shackanpeople, nokia acquired trolltech, comments?00:47
GeneralAntillesSee ITT00:48
zerojayHopefully we can get rid of GTK finally.00:48
GeneralAntillesSomehow I doubt it. ;)00:48
zerojayWebkit comes built into QT 4.1 also.00:48
zerojayWould make a web browser easy and much less resource intensive.00:49
Takugh - if qt were the only option, I'd stop developing00:49
zerojayThat's too bad because GTK's really horrible... and I also don't like developing when every minor version is a major binary break.00:49
shackanGeneralAntilles: are there "official" positions or ITT ?00:49
zerojayNothing's stable.00:49
GeneralAntillesNo, but there aren't any here, either.00:50
zerojayI can say authoritatively that my position is my OFFICIAL position. :)00:50
GeneralAntilleszerojay, GTK vs Qt seems to be a nicely polarized debate.00:50
*** doc|home has joined #maemo00:50
shackanit's an endless, pointless debate, really00:51
zerojayGeneralAntilles: It is, but only among those that think that QT is still proprietary or haven't touched it.00:51
GeneralAntillesDoesn't seem that way to me.00:51
zerojayAs a programmer, it makes your life so much easier.00:51
zerojayThe only real downside is that it's mainly C++... so your code will take longer to build, but that's not too big a deal.00:52
*** massoud has quit IRC00:52
zerojayYou don't have to worry about major technology changes coming out of the blue.00:52
*** Licorn has left #maemo00:53
zerojayGTK seems to change major portions every other release.00:53
*** jeff1f has joined #maemo00:53
zerojayA month after a GTK release and suddenly the next version comes out and everything's broken all over again and you have to run around and fix it again...00:54
zerojayYou just lose soo much time on that crap.00:54
fysaI don't know, I've seen it on both sides of the fence.00:55
*** cmarcelo has quit IRC00:55
*** sp3000 has quit IRC00:55
fysaWe need a universal GUI standard that Gtk and Qt can both 'interpret' :)00:55
zerojayI got tired of the whole dance... every month or so "here's a new library to do what you did before with this other library"... and then the month afterwards it gets completely scrapped yet again for something else.00:55
*** vcgomes has quit IRC00:56
*** megabyte405 has joined #maemo00:57
zerojayWhat we saw when we went from 2007 to 2008 and everything was incompatible?00:57
pupnikcompetition does also have benefits00:57
zerojayThat's nothing.00:57
zerojayJust wait.00:57
zerojayAnd you can bet your bottom dollar that it will end up happening to us again with 2009.00:57
zerojayNot through any fault of Nokia's either.00:57
zerojayBecause it's the same thing that's been happening with GNOME over and over and over again.00:58
fysapupnik: you ever tried that esd patch for snes9x?  I have the alsa-oss deb built but have not tested it on my device yet.00:58
unique311   qt coverflow alternative..00:58
fysathe linux desktop is in perpetual infancy.00:59
unique311even i got it to do fullscreen and mapped a key.00:59
unique311i vote for the QT00:59
GeneralAntillesWhat's keeping us from having it both ways?00:59
pupnik  maybe that  would help fysa00:59
GeneralAntillesQt and GTK can live together on the same system, right?00:59
*** Disconnect has quit IRC00:59
*** Disconnect has joined #maemo00:59
zerojayThough on the tablets, it makes no sense.00:59
VeggenGA: but on limited-resources-devices like these, you *really* want to avoid using them at the same time per default.01:00
pupnikthat pictureflow looks really good01:01
VeggenGA: limited the amount of shared libraries needed to be loaded simultaneously is a priority.01:01
fysaour environment is already on the edge of too heavy.01:01
unique311slow right now.01:01
*** atlas95 has quit IRC01:02
fysabut it will be cheaper for nokia to just gve us a 600MHz device with 256MB RAM ;)01:02
* GeneralAntilles likes that idea.01:02
pupnikkde is too slow pn my p3 950mhz01:02
glassgive it 12 months01:02
unique311600, why not 1Ghz01:02
GeneralAntillesI'd take a mm or two of thickness for better battery life/performance, too.01:02
GeneralAntillesunique311, battery life.01:02
*** matt_c has quit IRC01:02
glassthen one could even make an educated guess what nokia is really going to do with tt01:02
unique311make it a little chunkt01:03
glasswider device range would be good01:03
glassfor maemo01:03
GeneralAntillesI'd take a largish keyboardless model with lots of internal storage myself. ;)01:03
GeneralAntilles+reasonable gaming controls.01:04
fysaI want thinner, wider and same height01:04
unique311so with diablo and then the following os...anyone think QT4 will make an official appearance on the device01:04
glassGeneralAntilles: i'd take that too01:04
fysaunfortunately it looks like we may be stuck at this resolution for some time01:04
GeneralAntillesSize reduction from the N800 really doesn't appeal to me at all.01:04
glassunique311: i don't think qt will make an appearance in a year on anything nokia01:05
fysait's not a horrible resolution01:05
*** sbaturzio has quit IRC01:05
GeneralAntillesfysa, with Mylo 2's insane dpi, I wonder if Nokia might consider pushing it up to 1024xwhatever.01:05
fysabut I would like to see the same ppi/dpi but with another 200 of width01:05
glassi'd like there to be good fast scaler in hw too01:06
glassto go along with emus and those gaming controls i'd wish01:06
fysabetter get back to work before I enter dreamland for good ;)01:06
jeff1fThe screen on the Sony UX is a great size and res01:06
kupesoftI got aircrack working with a usb dongle ;p01:07
kupesofton an n80001:07
pupnikwhat chipset01:07
blahdeblahDoes anyone know whose cage i can rattle to get fixed?  This inability to download anything in maemo extras is starting to get on my nerves!01:07
|tbb|kupesoft, with usb powered hub?01:07
GeneralAntilles6.5" diagonal I believ, fysa.01:07
johnxtoo bad the rest of the sony ux is a brick01:08
pupnikan 'old person' tablet with less dpi would be good too01:08
johnxproper font scaling would be nice01:08
GeneralAntillesold people. . . .01:08
fysaI would like a device with a screen that goes to the edge, then you can buy four and stack them for a larger screen ;)01:08
GeneralAntillespupnik, that's a bad idea.01:08
GeneralAntillesBetter to just have a little resolution independence. ;)01:08
johnxthe problem is that every program assumes it's running on a 96dpi screen and the GUI layout isn't flexible enough01:09
fysacarry one in each pocket01:09
*** kenne has quit IRC01:09
GeneralAntillesPut them together and you turn into Darth Maul, fysa? :P01:09
GeneralAntillesI'd like to see the N810 branch off into an E-series sort of deal—keyboard, low storage, small01:11
GeneralAntilleswhile the N800 stays with the N-series as keyboardless (maybe), lots of storage, and larger.01:12
*** Blain has quit IRC01:13
johnxbut where does that leave the clamshell/tablet styled Nxxx that I want? :P01:15
kupesoft|tbb|: Yup01:15
kupesoftpupnik: rt7301:15
kupesoftpupnik: But the aircrack-ng tools are sluggish,01:15
kupesoftto be expected, though01:15
*** blahdeblah has quit IRC01:17
*** blahdeblah has joined #maemo01:17
GeneralAntillesMaybe the E would make a good clamshell.01:17
GeneralAntillesA N-Gage branded model could be interesting.01:17
* Cymor is back (gone 23:44:04)01:18
GeneralAntillesThough that comes with a lot of baggage.01:18
fysawe're still the bastard children for another generation I fear.01:18
johnxheh...I don't know if anything with that naming could ever sell01:18
johnxunless they do a "side talking is cool" campaign or something01:18
*** pH5 has quit IRC01:18
lardman|afknight all01:18
GeneralAntillesI'm afeared of the ITs losing too much of their hacker-appeal in the trip to consumer-appeal.01:19
*** lardman|afk has quit IRC01:19
johnxGeneralAntilles, I'm not.01:19
*** alex-weej_ has quit IRC01:19
johnxAs long as they run Linux and are "hackable" (ie are mostly open source, come with an x server) I think the Linux-heads will still be interested01:19
*** captainigloo has quit IRC01:20
johnxIn fact, except for the annoying closed source bits I'm pretty happy with the way that Nokia has handled the N8x0 as an overall platform01:21
GeneralAntillesSomebody should put together an Open Letter about those bits.01:21
johnxthat might be good...but I don't think it will change anything01:22
fysaI don't think Nokia is going to listen until these devices come out of the backwater and show up as meaningful numbers on their balance sheet.01:22
|tbb|is it know how much battery you will save while running your it in offline mode instead of normal idle mode (not connected and not auto search for wlan)01:22
*** djcb has quit IRC01:25
GeneralAntillesVery little if there's nothing trying to use Bluetooth or Wifi.01:25
*** tbf has joined #maemo01:25
* GeneralAntilles wants a working soft poweroff mode back.01:26
fysaI was able to install Powerlaunch..01:26
tbfhmm.... no trolltech faq link in /topic?01:26
fysaand I believe it added soft poweroff to my power menu01:26
fysabut I have no idea how to configure anything else for it yet ;001:26
GeneralAntillestbf, is it really relevant to the GTK-based maemo. ;)01:26
GeneralAntillesDoes it get around the brokenness of soft poweroff, though?01:27
tbfGeneralAntilles: considering nokia's bochum actions? HELL, YES!01:28
*** mk8 has quit IRC01:28
fysaWhat am I looking for?01:28
fysa(or for it not to do, rather)01:28
*** Cptnodegard has quit IRC01:28
GeneralAntillesWake up with touchscreen input.01:29
fysaYou do want it to wake up?01:29
fysa'Soft poweroff' -> screen instantly goes black01:29
GeneralAntilles. . . and, more seriously, do you think anybody has actually had time/information enough to compile an FAQ about it when it was only announced today?01:29
GeneralAntillesNo, fysa.01:29
fysathen I have to touch power to go back on01:29
GeneralAntillesNokia's broken implementation just blanks the screen and breaks some stuff.01:29
GeneralAntillesThen wakes up with touchscreen input when it shouldn't.01:30
GeneralAntillesAh, right, it's working then.01:30
fysamy only complaint is that the power menu is still there when I wake it up ;)01:30
fysabut that's because I'm hitting the power button to wake it back up..01:30
GeneralAntillesCan you hold the power button to activate it?01:30
fysajust a tap activates01:30
fysa(on the power button)01:30
fysasorry, not screen tap ;)01:31
GeneralAntilleser, sorry, to activate soft poweroff.01:31
GeneralAntillesRather than wake from it.01:31
tbfGeneralAntilles: well, it's known for over 12 hours know. i would have thought, i am late with asking what that acquisition means for gtk based maemo01:31
fysaholding down power, screen goes blank after 2 seconds..01:31
fysathen wakes up as soon as I let go ;)01:31
pupnikdid you look into the libesddsp thing fysa ?01:31

lcuki still cant get a stable linux ide sorted, but by weekend i will have a jedi robe01:44
glasslinux apps arent bad usually01:45
lcukno, but the ide i have set my heart on needs a version which is source only for the maemo addin to work01:45
*** vandenoever has quit IRC01:45
*** ken_ has joined #maemo01:46
lcukso now im fighting with the stuff ki want the ide to handle so i can build the ide i want01:46
johnxlcuk, which IDE did you decide on?01:46
lcukanjuta for now at least01:46
*** lcuk_2 has joined #maemo01:47
lcuk_2there is a maemo project builder and the interface is based on the same gtk code editor and it feels much more like an ide than a jungle (eclipse..)01:48
lcuk_2iso now i am fighting to get it compiled and running with the version that the maemo addin requires and i have figured the ./configure bit and managed the make bit and did the install bit but had a few (i thought minor) files missing and now it wont run01:49
*** rev has joined #maemo01:49
lcuk_2sbut its progress, at least its stuff i have compiled that isnt running01:49
pupnikholy ffff01:50
pupnikit's not the n810 speakers that are distorted!01:50
lcuk_2so once i am done being sidetracked by a fancy dress custome nightmare i will be doing it all properly, ill let the linux compiling notes sink in for a couple of days01:50
johnxlcuk_2, you're using ubuntu under vmware, right?01:50
lcuk_2810 speakers are really nice01:50
pupnikrunning /etc/init.d/esd restart with new esd gives perfectly clear sound!01:50
lcuk_2i like the sound coming out of them01:50
*** rev` has joined #maemo01:51
GeneralAntillespupnik, now that IS interesting.01:51
pupnikyeah but there is some kind of bug01:51

*** rev has quit IRC01:51

lcuk_2i searched the computer01:53
*** |tbb| has quit IRC01:53
johnxlooks like they're on the anjuta site unless I'm confused01:54
johnxfrom the downloads page:
johnxlook for "apt repo" on the page01:54
johnxthe trick to being a linux jedi is knowing when to follow the other guy who already has his light saber put together...01:55
*** maszo has quit IRC01:55
lcuk_2i thought i had, and i tried adding that as a source, but on the software packages thing in vmware the style of the repo looked different so i added the one below it which included universe01:55
lcuk_2i did this one:01:55
lcuk_2Ubuntu gusty repository01:55
lcuk_2   1. Add deb gutsy universe in your /etc/apt/sources.list01:55
lcuk_2no other sources looked the same :'(01:56
lcuk_2i could hug you john01:56
lcuk_2thank you :)01:56
johnxtest it before you do something so rash...heh01:56
johnxgutsy is probably the right version01:57
pupnikGeneralAntilles: media player is distorted, mplayer is distorted01:57
lcuk_2i did that and refreshed my sources and tried to get it but it just reinstalled 2.201:57
lcuk_2ill just grab the deb (after i have kicked myself)01:57
lcuk_2no john, not your method01:57
johnxwell...ubuntu will warn you about dependency stuff so it's worth a shot01:58
lcuk_2i meant how i went wrong01:58
*** korpios has quit IRC01:58
johnxI know but the one I pointed you at is for feisty (7.04) not gutsy (7.10)01:58
johnxyou're probably on 7.1001:58
johnxas long as the dependencies resolve you're probably ok01:58
lcuk_2but its a damn .deb file. john, you have overtaken even the mighty google this evening01:59
lcuk_2i am going to johnx everything from now on ;)01:59
johnxI just know more of what I'm looking for (and also I stumbled into the *wrong* repo)02:00
johnxalso, looks like other people are having issues building anjuta as well02:00
johnx"IDE, compile thyself!"02:00
lcuk_2i know that, i managed to sort out a whole lot of problems before hand, but its been good in a way02:01
lcuk_2i had impotus to actually do something and needed to get it done02:01
lcuk_2theres no point in staying blind forever02:01
johnxjust be thankful this isn't 10 years ago :)02:01
*** tbf has quit IRC02:02
lcuk_210 years ago, the only difference was that you read "complin~1.txt" from some floppy disk you got from the guy down the road02:02
*** pdz has joined #maemo02:03
lcuk_2it is all build from very small blocks but damn they are hidden away for most other dev environments02:03
johnxno, 10 years ago was "Want the latest GNOME 0.54? Then follow these simple steps to compile each package by hand, because no one will package it for your distro in the next 6 months"02:03
johnxI meant 10 years ago in Linux-land02:04
johnxLinux today is positively user-friendly02:04
lcuk_2yes for the end-end user,m but i had to dive in and understand what to do to get it working02:04
lcuk_2if this had been a paper version it would have notes all over it now:
lcuk_2i kept flipping back and forward to it, it was actually quite a nice simple start and helped explain a lot02:05
pupniko... m... g.. the speakers sound so good02:05
johnxyeah, fair enough. gcc hasn't gotten any simpler to use02:06
lcuk_2was "just enough" to get me on the road02:06
lcuk_2pup, mine have sounded good from day 1, whats been wrong with them02:06
pupnikhorribly distorted when playing system sounds and mp3s and movies02:07
pupnikvery quiet and *very* distorted02:07
pupnikfrom the factory02:07
lcuk_2ooer, and what did you change (ill do a taste test)02:07
pupnikbut the esd demon i just built ... when i restart it, it's perfectly clear and painfully loud02:07
lcuk_2the only sound problem i have had is that the headphones are almost silent in one ear unless i press the mic/remote button02:08
*** leandroal has joined #maemo02:08
lcuk_2how do i find out which version of linux is on the desktop?02:10

johnxah xubuntu02:11
*** zoran has quit IRC02:12
lcuk_2cant i open the about applet from the command line (does it still exist)02:12
leandroalhi there. How can I change the wireless access point via programming code in maemo platform? I have the following code ( that works perfectly in my laptop, but when use in maemo, the wlan0 interface disconnect but not connect to the new ESSID. Any clue?02:12
johnxthat applet was a gnome thing...02:12

pupnikmuch louder and *clearer*02:17
pupnikimagine hooking a telephone receiver up to a stereo amplifier02:17
fysaless tin/real bass?02:17
GeneralAntillesSame effect for the N800?02:18
pupniki'm going to record an example of this02:19
fysamy debian/rules or lintian-overrides must not be setup right or something.  my alsa-oss deb installs but it's as if the "make install" doesn't run.02:21

Doni^tablet. :D02:40
Doni^i lolled.02:40
Doni^damn. i myst be tired.02:40
Doni^must even. and my connection lags here. sorry for the typos.02:40
lcuk_2:D heh, so you have table lags02:40
GeneralAntillesNo, Doni^.02:41
Doni^hmm. it's just weird with the darn n810. bt+3g works well until i idle for a while. after that the keyboard stops working. and usually within 15 secs or so the thing reboots.02:41
lcuk_2i can typo with the bes tof them simple solution: dont idle02:42
zerojayYou're tripping the watchdog somehow.02:42
lcuk_2damn - forgot to delete02:42

Doni^zerojay: i'm thinking that too. however no clue how to troubleshoot.02:44
Doni^seems that i don't get the same problem using wlan.02:44
GeneralAntillesHave you installed something?02:45
Doni^been doing extensive testing the whole evening. no problems with wlan, had 3 reboots in ~20 minutes using bt.02:45
Doni^yes. that's why i'm thinking to reflash and try with a fresh installation.02:45
lcuk_2did it used to work (or appear to) or have you just started using the bt 3g side of things02:46
Doni^well i have had this thing now for 5 days of which i've been playing around for about three.02:47
Doni^noticed the problem yesterday when i was trying to use it more where i don't have a wlan.02:47
*** lcuk has quit IRC02:49
Doni^googling seems to be tricky.02:51

Robot101that was just a bad data file... my fault... it was just causing reboots outright, nothing to do with any bluetooth02:57
Robot101was trying to get the IRC backend to not use the address book so it would go a lot faster02:57
johnxDoni^, there's a gateway on that you connect to via jabber (default, builtin) and then it connects to AIM/MSN/Yahoo/etc for you02:59

zerojayWe don't have a web server running on .org.03:03

zerojayJabber = .org03:04

johnxalright, I'll be more specific in the future...03:05

timelyxthere's no channel dedicated to n800 owners07:57
timelyxwe don't reject people w/ 770s or n810s07:57
timelyxyou're free to ask questions, although it'd be a good idea for you to search the channel logs first07:58
timelyxand it might make sense to search ITT too07:58
*** Raistl|n has quit IRC08:00
thefoolVictBC43: though I see no reason why your question should be n800 specific. The compatability is at a software level...08:00
pupnik /lastlog mknod08:00
VictBC43well I have just spent several hours with google trying to find out what is a good BT GPS unit to use with the n800.. I am still waiting for my n800 to arrive (ordered it last Friday) so really don't know much about the navigation capabilities that maemo mapper has other than what I have read about on the web in various forums etc08:01
Luriai like my iblue 75708:01
johnxI don't have a BT GPS, but from what I hear: get something with a "SiRF Star III" chipset08:02
Luriabut it is buggy with usb only connections (when BT isnt up); i dont know if thats been fixed08:02
VictBC43I decided to pick up an n800 because I finely decided I needed an upgrade from my Sharp Zaurus, I unfortunately there is not much support for anymore.. even in the opensource community :(  Anyway, I liked the n800 because it runs linux :)08:02
Luriasirf III is good08:03
Luriamtk32 or sirf IIIc is better08:03
Luriawhich zaurus?08:03
johnxalso, see if you can find a thread on about GPS stuff that would be a good resource for "works, doesn't work" kind of info08:03
johnxheh...lots of Zaurus users getting N8x0s08:04
Luriamy mtk32 works fairly well in nyc08:04
VictBC43I was looking and ordered an Holux GBslim 236 online on the weekend.. but upon further study it seems many people have been experiencing problems with the BT portion failing after a while.. :(  So I may just send it right back without even opening it.  I have read many good reviews on the I-737.. and not been able to find any major complaints about it so far..08:05
Luriaso does my sirf 3, but power reqs are higher, unless you can find IIIc which i hear is better08:05
derfI'm impresed my MTK gets a lock in the city, but it's got some serious multipath problems.08:05
Luriaits not multipath thats the problem, its warmup aquistion.08:06
VictBC43Oh.. I have a SL-5500 zaurus with openzaurus and opie running on it :)08:06
Luriai find my holux better than the iblue in that respect08:06
derfIt seems to work okay so long as it's not moving.08:06
Luriaex 5600 user here.08:06
VictBC43they were such great devices.. but alas.. I think there time has come.. and gone :(08:07
johnxhave a 5500 (stored until 2.6 gets better), a C1000 (still in use) and an N80008:07
VictBC43anyway.. back to the topic at hand :)08:07

johnxoh noes :( my 5500 is plenty beaten up but most of it still works.08:09
*** pupnik_ has joined #maemo08:09
johnxanyways, let me see if I can dig up the BT GPS my friend uses with his N80008:09
Luriajohnx, on a 5600? i thought sdhc was controller dependant?08:09
LuriaVictBC43, did you see the 757?08:10
VictBC43I looked at the n810.. but thought that the two SD memory slots were more important than then built in GPS and slideout keyboard.. besides I have heard the built in GPS chip is not the greatest.. so I thought I can get an external BT GPS with the n800 and place it the optimal position on the dash for reception while still having the n800 closer to me so I can see the screen better08:10
GeneralAntillesGood plan.08:10
johnxLuria, C1000...I have no idea how they made it work O_o08:10
johnxVictBC43, yeah. and the N800 is such a deal right now08:11
Luriaif they released a shiba model, i would have had to buy another zaurus :-)08:11
VictBC43is that the i-blue that data logging or some such thing built in.. ?08:11
* Luria has one of those (shiba inus) too08:11
Luriayes, and the solar panel08:12
VictBC43And apparently the speakers in the front of n800 are a little better than the ones they put in the n81008:12
VictBC43or so the various reviews I have read have pointed out :)08:12
Luriathats scary, cause the n800 speakers blow. or rather, they dont, enough08:12
GeneralAntillesN800 speakers are great for their size.08:13

GeneralAntillesLoudspeaker quality, evidently.08:13
*** Zic has joined #maemo08:13

GeneralAntillesInternet tablet. :P08:15
johnxVictBC43, the only thing I really miss (having an N800 instead of an N810) is the transflective screen and the keyboard08:16

VictBC43well you can also run ssh, xterm, etc etc or so I read08:16
johnxand some crazy guys are working on Debian08:16

Luriatho i find im using my eee more and more and my n800 less and less08:16
GeneralAntillesEee doesn't make any sense for my usage.08:18
GeneralAntillesIf it's not pocketable, it's kinda pointless.08:18
VictBC43I no one has tried getting a mini version of x-windows running on one.. or is that what the interface is using in the OS already?  It would be cool to ssh to my linux box at home and have an app served to the n80008:18

johnxthat and bluetooth foldable keyboards are both great ... until you want to type standing up or sitting on a crowded train, or on a bus/in a car, etc, etc08:28
VictBC43no.. I have not.. just read the reviews.. the zaurus had a thumb board built in08:29
GeneralAntillesThen you have the fullscreen keyboard!08:29

johnxGeneralAntilles, which bugs are you thinking of specifically?08:29
GeneralAntillesThe broken return key08:29
GeneralAntillesBroken tap placement08:30
GeneralAntillesBroken activation08:30
VictBC43I have used a fold out portable keyboard for the Palm Pilot I has.. it was IR and was ok.. but had to make sure it was positioned correctly so they could see each other..08:30
VictBC43has = had08:31
johnxVictBC43, bluetooth a very nice step up in that regard08:31
GeneralAntillesI'd get yourself an iGo keyboard asap VictBC43.08:31
johnxGeneralAntilles, I thought (2) was something to do with the touchscreen?08:31
GeneralAntillesNo, johnx.08:31
GeneralAntillesMaybe for some people08:31
GeneralAntillesBut it's a new bug with OS2008 final.08:31
VictBC43So.. back to GPS.. has anyone here seen or owned a Holux brand GPS?08:31

VictBC43Hmm well it looks like I can get a i-blue 737 for 59.00 cdn.. I have a Holux GPSlim 236 on order.. but as I said.. it would seem from reading about them that there is a good chance the BT circuit with fail after a short while.. but it does have the SiRF Star III chipset ...08:52
VictBC43yes.. I would be using it exclusively with the n800.. at least in the foreseeable future08:53

wndjohnx, are you thinking of intel's powertop for tickless kernel?12:06
johnxnot a sirf at all, it's the GPS5300 from TI12:06

wndnevermind :-)12:06
_collin_there was this story on planet-maemo ...12:06
Tama^2whatever it is, it;s not a hogging the cpu, just keeping the unit busy enough to prevent it from entering a better powersave mode12:06
johnxwnd, actually I tried powertop under debian on N800 and it didn't have enough of the hooks in the kernel that powertop needed to work12:07
johnxall it would tell me was the percent of time that the CPU was spending at a certain clockspeed12:08
bmidgleyjohnx yeah I thought I had read sirf-iii in a specsheet but can't find anything now12:08
johnxwhich is somewhat irrelevant in the case of the tablet12:08
johnxbmidgley, it's the GPS5300, same as an N9512:08
johnxbut without being able to do that celluar AGPS thing like the N95 does12:08
johnxGPS5300 is TI's "lowest cost" chipset apparently12:09
bmidgleyis it low power too or just cheaper12:09
* johnx shrugs12:09
bmidgleytoo bad... it performs about as well as my old sirf-ii gps12:10
johnxsomeone ran tests. Apparently the sirf-ii is a little better12:10
johnxyeah, for N810 owners. Makes me feel better about getting my N800 when I did though12:12
johnxbmidgley, oh, if you're interested in hearing about A2DP performance with the N800 booted into Debian: 75% constant CPU usage @ 400MHz ... but no skipping until I put further load on it. Period size gets set correctly, too12:13

lardmanwhich supports AGPS13:00
lardmanthe question is, can we enable this somehow?13:00
*** felipec has joined #maemo13:00
johnxthat could be interesting13:02
lardmanah-ha, there is life :)13:02
johnxundeath at least :)13:02
lardmanI understand there's a daemon called something like gpsdriver, anyone seen this?13:02
johnxsomeone needs to send me an N810 so I can start hacking on it :)13:03
_berto_johnx: try here ->
*** MoRpHeUz has joined #maemo13:04
*** t_s_o has joined #maemo13:05
johnxyeah, I looked at that13:07
lardmanI think that's the right link: gpsdriver is closed source and doesn't tell us what params it takes13:07
lardman p4313:07
johnxif you kill off GPSD and accept the consequences you can just talk to it through it's UART, right?13:08
lardmannow presumably when the user-side talks to the gps over /dev/ttyS0 (or is it S1?), it's actually talking to the GPS Controller hardware13:08
lardmankilling gpsd perhaps, then you just talk to the serial device, but if the gpsdriver is required to create or mediate the serial device, then it would be good to see what that does13:09
lardmanbut at what level is the agps stuff implemented I wonder13:10
lardmaninterestingly, from that pdf, I see that the gps controller does power managment, which means there may be some clues in the kernel source13:11
johnxon the link to the product page from the first post of that thread it looks like AGPS data is just fed to it via the UART connected to the OMAP13:12
johnx(or at least it can be)13:12
lardmanyes, the question is can that be the same uart as the other control messages are sent over?13:13
lardmanin which case gpsdriver may be able to do something with it13:13
* |tbb| means, before you all hack the gps chip try to write drivers for powervr support ;)13:14
lardmanI was just interested, still thinking about PowerVR don't worry :)13:14
johnx|tbb|, I think the powervr drivers would be a couple more orders of magnitude harder than telling some lies to a GPS chip :)13:14
|tbb|hehe  ;)13:16
lardmanjust makes it a better challenge ;)13:16
lardmanthough I hear that the OMAP gaming SDKs have been removed from the Ti site13:16
lardmananyone seen the gps chip?13:18
lardmanp42 of the pdf indicates that v2 has far more features (and is ~50mm^2 as opposed to ~80mm^2 for v1)13:18

lardmanI should add, that even though we don't have GSM built in (and therefore can't necessarily obtain precise information for our general location)13:29
lardman(though we could use one of the existing location from ip services, I'm not sure how much extra data is needed at that location, or how much processing would be required to calculate it)13:29
lardmanwe can use agps lto - long time orbit, which simply passes information about satellite locations13:30

liribmidgley: uhmm, I wonder if .fbl maps files can be used with maemo-mapper13:38
jkulardman, didn't read the whole log here, but just in case it didn't come up: gpsctrl.h has some functions that let you switch the chip on and off and  to different power levels without using gpsd13:41
*** Savago has joined #maemo13:42
Jaffalardman: priming the AGPS with the iPod Touch's wifi-based triangulation would be very cool13:42
jkuand gpsinternal.h is interesting in the sense that is shows that you can feed the last known position to the chip to speed up init...13:42
jkuof course the actual libs are closed in chinook13:43
*** DaniloCesar has quit IRC13:44
lardmanjku: in the kernel source?13:47
jkuno, gpsmgr probably13:47
lardmanJaffa: triangulation would be useful (assuming we don't need to do lots of calcs to generate data for that location), but just passing ephemeris data, etc. would be good13:49

*** felipec has quit IRC14:04

Doni^jku: no.14:06

jkulardman, yes14:06
Doni^johnx: definitely.14:06
lardmanjku: oh, good14:06
johnxthankfully only part of wifi driver is closed source14:07
jkuDoni^, johnx: I'm guessinmg 30m accuracy is entirely possible in cities14:07
jkuit would require good data on the server though14:07
Doni^jku: yes. basically.14:07
lardmanSo what does one use, what is the fingerprint made up of? Hostip won't work unless you connect to them all14:07
jkuyou mean how toidentify them? MAC address14:08
Doni^yes. i mean the idea is not to connect to the wlans14:08
Doni^you don't need to do that.14:08
johnx(pretty much) globally unique14:08
lardmanDoni^: yep, was wondering whether there were already dbs for MACs14:08
Doni^you would have a database of wlan fingerprints and their geopositions14:08
jkulardman, yes but not free ones14:09
Doni^probably. but i guess not freely available.14:09
jkulardman, see (12million APs)14:09
lardmanWould be easy enough to generate one from other people using the hostip/other ip based location services, just get them to report the MAC id and location abcl14:09
lardmanback even14:09
jkuhostip is useless, would need gps14:10
jkuthat's why n810 would be the right platform...14:10
lardmanbut how accurate do we need to be I wonder for agps?14:10
Doni^yes. you need to collect them with wlan+gps capable device.14:10
Doni^in order to place the wlan's on a map14:11
Doni^and from that map it is possible to calculate the position of the device using wlan only. by some error margin.14:11

* michele checks18:15
lardmanK-Fox: which application?18:15
michele$ type type18:15
micheletype is a shell builtin18:15
JaffaK-Fox: depends on the application. Varies between works out of the box (e.g. shell scripts, Perl, Python) to really quite tricky (Qt apps, Java)18:15
Blafaselmichele: If you just type "type", does it crash for you?18:15
BlafaselIt does for me, at least.18:15
micheleTak: type is similar to which, but it also tells you if something is an alias or what18:16
micheleBlafasel: haven't tried on an IT18:16
lardmanwell we're using ash not bash18:16
Blafaselmichele: Ah.. Well, that's the problem though ;) Crashes for me (and the shell dies..) if it gets no argument18:16

fysapages seem to load faster over-all if you don't bog down the renderer while it's trying to manage all the connections20:14

fysathe default is around 300-1000 as recommended by various mozilla reports/buglist20:15

jottand it's a typical app you may want to run in fs.20:40
