One click installation for Nokia N800/N810 Orbiter

Finally, the repository for Nokia Internet Table Orbiter was setup (thanks to Andrew Herron from Convergent Home Technologies Ltd) to provide one click installation for Orbiter. Actually, that possibility is available for OS2008 (Chinook and Diablo) only. There is no way to specify more then one repository in Mistral (I suppose nobody use it now) and Bora (it’s used on Nokia770 only I guess). So, if you don’t have OS2008 on your device you should add Maemo and Maemo Extra repositories first.

Anyway, with new one click installation the Orbiter can be installed on your device easily and quickly.

Release of Maemo SDK VMware Appliance 4.0

Maemo 4.0 (Chinook) Beta environment

Recently the new version (4.0) of Maemo SDK VMware Appliance was released. This release includes following: Maemo 4.0 (Chinook) and Maemo 3.2 (Bora) with Nokia Binaries Installer, PyMaemo packages, Vala compiler and its Hildon bindings for Chinook, Maemomm libraries, EVAS (Bora and Chinook, but i386 only), qemu-arm-eabi used as default cpu transparency method, Eclipse with ESbox plugin, and Firefox has now a lot of bookmarks for reference material. Additionally version 4.0 provides code samples for all the libraries and development packages cited above.

Full changelog is available here. The Maemo SDK VMware Appliance 4.0 can be downloaded via HTTP (part 1, 1.0Gb and part 2, 947Mb) or BitTorrent.

I already downloaded and started to use the previous version with beta version of Maemo 4.0 (Chinook). I already built a few packages needed for LinuxMCE Orbiter. Now I’m going to continue my work using the Maemo SDK VMware Appliance 4.0.

UPDATED: After the first running of Maemo SDK VMware Appliance 4.0 I could find the network interface. After a sort googling I got solution – remove the file /etc/udev/rules.d/z25_persistent-net.rules and restart network service.
