It is great when you can contribute to others work. It is amazing to have access to the code, read and improve it.

But it is amazing when you see that there are other people improving your own work.

Jott has improved my Linux patch for Xomap Rotation and created an applet to make our lives easy when rotating. Take a look at his install instructions.

I hadn’t published my compiled kernel and .deb packages for chinook yet because I found a bug when switch screen on after automatically switch off, but Jott’s patch has fixed it. :)

Thank’s Jott.

    Rotates great. I have only found one issue of note, my camera on the n800 no longer displays on the screen. It still takes pictures, but it is a guess at best as tto what I am shooting.

    Has anyone else had this problem? Any ideas oon how to fix this?

    Hi Dave,

    I’ve just noticed that I cannot see any video :( I don’t know yet what’s wrong, but I’ve noticed that something is consuming to much memory…

    I’ll investigate it when have some free time…

    Right now I’m attending Bossa Conference.

    Hey vivijim,

    My n800 screen has recently started rolling vertically as old tv s used to (needed to tweak vertical hold back then). I suppose vertical sync is what is responsible for it on the lcd.

    Do you have any advice on what could be wrong? It’s almost certainly a hardware problem since initially the screen would start rolling a bit and then resync back into position and slowly the amount of rolling got worse and presently it’s rolling at a constant speed.

    I’m asking you since you seem to have good knowledge of at least the software control. Are there any s/w diagnostic tools that i could run to check what’s wrong? (sorry to be posting on the rotation blog but suggest me an alternate)
