We spent last year designing and creating MED so it was nice to find this video created by Microsoft explaining what it is and how it works

UEFI is the successor to BIOS for communicating with the Firmware on your Mainboard.
While the first BIOS was released with the IBM-PC in 1981, the first UEFI version (EFI 2.0) was released 25 years later in 2006 building upon the lessons learned in that timespan. So UEFI is without any doubt the more modern solution.

Dear friends and Maemoans, as it happens we did not get enough confirmed candidates in the set nomination period, so according to the Council Election Rules we need to extend the nomination period by 4 weeks.

This will push all dates one month to future. The new schedule of the voting is as follows:

  • Nomination period continues until Saturday 29.08.2015
  • Contemplation period starts on Sunday 30.08.2015 and continues until Saturday 05.09.2015.
  • Election period starts on Sunday 06.09.2015 and continues until 12.09.2015.

Currently we have 5 confirmed candidates. (endsormeans, juiceme, reinob, Win7Mac, peterleinchen)

On behalf of the outgoing community council,

Jussi Ohenoja

Gebruik maken van verbanden tussen metadata

Ik beweerde onlangs ergens dat een systeem dat verbanden (waar, wanneer, met wie, waarom) in plaats van louter metadata (titel, datum, auteur, enz.) over content verzamelt een oplossing zou kunnen bieden voor het probleem dat gebruikers van digitale media meer en meer zullen hebben; namelijk dat ze teveel materiaal gaan verzameld hebben om er ooit nog eens iets snel genoeg in terug te vinden.

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.
