fosstuxHi! I've subscribed to mer-general a few days ago - now I'd like to unsubscribe because I've sold my n900. But when sending an email to, I get a mail back, that I'm not subscribed to the list mer-general...07:31
fosstuxWhat am I doing wrong?07:31
Stskeepsfosstux: how did you subscribe?07:31
fosstuxby sending a mail to mer-general+subscribe-digest@lists.merproject.org07:32
Stskeepsare you Christopher R. Parr by chance?07:32
Stskeepswell, i saw a blank email from you to mer-general@ at least07:32
Stskeepsso that might have been the subscribe attempt?07:32
Stskeepson 8th february07:32
fosstuxoI think I know what's wrong: I'll send a mail to - so without -digest07:33
Stskeepslet me know if it doesn't work07:34
fosstuxit worked. Thanks07:35

*** jukkaeklund has joined #mer07:42
Stskeepshuomenta jukka07:44
jukkaeklundseen this
Stskeepsyes, but given how much trouble a similar approach caused on n900, i'm a bit wary of it07:45
Stskeepsand it requires open mode kernel likely07:45
Stskeepsif you have open mode, you might as well just try to kexec instead07:45
jukkaeklundkexec is disabled in N9 afaik07:46
Stskeepsmm, in closed mode maybe07:46
jukkaeklundopen mode kernel for harmattan?07:47
Stskeepsright, it does exist07:48
jukkaeklundI'm lost.. whats blocking marquiz's dualbooter from working in N9?07:50
*** vakkov has joined #mer07:51
Stskeepswell, i think part of it is that it would normally install into the moslo partition which isn't really in use07:52
Stskeepsi guess you can make a combination if you install this into the root file system07:52
Stskeepsonce i'm 'free', i can look more into this personally07:53
jukkaeklundah right, moslo is disabled in N9..07:53
jukkaeklundI wonder does the warranty void thing show with that preinit hack07:54
*** meego82 has joined #mer07:54
Stskeepsi would assume so07:54
Stskeepselse aegis will kill things07:55
jukkaeklundStskeeps, I think method to dual boot in N9 is long overdue..07:55
jukkaeklundmaybe marquiz could take a look as well?07:55
Stskeepsi'll put some time into it during next week, if nothing pre-empts it07:56
Stskeepsi've devised a way to do deepily embedded systems from scratch with the ease of using OBS and unmodified rpm packaging, so that idea warrants me to take a bit of time07:57
Stskeepscould blow several existing solutions out of the market07:57
*** meego82 has quit IRC07:57
Stskeepscould change how people build mobile devices, too07:58
jukkaeklundsure :)07:59
jukkaeklundcant wait to see a demo on a piece of glass :p07:59
jukkaeklundwondering do I need to get a new "tablet"..08:00
*** Jade has quit IRC08:00
jukkaeklundnook, spark, archos..08:00
Stskeepsi'd say archos g9 has the most potential08:00
jukkaeklundand OMAP408:01
jukkaeklundfor 279e :o08:01
Stskeepsas well as
jukkaeklundthough how well thats going to work with mer etc?08:02
Stskeepsi actually don't know what modem that one is.. let me look08:03
*** Alison_Chaiken has quit IRC08:03
Stskeepsit's compatible with normal pc/mac so i assume ofono would be able to handle it08:03
jukkaeklundtheir model naming is getting out of hand..08:06
jukkaeklundalso "turbo" is OMAP4460, but what does this mean: 'from 1.2GHz to 1.5GHz (at start of 2012)'08:06
jukkaeklundI'll get it anyway, lets see if somebody wants to pay the bill..08:07
_av500_jukkaeklund: 1.5ghz units have been phased in now08:08
_av500_all production is 1.5 now08:08
jukkaeklundok, thanks08:09
jukkaeklundhow do I make sure its 1.5 and not old stock if I get one?08:09
Stskeeps_av500_: happen to know what modem chipset sits in the 3g stick?08:09
_av500_i can find out08:10
_av500_could be as simple as some qualcomm08:10
jukkaeklundeg I'm looking at this page which says 1.2-1.5
Stskeeps_av500_: that'd be great08:10
_av500_jukkaeklund: I am not saying our marketing did a great job with the 1.2 vs 1.5 confusion08:10
jukkaeklund:) really cool if you could check it08:11
jukkaeklundso it's a different variant of OMAP4460?08:12
_av500_the 1.2 is 443008:12
* _av500_ is confused too08:12
jukkaeklundso is it that simple, Turbo is 4460 and older one 4430?08:13
_av500_older turbo is 4420@1.208:14
jukkaeklundso I'd want the new Turbo08:14
_av500_as i said all the new stuff is 446008:15
*** Cwalle has quit IRC08:16
jukkaeklundsure, but some retailer might have the old one which they try to get rid of08:18
jukkaeklundis there a model number etc to check?08:19
* jukkaeklund looking at
timophhuh. forum.meego still exists?08:23
* timoph looks08:23
jukkaeklundtimoph, why it wouldn't?08:23
timophdunno. maybe it's just my ignorance08:24
timophpretty much washed my hand from activities some months ago08:24
jukkaeklundsure, but you're looking at it a bit strict..08:25
jukkaeklundeg. whats in a name..08:25
timophI know08:26
jukkaeklundso this is the best deal I could find now:
* timoph is tempted08:30
jukkaeklundsorry :)08:31

*** beford has quit IRC08:31
timophteasing me with gadgets? don't be ;)08:31
jukkaeklundthere is also a 8" model with same HW08:33
timophat least I prefer the smaller one08:33
timoph10' is too big for me08:33
*** Guest85751 is now known as Termana08:34
timophwhat would be interesting IMO would be a device with eink display that can boot custom stuff08:35
Stskeepstimoph: there is such devices.. hang on08:36
* timoph hangs on08:36
jukkaeklundkindle not?08:37
timoph'Work in progress (usually it means "Nothing works yet")'08:39
Stskeepswell at least they're up front ;)08:41
timophseems that the supported devices are mostly older versions08:46
*** NIN101 has joined #mer08:50
boari installed openinkpot on my Hanlin v308:55
boarwas way slower than the factory OS08:55
boarbut it did work08:55
boarforget xactly how much slower, but it had PDF refloew, better fonts, all sorts of nice stuff not on factory OS08:56
boaralso that hanlin v3 was a 200 mhz MIPS, not exactly performant08:57
*** phaeron has joined #mer09:01
Stskeepsmorn phaeron09:02
phaeronStskeeps: morning09:02
Stskeepsphaeron: i've updated Merproject/ with sb2 patches, your transparent prjlinks and brought it to sync with upstream09:02
Stskeepstrial packaging runs more than welcome09:03
phaeronin a second :)09:03
Stskeepsno problem, just letting you know :)09:04
Sage_hello all09:06
Stskeepsmorn sage09:06
StskeepsSage_: did you see my black magic build?09:08
Sage_Stskeeps: so what is the status of 0.20120209.x should it be moved to 0.20120216.x ?09:08
Sage_Stskeeps: black magic build?09:08
Stskeepstop and bottom09:09
StskeepsSage_: i think 16 is more realistic atm as we are finally making OBS packages for the sb2-obs etc stuff09:09
Stskeepscontent wise, 0.0.3 is pretty much a prerelease09:09
Sage_Stskeeps: echo $PATH?09:10
Sage_binaries do not need to locate in those usual dirs09:11
StskeepsSage_: long story short, the target is void of actual tools, everything is being done by the x86 side tools09:11
StskeepsSage_: transparently09:11
Stskeeps(no $PATH obscure stuff involved)09:11
Stskeepsthere's even no 'bash' in the target chroot09:11
Sage_ok, so no "tricks" :)09:11
Stskeepswell, sb2 is a giant trick09:11
Stskeepsbut this means you can do very small stacks, with the ease of OBS and spec files09:11
Sage_well you can put it like that as well :)09:11
Stskeepsimagine bootstrapping cross compiler, uclibc, add busybox package on top, perhaps qt, in a nice small OBS project09:13
Stskeepsjust like we put together stacks atm09:13
Sage_what is the way to get to the x86 side? I though that it goes with binaries that link on that side or something.09:13
Stskeepshmm? well, right now this is just a proof of concept, it piggypacks on a mer platform sdk09:14
Stskeepspiggybacks, that is09:14
Sage_Let me ask this say in the very beginning there is e.g. gzip cmd called that is not located in the env. Where does that call actually go then?09:14
Stskeepsthat gets caught by the exec() handler in sb2 and redirected to be using the x86/tools side gzip inside09:15
phaeronStskeeps:  built fine09:16
Sage_ah, ok so like every cmd that is executed is caught by sb2 if it is not in the env itself09:16
Stskeepsright, it's caught always09:16
Stskeepsbasically sb2 can change the perception of file system for a process and execution strategies09:16
Stskeepsphaeron: ok, so we should try this out on cfe/cbe today i guess09:17
Stskeeps(the 'new' cobs)09:17

*** niqt has joined #mer09:23

Stskeepsdid i mention it's unmodified spec files?16:39
*** Anssi138 has joined #mer16:40
lbtdoes that rely on spec not having a BR on somehing provided by sb2?16:40
Stskeepsno, i'll provide a toolchain-provides package that has Provides: name = version for each16:41
Stskeepsand it should resolve fine16:41
Stskeepsit also means there's no more endless rebuild loops in builds for ports16:43

alien_nope, and I broke my VM completely18:31
Stskeepsah, okay18:31

alien_I would like to focus my efforts on my set-top-box for a few weeks18:32
Stskeepsi know that feeling -- i'm getting so tired of my boxee setup being broke18:33
alien_and in the process see if we can get started a XBMC(or qtMediaHub) community around mer18:33
Stskeepsand i want to move away from that18:33
Stskeepsqtmediahub we have packaged and there's people trying to make real products with it18:33

Stskeepsqtmediahub even works nicely with qt raster engine18:34

Stskeepsgo ahead, ask some questions :)18:52
*** Venemo_N950 has quit IRC18:52
*** Venemo_N950 has joined #mer18:52
alex___I have read that spark will provide this os18:52
alex___my question is:18:52
Stskeepsplasma active will be based on top of mer on top of spark, yeah18:53
alex___will I be able to install all the applications that actually run on linux?18:53
alex___I mean the hardware is arm18:53
Stskeepsit's a pretty bog standard linux system18:53
alex___I do not know if all apps are installable on arm18:53
Stskeepsit's up to the spark people how they want to do it though18:53
Venemo_N950alex___, you can install basically anything that can be compiled for ARM18:54
CrnkojStskeeps i had actually one question too, recently i got me the humble bundle for android and apart from the android versions they have linux versions for x86 and x86_64 aswell, now my question is do you think it would be possible to convince them to make a linux .rpm/.deb package of them compiled for arm aswell ?18:54
Stskeeps(and you'll take the effort to package and build...)18:54
StskeepsCrnkoj: i think it comes down to GLES support and providing them with easy tools18:54
alex___so I'll be able to install a debian arm too?18:55
Stskeepsi don't think they're locking it down, so i'd assume so18:55
alex___and switch to debian completely18:55
CrnkojStskeeps im not entirely sure what to think of your anwser ^ ^18:55
Stskeepsit's a computer, but do keep in mind it's a mobile device18:55
StskeepsCrnkoj: okay, so, if you give them an easy sdk tod o so, it's feasible18:55
Crnkojah ok18:55
Crnkoji meant more like18:56
StskeepsCrnkoj: that's the platform SDK work we're doing18:56
Crnkojcouldnt they just compile the sources they have for arm ?18:56
Crnkojlike i do for my pandaboard?18:56
Venemo_N950alex___, not sure why you'd want to do that, but I think you can18:56
StskeepsCrnkoj: there's always pitfalls like alignment and hardcoded assembly or other x86 assumptions18:56
Crnkojfor the apps/games ?18:56
Stskeepsut yes18:56
alex___I explain18:56
Crnkojut ?18:56
alex___I have a sheevaplug with debian installed18:56
*** Anssi138 has joined #mer18:57
alex___I would like to use on the spark all the applications I use in debian18:57
StskeepsCrnkoj: "but"18:57
Stskeepsalex___: you may be able to, but you'd have to handle the hardware adaptation yourself18:57
CrnkojStskeepsim just thinking out loud, but wouldnt be quite beneficiary for mer/meego to get as many people as possible interested to do apps, maybe you guys could contact the humble guys if its possible and feasible for them to do it18:57
CrnkojStskeeps ill ask them myself aswell, but i think a group of devs for mer might have more influence on their decision18:58
StskeepsCrnkoj: yes, no doubt, but we're not trying to do an ecosystem here, vendors work together on that18:58
Stskeepswe don't even promise binary compatibility :)18:58
Crnkojaha ok18:58
Crnkojye i know vendors :)18:58
Crnkojits not all vendors though ;)18:58
*** alien_ has joined #mer18:58
alex___what do you think about the spark?18:59
*** vakkov has quit IRC18:59
Stskeepsalex___: a good direction, we're happy to see people use mer as a core18:59
Stskeepsfor their products18:59
alex___what is the relation between your dev group and the company that will sell the device?19:00
Venemo_N950I have my doubts about Plasma Active, but otherwise it's a good direction, yes19:00
Stskeepsalex___: mer produces a core, doesn't do touch hardware adaptations or ui's, our customers are vendors like spark and/or plasma active19:01
Stskeepsalex___: plasma active is represented in the mer advisory board as to help influence direction19:01
Stskeepsso, that's the relation19:01
Stskeepswe enable them to not having to worry about the core systems work, they can focus on hardware (spark) and UI (plasma active)19:02
Venemo_N950Stskeeps, I'd like to ask something too. who's funding the Mer project?19:02
alex___what about to delete the core and install ubuntu with unity?19:02
Stskeepsalex___: well, you'd have to ask others about that :)19:02
StskeepsVenemo_N950: it's a co-operative, people who use it pitch in19:02
alex___is it feasable?19:03
Venemo_N950alex___, unity is unsuitable for touchscreen use19:03
Venemo_N950Stskeeps, ah, I see :)19:03
Stskeepsalex___: if you want to do another system on spark, spark would have to be unlocked (which it probably is by standard) and you'd have to handle all the stuff yourself19:03
alex___I do not know I neverr used it19:03
StskeepsVenemo_N950: first advisory board will have a short statement on who pays what19:03
Venemo_N950Stskeeps, I'm asking just out of curiosity :)19:04
StskeepsVenemo_N950: :nod:19:04
alex___I would like to use mer to run applications like the gimp or libreoffice or it possible?19:04
StskeepsVenemo_N950: we've been able to push work into it because of the nemo work but that part ends soon from nokia side19:04
Stskeepsalex___: if you package it up, but do recall it's a capactive touchscreen19:04
Stskeeps(i think)19:04
Stskeepstablet is not desktop19:05
Venemo_N950Stskeeps, how soon? and what'll happen to Nemo then?19:05
StskeepsVenemo_N950: it goes on as long as there's contributors19:05 you mean compile myself or something more sophisticated?19:05
StskeepsVenemo_N950: we converted into a open source project long ago, i haven't really touched closed source side for ages19:05
Stskeepsalex___: compile/package in spec files19:05
Venemo_N950how optimistic are you about it? :)19:06
StskeepsVenemo_N950: i think there's something really good there and people should realize that19:06
Venemo_N950yeah, people should.19:06
alex___will someone precomplie those big applications for mer?19:06
*** harbaum has joined #mer19:06
Venemo_N950alex___, which ones?19:06
Stskeepsalex___: well, people within the mer community, maybe, but the project itself only concerns itself with making a good core and tools surrounding it19:07
alex___the gimp, libreoffice19:07
*** Anssi138 has quit IRC19:07
Venemo_N950alex___, those things are outside the scope of Mer.19:07
Stskeepsalex___: you can probably use debian in a chroot if you so desire19:07
alex___I think the biggest problem is the porting to arm. For that you should have a great amount of time and resources19:08
Stskeepsyou would actually think o19:08
Stskeepsthese days it's really not that bad19:08
Stskeepslibreoffice is an exceptin19:08
Stskeepsmy keyboard sucks.19:08
Venemo_N950alex___, actually, the biggest problem is that all the apps you mentioned aren't designed for touchscreen use.19:09
alex___I was aware that ubuntu wanted to port all the software to arm19:09
Stskeepswe're very intentionally not trying to contain the kitchen sink :)19:09
alex___already in 9.1019:09
*** vakkov has joined #mer19:09

alex___mer is a great proj19:10
alex___I see19:10
Stskeepswhat you can do with spark, well, it's a open device and a computer, you can probably do everything with it :)19:10
alex___the only problem is: without apps what could you do?19:11
Venemo_N950about apps support, you'd better ask the PA folks at #active19:11
