Milo-great, got further...00:00
Milo-ERROR: Scratchbox is not properly set up!00:00
Milo-E: Scratchbox command 'sb-conf setup' returned error 0.00:00
Milo-ERROR: Not allowed to run this as root!00:01
Milo-ah, no wonder00:01
Milo-but the installer is required to be run as a root00:01
VDVsxwho said that the portrait more ins't in all apps:
pupnik_anybody got a zeemote ?00:03
*** woglinde has left #maemo00:03
qwerty12_N810VDVsx: Have you had any requests to make BlueMaemo support portrait mode? :p00:03
VDVsxqwerty12_N810, not yet00:04
GeneralAntillesBlueMaemo doesn't support portrait?00:04
GeneralAntillesDeal breaker!00:04
VDVsxqwerty12_N810, but some profiles will have portrait at least00:04
VDVsxGeneralAntilles, BlueMaemo will be the next think tank :P00:05
RST38hBlueMaemo also does not send MMSes00:05
RST38hNot gonna succeed without MMSes, no...00:05
qwerty12_N810RST38h: WTF00:05
RST38hwhat? 8)00:06
GeneralAntillesNOK1A SUX00:06
qwerty12_N810VDVsx: I want a refund, now!00:06
microlithwhat do you mean I can't send low rez images at an inflated price?!00:06
Milo-how am I supposed to run /opt/scratchbox/tools/bin/sb-conf ?00:06
VDVsxqwerty12_N810, sorry you are not eligible for a refund :P00:07
Milo-as root it says it can't be ran as root00:07
*** Flyser has joined #maemo00:07
GeneralAntillesqwerty12_N810, in fact, if you want to send it back you gotta pay. :P00:07
Milo-and as regular user, it says no permissions, even though it's chmodded properly :D00:07
qwerty12_N810VDVsx: Gah, you Ageist :p00:07
hexafor a new app should I use gtk/hildon or QT ?  dev guide seems to point to hildon/gtk.. but i'm confused with qt being maybe the future on maemo ?00:08
VDVsxhexa, do you know both ?00:09
hexaVDVsx, got more exp with glib but never really touched gtk.. so I guess neither..00:09
hexaVDVsx, but I don't want to recode my gui in a year...00:10
*** penguinbait has quit IRC00:10
VDVsxhexa, IMHO Qt isn't ready yet for maemo5, there's some limitations, so you've to choose :D00:10
hexaVDVsx, humm any doc on those limitations somewhere?00:12
Milo-seriously? how is this supposed to be run as regular user?00:12
Milo-Traceback (most recent call last):00:12
Milo-  File "/opt/scratchbox/tools/bin/sb-conf", line 10, in <module>00:12
Milo-    os.execv(chroot,[chroot,p.basename(sys.argv[0])]+sys.argv[1:])00:12
Milo-OSError: [Errno 13] Permission denied00:12
VDVsxhexa, probably, 1 sec00:12
Milo-it makes a system call to chroot, which can only be accessed as root00:13
*** Kt|Away is now known as Kt-00:13
lbtMilo-: you do know how sbox works?00:13
Milo-yes, creates a chrooted environment00:13
lbtintercepting system calls etc00:13
*** geaaru has joined #maemo00:13
Milo-it's a sandbox, sort of00:13
*** Kt- has quit IRC00:13
lbtallowing it to divert calls to binaries of it's own choosing00:13
Milo-lbt but I cannot install it, since it doesn't let me run the command as regular user00:14
Milo-and it can't be ran us root00:14
lbtplaying fakeroot-like games00:14
*** tkharju has quit IRC00:14
VDVsxhexa, some here:
lbtit's a very complex system.... not 'just an application'00:14
hexaVDVsx, great thx :) I'll take a look00:15
*** tiflsc has quit IRC00:15
lbtyou need to install it as the devs intended...00:15
VDVsxhexa, there's probably more and some of the stuff there is already outdated since last maemo-Qt release00:15
hexaVDVsx, yeah it's ok I'll search some more myself.. just wanted to get the feeling of the devs here...00:15
VDVsxhexa, but if you have doubts, the people at #qt-maemo can help for sure00:15
hexaVDVsx, thx :)00:15
hexaVDVsx, ho good to know :)00:16
lbthexa: for me.... Qt00:16
lbtbut it isn't quite ready00:16
lbtOTOH if you're learning... it'll be ready by the time your first app is ready for extras00:16
hexalbt, :) that's kinda was I was wondering :) so we're taling like 6 months not 2 years...00:17
Macerdamn. charlzie theron looks horrible in monster00:17
Macerthose crazy make up artists can do anything00:17
*** uhsf has joined #maemo00:18
hexalbt, k :) even better ,, I don't think I'll make it in less then 4..00:18
lbtmy guess is <3 months before Qt apps will be accepted into extras00:18
Maceris like00:18
Macerthe n900 out yet? :)00:18
*** homeasvs_ has quit IRC00:19
hexalbt, nice :) I'll really consider it then00:19
lbthexa: I'm not even sure that you *can't* put Qt in extras today. Core Qt is on the shipping image00:19
* lbt must push Shopper00:19
Mekwith a beta qt4.6 in extras-devel promoting stuff without also promiting that qt4.6 beta would be hard though... :)00:19
hexalbt, but regardless of the distribution... the point is will I be able to do something comparable to hildon /gtk.. in like 3-6 months with qt..00:20
lbtMek: yes, I'm not up to date... :)00:20
lbthexa: you can do that already00:20
*** TomaszD has joined #maemo00:20
lbtor do you mean personal learning curve00:20
hexalbt, nah I meant  qt status... nice :)00:21
lbtQt status is pretty much 1st class already00:21
hexaguess I'll go qt then :)00:21
TomaszDlbt looks like we'll meet again00:21
ali1234how does the n900 backup tool work for "application list?" does it just save the list, and then install them again using apt?00:21
*** Flyser_ has quit IRC00:21
lbtali1234: think so...00:22
lbtTomaszD: I'm not accepted yet00:22
ali1234is it gonna break when my custom repo is not available?00:22
hexalbt, is there still something like a liscence to pay to do qt apps or something or is it all free now btw ? .. /me a bit out of date on it..00:22
*** ArSa has quit IRC00:22

ali1234does anyone know of a program for winmob which adds bluetooth contact sync without doing it one vcard at a time?00:23
* lbt hasn't flashed yet as I wanted to sync my contacts00:23
TomaszDlbt still got your Mer business card somewhere lol00:23
lbtTomaszD: framed I hope!00:23
ali1234i don't have anything to sync contacts with except my winmob phone which doesn't support contact syncing with anything but outlook, which i dont have00:24

GeneralAntillesExcept for two flagship stores in the US.01:43

greenflythe n900 is barely available in the flagship cities in the US, much less those states and definitely not in the rest of the US01:46

GeneralAntillesI didn't get any email, either, but the N900 suddenly appeared on the website.01:50
wiretappedjust when i signed up01:50
wiretappedchecking now01:50
Milo-hmm, I'm getting exactly the same error, but I don't have vdso enabled in my kernel and therefore vdso cannot be disabled by echoing..01:51
GeneralAntilleslol, N75 for €240.54 or N900 for €250.01:51
wiretappednope, N75 is the only device available to me there :(01:51
GeneralAntilleslogged in?01:51
GeneralAntillesTry reloading a couple time.01:51
Milo-and even though the date is from nearly 2 years ago, I'm trying to install maemo5-sdk, and that fails with exactly the same message01:51
Milo-any help?01:51
GeneralAntillesYou Forum Nokia matches your username, presumably?01:51
*** cvandonderen has quit IRC01:52
javispedroMilo-, you don't have vdso? are you exactly sure?01:52
javispedros/vdso/randomized vdso01:52
wiretappedno my username is just my first name and that was already taken, so my forum nokia name is my email address (same email used for
Milo-searched kernel and it says VDSO=n01:52
GeneralAntilleswiretapped, and when you emailed the DDP address you indicated such?01:52
*** cvandonderen has joined #maemo01:53
Milo-I assume it's "Compat VDSO support"01:53
GeneralAntillesHrm, odd.01:53
ds3GA: if the 3G modem is unlock....01:53
Milo-and that I have disabled01:53
GeneralAntillesWell, I'd suggest emailing them again.01:53
GeneralAntillesds3, unlocked as in the carrier subsidy definition or not-a-blackbox definition?01:54
Milo-glibc adds randomized VDSO01:54
Milo-did not know that01:54
ds3what is annoying is almost every ~4" screen device with a fast ARM has at least one fatal flaw :(01:54
javispedroMilo-: Compat VDSO support is exactly what you need to _enable_01:54
ds3GA: subsidy lock01:54
GeneralAntillesds3, they don't sell it subsidized through any carrier in the US as of yet.01:54
GeneralAntillesSo, yes, it's unlocked.01:54
Milo-javispedro oh, I thought I needed to _disable_ it :o01:54
RXrenesis8€250, that's only $370... wow01:54
GeneralAntilles(At that $479.99 price, by the way)01:54
ds3the sales guy at the TMO store hints they may pickup the N90001:55
Milo-javispedro I need to enable it so I can disable it? :)01:55
javispedroMilo-: disable randomized vdso (which is what compat vdso does)01:55
GeneralAntillesds3, so the rumors say, but I'm guessing that'll be next year some point.01:55
GeneralAntillesds3, for now they're all free and clear. ;)01:55
javispedroMilo-: did you build sbox?01:55
Milo-login fails01:55
GeneralAntillesRXrenesis8, you can get cool discounts, too, when you become a cool cat. :P
ds3GA: problem is, my N800 is on its last legs and I need a hand held device01:55
ds3so if I get one, it will not be torn apart01:55
javispedroMilo-: in which case you may want to patch sbox's used glibc with01:55
GeneralAntillesds3, get two! :P01:56
*** trbs has quit IRC01:56
ds3GA: the other thing is the TMO guys won't tell me a straight story on if my current dataplan SIM will work01:56
GeneralAntillesds3, well, as an N800 owner from day 1, I can nothing but recommend the N900.01:56
GeneralAntilles(been using it since September on AT&T)01:56
GeneralAntillesds3, Web'n'Walk?01:56
ds3GA: does it have the 2 SD slots i.e. is it crippled like the N810?01:56
GeneralAntilles1 microSD slot01:56
GeneralAntillesBut it has 32GB built-in01:56
pupnik_anybody see what cpu load pulse audio typically takes for speaker playback - always 17-18%?01:57
GeneralAntillesSo not as bad as it seems.01:57
ds3oh much of that 32G is usable?01:57
GeneralAntilles2GB is used for application installation space, 768MB for swap and the rest is free.01:57
ds3is it like the 2G inside the 810? where 80%+ is used from day one01:57
Milo-javispedro is that a patch to glibc or the scratchbox-toolchain-*-glibc?01:57
pupnik_i just figured one could implement a 0.5ms delay to get a 1000hz notch filter01:57
GeneralAntillesWell, um, there'll be some number of cached Ovi Maps maps in there, too.01:57
GeneralAntillesBut those can be removed.01:57
pupnik_or maybe an inverted qms delay01:57
javispedroMilo-: scratchbox-core/libs.01:57
javispedronot any of the toolchains.01:58
javispedrobasically search for rtld.c somewhere in the sbox "core" tarball and patch that01:58
ds3if I can get 16G free, I can tolerate it01:58
pupnik_start filming video and watch it fill up01:59
*** digitalstimulus_ has quit IRC01:59
pupnik_the video isnt as wavy as with cheap phones, quite nice01:59
GeneralAntillesds3, I think the maps will be in the 500MB-1.5GB range.02:00
GeneralAntillesds3, it depends on region, though. That'd be my bet for US.02:00
ds3fill up? surely, it has a real time compression through the DSP, right? :D02:00
*** fluff|afk is now known as fluff02:01
ds3GA: I was very disappointed at their demo maps; this is to the point where I much rather use maemo-mapper anyday02:01
GeneralAntillesMaemo Mapper's being ported to Clutter02:01
GeneralAntillesSo it should be much friendlier on the N900.02:01
ds3is the GSM module data only or did they bring out the mic and speaker so it can be used as a speaker phone?02:02
GeneralAntillesOvi Maps on the N900 sucks.02:02
GeneralAntillesIt's a cellphone.02:02
ds3I am happy with the current Maemo mapper02:02
GeneralAntillesEarpiece and everything.02:02
ds3well... except for its choking on huge track files02:02
Milo-javispedro gah, gentoo provides binary packages only, so I guess I'll start this building from scratch ._·02:02
GeneralAntillesHardware will help with that.02:02
GeneralAntillesds3, which rock and where? :P02:02
javispedroMilo-: don't understimate the task of building sbox.02:02
GeneralAntillesHave you been hiding under. ;)02:03
Milo-javispedro well it seems like I will have to build it :)02:03
Milo-only binaries available through portage02:03
javispedrogood luck.02:03
GeneralAntillesIf you've got a data plan appended to your voice plan with T-Mobile right now it should work fine.02:03
ds3some big chunk in the easter island :D02:03
ds3I got a data plan but no voice plan02:03
Pavlovanyone made a google maps app for n900 yet?02:03
Milo-javispedro simply turning on the VDSO in kernel would fix this though?02:03
Pavlovone that doesn't take 15 minutes to start?02:03
GeneralAntillesIt should work fine02:03
*** DrIDK has joined #maemo02:04
GeneralAntillessince you can just drop them SIM in02:04
ds3can I export the EDGE/GPRS/3G/etc via the WiFi?02:04
GeneralAntillesand they don't have any real way to know what device you're using.02:04
javispedroMilo-: again, turning on compat VDSO == disabling randomizing VDSO02:04

genewitchtmobile is the only us carrier with 3g10:39
genewitchfor it10:39
genewitchso why bother getting an unlocked one10:39
pekujato stick it to the man?10:39
genewitchi live in a huge t-mobile market10:39
genewitchi mean for me personally.10:40
bigbrovargenewitch: am tempted to go with amazon too for that price, my current pre-order is with Newegg, but the $80+ extra bucks can be used for a 16gb card + bluetooth headset10:40
genewitchi can see a huge draw for it over an iphone in non-3g markets10:40
bigbrovaralthough i get to loose my standing in the line10:40
genewitchi've read reports that amazon won't ship it till after christmas10:40
genewitchI sorta wanted one, you know, now10:40
genewitchand froogle had a bunch a couple of weeks ago, now they're all pre-orders10:41

bigbrovargenewitch: well I think they are just being over permissmistic. ( or I hope )10:41

*** ferulo has quit IRC10:41
genewitchpekuja: only online that i've found10:42

*** Mousey has joined #maemo10:42
genewitchpekuja: has nothing to do with the carriers, it's the radio10:42
pekujathe radio?10:43
genewitchthe radio is incompatible with every US carrier except T-Mobile, and that's just a fluke, T-Mobile happened to buy that spectrum for 4+ billion dollars10:43
pekujaah I see10:43
pekujaso T-Mobile is the only carrier you could even use it on?10:43
genewitchat 2G speeds10:43
genewitchT-Mobile for 3G10:43
pekujawell yeah10:44
genewitchin the US that's it10:44
pekujawhat's the maximum for 2G?10:44
genewitchunder 200kbit10:44
genewitchn900's max 3g speed is 10.1 mbit10:44
genewitchat least on tmobile's service10:44
pekujaso there are no SIM-locked N900's available in the US10:45
genewitchpekuja: not in stores, only online10:45
genewitchi've been asking for weeks, everyone looks it up and says no10:45
pekujaso who has it online?10:45
pekujaI'm looking at T-Mobile's site and they don't have it10:45
genewitchI don't know, i can't remember the sites i saw it on10:45
genewitchthe sites i saw it on weren't cellular providers, they were like cellphone stores10:45
pekujaand they sell SIM-locked phones too?10:46
*** promulo has quit IRC10:47
genewitchyeah they sold blackberries and androids and whatever10:48
*** |R has quit IRC10:48
pekujathe market is different there I guess.10:48
pekujawe have a very different market here in Finland probably because selling a phone with a contract was illegal for a long time10:49
genewitchwe can do stuff without contracts here10:49
genewitchyou just have to pay full price10:49
*** BabelO has joined #maemo10:50
pekujabut I mean the culture is different10:50
genewitchand verizon wants you to pay a deposit anyhow10:50
pekujapeople are more willing to pay full price10:50
genewitchwell in the US it's more like people with good credit can get away with cheap phones and contracts10:51
pekujaand most of the contract deals aren't such where you are forced to pay for an expensive contract you don't need10:51
genewitchthe n900 is gunna cost me $70 a month to use10:51
genewitchi shouldn't ever go over my minutes cause i have voip lines coming out of every orifice10:52
pekujaeven the iPhone you can get for around 20 euros a month with a two year contract10:52
*** trickie has quit IRC10:52
genewitchthat's dirt cheap10:52
genewitchthat's also $70 here10:53
pekujayou basically just pay for the phone, and the contract is cheap10:53
genewitchwait, though that might be the same10:53
pekuja20 euros is around $3010:53
genewitchnah it'd be 47 euros10:53
*** BluesLee has joined #maemo10:54
genewitchdo the iphones get 3g speed and unlimited data usage?10:54
pekujano, but you can upgrade your contract to get that10:54
genewitchcause that's the perk for iphones in the USA. they're one of the few phones that both get unlimited bandwidth and can use more than the carriers cap you at10:54
genewitchthe other one is android, but that's $10 more a month10:54
pekujayou can get an unlimited data plan at 384kbps for about 10 euros a month10:55
genewitchthat's really slow though10:55
genewitchiphones here get 800-1200kbits10:55
pekujafor 1M it's 20 euros a month10:55
aquatixmorning all10:55
genewitchthat's cool10:55
genewitchpekuja: how much does a locked n900 cost where you are?10:56
pekujaI don't think they sell locked ones here10:56
genewitchwell whatever, the standard n90010:56
genewitchhow much does it cost10:56
pekujaI think even the ones from carriers are unlocked10:56
pekujait's about 600 euros10:56
genewitchthat's double what i am going to pay10:57
pekujayeah, that's close to $90010:57
aquatixhm, here in the Netherlands it's listed in online stores starting at 53010:57
genewitch530 euros is still a lot10:57
aquatixbut damn, it's some package :)10:57
genewitchi'm looking for less than 350 euros10:57
pekujayeah I think the cheapest deals here are about 540 euros10:57
*** lolf has quit IRC10:58
genewitchi really want one, i guess i'll have to just wait and use my n800 for EVERYTHING until i get it.10:58
pekuja480 usd on Amazon, right?10:58
aquatixfor less than 350 EUR, you might better look at an android phone or an n8x0 tablet10:58
aquatixdepending on what you want10:58
*** lolf has joined #maemo10:58
genewitchpekuja: $520 with $50 mail in rebate10:58
pekujaok, so $47010:59
genewitchyeah thereabouts10:59
pekujagenewitch: do you have to pay taxes on top of that or is it tax-free?10:59
genewitchwell it depends. technically you have to pay taxes but amazon won't charge them.10:59
pekujaan important thing to notice when comparing European and US prices is that European prices usually include taxes10:59
pekujathe Amazon deal is still really good though11:00
genewitchpekuja: in general, buying stuff online is tax free at the point of sale. you're supposed to claim the tax at the end of the year, but no one does.11:00

*** RobertH[AU] has joined #maemo17:09
pupnikmaybe we could temp disable expensive pulseaudio and cheaply stream to dac17:09
javispedroor go back to using dsp for audio17:10
pupnikor just the app bypass it17:10
javispedroi don't know who decided against that...17:10
javispedrobypassing pulseaudio -- here by dragons17:10
pupnikwe just must limit the volume17:10
javispedroprobably uses the ALSA device 100% of the time17:10
javispedronot to mention who knows what's the ALSA interface this time.17:11
javispedrobut iirc I read it is more sane than n810 since they're not using dsp anymore17:11

*** hannesw_ has quit IRC17:17
pupnikfelipec: we have an audio subsystem consuming 15-25 percent cpu17:21
felipecpupnik: when you use speakers17:22
pupniki dont mind becoming unpopular to make this an issue17:22
SpeedEvilpulseaudio is insanity.17:22
SpeedEvilAt least resamplingwise.17:22
felipecpupnik: which are crappy and will fry if you use then 100% all the time17:22
pupnikso allow high perf apps to play at low volume17:23
pupnikwithout bottleneck17:23
SpeedEvilA patch that adjusts the DAC frequency if there is no sound playing would be good.17:23
pupniktwo modes17:23
SpeedEvilSo if there isn't sound playing, and a sound source starts at 48KHz - it clocks the DAC to 48KHz17:24
javispedrono, I can easily make the emu render at 48kHz and seems that doesn't cause cpu usage to drop17:24
felipecpupnik: you can do that by issuing the ALSA ioctls I guess17:24
pupnikone mode where app generates 48khz and disablesm resampling and eq17:24
SpeedEvilSample format conversion? though that should not sanely do that.17:24
felipecpupnik: if you send 48khz there's no resampling17:25
javispedroit's more easy for the emu to do conversion -- think it knows about the spc700 it is emulating.17:25
felipecand you can manually disable the equalizer I think17:25
javispedroand not everything is sampled sound at that level.17:25
pupnikfelipec: that would be the app level solution!17:26
javispedroif you can manually disable eq, wouldn't speakers fry as said?17:26
SpeedEvilGenerally not, you'll worst-case get distortion.17:27
pupniklower volume17:27

javispedrowell I was wrong19:18
javispedronot arm1119:18
RST38hA Chinese console19:18
javispedrobut MIPS19:18
RST38hAnything with MIPS will suck by definition19:18
lardmansmall screen too19:18
RST38h(I can explain why, but it is somewhat involved)19:18
lardmango on :)19:18
RST38hWell, MIPS instruction set has been made by academics, so even although it is RISC, it is incredibly inefficient19:19
RST38hFor example, VGBA binary size hits 1MB on MIPS19:19
lardmanthey made the inefficient microcode?19:19
RST38hAlso, the stack frames are huge19:20
lardmanor poor design/instruction choice?19:20
RST38hNo, they designed inefficient instruction set19:20
lardmanah ok19:20
RST38hThat does not well express what people want to do19:20
RST38hIt is a freaking university project, not a production design19:20
RST38hSo, on expensive workstations, these problems are offset by huge caches and fast memory19:21
RST38hBut once you cut down the caches and use normal consumer grade 133MHz SDRAM (or mDDR), the performance goes straight to hell19:22
lardmanso why was it adopted then?19:22
RST38hThe design is free, it is cheap to produce, so lots of Chinese make and use it19:22
RST38hAnd for low performance uses, it works well enough. I have one of those Chinese systems on my desk19:23
*** thux has left #maemo19:23
RST38hICNexus, MIPS chip, runs Linux, starts X11/XFCE on its little 640x460 screen19:23
RST38hRuns fine, has even gone Xine compiled for it, but waaaaay slow19:23
RST38hWhen comparing it to ARM instruction set, you can clearly see that the designers were fixing shortcomings of the MIPS design, and largely succeeded19:24
javispedrofrom what I read it doesn't run linux but a custom kernel, I though otherwise.19:24
javispedrowhich may explain why it reached high performance with such low specs19:25
RST38hjavis: Doesn't matter, at the end it runs binary code, and does it slowly19:25
lardmanhmm, how are these supposed to work?:
javispedroconny discovered it.19:25
javispedroyou may want to search for his -developers post19:26
RST38hlardman: SUPPORT will tell wm that your window can be rotated19:26
javispedroiirc he made a wiki entry, but I don't remember where.19:26
RST38hREQUEST will tell wm that you do not suppor tlandscape at all19:26
lardmanyeah, but from the wording it looks like I can only choose one or the other, not both19:26
RST38hwhy choose both?19:26
javispedroqwerty12++ :)19:26
lardmanwell because my app will be able to support both19:26
RST38hsemantically, choosing both makes no sense19:27
RST38hlardman: Both morientations? that is SUPPORT19:27
javispedro"That means that to get a rotated desktop all visible windows must have the HILDON_PORTRAIT_MODE_SUPPORT flag set to 1 and at least one of them must have the HILDON_PORTRAIT_MODE_REQUEST flag set to true."19:27
lardmanRST38h: that's what I thought, but the wording indicates that that will stick it there19:28
lardmanah well, I'll just set it and see what happens19:28
lardmanqwerty12: thanks for the link btw :)19:28
RST38hjavis: sounds weird19:29
*** Ufoeke has quit IRC19:29
javispedrothe weird thing is that the wm doesn't "request" portrait when rotated19:29
javispedroother than that, it's mostly what you explained.19:29
*** Ufoeke has joined #maemo19:29
lardmanso this should work? hildon_gtk_window_set_portrait_flags(*window, HILDON_PORTRAIT_MODE_SUPPORT);19:29

javispedroheh I was right it the a320 used linux19:32
javispedrothe guy says the linux one goes faster than the custom kernel one.19:32

javispedronot really.19:54
javispedrothe equivalent of19:54
javispedroconst int max = A_LOT; for (int i = 0; i < max; i++) { void * m = malloc(60); } should be faster on Java.19:54
crashanddiethat is, until you reach the VM heap maximum19:55
crashanddieat which point if would just fail19:55
crashanddieit would**19:55
javispedrowell the C version would fail then too.19:55

jaskacrashanddie: o.O, last time i looked i didnt figure out how to19:56
jaskathen again im no java guy19:56
crashanddiejavispedro, what I meant was: the Java VM has a pre-allocated chunk of memory19:58
crashanddiejavispedro, so memory assignment is just an internal process, whereas C needs to "ask" it from the OS19:58
*** Firebird has joined #maemo19:58
javispedrowell If that's the case it is a limitation of the VM, not anything perse.19:59
javispedromaybe because changing heap size at runtime on a generational gc is hard.19:59

javispedrojava can change the heap size at runtime!20:00

RST38hby as much as 30%20:07
Proteousmaybe 30% or more20:08
javispedrocause there's like a hundred of them... (there's quite a lot of academics that want to put java back on supercomputing centers...)20:08
RST38hjavis: Well, they basically took a few web-bound applications, programmed them in Java and C++ (similar code) and showed how Java was 30% faster20:08
*** bilboed-tipi has quit IRC20:08
*** tiflsc has quit IRC20:08
RST38hjavis: Closer examination revealed that these apps did a lot of memory allocations (strings! web is all about strings)20:08

lcukn900rst happens everywhere20:09

Flandryit was all more or less hard science fiction, and always came to the conclusion that human space travel is a doomed endeavor21:54

crashanddieandre_, being certain that you're right and "waiting for people to join your line of thinking" isn't patience23:22

infobotqwerty12_N810 meant: zerojay: lol, of course. This was the lady who thought Nokia needed to bring out Netbooks with Maemo on 'em...23:34
zerojay"asks for more information than the user needs to give"? She doesn't have a clue how bug tracking works. Providing all the information possible is important because while the user may not see why some piece of info is important, the developer might.23:35
andre_feel free to comment :-P23:35
zerojayOoooh, believe me - I plan on it.23:35
GeneralAntilleslol, zerojay's gonna be the grump in my place.23:36
sp3000generally, forums can be a fine place to discuss bugs for people who can't handle bugzillas23:36
sp3000I'm sure some accommodations between them can be made but in the general case I think it's asking for magic23:37
GeneralAntillessp3000, we've had lots of people volunteer to transcribe bugs reported on the forums into useful bugs for bugzilla23:37
GeneralAntillesbut, much like the people who volunteered to do the same for the wiki, nothing ever came of it.23:37

zerojayIt's also hard to do that when the bugs mentioned on the forums are nothing but vague "it doesn't work" all the time.23:38
JaffaI even tried to limit it to a selection of threads in Community, Development and Applications.23:38
