[0:00] * iMatttt (~imatttt@cpc3-farn4-0-0-cust594.6-2.cable.virginmedia.com) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[0:04] <deadprogram> we all seem to have same build
[0:05] <ShiftPlusOne> hmmm. open gles documentation sucks =/
[0:14] <mdavey> yup, that seems to only change the memory size of the framebuffer, not the actual hdmi mode
[0:27] * ukscone1 (~Russell@cpe-68-173-234-162.nyc.res.rr.com) has joined #raspberrypi

[0:50] <deadprogram> this looks interesting http://www.omappedia.org/wiki/Bootargs_for_enabling_display
[0:54] <mdavey> deadprogram: except it isn't an omap board ;) prepending "video=640x480-32@50" might be worth a go, thou
[0:56] <traeak> mdavey: you have one of these yourself ?
[0:57] <mdavey> traeak: an alpha board?
[0:57] <traeak> yeah
[0:57] * deadprogram (~ron@cpe-76-172-24-111.socal.res.rr.com) Quit (Ping timeout: 240 seconds)
[0:57] <mdavey> yeah, temporarily
[0:57] <ShiftPlusOne> hmm... perhaps it's time to update the tutorials to use the raspberry pi patch and a 2.6 kernel? =/
[0:57] <traeak> ahhh cool
[0:57] <traeak> they asking your advice on pcb layout ?
[0:57] <mdavey> who?
[0:58] <traeak> sorry, mistook you for someone else :-p
[0:58] <traeak> mdavey: you play on thedingoo IRC ?
[0:58] * deadprogram (~ron@cpe-76-172-24-111.socal.res.rr.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:59] <mdavey> nope
[1:00] <ShiftPlusOne> What's all this Synopsis stuff? Not another binary blob, is it?
[1:02] <mdavey> Synopsis is the name of the ethernet+usb hub IIRC. The drivers are open source.
[1:02] <ShiftPlusOne> ah ok, thanks
[1:03] <ShiftPlusOne> good to see dev boards being put to a good use
[1:03] <ShiftPlusOne> (vgrade)
[1:09] <mdavey> Actually, I think it might be the on-board USB OTG that has a synopsys driver.

[20:30] <traeak> umm
[20:30] <traeak> how can i get help from pibot without spamming everyone else ?
[20:31] <ShiftPlusOne> send it a private message
[20:31] <ShiftPlusOne> with !help
[20:31] <traeak> ie: i can't RTFM if i don't know anything about the manual
[20:31] <ShiftPlusOne> (I wasn't being serious about the spoon feeding)

[22:10] <midnightmagic> Any news on whether that 24GFLOPS is going to be available to gen-purpose application programmers via something like OpenCL in the future?
[22:18] <ShiftPlusOne> probably best to ask on the forum
[22:23] <mdavey> midnightmagic: that is the intention, but may not be available at launch
[22:42] * ReimuHakurei (~reimu@208.119.81.194) has joined #raspberrypi
[22:45] <midnightmagic> okay, thanks. because there are some high-computation applications for this which would make the raspberrypi a replacement for most high-end GPU if 24GFLOPS is avail in <1W. Cause that's like.. current FPGA performance:watt.
[22:48] * iMatttt (~imatttt@cpc3-farn4-0-0-cust594.6-2.cable.virginmedia.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[22:48] <midnightmagic> so.. game-changing and stuff. :)
[22:51] <midnightmagic> the awesome corollary to that is that small solar panels can power it. :)
