokia770_Tune_Nokia770_to_use_it_as_LinuxMCE_Orbiter which contains a few simple suggestion to improve performance and stability of Nokia770.

Is there a reason it's called "Tune Nokia770 Tune Nokia770 to use it as LinuxMCE Orbiter" and not "Tune Nokia 779 to use it as LinuxMCE Orbiter" (or just "Nokia 770 Orbiter")? Can I rename it?

Sure. I did it by mistake and couldn't find the way to rename it.

The wiki lets you rename articles by using the "move" tab at the top of the article. But for some reason, the wiki is refusing to let me rename it to "Nokia 770 Orbiter", claiming that name is taken, though it isn't.

But your article obsoletes (or updates) the Orbiter instructions in the "Nokia 770" wiki article. Would you merge them, or should I do it (though I'm doing it as a blob, since I know nothing about the Nokia 770 or the rest of this issue).
