archeyDevilHello. Anyone here know any great guides for getting mer/sailfish to run on the Nokia N900 ?07:10
* archeyDevil has a little bricking experience with the device so I'm not too afraid to brick it ;) Easy to fix. :)07:11
kulvearcheyDevil: have you checked the URLs inthe topic?07:11
*** jayrulez has quit IRC07:11
archeyDevilI thought I did; but I was thinking of #maemo; sorry.07:12
archeyDevilkulve: ^07:12
*** jayrulez has joined #mer07:12
* archeyDevil still can't find any guides for getting mer/sailfish on the N900?07:17
specialarcheyDevil: you probably want nemo07:18
specialthere are instructions for that at
archeyDevilspecial: I've seen that page before; It's installing to the SD card, I don't have any microSD card large enough for such. I need to install over Maemo.07:19
archeyDevilUndesired but I haven't access to larger SD cards.07:19
*** Hoolxi has left #mer07:20
specialah, I have no idea how to do that07:20
archeyDevilI'm awaiting for several SD cards. 1 for my r3.14, 1 for my eeepc, 3 for my N900; And yea. :P07:22
archeyDevilr3.14 -> Raspberry Pi (Habit; easier to type lol)07:22
*** jstaniek has joined #mer07:22
suosaaskiI would almost be interested in installing Nemo on my N9 but to be honest, I am kinda waiting for Sailfish UI if it becomes available, until then, I prefer the N9s UI.07:23
archeyDevilspecial: Any ideas on getting qemu to boot that image then?07:23
archeyDevilThat'd be enough for me; I just want to test it out. I don't need it on my phone exactly.07:23
specialwell, are you looking specifically for sailfish?07:24
archeyDevilspecial: sailfish afaik, looks/acts very much like nemo due to being based apon yes?07:25
archeyDevilSailfish isn't exactly available for what I can see/find. So I come here for the upstream.07:25
specialper, sailfish SDK binaries aren't available until Q1 2013. Nemo is separate, and the UI is entirely different, but it's largely compatible07:26
suosaaskiarcheyDevil: sailfish has a completely different ui compared to nemo.07:26
suosaaski(at least as far as looks go)07:26
archeyDevilAhh. Okay07:26
specialif you want to try nemo in a VM,
archeyDevilspecial: Q1 meaning; jan-apr?07:27
archeyDevilspecial: Ehh. vBox.. Any images for qemu?07:28
archeyDevilsuosaaski: Thanks.07:28
suosaaskiq2 = apr-jun07:28
suosaaskiq3 = jul-sep, q4 = oct-dec07:29
archeyDevilOkay :)07:29

archeyDevil10 min download for vm image. I suspect the image they have should work with qemu. Unless due to drivers, it should. :)07:31
archeyDevilor 4 minutes :)07:31
archeyDevilNice speeds today :D 700+Kbps07:31

BostikarcheyDevil: very likely not, as the core is geared towards Qt, and UI is QML; with Qt5 there will be [eventually] a full QtWebKit available08:27
BostikarcheyDevil: so having gecko side-by-side is probably an unnecessary duplication of engineering effort08:27
BostikarcheyDevil: do note that I do not, and CAN not speak for Jolla's intentions as I have no idea what they are08:28
archeyDevilBostik: Oh ofc.08:28

SuperpelicanStskeeps:Don't want to destroy my Maemo OS09:20
Stskeepsthere's none, on-device compilation is not sane09:20

Stskeepsjo___: welcome to #mer :) so what brings you here?09:52
jo___I was hoping to see some activity here and see if I can get some more info on jolla09:53
Stskeepssure, for jolla specific discussions, #jollamobile is good. Jolla's Sailfish consists of Mer Core, Nemo middleware (#nemomobile) and Sailfish UI09:54

Stskeepsit's a seperate effort from Jolla, has it's own governance, etc :)09:58
jo___yes I have also read about mer09:59
jo___<Stskeeps> I have once watch a youtube video on mer on N90010:00
Stskeepsold or new mer, out of curiousity?10:00
Stskeepswe had two projects, one that was before meego, one that was after10:00
jo___The video was uploaded this year I guess it is the new one10:01
Stskeepsok, maybe10:01
Stskeepsso what do you hope to use mer for?10:01
jo___I'm not a developer but still I would have like to use it on my N90010:03
jo___atleast to test another OS on my N90010:04
Stskeepsyou can try out nemo mobile at least10:05
jo___I know a little about linux but i still don't fully get the difference between nemo and  mer10:06
Stskeepsmer is a core, so it gives building blocks10:07
Stskeepsnemo gives an actual ui10:07
jo___you mean mer consist of the linux kernel10:08
jo___if nemo is an actual ui, what about sailfish ui?10:08
Stskeepssailfish ui is an actual productized ui10:09
Stskeepsnemo is a ui made by community10:09
Stskeepsmer is kinda more like a set of libraries, system level stuff that gives ability to run 60fps qt/html5 applications10:09
jo___thanks for your help, it is very nice to come on a channel and to have a discussion with a project architect10:11
jo___I'm sure you do have a lot of other stuff to do10:11

Stskeepsit's kinda dull but also costy work that it doesn't make sense for individual companies to do10:16

phaeronStskeeps: so what's next for mds210:27
Stskeepswell, i think binary repos are probably next10:28
Stskeepsit's probably copy-and-paste from mds1 and perhaps some sanity checking10:28
phaeronwill get on it10:28
phaeronand it should also dynamically lookup repos instead of having  them hardcoded in the mappings.xml10:29
phaeronright ?10:29
Stskeepswell, it just needs to look in obs-repos/ yeah10:29
kulvehmm.. how is touchscreen supposed to work with rotating the display with xrandr?10:29
Stskeepsusually the touchscreen coordinates should rotate too. in nemo we don't use xrandr as it's too slow for rotation animation (well, that was the cargo cult from nokia)10:31
kulveI thought too that ts should rotate as well, but doesn't for some reason.. Well, not urgent now10:32
Stskeepsare you on -evdev or -mtev?10:32
kulvehow about vsync with PA? Is there simple way of "just enabling" it..?10:35
kulveor double buffering actually10:35
Stskeepshmm, that's a good question10:35
kulveor is that x driver specific?10:35
Stskeepsthe way we have sane vsync in nemo is because of the GLES driver paying attention to it10:36
Stskeepssince many PA apps may actually be sw rendering, i'm unsure / i don't know how kwin works10:36
kulveI did see some tearing with nemo when panning the main view but with e.g. PA browser, it's tearing a lot. Also I'm seeing some polygon like tearing so I think it could be using gles for something10:38
Stskeepsalso that we fullscreen apps for a reason, as to be able to just flip buffers to screen10:38
kulvealso there's a daemon called kwinactive_gles (not sure if that's a window manager..)10:38
Stskeepsshouldn't really be that bad on a n7 though..10:38

phaeronStskeeps: so what's the test case. first I need a repo in binaries path. right ?11:50
Stskeepsyou can just rsync one down - test that you can build against a specific mer tag i guess11:51

Superpelicanali1234:Primary building on target, but a decent IDE won't hurt either15:46
ali1234well user apps like IDEs are the job of whatever builds on top of mer15:48
ali1234but installing toolchains etc on to the device should be quite easy since OBS requires them to be packaged anyway15:49

ali1234maemo was crazy because the default way to build for it was cross compilers and scratchbox (1)15:49

*** Sfiet_Konstantin has quit IRC21:03
bunkVxWorks and QNX are alternatives to Linux in industrial devices where the worst-case real-time performance is extremely important.21:07
bunkFor handsets and infotainment devices (which are what Mer targets) a RTOS doesn't really bring any benefits.21:09

jayrulezWhat does not make much sense?21:21
bunkusing a RTOS for a tablet21:23
jayrulezIt makes sense in RIM's case.21:24
*** arcean has quit IRC21:25
jayrulezLess maintenance overhead.21:25
bunkWhy that?21:26
jayrulezOnly maintaining the QNX stack rather than a Linux stack and a QNX stack.21:26
jayrulezThey are already maintaining QNX for industrial customers and car manufacturers.21:26
jayrulezAlso, QNX is much smaller than Linux.21:27
*** jpetersen__ has joined #mer21:28
bunkkernel size is irrelevant on a device with 1 GB RAM21:28
jayrulezQNX is optimized for embedded devices with tight memory constraints.21:29
jayrulezI am talking about the size of the source code.21:29
bunkgetting QNX to have the same functionality for a tablet as TI already delivers with the BSP for Linux was likely a lot of extra work, and the same will be true for all future SoCs supported21:30
bunksource code size of the kernel itself doesn't matter either21:30
jayrulezQNX supported some TI BSPs even before RIM acquired QSS.21:31
*** jpetersen_ has quit IRC21:31
jayrulezAlso, adding new BSP support is not a huge task as I've seen a small team of about 3 people do it in a couple of months while working on other tasks.21:32
*** dmch has quit IRC21:32
bunkThat depends on the functionalities required and on how much was already supported before.21:34
*** M13 has quit IRC21:35
jayrulezWhat advantages would using linux bring?21:35
bunk"3 people do it in a couple of months while working on other tasks" sounds like a realistic estimate for porting a vendor BSP to a slightly different custum hardware using the same Soc.21:37
*** gabriel9 has quit IRC21:38
*** niqt has joined #mer21:38
bunkcreating a BSP with all functionalities required for a tablet takes insane amounts of man years21:38
jayrulezPlease read this article, quite interesting:
ali1234depends if they have documentation21:43
ali1234porting a (open source/documented) BSP to a different board with the same SoC is a weekend job for one person21:45
bunkali1234: Depends on the differences between the boards and the required functionality.21:47
ali1234since they both use the same SoC the differences will largely consist of "on board A the power LED is on GPIO 19, on board B it is on GPIO 23"21:48
bunkJust like the "3 people do it in a couple of months while working on other tasks" does likely not include writing ltimedia and 3D support from scratch.21:49
jayrulezNo, it does not.21:50
bunkali1234: there's much fun e.g. with components on the board not supported by Linux at all or only with a 3 years old buggy driver21:50
ali12343 people and a couple of months would be a reasonable timeframe for a slightly different SoC from the same vendor and no documentation at all21:50
*** NIN101 has quit IRC21:51
bunk"no documentation at all" makes it hard to get it done at all21:52
ali1234or perhaps a totally different SoC, documented, and with a standard widely used 3d core21:52
ali1234no documentation at all is what the people putting android on windows mobile devices ever had, it normally took them a couple of months for each new device, and was mainly done by 4-5 people.21:53
bunkthat's usually with full Soc documentation and that SoC already reasonably supported under Linux21:54
*** dod has quit IRC21:54
ali1234full SoC documentation from qualcomm given to hackers?21:54

ali1234it was actually done by disassembling the windows mobile drivers and other reverse engineering techniques21:55
ali1234anyway, the operating systems involved do not matter21:55
ali1234reverse engineering the hardware is what takes time21:55
ali1234also QA testing21:56

bunkjayrulez: Linux doesn't make it harder than necessary to port it to new hardware.21:56
*** arcean has joined #mer21:59
jayrulezI do not think so bunk. In fact, it might be easier on linux since there is already support for many SoCs that can be used as reference.21:59
bunkjayrulez: exactly22:01
jayrulez...But the same could be said for other Kernels.22:02
jayrulezI was asking a question earlier bunk. What advantage would it have given RIM if they used Linux as opposed to QNX?22:03
bunk23:30 < bunk> getting QNX to have the same functionality for a tablet as TI  already delivers with the BSP for Linux was likely a lot of extra  work, and the same will be true for all future SoCs supported22:08
bunkjayrulez: And what are the advantages of QNX over Linux for a tablet with 1 GB of RAM?22:09
bunkLegal aspects around "We don't like open source" (for whatever reason) are the only ones that come into my mind.22:10
gabrbeddjayrulez: Probably no advantage. RIM already owns QNX, TI gave them a QNX BSP, and since they're already making huge changes in their OS -- sticking with QNX means less work.22:11
gabrbeddjayrulez: Also, QNX is an RTOS, Linux isn't.22:11
gabrbeddjayrulez: They either would have had to buy RTOS support for Linux from some vendor or else add it themselves.22:12
bunkgabrbedd: Why is RTOS support relevant for a tablet?22:12
jayrulezThanks gabrbedd. I understand the advantages of QNX. I was curious about the possible advantages of using Linux.22:13
gabrbeddjayrulez: Right now, I can't think of any advantage for RIM to switch to Linux.22:14
gabrbeddbunk: Maybe not so important for a tablet, but since they probably deem it important for their phone -- why do it different on the tablet?22:14
bunkgabrbedd: Same question here: Why is a RTOS important for a phone?22:16
*** jpetersen__ has quit IRC22:20
gabrbeddbunk: I'm not sure if I'm qualified to say. My hand-wavey answer is that an RTOS gives you guaranteed I/O response times.  When performing mission-critical tasks (like a being on a call while browsing the internet)... an RTOS helps guard your critical processes against dumb bugs in resource-hogging processes.22:20

zenvoidnot even the kernel is alowed to run23:10
gabrbeddzenvoid: Yes, I understand the dangers of RT-scheduling. What I said above was more or less, "I /think/ the architecture of an RTOS is to give RT-scheduling to system-critical stuff, and deny it to garden variety processes."23:12
gabrbeddI.e. jackd would not get RT.23:12
gabrbeddBut yes, if you write a dumb bug in your system critical stuff... then you will lock everything up.23:13

zenvoidRTAI linux is a real RTOS but it is usually not worth the effort, I've never seen a case that it performs better that linux-rt23:21
