uncloudedis there a way to tell the OpenWRT image builder to build only the kernel?06:20
kyakmake target/kernel/compile06:21
kyaksomething like this06:21
uncloudedit says "No rule to make target `target/kernel/compile'.  Stop."06:24
kyakmake target/linux/compile06:25
uncloudedthanks, that works although it doesn't seem to rebuild bin/xburst/...uImage.bin06:32
kyakah, i got you wrong06:34
uncloudedprobably rather I didn't explain myself very well06:37
kyakmake target/linux/install06:47
kyakit is to make the image out of your compiled kernel06:47
uncloudedkyak: thanks, that's just what I wanted07:15
Ornotermeswhat do you people think of a smaller kernel logo and a smaller banner? http://gallery.slashhome.se/main.php?g2_itemId=269207:23
wejpboth a smaller logo and a smaller default font would be nice07:28
wejpthe current font is just way to large07:28
Ornotermessure, but i think it gets kind of hard to read pretty fast07:32
wejpmaybe if the font is too small, but it does not need to be that large07:33
wejpwith this font one cannot use the terminal for most stuff07:33
uncloudedI'm using a 5x10 font and it's awful to look at but having a 64x24 terminal makes it worth it ( just)07:40
Ornotermesunclouded: do you have a screendump of it?07:43
kyakhttp://downloads.qi-hardware.com/people/kyak/tmp/utf-8.png07:46
freespacedo you have a copy of the font file :)07:46
kyaki think all fonts smaller than 10 are useless07:46
kyakwell, they hurt my eyes07:47
uncloudedhttp://amadeus.dist.ro/setfont/screen-dump.png07:47
uncloudedof course it looks even worse on the device itself07:47
kyakit looks pretty well on a dump because pixels are aligned07:48
kyakif the LCD remains the same for Ya, it is all useless07:49
Ornotermeskyak: how did you get the right colors in you terminal?07:53
kyakOrnotermes: i didn't do anything for the colors, they just were :) it's fbterm07:54
Ornotermesah07:54
Ornotermesi use the console and the colors are all wrong :/07:56
kyaktry playing with LS_COLORS env variable07:57
nebajothhello08:02
Ornotermeskyak: it's not only for ls, it's all text colors -> http://gallery.slashhome.se/main.php?g2_itemId=267708:11
kristianpaulgbraad: if you know people with a ben and a gps we need help/test about this http://en.qi-hardware.com/wiki/GPS11:16
gbraadI saw the message on Identi.ca11:24
gbraadI will keep the beat going for this11:24
gbraadSo tomorrow I will post another message and ask around11:25
gbraadwolfspraul today spoke that Chinese hardware engineer.  really a great guy. he does low-level stuff in FPGA and for ARM.11:26
gbraadabout that last I talked with him and explaiend ewhat Qi Hardeware's goal is11:26
Action: gbraad apologies for the typos11:26
gbraadhe was very interested as on the USRP (SDR) and hardware we agreed a lot11:27
gbraadhe wanted to do an open platform/versatile platform for SDR development11:28
gbraadwouldbe a good idea to share ideas and see if he can contribute to milkymist and Qi11:28
gbraadhave to be off now. will get in touch with you soon11:29
kristianpaulSDr11:32
kristianpaulops11:32
kristianpaulSDR devel board will be :O11:33
kristianpaulmore if is floss documented11:33
gbraadkristianpaul: very well aware of this. creating a hardware design is 'easy', but make it usable is hard ;-)11:35
Action: gbraad now really away11:35
kristianpaulbye11:35
kristianpaulwow NEMA is fater13:56
kristianpaulfaster*13:56
wolfspraulNEMA?13:59
kristianpaulprtocol for gps14:00
kristianpauli discover my gps have two serial ports14:00
kristianpaulone uses SiRF (gave me lots of problems with gpsd)14:00
kristianpaulother uses NEMA wich seems gpsd work faster14:01
kristianpauli'm on testing on copmuter now but i'll move nano now..14:01
kristianpaulrafa: ping as soon you avaliable please14:13
kristianpaul:D14:20
kristianpaulgps working on nanonote !14:20
wolfspraulkristianpaul: congrats!14:35
arctanxkristianpaul: I think you mean "NMEA", btw14:40
arctanxalso, awesome14:41
kristianpaulohh yes sorry14:44
kristianpaulit happens all time (swiching characters in words)14:45
arctanxno problem. I don't make a habit of correcting spelling, but that one might be confusing :)14:50
kristianpaulyeah i know14:53
kristianpaulNEMA is somethign else14:53
kristianpaulahh14:53
kristianpaulis my stepper motor type for reprap xD14:53
kristianpaulthats why i confused14:53
kristianpaularctanx: http://en.qi-hardware.com/wiki/GPS pics and more info14:54
rafakristianpaul: I willl read if you write15:21
rafaI have short internet access15:21
rafa(traveling)15:21
rafakristianpaul: gps : great man!"15:21
rafakristianpaul: congratulations!! great job man15:21
kristianpaulrafa: i need recompile gpsd with the parameters that are in http://en.qi-hardware.com/wiki/GPS#To_do15:42
Ornotermes6x11 font looks quite good. http://gallery.slashhome.se/main.php?g2_itemId=269616:09
kristianpaulOrnotermes: yup16:37
ezdagorAnyone know where the ks7010 kernel patch is? It isn't included in the newest jz-2.6.34 kernel source..17:44
larscezdagor: http://projects.qi-hardware.com/index.php/p/openwrt-xburst/source/tree/xburst/package/ks701017:47
ezdagorThanks, man.17:49
kristianpaulverdad19:10
kristianpaulos19:10
kristianpaulops19:10
kristianpaulwaa gpsd in openwrt is really fast !19:48
kristianpaulnow compile nanomap, or binaries around?19:48
kristianpaulok compiling now19:52
kristianpaulahh no19:57
kristianpaulomg ther eis no makefilwe !!19:57
kristianpauldamm19:57
kristianpaulany one can help compile nanomap?20:00
kristianpaulok got a binari20:17
kristianpaulbut is outdated20:17
kristianpauli need gps supprot20:17
Ornotermeswell, i found the escape codes to edit the console palette but it doesn't seems to treat the data right20:41
sid-userhmmm... i am drunken but i think you do not mind the question: are you only hardware and kernel hackers?21:10
sid-userhad problems to build a running gentoo into nn21:11
kristianpaulwhere i should point QMAKESPEC for crosscompiling qt stuff?21:44
kristianpaulxiangfu: help22:18
kristianpauldo you know how compile nanomap?22:18
xiangfukristianpaul: hi22:18
kristianpaulxiangfu: hello :)22:19
kristianpauli'm doing QMAKESPEC ='../../openwrt-xburst/staging_dir/target-mipsel_uClibc-0.9.30.1/usr/share/mkspecs/qws/linux-mips-g++'22:20
kristianpaulbut got make: mips-linux-g++: No se encontró el programa (not found)22:20
xiangfukristianpaul: I am not look into it. but it's in my TODO list.22:22
kristianpaulok22:23
kristianpaul..22:23
xiangfuwhy is ".../usr/share/mkspecs/qws/linux-mips-g++" not "...usr/bin/openwrt-linux-g++" ?22:23
kristianpaulahhh22:24
kristianpaulhehe22:24
kristianpauli tought was mips22:24
kristianpauli'll change22:24
xiangfuoh.22:25
kristianpaulxiangfu: but i dont have nothing called openwrt-linux-g++22:27
kristianpaulis normal?22:27
xiangfukristianpaul: oh. sorry . it's mipsel-openwrt-linux-g++22:28
kristianpaulahh22:28
kristianpaul;)22:28
kristianpaullets see22:28
kristianpaulFailure to read QMAKESPEC conf file /srv/data/Desktop/copyleft_hardware/openwrt-xburst/staging_dir/toolchain-mipsel_gcc-4.3.3+cs_uClibc-0.9.30.1/usr/bin/mipsel-openwrt-linux-g++/qmake.conf.22:32
sid-userhow do you get direct the compilers? i am spoiled by ~crossdev22:35
sid-usere.g.  mipsel-softfloat-linux-gnu-gcc22:35
kristianpaulwell i'm done here, i'l read some MM docs22:36
xiangfukristianpaul: Hi /openwrt-xburst/feeds/packages/Xorg/lib/qt4/Makefile can be a reference , line 17322:37
kristianpauljust pending having nanomap working to have a better gps experience in the nano22:37
kristianpauloh i'll see22:37
kristianpaulxiangfu: http://paste.debian.net/80193/22:42
kristianpaulbetter wait nanomap devel reply at mail list22:43
kristianpaulwow gpsd plus tangogps work in less than 10 seconds !22:43
kristianpaul:D22:43
kristianpauljlime**22:43
kristianpaulrafa: :)22:43
kristianpaulrafa: no need for gpsd tweak, i tweak the wires now all work better (no human errors)22:44
xiangfukristianpaul: good job about the GPS. great.22:46
kristianpaul:)22:46
kristianpaulfinally i did something :p22:47
kristianpaulfocus is good22:47
kristianpaulwell i'll read22:47
kristianpaulgn822:47
xiangfukristianpaul: good night.22:49
xiangfusid-user: hi.  the compilers is in openwrt.22:52

}
gbraadsorry for not contacting you, but have been very busy last week23:05
gbraadwe are still very busy to get the build/compile infrastructure done for fedora mips on our servers (getting ready for mass rebuild of F13)23:07
xiangfugbraad: hi23:11
xiangfugbraad: sound good. :) take your time.23:17
