RST38hpupnik: I said that if it exists, usleep() and nanosleep() should make use of it00:57
acydlordany clue why bluetooth dun would work just fine for me in chinook and not at all in diablo?00:58
pupnikah ok i look at them00:58
*** __t has quit IRC00:58
pupnikon the gp2x there's a register you can look at, iirc00:58
RST38hI am sure OMAP has a similar register00:58
RST38hThe only problem is, nobody is gonna tell us which one =(00:59
Jaffalcuk: sounds like "fun" :)01:00
pupnikacydlord: sorry no ideas01:00
*** [A2K] has joined #maemo01:00
[A2K]hi. i'm n00b. please give me the link.01:00
acydlordtime to submit a bug report i guess01:00
RST38hpupnik: Found docs. found timers.01:01
ralann|mbpacydlord: i have used BT in diablo just fine01:01
[A2K]anyone? do you have a link for noobs?01:01
pupnik! :)01:01
lcukjaffa, it wasnt too bad - amsterdam i was stood around, paris i had to run between terminals, but at least i got outside and managed a cig01:02
[A2K]well, ok, then i have some questions.01:02
pupnik                  worked under chinook. Any advice?01:02
lcuk\o pup01:02
pupnikhey there sur01:03
[A2K]how can i install something from here ?01:03
[A2K]i press click to install and just see text in browser01:03
lcuk[A2K], what nokia device have you got01:03
RST38hmust be omap3, not omap2, but I hope timers are the same01:03
[A2K]lcuk: n810 with diablo01:03
lcukare you going to the website with your nokia01:03
lcukor from your home computer01:03
Jaffalcuk: Schipole's a horrible airport, IMHO. Apparently the train from .nl to .de is really interesting - although 5 hours each way will mean lots of time for hacking on my laptop :) 'spose it's not much longer than a flight when you take into account check-ins etc.01:03
[A2K]lcuk: from nokia01:04
zs_i think there is a problem with application installer in os2007 hacker edition, i have tried to install some apps from repo, and it failed because of incompatible package, but when i used dpkg -i everything is ok01:04
RST38hpupnik: 4 private timers. 1 OS timer at 32768Hz. 8 general purpose timers.01:04
lcukjaffa :) sounds like the most relaxing part :) i was doodling the whole way back01:04
pupnikif you go on the ICE Jaffa be sure to reserve a seat at one of the facing-seats with a table and power outlet, and bring an outlet multiplier01:04
lcuk[A2K], not sure, the website might be broken01:05
pupnikgetting power on the ICE requires some planning01:05
RST38hpupnik: you can run any of gp timers off the system clock so it is hires01:05
pupnikRST38h: interestingk01:05
RST38hpupnik: Check
[A2K]is there some manual how to create packages for maemo?01:05
RST38hAnd in general01:06
lcuk[A2K], on the maemo site there are a full set of developer documentation01:06
lcukpart of which is packaging...01:07
* lcuk should read it too01:07
lcukmind you, im trying to read up on svn atm01:07
Jaffapupnik: right, ta for that.01:07
[A2K]why did not enyone still compiled openoffice for maemo?01:07
hellwolfWhen I insert a 4G SDHC card into my N800, I can't start up the machine. But I can use the SDHC card after the machine starting up successfully. :(01:07
hellwolfI mean as a external SD card01:08
hellwolfWhen I use the card as internal SD card, there's no such problem01:08
RST38hpupnik: Looks like the chip has two on-chip memory areas (OCP T1 T2)01:08
*** jpuderer has quit IRC01:08
RST38hOne of them is the framebuffer another one is unlabeled01:08
RST38hI am pretty sure these are low-latency memories, so placing code into them should speed things up01:09
pupnikyou didn't see a tech pdf like that for 2420 then...01:09
[A2K]is maemo just good for noobs and i have to install gentoo for professional usage?01:09
Jaffa[A2K]: there is no Gentoo port to the N8x0. There are alternative OSes, such as Debian, Android, Poky, Mamona, but Maemo will be your best bet in almost all probablity.01:10
[A2K]Jaffa: there is how-to about gentoo for arm :)01:10
GeneralAntillesDebian really has the best armel branch01:11
[A2K]but it is not so sexy as gentoo01:12
*** wazd has quit IRC01:12
RST38hpupnik: Ironically, 5912 is their oldest high-perf chip01:12
RST38hit is pre-omap101:13
pupniki thought TI was going to give developers more info now with their new open-source drive01:13
kulveisn't 5912 and omap1510 based board? thus omap1..01:13
*** practisevoodoo has quit IRC01:13
RST38hit is even older than omap01:13
[A2K]hmm.. wifi just drops and can not reconnect for third time this hour.. is there some bug?01:13
Jaffa[A2K]: You might be able to get Gentoo running in a chroot then, bootstrapped by Maemo - but I'm not aware of anyone trying it. Compiling your OS on a 400MHz ARM with 128MB of RAM does not sound like a Fun Thing[TM]01:13
RST38hbut my guess is, one can use 5912 documentation for 2420, up to some degree01:13
pupnikyeah, so one could go peeking at various registers and see what they do?01:14
[A2K]Jaffa: i have allready done this, but not on nokia )01:14
RST38hpupnik: yep01:14
RST38hlooking at 3530 data now01:14
*** lsobral has quit IRC01:15
pupnikit'd also help if i were a developer.  but this is definitely a help to me - ty RST38h01:16
RST38hFor 3530 only abstracts of the documents available01:16
acydlordralann|mbp, bt for files works just fine, but when i go to make a bt dun connection the n810 drops the bt at the last second01:16

*** zs_ has quit IRC01:17
RST38hshit, "For more information about register descriptions, contact your TI representative."01:18
ralann|mbpoh yeah, forgot about that, i just use it for files01:18
[A2K]how that .install files work? what program handles them?01:19
lcukdo i have to explicitely tell svn to checkin every single new file within a folder?01:19
lcukie if i build a few classes i have to teach it each one?01:19
RST38hlcuk: use Tortoise01:19

pupnikahh TI *is* opening up01:25
RST38hMeanwhile in liberated Afghanistan: "Two Harriers launched a strike on a huge cache of 260 tons of [hashish], stuffed in sacks of grain and buried in trenches and underground bunkers in Kandahar province in southern Afghanistan.01:25

Grackle_Probably, yigal06:22
Grackle_It's entirely possible. I wouldn't call it more 'challenging,' but it would quite likely be slower.06:23
yigalGrackle_: the price difference is unfortunately a huge consideration for me, I'm a poor grad. student, but this technology is really hard to pass up when vim, mutt, tex, python etc. are available in such a sexy but functional package06:27

Grackle_yigal, Yeah, I can't afford the N810 either, I got the N800.06:33
yigalGrackle_: is it serving you well, and what do you use it for?06:34
derfyigal: The hardware keyboard really isn't that great.06:35
*** NaviiNavi is now known as Navi_06:35
Grackle_I find it to be more of a novelty than anything. I just like trying to get it to do different things. Recently, I got gcc and make and compiled gforth on the device. Just started make and popped it in my pocket. I went to work and when I checked it at lunchtime, I had a working forth system.06:35
derfThe main advantage is that it doesn't take up half your screen real-estate.06:35
*** Navi_ is now known as Navi06:36
derfThe on-screen keyboard can also be reconfigured, so you can actually get a lot more of the keys.06:36
Grackle_Where could I get the most money for my lightly used 770? I've considered putting it on ebay.06:37
yigalwell that's it I'm getting an n80006:38
Grackle_I need some money for my MSI Wind fund06:38
yigalGrackle_: nice :), but bucks06:38
Grackle_But bucks?06:38
yigalnot so many06:39
Grackle_I'm hoping I can get 100 or so.06:39
Grackle_But I'm not sure how likely that is.06:39
Grackle_Heh, Navi laughs. :|06:39
*** _acyd_ has quit IRC06:40
yigaldoes anyone here use irssi, mutt, vim, emacs with n800?06:40
Grackle_I also plan on selling my HP dv500t. Hopefully I can get 400 or 450 for that.06:40
Grackle_yigal, I would not use emacs. Using modifier keys with the onscreen keyboard is a pain in the ass.06:41
Grackle_I'm not sure if it would even be possible06:41
Grackle_vim is usable06:41
derfI used IRC and vim.06:41
Grackle_irssi works just fine06:41
Grackle_mutt ought to work fine06:41
derfAs I said, the main problem is you really only get a couple of lines of scrollback.06:42
yigalgood, good to hear, so a little gnu screen + those mentioned above and I'm really set, my mouth waters06:42
derfYes, by "use IRC" I meant, ssh+screen+irssi.06:42
yigalderf: scrollback, you mean xterm keyboard history or something else06:43
derfyigal: I meant on IRC.06:43
yigalderf: I imagine even with 8pt font :)06:44
Navi770s go for like 50 on ebay06:44
Grackle_Really Navi? I suppose I'll just keep it then.06:44
derfyigal: My eyes aren't that good anymore.06:44
derfI mean, 480 sounds like a lot of pixels, but that's really quite a high dpi...06:45
yigalderf: perhaps I shouldn't be so unkind to them, even though my eyes still are06:45
Navi50-80 I've seen06:45
* Grackle_ puts a few on watch06:45
yigalderf: I'm getting one, it is good to read other's being able to use the device for something similar to my interest needs06:45
Naviusing weechat on it with the font small06:46
NaviI loves mah high dpi06:46

RST38hIt is known that floating point stuff has to be tweaked12:52
GeneralAntillesyigal, personally, I wouldn't go over $200.12:52
pupnikwell then no, they are not optimized for arm12:52
RST38hpupnik: it is an arm tool chain :)12:52
RST38hso O3 is most likely optimized for arm :)12:52
GeneralAntillesyigal, it depends a bit on the time you want to put in, though.12:52
GeneralAntillesIf you just want to get it _now_, then you may end up a bit over $200.12:53

zapPCs have 2-4Mb nowadays12:55
zapand had 128k in the worst times12:55
RST38hWell, even if we ignore Brooklyn ghost shops, there are still quite a few left12:55
pupniki'm quite happy with performance on ARM, but there are a couple of emulators that are designed assuming those larger caches12:56
zapkulve: <<Looks like the default for -mfpu is vfp and the default for -mfloat-abi is soft>>12:56
pupnikparticularly dosbox12:56
RST38h (I would call this one on the phone though)12:56
RST38hpupnik: the cache thing - unavoidable in a lot of applications12:57
RST38hpupnik: when CPU manufacturer tells you how fast his CPU is, always ask about memory bus performance and cache sizes12:57
RST38hBecause about 75% of really useful applications will require at least 512kB cache to run fast, OR fast SDRAM bus12:58
pupnikyeah... our limit is mainly power consumption12:59
kulvemodern cpus start to use little power when the power management in the sw side works properly..13:00
RST38hit is a trade off between power and memory speed, yes13:00
RST38hkulve: you are forgetting that once you start something like dosbox, there is no way to use 'little power' as your cpu runs in a busy loop13:01
RST38hSo, the power management stuff mainly applies to situations where device is not doing anything anyway13:01
kulvemost apps are idle most of the time. Apps that aren't, needs to be fixed. I don't see why an emulator would be any different from that..13:02
kulveofc, e.g. playing video on a low end device like n8x0, will take all the cpu there is and then there's nothing one can do13:03
kulveemulators tend to need also quite a lot of cpu power, but I'm not really familiar with them..13:04
kulvebut when playing e.g. oggs on n8x0 it's idle 80% of the time13:05

tuukkahthat's where i try to install nano and less from =)14:32
tuukkahGeneralAntilles, extras seems to be different from non-extras, at least in the case of chinook14:33
GeneralAntillesNon-extras is the SDK repo. . . .14:33
GeneralAntilles[7:31am] <GeneralAntilles> tuukkah, that'd be deb diablo free non-free14:33
tuukkahGeneralAntilles, that one for chinook works, but for diablo it gives a 40414:34
* GeneralAntilles sighs.14:34
tuukkahok so /dists/diable/sdk corresponds to /dists/chinook ?14:37

tuukkahok, deb diablo/tools free non-free14:40
tuukkahfound it, thanks14:41
* lcuk is melting his head with svn14:41
tuukkahlooks good, now there's only the "(expected diablo but got )" warning14:42
GeneralAntillesAnybody else notice an updated tablet-browser-daemon?14:43

crashanddieO HAI LCUK btw14:46
lcukno crashanddie, i thought about it when it was quiet14:46
GeneralAntillesIt's got the telepathy plugins for rtcomm.14:46
*** benh has quit IRC14:47
bexis pidgin the best chat program to use?14:48
GeneralAntillesNot in my opinion14:48
GeneralAntillesbig and bloaty and unpleasant14:48
GeneralAntillesuse the built-in one, instead.14:48
bexbut that one only uses jabber doesnt it?14:50
GeneralAntillesand SIP and GTalk14:51
beavisit doesnt14:51
bexor google talk14:51
beavisand and and..14:51
GeneralAntillesbut the collabora repo contains the telepathy plugins14:51
bexnot aim?14:51
beavisaim too14:51
GeneralAntillesSo just install the appropriate plugins from that repository.14:51
bexis that what it does?14:52
bexi don't understand what the telepathy plugins are for14:53
GeneralAntillesThey add services for rtcomm.14:54
bexi guess i will find out in a minute14:54
bexwell i installed haze but i don't know what it did14:57
bexi don't know what rtcomm is14:57
GeneralAntillesaccount-telepathy-plugin too14:57
GeneralAntillesIt's the built-in chat framework. . . .14:57
tuukkahi would add the sources.list lines to the new wiki, but i don't know where. any suggestions?14:59

qwerty12_N800lcuk2, ah, i see, i'll look around15:52
lcuk2sp git was easy for me to setup and quick from the basic tests ive looked at15:52

GreyFoxxDoes nano do syntax highlighting ?19:26
RST38hkkrusty: for a quick and dirty vs replacement try genie19:26
GreyFoxxViM is my editor of choice, and one of the things I like is the integration with ctags and the syntax highlighting19:26
GreyFoxxand the fact that pretty much any *nix machine already has vi on it:)19:26
derfDon't get me wrong, I love vim.19:27
derfI wouldn't use anything else, personally.19:27
kkrustyso do you mostly use gdb without a frontend?19:27
derfBut it does have a fairly steep learning curve.19:27
GreyFoxxderf I agree, but I switched to only vi 11 years ago and it was hard for a week19:27

GeneralAntillesor it's slightly spongey?22:35
bohawjesi mean that you can feel it moving when tapping etc. and it makes it almost impossible to use with fingers22:36
bohawjesspongey is good word22:36
GeneralAntillesI have 1 N800 like that22:36
GeneralAntillesboth of my 770s are like that22:36
[A2K]ok, i think i got it. "dude, this is linux, if you want something - do it yourself" :)22:36
GeneralAntillesActually, I find the spongey N800 more accurate with fingers.22:36
GeneralAntillesThe wiki is soooooo slooooooow22:37
bohawjesi have this 770, it's not usable with fingers at all22:37
bohawjesi have to use nails if i don't have stylus available22:37
JamieBennettSpongy is all to do with the type of touch screen, its pressure sensitive22:37
Grackle_The 770 has quite a bit of squish, my N800 has barely noticable squish.22:37
GeneralAntillesJamieBennett, not quite.22:38
Grackle_Actually, I cannot detect any squish.22:38
GeneralAntillesOne of my N800s has no squish22:38
GeneralAntillesone has lots of squish22:38
bohawjesyes, i thought this is normal, but i once tried another tablet in local nokia store.. it worked hundred times better with fingers and the screen was much more "tight"22:38
Grackle_Does it have a grainier screen, similar to the 770?22:38
*** TPC has quit IRC22:38
Grackle_Or is the squishiness the only similarity?22:38
*** TPC has joined #maemo22:39
bohawjesmy screen is very spongey/loose in the bottom area of the screen. 1/3 from the top is working pretty nice with fingers and i don't notice any movement there22:39
JamieBennettGeneralAntilles: I was refering to the fact that 'normal' touchscreens (as in glass type screens) use conduction rather than pressure so the pressure ones have some play. I understand that some may be defective and move too much though.22:39
GeneralAntillesGrackle, no, the sponginess is the only similarity with the 770.22:40
GeneralAntillesEither way, Nokia really needs to tighten up everything about their touchscreens.22:40
bohawjesone thing which bothers me is, that the looseness of this screen makes it easy to scratch.22:41

*** alex-weej has joined #maemo22:44
sp3000anyway if you worry about flash wear you can always point the cache onto disposable media22:46

lcukno, i mean where in memory,  shmem starts at address 0x12341200 and continues for MBUF_LEN bytes.     (0x12341200 + 1)  is just indexing 1 byte into that array23:50

lcukperhaps something like that - at least to check23:54
lcuki ended up using similar in some functions to clarify i was doing as intended memory wise23:55
lcukits always hairy around casts23:55
lardmanchar *memstart=shmem; sets the value of memstart to the address of shmem23:56
lardman int16 *memstart16 = (int16 *)memstart; then you cast it to a 16bit pointer23:57
