*** florian has quit IRC03:10
*** lsm5_ has quit IRC03:10
Robot101what's emergency charging mode?03:11
javispedrothe charging chip feature where it will charge even when voltage is so low it can't boot03:11
Robot101some kind of crazy slow trickle charge?03:11
javispedroyep, up to a certain threshold. then it boots and proceeds to normal charge03:12
javispedrowhile it's doing this, led is steady yellow (not blinking) and power button does nothing03:12
Robot101fun - is your battery dying or something?03:12
nox-so you sucked you battery `more empty' that it should have been?03:12
nox-than it...03:13
javispedrothe issue (i guess) is that it just died on me (after a lot of low bat warnings), and I just quickly plugged it into the wal03:13
javispedro*wall charger03:13
javispedrousually previous times it died on me I let it rest for a while, and seems the battery will recover some small charge..03:14
javispedro(for a while = commute time, etc.)03:14

infobotRemove battery for 1 minute. Insert battery. Plug powered Nokia wallcharger to device. Watch steady amber. Let sit and charge. Do NOT try to boot. After 30 min, you got either a) a booted up N900, b) flashing amber which means you can boot, c) steady amber going off - in this case start over again with ~flatbatrecover05:08

DocScrutinizerRobot101: emergency recover charging is an autonomous (non sw controlled) charging mode of bq24150 chip, where fastcharger detection is done in hw by 1707 USB PHY chip, and bq24150 is set to absolutely 'safe' power-on defaults like max 3.6V cell charging voltage and some rather low current limit. bq24150 also directly switches on red and green indicator LED to signil this mode with a steady amber ind light05:14

RobbieThe1stHm, got a question for anyone that knows: I have a script for the N900 that runs in a maemo-based ramdisk chroot. X is not running, as is almost anything else. Is there some sort of stand-alone terminal "client" that I can run to provide the user access to a shell?11:37
RobbieThe1stLike how desktop linux(including Debian) provide a BusyBox rescue shell in the kernel that provides a user-accessable terminal... I know I can run SSH, or just run commands directly in a shell-script, but is there any way to get a proper prompt/terminal etc.?11:39

RobbieThe1stHm.... This makes things complicated. I'm sure it'd work fine with a framebuffer kernel... But I don't have one of those... Hm...12:10
psycho_oreosshouldn't be hard to make a framebuffer kernel :)12:11
RobbieThe1stNo, it's not. But the whole purpose of my program is to work on "stock" N900s... asking everyone to install a framebuffer kernel seems overkill12:12
ieatlintexcept he's running a chroot environment12:12
ieatlintplus a framebuffer could push the kernel size too big12:12
ieatlinta 2mb limit as i understnad12:12
RobbieThe1stkernel's fine - There's already a good framebuffer kernel out there, which works. In my case though, I'm using bootmenu-n900 to launch a script which copies important files to a ramdisk, then chroots into that12:13
*** benh has quit IRC12:14
ieatlinti'm curious though.. if you're not entering x, and just want a shell, you shouldn't need anything graphical12:14
RobbieThe1stCurrently, I'm using the text2screen application to interface with the user12:15

ieatlinthah, a google search has your tmo post as top hit12:21
*** asj_ has quit IRC12:22
RobbieThe1stI've found it used in a couple of scripts, and ended up figuring out enough to make it work12:22
*** chx has quit IRC12:23
ieatlinttry and see if you can print something to the screen with it, and then issue backspace chars12:23
ieatlintif so, you can work out a nasty hack :P12:23
RobbieThe1stWell, I'd have to handle that myself, by clearing that line, then writing it back with the new text.12:24
*** crashanddie has joined #maemo12:24

alteregoSure, you can force landscape mode if you want.17:17
alteregoBaring in mind that, well, you can only see one window at a time. So does it matter that the root window is in charge of orientation? ...17:18
sivangstacked windows are like inide an MDI ?17:18
DocScrutinizer( Baring in mind that, well, you can only see one window at a time) that's why I suggested to instantiate a new top level window, without parent17:20
alteregoMohammadAG: like, onSlidTo(3) -> window.setAttribute(Qt::WA_Maemo5LandscapeOrientation, true) etc.17:20
alteregoI do however think mixing up landscape/portrait like this is a bad idea.17:21

DocScrutinizerlife is boring at large, until you put some sense in it18:15

javispedrowell, unless you use only qt apis :P18:17
alteregoI think most of the APIs I'm interested in are the same.18:17
alteregoIn fact, from my two apps perspective, there's nothing different from the application code. Just radically different UI code18:18

alteregoBut I can't be bothered anymore.18:18
alteregoCall me lazy I guess :P18:19
DocScrutinizermy recent knowledge is "you can migrate properly written maemo apps by push of a button" - if that doesn't deliver then meego did something *really* BAD18:19

DocScrutinizernothing more, just saying20:19
tank-manfelipec, "popularity" ratings can also be abused. All that an author has to do is setup a bunch of fake accounts to rate his app20:20
sivangguys, the hildon porting offer is to make sure maemo legacy apps use the same L&F on meego?20:20
sivangI was not really able to understand what it tries to achieve from the email, to be honest20:20
*** gomiam has joined #maemo20:20
sivangif that is so, is it our interest to make it succedd?20:20
sivangI mean, I think it is20:20

javispedroso no way to close them.20:21
*** gomiam has quit IRC20:21
javispedroand hildon offers quite a lot of features that depend on hooks in the window manager20:21
felipecDocScrutinizer: but if you have thousands of apps, you need ways to sort them out, and popularity is a good starting point to find good ones20:21
javispedroso those have to be ported over too20:21
felipectank-man: that can be done right now20:22
DocScrutinizerno, it's a good starting point to find popular ones. The new brilliant ones never get a chance20:22
felipectank-man: in fact, right now it's easier to abuse the system... all you have to do is make many releases20:22
javispedrofelipec: I'd argue about needing a "sort by download count" option, but I do believe that popularity!=downloadcount20:23
sivangjavispedro: so this is the wa to cater for cross platformness, and not Qt. We must have this communicated properly20:23
sivangwhat should we do?20:23
javispedrosivang: elaborate?20:23
*** missshin has quit IRC20:23
DocScrutinizerjavispedro: aiui there *sIS* a sort-by-dlcount20:23

sivangjavispedro: So, a while a go I decided to try and help make the corss platorm developer experience beter20:24
DocScrutinizerjavispedro: just it's not called "popular"20:24

yohomerHi. I'm a brand new n810 user (yea!) .... version 5.2008.43-7 .... wondering which repositories (catalogs) I should have in the application manager.20:24
sivangjavispedro: and I would like tocome up with guidelines for streamlined porting of apps20:24
javispedrosivang: so your opinion is to force Gtk+ devs to use Qt?20:25
yohomerI have but it isn't version specific20:25
felipecDocScrutinizer: sort by download count? where?20:25
sivangjavispedro: so we should make it clear that pure qt apps are not thr gith way to go (yet) for that, since to achieve the we need to use the MeeGo framework20:25
sivangjavispedro: no! :)20:25
*** hardaker has quit IRC20:26
sivangjavispedro: I am just trying to devise a proper guide that describes the available options. given there are also NOkia efforts to make things easier through QML or Qt Components20:26
javispedrosivang: I understand what you want to do, but there's a bunch of Gtk+ apps and even plain Xlib apps out there that might never get ported -- and it is quite interesting if those run.20:26
*** quanttrom has joined #maemo20:26
javispedros/interesting if those run/desirable to run those20:26
sivangjavispedro: right, so one of the ways is to "if you app is not supported by the current runtime on meego, see if you ca help the hildon porting initiative with a patch a fix relevant for your usage"20:27
DocScrutinizerfelipec:  looks quite sorted by dl-count20:27

ieatlintwell, to "redirect traffic from n900 to ethernet on my pc" would be n900->pc->internet23:44
*** rd has joined #maemo23:44
ieatlintalthough he does specify also in the other direction, in which case he would indeed need the power kernel23:44
oshinn900->pc->internet would never need any kernel.23:45
oshini mean, it still need default kernel.23:45
ieatlintyeah, that was my comment23:45
ieatlintthe masquerading would be on the pc23:45
ieatlintstock kernel on n900 would work for that23:45
ieatlintyeah, we're both saying the same thing, just misunderstanding each other :P23:46
