<wens> jemk: as i suspected :p
<wens> still there's a blob which is probably for the phy?
<lennyraposo> the h3?
<lennyraposo> wens
<lennyraposo> or somehting else?
<wens> a80
<wens> the otg is usb 3.0
<wens> only one in the family :|
<wens> got 2 rpi 3s
<lennyraposo> kewl
<lennyraposo> how are they performing?
<wens> still downloading the image
<lennyraposo> would be great to do a comparison between the rpi 3 and the pine64's a53 implementation
<wens> it's not for me though
<wens> my pine64 is still in the box
<wens> well, my pre-prod one anyway
<wens> i haven't received my backer one
<lennyraposo> still awaiting the dev one
<lennyraposo> adn then my backerkit ones
<lennyraposo> shoudl get the dev one this week according to pine team
<lennyraposo> 2 x 2gbs 4 x 1gb models
<lennyraposo> so I will have 7 in total
<lennyraposo> had 2 x 512mb models originally on order in addtion but I removed them
<lennyraposo> may still order 1 512
<lennyraposo> looking to put up tutorials on how to do things on the pine next week
<lennyraposo> got a site in the works atm
<lennyraposo> gonna build a debian image
<lennyraposo> with mate
<lennyraposo> and one bare bones
<lennyraposo> then I can finally start working on things for the pine
<lennyraposo> ;)
<lennyraposo> get my feet wet so to speak
<wens> i haven't received any shipping info
<lennyraposo> from backerkit?
<wens> yeah
<lennyraposo> neither have I
<lennyraposo> lockdown is in 2 more weeks anyways ;)
<wens> mine is locked down and says ready to ship
<lennyraposo> not mine
<wens> i can understand the delay though
<lennyraposo> same here
<lennyraposo> very ambitious of them
<lennyraposo> hopefully the new packaging will prevent any bent boards on delivery
<wens> everytime there's a major earthquake here, the semiconductor fabs go into disaster mode
<lennyraposo> yep
<wens> and my friend gets called back to work lol
<lennyraposo> haha
<lennyraposo> if you see earthquake in the news
<lennyraposo> and you are looking to make purchase
<lennyraposo> check wher ethe quake occurred
<lennyraposo> helps you save in the long run
<wens> i still remember the island being called the single point of failure for the semiconductor business lol
<lennyraposo> use to see a lot of fluctuation sin ram prices that way
<lennyraposo> back in the sd to ddr era
<wens> should be better with samsung taking a lot of orders now
<lennyraposo> yeppers
<lennyraposo> pm I sent is a work in progress
<wens> yup that was when we had a lot of dram companies
<lennyraposo> gotta be adding everywhere
<wens> afaik a lot of them are going out of business after dram prices hit rock bottom
<lennyraposo> hard to compete with the big boys
<lennyraposo> reminds me of the video card market in the 90s
<lennyraposo> how many companies went bye bye
<lennyraposo> s3, cirrus logic, matrox was bought by ati
<lennyraposo> ati later merged with amd
<wens> amd's not doing too well
<lennyraposo> they need to get back to basics
<lennyraposo> or focus their attention in 2 areas
<lennyraposo> first
<lennyraposo> their apu
<wens> i dropped the graphics card in my latest build
<wens> intel iris pro is good enough for light gaming
<lennyraposo> second they need to focus one their cpu line
<lennyraposo> better performance per clock cycle
<lennyraposo> that's wher ethey are getting trounced by intel
<lennyraposo> I also want to see my 8 core apu ;)
<lennyraposo> their best apu is pretty competetive with the lowest i5s
<wens> i don't know, been a while since anyone in my circles used amd cpus
<lennyraposo> thankfully their server opterons are still great
<lennyraposo> for laptops I use amd apus
<lennyraposo> desktops still intel
<lennyraposo> but not the soc type
<wens> haven't used opterons in 8 years :|
<lennyraposo> using a liano on my main goto laptop
<lennyraposo> still got room to upgrade too
<lennyraposo> have ordered a 3550mx A8
<wens> hmm, the only apu i have is in my ps4 lol
<lennyraposo> lol
<lennyraposo> amd ;)
<lennyraposo> and they got the 8 cores
<lennyraposo> xbox got the 6core
<lennyraposo> need ot bring that to the consumer market
<lennyraposo> outsid eof consoles
<lennyraposo> brb
<lennyraposo> back
<lennyraposo> was sayng goodnight to my wife
<lvrp16> they didn't make the APU powerful enough. they should have done a massive core.
<lvrp16> it wouldn't harm their discrete business
<lvrp16> but would push their CPUs
<lvrp16> plus 28nm is cheap, why go small on die size when they can just bin
<lvrp16> people are looking for a machine that can run 1080p, AMD should have just given it to them
<lvrp16> and grab like 50% notebook share
<lennyraposo> I cna run 1080p on a pentium D 805 with hd 5450 easily
<lennyraposo> I do it every day ;)
<lennyraposo> my system does 1080p without sweating
<lennyraposo> they did give it to them
<lennyraposo> the problem was they start going teh soldered on baord route
<lennyraposo> with a number of their notebooks jobs
<lennyraposo> intel did it to but with their celeron line
<lennyraposo> the n2900 series
<lvrp16> amd's apus were pathetically weak. intel released iris and matched the performance.
<lennyraposo> they sure did
<lvrp16> amd should have put a 280 class graphics in there
<lvrp16> no way any iris chip would come close
<lennyraposo> instead they have a r270
<lvrp16> the integrated crap is a r240 level gpu
<lennyraposo> sorry
<lennyraposo> correction
<lennyraposo> the 240
<lvrp16> if they put 265x level CPU, they would have taken like 50% of the notebook market
<lvrp16> gpu*
<lvrp16> instead they put out a weak pathetic turd that no one bought
<lennyraposo> I understand why on the desktop market
<lennyraposo> put in a weaker gpu
<lvrp16> even desktop market!
<lennyraposo> but the laptop market never understood their logic
<lvrp16> they should have put a 270 or 280 level gpu
<lvrp16> i would have bought boatloads of them
<lennyraposo> desktop market forces user to by a card
<lennyraposo> easy to add on
<lennyraposo> the notebook market
<lennyraposo> it's a doen deal
reev has joined #linux-sunxi
<lvrp16> yeah but if you have a $300 chip that saves on the power requirements and physical size
<lennyraposo> no upgrading from their (in most cases)
<lvrp16> people would have bought tons of them
<lennyraposo> true
<lvrp16> mini itx + 280 graphics
<lvrp16> would have been a dream machine
<lvrp16> instead they dropped a turd
<lennyraposo> teh whole am1 series was baffling
<lvrp16> freaking idiotic
<lvrp16> product managers are the most clueless people on earth
<lennyraposo> yes they are
<lvrp16> they pretend they do work
<lvrp16> but they're drive companies into the ground
<lennyraposo> work place politicians I call them
<lennyraposo> any news on the arm baords AMD has been working on?
<lvrp16> i have two samples coming q2
<lvrp16> lemaker
<lennyraposo> what specs?
<lennyraposo> 8 core?
<lennyraposo> a53 and a57?
<lvrp16> A1120
<lvrp16> 4 core
<lvrp16> but they're gigantic fat core
<lvrp16> cores*
<lvrp16> 25W thats like 5x what normal mobile SoCs do
<lennyraposo> interested in seeing what it can really do
<lennyraposo> mus tbe a dream with linux
<lennyraposo> I am impressed with intel having reduced it's power foot print on some of their socs
<lennyraposo> their atoms and the celeron series
<lvrp16> yeah but intel will fail in the long run
<lennyraposo> their j1900s at peak is abotu 15 watts with usb drive
<lvrp16> limited vision
<lennyraposo> true
<lvrp16> they're just treading water at this point
<lvrp16> instead of innovating
<lennyraposo> really pushiing x86 into the mobile sphere
<lvrp16> once arm designs a scalable interconnect
<lvrp16> it's pretty much game over for intel
<lennyraposo> they are just playing the power game for the moment
<lvrp16> power is the only game...
<lvrp16> "limited vision"
<lvrp16> intel realized that power is the only game too late
<lennyraposo> arm will be dangerous

<lennyraposo> pile in the cores
<lvrp16> cores don't matter, the interconnect matter
<lennyraposo> threading is a plus
<lvrp16> thats intel's only lead at this point
<lvrp16> intel can put together a 48 core chip with cache coherency
<lvrp16> qualcomm is trying really hard but they're still a few years away
p1u3sch1 has quit [Ping timeout: 244 seconds]
<lvrp16> when you get to 16+ cores, the interconnect becomes the biggest bottleneck and not the cores themselves
<lvrp16> IBM figured it out a long time ago with Cell BE
<lennyraposo> yes
<lennyraposo> slowing down the lanes ;)
<lvrp16> Cell BE's architecture is the only way to scale to 100+ cores
p1u3sch1 has joined #linux-sunxi
IgorPec has quit [Ping timeout: 248 seconds]
<lvrp16> because it doesn't force cache coherency
<lvrp16> thus the interconnect becomes dead simple
<lennyraposo> give it a year
<lvrp16> although people have to wrap their heads around the programming model
<lennyraposo> arm will have their version out by then ;)
<lennyraposo> arm supertransport ;)
<lennyraposo> or arm-ored transport
<lennyraposo> patent pending ;)
<lvrp16> :D
<lennyraposo> would be funny if they name dit that

<bpi-user> Hi! I have a question about U-Boot (mainline). Maybe someone can clarify that for me. The Debian wiki says:
<bpi-user> "AHCI support allows u-boot to boot the kernel, initrd and dtb from a SATA harddisk. U-boot itself has still to be installed on an SD card, but the rest of the system can be put onto a (much faster) harddisk."
<bpi-user> What exactly does that mean? Can the boot.scr file be placed on the SATA disk as well, or does it have to be on the SD card? This would basically mean, I could leave the SD card unpartitioned and just flash the Uboot binary to it, right?
avph has joined #linux-sunxi
<plaes> wens: \o/
mane has quit [Client Quit]
<NiteHawk> bpi-user: right. you just need the sd-card to get the bootloader up and running (SPL, U-Boot and possibly U-Boot environment). once that u-boot has initialized your hw, including sata, it shouldn't be a problem to load boot.scr from there
<zuikis> bpi-user: i think mainline u-boot does not have boot.src file anymore
<bpi-user> NiteHawk: Thanks. And how does that work if you have connected a SATA drive and a USB drive to the device at the same time? Does U-Boot have an internal order in which it probes storage devices for boot files (boot.scr, vmlinuz/zImage, dtb and possibly an initrd) or will it just pick "randomly"?
avph has quit [Ping timeout: 246 seconds]
<bpi-user> zuikis: I think you mean the script.bin files (generated from fex). The boot.scr (generated from boot.cmd) is still required. At least all the Debian based systems, I've seen still use it and the sunxi wiki still mentiones them, too.
juri_ has joined #linux-sunxi
<juri_> iscsitarget-dkms? ;)
avph has joined #linux-sunxi
paulk-collins has joined #linux-sunxi
<NiteHawk> bpi-user: iirc then u-boot has a predefined search order in its default environment - check http://git.denx.de/?p=u-boot.git;a=blob;f=include/configs/sunxi-common.h;h=a3994e1a6ad479292fe23cdf4c6d0dbcfabd3ef8;hb=HEAD#l416 onwards. but that's easily customized e.g. by reordering or removing boot devices from the env settings
avph has quit [Ping timeout: 246 seconds]
<zuikis> bpi-user: indeed, wiki mentions it, however i'm not sure what it is for, since i've built my image without boot.scr or if i did it was built automagically
<zuikis> nor i used any other file besides .bin to make it boot, i just added extlinux/extlinux.conf with info about zImage
<bpi-user> NiteHawk: Thanks. I'll have a look at the code. But I guess that's already all I need to know. Just for the record, while I do have a SATA drive and a USB drive connected to my device, only the SATA drive has boot files on it. I was just asking because of the device naming issues one may encounter when you have SATA and USB drives connected at the same time (i.e. one time /dev/sda is the SATA drive, the other time, it's the US

<bpi-user> zuikis: Ah, interesting. I haven't seen any mention of extlinux.conf files on sunxi devices. So, do you basicall place U-boot variables in there to let U-Boot know where to boot from, kernel parameters, etc.?
<bpi-user> zuikis: Is there a good ressource explaining such a setup?
<lvrp16> tkaiser: phoronix will have new number for orange pi and banana pi in two weeks
<zuikis> yes, it reminds syslinux/grub config a lot
<edolnx> bpi-user: Mainline u-boot has support for this, and it's from the pxeboot stuff. You can get docs on the common file formats for pxeboot and extboot here: http://www.syslinux.org/wiki/index.php?title=The_Syslinux_Project
avph has quit [Ping timeout: 246 seconds]
<edolnx> Note that u-boot does not implement syslinux directly, but it is designed to parse the same configuration files

<tkaiser> bpi-user: I would do a web search for 'root partuuid gdisk'
<tkaiser> lvrp16: Great! With or without heatsink? With or without meaning? ;)
<lvrp16> tkaiser: with heatsink and active cooling
<lvrp16> tkaiser: i originally sent him boards but he used orange pi images
<lvrp16> tkaiser: and no heatsinks, so it was pretty slow
<lvrp16> tkaiser: i am rerunning the numbers using armbian for him and it will be published probably along with the c2
<tkaiser> lvrp16: More importantly the Xunlong throttling settings killed CPU cores that's the main reason some results are so low
<lvrp16> i would imagine so, even armbian 5.05 will kill processors
avph has joined #linux-sunxi
steev has joined #linux-sunxi
<lvrp16> i didn't follow the opione development but i keep getting cpu freq set errors on 5.05, should i try 5.06?
<tkaiser> lvrp16: Relinking script.bin should be enough. The whole board auto detection is broken and we must change this since when a user connected an USB hub at first boot then the board will be wrongly identified
<lennyraposo> tkaiser you should patent your cooling kit for the pine ;)
yann|work has joined #linux-sunxi
<lvrp16> ahh, thats what happened to me.
<tkaiser> lvrp16: And then thermal problems are also quite common
<lvrp16> i mean the usb hub, mine came up as a 2 mini
<lvrp16> i have an otg hub attached
<tkaiser> But we have to rework that anyway since the new NanoPi M1+ is 100% identical to OPi PC (less RAM though)
<lvrp16> kind of useless when orange pi one is already $9
<tkaiser> lennyraposo: Yes, pretty ugly and loud solution. But with a large and slow fan that is mounted vibration free and controlled airflow this should work pretty well
<tkaiser> lvrp16: What's useless?
<lvrp16> nanopi m1+
<lvrp16> m1*
<tkaiser> The volume discounts are interesting... starting at +50 pieces ;)
<lvrp16> how much?
<tkaiser> I think price per piece incl. shipping is then $12.40 or something like that
massi has quit [Quit: Leaving]
<tkaiser> But still OPi PC is the better choice due to the voltage regulator. I don't like SoCs being driven with a voltage too high
<lvrp16> yeah steven is coming out with better versions of the pc and plus
<lvrp16> exciting :D
<lvrp16> but $12.4 is still higher than opione
<lvrp16> although ir is cool
<tkaiser> lvrp16: Not for me since with shipping included it's $13.5
<lvrp16> where are you based?
<tkaiser> lvrp16: Does Steven also tries to sell a board with GbE, 2 GB RAM but without bullshit (WiFi and the horrible GL830)?
<tkaiser> lvrp16: Germany
<lvrp16> should be better than that even

<KotCzarny> tipo, totally dead? o.O
<tipo> no just the 5v was dead. the board booted fine. just no 5v for sata/fan/etc

<KotCzarny> i guess you can steal 5v from the charger anyway
<KotCzarny> and DOA can happen to anyone
<KotCzarny> also, olimex is european company if you happen to live in .eu
<KotCzarny> and they design/make their own boards locally, not via chinese manufacturing
<tipo> not in the eu
<tipo> umm.... what is the better option, pcduino3 nano or banana pro? in terms of.... general kernel compatibility. if either can boot openbsd, it's a winner
avph has joined #linux-sunxi
<tkaiser> tipo: There are no differences between any A20 boards in this regard.
<tipo> tkaiser, i was under the impression that some manufacturers don't release the uboot source code
<tkaiser> A20 is A20, there's no difference (just slightly, for example Olimex Lime2 had problems with GbE since they used another GbE PHY than most/all other boards)
<tkaiser> tipo: Regarding torrent box we had recently some 'discussions' in Armbian forum and it seems there exists torrent software that is CPU bound: http://forum.armbian.com/index.php/topic/838-best-budget-device-as-torrent-box/?p=6667
<tkaiser> If that's the case a device with slower I/O but more CPU horsepower will perform better (eg. OPi PC)
<tipo> mmmm... interesting that you say that, because I have an orange pi pc arriving in the mail fairly promptly

<tipo> tkaiser, what is this "Fast Ethernet" you refer to? some sort of false gigabit?
<tkaiser> tipo: Nope, that's just an older standard maxing out at 100 Mbits/sec. 25 years ago that was bleeding edge
<tipo> mmm... didn't notice it wasn't gigabit, or I forgot since I ordered it
<KotCzarny> well, for home torrenting 100mbit is good enough
<tipo> KotCzarny, says you
* tipo lols
* tipo wants to have a killer seed ratio to make up for years of leeching due to bandwidth caps
<tipo> i owe the network like 1TB
<KotCzarny> pah, data junkie :P
<tipo> nah; it's years of bandwidth caps, and about 400gb of wikileaks junk data that they never gave me the key for lol
* tipo stores le precious insurance files

<lvrp16> it does have a clock speed advantage :)
<KotCzarny> did you test yours with limatester?
<lennyraposo> anyoen play with the s905s?
<lennyraposo> the c2s
<lvrp16> v7 code against v6 raspbian though, so technically pi 3 is faster
<lvrp16> yes, they are fast
<lvrp16> especially actively cooled
<lennyraposo> they aren't leveraging the cpu's capabilities
<lennyraposo> the pi3

afaerber has joined #linux-sunxi
<lvrp16> takiser: Pi One with Heatsink and Active cooling and Armbian is about 5% slower than Raspbian Pi 3 stock with Raspbian, I know it's not quite fair. Benchmarks that need 512MB RAM were horrible though, to be expected.
<lennyraposo> that's around an atom n270
<tkaiser> If I want to do number crunching I have to use optimised settings. And if I don't want to to this then it depends on the use cases. I/O or network: Forget about any RPi. Clueless user searching for great community... different story ;)
<lennyraposo> actually
<lennyraposo> fairs better
<tkaiser> lvrp16: Did you have an eye on throttling on all 3 boards?
alain_ has joined #linux-sunxi
<lvrp16> pi 3 is not actively cooled ;) not fair like i said
<tkaiser> PTS monitors only temperatures IIRC and does not record cpufreq.
<lvrp16> pi 3 throttles
<lennyraposo> sorry was thinking mips
<tkaiser> LOL, then it's obvious why OPi One gets close to RPi 3
<lvrp16> with PTS C2 is like 1.5x faster with active cooling
<lennyraposo> get a giggle from looking back at the pentium - pentium 4 era
<tkaiser> lvrp16: Banana Pi M3 is twice as fast with heatsink+fan compared to just a heatsink when running the usual PTS stuff.
<lvrp16> yes, M3 is insanely fast when I benched it
<lvrp16> i have some cello boards booked, i want to see how fast these fat cores will go
<tkaiser> lvrp16: At least you won't need a heatsink with Cello
<lvrp16> tkaiser: am i missing sarcasm? can't tell
<tipo> what is this crap about "at least you won't need a heatsink"? i have spare heatsinks for every board I own. they're so cheap.
<lvrp16> irc needs emoticons
<lvrp16> or accents
<lennyraposo> wow
<tipo> lvrp16, no.
<lennyraposo> just realized the card I used for the android image was a class 4
<lennyraposo> and it still booted in under a minute
<tkaiser> lvrpi16: Compare the specs for the 'little' 4 core AMD used on the Cello with the bigger one. Just a few W difference. Then think about the engines for 14 x SATA and 2 x 10GbE (that can't be used on this moronic board). Then you know what to expect
<tkaiser> 2 x SATA and 1 x GbE and 4 slow A53 cores. Not that challenging ;)
<lennyraposo> and no arm-ored transport ;)
<lvrp16> tkaiser: they're 4xA57
<lennyraposo> it is an a57 for the amd
<lennyraposo> at 1.7
<lennyraposo> 1.9 and 2.0 ghz (depending on model)
<lennyraposo> the thing will make for a decent storage node

<tkaiser> lvrp16: I'm curious regarding consumption if all the interesting stuff can't be used
<KotCzarny> and banana pi is 1.2W total, including micro audio amp
<lvrp16> tkaiser: the 10GBe and PCIE is the biggest power consumption, i'd imagine ~5-10W idle though

<NiteHawk> ah, okay
<willmore> I can't get a c2 to throttle running any of the PTS code. I can get to throttle with cpuburn only. I'm not using any active cooling.
<tkaiser> lvrp16: According to AMD A1120 (4 x A57 @ 1.7GHz) vs. A1170 (8 x A57 @ 2.0Ghz) is 25W vs. 32W TDP.

<willmore> lennyraposo, you have to try really hard.
<willmore> Not like an Opi1 where you just need to look at it sideways and it'll throttle.
<lennyraposo> lmao
<lennyraposo> that's what I am hearing
<willmore> I need to try an Opi1 with some agressive cooling. :)
paulk-collins has quit [Quit: Leaving]
<willmore> they just didn't layout that board to make large heatsinks practical. I'd need to mill some reliefs out of the bottom of the HS to fit over that silly torroid right next to the H3.
<willmore> This is why I would advise anyone using a SoC like these to put the SoC on the *bottom* of the board. Then you can easily use a metal baseplate/case as a heatsink.
<KotCzarny> i run mine in a metal box without vent holes
<KotCzarny> at 1.2W it's not heating much
<tkaiser> willmore: Banana Pi/Pro are designed like that. And guess what: People put these in the official acrylic cases with 2 mm airflow around and then started to drill a large hole into the acrylic plate to mount an annoying fan ;)
<willmore> tkaiser, *facepalm*
<KotCzarny> tkaiser: my bpim1 churns happily without heatsink/fan
<willmore> You can lead people to knowledge, but you can't make'em think.
<willmore> Also acrylic for a case? That's a bad idea. That stuff build up static like nobody's business.

<tkaiser> willmore: Also available for C2: https://www.spreed.me/spreedbox/
<willmore> tkaiser, that's sort of pretty. They went to a lot of effort to make it pretty.
<tkaiser> willmore: And functional (great heat dissipation too). Good example for great design
<willmore> Wow, I added some air moving over my Opi1 and it made a massive difference.
<willmore> Running cpuminer on four cores used to make it bang around 648, 800-something and 1000-something as it overheated and throttled back down. It was getting 1.4KH/s.
<willmore> Now, with a little airflow, it's getting 2KH/s and sitting around 52C at 1.2GHz.
<willmore> Wow.
<willmore> I wonder if it would survive cpuburn...
<KotCzarny> nothing survives cpuburn
<willmore> Don't be so sure. I"m running ssvb's newer A7 version and it's looking good so far...
<KotCzarny> ahm, thought you have something h3/a64 based
<willmore> Nope, just an H3 based board.
<willmore> Looks like it took it to 70C running four cores.
<willmore> KotCzarny, the C2 can handle cpuburn all day long with no airflow other than natural convection is you fiddle with the HS a tiny bit. If you don't a tiny bit of airflow will probably be enough. I'll go test that shortly.
<KotCzarny> not bad then

<agraf> the pine of course :)
<lennyraposo> ther eis the 3.10.65-bsp
<lennyraposo> not mainline but it works
<lennyraposo> ;)
<agraf> i doubt tumbleweed would be incredibly happy about a 3.10 kernel ...
<agraf> i can try though
<willmore> Keziolio, yes, it does. It just doesn't support all that much hardware. :(
<agraf> also 3.10 doesn't have efistub yet
<agraf> bleks
<lennyraposo> since 3.3
<lennyraposo> ;)
<Keziolio> willmore: well the only thing i care about is the ethernet port and usb, i asked in some channel some time ago and someone said "maybe in the future"
<willmore> Keziolio, yeah, many ARM SoCs are in the "basic is in mainline, but you'll be headless and maybe not have much I/O". But, it's better than it used to be. I appreciate the work of all the people who have gotten us this far.
<Keziolio> the raspberry pi has an excellent support, i don't want to be tied to a 2012 kernel until the end of times
<willmore> KotCzarny, still stable at 70C long term. yay!
