superflymagespawn: yo09:50
magespawnhowdy all09:50
magespawnsuperfly you have a n900?09:50
superflymagespawn: yes09:50
magespawnwhat os you running?09:50
superflystill maemo 509:54
magespawni see you can dual boot it with android 09:59
=== jpm is now known as kerbero[pc]
kerbero[pc]android can't phone09:59
kerbero[pc]and i tried meego too09:59
kerbero[pc]that can only phone10:00
kerbero[pc]so i'm on maego too10:00
magespawnthis is what i found10:00
kerbero[pc]at least everything is mostly working in maemo10:01
kerbero[pc]let me check10:01
kerbero[pc]that tutorial seems correct for dualbooting10:02
kerbero[pc]roughly how i did it too10:02
magespawnis it worth the work?10:02
kerbero[pc]as i said, android is awesome10:02
kerbero[pc]it can do everything except for making calls10:02
kerbero[pc]and taking photos10:02
magespawni have been wanting to try it10:03
magespawnno apps for those?10:03
kerbero[pc]there are a lot of apps pre installed10:03
magespawnis skype or similar available?10:04
kerbero[pc]don't think so 10:04
kerbero[pc]maybe one can install it later10:04
magespawni see10:05
kerbero[pc]see that10:06
kerbero[pc]there is way too much hardware that still does not work10:06
magespawnthats a pity10:07
kerbero[pc]nice to play with10:07
kerbero[pc]but not usable for a phone10:07
magespawnmaybe i will give it ago then10:07
magespawndoes the meego allow dual boot?10:09
kerbero[pc]you can dualboot maemo+meego10:10
kerbero[pc]or maemo+android10:10
kerbero[pc]but triplebooting is almost impossible10:10
kerbero[pc]because the two setups use different boot loaders10:10
magespawngoing to try the maemo+android10:11
magespawni want to have a look at android, might be getting a native device later this year.10:13
magespawnthanks for help, never quite sure if info on the net is accurate, nice to be confirmed10:20
magespawnlater all have work to do11:10

nlsthznHey Uncle Kilosm ...15:43
BarcoAnyone know what happened to the linuxlab.org project?17:44
Kilosevening all of ya17:49
BarcoHi Kilos, have you ever of the linuxlab.org project? 17:50
Kilosnope Barco 17:50
Kiloswhats it about17:51
BarcoI'm looking to help a rural school set up a lab. They source old PC's for terminals and provide for the use.  17:51
BarcoI'm looking for 486-P2 for the job 17:52
Barcomost companies send these to e-waste. 17:53
Kilosi have a 486 and bits and pieces of a few others17:54
Kilosand a p3 i normally use for spare here17:54
Kilosbut you will need someone that knows hardware and bios to get them going17:55
Barconot much of a problem as I have it background. Just a newb in the Linux realm 17:56
BarcoBeen setting up my lab and was thinking about how usefull edubuntu would be for rural schools I've visited as a youth worker 17:57
Kiloswwhere are you?17:58
BarcoI'm in Bloemfontein. you?17:58
Kilosactually try pc shops that do upgrades for people, they normally got a few old pcs when the upgrade companies17:59
BarcoHmm, quite a way off. I'm gonna do that.  18:00
Kilosmust be lots in bloem18:00
Barcoquite a few but the larger companies send everything to ewaste. 18:01
Kilosor do most peeps there still use the abacus18:01
BarcoMost are a bit behind Gauteng lol 18:01
Kilosjust speak to a few i am sure you will find some18:02
BarcoFinancially the Free State is not affluent but we got the meat ;)18:02
Kilosnuvolari, ping18:02
BarcoI'm gonna give it a shot. 18:03
Kilosyeah its worth a try18:03
Kilosi actually got started here from a guy that stayed close by that did upgrading for people18:04
BarcoMight end up buying terminals by the kg lol 18:04
Kiloshe gave me a lot of bits and pieces to sort through before he dumped them18:04
Kilosits just hard work sorting what is still good and what not18:05
Barcowondering if recyclers will take  a buyback offer befor they melt them ;) 18:05
Barcoagreed. Might be able to teach some learners to help 18:06
Kilosgo for it18:06
BarcoI'll search for a few guys to help locally. 18:07
Kilosmaybe look in your local papers for guys offering pc repairs18:09
Kilosthey mostly know each other18:09
Kilosand the smaller businesses normally have private guys do pc work for them18:11
Kilosthen you can just promote ubuntu at the same time18:11
Barcosounds good, I'll do that. 18:17

nlsthznsuperfly: just read your blog... chokoq is awesome19:49
superflynlsthzn: cool21:35
superflyit is pretty cool, just got some annoying bugs at times21:35
nlsthznsuperfly: can't add a comment on it cause I don't have an account though...21:35
superflynlsthzn: bug you can register ;-)21:35
nlsthznbut chokoq 1.1 has been out for a while... I installed it on openSUSE months ago when I got login issues... 21:36
* nlsthzn has so many accounts all over the place he can't keep track anymore21:36
superflynlsthzn: yeah, it's been out a while, but there are no updates in Ubuntu/Kubuntu for it22:34
nlsthznsuperfly: well, the way you explained it on your blog it looks pretty easy to make a package for Ubuntu :)22:35
superflyIt's not a proper package, but it's a convenient way to keep your system intact while compiling and installing a new version of whatever software it is that you require22:36
