[15:39] <DaQatz> I'm cooking a turkey.
[15:40] <ukscone> it's not christmas or thanksgiving so why?
[15:40] <DaQatz> Because turkey was cheap, and I want turkey?
[15:41] <ahven> because he's hungry? :)
[15:41] <ahven> I wouldn't mind a turkey, though chicken tastes a bit better :)
[15:41] <DaQatz> I'm not fully trimming it. Just turkey potatoes and squash.
[15:43] <ukscone> no stuffing?
[15:43] <ukscone> got to have stuffing
[15:46] <Thorn_> fooking Orange suck
[15:47] <Thorn_> they took my money then said "we were unable to process your order"
[15:47] <Thorn_> so now i have to wait "up to" 10 days for them to refund me the money...
[15:47] <Thorn_> ffffffffff....
[15:47] <ukscone> do that often enough and they don't need to give anyone service. they could survive ont he 10 days free interest
[15:53] <DaQatz> Sadly no stuffing, I really like stuffing too.

[21:37] <ukscone> afternoon all
[21:37] <ShiftPlusOne> ahoy
[21:39] <ukscone> so what's new
[21:41] <ShiftPlusOne> still working on the game.... after hours of hard work, lots of reading, trial and error.... I've got a custom cursor on the screen.
[21:41] <ShiftPlusOne> ....accomplishment.
[21:42] <ShiftPlusOne> oh... and there's a tooltip class as well.
[21:43] <ShiftPlusOne> learning about polymorphism and the vector class now since I'll need them to create the rest of the GUI =D
[21:44] * deadprogram (~ron@cpe-76-172-24-111.socal.res.rr.com) Quit (Read error: Operation timed out)
[21:44] <ShiftPlusOne> (in my defence most of that time was spent on turning some textures into an isometric tileset and a photo of an arrowhead into a cursor... and GIMP sucks)

[22:21] <ahven> ShiftPlusOne: with what are you developing it?
[22:21] <ShiftPlusOne> C++, SDL
[22:22] <ukscone> ok everyone be very very careful and don't sneeze or jiggle the table. i have a working buildroot installation and i don't want to disturb it
[22:23] <ukscone> b****** too late, wife just coughed. back to the drawing board
[22:29] <ahven> http://gizmodo.com/5843725/the-worlds-strongest-electric-train-with-10500hp-of-rawr
[22:29] <ahven> woah, 5.8 seconds - a train!
[22:33] <deadprogram> has anyone gotten raspi working with a screen res other than 1080p? no monitor so far will take anything else
[22:34] <deadprogram> I guess first question should have been does anyone else here have an alpha board?
[22:37] <leighbb> I bet you're just saying that to make us all envious
[22:37] <leighbb> (it worked)
[22:47] * leighbb (~leigh@2002:561b:423c:ac10:230:bdff:fe6a:eb31) Quit (Quit: Leaving.)
[22:49] <deadprogram> no I was hoping for assist, and sharing, actually
[22:50] <deadprogram> I know a few have them, and thought some might hang out here
[22:50] <mdavey> deadprogram: I haven't heard of anyone else succeeding. ISTR someone else mentioning they tried and failed within the last few days
[22:51] <deadprogram> mdavey: that figures!
[22:51] <mdavey> Maybe we should compile a (hit)list of those with alphaboards on the wiki, or get people to join #raspberrypi-alpha
[22:52] <deadprogram> or bring it here, and let other chime in if they have ideas on how to make things work, boards or not
[22:52] <mdavey> vgrade has one but is out of the country ATM. jamesh on the forum has one but doesn't come on here. Or you could just email Liz for assistance.
[22:52] * IT_Sean (~IT_Sean@applefritter/IRCStaff/UltimateMacUser1) has joined #raspberrypi
[22:53] <deadprogram> I was hoping that a conversation here might lead to google indexing it, and others finding it when they need it
[22:53] <mdavey> I think there are a couple of others on IRC
[22:56] * IT_Sean (~IT_Sean@applefritter/IRCStaff/UltimateMacUser1) Quit (Quit: off)
[22:59] <mdavey> deadprogram: Just had a quick google for roku2 xorg.conf but didn't find any hits - looks like you are leading the revolution :S
[22:59] <deadprogram> mdavey: woo-hoo!
[23:24] <friggle> deadprogram: I haven't investigated anything other than 1920x1080
[23:26] <deadprogram> friggle: I've tried many settings, all they did was result in the monitor tiling the display, and looking horrible
[23:27] <friggle> deadprogram: well can you get a different resolution for just the framebuffer device?
[23:27] <friggle> I seem to remember 1920x1080 being in some boot settings somewhere
[23:28] <friggle> I don't have my device with me so can't check
[23:29] <deadprogram> I'm aware of some boot settings in cmdline.txt but they do not have the desired effect
[23:30] <friggle> deadprogram: what's your natie resolution?
[23:30] <friggle> *native
[23:31] <iMatttt> Mine is 1366x768 :>
[23:32] <deadprogram> the only monitor I've been able to get to work, is my 1080p TV at 1920x1080
[23:34] <friggle> I've had no problems with a 1920x122 monitor (just get black bars), but haven't attempted anything less than 1920x1080
[23:35] <friggle> *1920x1200
[23:42] * ReggieUK (ReggieUK@5aca563f.bb.sky.com) Quit ()
[23:44] <friggle> deadprogram: I don't see the fb resolution set in cmdline.txt
[23:45] <deadprogram> These two kernel parameters set the with and height.
[23:45] <deadprogram> bcm2708_fb.FBWIDTH
[23:45] <deadprogram> bcm2708_fb.FBHEIGHT
[23:45] <deadprogram> To use, just prepend to cmdline.txt. eg:
[23:45] <deadprogram> bcm2708_fb.FBWIDTH=640 bcm2708_fb.FBHEIGHT=480 dwc_otg.lpm_enable=0 console=ttyAMA0,115200 kgdboc=ttyAMA0,115200 console=tty1 root=/dev/mmcblk0p2 rootfstype=ext3 rootwait
[23:46] <deadprogram> at least according to the readme.txt
[23:49] <friggle> deadprogram: I don't have that readme. I don't have those params in cmdline.txt, but they are present in the kernel command line shown in /var/log/messages
[23:50] <friggle> i.e. some extra parameters seem to be prepended for me
[23:51] <friggle> deadprogram: does your kernel command line just have bcm2708_fb.{FBWIDTH,FBHEIGHT} occuring once? Do you get any messages from bcm2708fb?
[23:53] <friggle> deadprogram: also, out of interest. What's your kernel build? I'm '' built on sep 6th
[23:55] * IT_Sean (~IT_Sean@applefritter/IRCStaff/UltimateMacUser1) has joined #raspberrypi
[23:55] <mdavey> friggle: same here - looks like you have the same image as me
