Stskeepsyou have no idea how many times i've screwed up :)00:18
GeneralAntillesWe should really take away your license to hack at some point. :P00:19
Stskeeps10 years of hacking in public and it hasn't happened yet00:19
Stskeeps.. even though i did have some hillarious bugs00:20
Stskeepslike, an IRCd going on a killing spree and /kill'ing the entire network00:20
Stskeepscos of a parsing error00:20
Stskeepsthat was times..00:20
Stskeepsnow i'm in pervasive healthcare instead. ponder that.00:20
^Tux^times was when I found a bug in bahamut00:20
^Tux^told devels00:20
^Tux^they issued a "fix" that was shit00:21
^Tux^then went back and started killing dalnet00:21
^Tux^I think I still have my "bahamut-fuck" alias bound00:21
Meiz_n810nitdroid would be nice with dualboot and working wifi00:24
Stskeepsmm, solca's selector will be nice to have00:24

StskeepsMeiz_n810: got a new camera or a steady cam? you move it like a robot.00:25
Stskeeps.. or just zoom00:25
Meiz_n810not zoom, not robot, not my hand00:26
t_s_oah, no phone is complete without a snake game. thats what made those early nokia gsm's so hot ;)00:26
StskeepsMeiz_n810: pretty neat though00:27
Stskeepsjust goes to show how versatile this device is00:27
Meiz_n810it is nice, but still not replacing maemo00:27
Meiz_n810crashing at the end is cool :)00:27
StskeepsMeiz_n810: but yeah.. maemo needs to shape up similar to that to compete i guess00:28
t_s_oheh, yellow out rather then white out, nice00:28
StskeepsMeiz_n810: wtf @ the last thing showing on screen00:29
Meiz_n810fadeout is always different color :)00:29

Meiz_n810fuck my english skills00:31

Meiz_n810what about when you were 14?00:33
* Meiz_n810 hates his slow internet connection00:34
Meiz_n810(the slowness, not the connection :P)00:35
Stskeeps14 wasn't much better. :P00:36
Meiz_n810android itself does not die when fading away, the userspace just crashes00:37
Meiz_n810i am able to run reboot from computer :)00:37
suihkulokkit_s_o: they have a 3d snakes as a free downloadable game for current symbian phones00:38
Stskeepsi think the main motivation for having a later kernel on n8x0s for me, is so RNDIS works.. :P00:38
t_s_onot surprised ;)00:38

GeneralAntillesEr, HSPA rather01:55
GeneralAntillesBut I didn't mean HSDPA01:55
*** eichi__ has quit IRC01:56

GeneralAntillesIt'll be faster than EVDO, anyway.01:56
Knowledgepfft...that would be wonderful, I think EVDO is awesome...granted my carrier just got it about a month ago01:56

Knowledgewow man, technology has come a far way if you really think about it....from huge computers to something that fits in your pocket...01:59
soapthe trick will be to sell your current tablet exactly one day before the announcement.  ;)01:59
KnowledgeNo word is what it's going to be called huh?01:59
GeneralAntillessoap, why sell?02:00
GeneralAntillesKnowledge, nope.02:00
Stskeepswe'll be opening a betting pool on the announcement date02:00
Knowledgeright, I still have a 770, which is actually beeping at me because the battery is poor neglected 77002:00
GeneralAntillessoap, I used my old ones as remotes, ebook readers or couch browsers02:00
soapGeneralAntilles, I, for one, can not afford to own both at the same time.  (and suspect I am not alone in that situation.)02:00
soapI already own too many DAPs.  Don't need to start compulsively collecting tablets as well.  ;)02:01
*** corq-FL has quit IRC02:01
KnowledgeMan, I keep buying phones to get them to do what my 770 does, but I always end up going back to my 770. And even though I haven't touched my 770 in a long long time...I use my HTC Titan to browse the net, or do simple stuff and think "man, my 770 would whoop this things pitoot"02:02
*** ^Tux^ has quit IRC02:04
GeneralAntillesYou think the 770 would kick something's ass, you need to try an OMAP2 tablet. . . .02:04
Knowledgebut I really think there should be a better way/place to get apps...02:04
Knowledgelet me joojle02:04
GeneralAntillesN8x002:05 and Extras. . . .02:05
Knowledgeoh, yeah...that...I dunno man, there's something about the 810 that I just don't for the 800, I sold it to go back to my 77002:05
GeneralAntillesThat's a . . . bizarre choice.02:06
KnowledgeI just couldn't stand looking at it...02:06
GeneralAntillesThat's an awful strong aesthetic hate. :\02:06
Knowledgeit looked toooooo.......I dunno how to describe it tried to hard to be main stream02:06
*** soap is now known as soap_02:07
Knowledgewith the silver and shiny trim etc...02:07
Knowledgeawww don't tell me the new one is going to resemble it...I gotta tell ya, I wouldn't care if that thing could spawn money for you, I wouldn't take it. I really hated the 800...weird I know...02:08
StskeepsKnowledge: people here are mostly maemo community, not getting revenue in any way ;)02:09
GeneralAntillesWe don't know what it'll look like.02:09
soap_as long as it looks like more flash, more RAM, and more CPU I'm happy.02:10
GeneralAntillesMore CPU it'll have. <_<02:10
GeneralAntilles2 or 3 times more.02:11
GeneralAntillesThere seems to be a remote chance of it having 512MB of RAM.02:11

KnowledgeWow, 8GB SDHC for the 770? I've gotta dedicate a few hours tomorrow to catching up...02:22
* Stskeeps hopes to target 770 with mer too02:22
GeneralAntillesStskeeps, the 770 is fscking slow02:23
l7man, the n97 looks so cool02:23
StskeepsGeneralAntilles: yeah, but did you see the vid the guy who's 770 died to get deblet on it?02:23
Stskeepsit wasn't directly bad02:23
l7i wonder how many similiarities the n97 and n900 will have02:23
GeneralAntillesl7, Symbian sucks.02:23
GeneralAntillesl7, well, they wont be sharing a CPU anyway.02:24
Knowledgeyea, the 770 is slow...02:24
l7GeneralAntilles: why? it seems like a decent choice if you want an open-ish phone environment02:24
l7i suppose you could also try some of the Motorola Linux phones02:24
GeneralAntillesl7, there isn't a single phone OS that interests me.02:24
GeneralAntillesl7, I mean, if I'm paying $700 for a phone, it better be a helluva lot more interesting than Symbian. ;)02:25
l7heh there is that02:25
l7i couldn't find an openssh sever for symbian anywhere02:25
Stskeepssymbian is a bit different creature is it? for openssh :P02:26
rukbatopenssh is not very portable02:26
l7it's not the most important feature in a phone02:27
Knowledgefor 700 dollars, it better come with a bj...02:27
rukbateven the linux version needs a good size library to make things look like bsd02:27
l7but i have gotten used to shelling into my tablet for all sorts of stuff02:27
Knowledgequick question...OS2007, BT PAN possible?02:27
Stskeepswasn't the something about BT version in 770?02:28
l7700 is about the same price as an unlocked iphone, though the n97's hardware does seem better02:28
l7if only the n900 could function as a phone too02:29
GeneralAntillesI'd actually be interested to see how that might perform.02:29
l7it's a little difficult to recieve calls with voip isn't it?02:29
Knowledgedamn it no BT PAN.02:30
GeneralAntillesl7, how do you mean?02:30
l7seems like it would almost always go to voicemail when someone calls you02:30
GeneralAntillesVoIP can be 100% transparent to the user.02:30
GeneralAntillesEr, why?02:30
l7how would you answer unless you had a network connection?02:30
GeneralAntilles3g. . . .02:30
*** Pio_ has quit IRC02:31
KnowledgeSimultanious Voice and Data?02:31
GeneralAntillesVoIP over 3G02:32
l7if 3g stays connected all the time, i guess it would work02:32
KnowledgeSimultaneous I meant02:32
GeneralAntillesKnowledge, the N900 is data-only02:32
GeneralAntillesVoIP is just more data02:32
KnowledgeWell, EVDO (tethered) you could do voice and data...02:32
l7it is kind of a cool idea, if you could just get a good data only plan02:33
GeneralAntillesl7, I've been wondering about that02:33
KnowledgeI have 2 phones with the same ESN (yes yes, I know illegal)....I tethered with one, and called with the other...and it worked....but incoming still doesn't work02:33
GeneralAntillesI think you can get a $30/mo plan from AT&T02:33
l7hrm, that's not a bad deal02:33
*** yerga has quit IRC02:33
l7i've heard AT&T's network coverage lags a bit behind Sprint and verizon02:34
l7but if you in a metro area it should be okay02:34

KnowledgeAnother question...2007 = diablo?02:35
Knowledgedamn it.02:35
GeneralAntillesDiablo is Maemo 4.102:35

KnowledgeI can't remember what I flashed onto my 77002:37

Stskeepsprobably chinook HE02:38
woglindeKnowledge hm there is one small error with pan and smartphones like htc02:38
l7hmm, i wonder what kind of fancy tricks you could pull with an asterix server, voip and an n90002:38
Knowledgewoglinde: what is the error?02:39
woglindeKnowledge maemo will think its pda02:40
woglindeand will not allow you do make inet connection over it02:40

timelesswho cares?04:32
benhwoul be nice to have a decent 3d engine04:32

RST38hAStorm: In my case browserd did not swap (I had swap off) but basically used 100% CPU10:02
RST38hOnce it goes into this kind of cardiac arrest, killing it of basically takes an ssh login + kill10:03
AStormI get to restart it to have browser running10:03
* RST38h even remembers playing with process priorities but it did not help10:03
GeneralAntillesRST38h, I've yet to have an issue like that with normal browsing.10:03
RST38hAStorm: That is because you kill the wrong browserd10:03
AStormweb doesn't restart it10:03
RST38hGeneral: Greatly depends on the sites you are visiting10:04
AStormhow do I restart it?10:04
GeneralAntillesPlease don't file another "bug" like that in the future, though. :\10:04
AStormI hupped it10:04
RST38hAStorm: Look at the process list. You will see two browserds, one small another big10:04

AStormhow do I restart the small one then?10:04
RST38h  /usr/bin/browserd ? :)10:05
RST38hGeneral: It is a valid bug report for a valid issue10:05
AStormweird, which didn't show it10:05
RST38hGeneral: The only reason why I will not file another one like this is because I now believe that Nokia engineers don't give a fuck10:05
GeneralAntillesRST38h, it's nothing of the sort.10:06
RST38hGeneral: There is another report that is probably going to have similar outcome:
AStormok, so, what args do I give to it?10:06
GeneralAntillesIt's criticizing an architecture choice with specious arguments.10:06
AStorm(it should have an init script, meh)10:07
RST38hGeneral: Well, it is evidently wrong architecture choice10:07
RST38hHas to be fixed10:07
GeneralAntillesRST38h, clearly Nokia doesn't agree.10:07
RST38hGeneral: Experimental results are not a matter of agreement10:07
AStormarchitecture is ok, but leaks are not10:07
GeneralAntillesAs it's rare that one person is always right about everything, it then comes down to a disagreement over use cases.10:07
RST38hGeneral: Leaks memory. Hard to kill. Shaves 3 seconds off load time.10:08
AStormand unless browserd is leakfree, it will be problematic10:08
GeneralAntillesYes, AStorm, bugs that are bugs should be fixed.10:08
AStormwell, normal microb took more memory10:08
RST38hGeneral: Once again: I have measured the advantage browserd give. It is 3 seconds.10:08
GeneralAntillesRST38h, if you want to file a bug report, do so, but whining about architecture choices isn't what bugzilla is for.10:08
AStormRST38h, and starting browser took 3s more10:09
GeneralAntillesRST38h, personally, that's an advantage I'll take gladly.10:09
RST38hGeneral: Ok, let s approach it from the other direction10:09
RST38hAStorm: Those 3 secs were the whole point of switching to browserd10:09
AStormagain, what args is browserd started woth?10:09
RST38hprolly without if it is the first process10:09
GeneralAntillesRST38h, you also realize that browserd will be used for more things than just the browser, right?10:10
AStormlike, applets?10:10
GeneralAntillesWhich would end up reducing RAM usage in the long run, particularly with certain use cases10:10
RST38hGeneral: No. Isn't it called BROWSERd? :)10:10
GeneralAntillesAStorm, right.10:10
AStorm... could be called xulrunnerd10:10
AStormso don't complain :P10:11
RST38hGeneral, it will not reduce the RAM usage. Think about it a bit more.10:11
AStormit might, a bit10:11
AStormby saving on data structures10:11
RST38hThe proof here is very simple10:11
RST38hNot a bit10:11
GeneralAntillesAnyway, I'm not really interested in having this discussion again.10:11
RST38hLet us approach it from a different direction10:11
AStormlike cookie tables, history, etc.10:11
RST38hWe have got flash plugin that runs inside browserd10:12
AStormand cache index10:12
RST38hIt has got this nice feature of waiting in a busy loop doing gettimeofday()10:12
AStormRST38h, yup, that is wrong10:12
RST38hWho isi responsible for fixing it?10:12
AStormit should run in a subprocess10:12
AStormyes, Adobe10:12
RST38hAStorm: Think of it: all these things, cache, cookies, history  do they go away once you switch to browserd? :)10:12
AStormit could be worked around like Opera does10:12
AStormRST38h, they're not duplicated10:13
RST38hOk. So, you have got a flash plugin that hangs your tablet hard.10:13
RST38hYou can't easily kill it because it is run from browserd10:13
RST38hYou can't file a bug report on it because Nokia is not responsible10:13
AStormthe latter is a bug10:13
RST38hYou can't file bug report with Adobe because Adobe also does not give a fuck10:13
AStormI mean, it shouldn't be run from browserd process10:13
AStormbut a subprocess, like a sandbox10:13
RST38hWhat is the preferred course of action here?10:14
AStormafaicr, new xulrunner supports that10:14
x29a_chrome would not allow a flash to kill the whole device ;)10:14
*** x29a_ is now known as x29a10:14
RST38hAStorm: Ideally, it should be a subprocess with low priority10:14
RST38hChrome would do it by itself instead? =)10:14
AStormx29a, yup, firefox 3 can do that10:14
x29afrom what i read, it implements the sandbox approach10:14
AStormat least somewhat10:14

Stskeepsand what i'm reading so far in your blog i agree with, had some similar thoughts23:03
StskeepsMeiz_n810: hmm. i'll look into that23:03
Stskeepsm-vo: i agree fully - sb2 should be as minimal as possible. it should only provide handy wrappers for some key interpreters/compilers, and besides that, get out of the way..23:04
Stskeepsand just try to accelerating the rootstrap with native components23:05
m-voStskeeps: Yeah, if you get to the end, it is all pretty simple.  I was afraid the cross compiler needs some major magic, but some -I and -L options seems to be enough.23:05
*** simon_ has quit IRC23:05
m-vosb2 could be much simpler out of the box still.23:05
m-voAnd a lot less specific.23:06
Stskeepsyeah, i think i'll play a bit with that. sb2 seems like a good idea but it does interfere a bit too much in some key areas23:06
Stskeepsit should basically be possible to take whatever rootstrap, slap a acceleration mapping on top, and compile away inside the rootstrap :P23:06
*** aantn has quit IRC23:06
Stskeepsin deblet we had good experience with simply distccing to a cross compiler23:07
Stskeepsit didn't get in the way and did what it should23:07
m-voThere is also the intersting idea of qemu somehow producing the native binaries on the fly...23:07
m-voQemu as an emulator is probably not very high-tech.23:07
m-voSb2 should basically be a chroot-plus-bind-mounts-without-the-need-to-be-root.23:09
m-voOr we could just all switch to GNU/Hurd! :-)23:09
Stskeepsi saw a qemu-arm chroot patch, could have been interesting, if it was possible to intermix native and foreign binaries23:11

Stskeepsheh, the only releases that matter to me are tags on svn ;)23:16
m-voI don't like that, and we are really suffering because of not having public beta releases, but those are the rules...23:16
GeneralAntillesHopefully Nokia pulls its head out of its own ass before it's too late.23:18
m-voBut, the time from cutting a release of the OS to when it actually hits the servers is pretty long.  So, if I would release the catpo changes now, it would not surprise me when there is a SSU coming out after that that doesn't include the catpo changes.23:18
