<oneinsect> KotCzarny:
<oneinsect> do you have kernel headers
<oneinsect> for the build you gave me last night
<oneinsect> i want to compile this
<KotCzarny> i have the whole kernel source, and you have it too because you've crosscompiled it on pc
<KotCzarny> so just copy few dirs and you should be fine
akaizen has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
<KotCzarny> include, tools, usr and probably Makefile and .config
<oneinsect> hmmm

<oneinsect> let me check it up
<NiteHawk> if it failed, maybe also retry it / request another confirmation?
jernej has joined #linux-sunxi

<oneinsect> let me retry

<KotCzarny> oneinsect: debian jessie still uses gcc 4.9.2
<oneinsect> yes
<KotCzarny> but if you dont mind waiting, just run armbian and compile stuff there
<oneinsect> now will try to compile
<KotCzarny> you can even run armbian in chroot on your modlooped thing
<oneinsect> ooh
<oneinsect> is it
<KotCzarny> yes, you will have to mount --bind some dirs (/dev, /dev/pts, /proc and maybe /sys)
<oneinsect> okie one or two last tries
<oneinsect> before i try it via armbian
<KotCzarny> but otherwise it will behave as if you have booted it
<oneinsect> hmmm
<oneinsect> why include ../../../config.mk in a makefile return an error
<oneinsect> its support to find config.mk
<oneinsect> supposed*
<oneinsect> three directories
<oneinsect> top
<oneinsect> it says Makefile:1: *** missing separator. Stop.
<oneinsect> aaah
<oneinsect> found the error
specing has joined #linux-sunxi
<oneinsect> the problem is not with
<oneinsect> armbian
<oneinsect> its with the kernel headers
<oneinsect> i now included the entire src
<oneinsect> still
<KotCzarny> you have to run at least make prepare
<KotCzarny> in kernel dir
<oneinsect> aaah
<KotCzarny> also, in armbian you can just apt-get install linux-kernel-headers
<KotCzarny> or similar
<oneinsect> hmmm
<oneinsect> let me try make mrproper
<oneinsect> but i am using the kernel you compiled
<oneinsect> not armbian
<KotCzarny> doesnt matter much
<oneinsect> hmmm
<oneinsect> the .ko file may not load
<KotCzarny> right
formruga has quit [Ping timeout: 244 seconds]
<KotCzarny> then you have to provide same kernel config or at least same features (smp, preempt or not, modversions, arch etc)
<oneinsect> okie if you find time
<oneinsect> just compile me that module
<KotCzarny> hehe
<KotCzarny> let me check if my opi is alive
<oneinsect> yes
<KotCzarny> /usr/src/mt7601u/src/os/linux/../../os/linux/rt_linux.c:1844:11: error: 'struct net_device' has no member named 'wireless_handlers'
<KotCzarny> probably too new for 3.4.x
<oneinsect> hmm i did not encounter that error
<oneinsect> trying runing
<oneinsect> ./miwifi_build.sh
<oneinsect> Changing #if LINUX_VERSION_CODE >= KERNEL_VERSION(3,12,0) to (3,02,0) in include/os/rt_linux.h allows the build to succeed.
<oneinsect> i dont know...just someone told
<KotCzarny> which line it is?
kaspter has joined #linux-sunxi
<KotCzarny> there is no 3,12 in any of the files
<oneinsect> correct
<oneinsect> that is correct
<oneinsect> googling this
<oneinsect> rt_linux.c error: 'struct net_device' has no member named 'wireless_handlers'
<oneinsect> shows lots of results
TaD_ has joined #linux-sunxi
<oneinsect> For the archives: it just means that CONFIG_WIRELESS_EXT should be enabled.
<KotCzarny> where is it?
<KotCzarny> there is no such switch in .config
<KotCzarny> so as i said, its for newer kernel
<oneinsect> newer kernel already has a driver for this
<oneinsect> but doesnt support ap mode
<oneinsect> that housq github is the only one
<oneinsect> which supports stable ap mode
<TaD_> I've managed to get u-boot, kernel-4.6 and a miniroot ramdisk built for an OrangePi Plus and I'm trying to get it booting over usb using sunxi-fel. So far u-boot works, and the kernel boots, unpacks the initrd but I'm having trouble working out what I should put for the bootarg root=??
<KotCzarny> if you are patient just wait for 4.7
<oneinsect> hmmm
<KotCzarny> otherwise you will have to backport it somehow, maybe older tag?
<KotCzarny> tad: root=/dev/ram
<KotCzarny> if you are using initrd
<KotCzarny> but kernel should pick it up itself
formruga has joined #linux-sunxi
IgorPec has quit [Ping timeout: 268 seconds]
<oneinsect> this is what i put
<oneinsect> for bootarg that has a ramdisk
<KotCzarny> there are two types of ramdisk, initramfs and initrd
<oneinsect> setenv bootargs uimage-new modules=loop,squashfs,sd-mod,usb-storage modloop=modloop-sunxi hdmi.audio=EDID:0 disp.screen0_output_mode=EDID:800x600p60 initcall_debug=0 console=ttyS0,115200 init=/init rootwait ramdisk_size=50000
<TaD_> KotCzarny: hmm ... doesn't seem to pick it up .. I'm using the suggested miniroot from http://linux-sunxi.org/FEL/USBBoot
<KotCzarny> tad: do you see info that kernel found ramdisk during boot?
formruga has quit [Ping timeout: 244 seconds]
<TaD_> yep ... [ 0.033601] Unpacking initramfs... [ 0.087341] Freeing initrd memory: 892K (c9f21000 - ca000000)
<KotCzarny> do you have /init or /etc/rc.S in that miniroot?
formruga has joined #linux-sunxi
<KotCzarny> and is it executable?
<KotCzarny> ie. chroot to it and see if ldconfig pickup libs if its not compiled statically, check executable flag etc
<TaD_> good question ... I'll have to dig into it and have a look. It fails at: 1.157618] VFS: Cannot open root device "ram" or unknown-block(1,0): error -6
<TaD_> so perhaps the miniroot doesn't have the correct /dev entries either
<KotCzarny> drop any root= param
<KotCzarny> if its initramfs you dont need it
<KotCzarny> also add explicit init=/some/path
<TaD_> It seems the miniroot isn't quite right, but at least everything else is working so far. Thanks for the suggestions
<oneinsect> KotCzarny
<oneinsect> what were the config changes you made
<oneinsect> for initrd
<KotCzarny> those two are for initrd
<KotCzarny> and for initramfs you have to provide path for rootfs
<TaD_> Aha! # CONFIG_BLK_DEV_RAM is not set <-- might have something to do with it, though it has CONFIG_BLK_DEV_INITRD=y
<oneinsect> yes
<oneinsect> also for initramfs did you provide any default path in the config you compiled for me?
<KotCzarny> i dont use initramfs, otherise you will end up with kernel with glued rootfs
<KotCzarny> which is a bit harder to modify
<KotCzarny> that's why i prefer initrd
<oneinsect> okie
<oneinsect> i am now going to boot armbian
<oneinsect> and compile stuff
<oneinsect> then and there
<oneinsect> i guess much easier
<KotCzarny> :)

<KotCzarny> oneinsect: make mrproper CLEANS the dir, make prepare does some basic preparing dir for other compilations too
<KotCzarny> and if you compile kernel or modules it does things done by make prepare anyway
<oneinsect> got it
<oneinsect> working now
<KotCzarny> rengolin: you need some boot files and plain armhf distro. if arch has it you can just boot working kernel and use arch fs
<oneinsect> i have to find out if this kernel has initrd enabled
<KotCzarny> oneinsect: gzip -dc /proc/config.gz|grep INITRD
<oneinsect> Armbian_5.07_Bananapim2plus_Debian_jessie_3.4.111
<oneinsect> # CONFIG_BLK_DEV_INITRD is not set

<oneinsect> i have to recompile the kernel again
<oneinsect> aaaaa
<oneinsect> do you under which it is in the colored menu config
<KotCzarny> its in the first menu
<KotCzarny> 'general setup'
<oneinsect> checking
<KotCzarny> Initial RAM filesystem and RAM disk (initramfs/initrd) support
<KotCzarny> but you have to enable initrd too probably
<oneinsect> yes
<KotCzarny> which is in "device drivers -> block devices"
<oneinsect> loopback device support
<oneinsect> and ram block

<KotCzarny> i wonder if opi+2e will introduce some new wtf or will be just opipc-on-roids
<lvrp16> it's not any faster, just more ram
<KotCzarny> and emmc
<KotCzarny> so a bit faster
<lvrp16> ;)
<KotCzarny> and more ram == faster
<lvrp16> orange pi puts out some seriously good boards for the money
<KotCzarny> as i said, if they dont introduce some design bug it will be one of the best in that price range
<lvrp16> yes, now steven just needs to fix the website ;)
<KotCzarny> naaah
<KotCzarny> you only need linux-sunxi
<lvrp16> :D:D
<KotCzarny> and aliexpress maybe
<lvrp16> he needs to put linux-sunxi's website as a partner link ;)
<jelle> the boards are out?
<KotCzarny> not yet
<lvrp16> no, two weeks
<KotCzarny> two weeks from when?
<lvrp16> now
<KotCzarny> drat
<lvrp16> drat?
<KotCzarny> as in 'damn i have to wait two weeks + shipping time'
<lvrp16> get an orange pi plus 2
<KotCzarny> naaaaah :P
<KotCzarny> opi+2e is a better deal

<lvrp16> i have a special bar table for all my boards
akaizen has joined #linux-sunxi
<KotCzarny> but for nice web browsing 1gb is too little
<lvrp16> have like 30 different boards
<lvrp16> do you have an odroid c2?
<KotCzarny> nope, im cheap
<KotCzarny> but managed to fry 2 ports on my bpi-r1
<lvrp16> hehe, i have an extra cubieboard 4 if you want
<KotCzarny> so i might be on the lookout for a new box #1
<KotCzarny> does it have integrated switch?
<lvrp16> oh no...
<KotCzarny> and sata, native
<KotCzarny> i'm reluctant when it comes to hdds and usb
<lvrp16> yeah usb and hdd never ends well
<KotCzarny> especially for 3T or more
<wens> rewriting the psci code in C...
<KotCzarny> wens: good idea, will it work?
<lvrp16> wens, sometimes i wish i can shadow you for a month to learn all this stuff

<wens> apritzel: yeah
* apritzel smells that wens wants to get rid of ATF ;-)

<KotCzarny> btw. would it be possible to achieve zeroclock on allwinner cpus?

<KotCzarny> would be awesome to have 10mA instead of 150mA in idle
<wens> KotCzarny: possible
<KotCzarny> can you put in the TODOS somewhere?
<apritzel> wens: please make sure to upgrade it to PSCI 1.0 on the way ;-)
<apritzel> or at least 0.2, AFAIK U-Boot is still on 0.1
<wens> 0.2 requires poweroff call, no? hard to support for now
<maz> wens: you can probably reduce the assembly to a prologue + exception return.
<oneinsect> okie about to turn nanopim1 with sub $2 mt7601 into an AP (access point)...fingers crossed
<apritzel> wens: but exactly worthwhile for that reason ;-)
<lvrp16> oneinsect mt7601 is very iffy on older kernels
<lvrp16> oneinsect: rtl8188cu is much better
<apritzel> wens: also we would get Linux reset for free, I think U-Boot already supports board reset
<oneinsect> mt7601 is so abundant
<oneinsect> and so cheap
<lvrp16> oneinsect it's cheap cause the driver is horrible and mt can't sell it
<oneinsect> plus its very stable in AP mode
<oneinsect> lol
<lvrp16> orly?
<oneinsect> yes
<oneinsect> let me show you
<wens> apritzel: that means moving rsb into secure monitor...
<apritzel> wens: sure, my plan anyway
<oneinsect> read here lvrp16:
<lvrp16> last year when i was testing various chips to build a custom dongle, the mt7601 driver for older kernels were in a very bad state
<oneinsect> I use this repo for my package and is very stable, but only works at 11g speeds (i.e. 54MBps TX and RX). The aforementioned source compiles only in AP mode and works as such without hostapd. Just load the modules, assign an IP and you're set.
<apritzel> wens: for the Pine I have some preliminary reset functionality in ATF using one of the watchdogs
<oneinsect> https://github.com/housq/mt7601u is the distro
<oneinsect> indeed
<oneinsect> i know it was in horrible shape
<oneinsect> but if you can get it working then nothin like it
formruga has joined #linux-sunxi
<oneinsect> distro=package*
<apritzel> wens: and I was thinking about a best effort powerdown but turning everything off I can easily access (clock gates, power gates, etc.)
<apritzel> wens: since ATF now runs is SRAM, I can even turn off DRAM
<lvrp16> oneinsect so no 5/6 coding rate?
<wens> apritzel: reset is quite easy
<wens> though u-boot doesn't do relocation of normal functions afaik
<lvrp16> 802.11g only? no 802.11n?
<oneinsect> well
<oneinsect> for now
<oneinsect> there is another repo to test in 802.11n in ap mode
<oneinsect> i am yet to test it
<oneinsect> non-ap driver is anyway in mainline kernel
<oneinsect> since long
<oneinsect> 4.x i believe
<lvrp16> 8188eu is not that much more expensive
<oneinsect> yes
<lvrp16> and larry finger has his fingers all over it
<oneinsect> 8188eu also works in ap mode
<oneinsect> cheapest h3 board + cheapest wifi in ap mode = interesting
<KotCzarny> throw in battery connector and 18650 and you are set
<oneinsect> lol
<oneinsect> indeed
<KotCzarny> right, pity opi+2e doesnt have battery connector :/
<oneinsect> neither does any of the other boards?
<KotCzarny> bpi-m1 and bpi-r1 have it
<oneinsect> except odroid-0
<oneinsect> oooh
<oneinsect> i didnt know about bpi
<KotCzarny> in fact my bpi-r1 has 18650 as a cheapo-ups
<KotCzarny> total cost under 5eur
formruga has quit [Ping timeout: 244 seconds]
<lvrp16> 8188eu has problems with some ralink 3352 aps
<oneinsect> hmmm
<oneinsect> you need a seperate patched hostapd to work
<oneinsect> properly
<lvrp16> my comcast router when paired with 8188eu goes to 0 bandwidth
pmattern has joined #linux-sunxi
<KotCzarny> sounds like fun
<lvrp16> the comcast router is ralink 3352
<oneinsect> 18650 is how much milliamps?
<KotCzarny> does it take down other clients too?
<KotCzarny> oneinsect: 18650 come in various capacities, from 1500 to 3500mAh
<lvrp16> KotCzarny are you asking me or talking about something else?
<oneinsect> i was planning something like this F NiMH Flat Top Battery (13000 mAh)
<KotCzarny> lvrp16: asking if that raling stops working when there is 8188cu
<lvrp16> only the 8188eu goes to 0 bandwidth, everything else works fine
<lvrp16> 8188cu does not have the problem

<KotCzarny> totally different charging/discharging reqs
<oneinsect> indeed
<oneinsect> i agree
<KotCzarny> also, it's only 1.2V
<KotCzarny> so you would need 4
<oneinsect> have to a few in series
<oneinsect> indeed
<KotCzarny> in short, single 18650 is fine for the boards
<KotCzarny> 5-20h of usage
<KotCzarny> but those charging circuits in sbc arent very smart, keeping batteries at 100% all the time :/

<lvrp16> is there some magic to get it down to 50ma/100ma?
<lvrp16> idle
<KotCzarny> lvrp16: zeroclock of the arm core and turning other things probably
<lvrp16> whats zeroclock?
<buZz> i guess the nohz ticker?
<lvrp16> like using the onboard risc to turn off the arm cores completely?
<wens> the main oscillator, which drives everything, can be turned off
<KotCzarny> its the state of the device with most clocks turned off and cpu waking every now and then to see if there is work to do
<wens> the cores can be switched to the very slow rtc clock if needed
<lvrp16> thanks wens makes sense
<KotCzarny> which is basically what mobile phones do

<Rambler45> Just wondering if it's the norm for Allwinner boards to arrive with a burnt smell?
<KotCzarny> lol
<Rambler45> it's gone now, was not sure if it cooked up some components.
<Rambler45> ;)
<NiteHawk> Rambler45: if they don't, they're DOA? =)
<maz> Rambler45: customary.
<KotCzarny> might happen in warmer regions i guess
<Rambler45> 17 degrees here
<maz> Rambler45: the delicate taste of baked silicon.
<Rambler45> not that warm
<Rambler45> Burnt smell is kidna nice
<KotCzarny> you never know where that package has been
<Rambler45> I once put RAMs in the opposite way and turned on an old mobo with DDR2
<Rambler45> That smell was the worst electornics burnt smell in my entire life
<KotCzarny> i once connected power in reverse to opipc, it still works
<Rambler45> It was the OPi PC that arrived with burnt smell thoo
<Rambler45> It was all smashed up hardcore, no GPIO pinds bent and worked so.
<Rambler45> Hopefully it survives
<KotCzarny> was it new or second hand?
<KotCzarny> also, pics, or it didnt happen
<Rambler45> New from Xulong
<Rambler45> Ok, give me a sec
<KotCzarny> also, im waiting for opi+2e
<Rambler45> Well, I was thinking about Amlogic CPUs since they are cheap. But without the awesome work of Sunxi what's the point.
<KotCzarny> +2e is going to be quite nice at its price point
<KotCzarny> (unless 35usd is just some marketing scam)
<Rambler45> imgur.com/XkxEGQS
<Rambler45> Well, there is always shipping, VAT and that.
<KotCzarny> no board
<Rambler45> Board was fine like I said
<KotCzarny> but definitely someone had a bad day
<Rambler45> Thanks for using anti-static bags
<KotCzarny> ahm, thought the board was wmashed up
<Rambler45> I said the GPIO pins were not bent so :)
<KotCzarny> yes, just reread it
<KotCzarny> but still, if the board works, pine64 folks should learn the packaging-fu from xunlong ;)
<Rambler45> Most just to ask if it was supposde to smell a bit burned.
<Rambler45> I think just the first models were shipped out badly before they learned to pack them
<Rambler45> I was about to order one but didn't
<Rambler45> I expect it to be stuck on legacy kernel on whatever Allwinner SDK they gave out
<Rambler45> mainly all their marketing BS was annoying me, why are they doing this. Same with Xunlong, whats up with 1.7GHz
<Rambler45> Mainline, haha, "soon" they wrote.
<KotCzarny> at least h3 boards get quite good support in 4.7
tkaiser has joined #linux-sunxi
<KotCzarny> honestly its 1.2, a bit more with good heatsink
<Rambler45> ^ Well, I don't need it for what I'm doing.
<KotCzarny> burning boards?
<lvrp16> i hope they include all the dts for each board as well in 4.7
<Rambler45> H3 is a nice chip, and for my purpose fits perfectly. Only asked about the burnt smell that's all, I have bad exeprience with burnt smells.
<Rambler45> Put three heatsinks on it already
<lvrp16> one, pc, plus, plus 2, plus 2e, bpi m2+
<Rambler45> worked with a nice 47 *C
<KotCzarny> mine is at comfortable 30C
<Rambler45> It's not under load/heatsinks/fan?
<KotCzarny> in idle atm
<lvrp16> burnt smell = baking the bga
<Rambler45> I have their plastic case on it since it looked fancy
<tkaiser> lvrp16: OPi PC Plus, NanoPi M1, OPi Lite?
<KotCzarny> but during compile its ~65-75 (no heatsink)
gzamboni has quit [Ping timeout: 260 seconds]
<lvrp16> tkaiser: you mean those are included?
<tkaiser> lvrp16: No I ask why you excluded them ;)
<Rambler45> lvrp16 nothing to worry about now if it works right?
<Rambler45> I might have done a poor thing, put it on simply paper (the board)
<Rambler45> Just to test it at first
<lvrp16> tkaiser: your german comprehensiveness boggles my simple mind
<Rambler45> KotCzarny yea I saw those 65 degrees too
<lvrp16> tkaiser: i will buy you a beer one of these days when i visit europe
<Rambler45> Doesn't have to throttle that right?
<KotCzarny> not if you fixed dvfs
<tkaiser> longsleep: 'faddah' is using the outdated Arch Linux image the Pine64 folks still provide in their wiki. This has been released one day before you fixed the random MAC address issue
<KotCzarny> otherwise it will run overvolted
<Rambler45> Right, I just tested it out roughly using armbian legacy kernel, so if they fixed dvfs then it's probably right.
<KotCzarny> yes
<KotCzarny> you would easily see 80-90
<KotCzarny> otherwise
<tkaiser> KotCzarny: Please start to accept that all H3 Orange Pis using the SY8106A voltage regulator are able to run at 1.3 GHz perfectly
<lvrp16> tkaiser: who maintains the sunxi dts?
<lvrp16> or device trees in general
<tkaiser> lvrp16: Patches have to be sent to linux-sunxi ML
<KotCzarny> tkaiser: what is the temp without heatsink and under load?
<tkaiser> KotCzarny: No idea, since the whole question is pointless. If I want the device to run fast, I spend the 50 Cent and apply a heatsink
<Rambler45> Should have done a RAM test thoo since I saw the wiki, but there's 22 now.
<KotCzarny> tkaiser, but if you put those settings on a default image, there could be unaware users
<KotCzarny> Rambler45: do it anyway, the more, the merrier
<tkaiser> KotCzarny: Nope, that's what throttling is for. And that's why in Armbian 1296 MHz are the highest clockspeed for most H3 devices
<Rambler45> Heatsinks at the size of the H3 SoC costs nothing
<KotCzarny> i dont want to throttle, either it works stable, or dont
<Rambler45> I bought wholesale ones for $0.3 a piece or so
<KotCzarny> otherwise its just marketing
<tkaiser> The 1200 MHz limit does only apply to OPi Lite, BPi M2+ and NanoP1 M1 due to their different/missing voltage regulator
<KotCzarny> tkaiser: does intel advertise turbo or normal ghz on its cpus?
<tkaiser> KotCzarny: It seems you don't understand throttling at all. Why limiting single threaded speed?
<Rambler45> most of the time sites write out their turbo GHz so it sounds faster
<Rambler45> marketing all over
<KotCzarny> tkaiser: i only know throttling from x86
<lvrp16> KotCzarny: both
<tkaiser> KotCzarny: Discuss this stuff with someone else but please stop to spread wrong information. Most H3 devices run with 1.3Ghz flawlessly, yours not since you have a problem with throttling
<KotCzarny> tkaiser: as i understand throttling it downclocks the cpu for some time, then tries to clock it back when its cooler a bit
<tkaiser> Right, perfect behaviour since this happens only if all CPU cores are really busy
<KotCzarny> but you cant expect 1.3ghz performance if you throttle
<Rambler45> lvrp16 you werent serious about saying the OPi PC burnt smell was the BGA I hope ._.
<KotCzarny> and if one runs cpu transcoding it wont run at 1.3ghz performance
<tkaiser> KotCzarny: Think again about it. Most of the tasks run single threaded, there's no need to adjust max cpufreq to 1.2 Ghz!
<tkaiser> If it gets too hot, throttling does the job, if it stays cool enough, let the CPU run at the highest *reliable working* speed
<lvrp16> Rambler45: they bake it as the last step for the surface mount components so it's the smell of solder
<Rambler45> Ah, I get it, so completely normal
<Rambler45> Thanks
<lvrp16> the smell goes away after they a few months in a warehouse
<lvrp16> yes burnt smell is completely normal, that's the "new" smell of electronics ;)
<Rambler45> Of course they don't do that and pack it in an air-tight bag.
<Rambler45> ;)
<KotCzarny> tkaiser: someone said that to notice any difference there has to be ~50% of speed change, 1.3 is only 10% so hardly noticeable, yet cpu gets hotter than needed. and yes, i know max temp from specs is 125C
<Rambler45> I was surprised to see the OPi PC handling 8-bits HEVC too, was not something I guessed it did.
<lvrp16> lol you two are making castles from potatoes with your exactness
gzamboni has joined #linux-sunxi
<KotCzarny> lets agree to disagree
<Rambler45> KotCzarny, I don't see much point in clocking 0.1 GHz higher, but every little helps.
<Rambler45> as long as the temperature stays right on the SoC with heatsink and/or fan even without there is no issues.
<KotCzarny> well, it's useful in colder climates
<ssvb> KotCzarny: you can load the CPU hard enough to make it throttle even to something lower than 1.2GHz, so what's the point?
<ssvb> KotCzarny: would you prefer it to be marketed as, let's say, 1GHz?
<Rambler45> 9*C right now, I have an AC turned to heat mode last month. Not exactly the warmest place ;)
<Rambler45> ssvb 1 GHz is not good for marketing
<KotCzarny> ssvb: those ghz are apples and oranges anyway
<Rambler45> Allwinner tablets being sold with crack clocks only to throttle like hell
<lvrp16> are you guys seriously discussing this issue or trolling each other? i can't tell honestly
<KotCzarny> but if someone sold you car that can achieve 150HP but you have to install additional coolers, wouldnt you be a bit angry?
<ssvb> KotCzarny: in fact Intel is inventing things like SDP because the TDP numbers don't look attractive enough in the marketing materials :)
<Rambler45> Chinese marketing is scary stuff, they will put the original price to $200 dollars and sell it at a high discount to $15 and whatever means they can.
<Rambler45> What a dirty place
<Rambler45> Most fun is when they put the sales price lwo and shipping $10, you know it's subsidized to be $1
<lvrp16> Shenzhen is like geek heaven
<Rambler45> then again it's the birthplace of gutter oil (shenzhen), fake eggs, fake milk, fake rice noodles, soy sauce made out of hair... Something i the range of this.
<lvrp16> it really puts perspective on ppp
<KotCzarny> in the same way, the board could achieve 1.5ghz, with more cooling and higher voltage
<Rambler45> There is a scary bubble in China and they are all sending money out everywere they can.
khuey|away is now known as khuey
<Rambler45> America blocking it over security concerns like WD shares
<Rambler45> Meanwhile Opera was bought up
<lvrp16> Rambler45: even if that bubble burst, if you account for PPP, it's still by far the largest economy in the world.
<Rambler45> lvrp16, isn't the very fact that the largest economy in the world will burst it's bubble?
<Rambler45> They threw in a lot of money to avoid it.
<oneinsect> i think china is trying even more these days
<oneinsect> to have fabs
<oneinsect> within china
<oneinsect> for everything
<Rambler45> Isn't the very reason Intel and such have avoided fabricating as much in China the fear of getting tech stolen
<lvrp16> tsmc will move to china, the logistics of taiwan are bad for semifabs
<lvrp16> from 2020-2030, most of the fabs will be on the mainland
<tkaiser> KotCzarny: You start to understand, it's about the voltage and not thermal issues. So please accept that 1.3 GHz are pretty fine and that according to your argumentation we have to write 720 MHz max cpufreq to all wiki pages since this might be the maximum when used with cpuburn, no heatsink and in a small enclosure
<Rambler45> issue with mainlan is fun
<Rambler45> I remember people trying to upload SDKs from there
<Rambler45> Unless it's Hong Kong they blocked a lot of communication.
<oneinsect> China has poured US$65.9 billion in the semiconductor sector in the recent one year....
<Rambler45> Chinese company got the IP license from AMD
<KotCzarny> tkaiser: ok, if the voltage is the same for 1.2 and 1.3
<oneinsect> interesting
<Rambler45> They can make their own APU without x86 license
<oneinsect> what comes out of there
<Rambler45> this is going to be fun
<Rambler45> What is the Chinese gov cooking up

<lvrp16> to inhouse the skills, plus a lot of PHDs are chinese students going into the semi industry
<oneinsect> entire eco system ..supply chain
<Rambler45> Well, imagine if they do suceed. Will we get cheap SoCs?
<oneinsect> ofcourse
<KotCzarny> lol, china fearing tech being 'stolen'
<oneinsect> dirt cheap
<lvrp16> China is not a country so much as it's a business ecosystem
<Rambler45> HiKirin, Allwinner, these SoCs sell dirt cheap already.
<Rambler45> HiSilicon*
<lvrp16> nationality to Chinese people is irrelevant
<Rambler45> Well, here we have out-sourcing of IT professionals
<Rambler45> Renting a whole bunch of Indian people over having them work all day for a year
<lvrp16> if you look at capital assets throughout the world, Chinese business people are gobbling it up everywhere
<Rambler45> Truly something
<Rambler45> lvrp16, the money going out of China right now is terrfyingly high.
<Rambler45> Knowing they have this much
<lvrp16> Rambler45, that's irrelevant
<KotCzarny> china ruling model over the who;e world would be a bit terrifying
<KotCzarny> there is a lot of pics about pollution

<Rambler45> Well, in order to make your cheap pants they are willing to dump it all in a lake.
<Rambler45> whatever waste they got
<KotCzarny> erm, wrong link
<lvrp16> China the country is not doing that well, Chinese ownership of capital is exploding
<Rambler45> my own currency took a hit from oil prices
<Rambler45> lvrp16, what exactly do you mean. I thought capital was running out due to the bubble risk
<lvrp16> look at the special things of different demographies around the world, there's a 3/5 chance that the largest ownership of the companies in that specialty are chinese
<lvrp16> outside of automobiles
<Rambler45> HDDs are American, CPUs are mostly American?
<Rambler45> so far that is
<Rambler45> They are doing a good job trying to protect that bit of the industry

<Rambler45> Do I need to have a thermal pad on the SoC to attach a heatsink? Lying it on there probably won't work.
<Rambler45> I seem to recall thermal compound was used between heatsinks and SoC
tkaiser has quit [Ping timeout: 250 seconds]
<KotCzarny> if you can mount it so it wont fall off you can use any thermal compound
tkaiser has joined #linux-sunxi
<KotCzarny> otherwise you are limited to dual sided sticky thermal pads
<KotCzarny> and you can of course run cpu burn and compare
<Rambler45> Well, my idea was that I heard SoCs needed to be covered fully in thermal compound or PC builders would get in trouble
<Rambler45> So you can be generous on the dose as long as its not conductive when it flows over to the PCB
<Rambler45> I wondered if that meant the heatsink wont lead heat away without it
<Rambler45> But it should probably do so, and yeah it helps with keeping it on.
<KotCzarny> it would, but you will have much air without much chance to move
<KotCzarny> which could make things worse
<KotCzarny> you can try running your board vertically
oneinsect has joined #linux-sunxi
<KotCzarny> it will make it cooling by air much more efficient because of convection
<Rambler45> I took their case though
<Rambler45> So air nah
<KotCzarny> add some strategic holes?
<Rambler45> With that said, thanks for the idea! I can use the back mount and hang it up sideways. Will look pretty nice too. Haven't done that with baords before but pretty much all mobos are sideways.
<KotCzarny> and as i also said, measure temps before and after
<Rambler45> You can see the holes the case has on top is pretty much only for GPIO
<KotCzarny> also, you can add 1mm spacers on the screws on one side so there will be free air move
<Rambler45> can use tweezers to put on those heatsinks
reinforce has quit [Quit: Leaving.]
<tkaiser> KotCzarny: Any heatsink is better than convection. Didn't thought that before but by simply measuring the effects it's obvious.
oneinsect has quit [Ping timeout: 250 seconds]
<KotCzarny> tkaiser, good convection is bettor for any config, even for heatsinks
<Rambler45> I think it will be okay with this case and the heatsinks below as per my picture
<KotCzarny> yeah
<tkaiser> KotCzarny: It really doesn't matter that much. You will get 1-2¡C difference based on convection and 10-15¡C using a heatsink (applies to H3 or A64)
<Rambler45> If it gets heat problems can always add thermal compound between the SoC and heatsink hang it up sideways like you suggested. Don't have the spacers
<Rambler45> then again the case probably has a direct impact or does the heat flow through it? I think some kinds of plastic can be good for thermal conductivity to some degree
<KotCzarny> my bet is on air duct config
Andy-D has quit [Ping timeout: 246 seconds]

<Rambler45> wasnt most of the USB adapters on allwinner boards poor?
<Rambler45> what does e stand for
<KotCzarny> two things: 1/ gl830 sucks, 2/ usb ports behind internal bridge suck
<Rambler45> and is this something that will come/is in production?
<KotCzarny> yes
<KotCzarny> in 2 weeks
<Rambler45> Hmm, was it due to nagging Xunlong and does it use H3 SoC?
<KotCzarny> seems so
<Rambler45> Pricing is usually a premium on these because they addded useless modules
<Rambler45> NAND, Wi-Fi which miay not even work on kernel.
IgorPec has joined #linux-sunxi
<KotCzarny> its basically opi+2 uncrippled at places
<Rambler45> Looks nice if it sellls for 35 dollars, was this their own idea or nagging?
<Rambler45> Witht hat said, that eMMC...
<Rambler45> that*
<Rambler45> then a Wi-Fi module too. But yeah, I guess it's still good.
<KotCzarny> i was going to order opi+2, but luckily someone mentioned that this thing is going to be made
<Rambler45> It won't be much work to boot a normal H3 image on it?
<KotCzarny> probably
<Rambler45> I mean, wonderinf if they actually got that Wi-Fi card working, if the eMMC is of decent quality then it is killer at this price.
<KotCzarny> most orange pis are the same boxes
<KotCzarny> with some option added/removed
<jelle> oh 2GB ram
<KotCzarny> yes
<jelle> does mainline support the eMMC well?
<KotCzarny> i think there was some work recently

<jelle> whatever they do, I'm waiting
<KotCzarny> according to mainlining page nothing went into the kernel yet
<Rambler45> Well, if it does drop mainline might be the choice over a RPi 3.
<jelle> well I don't see rpi 3 64 bit support coming soon
<Rambler45> its pretty useless
<Rambler45> at least it has the kerne
<Rambler45> kernel*
<Rambler45> Unified codebase just works like that, a bit marketing here and there too.

<KotCzarny> and i hate symvers, thats why i disable it
<KotCzarny> i mean, mkdir `/lib/modules/uname -r/extra/; find src_dir -type f -iname '*.ko' -exec mv {} /lib/modules/`uname -r`/extra/ \;
<KotCzarny> drat.
<KotCzarny> s/mv/cp/

<oneinsect> KotCzarny:
<oneinsect> one help
<oneinsect> can you check if those are working with the kernel you gave me?
<oneinsect> ko files
<KotCzarny> hmm?
<oneinsect> okie there are some precompiled binaries
<oneinsect> can insmod and check if they are suitable
<oneinsect> i will anyway do it
<KotCzarny> most likely it will shout about bad module format
<KotCzarny> use modinfo to be sure

<KotCzarny> Saving to: 'mt7601Uap.ko'
<plaes> o_O
<KotCzarny> seriously? 8 megs?
<oneinsect> yes
<oneinsect> they are fat
<KotCzarny> does it include own os?
<Rambler45> So I can just scrap that IR idea, saw there was no driver for it and then it probably won't be bothered with?
<plaes> probably :P
<KotCzarny> Rambler45: what? where?
<Rambler45> The OPi PC apperantly had a IR sensor
<KotCzarny> most sunxi boxes do
<Rambler45> I have a mt7601u card, horrible.
<Rambler45> Don't buy it.
<Rambler45> Worst mistake ever ;)
<KotCzarny> he already did
<Rambler45> I use it for cheap though, the newest driver merged into kernel 4 at least when I tested it was not capable of great speeds.
<KotCzarny> vermagic: 3.4.39-02-lobo SMP preempt mod_unload modversions ARMv7 p2v8
<Rambler45> KotCzarny, yeah, I wanted to use it.
<KotCzarny> oneinsect: it wont load, you should recompile kernel or modules, or something
<Rambler45> But I never used IR sensors before and though it might not be supported on the legacy kernel?
tomboy64 has joined #linux-sunxi
<oneinsect> yes
<oneinsect> i see them
<Rambler45> There is nothing in cat /proc/bus/input/devices
<tkaiser> Rambler45: Software is also involved. Which OS image are you using?
<Rambler45> I just laoded up the armbian legacy kernel build to test.
<Rambler45> loaded*
<KotCzarny> modprobe sunxi-ir-rx
<Rambler45> Oh yeah, there it shows up, thanks.
<Rambler45> Didn't think about that
<Rambler45> neither did know the name for that sake
<tkaiser> Rambler45: Hmm... we should add this module to be loaded automatically
<Rambler45> It would be nice automization to be able to execute certain tasks through my phones IR blaster.
<KotCzarny> Rambler45: i prefer radio remotes
<KotCzarny> usb ports be plenty
<KotCzarny> but both work
<Rambler45> Well, there is range to think of yeah.
<KotCzarny> walls
<KotCzarny> :P
<KotCzarny> and if you have wifi just write simple app to call httpd on your box
<KotCzarny> nite!
<Rambler45> of course
<Rambler45> I have two routers that have their LAN synced up

<Rambler45> It will most likely provide a terrible sound stage
<Rambler45> But who knows, with these SoCs meant for tablets might be useable

<longsleep> lennyraposo: i am here now
<lennyraposo> do you mind if I write up about your arch linux image
<lennyraposo> more of a guide tutorial ordeal
<lennyraposo> also
<lennyraposo> I have got a bug reporting system setup
<lennyraposo> to cover all things for the pine
<lennyraposo> it's tied back into the forum
<longsleep> lennyraposo: sure - go ahead
Rambler454 has quit [Ping timeout: 268 seconds]
<lennyraposo> here is where they are reporting now
<lennyraposo> and thanks mate
<lennyraposo> I will also host your image(s) here too
<lennyraposo> and the wiki is going to be cleaned up
<lennyraposo> as they seem to be providing an older build build pre 2gb ethernet fix
<longsleep> lennyraposo: btw, can you improve of your versioning scheme for downloads and docs
<longsleep> lennyraposo: it would be great if you would keep the names of the image files as they are and include version information everywhere
nove has left #linux-sunxi [#linux-sunxi]
staplr has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
<lennyraposo> I certainly can
<lennyraposo> as you knwo it hs been a work in progress
<lennyraposo> right now the downloads sections is manually handled
<lennyraposo> but I want to make it more entry based
<longsleep> lennyraposo: yes, also your rootfs'es they all lack version or date when created, get rid of the bsp version and have your own version number. for my images please use mine and it would be good if you also would host the signature file so people can validate that these are indeed images from me
<lennyraposo> that's for my next image release
<lennyraposo> and I have been using your images for BSP kernel ;)
<lennyraposo> all scripts included too
<lennyraposo> except for your last creation the fix everythign one
<lennyraposo> can do mate
<lennyraposo> I will make the necessary changes

<lennyraposo> hey longsleep
<lennyraposo> so what I am doing is simply this
<lennyraposo> download url or torrent url
<lennyraposo> it's file size
<lennyraposo> and md5 or gpg signature
<lennyraposo> plus a description (details etc)
<lennyraposo> moderators/administrators/developers will be able to add them to the downloads page with ease once I am done
<lennyraposo> coding it
<lennyraposo> and they are dated too ;)
<lennyraposo> also added a download counter too
<lennyraposo> once done
<lennyraposo> I will be able to tie into the forum once again
<lennyraposo> and have a general all image download thread
<lennyraposo> pplus direct tie in to Wiki too
<lennyraposo> I will let you know when it is up and running mate
<lennyraposo> and I can issue you an account for managing your entries ;)
<lennyraposo> have to extend it to others too
