egbert: rmh3093: i'm here now ;)
H264: anything interesting going on?
chrisime: egbert: hi, around?
libv: chrisime: not in the next hour or so
libv: chrisime: what's up
libv: michaellarabel: morning :)
michaellarabel: Good afternoon
chrisime: libv, hey there
chrisime: libv, got some probs with my 689G chipset
chrisime: xorg won't start
libv: oh, i almost thought ATI had another chipset marketing name out ;p
chrisime: naah ;)
chrisime: you know, these xpress 12xx gfx
chrisime: seems like neither xor
chrisime: xorg-ati 6.8.0 nor radeonhd-git are working
chrisime: fglrx is the only driver that works
libv: chrisime: what is the error message in our log?
chrisime: give me a sec
chrisime: i have to power up the board
chrisime: libv, aah, btw, it's a kontron board: see http://de.kontron.com/index.php?id=226&cat=61&productid=664
libv: chrisime: so it has DACA, DACB, DDIA and LVTMA in use...
libv: cool board.
chrisime: got an evaluation sample
libv: DDIA is the TMDSA of rs690... we uncovered only recently that it was used, ati never told us about it before
chrisime: what's TMDSA
libv: chrisime: does it come up when you attach just the vga connector?
chrisime: and what's DDIA
libv: tmds is the signalling used in dvi
chrisime: i could try
libv: ddia is the equivalent block for rs6xx
chrisime: just a moment
chrisime: libv, lemme recompile it
chrisime: i just re-installed the system yesterday
chrisime: libv, are you one of the core devels of radeonhd?
michaellarabel: chrisime: yes, libv is one of the lead devs on it.
chrisime: that's nice
chrisime: ok, i've attached the vga cable now
chrisime: let me try
chrisime: libv, seems to work
chrisime: the thing is, somehow, the vga connector behaves weirdly atm
rmh3093: egbert, u still around
chrisime: the picture is totally distorted
chrisime: already at boot time
chrisime: things the cable is broken
libv: chrisime: hrm... even in console? yeah, try to find a different cable or something
chrisime: libv, i dunno
chrisime: it should work
chrisime: ok, it looks like vga is working
chrisime: dvi won't
libv: right, dvi is ddia
chrisime: is there anything to make it work
libv: egbert is still working on that one
libv: chrisime: yes, there is something; it's called the egbert driver developer model 1.0 :p
chrisime: wait for v1.0 ?
chrisime: hates his monitor
libv: chrisime: the egbert unit will be returning shortly ;p
libv: chrisime: i have no idea how far along he is with ddia on his rs690 board
chrisime: still clueless
chrisime: i c
libv: but i thought he had something going already, not sure whether it is good enough to go public already
Death_Syn: i need to find an rs690 with ddia
libv: Death_Syn: egbert has the asus board
Death_Syn: good to know
libv: Death_Syn: and this is where he discovered the new digital block :)
Death_Syn: i'm looking to build a media centre, and I figure rs690 would be good to start with until I can afford a nice card for it
chrisime: odd resolution
libv: chrisime: 720x400 would be 9pixels wide characters on 80x25 text mode
libv: Death_Syn: the asus board is a micro atx, so it is not easy to find nice small cases for that
chrisime: last week it worked, but i had a crt monitor
chrisime: libv the chipset on the board is called m690t. are there any differences?
chrisime: i've the full log if you need it
libv: chrisime: can you subscribe to our mailinglist?
libv: chrisime: once the ddia code is ready, it will be pushed to the repository, and there will be a commit mail to the mailing list
libv: chrisime: this will hopefully solve your problem
chrisime: oh well, i unsubcribed from 30 last year. i think i can subscribe to one...
chrisime: libv, i'm sort of reading the ML offline, but ok, why not
libv: chrisime: if not, get back to us :)
chrisime: nah, will do that now
chrisime: libv, done
libv: chrisime: thanks :)
michaellarabel: libv: Have you guys any docs or pre-production hardware on the 780G (launched today)?
egbert: chrisime: i got your email - was gone for a while.
egbert: i was looking for the board you've got. couldn't find it anywhere. same with the albatron one - which i would have preferred.
egbert: rmh3093: yeah, i'm now ;)
chrisime: hi egbert
egbert: hi chrisime! i need your bios.
egbert: chrisime: and a log file.
chrisime: egbert: uff
chrisime: atom bios
egbert: chrisime: you remember libv, btw?
egbert: he was along when we took you to the clinic :p
chrisime: have we met?
chrisime: which clinuc
egbert: actually you wanted to go to the rr station.
egbert: but we ended up at the bodenseeclinic.
egbert: libv was the other guy in the car.
egbert: libv and i still make fun of why we took you to the clinic :pp
egbert: chrisime: where did you get the eval board from?
egbert: chrisime: for dumping the bios: please use rhd_conntest with the -d option.
chrisime: egbert: uff, i have to boot linux then, running windows on it atm
egbert: chrisime: let's ask more precisely: what did you have to do to get it?
chrisime: i couldn't resist
egbert: chrisime: we don't do no driver for windows ;)
chrisime: but the board works nicely under linux
chrisime: everything works as expected
chrisime: except the device drivers, but fglrx works fine for now
chrisime: egbert: arghs, which package do i need for rhd_conntest
chrisime: it needs pci.h
chrisime: i thought it'd be in libpciaccess
chrisime: egbert: hmm, it should there be an output?
chrisime: egbert: got it
chrisime: egbert: want it via email?
libv: chrisime: ah, hi btw :)
libv: chrisime: still on gnome development?
chrisime: i think i need a photo, coz I still don't know who you are :P
chrisime: libv, nah
egbert: libv: he's using windows.
chrisime: right *g*
chrisime: gnome sucked too much ;)
chrisime: egbert: i've got the log now
egbert: chrisime: ok, how about the bios?
egbert: chrisime: can you email me both?
libv: egbert: understandable... after an operation like that one suddenly uses all abilities to work a linux system
libv: loses even
libv: on a
chrisime: egbert: sec, fon
libv: urgh, don't speak and type at the same time
egbert: libv: yeah, we figured that already when we dropped him off, didn't we? :pp
egbert: that's why he never showed up for linuxday the year after.
chrisime: egbert: how about the bios?
chrisime: what do you still need? i just got the output of the tool
chrisime: egbert: you got mail :P
egbert: with -d you should also get a dump of the bios when you use the tool.
chrisime: i did
egbert: ok, thx!
chrisime: hmm, GPIO nice
chrisime: what can I do with it
rmh3093: egbert, hey!
egbert: rmh3093, hi!
egbert: rmh3093: libv and i have been looking into your problem. we have ideas what it could be - but no code, yet.
rmh3093: did u get that message about the regular dvi monitor working
egbert: rmh3093: yeah, we talked about it on saturday.
egbert: rmh3093: are you sure it was on a freshly booted system?
dvandyk: agd5f: say, is the AMD Firestream R5xx based?
michaellarabel: The FireStream is R580-based.
H264: so how is the driver going along?
