IRC log of #maemo for Sunday, 2010-09-19

dnearyJaffa, Ping?00:00
MNZdneary, I've done 'rm -rf /usr' instead of 'rm -rf usr' before00:00
MNZ^C is never fast enough00:00
dnearyMNZ, That's no big deal, as long as you're not root at the time00:01
MNZof course a bunch of shell scripting later I had everything back to normal00:01
MNZwas root00:01
xqooh by the way, can you connect to the N900 with USB and use a shell?00:01
dnearyxqo, use a shell to do what?00:01
dnearyLike in demolition man?00:02
dnearyBut you'd need 300:02
xqoI can plug my Neo Freerunner into my desktop computer and control it with a proper keyboard. can i do that with the n900?00:02
pexinox-, what do you need for that?00:02
nox-yes if you install sshd00:02
dnearyxqo, Ah, you mean can you get a shell on the tablet, from your desktop?00:03
nox-might want to use ssh keys tho...00:03
voltsso my n800 has entered an endless reboot loop and reflashing with the latest diablo image didn't help...  should i try --set-rd-flags=no-lifeguard-reset ?00:03
pexinox-, i mean can you access the mounted part00:03
voltsi'm looking at this very old page here:
xqoyes, dneary00:04
johnxvolts, couldn't hurt00:04
johnxare you sure the reflash worked though? also, when did it start rebooting?00:04
dnearyxqo, Then yes00:05
lcukvolts, if you think thats old:00:05
johnxxqo, it's more convenient to just ssh in over wifi though00:05
nox-pexi, via scp?  that goes via usb (or wifi) networking not via usb mass storage (which umounts first)00:05
xqojohnx, why?00:05
lcuki found a source code offer for a function I like, given in reference to an article written in 1986!00:05
voltsjohnx: it started the reboot loop a few weeks ago, i'm not sure why00:05
voltsi can still charge the n800 at least00:05
lcuki am pondering contacting the university and seeing whether that offer stands00:05
johnxxqo, wifi means no wires :P00:06
voltsso should i do "sudo flasher-3.5 -F <firmware-image> --set-rd-flags=no-lifeguard-reset -f -R"?00:06
pexinox-, yeah, did google n900 usb networking00:06
lcukjohnx, does code retain use after 26 years?00:06
voltsor are "-f -R" not needed?00:06
johnxlcuk, you're using UNIX, aren't you?00:06
*** kthomas_vh has quit IRC00:06
xqoi dont have wifi here, i could get it, but i dont mind wires. do you get the cable you need with the phone?00:06
johnxvolts, no need to include the image00:06
johnxit's just setting a flag00:07
lcukjohnx, no, its for a graphical bitmap rotation function00:07
johnxxqo, yeah, is the same one used for syncing ;)00:07
lcukits advertisting uber optimising00:07
lcukas they had to do00:07
johnxlcuk, why not? are bits different nowadays? are angles of rotation different?00:07
lcukand would be perfect for the task I need00:07
lcukjohnx, my point00:07
lcukso I think I will contact the uni and have a see00:08
voltsjohnx: ah thanks, then i should just do "sudo flasher-3.5 --set-rd-flags=no-lifeguard-reset"?00:08
johnxI mean, algorithmically we've come a long way since then, so changes are good it's not the most optimal00:08
nox-xqo, thats also what i thought doing at first, but then i just got an usb wifi dongle that does ap mode and plugged that into a freebsd box :)00:08
johnxvolts, yeah. you might need to turn on rd mode though00:08
lcukjohnx, i believe the same or similar implementation exists in the middle of the doom engine00:08
johnxI don't remember if that happens implicitly or if it's separate00:09
lcuki just like the purity of thinking this is a simple single function :)00:09
voltsjohnx: ah, how would i do that?00:09
johnxlcuk, well, that's 15+ years old too00:09
johnxvolts, flasher --help00:09
johnxcan't think of it right now00:09

DocScrutinizerlcuk: (you also might know who else) sorry?00:10
lcukjohnx, its the same logic as I was thinking to code it myself, its just the number of variables and complexity of the operation keeps blocking00:10
xqodo you use Maemo or Meego on the N900? because its compatible with Meego right?00:10
voltsjohnx: ah i see, i think it's probably  --enable-rd-mode00:10
lcuki started and failed the other night and braindumped the equation in pseudocode00:10
lcukthen found the article which described it in same manner00:10
crashanddiedoes anybody know why sjgadsby pinged me on twitter about some audiopulse LGPL violation?00:11
*** ahynes1 has quit IRC00:11
johnxxqo, there will be a meego port to N900. it's underway00:13
luke-jrxqo: MeeGo doesn't *really* exist yet00:13
johnxbut maemo software won't magically work in meego00:13
luke-jrxqo: officially, it's not supported. but Nokia does pay people to work on it.00:13
*** cjdavis1 has quit IRC00:14
xqothen.. the n900 wont reeally be superupdated in the near future even though the n9 is coming?00:14
kerioxqo: there will be meego, if that's what you're asking00:14
johnxxqo, not officially, no00:14
*** mrmoku is now known as mrmoku|away00:15
MNZI'm pretty sure the N900 will be one of the first (if not THE first) device to run meego00:15
johnxalso, given historical evidence, it's likely that a lot of developers will jump to the N9 and start making meego software as soon as it's available00:15
kerioMNZ: i thought it ran meego already00:16
johnxMNZ, well, technically it *is* the first I think00:16
*** sandst1|away is now known as sandst100:16
johnxbut it will never run an official commercially supported version of meego, IIUC00:16
*** falso has quit IRC00:16
MNZwell I don't really care. What I really care about right now is hwo to snoop on dbus messages00:17
DocScrutinizerMNZ: check mdbus00:17
DocScrutinizeror use dbus-monitor00:17
xqowhat is G2?00:17
xqosomeone said the G2 is N900 and Desire combined00:17
johnxit's an HTC Desire Z, runs android00:17
johnxno relation to the N900 in terms of hardware or software00:18
*** sandst1 is now known as sandst1|away00:18
johnxcloses hardware to the N900 is the Verizon Droid and the iPhone 3GS00:18
keriothe *verizon* droid?00:18
johnxmotorola Milestone, I think?00:18
johnxkerio, it's a carrier re-branded phone,00:19
xqo by the way, if you're interested.00:19
keriothe motorola droid, isn't it00:19
wmaronedroid is being used by verizon00:19
keriothe droid is a closed piece of crap00:19
wmaronethey all are00:19
wmaroneall motorola phones are00:20
*** dvoid_ has quit IRC00:20
johnxkerio, but verizon calls it the droid, motorola calls it the milestone, IIRC00:20
kerioyeah but the droid actually prevents you from running custom kernels00:20
wmaronethe -droid- doesn't00:20
johnxso do most carrier branded Android handsets, IIRC00:20
wmaronethe milestone does00:20
kerioat a hardware level00:20
pexiIt's very easy to copy a mobile phone . it takes about 8 hours to take apart a phone and laser scan the whole thing. It will take another 2 to 3 weeks and mimic and build any phone out there. The bar for delivering reasonable hardware has really come down.00:21
johnxpexi, yeah, a little questionable00:21
*** dmb has joined #maemo00:22
pexiand what about the patents and torpedos00:23
pexii donno00:23
*** 18VABI4FY has quit IRC00:23
jacekowskikerio: it's not on hardware level as far as i know00:23
jacekowskikerio: it's on cpu rom firmware level00:24
*** dmb has quit IRC00:24
keriojacekowski: it doesn't make it any less bad00:24
wmaronethe kernel lock is enforced by ARM's TrustZone00:24
wmaronewhich checks the bootloader on startup00:24
voltsoh wow, it works now00:24
jacekowskiwmarone: nope00:25
jacekowskiwmarone: trustzone has nothing to do with it00:25
jacekowskiwmarone: it's m-shield00:25
Corsacthat'll be the case for harmattan and meego too, afawk00:25
voltsoddly it booted after disabling RD mode00:25
volts still works :)00:25
*** rd has quit IRC00:26
jacekowskiwmarone: it's the thing that verifies bootloader00:26
voltsbut it only got stuck on a white screen while in RD mode00:26
jacekowskiwmarone: and anything else you want it to verify00:26
jacekowskiwmarone: and it's using trustzone to make it "safe"00:26
jacekowskiwmarone: so you can't tamper easily with m-shield00:27
jacekowskiwmarone: because all it is is just bootloader hardcoded into rom that's doing everything00:27
*** dneary has quit IRC00:27
*** t_s_o has joined #maemo00:28
*** igagis has quit IRC00:31
DocScrutinizerjacekowski: and if anybody is going to make me flash a m-shield enabled NOLO to my phone, that requires a signed kernel and possibly the signing key isn't public (as otherwise it's worthless anyway), believe me I'll find him wherever he hides in this universe, and feed him this crap00:32
luke-jrDocScrutinizer: you already have a m-shield enabled NOLO00:33
DocScrutinizerbut not one that requires a signature on kernel00:33
jacekowskiwell, nolo is m-shield enabled00:35
jacekowskibut it's not configured to enforce anything except signed bootloader00:35
jacekowskiwhich is quite pointless00:35
*** volts has quit IRC00:35
jacekowskibecause you can just chainload another bootloader using nolo00:35
jacekowskiit can even be nolo again00:36
DocScrutinizerI thought NOLO *is* the botloader00:36
DocScrutinizerbootloader even00:36
jacekowskiyeah, but nolo can only load images in specific format00:36
jacekowskiand has some limitations00:36
DocScrutinizeryeah we know it will load any correctly formated binary, no matter if a kernel or uBoot or whatever00:37
*** MohammadAG has joined #maemo00:37
noobmonk3yanyone know why /sys/devices/platform/omap34xx_temp/temp1_input reads -40 as a temperature at times?00:39
DocScrutinizerjacekowski: how's key management handled? Will TI sign Nokia's NOLO? or do they ship 3430 with Nokia's pubkey in ROM? or are they deploying one standard secret key to all OEMs?00:40
noobmonk3yhe Mo00:40
jacekowskifrom limited info i was able to find00:40
jacekowskiyou need some special toolkit00:40
jacekowskito flash key into cpu00:40
DocScrutinizeroh, so Nokia themselves flash their oubkey to 3430 ROM00:41
jacekowskiand that's probably why bootloader is using all that trustzone stuff00:42
jacekowskiso you can't do anything with key from outside bootloader00:42
DocScrutinizerso you could disable (or not enable) m-shield on a fresh CPU?00:42
jacekowskii don't have official docs00:42
jacekowskii just have limited info i found on many websites00:42
jacekowskibut i belive so00:43
jacekowskithat's why i was thinking about wiping it using x-rays00:43
DocScrutinizerlemme rephrase: when I replace OMAP3430 SOC with a spare from digikey, will it still load NOLO?00:43
*** zommi has quit IRC00:43
MohammadAG<noobmonk3y> anyone know why /sys/devices/platform/omap34xx_temp/temp1_input reads -40 as a temperature at times? <-- isn't this borked by design?00:43
MohammadAGafaik SpeedEvil knows about it00:43
jacekowskiDocScrutinizer: no00:44
jacekowskiDocScrutinizer: nolo uses HS stuff from cpu00:44
luke-jrDocScrutinizer: no00:44
luke-jrDocScrutinizer: for example, see the qemu problem00:44
jacekowskiDocScrutinizer: and you can't get HS version unless you are nokia or any other big vendor00:44
luke-jrDocScrutinizer: qemu can't run N900 NOLO00:44
jacekowskinolo that qemu is running isn't that different from n900 nolo00:45
DocScrutinizerwhat's HS?00:45

jacekowskiyeah, mine is failing as well00:47
jacekowskii'm not bothered00:47
noobmonk3yjace -> mine was fine 10 mins ago, not now00:47
noobmonk3yso thinking it cant test 4 unless it's in a certain position, etc00:48
noobmonk3yie, something needs to be happening00:48
MohammadAGNokia-N900:~# cat /sys/class/i2c-adapter/i2c-2/2-0032/selftest00:48
noobmonk3ybut would be useful to know what 4 is, so i can try to explain led 4 fail00:48
noobmonk3yffs! LED 1 FAIL now!!!00:48
luke-jrI want to get my N900 to share GPS via Bluetooth00:48

DocScrutinizernoobmonk3y: lp5523 kernel driver is doing the selftests, deciding if a particular LED is ok by A/D'ing the voltage over LED. It mustn't be too high or too low00:50
noobmonk3ythe only google on "cat /sys/class/i2c-adapter/i2c-2/2-0032/selftest" brings up yours and Jace's convo on irc logs, not the greatest documented thing on earth :P00:50

noobmonk3ythanks Doc!00:51
noobmonk3yso, if the device is oc's on charge etc... that could feck it00:51

*** felipec has quit IRC01:00
MohammadAG(from the sensor next to the battery)01:00
noobmonk3yhehe, tis ok, thought that was the case, as OMAP deprecated it after that model :P - according to their website, must have just been flakey in that 101:00
MohammadAGor from the battery itself, not sure01:00
noobmonk3yMohammadAG, the battery one is flakey too01:00
MohammadAGbut it's in kernel-power, if you can get the source it can be compiled for omap101:00
MohammadAG/sys/devices/platform/omap34xx_temp/temp1_input <-- this is the battery one :P01:01
noobmonk3yMo, that is what i am reading01:01
*** osaka has joined #maemo01:02
MohammadAGI know, but there's a kernel module which reports the correct temp01:02

*** Funnyface2 has quit IRC01:03
osakahello, came to ask if anyone else is having an issue with n900 not alerting on incoming SMS all the time? no vibration or sound or on-screen message, but if you open the conversation it's there01:03
osakai've noticed it only with one contact, too :/01:03
noobmonk3yosaka, specific texts? i ask, as it is possible to send a non-alert text01:03
noobmonk3y(Back in the day i had a tool to do that was quite funny) - but these days, companies can do it, even the vodafone text centre, (Text via outlook) allows you to send non-alert texts)01:04
osakasometimes it does alert from the contact's sms's but not always, and it's a girl i doubt who knows how to send a non-alert text01:04
noobmonk3yosaka, any chance she is sending it from a pc or website?01:04
osakanah, def her phone01:04
noobmonk3yjust thinking a checkbox could be out of place?01:04
noobmonk3yin that case, no idea :|01:04

ShadowJKThe sensor right next to the battery is accessed through twl4030 madc. I don't know any non-nokia software that does this.01:09
ShadowJKIt probably accesses the battery fuel gauge chip's internal temperature sensor instead01:09
ShadowJKI thought omap34xx_temp/temp1_input was the SOC temperature...01:10
*** ALoGeNo has joined #maemo01:10
SpeedEvilthe /sys/class/power/*/temp* is the battery monitor chip temp01:10
ShadowJKThere's no temperature sensor inside the battery... Well, there's one in the mugen battery, but it's not supposed ot be there, so it creates all sorts of interesting issues for normal maemo system :)01:10
DocScrutinizerShadowJK: yep, me too01:10
*** Funnyface has joined #maemo01:10
*** felipec has joined #maemo01:11

wmaronebut then it wouldn't be pidgin05:00
SpeedEvilMy major objection is with either pidgin, or some unnamed contributor to the linux 2.4 kernel.05:02
SpeedEvilIn 2.4 times, you could do sockdown() on a network descriptor in /proc/nnn/fd/05:02
SpeedEvilEven if it was not your own.05:02
SpeedEvilThis let you tear down connections without waiting for the stack to timeout, f you knew rthe connection had gone away.05:03
SpeedEvilBut with pidgin - you have to disable and then reenable the account to do that.05:03
SpeedEvilIn practice, I kill and restart it.05:03

jaemHow do I kill matchbox on Diablo and keep it dead?  It keeps respawning?10:40
jaemThat last sentence wasn't a question. :S10:40
johnxreplace it with something a script named matchbox that starts and just sleeps forever?10:41
infobotjohnx meant: replace it with  a script named matchbox that starts and just sleeps forever?10:41
jaemjohnx: Sure, but I'm wondering what makes it respawn in the first place.  matchbox-remote -exit does not work.10:42
MNZjaem, probably init scripts. not sure about Diablo, but if it uses upstart then probably 'stop matchbox'10:42
johnxprobably watched by the watchdog?10:42
jaemMNZ: It might be init scripts, but it doesn't use upstart, IIRC10:42

n900_userpsycho_oreos: thanks for checking up on that. i just wonder why all those people then say that they can successfully use those commands in order to resize their icons/shortcuts12:25
johnxjpinx, yup. what you're tring to do isn't actually that simple. I would draw out a network diagram for yourself including maemo and the debian chroot as separate machines, then try and follow a howto and substitute in the right things for your setup12:25
psycho_oreosthink of it as like registry entries under windows12:25

psycho_oreosn900_user, its a good idea to read the thread from the beginning, there's a script which would automate getting the stuff that is maybe required for it to work including matan's modified hildon-home12:26

stef_204I meant that one ^^13:00
DocScrutinizerjohnx: but actually script writers of initscripts should even better have known about the *differences* between messybox and a decent shell plus coreutils, to avoid breaking init when messybox is replaced by a more sane setup13:00
stef_204Distribution: freemantle13:00
stef_204Components: free13:00
johnxDocScrutinizer, which is often *why* I need to know busybox, so I can avoid breaking maemo or on "better" shells13:01
johnxstef_204, misspelled fremantle ;)13:01
stef_204Distrib perhaps is wrong?  I see there is also freemantle 1.2 and 1.313:01
stef_204johnx: yikes ;)13:01
johnxalso, am I like the last one who noticed a 1.3 in the extras repo? does that mean anything or ... ?13:02
DocScrutinizerjohnx: I'm afraid the really nasty busyboxisms aren't even mentioned in busybox manpages - if there even is such a thing13:02
stef_204lemme correct that.  what's teh deal with using fremantle instead of fremantle-1.2 or fremantle-1.3 ?13:02
johnxDocScrutinizer, there is. on their website. haven't found a discrepancy yet, but obviously YMMV13:02
DocScrutinizerjohnx: nope, for now that 1.3 is just a link to prepare for a bright future :-)13:03
johnxstef_204, if I had to guess, I'd bet that fremantle just pointed to whatever the 'current' release was13:03

psycho_oreosthe point is that you won't need to reboot/dual boot if you have windows under virtualised environment, and the performance is quite minimal unless you're doing multitasking under both OS :p13:15

stef_204psycho_oreos: that's what I had done before except wasn't a good experience because, since I had no space available on my HDD for the VM, I stuck it into a network drive and tried to run the converted install from there.  To say it was slow is the understatement of the year13:19
MohammadAG51Jaffa, just a bit, doing some physics hw13:20
DocScrutinizerjacekowski: given NOLO is software running on the phone, it seems 3.0 is enough to start up the hw13:20
jacekowskiwell, but charging is stopped13:20
DocScrutinizerwho's doing that??13:21
DocScrutinizerhere nobody stopped charging13:21
jacekowskibme stops charging on startup13:21
psycho_oreosstef_204, which comes back to the point of actually buying portable hard disks.. you'll only need it to migrate windows into virtualised environment, once you're satisfied, you can get rid of the proper windows install and run windows from virtualisation.. either that or upgrade your network setup, it sounds like you are still using something like 100Mbit connection :)13:21

infobotQuestions in the channel should be specific, informative, complete, concise, and on-topic.  Don't ask if you can ask a question first.  Don't ask if a person is there; just ask what you intended to ask them.  Better questions more frequently yield better answers.  We are all here voluntarily or against our will.14:07
koffeekanos2007he has older versions of libsoup, libc6 etc.  is it possible to update these easily?  or is there another calendar app?14:08

sandstormis there any good compilation of N900 tweaks in terms of performance and battery life on a single thread or site? thanks for help.15:22
sandstorman upto date if available.15:23
dnearysandstorm, There's a wiki page15:23
dnearyBut honestly the advice there isn't great15:23
*** ToJa92 has joined #maemo15:23
dnearyBut I'm not really able to improve on it15:24
SpeedEvilIt's not user friendly though.15:24
SpeedEvilI need to polish it and get it nice, but life is getting in the way15:24
MohammadAGQt Creator is a bit hard to use15:24
SpeedEvilDon't use screen at max brightness unless you can avoid it. Don't use anything that polls over 3G, don't use skype ever.15:25
jpinxSpeedEvil: I'll drink to that - skype EATS battery and bandwidth15:25
sandstormI didnt even enabled 3g from my gsm provider15:26
sandstormI knew it drains battery much15:26
kerionah, any kind of active data connection does that15:26
sandstormits automatically on 2.5g, do you suggest me to enforce it to 2g ?15:26
sandstormif there is no active data flow, 3g is harmless ?15:27
sandstorminstead of telecomunnications data packets of course.15:27
kerioan active, idle 3g connection is hardly measurable15:27
sandstormlets assume I talk to my friend 10 minutes, will there be difference in battery drainage between 2g and 3g ?15:28
jpinxsandstorm: not sure about "idle" in 3g, but these connections are always pinging and generally keeping themselves alive, so there will always be usage15:28
sandstormthat's what I was thinking as well15:28
sandstormso that if I dont need 3g why to enable it.15:28
sandstormI only use internet via wifi15:29
sandstormbut what about 2.5g and 2g15:29
jpinxsandstorm: all the connections use a lot of power - wifi too15:29
famicomhere's something i find interesting15:29
keriojpinx: nah, idle connection (with no data) are really low on battery usage15:29
sandstormI wonder if I should enforce 2g with the network switcher application15:29
sandstormI know but I cant avoid wifi at some point15:30
sandstormI dont use it constantly though15:30
famicomon my touch pro 2 running windows mobile 6.5, i could use mobile internet and mobile IM all day long and the battery would be fine15:30
famicomwith the n900 it's drained before i even get back from whatever it is i'm doing outside15:30
* jpinx wonders why someone would want a mobile to be *alwys* online15:30

Corsacor just have a jabber connection always on15:31
*** bilboed has joined #maemo15:31
famicomthat too15:31
sandstormno ideas on 2.5g and 2g ?15:31
famicomjpinx is there a way to kill off connections15:32
sandstormother question is, if I disable some of the 4 desktops, would it make a significant sense in terms of battery?15:32
famicomi mean, even if i adjust my own usage behavior, it would be nice if i can get apps acting rude eating power to play nice15:32
jpinxfamicom: sure15:33
*** FireFly|n900 has joined #maemo15:33
jpinxsandstorm: use the switch to put the screen off, don't wait for the timeout15:33
sandstormI didnt mean that15:33
jpinxturn the volume down15:34
sandstormas default we get 4 desktops on hildon15:34
sandstormI only use 3 or 2 of them15:34
jpinxwe do?15:34
sandstormI do at least15:34
jpinxI have never bothered with those15:34

sandstormwhat is missing in calendar at your point of view?15:38

jpinxsandstorm: try scrolling one week at a time15:38

*** muellisoft has joined #maemo15:39
SpeedEvilsandstorm: what sort of battery life are you seeing?15:39
famicomJartza true, but those people should either learn to fix it, or they should provide clear instructions for those who can fix it what they should fix15:40
SpeedEvilAlso - make sure your AP is power-saving proprly if using wifi15:40
* jpinx gets a day with "medium" usage15:40
SpeedEvilfamicom: Providing clear instructions takes time.15:40
sandstormSpeedEvil: not a too bad one, but if I have the chance, I will try to improve it and the performance. the visuals are not the top priority for me. performance and battery life are. I got like 2 days average of battery life.15:40
SpeedEvilfamicom: And can be disheartening if you do it several times and nothing happens15:40
famicomif it doesn't work, it means you need to try something different, and try again15:41
Jartzafamicom: I agree to some point. but personally I also appreciate just input from users, even in form "I just don't like it".15:41
SpeedEvil2 days is generally fairly good, unless it's idle.15:41
SpeedEvilI've gotten up to around 8 with it all-but idle.15:41

*** hannesw__ has quit IRC15:41

SpeedEvilsandstorm: No. It's an awesome bitr of nokia IP.15:41
jpinxwell - if someone owns up to writing the calendar I can provide polite and constructive critique ;)15:42
Jartzafamicom: well, in traditional world the customer should be the king :)15:42
*** muelli has quit IRC15:42
famicomnot really, only if you pay for it15:42
Jartzaof course, open source changes things, especially if the customer isn't a paying one15:43

sivangMohammadAG: or "messages" in OOP speak.16:27
lcukntpd should update time and refresh the clock16:27
MohammadAGsivang, and the .cpp files are the code itself16:27
lcukbut it doesnt16:27
sivangMohammadAG: exactly16:27
sivangMohammadAG: "the implementation"16:27
sivangMohammadAG: which should be hidden from the clients (16:27
lcukis there a point in OS where a script can run on network connect?16:27
sivangMohammadAG: "users" of the classes16:27
lcukand a way of refreshing the clock16:27
sivangMohammadAG: Python has a similar notion with zope.interface16:28
luke-jrAhoy thar lcuk16:28
lcuk\o luke-jr16:28
DocScrutinizer51lcuk: maybe clock updates after 60s?16:28
luke-jrlcuk: where be ye pirate hat?16:28
sivangMohammadAG: twisted has them as well16:28
lcukDocScrutinizer51, the first few times I ran ntpd from the console it didnt update16:28
DocScrutinizer51lcuk: that's weird. date gave correct time?16:29
sivangMohammadAG: the .h/.c/.cc stuff is sort of explained here:
sivangMohammadAG: ADTs16:29
MohammadAGand .pro files are like makefiles for Qt?16:29
lcukDocScrutinizer51, yes16:29
lcukafter ntpd -s16:29
lcukthe date is correct16:29
DocScrutinizer51lcuk: also you want to run hwclock --systohc after adjusting time16:29
lcukbut to actually get the widget to refresh16:29
lcuki still have to open time16:29
lcukand save it16:30
luke-jrnot exactly16:30
lcukno DocScrutinizer5116:30
lcuki want it to happen automatically16:30
lcukafter net connect16:30
lcukidk console foo16:30
lcukit took me 6 months to remember ntpd -s ya know16:30
DocScrutinizer51lcuk: it should probably run ntpdate in ifup script16:30
DocScrutinizer51ntpd isn't exactly tailored to fit usecase of sporadic network connectivity16:31
*** C-S-B has joined #maemo16:32
lcukthen store a random flag with now date16:32
luke-jrDocScrutinizer51: sure it is16:32
lcukand if we have gone back in time to 200916:32
lcukrun it16:32
DocScrutinizer51the daemon doesn't cope well with missing connection16:32
luke-jrDocScrutinizer51: in fact, ntpd *blocks* ntpd16:32
lcuki dont really care about 5 seconds off16:32
lcukbut it showing 2009 is a bummer16:32
luke-jrblocks ntpdate16:33
sivangMohammadAG: sort of I think, I think they are used by qmake to create proper makefiles for make16:33
luke-jrDocScrutinizer51: then something is wrong16:33
MohammadAGis this void MainWindow::createMenus() like def createMenus() in python?16:33
MohammadAGcreateMenus(self) that is16:33
luke-jreven w/o network, ntpd is supposed to calculate skew and counter it16:33
MohammadAGsivang, ah, sorta like a configure script16:33
luke-jrand on a N810 or N900, it only makes sense to have ntpd check the GPS time every so often16:33
sivangMohammadAG: similar but the C++ version is using the method in the class wihtout instantiation, while "createMenus(self)" does.16:34
sivangMohammadAG: as far as I understand </grain of salt>16:34
lcukdoc, if [ -z "`date|grep 2009`" ]16:34
DocScrutinizer51lcuk: anyway enabling automatic adjust in time settings only means it's listening to GSM time msgs16:34
lcukhence me talking about ntpd16:34
sivangMohammadAG: it is something else if you use this to declare a method16:35
sivangMohammadAG: as the syntax for declaring it is quite similar16:35
MohammadAG    helpMenu = menuBar()->addMenu(tr("&Help"));16:35
*** FireFly has quit IRC16:35
MohammadAGhelpMenu would be the object name?16:36
sivangMohammadAG: yes, if addMenu returns an instance16:36
luke-jrI thought it was _16:36
MohammadAGidk, that's the example I'm looking at16:36
lcukMohammadAG, i just found out last night16:36
sivangMohammadAG: and menuBar here is supposed produce an instance as well16:37
MohammadAGwas gonna was what tr was lol16:37
lcukadding a textbox onto liqflow lets text input direct on desktop16:37
MohammadAGmenuBar is that blue arrow thingy16:37
DocScrutinizer51lcuk: my ntpd is working just fine as my device is 'always online'. For devices with sporadic connectivity I recommend not using ntpd and instead include ntpdate call to ifup16:37
MohammadAGlcuk, nice16:37
zokiertr enables translateable strings16:37
lcukDocScrutinizer51, i dont care the semantics, i get frustrated seeing clock at 200916:37
sivangMohammadAG: ^16:37
lcukthe internal battery is dead16:37
lcukso needs fixing16:37
sivangMohammadAG: about 'tr'16:38
DocScrutinizer51lcuk: how can I help?16:38
lcukmake ntp work and refresh the clock on desktop !16:38
DocScrutinizer51sivang: ooh, THAT tr()16:38
sivangDocScrutinizer51: :)16:38
lcukeven tie it in with the system setting for automatically adjust clock if you feel you have to16:39
DocScrutinizer51yeah, I was involved in I18n of twinkle16:39

I can't see why system status clock applet wouldn't update, except if they use an alarmd or other absolute time alarm to trigger refresh, and due to systime adjusted backwards that alarm 'never' triggers17:05

*** MNZ has quit IRC21:02
Noobmonk3yits kinda odd, as i know i don't code too well, but i love the investigation part - what is odd, is really how badly documented some of the n900 parts are :| - ie, when i cat something, i'd expect a documented list of what something does either from nokia, manufacturer or supplier, in most cases that is not true (like boot_reason) for example21:03
VenemoNoobmonk3y: why do you think you don't code well?21:03

GAN900Didn't manage to get to the point where I felt like fighting with MeeGo to check for bad blocks.22:32

GAN900Friend is going to pay me for my DDP one that he's been using since I got it.22:34
w00tGAN900: well, that worked our kind of well, then22:35
alteregoI've just got a new work contract, so I might be able to buy a new gadget with the pay :)22:35
JaffaAfter extensive playing with an N8 (nearly typed R8, I wish!); I've concluded Maemo's still the best looking, most flexible and most integrated (except Ovi) phone for me at the moment.22:35
*** norayr has quit IRC22:35
GAN900Symbian just has too much baggage.22:35
GAN900I really hope the new execs at Nokia manage to push things in good directions.22:35
w00tJaffa: I must ask, is S^3 really less shit than prior symbian offerings? :)22:36
Jaffaw00t: It is less shit.22:36
w00tthat's no mean feat22:36
alteregoI was tempted into getting an N8 just for cross device development, as I'd obviously like to target new Symbian handsets too, but I think I might wait for Symbian 422:36
GAN900alturiak: sounds like a good plan.22:36
alteregoIt is less shit, but only because they've spent more than five minutes adding touch functionality.22:36
Jaffaw00t: The physical design of the hardware is orders of magntitude better looking than the N90022:36
w00tyes, the devices look sexy, at least from what i've seen on videos/etc22:37
JaffaGives me high hopes for the Harmattan device.22:37
*** _rd has joined #maemo22:37
w00t(I haven't seen one)22:37
GAN900The bit on Engadget about hardware setting software requirements is just unreal22:37
GAN900if unsurprising22:37
w00tI like the common theme that seems to run through the hardware22:37
alteregoYeah, doest look quite sexsy.22:37
GAN900Minus that goddamn capacitive screen.22:37
JaffaThe E7 is a *beast* though; hopefully the Harmattan device won't be anywhere near that big22:38
w00tam I the only person that likes big phones?22:38
alteregoI dunno, I like the E7 design, maybe 1/2 an inch smaller though22:38
w00ti'd love an E722:38
Stskeepsw00t: well, you probably have something to make up for, without a big phone in your pocket..22:38

alteregoI liked the keynote, "It's _biiiiig_"22:38

Jaffaw00t: The E7 is a *very* big phone22:38
jacekowskilooks like failing usb port have failed on my n90022:38
TriztI don't like the design of the new nokias, feels a bit "boring"22:38
jacekowskior it's just hmm, something else22:39
JaffaTrizt: I wasn't impressed by the photos until I saw them in the flesh22:39
GAN900Trizt: aye.22:39
GAN900The N97 had more much interesting styling.22:39
JaffaToo retro & boring for me.22:39
w00tshame about the hardware22:39
alteregoI felt the same about the N810, the pictures don't do it justice. When I got my N810, I thought "Wow, this is a really sexy device"22:40
* RST38h smirks at the mention of n9722:40
RST38hthat one was a disaster22:40
alteregoThough, the N900 was kind of opposite, the pictures make it look prettier than it actually is in person :)22:40
alteregoThough I do remember thinking, "Wow, this is a bit smaller than I imagined".22:40
RST38hn900 is a 5800 on steroids22:40
GAN900Way too much plastic.22:40
RST38hi.e. not pretty but practical22:40
JaffaAnd been hit by an ugly stick.22:40
TriztI wish the N900 could have been thinner, otherwise I like it22:41
JaffaWell, it wasn't that bad to start with; but looks really dated and plasticky now22:41
alteregoI just think the front could be a little nicer :)22:41
GAN900At least it feels good to hold.22:41
alteregoYeah, that it does.22:41
GAN900I dunno if I can deal with the tilted touchscreen.22:41
JaffaAnd handy in the case of needing a brick to throw through a window for a bit of burglarising.22:41
RST38hiPhone is exactly the same size but thinner. It is pain to hold.22:41
w00tJaffa: hahah22:41
RST38hDoes not feel substantial, as you would expect phone receiver to be22:42
GAN900You really have to have a case for the iPhone22:42
alteregoGAN900: why?22:42
Triztof course I wish it had a multi core cpu and compass and gyro, built in tv receiver, video....22:42
GAN900Which is what makes it genius.22:42
w00tI have sent my n900 through a window, once22:42
GAN900alterego: dunno, just looks really problematic for me.22:42
JaffaTrizt: I'd settle for a teleport; keep the rest.22:42
Jaffaw00t: Really?!22:42
w00tI fell22:42
w00tit went flying22:42
TriztJaffa; yeah, that had been the ultimate feature22:42
GAN900iPhone looks really good in specs and pictures, but you still make money on cases.22:42
alteregoGAN900: I kind of like the idea, but I'll have to use one before I can say I like it or not practically.22:42
w00tslight chip in the frame, but hardly noticable22:42
w00tno other damage22:43
RST38hGAN900: so you made piece with your iphone at last?22:43
GAN900RST38h: I want to burn it to death.22:43

alteregoYou really found the iPhone that bad>?22:43
Triztanyone managed to run maemo on an iphone?22:44
GAN900Can't stand it22:44
GAN900iOS is boring to use, the screen sucks, the touchscreen sucks, the formfactor is irritating.22:44
MohammadAG51GAN900, what's difference between a production and a preproduction device22:44
GAN900Things are always more complicated than they need to be.22:44
w00tI tried an iPhone (again) a few months ago, I was pretty underwhelmed really22:44
GAN900MohammadAG51: no N900 badge.22:44
MohammadAG51i remember you metnioned something about loaders being different22:44
alteregoI've got a couple of friends that have them, one is a mobile dev, god they're such massive fan boys, touting how great it is.22:44
GAN900MohammadAG51: Says property of Nokia on the inside.22:44
GAN900MohammadAG51: the HW ID isn't listed in the COMBINED FIASCO images.22:45
MohammadAG51GAN900, so only the loader is different?22:45
alteregoI just want to shout at them, but I refrain and just remember what I can do on my older, but far more flexible N90022:45
RST38hMMohammad: "N900" on the outside, yellow badge on the inside, boot loader not compatible with the rootfs images22:45
GAN900alterego: I had a local journalist try to tell me Apple invented multitasking when he got his iPhone 4.22:45
alteregoGAN900: hahahah22:45
RST38hMohammad: I.e. you have to flash it with specially prepared firmware22:45
MohammadAG51alterego, oh so we're similar, except I don't refrain22:45

GAN900The one thing that's really lightyears ahead of everybody else on Maemo devices is book reading.22:46

GAN900iPhone 1G's screen is ugly22:48

MohammadAGactually, hildon-desktop does WHEN catorize is installed22:57
MohammadAGapparently catorize is only 1 page of icon22:57
MohammadAGhildon-desktop thinks it reached the end, so it bounces the page, then it thinks it reached the top and bounces it again22:58
