Fallenouxiangfu: thanks for your email :)08:46
xiangfuFallenou, I will try to write some code in Makefile. apply that patch automatic. :)09:01
Fallenougreat :)09:05
Fallenouxiangfu: I noticed that freetype2 download fails09:05
FallenouI had to download it manually inside /dl/ and touch freetype2****.ok09:05
Fallenoumaybe a dead link or something09:05
Fallenousourceforge sucks for direct links ...09:05
xiangfuFallenou, I will try to fix that.09:09
Fallenougood luck, maybe hosting the file on QI webserver would help ...09:10
Fallenouxiangfu: could you also update the autotool version needed by RTEMS in the readme.html ?09:12
xiangfuFallenou, ok. I will do that later today.09:12
FallenouUbuntu 12.04 provides autotools 2.68, but now RTEMS needs 2.6909:12
Fallenouan endless race between bleeding edge RTEMS and bleeding edge Ubuntu :p09:13

Fallenouhave a nice diner !09:51
Fallenougood evening (morning here :p)09:51
lekernelhttp://www.maximintegrated.com/app-notes/index.mvp/id/3222 didn't know someone actually did it... thought it was only a research thing14:58
wpwrakyou mean analog and digital mixed ? that's been done a very long time ago already. check out the cypress psoc chips. (series 1 ... from 2002)15:03
lekernelno, "single instruction" CPU15:08
lekernelI'm looking for a good name for a simple "python-to-HDL" compiler15:19
lekernelsomething that takes functions written in a subset of python, and generates ALU + IO + FSM15:20
wpwraka "marketing" name or a descriptive term ?15:25
lekernela relatively descriptive term that doesn't sound too bad would be best15:27
lekernelpython to migen compiler15:31
wpwrak(single-instruction) the return of the accumulator ... well, unpipelined cpus aren't new. don't remember any architecture that specifically drops everything to one cycle, though. but then, maybe they just cheat and have special sequences for memory accesses. these could then work just like a pipeline.15:34
wpwrakpymig ? drop the compiler15:35
lekernelI like the fact that it sounds like "mimic"15:38
wpwrakno good words with mig*. if mignonette was a proper tree, you could put a snake around it, but it's a bit too tiny for a mighty python15:46
wpwrakmigpy ... close to "magpie". some of them look cute.15:48
wpwrak(mimic) but it's a compiler, not an interpreter :) "mig" from "migration" may be a better fit15:49
wpwrakyou could also try to use the "petrified snake" angle. you start with a snake (python) and end up with something "hard".15:54
wpwrakalas, petrified snakes don't seem to be common enough for them to have their own word15:54
wpwrakpytholite ? similar to pyrolite, but about pythons, not fire16:03
wpwrakalso seems to be a brand name for lamps16:05
wpwraklamps used for growing cannabis :) (well, among others uses, i'm sure)16:06
lekernelI like it16:10
lekernelthanks wpwrak17:19
