Aylakyak: hi00:34
qi-bot[commit] Ayla: The links will now be loaded from both the system and the user-specific directories. (install_locations) http://qi-hw.com/p/gmenu2x/f7817b100:51
Aylakyak: gmenu2x/install_locations is IMHO ready for a merge00:52
kristianpaulI was wrong all this time!, was bad desition trying to implement namuru from the tracking modules, as this carry a bit amount of work and trouble because of the clock domain sync of the control and status registers wich can be up to 256 registers...10:57
kristianpaulA better aproucc will be to bridge the avalon-like bus of namuru wih the milkymist wishbone, and that bridge include clocks of course.. is a better path i think, because handshake is already there just missing clock sycking...10:58
kristianpaulhehe http://mimiandeunice.com/2011/07/11/trademarked-spirituality/11:08
kristianpaulcya later11:08
wolfspraulkristianpaul: I wish I could follow your work in code, I would really like to learn that stuff... maybe one day.11:32
Aylakyak: hi?11:37
kristianpaulwolfspraul: modeling hardware is interesting task, hardware puts interesting challenges like metastability :-)13:55
kristianpauldigital hardware*13:55
kristianpaulbut i think you already know how interesting and unique hardware is ;)13:56
kristianpaulthats why mm1 have a single clock and uses in some stuff like ethernet,USB  a dual-ported memory as FIFO, to keep the beast apart :)13:59
kristianpauli guess,of course :)13:59
wpwrakkristianpaul: in german, there's a saying "many opponents, much honor". so you should try to maximize the number of clocks and gain eternal fame ;-)14:58
kyakAyla: hey15:48
Aylaif fixed the sections issue in gmenu2x, so I believe the "install_locations" branch can now be merged15:49
kyakAyla: maybe you just merge it, then we adapt the openwrt Makefile and see if there are not problems?15:56
kyakthe openwrt Makefile is actually ready since the last time we tested it..16:03
Aylakyak, ok16:11

Aylakyak: allright, everything is in master16:20
kyakAyla: great, i'll give it a try :)16:44
kristianpaulIs this forked gmenu2x load faster thena before?16:49
kristianpauli mean , time load atsystem  startup16:50
kristianpaulload time*16:50
Aylano idea16:50
qi-bot[commit] kyak: gmenu2x: update to the latest git (master) http://qi-hw.com/p/openwrt-packages/603854816:53
kyakAyla: --^ thanks!16:53
Aylait works fine? :)16:55
kyakyeah, very fine!16:55
kyakpulls the icons from /usr/share/gmenu2x16:55
kyaksave settings in ~/.gmenu2x16:55
Aylawhat you may want to change is the nanonote's default config, it sets the screen bpp to 32, I believe that it should be 16 bpp instead16:56
kyaknope, it's 32bpp16:56
kyaki mean, Ben's screen does does 32bpp16:57
kyak*does support16:57
kyakbb later16:58
mthkristianpaul: I reduced the number of libraries gmenu2x uses, so that might decrease the startup time17:03
mthI'm not sure by how much, since libraries are paged in only when they're actually used17:03
DocScrutinizerroh: ping19:33
wpwraklekernel: still needs the synthesis part :)19:42
DocScrutinizerstupid bot20:22
qi-botThe build was successfull, see images here: http://fidelio.qi-hardware.com/~xiangfu/compile-log/openwrt-xburst.full_system-07102011-1718/20:58
rohre DocScrutinizer 21:24
DocScrutinizerhi roh 21:24
DocScrutinizerimsp.om.org down21:25
DocScrutinizerimap even21:25
DocScrutinizeralso the munin frontend or where i looked for it21:26
Action: DocScrutinizer wonders how any screen may support 32bpp23:37
wpwrakDocScrutinizer: step 1: decide which bits you don't need ...23:38
DocScrutinizerhmm, iirc *studio* norm for RGB digital is 10bit per color channel23:40
DocScrutinizerLCDs usually can not even do 8bit per channel23:41
DocScrutinizerit's more like 5/6/5 usually23:41
DocScrutinizeror 5/5/523:42
wpwrakbah, 1/1/1+1 is plenty :) ubb-vga forever ;-)23:49
