[5:48] <Meizirkki> dpb: in your country yet?
[5:49] <dpb> Came yesterday morning.
[5:49] <Meizirkki> mine too
[5:49] <dpb> I know. I read it from the backlog. :)
[5:49] <Meizirkki> i just can't keep my mouth shut ;)
[5:49] <dpb> :)
[5:50] <Corsac> still no news from local post office :)
[5:51] <Meizirkki> I have been calling aroud post and [toll/duty] offices today
[5:51] <dpb> And?
[5:51] <Stskeeps> Meizirkki: probably has to go through toll first
[5:51] <Stskeeps> takes ages
[5:51] <Meizirkki> really?
[5:51] <dpb> Did you find out anything with the calls?
[5:52] <Meizirkki> Nah, i just tried to find some kind of possibility to get it before the weekend
[5:52] <Meizirkki> Stskeeps, it really takes long?
[5:54] * Meizirkki is too unpatient ;)
[5:55] <DJWillis> Customs can eat posts for ages :-o

[5:57] <Eruquen> mine is just a few blocks away but it seems like our local postal service is too lazy to bring it to customs (they are basically in the same building)
[5:58] <elmato> shmick... I was about to ask if anyone had played with maemo yet :P
[6:02] <DJWillis> Stskeeps: sorry, for some reason I thought you had a Beagle :o, next question, why not ;-), I am supprised considering what you have been working on that TI have not offered you one :(.

[6:52] <martinh> ok. so, after running the tslib calibration stuff, it's much better about the amount of pressure it takes to register a touch.

[6:56] <DJWillis> Hehe, it's like a bunch of kids at Christmas round these parts ;-)
[6:56] <Brizzyce> It definitely is haha
[7:07] <martinh> that's about right. . .
[7:07] <martinh> and, once you have it, it'll be 6 months worth of christmas day.

[13:57] <Brizzyce> FINALLY
[13:57] <Brizzyce> I finally have my TB
[13:57] <Corsac> mpf ><
[13:58] <Brizzyce> International order too :)
[14:01] <derken> congrats! what country?
[14:01] <Zygo> and when did you order it?
[14:01] <Brizzyce> Canada, so not really that international, but I'm still a good 3000 or so km from where it was shipped.
[14:02] <Brizzyce> I ordered July 16
[14:02] <derken> mine's currently at customs in the Netherlands
[14:02] <Brizzyce> My order was processed Oct 1, and it shipped Oct 9
[14:03] <derken> I ordered on the 18th of sept.
[14:04] <Brizzyce> Of course, now I have to wait 6-10 hours before I can use it since it needs charging =\
[14:05] <derken> I thought you could start using it right away as long as you kept it charging
[14:05] <Brizzyce> Ah, it seems that may be the case, since the tablet needs to be on to charge
[14:08] <derken> what's your first impression?
[14:09] <Brizzyce> It looks good. I wasn't sure what I'd think about the red colour, but I'm really digging it. It's not as flimsy as some other people have suggested, but it's not built like a brick either.
[14:10] <Brizzyce> I'll definitely be getting a protective case for it
[14:10] <Brizzyce> I don't think I'm any more likely to break it than I am an ordinary laptop
[14:11] <Brizzyce> The line-in input is not aligned properly with the holy in the case, so it's going to be tricky to get a plug in there without voiding the warranty, but luckily the microphone jack is located properly
[14:13] <Brizzyce> *hole
[14:13] * hyc (n=hyc@ Quit ("Leaving.")
[14:13] <Brizzyce> About to turn it on
[14:13] * hyc (n=hyc@ has joined #touchbook
[14:14] <Brizzyce> There's the tipping issue, of course, but there's so many ways to get around it, like having something behind it to prevent the top part from coming down
[14:15] <Brizzyce> It's booting up now
[14:18] <Brizzyce> That didn't take long. I'll be sending this back, since there's a huge problem with the hardware. The left mouse button doesn't work. It's like it's constantly pressed down. The right one works, but there's no distinct "click" with the left.
[14:19] <yoru> well that seems nice.
[14:19] <Corsac> maybe check there's nothing stuck?
[14:20] <Brizzyce> There's nothing in there preventing it from being pushed down, it just doesn't...click
[14:21] <martinh> hmmm. i think the sensitivity on the ai_daemon rotation needs to be turned down a bit.
[14:21] <martinh> now. . .is that configurable. or, is that hard coded. . .
[14:21] <martinh> will have to look at home tonite.
[14:22] * setanta (n=setanta@ Quit (Read error: 60 (Operation timed out))
[14:24] <andrewgodwin> Brizzyce: someone else had that issue, I think they sent the KB part back for a replacement
[14:24] <andrewgodwin> contact AI :)
[14:24] <Brizzyce> Ah, that's a good point, hopefully I won't have to send back the whole thing!
[14:24] <derken> right, no need to send the entire touchbook back
[14:31] <andrewgodwin> now if the screen's digitiser had a problem, that WOULD be bad
[14:31] <andrewgodwin> but yes, it's nice you can send in the KB with no issues
[14:32] <andrewgodwin> if it works out, I might end up getting two for ultra-long-battery-life
[14:32] <Brizzyce> Alright, I just emailed AI, hopefully it gets sorted out
[14:32] <Brizzyce> Man, what a buzzkill
[14:32] <andrewgodwin> yeah :( I hope mine's alright

[14:34] <Brizzyce> Does anyone know how shipping costs work for this sort of thing? I'm not going to have to pay out of my own pocket to have a new one shipped and to ship this back, am I?
[14:46] <Brizzyce> Aside from the keyboard issue, things are solid so far
[14:49] <andrewgodwin> Brizzyce: how does the build quality feel?
[14:49] <andrewgodwin> i've heard the catches can feel a bit plasticy
[14:50] <Brizzyce> I haven't used it purely in tablet mode yet, but so far so good. Better than I was expecting
[14:52] <Brizzyce> It doesn't feel cheap, but plasticy is a good word to describe it
[14:53] <Brizzyce> It won't let me connect to WiFi ><
[14:55] <Brizzyce> "Could not get IP address"
[14:55] <Brizzyce> Oh well, I
[14:56] <Brizzyce> I'll look into that later
[14:56] <Brizzyce> The keyboard feels awkward as hell at first, but I can see myself getting used to it pretty fast
[15:00] <martinh> yea. it doesn't feel anywhere near as awkard as my eee did.
[15:00] <martinh> this one is relatively sane.
[15:01] <martinh> right shift is still a pain, but i'm getting used to that.
[15:03] <Brizzyce> <--- Idiot
[15:03] <Brizzyce> WiFi works fine
[15:03] <Brizzyce> I put in the wrong password haha
[15:05] <Brizzyce> The resolution is surpisingly nice while browsing webpages, I don't feel like I'm limited at all in that sense
[15:06] <andrewgodwin> Brizzyce: yay!

[16:03] <short> has anyone managed to get a cross compilation environment working?
[16:09] <hyc> yes
[16:11] <short> I keep getting errors when I use mine. I have it in a Debian virtual machine
[16:13] <short> I'm using the directions from the wiki, with a whitelist modification for bitbake to make it so I didn't hardcode the directory... but every so often it fails to build a task and dies
[16:13] <hyc> what error does it get?
[16:14] <hyc> just saying "I keep getting errors" doesn't tell anything useful
[16:15] <short> just a failure on one of the tasks, and it refuses to continue... right now I wiped out the dev directory, and am starting again from scratch with the bitbake build
[16:15] <short> sorry, about just saying errors, just don't know how to clasify it
[16:15] <hyc> if that's all you can tell, then you're not going to be a very effective developer.
[16:15] <hyc> there are log files for everything that bitbake does.
[16:16] <hyc> it will never just die without leaving a record of exactly what it was trying to do, and what went wrong.
[16:16] <short> okay, I'm just going to hunt down the documentation on bitbake. I need to read that a couple of times before I do anything more
[16:17] <hyc> every time a task fails the error message tells you explicitly "see such-and-such logfile"
[16:17] <hyc> all you have to do is pay attention to the messages it prints out, and read the logfile it tells you to look at.
[16:18] <short> okay, I guess I missed those comments.
[16:20] <short> when I get back to the failures I will read through the log file associated with it.
[16:21] <short> Also, does the psycho jit actually improve performance of bitbake?
[16:21] <hyc> no idea
[16:21] <hyc> bitbake is certainly a pig though, it can use all the help it can get
[16:23] <short> yeah, it is
[16:30] <martinh> hmmm. my feet are falling off.

[17:39] <short> hyc: looks like the errors might have been segmentation faults. I should probably consider an actual install of linux instead of a virtual machine. It might be how virtual box is handling my memory that might be causing the issue.
[17:40] <hyc> yeah, I wouldn't waste my time with a VM if I didn't have too
[17:42] <short> Do you think I should stick with Debian then, or should I consider another distro for a full install?

[17:50] * robclark (n=robclark@ Quit (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
[17:50] <short> on the TB?
[17:50] <zooko> Yeah.
[17:51] <zooko> Ubuntu has a new ARM porting project.
[17:52] <short> haven't tried it yet, and haven't heard of anyone taking that on right now...
[17:53] <short> It has been mentioned though
[17:53] <short> Right now I think people are more eager to get the AI OS streamlined first
[17:54] <hyc> short: I'm building on ubuntu but it's close enough. pick whatever you like
[17:55] <hyc> as far as I know the ubuntu ARM binaries target ARMv6, so they won't take full advantage of the TB (ARMv7)
[17:55] <hyc> therefore, binaries will be slower than they could be...
[18:00] * alongst (n=alon@ Quit (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
[18:02] <short> It looks like they are going with a minimum of the ARMv5t instruction set with v6 and v7 optimized libraries where there is expected "significant performance gain" so probably quite a bit slower than they could be on the TB

[19:02] <Managu_tb> Anyone had any luck getting a TB to boot with anything but the stock kernel?
[19:04] <Managu_tb> I tried building a kernel using the directions on the wiki (Cross_compiler). But when I try to run it, all I get is a blank screen. Now, from what I can see, the change set posted to the wiki (under "Kernel") has already made it into the OE git repository
[19:06] <Managu_tb> I've also tinkered a bit with the u-boot setup. Replacing the stock u-boot with my build u-boot gets rid of the AI logo on the startup screen, and introduces some delay (5 sec for serial terminal?) but otherwise works fine with the stock kernel
[19:07] <shtylman> Managu_tb: yea... I built a kernel with openembedded and that booted
[19:07] <shtylman> make sure you have machine=omap3-touchbook
[19:08] <Managu_tb> yup, got that
[19:08] <Managu_tb> shtylman: did you set up a boot.scr file?
[19:09] <shtylman> nope
[19:09] <Managu_tb> hrmm. did you replace the image as well? E.g. x11-image. Or stock AI image?
[19:10] <shtylman> I compiled the console-image
[19:10] <shtylman> to first see if I could get something running
[19:10] <shtylman> and that worked
[19:10] <Managu_tb> disk layout? fat32 / ext3 / swap?
[19:11] <shtylman> yep
[19:11] <Managu_tb> keyboard work?
[19:11] <shtylman> I could type :)
[19:11] <Managu_tb> cool. I must be doing something silly wrong, then.
[19:12] <shtylman> now...I didn't replace the stock uboot
[19:12] <shtylman> that might be something to note
[19:12] <Managu_tb> ok, worth trying
[19:13] <Managu_tb> had any more luck with the ts calibration? I notice (even with tslib), that on pendown/penup there seems to be really bad inaccuracy
[19:13] <shtylman> havn't had a change to play with it more
[19:13] <shtylman> yea...there were still a few inaccuracies

[19:34] <Brizzyce> My TB arrived today with a defective keyboard attachment, so I emailed them and asked for a replacement. Now I have to pay to ship their defective part back to them, and because I live in Canada (about 30 minutes north of the border,) I might have to pay shipping on getting my new, hopefully non-defective, part too.

[20:24] <shtylman> software I get takes time for a new device like this

[20:26] <shtylman> the tipping
[20:27] <shtylman> the keyboard space key and the edge of the trackpad when you press the space key. the lack of power indicator light, the *needs to be on* to charge
