Deanjo: michaellarabel, will that K10 patch ever be submitted into lmsensors?
Kano: hi michaellarabel
Kano: i see no new commit which would fix the language issue
Kano: did you test it?
michaellarabel: Which language issue? The LANG and LC_* environmental overrides?
Kano: will paste it again
Kano: to test on your system
Kano: echo de_DE.UTF-8 UTF-8 >> /etc/locale.gen
Kano: LANG=de_DE.UTF-8 ./phoronix-test-suite gui
Kano: for example
Kano: you see the average line?
Kano: after that pts stops
Kano: when save was selected
michaellarabel: So this looks like a new language issue then, since what's outputted for the three test runs is a period
michaellarabel: I will need to look to see how to override language issues for PHP then
Kano: yes your own python is also language depending
Deanjo: Ya I showed that issue to michael about a week ago
michaellarabel: adding setlocale(LC_ALL, "en_US"); to the top of pts-core/phoronix-test-suite.php might fix it. However, I think there may be more of a problem at hand that I know of due to how its handled with parsing of results.
Kano: never use en_US
Kano: only C
Kano: or nowthing
Kano: because do not expect that en_US will be on foreign systems
Kano: C is everywhere
Kano: or unset
Kano: i dont think that lc_all does anything
michaellarabel: http://us3.php.net/setlocale it should
Kano: it does not work, try yourself or use my live image
Kano: LC_NUMERIC would be what matters
Kano: i used
Kano: then it worked
Kano: but after the run the pts window was really small
evocallaghan: Like to give some feedback here. Just got a X301 laptop
evocallaghan: Fantastic driver support
evocallaghan: Very fast too
evocallaghan: Both Ubuntu 8.10 and Solaris Express (108)
GNU\colossus: newsflash: PHP is utter crap.
evocallaghan: Ruby is crapper though
GNU\colossus: never ever.
Azerthoth: GNU\colossus burger king or mcdonalds?
GNU\colossus: burger king
GNU\colossus: although I like McD, too
Azerthoth: was trying to point out that its all opinion
GNU\colossus: Azerthoth: well no, as a matter of fact, PHP is junk.
GNU\colossus: just take a thourough look at the language
GNU\colossus: it will make you want to vomit because of all the inconsistencies
Azerthoth: never had any real issues when I was using it
Erektium: michaellarabel, was that Sapphire Radeon HD 4670 512MB GDDR4 quiet?
Erektium: nevermind it was in the article
evocallaghan: is extreamly impressed with his new X301 laptop !
Kano: michaellarabel: could you add that override?
Kano: michaellarabel: setlocale(LC_NUMERIC,"C");
Kano: + check what else is wrong ;)
evocallaghan: Kano:Hey, long time, _again_ :p
michaellarabel: Kano: Yes I will. I know what the other problem is, but it's a matter of deciding how I want to address the problem
michaellarabel: Hi evocallaghan
evocallaghan: Hows things
evocallaghan: Oh, I got one of these Lenovo X301's with the Soild State disks
evocallaghan: Fantastic !
evocallaghan: Also, hw support is really good.
evocallaghan: Maybe of interest to you.
michaellarabel: Nice :)
evocallaghan: I just sent in a message to the mailing list if hotkey support is there for it
evocallaghan: If not I will try too add it this week
evocallaghan: Bit loaded down at the moment, back in London now
evocallaghan: Going to create a new ISO soon with the new X server.
evocallaghan: At which point I think we should be ready so say something in public about the project and its objectives
michaellarabel: http://www.ptsrm.com/ -> http://www.phoronix-test-suite.com/ Any guesses what's that for?
Kano: why didnt you register with your own name
michaellarabel: Kano: You main for the domain registration?
Kano: i mean when you look at whois yourdomain it is registered via a proxy service that hides you
michaellarabel: Yes, that's because otherwise I get loads of spam from companies
Kano: in germany this would not be allowed
michaellarabel: Tons of mailings about hosting and such.
vadi2_: Is anyone here a xorg development expert?
redeeman: well :) just upgraded to xorg-server 1.5.3 :)
