    Content publishing for N900

    Hi,

    I have some queries with regards to publishing maemo content. What is the extension of the file accepted for publishing?

    Also, my application requires some extra dependencies for it to work. For example sqlite and phonon. How does ovi store ensures that these dependencies is installed on the user's N900 so that my application can work?

    Ovi Store does not check for or ensure any dependencies are satisfied.

    For S60/Symbian, it is explicitely required with Ovi Store that there are no separately downloadable/installable components that the user must acquire, before the actual content (in other words, the dependent components/libraries must be included in the downloadable package, if they are not a standard part/feature of the device).

    I have no idea whether the same policy will be applied to maemo or not.

    The file will fail using the GUI and the only way is to load via "dpkg -i "
    The user would have to load the Qt HelloWorld Example first to load the Qt 4.6.2 libraries from extras, which would need connection via WiFi as the 3G costs would be too high

    UPDATE:- just checked other postings only FREE content accepted for N900 all N900 PAID content has been withdrawn.

    The reason is a severe security flaw. Will not add anything here.
