DocScrutinizeralways difernetiating to make uterly clear "we're second best, and trying hard to never ever regain pole position"00:01
TreibholzDocScrutinizer: that's exactly, what I thought, when I booted meego on my N900.00:01

Treibholzinstead of integrating the really good things of the iPhone.00:04
DocScrutinizerbinning the bits where they differ from iPhone crap, and trying to improve on the copied parts so they get as close as possible to #1 on hteir #2 postion. That's a sure path to always-second never-pole00:04
Treibholzlike CalDAV/CardDAV (instead of the stupid and broken-by-design SyncML)00:04

TreibholzDocScrutinizer: something that really shocked me, was how fast NITdroid runs.00:08
*** vanous has joined #maemo00:09
Treibholzmuch faster than meego00:09

DocScrutinizer([2011-03-04 19:45:25] <lardman> docscrutinizer: we'll get you there in the end, I hope) forget it, with this product policy it's getting more unlikely every day00:09
DocScrutinizerI'm not interested in meego GUI, meego concept, and neither in what they obviously plan to roll out as meego-device00:11
*** mardi has quit IRC00:11
TreibholzDocScrutinizer: what's the alternative? Android?00:12
DocScrutinizerTreibholz: meego is completely ignorant about special situation on a mobile phone (low ram, slow writes to swap, battery power conservation by consequent use of IRQ driven peripherals, whatever) They simply treat handset UX (NB the term) as a usual desktop (possibly even x86 arch centric) with a special skin00:14
divanDocScrutinizer, sounds bad (00:15
TreibholzDocScrutinizer: well, that's not very different to Maemo.00:16
lcukDocScrutinizer, http://wiki.meego.com/ARM/N900/DeveloperEdition00:17
DocScrutinizernope, that's *very* different to maemo, where even kernel seen massive special work done by Nokia to tailor it to OMAP arch and all the system around it. Exemplary case: lis302dl driver vs lis3lv02 driver00:18
TreibholzDocScrutinizer: and that's kind of what I like at Maemo. The n900 ist not a good phone, but a good computer for my pocket. And I can make calls with it! (Isn't that amazing?!)00:19
DocScrutinizerin short: maemo using a nice IRQ based design for acceleormeter while meego is abusing a joystick driver that incidentally was found upstream and used same chip00:19
DocScrutinizermaemo driver (C) Nokia and tailored to fit N90000:20
TreibholzDocScrutinizer: but Maemo also uses too much swap and the n900 has not enough RAM.00:20
lcukDocScrutinizer, can I ask, does MeeGo do anything right?00:20
*** muelli has quit IRC00:20
DocScrutinizernot maemo uses too much swap, the apps are too greedy00:21
*** sunny_s_ is now known as sunny_s00:21
Treibholzsetting swappines to 100 is not what I call usefull.00:21
DocScrutinizerlcuk: dunno, basically I'm not interested in what's done right in meego as there's enough that's done terribly wrong00:21
*** murrayc_ has quit IRC00:21
DocScrutinizerI'm not interested in meego en todo00:23
Treibholzbtw. What are the 1300 Meego-developer do all day, I read so much about?00:24
DocScrutinizerthey fsckd up for ~ one year now, I'm not seeing things rapidly changing all of a sudden00:24
DocScrutinizerdeveloping tablet UX00:25
DocScrutinizerTreibholz: ^^^00:25
lcukTreibholz, ooh where did you pull actual figures out from?00:25
*** kthomas_vh_ has quit IRC00:25
Treibholzlcuk: wait, I'll try to find the links again. Though they may be in German...00:26
*** kthomas_vh has joined #maemo00:26
*** Rarok has joined #maemo00:27
*** eMHa__ has joined #maemo00:27
DocScrutinizerwhile meego code development may be more or less open, the system architecture design clearly wasn't, that's why Nokia and Intel made some poor decisions that are biting their back now and will continue to do that for long time. This starts on rationale to base kernel on a particular branch and doesn't stop at UX design rules00:29
*** eijk has quit IRC00:29
lcukDocScrutinizer, the tablet ux is nice and shiny00:29
DocScrutinizerfor iPhone fanbois, yes00:30
*** ptl has quit IRC00:30
DocScrutinizeroooh tablet, yes00:30
DocScrutinizermaybe, I'm not interested in tablets00:30
DocScrutinizerwe're talking handset here00:31
lcukso the change in focus for handset that I jsut showed00:31
DocScrutinizerand clearly an OS tailored to meet tablet needs and requirements is a poor match for a phone - that's meego foundation bug00:31
BCMMwhat do you mean by "base kernel on a particular branch"? develop their kernel like a fork, rather than as a patchset for the mainstream kernel?00:32
*** mitsutaka has quit IRC00:32
Treibholzlcuk: http://thehandheldblog.com/2011/03/02/nokia-meego-devs-50-percent-bonus/ they even talk about 6500 devs!00:32
*** vanous has quit IRC00:32
*** ptl has joined #maemo00:33
DocScrutinizerBCMM: basically meego isn't accepting the need to have a patchset to tailor the kernel for the platform. If it's not main then it is not accepted00:33
Treibholzlcuk: http://www.golem.de/1102/81366.html here the say 60000:33
lcukTreibholz, no, it says engineers00:33
mikhasDocScrutinizer, you are insulting quite a few people here. But I guess you know that.00:34
lcukthat can mean people up and down the entire product spectrum00:34
DocScrutinizerI'm not insulting anybody00:34
lcuknot just those tip of the iceberg ones we see working publicly00:34
Treibholzlcuk: and what else should an engineer do with meego?00:34
lcukTreibholz, well since there has been public verification of a meego device00:35
lcukperhaps you know quite a few of them might actually be engineering things in hardware00:35
lcukevening mikhas \o00:35
mikhasheya00:36
*** GNUtoo|laptop has quit IRC00:36
lcukTreibholz, watch a Wolkswagon advert, they have a great set where they show one engineer working out how to specifically make windows work or door seals or antennas or something00:36
mikhasVolkswagen, ahem00:37
DocScrutinizermikhas: that's probably the problem meego gods feel insulted when somebody questions their decisions00:37
lcukmikhas, it is a good example because theyshow what individuals do to make the whole product00:37
*** eijk has joined #maemo00:37
mikhasOr perhaps it's reason things are not discussed openly enough, when certain people complain about everything. Regardless of the outcome, they'll always find something.00:37
*** buntfalke has quit IRC00:38
*** rhkfin has joined #maemo00:38
DocScrutinizerlol, yeah when there's enough to complain about, including the process itself, then you're likely to find a few bits. For sure closing down discussion is a good way to defend your decisions00:39
mikhaslcuk, VW has this: http://autospeed.com/cms/title_Volkswagens-Incredible-Glass-Factory/A_2538/article.html00:39
rhkfinHow long the CSSU upgrade/installation is supposed to take? I've had it now working for maybe an hour. THe screen's empty, keyboard and suspend button lit the backlight but nothing can be seen..00:39
*** PhonicUK2 has quit IRC00:39

lcukmikhas, :O00:40
lcukkudos00:40
mikhasthe factory gets the materials by using the public tram service00:40
Treibholzmikhas: the whole city belongs VW...00:41
mikhasDresden belongs to VW? Nah ... ;-)00:41
mikhasWolfsburg OTOH, perhaps ...00:41
Treibholzahh, not in Wolfsburg?00:42
mikhasnope, not this one00:42
mikhasPhaeton comes from Dresden.00:42
lcukmikhas, Nokia building where qgil is are right in the heart of the town and do not include cafe and stuff afaik00:42
lcukI remember reading how it helps to integrate the workforce in with the surroundings and obviously also helps local economy00:42
mikhasinteresting concept00:42
lcukI hope I remembered that correctly00:43
Treibholzin the last 20 years a lot of money was put in the infrastructure of eastern Germany, so this is a quite good idea, to use it.00:44

lcukhttp://mynokiablog.com/2011/02/05/nokias-new-us-hq-in-sunnyvale-california-silicon-valley/00:49
lcukInstead of creating a standalone enclosed campus, Nokia have renovated from bare skeleton a new corporate HQ. I’d say that fits Nokia’s green credentials. Nokia’s new building is close to amenities and the hundreds of new Nokia staff (and possibly their family) will revitalize the city with new business.00:49
* RST38h yawns00:49
b-man`hmm00:50
RST38hlcuk: Man, you should go work at Nokia's public relations00:50
* RST38h personally would like to see lcuk pitching the new WP7-based Nokia phone =)00:50
lcukwell depending on what club I use, I guess I could get it a couple of hundred yards at least00:51
RST38hhehe =)00:51
b-man`phone gulfing, now that sounds fun :)00:52
merkavahi would like to see revived development for n8x0 :)00:52
unixSnobwow.. gizmo5 is shutting down.. bummer!00:53
ShadowJK_There are already the phone throwing competitions in .fi, but usually the winning phones have been out of production for a decade :P00:53
lcukmerkavah, I just released new app for n8x000:53
merkavahyeah. what to do get new Sip provider00:54
merkavahcool00:54
lcukinfact, all the apps I write should work on 8x000:54
lcukbut, meh that is just because of how I started00:54
unixSnobgizmo5 was the only free sip provider that integrated with google voice, no?00:55
merkavahseems a lot of stuff i see is around 200900:55
merkavahor less00:55
merkavahwacha making?00:55
lcukmerkavah, yeah but there are some00:55
*** tych0 has quit IRC00:55
lcukafaik, puzzlemaster is one of the more recent games00:55
lcukthat now work on n8x000:55
lcukthat is written in Qt too00:55
lcukall it usually takes is careful thought about using standard API00:56
DocScrutinizerlcuk: and I really love your work for that aspect (as well) - please keep it like that00:56
lcukDocScrutinizer, it would be difficult not to00:56
merkavahi have a sipgate account, maybe have to put it on my 81000:56
lcukI would have to really fsck the code up to stop it from working!00:56
DocScrutinizernah, it's too darn easy to forget about it and code botch00:56
lcukthough I do have a couple of bugs00:57
lcukpeople do not like the top left corner dashboard switcher00:57
*** smooph has quit IRC00:57
lcukand think the back button is not needed00:57
lcuk(eascape and switcher are hardkeys on n8x0)00:57

*** zanberdo has joined #maemo00:58
merkavahnice, doc :)00:58
merkavahi thought of mer but havent yet00:59
DocScrutinizerof course - depending on your particular router - you need to open up and forward some ports, possibly disable SIP-ALG, etc. But that's not related to maemo SIP support in any way01:00
zanberdonot sure if this question is best asked here, but I've recently installed the pidgin-otr from extras-devel and though it installed just fine when I try to initiate a private conversation I'm never prompted to select the method for handling the public/private key... just get an error that 'length error'. anyone know anything about this?01:00
rhkfinCSSU anyone? How long is it supposed to install and what should I do if i've had black screen for ~hour? Backlight responses.01:00

DocScrutinizergeneral advice: when rebooting, unplug USB prior to device shutdown01:18
DocScrutinizerboot from battery, replug charger when system is up01:19
lcukahem DocScrutinizer, that is not general advice :P01:19
DocScrutinizerit can't hurt, no?01:19
lcukgeneral advice: tying your shoe laces correctly helps prevent accidents01:19
*** eijk has quit IRC01:19
lcukwhy does that matter though GeneralAntilles01:20
lcukerrr DocScrutinizer01:20
DocScrutinizerlcuk: how is optification dealing with act_dead on initial boot?01:20
*** MadViking has quit IRC01:21
*** MadViking has joined #maemo01:21
DocScrutinizerI thought it's a very poor idea to interrupt the post-install optification copy process by a reboot. "powering up" device from ACT_DEAD is such a reboot though01:22
DocScrutinizerafaik01:22
DocScrutinizerwell, maybe no complete reboot, but enough of a boot to kill of the copy halfway, if it got started in ACT_DEAD01:23
DocScrutinizers/ of a / off a /01:23
infobotDocScrutinizer meant: well, maybe no complete reboot, but enough off a boot to kill of the copy halfway, if it got started in ACT_DEAD01:23
lcukDocScrutinizer, specifically not sure, since the optification stuff should have already either been done in postinst (if ssu) or already preinstalled yonks ago01:23
DocScrutinizerlcuk: after rootfs flash, the first bot shouldn't be one that enters ACT_DEAD, no?01:24

DocScrutinizerlcuk: I don't know either, so the advice isn't a hoax01:29
lcukDocScrutinizer, I never said it was a hoax01:29
lcukbut context is everything01:29
lcukthis is not -ssu channel, and most people reboot normally01:29
DocScrutinizergenerally an install that needs a reboot is considering that next bootup to enter full working mode, not ACT_DEAD and get interrupted after 10s when user decides to "switch on" the device01:30
lcukhad you prefixed it with saying "when doing updates ..."01:30
*** dailylinux has joined #maemo01:30
DocScrutinizerok, granted01:31

DocScrutinizerfactoid: N900 keyboard matrix isn't made to cope with arbitrary N-key rollover. Don't expect all 3-key and esp 4-key combinations to work reliably01:59
*** mikhas has quit IRC02:00
*** dailylinux has quit IRC02:01
DocScrutinizerthere's a list of "not working" 3-key combos: http://wiki.maemo.org/N900_Hardware_Subsystems#Keyboard - for 4-key combos (ctrl-shift-blue-<char>) you're on your own02:01
DocScrutinizer(another nice example why N900 is NOT just a miniaturized PC, and why you need to keep in mind this fact even while designing userland apps)02:04
jacekowskiwell, how many key presses typical pc keyboard can do02:04
jacekowskiyour standard average keyboard can only do like 4-502:04
DocScrutinizerdepends, usually they have full N-key rollover02:05
jacekowskiand only some limited combinations02:05
DocScrutinizerat very least fo all the qualifier keys02:05
jacekowskinot all of hem02:05

SpeedEvil  You can.02:36
SpeedEvilSort-of.02:36
SpeedEvilBut not really.02:37
SpeedEvilIt's good enough to see the screen is working.02:37
SpeedEvilAnd that the device has booted normally02:37
SpeedEvilBut not much more.02:37
DocScrutinizeryeah, anyway screen protectors really impair the nice sensitivity of the N900 touchscreen02:37
nidOscreen protectors arent needed anyway if you make use of a case + care02:38
*** Tiger|Blood is now known as swc|66602:39
DocScrutinizerdepending on your usage patterns it might be worth considering a touchpanel swap for ~80EUR after some 2..4 years rather than to get annoyed about a 20bucks screen protector turning N900 in a dull piece of hw02:39
SpeedEvilI disagree02:39
*** merlin1991 has joined #maemo02:39
SpeedEvilI find screen protectors completely essential02:40
SpeedEvilI however tend to abuse my device accidentally.02:40
nidOthats where the "care" part comes in :P02:40
SpeedEvilI was gardening, and accidentally put the seccateurs in the wrong pocket, and bent down and up a hundred times.02:40
DocScrutinizerthat's why I said "depending on your usage pattern..."02:40
SpeedEvilScreen protector was damn near opaque.02:40
nidOmy n900 lives in its' leather case 100% of the time it's not being used02:40
SpeedEvilOn more rational usage - I got addicted to blocks for a bit.02:41
nidOscreen with no protector on it's still flawless02:41
*** achipa has quit IRC02:41
DocScrutinizernidO: nope, you also charge it ;-P02:41
SpeedEvilThat killed the screen.02:41
nidODocScrutinizer: yeah true fair enough, it lives in its' case whenever it's anywhere other than in my hands or on its' stand02:42
SpeedEvilIf you use fingers, then it's hard to scratch if that's how you use it02:42
SpeedEvilFingertips02:42
*** kuuntelija has joined #maemo02:42
*** DrGrov has left #maemo02:42
nidOi use both fingers and stylus, but im always intentionally careful when using the stylus02:43
*** ohwhyme has joined #maemo02:44
BCMMi've found that the stylus that comes with it can not scratch the screen02:44
SpeedEvilHard to IME tell when you've got a microscopic bit of grit on the stylus though.02:44
SpeedEvilWhich can scratch the screen.02:44
BCMMsame with a finger02:44
BCMMwell, you can feel microscopic objects with a fingertip actually, but still possible02:44
DocScrutinizeractually the single microscopic scar I got in one of the N900 screens was with fingernail when teher's been some sand or glass or whatever that stcked to that fingernail02:45
nidOthe stylus's that Fake was/is selling seem like theyre probably a bit better than the nokia one at avoiding scratches, the tip seems to be made of slightly softer plastic02:45
BCMMi did totally ruin a screen protector, before i stopped using them, by getting addicted to a game02:45
BCMMyou could see all the in-game buttons on the screen protector when i got rid of it02:45
*** GuySoft has joined #maemo02:45
SpeedEvilWith a finger, it's _really_ hard to scratch the screen, even with a bit of grit - using the fingertip02:45
SpeedEvilNot so with a nail, of course.02:46
SpeedEvilOddly, I found that a sharp green wood stylus was awesome from a 'not attracting grit' POV02:46
SpeedEvilI used a japanese maple twig from a tree in the garden, lightly whittled02:47

zutesmogprinting signs.  SignIQ is the product.  The renderer was originally written in toolbook.  I proved (with a prototype) we could take the same templates and build our own renderer.  The built the team, and designed the architecture.15:15

lcukor was it to screen/projector too?15:17
zutesmogdevice context, (supplied to the C++ renderer from a delphi front end)  so we could render bitmaps, postscript etc..15:17
lcukcool15:18
zutesmogI wanted to go with cairo but that was considered a bit too risky (by myself too ;-)  especially as it was a windows app ;-)15:18
lcukheh yeah15:19
zutesmogtext on a curved path is not easy with gdi+ and the rich text formatting is not graet either.  And we would scale text to fit rules.  The templates can be scripted with business rules in javascript/vbscript15:19
zutesmogI got python running as scripting backend as well, but we didn't ship that.15:20
lcukheh I have wrangled windows GDI printing and rtf for years15:20
jonwilWhy cant Windows have sane printing like Linux and OSX15:20
lcukit kindof did15:20
lcukbut it was not the printing, it was the fonts15:21
lcuksince rendering to one DC for screen and switching to print actually gave different scale/results15:21
zutesmognot a lot of fun is it, you can't stay in gdi+ you have to drop into gdi at times as some stuff isn't implemented.  all sorts of insane things.15:21
* lcuk cursed that often15:21
zutesmogyeah, we spent a seriously large amount of time resolving those differences.15:21

lcuk(before I knew about subpixel stuff)15:22
Venemowell WPF did fix most of these kind of things15:23
zutesmogyep, and try scaling it to fit in a box for each piece of text, that might need to be wrapped or not.  And so have to binary search for the best fit.15:23

* jonwil hopes that the licensing-change-request stuff ends up being more than just some talk by a few nokia people and that it turns into actual code we can use16:28
Jaffajonwil: Not sure how you can *quite* say that, given that qgil's acted on what we asked him to (although too early yet to know whether it was a positive outcome). It's also a *community* council, not a *Maemo* council.16:28

Go and read the maemo-developers threads about the Qt updates that were pushed to Extras-devel and broke everything, until the Council pushed for them to be renamed and tidied up.16:30

lcukbecause on my n810 scrolling was at 33fps17:12

SwedeMikeShadowJK_: all the more important that all applications sync up their chatter so they all bring the phone out of idle at the same time so HS resource can be left down most of the time.18:20

*** smhar has quit IRC18:21
SwedeMikewould also be nice if the phone could signal to the network that it wants to go to idle, right now as far as I have been told, it's the network that has a defined timeout for traffic before telling the phone to go to idle.18:21
DocScrutinizer51SpeedEvil and some of me there are decent figures on virtually everything regarding power consumption18:21
*** zeltak has joined #maemo18:22
ShadowJK_SwedeMike, yep, network decides it all18:22
*** otep has joined #maemo18:22
lcukShadowJK_, wouldn't this clustering be better at the low level interface end18:22
lcukso that it was not down to apps themselves18:23
ShadowJK_The operator here with friendliest policy for always-on on 3g is also the slowest. There's probably a tradeoff thing going on18:23
SwedeMikeso ideal would be for the phone to signal that it wants to go out of idle, get HS, do the chatter needed in a few seconds to update whatever presence etc, and then go back to idle. Would save both network resources and phone battery.18:23
ShadowJK_lcuk, well generally you want webpage to start downloading immediately and not 2 minutes from now :P18:24
zerojayAndroid lets you set18:24
zerojayer.18:24
ShadowJK_I suspect that with hsdpa if a phone wants to go into idle or leave idle it involves a dozen other phones too18:25
zerojayHit Return there when I meant to erase... damn angles.18:25
lcukShadowJK_, difference between interactive activation (ie when screen on and user infront of it) and when the device is idle18:25
ShadowJK_I made the machine with my irc proxy block traffic to my phone for 2 minutes  at a time, and unblock until tcp retransmissions have sent it all :)18:26
SwedeMikeShadowJK_: well, if the applications can say "we're all done now for a while, thanks" then at least the phone should be able to hint the network that it doesn't forsee any more traffic in the near future and can go to idle. I guess 3GPP didn't want this for some reason.18:26
*** slonopotamus has quit IRC18:26
ShadowJK_Well, after traffic has stopped moving, it seems to return to idle at the next opportunity?18:27
zerojayAndroid has a state called "auto-sync" that apps that want to pull down data from time to time use. Some apps allow you to turn off the radio or turn it down to 2G until X minutes, then jump to 3G/whatever, turn on auto-sync for x minutes then turn radio back off again.18:28
*** Kilroo has joined #maemo18:28
SwedeMikeShadowJK_: in our network, that means 30 seconds until it goes to idle. It releases the HS resource fairly quickly though, think it's after just a few seconds.18:28
DocScrutinizer51ShadowJK_: lcuk: we discussed that issue on OM community, my suggestion been to use different network devices with their own specific properties (like timeout despite inbound traffic, buffer/dont, et all) can be implemented mostly on netfilter level18:29
ShadowJK_5 seconds for hsdpa->wcdma with my operator18:29
*** tarantism_ has joined #maemo18:29
SwedeMikezerojay: are you sure about the jumping between 2G and 3G? That sounds like a lot of location updates that'd use quite a lot of battery in itself, also hinder incoming calls for a few seconds every time it happens.18:30
zerojayYes, I'm sure.18:30

zerojayI never claimed the automatic switching was default in Android.18:33

DocScrutinizer51you could even implement a status menu slider for connection-speed vs power saving, similar to brightness slider18:34

DocScrutinizer51you need a per-app configuration of dynamic rules aka policies for handling traffic. Those policies also are aware of all the other connection properties like port numbers etc, same as (or even in) netfilter18:37

DocScrutinizer51beat*18:38
DocScrutinizer51just I think the policies should be much more versatile18:39
zerojayI think the way it works on Android is it blocks based on the Intent being used at the time.18:39
zerojayHaven't looked into it.18:40
ShadowJK_you could block everything that hasn't specifically asked for access through maemo connectivity APIs and don't coordinate through iphb (or the higher level things that use libiphb), but it'd be tremendously unpopular move ;p18:42
DocScrutinizer51there need to be per-app threholds and timeouts for 2G<->3G switching, sync to other app groups (aka network /dev-ices) for bundling transmissions18:42

javispedroVenemo: maemo application compatibility, and some input method hooks.20:52
DocScrutinizerVenemo: for SHR the UX != system argument applies 100%20:52
VenemoDocScrutinizer:  :):)20:52
Venemojavispedro, libhildon is there for maemo app compatibility20:53
Evanescencewhere to download maemo system ? i want to install maemo on my mobile20:53
javispedroVenemo: apps expect stuff from Gtk+. Like the Hildon icon sizes, etc.20:53
lcuknot all apps.20:53
javispedrospecially not plain gtk+ apps ;)20:54
Venemojavispedro: hildon iconsizes are there in libhildon, aren't they?20:54
VenemoEvanescence: you can't20:54
DocScrutinizerVenemo: for sure SHR - being a spinoff of OE - has quite some quirks as well, but it has a much nicer system architecture and esp it has a nicer community without decisions made behind walls like in meego20:54
VenemoDocScrutinizer: http://shr-project.org/trac/wiki/SHR_Architecture doesn't seem to be very detailed20:56
DocScrutinizerI'll still stay with maemo for the foreseeable future. Just mentioning it to prove there's other alternatives than just meego20:56

divanIs it possible to use valgrind on N900? It was annouced ARM support some time ago, and now I see the package valgrind-3.6.0 in repository, but it doesn't contain any binaries.20:59
RST38hjavispedro: As long as he knows that the issue needs fixing, he will get to it, eventually20:59
javispedroVenemo: yes, the icon sizes are actually defined in libhildon -- however the rest are not, like the tree view changes (just grep apt-get source libgtk2.0-dev for MAEMO_CHANGES and you will get a list)21:00

divanjavispedro, hi. I've found solution for broken avcodec issue - I can symlink libstub to libavcodec in the game's directory, but I need to add '.' dir to LD_LIBRARY_PATH. I can do it via .desktop file, but maybe worth adding it to env.sh?21:02

SpeedEvilI just installed gcc in a chroot, and built it.21:54
SpeedEvilAnd it worked.21:54
SpeedEvilAt least for what I was wanting it for.21:54

Sc0rpiushaha22:20
DocScrutinizertrumee: sorry - I fail to understand the nature of the problem22:20
trumeeDocScrutinizer: www.stunserver.org is certainly not, but ping stunserver.org is resolving to 192.168.1.122:20
*** e-yes has joined #maemo22:21
DocScrutinizerNFC, possibly ALG in router22:21
DocScrutinizerI can't decode that 3 lines to make a proper error description out of that22:22
Sc0rpiuswell they defined in the DNS zone stunserver.org as 192.168.1.1 to force people to use a complete server name22:22
Sc0rpiusnslookup stunserver.org in any computer in the world will resolve as 192.168.1.122:22

Sc0rpiusyou're not supposed to use stunserver.org that's a loopback name22:23
Sc0rpiusthey force you to use a complete domain name22:23
Sc0rpiusI mean they do that on purpose22:23
Sc0rpiusso you HAVE to use whatever.stunserver.org22:24
trumeeSc0rpius: does that mean N900 has hardcoded it incorrectly?22:24
Sc0rpiusI don't think it's hardcoded since you can use your own server22:24
DocScrutinizerwell, I don't see who and why is using stunserver.org.22:25
Sc0rpiushe's talking about using stun in N90022:25
DocScrutinizerthere's a config option in advanced settings of SIP "use automatic STUN detection"22:25
* trumee suspects that automatic setting uses stunserver.org22:26
Robot101it doesn't22:26
Sc0rpiusthen uncheck that22:26
Sc0rpiusand type a STUN server and port22:26
Robot101it makes a SRV request and most likely will fail to find anything22:26
DocScrutinizerif the whateveritscalled entry in DNS has no proper STUN service for the SIP provider domain, then automatic might fall back to stunserver.org :-P22:26
*** smooph1 has joined #maemo22:26
trumeeRobot101: good to see you22:26
trumeeRobot101: so why is openwrt moaning about it?22:27
DocScrutinizerI suggest to manually config proper settings for stun server in N900 and disable automatic detection22:27
Sc0rpiusI suggest that too22:27
Robot101yeah, you can use stun.telepathy.im22:27
Sc0rpiusand there are zillion of public STUN servers22:27

*** smooph has quit IRC22:27
trumeeright, going to use that22:27

trumeeDocScrutinizer: 192.168.1.1 doesnt exist on my network actually22:28

* Sc0rpius shoots himself22:29

Sc0rpiusyour default gateway22:29
trumeeSc0rpius: oops!, i was using somebodys else network to try that out :p22:30
