  33. [15:22:47] <exherboer> Hi. What is the maximum display resolution supported by the pandaboard?
  34. [15:24:12] <rys> The DVI output is single link, so I think 1920x1200 at 165MHz or so
  35. [15:24:17] <rys> HDMI is 1080p
  36. [15:25:04] <exherboer> Ok, thanks. So no way to run a 2560x1600 monitor then?
  37. [15:25:25] <koen> omap3 could do 2048x2048
  38. [15:25:33] <koen> are you saying omap4 is worse than omap3?
  39. [15:25:42] <rys> that was an analogue output
  40. [15:25:48] <koen> no
  41. [15:26:39] <rys> exherboer: I don't think so, since the connectors are HDMI
  42. [15:26:50] <rys> even if the DVI was dual-link, I don't think it'd work
  43. [15:27:00] <rys> I can try though, I've got a 2560x1600 panel
  44. [15:28:27] <koen> the dvi connector is just dvi with a hdmi plug
  45. [15:28:48] <rys> but is the transmitter dual-link?
  46. [15:29:01] <koen> but of course letting facts get in the way of rys is no fun
  47. [15:29:24] <rys> well if you know it'll work, say so
  48. [15:29:27] <Sage> NishanthMenon: does that branch now contain also the 63-sector limitation fix?
  49. [15:29:39] <NishanthMenon> Sage - it should
  50. [15:30:20] <NishanthMenon> I did boot test the image yesterday night with standard mkcard.sh - it worked - not tested with your mic2 revision yet
  51. [15:31:25] <Sage> the mkcard should not needed at all
  52. [15:34:20] <Sage> I'll try to get the new mic tested and will do sr to the panda image configuration branch after I have tested it

  77. [17:07:50] * Nytowl (~angus@mail.au-zone.com) has joined #pandaboard
  78. [17:08:16] <robstoddard> Any suggestions if I think I've got a DOA pandaboard? When I try to power it up, the only thing I get is the status2 LED shines, but nothing else.
  79. [17:08:50] * Nytowl (~angus@mail.au-zone.com) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
  80. [17:09:25] * gustavoz (~gustavoz@host161.201-253-133.telecom.net.ar) has joined #pandaboard
  81. [17:15:10] <Kevin`> robstoddard: nothing on the serial port?
  82. [17:15:22] <robstoddard> nothing at all
  83. [17:15:52] <robstoddard> I set it up right- I have done a lot of hawk & beagleboard stuff... 115200 n 8 1 no flow control, etc
  84. [17:17:12] <robclark> robstoddard: note that unlike beagle, panda has no NAND.. and so needs a bootable SD card with MLO/u-boot to see anything on UART
  85. [17:17:57] <robclark> also, another gotcha to watch out for is the serial port cabling.. don't use a null modem adapter. A USB->UART adapter connected directly works fine
  86. [17:18:12] <robstoddard> understood. I loaded that all appropriately, even foisting the disk dimensions suggested; also did the dd first block zeroing to be sure.... aha that's key info
  87. [17:18:41] <robstoddard> in fact, I think panda documentation suggests using a null modem- but doesn't clearly state to (or not to) use null-modem
  88. [17:19:24] <robclark> hmm, ok.. where are you looking at? Probably some page on some wiki somewhere needs fixing..
  89. [17:21:11] * Ragha (~ragha@nat/ti/x-ltrsaqfpkynzcknr) has joined #pandaboard
  90. [17:23:49] <robstoddard> hmm.... null modem removed; I am still not getting anything. It's not possible that having the null-modem on there would damage the board, right?
  91. [17:23:59] <robclark> no, don't think so
  92. [17:28:10] * gustavoz (~gustavoz@host161.201-253-133.telecom.net.ar) Quit (Quit: Leaving)

  95. [17:43:31] <koen> robclark: any words of wisdom on the buffer issue for concurrent dce decodes?
  96. [17:43:59] <robclark> koen: probably reduce the # of buffers for each decode...
  97. [17:44:20] <robclark> currently, it is doing (what should be) a worst case calculation based on width/height
  98. [17:44:35] <robclark> but a base profile stream probably doesn't need so many ref frames
  99. [17:45:11] <koen> it's trying to fill the memory hole, right?
  100. [17:45:25] <koen> so in theory a new memory hole + m3 firmware could help
  101. [17:45:38] <robclark> no, not really anything to do with the memory hole
  102. [17:45:48] <robclark> that is just used for heap and code on ducati
  103. [17:46:01] <robclark> the actual YUV buffers are getting allocated from TILER
  104. [17:46:20] <koen> ah, even bettter
  105. [17:46:25] <av500> robclark: you can do some cleverness using WxH and the sps data to know the max ref frames
  106. [17:46:54] <av500> also taking profile/level into account
  107. [17:46:55] <robclark> av500: yeah, I was just looking at adding SPS parsing to gst-ducati for this reason
  108. [17:46:59] <av500> :)
  109. [17:47:05] <robclark> the SPS has max_num_ref_frames
  110. [17:47:09] <av500> yep
  111. [17:49:03] <robclark> koen: fwiw, there are some other things that could be done if needed... like we could move the input buffers out of TILER and instead allocate them from ducati's heap (which is physically contiguous).. but I didn't try to figure out how to do that yet
  112. [17:54:01] <robclark> koen: hmm, if I understand this properly, mru is just passing in some how a max amount of memory, and then allocating as many buffers as possible within that window..
  113. [17:54:37] * jluisn (~jluisn@187.115.172.24) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
  114. [17:54:48] <robclark> so probably you need to reduce max_mem in v4l2_alloc().. wherever that parameter is coming from
  115. [18:00:44] * cringthis (~cringthis@nat/ti/x-kexynfhnrioowtnt) Quit (Ping timeout: 265 seconds)
  116. [18:01:53] <robstoddard> Oh, BTW, P 27 of the pandaboard hardware ref manual says that you should use a null-modem cable to talk to the serial port... is that right?
  117. [18:06:07] <Ragha> NishanthMenon, ping
  118. [18:06:39] <NishanthMenon> Ragha, pong
  119. [18:06:41] <NishanthMenon> whatz up?
  120. [18:07:46] <Ragha> good news: the rootfs is created, however the board images are not created
  121. [18:08:02] <NishanthMenon> Ragha, yeah - that is what Sage is working on atm
  122. [18:08:11] <Ragha> close failed in file object destructor:
  123. [18:08:11] <Ragha> IOError: [Errno 9] Bad file descriptor
  124. [18:08:11] <Ragha> error: no 1.1.80.11.20101221.1/board/images/meego-handset-armv7l-panda directory created
  125. [18:08:32] <NishanthMenon> Ragha, please use pastebin.mozilla.org for logs :)
  126. [18:08:45] <NishanthMenon> Ragha, at this point, you need to use tar as in the wiki for meego

  135. [18:44:37] * Sage is building a meego image for panda with mic.
  136. [18:44:49] <Sage> lets see how this goes
  137. [18:45:11] <Sage> if this works I can do the merge request to the panda image cnofigurations repo
  138. [18:45:34] <Sage> will take a while though with my atom based netbook :P
  139. [18:48:39] * j_ack (~Rudi@p57A424DB.dip.t-dialin.net) has joined #pandaboard
  140. [18:49:04] <mru> koen, robclark: v4l2 never gives me more than 18 frames at 1080p
  141. [18:50:16] <mru> or maybe it does... /me rechecks
  142. [18:50:43] <mru> correction, 24 seems the most I can get
  143. [18:50:49] <robclark> it looks like 10 is what I normally allocate for ~1080p..
  144. [18:51:00] <robclark> so 24 should be plenty
  145. [18:51:06] <mru> h264 requires 16 for ref frames
  146. [18:51:23] <robclark> 16 for lower resolutions.. not for 1080p
  147. [18:51:30] <mru> and v4l2 requires one more
  148. [18:51:36] <robclark> true
  149. [18:51:42] * NightMonkey (debian-tor@pdpc/supporter/professional/nightmonkey) has joined #pandaboard
  150. [18:52:00] <mru> and I allocate some extra for buffering
  151. [18:52:22] <robclark> but sticking with clips that are not using the max # of ref frames, then we should be able to get away with less buffers
  152. [18:52:52] <mru> that's ignoring the problem
  153. [18:53:02] <robclark> like the yahoo or apple movie trailer clips.. those aren't too complex and I think max_num_ref_frames is just 2 or 3 (IIRC)
  154. [18:53:31] <robclark> allocating more buffers will be possible, but it requires non-page-aligned buffers
  155. [18:53:42] <robclark> right now a lot of TILER space is wasted
  156. [18:53:49] <mru> yes, I can see that
  157. [18:53:54] <mru> needs to be fixed
  158. [18:54:37] <robclark> tiler 2.0 should help.. but v4l2 clients would need a minor change to deal with non page aligned buffers..
  159. [18:56:48] * KC9SJQ (~grant@69-212-152-140.ded.ameritech.net) Quit (Ping timeout: 240 seconds)
  160. [18:57:08] <_av500_> mru: 16 is like for qvga
  161. [18:58:04] <robclark> fwiw, some encoders do seem to let you encode with more ref frames than should be allowed by spec at a given resolution.. so parsing SPS to figure out needed # of buffers is best
  162. [18:58:46] * virals (~viral@122.179.90.49) has joined #pandaboard
  163. [18:59:51] <mru> it's never more than 16
  164. [19:00:13] <robclark> true, but it is often less ;-)

  177. [19:51:31] <robclark_> mru: I think just rebuild with latest headers from libdce, and add these two extra params: https://github.com/robclark/gst-ducati/commit/294d319973e3f88e5d9264ed493132b604ad170a

  181. [19:52:12] <robclark> I haven't pushed it yet, but I think adding this is a good idea too:
  182. [19:52:13] <robclark> params->temporalDirModePred = TRUE;
  183. [19:54:15] <robclark> mru: to be less coupled to codec version, you should be able to use just VIDDEC3_Params instead of IH264VDEC_Params..
  184. [19:54:29] <robclark> all the default values for the h264 specific parameters in the codec seem sane
  185. [20:06:04] <mru> so those two lines can be removed?
  186. [20:06:51] <robclark> if you use VIDDEC3_Params instead, then yes..
  187. [20:07:47] <robclark> ie use something like: params = dce_alloc(sizeof(VIDDEC3_Params));
  188. [20:08:00] <robclark> params->size = sizeof(VIDDDEC3_Params)
  189. [20:08:06] <mru> ok
  190. [20:08:10] <robclark> and then remove those two lines
  191. [20:08:16] * Sage is unable to get the panda image boot that he just made :/
  192. [20:08:25] <_av500_> then give it the boot
  193. [20:11:09] <Sage> well the sector thing matches so I'm guessing the x-loader is not working
  194. [20:11:44] <_av500_> well, xloader does print on the serial
  195. [20:11:58] <Sage> well, nothing comes out from the serial :/
  196. [20:12:02] <_av500_> ic
  197. [20:13:00] <Sage> so any ideas? :)
  198. [20:13:30] * BThompson (~a0193480@nat/ti/x-lbccgajmrtzhahxk) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)

  200. [20:16:07] <koen> robclark: what was the plan for the stridetransform stuff?
  201. [20:16:14] <koen> robclark: rebase it or wait for 0.11?
  202. [20:16:42] <robclark> I had been periodically rebasing it.. does it need it again?
  203. [20:16:49] <robclark> for 0.11, I think it should no longer be needed
  204. [20:16:52] <koen> haven't checked
  205. [20:17:12] <koen> but most TI forks are a merge mess
  206. [20:17:35] <koen> and since it's on dev.omapzoom.....
  207. [20:17:54] <robclark> I had been rebasing the gst trees periodically.. but I guess I've been a bit busy recently so it may be time again..
  208. [20:24:05] <Sage> NishanthMenon: the mic seems to work based on the check prog that _av500_ made, however I'm unable to get image to boot still :/
  209. [20:24:32] <NishanthMenon> Sage, hmmm
  210. [20:24:46] <NishanthMenon> let me try with you mic2 installation I had done on my laptop
  211. [20:24:49] <NishanthMenon> give me a few mins
  212. [20:25:14] <_av500_> Sage: you could replace your mlo and uboot with known good ones
  213. [20:25:29] <_av500_> or the other way round, take yours on a known to boot card
  214. [20:26:25] <Sage> NishanthMenon: remember that you need to add "part /boot --size 64 --ondisk sda --fstype=vfat" before the part / line
  215. [20:26:29] <Sage> to the .ks
  216. [20:28:46] <NishanthMenon> mmcbl0p is what i had
  217. [20:28:53] <NishanthMenon> i have'nt pulled your latest code
  218. [20:29:04] <NishanthMenon> trying with last one which successfully worked for me
  219. [20:29:17] <Sage> well that does not matter rename sda to mmcbl0p or what ever the other is
  220. [20:29:24] <Sage> most important is that both are the same
  221. [20:29:34] <NishanthMenon> they are
  222. [20:29:45] <NishanthMenon> attempting image now
  223. [20:29:52] <NishanthMenon> sorry building image now :)
  224. [20:30:26] <mru> mmcbl0p? not mmcblk0?
  225. [20:30:39] <NishanthMenon> mmcblk0p
  226. [20:30:41] <NishanthMenon> sorry
  227. [20:31:07] <mru> drop the p
  228. [20:31:12] <mru> mmcblk0 is the full card
  229. [20:31:20] <mru> mmcblk0p1 is the first partition
  230. [20:31:20] <Sage> no
  231. [20:31:20] <mru> etc
  232. [20:31:30] <Sage> for mic it must be mmcblk0p
  233. [20:31:39] <mru> there is no such device
  234. [20:31:43] <Sage> yes
  235. [20:31:45] <mru> at least not on any machine I own
  236. [20:31:47] <Sage> but that line in mic isn't device
  237. [20:32:05] <Sage> it is something to which number X is added and then put to fstab :)
  238. [20:32:14] <Sage> "nice feature" (tm)
  239. [20:32:29] <mru> oh, I assumed it was the device on which to create the partition table
  240. [20:32:30] <Sage> so mmcblk0p will become mmcblk0p1 and mmcblk0p2
  241. [20:32:50] <Sage> if you had mmcblk0 then in fstab would be mmcblk01 mmcblk02
  242. [20:32:58] <mru> sorry for the confusion
  243. [20:33:16] <Sage> it was originally designed for sda sdb etc so that is why it works like so :/
  244. [20:37:11] <NishanthMenon> Sage, http://pastebin.mozilla.org/897681 is definitely there in x-loader
  245. [20:37:19] <NishanthMenon> that was the fix needed for the x-loader thingy
  246. [20:38:22] <Sage> in which repository?
  247. [20:39:17] <NishanthMenon> home:nm:pandademo2/x-loader-omap4panda
  248. [20:39:42] <NishanthMenon> the new one I updated yesterday
  249. [20:39:48] <Sage> ok
  250. [20:39:51] <NishanthMenon> i updated the kernel today to L24.11p5
  251. [20:40:01] <NishanthMenon> it boots fine with mkcard.sh
  252. [20:40:12] <NishanthMenon> i have the ui and things look fine in my iniital tests here

  266. [20:59:47] <NishanthMenon> darned - i should have bought a class10 card.. this darned card is doing 4MB/s :(

  269. [21:03:00] <_av500_> ok, so in front of the frame
  270. [21:04:05] <robclark> yeah, in front of the frame, but different endianess and slight re-arrangement compared to what we get from demuxer
  271. [21:06:01] <_av500_> of course
  272. [21:06:03] <_av500_> :)
  273. [21:08:21] <koen> robclark: thanks!

  298. [21:49:08] <Sage> I have the same repos and my mic does valid images so there should not be any real difference. :/

  322. [22:15:19] <NishanthMenon> Sage, hmm...
  323. [22:15:27] <NishanthMenon> my card is a 2GB card
  324. [22:15:42] <NishanthMenon> i have a 8GB card handy - let me try dd to it as well
  325. [22:16:07] <Sage> the difference is that I'm using u-boot-tools to get mkimage to the image and you use the uboot-mkimage that is obsolete
  326. [22:16:32] <NishanthMenon> Sage, do you have the kernel bootup?
  327. [22:16:38] <Sage> no

  334. [22:18:02] <Alison_Chaiken> Thanks NishanthMenon, I'll have a look. Happy to have hot off the presses news! Thanks for all your hard work.
  335. [22:18:14] <NishanthMenon> Alison_Chaiken, you just need to do a git reset --hard ; git pull and try again -
  336. [22:18:51] <Sage> NishanthMenon: http://pastebin.mozilla.org/897713 <- you should remove lines 49-51 from .ks and change line 74 to u-boot-tools from uboot-mkimage
  337. [22:18:55] <NishanthMenon> btw, ready build image with Sage's updates on mic2 is being discussed here.. FYI, I just put the images here: https://github.com/nmenon/pandademo2
  338. [22:19:38] <NishanthMenon> Sage, ok will try
  339. [22:20:22] <Sage> in addition to that I'm not seeing what could have made that thing to work badly on my end
  340. [22:22:03] <NishanthMenon> Sage, building here

  350. [22:36:39] <NishanthMenon> --active?
  351. [22:36:49] <NishanthMenon> i seem to have mine that way
  352. [22:36:58] <Sage> ah
  353. [22:37:02] <Sage> that might be it :D
  354. [22:37:16] <Sage> however the --active does not seem to work properly with mic though :/
  355. [22:37:18] <NishanthMenon> can you do a sudo fsdisk -l /dev/sdb ?
  356. [22:37:31] <NishanthMenon> i can dump mine once the image is put on the card
  357. [22:38:04] <Sage> there it is
