sonachAlison_Chaiken: hi, nice to see you:)03:13
Alison_ChaikenHey, sonach.   Which TZ are you in?03:19
Alison_ChaikenI haven't done too much with Mer yet, alas.03:19
sonachmy local time is 11:19 now,03:20
Alison_ChaikenThe project I work on just had a code release, and I am the build/release engineer.03:20
Alison_ChaikenSo once my packages are up, back to the Mer.03:20
Alison_Chaiken11:19 AM I take it?03:20
sonachyes, 11:19 AM,03:21
Alison_ChaikenIt's 19:20 here, although we're about to set clocks ahead tonight.03:21
Alison_ChaikenThe startup I worked with had a really smart team in Shenzen.    I was supposed to visit them and have a code sprint, but they ran out of money and didn't pay them, so no dice.03:22
Alison_ChaikenFor new contract, I may get to attend Computex though.03:22
Alison_ChaikenI guess Taipei is 1000 miles from Beijing though, huh?03:22
Alison_ChaikenIntel has a big team in Beijing, I know.03:23
Alison_ChaikenThat virtualization guy Haitao Feng is there.03:23
sonachhmm, Intel's meego team is turning to Tizen. We just had a disscussion of Intel's toolchain maintainer several weeks ago. But we don't know Haitao Feng...03:24
*** himamura has quit IRC03:25
sonachThe distance from Tappei to Beijing is about 2000 kilometers,03:25
sonachAlison_Chaiken: Just as you have said, you work are releated to Mer in some way?03:27
Alison_ChaikenMy work is related to Tizen . . . but I have one project assigned by businessperson who doesn't know the difference, so I'll try with Mer.03:27
Alison_ChaikenI submitted an abstract to Tizen Conf comparing Mer to Tizen and other platforms for IVI.03:28
Alison_ChaikenI'm going to install Mer on an Archos tablet, once I get my packages built.03:28
Alison_ChaikenHopefully that won't take past tomorrow afternoon.03:29
sonachAlison_Chaiken: that's cool! Where can I get your abstract submitted to Tizen Conf? or can you send it to me?03:33
Alison_ChaikenI'll email it to you.   No telling whether they will accept it or not, of course.03:34
*** xtcx has joined #mer03:34
*** xtcx has joined #mer03:34
sonachAlison_Chaiken: Thank you!  I heard from Intel Beijing that they are evaluting the IVI solution to choose from MeeGo and Tizen.03:35
sonachSince MeeGo IVI is good, so Intel is hesitating whether to turn to Tizen for IVI.03:36
Alison_ChaikenInteresting.   I would think they wouldn't have a choice!03:36
Alison_ChaikenI just heard VW is going to ship a Maemo car.03:36
Alison_ChaikenI'm sure that MeeGo cars are still coming.03:36
Alison_ChaikenI know Hawtai and Geely are Moblin!03:36
sonachYes. Maybe you are an expert of IVI?03:37
Alison_ChaikenI'm trying!03:37
Alison_ChaikenThe combination of law and technology is very interesting.03:38
*** thomashc has quit IRC03:38
Alison_ChaikenShould be an exciting couple of years in IVI.03:38
*** GeorgeH has quit IRC03:39
sonachAlison_Chaiken: We will be evaluting the VM solution on Mer. Maybe we will ask you some related questions:)03:47
Alison_ChaikenSure, although as I said, not a word from me about former employer!03:50
sonachYes, I can understand this:)03:52
Alison_ChaikenPackage-building VM is restored and tested and ready to build: time for dinner.03:55

Macerwatching children of dune07:42
Macerthere is supposed to be a new movie in 201407:43
Stskeepsmm, good miniseries07:43
Macerheh. i thought it was awful in comparison to the books07:44
Macerthey changed quite a bit07:44
Macerthe 2000 dune series was pretty awesome tho07:44
Macerat the very least much closer to the novel than children of dun which was somewhat of an abortion of dune messiah and children of dune07:45
Stskeepsit's always hard to make those books into movies07:46
Stskeepsthough i wouldn't mind seeing the books his son & kevin j anderson made into movies07:47
Macersome of them maybe.. it would make for a great tv series if you strung them all together in order07:51
Macerthe butlerian jihad series is pretty good07:52
Maceronce you get past children of dune it gets a little odd though07:53

Sage_Stskeeps: did you look the reviews with udev yet?09:34
StskeepsSage_: yes, even the rebase fails.. could i ask you to simply re-do the patch, clone from udev, just slap your changes on top and submit it?09:34
Stskeepsthen we are ready for pre-release content tomorrow09:34
Sage_ok, I can do that again09:35
Stskeepswe'll end with a pretty nice core release if so,
Sage_I'll fix the time as well so we could get that in09:37
Sage_my own typo :)09:37
Stskeepstomorrow we should look at enabling our own mesa for intel chips as well09:39
Stskeepsso we don't regress in that area now that i've pulled intel chipset gpu out of mesa09:39
Sage_was there any other small change that failed?09:42
Stskeepslike, that wasn't merged yet?09:43
Sage_uh, alsa-utils09:43
Sage_it might cause problems if we don't update that with alsa-libs09:43
Sage_it failed because it requires the newer alsa-lib09:43
Stskeepsok, so it depended on alsa-libs?09:43
Sage_rebuild should be quite fast09:43
Sage_we don't have any deps on that AFAIK09:43
Stskeepsi will re-check that09:44
Stskeepsalsa-utils sent for re-check09:45
Sage_udev resubmitted09:45
Sage_and timed.09:45

Sage_just so that we remember to do that09:49
Sage_haven't had much similar cases in the past09:49

Tofehi !13:22
Stskeepshi hi13:23
Stskeepsnote for the logs: mcts-qtgfx-tests really really need updating13:28
TofeI failed yesterday to set up Nemo on my tablet; which is quite frustrating, because plasma active works well. So what I'm wondering is: where does Mer end, and where does the UI begin ? isn't it right that it should be possible to have two UI on the same Mer base ?13:29
tommisStskeeps: i don't have a clue about most of the things i do13:30
tommisso it's ok13:30
TofeThere a uxlaunch in systemd's configuration: is it where the UI begins ?13:32
Tofe(maybe there are docs on this architecture ?)13:32
Stskeepsyes, uxlaunch launches the ux13:33
Stskeepsnemo is very difficult to get going on a device as it requires quite high level 3d13:34
TofeAt that stage, I don't care about performance :)13:35
Stskeepsit won't work without 3d13:35
TofeWell, I'm trying to see if the install I have right now of plasma active does have hw 3d, which isn't impossible13:36

vgradelbt do I need to do anything else after changing that required_packages line?14:28
lbtjust noted it as a likely cause14:28
lbtessentially mic is adding new packages to those in the ,ks14:28
lbtthose packages will then have deps resolved14:29

*** niqt has quit IRC15:48
Stskeepstimoph: so enabling something for testrunner lite hostbased execution, you should install eat on it, and the test suite?15:53
Stskeepson the DUT that is15:53
timophyeah. eat contains the sshkeys and does some other configuration15:53
timophit has host and device parts15:53
timophIt might need some updating for Mer15:54
Stskeepsa litle bit but not a lot15:54
Stskeepsand it's assumed that usb network is always up during testing?15:55
timophtr-lite should work though15:55

timophif you're planning to use those with mer there's a very good thing now compared to meego-qa times15:57
Stskeepsi'm a little unsure on the testing harness as it seems some tests require root, others need to start x etc15:57

*** jluisn has quit IRC15:59
timophless moving parts is better15:59
Stskeepsso i'm thinking we can make mer core plus hw adaptation plus eat/tests and testrunner running in sdk16:00

Stskeepscarsten@ideapad:~/test-mic$ sudo mic chroot test18:24
StskeepsError <creator>: Failed to find kernel module under test18:24
Stskeepsyeah, that's for sure a bug18:24
timophStskeeps: cool18:24
Stskeepspirut: want the honor of filing a bug on about this issue (MINT -> mic) or should i?18:25
pirutI can do that18:25
Stskeepswe'll walk through it in triage tomorrow18:26
pirutthanks for verifying!! I was really not sure if I had setup the env correctly18:26
Stskeepswhich reminds me i should send an email out about that..18:27

GeorgeHHiya Stskeeps!20:36
Stskeepswelcome :) so what brings you here to #mer ?20:37
GeorgeHSaw your channel on the freenode channel list, checked out your site, and liked what I saw :P20:37
Stskeepshehe, always a good start :)20:38
Stskeepsif you have any questions, don't hestitate to ask, else feel free to hang out here :)20:38
GeorgeHI'm interested in linux-in-car applications20:38
GeorgeHmy side project at work is something along those lines20:39
lbtGeorgeH: you're not alone20:39
GeorgeHthanks, will do20:39
*** tpn_ has joined #mer20:39
GeorgeHlbt, you too?20:39
lbtGeorgeH: there's a lot of interest in IVI and I want to track the requirements to make sure Mer meets them20:40
lbtI also have a personal interest from the old Empeg :)20:40
Stskeepsre IVI, thread is a good read on Mer and IVI20:40
GeorgeHheh; now that's old school20:40
Stskeeps(the entire thread)20:41
GeorgeHooh, thanks!20:41
lbtGeorgeH: oh yes ... but interestingly some of the guys involved in the original design/production are looking to put together a new version20:41
lbtand Stskeeps beat me to the thread :)20:41

lbtGeorgeH: are you looking at more complete manufacturer level IVI or at something more after-market20:43
Sage_Stskeeps: legacy leftover I guess. I think it has some uxlaunch related hacks at some point20:43
StskeepsSage_: .. i think i've had too much coffee today, what did i ask?20:44
GeorgeHthe main thing I'm interested in is a UX layer20:44
*** tpn_ is now known as tpn20:45
Sage_Stskeeps: uxlaunch dep on nokia-n900-configs20:45
Sage_err.. n950 configs20:45
GeorgeHmy company is at the R&D stage on this, so I've got free reign20:45
StskeepsSage_: ah20:45
GeorgeHwe're not planning on doing complete IVI; not yet at least20:45
GeorgeHno AV in the plans20:46
lbtare you free to outline the functional scope?20:46
StskeepsGeorgeH: at least it should be very easy getting started with UX layer stuff, we support even virtual machine development and putting in your own home screens etc20:47
Stskeeps(quite easily)20:47
GeorgeHlbt, essentially, yes20:48
lbtGeorgeH: great - I'd be really interested to hear about it20:48
*** dionet has quit IRC20:49
StskeepsGeorgeH: we also have homescreen toolkits centered around QML, so it's quite easy to do something shiny:
GeorgeHStskeeps:  wow, that's sweet!20:50
*** nsuffys has quit IRC20:51
GeorgeHlbt - right now, I'm doing R&D for future products to replace OEM radios20:51
GeorgeHthe idea is that the consumer can remove their OEM radio, add an aftermarket one, and have our product replicate any functionality that would otherwise be lost20:52
GeorgeHin most cars, that means handling door chimes, amp turn on, SYNC, etc. More recently, that has meant adding and/or driving displays.20:53
*** himamura has joined #mer20:53
GeorgeHcurrently, our highest end product is PIC32 based (80 MHz, 3.4" resistive touchscreen) - nothing to write home about20:54
lbtso is the magic in car-specific interfaces to access the signaling?20:55
GeorgeHyup. You need access to 1, sometimes 2x CAN bus at the minimum20:55
*** himamura_ has quit IRC20:56
GeorgeHsometimes a few hard digital lines, and, depending on the MFR, there are some different proprietary busses to deal with20:56
lbtso I guess you're exploring the boundary of traditional embedded systems and looking to the longer term manageability of the sw stack20:58
GeorgeHthe platform we are currently working on is not going to last long - it's as far as we can go without using an OS (the older guys there are dead-afraid of using an OS, especially a non RTOS)20:58
lbtgood  :)   because I'd say that's an area where Mer is aiming to improve things20:59
lbtRTOS? is it deep enough to need that?21:00
GeorgeHsome of the functions we perform require very precise timing21:00
*** ben1066 has quit IRC21:01
GeorgeHI don't know what's got the guys all worked up, though - I'm just going to spec a TI MSP430 to generate interrupts21:01
lbt(not that I recognise the device but I get what you mean)21:02
GeorgeHheh yeah, I don't think they'll be able to argue with a < $1 microcontroller21:02
GeorgeHMy target-hardware goal is roughly similar to this evaluation board:
GeorgeHany thoughts?21:04
Stskeepslooks sane, we have a nice armv7-a port21:05
* lbt lets Stskeeps look at that ... initial look says OK21:05
Stskeepsbe sure to verify their provided kernels exist at least at 2.6.32 or higher21:06
Stskeepsgraphics accelerator looks good too21:06
GeorgeHI believe their kernel is above 2.6.32; I'll make sure to verify that though. thanks21:07
lbtGeorgeH: we have some documentation on getting Mer up on a device
Stskeepswe've validated Mer quite extensively on omap3 as myself and others have been involved with MeeGo ARM on Nokia N900/N950/N921:09

GeorgeHlbt, sweet! thank you!21:11
*** thomashc has joined #mer21:11
Stskeepsi'm a little unsure of the linux kernel / userland support for that as i'm not into IVI but i'm sure there's people who know..21:11
dm8tbrGeorgeH: if you need to prototype cheap, look at the beaglebone, same SoC21:11
lbtGeorgeH: just yell with feedback on docs (or if you just need more info)21:11
GeorgeHI can't say I've seen it working, but from what I read, you access CAN the same way you use ethernet21:12
lbtI was wondering what middleware IVI sw exists in meego IVI - I'd like to see that moved to an IVI space on the c.obs21:13
lbtessentially a follow on action from that thread iirc21:13
GeorgeHdm8tbr: thanks; I considered buying one of those, but we already have the TI dev board for the chip ;)21:13
lbtGeorgeH: where are you based?21:13
GeorgeHNJ, USA21:13
Stskeepslbt: it wasn't terribly much from recollection21:13
lbtStskeeps: OK21:13
* Sage_ checks couple of package updates for mer21:13
Stskeepslbt: genivi compliance stuff like DLT and such21:14
lbtGeorgeH: Alison_Chaiken is on the west coast and I think is still into IVI too - also keep an eye open for vgrade21:14
dm8tbryeah, and the push for IVI based on linux is there21:15
dm8tbrI got some feedback too when talking about IVI and Android possibilities21:16
* Stskeeps ponders idly where all the ivi stuff on disappeared21:16
dm8tbrdoesn't genivi run their own OBS?21:17
Stskeepsthey do, but there used to be more ivi stuff21:17
Stskeepsthough i guess i might be remembering wrong21:17

Alison_ChaikenThe other wiki I've been updating today.21:33
GeorgeHaah, openice. heh, curious that I came across your site a few days ago while checking out mp3car for modding inspiration21:33
* Sage_ ponders what is the difference with cloog-ppl at and cloog that is in
*** ben1066 has quit IRC21:36
StskeepsSage_: CLooG-PPL is a library to generate code for scanning Z-polyhedra. In other words, it finds code that reaches each integral point of one or more parameterized polyhedra.21:36
Stskeepsif you don't understand that, i don't blame you..21:36
Stskeepsbut you're right, i'm a little hazy on that topic too21:37
Sage_Well I'm abit confused as the package name is cloog but it provides only cloog-ppl21:38
lbtI'm pretty sure it's a fancy name for hidden line removal :)21:39
