[0:01] <Kostic> Hello everybody...
[0:01] <mrdragons> Hola
[0:02] <ShiftPlusOne> ahoy
[0:03] <Kostic> :D
[0:03] <Kostic> whats the status?
[0:03] <Kostic> and is Sopa protest still on site?
[0:03] <Kostic> because SOPA is under ice, as i have heard...
[0:04] <haltdef> PIPA isn't
[0:04] <Kostic> I know... Is there any draft which will list potential distributors of Raspi
[0:04] <Kostic> ?
[0:05] <haltdef> nothing like that yet
[0:06] <haltdef> you can do a test order of some stickers to get a rough idea of postage to your country, if that's what you're worried about

[0:07] <Kostic> u read my mind :D
[0:07] <Kostic> And did they decided which OS will be the default?
[0:08] <mrdragons> Prolly redhat/fedora or debian, apparently more toward the former
[0:08] <haltdef> none if you don't buy an sd card
[0:08] * Rob__ is now known as ^robertj
[0:09] <mrdragons> They'll still have an official pre-made image
[0:09] <haltdef> I thought there would be more than one?
[0:10] <Kostic> I would like to see some experimenting Plan 9 from Bell Labs on Raspi videos... :)
[0:10] <mrdragons> There will, but they'll have one "main" one to prevent excessive fragmentation and provide a more universal platform for education
[0:10] <haltdef> ah right
[0:20] <traeak> Kostic: ahh yes, plan9 fun stuff

[0:43] <sightlight> hi hi hi]]
[0:47] <emusan> wai hai
[0:48] <sightlight> hello
[0:48] <sightlight> I was asking myself if codeweaver would port for raspberry pi
[0:49] <cornet> as in the commecial version of wine ?
[0:49] <cornet> I doubt it - would be far too slow
[0:49] <traeak> all right! more windows
[0:50] <sightlight> making a layer for for it to work for ARM procesor
[0:50] <traeak> sightlight: i think you should lead the effort for a windows port to the rpi
[0:50] <sightlight> s
[0:50] <cornet> haha
[0:50] <emusan> lol
[0:50] <traeak> i bet reactos could be ported
[0:50] <sightlight> i know im always with the same subjet
[0:50] <traeak> hehe
[0:50] <sightlight> reactos?
[0:50] <emusan> just port qemu :P
[0:50] <victhor> I suggest you stop thinking of it. It will be far too slow to be useable.
[0:50] <victhor> especially for games
[0:51] <emusan> pfff speed
[0:51] <emusan> you don't use windows for it's efficiency
[0:51] * ratxue (~chatzilla@host-89-241-166-147.as13285.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:51] <cornet> victhor: s/games/anything/ ... apart from maybe "hello world"
[0:51] <victhor> even hello world...
[0:51] <victhor> I remember running windows xp on kqemu a loooong time ago, I guess 2006 or so.
[0:52] <sightlight> qemu emulates x86?
[0:52] <victhor> it was slooooooow. I barely managed to get XP to install, and that was in a Athlon XP.
[0:52] <traeak> somethign like that
[0:52] <victhor> 2 GHz
[0:52] <emusan> sightlight: yesh
[0:52] <cornet> they should do a RasberryPi MOS version
[0:52] <victhor> kqemu is faster than qemu iirc.
[0:52] <cornet> (moon on a stick)
[0:52] <emusan> there was a psp qemu port iirc
[0:52] <emusan> could even boot windows 3.1 I think
[0:52] <emusan> after a few minutes
[0:53] <victhor> but only works for emulating the same architecture. You can't use kqemu on ARM (if it exists) to emulate x86, and it would be too slow anyway

[0:53] * Shy (Shy@pdpc/supporter/professional/shy) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:54] <sightlight> well i think i heard in the forums that qemu worked on the raspberry pi
[0:54] <victhor> working != being usable
[0:54] <cornet> and i suspect you read that people were using qemu to emulate raspberry pi
[0:54] <sightlight> is it a port?
[0:54] <victhor> I wouldn't doubt it working. But I think it would take a hour to execute a "hello world" in x86 assembler.
[0:54] <cornet> yer
[0:55] <sightlight> they cant improve it?
[0:55] <sightlight> i mean...
[0:55] <emusan> not enough to make it useable
[0:55] <victhor> the processor is too slow
[0:55] <sightlight> damn..
[0:55] <cornet> there is only so many hamsters you can cram into a credit card
[0:55] <sightlight> i mean
[0:55] <sightlight> ]dang
[0:55] <emusan> if you /really/ want windows, you could do a remote desktop type thing
[0:56] <sightlight> man
[0:56] <emusan> just get a dedicated windows box and use the rpi to log into it
[0:56] <emusan> that's about your only real option
[0:56] <sightlight> I did knew this procesor was sooo slow.......
[0:56] <emusan> its not really slow
[0:56] * hamitron (~hamitron@just.screw-the.eu) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:56] <emusan> just emulating a whole architecture is very hard to do
[0:56] <victhor> you are just expecting too much from it
[0:56] <traeak> d00dz can i like get osx to like run on teh rpi d00dz ?
[0:56] <emusan> it ran on the psp
[0:56] <victhor> use a ppc emulator lol :P
[0:56] <emusan> took only like 10 mins to boot or something :P
[0:56] <cornet> traeak: shuttit you
[0:57] <emusan> I wont be happy until I have a native vista port!
[0:57] <traeak> nah man, windows ME is da bomb
[0:57] <ratxue> guy called dave small let you run macos on the atari st back in the day
[0:57] <_inc> can atari os run on RPi? :P
[0:58] <emusan> oooh
[0:58] <emusan> I want Amiga!
[0:58] <cornet> workbench
[0:59] <_inc> i was thinking of replicating a 80s gen OS for an "Raspberry Pi in a keyboard" approach
[0:59] <emusan> but really, traeak, are you thinking of haiku?
[0:59] <_inc> I can't bring myself to gut a classic machine for such a case though
[0:59] <traeak> emusan: i'm more intellectually interested in plan9 honestly
[0:59] <emusan> never heard of it...
[1:00] <emusan> oooh, looks nice
[1:00] <ratxue> Inferno runs arm
[1:00] <cornet> shame qnx went closed source
[1:01] <sightlight> so qemu is ported?
[1:01] <sightlight> or compiled?
[1:01] <sightlight> for arm
[1:01] <cornet> doubt it, could be wrong
[1:02] * hamitron (~hamitron@just.screw-the.eu) Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[1:02] * hamitron (~hamitron@just.screw-the.eu) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:04] <emusan> how hard would it be to interface the rpi with a really old laptop screen?
[1:04] <cousteau> emusan, trying to revive a computer?
[1:04] * warddr (~warddr@Wikipedia/Warddr) Quit (Ping timeout: 240 seconds)
[1:04] <hamitron> harder than a hdmi tv
[1:05] <emusan> maybe
[1:05] <hamitron> ;)
[1:05] <emusan> I've got a really old laptop running win95, but I can't get it to boot anything...
[1:05] <emusan> I figure if I gut it I could easily fit an rpi+tons of other stuff lol
[1:07] <_inc> emusan: I was reading on this lastnight. apparently some of the old laptop screens accepted VGA signals, but you have to solder the relevant VGA cable pin to its equvelent on the LCD ribbon cable (which is hard)
[1:07] <emusan> hmm...
[1:07] <emusan> this one is probably old enough lol
[1:07] <emusan> but I don't have it here with me :(
[1:07] <_inc> on newer laptops, there is some sorta sstandard. I read there was a $60 converter but i couldnt see it due to deadlink
[1:08] <victhor> the problem with interfacing those LCDs is that the interfaces available require a awkward amount of conversions
[1:08] <cousteau> emusan, not even slitaz?
[1:08] <emusan> slitaz?
[1:09] <emusan> well it wouldn't boot from cd...
[1:09] <emusan> I might have maybe been able to get it to boot from serial or something
[1:09] <emusan> but I've never done anything like that before
[1:09] * cornet will be using RCA as have nothing that accepts hdmi
[1:09] <_inc> emusan: i believe i read a couple of informing posts on the forum actually
[1:09] <emusan> I was thinking of taking out the HDD then using an adapter to connect it to a normal compy then installing something on that...
[1:09] <emusan> but that's too much imo
[1:10] * Shift_ (~Shift@202-161-16-159.dyn.iinet.net.au) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:10] <emusan> lol if I could actually get a laptop from the 90's to support hdmi that would be amazing
[1:11] <_inc> emusan: LVDS is the standard i was on about

[1:11] <emusan> oops
[1:12] <hamitron> emusan, no floppy drive?
[1:12] <emusan> not in the laptop, and I only own one that's full size desktop IDE...

[1:15] <victhor> LVDS is easy, only 1 IC to convert the LCD output of the pi into a LVDS signal
[1:15] <emusan> oooh
[1:16] <victhor> the one I saw however, had a relatively low maximum resolution supported and came in a BGA package
[1:16] <emusan> ouch...
[1:16] <emusan> well...
[1:16] <emusan> I think my school has a decent reflow oven...
[1:16] <emusan> so BGA isn't the worst...

[1:18] <_inc> victhor: so i guess that the difficulty comes in powering the display panel then?
[1:19] <victhor> oh the max res on that one is 1920x1200x18. I thought it was 1024x768... I must have been thinking of something else
[1:19] <victhor> _inc, I guess so...

[2:33] <LiENUS> in nglilshplox
[2:33] <emusan> false advertising imo
[2:33] <emusan> ~34 f
[2:33] <tntexplosivesltd> that means nothing to me
[2:33] <emusan> or maybe 36
[2:33] <emusan> uhh...
[2:33] <emusan> what do you want it to be?
[2:33] <tntexplosivesltd> use the proper measurements
[2:34] <emusan> kelvin is proper lol
[2:34] * warddr (~warddr@Wikipedia/Warddr) has joined #raspberrypi
[2:34] <hamitron> there is no such thing as a "proper" unit ;)
[2:34] <emusan> there are standards though
[2:35] <tntexplosivesltd> ??K or ??C
[2:35] <tntexplosivesltd> a either of those are acceptable
[2:35] <hamitron> I bet more people use F than K
[2:35] <hamitron> :)
[2:35] <tntexplosivesltd> because they actually make sense
[2:35] <emusan> not in the science community
[2:35] <emusan> where it matters
[2:36] <tntexplosivesltd> and I doubt it
[2:36] <tntexplosivesltd> all of asia ise C
[2:36] <tntexplosivesltd> * use
[2:36] <tntexplosivesltd> and europe
[2:36] <tntexplosivesltd> seriously, americans> There are hardly any of you
[2:36] <tntexplosivesltd> not that you'd notice
[2:36] <emusan> he said more K than f though...
[2:36] <emusan> not C
[2:36] * hamitron uses F
[2:36] <emusan> obviously more C
[2:36] <tntexplosivesltd> Olol
[2:36] <tntexplosivesltd> XD
[2:37] <hamitron> emusan, glad someone noticed :)
[2:37] <LiENUS> funny thing is only america uses the metric clock and calendar
[2:37] <emusan> metric clock?
[2:37] <LiENUS> bb in 5 milliharns
[2:38] <LiENUS> sry centiharns
[2:38] <emusan> wtf...
[2:38] <emusan> never heard of it lol
[2:38] <LiENUS> you american?
[2:38] <hamitron> we should just use the Sun imo
[2:38] <emusan> I'm american...
[2:38] <hamitron> shorter days when it gets cold ;)

[2:38] <tntexplosivesltd> there is no metric clock...
[2:38] <ShiftPlusOne> the sun isn't a very good keeper of time if you want to be exact
[2:39] <hamitron> exact to what?
[2:39] <hamitron> :/
[2:39] <LiENUS> exact to the sun
[2:39] <emusan> tiny bits of seconds
[2:39] <ShiftPlusOne> if you want to account for every millisecond
[2:39] <hamitron> probably not great for telling what hour..... in the UK ;)
[2:39] <emusan> what about nanosecond?
[2:39] <emusan> or picosecond?
[2:39] <emusan> you need atomic for those...

[2:40] <emusan> you need better friends :P
[2:41] <emusan> friends don't let friends be nanoseconds late
[2:41] <hamitron> :)
[2:41] <tntexplosivesltd> I'm not often late. But when I am, it's by just a few nanoseconds
[2:42] <emusan> a wizard is never late ;)
[2:42] <tntexplosivesltd> he arrives precisely when he means to
[2:42] <hamitron> I think my unit of time for work late is days, tbh
[2:42] <victhor> guess I'll be having my NAS soon enough :)

[2:56] <acfrazier> Today, the Wikipedia community has decided to black out the English-language Wikipedia for 24 hours, worldwide, beginning at 05:00 UTC on Wednesday, January 18.
[2:56] <acfrazier> you know, the only person this hurts is end users like us.
[2:57] <acfrazier> which is why I am making an offline mirror of wikipedia as I speak.
[2:57] <tntexplosivesltd> yeaha

[2:57] <acfrazier> lol
[2:58] <emusan> it raises awareness...
[2:58] <_inc> oh brilliant. this is going to go down well with us british students studying for exams
[2:59] <emusan> which imo is better for everyone...
[3:02] <_inc> why is this still hapenning? i heard the sopa bill was shot down?
[3:03] <emusan> still pipa... but yea
[3:05] <Hideki> people studied for exams before wikipedia
[3:05] <Hideki> and you shouldn't be using wikipedia as a primary source anyway
[3:06] <emusan> that too
[3:06] <_inc> but its good to get the tidbits to of information to look further into
[3:07] <tntexplosivesltd> use encarta?
[3:07] <tntexplosivesltd> XD
[3:07] <_inc> Wikipedia supplemented with Library books are such a cost effective way of studying
[3:12] <emusan> what are you studying?
[3:12] <tntexplosivesltd> Ima say trombone
[3:12] <tntexplosivesltd> or another vrass instrument
[3:12] <tntexplosivesltd> * brass
[3:12] <tntexplosivesltd> as a tertiary course
[3:13] <_inc> emusan: computer science
[3:13] <tntexplosivesltd> ckise
[3:13] <tntexplosivesltd> * close
[3:13] <emusan> lol
[3:17] <victhor> note to self: do not attempt to kill the deal on a $35 computer by designing large amounts of unnecessary expansion boards
[3:17] <emusan> lol
[3:18] <tntexplosivesltd> heh
[3:18] <tntexplosivesltd> ima make my own
[3:18] <emusan> just do one "Mega expansion board"
[3:18] <emusan> imma proly make one tooz
[3:18] <tntexplosivesltd> one $3000 board that does EVERYTHING
[3:18] <emusan> lol
[3:18] <victhor> I mean, the RTC board I wanted to build would come cheap. But then I decided to add a temperature sensor...
[3:19] <emusan> includes an i7 processor
[3:19] <victhor> ...and later even one that took a barrel jack input and provided a 5V regulated output, plus a 4 cell NiMH battery charger
[3:19] <victhor> even a ic for measuring charge level...
[3:19] <tntexplosivesltd> heh
[3:19] <emusan> nice
[3:20] <victhor> it's all on my cad software, I did send the first board with the RTC to be manufactured, though]
[3:21] <victhor> since I actually needed the rtc
[3:23] <victhor> actually the ones with the batteries were designed after I found 8 similar NiMH AA cells around my parts box, along with 2 battery holders for 4 batteries each.
[3:23] <emusan> what cad software do you use?
[3:23] <victhor> eagle
[3:23] <emusan> ah
[3:23] <tntexplosivesltd> heh
[3:24] <victhor> I thought "I don't want to throw these away, let's find a excuse to use them" I eventually found one...
[3:24] <emusan> tntexplosivesltd: what do you use?
[3:24] <tntexplosivesltd> *cough* Altium *cough*
[3:24] <tntexplosivesltd> I... found it.....
[3:25] <tntexplosivesltd> >.>
[3:25] <emusan> lol
[3:25] <tntexplosivesltd> <.<
[3:25] <tntexplosivesltd> >.>

[3:53] <emusan> more reasonable lol
[4:02] <sightlight> hey guys
[4:02] <emusan> hiya
[4:02] <sightlight> linux is not derectX, is Open GL right?
[4:02] <emusan> linux doesn't have to use either...
[4:03] <tntexplosivesltd> ???_???
[4:03] <emusan> lol tnt
[4:04] <sightlight> what d you mean linux doesnt have to use eaiter?
[4:04] <emusan> they're graphics libraries...
[4:04] <tntexplosivesltd> it doesn;t need any graphics libs
[4:05] <emusan> I mean if you were programming a game for linux you would use opengl most likley, but you don't even have to do that
[4:06] <sightlight> if linux doesnt need it then why didi the even make them for linux
[4:06] <emusan> but why are you asking anyway?
[4:06] <emusan> just because it doesn't /need/ it doesn't mean that it doesn't help if you have something graphically intensive
[4:06] <emusan> opengl will make better use of your hardware than most other things
[4:06] <emusan> but it's entirely unnecessary for most stuff asside from games...
[4:06] <tntexplosivesltd> ???_???
[4:07] <tntexplosivesltd> (??????????????????? ?????????
[4:08] <emusan> does FF require opengl?
[4:08] <tntexplosivesltd> nope
[4:08] <emusan> lol I might not even have it installed then...
[4:08] <emusan> hmm...
[4:08] <sightlight> FF?
[4:08] <emusan> firefox
[4:08] <emusan> generally
[4:08] <tntexplosivesltd> sightlight: why are you asking? What are you trying to do
[4:08] <emusan> or friendly fire
[4:08] <tntexplosivesltd> or final fantasy
[4:09] <emusan> ah true
[4:09] <tntexplosivesltd> although that's normally followed by a number
[4:09] <emusan> yea
[4:09] <emusan> FFIX = bestest
[4:09] <tntexplosivesltd> mhm
[4:09] <tntexplosivesltd> then they made a movie ._.
[4:10] <emusan> not of 9 :(
[4:10] <tntexplosivesltd> the movie was horrible
[4:10] <tntexplosivesltd> like, really bad

[4:11] <emusan> sightlight: nope... might be awhile before that happens
[4:11] <mrdragons> Ew, directX is gross
[4:11] <emusan> isn't it for win8?
[4:11] <tntexplosivesltd> lol
[4:11] <sightlight> why you say so emu?
[4:12] <emusan> why would they release it for win7 when they could make more money forcing people to upgrade?
[4:12] <emusan> same with dx10/vista
[4:12] <emusan> but I don't really keep up with M$ stuff
[4:12] <sightlight> windows 8/X12?

[4:14] <emusan> look at the money they spend on preconfigured PC's...
[4:14] <emusan> there's a reason alienware is still around
[4:14] <tntexplosivesltd> hahaha yeah
[4:14] <victhor> no... they want the green lights
[4:14] <mrdragons> True
[4:14] <victhor> not the hardware.
[4:14] <tntexplosivesltd> idiots!
[4:14] <tntexplosivesltd> XD
[4:14] <victhor> $5 in digikey and you can make your own...
[4:14] <emusan> I had an old alienware case that I got for $20
[4:14] <tntexplosivesltd> inb4 sightlight has an alienware
[4:14] <tntexplosivesltd> XD
[4:15] <mrdragons> Be nice. >_>
[4:15] <sightlight> WHAT IS INB4?
[4:15] <emusan> came with lights and had a 500W power supply
[4:15] <sightlight> caps off
[4:15] <emusan> in before
[4:15] <victhor> I know people who want alienware computers just because they have green lights and all the funky stuff.
[4:15] <tntexplosivesltd> read it out lol
[4:15] <victhor> the guy knows it's overpriced, but he likes the looks. :P
[4:15] <tntexplosivesltd> victhor: cleanse them with fire
[4:15] <emusan> yeah, but you can get the same looks with customs too
[4:15] <tntexplosivesltd> the people I mean
[4:15] <emusan> lol
[4:15] <victhor> my computer is under the desk, I don't even bother lol.
[4:15] <mrdragons> That's the stupidest thing I've ever heard, buying a computer for the looks
[4:15] <emusan> my computer is a laptop
[4:16] <emusan> mrdragons: lol apple
[4:16] <tntexplosivesltd> hehehe
[4:16] <mrdragons> At least apple makes a decent (al beit incredibly overpriced and limited) product
[4:16] <emusan> yeah...
[4:16] <emusan> they're nicely built
[4:16] <mrdragons> You can make anything from alienware exponetially cheaper
[4:17] <victhor> do pc laptops still come with expresscard slots?
[4:17] <tntexplosivesltd> then it breaks and you pay through the urethra to fix it
[4:17] <sightlight> the higher the open GL is the better it emulates Direct X ?
[4:17] <emusan> victhor: no
[4:17] <emusan> not that I know of
[4:17] <victhor> thought so. too bad
[4:17] <victhor> mine came with none. Only a SD card reader
[4:17] <emusan> sightlight: openGL isn't a DX emulator...
[4:17] <emusan> that's absurd...
[4:17] <victhor> last time I saw one it was a crappy /34 slot
[4:17] <emusan> mine has a "multicard reader"
[4:17] <tntexplosivesltd> sightlight: it doesn't emulate DX... I just...
[4:17] <sightlight> wine does that emu.
[4:17] <emusan> it does SD and MC
[4:17] <emusan> sightlight: opengl != wine
[4:18] <emusan> *facepalm*
[4:18] <emusan> lol
[4:18] <emusan> sorry, had to a bit there...
[4:18] <tntexplosivesltd> ????????? ???( ?? _ ?????) Calm down bro
[4:18] <tntexplosivesltd> XD
[4:18] <victhor> uh linux was not developed as a windows compatible os
[4:18] <emusan> and WINE doesn't emulate it either...
[4:18] <tntexplosivesltd> look you're turning into me =D
[4:18] <mrdragons> Wine is not an emulator. :P
[4:18] <emusan> WINE Is Not an Emulator :P

[4:19] <mrdragons> Recursive names ftw
[4:19] <tntexplosivesltd> hooray cynacism
[4:19] <sightlight> what matter in a video card then?

[4:19] <emusan> 1 0 1 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 0

[4:19] <emusan> that's crysis

[4:19] <tntexplosivesltd> it is what we are made of
[4:20] <tntexplosivesltd> mrdragons: true

[4:20] <victhor> what matters in a video card.... that it's made by nvidia
[4:20] <emusan> it's what everything's made of :P
[4:20] <emusan> hey!

[4:21] * emusan has 3 cores of POWA
[4:21] <victhor> with nvidia
[4:21] <victhor> :P
[4:21] <victhor> kind of a stupid system. nforce 430 chipset from ages ago, with a athlon II x4 and generic RAM
[4:21] <emusan> sightlight: so why do you wanna know about graphics libraries anyway?
[4:21] <emusan> mine's a nice new system...
[4:21] <emusan> new-ish
[4:22] <emusan> Radeon m5650
[4:22] <emusan> Phenom x3
[4:22] <tntexplosivesltd> hahaha amd
[4:22] <sightlight> thinking about a whole new system instead of a PI.
[4:22] <sightlight> but I dont know
[4:22] <victhor> you can't compare the two
[4:22] <sightlight> I dont think I really need one
[4:22] <emusan> new system?
[4:23] <tntexplosivesltd> you're probably bot the best person...
[4:23] <victhor> if you want to game buy a pc or a console.
[4:23] <sightlight> thogh what I have right now is a netook GMA 500
[4:23] <victhor> if you want to do something that doesn't require a powerful computer, then a pi is okay
[4:23] <emusan> if you wanna browse the web and do daily stuff rpi should be great
[4:23] <emusan> but it wont run crysis
[4:23] <Hideki> or make a very power efficient wearable computer
[4:23] <emusan> should play zork just fine though :P
[4:24] <tntexplosivesltd> nothing should run crysis
[4:24] <mrdragons> Hey, MUDs are cool. :P
[4:24] <Hideki> everything from and including the altair can play zork -.o
[4:24] <tntexplosivesltd> =D
[4:24] <emusan> I gotta get into those
[4:24] <emusan> anyone play LORD?

[4:29] <tntexplosivesltd> afk going home
[4:33] <sightlight> raspberrypi
[4:33] <sightlight> do you guys know of an extreme powwer eficient PSU?
[4:33] <Hideki> switchmode are pretty power efficient as a rule
[4:33] <Hideki> and most of them are that now
[4:34] <Hideki> I assume the pi doesn't come with one (or an SD card) but it has a regulator on board so will probably be pretty forgiving
[4:34] <piofcube> Hell... 4 hours of trying to work out why 2 motherboards decided to die at the same time... Turns out it was a faulty monitor LMAO
[4:35] <sightlight> i mean for desktops PC
[4:35] <ShiftPlusOne> I doubt there's really much difference between different atx power supplies
[4:35] <ShiftPlusOne> despite what it says on the box
[4:35] <victhor> there is...
[4:35] <sightlight> the all drain power like heck right?
[4:35] <ShiftPlusOne> why would there be?
[4:36] <victhor> a $20 PSU won't perform nearly as good as a $50 one
[4:36] <ShiftPlusOne> no, they are actually pretty well designed
[4:36] <victhor> uh nope.
[4:36] <sightlight> hey guys
[4:36] <victhor> some are so bad, you'd be impressed.
[4:36] <sightlight> honestly
[4:36] <ShiftPlusOne> yeah? you can make a cheap, more efficient one yourself?
[4:36] <victhor> I meant the $20 ones
[4:36] <sightlight> is there a PSU that doesnt raise the power bill?
[4:37] <sightlight> I ditch my rig because of that
[4:37] <victhor> impossible
[4:37] <piofcube> yes.. one that's plugged into next door ;-)
[4:37] <victhor> hahaha
[4:37] <sightlight> ok
[4:37] <victhor> they are extremely badly designed if you compare them to the more expensive ones.
[4:37] <sightlight> so raspberry is efficient
[4:37] <ShiftPlusOne> I am talking about mid-range known brand PSU, not no-name chinese copies.
[4:37] <victhor> oh. these are well designed
[4:37] <victhor> thought you meant all of them,literally
[4:38] <ShiftPlusOne> nuh nuh, I have had enough pain with cheap PSUs to know otherwise
[4:38] <victhor> me too lol
[4:38] <ShiftPlusOne> though I think it's mostly cheap capacitors at fault
[4:38] <mrdragons> raspberry is basically a cell phone chip, so it's very low power

[4:38] <victhor> well except perhaps for seventeam and cooler master... they slip around quite a lot apparently
[4:38] <piofcube> I have seen some good brands which have very bad output... seesawing on the 5v rail... bouncing between -1 and +8v
[4:38] <Hideki> holy shit
[4:39] <ShiftPlusOne> ahm.... that wouldn't work...
[4:39] <Hideki> very bad seems to be something of an understatement
[4:39] <sightlight> im poor so i have to stick low power cosumtion
[4:39] <piofcube> That was brand new also.. fresh out the box... I was... erm annoyed
[4:39] <victhor> "low power consumption" and "gaming" umm... get a wii lol
[4:40] <ShiftPlusOne> faulty hardware covered by warranty or what?
[4:40] <piofcube> Got a replacement and the exact same fault... got money back no problem
[4:40] <sightlight> :/
[4:40] <ShiftPlusOne> annoying
[4:40] <Hideki> I've seen some evilness from cheap psus but nothing like that
[4:41] <Hideki> 12v hitting more than 13 etc.
[4:41] <ShiftPlusOne> meh, components have a few volts tolerance (or should) anyway.
[4:41] <sightlight> nvidia egra
[4:41] <sightlight> tegra
[4:41] <sightlight> low poer :)
[4:41] <ShiftPlusOne> especially at 12v, really shouldn't matter.
[4:42] <victhor> I used to have this "450W" cheap ass PSU, then I bought a new antec one, 500W, because that cheap PSU was almost failing completely and I didn't want to lose my computer to it
[4:42] <Hideki> well, I think the rule of thumb is usually +/-10%
[4:42] <victhor> the new PSU weighs a lot more... maybe twice as much lol.
[4:43] <ShiftPlusOne> yeah, but also many 5v components are designed to work at 3.3v and vice-versa (though they wouldn't put it in a datasheet, obviously)
[4:43] <victhor> sightlight, I don't think any of these will be a considerable improvement over your netbook

[4:51] * paul- (u4804@gateway/web/irccloud.com/x-jequsjjbgvjroaks) has joined #raspberrypi
[4:51] <ShiftPlusOne> it's the CPU, RAM and disk IO which I would be worried about.
[4:52] <sightlight> logical data transfer
[4:54] <mrdragons> The disk io speeds are going to be the main killer methinks
[4:55] <mrdragons> Like if you've tried live distros off a USB drive, it would be even slower than that
[4:56] <mrdragons> Dare I say maybe CD-like speeds
[4:57] <ShiftPlusOne> I think live distros work great off USB... they're good at utilizing RAM... unfortunatly there's not much RAM to utilize on raspberry pi.
[4:57] <rm> okay so the GPU has 4 MB of RAM
[4:57] <mrdragons> It's slower than running off a disk, but not bad
[4:57] <ShiftPlusOne> rm, what do you mean by 'has'?
[4:57] <rm> looks like we are not getting 32-bit color on high resolutions
[4:58] <rm> ShiftPlusOne, in the Raspberry Pi the GPU seems to have 4 MB of dedicated video RAM
[4:58] <ShiftPlusOne> built into the chip or is that what it's using for the main buffer (or whatever it's called)?
[4:58] <rm> or maybe it chops off 4MB of the main RAM; http://pastebin.com/xpj2mYpw
[4:58] <rm> still 4 only
[4:59] <rm> I wouldn't be surprised to see 4 built into the GPU chip
[4:59] <ShiftPlusOne> It will chop off a lot more than 4, but I guess 4 is used for the actual framebuffer (or whatever).
[4:59] <rm> e.g. an SMI712 video chip used in laptops has the same 4 MB built right into it
[5:00] <emusan> /back
[5:00] <emusan> oops
[5:01] <ShiftPlusOne> yeah, the 4mb is just for the framebuffer
[5:02] <ShiftPlusOne> but as far as 32-bit color goes, most monitors lie and don't display 32-bit anyway... because they're jerks
[5:05] * victhor (~victhor@ Quit (Ping timeout: 240 seconds)
[5:05] <Hideki> 24 bit colour
[5:06] <Hideki> afaik, only specialised hardware does more than that
[5:06] <Hideki> it's 32 bit for convenience, onyl 24 are used for colour information as a rule
[5:06] <Hideki> the other 8 being either unused or used for alpha channel data depending on the application
[5:07] * cousteau (~cousteau@ Quit (Quit: The cmake is a lie!)
[5:07] <ShiftPlusOne> sounds about right
[5:07] <rm> it's sad
[5:07] <rm> because you can clearly tell between 16 and 32-bit
[5:07] <ShiftPlusOne> unless you're looking at undithered grayscale, it's hard to tell though
[5:07] <rm> on photos
[5:08] <Hideki> 16 bit is noticably bad, heh, on monitors, never seen it on papre but I imagine it'd be worse
[5:08] <rm> I don't mean photos of friends and family, stuff like http://interfacelift.com/
[5:08] <Hideki> soem LCD monitors do only 18 bit (262,144 colours), 6 bits per channel

[5:09] <Hideki> I'm not exactly sure, 16 bit is often 565 rather than 555
[5:10] <Hideki> although most of the information is in the green channel for some reason
[5:10] <Hideki> that's why component video works the way it does
[5:11] <Hideki> (not exactly sure but I think it sends intensity, red and blue and the device extracts the green from that, to save on bandwidth)
[5:12] <emusan> has more for green because of human eye...

[5:12] <emusan> we have more sensitivity to it...
[5:13] <rm> a palette of 15 shades: seven colours at two levels of brightness each, plus black.[9] The image resolution is 256??192... To conserve memory, colour is stored separate from the pixel bitmap in a low resolution, 32??24 grid overlay, corresponding to the character cells.
[5:13] <rm> :)
[5:14] <sightlight> Hey guys
[5:14] <rm> that's how ZX Spectrum did it, remembered that from the colors discussion
[5:14] <sightlight> to port XONOTIC to the raspberry pi, I just need to grad the source and compile it in a ARM procecor?
[5:15] <emusan> if you're lucky...
[5:15] * UnaClocker (~unaclocke@24-113-85-150.wavecable.com) Quit (Quit: Leaving...)
[5:16] <emusan> that's assuming that you have all the libraries, etc. built for arm as well and installed...
[5:16] <emusan> among other things
[5:17] <rm> Xonotic is a fork of Nexuiz
[5:17] <emusan> oh
[5:17] <rm> a top-end 3D shooter
[5:17] <emusan> then there is already an arm port lol
[5:18] <rm> I doubt it uses OpenGL ES
[5:18] <emusan> it runs on n900...
[5:18] <emusan> at least nexuiz does...
[5:18] <emusan> runs fine...
[5:18] <rm> oh then maybe it can...
[5:18] <sightlight> whaut?
[5:19] <mrdragons> The graphics aren't a ton better than qauke 3, I'd expect it to play
[5:19] <emusan> open arena on n900 is awesome
[5:19] <sightlight> xonotic doesnt need compilation?
[5:19] <emusan> particularly the controls
[5:19] <emusan> well you /could/ compile it
[5:19] <emusan> but someone else has probably done it for you
[5:19] <emusan> don't reinvent the wheel
[5:19] <mrdragons> I hate when people say that
[5:20] <emusan> :)
[5:20] <emusan> it's true though
[5:20] <emusan> have you ever worked with things like mecannums?
[5:20] <emusan> or omniwheels
[5:20] <emusan> no fun
[5:20] <sightlight> I could compile it strait into the arm platform and play?
[5:21] <sightlight> what about ETXreal?
[5:21] <sightlight> :)
[5:21] <emusan> why would you compile it?
[5:21] <emusan> iirc ETXreal wasn't complete...
[5:21] <emusan> or efficient...
[5:21] <emusan> but that might have changed
[5:21] <sightlight> real is still being developed
[5:21] <mrdragons> mecannums/omniwheels look pretty cool actually
[5:22] <emusan> well I haven't done too much with omniwheels...
[5:22] <emusan> they're probably not bad...
[5:22] <emusan> but mecannums are shite imo
[5:22] <emusan> it's a great concept...
[5:22] <emusan> but the little wheels remove pretty much any traction...
[5:23] <emusan> so unless you're on a nice thick carpet or a sticky floor it's not much more usefull...
[5:24] <emusan> and they're fiddly to assemble
[5:24] <mrdragons> That'd be pretty useful for moving things
[5:24] <mrdragons> Like furnature
[5:24] <emusan> I wouldn't trust a couch to them lol
[5:25] <emusan> a far better design is the one where the wheels can rotate
[5:25] <emusan> it takes a bit to switch from forward/backward to left/right but it's worth it
[5:26] <emusan> I don't remember what it's called though lol
[5:28] <mrdragons> But yeah, I hate that saying. It's so uncreative, and discourages trying to make anything better or different
[5:29] <mrdragons> Nothing evolves through distinct steps
[5:29] <emusan> well it depends on the circumstances...
[5:29] <emusan> if it's someone compiling something for arm that has already been compiled for arm there is no point
[5:29] <emusan> no innovation in that
[5:29] <emusan> just wasted time
[5:32] <emusan> you do much robotics work?
[5:32] <mrdragons> Nah, I'd like to though
[5:33] <emusan> I like doing it on my own sometimes...
[5:33] <emusan> but I did it on a team in highschool
[5:33] <emusan> wont make that mistake again lol
[5:34] <mrdragons> Was it that bad?
[5:35] <emusan> in some respects...
[5:35] <emusan> might have just been that team though...
[5:35] <emusan> had a tendency to blame the programmer(me)
[5:35] <emusan> or the pneumatics guy(also me)
[5:35] <emusan> or the electronics guy(also me) lol
[5:35] <mrdragons> lol
[5:35] <emusan> 90% of the time it ended up being mechanical failure...
[5:36] <emusan> like chains falling off
[5:36] <ShiftPlusOne> working in teams is much better
[5:36] <ShiftPlusOne> you just have to make sure you have a good team and that there's a good leader
[5:36] <emusan> I guess it depends on the team really
[5:36] <emusan> yeah
[5:36] <emusan> oh gawd...
[5:37] <emusan> our leader was the worst
[5:37] <emusan> an EE turned salesman...
[5:37] <emusan> how is that even possible???
[5:37] * _inc (~inc@unaffiliated/-inc/x-0498339) has joined #raspberrypi
[5:38] <ShiftPlusOne> easy
[5:38] <emusan> he just wasn't a good EE?
[5:38] <ShiftPlusOne> salary for a EE to design something... about 60k... sallary for the sales guy to sell it.... twice as much
[5:39] <emusan> lol true
[5:39] <emusan> but EE's are supposed to be socially awkward...
[5:39] <emusan> salespeople not so much
[5:39] <ShiftPlusOne> not a hard choice really
[5:39] <ShiftPlusOne> I haven't seen that actually
[5:39] <ShiftPlusOne> well I am socially awkward, but other EE's don't seem to be, lol
[5:39] <emusan> lol
[5:40] <ShiftPlusOne> but I mostly hung out with the double degree students doing management as well, so maybe they're more 'well rounded' or whatever
[5:41] <emusan> probably...

[5:49] <emusan> if it's not a game then most likely not...
[5:49] <sightlight> 32-bt
[5:49] <emusan> still not getting what opengl is...

[5:50] <sightlight> isnt there a command to see like in the pi?
[5:50] <emusan> to see what?
[5:50] <djerome> sightlight, type this in a shell "glxinfo"
[5:51] <djerome> um, without the quotes...

[5:52] <sightlight> trust me
[5:52] <sightlight> i know
[5:52] <sightlight> i can understand my self
[5:52] <sightlight> my gpu driver for ubuntu are half finished
[5:52] <emusan> ???
[5:52] <sightlight> GMA 500 google =code (go search)
[5:53] <emusan> what do you mean by half finished?
[5:53] <emusan> and your gpu driver?
[5:53] <emusan> you're writing a gpu driver?
[5:53] <sightlight> no
[5:54] <sightlight> there is only one gpu driver for my GMA 500 for ubuntu
[5:54] <sightlight> and its not done well.
[5:54] <emusan> oh...
[5:54] <djerome> sightlight, on linux running on the pi you might get an opengl library working, but it won't have direct rendering (wont use the hardware)
[5:54] <sightlight> cant even run on my netbook xonotic...
[5:55] * _inc (~inc@unaffiliated/-inc/x-0498339) Quit (Quit: Computer has gone to sleep.)
[5:56] <djerome> probably there will be a software rendering opengl library for the pi, or it should be too hard to get it running, but don't expect to use hardware acceleration
[5:56] <djerome> shouldn't be too hard ...
[5:56] <emusan> it supports OGLES though right?
[5:57] <djerome> emusan, i dun know.
[5:57] <emusan> yer it does...
[5:57] <emusan> so as long as your application/game supports that it should run decently...
[5:57] <emusan> within reason lol
[5:58] <djerome> hey sightlight, use google with somethign like "raspberry pi opengl"
[6:01] <sightlight> I would like to lay the next microsoft flight simulator Direct X12 on the raspberry i
[6:02] <emusan> you're joking now right?
[6:02] <sightlight> ye
[6:02] <emusan> thanks
[6:02] <sightlight> aha
[6:02] <djerome> actually, it looks like the ogles is direct rendering. probably the code isn't open cause i think the broadcom keeps the gpu spec proprietary

[6:07] <sightlight> i dont know
[6:07] <mrdragons> vim
[6:07] <emusan> you mean a graphical programming language?
[6:07] <mrdragons> :P
[6:07] <sightlight> theyea
[6:07] <emusan> <3 me some vim
[6:07] <mrdragons> Never a fan, I just use nano
[6:07] <sightlight> yeayea
[6:07] <emusan> sightlight: I don't think you want vim lol
[6:08] <emusan> look up scratch
[6:08] <sightlight> what?
[6:08] <sightlight> dang it
[6:08] <emusan> but just learn a real progaramming language

[6:09] <mrdragons> Yeah, heh
[6:09] <mrdragons> @emusan

[6:09] <emusan> or any at all
[6:09] <sightlight> VIM?
[6:09] <sightlight> whats that?
[6:09] <emusan> Vi Improved
[6:09] <emusan> it's a super-editor

[6:18] <djerome> is anyone familiar with the fat file system layout that the pi boots?
[6:18] * kulve (e51830180e@humboldt.pingu.fi) has joined #raspberrypi
[6:18] <mrdragons> Yeah, it's a very common and ancient filesystem
[6:18] <mrdragons> Oh, you mean how the SD card would be partitioned?
[6:18] <djerome> i mean the files that are need by the pi to boot
[6:19] <djerome> that are in the fat file system
[6:19] <djerome> i have a sample and it is more complex that i expected
[6:19] <mrdragons> I'm not quite sure actually
[6:19] <djerome> err, ... than i expected
[6:20] <emusan> have a sample rpi?
[6:20] <mrdragons> I believe first is a fat partition for the binary blob for the gpu and the kernel, then filesystem .img
[6:20] <mrdragons> in another partition
[6:21] <mrdragons> Not .img, ignore that part
[6:21] <djerome> no, i have a sample sd image and the fat file system is more complex than i expected
[6:22] <emusan> ah
[6:22] <mrdragons> Not quite sure what you mean
[6:22] <mrdragons> where'd you get this image?
[6:23] * atts (~asheehan@146-115-165-244.c3-0.wth-ubr1.sbo-wth.ma.cable.rcn.com) has joined #raspberrypi

[6:24] <ctyler> djerome: ignore the FAT partition for the most part, and put your rootfs in the 2nd partition
[6:24] <mrdragons> No way? That's awesome.
[6:25] <djerome> yeah, well i need to built that fat partition from scratch for ttylinux
[6:25] <ctyler> djerome: you can't build it from scratch, there's no source released
[6:26] <djerome> i need to use the proprietary binaries as is
[6:26] <ctyler> basically the first partition is for the GPU + kernel.img
[6:26] <djerome> but i need to build the kernel and assemble the fat
[6:26] <djerome> file system
[6:27] <ctyler> ah, just build your kernel and drop it on top of kernel.img
[6:27] <ctyler> no other assembly required
[6:27] <djerome> it looks a little more complex. like why are the kernel modules in the fat?
[6:27] <rm> djerome, what exactly seems to be complex about the layout
[6:27] <rm> mkfs.vfat -F 16 (or 32)
[6:27] <djerome> and what is the vlls directory structure in the fat
[6:28] <rm> then copy files in the same directory structure as what you have
[6:28] <ctyler> djerome: the kernel modules are there only for convenience (you can copy or symlink them from the 2nd partition)
[6:28] <ctyler> djerome: the vlls directory is all GPU code
[6:28] <rm> modules only have to be in vfat if they are required to mount the 2nd partition (e.g. it has no initrd, and someone built ext4 as a module) afaik
[6:28] <djerome> i can't see why the kernel modules are there
[6:28] <sightlight> I have this crapy divers
[6:28] <sightlight> when the Pi comes otu
[6:28] <sightlight> and plays
[6:29] <rm> djerome, there isn't an initrd in FAT, right
[6:29] <sightlight> its goin g to be a rileves
[6:29] <ctyler> djerome: they don't need to be there, you can move them to the 2nd partition
[6:29] <djerome> nope, no initrd in the fat file system, but i dun think it is mounted by the kernel
[6:29] <ctyler> rm: those modules can't be loaded by the kernel before partition 2 is accessed.
[6:29] <sightlight> does linux as a linux compiler
[6:29] <sightlight> ?
[6:29] * kulve (e51830180e@humboldt.pingu.fi) has left #raspberrypi
[6:30] <ctyler> sightlight: ?
[6:30] <sightlight> does linux has a C compiler(sorry)
[6:30] <djerome> sightlight, yes
[6:30] <ctyler> yes, gcc
[6:30] <mrdragons> Yep, a couple actually
[6:30] <sightlight> included?
[6:30] <mrdragons> Usually just gcc
[6:30] <sightlight> how do i test build?
[6:31] <emusan> test build what?
[6:31] <sightlight> test build to see that it has gcc
[6:31] <ctyler> sightlight: "included" in most distros, but whether it's installed or not depends on which parts of the distro are installed. Most distros use some sort of packaging system and let you install/remove packages.
[6:31] <emusan> just type gcc -v
[6:31] <emusan> in a terminal
[6:32] <sightlight> gccjoshua@joshua-AO751h:~$ gcc -c gcc: no input files joshua@joshua-AO751h:~$ gcc -v Using built-in specs.

[6:32] <mrdragons> lol
[6:32] <emusan> thanks for that
[6:32] <emusan> very helpful...
[6:32] <sightlight> now,
[6:32] <sightlight> hoe do I compile C code?
[6:32] <emusan> gcc [file]
[6:32] <mrdragons> gcc -o outputfile outputfile.c
[6:32] <djerome> does anyone know if this boot loader can load an initrd and give its address to the kernel ?
[6:33] <ctyler> djerome: not the default one.
[6:33] <sightlight> is there a gui for gcc?
[6:33] <mrdragons> lolno
[6:33] <emusan> nop
[6:33] <emusan> it's not that hard...
[6:33] <djerome> ctyler, is there some other boot loader for the pi?
[6:33] <sightlight> why doesnt people do them
[6:33] <sightlight> its easy no?
[6:33] <emusan> because no one needs them...
[6:33] <emusan> I mean you could use a full IDE
[6:33] <rm> djerome, the firmware boot loader can load GRUB afaik
[6:33] <ctyler> sightlight: there's no need. However, most IDEs can run gcc.
[6:34] <rm> instead of just the kernel directly
[6:34] <emusan> but if all you're using an IDE for is as a gui for gcc that's a huge waste lol
[6:34] <djerome> sightlight, you can get eclipse and it provides an IDE that uses gcc ang the debugger gdb
[6:34] <sightlight> eclipce visual?
[6:34] * ctyler notes that Eclipse on raspi is problematic though
[6:34] <emusan> or just lrn2not need graphics
[6:35] <mrdragons> Hmm, eclipse can do C? I thought it was just java
[6:35] <mrdragons> Cool
[6:35] <ctyler> Eclipse does a boatload of languages
[6:35] <emusan> yer
[6:36] <rm> djerome, http://elinux.org/Rpi_Software#BootRom
[6:36] <emusan> sightlight: it will be very helpful for you in the future to just sit down and learn how to use the command line, trust me
[6:36] <mrdragons> Try pressing ctrl+alt+f1
[6:36] <emusan> don't doo itttt
[6:36] <emusan> lol
[6:36] <emusan> that's not kind

[7:30] <rm> so
[7:31] <rm> Raspberry Pi doesn't have an RTC
[7:31] <MartijnVdS> does it need one?
[7:31] <rm> I wonder does that mean it just doesn't keep time over power-off
[7:31] <MartijnVdS> I think it means that
[7:31] <rm> or that it can't keep time at all
[7:31] <MartijnVdS> it must have some kind of timing device or audio would be Hard??
[7:32] <rm> MartijnVdS, for one, there goes (many people's) idea of a custom alarm clock
[7:32] <MartijnVdS> rm: not as long as they keep it powered. Or have it ntp-sync on boot
[7:32] <rm> well, if it counts time ok while powered on
[7:32] <rm> yeah
[7:34] <piofcube> it could cause problems for some software. The time would be reset back to the default until the ntp daemon was run
[7:35] <MartijnVdS> Most mobile phones do this too
[7:35] <MartijnVdS> Take off battery -> need to reset time on startup
[7:36] <piofcube> True but the sofware on a phone knows that this would be a possibility... The typical app designed for the desktop isn't usually
[7:37] <MartijnVdS> piofcube: most apps on the desktop aren't started before the init sequence is done
[7:37] <MartijnVdS> make ntpdate part of the init sequence. done!
[7:37] <piofcube> I mean desktop PC... not GUI based application :-)
[7:37] <MartijnVdS> Most software I've seen copes fine
[7:37] <MartijnVdS> cron might skip a minute
[7:37] <MartijnVdS> a screensaver might be confused
[7:38] <piofcube> True most will be fine... Just some
[7:38] <MartijnVdS> but that's it really
[7:39] <piofcube> Some logs might be confusing LOL
[7:40] <piofcube> some cron jobs might fire twice within a short period instead of once but that shouldn't be a big problem
[7:40] <MartijnVdS> depends on the default state of the clock
[7:40] <MartijnVdS> if it's 01-01-2010 it's not as bad as 01-01-1980 ;)
[7:41] <piofcube> probs would be best to store the date/time in a text file every so often then as high up on the script list to set the time to that before the ntp daemon fires
[7:42] <piofcube> might be a good idea more so for model a
[7:43] <MartijnVdS> yeah those don't have network do they
[7:44] <piofcube> I will be adding a RTC to mine and as part of my initial tutorial videos

[13:11] <Davespice> Rattus, it would depend on the current output
[13:11] <Dagger3> # Li-ion rechargeable battery capacity: 1600mAh
[13:11] <Dagger3> # Solar cells: 200mA premium quality crystalline
[13:12] <Davespice> I'm not sure if that is it... you need to know the output to the device being charged
[13:12] <Dagger3> so, assuming it can power a micro-usb port: yes, but not continuously
[13:12] <Davespice> if that is 5v and 700 ma or higher it should work
[13:14] <RaTTuS|BIG> ok... looking for others .,.,,.
[13:14] <Davespice> it says it'll charge a blackberry, and blackberry chargers are exactly 5V 700ma... <shrug>
[13:15] * EiNSTeiN_ (~einstein@unaffiliated/einstein/x-615171) has joined #raspberrypi
[13:16] <Dagger3> it'll do 700 mA, but obviously only for ~2.3-3.2 hours

[13:16] <Davespice> and as long as the sun is shining =)
[13:16] <Dagger3> (700 mA is probably not the right figure to use, but I don't think we've had any idle power consumption numbers yet)
[13:17] <MartijnVdS> Car battery? :)
[13:17] <Davespice> as far as I know that is what the Pi requires for it to provide power to downstream usb devices
[13:18] <MartijnVdS> I've seen 3-4W figures for the beta board
[13:21] <RaTTuS|BIG> I'll wait until I have got one [or 2] and then see if I can find something to run it ....
[13:23] <MartijnVdS> RaTTuS|BIG: 2 or 3 of these should be enough: http://www.dealextreme.com/p/solar-power-panel-110-95mm-6v-200ma-18168

[18:45] <victhor> resolution is pretty bad too
[18:45] <LiENUS> hamitron, you can play xkillbill on a ps1?
[18:46] <hamitron> ok, maybe the odd positive
[18:46] <hamitron> :)
[18:46] <dnova_> you could probably fit 6 r.pis in a ps1

[18:48] <LiENUS> victhor, oh snap you're right i thought it came with it built in
[18:48] <LiENUS> nm then
[18:48] <victhor> and yes the monitor is cheap and easy to come by. It also has built-in speakers. But the highest quality connection in those is component video and the resolution isn't very good either
[18:49] <dnova_> and they're not $10

[18:56] <Jimf82> myself
[18:57] <LiENUS> will raspi support suspend? i know theres no power button
[18:57] <LiENUS> i really wish i had the time/money to build a raspi laptop

[18:57] <hamitron> I turn power saving off on my comp, to create more heat ;)
[18:58] <Jimf82> i think the nokia screens will be popular for the raspberripi
[18:58] <dmsuse> why would you need power saving anyway, it only uses 2watts
[18:58] <LiENUS> oh snap i am due for an upgrade

[18:59] <LiENUS> does hdmi have a command channel to turn on and off the monitor?

[19:00] <Jimf82> i started some assembly on the 6502, i like to do bits at really low level
[19:01] <ahven> ShiftPlusOne: which one of those strange ones? :)
[19:01] <LiENUS> i did assembly on a 45mhz arm sound controller waay back
[19:01] <LiENUS> over a decade ago
[19:01] <LiENUS> hated it
[19:01] <ShiftPlusOne> ahven, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2adV6PkgFNA wtf?
[19:01] <hamitron> assembly is "fun"
[19:01] <hamitron> ;)
[19:01] <LiENUS> though i didnt mind doing the assembly on the sh4
[19:01] <Jimf82> i even spent the time to learn hexadecimal and binary lol
[19:01] <LiENUS> its like the bisual vasic of assembly
[19:01] <ahven> ShiftPlusOne: ah, that's called humor btw :P
[19:02] <ahven> lot of Estonian men have gone to Finland to work as builders
[19:02] <LiENUS> Jimf82, isnt that more or less a requirement to program on anything?
[19:02] * robde_ (~robde@pC19F7491.dip.t-dialin.net) Quit (Ping timeout: 276 seconds)
[19:02] <Jimf82> i never needed binary for java, not really anyway
[19:02] <ahven> ah yes, they had an intro for that :P
[19:02] <dmsuse> LiENUS: no idea
[19:02] <LiENUS> Jimf82, you should know it
[19:02] <rm> dmsuse, I think only suspend-to-disk makes sense
[19:02] <hamitron> java isn't proper though ;)
[19:02] <rm> in this case
[19:02] <LiENUS> dmsuse, i've seen you around are you a raspi project member or do i just see you talk a lot?
[19:03] <dmsuse> rm: yeah
[19:03] <Jimf82> windows calculator converts well enough lol
[19:03] <dmsuse> LiENUS: i just have no life :)
[19:03] <rm> and how that works, is after a suspend the power turns off completely; then the next boot the linux kernel can detect that there's a suspend image stored (typically in the swap partition)
[19:03] <LiENUS> Jimf82, being able to do binary math is impotent
[19:03] <Jimf82> i never used it in modern langauges
[19:03] <rm> and instead of a regular boot up it basically refills RAM from that image; the tricky part is to reinit all devices to a consistent state
[19:03] <ShiftPlusOne> ahven, yeah, I've figured out that much.
[19:04] <LiENUS> Jimf82, then you arent programming
[19:04] <rm> so that e.g. video or sound aren't borked after a restore
[19:04] <LiENUS> rm, isnt that the same as hibernate?
[19:04] <rm> yes
[19:04] <Jimf82> maybe not :)
[19:04] <rm> afaik that in the modern linux kernel requires no special h/w support whatsoever
[19:04] <dmsuse> suspending to hard disk makes sense, but i don't see how it can suspend to ram
[19:04] <rm> (other than what's in the modules to properly resume their devices)
[19:05] <ShiftPlusOne> LiENUS, why is being able to do binary maths important? Other than understanding bitwise operations, why does a programmer need to be able to do binary maths without a calculator?
[19:05] <LiENUS> ShiftPlusOne, you need to understand how to do binary maths
[19:05] <LiENUS> or else bitwise operations wont make much sense
[19:06] <ShiftPlusOne> LiENUS, sure, I can agree with that
[19:06] <Jimf82> sorry shift didnt mean to click that
[19:06] <LiENUS> then theres debugging
[19:06] <Jimf82> I dont personally think learning binary and hex would be top of my list in learning programming
[19:06] <ShiftPlusOne> Jimf82, happens
[19:06] <LiENUS> binary and hex math isnt necescary for debugging but it can make things a hell of a lot easier
[19:06] <ShiftPlusOne> Jimf82, there's not really much to learn.. it's the same thing as decimal, but with less numbers.
[19:06] <Jimf82> yes for sure, i understand some stuff alot better now
[19:07] <LiENUS> ShiftPlusOne, its like chaos theory
[19:07] <ShiftPlusOne> or more, if hex obviously.
[19:07] <LiENUS> you can do everything you need to do in the decimal system
[19:07] <rm> I wonder if one of the RPi education manual will include ARM assembler :))
[19:07] <LiENUS> but they consider it mandetory at the colleges here to learn terniary math
[19:07] <rm> manuals*
[19:07] <LiENUS> in the chaos theory class
[19:08] <hamitron> rm, assembly will be my main use for the pi
[19:08] <hamitron> :)
[19:08] <LiENUS> i hope someone (maybe me) comes up with a runtime programming environment like the old basic ones
[19:08] <Jimf82> its only when i started looking at assembly code i really decided i needed to know hex and binary :)
[19:08] <LiENUS> but support basic, assembly, C, C++
[19:08] <LiENUS> so you can boot up type in the code then execute
[19:08] <Jimf82> sounds nice
[19:08] <hamitron> basic!?!?!/!!? :/
[19:08] <rm> LiENUS, Python interactive shell won't do?
[19:09] <LiENUS> rm, but quick boot without linux kernel
[19:09] <Jimf82> like on the old c64s etc?
[19:09] <LiENUS> using a custom editor and something like tinycc
[19:09] <LiENUS> really all youd need is a custom libc capable of compiling whatever editor and compiler you want
[19:09] <LiENUS> Jimf82, yeah
[19:09] * Shift_ (~Shift@124-170-26-220.dyn.iinet.net.au) has joined #raspberrypi
[19:09] <LiENUS> andh amandarn yeah basic
[19:10] <Shift_> grr, could really use a new modem.
[19:10] <rm> I would imagine it'd be a pain to edit large programs (more than one source file) in a type-and-run environment
[19:10] * piofcube (~piofcube@piofcube.1billionhex.com) Quit (Quit: Lost terminal)
[19:10] <LiENUS> rm, you wouldnt do large programs
[19:10] <LiENUS> and you could have it save the files
[19:11] <Jimf82> i think someone should release some kind of weekly magazine with some code in it, So you can type it in like i used to in the 80s :)
[19:11] <LiENUS> Jimf82, ed zachary
[19:11] <Shift_> hmm... maybe start a little community effort
[19:11] <rm> nope, forget typing in code
[19:11] <Shift_> have a weekly raspberry pi magazine
[19:11] <Jimf82> yeh with simple games to get people started
[19:11] <Shift_> and have forum members contribute projects
[19:12] <rm> it's a cargo cult to try emulate that; these days you spend 0.1 seconds downloading code and another 30 seconds putting it on an SD card
[19:12] <Jimf82> for me i always learnt faster when it was games as it was interesting
[19:12] * ShiftPlusOne (~Shift@124-148-149-116.dyn.iinet.net.au) Quit (Ping timeout: 255 seconds)
[19:12] <Shift_> yeah, games are the way to go.
[19:12] <rm> typing was necessary only because of no internet back then
[19:12] <Jimf82> but i think its ok to copy and paste sure, But its looking over it and seeing what things do and changing
[19:13] <Jimf82> of course people wont type 1000lines of code when you can copy it in.
[19:13] <Shift_> nor will you understand the 1000 lines without typing them (if you're just learning)
[19:14] <Jimf82> you can break down parts, better to type it in yourself
[19:14] <Jimf82> So apple are giving you money back for old hardware ??100 for an Ipad lol
[19:15] <hamitron> ideally you'd get "kids" typing it all in, so they learn..... but can kids today be bothered? ;)
[19:15] <Shift_> sure they can... if they have any interest in learning
[19:15] <Jimf82> yeh thats the problem
[19:15] <LiENUS> rm, good luck downloading the code on a model A
[19:16] <hamitron> I just feel they may feel a little disappointed with a game of 1000 lines they've spent ages typing.... when comparing to their instant on PS3 game
[19:16] * Helpme1986 (5ce8935f@gateway/web/freenode/ip. Quit (Quit: Page closed)
[19:16] <Jimf82> yeh its a problem as well hamiltron
[19:16] <LiENUS> hamitron, what about a game of 3000 lines that they made themselves?
[19:16] <hamitron> even worse
[19:16] <hamitron> haha
[19:16] <LiENUS> youd need a fancy library to make it easy
[19:17] <Simon-> "quick boot without linux kernel" <-- what makes you think linux is slow to boot?
[19:17] <LiENUS> something higher level to interact with than even directx
[19:17] <Jimf82> But making your own game is exciting
[19:17] <hamitron> but then you make it less flexible :/
[19:17] * RobinJ (robinj@unaffiliated/robinj) has joined #raspberrypi
[19:17] <LiENUS> maybe a dumbed down quake c
[19:17] <Jimf82> even if it isnt ps3 quality
[19:17] <LiENUS> Simon-, it leaves fewer resources available as well
[19:17] <Simon-> significantly out of 128-256MB?
[19:17] <LiENUS> 256mb use to be a ton
[19:18] <hamitron> I personally think it is a mistake trying to market it for games
[19:18] <LiENUS> nowadays my its nothing
[19:18] <LiENUS> linux has adapted we arent running 2.0.36 no mo
[19:18] <rm> does anyone know is there even a proper Xorg driver for the GPU
[19:18] <LiENUS> hamitron, whys that?
[19:18] <Simon-> linux can boot in about 200ms if you drop ACPI and load USB as a module
[19:18] <LiENUS> i wouldnt market it for games
[19:18] <rm> that beta guy posted videos and logs running it on fbdev
[19:18] <LiENUS> but making games available is a good idea
[19:19] <Jimf82> I still think making a pong style game start to finish would be nice for a child of today
[19:19] <hamitron> I'd target lower level stuff, with small "packs" of electronic parts to interact with
[19:19] <LiENUS> hamitron, you could call the packs "shields"
[19:19] <LiENUS> ...
[19:19] <Jimf82> that reminds me of when i was about 8 and we had a robot that we had to program in some codes to make it walk and stop
[19:20] <hamitron> pong is good, like a game programming 101
[19:20] <hamitron> :)
[19:20] <Jimf82> Computing at school all went down when we moved to x86 computers
[19:20] <hamitron> nothing wrong with x86
[19:20] <hamitron> :/
[19:20] <Jimf82> I know but it just seemed to go that way
[19:21] <LiENUS> computing in school went down when we moved to a windows style machine
[19:21] <Jimf82> yeh thats what i mean
[19:21] <LiENUS> where every machine had very specialized hardware yet was different from each other
[19:21] <hamitron> I'd say once we started to get to windows 98..... things started to "just work"
[19:21] <hamitron> :/
[19:21] <LiENUS> the gpu did more to kill computing in school than x86
[19:21] <Jimf82> wow windows98 we had windows 3.11
[19:21] <hamitron> Jimf82, so did we
[19:21] <hamitron> ;)
[19:22] <haltdef> we had xp
[19:22] <haltdef> you guys are old
[19:22] <MartijnVdS> We had DOS 2.1 8-)
[19:22] <Jimf82> but the teacher let us play Sim ant if it was near a holliday
[19:22] <hamitron> but I remember having to learn about IRQ to get stuff working on windows 95
[19:22] <hamitron> win98 sort of made a comp, ready built
[19:23] <Jimf82> We still had bbc micros at schools :)

[19:25] <hamitron> and I can maybe re-compile some of the things for my older x86 machines
[19:25] <hamitron> :)
[19:25] <noyouken> I gonna write a program, itll do things
[19:25] <Jimf82> I think the Pi has the chance to be a massive massive thing for computing
[19:26] <noyouken> things you cant imagine
[19:26] <hamitron> with newer machines having resources free for real stuff, rather than running a bloated OS
[19:26] <noyouken> just gotta wait for it to actually release
[19:26] <noyouken> which is now feburary
[19:26] <hamitron> wait?!?!?!?!
[19:26] <hamitron> :/
[19:26] <noyouken> and will actually be march
[19:27] <hamitron> I'm sort of expecting an Apriel Fool's joke, to say they are ready
[19:27] <Jimf82> I wanna learn some electronics myself too, Anyone know some good sets/books to read
[19:27] <hamitron> ;)
[19:27] <noyouken> I wouldnt be surprised if it gets pushed back to april
[19:28] <Jimf82> But they are in manufactoring already
[19:28] <hamitron> Jimf82, I'm told the arduino is a nice toy to start with
[19:28] <Jimf82> Yeh i seen that a bit, Thinking about just geting a breadboard and making some simple designs first
[19:28] <hamitron> but I'd personally encourage someone to start with more basic componants
[19:29] <hamitron> yes
[19:29] <Jimf82> I see some guy who had used a 6502 processor and made his own computer, on youtube really interested me
[19:29] <Jimf82> had like 4k of ram as well & he added a sid chip afterwards
[19:29] <LiENUS> i built my own processor out of relays
[19:29] <hamitron> relays :|
[19:30] <LiENUS> hey its a simple and gate
[19:30] <LiENUS> or a nand gate
[19:30] <hamitron> also slow and slower
[19:30] <Jimf82> will that be in the begineers handbook??? ;)

[19:38] <LiENUS> and red not yellow
[19:38] <LiENUS> oh hmm
[19:38] <LiENUS> it does have composite
[19:38] <RichiH> also, will there be a raspberry pi at fosdem?
[19:38] <Jimf82> yeh thats what i meant
[19:38] <LiENUS> Jimf82, btw you're mixing up composite and component
[19:38] <noyouken> it has hdmi and composite
[19:38] <Jimf82> yeh i see, i always do that :)
[19:39] <LiENUS> i did nto know it had composite

[19:40] <Jimf82> So how slow would using a usb stick as a hard drive be? compaired to SD cards
[19:41] <LiENUS> slow
[19:41] <LiENUS> but so would sd cards
[19:41] <LiENUS> the big problem with the raspi
[19:41] * DoctorD (~DoctorD@ has joined #raspberrypi
[19:41] <LiENUS> is its only io port really is usb
[19:41] <LiENUS> so if you do a usb hd
[19:41] <Jimf82> So what are you going to do for storage? SD?
[19:41] <LiENUS> and do ethernet.... you split bandwidth between the two
[19:41] <noyouken> Could use a higher class SD card
[19:41] <LiENUS> most of my storage would probably be networked
[19:41] <traeak> you won't get good speeds out of SD cards no matter what
[19:41] <traeak> and i'm not sure the rpi even supports high speed sd cards anyways
[19:42] <traeak> somethign baout license fees for certain levels of sd card support
[19:42] <Jimf82> I just got 1 SD card that swaps between my camera and nintendo wii
[19:42] <noyouken> heh iw qas in the same bout just bought a new sd card so i could leave the one in the wii alone
[19:42] <noyouken> sense its softmodded and needs it really
[19:43] <Jimf82> yeh ^^
[19:43] <traeak> heh
[19:43] <traeak> yeah, i just use my wii to play videos

[19:44] <traeak> if i can get a balance board super cheap ... maybe
[19:44] <traeak> heh
[19:44] <Jimf82> PS3 just gets used for bluray play back as well
[19:44] <traeak> although my 17 month old son steals everything and runs off with it
[19:44] <traeak> that's the biggest problem
[19:47] <LiENUS> traeak, i hope to god thats bs
[19:48] <LiENUS> i dont think you're trying to but i hope you're mistaken
[19:48] <LiENUS> .... nice i just got 300ft of heatshrink tubing in at work
[19:48] <LiENUS> 15mm 20mm and 30mm
[19:49] <traeak> LiENUS: you mean about my son grabbing the wiimotes, the ir bar, the discs and spreading them all over the house ?
[19:49] <LiENUS> no
[19:49] <LiENUS> the part about licensing for sd cards
[19:49] <traeak> oh
[19:49] <LiENUS> licensing speeds
[19:49] <LiENUS> if i buy a class 6 sd card
[19:50] <traeak> could have just been an evil rumour
[19:50] <LiENUS> in theory i've paid the class 6 license
[19:50] <LiENUS> then i go buy a device
[19:50] <LiENUS> but they only paid class 4 license
[19:50] <LiENUS> thats bs
[19:50] <LiENUS> i wouldnt be surprised if its a true rumor but i hope not

[19:53] <noyouken> figure I wont need the tablet with the size of the vitas screen

[19:54] <Jimf82> any ideas what it could be, i tried messing about with drives but nothing will fix it
[19:55] <noyouken> nah sorry
[19:55] <noyouken> how old is the phone
[19:55] <Jimf82> just over a year, it works fine other than conecting to windows
[19:56] <chris_99> yup traeak
[19:56] <noyouken> and are you sure you have usb transfer turned on
[19:56] <Jimf82> yeh it pops up unreconized device in windows
[19:56] <traeak> hmm....almost should just ship them direct from china and have them manage the inventory
[19:56] <noyouken> what make and model phone
[19:56] <Jimf82> nexus s
[19:56] <chris_99> they want to test some of the boards apparently traeak

[19:57] <chris_99> yeah
[19:57] <LiENUS> dang monoprices smallest tubing wont shrink small enough for this use :/
[19:57] <rm> and it's probably not that expensive to ship the whole bulk of 10K in a big box to the UK
[19:57] <rm> it's not like they have to ship each board separately
[19:57] <noyouken> try googling for a nexus s usb driver, My old Lg Optimus required a driver download
[19:58] <Jimf82> i tried all the usb drives for it, had a load with the android sdk nothing sorts it
[19:58] <Jimf82> its not a massive loss as i can just email my pictures accross etc but its anoying
[19:58] <noyouken> yea that sucks, '
[19:58] <noyouken> its not under warranty?
[19:59] <Jimf82> dont think so now.
[19:59] <LiENUS> Jimf82, what you trying to accomplish?
[19:59] <noyouken> guess your stuck using a seperate sd card reader
[19:59] <LiENUS> Jimf82, you dont have usb debugging enabled do you?
[19:59] <Jimf82> my phone no longer connects to my pc for transfer
[19:59] <Jimf82> think so
[20:00] <noyouken> even with debugging enabled pretty sure itll still connect as a usb storage device
[20:00] <Jimf82> it just comes up usb device not reconized, Never used to happen seemed to start happening when i droped my phone
[20:01] <tntexplosivesltd> that happens with my optimus after I flashed a new ROM onto it.
[20:01] <noyouken> try installing pdanet? it comes with android usb drivers
[20:01] <tntexplosivesltd> I just use linux XD
[20:01] <Jimf82> Im waiting for ICS and hoping that it will forget this problem :)
[20:02] <LiENUS> Jimf82, try disabling usb debugging
[20:02] <LiENUS> also have you tried #android?
[20:02] <noyouken> i just sold both my android devices :/ it was for the best, my phone was prepaid and i dont have the money to keep it active and I rarely used the tablet so i sold it and am turning the money into profits for my next tech purchase
[20:02] <Jimf82> nope i will do, just that problem just popped into my head
[20:03] <haltdef> my phone provider hasn't been paid on months
[20:04] <haltdef> still got ??8 credit

[20:57] <syk3> currently im connected through both, if i disable the wired connection i can browse like three webpages

[20:57] <tntexplosivesltd> try entering that into the browser

[21:00] <Dagger3> VM are having network issues... although I suppose the network issues might be hitting their DNS servers too

[21:06] <mdavey> who's running a countdown timer for r.pi going on sale?
[21:06] <syk3> the only other option that mentions dns is dynamic DNS which assumes I signed up for a DDNS service
[21:07] <Dagger3> syk3: you can try and narrow down the problem with nslookup (for DNS) and ping (with an IP) when it breaks... if both of those work but you still can't connect to anywhere, then your problem isn't basic network or DNS
[21:07] <Dagger3> I suppose you could also try telnet to connect to a web server, to see if it's just your web browser having trouble (although testing in IE would probably work as an alternative)
[21:08] <Dagger3> if nslookup says "Server:" or similar, then your router's DNS settings are irrelevent
[21:09] <syk3> nslookup gives my ISPs DNS
[21:09] <Dagger3> (and if it says "Server: 192.168.x.x" (whatever the local IP of your router is), then you're using the router's DNS forwarder)
[21:12] <syk3> i tried nslookup again and it actually timed out

[22:30] <ShiftPlusOne> yeah, I found it strange that cyrillic is an option... I've only seen Serbian written in latin
[22:30] <Kostic> When I went to school, first year we were learning cyrillic and the second we were learning latin
[22:31] <Kostic> Because latin is more popular tha cyrillic
[22:31] <rm> are they used for different purposes?
[22:31] <Kostic> its a globalization thing
[22:31] <rm> or just mixed in whatever way
[22:31] <Kostic> depends
[22:31] <Kostic> as an example, national television uses only cyrillic and other comercial tv stations use latin
