ZiQiangHuanStskeeps: When I play mp3 in my qtmediahub but no success, then  I checked the xsession-errors carefully and found a message "open: Permission denied". Maybe that's the reason. Any idea about that ?02:50

Stskeepssonach: could you tell ziqianghuan to look if he's using a /dev/ file for mp3 play and check the permissions of that?05:06
kulveInteresting question in the mailing list: "[mer-general] Building Firefox with Mer SDK" (cross-comping for ARM)05:07
Stskeepsi'm seeing it as a good sign that people are -ahead- of what we're going to do next05:08
Stskeepsie, sb2 enabled sdk05:08
Stskeepsit shows we have a pretty good feeling of what's actually needed to be done :P05:08
kulvetrue but it would be nice to say that "you can do it like this" instead of "you will be able to do it like this in the future"..05:10
Stskeepssoon enough..05:11
kulveI'll be doing all my compilations for RPi in SDK locally so hopefully it's working soon ;)05:11
Stskeepsit'll be quite simple really - you'll be able to make a image with 'mic', init it as a sb2 target, run sb2 on top of it with fast zypper/rpm/gcc/bash etc and just build ahead05:12
sonachStskeeps: good morning! I will tell ziqianghuan about this:)05:14
kulveis the purpose of the platform SDK to provide the right versions of the right tools? Could I in theory just install the right tools into my debian stable and skip the platform SDK stuff (just run mic directly in my debian)?05:14
kulveI think that's what I did with meego (although I had problems with "build" package etc..)05:15
Stskeepskulve: the purpose of the platform sdk is to provide the right version of right tools as the problem was that a -lot- of people had all sorts of bizarre issues on various distributions05:15
kulveok, then I understood it correctly :)05:16
Stskeepswhich broke down the ability to ramp up people to use meego as there were more pages on how to fix those bizarre things than instructions how to use them ;)05:16
Stskeepsso yeah, sure05:17
kulvea bit OT for me but was there a plan to provide that as a bootable image for vmware etc.? Is it missing something else than a bootloader and the kernel?05:19
Stskeepsi'm hoping that we'll put out the reference images coupled with nemo projects' x86 adaptations, yeah05:20
Stskeepswith LLVMpipe05:20
Stskeepsyeah, fast GLES software rendering05:21
Stskeepswe had 60fps on x86 virtualbox of libmeegotouch apps05:21
kulvethat's meant for running the target software?05:22
kulveand does it work also for arm?05:23
Stskeepsllvmpipe doesn't work on arm at the moment, due to bugs in LLVM's jit :/05:23
kulveI really dislike the meego way when the doc let you assume you'll be able to do what ever and later it turns out and they were talking about x86 only..05:24
*** kimitake_idle is now known as kimitake05:25
Stskeepsbut the goal is anyway to let people develop mer + mer products in a VM without a device, without it being slideshow05:25
kulveI propose that the documentation talks generally only about the stuff that works both for x86 and for arm. If something extra (like running the target binaries with GUI) works only for either one, that's something documented separately as experimental05:26
Stskeepsmakes sense05:27
*** lynxis has joined #mer05:27
*** lynxis has joined #mer05:27
Stskeepsthere'll be some footnotes for that in mer for sure, ie, availability of libGL API is x86 only05:27
Stskeepsand libGLESv2 is what you should use for portability05:27
kulveI guess the platform sdk doesn't support mips yet?05:28
Stskeepsi have a patch for 'mipsel' for the mic tools i wanted to upstream05:29

ZiQiangHuanStskeeps: I'll check it as you just said.05:41
Stskeepsit sounds a bit like a /dev node with bad permissions you first see the problem when running as user05:41
ZiQiangHuanStskeeps: Maybe I run the command "gst-launch -0.10 -v playbin2 uri=file:///mnt/usb/movies/test1.mp3 " as the root user, qtmediahub is run by user mer05:42
StskeepsZiQiangHuan: yes05:43
Stskeepsyou should make sure your applications can run as user, running as root is bad :)05:43
ZiQiangHuanStskeeps: But how I can run the command "gst-launch-0.10" as user05:43
StskeepsZiQiangHuan: su mer05:44
Stskeepsand test that way05:44

sonachStskeeps: where is the source code of 'qmlwebkitplugin' in MerDS's source code? I cannot find it...06:13
Stskeepssonach: qtwebkit i think06:13
Stskeepswarning: big big source code06:14
sonachI want to have a look at how qtwebkit is pluginned into qml.06:14
Stskeeps is documentation how to use it, is how to extend QML with C++ code06:15

kulveStskeeps: so, I have pvrsrvkm.ko loaded and initialized succesfully and I don't know if I should get omaplfb.ko from somewhere. What to try next? :)06:48
Stskeepskulve: well, pvrsrvinit (?) works fine i presume06:49
Stskeepskulve: start up X, make sure and points to your SGX's libGLESv2.so06:49
Stskeepsand get mer-gfx-tests packae06:50
kulveI run that via "/etc/init.d/rc.pvr start" and based on the debug prints the pvrsrvinit is run fine06:50
Stskeepsand run 'glestest'06:51
kulvethe SGX's installation script created the proper and links, nice06:51
Stskeepsoh finally some sanity06:52
Stskeepsthe story is that the SGX drivers build system is so utterly screwed up that there's no way to get a proper soname in06:52
Stskeepseven intel ended up (when making modern sgx for their devices) just symlining06:52

ZiQiangHuanStskeeps: memmap():open /dev/mem error!07:13
ZiQiangHuanStskeeps: But I changed /dev/mem to "crw-r--r-- 1 root kmem 1, 1 Jan  1 00:00 /dev/mem"07:14
StskeepsZiQiangHuan: eep, your hardware interfacing depends on accessing /dev/mem ?07:15
ZiQiangHuanStskeeps: Maybe07:15
StskeepsZiQiangHuan: that's not good hardware interfacing :)07:15
StskeepsZiQiangHuan: /dev/mem cannot be accessed by user07:15
Stskeepsas it would be a big security hole07:16
*** norayr has joined #mer07:16
ZiQiangHuanStskeeps: yes. But how can I solve this problem?07:16
Stskeepsnot sure07:16
Stskeepsyou can run things as root but that's not good either07:16
kulveit's so nice that the mer shell over the serial console has proper .. shell. E.g. ctrl-r works even over a boot :)07:17
Stskeepskulve: yeah.. no promises it's going to stay like that, or well, you'd probably have a choice between busybox and the usual gnu toolset07:17
ZiQiangHuanStskeeps: you mean "chmod" can't solve this ?07:17
StskeepsZiQiangHuan: correct07:17
ZiQiangHuanStskeeps: How I can make qtmediahub run by root07:18
ZiQiangHuanStskeeps: I see QMH is run by user mer now07:18
StskeepsZiQiangHuan: moment07:18
StskeepsZiQiangHuan: /etc/sysconfig/uxlaunch   ,, add user=root07:20
Stskeepsinstead of what is user= now07:20
ZiQiangHuanStskeeps: I will have a try07:20
Stskeepsthis is a security problem, but since you're prototyping.07:20
kulveStskeeps: (I have no idea about the DRI2 and I guess GLX is something not used with OpenGL ES?)07:21
Stskeepskulve: looks like your libEGL/libGLES is mesa?07:22
ZiQiangHuanStskeeps: yes. Maybe we will talk about this with the device's vendors07:22

*** beford has quit IRC14:03
slaineI've got my phost setup, I've got a fakeobs one setup14:03
djszapianybody using Archlinux in here for development ?14:04
slaineI've got details for setting up 2 other vm's, one for fe/api and not sure what the other was for14:04
eocanhaI get a 404 not found from my local fake obs server. In my case it's: osc meta prjconf mer:Core:i58614:04
lbtslaine: we'll split them fe, be, worker for OBS. I tend to run MDS on it's own machine because I use debian for that14:07
slainewhat's mds ?14:08
lbtdjszapi: yes, osc chroot is very good for that (I assume harmattan?)14:08
* slaine notes this stuff seems to change every time he looks at it ;)14:08
lbtfor mer we have the new SDK but it too would use osc chroot for now14:08
eocanhaslaine: MDS =
lbtslaine: mds is fakeobs but better branding :)14:09
slaineWell, I've got MDS as a VM already ;)14:09
slaineAllocations you mentioned yesterday where, fe/api == 6G /  10G /var  2G swap  100G /srv14:10
slaineSame for be, same for worker ?14:10
* lbt thinks ... does fe need a /srv14:10
lbtno, it doesn't14:11
slaineif it's not actually building anything and hosting anything, I shouldn't14:11
lbtso /srv just on be14:11
slaineI'm assuming fe is only the webui and control code14:11
lbtyes, webui, api, mysql14:11
djszapilbt: nope, mer.14:11
lbtdjszapi: so, for now, mainly osc chroot14:12
lbtdjszapi: we have the platform SDK too14:12
slaineWhats the difference between be and worker then ? I guess that's the next bit I'm not clear on14:12
djszapilbt: platform SDK as in scratchbox ?14:12
lbtdjszapi: I'm working on SDK SB2 right now14:12
djszapiliek on Harmattan ?14:12
lbtdjszapi: no, nothing like except the spelling14:13
lbtslaine: the be will do a few things: scheduling, dispatch jobs, serve binaries, serve sources, publishing14:14
slaineand the worker obviously then does the compilations14:15
*** veskuh has quit IRC14:15
slainewhats the benefit of separating out the be and the worker to different vm's then14:16
djszapilbt: my use case is a scratchbox/chroot alike environment where I can catch typos and other silly stuff without rebuilding everything from scratch like with osc. Osc chroot works to a certain extent. I have never seen anybody getting it work yet on Archlinux. :/14:16
lbtyes - the worker runs the same osc/build that you would on a desktop14:16
lbtslaine: you'll have lots of workers14:16
lbtdjszapi: I understand - that's my current task14:16
lbtthe platform SDK will enable that14:17
lbtfor now osc chroot is almost there14:17
djszapilbt: eta ?14:17
slainedoes the backend not spawn off workers as required ? I've got a single OBS VM at the moment that was able to rebuild from fakeOBS14:17
*** csslayer has quit IRC14:17
lbtslaine: no, think build farm14:17
lbteach box is a 64Gb 4core machine14:18
lbteach row is a worker running on the box14:18
lbtdjszapi: days14:18
slaineI'm not really sure that would be optimal for a small company14:18
lbtslaine: that's why you're running a single VM14:19
slaineI've got access to A server which will have 18GB RAM and 8 Cores,14:19
lbtyou now allocate a 2nd box and run a couple more workers14:19
lbtOK - so you'll probably scale down the memory useage of the fe/be over time14:20
lbtand run some more worker VMs on it14:20
djszapilbt: could you please drop me a query or email ? I do not follow the Mer happenings too often, but I would come back with packaging some stuff.14:20
lbtyou'll probably run 2-3 workers on there using tmpfs14:21
lbtdjszapi: what for?14:21
lbtwhen we have SB2 ?14:21
lbtmaybe follow me on twitter if you do that - I rarely tweet anything non-Mer related14:22
djszapiI do not use twitter.14:22
*** raignarok has quit IRC14:22
lbtok - mer-general mailing list is fairly low volume14:23

djszapimmh, probably never mind since I need to get a package work before the PA sprint anyway14:24
djszapiwhich begins next Tuesday.14:24
slainelbt, so on the above monitor page, each worker is a VM14:24
lbtOK - not sure what you're trying to actually do djszapi ?14:25
lbtslaine: on that deployment yes14:25
lbtslaine: on that deployment, no14:25
lbteach worker is a physical host there14:25
slaineso on that deployment, each worker is a 64GB 4core machine ?14:25
lbtmeego wasn't poor14:26
djszapilbt: package a dependency for KDE Mobile Application development.14:26
djszapiwith zero rpm knowledge.14:26
slainelbt, unfortunately, I am :)14:26
lbtslaine: Mer too14:26
lbthence we spend our money on these
slaineSo, for me, and my single server, and I'll likely never get more than a single server, I need to figure out the optimal setup14:27
lbtnow that's a stonking good deal14:27
lbtyou run one of them with openvpn back to the office and you get a fair few high speed workers for peanuts14:28
slainepretty nice deal alright14:28
lbtjust sayin :)14:28
slaineI wouldn't really need all that building power though14:28
lbtno, indeed - one worker is a fine start14:28
lbtdjszapi: I think you'll be fine using osc chroot14:28
lbtwhat you may want to do is set one up14:28
djszapiyup, for the time being.14:29
lbtthen cp -a it somewhere else14:29
lbtthen mount --bind your home into it14:29
djszapibut osc does not work for Archlinux14:29
djszapiand I do not have access to the ubuntu server right now14:29
lbtOK, not a problem14:29
djszapiso I am kinda out of luck.14:29
lbtyou download the SDK14:29
lbtand install that as a chroot14:29
lbtand do it in there14:29
*** pohly has quit IRC14:29
lbtit's a little more fiddly but I'll talk you through it14:30
ali1234did you compare that against AWS starting builders on demand?14:30
lbtali1234: no14:30
ali1234ok, fair enough14:30
ali1234i have no idea if it would be cheaper either14:30
lbtAWS had issues doing nested virt last time I looked14:30
lbtwe need that for security14:30
ali1234ah ok14:30
lbtHetzner give us raw metal so no nesting needed14:31
slaineWondering if for the optimal deployment, I should have 1 fakeOBS vm, 1 fe/be vm and 1 worker vm14:31
lbtslaine: nag14:31
slaineI could then in theory add other workers if other servers became available14:31
ali1234i guess getting bare metal will always be a problem for cloud services14:31
lbtali1234: yep - nested kvm may help one day14:32
lbtslaine: the setup I described will give you the best flexibility14:32
*** norayr has quit IRC14:32
lbtand won't be improved by consolidating vms14:32
slaineI'm just wary that each VM will allocate resources away from the worker and that's the one that needs the most resources14:33
lbtthe main drawback is that memory isn't dynamically allocated14:33
lbtdon't overthink it14:33
lbtwhen you're talking $60/month for ^^^  your time is by far and away more important14:34
*** jukkaeklund has joined #mer14:34
slaineSo, to recap14:34
slaine1 MDS vm, 1 OBS fe/api VM, 1 OBS be/scheduler VM, 1 OBS Worker VM14:34
lbtyou only need a single large /srv on the be machine14:35
slaineMDS and fe/api should be pretty light weight, 1 cpu, 512MB14:36
lbtacceptable start - MDS will go smaller, fe too probably14:36
*** bergie has quit IRC14:36
slainecool, yeah, actually, I think I've my MDS one on my desktop down at 25614:36

*** eman` has left #mer14:39

*** jstaniek_QFridge has quit IRC14:40

Alison_ChaikenSuppose the Tizen money people said, "We want to have a relation with Mer like that Redhat has with Fedora"?17:38
Stskeepsfrankly, i'd be happy enough with tizen understanding their benefit in this world, ie, to make it a stamp for working web runtime with WAC, HTML5, Tizen apis17:38
Stskeepsthe answer on that seems a bit unclear by now17:39
*** tomeff has joined #mer17:39
Stskeepsmy own opinion is that tizen is more valuable to the general open source community alive than dead, though17:40
Alison_ChaikenFWIW, I agree.    Someone has to pay developers, who will do on their own time whatever they please, just as they always have done.17:41
Stskeepsbut let's see.. meanwhile, mer as a lifeboat doesn't sound like a bad idea, we're making great progress17:41
*** bigbluehat1 has quit IRC17:43
*** bigbluehat has joined #mer17:43
Alison_Chaikenmer is already going to be a success.17:43
Alison_ChaikenHey, even Maemo is going to ship in new Volkswagens according to a guy I talked to at Embedded Linux Conference!17:44
*** phaeron has joined #mer17:44
*** sledges has quit IRC17:44
Stskeepsmy deepest fear is still that someone found old Mer and reusing it for production purposes..17:45

* Stskeeps ponders idly what to work on tonight17:52
bigbluehatStskeeps: you were going to say or send more about Project Grande, I think ;)17:53
Stskeepsyeah, i gave you an url above17:53
bigbluehatand also some photoshop related fodder from a couple days back17:53
bigbluehatyeah, saw that…thought there was more17:54
bigbluehatno worries :)17:54
Stskeepsand a gitorious url with actual code17:54
* bigbluehat signed up for gitorious just for this ;)17:54
bigbluehatright :)17:54
bigbluehatare there screenshots on the wiki?17:54
* bigbluehat is digging back in17:54
bigbluehatalso, I tossed the wiki URL into #webos and swisstomcat (an HP dev engagement guy) said it looked like exciting/interesting stuff :)17:55
Stskeepsah, there's an actual #webos ?17:55
bigbluehatyep, I troll there too ;)17:55
*** phaeron has quit IRC17:55
bigbluehatand an #enyojs for their new framework17:55
Stskeepsi am fairly sure the reason HP bought Autonomy was for the 'a day made of glass' type of world17:55
bigbluehatwell, rewritten framework17:55
Stskeepsyeah, i'm in enyo17:55
Stskeeps is one of the (gpl) qml UIs we mocked up17:55
bigbluehatStskeeps: you've used webOS yes?17:56
bigbluehatparticularlly on the touchpad?17:56
Stskeepsi haven't actually tried it in person17:56
bigbluehatyou need to :)17:56
bigbluehatlots of similar ideas…at least from a conceptual level17:56
bigbluehatthey have this Synergy account thing which integrates disparate info sources (mail, contacts, calendering sources) into a single "db"17:57
bigbluehatand from that into apps…Email, Calendar, Contacts :)17:57
Stskeepsgood idea, didn't work so terribly well performance wise in n917:57
Stskeepsi am a fan of json dbs though17:57
bigbluehatyeah, they're everywhere :)17:58
bigbluehatQT5 from what you (iirc) said recently17:58
bigbluehatI heart #couchdb17:58
bigbluehatMojoDB is #webos's17:58
bigbluehatand it's being open sourced this month17:58
bigbluehatreplicates with #couchdb, etc17:58
bigbluehatsorry…I'm keeping you from code17:58
* bigbluehat shuts up ;)17:58
Stskeepsnah, you're ot17:58
Stskeepsi'm out of work at the moment so my 'workday' is kinda over by now, think i should just enjoy a nice evening and look a bit around the web17:59
bigbluehatout of work like "unemployed"18:00
bigbluehator out of work, like you finished everything :)18:00
Stskeepswell, consultant temporarily without contracts18:00

lbtBeen quiet - real world got in the way this afternoon - and tango tonight. I'll be around tomorrow morning though.18:08
Stskeepshave to enjoy weekends once in a while18:10
* Stskeeps doesn't always work either18:10
lbtDenise spotted a "1920s market" tomorrow - so we're going to look for Art Deco stuff18:11
Alison_ChaikenI'm going on a long bike ride in the morning, and then in the afternoon I'll try to stay awak so I can pretend to work.18:14
bigbluehatlbt: market sounds nice :) where are you at?18:15
lbtReading, UK - it's at the hexagon18:15
Stskeepsbigbluehat: so, the idea i'm having is that if you really want to have a world like in the A day made of glass videos, you have to have frameworks and methods that enable people to quickly mock up and do these kind of environments18:15
bigbluehatlbt: nice…I'll check it out next time I'm across the pond ;)18:16
Stskeepswithout terribly much need for learning platform specifics18:16
lbtbigbluehat: it's a one-off, probably not worth a zero-notice flight :)18:16
bigbluehatlbt: k.18:16
* bigbluehat closes united.com18:17
bigbluehatStskeeps: good plan18:17
Stskeepsbigbluehat: one step on the way is dragging designers and coders closer to eachother and collaborate (i'm from a research center in my uni studies that was big on cross-faculty collaboration)18:17
Alison_ChaikenWhen I worked for HP Labs, we had a video made in Bristol lab that was much like "world made of glass."18:17
Alison_ChaikenAnd when I worked for Nokia, the San Diego folks who worked on CDMA had made one too, although I don't know if it was ever released.18:17
lbtAlison_Chaiken: ah, I've had interviews there...18:17
Stskeepswhere we had architects, graphics designers, coders, antropologists working together towards solutions for healthcare18:17
Alison_ChaikenLots of things were never released from Nokia . . .18:17
bigbluehatStskeeps: I'm both designer and dev, so I understand the need to keep the brain's hemispheres on the same page :)18:18
bigbluehatfollowing so far18:18
StskeepsAlison_Chaiken: was one18:18
Alison_Chaikenlbt, I had planned to relocate to Bristol to work with Anthony Sowden's team on ubiquitous computing, but Hugh Whatsit whole lab got shutdown at the moment I was about to accept the transfer.18:18
Alison_ChaikenStskeeps, the video from SD was different: it was the cliched "day in a typical life in the future," assuming that you were a very wealthy white man in a Western country.18:20
Stskeepsbigbluehat: and one idea is simply that of being able to have a 'blank' mer device and quite easily deploy ideas and concepts to it18:21
Stskeepsand have guides to do that18:21
lbtAlison_Chaiken: name rings a bell18:21
Stskeepsbigbluehat: so, that's where things like photoshop to qml fits in18:22
Alison_ChaikenAnthony Sowden led HP's Nova e-book project, which was impressive for its time.   The technical leads were Keir Shepherd, now at the Beeb, and Ben Wynne, whom I've lost track of.   Those guys were ace!   And also Lon Barfield, a smart UI guy from academia.18:23
Alison_ChaikenOh well, so many bigcos, so many cancelled projects.18:23
* Stskeeps tries to recall a research project he heard about some time back..18:24
Stskeepsah, there:
Stskeepsthey used to have code available18:27
Alison_Chaikencsail!   The former home (as in sleeping quarters) of RMS.   Maybe still is for all I know.18:28
Alison_ChaikenI'll be back at MIT in a couple of weeks for a visit.18:28
djszapibigbluehat: cool18:32
*** phaeron has joined #mer18:33
bigbluehatStskeeps: k. back…and read up :)18:33
* bigbluehat changed a diaper somewhere in there :)18:33
bigbluehatStskeeps: if I'm tracking all this, you're looking for a super easy way to get designer/devs into a "production" (or at least prototype) stage with Mer apps18:34
*** tarantism has joined #mer18:35
djszapibigbluehat: I might ask for help on Mac, if you do not mind.18:35
djszapipardon me, if you mind.18:35
Stskeepsbigbluehat: not so much app but involving them easier in the process18:35
Stskeepsbigbluehat: so it's darn easy to for example do digital signage18:35
Stskeepsi feel sick to my stomach when seeing they're using full-grade windows xp machines in the metro here to run info banners :)18:36
*** npm_ has joined #mer18:38
*** npm has quit IRC18:38
bigbluehatdjszapi: I'lld o what I can but I'm not up to speed on Mer dev on a Mac18:41
bigbluehatI can get you the hookup on building #couchbase and #couchdb on it tho ;)18:42
bigbluehatStskeeps: yeah. detecting the OS on those signage installs are usually findable by the error messages displayed ;)18:42
bigbluehatStskeeps: so you're driving toward what the next "first step" toward simple designer-as-app-builder would be?18:43
bigbluehatPhotoshop 2 QML being a good obvious first step18:44
Stskeepsyeah, there is already an export script but it probably has deficiences18:44
Stskeepslike matrixx said the gimp one had18:44
Stskeepsie, it was png exports18:44
bigbluehatah, gotcha18:45
bigbluehatso what about starting with a simple "stencil" based approach?18:45
bigbluehator something like Ares (a webOS thing...again)18:46
bigbluehatAres 2 is supposed to be open sourced by summer, iirc18:46
Stskeepslooks like what qt creator can do with component18:46
* Stskeeps ponders how well the integration is18:47
bigbluehatyeah, I think I get what you're after :)18:48
bigbluehathow can I help?18:48
Stskeepswell, you're already helping18:48
Stskeepsi don't get to tap into designer brains every day ;)18:48
bigbluehatam I?18:48
bigbluehatah. :)18:48
* bigbluehat plugs his in via USB 3.018:48
Stskeeps is qt designer with symbian components18:48
Stskeepsthat's something like ares?18:54
bigbluehatquite similar18:55
bigbluehatthese things are sadly a dime a dozen18:55
bigbluehatand none(?) of them interop18:55
bigbluehatno reason they couldn't tho :)18:56
bigbluehatlook familiar? :)18:56
