ask your supervisor more detailed questions and follow his advice.

Why do a large majority of responses posted to the board say to ask some advisor? Doesn't that defeat the purpose of a message board and sharing the responses so as to also get it in Google search results for people in the future wanting the same things, avoiding more flood of repeated questions?

What about those of us who need answers to questions that have no "advisor"? I asked one not to long ago and the only responses given were to ask an advisor yet I do not have one. Seems counter productive to an open source project.

Generally people will respond like this if they feel that a question is
coming from someone who has not done any kind of research on their own
before bringing it to the mailing list.

If you post a question that's vague, not a standard use case, and you
don't provide any info regarding what you've tried before, resources
you've already read, and people you've already talked to, most times
the list members will tell you to do all those first before asking on
the list. You need a minimum amount of knowledge before the list can
be helpful and often, if you sound like you haven't gained that minimum
knowledge yet, the list won't be able to help without being those
resources for you.

Require reading for asking questions:

Yeah that I can understand, but who are these advisor's? Are they basically saying to ask a teacher? Just trying to understand why people suggest that as an answer, instead of say go read some beginning wiki or article they might have missed or been unable to find due to not knowing the proper query to search to find relevant results.

Granted mine were I got that response was me miss-reading a section and later finally clicked after re-reading it numerous times.

Just curious as this is the only board I have seen pass that as a response.

Thanks

I'd guess either a teacher / professor / teaching assistant for those
who are in school or a more senior person at their company for those
employed. In either case, the "adviser" would probably point the
person towards high quality resources to read before taking their
question to the list.

Now that this thread is suitably off topic... :slight_smile:

Thanks for your information and sorry for the OT reply, was something I was curious on.

OK back to the previously scheduled topic :stuck_out_tongue:

In this specific case, the original poster stated "my supervisor told
that to load the qt in ARM and use the DSP for capturing and process
it to save in HDD." Therefore, this poster's first line of
questioning should be to his supervisor for more information. The
balance all mailing lists for OSS projects struggle to find is between
helping community members who are genuinely interested in
participating in and contributing to a project vs. spending time
doling out free support to companies who's supervisor's can't be
bothered to help their engineers with detailed instructions. The ideal
would be for us to help the original poster as best we can, then for
the OP's employer (realtimetechnosoft.com) to make significant and
useful contributions back to the community. Sadly, in most (ok, 95%)
of cases, companies do not contribute back to the OSS projects they
utilize to generate revenue.

Thanks I did not realize that companies did that, that is pretty sad to hear. Makes much more sense to me now why I see that commonly in the BB messageboards.

It might be realtimetechnosoft.com or it might be a university where
he is getting a degree, in both cases I do not think we are obliged
to give basic embedded Linux courses here - and we cannot in fact.

Hi,

You can use the TV application
It can be done using separate chip or another processor too…

You looks like in start-up stage go head…and add more inputs…
Don,t think you wasted the time of this guys…
Start-up stage it will always like that…They may forget before time they too learners…

All the best
