PR1.2 flashing problems

Short news about the upgrade. I had to flash the new emmc and have had some problems doing so with windows. On my gentoo box it worked very fast and well. The Steps described on maemo.org should work. If not you have some problem with your OS and usb. It seems everything is running well. Even the backup function is working well, contacts and so on were there after a few seconds and the Software (Packagelist was backuped) was installed within an hour …  about 400 MB to download …

Pimp up your internet tablet

cgwort

Did you ever ask yourself how to make your internet tablet more powerful?

For a Linux based device like Nokias N810 this question is quite easy to answer.  You can easily increase overall performance and responsiveness by using a “better” kernel than the stock kernel on your internet tablet. A further advantage is that you can add features that are not available in the stock kernel. Below you will find instructions on how to build your own optimized preemptive kernel or how to install my prebuilt kernel.

gtkdoc-fixref problem on gentoo linux

Recently, when updating the gentoo linux on my amd64 box I got errors when building packages with the doc USE flag. All failing packages were using the gtkdoc tool for generating the documentation. Nowhere in the web was a topic concerning this problem. All these packages failed similar to example for libbonobo below. But many other ebuilds, i.e. glib, gedit etc. were also affected.

After some days of searching I was able to track the issue down to the part of gtk-docfixref that uses vim for highlighting. Perhaps my gtk-doc version (gtk-doc-1.13-r2) is not compatible to my vi version (vim-7.2.303). Even uninstalling vi for testing purposes was not successful since at least this version of gtk-docfixref tries to use vi even if it is not installed.

Line 290 of gtkdoc fixref:

if (“/usr/bin/vim” ne “”) {

Changing this line to

if (“/usr/bin/vim” ne “/usr/bin/vim”) {

for forcing gtk-docfixref to always ignore vi was the (temporary) solution for me. Afterwards I was again able to build all the packages using gtk-doc for documentation.

Since I did not find any information about the problem in the web I am quite unsure if I should open a bug report for it or if it is only a local problem.  So, if you experience the same problem please leave a comment.
