This is my README

These files are just me mucking about with my N900. I've got Debian wheezy armhf, Pali's 3.8 kernel and xserver-xorg-video-fbdev.

bar batmon battery hardware lib wm

The battery folder is a battery charger in Ruby ( not required for any kernel such as the 3.8 that charges the battery for you).

hardware is a D-Bus service that provides access to hardware such as the battery status and backlight.

wm is a really really simple window manager.

bar is a bar across the top that includes battery and clock applets.

lib/XR has ( very incomplete) Ruby bindings for Xlib.

lib/SDLR has ( very incomplete) Ruby bindings for SDL.
