DocScrutinizer05HARDCODED, EH?!?13:17
DocScrutinizer05MORONS13:17
DocScrutinizer05~systemd13:18
infobot_systemd cabal: a bunch of people (Lennart Poettering, Kay Sievers, Harald Hoyer, Daniel Mack, Tom Gundersen, David Herrmann) who want to turn linux into their wet dream perverted version of windows-me-too: http://0pointer.net/blog/revisiting-how-we-put-together-linux-systems.html -- Rumor has it that 2016 systemd will have replaced kernel, or see https://devuan.org  http://without-systemd.org/wiki/index.php/Arguments_against_systemd13:18
DocScrutinizer05I really don't get it how much idiocy seems to accumulate around and inside systemd*13:29
Action: eintopf likes systemd13:56
larscit's the best thing since sliced bread14:22
eintopftoastbread14:47
kyak"shouldn't postfix also be configured by14:51
kyakdefault to relay mail via GMail?"14:51
kyakliked that :)14:51
wpwrakit's the best thing since bread falling buttered side down15:14
virickyak: well, the old word 'mail' could be renamed to the more modern 'gmail'.15:34
larscand log messages are saved in your facebook feed by default15:35
DocScrutinizer05ssssshhh! Poettering might hear you!16:06
DocScrutinizer05actually I already wondered if systemd supports port 513 err 512 err ?16:07
DocScrutinizer05so once they notice they might need remote logging, they actually may come up with crap similar to that FB idea16:08
paul_boddieMaybe systemd will log output directly to Stack Overflow as questions.18:13
paul_boddieI managed to run the current Linux kernel on the NanoNote, by the way.18:17
paul_boddieThe jz4740 just seemed to work, although I suspect that the backlight handling stuff is absent.18:18
paul_boddieThe screen goes white when suspended, which I seem to remember reading about on the list at one point.18:20

larscpaul_boddie: the driver for the panel is not upstream19:35
larscthese are the patches you want on top of upstream https://dev.openwrt.org/browser/trunk/target/linux/xburst/patches-3.1819:36
paul_boddielarsc: Thanks! I see your name all over the jz4740 stuff. :-)20:21
paul_boddieI'm actually comparing some jz4730 Ingenic stuff with the jz4740 code at the moment and trying to figure some of it out.20:21
paul_boddieI found that with the plain kernel sources, "make uImage" doesn't produce a usable image, and I have to set the load address myself with mkimage.20:38
paul_boddieThe 0xffffffff80010000 address gets converted to 0xffffffff by some kernel script magic.20:39
pcercueiyeah20:41
pcercueiI remember that20:41
pcercueihttps://github.com/gcwnow/linux/blob/jz-3.19/arch/mips/jz4770/Platform#L320:42
pcercueithe fix is not upstream20:43
paul_boddieWhen I changed the address in the Platform file, "make uImage" refused to do anything. So there's some target-creating magic as well.20:43
paul_boddieAnd when I commented out the test for addresses less than 0xffffffff80000000 so that the uImage target is provided, it still didn't call mkimage correctly.20:44
paul_boddieI guess you guys would have an opinion on whether jz4730 would fit within jz4740 or not. It's difficult to tell from the datasheets how different the various registers and pins are.20:53
Action: paul_boddie tries the kernel on the Ben21:37
paul_boddieI've built the ili8960 driver, but still get the white screen of suspension. And the keymap doesn't seem right: no fn combinations for the numerals.21:38
paul_boddieI guess I'll take a look at this later. Maybe I did something wrong.22:30
