[0:52] <mkopack> Eh, I think it's just a case of we don't really know how RS+Farn are fulfilling orders, and given all the damn system problems there were that morning, who knows if orders/interest submissions got lost?

[1:26] <ReggieUK> pdp7, automated build system
[1:26] <piless_> DJWillis: what's the soldering like? The other guy said it looked like shit
[1:26] <DJWillis> pdp7: it's a build system and Angstrom is a distro, currently an Xfce image ;), console image and a few other test things.
[1:27] <pdp7> ah, so this would be to run Angstrom like the Beagles, gotcha
[1:27] <piless_> DJWillis: btw, if you coild your usb cables like in that photo you're going to have a bad time.
[1:27] <DJWillis> piless_: well there is greese on the PCB but soldering looks ok.
[1:27] <piless_> *coil
[1:28] <Matt> pdp7?
[1:28] <DJWillis> piless_: it was not actually pluuged in ;).
[1:28] <piless_> DJWillis: That's not what I mean.
[1:28] <piless_> DJWillis: You're going to damage the cable if you coil it too tightly
[1:29] <DJWillis> piless_: I know but been storing my cables like that for years and years with no problems, it is not really that tight a coil.
[1:29] <DJWillis> Plus, I have SO many usb leads ;). Anyway, bed time.
[1:30] <IT_Sean> O.o
[1:30] <Matt> bed?
[1:30] <IT_Sean> Aus?

[8:55] <shirro> efika have an imx debian sid image which has got hardfloat versions of the freescale libs in it. It is huge, has a lot of crap in it - just fits on a 4G sd card

[8:56] <shirro> but you can run full hardfloat and still have access to openGL ES, OpenVG and the imx-xserver. unfortunately doesn't seem to have the codecs so no h264 playback :-(
[8:57] <mpthompson> Are you running it a 1GHz? I remember when I updated to a newer kernel my MX53 ran at 800Mhz rather than 1GHz which made things noticiably slower.

[9:05] <mpthompson> piless: How generous. Do you take a check. ;-)
[9:05] <shirro> mpthompson: seriously. much more interested in a debian hardfloat than some minor distro and I am pretty sure some of them are getting priority dev boards.

[9:07] <mpthompson> Having a Pi would help me work on the installation scripts and such to make it easier for people to bring up Debian from the repository. Having to use debootstrap is pretty ugly.

[9:08] * zyklon (~zyklon@ Quit (Ping timeout: 260 seconds)
[9:09] <mpthompson> How is Fedora looking? I'm not sure it's hard float either. Places I've look were wishy-washy on the subject which is kinda strange.
[9:10] * zyklon (~zyklon@ has joined #raspberrypi
[9:10] * PiBot sets mode +v zyklon
[9:11] <piless> fedora is full of shit
[9:11] <mpthompson> These autobuilder scripts I've got going are pretty neat. There are still bits of it that are manual that I need to work on, but it's sooooo much easier now to get the packages built.
[9:11] <shirro> i think only the gentoo and arch people are brave enough so far. I really would like to know if hardfloat is worth it on the Pi. Nobody has put up a decent set of benchmarks.
[9:11] <piless> it's outdated and full of bugs
[9:12] <shirro> you are doing wheezy and not squeeze aren't you?
[9:12] <mpthompson> Well, I'll have my repository up by next weekend (I hope). Anyone who has Pi hardware can then use it to instlal a minimal version of Debian armhf to compile real benchmarks.
[9:13] <mpthompson> Yeah, I'm tracking wheezy. Armhf is not available for squeeze.
[9:13] <piless> mpthompson: hexxeh will have one soon
[9:14] <mpthompson> Benchmarks are not really my thing. It's something I'll let others dive into and I'll wait for the feedback.
[9:14] <mpthompson> hexxeh? I'm not familiar with that person.
[9:14] <shirro> hexxeh has done gentoo and chromium cross compiles I think
[9:15] <piless> hes working on a chrome os port
[9:15] <mpthompson> Gentoo is the distribution where you basically compile everything yourself. Correct?
[9:15] <shirro> His chrome os stuff for x86 is here http://chromeos.hexxeh.net/
[9:15] <piless> yeah
[9:15] <shirro> He posted his gentoo stuff for pi to irc if someone cares to search the logs.
[9:16] <shirro> mpthompson: I think he has cross compiled a lot of gentoo so people don't have to build native
[9:16] <mpthompson> Do gentoo people share packages amongst themselves? Otherwise, it's going to be painful for people to use who aren't sophisticated enough to cross compile.
[9:16] <shirro> not sure if he did hardfloat or not

[9:18] * zyklon (~zyklon@ has joined #raspberrypi
[9:18] * PiBot sets mode +v zyklon
[9:18] <piless> from what I understand the whole point of compiling everything for gentoo is to perfect it for your particular hardware.. whereas the pis all have the same hardware.. so you really wouldn't need to self compile.
[9:19] <piless> plus it would take years to compile on the actual pi
[9:19] <shirro> he did do hardfloat cross compile. it is here: http://radium.hexxeh.net/cros/
[9:21] <mpthompson> Looks good, but I think I'll be sticking with Debian. I'm too familiar with it and I'm too old to try something else. :-)
[9:21] <shirro> Not meaning to take anything away from that effort but I think Gentoo makes that relatively easy compared with Debian
[9:22] <mpthompson> From what I've seen, Debian would be virtually impossible to cross compile. Some packages support it, but those seem to be the exception. LOTS of things would break if you tried to do the whole distribution.
[9:22] <mpthompson> It's hard enough to do natively.
[9:23] <mpthompson> I'm impressed it works so well with Gentoo. I wonder how they do it?
[9:23] <shirro> as much as I love using debian and the dependency stuff is brilliant as is the community - there is something to be said for the good old bsd ports make world style of thing.
[9:24] <shirro> building and using are two different things though
[9:24] <mpthompson> Ah yes, BSD ports. I've used FreeBSD a lot in the past. A few commands can compile the entire kernel and the entire base runtime.

[9:29] * PiBot sets mode +v zyklon
[9:30] <mpthompson> I see how Gentoo can then be cross compiled. It seems such a trick goes against one of the core philosophies of Debian though.
[9:30] <shirro> I think chromium os is another that has a build script that just builds the whole thing. not saying that you don't have to work out compile flags, debug stuff or actually do the build. just that debian is much scarier
[9:30] <mpthompson> As I'm discovering.
[9:31] <Hexxeh> You could totally just use QEMU to build your Debian packages
[9:31] <Hexxeh> Fire up a versatilepb
[9:31] <mpthompson> The thing about Debian is that once the port is made, it's much easier for end users who just want to download and go.
[9:32] <shirro> mpthompson: I agree. all the distros have their good and bad but I settled on debian over a decade ago and it would take something hugely better to get me to move
[9:32] <mpthompson> Hexxeh, I've considered that. I can perhaps even adapt Amazon EC2 systems to really throw some muscle behind it.
[9:32] <Hexxeh> you'd be better off with just a beefy machine really
[9:33] <Hexxeh> also, god damn UPS
[9:33] <Hexxeh> they 'can't find' my package :P
[9:34] <mpthompson> Yeah, but with Amazon E2C you can throw 10, 20, 100 servers at the problem.
[9:34] <shirro> it would be good to divide debian packages into ones that are well behaved and not. cross compile the really safe ones. distcc the ones that get arch from config and only build the shitty ones natively
[9:34] <Hexxeh> true, but it'll host you a boatload
[9:34] <Hexxeh> *cost
[9:35] <mpthompson> Yeah, but it will cost you either way in the end.
[9:37] <mpthompson> I run QEMU on my quadcore AMD desktop system and the performance is definately slower than my iMX53 which is a Cortex A8 at 1GHz.
[9:37] <mpthompson> QEMU has it's place, but it's not tuned for performance.
[9:38] <mpthompson> Still, it's easy to replicate.
[9:38] <shirro> yeah, but you can probably run 8 qemus on the amd desktop to your 1 A8
[9:39] <mpthompson> I haven't tried to run more than one instance. I'll have to look into that. Bumping my memory up from 4GB to 8GB is much cheaper than buying the iMX53s.

[11:58] <Hexxeh> no damage?
[11:58] <piless> 700ma for B, 500ma for A
[11:58] <piless> Hexxeh: It shouldn't
[11:58] <flaushy> but only because it needs to maybe power usb stuff
[11:58] <flaushy> so it might run just fine
[11:59] <piless> flaushy: no

[12:00] <Hexxeh> at least i know the quality on that is decent

[12:00] <piless> I think the new ipad charger sucks up almost 2a
[12:00] <Hexxeh> this is a 4S charger
[12:00] <Hexxeh> says 2.1A on it
[12:01] <DJWillis> flaushy: the USB ethernet I/C is going to draw juice regardless of it's use, ok, not 200mA but a few other bits will push it up.
[12:01] <Hexxeh> 10w, 5v, sounds right
[12:01] <piless> Hexxeh: Completely throwing usb standards out the window
[12:01] <Hexxeh> just as well, if they'd stuck to standards, it wouldn't work with my pi :P
[12:01] <flaushy> DJWillis: right. The question is how big is the safety margin
[12:01] <xlq> piless: Yeah, thanks EU :(
[12:01] <Hexxeh> 500ma ought to be enough for anyone
[12:02] <Hexxeh> sounds familiar
[12:02] <flaushy> DJWillis: furthermore how good are the drivers and how many components are powered off
[12:02] <piless> I think the standard lets you go to 1a or something if there's no data
[12:02] <Hexxeh> yeah
[12:02] <Hexxeh> iirc you short the data lines together to do that?
[12:03] <piless> Hexxeh: Crack open your usb wall plug
[12:03] <flaushy> piless: 500 ma at most was the std iirc

[12:05] <Hexxeh> or are you gonna power it via the header
[12:06] <xlq> Don't know.
[12:06] <piless> xlq: Why waste it on the pi? You can buy a micro usb wall charger for a couple of quid.
[12:06] <xlq> The power supply has those screw post thingies, and also loudspeaker-type connectors.

[12:29] <mjr> Right. Thanks for the info.
[12:29] <Hexxeh> interesting
[12:30] <Hexxeh> if you don't have a usb stick in
[12:30] <Hexxeh> sd card is mmcbllk0
[12:30] <Hexxeh> if you do
[12:30] <Hexxeh> it becomes mmcblk1
[12:30] <piless> why would it do that?
[12:31] <Hexxeh> i don't know, but it seems to be what it's doing
[12:31] <mjr> That's funky. Is that the Pi, then?
[12:31] <RaYmAn> Hexxeh: what kind of usb stick?
[12:31] <Hexxeh> trying to boot from a usb stick now since it doesn't like my sd card
[12:31] <Hexxeh> uh, regular old 4gb usb stick?
[12:31] <piless> Is that a function to make it boot off usb devices over the sd?
[12:32] <Hexxeh> in any case
[12:32] <Hexxeh> i can't get it to boot
[12:32] <Hexxeh> maybe i'm wrong
[12:32] <Hexxeh> what device is the usb stick /supposed/ to be?
[12:33] <RaYmAn> usually something like /dev/sdX
[12:33] <piless> Don't you have to do something special to the filesystem to mark it as a bootable device?
[12:33] <Hexxeh> piless: i literally just burned the debian image to the usb stick and tweaked the cmdline
[12:33] <Hexxeh> RaYmAn: it's usually different on arm?
[12:33] <piless> At least that's what I had to do when I stuck ubuntu on a thumbstick years ago
[12:33] <RaYmAn> piless: that's mostly (if not exclusively) X86
[12:33] <flaushy> does uboot do problems?
[12:33] <RaYmAn> Hexxeh: no? Not over usb - it's how linux handles it
[12:34] <flaushy> or what does rpi use?
[12:34] <piless> my rpi is going to be powered by the tears of small children
[12:36] * SpeedEvil ponders.
[12:36] <mjr> Really, usb mass storage devices do tend to be sdX on any linux. mmcblkX is for when you have a rawer interface to the MMC/SD card reader chip.

[12:37] <flaushy> cjbaird: they even sold them via tideals
[12:38] <SpeedEvil> At 1ml/min, assuming the tears fall through a distance of 10m, I make that you need around 2000 children to power the Pi.
[12:38] <SpeedEvil> Assuming a 70% efficient turbine.

[12:39] <deafanon> I'm wondering if anyone can recommend a good source for bulk buying SD cards for the rPi?
[12:39] <Hexxeh> i only get 19MB/s from the class 10 i'm having trouble with...
[12:39] <deafanon> in the UK
[12:39] <SpeedEvil> Hexxeh: I get 12, from a really old 1GB microSD in my phone.
[12:39] <piless> deafanon: How big is bulk?
[12:40] <piless> 7dayshop.com is really cheap and gives bulk discounts
[12:40] <RaYmAn> Hexxeh: class usually refers to write speed (most manufacturers)... I have a class 2 sandisk that gives 20MB/s reads and 2MB/s writes :P
[12:40] <Hexxeh> strange :P
[12:40] <Hexxeh> i always assumed it factored in read speeds too
[12:41] <RaYmAn> yeah, it would make sense, but unfortunately not what manufacturers do :(
[12:42] <Hexxeh> has anyone with a pi actually managed to boot it from USB? :/
[12:42] <deafanon> piless: I'm not sure right now how many I'd be wanting to get, it'd probably be a London Hackspace bulk buy
[12:42] <deafanon> which class would be best? 5?
[12:42] <piless> there is no class 5
[12:43] <piless> class 6 is best for the raspberrypi

[13:33] <Hexxeh> sda
[13:33] <Hexxeh> but it's just not there during boot
[13:34] <RaYmAn> I guess ramdisk will be the way to go then
[13:34] <mjr> and good if it's just a matter of having the kernel not try to drive the card in an unsupported mode
[13:34] <mjr> better than the earlier hypothesis that it was the blob doing something wonky

[14:21] <piless> Stick android on it. My phone has similar specs and can browse the web fine
[14:21] <zgreg> we'll see, but I doubt it

[14:21] <xlq> [13:18] <zgreg> the multi process system eats up memory very quickly
[14:22] <zgreg> piless: it's not running a huge hi-res screen though, uses a highly optimized mobile browser, and often falls back to mobile sites
[14:22] <xlq> But forked processes can share a lot of memory, so don't be fooled by high memory usage as displayed by top or ps
[14:22] <M0RBD> To be honest... BeOS from 1998 runs smoother than ChromeOS :D
[14:22] <zgreg> xlq: of course, but every process has a certain overhead. just a few megabytes, but that adds up quickly if you have less than 200 MB to start with.
[14:23] <flaushy> M0RBD: i saw the same demos from BeOS in 2000 and later at their booth... they were still impressive
[14:23] <M0RBD> flaushy: indeed.
[14:23] <xlq> zgreg: Hmm.
[14:23] <flaushy> M0RBD: did you follow Haiku?
[14:23] <M0RBD> flaushy: yes to a certain extent.
[14:23] <flaushy> is it "alive"?
[14:24] <zgreg> likely there's about 180 MB left after GPU memory and linux kernel
[14:24] <zgreg> and that's not much, really
[14:24] <M0RBD> haiku-os.org seems so.
[14:24] <piless> can openelec run a browser?
[14:24] <Hexxeh> 160MB left for Xorg/Chrome, I cheked
[14:24] <Hexxeh> *checked
[14:25] <M0RBD> flaushy: 4.5 used to have a PPC port which worked on Mac... however I recall correctly Apple did something naughty and 5.0 did not have ppc included.
[14:25] <M0RBD> flaushy: anyhow it was really impressive back then compared to Linux evn...

[14:27] <zgreg> a single user system
[14:27] <flaushy> and zeta was sold here on tv as a great os... so it is basicly dead
[14:28] <flaushy> if anyone bought it, he got crap. So i guess it is burnt
[14:29] <piless> Hexxeh: Regardless of how personally eben would feel it would be a massive PR disaster for the foundation to kick up a fuss
[14:29] <Hexxeh> meh, i guess
[14:29] <Hexxeh> tbf, judging by his username, he's too young to have a paypal or ebay acount anyway
[14:29] <Hexxeh> so it's tempting to report him and get it removed for that reason
[14:29] <piless> Here's hoping he sells it to a nigerian scammer
[14:30] <flaushy> i dont think it is a desaster
[14:30] <cjbaird> You don't have to go to Nigera to find an eBay scammer. :P
[14:30] <flaushy> it brings to attention that the foundation tries with everyone
[14:31] <piless> Hexxeh: Also it could be the case that the kid took it home, and the scumbag parents took it off him/her to sell it

[14:33] <piless> M0RBD: I am certain that the generation before yours said the exact same thing about your generation
[14:33] <M0RBD> heh
[14:33] <flaushy> question is if he tried to get a pi in the first place, or whether he gotten it by chance (uh my class was selected)
[14:34] <piless> flaushy: It's scummy. It was a gift, if he had no plans to use it then he should have said no so another kid could get it.
[14:34] <M0RBD> piless: agreed.
[14:35] <flaushy> nowadays you get so many advertisement gifts, so why? just because this marketing gift is from pi foundation?
[14:36] <flaushy> and by selling it he gives the chance for someone else to use it
[14:36] <piless> flaushy: The creator of the device personally gave it to him..
[14:36] <M0RBD> flaushy: But if he's not into computing why did he go to the lanuch event?
[14:36] <flaushy> M0RBD: see my question above
[14:36] <cjbaird> Mummy can but a lot of cigs and scotch with 173 pounds.. :P
[14:36] <flaushy> if you are a regional and there is a huge fuzz about it?
[14:36] <piless> flaushy: Do you honestly believe another kid is going to get the winning ebay bid?
[14:37] <M0RBD> piless: nope
[14:37] <flaushy> piless: no. Do you honestly think someone is willing to pay 170 just for a device that gets shipped in a couple of days?
[14:37] <M0RBD> flaushy: apparently there are 19 people atm.
[14:37] <flaushy> M0RBD: yeah collectors i bet.
[14:37] <piless> flaushy: No shit, but it's definitely not going to be a kid.
[14:38] <M0RBD> err 19 bids
[14:38] <flaushy> so. First batch was dev boards.
[14:38] <RaYmAn> hm, starting price was actually 0.99GBP
[14:38] <RaYmAn> Slightly less douchy =P
[14:38] <piless> RaYmAn: Yeah but that doesn't mean anything.
[14:38] <piless> RaYmAn: They can set a hidden minimum that they will actually sell for
[14:40] <RaYmAn> piless: I guess - but it's slightly less douchy if that was set sufficiently low - We won't know , but people certainly have bid it up themselves (e.g. if no one wanted ot pay 170, it would still be at around 30-40GBP)
[14:40] <M0RBD> I hope RaspberryPI get's sold at Craplin here in the UK, that would atleast end online speculation here.
[14:41] <piless> RaYmAn: Well it's a 3 day auction and it's not going to grab any attention starting at ??50

[15:16] <zgreg> delinquentme: do you want to control servos, etc. with the pi?
[15:17] <zgreg> if that is the case, you have pretty strict realtime requirements, and the pi won't fulfill them
[15:18] <PaulFertser> zgreg: how do you tell pi wouldn't be able to react fast? It's definitely possible to run a RTOS on it.
[15:18] <zgreg> which aren't available on the pi
[15:19] <delinquentme> zgreg, yeah thats part of the issue ... i'm really interested in how I can get that poll rate to where it needs to be to run things
[15:19] <PaulFertser> zgreg: do you mean Xenomai won't run on it? Why?
[15:19] <zgreg> but even with a capable RTOS, you'll likely get pretty horrible jitter,
[15:19] <flaushy> hmm a small addon board with many PWMs would be nice :)
[15:20] <zgreg> IIRC you can't really get better than 50ns jitter on those ARM SoCs
[15:20] <zgreg> just use a small 8-bit MCU for the hard realtime stuff

[15:20] <hamitron> won't it depend on how accurate you need it?
[15:21] <zgreg> hamitron: of course, but for typical control applications 50ns is pretty bad...
[15:22] <zgreg> PaulFertser: xenomai might be able to run on it (if drivers don't ruin it), but that will not really help much
[15:22] <delinquentme> I've basically got up to 12 cores on this machine. I need 2 steppers, 1 string pot and 1 linear actuator
[15:23] <delinquentme> per core
[15:23] <hamitron> I guess the r-pi would be good, to use as the user interface.... to program another board connected, that is more fit for the purpose of control
[15:23] <zgreg> the raspberry pi in general isn't very good for low-level I/O stuff
[15:23] <zgreg> hamitron: yes
[15:25] <PaulFertser> zgreg: i think the latency and jitter requirements depend a lot on the target application.
[15:25] <PaulFertser> Also, arm11 is much better in this regard than arm9.
[15:26] <zgreg> http://veter-project.blogspot.de/2011/09/real-time-enough-about-pwms-and-shaky.html
[15:26] <zgreg> check this out
[15:27] <hamitron> tbh, I have a lot of doubt about the r-pi's decisions on design.... what is it REALLY for? it is cheap for education, but why have this video processing? is that purely for educational video tutorials?
[15:27] <delinquentme> yeah I think I need to find the appropriate boards for the polling functions ... but then do I have those run directly off of a desktop? or do I have the desktop server write to a pi .. then to MCs?
[15:30] <zgreg> PaulFertser: of course, but again, for the typical stuff (servo control, etc.) it's not adequate
[15:30] <PaulFertser> zgreg: interesting article but why bitbang instead of using hardware pwm?
[15:30] <mjr> Well it needs to have a gpu to be able to drive a decent display. GPUs tend to come with some video processing capabilities.
[15:30] <zgreg> PaulFertser: because there's only a very limited number of hardware PWMs available
[15:30] * earthshine (~Mike@cpc1-orpi1-0-0-cust99.2-3.cable.virginmedia.com) has left #raspberrypi
[15:31] <zgreg> I'm not sure if the pi even makes hardware pwm available
[15:31] <PaulFertser> zgreg: if those are not enough one can use an external IC, right?
[15:31] <zgreg> and if it does, it's probably only a single channel
[15:31] <zgreg> PaulFertser: ...yes, as I was saying before :)
[15:32] <flaushy> that was his 8bit reference ^^
[15:32] <hamitron> mjr, but why have hdmi as a feature, in terms of education?
[15:32] <PaulFertser> zgreg: you're suggesting using an additional uC while i'm talking about hard logic.
[15:32] <zgreg> on a crappy 8-bit MCU you can easily do software PWM with < 1us jitter
[15:32] <mjr> umm, because hdmi is a cheap and common way to hook up a display to it?
[15:32] <zgreg> or you can use the hardware pwm in the mcu, of course
[15:33] <zgreg> PaulFertser: which is less versatile than an MCU, but not any cheaper
[15:33] <shirro> because it is supposed to be like an 80s micro you can hook it up to the family tv. family tvs all have hdmi now
[15:33] <PaulFertser> zgreg: well, ok, i see your point
[15:33] <mjr> cheap as in integrated in lots of chips too, like the one in the pi
[15:33] <hamitron> shirro, not all have hdmi
[15:33] <hamitron> :|
[15:33] <hamitron> hdmi is sort of new
[15:34] <mjr> hence the composite output
[15:34] <shirro> countries like australia gave out a cheque to everyone to keep the big bad GFC away. We all bought tvs.
[15:34] <Hexxeh> god. damn.
[15:34] <zgreg> the pi would have been quite the killer with an avr/pic integrated directly on the board :)
[15:34] <Hexxeh> why does this just keep kernel panicking

[15:35] <zgreg> I guess it'll be quite expensive also
[15:36] <zgreg> and why PIC?
[15:36] <hamitron> won't an open source addon board be released, that everyone can make? ;)
[15:36] <zgreg> PIC is pretty much the only popular MCU architecture that does not have free compilers available
[15:36] <xlq> zgreg: Gertboard changed to AVR
[15:36] <zgreg> ah, cool
[15:37] <xlq> That's because the 8-bit PIC architecture is horrible.
[15:37] <zgreg> it is
[15:37] <zgreg> but which architecture do you mean? it's actually three...
[15:37] <xlq> Three 8-bit PIC architectures?
[15:37] <zgreg> which makes it even worse
[15:37] <zgreg> yes

[15:45] <zgreg> never mind the fuck that it isn't really interesting whether your MCU sips less power if it is below 1 uA
[15:45] <zgreg> err, fact, not fuck :)
[15:45] <hamitron> haha
[15:45] <SpeedEvil> 1uA is 100mAh over 10 years

[15:52] <Hexxeh> it seems a large chunk of time spent booting the debian image is wasted getting a dhcp lease
[15:52] <Hexxeh> shouldn't that /not/ block the boot?
[15:52] <xlq> Hexxeh: Depends. Maybe you need to mount some NFS stuff.
[15:52] <xlq> But yeah, that irritates me.
[15:53] <Hexxeh> if you don't have a network cable plugged in, it takes over a minute to timeout
[15:53] <xlq> It should at least detect no carrier :)
[15:53] <Hexxeh> doesn't appear to
[15:53] <mchou> It does if you enable network hotplugging
[15:55] <mjr> which inspires me to ask if the pi can wake on lan ;P
[15:55] <xlq> Why would you want that?
[15:56] <xlq> It uses so little power already! :P
[15:56] <mchou> mjr: just keep the pi running
[15:57] <mjr> yeah it probably eats much less alive than a desktop that waits for wake packets, but hey

[16:01] <Hexxeh> getting pwned by kernel panic though
[16:01] <mjr> pwnic
[16:03] <SpeedEvil> 3.5 is painful in some apps
[16:04] <mjr> certainly
[16:04] <Hexxeh> usually if it kernel panics, not syncing, you get some useful error spew before it
[16:04] <Hexxeh> but nada, nothing
[16:05] <masterburner> hey, does anyone know when the people that didn't get in right at the start will start begin to receive their Pis? can't wait to start messing around with it :)
[16:07] <piless> masterburner: january
[16:08] <mkopack> Hexxeh: Is this with the Debian build or with your own?
[16:08] <Hexxeh> my own
[16:08] <masterburner> very funny
[16:08] <mkopack> Ah, but works fine with the Debian right?
[16:08] <Hexxeh> i bet even if i copied the debian fs to the partition it'd do it though

[16:09] <mkopack> Hmmm, so it's not working at all? Or just not working with your OS build?
[16:09] <shirro> try another sd card ;-)
[16:09] <masterburner> I am sitting tight... just wondering how long it'll take ;)
[16:09] <Hexxeh> mkopack: It refuses to boot from any partition I create
[16:09] <Hexxeh> Premade images work okay, but it doesn't like anything I give it
[16:10] <masterburner> seeing all these posts and the lovely conversation in the IRC about people getting their Pis running really puts me in the mood to build something with it :)
[16:10] <mkopack> masterburner: Nobody knows that right now??? Not until RS+Farnel update their inventory systems, which Liz indicated should happen next week
[16:10] <friggle> Hexxeh: pepedog posted some scripts on the forum he uses to set up the partitions
[16:10] <mkopack> Hexxeh: Hmm, ok, so it's just something you're doing then???
[16:10] <masterburner> alright, thank you

[16:14] <haltdef_> :(
[16:14] <mkopack> haltdef_: I thought about that, and was going to do it last year, but then the eye dr. said my eyes started changing again and I was no longer a candidate for Lasik.. Grrr
[16:14] <friggle> Hexxeh: boot a kernel with a built in initrd and poke around to see what's going wrong?

[16:14] <haltdef_> I'm not and never will be a candidate for any kind of laser eye surgery ever
[16:14] <masterburner> I wouldn't want my eyes lasered... what if something goes wrong?
[16:14] <Hexxeh> gonna try and take the debian image and gut it with my own partition images
[16:15] <mkopack> masterburner: Yeah, that's why I kinda waited on it
[16:15] <friggle> yeah, might be easiest
[16:15] <masterburner> yeah, they do the procedure 10 times every day, bla bla bla, but what IF...
[16:15] <haltdef_> always that risk too
[16:15] <masterburner> you'd completely mess up your eyes
[16:15] <masterburner> glasses work fine for me
[16:15] <mkopack> Yeah, and my eyes and hands ARE my profession
[16:15] <masterburner> cleaning them is a 20 second job :P
[16:15] <haltdef_> the surgeon believed that risk to be far higher than acceptable with my eyes
[16:15] <mkopack> I don't like glasses though because they're a pain when riding the motorcycle
[16:15] <masterburner> well... eyes are handy for just about everything
[16:16] <M0RBD> even if you do laser treatment you will highly likely get a regression later.
[16:16] <masterburner> hmmm, that's a good point... wearing a helmet + glasses is a pain in the ass
[16:16] <haltdef_> some companies will redo it for free if it does regress
[16:16] <mkopack> As a former boss told me when I mentioned to him that I started motorcycle racing - "I don't care what you do so long as your hands and your head are in one piece and able to work"
[16:16] <M0RBD> haltdef_: if the eye allows it...
[16:16] <haltdef_> aside from when you hit 45 and you can't focus as well, nothing they can do about that
[16:16] <haltdef_> mm
[16:17] <mkopack> Thinking that when I go for my yearly I'm going to get new contacts AND new glasses this time around
[16:17] <masterburner> gotta reboot this old brick, brb

[16:18] <haltdef_> whack em in, forget

[16:19] <mkopack> I have to use daily wear
[16:19] <mkopack> replace every month
[16:19] <haltdef_> I have dailies atm, monthly didn't work for me at all

[16:39] <xlq> Is prefetch desirable without very much RAM?

[16:58] <friggle> and people like Linaro and others are interested
[16:58] <hamitron> I was sort of hoping it would lead to proper linux builds arriving to android devices :/
[16:58] <piless> friggle: I'm just recyling old news
[16:58] <friggle> maybe wakelocks etc isn't going to get in

[17:20] <_av500_> yep
[17:20] <_av500_> xlq: schools might want it, but not because of the 35quid price

[17:21] <piless> _av500_: Schools would want it because the current system is complete wank. In IT lessons all they teach is basic office skills.. How to use word, how to use excel.. There are no proper programming courses until you reach uni level

[17:25] <Hexxeh> 32MB is dedicated to the GPU
[17:25] <Hexxeh> that means everything else is squeezed into 24MB

[17:26] <xlq> hamitron: Congratulations on finding a school that actually does CS.
[17:26] <hamitron> I moved to a 6th form college specially
[17:27] <hamitron> there were actually a few schools that offer it in the city.... my rural school didn't even offer IT
[17:28] <hamitron> but I do think too much importance is put on the quality of the teachers.... you need students to get interested in a stylish "geeky" way
[17:28] <hamitron> then a lot of it is self learn
[17:29] <hamitron> experience
[17:29] <hamitron> experience the power of programming, rather than getting pissed and laid

[18:04] <Hexxeh> yeah
[18:04] <friggle> depends a lot on the particular card
[18:04] <piless> friggle: You sure? They more or less use the same tech
[18:05] <Matt> the industrial ones do IIRC
[18:05] <friggle> piless: there's *major* variance in the controller. See e.g. https://wiki.linaro.org/WorkingGroups/Kernel/Projects/FlashCardSurvey
[18:05] <piless> friggle: Yeah but it's not the controllers that break
[18:06] <friggle> piless: but the controllers that cause common workloads to result in massive write amplification increase the chance of failure
[18:06] <piless> I'll take your word for it
[18:06] <friggle> piless: and the controller is going to make a difference for wear levelling.

[18:26] <friggle> Hexxeh: some people are interested in enabling GLES backends for Qt and Gtk and having those supported within X (though the old 2d X path would be unaccelerated)
[18:26] <friggle> Hexxeh: I don't know of anyone in particular who's looking at using the DMA engines in the public datasheet to make a faster x driver, but I hope someone will take a look
[18:27] <DJWillis> friggle: well I want to get the GPU libs in and clean up that situation a bit. I'll try and bundle up something to get an image done. To be honest we could do a lot worse than some ARM routines hacked onto FBDEV, there are already options for that.
[18:27] <Hexxeh> hmm, what's the state of things in X at the moment?
[18:27] <Hexxeh> nothing is accelerated at all?
[18:27] <SimonT> Has anyone heard anything from ExportFarnell yet?
[18:28] <friggle> Hexxeh: correct, just using the unmodified fbdev driver
[18:28] <Hexxeh> so the gles libraries aren't going to help in X11 3d apps then
[18:28] <Hexxeh> like chrome
[18:28] <Hexxeh> hmm
[18:28] <friggle> Hexxeh: Dom posted some code for the kernel framebuffer driver to use the DMA engines, but nobody actually uses the Linux framebuffer apis for blitting etc
[18:29] <friggle> Hexxeh: yeah, they're not aware of anything other than the native Broadcom windowing system
[18:30] <vgrade> Hexxeh, you could use the hack mentioned about to get full screen gles acceleration
[18:30] <Hexxeh> vgrade: what hack?
[18:30] <Hexxeh> that'd totally work for me
[18:30] <Hexxeh> chrome is the only app that runs

[18:48] <flaushy> uh they build all arm on armv7?
[18:48] <flaushy> cool

[18:49] <flaushy> shirro: thx
[18:49] <DJWillis> flaushy: OE is all about cross compiled builds for many archs and platforms from one common base, that is it's reason to be ;).
[18:51] <flaushy> DJWillis: yeah i built OE and liked it
[18:51] <shirro> even a fast arm cpu is glacial for compiling. cross compiling makes a lot of sense.

[18:53] <friggle> flaushy: simple, fixing cross compilation for build systems that don't like it is a massive time sink
[18:53] <flaushy> okie, so computing time vs human error fixing time
[18:53] <shirro> debian is just too massive and too much legacy. it's strength is its weakness
[18:54] <DJWillis> Oh, cross building is a constant fight :o. You always have upstream hacks that trip you up every step of the way but at least OE gives you a nice framework to overcome the worst of it.
[18:56] <DJWillis> Anyone got a handy alsa setup/state for the RPi? If not i'll see what I can suck from the Debian image.
[18:57] <friggle> DJWillis: it doesn't just work if you modprobe the bcm2835 alsa module?

[20:26] <Hexxeh> has anyone tried a displaylink adaptor on a pi btw?
[20:26] <Hexxeh> those usb video card things
[20:26] <Hexxeh> might be a good cheap solution for those needing vga output
[20:26] <ReggieUK> kernel + rootfs + random apps.
[20:26] <friggle> not that I know of, though my understanding is they're very heavy on CPU
[20:26] <markus> ReggieUK: is it feasible to compile packages inside a qemu virtualization or is in not?
[20:26] <Hexxeh> ah, are they?
[20:26] <Hexxeh> i've never actually used one before

[20:27] <friggle> it seems you can get hdmi->vga converters for around ??20 or so. Surely that's not cheaper than a displaylink adaptor
[20:27] <ReggieUK> one is a custom system called 'minifs'

[20:28] <ReggieUK> afaik the drawbacks of compiling in qemu are speed
[20:28] <masterburner> I mean from hdmi to vga...
[20:28] <M0RBD> I wasn't able to go higher than 1280x1024 with sinet HDMI->VGA converters..
[20:28] <M0RBD> sinet = some argh..
[20:29] <markus> ReggieUK: compiling on my 2500K intel machine + qemu vs raspi. the first one must be faster right?
[20:29] <masterburner> you can't really go from hdmi to vga with some silly little microcontroller... you need quite some grunt to fully handle an hdmi signal AND generate the analog vga signals from that
[20:29] <friggle> anyone tried e.g. http://fit-pc.co.uk/Fit_VGA_Converter--product--24.html
[20:29] <DJWillis> GTK+ is eating my build machine (again)....

[20:48] <DJWillis> friggle: if I had sonic going well on TV I would have done a video ;). In fact if a lot of stuff worked correct I would have done a video.

[20:55] <markus> but you can just replace it with a kernel built for the cubox

[20:58] <DJWillis> friggle: is anyone looking at sorting a simple thin client distro for the Pi? I mean something really stripped down with just RDP, VNC, PCoIP etc.? Just stuck me that with the video output and some tweaking that is one awesome thin client box.
[20:59] <friggle> DJWillis: it's at the point where I don't know every developer who has a pi :) I don't know of anyone looking at that in particular. I was just looking at the angstrom online image builder you linked to. Looks great for all those people looking to use the rpi for a single purpose

[21:04] <Hexxeh> apparently the new debian image has a fix for the sd card issue?
[21:04] <Hexxeh> can anyone confirm?

[21:04] <hamitron> DJWillis, I got mine without the bag of crap
[21:04] <hamitron> ;)
[21:04] <Hexxeh> the 1.8v signalling problem
[21:04] <mchou> DJWillis: sheesh. hamitron has a penchant for recommending garbage
[21:04] <DJWillis> Hexxeh: if you get a patch let me know as I fold it in with my recipe.
[21:05] <masterburner> 1.8V signalling problem? don't SD cards always run on 3v3?
[21:05] <Hexxeh> masterburner: no
[21:05] <Hexxeh> masterburner: faster cards switch to 1.8v
[21:05] <DJWillis> masterburner: nope ;)
[21:05] <Hexxeh> DJWillis: there's a fix for a freescale board that has the same problem for the same reason

[21:06] <friggle> Hexxeh: I didn't think there was a fix for that, but I could be wrong
[21:06] <Hexxeh> friggle: more of a workaround
[21:07] <Hexxeh> controller claims it's capable of 1.8v signalling when it isn't
[21:07] <Hexxeh> if it's changed so the controller driver doesn't claim to support it
[21:07] <Hexxeh> it won't try switching to it
[21:07] <Hexxeh> and so you won't get the problem
[21:07] <friggle> Hexxeh: yeah, I mean I didn't see a mention of that in the changelog, just that a temporary change to sd card timeouts had been removed as it didn't make a difference
[21:07] <Hexxeh> the card won't run as fast as it should, of course

[21:52] <mkopack> Ok, picked up a pair of Samsung Class 6 SD cards??? Packaging said MaxRead 24MB/s, max Write 13MB/s
[21:53] <mkopack> Figured that would be decent
[21:54] <friggle> maybe, but the max read/write doesn't tell you too much when considering how it will perform with an ext4 filesystem
[21:54] <mkopack> yeah ,true
[21:54] <friggle> though samsung seem to do reasonably well in the linaro flash card survey (have a decent number of AUs)
[21:54] <friggle> kingston seem to be the worst
[21:54] <mkopack> it's all a complete guessing game it seems
[21:55] <mkopack> Frys also had a 32GB Patriot Torqx 2 SSD for $39 after $50 MIR...
[21:55] <friggle> mkopack: somewhat. Arnd Bergman's work I was referencing is very helpful in understanding SD card performance variance. Also, try the flashbench test olpc use http://wiki.laptop.org/go/SDCard_Testing
[21:55] <mkopack> Thought about getting it, but then I looked up a review that showed it to be pretty horrible performance wise, so didn't see the point in wasting the money
[21:56] <friggle> that test is making the assumption that you want at least 5AUs for decent linux performance, which may or may not be true. Certainly if it does well on that test it's a good card. If it does poorly, it's questionable
[21:56] <friggle> someone ran it on a selection of cards. 4KB writes are what we care about
[21:56] <friggle> Transcend 4GB (class 4) - 698K/s SanDisk 2GB (class 4) - 41K/s Transcend 8GB (class 10) - 40K/s Kingston 4GB (class 4) - 6K/s
[21:57] <friggle> we're liking the transcend 4GB class 4 - seem to be a bit of a sweet spot in terms of price/performance
[21:58] <mkopack> well, a this point I just needed a couple extra cards??? I have a Sony Class 4, and a pair of Patriot Class 6 (all 16GB) cards that I was planning to use, but then when I got the Pandaboard, I realized that I really need 2 for that (1 for a "good working" FS, and then another when I want to "try out" new OS images...)
[21:58] <ShiftPlusOne> so... how does the raspberrypi github thing work... can anyone outside of the foundation send anything upstream?
[21:59] <ReggieUK> mkopack, that seems to be the norm for any dev work that relies on SD, 1 for sunday best and one for arsing around with
[21:59] <friggle> ShiftPlusOne: make a pull request
[21:59] <DJWillis> ShiftPlusOne: I damm well hope that is how they plan to work, pull requests and they comment on the patches.
[21:59] <friggle> DJWillis: definitely. Some of the guys are a bit new to the git workflow though
[22:00] <ShiftPlusOne> some .pc files would surely be useful
[22:00] <ShiftPlusOne> for egl and glesv2 at least
[22:00] <DJWillis> friggle: awesome, yep, it takes some getting used to but it is quite the norm these days and there are very good guides. On that note, is there any chance of a formal mailing list for the board, pull requests, patches, upstream discussion etc.?
[22:00] <friggle> well that lots of packaging work in general. e.g. the broadcom libs should really be a .deb with a repository for updates
[22:01] <friggle> DJWillis: it's all a bit ad-hoc at the moment. We've got a mailing list here at the computer lab, Chris Tyler set up a mailing list for those with alpha boards that never got used much
[22:02] <cjbaird> git usage never sticks in my head.. Where I have to use it, I create shell-scripts like "update.sh" with the commands I can never remember...
[22:02] <DJWillis> friggle: yep, reminds me of another project dear to my heart ;)
[22:02] <cjbaird> comp.sys.raspberrypi :)
[22:02] <ReggieUK> tig can help with git
[22:02] <friggle> DJWillis: I agree it would be a good idea, though I'm not going to hassle for it right now. I'm not sure offhand who could host. I notice launchpad do normal mailman mailing lists
[22:03] <friggle> ReggieUK: I love tig :)

[22:03] <DJWillis> friggle: if I can't get by I may take you up on that.

[22:52] <ReggieUK> I'd export the lot of em as env vars
[22:52] <ReggieUK> scripted or w/e
[22:52] <friggle> I don't understand why you need -lGLESv2 in GLESv2_LIBS
[22:53] <ShiftPlusOne> friggle, why wouldn't I? O_o
[22:53] <friggle> is there not a generic autotools way of adding extra dirs to your include and lib path, which is all you need to do here?
[22:53] <friggle> ShiftPlusOne: I mean, that bit is expected. It's -L/opt/vc/lib which is the weird bit right?
[22:54] <ShiftPlusOne> probably, but I dont know it, so I am using the pkg-config way, which seems to be what most packages I've seen use.
[22:54] <friggle> and you probably need bcm_host
[22:55] <ShiftPlusOne> bcm_host, ey?
[22:55] <friggle> ah but you're just compiling a lib aren't you, so I suppose the host app would use it
[22:56] <ShiftPlusOne> the lib and host app both compile just fine in qemu linked against the files in /opt
[22:56] <ShiftPlusOne> the flags I posted there are actually for the host app
[22:56] <friggle> ShiftPlusOne: but you probably need to bcm_host_init()
[22:56] <friggle> https://github.com/raspberrypi/firmware/blob/master/opt/vc/src/hello_pi/hello_triangle/triangle.c
[22:57] <friggle> ShiftPlusOne: plus, how are you creating an EGL window?
[22:57] <ShiftPlusOne> sdl 1.2
[22:57] <friggle> ah, well SDL is going to need to know how to do that with broadcom dispmanx
[22:58] <ShiftPlusOne> hm =/
[22:58] <ShiftPlusOne> sounds like I should just wait till I get the board
[22:59] * neciO (~juan@241.155-246-81.adsl-dyn.isp.belgacom.be) Quit (Ping timeout: 260 seconds)
[22:59] <friggle> ShiftPlusOne: I strongly recommend you take a look at that triangle example. Any lib you use needs to do that to get an EGL window. Either modify the lib or get the window yourself
[23:00] <ShiftPlusOne> yeah, I've looked at the example
[23:03] * IT_Sean (~IT_Sean@applefritter/IRCStaff/UltimateMacUser1) Quit (Quit: off)
[23:04] <ShiftPlusOne> It all worked fine on a different board with gles 2.0 support. What's up with all this bcm_host_init(); stuff?
[23:04] <DJWillis> ShiftPlusOne: every GLes 'thing' still needs to setup the context on the hardware including SDL. Take a look at some of the OpenPandora EGL/SDL stuff for ideas and code to nick. Once you have the context (i.e. that example) you will be well away.
[23:05] <ShiftPlusOne> DJWillis, yeah, that's what the lib was... ES support for SDL 1.2
[23:05] <ShiftPlusOne> which was nicked from maemo

[23:10] * datagutt (~datagutt@unaffiliated/datagutt) Quit (Quit: Computer has gone to sleep.)
[23:10] <ShiftPlusOne> yup, that's exactly it
[23:10] <friggle> so egl_surface = eglCreateWindowSurface(egl_display, cur_context->egl_config, 295 (EGLNativeWindowType)info.info.x11.window, NULL);
[23:10] <friggle> that wouldn't work on the pi
[23:11] <friggle> you'd need to use the vc_dispmanx stuff to create an EGLNativeWindow to pass to eglCreateWindowSurface
[23:11] <ShiftPlusOne> so... is the EGL implementation likely to be improved and made a bit more standard?
[23:11] <friggle> EGL..standard? ;)
[23:12] <friggle> things could obviously be *way* better in terms of X integration, which is basically non-existent at the moment
[23:12] <Hexxeh> can anyone notice anything amiss in this strace? http://pastebin.com/9d8CFH1H

[23:20] <ShiftPlusOne> yup, that's the plan. I quite like the SDL_gles thing.... should make porting things a bit easier as well as allow for the same code to be compiled for x86 (with mesa's egl) and arm
[23:20] <friggle> what...the...hell. Just got a "bill coby at 83" fwd:fwd:fwd:fwd from someone I was at school with, but never even really spoke to anyway

[23:29] <Hexxeh> related to rtc possibly?
[23:29] <friggle> Hexxeh: nothing seemed obviously wrong to me...
[23:30] <friggle> friggle: can you get a backtrace at all?
[23:30] <Hexxeh> yeah, but i can't get a debug build to build, so it won't be much use
[23:30] <Hexxeh> sec

[23:31] <friggle> Hexxeh: :) not so useful
[23:32] <Hexxeh> i can't get a debug build of chromium built
[23:32] <Hexxeh> but my toolchain is a bit screwy

[23:34] <friggle> Hexxeh: by the way, my worry about v8 is in http://code.google.com/p/v8/source/browse/trunk/SConstruct
[23:34] <friggle> look at e.g. line 162 and line 171
[23:34] <friggle> vfp3 is on by default, so if you compile for softfp or hard you get CAN_USE_VFP_INSTRUCTIONS
[23:34] <friggle> but this should really be called CAN_USE_VFP3_INSTRUCTIONS (armv6 is vfp2)
[23:36] <Hexxeh> ah
[23:36] <Hexxeh> it's using that
[23:36] <Hexxeh> shouldn't the compile fail in that case though?
[23:36] <Hexxeh> since i'm using an armv6 toolchain?
[23:37] <friggle> Hexxeh: not if it's just jitted code. I'm not saying it's necessarily the problem you're facing now
[23:38] <Hexxeh> http://code.google.com/searchframe#OAMlx_jo-ck/src/v8/tools/gyp/v8.gyp&exact_package=chromium&q=enable_vfp3&type=cs&l=183
[23:38] <Hexxeh> looks like it gets disabled on non armv7 builds
[23:39] <friggle> Hexxeh: ah, great. the qt guys were having that problem as they were trying to bypass most of the v8 build system I think then
[23:39] <Hexxeh> also, chrome for android is the same codebase
[23:39] <Hexxeh> and that builds for armv6
[23:39] <Hexxeh> anything else i should check?
[23:39] <Hexxeh> i'm out of ideas at this point
[23:40] <friggle> what toolchain are you using?
[23:40] <Hexxeh> crossdev'd toolchain, armv6zk-hardfloat-linux-gnueabi
[23:40] <friggle> your whole system is hardfloat?
[23:41] <Hexxeh> yes
[23:41] <friggle> I wouldn't rule out compiler bugs. Chromium isn't a simple project and armv6+hardfloat isn't common
[23:41] <Matt> compilers are fun
[23:42] <Hexxeh> armv6zk-softfloat-linux-gnueabi then friggle?
[23:42] <friggle> might be a safer starting point
[23:42] <Hexxeh> alright then, i'll give it a shot
[23:42] <friggle> but then you'll have to rebuild all yoru other libs
[23:42] <Hexxeh> yeah
[23:43] <Hexxeh> only takes a couple hours
[23:43] <friggle> there may be another obvious step to take to debug...nothing comes to mind right now though
[23:44] <friggle> and it does rather suck you can't get a debug build working
[23:44] <friggle> compiler issues did you say?
[23:44] <Hexxeh> yeah, fails linking
[23:44] <Hexxeh> i don't have the failure to hand
[23:47] <DJWillis> Just about to try Gnome 2 for the hell of it with a fair bit of zram and other things setup to try and get that little bit more out of things ;). No way to make it usable in 256MB but I am interested in seeing what it runs like with xFBDEV and no tweaks when compaired to an ARMv7 OpenPandora also using xFBDEV
[23:53] <markus> DJWillis: do you have a raspberry pi?
[23:53] <DJWillis> markus: a few devs have early retail units now for hacking on.
[23:54] <hamitron> would it be rude to get an Apple screen, and call it "My Apple and Raspberry Pi"?
[23:54] <hamitron> ;/
[23:54] <DJWillis> markus: and to answer that mroe clearly, yep.
[23:55] <markus> =) nice

[23:57] <hamitron> hehe
[23:57] <DJWillis> friggle: that is really good news.
[23:57] <Hexxeh> it looks pretty good on a 120" screen here :P
[23:57] <hamitron> "can this fly walk across the screen faster"
[23:57] <Hexxeh> other than the really slow redraws
[23:58] <friggle> DJWillis: do you mean high res? I don't think we support > 1920x1200
[23:59] <DJWillis> friggle: well that would be 1920*1080 but with the current x setup that is going to take some work to keep the updates coming.
[23:59] <DJWillis> friggle: I do plan on messing with some screens at work in the 25**by**** type setup.
[23:59] <hamitron> can you use a command line on the tv without X?
