IRC log of #maemo for Sunday, 2008-08-10

jottthat's why i suggested to provide a recent freedesktop based s-m-i (maybe s-m-i-freedesktop)00:00
zapno, its because Nokia take the decision (and I can understand why) to not include the whole 1Mb freedesktop.xml in the default distro00:01
zapand as far as I understand their approach, every applications carries his MIME types with it00:01
*** herz1 has quit IRC00:01
timelyyou mean MBs of storage don't grow on trees?00:01
zapand thats what I'm trying to follow00:01
zapI mean NITs do everything to save space00:01
jottbut bzip2 does not acctually handle the mime type from a desktop perspective.00:03
*** philipl has quit IRC00:04
zapand tar does not provide a handler from desktop perspective00:04
zapand neverless, the debian tar package contains the mime type definition00:05
RST38hwait, gentlemen, what are you trying to do?00:05
jottzap: well it's mime type actually binds an action.00:05
RST38hI am looking at your discussion and it sounds like there is already a way to do what you want00:05
*** Free_maN has quit IRC00:06
jottit's not a type defintion00:06
zapjott: MIME type definitions don't define actions00:06
jottRST38h: it's more a design decision00:06
jottapplication/x-tar; /bin/tar tvf -; print=/bin/tar tvf - | print text/plain:-; copiousoutput00:06
jottapplication/x-gtar; /bin/tar tvzf -; print=/bin/tar tvzf - | print text/plain:-; copiousoutput00:06
jottthat's what's in your tar "mime type"00:06
RST38hjott: There is a directory with mime definitions and there is a directory with .desktop files00:06
jottRST38h: yes.00:07
RST38hjott: A mime definition simply says "file with this extension or content has this type"00:07
RST38hjott: The .desktop file says "this application supports these mime types"00:07
jottmy point is, an application that provides a mimetype *should* also provide the desktop00:07
RST38hoh...not necessarily00:07
RST38hwhat if there are multiple applications for a type (let us say .pdf)00:08
*** philipl has joined #maemo00:08
RST38hOR I may decide to add a mime type but not support it in the current app version00:08
jottthen we have a problem when there is no shared-mime-info00:08
jottwell actually not.00:09
RST38hwhat problem?00:09
jottok, to rephrase it. who should provide mime types?00:09
zapand who?00:10
jottin best case, a shared mime info given by the freedesktop standards.00:11
RST38hwhoever has intention to access files of these types00:11
jottor, in case of a single application, it should in a best case also provide the desktop00:11
jottRST38h: so it clutters?00:11
jottlike 20 apps handling the same type should all put the same mime info in there?00:12
jottor not even handling them from a desktop view00:12
zaplike I said, update-mime-types can cope with this00:12
zapit is *designed* to see several xml files that define same MIME info00:12
jotti never said it would not work.00:12
*** p| has joined #maemo00:13
RST38hjott: it may00:13
zapallright, look at the existing xml files in /usr/share/mime/packages/00:13
RST38hthere is no problem with it00:13
zapthey are all provided by some separate package that handles the respective format00:13
RST38hit is quite possible that multiple apps will be able to handle a type00:13
*** thopiekar has quit IRC00:14
jottRST38h: sure. my design question was, should all clutter mime or should one promote the official freedesktop standard.00:14
zapwhy you call that 'clutter'?00:14
RST38hprobably the first00:15
*** behdad has joined #maemo00:15
jott.. ok..00:15
RST38hbecause MIME has always assumed ability to add new private types00:15
zapbesides, my approach is to provide not only a MIME type, but icons for this file type00:15
RST38hif you only follow freedesktop you can't do that00:15
zapand thats will be a lot more than 1Mb... if it provides them all00:15
jottRST38h: sure. but those actually IN there? for new unsupported types thats perfectly fine.00:16
*** MangoFusion has quit IRC00:16
jottwe disagree and i don't think we will agree.00:16
jottit's ok.00:17
jotti accept your opinion.00:17
*** guardian has left #maemo00:17
*** Tanya has joined #maemo00:19
RST38hjott: well, having a default set of types probably wouldn't harm00:19
*** Tanya has left #maemo00:20
RST38hBut I do not see this as a very important feature, more like a neat thing to have00:20
jottRST38h: yeah well, it's actually already there in the just needs to be put in place ;)00:21
RST38hif it takes a lot of space in flash and/or takes long time to parse when loading, then it is a problem00:23
RST38hI have no idea why Nokia hasn't used it though00:23
jottjffs2 should compress it fairly well.00:23
timelyRST38h: did you talk to leonid?00:24
RST38htimely: yes. he seems to think it is adblock00:25
jottadblock slows the browser drastically down ...00:25
RST38hsays he is getting 5s to open a microb window00:25
RST38hwell, I can just test right now00:25
moontigeryes i second that with adblock and performance ... i uninstalled it00:25
timelyadblock is indeed a good guess00:25
timelyadblock on launch iirc will try to update all of its block lists00:26
timelyor something similarly stupid :)00:26
RST38honly if you ask for it00:26
jottmy startup times ~tripled.00:26
moontigerthats what i guessed was happening too00:26
* timely shrugs00:26
jott(with adblock installed)00:26
timelyanyway... thanks.. that's good. i'll make that point 5 in my "how to break microb and blame us"00:26
RST38hbut you are not getting any ads right?00:26
jottRST38h: right :)00:26
timelyi turn off image loading :)00:26
RST38htimely: do wait until I test it00:26
moontigerim happy with flashblock ... the other ads arent so heavy imo00:27
timelyRST38h: i wouldn't push until i got to work :)00:27
RST38htimely: In the meanwhile, looks like some (if not all) pages send browserd into a loop00:28
chellizap: the is still no fixed unrar-nonfree in diablo-extras-devel *puncturing-you-with-a-needle* ;-)00:29
zapyes, it is00:29
timelyRST38h: sadly i have bigger issues atm00:29
zapI'll fix it RSN00:29
RST38htimely: even bigger issues?00:29
*** matt_c has quit IRC00:29
timelya primary service i work on was disabled because it was killing its host00:29
RST38his it world peace? =)00:30
timelythe server is used my many developers and is the stage for a service used by most mozilla devs00:30
timelyit's also the upstream for a service used by maemo devs @nokia and mxr.maemo.org00:30
moontigerwhat was / is the service if i may ask?00:30
timelyi need to solve that before i play w/ anything else00:30
chellizap: (it is still 3.8.2-1maemo1 which has the size-mismatch) :)00:30
timelymoontiger: well, you can't see the down version :)00:30
moontigerheh right00:30 is the live one, is the maemo equiv00:30
moontigerwhat does it do?00:31
timelyif you can't figure that out at first, but figure it out later00:32
timelyi'm accepting patches to improve it so that you wouldn't have to ask00:32
timelyi really don't have time to answer. and it should be self explanatory00:32
moontigeri actually went and read the page ... now i get it ... sorry :|00:32

RST38hwhere do I find updated rtcomm components?00:34
moontigerso the service is bringing the server down because the indexing crawler(s) are too intensive?00:34
timelyi'm told it's actually the /source/ script00:35
timelywhich was recently "optimized" by adding caching00:35
timelybut i have no idea what's going wrong00:35
*** red-zack has joined #maemo00:35
GeneralAntillesAdBlock kills MicroB. Hosts/CSS is the way to block ads.00:35
timelyGeneralAntilles: what's the status on the bugs.maemo reorg?00:36
moontigerwonder if the caching tripped the swap file usage or something00:36
GeneralAntillestimely, no visible progress.00:36
GeneralAntillesThe logs from the bugzilla meeting are up.00:36
timelymoontiger: the process went over 1gb a couple of times00:36
RST38hdoes not kill microb for me00:36
timelyi have no idea00:36
GeneralAntillesBasically blocked by guenther's work on the templates at this point.00:36
*** Maximander has left #maemo00:36
timelythe last visit to source before it was killed was by msnbot ...00:37
* timely grumbles00:37
GeneralAntillestimely, bookmark
jottis there actually an explanation why adblock makes the microb startup so slow?00:37
RST38hit loads stuff00:38
GeneralAntillesI just got back from vacation, and haven't yet gotten back to sitting on people.00:38
timelyjott: there are a couple of profilers available if you want to try playing w/ them00:38
RST38hThe following packages have been kept back:00:38
RST38h  libbz2-1.0 libdb4.2 libglade2-0 libxml2 rtcom-beta-os200800:38
timelybest of all, i have no idea which of two mxr's was actually responsible for the death00:38
jottRST38h: yeah but SO slow?..00:38
RST38hAny ideas of what would be holding back these?00:38
*** gentooer has quit IRC00:38
moontigerwow sounds like fun ... not00:38
RST38hjott: it is JavaScript00:38
jottRST38h: still shouldn't be that slow if done right :)00:39
lbtanyone know about mounting jffs2 on mtd devices? I'm getting jffs2_scan_eraseblock(): Magic bitmask 0x1985 not found at 0x07f40aa8: 0x0104 instead00:39
timelymoontiger: and of course, there's no guarantee that the last request was actually the cause of death... it's just a more likely candidate00:39
moontigerjott: depends on the implemntation of the hpptrequests in the browser code i guess00:39
GeneralAntillesI'd rather seen AdBlock taken down, personally. So many newbies install it and then blame the resulting slowness on MicroB. . . .00:40
moontigertimely: yah00:40
*** Blastur has joined #maemo00:40
jaskabut browsing on such a small display with ads its... frustrating, unless you limit yourself to known-good sites00:40
* GeneralAntilles should maybe talk krisse into doing a Tablet School article on ad blocking00:40
GeneralAntillesjaska, hosts/css00:40
Blasturanyone know if its possible to connect a joystick to the n810?00:41
timelymoontiger: it wasn't a good experience, the box admin just "killed" the files00:41
jottbut with hosts  you can't block .. :/00:41
Blasturi mean, does it supply enough power00:41
timelyand didn't send me an email00:41
timelyhe figured i'd "notice eventually"00:41
moontigerwow nice!00:41
moontigerwhat a great guy00:42
timelyit turns out there are a series of cron jobs that did start yelling at me00:42
timelyso i looked, and indeed the directories were missing00:42
timelybut no hint as to where they went or why (or who killed / moved them)00:42
timelyoh, and it was friday, and i was about to turn into a pumpkin00:42
GeneralAntillesjott, that's where CSS comes in.00:42
timelyanyway... i got him, and he thankfully moved them to ~timeless/00:42
timelyso they're not lost *phew*00:43
moontigerso this is indexing and xref'ing the maemo stuff?00:43
jottGeneralAntilles: yeah well... i would rather have a sane adblock ;)00:43
timelymoontiger: the one does, yes00:43
*** maddlah has joined #maemo00:43
timelynote that it's somewhat still, the hosting provider there ran into an issue w/ their file system store and until that's fixed, i shouldn't push updates00:44
*** maddlah has quit IRC00:44
timelywe kinda suspect my data was the ton of bricks (they're like straw) that broke the camel's back :(00:44
*** maddler has quit IRC00:44
*** maddler has joined #maemo00:44
moontigerhow much data did u generate?00:45
*** madha1 has left #maemo00:45
jottdoes greasemonkey for mircob "work" or has it similar problems as adblock?00:46
timelymoontiger: well, the indexes in some cases are 1/2 gb each :)00:47
timelybut mostly it's the sources themselves are gbs (say 22 in one case)00:47
moontigerwow thats a lot of data to be moving around00:47
timelyno kidding :)00:47
timelyand for added fun, i'm behind a firewall00:48
timelywhich means i get to use rsync + ssh tunneling00:48
timelyoh, and i can never find the right command when i need it :)00:48
RST38htimely: 6.48 with browserd running and adblock disabled00:48
GeneralAntillesjott, somewhat similar to adblock last time I tried.00:49
GeneralAntillesThe page renders normally, then the GreaseMonkey scripts are applied and the page is re-rendered. :\00:50
RST38htimely: 8.73 without browserd and without adblock00:50
timelyRST38h: much closer to our targets00:50
timelynow you understand why we were mistified?00:50
timelynot perfect, it's supposed to be <5 iirc00:50
timelymystified ?00:51
* timely sighs00:51
jottGeneralAntilles: :(00:51
* GeneralAntilles throws lots of grenades at the browser team to mistify them.00:52
timelyGeneralAntilles: i'm almost done reading the log00:52
*** henrique has joined #maemo00:53
RST38htimely: still <3sec difference00:55
RST38hso it looks like you are wasting memory for browserd to gain <3sec load time difference00:55
timelygetting it into that 5s window was really a requriement00:56
timelyplus there's a slightly more interesting point00:56
timelybrowserd has multiple consumers00:56
moontigeris it not possible for the adblock plugin to defer updating the lists until a few seconds after the browser has loaded00:56
timelyperhaps mail or chat or the tutorial00:56
timelyand we don't want those apps to crash just because gecko does00:56
timelyGeneralAntilles: so where's the blog? i want to subscribe to bugjar00:57
timelyalso, did sjgadsby put in the old jar entries?00:57
timelybecause there's nothing that says a blog can't have old content00:57
RST38hoh, one browserd can serve multiple clients?00:57
jottmoontiger: it actually does not need to do automatic updates at all.... well once a month would more than suffice.00:58
GeneralAntillestimely, I never got a URL.00:58
moontigerjott: so why does it do that by default??00:58
GeneralAntillesI don't think he ever followed up to get it onto planet, either.00:58
jottmoontiger: don't ask me :)00:58
timelyRST38h: try the tutorial. afair it is a browserd client00:58
moontigerheh :)00:58
timelyi can't remember any others00:58
timelybut i know internally there are plans for a couple of others00:59
timelyno guarantees of release cycles or anything :)00:59
jottmoontiger: probably because it's an 1:1 port from the desktop version, with just the xul ui removed ;)00:59
jott(and maybe an extra delay added :P01:00
moontigerjott: right ... *laughs*01:00
timelythere's no guarantee of quality w/ the -extras ports01:00
timelyin fact, there's a history of some major bugs in them :)01:00
lbtis jffs2 endian01:00
timelylbt: jffs2 isn't the future as you can see from #maemo logs and itt :)01:01
jotttimely: you should slap people and enforce quality :)01:01
GeneralAntillesJust as well that Browser Extras isn't in Extras.01:01
lbtit may not be the future01:01
jotttimely: just slap then then ;)01:01
lbtbut Chinook comes with it01:01
lbtand I want to take the chinook jffs2 and put it on my nit01:02
moontigerchinook isnt the future either tho is it?01:02
timelylbt: can chinook boot off an mmc running ext2?01:02
GeneralAntillesChinook is quite clearly the past.01:02
jotttimely: yes.01:02
lbtI'll let you know01:02
lbtOTOH I'd like my app to work on chinook01:02
timelypretend jffs2 doesn't exist, and move along w/ life01:02
lbtso I want a chinook image to test01:02
lbtOK - tell me how to setup multiboot...01:03
timelyfwiw, i'm generally not opposed to dwelling in the past, i run 10.3.9 after all :)01:03
lbtI want to extract from jffs201:03
timely(and various old versions of Maemo)01:03
lbtmy script on that page results in executables that say01:03
* jott prepares an shiny exploit package for timely01:03
lbtooh... chroot /mnt/chinook/ /bin/sh.... chroot: cannot execute /bin/sh: Exec format error01:04

lbtI wondered about corruption during the rsync01:06
lbtbut the config files in etc are OK01:06
jottwindows line endings? :)01:06
lbtI don't have that OS on any of my machines01:06
lbtbut that's not to say...01:07
jottjust a blind guess ..01:07
lbt's fair01:07
lbtI used the script on the page I linked to get the files into my chinook partition01:07
lbtbut the executables don't execute01:08
jott"I used this script (which doesn't work yet)" haha wiki fin :)01:08
lbtI get Exec format errors01:08

timelywhat's it say?01:08
lbthold on01:08
lbtchroot: cannot execute /bin/sh: Exec format error01:09
lbtwhich is where it all began....01:09
lbtand I went down the "is jffs2 endian rabbit hole"01:09
lbtthen I checked ./etc/ and the files there are OK01:09
GeneralAntillestimely, I tried to provoke some discussion on that during the meeting with lame results.01:09
* GeneralAntilles pokes andre____ with a sharpened stick.01:10
timelyGeneralAntilles: the pages don't seem to work in safari 1.x01:10
timelyone of them worked in ff201:10
lbtshould Chinook work on a Diablo kernel?01:10
GeneralAntillesApache threads are segfaulting in the wiki01:10
lbtor rather a diablo initfs01:11
GeneralAntillesBasically waiting on the server upgrades for a fix at this point. . . .01:11
GeneralAntilleslbt, probably01:11
GeneralAntillesNo guarantees, though.01:11
lbtand there's no kexec yet01:11
timelyoh youch01:12
timelylbt: probably not the whole thing01:12
timelybut busybox should either give you a useful error or work if the binary is proper01:12
lbtthe other thing that made me wonder was my host gave a lot of these errors when I loopback mounted the jffs2 rootfs to get the chinook image off01:12
lbtjffs2_scan_eraseblock(): Magic bitmask 0x1985 not found at 0x07f48024: 0xa4db instead01:12
timelyit's a way to test for file corruption01:12
lbtI agree timely01:13
jottlbt: that does not sound sane.01:13
lbtI suspect the loopback mount isn't right01:13
timelyand yeah, "that sounds BAD"01:13
lbtand hence I wondered if it was endian01:13
lbtand I think that's where I came in :D01:13
timelyit seems like my biggest consumer on friday was msnbot01:13
jottnow microsoft has all of the maemo code :O01:14
jottok, the open parts ;)01:14
lbtI also found this quote on a Gentoo page :The image is an Little Endian jffs2 image. To mount it on Big Endian architectures (like PowerPC) it'll have to be converted:01:14
timelymy other consumer was a libwww-perl script trying to exploit some service01:14
lbtand, IINM the arm is a different endian to the x8601:14
lbtbut I'm not sure01:14
jottlbt: maemo is armel.01:14
timelyjott: it was spidering mozilla not maemo01:14
lbtarmel -endian little?01:14
jotttimely: ah so they have firefox now ;)01:15
lbtsame as x86?01:15
lbtok - so it's not that...01:15
* lbt goes digging for shiney things again...01:15
jottlbt: maybe the jffs2 version is incompatible.01:15
lbtI'm on 2.6.27-rc201:16
lbtso maybe01:16
lbtI was just looking for mount options -01:16
lbtthe mtd2block driver01:16
lbthas options to set the erase size01:16
jotthehe -o justfcknwork01:16
lbtso I need to find out how the jffs2 image was made01:16
lbtI wish it would!!01:17
lbtI *WILL* make it01:17
jottisn't there some tool that can just extract a jffs2 image?01:17
lbtI've seen01:17
lbtbut I want it to mount dammit01:17
lbtthe source for block2mtd (IIRC) suggests that the erasesize is adjustable01:18
lbtI think it's an undocumented feature passed in after a ,01:19
*** henrique has quit IRC01:19
jottlbt: have you googled for your error? gives quite some results :)01:20
lbtyes - they didn't seem helpful01:20
lbtI think it is just corruption - but I'm not 100% sure01:20
lbtthe 'services' file in mnt/chinook/etc terminates abruptly at ircd            6667/tcp                        # Internet Relay01:22

GeneralAntillesqwerty12, dunno, but you can have one of my patented Team Sharpened Poking Sticks if you want. ;)12:33
qwerty12GeneralAntilles, Thanks12:33
qwerty12X-Fade, I'm poking you with GeneralAntilles's patented Team Sharpened Poking Stick12:34
deckelqwerty12: not present, but installing the bootmenu worked without.12:34
qwerty12deckel, then, alas, it's not an alternative12:34
roadiesGeneralAntilles or mikkov_:  hummmm tried to "install" extra-devel from the URL link on the wiki and it fails with app incompatible....any idea ?12:34
deckelqwerty12: but it is shown as a replacement by apt-get.12:35
qwerty12deckel, but if it lacks the tools to format an ext2 partition, then I do not see it as an alternative12:35
deckelqwerty12: me neither, just wanted to say that this was shown to me.12:36
GeneralAntillesdeckel, you actually don't need e2fsprogs for bootmenu12:36

Stskeepsqwerty12: well, i'm just curious if it would be possible to put bootmenu.conf on the firmware image instead (in /, not initfs)12:51
GeneralAntillesroadies, I don't have the access.12:51

roadiesGeneralAntilles: when U do find him tell him, a poor slob is flapping in the wind with loose we say here12:53
GeneralAntillesdeckel, wait it out, or, maybe, bug Robot101 if you're particularly impatient.12:54
GeneralAntillesroadies, it's a 5 character fix. ;)12:54
Stskeepsqwerty12: well, i don't have an actual crash right now, just probing hypothetical situation that would mess up a initfs that loads its configuration from another FS than initfs12:54
liriI'm guessing the common thing people do with their N810 is to clone the root partition to the 2gb partition. what do you do with the 256mb?12:58
Stskeepsmy idea is to have a initfs bootmenu.conf that just indicates which partition / filesystem and options to find the real "bootmenu" on.. for versions less than diablo it would be /dev/mtdblock4 for instance12:58

GeneralAntillesWe're talking about two different things13:02
GeneralAntillesYou usually don't use the built-in flash when you boot from SD.13:03
qwerty12roadies, the date on one of those files is 2005 :/. I'd just dpkg -i the openvpn file and then apt-get -f install13:03
liriGeneralAntilles: ahh?13:03
liriGeneralAntilles: I can use the entire 2gb sd card as the root partition and put swap on the built-in flash.13:04
*** housetier has joined #maemo13:04
GeneralAntillesYou could make that work, yes.13:04
GeneralAntillesI'd just format the 2GB with two partitions, myself, though.13:05
chelliroadies: what are you trying to do? openvpn is available in extra(-devel)13:05
liriI haven't done anything yet, I currently have the root partition on the 256mb flash and I'd like to 1. clone it cause I need more space and 2. put a swap file/partition as I read in ITT that it's an incredible improvement13:06

lirithe clone OS script for a 2gb sd card uses the scheme of 128 swap, 128 fat and 128 for root partition. wouldn't it be more useful to create a 256mb swap partition?14:14

timelyum, how much ram do you have on your device?14:14
timelysome linux configurations can't really do particularly well w/ more swap than ram14:15

zach_Is it possible to format an sd card via usb on a desktop from a n800?21:16
dannymzach_: you mean the SD card is in the N800 and the N800 is in device mode, connected to the PC... and you want the PC to "format" it?21:17
zach_i mounted my n800 on my desktop...umounted and did "mkdosfs /dev/sdcard"21:17
zach_on my desktop21:18
dannymzach_: yeah, should work.21:18
zach_it deleted my files and shows up as "vfat"21:18

* qwerty12_N800 hopes uk police broadcast on japanese fm radio frequencies21:26
dannymzach_: check "dmesg" output whether it's already misdetecting the device itself or whether it's messing up the filesystem.21:27
dannympupnik: Wien has a lot of trees and clean water (very clean water) and as such doesn't feel as "concrete desert" as, say, [parts of] Munich...21:27
dannympupnik: note that a lot of buildings are old (as in OOOLD) so be careful when choosing a residence :D21:28
