<TRS-80> So far just playing tutorial, but it looks great (esp for a Free (as in Freedom) game!

<lanefu> OMG thats infuriating
<IgorPec> lanefu: i removed teres and pinebook images and replace them with the one from my testing branch. they at least boots :)
<IgorPec> FYI
<ashthespy> Fancy
<ashthespy> oops - hit enter too soon..
<ashthespy> Fancy notifications about image verified led me believing it :P
<ashthespy> Hey IgorPec - since you are here -- what is better - merge in master or rebase on master for a PR?
drobo_00 has joined #armbian
skiboy has joined #armbian
<IgorPec> ashtespy: rebase is not mandatory
<ashthespy> Okay!
<ashthespy> ^ done
<IgorPec> let me check ...
<IgorPec> this should be merged by piter since he is closest to this code
<IgorPec> aha, but this is anyway a dev branch, right
<ashthespy> its a bit of a mess actually..
<IgorPec> why? have you test building wireless driver for some older kernels too?
<IgorPec> DEV stuff is always messy :)
<ashthespy> I added two branches towards the bigger goal of running directly off mainline + patches..
<ashthespy> So dev points to my repo with all the wip1 wip2 etc commits :P
<lanefu> IgorPec: okay cool.... do we want to cherry pick the fixes into the rc1 branch, or are you still working on it
<IgorPec> lanefu: not yet, i have to wait for some testings. my device seems to be broken
<ashthespy> and current points to mainline, with patches - although I haven't converted all my commits into patches yet..
<IgorPec> ashtespy: this is just fine. for now.
<ashthespy> about the wireless drivers - the legacy branch bakes in the driver using rkwifibt IIRC
<ashthespy> Okay! - my first time playing with linux --- soo!
<IgorPec> but wireless works on both, right?
<IgorPec> just not BT?
<ashthespy> On paper BT should work with mainline.. I need to test and enable the right Kconfig options..
<ashthespy> TBH I got sidetracked playing with u-boot mainline for rk3308...
<IgorPec> ok. this can be done later. its not expected that everything works
<ashthespy> Btw - we should soon be able to squeeze RK3308 into rockchip64...
<IgorPec> aha, this is still a rocpis-dev family. i haven't noticed
<IgorPec> what is the main difference between your 5.5 and mainline + patches?
<ashthespy> No networking/Audio stuff yet
<ashthespy> and tsadc
<ashthespy> mainline just boots :p
<IgorPec> let's wait for piter if he had some complains. our first priority is sorting our bugs for release next week
<IgorPec> after we release stuff, things will become less complicatged
<ashthespy> Sure, no hurries, I don't believe there are a lot of people waiting with this board ;-)
<IgorPec> yeah, agree. I also don't have it

<douardda> hi, I want to fix issue #1798 on gh (I created a couple of days ago)
<douardda> making a patch to make the pcm5102a selectable is easy
<douardda> but I'm not sure how to make is selected (as module) bu default for sunxi boards
<douardda> to make it selected by default (sorry)
<douardda> should I modify config files in config/kernel ?
skiboy has quit [Quit: Leaving]
<IgorPec> douardda: yes.
<IgorPec> if you start compilation with KERNEL_CONFIGURE="yes" or make menuconfig ... do you get a prompt? I mean can you select it?
<douardda> I do use menuconfig yes
<douardda> and I can select it (according it has a description in the Kconfig file)
<IgorPec> ok,then its ok. If you use our build tool to get into kernel menu changes it also creates a config after you exit ... and save inot output/config/
<IgorPec> or .config .. copy that over config/kernel/linux-xxx-yyy.config
<douardda> ok let's give it a try then
<IgorPec> ok
<douardda> IgorPec: is there a reason not to build other pcmxxx modules in armbian by default? or it is just because it come like that from upstream?
<douardda> (like try to keep the linux-image-current-sunxi package not too fat)
<IgorPec> no reason, you can enable others if you like
<IgorPec> we don't need to keep kernel small in size
<douardda> ok thanks
<douardda> at least the pcm5102 and pcm51xx since they are very common in cheap "dacs"
<TRS-80> > we don't need to keep kernel small in size
<TRS-80> Yes, it is not (Mach?) or GNU Hurd, etc.; Linus and Co. gave up on that long ago XD
<IgorPec> yeah, but on the embedded side of the world ... size do matters. still
<TRS-80> Of course true. Just making bit of a joke. :)
<douardda> gheez I had not cloned a (vanilla) kernel for ages, damn it has grown quite a bit
<IgorPec> i know :)
<TRS-80> see though ^ lol
<TRS-80> I read a little about concepts of micro kernels, which I found very interesting, but apparently monolithic are much faster in practice, so here we are
<TRS-80> Another interesting tid-bit: Intel Management Engine uses Minix, making it by far the most widely deployed micro-kernel in use today. :D
<IgorPec> i ran AMD :)
<douardda> then you go the unikernels (there's even one in OCaml: MirageOS :p
<douardda> I should give a try running mpd on such a unikernel...
<TRS-80> AMD followed suit pretty soon after, unfortunately. I always forget wthat theirs is called though. Aah there it is Platform Security Processor (PSP) https://libreboot.org/faq.html#amd
<TRS-80> "It is extremely unlikely that any post-2013 AMD hardware will ever be supported in libreboot, due to severe security and freedom issues; so severe, that the libreboot project recommends avoiding all modern AMD hardware."
<douardda> yeah I saw a talk at fosdem more/less on this
<TRS-80> which is why my desktop workstation is KGPE-D16 (https://libreboot.org/docs/hardware/kgpe-d16.html) the most recent most powerful hardware I could find in Freedom
<TRS-80> so, still AMD ;)
<douardda> I guess open hardware is the only way to go
<TRS-80> douardda: it is *slowly* moving that way, but we have a long way to go
<douardda> yep
<IgorPec> yeah. very slow
<TRS-80> but this is real reason I throw all my weight behind Armbian. I feel strongly we have a rare strategic opportity to shape the future market of computer hardware, which is shaping up right before our very eyes
<TRS-80> Intel and other dinosaur business models are already dead. they just have a lot of momentum and resources, so it will take a long time still :D
* TRS-80 just saw EliasKotlyar in armbian-commits
<TRS-80> he is author/maintainer(?) of open source firmware I use on Xiaomi Ip cameras! :) https://github.com/EliasKotlyar/Xiaomi-Dafang-Hacks
<TRS-80> IgorPec: I thought that link was going to be about F/LOSS movement or something XD
<IgorPec> its about similar hard strouggle
<IgorPec> not really sure if we its a right match, but wording is
<TRS-80> certainly, would make great book title for what I was thinking, but guess not since it's taken already XD
<IgorPec> yeah. btw. i am delivering a speech in two weeks in the local hackers club. international version will follow later in the year
<IgorPec> it's kind of update of where we are, mainly on the technical aspects of the project
<douardda> IgorPec: the proper way for a patch is a gh PR or a git send-email is ok?
<IgorPec> PR is preffered way
<douardda> ok
<TRS-80> IgorPec: That is awesome, man. I only (somewhat) recently stumbled across your presentaiton at BalCCon2K17 and thought it was great. It connected a lot of dots for someone even like me who has been following the project for a while. I think it deserves more visibility, that video, somehow on the site.
<TRS-80> it looks like it was just stuck on that page for lack of ideas where else to put it :D
<IgorPec> that video is from 2017 IIRC. It needs an update.
<TRS-80> for lurkers: https://www.armbian.com/authors/
<IgorPec> yeah, I agree. Website is not in a very good shape. No one is really doing anything
<IgorPec> I only maintain boards
<TRS-80> true, but the history and stuff is very valid "how we got here so far" etc.
<TRS-80> up to that point at least
<IgorPec> yes it is. for historical reasons, video is ok, but is few years old.
* TRS-80 has a pet peeve about "bloggers" who don't put dates on their posts
<IgorPec> we have a LOT of community content, on forums
<TRS-80> s/bloggers/marketers
<IgorPec> there are also other people making videos about armbian stuff
<TRS-80> yes like NicoD
<TRS-80> probably others
<IgorPec> i have been on a conference when some guy was presenting " doing overlays in armbian or something" :)
<TRS-80> I can only imagine your reaction, I would have paid money to see in person XD
<IgorPec> then one person from community presented armbian system as whole on some Checz local conference (i could understand a little)
<IgorPec> than https://twitter.com/Poddingue is presenting something related to armbian all the time
<IgorPec> i mean there is a lot of content opportunity
NeuroScr has joined #armbian
<TRS-80> I think it is a good step though for you to go do presentations, etc. to get the word out "straight from the horse's mouth" so to speak
<TRS-80> congrats, you are leader of big F/LOSS project now :D

wi has joined #armbian
<IgorPec> TRS-80: thanks for cheer up. I have to hibernate to be able to prepare for the presentation :) and to do some daytime jobs
<TRS-80> IgorPec: like me you are textbook introvert :) which (maybe you know) actually does not mean we are anti-social, but rather we need alone time to "re-charge our batteries" as opposed to extrovert who receive charge from being around people
<TRS-80> Also yes it was a compliment for sure, but also it is a double edged sword being in such position, as I am sure you already found out. Another reason I try to help, I been in such leadership position before, myself.
<TRS-80> s/you are/you sound like
<IgorPec> am aware of the other edge/s and which is why we are trying to create better formal decision structure.
<TRS-80> Yes, looks like it. Sometimes I worry you burn out, then I fear no more Nice Things (tm) for us. :)
<IgorPec> to make it right and to save our souls from burning out
<TRS-80> lol jinx
<IgorPec> hehe :)
<TRS-80> IgorPec: if you ever travel to US I would like to buy you some beers
<IgorPec> yes, that's a real problem. which is why I am going to sleep right now :) ask @lanefu about those decision making stuff, can't find atm
<TRS-80> OK, cheers
<IgorPec> i have been close two months ago
<IgorPec> in the south pacific
<TRS-80> don't forget to let me know when you do
<TRS-80> Hawaii? lol
<TRS-80> I mean mainland US, even then... it is very big country, so...
<IgorPec> no, much more to the south
<IgorPec> not in US
<TRS-80> oh, maybe you meant "close to burning out" ???
<IgorPec> world southern capital city?
<TRS-80> I dunno, depend on what metric I suppose :)
<IgorPec> its actually a hard question
<TRS-80> oh we are doing trivia now? hang on
* TRS-80 autism intensifies
<IgorPec> no, 1st answer is correct, NZ (don't burn out) :)
<TRS-80> that was my intuition, fwiw
<TRS-80> you don't either (burn out) always remember to take care of yourself IgorPec
<TRS-80> first
<TRS-80> it is not selfish, but necessary
<IgorPec> i know.
<IgorPec> ok, now i really go . see you
<TRS-80> cheers, mate
