Post details: Maemo and mDNS

Maemo and mDNS

Porting Avahi to the Maemo platform seems to be quite hard (if not impossible) because of the DBUS version conflict (Avahi needs DBUS >= 0.34, whilst the Maemo platform is still based on DBUS 0.2x). There's a DBUS 0.3x branch in Maemo's SVN repository, but that's not stable yet, and will only be used in the InternetTablet2006 releases, so I gave up on Avahi for now :oops:.
Instead, I'm trying to create a good package of Howl now (I know, I don't like the Howl API either), then I'll attempt to build a small (Hildon?) application on top of it, just as a test case for "the real thing" ;-)

It works inside my scratchbox (i386) :-)
Built an arm deb package too, installed it on my "real" device, the software runs (no ld errors), but I couldnt test it yet as I don't have a wireless network at home, and didn't manage to get USB networking working yet :-(

I tried to get bluetooth networking between my pc and my 770 to work yesterday, and I managed to ping my 770 from my pc. This morning I installed the dropbear ssh server, and I can ssh from my pc to my 770 now. So networking works here, but unfortunately I can't get my pc to act as a router (yet :-) ). I think I'll have to configure iptables to get that to work.

It works!!! I'm tapping this on my 770 now!

(I was using eth0 for my NAT translation, but I have to use the vpnlink device.)
