@pali (mainly, but all other input also welcome )

The last days I received notification about available upgrade for 0xffff on my N900.
I cancelled and went to command line (as always). And doing 'apt-get upgrade -s' showed it will install also kernel-power-modules and kernel-power-debug?
But these two packages are already installed in that version on my device, please see below output of 'apt-get upgrade -s' and 'dpkg -l | grep kernel-power'.
So what is going on here?

Code:
~# apt-get upgrade -s
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
The following packages have been kept back:
  hildon-initscripts libcurl3 libgcc1 libsdl-mixer1.2
  libstdc++6 libxau6
The following packages will be upgraded:
  0xffff kernel-power-debug kernel-power-modules
3 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 6 not upgraded.

I released kernel-power v53 and now is in extras-devel and extras-testing. Search for TMO thread.

pali, I know.
Already posted there

But why is apt thinking it needs to upgrade the exact same package with same version? (guess I installed via dpkg -i, if that matters?)

You probably installed packages built by me months earlier. In extras repository are packages built by garage autobuilder and so packages have different md5sum/sha1sum. So apt-get thinks there is new version...

Yep, that's it.
Now I remember tinkering with /var/lib/dpkg/status and and wondering/"berserkering" why my changes always were up-faded/graded. I may apt let them"upgrade".
Thanks.

Please vote for 0xFFFF so it can be moved to Maemo Extras:

Okay so I'm a little confused (and too time-pressed to look at it in the source code): Is it currently possible to flash one N900 from another N900 with this presently? Put one into USB host mode, hold U on the other one while plugging it in, etc? Or will it always just default to the local N900 as the target device to do its flashing magic on?

First it will try local device. You can try to comment LOCAL code in src/operations.c (function dev_detect()) but I think it would not work because establishing usb host mode takes more time as NOLO can wait with holding U key... But you can try :-)

On an unrelated note, I see the package has made it to Extras, which is great, though I am curious:

1: Are we fairly confident this is pretty much safe for people to flash their devices with at this point? I mean flashing with essentially reverse-engineered tools is always a risky thing, but is it typically an error-free experience?

2: Can we add a bugtracker link to the Debian packaging? While I realize officially that's not a blocker since 2010, it seems to me like that is a nice thing to have and it only takes editing a single one of the .deb control files (assuming a bug tracker already exists for it - if not there's obviously the overhead of setting one up, but I suspect that's not an issue in this case)?

0xFFFF does not support local flashing yet. You can use it for generating or unpacking fiasco images or you can read CAL data (like hw revision, R&D flags, etc). But everything is read-only, no write support.

I think that there is no bugtracker. If there are problems write here to this thread or send me email...
