<rellla> morning
<rellla> i think it'd be a good idea to use willswangs libcedarx in vlc AND xbmc. base at least 2 apps on a commom lib. then we can improve libcedarx and make it partially use RE'ed code for the codecs done. what do you think?
<oliv3r> benn yes/noo
iamfrankenstein has joined #linux-sunxi
iamfrankenstein has quit [Excess Flood]
<oliv3r> benn`: the BROM cannot boot from sata on any platform yet
<oliv3r> benn`: BUT, we are working with olimex to add an SPI-NOR flash rom which can contain u-boot (+kernel) and in that situations, you can have your rootfs on sata
<oliv3r> the next step will then be to add sata support to u-boot and have u-boot load the kernel from sata, but i'm having trouble in getting the sata driver to work and no time the next to weeks
<oliv3r> rellla: i think that's not a bad idea, xbmc + vlc are the most common usages of libcedarx NOW. Once the rewrite starts, we can make things better

<balage> arokux1, good morning again. I have some good news. Tested my Hackberry A10 on sunxi-3.4 with an externally powered USB hub and it worked!
hipboi has joined #linux-sunxi
<balage> arokux1, plugged in usb stick and a webcam and both (including the hub itself) got recognized in dmesg and lsusb, stick's led light up
<balage> arokux1, so it definitely has something to do with powering the usb buses or something like that. do you need the usuall logs?
wingrime has joined #linux-sunxi
steev has quit [Ping timeout: 245 seconds]

<ccube> oliv3r, wingrime i got an answer of our hardware developer....... we’ve just discovered that in Olimex revision change from C to D they changed the DDR serial resistors from 22 Ohm to 0 Ohm. Of course we used the last version from the GitHub. The consequence is that we also have 0 Ohm serial resistors on the board. At the moment we are working on exchanging the resistors.
benn``` has joined #linux-sunxi
<balage> arokux1, no unfortunatelly I have not
<balage> arokux1, do you have any idea where to look for the cause?
<arokux1> balage: I know what is supposed to turn on the power supply to the USB ports.
benn`` has quit [Ping timeout: 260 seconds]
<arokux1> balage: lines 733 and 743 ---^
<oliv3r> ccube: maybe talk to olimex? you could have let them make a board for you ;)
<arokux1> balage: I do not know of any changes in the kernel that broken this. the newest kernel also works for my board, for example and turns on the power correctly.
<ccube> oliv3r, do they make custom designs?
<arokux1> ccube: yes, that is even the core of their business model
<arokux1> ccube: talk to Tsvetan - the guy from Olimex
<ccube> thanx guys! :)
<arokux1> balage: it is something subtle that comes into way.. can you try to disable usbc0 (this is USB OTG) in fex? https://github.com/linux-sunxi/sunxi-boards/blob/master/sys_config/a10/hackberry.fex#L718
Black_Horseman has quit [Quit: Zwi se logou mou!!!]
<arokux1> balage: just set usb_used to 0 at line 719, and rebuild your fex by fex2bin. no need to recompile the kernel. but make sure you are using the correct script.bin.

<Tsvetan> ccube A20 do not need resistors, A10 does as the board is universal for both A10/A20 we had to put these resistors and they are 0 ohm when assembly A20
<arokux1> hm... $80 with 7" inch LCD? http://www.merrii.com/en/pla_d.asp?id=165
<balage> arokux1, probably I could do it at the weekend. Do you know any next steps? I am asking this, because If I troubleshoot it then I can do more things, this would shorten the time needed for running troubleshooting cycles.

<arokux1> balage: I see. I'll write a patch tonight which will output some more debugging information. do you have an e-mail, so that we can also communicate per our mailing list?
<arokux1> balage: thank you very much for testing this stuff, now that we know it is power issue I hope we will find the reason!
<arokux1> balage: another thing.. do you happen to have a multimeter to measure voltage?
<benn```> oliver: get it, thanks
<oliv3r> ccube: olimex makes whatever you want I suppose ;) talk to them :)
<arokux1> benn```: are you the same Benn? :)
<oliv3r> benn```: your welcome ;) hopefully we see more hardware that can do SPI-NOR boot, even if only the SPL and u-boot fit into it (< 512 kB) we could get sata/usb boot easily, the SPI-nor would be a 'bios' of sorts
<arokux1> oliv3r: and then no need for mmc cards?! yay!
<oliv3r> ccube: Tsvetan is from olimex, just ask your question ;)
<oliv3r> arokux1: yeah IF we can make it work, we have zero SPI boot code atm, we need to RE the BROM, but that won't be hard it's not a lot of code imo, and we know how SPI works
<arokux1> oliv3r: maybe AW will help us.
<balage> arokux1, yes I can subscribe to the mailings list, should I post a new topic about the issue or...? Unfortunately I don't have a multimeter :(
<oliv3r> arokux1: no need really
<oliv3r> arokux1: but it could make things a little easier, we'd need to know which SPI pins are tried to be booted by default for example, the docs are unclear if it's a fixed pinmux (likly) or not
<arokux1> balage: no, you do not need to post anything. I'd like to send you the patch, once ready. making it public will help the others with the same issue. you could just give me your e-mail (in private) and then i'll post to the mailing list and cc you.
<benn```> arokux1: yes
<arokux1> benn```: nice to meet you!

benn```` has joined #linux-sunxi
<benn````> oliv3r: It seem SPI-NOR really useful for mini ARM PC. So that we can boot from SSD
<arokux1> hm.. how do you normally flash spi-nor? by booting from mmc?
<benn````> oliv3r: I've add SPI-NOR to A80-Cubieboard spec
<oliv3r> benn````: yeah I agree, that's why we started exploriing it; but we don't know yet which pins/pinmux spi-nor needs to be connected to
<oliv3r> benn````: but since you are developing the board, you can ask AW the details ;)

<arokux1> interesting to know.

<aep> this one is supposed to be professional grade
<aep> which would be 48k, but well
<benn`> oliv3r: thanks, my host pc crash just now when I am using livesuit :<
<oliv3r> benn`: hehe, livesuit :(
<oliv3r> benn`: anyhow, if you manage to poke AW on which pins SPI-NOR needs to be connected for the BROM to boot from, that'd be great; then you know which pins you need to connect a SPI-nor too
<oliv3r> maybe we can even connect one to the cb1 and cb2 for testing
<ccube> Tsvetan, oliv3r I am just the developer... But I will investigate why we do not develop our board with olimex directly.
<balage> arokux1, okay, I sent my email in private chat
<benn`> oliv3r: Many guys from allwinner only use windows livesuit, so I think programming to SPI NOR still an issue for us
Guest77920 has quit [Ping timeout: 265 seconds]
Soru has joined #linux-sunxi
<oliv3r> benn`: you can add a 1M spi-nor to the board, and don't use it, you can market it as 'Lokal SPI flash for various uses'!
<oliv3r> benn`: once we get proper support in, we can make writing SPI flash very easy, you can probably do it from linux/android
<oliv3r> probaly = surely :p
Soru_ has quit [Ping timeout: 265 seconds]
<oliv3r> benn`: i bet livesuit can't even program SPI-nor; but that's ok, we can program it from FEL mode and from linux/android in due time; need hardware support first
<oliv3r> benn`: but we need to know which pins the BROM will boot SPI from. We can reverse engineer and debug the BROM dump, but official word from AW makes that much easier and faster
<benn`> oliv3r: get it

<focus> hi - what speed difference between aramel and hf? - the linaro ubuntu hf distro is gone from linaro web site and the only replacement i can locate is an aramel (software float point) version
<focus> this is the desktop distro
<focus> (the others such as alip are still available)
<oliv3r> depends on the usage of floats; the kernel and u-boot prohibit float usage, so it won't matter for those two
<focus> oliv3r - so its only excel users? the os booting and display functions not affected?
<oliv3r> excel lol; yeah only GUI users that might be affected
<focus> I appologize - windoosh has infused me with words i know no meaning of now - i meant libreoffice calc :)
<bfree> libv: afaik there is no gpg key for packages.linux-sunxi.org (and the empty debian repo there isn't signed). probably best to be thinking of how to have it so a couple of people can sign it from the start for bus-factor!=1 (share a key or put a couple into a package e.g. linux-sunxi-archive-keyring)
<oliv3r> focus: 'spreadsheet users' would have been more agnostic :)

<arokux1> EGM: what?! I have another case where USB isn't working on Hackberry because the power isn't turned on!
<arokux1> EGM: are you still there?
<oliv3r> oluwafemi: there's many different factors that will get in your way, there's touchscreens that vary greatly, battery parameters in script.bin, different memory configurations for the bootloader

mouchon has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
<arokux1> EGM: just to clarify: so works for Hackberry, where as with 3.4.43-r2 no USB devices will be detected?
<arokux1> EGM: some GPIOs are poked to enable power supply to the USB ports.
<EGM> arokux1: Right, it works on Hackberry with r1, and it's completely broken with r2
<arokux1> focus: why they decided to close done their linaro-rootfses?
<arokux1> EGM: this is very good input! thanks.
<arokux1> EGM: in the mean time as a workaround you can use a powered external hub and connect your USB devices to it.

<oliv3r> oluwafemi: i run christian troy's image on my tablet, works okayish, not great
<EGM> arokux1: Oh, good idea. Unfortunately I won't be able to tell if its working then. Because I currently use USB hub as workaround (kernel detects disconnect of device from hub, but not disconnect of hub from board)
<arokux1> EGM: with Hackberry there shouldn't be any disconnect issues.
<EGM> arokux1: So you're saying it's A20 problem only<
<EGM> ?
<arokux1> EGM: yes, looks like this.

<Tsvetan> I do remember when I installed Debian for very first time and it asked me if I want the installation to be only with open source free software, I said yes and it didnt install any video drivers
<WarheadsSE> Thats like people asking me how to contact me outside IRC. .. uhm, . lmgtfy
<mnemoc> a blob *linked* to the kernel, is a violation
<Tsvetan> mnemoc ok
<mnemoc> Tsvetan: all those "drivers" are like mali's and cedarx. userspace libs
<Tsvetan> I still mix these kernel/user space thingos
<oliv3r> Tsvetan: that's because the propriatary blob is well, propriatary :)
<Tsvetan> so had to re-install as the performance was terrible :))
<Tsvetan> WarheadsSE you are very well covered at one time I also was trying to scrap your e-mail but it´s not public, neither in GitHub etc
<WarheadsSE> Ah
<WarheadsSE> its easy to find :P

<WarheadsSE> its even possible to just track down my gravitar.
<oliv3r> Tsvetan: you could have just installed fglrx or whatever video driver you needed; but it sounds that this was eons ago, then again even the new opensource radeon driverse, which work really well, require propriatry firmware, which debian in 'pure free mode' won't install by default ;)

<rm> what's with people's fixation on ubuntu...
<libv> rm: what's with you never letting other people be when they are doing something constructive?
<libv> rm: but feel free to do all this work for $your_preferred_distribution
<ssvb> libv: are the patched mesa sources already available somewhere?
<libv> now, let's see what one of my sunxi machines thinks of this
<libv> ssvb: there is a .diff.gz there :)
<ssvb> libv: ok, thanks
<libv> but yeah, i will be sticking the resulting tree on github soon
<libv> i will first try to get to the raring version of mesa
<oliv3r> ubuntu is shit, canaconical is fucking it over; that said, it's the 'defacto' distro atm, it's the most popular and most used. that alone makes it a very good primary platform to support (i have it on my laptop :p)
<oliv3r> and my gf's desktop!
<libv> oliv3r: don't feed the troll :)
<oliv3r> i always fall for that one :(
<rm> I prefer unmutilated debian
<rm> and you please enjoy your Crapunity, search spyware, and soon mandatory Mir
<ssvb> libv: hmm, how can I find this diff.gz file?
<rm> eat shit with big spoons in both hands, so to say
<oliv3r> ah but i don't run unity on any of them ;)
<libv> ssvb: it really is just 5 small patches, on top of some debian/ changes
<libv> ssvb: but please let me deal with one thing at a time :)
<libv> ssvb: ah, we should look into debianizing your sunxifb driver as well
<ssvb> libv: I would be happy to just build mesa right now :)
<libv> i hope that we do not run into the issues i had back in like 2006, where x package names had diverged between debian and ubuntu, iirc, that was fixed like a year later
<libv> but in my long bitrotten unichrome driver, it was one debian/ to rule them all
<ssvb> are you sure the patches are really uploaded there? there is a bunch of .deb files and I'm a bit lost
<libv> the diff.gz applies to the orig.tar.gz
<libv> when checked out
<libv> let me just stick the individual patches for 9.0.3 in my sunxi ~
<libv> heh, where does that live anyway?
<libv> ssvb: let me mail you a tarball instead
<libv> ssvb: but there really is no lima driver included in any of this
<libv> it's patches to allow running against an external shader compiler, and build system changes to allow for external drivers
<ssvb> libv: I would prefer a direct url, this would make it easier for packaging (no need to mirror it somewhere)
deasy has quit [Quit: Nom d'un quark, c'est Edmonton !]
<libv> what are you currently looking to package?
<libv> because currently i am only compatible with mesa 9.0 (and its point releases)
<ssvb> the modified mesa, as an alternative to the primary mesa package used in the distro
Seppoz has joined #linux-sunxi
Tmblerdor has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
<libv> i intend to end up being compatible with precise and with debian stable versions of mesa, and the latest versions of mesa. but that is a bit of still
<libv> goal #1 is to get the current version of lima working againt the mesa packages of raring as well
<ssvb> libv: this should be pretty easy in gentoo, they already have 'mesa' and 'opengl-apple' to select from - http://sources.gentoo.org/cgi-bin/viewvc.cgi/gentoo-x86/virtual/opengl/opengl-7.0.ebuild?revision=1.16&view=markup
<libv> ssvb: is that mesa?
<libv> ssvb: stop confusing me even further :p
<ssvb> libv: gentoo is a rather flexible distro, I can easily change between different versions of mesa, proprietary drivers, etc.
<wingrime> libv: maybe make some pseudo-source-pakage that will only apply-patches on exsisting dev- package and build/install?
<ssvb> libv: having another mesa variant should be very easy an painless to add
<libv> ssvb: ok
<libv> wingrime: ...
<libv> wingrime: i am providing packages for certain ubuntu versions atm
<libv> wingrime: because these all need rather extensive changes
<libv> wingrime: the 9.0 mesa versions so far needed little changes on the mesa side of things
<libv> but this does not immediately apply to the 9.1.4 mesa from raring
<libv> so "just provide the packages" simply does not work
<libv> err, patches
<wingrime> ubuntu so heavy even for my pc , I have not even tryed use it on sunxi
<ssvb> wingrime: what distro are you using?
Soru has quit [Read error: No route to host]
<wingrime> ssvb: debian stable
<ssvb> libv: geeks tend to stay away from ubuntu, that's pretty normal :)
<ssvb> libv: but they also can usually take care of themselves
<libv> ssvb: for being so selfsufficient, they aren't half whiny
soul has joined #linux-sunxi
<wingrime> ubuntu usualy same debian with nice face
<ssvb> wingrime: which version of mesa is currently used in debian?
<libv> last i looked, debian stable has mesa between ubuntu lts and quantal
<libv> but... in time.
<libv> this is not something i pull out of a hat
<libv> i do not wave my magic wand and things happen
<wingrime> libgl1-mesa-dev,mesa-common-dev 8.0.5-4+deb7u2
<libv> so stfu for now, and give me time to bring things up to scratch.
<ssvb> wingrime: I guess having mesa 9.0.x would be surely more convenient
<libv> 00:20 < libv> i intend to end up being compatible with precise and with debian stable versions of mesa, and the latest versions of mesa. but that is a bit of still
eebrah|noPC has joined #linux-sunxi
<wingrime> ssvb: I prefer stay stable (not mixing branches)
<ssvb> wingrime: and I prefer being able to have a choice and decide myself what is 'stable' for me :)
<ssvb> wingrime: btw, does debian provide mplayer with vdpau support out of the box?
<atsampson> ssvb: Debian stable's mplayer is linked against libvdpau, so I guess so
<wingrime> ssvb: mplayer -vo help show vdpau
<wingrime> ssvb: Failed to open VDPAU backend libvdpau_nvidia.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
<wingrime> ssvb: I currently on intel video
<wingrime> ssvb: fully comes with my demands
<ssvb> wingrime: ok, that's good to know
<wingrime> ssvb: unstable can be very stable ) but I afrad lose time to get what is broken agian and how to fix it

<libv> i have added a link at the top of the Software block on the front page, not sure where else this should go
<libv> and es2gears looks good.
<Turl> libv: make sure you bump the version number so you don't need to reinstall
<libv> now for the newer version of the packages...
<libv> Turl: bump which version number?
<wingrime> libv: where you use gles in practice, I have no installed mali binaries, I have no idea where I can it use ....
<Turl> libv: the one on your changelog entry in the packages
<libv> Turl: i have added an appendage, but this does not seem to satisfy that
<Turl> libv: can you paste it?
<libv> Turl: apart from libgl1-mesa-dri, libgl1-mesa-dri-dbg, libgl1-mesa-dri-dev, these packages are fully compatible with the ubuntu packages
<libv> so currently, since libgl1-mesa-dri-dev does not exist anywhere else, installing libgl1-mesa-dri-dev does the right thing
<libv> as it pulls in those two other packages
<libv> we can have a discussion about the naming of these packages later on though :)
<Turl> libv: I see you added "sunxi0"
<libv> mesa_9.0-0ubuntu1sunxi0.dsc
<libv> yes
<libv> 9.0 are the old packages though, the current version is 9.0.3
<libv> and i am only now uploading them
<libv> there are some driver side changes needed for that, which i have handled already
<libv> but this way i can see how upgrading works
<libv> urgh. "deleting and forgetting?"
<libv> :(
<Turl> $ dpkg --compare-versions 9.0-0ubuntu1 "lt" 9.0-0ubuntu1sunxi0; echo $?
<Turl> 0
<Turl> (0 means success)
<libv> strangely i needed to set preferences
<Gerwin_J> Mali-400 is powerful enough for 4k video?
<libv> Gerwin_J: not the one on sunxi
<wingrime> Turl: same for you , where you use mali?
<libv> ah, but that is probably due to 9.0.3 versus 9.0
<libv> i am unhappy with the files vanishing though
<libv> they should go from the Sources and Packages files, but not from the repo
<Gerwin_J> i saw this… 4k TV with mali-400 GPU http://shop.tcl.com/ProductDetail/index/id/4898.html#detail_main
<Turl> wingrime: I do not use mali atm
<wingrime> Turl: same for me
<libv> ah, option "keepunreferencedfiles"
<wingrime> libv: where we can use it, there not much linux soft that use gles....
<libv> wingrime: good for you
<wingrime> My hopes only about SDL 2.0
<Gerwin_J> Third tab "参数与配件"
<wingrime> libv: or you point to fully opensource android for sunxi ?
<wingrime> Gerwin_J: there HW decoder , not mali
<popolon> wingrime, not totally true
<wingrime> popolon: ?
<Turl> libv: does lima+mesa get us OpenGL or just GLES?
<popolon> there are some efforts to port open source software to OpenGL ES
<libv> atm just glesv2
<popolon> due to popularity of android
<libv> but when the compiler is the free one, we should be able to go broader
<wingrime> popolon: SDL2.0
<popolon> do if linux software is ported to GLES2
<Turl> libv: great
<popolon> about waht you say about gles
<libv> Turl: the really great thing is though, that you do not have to worry much anymore about having binaries which are compatible with the kernel
<libv> i just work around the kernel version at runtime.
<Turl> :)
<popolon> gles isn't GL ES ?
<Turl> libv: what about the mem allocator?
<libv> it should Just Work, or i need to fix something :)
<libv> Turl: what about it?
<libv> Turl: you mean ump?
<Turl> libv: some sunxi devices use UMP, others ION, others some samsung thing
<Turl> s/sunxi/mali/
<libv> Turl: that is handled by the xf86 driver on sunxi
<libv> i can and will fix things as they pop up
<Turl> awesome
<libv> so far, it's been ump against sunxifb
<libv> which means ump
<wingrime> Turl: better put much effort in disp mainline
<libv> err, which means ump is total bs, doing several things at once here...
<ssvb> Turl: are android mali devices all using different mem allocators?
<ssvb> Turl: for mali400
<libv> on android, i never had to deal with ump, i got to deal with "external" addresses
<ssvb> Turl: what exactly is used for sunxi on android?
<Turl> ssvb: I'm pretty sure some samsung phones with mali do not use UMP
* ssvb tries to look into sunxi gralloc sources
<Turl> ssvb: at least on the SDKs I worked with, they used UMP with ARM's gralloc pretty much unmodified
<Turl> the one you can get on malideveloper
wingrime has quit [Ping timeout: 240 seconds]
<ssvb> yes, the sunxi android gralloc seems to use ump
<libv> that is starting to look more like it
<ssvb> Turl: so there is a lot of NIH activity happening even inside android?
<Turl> ssvb: UMP is a product of ARM's NIH in a way :)
<ssvb> Turl: yes, but it is always possible to make it even worse :)
