By using these testing images, you're morally obligated to test them and to edit this page and report -every single bug you find-, no matter if they're theme flaws, quirks, bugs or crashes. You can optionally also use bugzilla , use version 0.13.

Please send the bug report urls to mer-chatter (see Mer/Awareness ) as well and share your bugs, testing experiences.

Test master is Meizirkki, and can be found in #mer on usually and you can ask him if there's some specialized areas that need testing. Take these testing things first.

These images will not be the only ones this week. In N8x0 installer, when it asks for URL=, write URL=http://the.image.intended. Instructions on Mer/Releases/0.12 still apply.

Bugs in testing1

  • Hardware keyboard/slider events on N810 when device is in standby only turns on backlight, and doesn't unblank the screen. Touchscreen events work fine in this respect.
  • Touchscreen using xf86-input-tslib does not work (N8x0, SmartQ). Fix will be in testing2 image (redownload image and it should be fixed)
  • Brightness applet makes hildon crash (not always)
  • Freezing at shutdown if the command is given from the new gui
  • Enhancement: jffs2 images, kernels, etc.
    • Potential fix: Edit kernel-diablo in Maemo:Mer:Devel:HW:N8x0:Devel to include a variant (like -oprofile or such) that is built to sed CONFIG_CMDLINE from 'CONFIG_CMDLINE="root=1f03 rootfstype=jffs2 ro console=tty0 console=ttyMTD5" to:'CONFIG_CMDLINE="root=1f04 rootfstype=jffs2 init=/sbin/tablet-init ro console=tty0 console=ttyMTD5"'
  • Minor issues:
    • [0.12, not verified to be in 0.13testing1] /etc/init.d/powered produces a message similar to ‘[: 105: false: invalid operator’. The fix is to change ‘==’ to ‘=’ in all lines of the form ‘[ "$FOO" == "true" ]’. (Just search for ‘==’ in all init.d scripts.)
      • Fixed in powerlaunch 0.9.2mer8
    • [0.12, not verified to be in 0.13testing1] Near the top of /usr/sbin/ is ‘if dim > blank: print "Dim must be >= blank"’; the message should say ‘<=’ rather than ‘>=’.
      • Fixed in dsme-tools 0.8

x86 VMDK

  • Text in text fields can not be drag-selected (cursor jumps to start of field instead)
  • Applications installed prompt for folder location but are always stored in Extras
    • Artifact of Fremantle Application Manager i think
      • (Irrelevant. It's a bug)
  • Organize dialog nonresponsive to any input
  • Locale hardcoded to en_GB.utf8 (?)
    • There is a .current-locale feature, needs control panel (+ reboot), look in /usr/bin/start-hildon
      • the file is ~/.osso/current-locale and it doesn't work.
  • Terminal menu text is not replaced with localized text - e.g. "webameedit - webamecopy" etc.
  • Terminal toolbar Ctrl button non-functional (try Ctrl + d, Ctrl + h, Ctrl + g, Ctrl + c)
    • Work on including patches in libvte on into vte - there's some not included yet.
  • Terminal toolbar (likely other) has significanly misaligned background image when selected.
    • Icon sizes are changed in Fremantle, so a theme issue probably
      • no. There are no icons on the toolbar. Screenshot: Toolbar Bug (this has been a persistent bug in Maemo, though mostly for all python programs, evidently)
