jacekowskiMacer: yes00:05
* lardman feels the pain of a 25 kB/s download00:05
jacekowskiMacer: because motors are heavier00:05
Macerbatteries are pretty heavy00:05

jacekowskismall battery00:08
jacekowskibuilt mostly with solar cells00:08
luke-jrhow long until ARM gets power consumption down where you can just leave N900 out in the sun to charge?00:08
jacekowskiand it can fly for hours00:08
jacekowskiluke-jr: 20 years into past00:08
SpeedEvilluke-jr: n900 sized solar cell will charge n900 in 6 hours or so.00:09
jacekowskii mean, full size glider can glide or hours00:09
luke-jrSpeedEvil: is that fast enough to run it?00:09
luke-jrnot really00:09
jacekowskiso make similiar but smaller00:09
luke-jrsince discharge is ~4 hrs at best00:10
SpeedEvilluke-jr: And the backlight is usually the biggest user.00:10
SpeedEvilluke-jr: Or the modem00:10
SpeedEvilJust being 'on' doesn't use much.00:10
*** rd has quit IRC00:10
luke-jrjust being 'on' is useless w/o modem :P00:10
*** nicu has quit IRC00:10
luke-jrnot as useless as Macer, but still useless00:11
Macermaybe :)00:12
*** chus1 has left #maemo00:12

LantiziaDocScrutinizer, can I enable that R&D mode (so if something fails it continues) without reflashing?01:48

LantiziaDocScrutinizer, I've not lost anything if I reflash just the 256mb bit anyway right? (just app's - no data like contacts / emails / text messages etc)01:52

||jess|hi. I'm new to maemo. And want to install preenv which is in devel. When I choose preenv, I see it pulls lots of depencies. How can I know where those depencies come from. If those deps. exist in extras, wouldn't want to pull those from devel, would I?02:00

||jess|If I only want one package from devel, the right way would be deactivate extras-devel and then just install that one package I manually and hope it pulls the deps from extras?02:02
*** Afteris is now known as aft_away02:03
*** Rhoruns has joined #maemo02:03
FIQ|n900You can download just the package, but i guess there's a better way02:03
*** tranq has joined #maemo02:03
FIQ|n900("the package" as in, the one in -devel)02:03
alteregotbh, when I installed it I downloaded just the package.02:04
||jess|ok. I'm just going to download the one package I need, and hope all the deps are in extras (no devel nor testing)02:05

tranqhi all, I have a QT package update for PR1.2 that has appeared in my update queue.  Unfortunately, I have already upgraded to PR1.3.  Are folk aware of this?  Has the release team made a mistake?02:06
*** mece has left #maemo02:06
*** viggi has joined #maemo02:07
*** FIQ has quit IRC02:08
tranqI'm not able to install the update (which is probably good).02:08
tranqhas anyone else with PR1.3 seen this issue?02:08
tranqplease ping me if you can repro this.  I'll file a bug report if that helps.02:10
*** SpeedEvil has joined #maemo02:11
*** Mece_ has quit IRC02:11
jacekowskiit's probably because some package from external repository depends on old version02:12
tranqissue: PR1.3 package updater reports PyQT4_Full_install (PR1.2 only) as an available update02:12

Arkenoifunny, chinese watch phone i purchased 2.5 years ago not only works perfectly to now, but the battery shows no signs of wearing out, still lasts for 3 days03:06
Arkenoii expected it to die within one year03:07
ds3Arkenoi: is that a quad band phone?03:08
*** vblazquez has quit IRC03:08
Arkenoids3, i think yes, most mediatek phones are quad band, at least chipset does support it03:09
*** ZogG has quit IRC03:09
Arkenoii wonder why 3g mtk phones are not widespread still, most chinese phones are gsm-only03:09
*** ZogG has joined #maemo03:09
Arkenoiand it would be handy to have bt 3g modem in a wristwatch03:10
SpeedEvil3G modems use comparatively stupid amounts of battery.03:10
*** felipe` has quit IRC03:11
ds3Arkenoi: do they support the DUN profile?03:12

ds3now I am tempted to get one03:12
ds33G for TMO would be nice though03:13
*** ZZzzZzzz_ has joined #maemo03:13
Arkenoii frequently used it as backup cellular internet connection for my notebook03:13
Arkenoithe sim card that is in my n900 has ridiculously expensive data plan, still ok for "smartphone" use but definitely out of the question if guest windows 2008 in a virtualbox wants to get some updates :-)03:15
sp3000Crak: I've seen themes do such things, I think03:15
Crakthanks, I found theme customizer from extras-devel03:16
Arkenoihmm, google says it is tri-band (cect w600)03:17
ds3windows needs to be prohibited.03:17
Arkenoithere is a newer version available now, but (*facepalm*) it has a fatal misfeature: while in standby mode (screen backlight off), the screen image does not get updated, making it totally unusable as wristwatch :-))03:19
Arkenoimine is ok03:19

DocScrutinizerLantizia: "please use FooBar winows suite to update" is windoze-noob-speak what is what Nokia thinks is N900 target customers. For everybody with a minimum of IT knowledge that means "there are conflicts or problems n upgrade the stupid SSU in HAM can't solve". This doesn't mean *you* can't solve them03:32
*** trumee has joined #maemo03:33
DocScrutinizerdon't blame *me* for the wording in this notification. I never got the point how Nokia could sell a Linux based device to a target customer group of windows gasheads03:34
DocScrutinizermake it basically work, pusblish howtos for Linux geeks, try to tune wording and experience towards (windoze) mass market: OK.  --  Advertise to Joe Luser mass market, tune initial wording and experience to windoze noobs, then make it work evetually: FAILWALE03:39

DorfmeisterHi. I just installed Meego on my N900 (to a microSD card) and now want to add NITDroid as well, but even though I find many threads there doesn't seem to be a good tutorial for this. Could anybody help with this? I know it's not a direct topic of this channel, but maybe somebody here could help - I already tried #n900, #meego and the Nokia forum. Thanks in advance.05:39

alteregoIt's quicker when you use storage mode11:48
phellarv^ What he said11:48
psycho_oreosthough the N900's CPU is pretty much hauling its ass off, obviously ssh requires encryption11:48

Lantiziai never knew what it gave anyone anyway.... technically i've got a vodaphone sim too... but it's not a vodaphone provided handset - so I'm fine with just global or UK12:01

crashanddielardman, what displays that message?12:03
crashanddielardman, thing is, I notice that in the if branch, there's setInterval, and the timerOpenGL->start()12:03
crashanddielardman, however, in the else branch, there is only setInterval, you don't start the timer12:04
crashanddielardman, wouldn't that cause the video to not start?12:04
lardmanyes, that;s the idea12:04
lardmanno, the video should be started elsewhere12:04
lardmanthe timer just draws the video once available12:04
psycho_oreosLantizia, heh well I did OTA update... not too happy because I was forced to upgrade and I was and still am using global version. It worked needless to say.. probably one may need to use fapman and/or enable red pill mode or something for one to see the massive amounts of packages it needs to download and install12:04
crashanddielardman, but do you start the timer elsewhere?12:04

crashanddie"Measuring devices (such as parking meter, speedometer) are traditionally spelt "...meter" in all countries.[19] The word "meter", signifying any such device, has the same derivation as the word "metre", denoting the unit of length this article is about."12:53

crashanddiechem|st, metre comes from French, correct?12:54
crashanddiechem|st, and mètre, is a synonym for either the unit of length, and a device to measure something.12:55
crashanddiechem|st, hence, there is no reason why there would a difference in spelling between the two in English.12:55

DocScrutinizerso, again my initial question: what is it that usage() is going to print to stdout?18:21
kerioDocScrutinizer: NameError: usage not defined18:21
DocScrutinizeruhuh - now you confused me completely18:22
kerioDocScrutinizer: if there's no usage() and you call usage(), then python happily goes "wtf dude"18:22
keriooptparse has a default usage screen where it lists the options if you call it with -h or if you use wrong options18:22
DocScrutinizerare you suggesting the regular reaction to python xy --help should be NameError: usage not defined ??18:22
kerioof course not18:23
keriobecause good scripts use optparse/argparse or define a way to display some help :)18:23
chem|stkerio: yeah argparse is what I said earlier and that would be my way too (as 20 lines of code get 5...)18:23
keriobut argparse is just a slightly better optparse18:24
kerioand there's no argparse in 2.518:24
keriooptparse was introduced in python 2.318:24
keriooptparse is a more convenient, flexible, and powerful library for parsing command-line options than the old getopt module.18:24

DocScrutinizeralterego: janne123's problem is how to combine powerkernel and nitdroid into a multiboot enabled system on N900. So probably he's not completely wrong in this chan19:57

*** m3 has left #maemo20:00
*** slonopotamus has quit IRC20:00
DocScrutinizerbasically I guess nitdroid *might* come with some "proprietary" multiboot solution, and most recent powerkernel comes with uBoot. I'd be surprised if those two play together nicely20:01
pupnikspeaking of hate, when are we going to get a translation layer between android and normal linux20:03
DocScrutinizeranyway, the porper root question is: "how to integrate nitdroid (and its boot tool whatever it is) into a uBoot enabled multiboot system with maemo as primary system?"20:03
*** eMHa has joined #maemo20:05
jacekowskiDocScrutinizer: proper root question is how to build dalvik with glibc20:05
hatebreedercan i remove power_kernel and then try nitdroid somehow?20:05

DocScrutinizerhatebreeder: if you revert your system to a stock PR1.3 setup (probably by another flashing), so there's no mor epowerkernel and uBoot in the way - you can use nitdroid following their generic instructions about how to install it. This is a mere guess as I never even touched nitdroid or their website or docs20:18

gustavo-ferreiraHi all, i was wondering if someone in here could help me on get a title for a really good book on programmin in C on Linux? Although i use linux for about an year and half, i consider myself a newbie on this matter. I know how to program in C, but just the ANSI C. I'm right now with my eyes on this book: Could someone suggest if this book is good enough or if23:44
gustavo-ferreira there is a better one? Just remember, it has to be a book for newbie. Thank you in advanced!23:44
