user_hi people00:00
DocScrutinizer51user_: hi. Any more intelectual stuff to contribute?00:00
*** N900evil_ has joined #maemo00:00
iBobi keep reading stuff regarding disabling the unstable testing repos. after installing software from them00:01
*** adalal has joined #maemo00:01
iBobits safe to keep them if i dont apt-get upgrade, right?00:01

odin_well it makes sense to release the 1.2 SDK earlier than the N900 images, due to the breaking ABI changes for Qt00:02
ShadowJKWell they'd also give you upgrades to software you've already installed, untested upgrades :)00:02
adalalhey, anyone know how to get the gps on the n900 to transfer data over bluetooth serial?00:02
ShadowJKand it eats diskspace just to have them enabled00:02
*** rdorsch has joined #maemo00:02
Corsacadalal: I think using mini-gpsd should do the trick00:02
odin_I can only support this action, so by the time the flashable image is ready there is a change all the application space is too00:02
user_i need an information00:02
lcukdoes that happen00:02
lcukShadowJK,00:02
lcukif i install app from extras00:03
lcukthen enable -devel00:03
iBobShadowJK : i gui package manger shows all the updates but i install them one by one.00:03
lcukand theres a newer/unstable version in -devel00:03
lcukdoes it offer an upgrade?00:03
user_do u know when can we get the PR1.2 update???00:03

Corsacuser_: when it's ready is the more appropriate answer00:03
iBobuser_ : when its released.00:04
user_yes but when :(00:04

*** bmidgley has joined #maemo00:10
ma3mopeople... one more question... will be possible to add 3g videocall features in the n900? maybe in future? what do you think boput it???00:10
Corsacma3mo: I think it's in PR1.200:11
ShadowJKI doubt it00:11
*** rman has joined #maemo00:11
ShadowJKI think 1.2 will have Google Talk video calls, and that'll be it :P00:12
ma3mocorsac its voip call that00:12
iBobfuck it, we dont even have such a service here , hehe00:12
*** c-s-b-n900 has quit IRC00:12
*** DocScrutinizer51 has quit IRC00:12
ma3moyes gtalk and more videocall plugins for these servers00:12
ShadowJK3G anything is a big task, because 3g is almost everything that internet does, except it's all different and doesn't work on anything else or anywhere else... lots of effort and code to write from scratch00:12
*** Docscrutemp has joined #maemo00:13
*** Docscrutemp is now known as DocScrutinizer5100:13
iBobi'd say they should work on getting the menus a smooth as possible00:13
iBobnot as good as the iphone , but as good as possible :P00:14
*** iDialekt has quit IRC00:14
*** iDialekt has joined #maemo00:14
ma3mook..... no 3g calls... java support??? when???00:15
* lbt wonders why fremantle doesn't use ntp...00:15
*** NishanthMenon has quit IRC00:15
DocScrutinizer51that'd imply "good" being an absolute metric00:15
ShadowJK3g voice calls, sure :)00:15
*** guysoft42 has quit IRC00:15
CorsacShadowJK: I already tried jabber calls, and it worked fine, though video failed00:15
Corsac(on 1.1)00:15
ShadowJKI doubt anyone will do 3g video calls00:15
ShadowJKand java will probably never have a user friendly solution...00:16
CorsacShadowJK: why not?00:16
ShadowJKthat'd require giving Sun.. err... Oracle lots of money00:16
ma3mowhat a shame of phone00:16
Corsac(if the carrier allows it)00:16
DocScrutinizer51ma3mo: stop trolling00:16
ma3moi have i stuck pixel one bright spot on display00:16
iBobma3mo : respect y00:17
ShadowJKCorsac, mostly because it's behind some 5000-page spec from the 3g consortium..00:17
iBobyourself*!00:17
CorsacShadowJK: eh?00:17
CorsacShadowJK: I meant jabber video call on 3g network00:17
ma3mosorry what isad???00:17
CorsacShadowJK: were you referring to something else?00:17
ShadowJKCorsac, jabber is internet00:18
ShadowJKCorsac, I was referring to 3g video calls00:18
ma3moshame couse its a shame device00:18
ma3moi m real not a dreamer00:18
iBobma3mo : would you like some apple pie ?00:18
CorsacShadowJK: 3g usually means data, and inet00:18
DocScrutinizer51ma3mo: internal QA rules of Nokia require zero pixel-error screen for N90000:18
CorsacShadowJK: but yeah I'm not sure we'll see operator-only video stuff00:18
ShadowJKCorsac, yes but I specifically meant 3g video calls00:18
ShadowJKnot internet video calls using 3g for internet connectivity.00:18
Corsacyeah, sorry00:18
*** msanchez has joined #maemo00:19
DocScrutinizer51ma3mo: so instead of crying here you should either get a error free device, or be a little more constructive00:20
DocScrutinizer51maybe both00:20
ma3moi have 1 dead pixel and one bright spot on lcd... no java... no jre... no 3g calls... no irda ftp between devices... no options to take pictures from frontal camera... this is constructive i m real i m talking about this device00:20
ma3mo;)00:21
iBobwell, i enjoy running aircrack wireshark and lighttpd on my mobile phone00:21
iBobstill has some bugs? yes. do I give a fuck ? no.00:21
ShadowJKma3mo, java, jre, 3g video calls and irda was never part of the N900 specs :)00:21
ShadowJKthe n900 doesn't even have the hardware for irda00:22
ma3moit has00:22
ma3moit has irda port00:22
Myrttiirda? who the fuck uses irda for anything these days? apart from emulating a Logitech harmony00:22
ma3modisassembly and have a look00:22
DocScrutinizerma3mo: no, you're not constructive. We all *know* there's no java (or we know why you think there isn't), and we know there's no IrDA00:22
*** FlavioFerreiraBR has quit IRC00:22
ShadowJKma3mo, it's not irda00:22
ma3mowhat is it???00:22
DocScrutinizerso wtf should we benefit from your wining00:22
ShadowJKma3mo, it's CIR00:23
ma3moshad what is it00:23
ma3moso???00:23
ShadowJKma3mo, if you disassemble the N900 you'll notice that it has 3 IR emitters :)00:23
ShadowJKNone of them can do irda00:23
ma3moc??? Infra Red??00:23
iBobma3mo has to be one of those windows mobile users!00:23
DocScrutinizerma3mo: and no, it has NO irda port00:23
ma3monoooo00:23
ma3moi was symbian00:23
iBobwe dont need an irda port!00:23
ma3mowm too00:23
*** noobmonk3y has joined #maemo00:23
*** msanchez has quit IRC00:24
ShadowJKma3mo, one of the emitters at the top can be used to send signals that control televisions and such... with the right apps installed00:24
iBobi wana see you guys port wireshark to wm :P00:24
KegetysI wonder if the proximity sensor could be used to receive IR as well :P00:24
MyrttiI wana see you guys spit out uncut diamonds at my command00:24
Myrttiplz?00:24
ma3moummmm00:25
ma3mook00:25
ma3mogot it00:25
DocScrutinizerKegetys: too slow probably00:25
ma3mobut java????00:25
ShadowJKma3mo, did you see java support listed on the box?00:25
ShadowJKma3mo, or in the specs?00:25
ma3monooo i want java :)00:25
ma3mobut i see umts00:26
*** goshawk has joined #maemo00:26
DocScrutinizerma3mo: if you need java, go and start a project to port it. I mean that's LINUX! you know that OS don't ya?00:26
iBobma3mo : are you sure you dont want some pie ?00:26
ma3mo???? they havre to write umts signal00:26
iBoblol00:27
ShadowJKma3mo, it does00:27
DocScrutinizerma3mo: please stop acting like a troll00:27
ma3moi dont want appleeeeeeeeeee i get it couse it was with qwerty etc00:27
iBobDocScrutinizer : you want him to port java ?00:27
iBobsuggest that he reads the specs next time.00:27
DocScrutinizernah, not really00:27
Shapeshifteroh noes java.00:28
ma3mobe real i spent 600 euros for a brick hahahaha00:28
iBobDocScrutinizer : no, its ok- he can try. :P00:28
*** Sho_ has quit IRC00:28
iBobma3mo : is that in any way our problem ? :P00:28
Shapeshifterma3mo: you DID read the feature list before buying it, right?00:28
* DocScrutinizer throws a real brick in ma3mo general direction00:29
ma3moi diiiiiid00:29
ma3moi love this device00:29
iBobok then,00:29
iBobhave a nice day,00:29
*** iBob has left #maemo00:29
ds3Wow... disabling 3G makes a major difference in battery life00:29
DocScrutinizer*stop trolling*00:29
ma3mobut it has stupid things inside00:29
Shapeshifterma3mo: and it said "java" and "irda ftp betweent devices" (whatever that exactly is supposed to be)?00:29
Myrttithere's plenty of people ready to buy it off your hands if you're not satisfied with it00:29
*** bleeter has quit IRC00:29

ma3mookkk i stop to troll... can u send me a valid link for java???00:30
*** N900evil_ is now known as SpeedEvil00:30
ds3anyone remember some of the old bandwidth on demand technologies used with ISDN?00:30
Myrttima3mo: so when are you going to stop trolling exactly?00:30
ma3monow00:31
Shapeshifterma3mo: java.sun.com?00:31
Myrtticoz I didn't see you stop00:31
ShadowJKds3, 3g is bad for IM and such :)00:31
ma3movalid java app for fremantle i mean00:31
DocScrutinizerignore or kick? elections are open00:31
ShadowJKThere are actually some threads on the forums where people have installed java..00:31
ds3ShadowJK: right...00:31
*** etrunko has quit IRC00:31
ShadowJKds3, it's all about the wake ups :)00:31
MyrttiDocScrutinizer: aw, but  he's so much fun00:32
ds3back then, there was ISDN routers that would use the D channesl to main a min. presence then when bandwidth demand goes up, it would add B channels00:32
DocScrutinizerk00:32
ds3why can't we default to 2.5G/2.0G and switch to 3G as bandwidth demand increases automatically?00:32
ma3monot with microemulator. if i m here its couse i yet read all bout that. i hate microemu is just a demo00:32
ShadowJKds3, I saw some script announced on t.m.o. that promised automatic switch between 2g and 3g :)00:32
ds3oooh00:33
* Arif_ sneezes00:33
ds32.5G actually makes the device usable (from a battery life standpoint)00:33
ml-mobiledoesn't flipping between 2.XG and 3.XG kill connections?00:33
Arif_2.5G is too slow ={00:33
*** guysoft42 has joined #maemo00:34
DocScrutinizerds3: probably mainly because there's no crystal ball to tell future bandwidth demand00:34
ma3mosome help???00:34
Shapeshiftermy provider doesn't even do 2.5G :(00:34
Shapeshifteronly 2,3 and 3.500:34
ds3DocScrutinizer: that's the same issue with the ISDN stuff and it mostly worked00:34
* ml-mobile is on 2.5G all the time, damned AT&T00:34
Arif_get TMobile!00:34
ds3depends on what you are used to... the N800 + tetered 2.5G phone was find for my use so...00:35
ShadowJKI don't notice any difference in browsing speed between edge and 3g00:35
DocScrutinizerds3: ISDN connection establishing ois 10 times as fast as a band switch for cellular00:35
*** ma3mo has quit IRC00:35
DocScrutinizermaybe 100 times as fast00:35
Myrttiwohey00:35
ds3DocScrutinizer: oh..DOH00:35
*** user_ has joined #maemo00:36
*** bleeter has joined #maemo00:36
*** user_ has quit IRC00:36
DocScrutinizerI mean, while you're at GPRS you don't keep a list of valid UMTS basestations even00:37
DocScrutinizerther's no defined roaming between GSM and UMTS afaik00:38
ds3Oh... somehow I thought they were the same stations...akin to how EDGE and GPRS is00:38
*** crashanddie_ has joined #maemo00:38
*** crashanddie_ has quit IRC00:38
*** crashanddie_ has joined #maemo00:38
ShadowJKI think in dual mode it keeps track of both 2g and 3g stations though?00:39
DocScrutinizernah 3G is an entirely new BTS technology, distinct from GSM00:39
crashanddie_hey guys, does MfE now actually work with GMail?00:39
DocScrutinizerShadowJK: I'm not sure but I'd guess no00:39
ds3so based on what you are saying... if I am on a voice call in a 3G area and I travel into a 2.5G area, the call drops?00:39
crashanddie_that's how blackberries behave00:40
ShadowJKDocScrutinizer, I'd guess yes, because roaming between the two isn't up to the handset itself, and when you move from 3g area to 2g-only area your calls and data packets follow you..00:40
*** rdorsch has quit IRC00:40
ds3oh my00:40
DocScrutinizerat least there's no such thing like a cell handover from 2G to 3G00:40
ShadowJKAlthough when 3g was newly introduced here, most handsets acted broken when going from 3g to 2g or vice versa...00:41
ds3so 3G is more like a bolting in a second V8 to get a Yugo to go faster w/removing the original Yugo engine?00:41
crashanddie_Vodafone told us that we shouldn't use 3G all the time (If you have 4x4 on your SUV, you don't have it activated the whole time?)00:41
ShadowJKNokia blamed the operator, operator blamed nokia, nokia's left hand blamed nokia's right hand (which then said FU i want a divorce, and became nokia siemens networks)...00:41
DocScrutinizerShadowJK: sounds about right00:42
DocScrutinizerthere's no handover criterion in 2G for roaming to 3G. figure00:42
ShadowJKBut I've definitely maintained IP connectivity driving from 3g to 2g to 3g to 2g to 3g...00:42
ShadowJKAnd dozens of times my E70 has borked on that00:43
ShadowJKI can't remember my E75 doing that, and I've only had N900 since December so it's a bit early to tell :)00:43
*** Dialekt has quit IRC00:43
DocScrutinizerwell it doesn't work here00:44
ds3makes me wonder more and more on how well the 900 would work in really rural areas00:44
*** aloisiojr has quit IRC00:44
ShadowJKI think I'm in "really rural" area :-)00:44
*** rkirti has quit IRC00:44
DocScrutinizerds3: better than in urban areas, as in rural ones there's no 3G at all00:44
ShadowJKthe 3g is more sensitive than on E75 atleast00:44
ds3how does it acquire a signal? or does it just happying bounce around depending on how you hold your phone?00:45
ShadowJKI get 3g signal at 10 kilometres distance from base station :-)00:45
ShadowJKds3, dont hold hand near right side, that's where antenna is00:45
ShadowJKor "bottom" in portrait mode00:45
DocScrutinizeractually bottom right00:45
DocScrutinizeryeah00:45
ShadowJKif I keep hand there the N900 instantly loses 3g and switches to the 2g station instead (which is at 400 metres distance instead of 10km for 3g)00:45
DocScrutinizersame here00:46
DocScrutinizerthough both 2G and 3G are max 500m away00:46
ds3ShadowJK: and what happens when you keep shifting your hands to cover and on cover that area?00:47
ShadowJKuncover?00:47
*** lmoura has quit IRC00:47
ds3like if you move your hands over and away from that area00:47
ShadowJKWell the signal meter goes up and down, and at some point N900 is like "fuck this I'm going back to the stable strong 2g"00:47
DocScrutinizerwell here the jump to 2G means connectivity loss00:47
DocScrutinizerhere==my-provider00:48
ds3but let's say you are doing a long TCP transfer..does it get killed or you get into TCP retry hell?00:48
ShadowJKon my provider it's seamless00:48
ShadowJKds3, there's a few seconds where no data is moved, then data starts flowing again00:48
ShadowJKobviously that's just with my operator, DocScrutinizer has different experience with his operator00:48
DocScrutinizerthat's a setup issue with carrier's network00:49
*** benh has quit IRC00:49
ShadowJKMy operator is pretty famous for disconnecting connections randomly...00:49
ShadowJKMy other operator has very solid performance in this regard.. I can stay connected for months nonstop00:50
DocScrutinizersee, afaik there's no clear spec how to switch 2G/3G. So carriers take assumptions. Modem builders take assumptions00:50
*** n900Marco has quit IRC00:50

SpeedEvilDocScrutinizer, open-source modem fw! :)00:54
DocScrutinizerit's almost like in the early day of O2 (viag intercom), back when they used T-Mobile (telekom) for gap fillin. You had to relogin with a different PIN whenever you moved from one coverage area to the other00:55
ShadowJKwtf :-)00:56
DocScrutinizeryeah!!00:56
ShadowJKMy operator used to be a full virtual operator... on the website you could click a button to pick which network to use :-)00:56
ShadowJKit required powercycle of phone..00:56
DocScrutinizerhehe. so same shit00:56
ShadowJKIt was mostly an academical excercise anyway. The two biggest operators have nearly identical geographical coverage00:57
* noobmonk3y prods frals00:58
ShadowJKThough one of them has slightly more solar/wind powered byous out in the sea and thus greater coverage offshore00:58

luke-jrthat makes sense I suppose01:56

corecode_what?01:57
corecode_are they all runnable?01:57

luke-jrmultiprocessor systems are a slightly different scenario01:57
corecode_everythign is multiprocessor01:57
luke-jrcorecode_: they're all runnable at some point01:57
corecode_either already or in 2 years01:57
luke-jrcorecode_: I don't have a single multicore system01:57
corecode_that sucks01:58
corecode_i guess01:58
javispedrocorecode_: same reason you mentioned. on single processor it's faster because it's just less overhead and there's not an extra processor to schedule threads to at all, so using entirely userspace threading works.01:58
luke-jrruns fine, except for RAM shortages01:58
corecode_javispedro: indeed01:58
*** alecrim has quit IRC01:58
javispedrocorecode_: with 10000 threads and 2 processors I can see the overhead being greater than 50%01:58

*** SpeedEvil1 has quit IRC01:58

ptlalso, there are two apps that do the same as alarmed, fcron and some other whose nome I forgot02:52
ptlfirestorm: now THAT's something that would be difficult to handle. mail servers do not work well with dynamic IPs, also for the cellphone network, usually the IP's are under NAT02:54
corecode_so what if i'd simply like to run a daemon on boot?  init.d or something else?02:54
ptlcorecode_: event.d (upstart)02:54
corecode_firestorm: to receive or to send?02:54
ptl/etc/event.d02:54
firestormi know pti, just thought someone would given it ago lol02:54
firestormboth :p02:54
ptlthe same as ubuntu, but ubuntu used /etc/init directory instead of /etc/event.d02:54
corecode_i see i see02:55
ptlcorecode_: there is the /etc/init.d directory but if you put the scripts there it doesn't work, i.e. they are not started automatically (/etc/rc2.d or whatever)02:55
ptlcorecode_: there is some package with sysv-something, I didn't test it, maybe it enables sysv compatibility mode for upstart.02:56
ptlhmmm02:57
ptlno, it's sysvinit-utils and it's nothing to do with sysv init.02:57
ptlbtw03:00
ptlDocScrutinizer: I installed alarmed on my N900, but when I go to it, it shows only the text, and the whole background (with probably with the boxes for entering data) in black.03:00

ShapeshifterMh. Could someone help me with fixing a bug in my app? It's the frontend to alarmd. Some guy posted an excellent problem report here: http://talk.maemo.org/showthread.php?p=582996#post582996 Especially the lower part about syncevolution. The problem is: When someone wants to create a custom command for scheduling, it seems like I cannot just give it to libalarm in direct fashion, e.g.: 'action.command = echo "foo" >> /tmp/foo'. i ...11:18
Shapeshifter... tried this and it doesn't work, probably (my guess), because of the '>>'. So I thought, I'd wrap stuff in /bin/ash -c '<here>', but this seems to work randomly for people, and randomly not. :| For example that dude in the post: If he puts his syncevolution command inside my GUI, it comes out like this in alarmd_queue.ini: "action0.exec_command: /bin/ash -c '/opt/syncevolution/sync.py --quiet goosync'" and it does NOT work. ...11:18
Shapeshifter... However, if he runs exactly this from the command line, it works.11:19
ShapeshifterI just don't get what alarmd expects the exec_command parameter to be. For *some* commands, it works just putting them there, for *me*, they work if put int /bin/ash -c '', for *some* it works if that is changed to /bin/ash without the "-c", and for some commands, it works without any prefix -.-11:19

Kurppa_Not charging means the USB host you have plugged it into, cannot provide enough current to charge the phone.18:39
*** rsalveti_ has joined #maemo18:40

*** ddweerasiri has joined #maemo18:40
*** rsalveti has quit IRC18:40
Kurppa_500mA if it is a supported device.18:40
Kurppa_This means, that if you plug it into a modem for example, and the modem does support reading the device in mass storage mode, you will get 500mA if you have the phone in mass storage mode.18:40
MohammadAGBTW the not charging happened to me once and it was a sw bug, a reboot fixed it18:41
Kurppa_If the phone is in PC suite mode, you will get 100mA because the phone is not recognised by the modem.18:41

MohammadAGnoobmonk3y, ping18:43

*** unixSnob has joined #maemo18:44
DocScrutinizerKurppa_: the 'supported device" bit is mostly a OTG issue18:44
Kurppa_The phone also remembers which mode you had it last in. If you had it on PC suite mode and now you only select "charging only", it will still be advertised to the PC in "pc suite" mode and you will get 100mA.18:44
Kurppa_So if it does not charge correctly, plug it into PC, select "mass storage" mode, and then it will charge correctly.18:44

dan2003El_Angelo: uhm - i donno, was a generic one from hong-kong on ebay. I'll pop to car and loko if u want but i doubt itll have anythhing on it to identify it by18:50
Kurppa_It's capable of 1200mA, but I think the phone only charges at 900mA if I remember correctly. Good point though, mine was the same, 1200mA.18:51

The specification calls for computers to be compatible with a pre-boot protocol that can be used to update the system or perform other management options. Also, the computer must be compatible with network/desktop management applications..  Works ...22:32
