DocScrutinizerGuySoft: then reflash, and DO NOT restore all those fancy little applets and whatnot, that some of them are known to keep system busy. Deactivate skype and IM as well00:17
*** penguinbait has joined #maemo00:17
DocScrutinizerGuySoft: worst case you have a perfectly working power-humble system that 'just' is logged in to a rogue fubar 3G data carrier that forwards random pings originating around the world to the IP addr of your GSM interface. This will keep even a completely idle system in a state of permanent TX similar to a never ending phonecall00:20
thomasjfoxGuySoft: Another option would be to install "powertop" and see which application is waking up the CPU00:23
GuySoftDocScrutinizer, its a n810, its like a phone without the evil00:23

DocScrutinizerohh, so no idea then00:24
ZogG_wMohammadAG: did u think of submiting maemo-cssu to gcos '11 ? =)00:24
DocScrutinizerpowertop is your best bet then00:24
DocScrutinizerif that's even available for diablo00:24
GuySoftDocScrutinizer, i am not sure, let me look00:25
thomasjfoxDocScrutinizer, GuySoft: I think it's only available for fremantle / N90000:25
GuySoftE: Couldn't find package powertop :(00:27
*** aloisiojr has quit IRC00:28
DocScrutinizerwell, for N810 I think there are hidden and not so hidden power hogs as well: CPU freq governor policy (keep CPU at high clock all the time, profile "power" or "performance" or sth), vboost providing 5V to USB for nuttin, frontcam enabled, ...???00:28

Macerskype/telepathy is such a battery whore01:22
Robot101it's skype01:23
APTXbut it has dbus!01:23
Robot101telepathy (eg XMPP, and SIP) hooks into the device-wide heartbeat stuff, to suppress keep-alives01:23
Macerskype doesnt seem to do that ;)01:24
Macerit really sucks the battery dry01:24
DocScrutinizerRobot101: suppress keep-alives? how's that?01:24
Robot101DocScrutinizer: there's a heartbeat daemon, and an iptables module which queues up TCP keepalives, and releases them when the daemon says so01:25
DocScrutinizeror are you talking about that bundling of activities?01:25
ShadowJKtcp keepalives are pretty insignificant compared to IM protocol keepalives :-)01:25
Robot101other stuff that sends connection-level keepalives including SIP and XMPP connect to the same daemon01:25
Robot101and only send them out when the timeouts go, or something else is using the connection01:25
Robot101so they all skip to the same beat, and only wake up the device & antenna if the connections need to be kept alive01:26
DocScrutinizeryes, I know about that01:26
Robot101skype has no such thing, it makes 10s of TCP connections and talks crap over them all all the time01:26
Robot101and wakes up almost constantly01:26
Robot101kiss your battery goodbye :P01:26
DocScrutinizer"suppressing keep-alives" somewhat sounded strange to me though, I probably misunderstood it01:27
ShadowJKI've only seen one tcp connection from skype, and yeah it does use power :-)01:27
*** HRH_H_Crab has quit IRC01:27
DocScrutinizeralso all that doesn't really help for curing bad efects of random inbound pings01:27
DocScrutinizerwhich you get a lot for skype/IM aiui01:28
DocScrutinizerfor inbound you'd need a proxy doing that buffering/bundling for you01:29

DocScrutinizerRobot101: there's a problem with telepathy-sofiaSIP, contacts, and dialer. I got an account at, a german SIP provider. It has an associated landline number. Inbound call from e.g landline "+49 911 123456" are signalled and logged as origin:"". This doesn't match to any contact that has tel:"0911123456" nor to "+49911123456". My question: is there a concept in telepathy to deal with this?01:38
*** Kuba_ has joined #maemo01:39
Robot101alas no, the address book code in the N900 has special-cases for doing suffix lookups on incoming PSTN calls, but the same isn't true of SIP URIs01:40
Robot101it would need to have some heuristic to decompose them to pull out a telephone number01:40
Robot101but it's always going to be a kinda lame hack01:40

*** jonne has joined #maemo01:54
*** HRH_H_Crab has joined #maemo01:55
DocScrutinizerwell, in twinklephone there's an option to check for "...;call=tel" parameter and in that case discard the domain part and display the user part as a plain simple phonenumber. Service "tel:" in any SIP addr should get handled same way. But yeah, basically I agree there has to be heuristics to deal with that, as there seems to be no consistent standard how carriers handle signalling of inbound calls via PSTN gateway01:55
*** mc_teo` has joined #maemo01:55
Robot101aha, call=tel sounds useful01:56
Robot101want to send a wishlist bug to telepathy-rakia and say "expose tel: and ;call=tel numbers through a different namespace so that UIs can apply PSTN heuristics"?01:56
DocScrutinizerso maybe sofiaSIP might learn to callback a hook to arbitrary scripts that act as a (unix) filter converting stdin sip:0911123456 to stdout 0911123456, and then sofiaSIP would use that cooked addr for further processing of the inbound call01:57

e-yesDocScrutinizer, is it possible switch output lcd->tv (and back) without X server? (I mean something simple like shellscript)02:42
DocScrutinizerRobot101: ( address book code in the N900 has special-cases for... ) There's a checkmark box on SIP accounts in fremantle "[X] use this account for PSTN" (OWTTE). Seems to me it should work both directions, i.e. handle inbound addr from that account in a f'() way of what it does for dialing PSTN number outbound via that account02:43
SpeedEvilWithout X server, with the default kernel, you get a reboot02:44
SpeedEvile-yes: what are you trying to do?02:44
Robot101DocScrutinizer: yeah - it doesn't :P02:45
DocScrutinizere-yes: TVout is via a dedicated framebuffer that just happens to (usually) have same content like the one used for LCD, afaik02:45
e-yesi have process that open framebuffer02:45
e-yestrying to switch (the same) framebuffer to tvout02:46
BCMMi'd assumed it was able to capture video overlays like some desktop graphics cards02:46
DocScrutinizere-yes: i am no expert for that, but would assume you can't simply switch the LCD framebuffer to output to AVout02:47
DocScrutinizerafaik they have significantly differing properties, regarding resolution, framerate, whatnot else02:48
BCMM57.2Hz? wtf?02:49
BCMM(from xrandr, run using ssh -X to a normal linux machine that actually has the xrandr command)02:50
BCMMis that really the refresh rate? why?02:51
e-yesBCMM, why not?02:52
BCMMit's a rather unusual choice...02:53
e-yesenought for nonflicker on lcd02:53
BCMMi'm wondering if there's a specific reason for that choice is all02:53
e-yessome DMA limitations? LVDS bandwidth limit?02:54
GeneralAntillesBaseball's back.02:56

*** NIN101 has quit IRC02:56
GeneralAntillesIs there any good method for imaging both the rootfs and the emmc to clone a device?02:59
*** jonne has quit IRC03:01
lcukDocScrutinizer, e-yes : observation:  tv out normally outputs the translated x11 RGB buffer (how it does it, IDK - call it magic) but if you open a YUV overlay, that is output instead.03:02
lcukfor as long as the YUV overlay is in effect, that is what is sent to the tvout03:02
*** jonne has joined #maemo03:03
lcuknormally, maemo video player stops the YUV overlay when you pan to dashboard, and tvout resumes showing the x11 content03:03
nox-YUV overlay == using xv?03:03
DocScrutinizerGeneralAntilles: (clone) I think .tgz images created by backupmenu should suffice03:03
lcukbut it is entirely feasible (and played with quite a lot) that you can continue playing YUV overlay content whilst you have entirely different data on the X11 RGB03:04
e-yeslcuk, thx. looks like so, I'm googling OMAP/DSS now:)03:04
DocScrutinizerlcuk: (normally video player stops...) yes, a very annoying property03:04
lcukDocScrutinizer, stops for a different reason03:05
lcukthe YUV layer is not composited ;)03:05
lcukso you end up seeing a postage stamp window into the whole movie03:05
*** BCMM has quit IRC03:05
DocScrutinizerlcuk: nah, I'd prefer media player to contine playback movie via AVout, even while I'm checking email on N90003:06
DocScrutinizer(you can continue playing YUV overlay content whilst you have entirely different data on the X11 RGB)03:07
lcukI know however the majority use case is not tvout03:07
lcukso the YUV layer gets stopped for that03:07
DocScrutinizertbh that's a design flaw - there had to be a config feature or menu setup entry03:07
lcukI think it is overlooked03:08
DocScrutinizerof course03:08
DocScrutinizerlike so many others03:08
lcukI thought about using a BT keyboard and mouse to be honest03:08
DocScrutinizere.g audio playback via AV to home stereo, where you for sure don't want ts clicks and ringtones via AV03:08
nox-and btw did i get that right, n900 does something like vaapi/vdpau too?03:09
* jonwil is about ready to give up hope of seeing anything from Nokia that will benefit Maemo, despite
povbotBug 11128: Opening the source for Sharing services framework03:09
DocScrutinizerjonwil: poke Jaffa about state of negotiations03:09
* lcuk recognises that bug03:09
ShadowJKnox-, well... if you push something through gstreamer it might go through the hardware decoded path, or fail03:10
ShadowJKnox-, it's something like, um, openmax..03:10
ShadowJKor openil03:10
ShadowJKat the end of gstreamer03:10
nox-but its also gpu offloading?03:11
nox-or is that the dsp?03:11
ShadowJKGPU is worthless for video.03:11
* nox- just curious cause i had some `fun' with vdpau/vaapi and libxine/vdr...03:11
nox-so its the dsp that does it?03:12
ShadowJK(Yeah on nvidia desktops chips more capable than the low-end ones, there are enough shader units that they actually decode video with sheer bruteforce)03:12
ShadowJKAnd the result is fed to DSS2 which does the colourspace transform and scaling03:13
lcukthere is also the IVA(2) which as far as I know is a whole core like the DSP but essential unused03:13
ShadowJKIVA is used03:13
lcukShadowJK, the IVA is meant to do that work03:13
ShadowJKBut it's undocumented03:14
lcukit does YUV<->RGB too03:14
lcukShadowJK, used by what?03:14
ShadowJKWhen you play h264 movie03:14
jonwilWhen is the best time to catch Jaffa?03:14
lcukhow would a mere mortal use it03:14
ShadowJKlcuk, one wouldn't03:14
lcukjonwil, just after it falls from the tree.03:15
e-yesfor camera resizer iirc03:15
ShadowJKUnless you go through mafw or gstreamer03:15
*** ZogG_w has joined #maemo03:15
lcukShadowJK, how does gstreamer use it?03:15
ShadowJKthe closed dsp blobs03:15
lcukis it just a coprocessor (like old amiga blitter) or does it have its own kernel and extra stuff (like the DSP)03:15
*** mc_teo` has quit IRC03:16
*** unixSnob has quit IRC03:16
* SpeedEvil tries to remember how many cores he counted in the n900.03:16
ShadowJKBasically, IVA is this unit full of useful algorithms common to most video formats, and it's accessible from the DSP. The "DSP Codecs" in fact access IVA for the heavy lifting03:16
SpeedEvilI think I got up to a dozen once.03:16
lcuk1 cpu, 1 powervr, 1 dsp, 1 iva03:16
SpeedEvilBluetooth, wlan, modem (2), ...03:16
ShadowJKalso, neon runs almost like a coprocessor too :)03:16
lcukShadowJK, those are not compute cores in the same sense03:17
lcukmy understanding was the others mentioned are some kind of mutated arm03:17
ZogG_wover9000 cores03:17
derfThe DSP is nothing like an ARM.03:17
ShadowJKI would guess that DSS2 is Display SubSystem version 2. It would do scaling and colourspace transform, I'd think.03:17
* lcuk is wrong then03:17
ZogG_wleg is not like an arm03:17
lcukand you would know derf, thanks \o03:17
DocScrutinizerthe DSP is, well, a DSP03:18
* ZogG_w is bored03:18
ShadowJKif DSP codecs was outputting RGB, I think you could composite it instead of going through Xv... If GPU/SGX has enough bandwidth for 800x480 RGB textures at 30fps, that is03:18
derfIt's VLIW capable of dispatching 8 instructions/clock (of various types, not arbitrarily), with 64 32-bit registers.03:19
ShadowJKSo like a Transmeta P4 :-(03:19
ShadowJK(yeah I intentionally mixed metaphors)03:19
derfYeah, somewhat.03:19
derfExcept it runs off 2W of power going full bore.03:20
derf(and is considered a power hog in embedded circles for using that much)03:20
SpeedEvilI doubt the DSP uses 2W full-bore.03:20
DocScrutinizerC64x+™ DSP and Video Accelerators (3525/3530 only)03:20
lcukShadowJK, problem is not explicit to textures03:20
lcukthe XV mode runs in arbritary resolution03:21
lcukso you send video through at 400*240 and it does not waste bandwidth using all 800*48003:21
lcukas would be currently required in RGB03:21
DocScrutinizerOMAP35x devices integrate the superscalar Cortex-A8 core and TI’s TMS320C64x+™ DSP into four applications processors: OMAP3503, OMAP3515, OMAP3525 and OMAP3530.03:22
*** blizzow has joined #maemo03:22
lcukShadowJK, it *might* be feasible to do it of course, but it would be such a waste of power and bandwidth03:22
ShadowJKlcuk, sure, but considering SGX is a 3D GPU, you'd assume it could stretch at 400x240 texture to 800x480 too03:23
ShadowJKYeah definitely03:23
blizzowI installed the telnet client today and suddenly, the SMS application does not display contact information.  Anyone know what might be going on here?  I've rebooted a couple of times and that has not helped.03:23
ShadowJKDSS is purpose built, SGX/3D/GPU can theoretically do the same thing but will be much more inefficient at it03:24
lcukis the LCD controller chip inside the omap or like the old n8x0 with an external one03:27
lcuk(was it epson)03:27
ShadowJKYeah it was epson03:27
ShadowJKAnd I think DSS is out LCD controller03:27
derfSpeedEvil: Yeah, I think the DSP by itself may only be 1W. But that's still huge.03:27
*** retro|cz has joined #maemo03:28
*** ludens has quit IRC03:28
derf... and more than an order of magnitude less than a P4 (or a Transmeta CPU).03:28
lcukShadowJK, also, by converting to 16but RGB you lose more definition03:28
lcukand people would complain of banding in movies :P03:28
ShadowJKderf, get some real world power consumption readings of playing video, it's about 1W *total* :-)03:28
derflcuk: That's what dithering is for.03:28
lcukderf, YUV does not require dithering03:28
derfSure it does. It's just dithering in hardware.03:29
lcukand it is lower ba ndwith03:29
derfOr if it isn't, it's still got banding.03:29
SpeedEvilderf: yeah03:29
lcukit sends data down the wire as far as it can in 24b03:29
lcukthe lcd itself might only be 18bit or whatever they are03:30
jonwilJaffa: ping03:30
derfYou mean in 12b.03:30
derfOr does it run at 4:2:2?03:30
SpeedEvilcan someone remind me of the right way to reboot the DSP if it's doing the 'I can't play any video at all' thingy?03:31
derfOkay, then 16b.03:31
lcukSpeedEvil, power button03:31
SpeedEvillcuk: I was assuming that was the improper way.03:31
lcukderf, no 8 bit grey, + 8 bit U + 8 bit V03:31
derfSpeedEvil: stop dsp/start dsp?03:32
derflcuk: But you don't have 8 bits of U and V per pixel.03:32
lcuksure you do03:32
derfNot if you're using 4:2:2 subsampling, you don't.03:33
SpeedEvilIt's not that - it's that BBC have changed something.03:33
lcuk420*240 is true colour03:33
lcukit is full colour, low resolution03:33
*** ludens has joined #maemo03:34
lcukderf that is the normal mode of videos since forever, and jpegs too03:35
derfNo, most vide is 4:2:0. But no one calls it 24bpp, either.03:35
derfYUV also has about 1/4 the gamut of RGB.03:37
SpeedEvil800mW - playing video at low volume over speakers, with LCD at minimum brightrness03:37
derf(well, more accurately, you lose about 2 bits in the conversion process)03:38
SpeedEvil(1.2W with mplayer)03:39
SpeedEvilAlso - meh. I now need to work ourt how to transcode videos that used to play fine.03:40
lcukderf, since the lcd cannot display 24bit anyway, that is not too bad03:40
*** geaaru has quit IRC03:40
derfSure. I'm just telling you that claiming it's "TrueColor" is a lie.03:41
DocScrutinizerlcd is pretty bad at BPP03:41
derfThey make 30-bit panels.03:41
DocScrutinizerthey make. yeah. The small embedded LCDs though are 12..16bpp03:42
lcukderf, roger03:42
derfYeah. 30-bit panels aren't cheap.03:42
* lcuk just never notices banding 03:42

DocScrutinizerlcuk: no. I admit I'm scratching my head trying to figure what that means04:27
lcukDocScrutinizer, me too04:27
lcukit surprised me immensely04:27
lcuksince world + dog says that file system is slower on meego04:28
lcukand that is the main difference I think04:28
lcukI doubt the compiler itself gained 50% optimisations04:28
lcukand the variations on maemo side are me trying different combinations of partitions to store onto04:30
DocScrutinizerI neither understand completely what's written there, nor do I think it's giving a good proof of anything, without proper explanation of the whole setup and tests done04:30
lcuksure, it is certianly not scientific04:30
lcukI just got build-essential + the -dev libs required and ran make04:31
lcukon both maemo and meego04:31
* lcuk should make a set of liq* specific tests :)04:32
DocScrutinizerhmm, seems to me a more standardized testbed would help a lot. Like e.g. use the absolutely identical source that uses the identical includes etc04:32
lcukit was identical source04:32
*** swc|666 has joined #maemo04:33
lcukbut obviously using (maemo|meego) compiler and headers04:33
DocScrutinizeryet way too complex to assure the same process taking place, regarding all the includes which might differ significantly between OS04:33
*** jonwil has quit IRC04:34
lcukyes DocScrutinizer04:34
ShadowJKUh, who the hell says MeeGo filesystem is slower?04:35
*** jonwil has joined #maemo04:35
DocScrutinizersame who tell eMMC is slower than NAND I guess04:35
ShadowJKI think Maemo had the advantage here anyway, because default Maemo setup has stuff on NAND, offloading emmc somewhat.04:36
ShadowJKFor comparative testing you'd have to have both Maemo and MeeGo running from the same devices04:37
DocScrutinizerthis comparision has way too many unknowns you'd need to define to make the whole thing a somewhat meaningful statement about anything04:37
ShadowJKBut still, I assume his setup was slanted in favour of Maemo, which makes brtfs' win all the more impressive :-)04:37
lcukShadowJK, it was from the same device04:38
lcukI booted meego, and just happened to time a build04:38
lcukthen got curious and booted same device to maemo04:38
lcukand repeated04:38
ShadowJKSo you've got Maemo running on MicroSD then?04:38
*** mitsutaka_ has joined #maemo04:38
lcukShadowJK, no04:39
lcuknormal system04:39
ShadowJKThis is what I meant04:39
ShadowJKI didn't mean device as in "N900"04:39
ShadowJKbut device as in NAND, emmc, microsd04:39
DocScrutinizerI'd use a 10liner shellscript to mkdir;cp $fn N$fn; fn=$Nfn04:39
lcukShadowJK, the problem is that meego slow bootup speed has been attributed to the filesystem04:40
DocScrutinizerfor {fn=2000; fn>0; fn--)04:40
DocScrutinizersth along that line04:40
ShadowJKlcuk, so does it run faster with ext3?04:40
luke-jrDocScrutinizer: why 10?04:40
lcukwhat confused me was just that building this library on meego I was expecting it to be slower04:40
DocScrutinizerwell, you can pack everything into one line, always04:41
luke-jrfor i in {10..1}; let j=i+1; mv $i $j; done04:41
lcukI don't know why04:41
lcukbut on meego it ran like shit off a shovel04:41
lcukand meego has cpu freq at 500mhz04:41
lcukit SHOULD be slower04:41
lcuk(I am really pleased it is not, but that is beside the point)04:42
*** mitsutaka has quit IRC04:42
ShadowJKlcuk, in reality I think the problem is that neither ext3 nor btrfs are tuned for flash based storage in any way (well btrfs somewhat, but it's mostly for SSD type storage, which is probably more harmful than useful for flash), and Maemo only accidentally rather than by design avoids driving the emmc/microsd into utter slowass operation.. Actually under Maemo you can hit the slow-as-molasses situations too by trying to extract easy-debian, for example..04:42
lcukShadowJK, yes, I use n900 itself to extract meego images using dd04:43
* SpeedEvil wonders if the SD committe will do something useful and define TRIM04:43
lcukand that operation takes just under an hour04:43
ShadowJKSpeedEvil, trim is kinda useless when most controllers (intra-SD ones) are so braindead they wouldn't have one fucking clue what to do with trim04:43
SpeedEvilShadowJK: I am unsure. I've read conflicting things about SD controllers.04:44
ShadowJKSpeedEvil, well it's the software on them that makes the difference, and most of it is braindead04:44
SpeedEvilThey seem to have at least arm cortex class CPU on them according to reports I've seen.04:44
ShadowJKexcept maybe sandisk, but sandisk has been saying "Our ExtremeFFS technology kicks ass" for years, it's just that they're trying to monetize it so hard that they've actually sold about 0 copies of it so far, when it really should be sitting in every SD card they're selling...04:45
SpeedEvilIn practice - for many apps - flash smartness is quite unimportant.04:46
ShadowJKNot that I'm saying sandisk cards are shit, they're about 5 magnitudes of performance better than Kingston, but it could be so much better if the industry tried to get their shit together.04:46
SpeedEvilIt doesn't help noticably for recording large contiguous files04:46
ShadowJKSpeedEvil, if you consider one single app in isolation, sure, it's extremely unimportant04:47
SpeedEvilFor OS use, it's not so great.04:47
ShadowJKBut you've got like 100 processes running, and each one creates IO load :-)04:47

ShadowJKI have no clue who linaro is, what they do, but they seem to know more about flash, and trying to do something about it, than companies that have been trying to use flash for years...04:49
SpeedEvilBut not quite.04:50
ShadowJKThat nokia hacked N900 kernel is somewhat swap-linear actually :-)04:50
SpeedEvilBasically, for swap, for obvious reasons, you can drop the whole persistant block mapping shit.04:50
*** Extends has joined #maemo04:51
SpeedEvilWhich does wonders for complexity.04:51
DocScrutinizerlcuk: see, meego might use different fs tuning settings (see swappolube et al)04:51
*** Malin_ has joined #maemo04:51
SpeedEvilAlso 'Finally, the superblock records its own age as an increasing 32 bit number, and a checksum. '04:51
ShadowJKN900 kernel keeps track of "biggest free area", and writes sequentially there, and when exhausted, jumps to next "biggest free are". As time goes on, these free areas shrink to stupidly small in size, and you hit the classic "my device suddenly feels slower after 2-3 days uptime, what's going on?"04:51
*** akeripper has quit IRC04:52
SpeedEvilIdeally, you don't want to do that, if you can avoid it, as you want to not ensure 100% of the time (well - 50%) incrementing the superblock counter will require a block erase04:52
ShadowJKSwappolube people are kinda funny. They're on the extremes of "maximum interactivity, minimum throughput", and "maximum throughput, minimum interactivity", and randomly flip parameters between the two extremes :D04:52

ebzzryHi! Can /usr/lib/microb-engine/ be safely moved (on a running system) to somewhere, then have that path symlink to the new path?04:54
ShadowJKSpeedEvil, from a performance point of view, the swap storage becomes slow long before it's "filled"04:54
SpeedEvilstop microb04:54
ShadowJK"The superblock is stored in first allocation group on the medium, but may be at changing addresses within the allocation group. Only the superblock with the highest version number and a valid checksum gets used when mounting the medium. "04:54
ebzzrystop it first? Then move it then start it again?04:54
SpeedEvilShadowJK: By filled, I mean that it has completed a linear write04:55
SpeedEvilebzzry: yes04:55

delt[pts/2][root@deimos]:/media/disk-2# file 2gig.img07:17
delt2gig.img: x86 boot sector; partition 1: ID=0x6, starthead 0, startsector 1, 131071 sectors; partition 2: ID=0x83, starthead 3, startsector 131072, 3530752 sectors; partition 3: ID=0x82, starthead 3, startsector 3661824, 270336 sectors, code offset 0xb807:17

DocScrutinizerwell, we're yet to see the really good blast. I doubt the facts listed in those jaf status reports a lot. For example when they inject seawater into pressure vessel / core since days, then I'd expect those reactors safe, and also lots of steam escaping from all 3 buildings. But they say they even stopped containment venting, so what's going to happen with that sea water injected into those few m^3 core pressure vessel11:47
jacekowskiit's going to blow up11:47
SpeedEvilDocScrutinizer: as time goes down, decay heat reduces.11:48
DocScrutinizerI guess they're feed seawater to core by the teaspoon11:48
*** Sicelo has left #maemo11:48
jacekowskiSpeedEvil: yeah, but it takes like couple months for it to reduce to reasonable values11:48
SpeedEvilAt some point, decay heat will reduce far enough that conduction can validly cool the core, to the point at which the pressure vessel can shut the valves11:48
DocScrutinizernah, of course that's mere BS & lies11:49

robbiethe1stLet me just say this: If we can build some sort of converter that can convert heat energy to electricity effeciently at temperatures <80F, that would solve a lot of problems. But without something like that, solar panels and other renewable energy just won't cut it everywhere. Hydro would, and does... but only in limited areas.12:01

*** diegohcg has joined #maemo15:52
villagernot a great emulator, but at least something15:52
alteregoWell, that's why the Nokia SDK with maemo deployment is good, ctrl+r and it copies and runs it on the device.15:54
alteregoscratchbox is a little more combersome, but I have the same thing anyway, like ctrl+r runs my project in qt creater under scratchbox, when I've set the target to scratchbox15:55
alteregoI usually use a mixture of both, I use scratchbox to create packages though.15:56

hajpupnik: more RAM... Thats my only complaint... perhaps dualcore cpu, but i guess that the problems i have with maxed out cpu is due to the software being originally written to suit PC processors, and then ported to the N900..21:04

DocScrutinizerMohammadAG: I'd think two basic things: 1) most kernel modules can live in /opt aka eMMC, as not needed for boot. 2) if those are taking too much space, and you want to get rid of some - - so what, just do it. shouldn't be hard to rm some .ko, then run debmod -a or somesuch23:15
DocScrutinizerto be more specific: if we can't have installable modules, then install 'all' modules and give user an option to get rid of useless cruft23:16

DocScrutinizer"ewww, PK pkg DL is 14MB" - so WAHT?23:17
