<sneek>Welcome back damo22, you have 2 messages!
<sneek>damo22, gnucode says: You said that you "wrote the bios" on your HP T620. What? Did you code your own custom BIOS? How hard was that?
<sneek>damo22, gnucode says: Nevermind, you were customizing coreboot, which is still pretty cool. I didn't realize that the Hurd could run on an Open Source BIOS. That's good news.
<damo22>yes, gnumach boots in PIC mode but not with APIC on this AMD machine
<damo22>but something is still messed up because it does not detect the AHCI device
<damo22>maybe the PIRQ table is interfering with ACPI
<damo22>hurd boots on HP T620 with coreboot!

<damo22>my hurd seems to try to launch a second pci-arbiter and freezes
<etno>damo22: there can be only one... Expect a quickening :'-)
<damo22>"lspci -A hurd" hangs the console
<gnucode>working on turning on my laptop.
<gnucode>looks like its so cold that the screen is not displaying anything.
<solid_black>hey gnucode!
<gnucode>sorry im a little late.
<jab>ok let me try logging into the jitsi thing.
<jab>hmmm why is my nick wrong?
<jab>solid_black: don't know why my nick is not gnucode, but whatever.
<jab>The Hurd New Year's party is starting soon.
<jab>You need a modern web browser to join in.
<jab>If there is a password, it'll be SMPBABY
<jab> well that's sad.
<jab>I have a recording of the meeting, but I can only hear myself speak. :(
<azert>I’ve seen solid_black email about another Hurd distribution. Great news! I hope it develops into something with personality
<azert>I also hate Debian, I totally understand why we need alternatives
<azert>I would have opted with Flavio scripts coupled with something like homebrew
<azert>Made me think about this discussion I once lurked:
<solid_black>(I hope I have made it quite clear both during the call and in the mail that I don't hate Debian at all, quite the opposite)
<azert>Of course it’s the base of Ubuntu
<azert>« Ubuntu is an ancient African word meaning 'humanity to others'. It is often described as reminding us that 'I am what I am because of who we all are'. »
