alteregoStskeeps: how's it going?00:29
Stskeepsrandom parts of my body falling sleep :P00:29
Stskeepsasleep00:29
Stskeepsstarted at 4am this morning in warsaw00:29
alteregoEesh00:29
Stskeepssoon going out for dinner with peeps who are here00:30
alteregoI've started working on removing libmeegotouch from mcompositor btw00:30
Stskeepsok00:31
alteregoIt's shockingly well put together ;)00:31
Stskeepsi'm a little too tired to commit to it more than the evaluation though at this moment00:31
Stskeepsbut if you see it as a good idea..00:31
alteregoSo the work to implement  declarative based compositor, and then hopefully a HTML5 based compositor is relatively straight forward.00:31
Stskeeps:nod:00:31
alteregoThat's okay.00:32
Stskeepsthe decorator being the key problem00:32
Stskeepsas it makes a dep on entire compositor for MTF00:32
alteregoI'm kinda bored at the moment anyway and fancied the challange.00:32
Stskeeps:nod:00:32
Stskeepswhich is kinda irritating considering mcompoisotr isnt half bad00:33
alteregoAlready built libdecorator, attempting to build libmcompositor, then it's just mdecorator and mcompositor which will be replaced with declarative-decorator and declarative-compositor.00:33
alteregoYeah, the code is really nice.00:33
*** kavurt has joined #mer00:33
alteregoIt's almost like it was designed with the idea of replacing those parts with plain qt or qml based components ..00:34
alteregolibmcompositor has compiled successfully. So now all I need to do is make the qml counterparts of the decorator and the compositor :)00:35
Stskeepsheh, well, maybe plain qt00:35
Stskeepsqml hwever.. well, that was an interesting turf war00:35
alteregoThinking I might do a w00t and fork with a funky non-sensical name.00:36
alteregoLike .. "Eyeliner"00:37
alteregoThough, that's actually a pretty good name ..00:37

*** KaIRC has joined #mer09:18
*** Tofe has joined #mer09:21
TofeHello !09:21
TofeI wondered: is there a Mer build for Tegra2/ARM that would be based on kernel 3.0 ?09:25
TofeI saw that the N9 build is still based on 2.6, and that the i586-vm one is 3.0 based. So I guess the switch is already managed, or at least not very hard to do09:25
smokuTofe: kernel is not a part of Mer. it belongs to HA. HAs are free to choose whatever kernel version they wish.09:27
Tofe"HA" ?09:27
smokuHardware Adaptation09:28
smokua running system consists of: HA (hardware dependend) + Mer Core + UX (user experience)09:29
TofeOk, I see. That's good :) The reason is, I'd like to try to build up a plasma active (or nemo mobile, I don't know yet) image for my tegra2 tablet, using the newest Linux4Tegra kernel available.09:29
smokuMer delivers only the middle of the sandwitch09:29
Tofeyes, I just didn't know about HA, the rest is ok09:29
smokuwhich tablet?09:30
TofeIconia Tab A50009:30
smoku(as I'm in the process of doing the same for A100)09:30
TofeI've already tried with the plasma active image from vgrade, it worked fine09:30
smokulook at XDA A500 section09:31
smokuthey've been pretty successful at running Ubuntu on A50009:31
smokuyou should be able to reuse their work for HA09:31
Tofeyes, they've got ICS rooted with an unlocked bootloader, it's quite interesting09:31
Tofethat's how I did boot Mer as a recovery, keeping Android installed09:32
smokusame here. custom boot.img booting Mer of sdcard09:33
TofeBooting Ubuntu is nice, but it not really tablet-friendly. So I'm more looking for a Maemo/Meego alike OS09:33
smokuyou should be able to use their kernel + boot image as HA for Mer09:33
smokujust replace the user-space image09:34
TofeYes, I think so too. The big question being the hardware acceleration/support.09:34
TofeMy goal would be to have wifi and GLES working; GPS would be a plus, but it's not necessary for me.09:35
smokuthis just got better. nvidia released new linux4tegra package last month - you have everything that is needed there. including opengl drivers09:35
TofeYes, it looks good :)09:35
TofeHowever I'll have to check if the kernel proposed by the xda guys is the same as the one from nvidia, because it doesn't seem like we have the source of the nvidia drivers...09:36
Tofebut maybe it's not a problem, and only X matters here.09:36
smokuyou need to use the acer kernel to have the hardware support09:37
smokuor port the board to nvidia's kernel09:37
smokuyour choice ;-)09:37
Tofealso, fastboot is interesting: it looks like we can give arguments to the kernel we launch -- I'm thinking about root=xxx09:37
smokuyeah. I wish I coud have the unlocked bootloader on A10009:38
TofeThey haven't found yet how to do it ? I would have thought it would be very close to A50009:39
Tofe(although the procedure for A500 seems... well... user-unfriendly)09:40

TofeThere is still a little piece I didn't catch: what is Mer:Core ? Is does look like it contains the kernel. Or does Mer:Core only have a sense is an "adaptation" ? So Mer:Core would be a part of Mer, but it is not implemented by the Mer team ?09:57

Stskeepsalterego: how did the qml decorator stuff pan out?10:47
alteregoAll the other components are built now without any meegotouch deps. I was planning on starting to implement a basic qml decorator today.10:50
alteregoBut I did get the compositor running in Xephyr on my development laptop :)10:50
Stskeeps:nod:10:50
Stskeepsprobably easier on device, given actual working DRI10:50
alteregoSo my next steps are get basic QML decorator, then start with device hacking10:51
alteregoWhat do you think of the name "Eyeliner" :)10:51
Stskeepssure, why not10:51
alteregoGoing with w00ts cosmetics convention ;)10:52
Stskeepsok, why does my mind crave beef at 4am in the morning10:54
Stskeepsthis can't possibly be healthy10:54
alteregoBut yeah, a complete decorator will be a bit of work. especially as complete as the meegotouch decorator. I need to get bits out of meegotouch for orientation handling, and otber device states too.10:55
Stskeepsinitially even a 'hey, frame this window' is ok, just to get rid of that bloody dep10:56
Stskeepsas with swipeish gestures, you don't really need decoration10:56
*** dionet has joined #mer10:58
Stskeepswhich makes me wonder how much perf it costs android to have soft buttons10:59
alteregoYeah, though having a decorator does mean we can implement some neat things11:00
Stskeeps:nod:11:00
alteregoAnd run non components based apps and have them show a task bar.11:01
Stskeepsurgh, yeah.. the @%@% systemui11:01
alteregoI also have some ideas for ux design with regards to window decorations.11:02

TermanaStskeeps, (re: beef) maybe because it's afternoon back in Poland? :p11:04
StskeepsTermana: yeah.. but even 1pm is weird time for beef11:05
alteregoNot on a Sunday!11:06
alteregoThat's Sunday roast time11:06
*** sandroandrade has joined #mer11:06
alteregoThough probably a British thing ;)11:06
alteregoMmmm, roast beef and yorkshire pudding...11:07
alteregoThink I'll make sure my version of the compositor handles orientation properly. Harmattan is a bit glitchy when you use it in landscape mode...11:09
alteregoLike the swiping out from one landscape app to another app in landscape causes far too many orientation changes ..11:10

Alison_ChaikenThere are CC machines at BART, although it's complicated.17:22
Alison_ChaikenYou can buy a ticket with credit card, but if you don't have enough credit left on the ticket when you go to exit the station, you're supposed to "Add Value" with cash.17:23

juliusaugustuswell couldn't that model be for open source adreno drivers. A purely no commercial no vender model. Mostly for enthusiasts.20:40
Stskeepssure, but what about open source hardware vendors? :)20:40
Stskeepsthey can't afford to be hit with lawsuits20:41
Stskeepsthink vivaldi for instance20:41
juliusaugustusthen they got to distrubute the devices with closed drivers and allow users to replace them20:41
Stskeepsyes.. and what did i just say about the drivers not existing? :)20:41
Stskeepsso we're back at the problem20:42
juliusaugustusI guess drivers will always be a nightmare20:42
Stskeepseither way, mer doesn't contain hardware adaptations, they're external to the project as to make it as possible to make mer as open as i can20:42
*** CosmoHill has joined #mer20:42
Stskeepser, we can20:42
Stskeepsand let hw adaptations have their own choices and schedules20:43
vgradejuliusaugustus , I have struggled in this area since starting with MeeGo a couple of years ago.  The best we can expect is the SoC vendors to keep current with kernel, xorg and toolchain versions and provide blobs20:45
juliusaugustusthen how is mer in terms of feature completeness20:45
vgradejuliusaugustus, funnily enough the best I'm seeing at the moment is nVidia with Tegra 2/3 SoC's20:45
*** kthomas_vh_ has joined #mer20:45
juliusaugustuswhat about mali based devices like exynos20:46
*** Tofe has left #mer20:47
juliusaugustushave you guys considered implementing mono support20:47
vgradejuliusaugustus, the STE mail SoC is well represented. I've not seen any hardfp for exynos20:47
vgradejuliusaugustus, about features Mer is providing an up to date set of core pacakges, http://gitweb.merproject.org/gitweb20:49
*** kavurt has quit IRC20:49
vgradejuliusaugustus, I've not seen mono support mentioned20:50
Stskeepsjuliusaugustus: no mono support, feel free to add it yourself in your device20:50
juliusaugustuswell it could be useful for the core platform20:51
*** kavurt has joined #mer20:51
VenemoStskeeps: how's Mer on N9(x0)?20:52
StskeepsVenemo: quite nice20:52
Venemoawesome? :)20:52
Venemoand have you guys managed to find a suitable driver for the ideapad's broadcom wifi? I've been kinda out of the loop for some time.20:53
vgradejuliusaugustus, mono is building for rpm on opensuse so possibly an easy port to Mer20:53
juliusaugustuscool. Mono could enable ease of development and inter-operability with other platforms20:54
StskeepsVenemo: haven't really touched that20:54
Stskeepsjuliusaugustus: generally we try not to include everything into the core, but people are more than welcome to build their own stafcks20:54
ali1234speaking of ideapad, the touchscreen on mine behaves really odd on recent distros20:54
juliusaugustusfair enough20:54
Venemoali1234: what's odd?20:55
ali1234anyone seen that? it moves the mouse pointer but does not register "clicks"20:55
Venemohm.20:55
ali1234except... sometimes it does20:55
*** NIN101 has quit IRC20:55
Stskeepsjuliusaugustus: mer is much about 'roll your own with ease'20:55
ali1234eg in plasma active, i can click on some buttons but not others20:55
Stskeepsie, the fewest people would run mer in it's purest form20:55
ali1234it's always consistent so it must be a high level thing with the OS not realising/treating it as a touchpad20:56
Stskeepsali1234: perhaps mtev vs not20:56
ali1234not?20:57
Stskeepswell, if there wasnt a proper setup for it20:57
Stskeepsand using evdev instead20:57
ali1234it used to work though...20:57
Stskeepsodd20:57
ali1234just ... stopped recently20:57
ali1234it's ubuntu though so if nobody else saw it... they probably broke it with a distropatch20:57
vgradeali1234, meego or mer plasma20:57
*** simon__ has left #mer20:58
juliusaugustusout of curiosity what is the difference between mer and meego20:58
ali1234vgrade: not tried either of those, sorry :)20:59
ali1234just wondered if this was a known widespread problem, ofr just something local to ubuntu... and everyone here has one so...20:59
Stskeepsjuliusaugustus: historically, we're derived from the meego 1.3 work, stripped down to be a core and taking out hw adaptation stuff and UIs20:59
Stskeepsjuliusaugustus: and a lot of stuff towards making it easier to productise20:59
Stskeepshttp://wiki.merproject.org/wiki/Architecture21:00
Stskeepsis work in progress21:00
juliusaugustusseems to rely on a fairly similar set of utilies21:01
Stskeepsthe difference is that meego is dead :)21:01
Stskeepsjuliusaugustus: check out https://archive.fosdem.org/2012/schedule/event/mobile_beyond.html - 'attachments' for some of the reasoning21:02
*** sirdancealot has quit IRC21:02
juliusaugustusthere still seems to be some community activity behind meego21:04
Stskeepsmaybe the meego that is on n9, which is not real meego21:04
ali1234harmatten people? or does that fall under maemo still?21:04
*** gimli has quit IRC21:05
Stskeepsn9 is harmattan which has stack wise nothing much to do with meego21:05
vgradejuliusaugustus, there is also Intel activity in IVI monthly releases21:05
ali1234maemo mailing lists seem to have a lot more traffic than the meego ones these days21:05
vgradejuliusaugustus, but that will stop soon21:05
Stskeepsyes, but that's because there's the equivalent of a civil war there..21:05
juliusaugustuswhat about moblin21:06
ali1234oh really?21:06
Stskeepsmoblin is long dead21:06
Stskeepstizen.org is intel's answer on things21:06
dm8tbrs/answer/today's answer/21:06
ali1234i kind of miss the maemo drama now everyone is doing their own thing21:06
Stskeepsdm8tbr: when do you arrive?21:07
juliusaugustusthe goals should be to unite everyone efforts21:07
dm8tbrStskeeps: right now in an airport hotel in vantaa, in 6h HEL-FRA, then FRA-SFO. arrival monday 1220 local time21:07
Stskeepsjuliusaugustus: yeah.. frankly, that's why we do mer - we work together on the really dry stuff and allow people to be flexible on the areas thy're not21:08
Stskeepsdm8tbr: OK21:08
dm8tbrso with immigration and everything I should be there on time ;)21:08
juliusaugustusalways loved maemo people there got into some extreme arguments ahh the good old days21:09
juliusaugustusmaybe I will get one of those maemo devices does mer work at all on an N810?21:13
ali1234yes, but you realise mer doesn't have a UI right?21:15
