andre_Stskeeps, I'm employed00:06
andre_qwerty12_N810, sssh, don't tell them about all my other jobs!00:06
mikhasChani, do you recharge via USB?00:07
Chanimikhas: yes00:07
qwerty12_N810andre_: Ohh, right. Sorry!00:07
crashanddieJaffa, MoSCoW?00:07
mikhaswell, you might want to try via power outlet00:07
Chaniaha! got it this tim,,, but it'll probably stop again in a minute00:07
mikhasit could be that your USB port is not providing enough power for a recharge00:07
Chanimikhas: don't have one of those chargers00:07
andre_qwerty12_N810, and never ever mention my microsoft position. you know those open source facists...00:08
Chaniall I have is the usb cable00:08
mikhasok, try other USB ports then00:08
Chanimikhas: also, it worked fine for the last week00:08
mikhasand check your BIOS whether you ramp up power supply00:08
mikhas<= out of ideas then00:08
Chanijust this morning I woke up and it was frozen, thinking it was still charging...00:08
andre_Chani, how did you get the device if you don't have a normal non-usb charger? :)00:08
Chaniandre_: from a teacher. he had two devices and only one wall charger00:08
andre_Chani, tried removing the battery and wait for a day?00:09
andre_ah i see00:09
* andre_ wonders whether his idea makes sense at all00:09
mikhas1. go to your teacher's house 2. steal the wall charger00:09
sp3000(if it's attached to a wall, take the wall too, it may come in handy)00:09
ChaniI have problems with my n810 too, I have to jiggle the cable a lot to get it to charge, then if I touch it again it might stop00:09
andre_that list is missing to take the food from the fridge00:09
* GeneralAntilles puts andre_ on a stake.00:09
mikhasit's an open-ended list =)00:10
qwerty12_N8101. Download porn 2. Threaten to put it on teacher's account if he does not give the charger00:10
Chaniaargh, it stopped charging when I put it down again00:10
StskeepsChani: typical issue with that charger plug00:10
*** borism has quit IRC00:11
* sp3000 typically loses with cables before plugs00:11
* Chani jiggles the cable again00:11
andre_qwerty12_N810, if you could elaborate the first step via /prvmsg - tried so many times and never found it in this internet thingy00:11
Chani*sigh* it works when I'm touching the cable...00:11

SpeedEvil I now have a sort-of-prototype application - well - at least the outline of one - for a barcode based inventory thing for my desktop. (possible to later port to the phone). I want to integrate a kitchen scale to this. Is there any project anyone can point me at to read 7 segment displays?00:16
SpeedEvil(I know there are USB scales, however I don't have one)00:17
crashanddieanyone know what Jaffa meant by "MoSCoW prioritisation?"00:18

VDVsxGeneralAntilles, did you removed the previous pairings ?00:25
VDVsxGeneralAntilles, which opinion did you use ?00:25

GeneralAntillesVDVsx, OK, got some bugs to file.00:33
VDVsxGeneralAntilles, as I said the UI is unfinished, but shot :P00:33
GeneralAntillesVDVsx, what version is this?00:33
GeneralAntillesVDVsx, can you move the settings and about up into the menu?00:35
VDVsxGeneralAntilles, I can, but this is not GTK+ :)00:36
GeneralAntillesVDVsx, well, it's trying to look like it. :P00:36
VDVsxmore or less, lol00:37
GeneralAntillesVDVsx, not being able to get to about until you've connected to something is irritating.00:37
VDVsxGeneralAntilles, true, I've plans to make hildon-like menu, but first I need to finish the 'default' UI00:39
VDVsxactually a did one, but very ugly00:39
* VDVsx needs wazd help :p00:39
*** myosound has quit IRC00:41
VDVsxGeneralAntilles, ah, I've a service record that support the multimedia keys/email/browser ...., only need a way to assign them (more UI work :()00:41
Jaffacrashanddie: Wikipedia link above is accurate: Must/Should/Could/Won't00:41
VDVsxbetter than assign p or space00:42
GeneralAntillesDon't think they'll work in OS X.00:42
VDVsxGeneralAntilles, yes they work, according to one of my testers00:43
VDVsxGeneralAntilles, "volume up/down, mute, play/pause, stop, next track, previous track all work as expected on both systems." XP and Mac OS 10.5.800:44

kirmaspeedevil: as shadowjk told... I guess large portion of european preorders have got shipping from rotterdam on friday evening01:02
*** ferdna has quit IRC01:02
kirmamine is Köln/Cologne now01:02
ShadowJKI ordered rather late, and the damn website was so broken I couldn't register a username, so I didn't get any emails..01:03
ShadowJKexcept the first 301:03
SpeedEvilNo charge yet.01:03
javispedrosave for DDP orders, which have been lost in cyberspace.01:03
ShadowJKAnd Nokia Shop FI said they ran out of devices due to high demand and couldn't fulfill every order :/01:03
kirmaNokia Shop FI gave indirect impression that they would have the devices in Finland, but they were really in Rotterdam (port?), and I think some non-Finn had identical tracking information indicating that the shipment there was much larger than just Finns... so others in other countries might be missing some too01:05
mikhasbut that's good signs, no?01:05
mikhashigh demand, I mean01:06
*** florian has joined #maemo01:06
ShadowJKWell at this point the devices going to fi aren't going anywhere else because no other place has crippled the keyboard in the same way, right ;)01:06
kirmaI'm confident it'll end up at work on monday to me, unless UPS delivery guy fumbles locally at Helsinki...01:06
ShadowJKI think I picked standard delivery, I don't remember well. I hope that means Itella and not UPS01:07
kirmaI would certainly have appreciated it getting shipped on thursday and reaching me friday, but it's not such a huge issue it would tip over my world01:07
ShadowJKThe devices sitting in rotterdam kinda explains why they started shipping so soon, to account for the extra time it takes?01:08
kirmaRotterdam would also indicate that they really did ship it by *ship* from Korea01:09
kirmahow long that takes...01:10

ShadowJKup some river iirc01:12
kirmanetherlands, biggest port in europe01:13
rangeHamburg. But that's really not as close as Rotterdam.01:13
rangeSpeedEvil: Further up the rhine is stupid if you need a central hub. Next large harbour behind Rotterdam is Duisburg.01:13

Stskeepsif from korea, why not italy/france?01:14
SpeedEvilYeah - I was trying to remember my german geography.01:14
*** cghouly has left #maemo01:14
SpeedEvilWhich comes largely from the '1632' series of novels.01:14
Stskeepsif it goes through the canal down in egypt01:14
till-but hamburg harbor is much bigger01:15
rangeStskeeps: Yeah, I'm wondering about that too, as it has to go through the mediterranean sea.01:15
rangeSo maybe not by ship after all?01:15
* SpeedEvil ponders the _real_ reason for the shipping delays.01:15
ShadowJKStskeeps, sea is most economical01:15
SpeedEvilIt's a tragic reverse of the Spinal Tap moment.01:15
SpeedEvilThe screen is in fact 3.5m, not 3.5".01:16
*** borism has joined #maemo01:16
StskeepsSpeedEvil: i'd pay for a 3.5m N900.01:16
Stskeepsif it came at the price suggested in DDP, that'd be great, too ;)01:16
rangeRotterdam seems to be one of UPS' central hubs.01:16
andre_maybe some Somali pirates now all have N900s and that's the real reason why we wait ;-)01:17
*** rdorsch has quit IRC01:18
kirmasome page says that daesan-rotterdam shipment would take a tad over a month01:18
rangeBut UPS is bleh. Looks like taking off half a day if I want to receive the thing at home.01:18
kirmathat would be great joy since vast portion of somali don't even know how to read their own language01:19
andre_i'm not talking about the average Somali (whatever that means since the country does not exist), but educated pirates.01:20
SpeedEvilSomalia doesn't exist?01:20
kirmawhere they have got their education if the country has supposedly been in constant civil war for like twenty years?01:21
kirma(yeah, offtopic)01:21
*** borism_ has quit IRC01:21
qwerty12_N810Somalia's awesome. I mean, where else in the world can you go to Puntland?01:21
andre_true that!01:21
andre_kirma, just because there is civil war in parts of the country does not mean that people are uneducated ;-)01:22
SpeedEvilOr that it doesn't exist.01:22
andre_pirates do contact ship owners in english or french i assume.01:22
*** Dantonic has quit IRC01:22
andre_yes, it exists on some maps. but that's all.01:22
mikhasthey needed the n900s to extend their pirate business01:23
kirmaI have to say that the pirates haven't really worked too hard on giving that civilised, highly educated image...01:23
andre_well, maybe that's the media here?01:23
*** EspadaV8_L has quit IRC01:24
andre_they probably didn't start piracy because they were bored.01:24
kirmaI actually think european media is gentle to them, but they're completely uninterested to spin their own ultra-selfish actions in believably positive light.01:24
andre_and they probably don't have good boats and weapons because they are stupid.01:25
*** florian has quit IRC01:25
andre_sure. but why should they care about what others think, if nobody cared about somalia for 15 years? :-)01:25

andre_if european ships take away your fish and dump their waste in front of your coast i'd also think about how to pay back.01:26
andre_(still it's both criminal of course. it's not that I want to say that it's good what they do.)01:27
kirmaif you look at historical records, you can see that fishing has never been actually big part of society in somalia. and I doubt if any country has right to demand that other countries should come to solve their own problems, and threat with trouble if they don't.01:29
*** tbf has quit IRC01:29
kirmabut I'd say: back to the topic, political discussions are usually not so fruitful...01:29

microlithothers might think "maybe a road shouldn't go here"02:32
XisdibikAmericans are stubborn :)02:32
microlithno joke02:32
microlithalthough I imagine it's fun to go down :)02:32
Xisdibikit is02:32
Xisdibikmy friend went down it on something i totally forgot what its called02:33
Xisdibikits like putting scateboard wheels on tiny little platforms02:33
Xisdibikand going down on two of them, one for each foot02:33
microlithoh, sorta like doing a slalom, only without snow02:34
Xisdibiknot really02:34
Xisdibiklet me try to find it02:34
GeneralAntillesRollerskating? :P02:35
lcuktimeless, mxr cross reference, im just wanting to search for all instances of a function in use.02:35
Xisdibikno, they are not attached to your feet02:35
lcukwithin a set of files02:35
Xisdibikits like two little skateboards with one wheel each02:35
timeless_mbplcuk: sure02:35
lcuki got that far02:35
lcukthe "in files matching" area02:36
timeless_mbpif you want an identifier search, you're using the wrong entrypoint02:36
lcukis it simply *gary* for everything with gary in02:36
timeless_mbpsearch is vaguely plain text02:36
lcukfilename wise02:36
timeless_mbpit's a regexp against the file path02:36
timeless_mbpbut again, you have the wrong entrypoint assuming you can spell the function name correctly02:36
lcukcool, so complete control when searching02:36
timeless_mbppretty much02:36
timeless_mbpoh, for fremantle you almost certainly want to use a file limited search02:37
timeless_mbpas i think the db might be too large for search to work otherwise02:37
lcukyeah i know02:37
timeless_mbpnot certain but...02:37
lcuki know which area im looking02:37
timeless_mbpfor ident search, that's not required02:37
lcuki just wanted to see if it matched with the sort of results i used to have in windows02:37

* timeless_mbp nods02:39
ali1234if you try to make a bezier patch, the call succeeds but when you try to instantiate it, it doesn't work02:40

microlithhow big are the monitors?03:11
MacerIt may seem impossible that two galaxies on opposite sides can be separated by 93 billion light years after only 13 billion years, since special relativity states that matter cannot be accelerated to exceed the speed of light in a localized region of space-time. However, according to general relativity, space can expand with no intrinsic limit on its rate; thus, two galaxies can separate more quickly than the speed of light if the space between them grows.03:11

Flandry_talks about GPU, DSP and CPU like they are separate entities06:04
ali1234that's how ARM SoCs achieve such low power usage06:04
luke-jrFlandry_: they're logically different06:05
luke-jrlike, you can have 3 partitions on a HD that are logically all different disks, but really only one disk06:05

GAN900Flandy_, N900 uses the DSP for video stuff.06:08

jaemgive me a real Linux distro over some crazy Java stack any day09:23
sgbirchWhy doesnt Nokia make n900 rum android apps?09:23
jaembesides, Google owns enough of my life as it is09:23
jaemsgbirch, it's not quite that simple09:23
johnxsgbirch, should be possible, but it wouldn't run them as well as a native android device09:23
johnxstill might be doable if you needed that one killer app09:23
jaemsgbirch, Android has the Linux kernel, yes, but it's not "Linux" in the conventional (misused) sense09:23
jaemI'd much rather be able to hack on C++ in a terminal on my phone09:24
sgbirchBut since it is the linux kernel ...09:24
johnxsgbirch, this will give you some background on what's required:
sgbirchSeems like it wouldnt be too difficult09:25
johnxit's not exactly trivial, but it should be doable09:25
ali1234"It turns out that Android uses it own version of libc and all binaries get linked against that. This causes a problem when a libc already exists on your system."09:27
sgbirchIt would really help see the n90009:27
ali1234that is completely untrue09:27
microlithdoesn't it use uClibc?09:27
johnxmaybe, but what does android have in terms of apps that we don't?09:27
ali1234android uses uclibc and guess what - it can easily coexist with glibc09:28
sgbirchMarket acceptance09:28
*** hellwolf-n810 has joined #maemo09:28
sgbirchEspecially in US where nokia isnt well known09:28
jaemsgbirch, maybe, but Android apps probably wouldn't integrate well09:30
jaemand intentions aside, it might end up looking (on the face of it) like Nokia is saying "we can't do this properly ourselves, so we're doing it improperly with someone else's stuff"09:31
jaemI'm not saying it's bad09:31
johnxsooo, you think it would be a good idea for them to spend lots of man-months on half-assed android-app coexistence?09:31
sgbirchN900 is powerful enough to run android in a chroot09:31
jaembut just that it would probably look bad on their part09:31
jaemand wouldn't be worth the effort, as johnx said09:31
johnxsgbirch, not as fast as the droid can run android apps, and it's (by various accounts) the first android phone to not be terribly sluggish09:31
microlithI could see there being a port of it at some point, but it won't be official09:31
jaemwhich ARM toolchain does the N900 use?  -arm7?09:31
sgbirchI think it would be a good community initiative. Like wine09:32
microlithjohnx: it's the first android phone to use better than an ARM11 CPU09:32
jaemsgbirch, granted, but it will probably stay like wine09:32
johnxsgbirch, yup, so you better get working on it :)09:32
jaemI don't hink Nokia cares/wants to do that09:32
Pavlovthe droid is nice09:32
ali1234wine is pretty awful - nothing works well in it except popular games (ie source engine)09:33
sgbirchJohnx: i may do just that09:33
ali1234and they've been working on it for 15 years09:33
sgbirchYou missed the point about wine, it was an example of a user iniative.09:34
sgbirchAn android port would be much easier than wine09:35
johnxa community effort ... for nokia marketing reasons?09:35
sulxwell wine isn't awful. its better than nothing09:35
johnxmost of the android stuff is reimplentations of stuff available on other platforms except for a couple real gems09:35
ali1234but it's worse than running windows in virtualbox for almost everything09:35
jaemsgbirch, ali1234, what's even crazier (albeit cool) is the LUK project09:35
sgbirchNo ... The itch we scratch is access to android appa09:35
jaemit's like Wine for the kernel09:36
johnxseems easier/more productive to just do native maemo "ports" ...09:36
*** ZrZ has quit IRC09:37
ali1234yeah. surely if you wanted to actually get access to a large number of apps, you should make a iphone compatibility layer?09:37
johnxthough the reality is the best answer is usually in the grey area: just like a fair number of things are based on libwine09:37
sgbirchIphone is closed source .. Much more difficult09:38
johnxthere's an objective-c iphone-like layer for maemo already09:39

*** jep_ has quit IRC11:09
jaemI think we all are in agreement, but everyone misunderstands everyone else and thinks we're not11:10
timeless_mbpooh, you could be in finland11:10
jaemtimeless_mbp, oh?11:10
jaemthat bad?11:10
timeless_mbpstandard operating procedure11:10
mavhcask everyone to summerise the current state of play11:10
jaemjohnx, I wonder how well a hybrid chat/forum model would work11:11
timeless_mbpmaking things like summer is like handing out rose-colored glasses11:11
jaemsomething where you could have publicly viewable discussions, with comments, but the actual dicussion is limited to invited users11:11
jaemmore like IM/blog/forum mashup11:11
JaffaXisdibik: If you read large swathes of tmo, and can distinguish something new & intefresting over something trollish/old; you're perfect11:11
jaemso if I think your comment is valuable, I invite you into the discussion11:11
jaemif not, then I can just ignore it11:11
Jaffajaem. IBM had an old o,protoype thing like that11:11
jaemand the discussion itself stays clean11:11
ali1234yeah that sounds great, it really won't exclude people even more than the current system11:12
johnxjaem, that sounds a little too ... stilted? kind of awkward11:12
Jaffajaem: and I suppose that'*s kinda what Google Wave is.11:12
Jaffa(bloody N900 kb)11:12
XisdibikJaffa: id probably hit that 50% of the time, but i could learn with practice,  i dont swathe through large amounts of tmo.  that might change once i have my n900 though :D11:12
mavhcwell, it might be once they have better permissions11:12
JaffaXisdibik: Read most of IRC?11:12
jaemJaffa, that's actually kind of what I was thinking of, only with public comments11:13
XisdibikI have it open alot, im not actively reading each line, but if im using my laptop i try to catch most of what people say11:13
jaemthe comments could be voted up or down, and optionally be hidden11:13
jaembut the difference is that everyone could view the discussion11:13
jaemand have their say11:13
JaffaThere're some old hands like qwerty12 who read a *lot* of tmo and IRC and would perfect contributors.11:13
jaembut they could only directly contribute if they had something valuable to say11:14
jaeme.g. allow the noise, but separate it from the signal11:14
Jaffajaem: How would that be decided? Previous history? (if so, how did they get that history ;-))11:14
johnxthat sounds like a recipe for favoritism...11:14
jaeminvitation from someone in the discussion11:14
jaemjohnx, it does11:14
jaemI was just throwing it out there11:15
mavhcvote up/down11:15
jaemit has all sorts of problems11:15
jaemmavhc, yes, with mods11:15
*** ZrZ has quit IRC11:15
jaembut it's an interesting idea11:15
johnxin terms of managing 500+ post discussions, slashdot is a good model11:15
Xisdibikthen, i volunteer qwerty12 for the job ;)11:15
mavhcslashdot is ahead of the curve with moderation, because they've been at it longer11:15
*** ZrZ has joined #maemo11:15
Jaffajaem: interesting idea indeed11:16
*** rsalveti has quit IRC11:16
jaemJaffa, once you had a history, maybe, but initially you'd be "promoted" from the comment thread by votes/mods/current members of the discussion11:16
johnxyup, they've been handling those 500+ post, various-intelligence level, no-two-people-who-know-each-other situations very well11:16
mavhcseems like every discussion system starts with "everyone can post", then "ops block users", then "vote up/down", then...11:16
jaemmavhc, yeah11:16
jaemand there is no perfect solution11:16
jaemhas anyone seen an actual implementation of what I'm proposing?11:16
JaffaIt sounds, in practicality, a lot like Slashdot11:17
mavhcbut you're recognising the person, not the post11:17
jaemJaffa, hmm... except that there's no main thread11:17
timeless_mbpeverything in forums evolves to be like slashdot11:17
mavhcyou want to +v people statically11:17
JaffaSignal separated from noise by mods, getting consistenly promoted gets you karma which raises your default post level11:17
jaemI'm thinking of separating the signal from the noise, but allowing the noise - so that people can flame, but you don't have to see it11:17
Jaffamavhc: /.'s karma does that11:17
johnxtimeless_mbp, that's becuase slashdot is really a moderated mailing list with a web front-end11:18
jaemand the people who aren't flaming aren't going to invite flamers in to the conversation11:18
mavhcJaffa: so it's a combination of both?11:18
johnx6 months ago I would have said we don't have the numbers to do /. style meta-moderation, but I'm beginning to change my mind :)11:18
JaffaOf course, /. has a limited number of new threads each day.11:18
johnxJaffa, they also have firehose now11:19
Jaffajohnx: we might not need M2 yet, but straight "crowd-sourced" moderation may be practicable11:19
*** DantonicN800 has joined #maemo11:19
Jaffajohnx: true, I've looked at it once I think11:19
mavhcbut in general it's more of a "interesting comments" system than a "support forum"11:20
johnxand for gods' sake: real threads11:20
jaemjohnx, yeah11:20
johnxmavhc, but it handles the situation that eventually topics will diverge, and this isn't necessarily bad11:20
* RST38h moos11:20
jaemcomments vs threads is a distinction I'd like to make11:20
johnxbut at the same time it's nice to be able to ignore the people who are talking about something different11:20
RST38hSo, gentlemen, what is the topic of the day? =)11:21
johnxRST38h, comments11:21
jaemRST38h, and threads11:21
jaemand eggs11:21
RST38hYou know what I want...11:21
mavhcwithout threads and the ability to ignore sub threads, and basically be usenet, you can't cope11:21
RST38hA generalized filter interface, with a bunch of obscure stuff11:21
johnxheh. this solves it: make the turing test a quiz on maemo :)11:21
mavhcusenet with karma11:21
RST38hBut among this stuff, I owould like ot have "filter by user's account age" ;)))11:21
ali1234i'd like that too, but i'd probably use it the opposite way you do11:22
RST38hIf you hide it among other filtering options, it is less likely to raise segregation alarms among some issues-waving people11:22
mavhcall forum software should be a web frontend to an nntp system11:22
RST38hali1234: It is fine, as long as we are both satisfied :)11:22
RST38hmavhc: Why not move to google groups then?11:23
RST38hjohnx: Somebody already proposed requiring a valid tablet MAC address for some forums =)11:23
*** tiflsc has joined #maemo11:24
qwerty12RST38h: That's fucking brilliant, but make it an IMEI number, instead11:24
johnxalso: we *shouldn't* check for duplicated MACs. anyone who went to the trouble of tracking down an Nxx0 MAC address "passes the test"11:25
mavhcthat'll work for about 10 mins11:25
RST38hqwerty: This will limit access to people with N900s. Don't wanna do that11:27
*** rZZZr has quit IRC11:27
johnxactually, I think we should take a page from google and their captcha system11:27
ali1234it's an interesting dilemma that you have11:27
ali1234when somebody asks for an advanced feature the response is "we can't do that, think of the USERS"11:27
qwerty12RST38h: Well, to the N900 fora then. That's where a lot of the idiots can be found11:27
ali1234but the users are the one set of people you're not actually interested in listening to11:27
*** mikhas has joined #maemo11:28

ali1234maybe you should accept them for what they are, and move on11:34

ali1234qemu isn't an emulator now?16:26
crashanddie_The hint is in the name16:26
ali1234yes, that's kind of what i thought too16:26
javispedrobut the SDK isn't.16:26
ali1234but the thing that lets you run armel binaries on a PC is16:27
crashanddie_ali1234, technically speaking, qemu is a "CPU Emulator"16:27
javispedroali1234: but that's what most people talk about when they refer to the "emulator".16:27
ali1234javispedro: the SDK includes an emulator16:27
crashanddie_so, being pedantic, to answer alterego's question, "no, you can't rotate the CPU emulator"16:27
javispedrosince, oh! the armel target doesn't even boot h-d.16:27
javispedroali1234: and it includes a calendar application now, but that doesn't mean people should call it "the calendar".16:28
crashanddie_but yeah, people are right in using the term "emulator" for the SDK and stuff16:28
javispedrocrashanddie_: no, because it tricks them into thinking the GUI they're seeing is being emulated. it isn't. it's running diferent binaries.16:29
crashanddie_who gives a?16:29
* alterego doesn't.16:29

crashanddie_Just ask that people who provide bug reports also provide a valid mac address16:30
crashanddie_if people are too stupid to understand that things don't work the same on-device and in the emulator, they're idiots16:31
crashanddie_you have the same limitation on *every platform*16:31
javispedrospecially when on this platform the SDK is _not_ an emulator.16:31
crashanddie_javispedro, fuck off16:31
ali1234where i come from, an SDK is a compiler and some includes and libraries16:32
ali1234maybe not even the compiler16:32
* javispedro feels a dejà vú now.16:32
ali1234calling the emulator "the SDK" is just wrong16:32
ali1234it's even more misleading than calling it "an emulator"16:32
javispedroit's not an emulator!16:33
crashanddie_javispedro, the correct spelling is: Déjà vu16:33
ali1234nor is it an SDK!16:33
crashanddie_(minus capital)16:33
alteregoali1234: he was right in what I Was talking about, I wasn't using the arm target, so the actual emulator (qemu) was not being used.16:33
javispedrowhile I don't agree either with calling it "SDK", at least that's what Nokia calls it.16:33
ali1234what you are calling the SDK is infact an entire distribution of maemo, for x8616:33
alteregoHow about SDE then :P16:33
crashanddie_javispedro, iPhone emulator runs different binaries, blackberry emulator runs different binaries, android emulator runs different binaries16:34
ali1234hell, it would probably cause a lot less confusion if those virtual images... instead of having all the scratchbox cruft inside an ubuntu image or whatever... if they were just maemo x86 running native16:34

ShapeshifterJust because pulseaudio and alsa suck, doesn't mean mpd sucks >.>17:25
ali1234this is it though, pulseaudio does not suck for me17:26
ali1234what sucks is programs that don't bother to implement pulse support, instead taking the "not invented here" approach17:26
Shapeshifterthe only ever reason to use alsa is because OSS doesn't support USB sound recording (i.e. webcam mics), which is reallly sad, but other then that it's totally awesome.17:26
Shapeshifterali1234: pulse support? *rolleyes17:27
ali1234yes pulse support17:27
Shapeshifterali1234: run it through padsp.17:27
rangeHmmm. I think the mpd I'm listening to right now has pulse support.17:27
ali1234padsp emulates OSS, not ALSA17:27
ali1234so it's only useful for a subset of all broken apps17:28
ali1234but hey, if you're too lazy to implement it, you could always just use gstreamer17:28
RST38hShould we also implement support for ALSA, ESD, ARTS?17:28
Shapeshifterali1234: so you think that all apps need to start supporting the inane alsa/pulse duct-tape solution?17:28
ali1234especially not ESD and ARTS, nobody important has used those for at least 10 years17:29

GeneralAntillesalterego, what, and step all over christexaport's shoes? ;)18:31

RST38hAlthough they have changed the design in the wrong way lately18:34
RST38hJaffa: Kinda18:34
RST38hJaffa: It is different from the normlal blog because they provide quality news (rather than random stuff) and periodically do specialized tutorials18:34
RST38hWith code snippets and stuff18:34
RST38hSo, the article quality at newlc is about the same as you propose18:35
JaffaAh, agreed. Ther's a space for that - but as lardman says, starts being real work then.18:35
RST38hBut they just keep the flow, not doing weekly stuff18:35
* Jaffa will leave high quality in-depth journalism to christaexport for now.18:35

RST38h1. We have a bunch of blogs from individuals, of different quality18:37
RST38h2. We have an aggregator of these blogs18:37
RST38h3. We have a forum18:37
RST38hOne thing we miss (and I guess this is what Jaffa is trying to achieve) is a "manual" aggregator that only collects the top quality blog entries and removes all repeats18:38
JaffaRST38h: Correct.18:38

RST38hlardman: Exactly20:45
Macerdamn. ok20:45
lbtactive link would be great...20:45
RST38hlardman: The reason why this data is not just a bunch of global vars is to let Maemo take the whoel appdata and save it to disk, afaik20:45
lardmanRST38h: so if the fact that the struct holds a pointer to a gtk widget counts towards the ref counting that's fine20:45

*** Jiten has joined #maemo21:30
*** MuJ has joined #maemo21:30
*** Macer_ has joined #maemo21:30
PaulFertserStskeeps: the first and main issue is initramfs compatibility with 2.6.30 kernel. Major number for mmcblk0 was changed, which obviously produced strange and unexpected problems due to static device nodes in initramfs.21:31
Stskeepsright, we normally call it initfs21:31
Stskeepsand yes, that'd do some problems21:31
luke-jrPaulFertser: should have been expected21:32
*** nasmajoh has joined #maemo21:32
luke-jrnothing newsworthy there21:32
PaulFertserStskeeps: very dire problems i'd say since it's kind of hard to debug without any good feedback whatsoever, i needed to compile a kernel with a framebuffer.21:32
*** Meizirkki_ has quit IRC21:32
luke-jrPaulFertser: you should be compiling your kernel w/ a fb anyway :P21:32
luke-jrPaulFertser: the evdev stuff changed too IIRC21:33
luke-jrso I bet you couldn't use arrow keys there21:33
PaulFertserluke-jr: hm, i hoped that the recent initfs is supposed to be compatible with the latest kernels. And yes, keys do not work but i didn't bother, just waited for timeout.21:33
StskeepsPaulFertser: the good news is that initfs can be skipped.21:33
Stskeepsor modified.21:34
luke-jrPaulFertser: sure, depending on what you mean by "recent"21:34
luke-jrlp:~luke-jr/+junk/n8x0-bootmenu-autodetect-evdev <-- branch of bootmenu that fixes the keyboard issue21:34
PaulFertserStskeeps: when i skipped initfs, i got the device powered off in a minute, so special care should be taken to start all those caring daemons.21:34
luke-jrlp:~luke-jr/+junk/n8x0-bootmenu-kexec <-- bootmenu w/ kexec support (untested)21:34

Stskeepsluke-jr: and why didn't you submit those patches? :P21:35
luke-jrStskeeps: I pushed them to LP and told someone on IRC21:35
luke-jrthat's how I submit stuff21:35
PaulFertserStskeeps: another problem is that initfs assumes that initramfs is mounted rw which wasn't true for my kernel.21:35
timeless_mbpPaulFertser: isn't that more of a mistake in your kernel?21:35
luke-jrPaulFertser: err, initramfs is usually read-only21:35
luke-jrIIRC, most of the time it's squashfs21:36
PaulFertserStskeeps: other minor issues with debian included a segfaulting plugin in ts.conf, slightly wrong xorg.conf i copied from somewhere, missing pointercal, stuff like that.21:36
StskeepsPaulFertser: yeah, that initfs is mounted rw? that's new21:36
*** Macer has joined #maemo21:36
pupnik_we should do some security auditing21:36
PaulFertsertimeless_mbp: i assume, no. It's common to mount root ro by default. And on n810 it's not actually initramfs, rather a NAND partition with jffs2 on it.21:36

luke-jrwhy is down :(21:38
PaulFertserluke-jr: well, that means it's probably in error either in my kernel (compiled without tmpfs) or lack of /etc/fstab on initfs for whatever reason or something like that. Anyway i do not see a reason to copy linuxrc from new_root anywhere, i think it can be started from there as well.21:38

*** timeless has quit IRC21:39

*** tom-davidson has quit IRC21:44

ali1234luke-jr: git diff <- outputs a patch21:46

*** sjaensch has quit IRC21:47
crashanddieprobably one of the best slashdot comments ever:
PaulFertserluke-jr: yes, but what if you want to send an e-mail that has description, commit message and patch and is directly applicable with "git am"? I tried to do the same with bazaar but couldn't find a way, somewhere it's written that it's not desired function.21:47
luke-jrPaulFertser: bzr-svn is completely transparent; you almost never notice the other end is Subversion21:47
PaulFertserluke-jr: same with git-svn i think21:47
*** Macer_ has quit IRC21:47
luke-jrPaulFertser: it's not desired, as such a method inherently loses a lot of info21:47
* Stskeeps ponders idly that most people favour turning into a non-profit foundation/company on
ali1234luke-jr: with git it does not lose any info, because the patch files it outputs retain all the commit data21:48

Chanidon't leave your n900 charging overnight. this is hte second time I've gone to sleep with it nearly done charging, and woken up with it totally dead and refusing to charge21:48

luke-jranyhow, git and bzr are both nice21:49
luke-jrgit just has a learning curve, whereas bzr is more user friendly21:49
ali1234i will agree with that21:49
ali1234i didn't like git until about 3 months after i started using it21:49
ali1234then it clicked21:49
RST38hChani: Never happened here21:50
luke-jrI'm disappointed that not even git supports proper cherry picking21:50
ali1234anyway, when you merge on git, you get a commit merge, unless there was no merge conflicts. that commit will appear in an exported patch series, preserving the merge info21:50
ali1234and, git cherry-pick has always worked fine for me21:51
luke-jrali1234: when I had to cherry-pick with git, it didn't act like it saved ANY metainformation, except a revision ID in the log message21:52

crashanddiething is, the layout is like 90% the same as what they're using now22:07
PaulFertserStskeeps: wouldn't it be nice to have all the necessary daemons started from rootfs rather than from initfs? And also i'm afraid some of them are compiled for OABI.22:08
crashanddieI don't have the nice shiny 3d film on the card, nor the certificates, but still22:08
StskeepsPaulFertser: nah, they're not22:08

StskeepsPaulFertser: but they're built for uclibc22:10
PaulFertserStskeeps: i think i saw some error about OABI during boot of initfs so i enabled OABI_COMPAT, i think i can run readelf on all initfs binaries when i get access to the device again.22:11
*** Ufoeke has quit IRC22:11
Stskeepsit's always good to support oabi i guess22:11
*** Ufoeke has joined #maemo22:11
PaulFertserStskeeps: why?22:12
PaulFertserStskeeps: to run obsolete binary-only stuff? i'm not going into this discussion again ;)22:12
StskeepsPaulFertser: i think error may be from uclibc built with oabi support? dunno22:13
alteregogrrr :(22:13
PaulFertserStskeeps: i think always requiring initfs to start daemons is not exactly common way anyway and might be confusing for the newcomers.22:15
StskeepsPaulFertser: you need tricks on these devices.22:15
*** JoakimCarli has joined #maemo22:15
PaulFertserStskeeps: i think if you run the daemons early in the boot process when you start /sbin/init directly it'd be still ok.22:16
StskeepsPaulFertser: that's what some do, yeah22:16
Stskeepslike a init=/linuxrc or something22:17
pupnik_the internet is just getting crippled right now22:19
pupnik_dude made a fielf22:20
pupnik_dude made a field-of-view patch for bioshock.  they apparently got it removed from the net?22:21
PaulFertserStskeeps: (/linuxrc) it's still too hackish imho, i think many embedded platforms run without additional scripts.22:21
*** fluff|afk is now known as fluff22:22
StskeepsPaulFertser: yes, but n8x0 isn't a typical one. either way, your port, your choice22:22
PaulFertserStskeeps: i can't see what makes n8x0 that different from others. Most devices are equipped with a watchdog of some kind and require initialisation of other devices on boot.22:23
PaulFertserCan anyone please tell me how is internal SD card connected on n810? I'm wondering what kernel option should i enable for it to work.22:26
alteregoAnyone here ever had to become a maintainer of a package that already had a maintainer in the maemo5 extras promotional interface?22:27
alteregoI'm clicking on the "become maintainer" link but nothing seems to happen after I follow that process.22:27
javispedrooh, it worked for me a few weeks ago :P22:27
alteregojavispedro: did the process take any time?22:27
alteregoOr was it instantaneous?22:28
RST38halterego: why not add your name to the maintainers line inside the package itself?22:28
javispedroinstantaneous and without confirmation :P22:28
alteregoRST38h: already done22:28
RST38hwon't that make guess you as the second maintainer?22:28
javispedromy guess is that everything is dead22:28
javispedrowasn't the autobuilder broken a few hours ago?22:28
qwerty12_N900We need you, Niels!22:28
StskeepsPaulFertser: as mmc.. :P22:28
javispedroyeah, he's out for a few weeks and everything break.22:29
PaulFertserStskeeps: omap-mmc? That's for external.22:29
RST38hThat is not normal btw. X-Fade leaves for vacation and hell breaks loose22:29

javispedroyou should configure your client to use N910 or N920 instead of N90122:34

ali1234that's the /sys platform driver name22:40
ali1234it does appear to be the same thing as omap-mmc22:42
PaulFertserali1234: i understand22:42
PaulFertserali1234: now i read the code and i see it's multi-slot driver, with 2 slots specified for n800/n810.22:42
PaulFertserali1234: thanks again :)22:42

KMFDMthis is incredibly annoying. i flashed my device but as the -devel and -testing repos refuse to work I can't re-add a lot of apps22:54
KMFDMI guess i'm going to manually download the debs and install that way22:54
lbtso KMFDM what's up with the repos?22:54
KMFDM 404 not found [ip: 80]22:56
