Dear friends and Maemoans, six months and even a bit more has passed and again it is time to elect a new Community Council for us.

The last election finished on Saturday 3rd of January 2015 so we are running little late with the next one.

The schedule of the voting is as follows:

  • Nomination period starts now on Sunday 19th of July 2015 and continues until 1st of August 2015.
  • Contemplation period starts on Sunday 2nd of August 2015 and continues until Saturday 8th of August 2015.
  • Election period starts on Sunday 9th of August 2015 and continues until 15th of August 2015.

To get our community to continue strong, we need fresh people with fresh viewpoints to carry on the torch, so please think about volunteering for Maemo Council.

At the same time during the Council election we will also be running a referendum on Council rules. The referendum will be announced shortly.

On behalf of the outgoing community council,

Jussi Ohenoja

New syscalls for armv8-64 kernel

I decided to use a different target platform for my project. Initially, I was using Android Kitkat + Galaxy Nexus (ARMv7 + TI OMAP 4460). To obtain best performance with some crypto operations, I am now using Android Lollipop + Nexus 9 (ARMv8 64bits). I did some tests with basic OpenSSL examples (for example, AES-128 and SHA1) and the numbers are impressive.

In my current project, the system has to notify the user about a certain action that actually takes place inside the kernel (in this case, transfer of security keys). I don't want to get into too much details about the tasks, but let's consider that the kernel and the Dalvik are the only trustworthy components and the security keys are stored inside the kernel. I've also seen some pieces of code that helps to implement this, but I could not find a end-to-end solution.

Gido Griese (Win7Mac),

Partial: Oksana Tkachenko (Oksana/Wikiwide),
Rüdiger Schiller (chem|st),

Absent: Alexander Kozhevnikov (MentalistTraceur),

Summary of topics (ordered by discussion):

  • Referendum
  • Council elections

Topic (Referendum):

  • Win7Mac posted to Council, via email, 2-option (Yes or No) referendum, about accepting that Council becomes part of MCeV, and corresponding modifications to Council election rules.
  • Defining in bylaws that Council's task is to advise board (besides holding elections), for all "Yes" options of referendum.
  • Wikiwide offers to put "Council election rules can be changed by GA resolution, not only PM referendum" into separate part of referendum, because MCeV can function if Council election rules are changeable by referendum only.
    Peterleinchen notes that this will be the most work consuming option, and it will not change the council position (no power over board).
    3-option referendum should be doable.
  • Next council meeting should decide on referendum and announce it, as well as council elections, to hold them together.
  • A draft of referendum from chemist

Action Items:
  • -- old items:
    • The selected Code of Conduct (KDE) still needs to be published on (T)MO.

Meeting held 2015-05-19 on FreeNode, channel #maemo-meeting (logs)

Attending:
William McBee (gerbick), Jussi Ohenoja (juiceme),

Gido Griese (Win7Mac),

Partial: Oksana Tkachenko (Oksana/Wikiwide),

Absent: Peter Leinchen (peterleinchen), Alexander Kozhevnikov (MentalistTraceur),

Summary of topics (ordered by discussion):

  • HiFo and MCeV: transfer
  • Referendum

Topic (HiFo and MCeV: transfer):

  • For those under the impression that Nokia could deny us moving everything to MCeV: chemist is not in the position to share details of the agreement but what he can share, is that in case of HiFo moving *all* assets to a new/other entity Nokia has to be notified, not asked for permission, and the *new entity has to kiss the ring.

Topic (Referendum):

  • The referendum options must be debated for a minimum of 4 weeks prior to the referendum; referendum voting will be open for the same length of time as the council elections [1 week].
  • Define the council responsibility, besides holding all elections. The issue is, since Council is elected by all Passive Members and not just GA, Council has to be limited in power, since GA is the native "superior force" in any e.V.
  • Referendum would include changes to council election rules: altered all "1 month" to "4 weeks", got rid of that obscure "Nokia Community Manager"...

Action Items:
  • -- old items:
    • The selected Code of Conduct (KDE) still needs to be published on (T)MO.
    • Looking into automatic calculation of election results ...
    • Contacting freemangordon and merlin1991 about auto-builder: CSSU-thumb target, GCC versions?

Summary of topics (ordered by discussion):

  • HiFo and MCeV: transfer
  • Referendum
  • Facebook API changes

Topic (HiFo and MCeV: transfer):

  • woody has now made the transfer from HiFo account to MCeV account; it should be visible there in couple of days. Next steps are dissolving the Hildon Foundation and making final transfer of all intangibles to MCeV. That's in the works, too.
  • The agreement between HiFo and Nokia states that in situation like the current one, Nokia is to be notified by proceedings, That's being taken care of, too. In theory, they could decline the transfer. But it is not seen as likely.

Topic (Referendum):

  • peterleinchen is going to check the bylaws to make up his mind about need of referendum. .

Topic (Facebook API changes):

  • Daphne Won does not reply to the latest Facebook messages; probably need to ask somebody from usoft/nokia for help.

Summary of topics (ordered by discussion):

  • Facebook API changes
  • Referendum, repositories being down and the letter to HiFo

Topic (Facebook API changes):

  • Recently, FB migrated all API v1.0 applications (like the one in N900, dunno about N9/50) to v2.0. As a result, FB sharing plugin stopped working, again. Could someone contact Daphne Won and request for the community to take ownership of N900 facebook application, so we can go through FB review process and make photo/video sharing plugin working anew?
  • The FB application was registered on FB back in 2009 (afaik) by Nokia. Every FB application has administrators, that lady being one of them. She has the rights to add other people as administrators. We need such an administrator account in order to request FB to review the application according to those new rules.

Topic (Referendum, repositories being down and the letter to HiFo):

  • Lost with that RFC thread now; lots of heated discussion; no checks for the type of ruling which can be created by GA or Council and executed by board.
  • Current mirrors of repositories are working, and staff is backed up, but it would be better to have an official repository, with permission of Nokia or Microsoft.
  • Mail template to Jaffa needed

Action Items:
  • -- old items:
    • The selected Code of Conduct (KDE) still needs to be published on (T)MO.

Let's now show how to install a module into the just compiled Android kernel (see this post for more information)

For compiling the module, it's important that you use the same kernel source that is installed in your device. Otherwise, you cannot install the module.

a. Go to the code that contains an example of kernel module for Android (for instance, [your_code]/module/intercept);
b. Update the makefile to point to your kernel source code;
c. You need to set some env variables, including the cross-compiler. In this case, you can use the ones provided by the Android source, in the folder prebuilts:

   @desktop:$ export CROSS_COMPILE=[android_sdk]/prebuilts/gcc/linux-x86/arm/arm-eabi-4.7/bin/arm-eabi-
   @desktop:$ export ARCH=arm
   @desktop:$ export PATH=$PATH:/prebuilts/gcc/linux-x86/arm/arm-eabi-4.7/bin/
   @desktop:$ make
   (a kernel module file will be generated ([your_module].ko) and this is the one that we need to install in our rooted device)

d. Copy the .ko file to the device using the following command:

   @desktop:$ adb push [your_module].ko /data/local/tmp

e. Install the kernel module using the following commands:

   @desktop:$ adb shell
   @android:$ su
   @android:$ cd /data/local/tmp
   @android:$ insmod [your_module].ko

f. You might get some errors, such as "function not implemented". To check more details about what's wrong, you can check the log file by typing the following command.

   @android:$ dmesg
