IRC log of #maemo for Thursday, 2007-01-11

JaffaAleksandyr: MUD's my auto-builder for Maemo for relatively simple ports from upstream sources:
*** xan has quit IRC00:00
AleksandyrJaffa: interesting concept00:00
framerateAleksandyr: heh I know, I'm just not patient today :)00:00
qgil" Jaffa: I suspect it's all a ruse to get everyone running about releasing stuff they're sitting on." - I don't think so00:00
AleksandyrJaffa: it's quite a bit like what I'm already doing now ;)00:01
*** kabtoffe has quit IRC00:01
JaffaThe aim is two fold: a) simplify porting process for things  like vim, privoxy, rsync, netcat, etc. and b) ensure that the mud-builder team (well, me ATM) are responsible for the headache of uploading them to the extras repo and other release management stuff once someone's done the interesting bit of doing a port.00:01
Jaffaqgil: Ah, I seem to have left off the smiley ;-)00:01
Aleksandyretrunko: bwhahahahah00:01
qgilJaffa: just checking  ;)00:02

JaffaAleksandyr: if you fancy having a play in your totally unbusy hacking life, the Subversion's now up-to-date; should just be a case of checking it out into Scratchbox and doing './mud build cal'00:04
koen"cheap m4em0, by now"00:04
JaffaAleksandyr: The aim is that it'll fix debs so they're AI-compatible too (i.e Section: user/...), include X-Maemo-Icon etc.00:04
framerategnuite posted a news update about maemo mapper, apparently it's being annoying to compile :(00:06
AleksandyrJaffa: oh, I imagine I'll be contributing to mud before long --- if it works, I can obsolete myself ;)00:06
AleksandyrJaffa: it sounds like mud could have done 75% of the lifting as far as JamVM/etf00:06
koenframerate: note the irony on that00:06
*** greentux_ has joined #maemo00:08

tzzI got the entire Maemo 3.0 environment running, it was not too bad in the end.  Thanks to everyone for the help.00:09
*** jpetersen has joined #maemo00:09
*** greentux_ has quit IRC00:09
AleksandyrI thought one of the changes in Maemo 3.0 brought about an improved maemo-installer script ;)00:09
tzzxephyr runs too00:09
c0ffeexephyr for gentoo is USE="kdrive" emerge xorg-server00:10
tzzit's pretty good, I just had to ignore the docs :)00:10
tzzbasically, just `apt-get install scratchbox-core scratchbox-devkit-debian scratchbox-devkit-doctools scratchbox-devkit-perl scratchbox-libs scratchbox-toolchain-cs2005q3.2-glibc-arm scratchbox-devkit-cputransp scratchbox-toolchain-cs2005q3.2-glibc-i386 xserver-xephyr'00:11
* Aleksandyr is rather hoping that the eclipse-scratchbox integration project will work with M3.0 ;)00:11
tzzand then I ran the installer script, and everything worked00:11
framerateI'm off.. cheers guys00:11

kenderguerby, what is what osso-xterm haven't got and xterm yes?00:22
guerbykender, osso-xterm has probably a smoother interface to the N770/800 virtual keyboard that a regular xterm00:23
guerbykender, otherwise it's just an xterm00:23
*** greentux__ has quit IRC00:24
*** greentux_ has joined #maemo00:24
kenderguerby, then, why you want xterm?00:25
guerbykender, ps, top, cp, mv, dmesg, dd, cat, more ....00:25
kenderI see00:25
guerbykender, old time unix user :)00:25

guerbyssh to another unix machine00:26
kender;-)00:26 with ssh00:26
atlaany information yet available on the n800 developer device program? are only approved developers receiving codes?00:26
guerbykender, I use rsync00:27
kenderguerby, but, those doesn't come with busybox?00:27
guerbykender, they're on applicationcatalog200600:27
guerbyI assume they'll soon be here for n80000:27
guerbyhey first browser crash00:28
Aleksandyratla: I have yet to hear of anyone receiving a code00:28
guerbyon ...00:28
kenderguerby, hehe00:28
atlabut i guess only developers are receiving them that already wrote software using the maemo platform?00:28
kenderone of their product crashing in their own page00:29
Aleksandyratla: nobody knows the judging criteria, but that is the assumption, yes00:29
*** koen has quit IRC00:30
atlak thx00:30
gpdOS2007 Tested Apps page says python 2.4 from maemo repository -- i don't see it - do they mean minstral?00:30
atlaany speculations yet about nokia reducing the price of the 770 more than 350e00:31
kenderguerby, what kernel does n800 have?00:31
gpdkender: 2.6.18-imap100:32
kender:) great00:32
guerbykender cat /proc/version says 2.6.18-omap1 compiled 19Dec200600:32
guerbyI have 2.2006.51-6 (out of the box no upgrade)00:32
gpdso in general -- should mistral stuff work on bora if it doesn't use any graphics? [rule of thumb?]00:33
qgilatla, do you think there are 500 developers that have already written code using the maemo platform?00:34
atlawould be my guess00:34
atlaif you only refer to it as "written code using maemo platform" :)00:35
Aleksandyrqgil: There are easily 500 developers by that definition ;)00:35
atlanot in terms of written a whole usable application00:35
qgilatla: I was quoting you   :)00:35
guerbywow flasher-2.0 is 495344 bytes and  3.0 is 4023600:35
kenderguerby, flasher 2.0 is static00:36
kenderguerby, flasher 3.0 dinamic00:36
kenderthat's all00:36
guerbykender, probably00:36
*** ferulo has quit IRC00:36
guerbyinteresting I didn't have to upgrade the OS, so I guess only early built N800 have an older firmware00:37
gpdguerby: i got mine on sunday and it was 47.2000:37
kenderso, mine will have it the last, nice :)00:38
guerbygpd, orderer monday got it today (could have been tuesday if I had catched the UPS guy), came from brussels00:38
gpdso should i add the mistral repository to my app manager to install some of these 'tested 2007' apps?00:39
gpdi am slightly disturbed by this00:39
guerbygpd me too so I didn't do it, I just added the suggested bora one for X Term00:39
*** etrunko has quit IRC00:40
guerbyno other for now00:40
gpdi suppose i can just reflash it -- i fear the brick00:40
guerbygpd, I'm not that in a hurry, still things to play with without fear of breaking :)00:40
gpdya -- but i am a day ahead of you ;)00:41
atlathere are lots of apps in the applicationcatalog00:41
gpdbored already! (joke)00:41
atla(regarding the amount of maemo developers)00:41
*** keesj has joined #maemo00:41
gpdatla: on the tested page it says python -- but the .deb from mistral has dependencies - so would require a hunt and gather00:41
Aleksandyratla: application catalog + garage + ITT + #maemo + [maemo-developers]00:42
guerbygpd, you're braver than me :)00:42
atlaso enough00:42
Jaffa+ open source people contributing to the underlying software (apparently)00:42
atlais opengl available on maemo?00:42
atlanot even some kind of mesa?00:42

*** _k-s_ has quit IRC00:45
guerbyframerate, I didn't have to flash since mine came with 2.2006.51-6 and I have no pb with xterm from bora00:46
framerateHmm mine worked before the flash:(00:47
framerateYeah i got it from bora :(00:48
*** catoblepa has joined #maemo00:48
kenderany way to rescue of a fail flashing process?00:48
kenderIf you reboot it, I mean00:49
kenderfor example, like the boot_wait of the linksys routers00:49
kenderor, similar00:49
guerbyframerate, how does it fail? did you try the usual: ./flasher-2.0 --enable-rd-mode --set-rd-flags=no-lifeguard-reset00:50
catoblepaI've a little question: which is the name of wireless gui in my nokia. I try to find it with ps but I failed :P00:50
framerateXterm fails when i try to run it, os is fine00:51
nomiscatoblepa: you mean the applet in the top of the desktop window?00:52
*** ssvb has quit IRC00:53
guerbyframerate, no idea then00:54

*** framerate has joined #maemo00:58
framerateNope, still no xterm00:58
Aleksandyranyone know where the list of Maemo/Hildon stock icons are? All I can get are the GTK ones00:59
catoblepanomis: yes, but if I would know which is the executable that draw the gui?01:00
*** metajack has joined #maemo01:01
metajackhey all.  just got an N800 and set up the dev environment :) this thing rocks01:01
nomiscatoblepa: there is no "executable" for the gui, just a "shared object". You won't see this in the process listing.01:02
metajackshould i be worried about the copious errors when doing and running maemo_hello?01:02
metajacklike "Failed to load plugin Contact Plugin"01:03
JaffaThat's fine01:03
JaffaThe Contact plugin only exists on the device itself01:03
metajackok.  so its not expected that i test things in the emulator? :)01:04
metajackor at least nothing that uses the contact plugin, etc01:04
JaffaNo, the contact plugin isn't part of Maemo: it's Nokia value-add01:04
catoblepanomis: thanks. can I have the source of this "shared object"? (I don't know if the sources are free, really)01:06
*** kender has quit IRC01:06
metajackwhat about: "maemo-launcher: error rising the oom shield" or "matchbox: WARNING: failed to load /usr/share/matchbox/mbnoapp.xpm"01:06
JaffaSounds fine01:07
metajack"execl: No such file or directory" ?01:08
* metajack is just trying to make sure everything is set up correctly :)01:08
JaffaIf it works, it's right ;-)01:08
*** framerate has quit IRC01:08
*** framerate2 has joined #maemo01:08
metajackwell the image i got was different from that in the docs slightly.  i was missing the little contact app icon on the left side.  other than that it seemed to be the same.01:09
framerate2So noone has seen or heard anything about other people having trouble with xterm with the newest N800 OS?01:09
framerate2I find it odd I'd be the only one01:09
metajacki figured i'd make sure the errors didn't mean i missed a piece01:09
*** pdz has quit IRC01:09
framerate2Xterm is kinda crucial01:10
framerate2I didn't think this tablet would give me this much of a headache :(01:13
* framerate2 cries in the corner.01:14
keesjframerate2, perhaps you can install ssh and see what the error is?01:14
keesjhmm you need a password I guess01:15
framerate2How would I start ssh without the xterm?01:15
nomiscatoblepa: neither do I.01:15
framerate2It worked yesterday, prior to my memory card crash and white screen of death and then OS reinstall01:15
keesjon the 770 is is started by default if you installed openssh01:15
framerate2anyone know if compusa offers a satisfaction based return?01:18
tzzsometimes, but you may get hit with a restocking fee, 15%01:18
tzzI boycott CompUSA personally01:18
tzzthat's why I ordered my N800 from Nokia direct01:19
framerate2I just want this thing to work so bad :(01:19
framerate2Is there a way to clear the memory on the device without hooking up to USB ? maybe something else is messedup, could clear memory and start fresh with xterm first?01:20
tzztry looking at logs with the web browser, using file:///01:20
JaffaHmm, interesting: FM radio in N800? Certainly seems to have the s/w support01:20
tzzdon't know much about clearing without a reinstall though, sorry01:20
framerate2where would the relevent log files be for a crashing app?01:22
*** daf`` has quit IRC01:23
tzzdon't know, /var/log usually but Maemo doesn't store much log data IIRC01:24
framerate2yeah, nothing there either :(01:25
*** daf` has joined #maemo01:25
framerate2I don't understand how noone else is having trouble with N800 and xterm yet :(  I seem to be the only one01:25
c0ffeenoone has a N80001:26
JaffaEveryone's waiting, with baited breath, for the lucky dip.01:27
framerate2quite a few people have it here and on the forums... and they all seem to have xterm working :(01:27
*** matt_c has quit IRC01:27
framerate2and I had it yesterday, before OS update01:27
Jaffaframerate2: OK, noone awake has an N800 :-(01:27
framerate2hah except me, with ANOTHER problem01:27
gpdi have n80001:27
c0ffeenoone that might be able to help you01:27
tzzhey this is REALLY cool.  I just compiled Emacs CVS (22) and it works with the i386 target!  Menus, etc. are working under GTK, including tear-off menus.  I'm compiling for ARM right now to see if that will work.01:27
gpdworking xterm01:27
framerate2gpd did you flash to newest OS?01:28
framerate2I flashed yesterday after all my mem card problems, and today put xterm back on and it won't load01:28
Jaffatzz: if you look at my Sylpheed changes you'll see the easiest way of Hildonising it. Check the Subversion link off
c0ffeewhy is there no gazpacho in bora?01:28
gpdosso-xterm works for me -01:28
gpdlet me check version number01:29
tzzthanks Jaffa, I'll look into it.  I don't think it needs much, really, to be useful, just key remapping and an icon.  Everything I tested works under the x86 target.01:30
tzzjaffa: so I may build something quickly for people to use, and then work on hildonizing it little by little01:31
Jaffatzz: makes sense01:31
*** greentux_ has quit IRC01:33
framerate2gpd: where you get that version? all I see is 0.13.mh13 from bora repos01:34
framerate2I don't see the bora2 version01:34
tzzEmacs has stuff like ERC, Gnus, etc. that don't need external software to provide functionality, so this could be very useful.  I work in the Gnus project and know all about it: you can set up multiple IMAP and NNTP sources (among others).  My main concern is keyboard accessibility, I may need to add something like the XTerm "send control char" menu.01:34
tzzwith the 770 this wouldn't work, not enough memory, but 128 MB RAM should be enough for a functional Emacs.01:34
trenkaI was running  emacs and gnus on 77001:35
hubtzz: more that enough01:35
ntrsframerate2, osso-xterm for bora works fine on my N800 too.01:36
tzztrenka: I didn't know about an Emacs package for the 770, I would have used that01:36
framerate2ntrs did you reflash to the new OS that came out monday?01:36
ntrsframerate2, and SSH and pretty much any other mistral application (770) I installed01:36
framerate2everything else works except xterm, it worked before the flash01:36
ntrsYes, I reflashed to the latest version, the one that came out monday01:36
trenkaI did not make a package. Just make; make install. Remove unneeded and copy to /usr/local on 77001:37
framerate2well I don't understand why it's working for you then :(01:37
trenkaJust to check if it is possible01:37
framerate2I can't do anything without a terminal :(01:37
tzztrenka: I didn't get scratchbox working with Maemo 2.x (my kernel was too new) so I never got that working.  Oh well, with Maemo 3.x I should be able to start building packages.01:38

Aleksandyrugh. These past three hours of pipe hacking remind me of why I stopped writing C in the first place02:23
AleksandyrI'm fairly sure normal people don't fantasize about going back in time and shooting whoever decided to make linux pipes unidirectional.02:24
c0ffeeyou just ruined my night, man02:25
c0ffeei'll have nightmares of bidirectional pipes02:25
c0ffeeyou can't possible imagine the pain of that02:25
Aleksandyrin Inferno, it's trivial ;) other kernels I could see being problematic02:26
Aleksandyrif we had Inferno-style channels, this mplayer GUI would be finished by now02:26
c0ffeebut having send and receive on different channels is so much nicer02:26
Aleksandyrnot when you haven't written a C pipes app in...three years?02:27
Aleksandyrand in the intervening time have grown used to popen2,3,4.02:27
c0ffeeyou can hack together such a functions in no time02:28

c0ffeelinux doesnt have daemonspace02:30
Aleksandyrerm, yes it does. Not as explicitly as userspace and kernelspace02:30
c0ffeeso how does daemonspace differ from userspace?02:30
Aleksandyrthe big one would be standard I/O/E are closed.02:31
c0ffeesounds a bit academic to me02:31
Aleksandyrwriteup of the problem I hit:
AleksandyrI will grant you it's an odd problem.02:32
c0ffeeso daemonspace is where you really have to think before you hack02:33
Aleksandyryes, as opposed to hacking, releasing, and -then- thinking. Maybe. :D02:34

JaffaThere's nice docs on how to do an IM for Maemo 3 now02:44

pokute_Will it, after all, it's a bit different than IT2007?02:45
*** metajack has quit IRC02:46
JaffaMaemo 3 is the base for IT2007. Bit of Maemo 3 might be able to run on IT2006 (if we hack 'em)02:46

pokute_That was what I was thinking too.02:47
pokute_For example, maemo 3 may have api improvements that 770 could benefir of too.02:47
Piohas nokia given word on their intention to backport features from maemo 3 to the 770 releases?02:48

pokute_I think API stuff is most likely, as anything that would mean new appliactions for 770 which would also benefit N80002:51

pigeoniirc it's in the "error console" window, it shows js errors as well as css errors.07:39

jtokashmetajack, the 770 opera's opera.ini when told to store the js error log on disk ignores you07:43

metajacki recommend globalpopconspiracy.com07:52
metajackthey also have a vorbis stream07:52
gpdhave you found a way to add the streams to the player without ending up with just an ip address?07:52
metajacki believe that the 3 stations from virgin are also available in vorbis too (the three that nokia promotes on the tabby site)07:52
gpdsomething like streamtuner would be nice -- gives you all the stations right there07:53
gpdi suppose there must be a site that aggregates them07:53
metajackwell has an interface for xml stream listings for that directory07:53
metajackyou need regexp foo for the shoutcast directory07:54

keesjpahartik, it is just no my choice.08:11
pahartikkeesj: that sounds like freedom... but I did not understand that reference to "elisa"08:13
keesjelisa was this Artificial intelligence program. Of course it did not care about what your problems where. but when it did not know what to answer it would say things like "how does that make you feel"  . perhaps if my spelling was better you would have understood . Here is a javascript :) version
pahartikkeesj: oh, I see... :)08:17
*** phil|out is now known as philipl08:21
keesjI think links or links2 supports mouse event so that might be a good alternative for you08:21
pahartikkeesj: Lynx supports navigation by pointer device... "w3m" does too...08:25
pahartikkeesj: but Opera of Maemo is well adapted for that environment08:27
keesjThe ability to scroll anywhere on the screen is what makes it usable for me. Some 770 applkication don't do that08:29
keesjI guess the Hildon framework doesn't08:29
pahartikkeesj: I configured arrow keys to scroll on Opera by default (left/right and page up/down)... that was improvement, as I do not always have to hold stylus to move across document08:32
keesjpahartik, what is this w3m thing , it displays images in my xterm
pahartikkeesj: two problems I have encountered with Opera of Maemo: I could not make it to switch between "Author mode" and "User mode" while running... and I did not find way to edit cookies (if I accidentally accepted unwanted cookie and wanted to get rid of it immediately)08:35
keesjpahartik, I don't use the key's much I must say , but by default oprea does the scrolling is I press the down key a bit longer08:35
keesjWhat is author v.s. user mode?08:36
pahartikkeesj: basically, it would switch between CSS suggested by author of document and one I created08:37
pahartikkeesj: desktop Opera supports that... there is button in GUI as well as key assigned to that08:38
pahartikkeesj: I know that "w3m" is capable of displaying images, but I have never tried that feature... over here, Opera is also set to not load images by default08:42
jtokashodd that maemo mapper isn't on this list:
keesjI guess I will be a hell if some programs are still in the mistral repository and others not.08:45

qgilGoogle would call it "beta" release  ;)18:19

lle2making a full release would mean a 4-6 month cycle18:20
partjust dump herring on a 77018:20
Takbecause both myself and my fiancee need the 770 to be stable18:21

TakI guess what I'm saying is that I'm disappointed that it looks like a halfass bora backport effort instead of an effort to stabilize (whatever the latest developer release's fishname is)18:29
hubglobalization is clearly NOT for consumers18:29
qgilTak: I'm just starting to learn what does "stable" mean for Nokia, but basically many (technically) stable GPL software cannot be presented by Nokia as an official consumer release, just like that - because of the implications it has in terms of QA, customer support and such18:29

Takwhich seems to me like a loss compared to just moving forward with the herring (or whatever) software18:37
lle2Tak: I understand this so that the community will be involved in the development and testing phase, so it's not going to be just a simply shoved out there18:39
dwdIt sounds to me like Nokia want to involve (and use) the community more. All sounds good, actually.18:40

danielslle2: but if it's a planar video and unobscured, we convert into a custom format, dump that into the framebuffer, then use hailstorm to do the conversion and scaling.  this involves watching for clip notifications and migrating back and forth between dispc and hailstorm silently, blocking updates as you go so you don't issue one with an incorrect colourspace. :)20:07

danielslle2: yeah, it's pretty classy.  works surprisingly well, though.20:08

AleksandyrIIRC it's about 4:1 IVs from 128 to 64. Not sure what the IV broadcast rate is.21:55
Pioonly wep i ever cracked was 6421:55
Aleksandyrwhy would 128 broadcast IVs more frequently?21:56
Pioi think i had about 250k IVs from an arp replay i was doing when it cracked21:56
myrenIV's are generated through packet injection no?21:57
Pioor just normal network traffic21:57
*** atla_ has quit IRC21:58
Piobut if the target network is largely idle then ideally you manage to inject packets into it to generate more IVs among the associated clients21:58

Aleksandyrsolution is a deauth storm, again IIRC.21:58

AleksandyrHGFB: more /etc/sudoers, find the mount command that OS2007 uses, and sudo that.22:37

AleksandyrHGFB: install becomeroot then?22:39
tzzI can't wait for my N800 to get here so I can start testing Emacs on it...22:39
AleksandyrHGFB: or try sudo /usr/sbin/mmc-mount /dev/mmcblk0p1 /media/mmc122:40
Takemacs must be a blast without a bt kb22:40
Aleksandyr(which is the 770's command to mount the MMC)22:40
tzztak: I'm going to add menus to send M-x C-x etc.22:40
Pioare there shortcuts in osso-xterm to do ctrl sequences? i hate doing that tools -> send ctrl thing22:40
HGFBI can't sudo Aleksandyr. I don't have a password and becomeroot warns you can brick your tablet. I'd rather not try that on a 800 without confirmation it works22:41
tzztak: plus hardware keys of course22:41
AleksandyrHGFB: Yes, you can sudo very specific things, that's how some UIs function in OS2006 and I highly doubt they altered that in 2007.22:41
tzztak: stuff like Gnus and dired is already very good without a keyboard in Emacs btw.22:42
JaffaHGFB: install the ssh server and ssh root@ then22:42
HGFBAleksandyr, It's still asking for a sudo password22:43
AleksandyrHGFB: Furthermore, becomeroot doesn't brick your tablet, you doing bad things as root bricks your tablet. Even then, an OS reflash fixes it.22:43
AleksandyrHGFB: hrm, on the 770, all the sudo commands you can do are NOPASSWD.22:43
JaffaAleksandyr: well, we don't know for *sure* that becomeroot's modification of /etc/sudoers won't leave it semi-broken.22:43
framerateHGFB: I have becomeroot on my 800 with no problems seen yet22:43
AleksandyrJaffa: framerate makes the fourth person I've heard say it works on their N80022:44
tzzunder the SDK_X86 target in maemo 3, un-Hildonized applications still work properly when minimized, unlike 1.x/2.x as I remember.  Is that also true for the real N800 environment?22:44
Jaffaah, there we go.22:44
JaffaAleksandyr: fair enough, I'll add that to my mental file22:44
AleksandyrJaffa: I try not to brick other people's tablets. It's a karma thing :D22:44
JaffaAleksandyr: :)22:44

HGFBmounting /dev/mmcblk0p1 on /media/mmc1 failed: no such file or directory22:47
Ph3NoMeN0and what about samba? is it possible with a N800 to share a folder on a Mac or a Linux Machine ?22:48
HGFBRight. Done it properly now. I'm getting device or resource busy.22:49
HGFBDoes anyone know what might be stopping the card from being mounted?22:51
shackanoh damn22:53
AleksandyrHGFB: tried restarting the device, I assume?22:53
HGFBNo effect22:53
shackanI don't have enough space on / and just fscked everything up when moving /scratchbox on another partition22:53
AleksandyrHGFB: output of "mount" ?22:53
HGFBDevice or resource busy22:54
atlais there also gtkmm available on n770 and n800?22:54
AleksandyrHGFB: mount with no options says that?22:55
HGFBAh. I see what you're getting at. One second22:55
framerateHGFB: my n800 says "card in use" too for the card in came with (after a day) and is now corrupt22:56
AleksandyrHGFB: I'm paying attention, I swear :D22:56

HGFBMount shows nothing is mounted on mmc122:56
AleksandyrHGFB: swapon -s22:57
AleksandyrHGFB: it's not mmc1 that's busy, it's /dev/mmcblk* I suspect22:57
HGFB-s isn't an option22:57

HGFBI could probably fix this by reflashing but two of us have this problem so far. It might be better if we can figure out what's broken22:58
frameratek guess it's not related to my issue :(22:59
HGFBSomeone else with the problem23:00
*** jtokash has quit IRC23:00
framerateIs there an image slideshow program ported to the N800 yet? This thing is begging to be a small digital photoframe23:02
Takthere's the Images utility23:03
framerateI didn't think it had a slideshow, but I may ahve missed it23:03
roopeNope, unfortunately.23:04
roopeTigert was talking about this small app to contact flickr and run slideshows of the pictures of your flickr contacts. Now that would be nice.23:04
framerateHmm, in SDL a slideshow would take like an hour to write, I'd think23:04
HGFBI've fixed it23:06
HGFBAnd discovered something interesting about my new toy23:06
HGFBIf I have the power cable connected shutting down doesn't actually shut down. Once I rebooted properly it worked again23:06
* HGFB feels dumb23:06
HGFBAh well. At least I got becomeroot out of it :)23:06
