pumpkin_I'm having some trouble getting maemo in scratchbox working on my ubuntu gutsy00:58
pumpkin_when I do apt-get update inside scratchbox, I get00:58
pumpkin_W: Couldn't stat source package list bora/free Packages (/var/lib/apt/lists/repository.maemo.org_dists_bora_free_binary-i386_Packages) - stat (2 No such file or directory)00:58
pumpkin_along with some stuff about not being able to resolve repository.maemo.org00:59
db48xthe file /var/lib/apt/lists/repository.maemo.org_dists_bora_free_binary-i386_Packages is missing, because it couldn't contact and so it was never created00:59
*** Vudentz is now known as Vudentz_AWAY00:59
db48x99% of the time it's because you don't have dns set up correctly00:59
czrpumpkin_, in sbox, grep hosts /etc/nsswitch.conf01:00
*** jjo has quit IRC01:00
czrdb48x, or to be precise, it's becase sbox setup breaks it :-)01:00
db48xczr: yea :)01:00
*** jjo has joined #maemo01:01
pumpkin_db48x: it says hosts: files dns01:01
czrpumpkin_, anyhow, replace the hosts like with this: hosts: files dns01:01
czrah ok01:01
czrpumpkin_, what does /etc/resolv.conf say (in sbox)01:01
pumpkin_has nameserver set to localhost :P01:01
pumpkin_that doesn't sound right01:01
czrinstall dnsmasq on the host ;-)01:01
czrthen it will "magically just work"01:01
czrplus it has the benefit of working even if your host will get a different ip from dhcp01:01
czrno need to touch the resolv.conf within sbox01:01
czrnormally people modify the resolv.conf to their real dns, but it seems slightly silly when dnsmasq just fixes the whole situation01:02
Pioyeah dnsmasq rocks01:02
czrbtw, no need to conf dnsmasq. install will set it up with proper defaults01:02
czrthen try doing generic ping tests within sbox to test dns01:02
*** netx has quit IRC01:02
pumpkin_still can't resolve it, inside my scratchbox01:03
pumpkin_and sbox doesn't have ping installed :(01:03
czrtry wget
czrthat will do a dns resolution as well01:03
pumpkin_that works, hmm01:03
*** erstazi has left #maemo01:03
*** Ginmanx has joined #maemo01:03
czryou might want to reinstall the sdk though (sbox should be ok now)01:04
czrnot sure how the "automatical install scripts" deal with dns problems. probably not all too well.01:04
czror try running apt-get update; apt-get -f install01:04
* czr shrugs01:04
pumpkin_reinstalling the sdk01:04
* czr nods01:04
pupniknot including ping is a very strange thing01:05
czryell if you run into more trouble :-)01:05
pumpkin_thanks :)01:05
czrnot really :-)01:05
pumpkin_maybe it's just not in my path01:05
*** bueroman has quit IRC01:05
pupniksounds like a refrain from an operetta...01:05
pumpkin_I'll take a look when I finish reinstalling it01:05
czrpumpkin_, using gutsy in couple of the test vms I have too01:05
czrother than the dns issue, no problems so far01:06
*** unique311 has joined #maemo01:07
*** blassey has quit IRC01:08
pumpkin_still not resolving :-/01:09
pumpkin_wget on works fine though01:10
czrdo you have http_proxy set?01:11
pumpkin_running it in a  vm though01:11
pumpkin_shouldn't affect it though01:11
czrshouldn't be an issue01:11
*** KwisatzHaderach has quit IRC01:11
czrif you're on a fast link, I'd just shutdown sbox and remove the sbox packages on the host and rm -Rf /scratchbox and let the installer run again01:12
pumpkin_sure, I am,01:12
czryou could try that. now that you have dnsmasq and all :-)01:13
pumpkin_remove the sbox packages?01:13
czryeah. dpkg --purge remove scratchbox*01:13
czror apt-get --purge remove scratchbox* (the asterisk might actually work)01:13
db48xit won't01:13
db48xyour shell will try to expand it as a list of filenames in the current directory01:13
pumpkin_weird, how did this happen01:14
czrdb48x, I'm assuming that cwd does not contain any names that start with that01:14
pumpkin_it's not letting me delete it cause there's a circular link01:14
czrdb48x, in that case the shell will leave the asterisk alone01:14
*** andrunko has quit IRC01:14
db48xczr: better to quote it01:14
czrpumpkin_, hmm. did you exit sbox and shut sbox down?01:15
czrdb48x, sure01:15
pumpkin_lol, I decided to really start from scratch01:15
pumpkin_and restore from a vm snapshot from just  before installing maemo and scratchbox01:15
czrthat will work too. just install dnsmasq first :-)01:15
pumpkin_yup doing that now01:15
db48xthat's what I do too01:16
pumpkin_can I install 3.2 directly, or do I need to do 3.1 first again?01:16
db48xread the readme file01:16
czrpumpkin_, aren't you installing 4.0?01:16
pumpkin_oh I could01:16
pumpkin_but I was scared away by the big beta sign on it01:16
czrit's not beta anymore01:17
czrIT2008 is not out yet01:17
pumpkin_it's fine for N800 development?01:17
czrso if you plan to deploy sw on ITs, it will be interesting :-)01:17
czrpumpkin_, not yet. unless your N800 is running 200801:17
pumpkin_so I should stick with 3.2?01:17
*** juh0 has joined #maemo01:17
czrprobably yes01:17
czrI don't know when 2008 will be released for N800.01:18
pumpkin_so I have to start with 3.1 and upgrade, right?01:18
czrafter 2008 is avail for N800, you should use 4.0/chinook.01:18
db48xactually, it's kinda funny01:19
db48xscratchbox is an attempt to avoid using a virtual machine for the whole OS01:19
*** carimea has joined #maemo01:19
db48xinstead using the VM just to run the single program you're developing01:19
*** carimea has left #maemo01:19
db48xand yet we all run it inside a VM because it's so annoying01:19
czralthough sbox was never meant to be a vm. just a fancy chroot01:20
czrbut yes :-)01:20
juh0is the os2008 available for n800? anyone tried flash the n800 with this firmware: RX-44_2008SE_1.2007.42-18_PR_COMBINED_MR0_ARM.bin01:20
czrjuh0, where did you get that?01:20
juh0ummm downloaded it from nokia www-site01:21
czrah. the RX-44 is for N81001:21
czralthough hmm. you can always try to flash it :-)01:21
czrjust don't blame me if it bricks the device ;-)01:21

hephaestus_because my 770 is running Bora now, so the hardware is not that different02:18
juh0Software update for Nokia N800 tablet leaks, fans go ga-ga.

doc|workreally? 2008 requires a serial number?02:33
db48xdoc|work: the source is still freely available02:33
doc|workjust binaries aren't?02:34
elbmany people have trouble with the concept of free software02:34
db48xbut it's been like that from the beginning02:34
*** red-zack has quit IRC02:34
doc|workah, ok, so, the article's fud?02:34
* doc|work is waiting for his n800 to arrive :/02:34
elbthe article is correct02:35
db48xwhich article? many of them are02:35
elbyour exclamation about "!foss" is FUD02:35
doc|workwas a joke :/02:35
elb(note that there *is* software on the Nokia tablets which is not open source, and the license they are under is available for your review)02:36
doc|workjust seemed odd that a serial was necessary and that it might be held back to "allow the n810 to shine"02:36
db48xthat's not so odd02:36
*** playya has quit IRC02:37
milhouseanyone got the bogomips for an n800 running os2007? from /proc/cpuinfo02:38
_Monkeyit has been said that howto is the maemo community HowTo Wiki -
milhousecat /proc/cpuinfo02:38
milhouseBogoMIPS will be listed near the top02:38
milhouseno way... really?02:38
milhouseah yes02:39
GeneralAntillesFor 200802:39
milhousei think it's about 1:1 on clock speed02:39
milhouseinteresting, for OS2008 mine is 160.68! :)02:39
GeneralAntillesAlso: return in fullscreen keyboard in xterm finally sends the command.02:39
milhouse388 would approximate to the CPU running at about 400mhz I guess02:39
db48xso why is yours only 160?02:40
milhouseanyone know how to check the current CPU speed?02:40
milhousedb48x - looks that way! :)02:40
milhousei'll reboot it and see if I get a different figure02:40
elb(note that bogomips are more or less completely meaningless on basically all platforms)02:40
milhousei know, but pretty much all there is...02:41
juh0i got 388.54 bogomips02:41
juh0but wow the os2008 is really fast02:41
milhouseboots a damn site quicker than 2007 :)02:41
milhousenice to see xterm included, although i'm not convinced by the "improvements"02:41
elbit sounds like the CPU speed change is with throttling, so your CPU won't be any given speed at any given point in time, anykway02:41
pupnikcan't wait to see transflective screen02:42
milhousebooted it and bogomips is 160.68 again02:42
pupnikbut that dpad looks... not quite game compatible02:42
*** alex-weej has quit IRC02:43
milhouseelb: I'm sure it's just a matter of time until someone creates a "load" type applet that displays the current frequency. or something.02:43
milhouserss reader manages to show fewer items than the old version - genius!02:43
elbI don't know if the architecture supports it, but if what you *really* want to know is what speed the CPU is currently running, check /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_cur_freq02:43
*** jott has quit IRC02:44
elb(I do not yet have a device, so I don't know if cpufreq is accessed the same as it is on other architectures)02:44
GeneralAntillesAnybody have a link to the website with all the NIT repos?02:44
milhouse165000 here - so that 165Mhz02:44
GeneralAntillesListed all the packages and such?02:44
infobotmilhouse meant: 165000 here - so thats 165Mhz02:44
milhouse(thanks elb)02:44
elbif you did something CPU intensive, I presume that would crank up to as much as 400MHz02:44
elbcpu_max_freq and cpu_min_freq may also be informative02:44
*** TPC has joined #maemo02:45
hephaestus_so i have an interesting problem, im on a network with WPA enterprise, using tls and a User Cert/Authaurity pair, and my 770 Running bora cant seem to handel the cert correctly, when i try to connect it asks me for my cert password tehn imeadiatly fails to connect, any ideas how to get debug info for the network connection so i can start to track down the problem?02:45
*** TPC- has quit IRC02:45
*** vivijim has joined #maemo02:46
milhousemine seems to bounce between 165Mhz and 400Mhz - nothing in between02:46
elbyou would need a work load that continually utilized more than 165MHz but left the processor significantly idle at 400MHz to see something else02:47
elbon my laptop, I normally see either the slowest or fastest speed, as well02:48
juh0400000 here ;)02:48
zerojayRestoring my IT2008 backup as we speak. :D02:48
*** netx303 has joined #maemo02:48
pupnikI want to nitrogen cool my 77002:49
db48xso what happens if I restore a backup that was taken with IT2007?02:49

GeneralAntillesThis thing really screams.02:52
*** _pcfe_ has quit IRC02:52
hephaestus_anyone know the command line arguments to have the 770 or n800 connect to a network with any debug info, or where to find a logfile?02:53

milhouseanyone succeeded in installing Skype on OS2008?02:54
GeneralAntillesNot I.02:54

db48xI need to install that too. I heard that my Grandmother was complaining that I hadn't been on02:55
*** Atarii has quit IRC02:55
milhousethis frequency scaling worries me - the device seems to pause briefly before it switches up to 400Mhz02:56
*** netx303 has quit IRC02:56
*** Ryback_ has quit IRC02:56
GeneralAntillesBetter than having no battery life. ;)02:57
milhousethat remains to be seen :)02:57
doc|workwhat will the new battery life be like?02:57
GeneralAntillesProbably about the same02:57
GeneralAntillesMore power + scaling = similar battery life.02:57
milhousethere must be some improvment... maybe an extra hour?02:58
doc|workhad there been no scaling before?02:58
milhousenone at all02:58
elbwhat do you mean by "pause briefly" ?02:58
*** netx303 has joined #maemo02:58
elbif you mean that there is some hysteresis, that is good02:58
zerojayAwesome.. "Display stays lit when charging" option! ;D02:58
milhouseassuming it spends most of it's time running at 165Mhz (which seems the minimum freq) instead of 330Mhz the battery will probably last a little longer than it did before...02:58
doc|workdoes watching a movie bump the cpu up?02:59
milhouseelb: it's like lag... maybe for half a second to a full second02:59
GeneralAntillesYeah, zerojay, the LED options are a nice feature, too.02:59
GeneralAntillesI'll actually turn the damn thing on now.02:59
elbon most processors, there are lost cycles in changing the frequency (and lost cycles means lost power), so you don't *want* it to changae frequency for a tiny burst of CPU usage02:59
elbmilhouse: do you mean the whole thing freezes up, or that it simply takes it a second to decide to kick up to 400MHz?03:00
milhouseelb: both - it seems to pause, and then it continues once it has switched up to 400Mhz03:00
pupnikzerojay: nice nice03:01
milhousei'm just running a simple terminal session via ssh which is logging the current freq every second - that pauses too when switching up (but not down)03:01
elbI have a hard time believing that the whole thing freezes up when it changes frequency03:01
elbor that it is supposed to03:01
milhouseplaying BBC Radio 1 real audio stream and my cpu is chugging along at 330Mhz03:01
elbnow, accessing /sys/devices/system/cpu/... *may* pause, that's is entirely likely03:01
GeneralAntillesI'm not seeing the effect you're describing, milhouse.03:01
milhousemaybe it's something else then03:01
*** TimRiker has joined #maemo03:01
milhousehope it is - this freq scaling is a major feature03:01
elbyou're not likely to learn anything *useful* watching that like a hawk ;-)03:01
GeneralAntillesWorking d-pad scrolling in MicroB is another nice one.03:02
milhouseWatching the Nokia N810 video and the CPU is running at 330Mhz03:03
milhousemight hit 400Mhz with a higher bitrate perhaps03:03

milhousei find the new scrolling rss reader applet confusing - it looks like it's got a scrollbar, but you can't drag it03:06

milhouseall my bugs being any bug i've opened or commented against03:25

milhousei mean how difficult is it to change "clips" to "songs" in media player? bug 1064 is typical of Nokia and their "specifications", makes me mad...03:27
_MonkeyBug 1064 might be found at
zerojaymilhouse: People here call them clips as well.03:28
milhousei've never heard anyone call a song a clip - a film, yes, but not a song03:28
milhousewhere is here, btw?03:28
zerojayHere they do.. here being Canada.03:28
elb"clip" means something different from song, here (en_US)03:29
zerojayBut it's something that french people do more than english here.03:29
milhousethat might make sense - it's not really an english term at all03:29
zerojayI'll bet it's just a mistranslation that never got fixed.03:29
GeneralAntillesWhat's the root password?03:29
_Monkeythe root password is rootme03:29
elba "clip" is a perfectly normal term for an audio file, but it implies that it is only part of a larger work03:29
elblike, the first 30s might be a "clip"03:29
GeneralAntillesLies, _Monkey.03:29
_MonkeyGeneralAntilles: sorry...03:29
GeneralAntillesYeah, I've never heard anybody refer to a "song" as a "clip" or a collection of music as "clips"03:30
milhouseelb: possibly, but i'd associate clips more strongly with movie/film media than audio which has a clear and simple term of reference on a media player - song (or track)03:30
zerojayWho wants to try internet call? ;)03:30
elbright, for a complete piece, "song" is obviously the correct term03:30
zerojayJust a minute or two to try it out. :)03:30
elbbut "audio clip" is a normal and often-used term -- just misplaced, here03:31
db48xno more typing suggestions in xterms?03:31
milhousealthough of course not all tracks will be songs, could be audio books so track might be a more general and still accurate term :)03:31
milhousemy point is though, that it's probably taken longer to debate the point in bugzilla than it would to actually fix the bug in the first place - which hasn't been fixed! :)03:31
zerojayInternet call now disables and greys out contacts not on Jabber/Gmail or does not have a phone number associated.03:32

*** K`zan has joined #maemo03:41
K`zanHi Folks, thinking (seriously) about getting an N800 and am trying to figure out what is available for it - would like to replace my Palm Z31 with it, things like jpilot and perhaps kontact - dunno yet :-).  Much to learn.03:42
K`zanJust gonna read the mail for a bit here...03:42
milhousecheck the itt website it now has a palm os forum03:43
K`zanThanks, but I am pretty fed up with Palm, they used to be stellar, but that was a while back - buggy hardware and software do not inspire me, but linux embedded does :-)!03:45
K`zanFBReader is a BIG plus :-) considering I probably use the Z31 for more of an ebook reader than anything else.03:45
K`zanOrganizer and scheduler I can sync with the desktop would loosen my wallet NOW :-).03:46
K`zan Looking at apps over on the maemo site now.03:46
K`zanKind of confused at this point - is the 2007 OS Nokia or maemo, appear to be the same?!?03:47
milhouseit's the same03:47
pupnikthe os itself is called ITOS.  ITOS 2005, 2006, 2007, 200803:48
milhouseand Maemo is the organisation that creates each IT OS, staffed by Nokia employees03:49
K`zanCoolness, thanks!  Was introduced to the 770 and I like that a lot, but the 800 seems a bit cheezier and the 810 worse :-(.03:49
K`zanSmart folks :-)!  Appreciated too.03:49
GeneralAntillesN800 is the way to go03:49
GeneralAntillesDon't bother with the N81003:49
* K`zan linux junkie / freak / affectionado :).03:50
pupniklooking forward to having you around to test software03:50
K`zanThanks, that is the impression I get too, primarily beacause of the RS-MMC that are either unobtanium or damned expensive :-).03:50
K`zanWOuld be glad to help out where I can - always with linux :-)!!!!03:51
pupnikall options are good. 770, N800, N810 - for different reasons03:51
K`zanLike the physical aspects of the 770 better than the 800, but....03:51
K`zanMust be why they make so many different types :).03:51
K`zanBig fingers :-).03:52
pupnikyeah 770 is a rock.  dropped mine many times03:52
K`zanSad thing is that it is about a wash price wise by the time one adds an RS-MMC :-(.03:52
pupnikreally?  what is 2GB rsmmc?03:52
K`zanup to 16G on the 800 is rather impressive :-).03:52
K`zanI forget now, but MUCH more than a 2G SD card.03:53
K`zanThat is what has had me balking on getting the 800, but I am now about a 10th of a nats wisker from ordering it :-).03:53
GeneralAntillespupnik, maybe, but not when you consider price. :P03:53
pupnikthe N800 also runs a bunch of games that the 770 cant quite handle03:53
K`zan800 is faster too.03:53
deejoeI've only dropped my n800 once.03:54
deejoeso far, so good.03:54
K`zanIf I can use it as a pda with the desktop stuff, that clenches the deal...03:54
deejoeit's the requisite "must drop each mobile device at least one time"03:54
pupnikdunno who here knows about syncing scheduler - ITT forums is the best place to search for that stuff03:54
K`zanREAL tired of the screen requiring constant calibration on the Z31 (or screwing around to compensate for it).03:55
pupnikif you're outside much, the N810 screen is said to be daylight readable03:55
K`zanFirst thing I do with anything new anymore is scratch it with a key so I am over worrying about it all :-) Lol103:55
K`zanThat would be nice, the Z31 is completely useless in that department...03:55
K`zanOld Vx/C3 was quite usable.03:56
pupnikso is my psion netbook (dstn tft)03:56
elbthat was really nice about the old school palms with their B&W displays03:56
pupnikyes, and the psion mx5 too03:56
K`zanYep and batteries lasted FOREVER.03:56
elbyou could use them absolutely anywhere03:56
K`zanYep, unlike the Z3103:56
elbyeah, I put new AAAs in my IIIc ... seldom03:56
K`zan:-).  Ran the C3 for years and battery was never a problem.03:56
elbmaybe 2-3 times a *year*03:57
K`zanI use it a LOT more for an ebook reader than anything else.03:57
elbof course, the old Palms cheated, a bit, in that they went to sleep after just a few ms of idle time03:57
K`zanGood for something to do in checkout lines :).03:57
elband the only thing that was refreshed was that cheap, cheap, cheap LCD03:57
K`zanYep, true, no color, only 8M of  flash....03:57
K`zanShame palm has gotten so sleezy since then :-(.03:58
milhouseare maps downloading for anyone?03:58
milhousemy download progress bar is stuck and not moving03:58
K`zanWonder if gpsdrive or roadnav works on the 800?!?03:58
elbthere is a GPS kit for the 80003:59
K`zanWould be nice to plug in the GPSMAP76CS.03:59
elbwhich includes software, the GPS unit, and maps03:59

K`zanSilly newbie question, can one raid the debian / ubuntu repositories for stuff for the n800 or only maemo?  Yeah, I really am seriously ignorant at this point and working hard to resolve it :).'04:01
K`zanGeneralAntilles: Hadn't thought of that - nicer package wise.04:01
juh0you need to download maps if you use n800 and os2008, i just tested bluetooth gps receiver with os2008's wayfinder04:01
GeneralAntillesThe debian stuff has to be recompiled04:02
GeneralAntillesnot 100% straightforward04:02
K`zanHeh, not even sure which OS the one I am lookjng at comes with, but that appears not to be a problem.04:02
GeneralAntillesthe GUI stuff has to be ported for Hildon04:02
K`zanMakes sense, There is an SDK I notice.04:02
derfK`zan: They're a good starting point but you'll generally need to do some repackaging, even for non-GUI things.04:02
K`zanCurrently running fedora, which I am not sure I'll stick with at this point.04:02
K`zanderf: Not a great problem, unlike the Palm crap, I have a far better start with the n800, I think.04:03
pupniktry sidux!  a modern, free debian sid without the instability.04:05

GeneralAntillesAs long as you overlook the whole "no tethering" part.04:09
K`zanHaven't considered it because the cell phone just sucks for that (razor v3xx).04:10
K`zanNo tethering?  As in running an access point NATted through it?04:10
pupniksome ppl have reported headaches with pairing stability with razrs04:11
K`zanHow else you going to do that?  Other than BT?04:11
GeneralAntillesMotorolas of any kind are garbage04:11
K`zanBT modem I think it is.04:11
K`zanAll the choices for the "free" phones suck, the razor just sucked least - all I wanted that for at the time was a PHONE :-).04:11
K`zanAt least with the razor I don't have to confirm EVERYTHING I do by BT.04:12
elbyes, phones should just be phones04:12
elbphone/camera/mp3 player/PIM/blah blah blah is stupid04:12

deejoeI've used an apple bt keyboard and a thinkoutside folding keyboard05:23
deejoeon the thinkoutside keyboard, several of the keys are supposed to be accessible by hitting the blue Fn key05:24
deejoehowever, it gets intercepted somehow by the n800 and so hitting Fn causes a menu to pop up instead of allowing use of, say, PgUp or Esc05:24

tuxthepenguinAnyone here installed Maemo SDK (in particular maemo-explicit package) 3.0 and willing to help me with ideas on a problem I'm having installing ?05:50
tuxthepenguinerr goal is to setup 3.2 but it says install 3.1 first05:50
*** lord_moonraker has joined #maemo05:51
*** lord_moonraker is now known as vabgeo05:51
tuxthepenguinthe directions say to install maemo-explicit for both targets (X86 and ARMEL)05:51
vabgeohi all, is support of glade removed from chinook?05:53
tuxthepenguinX86 went fine but ARMEL failed with a post install error during the install of hildon-input-method - apparently it tries to run an app as part of the post-install configuration process. That executable will not run (of course) because I am inside scratchbox and on an X86 machine - the app it wants to run in that scratchbox is of course an ARMEL binary so won't run.05:53
monarchpupnik: I am using the GPE files from

tuxthepenguinDo I need to anyone have any ideas? Do I need to setup my tablet as a transparent target and plug it in - or something like that???05:54

*** netx has joined #maemo06:00

tuxthepenguinapophis R406:02
tuxthepenguini just followed the directions in the maemo install docs which started by saying how to install scratchbox using a script06:04
tuxthepenguinthen indicated i needed to install maemo SDK 3.0, so i used that automated install script next (I used the automated scratchbox setup too)06:04
tuxthepenguinwait let me restart that summary06:05
tuxthepenguin1) followed directions and installed scratchbox06:05
tuxthepenguin2) used automated install for maemo SDK 3.006:06
tuxthepenguin3) used automated install to put nokia binaries in place06:06
tuxthepenguin4) installed maemo-explicit to x86 target06:06
tuxthepenguin5) attempted to install maemo-explicit to ARMEL target06:07
tuxthepenguinthat's it in a nutshell...06:07
tuxthepenguinshould I have grabbed a root file system at some point? was it part of one of the automated installs?06:07
pupniki don't have experience with that06:07
pupnikno idea what 'maemo-explicit' is06:08
tuxthepenguinyou installed using a different process than the documentation describes?06:08
tuxthepenguinWhat did you do and where did you find the info?06:08
pupniki have an older scratchbox06:08
pupniki think they changed the process a bit06:08
tuxthepenguinok which one: 2.0? 3.0?06:08
pupnikVersion: 1.0.706:10
tuxthepenguin(oops just noticed I said maemo 3.0 again - I am actually installing 3.1 so I can upgrade immediately to 3.2 - this is a clean install inside a nice user mode linux box)06:10
tuxthepenguinthat's pretty old i suspect06:10
pupnikscratchbox version != maemo version06:10
tuxthepenguinahh yes... my mistake06:11
pupnikinteresting uml06:11
pupniki use this soemtimes - might have some problems with scratchbox actually06:11

*** monarch has left #maemo06:15
tuxthepenguinthe debian package is running a script (some sort of post-install process to configure things) - it tries to run an application which is present but is an ARMEL binary. when that fails, the post-install fails - this prevents other packages scheduled for installation to fail to install06:15
*** eton_ has joined #maemo06:16
tuxthepenguinpupnik: the directions indicate there are proprietary binaries from nokia that are provided so that you can run some of the commonly shipped apps on your tablet, in this dev environment - things like the control panel, the general window manager etc.06:17
tuxthepenguinthey point at an automated install script which will install theses in the scratchbox targets06:18
tuxthepenguinplease see these urls for the directions I'm following to get this all setup06:18
tuxthepenguinI succeeded with a previous install (SDK 2.0? 3.0) under uml06:19

K`zanAt what point does the SDHC thing become an issue for SD cards?  4G ?06:38
GeneralAntillesThere are both kinds for 4GB06:38
GeneralAntillesBut the N800 will handle any SD card just fine.06:38
zerojayAnyone happen to know where the list of contacts is stored on the N800?06:39
zerojayI want to blow my contacts away and start fresh.06:40
K`zanOK, Thanks, somewhere I got the impression that above some value you needed SDHC for the cards to work.06:40
GeneralAntillesWell, yeah06:40
GeneralAntillesbut the N800 supports SDHC just fine06:40
GeneralAntillesso it's not an issue.06:40
K`zanErr, sorry to be dense, but if it doesn't matter what is the point of SDHC?!?06:41
GeneralAntillesIt matters for addressing the card blocks06:42
K`zanPerhaps older stuff that did't know about the limit (forget what it was now).06:42
GeneralAntillesIt doesn't matter for you buying cards to put into your N800.06:42
K`zanLike my camera or the palm.06:42
K`zanOk, looks like about $41/4G from newegg.06:43
GeneralAntillesSD addresses by byte and SDHC by sector06:43
GeneralAntillesIt's a difference on the card and in the software06:43
K`zanIf I have a choice would I be wiser to get the SDHC?06:43
GeneralAntillesso it matters on older devices which don't have support for sector addressing06:43
GeneralAntillesbut the N800 has support for both byte and sector addressing, so it doesn't matter.06:43
*** RP has joined #maemo06:44
GeneralAntillesWell, yes, because 8GB isn't that much more expensive and it's twice the capacity.06:44
K`zanSo the SDHC is for older devices and it fakes out older software - so to speak - so it can use more than it "should"?06:44
GeneralAntillesUh, no.06:44
GeneralAntillesSDHC is the new standard06:44
GeneralAntillesIt supports capacities over 4GB06:45
GeneralAntillesSD does not06:45
K`zanOK, so forget SDHC for older devices.06:45
GeneralAntillesSD does not because it addresses by byte, so it runs out of address space06:45
GeneralAntillesSDHC addresses by sector (bigger) so it doesn't run out of address space nearly as fast.06:45
K`zanSome limit on that.  IIRC my camera will only use 1G SD cards.06:45
GeneralAntillesBut SDHC wont work in older devices without a firmware update to those devices.06:45
* K`zan bangs head on wall :-)06:46
GeneralAntillesWell, there may be other variables involved on the camera side06:46
GeneralAntillesBut SD as a STANDARD only supports 4GB (well, 2GB, but they managed to hack up 4GB cards)06:46
K`zanIn the case of the N800, "don't worry about it" :-)06:46
K`zan:-) done!06:46
GeneralAntillesSorry, I have a tendency to bring technical issues into play when people don't really want/need to know about them. ;)06:47
K`zanNo problem, appreciate the education :-).06:48
K`zanI think I'll just go with the 2G and 1G cards I have until I have some clue about what I actually need on the n800.06:48
K`zanI got the 2G for the camera (Cannon S2IS) and I have yet to get even vaguely close to using up (at highest res) the 2500+ pix that can store :).06:49
GeneralAntillesDrop a couple of movies on there and it'll be done fast06:49
K`zanIn real every day use I could use the internal memory :).06:49

GeneralAntillesIt looks great.06:56

elbif I'm close enough to home for that, I'll watch on the TV ;-)06:58
GeneralAntillesThen what's with space constraints?06:58
elbI'm thinking more along the lines of at 20k feet over the Atlantic06:58
GeneralAntillesOf COURSE you're going to be a little constrained on the device06:58
GeneralAntillesjust buy yourself a pair of 8GB cards and you'll be set for a flight06:59
elbright, my point is, my quality will be determined by space, not what the device is capable of06:59
GeneralAntilles(and an extra battery if they don't have a jack)06:59
GeneralAntillesHehe, my opinion is to go with the best quality and whatever fits . . . fits. ;)06:59
elb'cause I can't afford two 8GB cards, either ;-)06:59
elbnear-TV-quality can be had in about 2GB/hour at 480x480 or so07:00

K`zanThanks, was just wondering about that :), 150x class6 none noted...07:10
tuxthepenguinanother canned kernel from there had it built-in (it was also newer - kernel 2.6.23 instead of 2.6.19rc507:10

fysaevery bit helps with the n800 :)07:11

l7the n800 is a little pokey?07:11
l7i tried it out in store, but i'm not sure if the firmware was updated07:11
l7K`zan: you can check out this page for tests:
fysa... it's a handheld.  without a hdd and with 128mb.  faster card = faster swap07:12
K`zanIs the flash a disk in the N800 or RAM - yes, my ignorance at this point is legion, sigh...07:12
l7hrm yeah07:12
astro76these speed tests cover SDHC cards
K`zanOr both...07:13
_Monkeyboth are important07:13
astro76and if you compare kingston class 2 versus class 6, there's hardly a difference, so take the classes with a grain of salt
GeneralAntillesThere flash in the device for storage and there's RAM inside the device, too.07:14
l7the n810 spec sheet says it has 128mb ddr ram and 256MB flash...07:14

astro76and neither are worth it for the n80007:58

l7GeneralAntilles: er i meant camera, not phone08:05

tux2because don't link to the original page11:37
czrthe 2008 version hasn't been (yet/officially) been released for N80011:37
Kacoso N800 can be updated to OS2008?11:37
czrKaco, yes11:37
Kacoah ok11:37
Kacobut it is planned i guess11:37
czrit works nicely11:37
czrfor 2008, you'll want to use the 4.0 sdk though.11:38
Kacohmm but that keyboard really rocks on N81011:38
VeggenKaco: yes, soonish. There's an unofficial hack now.11:38
Kacothere's N800 on ebay for $260 ... and N810 will be something about $49011:38
tux2Can someone help11:38
Kacoi will think about it :)11:38
tux2me to the wiki problem11:38
pupniki promise not to work on mtpaint (cough)11:38
czrKaco, it boils down to the keyboard and gps really.11:38
Kacowell and that is a good reason for me to wait for N81011:39
czrKaco, maybe size too, but the size diff is pretty marginal11:39
Kacobut it's expensive damn it11:39
Kacoit also looks better ;-)11:39
pupniksony ux is expensive11:39
czrKaco, if you already have a working bt GPS, I'd go for the N80011:40
czrotoh, it's up to you of course :-)11:40
pupnikhow many commercial apps are there for the tablets?11:40
Kacowell GPS is not that important for me, more like a bonus11:40
Kacobut keyboard :)11:40
czrI still write faster with the vkb on n800 than the keyboard on n810 :-)11:41
Kacobut I guess there are some USB keyboards ?11:41
czrthe keyboard needs some time to get used to11:41
pupnikKaco - there appears to also be pressure sensitivity for the stylus that you can use11:41
Kacoczr: do you have N810?11:41
czrKaco, yes.11:41
Kacopupnik: oh with N810?? that's cool11:41
Kacoczr: but it is not yet on sale... so you've got dev version?11:41
czrI built one myself!11:41
* czr hides and runs11:41
astro76Kaco, no reason for ebay, it's ~230 in regular stores11:41
Kacoczr: haha, how?11:41
czrKaco, joking. dev version.11:42
Kacoczr: ok do you think it is still possible to get dev version from nokia?11:42
Kacoczr: I tried to contact them, but they left me with no response11:42
czrah, if you mean the developer program, then probably not11:42
astro76Kaco, the display on the n810 is also a big consideration11:42
Kacoastro76: yeah I read somewhere it has better contrast11:42
Kacoczr: hm too bad11:42
czrKaco, I didn't participate in the dev program. those will be sold when the device hits the markets11:43
astro76Kaco, it's transflective, readable in full sunlight11:43
Kacoczr: so how did you get it? :)11:43
Kacothere's one N810 on ebay11:43
czrKaco, it's a secret.11:43
Kacoahha :-D11:44
czrtimeless, hmm. weird. seems that keeping a youtube page open in microb will keep the device from going into powersave mode.11:44
czrtimeless, although not really sure whether this is a microb issue, but people are likely to run into it with youtube anyway11:44
czror maybe something else is happening.. mhmhm.11:45
czrcause now the backlight was shut off..11:45

czrpupnik, why would you want to edit ps? :-)12:17
L0cutusalternatives ?12:17
TPCpdf as a format is not too fat and slow12:17
TPCthe problem is that people use it the wrong way12:17
TPCputting text as images for example, that makes pdfs very slow12:18
czrthe pdf base format is quite simple though. much easier to use than ps ever was. ps was too free-form for structural processing.12:18
pupnikgive another example12:18
*** ulysses has quit IRC12:18
TPCwell, using it for the wrong purposes12:19
TPCdocuments intended for online viewing should be html12:19
TPCthats not what pdf was designed for12:19
TPCit was designed for having a single format that would look the same both on the computer and when printed12:20
pupnikpdf wasn't designed, it is a cancer12:20
TPCso its good for things like newspapers, books, some documents12:20
L0cutusi'm trying to open a 30mb pdf book ...12:21
pupnikL0cutus: well you can download pdf2html12:21
pupniki disagree that it's good.  i think it's bad.12:21
L0cutusthanks, i'll try12:21
czrpupnik, being cancer doesn't mean it wasn't designed. the current specs are quite bloated, javascript, flash and whatnot. but it doesn't mean that pdf wasn't designed12:21
TPCL0cutus, if its 30mb then it probably have lots of images12:21
L0cutusit is a rails book12:21
czrthe 1.0-1.2 were still pretty good versions. although 1.2 started getting a lot of complex operators and implementing them correctly is difficult.12:21
czrwhat still gets me is pdfs total lack of unicode support.12:22
czrit's just crazy what must be done in order to embed a ttf which uses unidode codepoints (more than 256 of them at once)12:22
TPCsure, it would be better if everyone switched to LaTeX12:22

czrhmm. didn't it ask you for a lock code when you did the "device lock"?12:26
sebu_czr, i had changed to code many months ago, i never itended so use the lock so i didn't remember the code :/12:26
czrnot sure whether reflashing will erase the lock12:26
sebu_czr, nope, that's the problem12:26
czrI see.12:26
X-Fade_sebu_: You can try to flash the old OS2006 image. I remember that there was a but in it that cleared the code..12:27
infobotX-Fade_ meant: sebu_: You can try to flash the old OS2006 image. I remember that there was a bug in it that cleared the code..12:27
sebu_czr, according to wiki flashing does not reset the lock (they say some old firmware updates reset it, but i don't know which...12:27
sebu_X-Fade_, is there only one OS2006 image around?12:27
X-Fade_And did you try that?12:27
sebu_X-Fade_, i didn't try firmware updates yet for one reason: i have ssh access to the device, so i "hacked" it by replacing some binaries which block bootup / ask for the pin with dummy shell scripts :) so i can use the IT, but as soon as i reflash (and i want OS2008!) the device will be locked again12:29

_berto_it doesn't matter, you asked who would want to write in java15:29
_berto_I answered15:29
alteregomilhouse, we know it's not Suns' VM why don't you just drop it. It's Java :P15:30
milhousejava system -> java bytecode15:30
Jaffamilhouse: the Java class library's a pretty strong incentive. As is the fact that any language which compiles to bytecode (JRuby, Groovy, Jython) can also be used and then compiled to their custom bytecode.15:30
alteregoJaffa, that's something I'm quite interested in ;) Though I think I prefer xruby.15:30
milhousejaffa - sure, just thought I'd make the point it's not a fully fledged java "system" as most people might understand it...15:31
Khertan"Java will run better in android than python in maemo" ... Your re kidding ?15:31
Jaffamilhouse: indeed.15:31
JaffaKhertan: I'd put money on it. A lot of money on it.15:31
JaffaPython on Maemo takes too long to start up, for one.15:32
alteregoWhat's "better"?15:32
gla55_it's not java bytecode in android15:32
KhertanStartup and after ...15:32
KhertanHave you try a jvm on an arm ? It s really slow15:32
alteregoI guess they can't take advantage of ARM Java acceleration ..15:32
KhertanSpecially in gui15:33
gla55_no use arguing about it before they bring devices15:33
alteregoI think that's based more on opinion.15:33
felipec"better" as in "apparently better from the user's perspective" as in more responsive and faster15:33
gla55_can't know how fast they are15:33
milhousealtergo: more NDA crapness regarding Jazelle, this time from ARM... :(15:33
JaffaKhertan: a) it isn't interpreting Java bytecode; b) given their system is based around Java, they'd be nuts to have it as slow as Python on Maemo. If every app on Maemo was written in Python, the interpreter load time problem would be fixed fairly quickly.15:34
suihkulokkiso all of you guys are ready to give up r00t for a java-incompatible java-like vm ?15:34
alteregoAre you sure it's the interpreter load time?15:34

alteregosuihkulokki, not me. I don't like that idea at all.15:34

gla55_what matters is what kind of devices it will come out on and whats allowed on those devices..15:35
Jaffagla55_: a good point, but Google's ploughing money into it, so it's worth watching.15:35
Jaffagla55_: exactly.15:35
gla55_jaffa: yeah worth watching like the other linux for mobile phones alliances15:35

gla55_jaffa: and it's fast enough to switch deving for it if they get enough marketshare that they matter15:35
Jaffagla55_: worth watching slightly more because of Google, but not much more - I grant you.15:35
Jaffagla55_: agreed.15:36
felipecindeed, and I bet Google can put some millions here and there to make an efficient Java VM, but I agree, only when the devices are out we will see15:36
alteregoI doubt they'll be short of devs ..15:36
vegailua would make more sense than python anyway. It's meant for small devices more than python.15:36
alteregoThey've done some impressive stuff already. Why don't we see if we can make Maemo more competitive.15:36
*** krau has joined #maemo15:36
JaffaOut of all the Linux for mobile initiatives, I reckon Google's got the best chance, since they like tooling and they've got the brand and wallets. Maemo/UME are fine for tablet-style devices; I'll be surprised if OpenMoko's anything more than a niche running on just their phones15:37
alteregoAnd we have great hardware now ..15:37
gla55_well, if they're really as open as they say, port the androids vm thing to maemo.. that runs their fancy bytecode15:37

*** lardman has joined #maemo15:40
jottto make use of it?!15:40
alteregoAnd why doesn't someone dev some OSS drivers :P15:40
JaffaI think the hardware's pretty fab. But the Eee is now undercutting the tablet and is more functional; the iPhone's raised the software game. OS2008 and the N810 look good, and I'm sure *I*'ll enjoy them; but larger market => more devs => more apps => more useful.15:40
jottalterego: oss drivers would be even better, thats for sure ;)15:40
Jaffaalterego: If we haven't yet got 3D OSS drivers for NVIDIA cards, why on earth would we have them for some niche little TI chip?15:41
JaffaNot many Linux hackers working on OMAP, compared with nouveau15:41

alteregoThere are OSS nVidia drivers ..15:41
gla55_i don't really care if it would be oss drivers or not15:41
gla55_just that nokia would make it happen15:41
Jaffaalterego: They just do 2D on a limited subset of cards. There's very little 3D support beyond *sometimes* running glgears15:41
alteregoIf I knew how to develop PowerVR drivers for the OMAP I would.15:42
wumpusJaffa: at least people are working on them15:42

alteregoBut I don't so I'm not going to :)15:42
Jaffawumpus: indeed.15:42
alteregoX-Fade, the drivers are free but they don't work with Maemo binaries.15:42

alteregoAnyhow, I need a shower.15:43
wumpusX-Fade: it's not for the right architecture afaik15:43
lardmanis it possible to use kernel drivers from a different version kernel?15:43
JaffaIt's going to be easier to decompile them, and reassemble them than it is to write OSS drivers from scratch.15:43
lardmanah, ok15:43
alteregoJaffa, yeah. That thought crossed my mind several times ..15:43
X-Fadevermagic: preempt ARMv5 gcc-3.415:44
wumpuswell if it's only for one graphics chip, writing drivers isn't that teriibly hard, the hard part of nouveau and other open source drivers is having to supports zillions of cards15:44
*** alex-weej has joined #maemo15:45
Jaffawumpus: that's true15:45
jottand the drivers would only need to support the opengl es subset ;)15:45
X-FadeMy guess is that the powervr is seriously underpowerd for our screensize. And maybe has the same bus issues as movies have?15:45
wumpusbut you'd still need to know what commands to send to the chip.. or even where to send the commands at all15:45
wumpusyes, it has the same bus issues15:45
wumpusit'd only speed up rendering to a memory buffer, not sending it through the slow pipe to the LCD15:46
X-FadeAnd is designed for 320x240 orso :)15:46
JaffaI've not looked at the architecture diagram recently, but the problem with the video bandwidth is getting frames from the CPU to the LCD controller. That problem would exist whether the ARM core's doing it or the PowerVR bit of the chip15:46
Jaffa...i.e. what wumpus said15:46

wumpusthere should be an option somewhere for linux to ignore the version info, but haven't found it15:52
wumpusyep, very big, that kind of makes reverse engineering out of the question too15:53
lardmanI was thinking of creating a gpe-image with the correct kernel version, etc. to see if it would work15:53
pc_speakerI hope everyone already flahed os2008 to their n800? :)15:53
lardmanRight, in terms of fillrate, the powervr mbx should manage ~975fps15:53
wumpusit's bigger than the nvidia driver for x86, it probably includes an entire opengl implementation... maybe this 'powervr' is a few instructions to speed up 3d, like 3dnow, and not a real hardware renderer15:54
lardmanit is real hw,
gla55_it's more than just instructions thats for sure15:55
lardmanbut yes, most of the opengl stuff may be in that module15:55
gla55_you can see the hw in action in n95 and e9015:55

gla55_some stuff like that15:55

jottbut why the hell one packages an exe with zip and this exe is just an installer that has another zip in it!?16:11
wumpusdepends on where you live16:11
jottlardman: here it is legal to ensure interoperability (ianal)16:12
wumpusI don't think it's a good idea to talk about it in public16:12
lardmanJust wondering in general terms16:12
wumpusintercepting rendering commands to the hardware is legal though, so that's usually how os drivers are developed, not by disassembly16:13
X-Fadelardman: Just do a clean reimplementation.. reverse engineer and write a description. Someone else needs to write a driver based on the description.16:13
jottbut in the end its a matter of jurisdiction..16:13
lardmanX-Fade: Is that legal though? For the person who does the reverse engineering?16:13
X-FadeWell, 'just' ;)16:13
X-Fadelardman: As long as that is legal in your country..16:13
lardmanwumpus: yes, intercepting the commands would be reasonable16:14
lardmanlol, round in circles16:14
X-Fadelardman: Everone not in the US, should be a lot more safe..16:14
wumpusanyway, if you do use disassembly, don't tell anyone16:14
lardmanwumpus: in which case I wonder if the kernel driver could be wrapped and the wrapper used to link in, no problems with kernel version then16:15
X-FadeBut if they wrote an opensource driver, that is a lot easier ;)16:15

*** Cwiiis has joined #maemo16:15

*** pcspeaker has joined #maemo16:16
jottand if we had a working driver many people would be more or less satisfied ;)16:17
wumpusthe most trivial brute force way to find out is overriding the version info in the 2.6.10 release, then see where loading goes wrong16:17
wumpusunless the abi and  not the name of some kernel call changed and it just crashes, but yeah16:18
wumpusyou'd have to dump which kernel symbols it uses and which ones changed between that kernel and the current16:18
wumpusluckily, the kernel IS open source :P16:19

lardmaneven if it shouldn't work, as the N800 is 2/3 the speed of the axim and could offload music playing to the dsp, it would be worth a shot17:24

johnxWRT, the XScale vs OMAP debate, it seems like the 320MHz CPU in the N800 is much faster than the 416MHz XScale PXA27017:39
revyeah, i can see that17:39
johnxI'm not sure but I thought I remember hearing that it had something to do with Intel just lengthening the pipeline to boost the clock speed17:40

revalso, my numbers were a little foofy, went and looked at them, and the 2-4x was for the 220 MHz 770 vs my 624 MHz Axim, not for the newer OMAP in the N80017:40
lardmanthere were some nbench figures on the openmoko list17:40
lardmanI added the 770 and n800 (@330MHz)17:41

lardmanvfp kicks ass, big time17:42
revdoes it require linking to some lib and use of its api to use it?17:43
lardmanthe n800 results are with a statically compiled libm using vfp, the normal one doesn't use it17:43
* sciboy whistles as he waits for the firmware to download, and checks the progress of his blender render.17:43
revnot to say that you wouldn't do that for porting q3, but just curious if it uses it by default in the base math libs17:43
lardmanrev: e.g.
lardmanmaemo isn't compiled with it enabled though, hence needing to statically link against a vfp libm17:44
lardmanrev: so you need CFLAGS=CXXFLAG=-mfpu=vfp -mfloat-abi=softfp17:45

lardmanwhat are you compiling?20:56
