[01:42:06] --- sbx|afk is now known as sbx
[01:42:12] * sbx yawns.
[01:42:15] <Yuv422> hi sbx
[01:42:15] <sbx> hello
[01:42:25] <Yuv422> how's things?
[01:42:54] <sbx> busy deleting adware on this winxp computer
[01:43:03] <Yuv422> :(
[01:43:31] <sbx> but ive been using opera, so I think most of this was dormant for a while
[01:43:43] <sbx> well.. IE did get used a few times
[01:44:15] <sbx> what are you doing?
[01:44:47] <Yuv422> tring to patch binutils to make a qnx pic aware toolchain
[01:44:51] <Yuv422> trying
[01:45:37] <sbx> you cross-compiling for what?
[01:45:41] <sbx> what...purpose
[01:46:11] <sbx> qnx?
[01:47:49] <Yuv422> http://www.topfield-australia.com.au/product.asp?SKU=TF5000PVRT
[01:48:28] <Yuv422> they supply a cygwin gcc binary
[01:48:56] <Yuv422> I want to make a cross compiler so I can compile for it on OS X
[01:49:09] <Yuv422> I was looking at the asembler output
[01:49:22] <Yuv422> and it looks like the thing runs a qnx operating system
[01:49:53] <Yuv422> so I'm trying to patch binutils so it generates qnx style pic references
[01:50:36] <sbx> that thing looks nice, I want one
[01:50:45] <sbx> what would you be compiling?
[01:50:53] <Yuv422> nuvie!!!
[01:51:07] <Yuv422> or just some video related timer stuff
[01:51:10] <Yuv422> :)
[01:51:23] <sbx> you had me for a second
[01:51:42] <Yuv422> hmm I wonder if we could play nuvie with a TV remote
[01:52:33] <sbx> probably
[01:52:39] <Yuv422> It only runs at 167MHz though
[01:52:46] <Yuv422> and it doesn't have an FPU
[01:52:49] <sbx> make a ps2 port :)
[01:53:26] <sbx> u6 for xbox
[01:53:32] <Yuv422> hehe
[01:53:39] <Yuv422> maybe one day
[01:54:01] <Yuv422> .file 1 "plasma.c"
[01:54:01] <Yuv422> .set nobopt
[01:54:01] <Yuv422> .qnxpiccalls
[01:54:01] <Yuv422> gcc2_compiled.:
[01:54:01] <Yuv422> __gnu_compiled_c:
[01:54:16] <Yuv422> I need to generate .qnxpiccalls
[01:54:46] <Yuv422> I had a terrible time just getting this old gcc to compile on OS X
[01:54:50] <sbx> I never learned about the object format
[01:54:59] <Yuv422> none of the autocof scripts knew what OS X was
[01:55:01] <sbx> program format
[01:55:19] <sbx> 2.95? hey thats my version
[01:55:24] <sbx> though i'll be upgrading in a day or two
[01:55:26] <sbx> when i get slackware 10
[01:55:33] <Yuv422> 2.95
[01:55:36] <Yuv422> Ouch that's old
[01:55:36] <servus> Yuv422, You use QNX? :-)
[01:55:43] --> Sheng_Gradilla has joined #nuvie
[01:55:44] <Sheng_Gradilla> :)
[01:55:49] <Yuv422> no
[01:55:56] <servus> Ah. I've QNX 6.2.1
[01:55:59] <sbx> What are you videotiming? Does the "Topfield TF5000PVRt" not have all the features you require?
[01:56:10] <sbx> hi Sheng_Gradilla
[01:56:20] <Yuv422> hehe sbx you should know me by now
[01:56:27] <Yuv422> I like to tinker with stuff
[01:56:32] <Sheng_Gradilla> hello sbx :)
[01:56:48] <Yuv422> hi guys
[01:56:52] <sbx> hmm no I didn't :) but thats cool
[01:57:35] <sbx> I dont bother with something like that usually
[01:57:52] <sbx> isnt QNX on pdas?
[01:58:07] <servus> No...
[01:58:14] <servus> QNX is a realtime server OS.
[01:58:21] <Yuv422> QNX is on the mars rovers IIRC
[01:58:51] <servus> Nah, a version of DOS is, IIRC :-p
[01:58:54] <Sheng_Gradilla> it means something like Quick Unix
[01:59:04] <Sheng_Gradilla> the purpose is to give you a quick answer
[01:59:12] <Sheng_Gradilla> no matter if it's right or wrong
[01:59:42] <sbx> What's on Zaurus
[02:00:10] <Sheng_Gradilla> that's something else
[02:01:30] <Sheng_Gradilla> certainly not QNX :P
[02:01:44] <Sheng_Gradilla> QNX costs a lot of money, IIRC
[02:01:59] <Sheng_Gradilla> more than a Zaurus
[02:04:26] <servus> QNX is for big burly servers :-p
[02:05:03] <Sheng_Gradilla> QNX is for real-time systems
[02:05:12] <Sheng_Gradilla> like robots
[02:06:12] <Sheng_Gradilla> for things that have lots of sensors and must report the sensing on-demand
[02:06:29] <Sheng_Gradilla> stuff that is time-critical
[02:08:10] <sbx> ok ok
[02:08:11] <sbx> thanks
[02:08:14] <sbx> it was Qtopia
[02:08:26] <sbx> they both start with a Q, close enough
[02:09:01] <sbx> but I also like robots
[02:09:37] <servus> So... yeah. I have QNX 6.2.1 but wouldn't play games on it :-)
[02:10:27] <sbx> Did it cost a lot of money?
[02:12:05] <servus> I have the personal edition
[02:12:35] <servus> (Free)
[02:13:58] <sbx> you have any robots?
[02:14:56] <Sheng_Gradilla> we got some robots at the astronomical research center here
[02:15:07] <servus> I am a robot.
[02:15:10] <Sheng_Gradilla> they guide the telescopes mostly
[02:15:30] <servus> *beep beep* must...cover self...with jellybeans...*beep beep*
[02:15:38] <sbx> :\
[02:16:31] <servus> You don't like my robot side :'(
[02:16:54] <sbx> no it's fine
[02:16:57] <sbx> do you run QNX?
[02:17:56] <sbx> Sheng_Gradilla: I was thinking robots more like servus. :)
[02:21:57] <servus> Hmm?
[02:22:06] <servus> I don't use QNX much. I just play around a very little with it.
[02:50:28] <servus> Holy cow, I'm stupid! cdrecord just let me burn over my non-recordable installation CD!
[02:51:45] --> Yuv422_ has joined #nuvie
[02:59:07] <sbx> cdrecord is fun
[02:59:21] <servus> It shouldn't have let me do that =-/

[03:11:58] <Sheng_Gradilla> servus: wahahahaha :D
[03:12:03] <servus> Mhrrrrrrrreh
[03:12:38] <Sheng_Gradilla> installation CD of what?
[03:13:16] <Sheng_Gradilla> and what did you "record" on it?
[03:39:11] <servus> I wrote over my Damn Small Linux CD with Debian Sarge installation ISO
[03:39:29] <servus> Dunno what happened to the data, but I think it was a real burn because the CD was toasty when it came out
[03:47:44] <Sheng_Gradilla> penguin jerky :P
[03:49:50] <servus> Mhrrrr
[03:49:53] <servus> Meow?
[03:52:54] <Sheng_Gradilla> you meow like my girlfriend :D
[03:58:15] <servus> Do I bite like her too?
[04:00:07] * sbx is downloading a Slackware 10.0 ISO on dial-up.
[04:19:02] <servus> Want me to send you a CD?
[04:26:07] <servus> sbx?
[04:40:18] * Sheng_Gradilla is away: No estoy
[04:54:17] <sbx> no thanks it's almost done
[04:55:01] <sbx> almost = 15h remaining :)
[04:55:48] <sbx> though I bought the last version
