whitequark(importing stuff) do they *actually* check it?05:56
wpwrakwhitequark: yes, they do. they open every parcel and check.09:51
whitequarkthat's some dedication to the job.09:55
whitequarkI think that every single parcel I have received was marked incorrectly (lower cost, bullshitty description) and no one bothered.09:56
wpwraki think they're mainly looking for drugs and such. but of course, they'll notice other anomalies as well.11:13
larscpcercuei: I want to send your two jz4740 mmc patches upstream, can I add your Signed-off-by?14:39
pcercueilarsc: of course15:16
pcercueiwhich ones?15:16
larsc"mmc: JZ4740: Remove duplicated code." and "mmc: JZ4740: Fix handling of read errors."15:23
pcercueiheh, I didn't even remember those15:31
larscone year old15:39
apeletefinally soldered the 3-wires serial output on the NN, but I don't get any output in minicom17:05
apeleteusing this adapter: http://www.ebay.fr/itm/6pin-FTDI-FT232RL-USB-to-TTL-Serial-cable-5V-Converter-Adapter-f-Arduino-CTS-RTS-/181137385708?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2a2ca128ec17:06
apelete(only using the GND, TXD and RXD wires on it though)17:06
apeleteand my kernel comand line is:17:07
apeleteKernel command line: mem=32M console=tty0 console=ttyS0,57600n8 rootfstype=ext2 root=/dev/mmcblk0p1 rw rootwait17:07
larscdoes it work?17:08
apeleteminicom configuration: Baud rate is 57600, 8n1, no hardware or software flow control.17:08
larscshould work, but the nanonote is 3.3V17:09
apeletelarsc: the NN is booting just fine, but no serial output 17:09
larschave you tried switching rx and tx?17:09
apeleteit works ! \o/17:12
apeletelarsc: thanks!17:12
larscthe labeling is often confusing17:13
larscsome label it as you need to connect your tx pin to this pin17:13
larscand some label it as this is the tx pin of the serial converter17:14
apeletelarsc: yes, I connected RX label to RX pin of the converter, but it was the other way around17:15
DocScrutinizer05nah, engineers always put the label on it that names the function of what's inside21:51
DocScrutinizer05or a clear pictogram that unambiguously shows *what to do*, like   rx--->|TX21:52
DocScrutinizer05usually it's a bit cumbersome to write what shall get plugged in here, as usually there are several options what to plug in, like headphones, amp, speakers, mixer....21:55
Action: DocScrutinizer05 wonders what else than "230V ~" to write on a mains outlet for example. "hairdryer"? "appliances"?22:00
