lbthehe - no worries ... I know you're busy08:36

Stskeepslbt: any pre-releases are no-go right now, something backfired08:38
lbtStskeeps: OK08:38
lbtStskeeps: I moved imbackup ... just figuring a way to verify it08:38

Stskeepsmerreleases is ssh for rsync of releases, and exported on rsync and www08:39
lbt*nod* ... it has git too08:40
lbtnot sure how that gets in there - just rsync'ed from ?08:40
Stskeepspackages-git is gerrit rsyncing to it08:40
lbtgood - so that can move but we need to tweak gerrit08:41
lbtwell, it's all copied so rsync should be easy now08:41

Bostikcoming up09:13
niqti havew reinstalled the sdk, now if i run osc ls i have: "Server returned an error: HTTP Error 401: Authorization Required"09:17
lbtniqt: that typically means it's not using your ~/.oscrc09:17
lbtniqt: can you verify that when you are in the SDK you can :  ls -laF ~/.oscrc09:18

lbtBostik: what is  etc/rpm/platform inside the target?09:31
*** himamura has quit IRC09:31
Bostiklbt: no such file, which sounds a bit odd (the bug only referred to 7hl which I don't need here)09:34
Bostikoh, target...09:35
lbtthe file isn't normally needed - it's an override for rpm09:35
Bostikright, no file there either09:35
lbtI'm checking in case you followed the instructions :)09:35
lbtdamn :)09:35
BostikI followed them, and truly read everything to figure out what's necessary09:35
lbtso you skipped:     echo -n "armv7hl-meego-linux" > etc/rpm/platform09:36
lbtwhich is kinda sane :)09:36
lbtso can you try with armv7l - which .... doesn't make sense09:36
Bostikneeded to adapt for 7l case?09:36
Bostikwill do, momento uno09:37
lbtyou'll need to rerun the rebuilddb and ref --force09:37
Bostik... -n ?09:37
Bostikreally? if no such file?09:37
lbtoh the -n is no-newline09:37
Bostikyeah, I know09:38
Bostiksounds a bit ... fragile if that really can't deal with trailing newline :)09:38
lbtthis *is* rpm09:38
lbtand I just didn't edit the upstream instructions09:38
Bostikzypper ref --force gives the same error09:39
Bostikand installing glibc-devel errors out again in exact same way09:39
lbtthat's not a problem09:39
lbtOK ... so another one09:40
Bostikhmmm... an idea09:40

*** toscalix has joined #mer10:41
lbtso is the typo in the wiki or did you do it?10:41
Bostikthis stupid keyboard occasionally misses a stroke when certain sequences are done rapidly10:42
Bostikapparently "platform" is one of those, 't' was eaten10:42
lbtyeah, mine too - some keys in the middle - y/7 for me :)10:42
Bostik'y' in particular, yes (I always find myself having written "waland")10:43
lbtso that platform file is needed for arm7l too - odd10:44

BostikI'll tell you shortly, now a meeting11:01
*** ScriptRipper has joined #mer11:05
*** ScriptRipper has joined #mer11:05
Bostiklbt: right, one of our guys needs to do a very rapid rebuild-hack-redeploy -round for a piece of software which takes *ages* to build in an OBS cycle; the results have to be tested on target device, so I need to instruct him and his team on how to use mer-sdk + sb2 to get this done so that their development history is not thrashed by any steps in this cycle11:10
Bostikif I can cut the ..-hack-..-hack-.. cycle turnover time down to minutes, he can use this11:10
lbt*nod* - I'm really keen to see how and where the sdk/sb2 stuff is useful11:11
BostikI'll provide a cleaned up guide to monster hacks once I know how this is done :)11:12
lbtthe goal is to do something like "osc setup_target <packageA> <packageB> <packageC>"11:14
lbtthat will pull OBS build-deps down and zypper in to the target for *all* A,B,C11:14
lbtthen you can hack on the target with all 3 tarballs - although there are issues with make install on A before being able to build B11:15
lbtanyhow .... I'm in the bug triage talking to myself at the moment ...11:15

mdfe_lbt: I have a question to sb2 init stuff11:29
lbtsure ...11:29
lbt(just doing bug triage so I'm a touch laggy)11:29
mdfe_I tried to build a pvr-kernel and by this I need the sources of my device kernel11:29
mdfe_then I wonder why my kernel sources cannot found by pvr-kernel11:30
lbtthey're not in $HOME are they11:31
mdfe_then I detected the kernel sources are installed on another path as I packaged it11:31
mdfe_before /usr/kernel/.....11:32
lbtyeah - we need to make this easier...11:32
mdfe_and installed to /target/usr/kernels/....11:32
lbtI want to have a simple "these directories have src - make them work properly in the target"11:33
lbtdoes the link make sense?11:34
lbt#topic - qmf should be updated to latest upstream11:34
mdfe_its voodoo11:34
lbtbasically, yes11:34
mdfe_I do not like voodoo11:34
mdfe_do you got what I mean?11:35
mdfe_I package source files and thery are installed in a diffenrent directory11:36
mdfe_no big deal, but it took a while to figure out what going wrong11:37
lbtlet me double check here11:37
lbtyou have an SDK with the kernel source unpacked into /usr/kernels/11:37
mdfe_please see
mdfe_even in obs11:38
mdfe_thats it11:39
*** toscalix has quit IRC11:39
mdfe_the stuff is stored in /target/usr/scr/kernels11:39
lbtno, I think it isn't - and that's the problem11:40
mdfe_but the package content is /usr/src/kernels11:40
mdfe_imho its related to SB2 voodoo11:41
lbtyes, it is11:41
lbtessentially it means that code that installs t11:41
mdfe_I will write a comment in this bug11:41
lbto /usr/src won't work11:41
lbtbut ... you shouldn't be doing that anyway ..... I don't think11:42
mdfe_so what is right way do package kernel source stuff?11:42
lbtbut that's community driven11:43

*** Timmy has quit IRC15:09
Stskeeps(i'm based 5km from the venue)15:09
swisstomcatexcellent .. let's meet up in any case15:09
* Stskeeps puts it on calendar15:10
bigbluehatglad you guys are meeting up :) Sad I can't be a fly on the wall there. ;)15:11
swisstomcatwe can report afterwards15:11
Stskeepsmoving back to grande though, we're right now mostly prototyping and seeing what can be done - with Mer we can quite easily prototype on a wide variety of devices, it's 'just' a UX on top anyway15:12
*** rippel has joined #mer15:13
Stskeepsthe idea is to end up with a simple understandable runtime where it's easy to move from doing for example html5 apps to be doing this kind of 'futuristic' experiences15:13
Stskeepsutilizing same tools and methods15:13
Stskeepsthough i think webos is also doing a bit of the same :)15:14
swisstomcatquick prototyping is very good15:14
swisstomcatso "mer core" already exists as an installable thing?15:14
Stskeepssure, want to see what it's capable of?15:14
swisstomcatsure .. what do i need?15:15
Stskeepsyoutube ;)15:15
Stskeepsjust to understand: mer's a core, we don't contain UI or hardware adaptation, you mix core+hardware adaptation and you get a bootable image, you mix core+hardware adaptation+ui and you have a device with UI15:15
bigbluehatswisstomcat: thing #mer+Nyx+webOS :)15:16
swisstomcatso mer core is linux+?15:16
swisstomcator more?15:16
Stskeepsmer core is basically a common userland, suited towards mobile usage15:17
swisstomcat(i see that plasma active uses mer?)15:17
swisstomcatso linux+mobile userland15:17
swisstomcatwhat does it do in terms of a RIL?15:17
Stskeepswe're ofono based at the moment15:17
swisstomcat(because that's usually a pain point)15:17
Stskeepsmany of us come from meego originally15:17
Stskeepsbut we're not tied to it15:18
swisstomcati see15:18
Stskeeps is Nemo, on N900 hardware adaptation (handset UI)15:18
Stskeepser, on N950, i mean15:18
swisstomcatso .. why is b2g not build on top of mer for example?15:18
Stskeepsthere's people already running b2g on top of mer :)15:18
Stskeepsbut if you want to know, because they wanted to get quickly demoable stuff so they made their gonk/android derived stuff15:19
Stskeepsso they could leverage hardware adaptations from android15:19
*** rippel has quit IRC15:19
swisstomcathmm, ok15:19
swisstomcathow much hardware adaption is available for mer?15:20
Stskeepsmer's not just code though, we're also systems, for example QA tools, automated image builds, build farm software, et15:20
swisstomcatyeah, also important15:20
Stskeepsthere's a fair bit, incl one on HP Touchpad, but it's not fully functional15:21
swisstomcatoh really?15:21
Stskeepsyeah, it's on the list there15:21
swisstomcatthis is all new to me .. i guess tizen and b2g are getting all the love these days15:21
Stskeepsqualcomm is always a bit of a pain for anything that's done in the open15:21
Stskeepsbut if you have a company and ability to do NDAs and contracts with your chip vendor, mer also works with that15:21
swisstomcatso where would i find the touchpad info?15:22
Stskeepshrm, thought i pasted the url15:22
*** rippel has joined #mer15:24
Stskeepsthere's also
swisstomcatmaybe i can do some experiments on the touchpad15:24
*** harbaum has quit IRC15:24
swisstomcati also have an archos G8 8015:24
Stskeepswe have adaptation for G9 at least, i can't recall the story of G815:25
Stskeepsbut anyway, many of these adaptations aren't really official, but the same methods are those you'd use if you were a company and making a device with mer15:25
lbtswisstomcat: a key difference between Mer and many other distros is that we're very much vendor-oriented whilst also being vendor-agnostic;  so sure, we provide code - but almost *more* important is that we're structured to support product development against Mer15:26
swisstomcatoops, i meant G9 8015:27
swisstomcati understand15:27
lbtswisstomcat: In the same way you take the linux kernel and use it in a product - you'd take the Mer software and systems stack and use them too15:27
swisstomcatwebOS is heading a similar direction i think15:27
Stskeepsah, G9 should be able to run mer quite well, waiting for the SDE to be published15:27
lbtswisstomcat: We've done a lot of work on developing things like OBS and other systems to support automation15:28
swisstomcatwhich is a big part of the picture15:28
swisstomcatbut usually you don't see15:28
lbtafter all - whilst we may build code for Mer - we build systems and tools for many other distro targets!15:28
lbtswisstomcat: yes, indeed15:29
swisstomcatthis whole "lack of collaboration" stskeeps is talking about is becoming more and more apparent to me15:29
swisstomcateveryone working on the same building blocks15:29
lbtswisstomcat: and you probably realise that much of the systems stuff for product development comes from time-served in Nokia making s few devices15:29
lbtwe were really pleased when MeeGo didn't invent their own build system15:30
swisstomcatand now nokia is quite clearly jumping ship in this area15:30
lbtswisstomcat: they are indeed publicly jumping ship15:30
swisstomcatgoing away from qt/meegoo and the like (and also open source it seems)15:30
Stskeepswell, qt not so much15:30
Stskeepsqt-project is impressively active15:30
Stskeepsmeego is stone dead, for sure15:31
swisstomcatbut "open technology" in general15:31
swisstomcatit seems15:31
swisstomcatwindows phone doesn't seem like a good "cultural" fit15:31
swisstomcatfor a company like nokia15:31
Stskeepsyeah.. well, let's see what happens for them15:32
lbtswisstomcat: well, I wouldn't hold my breath for a return to the maemo days - but their current strategy is proving a challenge15:32
Stskeepsmeego was good in a way that a lot of development tools and techniques got pushed to the open15:32
alteregoIt's not over until the large women sings.15:32
lbtyep - and we just wandered along and kept them alive :)15:32
lbtswisstomcat: so you're part of the hp crowd?15:33
*** tommis has joined #mer15:33
swisstomcatlbt: yeah .. i work for webOS developer relations15:33
lbtheh - I guess I have a similar role in Mer :)15:33
lbt'vendor relations'15:33
swisstomcatsounds good :)15:33
swisstomcatso we should keep in touch15:34
lbtbut it's more about keeping an eye on mer and making sure we stay vendor oriented15:34
Stskeepsprobably derailing a bit, lbt, so where did imbackup get moved to_15:34
lbtso trying to track how mer is used and look for issues that affect vendors or areas we need to resolve15:34
Stskeepslbt: there's one failure left in mips arch (libpciaccess didn't compile!) and after that i think we can make a prerelease15:35
Stskeepswonder how that slipped by the build checks15:35
lbtmips isn't ci'ed ?15:35
*** rippel_ has joined #mer15:35
Stskeepsit must not have been when i evaluated libpciaccess upgrade15:36
lbtdid you add it?15:36
Stskeepsi added it for good measure at some point yes15:36
* lbt crosses it off his list15:36
*** bergie has joined #mer15:36
* Stskeeps ponders if tizen talk results come today15:37
lbtswisstomcat: I guess webos is pretty much sorted when it comes to build systems? But what's the story from WebOS when I want to build a device? in terms of what do I setup internally?15:37
swisstomcatthe build system is far from sorted out15:38
lbtreally ....15:38
swisstomcatthey're working to upgrade to a better system15:38
*** rippel has quit IRC15:39
lbtin that case we really *should* talk15:39
Stskeepslbt: it seems to me they're taking a bit of a top down approach15:39
swisstomcator get you in touch with the correct people15:39
Stskeepsenyo framework -> nyx HAL -> core15:39
swisstomcati think they're using OE for historical reasons15:39
lbtswisstomcat: *nod*15:39
swisstomcatso yocto might be a possibility15:39
Stskeepsi wouldn't be surprised to see a yocto rebase myself15:40
Stskeepsheh, was just writing that when you said it15:40
lbtyeah - but it's painful for real product work15:40
Stskeepsit's really a challenge to adapt new development tools / breaking your team's habits15:40
swisstomcatmaybe i should connect you to some guys in engineering?15:40
swisstomcatto talk about build stuff15:40
alteregoYeah, look at us maemo folks, how many people did we lose from maemo -> meego? :)15:40
swisstomcati don't really understand most of it :)15:41
Stskeepsalterego: well, that was partially stubbornness to accept that hildon-gtk was stone dead..15:41
lbtswisstomcat: you can tell them that 3 of us manage all of Mer's infra and build systems for 7 architectures15:41
Stskeepson a 210eur/month infra budget15:41
alteregoStskeeps: hildon, .deb vs .rpm, etc, etc.. :)15:41
Stskeepsalterego: yeah.. that too15:42
lbtswisstomcat: high efficiency -> low cost -> competitive15:42
Stskeepsalterego: i think things would have looked different if qml had arrived earlier15:42
alteregoIndeed, QML was a bit of a curve ball15:42
alteregoWasn't really expecting it.15:42
Stskeepslbt: i had to revert sb2 upgrade, the new fakeroot caused a stall in build-compare, BTW15:44
Stskeepslbt: i think we'll make the defining feature of this prerelease the new glibc15:44
Stskeepsas it requires a bit of proper testing against vendor images15:44
*** Timmy_ has quit IRC15:45
Stskeepslbt: how does 20120504 sound as expected next release?15:49
Stskeepslbt: how does 20120405 sound i mean ;)15:49
lbt0405 :)15:49
Stskeepsbecause then we can get proper testing going and qt5 reviewed properly15:51
Stskeepsbbl walking at the beach15:52
swisstomcatnice :)15:53

Stskeepsswisstomcat: wife insisted i took a small vacation since i'm between contract so trying out polish coast for some days :)16:39
Stskeepsswisstomcat: my belief is that only way you could pull it off is by a bunch of SME's getting together to make interesting products, especially considering how approachable it is to get ODM's to make devices these days16:40
Stskeepsie, work together on common parts, differentiate on own qualities16:40

shadeslayervgrade: back?18:39
* shadeslayer found something interesting, but is not sure if it's relevant18:39
vgradeok, so your on ASUS transformer?18:44
shadeslayervgrade:;a=summary << found this18:46
shadeslayerand was discussing it with the folks over at #asus-transformer and they said that it should work18:47
shadeslayerbut they haven't tried it themselves18:47
vgradeI would get something up on sw raster first then we can start with matching tegra kernel and userspace drives18:48
vgradeif we start with thet we will be on a hiding to nothing18:48
vgradeso you have some kernel source from ASUS18:49
*** domedan has quit IRC18:49
shadeslayervgrade: those are the android kernel sources18:49
*** domedan has joined #mer18:49
vgradeand you have access to nvflash to the device?18:49
vgradeandriod kernels work fine once you set the right options :)18:49
shadeslayernope, I have CWM installed which allows me to flash the kernel and the rootfs onto the required partitions18:50
*** ALo has quit IRC18:51
vgradeok , rebuild the kernel with these options, and patches,
* shadeslayer looks18:51
vgradethen set your commandline to set root=/dev/mmcblkxpx or whatever your sdcard is recognised as.  You can find that out from dmesg from an andriod booted system using adb18:52
shadeslayeryep, know that already18:52
vgradeand init=/bin/systemd18:53
vgradeyou will need to edit the fstab on the G9 image to suit18:53
RaYmAnvgrade: sadly, no nvflash yet on newer tf101s :(18:53
RaYmAnit's something you really miss, lol18:53
shadeslayerdidn't realize you were here as well :P18:54
*** Timmy has joined #mer18:54
*** Timmy has joined #mer18:54
Sage_vgrade: know anyone that have booted Mer on Galaxy Nexus (Omap4)18:54
vgradeRaYmAn, but at least they opened the bl18:54
shadeslayeryou guys are like omniscent in all the ARM channels :P18:54
shadeslayervgrade: only on the prime18:54
RaYmAn I've idled here for like a year , lol18:54
shadeslayervgrade: any news on the Pi's btw? It's been like forever18:55
*** domedan has quit IRC18:55
vgradeSage_, no, not that one, does it have open bl. Should be doable if so.18:55
*** domedan has joined #mer18:56
*** Timmy_ has quit IRC18:56
Sage_vgrade: Well I tried to boot one but wasn't able to get anything to the screen during boot so no idea what goes on there18:56
*** gabrbedd_ has joined #mer18:57
vgradeSage_, yea rather difficult with no boot screen or bootlog18:58
shadeslayervgrade: note that I've never built a kernel before btw :P18:59
vgrademy workflow with andriod stuff is to get a boot.bin from the device, crack it open to get kernel, initrd, commandline18:59
vgradeshadeslayer, if I can do it18:59
shadeslayeryeah, I'll figure it out eventually :D19:00
*** ALoGeNo has joined #mer19:00
*** ALoGeNo has joined #mer19:00

*** gabrbedd has quit IRC19:00
*** domedan has quit IRC19:00
*** domedan__ has joined #mer19:00
vgradethen replace the kernel with one with the right OPTIONS, flash back , it should still boot19:00
vgradethen change the commandline to suit with root= init=19:01
*** domedan__ is now known as domedan19:01
vgradecxl000 has a good package for logging things with minimal systems19:01
*** harbaum has joined #mer19:02

vgradeI'm guessing it will fly19:11
vgradeeven without gles19:11
RaYmAnheh, yeah19:11
RaYmAngles should be possible too though :)19:12

*** shadeslayer_ is now known as shadeslayer19:13
RaYmAnit's kind of nice in some ways19:13
RaYmAnbut in so many other ways, it really is just t2 with twice as many cores19:13
Stskeepsi need to get a dual core ARM at some point :P19:13
* Stskeeps is still stuck in singlecore19:13
RaYmAndon't you have pandaboard?19:13
Stskeepsi could probably have had one thrown in my neck but i said i already had too much equipment19:13
RaYmAnjust make them send stuff you don't have room for to me then ;)19:14
Stskeepsi'll probably be cleaning out my closet at some point and pass around to people :P19:14

vgradeRaYmAn, what you running on it?19:20
RaYmAnstock ics for now19:20
shadeslayervgrade: uh, what are the required shell parameters that I need to export to get cross compile working?19:20
vgradedepends on which one19:21

*** tilgovi has quit IRC19:22
vgradenot much, I have code sourcey, sec for link to my commandlines19:22

RaYmAnvgrade: is it not using a ramdisk?19:32
* RaYmAn isn't that familiar with Mer yet sadly :/19:32
Stskeepsif we can, we avoid ramdisks, they take up precious bootup time speed19:33
RaYmAnyeah, definitely :) Most embedded stuff just tend to use it in my experience19:33
zumbishadeslayer: $ gcc -dumpspecs | grep multilib_defaults -A219:33
