ahollerno idea about my ssds, have to look how to look that up ;)01:11
warthog9aholler: lol01:11
warthog9I suspect about half my ssds have secure erase / trim01:12
aholleri really think the kernel should report that interesting detail in dmesg01:12
ahollermaybe I will send the little patch out01:13

bcranwarthog9: thanks - happened to check earlier and noticed :)06:37
warthog9bcran: awesome06:37
bcranwarthog9: I just posted to the list, but since you're here I was wondering - do I need to do anything special to reset SMBIOS strings?06:38
bcranThe info pages are reporting UEFI 2.3.1, Intel Corporation and the memory size as 4GB06:38
warthog9bcran: with 0.76?06:39
bcranwarthog9: yu[06:39
warthog9errr UEFI 2.3.1 might be right (since that might be the shell version)06:39
warthog9which value is reporting Intel Corp?06:39
bcranthe BIOS vendor06:40
warthog9I think that's "right"06:40
bcranwhich I guess is correct, though I thought there were discussions of changing it?06:40
warthog9bcran: i think we are leaving it at Intel Corp for the bios vendor06:40
bcranok, cool06:40
warthog9I'd have to go dig through the giant mail thread on that one06:41
warthog9but I'm reasonably sure that's right06:41
warthog9and what does /proc/meminfo claim for memory size?06:41
warthog9and is it claiming 4G MAX memory or what?06:41
bcranI don't have an OS installed - purely working at the UEFI shell for now06:42
warthog9that smells like a bug06:42
bcranthough just noticed, the board reports BIOS version MNW2MAX1.X64.0076.R01.1412081258 but the filename I downloaded has 'R03'06:43
warthog9yeah was just reading your e-mail06:43
warthog9bcran: can you e-mail me what commands you were running to see that, and I'll double check that stuff tomorrow06:44
bcranwarthog9: yeah, I'll follow-up tomorrow and check with smbiosview too06:44
warthog9bcran: thanks06:46
warthog9it wouldn't surprise me that some of the values are wrong in there06:46
warthog9grief, was just shifting through a drawer full of network cards and I'm realizing how useless all my pci nics are06:57
koenwarthog9: and suprisingly few PCIe nics available in shops07:16
warthog9koen: yeah07:16
warthog9koen: I do have a couple multi-port pci and pci-e cards about07:16
warthog9but those are far and few between07:16
koenmultiport PCIe is easier to find than single port07:17
koenI only needed single port at the time07:17
* warthog9 nods07:17
warthog9yeah I've got a dual port in my home server, and a 4-port in my firewall07:18
warthog9a pile of companies ago I had access to some 6-port pci-e cards07:18
warthog9those were fun07:18
koenI was looking at 10GB/e PCIe cards a while ago07:19
koenit's weird that the switch is cheaper than the nic07:19
koenfor E300 I can get 16xGBe +4x10GBe07:19
koenbut the nic is E40007:19
warthog9what switch?07:21
* warthog9 has been vaguely pondering playing with some 10GBe07:21

warthog9not giving a drone talk I hope07:22
koenwarthog9: dunno which switch, I just looked online at hw shops and used their config utils07:22
warthog9if you are, we should compare notes and make sure NOT to say the same thing this time ;-)07:22
koenno talk, just walking around07:22
warthog9cool, I'm recycling my ELCE talk07:23
koenwork sprint the week before, so I'm hopping on a train later today07:23
* koen has totally lost track of weekdays07:23
warthog9koen: I think it's now technically Tuesday07:23
koenbut I'm travelling, so it must be saturday or sunday07:23
warthog9I know the feeling :-)07:24
warthog9I should probably go crash07:24
warthog9speaking of Tuesday07:24

ahollerbecause I'm not a dumb yes-sayer?12:55
ahollerunfortunately the time where individuals could contribute to the kernel is gone. I should really learn that.12:56
aholleralso I've got already very quiet (in regard to contributing to os) compared with past times and stopped most activities like sending bugfixes and patches (not only for the kernel)13:10

bluelightningaholler: I would say don't be too discouraged, even in the face of rudeness like that... after all, you're doing it for the wider community, not them13:23
ahollerbluelightning: there is no community anymore. It's now all the hands of big companies which prefer silent yes-sayers.13:24
bluelightningwell, I don't know that that's always the case... in the small number of communities I contribute to (which doesn't include the kernel) people generally put the project first and are open to contributions and suggestions13:27
bluelightning(I say that as someone who works for a fairly large company)13:28

ahollerbluelightning: you mean prpplague can convince them to stop producing cpu's without ecc? ;)13:48
ahollerthe server-fraction would likely shot him ;)13:49
aholleralso producing is likely wrong, I assume every chip already contains it and it's just fused away for consumers13:51
ahollerlike filesystems which can't really delete files ;)13:51
ahollercrazy world13:52
bluelightningspeaking for myself, I don't really have much contact with that side of the company, I spend almost all of my time dealing with software13:55

HoloPedaholler, the XFCE one doesn't see the USB3.0 drive17:45
HoloPedthe others did17:45
warthog9HoloPed: yup17:49
HoloPedcan you think of a reason that debian installer can't see the USB3.0 drive ?17:50
HoloPedthe XFCE doesnt, the CD1 image does17:51
HoloPedbut the CD1 image wont boot after installtion17:51
warthog9during or after install?17:56
warthog9it's possible it's not loading the USB stack in the initrd17:56
HoloPedUSB2.0 pluggin into the USB3.0 port is detected17:56

warthog9(from a Debian perspective)18:01
warthog9HoloPed: I assume your following: http://elinux.org/Minnowboard:MinnowMaxDistros#Debian_8.0_Jessie_.28testing.29_Alpha_1_AMD6418:02
HoloPedbut where do I download the iso18:02
warthog9they might not have an iso for 8 yet...18:05
HoloPedthe guide says18:06
HoloPed"This was tested with the Debian Jessie Alpha 1 AMD64 XFCE CD image"18:06
warthog9there we go18:06
HoloPedok !18:08
HoloPedhow did you find this18:08
HoloPedwhat I found was old18:08
warthog9google "iso for debian jessie" first link was https://www.debian.org/devel/debian-installer/18:09

gahseyfan@HoloPed are you running the latest UEFI? (looks like ver 76)?21:33
