kristianpaulgreat mail from delbert franz :), very patience to do all those benchmarks18:25
virickristianpaul: I use reiserfs though19:15
Action: kristianpaul havent bother yet about fs19:17
viriclucky you19:39
viricthis means you have not had troubles19:39
kristianpaulnot yet.. ?19:40
kristianpauli run my debian with lvm encrypted something and the servers ext2/3/419:42
kristianpaulof course i know the pain (from others) that is lost a disk "meta data index", if you mean that troubles :-)19:42
viricI've always lost files with ext*19:43
kristianpaulmay be i dint realized that yet ;)19:44
AylareiserFS is safer?19:56
kristianpauli wonder if my life is :)19:57
kristianpaulactually i tought viric meant reiserFS in the nanonote? :)19:57
kristianpaul(wondering if posible, or usefull?)19:58
Aylathe nanonote use UBIFS I believe19:58
Aylauses*20:03
lars_possible yes, useful no20:08
lars_(reiserfs on the nanonote)20:08
viricI use it on sd cards20:25
viricbut not in the nanonote. In fact I don't use any sd card in the nanonote21:00
mthlars_: did you see the jz-3.1 branch?21:11
mthI'm wondering if we could send some of the patches upstream to decrease the delta21:11
lars_mth: i'm all for it21:14
mthshall I paste the summaries here or put it in a mail?21:15
lars_mail21:16
mthanyone to Cc:?21:16
lars_the mailinglists21:17
mthqi or kernel mailinglists?21:17
mthI want to discuss first what to send upstream21:17
mthbecause I don't know which patches are good enough and which need more work21:17
viricqi would be nice21:17
mthjz47xx-kernel then?21:19
lars_yes21:19
AylaI do have a patch too :p21:24
mthyes, but it's a bit early to send that one upstream21:25
AylaI'm speaking about the patch on fbcon21:27
mththe patch to disable fbcon binding at boot?21:29
Aylayes21:29
mththat one is not in the repository yet, I think21:30
Aylayes21:30
AylaIIRC you didn't like that it uses strsep()21:30
AylaI didn't take the time to fix it properly21:31
mthI don't remember if I didn't like it's use of strsep() or whether it was just a generic dislike of strsep() itself21:33
mth*its21:33
Aylawell I'm not familiar with strsep(), I don't really know how good/bad it is21:34
AylaI'm more familiar with strtok()21:34
AylaI won't have time to do this before the week-end21:37
Aylaany thoughts about dropping support for gp2x on gmenu2x?21:39
mthI mainly want to avoid having to cherry pick all patches again on 3.2, so if a few can be integrated it would help ease long term maintenance21:40
mthwe don't have to submit everything right now21:40
mthI think we should only support platforms that people are actually using our branch on21:41
mthso either get a builder/tester for GP2X or remove the code, imo21:41
mthbecause untested equals broken in practice21:41
AylaI think the GP2X users do use the mainstream gmenu2x21:42
AylaI'd like to trash the touchscreen code too22:03
Aylaand eventually replace it with some code which uses the SDL mouse instead22:04
qi-botThe build was successfull, see images here: http://fidelio.qi-hardware.com/~xiangfu/compile-log/openwrt-xburst.full_system-11012011-1701/22:50
mthwow, there were more patches than I remembered22:53
mthlars_: the mail should be in your mailbox now22:53
mthI assume you're subscribed to the list, I only sent it to the list22:53
