Phantomok, just a moment00:07
* timeless considers trying to load that page00:08
genewitchthat page. there's a windows utility, that might work.00:08
genewitchtimeless: it's just a list of all the RX-34 .bin files00:08
timelessiirc that page has a /short/ message at the top00:08
* timeless would have hoped the message would have been remotely helpful00:08 restricted downloads00:08
* timeless recalls some not particularly useful comments next to each release00:08
genewitchThe latest IT OS DIABLO release for Nokia N80000:09
genewitchi got that one00:09
timelesswow, that page sucks00:10
genewitchi've seen worse on freshmeat00:11
timelessi try to stay out of the gutter00:11
timelessthis is as close as i get00:11
PhantomI'm asking for an advice. There's a brand-new Nokia N810 PDA with preinstalled Chinook onboard. When I try to install additional packages, the PDA asks for files in repositories that does not exists. For example, it tries to access ...binary-armel/Packages.diff/Index instead of ...binary-armel/Packages . Where should I look for solution?00:11
timelessphantom: reflash w/ diablo00:11
timeless(backup  if you have anything useful)00:11
genewitch"the software version in your device is already the latest"00:12
*** Free_maN has quit IRC00:13
genewitchthat only took 1 minute...00:13
PhantomI know there are newer versions of the OS and I certainly install them as soon as I download them. But just at the present moment I would like to know is it possible to fix the package management system before I update the system.00:13
timelessit is00:14
timelessbut it isn't worth it00:14
genewitchtimeless: it's flashed, i should be able to apt-get what you said now?00:19
timelessyou could00:19
timelessmy thing is just a way to make it easier to ssh to root@localhost00:19
timelessif you don't plan to use the xterm much, there's little need00:20
genewitchi intend to use it a lot00:20
genewitchi got this for SSH00:20
PhantomThere's another strange thing about the preinstalled OS. /etc/apt/sources.list is empty and package repositoy adresses are stored elsewhere.00:20
timelessin that case, yeah, but you need to use ssh-keygen and setup authorized_keys before you install it00:20
timelessphantom: apt supports /etc/apt/sources.list.d/00:21
PhantomYeah, I know, I just didn't have a moment to look every place :)00:21
genewitchhow long should a full battery last while in use?00:23
timelessan empty battery will barely get your device booted :)00:23
* timeless sighs00:23
genewitchyeah, but i am deciding if i want to go buy a new battery00:24
genewitchi need to get another SD card in town anyhow00:24

PhantomIs there a way to gain root access without installing anything? I read a wiki that suggests to install packages to gain root access, but I can't install them.00:29
genewitchi just had to reflash my n800 to get root00:29
*** rzr has quit IRC00:30
timelessphantom: application manager can isntall individual debs for you00:30
timelesserr install00:30
PhantomWell, since I have nothing to reflash with, this will become a solution :)00:31
timelessyou have no usb cable?00:31
PhantomI managed to install a couple of apps using dpkg00:31
timelessyou shouldn't be able to run dpkg w/o being root00:31
*** Andy80 has joined #maemo00:32
PhantomOh, err, I'm sorry. I put it wrong way.00:32
*** dick-richardson has quit IRC00:33
PhantomDkpg did not work without root privileges as it should. .deb were succesfully installed by graphical package manager.00:33
timelessyou should be able to grab debs for openssh-server and related items from the repository00:33
timelessor whichever thing you like00:34
*** des^^ has joined #maemo00:35
PhantomThere's a problem. Some debs were installed seamlessly, but some other were reported to be incompatible despite the arch is armel etc...00:35
PhantomI downloaded all debs from maemo.org00:36
timelessyou have 2007 or 2008?00:36
timeless"Message moved to Outbox waiting to be sent"00:37
* timeless wonders what that means00:37
PhantomI have the usb cable, I don't have the diablo :(00:39
* lcuk misread that as "moved to outlook" and thought we had a new hidden feature00:39
timeless"Select 1 message only"00:41
* timeless sighs00:41
*** L0cutus has joined #maemo00:43
PhantomI checked /etc/apt/sourced.list.d/* and it looks correct. So... does anybody know why it tries to access "...Packages.diff/Index" instead of "...Packages" ?00:53
timelesssuch files are real in some repos00:54
*** des^ has quit IRC00:54
*** Zic has joined #maemo00:55
PhantomWell... I see, but this is some other distro, it's usual debian, not maemo... Am I wrong ?00:57
*** tbf has quit IRC00:58
timelessmaemo is a debian derivative00:59
timelessso errors you get or patterns you see are often the same00:59
Stskeepsdiff is fine, it is a way to receive patches/diffs instead of whole packages01:00
*** mat has quit IRC01:00
PhantomI mean that since there are no such files in repo it tries to install from, so there must be some workaround to make it install things from where they are.01:00
timelessjust download the individual files :)01:01
PhantomBut as I said before, it refuses to install some debs telling that they are incompatible while they were downloaded manually from the same repo.01:02
timelessyou can read application manager's log from the menu01:03

PhantomHmm I think I somehow broke the package management system... but cannot restore it without root access.02:12
PhantomI probably could fix things if that was a usual debian system, but maemo with restricted access is pain02:13
Phantomtimeless: can you suggest something ?02:14
timelessi'd really suggest reflashing :)02:15

Livingroomhey anyone up? i need some help. specifically:08:42
Livingroomi did an apt-get upgrade on my n800. it broke; fortunately, i was booting from MMC; how can i go in and disable the lifeguard reset, using the internal flash installation?08:42
timelE61ilifeguard is controlled by fashertool08:45
Livingroomwell i get an endless boot loop. is it worth it to go get a livecd and try to disable lifeguard? or should i just reinstall?08:45
timelE61iPlay dead is controlled by presence of power - remove battery for a while08:46
Livingroomremove the battery? ok08:46
timelE61idon't leave it alone if you disable lifeguard08:47

timelE61iDo you walk away?08:48
Livingroombut this is a pda, not a forest08:48
Livingroomit never even leaves my house mostly08:48
timelE61iif you'll excuse the metaphore, disabling life guard isn't supported08:50
timelE61iPerhaps it voids your warranty08:50
Livingroomif it lets the device boot, ill be happy08:50
timelE61iIf it does and the device burns up08:50
timelE61iBecause you were out...08:50
Livingroomwell, what do you reccommend that i do to recover?08:51
timelE61ibAby sit it :)08:51
Livingroomwhat i mean is, how do i stop the bootloop?08:51
timelE61ipull the battery :)08:51
timelE61iWhat data is on there that you need08:52
timelE61iCan you mount it in a normal computer?08:52

*** Kathrin-25^away has joined #maemo08:53
Livingroomwhat if i just ran through the instructions for booting from MMC again, and just recopied over the good install? but if i apt-get upgrade again, it'll just break. argh08:53
Livingroomordinarily i can boot safe from a lilo prompt and read the /var/log- but this device does not afford me this opportunity08:54
timelE61idid you install syslog?08:54
timelE61iBecause normally it ain't there08:54
Livingroomi'm fairly certain i did08:55
timelE61ithere are ext2/3 viewers for windows08:56
timelE61iFind a readonly one and read the log08:56
Livingroomi have a working partition on the device though, cant i just mount from there?08:56
timelE61ihow uncomfortable is your win box08:57
Livingroomnot uncomfortable at all?08:58
timelE61iTypicallyy i prefer real keyboards and big screens for log file reading08:58

AStormwith 100 being the expected average15:02
suihkulokkimost people think they are smarter than average ;)15:02
AStormand IQ precision is about 10 points15:02
AStormof most tests15:02
mavhc99% of people surveyed thought they were better than average drivers15:02
AStormyou can have that much variance15:03
Ziccan you confirm that the ARM v6 cpu on the N800 is more powerful than a ARM v4 processor on a Freerunner ? they are both cadenced à 600Mhz15:03
AStormmavhc: idiots ;P the *average* is the average15:03
infobotZic meant: can you confirm that the ARM v6 cpu on the N800 is more powerful than a ARM v4 processor on a Freerunner ? they are both cadenced at 600Mhz15:03

Macer20 federal agencies for a football game?15:03
AStormthanks to bell curve15:03
mavhcAStorm: 50% of those very close are below, 2 digits15:03
AStormyes, so?15:04
AStormas I said, IQ tests aren't precise enough15:04
mavhcso 50% of people have 2 digit iq15:04

suihkulokkiyou can never be too carefull15:04
Zicwazd: yes it is, just a typo, sorry15:04
AStormtrue, but 2-digit eq close to 100 doesn't tell you if a person is stupider than average15:04
AStormtoo much noise15:04
MacerNBC made 206M$15:04

Macerwhy aren't they paying for some of this crap ?15:04
*** slonopotamus has quit IRC15:05
AStorm(the expected range for most "average" people is 90-100-110)15:05
AStormof course, if the test (different) is taken many times, the actual noise should average out15:06
AStormand you get your own true value15:06
RST38hMacer: Enjoy:
mavhcAStorm: 68.27% of people are between 84-11615:07
AStormclose to 50 between 90 and 10015:07
AStorm90 and 110 (stupid keyboard!)15:08
AStorm33% between 84 and 10015:08
StskeepsZic: vfp ability prolly helps in some cases :P15:09
AStorm*you* might be there and think yourself above average ;P15:09
RST38hAStorm,mavhc: just want to point out that IQ value cannot be weighted against the whole population simply because you do not have the numbers for the whole population to get the mean from15:09
ZicStskeeps: vpf ability?15:10
AStormRST38h: but we have representative groups, almost as good15:10
RST38hI.e. it may be weighted against some data computed some time ago, for some group of people15:10
mavhcRST38h: but we can have a confidence interval15:10
AStormpopulational was considered at one time15:10
AStormbut it looked as if people were getting dumber with time15:10
AStormso they threw the idea out the window15:10
AStorm(as in, old people = stupid)15:10
Stskeepswhich armv4t doesn't have, AFAIK15:10
AStormand they noticed a few sharp jumps in IQ too15:11
RST38hAStorm: Well, the amount of IQ given to Earthlings by the Wise Tentacled One is constant while the population is constantly increasing...15:11
AStorm(in age groups)15:11
AStormuh, no15:11
AStormactually, using older measures of IQ, it's increasing slowly, linearly15:11
RST38hMacer: BTW, I can personally sign under each word of that article. It does look gross if you haven't watched it for a while.15:11
AStormbut there were a bunch of spikes (both up and down)15:12
AStormthat's why now IQ is measured in age groups, not whole population15:12
AStormsome people tried to prove that race determines IQ... actually, they failed15:13
AStormenvironment does though15:13
AStorm(a bit)15:13
RST38hAStorm: Let us just assume that the gradual increase in Earth's global IQ is a product of Tentacled One's gastrointestinary processes15:14
AStormthat's why you can expect an average Afro-american to score similarly to slums White.15:14
mavhcreally need more ram in internet tablets, does it affect battery life?15:14
AStormRST38h: or global warming ;P15:14
AStormmavhc: try compcache!15:14
RST38hAStorm: Which leads us to a simple solution15:14
AStormmavhc: it shouldn't affect battery life a whole lot15:14
AStormI'd expect 2-3%15:15
mavhcneeds more ram then, anyone good at soldering? :-)15:15
RST38hAStorm: By feeding part of the world population to the Tentacled One, we both decrease population and increase His gastrointestinary activity thus increasing avreage human's IQ15:15
AStormmavhc: uhhh, OMAP 2 doesn't support more I think15:15
AStormYou'd have to wire in a controller15:15
RST38hmavhc: you are screwed there, I am is integrated into one of the chips15:15
AStormRST38h: prove it15:15
AStormalso, who is that Tentacled One (I know the True Name)15:16
mavhcwhen they say all-in-one chip, they mean it then15:16
AStormRST38h: it's not15:16
AStormit's a separate DRAM chip, controller *is* integrated though15:16
AStormbut, you could abuse Linux15:16
AStormhave RAM look like flash chip15:16
AStormthen, use it for swapping15:16
AStormpeople actually did that15:17
mavhca literal ram disk15:17
ZicStskeeps: thanks, but even if VFP or not VFP... :) A friend told me that the ARM v4 processor on the Freerunner is really slower than the ARM v6 (without speak about software influence, just hardware theory)15:17
RST38hAStorm: Heres is the canonical image of the Tentacled One *explaining* a few technical details to Nokia engineers:
AStormmavhc: btw, try compcache already15:17
Zic(ARM v6 which is on N8*0 IT)15:17
mavhcwithout software all cpus are limited to 9.8m/s/s15:17
AStormmavhc: limited to what?15:18
RST38hAStorm: Well, if I understand GAN's explanation correctly, it is an integrated DRAM+NAND chip15:18
StskeepsZic: i wasn't positively impressed by the freerunner when spending some days nearby it15:18
RST38hAStorm: So, no hope upgrading it15:19
mavhclimited to gravity15:19
AStormRST38h: it is, but that doesn't stop you from adding another one15:19
AStormRST38h: except that RAM controller supports 256 MB afaicr15:19
suihkulokkiRST38h: they are not *integrated* they are *stacked* - omap + dram + nand on top of each others15:19
AStorm(but flash does support much more)15:19
AStormof course, you can't rip out any15:20
ZicStskeeps: ah ! you are interesting me, what's your opinion about Freerunner ? (in comparaison with N8*0 IT, because I'm hesitating to sell my Nokia IT because I order a Freerunner recently)15:20
AStormbut, there are spare pins15:20
RST38hsuihkul: From the point of view of a guy with a soldering iron, that is integrated =)15:20
*** housetier has joined #maemo15:20
StskeepsZic: i'd keep the NIT personally and only buy freerunner if you want to hack things on to it15:20

Stskeepsif you want an actual usable phone, get a cheap nokia :P15:20
RST38hFreerunner is pretty useless as a consumer device15:21

AStormmavhc: so, you're most likely out of luck here15:23

RST38hZic: A cheap slim Samsung will save your day15:23
AStormbtw, could someone package that kernel module?15:23

AStormother than that, it's fine15:25

RST38hAStorm: ah who care about USB on it...15:25
AStormRST38h: I do, when I connect it to the laptop15:25
AStormto use as a modem15:25
AStormbluetooth is limited too 300 kbps or so15:25
RST38hAStorm: It just has to call and provide GPRS over BT15:26
AStormbut BT is too slow for some reason15:26
AStormI don't know why, it does support all the fast protocols15:26
ZicStskeeps: hmm, afaik, HSPDPA exists without GSM modem (?)15:26
StskeepsZic: yeah, probably15:26
RST38hYou can probably get a slim S40-based Nokia or an E51 for the same purpose15:26
AStormGSM != GPRS15:26
RST38hBut it will be more expensive15:26
Stskeepsjust saying that it would be useful to include 2G in 3G chipset :P15:27

RST38hAStorm: OTOH, as they will most likely use the same baseband hw as used in their phones, it will most likely have GSM15:33
AStormthat too :)15:33
AStormeven if they don't implement it fully, we'll have a nice hacking ground15:33
* RST38h suspects voice calling will be disabled though, 2G or 3G15:33

Zicor hardware ?15:34
AStormRST38h: unlikely, I suspect it will be done fully in hardware15:34
AStormas a special soundcard or such15:34
AStormmuch easier than writing the software15:34
Zicbecause if hardware supports 2G and/or 3G and does not have software function to work, maybe some hackers can... hack :)15:34

*** timelE61i has quit IRC18:01
AStormthat would work just as fast18:01
mavhcbecause they only care if their app runs, not if it runs when 3 other apps are running? or because they want to optimise last, after all the features are complete18:01
AStormmavhc: that, and it is no gain either18:02
mavhccacheing renders means it's using the same amount of ram18:02
AStormE libs support compressed images btw18:02

AStormX server might support them18:02
mavhcso it's not a crazy idea18:02

AStormwhy do you have to keep the images in memory? - so that X server can display them18:03
AStormif X server doesn't support compression directly, you've a problem18:03
mavhcbut we're not constantly redrawing the UI, there's no overlapping windows for a start18:03

AStormit's a side effect of having an X server w/o support for compressed formats18:06
johnxkeesj, ah, very interesting. so the goal is to modify maemo as little as possible, correct?18:06
AStormmavhc: be thankful that apps don't have to manage the images themselves18:06
AStormso you end up with 2 copies18:07
keesjjohnx: I don't really know, I just and mainly wonder about the development process out there18:07
AStormkeesj: fremantle should work on that out of the box18:07
mavhcso does the xserver just redraw images without talking to the app? the app just tells it what area of ram the image is in?18:07
johnxAStorm, define "out of the box"18:07
AStormjohnx: as in "almost the same hardware"18:07
AStormmavhc: the app and X server throw around XIDs18:08
johnx"out of the box" != "some hacking required" :P18:08
keesjAStorm: and as "A safe change"18:08
AStormjohnx: it will "work" w/o hacking18:08
AStormat least, most features18:08
AStormthe hardware is so similar.18:09
mavhcwhat if it's a vector art program redrawing?18:09
AStormmavhc: so it's usually like: move this XID there18:09
AStormmavhc: then it has to blit to a bitmap first18:10
AStormor maybe use X drawing routines directly - but these are lacking in features18:10
mavhcso it's stored once in vram, and once in ram18:10
AStormyes, so? you can use shm18:10
AStormas in, XShm extension18:10
AStormnah, even that won't work18:11

AStorma lot of CPU for a tiny bit of RAM.18:12
b-manah, ok :)18:12
AStormrendering, say, SVG uses a lot of CPU18:13
AStormit's much cheaper to hold the image and modify it18:13
mavhcyes, but what about RLE compression?18:13
mavhcfor the previous case of bitmap compression18:13
AStormRLE of those bitmaps?18:13
AStormagain, if X server supports compressed formats18:13
mavhcthe pre vector discussion18:13
AStormand the gfx card does...18:13
AStormotherwise it will have to be unpacked somewhere18:13
mavhcor you decompressed on the fly when asked for the rectangle, then deleted the decompressed version again18:14
AStormalso, modifying the image obviously will require a decompression18:14
AStormyes, you could do that18:14
Stskeepsb-man: did you push too?18:14
mavhcbecause in a general use case on maemo the UI isn't redrawn more often than once a second in a worst case18:14

johnxStskeeps, right now I think they're very focused on getting fremantle out of the door. And they did talk about fremantle on beagleboards a while ago I I think it's more about filling in the blanks on a one-off nature rather than becoming really portable...18:31
AStormno, just uncheck them18:31
AStormremove them from the desktop and/or tray18:32
Stskeepsjohnx: yeah, true - but still, if they're even distributing how to put maemo on another device, is a plus18:32
AStormit's configurable in the control panel and desktop menu18:32
mavhcthat's what I meant by not displayed18:32
mavhcdid you mean on the desktop, but covered by another window?18:32
johnxStskeeps, agreed. maybe they'll be more willing to talk right after fremantle is out the door, before the heavy work for hermatatatan starts18:32
AStormmavhc: they took like, all, 300 KB though18:33
AStormso don't even bother18:33
AStormunless one of your applets is running python :P18:33
johnxalso, the psion teklogix netbook pro looks like an interesting device :)18:33
AStorm(then python will show in process list)18:33
AStormmavhc: I guess hildon-desktop is so large, because it caches all the menu bitmaps18:35

AStormno other reason why it should take 16 MB18:35
mavhcmenu bitmaps = the corners etc, or all the text too?18:36
