Porting pages

Hey, welcome to the wiki. One thing: don't add your signature to pages you transfer over from the old wiki. This is a community effort, those pages will be edited by other people, and we want to try to keep a consistent look across pages. Thanks. —X1011 17:18, 20 July 2009 (UTC)

All instances of signature have been removed -hopspitfire

/ in page titles

If you can please do not use "/" in page titles. --Templarian 23:27, 20 July 2009 (UTC)

THANK YOU for your hard work on the wiki!

Please accept this "nobody knows the trouble I've seen" award as a token of our appreciation.

Congrats on becoming an Editor --Templarian 13:16, 28 July 2009 (UTC)


I just had a horrible thought.

All those deletions you're doing that are pages that only had you as an editor...

if you delete the redireccts, aren't you deleting the thing that the old-page on the old-wiki links to? so you have broken the redirect FROM the old-wiki?

and that means that if anyone had blog-pages or precentral posts that linked to those, THOSE are broken.

I've never understood what's wrong with lots of redirects. One of my patrol pages on wikipedia has 27 redirects that end up there. And that's a GOOD thing. :-)

Patch webOS Show Actual Battery Percentage

I am having difficulty importing and pushing this particular app. I was curious if you would assist me. I have the webos 1.1 update. I get to the place (look below) and then im stuck.

dlbpre@castle:~$ sudo su -
root@castle:/var/home/root# cd /
root@castle:/# mount -o remount,rw /
root@castle:/# quilt import Index: /usr/lib/luna/system/luna-systemui/app/controllers/bar-assistant.js

of course I checked the quilt series to make sure i imported it correctly and then I pushed it and rebooted the device. When it powers back change...apparently i am missing something.

Sorry to ask you to "dumb it down" but i am a tyro (novice) to linux... :(

thanks for your help if you do decide to assist!!!!! :-D -Dlbpre

No problem at all. The first thing I'm noticing is that you're importing the wrong file, you'll want to import the '.patch' file. To accomplish this, you'll need to get the webos-internals modifications repo. Here:
sudo -s
mount -o remount,rw /
cd /opt/src
git clone git://

You'll need to make sure that quilt is configured correctly, type:

mkdir -p /opt/src/patches
sed -ire 's|^[\s#]*QUILT_PATCHES=.*|QUILT_PATCHES=/opt/src/patches|' /opt/etc/quilt.quiltrc

Make sure to remove the old series file before importing

rm /opt/src/patches/series
rm /opt/src/patches/bar-assistant.js

Then run:

quilt import /opt/src/modifications/luna/show-actual-battery-percent.patch
cd /
quilt push -a

Then reboot:


Let me know if it works. -hopspitfire 00:27, 16 August 2009 (UTC)
