[0:00] <SpeedEvil> BenO cperrin88: you will almost certainly find that -J 2 or 3 is faster than single-threaded
[0:01] <cperrin88> I will try ... I have a 4 core HT machine ... maybe -j 4 ?

[0:04] * Ult_Ubuntu is now known as IT_Sean
[0:04] <SpeedEvil> ah
[0:04] <SpeedEvil> Fair enough
[0:05] <cperrin88> the only thing that is in question is how I turn on the NFS support
[0:06] * IT_Sean wants a raspi, now that other people have them
[0:07] <cperrin88> IT_Sean: I won't give you mine :D
[0:08] <IT_Sean> :(

[0:23] <smw> has the raspberrypi been shipped yet?
[0:26] <IT_Sean> Yes.
[0:26] <IT_Sean> It has.
[0:26] <IT_Sean> Some people even have them.
[0:26] <smw> IT_Sean, yeah, just saw the blog
[0:27] <IT_Sean> why? you still waiting for yours?
[0:27] <smw> nah, now I am willing to order one :-P
[0:27] * IT_Sean rolls his eyes
[0:27] <IT_Sean> If you order now, you should get it by the year 2031
[0:27] <smw> lol
[0:27] <dipstick> !!!!
[0:27] * IT_Sean wasn't joking.
[0:27] <dipstick> july as the soon-est
[0:28] <smw> how long before ordering it means a week until you have one? lol
[0:29] <IT_Sean> The year 2031
[0:29] <IT_Sean> The waitlist is several hundred thousand people long.
[0:29] <dipstick> loooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooong time
[0:30] * DDave (~DDave@unaffiliated/ddave) Quit (Ping timeout: 260 seconds)
[0:31] <Hydrazine> 350.000 iirc
[0:31] <dipstick> lucky me, I ordered within a few days of release. :D
[0:31] * IT_Sean hasn't ordered yet. :/
[0:31] <smw> well, e14 claims they will have it done by june or july
[0:32] <dipstick> I've already waited a month and half for all the compliance shit, I can handle another month or two.
[0:33] <smw> I mean that current orders will be done in june
[0:33] <smw> hopefully at that point it will take one more production run to get surplus
[0:34] <smw> (ie stock)
[0:34] <dipstick> amazing how one tiny little linux computer can be so frakkin popular.
[0:34] * hamitron (~hamitron@just.screw-the.eu) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:34] <IT_Sean> And 18% of those buyers have no idea what it can / cannot do, and will be horribly disapointed.
[0:34] * IT_Sean sighs
[0:34] <smw> dipstick, although it is out of my pricerange. I want http://www.wikispeed.com/ to become popular
[0:35] <IT_Sean> That is **ck ugly
[0:35] * Syliss (~Syliss@ has joined #raspberrypi
[0:35] <smw> IT_Sean, who cares?
[0:36] <IT_Sean> I do.
[0:36] <IT_Sean> Life is too short to drive a shit car.
[0:36] <dipstick> heh, mine has more colors :P
[0:36] <cperrin88> Somebody an Idea wich option I have to set to compile the kernel with NFS server support?
[0:36] <smw> IT_Sean, they have better bodies ;-)
[0:37] <smw> IT_Sean, and a $25,000 car with 100MPG seems to me like a prank...
[0:37] <smw> but it is in popular mechanics and stuff...
[0:37] <dipstick> the next gen won't need such a limited power source.
[0:37] <smw> apparently they are selling the prototypes. Only 9 left
[0:38] * IT_Sean will stick with his mildly inefficient, but fun as hell, 80s brick rocket.
[0:38] <smw> dipstick, what power source is not limited?
[0:38] <smw> dipstick, so will they instead run on coal?
[0:38] <smw> (burned at the power plant)
[0:39] * dipstick will stick to his 90's model truck
[0:39] <smw> lol
[0:39] <dipstick> smw: solar, geothermal, wind
[0:39] <smw> dipstick, do you know if those have actually been successful yet?
[0:39] <smw> lol
[0:39] <dipstick> someone needs to invent a lava power generator.
[0:40] <smw> you would need to drill deep
[0:40] <dipstick> nah, just find a volcano
[0:40] <smw> why not build more nuclear plants
[0:41] <smw> dipstick, truthfully, I just don't think we have the technology to replace oil. Or that we will have it anytime in the near future
[0:42] * wcchandler is late to the punch bowl
[0:42] <wcchandler> nice schematics up
[0:42] <wcchandler> might be useful for somebody :)
[0:44] * SpeedEvil wants a parts kit.
[0:44] <dipstick> ooooh
[0:44] <SpeedEvil> (just the bcm* and the POP)
[0:45] * drewh (459eab10@gateway/web/freenode/ip. has joined #raspberrypi
[0:45] <dipstick> ooh, there's a 2.5v rail?
[0:45] <IT_Sean> No parts kits. sorry.
[0:45] <jamesglanville> BenO: http://i.imgur.com/MWJf8.jpg http://i.imgur.com/r9lls.jpg :D
[0:48] <jamesglanville> oops http://i.imgur.com/r9IlS.jpg is the second one
[0:48] <Hydrazine> nice
[0:49] <dipstick> lots of little caps in the design
[0:49] <BenO> jamesglanville, Nicely done :)
[0:49] <BenO> Is that the translucent PLA? looks quite sparkly with the flash :)
[0:50] <jamesglanville> yeah, it's arctic blue from faberdashery
[0:51] * lars_t_h (~lars_t_h@002129057010.mbb.telenor.dk) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:52] <drewh> have you guys seen what this dude is doing? http://www.raspberrypi.org/forum/projects-and-collaboration-general/debian-hard-float-armhf-for-rpi/page-10
[0:53] <BenO> Nice - I've only got some blue and black abs at home
[0:53] <drewh> insane, he's basically doing the whole hardfloat distro himself
[0:53] <drewh> between that and hexxeh's USB boot i bet we'll increase the performance of pi for 2x-3x at least
[0:54] <BenO> drewh, I think just booting from USB boosted speed by that much, IIRC! :)
[0:54] <drewh> haha yes true!
[0:54] <drewh> and then anything floating point will benefit from real FPU
[0:55] <drewh> by the time i get a pi it'll actually be able to do the things i want :)
[0:55] * IT_Sean (~IT_Sean@applefritter/IRCStaff/UltimateMacUser1) Quit (Quit: Linkinus - http://linkinus.com)
[0:56] <BenO> Doing a whole debian distro build though - that's super cool and super mental ;)
[0:57] * wry (~wry@c-71-205-142-149.hsd1.mi.comcast.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:58] <drewh> haha i know, dude bought his own build cluster
[0:58] <drewh> once he gets a repo online i'm gonna donate some cash to keep the server running, hardfp is really important
[0:58] <Iota> Anyone here got omxplayer working?
[0:59] <BenO> jamesglanville, did your install find any components in the GPU it could drive?
[0:59] <BenO> (OMX I mean)
[0:59] <drewh> does omxplayer use openmax for audio too?
[0:59] <drewh> or are we relying on ALSA for everything... :-(
[1:00] <BenO> omxplayer would likely just pipe directly to the GPU, as long as it found suitable media hardware to interface to
[1:00] * MrException (1847860f@gateway/web/freenode/ip. Quit (Quit: Page closed)
[1:01] <jamesglanville> BenO: nah it wanted to link against an apparently x86 only thing
[1:01] <BenO> It is hardware-dependant, so that was a possibility
[1:01] <BenO> :( sucks
[1:01] <drewh> i don't suppose anyone has tried to compile xbmc yet
[1:01] <BenO> Now I'll have to go back to kicking ALSA around
[1:02] <Iota> I just read on reddit that Hexxeh has been trying to compile xbmc for the last couple of days.
[1:02] <Iota> lol.
[1:02] <BenO> Have xbmc put out a temporary release
[1:02] <BenO> ?
[1:02] <Hexxeh> Iota: you were misinformed
[1:02] <Iota> http://www.reddit.com/r/raspberry_pi/comments/shpjt/rasberry_pi_1080p_video_playback/c4ebrnj
[1:02] <Iota> Lol.
[1:02] <Iota> No idea who that was.
[1:03] <drewh> i don't think so no
[1:03] <drewh> i'm pretty sure no one has binaries for xbmc
[1:03] * MystX (~MystX@49-50-247-177.a.hd.net.nz) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:03] <drewh> @Iota: that was me :)
[1:03] <drewh> how to i tag someone in irc
[1:03] <hamitron> give them a few months of having everyone working on it at least? ;)
[1:03] <Iota> Ah cool, hey drewh
[1:03] * Iota adds to friends.
[1:03] <drewh> how do i mention someone?
[1:04] <drewh> i'm using the irc webclient
[1:04] <Iota> You just say their name.
[1:04] <drewh> oh. ok.
[1:04] <MystX> just type their name
[1:04] <drewh> thanks!
[1:04] <MystX> Yeah that^^

[1:04] <namfonos> im getting kernel panic not syncing vfs unable to mount root fs on unknown block
[1:04] <drewh> it's just funny that there are hundreds of the things out there and everyone has been holding their breath to hear about stuff
[1:05] <drewh> and info has been trickling in
[1:05] <namfonos> i've tried 3 different sd cards
[1:05] <namfonos> i loaded arch and debian on all of them
[1:05] <drewh> hmm
[1:05] <aristidesfl1> what's the best store to order a board for someone living in Portugal?
[1:05] <drewh> namfonos: when are you getting the kp?
[1:06] <namfonos> for arch the sd card that i currently have going right now it is the first and only line
[1:06] <namfonos> immediatly
[1:06] <drewh> aristidesfl1: RS and Farnell are both... well, no one is really great right now but might as well try both
[1:06] <namfonos> for debian it scrolls through a whole bunch of info and then in a while it kp's
[1:06] <namfonos> and i have an sd card that is on the list
[1:06] <cperrin88> I have compiled the kernel with NFSD support, what now? What do I need to put on the SD Card?
[1:07] <namfonos> its the sandisk sdhc gb
[1:07] <namfonos> err 8GB
[1:08] <namfonos> not sure which class i don't see that anywhere
[1:08] <BenO> You might have a 4 wrapped in a mostly complete circle - a C
[1:08] <namfonos> for the arch install i had it look like it was abot to load up
[1:09] <namfonos> it had the blue arch letters and said arch linux
[1:09] <namfonos> the way a normal arch startup begins
[1:10] <namfonos> oh i see its a back trace its scrolling through before a kernel panic
[1:10] <namfonos> then kp not syncing: fatal exception in terrupt
[1:11] <namfonos> interrupt*
[1:11] <cperrin88> namfonos: I know that
[1:11] <cperrin88> It's a feature :D

[1:12] <aristidesfl1> drewh: thanks
[1:12] <aristidesfl1> will the final version, with enclosure, cost the same?
[1:12] <drewh> hrmmm is anyone compiling xbmc then? i guess i was misinformed
[1:13] <drewh> *sigh*
[1:15] <tpresence> I guess I will wait for raspbmc...the current os's are too early to be of much use for AV
[1:16] <drewh> truth. TBH i'd be happy just having another little linux box hanging around
[1:16] <drewh> sometimes VMs just aren't as good

[1:32] <BenO> cperrin88, I added a section to the end of the wiki page, right at the end
[1:32] <BenO> It was Hexxeh who told me the secret :)
[1:33] <cperrin88> oh
[1:33] <cperrin88> now I see
[1:33] <cperrin88> You think anyone might be interested in a merge with my fork with enabled NFSD ?
[1:33] <BenO> It's probably worth adding some preamble to tell people reading that page what to do overall
[1:34] <BenO> cperrin88, did you have to change any code to get the module to compile, or was it a kernel option you turned on?
[1:35] <cperrin88> just an option
[1:35] <cperrin88> or more a few
[1:36] <BenO> It's worth documenting definitely, so that other people can follow it :)
[1:38] <cperrin88> you have to add
[1:38] <cperrin88> CONFIG_NFSD=y
[1:38] <cperrin88> CONFIG_NFSD_V2_ACL=y

[1:58] <cperrin88> Damn -_-
[1:59] * IT_Sean tosses cperrin88 a fresh raspi
[1:59] <cperrin88> Thanks :)

[1:59] <BenO> You're just mad about releasing the voodoo in that encryption box earlier ;)
[2:00] <IT_Sean> Yeah.
[2:00] <IT_Sean> I crispified that
[2:00] <IT_Sean> Luckily, it just needed a new PSU board.
[2:00] <IT_Sean> It's now happily purring away on my desk, running automated tests
[2:00] <BenO> Nice :)
[2:01] <IT_Sean> in theory anyway

[2:21] <[deXter]> Can it run Crysis?!

[2:23] <IT_Sean> drewh, it detects the HDMI output. if no HDMI screen is present, it fails over to the composite.
[2:24] <drewh> IT_Sean: thanks! good to know, i don't have an HDMI or DVI compatible tv or monitior :)
[2:24] <CcSsNET> [deXter]: indeed the general public is amusing
[2:24] <drewh> 2x identical vga monitors and an old tv, don't really want to upgrade anything

[2:24] * Mez (~mez@ubuntu/member/mez) has joined #raspberrypi
[2:25] <IT_Sean> drewh, you'll be fine. It'll see that there is no HDMI display, and output to composite. The detection is performed at pre-boot, so, you cannot hot swap
[2:25] * m0spf (~steve@2001:ba8:1f1:f12e::2) has joined #raspberrypi
[2:26] <drewh> great! that's good to know

[2:26] <ReggieUK> that's a pity that you can't enable both
[2:26] <drewh> i wonder if it's possible to force an output refresh
[2:27] <IT_Sean> I don't believe it is.
[2:27] <IT_Sean> Not without rebooting, anyway

[2:34] <namfonos> what do i need in terms of video drivers?
[2:34] <namfonos> for arch?
[2:36] <drewh> anyone know how the audio is on the jack?
[2:36] <drewh> is it usable for TV?
[2:39] <IT_Sean> Yes, with the right cable
[2:39] <IT_Sean> Audio is output via HDMI or a headphone jack

[2:45] <BenO> kallisti5, kernel boot spits out the UART at 115200 IIRC
[2:46] <kallisti5> BenO: looking for more bootloader output (eg, the firmware binaries that kick off the kernel)
[2:46] <BenO> kallisti5, That's done by the gpu - I don't think that outputs anything
[2:47] <kallisti5> bah. Trying to troubleshoot a port and having some early feedback would of been nice
[2:48] <BenO> Yeah :( sorry - gpu has a really dumb bootloader that knows just enough to pull in the start.elf which kickstarts the rest off
[2:48] <kallisti5> BenO: hmm, so nothing from start.elf either?
[2:48] <kallisti5> (output wise)
[2:48] <BenO> I wasn't able to pull anything from serial, until it booted the kernel proper

[2:48] <kallisti5> k
[2:49] <kallisti5> I noticed this strange script to append 32k to the kernel image
[2:49] <kallisti5> any thoughts on what that is?
[2:49] <BenO> tools/mkimage
[2:49] <BenO> ?
[2:49] <kallisti5> https://github.com/raspberrypi/tools/tree/master/mkimage to be exact
[2:49] <kallisti5> yeah
[2:50] <BenO> yep - I haven't looked into what that is yet :)
[2:50] <BenO> Required though to turn an uncompressed kernel into something the start.elf can boot up
[2:50] <kallisti5> ah. ok
[2:51] <BenO> eg normal linux "Image" + that header -> "kernel.img"
[2:51] <BenO> well, you've seen the script, it does more than that, but that's the jist of it
[2:51] <kallisti5> right. it also adds some hex data... man I wish this stuff was more open
[2:52] <BenO> kallisti5 hell yeah
[2:52] <kallisti5> i mean... we aren't talking about huge amounts of code here
[2:53] <kallisti5> oh well.. I booted Arch on my Pi... it runs pretty quick :D
[2:53] <BenO> kallisti5, tried recompiling to add in support for rootfs on USB?
[2:53] <blue_k> Has anyone run ARMedSlack on a Pi?
[2:54] <BenO> or does arch come with that on board?
[2:54] <kallisti5> The arch image also ships with the vll's on the boot partition where the debian image doesn't
[2:54] <kallisti5> BenO: nah... downloaded sd card image
[2:55] <BenO> kallisti5, the Pi felt faster than I anticipated too - was expecting it to crawl
[2:55] <BenO> :)
[2:55] <Tachyon`> I imagine it'll nip along quite nicely with the root fs on usb stick
[2:56] <BenO> yep :)
[2:56] <drewh> i've heard of debian doing that, will arch?
[2:56] <drewh> rootfs on usbi mean
[2:57] <Tachyon`> I think anything can, you just adjust the kernel boot parameters accordingly
[2:57] <kallisti5> no idea... I don't see why not.. as long as the kernel has usb support built in
[2:57] <kallisti5> then yah... point cmdline.txt to it
[2:57] <BenO> kernel needs usb storage and uas built into it, not as modules and then you are pretty good to go
[2:57] <drewh> yeah i guess usb support is the kicker
[2:57] <BenO> oh and at least ext4/fat built in too
[2:57] <drewh> right

[2:58] <Tachyon`> well, fs is unimportant, if it's designed to boot an FS from SD it'll boot the same one from USB
[2:58] <BenO> mostly I think - the debian kernel was built with uas as a module though
[2:58] <Tachyon`> ext2 is faster for sticks but with the reliability cost
[2:58] <Tachyon`> best to mount with noatime etc. too
[2:58] <Tachyon`> to reduce small writes

[13:52] <cperrin88> Hi passstab
[13:52] <Caver> aha

[14:41] <Veryevil> I am right in thinking that is a X driver for HW Accel?

[14:42] <Caver> thats a standard no accelerated framebuffer source

[14:45] <Caver> ok ok I get the point
[14:45] <Caver> *I* though it was interesting
[14:45] <vgrade> Caver, it is/was
[14:46] <shirro> it is great for a full screen single app thing like a media center or a game console. To have multiple apps compositing windows on the same screen you really need ti hooked into X or wait for Wayland.
[14:47] <shirro> Caver: the Qt thing is what sparked my interest. It is totally interesting. Just kind of old.

[16:00] <Hexxeh> ah
[16:00] <BenO> Lol - he's using Dreamhost VPS and trying to use 1 week of their free service ;)
[16:00] <shirro> He built a bootstrap on armv7 then ran a script (using readelf) to find where armv7 static libs had poluted things. Then rebuilt
[16:01] <shirro> He can't have slept for a few weeks.
[16:02] <M0RBD> heh

[16:18] <BenO> hamradio app IIRC
[16:18] <Iota> OOoo nice.
[16:18] <Caver> nice
[16:18] <BenO> "A digital modem for radio amateurs" according to goog
[16:18] <BenO> nice :)
[16:19] <Caver> I bought one of the very cheap SDR hardware.slashdot.org/story/12/03/31/1914217/software-defined-radio-for-11 type usb sticks
[16:19] <BenO> We're gonna need that when everyone gets booted off the net for suspected piracy ;)
[16:19] <Caver> but the pi arriving the next day, means I've not actually done anythign about it!
[16:20] <OY1R> yes it's for hamradio digital modes
[16:20] <OY1R> and it has a logger aswell and if if could run on the pi i'd get one asap.
[16:20] <Caver> :)
[16:21] <Caver> I'd imagine it ought to work, as all the source is there
[16:21] <OY1R> would be nice with the pi and my ft-817 in a smallish case, for portable operation
[16:21] <BenO> It should do - as long as the hw can get the current it needs from the pi or a well plug, it should work fine
[16:21] <M0RBD> OY1R: fldigi is in the debian port
[16:22] <M0RBD> I ran it on my N900, albeit you will need a USB stick on the PI as there is no sound in.
[16:22] <OY1R> M0GHY1, indeed
[16:22] <M0RBD> agn agn
[16:23] <BenO> M0RBD, OY1R can I test it with a random usb soundcard then?
[16:23] <OY1R> yea
[16:23] <M0RBD> BenO: yeah should'nt be an issue... as long its uses alsa/oss
[16:23] <BenO> (which I have. I don't have any suitable signal pickup gear though)
[16:23] <M0RBD> I usually use alsa/portaudio
[16:24] <BenO> I'll try to find mine then :)

[16:27] <piless> has openelec been released yet?

[16:32] <Anppa> maybe standard def mpeg2 could be handled unaccelerate
[16:32] <Anppa> +d
[16:32] <BenO> afief, okay - well, the direct hw connection is there, it's just that the plumbing to some of the normal linux subsystems need a bit of work
[16:32] <piless> "the GPU can hardware decode H264, MPEG1/2/4, VC1, AVS, MJPG at 1080p30. It can software (but still vector accelerated) decode VP6, VP7, VP8, RV, Theora, WMV9 at DVD resolutions. We are restricted due to licensing what we can support. We should be able to support VP8, MJPG and Theora, as I believe they are license free."
[16:32] <PiOfCube> Wrong window
[16:32] <piless> But they only own the licenses for mpeg4 and h264
[16:32] <BenO> afief, I think the openelec/xbmc guys are just using the hw, so they should be the first group with something that just works

[18:02] <BenO> yep
[18:02] <BenO> Horrible building ;) but a nice park beside it
[18:04] <BenO> Annnyway, probably should go back on topic - has anyone looked at FB acceleration yet?
[18:04] <Matt> BenO: hot topic
[18:05] <friggle> BenO: don't think anyone has committed to trying to use the dma engines for an xorg driver
[18:05] <friggle> BenO: various people looking at enabling GLES backends for Gtk/Qt, plus DirectFB support as an alternative
[18:05] <ReggieUK> BenO, for what purpose?
[18:05] <ReggieUK> Personally I'd like to see a less is more approach
[18:05] <ReggieUK> I don't necessarily need X etc.
[18:06] <friggle> BenO: Dom posted the fb kernel driver that supported DMA engines http://pastebin.com/A0rvasgN
[18:06] <friggle> BenO: but basically no application on earth calls those functions
[18:06] <friggle> DJWillis said he might take a look at some optimised assembly reoutines or using the DMA engines in an xorg-fbdev fork
[18:06] <ReggieUK> apart from fbset?
[18:07] <friggle> ReggieUK: I mean the blitting functions etc
[18:07] <BenO> friggle, Cool - I think that GLES bkend might be quite interesting to see but I think that the xorg route has to be followed really :(
[18:08] <ReggieUK> just thinking mplayer etc. might play nicer with an fb driver and no X etc. cluttering things up and wasting processes?
[18:09] <Hexxeh> has anyone tried to use that debian armhf repo?
[18:09] <Hexxeh> getting errors saying the Packages file is corrupt
[18:10] <BenO> ReggieUK, as a player, sure - but I hope that this bit of kit would be nice to hand to kids to program on - scratch, SDL, even Flixel would benefit hugely from blitting/shared mem routines

[18:11] <BenO> :( someone needs to give the guy more of whatever he's using to stay awake
[18:12] <BenO> He may have been up for 72 hrs straight, but fix it! ;)
[18:12] <ReggieUK> BenO, oh sure, I appreciate that too, just thinking out loud for projects where every last cycle is important and given it's an embedded device it would be nice for 'the kids' to know that sometimes you don't have all of the shiny pretty stuff, you have to build from the ground up
[18:13] <ReggieUK> even commercial products that use linux don't necessarily have X but are still very feature rich (or could be if the mfrs put the extra effort in)
[18:14] <cjbaird> I just realized something: I don't think I've seen anyone using an RPi with /wireless/ HID usb devices. There'll certainly be less cable pain with a wireless keyboard and mouse...
[18:14] <ReggieUK> took leapfrog 3 years to finally push out a real alsa driver
[18:14] <Hexxeh> cjbaird: I do
[18:15] <cjbaird> H: but have you posted any photos to impress people? :)
[18:15] <Hexxeh> I'll take one now, sec.
[18:15] <ReggieUK> still using a FB driver and not much else (apart from some gles and even that I'm not sure if they use it in their stuff)
[18:15] <ReggieUK> I was thinking that bluetooth adapter might be a really good use of resources on a pi
[18:16] <cjbaird> That's true..

[18:17] <BenO> ReggieUK, I think at the moment, this is a cool thing to use to run through GLES and FB tutorials and the like
[18:17] <ReggieUK> upto 7 devices connected to a bluetooth dongle I believe
[18:17] <BenO> it's very instructive to show people that they can poke (or should that be POKE) the buffer memory :)

[18:18] <cjbaird> And iirc, you'll only need the one bluetooth receiver for any number of bluetooth devices, (unlike with needing a seperate usb dongle for the longtech keyboard, mouse, ..)
[18:18] <Hexxeh> the problem with bluetooth is pairing
[18:18] <ReggieUK> is anyone aware of this website?
[18:18] <traeak> with a model 'a' i would seriously consider going full bootoof
[18:18] <ReggieUK> http://www.lazyfoo.net/SDL_tutorials/
[18:18] <Hexxeh> that's why i just went for a keyboard/mouse that shared a receiver
[18:18] <traeak> and using bootoof for network as well
[18:18] <ReggieUK> I've been messing with bluetooth for a while now
[18:18] <ReggieUK> it's been mostly stable
[18:19] <zgreg> ReggieUK: maybe pygame is a better environment for playing around
[18:19] <ReggieUK> there are odd things like wiimotes but that's not bluetooth that's the wiimote side of things
[18:19] <cjbaird> Power-over-Ethernet to maybe eliminate the microusb power port...
[18:19] <Hexxeh> cjbaird: Warning, huge image: http://cl.ly/Fyw8
[18:19] <traeak> ReggieUK: can you use bootoof at hi speed at the same time as using a slow device ?
[18:19] <ReggieUK> zgreg, probably, again though, it doesn't hurt to have different sources for information
[18:20] <ReggieUK> bootoof?
[18:20] <Hexxeh> bluetooth :P
[18:20] <ReggieUK> ha :D
[18:20] <ReggieUK> sorry I should've seen that
[18:20] <BenO> zgreg, ReggieUK pygame is a great starter, but I think the build available on the debian img is ancient. There are wiki'd steps to getting a new version on it
[18:20] <ReggieUK> I read it as boot oof
[18:20] <cjbaird> H: that's what I was originally thinking..
[18:20] <Hexxeh> the only cables i have are HDMI and power, works good
[18:21] <Hexxeh> that said, i went out of my way to find tiny USB dongles :P
[18:21] <ReggieUK> traeak, I have no idea
[18:21] <BenO> ReggieUK, The lazyfoo tutorials are good :) I think NeHe also ported (or had ported) his tutorials to GLES too
[18:21] <Hexxeh> keyboard and mouse with the dongle were like ??11, wifi dongle was ??7
[18:21] <zgreg> NeHe? oh my NeHe's opengl tutorials are really bad :D
[18:21] <ReggieUK> you can also setup a bridged network with bluetooth
[18:21] <zgreg> they're bad, and really really outdated
[18:22] * Soul_Est (~nolanhayn@ has joined #raspberrypi
[18:22] <BenO> zgreg, that why I said "ported" :)
[18:22] <traeak> ReggieUK: i think that's bluetooth v2.0 + EDR
[18:22] <cjbaird> An intention here is to go the X Terminal client route, so I'll be stucking with wired networking. :)
[18:22] <ReggieUK> not saying it's going to get fast speeds but we're talking about learning here and projects that require handful of bytes over tcp/ip would be ideally suited to a cheap blueooth network
[18:22] * hamitron (~hamitron@just.screw-the.eu) has joined #raspberrypi
[18:23] <Hexxeh> It's surprising how much the RPi can keep up in terms of UI when you're not using that slow framebuffer
[18:23] <mjr> traeak, no, bt networking can be done with 1.x. Slow, of course, as ReggieUK said.
[18:23] <traeak> http://whatis.techtarget.com/definition/bluetooth-2-0-edr.html
[18:23] <Hexxeh> There's a guy from Thailand using one of my Pi's remotely, I had a quick look at his VNC session and it was pretty speedy
[18:23] <ReggieUK> at some point when I get a pi I'll look at getting gmenu2x running on the pi
[18:23] <mjr> and wlan will probably be easier to set up too
[18:23] <BenO> Hexxeh, I've been using X forwarding and that's been pretty nice :)
[18:24] <zgreg> BenO: do you mean http://nehe.gamedev.net/tutorial/ios_lesson_02__first_triangle/50001/?
[18:24] <traeak> the EDR part is a special high speed mode of bluetooth specifically designed for networking
[18:24] <cjbaird> Hmm.. stereo audio port ... that could be connected up to a oscilloscope in X-Y mode...
[18:24] <zgreg> there are much better tutorials for that on the net
[18:24] <traeak> of course using bt3 + HS would probably be preferable
[18:24] <traeak> just curious is anyone has screwed with these
[18:24] <mjr> traeak, yeah, sure it's nice to _have_ but not mandatory ;)
[18:24] <BenO> zgreg, I think it would be worth drawing up a list of good tutorial sites on the wiki for newbs
[18:25] <traeak> mjr: just curious if it even *works* and can work simultaneously with a mouse/keyboard/etc
[18:25] <mjr> I did have a bluetooth network at one time between my openmoko gta01 and my desktop for testing
[18:25] <zgreg> http://www.arcsynthesis.org/gltut/index.html is not specific to opengl es, but at least it does teach more than the absolute basics and it also tells a lot about the concepts behind opengl
[18:25] <mjr> even ran openoffice over it through X for shits and giggles, it wasn't as bad as you might think ;)
[18:25] <BenO> zgreg, sweet, thanks :)
[18:25] <traeak> bt3 + HS supposedly does 24MB/s
[18:25] <mjr> and that was bluetooth 1.x,
[18:25] <traeak> Mbit i mean

[18:26] <traeak> what fun
[18:26] <mjr> that +HS bit uses wifi for data transfer so it's not "just" bluetooth anymore
[18:27] <traeak> mjr: but still it allows a single USB port to do almost everything
[18:27] <ReggieUK> that's my point about bluetooth being very useful with a pi
[18:27] <mjr> ah, yes, well. I'm not actually sure how that works, if they sell standalone dongles for that
[18:27] <mjr> but sure
[18:28] <traeak> looks like under 3USD for one of those dongles at dealextreme
[18:28] <traeak> i mean 6USD

[18:30] <ReggieUK> he no worries :)
[18:30] <mjr> I wouldn't actually be sure if those dongles actually implement the HS part or if they just market it as "compliant" for the driver being able to hand off the transfer to a separate piece of wifi equipment. Just to be cynical.
[18:30] * DDave (~DDave@unaffiliated/ddave) Quit (Ping timeout: 246 seconds)
[18:30] <zgreg> do these BT 3.0+HS dongles include an actual wifi radio?
[18:30] <mjr> zgreg, semi-echo
[18:30] <zgreg> I can't imagine that for < 6 USD
[18:30] <mjr> yeah
[18:30] <traeak> might be a good use for a pogoplug...bluetooth 3.0+HS network router
[18:31] <ReggieUK> there are some of the cheap devices out there, like prolific based usb to serial adapters on ebay, just missing an eeprom to have them wake up with default com ports etc.
[18:31] <mjr> and frankly, if they _had_ the wifi radio, they'd probably expose that as well because hey, it's a big selling point
[18:31] <zgreg> maybe the HS part is implemented in drivers only and requires a wifi device on the host, or something like that
[18:31] <mjr> expose and advertise
[18:31] <mjr> zgreg, indeed that's my guess

[18:36] <mjr> traeak, yeah that probably only does the bt signaling side. Which, I should say, is sufficient for many uses, but obviously will require a bt access point for network access.
[18:37] <zgreg> why would you want to use bluetooth for high-speed networking anyway?
[18:37] <traeak> mjr: checking to see if my pogoplug has packages for this
[18:37] <zgreg> just use wifi
[18:37] <traeak> zgreg: model 'a'
[18:38] <zgreg> well, use one of those combo bt+wifi adapters, then! :)
[18:38] <mjr> You don't really want to. Just pointing out that you can make do with it if you're cheap but have a handy place to put another bt adapter ;]
[18:39] <traeak> at that point something like a mele a1000 ends up cheaper than an rpi
[18:41] <mjr> doesn't seem to have wifi or bluetooth on board either ;]
[18:42] <mjr> but hey, it's an interesting box though
[18:42] <traeak> mele a1000 has 802.11
[18:42] <traeak> onboard
[18:42] <traeak> no bluetooth, no
[18:43] <mjr> Hmh. Oh, the dealextreme $100 mele package does say 802.11. The aliexpress $70 thing without remote control and jazz doesn't though. Ah well.
[18:45] <mjr> anyway, it is interesting, not least because it has the allwinner a10 which is somewhat more powerful than the pi, and happens to sport the mali 400 gpu that is being actively reverse-engineered (disclaimers about no usable free driver guarantees apply)

[19:13] <zgreg> cjbaird: heh, funny
[19:13] <cjbaird> Of course, the moment the CE and other trouble was revealed, he was spreading the FUD good and thick within the hour..
[19:13] <Matt> there's nothing technically amazing about the pi
[19:13] <zgreg> cjbaird: got an URL for me?
[19:13] <Matt> it's more everything around the pi that's the value add
[19:13] <zgreg> I'd like to read about that :D
[19:14] <Matt> price, community, etc
[19:14] <traeak> for embedded use the rpi will probably rule for a while
[19:14] <des2> The PI just occupies a unique price/size/power point.
[19:14] <ReggieUK> foundation and price point are the killers for me
[19:14] <Matt> the whole teching thingy
[19:14] <cjbaird> Naturally, when the RPi actually started shipping.... not a peep from his 'latest omg i'm not biased at all Raspberry Pi News' posts...
[19:14] <traeak> it's the mini computer part that will have some competition

[19:14] <cjbaird> Dontronics also currently goes on about 'The latest Arduino Killer' (..that he just happens to plan selling..)
[19:15] <zgreg> Matt: voltage regulation, audio output, SD interface, etc.
[19:15] <Matt> yup
[19:15] <traeak> but yeah for that $70 the mele has sata and 802.11, 3 usb and VGA
[19:16] <zgreg> I don't think it's likely that raspberry pi is an unsustainable business
[19:16] <zgreg> I remember olimex pissing about that
[19:17] <zgreg> that in fact, the foundation is losing money on every pi sold
[19:17] <ReggieUK> broadcom took a small gamble on 10k units, they've undoubtedly got a win here, it's got them massive amounts of direct and indirect good free advertising
[19:17] <traeak> yup and several 100k's of orders
[19:17] <hotwings> whether or not rpi is sustainable has yet to be seen.
[19:17] <ReggieUK> but ultimately teh scene wins too because we get to keep on getting cheap ass dev boards
[19:17] <Matt> yeah

[19:23] <cjbaird> M0RBD: he was actually Australia first spammer back in 1994... He totally didn't give a shit that a lot of us reading aus.electronics were on non-commerical/government/business networks at the time, mostly long-distance $10/MB email-only links..
[19:23] <ReggieUK> funnily enough, some of us have sat here and watched all the complainers and blow-hards with 'killer' boards spout off constantly attacking the pi, so I understand where cjbaird is coming from
[19:23] <hotwings> zgreg - sustainability doesnt only depend on being able to pay the bills. it also has a lot to do with how the business is being run. whether or not the people calling the shots at the foundation will succeed in business has yet to be seen as well

[19:25] <zgreg> hotwings, yes, but I was mostly talking about basic manufacturing costs vs. the 25/35 USD price point
[19:26] <hotwings> ahh gotcha. component costs fluctuate and im not sure how much wiggle room there is in the price point for that
[19:26] <traeak> no reason they have to keep the price fixed is there?

[19:32] * acperkins (~acperkins@pdpc/supporter/student/acperkins) Quit (Quit: leaving)
[19:32] <zgreg> hotwings: well, the point is, some people are shouting that it's simply completely impossible to get down to 35 USD for such a board (one guy from olimex, for instance)
[19:33] <_av500_> hotwings: why?
[19:33] <traeak> zgreg: not if you want reasonable profits i'm sure
[19:33] <zgreg> hotwings: and I say, that's BS, especially if you look at how simplified the design of the board is, and what compromises they made
[19:34] <hotwings> _av500_ - the sheer quantities arent even close. then when you factor in purchase agreements, production agreements, etc. you get a $55 android tablet
[19:35] <hotwings> zgreg - the foundation doesnt even know if their product is sustainable and they have the exact numbers so i dont see how anyone else could know its impossible
[19:36] * capiscuas_ (~capiscuas@ppp-58-8-51-6.revip2.asianet.co.th) Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[19:36] <des2> No one can know if there will be enough interest in the PI to keep producing it a year from now.
[19:36] <des2> 100,000 orders can just be a fad.
[19:36] <_av500_> hotwings: the sheer quantities you need are not that big
[19:36] <des2> Lots of fads die out.
[19:37] <_av500_> and the rpi pcb is dead simple
[19:37] <_av500_> i looked at the schematics today
[19:37] <M0RBD> _av500_: expect chinese copies at $5 :D
[19:37] <_av500_> so 35$ is quite reasonable
[19:38] <_av500_> M0RBD: not quite
[19:38] <des2> The Aduino is about $35, Arduino chinese clones about $18.
[19:38] <des2> Not a lot of room for cheaper clones in the RPi.
[19:38] <des2> I'm expect more $50 clones that are better.
[19:38] <cjbaird> I wouldn't be surprised that Certain People lobby the Government claiming that the foundation is exploiting the charity clause to be 'anti competitive' on the market. ("They're illegally getting the components below cost that other businesses have to pay by claming they're a Charity...")
[19:39] <hotwings> _av500_ - the bigger the component orders, the bigger the discount. its a lot easier for a company with millions in their budget to negotiate a $55 android tablet in large quantities than it is for the foundation to do a $35 rpi in limited quantity single runs
[19:39] <_av500_> you dont need millions
[19:39] <M0RBD> ops I meant 15

[19:40] <hotwings> _av500_ - youre missing the point about why a $55 android tablet and a $35 rpi have thing in common and cant be compared
[19:40] <hotwings> *nothing
[19:40] <_av500_> I know the difference and what they have in common
[19:40] <hotwings> they dont have anything in common.
[19:41] <_av500_> take an android tablet and remove almost anything
[19:41] <_av500_> you end up with PCB and CPU
[19:41] <_av500_> and 2 other chips
[19:41] <_av500_> no case
[19:41] <_av500_> no battery
[19:41] <_av500_> no lcd
[19:41] <hotwings> oh man, you really dont get it do you?
[19:41] <_av500_> yes, I am stupid
[19:42] <hotwings> its not about being stupid or not
[19:42] <_av500_> but again, getting $35 from china for the r-pi is nothing special

[19:45] <traeak> hmmm
[19:46] <hotwings> _av500_ - why do you think you can so easily determine whats possible and what isnt without knowing _anything_ about purchase requirements, purchase agreements, production agreements, the terms of the negotiated pricing, etc etc etc?
[19:46] <traeak> so from the us orders from newark.com or something?

[19:47] <hotwings> zgreg - anyone who thinks they know for certain one way or the other doesnt know what theyre talking about. the only facts we have so far is that the foundation has managed to bring a product to market at advertised price. that proves its possible, at least this time

[19:51] <hotwings> no you dont
[19:51] <_av500_> ok
[19:51] <_av500_> end of discussion
[19:51] <des2> So what's your guess ?
[19:52] <hotwings> [10:48:06] <hotwings> _av500_ - lets remove the guessing.. have you seen all the foundations agreements? do you _know_ all their costs/pricing?
[19:52] <hotwings> [10:48:10] <_av500_> nope
[19:52] <PiOfCube> There are many people now thinking the R-Pi is a Chinese device... as in designed and built by a Chinese company and forget/don't realise that the foundation just contracted a factory in China to make them... That makes a big difference for some aspects of the whole thing.
[19:52] <_av500_> desing in the west and manufacture in china is pretty common
[19:52] <_av500_> even apple does it
[19:53] <des2> Basically all the Foundations's labot is provided gratis from the point fo view of the PI's material cost
[19:53] <des2> labor
[19:53] <traeak> contracted only the first 10k from china
[19:53] <traeak> i guess farnell, etc use china as well?
[19:53] <mkopack> Yup
[19:54] <_av500_> des2: all I was trying to say is that a $35 price for an r-pi made in china is reasonable
[19:54] <hotwings> _av500_ - if you deal with electronics manufacturing at all you should know how varied pricing can be on components depending on quantity, billing windows, reccuring/contract defined purchases, etc
[19:54] <_av500_> and nothing tremendously "special"
[19:54] <_av500_> hotwings: sure

[19:54] <_av500_> all I said is the price is about right
[19:55] <hotwings> just because you may know what one company paid for an ethernet connector, for example, in whatever quantity & under whatever terms, doesnt mean you know _anything_ about what the foundation paid for the same thing with a different quantity and terms. to say otherwise is completely absurd

[19:57] <PiOfCube> LOL if only it were a case of the cost of the parts... ;-)
[19:57] <traeak> hotwings: there's only *so many* suppliers of these components
[19:58] <hotwings> correct traeak. what does that have to do with anything though?
[19:59] <traeak> hotwings: it's possible to come up with a WAG on the cost of the RPI. The real question is: what's the uncertainty of the estimations?

[19:59] * Matthew is now known as Guest92097
[19:59] <PiOfCube> so many suppliers but they don't give the same prices to everyone. It also depends on "contacts" and not just quantity ordered.
[20:00] <traeak> how much variation though? it's really a statistics problem :-p
[20:00] <_av500_> hotwings: are you saying the r-pi sells at a loss?
[20:01] <hotwings> _av500_ - no
[20:01] <_av500_> so we agree :)
[20:01] <PiOfCube> I think the closest guess is "enough to cover costs with a little left over"
[20:01] <hotwings> _av500_ - the only thing ive said is that whether or not rpi can be sustained at $35 has yet to be seen

[20:02] <_av500_> well, for all we know, the world ends in 2012
[20:03] <PiOfCube> hotwings: True... look at how much RAM and HDD prices fluctuate. If the foundation have very small "profits" on each sale, some event which inflates compomemt prices might cause problems in the short-term at times.
[20:03] <_av500_> luckily it has not hdd
[20:03] <_av500_> no*
[20:03] <_av500_> and very little ram :)
[20:04] * mkopack (~mkopack@ Quit (Ping timeout: 248 seconds)
[20:04] <PiOfCube> true but still important. some earthquake/tsunami/etc in one part of the world and suddenly everyone is selling stuff at twice/thrice the price :S
[20:04] <hotwings> PiOfCube - thats what i mentioned earlier. im not sure how much wiggle room there is for flucuations in cost, in the rpi pricing. ive never said it think theyre being sold at a loss -- ive only said whether or not rpi is sustainable is still unproven at this point
[20:05] <hotwings> i also said that money is only half of the equation.. how the business is ran is the other half
[20:06] <PiOfCube> hotwings: I missed that but you do have a point. More so because the foundation aren't (obviously) putting a huge profit margin on them so will be more prone to that sort of problem
[20:08] <hotwings> on another note, id be willing to pay a little more (emphasis on little), if it meant opening up mpeg2 decoding in hardware
[20:10] <PiOfCube> Yeah and it would be just a little more... from what I've read it would probs be about 50 cents or even a dollar added to get more hardware decoding. But it seemed as if the foundation had a huge list but wanted to keep everything as slim as possible to avoid mission creep at first... hopefully v2 will have more.
[20:12] <zgreg> mpeg-2 licensing is expensive, though
[20:12] <hotwings> i wouldnt hate a firmware update opening it up :)
[20:13] <zgreg> I guess the mpeg la can get away with very expensive royalties because many device *need* mpeg-2
[20:13] <PiOfCube> I paid $5 for one of my mpeg2 encoding/decoding licence and that was from a vendor that sells them in single units... for bulk it's much cheaper
[20:13] <Iota> It's the weekend!
[20:13] <zgreg> STBs and the like
[20:14] <hotwings> (2) For MPEG-2 Encoding Products in hardware or software, the royalty is US $2.50 from January 1, 2002 and $4.00 before January 1, 2002 for each encode unit (Sections 2.2 and 3.1.2), but $2.00 under the new extended License from the later of January 1, 2010 or execution date.
[20:14] <hotwings> the full agreement is here: http://www.mpegla.com/main/programs/M2/Pages/Agreement.aspx
[20:15] <hotwings> that was encoding, oops
[20:15] <hotwings> (1) For MPEG-2 Decoding Products in hardware or software (such as those found in set-top boxes, DVD players and computers equipped with MPEG-2 decode units), the royalty is US $2.50 from January 1, 2002 and $4.00/unit before January 1, 2002 (Sections 2.1 and 3.1.1), but $2.00 under the new extended License from the later of January 1, 2010 or execution date.
[20:15] <zgreg> contrast that with the h.264 royalties :)
[20:16] <zgreg> if you don't sell many units, no royalties
[20:17] <hotwings> yup, i read the h264 agreement a little while back
[20:17] <hotwings> better deal no question
[20:17] <zgreg> and if you sell a notable amount of units, it's 0.20 USD in the worst case
[20:17] <_av500_> hotwings: mpeg2 is $2.50
[20:17] <_av500_> oops, missed the above
[20:17] <PiOfCube> But would the "unit" be the broadcom chip or the R-Pi device?
[20:18] <zgreg> PiOfCube: the SoC chip is not a product
[20:18] <_av500_> unit refers to what ends up in users hands
[20:19] <_av500_> ah, so its $2 only now :)
[20:19] <_av500_> mpegla is so kind
[20:19] <zgreg> _av500_: :)
[20:19] <Matt> I have to admit, for me, mpeg2 would be handy
[20:20] <zgreg> the mpeg-2 patents should expire soon, though, don't they?
[20:20] <_av500_> not sure
[20:20] <_av500_> there was a webstie tracking that stuff
[20:20] <_av500_> when what patent expires

[20:21] <zgreg> oh well
[20:21] <_av500_> great :)
[20:22] <Matt> 7334248 was apparently extended to 18 mar 2026
[20:22] <Matt> according to wikipedia, anyway
[20:22] <zgreg> software patents suck
[20:22] <PiOfCube> Such wonderful laws we have on patents these days :S
[20:22] <Matt> zgreg: correct
[20:22] <Matt> software should be covered by copyright
[20:22] <Matt> and not patents
[20:23] <zgreg> <oracle> what about APIs?
[20:23] <_av500_> :)

[20:24] <_av500_> true
[20:24] <_av500_> but its not a SW patent in the common sense

[20:24] <PiOfCube> yeah... using concpets dating back to 4000BC
[20:24] <_av500_> the 1st mpeg2 decoders did everything in hardware
[20:24] <_av500_> remember how old that stuff is
[20:25] <_av500_> and how slow it was to decode on PCs back then
[20:25] <_av500_> people had mpeg2 decoder cards in their PCs
[20:25] <PiOfCube> Yeah I had one LMAO
[20:25] <zgreg> it wouldn't be so bad, if the longevity wasn't so long
[20:26] <zgreg> i.e. technology/software patents that last maybe 5 years would be more reasonable

[20:27] <zgreg> yes, but twenty years is too long, in any case
[20:28] <zgreg> let's settle on ten years, that should be an acceptable compromise for everyone
[20:28] <_av500_> ok, you call Obama, I call Merkel

[20:28] <PiOfCube> 10 years is fine as long as they can't add a few full-stops to the patent and re-submit it again :S
[20:29] <zgreg> PiOfCube: does it really work like that?
[20:29] <_av500_> kind of
[20:29] <PiOfCube> Not quite but close enough for the unwashed like us LOL
[20:29] <_av500_> google "submarine patents"
[20:29] <_av500_> though they stopped that
[20:30] <_av500_> you could patent teleportation and then extend it forever until somebody invents it
[20:30] <PiOfCube> One of the tricks they use is to submit a dodgy patent in one country that's very easily "funded" and other countries accept the patent to comply with patent treaties.
[20:31] <_av500_> I like how the chinese copy western patents and then ask for royalties from the original inventors :)
[20:31] <zgreg> _av500_: that's awesome :)

[20:34] <cjbaird> The original 'on paper' design was royality-free... but Frunhoffer went around and patented all the practical ways of implimenting it.
[20:35] <SpeedEvil> http://xkcd.com/857/ - for some reason springs to mind on patents
[20:35] <cjbaird> The Lame encoder project, I think, had an effort to find a on-spec encode method which Frunhoffer had missed.

[20:37] <_av500_> it's Fraunhofer btw.
[20:37] <zgreg> SpeedEvil: not practical though
[20:38] <ReggieUK> the thing that annoys me is that concepts get patented of cprighted without actually producing the goods

[21:40] <zgreg> I guess the nice SD slots are sort of expensive
[21:40] <IT_Sean> Exactly
[21:40] <IT_Sean> Harder to get, and more expensive
[21:40] <zgreg> you know, the fancy ones that lock the card completely in
[21:40] <IT_Sean> I prefer the clicky ones
[21:40] <zgreg> and a click-push ejects the SD card
[21:41] <IT_Sean> Yeah
[21:41] <OneFix_Work> IT_Sean: Oh, so I wonder if anyone is working on modding a card to take one of the expensive slots
[21:41] <IT_Sean> Sadly, those are more aspensive. And take up more room on the board
[21:41] <ReggieUK> I wonder if you could claw back a couple of io pins from the sd socket
[21:41] <IT_Sean> I don't see it happened g
[21:41] <ReggieUK> it has to boot from SD
[21:41] <SpeedEvil> ReggieUK: In principle, I think 3.
[21:41] <zgreg> let's just hope the cheap plastic SD slot endures many insertions

[21:42] <OneFix_Work> IT_Sean: it just concerns me that the card might fall out if the card were mounted on something that was moving...
[21:43] <IT_Sean> Gaffer tape
[21:43] <SpeedEvil> Hotmelt works well
[21:43] <zgreg> ReggieUK: but really, does the SoC not have enough GPIOs or what? why skip the write-protect switch?
[21:43] <IT_Sean> Tape the buggering bugger out of it
[21:43] <IT_Sean> :p
[21:43] <IT_Sean> zgreg: The slot they used does not have the sensor for the switch
[21:43] <OneFix_Work> peeps[work]: Presumably, these would overclock better than say a desktop CPU, but not as good as say a cell phone CPU
[21:43] <zgreg> oh. so it's a REALLY cheap one :)
[21:44] <IT_Sean> OneFix_Work: The raspi IS a cell phone CPU, basically
[21:44] <IT_Sean> zgreg: Yup
[21:44] <Matt> zgreg: every fraction of a penny they could save, they did
[21:44] <IT_Sean> The whole point was to keep the price right down to a minimum
[21:44] <OneFix_Work> IT_Sean: Not exactly...more like a settop box CPU :)
[21:44] <zgreg> yeah, of course
[21:44] <IT_Sean> So, if they can save .002p on each SD card slot... ... ...
[21:44] <zgreg> analog sound output is especially funny
[21:45] <OneFix_Work> IT_Sean: The reason I say that is because, in many cases, cell phone CPUs are underclocked to meet power requirements, but in the settop box market, that's less common...
[21:45] <zgreg> I still wonder what the sound quality is like and if it's possible to directly drive headphones

[21:48] <OneFix_Work> zgreg: Not sure. Since there is very little components in the analog output part, I would think it would have a lot to do with how good the connector is.
[21:48] <SpeedEvil> Connector is quite irrelevant.
[21:48] <zgreg> yes
[21:48] <SpeedEvil> It'll be how much the drive is from the chip, and the size of the decoupling capacitors.
[21:48] * indigenous (~indigenou@pdpc/supporter/student/indigenous) has joined #raspberrypi
[21:48] <zgreg> what matters is that the foundation went with a very simple PWM solution instead of using a proper DAC
[21:49] <SpeedEvil> I would be extremely surprised if it could meaningfully drive unamplified headphones, rather than an amp
[21:49] * zyklon (~zyklon@ has joined #raspberrypi
[21:49] <zgreg> the PWM outputs are almost directly connected to the connector (there's only a bit of protection diodes and a simple passive low-pass filter inbetween)
[21:50] <zgreg> SpeedEvil: yeah, I doubt it, too
[21:50] <SpeedEvil> PWM works just fine to drive phones
[21:50] <zgreg> I hope earplugs will work with sufficient volume
[21:50] <OneFix_Work> zgreg: I think we are finding that is the major differentiator in the whole rPi design. I predict that a "premium" version will be made at some point (at an extra cost) with better connectors.
[21:51] <zgreg> the connectors aren't the issue, really
[21:52] <OneFix_Work> zgreg: To some extent, you're right. I think it's more a question of what the BCOM chip can do
[21:52] <zgreg> there's no amplification at all, and the filter is probably quite sensitive to noise
[21:52] <zgreg> that are the problems
[21:53] <zgreg> OneFix_Work: yes, of course. it's a pretty nifty trick to use PWM, but usually you'd use a DAC (the SoC has an interface for that)

[22:07] <OneFix_Work> I'm also guessing that SDXC won't work on it...
[22:08] <BenO> Yeah, no SD 3.0s
[22:08] <BenO> At least, so I've been informed
[22:08] <OneFix_Work> BenO: So, I think that limits it to 32GB
[22:08] <zgreg> it does not work due to the lack of .18V
[22:08] <zgreg> 1.8V
[22:09] <zgreg> hmm as far as I know most big SD cards still support the old transfer modes
[22:09] <zgreg> they should work fine
[22:09] <zgreg> the 32 GB limitation is artificial and only FAT32's fault
[22:10] <zgreg> FAT32 is (officially) only supported up to a size of 32 GB per filesystem
[22:10] <OneFix_Work> So, we could stick one of these in it ... http://www.amazon.com/Lexar-SDXC-Flash-Memory-LSD128CRBNA133/dp/B004SAMZW4

[22:11] <OneFix_Work> Though, I would question the sanity of putting a $200 SD card on a $35 card
[22:11] <Iota> I just took a look at the ArchLinux ARM packages and noticed they're either armv5 or armv7, which is the raspberry pi using?

[22:12] <acfrazier> the armv5tl build of ALARM is the one you want
[22:12] <Iota> Thanks, acfrazier.
[22:12] <acfrazier> armv7 will not run on the rpi, though it can run armv6
[22:12] * zyklon (~zyklon@ has joined #raspberrypi
[22:13] <OneFix_Work> Iota: It's actually ARMv6, but v5 should work

[22:13] <acfrazier> yep
[22:13] <Iota> Neato, thank guys.
[22:13] <OneFix_Work> Iota: Which is weird, because ARMv6 is also called ARM11
[22:14] <acfrazier> I still haven't gotten mine yet, Newark has a ship date of late May now
[22:14] <acfrazier> which is rather disappointing
[22:14] <Iota> Oh really? I'm guessing there's no quick explination of that? I'll have to read.
[22:14] <zgreg> OneFix_Work: well, not exactly
[22:14] <OneFix_Work> acfrazier: Did they update your ship date?
[22:14] <acfrazier> they did
[22:14] <zgreg> ARMv6 is the name of the ISA, ARM11 is an implementation of that ISA
[22:14] <zgreg> ISA = instruction set architecture
[22:15] <acfrazier> after the first 10000, orders start shipping in late may
[22:15] <Iota> I see.
[22:15] <acfrazier> from what I've seen
[22:15] <hotwings> my newark/element14 ship dates still say aug.16th :\
[22:15] <OneFix_Work> zgreg: Right, I know...one is the architecture, and one is the instruction set, but it still causes confusion
[22:15] <acfrazier> someone internally at newark told me they have a million on order because they have at least half that in interest

[22:15] * passstab still wishes he could track
[22:16] <acfrazier> hotwings, order date?
[22:16] <zgreg> ARMv6 is special because there's not much after ARM11 that implements it, but for ARMv5 and ARMv7 there are many different implementations
[22:16] <passstab> but i called and they said may 1 at latest
[22:16] <hotwings> i ordered march 1, and a second one on march 3
[22:16] <acfrazier> that's why
[22:16] <acfrazier> I ordered on 2/29
[22:17] <Iota> Thanks for the explination, zgreg.
[22:17] <acfrazier> probably have a huge volume of orders to go through
[22:17] <OneFix_Work> hotwings: If you ordered before April 18th, they have all said that you would get yours between May 1st and June 1st. Estimated ship dates will be updated when they know your board is being produced.
[22:17] <passstab> mar5
[22:17] <OneFix_Work> zgreg: Of course, the next big step for ARM is 64-bit
[22:18] <hotwings> there was a lot of orders on 2/29 but a lot less than people think due to the crashed servers
[22:18] <Iota> http://www.arm.com/products/processors/technologies/instruction-set-architectures.php Is there a video on that site?! I don't have flash and can't see where it's coming from...
[22:18] <zgreg> I don't see a video
[22:19] <Iota> Oh there we go! It's a YouTube video on the "ARMv8 Resources" tab.
[22:19] <Iota> It seems to autostart.

[23:09] <Hexxeh> DJWillis: Ah, so just framebuffer acceleration
[23:09] <Hexxeh> Rather than 3D stuff
[23:09] <Purgox> Hm.
[23:09] <Purgox> I don't see any indication of Raspberry Pi support on the OE wiki
[23:09] <BenO> Matt, yeah :) It forced us to have a smaller backup centre at Osney, in an area prone to flooding, on the ground floor.
[23:10] <Matt> BenO: lol
[23:10] <BenO> Matt, So if Oxford, like you know, lose their digital scans of the Dead sea scrolls or their google book scans, it's their fault ;)
[23:10] <DJWillis> Hexxeh: well it's for XOrg so 2D routines.
[23:10] <Matt> BenO: we help support the storage U of T library use for their digital archiving project
[23:11] <Purgox> So, to get this straight, the basic Pi booting procedure is kernel + firmware on partition #1 (fat32) and rootfs on partition #2 (ext2)?
[23:11] <graingert> BenO: have you got a torrent for them all?
[23:11] <Hexxeh> Purgox: yes
[23:11] <DJWillis> Purgox: http://blogs.distant-earth.com/wp/ is what I am working on, it's now pending for inclusion in Angstrom.
[23:11] <Purgox> Any specific filenames the kernel/firmware have to be?
[23:11] <BenO> Matt, U of T = Texas?
[23:12] <Matt> Toronto
[23:12] <BenO> graingert, no, but they are putting them online soon. We made sure they scanned only items before 1887 to avoid (c) so they can be reused freely
[23:12] <Hexxeh> Purgox: same as these here https://github.com/raspberrypi/firmware/tree/master/boot
[23:12] <Hexxeh> Purgox: look at an existing image for reference
[23:12] <Purgox> Also, I see.
[23:12] <Purgox> Also, cheers.
[23:13] <DJWillis> Purgox: well you need the boot files and the kernel needs the 32k prepended bit.
[23:13] <Purgox> I assume everything not part of the kernel* is firmware?
[23:13] <Purgox> DJWillis: Yeah.
[23:13] <graingert> BenO: I'd like to know the info about that
[23:13] <Purgox> kernel*.img files, I mean
[23:13] <BenO> Matt, Ah cool :) I think I may have met them at some point... possibly at the Open Repositories event a few years back. Might be different folk now ofc
[23:13] <graingert> BenO: is there anywhere I can find out more about that
[23:15] <BenO> graingert, I think the Old English Books did a release of their stuff - they hand-encode it all in TEI/EAD so not that layperson friendly
[23:16] <BenO> We are going to put it all into a public store quite soon though. Not putting out any deadlines for it, as it is very much a 2 programmer project so far
[23:16] <graingert> the geocities mirror torrent didn't make that much sense to the layperson, but they ended up reasonably well seeded
[23:16] <graingert> for their size
[23:16] <graingert> I always figure it's best to get as many stars as possible for the data
