Nokia N900 has Hindi Support

Finally Nokia did something good with N900. with latest

firmware for India (RX-51_2009SE_10.2010.19-1.004_PR_COMBINED_004_ARM),

it include Hindi Fonts (Mangal.ttf), but wonder why Microsoft’s Non-Free Fonts

are in Device, when they can use Free/GPL fonts.

(it is available at $49 here and various other languages also)

But finally Nokia did something for Indian languages. There is

no support for input or language selection as Hindi (India – English(UK)),

but you can surf web and read news in Hindi. Not just Hindi, but

any Devanagari Script based language, which are supported by qt


Linux Confidence…

While playing and busy with installing driver for M4A89GTD PRO/USB3,

there is file


I was wonder why only text file. but feel proud after reading only line in file, which was


“Note: Please update to the latest Linux Kernel for motherboard chipset and components support.”


While purchased new motherboard, I tried to boot previous Windows 7 64-bit installation, (with ASUS M3A785TD-V Evo + Phenom II 945), but it failed,

Fedora 13 installation – Kernel Panic

Debian Live CD – Failed to Boot

Windows 7 – Reboot repeatedly without any specific reason

Major Change – ASUS M4A89GTD PRO/USB3 –    USB3/SATA II/

Processor: AMD Phenom II X6 1099T –          Turbo Core

After wasting 3 hours with various methods, finally download latest bios

Version 1456 – 2010/05/14  – M4A89GTD PRO BIOS 1456

Few fixed:

-Fix the issue that GPU booster may be unable to adjust GPU clock.

-Now Boot time, you can select only Boot Devices (NEW Feature)

– Display Image is changed at boot screen

– More core detected (old bios only show 4 cores in CPU configuration)

– Better Speed Selection for SATA (3GB/s or 6GB/s)

After rebooting and keep at other setting default, system boot in Windows and

start detecting new hardware. Finally it save fresh installation.

CPU Default run at 3.8Ghz, while mention speed is 3.2Ghz, wonderful!

Yahoo IM got better Indic Rendering, but still minor update need for Punjabi…

Final release of Yahoo! Messenger (, it

provided support for Punjabi Language to input, specially I tested

for Punjabi (Gurmukhi) and Hindi. Rendering for Hindi is

quite good, but rendering for Punjabi need to improve, while type in

input box, it is good enough for Chat Box, but while type, it shows

space more than actual. (try to type with ka+Halant + Ra + SPACE + Ka)

Adding video about it, (Thanks to CamStudio),

surely Yahoo! IM has great improvement for Indic Languages, but Punjabi

still have some issue.
