[00:51:17] gary_buhrmaster: stichnot: While that is funny, as I recall, on the IBM 5150 keyboard, it was not possible for people to hit C-A-D with a single hand. I believe the differently able were very unhappy with that.
[00:56:37] gary_buhrmaster: stichnot: Eventually, even with keyboard enhancements (a C-A on the right side), there were still issues for those with physical challenges. It was one of the reasons for "sticky keys" (which I still occasionally get "stuck" on :-)

[08:14:35] stuarta: jya_: i've not done it, but i'm guessing it would be the usual, get/build a cross compile tool chain, then libs, then build app
[08:37:29] stuartm_ is now known as stuartm
[08:39:26] stuartm: gary_buhrmaster: and it was a very good job that he was 'stuck' with C-A-D, the idea of a single key on the keyboard to reboot seems like the single worst idea possible
[08:41:05] stuartm: C-A-D was originally meant to be C-A-Esc but it was found that even that was too easy to hit by mistake because it was all on the same side of the keyboard
[08:41:53] stuarta: C-A-D however is a little difficult if you only have 1 arm...
[08:42:08] stuarta: not that i know anybody in that situation
[08:43:56] stuartm: but for me, it was Bills tacit acknowledgement that you would _need_ to reboot so often that they wanted a dedicated single key which although not entirely MicroSofts fault (early memory/processors not having the fault protection of later hardware), still says a lot about his approach to problem solving
[08:46:42] stuarta: paper over the cracks rather than fix it

[08:54:26] stuartm: I heard stories that parts of the window's kernel where such a convoluted mess that it effectively became policy not to touch them because of the potential for breakage, as a result they endeavoured for a long time to workaround problems deep down in the kernel at a higher level, or even in user-space
[08:55:10] stuarta: it's a shame, because the core kernel design was a good one.
[08:55:29] stuartm: which of course would only have meant that as time passed, fewer and fewer people actually knew and understood that code
[09:13:49] jya_: stuarta: thanks... I'm currently following a blog that use distcc ... will see how it goes
[09:16:49] jya_: stuartm: that sounds like mythtv :)
[09:22:43] stuarta: haha

[10:38:04] jya_: stuarta: do you have to built all dependency libs locally when cross-compiling ????
[10:38:09] jya_: that will take me forever :(
[10:39:15] stuarta: or somebody has to have done it for you
[10:39:36] stuarta: it's been a few years since i've done it
[10:39:42] stuarta: like 15+ :)
[10:46:14] stuarta: jya_: you may be able to install the packages for the destination device into a chroot and use those
[10:55:45] jya_: distcc is working here... not sure how much quicker it makes everything.. the pi has a rather slow ethernet connection
[10:55:56] jya_: having said that, it's probably not much slower than the SD card I'm using

[12:09:35] jya_: stuartm: how do activate the OpenGL 2 code ?
[12:10:49] jya_: and additional question: do we support using OpenGL ES in place of OpenGL ?
[12:11:40] stuarta: configure looks for opengl es so in theory it should work, markk did a fair bit of work on that
[12:12:12] stuartm: jya_: you need to change the ThemePainter from opengl to opengl2 in the database (it's not currently offered as an option in the UI)
[12:12:45] stuartm: I was using it for months until last week when it suddenly stopped working, all I would get was a black screen :(
[12:12:49] jya_: stuarta: and you need qt to be compiled with OpenGL es isn't it ?
[12:13:51] stuartm: opengl2 es is an option, but I've never tried it for the UI
[12:36:43] jya_: stuartm: what are the advantages of opengl2 vs OpenGL code ?
[12:41:20] stuartm: I don't know what all the advantages are, but it makes better use of opengl for the rendering of things like shapes (uses shaders etc)
[12:43:03] stuartm: should produce much better results for round/rounded shapes

[16:06:16] jerrymr: stuartm: I think Bill meant he wanted a single button to bring up the login window, not a single button for reboot.
[16:40:26] stuartm: he didn't mean that, he was talking about IBM refusing to add a single button for rebooting the system – when it came to NT (several years later) they could have chosen any key/key combination to bring up the login window

[16:45:14] stuartm: in the words of the IBM guy who designed the keyboard layout, "I may have invented it, but Bill made it famous"
[16:46:16] stuartm: a joke which apparently Bill took badly :)

[19:30:00] johanbr: Hi. I'm trying to get myth to scan for EIT less often. In eitscanner.cpp, I've changed activeScanNextTrig = MythDate::current() into activeScanNextTrig = MythDate::current().addSecs(3600); and this delays the initial scan, but once that happens Myth continues to scan continuously.
[19:30:26] johanbr: Does activeScanNextTrig get set somewhere else, or is it just the scan never terminates? Any pointers would be appreciated.
[19:31:14] danielk22: johanbr: did you try the EIT settings in mythtv-setup in the General section?

[19:35:16] johanbr: danielk22: I guess you're referring to "Backend idle before EIT crawl" ? If I've understood correctly, that only applies if there are recordings scheduled.
[19:35:37] johanbr: I.e, if there are no recordings, there'll still be continuous EIT scanning
[19:39:46] johanbr: By the way, the reason I want to avoid the continuous scanning is that it makes my HDHomerun tuner pretty hot, it takes CPU on the backend, and it means there's a continous 18 Mbit/sec stream on the lan.
[19:39:50] danielk22: The backend idle only applies when there are no recordings. But what you really want is for the EIT scanning to stop once a complete set of programs has been collected. That is something that was discussed a long long time ago, but it was never high priority enough to get implementd.
[19:44:43] johanbr: Right. I've seen some patches on trac, but they appear to have bit-rotted by now.
[19:46:43] johanbr: I wouldn't mind playing with this a bit, but I'm not familiar with the Myth code base and don't have much time so progress is likely to be slow.
