neostriderhello folks!00:34
neostriderim getting a "operation failed" when installing stuff00:34
neostriderwhats happening?00:34
* Pupnik pictures bush standing on an aircraft carrier00:38
Pupnikneostrider: there is an installer log that shows you details00:39
kpelKevinVerma: 3g does allow multirab (i.e. voice + packet) concurrent calls00:39
kpelKevinVerma: which 3g phone haev you used that doesn't allow you to do both?00:40
neostridertoo late..reflashed ;-)00:40
MDKKevinVerma: we have serial port accessory that we internally use to develop00:40
MDKI wish we were selling it00:40
MDKit really helps00:41
kpel<osfameron> even in uk and italy data connections pause during voice call00:42
kpelnot true00:42 device is stuck into the green bar ,but the flasher reports success00:42
neostriderwhat to do?00:42
neostriderwell...flashing again...00:43
osfameronkpel: orange uk, italy tim, both on nokia 663000:43
osfameronother datapoints welcome, obviously00:44
kpelosfameron: that's very interesting. so you have your ps call going, and you start a voice call and your ps call drops?00:44
neostriderwoa...worked...but quite buggy00:45
Pupnikhmm, i found a gtk mp3 cutter00:46
kpelosfameron: there nothing in the 3gpp specifications that justifies such a behaviour.00:46
Pupnikmight be nice for trimming downloaded streams on the tablet00:46
osfameronkpel: yeah, that's wat happens00:47
osfameronabout  3 secs  into  voice call phone  beeps, and i get message data call paused or similar00:48
kpelosfameron: i strongly suggest you complain to your telco then. this shouldn't happen.00:48
*** konttori_ has quit IRC00:48
osfameronbeep and resumed message after00:48
kpelosfameron: and that happens in an area with good 3g reception, right?00:49
osfameronkpel: 2 telcos00:49
osfameronmight be the 6630's fault, dunno00:49
kpelosfameron: then it's worth the trouble to go to a nokia shop and ask for a software upgrade or a replacement00:50
osfameronkpel: er, i guess, yeah, good signal mainly00:50
osfameronok, i didn't realise it was  a bug00:50
*** neostrider has quit IRC00:50
*** konttori has joined #maemo00:50
kpelosfameron: just did a couple of tests on my N9501:00
kpelosfameron: if a voice call is established first then the ps call goes through fine. if a ps call is started (e.g. web site loading) then a voice call cannot be started01:01
KevinVermakpel, thanks for clearing up abt 3g, i've used that with a pcmcia device, gprs on cellphone sofar01:01
kpeli suspect this is a network policy01:01
kpelneed to do some more tests though, very interesting stuf01:01
kpelKevinVerma: np01:01
KevinVermabut multiple chargers, batteries or  say simply carry too many devicies is waste and looks cyber punk01:02
KevinVermamdk, i know you got serial ports, i know some developers outside your gang hass those for n800  too01:03
kpelosfameron: the irony is that mobile phone and network infrastucture manufacturers test their products against each other to ensure that multirab works without problems :)01:03
KevinVermathey wanted me to get started on my own fun for testing their work too01:03
kpelMDK: you work for nokia?01:03
*** pdz- has joined #maemo01:04
KevinVermabut i gave up, i don't want to carry around a n800 with a serial port soildered on!01:04
MDKkpel: yes01:04
KevinVermayou guys could have been a bit open for ideas or feedback in first place01:05
KevinVermai worry i will have to scrap this device in future and reinvest 400usd01:06

PupnikKevinVerma: what is it about maemo that you have problems with?01:10
KevinVermaPupnik, lots of :)01:13
Pupnikwhat are you using it for?01:14
KevinVermaonscreen keyboard in xchat won't do tabs for auto-complete ;p01:14
KevinVermaunless i use stylus01:15
kpelwhat's wrong with the stylus?01:15
*** pdz has quit IRC01:16
KevinVermathere is a limit  can't use it all the time01:16
kpeli played a bit with a friend's N800 and after a few minutes i got used to the stylus. too bad i had to return it to him:)01:16
Pupnikget a bt keyboard01:16
KevinVermaif stylus is so recommend then i should irc from palm01:17
kpela bt keyboard is a really good alternative because it works with so many gadgets01:17
KevinVermalarge onscreen keyboard is one great inovation , i agree to the fact01:17
kpelthere is one that i saw someone usng with his N9501:17
KevinVermabt keyboard is another 50usd01:18
KevinVermawhy do i want to be dork with too many devices ?01:18
KevinVermawhy not carry a viao ?01:18
Pupniki don't see a tab in the large onscreen keyboard01:19
KevinVermathat's the point01:19
Pupnikif they put more buttons on there, the keys would be too small for fingers01:20
kpelin my view, the tablet was designed as a multimedia platform, not for irc. that's why they don't sell it with a qwerty keyboard attached :)01:20
Pupnikhas anyone made alternate layouts for onscreen keyboards?01:20
kpelthe fact that people can add packages is an added bonus, but i don't see why a whole platform must change because of xchat01:21
KevinVermaactually, for auto-complete keyboard can  scan and load data, and offer as a auto-complete choice to complete with d-pad01:21
KevinVermaexample in xchat load user lista01:22
*** k-s has quit IRC01:22
KevinVermain bash term read list of path or files in pwd01:22
kpelso there is autocompletion for xchat in maemo after all?01:23
Pupnikit can?01:23
Takonly in the stylus kb01:23
Pupnikthat's great!01:24
Takat least until nicks get picked up by the builtin autocompletion01:24
Tak(the word completion)01:24
KevinVermawell make sure you are warned i am not even  a plumber01:24
KevinVermaif the idea loiks any cool pls code it01:25
KevinVermadon't expect me01:25
derfPupnik: I have, but I am not using the stock input method.01:26

*** KevinVerma is now known as KevinVerma|zzZ01:48
kpeldo you guys know of any application that can synchronize a linux system with an N-series phone?01:53
kpeltried gnokii but doesn't support N-series for now01:53
kpeldoes maemo have some syncing application?01:53
* Pupnik dunnos01:56
Pupnikit'd be nice if garage had screenshots on the project pages01:56
kpelanother, more fundamental, question: is there an open standard format for storing contact and calendar information?01:57
Pupnikgood questino01:57
littlefaeThere are... some formats in common useage..01:58
littlefaeNot sure about open though01:58
littlefaevcs and ics seem to be the common two01:58
littlefaevcs is accepted by many makes of phone, sadly ics calendars are not01:59
Pupnikcool, someone who knows about this stuff01:59
littlefaeOnly partly. :)02:00
Pupnik  <- maybe a framework for exchange that we could use?02:00
littlefaeI know that GPE calendar accepts both formats, and all the cellphones I've ever used allowed me to transfer vcs files, which is handy since Entourage and Address book (on the mac) exports them02:01
Pupnikis there anything on the nokia that can do this?02:01
kpelright, thanks02:01
littlefaeICS I think was made by Apple for their calendar system, though I may be mistaken and they may, actually, have used an open format (yeah right).02:01
littlefaeOn the 770, GPE calendar supports ICS files02:01
littlefaeAt least, it claims to in its info02:02
kpeli think that nokia uses cvs as well. don't know about the calendar02:02
Pupnikah... this app looks well designed02:02
kpelofcourse the secret here is that... it doesn't matter02:02
littlefaeHey, its my old handheld! :D02:02
littlefaeGod I miss Qtopia....02:03
kpelif, let's say, thunderbird gets calendar support and picks format A then immeditely format A will gain a huge user base02:03
littlefaeICS works in Mozilla software. :)02:03
kpeli'm a bit confused here02:03
kpelthere is already calendar software made by the mozilla project?02:04
kpeldo they expect a royal invitation to integrate everything into a nice useful package?02:04
littlefaeI do my research. :)02:04
*** kkpaul has joined #maemo02:05
kpeli don't doubt that02:05
littlefaeHey, I've had the same questions as most of you, which contact app to use, which calendar app, etc etc. :)02:06
littlefaeAdmittedly, I stuck with nasty proprietary stuff, but its infinitely more stable than Mozilla, m'fraid02:07
kpeli don't doubt that either02:08
littlefaeIf you want integration with Thunderbird, btw, I recommend getting the Lightning extension02:08
kpellittlefae: thanks. will that add calendar support or just an interface for sunbird?02:09
littlefaeIts a full calendar that integrates into Thunderbird, much like other extensions. :)02:09
littlefaeI believe, if you later add Sunbird it will share data files though02:09
kpelthunderbird, sunbird, firefox02:09
kpelthese names make you think that some cult of crazy druids are behind the mozilla project02:10
littlefaeFor those interested, here's the spec on the ICS cal format:
kpeloh, it's an rfc. then i suppose it's pretty open02:10
*** Pupnik_ has joined #maemo02:11
kpeli even have the rfc on my pc but totally forgot about it... perfect02:11
littlefaeI like to help where I can. :)02:11
Takalso the Lightning extension for Thunderbird02:14
littlefaeYep, mentioned that. :)02:14
Takkpel: "once useful package" would be seamonkey or iceape02:14
littlefaeIs seamonkey including the calendar app now, then? :)02:14
Takit used to when it was "the mozilla suite"02:15
littlefaeThese people have weird naming conventions. :)02:15
kpelit's a nice way to confuse people02:17
littlefaeMakes 'perfect' sense.. Firefox, Thunderbird, Sunbird, Lightning SeaMonkey..  I'm just waiting for EarthLion...02:18
kpelseamonkey is a web browser afaik02:18
littlefaeIt's a full suite, just what the doctor didn't order. :)02:19
kpeli'd rather have somethign for email+calendar and a separate, lightweight browser02:19
littlefaeSame here02:19
Takseamonkey is what they renamed the old mozilla suite, which was browser, mail, news, html editor, etc., all in one02:19
Pupnik_integrating that stuff into browser makes no sense to me02:20
kpelhaving the calendar in a separate app seems a bit of an overkill02:20
littlefaeBut, if they took all their seperate products and bundled them, with tight integration, that permitted use of the component programs without running the whole damn suite, I'd probably switch to it02:20
kpelold mozilla was horrible. too big, too slow.02:20
Pupnik_kpel, what if you don't like the browser's calendar/mail implementation?02:20
Pupnik_there is no reason to bind two seperate functions into one program02:20
kpelPupnik: that's why i asked about standards :)02:20
Taklittlefae, you mean like firefox+thunderbird?02:21
kpelwell, microsoft did it with outlook and it's quite good02:21
littlefaeI meant.. I dunno, like Microsoft Office..  Distribute it as a suite, but composed of seperate apps. :)02:21
kpelperhaps the only good thing microsoft ever did02:21
littlefaeMicrosoft did a better mail client btw. ;-)02:21
kpelthere is a mozilla project that coordinates firefox, thunderbird, crapdog, etc02:22
Takmeh, outlook is horrible if you're not accustomed to its brokenness02:22
*** Pupnik has quit IRC02:22
littlefaeThe Mac Office suite includes it, its called Entourage, and its slicker than a sheet of ice. :)02:22
kpelso let them integrate calendar in thunderbird and then make firefox play along with thunderbird02:22
littlefaeMy only grip with it, is the project manager in it.. :(02:23
Takkpel, that's already done02:23
kpelTak: define brokenness02:23
Takkpel, no thread support?02:23
kpelTak: thunderbird doesn't have out-of-the-box calendar support afaik02:23
kpelTak: and that stops you from doing... what?02:24
littlefaekpel: Mozilla's philosphy is like the Linux one.  Give them just enough rope to work with, and let them get more rope for other tasks02:24
kpelrope is dangerous. one might hang imself by accident02:24
littlefaeI was going to say hang themselves with it, but despite my dislike of mozilla apps, they have a good philosphy for the most part02:24
Takno builtin junkfilter?02:25
Takautomatically loading/executing everything from everyone02:25
littlefaeOh that junkfilter in Thunderbird is so useless...02:25
kpelTak: the automatic thing is stupid, i agree. but if you disable the preview pane yo can work around that02:26
TakI don't have any problem with it02:26
* littlefae hugs Entourage's filters.02:26
kpeland yes, the junk filter tin tbird isn't doing much02:26
littlefaeTakes a while, too long if you ask me, but meh02:26
kpelthe brilliant thing is that you can have all your emails, appointments, contacts in one place02:27
littlefaeThey need an Adblock++ stylled extension built in to it, for mail02:27
kpeland you get reminders as well02:27
Taksame with tbird02:27
littlefaeSpeaking of calendar apps, is there actually a non-crashy one for Maemo yet?02:29
Takmy fiancée's been using gpe-cal for ages now02:29
littlefaeThe GPE calendar I mentioned earlier breaks my handheld a lot..  And its built in home-screen plugin resets my device on startup02:30
kpelcan't find sunbird in found a "Nokia Synchronization"extension though02:30
littlefaeBlanks the screen, and the GUI elements end up white for a period of about 90 seconds, then causes apps to stop loading properly til you rest02:30
Takwow - how do you know it's gpe-cal?02:31
littlefaeNothing else ever did it before, and after removal, its not happened since.02:31
littlefaeMakes it a good suspect, at least02:32
littlefaeThe plugin definitely causes issues though02:32
Takweird - yeah, we're not using the plugin02:32
littlefaeI seriously recommend never activating that plugin..02:33
littlefaeIt's like Nokia cyanide02:33
TakI'm a big fan of tbird+lightning - I used them to escape outlook in my exchange-only environment02:34
Takhas anybody put in a feature request for thumbable app menus?02:36
littlefaeSunbird is a good app, and the only one to get the full thumbs-up from me.  The browsers all seem to break when I use them, and the mail client seemed... unfinished, every time I used it..02:36
littlefaeThumbs?!.... on my Nokia?.... Eeesh02:36
littlefaeNasty, dirty things..02:36
* Tak thumb-typing atm02:36
littlefaeI wouldn't mind a decent, cheap, BT keyboard for the 770.. But, since there is none with a suitable holster, I'm at a loss02:37
TakI like not having to carry anything02:38
littlefaeI wouldn't mind having a handwriting recognition panel that actually worked, as an alternative, but there isn't one..02:38
kpeltoo expensive02:39
littlefaeMaybe, but when the Apple Newton trumps the 770 for its engine, you know its bad02:39
Takare you using tf with the stylus kb then?02:39
kpelpattern recognition is only part of the challenge. the low processing power and the battery life are other parts02:39
littlefaeI'd love to, but I lost tf. :'(02:39
littlefaeGod I miss it so..02:40
Taklol - you lost the email too?02:40
*** |tbb| has joined #maemo02:40
littlefaeI archived...02:40
littlefaeMy archive.rge file is missing though... I think I archived the archive..02:40
kpelwhat was that about apple newton?02:40
littlefaeI used to own one, and despite its lousy handwriting recognition engine, it always got what I wrote in, about 95% of the time.  Best of all, were the inbuilt gestures too, and the ability to write anywhere02:41
littlefaeThat beats the 770, incidentally, which gets what I write in, about 5%% of the time02:42
kpeland the n800 recognition doesn't work?02:42
littlefaeI use the pickboard mostly02:42
littlefaeI dunno, I have a 770. :p02:42
kpelseemed to work ok for me, and i don't have such a good handwriting02:42
kpelTak: you said that the lightning extension is exchange compatible?02:43
*** kkpaul has quit IRC02:43
Takit's also in mistral extras02:44
Takkpel, it doesn't upload to exchange (e.g. shared calendars on server), but that's all it doesn't do02:46
littlefaeAhhh, just found my next laptop... :)02:47
kpelTak: thanks02:47
kpellittlefae: $2000 ?02:49
littlefaeI don't care.. :)  I don't like big things much. :)02:49
kpelyou can have a N95 + bt keyboard of the same size for less02:49

littlefaeThe internet: A wonderful resource03:40
littlefaeI've been viewing google videos, and discovered that I am legally entitled to what calculates, presently, at around £700 cash.03:40
Pupniki was just offered £800,000 in an email03:42
littlefaeYeah, but thats not serious... The video really was. :)03:42
Pupnikhow does it work03:43
littlefaeApparently some UK legislation ruled in favour of customers over the bank charging system.. I know I've had £700 in charges since opening my bank... So, I'm working on the documents.. :)03:43
littlefaeI can claim back up to 6 years of charges. :D03:43

TimRikeranother issue... I tried upgrading the firmware on another n800 using flasher-3.0.static on debian unstable x86 running 2.6.20 debian kernel.03:49
TimRikerthe flasher see's the usb device change (as watched through strace) but does not show that it finds a n800 to upgrade.03:49
neostriderlittlefae: yeah, but where?03:49
TimRikeris this a know issue on the new kernels? How should I update firmware from Linux?03:49
TimRikerusbfs is mounted on /prov/bus/usb and I also tried with the flasher patch to use /dev (which also exists) and get the same results (other than the path info shown in strace)03:51
littlefaeOne would assume that if you type in: that it would bring up some http document, since the app manager uses it, but since I've never tried to manually grab such a thing I wouldn't know03:51
littlefaeOkay, so I'm wrong.. :p03:53
neostrideractually, its the repo03:53
neostriderbut Im not familiar to where could it be03:53
littlefaeI assume you're after the 'armel' package?03:54

rasgodHi, do anyone in here knows, which port I have to switch on, to cure a WSOD on an 770?10:59
rasgodI am back :)11:01
rasgodyes Pupnik, on maemo I read that I *could*fix the wsod I have on my Nokia 770 with some port, the ports next to the battery, you have to activate them with a could flash(the serial port console)11:03
rasgodIf you look at the backside of the Nokia 770 where the battery is, are there some yellow pins (11pins are there)11:06
Pupnikcan't you just flash the device?11:07
rasgodThat I tryed Pupnik, but the Wsod was after the flash still there11:08
rasgodSOme friend of mine in a nokia shop flashed it to but now I got some *strange* message when I want to re flash it for a could flash, it tells me the: "USB device found at bus 001, device address 005 Unsupported board (id= 0x000)"11:09
Pupniki wish i could help11:09

Okkomolkko: no, they are not. many pc computers have initrd as well.20:46
kpelmolkko: as the man page initrd(4) says, it is just an image with modules. the kernel mounts that image first, then loads the modules stored in it in order to proceed with the boot process20:46
*** KevinVerma has joined #Maemo20:46
Okkomolkko: they usually contain device drivers so that the system is able to use the rest of the devices to boot up properly.20:47
kpelpersonally i find this initrd thing weird. i used to be a hardcore slackware user before switching to xubuntu. dunno why one cannot compile the necessary drivers into the kernel. the average pc has more than enough memory.20:47
Okkokpel: now I'm guessing, but it may be that at that time the system is unable to use all of the memory or access the whole disk20:48
kpeldon't know about the memory but the disk thing might be a reason20:49
