Tuco_mariadoes underclocking to 250Mhz improve battery duration?01:15
johnxonly in very specific workloads01:16
*** Smily has quit IRC01:16
luke-jrTuco_maria: also, 250 MHz can cause problems01:16
Tuco_mariaso, should i stick with the stock clock speed of 600 Mhz?01:16
luke-jr500 is better01:17
luke-jr600 is overclocked01:17
luke-jrit won't last a year at 60001:17
luke-jrwhy not just let cpufreq/Linux handle it dynamically?01:17
johnxkeep in mind that there isn't one 'stock' clock speed. by default it scales over a range of clock speeds01:17
luke-jrI run Gentoo and my N900 uses 600 MHz less than 10% of the time01:17
sandstormwon't last a year at 600mhz? wow..01:18
johnxif it's running constantly at 600MHz 24/701:18
luke-jra large majortiy fo the time, it's idle01:18
sandstormvery interesting news for me, I'd expected more01:19
sandstormcan you run gentoo on n900 with the phone capabilities?01:19
*** sr71 has joined #maemo01:20
Tuco_mariathe motorola milestone uses the same silicon as the n900, and it runs at 600 mhz01:20
luke-jrsandstorm: depends what you call phone capaibilities01:20
luke-jrsandstorm: I have data working.01:20
luke-jrand data is all the service I have to test with01:21
luke-jrTuco_maria:  not 24/701:21
*** SpeedEvil has quit IRC01:21
sandstormphone calls, smses and other telecommunications stuff you know. are there proper applicatons on gentoo ?01:21
luke-jrsandstorm: there's KDE...01:21
luke-jrsandstorm: for voice/SMS, you'll have to ask someone else though01:21
*** florian has quit IRC01:21
luke-jrI don't have those (useless) services01:21
sandstormcan you make phone calls with KDE ?01:22
* kerio has vivid memories of running gnome and kde on a machine with 384MBs of ram01:22
sandstormand receive them01:22
sandstormand boot your SIM card? authenticate yourself? connect to the GSM provider? with gentoo ?01:22
Tuco_mariai like the hildon interface, more than kde or gnome01:23
sandstormif it is somehow possible, I, myself a gentoo user as well.01:23
sandstormon my laptop though01:24
sandstormand its my favourite distro btw.01:24
DocScrutinizerTuco_maria: stock kernel clocks all available speeds from 250 to 600, depending on rather reasonable parameter evaluation, to get the best of performance and battery savings in all common usage profiles01:24
Tuco_mariaso, it`s impossible to have better battery times?01:25
johnxnot impossible01:25
johnxyou could do some research with powertop01:25
johnxfind out how long your phone spends in each power state01:26
DocScrutinizerno, it's simple to have great battery standby times, by simply using proper designed software that doesn't run circles for nothing01:26
johnxthen try and write a better algorithm for scaling the CPU up and down depending on the software your run01:26
kerioDocScrutinizer: why do you hate pulseaudio and tracker, DocScrutinizer?01:26
DocScrutinizerjohnx: eh?01:27
johnxDocScrutinizer, elaborate01:27
*** nickaugust has left #maemo01:27
Tuco_mariai use n900 mostly to browse the web and send/receive sms, ocasiomally some voice calls01:28
DocScrutinizerjohnx: do you really think that's a appropriate task for somebody asking if downclocking CPU to 250 saves battery?01:28
johnxDocScrutinizer, I'm trying to get across how much Nokia has already optimized this. It's not like they just forgot that running the CPU at a slower speed would save battery01:28
*** crashanddie has quit IRC01:29
DocScrutinizerTuco_maria: if you have battery standby time issues, it's quite usualy caused by some rogue software, or a bug somewhere. Try to find which processes keep the CPU running, or do large amounts of internet traffic (both eating battery like mad)01:30
Tuco_mariathe only software i`ve installed are firefox, fmms, angry birds and the plastic theme01:31
Tuco_mariamaybe one of the is buggy01:31
TiagoTiago_i think i read somewhere someone complaining that Frefox stays running  after you close it01:31
DocScrutinizerTuco_maria: for some reference, to give you an idea: my battery was at 60% after 24h of online via WLAN, with IRC by xchat on 8 chan, and a script cosntantly running and displaying my real battery status every 15s01:32
Tuco_mariai would be happy with that, mine is lasting about one day01:33
DocScrutinizerTuco_maria: first ssh to the device, and run htop. See if any process (except htop itself :-D ) is constantly eating CPU time01:33
*** SpeedEvil has joined #maemo01:34
DocScrutinizerthen run powertop and make sure your cpu is mostly idle, see
sandstormI don't have powertop installed as default, what may I do for that?01:36
*** habmala has quit IRC01:36
sandstormand I don't know why it is not installed as default btw.01:37
DocScrutinizerfind it in extras-devel, or tools repo01:37
DocScrutinizerit isn't installed by default01:37
johnxit should also give you a more clear idea of how the N900 does power saving, in terms of not just 'under'-clocking, but also actually suspending the CPU and turning it back on before the next timer expires01:39
TiagoTiago_the substitution thing seems to not be working anymore01:40
Tuco_mariaso, overclocking it wouldnt decrease battery life as well right?01:40
*** SmilyOrg is now known as Smily01:40
DocScrutinizerit will. Not only battery standby time, but also CPU livetime01:41
*** Smily is now known as SmilyOrg01:41
DocScrutinizeroverclocking is a really really bad idea, if you don't know *exactly* what and why you're doing01:42
johnxTuco_maria, some people have claimed to not lose too much battery life when allowing a higher 'maximum' clock speed, but in my case I don't feel like it's worth the risk01:42
DocScrutinizeron a system devel level of understanding01:42
Tuco_mariai will leave it as it is then01:43
TiagoTiago_and even knowing enough, there is still the risk the processor you got was one with the lowest score and will fry much earlier than others01:44
johnxTuco_maria, I think that's smart :)01:44
TiagoTiago_was among the ones*01:45
*** dvoid_ has quit IRC01:45
DocScrutinizerTuco_maria: look, if TI and Nokia would have seen any benefit in allowing it, they'd have a config option in settings, like "long standby"<->"super fast execution"01:46
*** chadi has quit IRC01:46
Tuco_mariamaybe you are right...01:46
*** sr71 has left #maemo01:47
TiagoTiago_wait, we can't trust Nokia 100% on their decisions, there are many thigns people spot that Nokia didn't put enough work on01:47
johnxin terms of power saving stuff, I tend to trust Nokia01:47
DocScrutinizerI even more tend to trust TI01:48
johnxTiagoTiago_, have you read any of their white papers or watched one of their presentations on 'race to idle'?01:48
johnxreally quite cool stuff01:48
TiagoTiago_not really01:48
*** Tuco_maria has left #maemo01:49
TiagoTiago_i mean, i have not read it01:50
TiagoTiago_is it on Youtube?01:50
* johnx digs it up01:50
DocScrutinizerand in all their whitepapers about OMAP and SmartReflex, Ti nowhere mentions any need for user/manufacturer to make a tradeoff between execution speed and power consumption. It's always like "this technology allows fastest execution speeds on lowest possible power consumption", no either / or01:50
sandstormDocScrutinizer: thank you very much for info and link01:51
*** kthomas_vh has joined #maemo01:51
TiagoTiago_isn't SmartReflex turned off? I remember i once had a program for setting  max clock speed that had  a checkbox ofr SR that was unmarked, and when i marked it it made the device crashj01:51
*** vanadismobile has joined #maemo01:52
johnxTiagoTiago_, , advanced power management for omap301:52
DocScrutinizerTiagoTiago_: SmartReflex is partially turned off, due to some hw flaw which causes instabilities01:52
johnxclick the 'video' link below it01:52
*** kthomas_vh has quit IRC01:52
*** MadViking has quit IRC01:52
sandstormso enabling SmartReflex fully can cause instability?01:53
*** kthomas_vh has joined #maemo01:53
*** benh has quit IRC01:53
*** jacktheripper has quit IRC01:53
TiagoTiago_why did they let hardware with such a flaw be released as a finished product?01:53
DocScrutinizerTiagoTiago_: to be more specific, I think one particular function detail of the bunch of measures sailing under "SmartReflex" was disabled01:53
*** MadViking has joined #maemo01:53
DocScrutinizersandstorm: yes01:54
DocScrutinizerpossibly even hw damage01:54
sandstormthere's a tweak going around on the net echoing 1s to two configuration settings to enable SmartReflex, so you dont suggest that?01:54
johnxTiagoTiago_, happens all the time in the real world01:54
TiagoTiago_Who's fault is the hardware has that flaw?01:54
DocScrutinizersandstorm: no, I don't suggest that01:54
johnxdunno. could be the board Nokia designed or the chip from Ti, or the core from ARM for all I know01:55
DocScrutinizersandstorm: there's been reasons why it's been disabled01:55
TiagoTiago_the audio int hat video is horrible,, way too much echo and dist5ortion, very hard to understand anything :(01:55
johnxTiagoTiago_, I think there might be a summary of the talk somewhere01:55
*** wazd has joined #maemo01:56
sandstormin addition, there are tweaks to make swappiness value 15 or 30 other than 100(default), briefly; what do you say about this thread:
johnx then scroll down to 'power management in nokia's next maemo device'01:56
TiagoTiago_do you think that swappolube thing is safe?01:56
DocScrutinizerTiagoTiago_: there's flaws in (virtually) every hardware01:56
DocScrutinizerTiagoTiago_: if it's causing hw damages, then odds are it had been noticed way too late01:57
DocScrutinizerwell, for instabilities same applies01:57
TiagoTiago_did NOkia get a discount on the flawed chips?01:58
johnxTiagoTiago_, sandstorm, a much more interesting discussion on swappiness:
*** kthomas_vh has quit IRC01:58
DocScrutinizerI guess it's not the chips that are flawed, but the layout or hw design01:58
DocScrutinizerTiagoTiago_: if you're really intersted... I may elaborate01:58
*** kthomas_vh has joined #maemo01:59
DocScrutinizerall the following : disclaimer: AIUI & AFAIK01:59
TiagoTiago_what does AIUI stands for?01:59
infoboti heard aiui is As I Understand It02:00
TiagoTiago_IF the N900 was a car, would it be recalled due to that flaw?02:00
TiagoTiago_i see02:00
DocScrutinizerThe smartreflex bit that's been disabled is doing automatic switching of core voltage, to minimize power drop in the SoC02:00
*** rosch_ has quit IRC02:00
*** kevsim_ has quit IRC02:00
*** kthomas_vh has quit IRC02:00
infobotwell, soc is System On Chip - many embedded cpus include a variety of peripherals as well which makes them more than just a CPU.02:00
DocScrutinizernow the regulators that do that voltage regulation are in GAIA chip02:01
DocScrutinizerthe power rails go to OMAP SoC02:01
*** kthomas_vh has joined #maemo02:01
DocScrutinizerthe voltages there are changing very fast sometimes02:01
DocScrutinizertwl4030 GAIA OMAP companion chip with power management and otter supplementary functions like audio, keyboard etc02:02
*** kthomas_vh has quit IRC02:02
*** dailylinux has quit IRC02:03
*** kthomas_vh has joined #maemo02:03
DocScrutinizernow if the traces running from GAIA to SoC are too long, or have too sharp bends, or some capacitor there doesn't exactly meet the specs, or whatever...02:03
lcukso this smartreflex is uber beardy type folks optimisations02:03
lcukkinda like taking the mirrors off your car to make it more streamlined?02:03
DocScrutinizerodds are the voltage can't be regulated exactly and fast enough02:03
johnxlcuk, as is all modern mobile power management stuff02:03
lcukin a way yes02:04
DocScrutinizerso CPU is operating on wrong voltage for a few milisecons, during clock speed transitions02:04
lcukbut if we have coped for this long with out it etc02:04
johnxlcuk, eh? really? you're against better power management?02:04
lcuknot at all02:04
lcukbut i remember reading that bug report and that it did not work for everyone and caused instability when people turned it on02:05
lcukso i just didnt go further down that particular path02:05
johnxyeah, it's called 'the bleeding edge'02:05
*** kthomas_vh has quit IRC02:05
johnxnext time they'll get it right and it'll save us another 1%02:05
lcukof course!02:05
*** kthomas_vh has joined #maemo02:05
DocScrutinizerTiagoTiago_: so when eventually it became apparent the dynamic core voltage regulation caused such problems, maybe even defects in SoC, it was best decision to disable it and live with that 1% shorter standby time this will cause02:06
TiagoTiago_a kinda offtopic question that i've just reembered, would the speeds achived by waving the N900 fast with your hand be enough to affect the signals received due to doppler?02:07
TiagoTiago_I see02:07
lcukTiagoTiago_, at the first linuxtag event I went to with some folks02:07
*** nox- has joined #maemo02:07
johnxyour hands don't move at a significant fraction of c02:07
lcukwe were walking around and swinging our n810s around02:07
lcukto get gps02:07
lcuklogging about 80mph02:07
SpeedEvilTiagoTiago_: yes - but only for GPS.02:07
DocScrutinizerTiagoTiago_: there are a lot of other functions all labeled SmartReflex, that are not related to dynamic core voltage, and those can't be switched off by this sysnode writing 002:07
SpeedEvilTiagoTiago_: that's how it works02:07
sandstormcan I please get your advices about these tweaks:
lcukno sandstorm02:08
lcukgo and read the swappolube thread :P02:08
lcukthey have the same things in i think02:08
sandstormletme check02:08
*** jpinx has quit IRC02:08
DocScrutinizerTiagoTiago_: once again, all this isn't backed up by any insider knowledge, but results from mere deduction from the known facts02:09
TiagoTiago_would you consider the stuff the swapplube does to be safe?02:09
TiagoTiago_i see02:09
johnxsandstorm, I posted a link earlier about swappiness. please check read through it first. it's not nearly as clear-cut as you might think02:09
sandstormah yes they are the same but I had not seen that swappolube thread before I read those tweaks on another thread.02:10
sandstormjohnx: I've read the introduction but not the e-mails, it will take some time :)02:11
johnxbasically, what it comes down to is that different people want different behavior out of the linux VM subsystem02:11
johnxchanging swappiness is totally safe, but it might not do what you want it to02:12
johnxalso: it's not AI. it can't guess what you want to keep in memory at all costs and what you wish wasn't cached02:12
TiagoTiago_what about the other tweaks the swappolube thing does?02:12
lcuksandstorm, the swappolube package pulls together a few of these tweaks02:12
sandstormI just want all the applications reside in RAM until its critically full, is not that rational ?02:12
*** swo has joined #maemo02:13
lcukinto a nicer reinstallable, and hence reproducable02:13
SpeedEvilsandstorm: It assumes that the applications are written so that the working setr can always fit in RAM.02:13
sandstormcan you enlighten me with that ?02:13
johnxsandstorm, I know that LKML thread is long, but I think it might really help you understand the situation better than we could explain it02:13
GeneralAntillesGentle reminder to everyone to vote if you're eligible.02:13
SpeedEvilsandstorm: Plus - there are bits of code that are run once and never used again.02:13
lcuksandstorm, because application allocations and deallocations are sometimes silly02:13
sandstormjohnx: I will read it tomorrow :)02:14
lcukand some apps like to grab 50mb for something used rarely02:14
johnxsandstorm, then I'll answer questions about swappiness tomorrow ;)02:14
sandstormah allright02:14
DocScrutinizerGeneralAntilles: post link! :-D02:14
sandstormsince it is 2 am here my mind could get confused :)02:14
lcukwhats the link for GeneralAntilles ?02:14
* GeneralAntilles smacks infobot02:15
infobotextra, extra, read all about it, government is broken.  It doesn't work.  It doesn't keep our streets safe and it doesn't educate our children. Government is good at only one thing: It breaks your legs, hands you a pair of crutches, and says, 'See, without us you wouldn't be able to walk.'.  Libertarians need to STFU02:15
lcukinfobot isnt as nice as he should be02:15
sandstormZeitgeist in action :)02:16
GeneralAntilles~council is The Maemo Community Council is a five-person body chosen by the Maemo community. The Council's mission is to "represent the Maemo community's best interests to Nokia, and to act as a community conduit for Nokia-generated information."

* SpeedEvil is re-watching Babylon 5.02:18
SpeedEvilTodays was De'lens expulsion from the Grey Council.02:18
SpeedEvilI imagine it's like that.02:18
TiagoTiago_I think a problem with the N900 is it has just enough resources to make developers feel like they don't need to worry about being carefull with resource consumption whie  still  not having enough resources to spare when under anything above low load02:19
SpeedEvilThey test their app, and it works.02:19
SpeedEvilThey ship it.02:19

* lindi- wonders if one could just run both symbian and android on top of meego without any dualboot business02:34
johnxlindi-, yes. it's called virtualization. xen was working on an ARM port. so is vmware02:34
TiagoTiagohaving a Symbian VM would be usefull02:34
johnxthat would be a lot of fun trying to figure out which process is keeping the CPU awake though02:35
johnxalso, I think that's about 5 years out in terms of CPU power02:35
lindi-johnx: at least for android something lighter should work02:35
TiagoTiagoAndroid programs mostly run with that proprietary Java-like VM, no?02:35
johnxlindi-, I'd bet not. Android tends to rely on a fairly customized kernel with patches that haven't/can't go upstream02:35
lindi-johnx: and vmware is non-free so it does not count :)02:35
johnxlindi-, they're closest to market though, or at least claim to be02:36
BCMM_android's kernel is a fork rather than a patchset now02:36
johnxBCMM_, that makes me really sad02:36
johnxI was really hoping they could come to some agreement ...02:36
TiagoTiagoitms gonna just drift away over time or are they gonna keep porting patches ito it?02:36
BCMM_i like it - makes it easier to counter those who say "but it's linux!"02:37
SpeedEvilIt is good for the android devs to be in a ghetto.02:37
BCMM_in a way that doesn't rapidly lead to "what's libc?"02:37
DocScrutinizerjohnx: vmware on ARM? o.O02:37
johnxBCMM_, yeah, but I was hoping for being able to run a 'standard' linux distro on hardware that already had android02:37

BCMM_maemo has a pathced kernel, like all major distros02:41
johnxluke-jr, uhm. really not. Most maemo apps can be run on a totally vanilla kernel02:41
lindi-johnx: symbian probably would require real virtualization02:41

luke-jrBCMM_: so did Maemo02:41
luke-jrjohnx: also userland APIs02:42
luke-jrjohnx: just like Android02:42
BCMM_correct me if i'm wrong, but maemo's kernel patches are pretty much all device driver stuff, right?02:42
DocScrutinizerjohnx: thanks02:42
luke-jrBCMM_: no02:42
luke-jrBCMM_: even if you port mainline Linux 100% to the N900 hardware, it will not boot Maemo userland02:42

*** FireFly has quit IRC03:49
*** PhonicUK has quit IRC03:49
DocScrutinizerthough from a UI design and usability POV that probably should be a settings option, to either have always speakers-ringtone, or have ringtone via headset only (if attached), or first have n seconds via headset, then switch to speaker03:49
DocScrutinizeror both, obviously (speaker and headset, concurrently)03:50
TiagoTiagook, i tested now and at least with Skype calls it does ring on both, i dunno why i didn't heard anything but still got a missed call notice....03:52
DocScrutinizere.g when connecting N900 to home stereo, to play music for the party from mediaplayer, I'd not be amused to have screen clicks and ringtones and sms notifcations and whatnot via stereo @ 110dBm :-P03:52
TiagoTiagowith lack of additional profiles that is indeed a problem03:54
DocScrutinizerI made a few profiles for that, one of my profiles is called "music source"03:59

*** aloril has joined #maemo04:22
SpeedEvilYou can get substantially lower error if you can get the per-sat reception details out of the GPS. The n900 GPS can't - or won't - do this.04:22
rasterlcuk:  i know. i'm really asking - what is the value of the core os to you beyond it simply bnooting and working04:22
rasterif it is closed, or built ion tarballs from slackware or even hand-build cramfs read-only fs's04:23
rasterdoes it matter to you?04:23
TiagoTiagoi mean the distance between the true coordinates and the coordinate reported being less than what can be measured wigthout lab equipament, therefore zero04:23
rasterat what point does the "how good is your base tech" top being relevant to you?04:23
SpeedEvilTiagoTiago: I can measure 1mm without lab equipment.04:23
SpeedEvilI diddn't realise how good commercial gyros had gotten.04:24
TiagoTiagoso less than a milimeter04:24
lcukraster, i wrote liqbase for one reason, to ensure i had a solid open reliable core system.  that should answer your question.04:24
SpeedEvil~25*25mm gyro will give you .5 degree/sqrt(hr) random walk.04:24
SpeedEvil(though it is $900 now)04:24
lcukthe "base" part is the important bit ;)04:24
lcukraster, and regarding the rest04:25
TiagoTiagowhy randomness in things like accelerometers and  gyrometers don't average too zero even when unbiased?04:25
SpeedEvilTiagoTiago: because they don't know where zero is.04:25
DocScrutinizerTiagoTiago: you probably want to know what error is introduced by GPS system from  technical / design level04:26
SpeedEvilTiagoTiago: if you flip a coin a million times, you will not get 500K heads - even with an unbiased coin.04:26
lcukof course it matters, meego base is as open as it can be, its very similar to maemo at that level just organised a bit differently04:26
TiagoTiagobut the more tries you do the closer it gets, no?04:27
DocScrutinizerTiagoTiago: yes04:27

TiagoTiago_it isn't the same as a single stroke with the same lenght as the sum of the length of multiple strokes?05:17
lcukno its less related05:18

lcuki can move finger around quicker and get strokes all over05:18

ieatlinthaha, the trackpoint05:21
TiagoTiago_but why a single long stroke with the length equal to the sum of the lengths of multiple strokes doesn't consume as much processing power as the multiple strokes?05:21
TiagoTiago_is that what it's callled? i call it a nub mouse, or mouse nub05:22
*** rkbm has quit IRC05:22
ieatlinti'm just laughing because GHB is a date-rape drug05:22

ieatlintsomehow i think trying to work a mouse on it would just be awkward05:23
TiagoTiago_if it was a 5way thingy it [could work05:24
ieatlinttrackballs work i will say05:24
* lcuk has other ideas for n900 mice :P05:24
lcukTiagoTiago_, install liqflow05:24
TiagoTiago_perhaps it could be a little glass nub in the right side (where it would become the bottom while in portrait mode), and since the touch funcitonality has pressure sensitivity it would allow for 5way functionality05:25

TiagoTiago_do the particles colide with each other,. or are replled by each other?05:32
DocScrutinizerand replace the proximity sensor by a sensor of an IR optical mouse05:32
lcukno way DocScrutinizer05:33
TiagoTiago_an optical trackball, interesting idea05:33
lcukyou dont put it face down05:33

DocScrutinizer(thanks for the nice term, TiagoTiago_ :-)05:38
SpeedEviland side-illuminate05:38
DocScrutinizerSpeedEvil: yo05:38
DocScrutinizerbut the rear side fullsize touchpad is a much nicer idea yet05:39
SpeedEvilI want rear e-ink05:39
lcukpolaroid printer05:40
lcukwould be awesome05:40
DocScrutinizeryou could make the screen "transparent" by displaying your fingers positions on the touchpad by images of fingers05:41
DocScrutinizerand you can scroll and everything while holding the device like you do usually while typing on hw kbd05:41
SpeedEvillcuk: Have you investigated if you can get adequate position information from a painted surface?05:42
TiagoTiago_can the maincamera tbe used to track motion like that?05:42
SpeedEvillcuk: Like you can use an optical mouse on white paper05:42
DocScrutinizerTiagoTiago_: nope, not enough fisheye05:42
TiagoTiago_what it sees is too out of focus to track features?05:43
SpeedEvilTiagoTiago: yes05:43

SpeedEvilDocScrutinizer: I mean if you added a lens system to bring the surface into focus05:44
lcukthe video there is not based on mouse05:44
lcukits based on the facecamera and lights above05:44
SpeedEvilyes, I know05:44
DocScrutinizerbut replacing the battery cover by a capacitive touchpad should be relatively feasible05:44
lcuki doubt i could focus the face camera whenever i looked it didnt appear to show anything usable05:45
lcuk(open lence and show preview with torch on)05:45
SpeedEvillcuk: I was meaning that optical mice use a similar idea, but track on small variations on brightness.05:45
lcuklens *05:45
SpeedEvillcuk: I was meaning the face camera05:45
lcukfocus main camera *05:45
SpeedEvilbut from normal ceiling05:45
lcukahh no not really05:46
lcukthe image is awesomely noisey05:46
* lcuk is getting tired05:46
TiagoTiago_testing with Fcamera and Livefocus keepign the LED lit it seems it could work, even if the image is out of focus, you just need the "mousepad to not be too plain05:47
* DocScrutinizer is considering a POC setup by strapping two N900 together, back to back, and use the downside unit's touchscreen to move the upside unit's 'cursor'05:48
lcukTiagoTiago_, cool05:48
lcukTiagoTiago_, so thats facing the camera down on a surface05:49
lcukso some algorithm to use the patterns could theoretically bring real mouse utility05:50
TiagoTiago_eith a patterned surface i can clearly see the blobs of light and dark moving05:50
SpeedEvilTiagoTiago: the other problem is that the fps is too low05:50
lcukSpeedEvil, not really05:50
SpeedEvilTiagoTiago: mouse cams go at 1500fps05:50
lcukas a portable thing to save me carrying mouse as well05:51
lcukit would be good05:51
SpeedEvilYou can add the accel input too05:51
SpeedEvilThough I question how much that'd help.05:51
SpeedEvilGPS for really big movements. :)05:51
lcukonly to know its moving05:51
DocScrutinizerSpeedEvil: mice also have a resolution of 256 pixel05:51
*** lcuk has left #maemo05:51
*** lcuk has joined #maemo05:52
lcukhow did i close a chan :S05:52
TiagoTiago_something like  a fasffourier thingy to detect how out of focus the iamge actually is could be used to detect when you're lifiting it frmt he surface05:52
DocScrutinizerso they have a microscopic (literally) view area and this minimal spot needs to be scanned faster than you move "out of area"05:52
TiagoTiago_or is there a distance detrector for thee autofocus?05:52
lcukTiagoTiago_, leave focus at macro minimum05:53
SpeedEvilTiagoTiago: IT CAN focus down to 4cm or so05:53
TiagoTiago_Fcamera calls the lowest focus 5 centimeters05:53
lcukand just see what sort of processing we can do on the patterns05:53
lcukto see feasibility05:53
lcukthen catch edge cases05:53
SpeedEvilI'm not sure if it'll be much more focussed if you set it to 5cm than infinity05:53
lcukusing accel and other bits05:53
SpeedEvilI suspect not05:53
lcukit will be lightdark areas as said05:54
lcukgross features of the surface05:54
lcukrather than fine woodgrain05:54
lcukit might only work on certain surfaces like old mice did, but its a different usecase to play with05:54
TiagoTiago_you probably need to compoesante for the uncentered "vigneting" caused by the LED being closer to one side thant he other05:55
TiagoTiago_though depending ont he alroithm used in processing the image it might not matter05:55

lcukred led isnt it05:58

DocScrutinizerit's actually an orange LED, at least it's more shortwave than usual red ones05:59

*** dockane_ has joined #maemo06:00
*** jpinx has joined #maemo06:00
*** PhonoN900 has quit IRC06:02
TiagoTiago_and using the white LEDs you can more easilly use surfaces of different colors, things that are  aren't red and black wouldd be harder to detect the patterns with the red LED06:02
TiagoTiago_does liqflow use hardware acceleration?06:02
*** dockane has quit IRC06:03
lcukTiagoTiago_, yes06:03
lcukit makes full use of the cpu06:04
TiagoTiago_what about the GPU?06:04
lcukxvideo yuv overlay bypasses the powervr and compositing06:04
TiagoTiago_i remember reading abnout PlasmaPong that it uses shaders for running the liquid simulation06:04
lcukthen no, this is direct software driven stuff06:05
lcukgas balls is a rather nice opengl doofer06:05
lcukthats on ovi06:06
DocScrutinizer51TiagoTiago_: what's wrong with white+black surfaces when lit with red, err orange light?06:06
TiagoTiago_would it use too much processing power to make the particles in liqflow repell each other abit  to avoid them pilling up in the same place?06:07
TiagoTiago_if for example the surface i blue and black with red light it would look all dark06:07
DocScrutinizer51works perfecrly for me, with stock video cam, on a paper with normal printout it's abot 1.w lines size that's detected06:07
lcukTiagoTiago_, yes, there are alternatives :)06:07
*** hardaker has quit IRC06:08
lcukthe original version made particles expire after a time and regen anywhere, and also regen at screen boundaries06:08
TiagoTiago_,why you changed?06:08
lcukbecause its nice to have it working like it does06:09
lcukbut the variations will return06:09
TiagoTiago_perhaps the lines could introduce random tyurbulence on the particles that get close enough?06:09

BUT closing lens slider making cam window vanish and still camera-ui eating some 40perc cpu, while device GUI is basically frozen, that's definitley not appreciated :-(06:16

kwtmrmrfchik: You know, this is my first time owning a Nokia, and I thought it would be so awesome because Nokia makes so many phones.  I was so disappointed at the interface.10:07
mecekwtm, what phone is that?10:08
kwtmSorry, should have specified.  Got me a n900.10:08
jpinx-eeepckwtm: stick with it -  was too at the beginning but now I really like it10:08
mecekwtm, then you're doing it wrong. Nothing comes close to the n90010:08
kwtmWhen I got it, I was thinking, "What the bloody **** was nokia thinking???  My ancient Treo 650 was easier to use than this!!!"10:08
psycho_oreosits a bit of love it or hate it relationship with n900, don't worry, come 6 months `novelty period' time and we'll see if you still own it ;)10:09
kwtmjpinx-eeepc: Oh, I agree.  I can't live without my N900.  It is able to do so many things that other phones can't.  But it would be so much better if Nokia actually hired someone with brains to design the GUI.10:09
kwtmmece: When you say "nothing comes close", do you mean the capabilities/features or the user interface?  I agree with you on the former.10:10
kwtmmece: And, of course, the possibility that anything at all is modifiable on this FOSS phone.  But the stuff it does come with leaves much to be desired.10:10
rmrfchikn900/maemo is not about easiness. it's about geekness and nokia's research (following, as usual, fail)10:10

jpinx-eeepcStskeeps: true indeed, but it's modus operandi makes it very user friendly for non-experts10:25
RST38hrmrfchik: which they will not fix10:25
kwtmMece_: Okay, so that' point's moot.  What about scrolling --if you have a long list and you want to get to the bottom quickly (say, a list of contacts and you want to phone one near the bottom of the list), how do you go quickly to the bottom?  Ctrl-Down doesn't seem to work.10:25
RST38hrmrfchik: after all, they failed fixing the language switch for non-cyrillic physical keyboards10:25
kwtmMece_: So I end up having to stroke my finger upward, like, 50 times to get to the bottom.10:25
rmrfchikMece_: now I have merged contacts with wrong skype/jabber.10:26
kwtmrmrfchik: Oh, don't even get me started on merging/importing contacts...10:26
Mece_rmrfchik, well that blows.10:26
kwtmrmrfchik: The stupid thing wouldn't import more than 1000 contacts at once.10:26
kwtmrmrfchik: (and Mece_, this will be a question for you soon, too) so it only imported 1000 contacts, and then I'm stuck trying to figure out how to import the rest of the contacts without getting stuck with duplicate contacts.10:27

Mece_kwtm, heh, well I don't have over 1000 contacts so I don't have that problem. and I rarely bump in to giant lists that can't be shortened by typing. appmanager list scrolls super fast.10:29
rmrfchikkwtm: tell me10:29
Mece_kwtm, file manager actually. that one is painfully slow for scrolling10:29
kwtmrmrfchik: It says, "Here are the list of duplicates I found.  WHich ones would you like me to merge"?  So after 15 minutes of tapping on the checkbox of every contact, I've done about 70 or 80 contacts.10:30

rastergtk/gnome is even worse10:52

rasterKhertan1: alpha release done10:53
rasterbeta should happne this week10:53
rasterits stable10:53
kwtmKhertan1: Yeah, but other than historically, now we should all ditch Gtk and go to Qt, right?  I mean, they went GPL finally, and then the guys at Canonica say, "Oh, but GPL is *too* free --we should use something that uses LGPL".... come on, man!!!10:54
rastermy idea of alpha == what most people think is v3.0 :)10:54
*** sandstorm has joined #maemo10:54
rasterkwtm: qt is lgpl :)10:54
kwtmraster: Well, alpha is version 4.2, if you ask the KDE team. :P10:54
Mece_raster, so efl is better than qt? Actually there is efl for n900 so one could simply compare, would one be bothered.10:55

*** fab has joined #maemo10:55

kwtmraster: Okay, so back to the bottom line.  When I buy my next smartphone next year, if I go Bada, how many apps should I expect to find?  About half as many as currently available for maemo? More? Less?10:58
rasterkwtm:  dunno. as i said. dont bother abotu bada :)10:58
Mece_one of the reasons I love my N900 is that I'm not stuck with a single library. gtk, qt, efl, liqbase... the more the merrier, that's what I say..10:59
Mece_Khertan1, I take it that simplifies things?10:59
kwtmraster: Oh... I didn't realize that part.  So, ignore Bada and wait for something more linuxy to come out on Samsung?  Is there a name, like "Cada" or "Dada" or is that a secret?10:59

rasterkwtm: if you have a time machine i can jump into the future in..  let me borrow it and i'll let you know :)11:02

kwtmraster: Okay, I know that was a big vague question, but let me be more specific.  SUppose someone wants to port some killer app to SLP --say, Vim.  So, how long would you estimate it would take a developer to port vim... a month?  A week?  Half a year?11:03
*** sandstorm has joined #maemo11:03

rasterassuch we intentd to ship both efl and gtk and support both11:04
rasterefl right now is our primary internal toolkit as it frankly works better than anything else11:05
kwtmraster: Oh.  That's good news!  So, I'd estimate a delay of, say, about 3 months after the first developer version of the phone is released, and then a flood of stuff from Ubuntu after people have set up the infrastructure to port everything over?11:05
raster(and luckily they have me to make sure that in the event it doesnt... that changes)11:05
Mece_damn these interesting discussions. I'm totally missing this lecture...11:05
kwtmMece_: Wait, you're paying attention to the lecture?  Who do you think you are, some student or something? :D11:05
rasterkwtm: well as such ubuntu is already ported to arm. so it'd be a delay of.. lets say.. 0.11:05
kwtmraster: Wow.  Okay.  That's great.  Another "bottom line" question that should be easier to answer: in how many months do you expect this SLP phone to be available to the general public?11:06

RST38hraster: not engineers, managers11:11

psycho_oreosrmrfchik, there aren't many alternatives that I have looked at and liked apart from meego I'm afraid.. android is nice its own ways but its not suitable for the things I want to deal with (such as low level hardware access, the unlikely need to jailbreak, etc, etc)16:28
mgedminbut it makes the ui unpredictably sluggish16:28
lcukits premature usage thats annoying and apps expecting big desktop memory utility16:28
mgedminsince core functions get swapped out16:28
lardmanlcuk: indeed16:28
rmrfchikpsycho_oreos: if you will support nokia with money, they will continue make shit16:29
psycho_oreosrmrfchik, then again to look at the alternatives, there aren't many to begin with apart from android and the usual catch 22 with them16:29
lardman how do I get different coloured items in my calendar?16:29

*** catface has joined #maemo16:37
psycho_oreoslardman, like I said, I've never owned n8x0 series.. n900 is my first maemo device.. so for some weird reason NOLO was overwritten.. and if it was overwritten by flasher, maybe one final way is via JTAG (if that's possible with right tools/knowledge)16:38
frenchy_DocScrutinizer, where would a nokia care center be, ive searched the net but cant seem to find any info16:38
catfaceah sorry**16:38
*** catface has quit IRC16:38
DocScrutinizerfrenchy_: either 'repair' takes 5min (if they don't need to send it elsewhere) and costs a few $, or you  really got a broken hw and won't have to regret when you sell it for also a few $16:38
*** jrocha has joined #maemo16:39
lardmanpsycho_oreos: afair the n8x0 also had the NOLO business, and when you flash it only flashes one part at a time, which should mean you can recover if the flashing is halted half way. Also the flasher is supposed to check the integrity of the parts to be flashed16:39
*** kthomas_vh_ has joined #maemo16:39

psycho_oreoserez_, there will be, its not out yet16:44
lardmanjust that if the battery gets too low it can't start the kernel/flashing code and it also can't charge the battery16:44
lardmanfrenchy_: have you tried flashing it again, even though nothing shows up on the screen?16:44
frenchy_lardman, why wouldnt it charge the battery charge, isnt it supposed to do that when it gets low16:45
frenchy_lardman, yes ive tried flashing, computer doesnt recognize it16:45
lardmanthe kernel must be running to charge the battery, so if it's too low, no charging16:45
DocScrutinizerfrenchy_: N<900 has sw controlled charging16:45

timeless_pidgin... There are a couple of ways to break the network picker20:05
timeless_pidginOne is to give bad credentials for a wpa2 advanced network (where you need to present a certificate )20:05
sobczyklol, it started to work, automagically, though I removed libicd-network-usb along with it's gconf keys20:06

timeless_pidginIf your cert is password protected and you give the wrong password and cancel20:06

*** jpe has joined #maemo20:07
timeless_pidginLesson: don't give the wrong password, or don't password protect your certificate20:07
timeless_pidginBut basically iiuc what happens is that a daemon croaks and nothing respawns it20:07

CarnequeHey all, I downloaded this text adventure game Gargoyle, anyone know what directory that downloads to?  It's not in the details of the game.22:56
lcukRST38h, sure22:57

*** timeless_pidgin has quit IRC22:57

ShadowJKah... how "intuitive" and "user-friendly" touchscreens and multitouch are indeed :)23:06
ShadowJKoh it missed a swipe for a scroll and tap23:07
* RST38h hopes these all can be switched off23:07
ShadowJKRST38h, "lol"23:08
ShadowJKIn order to not confuse users, all other methods of zooming have been killed23:08

ShadowJKlike, scrolling on N90023:08
* RST38h still cannot understand the logic of that guy who killed scrollbars in Maemo523:09
kwtm"my car has cruise control, I don't need one-handed phone anymore" --ShadowJK.23:09

ShadowJKman, that girl has cut her nails and the capacitive screen is still not picking up her taps... or then the OS is playing dead23:10
ShadowJKhard to tell :-)23:10
kwtmRST38h: Wait, what?  There *used to be* scrollbars in Maemo and someone decided to remove them?  Sorry, I thought Maemo had always been this hard to use.23:10
kwtmShadowJK: It's an optical touchscreen.  It's confused by the colour blue. :)23:10
* RST38h sighs silently23:10
lcukdon't lie RST38h, you smirked at that joke as much as I did23:11
ShadowJKif kwtm was joking about the scrollbars I missed it :)23:11
RST38hlcuk: the problem is,it is not a joke...23:12
lcuki was thinking the touchscreen optics ;)23:12

* RST38h does that, in the HAM application list =)23:15
kwtmHmm, typing Z seems to work.  What about scrolllists which are not indexed by alphabetical or otherwise cannot be jumped to by typing?  Like the program launcher or the call history?23:15
RST38hthey all are since pr1.223:15
RST38hthe call history will probably get selected by caller name23:16

ShadowJKkwtm, rabies cat method?23:16
kwtmShadowJK: Yes, rabid cat.23:17
ShadowJKif only it worked in notes23:17
ShadowJKoh but i guess that one has a scrollbar23:17
* kwtm imagines self showing off to others: "My GeekPhone is far superior to your lowly iPhone! This is how I scroll!" (index and middle finger running on the N900 screen for about 20 paces)23:17
kwtmRST38h: You're right, call history can be filtered.  What about app launcher?23:18
*** TeringTuby has quit IRC23:18
* kwtm is still sore about N900 Contact app importing only 1000 contacts AT A TIME. (If it's capable of STORING more contacts, why can't they be IMPORTED all in one go??)23:19
ShadowJKGuy at work with 5800: "This is how I scroll:.. Oh wtf what hte hell is that, look!" - "Huh?! What" - *5800 guy steals a pen and starts trying to hit the tiny scrollbars on the screen*23:19
