licenseda simple question: how can i turn off usb mass storage mode?01:45
licensedi ummount media on pc, but on n900 appears connected usb mode01:45
SpeedEvilThe easy way is to pull out the plug, and put it back01:46
*** dangergrrl has quit IRC01:47
SpeedEvilOtherwise, I think there is an entry in the taskbar menu to do it01:47
*** wmarone has quit IRC01:47
Estel_Unfortunatelly, no. Status menu does contain entry for it, but it is active only in charging mode01:48
Estel_after selecting mass storage or pc suite, its just info.01:49
Estel_probably doable via fancy xterm command... Maybe, someday, someone will rewrite statusbar applet for that ;) Still, plugging and unplugging is faster01:49
Estel_I would just unplug and plug from dekstop, to avoid wear and tear on N900 port01:50
SpeedEvilI vaguely remember tehre is actually a command line applet01:50
SpeedEvilAlso - popping the back cover01:50
Estel_... poping the back cover? should it not affect only sd card?01:50
SpeedEvilIgnore me, sorry01:51
Estel_btw, funny workarounds for such a simple task. It seems, that we really could use applet replacement01:51
SpeedEvilI've just been drilling out rivets.01:51
licensedyes i use plug and unplug01:51
licensedhehehe it's just for know if it's a bug01:51
SpeedEvilSee my above rant about 'dozens of interconnected closed-source apps.01:51
Estel_(BTW, I've glued a magnet to my sensor, so I can remove cover without that irritating mechanism)01:51
SpeedEvil(though I vaguely recall that there is actually a command to call to change usb mode01:52
Estel_I'll check that01:52
DocScrutinizerthere is01:52
Estel_maybe it's good learning material, to create own simple applet?01:52
DocScrutinizerthere's and, and I'm sure there've been similar scripts for ass rage mode01:54
Estel_I just prepared myself set of scripts, for unmounting/mounting microsd, or MyDocs, or both, or swapping swap to internal eMMC (I use swap on microsd)01:54
*** nmjnb has quit IRC01:54
Estel_so, it basically just ask to be put into powermenu button01:55
Estel_thx DocScrutinizer01:55
Estel_if someday I'll pass my non-coder period, I'll surely write applet replacement for that ;P01:55
Estel_BTW, it brings me to serious question i totally forgotten01:56
DocScrutinizerEstel_: /usr/sbin/osso-mmc-mount.sh01:56
*** geaaru has quit IRC01:57
Estel_hehehe i recreated it instead of checking if its there01:57
Estel_anyway I've added fany notifications to it ;)01:57
Estel_btw, about my question - I've created powermenu entry to execute01:58
Estel_echo mem >/sys/power/state01:58
Estel_Looking at other entries, I've used "visible=flight"01:58
Estel_so, I would like to see thid entry only during flight mode01:58
Estel_(because gsm connection put phone out of mem power state)01:59
Estel_ho ever, no matter what I try, this button is visible and functional all the time01:59
SpeedEvilI find 'queen beecon' handy to call scripts01:59
Estel_no big deal, but I would like to understand how it works01:59
Estel_yes, but I just like to have it in powerbutton :p02:00
SpeedEvilRemember that you need to add the script to the input to /etc/sudoers recreator - if you want it run as root02:00
Estel_yea, did it02:00
Estel_without that it simply does not work02:00
*** Pavel has quit IRC02:00
Estel_I've used same method as for "top in xterm" powerbutton entry - it basically call terminal with that command.02:01
Estel_ho ever, as I've said, it seems to ignore "visible" parameter.02:01
Estel_also, it would be great to not open terminal on execution, but I have no other idea than calling service osso-xterm02:02
Estel_I'm sure it's possible on more clean way. It's really nice to have this mem state on powerbutton, very handy. Would be even more, if showing only on flight mode. Many times, user forget to turn off-line before executing.02:03

*** user_ has joined #maemo02:08
DocScrutinizera) use sh -c "echo mem >/sys/power/state"02:09
DocScrutinizerb) call a script, and in there not only do "echo mem >/sys/power/state" but also switch to flight mode ;-)02:10

Estel_gals and guys, TMO seems to be almost unusable now, spam attack multiplied by huge magnitude. Please, vote for freemangordon's bug:
povbotBug 12425: is vulnerable to botnet attack02:44
Estel_no fuck, orly?02:44
Estel_joking, thats my dear bot. I would love if all bots would be like that...02:45

Estel_gooddamnit, I was admin of some small forum once, and experienced such an attack02:53
Estel_even using not-so-great phpbb, it was mather of modifing one file to prevent that.02:54
*** freemangordon__ has joined #maemo02:54
Estel_but, I don't know how it looks @ closed source vBulletin02:54
Estel_afaik SMF and phpbb got very simple and effective preventing mechanisms02:55
Estel_but if Reggie or whoever is not going to rise his ass and do something about it, we're going to feel like in Zion under attack ;)02:56
freemangordon__I don't believe the current infastructure don't have some defence agains spambot attack02:56
Estel_it have. Mail verification.02:56
Estel_The problem is that is non-effective.02:56
freemangordon__:D yep, where is Neo02:56
Estel_I don't have anything against Reggie,  but IMO really current model of "someone hosting TMO somewhere payed by some company" is a no-go02:58
Estel_ok I guess I'll move my ass and google for +vbulletin +spambot +protection02:58
Estel_freemangordon__,  could You please correct name of bug report?02:59
*** Estel_ has quit IRC02:59
freemangordon__Sure. What do you think it should be?02:59
DocScrutinizerI'm so happy I don't even notice any of that03:01
freemangordon__Lucky you :D03:01
*** Estel_ has joined #maemo03:03
Estel_sorry, battery run out :P03:04
Estel_even 3040 mAh end someday, so charging happily now...03:04
freemangordon__changed botnet to spambot in bug report name03:06
Estel_yea, saw that. Thanks.03:08
freemangordon__I need to take some rest, bb for now, hope someone with access to TMO will sort tinngs by tomorrow.03:10

psycho_oreostomreyn, yes there is. There was a tmo thread where people posted their hardware revisions. As for differences between each hardware revisions its not made public by nokia, so it pretty much leaves the curious ones to figure out what they really are.05:59
*** dockane__ has joined #maemo06:00
tomreynpsycho_oreos: thanks, i'll have a look for that thread later06:02
tomreynI'm just tring to browse the nokia fremantle APT repositories06:03
tomreynbut all i'm getting is 'access denied'06:03
*** dockane_ has quit IRC06:03
psycho_oreosthere's a few other threads where hardware revisions were posted, I'm assuming the flasher firmware blobs contains a list of known hardware revisions but they don't seem to be conclusive06:04
psycho_oreosyeah they do that to prevent people from browsing06:04
tomreyni guess i must be based on user agent06:05
psycho_oreosnot really, its based on something else06:05
tomreynsince i can't even seem to access the release file from my normal web browser06:05
tomreyncan't be much else really,06:06

*** astruasdh has joined #maemo06:06
astruasdhplease, guys... is it possible to isntall android in n900?06:06
psycho_oreosits called nitdroid, and they have their support channel in #nitdroid and #nitdroid-help06:07
pabs3tomreyn: what URL is the Release file at?06:07
tomreynbasically i'm just trying to learn whether there's something newer than the fremantle1.2 OVI repository.06:07
astruasdhty... but it ends in a stable system?06:07
psycho_oreosastruasdh, no, I doubt it. There's a wiki page on it telling you exactly what is supported and what is not06:08
*** DocScrutinizer has quit IRC06:08
psycho_oreostomreyn, I sort of doubt it, even if there is nokia may decide to make it obscure for one to access06:08
*** DocScrutinizer has joined #maemo06:08
tomreynpabs3: i don't know exactly how to map the apt sources entry to the release URL... I tried some, but noe worked. Here's what my nokia delivered sources.list entry says:06:08
tomreyndeb ./06:09
astruasdhI was looking for android in order to talk on the phone while connected to 3g without noise, and to get a better email client06:09
*** licensed has quit IRC06:09
tomreynpabs3: and i tried to access
tomreynoh, crap, it may be SSL client certificates06:10
psycho_oreosfor better email client, modest is getting fixed by the community, they have released their own set of service updates and called it CSSU06:10
*** jeverling has quit IRC06:10
*** kW has quit IRC06:10
astruasdhis it available at ovi repositories?06:11
psycho_oreosno.. there's wiki about it06:11
psycho_oreosCSSU has its own repository06:11
infobotextra, extra, read all about it, cssu is
*** jeverling has joined #maemo06:12
astruasdhis it possible to isntall meego or another os better than maemo?06:18
psycho_oreosyou can dualboot meego as that is the recommended option. meego is not fully stable so it is unwise to replace maemo with meego06:18
*** Gh0sty has quit IRC06:19
*** jeverling has quit IRC06:19
psycho_oreosand there's no other OS apart from maemo having a full and proper support of its hardware.06:19
astruasdhwhat do you think about meego? does it worth to dual boot?06:20
*** Gh0sty has joined #maemo06:20
*** javispedro has quit IRC06:20
*** psychologe has joined #maemo06:21
psycho_oreosI have yet to personally try meego. I said to them (#meego users/devs) that I would give meego a spin as soon as I purchased a spare N900 and 2x 32GB class 10 microSDHC cards. Well that time already came but I'm still fine tuning my maemo setup. It is probably worth dualbooting if you're keen on testing other OS on your tablet but its also recommended that you should be familiar with using linux.06:23
psychologehello ,,a question used add_remove_language command remove the system language.....i want save english only06:24
psycho_oreosthat's a really broken up English sentence there, no I don't really understand what you mean06:25
psycho_oreosyou can't easily add/remove languages, I believe ruskie on his about page on wiki has done a nasty hack to only have English as the language06:26
psychologesorry my bad english,,,i want remove othen system language.....06:27
psycho_oreosI believe what I said afterwards may help :)06:28
psychologethank you , i will search it06:28
astruasdhty :)06:29
psycho_oreosfyi, nitdroid and meego are inherently incompatible, they both provide their own set of bootloaders to work ontop of NOLO. You can install both but you will get a really messed up bootloader, if at worst you may end up bricking your device06:31
psychologei update enhanced busybox shell ,, when i use nmap in root response :route_dst: Failed to obtain system routes: Premature EOF in /proc/net/route....06:34
psycho_oreosI don't know if that's related to using enhanced busybox shell, it might be but for some reason I doubt it. Afterall the enhanced busybox doesn't provide nmap06:36
psychologeupdate busybox and install ssh server before.....nmap work fine   .. in user nmap can root not06:39
psycho_oreoshave you tried asking google with that query? notably pasting the error into google search?06:40
psychologeok , i will try it again...06:47
psycho_oreosaccording to search results they say that you do not have interface/network up06:48
psycho_oreosalso I have both busybox-power && ssh-status (which requires openssh-server installed) and have not experienced issue similar to yours06:50
*** Smily has quit IRC06:52
psychologei kown't why.....when i reboot ...i execute ifconfig .....interface list  not i execute "ifconfig wlan0 up"...but nmap resopnse same..06:53
psycho_oreoswlan0 up doesn't help nmap, nmap works on a different layer (in OSI terms). So you need to be associated/connected to a network first before you can use nmap06:54
psychologenmap can't work......06:54
psycho_oreos127.0.0.1 is lo not wlan006:54
psychologesome time ago,,,it 's ok06:55
psycho_oreosif anything its user error06:56
*** Hoolxi has joined #maemo06:56
psycho_oreosits got nothing to do with having busybox-power && openssh-server installed06:56
psychologethank you very much,,psycho_orers......i will study it,,,i am a linux newer06:56
psycho_oreospsychologe, ifconfig lo up && nmap -sT -vv

astruasdhI was reading meego website... it seems to have n900 support now. but meego is a beta os, isnt it?07:02
psycho_oreosmeego already have N900 support but not all features on meego will function on N900. If anything its similar to nitdroid on N900, the port is incomplete. meego is somewhat a beta OS but it doesn't target only one device (i.e. its not dedicated to just N900)07:04

DocScrutinizerhmm, I still fail to notice any noticeable spam attacks to tmo (not that I'd be too active on tmo, but even when looking for spam I can't see any)11:35

freemangordon__DocScrutinizer, because it is no more there ;)11:41
DocScrutinizerfreemangordon__: all this never could happen if tmo would've adopted my suggested cost-based posting scheme. Sth that limits noobs' quantity of allowed posts, based on their prev contributions and behaviour11:44
*** FireFly has joined #maemo11:45
DocScrutinizertmo became way too "cheap" for posting replies like "WUT?", and doing so at a freq of maybe 10 posts/min11:45
freemangordon__simple captcha for registration would do the job11:46
jacekowskisolve simple integral11:47
DocScrutinizeras soon as tmo users had to "pay" for each post (e.g. some "credits" from their account that only has a limited amount of credits per week), they would think twice before posting BS. If they could earn credits for further posts by gathering "thanks" they even more would worry about quality of their posts11:47
jacekowskiand i'm talking simple enough to be googled11:47

DocScrutinizernot though for the preemptive fix that's just reinforcing the USB's solder attachment to the PCB12:41
SpeedEvilA blob of epoxy on either side of the connector as a preemptive wouldn't be terrible either12:42
DocScrutinizer  -  pretty easy for anybody savvy to hold a soldering iron and actually do decent solder joints12:42
SpeedEvilThough not nearly as effective12:42
DocScrutinizerNEVER use epoxy12:42
DocScrutinizerat least not this way12:42
DocScrutinizerhere's why:
cehtehepoxy doesnt glue to the stop mask, neither to the plated metal12:44
cehtehit just soaks into the connector destroying it :P12:44
cehtehwhen there are no traces inside the board one could drill small holes and use epoxy with glas, kevlar or carbon strands to fix the connector, but i think the soldering is easier to do12:46

mecehmm tmo is really slow for me today. Anyone else having trouble?21:04
ale152I don't know how it works..21:04
Sc0rpiusyou could try that ale15221:05
Sc0rpiusor compile it yourself21:05
ale152I have not enough space on my disk to install the maemo sdk...21:06
Sc0rpiusdelete some of the porn you already watched :P21:06
Sc0rpiusI run the SDK in a 10 GB Ubuntu VM21:07
Sc0rpiusyou don't need that much21:07

ErwinJungeIf you're on a very old pc running a VM probably isn't a good idea :)21:10
ale152how can I install "make" on my n900?21:11
ErwinJungeI don't have time to do this at the moment, but am willing to look into it for you later. Provided it only takes typing "./configure; make", no time to port stuff now.21:11
*** Zahra has quit IRC21:11
ale152thank you :D21:12
ErwinJungeale152: Installing a complete development environment on the device is not recommended (and quite complicated)21:12
ale152it's a command line app, so it only need configure-make :D21:12
ale152i already did it some time ago, and it worked21:12
ErwinJungeNot neccesarily true, but I'll give it a try.21:12
ale152but i remember i had a lot of problem with free root space21:12

ale152a maemo forum user had it working with my camera, but he shared only gphoto2 package and forget the libgphoto2 package :(21:14
ErwinJungeSo you just want libgphoto2?21:14
ale152i don't know if the gphoto2 he uploaded is the last version..21:15
ErwinJungeDownloading latest version now. Btw, bugging the maintainer on the repos is also a good idea so that other people can also benefit from this.21:16

*** geaaru has quit IRC23:14
valdynsmhar: thing is that whatsapp matches contacts to phone numbers. There's nothing like that in maemo.23:14
valdynsmhar: and the only service that does the same might be bbm23:14
smharwhat is bbm?23:14
valdynsmhar: blackberry messenger23:15
valdynsmhar: both work like sms but via internet so are cheaper on contracts that include internet23:15
smharI used neither, I am happy with skype, but I can not talk with myself, I need something that the others will use :-)23:16

javispedrobased on total ignorance23:33
valdynjavispedro: sure23:33
javispedro"it's sms except you don't pay" so I point them to search for google talk on the app store, make them download the first app23:34

javispedronoone knows exactly why, but it just starts to get used.23:36
javispedro(well, during msn days you could argue it had something to do with being included in win98..)23:36

*** nid0 has quit IRC23:41
reprI see it the other way around: as it doesn't change anything, as people who use a different IM will keep using it, it could just make our lives easier to send messages to iUsers23:41

repryes, you'd not try to convince others, but for the average user, you'd not succeed either23:42
