#qi-hardware IRC log for Thursday, 2011-02-17

kristianpaultuxbrain_away: nice 1!01:22
kristianpaulyay ! next week i'll got my local made mm1 sheets case01:26
kristianpaulblue or smoke or red or orange ...01:27
kristianpaulah green too01:27
kristianpaulhmm01:29
kristianpaulsurprise :D01:31
wpwrakkristianpaul: will they surprise you with the color or do you get to choose ?02:09
kristianpauli choos02:10
kristianpaule02:10
wpwrakwhich will you pick ?02:10
kristianpauli'll dont tell until arrives, so more that one could get surpriced ;-)02:11
kristianpaul:D02:11
wpwrakah, they do it just in time. nice :)02:12
wpwrakmaybe wolfgang can then outsource case work from expensive berlin to columbia ;-)02:12
kristianpauli fail to reply today, or they will ship it already..02:13
kristianpaulhehe02:13
kristianpaullets see what i get first02:13
kristianpaulfor me those 15usd are just lost.. until i get the package02:13
kristianpauli could order other color and work but too late02:13
kristianpaulshipping is 5usd..02:14
kristianpaulbut anyway..02:14
kristianpaulwpwrak: columbia???? Where is that?02:14
wpwrakkristianpaul: i think i should use a coin to decide on whether to put o or u. i'd get it right more often :)02:15
kristianpaulhaha02:15
kristianpaulnow i'm really worried if you can speak spanish... ;-)02:16
wpwrakor use the german adaptation "Kolumbien" ;-)02:16
kristianpaulwell at least you do, wolfgang never tried.. :(02:16
kristianpaullol02:17
larscor be inventive and choose a name loosely related to the overall theme in here coulombia ;)02:21
wpwraklarsc: that one's even more difficult :-) perhaps we could just unify all vowels and simply use "a" (remove multiple vowels). calamba. that sounds friendly ;)02:24
steve|mhttp://xkcd.com/853/ :P02:25
wpwrakalright, it'l be a friendly language, without intense emotions :)02:26
kristianpaulhahahah02:27
kristianpaulwpwrak: hey !!!02:29
wpwrakcalamba actually exists, a city in the philipines. when you google for it, they show a little map snippet. i find the area above "calamba" interesting. "Mabuhay City Phase II". i thought cities had such names only in movies ;-)02:32
xiangfuGuest59538: Hi.03:26
xiangfuGuest59538: just found your IP show you are in Beijing :)03:27
Guest59538xiangfu, hi :-)04:00
xiangfuGuest59538: do you have ben nanonote?04:17
Guest59538xiangfu, yeah, I have one nanonote04:18
panda|x201xiangfu, it's awesome :-)04:18
panda|x201xiangfu, so how is life in ingenic?04:22
xiangfupanda|x201: sorry what you mean?04:23
panda|x201xiangfu, oops, you are not working for c04:23
xiangfupanda|x201: I am work for sharism.cc not Ingenic. :)04:23
panda|x201cool, seems Wolfgang hired you directly04:24
xiangfuyes.04:24
rohmorning04:26
panda|x201xiangfu, so any fancy update?04:27
Action: roh wishes flash would be more like harddisks sometimes.. waiting for slow nand04:27
xiangfupanda|x201: http://en.qi-hardware.com/feed/rss20.xml  ;-)04:27
panda|x201xiangfu, ah, can't read those feeds, not Chinese04:28
xiangfupanda|x201: http://en.qi-hardware.com/wiki/OpenWrt_Software_Image#Image_2011-02-1404:29
xiangfuoh04:29
panda|x201xiangfu, wow, Valentine's Day release, so sweet :-)04:29
xiangfupanda|x201: not release yet. I delay again. :(04:31
xiangfupanda|x201: the next release will have those features04:31
panda|x201xiangfu, ah, you mean 0214 release is not integrated with new wallpapers?04:32
panda|x201xiangfu, anyway, it's good to see if maps can work04:32
panda|x201it's broken in my last update04:33
panda|x201xiangfu, BTW: your job is really cool ;-)04:34
xiangfupanda|x201: NanoMaps?  works fine in 2010-12-14,04:34
xiangfupanda|x201: which version do you using?? check by 'more /etc/VERSION'04:35
panda|x2012010-11-0704:35
panda|x201em, a quite buggy release, even /dev node for RTC is broken04:36
panda|x201anyway, if stardict or other dictionary apps working fine, then I will considering about an update04:37
xiangfupanda|x201: stardict. qstardict. sdcv works fine in 2010-12-14.04:48
panda|x201xiangfu, 2011-02-14 image was still not released yet?05:27
xiangfupanda|x201: not yet. still compiling...05:31
xiangfuwhen the BUILD_LOG goto 200M the build will finish: http://fidelio.qi-hardware.com/~xiangfu/compile-log/openwrt-xburst.full_system-02162011-0724/05:31
xiangfupanda|x201: you can wait for 2011-02-14. or reflash your nanonote use the 2010-12-14 version:http://en.qi-hardware.com/wiki/OpenWrt_Software_Image#Image_2010-12-1405:31
panda|x201xiangfu, ok, I can wait, if it's comes with more apps05:32
panda|x201xiangfu, so you will release it soon in this week?05:32
xiangfupanda|x201: first release test version. then normal release.05:33
xiangfuif everything goes fine. today I will release the test version.05:33
panda|x201xiangfu, ok05:34
kyakxiangfu: what do you think about kicking out fbgs and ghostscript from rootfs and build them as packages? nupdf is much better than "poor man's" fbgs and ghostscript was only ported, to tell the truth, as a dependency of fbgs.05:50
kyaki'm not talking about the current release, just for the future05:50
kyakxiangfu is a crawling tiger :)05:59
kyakno chance of getting him05:59
larsca ninja06:00
tuxbrain_awaywolfspraul: I know you review the logs but just in case you did'n notice UBBs are on the go :)07:57
wolfspraulI don't always re-read08:01
wolfspraulhaven't seen this one08:01
wolfspraulyou mean you made the order?08:01
tuxbrain_awayyep08:07
wolfspraulgreat, congratulations!08:10
rohtuxbrain_away: nice08:25
rohany note how long it will take?08:25
tuxbrain_awaytwo weeks, but we announce and take preorders  later on today08:29
tuxbrain_awayfinally I decided to simplfy, so no cable, no cheap (and risky) shippment I hope you understand08:33
rohnice.08:35
dvdkxiangfu: btw looking at the 2-14 firmware changelog, zgv is missing?09:14
dvdkso what's the correct way of getting things into config.full_system?  just commit myself?09:15
dvdkhi kyak.  so already end of workday in china?09:16
dvdk:)09:16
kyakdvdk: i remember wolfspraul once gave a green light to add things in config.full_system09:16
dvdkwell, since i haven't been able to compile config.full_system in months, I was somehow reluctant to add untested stuff.09:17
dvdkautoconf is really terrible.09:17
dvdkleads to different compilation action in config.full_system vs. my minimal one09:17
kyaki also have a kind of minimal set09:18
dvdkso going to commit and bloat the size of the next image a bit :)09:18
kyaki thought about removing fbgs and ghostscript, which is huge09:19
dvdkwell, ghostscript could be a nice feature.  there is no proper replacement.09:19
kyakcase anyone needs it, he can install it as a pacakge09:19
kyaki don't see it like a commonly used pacakge09:19
dvdkbut were to get packages from?  do we have a repo nowadays?  compile oneself?09:20
dvdkyeah, current gs package is broken, btw :/09:20
kyakopkg install ghostscript09:20
kyakshould be fixed09:20
dvdkkyak: you mean we finally got an up-to-date repo?09:20
kyakdvdk: xiangfu is working on release image now, with all the pacakges09:20
dvdkwell, might take me some days until i manage to upgrade09:20
kyaki mean, all the pacakges are also avaialble separately09:21
dvdkthey weren't until now, afaik, the repository listed in opkg.conf was completely out of date09:21
wolfspraulit probably still is. work in progress :-)09:22
kyakdamn. i just CAN'T write "package".. it is always "pacakge" ):09:22
wolfspraulsorry for being slow09:22
dvdkbinary compatability is a bitch.  i guess many out-of-date packages will crash when installed into 02-2009:22
wolfspraulyes, feel free to add something to config.full_system, I see this like a flag 'others please test it'09:22
dvdk02-1409:22
kyakdvdk: having a look at changes in wiki, opkg.conf should now point to correct repo09:22
dvdkwolfspraul: ok09:22
dvdkwolfspraul: btw what's the current release cycle?  one image per months?  or just release once everything is in a compilable state?09:23
wolfspraulhe. good question.09:24
wolfspraulwe have no 'official app list', or 'official supported programming languages'09:24
wolfspraulnot even 'official gui toolkits'09:24
wolfspraulthat means no test plan09:24
wolfspraulbecause no test plan - we cannot even produce 1 really verified image09:24
wolfsprauland because not 1, also no series of them09:25
wolfspraulin the meantime we essentially try to always just stabilize things09:25
wolfspraulI think the overwhelming value comes from stability.09:25
wolfspraulbottom line - if we can have a new image every 2 months, I think that would be great09:25
wolfspraulthen I want to work a bit on smoother upgrades, via opkg09:25
dvdkwell, last year it was one image per moths already.09:26
wolfspraulso maybe one day we move away from the images entirely, and there is just a stream of opkg updates? don't know...09:26
dvdkubuntu is planning to use a "rolling release" model sometime in the future.09:26
wolfspraulyeah, I can imagine09:26
dvdki like the snapshot images, this way everybody is seeing the same state09:26
wolfspraulhowever, I'm pragmatic above everything else. so it depends on the state of tools, openwrt, what works out of the box (in the tools), etc.09:26
wolfspraulsure but it could be possible to build an image out of packages09:27
wolfspraulfor example we could build packages only, and the imagebuilder could still produced a full_system type imag09:27
wolfspraulimage09:27
kyakthis image is going to be pretty awesome. I don't remember if anything particular is broken09:27
wolfspraullike I said it depends on the tools, I am very careful to introduce anything that will become a maintenance headache - read: that will become obsolete later09:28
wolfspraulopenwrt is working on some opkg upgrade improvements, I heard09:28
wolfspraulwe are trying to cleanup the files, reduce the diff to upstream09:28
wolfspraulit's a flow type of thing. go with the flow...09:28
qi-bot[commit] kyak: don't include ghostscript and fbgs into rootfs, build as modules http://qi-hw.com/p/openwrt-xburst/8200c9309:35
dvdkxiangfu: also a regression in config.full_system: it lists gnuplot-ggi which doesn't exist any more.  the package is nowadays named gnuplot-gfx09:37
wolfspraulkyak: we had this one pretty awesome postscript blog post09:37
wolfspraulabout postscript as a programming language. I liked it.09:37
kyakwolfspraul: yeah, it's good. But it's size is 25 Mb after installation. Having it by default in rootfs is overwhelming. We still provide it as a individual package, so won't be a problem for someone who's interested to install it.10:16
wolfspraulif it's broken, that's a good argument. otherwise it feels painful to remove it with that nice blog post.10:24
wolfspraulbut the rootfs is full, we need to compromise a little until we find a way to increase it and keep bootup time low still10:24
wolfspraulso many conflicting priorities :-)10:24
wolfspraulI trust your judgment, if you remove it let's move like that.10:25
wolfspraulyou can also look over the packages, maybe there are still others that provide little value.10:25
kyakno, it should be fixed10:29
kyak(little value) openvpn :)10:32
kyakhave no idea why it is there10:32
kyakand so php10:33
wpwrakmy vote for a package-centric approach. you can always introduce "known points of stability" by selecting a snapshot (and, when that snapshot has problems, arrange your work such that they get fixed before more items in the snapshot get broken - not too different from how you work on a "one big piece of everything" system)10:44
kristianpaulJay7: So kexeboot is ready for the nanonote? i saw your mail on the list :-)10:53
wolfspraulkyak: php is a scripting language, like perl/python/lua/erlang11:06
wolfspraulvery important imo11:06
wolfspraulopenvpn is about networking, and that's by definition good :-)11:06
wolfspraulI am on a 24/7 openvpn connection11:06
wpwrak(php) hmm, a language almost exclusively used for web servers (at least i've never heard it mentioned in any other context) ... "important' on the ben ? not that it wouldn't be nice to have, just in case, but it seems like quite the niche. okay, like forth ;-)11:11
jow_laptopI was shoked to see that the debian sheevaplug installer was written in php11:13
jow_laptop*shocked11:13
kyakyeah, php in default image is more than questionable11:13
kyakopenvpn by default in network-less device?...11:14
wolfspraulsure of course, I want to add voip too11:18
wolfsprauloffline rss, offline imap, etc.11:18
wolfspraul'network-less' is relative11:18
wolfspraulwhen I download music, it comes via USB as well, much easier than over the memory card11:18
wpwrakkyak: wolfgang won't rest until he has firefox and java, so he can run office applications from the cloud ;-)11:18
wpwrak(network-less) i think this will change a bit with wpan. right now, there's little reason to interact with the network from the ben. but if it can be a bit away from other things, this changes11:20
kyaki wait for wpan so badly :)11:21
wpwrakit won't be too long. the last days i've been cutting and etching boards. realized that the latest atben layout change squeezed things a bit too tightly, so i'm making it 0.1mm larger in each direction now. and switching to a metric grid. down with the imperial madness !11:24
wpwrak(metric) two key elements, the 8:10 card and the antenna have metric dimensions, so fitting them was always a fight. i'm still too much of a coward to also go to metric traces, clearance, and holes, though11:25
kyakhm, i didn't know Argentina wasn't metric.. Or is it just you?11:27
dvdkkyak: don't judge so easily about what's required and what not.  Currently most use cases of nanonote are curious things anyway.11:27
dvdk(about removing packages)11:28
dvdkphp could be valuable for having host-accesssible web-apps on the nanonote11:28
kyakdvdk: i wouldn't remove it if we weren't so tight on those 512 Mb already11:28
kyakimage how many packages could be fitted on 25 Mb11:28
dvdkkyak: well than i shouldn't port more packages, most stuff won't fit into the 512 MB anyway :)11:29
dvdkbtw, is the ubifs compressed?11:29
dvdkas an alternative, we could do what many openwrt distribs do: use a compressed rom filesystem, and layer an ubifs above it.11:30
kyakfirst of all, there are no such thing as host-accesssible web-apps at the momnet on Ben. Secondly, i would argue against writing it in php. Overall, i doubt there is a single person who ever typed "php" at ben11:30
wolfsprauldvdk: we will increase the rootfs for sure11:31
wolfspraulwhy do we have a 2gb nand11:31
kyakthat's the reason why we should keep the rootfs smaller.. realyl generic and commonly used apps  only11:31
dvdkkyak: i just wanted us to stay cautious.  maybe people have been using ben this way already?11:31
dvdki already thoughut about using ben as a portable svn server11:31
kyakso that anyone could just grab and install an app you ported, and he would have enough space for that11:31
wolfspraulit's just about growing in the right way so that bootup time doesn't go through the roof. in my experience it's near impossible to bring it back down once it's over 30 seconds.11:31
wolfspraulwe are at 21, that's already a few worse than I thought (I only did rough counting on my Ben, felt more like 17/18)11:31
dvdkalso i think that having apps available from opkg is nothing to having them pre-installed.  people are going to judge us by what is pre-installed.11:32
wpwrak(boot time) or just suspend :)11:32
dvdkwe don't even have a proper package-manager to search packages in11:32
wolfsprauldvdk: totally. 90% or more of what matters is out-of-box experience11:33
kyakat the moment, we can easily occupy 2 Gb with packages11:33
kyakwho needs it?11:33
dvdkso moving sthings into packages means (mostly) to remove them from people's eyes11:33
wpwrakdvdk: (packages) do people judge debian by what is pre-installed ?11:33
kyakdvdk: opks search ?11:33
kyak*opkg11:33
wolfspraulnot 'occupy', it's about filling something valuable in there. and also not the full 2gb as there needs to be space for data, like maps, music, dictionaries, pictures, etc.11:33
dvdkmpwrak: debian has a nice package manager that i s easily a4ccessible from the desktop11:33
dvdkkyak: opkg search?  won't call that a readily acessible package manager11:34
jow_laptopafaik the opkg maintainer did a gtk frontend recently11:34
wpwrakdvdk: naw, fix the real problem. packages are unavoidable. it only seems that you can avoid them because there's still very little stuff for openwrt. look at jlime. without packages, you're dead instantly.11:34
dvdkwpwrak: then the logical consquence looks like we need a graphical/gui package manager accessible from gmenu2x?11:34
dvdkmaybe aptitude can be hacked to work on NN?11:35
wpwrakwolfspraul: i don't like the idea of pre-filling the device. for the user, this then creates the problem that they don't have room for their own stuff and need to decide what of the pre-installed things they can safely get rid of. this is hard.11:35
dvdkjow_laptop: realy? need to check that out11:35
wpwrakwolfspraul: if you really want to pre-fill the device, that should probably be in the form of a single package that can be removed with one sweep11:36
dvdkwpwrak: i thought that flash is relatively infinitely sized compared to the available software that can run on the ben11:36
wpwrakdvdk: i think a user-friendly package manager is important, yes11:36
dvdk:)11:36
wpwrakdvdk: (infinitely) only if you're slacking ;-))11:36
jow_laptopah no, it was integration with packagekit11:36
wolfspraulthose are all just theoretical questions.11:36
wolfspraulpractically it's also about what actually works, and works well11:37
jow_laptophttp://blogs.gnome.org/thos/2008/03/05/opkg-and-packagekit/11:37
Action: dvdk doesn't want to go hunting for opkgs, whenever he upgraded the firmware.11:37
wolfspraulI have no doubt we can find a really nice set of 'default' apps that fit in 512 mb. and then there is still another 1.5gb that is mostly only out of sight because we are trying to avoid the long ubifs attach, otherwise we wouldn't even talk about this now and happily keep adding stuff.11:38
Action: dvdk doesn't even like using the package manager ubuntu after doing a fresh installation11:38
wolfspraulpackage manager is important for a smoother upgrade procedure11:38
wolfsprauland xiangfu has been working on packetizing more files11:38
dvdkwolfspraul: going to call you on that :) (512 mb)11:38
wolfspraulthat's also good for others who want to build different rootfses11:38
wolfspraulif php and openvpn are indeed the packages with the least value on ben, and other than that 512 is full, then we have to look at a larger rootfs soon11:39
wolfspraulalthough I think there are lower hanging fruits (to be removed without loosing functionality), it's just that openvpn and php pop into kyak's eyes and he thinks they are not needed on Ben.11:39
wolfspraulif the whole rest of the 512 mb is already that good (like php and openvpn), then we must be much further than I realize :-)11:40
wpwrakdvdk: (upgrade model) i think this should work like on a pc. also there, you normally just upgrade your distribution without wiping out everything. the idea of a "firmware image" with a fully featured rootfs is fundamentally flawed11:41
dvdkwpwrak: i think a pc-like upgrade model will not be feasible for ben.11:42
wpwrakdvdk: (upgrade model) perhaps it would make sense to be able to "slave" the ben to some other device, though, to keep track of install actions. so if the ben is lost/destroyed/erased, you have a backup.11:42
wpwrakdvdk: why not ?11:42
dvdkwpwrak: we don't have the manpower to make upgrading work that flawlessly11:42
dvdkwpwrak: we don't even have a way to track binary compatability breakage with uclibc upgrades11:43
dvdkwpwrak: getting an debianesce upzgrade experience might involve debianesce overhead :)11:44
wpwrakdvdk: so you're saying the dependencies in openwrt are incomplete/broken ?11:44
dvdkwpwrak: openwrt is not debian.  it does not track package versions in dependencies.  also getting these dependencies right takes _a_lot_ of time, i guess.11:45
dvdkhave you seen dependencies in debian like (11:45
Action: dvdk checks his local install11:46
wpwrakbecause that's what it boils down to. also, i think one reason for picking openwrt was to avoid having to spend the full distribution maintenance effort in this little project. if this doesn't work, then the problem may be even higher up ...11:46
wpwrakyes yes, i've seen them. i even parsed them ;-)11:47
dvdklook at this dependencies (example):  Needs libxcursor > 1.1.2, conflict with liballegro4a <2:4.0.3-511:47
kyakdvdk: how can you think that 2 Gb Flash is infinitely large for 2800+ packages?...11:47
dvdkit must take enormous efforts to find bugs in these dependencies11:47
dvdkkyak: just assumed porting speed << available_space11:48
Action: dvdk assumes that 1.5GB flash will be enough for everyone :)11:49
kyakwhat do you mean "porting speed" these are ported already11:49
dvdkyeah, but will they fit in 1.5GB space?  how much remains free?  how long does it take until porters can fill out the remaining space?11:50
wolfspraulthere is no point in filling 2gb garbage to the device11:50
kyakit WON'T fit11:50
kyakthat's th epoint11:50
dvdkthen i underestimated openwrt's productivity11:50
wpwrakdvdk: (large effort) yes, i agree. that's why we shouldn't do these things within qi-hw. if upstream doesn't deliver this, then our choice of upstream may be the limiting factor11:50
wpwrakdvdk: e.g., we already have jlime with mighty OE (and complex dependencies) as upstream. there's also the idea of trimming a real debian down to an acceptable size.11:52
dvdkok, i think the only thought remotely ressembling some kind of solution would be to get a proper (gui) package manager on to the ben?11:53
dvdk... or replace openwrt with jlime or debian :)11:53
wpwrakdvdk: (package manager) i think that would be a good start11:53
Action: dvdk moved package manager a few steps upwards on his todo list11:53
wpwrakdvdk: then we can see how bad it really is11:53
kyakreplace it, like there is gui package manager in jlime? :) or apt is even remotely working in debian?11:54
wpwrakdvdk: maybe it works great and the occasional weird conflict can be easily fixed. maybe not.11:54
dvdkkyak: kidding?  synaptics, aptitude, work pretty well for me.  don't know much about jlime11:54
wpwrakkyak: jlime still has a performance problem with opkg. but there's help on the horizon ...11:55
kyakdvdk: so you did try apt in debian in Ben, right?11:55
dvdkwpwrak: i think we'd need regular firmware updates plus per-firmware pakckage repositories11:55
dvdkkyak: i installed debian using the debian installer on ben, dude.11:55
dvdktook me a full day.11:55
wpwrakdvdk: that would be a start11:55
dvdkvery nice watching aptitude grab more than twice the amount  of available ram11:56
kyakdvdk: either you have a lot of patience, or a lot of free time. How long does it take apt to install someting?11:56
wpwrakdvdk: then people could also try cross-release upgrades11:56
dvdkkyak: apt is fine, does use < 32 MB.  aptitude is terrible, though (does it invoke some perl code?)11:56
dvdki think debian package database management is not properly designed, needs to pull the full database into memory for installation.11:57
wpwrakkyak: (help on the horizon) http://projects.qi-hardware.com/index.php/p/wernermisc/source/tree/master/qpkg11:57
kyakwpwrak: opkg works pretty fast for me11:57
dvdkkyak: btw using debian-installer implies that it pulled the full base installation via apt.11:58
wpwrakkyak: because there are only a few packages in openwrt. you should see it crawl on jlime :)11:58
dvdknot surprisingly, i then ditched debian for openwrt11:58
wpwrakwell, in all fairness, also jlime has packages that we could probably drop11:59
dvdkwpwrak (cross release upgrades): how would that work?11:59
wpwrakdvdk: you install you base system, say, in december. then, when the february edition comes out, you upgrade with packages from there12:00
dvdkwpwrak: that would mean that you backport all new packages into the earlier firmware branches.  doable, but even more complex12:01
wpwrakdvdk: depending on how good the dependencies and how bad the incompatibilities are, you may just cherry-pick the few things you really care about12:01
wpwrake.g., if you just want the latest forth, there's no point in updating openvpn ;-)12:01
dvdkwpwrak: what i was suggesting is that you have packages newyl build for every firmware version released, so you libariry version dependencies are fulfilled for sure.12:01
wpwrakdvdk: yes, i understand that. but that's also very limiting, because you need to replace lots of things that shouldn't need replacing.12:02
dvdkyes, alternative would be backporting, which is limiting in its way, too12:03
dvdkcompromise would be to release firmware images seldomly and update the packages multiple times per released firmware12:03
wpwrakdvdk: also, do "core" libraries break binary compatibility *that* often ?12:03
wpwrakbackporting is evil :)12:03
Action: dvdk saw uclibc compatability break two times in half a year12:03
wpwrakthat doesn't speak well for uclibc :-(12:04
jow_laptopuclibc compat can also break if its feature config changed12:04
dvdkthis is going to be a library version hell with many interesting untracable bugs reported12:04
jow_laptopwithin the same version12:04
wolfsprauldvdk: but to be fair, it went back to the old version12:04
dvdkwolfspraul: this was  the second time it broke for me :)  see, i already had migrated to a hand-build firmware image featuring the newer version.12:05
wpwrakjow_laptop: true. how bad is this with feature additions ? i.e., if you enable new features, how likely are they to break other ABIs ?12:05
wolfsprauldvdk: you were the one who even brought up the issue (binary compatibility).12:05
wolfspraulso it broken, then we went back (fixed it).12:06
wolfspraulyou were too fast, so you had to change twice...12:06
wolfspraulbut we also concluded that binary compatibility is not very high on our priority list12:06
dvdkwolfspraul: hit me twice by surprise.  nobody seemed to send a notice to the list.12:06
wolfspraulonly that next time we will manage/communicate it better, hopefully12:06
wolfspraulyes, agreed [notice]12:06
wpwrakokay, so uclibc is exonerated. good :)12:06
Action: dvdk is looking up exonerated in the dictionary12:07
wolfspraulwpwrak: openwrt is flexible, those different uclibc versions are just a checkbox away.12:07
wolfspraulbinary compatibility just totally wasn't on anybodys radar before dvdk brought it up.12:07
wolfspraulthat's a true oversight.12:07
wolfspraulbut now it is on the radar, even if we concluded that we will not go to great lengths in openwrt to maintain it. so if something good comes along, or an upstream default changes, we change with it.12:08
wpwrakwolfspraul: yes, but it's also a dangerous checkbox. the more you rely on it, the more problems people will have who develop things outside of openwrt.12:08
wolfspraulbut because it is on the radar, hopefully the breakage will be communicated much more prominently12:08
wolfspraulwpwrak: no, inside openwrt you can pick different uclibc versions12:08
dvdki'd say the long discussion proves that package-based upgrades are a comlex thing.12:08
Action: dvdk likes the image-based release model. K.I.S."12:08
dvdkS.12:08
wpwrakwolfspraul: (breakage) i would hope, though, that uclibc doesn't inflict breakage too casually when merely enabling features12:09
wolfsprauldefinitely. that's why until today for both jlime, debian, openwrt, all that is communicated is 'here is this image, reflash this and try it out'12:09
wolfspraulwpwrak: ask uclibc folks12:09
dvdkim off12:09
wolfsprauln812:09
wpwrakwolfspraul: (image-based) rafa already agrees that going package-based will be better :)12:09
wolfspraulah, it's not late yet :-) so just: cu later...12:10
wpwrak;-))12:10
wpwrakwolfspraul: my idea for the rootfs is to use the myroot approach. there you can make your rootfs "a la carte" from packages. then all you need is a "default menu" that lists likely choices12:11
wolfspraulwpwrak: in openwrt, we will experiment with the ImageBuilder a bit more12:14
wpwrakso you can still have an "official" rootfs image (that's useful because it's one stop shopping for an initial installation. kinda like an ubuntu install cd.), but there's nothing "magic" about that rootfs12:14
wolfspraulthe IB is supposedly offering exactly that kind of functionality12:14
wpwrakperfect12:14
wolfspraulinstead of building images, we may try to build all packages, and then use the imagebuilder to build a 'full_system' type image12:14
wolfspraulthere are many options everywhere, I'm sure there are options in debian and jlime too12:15
wpwrakyup, that sounds good12:15
wolfspraulone by one, let's see what works12:15
zrafawpwrak: initial rootfs.. like the bootstrap?12:15
wpwraki hope to apply myroot to jlime. should be easy, just didn't have time yet. (and nobody else has beaten me to it .... hi, zrafa ;-)12:15
wpwrakzrafa: the rootfs you install on a blank device12:16
wpwrakzrafa: it should probably be more than a just a menu with the installer, to give people a nice initial experience. but it doesn't have to be overly loaded either.12:17
zrafawpwrak: wolfspraul : I really like the idea to use openwrt or OE to keep a good repository full of packages. And because those repositories have all the base system packages as well it would be great to use something like myrootfs from wpwrak. So all the effort would go to keep good packages already prepared for nn, and they live on the repo. All is there waiting for fun. And for the rootfs we could use something like myrootfs which just take the proper p12:17
wpwrakzrafa: showcase the ten nicest/most useful applications maybe.12:17
zrafawpwrak: wolfspraul : and prepare the rootfs we want.12:17
wpwrakleave the rest to opkg/qpkg12:18
zrafawpwrak: ah.. I see.. bootstrap + menu + 10 best applications ;)12:18
zrafawpwrak: nothing that myrootfs or similar can not do :)12:18
zrafawpwrak: let me move and I will find the time. Of course, for a minimal bootstrap I could see my rootfs and try to merge it with packages from current jlime repo.12:19
wpwrakyes, you could also start with a "traditional" rootfs. the advantage of myroot would be that other people could very easily make their own variants.12:22
dvdkabout the myrootfs approach: could put that into a .cgi script hosted on qi-hardware.  customized rootfs downloads :)12:31
kyakthat's funny.. there are ~1500 Ben users globally, maybe 50 % are active users and you are talking about customized images!12:33
wolfsprauleven less. there are only about 1100 Ben users, and I doubt 50% are 'active', let's say defined as using their Bens daily.12:34
wolfspraulthat number may be as low as 50-100? not sure of course.12:34
kyakmaybe we could think like "is this patricular package presented on the first CD of Ubuntu?"12:34
wolfspraulit may be more, especially if you include people that use it once in a while.12:34
kyakthen we won't have to argue :)12:34
wolfspraulI am not worried at all about these numbers by the way.12:35
jow_laptopyou could just offer the imagebuilder for download along with the rootfs iamges12:35
wolfspraulwhat we attempt is truly different, and the nucleus needs to be right to even be able to grow.12:35
kyakme too.. i'm happy about myself :)12:35
jow_laptopthen people who want their own images without compiling can use it to roll their own12:35
wolfspraulI need to sell 200 Milkymist One this year, and get some crucial community going there - that will be hard!12:35
wolfspraulbut step by step12:35
wolfspraulthings are moving12:35
kyakyeah, that imagebuilder idea is appealling12:36
kyakpeople could just tick packages they need, and viola - they got their image to flash fast12:37
dvdkkyak: then we only need a javascript implementation of reflash_ben :)12:38
kyakdvdk: yeah, i had that idea, too :)12:39
xiangfukyak: Hi.13:32

xiangfukyak, sorry.13:36
xiangfuhere: http://fidelio.qi-hardware.com/~xiangfu/compile-log/openwrt-xburst.full_system-02162011-0724/13:36
dvdkxiangfu: going over config.full_system: plplot actually made it into the image!?13:39
kyakxiangfu: cool! going to try it today13:40
xiangfudvdk: no yet. there is  some compile error.  sorry. don't have time work on that.13:40
dvdkxiangfu: because it's still listed in the config13:40
dvdkxiangfu: no problem.13:40
xiangfudvdk: it's list config mean we want but it into images ;-)13:41
kyakdvdk: plplot is listed as a modules.. guess xiangfy was compiling with IGNORE_ERRORS=m13:42
kyakxiangfu, sorry :)13:42
xiangfudvdk: before I run 'make' . there is a small shell : http://fidelio.qi-hardware.com/~xiangfu/bin/patch-openwrt.sh13:42
kyakxiangfu: did you have any troubles with pango?13:42
dvdkkyak: browsing online, it's listed as 'y' http://projects.qi-hardware.com/index.php/p/openwrt-xburst/source/tree/master/data/qi_lb60/conf/config.full_system13:42
kyakdvdk: http://fidelio.qi-hardware.com/~xiangfu/compile-log/openwrt-xburst.full_system-02162011-0724/config13:42
xiangfudvdk: http://fidelio.qi-hardware.com/~xiangfu/bin/patch-openwrt.sh check this.13:43
dvdkxiangfu: ok. understood13:43
dvdkxiangfu: btw ripped pango support out of plplot, maybe it's better next time.13:43
kyakxiangfu: hmmmm , any troubles with w3m?13:43
xiangfudvdk: the plplot compile error: http://fidelio.qi-hardware.com/~xiangfu/compile-log/openwrt-xburst.full_system-for-release/BUILD_LOG.02112011-1210.last10013:45
xiangfukyak: the w3m show some X depends error.13:45
kyakhmm.. so bad -\13:46
kyakwill check it13:46
kyakxiangfu: did pango compile find for you?13:46
dvdkxiangfu: this compile log is for an old version of plplot?  because it says 'checking for module pango'13:46
kyaks/find/fine13:46
xiangfukyak: it try to using some libX**, maybe because I build all package. w3m auto detect the X and try to enable some stuff13:46
dvdkxiangfu: current version shouldn't do that13:46
xiangfudvdk: ok. let me find out the current error.13:47
dvdkxiangfu: or maybe my last change is incomplete.  didn't come around to testing-building config.full_system yet13:47
dvdkkyak: so you did something with pango?  because pango seems to be broken, which breaks the plplot build when pango is auto-detected.13:49
kyakdvdk: no, i can't do anything to pango because it's in openwrt feeds. I'm asking because it's broken for me. And i'm wondering how even xiangfu managed to build it13:49
kyakxMff said that it is due to broken autoconf13:50
kyakand that he was going to backport something to help resolv this issue13:50
xiangfudvdk: last few line of compile plplot: http://pastebin.com/vnmGgdtb13:51
Action: kyak builds config_full to see what's the problem with w3m13:51
xiangfudvdk: line: 698193 at BUILD_LOG.bz213:52
tuxbrain_awaywpwrak: do you have high res pics of the UBB?13:53
xiangfukyak: http://pastebin.com/5QFTdqHa  last few line of compile w3m13:55
kyakxiangfu: yup. got it..13:55
xiangfukyak: dvdk there is a little issue on reflash u-boot.13:55
kyaknot the first time an apps detects X headers and enables X support.. need to make sure to disable that explicitely13:55
dvdkxiangfu?13:55
kyakthe Ben explodes in your face?13:55
xiangfuwhen reflash the new u-boot. it output some 'Comparing ...' error. but it's not a really bug.13:55
dvdkhmm.13:55
kyakis it masked by reflash_ben.sh?13:55
xiangfulet me explain a little.13:56
dvdkbtw do we have to reflash u-boot.  i usually disable that part in reflash_ben.sh, just updating kernel and rootfs13:56
xiangfudvdk: no need. the new version u-boot support UBIFS.13:57
xiangfuwhen pressing 'F4' when poweron. it's try to load rootfs:/boot/uImage. not the raw kernel in nand.13:57
dvdkxiangfu: yeah, read about that.13:57
xiangfuwhen jz4720 poweron. it's will load 8KB nand data to memory.13:58
xiangfuthe MAX page size that jz4720 hardcode is 2KB.13:58
dvdkxiangfu: BUILD_LOG.bz2 from http://fidelio.qi-hardware.com/~xiangfu/compile-log/openwrt-xburst.full_system-for-release/ ist from 13.feb. and still lists the pango-related plplot build error.  guess my fix was committed too late.13:59
xiangfuso when we reflash the first 8KB of bootloader when also using 2KB ecc stuff13:59
xiangfudvdk: this is the last: [DIR]openwrt-xburst.full_system-02162011-0724/14:00
Action: dvdk starts to understand the file layout14:00
xiangfuFeb 16 2011 - 07:24 == 02162011-072414:01
xiangfudvdk: kyak this also why we can not flash bootloader inside linux system.14:01
Action: dvdk nods14:02
xiangfuhere is the usbboot code deal with this : http://projects.qi-hardware.com/index.php/p/xburst-tools/source/tree/master/usbboot/xburst_stage2/nandflash_4740.c#L55814:02
xiangfudvdk: kyak , I meet some sound module issue : http://pastebin.com/XLENqsqN  :(14:05
dvdkxiangfu: shouldn't be possible.  so modules out of sync with kernel image?  did you flash both?14:06
xiangfudvdk: after rebase the kernel update to 2.6.32.27.14:07
xiangfuthose patches are still for 2.6.32.25 I think.14:07
kyakit sure seems that the build root is not consistent..14:07
kyaki don't have such problem14:07
kyakusing 2.6.32.27.14:07
dvdkxiangfu: wrong patches cannot cause such a problem (then build would fail).14:07
kyakxiangfu: coudl you explain how you overcame pango build issue?14:08
kyakxiangfu: are you sure you built from scratch?14:08
xiangfukyak: I am sure I build from scratch.14:08
xiangfukyak: http://fidelio.qi-hardware.com/~xiangfu/bin/compile-openwrt-xburst.sh14:08
xiangfuthe cron jobs is using this script file.14:09
dvdkxiangfu: about the plplot problem: you still try to build plplot-tcl.14:09
xiangfuthere is 'make distclean' in that file14:09
dvdkxiangfu: this fails, you don't have tclsh installed locally.14:09
dvdkxiangfu: just remove plplot-tcl from config14:09
dvdk(or install a tclsh on buildhost)14:10
kyakxiangfu: ok, i see. Did you have any problems building pango?14:11
dvdkxiangfu: so we have automatic nightly builds.  nice.  now i no where to look for problems before you even can start to complain14:11
xiangfudvdk: would like to install tclsh. there is tcl8.3/4/5 which one I should install in debian?14:11
dvdkxiangfu: in theory shouldn't matter.  just use 8.5 , same version used in openwrt/target14:11
kyakdvdk: btw, $(eval $(call RequireCommand,tclsh,Please install tcl.)) in your Makefile would help :)14:11
xiangfukyak: there is no error when compile pango. you can see the pango package compile fine: http://fidelio.qi-hardware.com/~xiangfu/compile-log/openwrt-xburst.full_system-02162011-0724/packages/pango_1.26.0-4_xburst.ipk14:12
dvdkkyak: feel free to commit a patch :)  nice, RequireCommand is a featuro of openwrt includes?14:12
zrafawpwrak: with meego dropped it seems that limo and samsung OS (with rasterman on top of that as main dev) are the two big efforts to have a real linux OS for phones. The samsung with raster could be really interesting for something like a real linux as an option for phones. Check his words : http://www.rasterman.com/index.php?page=News14:13
dvdkxiangfu: according to plplot build logs, pango installation is corrupt, its pkg-config entry lists libarries, that don't even exist14:13
bartbeszrafa: meego wasn't killed, was it?14:13
bartbesnokia stopped working on it14:14
bartbesbut intel's still there14:14
dvdkcu14:14
zrafabartbes: yes, it is not killed. But well, there is a lot of noise about which is the future..14:15
zrafabartbes: and the part of OS for phones on meego was made mainly by nokia I think. Moblin for intel was more for tablets or netbooks14:17
xiangfukyak: let's think about "fbgs and gs" after this release. I will try to fix the sound module first. it's a very BIG bug.14:22
Action: xiangfu like the supertux .14:22
xiangfuthe icons and more program in gmenu2x. make gmenu2x load slow.14:24
wpwraktuxbrain_away: are you looking for a high-res version of an existing picture ? if yes, just tell me which one and i'll dig out the original :)14:27

zrafasound*14:47

zrafaxiangfu: the kernel changedÂ?14:49
zrafa?14:49
xiangfukernel update to 2.6.32.27.14:49
zrafaand the module is old right?14:49
xiangfuthose source code still for 2.6.32.25.14:49
xiangfuright.14:49
zrafaxiangfu: why did the kernel change? sorr for many questions :P14:50
xiangfuchecking now...14:51
wpwraktuxbrain_away: (ubb on white paper) i just snapped this: http://downloads.qi-hardware.com/people/werner/ubb/IMG_0990.JPG14:57
wpwraktuxbrain_away: note that your will look different, because they'll have solder mask and silk screen on top of the copper14:58
wpwrakzrafa: (raster) yeah, i don't think he'd want to trade places with the nokia folks anytime soon ;-)14:59
tuxbrain_awaywpwrak: yes I know, I will put a note in the product description about this are pictures on the prototipe, the production one might look different, and once  I have a production one I will put real pics, btw good pic :)14:59
steve|mhttp://bb.osmocom.org/trac/attachment/wiki/SciphoneDreamG2/microsd_extension.jpg15:05

wpwraknice cables :)15:08
steve|mreally cool stuff, marcin has opie running on the sciphone: http://bb.osmocom.org/trac/wiki/SciphoneDreamG2#RunningLinuxdistro15:08
steve|mnow someone just needs to get the GSM stuff working on the mediatek basebands15:09
steve|m*just*15:09
wpwraki think they need someone with cpld knowledge who can hack an SD protocol to whatever converter ;-)15:10
wpwrakanyway, back to fixing the atben layout ...15:12
tuxbrain_awaywpwrak: I'm courious on the new size of atben :), you will reach the spetec wifi size level? :P15:14
steve|mwpwrak: btw, do you apply the Sn to your pcbs chemically or by applying and heating solder paste?15:18
rejonthat is cool steve|m15:26
wpwraktuxbrain_away: it'll be about the same size as the models without a crystal. a little bit longer, 0.1 mm wider.15:26
wpwraksteve|m: i flux the board, then apply solder with the soldering iron. simple but effective ;-)15:27
steve|mwpwrak: ah, okay :)15:31
Action: steve|m is getting all the needed stuff for etching pcbs15:31
wpwraksteve|m: what's important is a good flux. RA works well but is quite sticky. water soluble leaves a lot less of a mess. supposedly, it's difficult to remove, though. well, i'll see about that when any residues have etched though any of my circuits ;-)15:35
wpwraksteve|m: i had bad experiences with "no clean" flux. performed very poorly.15:36
wpwrakpoor flux = more heat needed15:36
wpwrakmore heat = traces/pads come off more easily15:36
steve|mwpwrak: ah, okay.. thanks for the hint15:38
steve|mwpwrak: for applying Sn I guess I'll try this approach first: http://thomaspfeifer.net/platinen_verzinnen.htm (if I can find that stuff in my local diy store)15:40
wpwraksteve|m: looks good, too15:54
tuxbrain_awaywpwrak: any link with the steps to flash the atmega microcontroler?16:02
wpwraktuxbrain_away: on the uart board ? just the Makefile :)16:16
wpwrakor do you mean atusb ? there, it's ... just the Makefile :)16:16
wpwraknote that you need a patched avrdude. the patches are currently in the uart project. i'll find a better location later.16:17
tuxbrain_awaywhen I try it my self I will do a proper howto.... developers... sigh...16:21
tuxbrain_away:P16:21
wpwrakthat's not "developers ... sigh". that's "Developers !! Developers !! Developers !!". learn from M$ ;-)16:26
Action: wpwrak dodges a flying chair16:26
kristianpaultuxbrain_away: how to for a Makefile?16:47
rjeffriestuxbrain are you here16:52
rjeffriestuxbrain_away I mean16:52
tuxbrain_awayyes kristianpaul, remeber we are also targeting Arduino hobbists (like me) so explaining what is doing the make file, having the avrdude patched as ipkg, the schema with the conections and whatever that make easier to reproduce the experiment is worth the effort....16:53
zrafarjeffries: he is in spaim and their nice govs do not let him download stuff anymore :(16:53

wpwrakrjeffries: btw, http://www.tuxbrain.com/en/content/nanonote-finds-equilibrium17:23
bartbesrjeffries: you should totally use diaspora17:24
wpwrakrjeffries: or also http://en.qi-hardware.com/wiki/Community_news_2010-08-11#Ben_NanoNote17:24
rjeffriesbarthes identi.ca was first open twitter-a-like The founder is a GREAT open source guy17:29
mththe security problems found in the first version of diaspora suggest that the developers didn't understand at all how to build a secure web app17:30
mththey have since fixed the holes that were pointed out, but I don't know if they also adopted a safer coding style17:30
rjeffriesmth bartbes I was a very early adopter of identi.ca (subscriber #141) in fact I think I was the first to sign up who was not part of the alpha test.17:31
rjeffriesdiaspora is a different recipie for the same dish. anybody in the open source world belongs on http://identi.ca free and libre17:32
tuxbrain_awayrjeffries:  and all ... https://www.tuxbrain.net/shop/product_info.php?products_id=188017:32
bartbesrjeffries: indenti.ca is twitter-like, right? so 140 chars and stuff17:33
bartbesanyway17:33
bartbesnext time spell my name right..17:33
bartbesthat's what that tab key is for17:33
bartbes:P17:33
rjeffriestab key?17:34
rjeffriesI use smuxi17:34
rjeffriesbarthbes identi.ca as a service continues 140 cahr BUT status.net provides complete flexibility to set your own limit17:35
rjeffriesstatys.net is the software under the identi.ca service17:35
mthrjeffries: I'll remember identi.ca, but so far I didn't feel a need for microblogging17:35
rjeffriesmth understood irc is great for a focused community such as qi-hqardware offers17:36
rjeffriesstatus.net <--correction17:36
rjeffriestuxbrain_away is the 35 Euro price valid for order from USA? for qty 10. Paypal or credit card?17:38
tuxbrain_awayis 30¬+27,20¬(shipping) to US for 10units whatever, paypal has a 2,4% of additional charge17:40
zrafawpwrak: (where laws aren't very strictly enforced) and your country has some Fundacion Via Libre fighting against all the goverments and enterprises trying to put those stupid laws :)17:43
wpwrakzrafa: yeah, but i guess spain has terro... err ... foreign agen ... i mean dissidents too17:44
wpwraktuxbrain_away: (ubb) "is tinny PCB" i think you mean "[it] is a tiny"17:47
wpwraktuxbrain_away: also, it doens't "expose the 8 GPIOs". there are only 6 GPIOs, plus power (permanent GND and switchable 3.3V V) you could write "8 contacts"17:48
tuxbrain_awayfixed :P17:49
wpwraktuxbrain_away: i would also suggest to put the final prices next to the list of different quantities. e.g., not just "bag with 50xUBB" but "bag with 50xUBB (EUR 94.40)"17:52
wpwrakin the title, maybe also put the quantity for which the price applies, e.g.. "35,40 EUR (10 units)"17:54
wpwraktuxbrain_away: for the small image, maybe use this as the basis: http://downloads.qi-hardware.com/people/werner/ubb/IMG_0990.xcf (better contrast, corrected rotation)18:04
tuxbrain_awaywpwrak: the problem with that is that in some places tax applies and some places not, and is automatically calculated once logged and i think will create more confusion than help, and regarding the amuount on topic.. well I will put (min 10 units) due the same item is used for 10, 50,100 or 50018:23
wpwrakcan you mention the price with or without tax ?18:26
wpwrakit's rather confusing if you have to add the price in your head18:27
tuxbrain_awayok  pic and price fixed18:34
wpwraknice !18:44
garretrazielhello, new owner of ben here20:32
garretrazielI have only few questions. First one is that on the Qi website there is that newest image of OpenWRT for nanonote is from 2/14/2011, but when I run script reflash_ben, it downloads and install version from 12/14/2010.20:34
steve|mwpwrak: nice, the toner-transfer seems to work quite well with my Laserjet P1006 printing on the paper of a Conrad-catalog and toner level set to "Extra Dark" ;)20:42
sseagogarretraziel, latest build is still being tested -- it's not released yet apparently20:55
garretrazielsseago: OK, thanks. next question is about gcc. I thought that nanonote hasn't gcc included but I have found it in it (and that is very, very nice). But it isn't working, it says to fail load some libopcodes module. Is gcc working?20:59
sseagogarretraziel, you'll have to wait for someone else for other questions probably -- I'm a new owner here too just figuring out what's going on21:00
garretrazielsseago: ok, thanks anyway :-). and nethack isn't working neither :-(. that is shame.21:02
dvdkgarretraziel: 02-14 image is not yet up for download.  don't worry will be available in a few days, you can check here, which images are vailable:  http://downloads.qi-hardware.com/software/images/Ben_NanoNote_2GB_NAND/21:26
wpwraksteve|m: (conrad) nice ;-))21:46
wpwraktuxbrain_away: i wonder if the "(min. 10x)" isn't ambiguous. one could think the unit price is EUR 35.40 and the minimum order quantity is 10. I think it would be clearer without the "min."22:37
wpwraktuxbrain_away: btw, would you mind posting the specs from the pcb fab ?23:20
tuxbrain_awaywpwrak: (min) is editable :) and I'm the shop owner so no problem :)23:42
tuxbrain_awaywpwrak: (specs) what do you mean?23:42
wpwraktuxbrain_away: the board specification they sent you in the quote (or the whole quote if you don't mind revealing the production cost)23:44
tuxbrain_awayI will add a full report on manufacturing on the wiki, but not today.. I will wait until I see the result and I have time... even maybe if the manufacturers agree, have a visit well will see, regarding price...  an euro unit first 500 , cheaper next 500 the exact price of the second batchs well be known once the second batch is inquired :P23:52
