Cool, can you point me to a URL where I can find the installer for libc6?

Ok, my mistake. OS2007 includes libc6 2.3.5 but in the package requirements specified 2.5.0. So, I'm gonna to release a new version with Exit button (thanks a lot Tom, for his patch) and will correct that problem as well.

Fixed that problem for bora and uploaded a new version of the Orbiter with button 'Exit'. Try it and let me know about results.

Hi Michael,

Tried adding the new version to a Diablo N800. Browsed to the Diapub repos and then clicked 'Diablo' and installed the packages.

I see both packages in the App Manager 'Installable Application' list;

- lmce-orbiter-installer
- lmceorbiter-os2008

Click the 'lmce-orbiter-installer' and then click 'OK' when asked if I want to install. I almost immediately see a 'Operation Failed' warning over the progress bar window with an 'OK' button (the progress bar continues to animate in the background). If I click the 'OK' button then the install stops and I nothing is installed.

Have you see this at all?

Hi Michael,

this night I've installed the new package lme-orbiter-0710-5 for my nokia 770 OS2007HE, and it seems working well.

I made some tests, and the exit botton worked well. Great jobs and thanks also to Thom for the info about the missing button.

10x all

Luke

Andrew, I installed yesterday the latest diablo package using one-click method on my N810 without any problems. Moreover, I installed it under VMwave diablo maemo appliance using apt-get. It was also ok.

Luke, nice to see that iy works for you :)

Hmmm... ok maybe as a test I should re-flash Diablo and see if that makes a difference. I'll do that later and report back with any news ;-)

OK after reflashing my N800 with Diablo I successfully installed the latest maemo Orbiter without any problems at all.

I am finding the N770 does not always register screen presses using OS2007 and the one-click installer. How much better is the N800? I notice they can be had reasonably cheaply now.

the n800 and n810 work much more reliably. the CPU is faster, there is considerably more memory, and better power consumption.

with that said, you should go into control panel > memory, and turn on virtual memory (be sure you have say a 128mb RS-MMC card installed.).. this will cause reliability to go up to almost 100%.

In additional to Tom's suggestion have a look that wiki page. It explains how to tune Nokia770 for better performance and stability of LMCE Orbiter.

Yeah, done all that but still not 100% happy with it. Guess the 800 will be the best bet. They're pretty cheap now.

BTW it would be nice to have some feedback from the orbiter buttons, so I know the message has been registered. Some of them go yellow when I press them (scenarios) but others don't seem to. Also for scenarios it would be good to get some knowledge of whether it had been completed successfully. For example when I'm going out I push the scenario button which switches everything off in my house, but how can I be sure it has worked if nothing in my hallway was turned on anyway? At the moment I have a quick look round the other rooms of the house.

It would be good to have a popup when you pick a scenario (maybe at bottom of screen) which displays the currently running step, then a tick appears when it's complete (or cross) and it moves to the next. Or anyone any other ideas?

Just check a floorplan... if you want some confirmation of device status etc
