[09:56:33] <Cashman> what CPU's are considered compatible for a I686 optimized distribution - ?? duron?? if so what else
[09:57:00] <Cashman> as in gentoo for example has a pentium 3/4 dist, a athlon xp dist and a x86 dist
[09:57:21] <Cashman> so what cpu's come under i686 even though some of thease probably would work under it
[10:00:06] <Cashman> and whats stages compared to live or packaged dist
[10:00:37] <Cashman> is stages just a small minimal distribution? compared to everything on a cd for a particular processor platform
[10:00:38] <Cashman> ??
[10:03:36] <Cashman> so could I download stages and use that as a minimal dist, - if so there are stages 1 , 2 &3 of which 1 seams to only exist in the x86 directory
[10:03:56] <Cashman> so does that mean grap 1 from x86 and 2 + 3 from the oppropriate platform dir that u need
[10:04:18] <Cashman> so I want to run on my duron processor - would I choose I686 which sounds about right or x86
[10:04:56] <Cashman> sorry if I written too much - its just that I hear at least 1 of u guys runs gentoo and I wouldnt mind the info

[13:58:48] <Colourless> back at your best.... almost 2 hours.
[13:59:09] <wjp> I have a pretty convincing excuse today... was at a funeral
[14:00:05] <Colourless> oh.

[15:44:31] * wjp hmms
[15:44:46] <wjp> the list of unimplemented intrinsics is getting rather short
[15:44:56] <wjp> couple of combat related ones
[15:45:05] <wjp> couple of pathfinding related ones
[15:45:55] <wjp> hm, book/grave/plaque should be easy to do
[16:16:05] <wjp> I wonder what the extra parameter to readPlaque and readGrave means
[16:16:18] <wjp> for graves it seems to be always 0x1B and for plaques 0x10
[16:16:31] <wjp> first guess was font number, but that doesn't seem to be it
[16:18:09] <wjp> hm, maybe background shape
[16:18:37] <wjp> indeed, that fits
[16:18:51] <wjp> strange they do specify it for graves/plaques but not for books/scrolls
[16:19:11] <wjp> I guess they were planning to have different types of graves/plaques
[18:18:29] <Colourless> going
