Editor: Ryan Abel
Pali Rohár has announced a new version of the N900 power kernel with framebuffer support: In new version of kernel-power is framebuffer support as external kernel modules. A lot of posts was in kernel-power thread how to use it. So this can be used for Recovery Console Mode. It is entry for bootmenu which start classic console mode on Nokia N900 with working HW keyboard. The package is in Extras-devel. Fortunately the presence of a framebuffer console will make potential hazards of the repository slightly less painful.
IP Address Widget for Harmattan
Editor: Andrew Olmsted
Thomas Perl has created a utility that allows an icon on the application list in Harmattan to dynamically update itself with the current IP address of the device. Based on my experiments with the Calendar Icon Hack, this takes the concept one step further and provides a "Widget" for your Harmattan (N950/N9) application screen that shows your current IP address(es). If you click on it, it will automatically update itself. There is a package to install linked in the article, and Thomas has some ideas for later versions.
