AStormI wonder if nokia will include better earphones and iPhone-compatible 4-pole jack00:12
AStormeven those iRivier-class Cresyns are many leagues better than what nokia gave00:12
javispedroah, people....00:13
AStormI suspect they could arrange something00:13
javispedro"MAriokart psp 28-30 fps all the time at frameskip 1" and he's impressed, like if he was not forcing the emu to make it or die trying.00:13
*** VDVsx has joined #maemo00:13
AStormframeskip 1 is 15 fps, duh00:13
javispedroit's 30 on the emu they're using.00:13
AStormthat's no skip00:14
*** woglinde has quit IRC00:14
javispedroit is, the ntsc snes is 60fps.00:14
AStormah, right00:14
AStormso it's nice00:14
AStormon LCD, there will be no diff anyway00:14
javispedroso it's doing exactly as it told the emu to do, and is using that as some kind of benchmark.00:14
johnsqmodern consoles have problems doing such frame rates.00:14
javispedroit's no really comparable.00:15
*** Sargun has joined #maemo00:15
javispedroon the emu side, the blanking interrupt occurs 1/60, end of story.00:15
javispedrothat does not mean the game updates the screen each frame00:15
AStormbut many other things are tied to vsync00:16
johnsqjavispedro: I know the problems, I have written an emulator long ago.00:16
AStormso framedrop cuts load on the video emu00:16
AStormpity even modern cpus can't run that dosbox with hq3x00:17
*** pablo_ has quit IRC00:18
AStormthose interpolators that look... epic00:18
*** coldboot has quit IRC00:18
javispedrobut i meant that I don't know if all snes games update the screen at 60fps00:18
javispedromuch like modern games.00:18
AStormeven if they don't, the emu has to check the framebuffer00:18
johnsqjavispedro: normal scrolling is done by hardware with full rate00:18
AStormscale and push it to the screen00:18
AStormyeah, that can be simply halved too00:19
javispedrojohnsq, true.00:19
javispedroi'm trying to understand why I get exactly the same performance than on the gp2x, even though the n8x0 has a bit better proc.00:20
AStorma bit better than what?00:20
AStormthan n800? it does not.00:20
AStorm*it has not00:21
javispedrothe n8x0 has a better proc than the gp2x.00:21
javispedrothe gp2x being arm9 (don't remember the freqs right now)00:21
AStormthat's just insn set00:21
AStormnot necessarily performance00:21
johnsqjavispedro: you are using x11?00:21
AStormyou have to use Xv00:22
javispedrojohnsq, yep, but Xomap is taking only <10% toll.00:22
AStormI wonder though, why so few apps use Xv as output00:22
AStormnot even SDL has such an option00:22
lcukbecause its YUV00:23
AStorm(for sw rendering)00:23
lcukand a brainfuck00:23
johnsqjavispedro: you can try to use the framebuffer direct.00:23
AStormah, right00:23
AStormforgot about the BF aspects00:23
lcukwell, i think theres an rgb mode coming/in last update00:23
lcukframebuffer direct causes its own issues00:23
AStormlcuk, since you're so nice, could you write an SDL driver?00:23
AStormthen everyone would profit00:23
*** ceyusa has joined #maemo00:23
javispedroSDL can already use XV00:24
javispedroif I output YUV00:24
javispedrojust like lcuk said ;)00:24
AStormit *can*?00:24
*** setanta has joined #maemo00:24
javispedrothat's what I am reading, never tested tho.00:24
AStormlcuk, I get the feeling you've wasted a lot of time coding liqbase :P00:25
*** hellwolf has quit IRC00:25
* lcuk started at SDL00:25
javispedrogoogle SDL_CreateYUVOverlay xv00:25
lcukcreating an overlay and having all the rendering functions from sdl work on it are two very different and large differences00:25
javispedroSDL has rendering functions ? ;)00:26
javispedroonly that I believe (unless you pull sdl_gfx)00:26
lcukbut, thats an intruiging proposition, because if i can use an sdl surface from SDL, it opens up the possiblity of a windows port :)00:26
lcukyou also have to load the media and convert to yuv00:27
javispedrodon't get too excited, maybe the maemo sdl is borked/too old/slow :P00:27
lcuki have what i need in xv00:27
lcukim not excited00:27
AStormlcuk, there are functions to do so there00:27
AStormand you can even plug in hardware conversion routines00:27
VDVsxwow, another brand with a in-house Linux, o_000:28
AStormactually, sdl-image will autoconvert to surface format00:28
*** dforsyth has joined #maemo00:28
AStormjavispedro, not unfixable, at least00:29
AStormffs, someone should write cairo sdl backend00:29
AStormso that we can run gtk on framebuffer00:29
javispedroah, you mean a _cairo_ backend, not a sdl backend :P00:30
lcukyou can anyway00:30
javispedroi understood the other way firstly ;)00:30
lcukruns gtk00:30
AStormgtk directfb port is... ugh00:30
lcukthe best you are gonna get :)00:30
*** GAN800 has quit IRC00:30
* javispedro will just make a build without the SDL_UpdateRect call to confirm X11 is not the biggest bottleneck now.00:30
AStormand also, sdl port would allow (ab)use of opengl accel00:31
AStormbetter than the old glitz00:31
*** wazd has quit IRC00:31
lcukis there a linux filesystem snooper that i can turn on, store list of all opened files whilst running, then when i disable it, dump that list somewhere00:31
AStorminotify-watch or tripwire00:32
javispedroor plain strace -e open?00:32
lcukok, ill reask :P (thanks)00:32
AStormactually, inotify will be better00:32
johnsqlcuk: I use strace00:32
lcukis there a maemo filesystem snooper that i can turn on, store list of all opened files whilst running, then when i disable it, dump that list somewhere00:32
javispedroinotify is on maemo, btw.00:32
lcukyeah :) i use it for somethings00:32
javispedroa few days ago I played with it, the file manager makes extensive use of it.00:32
lcuki'd forgotten that00:32
lcukbut i have to tell it a folder dont i00:32
AStormyes, it is.00:32
AStormand it works00:32
AStormyeah, /00:33
javispedrobut you want open files, even if they're just opened for readonly, never written00:33
javispedrodon't you ? :P00:33
lcukand i want it from everywhere00:33
AStormhurray for VFS00:33
lcuknot just a specific folder00:33
lcukmind you, i could ..00:33
AStormso you watch /00:34
*** LinuxCode has quit IRC00:34
lcukohhh, it does subfolders too00:34
* lcuk learns something new00:34
*** halves has quit IRC00:35
javispedrobut inotify fires events for opened files?00:35
javispedroor just modified?00:35
* javispedro shuts the mouth. (IN_OPEN and IN_CLOSE )00:35
lcuknow, to write something that uses those and tracks them00:37
*** ceyusa has quit IRC00:38
* javispedro remembers he can't see the framerate if he disables video output :P00:39
AStormjavispedro, both00:40
AStormit depends what you request00:40
javispedroyep, yep, already rtfm'd :P00:40
AStormlcuk, there's a command line app with a text output00:41
AStormwhat was it called...00:41
AStormjust dumps the events in text format00:41
AStormif you're lazy and know python, python-inotify is available (in almost recent version) on the tablet00:42
AStormit's like 8 lines to use it00:42
AStormand just dump the events to text00:42
AStorm(this older version doesn't have loop method, so you use the *_events ones)00:44
*** Andy80 has joined #maemo00:45
lbt.log now have SmartQ Firmware extractor (in a few lines of perl)00:45
javispedrothe SDL_UpdateRect call costs 1fps in average.00:45
AStormcompared to what?00:47
AStormpure Xv?00:47
*** Sargun has quit IRC00:47
javispedrono SDL_UpdateRect.00:47
*** Sargun has joined #maemo00:47
AStormheh, no updaterect = no drawing00:47
javispedrothus no XPutImage, thus no copying of the framebuffer.00:48
*** herzi has quit IRC00:48
javispedro*to the framebuffer.00:48
johnsqjavispedro: you shouldn't need to do updateRect, you should use shared memory00:48
AStormX11 is slow, yes00:48
johnsqAStorm: X11 isn't slow, its the developers00:48
AStormyeah, actually, omapfb devs00:49
javispedrobut Xomap isn't the root cause of all slowness in the world.00:49
AStormfriggin implement exa00:49
AStormwith softupdates00:49
javispedro1fps is hardly noticeable.00:49
AStormit is if it's 25 fps vs 24 fps00:50
lcukno, thats not the breakpoint surely00:50
johnsqjavispedro: have you disabled sound?00:50
AStorm15 vs 14 is even more visible00:50
lcukits when you are really struggling for frames00:50
lcukive noticed users can happily live with 20fps00:51
javispedrojohnsq, yep, I did both "benchmarks" (they aren't) without00:51
lbtdoes inotify work for files in /sys ?00:51
lcukInotify monitoring of directories is not recursive: to monitor subdirectories under a directory, additional watches must be created.00:52
*** MrGoose has left #maemo00:52
AStormlbt, yes00:52
AStormlcuk, *but* there's a way to do it00:53
lcuklbt, could be dangerous00:53
lcukbut also nice way to watch for cpu changes :O00:53
AStormyou make a walk to set the watches00:53
AStormthen grab the new dirs too00:53
lcukbut that becomes a new watch and doesnt that need its own select()/thread prcessing00:54
AStormthere's one select, since there's only one inotify file00:55
AStormas opposed to dnotify, which required more selects/threads00:55

mecaveatsHmm...Is it  a good project to do as a university project?08:51
johnxgetting bluetooth working inside the emulator?08:52
mecaveatsAlso allowing bluetooth networking between two instances of emulator?08:52 should probably try and talk to Nokia about that one08:52
*** Vulcanis has joined #maemo08:53
mecaveatsI want to contribute to community :-)08:53
johnxfirst you need to look a bit more closely at exactly how the "emulator" works. it's not exactly a full "system" emulator in the strictest sense08:55
johnxyou're talking about the fremantle beta SDK I assume?08:56
mecaveatsok, I will look at it.08:58
mecaveatsmaemo emulator uses Qemu na?09:00
Luke-Jrwell, johnx said not a real emu, so I thought maybe a chroot+Xnest09:00
Luke-Jranyhow, it'd be a N8x0 emulator, not a Maemo emulator :þ09:01
mecaveatsSo does it support bluetooth?09:01
Luke-Jrdunno, sorry09:01
Luke-Jrmecaveats: honestly, I think even better would be an open source firmware for the Bluetooth ;)09:03
tigertit is not really a "device emulator"09:04
Luke-Jrbut that might go along with an emulator09:04
Luke-Jrtigert: qemu is09:04
tigertit lets you run arm binaries with qemu09:04
*** rkirti has joined #maemo09:04
tigertqemu is, yeah, at least sbox stuff doesnt let you use bluetooth and such because those are in your host system09:04
tigertI guess it might be possible to make it work somehow, but the benefits of debugging are kinda interesting if you are not sure if the problem is in your application code or in the emulator layer :)09:05
mecaveatsActually, I want to emulate a "non-existing" Bluetooth.09:05
johnxmecaveats, there's two ways to use qemu, as a full "system" emulator where it runs a linux kernel on up and a "user mode" emulator where it translates binaries so you can chroot into a distro for a foreign arch09:05
tigertwhen you try to debug something09:05

lbtmecaveats: to emulate bluetooth wouldn't you need to provide something like a kernel driver as used in VMs for virtual ethernet drivers?09:11

meboredThe baseband and the radio layer.09:12
meboredAnd the stack will sit on top of them.09:12

*** ab[out] is now known as ab09:15
Luke-Jrlooking at qemu src, I think Bluetooth is already being emulated to some degree09:17
johnxbut it depends on whether you're using qemu "the system emulator" or qemu "the user mode emulator"09:18
meboredJohnx, I agree.09:18
meboredBut it looks more like only pass through is supported.09:18
johnxand scratchbox/maemoSDK is the latter09:18
meboredSo unless you have the hardware.09:18
meboredYou cant really use bluetooth.09:18
meboredIt is basically a bridge to the hardware on host machine.09:19

javispedro(-O3, btw, performs same as -Os but with an unsanely large binary)14:49
RST38hDid not get any speedup =( But found that the only thing the speed depends on is the number of memory accesses per pixel14:49
RST38hjavis: How do you do color conversion?14:49
RST38hfrom 15bpp SNES to 16bpp Nokia I mean?14:50
javispedroRST38h, :#define BUILD_PIXEL2_RGB565(R,G,B) (((int) (R) << 11) | ((int) (G) << 5) | (int) (B))14:51
javispedroprobably says nothing, I did not touch that DrPocketSNES part.14:51

tigertsince the phone would be in your pocket, while the level rule would be in the garage :)14:55
javispedroRST38h: red = PPU.CGDATA [i] & 0x1f  green = (PPU.CGDATA [i] >> 5) & 0x1f blue = (PPU.CGDATA [i] >> 10) & 0x1f14:55

RST38hjavis: Oh14:56
RST38hjavis: You have got your improvement right there14:57
Jaffatigert: Yeah, agreed.14:57
RST38hjavis: write an assembly inline function that converts i => PPU.CGData[i] -> Nokia 565 pixel directly14:57

javispedrosetting paletted SDL output results in funny colors. I don't remember If it worked originally...14:59
tigert < totally offtopic, but this is so cute :D15:00
javispedroah, sorry. No, it didn't work. Tile rendering uses a palette, but then there's all those blends and transparencies the SNES can do which need 15 bit color.15:00
pupnik_i am running palletted mode for a NES emu btw... kind of a pita15:00
RST38hgentlemen, you do all understand that the NIT has no paletted mode natively?15:02
RST38hSo whatever you enable in SDL will still be simulated, at unknown additional performance cost15:02
javispedroyes yes :) it was a bit faster because the famous GFX "bottleneck" function needs to do half the writes15:03
javispedrobut only around +4fps, that's about it.15:03
tigertJaffa: accelerometers are fun15:04
tigertJaffa: I like the sports tracker on my s60 phone, it uses accelerometers to record steps15:05
tigertthere is also a dedicated step counter app15:05
javispedrobasically, the Mode7 bottleneck is a nearly complete rasterizer, z-buffer included. it had so many variables that the first time I tried to rewrite in asm I run out of registers (even tho I merged 2 char and 3 bool variables in one register)15:05

javispedroI don't know if they're going to be no-phones.15:18
RST38hDo notice that the current Maemo cannot operate in resolutions different from 800x48015:18
RST38hOk, it can *almost* operate at different resolutions but not quite, so whatever Nokia releases right away will still have 800x480, no more and ABSOLUTELY no less15:18
javispedro^^^ agreed, making it anything different would kill some extras applications.15:19
javispedro(and even most nokia ones)15:19
RST38hit will even kill some Nokia apps15:19
javispedrospecially now that in fremantle dialogs are now fullscreen too.15:20
lcukRST38h, doesnt that bode not so well for using qt to share between high def maemo and lowdef s6015:20
javispedro(fullscreen width)15:20
* RST38h curses at the mention of fremantle dialogs15:20
lcukor is qt the answer to that problem15:20

RST38hlcuk: Have not seen Qt based Symbian too, so who knows15:20
lcukno, but app  wise15:20
RST38hQt is not the answer to flexible resolution problem15:20

qwerty12_N810Ah well, they've already shrunk the screen size to make the Rover a phone so they may not mess with the resolution anyway...15:25
RST38hqwerty: but they will have to mess with resolutions for two reasons:15:26
RST38hqwerty: 1) if they do decide on producing Maeom based netbooks/MIDs15:26
RST38hqwerty: 2) if they decide to produce lower-specced cheaper Maemophones15:26

javispedrothere are nearly 4 families of renderers: the PocketSNES family (PocketSNES, DrPocketSNES -- accurate but not the fastest), the OpenSnes9x one (SquidgeSNES, snes9xTYL for PSP -- faster), the SNESAdvance one (fastest but pretty much unusable for anything non-GBA), and the upstream snes9x one.18:43
javispedroalso, LJP (usable on tablets with GVM) is from the OpenSnes9x family.18:46

fiferboysnes9x was very usable on the Zaurus18:47
javispedrojohnsq, already done by pupnik_. slower than drpocketsnes.18:47
javispedro(take care OpenSnes9x != snes9x, the former's maintaned by yoyofr for the PSP only AFAIK).18:49

javispedroalso, snes4iphone is from the drpocketsnes family.18:49
* javispedro dislikes roaming around the gp2x and the like boards, they're hard to navigate, they like to show videos instead of source code, and every license is more complicated than the previous one.18:50

mgedmindigg doesn't have threads?19:33
Jaffabenno2: check your /etc/resolv.conf in scratchbox19:33
mgedminbenno2: IIRC there used to be two different resolv.conf files in scratchbox: one in /etc, the other in /scratchbox/etc19:34
mgedminfixing them both (making them look the same as /etc/resolv.conf outside scratchbox) tends to help19:34

mgedminand then your host os will proxy dns requests for your scratchbox19:39
benno2mgedmin, thanks for the tip about dnsmasq.19:40
benno2about Qt4,  if I want to compile a Qt4 app. should I compile Qt4 from source in the maemo sdk or are there precompiled packages ? an apt-cache search qt did not return any result19:41
