pupnikHappy New Year!  Check out an INCREDIBLE 4096-byte directX9 demo  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I5CTFMuFvb0   http://pouet.net/prod.php?which=5293800:01
SpeedEvilno00:02
ptlSpeedEvil: and that's it? there are no real, deep differences from ipv6 that make it much better to mobiles than ipv4?00:05
ptldon't say that, my world will crumble.00:05
RST38hno00:05
SpeedEvilptl: As I understand it, yes, in principle there are features of IPV6 that if implemented widely over the whole internet would be useful for mobiles.00:06
SpeedEvilptl: But we're not there yet.00:06
ptldo you know at least a couple of these features?00:06
SpeedEvilSorry - not doing this now - going to eat chicken.00:07
Venemopupnik: nice vid.00:07
*** pupnik_ has joined #maemo00:07
Venemopupnik: happy new year to you too00:07
ptlhappy new year to you guys. Here we still have 4 hours to go. :)00:07

Venemoptl: google and wikipedia are your friends00:08
ptlI swear it, I've tried00:09
ptli am asking here as a last resource00:09
ptlWell, almost last resource. If I don't get the answer I'll delve into some long texts to see if I can find it out.00:10
Venemoptl: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ipv6#Comparison_to_IPv400:10
*** kthomas_vh has quit IRC00:10
Venemoptl: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ipv6#Mobility00:10
Venemoptl: it took 1 minute to find these00:10

*** marciom has joined #maemo00:12
*** PhonicUK3 has quit IRC00:12
*** marciom has left #maemo00:12
VenemoBCMM: provided that you have ipv6 and support for this feautre in the 3g network and the wifi network, then in theory yes00:13
Venemohowever I dunno the details. I didn't know about this feaure 5 minutes ago :P00:13
*** kthomas_vh has joined #maemo00:14
ptlVenemo: anyway, there are lots of differences that I knew of, but on this particular page the only thing quoted for mobile advantagens is a small advantage of mobile ipv6 over mobile ipv4:00:15
ptl"Unlike mobile IPv4, mobile IPv6 avoids triangular routing and is therefore as efficient as native IPv6. IPv6 routers may also support network mobility which allows entire subnets to move to a new router connection point without renumbering."00:15
ptlthanks for the reference. It helped.00:16
ptlI am starting to think that there is not really much more than this.00:16
BCMMpresumably, by "triangular routing", they mean that mobile ipv4 has everything going to the device go through a machine with a fixed network location?00:16
Venemowhat makes you think that the other points in the comparison are not advantageous to mobile use cases?00:16
BCMMthe issue of address space has become particularly relevant to mobiles00:18
BCMMsince mobile networks are the ISPs most likely to NAT their networks00:18
VenemoBCMM: agreed00:18
BCMMipv6 would remove that necessity00:18
VenemoBCMM: my comment was intended to ptl00:18
BCMMptl?00:19
Venemoyes.00:19
BCMMsome say it's a good thing, because you don't waste battery on people scanning your phone, but ipv6 also makes it impractical to scan random addresses00:19
Venemo[23:16] <ptl> I am starting to think that there is not really much more than this. ---> this00:19
BCMMhaving a botnet scan the entire ipv4 address space is feasible; this will never work with ipv600:19
Venemo:D00:19
ptlpoints: 'larger address space' - the most obvious. but I was asking to 'discount' it. 'multicast' - what is the specific advantage for mobiles? I can't see. 'stateless autoconfiguration' - this one might be a good point of discussion, but it would require special help by using a mobile ipv6 tunnel, isn't it?00:20
SpeedEvilBCMM: Never say never00:20
ptl'mandatory support for network layer security' - doesn't seem to be much advantageous to mobile phones.00:20
Venemoptl: so security is not important for phones. right.00:20
ptl'simplified process by routers' - might help on mobile ipv6, indirectly.00:20
Venemolol00:20
ptlI didn't say that00:20
ptlI should have mentioned: 'specifically'00:21
BCMMSpeedEvil: by the time we have colonised enough planets to scratch the surface of the address space, we'll need a more delay-tolerant system that the current internet00:21
ptl'options extensibility' and 'jumbograms' - doesn't seem useful.00:21
*** Meizirkki has joined #maemo00:21
ptlLemme rephrase my question then:00:21
BCMMptl: having your own IP address will be advantageous00:21
BCMMfor a start, video chat will suddenly get much, much simpler00:22
ptlare there any features or architecture in ipv6 that can be said to specifically benefit mobile devices, and not so much regular devices like desktop computers and servers?00:22
ptlBCMM: but that falls into larger address space00:22
ptlyes, I agree00:22
Venemoptl: the answer to that is probably no00:22
*** Meizirkki_ has quit IRC00:22
BCMMptl: so far, the address space issue is affecting mobiles worst of all00:24
ptlit stateless autoconfiguration used in mobile ipv6?00:24
BCMMthough if we carry on like this, NAT ISPs will become the norm00:24
*** Andy80 has joined #maemo00:25
Venemowhat's wrong with NAT?00:26
ds3NAT doesn't allow for listeners unless specifically setup for it00:26
BCMMpractically, it breaks stuff and requires endless working around. philosophically, it makes the internet one-way like a TV00:27
*** lardman has joined #maemo00:27
jacekowskiand who needs listeners00:27
lardmanre00:27
BCMMthere are all sorts of reasons to listen to ports00:27
* lardman wonders what necroplayer is00:27
BCMMlike anything involving p2p communication00:27
ptlNot only that, NAT spoils ICMP and other protocols too.00:27
BCMMbouncing stuff off some server that is probably in a different country is OK for IM, but terrible for video chat00:28
BCMMalso, you might want to SSH to your phone for any number of reasons00:28
ds3UDP does not work reliably with NAT either :P00:29
Venemook, thx :)00:29

jacekowskinat on mobile phones is a must00:33
jacekowskiotherwise you would have all shit on internet sending you crap00:34
jacekowskiand your phone would never sleep00:34
SpeedEvilIn principle, some sort of authorisation would also work.00:36
*** FIQ has quit IRC00:36
SpeedEvilSo someone could sign packets with a key you've given them, and tehy would be passed by the router00:37
*** FIQ has joined #maemo00:37
ds3my phone works fine w/o NAT00:38
jacekowskiit just eats battery like mad00:40
DocScrutinizer51yep00:40
RST38hSpeed: that is called "ip addressing scheme" :)00:42
ShadowJKI don't get too much traffic from the internet usually00:43
*** chx has quit IRC00:43
RST38hNot for your subnet -> you are not getting it00:43
ShadowJKOnly about twice a month someone tries bruteforce ssh00:43
New_n900_UserSo the TV-out is that supposed to "just work" when I plug the cables in? Or is there somepace I have to turn it on?00:43
RST38hhehe00:43
RST38hShould work, but do set pal/ntsc00:43
New_n900_UserUS is NTSC right?00:43
RST38hHave you managed reflashing poor device?00:43
RST38hyes, US is NTSC00:43
New_n900_UserYes, just recently.00:43
RST38hcool00:44
New_n900_UserHmm, well TV out is not working.00:44
New_n900_UserAnd it also seems that sound is only coming from one headphone.00:44
RST38hwrong cable?00:44
New_n900_UserI'm beginning to be quite scared that there may be an issue with the headphone jack.00:45
New_n900_UserIt's the one that came with it...00:45
RST38huse the cable included with the phone00:45
New_n900_UserI know the iphone ones are not compatible.00:45
BCMMNew_n900_User: just in case, sure the pins are connected in the right order?00:45
BCMMNew_n900_User: i mean, the three plugs00:45
New_n900_UserYep00:45
BCMMyeah, apple uses a basically identical connector, with the pins rearranged because they gotta be different00:46
New_n900_UserEven if they weren't I should at least get sound or video. I get nothing.00:46
ds3the TV out seems to want to see the 75ohm termination00:46
New_n900_Usermeaning?00:47
DocScrutinizer51New_n900_User: firmly insert the plug, make sure it's seated completely00:48
BCMMthere's a way to ask the phone what it thinks is in the AV port, isn't there?00:48
BCMMcan't remember it though00:49
BCMMsomething dbus or sysfs00:49
DocScrutinizer51ysfs00:49
New_n900_UserI've done that, and even tried pulling it out a bit.00:50
New_n900_UserJust tried a different pair of headphones too and same issue with sound coming from only one ear.00:51
BCMMcat /sys/devices/platform/nokia-av/type00:51
BCMMoh; that really does sound like the port is dodgy00:52
johnxalso, if you insert the plug slow enough it's  possible to confuse the N900 about what got plugged in00:52
SpeedEvilNew_n900_User: Do you appen to have te AV lead - I forget what you said00:52
New_n900_UserAV lead?00:52
New_n900_UserI have the AV cables that came with it.00:52
SpeedEvildo you ave a suitable TV to plug it into?00:53
SpeedEvilOr audio system?00:53
New_n900_UserYes and yes.00:54
New_n900_UserJust unplugged my wii to plug it in.00:54
New_n900_UserAlso BCMM  did you mean for me to run that with the AV cables plugged in?00:54
SpeedEvilNew_n900_User: sorry - do you also get only one channel on the audio plug?00:55
SpeedEvilon the AV plug00:55
New_n900_UserActually I don't get any audio with the AV plug.00:58
New_n900_UserLet me fool around a bit more might be an issue with the tv sound system being set low somewhere.00:59
*** vanadismobile has joined #maemo00:59
New_n900_UserHmm, ok getting sound, can't tell if it's one channel or two.01:00
New_n900_UserI'd like to say one because that would be consistent with the headphones but...01:01

New_n900_UserHmm, self fix or hope I have a warranty on it?01:06
New_n900_Userok01:06

ShadowJKNew_n900_User, so you've tried with the original headset, you've tried with TV-out, and hey, if you have some regular headphones, try with those too01:23
ShadowJK3 different ones should be enough you'd think :/01:23
ShadowJKoriginal NOKIA headset, good to point out to those ppl :-)01:23
*** FireFly|n900 has quit IRC01:24
New_n900_UserShadowJK, yep, they want to send me a new headset lol01:27
New_n900_UserAnd yeah, I've tried with regular headphones too.01:27
New_n900_UserThey don't seem to get that lol01:27
ShadowJKSo do the headphones work OK in your computer?01:28
New_n900_UserOn a plus side the n900 qualifies me for "preferential service" apparently.01:28
togglesyou prefer to be raped01:28
New_n900_UserShadowJK, haven't tried, but I'd assume so.01:29
*** Meizirkki_ has quit IRC01:30

MilhouseCommunity SSU now requires PC Suite to complete installation? What's that about - anyone know?01:33
*** vanadismobile has quit IRC01:34
ShadowJKI guess I missed community ssu for n90001:34
pupnik_new year should be floating-point -- so we can do a wave of firecrackers east to west01:34
*** mitsutaka has joined #maemo01:34
*** BCMM has quit IRC01:35
MilhouseShadowJK: So far not sure what benefit it serves, all I've had so far are updates to the Community SSU (the most recent now unable to install without also installing PC Suite on a Windows PC)... I thought the Community SSU was supposed to provide updates for the apps.01:36
ShadowJKfor what apps01:36
MilhouseModest etc.01:36
MilhouseAt least, that's what I thought.01:37
ShadowJKI knew there was a N8x0 community ssu01:37
ShadowJKdidn't know there was a N900 one01:37
jacekowskiheh01:38
Milhousehttp://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/maemo/developers/63684?nohighlight=1#6368401:38
ShadowJKah, testing01:38
*** FIQ|n900 has quit IRC01:39
MilhouseNeedless to say, I'll now pass on updating with the latest Community SSU package as it doesn't seem to be providing any actual benefits so far. Or maybe I've got the wrong end of the stick.01:39
MilhouseShadowJK: Well, that's the first reference I found using my Google-fu. It's not got high visibility, but I'm sure it was discussed on t.m.o somewhere01:40
MilhouseMore N900-specific SSU discussion here: http://lists.maemo.org/pipermail/maemo-community/2010-December/004587.html01:43
MilhouseBuggered if I'll be installing Nokia PC Suite to finish the package install though.01:44
radicFrohes neues Jahr / Happy new year >> http://bravo.hopto.org/~radic/10-11/01:47
ShadowJKN900 asking for PC suite is usually a sign of conflicting packages01:48
MilhouseYeah, conflicts are all to do with Hildon01:48
MilhouseSummary for the package says "This Maemo update requires Nokia PC Suite on your PC for installation. Connect deive to PC via USB cable blah blah blah"01:49
MilhouseOn the "Problems" tab it lists the following packages as missing: hildon-home (>=0.3.71-2), hildon-desktop (>=1:2.2.142-4), hildon-status-menu (>=0.3.40-2)01:50
MilhousePresumably the Community SSU package is just badly configured?01:50
jacekowskino01:51
jacekowskiit's just hildon that requires packages that ssu uninstalls01:51
jacekowskibut it has to do it to work01:51
Milhouseso what's the solution?01:51
jacekowskistop using HAM01:51
jacekowskiit's slow crap01:51
Milhouseaha... try apt?01:51
Milhouseoh, totally agree with you there01:52
*** FIQ has joined #maemo01:52
MilhouseI normally use apt, but for ssu and system related updates tend to go the achingly slow HAM route01:52
ShadowJKapt isn't for normal users for sure, tends to blow stuff up01:53
Venemogoodbye guys :)01:53
Milhousei do hope the app manager in MeeGo will be orders of magnitude better than HAM...01:53
Milhousenight Venemo - happy new year.01:53
Venemothanks Milhouse, same to you too01:53
jacekowskiMilhouse: it won't01:53
VenemoMilhouse: try the "faster app manager", or use apt-get01:54
jacekowskiMilhouse: it will be based on even worse yum01:54
VenemoNOOO!01:54
MilhouseVenemo: i have FAP installed also, but that's still quite slow :)01:54
Venemojacekowski: don't spread lies01:54
Milhousejacekowski: That's goint to be a disaster then01:54
Milhouses/goint/going/01:54
aptMilhouse meant: jacekowski: That's going to be a disaster then01:54
VenemoMeeGo doesn't use yum01:54
MilhouseVenom: MeeGo uses Zypper01:54
VenemoI'm not 'venom', sorry01:54
jacekowskistill, it's crap01:55
Venemobut right, it uses zypper which is faster than yum01:55

ptlFor you too. Although the new year will still take two hours to get there.02:01
MilhouseThe apt-get upgrade seemed to go well... I've not got myself updated hildon-home, hildon-desktop and hildon-status-menu... I presume these are courtesy of the Community SSU package that I was maligning. :) Rebooting now... I wonder if there's a changelog?02:01

*** z4chh has joined #maemo02:48
lcukNew_n900_User, I take a lot of shots that automatic just doesn't get02:48
lcukbut macro mode does (short range macro shots)02:48
lcukbut because of the way macro focus scan works, it does the normal photos too02:48
ShadowJKI dont think automatic even considers or tries to focus as near as macro does02:48
* lcuk nods02:48
ShadowJKand macro atleast fails to focus further out for me02:48
lcuki still wish I could focus a few mm closer02:48
ShadowJKoh wait it just focused at 1.5m02:49
New_n900_UserNow which application do you use?02:49
ShadowJKI'm using default camera app02:49

New_n900_User(fcamera has the option to point to a focus point)02:49

lcuki want to turn on the recording red light and focus on woodgrain when using n900 as a mouse02:50
lcuki can see wood grain already02:50
lcukso should get some, but any extra focus depth would help the algo02:50

lcukyeah02:50
lcuk:)02:50
lcukits almost feasible02:50

lardmanah, so some of the apps are in extras-devel anyway, which brings us full circle to ask why lots of apps don't make it (or bother in my case so far) to Extras13:52

SpeedEvilTypically no pay, no transferral of rights.15:14
jacekowskiCopyright is a set of exclusive rights granted by the law of a jurisdiction to the author or creator of an original work415:15

SpeedEvilAlso, as I understand it, the copyright has to be explicitly assigned in terms of contracts, it's unlikely it passed in this case, especially with lack of payment16:41
TermanaSpeedEvil, I don't believe that interpretation to be correct. For instance, going back to the University situation, performing work at the request of the University and submitting it automatically confers the right (besides the point that most Universities here actually waive this and you do keep the copyright)16:44
TermanaIt is not explicitly written anywhere16:44

lardmansay I have an app which uses plugins, and these plugins want to update their data at arbitrary intervals, I could allow each plugin to create a QTimer, but I was thinking centralising the timer stuff would more easily allow me to suspend timers if the app is backgrounded18:01
lardmanany thoughts as to whether this is or isn't a good idea?18:01
alteregoI'd have a timer in each plugin like you said.18:02
lardmanthe centralising would also make it easier to write plugins, as they wouldn't need to listen for an extra "we're going to the bg" signal18:02

alteregolardman: Well, the proper way to do it would be to declare that your plugin implements timer interface, then you can interact with it in that manner with a cast.18:07

alteregoWell, I'll think about it, you're right it isn't really much more work.21:23
alteregoAnd the whole of v1->v2 development is going to be around mapping.21:24
alteregoSo I guess I should be able to write a plugin interface for map sources, then you can implement the plugin yourself :P21:24

jacekowskitobis87: patches are not GPLed21:29

jacekowskitobis87: there is GPLed kernel with patches already applied and stuff21:30

luke-jrjacekowski: BS21:35
tobis87But does the package not also includes compiled modules, which have the changes made to the code?21:35
luke-jrjacekowski: all of Linux is GPL21:35
jacekowskiyes21:35
luke-jrjacekowski: if it's a kernel patch, it's touching GPL code21:35

jacekowskiwell i consulted person that does it every day21:36
jacekowskiand he wasn't sure of that21:36
jacekowskiit may be gpled but may be not21:36
luke-jrjacekowski: a patch is merely a method of compressing a modified tree21:37
jacekowskiyes21:37
luke-jrjust because you don't see any of the original code when you gzip the kernel, doesn't mean it's no longer GPL21:37
jacekowskibut what if you write patch by hand21:37
luke-jryou can't write a patch by hand21:37
jacekowskiyou can21:37
luke-jrno21:38
luke-jryou need to base it on the original code21:38
luke-jror it won't work21:38
luke-jreven if you didn't have to copy and paste 3 lines of context before/after each change, it's STILL a derivative work21:38
tobis87Is the injection stuff touching mac80211? I understand that it is a recent version of the driver, but maybe the it could be backported.21:39
*** FIQ|n900 has quit IRC21:40

alteregoAngry Birds and apps seem to work fine aswell ..21:43

luke-jrif someone sues nVidia, then nVidia probably leaves 50% of the Linux users w/o drivers at all21:46
jacekowskihttp://kerneltrap.org/node/173521:46
luke-jrthen those 50% get mad at the developer who sued, instead of nVidia like they should21:46
