IRC log of #maemo for Sunday, 2009-08-16

timeless_mbpsadly marius can't spell to save his reputation00:05
johnsqspellinng isn't important for developers00:06
timeless_mbpor maybe i can't read at 6mins past midnight00:06
timeless_mbpit's the latter, so i definitely need to hunt dinner00:07
timeless_mbp :(00:07
*** Interocitor has quit IRC00:08
timeless_mbpi'm right, he can't spell00:09
* timeless_mbp relies on finns sisu preventing them from asking a spell checker for help00:09
*** bef0rd has quit IRC00:11
timeless_mbpdoes the output from that page seem useful?00:12
*** victorpoluceno__ has joined #maemo00:12
timeless_mbp(and yes, i'm aware the output is stupid in various amusing ways)00:12
lcuktimeless, "Your search was too long, the full search was converted into a filter."00:14
timeless_mbplcuk: yes00:14
timeless_mbpthe search engine doesn't handle strings > 29 characters00:14
timeless_mbpthis search is based on a line of text in a file00:14
timeless_mbpwhich is totally bogus as search input :)00:14
*** chaoyi has joined #maemo00:14
timeless_mbpthe point is the recovery path00:14
lcukwell frankly i dunno what it has done00:15
lcukbut it found nothing00:15
timeless_mbpthere's a line that tries to explain what it was searching00:16
lcukmind you, google cant parse that00:16
timeless_mbpand it has helpful suggestions for things you could search instead00:16
timeless_mbpthe helpful suggestions are new00:17
lcukit does a valiant job and gets me the commits00:17
timeless_mbpand are based on javispedro's failing00:17
lcuk is first restult00:17
lcukhow come mxr isnt in google to allow you to setup a custom search front end00:18
lcukas lots of source sites appear to have (I even think itt had a custom google search at some point00:18
timeless_mbpbecause i don't think i can afford the bandwidth00:18
lcukok reasonable enough, theres a lot of code there00:19
timeless_mbpanyway, the reason i asked about "commits" is that you wrote "cant"00:19
timeless_mbpwhich i parsed as "can not"00:19
timeless_mbpwhich seemed like a perfectly reasonable parse!00:19
lcukno, i expected your site to be in the rankings00:20
lcukand dont really think google should be coming to a mailing list - i hate the way it does, it makes finding code hard00:20
lcukor rather, reading code00:20
* lcuk likes mxr00:21
lcukand following links everywhere :)00:21
timeless_mbpi'll ask my host if he thinks we can afford to let google index us00:21
lcukhow large is the database itself now00:23
lcukits gotta be mega00:23

timeless_mbpthat's just the diablo cross reference00:24
lcukthats smaller than i expected00:25
timeless_mbpthe corresponding glimpse index is about 100mb00:25
lcukthe database of sketches im working with on the tablet is ~115mb00:25
timeless_mbpthe box has a number of xref's00:25

lcukso you just point it at a source folder and let it munch its way through it?00:27
timeless_mbppretty much00:28

lcuknow i see where the bandwidth issue comes form00:29
*** victorpoluceno_ has quit IRC00:29
timeless_mbpand keep in mind that a bunch of trees have a couple of names00:30
timeless_mbpwhich means i get to pay 2-3x for each name00:30
lcukyeah i can see00:30
timeless_mbpplus i have to pay for each identifier00:30
timeless_mbpand possibly each search :)00:30
lcukwhat if you altered tact00:31
lcukand instead of locally hosting attempting a transition to one of the grid databases00:31
timeless_mbpdid i mention i'm a web 0.9 person00:32
timeless_mbpthat sounds like web 3.000:32
lcuki know00:32
lcukbut google have heaps of space on their servers for this kind of stuff00:32
lcukand the processing power they can offer over such large datasets could be good00:32
*** victorpoluceno_ has joined #maemo00:33
lcuk(listen to me, i am the person who has gone right back to basics..)00:33
lcukim happiest with regular databases00:33
LinuxCodepupnik, what is wrong with gardening!00:34
lcukheh, cave painting :P00:34
lcukgardening is good, you can grow bacon00:34
LinuxCodegardening is good, it keeps you away froma  computer00:35

* VDVsx kicks autobuilder for taking too much time :(00:36
* pupnik apologises for being useless and offtopic00:36
pupnikwell i did study some GemRB today00:37
lbttimeless_mbp: hi.. do you know about en_gb issue in Mer00:37
timeless_mbpspeak quickly00:37
*** mcpi has quit IRC00:37
timeless_mbpi'm starving00:37
timeless_mbplbt: the only thing i know is that the string set before last had engb date formats00:37
timeless_mbpin files that were supposedly enus00:37
timeless_mbpfor which i was terribly embarassed00:37
timeless_mbpi gave Stskeeps fixed strings last week00:38
lbtwe should be able to use both though?00:38
timeless_mbpit will mean that people who want engb will um... have to undo some of those changes00:38
timeless_mbpwell, nothing prevents someone from taking my strings and maintaining an engb fork00:38
timeless_mbpor a simple symlink00:38
lbten_gb should be the main en_* set... ;)00:38
timeless_mbpthe changes are mostly color, personalize, and date formatting00:38
*** victorpoluceno__ has quit IRC00:39
qwerty12_N810en_GB should be renamed to en00:39
*** rm_you_ has joined #maemo00:39
lbten_us is the fork00:39

qwerty12_N810(and a bad one at that ;P)00:40
* timeless_mbp sighs00:41

timeless_mbpoddly non nokians00:41
lcukqwerty, HIDE00:41
qwerty12_N810lcuk: you're guilty too: I see you using color :p00:41
lcukim lazy tho00:41
lcukand i dont write in english or american00:41
lcukremember, for me, "canvass" used to be the correct spelling00:42
*** zap has quit IRC00:44
lcuklol timeless00:47
lcuki had code everywhere that used it00:47
timeless_mbplcuk: anyway, about mxr00:50
timeless_mbpthe interesting thing from the original url i gave you was:00:50
timeless_mbpFor faster searches, you could search for these identifiers: HildonFileSelectionPrivate, priv, HILDON_FILE_SELECTION, data, priv00:50
lcukit offered tokenized suggestions as you said00:50
timeless_mbpthe question is, is that helpful00:50
timeless_mbpand is it something you or someone like you would understand and use00:50
timeless_mbpif it needs to be presented some other way, i need help :)00:51
timeless_mbpshould it be in bold on its own line like the search too long bit?00:51
lcuki would be more frustrated at hitting the limit than the suggestions offered to be honest, most of the time - a person wouldnt come to a search like that after one iteration00:51
lcukso in that scenario, it helps randomly, but the user would normally just click back if they are told the query was too long00:52
*** koan has quit IRC00:52
*** koan has joined #maemo00:52
timeless_mbpi'm assuming the original query was something like this:00:53
timeless_mbpand that it took too long00:53
timeless_mbpexcept atm it's not taking too long afaict00:54
lcukwhat if you told them the same00:55
lcukbut ran the query with the 29chars00:55
*** croppa has joined #maemo00:56
lcukstill give the warning00:56
lcukbut least then they get the first section00:56
*** chaoyi has quit IRC01:10
*** L0c has joined #maemo01:10
timeless_mbpi do01:12
timeless_mbpthe reason the original url gave no output is it was told to only search files named 'xxx'01:13
timeless_mbpoddly, some files do have 'xxx' in their name01:13
timeless_mbpso it really did do some work01:13
timeless_mbpjust not much, which made the query fast01:13
lcuklol, mostly depends on what you are searching for01:13
lcukok understood01:13
lcukin that context then, its less of an issue01:13
lcukit just looked wrong you not trying at all01:13
timeless_mbphistorically it wouldn't try at all01:14
timeless_mbpbut i changed that a while ago01:14
timeless_mbpthis is technically an unrelated improvement01:14
timeless_mbpalthough i'm hard pressed to come up w/ a case where it's helpful01:14
timeless_mbpother than this one01:14
lcukheh ok01:15
* timeless_mbp will try it on gecko code to see if it's useful01:15
lcuki have to vanish, jakes runnin amok and should be fast asleep01:16
lcukill catch you later timeless :)01:16

*** chaoyi has quit IRC01:45
*** johnsq has quit IRC01:45
Maceri'll be better off just selling it later after i get an n900 or whatever the want to call it01:46
Maceror my vapor book touch01:46
lcukn810 is an extremely capable machine01:46
lcukeven if used purely as a remote control with bluemaemo :)01:46
Macersure, with maemo on it :)01:46
Macerall the alternatives don't work or suck01:47
pupnikwhat isn't working Macer ?01:47
Macerwell. mer has a ton of gui issues01:48
timeless_mbplike what?01:48
Macergentoo wno't boot because it's literally trying to boot from /dev/{EXT_CARD}p1 (where it can't find its linuxrc01:48
Macertimeless_mbp: edit the menu01:48
Macerthe application menu01:48
Maceryou get stuck01:48
*** hellwolf has quit IRC01:48
* timeless_mbp grumbles01:48
Maceredit the network connections01:48
timeless_mbpthe registration thing for maemo summit isn't honoring my privacy settings01:49
* timeless_mbp kicks someone01:49
Maceryou get stuck again with no way to get out short of either sshing (which didn't work because it kept asking for my password over and over(01:49
*** cyndis has quit IRC01:49
Macerthe strings in the gui are totally borked :)01:49
Macerso yo uhave things like hildon_didnt_change_this_ok01:49
Macerwhere just OK should be01:49
timeless_mbpwell um01:49
Maceri mean that's cosmetic01:50
timeless_mbpthose are because mer is using an old hildon01:50
Macerbut the spots where you get totally stuck01:50
Macerlike i said.. the application menu editor01:50
Macerand the network editor01:50
timeless_mbpi don't really want to maintain diablo hildon strings together with fremantle hildon01:50
Macerare major bugs :)01:50
Maceras though a screen behind the one you are on01:50
timeless_mbpi'm not even sure how one edits similar things in fremantle01:50
Macerhas taken over the screen01:50
Macerbut you can't get to it because there is one in front of it01:51
pupniknewp to timeless_mbp, not Macer sory01:51
timeless_mbp"newp" ?01:51
pupnikthat does sound like a bug01:51
pupnikthe short version of 'nope'01:51
Macerpupnik: well. when trying to edit the network01:51
Macerthe "key access" screen is in teh background01:51
Maceryou can't click ok because the key access menu has taken control01:51
timeless_mbpnetwork = network-manager01:51
Macerso you're basically just stuck01:51
timeless_mbpnetwork-manager = disaster01:51
timeless_mbpi tried translating it once01:52
Macertimeless_mbp: i don't think it is that01:52
timeless_mbpi have the strings i did somewhere01:52
Maceri think it is another major bug01:52
timeless_mbpi don't think i gave them to sts yet01:52
*** borism has quit IRC01:52
Macerit does the same thing01:52
pupnikMacer, i suspect that a lot of gui-stuff is still unfinished01:52
Macerwhen ediing the application menu01:52
timeless_mbpi think they're likely to drop nm in favor of something else01:52
Maceris there a way to run stock hildon in mer?01:52
zerojayPCWhat's the name of the syslogd for maemo again?01:52
pupnikor rather gui-helper apps.  You should have a running terminal to do anything you want ;)01:52
Macerinstead of the mer one?01:52
*** cyndis has joined #maemo01:53
timeless_mbpMacer: stock hildon from maemo4.1 or from maemo5.0?01:53
Macerfrom diablo01:53
timeless_mbpthe problem is that the strings are from maemo5.001:53
timeless_mbpyou could install the diablo strings from enus1 in extras-devel01:53
timeless_mbpthat should give you fewer foo_bar_baz_strings01:54
Macertimeless_mbp: if i could get to the menus to do it01:54
Macerbut the menu editing was a deal breaker01:54
Macereverything is in extras01:54
Macerand you can't move it with the gui01:54
* timeless_mbp pokes with a stick01:54
Macereverything is put into extras by default no matter where you tell it to go in the menu01:54
timeless_mbplanguage-support-translations-enus1 is the package01:55
timeless_mbpif you want to install it w/ apt01:55
Maceri'd have to re-install mer first01:55
timeless_mbpit will pull in ~70 packages01:55
*** monkeyiq has quit IRC01:55
Macerwhich honestly. i think i'll just wait until my n810 is obsolete01:55
Macerand run maemo on it01:55
Macerand shove it in my car like i was going to01:55
Macerand wait for my vaporbook touch01:55
timeless_mbpapple vaporbook?01:55
Macertouch book01:55
Macervaporware edition01:55
Maceri might actually just get a smartq701:56
Macerand put debian on it :)01:56
* timeless_mbp doesn't know that vendor01:56
Macertimeless_mbp: made by always innovating01:56
Macerit's their version of the pandora01:56
lcukwithout a keyboard01:57
lcukand with a bigger screen01:57
lcukand no nobbles01:57
zerojayPCtimeless_mbp: Eh... apparently, it cannot be found, even though i remember it being sysklogd like you said. ;/01:57
lcukand a battery so big i think lifetime is measured in weeks01:57
timeless_mbpzerojayPC: what dist and what repos?01:57
Macerlcuk: haha01:58
Macerhence, vaporware01:58
zerojayPCtimeless_mbp: Standard diablo.01:58
Macerthe company literally said they were shipping01:58
lcuksmartq7 is nice01:58
Macerand yet nobody has gotten 1 in 3 weeks01:58
Macerlcuk: yeah01:58
Maceri was going to get one and run debian on it01:58
zerojayPCMaybe it's in extras-devel?01:58
MacerREAL debian01:58
lcukits only marginally more powerful than the 810 tho isnt it01:58
lcuklbt, you know better than most01:59
jeremiahI saw one in Copenhagen and it looked pretty cheap to me.01:59
timeless_mbpit used to be there in chinook01:59
jeremiah(the smartq7)01:59
lbtQ7... it's v. similar to N800  CPU up to 667 though01:59
Maceri think it was like 67701:59
Maceri'm wondering if it acts more like a pc though than the n80002:00
lbtit's a big tablet02:00
Macerwhat OS does it run?02:00
lbtkinda cute when you plug a  USB keyboard in though02:00
lbtand use the terminal maximised02:01
lbtMer of course02:01
Macerno i mean02:01
Macerwhat does it come with haha02:01
lbtfairly vanilla ubuntu IIRC02:01
Macerah ok02:01
lbtsome extra menus - I took piccies02:01
lbtit's not good02:01
Macerit's like $250 or so right?02:02
Maceror something like that?02:02
lbtit varies02:02
lbtsounds right02:02
Macerhow's battery life?02:02
lbtgoshawk sells them with a 2yr warranty IIRC02:02
Macersame as this aspire 1?02:02
lbtnot great - Mer still has issues in that area02:02
lbtwe need to get the kernel to work with powertop02:03
* Macer won't start with the mer issues02:03
lbtI thought you ran gentoo ?02:03
Maceri tried02:03
Macerwouldn't boot02:03
Macerhad the fb working and everything02:03
Macerwhich was actually cooler in maemo than gentoo02:04
lbtah, I got confused - I mean, mer has some minor issues atm02:04
Macerwould try to literally use {EXT_CARD}p102:04
lbtbut it just works on my Q7 and N80002:04
Maceras though the string isn't getting passed off to it or something02:04
Macerwho knows02:04
Maceri gave up02:04
lbtI only boot diablo for liqbase02:04
Macerand just started to put stock maemo on02:04
lbtfair enough02:04
lbtmaybe try again on 0.1602:04
lbtwe need devs really02:05
Maceri'll probably check it every 5 vers or so ;)02:05
lbtI'm surprised how few seem to actually be helping out02:05
Macerlast one i tried before 0.15 was 0.902:05
Macerand honestly02:05
Macerthe gui seems the same :)02:05
Macerhorribly immature and broken02:06
Maceri mean i'm sure you guys did a ton of work on the base.. but yeah.. i'm not too bad with this stuff and it like... is wow02:06
lbtwell, neither me nor sts are gtk coders - and "community developed" doesn't mean "wait for someone else to do it"02:06
*** chelli has quit IRC02:06
Macerlbt: not a CS major ;)02:06
lbtyeah, I didn't mean you specially02:07
Macertruth be told02:07
Maceri think someone will simply port maemo 5 over to the n81002:07
Macerlater on :)02:07
Macerand i dont mean mer02:08
lbterr, Mer is maemo5 ported to the n81002:08
lbtthe free bits02:08
Maceryah well..02:08
Maceri have the feeling someone will port actual maemo 5 over02:08
*** javispedro has joined #maemo02:08

pupnikother ramen brands, silly02:14
* timeless_mbp grins02:15
pupniknot sure it's worth the cost02:15
timeless_mbpi had fun w/ a bug last week02:15
timeless_mbpsomeone filed a bug, and was told that they were smoking something02:15
timeless_mbpsomeone defended the bug filer02:15
timeless_mbpi called the defender by phone and then chewed him out while he was on speaker phone02:15
timeless_mbpthen i verified the bug as invalid indicating he had agreed by phone (i had a number of ear witnesses)02:16
*** t0h has quit IRC02:16
timeless_mbpsomeone was afraid the bug would be "reopened" because the wrong person did the verification, but it was closed recently, so i don't think the bug will try to return to the land of the living :)02:16
* pupnik rereads02:17
pupnikyes, likely :)02:18
timeless_mbpactually that summary is missing the point where i resolved the bug as invalid before the defender stepped in, but ...02:18
timeless_mbpso... one thing i ask of people here02:19
timeless_mbpcould you take some time and describe how/where you use your tablets02:19
timeless_mbpwhat sort of network environment (signal quality)02:19
timeless_mbpstationary, moving, @home, @work, @train02:19
pupnikhere? now?02:20
timeless_mbpunder those conditions, do you expect/tolerate different results? do you do different things?02:20
StskeepsMacer: we'd have gone with fremantle hildon desktop if we could. fact: it's too bloody tied up in clutter.02:20
timeless_mbpsurvey your last year or so02:20
javispedrotimeless, fwiw, I just read the logs -- hope I remember to do ident searches in the future :P02:20
Stskeepsand hence to the 3d drivers02:20
timeless_mbpjavispedro: =)02:20
timeless_mbpmxr should help you there, since it'll now suggest them :)02:21
lcukStskeeps, my god, your wife is forgiving lol02:21
lcuk:) hope you had a good day02:21
timeless_mbpalso, i think the front page has changed so now highlights ident search02:21
*** L0c has quit IRC02:21
timeless_mbpotoh, it doesn't do it in a way that means much if you don't know what it is02:22
lcuklbt, o_O i am the sticker for maemo02:22
lcukdoes liqbase run on your smartq02:22
StskeepsMacer: so before complaining i'd like to see you approach the problem better with absolutely no clear indication of how many parts of fremantle ui looked like, and design for that.02:22
javispedrothanks timeless and sorry if I caused too much mayhem :)02:23
timeless_mbpStskeeps: just reimplement windows 3.102:23
timeless_mbpjavispedro: nah, no problem02:23
timeless_mbpalthough it usually is better to include a url02:23
timeless_mbpthe fact that i had server logs is not typical02:23
timeless_mbp"something is broken"02:23
timeless_mbpis the input i usually get from a manager02:24
timeless_mbpand definitely does not endear them to me02:24
*** coldboot|home has joined #maemo02:24
timeless_mbpsince i work on web browsers, and web servers, people can usually say "this url <...> doesn't load"02:24
timeless_mbpand that is much easier to deal with than "something is broken"02:24
javispedrooh, I know that. "it doesn't work" instead of the way more useful even though still pretty generic "outputs useless data".02:25
javispedrosometimes I would pay to know that before I have to move my ass :P02:25
timeless_mbpi'm considering talking about "problems facing mobile browser developers" at Maemo Summit02:26
*** k-s[AWAY] is now known as k-s02:27
timeless_mbpalthough that's not a sexy title for a session02:27
* Stskeeps 'd try to hear that session02:27
timeless_mbp"why it would be bad if the browser bought you 2 cars when you were only trying to buy 1" might be better, if only a tad bit long02:28
timeless_mbpthat was the invalid bug btw02:28
*** padovan has joined #maemo02:29
timeless_mbpanyway, it'd help me if people could describe (in mailto timeless@gmail)02:29
timeless_mbphow they try to use their "mobile" devices02:29
timeless_mbpespecially the wheres, whens, hows, expectations, failings,...02:29
timeless_mbpin a span of 2 days i had two people describing interesting scenarios02:29
timeless_mbpday 1, buying 2 cars. day 2, a chance to order two hotel rooms02:30
Stskeepsi often book train tickets.02:30
Stskeepsvery useful on the go.02:30
javispedrotimeless, will guess. he bought two cars because he tried to go back and the browser POST'd same data twice and some idiot on the server side did not handle that?02:31
javispedro*wild guess.02:31

timeless_mbpit was actually he wanted the browser to automatically POST again if he intentionally changed networks02:31
timeless_mbp(or accidentally changed networks, he didn't care)02:31
timeless_mbpi had to explain to him why it would be a bad idea to buy two cars for the user02:32
timeless_mbpit was a very very funny conversation, and my coworkers enjoyed it02:32
javispedrothat scenario happened to me.. on fax.02:32
timeless_mbpif you could transcribe your story and send it to me by email, that'd be great02:33
timeless_mbpi'd love to be able to mention it when i give my talk02:33
javispedroit's not tablet related :P02:33
timeless_mbpno, but it's related in that it explains how these things can happen02:33
t_s_owhy am i reminded of the cuban crisis...02:33
timeless_mbpand why browsers can't simply do certain things02:33
timeless_mbpt_s_o: cuban missile or some other crisis?02:34
t_s_othat would be the one02:34
timeless_mbpwell, there was water between me and the reporter02:34
*** lbt has quit IRC02:34
timeless_mbpmostly a lot of land02:34
timeless_mbpwhich given that the instigator of the crisis was russia and not cuba02:35
timeless_mbpi guess the same would apply (all of europe being mostly land)02:35
timeless_mbpthere was also a language barrier02:35

timeless_mbpthe moves were telegraphed (if you consider bugzilla a telegraph like thing)02:36
pupniktimeless_mbp: do i understand correctly that you would like concrete examples rather than "i websurf a lot at home, less on the go"02:36
timeless_mbpconcrete examples would definitely be better02:37
timeless_mbpe.g. saying "i use my device in an airplane" or "i use my device on a train"02:37
javispedrowhat I learnt is that this scenario should be handled server side. something can & will go wrong on the client (disconnection while downloading response page, or, as in my case, the fax software (outlook, go figure) wrongly considering it didn't went through ).02:37
timeless_mbpisn't as good as "i use my device weekly on roundtrip plane rides from WAS to SFO"02:37
timeless_mbpjavispedro: well, thing is, while it'd be nice if servers weren't stupid02:38
timeless_mbpin fact, they are :)02:38

timeless_mbpand you only used it in your home02:40
timeless_mbpwhy would you care how big/bulky/heavy it was?02:40
timeless_mbpor how long its battery lasted?02:40
pupnikbecause i have to do a lot of work at home and need to be mobile02:40
javispedroeasy: night bed reading.02:40
pupnikmaybe *your* home is a cardboard box...02:40
timeless_mbpif you only use it at home and at work, and both are capable of charging it, why do you care how long its battery lasts?02:40

*** koan has joined #maemo15:07
timeless_mbpslonopotamus: if you get it wrong, do you brick the device? :)15:07
Stskeepsgood guess would be the data part, or header crc: header with crc set to 015:07
slonopotamustimeless_mbp, no, it doesn't modify anything15:08
slonopotamusStskeeps, 1 sec...15:08
slonopotamusStskeeps,;a=blob;f=src/libopencal.c;hb=HEAD#l81 here's header struct15:09
slonopotamusStskeeps, last field is header crc15:10
* slonopotamus hopes he uses same algorithm as libcal :D15:10
Stskeepsslonopotamus: then it's the header with crc as 0 probably15:11
Stskeeps(basically, set all other header fields than crc, which should be 0, take crc, and -then- set hdr_crc15:11
Stskeepsthat's the usual tactic15:11

lcukarghhh user permissions prevent my evil plan from working15:48
StskeepsMacer: so far you're following a similar path .. we got tired of Maemo's oddities, so we started Debian, got a good mobile WM going, and realised the battery life was crap cos a desktop distribution simply doesn't work well on a mobile like this (4-6 hours of battery time, even idle)15:48
StskeepsMacer: so we realized why Maemo is constructed the way it is, and decided to analyze what could be done better, the Maemo Reconstructed proposal, and hence Mer was born :P15:48
MacerStskeeps: heh.... yah but i'd honestly choose "desktoplike" over battery life15:49
Stskeepsit's entirely possible to hack Mer to use Fluxbox, fwiw15:49

johnsqjavispedro: you should seperate music and video23:34
pupnikthe only problem with frameskip 1 are the characters that flash every other frame23:34
pupnikit's in the pipeline23:34
javispedroif you want maxspeed try snesadvande.dat, no apu/music, turbo mode and fixed frameskip23:34
javispedroI will put at least all of those options in the gui23:34
lcukjavispedro, when you are using clidia, can you access the full iphone featureset23:35
javispedrolcuk, I don't know, but I'd guess so.23:35
javispedrocydia it's the often talked about "unofficial store" after all:
lcukapps are still developed using the iphone sdk23:37
lcukbut its just a method to get the app running on real hardware without apple approval23:37
javispedroI doubt the iphone sdk uses .deb files though23:37
lcukso its not a full sdk23:37
javispedroand I don't know if the cross-compiler comes with the iphone sdk or does not.23:38
javispedroI mean, the cmd line cross compiler.23:38

guysoft42hi all, is there a way to compile a v4l driver for maemo? i want to get a dvb dongle working on it23:45

*** t_s_o has quit IRC23:48
guysoft42lcuk, also, i am not sure how to play it, since it only runs on vlc23:48
lcukgstreamer has support for showing v4l stuff23:48
lcukthe camera uses it23:49
guysoft42lcuk, how would i run it?23:49
javispedromplayer can also play v4l sources23:49
lcuki dunno, but if your driver is known to gstreamer you can create a (pathway/route/tunnel) thingy (forgot the name) and just push it onto a gtk surface23:49

javispedroguysoft42, we're talking about dvb-t?23:52
javispedrodo you have a channels.conf file?23:53
*** padovan[AWAY] is now known as padovan23:56
*** wazd has quit IRC23:56
javispedrowell, for the record guysoft42, in order to play dvb-t in mplayer you have to put a channels.conf file in ~/.mplayer/ then $ mplayer dvb://"CHANNEL NAME"23:56
javispedrodunno if the maemo mplayer has support for that, hope so.23:57
