Michael I have noticed that when we display the 'Floorplan' views the speed at which icons change from their unselected to selected state seems to be sluggish compared to the earlier revs of the N800 Orbiter. Have you noticed this at all?

It's possible. I'm not C++ programmer. So, most probably I implemented my patch using not efficient way. Somebody who has a good C++ experience can check the code and optimize it. Sure, I'll try to do it as well.

Michael,

Are you still doing builds for OS 2006 as well?

regards
Darren

I though that nobody use OS2006 now :) I'll build the Orbiter for OS2006 today and will upload it to the garage page and diapub.com

Strange ... To trace your problem let's do following:
1. Enable R&D mode on your device if it wasn't enabled:
Code: [Select]
sudo ./flasher-3.0 --enable-rd-mode -R2. Open terminal window and type:
Code: [Select]
sudo gainroot
apt-get install lmce-orbiter-installer
3. Post here output from apt-get
4. Disable R&D mode if prefer live without it:
Code: [Select]
sudo ./flasher-3.0 --disable-rd-mode -R

Thanks Michael. Can't seem to get sudo password to work. I'll chase this up and give it a go...

Cheers,
Adriel.

Where? On the Nokia or on your PC? I put sudo because I run Kubuntu on my home PC. For example, on Fedora by default it doesn't work. So, the flasher command should run from the root account (su -).

OK - see error below:
Code: [Select]
/home/user # apt-get install lmce-orbiter-installerReading package lists... Done

Building dependency tree

Reading state information... Done

E: The package mysql-common needs to be reinstalled, but I can't find an archive for it.

Not sure how to do this (reinstall mysql-common) and could find much on the web. I tried installing Mysql DB (http://maemo.org/downloads/product/OS2008/mysqldatabase/) just in case but no luck...

Thoughts?

Thanks!

Adriel.

Woombiroller-

I am experiencing a similar error- after the running the diablo.install, my n810 prompts me with an install screen that wants me to install the 8.5mb application.  I hit OK and it tells me the software was not obtained from Nokia, so I hit OK again and it begins to download the 8.48 mb file.

It appears the download bar gets to the end and then a box appears that says, "Downloading lmce-orbiter-installer failed".  I've tried both the Diablo and the Chinook versions and the result is the same.

Any thoughts?

We've seen that on some N800's... look in 'Extras' and you should see the Nokia Orbiter is installed and working however.

No luck here I am afraid. I recall it did error out on the original install (a month of so ago), but after that it was still available. Since I removed and attempted to re-install however, it fails and remains un-installed.... :(

Hmm... very strange. We've installed on half a dozen N800's with Diablo installed and have not seen this at all. I wonder if its N810 specific or specific to your Diablo install on your N810.

Michael any thoughts?

I suspect that it happens with upgrade only. I replaced the wrong mysql packages by correct ones. So, it cause the problem with upgrade LMCE Orbiter. You can try to de-install mysql-common with dpkg - on your device run following commands:
Code: [Select]
sudo gainroot
dpkg -r --force-all mysql-common
and then install Orbiter again.

jimmejames, please, try to install the Orbiter from the command line (see how to do it in the earlier replies) and post error message.

Just remove file /var/lib/dpkg/info/mysql-common.postrm from your device (under sudo gainroot), de-install mysql-common and try to install LMCE Orbiter again.

You're a star Michael - all sorted after deleting /var/lib/dpkg/info/mysql-common.postrm... Thanks again for your help :)

I ran the commands listed previously (with the apt-get and all) and on some of the files (libsdl-gfx1.2-4 2.0.13-3 for example) I get 404s and for the lmce-orbiter-installer_0.0.1-2_armel.deb) I get a size mismatch.

Thanks for the help
