michaellarabel: Hi Milyardo_
Kano: hi michaellarabel , what do you think about using a bd content for benchmarking h264 use? maybe the bd with the latest blender movies?
michaellarabel: Kano: maybe
michaellarabel: BTW, Kano, are you well experienced with bash_completion scripts?
Kano: the testfile you use has too low bitrate for new cpus,thats clear
Kano: i use bash completition, but never extended it.
Kano: but i dont think that would be too hard
michaellarabel: I keep running into some issue when working on new PTS bash_completion
Kano: is it in git already?
michaellarabel: The working version is in Git, but if you try it out, in pts-core/static/bash_completion, basically when trying to replace the string of options with $USE, it never works correctly.
Kano: i think you dont check enough for the number of options you provide
Kano: seperate em into 1, 2 and more option args
Kano: gui-gtk is for example 1 option oly
Kano: global-login too and so on
Kano: maybe look at /etc/bash_completion.d/dkms
michaellarabel: Kano: Can you pastebin the bash_completion dkms, I don't have it installed at the moment
michaellarabel: but it's not the option count that I am tackling right now it's just to even fill in the first option that is not working right when using $USE
Kano: thats the diff between phoronix-test-suite dump-possible-options and with TRUE behind
Kano: you want to use the output of USE for the COMREPLY?
Kano: then it is much shorter
michaellarabel: Kano: Right, I want it to be dynamic, instead of having that list of options pasted in there, that's simply what I am trying to get it to do
Kano: i guess the problem you had was because of the use of ' instead of "
Kano: maybe you could do it even smarter calling pts itself
Kano: do you have got a list how many options every command needs in pts
Kano: basically the parts is recusive
Kano: the simple part a 1 case options
michaellarabel: Kano: Yes, I will be working on that part after I get this first part working.
Kano: then the 2 case options which are not depending on the first option
Kano: then options which depend on other options before used
Kano: i think no option depends on another option
Kano: so you just have to check if they need more options or no
Kano: what do you think about my shortend version
michaellarabel: Kano: Your version still doesn't work right
Kano: depends on the definition or right ;)
Kano: it is still not what i want, thats clear
michaellarabel: Type phoronix-test-suite and space and then hit tab a few times, it never shows the possible options
michaellarabel: or even if you type: phoronix-test-suite s and then tab
Kano: when it is more than 1 option beginning with s you have to use tab twice
Kano: that definitely works
Kano: when you write sh it is filled
Kano: i used a symlink
michaellarabel: when I just do s it never works.
Kano: for testing i did this:
Kano: symlink with full path to /etc/bash_completion.d/phoronix-test-suite
Kano: . /etc/bash_completion
Kano: then it works
michaellarabel: When you do s does it show the possible options?
Kano: but i would avoid calling something that requires X when you just run the dump options command
michaellarabel: PTS doesn't require X
Kano: when i force into a fault it definitely DOES
michaellarabel: It shouldn't.
Kano: michaellarabel: any fix for that soon?
michaellarabel: Kano: Fix for the X problem?
michaellarabel: I haven't been able to reproduce it / find where it's being called, since Phodevi is never even touched when using dump-possible-options
Kano: someting is executed
Kano: add a password for root
Kano: then use su
Kano: then you will see th bug
Kano: no su, not bug
PetoKraus: hello guys. Could you reccomend any wireless PCI card?
PetoKraus: i've got edimax Ralink rt2561 card, but it's quite bad
Kano: usally usb can be better placed
PetoKraus: i don't want stuff sticking out of my PC, but if you know any good one, please do share
Kano: then use external antenna
PetoKraus: well the problem is
PetoKraus: the thing keeps dropping connection
PetoKraus: intel 3945 in my laptop is fine
PetoKraus: same place almost
PetoKraus: the signal is strong enough. I think the chipset is just shite
Kano: michaellarabel: still no update?
Kano: DISPLAY= ./phoronix-test-suite
Kano: Could not startup.
Kano: even that does not work
michaellarabel: so when you run pts without any options it gives u that too?
Kano: try it yourself
Kano: sudo passwd
Kano: enter a passwd
Kano: then try to run it
vadi2: michaell the one page button broke for me
Kano: btw. did you know that you can use the xp mode file for win7 with vbox when you convert it to vmdk with qemu
michaellarabel: vadi2: How so? What is it doing?
vadi2: it's not showing up, and I've visited the forums
michaellarabel: try logging out of forums and back in
Kano: cabextract WindowsXPMode*.exe sources/xpm
Kano: qemu-img convert -f vpc VirtualXPVHD -O vmdk VirtualXP.vmdk
vadi2: I'm afraid that didn't work
Kano: then you can try it 30 days *g*
Kano: much faster than when you would install it from scratch
michaellarabel: vadi2: Are you seeing any ads?
vadi2: michaellarabel: I think my browser is blocking them, but it does seem to be fetching them
vadi2: it does say "Phoronix Premium: Ad-Free Browsing" top-right
michaellarabel: I just logged into a premium account and it's working fine
vadi2: I forget the pricing plans
michaellarabel: vadi2: What is your name on the forums?
michaellarabel: Did your subscription expire? It's not showing up any longer in the subscription manager.
vadi2: maybe, I'm not sure
michaellarabel: One second, let me experiment with some things to see what is up
vadi2: michaellarabel: oh its "Vadi"
michaellarabel: Kano: Still haven't been able to reproduce your X problem
Kano: did you try it with su?
Kano: maybe try it with kanotix
Kano: but usually ubuntu should have got the same issue
