[00:10:22] <Antitrack> yeah
[00:10:24] <Antitrack> go for the kernel
[00:10:41] <Antitrack> and post some ready distro image on google drive or somesuch
[00:15:44] <dddddd> (no comment)
[18:09:51] <dddddd> jo0nas, xcko, mainline kernel (5.1.1 here) lacks the backlight entry in the dts. After adding it I can use /sys/class/backlight.
[18:23:33] <jo0nas> interesting!
[18:24:08] <jo0nas> Care to push as a patch for mainline linux?
[18:25:28] <jo0nas> does it require 5.1.1 or is it likely to work on older kernels too? Care to share a diff?
[18:26:00] <dddddd> &pwm is also needed
[18:26:21] <dddddd> see via
[18:26:44] <dddddd> It worked back then too.
[18:39:03] <dddddd> Andre is anarsoul and MoeIcenowy is Icenowy Zheng, right?
[20:17:40] <dddddd> I was talking with anarsoul, and comparing the dts with the pinebook one. &pwm can be simplified (just need the "status" line). The backlight node might need some work (even if it works for me) power-supply and/or regulator-fixed needs investigation.
[20:19:13] <dddddd> About the recent u-boot (that I can't make it to work) I'll ask Icenowy.
