mithrotumbleweed: I think Ryan has an Opsis here which reproduces the problem with the fx2 reset03:56
mithrotumbleweed: BTW - Were are we at with packaging the modeswitch tool?04:52
mithrodeeprave: xfxf says you've done a bunch more work on the serial daemon thingy?04:53
mithrotumbleweed: I think I figured out your bug and it wasn't actually related to the fx2 at all....06:26

xfxfCarlFK: do you have your netboot config/stuff anywhere you use for 16.04 images w/ your newer scripts?07:41
xfxfi'm working on it myself, but i just realized i'm probably repeating what you've already done07:41

mithrotumbleweed: ping me when you are around08:15
mithrorohitksingh: Was it this weekend you are at the retreat thing?08:15
rohitksinghmithro: I'm free but not in office. So won't have access to any hardware. I have my laptop with me, and my atlys board plus few other FPGA boards (zybo, saturn and arty) right now with me08:17
mithrorohitksingh: I'm currently working on a couple of small things for PyCon AU08:18
mithrorohitksingh: regarding the vga stuff we should just add it as part of the _video target08:20
rohitksinghmithro: ohkay. I can work on merging vga stuff. And the components to add? 2x HDMI-iI, 2x HDMI-Out, encoder, vga, and pattern, right? (and no eth phy + mac)08:22
mithrorohitksingh: Hrm? Your just adding an extra vga target to the existing targets?08:23
mithroI mean, a vga option to the existing atlys_video target?08:24
rohitksinghmithro: we need to remove ethernet, which comes from Minisoc class in base target...atlys_video inherits that08:26
mithrorohitksingh: so, the XXX_video target can already choose which thing it inherits from08:28

mithrorohitksingh: actually, it looks like we don't build ethernet by default anyway....08:30
rohitksinghmithro: okay you are saying that I modify the atlys_video target itself. I initially thought, you wanted me to subclass atlys_video...08:31
mithrorohitksingh: Yeah, I think so08:31
rohitksinghmithro: great08:32

CarlFKhiya mithro13:55
mithroCarlFK: You where at some event recently?13:56
mithroCarlFK: with tumbleweed?13:57
CarlFKmithro: more than I can count..13:57
mithroCarlFK: Between Debconf and now?13:57
CarlFKer, tweed just 1.. me in the last 8 weeks: Write the Docs, Node PDX, OpenCamps, dot Net Fringe, PyGotham, PyOhio13:58
CarlFKtween at PyOhio13:58
mithroCarlFK: and you used Atlys boards at all of them?14:01
CarlFKmix of Atlys and Opsis14:01
CarlFKer.. and none.14:01
CarlFKOpenCamps/PyGotham at UN had their own screen capture stuff and gave me 1080i over sdi which is where I got the audio from, so used that for screen too14:02
CarlFKthe one venue system that does what you want it to do14:03
xfxfCarlFK: poke. did you see my message to you earlier before you quit re your PXE scripts (particularly for 16.04?14:05
xfxfalso, should i be using/altering your ingest script in your repo, or something else?14:05
CarlFKxfxf: didn't see anyting about pxe... guessing IRC which is not a good way to get messages to me asynchronously ... get my attention first.  otherwise email14:07
CarlFKingest in my repo is 'top'14:08

xfxfCarlFK: can you point me exactly to what i should be altering my PXE install server with, in terms of stuff you use now?14:11
xfxffrom looking through the PXE stuff today i assume this is copied off the machine you use to image up your machines?14:11
CarlFKxfxf: it is kinda a copy from some point in the near past..   I edit the live server and sometimes get the stuff into my git repo14:13
CarlFKxfxf: give me a sec and I'll update it14:13
CarlFKgithub will show you the diffs14:14
CarlFKxfxf: how soon do you expect to start building machines with it?14:14
mithroCarlFK: I got the front panel IO header working on the Opsis board, so you can get status and reset it using the case14:15
mithroCarlFK: I think the answer is "about 12 hours ago" :P14:15
xfxfCarlFK: i am right now and i've already got most of a 16.04 install working, but i figured i'd ask you as well14:15
CarlFKxfxf: um.. it should just work..14:16
CarlFKI happened to use it to bring up 4 more machines about 3 weeks ago14:16
CarlFKxfxf:  any point in me getting my repo up to date?14:17
CarlFKwell. any point in me scrambling today14:17
xfxfif it's not something you can throw up easily, probably not14:19
xfxfi'm mostly through it, just solving some issues with late.sh14:19
xfxfand trying to get it to install mode-switch14:19
CarlFKyeah.. some stuff is crufty, like I install the black magic driver .deb14:19
CarlFKwhich means you need to get it, make sure the tar file name is right (changes with driver version...14:20
xfxfIIRC the version i have predates you doing that14:32
xfxfthis is from what you + tumbleweed did back at LCA201614:32
CarlFKxfxf: you should use my current stuff14:40
CarlFKbut oh well14:40
xfxfso upload it :P14:40
xfxfi'll figure out what needs altering14:40
CarlFK(09:15:18 AM) xfxf: if it's not something you can throw up easily, probably not14:41
xfxfalso to make this more fun the SSD this was all on seemed to corrupt itself14:41
xfxfso i had to install it all from scratch and copy over the files14:41
xfxfbut that was relatively straight forward14:41
CarlFKum.. I have an install script14:41
CarlFKthat is described in the readme14:41
xfxfoh i have all the stuff from LCA, just the OS itself was corrupt14:41
xfxfall of the pxe/http/etc bits were fine14:41
CarlFKum.. you arn't making much sense now14:42
xfxfthe filesystem on the avserver got corrupt, it wouldn't boot14:42
xfxfi took a backup of it and installed 16.04 onto it on a newer SSD14:42
xfxfthen reinstalled all of the packages, pushed relevant bits from the backup back in (config for dhcp, nginx, squid, etc etc), put all of the files in /var/www/html/ back in, various symlinks, etc14:43
xfxfappears to be working, just installation dies near the end because something isn't quite right, fix that, try install again14:43
CarlFKxfxf: do you need help?14:45
xfxfunless you can upload what you currently use, probably not14:46
xfxfthe issues i hit are obvious, it'd just be shortcutted by using a working config14:46
