Phoronix IRC Log: 2008-10-24
Milyardo: Good Morning
Milyardo: michaellarabel: Does phoronix use the http_proxy enviroment vairable when logging into PTS global?
Milyardo: *Does PTS
Milyardo: Yeah I can't seem to log on my workstation here
Milyardo: At the Univeristy
michaellarabel: That would be a PHP issue
michaellarabel: If PHP obeys the proxy var, PTS should "just work"
michaellarabel: there may be a php.ini setting or something for proxys
Milyardo: Thats not really a Fix
Milyardo: installing packages seems to work
Milyardo: is that becaquse you use wget instead michaellarabel?
michaellarabel: Yes, installing packages uses wget (or curl too is supported in Orkdal)
Milyardo: Maybe curl could be used during the login process?
michaellarabel: not too nicely
redeeman: you could make the http request code abstracted and support php curl and fopen wrappers
redeeman: shouldn't really be a problem
Dr_ST: hi all
Milyardo: That or get the php devs to get fopen to use http_proxy
redeeman: Milyardo: that'll take lots of time to reach the people
Dr_ST: michaellarabel: is there a specific announcement possible for new versions of pts? it seems i've missed some for the mandriva rpms :-)
Milyardo: I know
michaellarabel: Dr_ST: The PTS mailing list is relatively low traffic and is made mostly of all the announcements
Dr_ST: i'll subscrive then, in order to not miss next releases
Milyardo: michaellarabel: Is there way I could scp my results to my box at home and upload from there
Milyardo: or better yet
Milyardo: is there a way to login securely with SSL? That way we could use port 443 instead
michaellarabel: No SSL way right now, but you could just copy ~/.phoronix-test-suite/test-results/ and then run phoronix-test-suite upload
Kano: hi michaellarabel , did you read: http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=121763 and http://www.winehq.org/?announce=1.1.7
Deanjo: "First steps of Direct3D 10 implementation" one step closer to getting Halo 2 to run :D
dmb: michaellarabel, do you know a good retailer for that wireless device thats nice on shipping?
maligor: dmb, you need usb?
maligor: atheros mini-pci or atheros pci are usually better
maligor: atheros usb is questionable support, so can't comment on it
maligor: oh, it was realtek.. never used those
maligor: ralink was pretty depressing that I used it
maligor: intel mini-pci is also good
maligor: switched a ralink pci to a atheros pci-e card of recent, improved it quite a bit
maligor: it could also be related to the fact that the ap has atheros also
maligor: it's just that for laptops, it's usually better to use mini-pci or mini-pcie
maligor: they tend to have internal antennas already in place
