jabawokbeen 30mins sofar, stuck on the bq "powered by ubuntu" white boot screen02:10
jabawoki'll keep waiting a while02:10
Stanley00jabawok: I think it's just boot logo, the update process will show a rolling circle02:11
jabawokah.. thats not good02:11
jabawokwhat do u think.. power off/on again?02:11
Stanley00jabawok: yes02:12
Stanley00jabawok: in the worst case, you only need to flash the rom again :302:13
jabawokyeah looks like i might have to02:13
jabawoksame screen02:13
* jabawok looks up how to do that02:13
jabawokoh wait02:14

ajeckduflu: thanks,  the most voted one seems interesting.  I wonder if i could figure out a way to edit fstab so that the settings are preserved .05:51
dufluajeck: The one I linked to is my technique. It's very fast. Although it baffles people who don't understand how sparse filesystems work :(06:21

ajeckduflu: how so?  the fact that you are adding zeros at the end but not taking space?06:23
=== zsombi_ is now known as zsombi
dufluajeck: Because the same df command without seek= would just wipe the disk instead06:25
dufluSo people are suspicious and worried06:25
ajeckduflu: ahh, well it did seem simpler06:26
dufluHence the warning... /this will either do what you want or wipe your disk (if typed wrong)/06:31
dufluajeck: BTW any OTA updates may replace that root image and reset it to 2GB06:37
dufluSo either hack your device, or allow updates, but not both06:37

davmor2zzarr: How are you going to link to it?11:36
victor_bqHi!11:49
victor_bqdoes anyone knows if there is a way to directly save contacts in SIM through the UI or terminal?11:51
nhainesNo clue!  :)11:52
nhainesAlthough actually I know there's *some* way... so better to say I have no clue how.11:52
ogra_you can definitely import them from the SIM ... but no idea if you can also export, write or store them there11:54
davmor2victor_bq: not currently, you can pull from but not save to12:39
victor_bqOk thanks, seems that we all have the same info :P12:44
victor_bqI just wanted to mention that because some customers ask from time to time about it12:45
ogra_victor_bq, you can wait for bfiller to show up ... his team works on that and he knows if/where it is on the roadmap12:49
=== alan_g is now known as alan_g|lunch
victor_bqgood to read that =)12:52
davmor2ogra_, victor_bq: bfiller I think is on holiday this week iirc tiagosh or boiko might be a better bet for now12:55
zzarrdavmor2, a Displaylink GPU is speaking USB13:00
davmor2zzarr: I doubt very much that it would work, Saviq, mzanetti or kgunn maybe be able to confirm though13:40
mzanettino clue13:40
Saviqzzarr, it would Just Work™, assuming there's drivers, which there are none last I checked13:47
Saviqzzarr, DisplayLink is really just a GPU connected over USB13:47
Saviqthere's a long-running campaign to convince DisplayLink to supply Linux drivers, but I don't think anything's happening on that front yet13:48
Saviqwith USB-C coming, that might just be wasted work at that point anyway13:48
Saviqso I wouldn't hold my breath13:48
kgunnzzarr: fwiw, i'm not familiar13:50
zzarrSaviq, I know that it is, but on there page it says that the driver is open source13:54
Saviqzzarr, oh, that's a new development13:56
Saviqzzarr, so, in theory it should be possible, assuming the OTG support has enough throughput, in practice, though, Mir is using a newer driver model than X (EGL), which might still prove problematic14:00
Saviqso we'd need newer drivers for DisplayLink (not impossible, especially if they're open source)14:00
Saviqcould be an interesting GSoC project14:00

zzarrI have to go now, but I leave my XChat open14:53
dobeyzzarr: the displaylink drivers are proprietary. there is a basic open source implementation of an older version of displaylink in the upstream linux kernel.14:57
mterrypitti, the language-pack-touch packages haven't been regenerated in the stable-phone-overlay PPA since we commited that 'pam' fix.  Can we remake them to test that change?14:58

jgdxcharles, hey, that settings:///system/location system settings branch is ready for your silo. Which silo was it?15:20
charlesjgdx, ubuntu/landing-012 in https://requests.ci-train.ubuntu.com/#/ticket/94915:21
charlesjgdx, want me to add https://code.launchpad.net/~jonas-drange/ubuntu-system-settings/lp1533835/+merge/285603 and rebuild?15:23
jgdxcharles, yes, please. That would be great.15:25
jgdxkenvandine, could you take a look at that branch as well? ^ maybe seb128 too15:25
seb128jgdx, not likely today but maybe tomorrow if nobody beats me to it15:28
jgdxseb128, ack. Thanks15:28
kenvandinejgdx, sure15:28
zzarrdobey, thanks for clarifying that16:13
pittimterry: I started the cronjob, but not sure if that makes any sense -- we need a new RTM export16:20
pittimterry: but if this one fails, the cron'ed one will run in about 18 hours16:20
joe_whi, mail app dekko icon has stopped working, can remove/move, cant load though....restart works but then stops again...any help would be appreciated16:48

joe_wDanChapman, thanks16:55
pittimterry: as I feared -- I just got the two metric tons of REJECT emails17:02
mterrypitti, so we need a new RTM export as you said above?  Does that require manual intervention or will that just happen on schedule?17:03
pittimterry: it'll all happen automagically tomorrow17:03
pittimterry: https://translations.launchpad.net/ubuntu-rtm/15.04/+language-packs FYI17:04
mterrypitti, good enough  :)  Thanks for trying early anyway17:04

dasjoeI experience an issue with OTA-9, when connecting a BT keyboard to my Nexus 4 I can close the "Scopes" application (if it doesn't crash by itself, that is) and then can't find a way to restart it18:33
jamie1hey i am wanting to work on porting ubuntu touch to the z3c, right now i am on 15.10, should i be on 14.04 to be working on it? some of the stuff for building is only for utopic19:02
dasjoeAs it turns out "Scopes" disappears about half the time. When it doesn't disappear by itself I can close the window, which then tries to reopen itself for a few times before giving up19:29
dasjoeAny way to get it back? :)19:29

Guest37661like boot from micro sd card20:09
jamie1what device are you trying to put ubuntu touch on?20:10

Guest37661Thanks, but I looked up the list before. Can I boot from sd card in android20:12
dobeyGuest37661: you can't boot anything, if your device wasn't ported20:14

ahoneybunis it a bug if the icon in the Dash is not updated with the new one?20:32

=== salem_ is now known as _salem
dasjoedobey: well, that would require an adb connection via USB. I'm on the go, with just the phone and a bluetooth keyboard20:36
dobeydasjoe: no, you can use the terminal app20:37
dobeyi suppose you would need it to be running at the time, though20:37
dobeyor at least, in the launcher20:37
dobeyahoneybun: possibly, but highly unlikely20:38
ahoneybunI unpinned it and repinned it, and it was updated dobey20:38
ahoneybunthanks20:38
dobeyahoneybun: you mean the launcher didn't auto-update then?20:39
dasjoedobey: oh right, I'll try that20:39
ahoneybunno the icon was the old white one20:42
ahoneybunnot the new blue one20:42
dasjoedobey: it opens and immediately gets killed (by TRAP signal, according to .xsession-errors)20:43
dobeyahoneybun: you mean in the launcher, though, not the dash? the dash doesn't have things pinned in it (unless you went about tweaking some gsettings by hand)20:43
ahoneybunlauncher I mean, sorry20:43
dobeydasjoe: sounds like it could be a bug then; do you have anything in /var/crash ?20:43
dasjoedobey: nope, it's empty20:44
dobeyhmm20:47
dobeydasjoe: i'd suggest filing a bug to get started then20:47
