[0:00] <piless> Hopsy: Your paging file should be at least one and a half times the size of your ram
[0:00] <piless> Or is it two times. I forget
[0:00] <Hopsy> I have 16gb of ram
[0:00] <namfonos> piless 1/2 ram size
[0:00] <Hexxeh> that used to be the case
[0:00] <Hexxeh> probably not so much these days
[0:01] <Henchman21> piless: windows uses a page file linux uses swap :P
[0:01] <Hexxeh> pretty sure having 96GB of swap would be silly
[0:01] <grimboy> Linux can use a swapfile.
[0:01] <piless> Henchman21: No shit sherlock, we just had this discussion
[0:01] <Dagger2> piless: that's not a useful guideline. your swap file should be (total_virtual_memory_you_need - amount_of_RAM_you_have)
[0:01] <Henchman21> aka take your paging crap to #winsuck
[0:02] <Dagger2> with the caveat that if your swapfile gets much larger than your RAM size, you'll probably find things crawling to a halt before you ever get to use all of the swapfile
[0:02] <wcchandler> w00t shipping info from Newark -- order placed Feb29th like 8 hours after the launch
[0:02] <piless> Henchman21: go fuck off to #neckbeards
[0:02] <Iota> \o/
[0:03] <Henchman21> winlover
[0:03] <mkopack> wcchandler: You suck! I ordered at 10am and haven't seen anything yet
[0:03] <piless> racist
[0:03] <mkopack> Maybe I'll get something soon
[0:03] <Henchman21> OS'ist and yes i am
[0:03] <wcchandler> mkopack: sorry bro, yeah hopefully!
[0:03] <wcchandler> ; not ,
[0:03] <piless> mkopack: I hacked into element14 and cancelled your order for you

[0:35] <passstab> besides you know, Bayes rule
[0:35] <Hopsy> http://rulesoftheinternet.com/index.php?title=Main_Page
[0:35] <passstab> ok ok
[0:35] <passstab> i never said i'm a girl
[0:36] <piless> passstab: But you've got to be holding a piece of paper
[0:36] <Hopsy> 17. Every win fails eventually.
[0:36] <piless> saying <3 Hopsy
[0:36] <Hopsy> so piless
[0:36] <Hopsy> you lost
[0:36] <a5m0> this is why we can't have nice things guys
[0:36] <a5m0> ie. girls on the internet
[0:36] <piless> a5m0: all I wanted to do was stick 64bit ubuntu on my pie
[0:36] <a5m0> -_-
[0:36] <a5m0> wrong arch
[0:36] <a5m0> arch=arm
[0:37] <grimboy> ...

[0:38] <grimboy> aWell, that's the important bit.
[0:38] <namfonos> ya and something about balls touching
[0:39] <piless> namfonos: That's important too
[0:40] <grimboy> That rule can help you avoid a lot of situations which would otherwise be totally awkward.
[0:41] <Hopsy> loool a5m0
[0:41] <Hopsy> XD
[0:41] <a5m0> hur
[0:42] <passstab> i'm glad they switched the debian password
[0:42] <a5m0> who uses passwords?
[0:42] <a5m0> and who runs debian?
[0:42] <passstab> to something that makes even the slightest sense
[0:42] <a5m0> it's all about alarm
[0:42] <passstab> http://www.raspberrypi.org/downloads
[0:42] <passstab> Default login Username: pi Password: raspberry Note changed password!
[0:43] <passstab> used to be suse , suse
[0:43] <a5m0> what's your ip? and can you forward a port too?
[0:43] <passstab> for reasons that are unclear
[0:43] <passstab> I run debian

[0:44] <passstab> http://www.raspberrypi.org/archives/1058
[0:45] <passstab> new p0st !!$!!

[0:47] <passstab> alarm?
[0:47] <a5m0> Arch Linux ARM
[0:48] <a5m0> the default hostname is also alarm
[0:48] <a5m0> for that reason
[0:48] <passstab> ahh
[0:49] * chris_99 (~chris_99@unaffiliated/chris-99/x-3062929) Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[0:50] <passstab> i suspect that installing debian and adding testing repos would give me more updates
[0:50] * sraue (~stephan@xbmc/staff/sraue) Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[0:50] <a5m0> if you like updates
[0:50] <a5m0> alarm my friend
[0:50] <a5m0> it's rolling release
[0:50] <a5m0> and all in one command, update and install pacman -Syu
[0:50] <passstab> we'll cont this later
[0:51] <passstab> dinar time
[0:51] <grimboy> In my experience when I've tried to run off debian testing I got a lot more breakage than running Arch.
[0:51] <a5m0> i prefer dollars
[0:52] * sraue (~stephan@xbmc/staff/sraue) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:52] * PiBot sets mode +v sraue
[0:52] <a5m0> well i didn't say that rolling release was inferior grimboy, i was just saying it sates my appetite for updates
[0:52] * IT_Sean (~IT_Sean@applefritter/IRCStaff/UltimateMacUser1) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:52] * PiBot sets mode +v IT_Sean
[0:52] <a5m0> i've never broken anything in arch
[0:52] <a5m0> debian testing is not for me though, i run squeeze
[0:52] <a5m0> i just wish it had a longer support cycle
[0:52] <IT_Sean> Raspi mentioned on Engadget http://www.engadget.com/2012/04/16/raspberry-pi-begins-shipping/
[0:52] <a5m0> like ubuntu lts
[0:52] <a5m0> zomg, i'm sure they've been mentioned on engadget many times by now
[0:53] * jthunder (~jthunder@ has joined #raspberrypi
[0:53] * PiBot sets mode +v jthunder
[0:53] <IT_Sean> well pardon me for pointing out a NEW post, a5m0. :/
[0:53] <a5m0> what's funny is that arm based boards are everywhere and the rpi is actually one of the slower ones
[0:53] * IT_Sean facepalms
[0:53] <grimboy> But it's cheap.
[0:53] <grimboy> People like cheap.
[0:53] <a5m0> follow me to #archlinux-arm where all the arm elitists are
[0:53] <IT_Sean> It's not mEANT to be fast. it's meant to be CHEAP
[0:53] <a5m0> grimboy, there are cheaper options, this is just a well publicized one
[0:54] <grimboy> Go on then...
[0:54] <a5m0> i'm already there
[0:55] * piless (piless@ Quit (Ping timeout: 265 seconds)

[1:16] <wcchandler> are they pushing binary blobs to the upstream kenrel for the SoC? if so then it wouldn't matter which distro you use... but from the way I read it, they're only "bundling" acc. drivers with the official release

[1:17] <wcchandler> i love just randomly showing up and talking about something equally random as if it's relevant
[1:19] <grimboy> Hmm, well if they've pushed the framebuffer driver upstream then presumably that's enough to install another distro then replace the kernel, right?
[1:19] <passstab> yea
[1:20] <passstab> what is this relevant you speak of?

[1:21] <passstab> fail
[1:21] <wcchandler> but any compile-your-own distro like arch, gentoo, etc would rely on the upstream

[5:56] <RITRedbeard> so can I order a pi?
[5:56] <RITRedbeard> or are they out of stock?
[5:56] <SimonT> If you're placing an order now, then you're going to be waiting a while either way
[5:56] <RITRedbeard> fuck 'em
[5:56] <des2> rick2k has to do with corrupting file system
[5:56] <SimonT> whichever distributor you choose
[5:57] <nezZario> SimonT: define 'a while'
[5:57] <des2> Never shut down computers when they might be writing out to disk
[5:57] <rick2k> des2: hmm i thought it might... i have been just cutting the power so far.. :/
[5:57] <SimonT> nezZario: not a clue.. but there's a pretty big backlog if i'm not mistaken maybe a month or two?
[5:57] <rick2k> now i do get some weird error 101 messages on bootup but it still boots anyway..
[5:58] <SimonT> could be more or less
[5:58] <rick2k> error 110*
[5:58] <SimonT> des2: After executing $shutdown with power still on, what state will the Pi be in?
[5:58] <des2> Modern linuxes note if they've been shutdown correctly and if not should do filesystem checking on reboots
[5:59] <nezZario> the element people say 141 days...
[5:59] <SimonT> then you have your answer
[5:59] <des2> Not sure Simon. On systems I use they power off on shutdown.
[5:59] <SimonT> Same here, but I gather the Pi is a bit different..
[6:00] <rick2k> It says halted or something along those lines and hangs there
[6:00] <nezZario> sigh...
[6:00] <des2> I guess it just halts with power on.
[6:00] <des2> Then you can unplug it.

[11:29] <piless_> M0RBD: You're comparing powerpc to arm
[11:29] <M0RBD> piless_: it's medias fault.. or rather the general incompetence of the people doing tech reviews..
[11:29] <piless_> M0RBD: No it's the foundations fault.
[11:30] <M0RBD> piless_: they fueled the media!
[11:30] <piless_> M0RBD: They've been hiding the flaws.. Why have we not seen any videos demonstrating the crippling input lag from them?
[11:30] <M0RBD> piless_: Oh.. there was someone deming a pi at the guardian..
[11:30] <BenO> Because they mostly have day-jobs?
[11:31] <M0RBD> I noticed the lag in the demo when he was dragging a console window...
[11:31] <piless_> BenO: Eben works for qualcomm. The whole thing is just an effort to offloat some outdated SoCs
[11:31] <piless_> *offload
[11:31] <BenO> That comment actually made me lol

[11:36] <M0RBD> Are there any angry reviews of the PI?!
[11:37] <philh> anyone who's bought one and kept it is probably too busy fiddling with linux to write a review, the rest have just stuck them on ebay
[11:37] <cjbaird> Those 1080p video and Quake3 demos gave a lot of people unrealistic expectations. "hurr stuff the educational intent i gets my super-cheap htpc!!!"
[11:37] <philh> indeed
[11:38] * triscuits is now known as triscuit
[11:39] <BenO> cjbaird, Yes, that was unfortunate as Quake3 is a crowd-pleaser and lead the talk away from it being a good bit of hardware to learn from to a cheap htpc
[11:39] <M0RBD> hehe
[11:39] <[deXter]> I admit that's what got me interested in RPi. :P
[11:40] <[deXter]> Any device that can run Quake3 is awesome in my books. ;)
[11:40] <BenO> I learnt tons from my zaurus, gp2x and other embedded devices but still feel the pain when I look at the receipts ;)
[11:40] <fALSO> the problem with pi
[11:40] <fALSO> are the blobs
[11:40] * Hourd wants a gp2x, my flatmate had one last year and it was fun
[11:40] <M0RBD> fALSO: I guess that's true for most SOC's
[11:41] <BenO> [deXter], it runs it okay, but I'd say that until it is optimised, it's a little too laggy to play well. Pretty though :)
[11:41] <fALSO> imagine...
[11:41] <fALSO> the linux kernel is constantly chaging API's
[11:41] <Meatballs> quake2 was better anyway
[11:41] <M0RBD> Imagine there's no Windows... It's easy if you try...
[11:41] <fALSO> you think broadcom will start to "alter" the blob every time the linux kernel changes apis ?
[11:41] <fALSO> keep on dreaming
[11:41] <BenO> fALSO, I agree, and I want to see what the blob support from broadcom is after the initial few months
[11:42] <fALSO> lets wait and see
[11:42] <piless_> fALSO: I don't expect we'll get any blob updates from broadcom
[11:42] <[deXter]> Meatballs, Blasphemy!
[11:42] <fALSO> from the looks... even the bootloader is a blob
[11:42] <fALSO> so no *bsd
[11:42] <philh> quake2 better?
[11:43] <Meatballs> better bunnyhopping and double jumping quirks etc
[11:43] <cjbaird> The problem with their choice of demos is they weren't "Amiga Bouncing Ball"-- a proper demo should hint at what's possible to do, not look like an end in itself...
[11:43] <fALSO> this was a huge marketing hype
[11:43] <fALSO> i cant understand why this will make the kids learn to program
[11:43] <fALSO> but a full computer wont
[11:43] <fALSO> LOL
[11:43] <fALSO> that doesnt make any kind of sense
[11:43] <BenO> cjbaird, to be fair, they were running others but certain demos were the ones that got reported on
[11:44] <philh> fALSO, the full computer has too many distractions, the pi will turn out to be largely useless for all the fun stuff they could be doing instead
[11:44] <Hourd> fALSO: a full computer will too, but this is super cheap
[11:44] <fALSO> and super slow
[11:44] <fALSO> and super useless for anything
[11:44] <BenO> cjbaird, at the gadget show, I was alternating between running spectrum emu, Atari 2600 emu (Stella works from repos) and Quake3. Guess which one got tweeted about :)
[11:44] <Hourd> you dont need massive performance to program
[11:44] <[deXter]> Well it's not like they'll be compiling an entire distro on the PI. :P
[11:45] <fALSO> lets learn how to program...
[11:45] <fALSO> lets put the children using VI
[11:45] <fALSO> because any Desktop will be too slow
[11:45] <Hourd> the desktop runs fine...

[11:47] <cjbaird> The 'RPi will make a super-cheap Emulator box!' people were nearly as worse as the wannabe HTPC people wrt to getting the wrong idea and having expectations...
[11:48] <fALSO> LOL
[11:48] <fALSO> emulator box
[11:48] <fALSO> with a cpu with the speed of one from 1989
[11:48] <shirro> fALSO: it depends what your expectations are. when I was a kid I was programming on a b&w telly in blocky letters and the screen kept flickering
[11:48] <Da|Mummy> judging software after the first couple hundreds delivered doesnt make much sense either
[11:48] <fALSO> i used to program on zx spectrum 48k too
[11:48] <fALSO> but on todays age, that doesnt make any sense

[11:49] <Hourd> hurr
[11:49] <shirro> fALSO: the point is kids these days don't have spectrums and aren't learning to program
[11:49] <fALSO> LOL
[11:49] <M0RBD> They could get decent board for that money :D
[11:49] <fALSO> but all of them have computer
[11:49] <fALSO> but all of them have computers
[11:49] <fALSO> to acesss facebooks and stuff
[11:50] <fALSO> so its... EASIER, and cheaper
[11:50] <fALSO> to install a IDE and a Language
[11:50] <fALSO> that having to buy a "specific" machien to learn
[11:50] <fALSO> but thats just the marketing that was used
[11:50] <fALSO> to make all the zombies buy one :-P
[11:50] <Hourd> fALSO: a huge amount dont have their own computer
[11:50] <fALSO> yes
[11:50] <fALSO> in africa maybe
[11:50] <Hourd> no even in the UK
[11:51] <shirro> fALSO: parents aren't so keen on kids soldering stuff onto the family pc or mac
[11:51] * AdrianG (~amphetami@unaffiliated/amphetamine) has left #raspberrypi
[11:51] <fALSO> get a arduino
[11:51] <BenO> shirro, absolutely, or the software equivalent
[11:51] <fALSO> ifs its to learn programming and eletronic
[11:51] <cjbaird> Da|Mummy: "...but that's what Gen Y does, after their lifetimes of getting Instant Gratifaction froma mouse clink.." :P
[11:51] <Hourd> alot dont have access to a computer at home, but alot do have a family computer but its still hard tog et them into programming
[11:52] <BenO> Random parent: "Farmville isn't working as well as it was. What did you do to it, with your python thing?"
[11:52] <Meatballs> you could do all the same stuff on your family pc but its partly a mental block
[11:52] <fALSO> that doesnt make any sense
[11:52] <fALSO> but ok
[11:52] <Meatballs> when you learnt with a bbc,spectrum, win3.11, win95 you broke, but it was simple enough to fix
[11:52] <M0RBD> shirro: looking at the pictures of PI's received by people it looks like chinese parents don't mind their kids soldering PI's.
[11:52] <Meatballs> nowadays where do you start to fix win 7?
[11:52] <fALSO> LOL m0rbd
[11:52] <fALSO> LOL m0rbd !!!!
[11:53] <BenO> There are a lot of parents who view the family pc as voodoo - attributing unrelated acts as causation
[11:53] <Meatballs> do you really want to dick around with the ?300 gpu to see if its seated correctly?
[11:53] <fALSO> yes
[11:53] <fALSO> they dont allow the kids to use the pc
[11:53] <fALSO> but will allow them to connect the keybiard, mouse lcd
[11:53] <fALSO> to a rpi
[11:53] <Meatballs> I would, but I grew up with experience of pluggin and dicking around with new machines
[11:53] <fALSO> LOL
[11:53] <fALSO> well, enjoy
[11:53] <Meatballs> its ?16 which is why you dont care
[11:53] <Meatballs> rather than ?500
[11:54] <BenO> fALSO, or at schools - the battles I've had with school BOFHs who didn't have the intelligence to be a true bastard...
[11:54] <fALSO> will wait a few more weeks to learn moar about this lol
[11:54] <Meatballs> and lots of families go with laptops nowadays
[11:54] <Meatballs> which are even less likely to be toyed around with
[11:54] <shirro> schools are the same. if you show some understanding you get viewed with suspicion. lots of anti-intellectual witch hunts against "hackers"
[11:54] <shirro> only way to please the authorities is to get people off the "real" pcs
[11:55] <Meatballs> when I was teaching we weren't allowed admin access to reset kids passwords
[11:55] <Meatballs> which ended in added workload for technicians, longer delays as kids wandered around school
[11:55] <shirro> lots of schools don't even control their own it infrastructure
[11:55] <Meatballs> oh you want this piece of software installed? its free isit?
[11:55] <cjbaird> Hourd+Ben0: Yep, I know //all// about the clueless parents blaming the family hacker for everything on the computer.. >_>
[11:55] <Meatballs> fill in this form and we'll get back to you in 6 months.
[11:56] <M0RBD> fALSO: jokes aside... I'm a bit surprised over the quality... As I have some experience if cards made overthre and they where reasonable good quality..
[11:56] <Hourd> cjbaird: i had the same =[ still do and i dont live there anymore
[11:56] <Meatballs> I broke my family PC loads of times
[11:56] <Meatballs> but nothing a quick format and long reinstall wouldn't fix ;)
[11:57] <zgreg> re: earlier discussion
[11:57] <ShiftPlusOne> Does UK have some sort of consumer protection thing that you can contact if you were scammed by a certain business? (not raspberry pi, obviously)
[11:57] <M0RBD> format c: autostart /yes
[11:57] <zgreg> I think it was a big mistake to make those xbmc and q3 demos so early
[11:57] <M0RBD> zgreg: yeah
[11:57] <M0RBD> zgreg: they created an expectation.
[11:58] <Meatballs> trading standards I guess for commercial stuff ShiftPlusOne
[11:58] <shirro> not a huge qt fan but sad that more people didn't pick up on the qt demos. I guess you can do all that stuff in a browser with webgl these days but I thought that was more interesting than q3 or xbmc
[11:58] <zgreg> if they started to aggressivey market the board with such demos now, that woud have been more reasonable
[11:59] <cjbaird> Nothing sucks more than a parent buying a Mac Plus (in 1990), and being denied access to it because /You'll wreck it with your hacking!/ ... So yes, if I were <18yo now, I'd be beg/borrow/stealing anything so I could get an RPi. :D
[11:59] <Meatballs> or police if its serious fraud ?
[11:59] <Iota> Good morning, #raspberrypi.
[11:59] <ShiftPlusOne> Meatballs, thanks, I'll look into it.
[11:59] <shirro> Iota: is it still running?
[11:59] <piless_> zgreg: I dunno, it's a bit of a double edged sword. I doubt it would have barely gotten any publicity at all without them.
[11:59] <Iota> Yeah.
[11:59] <Iota> Left it on overnight. :o
[12:00] <shirro> Iota: watch out for that power bill
[12:00] <Iota> Going to try for the largest uptime! \o/
[12:00] <Iota> Haha.
[12:00] <Henchman21> 05:59:37 up 59 days, 15:27, 7 users, load average: 1.36, 1.29, 1.30
[12:00] <Iota> Nice.
[12:00] <zgreg> so, any angry reviews yet? :D
[12:01] <piless_> Iota: Got a ups?
[12:01] <shirro> Iota: I suspect there will be heaps of firmware/kernel updates as problems get reported so uptime probably isn't going to last
[12:01] <Iota> Nope D:
[12:01] <BenO> Iota and others w/ Pis, there are a few new bits and pieces on the firmware repo - a new start.elf and snd_bcm2835 for a start
[12:01] <Hourd> cjbaird: i wasnt alowed on the family computer after it got a virus, and i was blamed fro breaking it (i was 14) so i saved up, bought parts, built my own

[13:53] <_sundar_> BenO, but why?
[13:53] <philh> heh
[13:54] <friggle> sounds works fine in xbmc, which has an openmax audio backend
[13:54] <shirro> techman2: nope. some e14 rep on the pi forums said some were shipping to .au but don't know if I will be in first batch or not
[13:54] <BenO> _sundar_, for a start, the ALSA driver for the sound hw is - at best and in scare quotes - "Alpha" quality
[13:54] <_sundar_> BenO, I've got a beagleboard xM but this one doesn't decode 1080p.
[13:55] <techman2> shirro: yeah, they're saying they're in serial production now but they're talking about no more until another 4k in may after that?
[13:55] <_sundar_> BenO, hmm that is one big bummer
[13:55] <zgreg> shouldn't the xM up to it?

[13:55] <_sundar_> zgreg, nah the specs says no 1080p

[13:56] <_sundar_> BenO, well I'll wait for some more time then. The pandaboard does 1080p with good audio support but its way too costly
[13:57] <BenO> friggle, It looks like the SD slot is just a little picky and I am unlucky - It was the randomness of the boots that confused me
[13:57] <friggle> BenO: as in the slot is badly soldered, or just an issue with sd cards?
[13:58] <shirro> _sundar_: I am sure the Pi will get there. The roku2 has the same hw. might just be a but frustrating if you want it to work out of the box at this stage
[13:58] <BenO> friggle, eg cards that work fine in other embedded devices (GP2X for one) just do not want to work in this board
[13:58] <friggle> I haven't thrown loads of media at it, but xbmc seemed in pretty good shape to me. Not ready for prime time yet, but worked well enough
[13:58] <BenO> friggle, I've found a card that works and in due time I'll find someone else with a card that works on their RPi for me to try on this one
[13:58] <_sundar_> shirro, hmm also will there be any minor hardware revisions in the board? any problems seen so far in the first batch?
[13:59] <friggle> BenO: sounds like a plan
[13:59] <shirro> _sundar_: all I have heard of is sd card problems - people just get another card
[13:59] <BenO> _sundar_, I agree with friggle - it's in decent shape and should improve in time

[14:03] <BenO> shirro +1
[14:03] <ReggieUK> so what's the issue with SD atm? I know some where having issues yesterday, is it more than class 10 issues?
[14:04] <_sundar_> shirro, xbmc will be the only use for me. if there are no hardware issues i'd order even now. hope it'll take two weeks or more to deliver

[14:05] <_sundar_> i've got only class10 SD cards. is there any problem with specific class or brand or something?
[14:05] <ReggieUK> yes
[14:05] <ReggieUK> class 10 are known to have issues with the pi
[14:05] <BenO> ReggieUK, At the moment, the issues are just anecdotal (eg I have a problem, not There is a problem) - I need more cards to test with to see if it is just my board for example
[14:05] <BenO> (aside from the class 10, which has been confirmed?)
[14:05] <zgreg> the problem isn't specific to class 10, it's specifc to SD 3.0
[14:05] <ReggieUK> have you tried transflash or microSD in an adapter?

[14:06] <zgreg> the SD 3.0 standard mandates a new lowered I/O voltage of 1.8V, and the raspberry pi does not support that. unfortunately it still initializes the cards to SD 3.0 mode...
[14:06] <ReggieUK> so is there a test for whether your card has SD 3.0 support?
[14:06] <shirro> is there a diagnostic you can run on a card to see if it is SD 3.0?
[14:07] <ReggieUK> zgreg, I Thought that was a 1bit/4bit issue? or is that the difference between sd 3.0 and sd x.0 ?
[14:07] <zgreg> well, you can't do that with a normal SD reader for the PC...
[14:07] <zgreg> ReggieUK: no, it's not 1bit vs 4bit

[14:08] <ReggieUK> zgreg, well, that's what I'd thought, I've been running other arm devices that futz with SD and they all run 1/4bit

[14:52] <ukscone> 91013xxxx vs 91053xxxx
[14:52] <chronofast> maybe you get two, sounds good to me

[14:52] <Kolin> they sell more than just rpis though
[14:53] <ukscone> chronofast: as soon as i saw it i rang them and they said i couldn't kill the 2nd
[14:53] <chronofast> ohh is that odd, I bet you could now, as long as it's on backorder you should be able to
[14:53] <ukscone> Kolin: yes they do but normally if i order closely say 3 days the order number is diff by a couple of thousand
[14:53] <ukscone> chronofast: not last time i tried (last week)

[15:02] <BenO> Caver, or if you are talking about the ALSA part - still working on that :)
[15:02] * Ducky20091 (~Marc_Turp@host-42-154.ilnojun.clients.pavlovmedia.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[15:03] <Caver> I got mine going - and also it turned out had a card that you could write to, verify, and 5 mins later verify again, with a different checksum!!!
[15:03] <Matt> Caver: well that's intresting
[15:03] <BenO> Caver, Very odd
[15:03] <BenO> Hope you found a stable card!
[15:03] * tero (~tne@ Quit (Ping timeout: 248 seconds)
[15:03] <Caver> though I did get hacking away, and have successfully written high and low to the GPIO port and actually measured it
[15:04] <Caver> yup ... thank goodness for 24 hour tesco's
[15:04] <Caver> though interesting factoid ... GPIO 3, for some reason is GPIO22 if your talking to it from the /sys/class/gpio bit of the kernel!
[15:05] <Caver> gpio's 3 and 5 have the pull resistor built in, so thats cool

[15:05] <ukscone> Caver: probably a an alt func remapping
[15:05] <MilanFIN> do I get any e-mail from rs immediately?
[15:05] <MilanFIN> after the register
[15:05] <MilanFIN> to interest for raspberry pi
[15:05] <MilanFIN> any confirmation?
[15:05] <Caver> I don't know but it was hellishly confusing
[15:06] <Caver> Names GPIO0, GPIO1, GPIOx-ALTy, etc refer to the signal names on the SoC as enumerated in the Broadcom datasheet, where "x" matches BCM2835 number (without leading zero) and "y" is the alternate number column 0 to 5 on page 102-103 of the Broadcom document. For example, depending on what you are describing, use either "GPIO7" to refer to a row of the table, and "GPIO7-ALT0" would refer to a specific cell of the table.
[15:06] <Caver> what *ever* that means
[15:07] <Caver> still - am totally thrilled it worked and such an easy interface to use

[16:17] <SimonT> zgreg: really? I've heard that some people who ordered from Farnell have had their order filled...
[16:17] <Blazemore> Well, I have no output, and I'm thinking it might be an issue with not enough power
[16:17] <Blazemore> I've tried with and without the SD card
[16:17] <Blazemore> Main question: What is supposed to happen if you boot without an SD card?
[16:17] <mkopack> Need at least a 700ma 5V adaptor. MUST be 5v, 5.2V might be too much
[16:18] <SimonT> Nothing I think...
[16:18] <zgreg> mkopack: no, 5.2V is ok
[16:18] <Blazemore> Doesn't microUSB negotiate that kind of thing?
[16:18] <mkopack> And have you confirmed that your SD card is correct? You should see 2 partitions, 1 FAt, 1 EXT2(or was it 4?)
[16:18] <passstab> i know they actually ship since i saw there no preorder/donation policy
[16:19] <Blazemore> mkopack: I haven't considered the SD card as the problem because I assumed there would be at least something put out over HDMI if I boot without it
[16:19] <mkopack> zgreg: 5.2V is the extreme limit and if the adaptor says it's 5.2 that 5.2+/- some error, 5.2+ error will exceed the 5.0+/-.2 that the RPi can handle
[16:19] <zgreg> SimonT: as in, they couldn't tell me anything about my order and the odd expected delivery date
[16:19] <SimonT> Oh ok, that's still a bit strange
[16:19] <Blazemore> But I'll try redoing the SD card with proper GNU dd rather than that Windows thing
[16:19] <Blazemore> Second question: Does it have to be an SD card or can it be a MicroSD adaptor?
[16:19] <SimonT> Blazemore: are you using an external SD card reader?
[16:20] <Blazemore> SimonT: My PC doesn't have an SD slot, so I'm using my phone as a card reader
[16:20] <zgreg> mkopack: yeah, but still, 5.2V is inside the USB tolerance
[16:20] <Blazemore> It's worked in the past to make bootable Linux liveUSBs
[16:21] <shirro> Blazemore: phone? so is it a microsd?
[16:21] <mkopack> Blazemore: YEs, it can be a microSD inside an adaptor. Do NOT use a class 10 card though

[16:21] <Caver> microSD with an adaptor is essentially fine
[16:21] <usa> Hey is there an Ubuntu server arm port I can use for raspberry pi?
[16:21] <Caver> usa: sadly not .. they only support a more advanced form of the ARM processor - so it doesn't work
[16:21] <Blazemore> usa https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ARM/Server
[16:22] <Blazemore> Oh
[16:22] <Blazemore> Scrub that then

[16:22] <Caver> they use ARMv7 I think, and Pi is ARMv6
[16:22] <shirro> usa: debian looks practically the same as a server anyway
[16:22] <Blazemore> Third question: Any good retro game emulators with ARM ports? Especially S/NES and Gameboy/Advance
[16:22] <mkopack> zgreg: yes, 5.2 (exactly) is fine. But if the adaptor says it puts out 5.2, then it might put out 5.3V which is above what the RPi can handle
[16:22] <SimonT> usa: Ubuntu is very similar to debian
[16:23] * Simooon (~simon@ Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[16:23] <BenO|brb> Blazemore, there is virtualboyadvance in the contrib/non-free repos, but that may not work until ALSA does.
[16:23] <usa> But I can't just take an ubuntu server iso and load it into Pi can I? It's x86 based.... Doesn't there have to be an arm port for it?
[16:23] <BenO|brb> running it sound free might work round it, depending on how virtualboy adv does its thing
[16:24] <Blazemore> usa yes it has to have a kernel compiled for ARM, and all the programs compiled for ARM
[16:24] <RaTTuS|BIG> usa - no - you could nevre run an ISO on the PI anyway
[16:24] <Blazemore> BenO|brb: You can compile VBA without sound support with ./configure
[16:24] <BCMM> usa: if i recall correctly, Ubuntu's official ARM version does not run on the Pi's CPU
[16:24] <usa> OK blaze--- so does this exist for ubuntu server is my question----
[16:24] <BCMM> due to optimisation for later ARM cores
[16:24] <BenO|brb> usa, The Pi runs debian amongst other things - why do you need "ubuntu server"?
[16:24] <Caver> gngb - a Color Gameboy emulator
[16:24] <Blazemore> usa no, and here's the thing
[16:24] <usa> OK, that's what I was afraid of----
[16:24] <usa> :(
[16:24] <BenO|brb> You can run nginx, etc on other distros
[16:24] <Blazemore> It's not like a normal computer where you boot from install media
[16:24] <Caver> doing a quick apt-cache search for games ... there is a lot
[16:24] <Blazemore> When you flash the SD card, that *is* the hard disk
[16:25] <fALSO> blazemore, do you really think you will run a SNES emulator on a PI ?
[16:25] <Caver> usa: what is it your wanting to do with it?
[16:25] <BenO|brb> Caver, yeah - one of the side reasons I am keen to kick some form of OSS or ALSA into working shape ;)
[16:25] <Blazemore> fALSO: I'd love to be able to have a retro gaming machine totally silent
[16:25] <fALSO> it doesnt have enough cpu
[16:25] <fALSO> for any kind of emulation
[16:25] <shirro> usa: use the default pi debian image. it can do everything debian can do. ubuntu is based on debian so it will be very familiar
[16:26] <Caver> visualboyadvance - full featured Game Boy Advance emulator is one package to try then
[16:26] <fALSO> the best case would be a z80 cpu
[16:26] <fALSO> nothing more
[16:26] <BenO|brb> Blazemore, It certainly can run VICE (C64), Stella (Atari 2600) and Spectrum
[16:26] <fALSO> gameboy advance i doubt
[16:26] <BenO|brb> and does so with ease
[16:26] <usa> yeah, and thats exactly what I want Blaze--- Caver--- I want a text based console- no GUI at all- I don't even want the option of a gui loaded- I need basic things like apt-get availability/repositories... ssh server, sftpd, and apache2.... that's pretty much it. I want to run as light weight as possible. raspberry pi will be PERFECT for what I want to do. Any ideas on a distro?
[16:26] <fALSO> maybe normal gameboy
[16:26] <Blazemore> Isn't the current lot of SNES emulators very efficient? And didn't the SNES have like a 3Mhz CPU?
[16:26] <fALSO> yes
[16:26] <Blazemore> usa Debian
[16:26] * troth (~troth@nat/hp/x-yotuarrlxjqahjhw) has left #raspberrypi
[16:26] <fALSO> zsnes is tottaly on x86 assembly
[16:26] <fALSO> so forget about it
[16:26] <Blazemore> Oh
[16:27] <BenO|brb> Blazemore, the best one for speed (IMO zsnes) was very tuned for x64
[16:27] <Blazemore> That'd be why it's so efficient
[16:27] <usa> isn't debian bloated out with gnome 2 and whatnot?
[16:27] <BenO|brb> x86
[16:27] <fALSO> and snes9x needs a powerfull cpu
[16:27] <cjbaird> usa: just use any random distro, and remove the xorg packages...
[16:27] <shirro> usa: apt-get remove the stuff you don't want
[16:27] <Caver> usa debian
[16:27] * BenO|brb is now known as BenO
[16:27] <Caver> you can apt get, it's all well packaged ... and ubuntu is actually just a tarted up version of debian anyway :)
[16:28] <zgreg> snes9x probably won't work
[16:28] <passstab> are there instructions to make a custom image?
[16:28] <fALSO> you guys can forget about most of emulation
[16:28] <fALSO> because the cpu is VERY SLOW
[16:28] <zgreg> modern PC emulators are tuned for accuracy, not speed
[16:28] <fALSO> and no emulator will use the GPU
[16:28] <zgreg> fALSO: heh, that's what I'm trying to tell people all the time, but I'm shot down as a troll...
[16:29] <Caver> erm ... setit up how you like, switch off, use DD to back the image up :)

[16:29] <BenO> fALSO, I agree that many will run poorly, but let's wait a little til we try them out
[16:29] <fALSO> ya
[16:29] <fALSO> they will run, at 2fps
[16:29] <fALSO> im just waiting that someone tries to play a xvid or divx file
[16:29] <fALSO> on the PI
[16:29] <Caver> certainly until the X acceleration is sorted out a but, I wouldn't get too advanced with the gaming side of things
[16:29] <RaYmAn> fALSO: is it any more slow than any other similar specced arm device?
[16:29] <usa> wow- I get a lot more support in here than in the ubuntu channel- thanks guys--- I think pi is going to be a huge hit, and it would be beneficial to have a minimal text based console only for it- people could really get the feel for linux and how to use the guts of it..... I'll look into stripping down debian- I'll have to find out how to boot to just the console- if I remove x.org will
[16:29] <usa> it just auto boot to the console or are there other steps I need to do first? <-- kind of a newbie to linux.
[16:29] <fALSO> to see if the cpu can decode that
[16:30] <fALSO> because the gpu just likes h264, nothing more
[16:30] <Caver> usa: yea you can make it auto run a program on boot
[16:30] <mkopack> usa: You'll boot to a command line. From there you either start the emulator (if it doesn't need a desktop, or you startx to start your desktop and then run the emulaotor
[16:30] <fALSO> any of you guys that have one have already tried to play any kind of video that isnt h264 ?
[16:30] <Caver> and yes you can not auto start X ... in face debian doesn't anyway
[16:30] <mkopack> but yeah, you can change your boot up to start the emulator immediately
[16:31] <shirro> usa: I believe the debian image boots to a console anyway. you can remove packages if you need room. the image is just a way to get people going and I am sure more polished stuff will come out later including images aimed at console/servers
[16:32] <usa> nice- you guys are awesome- I'll check it out- I live near boston, and I'm going to order from Newark.... (local distributor) just awaiting stock!!! I'm very excited for it!!

[16:32] <RaYmAn> fALSO: fwiw, there is a fairly well running PS1 emulator for GP2X... and gp2x is a 200mhz dualcore armv4t device.
[16:32] <Caver> :)
[16:33] <Caver> well work on the basis that it's about as fast as a pentium 2 - 300MHz
[16:33] <Caver> and you shoudl have an idea of it's performance
[16:33] <BenO> The GP2X also had a nice port of MAME too - v0.39 IIRC
[16:33] <fALSO> i doubt about that "fairly well"
[16:33] <RaYmAn> hence why I compared it to a another ARM processor ;)
[16:33] <Caver> for stuff that can be accelerated, probably a lot better
[16:33] <Blazemore> Someone will almost certainly make an image for a MAME arcade machine or something
[16:33] <mkopack> god knows I plan to!
[16:34] <Caver> hehehe defo
[16:34] <mkopack> As well as a C64 emulator
[16:34] <RaYmAn> fALSO: I haven't tried it myself, but there is a video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4wvBKFQIAdo
[16:34] * Caver pats his very old rom collection
[16:34] <BenO> Blazemore, It's more that the MAME port will be an earlier version, before it got overly concerned with accuracy
[16:34] <fALSO> there was also a video of the pi running quake 3
[16:34] <fALSO> there was also a video of the pi running quake 3 - but now theres no drivers
[16:34] <RaYmAn> fALSO: anyways, my point was that PS1 is a bit more demanding than NES/SNES =P
[16:34] <BenO> fALSO, ?
[16:34] <fALSO> so... lets forget about the video
[16:34] <Caver> yup - which shows how fast the GPU is when it's in accelerated mode
[16:34] <BenO> fALSO, I was playing it last week
[16:34] <fALSO> on a PI ?
[16:34] <BenO> Yes
[16:34] <fALSO> i see everyone saying that they dont have accelerated graphics, etc
[16:35] <mkopack> In fact, plan to take my Mega MAME set of 50DVD's full of Arcade, C64, Amiga, Intellivision, Collecovision, Nintendo, etc. roms
[16:35] <BCMM> Caver: there really is no meaning in using clock speeds to compare different architectures
[16:35] <BenO> They don't have *2d* acceleration for X yet
[16:35] <fALSO> LOL
[16:35] <BCMM> or even different subarchitechtures
[16:35] <BenO> But the OpenGL ES 2.0, and OpenMAXIL works fine
[16:35] <Caver> BCMM, that was the quote from those that should know on the blog on the performance front!
[16:35] <BenO> it's the plumbing between the hw and the normal linux APIs that is being worked on
[16:36] <BCMM> Caver: ah, i see
[16:36] <cjbaird> We had a talk here a few hours ago about how the Quake3 demo did more harm than good...
[16:36] <BCMM> Caver: i thought you said it ran at 300MHz and so was similar to a P2
[16:36] <fALSO> thats really nice
[16:36] <fALSO> selll first
[16:36] <fALSO> do the drivers then
[16:36] <phantoxe> status on 2D
[16:36] <fALSO> LOL
[16:36] <BCMM> "it is similar to a 300MHz p2" is fair enough
[16:37] <Caver> nope it runs at 700MHz
[16:37] <phantoxe> HOT
[16:37] <BCMM> it was the "- 300Mhz that threw me"

[16:38] <Caver> How powerful is it?
[16:38] <Caver> The GPU provides Open GL ES 2.0, hardware-accelerated OpenVG, and 1080p30 H.264 high-profile decode.
[16:38] <Caver> The GPU is capable of 1Gpixel/s, 1.5Gtexel/s or 24 GFLOPs of general purpose compute and features a bunch of texture filtering and DMA infrastructure.
[16:38] <Caver> That is, graphics capabilities are roughly equivalent to Xbox 1 level of performance. Overall real world performance is something like a 300MHz Pentium 2, only with much, much swankier graphics.
[16:38] <Caver> from the FAQ - http://www.raspberrypi.org/faqs
[16:38] <Caver> then you get into overclocking, but lets not over complicate stuff
[16:39] <zgreg> Caver: it runs at 700 MHz - yes. but it does NOT perform like an x86 at 700 MHz at all!
[16:39] <cjbaird> There's also things like ALU pipelines and such, which x86 goes overboard on. I have a 800MHz MIPS Loongson CPU, but because it doesn't have all the instruction/math/etc. concurrent processing, the 2F specs out to about the same as a 450MHz P3.
[16:39] <Caver> I know
[16:39] <Caver> all I'm trying to give is a feel for things
[16:40] <Caver> though have to say ... for day to day desktop application stuff, it's faster than I thought it was going to be
[16:40] <zgreg> just saying, there are so many people that assume this...
[16:40] <Caver> defo wouldn't want it as only machine

[17:05] <Caver> check the readme it ought to say in the kernel source
[17:05] <Caver> - In order to boot your new kernel, you'll need to copy the kernel
[17:05] <Caver> image (e.g. .../linux/arch/i386/boot/bzImage after compilation)
[17:05] <Caver> to the place where your regular bootable kernel is found.

[17:37] <Hopsy> zgreg: why strange
[17:37] <mkopack> You need a battery pack, a USB KB, a USB touchpad, a integrated USb hub??? What else?
[17:37] <mkopack> Maybe even add in a USB HD
[17:37] <traeak> so with the mali and qualcomm gpus under reverse engineering...
[17:37] <Hopsy> mkopack: screen
[17:37] <mkopack> and then some sort of screen
[17:37] <M0RBD> zgreg: Pandaboard or Beagleboard would be more suiteable imho
[17:37] <traeak> i guess there needs to be rpis out in the wild for that
[17:38] <mkopack> Should be build able - I bet Ben Heck could make something that looked really nice
[17:38] <Hopsy> mkopack: plus it must be cheap as possible
[17:38] <traeak> mele a1000/2000 would work if you don't need the pins
[17:38] <mkopack> Hopsy: Well, the screen would be the hardest part??? Everythign else can be gotten pretty cheap
[17:38] <Hopsy> how much will a screen cost?
[17:39] <Hopsy> something like 15.6 inch
[17:39] <zgreg> the sum of all the small and cheap parts won't be so small, though
[17:39] <des2> What size ?
[17:39] <passstab> i'm sorry
[17:39] <Hourd> Hopsy: i will be using a usb powered 13" that was ??100
[17:39] <zgreg> plus, the pi is not particularly energy efficient
[17:39] <Hourd> 1366x768
[17:39] <mkopack> No, but if you can find the screen relatively cheap, then the other stuff should be less than $100 no problem. Powering the screen is going to be the tough part
[17:39] <Hopsy> how much euros is that Hourd?
[17:39] <mkopack> That drastically ups the power requirements
[17:39] <zgreg> it's not made for battery usage
[17:39] <passstab> so did you find the jumper?
[17:40] <Hourd> Hopsy: look it up?
[17:40] <mkopack> But you COULD make something like a C-64 (all built into the KB, plug into your own screen) pretty cheap
[17:40] <Hourd> mkopack: yeah that would be awesome
[17:40] <Caver> I still can't get over how small it is
[17:41] <Hopsy> Hourd: link to that screen?
[17:41] <mkopack> You'd need some way to power the RPi + the USB Hub...
[17:41] <Hopsy> and mkopacksounds like an idea :p
[17:41] <mkopack> Some sort of battery pack that can put out enough juice. That's the $$$$ and weight...
[17:41] <Hopsy> sounds *
[17:41] <mkopack> Evyerthing else is small, and lightweightt and pretty inexpensive
[17:42] <passstab> is there a way to use the pi with a atrix?
[17:42] <mkopack> The only other issue is the screwy jack layout on the RPi???
[17:42] <Hopsy> I am going to buy a new notebook
[17:42] <DDave> why skrewy?
[17:43] <traeak> Hopsy: i just replaced the optical drive on my work notebook with a caddy and a 1tb samsung drive
[17:43] <passstab> Hopsy, hang on to the old one just in case
[17:44] <passstab> what brand?
[17:44] <mkopack> How do you hook the USB hub up while still exposing the Ethernet jack to be plugged in?

[17:48] <piless> is that a docking station?
[17:49] <passstab> i got the lemur
[17:49] <mkopack> Yeah, basically.
[17:49] <RaTTuS|BIG> https://github.com/jmechner/Prince-of-Persia-Apple-II <- now theres something to port ...
[17:49] <piless> Oh, I never had a laptop that supported that :(
[17:49] <mkopack> You just hook up USB from your laptop and leave this on your desk hooked up to your monitor, keyboard, mouse etc.
[17:49] <mkopack> But I'm saying, you could use something like that to expose jacks if you were trying to build a Laptop out of an RPi
[17:50] <Caver> I like the mad scientest brain in a box approach of the pi though
[17:50] <passstab> but zareason supports Debian
[17:50] <mkopack> So you'd include something like this IN the "laptop"
[17:50] <piless> mkopack: video over usb.. how does that work? Has it got it's own gpu?
[17:50] <mkopack> piless: yes.. basically. I have a USB 9" Monitor
[17:50] <mkopack> That's what it does.
[17:50] <Caver> mind is now held up by the HDMI cable bluetacked to the back of the monitor
[17:50] <Kolin> its probably displaylink
[17:50] <mkopack> but you have to have drivers for your OS. We had a hell of a time getting it working right on Ubuntu x86
[17:51] <piless> Daaamn, I was looking for an external graphics card a couple of years ago.. but they were so bloody expensive
[17:51] <mkopack> they are *NOT* fast BTW...
[17:51] <Kolin> http://www.displaylink.com/
[17:51] <mkopack> But they can work fine for normal window non-graphics/games use

[18:21] <piless> curahack: He has a twitter
[18:21] <traeak> Hopsy: looks like magenta actually
[18:21] <curahack> what's your twitter?
[18:21] <Hexxeh> curahack: my twitter, @Hexxeh
[18:21] * NIN101 (~NIN@ has joined #raspberrypi
[18:21] * zleap (~zleap@dsl-217-155-46-222.zen.co.uk) has joined #raspberrypi
[18:21] * ARMadillo signs up for twitter.
[18:22] <piless> Hexxeh: You've got your very own stalker now.
[18:22] * curahack following @Hexxeh
[18:22] <BenO> Hexxeh, Your ideas intrigue me. Do you produce a magazine or monographs so that I may follow your progress? ;)
[18:22] <Hopsy> I bet it will work much better then cyan or even blue traeak
[18:22] <vgrade> Hexxeh, you adding the bcminit into browser code
[18:22] <piless> Hopsy: blue, not cyan
[18:23] <passstab> Hexxeh, when do you think of b2g?
[18:23] <traeak> Hopsy: yes magenta/green is better for chomatic abberation and for light balance...
[18:23] <Hexxeh> vgrade: gonna try the hack first
[18:23] <Hexxeh> also
[18:23] <traeak> Hopsy: polarized glasses are much better though
[18:23] <Hexxeh> SHE LIVES!
[18:23] <Hexxeh> Chromium running
[18:23] <Hexxeh> already it feels faster than midori
[18:23] <Hexxeh> and this is a debug build :D
[18:23] <BenO> Hexxeh, bell and whistles running too?
[18:23] <Hexxeh> such as?
[18:23] <piless> I hate chromatic abberations so much.. Especially on highlights. Rages the shit out of me.
[18:23] <traeak> Hopsy: you can buy a vizio 3d tv scan line polarized for pretty cheap (under 500usd)
[18:24] <Da|Mummy> now port Lightweight2
[18:24] <BenO> Hexxeh, chromium using the acceleration in everything :)
[18:24] <friggle> Hexxeh: what was the segfault issue in the end?
[18:25] <Hexxeh> friggle: toolchain bug
[18:25] <Hexxeh> BenO: ah, not accelerated yet, but baby steps :P
[18:25] <Hexxeh> i'm glad to see it running at all
[18:25] <Hexxeh> i've spent untold hours hacking on this xD
[18:25] <Da|Mummy> chromium is too much for rpi. port lightweight2 and jumanji
[18:25] <friggle> Hexxeh: nice :) What toolchain did you switch to?
[18:25] <Hopsy> traeak:
[18:25] <Hopsy> how do I know
[18:26] <BenO> Hexxeh, major congrats :)
[18:26] <Hopsy> my tv supports that
[18:26] <ukscone> straw that broke the camel's back i can cope with the ruh roh shaggy and the jesus and saddam comments behind my back but in the street someone just said charlie manson must have escaped -- definitely haircut and shave this weekend
[18:26] <Hexxeh> friggle: CodeSourcery
[18:26] <Hopsy> I was looking up to http://tweakers.net/pricewatch/285343/sapphire-hd6950.html @ traeak
[18:26] <BenO> ukscone, Ah I see you are also a follower of the 'unix guru' fashion book ;)
[18:26] <piless> ukscone: Are you on crack?
[18:27] <ukscone> BenO: i get a haircut and shave once a year whether i need it or not
[18:27] <Hopsy> lol
[18:27] <Kolin> lol
[18:27] <ukscone> i forgot last year though
[18:27] <curahack> Anyone else doing interesting Pi projects?
[18:27] <Hopsy> ukscone is
[18:28] * OneFix_Work (~onefix@ Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[18:28] <Da|Mummy> im watching my emails and my farnell order page
[18:28] <traeak> i have to work on my project then
[18:28] <piless> ukscone just ports boring old emulators
[18:28] <curahack> cool
[18:28] <fALSO> "ports" -> builds them
[18:30] <Hexxeh> lots of tab crashes
[18:30] <hotwings> curahack - im going to see how much of a fall the rpi can withstand before breaking
[18:30] <Hexxeh> but i think i know why
[18:30] <piless> fALSO: I like how the part of that sentence you disagree with is ports and not boring!
[18:30] <traeak> but i'm getting a mele a1000 in my hands long before i'll ever see an rpi
[18:30] <Hexxeh> chromium really doesn't run well with just fbdev
[18:30] <BenO> curahack, I'd say that we are at the community bootstrap stage - people getting their hands on it and kicking the tires, trying different things
[18:30] <traeak> and the mele a1000 ends up being a cheaper platform actually in general
[18:30] <fALSO> so... i cross compile something to another arch , that is porting ?
[18:30] <fALSO> most software is READY to do that
[18:30] <fALSO> you dont need to make anything
[18:30] <piless> fALSO: No, I'm saying you don't disagree that they're boring
[18:31] <fALSO> that wasnt me
[18:31] <Hexxeh> http://cl.ly/Ft8Z
[18:31] <BenO> ukscone, Have you got any emulators in mind to port over?
[18:31] <Hexxeh> You saw it here first folks :D
[18:31] <piless> fALSO: No, I'm saying you don't disagree that they're boring
[18:31] <piless> oops
[18:31] <fALSO> the pi isnt good enough to emulators
[18:31] <ukscone> piless: and interpreters and compilers can't forget them
[18:31] <fALSO> the cpu is very slow
[18:31] <fALSO> most of the emulators are very cpu intensive
[18:31] <friggle> fALSO: rubbish
[18:31] <piless> ukscone: I thought that was assumed.
[18:31] <RaTTuS|BIG> cool Hexxeh
[18:32] <Hexxeh> from initially looking at this
[18:32] * BenO rushes to twitter - quick, chromium on a Pi!
[18:32] <fALSO> rubish ? try to run emulators on a P2 350mhz
[18:32] <ukscone> piless: the raspi runs cp/m great -- use wordstar on it all the time
[18:32] <Hexxeh> it doesn't look like memory is going to be a bottleneck
[18:32] <Hexxeh> it's CPU
[18:32] <fALSO> rubish ? try to run emulators on a P2 350mhz, thats the equivalente of the PI cpu
[18:32] <hotwings> we had the 'can rpi run emulators' chat a couple months ago
[18:32] <fALSO> ahhh... and you still need those 2d drivers working :-P
[18:32] <fALSO> it CAN run
[18:32] <fALSO> i can run snes emulator on a 48
[18:32] <fALSO> i can run snes emulator on a 486
[18:32] <fALSO> it will give just 1fps or so...
[18:32] <traeak> basically watch the rush of $50 cortex a8 set top boxes based on the a10 this summer
[18:33] <piless> ukscone: Can you do a ps3 emulator next?
[18:33] <fALSO> he just compiles stuff, doesnt do anything
[18:33] <fALSO> lol.... forget
[18:33] <hotwings> 1fps emulation is worthless
[18:33] <markus> please do the needful
[18:33] <ukscone> piless: nope as i have no interest in anything newer than 1987
[18:33] <BenO> ukscone++ :)
[18:33] <piless> ukscone: But I wasn't born until 1989!
[18:33] <fALSO> lol
[18:34] <friggle> fALSO: there are a whole range of playable emulators on the Dreamcast, GP2x, Dingoo, other far more underpowered machines
[18:34] <ukscone> piless: see told you no interest passed 1987 :)
[18:34] <piless> :(
[18:34] <fALSO> playable you mean, without major features
[18:34] <fALSO> liek sound
[18:34] <hotwings> rpi will be able to run a playable bash version of snake
[18:34] <ukscone> piless: that's why you weren't kb'ed yesterday :)
[18:34] <fALSO> or multiple layers
[18:34] <curahack> https://twitter.com/#!/Hexxeh/status/192289231463399424
[18:34] <ukscone> that and the fact you cleaned it up a bit
[18:34] <ukscone> :)
[18:34] <fALSO> nice resolution
[18:35] <piless> ukscone: I have authority issues
[18:35] <hotwings> ukscone - you shoulda seen him before you showed up today.. back to his old profanity tricks :\
[18:35] <des2> cp/m ? But will the Pi run GEM ?
[18:35] <piless> hotwings: Has anyone ever told you that you're a bit of a dick?
[18:36] <ukscone> hmmm perhaps i should give everyone ops EXCEPT piless :D
[18:36] * kalem (~kalem@unaffiliated/kalem) Quit (Quit: Sto andando via)
[18:36] <piless> ukscone: Surely there's worse people in here than me?
[18:36] <des2> piless try harder.
[18:36] <piless> What about that guy who keeps coming in here with different sob stories each time.
[18:36] <ukscone> piless: careful you should have said apendage :)
[18:36] <hotwings> piless - why do you insist on breaking the rules here when you think nobody is watching? and apparently now right in front of them when they are?
[18:37] <piless> hotwings: We're always being watched. You do know there's a log right?
[18:37] <piless> hotwings: It would take ukscone 5 seconds to do a ctrl+f for tits on the log
[18:38] <curahack> ukscone how is your project going?
[18:38] <hotwings> piless - like this:
[18:38] <hotwings> [08:51:57] <piless> Personally I think building a laptop out of the pi is a fucking terrible idea
[18:39] <hotwings> [08:53:55] <piless> or better yet use a fucking x86
[18:39] <piless> hotwings: It is a fucking terrible idea though
[18:39] <traeak> if he were a real man he'd just do /<search term> with vi :-p
[18:39] <piless> traeak: emacs
[18:40] * SphericalCow (user@unaffiliated/sphericalcow) has joined #raspberrypi
[18:40] <BenO> traeak, real devs search using assembler ;)
[18:40] <hotwings> piless - ignore the rules and ukscone warning all you want.. get yourself kb (like youve been told several times already)
[18:40] * ukscone sets mode +b piless!piless@
[18:41] <DDave> :p
[18:41] <passstab> what rule did he break?
[18:41] <DDave> he mentioned boobies.
[18:41] <DDave> :D
[18:41] <DDave> (please no ban..)
[18:41] <DDave> The channel is supposed to be PG13 or something passstab
[18:42] * piless was kicked from #raspberrypi by ukscone
[18:42] <hotwings> passstab - he cant manage to stop using profanity in here
[18:42] <hotwings> you can add ignoring warnings by ops also
[18:42] <ukscone> i don't think i banned him right so he can probably get back in but it's his 1st strike towards a permaban
[18:43] * mkopack (~mkopack@ has joined #raspberrypi
[18:43] <mkopack> BenO: (sorry, ran out to get lunch, just saw your reply about the emulators)
[18:43] <haltdef_> he's a troll, permban is probably in order anyway
[18:43] <DDave> Hey one stupid question, until when do we have to wait to be able to order one without "pre-order" ?
[18:43] * hugh (~textual@ Quit (Quit: Computer has gone to sleep.)
[18:43] <BenO> DDave, xmas sounds like a good estimate
[18:43] <mkopack> DDave: Prboably another month or two??? They gotta get through all the backlog first???
[18:44] <DDave> Thanks :)
[18:44] <mkopack> They (or at least Liz) seems to think that will happen quickly, but it all just depends on how fast they ramp up the production and how many new pre-orders they get in the mean time
[18:44] <DDave> Im gonna wait a bit more.. keep the units for people who are "total nerds"
[18:44] <passstab> i guess ##raspberrypi is the xxx channel then
[18:44] <hotwings> are they actually going to keep regular stock of rpi, or do production runs on-demand when enough orders come in (as was previously the plan)?
[18:44] <BenO> mkopack, DDave true, my xmas estimate was a programmer's one - guess the time, double it and add 40%
[18:45] <traeak> any idea on when the licensors are up and runing with production ?
[18:45] <zleap> http://www.cableuniverse.co.uk/cable-bundle-pack-for-raspberry-pi/
[18:45] <DDave> LOOL :D
[18:45] <zleap> looks good
[18:45] <mkopack> I thikn they'll try to keep at least SOME on hand after the backlog - but keep in mind, there's also the full blown "education" units that will be later this year....
[18:45] <mkopack> traeak: already are.
[18:45] <BenO> mkopack, Are they still aiming for the Model A's to be the education units?
[18:45] <traeak> mkopack: any idea on the throughput ?
[18:45] <hotwings> full-blown meaning they come with a case :)
[18:46] <mkopack> traeak: First "production" units should be arriving within the next 2 weeks I believe
[18:46] <traeak> i personally would still be fine with a model-a and would kind of prefer it
[18:46] <mkopack> Nope
[18:46] <BenO> mkopack, good :)
[18:46] <traeak> mkopack: and then we'll know how many a day they can handle?
[18:46] <mkopack> Who knows! They might give that info, they might not
[18:47] <mkopack> Liz just has indicated that the production level is WAY higher than we probably are anticipating.
[18:47] <mkopack> WAY WAY higher than the 10,000 / batch that the RPF would have been ordering in

[19:21] <mkopack> The scene with the younger Barathian and his wife??? and she's saying how if the "king" wants, she can have her brother come back in to "help"??? I was both laughing and revolted at the same time...
[19:21] <mkopack> But she DID have a nice rack :)
[19:21] <SpeedEvil> If this was another channel, I'd mention that I first heard Game of Thrones it was being read by a naked girl on the internet.

[19:22] <ewan> anyone tried usb webcam on a raspi yet?
[19:22] <SpeedEvil> ewan: Should in principle work fine.
[19:22] <mkopack> ewan: as long as it's a UVC standard webcam, no reason it shouldn't work
[19:22] <piless> mkopack: Yeah, the tyrion scenes were my favourite this episode!
[19:23] <ewan> SpeedEvil: I know it would work in principle, I'm wondering if anyone has tried it :)
[19:23] <SpeedEvil> ewan: It's just a case of compiling the right driver. Heavy ethernet at the same time may be complicated
[19:23] <ewan> SpeedEvil: yeah, I'm wondering about bus bandwidth. Guess I'll wait and see

[20:22] <BenO> mjr, alsa driver passes audio data to the GPU to be played.
[20:23] <BenO> mjr, It's straightforward to push data synchronously to both ALSA and the direct openmax connection, but the ALSA driver is not returning the right read-pointer position for asynchronous clients to work off of

[21:23] <jamesglanville> mkopack: yeah sometimes a rogue usb device or hub blocks comms for long enough to run out of command buffer commands
[21:23] <jamesglanville> BenO: nah I'll need a 12-5v converter, the reprap only has a couple of 100ma spare at 5v
[21:23] <mkopack> yeah
[21:24] <mkopack> Oout pf curiosity, since I've never run a 3D printer - I know you usually have some sort of PC driving the Arduino (or feeding it the commands)??? Does that PC have to be running some special Real Time OS +Prog, or does it run normal windows/linux + sw?
[21:24] <BenO> jamesglanville, g-code over serial (UART) to Mega?
[21:24] <Hexxeh> aaand now it loads pages without crashing every two seconds
[21:25] <jamesglanville> BenO: yeah
[21:25] <Hexxeh> v8 doesn't like armv6 at all
[21:25] <jamesglanville> mkopack: nah the printer has an arduino which has a little buffer so it can store the next few commands so you don't need rtos on the host pc

[21:26] <jamesglanville> BenO: go finish it, what needs to be done anyway?
[21:26] <mkopack> Ok, wasn't sure how they did it
[21:26] <BenO> jamesglanville, y-axis and extruder
[21:26] <BenO> and then calibrate ofc... :(
[21:27] <jamesglanville> BenO: use sprinter/marlin + slic3r + pronterface, then you only need 5 mins calibration to get decent prints
[21:29] <BenO> jamesglanville, true, I make more of it than I should. Just need one decent weekend at home to crack it, away from work :)
[21:29] <jamesglanville> BenO: you're forgetting the time you'll need for your second (and third for me :P) but must go, good luck with finishing your printer :)

[21:50] <Hexxeh> i tried it out of the box when i got it

[21:51] <BenO> Hexxeh, I had a similar experience with twitter, and other js heavy sites
[21:51] <BenO> having chromium as a workable option would really help
[21:51] <Hopsy> where is pilesss
[21:51] <Hexxeh> i'm confident we can get v8 running tickety-boo soon enough :P

[22:08] <DDave> I want cake :D
[22:08] <IT_Sean> cake is better than pie.
[22:08] <DDave> Btw why wont nobody make a "drop-test" for the Pi?
[22:08] <DDave> :D
[22:08] <DDave> That'd make lots of users rage!
[22:08] <IT_Sean> Seriousily, though... i wish i had some pi.
[22:09] <Matt> hey IT_Sean
[22:09] <IT_Sean> hey Matt
[22:09] <Matt> how's it going?
[22:09] <IT_Sean> well, i don't have a pi. Other than that, it's lovely.
[22:09] <IT_Sean> you?
[22:09] <BenO> DDave, I knocked it on the floor earlier but didn't film it ;)
[22:09] <DDave> Ok now try a 10m drop test :D
[22:10] <DDave> Then proceed to shoot it to see how it handles a bullet
[22:10] <DDave> :D
[22:10] <IT_Sean> it would probably survive that
[22:10] <IT_Sean> depending on what it landed on, and how
[22:10] <BenO> DDave, IT_Sean it would be interesting to see what its terminal velocity was

[22:45] <BenO> But ALSA - there's a little work to be done yet
[22:45] <BenO> sorry - *possible*
[22:45] <BenO> cperrin88, I misread
[22:45] <ShiftPlusOne> OneFix_Work, what if I had to apply a patch or modify the makefile?
[22:45] <BenO> cperrin88, You can get sound out, just not via alsa atm
[22:46] <OneFix_Work> ShiftPlusOne: Is the patch available somewhere else?
[22:46] <cperrin88> BenO: how?
[22:46] <OneFix_Work> ShiftPlusOne: Like in the projects main repository?
[22:46] <ShiftPlusOne> OneFix_Work, nope
[22:46] <BenO> Directly - see /opt/vc/src/hello_pi/hello_audio for code
[22:46] <OneFix_Work> ShiftPlusOne: Then, you need to submit the patch to the repository or make a source inary

[22:47] <ShiftPlusOne> OneFix_Work, alright, thanks
[22:47] <OneFix_Work> ShiftPlusOne: It's always smartest to do that anyhow

[22:51] <BenO> cperrin88, my hunch would be that it is at the same state as the debian img
[22:51] <BenO> cperrin88, xbmc works because they are using the h/w directly, without ALSA/etc in the way

[22:57] <ShiftPlusOne> yeah I've seen that
[22:57] <ShiftPlusOne> don't remember what was wrong with it
[22:57] * IT_Sean (~IT_Sean@applefritter/IRCStaff/UltimateMacUser1) has left #raspberrypi
[22:57] <OneFix_Work> ShiftPlusOne: Qemu 1.0.1 is not ancient
[22:57] <cperrin88> BenO: I'm sorry if it seems like I'm just asking and not thinking but I'M googling very much ... I just can't find info on how to set it up on the debian image ..... is it possile or do I need the raspbmc ... that is what I jsut can't find ... but I might just serch on
[22:58] * UndeadLord (~UndeadLor@ Quit ()
[22:58] <ShiftPlusOne> yeah I know, but there was some reason I didn't just nick those
[22:58] <BenO> cperrin88, If you want to run the xbmc distro, you need to get an image from them, put it on the SD in much the same way you did for the debian image and boot with that instead
[22:59] <BenO> cperrin88, it's not a project that I've been keeping tabs on aside from the basics, so I am not sure what sort of release they are putting out yet
[23:01] <OneFix_Work> That reminds me, is anyone going to run an "unofficial" repository for Debian "squeeze"?
[23:01] <BenO> When you say 'unofficial'?
[23:01] <chronofast> that's not a bad idea
[23:01] * NIN101 (~NIN@ Quit (Quit: NIN101)
[23:01] <ShiftPlusOne> OneFix_Work, oh that's right, I saw "-Medium contains also ARM, PPC and usually SPARC virtual machines." and "Qemu-0.15.1-windows-Medium.zip" and assumed the other packages were 'lite'. Though looking at the file size now, I think they are probably full builds
[23:02] <chronofast> makes me think of hexxeh's hardfloat recompiles
[23:02] <OneFix_Work> BenO: Like something on launchpad with pre-compiled packages for the rPi
[23:02] <BenO> OneFix_Work, Oh I see :)
[23:03] <chronofast> it's all the same hardware, it should be a lot easier to set it up

[23:07] <Hexxeh> this is making me want to try doing silly things :P
[23:08] <BenO> Hexxeh, go on :)
[23:09] <Hexxeh> well
[23:10] <Hexxeh> folks are testing stuff for rpi using qemu
[23:10] <Hexxeh> but what about qemu on a rpi? :P
[23:10] <Hexxeh> obviously it'd be beyond painfully slow, and basically just "because you can"
[23:10] * Kostic (~Kostic@net208-0-245-109.mbb.telenor.rs) Quit (Quit: Ex-Chat)
[23:10] <SpeedEvil> Hexxeh: yes, it works
[23:10] <SpeedEvil> Hexxeh: peoplel have booted windows 95 on the n900, which is of a similar HW class
[23:10] <BenO> Hexxeh, change the boot params and you might just be able to boot a 486! ;)
[23:11] <ShiftPlusOne> Hexxeh, yeah, a guy was using qemu to emulate a pi and then within that, qemu running windows xp
[23:11] <ShiftPlusOne> and by running I mean taking several days just to boot
[23:11] <Hexxeh> that's not quite the same
[23:12] <Hexxeh> qemu has more power than a pi
[23:12] <Hexxeh> if you're on a reasonably powerful desktop

[23:12] <ShiftPlusOne> not a performance comparison
[23:12] <ShiftPlusOne> just saying people do silly things
[23:13] <SpeedEvil> Hexxeh: I'm not sure that's actually true
[23:13] <SpeedEvil> Even on a fast desktop, qemu can be rather slow.
[23:13] <ShiftPlusOne> SpeedEvil, neither (for the ARM target anyway)
[23:13] <SpeedEvil> Of course if you have benchmarks

[23:29] <haltdef_> easier to leave the kernel on the sd and just pass it root=/dev/sdaX I'd imagine

[23:29] <Hexxeh> that's what i mean
[23:29] <Hexxeh> when i tried it, it didn't work
[23:30] <Hexxeh> hung waiting for root device
[23:30] <Hexxeh> it'd be immensely useful if it worked for me
[23:30] <haltdef_> hung?
[23:30] <Hexxeh> never finds the root device
[23:30] <haltdef_> crashed or just waited indefinitely?
[23:30] <Hexxeh> at the moment i have to kludge an mbr sd card image together
[23:30] <Hexxeh> it'd be great if i could just chainload from an sd card to my gpt formatted usb stick
[23:30] <M0RBD> Hexxeh: does it detect the usb stick?
[23:31] <Hexxeh> yes, but it doesn't show it as sda
[23:31] <Hexxeh> well, it does if you plug it in once something like debian has finished booting
[23:31] * Tachyon` (hideki@cpc1-york2-0-0-cust905.7-1.cable.virginmedia.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[23:32] <haltdef_> does the debian image do funky stuff with initrds?
[23:32] <Hexxeh> iirc no
[23:32] <haltdef_> when I got this all working on the pandaboard it just .. worked
[23:32] <ShiftPlusOne> OneFix_Work, that's for making me double check, that build seems to have everything. That'll save me a few hours. =D
[23:32] <Hexxeh> ahh
[23:32] <Hexxeh> i know why
[23:32] <haltdef_> as long as usb support was enabled and I passed "rootwait" to the kernel it just booted when sda1 appeared
[23:32] <Hexxeh> kernel/drivers/usb/storage/uas.ko
[23:33] <Hexxeh> a driver the usb stick needs is compiled as a module
[23:33] <Hexxeh> that's a pain
[23:33] <haltdef_> aha

[23:48] <BenO> :( audio out is very crackly with alsa+ogg123 which is the simplest player I can think of that plays thru alsa, but doesn't hang like mplayer, mpd, etc
[23:48] <ReggieUK> did you try alsaplayer?
[23:49] <ReggieUK> can you adjust buffers and stuff on it?

[23:51] <BenO> ReggieUK, The ALSA driver is still very alpha and has bugs - just trying to nail down one now

[23:53] <ReggieUK> sod all
[23:53] <fakker> :)

[23:53] <ReggieUK> but I have futzed with a couple of arm systems with crappy audio drivers
