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.

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

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

As you need to implement your solution into Android system, you end up learning a lot about the different Android layers (kernel, OS and applications) and how to integrate them. I decided to add the following list with some tips, as these small things took me some precious time to get it solved. The list will be often edited:

#01 - Make sure that you're flashing the device with the proper kernel image

This is what happened to me: I had previously built the kernel (something like two months before). Then, I had to build the OS image from scratch, that is, cleaning up the previous build (with make clobber). When I used the command make bootimage, including setting the variables properly, the output always had the wrong kernel image (not the one that I had previously built, but the existing one in the directory prebuilts). The build process won't take too old kernel images. Therefore, make sure that the compressed kernel image is always new. Even if you don't make any change on the kernel source, do make again to generate a new file.
