sonachStskeeps: although I met the "Ignored failure when building extensions, pure python modules will be used instead", I am setting-up MDS now. It is downloading mer-core/cario.06:02
Stskeepsok06:03
Stskeepsso it's grabbing the source packages06:03
Stskeepsi'm hoping one day we can have MDS as part of platform SDK or something so there's zero setup needed06:03
sonachYes. Have you had your morning coffee already? :)06:04
Stskeepsyes, but i'm a little sick today so i'm not going to be very useful :/06:04
sonach...bless...06:04
Stskeepsbut let's see how i feel later in the morning06:05
sonachhmm, maybe you work too hard. Having a rest could do great help,06:05
Stskeepshehe, maybe06:07
sonachand, is it necessary to break the setup process to modify the Makefile alike, in order to grab i586 and ARMv7l binaries only? Or just grab all the binaries?06:07
Stskeepsok, you see         rsync -aHx --verbose rsync://releases.merproject.org/mer-releases/obs-repos/Core:*:`cat obs-repos/latest.release` obs-repos06:08
Stskeepsin the Makeile?06:08
Stskeepsreplace with http://pastie.org/339247806:09
Stskeepsthen it only grabs those two06:09
sonachOK, I will stop the process and modify the Makefile:)06:11
Stskeepsit is fully resume-able so you can stop the process without problem and re-start it06:12
Stskeepsi have sometimes bad internet connection too, so )06:12
Stskeeps:)06:12
sonachyes. At the same time, I want to download platform SDK too. Is the platformSDK-downloading resumable?06:13
Stskeepsyes, it should be06:13
sonachcool!06:13
Stskeepsif it's not, please tell lbt to make it ;)06:13
sonachOK,06:13
Stskeepsnokia had a irritating thing for a while where their SDK was like 1.4gb and not resume-able06:14
Stskeepsthat was very bad for developers06:14
sonachhmm, that is very bad...06:15
sonachand, how big is Mer's platform sdk?06:16
Stskeeps67.3mb right now06:16
Stskeepsso, not bad06:16
wmaronedownright tiny06:17
sonachvery good!06:17
timophStskeeps: planning to submit a paper to akademy? Mer might be a welcomed topic there since the spark should have just arrived then06:17
Stskeepswmarone: well, we don't have any targets within it so, that is pulled down afterwards06:20
Stskeepswmarone: sysroots will add a bit :)06:20

sonachStskeeps: ingenic? very good:)06:58
sonachGot some ingenic boards ?06:58
Stskeepsnot yet, one of the purposes to talk to them is to learn about their support for opengl es + ingenic chips06:59
Stskeepsand what their chips are capable of06:59
Stskeepsmany people were interested because of the 99 USD MIPS android tablet06:59
sonachthe 99 USD MIPS android tablet is ingenic?07:00

sonachStskeeps: Does Gstreamer have hardware requirement interface similar to openmax?07:12
*** ZiQiangHuan has joined #mer07:12
sonachStskeeps: that is to say, whether gst have standard hardware A/V acceleration framework?07:13
Stskeepssonach: no, it's basically an abstraction of video/audio, so you add plugins that can decode07:13
Stskeepsfor example on my n900 we have a "gst-dsp" plugin which decodes some types of video/audio using the DSP on the OMAP343007:14
Stskeepsit could also be software decoding plugins07:14
Stskeepsdecode or encode, that is07:14
sonachStskeeps: so these plug-ins is equal to openmax in function?07:14
Stskeepsopenmax is just an interface to use hardware to decode/encode without having to write software specifically for that chip, while gstreamer is a generic framework07:15
Stskeepskind of like opengl es is an interface to many different graphics chips07:15
sonachSo, if hi3716m does support openmax, gst should use it instead of writing our own plug-in. is that right?07:16
Macerhm07:16
Stskeepsyes07:16
Maceranybody know if there are other places than login.defs or profiel where a umask would be set for sshd/ssh?07:16
Stskeepsbut i can't figure out if it supports it or not07:16
Macersftp and sshfs seems to be 0077 whereas locally both are 002207:17
*** dcthang has joined #mer07:17
sonachStskeeps: OK. We will figure out this. thank you for the clarity:)07:17
phaeronStskeeps: it seems openmax can be plugged into a gst pipeline http://freedesktop.org/wiki/GstOpenMAX07:17
Stskeepsphaeron: yes07:17
sonachphaeron: what does this mean?07:18
*** licl has joined #mer07:18
phaeronsonach: you can use openmax as a part of a gstreamer pipeline07:18
Stskeepssonach: just what we just talked about :) that to decode in gstreamer, it can use openmax07:18

lbtI'm going to finish up the new OBS and then wrap up the SDK09:32
lbtit should be just about useable at the moment - the main issue is doing an "osc build"09:32

Stskeepsspidermonkey failing, not surprising10:25

Stskeepszumbi: i'm transparently cross building, there's no 'gcc', 'bash' etc in target, it acts like a fast arm machine11:04
Stskeepsi am not modifying package in any way11:04
zumbiis that SB2 patches?11:05
Stskeepsyeah, it's built using sb211:05
Stskeepsthe idea is the toolchain-core split, where toolchain is x86 and core is not self-hosted11:05
zumbiand is it faking native gcc with cross-gcc?11:05
Stskeepsyeah11:06
Stskeepsit means i can build everything from a wireless router to a full netbook with same tools and ease of use11:06
zumbithere might be some corner cases where it fails11:06
Stskeepsprobably, yeah11:06

*** xmlich02 has quit IRC12:25
sonachin my opinion, "osc" is used to build stuff on OBS. So, what is osc used for in platform SDK?12:25
sonachI am puzzled about this12:25
Stskeepssonach: platform sdk contains tools that's useful for a mer developer (and vendor developer)'s usual day to day activities12:26
Stskeepssonach: so the osc in platform sdk will always work with mer systems12:26
Stskeepsinstead of being a random one from ubuntu12:26
sonachah. I can understand this,because sdk can share the network connection with host PC and can access remote OBS:)12:27
Stskeepssonach: we will add things for building software without obs soon as well, but we needed some things to work first before we did that, which is the first version you see there12:27
lbtyes12:27

lbtthe sdk is supposed to be easily cleaned too12:28
sonachIn My POV, osc is useless for 'official' Platform SDK...12:28
lbtthat's OK12:28
sonachI think that platform SDK is used to build source code locally, and create image,12:29
lbtthere will be a variety of uses12:29
lbtand that use is there too12:29
lbtsonach: actually the SDK *is* an "osc build"12:29
Stskeepssonach: it's not useless in the big perspective, when you look beyond just one developer and into a team working together12:29
*** NPX has joined #mer12:30
lbtwe'll probably have some command like "sdk setup-to-build project/package"12:30
lbtwhich will be a lot like "osc build project/package"12:30
Stskeepsexample use case: do your software with scratchbox2 and gcc and so on, then upload with osc to team server to build12:30
lbtbut will put things into one of your SDKs12:30
sonachStskeeps: you are right, I forget that I should use osc to commit my code to OBS server, so I need a stable osc different from linux distro(such as ubuntu,fedora...)12:32
Stskeepssonach: yeah, because those are very often old12:32
sonachStskeeps: I find that "Retrieving: gcc-4.6.3-1.19.i486.rpm". What should I do if I want to build for ARM?12:33
Stskeepssonach: that's what we're working on next week :)12:34
sonachOK:) so now I can test is to build for X86?12:34
Stskeepsyes12:34
sonachcool:)12:34
sonachI think sb2 will be the main point to support cross-compilation?12:35
Stskeepsyes12:35
Stskeepswe got delayed because we had to deploy sb2 on OBS side and it takes a little longer than expected12:35
sonach"deploy sb2 on OBS" is for MDS?12:35
Stskeepsit's for actually cross building inside our build servers12:36
Stskeepsthe combination of sb2 and OBS is completely new technology12:36

StskeepsMDS is a thing that helps people use mer in their build systems without having always to communicate with our main servers12:37
sonachah, new technology:) Now I don't quite understand the cross-compilation process of OBS, let alone sb2. Is that any wiki page explains those?12:37
Stskeepsi should probably do a diagram, but it is a bit hard to understand for many12:38
sonachStskeeps: Several days ago, we had a disscussion with meego's toolchain maintainer, she explained that OBS uses qemu to do cross-compilation... but I am puzzled about this...12:39
*** jukkaeklund has quit IRC12:40
sonachAnyway, If you have worked out the diagram, please tell me:) I think I should try to understand this:)12:40
Stskeepssonach: long story short: Scratchbox2 is a technology that can change the perception of file system for a process (for example, make /bin point to /target/bin), or choose another binary to execute when a command is executed (for example gcc to ARM cross compiler)12:40
Stskeepssonach: expanding a bit on this you can make a fake world that can run ARM binaries in qemu, but for many things like compiler, use X86 binaries instead12:41
Stskeepsso very little is built with emulation12:41
Stskeepsit's a bit high tech :)12:42
sonachit really is!12:50

alteregoHrm, I'm on 516:40

Stskeeps:nod:17:28
Stskeepsi'm not underestimating b2g fwiw, but they do have fatal dependencies on android17:28
Stskeepsno matter how much they try and slice and dice it17:29
Stskeepsbut they might actually get some devices out with that17:30
alteregoStskeeps: how small can we get Mer do you think?17:31
Stskeepsalterego: in what timeframe?17:31
alteregoSay if I wanted a dist < 2M using busybox etc, for a real minimal, would using mer as a base be a good idea?17:31
w00trm -rf ALL the things!17:31
Stskeepsi have some wet dreams about the core to rule all cores, but let's see how bad it gets17:31
Stskeepsalterego: well, the split-toolchain-core thing i'm working on certainly has the ability to do funky things17:32
alteregoBasically, if it can build uclibc and busybox I'm happy ;)17:32
Stskeepsthat's one of the ideas..17:32
Stskeeps:P17:32
alteregoI also need to contend with a weird fs image format. But meh :)17:33
bigbluehatStskeeps: keep up the greatness :) I do think a primary (single?) mobile linux core makes sense17:33
bigbluehatthe one in webOS is likely quite different…for example17:33

alteregoMy other idea, is to use RF links between each home automation "node" and then have the N900 or a server able to access that "network".19:27
alteregoI quite like that idea, because it's more of a challange, but the range of the RF tranceivers probably isn't that great.19:27

alteregoI have 3 stories and BT doesn't reach from the ground to top floor (annoyingly my main room ;)19:28
ali1234something slower will cover more19:29

Stskeepsand they explained this somewhere but i can't find it right now20:15
AndrewFBlacklbt: I guess I just think its a little high markup, but I'm sure users that wouldn't know how to install Mer on it if a version was available for it wouldn't mind paying the extra money.20:15
*** steff-ubu has joined #mer20:15
lbtAndrewFBlack: yeah - I'm just rather happy to see their approach to the market20:16
Stskeepsactually, they started at 270 USD and now they're saying around 20020:16
Stskeepsso i think they realised the markup was too high20:16
lbtequally if they got more response and re-evaluated volume they may get better deals20:17
AndrewFBlackSites doesn't list USD its Euros or GBP cna't remember the symbols lol20:17
lbtTarget retail price of €20020:18
Stskeepsbut anyway, the point is: compared to android where you pay with your user data for a 'free system', you instead pay into the communities developing the software20:18
Stskeepsso that's a good reason for the markup, maybe not the best global marketing strategy :)20:18
AndrewFBlackwhat do you mean pay into the communities developing the software, isn't the money for the tablet just going to the people who are installing the OS on the tablets?20:19

StskeepsAndrewFBlack: nop, they're pushing them back into plasma active community as an example20:20
lbtfwiw they're looking to fund it all back to OSS20:20
Stskeepsvgrade: ah, there it was20:20
Stskeepsread vgrade's url :)20:20
StskeepsAndrewFBlack: one example of what they would do could for example be sponsoring servers for mer, as they base on our work20:21
AndrewFBlackStskeeps: I didn't see that listed anywhere that changes things20:21
vgradeand my Ferrari20:21
StskeepsAndrewFBlack: :nod: they should be more public about that, and sponsoring vgrade's ferrari20:21
lbthmm that's a good point - asiego already talked about funding Mer .... I hadn't forgotten but I wasn't thinking of it in this discussion20:22
lbtvgrade: ferrari...? Wuss. Get a Tiv !20:22
*** jluisn has quit IRC20:22
AndrewFBlackI was thinking someone was buying $130 tablets, taking a few hours to install Mer and Plasma Display and adding $200.20:22
Stskeepsnop, it's bigger than that20:23
Stskeepsor at least if we trust them on their words20:23
*** jluisn has joined #mer20:23
AndrewFBlackI would like to see them offer then to developers at cost, I think that might do more for some people.20:24
Stskeepsthey should really note that aspect better20:25
lbtAndrewFBlack: I guess the think is ... how many devs pay full price for apple equipment?20:25
lbtsure there are cases where they should (and will) support developers20:26
StskeepsAndrewFBlack: i think sadly that for startups giving rebates to developers is not that easy in this economic environment :/20:26
StskeepsAndrewFBlack: best thing that they can do is reserve spots in orders so they have them early20:26
lbtbut there are plenty of devs who throw a *lot* of money at gadgets and wish they were more open20:26
lbtthis is a gadget that *is* more open .... and we want it to be cheaper?20:27
vgradebut the device is aimed at devs20:27
*** toscalix has quit IRC20:27
Sage_X-Fade: sync ping20:29
Stskeepseither way, it's good to see someone dare to launch anything with mer ;)20:30
AndrewFBlackI have paid for some of my Dev Devices but most I have goten for cheap or free.20:30
AndrewFBlackStskeeps: I'm happy to see it launch to20:30
*** jluisn has quit IRC20:32
StskeepsAndrewFBlack: btw, were you into theme design only or into web design to?20:32
Stskeepso20:32
AndrewFBlackActive Plasma look but I would really perfer goold old hildon I think lol20:32
Stskeepshehe20:32
AndrewFBlackStskeeps: theme and web design20:32
*** jluisn has joined #mer20:32
Stskeepsyou could run cordia on there probably, at least apps side20:32
*** berndhs_950 has quit IRC20:33
StskeepsAndrewFBlack: if you have any sort of time and if you want to, i'd really appreciate some help on the mer website20:33
Stskeepsit's straight to the point at the moment but not terribly informative20:33
Stskeepsor deep20:34
AndrewFBlackStskeeps: I have both, you wanting to add some new features to site or just change the look/layout20:35
StskeepsAndrewFBlack: i think a bit of both, stay with the mer general style but perhaps extend into more sections20:36
AndrewFBlackhttp://wiki.merproject.org/wiki/Website_Ideas some of the ideas you still wanting?20:37
Stskeeps-ish .. this was a guy who came by with some ideas of the website.. it's terribly important to have basic information on the project, even links to wiki at times20:38
Stskeepsso, just for good measure: we're presenting a linux core and we try to refer within the site to the people and contributors within mer, as well as vendors within the mer ecosystem20:39
Stskeepsand giving people enough info to dive into wiki, start using mer, etc20:39
Stskeeps.. as the purpose of the website20:39
Stskeepswe're not trying to present ourselves to endusers, but instead to vendors (companies, ui projects, hardware adaptation efforts, or lone hackers using mer to make a interactive sign)20:40
Stskeeps(just brainstorming)20:40
AndrewFBlackright now there is bugzilla and wiki.  Do you want to add any forums?20:43
*** jluisn has quit IRC20:44
Stskeepsno, we have mailing lists20:44
*** jluisn has joined #mer20:44
Stskeepswe have bugzilla, wiki, review.merproject.org20:44
AndrewFBlackDo you want a section that highlights End User Products, Like Nemo and Codia?20:44
*** Jade has quit IRC20:45
Stskeepsi think some kind of vendor list would be good20:45
vgrade"Powered by Mer Core"20:46
Stskeepsmm?20:46
Stskeepsfor example, but vendors can be consultancies within OBS, Mer systems, etc..20:46
AndrewFBlackGot a preferance on what software runs the website?20:46
lbtshould run on debian20:47
lbteasy to install security updates20:47
StskeepsAndrewFBlack: well, what's your preferred tool?20:47
AndrewFBlackStskeeps: I normally use Joomla, sometimes Drupal makes for easy theming, can bridge your user database to alot of other things like bugzilla20:49
AndrewFBlackmaemo.org uses Migard20:50
*** pohly has quit IRC20:51
lbtfrom a functional pov I think we mainly want blog and some content structure20:52
*** dazo is now known as dazo_afk20:53
lbteither drupal or joomla would be perfectly capable - whichever is easier to setup and maintain.20:53
AndrewFBlackJoomla is easier to me.20:54
*** JoseLuis has joined #mer20:54
lbtone reason for using it for blogs is that chinese can't see mainstream blog services20:54
*** jluisn has quit IRC20:55
*** Jade has joined #mer20:58
AndrewFBlackSo we want a blog, information about Mer page, Vendor List, links to wiki and bugzilla.  anything else20:59
StskeepsPeople, perhaps20:59

lbthmm yeah21:00
lbtAndrewFBlack: what's your feeling about django?21:00
AndrewFBlackNever used it21:01
lbtah well :)21:01
Stskeepslooks heavy21:01
Stskeepsfor non-python coders21:01
lbtmmm21:01
lbtthere are CMS built with it21:02
lbtand we know it very well (phaeron and I)21:02
Stskeepsthat's true, but ideally you two shouldn't be doing web :)21:02
lbtexactly21:03
bigbluehatStskeeps: I recommend HTML :)21:03
lbtHTML5 surely21:03
Stskeepsi'm inclined towards joomla or drupal, midgard not so much, as it's easier to find people who know how to work with it amongst contributors21:03
bigbluehat;)21:03
bigbluehathow much do you really need/want?21:03
*** lizardo has quit IRC21:03
bigbluehatbasic intro, blog maybe, wiki, etc you already have21:03
lbtbigbluehat: not much at all ... see backlog21:04
*** vakkov has quit IRC21:04
bigbluehatright…saw most of it21:04
Stskeepsstill a lot of templating work21:04
bigbluehatI'd recommend plain HTML21:04
bigbluehatand apply the template to everything else21:04
Stskeepsplain html has issues when changing template around ;)21:04
bigbluehatmake it a github project :)21:04
bigbluehatand let people fork i21:04
bigbluehat*it21:04
lbtthat's an idea21:05
bigbluehatwell… http://twitter.github.com/bootstrap21:05
lbtnot a good one... but it's an idead :P21:05
bigbluehatheh21:05
* Stskeeps should get some sleep21:05
bigbluehatget some Stskeeps21:05
lbtthe first thing is probably a simple css'able view that can work on desktop and device21:06
StskeepsAndrewFBlack: if you'd like to call a irc meeting to discuss website content you're more than welcome, just lay out some directions and basic templates i guess21:06
AndrewFBlackdjangoCMS is based off django it seems21:06
lbtAndrewFBlack: yes21:06
Stskeepsah, yeah, good point: useful on desktop and device21:06
Stskeepsor at least somehow templateable to fit both21:07
*** JoseLuis has quit IRC21:08
*** jluisn has joined #mer21:08
