arossDOTmewell it's bed time again. Any reply's will get read from the logs.00:26
arossDOTmeI gave an incorrect amount of how much I copied. It was more like 25GB.02:26
xiangfuwpwrak, a new version of fped uploaded to Debian: http://packages.debian.org/unstable/electronics/fped. Version: 0.1+201210-103:47
wpwrakxiangfu: so you got through the bureaucracy ? congratulations ! :)07:34
lindi-xiangfu: every month we have a free software meetup here in Helsinki. Yesterday was the third time that we spent browsing fpgatools source. There are quite a free FPGA fans here :)08:33
lindi-xiangfu: do you know if Wolfgang is on IRC btw?08:34
wolfspra1lI'm here, and luckily just now reading :-)08:34
lindi-wolfspra1l: ok :)08:34
wolfspra1ltaking a break from wires :-)08:34
wolfspra1lckpin, clkindirect, clkfeedback...08:34
lindi-people were wondering if it'd be possible to have a more declarative approach instead of all that C code but I guess it's hard to make abstractions when you are reverse engineering and don't know the complete picture in advance08:35
wolfspra1lyes, I'm learning08:35
wolfspra1land sure, I would like to make the code shorter, first08:36
wolfspra1land once the structure becomes more clear, then bring in a little bison etc.08:36
wolfspra1lwhat are you guys following, and most likely - what would you like to do with an fpga?08:39
xiangfuwpwrak, (bureaucracy) not finish yet. there are "fpgatools-right" missing. :-)08:39
wolfspra1lbbiab. in general, please always feel free to ping me in this channel when you have any questions08:41
xiangfulindi-, you are already chatting. :-) 08:43
xiangfulindi-, is there any open-design from those free FPGA fans. you know like `azonenberg-devboards`. using KiCAD  etc?  (http://azonenberg-devboards.googlecode.com/)08:44
lindi-xiangfu: no idea08:44
xiangfulindi-, ok. I am trying to look into more open-design boards(kicad, fpga chips) for learning.08:46
lindi-xiangfu: I'm personally way too busy to look at those but I fortunately have time to organize a meeting every month :)08:47

kristianpauli like this board, have a pic32 :)20:24
arossDOTmeCan I have a separate partition on my sd card for the OS? I want to try the new image by booting it of my sd card. Do I hope a second partition won't have negative affects on my sd card (see logs for my prev gpt partition table sd card problem.)?23:51
