EvilGHi, I need some help regarding my Bluetooth Keyboard; can anyone please assist or give me a hint on where to find help?01:10
EvilGI have a "Smart Bluetooth Keyboard" which can be used with kbdd. I used xmodmap to fix the layout for the german keys.01:11
Disconnect770 or n800?01:11
Disconnectgot the bluetooth plugin?01:12
*** jpetersen has quit IRC01:12
*** jpetersen has joined #maemo01:12
EvilGNope, works fine without. But some keys only produce characters in xterm, not in other apps.01:12
EvilGespecially german "Umlaute" or the EuroSign.01:12
Disconnectdunno. the 770 input methods are a disaster, i'd use the bluetooth plugin and see how that works.01:13
Disconnect(the 800 uses standard input methods, so a ton of the problems went away)01:13
Disconnectits somewhat late in the day for most of the people likely to have intl keyboards01:14
EvilGdisaster seems a pretty accurate description :-/01:15
Disconnecthopefully the engineering release will fix it01:15
EvilGi hope so too01:16
EvilGmaybe it is an x11 problem, though. xev gives me:01:16

obrais there genuinely no perl in the bora repository01:17
* obra is surprised01:17
EvilG0 bytes is the prob - most keysyms work correctly, though01:18
Disconnectthere's a mapping file.. don't remember where tho :( been a long time since i messed with that (back when most multimedia keys, like, say, the windows key ;) weren't mapped in X)01:18
Disconnectxkeysyms maybe, something like that can map them on the fly01:19
*** gummibaerchen_ is now known as gummibaerchen01:20
EvilGi'll have a look at that...01:21
Disconnectfor a simpler fix (maybe..) try taking out all the custom stuff and using the bluetooth plugin, it might Just Work. (and if not, well, thats why you save all the stuff you take out :) ..)01:21
EvilGi think that the bt plugin is intended for hid keyboards, but mine is an older one and needs kbdd. at least the bt plugin was not able to connect to the kbd01:26
Disconnectah ok01:27
* Disconnect grrs. dsp_dld keeps rebooting my n800 :(01:27

chxhi. do we know whether the N800 has a powered USB port or not? another question, I was looking at this and was thinking "is there a BT keyboard which would let me do this with the Nokia 770/N800"? It just needs a good holster mechanism...02:49
*** jpetersen has quit IRC02:49
Jaffachx: I think the answer on "powered USB port" is a "no"02:49
*** kkpaul has quit IRC02:49
Disconnectchx: same usb as 77002:51
chxI see. Not good news :(02:51
Disconnect(remember, the hardware isn't designed for usb host. its -capable- of it, but thats different....)02:51
chxsure. And what about a good keyboard for the tablet?02:52
* Disconnect likes the thinksecret bluetooth foldable. 02:52
Disconnectgot it for the 770, still like it on the 80002:52
chxGot an URL?02:53
chx(I thought thinksecret was an Apple rumour site. I could be wrong, of course)02:53
Disconnectyah stowaway but its got some other name printed on it iirc02:54
Disconnectthinkoutside, thats it02:54
Disconnectheh yah02:54
Disconnectexpensive but (to me at least) worth it. over a year of use, only one battery change (and that was recent)02:55
chxthen I am contemplating gadgets like Nokia N95, HTC TyTN and such, a keyboard can't be called expensive :)02:55
* Disconnect thinks it was ~$100USD when he got it, not $150, but that might be wrong02:56
Disconnectno dedicated number row, thats my biggest irritation with it02:56
chxthere is no gadget that matches my needs. I might need to wait for the HTC Kaiser. But that'll be still Windows Mobile :(02:57
Disconnect(mine just says 'think' and it doesn't even say that very clearly anymore :) ..)03:01
chxI *might* be better with a slim HSDPA phone (Samsung has very nice ones) , a BT GPS receiver , a keyboard and the N800 than putting all these together in one fat package which runs Windows03:04
chxI saw at Maemo Garage that there is a mapper. That's cool.03:05
Disconnectthats sorta where i'm going (although i don't have a slim phone - 9300i)03:05
Disconnectmaemo mapper does maps (google maps, draws on top of it) gpsdrive does vectors (half-ported)03:06
*** philipl has quit IRC03:06
Disconnectmaemo mapper can (in theory) load routes that say "follow this path, alert at these turns" etc.. gpsdrive can say "how do I get there from here"..03:07
chxand, does it public transport?03:09
chxI am looking forward on moving to Vancouver and that's a *huge* place. Somewhat easy to get lost.03:10
chxI would love to have to gadgets that tell me 'you should get off the bus at the next stop' :)03:11
jonekWOW! That last mail on bluetooth head set support is by far the most detailed information EVER published by Nokia bout this topic!!03:15
jhejonek: you're welcome :)03:15
Jaffajhe: I very much appreciated it, even if it doesn't directly impact me at the moment.03:16
MilhouseThanks Johan :)03:17
MilhouseI'm the OP - the one with the SE W950i as well03:18
jheit's mostly a resourcing and prioritization issue why it hasn't been dealt with earlier. at least now we have official software requirements for it.03:18
jheMilhouse: ah, yes, hi :)03:18
jonekit doesn't impact me, too. one eye cries because it has taken so long until such detailed information was released. the other one laughs because now we know what's in the pipe. thx Johan!03:21
jonekjhe: I assume in the TI related paragraph you mean "so there is NO guarantee that it'd work"?03:24
jhejonek: yes, it's a typo03:25
Milhousejhe: seems pessimistic - are you just being overly cautious?03:25
jheI talked to our bluetooth kernel developer this week and he was quite skeptical of it working (not that he'd tested it either)03:25
Milhouseobviously not :(03:26
*** philipl has joined #maemo03:27
jonekjhe: if you find out that you are allowed to use the mentioned secret TI command, would "using it in GPL code" == "you publish it"?03:27
JaffaBah, I want to go to bed but I'm waiting for stupidly long, but failing auto-deb builds to fail again (or, well, work would be nice but let's not get our hopes up)03:27
*** saerdnaer has quit IRC03:29
jhejonek: I suppose so. Though the entire thing is pretty silly (IMHO). Even if we had the command in some binary-only component, you could still sniff it using hcidump.03:29
MilhouseRemind TI how it went with the SD specs...03:30
jonekjhe: ok - that means the TI bt component is mainly GPL incompatible! :-(03:30
* Jaffa beds.03:30
jonekJaffa: sleep well03:30
jhejonek: unfortunately so, unless we get some special permission from TI to publish it in GPL code (no idea what the chance for that is though)03:34
lle2Jaffa: if you ever happen to have too much time and everything's all rosy with sb1, it would be way cool if you could test the mud-builder with sb2 :)03:35
jonekjhe: *sigh* - sorry, but for a device like the 770 that was supposed to be operated by OSS only I'd call choosing this kind of BT chipset a mistake.03:36
jonekjhe: but maybe there is a small chance left that everything goes fine in the end :) - good night03:37
joneklle2: what is 'mud'?03:39
lle2wasn't it mud-builder that jaffa was working on? I've such an unpredictable memory03:39
jonekok - what is mud-builder??03:40
jonekah, that one! thx03:41

keesj770I tried to build sdlgfx from deb but that went terebly wrong it started building tk or similar10:01
keesj770off swiming10:02
JaffaYeah, that's what I've found. Everything in Debian seems to want to build docbook, which wants to build tetex which wants to build tcl which wants to build tk10:02
keesj770perhaps a nodoc flag of some kind?10:04
JaffaYeah, that's my plan - there's no need for info, man pages and /usr/share/doc on Maemo for most packages10:04
keesj770and some direction where to find packages and when to start from the tar.gz because building from .tar.gz is really trivial10:04
JaffaYup. Need to add some dependency handling for tar.gz's though.10:11
k-sis there any way to remove /usr/share/$PKG from .deb packages?10:14
k-s /usr/share/doc/$PKG I mean10:14
k-sright now I have some metapackages just to get dependencies right10:15
Jaffak-s: in mud, yeah - I can just modify debian/rules to not to dh_install{docs,man,info}10:15
k-sbut they always install damn copyright, README.Debian.gz, ... wich brings about 10kb to package after installed10:15
Jaffak-s: I might go down that route. Be interesting to see how Debian address some circular build dependencies10:15
k-sJaffa: but afaik, copyright, authors and readme are always installed10:16

k-sJaffa: I moved every .so to own package10:16
k-sJaffa: every .mo (translation) to own package10:17

koenk-s[AWAY]: that works, but gcc3 and gcc4 have a different name for that flag, so beware when using multiple compilers12:41
jonekkoen: can you explain shortly what that flag does? I can't imagine it from what the section of th man page says.12:44
koenjonek: it tells gcc to optimize the the arm926ej-s core12:45
koenit will basically turn on armv5 instructions and not abort when encountring assembler using those12:45

*** tbb has joined #maemo12:46
koenjonek: some things get a lot faster, like libsdl12:47
jonekkoen: java PhoneME's makefiles are prepared for that compiler flag. would you recommend to try it?12:48
koenbut keep in mind that the phoneME makefiles are full of crappy assumptions12:49
jonekkoen: you mean that floating point configuration in there?12:50
koenit's closed predecessor cvm enabled softfloat unconditonally even when dynamically linking for a hardfloat system12:50
koenjonek: among other things12:50
koenI ended up writing makefiles and .ml files from scratch for my projectg12:51
koenbut that was 2 years ago12:51
jonekkoen: as far as I understand for linux-arm-... they now enable their own floating point implementation and disable the kerneltrap by default12:53

cambbadoes anyone know reason why N800 wouldn't boot? or even better, how to fix this? flashing won't make any difference...13:42
*** greentux has quit IRC13:47
cambbaor let's ask it other way: why wouldn't flasher-3.0 restore the firmware to its original state?13:48
suihkulokkidoes the charger work? ie is there a progressbar on the device when you run flasher?13:50
cambbayes, there is a progress bar13:50
cambbaand flasher says that everythings ok13:50
suihkulokkithen the software is in original state13:50
cambbabut it won't boot13:50
cambbait just shows the Nokia logo and shuts down13:51
suihkulokkidoes your battery have enough power?13:51
cambbayes, it is full13:51
tkocambba, shuts down as in power off?13:51
cambbatko: yes13:51
tkocambba, low on battery13:52
tkootherwise it would try to reboot again13:52
cambbatko: but wouldn't it work then with charger?13:52
cambbawhen I do that, it gets into reboot loop13:52
tkocambba, plugging in the charger should boot up partially and start charging, you should see the charging animation13:53
cambbatko: no, it does not start that13:54
cambbatko: it just blinks the logo, as if it tries to start up but then shuts down immediatelly13:54
tkosounds like the battery is drained..13:55
tkonot sure, though13:55
cambbabut why wouldn't it then recharge it?13:56
cambbaI've owned this N800 only for two days, and I just charged the battery before it died13:56
*** snorkelyd has quit IRC13:57
*** Pio has quit IRC13:57
*** qgil has left #maemo13:58
tkoit needs a little bit power to run the charging software, so if the battery is totally drained (which shouldn't happen) it can't even start reliably. or so it worked in 770 IIRC13:58
cambbait does have power left, since I can flash it without the charger13:59
tkoI may be mistaken about it though, I don't know too much about battery13:59
tkogood point13:59
cambbaI know there has been some other people with this problem, but don't know if they have been able to fix it14:01

koenthat one surprised me as well15:10

keesj770yup :(15:20
keesj770And the ones  i prefer even more , and I love the media-center keyboard15:20
keesj770that is the one thing that MS is dam good at, creating keyboard15:22

keesj770not the freedom , it's not strong enough so typing really is a pain . idem in the bus or train15:28
nnodhow about this:
keesj770I guess the keyboard I am looking for must be usable when there is no surface , the virtural thumb keyboard is pretty good I have heard and many here use that15:29
Tybornnod: it still need a flat, clean surface...15:30
Tybornnod: I want to hack sitted in the sofa without cooking my lap15:31
keesj770but there are some hacks around to still use a real usb keyboard15:31

keesj770nnod, they are really stupid why did they put s shift lock on that keyboard15:33
TyborThis would be good
nnodif you could find something like this but with SD instead of CF:
Tyborperhaps it would be better to have a tablet-friendly text editor15:38
keesj770Tybor, yes15:38
Tyborkeesj770: is there anyone?15:38
keesj770I don't really know15:39

Tyborkeesj770: with the onscreen keyboard?15:40
* Tybor can use vi on the tablet if he still can be productive15:41
Tyborkeesj770: how much are you "productive" compared to a full keyboard/PC?15:41
nnodhas anyone ordered one of the 800s from within europe? how long did it take to arrive? they ship from belgium, right?15:42
keesj770770 is a complete waste of time. it has nothing to do with my work and here I am on sunday talking about keyboard and such15:42
Tyborkeesj770: agreeable...15:43

keesj770and I am just waiting to order. I had my 770 for 250 euro15:48
guerbylele, which model? (or URL?)15:48
leleguerby: uh, it was the only one with bt available at the time, let me check15:49
guerbylele, displays "stoaway" and "sierra" models15:49
lelethink it's this but name and price has changed15:50
lelebut this one looks exactly like mine15:50
guerbylele, ok thanks, the sierra looks different, don't know exactly which could be better, are you satisfied with yours?15:51
*** spect has joined #maemo15:54
lelei don't know much about the other models, the only thing i would like is the ability to register to more than one device, which mine hasn't15:54
leleas about the keyboard: once you are used to the numbers being shifted, it feels like a laptop keyboard15:55
Tyboroh ... 149$... not so different from the 151€ of Nokia's15:59
guerbylele, I think the Nokia SU-8W I have can register to more than one device (never tried with both N770 and N800 could do...)15:59
lelei paid it less than 100€, but now the name has changed to "low profile" (but looks exactly the same :)16:00
lele"ultra slim" that is16:01
keesj770mine was below 100euro16:02
keesj770but it did not support HCI and needs serial communication16:03

Tyborkeesj770: using it any bt should work, isn't it?16:10
keesj770any bt keyboard the support HCI (human control?? interface)16:10
Tyborkeesj770: wonderful! So I can buy a less-branded, fewer € keyboard...16:11
keesj770because that is some kind of stantard.16:11

ntrsCan someone please port minicom for n800?16:14
koenyou mean compile16:14
Tyborguerby: it seems that nokia's keyboard is not so costly when you compare quality hardware16:14
guerbyTybor, I have one SU-8W quality is good, but it's still small keys16:15
ntrskoen, yes, I guess.16:15
keesj770the nokia keyboard looks good.16:16
Tyborguerby: well... 15mm is not so small... I usually work with 19mm keys.16:16
guerbyTybor, one thing is that when open it's not rigid (not much of a problem in practice)16:17
guerbyactually SU-8X key size is 16 not 15 (160mm for Q..P)16:18

Guardianhi tko, did you have time to sort out how to get the libs required by the im tutorial ?18:00
feruloseebs: have you seen the webcam tutorial on
seebsI should look at that, huh!  :)18:01
seebsOf course, half the fun of learning to do something is all the things you learn about along the way.18:02
*** kender has quit IRC18:02
seebsI'm multitasking, right now, I'm alternating between PS3 Linux work and N800 work.18:02
chxnow, we have some activity on channel.. I was thinking about running PHP on N800 and I saw there is an ARM deb package already. How hard would it be to get it running on N800?18:03
chxI saw thttpd and sqlite was already ported18:03
seebsDrat!  That's way better than mine.18:03
seebsWell, now I have to think about whether I want to do this demo app anyway, or pick another app that hasn't been done to write about.18:04
koenchx: forget thttpd, use cherokee18:04
seebsInteresting to note that the gstreamer stream design is pretty much exactly the same as mine.  :)18:05
tkoGuardian, I'll find an answer for it later18:05
Guardiantko: ok18:05
tko(generally I don't work on weekends)18:05
tkoGuardian, there was a bug filed, right?18:06
seebsHmmm.  Interesting; they apparently get a simple linear framebuffer, I was getting YVYU.  I wonder why!18:06
seebsAhh!  Because of the filter.18:06
Guardiani understand, didn't want to bother you, it was just that i really had to go before the conversation moved to another topic18:06
seebsVery elegant.18:06
Guardiantko: generally i don't fill in bugs when i'm not sure i just don't forget to had some apt source :)18:06
mdamtGuardian: All the libs needed should be installed when you install maemo-explicit.18:07
chxkoen: I am happy with any webserver.But I need PHP too.18:07
*** ferulo has quit IRC18:08
chxkoen: I would buy an N800 if I could do PHP development on it. I am a Drupal (PHP CMS) developer and whenever I have free time, I would like to do something on it. A Sierra keyboard and an N800 keyboard looks even better to tout around for this purpose than my Dell X1 subnotebook18:08
chx"N800 tablet"18:09
Guardianmdamt: is it something i should install using apt-get ?18:09
mdamtNo apt-get for maemo-explicit.18:10
mdamt and get the Nokia Binaries.18:10
Guardianthe packages mentioned by the input method tutorial mention libhildon-input-method-header-sdk-dev and libhildon-input-method-framework-header-sdk-dev packages.18:10
tkomdamt, the doc only refer to "libhildon-input-method-header-sdk-dev and libhildon-input-method-framework-header-sdk-dev packages." and even that is fairly nicely hidden18:10

vandenoeverhi guys, where can i get information about the maemo developer program?18:17
Guardianvandenoever: in the topic18:17
shackanhi vandenoever18:18
vandenoeverah, ok, so basically, they want devs to start writing code and then they select which code needs testing?18:18
Guardianmdamt: will the .sh script take into account that i named my scratchbox targets differently (herring-i386,scirocco-i386,bora-i386 and so on) or will it just consider it has to be SDK_PC ?18:18
vandenoeverhi shackan, doing dbus for n800?18:18
shackanit already has dbus18:19
gpdchx: I am a drupal user - and you are 'famous' :)18:19
vandenoeveri know and that's really cool, but maybe not for c++ ?18:19
gpdchx: I just got my n800 and think that it was the best thing i ever did -- my sierra is being deliveredd and i think it will make a great pseudo-laptop18:20
shackanvandenoever, it seems they don't like c++ a lot, the only c++ thing I know maemo uses for sure is libjingle18:20
vandenoeverah ok, but does it have libc++ ?18:20
purexhas anyone had that problem with scratchbox working one day and then fail after reboot of the system18:20
gpdchx: the screen is amazing and you can easily use vi in an xterm for writing php - i have not found a php port for the device yet - but there is thttpd and sqlite - and i plan to try and get drupal running on it18:21
shackanbtw, a generous user contributed patches to crosscompile libdbus-c++ for arm so I hope I have that covered already, tough I don't have a N800 to test it on :P18:21
vandenoeveri think Strigi would be a nice lightweight search proggy for the N800: it has dbus support and is very small and light18:21
Guardiangpd: writing php on a N800 ? are so that fond of virtual keyboards ?18:21
gpdGuardian: Sierra BT keyboard... fullsize18:21
gpd330grams :)18:22
shackanvandenoever, then you could spam the mailing list and tell them about it, they might send you one for a cheaper price (beware,  I used *might*)18:22
Guardianok doesn't make sense to me but have fun anyway :)18:22
gpdGuardian: i sold my laptop - and this would be great when in a cafe / on the move18:23
lle2purex: you need to run /scratchbox/sbin/sbox_ctl start after reboot18:23

mdamtBut you could get the IM packages from ~/maemo-sdk-nokia-binaries_3.0rc9/ directory.18:25
gpdchx: good question! i haven't started my search on that yet - do you want a fully running drupal server on the device - or do you just want Vim to edit the code?18:25
koos_vandenoever: there is a libstdc++ on the device18:25
purexlle2: cool it worked perfect18:25
chxgpd: full Drupal environment18:25
chxdear maemo developers, this is the guy who begs for a PHP package.18:25
vandenoeverkoos_: a good! then then # of deps is already smaller18:26
vandenoeveris there maybe a simple env. to try to compile an app for the n800 ?18:26
gpdchx: if there is a working php package in the debian ARM port - then it might be a simple as a recompile -- however the memory and performance issues might be tricky18:26
shackanvandenoever, scratchbox18:26
shackanvandenoever, or rather, the maemo SDK, which requires the nokia scratchbox crosscompiler tools18:27
chxgpd: there is a php in the arm port. yes, performance might be quite tricky. but what other gadget could I get ...?18:27
gpdchx: do you know if drupal can work easily with sqlite?18:27
* purex is away: eating18:28
gpdchx: well - if you can guarantee a powersupply then one of the umpc's might work18:28
maddlerchx... I tried basic applications with php on 770 and I don't think drupal can be usable...18:28

maddlershackan: I was considering using a CMS or a Wiki too...18:30
maddlershackan: but it was too slow...18:30
gpdmaddler: what php apps did you try? and with thttpd? and sqlite?18:30
maddlergpd... simply --disable whatever you don't _really_ need18:31
gpdmaddler: if you still have the .debs - i would like to try :)18:31
maddlerI was trying using a PHP addressbook...18:31
gpddrupal might be a CMS but is is very well written and should be scalable in both directions18:31
maddlerbut it was too slow...18:31
gpddid it have any sql?18:32
maddlerno debs here...18:32
maddlergpd... it was using sqlite18:32
maddlerI tried it with monkey httpd18:32
gpdwas it slow due to swapping -- or just processor?18:33
maddlerit was slow because monkey needed PHP to end the whole stuff in order to come up with the page...18:33
vandenoeverdoes scratchbox come with a virtual n800 for testing?18:33
gpdi run drupal on a virtual server ( with 64M ram, apache2, MySQL and 150Mhz -- but no gui... the critical thing is getting the memory down to a minimum18:34
maddleryup... but apache+php are way faster than monkey+php18:34
gpdand you didn't try thttpd -- any reason?18:34
maddlerand if I recall correctly things weren't better with php+thttpd18:34
chxthese are bad news18:35
gpdmaddler: this was on a 77018:35
maddlergpd.... yes...18:35
gpdchx: the 800 has more ram and faster processor - so might be better18:35
maddlerI'm gonna try it on the N800 as soon I'll get mine...18:35
maddlerI think next week18:35
gpdi would try it now - but i need to check that that 770 packages will run on the 80018:36
maddlerthe point is the web server...18:36
maddlerthey all were running PHP in cgi mode...18:36
maddlerand that basically was slowing down things a lot...18:36
gpdhow about PHP5 -- with sqlite buit in - that might be better18:37
lle2gpd: don't forget that on the tablet you've also the browser and the rest of the gui running, so comparing that with a server running nothing but php+webserver is not strictly apples and bananas, but more like apples and tricycle18:37
gpdlle2: yeah - i realize - but just 'living the dream' for now :)18:37
maddlergpd... always the same problem... the bottleneck is the webserver waiting PHP to complete the whole stuff...18:37
maddlerI mean... I checked it running a .php from command line...18:38
maddlerand calling the same page from the web browser...18:38
gpdchx: of course -- if you have Internet -- then all this becomes mute... you have everything at your fingertips18:38
maddlerit was 1:1018:38
lle2gpd: sure, the increased RAM should help a lot18:38
gpdhmm -- well it is worth a try -- i'll let you know how i get on18:39
chxgpd: of course, but I do not always have Internet and data transfer over GRPS/EDGE/HSDPA is steep18:40
lelemaddler, php has quite an high initialization cost indeed18:40
chxmaddler: fast cgi?18:41
maddlerlele... yup... but there was a huge difference anyway...18:43
lle2maddler: did you run the test on the 770?18:43
maddlerchx... not sure it can really change so much ...18:43
maddlerlle2: yes...18:43

lle2if you did then it's no surprise, it just ran out of memory and ended up being totally ineffective in getting anything done18:44
gpdchx: to be honest - i think if you want the power of a desktop from then N800 you will be a little disappointed - but the screen on the N800 and the flexible networking makes it genius to me.18:44

*** jose__ has joined #maemo20:55
koenthe IVA is the block that allows realtime vga mpeg4 decoding and encoding20:56
ssvbDisconnect: it was 'mpu_ck' then, so we have a confirmation that ARM core runs at 330MHz and DSP at 220Mhz20:57
* Disconnect figured it did mpeg based on dsptask (
Disconnecter s/_/)20:58
Disconnectbut maybe that was naive ;)20:58

* Disconnect needs to get the beefy myth box set up to run the video transcoder21:00
Disconnectat least until youtube et al work "natively"21:00
Disconnect..or until we can overclock it during playback :)21:02
ssvbDisconnect: there is the same set of dsptasks on 770, the only notable difference is that N800 does not have mpeg4dec, probably it got retired :)21:03

dijixAnyone have difficulty installing themes? after making a flash update?23:22
seebsHey, this might be a dumb question, but... Does anyone but me have a hard time getting the N800 to go into flash mode?  It mostly just boots up normally instead.23:26
dijixseebs: you mean for upgrading?.. you need to have the usb plugged in and hold the home button (the very bottom one on the face of the device) while pushing the chrome power switch...23:27
seebsYeah.  It doesn't always seem to work for me.23:27
dijixthen you should see a USB icon in the upper right corner of the screen while on the NOKIA splash screen23:27
seebsI know what to do, in theory.  It's just that, sometimes, it doesn't actually happen, and instead I get the regular boot.23:27

seebsWell, I got it to work enough to reflash.  I have to reflash to test out the details for my article.  Whee!23:32
HGFBI have to swear and curse at it for a long time whenever I want to flash. It works eventually but it's not reliable in the slightest23:33
