Re: N900 battery drain

The N900 it pretty un-brickable, a reflash will always put you straight if it's not a hardware issue.

When using powertop or zzztop it's best to take three samples and compare them to each other....

Re: [Announce] cuteTube - A feature-rich YouTube client

Well I am having no trouble with the latest cutetube version 1.10.3.
Would it be possible to push this to testing so we can QA, I believe the current extras version is not working any more.
Thanks.

Re: CSSU and devel-repo / space in app memory

Sounds like a typical case of installing extras-devel software. Some of the stuff there is not optified and bound to leave you in a mess.

Re: [Announce] MultiMote - A plugin-based remote control application

Yep, that's what I did originally. I built it with my scratchbox environment, scp'ed the deb to the device and installed with dpkg.

This is why I was confused it didn't work.

Re: [Announce] MultiMote - A plugin-based remote control application

Ah, this directory only had a VLC folder, ended up moving the three files manually to a new GoPro directory and all seems fine.

I assumed building the GoPro plugin would do that it's self.

Re: [Announce][Fremantle] FlopSwap - Swap GUI Management

Re: [Announce][Fremantle] FlopSwap - Swap GUI Management

That is how ereswap works not flopswap.
Flopswap doesn't do that it is purposely designed to not use the device swap at all.

Re: [Announce][Fremantle] FlopSwap - Swap GUI Management

Unfortunately flopswap needs and is designed purposely to use the two linux swap partitions on the card.

It doesn't have anywhere to flop to otherwise ;)

Re: SSH and watchdog

Without a watchdog the device could eat battery until it dies. This wouldn't happen on a desktop.

Re: [Announce][Fremantle] FlopSwap - Swap GUI Management

This is correct flopswap calculates swap used on the active swap, therefore only one must be active not two.


Good this is correct.

Re: Relegation from Extras

Also bear in mind of testing other versions of the package.
If say a version is in Devel or Testing and working it would be better to QA and promote that and push an update to everyone.

Re: The most peculiar way my N900 has ever gotten bricked

The two programs could have conflicted somewhere as they work in a similar way.

Re: [Announce] MultiMote - A plugin-based remote control application

I presume this would be capable of controlling a GoPro using it's URL commands?
If so has anybody made a plugin or remote for this yet?
