During development I realized that many device specific features are not available in the emulator. So I decided to find a way to debug software in realtime on the device. First of all I had to upgrade my Device to version PR 1.2. So my SDK and the device libraries had the same version numbers.
I had to install the „maemo pc connectivity“ Package on my N900 and on my host pc.
First I enabled the developer repository on my N900:
catalog name: extras-devel
web address: http://repository.maemo.org/extras-devel
components: free non-free
in a shell on the N900:
apt-get install maemo-pc-connectivity gdb
On my Host System I added the repository:
deb http://pc-connectivity.garage.maemo.org/repository intrepid main
and installed host-pc-connectivity by typing:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get instsall host-pc-connectivity
I had a new usb device with an IP address 192.168.2.14.
