Links to source that is relevant for Fremantle

Packages from the Fremantle SDK nokia-binaries containing useful information but which you may not know about

  • wappushd-dev interface to wappushd daemon
  • sharing-dialog-dev interface to sharing dialogs
  • profile-data-dev dev headers for accessing profile data
  • opengles-sgx-img-common-dev headers for the SGX drivers
  • libgles2-sgx-img-dev headers for the SGX drivers
  • libgles1-sgx-img-dev headers for the SGX drivers
  • libcsnet-dev header files describing the interface to the Phone.Net Dbus interface used for cell network information (signal strength, cell site changes, operator name/code changes, 2G/3G changes etc). This one is missing dependencies so you will have to force it to install and ignore the dependencies.
  • icd2-dev header files for icd2 daemon
  • hald-addon-bme Documentation contains information on how to talk to the BME HAL (Hardware Abstraction Layer) interface.
  • libcal-dev Interface to the configuration area on N900 phone.

Packages from the Harmattan SDK containing useful information not in the Fremantle SDK that may apply to Fremantle

  • libsysinfo-dev development headers for the Harmattan version of libsysinfo.
  • libicd2-dev development headers for the Harmattan version of libicd2.
  • libicd-network-wlan-dev development headers for the Harmattan version of icd2 wlan plugin.
  • libbmeipc-dev development headers for the Harmattan version of libbmeipc.
  • icd2-osso-ic-dev development headers for osso-ic library

Packages from the N900 device repository containing useful information in their documentation folders

Because the /usr/share/doc bit is removed on the device, you will need to use apt-get to download the .deb and extract the files from that

  • csd-gprs This pakage contains full documentation for the dbus interface in /usr/share/doc/csd-gprs
  • csd-call This package contains some example code of how one might call libcscall in /usr/share/doc/csd-call/README.gz. Not that useful without headers for libcscall but may provide some tidbits of info
