sulu, I've noticed that new version of pulseaudio packages got released. Of course, i haven't updated them - due to lack of special tweaks, that we have in Your version.

what do You think - is it feasible for You to prepare updated version with Your patchset on top of it, or is it better to wait until Wheezy officially enters stable?
---

No new on Chromium bug, which is kinda driving me mad, due to Iceweasel being totally useless (sloooooooow). Maybe we should seek assistance with Chromium developers (i.e. bug report)?

OTOH, it may be good idea to test, if version that we used in Squeeze, still works ok in our Wheezy ED, or spazm out the same way, as never incarnation.

/Estel

// Edit

I've installed Squeeze version of Chromium (by editing ED's /etc/apt/sources.list, changing line:

Code:
deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian wheezy main
...to:
Code:
deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian squeeze main
(thanks conred for spotting a "typo" here, fixed)

...and reverting it after installation)

...and Squeeze version works well, so it's problem with never chromium itself. Now, who know how to properly patch up bug report for Chromium devs?

In meantime, I'm happily using ancient version of Chromium, that worked before.

// Edit 2

IIRC, we wouldn't able to update Chromium for Squeeze too (for a long time), due to lack of arm build present. I hope, that in case of Wheezy, they haven't mixed up versions, and we're not trying to run i386 one (thus, "memory protection violation"), resulting in Chromium collapsing in flames?

I tried to run debian using http://talk.maemo.org/showthread.php?t=82819 debian boots up but I have a problem with wicd so I did own wheezy image. Now wi-fi works but when I use chroot in maemo keyboard does not work as it should (especially arrows) - what kind of keyboard trick is used in those images?

Sorry for my bad English

@Estel
Could be this chromium bug: http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=680566

Unfortunately not much progress on it in the last weeks.

I've tried pointing to squeeze some time ago for downgrading chromium, but somehow didn't manage to get it working.
Thanks to your posting, after a second try today I can confirm that it works very well.

Only one annotation:
In the second line Estel meant "squeeze" instead of "wheezy"

Just tried the sid repository and installed chromium 21.0.1180.75~r150248-1 but it gives also a segfault.

The wiki has some information about it:

Thanks a lot for spotting dumb "typo" in instructions, conred, I've fixed it. I must have been sleepy, when writing it

Also huge thanks for bug pointers. I hope that they will be able to fix it upstream, and won't leave us on arm out of Chromium updates

I've just updated the wiki to answer that question, since the section on downloading your own images isn't completely applicable when it's an experimental image that's not known to the Deb Image Installer.

I understand that the easy-deb-chroot must be installed (access to icons Deb Chroot and Debian LXDE)?
This image of "debian-wheezy-sulu-Sci.img.ext2.lzma" it is already "Harmattanized", can be used on Maemo 5 without Harmattan?
How to remove icons OpenOffice and other unnecessary (package of easy-deb-chroot) with menu Maemo 5?

1. Yes, you'll need easy-deb-chroot first. If you don't have that level of familiarity with Easy Debian... you may want to stick to stable packages first, learn how it works, then play with this.

2. Yup. N900 + maemo5 here, playing with the Sci image now.

3. Delete the offending .desktop files in /usr/share/applications/hildon

Thank you very much magick777.
One more question.
After install easy-deb-chroot in XTerminal have info
Nothing to do: chroot not mounted!
Do I need to create the directory /home/user/.chroot?
I install easy-chroot separately. I created just a directory. debian.
Now I see that I have a file .chroot
Code:
# Sample config for chroot 

# Device or image containing Debian filesystem.
# Default: first in /home/user/MyDocs/debian*.img*, /media/mmc1/debian*.img*
# Some examples:
#IMGFILE=/home/user/MyDocs/debian-squeeze-m5.img.ext2
#IMGFILE=/media/mmc1/debian-squeeze-m5.img.ext2
#IMGFILE=/dev/mmcblk1p2
#IMGFILE=/dev/mmcblk0p4

# Filesystem used; must always be set when using a partition.
# Default: from extension of IMGFILE, or ext2.
#IMGFS=ext2

# Mount point for Debian.
# Default: /debian
CHROOT=/.debian

# New /tmp dir size for printing / PDF creation
# Default: 6M
#TMPSIZE=6M

# Debian user to drop privileges
# Default: user
#DEBUSER=user
There's something I should edit?
I can also delete the directory /home/user/.openoffice.org and /home/user/.gimp-2.6, /home/user/.gconfd
remnants of earlier versions?
