IRC log of #maemo for Thursday, 2013-08-22

WizardNumberNextgot most00:01
WizardNumberNextof what I had previously00:01
DocScrutinizer05anyway if you *really want to mess with HAM and apt catalogs/repos on file level, this is what you're looking for:   and
DocScrutinizer05everything else apt reöated gets overwritten by HAM eventually00:04
*** brzys has quit IRC00:05
DocScrutinizer05or is ignored by HAM but not by fapman and apt-get, which makes for rather confusing behaviour that nobody really appreciates00:05
*** brzys has joined #maemo00:05
WizardNumberNextham is fine for as long as it installs what I want to install, otherwise I use apt00:06
DocScrutinizer05the orthodox way to get catalogs installed is to click on following link (or similar links to other .install files), on N900 in microB or xchat:
infobotit has been said that jrtools is
DocScrutinizer05  actually00:08
WizardNumberNextok I have kp52. Is it fine to install cssu-thumb?00:09
DocScrutinizer05nothing wrong with using apt in general, you just should know which commands you *never* must use (unless you know *extremely* good what you're doing): apt-get upgrade and any form of autoremove (and probably also -f)00:09
DocScrutinizer05WizardNumberNext: for cssu-thunmb you first want to install cssu00:10
WizardNumberNextI avoid doing anything fancy with aprt00:10
infobotmethinks cssu is
WizardNumberNextyeah I am definitely not going straight to thumb00:10
WizardNumberNextfirst testing00:10
DocScrutinizer05cssu-thumb basing on cssu as cssu bases on fremantle00:11
DocScrutinizer05think of e.g. pacman repositories for opensuse: they are not a replacement but an auxiliary supplementary repo that needs the base installation repo underneath00:12
raccoon_hey, what's the etymology behind the name choice "thumb"?00:12
DocScrutinizer05ask ARM00:12
* DocScrutinizer05 shouts "OUCH" each time he hears "thumbnailer"00:13

*** jon_y has quit IRC03:25
DocScrutinizer05some weirdos (actually punks) explained to their friend that he needs a properly made earring piercing. They placed him on a wooden table with his ear on the table, used a nail and a hammer and pierced the ear ;-P...03:26
DocScrutinizer05then they said "duh, don't meove, while we go searching for a pliers to pull the nail out of the table"03:27
DocScrutinizer05punk pranks03:28

DocScrutinizer05benedikt: only the nokia repos. Those don't have any updates you would want to install anyway. and the expired key is only causing a Warning afaik, you can simply ignore it. If it actually causes problems, I heard you can simply change the date on your N900 to something in 201104:29
*** sid_blub_ has joined #maemo04:30
DocScrutinizer05int_ua: that's caused by high load on www VM that also hosts which serves the css and other static stuff for wiki, bugs, whatnot else04:30
DocScrutinizer05and using https probably doesn't help on that ;-)04:31

benediktDocScrutinizer05: who controls the maemo images these days?16:06
*** dos1 has quit IRC16:06
DocScrutinizer05what exactly do you refer to?16:10

*** frafl has joined #maemo16:11

*** frafl has quit IRC16:11
DocScrutinizer05hah, that's actually us16:11
*** valerius has joined #maemo16:12
DocScrutinizer05to control them16:12
*** frafl has joined #maemo16:12
benediktthat way you could at least get new devices to automatically pull from repos you control yourselves.. but thats not a lot..16:12
DocScrutinizer05yes, feasible16:12
*** unclouded has joined #maemo16:12
benediktmight even be possible to push a packages to -extras that updates the sources.list..16:13
DocScrutinizer05we pondered that. It seems there's not a singe package in extras that everybody has installed16:13
benediktwell. thats a shame.16:14
DocScrutinizer05btw, benedikt: you should NOT use sources.list for anything16:16
benediktDocScrutinizer05: i know. ive used debian for more than a decade, it's just simpler to refer to it as sources.list than the full pathname16:16
DocScrutinizer05[2013-08-21 23:03:26] <DocScrutinizer05> anyway if you *really want to mess with HAM and apt catalogs/repos on file level, this is what you're looking for:   and
DocScrutinizer05[2013-08-21 23:04:11] <DocScrutinizer05> everything else apt reöated gets overwritten by HAM eventually16:17
benediktseems like a good reason to uninstall the application manager then16:18
DocScrutinizer05[2013-08-21 23:05:12] <DocScrutinizer05> or is ignored by HAM but not by fapman and apt-get, which makes for rather confusing behaviour that nobody really appreciates16:18
kerioDocScrutinizer05: nah, sources.list proper gets used by HAM and not modified16:19
benediktkerio: cool, noted.16:19
kerioHAM's .list file obviously gets overwritten at least on every catalog modification16:19
DocScrutinizer05but also not displayed in "catalogs" I guess16:19
kerioif not every time HAM starts16:19
keriothey're also displayed in catalogs16:19
*** andre__ has joined #maemo16:20
DocScrutinizer05still it's nonsensical to edit it, since otherwise why is mine 0 bytes?16:20
DocScrutinizer05it's kinda like editing resolv.conf16:21
*** zeq has joined #maemo16:22
DocScrutinizer05resolv.conf has and nuttin else, per definition. and sources.list is empty, per definition16:22
*** konelix has quit IRC16:23
DocScrutinizer05benedikt: I don't think uninstalling HAM is a great idea16:25
DocScrutinizer05it won't instantly bring the system down, but for sure you're begging for trouble when you do16:26
DocScrutinizer05benedikt: and since we're already close to that topic: please note that apt-get upgrade and particularly apt-get dist-upgrade and autoremove, and prolly even -f sometimes, are extremely dangerous and deprecated, since they all tend to fubar your maemo system16:29
DocScrutinizer05maemo is not a plain debian when it comes to apt, repos, packaging16:30
DocScrutinizer05that's why you want to keep HAM16:30
DocScrutinizer05for quite a few things Nokia invented very own concepts orthogonal to standard linux resp debian16:32
DocScrutinizer05other stuff they implemented their own personal flavour of some functions that later on got also into upstream linux but implemented differently. See sudoers and update-sudoers and include directive16:34
DocScrutinizer05duh, that would make for a very nice CSSU project: get a newer sudo that knows about "include <dir>"16:36
DocScrutinizer05nuke update-sudoers16:36
DocScrutinizer05ooh, benedikt: without HAM no proper installing or updating of any CSSU16:38
*** konelix has joined #maemo16:39
DocScrutinizer05nothing wrong with using apt-get install for getting new packages, but *updates* you should leave to HAM and possibly auto-update16:40
*** jon_y has joined #maemo16:40
infoboti guess cssu is
DocScrutinizer05I strongly suggest *stable16:40
benediktdidnt know that. might be why i broke maemo last time16:40
*** FIQ has joined #maemo16:41
DocScrutinizer05yes, ignoring those idiosyncrasies of maemo is a too easy way to mess stuff up16:41
DocScrutinizer05actually you shouldn't even do updates with HAM as long as extras-devel (or -testing) is enabled16:42
jon_yuse apt?16:43
DocScrutinizer05not all packages that would get updated to latest version in extras-devel are safe. every now and then we see a really rogue one in there16:43
benediktwait what16:44
benediktjust befor you said i should only update with HAM,16:44
DocScrutinizer05jon_y: nah, cherrypick package by package. Then it doesn't matter if you use apt-get install or HAM16:44
benediktif i have extras-devel and/or -testing, should i update with apt-get or HAM? what if i have either of those?16:45
DocScrutinizer05but a apt-get upgrade or "install/update all" in HAM is most likely fatal when extras-devel is enabled, sooner or later16:45
DocScrutinizer05having both extras-devel and extras-testing doesn't really make any sense16:46
DocScrutinizer05since all packages in testing went through devel16:46
DocScrutinizer05a package goes extras-devel -> extras-testing -> extras16:47
DocScrutinizer05extras is considered "safe"16:48
*** sunny_s has quit IRC16:48
DocScrutinizer05testing basically only for *real* testers who want to help evaluating the packages and make them go to extras or reject them due to flaws they have16:49
DocScrutinizer05devel is bleeding edge that's not tested at all, rogue or dangerous or fubar stuff *will* be there16:49
DocScrutinizer05amog pretty stable other packages that simply never got promoted to extras16:50
benediktright, but how does one update safely?16:51
benediktwasnt sure if packages went first to -devel or -testing16:51
DocScrutinizer05you simply do update via HAM with extras-testing and exzras-devel repo disbaled16:51
DocScrutinizer05for -testing and -devel you do cherrypicking for the one or two ;) packages you got from there, after you checked the changelog and supplementary info about the new version of that package16:52
DocScrutinizer05it is cumbersome, but then extras-devel never been meant for general usage16:53
DocScrutinizer05recently somebody uploaded some X11 related package to extras-devel that broke the whole system16:54
DocScrutinizer05aiui every user would have installed it as soon as you do upgrade on extras-devel via apt or HAM16:55
DocScrutinizer05libc6 eventually appeared on extras-devel16:56
DocScrutinizer05incompatible broken qt versions appeared on extras-devel16:56
DocScrutinizer05using extras-devel like a normal repo is a warranty for doom, if not today then maybe next month16:57
DocScrutinizer05you enable extras-devel, install (or update) your package(s) you're interested in, and immediately disable the catalog again16:58
*** valerius has quit IRC16:58
*** CcxN has quit IRC16:59
benediktDocScrutinizer05: yeah, that sounds like the safe way to do it17:00
*** dos1 has joined #maemo17:01
DocScrutinizer05the added benefit: HAM is much less slow as long as extras-devel (and -testing) are disabled17:05

*** frafl has quit IRC17:11
DocScrutinizer05for the boot messages you need a kernel supporting that17:12
korhojoapower-kernel should be able?17:13
DocScrutinizer05I thik so17:13
benedikti want to use LUKS soon, i suppose that requires another kernel anyways17:13

benediktunfortunately, the url the youtube video gives is dead17:14

DocScrutinizer05but version string of KP is sth like 52, no?18:20
Paliso I added epoch to deb package like in other similar problems in debian18:20
DocScrutinizer05alas maemo ignores epoch, at best18:20
Paliit has suffix 5218:21 infra, that is18:21
kerioDocScrutinizer05: 1:2.6.28-10power5218:21
keriothere's already an epoch there18:22
DocScrutinizer05yes I know there's an epoch now, I asked WHY18:22
DocScrutinizer05of course when you break versioning sheme like 2.6.28power49 -> 2.6.28-10power52, that can not work18:23
benediktis there a way to run the UI as some other user than "user"?18:24

benediktDocScrutinizer05: was it only extras-devel that you should disable between uses or should i do that with -testing as well?18:25
DocScrutinizer05you probably don't want testing at all18:25
benediktit had a bunch of packages i wanted..18:26
DocScrutinizer05it's redundant for regular users, when they use -devel anyway18:26
benedikti was trying to stay away from -devel18:26
DocScrutinizer05well, then you probably can use testing as a halfway-to-"safe" replacement for -devel18:27
PaliDocScrutinizer05: yes this was reason: I wanted to have kernel version same as package version18:27
DocScrutinizer05again, every package goes extras-devel -> extras-testing -> extras18:27

*** M4rtinK has quit IRC18:28
DocScrutinizer05Pali: anyway a better versioning for KP probably is 52power2.6.28-1018:28

PaliI mean in package interface18:31
DocScrutinizer05epoch gets ignored completely18:31
DocScrutinizer05on maemo.org18:32
Paliok, so if I put new version (with epoch) will it be imported to package interface?18:32
DocScrutinizer05you could use 1:52power2.6.28-1018:32
DocScrutinizer05afaik simply does a s/[0-0]:// on _some_ locations18:33
DocScrutinizer05afaik simply does a s/[0-9]:// on _some_ locations18:33
DocScrutinizer05so make sure your versioning isn't violating epoch rules (for apt's sake) while your version string *without epoch* should still be strictly monotonically growing18:35
DocScrutinizer05and if you can avoid by any means, do not use epoch at all18:35
DocScrutinizer05for now, according to freemangordon, our policy is: NO changes in epoch!18:36
*** NIN101 has joined #maemo18:36

DocScrutinizer05or let me put it this way: you (and everybody interested) are free to port incl all the funny custom made scripts to some CMS that's still supported, like e.g. midgard2, and for sure during such migration effort we could fix epoch issue en passant18:51
keriobut write it somewhere, or devs might expect to be able to do that18:51
*** amizraa has joined #maemo18:52
DocScrutinizer05yep, agreed18:52
*** shentey has quit IRC18:52
*** shentey has joined #maemo18:53
DocScrutinizer05we removed the hack xfade implemented to allow pali to upload and promote his KP with epoch. Now it's back to the state where completely ignores epoch (aiui, ask fmg) and thus somebody uploading a package with epoch will notice soon enough that it doesn't promote and thus will come here to ask what's wrong18:53
DocScrutinizer05but nonetheless I agree we should publish an according note that epoch should not get used to increment version18:55
DocScrutinizer05since maemo doesn't watch for changes in epoch18:55
DocScrutinizer05and when you can't change epoch (also not from non-using to using it), then it's useless anyway18:57
DocScrutinizer05get your versioning sorted then you don't need to resort to epoch ;-)18:57
