[7:07] <Sn0wman> I got mine off of ebay for just under $400 because I didn't want to wait that long
[7:09] <christoph_debian> also a solution :) but ordered on directly now
[7:10] <Sn0wman> hehe that works. But you get everything nice and fresh :->

[11:03] <koen> hyc: http://www.angstrom-distribution.org/repo/
[11:05] <gregoiregentil> Hourra, Koen is still alive! ;-)
[11:05] * koen is having a vacation and tries to use a computer as little as possible
[11:05] <gregoiregentil> you mean Koen is having vacationssss and ...
[11:07] <gregoiregentil> arora seems to be qt-dependent! 120MB download just to compile. I think that I will stay away
[11:07] <gregoiregentil> ai-os image is already 700MB now...
[11:08] <koen> arora needs qt4, yes
[11:08] <gregoiregentil> The touchscreen in xournal works extremely well
[11:08] <gregoiregentil> but in the ai-menu (3D animation), it TOTALLY sucks
[11:09] <gregoiregentil> I'm not sure to understand where problem lies
[11:09] <gregoiregentil> has anyone tried ts.conf settings? Like other module or variables?
[11:09] <gregoiregentil> Has xournal any special handling of touchscreen? Asking before I start reading the code to figure out
[11:10] <koen> I suspect xournal gets its events from the xserver and doesn't know about touchscreen at all
[11:11] <gregoiregentil> I guess so too
[11:11] <koen> gregoiregentil: any news on better drivers for the bqi and twl battery stuff?
[11:11] <koen> or rather, drivers with better sysfs reporting
[11:12] <gregoiregentil> bq: there is an enhancement script which gives better result. But there is a small bug in 2009-12.a. SHould be fixed shortly
[11:12] <gregoiregentil> for twl, working hard with TI. (meaning sending nuclear nukes everyday to TPS team)
[11:13] * koen is fairly happy customers are having their vacations as well
[11:13] <koen> well, most of them, anyway
[11:13] <koen> crazy alwaysinnovating dudes never sleep ;)
[11:15] * azaghal_ (n=azaghal@ Quit ("Lost terminal")
[11:16] <gregoiregentil> There are a few bugs in 2009-12.a (that will be fixed in an early 2010-01.a) but I must say that I'm quite happy/proud of 2009-12.a Openoffice, multi-boot, 20s-reset, ubuntu, android, latest xorg, better touchscreen, youtube, hulu. That starts to be a very exhaustive offering...
[11:17] <gregoiregentil> also, I have now a very-working DSP video... with dsp-bridge.
[11:18] <tommd> Using closed TI software?
[11:18] <tommd> Or the open one... can't recall what its called.
[11:19] <martinh> anyone thought of porting chumby stuff to the tb?
[11:19] <gregoiregentil> semi-open for dsp-bridge
[11:19] <koen> martinh: with porting you mean recompiling?
[11:20] <martinh> actually. . .it may just be something you could run as it stands. but, basically, doing whatever it takes to have a chumby window on the tb.
[11:20] <koen> gregoiregentil: I have a big update for OE pending where everything (minus codegen) gets fetched automatically for codec-engine
[11:21] <gregoiregentil> cool. dsp-link compiles for me but I didn't really manage to make it work on the device
[11:21] <martinh> it just occured to me that it would be kinda cool to have. having recently bought the chumby guts from the maker store.
[11:22] <gregoiregentil> I'm not sure to understand. Chumby is a device. So they have their own software stuff
[11:23] <martinh> yea. basically flash style applets that run and do various things.
[11:23] * MikeEvans (n=MikeEvan@tandem.force9.co.uk) has joined #touchbook
[11:23] <martinh> you can go to chumby.com and setup a virtual chumby to get a basic idea.
[11:24] <martinh> I think I'll play with it. that's got some potential.
[11:24] <koen> hyc: http://scap.linuxtogo.org/files/a2a6a6271c0a5560b118c053abf54b13.png
[11:25] <martinh> leveraging all their widgets would give a whole lot more stuff to do.
[11:26] <koen> gregoiregentil: funnily enough there was a mail 15 minutes ago to l-o ml about getting the TPS charger into mainline linux
[11:26] <gregoiregentil> yup. I just read it!
[11:28] <koen> gregoiregentil: btw: http://dominion.thruhere.net/git/cgit.cgi/xf86-video-omapfb/commit/?h=koen/fixups&id=a94d3f203c7e3586f553c548f5cb382ae73c71eb
[11:29] <gregoiregentil> Does it work? ;-)
[11:30] <koen> 60%
[11:30] <MikeEvans> hi is there any info on the shipment made on 22 Dec? I got an email saying that my unit shipped that day but so far it shows only as "Electronic Shipping Info Received" on the USPS site
[11:30] <koen> Eino said he'd do a better version when he's finished writing his paper
[11:30] <koen> gregoiregentil: it's from the camera 2.0 folks at stanford.edu
[11:30] <gregoiregentil> MikeEvans: US or international?
[11:30] <MikeEvans> international
[11:31] <MikeEvans> CJ23 6832 125U S to be specific
[11:31] <gregoiregentil> USPS is very slow to update info for international order. It should be on its way
[11:32] <MikeEvans> ah - that's great news - thank you
[11:32] <MikeEvans> of course nothing much happens over the holidays
[11:32] <gregoiregentil> yup

[18:47] <gregoiregentil> it's working on 2009-12.a
[18:47] <gregoiregentil> there is a little bit of desynchronization between audio and video but it's working on both Midori and Firefox
[18:52] <G7KES> hmmm... okay... so do I do opkg install flashplayer
[18:52] <G7KES> or something?
[18:53] <gregoiregentil> no. you need the full 2009-12.a. do you have it?
[18:53] <gregoiregentil> you can reinstall from the Touch Book itself now
[18:53] <G7KES> I have 2009-12.a :-)
[18:53] <gregoiregentil> and it's not working?
[18:53] <gregoiregentil> it's working for me here. On a clean install

[18:59] <gregoiregentil> yes.
[18:59] <azul> woo
[19:00] <azul> other than that, the tb is superb!
[19:00] <gregoiregentil> Cool! Thanks. There will be some other improvements in the coming weeks. We are not stopping here...
[19:02] <G7KES> (trying it again here...)
[19:09] <G7KES> well... its still transferring...
[19:10] <G7KES> Oh my goodness

[19:12] * tommd (n=Thomas_D@65-102-11-148.ptld.qwest.net) has joined #touchbook
[19:12] <G7KES> couldn't get it working in Chromium.
[19:12] <gregoiregentil> Midori is a little bit faster.
[19:13] <gregoiregentil> No, Chromium is not working for youtube in this version. Should work in next version
[19:13] <G7KES> Okay, I may try that. How are you getting along with your GPS?
[19:13] <G7KES> I got mine working today :-)
[19:13] <gregoiregentil> I will have it tomorrow. Then, I will work on it
[19:13] <G7KES> Okay, take a look in the forums.
[19:13] <G7KES> I have left a link there.
[19:13] <gregoiregentil> ok
[19:14] <G7KES> Its an Indian guy who has the same bluetooth GPS as I have.
[19:14] <G7KES> works well.
[19:15] <gregoiregentil> OK. Cool
