Debian / Gpsbabel Problem
« on: February 25, 2008, 08:13:28 am »
following this guide :

i tried to convert an nmea dump file by :

1-dumping the data with

echo rw | nc localhost 2947 > test.dump

the test.dump file seems to contain some nmea data.

2-convert the dump to gpx (i also tried kml) with :

gpsbabel -i nmea -f test.dump -o gpx -F gpsd.gpx

but gpsbabel kept running for some minutes and finally hung with a memory problem....
anyone has yet tried ?
(i've 480 Mo swap file configured under debian...)

Android / Android With Internet Via A Gsm
« on: January 16, 2008, 10:45:05 am »
just a word to say that i'm succesfully running android with a ppp connexion to my internet provider via my nokia 6630, bluetooth tied to my zaurus !

before launching android :
-start bluetooth   (hciattach)
-start internet      (pon provider)

then i captured my dns setting in /etc/resolv.conf, i copied it to androit-chroot/dev/default.prop
then i launched android.

and i could launch google browser !

actually i modified the default.prop with my dns and i added the line:
net.ppp0.dns1 = xx.yy.zz.qq

and i modified the net.eth0.dns1 too. so i don't know which line is actually doing the job
(although i guess it should be the ppp0 line!)

Debian / Imap Email Live On Zaurus
« on: December 09, 2007, 09:12:02 am »
i've just found a great tool with into this blog : isync

this enables one to get all emails from an imap server, then you can read them offline on the zaurus.

1- apt-get install isync

2- cd

3- mkdir mail

4- cp /usr/share/doc/isync/examples/isyncrc.sample .isyncrc

5- nano .isyncrc
to customize default imap server, username and password (so you don't need to enter them after)

6- isync -1 -L -M ~/mail -a -s

et voila!

now you can read your local email on zaurus with mutt for example

mutt -f ~/mail/INBOX

Debian / Problem With Mc From Vitel
« on: December 04, 2007, 05:31:27 am »
i've just installed patched mc from New feeds thread. it worked great into mc : i could fn-9 for example to do function keys and so on, but now that i've exited from mc, it seems the keyboard is now very strange under X .... right now my zaurus is looping trying to open some windows i think under epiphany-webkit....
any idea vitel ?

Debian / Pokerth
« on: November 27, 2007, 06:33:40 pm »
apt-get install pokerth doesn't work because of broken here is a bypass :

as root :

cd ~

1- wget

2- dpkg -i libboost-thread1.34.1_1.34.1-2_armel.deb

3- wget

4- dpkg -i --force-depends pokerth_0.5+dfsg-1_armel.deb

5- cd /usr/lib

6- ln -s

then su as normal user, and

pokerth !

2 problems still :
-main window is too big for the zaurus screen
-debian version is the 0.5 and online server wants latest 0.6-beta5....
