Re: Fremantle porting - getting organised

The problem is that modern websites use features that require a web browser of memory usage that exceeds the 256MB of RAM of the N900. Your choices here are simple:

This (https://github.com/mukulhase/WebWhatsAPI) seems like it might be the solution. Anyone fancy writing a Telepathy interface for it?

Re: [Announce] CSSU devel, it may eat your brain

Very true. Perhaps APT should be removed altogether then?


The point of APT that it is a package manager which handles dependencies automatically. When caution must be taken, we have dpkg to...

Re: [Announce] CSSU devel, it may eat your brain

I don't agree with this. upgrade and dist-upgrade are part of the functionality of APT. As xes pointed out, if there are broken packages/dependencies, they should be fixed. If fixing them is...

Re: My vision for the future of Maemo Fremantle

Agreed, let's move on, however I feel I should point out that RAID is directly related because Btrfs is not only a file system but it is also a volume manager. Btrfs checksumming is used to detect...
