    Are you still maintaining msn-pecan? I notice there hasn’t been much activity on it lately (both in L.O.C + issue tracker responses). I switched to msn-pecan a couple weeks ago for it’s apparent attention to users + bug-fixes, but found when I submitted a bug ticket it goes seems to go unanswered/unconfirmed/etc.

    Anyway, just wondered if this is still an active project of yours. Seeing as how you boast about your commitment to users, I would expect that you would check the issue-tracker more often and comment/confirm/whatever else to posts.

    @craige Yes, I still maintain msn-pecan, however, I have been busy with other stuff. I’ll address your issue ASAP.

    greetings Felipe,

    Was wondering if you are coming out with any basic N9 MSN client? i notice this essential app is missing from N9.


  5. FelipeC October 19, 2011 / 07:22

    Yes, I plan to port msn-pecan to the Nokia N9, if nobody beat me to it 🙂

    Hey Felipe,
    I have a question related to openMAX IL. I almost successfully used your bellagio on N900 for porting a video app (I say almost because the project got canned half way); I got a N9 (wohoo) and now wanted to try some different app and was looking for a bellagio version for N9. So I started searching around, but all I could find is the gst-omx without il libraries – any around?


  8. FelipeC October 26, 2011 / 01:41

    +TK gst-openmax is just a wrapper. The Nokia N9 doesn’t have OpenMAX IL libraries. In theory you could get TI’s OMAP3 OpenMAX IL and use them there, but it would be a waste in time.

    It’s much easier to just use GStreamer directly.


  9. TK October 27, 2011 / 00:58

    +FC, g-streamer is good but not what I am looking for (unfortunately). So it seems there is no OpenMax IL package for N9? Sorry to loose your time for this, btw. I can Imagine you must be busy with other stuff..The standard package (0.9.3) from the OpenMax IL Bellagio compiles pretty easily. I am missing the components tho, which seem to be the same as N900. I do not know if the interface is the same, tho. I am going to try to compile them (should be able to get them from sourceforge for the N900 – will see if I can succeed!!).

    Hi. I have a problem with the WH-701 headset on my Nokia N9. The phone wouldn’t just detect the headset. I have installed firmware update 1.1 and the headset works fine on both E72 & E6. Could you help with an OS fix? Thanks in advance.
