comment Using xrandr freezes computer completely
It's definitely a video driver bug, I agree. I've seen many-a-laptop with similar issues. Many times drivers work the first time, but not later times, etc.

comment How to configure Xorg for a dynamic dual monitor setup
Glad to hear you're checking it! I know people that have fried laptops from running with the lid closed. [if the CPU isn't running full out, it'll help of course].

comment Fedora 15 - Audio Configuration
The first, by the way, is for passing sound the HDMI output cable. IE, when you connect the computer to a TV via an HDMI cable you can have the sound go to the TV.

comment Maemo: how to get system information/specifications?
There is, but I haven't tried it, a compiler that you can put on the device itself. I tend to compile on my desktop when compiling for the N900 and the transferring the results there (via scp to it).

comment Which cell phones run Linux?
hhh: Ahh... that's not shell multitasking, that's terminal virtualization. I suspect on the N900 you could write something to switch between open xterm windows which would be similar, and then bind it to a key, but you're right that functionality isn't there now.

comment Which cell phones run Linux?
@hhh: I'm not trying to push the N900, FYI... But you keep asking questions! it does support chrooting and certainly has multi-tasking shells (and I'm not sure why you seem to think it doesn't).

@hhh: you can edit the keymap to make the keys be whatever you want. EG, adding a tilde and other things requires messing with the keymap.

Well, you can. I'm not sure why you'd want to since 'apt-cache search ffmpeg' shows me someone else already has!

It'll take a long time for someone to pry my N900 out of my cold hands. I LOVE the phone. It's like carrying a small computer around with me, complete with standard linux hackability.
