ArSanot terribly00:12
zerojayCompared to free?00:13
ArSacompared to TFS :P00:13
zerojayWe're going to be switching from SVN to Perforce at work soon too.00:13
ArSadoesn't seem to be doing much other than SCM, but i guess it does it very well00:14
ArSa(ms used it)00:15
lcukjavispedro, those commits, let me guess, u use a hammer to actually get the build process working00:16
javispedrothat's when my NFS mounted home is so slow make takes a few minutes to just decide what to do.00:17
zerojayPerforce does a lot more than versioning.00:17

*** juliank has quit IRC01:27
qpoiI couldn't find any hands on videos with flash being demonstrated01:27
zerojayGood idea.01:27
andre__qpoi, stable. haven't tried HD though01:27
qwerty12_N810YouTube works fine, but, like Andre, I haven't tried HD01:28
andre__i'll try now01:28
zerojayme too.01:28
ShadowJKHD will be a stretch01:28
qpoiAndre__, what about flash intensive sites?01:28
ShadowJKit's 480p, I think, and the flash players is a very heavy path for video to go through01:29
Stskeepsthe real question is if porn sites work. can't sell well otherwise.01:29
zerojayI'm not running the latest firmware though. Gotta wait for Monday for that. :/01:29
javispedroI will try now too. On my 1998 laptop.01:29

* qwerty12_N810 hides01:31
zerojayYoutube's not 100% smooth, but definitely way better than on N810.01:31
Woollyneed to get to the bottom of why gstreamer wont let me capture at 5fps :(01:31

SpeedEvilandre: Doing what though is the question01:32
SpeedEvilandre: and is minnie involved?01:32
*** jrocha has joined #maemo01:32
qwerty12_N810andre__: Oh, what a novel idea! :)01:32
qpoiabout how many fps is yt running at?01:33
andre__SpeedEvil, not allowed to tell anybody - NDA in place01:33
RST38handre: And what will Donald and Micket do?01:33
zerojayIt's Youtube. I don't know why you would expect any decent FPS anyways.01:33
*** eocanha has joined #maemo01:33
javispedrook. would you all stop conspirating right in front of the public eye01:33
qwerty12_N810zerojay: Yeah, I only go there for the comments...01:33
GeneralAntillesToo bad Flash isn't accelerated.01:34
ShadowJKqwerty12_N810, you're one sick puppy01:34
qwerty12_N810Can't disagree there01:34
qpoiI'll return in a few mins01:34
javispedroqwerty12_N810: don't lie to us. half of all those comments were made by you.01:34
javispedrothe server logs don't lie.01:35
*** qpoi has quit IRC01:35
javispedroI specially like the comment you made in that donald and mickey video...01:35
ShadowJKAtleast the x86 version of flash can use HW accelerated scaling... dunno what adobe has done for N8x0 and N900 :/01:35
* javispedro notices engadget twogibibyteish video finally downloaded.01:36
javispedroShadowJK: I'd bet my fried palmt|x they've made nothing.01:37
Mouseyare n810s out of production now?01:37
javispedroeven though they have a freaking accelerator just designed for accelerating flash there, totally unused.01:38

* ShadowJK ponders trying to get mplayer compiled with VFP again01:38
javispedroShadowJK: the current one isn't ? O.o01:39
ShadowJKthe current one is so old that the vfp code in it didn't exist01:39
javispedrohow cool.01:39
ShadowJKUnfortunately maemo4 scratchbox is also so ancient that it barfs on vfp01:39
javispedroyou mean qemu/cputranps?01:40
javispedroi use fremantle one.01:40
ShadowJKI mean binutils01:40
javispedroas ?01:40

* qwerty12_N810 felt guilty saying "Maymeo" to Jussi :\02:01
*** speedevil is now known as SpeedEvil02:02
javispedroactually, I remember that someone posted it is pronunced like a spaniard would do02:02
*** tbf has quit IRC02:03
*** Sargun has quit IRC02:04
javispedrocuriously enough, /me pronounces it like "mah - eh- mow", which is nowhere near the spanish pronnunciation. :P02:05
javispedro(which would be ma-eh-mo)02:05
*** lpotter has joined #maemo02:06
qwerty12_N810Now that the N900 is black, and the SDK theme too, they should just drop the first two letters and just call it "Emo"02:06
zerojayThese are all things I was worried about with doing a podcast. ;)02:08
*** lbt has quit IRC02:08
* VDVsx facelpam at qwerty12_N810 02:08
* javispedro remembers the m130, where you could smash your fingers through the screen and it would still not detect anything02:08
javispedroah, well. *sigh*02:09
qwerty12_N810"N900: Running on the Linux-powered Emo platform. Comes with a free razor."02:09
RST38hdull razor, too02:10
ShadowJKqwerty12_N810, memeo?02:10
* javispedro likes "Memo 5 Operating System", which literally means "The operating system for idiots"02:11
javispedro(in spanish :P)02:11
bobbydt mobile seem to be offering the n900 in the uk, but thir "fair use" policy forbids IM traffic :/02:11
WoollyI have a gtk.dialog window popup in my full screen app. is there a way I can ignore any mouse events to the screen in the background when the dialog is open?02:11
*** ArSa has joined #maemo02:11
ShadowJKbobbyd, lol what02:11
mavhcbobbyd: does it forbid ssh tunneling?02:11
dottedmagbobbyd: does it formid VPN traffic?02:12
dottedmagmavhc: :)02:12
bobbydit seems pretty restrictive02:12
bobbydmavhc: probably02:12
mavhcit's just their standard terms, can probably ignore it02:12
*** briglia has quit IRC02:12
dottedmagbobbyd: ssh on 443 port and tunnelling.02:12
*** qpoi has joined #maemo02:12
javispedroShadowJK: "memeo" sounds like "I'm pissing myself rigth now".02:12
bobbydwell not if they're blocking standard ports...02:13
javispedroplaying with m you can do such a lot of funny words...02:13
qpoiandre__, zerojay: either of you fellas still here?02:13
mavhcI've not found the catch, but the carrier "3" in uk were offering PAYG with free skype even if you don't top up02:13
andre__qpoi, hmm?02:13
javispedro see? memeo.02:14
zerojayqpoi: Sup?02:14
qpoii was on my phone earlier when i connected here, couldn't type fast enough on the touchpad so i decided to wait until arriving home02:14
qpoianywho, were you two just joshing me? or do you actually have access to some of the test units02:14
bobbyddo you think there's any disadvantage to buying a US model for use in the UK? it's a lot cheaper...02:15
bobbyd(n900 that is)02:15
ShadowJKyou might have to pay UK VAT and import duties02:16
andre__qpoi, i have a test unit.02:16
bobbydandre__: of the n900?02:17
qpoiandre__: could you give me a rough approximation of the frame rate yielded when watching low def youtube?02:17
qpoivia browser02:17
SpeedEvilbobbyd: it's the same price02:17
qwerty12_N810I have the Nokla N900. I couldn't help it, their promo material!...02:17
SpeedEvilbobbyd: if you have to pay import duties and tax.02:17
zerojayqpoi: As I said earlier, asking that question is a bit funny since Youtube's pretty much low fps anyways.02:17
bobbydhmm yes02:17
* javispedro facepalms after watching the jon interview02:18
qpoizerojay: there's a big difference between 5 and 20 fps02:18
SpeedEvilbobbyd: also - there are people offering it on contract - sortof - small internet phone delaers02:18
zerojayqpoi: So it's not always easy to tell if you're seeing low fps because of the video's encoding/capturing or because of the tablet.02:18
javispedrothe interviewer wouldn't have stand a chance with the older palm ceo, ed colligan. ed would have beat the presenter to death02:18
bobbydSpeedEvil: yep, looking there now02:18
SpeedEvil nokia&gclid=CI7E8PeK-pwCFV8B4wodgyBMbg#tabsAnchor - boob02:18
qpoizerojay: the question i'm asking is relative to that of desktop speeds -- not absolute02:19
bobbydyep0 seen that02:19
bobbydI like the t mobile deal, if it's not as restrictive as it seems02:19
bobbydoops :). Get the n900 and unlimited (up to 1GB per month) for 39 quid a month for 12 months and 40 quid up front02:20
bobbydpretty good02:20
qpoizerojay: is it comparable to desktop speeds on yours?02:20
SpeedEvilbobbyd: t-mobile deal?02:20
bobbydSpeedEvil: yep, through that site02:21
SpeedEvilI diddn't see t-mobile02:21
SpeedEvilmaybe they've updated since I last looked02:21
SpeedEvilwas just voda02:22
bobbydyou have to click the tabs at the bottom02:22
*** vivijim has quit IRC02:22
bobbydthen select pay monthly02:22
SpeedEvilIIRC the cheapest through voda 'SIM free' - well - it comes with a voda 'simplicity' SIM - was 39602:22
*** Mousey has quit IRC02:23
SpeedEvilWhich works out to - comparing with the contract - 6/mo for the contract - the network connection part02:23
SpeedEvilwhich isn't too bad02:23
bobbydright, but then you don't have mobile web...02:23
*** schrod has quit IRC02:25
bobbydthe t-mobile deal is £90 more for unlimited web for a year, so £7.5 a month, which is pretty good02:27
ShadowJKqpoi, got an N8x0?02:29
bobbydactually, missed an extra £40 there, so it's about a tenner02:29
bobbydandre__: tell me one thing, is it as good as it seems from the videos?02:29
SpeedEvilCheck the extras - IIRC t-mobile were throwing in free wifi access or something02:30
andre__bobbyd, that's a very vague question02:31
bobbydandre__: ok, do you feel any of the features have been misrepresented, and don't live up to the hype?02:32
andre__i in general have issues with such open questions. e.g. define "the videos". i think i haven't seen all of them02:32
andre__and the latest hardware that's going to be sold is definitely better than what's around here02:33
*** hap has left #maemo02:34
javispedrowhy, why, why on earth doesn't HildonCheckButton inherit from GtkToggleButton, or even better, GtkCheckButton.02:34
andre__javispedro, wasn't there a bug report about that?02:35
*** bobbyd has quit IRC02:35
javispedroandre__, right, as usual :)02:35
andre__in short: because it's too late to break api02:35
javispedroWONTFIX. *sigh* well.02:35
andre__in long: yeah, very stupid to not think about it in the beginning02:36

zelrikriandoso quiet here06:31
johnxa little06:32
johnxit is a friday after all06:32
johnxand it's a little early for the EU people still06:32
johnxhad a question?06:32
zelrikriandoI guess I am a nolife06:32
zelrikriandothat might be the answer06:32
zelrikriandohmm actually yes I do06:32
johnxwell, I'm here on a friday night too06:32
*** hellwolf-n810 has joined #maemo06:33
zelrikriandois maemo set to be on other devices than tablets/phones?06:33
johnxthat's one of those questions that seems pretty clear cut06:33
zelrikriandoI think I am also asking if maemo is nokia only06:33
johnxI don't think nokia is strongly pushing it that direction right now, but it is open source06:33
zelrikriandobut nobody has 'stolen' the code yet to make a port06:34
johnxand there's a project called the mer project which takes the open parts of maemo (the ui mostly) and rebases it on debian/ubuntu06:34
GeneralAntilleszelrikriando, Nokia appears to have no interest in licensing it at the moment.06:35
GeneralAntilleszelrikriando, the closest thing is, as johnx says, Mer.06:35
zelrikriandoit'd be nice if it can expand to more hardware :)06:35
johnxand mer does aim to be source-package compatible in most of the ways that matter06:35
infobotmer is, like,, or on #mer06:35
johnxzelrikriando, what device are you thinking?06:36
GeneralAntillesMer is basically Maemo without Nokia's closed differentiation stuff on top.06:36
zelrikriandojohnx: netbooks/smartbooks or laptops even06:36
johnxwell...maemo/mer is really optimized for touch based interfaces on smallish screens06:36
GeneralAntillesHonestly it's not really appropriate for that.06:36
johnxI can't picture it being all that fun on a netbook06:37
GeneralAntillesTouch doesn't translate well to trackpad/keyboard.06:37
GeneralAntillesBut Moblin may be more what you're looking for.06:37
johnxor ubuntu unr06:37
johnxbig fan of that myself :)06:37
GeneralAntillesBoth, so far, mostly seem like Clutter demos. ;)06:37
johnxGeneralAntilles, except that one has a real distro behind it ;)06:38
zelrikriandoI d need to consider unr06:38
zelrikriandoon my laptop06:38
johnxon a real laptop, ubuntu is pretty nice06:38
GeneralAntillesMoblin's being slightly more impressive than Ubuntu's, but the whole Fedora thing. . . .06:38
zelrikriandoI am running Linux Mint right now06:38
johnxdunno what to tell you06:38
johnxgrass always looks greener on the other side I guess06:39
zelrikriandoI dont like fedora/rpm stuff06:39
zelrikriandoI am just interested in trying new stuff I guess06:39
zelrikriandobeing bored on my gnome :D06:39
* johnx decided boring was good for his main machine06:40
luke-jrzelrikriando: I'm running KDE 4.3 on my N81006:40
johnxyou should try that BeOS-alike: Haiku OS06:40
zelrikriandolet me look it up06:40
zelrikriandolooks very minimalist06:42
zelrikriandoluke-jr: I have had bad experience with KDE 3.506:42
luke-jrI have terrible experience with GNOME06:43
johnxhad a bad experience with avocado dip once :/06:43
zelrikriandoby bad, I mean very bad06:43
luke-jrzelrikriando: KDE is basically a semi-rewrite with every major version06:44
johnxsick to your stomach for half a day?06:44
zelrikriandolike downloading a gnome-based distro in the middle of the night to fix my computer06:44
luke-jrzelrikriando: fail06:44
johnxdesktop wars means, I should have dinner instead :P06:44
luke-jrjohnx: what do you think of the new Zaurus?06:44
johnxluke-jr, that's a good question06:45
johnxon the one hand I kinda hate sharp06:45
johnxand I'm sad to see them drop the good keyboard, as well as the convertible tablet form factor06:45
johnxbut it looks so nice. and so freaking fast for an ARM06:46
luke-jrjohnx: I'm pondering hacking up a custom handheld with the SoC06:47
luke-jrapplied for the developer program :)06:48
*** epilido has joined #maemo06:48
johnxwhich SoC?06:48
luke-jrFreescale i.MX51506:49
johnxdunno. do you have connections to someone who can make the case?06:50
epilidojust install the fremantle sdk  How do I get it to save the repositories so I can try some of the extrasprograms06:50
luke-jrjohnx: maybe I will hack it into my C760 :p06:51
GeneralAntillesPandora - Redux: The Reckoning06:51
johnxluke-jr, hack it into a broken Psion 506:51
johnxbetter keyboard, more screen space06:52
luke-jrI love my C760's kb06:52
luke-jrgood point on screen size tho06:52
johnxwhat I really want is for one of those hybrid black+white/color LCDs to show up in something running linux06:52

johnxah, right08:10
johnxyeah, and the i486 for older Macs08:10
luke-jrthey still do08:10
johnxthis would be really darn cool in a linux system, with X11 over a totally "local" network08:10
johnxI want two core2duo systems though08:10
johnxnot a core2 and an atom :/08:10
johnxis that the one running linux?08:12
johnxkinda neat I s'pose08:12
ShadowJKimagine if you had like virtualization, and could migrate system image from one CPU to the other08:12
johnxI want it the other way around though, with the lower power machine being the master08:13
ShadowJKor if you ran on it08:13
johnxI really like the physical separation, especially separating the I/O08:15

johnxqwerty12 just headed out the door to buy one :P08:24
ShadowJKsomehow the use of the word "free" in that context makes me cringe :)08:25
johnxstill, lots of people were asking for it08:26
johnxprobably mostly USians though08:26
johnxthough in the US we don't get a break for going month to month08:26
ShadowJKoperators here haven't yet managed to make it complicated enough without users crying foul and jumping ship08:27
ShadowJKcomplicated enough for users not to figure out how much the operator is really subsidizing, I mean08:27
johnxand the 30GBP/month isn't really *more* than we'd be paying in USD for the same services08:27
*** trbs has quit IRC08:28
johnxso that leaves a 16month commitment, which would be fine for me since the phone will only get 3G in the US with t-mo anyways08:28
* ShadowJK checks if his operator has "productized" n900 yet08:29
ShadowJKthe CEO promised in the forums that it's coming :-(08:29
johnxeh, it'll get it in more hands08:30
johnxand really, for some people it is actually a better deal08:30
johnxphones subsidized by contract08:31
ShadowJKI wonder if I should preorder from nokia or wait for general availability :x08:34
johnxwell, it's already down ~60USD from amazon.com08:34
johnxi bet it's 550GBP a couple weeks after launch08:35
*** n6pfk has quit IRC08:39
ShadowJKwell there'll certainly be competition on the margin amongst retailers08:40
ShadowJKbut I don't see nokia dropping the price for many months08:41
johnxah, hmm08:41
johnxactually that makes sense08:41
johnxmaybe a price drop in january08:41
ShadowJKWith N97 they were dropping the price because there wasn't really much hype and/or demand..08:42
ShadowJKSeems like N900 is going to be supply limited for a few months08:42
ShadowJKIt would just be stupid with a price cut when people are queueing to get their devices :)08:42
johnxi doubt it'll be constantly sold out or anything like that08:43
johnxanyways, I think I might actually sleep for once this week08:43

Corsackirma: the thing is, if I understand correctly the 5-steps plan Nokia has, for the 4th step there should be some marketing done, before the release13:55

*** Dantonic has quit IRC13:56
SpeedEvilAlso - bad topic13:56
SpeedEvilmost people won't have heard of most of the keywords13:56
lbtI notice the Ts&Cs for PUSH include "and Nokia may publish the material free of charge and/or incorporate it or any concepts described in it in our products without accountability or liability"  "and you agree to indemnify us if any third party takes action against us in relation to the material you submit."13:57
* SpeedEvil finds out that lcuk is ugly.13:57
SpeedEvillbt: that generally means if you ripped something off - or infringed a patent.13:57
Stskeepslbt: fairly normal i think13:57
SpeedEvillbt: So do a full patent search before submitting.13:58
lcuklbt, hows that work with the announced hardware hacks using TM and C material13:58
lbtit would be if PUSH were a GPL type thing...13:58
lcukspeak n spell, viewmaster rolodex etc13:58
lbtbut I got the feeling PUSH was more on the commercial side...13:58
lbtor at least had that aspect...13:58
lcukits for use in a storefront installation13:58
lcukso yeah its gonna be commercial13:59
lbtso "give us your cool ideas and we'll take 'em and make money - thanks"13:59
lbtjust wondering out loud13:59
lcukbut it gives the opportunity for the teams to be brought together, given resources and help to produce a top class design and showcase it for the world :)13:59
lbtSpeedEvil: the thing about contracts is not what they are for, but what they say.14:00
lcukin open source we rarely get the opportunity to bring our ideas through because of funding issues.  this removes that barrier and gives people valuable pathway to commercial bespoke artistic installations :)14:01
SpeedEvillbt: yes - I know - the above comment wasn't totally serious.14:01
lcuklbt, the art of open source :)14:01
SpeedEvilAs a full patent search for non-trivial software is going to cost you _lots_.14:01
lbtso I just noticed and thought I'd mention it...14:01
lbtlcuk: so it would be nice for them to say they'd consider open-hardware-ing suitable projects...14:02
lcukwell the projects ARE being pushed to use open hardware14:02
lbtheh - you know I'm not a fanatic...14:03
lcukthe arduino project is an open spec microcomputer controller for exactly this14:03
lcukits the sort of stuff that would cost thousands of pounds in my school days, but you can use it to hook up cool stuff14:03
* lcuk is gonna be making all sorts of things soon14:03
lcukthe last hardawre hack i made was ripping a mouse apart and using the motion sensors in a double pendulum14:04
kirmacorsac: I thought the fourth step really refers to N900 with Maemo 5, and fifth step is Qt platform (on Maemo 6 and others)14:04
lardmanhow do I create a callback using glib? I want to stop my command line program after e.g. 10s14:05
lcukkirma, the 5th step involves a chorus of whatever technologies it needs to connect us :)14:05
* lbt wants his N900 to have a thermostat14:05
* lcuk believes its the only harmonious way possible14:05
lbtso it knows whether I'm cold and to turn the heating on14:05
lbt(of course, it would help to know I'm at home too)14:05
lardmanit probably has one on the die....14:05
SpeedEvillbt: I think it does have a CPU thermostat prolly14:06
kirmait pretty certainly has a temperature sensor... on the battery14:06
lbthmm run at idle and work out ambient...14:06
SpeedEvilAnyway - simply write code to detect shivering.14:06
lcuksamppa, do these heartrate monitors include thermometers?14:06
lcukspeedevil, the heating will come on when you are idy reading the articles of playboy14:06
lbtdelta heat change over time14:06
Corsackirma: yeah but as I understood it, 4th step should see a broader audience14:06
lbtgives a measure of ambient I guess14:06
kirmayes... but that's not this device yet, I think.14:07
lcukhahah it appears on the firehose and is blue!14:08
* lcuk doesnt know what blue means14:08
lcukbut its there now :D14:08
kirmacorsac: just the idea that I got was that fifth step occurs with maemo 6... well, maybe it's also N900, but most certainly other devices too14:09
lardmanno thoughts on a timer callback?14:09
* lcuk nods at kirma14:11
kirmacorsac: but I've heard *some* rumors of potential marketing ramp-up around next week or something. but it's far from a fact, and especially far from undisputed one :)14:12
lcukdigital harmony would be desired.  old, new, big, small - bringing us closer.14:12
lardmanah g_timer14:12
Corsackirma: what I mean is mass marketing starts at *fourth* step14:15
Corsac== n90014:15
SpeedEvilA scary thing for nokia is to get a large userbase using maemo5, understanding it, nice app-store, and then every maker in china can directly compete with a 100% identical OS running the same apps that the users understand.14:15
*** cyndis has joined #maemo14:16
kirmacorsac: ah14:16
kirmathe non-nokia manufacturers are bound to be on trailing edge on software, and write the "critical" 20% of software themself anyway, and they have serious issues maintaining any sort of customer confidence regarding product quality (basically, their customers don't expect to have any consumer rights after the purchase)14:18
kirma(but that doesn't matter if the device is cheap enough)14:18
kirmathere are pretty good reasons why nokia doesn't opensource everything14:19

Stskeepsbut yes, to be ahead14:23

crashanddie_unixSnob, how is accelerometer multimedia or i/o intensive?18:09
lardmanunixSnob: don;t worry, he's only needling you18:09
unixSnobcrashanddie_: an accelerometer is an input device18:09
* lcuk just prefers on device stuff18:09
crashanddie_unixSnob, how is it intensive?18:09
unixSnobconstant input, realtime18:09
unixSnobit's a continuous stream of input18:10
crashanddie_not if you wrap it :P18:10
crashanddie_separate thread, listening, callback methods to indicate specific actions18:10
unixSnobcrashanddie_: indeed that's what I would do, if i needed it for something18:11
unixSnobcrashanddie_: but i don't need an accelerometer for my apps18:11
crashanddie_unixSnob, what apps are you considering?18:11
unixSnobcrashanddie_: very simple stuff to start.  My first one will be 'hello world'.  Followed by a timecard app or something.  And something to sync with a mutt contact db18:12

ccookelcuk: final hardware, don't care about software. I'm wondering how feasible it would be to add a magnetometer to it.18:42
ccookeWhich basically means "is there enough space"18:42
lcukwhen does one hardware variation become final tho18:42
lcukand would those users know its final18:43
fralswhen mass production has begun, imho18:43
lcuki would love for there to be a magnetometer in here18:43
ccookelcuk: well, if they don't know it's final then they can't say "I have a final one". Which means I'd have to wait all of a few weeks. ]18:43
lcukyeah but when would a tester know if its final or not18:43
lardmanRST38h: and if the value is == 0, is that good or bad?18:43
lardmanshould be good18:43
lcukccooke, the ones shown in all the media and videos - is there a difference between them?18:44
*** X-Fade has quit IRC18:44
ccookeBasically, I'm wondering if it's reasonable to know now that it *might* be doable (in which case I'll order a magenetomer or five next month, because they're not that expensive) or if it's unknown (in which case, I'll wait until I can play with my n900 when it arrives)18:44

*** X-Fade_ has quit IRC18:45
*** X-Fade has joined #maemo18:46
ccookelcuk: the benefits wouldn't really be much unless quite a few people had one, to be honest18:46
lcukexplain - i love hardware and would really benefit from knowing direction18:46
lardmanccooke: do you have an url for these compasses?18:46
lcukit would help with lots of gps free in the dark missions18:46
lardmanRST38h: "No such file or directory" is an odd error message, as the device file is already open18:47
ccookewThe way I see it, it all depends on how easy adding one is. If it's easy enough, it'd be simple to post instructions and, possibly, provide an upgrade service for people.18:48
ccookeif it's difficult, that's not really going to be plausible, even if it *can* be done.18:48
ccookeif one or two people have it, then it's highly unlikely there'll be any software that uses it - and even then, it's unlikely anyone would care18:49
* lardman decides to output raw errno18:49
ccookelardman: the components aren't exactly difficult to find. Here's one set:
ccookelardman: note that some are less than 10mm square18:50
lardmanah, I thought this was a Bluetooth module or something like that18:50
ccookehmm, that would certainly be easier18:52

ccookeluke-jr: for some people, the sq5 will be too big. for others, too small. For some, just right. For me, it's too small for a shirt pocket and too flimsy-looking for a trouser pocket, so I'd skip it.19:04
ccooke(and my bag usually contains a 17" laptop, so there's no real point in me having anything else I can't carry on my person)19:06
luke-jrccooke: Is SQ5 as big as the PC-Z1?19:06
luke-jrapparently not19:07
luke-jryet they both claim 5"19:07
luke-jrccooke: I don't carry a bag, so I want the biggest that will reasonably fit in my pocket19:08

Firebirdwell, when you touch the screen a second time it quickly moves the cursor to a new location between the two touches, if the hypotenuse of that relative movement is greater than threshold value X, calculate scale by the hypotenuse of current mouse position to mouse click position divided by the hypotenuse value of the position where the relative movement .....this is hard to explain19:25

braindump03luke-jr: Well, okay. Which WM?20:59
VDVsxdneary, probably, I tried to avoid moving already accepted proposals, but there's a couple of slots left in the BoF room20:59

braindump03luke-jr: Yep. But what other OS? :/ Maemo is missing some features, i need21:05

dneary5 accepted lightning talks21:07
dneary1 accepted BOF21:07
dneary6 wait and see21:07
dneary4 probably rejected21:07
luke-jrbraindump03: Gentoo+KDE is the closest21:07
dnearyIn the probably accepted, 2 presentations will be merges21:07
braindump03I think, Gentoo + IceWM is closer. But It's not very finger friendly, is it?21:07
VDVsxdneary, humm, waiting for me, I thought I voted in everything in the other day, gonna check21:08
VDVsxdneary, ah ok, there's one, can I vote now or you are editing ?21:09
dnearyWith the state of the schedule, we have 8 presentation slots open, enough lightning talk slots if everyone accepts,21:10
dnearyLet me save first21:10
dnearySaved - refresh21:10
dneary2 presentations missing your comments: high res imaging and test framework tool21:11
keesjdneary: Are we fine on content? do we need more content?21:11
dnearykeesj: We need less ;)21:11
dnearyI think we were too generous with early proposals21:11
dnearyBut there was some pressure from people: "why is the schedule empty? The nokia day is full already")21:12
dnearySo we ended up not keeping enough slots for the last minute rush of high quality proposals from BNokia people when they got their travel funding approved21:12
dnearyIt would have been better if they propose first, and let us know after if they couldn't come21:12
VDVsxdneary, I also have doubts about the high res proposal :(21:13
VDVsxlet me see21:13
dnearyI tend to agree with Quim's analysis of a few of the talks we can move21:14

VDVsxdneary, I would say yes, despite my previous considerations about this talk, at least seems much more suitable than the other one proposed by the same guy21:27
lcukcan i reasonably ask - why on day 1 do the ui design stuff and the ui panel collide.  isnt it sensible to expect a person wanting to go to one would want to see both21:28

braindump03Yeah, but how to install Gentoo onto the flash instead of the internal mmc?21:35
luke-jrbraindump03: uh, I've done neither21:35
braindump03Yup, this one21:35
luke-jryou didn't say flash root :p21:35
slonopotamusbraindump03, flash? 128mb?21:35

braindump03Because I do not have MiniSD at the moment ;)21:35
