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.
