IRC log of #maemo for Thursday, 2011-02-03

javispedromight be.... ie it might intercept call to true and run a builtin?00:00
anidelunless our sysadmins agree :)00:00
*** lucent_ has quit IRC00:00
DocScrutinizeror wait, probably bash is using internal true, even when you ask for /bin/true00:00
anideljavispedro, probably.. how ` is called? ' is a quote, " is a double-quote and ` ?00:00
anidelDocScrutinizer, thought about that as well..00:00
*** hannesw_ has quit IRC00:00
anidelshould be weird.. /bin/true is one thing.. .true is another00:00
javispedroyeah, it would be news if it was builtin-ing a call to /bin/true..00:01
anidelif I specify a path, it's because I want to be sure you run whatever is on the FS00:01
DocScrutinizerwhatever, I'm sure your condept has worse problems than that00:01
DocScrutinizernever heard you need to trap SIGCHLD to get kbd input00:01
* javispedro goes watch some TV for a change00:01
Sc0rpiusI still don't get it why can't you choose your own shell, even if you're not root00:01
anidelDocScrutinizer, well it was just to get all "weird" signals, 1, 3, 15, 16, 1700:01
Sc0rpiusif you can edit the script, you can use whatever you want00:01
*** larsivi has quit IRC00:02
anidelSc0rpius, I can, but this is work related.. some constraints on the way we do things in here... we can , but we should branch off the script we're using00:02
anideland in our team we don't want that.. so.. was trying to understand what's the real issue here00:02
anidelthat's why I asked for a bash guru :)00:03
DocScrutinizerwhatever, SIGCHLD gets sent from child to parent process when child quits. child may be any arbitrary process started by parent00:03
anidelyep, that's why I think BASH is doing something particular with `/bin/true`00:04
*** rblank has joined #maemo00:04
DocScrutinizerthat's why *I* think SIGCHLD is not the correct signal for any usecase faintly resembling yours00:04
Sc0rpiuscan I install a previous version of any software using apt-get ?00:05
Sc0rpiusand not the latest one?00:05
*** Extends___ has quit IRC00:05
VenemoSc0rpius: if the previous one is still present in the repo then yes00:05
anidelDocScrutinizer, we are also wondering that.. and we'll think about it... let's assume we need it.00:05
VenemoSc0rpius: 'apt-get install thepackage=version'00:05
anidelit's now a curiosity..00:05
Sc0rpiusand how can I browse versions available in the repo using apt-cache?00:05
VenemoSc0rpius: that I don't know.00:06
VenemoSc0rpius: you can use the package interface though00:06
DocScrutinizerwhen you need it, you must be happy with the way it works. Where's the problem then?00:06
anidelit works differently in bash and dash .. I wanted to understand why00:06
*** scoobertron has joined #maemo00:06
DocScrutinizerwell, read the source of bash and dash and you'll know for sure00:07
anidelthanks :p00:07
*** NIN101 has quit IRC00:07
Sc0rpiusapt-cache showpkg <package>00:07
DocScrutinizerbash might implement monitoring of childs by its own00:07
DocScrutinizerdash might not00:08
*** scoobertron has quit IRC00:08
anidelit might...00:08
Sc0rpiusthank you Venemo it worked00:08
DocScrutinizerSIGCHLD isn't usually meant to be used in trap00:08
anidelwhy not? if I want to monitor my childs why shouldn't I use it in trap?00:09
DocScrutinizerit's simply not explicitly masked out as there's nothing *bad* happening if you use a trap on SIGCHLD00:09
DocScrutinizerbecause there are better ways to monitor subshells. And monitoring child processes is a meaningless effort00:10
anidelyou can't possibly now all the cases one need to do something00:11
anidelI might agree on this very specific case00:11
anidelbut I wouldn't rule it out a priori for all the cases out there00:11
DocScrutinizeranidel: bash: help wait00:11
*** leandrosansilva has joined #maemo00:12
DocScrutinizerit's completely academic00:12
*** scoobertron has joined #maemo00:12
DocScrutinizerno purpose to learn about it, in RL00:12
anidelno I know what you mean00:13
anidelbut in this case I am , as said, under constraints.. I didn't write the script, but I need to use it as is.. on the client machine sh -> bash and there's fine... on our test boxes sh -> dash and it doesn't even enter the loop.00:13
anidelUnderstanding what exactly is different, helps and it's also academic00:14
anidelno matter what one thinks about how things are done00:14
DocScrutinizermeh, find a way to make nonsense behave nonsensical on all shells then. Not my problem00:15
*** lucent_ has joined #maemo00:15
Sc0rpiusI'd still change the first line of the script and that's it00:15
anideloh come on...this was just a question of why the two shells behave differently, if you don't care  then yeah it's not your problem...00:15
Sc0rpiusn need to be rude but come on00:16
Sc0rpiusnow that's a STUPID question00:16
Sc0rpiusdash is a TOTAL different shell00:16
Sc0rpius,like csh, ash, ksh00:16
Sc0rpiusTOTALLY differents00:16
Sc0rpiusyou should NEVER expect to behave them identically00:16
Sc0rpiusif you program for bash YOU HAVE TO USE BASH00:16
Sc0rpiusthen go out and learn dash and program for that00:16
corecodeanybody know how i can tell fmms to scale the images it displays?00:17
anidelThings are goind wrong here :)00:17
anidelif you write a script that could work on different shells00:17
anidelwouldn't you learn these differences?00:17
anidelI would.. and that's what I am trying to do here.00:17
DocScrutinizerthis usecase is so bizzare not even bash manual writers bothered to explain it00:17
DocScrutinizerso why should you?00:17
*** jhb has joined #maemo00:18
anidelI'm not offending.. you guys are pusshing in different directions and don't get that I just asked what could be different in invoking `/bin/true` in dash and bash.00:18
corecodeanidel: what are you trying to do?00:18
Sc0rpiusit's hard to write a script that works on different shells, that's why they invented, decades ago, the #! command in the first line.00:18
DocScrutinizerit's a completely useless command sequence, and when it works different in another shell, so be it00:18
*** lbt_ is now known as lbt00:18
anidelI KNOW it's HARD.. that's why I went here , thought it would be something nice that would help understand a behaviour00:19
DocScrutinizerbash uses builtins frequently00:19
corecodeso what is this about?00:19
anidelcorecode, nothing fancy.. I have a trap that traps SIGCHLD and a while loop on `/bin/true`. The trap callback is called in dash when true exits, while in bash it is not. Trying to understand why00:19
DocScrutinizeralso bash has quite sophisticated subprocess management00:19
DocScrutinizersee `help coproc`00:20
anidelI know perfectly, when bash was born I was there.00:20
DocScrutinizerdash prolly hasn't00:20
DocScrutinizerand doesn't00:20
DocScrutinizerand that's why00:20
*** hannesw_ has joined #maemo00:20
corecodeanidel: are you calling "true" or "/bin/true" or "command true"?00:21
corecodeand bash replaces it with a builtin?00:21
Sc0rpiuswell if you read the mans00:21
Sc0rpiusyou can see that dash and bash implement command substitution differently00:21
Sc0rpiusthat is using `command`00:21
Sc0rpiusin bash, it escapes to the current shell, execute the command00:22
Sc0rpiusin dash (from the man): The shell expands the command substitution by executing command in a subshell environment00:22
Sc0rpiusso when the subshell exits, you're fucked00:22
Sc0rpiusin bash, it's the same shell all the time00:22
corecodefwiw, my linux bash will run the binary00:22
DocScrutinizerwhat I said00:22
Sc0rpiusbecause SIGCHLD... what DocScrutinizer said, it's for ANY child process00:23
Sc0rpiusnot the one you want00:23
anidelSc0rpius, THAT is what I was looking into the MAN ... which section is that?00:23
anidelI know about CHLD00:23
Sc0rpius"Command substitution" look it up in both mans (bash & dash)00:23
Sc0rpiusin bash equals to escape to current shell00:23
Sc0rpiusin dash equals to fork to a subshell00:24
corecodeanidel: my bash will call the trap00:24
corecodewell, does00:24
*** MadViking has quit IRC00:24
corecodeonly if i use /bin/true tho00:24
*** MadViking has joined #maemo00:24
anidel ?00:25
DocScrutinizeralias /bin/true true00:25
Sc0rpiusnow compare that to dash00:26
DocScrutinizerwho would EVER EVER EVER care about when a shell receives a SIGCHLD? o.O00:26
*** GNUtoo|laptop has quit IRC00:26
corecodeDocScrutinizer: i do00:26
anidelwait.. here it just says that it executes COMMAND and substitutes it.. doesn't say how it executes it00:27
corecodeDocScrutinizer: i have scripts that use it00:27
DocScrutinizernow THAT script sure has to be interesting00:27
corecodei don't know what you are arguing about00:27
javispedroand you have read about the wait statement? ;)00:27
corecodeyes, i use that too00:27
corecodeand job control00:27
corecodeDocScrutinizer: just because you can't think of a use doesn't mean that there are infinite very reasonable uses of that00:28
Sc0rpiusyou know what I would do?00:28
Sc0rpiusinstead of $COMMAND &00:29
Sc0rpiusI would write a wrapper00:29
Sc0rpiusa .sh that runs $COMMAND (without the &) and then send a trap when it's finished00:29
DocScrutinizerI tend to use my wetware cycles better than trying to figure differneces between shells for usecases that *might* be imaginable but I never ever will run into them00:29
corecodeanidel: so why doesn't it trap?00:30
corecodeDocScrutinizer: yea, you rather rant about it on irc00:30
*** nidO has quit IRC00:30
anidelso let say: ASSUMING you are FOR WHATEVER reason FORCED (or die) to use trap 17 (or trap CHLD)...and you run into this issue, WOULD you go and look at the difference between dash and bash? I would and went here to ask as I couldn't find it. After complaining about SOMETHING else, you guys finally gave me the answer "Command Subistitution". Thanks :)00:30
DocScrutinizerI suggested that before, Sc0rpius00:30
corecodeanidel: i would try it on both to make sure it works00:30
corecodebut i'm sure it will00:31
corecodebecause this is basics00:31
anidelcorecode, I am not sure yet.. even if bash doesn't create a subshell it should still have a child to run /bin/true I guess it won't trap SIGCHLD00:31
*** davyg has quit IRC00:31
corecodeanidel: i keep telling you, my bash traps SIGCHLD when i run /bin/true00:31
Sc0rpiuswell I haven't tried that00:31
*** MadViking has quit IRC00:32
*** MadViking has joined #maemo00:32
corecodeyou can also just force a child00:32
corecodeby using ()00:32
corecode(true) will send a sigchld as well00:32
DocScrutinizerlet's say I have an icepick and a bag of feathers, and I MUST smoke a pipe using those... what would I do..................00:32
anidelcorecode, u tested like this: trap 17 then while `/bin/true` ; do sleep 1000; done00:32
*** leandrosansilva has quit IRC00:32
corecodeanidel: no, i test it like this:00:32
anidelfunction bail_out () { echo bailed; exit}  then trap bail_out 1700:33
*** wmarone-n900 has quit IRC00:33
DocScrutinizerbye folks, that's getting too weird here00:33
anidelDocScrutinizer, yes because you guys insisted in forcing your own opinions00:33
corecodetrap 'echo o hi' SIGCHLD00:34
anideland don't listen.. I said I AM FORCED to do that.00:34
DocScrutinizerno, because you insist in using a hammer to cook a chicken00:34
anidelI AM FORCED00:34
corecodeprints "o hi"00:34
Sc0rpiusfirst time I heard somebody is forced to use a specific shell00:34
ProteousMmm, hammer cooked chicken00:34
Sc0rpiusat work00:34
anidelah.. come on now :)00:34
DocScrutinizerBS, I'll force you to walk on water00:34
anidelI explained before00:34
corecodeanidel: i don't think these folks here are useful00:34
anidelamazing :)00:35
corecodeanidel: tell me which other # you're in and i can chat with you there00:35
DocScrutinizergo to your boss and ask how to do it00:35
anidelit's so simple...00:35
corecodeanidel: or do you prefer convincing the internet that they are wrong?00:35
*** iDont has joined #maemo00:35
DocScrutinizer"boss, I *MUST* walk on water, I'm FORCED to do it. Why doesn't it work when it's above 0°C?"00:35
anidelthis is a old script that we are using EVERYWHERE and don't want to change unless we need to.. is it so difficult to undestand that? :)00:35
corecodei see00:35
anidelok.. anyway time to go home.. corecode thanks for your support00:35
corecodeit works here, that's all i can say00:36
Proteouscorecode gives it the "works on my machine" seal of approval00:36
anidelwait I'll paste you in pastebin corecode00:36
javispedroDocScrutinizer: "you don't have enough SYNERGY!!" <runs away>00:36
Proteousyeah, if only you moved this to the cloud you'd be fine00:37
corecodethat's /bin/sh00:37
corecodenot bash00:37
corecodewhy are you using backticks?00:38
anidelDocScrutinizer, Sc0rpius I understand your point but it's like saying "don't use Linux then and use Windows"00:38
anidelif you don't get a reason behind something, just accept it... that was it00:38
*** piggz_ has quit IRC00:38
DocScrutinizerjavispedro: I'm just getting angry when somebody comes with a borked to the bones concept and wants help to put it to work, rather than fix the BS in foundation00:38

ebzzry(Not to be rude, tankman) But either you're trolling or you are ignorant, I'd assume the former.05:21
ShadowJKshort answer: pressed on time the device specs were removed of things deemed unnecessary like bluetooth file browsing (because apparently when n900 is both phone and tablet you dont have phone to browse anymore) and bt keyb (since you have builtin keyb) and bluetooth outgoing interwebs (since n900 has cellular internets builtin)05:22
ShadowJKand those untested things were disabled in the configuration files05:22

DocScrutinizerlow absolute number of N900 sold (compared to popular phones of Nokia) causes repair facilities being a sparse resource. Then the "complex" OS aka firmware is likely to cause a huge number of false positives, so they won't hand out replacements easily, and retail shows don't have competence to "fix" soft errors09:22
DocScrutinizerand mooo09:22
*** drj_cro has joined #maemo09:24
DocScrutinizerGerman repair shops all have a "usually 2 weeks, sometimes longer" policy for N900 repairs09:25
DocScrutinizerthey all send in almost every N900 - i.e. if it's not fixable by any semi-talented tech user as well09:26
*** MadViking has quit IRC09:26
*** avs has joined #maemo09:28
DocScrutinizerthe special tools (fixtures, jigs, tools, spare parts) needed for N900 are simply too expensive for the half a dozen N900 they might see coming in for repair during a year09:28
DocScrutinizer(the bane of too many service centers :-P)09:30
*** pcacjr has quit IRC09:30
RobbieThe1stWhile I might agree with you, I have to say that if -I- can fix one with the tools I have lying around :\09:30
johnxRobbieThe1st, then you're worth more per year than a service tech earns09:31
DocScrutinizersure, but then you got "infinite" time resources and surely better knowledge about the device, than a nokia care center09:32

DocScrutinizerwhen I asked about my power button they fscked up at Nokia repair facility, the shop told me they either *need* to send in again as it's been Nokia that broke it. OR they can repair "ambulant" but that will cost *me* ~40EUR09:34
johnxthe problem is invariably that after someone passes a certain skill level, their time is better spent doing something else than working in a repair center09:35

DocScrutinizernow that's been about a very simple SMD switch that either got loose and needs 30s with the hot iron, or needs a complete replacement of switch (10min) or even a swap of whole PCB (send in to Nokia anyway)09:37
DocScrutinizerbut incl all the dis- and re-assembling and bureaucratic shit they are easily hitting the 1h mark09:39
DocScrutinizerand it's unclear how much Nokia is willing to pay them for an ambulant fix - probably nothing at all in this case09:40
RobbieThe1stWell, I guess that's why you keep a soldering iron yourself - makes things a -lot- faster when things break09:40
*** pcacjr has joined #maemo09:40
DocScrutinizerthat's an option I keep for the time when the switch breaks completely :-)09:41
DocScrutinizerI'm too scared by the one device that ceased working after I disassembled it (and I'm for sure no less skilled than any arbitrary repair shop dude, so that's another problem they have to count in and deal with)09:43

DocScrutinizerso they have 3 centers with one employee rather than one with 3 of them?10:15
jonwilin any case given how fast they took to make the "replace rather than repair" decision, the number of repair people they have doesn't matter in this case10:16
jonwilThey had at least 3 employees sitting there front-of-house dealing with customers. Plus several technicians that I saw in the back room through the open door10:16
DocScrutinizerthat decision was a statement of the shop where you sent in the device. It only means "we can't do anything as it's more complicated than batery swap. We send it in"10:17

DocScrutinizerShadikka: 1) reflash  2) clean contacts of SIM and SIM holder  3) delete all SMS and contacts on SIM, using another phone (or SIM reader)  4) *carefully* bend the SIM holder contacts a little bit outwards/up, so they give higher pressure to the SIM's contact pads15:02

Venemo_N900LjL: or if you want just a tablet, there are those from Archos16:29
LjLVenemo_N900: as a relatively cheap birthday present for my sister (and to tinker with a little before her birthday comes :P) - she expressed interest for ebooks on the one hand and things like ipod touch's on the other, so i thought an N810 might be a sorta reasonable choice. N900 is expensive...16:30
DocScrutinizerIf Nikolaus of Goldeico had asked me, I had suggested to use case, LCD, antenna, and battery, of an arbitrary Nokia phone, as you can get those as spare parts easily in ~30 shops of every mid sized town16:30
Venemo_N900LjL: what about an Archos 5 or Archos 43?16:30
DocScrutinizerwhile for the GTA04 you need to kill 200+EUR worth of hardware to recycle the 50EUR screen and the 5EUR case and shit16:30

Venemo_N900LjL: you can get a used archos 5 for ~150€, and it's better than the N810.16:32

DocScrutinizera new N810 for <100€ *is* a good deal16:50
Venemo_N900LjL: well ask someone who actually has one. I heard it's good16:51
Venemo_N900LjL: it can run angstrom and meego too besides android16:52
LjLwell i'd probably prefer to keep Android on it, but you have a point in that if you can flash other OS's, then obviously you should be able to root its Android too..16:53
DocScrutinizerlilfor an occasional web browsing N810 is just fine. Even music from youtube works fine16:53

ieatlint"LONDON – Egyptian authorities forced Vodafone to broadcast pro-government text messages during the protests that have rocked the country, the U.K.-based mobile company said Thursday." ... this is why support for SMS-CB really needs to be added to the n90023:51
ieatlintimagine all those users who missed out on these messages :(23:51
Sc0rpiuswhat's SMS-CB?23:51
ShadowJKcell broadcast23:51
*** Dialekt has joined #maemo23:52
Sc0rpiusthat sounds like "spam" to me23:52
Sc0rpiusactually, what does it has to do with the mobile? SMS-CB is implemented at SMSC level23:52
VenemoSkyscraper: it needs to be turned off in order for the SDK to work23:52
Sc0rpiusthe mobile would just receive a normal SMS.23:52
SkyscraperVenemo: ok good... i have checked the "permanent" checkbox ;)23:52
VenemoSkyscraper: you need to modify your kernel line23:53
MohammadAGit was password protected23:53
VenemoMohammadAG: you can't recover a microSD password23:53
hajI wonder if I'll be able to use a Nokia carcharger to charge my N900 on this old bike I'm "restoring" ->
SkyscraperVenemo: installer done that for me i think23:53
hajIt's 6V...23:53
Proteousdo we need to watch a youtube video to answer that question?23:53
hajYou should, it's a nice bike :)23:53
Proteousuh huh23:54
ieatlintSc0rpius: see bug #834723:54
povbotBug Cell Broadcast Feature not available23:54
hajnah.. but I wonder if the 12V charger will do anything at 6 volts :)23:54
Proteousit won't23:54
ShadowJKhaj, probably better to use that 2+3.5mm to musb adapter23:54
ShadowJKif you have one23:54
* Sc0rpius goes to read the bug23:55
Skyscraperanyone already developed an app which does some thinks when n900 registers at GSM CELLID xy23:55
* SpeedEvil tries to remember who here was from egypt.23:55
MohammadAGVenemo, it was 123423:55
MohammadAGI'm close to killing someone23:55
hajShadowJK: and just connect it directly to the 6V battery? problem is that the power goes up to about 7V when running at high revs..23:56
VenemoMohammadAG, lol23:56
ShadowJKhaj, so theoretically it accepts 3-11V23:56
*** marciom has quit IRC23:56
ShadowJKin practice it goes into meltdown sometimes :)23:56
hajShadowJK: I don't think I'd like meltdown.. :)23:56
DocScrutinizerShadowJK: where from these specs?23:57
hajShadowJK: I guess it should be safe enough when the motor is not running though...23:57
ShadowJKDocScrutinizer, 2mm charging system accepts 10V with sufficient input impedance, so..23:57
