openpowerbot[irc] <sadoon[m]1> My internet is terrible at the hotel, I'll push tomorrow when I'm at a cafe00:42
openpowerbot[irc] <sadoon[m]1> <sadoon[m]1> "Yes the RAM is a big bonus but..." <- lkcl I'm interested in this specifically, do you kbow if 32MB will be enough for booting Linux?00:43
openpowerbot[irc] <sadoon[m]1> I was only half-joking talking about replacing the SDRAM btw, if there are 128MB chips it should be doable, I know a guy who's good at soldering00:44
openpowerbot[irc] <sadoon[m]1> But given how difficult it was to get the damn board I'll only consider it if necessary00:44
openpowerbot[irc] <programmerjake> fuller explanation of why the matrix bridge was shut down:

openpowerbot[irc] <lkcl> sadoon[m]1, hooray, now you understand *why* we have the strict rule about not having massive dependencies! it's precisely so that in the situation you are in (which i was for *four years*) you can at least carry on working16:58
openpowerbot[irc] <lkcl> yes 32 MB of RAM is perfectly fine for booting openembedded / yocto embedded linux builds.16:58
openpowerbot[irc] <sadoon[m]1> I kind of assumed embedded linux would work but I'm thinking debian/gentoo sffs17:00
openpowerbot[irc] <sadoon[m]1> Perhaps we should add -Os to everything lmao17:00
openpowerbot[irc] <lkcl> yes i do believe there are now 128 mbit HyperRAM ICs available, now - maybe even 256 mbit. QTY 2of Quad HyperRAM PCBs would give you far more17:00
openpowerbot[irc] <lkcl> :)17:00
openpowerbot[irc] <sadoon[m]1> Are those PMOD?17:00
openpowerbot[irc] <sadoon[m]1> I didn't look into them yet17:01
lkclyes. QTY 2of PMODs.17:01
lkclwe really do need to do the PCBs ourselves, find the components.17:01
openpowerbot[irc] <sadoon[m]1> Perfect17:01
openpowerbot[irc] <sadoon[m]1> ULX3S has PMODs17:01
lkclyes it does - and there is a PMOD-to-Feather converter that cesar found17:04
lkclbut, again, that needs the PCB to be made and assembled.17:04
lkcli know someone who can likely do it.17:04
lkclgimme sec to find links17:06
