[6:12] <born_> Aloha, I screwed up my bootargs. The system won't boot anymore.
[6:12] * MMlosh (~MMlosh@2001:470:1f0b:b78:48ba:6c76:4dc3:e291) has joined #touchbook
[6:12] <born_> After formatting my sd card with a new image, it still won't boot up
[6:15] <born_> Then I placed the boot.scr file from the alwaysinnovating.com/downloads/boot.scr file in the first partition of that sd card and it still won't boot up.
[6:15] <born_> What might I do wrong?
[6:17] <born_> I am using the ai image 2010-01.b
[6:18] <Meizirkki> hmm
[6:18] <Meizirkki> boot.scr did not work for me either ..
[6:19] <born_> On startup I see the white ai image, which then fades in and out a couple of times. After that there are some random visual effects on the screen and that's it
[6:19] <Meizirkki> so what happens? The screen goes WSOD or something ?
[6:20] <born_> maybe the boot.scr on the ai website is for the previous sd-card version?
[6:20] <born_> exactly
[6:21] <Meizirkki> The OS may boot up behind it.
[6:22] <Meizirkki> Do you see the b/w AI logo
[6:22] <Meizirkki> ?
[6:22] <born_> yes
[6:24] <Meizirkki> put this in the /etc/rc.local of AI OS:
[6:24] <Meizirkki> /usr/bin/ai/reset/reset-nand.sh -f -w
[6:24] <Meizirkki> It should set the bootargs back to normal
[6:24] <born_> after a few seconds it blends in with some brighter getting background. Then it is not distinguishable from the background anymore. After that the whole screen randomly show colors and finally turns black again
[6:24] <Meizirkki> see the above, try to run the /usr/bin/ai/reset/reset-nand.sh -f -w somehow
[6:25] <born_> how can I run the command without being booted up?
[6:27] <born_> I don't have a command prompt
[6:29] <Mrkva> born_: if you put it to /etc/rc.local, it runs automatically
[6:29] * jvs (~jvs@ Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[6:29] <Mrkva> so, if it boots with screen turned off, it could help
[6:29] <Mrkva> but personally, I'd use serial cable to see what's going on :)
[6:29] <born_> ahhh!
[6:30] <born_> good thinking :)
[6:38] * mcr (~mcr@2001:4830:16ca:1:20d:60ff:fefa:7f03) has joined #touchbook
[6:47] <born_> Mrkva, thank you for your suggestion. But it did not work. I believe I might have done something wrong. Since this is a fresh install there is only a /.overlay-ai-os/etc folder. There is no rc.local in there, So I created one granting 755 executive permissions. Is this correct?
[6:47] * phcoder (~phcoder@public-docking-hg-2-125.ethz.ch) Quit (Read error: Operation timed out)
[6:48] <born_> Anyhow, what is the difference between the .images and the /.overlay-ai-os tree? Both seem to be operating system related
[6:48] <Mrkva> born_: I assume you've never tried using serial cable, right?
[6:49] <Mrkva> (on TB)
[6:50] <born_> No, RS232 ?
[6:50] <Mrkva> yes
[6:51] <born_> My host machine is Mac and therefore missing a rs232 interface
[6:51] <Aard> born_: the os-images are squashfs-images, which are read only. to allow you changing stuff the overlay-directory gets mounted together with the squashfs using aufs
[6:52] <Aard> usb2serial adapters exist for a few bucks (or order one of the well known usb2serial chips as sample and build one by yourself)
[6:53] <born_> so this could be my mistake? If I find out how to mount them together, I should be able to modify the rc.local rather then to create a new one
[6:53] * leinir (~leinir@amarok/usability/leinir) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[6:53] <Aard> you'd just place your modified rc.local into the overlay filesystem
[6:55] * Vito__ (~quassel@ Quit (Ping timeout: 260 seconds)
[6:55] <Meizirkki> born_, are you sure it fully booted up ?
[6:55] <Mrkva> Aard: but I guess there's something with bootloader/kernel rather than not working display with system operational
[6:56] <Aard> if you just want to give one command: there's a virtual terminal on tty2 you can use
[6:56] <born_> Meizirkki, how would I know?
[6:56] <Mrkva> born_: -^
[6:56] <Aard> hook up a serial port :p
[6:57] <born_> you mean a serial cable?
[6:57] <Meizirkki> born_, the OS selection interface is still ran, click the left side of the screen when booting up (though i think there's a timelimit and then will boot the original os..)
[6:57] <born_> that is a good idea. I will try right now
[6:58] * leinir (~leinir@amarok/usability/leinir) has joined #touchbook
[7:00] <born_> clicking on the left screen didn't make a difference
[7:00] <born_> I clicked many time just to make sure
[7:01] <neal> The note about a 2 month delay before shipping has been on the web site for a while
[7:01] <neal> I just found out that I'm going to have a visitor from the US in 7 weeks
[7:02] <neal> if I order now, what's the chances that he will get it before he visits?

[7:03] <Meizirkki> Sorry for flooding :(
[7:03] <Meizirkki> err.
[7:03] <Meizirkki> Wait born_ i'll clean it up a bit
[7:03] <born_> Aard, how does the overlay work if there are two files with the same name? Are they getting merged?
[7:04] <Meizirkki> born_, the one in overlay is used
[7:04] <born_> okay
[7:04] <Meizirkki> born_, http://pastebin.com/Yub2mbCS
[7:05] <Meizirkki> That should fix it
[7:08] <Mrkva> Meizirkki: if his system won't even boot that won't fix anything
[7:08] * tommd (~Thomas_Du@65-102-41-188.ptld.qwest.net) has joined #touchbook
[7:09] <Meizirkki> Mrkva, true, but i if uboot shows up and load the kernel, i see no reason why the OS would not boot
[7:09] <Meizirkki> loads*
[7:10] <Meizirkki> Mrkva, Screen going wtf right after uboot sounds like wrong omapfb.vram bootarg
[7:10] <Aard> Meizirkki: if it's a custom kernel it won't boot if you messed up the initrd (didn't read enough backlog to know if that's the case here)
[7:12] <born_> Thank you Meizirkki, but it didn't work. It was worth a shot though
[7:13] <born_> I also clicked on the left side of the screen
[7:14] <Meizirkki> ok
[7:14] <Meizirkki> good luck with it :)
[7:16] <Aard> born_: you basically have two options to successfully find out what's going on. those are either fitting a serial port, or fitting a jtag header
[7:17] <born_> what is a jtag header?
[7:17] <Aard> if you don't know it won't help you
[7:17] <born_> :)
[7:18] <born_> okay, how do I connect a serial cable to the touchbook?
[7:18] <Aard> http://www.alwaysinnovating.com/wiki/index.php/Serial_cable
[7:18] <born_> btw here is what I did in order to mess it up
[7:19] <born_> I tried to change the color depth to 32 bit by following this advise: http://labs.trolltech.com/blogs/2009/11/20/building-qt-to-make-use-of-the-beagle-boards-sgx-gpu/ So I did this: fw_setenv bootargs="console=ttyS0,115200n8=noinitrd ip=dhcp rw root=/dev/mmcblk0p2 omapfb.mode=dvi:1280??720MR-24@60" /usr/sbin/fbset.real -depth 32 -rgba 8/16,8/8,8/0,8/24 and then I tried to reboot :) I know I should have been more carful, but someh
[7:19] <Mrkva> well, I understand why HTC sell android phones without root access
[7:19] <Mrkva> :)
[7:22] <born_> also, the inside bluetooth stick flashes as well as some other red light. So the system is not hung completely. I kind of liked Meizirkki's approach better ;)
[7:23] <Meizirkki> I still believe it boots.. is /etc/rc.local ran in Angtrom ?
[7:23] <born_> is there no log file I can take a look at?
[7:24] <Aard> just put an echo "Foo" > /somefile inte rc.local
[7:24] <Aard> if it's there after booting it comes up. if not...
[7:24] <born_> will do
[7:25] * phcoder (~phcoder@gprs29.swisscom-mobile.ch) has joined #touchbook
[7:25] <Mrkva> born_: and leave it "booting" for a reasonable time
[7:38] <born_> no luck
[7:38] <born_> does Angstrom run /etc.rc.local at startup at all?
[7:39] <born_> oops, /etc/rc.local
[7:40] <Mrkva> it should
[7:41] <Mrkva> (i assume)
[7:41] <Mrkva> born_: check /var/log
[7:41] <Mrkva> if there's any file modified the time you've tried to boot last time
[7:43] <Mrkva> sorry, have to go
[7:43] * Mrkva (~Mrkva@eduroam100.ms.mff.cuni.cz) Quit (Quit: leaving)
[7:45] <born_> there is no file modified today
[7:46] <born_> but then I don't know about the system time on the touchbook
[7:47] <born_> it could be off
[7:48] <born_> and the boot.scr file is supposed to be placed directly in / on the first partition?
[7:49] <born_> next to u-boot.bin ?
[7:50] <Meizirkki> born_, one more thing you can try, if you have ai-ui.tbz2 and ai-install.tbz2 on the first fat partition, keep your finger in the left-bottom corner while booting. It should go to the Advanced boot menu, when you have waited long enough you are sure it's there, type 7 and press enter. A console should open in 15 seconds and you can run the reset commend (/usr/bin/ai/reset/reset-nand.sh -f -w) from there
[7:51] <Meizirkki> You'll have to do it all blind, but that should work whether AI OS boots or not
[7:51] <born_> also a good idea. Will do now
[7:56] <born_> shall I reboot after issueing the command?
[7:56] <born_> maybe shutdown -r now in order to see if there was a command prompt
[8:00] <Meizirkki> reboot didn't work from the command line ..
[8:00] <Meizirkki> ctrl-alt-del will do it :P
[8:01] <born_> no
[8:01] <Meizirkki> imean the reboot command, dunno about shutdown -r
[8:02] <born_> no it didn't work
[8:04] <born_> I kind of remember that there was a different number just for resetting the nand
[8:04] <born_> a direct way from the advanced boot menu
[8:05] <Aard> born_: wait a second, I'll check
[8:06] <born_> also is it /usr/bin/ai/reset/reset-nand.sh or /usr/bin/ai/reset/nand-reset.sh ?
[8:07] <Aard> born_: there's no such option
[8:08] * tommd (~Thomas_Du@65-102-41-188.ptld.qwest.net) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[8:09] <Aard> it's /usr/bin/ai/reset/reset-nand.sh
[8:10] <born_> okay, I am asking because I cannot see it obviously and http://www.alwaysinnovating.com/wiki/index.php/Booting states the opposite
[8:16] <Aard> born_: btw, apparently rc.local does not get executed. tried adding a script to /etc/rcS.d?
[8:16] <Aard> like, S90reset which includes #!/bin/sh
[8:16] <Aard> /usr/bin/ai/reset/reset-nand.sh
[8:18] <Meizirkki> remember the -f and -w attributes too
[8:18] <Meizirkki> other wise it won't do anything but nagg about missing connection
[8:19] <born_> I tried both ways already and none lead to success ...
[8:19] <Aard> did you set the execute bit on the script? add some echo, too, to see if it gets executed
[8:20] <born_> sorry, I meant Meizirkki
[8:20] <JesusMcCloud> Hello everyone! I am considering bying a touchbook (i own and use an openmoko neo freerunner so i know all about rough edges) but i have a few questions:
[8:20] <Aard> seriously, in the time spent you'd easily have been able to solder the serial port and fix it
[8:20] <Meizirkki> hi JesusMcCloud
[8:21] <JesusMcCloud> i read in the forums that charging doesnt really work (takes long , need to charge without kbd first etc) als usb peripherals can cause problems when instered on bootup... are these showstoppers fixeD?
[8:21] <born_> I am not a hardware guy and probably would have broken even more. Plus, I don't have such cable. I would need to drive to the store ...
[8:21] <born_> But I get your point
[8:21] <leinir> JesusMcCloud: It takes a long time to charge because the battery is HUGE :)
[8:22] <Aard> no old modem cable you could use?
[8:22] <born_> also need a serial2usb adapter
[8:22] <Aard> try becoming a hardware guy, the touchbook really invites you to do hardware hacks :p
[8:23] <JesusMcCloud> so are there currently any hardware/lowlevel showstoppers ? (i dont care so much about buggy OS)
[8:23] <Meizirkki> JesusMcCloud, Top battery is only charging to 1/4 full on B1 revision afaik, but you can fix that with a soldering iron :P USB devices don't harm bootup on my TB
[8:23] <born_> well :)
[8:23] <Meizirkki> JesusMcCloud, dunno about charging issues on C1 boards though
[8:23] <Meizirkki> might be fixed
[8:23] <JesusMcCloud> so curretn rev is c1
[8:24] <Meizirkki> afaik yes
[8:24] <JesusMcCloud> Meizirkki, thanks
[8:24] <Aard> Meizirkki: oh, do you have a link for that b1 issue?
[8:24] <JesusMcCloud> leinir, define 'long'
[8:24] * Vito__ (~quassel@gw.loccal.net) has joined #touchbook
[8:25] <leinir> JesusMcCloud: Up to 14 hours if it's completely empty
[8:25] <Meizirkki> no really, it's just my own tests, during 18 hour charging top battery voltage never goes over 3.78 V
[8:25] <Meizirkki> Aard, ^
[8:26] <Aard> Meizirkki: what did you change?
[8:26] <Meizirkki> (my tests + all the people complaining about it)
[8:26] <JesusMcCloud> Meizirkki, leinir, any other showstoppers?
[8:27] <Aard> JesusMcCloud: power issues with usb
[8:27] <JesusMcCloud> Aard, ?
[8:27] <Meizirkki> Aard, i soldered the top battery to same cable with the bottom one
[8:27] <Meizirkki> so it charges now properly
[8:28] <Meizirkki> JesusMcCloud, afaik, there's not enough power on the USB for things like USB-hard-drive
[8:28] <Aard> JesusMcCloud: might shut down when plugging in usb devices, or shut down on bootup when only running from battery when usb-devices get initialized
[8:28] <Meizirkki> though, i can use usb-hdd while charger plugged
[8:28] <Aard> yes, usb is only an issue without charger
[8:29] <Meizirkki> "or shut down on bootup when only running from battery when usb-devices get initialized"
[8:29] <Meizirkki> ah i forgot about that one
[8:29] <Meizirkki> it's irritating..
[8:29] <JesusMcCloud> that was the one i mentined in my first question
[8:29] <Aard> this one _might_ be fixable in software, didn't have time to check so far
[8:29] <JesusMcCloud> is anyone of you a HW guy?
[8:30] <Meizirkki> I haven't found any usb-dogle that harms the bootup
[8:30] <JesusMcCloud> if init-ing usb causes a spark/sudden power drain a buffer capacitor might help?!
[8:30] <Aard> Meizirkki: with some bad luck having wifi and bluetooth plugged in is enough
[8:30] <Meizirkki> except for the power issue, the more devied you have plugged, the bigger risk it might not boot with low battery
[8:31] <Aard> JesusMcCloud: yes, that would be a possible hardware fix if it's not fixable in software
[8:32] <JesusMcCloud> i already have one device with hardware bugs (openmoko) i dont want another one, but the touchbook seems to be the perfect device for me and i dont want another device where i have to do soldering work
[8:33] <JesusMcCloud> is there any official statement about hardware issues from AI? (i suppose you guys are just users)
[8:33] <Aard> not that I know of
[8:34] <JesusMcCloud> that suck... i dont want to rely solely on luck
[8:34] <JesusMcCloud> s/suck.../sucks.../
[8:35] <Meizirkki> There's probably no official statements.. they have been quiet about hw bugs but everyone knows there are some
[8:35] <Meizirkki> afaik
[8:35] <JesusMcCloud> bastards...
[8:36] <leinir> We do have AI people on channel, mind
[8:37] <JesusMcCloud> well, i think i am still allowed to express my opinion
[8:37] <leinir> Oh of course, i'm just saying :)
[8:37] <leinir> Like the boss of AI *points to gregoiregentil* :)
[8:38] <JesusMcCloud> leinir, he just PM'd me...
[8:39] <JesusMcCloud> and as i said i dont expect flawless software just yet, i just want a hw platform i can play aroudn with
[8:40] <JesusMcCloud> and srsly where's the fun with perfect software?!
[8:40] <JesusMcCloud> and i am well aware of how difficult it is to trace down hardware bugs, especially if they are layout bugs
[8:41] <JesusMcCloud> and especially when it comes to high frequency stuff... it is like voodoo
[8:42] <gregoiregentil> no, there is not high frequency hardware bug and such problem has never been reported
[8:43] <JesusMcCloud> gregoiregentil, i was just saying huntign hardware bugs is a pain in the ass
[8:43] <gregoiregentil> yup. I know

[8:45] <JesusMcCloud> *IF* the current hw bugs are all fixable using a soldering iron (and no SMD seldering is required) i might be willing to buy a current TB
[8:46] <Martix> which hw bugs you mean?
[8:47] <JesusMcCloud> Martix, charing top battery, booting with usb peripherals connected
[8:47] <JesusMcCloud> (from what i heard)
[8:49] <Martix> will be those bugs fixed in March batch?
[8:50] <gregoiregentil> Booting with USB is working for a while now (the issue was if there was too many plugged devices at the same time)
[8:50] <gregoiregentil> Charging top battery is still a little bit slow but has been improved over time. March batch will be at the maximum speed that the design allows
[8:51] <Martix> ok
[8:51] <Aard> gregoiregentil: is the fix in latest git, or is it a hardware fix? I get this problem with latest git kernel
[8:52] <Aard> for the top battery charging, hardware or software fix?
[8:52] <JesusMcCloud> gregoiregentil, when will the march batch (HW i assume... i am not an engish native speaker) be shipped (or how long do i need to wait if i want to order one from the march batch?
[8:52] <gregoiregentil> There is a hardware fix that can speed up a little bit how the top battery charges. But it just changes the charging speed, it doesn't change the behavior
[8:53] <gregoiregentil> March batch, probably processed next week and shipped within ten days
[8:53] <JesusMcCloud> so does the top battey fully charge in the latest rev?
[8:53] <Aard> gregoiregentil: are there details about the hardware fix?
[8:53] <Martix> for achieve maximum capacity, should be battery in TB fully charged before first use?
[8:53] <Aard> gregoiregentil: and, with `get problems with latest git' I meant the `shutdown on bootup with usb devices attached'
[8:54] <gregoiregentil> Martix: it doesn't matter
[8:54] * Meizirkki just found a reason why top-battery charging jack is covered while keyboard inserted ... >_<
[8:54] <Meizirkki> Another close call to me breaking my TB ..
[8:55] <gregoiregentil> aard: not sure to understand what you mean
[8:55] <JesusMcCloud> Meizirkki, is changin top battery a case design issue?
[8:55] <neal> gregoiregentil : Does that mean new orders will be shipping in 2 weeks?
[8:55] <Meizirkki> NO
[8:55] <JesusMcCloud> then i am not following
[8:55] <gregoiregentil> Meizirkki: I'm not sure to understand your complaint
[8:56] <gregoiregentil> neal: we are in the last mile of production. A problem can still arise but we are getting closer to ship
[8:56] <Aard> gregoiregentil: you said `Booting with USB is working for a while now'. with recent git I sometimes need to unplug internal usb-devices when booting without charger attached
[8:56] <Meizirkki> JesusMcCloud, i just plugged charger on the top part while having the keyboard part cable inserted, suddenly my 25A PSU fan gone full rpm and the cable gone VERY hot >_>
[8:56] <neal> gregoiregentil : Thanks. Will news be posted on the web site when shipping starts?
[8:56] <gregoiregentil> neal: yes
[8:57] <neal> gregoiregentil : (Specifically, I have a friend visiting from the US in 7 weeks and would like to have him bring me one.)
[8:57] <Meizirkki> JesusMcCloud, gregoiregentil luckily my TB is still alive i was complaining to myself for being so stupid :P
[8:57] <neal> gregoiregentil : I'll keep an eye on the web site, then. Thanks.
[8:57] <JesusMcCloud> all clear now
[8:58] <JesusMcCloud> seems like you guys will hear me nagging in a few weeks again, when i have my TB
[8:58] <JesusMcCloud> thanks so far!
[8:58] <Meizirkki> haha, you're welcome :)
[9:02] <Meizirkki> What's the process called mmcqd btw ?
[9:03] <Meizirkki> It randomly pops up and takes 100% CPU for half a second (which results in short pause in music/video playback)
[9:03] <Meizirkki> It doesn't seem to be part of Ubuntu as no packages have a file called mmcqd.

[10:01] <Mrkva> :D
[10:04] <born_> Okay, now that I can breath again, how can I set the color depth to 32 bit?
[10:07] <Meizirkki> Can you ?
[10:07] * Vito__ (~quassel@gw.loccal.net) has joined #touchbook
[10:07] <Meizirkki> All my tests have resulted in BSOD or just otherwise very f-'d up screen
[10:08] <Meizirkki> I mean BSOD / All blueish
[10:08] <Meizirkki> born_, chaging the 16@60 on your bootargs to 24@60 will get you blueish screen
[10:09] <Meizirkki> and Xserver will stretch the screen 50% over the bottom border

[10:09] <born_> okay, I see. I intend to use QT embedded on it. They have their own windowing server
[10:09] <Meizirkki> ah
[10:09] <born_> so I completely bypass X11
[10:10] <born_> this article is pretty good explaining how to do it http://labs.trolltech.com/blogs/2009/11/20/building-qt-to-make-use-of-the-beagle-boards-sgx-gpu/
[10:10] * mongrelcat (~taylorh@wifi-roaming-163-175.nss.udel.edu) Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[10:10] <born_> But unfortunately a little short on the 32bit color part
[10:10] * mongrelcat (~taylorh@wifi-roaming-163-175.nss.udel.edu) has joined #touchbook
[10:11] <born_> basically he says:
[10:11] <born_> if you want 32 bit color depth, use: console=ttyS0,115200n8=noinitrd ip=dhcp rw root=/dev/mmcblk0p2 omapfb.mode=dvi:1280??720MR-24@60 followed by: /usr/sbin/fbset.real -depth 32 -rgba 8/16,8/8,8/0,8/24
[10:11] <Meizirkki> I say use this on the TB:
[10:11] <born_> but we all know, what happens then :)
[10:11] * JesusMcCloud (~jesus@84-119-46-173.dynamic.xdsl-line.inode.at) has joined #touchbook

[10:12] <born_> so you only would change the 16 to 24?
[10:12] <Meizirkki> afaik the 24 is actually 32
[10:12] <born_> ?
[10:12] <Meizirkki> afaik <==
[10:12] <Meizirkki> well, you set it to 32 it will be mess
[10:13] <born_> ok
[10:13] <born_> and what does the fbset command do?
[10:13] <JesusMcCloud> hi again, i am having trouble bootung the qemu image
[10:14] <born_> /usr/sbin/fbset -depth 32 -rgba 8/16,8/8,8/0,8/24
[10:14] <born_> @Meizirkki
[10:14] <Meizirkki> born_, when you have 24 in the bootargs, fbset seems to show it as 32
[10:14] <born_> ok
[10:14] <Meizirkki> born_, i don't really know what exactly the /usr/sbin/fbset -depth 32 -rgba 8/16,8/8,8/0,8/24 command does..

[10:18] * azaghal_ (~azaghal@ has joined #touchbook
[10:19] <born_> Meizirkki, your bootsargs say omapfb.vram=1:2M,2:4M. My current bootargs say omapfb.vram=0:8M,1:4M. What is this about?
[10:19] <Meizirkki> I asked the same about two lines ago lol :P
[10:19] <born_> is this part of the color depth or something completely different?
[10:19] <Meizirkki> I don't know what it does
[10:20] <born_> I didn't see that :)
[10:20] <Meizirkki> I hoped increasing it would clear the issues with omapfb Xorg driver but it didn't
