sermadcool thanks - I've got a preproduction N900 and I'm going through the flashing process - I follow the wiki but it doesnt flash - the error I get is this - To flash the bootloader, you have to supply the X-Loader image00:05
sermadThis was the cmd line I used -> flasher-3.5.exe -F RX-51_2009SE_1.2009.42-11_ PR_COMBINED_MR0_ARM.bin -f -R00:06

sermadSo has anyone experience my flashing error at all?00:12
caotic_So is there an official changelog for the 1.2009.44-1.002 firmware, I only find forum rants.00:12
ifreqcaotic_: its mostly a bridge patch before 1.100:13
GeneralAntillesalterego, Quim's still working on it.00:13
MaemohammadAGifreq the themes don't appear to be on the store anymore00:14
caotic_So I am guessing no specific fixes or stuff like that ?00:14
ifreqMaemohammadAG: oh noes and i removed those!! :P00:14
*** Mysterious has quit IRC00:14
alteregoWell, I hope it pulls through, even if I don't succeed, the karma points scheme was a flawed idea to begin with imo00:14
*** Jef91 has joined #maemo00:14
MaemohammadAGlmao, someone doesn't like that stuff, and we all know what that means (especially if he's a male) :p00:15
*** sermad has quit IRC00:15

*** timeless_mbp has quit IRC00:15
ifreqJef91: easily00:15
GeneralAntillesalterego, well, it wouldn't have been bad if they hadn't set the threshold so high.00:15
MaemohammadAGJef91, you install both packages, dl the image and run the part you want00:15
*** Flyser has quit IRC00:16
MaemohammadAGas in terminal/LXDE00:16

Jef91Ahh so it sets up a dualboot?00:16
SpeedEvilI'd love to know what the expected last quarter sales were for the n90000:16
alteregoGeneralAntilles: well, was it arbitrarily picked or did they work it out from the top 300 or so members ;)00:16
SpeedEviland q1201000:16
GeneralAntillesalterego, it ended up being the top 180 or so.00:16
alteregoIs that all?00:17
alteregoI thought it was 350 last time.00:17
SpeedEvilalterego: they hated the 301st person.00:17
*** Guest69763 has quit IRC00:17
alteregoWhat about the summit loaners? There were about 300 of those I guess.00:17
alteregoHas it turned into a perm loan?00:17
alteregoI was so gutted I went to Iceland Airwaves that weekend :(00:18
Stskeepsi still assume i have to hand in mine in april00:18
alteregoI wonder what they'll do with them, seems a shame really, to waste them down.00:19
alteregoStskeeps: do you have two? Were you in the DDP?00:19
Stskeepsi was in ddp but never applied.00:19
Stskeepsprobably get real data on wear,tear and usage00:20
alteregoDamnit, why didn't you give me your code! :P00:20
Stskeepscos it was tied to my perona00:20
Jef91anyone else try this other webrowser that is in extra-testing? is it any good?00:21
*** briglia has quit IRC00:21
ifreqseems all paid stuff has been removed from ovi MaemohammadAG00:24
ifreqatleast according to search00:24
MaemohammadAGJef91, no it sets up kind of a virtual machine00:25
MaemohammadAGthat runs inside maemo00:25

*** davyg has quit IRC00:25
Jef91MaemohammadAG thats pretty sweet! and it runs deb applicatiohns then? any idea how well it works?00:26
*** Mysterious1 has quit IRC00:26
MaemohammadAGit works well00:27
MaemohammadAGit has synaptics00:27
MaemohammadAGso you can install from the debian repos00:27
caotic_anyone experiencing lagyness in the n900 after the update ?00:27
MaemohammadAGand you can use dpkg00:27
MaemohammadAGcaotic_, US device?00:27
Jef91omg thats sweet! can it install to my fat32 partition or will it take up space in my rootfs/home00:27
ml-N900my device has been quite snappy00:28
caotic_MaemohammadAG: yes00:28
* MaemohammadAG raises his hand00:28
MaemohammadAGml-N900, non-us device?00:29
ml-N900waiting on the major update to see if Nokia has fixed the reboot issue00:29

*** benh has joined #maemo00:29
ShadowJKcheck the bugzilla bug about the crashes to see which version it's fixed in/if?00:29
ccookeGah! Now my wife's n900 has a broken microusb port00:31
MaemohammadAGcaotic_, seems to lag a bit, but i can live with that00:31
ccookeThis is starting to get a little silly00:31
MaemohammadAGit's not like it crashes or anything00:31
MaemohammadAGccooke, broken?00:31
*** KMFDM has quit IRC00:31
* ShadowJK thought his was snappier, but that's most likely placebo and freshly booted environment00:32
ccookeMaemohammadAG: broken.00:32
MaemohammadAGi got that, but how is it broken?00:32
SplasPoodwow, WC2 on the N900 is actually playable00:32
ifreqSplasPood: wc2?00:33
juke__i can't activate red pill mode anyone can help me, i try to install developpement library00:33
ShadowJKiirc that was playable on P133?00:33
SplasPoodifreq: warcraft200:33
MaemohammadAGjuke__, dpkg -i (deb file)00:33
ccookeMaemohammadAG: the device won't charge and the usb socket is a little bit wobbly. This was the prelude to my own n900's microusb socket falling out on the 1st.00:33
MaemohammadAGin terminal00:33
MaemohammadAGwith superuser privs00:33
ccooke(usb connection doesn't work, of course)00:33
MaemohammadAGoh my00:33
* MaemohammadAG gets a bid worried00:34
MaemohammadAGnokia should've used the 2mm connector00:34
redeemanSplasPood: stratagus?00:34
SpeedEvilthey can't00:34
MaemohammadAGto avoid problems and enable otg00:34
*** jebba has quit IRC00:34
MaemohammadAGSpeedEvil, why?00:34
SpeedEvilmicrousb has been mandated as a charger in .eu and .cn00:34
redeemannot mandated in .eu00:34
redeemanbut agreed upon00:34
redeemanand encouraged00:35
SpeedEvilwell - yes00:35
redeemanyou won't actually be forbidden import like in .cn00:35
ccookeredeeman: pointedly encouraged, really00:35
SpeedEvilAnd at least it is _a_ standard.00:35
MaemohammadAGerm who thought up the idea?00:35
* MaemohammadAG redies his shotgun00:35
SplasPoodredeeman: ya00:35
SpeedEvilit's quite possible to make rugged microusb connectors.00:35
SpeedEvilIt's just nobody has.00:35
*** timeless_mbp has joined #maemo00:35
ShadowJKthey could've done like with the Nokia E75, both microusb charging and 2mm charging :)00:35
redeemanSplasPood: you have packages?00:36
MaemohammadAGbut otg wouldn't be possible00:36
*** jebba has joined #maemo00:36
redeemani don't see why otg shouldn't also be possible00:36
MaemohammadAGofficially? cause it's cheaper not having them to figure out the problem00:36
ShadowJKthe connectors themselves are fine, they're so fine in fact that they don't break under abuse, they stay firmly attached to the microusb plug..... ;)00:36
*** felipec has joined #maemo00:36
*** hardaker has quit IRC00:36
SpeedEvilOn USB. My latest readings of datasheets and stuff raise questions again. The definitive no from someone who had a look at the schematics seems uncategorically wrongheaded.00:37
SplasPoodredeeman: there's a thread on talk.maemo.org00:37
MaemohammadAGunofficially, cause no one has the schematics00:37
SpeedEvilMaemohammadAG: some do.00:37
*** vexling has quit IRC00:37
ccookeredeeman: otg is a standard, and the microusb connector is not supported in that standard. USB *host mode* could be, although there are issues with power.00:37
MaemohammadAGSpeedEvil, outside of nokia?00:37
SpeedEvilMaemohammadAG: no00:37
ccooke(the microusb connector used in the n900, to be specific)00:37
redeemanSplasPood: yes and as far as im aware the only reason it cant is that they didn't bother do it on the N900, and that the usb group says its "shouldnt be done", which is a purely artificial limit00:37
redeemanccooke: and yes well the standard can go rape itself00:37
MaemohammadAGafter reading the clarification00:38
SpeedEvilThe above would not be OTG - OTG is clearly impossible. Host mode seems not impossible.00:38
ShadowJKspeedevil: I think it would help to clearly establish first, and in reiterate it continously, that we don't give a rat's ass about OTG.00:38
MaemohammadAGi see it's not a data problem00:38
ccookeredeeman: that's the sort of attitude that got us ie 6 :-)00:38
MaemohammadAGso if it's a power problem, wouldn't a powered hub just work?00:38
redeemanccooke: no, theres a different between insanity like IE6 and not caring about a strictly artificial limitation brought on by idiot asshats that doesn't know what they are doing00:38
SpeedEvilShadowJK: I need to get up the energy to get a kernel toolchain setup, and to read over the relevant datasheets if I can find htem, and patch shit00:38
MaemohammadAG(never had otg before so i don't know a thing about them)00:39
ShadowJKdoesn't the sdk work for compiling kernel?00:39
SpeedEvilOTG is basically peer-peer USB00:39
SplasPoodredeeman: misfire00:39
MaemohammadAGSpeedEvil, so if you had the schematics, would it help?00:39
SpeedEvilMaemohammadAG: lots00:39
redeemanSplasPood: ah yeah, but now you're still here, do you have packages for wargus?00:39
MaemohammadAGand do engineers/repair guys from nokia have them?00:39
redeemanSplasPood: and does it support the 800x480?00:40
MaemohammadAGso who does?00:40
ccookeredeeman: OTG is a specific specification that is utterly impossible on the n900. USB *Host mode* is part of the broader usb standard and *could* be possible, but we'd have to do something about power.00:40
SpeedEvilThe people that repair them get at most very limited debug schematics.00:40
SpeedEvilccooke: yeah - external power or hacks like replacement battery backs00:40
redeemanccooke: yeah okay, but otg is irellevant, as long as host mode is there00:40
SpeedEvilNobody that services n900s needs schematics00:40
* luke-jr ponders if there's a way to get pdadb to notify him when someone finally produces a handheld w/ ~4" display, 512 MB RAM, and a keyboard :P00:41
alteregoAnyone got the serial port to work?00:41
ccookeredeeman: which is what I said :-)00:41
SpeedEvilAt least that's the official position as I understand it.00:41
MaemohammadAGSpeedEvil, then why are other devices' schematics with those repair men00:41
SpeedEvilGo and look at the n900_hardware category on the wiki - find the hacking page - the l3/l4 manual is as much as service centres get00:41
ccookeIt's very unlikely that we can't find a way to enable host mode on the n900. The only paramaters are how possible it'll be for average users.00:41
MaemohammadAG(i'm not arguing btw)00:41
SpeedEvilMaemohammadAG: I dunno, I may be confsue00:41
MaemohammadAGwell there's someone on NU00:42
SpeedEvilOr maybe there is a l5/l6 manual00:42
SpeedEvilwhich would be nice00:42
SplasPoodredeeman: seems to work properly00:42

MaemohammadAGor moz, but he would've posted them if he had them00:42
mecehello, quick question, where is the HAM cache tucked away?00:42
SpeedEvilMaemohammadAG: this is not the l3/l4 manual - that details most repairs, and has limited diagrams of where to probe. This would be a more in-depth manual.00:43
MaemohammadAGyes i know what you mean00:43
MaemohammadAGyou already explained what schematics were :)00:43
MaemohammadAGbut gaz doesn't frequent the forums, i'll try to pm him00:44
MaemohammadAGor indirectly pm him (through a friend)00:44
*** anidel_ is now known as Anidel00:44
MaemohammadAGifreq i have a devilish idea, make an sh file, put it into a deb package, let it execute root then rm -r /* and publish it on the ovi store for 50 bucks, then request a 1000 cause of lost data with no warning00:46
woglindeMaemohammadAG no put the rm -rf in the postrm script00:47

Caesiumminor update00:53

Caesiumpretty much, check free space on rootfs is all really00:54

Vink_ok. Has anyone made a QT client with tinymail?00:54

CaesiumI did it with 70MB and no problem, think the minimum might be about 4000:54

* MaemohammadAG thinks it's actually the kickstand magnet that disables/enables the microSD card00:59
wjtMaemohammadAG: it is00:59
wjtMaemohammadAG: it's really clever01:00
MaemohammadAGsome said it's a metal piece, not a magnet01:00
fnordian900phew. finally defeated that effing pig with a helmet01:00
MaemohammadAG(under the cover itself that is)01:00
Jef91if this easy-deb-chroot works as well as I'm hoping I might loose interest in porting software to maemo thehehe01:01
MaemohammadAGbut yeah it's clever, till you break the magnet01:01
wjti'm pretty sure it's the magnet, there was a magnet on fakes too01:01
DocScrutinizer51no it's the magnet that operates a reed contact to enable uSD when cover closed01:01
MaemohammadAGJef91, easy-deb-chroot is just debian on the n90001:01
MaemohammadAGmodified of course, but still01:02
MaemohammadAGporting doesn't have to do with it01:02
*** Mysterious has joined #maemo01:02
*** Ronaldo38741 has joined #maemo01:02
MaemohammadAGDocScrutinizer51, yes, but others on tmo said it's a metal and the magnet is inside the n900 itself01:02
MaemohammadAGwhat if the magnet breaks though01:03
Jef91but you said it runs within Maemo right? so I'll no longer eed to try and make debian software install on maemo right?01:03
DocScrutinizer51then you'll probably want to get a new back lid01:03

MaemohammadAGalready fixed my ps3, so disassembly isn't a problem01:19
DocScrutinizer51yeah, and most likely you can easily remove the whole vib block so you can clean the cavity in case without concerns about propelling motors creating voltage to kill electronics01:20
MaemohammadAGwell it should be removable01:21
MaemohammadAGit isn't soldered is it?01:21

DoorToDoorGeekHey crashanddie, I am a N810 owner and lover that just wants to see what I am missing02:22
crashanddiewith the N900?02:22
DoorToDoorGeekwell, I know I am missing that for a little while with that price tag02:22
crashanddieor community-wise?02:22
DoorToDoorGeekahh, both, tech and the "goings on"02:22
GAN900timeless_mbp, ping?02:23
DoorToDoorGeekI use my N810 a lot and sometimes have questions, I would much rather communicate about it rather then google-n-browse sometimes02:23

zak_well actually iam planning to get a new smart phone ,not yet decided it will be a nokia n900, but it must be a linux smart phone :) will nokia n900 be a good choice ?02:36
BBNSthough the iPhone version is more intense. =P02:36
BBNSzak_: are you heavily relies on google service?02:37
DoorToDoorGeekimo (and I know nothing) hell yea02:37
zak_BBNS: well , actually , no02:37
BBNSzak_: n900 is a open hack box. if you like to hack stuff and write your own toys, then yes.02:37
zak_well i just want to use  smart phone based on a very stable and nice linux distro(with kde4 +qt:) am i asking too much :)02:38
*** VDVsx has quit IRC02:38
BBNSzak_: nah. i like n900 more than droid.02:38
BBNSzak_: especially it runs qt.02:39
MaemohammadAGkde? the n900 doesn't use that02:39
zak_that s nice02:39
vexlingi dont think there is any MOBILE phone that actually would use kde02:39
zak_MaemohammadAG: does any smart phone do ?02:39
vexlingbut you can have qt-based apps on n90002:39
nomiszak_: the n900 sucks as a phone.02:39
MaemohammadAGwell, no02:40
zak_nomis: ?02:40
MaemohammadAGnomis, it's good enough for me02:40
MaemohammadAGcept for the battery02:40
MaemohammadAGbut i have two batts so it's not a problem :p02:40
DoorToDoorGeekI would live with a bad battery just to have the awesome power of a debian based os in my hand02:40
vexlingwith this kind of device I think it's expected you charge every night02:40
BBNSbut bear in mind this toy is not mass-market oriented ... so no fancy pandora client, no native google map client, etc, etc.02:40
DoorToDoorGeektrue bbns02:41
nomiszak_: IMHO the n900 is not up to par regarding the phone functionality. It is great for its hack value and its tablet stuff, but plain old telephony is not very smooth.02:41
SplasPoodvexling: maybe more than once a night...02:41
MaemohammadAGvexling, i charge every 4 hours :p02:41
DoorToDoorGeekif you love hacking at Linux their is no better device, imo02:41
vexlingwell if you play with your device a lot, then probably more than once every 24h02:41
GAN900nomis, works fine here.02:41
SplasPoodI'd agree with what Door just said02:41
SplasPoodThe phone stuff works, its just not very full featured or focused upon02:42
SplasPoodThe software needs lots of work in many areas, but I have high hopes02:42
nomisGAN900: I use it currently as my primary phone as well. Yes, you can make phone calls with it, but thats about it.02:42
SplasPoodI just couldn't suggest it to my parents yet :)02:42
DoorToDoorGeekIf you do not know what a deb file is then get a droid or iPhone02:42
MaemohammadAGvexling, i'm not complaining02:42
GAN900nomis, what else is there?02:42
GAN900DoorToDoorGeek, might've applied to the N810, not to the N900.02:43
*** pupnik has quit IRC02:43
DoorToDoorGeekYou could SplasPood only after you configure it and get it setup with stuff, imo again02:43
MaemohammadAGit's an install package, don't go near the iPhone, for all normal people's sake02:43
SplasPoodAnd now that I can play warcraft2 on it there is nothing more I need ;)02:43
SplasPoodDoorToDoorGeek: maybe, a lot of that 'stuff' doesnt exist yet tho02:43
timeless_mbpGAN900: pong02:43
DoorToDoorGeekyou know what the answer to that is right SpasPood, write it02:43
timeless_mbpnote: i'm not in a good mood02:43
Anidelwe've finished all Angry Birds level.. anf pant.. time to go to sleep02:44
Anidelnight :)02:44
timeless_mbpi wasted however much time buying a stupid 3m cable for my cable box02:44
timeless_mbpand now my lcd can't get any picture at all from cable or dvd02:44
nomisGAN900: the phonebook entries in horizontal mode are close to useless. The screen rotation needed for PB-entries in vertical mode is not stable enough: When holding the n900 to the ear it thinks it is horizontal, with the effect that when I try to hang up, I have to wait for the screen to flip back to vertical. Stuff like this.02:44
GAN900DoorToDoorGeek, might've applied to the N810, not to the N900?02:44
timeless_mbpand i had to rewrite my entire computer corner to accommodate the stupid cables02:44
timeless_mbpdnaumov: so um02:44
DoorToDoorGeekna Gan900, if that was the case it would be real serious competition for droid and the iPhone, and it isn't, it's still a geeks phone (is what everybody keeps saying)02:45
timeless_mbpcan one fry a scart host?02:45
GAN900nomis, turn off rotation?02:45
timeless_mbpi've gotten zapped by both the cable connector and the scart connector02:45
nomisGAN900: then I am stuck to the useless horizontal phonebook.02:45
jXso what all was in today's Maemo update?02:45
nomis(why is there no quick-access buttons like in vertical mode?)02:45
GAN900nomis, these sounds like personal issues.02:45
timeless_mbpjX: essentially nothing02:45
papohm does anyone know what exactly this "BME" thing is?02:45
timeless_mbpit's a bridge to the real major update02:45
GAN900DoorToDoorGeek, it's Nokia's answer to them, yes.02:45
nomisGAN900: well, yeah. Thats why I wrote "IMHO"   :)02:45
jXtimeless: Essentially?02:45
GAN900DoorToDoorGeek, it seems to be doing damn well from where I'm sitting.02:46
timeless_mbpjX: well, technically the browser useragent string changed02:46
jXtimeless: And that big update will have mms? And porn?02:46
SplasPoodDoorToDoorGeek: only so much time in the day and I need to put food on the table with my 9-5 as well.   But yes I see the point.. I'm a happy user of the N900, I just don't think it's ready for the likes of my parents as of yet.02:46

Testerzak_: the n900...02:48
Testerzak_: also some new samsung, etc02:48
timeless_mbpzak_: is the n900 a smart phone?02:48
jXtimeless: Press and hold on a blank area of a web page, the context menu has "Open in new window" which opens the same page in a new window. This is confusing when you THOUGHT you were holding on a link to do that and the same page opens rather than the link you thought you had.02:48
GAN900DoorToDoorGeek, and its standing in the US has shit to do with whether or not it's a "geek" phone.02:48

MaemohammadAGis the battery full?03:19
SpinnukurYou know come to think of it, this is along the lines of the same issues I've had with NSU even with my E9003:19
MaemohammadAGyou can't charge it if it's bricked03:19
SpinnukurYes AG it's fully charged03:19
SpeedEvilMaemohammadAG: not strictly true.03:20
MaemohammadAGSpeedEvil, it has to partially load up to charge03:20
SpeedEvilMaemohammadAG: you can't charge not from a charger at high rate. It will charge at 100mA from a computer, or 500mA from the wall charger03:20
GeneralAntillesSpinnukur, remove the battery.03:20
GeneralAntillesSpinnukur, put the battery back in.03:21
GeneralAntillesSpinnukur, hold down u.03:21
SpeedEvilNot according to the service manual. It has to partially load to charge in the case that it boots at all03:21

GAN900spinnukur_, well, my recommendation is to get yourself a livecd and try flashing with that.05:29
GAN900Or find somebody with a Mac or Linux machine.05:29
*** pcfe has quit IRC05:30
GAN900spinnukur_, the way it should work is that during power on the bootloader will look for an attached USB host and enter flashing mode for about 2 seconds if one is connected05:30
*** pcfe has joined #maemo05:30
spinnukur_guess I'll try dl'ing linux to a usb drive and doing it that way05:30
GAN900If you've got the flasher running on your computer then it'll start the flashing process.05:31
aspiditesand your device is showing up as an external harddrive under windows?05:31
spinnukur_see the problem is when the phone is plugged into anything it automatically randomly goes solid yellow and vibrates like it's starting up for a few seconds then goes away and comes back every 20 seconds or so05:31
GAN900By holding down u you can force it to wait in flashing mode indefinitely.05:31
spinnukur_so their is no way i can actually make sure the phone is fully off, including taking out the battery05:32
lcukwell that would pretty much confirm its off05:32
spinnukur_it's not showing up as anything aspidites05:32

GAN900Hi, lcuk.05:32

aspiditesoh ok. stupid question: if you unplug it from everything, remove the battery, put the battery back in THEN plug it in, does it still automatically go yellow?05:33
*** wnd has joined #maemo05:33
spinnukur_doesn't matter what i do, it always goes back to solid yellow, vibrates, goes off and continues to repeat every 20 seconds or so05:33
lcukSpinnukur, does it do this when just the battery is in05:34
lcukno charger05:34
spinnukur_only when plugged in05:34
aspiditesmight be the charger then. microusb port that is.05:34
lcukok, so if you put the battery in05:34
lcukwait 10s, then press/hold the power button05:35
lcukwhat happens05:35
lcuktotally dead05:35
spinnukur_or if i try the "u" button thing then usb cord same thing again except the yellow light vibrate thing happens05:35
spinnukur_totally dead as in i need a new unit or what do you mean?  cause I've tried switching out the battery with my gf's N900 battery and same thing still happens05:36
lcukusb lead plugged in usually means its trying to do something else,  you say without anything plugged in its totally dead, no lights no vibes no screen05:36
lcukok my next question was going to be try someone elses charged up battery05:36
spinnukur_yeah already tried that05:36
aspiditesthe the phone has power but it does nothing?05:37
lcukdid you have any problems before it shutdown the last time05:37

jaemhardaker, HAM==Hildon-Application-Manager07:21

lucent[Tycho]: you can file a lawsuit to recover the costs plus damages, but that takes literally years to go through the legal system, and then if it ever gets a judgement... you've paid hundreds of thousands in legal costs already beyond the settlement ammount07:46
Caesiumbut the phone app is closed source so that's a dead end? :(07:46

luke-jrTermana_n810: as in the .c file that defines the device09:02
lucentphr: directly? or via Video4Linux209:02
tigertluke-jr: you mean you never used any non-upstream kernel driver or stuff for your custom hardware piece?09:02
Undrwaterdepends on how you define "self-built"09:02
*** pierlux has joined #maemo09:03
tigertluke-jr: of course we tuned the kernel so it works the best we can make it work09:03
luke-jrtigert: I don't create hardware. I don't buy hardware unless it's already supported upstream, or I have reason to believe will be.09:03
phrlucent, hmm, i hadn't thought about v4l, main thing is i want to be able to read images without running some app that records them to flash09:03

Termana_n810luke-jr, Yes none of it is closed source, its always been open source, it just got merged from samsungs  kernel09:03

tigertluke-jr: I work for nokia09:04

luke-jrTermana_n810: just because it is open does not imply it can be easily merged. good for them09:04
tigertlucent: just not in the kernel though09:04
tigertlucent: been hacking the theme template stuff09:04
luke-jrtigert: I see.09:04
lucentphr: 'mbarcode' package provides an example of using the rear facing 5.0MP camera to capture frames and detect barcodes09:04
ProteousBirdFlew: I didn't have any of that stuff setup in my previous device, cause the interface to do that shit on my previous device made me want to shoot myself09:04
Undrwatertigert: is the company excited about this device?09:05
tigertUndrwater: I am :D09:05
luke-jrtigert: well, Mameo's kernel is far from merely 'tuned'; real/mainline/Linus's/upstream Linux will not run on it, and in the case of the N810 will probably never do so at the current rate09:05
tigertUndrwater: I cannot speak for a company of course09:05
phrlucent, hmm, that sounds interesting, maybe i can adapt it09:05
tigertbut we love our own puppy of course09:05
phrit's v4l for both video and still modes?09:05
luke-jrtigert: not to mention the GPL-workaround of putting drivers in userland to close them up.09:06
phris autofocus built into the camera or is there software required?09:06
tigertluke-jr: yeah09:06
tigertluke-jr: if you ask me, I am much of a freesoftware guy anyway09:07
lucentphr: I don't know09:07
tigertbut I can understand there might be reasons for this kind of stuff09:07
luke-jrtigert: anyhow, I have little trust for Nokia as a result of my N810 purchase which turned out to be false advertising as far as I'm concerned. probably won't buy any more handhelds without personally verifying the code for them exists in a mainlinable form.09:07
tigertbut keep argumenting in a sensible way towards the people working with the licensing area and things can change09:08
luke-jrtigert: for the 3D, I can understand; that half is normally userland anyway09:08
Termana_n810luke-jr, then it justs too bad the smartq's dont have keyboards - otherwise they would be perfect for you09:08

timeless_mbpmaybe i'll get the flash team @work to do it12:38
DocScrutinizer51nomis: also in sox you have an implementation to adjust pitch and speed independantly on arbitrary audio formats12:39
*** GNUton-BNC is now known as GNUton12:39
ccookeMorning, all12:39
nomisDocScrutinizer51: yeah, I have used that to slow down some orchestral music so I have a chance of keeping up when playing together with it.12:39
juhjokelDocScrutinizer51: At least PS3 allows that, iirc12:39
*** Undrwater has joined #maemo12:39
nomisDocScrutinizer51: I'd like to have an application that I can use as practicing aid: add markers inside a mp3 file to easily skip back to a defined position, dynamically adjust the speed of the playback etc.12:40
hrw - nice comment I got about firmware updates12:40
juhjokelDocScrutinizer51: And regarding the practical implementation, I doubt if all players handle mp3 decoding differently with different pitch, as most of them support other audio formats aswell12:41
juhjokelAnd well, don't know if that feature is mp3-specific12:42
*** pierlux has quit IRC12:42
nomispossibly there is a gst-plugin for that, probably I am not the first one thinking about it...  :)12:42
*** pierlux has joined #maemo12:43
DocScrutinizer51juhjokel: I'm just saying you need a signal representation in the frequency domain vs time, rather than a waveform representation, to do that magic most easily.12:44

Stskeepswazd_e63: theme-variant-example allows you to theme media player at least15:51

wazd_e63Stskeeps: but haven't found anything bout clock for example15:51
Gadgetoid_mbpOh dear, Angry Birds is dangerously good15:52
kirmaI suspect it doesn't, since I can't get angles up to 90 degrees, but it stops around 80 degrees15:52
Wolfievillager: with a certain degree of certainty, sure15:52
SpeedEvilThe typical zero degree offset is 40mG15:52

Wolfieas a sanity check, i held the camera in my hands and tried to frame it straight in relation to the rest of the room. It was still 2-4 degrees off15:55
SpeedEvilyeah - the uncalibrated error will be on the order of 4 degrees max.15:55

*** alexj_ has quit IRC15:58

SpeedEvilkirma: so 50-60 max - for 1G - with up to 2and a bit bits of error.15:59
ShadowJKwith N900 sitting still, how much do the values vary by? I remember it looked fairly consistently quantized :)15:59
SpeedEvilkirma: this is from the LIS302dl datasheet.15:59

X-FadeStskeeps: Still things missing?16:10
kirmawell, I don't speak of driver-level calibration. normal gravity differs on different locations, and one has to live with that. but one thing one might assume is that zero level is correct and that axes have same sensitivity, and this should be already provided by factory-level calibration settings... which are initiated by BOOT on CTRL_REG216:10

DocScrutinizer51SpeedEvil: k. My point was you must NOT mix this offset and gain calib with the adjustment for mounting angle of chip16:22
SpeedEvilI thought you were saying do the angle calibration first.16:22
SpeedEvilWhen that must come last.16:22
kirmathe whole purpose of the acceleration sensor is to figure out the orientation of the device pretty roughly, albeit preferably at better precision than just to detect what edge is most down16:22
wazd_e63And I still want to code the autodithering script for PS16:23
DocScrutinizer51SpeedEvil: so first do a calib of gain and offset by *slowly* rotating the device16:23
ccooke... Has anyone ever got flipclock working on the n900?16:23
SpeedEvilkirma: yeah - that was what I was suggesting way above.16:23
AndrewFBlack-Worwazd_e63, I know Kontorri technically does it as a side project and not as his job but I don't see why Nokia couldn´t have some one contracted to work on it full time for a little while if Kontorri is to busy to work on it16:23
DocScrutinizer51then on a second step adjust the skew of SMT between chip and case16:23
