IRC log of #maemo for Sunday, 2011-10-23

*** gri is now known as zz_gri00:01
HRH_H_Crabi actually have a real hankering for a phone with a dab receiver.00:01
HRH_H_Crabi believe the n9 has some funky headphones that can do that.00:01
HRH_H_Crabmaybe ill just get an n9 and use an ssh client.00:02
psycho_oreosopenmoko is now community supported (manufacturer-less backing) like maemo and very soon meego. nokia and intel dropped support for meego community. hp dropped webos as it could not see a future. There's now a running rumour of nokia mulling over maltemi. google is still dogging with android as well as IP lawsuits from apple but still has a linux kernel in each of the android powered devices. samsung couldn't see much fun with pure linux or pure bsd so th00:03
psycho_oreosey created bada ages ago which is fairly niche just like maemo. Any other alternatives?00:03
wmaroneTizen, oddly00:04
psycho_oreosahh yes Tizen the much updated rumour00:04
HRH_H_Crabwhat is bada?00:04
wmaronerasterman lends it some credibility :)00:05
HRH_H_Crabis it linux with some stuff on top?00:05
psycho_oreosoh I also forgot there was also moblin for instance00:05
psycho_oreosbut moblin is just as niche really00:05
psycho_oreosthere's a wikipage for bada00:06

psycho_oreosARM platform seems to be a little overrated these days, MIPS at one stage was about to jump onto the bandwagon of smartphone market and really if MIPS for example did jump on, maybe the market could be a little more interesting00:08
wmaronemips is there, just on the baseband side of things00:09
*** kW_ has quit IRC00:10
psycho_oreosI'm already quite surprised the router these days probably packs enough punch to almost be capable of taking on against ARM. The 2 Netgear WNDR3700v2 I bought the other day features Atheros MIPS processor at 600+MHz which needless to say may be just as powerful if not more than my N90000:10
wmaronethe catch being that it doesn't have the power management that ARM does00:11
wmaronealso, good choice in router00:12
wmaroneOpenWRT I presume?00:12
psycho_oreosI haven't read that much further in detail about MIPS but I'm sure if they stepped in and improved their flaws (such as what you highlighted in power management) then yes a competition against the overrated ARM would be gladly welcomed imo00:12
psycho_oreosor DD-WRT/Tomato00:12
psycho_oreoshey, its still linux powered. Or would you like a dose of windows powered router? ;)00:13
wmaroneheh, I used dd-wrt on my buffalo until the radio died00:14
*** geaaru has joined #maemo00:14
wmaroneopenwrt is, imo, much nicer00:14
psycho_oreosor even one of those crappy OS that sits on top of TrendChip now powering a few routers which doesn't have any linux backing?00:14
psycho_oreosthe two WNDR3700v2 I bought the other day has old OpenWRT installed, so if I do a bit of hardware modding and what not I'll be happy to walk away with a nice powerful MIPS router00:15
*** vdv has quit IRC00:15
wmaronehardware modding?00:16
psycho_oreosand that reminds me to get rid of this stupid setup on huawei D10000:16
*** NIN101 has joined #maemo00:16
psycho_oreosyeah hardware modding, with WNDR3700 you can upgrade the RAM and add external antennas00:16
psycho_oreosexternal antenna modding isn't particularly interesting neither is it new but then again00:17
psycho_oreosand wndr3800 has the cool bits that wndr3700 owners wished to have minus the potential backing of openwrt just now00:18
wmaronesaw it the other day00:18
wmarone128MB of flash, 128MB of ram00:18
*** eijk has quit IRC00:18
psycho_oreosapparently it still has 16MB of flash, though RAM is upgraded to yeah 128MB, double the size on wndr3700v2 and quadruple the size on wndr370000:18
wmaronethe ram upgrade is tempting00:18
wmaronethe 3700 and 3700v2 have the same amount of RAM00:19
wmaronethe v2 has 2x the flash though00:19
* wmarone has his unit booting from a USB hard drive instead00:20
HRH_H_Crabi need to buy a new router / fwall soon.00:20
psycho_oreosto find the right RAM chip is really hard, yesterday (in my timezone) I asked DocScrutinizer for some electronics suppliers and I found one00:20
HRH_H_Crabgonna use an alix based system i think00:20
HRH_H_Crabi dont need wifi.00:20
HRH_H_Crabprob. put debian on it.00:20
psycho_oreosmy bad, wmarone yes, both WNDR3700v1 and WNDR3700v2 has the same amount of RAM, 64MB which is half of that compared to WNDR380000:21
wmaronebaffled me when I saw it on the package00:21
wmaronenever thought I'd see a router vendor list the cpu, ram, and flash specs of the device00:22
psycho_oreosI never seen the v1 package but when I was at the shop scrutinising over the v2 (because the openwrt wiki has been updated to include v3 almost a month ago before I last visited) just to make sure that I hand over my cold hard cash for atheros based not a broadcrap based00:23
psycho_oreosthat also reminds me that I should take a photograph of the v2 box, add detail to my blog and maybe update openwrt wiki, at least its noted the v3 variant does not have 16MB flash00:24
psycho_oreosHRH_H_Crab, sheevaplug ftw ;)00:25
HRH_H_Crabi want 3 nics. :|00:25
HRH_H_Craband ive heard that all those plug things have really bad heating issues.00:25
psycho_oreoswhy 3? going to turn a computer into a router?00:25
HRH_H_Crabwan / lan / dmz00:25
HRH_H_Crabim using an old mac atm.00:26
*** lardman has quit IRC00:26
HRH_H_Crabgoing to replace it with an alix.00:26
*** npm_ has joined #maemo00:26
HRH_H_Crabwill be a lot smaller.00:26
psycho_oreosapparently that happens with the guru plug, well the power version of guru plug whatever its called.. then again it isn't hard to cut venting holes either :D00:26
HRH_H_Craband use less juice.00:26
*** npm has quit IRC00:26
psycho_oreosheh I've turned one of my desktop into a router before, running ipcop it was a beast of a machine but too bad ipcop's addon support was really fragile00:27
psycho_oreosspeaking of overheating issue or issues with the embedded device, I'd steer clear of huawei D100, I have one and it is problematic at times.. so much so that it makes me want to hack it and install openwrt on it, add cooling fins and more cooling vents00:28

hakkattakkHi! Is there anyway to catagorize the volume on n900? Like 50% with headphones in SomePlayer and 20% with headphones if anyone call? I have changed the EQ so I have to raise the volume, and if anyone call me I think it may hurt my ears.00:58
hakkattakkor if I get a new email/low battery etc. Like system volume00:59

DocScrutinizerpsycho_oreos: well, it was fun to have the N950 with me at chaos camp04:20
DocScrutinizertriggered all kinds of unusual behaviour, and earned me some drinks04:22
psycho_oreosDocScrutinizer, heh I don't mean that it isn't fun to carry your N950 around, I meant in the more of the general context as in using your N950 everyday such as commuting to and from work, going to various places with it every day every week04:22
psycho_oreosit carries a bit of risk though04:22
DocScrutinizerhmm, yeah04:22
*** ferdna has joined #maemo04:23
psycho_oreosI'm sure any happy N950 owner in the first few days would be a little paranoid but then would ease up and may want to flirt around with a rare toy, but really that's kinda like holding a lollipop and wondering around waiting for it to catch more attention04:24
DocScrutinizeresp when taking into account the equation sb did here some monzhs ago which was like $NOKIA_R&D_FOR_MAEMO/MEEGO  / $NUMBER_OF_N950_IN_THE_WILD = 3.6 mio USD per device04:24
doc|homethen they put a bullet in the head of the entire thing :/04:25
psycho_oreosyou can thank Elop for all that04:25
doc|homeI'll be anti-thanking him by not buying another nokia, does that count? :)04:26
psycho_oreosfirst it was a very nice ad of N950, then it becomes unavailable and whilst its unavailable the specs are crippled. Then it becomes developer only device04:26
psycho_oreospartially imo ;) I'd also tell people to avoid nokia after N904:26
psycho_oreosremember the simple analogy to businesses that one bad customer brings 10 bad customers04:27
psycho_oreosthat'll be sure to cut some wounds into them04:27
doc|homeI wouldn't even bother with the n9. It's a really nice looking phone, but still-born if the platform's going nowhere :/04:28
DocScrutinizeraegis made it not even breathe at birth04:28
psycho_oreosI'll admit that N9 is a still-born platform but with maemo's premature death there aren't many alternatives apart from one switching across to a completely different platform04:29
DocScrutinizerstick with maemo04:29
*** LaoLang_cool has quit IRC04:29
psycho_oreosI mean what else can one look at? android? moblin? bada? etc?04:29
psycho_oreosmaemo won't last around forever :)04:29
doc|homemoblin was merged into meego, meego's now dead. Bada's way off from being a competitor. So I'm keeping an eye on android :/04:30
DocScrutinizerFeb. 1104:30
psycho_oreosoh yeah I forgot about tizen and openmoko too04:31
doc|homeDocScrutinizer: it's now oct, and noticeable advancement since then?04:31
doc|homeopenmoko's dead04:31
psycho_oreosits still in the wraps with that samsung linux.. I won't hold hopes over vapourware imo.. but N9 is an end product, meaning that its not a vapourware.. its already out04:32
DocScrutinizerI never planned to get any new phone/OS during the next ~5 years, so I'm sticking with maemo and for lack of new hw with N900, and with CSSU. And I'll keep an eye on what raster eventually might come up with04:32
psycho_oreosopenmoko is dead manufacturer wise :)04:32
doc|homes/and noticeable/any noticeable04:32
doc|homepsycho_oreos: you're trying to say it was strong in software? :)04:33
DocScrutinizertizen is BS, OM is dead04:33
doc|homebada could be interesting, but until it's actually a competitor with a top tier phone I'm meh about it. No interest in dumb phones.04:34
psycho_oreosdoc|home, I'm saying that it still probably is strong in software and some minor closed group hardware developments. Though however its unfortunate that openmoko is mostly dead otherwise04:34
doc|homepsycho_oreos: it was never really strong in software04:34
DocScrutinizerOM-the-community/SHR might come up with semi-mature "anti-vendor-ports" for a fistful of devices04:34
DocScrutinizerbada is BS, even more than sybian or tizen04:35
doc|homedepends on how bent out of shape motorgoogle gets samsung04:35
psycho_oreosdoc|home, hey well I don't know what openmoko is really like but I'm sure its probably as highly configurable (more than maemo) right? and maybe a lot better hardware access compared to android platform04:35
psycho_oreosspeaking of which someone linked a mailing list of alternatives to booting up dalvik vm with android devices04:36
DocScrutinizeropenmoko doesn't sell any hw04:36
doc|homepsycho_oreos: I have a freerunner doing paperweight duties on my desk. I tried to like/use it but it just wasn't reliable enough to be usable. In the end I switched phone company who had hspa as soon as the n900 came out and that was the end of that04:36
psycho_oreosthe stuff is in alpha stage04:37

psycho_oreosnot sure if openmoko did sell it but I do remember they organised group purchases for freerunner.04:39
psycho_oreosDocScrutinizer, which the dalvik vm alternative or openmoko stuff?04:39
DocScrutinizerthere's goldelico startting to sell gta04 in a Openmoko case, that's however not anything gaining traction of any degree, any time04:39

DocScrutinizerno, as the device doesn't charge15:35
DocScrutinizerhe needs a bat that allows reflash15:36
chem|stah ok15:36
chem|stah the bricked OS we have too?!15:36
DocScrutinizerbut anyway a voltmeter is mandatory15:36
DocScrutinizerTiagoTiago: you *could* gamble and simply charge the battery until it cuts out on overvoltage via protective circuitry, or gets hot. I *STRONGLY* discourage you from doing so15:38
ShadowJKI've accidentally triggered those circuits, and they're not so good. It had no hysteresis, constantly switching on/off and getting warm15:39
DocScrutinizerTiagoTiago: come back when you got the charger, the wires, and a *voltmeter*, and we'll talk you thru the process15:39
TiagoTiagoNo way to use the flasher to tell it to bypass the battery and get the energy straigjht out of the usb plug?15:40
DocScrutinizerif you really want to do that. I still think it's a way better idea to find a compatible charger device (aka Nokia phone) and charge your cell with that15:40
ShadowJKvoltmeters can be found in generic hardware and DIY home improvement stores here, as well as in big supermarkets15:40
ShadowJKTiagoTiago; do you have uboot or meego installed?15:41
DocScrutinizerTiagoTiago: we told you several times now thare's evidently no way out of your situation other than alien charging15:41
TiagoTiagoShadowJK: just Maemo15:42
DocScrutinizer(well, except coldflash rescue OS, aka rescue-initrd or meego or NIIN101's thing)15:42
DocScrutinizerand I honestly doubt you'll succeed to get that working15:43
DocScrutinizerplease check and call all your friends if one of then has any of those compatible devices to charge your cell15:45
TiagoTiagoWould it be safe to try to charge the battery from a device that isn't compatible, by conecting the contacts with some wires?15:45
TiagoTiagoLike a N73 or a 3650?15:45
DocScrutinizerusually yes, but most devices will not work15:46
ShadowJKI'm pretty sure I could get wires connected to battery without any of them touching eachother, but not so sure about getting them attached to phone15:46
*** radiofree has joined #maemo15:47
TiagoTiagoI could probably tape them against the contacts15:47
DocScrutinizer  those devices use bp-4l battery (like N810) and are known to charge the bl-5j if you just push the battery to the contacts (it won't fit nicely into the battery bay so you have to push rather hard, but contacts are compatible)15:48
TiagoTiagoDo i have to worry about the thickness of the wires or any will do?15:48
TiagoTiagoI only got a N73 and a 365015:49
ShadowJKI wouldn't worry about thickness15:49
ShadowJKunless you're making them really really long15:49
TiagoTiagothe N73 uses BP-6M batteries, i have to go find where i stuck the 3650 though, i don't think it got unpacked yet after i moved15:51
DocScrutinizeranyway charging with a $RANDOM device by attaching the wires to the battery and device's battery cotacts probably is the worst idea of all15:51
ShadowJKit's probably less dangerous than attaching random powersupply with wires15:52
TiagoTiagoI thought it would be safer than trying to jerryrig a old charger straight into the battery15:52
woldrichTiagoTiago, I was in the same situation myself. Stupid, stupid15:52
DocScrutinizeryou're risking to destroy the abused device, and success is not exactly guaranteed either, as all those devices use some 3rd contact to monitor battery and that usually isn't really compatible15:52
TiagoTiagoi see15:53
DocScrutinizerShadowJK: random charger yes, bad idea. Nokia barrel connector wallwart charger: reasonably safe15:53
ShadowJKAnd if you put a nokia phone in between nokia barrel psu and battery...15:54
DocScrutinizerNokia specs for all their wallwart chargers with barrel connector was such that phone can PWM connect it directly to battery15:54
DocScrutinizercurrent limiting done inside wallwart15:55

DocScrutinizerthat's btw where the term "fastcharger" originates from, I guess. As 'old' Nokia phones never used continuous CC/CV charging, but rather charged PWM (0.5..2Hz) and the CC been delivered by the charger. So a "fastcharger" with 800mA rated output actually chaged faster than one with 550mA rated output16:07

DocScrutinizercut them off and use the bare wire ends :-P16:10
DocScrutinizerwill work just fine to touch the battery contacts16:11

ErwinJungeI noticed that the scratchbox repository also has scratchbox-toolchain-cs2009q3-*, while I'm installing scratchbox-toolchain-cs2007q3-* now. Going from a "newer must equal better" viewpoint, is it possible/advisable to switch to 2009q3?16:24
DocScrutinizerTiagoTiago: or you even may try reflashing when your battery is at ~3.9V (3.87 actually). It might just suffice to do a normal flashing16:24
DocScrutinizerbut I guess the voltage will drop to 3.6 or 3.5 as soon as you insert the battery to N900 and boot up the device16:25

TiagoTiagohow can i check if it's toasted?16:36
*** LaoLang_cool has quit IRC16:37
DocScrutinizerbasically not at all, in practice check the voltage of the battery, with CORRECT RANGE SET i.e. 20V DC!16:37
TiagoTiagoi would expect it would use separate circuits for the voltimeter and the amperimeter16:38
javispedroErwinJunge: what you can do btw is upgrade to a new version of the same toolchain, these are also available some times.16:38
DocScrutinizer(or 10V or 40, or whatever your DMM offers)16:38
DocScrutinizerTiagoTiago: (separate circuits) possible, but not guaranteed16:39

DocScrutinizerthere's even a small chance it's still OK or just blew a fuse16:39

TiagoTiagoit says it can handle at most 200mA16:40
TiagoTiagofor the battery that is16:40
DocScrutinizerso what's happening if you try to flash with this battery? I.E. will the USB icon stay on NOKIA screen when you hold "u" while plugging in wallcharger?16:40
TiagoTiagocan i trust the charger if it's putting out 19volts in AC?16:41
DocScrutinizeris it a Nokia wallwart charger with a barel connector?16:41
TiagoTiagoi could get it to go into,a nd then ouyt of RD mode,  haven't tried flashing yet, i was hoping there would be a solution without involving me having to reinstall pretty much everything16:41
TiagoTiagoit was, now it got a red and a black wire sticking out16:42
DocScrutinizerthen it's OK for charging, but when you get the USB logo steady then the battery is OK for flashing16:42
DocScrutinizerno need to charge it16:42
DocScrutinizerand no, there's no way out of bootloop other than R&D mode and reflashing16:43
DocScrutinizernot if you don't have a clue what's wrong with your system16:43
TiagoTiagoI've had way too many sleepless nights latelly, i would rather not have to spend yet another few days burning at both ends to get things back to a reasonable level :(16:44
DocScrutinizerseems your "reasonable level" caused a bootloop anyway16:44
TiagoTiagoOne thing i would try if i could get access to the files would be to replace the transitions and leds files back to default16:44
ErwinJungejavispedro: How would I recognize the difference between a new version of the same toolchain and a different toolchain?16:44
