lilstevieI was just wondering if through any of your contacts at nvidia if you have heard any rumblings of armhf r15beta accel drivers01:18
lilsteviefor tegra obviously :)01:18
vgradeno, I noted a new release with update ABI but nothing hardfp01:20
lilsteviecause I'm sure you have seen but as of ubuntus 12.04 release that is now hf as well01:21
vgradeyes, I'm sure that will spur nVidia on to release hardfp again.01:21

StskeepsE-P: so, i have an idea..05:52
E-PStskeeps: go ahead05:52
StskeepsE-P: not sure if you know, but there's a couple of interesting features in RPM and OBS.. one is that test cases of packages are run in a seperate %check section of a package spec, the other is that it's possible to customize with RPM macros to run things pre/post that from RPM packaging point of view.. the third thing is that if you put results (rpmlint result, for instance) in RPMBUILD/OTHER, this gets extract-able through OBS05:54
StskeepsE-P: what if we could package up the source/binary tree of the %check time and at a later time run it on actual hardware?05:55
Stskeepsthrough those methods05:56
E-PStskeeps: for unittests that might be doable05:58
Stskeepsyeah, in fact, that's the ones i'm mostly interested in05:58
Stskeepsbecause they don't run reliably on cross compilation05:59
E-Pany idea how to transfer the source/binary tree to somewhere or can we create a own package out of that?05:59
Stskeepsi think we could possibly do a combination of 'build' on device and extracting it through OBS api06:00
Stskeepsbuild just sets up a chroot anyway06:01
E-Pyep, we should try p-o-c about that06:02
*** Alison_Chaiken has joined #mer06:03
E-PStskeeps: do you have any example where the %check is used?06:07
*** Alison_Chaiken has quit IRC06:08
*** pohly has joined #mer06:08
E-Pif the check fails, the built is marked fail as well?06:10
Stskeepsthis would make it async instead06:10
Stskeepsso we'd collect observations on a release06:10
Stskeeps== faster builds, too06:10

Aloz1Hello :)06:16
Stskeepswelcome :) So what brings you here to #mer ?06:16
E-PStskeeps: is your idea that the results from the device execution would effect somehow to the build or would it be a separated process?06:16
Aloz1I'm interested in the project06:16
E-PStskeeps: meaning that the %check doesn't effect to OBS build result if the tests are executed in the device06:17
StskeepsE-P: correct - moving %check to post-build phase, ie, when we validate a release06:17
E-PStskeeps: ok06:17
StskeepsAloz1: cool - if you have any questions, feel free to ask, or else feel free to hang out and learn :)06:17
StskeepsE-P: so for example we can do rpm functionality tests in the end06:18

*** arc_mat|tp has joined #mer06:44
Stskeepsarc_mat|tp: happen to know how the GPS is wired up on G9/06:46
arc_mat|tpStskeeps: UART106:46
Stskeepsok, and it speaks NMEA?06:46
arc_mat|tpnot at all06:46
arc_mat|tpit speaks AI206:46
Stskeepsah.. know of anything in open source that can interpret it?06:47
arc_mat|tpStskeeps: no, there is nothing, I'm afraid. AFAICT, there isn't even a public spec06:47
Stskeepsi guess that's what wilink vendor package provides then06:48
arc_mat|tpyes, thoug on the G9 the GPS is not part of wilink, it's a dedicated NL5550 from TI06:48
StskeepsAlison_Chaiken: ^06:50
arc_mat|tpwith some snooping and reverse engineering it could be made to work. not an easy task without docs, and you need to know quite a bit about GPS06:51
Alison_ChaikenThanks, Stskeeps, my plan was to plugin a USB GPS (which I already have) for testing, but maybe I won't be putting it away, after all.06:51
Stskeepsyeah, USB GPS seems like a sane option06:52
Stskeepsor bluetooth06:52
Alison_ChaikenYeah, BT is an idea, but I already have a USB one . . . and Scantool is Bluetooth already.06:52
Alison_ChaikenI'm not sure how well two BT devices close together will work?06:53
dm8tbrespecially as the n900 gpsd can not be reused as it talks to CMT not APE06:53
Alison_Chaikenvgrade naturally already built gpsd package for ARMv7l for Mer.06:53
Alison_ChaikenI started testing it yesterday.06:54
Alison_ChaikenRan without error with USB GPS, but didn't provide a fix.06:54
Alison_ChaikenSince usual independent way of testing GPS (gpsd-clients) is strongly tied to GTK+, I'm not sure yet which bit is broken.06:55
Stskeepscan't you connect up to the NMEA stream?06:55
Alison_ChaikenI'm optimistic that approach will work eventually.06:55
Alison_ChaikenLack of GPU support looms larger.06:55
Stskeepsbtw, the location infra on qt side is a bit quirky06:55
Stskeepslack of GPU support? i thought pvr worked on PA images06:55
Alison_ChaikenI'm quirky, so I sympathize.06:56
*** lamikr has joined #mer06:56
Alison_ChaikenNot clear.   Eglinfo runs on mine, but UI is slow and jerky and stuttery.06:56
Alison_ChaikenMy investigation of the situation is still in an early phase.06:57
Stskeepsok, what renderer does it say ?06:57
Alison_ChaikenThanks for detective work, though: good to know where I stand!06:57
Alison_ChaikenYou mean, what is eglinfo?06:57
Alison_ChaikenLet's see if I copied that output to $LOCALHOST.06:58

*** ZiQiangHuan has joined #mer07:17
Stskeepsok, so it doesn't use g9 acceleration07:18
Stskeepsthat's interesting07:18
Alison_ChaikenWell, eglinfo says it does, but es1_info says no.07:18
Alison_ChaikenI should compile es2_info and try that too.07:18
Stskeepssounds like bad symlinking07:19
Alison_ChaikenMaybe es2_info shows HW is working.07:19
Stskeepsls -l /usr/lib/libEGL*07:19
Alison_ChaikenI thought DRI2 was x86?07:19
Alison_ChaikenSo that wrong driver is invoked for ARM?07:19

arc_mat|tpretrofitting omapdrm and the pvr xorg stuff into our kernel proves to be difficult, again07:30

Sage__my kernel has that same patch07:33
Sage__+ bunch of patches on top of that of course07:33
Alison_ChaikenIt's worth pointing out that just because es2gears and es1_info are looking for DRI2, that doesn't mean KDE is.07:33

arc_mat|tpStskeeps: what is testrunner?09:29
vgradebyako, whas the mali question09:31
Stskeepsarc_mat|tp: is ui for it.. sshs into device and runs automated,semiautomatic or manual tests09:33
*** clopez has joined #mer09:33
arc_mat|tpStskeeps: a bit too much for production line testing09:33
arc_mat|tpbut of course a stripped down test count could help09:34
arc_mat|tpStskeeps: how does it control the DUT?09:34
Stskeepsarc_mat|tp: well, test on ui is just an example -- ssh through our test enablers09:35
arc_mat|tpwell for certain prod tests you need interaction with the tester, or how to check if the LCD is connected correctly and the buttons are working etc...09:36
Stskeepsthere are manual test types09:36
Stskeepsor semiautomatic09:37
Sage__arc_mat|tp, Stskeeps: After disabling HDMI stuff the screen goes blank quite soon and device doesn't boot far.
arc_mat|tpwe have a simple menu based production test software that runs on the device itself09:37
piruthas anyone experience with btrfs, I would like to bind mount a directory that is in a snapshot without first having to mount the snapshot ?09:38
Stskeepsnod, my point was there is a lot of different homemade frameworks09:38
Stskeepsfor this purpose09:38
arc_mat|tpSage__: that is all? hard hang after disabling VCXIO?09:39
Sage__arc_mat|tp: yes09:40
Sage__after that serial goes silent so I suspect hard hang there09:40
byakovgrade: mali_fbdev.c:mali_drm_open_master sends xf86DrvMsg about DRM OPEN with X_ERROR flag at the time when message is informative, shouldn't it be X_INFO ?09:40
arc_mat|tpand with hdmi enabled, how does a boot look like?09:41
Sage__arc_mat|tp: and with hdmi enabled it doesn't compile if I don't enable the omapfb as well09:42
arc_mat|tpSage__: yes, of course09:42
vgradebyako, thats one for the mali dev mailing list I think.09:43
arc_mat|tpSage__: if you suspect the disabling of VCXIO to be a problem, there is a call to "regulator_constraints_complete()" or something in the board start code that you could comment for testing09:43
vgradebyako what device are you working on? If you don't mind me asking09:43
byakovgrade: I'm not working on any device :) I'm still trying to bring up MeeGo HS UI09:45
byakovgrade: using snowball A1209:45
Sage__arc_mat|tp: ok, will try that. Have to go now though but I'll report back later.09:46
Sage__arc_mat|tp: meant regulator_has_full_constraints();09:47
arc_mat|tpyes, that one09:47

*** FACEFOX has quit IRC16:08
phaeronusing shuffle instead of rand will still change the meaning of max attempts16:08
lbtserver = ldap_servers[count % ldap_servers.length ]16:12
lbtassuming % is mod16:12
*** NIN101 has joined #mer16:12
*** FACEFOX has joined #mer16:13
phaeronmmm . wut ?16:14
lbtthat will retry max_attempts balanced evenly over all servers16:15
lbtalthough ... you know... this is really not that worthwhile16:15
*** NIN102 has joined #mer16:16
lbtif we do care then the sane thing to do is to have a list of 'active' LDAP servers and if one times out, restore it after X mins16:17
phaeronok , I wonder how to get upstream to review ? pull request from MerProject ?16:18
*** gimli has quit IRC16:18

phaeronnot sure16:26
phaeronI believe that's memcache is used for16:27
phaeronin memory persistent objects that have a lifetime16:27
lbt"a class variable on a controller and this will be carried from one request to the next as you might expect"16:28
lbtso yeah - the point is that dweebs would naivley expect that a variable is set from one req to the next16:29
phaeron"The catch is that this only applies to the singular instance of that controller"16:30
lbtyes, that's right16:30
*** zeq has quit IRC16:30
lbtwe don't really care16:30
lbtit's an ldap connection pool16:30
phaeronyeah but the correct way is to use memcache16:30
lbtno, it's not16:30
lbtmemcache is for storing persistent session data or truly persistent data16:31
lbtor typically to allow us to be lazy when doing queries :)16:31
lbtin this instance we're implementing connection pooling (which should set off warning bells)16:31
phaeronit's not truly persistent , it has a lifetime (can be very long) and will disappear if memcache is restarted16:32
lbtyes. and memcache is a cache, not a store16:32
lbtso step back ... what are we actually doing?16:33
phaeronwasting time :D16:33
lbtA: storing hints about which LDAP servers are down16:33
lbtif we lose the hint list then ... we assume they're all up16:33
lbtand it costs us a try to recreate the hint list16:33
*** FACEFOX has quit IRC16:34
lbtnot worth memcaching in order to store across all threads16:34
lbtjust make it a class var and we're fine16:34
phaeronI also wanted to put the require block in the class but wasn't sure if it will work16:35
*** FACEFOX has joined #mer16:36
lbtyeah ...  that should be at a higher level - but it's only important if LDAP is :on16:37

*** andre900 has quit IRC16:52
phaeronand using modulus would mean that in the good case the same server will get hammered while others will be idle16:55
phaeronanyway I just need to test this before submitting upstream16:56

vgradecan you drill down into the groups18:51
Stskeepsthat'll come later, but with external links18:52
CosmoHillmy laptop visited 1970 and now some apps are jibbing out18:52
vgradethats the sort of thing18:54
Stskeepsi'm intentionally making it high level in wiki page, and then giving people guide how to use the tool18:54
vgradethese are much more infromative than the more trad layer diagrams which don't show the interactions18:54

*** arcean_ has quit IRC19:08
Stskeepsit does indeed show a direction that we're moving in, yes19:08
Stskeepslike, the linux distro mindset19:09
Stskeepsie, it's no longer about massive repositories of packages19:09
Stskeepsit's about shit that actually works19:09

*** zeq1 has quit IRC19:10
ali1234no... is there a link?19:10
ali1234i think that teletype picture is a bit unfair :)19:11
Stskeepsit was meant to be :)19:12
Stskeepsin my notes i had it marked down as "unneccesarily provocative" :)19:12
ali1234most of the arguments yesterday were about how the new stuff specifically doesn't work in that configuration19:12
Stskeepswhich specific discussion are you talking about, btw?19:12
Stskeepsthere's been some integrated core discussions around the place19:12
ali1234well i only saw the comments posted on gregkh' google+19:13
ali1234but i figure it was mostly the same stuff getting repeated19:13
Stskeepsah, yeah19:13
ali1234the stuff about integrating udev and systemd more tightly with the kernel to create a standardized base19:13
*** smoku has joined #mer19:14
Stskeepsthey just have to be careful.. world doesn't move as fast as kernel19:14
vgradeStskeeps, work of art19:14
Stskeepsand most importantly, not everything is x8619:15
vgradeinteresting to see the mass of interactions in base essentials19:15
Stskeepsyeah.. base essentials is a mess19:15
Stskeepssome patterns will eventually emerge from there19:15
vgradeis that why its difficult to bootstrap things19:16
Stskeepspart of it, but that's build-time architecture19:16
Stskeepsi have some ideas towards that but it's 2-3 months ahead19:17

smokufixed.  thanks19:19
smokuStskeeps: anything in particular?19:21
Stskeepsno, just showing :)19:22
smokuoh.  looks good :)19:22
Stskeepsthere'll be a lot of Group: changes to base packages (not practical implication) and hopefully we'll be able to encourage people to do sane architecture for their UIs and hardware adaptations on top as well19:23

IanWizard-CloudOk, I'm back.23:40
IanWizard-CloudBeen away, busy :(23:41
IanWizard-CloudI have a question, and I'm just not sure..  I've always worked with Android, and built things, like kernels, using CodeSourcery's  cross compiler / toolchain.  The time has come that I need to get off my ass, and setup my own toolchain.  My friend is telling me to use the Android NDK, and bionic, but I'm not certain that I trust him.  Suggestions / guidance would be greatly appreciated.23:44
vgradeIanWizard-Cloud, what are you planning to build? Mer used eglibc so not compatible with bionic23:48
vgradeMer SDK allows you to setup cross toolchains in a scratchbox2 setup23:49
vgradefor i486/i586/arm(hard/soft float)/mips23:49
IanWizard-Cloudvgrade: atm I'm building a small kernel / system, separate from both android, and mer, then I'll start working on porting mer.23:49
IanWizard-Cloudvgrade: I've been told (though I admitedly haven't ever tried), that I can use both bionic, and libc (or elibc) on the same system.23:50
IanWizard-CloudThis is one of those areas that I know enough, to know that I don't know enough :P23:51
vgradeIanWizard-Cloud I don't think thats a good design23:52
IanWizard-CloudI tend to agree23:52
vgradeIf you are not targetting andriod I'd stay clear of Bionic23:53
IanWizard-Cloudvgrade: supposedly bionic has optomizations for the qualcomm chipset.23:54
IanWizard-Cloudhere's my big question.23:54
IanWizard-CloudIf say.. I build mer, with elibc, all of the repos that I use will need to be built with elibc.23:55
IanWizard-CloudSo then wouldn't we want to use libc for everything, and be able to use all of the (using debian as an example), debian repos for arm23:56
IanWizard-Cloudyes, that's my real confusion I guess. isn't it smarter to use libc for everything?23:58
vgradeyou can build what you need from debian23:58
vgradewe are targetting smaller embedded mobile devices23:58
