DocScrutinizer05sunshavi: why don't you use the UI for all that?00:07
DocScrutinizer05>>have a cron changing the sound before the alarm fires<< is so terribly wrong, it's not how maemo works00:08

WikiwideVroom... Moving files out of DCIM into subfolders. So far, the record is 150 photographs taken during a single day.12:36
WikiwideI still don't see how tracker finds 8k files. I see 0.5k music files, which is believable (should clean up some recordings), 2.5k photographs (I don't ever delete them), 4k Files (what's that?), 1k Other, and a few Texts (not much).13:00
*** Trizt has quit IRC13:02
WikiwideI think that only half of 2.5k images are in DCIM, by now.13:02
*** Trizt has joined #maemo13:02
*** florian_kc has joined #maemo13:03
KotCzarnyi admire your hobby13:06
*** florian_kc has quit IRC13:09
WikiwideThank you :-)13:13
MaxdamantusThough I don't think the slowness has terribly much to do with tracker, since I don't run trackerd and I still had that issue with a large DCIM directory.13:14
MaxdamantusI think it's just camera-ui .. stracing camera-ui indicates that it's a horribly obnoxious program WRT file accesses.13:14
WikiwideBut moving files out of DCIM and into DCIM subfolders helps, right?13:15
MaxdamantusDunno about DCIM subfolders. I moved them out into a separate directory.13:15
WikiwideCamera probably checks which file names are and aren't taken?13:15
Maxdamantusso instead of /media/sd/DCIM/, they're in /media/sd/cam/201711/13:15
WikiwideEither way, camera-ui is open-source, so it's possible to read what's happening, and maybe even fix it.13:16
WikiwideHmm, interesting, about separate directory...13:16
MaxdamantusWhen holding the focus button, camera-ui keeps on loading a bunch of image files from the filesystem, and scanning /dev for some reason, and doing a bunch of other stupid crap.13:18
WikiwideNo idea about dev, but it has to figure out _xxn suffix somehow?13:19
MaxdamantusThis is what happens when you just press the focus button once:
MaxdamantusIf you hold it down, it keeps basically doing the same shit over and over again as it updates the colour of the square in the centre of the screen.13:20
Maxdamantusand every time you do anything in the UI, it does the same stuff.13:20
Maxdamantus(that's just `strace -e file`; I don't know how much useless stuff it's doing on top of opening a bunch of files)13:21
WikiwideMime, hicolor, localtime, icons...13:22
WikiwideI photograph bikes, insects, plants, birds, museum, robots, sky...13:37
KotCzarnyand you are satisfied wirh n900 canera quality?13:38
WikiwideYes. Not always, but sometimes photographs are stunning. Focus and colour are important.13:39
WikiwideDeliberation, Determination, Destination ...13:39
MaxdamantusIt doesn't seem to scan through all potential filenames when saving. It just reads the gconf thing, /apps/camera/settings/basic-settings/last-media-id13:40
WikiwideBut why does it get slow when DCIM is huge?13:41
MaxdamantusI don't know.13:41
KotCzarnylow mem?13:41
KotCzarnylots of disk access?13:41
WikiwideSveta recommends some of my photographs (of flowers, especially) as wallpapers for PC13:42
KotCzarnyrun iostat -k 1 and check what happens when you open it13:42
WikiwideWhat does it do?13:42
KotCzarnyprints how much it reads/writes13:42
Wikiwideiostat not found13:44
KotCzarnymight be in sysstat package13:44
*** pkill9 has joined #maemo13:52
DocScrutinizer05yoiu know why ~user/ (/home) is 2GB? It's considered just enough to keep tracker's database ;-)  IOW check your tracker config, try to keep as much as possible hidden from tracker's indexing14:34
