[09:33] <defy> hey jcoxon, do you use a cf card on your gumstix?
[09:33] <jcoxon> no
[09:33] <defy> okie
[09:33] <jcoxon> i actually leave the 92pin header empty
[09:33] <jcoxon> don't like the overhang off the side of the cf card
[09:34] <jcoxon> Peg II used a cf gps
[09:34] <jcoxon> caused alot of issues if not firmly secured to the boards
[09:34] <jcoxon> defy, so the serial camera works!
[09:34] <defy> yup, serial cam is working great now...now i just have this darn cf problem
[09:34] <defy> and i cant use my netmmc because the ethernet device conflicts with ttyS3, which the cam uses
[09:35] <defy> it also drains power like crazy =/ I might just order a new gumstix with mmc onboard
[09:35] <jcoxon> whats the quality and refresh rate of the camera
[09:35] <jcoxon> do you need the ethernet?
[09:35] <jcoxon> cut the trace!
[09:37] <defy> yea thats what i was thinking
[09:37] <defy> but i wouldnt know where to cut to make sure it was fully disconnected
[09:38] <defy> cam is 640/480, 1 picture every 2 seconds at this stage
[09:38] <jcoxon> asking on the list would probably reveal all
[09:38] <defy> but slowing it down only prolongs the amount of time before the fs goes corrupt, it doesn't prevent it
[09:38] <jcoxon> also the eagle schematics would certainly help
[09:38] <defy> yea, well i have the netmmc planned for another project anyway
[09:38] <jcoxon> had to use them to cut a trace on the waysmall to stop it converting a serial port to rs232
[09:38] <jcoxon> oh right
[09:39] <defy> i do have 2 though, and one is kind of broken, so possibly
[09:40] <defy> i always thought CF would be stable though
[09:40] <defy> its quite a strange issue, i guess its not a reliable media for real time stuff
[09:41] <jcoxon> i thought it was reliable as well
[09:42] <jcoxon> could it be a kernel issue rather then a linux issue
[09:42] <jcoxon> check the arm mailing list of any other issues
[09:42] <defy> hrm, true..will check it out
[09:44] <jcoxon> you've got a reply :-)
[09:46] <defy> hrm, interesting
[10:37] <defy> so who's project was nova again?
[12:52] <jcoxon> nova are group of engineers at cambridge
[13:03] <defy> ah okay
