kristianpaulha, so linux for cars is just about playing songs and get the child to fun no more..01:49
kristianpaultought automotive grade linux sound like something more serious to me01:50
Action: pabs3 notes there are already folks working on the RPi GPU: https://github.com/hermanhermitage/videocoreiv02:24
whitequarkpabs3: VPU.04:31
whitequarkAFAIK, RPi includes both GPU [graphics] and VPU [video]04:31
pabs3ah ok04:31
whitequarkat least I don't see anything alike to the 3D pipeline in the ISA of the VPU 04:32
lekernelwpwrak: there is already http://papilio.cc/10:56
lekernelalso quite unpopular, not sure which of M1 or papillio is worse...10:59
whitequarkha, nice11:06
whitequarknice small spartan-3e devboard11:06
kristianpaulthre is also xula2 but the soldering is not very friendly http://xess.com/prods/prod055.php but is spartan612:19
whitequarkkristianpaul: erm, what's so unfriendly there?12:54
whitequarkusual .1" spacing12:54
wpwraklekernel: hmm, it may just lack the tidiness factor. arduino has that - it's compact.13:59
wpwrakxula2 on the other hand has that14:00
wpwrakthe only thing xula2 seems to get wrong is the proprietary EDA suite (eagle). and the price jump from USD 55 to USD 119 is a bit large.14:03
kristianpaulyeah i dint liked that price jump either..14:33
lekernelwell, maybe they were planning to sell more at that price14:53
