qwebirc79405thx for tip will comment out04:35
vegyraupeqwebirc79405: no prob :)04:35
vegyraupeI will add it to the wiki right away :)04:35
vegyraupetuxbrain: morning, what is ur nick on the wiki?05:16
zearlarsc, i think going up a dir in gmenu2x is still broken10:14
zearunless the version of gmenu2x in the latest image isn't the one with applied patches10:15
larsczear: it's not in the image10:20
zearah10:20
zearbtw, i don't know who is responsible for the image, but you can easily add gmenu2x entries for "console" and "poweroff", "reboot"10:21
zeari'd like to find such entries preinstalled with the image10:21
larsczear: send a patch10:24
zearlarsc, first i'd need to have a newest version of gmenu2x installed10:24
zearthe one with the fixes10:24
zearis it easy enough to compile with owrt?10:24
larscyes10:25
larscedit feeds/qi/gmenu2x/Makefile10:25
kristianpaulls10:25
larscand set PKG_REV to HEAD10:25
larscthen you'll get the latest version10:26
zearlarsc, i must have an outdated version of owrt as i don't have the ./feeds/qi dir10:26
larsczear: what is in your feeds.conf?10:27
zearactually, i don't have one10:28
zeari only have feeds.conf.default10:28
larscah ok10:28
larsccp feeds.conf.default feeds.conf10:28
zearnow do scripts/feeds update and i'll have the qi dir?10:29
darfgarfattempting to do an ipkg of nupdf, what's the best place to have it install to (on the nanonote)10:30
larsczear: if there is an qi entry in feeds.conf, then yes10:32
zearlarsc, i copied feeds.conf.default to feeds.conf, then ran scripts/feeds update and scripts/feeds install -a and i still don't have ./feeds/qi dir10:32
larscdarfgarf: /usr/bin/10:32
zearlarsc, oh, there is not10:32
darfgarflarsc, is it ok to have the data folder there aswell?10:33
darfgarfas i've done it to be self contained, as that's easier for the dingoo10:33
zeardarfgarf, that's the reason i hate the "linux" way of storing the data on embedded devices10:34
darfgarfyes, spreads out all over the place10:34
larscdarfgarf: data is /usr/share10:36
larsczear: do you have openwrt from openwrt.org or qi-hardware.org?10:38
zearlarsc, git clone git://projects.qi-hardware.com/openwrt-xburst.git10:38
zearthough it's about a month old10:39
larsczear: git checkout xburst10:39
zearlarsc, i need to do it inside the openwrt-xburst dir?10:39
larscyes10:40
zearerror: pathspec 'xburst' did not match any file(s) known to git.10:40
larscah, sorry10:40
larscorigin/xburst10:41
zearNote: moving to "origin/xburst" which isn't a local branch10:41
zeari understand that is safe?10:41
zeari still don't have the ./feeds/qi dir10:41
larscyes10:41
larscnow you need to copy feeds.conf.default and run feeds/scripts update10:42
darfgarfhow do you disable gmenu form launching? much prefer the terminal as i mostly do program testing/etc10:42
zeardarfgarf, http://en.qi-hardware.com/wiki/Disable_Gmenu2x_autostart10:44
darfgarfthanks10:44
zearnp10:44
darfgarfand how do we install ipkg's to the nn? doesn't have ipkg at all it seems10:45
larsczear: i hope it works, have to go now10:45
zearlarsc, nope, doesnt :)10:45
zedstaropkg install ....10:47
darfgarfah, what architecture does it want in the ipkg? and kmod-sound-soc....list + directfb.list aren't found10:49
zedstari just ignore those errors or touch the files and it goes away :)10:51
darfgarfright, that's those covered then, so what should the architecture be in the control file?10:53
zedstaru making this by hand or something?10:54
darfgarfpackaging the binary into one10:54
darfgarfso yeah, pretty much10:54
zedstarnot sure but could look inside one built through openwrt to see what it says10:55
darfgarfdon't think so, it removes the control file when it packages it up, just for ipkg-build10:55
zedstarArchitecture: xburst10:57
darfgarftrying it righ tnow, i just assumed it would accept mipsel10:58
zedstarthe control file was inside package10:59
darfgarfreally? because when it's being packaged it removes it10:59
darfgarfor at least says it does...10:59
zedstaryeh was control.tar.gz one of the 3 files untarrred11:00
darfgarfodd, it's still giving the missing .list errors, yet they exist11:03
darfgarfthink i might update first :D11:03
kristianpaulMiro around?11:14
kristianpaulxiangfu: hey11:28
kristianpaulthe ubifs guy11:28
xiangfukristianpaul, hi11:28

kristianpaulso i can do ubifs the 1700MB of remaining NAND and then add it to shole filesystem=11:29
kristianpaul?11:29
xiangfuyes. we can do ubifs on the 1700MB nand.11:31

xiangfuubiformat /dev/mtd3 -y11:32
xiangfuubiattach /dev/ubi_ctrl -m 311:32
xiangfuubimkvol /dev/ubi1 -s 1730MiB -N data11:32
xiangfumkdir /data11:32
xiangfumount -t ubifs ubi1:data /data/11:32
kristianpaulbut i need do mount at boot time with a script or i can tell kernel use it?11:33
kristianpaulactually thats the quetiona i want to make :)11:35
kristianpaulor at least i way after every system upgrade i dont have to coy scripts again11:35
xiangfuI am not find a method let "/etc/fstab" auto mount ubifs now. :-(11:38
kristianpaul:/11:41
kristianpaulwell i'll keep using the script at initd11:41
xiangfukristianpaul, I will keep searching the method :-)11:46
kristianpaulscript !11:46
kristianpaulbut will reduce startup time11:46
kristianpaulmay be i need find how how to laucn gmenu and the same time i mount the /data11:47
xiangfulaunch gmenu is at /etc/init.d/start11:49
