GiantTalkingCowAny IRC clients currently running on Freemantle?01:05
jaem_n900I just called Rogers to ask about data plans, and the rep pulled a Verizon01:05
lcukbut i notice after an evening with it, its not perfect01:05
mikkov__pidgin too01:05
lcukwhen i minimize to tray, where does it go?01:05
GeneralAntilleslcuk, lol.01:05
GeneralAntilleslcuk, that's not XChat's fault.01:06
lcuknever said it was01:06
GiantTalkingCowAlready ported, is it? Thanks.01:06
GeneralAntilleslcuk, there's no support for that built-in in Fremantle.01:06
lcukits a legit question tho, where does it go and how do i get it back01:06
GeneralAntillesIt gets minimized01:06
GeneralAntillesBut the hildon statusbar doesn't support that functionality01:06
lcukcant it become a tray icon thingy01:06
*** boogeyman has joined #maemo01:06
jaem_n900the Rogers rep said that data overages were "0.03 cents" per MB01:06
GeneralAntillesIf you write an applet for it.01:06

* lcuk thinks he remembered something01:08
pupniklest this noise distract from the point - gross, fat, slow... python.  mirror is still installing TEN MINUTES later01:08
lcukpupnik, what kind of connection are you on? ip over avian?01:09
GeneralAntillespupnik, there are tradeoffs in everything.01:09
GeneralAntillespupnik, Python's low barrier to entry makes it heavier and slower.01:09
jaem_n900lcuk: IPoA is all the rage now01:09
GeneralAntillespupnik, not really worth freaking out about, however. ;)01:09
GeneralAntillesPersonally I'd rather have more applications.01:09
fralskurtan: god the language in that post is quite bad, id expect someone like him to take greater care when he posts on a public forum01:10

DantonicHey if I'm partitioning to boot from internal SD, are there any drawbacks to creating a boot partition and swap partition on the same internal card?01:32
Dantonicshould the swap be on the external SD?01:32
Dantonicthis on N800 btw01:33

pupnikapp idea - media transcoder to automatically transcode unplayable videos01:37
pupnikmencoder right on tablet01:37
GeneralAntillesBleh, battery killer01:38
GeneralAntillesBetter to use tablet-encode on a server.01:38
pupnike.g. someone sends you a youtube flv .. metacrawler finds it and trandcode daemon pops up to ask user "transcode now"?01:38
pupnikwe are mobile01:39
GeneralAntillesBetter to get flv playback working.01:39

Dantonichey GeneralAntilles can I ask you a partitioning question?01:56
DantonicDoes the location of the swap partition matter in regards to speed? for example would placing the swap at the beginning of an SD card be faster than at the end?  I guess I don't know how memory is accessed in an SD card01:57
*** zaheerm-lp has quit IRC01:57
`0660_to my understanding the swap partition is already in a high speed flash01:57
`0660_also the location does not matter with flash01:58
Dantonicwell I'm about to create the swap...01:58
Dantonicbut yeah your second statement is what I was interested in...01:58
Dantonicso how is memory accessed in SD?01:58
till-you don't need to position a read/write head01:59
till-so the position does not matter01:59
`0660_around 128KB at the time i think01:59
`0660_actually no01:59
DantonicI mean physically you're saying there is no difference in time to access the 1st byte on the card as the last byte?02:00
`0660_that's correct02:00
`0660_there are no moving parts in flash02:00
till-maybe a very little difference, as the electric energy travels with lightspeed and the distance to one end of the memory might be a little bit longer ..02:01
dmj726Anyone do icons here?02:01
Dantonicright I understand that but doesnt the electricity still have to travel physically from one byte located phisically somewhere on the card, or another byte located somewhere else??  Or probably that's not a bottleneck in regafds to accessing it?02:01
*** Ronnie has quit IRC02:01
`0660_but that delay would be hidden by the controller anyway02:01
Dantonicok so the controller is the bottleneck basically02:02
Dantonicso it doesnt matter02:02
till-and the memory itself i would say02:02
`0660_i think the controller waits a fixed period of time for the data to arrive02:02
*** setanta has quit IRC02:02
Dantonicdo you guys have a NIT?  boot from SD card?02:02
till-did once02:03
till-but the file system got corrupt, so i switched back02:03
DantonicI guess tho definitely keep the swap on a separate SD card tho right?02:03
Dantonicso if I boot from internal, keep the swap on external?02:03
Dantonicotherwise it might get too slow?02:03
till-i don't think so02:04
Dantonicor it wouldnt affect anything?02:04
DantonicI mean in that case the same controller would be having to deal with accessing memory for swap and for the OS?02:04
till-normal computers put the swap on the same hd as the files02:04
Dantonicbut wouldnt it be better to have swap be accessed by a different controller that is ONLY accessing the swap at that time?02:05
till-and are there really two memory controllers, or just one with two card slots connected?02:05
Dantonicas opposed to having to compete for information?02:05
Dantonicoh IDK about that02:05
*** wazd_ has quit IRC02:05
Dantonicidk if its 1 controller02:05
Dantonicor 202:05
jjmarinGeneralAntilles: What do you mean with "is it impacting functionality?". These messages appear on several menus across Maemo.02:05
till-someone should do some benchmarking02:05
Dantonicya that'd be interesting...02:05
till-my problem with swap is that the whole nit freeze for some seconds02:06
till-and i guess it's because of swapping02:06
Dantonicwell I'm gonna make a 500mb Fat, 1500mb linux, and make a swap on my external... and see what happens02:06
till-yeah, no reaction02:07
Dantonichmm  yeah I've experienced that02:07
till-and then after maybe 30 seconds or so it continous normal work02:07
Dantonicoh woah not 30 second freezes02:07
till-or crashes the desktop02:07
Dantonicmaybe few seconds02:07
*** EspadaV8_L has quit IRC02:07
Dantonicnot 3002:07

Dantonicthen I found that there was an updated version of GPE summary in extras devel... and installed that... its been 3 days and no crash yet... we'll see how it goes02:09

zelrikriandoThat s a device03:16
* lcuk is considering something along similar lines03:16
dmj726(which is a lot easier to do "in software" than a projector)03:16
zelrikriandonot an app03:16
CutMeOwnThroatmm, a projector would need to be laser-based, else it'd eat up much too much energy, I guess03:16
CutMeOwnThroateven then...03:16
lcukhow would you keep the shark alive?03:16
lcukit would need a little tank03:16
dmj726oh, I see the kind of video out you're thinking03:16
lcukno you dont03:17
dmj726Do they even have wireless video standards like that?03:17
zelrikriandoI am not sure but I think the app would be easy to write03:17
CutMeOwnThroatbut I do!03:17
lcukdmj726, ive been getting wireless video for years ;)03:17
lcuki actually have something cool in mind03:17
dmj726Do mention!03:18
lcukand if i can get it working for one thing it might cascade into many things03:18
lcukthis is the pseudo version:
lcuki want that working for real but knowing where the devices are positioned relative to each other03:18
lcukand i think if i can get it working for that one case, it might work for all of liqbase03:19
dmj726hooray, n900 wall!03:19

lcukthis is a technical problem im discussing with folks03:26
dmj726and it isn't *that* precise either!03:26
lcuktheres a few methods03:26
lcukaudio would be one03:26
lcukhave the devices chirp from each speaker in sequence03:26
lcukand have the others listening03:26
lcukthen compare notes on the relative volumes of each other03:26
lcukand work out location based on that03:27

lcukput up a 2dbarcode when the master machine says "cheese"03:27
lcukradio is harder to get info reqd03:27
CutMeOwnThroatactually... I dunno if that could really work, but "together" at a relatively low frequency might work better than "in sequence"03:27
lcuksequence is better03:27
lcukand easier to manage03:27
lcukand if done properly will sound like old school spectrum tapes (H)03:28
CutMeOwnThroatyou'd get a typical interference pattern at the micro, depending on distance/orientation03:28

CutMeOwnThroatprobably because it's kind of parabolically shaped...03:35
dmj726Oh, right.03:35
dmj726Could probably get rather good distance if you focus it tightly in one direction.03:35
dmj726directional wifi gets about 1 km range03:36
CutMeOwnThroatmore, I think03:36
CutMeOwnThroatI read the story of a guy who used 2 satellite dishes to connect to a... "neighbor", because his region of the city didn't have DSL, but some people a couple of km off did...03:38
CutMeOwnThroatactually he just went to houses in the direct line of sight and knocked... offering to pay for a DSL connection if they'd forward it to him (which was cheaper than all "normal" alternatives available at his house)03:39

dmj726I've seen Linux viruses.  The developer kindly pointed me to the paper he wrote about it on his website.05:01
zerojayYou'll see scripts attempt to root boxes, but not virii.05:01
aepzerojay: the way linux usually works is that people too fast and to diverse for any virus to spread properly05:01
GeneralAntillesHey, zerojay.05:02
dmj726that and repositories make it harder to infect via warez05:02

aepdmj726: obviously its trivial to brick your phone by downloading and executing random crap as root05:08
aepmy real concern was related to real worms though :P05:08

kurtani'd say thats pretty awesome if you manage to do that05:08
dmj726Tell people to stick to the repos?05:09
Termanaaep - all you do is simply, firstly grab a brick and then THROW that brick at the phone. You have sucessfully bricked your phone.05:09
dmj726If you manage to get a Linux virus these days, you pretty much deserve what you get.05:09

aeptheres a billion blog bosts with "OMG LINUX VIRUZZ"05:10
dmj726Step 1: Find instructions to write your own virus.05:10
dmj726Step 2: Write the virus.05:10
dmj726Step 3: Exectute the virus.05:10
dmj726You have successfully been infected by a linux virus.05:10
CutMeOwnThroatand there was that infamous un*x worm which forced a shutdown of the internet05:11
kurtanthats the proper way to do it05:11
TermanaI wonder weather they have patched Maemo 5 up so that you can't execute rm -rf / - like Ubuntu has done05:11
zelrikriandoThere is software to find vulnerabilities on any platform now05:11
Termanasudo rm -rf / rather05:11
zelrikriandoIf you find a vulnerability, you write a virus which exploits it05:12
zelrikriandothen you re done05:12
CutMeOwnThroatdmj726, my theory for the lack of linux viruses is, that all the people who would write one learn rather quickly, that they get much more appreciation and positive feedback, if they indeed use their skills in one open-source project or other...05:12

Termanaluke-jr: Slower than GPRS? When I'm on my Nokia N810 I have my 3G broadband SIM in a 2G phone and bluetooth it to my N810 - so its GPRS speeds.05:28
luke-jrTermana: I think about 128kbps?05:28
zelrikriandoTermana: yup05:28
zelrikriandoTermana: I am a quite disapointed, it's quite unresponsive...maybe it's because I am installing custom roms I am not sure05:29
GeneralAntilleszelrikriando, why an Android phone and not an N900?05:29
Termanaluke-jr: 128kbps is faster than GPRS. GPRS is only dial up speed, its like average 30kbps05:30
zelrikriandoGeneralAntilles: Back in the day, android was the only viable 'open' mobile platform05:30
luke-jrI think I'm wrong :p05:30
zelrikriandothe n900 was anounced maybe 2 or 3 months after I got my phone05:31
Termanazelrikriando: What type of Android phone did you get?05:31
zelrikriandoTermana: the HTC Magic05:31
zelrikriandoI tried a few custom roms on it though05:31
TermanaDoesn't look too bad05:32
TermanaI hate to say it though, but are any of these android phones or the n900/future maemo phones ever really going to take market share back from apple?05:32
zelrikriandoYeah it's ok05:32
zelrikriandoI think Apple is there to stay for a while05:33
zelrikriandobut their market share will saturate05:33
zelrikriandonot everybody likes them05:33
TermanaI hate their coolness factor. Theres just so much cool around them, you almost feel disappointed having a linux phone/mobile internet device05:34
zelrikriandoOne thing they do get right05:35
zelrikriandois responsiveness05:35
zelrikriandothat thing feels like it anticipates your actions05:35
aepwow is the accelerometer really that acurate that you can play games with it?05:35
aepthe quake3 demo is impressive05:35
zelrikriandoI played games with that05:36
*** KMFDM has quit IRC05:36
Termanaaep - i thought that would of been a major reason to chuck in an accelerometer05:36
zelrikriandoit's like a Wii-mote05:36
aepi never tryed a weemote05:36
aepbut if this actually works, it would make up for the lack of a d pad05:36
zelrikriandoaep: it really does05:37
aepnice stuff going on.05:37
zelrikriandoand most android devices have a trackball05:37
* aep eyes his old dusty nokia e series05:37
zelrikriandowhich can be potentially uses in games05:37
aepoh yeah well android...05:37
zelrikriandoThe iphone has like 1 bouton05:38
aepi'm not so into technology unless i can hack it05:38
zelrikriandoandroid is quite hackable :p05:38

aepthe iphone has a gay^D^D^D i mean fashion factor05:40
*** DantonicN800 has joined #maemo05:40
zelrikriandois pretty disapointing05:40
aepandroid can deliver a billion java apps. it won't make it more marketable.  maemo has taken up some serious sell points fro both consumer and geek05:41
aepwhich is imo key to sell any technology05:42
zelrikriandoIf any manufacturer can do something good with it, it s HTC05:42
aepHTC should stay windows mobile imo. its a good market for them05:42
zelrikriandoaep: Android is not Java only05:42
luke-jrzelrikriando: since when?05:42
zelrikriandoluke-jr: since it s C++ too05:42
aepyeah i know, but they're all hyped about the fact thats its so java optimized05:42
luke-jraep: HTC should port Linux to one of their good phones05:43
aepwhich is totally useless, as it covers only a limited portion of geeks05:43
aepluke-jr: or that, but thats a drastical change05:43
aepand if any linux, they're going to do a cripled one like android05:43
luke-jrI don't care, as long as Linux is ported05:43
luke-jrjust un-patch Android and use it w/ Gentoo...05:44
aepit should in fact run. the hardware is not that new05:44
luke-jraep: by good phone, I mean Touch Pro 205:44
luke-jrwhich is pretty new05:44
aepoh. dont know that one05:44
zelrikriandoAndroid is pretty far away from the spirit of Linux though05:44
zelrikriandoGoogle really changed stuff05:44
luke-jrzelrikriando: Android is at least partly in mainline now :/05:44
luke-jrunder staging05:44
aepwell if it runs the kernel, you can likely hack it to run a gnu/linux distro which is good05:45
aepbut i'd be to lazy05:45
luke-jraep: I want to run KDE 4.305:45
luke-jrwith a shell script to use the phone05:45
aepwell to each their own05:46
aepn900 should be able to do that05:46
zelrikriandoI dont like KDE05:46
luke-jraep: N900 is too closed for me :p05:46
luke-jrand again, GSM05:46
aephm i wonder if it can run xmonad :D05:46
aepwhats closed on it? i dont have it yet05:47
zelrikriandoone thing though with Android, is google sync05:47
zelrikriandoif you dont have a google account05:47
zelrikriandothe phone wont do shit05:47
luke-jraep: battery charger, phone stack, 3D, etc05:47
aep3d is opengl es. what more open do you need?05:47
luke-jraep: it's a blob05:47
aepand who cares about the gdm driver as long as you get a real model device05:47
aepwell i don't at least05:48
luke-jraep: the entire point of GNU/Linux is a free OS05:48
aepi'm not a gnuist.05:48
luke-jrmight as well run WinCE then05:48
aepa little open wins over closed05:48
Termanaluke-jr: Have you ever considered contacting RMS and asking to be his side-kick. Fighting closed source crime.05:49
*** _r00t- has quit IRC05:49
luke-jrI don't especially like RMS.05:49
aepi run closed source nvidia drivers on desktop happily. i'd buy amd if it was open, but since it's not, i'm ok with something that works05:49
luke-jraep: AMD/ATi *is* open05:49
aepsince when? :D05:49
*** Sargun has quit IRC05:50
luke-jraep: years and years ago05:50
luke-jrmaybe even a decade05:50
luke-jrthough for a while there it was only their oldest cards05:50
aepwell i only checked for the high end cards and you needed a very bad closed source driver a year ago05:50
luke-jrsure, they have a blob that supports their Digital Restrictions Management, but just 3D accel works fine w/ open drivers05:50
aepon the other hand the nvidia driver was closed too but at least works fine05:51
aephm does that mean ati stopped sucking?05:51
luke-jra year ago the newest stuff was probably beta05:51
luke-jraep: personally, the Radeon 9200 worked just fine until the new stuff was usable05:52
luke-jrI'm sure probably better than the N900's GLES05:52
aepand its open ?  nice05:52
luke-jr9200 has been open since at least before X.org05:53
aepi dont know which is which.  havent looked into ati for over a year05:53
aepi care about games, and the open source drivers i know have inferiour to no 3d accel05:54
zelrikriandoI am not even sure anybody I know use ati05:54

dmj7261By the way, with regard to Google and Android being rather closed and incompatible.  I suspect that there are a significant number (can't say how many) of Google employees who *do* care about openness.  However, Google is a slave to its business model.  This is not a justification for the shortcomings of Android, but just a thought before people say that the people at Google don't care about openness.12:09

dmj7261There was a Razr craze.12:19

dmj7261They say they would rather you port mer12:19
SpeedEvilMameo includes closed source bits - that presumably they don't license to be distributed.12:19
Termanadmj7261: I wonder if they will be able to get the same momentum of the Razr as with the Droid. So far it looks like its sort of going that way-ish12:20
SpeedEvilSo you can't legally distribute it anyway12:20
dmj7261The Razr craze screwed moto over in the years after because it made them just think about thin.12:20

prometoysStskeeps, thanks12:25
tekonivelalso, i would say a lot of the smartphone market is quite saturated already; ppl who are inclined to get a smartphone (you can call them "internet in your pocket" if u wish), already have an apple product12:25
tekoniveldmj7261: t though12:25
tekoniveldmj7261: but apple did it, with fascism12:25
TermanaIf you read Engadget they seem to be huge Apple fans, but the App Store rejections seem to be getting the best of them12:25
tekoniveldmj7261: but surely openness is *a* path to success12:25
dmj7261Openness is a path to success, or can be if done right12:26
TermanaIf theres an app store rejection and its not featured on Engadget, strike me down!12:26
dmj7261Whatever way to success you take, you have to do it right.12:26
*** prometoys has quit IRC12:26
tekonivelalso many sorts of openneess exist. f.ex. even if the platform is open source, but hard to install programs on, it's not open12:26
dmj7261A lot of times an early platform leader will be closed, but open (loosely defined) competitors often have the advantage as the market matures.12:27
tekoniveldmj7261: yeah, exactly, but there are also external factors, f.ex. what the competitors are doing (or saying they are doing) and whta the market is like12:27
dmj7261Windows could be considered an open *platform*12:27
TermanaLets face it - the consumer doesn't really care weather its open or not. They care about things like "coolness" - this is why Apple products are popular. It's also why the Droid seems to be becoming popular, it looks sleek, stylish and cool.12:28
tekonivelpersonally i'm doubtful Maemo will fly. i hope i'm wrong, since i'm getting one! :)12:28
tekonivelTermana: amen12:28
dmj7261Worst case scenario with Maemo, we get a couple years with a nice device that has a small, but high-quality selection of apps.12:29
tekonivelTermana: the way is see it, maemo 5 is a step to co-develop (community+nokia together) maemo (6) to be "cool"12:29

dmj7261I'm seeing a number of apps that will work well *for me* already.12:31

DantonicN800pwnguin, well, one of my first statements was that I am not a programmer. as far as I am concerned the creation of maemomapper is an impossible task.  I have basically no understanding of how libraries work, and i've guessed they are like subroutines of code with certain functionality (the wheel doesn't have to be reinvented.)  So it didn't sound unrealistic to me that people who can code something such as MM could implement somethin22:35

pupnik_the image quality of n900s (on those pro beamers) at summit 2009 was incredible.23:51
