T42<edp_17> Just to double check. As I had problem with the CONFIG_IP6_NF_MATCH_RPFILTER, CONFIG_IP_NF_MATCH_RPFILTER when I built the hybris-hal, Elros suggested to comment them out in mer-kernel-check.00:13
T42<edp_17> I have found a mer_verify_kernel_config script in the mer-kernel-check folder. Is it the place where I should comment these two lines out down in the DATA section?00:14
r0kk3rzyeah thats it00:18
T42<edp_17> Yep, it looks like that was the script where I needed to comment them out. However the 'rpm/dhd/helpers/' exited with bad exit status. The issue is none of those CONFIGS but something esle. Log: The log is here:
r0kk3rzyou can just set them to warning instead00:18
T42<edp_17> Okay, thanks.00:19
T42<edp_17> I guess needed to set a ,! after the y at those lines?00:21
T42<edp_17> Thanks.00:22
T42<edp_17> It seems the 'installroot/usr/libexec/droid-hybris/system/etc/init/' doesn't exist. It rings a bell about a fix but I cannot recall where.00:23
T42<elros34> check droid-hal PRs00:26
T42<edp_17> I found it. Fortunately there is a search option in this telegram. 😄00:27
T42<edp_17> Hi @elros34 : thanks.00:27
T42<edp_17> Yeah, that was it. Now the runs. Hopefully it will not crash. Thanks.00:31
T42<edp_17> Does it have any impact on the SailfishOS if I boot into the android rom and I configure/install some apps BEFORE I flash over the SailfishOS zip?00:43
r0kk3rzit can be a good check to make sure the base image is ok to do that00:44
r0kk3rzeven after flashing sfos zip, you can flash android boot.img and then boot to android still00:45
T42<edp_17> Really? And how can I go back to Sailfish again?00:45
r0kk3rzflash the sailfish boot.img00:46
T42<edp_17> If I new this earlier! Thanks for the info.00:46
T42<edp_17> Now I started to think about my S7 (it is still with me)00:47
T42<edp_17> In this case I install a los14.1 rom and can set up as I need with everything. Then I can try my Sailfish build attempts without impacting the underlying android. if the Sailfish image doesn't work, I can reflash the android boot.img, delete the .stowaway folder and re-try a new Sailfish build. Can this work?00:51
r0kk3rzyou dont really need to delete stowaways00:51
r0kk3rzbut yeah basically00:51
T42<edp_17> Even in this case I can "dual boot" between Android and Sailfish on a device. I know need to flash the proper boot.image first but is it still doable?00:52
r0kk3rzyeah its kinda a hacky dual boot00:52
r0kk3rzwe even abused this to create an android runtime of sorts by booting android inside of sailfish00:53
T42<edp_17> On the S2, the only downside is when I install the cm12.1 android, it replaces the recovery with its own which doesn't support to flash and img.00:53
T42<edp_17> But on Nexus 5 and S7 it should work. I will try because in this case I may not need the XA2 and can go forward with the S7 port. 😄00:54
T42<edp_17> Wait,wait,wait. You said that booting android inside of sailfish? How? Is it the project known SFDroid?00:55
r0kk3rzthe s7 is probably a nicer device than the xa200:56
r0kk3rzbut then you dont have to support yourself with updates00:56
r0kk3rzor fix all the broken things00:56
r0kk3rzyeah thats the old sfdroid thing00:57
r0kk3rzit was a fairly neat hack00:57
T42<edp_17> I like fixing broken things. 😉 That's why I started working on the S2 port when I decided to replace the S7 with XA2. I need something that I can hack or flash or configure or ... 😁00:58
T42<edp_17> That's why I tried all the other available alternative OS like PMOS, FirefoxOS, UT, Sailfish. I wanted to try more but many of them are too old and couldn't find the install images even with the wayback machine.01:00
r0kk3rzit is a good way to learn how everything works01:01
Kabouik@edp_17, are you talking about Pro1? Sorry I didn't catch up the discussion01:01
T42<edp_17> My S2 build is doing well so far. Now it is installing the packages (550/725). I hope it will complete and can flash on the device soon.01:01
KabouikIf so, I have draft instructions for all those twrp things, backup, restore, sfos flash, Android restoration01:02
T42<edp_17> @Kabouik: No, I was talking about sony xperia XA201:03
KabouikShould be fairly similar though01:03
KabouikIt's not properly formatted yet, numbering is broken, and paths are for my computer, so just a draft at this stage, but it can still give you an overview for twrp image manipulation:
T42<edp_17> @r0kk3rz: Yeah, when I tried all those OS I found Sailfish the best. But I couldn't find a build for the Nexus 5 that had all what I needed. So I created one. It was one of my best decision because now I have the latest SFOS combined with cm12.1 base (I think you know why 😉)01:06
T42<edp_17> @Kabouik: Nice guide! 👍01:08
r0kk3rzsurely you should still be able to fastboot flash without twrp01:08
T42<edp_17> You won't believe! The S2 build completed! I am not sure whether this works but I have got something to flash on the device! I am happy now. Thanks for the help.01:09
T42<edp_17> By the way, do you know why the video recording (camera) doesn't work in Sailfish with cm12.1 base?01:11
T42<edp_17> And I got the fist problem. With the original CM12.1 recovery, I cannot install the sailfish zip file on the device.01:17
T42<edp_17> I have managed to flash it, but doesn't boot and cannot access with telnet either. I have tried to bring up the usb network with this
T42<edp_17> The dmesg | tail doesn't show the usbnetwork name.01:45
T42<edp_17> And now I cannot boot back to recovery mode either. 😄 Probably need to re-flash the recovery with odin and start over. Cool.01:45
T42<edp_17> It is not clear. I thought if the installable zip file is created that means the image at least will boot. Why doesn't this work this way?01:49
r0kk3rzno such guarantees sorry01:49
T42<edp_17> I am just dreaming, I guess. 😁01:50
r0kk3rzyou can pack all kinds of crazy things into an image that would never work01:50
T42<elros34> If it doesn't reboot after 60s then you should check whether /data/.stowaways/sailfishos/init.log exists.01:51
T42<edp_17> Yeah, that's what I wanted but as I said cannot go into the device at all.01:52
T42<edp_17> I tried the way you suggested (bringing up the usb network, assigning an ip, changing ...) but that doesn't work either.01:53
T42<elros34> so flash recovery01:53
T42<edp_17> Yep, that's my only option left. Now I need to google how to flash it under linux. (I don't want to go back to the other room to the windows again.)01:54
T42<edp_17> I have re-flashed the recovery and from that did a factory reset then installed the cm12.1 android and the sailfishos. The result is the same, stuck on the samsung logo and cannot be accessed via telnet and cannot bring up the usb network either. To be continued...02:33

T42<picolopoco> ./rpm/dhd/helpers/ line 201: createrepo: command not found08:54
T42<elros34> Did you update dhd submodule?08:56
T42<elros34> in your local copy not only in github08:56
T42<RealDanct12> `git submodule update --init --recursive`08:59
T42<RealDanct12> in the rpm folder08:59
T42<RealDanct12> then git checkout github/master08:59
T42<NotKit> did createrepo get removed from SDK? curious why it would be missing09:13
T42<elros34> no, he just use old dhd submodule09:13
T42<elros34> it's createrepo_c now09:15
T42<elros34> @picolopoco if you still didn't remove rpm dir and clone it again like advised then execute this: cd $ANDROID_ROOT;rm -rf rpm/;git clone --recurse-submodules rpm09:31
asrielJust got SailfishOS to boot on Redmi 4X with Android 7 base.10:10
asrielWorks are based on bitrvmpd's old branches10:10
asrielAnyway, I also realized that we have vietnamese support in SailfishOS.10:11
T42<RealDanct12> no one cares much about sfos in some countries10:17
T42<RealDanct12> since android has dominated the world10:17
T42<adampigg> asriel: how much different is that to note 4/4x?10:19
asrielThat's true, if you ask people about Sailfish here you'll probably get a headshake10:19
T42<RealDanct12> @adampigg [asriel: how much different is that to note 4/4 …], probably different as in electronics10:21
T42<RealDanct12> software is compatible though10:21
T42<RealDanct12> by electronics, i mean you can put a msm8937 to a msm8940 phone and expect a upgrade10:22
asriel<T42 "<RealDanct12> by electronics, i "> LOL we do have a discussion about this on danctnix's channel10:24
asrielEven if it works, just buy a new phone instead10:24
asrielReplacing the chip requires some very expensive tool that a hobbyist can't afford10:25
* asriel uploaded an image: image.png (120KB) < >10:25
asriel<T42 "<RealDanct12> by electronics, i "> Also, that's Redmi 3S (land)10:29
asrielMSM8937 is in 3S10:29
asrielHowever I think the board layout should be the same for 3S and 4X10:30
asrielSince designing a new board can be time consuming10:30
asrielThe Note 4 however, is not compatible10:30
T42<edp_17> About mentioning hw mods. Here is a crazy hw mod to the hammerhead:
T42<edp_17> I am not sure the tools he used though.10:43
T42<elros34> @adampigg thx for mesa update. I tried it on sun5i, lima still crash kernel often but at least works and renders top menu correctly now12:33
T42<adampigg> @elros34 np, glad it was eventually figured out12:33
T42<adampigg> @eugenio_g7 if you update latte from devel it will break, egl/dri problems.  im open to suggestions, its current mesa master. (soon 20.0) ... you can get back to 19.1 with zypper dup --from (native-common)13:13
T42<adampigg> mesa-loader; failed to open kms_swrast13:13
T42<adampigg> failed to load driver:kms_swrast13:13
T42<adampigg> libegl warning: did ot find extension dri_dri2 version 213:14
T42<adampigg> it doesnt appear to try to load the intel driver13:14
T42<eugenio_g7> Yup I compiled 19.4(iirc) and had the same issue :/13:30
T42<adampigg> ah, ok13:31
T42<adampigg> @eugenio_g7 maybe EGL_LOG_LEVEL=debug will help......13:47
T42<eugenio_g7> Yea should investigate further :D14:02
T42<faenil> mal: who can give me an update about anbox on sfos?14:15

T42<edp_17> @r0kk3rz: Do you know why the sfdroid was abandoned? I liked that idea but many things do not really worked. If somebody would kept going with the development since it stopped 4-5 years ago, by now we could have a brilliant AD replacement. Even if this could work with one base that would be amazing!14:39
T42<faenil> mal: cheers14:51
Danct12_mainly because people lose interest over it15:12
T42<edp_17> @RealDanct12 : It interesting you said people lost interest because I see many question about how to run android apps on sailfish (because the lack of native apps). Plus if there was a free more or less stable solution, definitely there would be more user to hop on to sail. But might be wrong.15:25
Danct12_I mean, the author, or it's just they don't have time to work on it15:27
T42<edp_17> I see.15:28
T42<edp_17> Many of us would be gratefull if somebody re-started the project.15:29
T42<edp_17> I would do but this is completely out of my depth.15:29
T42<edp_17> The other thing is the native sip and video calls. I have seen jolla asked the community to put the pieces together. This would also add a lot to the value of sailfish but again I am just barking the moon so far from being able to do that. 😒15:34

T42<picolopoco> hello18:47
asrielHi, and happy new year.19:03
asriel- temmie19:03
Kabouik5 wpm was obviously an exagerrated nlow number Mister_Magister, I didn't expect it to be taken at face value19:27
KabouikI know swkb can be faster, I literally said it, but I really am bad with them and would be very slow if I wanted to be 100R% accurate19:27
Mister_MagisterKabouik: i'm tired of every hw keyboard fanboy shitting on software keyboard and showing how mighty hw keyboard is while its totally false and sw keyboard aint bad either, hw one just gives u screen in landscape20:04
KabouikWell I understand that you're tired, but I didn't do what you despise, I just talked about my own awkward fingers when using SW and I said that others would do better. And I actually mentioned the screen real estate advantage.22:33
KabouikI'm sorry it made you angry but I didn't feel like I did what annoys you22:35
T42<adampigg> 🙈22:36
KabouikSorry, I shouldn't have commented here actually, my bad @adampigg!22:40
KabouikBy the way, any of you getting issues with mobile network on your Pro1s @adampigg, Mister_Magister?22:41
T42<adampigg> mine doesnt go on network as its  adev unit22:41
T42<adampigg> so not getting much use22:41
KabouikIsn't TheKit's a dev unit too22:42
KabouikI think he uses it with mobile network22:42
TheKitsame batch, yes22:42
KabouikThe issues I'm encountering is mobile network (gsm + data, but mostly gsm) are totally unstable22:43
T42<adampigg> depends on network operator if they will allow a blank imei to connect22:44
T42<adampigg> uk is a bit stricter i guess22:44
KabouikAnd sometimes the sim and data icons reflect that unstability (they disappear for a while), sometimes they don't at all (they are there, or even change from 3g to 4g for instance, and yet I can't get any data and I miss calls and texts and can't call or text before it's back, sometimes hours later)22:44
KabouikOh, I see22:45
TheKitthere is actually a way to set IMEI, but it's rather hacky22:47
TheKitsince public info is limited on that, the best I could find was a tool to edit nvram XML backup written in Excel VBA(!), yet it did the job22:52
KabouikI suppose that'd be very interesting for @adampigg22:53
T42<edp_17> Hi guys, I would need a little support with my S2 (i9100) port.23:33
T42<edp_17> The device stuck on Samsung logo and cannot be connected with SSH, telnet or any other way. The usb network cannot manually be bring up and the device isn't able to boot into recover either.23:34
T42<edp_17> Surely something is wrong with the build but I don't know where to start finding the root cause.23:35
T42<NotKit> could you link to LineageOS boot.img?23:38
T42<NotKit> Samsungs of that era tended to use kernel image instead of abootimg format, but I do not now about that particular device23:39
T42<edp_17> I don't know how to link to LOS boot.img.23:41
T42<edp_17> I am trying to find what went wrong (if any) during the If anybody is interested, the log is available here:
