qgilmilhouse: and here you go:
milhousesuperb! :) that should stop the natives from getting restless for another few weeks :D00:05
pupnikaww man fantastic interview from Scott Horton with Ron Paul -
pupniksorry wrong channel00:07
qgilmilhouse: I tell you with confidence that I can't invest the time I invested in the Tablet Advocacy thread now again  :)00:07
milhousei can imagine :)00:07
milhousemaybe you need to hire someone for that role?00:08
milhouseor to be part of their role...00:08
*** pdz- has joined #maemo00:08
milhousesomeone to deal with the plebs :)00:08
qgilI don't hire, but if anybody asks me I still tell that I prefer to hire people fix/improve/lead first - it is always easier and more grateful to provide explanations after that  :)00:09
milhousefrom your point of view, I can see why you'd say that. From my point of view, it's slightly different. :)00:10
qgilabout dealing with the community, we are working on this but concentrating on the channels00:10
milhousefair enough.00:11
qgilsome ITT people expects that Nokia employees should follow all the activity there and respond00:11
qgilwell, I don't know many OSS projects where developers are expected to be responsive out of the channels of the project00:11
milhouseabsolutely, it should be a part of your daily routine to read every post on ITT00:11
milhousebut it would be nice to see you there occasionaly00:12
milhousei think igor drops by every now and again00:12
milhousenot sure who sd69 is... might be an nokian00:12
infobotmilhouse meant: not sure who sd69 is... might be a nokian00:12
*** pdz has quit IRC00:12
qgilI don 't track userid's either00:12
qgilas I see it a lot of the fuzz comes from a non-common understanding00:13
*** DaniloCesar has joined #maemo00:13
qgillanding as a parachute in itt from time to time doesn't always help on this00:13
qgiland once you shoot then you have to continue00:14
qgilso really, I think it is good enough to be responsive always in the maemo lists, bugzilla, etc00:14
qgiland then there is some of you guys who are in both spaces00:14
milhousei don't think anyone is expecting continuous dialog there, but the occassional note might help. at least keep an eye on it to guage reaction and feedback... it's probably good for that in some capacity00:15
milhousefor instance, the cheap 770s and the WSoD and lack of support from Nokia - that's bad.00:15
milhousethough i'm sure that's been noticed in the ofifical channels also00:15
milhousewhere possible those of us who visit most of the official communication channels will feed back into ITT00:16
qgilmilhouse: when talking about hardware "lack of support" is not a right expression: you use the Nokia customer channels for that00:18
milhouseApparently Nokia are refusing responsibility00:18
qgilmaemo is about software - I really have little to say and do about hardware even if I have a @nokia.com00:18
milhousenot honouring warranty etc.00:18
milhouseunderstood - but whether it's software or hardware, it reflects badly on nokia/maemo/etc.00:19
qgil"apparently", do you remember a thread? Nokia support follows the threads there00:19
milhouseanyway... not your area so i'll drop it :)00:19
milhousethere are sever on itt00:19
infobotmilhouse meant: there are several on itt00:20
qgilthey are followed, reported internally, etc00:20
*** NetBlade has quit IRC00:20
milhouseas a summary, anyone who bought one of the cheap 770s is being refused a warranty repair for the white screen of death00:20
qgilcheap/expensive doesn't mean anything: the warranty text is the same00:21
milhouseit seems that devices were cross shipped to another continent where the warranty is invalid (ie. UK bought devices have US warranties etc.)00:21
milhousei'd have thought so too00:21
milhousebut apparently not00:21
*** threeuNF has joined #maemo00:21
milhouselet me find a not too long thread00:21
pupnikhey milhouse00:22
_Monkeymilhouse is, like, the owner of _monkey00:22
milhousemaybe you can clarify something: Was the WSOD fault rectified on the production line, and does it only affect a range of devices? or is it inherent in every device ever produced?00:23
pupnikoh nevermind00:23
qgilmilhouse: if you are talking to qgil, qgil can tell you that he has no clue about hardware, honestly00:23
milhouseok :)00:23
*** bladerunner has joined #maemo00:24
*** eichi has joined #maemo00:25
qgiland qgil knows only a little about sales and guarantees, not specifically about Nokia but in general as a consumer00:25
qgilbut if you buy legally a consumer electronics product the seller or distributors that sold it to you has to respond about the guarantee00:26
*** rowdy_23 has joined #maemo00:27
milhouseyou'd have thought so...00:27
qgila different thing is if you buy the device in your trip to the US or wherever and then try to claim something to a reseller or whoever in a different country00:27
milhouseif i bought a Nokia device on a trip to the US, assuming the device is also sold in the UK I'd fully expect Nokia to repair it under warranty - wouldn't you?00:28
*** MaemoUser has joined #maemo00:28
qgilmilhouse: depends on the guarantee text - I reckon I haven't read it.00:29
milhouseseemingly Nokia UK are looking up the MAC address and refusing the warranty because it was shipped for sale in the US, which is nuts.00:29
milhouseseems... unecessary.00:29
MaemoUsersomebody knows if when i call gtk_widget_destroy the childs are destroyed too? for example a container00:29
qgilin any case if you as a consumer think this is unfair you can rant on ITT but, really, where you should go is to the institutional office (sorry, my English lacks some vocabulary) where you can claim your consumer rights00:31
rowdy_23anyone knows if can i mount a samba partition located in a remote computer from the n800?00:31
qgilI'm not saying this as a Nokia employee and I have no special interest defending Nokia sales here00:31
qgilI'm saying this just as a consumer00:32
milhouseyep, that's what i tend to recommend to people - consult their local trading standards and stand by your consumer rights00:32
*** threeish has quit IRC00:33
milhouseit just seems unecessary - particularly as the WSoD is an all too common problem so I hope this doesn't continue for months to come. oh well.00:33
*** threeish has joined #maemo00:33
qgiloh well, a problem here is when we mix open source software practices with issues unrelated to the software itself: hardware, guarantees, etc00:34
milhousei'll shut up about hardware. :)00:35
milhouseand guarantees/warranties :)00:35
milhouseit does come up a bit on itt so wondered if you had any inside info - if not, no worries.00:35
qgilthen people expect that Nokia representatives (((I'm not talking about you))) will go to a web forum and answer to issues as if they were hackers00:35
*** MaemoUser has quit IRC00:36
qgilmilhouse: Nokia people in charge of gathering user satisfactions and etc follow ITT as part as the scanning of web, media, etc00:37
milhousethat's good to know00:37
qgilI'd say all the relevant issues reach the internal target, specially those relating to hardware00:37
milhousethere's a lot of noise there, but also some useful grass roots activity/frustrations/happiness etc00:37
qgilmilhouse: well, that's clear - no doubt about it  :)00:38
pupnikwhy do people who like free operating systems not value freedom?00:38
milhousewrong channel again? ;)00:39
qgilpupnik: freedom is one of the topics that got thinking more the phylosophers of all times - perhaps you want to develop a bit your toughts  ;)00:41
pupnikqgil perhaps you can help me become more developed00:41
qgilpupnik: provide an example00:42
qgilpupnik: if only to help me become more developed00:42
pupnikhabeus corpus00:43
pupnikdo you like torture?00:43
pupnikthere are people who support torture00:44
pupnikin power00:44
milhouseyou mean in the USA?00:44
milhouseland of the free?00:44
pupnikin the usa, germany, europe00:44
qgilpupnik: it's either habeas corpus or habemus papa00:44
*** threeuNF has quit IRC00:44
*** UKP has quit IRC00:44
milhousei'd go with habeas corpus myself00:44
pupniki will stop talking, but lets all support lawful government and freedom of speech00:45
qgilin fact only a subset of humans value freedom, and have a very different understanding between themselves about what freedom means00:46
qgilthe rest of species seems to ignore freedom00:46
qgilsome would say that "lawful" is uncompatible with "freedom"  ;)00:47
pupnikdepends on the country qgil00:47
qgiland the ideology00:48
milhousesoooo.... this n800 thing... is it any good?00:48
qgilbut if you are talking about the US, a different system of elections and a less powerful president would definitely help00:49
* pupnik tips hat to qgil00:49
rowdy_23anyone knows if i can mount a samba partition located in a remote computer from the n800?00:55
milhouseshould be possible00:57
milhousecheck fanoush's site00:57
milhousethere's a ZIP file with nfs, cifs etc.00:58
rowdy_23ok :D, thx for the tip...00:58
milhousealso search itt forums - it's been discussed several times00:59
*** amr has joined #maemo01:02
amrhow come when i umount my mmc01:02
amrand then reinsert it01:02
amri always get the message that it is corrupt01:02
milhouseevery time?01:02
amri dont think ive seen a time where it hasnt said that01:02
amrif i restart the device with it in its fine01:02
milhousethis is on a 770?01:03
amrand if i restart it without a card and then later insert it, its fine01:03
*** threeuNF has joined #maemo01:03
*** threeish has quit IRC01:03
qgilfinally, the blog entry I'm trying to write since...
qgilopening #maemo is always risky when you want to be productive   ;)01:04
qgilthat was just a joke, thanks milhouse and co for the (as usual) productive conversation01:04
milhousemy pleasure :)01:04
amri cant get any files onto my mmc-mobile card either :-(01:05
amrthe 770 can read/write it fine01:05
amrmy usb access to mmc's is flakey at the best of times, regardless of os too01:05
amri can read the files fine, but can only write about 8mb before it freezes up01:05
milhouseis the card any good?01:06
qgilmilhouse: btw, question for you (no hurries) - how you feel about the new ?01:06
amrhow do you mean milhouse01:06
amrthe mmc-mobile one?01:06
*** juco2 has joined #maemo01:06
amri have 2, both datawrite, one is rs-mmc the other is mmc-mobile01:06
amrthe rs-mmc can be read in my card reader and im currently writing to it and its fine01:07
amrthe mmc-mobile doesnt seem to be properly recognised at all by the reader01:07
milhouseqgil: looks a bit more stylish, main text font renders a little small in ff/xp01:07
amri cant use usb to write to either card01:07
milhouseqgil: i certainly prefer the wider widht and without the hackergotchis01:07
milhouseqgil: and the consistent flow is better - the first article always looked a little odd01:08
qgilwait, the hackergotchis are still in the planet01:08
milhousewhat am i looking at?01:08
milhouseoh hang on01:08
amrguess i might try back things up later and wipe all the cards and flash my 77001:08
milhouseqgil: the news page seems to be planet in a different format01:09
milhousewhat's going on? confused :(01:09
qgilit's not, look the sources of the news there: it's a mixture01:09
qgilit is intended to be the single page you will need to follow to get a grasp of whatever is relevant01:09
milhouseyes, it's a superset - a lot of planet articles, plus others... is that wise?01:09
qgilnow, please log01:10
qgilwith your maemo account01:10
milhousei saw the hearts thing... didn't vote for anything :)01:10
milhousei did think - why hearts (a bit cheesy)... why not mini tablets?01:11
qgilwhatever  :)01:11
qgilit's not only the hearts what makes a news go up on the rank and/or stay in the highlights, it's a ombination of factors, including Technoraty reputation, people linking that article in
milhouseand when i'm not logged in, how do i see the votes? i don't see the hearts when i'm not logged in - should i?01:12
*** pdz has joined #maemo01:12
qgilmilhouse: it's a bug
milhousei think someone has already opened a bugzilla entry for the workflow following a vote - i agree with that, it just leaves you on a page with a text box which is wierd.01:13
milhouseaha, good :)01:13
milhouse(good that it has a bug entry)01:13
qgilanonymous users will see hearts everywhere once this is fixed and once we have adapted the home to these news01:13
qgilmilhouse: yeah, that workflow has another bug submitted01:13
qgilthis is what betas are good for  :)01:14
milhousei need to visit news more often :)01:14
milhousei tend to hit planet by default (bookmark)01:14
qgilI'm following it regularly and, as usual, I'm processing a lot of web new pages with "maemo" in it01:14
qgilI'm surprised how clever the algorythm is when "editing"01:14
milhousei like the bugzilla changes - fine with that. i also saw the bug complaining about midgard and wiki - i agree the midgard "wiki" is primitive... should have diffs at least01:14
qgileven when people doesn't fave much as it's happening now01:15
qgilbugzilla changes, i'd like to see them applied in few weeks (and I can talk about deadlines about this)  ;)01:15
qgilthe wiki, yes it's my next battle01:16
milhousethe only thing i'd say about the fixed width - while i understand why it's there, i think it's going to constrain some content (ie. wide tables, long lines of code etc.) which is a shame01:16
milhouseany tables with more than half a dozen columns break out of the fixed width :(01:17
qgilmilhouse: I'm open to discussion as soon as real problems appear01:18
qgilbugzilla went flexible, other components can go flexible as well if needed01:18
milhousebug 139201:19
_MonkeyBug 1392 might be found at
milhouseoh great... the BluetoothDUN page has gone :(01:19
milhousethat page had a table that was all over the place! :)01:20
milhouseand had some useful info (what phones were known to work or had problems with tablets).01:20
qgilmilhouse: it's not gone, the content is there but the moin tablet format is not recognized01:21
qgilneed manual fixing (too late for me to go through this today)01:22
qgillet me 2 minutes to see thie BTdun page...01:22

milhouseso markdown doesn't support tables? you have to use html instead? bummer.01:28
*** slomo has quit IRC01:30
*** pupnik has quit IRC01:31
milhouse...and midgard preview is soooo slow01:32
qgil updated01:41
qgilmilhouse: on the other hand is usual to get complains about the limitations of creating tables in wikis, in this case if you know html there are no limitations01:42
qgilin fact midgard wiki can digest most HTML (because in its origin it's not a wiki)01:42
qgilthe midgard wiki needs fixing, I agreed with henri a list of changes but they are not done01:43
milhouseyeah... i'm just trying to convert that wiki table to html table - nightmare :)01:43
qgilnext week I will convert this list in public bugs so it's clear what is to be expected from the wiki01:43
milhousei'll try and update the bluetoothdun page using an html table tonight01:44
qgilmilhouse: that one is nightmare yes01:44
milhousewill keep the same columns for now, but at least get it to display01:44
qgiltime for me to zzzzzzz01:44
milhouseone advantage the wiki notation has over html is that it's easier to edit... this html could get messy :)01:45
milhouseg'night - and thanks again01:45
qgilthanks to you again  :)01:46

Luriaso im thinking about a 770 for my mom02:47
Luriaanyone tried such an experiment?02:48
erstaziLuria, my mother has used mine before02:48
erstaziLuria, just show her the basics, how to connect with wifi and where the browser is and a few other apps that might interest her, I did the same for my father02:48
Luriaand your mom isnt grace hopper, right?02:48
Luriai see02:48
Luriaand do they use it?02:49
sullyOh dear. I was going to get my parents one and... no. Bad idea.02:49
erstazimy mother dislikes computers, I have to guide her how to copy and paste a URL into an email and how to send the email02:49
Luriaoh my mom is ok on firefox02:50
erstaziLuria, they used mine for an hour02:50
Luriabut not much more02:50
erstaziLuria, the key of success is if they want to learn... anyone can desire but if they want to learn then its different02:50
Luriai guess you are right about that02:50
Luriasully, what happened with you?02:51
sullyI remembered my mother can't yet handle a mouse02:51
Lurianot the case here.02:51
erstazisully, technically, no one needs a mouse, except for gaming02:52
erstazi*some* games02:52
Luriamy mother is travelling more these days, so was asking about portable email devices02:52
erstaziLuria, honestly, the deals they have on the 770 are great for her02:52
sullyNo need to tell me, I used to do CAD without a mouse in the 90s02:52
erstaziand she can always learn02:52
sullyI used a HTC TyTn and was pretty impressed with it02:52
erstazisully, I am a web developer and thats our main focus is mouse-less user-friendly apps02:53
Luriablackberry, treo, etc... but she doesnt really want to check it on the bus - she wans a computer in miami or st. louis or whereever02:53
erstaziLuria, I would let her try it, $130 + free shipping at is not bad02:53
sullyTouchscreen, QWERTY keyboard, Windows Mobile02:53
Luriayeah. i have a shopping cart ready to go :-)02:53
Luriai like the htcs, but they are pricey and so is the service02:54
sullyhmm, I suppose02:54
Luriawhats the current stability of the 770?02:54
sullyIT 2006 is pretty good02:54
Luriaand 2007he?02:55
erstaziLuria, I use 770/OS200602:55
sullyHaven't tried. I guess you could set that up for her02:55
*** matt_c_ has joined #maemo02:55
sullyYou definitely want to do the boot from MMC and kernel hack to speed it up02:55
erstaziI am more the type to use a stable version before going with OS2007HE02:55
sullyVery annoyingly slow before that02:55

Lloydsully, when should I upgrade to 07?03:58
Lloydor the 'hacker version'

sullyI do need to figure out how to VPN on the 770 though04:01
Lloydthat's why I was going to use ssh, so I could 'safely' browser over open WIFI.04:02
sullyI really want someone to get the IP-over-DNS thing moving.04:02
Lloydhahaha... that would be awesome.04:02

BlacksitoxHi all. I have a Nokia n800 and my ISP requires a PPPoE connection over my configured WiFi connection04:41
Blacksitoxwhat are the possibilities to set up a PPPoE connection?04:42
rhysanyone know why themes dont work anymore on the n800? downloaded themes that is.04:42
Blacksitoxor can you tell me some web page, where I can read about configuring the PPPoE?04:42
DaniloCesarSomeone here know if a Palm BT keyboard works fine with N800?04:42
Lloydrhys:  some change in the theme engine, causing imcompatibilities, no work around yet (that I know of)04:43

*** NetBlade has joined #maemo11:03
soolekadd repository in app manager mistral main11:04
soolekand install dropbear using app manager11:05
Lynoureok, I'll try that11:07
Lynoureapp manager is something else than Application installer?11:09
Lynoure(sorry, I'm all new to this device)11:09
soolektools -> application manager11:10
soolekin n770 menu11:10
soolekthen inside app manager choose tools menu -> application catalogue -> new11:11
LynoureI don't have tools in that menu. Utilities, Control panel, Extras etc but no Tools11:11
soolekhow come:) it must be here11:12
LynoureThis could be quite early version... nokia's gift to a dd.11:13
soolekwhich software version do you have? -> control panel -> device -> about product11:13
soolekyes, that's the reason11:15
soolekthe newest OS version fot 770 is 3.2006.49-211:16
soolekI suggest you first to flash your nokia to the newest os version11:16
LynoureThere is a way to upgrade the OS, I bet? Though I think I need to ask liw first11:16
soolekthere's hardly any new software for the os2005 release11:16
LynoureI'm just borrowing this babe, it's not mine (though I'll get either N770 or N800)11:17
LynoureIs the OS upgrade easy and safe?11:18
LynoureI'll still ask the owner first, but that will help me sell the idea to him11:18
soolekjust make sure you have a battery fully charged11:18
Lynoureok, looks easy enough based on
Luria_anyone know how to decompile a vkb?11:21
soolekLynoure you can update from windows (there's a link to the updater) or you can also do it using a linux flasher11:23
Lynouresoolek: I prefer not to use Windows if I can avoid it11:23
soolekI assumed that, but just wanted to let you know :)11:24
LynoureThat's why I'm drooling at this device and not some WindowsCE :)11:24
soolekI have both I like n700 more, but there's much much more software for windows ce11:24
LynoureI am expecting compiling most debian things for this is not impossible if I really miss something. Could be a bit optimistic, though, but I mostly want it for reading pdf, feeds and checking email11:26
soolekLynoure once you reflash to the new os have a try my sources.list
soolekthere's a lot of usefule software already compiled11:27
Lynouresoolek: thank you for the link11:30
soolekno problem11:31

RocketmanCan you buy them where you are at?11:42
LynoureI live in Finland, so if one can order them somewhere, this ought to be that somewhere11:42
Rocketmanhehe, yeah just barge into Nokia's build and demand some stylii!11:43
RocketmanIf that doesn't work, nothing will11:43
RocketmanDon't worry, it's not serious, but it looks like the page you've requested isn't available.11:44

timelessright, nokia is thankfully not stupid enough to use 'Set' in a menu parenting a radio item17:13
disqit's also "Alignment" in n770. UK locale i think, not sure maybe US17:13
timelessright, the localizers are thankfully consistent here17:14
timelessand not that bad17:14
timelessthis menu wasn't designed by a localizer17:14
sullyyep, Alignment on the US locale of the 77017:14
timelessit was designed at the last minute by an engineer17:14
timelessbut it too isn't "Wrong" it follows English rules17:14
timeless"Set Engine" means no radio marks for the children17:14
disqah. the menu in microb hasthe "Set" prefix17:14
disqnow i get it17:14
timeless"Engine" alone would imply radio marks for the children17:14
timelessgood :)17:14
disqso, any chance to fix the browser, remove set, add optionbuttons?17:15
timelessthat's what we're going to do17:15
timelessminor problem though... we need to actually enumerate engines to do that17:16
timelessright now, the list is hard coded17:16

timelesswell, if i switch this to use radios17:16
timelessand the item you're using isn't in the list, *then* what?17:16
timelessand worse17:16
timelessif you *pick* something17:16
timelessand we don't switch *now*17:17
timelesswhat the heck do i show in the menu?17:17
timelesswhat you're using, or what you're going to use?17:17
disqa (Latched) suffix? not sure?17:17
disqthat's a big problem17:17

mk8Hi to all .... sorry for my silly question (and for my bad english of course ...  :( ) about 2 mounth ago someone told me that a new relese on OS for N800 will be relased and this version broke the API compatilibty but align all the library used to the last available. My information is correct? And if true this version is the last that it is released at the beginning of august?19:13
Luriaits sorta true19:15
sparrwon a tablet at auction19:15
sparrbut i cant really afford to keep it  :(19:16
sparrgonna end up having to sell it19:16
Luriathere was an alpha sdk release for maemo 4 earlier this month19:16
Luriamk8, google "chinook n800"19:16
Luriasome parts of chinook have been released as beta (micrb, rtcomm) but as yet, it isnt really out19:18
mk8Ok Luria, so this version will be an major version upgrade of the OS19:19
mk8you know when this OS will be out?19:19
Luriaplus switch to a packaging, and not a flash, upgrade system19:19
Luriano idea19:19
mk8the N800 hardware must be upgrade?19:20
Lurianew versions of maemo in the past required flashing and thus clearing the system19:20
*** shackan has joined #maemo19:21
Luriano they are using a desktop (downloading packages) approach19:21
*** jnettlet_ has quit IRC19:21
Luriaas a guess tho, since 3.2 was out in july, i wouldnt expect the new maemo 'til fall19:21
Luriathere is at *least* one more major firmware update confirmed after that19:22
mk8as usual, I just update to the 2007.26-8 version19:22
sparrso upgrade on new n800 firmware will be a simple apt-get dist-upgrade?  :)19:22
Luriathats the idea, supposedly19:23
Luriaone sec19:23
mk8no sparr ... in the other case you must download the image and install on the N800 .... obviously you lost all the data and the application.19:24
mk8For the data you can use the backup utility19:24
mk8but for the application you must redownload and reinstall again19:24
sparrmk8: i think that luria is saying that way is going away19:26
disqno. the next firmware (4.0) will be flashed. updates to 4.0 are planned to use the dist-upgrade method19:26
sparrwhich is a good thing...  there is no reason to require a reflash with a debian-based device19:27
Luriaim sorry, i should have been clearer19:27
sparri can only dream that they will stop ignoring the 770 long enough to backport SOME of that19:27
Luriadisq is correct19:27
Luriameh, just ordered a 77019:27
disqsparr: afaik a new release of the os2007on770 is around the corner19:28
mk8disq: in the 3.2 version I must use the flasher utility. If for the 4.0 version I can use apt-get I'm happy ... :)19:28
disqyou won't be able to dist-upgrade from 3.2 to 4.0, sorry19:28

keesjGorion1: it depends on what you want do do, in the 3.1 there are 3 part, sbox , the rootstrap, and the nokia binaries22:35
keesjI never had to install the binaries22:35
keesjwith 3.2 I don't understand it any more, one of those components is gone the roofs?22:37

Gorion1keesj: i want to test applications for n700. i supose i need the maemo rootstrap in this case yes?22:39
*** shackan has joined #maemo22:40
jjo_Gorion1: you didn't ask me but yes22:40
jjo_with scratchbox of course22:40
lle2keesj: I think it tries some sort of apt-get upgrade thing, "automatically"22:40
jjo_but actually 3.1 used scratchbox and had rootstraps, nokia binaries and rootfs22:41
jjo_3.2 has only repositories and nokia binaries22:41
Gorion1the problem was that i've installed maemo3.1 by the sh script and then the 3.2.. but every time i was trying to build deb packages the stopped saying that intltool was too old.. and it was the lastest version22:41
jjo_rootstraps are replaced by the upgrade process and rootfs was just plain dropped22:41
*** eichi has joined #maemo22:42
keesjlle2: yes, it creates a list of supposed packages.22:42
lle2keesj: makes it awful to try to test sb2 against it22:43
Gorion1i see22:43
keesjjjo_: thanks for the info.22:43
*** pleemans has joined #maemo22:43
lle2keesj: it requires sb1 + 3.1 rootstrap to get going, but the rootstrap basically lacks everything that apt-get needs to work22:43

Emh5945I need help with pidgin on my n77022:44
keesjlle2: indeed, why not use the smae trick you used for running on the system itself , so determine the packages from a running device or is that to messy?22:44
lle2keesj: sure, the target image would be useful, but it's not available as a tarball, fetching the contents from the jffs2 image is not trivial22:45
lle2sb2 can't use host apt or dpkg for installing, unlike sb122:46
lle2sb2 would need the buildroot to contain a working target apt and dpkg22:46
lle2been asking for that for a few months now, maybe some day22:47
Emh5945Can someone help me with pidgin on my n77022:48
*** pdz has joined #maemo22:48
Gorion1lle2: how did you installed you environment.22:49
erstaziEmh5945, I personally prefer gaim on my n77022:49
Emh5945I have tried both, and pidgin used to work but it suddenely stopped working22:49
keesjlle2: I guess it would not be such a problem if you could "just" create your own22:49
erstaziEmh5945, but my suggestion is make sure you download and install the protocols that you need, the actual Pidgin app only comes with the container, you personally need to download and install the protocols22:49
erstaziEmh5945, ah it was working but now its not, any error messages? any warnings?22:50
*** kupesoft has joined #maemo22:50
* keesj still has a broken browser on his n800 :(22:50
lle2Gorion1: I've not used sb1 for many years now, so don't ask me :)22:50
Emh5945I did install the prtocols, it was working fine then while i was using it it crashed and t no longer opens22:50
erstaziEmh5945, reinstall pidgin22:51
erstaziand the protocols22:51
kupesoftI'm thinking about getting the n800, but proper wireless injection stuff is *rather* important to me, since I do work in that field. I know the built-in 802.11 adaptor doesn't support it, but is there any reason I couldn't use a wireless USB dongle and compile my own drivers?22:51
Emh5945I have reinstalled it three times along with the protocols22:51
Gorion1i'am having a painfull error with intltool i removed and when i tried to reinstall it didnt find a package for it22:51
keesjGorion1: what os are you running?22:52
lle2kupesoft: if your dongle can get its power from somewhere other than n800, then maybe. the host patches are experimental though22:52
Gorion1but the error occurs inside scratchbox. it says that intltool is too old22:53
kupesoftlle2: Ah, it's powerless?22:53
Gorion1i don't know if intltool already comes with sbox or with the rootstrap22:54
lle2kupesoft: the battery gives use ~4V max, no way to really get meaningful 5V source22:54
Emh5945I've already tried reinsalling it along with the protocalls22:55
keesjNo, it's not powerless not on the n800 but it doe snot give much power22:55
kupesoftDo usb wireless dongles need more than 4V?22:55
keesjlle2: there was some charge pump but you are right I messured only 3,6 volt on the host22:56
lle2Gorion1: I think the intltool comes from sb122:57
*** amr has quit IRC22:57
lle2Gorion1: not at all sure though, but it would be the sb1 way22:58
lle2Gorion1: you can maybe install your own intltool to /host_usr inside sb1, depends if it's worth the trouble22:59
*** pdz- has quit IRC22:59
lle2Gorion1: use host-gcc to compile it if necessary22:59

amrEmh5945, whats up23:03
Gorion1lle2: but where is located host_gcc ?23:03
Emh5945Pidgin used to run fine then when i waas using it it crashed and it no longer opens, i have reinstalled it and protocols23:04
lle2Gorion1: inside sb1, say host-gcc23:04
lle2Gorion1: doesn't matter how your target is configured, it'll always do the same23:04
Siliciumare USB hostmode for N800 currently not availble?23:05
lle2Gorion1: so do something like this: CC=host-gcc ./configure --prefix=/host_usr && make && make install23:05
matmoevening all. 770 with HE, cannot install/uninstall anything. Even tried as root using "dpkg -r mplayer" but get "error in /var/lib/dpkg/status near line 9061 package osso-applet-textinput-l10n-ruru"23:05
keesjlle2: by default host-gcc is not installed on 3.123:06
lle2keesj: it isn't? oh my...23:06
lle2Gorion1: as I said, ignore everything I say, things seem to have, um.., evolved?23:07
keesjlle2: every new release is getting harder and harder to install.23:08
keesjperhaps not harder but it's constantly changing23:08
lle2keesj: survival of the fittest, aye?23:08
pupnikmatmo - you can fix that file by hand, or restore from a backup23:08
*** Yaco2 has joined #maemo23:09
pupnikmatmo: check that directory for backup file - run a diff between them23:09
matmook, trying now23:10
kupesoftCan anyone tell me what driver is used for the n800's wireless adaptor, lspci or otherwise...?23:10
pupnikkupesoft: i don't know - perhaps lsmod would show it23:11
Emh5945Pidgin used to work fine then it crashed while i was using it and now i fails to load, i have reinstalled it along with protocols it doesnt work23:11

Emh5945Come on i need help please23:16
matmopupnik: out of interest, do you know what corrupts "status" file?23:17
pupnikno - i had that error, googled the answer and that's about it23:17
matmook, at least mplayer is now trying to do something :-)23:18
matmo...but I think it's hung :-(23:19
matmoah no, back now but no play .flv23:19
pupnikis there a brand new it2007he out?23:20
matmo...but is player canola vid ok :-)23:20
matmopupnik: not when I checked a few hours ago23:20
matmoapart from the 770 installed vid this is the first time I have had one running on the 770 - neat! Better than I was led to believe23:22
amris it normal for kagu scanner to lock up my device?23:22

kupesoftkeesj: I'm having trouble finding said page,23:23
*** Emh5945 has quit IRC23:25
ssvbmatmo: also try '-nosound' or '-ao esd -ac ffmp3' options with mplayer to narrow down the problem23:25
pupniknice to see you ssvb... hope you're doing well :)23:26
*** pdz- has quit IRC23:26
matmossvb: thanks for the suggestion, I'll give it a go. The problem one is just a test dl from youtube. Next to try xvid23:26
ssvbpupnik: thanks, I'm fine23:27
ssvbmatmo: hangs are most likely related to audio output, flv or xvid hardly will make any difference (though trying more videos will definitely not harm)23:28
pupnikis the audio problem related to the it2007he dspsound/pcm3 -> pcm2 problem?23:29
matmossvb: yep "-nosound" gets the vid running23:29
ssvbpupnik: there were (and maybe still are) problems with fast starting/stopping gstreamer pipeline on N80023:30
amri just make my vids work with the inbuilt player23:31
amram i missing out or something23:31
*** shackan has joined #maemo23:31
ssvbpupnik: mplayer now uses 100 milliseconds delay before resuming playback as a workaround, maybe on 770 it does not work properly23:32
amrok this doesnt look good, my 770 can connect fine to my wireless network23:32
amrbut trying to get a website i get 'Network problem'23:32
*** Tahitibob has quit IRC23:33
*** mammoth has joined #maemo23:33
ssvbpupnik: probably the best solution would be free mp3 and vorbis decoders running on DSP in order to get rid of this gstreamer hack23:34
*** vivijim has quit IRC23:34
matmossvb: other option doesn't get sound. No prob, I'll check it later. The canola vid is flv so must be something about the utube one. Most my own vids are in xvid.23:35
*** mammoth has quit IRC23:36
pupnikagree ssvb23:36
ssvbpupnik: proprietary DSP codecs have one more disadvantage, there is no way to get decoded audio back from DSP which makes them unsuitable for A2DP23:36
pupniki blame TI :)23:37
pupnikalso the lugnuts who hold the mp3 patents23:37
amrugh what the hell is up with my 77023:37
*** vivijim has joined #maemo23:38

kreigamr: and the AP is not giving the n770 it's DNS server info, or giving it incorrecly?23:49

ssvbpupnik: did not try to compile them yet though23:52
pupnikbeing able to compile c code for the dsp makes it interesting for many applications23:53
*** tank1763 has joined #maemo23:54
pupnikvery exciting stuff - does omap 2420 share same dsp as 1710?23:54
ssvbpupnik: sure, it could be used as some kind of 2D accelerator for graphics23:55
ssvbpupnik: yes, it is, but dsp in omap 2420 is clocked at lower frequency, so it might be slower than dsp from 770 (memory speed can make the difference too, so I'm not sure)23:56
pupnikdid you write those ASM blitting tests in sdl?23:57
pupniki downloaded them somewhere - a few of the modes gave vertical bars23:58
ssvbpupnik: no, which ones?23:58
ssvbpupnik: are they at least fast?23:58
