wpwrakpoor hamster :)00:29
DocScrutinizer05well, the world is strange either way. Even hansters need to cope with it I guess00:52
DocScrutinizer05I just walked the dead streets of 2AM of my small town, a guy walked 20m in front of me. We approached a crossing.00:53
DocScrutinizer05he went while red light, stopped inmidst the crossing street, turned around to me and looked up a bit, slapped his own face, turned another 180° and walked on. The whole thing took less than 1s00:55
DocScrutinizer05while I wondered, puzzled what this been now, I realized that in my direction from him, it's east and thus the direction of Mecca here where I live. Made me shudder00:56
wpwrakah well, in winter you have to drink a lot to stay warm :)01:02
DocScrutinizer05I kinda doubt this guy considered drinking compatible with his belief01:15
DocScrutinizer05Or do you suggest I been drunk so I seen delusional weird stuff?01:15
DocScrutinizer05(honestly, I wish I was, exactly for the friggin wet cold outside)01:16
DocScrutinizer05No comments about Argentinian BBQ please!!01:17
wpwraknaw, today it's pretty cool around here. a bit disappointing because it looked as if there's be a major thunderstorm coming. but then the temperature just dropped some 15 C without a show.01:19
DocScrutinizer05that's indeed... lame01:20
DocScrutinizer05on another unrelated sidenote: this new intel SSD in my new PC is awesome: >500MB/s sustainable write speed01:22
DocScrutinizer05and nah, it's not the CPU's bottleneck, a dd if=zero of=null blasts away with 25GB/s01:23
wpwraknice. now you can download a DVD in less than 10 seconds. perhaps if you RAID several SSDs together, you can improve on that a bit.01:24
DocScrutinizer05it's also not buffers, since the file I wrote been 25GB in size, and there been no sync delay after dd finished01:24
wpwraki hope the data was properly randomized :)01:25
DocScrutinizer05download won't help until I get my FDDI, but cloning a 8GB KVM diskimage takes ~10s01:25
wpwrakdoes FDDI still exist ? i though it died at least ten years ago of old age01:26
DocScrutinizer05the guys with the fat optical undersea cables work elsewhere01:27
wpwrakthat kind of cable probably does SONET. nowadays probably in the 10th bastardized generation01:29
wejhello, i released a new version of Gmu (actually two, but this is the latest version): http://wejp.k.vu/gmu/gmu_0_9_1_released09:30
kyakvery nice!10:12
kyakwait a second, gmu has ncurses interface?10:12
kyaki never knew10:12
wejkyak, it is new :)10:13
kyakwej: i'm looking forward to giving it a try :) do you know if you handle UTF-8 correctly in ncurses?10:15
wejkyak, i think i do. at least all stuff with non-ascii charactert i have tested with it, looked correct10:16
wejumlauts and cyrillic characters show up correctly10:17
kyakwej: thanks :)10:17
kyakwej: gmuc throws a bunch of error: 'WACS_VLINE' undeclared (first use in this function) during compilation10:54
kyaktrying to investigate..10:54
wejncurses needs to be compiled with wide character support10:54
kyaksure, that's the case here10:54
wejthen WACS_VLINE should be defined10:55
wejit is part of ncurses10:55
kyakperhaps it uses headers from regular ncurses10:56
wejmaybe, although on my system i have just one ncurses.h, which works for both, the old ncurses and ncurses with wide char support10:57
kyakso we have /usr/include/curses.h and /usr/include/ncursesw/curses.h10:57
kyakyou include the first one :)10:58
wejnot sure how this was handled in older versions of ncurses, but at least it works that way with the current 5.9 ncurses10:58
kyakyou are using arch linux, aren't you?10:58
wejyes, the seconds one should be included by the first10:58
wejone should not need to includde it manually10:58
wejyes, i'm building on arch10:58
kyakok, lemme check how it works...10:58
wejbut i have also cross-compiled things with ncurses and compiled ncurses myself there, it was the same thing10:59
wejkyak, you could try to add /usr/include/ncursesw/ to your include path, so it gets parsed first. it looks like sometimes this is needed11:06
kyakthis is exactly what i did :)11:06
wejok :)11:06
kyakit builds fine now, now polishing the installation...11:06
wejnice :)11:07
kyakit's done.. haven't tested it on nanonote though11:14
kyaki'm just gonna commit anyway :)11:14
qi-bot[commit] kyak: gmu: update to 0.9.1 (master) http://qi-hw.com/p/openwrt-packages/b731d3411:15
kyakwej: there are still two patches, i think we could easily get rid of 001-mpg123.patch, if you adopt the change (MORE_DECODERS to conditionally build mpg123)11:16
wejkyak, you are right. i'll include that MORE_DECODERS conditional in the next update11:55
wejalso, i will include the new gmuhttp.so frontend int the FRONTENDS_TO_BUILD list by default, which is needed for the ncurses interface11:57
kyakwej: thanks!12:05
