<archetech> I like weston native myself then wayland/drm
<lanefu> hmm

<lanefu> if i had an N2+ then I could fiddle and figure out things on my N2
* lanefu hates testing stuff on computers he uses to do stuff
<archetech> they the same just diff dtb
* TRS-80 returns from being summoned to dinner
<TRS-80> lanefu: did you finally embrace the tiling WM meme? XD
<TRS-80> whip up a VM
<lanefu> TRS-80: still on the backlog.. got pinebook pro and got distracted...
* lanefu hopes to actual have armbian VMs for testing shit in the near-ish future
<TRS-80> nice
<TRS-80> I been pretty happy with i3 (gaps) it seems quite stable
<TRS-80> then I got into rofi, and then my Elisp and rofi interests got together and I wrote rofi-in-elisp and that's one of my main interfaces now :D

<archetech> but hey that's just ricin right
<lanefu> only if you modded the startup screen with some new RLE files

<archetech> they make usb3 for pci no need for that adapter
<stipa> they do but

<chewitt> archetech for the sake of asking .. what is it that you'd want built?
<chewitt> I'm a bit of a n00b when it comes to compiling anything except LibreELEC
<archetech> hi not build just be able to run panfrost on armbian bullseye
<chewitt> Any illusion you're under that i'm a developer is testament to how well the LE build-system works, not my l33t sk1llz
<archetech> lol np ya got a git repo so that says ya not a beginner
<chewitt> for a start, I have no real clue what bullseye is :)
<archetech> its the dev version of debian that armbian uses
<chewitt> ahh, more clever codenames
<chewitt> I do numbers, not names
<chewitt> much easier
<archetech> its ok im not a dev either
<archetech> so if you have a kernel that has panfrost and works on bub/dev I can try it
<archetech> bub=ubu
<archetech> bub=ubu/deb
<archetech> for N2
<archetech> amlogic being the repo I see
<archetech> or master or w/e
<archetech> bulls=deb11
<c0rnelius> Bullseye is essentially just testing I believe and unstable is Sid.
<archetech> these guys are stuck llvmpipe
<archetech> on
<chewitt> I only build uImage kernels with embedded init (for LE)
<archetech> they dont even have mali_kbase for their de's
<chewitt> in the images there
<chewitt> but I think this will not be useful on desktop distros due to packaging differences
<archetech> ok so just le a/v tweaked kernels
<archetech> ok I get it what ya do now
<archetech> I think I'd have to hit up tobetter
<archetech> ill chk his repo again
Bugies has quit [Ping timeout: 260 seconds]
<archetech> ok new kern here brb
archetech has quit [Quit: Leaving]
<c0rnelius> chewitt: is there some kind of magic I'm missing when building mainline uboot for the N2+? my uboot bin is .4 smaller than urs.
<chewitt> different compiler options? .. different gcc?
<c0rnelius> which gcc are you using?
<chewitt> more importantly.. does it work?
<c0rnelius> well I don't own the board but the fella testing it says it doesn't and thats the only diff I could see was the size diff.
<chewitt> 9.2 I think
<c0rnelius> where are you getting ur boot fips?
<chewitt> github.com/LibreELEC/amlogic-boot-fip <= all my own work :)
<c0rnelius> k let me check it
<c0rnelius> i was using armstrong's
<chewitt> mine is a superset of his plus some I acquired
<c0rnelius> thanx, as always.
<c0rnelius> yeah I had to compile my own from the le potato as his seemed a bit busted
<c0rnelius> for*
<chewitt> it's possible my bl301 is newer than his
<chewitt> which might explain differences
<chewitt> the n2, n2+ and c4 fips in my repo should be the same files
<chewitt> iirc
<chewitt> n2/n2+ definitely are
<c0rnelius> hmm. well the fips I'm using for both the c4 and n2 work just fine. I just wanted to rule out that this may be the problem with the N2+.
<chewitt> if you're using the original n2 fips, they won't boot the n2+
<c0rnelius> yah thats what I thought!
<chewitt> if you rebuild them from current HK sources (or use mine) both n2/n2+ can share the same fips
<chewitt> mine are not 'latest' but fairly recent
<c0rnelius> alright... I'm just gonna be a cheat and use urs :D

<chewitt> c0rnelius let me know if it works .. I never use those files directly, I just cache them in the LE image build process and sync them with images
<c0rnelius> chewitt: will do, sir
<archetech> hmm

<IgorPec> we know its crap
<IgorPec> but people will try to attach gtx 2080 to it :)
<stipa> and run crysis
<stipa> it's like shitty usb3
<ikmaak> can i do sli with two pi4 compute modules with 2080 on it? :P
<IgorPec> rpi is just shit for masses
<IgorPec> ikmaak: yes, via wifi
<IgorPec> :)
<ikmaak> ah good, ordering now!
<ikmaak> its singularly gullible day so no better moment
<stipa> now or never!
<stipa> but it's not that bad, 3GBs is oke for pcie x2 which is theoretically 4000bs

<[TheBug]> does it
<[TheBug]> ?
<[TheBug]> cause I have 2 of them just sitting
<[TheBug]> with crappy Android images
<[TheBug]> you have any good instructions for loading linux on them?
<[TheBug]> nice!
<[TheBug]> maybe a new project for the weekend!
<buZz> #maemo-leste <- aswell
<[TheBug]> ;D
<[TheBug]> yeah seems like would be awesome to change at least one of them over and play with it
<buZz> maemo leste also supports n900
<[TheBug]> yeah hehe
<[TheBug]> have a buddy with a few of those
<[TheBug]> why I thought of them when I saw that video
<[TheBug]> hes been running Linux on em for a while
<buZz> n900 never really ran anything beside linux
<buZz> there's some android ports but nobody uses them really
<buZz> maemo is just debian with x11 and a weird window manager

<c0rnelius> But most of them are kids, as it is a kids toy for the most part and it's seems this new 400 is trying to market to schools and computer labs. Which is fine... I guess? It is nice to see that they are at least trying to join the club and get the latest releases running on par with other boards. As far as mainline is concerned.
<c0rnelius> I'm pretty sure they get some kind of subsidies from the UK which is why they're doing this.

<archetech> take a N2/C4 with armbian focal bump it to groovy and swap out the uboot kernel and mesa for odroids ya get gnome wayland on mail blobs
<archetech> much better than staock armb on llvmpipe
<archetech> stock*
<archetech> my tip for the day
<stipa> those kids will one day be engineers who will deploy raspberry pi's running python into factories to automate stuff because they don't want to learn anything else.
<stipa> they teach python at MIT
<stipa> python simply aint for serious stuff, maybe for hobbyists and prototyping
<c0rnelius> My thing is this... I bought an SBC for my youngest. Why would I buy him an odroid n2/+ when I know support and the adult base those boards not forgiving. If he had questions or didn't understand for the most part people would just be rude to him. Whats he gonna go on to Armbian and ask for help? come on! and by the way no offense, but its not the most polite place to get answers sometimes. So a
<c0rnelius> Pi4 was an easy choice for me to make.
<c0rnelius> for those*
<c0rnelius> Do I think its a better board? Of course not... But as far as a learning tool and getting him into Linux I sure do believe its a better choice. When it comes to basics.
<IgorPec> archetech: did i told you that tips are worthless
<IgorPec> if you have no resources to implement
<archetech> you dont know who may have read that
<IgorPec> i see how much is beeing picket up
<IgorPec> there are a lot of people like you on forums
<archetech> darn right there are
<IgorPec> but very very little people that follow the idea
<IgorPec> since that part is usually pain
<archetech> and Ive seen alot of action for what ive doing this month on odroid
<archetech> been
<archetech> as you know theres now groovy and a panfrost thread
<IgorPec> i put this desktop on hold for a few weeks
<IgorPec> we have to come out with a release
<IgorPec> then prepare desktop skeleton for easy hacking
<archetech> has nuttin to do with a user here doin a fun improvemnt to their odroid sbc
<archetech> im sure the release will be a nice one though
<IgorPec> well, its one of those must done tasks
<IgorPec> not as fancy as 3d desktop
<IgorPec> but without it you can't have stable 3d desktop
<archetech> yup
* archetech loves a solid new base
<archetech> the groovy base is solid
<[TheBug]> thats what she said
<stipa> c0rnelius: Armbian support ain't some blondie with silicone tits it's a real engineer.
<IgorPec> groovy base is not exactly solid :)
<IgorPec> i was doing quite a lot of groovy testing and ... i can't say its there yet
<archetech> for a dev release it is imo
<IgorPec> but usable for playing around
<IgorPec> yeah, i forget you are arch user ;)
<IgorPec> stability has different meaning
<archetech> for sure
<c0rnelius> stipa: ur just proving my point. but not all users are adults and nor are they all engineers.
<archetech> ubu dev rel = arch 3 months ago
<IgorPec> and arch is armbian one year ago
<archetech> no comment
<stipa> c0rnelius: your youngest could easily find a solution on Armbian forum and it could fit nicely with his rpi, that's Linux to some extent
<IgorPec> arch: you only see N2
<archetech> I see plenty more goin on
<IgorPec> but you see allwinner as pointless
<c0rnelius> allwinner rocks!
<IgorPec> where is actually that huge advanatage in term of code and know-how
<c0rnelius> stipa: the kid is 12... I'd rather him not be subjected to some of the Armbian shenanigans I've witnessed.
<IgorPec> some rockchip and a little, perhaps nothing in amlogic
<c0rnelius> for that matter... the Pi garbage either :D but seemed like the lesser of two evils ;)
<stipa> c0rnelius: just block it in the firewall...
<[TheBug]> linux-sunxi is the reason I got into SBCs to begin with
<IgorPec> for me A20
<[TheBug]> just because of all the communities they are the one that actually has a lot of information publicly available
<[TheBug]> yeah I started with an A10
<[TheBug]> I still have 2 of them in a box somewhere
<IgorPec> i have one running
<IgorPec> :)
<[TheBug]> Have an A20 also BPi
<[TheBug]> and H3, H5, v3s
<[TheBug]> :D
<Tonymac32> Wello hello friends, and anyone else
<IgorPec> hellow!
<Tonymac32> stipa perhaps we keep the conversation to "silicon" and avoid "silicone" :)
<Tonymac32> that said I hold the RPi as a learning tool
<Tonymac32> that was it's purpose, and is still it's purpose
<IgorPec> stipa is running secret plan of cutifying armbian aka get chicks to armbian
<Tonymac32> it has no other value, nor should it be expected to
<Tonymac32> IgorPec LOL
<IgorPec> yeah, well we are dead serious
<IgorPec> to mitigate this ego boosting linux macho figts
<c0rnelius> :)
<Tonymac32> That's honestly where all of their problems come from, they try to make the learning tool a server, or try to make the learning tool a production machine controller
<IgorPec> if we fail, it can't be worse :)
<Tonymac32> I have 2 of them ( I remembered there was another) running right now haha
<Tonymac32> (I haev a Lora gateway and a Volumio music player)
<IgorPec> btw. tonymac32 today is my 3rd day schooling kids at home (alone!)
<c0rnelius> I use a pi3a+ as a music player :) works great.
<Tonymac32> you are still alive, this is a good sign :)
<IgorPec> yeah, but getting attached to crazy ideas :)
<Tonymac32> I only use the Pi 2, the 3 was horrible the last time I touched one, it's why I abandoned them
<c0rnelius> yea the 3B was and is complete shit.
<Tonymac32> and the 4 does not look to be an incredible achievemnt
* IgorPec only has 3b somewhere :)
<Tonymac32> I have 2 of them, I bought a bunch to do stuff with, and then they were terrible
<Tonymac32> :D
<c0rnelius> nah its not, but like I said at least you don't need to run foundation kernel junk on it to run.
<c0rnelius> so its an improvement in that way
<Tonymac32> for beginners the Pi's are fine
<Tonymac32> I shot down a project in my company to use them in manufacturing plants
<Tonymac32> I have some experience in these things, and just mentioned vendor lock-in
<Tonymac32> if an Opi doesn't fit you can switch to another vendor's H3 board
<Tonymac32> or RK3399, etc
<Tonymac32> if the Pi has a problem or they stop selling board (who knows), poof
<Tonymac32> that SoC is gone forever
<archetech> we all have our reasons-preferences in sbc's the consensus ive seen around is odroids are corvettes allwin/rockchip doge omni's :)
<archetech> dodge
<Tonymac32> much rust very slow
<Tonymac32> doge
<archetech> lots of breakage
<c0rnelius> archetech: you just got desktop fever ;)
<archetech> c0rnelius, guilty
<archetech> some like nas I like de
<Tonymac32> The S922X is a beefy processor, the RK3399 is as well
<Tonymac32> the 3328 is a disappointment thanks to Rockchips and their lack of mainlining
<c0rnelius> hey i like them all... but I do accept limitations.
<Tonymac32> for that particular part
<Tonymac32> I have almost every one of them at this point, some I use, some I don't
<Tonymac32> of course now that I have I2S working on Libre Computer Tritium H2+ board it might get some use
<c0rnelius> Tonymac32: aren't they coming out with a rev2 for the Potato?
<Tonymac32> rumor has it
<Tonymac32> I need to get my hands on one
<Tonymac32> :)
<c0rnelius> yeah me too
<c0rnelius> solid lil board
<c0rnelius> i have two of them
<c0rnelius> rev1 that is
<Tonymac32> I figured :)
<archetech> c0rnelius, "What can I say..I like little computers" still find that very succinct
<Tonymac32> I have a NanoPi K2 and Odroid C2, both were nice, the K2 was too early to market and FriendlyARM only does so much software dev
<Tonymac32> the C2 was earlier, but Odroid really spent some time making it work
<Tonymac32> comparatively speaking
<c0rnelius> archetech: they are very sexy.
<c0rnelius> I gots this C4 but i gotta say... I'm not overly impressed.
<archetech> I dont name my cars or personize tech but ok
<Tonymac32> If baylibre had been mainlining stuff for Amlogic at the point the K2 came out it would have done much better
<Tonymac32> the C4 is S905X2?
<Tonymac32> I don't have one
<c0rnelius> I'm assuming it would make a good media box or something or a NAS, but other than that. Not impressed
<Tonymac32> yeah, the S905X/2/3/4 are all media box processors, but so is the H series
<Tonymac32> from amlogic
<c0rnelius> i think its X3?
<archetech> C4 gets good reviews its nicely balanced
<Tonymac32> Amlogic released too many generations in rapid succession, I don't even know
<archetech> take a C4 over a rpi4
<c0rnelius> archetech: its a nice a board and very good looking... but looks only go so far.
<c0rnelius> archetech: ctually compile speeds are way faster on a pi4
<Tonymac32> yeah it's X3
<c0rnelius> actually*
<Tonymac32> well that makes sense, the Pi4 is all A72's
<c0rnelius> yeap
<Tonymac32> the C4 is A55's
<c0rnelius> right again
<Tonymac32> so little cores trying to fight big cores
<Tonymac32> it's like the Pi 2 trying to arm wrestle a Tinker Board
<c0rnelius> the C4 runs super cool though
<archetech> c4 has a G31
<archetech> good gpu
<Tonymac32> that is a common theme with the quad core littles from Amlogic in my experience, they seem to run cool
<archetech> bifrost!
<archetech> and it dont get hot
<c0rnelius> at the end of the day I'm gonna replace one of the potatoes with it, which I run as Kodi boxes.
<c0rnelius> i mean a guess a nas option is there, but I already have one.
Bugies has quit [Ping timeout: 260 seconds]
<archetech> I put a laptop sata drive on usb3 of my rock64 w/ OMV ~65MB/s done with it
<Tonymac32> I'm waiting on a helios64 to make it across the ocean to replace my XU4 + Raid tower
<archetech> if I get antsy ill get a$20 ssd for it some day
<Tonymac32> haha
<archetech> yeah I like that new helios
<archetech> but I like the new HC4 more for wayyy less $
<Tonymac32> I don't know how it will be, but the enclosure is nice enough even if I have to swap the guts
<Tonymac32> I have a 4-bay setup now, this one coming is a 5
<Tonymac32> The HC4 is 2
<archetech> 2 is all I ned
<archetech> need
<Tonymac32> great for a lot of things, but didn't fit my needs
<Tonymac32> I'm sorry, this is just weird
<archetech> yeah capacity its the way to go
<archetech> wheres that super delayed rk3588
<Tonymac32> have you seen the proposed specs on it?
<Tonymac32> it's vaporware
<archetech> that it is apparently
* Tonymac32 doesn't actually know, but it looks way too awesome to be real
