IRC log of #maemo for Friday, 2007-02-09

nomisbergie: nice. What database do you use?00:00
disqone could also do that with access point data maybe00:00
disqthere was a symbian app like that. it recorded the cell tower stuff and you could then save places, it would toggle events00:01
disqenable call forwarding when i'm in the office, that kind of thing00:01
bergiedisq: this uses WiFi access points00:01
disqgreat then :)00:02
matt_cbergie: awesome stuff!00:03
bergienext point is to figure out what to do with the position info00:03
bergiesome ideas:00:03
bergie* Automatically setting system clock to correct timezone00:03
bergie* Opening Maemo Mapper in user's present location00:03
bergie* Opening Maemo Stars in user's present location00:03
bergie* Setting instant messaging status based on location preferences (the "I don't want my clients to call when I'm at home" scenario)00:03
bergie* Populating a "Wikipedia pages near you" feed to RSS reader and Maemo Mapper POI database00:03
bergiefrom our README file ;-)00:03
matt_cbergie: what info is the plazes API basing your location on?00:05
bergieyou actually send a hash of the access point's MAC address to Plazes00:06
disqbergie: is it read/write? can i submit plazes from the tablet? or do i need the pc app?00:06
bergieand if they don't know about the AP you can enter where it is located00:06
bergiedisq: we open the browser to edit form on if the plaze is a new one00:06
bergieno native editor yet ;-)00:06
disqah, ok that's enough. at least on the n80000:07
disq(the 770 is slow as hell after using the n800 for a week now)00:07
bergieyeah... the Plazes site didn't work correctly on 770, but seems to do it with N80000:07

Captain_Capacitogot a quick question I was hoping someone could answer07:02
*** mitcheloc has joined #Maemo07:02
Captain_Capacitocare to give it a shot?07:02
konfoojust ask07:02
Captain_CapacitoOk well, I am trying to install the FM radio app. However, I seem to lack the package "libosso" and I can't seem to figure out how I should go about installing that07:04
* gpd yawns07:04
gpdapt-get install fmradio worked for me07:04
konfoo maybe youre missing a repo07:04
konfoogpd: same..07:04
Captain_Capacitoheh... ok.... now how would I go about getting a command line? :/07:04
gpdI still can't believe it has a radio! :D07:04
konfoogpd: indeed :)07:04
gpdI am an NPR-O-Holic07:05
konfoowould be even better if it had AM07:05
gpdThat USB OTG stuff is also promising07:05
gpdi thought there was a dev post taht it *didn't* have OTG07:05
konfooyeah i saw that as well07:05
konfoo excellent07:07
konfoowhere is the n800 canola already07:07
JoshTriplettDoes any documentation on the FM radio exist, for aspiring developers of a Free Software fmradio replacement?07:08
[mbm]you'll probably have to rip apart the nokia app07:08
[mbm]if it's just a few ioctls you might be able to do it with strace07:09
*** rkaway1 has quit IRC07:09
JoshTriplettHaven't looked at the fmradio app yet.07:09
JoshTriplettBut I plan to.07:10
[mbm]had it loaded here.. it was a "wow cool they hid an fm radio in here" and then 5 minutes later I was bored with it07:11
gpdi normally have to carry my fm radio nike player around - not anymore07:11
JoshTriplett[mbm]: I have a few good FM radio stations around here.  And with something other than the Nokia application, perhaps recording off the FM radio might work. :)07:11
[mbm]JoshTriplett: well, the fm radio only works when you have the headphones connected as your antenna07:12
[mbm]otherwise you just get static07:12
JoshTriplett[mbm]: Plus, often the hardware has more capabilities than the software exposes; perhaps it could tune more broadly, for instance.07:12
gpdI live in LA so there are plenty of FM stations07:12
JoshTriplett[mbm]: *the* headphones or *any* headphones?07:12
gpdany headphones07:13
[mbm]well, any headphones07:13
konfoogpd: all spanish :P07:13
gpdkonfoo: si07:13
JoshTriplett[mbm]: Well, I use the headphones most of the time when not at home.07:13
konfoogpd: where i LA are you at07:13
Captain_CapacitoJusted added all those repositories and I still get the same thing :(07:13
gpdWestside baby -- around UCLA07:13
[mbm]I carry the n800 with me but I usually don't carry any cables or accessories07:13

*** konfoo has joined #maemo07:46
Taknice, thanks07:46
disqcpu transparency looks interesting07:49
disqthough i prefer using the full maemo environment (ie. install one deb, then scp the binaries with each new build)07:50
kulvebut you need cpu transp. to compile those binaries07:52
kulvecompiling one .c can be done by just crosscompiling, but e.g. configure runs all kinds of tests that requires cpu transparency to be able to run arm binaries07:53
kulveconfigure e.g. compiles a binary and tests that it can run it07:53
*** Captain_Capacito has quit IRC07:54
[mbm]that's just lazy people not writing configure scripts correctly07:54
kulve[mbm]: wrong07:54
kulveit's normal behaviour for configure to do those07:54
kulveunless you explicitly crosscompile stuff, but that's painful07:54
[mbm]I know it's "normal" to see that but it's the wrong behavior07:54
disqcrosscompiling works for me, always worked for me07:55
kulvedisq: heh, try crosscompiling e.g. perl07:55
disqif it doesn't crosscompile then obviously the sdk has problems07:55
[mbm]I mean the configure script should accept the --build and --target options and use the correct compiler07:55
[mbm]and I've lost track of how many packages didn't even do that correctly07:56
tkohow do you crosscompile something that builds a C file which generates something required during the build time?07:57
tkoonly yesterday I heard you can't even "just compile" X07:57
disqah, good tko is here :)07:57
tkoonly a few minutes07:58
disqtko, do you know who designed the current sapwood themes? wish i could put a bounty on their head.. what's with the gutters in HildonWindow, grrr07:58
[mbm]tko: like I said, you set the configure options so that those helper scripts it compiles are compiled for the cpu you're building on and not that of the target07:58
disqi was able to reduce the left border but can't do that with the right one without screwing up the theme (since images are left-aligned)07:59
[mbm]usually you can get away with: CC=arm-whatever-gcc; HOSTCC=gcc08:00
[mbm]export those into the environment and run configure08:00
kulveit's easy to crosscompile e.g. kernel, because it's meant to be crosscompiled. But SB allows as to just pretend we are doing native compililation and compile about any package08:00
[mbm]kulve: yeah I know, and imho it's lazy08:00
kulve[mbm]: but then you can't run any binaries. You can't test anything. And the testing it's reason of configure08:01
kulve[mbm]: hah08:01
[mbm]you're not running the damn binaries on the target platform08:01
[mbm]so it's somewhat pointless08:01
kulvego on, and try cross compiling the thousands of packages in debian..08:01
kulve[mbm]: it depends08:01
[mbm]kulve: just an fyi, - we cross compile tons of shit08:01
[mbm]and yes, we even do perl08:02
kulveif you are using qemu as cpu transp, you are emulating stuff. If you use sbrshd, then you are actually running those on the target hw08:02
kulveI'm off08:03
* [mbm] finds the whole configure scheme pretty ugly, have you ever actually read through a configure script? autogenerated mess08:04
kulvebut I'm not going to change all packages I need. There are just too many of them. That's why I use SB08:04
tkodisq, can't tell you that, but you're not the first one to notice that08:04
kulvenow I'm really off08:04
[mbm]kulve: and that's why you're lazy :)08:04
tkodisq, the resistance group is working on removing or minimizing that :)08:05
* [mbm] actually does patch the configure scripts08:05
tkotigert is the point man there :)08:05
disqi wonder if i could tell sapwood to right align the images08:05
disqright border is still 24px right now, i could reduce it to 8px but it looks messed up since they're rendered left to right08:06
disqmorning tigert :)08:07
tigertyea. i was thinking 12px or 808:07
tkodisq, oh, you'd also need to touch the bitmap to match the (minimum) dimensions08:07
tkoI haven't yet figure out how should one draw a 3x3 collection of bitmaps when the target area is smaller than any of the individual squares08:08
disqwell.. just changing ::borders worked for the left side. it just doesn't render the extra part (and it's supposed to strech, but doesn't, yeah)08:08
tigertluckily it is themeable, so i am trying to do a -layout- package and fix the plankton in a "fork" to find thee correct spacing.08:08
tigertbut this can luckily be done with only theme changes08:09
tigertso you can fix it by cropping the image as well08:10
disqi mean, if i can do it for the left side, it could also work for the right side. i'm not interested in providing new pngs and all that, just removing the gutters in maemopadplus :)08:10
tigertyeah. it would fix the thing for all apps.08:11
disqtigert: ''style "osso-window-background" { HildonWindow::borders = { 8, 24, 0, 24 } }'' works ok, doesn't stretch the left border but crops it08:11
tkoit's a bit involved how the drawing is done...08:11
tigertbut i am trying to fix this first in plankton. the area is there for legacy reasons, it was used in te os2006 themes more, but now its mostly white anyway, so i think it needs to go.08:12
tkodisq, what are the borders for the right side window graphics?08:12
tigertyea, the right side bitmap must be fixed too to make it work08:13
disqtko: qgn_plat_application_frame_right.png?08:13
tkodisq, can't recall, but sounds right and you seemed to be looking at the gtkrc already :)08:14
tkoI'm wondering why it is left-aligned as the painting logic should in theory allow right aligning08:14
*** obi has quit IRC08:14
tigertnow that we have the automated theme tool, we could sometime axe out the qgn_plat_ :)08:14
disqi was actively changing maemopadplus.rc via ssh and restarting maemopadplus on the device repeatedly, just about an hour ago08:14
*** osphy has joined #maemo08:15
tkoIIRC storing the image filenames is the biggest memory consumer in the theme engine :)08:15
tigerttko, the bitmap should be exact size anyway08:15
tkotigert, true, but given the amount of white it just might work if it were right aligned08:16
tigertheh, compressed names.. :) WNBGRGH~.PNG08:16
tkonaw.. 1.png, 2.png, ... :)08:17
disqwhy, since you now have the automated theme tool, just make them 2 character names. 00 thru ff would suffice :p08:17
tigertheh. hashof8chars.png :)08:17
disqand ditch that .png too maybe08:17
tkobarely :)08:17
tkohmm, using all the alphabet doesn't get you below two characters so not much saving..08:18
disq00 thru FF then? case sensitive :P08:19
tkoI was thinking 00..ZZ08:19
tkocase sensitive08:19
disqhmm.. yeah okay better08:19
tigertmaybe we are drifting here slightly? :)08:19

disqdo you know which wire is connected to the fmradio chip? ground?08:27
tigertinz xterm installs btstream vera and it rox0rz08:28
disqyeah it rox0rz my 770 already08:28
[mbm]disq: think it's using the headphone ground pin as the antenna08:28
disqi'll get a bare 3.5mm jack and solder a tiny wire there08:29
disqit's getting messy with the long headphone cord08:29
[mbm]what would be interesting is if the fmradio could give you a signal strength08:29
disqi wish the chip had rds but doesn't08:30
[mbm]hmm htat'd be fun08:30
tigerti wonder how wide freq band it has08:32
disqwhy don't they use dsp chips/software for this kind of things anyway? make it a dual dsp device, so what08:33
[mbm]at least 87.5-108 Mhz08:33
disq[mbm]: wow. that's really wide :P08:33
[mbm]well that's the fm spectrum08:34

tigertoops, wrong channel08:35
tigert(friend has a new eseries phone)08:35
[mbm]can the radio be recorded from the n800?08:36
[mbm]if so then you get to abuse it for some basic sampling of fm data08:36

[mbm]-EINVAL trying to read from /dev/radio009:12
konfooThe modules for the main video chips (bttv, saa7134...) have to be modified to load and use the RDS decoder module. This has only been done for bttv so far. With a bttv card that has a SAA6588, you can read raw RDS data via /dev/radio after loading the saa6588 kernel module. For the moment, saa6588 is not requested automatically by bttv, you have to modprobe it manually.09:12
disqwe know the chip doesn't support rds. so it's either still encoded in the audio (?) or stripped09:14
[mbm]ah, good point. no rds09:14
*** makuchaku has joined #maemo09:15

[mbm]ok, listening to radio is boring as hell.. what else could be done with the chip09:17
[mbm]if we could get signal strength we could use it to home in on low poer fm transmitters09:17

[mbm]my interest in the dsp input is not for recording crappy radio shows; I'm thinking one way data transmissions09:18

konfooThe TEA5761 FM radio and the TEA5764 FM radio plus radio-data-system (RDS) are offered as the smallest and most integrated such solutions for mobile phones. Occupying just 50 mm2 of pc-board area (one-third the footprint of previous parts), the TEA5761 requires only 14 external components while consuming just 11 mA.09:27
konfooRequiring only 22 external components, the TEA5764 covers a total area of only 70 mm2 and has a current consumption of 13 mA. Housed in WL-CSP packages, both devices feature a clock frequency of 32.768 kHz and an I2C interface.09:27

Jaffakeesj: downloading patches which are necessary for proper building is not good: no reliance on it always being there.

inz(wondered for a longish time yesterday, why my apt-get in scratchbox didn't work at school, while it worked well at home and at work)13:15
inz((tuned out, that the dns server had the same address at work and at home))13:15
disqhaving a static resolve.conf it works for me :p13:16
mgedmindnsmasq might be easier13:16
inzYeah, that should work too13:16
inzI think I need to setup some smtp proxy too13:16
inzSome stupidass networks block outgoing 2513:16
disqbtw inz, have i mentioned how much your new xterm toolbar rocks? thanks.13:16
inzdisq, not sure, but thanks anyway =)13:17
JaffasKaBoy: agreed, although I'm loathe to re-invent the whole of Debian for something which is supposed to be simpler ;-)13:17
mgedmingiven the number of wormy windows machines on the net, I think it's very neighbourly of ISPs to block outgoing port 2513:17
Jaffakeesj: err, if you have both? Not sure whether patch/$PACKAGE should be considered as patch/$PACKAGE.0 or patch/$PACKAGE.$MAXINT13:18
inzmgedmin, well, granted, it's not that bad practice, but it gets frustrating to change the outgoing smtp all the time13:18
disqi configured it as pgup/pgdn/home/end/tab/esc/enter (yeah, i'm a mc freak)13:18
mgedmininz: true13:18
Guardiankeesj: no gonna google for it13:18
mgedminfor roaming I use authenticated smtp over ssl to my work server13:18
keesjJaffa: also I don't know how to revert changes can you help me with that?13:18
mgedminport 465 is usually not blocked13:19
inzmgedmin, yeah, I guess I could make my smtp use ssl, currently it only does tls13:19

sKaBoyJaffa, well you can call dpatch directly :)13:19
mgedmininz: very true, the xterm keybar is the best thing ever13:19
dwdinz: Port 587 shouldn';t be blocked, and should be used for submission of new mail.13:19
mgedmininz: or perhaps I use tls over port 2525, I don't exactly remember :)13:19
inzmgedmin, =)13:20
mgedmin587 is something new to me13:20
dwdinz: Port 25 should be only for s2s, these days.13:20
mgedminI tried to read that rfc once, I think13:20
mgedminbut fell asleep13:20
mgedminso I don't know why13:20
* inz checks if his postfix listens on 587...13:21
dwdmgedmin: It's one of Randy Gellens's, his are usually pretty readable.13:21
mgedminI was tired :)13:21
dwdinz: Probably not by default. Want the config?13:21
mgedminnot right now, I should be working...13:21
JaffasKaBoy: good point13:22
dwdinz: Actually, if you've ommented out bits in /etc/postfix/ about submission, you could just turn those on.13:23

suihkulokkiinz: that's RFC 2476, and it's precisely the port/rfc for your use case13:24
dwdsuihkulokki: That's the old one, I think it's been updated since then.13:24
inzdwd, there seems to be commented out line there for submission...13:25

*** fab_ has joined #maemo14:11
JaffaYeah, I remember :)14:11
JaffaNever tried it, how useful is it?14:11
inzJaffa, not very ;)14:11
inzJaffa, as it naturally cannot generate the -dev packages...14:12
Veggenthe lack of source packages are a nuicance in itself, btw.14:13
VeggenPeople should be whacked. Thoroughly :)14:14
inzI don't understand why, for example, osso-clock and osso-clock-widget aren't open source14:14
parta proprietary clock sounds dumb14:15
Jaffainz: My guess is that anything Nokia wrote themselves entirely from scratch isn't open source; anything which modified an existing open source product (email, RSS, calculator) is OSS.14:15
JaffaAlthough it's somewhat ironic that the "osso" name is used on closed source components.14:16
partjaffa: what closed components use "osso"?14:16
inzJaffa, alarmd is entirely nokia and is oss ;)14:16
inzpart, osso-sketch, osso-notes...14:16
Jaffapart: osso-clock, as already mentioned.14:17
inzIf you do dpkg -l 'osso-*' you get quite a list of packages14:17
Jaffainz: ah, damnit - another fine theory ruined. What about entirely Nokia-produced *GUI* applications?14:17
inzout of maybe ~10 are open14:17
inzJaffa, that sounds more likely ;)14:18
inzGrr, the source for alarmd 0.4.2 is still not released14:18
partjaffa: ah, that's true. that's dumb too, but I guess "osso" doesn't equal open14:18
bergieguys, anybody know if the Maemo clock has any DBUS services? We could tell it to switch timezones (or set the "remote location") based on where the device is positioned in Plazes14:19
* Jaffa 's never seen a Plazes hotspot AFAIK, where's it prevalent?14:20
mgedmintoday my panel-clock stopped at 10:56 and showed that time for about 1.5 hours14:20
mgedminI was a bit late for work as a result :)14:20
bergieJaffa: any WiFi spot can be registered to Plazes14:20
Jaffabergie: ah, I see.14:20
bergieJaffa: Plazes is just a database of position info per access point MAC address14:20
inzbergie, it has gconf keys, and uses the standard /etc/localtime14:21
bergieinz: ok14:21
* bergie has to investigate that then14:21
inzbergie, and there's osso_time_set, which should be called after the timezone has been changed14:22
bergieinz: the big question is whether we want to actually switch timezone of the device, or just set the remote location14:28
inzbergie, setting the remote location does pretty much nothing afaik14:29
bergiemaybe we could ask user "According to Plazes your time zone has changed. Want to set system clock? Yes/No"14:29
bergieSince you don't change time zones that often that shouldn't become too annoying14:30
bergieand just doing it silently in background could be weird since user never really knows when and why it happens14:30
bergiejust like with cell phones... the automatic time zone update never appears to work correctly14:30
bergiePlazes returns a time zone, but if we use GeoClue and thus also support other means of positioning (like GPS), we could use the timezone web service from here to get it:
* Jaffa 's cell phone time update always seems to work well (around western Europe, at least)14:34
bergieJaffa: I've never had it work for some reason14:38

disq[mbm]: it helps when you're carrying it in your pocket, since it won't turn the screen on unless you hold the power key15:34

mgedminnokia internet tablets: cool hardware, mediocre software, customer support from hell17:07
mgedminat least the software keeps getting better17:07
jon1012anyway once all this is finished, I'll post an open-letter to nokia on my blog17:08
kkitomgedmin, cool hardware without drivers17:08
mgedmindrivers == software17:08
kkitothen it isnt so cool....17:08
mgedminthat's part of its mediocricity (sp?)17:08
thomasvsjon1012: posting open letters on blogs is not a correct way of informing a company of a problem17:10
thomasvsor, at least, don't call it "an open letter" :)17:10
jon1012thomasvs: when their customer support ell you "go to hell", it is17:10
thomasvsjon1012: not if you want to achieve something instead of just coming off all emo :)17:11
thomasvsjon1012: I assume you want someone at nokia to hear your complaint17:11
jon1012seriously, I am one of the associates of a computer hardware assembler and it consulting company, if we did that to a client we would be taken out of business in less than one year !17:11
*** fab_ has quit IRC17:12
nomisthomasvs: I really wish there were a channel where you could tell Nokia about stuff and they would take it seriously on a certain level. I'd like to discuss some hardware design descisions etc. and of course the maemo team here is not the proper partner for this.17:12
Tak|workhell, I wish every company had an irc channel cor customer interaction17:12
jon1012thomasvs: tell me one good way then17:12
Tak|workunfortunately, most companies can barely get CS people who speak coherently17:13
thomasvsjon1012: exactly, so find the right persion at nokia to send "a letter" to, a blog is a pull model not a push model17:13
jon1012at last my blog has more than 1k visit per day, so maybe they will hear me17:13

tzzI strongly disagree the Nokia ITOS software is mediocre.  It's extremely good as far as Linux UI goes.  It's miles ahead of the Newton, PalmOS, S60, or Windows Mobile, all of which I have used.17:23
*** Daelus has joined #maemo17:23
tzz(responding to mgedmin)17:23
Tak|workthere's at least one newton user who disagrees ;-)17:23
tzzoh, I know.  But, having used the Newton, I can tell you it wasn't quite the rhapsody it's made out to be by its fanboys.17:25
mgedmintzz: do you really believe that?17:25
tzzmgedmin: obviously, since I just said it.17:25
mgedminit's good because it is open (when it is), portable, full of features17:25
mgedminbut it is lightyears behind PalmOS in polish, usability and responsiveness17:25
Tak|workI've never used a newton or a palm for any substantial length of time17:26
mgedminI've used a palm (two palms) for 5 years17:26
mgedminI don't use it any more, because the 770 is much better17:26
*** noir has joined #maemo17:26
tzzmgedmin: responsiveness in a multitasking preemptive OS is not easy.  Considering all the N800 does vs. the essentially single-tasking PalmOS, I'm willing to live with a little less responsiveness.  I used PalmOS for about 4 years, Palm V and then a smart phone.17:26
mgedminI'm not saying it is easy17:27
mgedminand I am also willing to live with the responsivity I get17:27
tzzpolish: do you mean visual or functional?17:27
mgedminbecause features are more important to me17:27
mgedminpolish: probably both, but mostly visual17:27
mgedmine.g. lack of double-buffering that causes ugly rectangles to be drawn before a menu appears17:28
tzzI'd say visual polish is a manner of opinion.  Mine is that ITOS 2007 looks much better than any PalmOS I ever used.17:28
tzzfunctional polish is decent, I agree it could be better but other than keyboard and copy/paste I'm pretty happy with it.17:29
tzzusability is very difficult to quantify.  I'd like to see some usability studies instead of Newton and PalmOS comparisons.17:30
mgedminI concede that it looks better17:30
mgedminbut it does not feel better17:30
mgedminredrawing artifacts, sluggishness17:30
Tak| loves triangles!17:30
mgedminI've got nothing against triangles17:31
mgedminbut the menu scrolling method is plain silly17:31
mgedminand scrollbars are too narrow for my fingernails17:31
mgedminand the dividers, especially when they're right next to scrollbars17:31
Tak|workactually I can just scroll with my thumb on the n80017:31
Tak|workeven the narrowest scroolbars17:31
mgedminI also can, but I don't hit them always17:31
Tak|workthat's the thing I most hope for in 2007on77017:32
Tak|workthe improvements in thumbability17:32
tzzyeah, thumb sensitivity is not built into everything.  I hope that changes, it's a neat effect in the start menus for instance.17:32
tzzalthough the small arrows do annoy me17:32
mgedminone of the biggest annoyances is that I cannot change the volume/screen brightness when there's a info tip hanging17:33
mgedminsaying "loading web..." for example17:33
tzzanyhow, I was just trying to say ITOS 2007 is hardly mediocre.  Unpolished, yes.  But to me, it's better than the other handheld OSs out there.17:33
mgedminI haven't seen that many other handheld OSes17:34
mgedminbut my Palm never used to crash and reboot as often as my 77017:34
mgedminperhaps my standards are unreasonably high17:34
* Jaffa 's did17:34
mgedminUbuntu is good, IT OS 2007 is mediocre17:35
JaffaBut my Psion very *rarely* did.17:35
mgedminwell, I suppose if I gave my Ubuntu 64 megs of ram and a 250 mhz cpu, it would also seem to be mediocre17:35
mgedminif not outright unusable17:35

kkitohey i made a package that needs to copy some files to the mmc1, but it fails at install because the installer cannot set the chmod to the /media/mcc/dir because it is vfat. What must i to hack to solve it?17:52
Tak|workI agree - I don't see why it would be different on a bigger tablet than on the n80017:52

kenderJaffa, keesj does MUD work with svn ?19:31
keesjkender: in what way?19:32
kenderkeesj, they don't make "releases", so there is no tar.bz2 or nothing else, so you have to get the sources from the svn19:32
slomoMDK: just curious but why don't you take the debian mono package? should work fine with a few minor adjustments19:33
*** cybergypsy has joined #maemo19:33
*** skler has quit IRC19:34
Jaffakender: correct, you need to get mud from svn - and keep it regularly up-to-date at the moment. There is no plan for file releases at any point as it doesn't make sense within the aims of the project.19:36
kenderJaffa, no, that's no my question, hehe, sorry my english :(19:36
MDKslomo: frankly, I don't know19:37
kenderI'm porting an app (shell-fm), that the only way to get the sources is via svn19:37
Jaffakender: yes, there's a <fetch type="command"> where you can specify the comman dto get the sources, e.g. svn export.19:37
kenderthat was my question19:37

thomasvsMDK: why is it unfair ?20:36
tigertMDK: it's like Coke20:37
mgedminswindling usually is unfair20:38
tigertMDK: the legend says at one point they tried to sell it as syrup to restaurants with little success. then they got the idea of bottling it and selling it with 10x the price20:38
konfooand coke used to contain cocaine20:39
[mbm]they still sel coke as sryup, look at all the soda fountains20:39
c0ffeethat's why it's called coca cola20:39
mgedminIIRC the cocaine bit is an urban legend20:40
[mbm]mgedmin: pretty much20:40
*** bilboed has quit IRC20:40
konfooCoke had cocaine in it long ago; it is flavored with an extract20:41
konfoofrom the coca leaf (the plant from which cocaine is extracted).20:41
konfooBack a long time ago cocaine was being touted as "the new aspirin"20:41
konfooand was available from the corner drug store, just like aspirin.20:41
konfooThen people started getting addicted to it, it was made20:41
konfooillegal in the US, and Coke susbtiuted caffeine for the cocaine to20:41
konfoogive the drink a "lift" without the addiction...but the coca leaf20:41
konfooextract is still used in Coke as far as I know.20:41
[mbm]it used some of the same ingredients as cocaine but it's not like saying coke is bottled cocaine20:42
konfooeverything had coke in it at the turn of the century20:43
konfoo'tonics' were a big scam20:43
[mbm]heh, there was an interesting special on the history channel last week talking about coke/pepsi and they covered the whole new-coke thing20:43
konfooit all died when the FDA forced tonic manufacturers to list their ingredients on the bottles20:43
konfoowhich they did cause people were becoming addicts left right and center20:44
*** bedboi has quit IRC20:45
Disconnectkonfoo: you have several events mixed together. the addict problem was managed by making some drugs illegal (and some illegal without medical supervision - prescriptions..) the tonics mostly went out because the fda got oversight over claims of health/medicinal benefits and the ingredients labeling was a whole other issue entirely20:45
Disconnect"managed" i should say, but anyway..20:45
[mbm]tonics were whatever you could bottle and were often a mix of garbage and poisons20:46
* [mbm] wonders what was a bigger screwup, new coke or clear pepsi20:53
*** tolgam has quit IRC20:56
cesmannew coke20:56
Disconnecti kinda liked clear pepsi.20:56
Disconnectdidn't cry when it went away, but..20:56
[mbm]well, new coke sort of made sense; it was at a time when they were losing market share to pepsi because people liked the sweetness of pepsi better in a one sip taste test20:57
MDKthomasvs: it's unfair, because you're standing on the shoulders of giants, yet you pretend you created the value yourself20:59
MDKbesides, it's damaging the market20:59
MDKit's like packing ubuntu free cd's in a nice box & shrink-wrap, and selling at 400$21:00
* [mbm] finds it funny that converting back to coke classic caused an upswell of popularity that they wouldn't have had otherwise21:00
[mbm]leading some to believe the whole thing was a marketing scam21:00
[mbm]same can't be said about crystal pepsi21:00
thomasvsMDK: right, but anyone can do the same for 50$21:02
tzzmdk: this is called the "strawman" argument.  It's very easy to argue against a $400 package.21:02
tzzmdk: what do you think about $20 Ubuntu with support?21:02
MDKtzz: the strawman is on your side21:03

mgedmin"the rootfs license doesn't allow reselling"21:12
MDKthere is a difference between selling your device on ebay, and being a company that sells a product that's based on another product -- rebranding it on the ago21:13
MDKsimilarly, samsung can't sell nokia phones with extra software on it21:13
MDKbut I'm not a lawyer, the rootfs licensing needs to be sorted out anyways21:14

konfoomyren: not really.. one of my old colleagues is a hr manager there now i think21:47
garrettFatal: I pretty much have used garrett for years21:47
konfoothey are hiring, i noticed21:47
Fatalgarrett: must been the channel i'm pondering about then21:48
hubtigert: you know when I see how hard it is for Nokia to provide people in Canada with a way to use the discount, I'm thrilled to go work there. But that is just me. maybe I just need to find a reason21:48
keesjI will start my c/c++ based job next month , I am very very happy21:48
tigerthub: I am ashamed of the nokia store stuff21:48
tigertand how people handle the support stuff as well as the codes :(21:48
garrettFatal: was involved in way back in the day, been in #gimp and #gnome for many years, lots of other channels21:48
garretttigert: oh man, the store stuff still is giving me issues21:49
Fatalgarrett: mmm, it wasn't on those channels21:49
hubtigert: is down for 2 weeks now. that juste make things even more funny21:49
hubgarrett: at least you can order21:49
tigertFatal: garrett was always garrett21:49
hubgarrett: I'm uttely fucked21:49
tigertgarrett: you got the device though?21:49
garrettFatal: it could've been something else, but those are the most obvious ones I can think of21:49
garretthub: oh man21:49
keesjthis was my job
garretttigert: yeah, but they don't think I did sort of21:49
tigerthub: jimmac cannot order either, no shipping to .cz :(21:49
hubtigert: world globalization is clearly not for consumers21:50
Tak|workkeesj: doesn't look bad21:50
Fatalgarrett: was a wee bit more obscure, think a channel of friends only21:50
garrettcould be21:50
garrettI'm in a few of those, and have been in a few others in the past too21:50
tigerthub: yeah21:50
hubtigert: all in all, if I move back to Europe, it is back home21:50
garrettwas it with Trae, aka occy, aka OctobrX? (:21:50
tigerthub: you'd wonder how does it? :)21:50
keesjIt was fun , but I needed more "hard-core" programming21:50
hubtigert: not that I don't want to go to finland21:50
garrettok, then it is very, very possible then21:51
tigertI was thinking of Occy as well21:51
hubtigert: sell them21:51
tigerthub: with GSM!21:51
hubtigert: a coworker of mine got one before I got the discount21:51
garrettFatal: like or something, or hmm... what was a name of one of those channels from way back? d:21:51
Fatalgarrett: naaah, nothing to do with the activities of you guys iirc21:52
Fatalthen again, high fever atm, might be mistakenn21:52
garrettyeah, understand21:52
garretthope you get better soon21:52
*** behda1 has joined #maemo21:52
garrettI remember a nick that had something to do with "fatal", but it's really fuzzy too21:53
hubtigert: anyway, I'll wait until not long before the discount expire, and if at that time the issue is not solved, I'll give it away through a blog post21:53
garrettkinda at work, multitasking toward a deadline d:21:53
Fatalheck, i bet it could even been named #occy or so, since the letter o popped into my head, but seems unlikely trae would have a channel named after himself, right?21:53

maddlerany clue on where to download scumm games? :)22:29
nomismaddler: when you're lucky you can get a collection of old lucasfilm games quite cheap.22:30
nomisI bought a big collection like 4 years ago for about 10 EUR or somethign.22:31
garrettmaddler: there are some free ones on scummvm's website22:31
Tak|workI still have my old copy of sam&max somewhere22:32
garrettiirc, scummvm has some sierra support now too22:32
garrettbut not (yet) in the n800, I believe22:33

mgedminrandom thought: the 770 has the best user experience for configuring bluetooth dialup of any linux distro I've seen22:37
hubmgedmin: because it is not a linux distro22:38
tigertmgedmin: I think it takes someone to look throuhg the use cases and design it22:38
tigertand then someone to do it22:38
Tak|workaw, the linux port uses opengl :-(22:38
tigertor, those two doing it together22:38
glas5tak: is it complete yet?22:38
SulisTak|work: what's wrong with using opengl?22:39
glas5speaking of which, is exult ported to maemo?22:39
mgedminwho else finds the wifi disconnect confimation dialog annoying?22:39
mgedminif I didn't mean it, I wouldn't have chosen disconnect from the menu, would I?22:39
Tak|work1) it's unnecessary in this case   2) that means little/no chance of it running on an IT22:39
glas5sulis: the original uu style engine would work faster on 77022:39

garrettthe notifications are annoying sometimes, and one has to wait, cannot dismiss them22:42
glas5exult(ultima 7 engine) should be quite easy to port22:42
garrettthey're useful too sometimes though22:42
konfooi always preferred the isometric and 2d ultima games22:43
tigertgarrett: yea, they appear over the thumb keyboard close button for example22:43
garrettheh fun22:43
Tak|workwould be nice to be able to dismiss the notifications with a tap22:43
garrettthat would be nice at least22:44
Tak|workor maybe a double-tap to reduce accidents22:44
garrettthe loading one, if one dismissed that, may be strange, as the thing isn't necessarily done loading22:45
garrettbut there could be some other notification of loading somewhere else22:45
tigertTak|work: tripletap followed by a double tap!!22:45
garrettplus, load times should be worked on anyway22:45
garretttigert: haha22:45
Tak|workhah, now you're reminding me of gaim22:45
mgedmin+1 for dismissing notifications with a tap22:45
garretttigert: then a tap-slide-tap-tap22:45
Tak|workthere used to be easter eggs if you would, like ctrl+double-middle-click on something22:45
mgedmingarrett: tap out "dismiss" in morse code22:46
tigertanyway, the blog and such will be interesting22:46
garrettTak: there is an easter egg in Red Hat Linux 8 and 9 kinda sorta like that22:46
Tak|workhmm - exult already runs on zaurus22:46
garrettmgedmin: yes!22:46
konfooanyone want to buy a zaurus? :)22:46
konfoo(speaking of)22:47
Tak|workthe "loading" one should be one of those dialogs with a progress bar / bouncing bar anyway, if the loading time is >1s22:48
mgedminprogress bar would be useful, if the time remaining can be estimated22:49
mgedminI do not see an advantage of a bouncing bar over the current throbber22:49
mgedminthe boot progress bar is nice22:49
Tak|workwell - I meant current bouncing bar, like when you change the bg image (iirc)22:50
garrettOH MAN22:50
Tak|workyeah @ boot/flash progress bar22:50
garrettchanging the background image SUCKS22:50
garrettit changes it and then the progress keeps going for another minute or two22:50
Tak|workyeah - why exactly does it take 60s to load an image?22:50
garrettand then you just stare at the cylon eye progress22:50
Tak|workparticularly when the image is actually loaded in the first 5s?22:50
mgedminiirc it's more than just loading, the system composes the status bar etc on top and compresses the result as a png22:50
garrettmgedmin: yes, but it finishes that in a couple seconds22:51
mgedminwhat does it do the rest of the time then?22:51
garrettplays 8,000 games of tic-tac-toe with itself?22:51

[mbm]hmm is it just me or does dropbear not start immediately after boot? seems like it doesn't start until I launch an xterm22:59
inz[mbm], check /etc/rc2.d/S??dropbear22:59
inz[mbm], it may very well be started after desktop (af-base-apps)23:00
[mbm]inz: all the init.d stuff looks fine; was the first thing I checked23:01
*** mgedmin has quit IRC23:02
kulvedropbear might suffer from too low entropy23:08
kulveI took a night in our very idle monahas board for dropbear to get enough random numbers to start up.. :)23:08
[mbm]I just get connections refused and then I fire up xterm to see what the problem is and the second xterm starts dropbear works23:08
kulveI've noticed too, that it starts(?) slowly..23:09
Tak|workdoes dropbear have any compelling advantage over openssh?23:09
kulvefewer dependencies23:09
kulveon n800, no real differencies..23:10
[mbm]openssh is huge, although the n800 has more than enough space23:10
[mbm]dropbear gets used on routers with 2 and 4M of flash where every byte counts23:10
[mbm]and imho works just as well as openssh23:10
inz[mbm], maybe starting xterm creates 'nuff entropy for dropbear ;)23:11
