ArtlavGot a question about NanoNote - compiling the softwawre, based 1012-10-24 openwrt image.09:47
ArtlavHow do you remove the boot-up logo? Alternatively, how do you make it disappear after reaching command line?09:47
ArtlavTrouble is, it reduces the screen to a single line.09:48
ArtlavI'm not using the gmenu2x.09:48
larscyou can disable it by setting CONFIG_LOGO to n in your kernel config09:52
larscbut maybe typing `reset` or `clear` will also make it go away09:55
larscand a suspend resume cycle will also make it go away09:56
ArtlavI'll try that, thanks. Another one - how to prevent the screen from turning off after 30 seconds or so?09:57
ArtlavAnd a third one - in the regular firmware, pressing the power key turns the device off. Where does this being handled? 10:05
larscthe button is handled by some daemon, can't remember it's name right know, but you should be able to find the config files in /etc/10:07
larsc`setterm -blank` disables auto blanking10:08
wpwrakthe super-short timeout and the overly trigger-happy power button are indeed somewhat annoying features. i wonder if anyone actually likes the timeout the way it is (?)10:13
ArtlavThe daemon is called trigger-happy, it seems. It was not starting.10:13
Artlavsetterm -blank does not seem to work.10:14
ArtlavThe kernel is in "build_dir/linux-xburst_qi_lb60/linux-3.3.8", right? Can't seem to get it to recompile.10:15
wpwrakoh, is that "thd" ? wow, i didn't think i could just guess the name ;-)10:16
larscwpwrak: yea, that was a pretty impressive10:17
ArtlavBy the way, wpwrak - remember this? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ChNsagwf_9A10:18
ArtlavIt fixed itself a few days ago, when i dug my nanonote out of the pile of broken/unused stuff, and accidentally dropped it. Turns out there was some sort of connection issue on the screen side.10:20
wpwrak(kernel) this is how i built the owrt kernel a few weeks ago: http://pastebin.ca/231336210:20
wpwrak(drop) old technician trick: if it doesn't work, kick it :)10:21
ArtlavWell, back then i liked it too much to hit it hard enough. :)10:23
ArtlavSo, what about the blanking?10:26
wpwrakdid we go through the "open ben and check flat cable connection" routine back then ?10:26
ArtlavYes, on both sides. No amount of flexing, cleaning, tapping, etc did anything.10:27
wpwrakmmh. then the problem will eventually return :(10:29
ArtlavOk, setterm -blank 0 did help after all.10:43
ArtlavThe kernel, howeve, stubbornly refuses to recompile with changes. Should i just make clean in it?10:51
wpwraknot sure how that works. maybe try to find the error ?10:53
ArtlavNo error. Just changes don't happen - logo stays, /proc/config.gz shown old .config.10:58
wpwrakdoes the kernel build date (uname -v) look right ?10:59
ArtlavYes, it rebuilds all right.11:03
wpwraki mean the running kernel. does it identify with a "new" date ?11:03
ArtlavYes, that too.11:04
wpwrakhmm. then perhaps the change wasn't quite right :)11:07
larschow did you change your config?11:19
ArtlavDirectly, then make kernel_menuconfig. 11:28
wpwrakdid you check in menuconfig that it took your change ?11:29
larscArtlav: which file did you edit?11:31
ArtlavIt is disabled in menuconfig regardless of .config settings, or so it looks.11:31
ArtlavAnyway, that's not a big problem.11:33
wpwrakif it's disables regardless, then the problem is usually in the config dependencies11:35
wpwraksometimes you have to enable weird stuff to finally get what you want11:36
ArtlavOk, now it's a problem. Did a make clean in build_dir/linux-xburst_qi_lb60/linux-3.3.8, then make in root - still no changes.12:04
ArtlavMaybe it's not CONFIG_LOGO?12:04
ArtlavWait, what is .config.target?12:06
ArtlavIn .config.target the CONFIG_LOGO and CONFIG_LOGO_NANONOTE_CLUT224 keep resetting themselves to y.12:19
ArtlavAnd that's the file that matters, not .config. Any advice better than direct intervention in the code?12:20
wpwraki vaguely recall that  make kernel_menuconfig  was sufficient to change the kernel configuration (followed simply by make)12:26
ArtlavWell, something somewhere become deviated from the existing understanding. :)12:27
ArtlavSolved the logo problem by tweaking logo.c12:27
ArtlavSummarily, thanks everyone for helping.12:29

kyakwonder who comes up with names for qi-hardware.com subdomains :)15:03
wpwrakyou mean the hosts ? 15:05
kyakyeah, i mean *.qi-hardware.com15:06
wpwrakwolfgang, i guess. fidelio and turandot are the names of operas15:11
