setiteplease soemoen help me03:56
setitei beg of you03:56
setiteim no good in linux03:56
setitei cant get RD mode enabled on ym n80003:56
gomiaminstall becomeroot03:59
gomiam(which may require entering red pill mode)03:59
gomiamsee on how to activate red pill mode04:00
gomiamwhile you are installing becomeroot, you may want to install osso-xterm too so you can have a console04:01
gomiamanyway, what do you want RD mode for, setite?04:01
milhousexterm is the only reason to install becomeroot/R&D mode... no?04:01
milhouseor i suppose ssh04:02
gomiammilhouse: I don't know. Cause and effect are such vague concepts ;-)04:02
_Monkeybecomeroot is is easily obtained from [770/OS2006] or [770/OS2007HE and N800/OS2007] or for a more long winded method
gomiamI'll get back to cataloging galaxies.04:02
milhouseshouldn't need red pill mode to install becomeroot04:02
milhousegomiam: slacker04:03
gomiamoh. Figures I wouldn't think about installing becomeroot directly. Must be I'm a CLI man :-)04:03
gomiammilhouse: join Galaxy Zoo04:03
gomiama useful way to lose your time :-D04:04
milhouseall my 770/n800 devices have been in R&D mode since the day i bought them... what's becomeroot? ;)04:04
gomiamI won't be baited like that :-P04:05
gomiamon a tangent, why does "being baited" mean "to have a bait put in front of oneself" when it should mean "to be used as bait"? :-D04:06
milhouseit means someone is trying to attract you... with bait04:07
milhouseso i think it's correct04:07
setiteok the guys in #ubuntu helped me04:08
setitei had no rights to use the flasher04:08
milhouseyou mean you cheated on us?04:08
gomiamoh, the despair04:08
setitesorry... i figured it was an ubuntu problem since that OS doesnt like me04:09
gomiamall our responses will be lost... in time... like cheers... in the crowd (or something like that) :-D04:09
setiteok x terminal runs...04:09
setitenow why did i want RD mode anyway04:09
setiteit just made my startup unpretty04:09
setitemakes me feel all leet now04:09
milhouseyou always need root for flasher :)04:09
setitecan i run all my hacker tools now04:10
milhousecan't beat the green text04:10
milhousesetite: um... eh?04:10
milhousesetite: now that you have root access you can do pretty much anything04:10
gomiamhacker... as in aircrack? :-D04:10
setiteshit did i say hacker.. haha my bad.. i was getting a phonecall04:11
gomiam(on unrelated matters, it's been a few days since aircrack-ng on Maemo evolved to 0.9.1, so I finally can Rumpeltinskin my way through Telefónica's stupid WEP key scheme)04:11
setiteyea aircrack.. tcpdump.. wireless-tools... nmap04:12
setitethe fun shit04:12
gomiamyes, you can04:12
*** adoyle_ has joined #maemo04:12
gomiamso very useful04:12
setitewell i mean i have them installed.. btu cant see them04:12
setitecli apps right04:12
setiteoh nmap runs now...04:12
setitei dont think it ran before04:12
gomiamit probably ran before, but it threw its results where you couldn't see.04:13
setitethis is possible too04:13
setiteok so am i like in full linux goodness now04:14
setitedo i need redpill04:14
gomiamI must go to sleep _now_. I'm starting to draw on quantum physics quotes.04:14
setitewhat i need is a fucking physics04:14
gomiamsetite: you probably don't but I quite like it.04:14
gomiamthen again, I've been apt-getting my way through everything lately04:14
setiteyea i need a keyboard04:14
gomiamdon't buy Zaapa ZA-60004:15
setitehunt and pecking sucks.. and the handwriting is a joke04:15
setitebut im not a true PDA guy so maybe thats why04:15
gomiamit only allows SPP04:15
setitei was thinking stoway04:15
setitei just need a cheap bt keyboard04:15
gomiamsetite: and simple support to get it running04:15
* gomiam is checking whether stowaway supports HID04:16
gomiamit looks like it does04:16
milhousestowaways are fine, support HID. my sierra works no problem.04:16
setitewhats cheapest that works04:17
setiteand do you use a fullsize or something small like stowaway04:17
gomiamI was shooting for a kbd I saw on eBay, but I was offline at the critical time04:18
gomiamfunnily, nobody even tried to get it.04:18
setiteyea thats what happened to me04:19
setitei was watching it for 4 horus.. and spaced it in the last hour04:19
gomiamwhich reminds me I'm to try and buy a couple of USB Wifi cards with SMA antenna connection04:19
setiteand on another one i bid within 30 secs of close04:19
gomiam(at last there are cards like that)04:19
setiteand got swooped by a pro within 5 secs04:19
gomiamthat's gotta hurt04:19
setitewell that was on a n800 actually :)04:20
setitethe keyboard was the 4 hour space04:20
setitei was trying to get one for under 35004:20
setitefinally gave up and bought it at a retailer04:20
setitei should have picked a better retailer04:20
setitecompusa extended warranties are costly04:20
gomiam350? What currency?04:20
setiteebay they go for around 350 give or take with shipping04:20
gomiamoh, you mean $350 for the N80004:21
*** Chili has joined #maemo04:21
setitei think im gonna keep the ubuntu VM04:21
setiteso i can relearn it04:21
setiteit will help me in learning my n800 as well04:21
setiteyou know what we need04:22
setitean overclocking app :)04:22
gomiamsay, what would you think of a USB WiFi with external SMA antenna for EUR30,10 (taxes included)?04:23
* nchntr pats himself on the back04:26
nchntri got my 770 booting from flash or mmc04:27

erstaziI got scratchbox setup, I got the user and all05:21
pupniknice N80005:21
erstazibut I cannot get pass this:
pupnikerstazi: you're in luck, i have a 2.2 working here and N800 has a working 3.005:22
pupnikthe login?05:22
pupnikwhat is your host os, and what is the error you see after login command05:23
*** adoyle_ has quit IRC05:23
erstaziif I am as normal user in terminal on the pc, it says I don't have permissions, then if I go as root, it says I don't have permissions05:23
N800erstazi, what distro?05:23
erstazilet me make sure thats exact05:23
erstaziUbuntu 7.0405:23
N800install via the debs05:23
N800you cannot go wrong05:24
pupnikyeah that's how i did it - with the debs - but maybe we can fix the error first05:24
N800follow those instructions.05:24
oraklehave any of you had luck with using WEP and PEAP on the nokia 770?05:24
orakleMy university's wireless runs that and so far I haven't been able to connect05:24
erstazimain@main:/$ /usr/bin/scratchbox05:24

erstaziok I got that05:26
erstazistupid question05:26
pupnikand your normal user needs to be in sbox group i think05:26
erstaziit is05:26
erstaziI can't believe I forgot all about that being the root group05:26
erstaziI thought being a deb it would set it up05:26
pupnikorakle: dunno05:26
oraklethere seems to be some support for it in linux under wpa_supplicant05:27
oraklebut i haven't been able to find a binary package of it for the 77005:27
erstaziI thought WEP could be cracked05:28
pupnikerstazi: if you get this error let me know Inconsistency detected by rtld.c: 1192: dl_main: Assertion `(void *) ph->p_vaddr == _rtld_local._dl_sysinfo_dso' failed!05:28
erstaziisn't WPA more secure?05:28
erstazipupnik, do you get that error?05:28
erstaziI will have to keep a lookout for that05:28
orakleerstazi, it is, but i'm stuck with what my university is using05:28
oraklethey probably use wep for compatibility with dated wifi gear05:28
N800erstazi, wpa aes05:28

pupnikIf you boot a kernel without VDSO support and attempt to login to the Scratchbox environment you will recieve the following error.05:29

erstazipupnik, how do I know if VDSO is enabled?05:37
pupnikif you don't get the error on login you are ok05:38
erstaziI keep getting a permissions issue05:40
erstazithis time about needing to log out and log back in to be set for the sbox group05:40
pupnikyeah that one was strange05:42

oraklebldewolf i know :)05:51
oraklewhat's in the way of it working though?05:51
oraklethat is to say, if i get scratchbox up and running and compile wpa_supplicant with the 770 as a target, would it work?05:52
*** pupnik_ has joined #maemo05:53
bldewolfno idea05:56
bldewolfI was going to try doing that myself, in a similar situation05:56
erstaziwb pupnik_05:56
bldewolfeither wpa_supplicant or xsupplicant05:56
bldewolfat my work we support WEP/WPA with EAP, but my 770 still doesn't work because our AP's advertise WEP with EAP instead of WPA...05:57
erstaziERROR: '/scratchbox/sbin/chroot-uid' is not suid ROOT.05:57

oraklesomeone needs to make a fully setup scratchbox in a vmware image06:04
oraklethat would be awesome.06:04
erstaziyes, orakle, I was just thinking that06:05
erstaziscary that you thought that, really is06:05
*** pupnik has quit IRC06:05
erstaziI am checking the past channel logs06:05
oraklei've got debian 4 installed in vm now.. apt-getting all the packages06:05
pupnik_there is one06:05
orakleoh really06:05
erstaziorakle, don't move the vmware files on your computer06:05
* erstazi slaps himself upon pupnik_'s statement06:06
erstaziwhere at?06:06
oraklethat would save some time :D06:06
pupnik_i can google if you have trouble06:06
erstaziI can google also06:06
bldewolforakle, wpa_supplicant wants "debhelper (>= 5.0.0) libreadline5-dev libqt4-dev" which aren't available06:06
erstazi   ??06:07
bldewolfI'm betting I could get away without the qt dependencies...maybe the readline...but what does debhelper do?06:07
oraklelooks like a nice torrent is available:
erstaziI thought debhelper was available06:07
oraklebeat me to it06:08
erstaziorakle, dude, are we twins?06:08
pupnik_it helps build packages - you can try forcing the debhelper compatibility to 406:08
erstazireally is06:08
pupnik_you can edit debian/compat and change 5 to 4 and see if it still builds06:09
oraklepretty good spead too..06:09
pupnik_50% of the time or more that will work06:09
erstaziorakle, yeah we are probably the only two leechers out there06:09
erstaziit went from 100% seeders to 75% seeders06:10
erstaziso if 25% are leechers06:10
erstazithat means there are 8 seeders06:10

erstazipupnik_, if you get the chance, will this install work with the 770? I didn't think maemo 3.0 bora was for the 770 with OS200606:16

Lurialegal torrents?06:17

*** shackan has quit IRC06:21
erstaziorakle, do you have a 770 or n800?06:21
erstazihonestly man, I would just partition and install ubuntu06:22
erstazithe 770 and ubuntu (since its debian based) talk very nicely06:22
_Monkeysidux is, like, a distro that tracks debian sid and catches problems/incompatibilities in an updater script.  Very fast/light livecd.  Very fast/clean install.  The less-annoying alternative to Ubuntu.  http://www.sidux.com06:23
pupnik_good monkey06:23
erstazipupnik_, which scratchbox 1.0.x do you have?06:23
erstaziorakle, or sidux as pupnik_ petted his monkey with haah06:23
pupnik_i don't remember06:24
oraklea livecd though?06:24
pupnik_it can run as livecd or installer06:24
oraklei see06:24
erstaziorakle, same with ubuntu06:25
pupnik_the lite version is cool too - under a gig installed iirc06:25
orakledoes it default to graphical?06:25
erstaziorakle, both do, also DSL is nice06:25
orakledebian did that to me and i can't even figure out how to make it go away06:25
oraklei jsut want cmd line :P06:25
erstaziorakle, you can get livecd's that do that06:26
pupnik_then edit /etc/inittab and change 5 to 306:26
orakledebian's "default install" includes the kitchen sink, it bothers me :P06:26
orakleit's already at 2 pup06:26

Luriabut yes, distro is what was thought, but didnt quite make it to the keyboard06:29
Luriait runs very nicely on old hardware but is very pretty06:29
bldewolfI tried to build wpa_supplicant without dependencies...does " fakeroot debian/rules clean" then "test -x debian/rules" then "make: *** [testdir] Error 1" :(06:30

*** Chili has joined #maemo12:27
greygoomh, i guess i don;t play often enough to have a preference12:27
whaqthe control pad on phones.. they come in various shapes.. plus sign, square\rect, and sound round\oval12:28
maddlerwhaq: square and rounds are both fine... just I have to "feel" the key-press...12:28
konttoriI would prefer a pad that I can use so that once I put my thumb on the pad, I can press any direction easily without moving my thumb to a different position by raising it first from the pad surface.12:28
konttorithe current dpad  on n800 is such that I have to take off my thumb to press down after I have first pressed up.12:28
konttorisame applies to left /right as well.12:29
konttoriSo, it doesn't function at all as a dpad. It's more like separate arrow keys12:29
konttoriand that's what I would call a bad dpad.12:29
greygoomh, i never play games on n800 with the buttons it has in the case, got some cheapshit bluetooth gamecontroller for the few times i need to play. However, got that 'cause i feared playing games using the internal buttons might wear them off somhow12:30
konttorinow, consider the prism dpan / stick. It's easy to press it in any direction once you have put your finger on it.12:30
nomisI kind of like the dpad on the 6300.12:31
whaqkonttori: yeah, the rocker type.12:31
konttoriAlso, if you consider prism pad, it's very small. What that means is that next maemo device might be smaller as well, as the dpad wouldn't need to take that much room from the left side of the device.12:31
*** jyro has quit IRC12:31

Phil770_hmm, a quickish question,13:41
Phil770_has anyone else ever had any trouble getting DHCP to work when connecting to an AP which has both MAC address filtering and WEP enabled ?13:41
Phil770_Actually the WEP part is probably irellevant13:41
Phil770_the 770's MAC has of course been entered into the AP's access list...but it's still giving me grief and I can't figure out why.13:42
scriptPhil770_: had the same setup for a while, worked13:47
scriptPhil770_: just dhcp broken?13:47
scriptsounds a bit odd13:47
Phil770_It always connects wit the message 'Local Link' with the ? sign over the connection, running /sbin/ifconfig reveals wlan0 has no IP, and wlan 0:1 has th 169.blah IP you get when DHCP hasn't given you an IP.13:48
Phil770_If I force a valid IP on the network, it doesn't work either13:48
*** qgil has joined #maemo13:49
scriptPhil770_: so you should check the logs of your ap13:50
scriptPhil770_: and triple-check the mac13:50
Phil770_I've quadruple checked the MAC, both from the GUI on the phone and via ifconfig13:55
Phil770_it's defientely set right.13:55
rwhitbyPhil770_: I have that with an AP running recent dnsmasq versions.  I was able to get it to work by setting a dhcp-host setting in the AP with a non-infinite lease.13:56
qgilTesting this nice-looking pidgin on IRC...13:56
Phil770_the AP doesn't do logging for anything useful like that. It's annoying it works everywhere else. I suppose I was just wondering if there was a general problem that was known about. I'll try disabling MAC control and/or WEP for a few mins to see if it helsp13:56
Phil770_qgil: how are you finding it ?13:57
*** matt_c has quit IRC13:57
Phil770_Generally I'd use Xchat for the 770 or just terminal/ssh/screen/irssi13:57
rwhitbyFor some reason the n800 didn't like the '0' which dnsmasq was returning for the lease period, and continued to try and get a lease.13:57
Phil770_the only trouble with using irssi is there is no ALT or Esc key so you have to keep typing /win foo13:57

saiamgreygoo: what are you trying to do with the usb host mode? You need the modified usb-hub that provides power for the usb devices.16:35
greygoosaiam: also on n800, i read that this was only necessary on n77016:35
greygooi followed instructions from and everything worked fine, only usb host mode - or any other mode - does not work with the patched kernel. So i wondered if somebody else got it working and the documentation just missed some crucial step16:36
saiamhmm, I'm not sure about that. Actually I don't remember which device it was when i used that :)16:36
Phil770_how much do you have to modify a usb hub..I've seen the injector designs, but would it work just to use a simple powered USB hub, using only 1 port, and some gender changer plugs/adapters ?16:36
greygoomy basic question is: as the muru website says that this can be enabled via sysfs as well i wonder if that is true, as i only tried that way up to now16:37

saiamPhil770_: I'm not an expert in this. But I think it doesn't work because the usb-hub doesn't give the power back to the N800. I didn't think about it too much, just connected the power wire to supply power to the Internet Tablet itself.16:40
saiamgreygoo: When I used it, atleast setting up some usb-keyboard and usb-ethernet connector was trivial and I wasn't required to do anything.16:41
saiam(after I had modified the usb-hub)16:42
saiam(and of course the ethernet-adapter needed some configuration)16:42
saiambut the keyboard worke straight away in xterm16:42
*** bergie has quit IRC16:42
greygooFor most USB devices you need to connect the N800 to a powered USB hub. N80016:43
greygoocan only provide 100mA of power, so basically any load on the VBUS line will16:43
greygoomake the host mode to fail. Since N800 can provide nominal VBUS power, a16:43
greygooN770 modified hub is not needed.16:43
greygoothats what i got from the muru page containing the patches. If thats wrong then I know my problem, however I read this more often in mailarchives as well16:44
greygoon800 has different usb chip16:44
saiamok, so you have a powered usb-hub then?16:44
greygoowhat mostly makes me suspicios that also non usb host mode does not work at all anymore16:45
saiamok, I'm sorry but I think I can't help you. I have experience of using usb-host-mode only with the 77016:45
greygooI can plug the n800 now in my computer and it does not detect any usb event at all (the compputer i mean)16:45
saiamgreygoo: hmm, that sound weird16:45
greygooyes, thats why i'm interested in experiences of someone else with the matter ;)16:46
greygoobut not in a hurry :)16:46

konttoriWell, I don't have a wiimote.19:27
megabyte405well, its utility is limited19:27
megabyte405no sensor bar yet (I think), so no pointing, just kind of tilting.19:28
konttoriAnd in the previous version, the bt stack wasn't able to connect ti it as wiimote does not support setting the connection code.19:28
megabyte405more of a novelty than anything at this point19:28
konttoriAnyway, it might be interesting to work as a dpad kind of controller for those wishing to play games (like emulator games) on the device.19:28

konttoriI agree it's more a sort of a novelty, but for those that would happen to have one, it might be nice to be able to use it.19:31

erstaziNermal, the ipaq 3600 has more storage and ram?23:02

erstaziNermal, personally, I own a 770 and I am quite satisfied with it23:02
erstaziNermal, there are many users who frequent this channel who are 770 users23:02
Nermalerstazi: I can basically justify 75 quid on what might turn out to be a cool toy - just can't do the same for the n800 at 250 or so23:03
erstaziNermal, honestly, it is worth the money and my opinion is its worth your efforts of getting it23:03
Nermalyah - sadly it's not arrived yet23:03
erstaziNermal, yes, the n800 is a newer toy but I think the 770 does a job well23:03

Dea1erstazi - did you use the new install script?23:29
erstaziJesseT77, I am googling something for you23:29
erstaziDea1, I went by the docs on scratchbox's site23:29
erstazilet me see what it was23:29
erstazidid you use the deb's from the scratchbox-debian repos?23:30
erstazifor stable main?23:30
Dea1Ive tried installing manually - had problems23:30
Dea1so i found this -
Dea1problem is the script wont run23:31
Dea1and im not a Linux expert :( (last time I played with Linux was Redhat 6)23:31
erstaziDea1, do you know how to edit your /etc/apt/sources.list?23:31
erstazion ubuntu that is23:31
*** kosola_ has joined #maemo23:31
Dea1yep - tried that erstazi - what sources did you use?23:31
erstaziDea1, let me grab them (:23:32
erstaziadd this to your /etc/apt/sources.list at the bottom: deb stable main23:32
Dea1sorry everyone for jumping on your chat....23:32
erstaziDea1, thats ok, you are in the right spot23:33
erstaziwb florian23:33
erstazihello kosola_23:33
Dea1aha - the ref I was looking at seemed to refer apophis23:33
erstaziDea1, it is23:33
erstaziDea1, this is the stable version of apophis23:33
*** Ryback_ has joined #maemo23:33
erstazithen go to terminal: sudo apt-get update23:34
Dea1ok - one of the references was to use ./ at the end (sorry not used to DEbian pkgs and terminology) but I see that has been superceded too23:34
erstaziDea1, that has been depreciated with the new system23:35
erstazithey haven't updated all their pages23:35
erstazion the main page it clarifies that in the news/updates23:35
erstaziI didn't know until someone else pointed it out23:35
Dea1I think thats the problem - too many versions (and im trying to learn maemo/linux and scratchbox all at the same time) - Fantastic piece of kit though the N770!! cant wait to start writing for it23:35
erstaziDea1, after you do sudo apt-get update tell me23:37
erstazibecause you can run: sudo apt-get install scratchbox-core scratchbox-libs scratchbox-devkit-maemo3 scratchbox-devkit-debian scratchbox-toolchain-cs2005q3.2-glibc2.5-arm23:37
erstazithese are what worked for me23:37
Dea1ok - trying now23:38
erstaziDea1, this will take a while23:38
erstaziDea1, large packages... now, what I found is, at first all you need is the first two packages, scratchbox-core and scratchbox-libs23:38
erstazithen you can do sb-adduser username *a lot* easier23:40
erstaziif this happens to you, then you can just remove the extra packages and reinstall (they won't download again, because they are achieved)23:40
Dea1ok - its away and downloading core and libs now23:41
Dea1what toolchain (think thats the correct definition) to cross compile to the N770?23:42
Dea1or do I not need one?23:42
erstaziI listed the one I use23:42
erstaziyou don't need that right away23:42
Dea1okay - maybe thats where I was getting confused - what is the arm-gcc3 toolchain for?23:42
erstaziyou want to get the user for sbox and the sbox group set up23:43
erstaziDea1, gcc23:43
erstaziGNU Compiler Collection23:43
erstazior the GNU C compiler basically23:44
*** ajturner has joined #maemo23:44
erstazifrom what I read, you can have as many toolchains and devkits as you want23:44
Dea1so which compipler does it use as standard then to write code (im looking to write in c)23:44
erstaziDea1, then you can add that compiler if you want23:44
erstaziyou have to make sure that the user that you add (my default user is "main" so I did sb-adduser main23:45
erstaziand made sure that in groups that sbox was listed23:46
erstaziand double checked that main was added to the sbox group23:46
*** kosola has quit IRC23:46
