[0:00] * mikos (~mikos@5ac8890e.bb.sky.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:01] <BenO> That would probably explain the MAC difference between arch and debian that some noticed
[0:04] <Iota> I read that if you remove the mac address, then the firmware will supply it's own in the RPF owned range, based on the serial number.
[0:05] <Iota> I guess they'll remove it next time round then.
[0:05] <Iota> I'll do mine now. See if it works.
[0:06] <Iota> Infact, the maintainer said so. He's using an alpha board that doesn't have a serial number was why it's there.
[0:06] * danieldaniel (~danieldan@unaffiliated/danieldaniel) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:06] <danieldaniel> IT CAME
[0:06] <danieldaniel> OMG
[0:06] <Matt> on a saturday evening?
[0:07] <Hexxeh> timezones
[0:07] <danieldaniel> No
[0:07] <danieldaniel> it came awhile ago
[0:07] <danieldaniel> I was on vacation
[0:08] * ARMadillo (~Raspberry@cpc1-pmth10-2-0-cust523.6-1.cable.virginmedia.com) Quit (Quit: Going down!)
[0:08] <danieldaniel> anyone else have them?
[0:09] <Iota> All's well.
[0:09] <Travenin> are the people who has already recieved their raspis they, who were superfast on leap day morning?
[0:09] <Hexxeh> and devs, yes
[0:09] <danieldaniel> yes
[0:10] * chris_99 (~chris_99@unaffiliated/chris-99/x-3062929) Quit (Ping timeout: 256 seconds)
[0:10] <Travenin> ok thanks for the info

[0:19] * fstm__ (~fstm@ has joined #raspberrypi
[0:19] <danieldaniel> holy crap

[0:19] <danieldaniel> Its at $164.39
[0:20] <BenO> danieldaniel, over four or five in this channel at least
[0:20] <danieldaniel> Only four or five?????
[0:20] <Hydrazine> I've got one
[0:20] <BenO> who are on irc, in this channel and discussing it tonight
[0:20] <hotwings> $164 rpi? NOPE!
[0:20] <hamitron> I don't get why people are paying that much
[0:20] <hamitron> unless it is people just bidding high, to stop the sale
[0:20] <danieldaniel> Yeah
[0:21] <BenO> more money than sense?
[0:21] * Syliss (~Syliss@ Quit (Quit: Syliss)
[0:21] <danieldaniel> Seriously though
[0:21] <danieldaniel> XD
[0:21] <danieldaniel> and I have 2 more coming, as I accidentally ordered 2 from farnell
[0:21] <hamitron> seriously, there are better boards for that amount of money
[0:21] <danieldaniel> and then one from RS
[0:21] <hamitron> :)
[0:21] <danieldaniel> I should make an unboxing vid
[0:21] <danieldaniel> nah
[0:21] * danieldaniel rips open box
[0:22] <Hydrazine> hehe
[0:22] <hotwings> please dont. unboxing videos are lame as all hell
[0:22] <Iota> If I was going to spend ??150, I'd get a PandaBoard, LOL!
[0:22] <danieldaniel> I know
[0:22] <hamitron> if you overpay for something that is soley built to be cheap, it fails to be cheap, and still performs no better
[0:22] <BenO> danieldaniel, there are quite a few unboxing vids already - you are two or three days behind the curve ;)
[0:22] <danieldaniel> D:
[0:22] <danieldaniel> well fien
[0:22] * ShiftPlusOne2 (~shift@unaffiliated/shiftplusone) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:23] <danieldaniel> shift?
[0:23] <hamitron> ah, but is there an unboxing vid, with a real hot girl in a bikini unboxing it?
[0:23] <hamitron> ;)
[0:23] * mikos (~mikos@5ac8890e.bb.sky.com) Quit (Quit: Textual IRC Client: www.textualapp.com)
[0:23] <a_c_r> I also am pi-enabled.
[0:23] <danieldaniel> ShiftPlusOne2: Please tell me thats not you
[0:23] <ShiftPlusOne2> danieldaniel, who?
[0:23] <hotwings> the girl in the bikini
[0:23] <danieldaniel> Are you the shift from skype?
[0:24] <danieldaniel> if not; I know someone who goes by Shift
[0:24] * chandoo (~chandoo@ool-ad032250.dyn.optonline.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:24] <ShiftPlusOne2> Nuh, this is not the Shift you're looking for. =)

[0:25] <danieldaniel> k
[0:25] <danieldaniel> wow
[0:25] <danieldaniel> Of course I don't have an SD card
[0:25] <danieldaniel> >.>
[0:25] <Iota> >.<
[0:26] <danieldaniel> found one
[0:26] <danieldaniel> in my computer
[0:26] * ShiftPlusOne (~shift@unaffiliated/shiftplusone) Quit (Ping timeout: 265 seconds)
[0:26] <danieldaniel> wait
[0:26] <danieldaniel> what the hell
[0:26] <danieldaniel> wheres the power supply
[0:27] <danieldaniel> WOW
[0:27] <BenO> micro-USB power required
[0:27] <danieldaniel> can it be to a computer?
[0:28] * pir2 is pipowered
[0:28] <danieldaniel> If not, Im really mad
[0:28] <a_c_r> Yeah, you can generally power the pi from a computer, but NO PERIPHERALS
[0:28] <danieldaniel> ok
[0:28] <a_c_r> I have been powering it from an Agilent bench supply so I can moniter current loads
[0:28] <danieldaniel> Should I leave it on the bag?
[0:29] <a_c_r> without any peripherals, you can keep it under 500mA (USB2 port max rating)
[0:29] <a_c_r> but when I added my Alfa AWUS036H wifi adapter, idle current went up to ~600-700mA
[0:29] <SpeedEvil> It will generally never damage a computer to overload it.
[0:30] <SpeedEvil> >99% of motherboard ports will supply 1A
[0:30] <SpeedEvil> If the other port is unloaded
[0:30] <pir2> laptops can be picky tho
[0:30] <SpeedEvil> yes
[0:30] <danieldaniel> its an imac
[0:30] <a_c_r> SpeedEvil: very true, but you may not be aware of overcurrent issues.
[0:30] <SpeedEvil> Indeed.
[0:30] <a_c_r> the pi may behave strangely without warning.
[0:30] <SpeedEvil> If it's flaky, first assume it's power
[0:30] <SpeedEvil> If doing that
[0:31] <a_c_r> yeah. i powered the pi off of a 500mA port and the wifi adapter flooded the console with errors. power problems.
[0:31] <SpeedEvil> a_c_r: Can you try reducing the voltage, and seeing what stops?
[0:32] <SpeedEvil> I suspect most stuff will work down to ~3.6V or so.
[0:32] <a_c_r> i can when i get home. I'm at the library pretending to be productive.
[0:32] <SpeedEvil> :)
[0:32] <a_c_r> I like your idea. Starve it!
[0:32] <SpeedEvil> And clearly one way to save energy would be to run it on a DC-DC at 3.6V or whatever
[0:33] <SpeedEvil> Replacing the internal regs of course would be better.
[0:33] <a_c_r> I'm very intersted in the power side of things.
[0:33] <SpeedEvil> I suspect the core may not even crash till the 1.8V supply starts to sag
[0:33] <SpeedEvil> I should really look at the schematics someone mentioned.
[0:34] <a_c_r> perhaps. I really wish there was better documentation available on the power management hardware
[0:34] <SpeedEvil> :/
[0:34] <SpeedEvil> Indeed.
[0:34] <a_c_r> well, i can hook up the scope to test points and then gradually reduce the voltage.
[0:34] <BenO> a_c_r, you could've stopped that sentence after the word 'available' IMO
[0:34] <SpeedEvil> The 'easy' way to more than half consumption would be to wire to your own regulators.
[0:35] <SpeedEvil> - switching
[0:35] <a_c_r> BenO: agreed.
[0:35] <SpeedEvil> But they don't for obvious reasons do switching on the board
[0:35] <a_c_r> "average" idle current at 5v is around 375-425mA
[0:36] <a_c_r> seems high to me
[0:36] <SpeedEvil> Indeed.
[0:37] <a_c_r> I need to dig into the linux power management voodoo. I've only done power managment with bare metal applications.
[0:37] <SpeedEvil> If you say that that's probably 1/3 3.3V, 2/3 1.8V, then that's ~150mA if it was using switching regs.
[0:37] <SpeedEvil> Which is ballpark comparable with my phone at 600MHz, without powersave
[0:37] <a_c_r> hrmmm.
[0:37] <SpeedEvil> Also that may count ethernet chip / hub power
[0:38] <a_c_r> I'd really like to get power usage to minimum so I can have it sit idle on batteries.
[0:38] <Hydrazine> that would be nice
[0:38] <a_c_r> To be continued in a few minutes. food itme.
[0:38] <a_c_r> errr time
[0:39] <danieldaniel> oh
[0:39] <danieldaniel> thats funny
[0:39] <danieldaniel> my phone charger works with it
[0:39] <danieldaniel> :D
[0:40] <danieldaniel> how long will dd take for debian?
[0:40] <Hexxeh> depends how slow your SD card is
[0:40] <danieldaniel> its slow
[0:40] <danieldaniel> its an eye-fi
[0:40] <danieldaniel> Also, should I leave the rpi on the static bag it came in?
[0:41] <Hexxeh> you can if you like, it's non-conductive
[0:41] <SpeedEvil> Is it pink?
[0:42] <danieldaniel> no
[0:42] <danieldaniel> its not pink
[0:42] <danieldaniel> its gray
[0:42] <danieldaniel> and yet another question
[0:42] <danieldaniel> Can I use a USB to power thing?
[0:42] <SpeedEvil> gray and shiny, or just gray and sort of dull?
[0:42] <SpeedEvil> yes
[0:42] <danieldaniel> ok
[0:42] <SpeedEvil> But only the pi
[0:42] <SpeedEvil> nothing else
[0:42] <danieldaniel> Yeah
[0:42] <danieldaniel> even with usb to power?
[0:43] <danieldaniel> i mean
[0:43] <danieldaniel> A USB to wall
[0:43] <SpeedEvil> running stuff through an external powered hub is fine
[0:43] <Hexxeh> alexsdutton: just noticed your android repos, nice, how far did you get with that?
[0:43] <SpeedEvil> ah - in that case, yes, if it's a real 1A charger
[0:43] <danieldaniel> I think/hope it is
[0:43] <SpeedEvil> Also, I'd encourage you to verify the voltage first
[0:43] <danieldaniel> how?
[0:43] <danieldaniel> I'm being a noob :(
[0:43] <SpeedEvil> If it's a cheap charger
[0:44] <SpeedEvil> If you have a meter.
[0:44] <danieldaniel> its an android charger
[0:44] <danieldaniel> combined with a kindle one
[0:44] <danieldaniel> Like, an android mini-usb
[0:44] <danieldaniel> and a usb-wall kindle
[0:44] <SpeedEvil> Should be fine then
[0:44] <danieldaniel> Ok
[0:44] <danieldaniel> Sorry for all these questions
[0:44] <SpeedEvil> If it's real kindle, not clone
[0:44] <danieldaniel> I don't want to break it
[0:44] <danieldaniel> oh, sorry
[0:44] <danieldaniel> not kindle
[0:44] <danieldaniel> nook
[0:44] <Hexxeh> oh wow, a port of the rpi patches to kernel 3.3.1 too, awesome
[0:45] <danieldaniel> and I'm 100% sure its not a clone; got it from b&n
[0:45] <raynerd> I`ve just been trying to follow this conversation - can someone just clarify then, what is the ideal power supply for the pi?
[0:45] <SpeedEvil> I mean in general any 'brand name' charger will probably be OK.
[0:45] <danieldaniel> Ok
[0:45] <danieldaniel> Thanks!
[0:46] <SpeedEvil> raynerd: The issue is that many USB 'chargers' are extremely, extremely cheaply built - to the point of either being unreliable, or actually potentially damaging it due to high voltage.
[0:46] <SpeedEvil> raynerd: In general, 'brand name' genuine chargers are going to be OK.
[0:46] <raynerd> ok...so what is the ideal?
[0:46] <raynerd> so if I was to purchase a charger for the Pi, what am I best going for? ....
[0:47] <SpeedEvil> If you're just using it on the desk - then plug into a powered hub or a motherboard port.
[0:47] <SpeedEvil> and use a powered usb hub to connect stuff to it
[0:48] <SpeedEvil> Otherwise, find a name brand 1A 5V charger from a genuine reputable source.
[0:48] <raynerd> that would be tricky for moving it about....I`d ideally need a plug in supply.
[0:48] <raynerd> OK
[0:48] <SpeedEvil> Not amazon sellers, or ebay - stocked by amazon themselves

[0:51] <raynerd> go for it...panic when it goes bang :p
[0:52] <danieldaniel> just finished
[0:52] <danieldaniel> :D :D :D
[0:52] * danieldaniel plugs it in
[0:52] <danieldaniel> BOOM
[0:52] <pir2> when you see blue smoke, you are doing it wrong
[0:52] <danieldaniel> theres no place for the SD
[0:53] <danieldaniel> wtf
[0:53] <pir2> on the back
[0:53] <danieldaniel> oh
[0:53] <danieldaniel> yeah
[0:53] <SpeedEvil> http://search.digikey.com/us/en/products/EPS050100U-I38-SZ/T1003-ND/1559357 would be an example of a PSU
[0:53] <SpeedEvil> Actual specs, you can probably believe.
[0:54] <danieldaniel> what should I do if theres actually blue smoke
[0:54] <Hydrazine> panic
[0:54] <danieldaniel> oh crap
[0:54] <raynerd> order a new one
[0:54] <pir2> buy a new one
[0:54] <SpeedEvil> Then you got the 'Genie' edition.
[0:54] <SpeedEvil> Make a wish!
[0:54] <Hydrazine> wish for a new one
[0:55] <pir2> sniff it and become a litle bit cyborg
[0:55] <SpeedEvil> http://search.digikey.com/us/en/products/PSA05F-050Q/993-1068-ND/2384534 - for those in the US anyway - this seems quite reasonable.
[0:55] <SpeedEvil> Folding PSU, with actual datasheet.
[0:55] <BenO> er... is there actually black smoke?
[0:55] <danieldaniel> it worked :D
[0:55] <danieldaniel> is there a switch somewhere?
[0:56] <danieldaniel> and its not safe to touch, right?
[0:56] <des2> Switches cost money.
[0:56] <BenO> Power switch? er there might be. Is there one next to your phone charger on the wall?
[0:57] * pir2 has http://uk.farnell.com/_/st-099a17/micro-usb-mobile-phone-charger/dp/2081769 on order
[0:57] <danieldaniel> no
[0:57] <danieldaniel> its just not showing up
[0:57] <danieldaniel> and theres a red light
[0:57] <BenO> no green above it?
[0:57] <BenO> "OK" led?
[0:57] <danieldaniel> there is
[0:57] <pir2> whats on the SD card?
[0:57] <danieldaniel> just small green light
[0:57] <raynerd> speedevil - anything suitable on ebay uk
[0:57] <SpeedEvil> raynerd: The fun part is yes, there is.
[0:57] <BenO> danieldaniel, then it's on and potentially booting/booted
[0:58] <danieldaniel> then Y U NO SHOW UP
[0:58] <SpeedEvil> raynerd: The problem is that you absolutely can't tell what will suit, and what will literally explode when you plug it into the wall.
[0:58] <BenO> danieldaniel, what do you have it plugged into?
[0:58] * ShiftPlusOne2 (~shift@unaffiliated/shiftplusone) Quit (Ping timeout: 244 seconds)
[0:58] <danieldaniel> i plugged the RCA cable into the yellow one
[0:58] <BenO> It's not a component out, it's a composite
[0:59] <BenO> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Composite_video
[0:59] <danieldaniel> i got it from rs
[0:59] <raynerd> +SpeedEvil - that is annoying!
[0:59] <danieldaniel> it says stereo to rca
[0:59] * afief (~quassel@93-172-235-74.bb.netvision.net.il) Quit (Ping timeout: 265 seconds)
[1:00] <danieldaniel> did I get an audio cable?
[1:00] <BenO> danieldaniel, does it look like the cable here? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Component_video
[1:00] <danieldaniel> wow
[1:00] <danieldaniel> no
[1:00] <danieldaniel> its two ends
[1:00] <BenO> got a link to it?
[1:00] <SpeedEvil> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T88ej64aXUM - chinese PSU analysis. - a cheap one
[1:00] <danieldaniel> it says 3.5mm stereo to twin RCA cable
[1:00] <SpeedEvil> I bought 5, that I mean to analyse - but I ahven't gotten round to them yet.
[1:00] <danieldaniel> 200-0114155
[1:01] <BenO> danieldaniel, it does sound like a sound cable "twin phono" perhaps?
[1:01] <danieldaniel> wow
[1:01] <danieldaniel> :(
[1:01] <danieldaniel> i can just unplug it, right?
[1:01] <BenO> http://www.audiovisualonline.co.uk/product/1588/fisual-3-5mm-jack-to-phonos-30cm-install-series-special <--- something like this?
[1:02] <danieldaniel> loading page
[1:02] <danieldaniel> Yeah
[1:02] <des2> Yes that would be a 3.5 mm stereo to to separate RCA jack audio cable
[1:02] <danieldaniel> its that
[1:02] <pir2> danieldaniel: you should shutdown, but if it hasnt booted yes
[1:02] <danieldaniel> ok
[1:02] <danieldaniel> i have an hdmi somewhere
[1:02] <danieldaniel> brb
[1:03] <BenO> Do you have a monitor that can take in HDMI? or a tv?
[1:03] <des2> The composite video jack on the PI is also an RCA jack.
[1:03] <pir2> DVI-D as well

[1:05] <BenO> this povray benchmark is worse than watching paint dry: "1:18:47 Rendering line 15 of 384, 40 supersamples" (softfp/armel)
[1:06] <Hydrazine> BenO: how hard is it to have only the /boot partition on the SD-card?
[1:07] <Hexxeh> on roughly the 2:50:00 mark now, 140 of 384
[1:07] <Hydrazine> do I just have to edit the cmdline.txt to point to lets say an usb stick?
[1:07] <Hexxeh> you need a new kernel that allows you to point to the usb stick
[1:07] <danieldaniel> i found one of those componet
[1:07] <danieldaniel> component
[1:08] <Hexxeh> otherwise, it won't be able to see the usb stick until it's loaded the module that lets it see it
[1:08] <BenO> Hydrazine, not too hard - edit cmdline and also use a kernel with certain options baked in like UAS and usb storage
[1:08] <Hexxeh> which... resides on the very drive you're trying to access
[1:08] <Hydrazine> hmmm
[1:08] <Hydrazine> sounds like a nice challenge for tomorrow
[1:08] <raynerd> wow, just watched the youtube link - that is scary!!
[1:09] <BenO> Hydrazine, either: http://elinux.org/Rpi_kernel_compilation or ask someone who's already built one nicely ;)
[1:09] <danieldaniel> YAY

[1:19] <a_c_r> back. Got a quirky question. Pi seems to have an HDMI detection such that if an HDMI is detected on poweron, it uses it; else it defaults to composite output. Is there a way to override this behavior and force it to use HDMI output?
[1:20] <friggle> a_c_r: hdmi_force_hotplug=1
[1:20] <friggle> a_c_r: in config.txt in the boot partition
[1:21] <a_c_r> friggle: Awesome! my HDMI switch has been making things difficult.
[1:21] <friggle> a_c_r: you might need to force the hdmi modes though, as the Pi won't be able to choose output format through EDID
[1:22] <a_c_r> friggle: good point. i'll experiment and see what works.
[1:22] <friggle> a_c_r: see http://www.raspberrypi.org/forum/general-discussion/config-txt for reference
[1:22] <friggle> a_c_r: and some newer options are documented at http://www.raspberrypi.org/forum/troubleshooting/no-hdmi-output-composite-ok/page-2
[1:22] <danieldaniel> where should I put the init?
[1:23] <pir2> danieldaniel: whats on the SD?
[1:23] <a_c_r> good links. i guess the alternate is to just SSH and tell it to switch outputs

[1:23] <danieldaniel> i downloaded it from the site

[1:25] <pir2> danieldaniel: not sure, I havent had that issue, but I have had fun with some SD's they can be picky about how they are burnt
[1:25] <danieldaniel> also, theres no config
[1:26] <danieldaniel> theres a cmdline.txt though
[1:26] <a_c_r> Bah. guess I'm going to have to build a kernel, or at the very least some modules.
[1:27] <danieldaniel> all I have to do is burn the image to my SD with dd, right?
[1:27] <pir2> that should work
[1:27] <danieldaniel> should I try the kernel that Hexxeh posted?

[1:49] <ted__> why are you cancelling
[1:49] <danieldaniel> Would rather give me spot in line to somebody else
[1:49] <danieldaniel> ted__: I have one, thats enough
[1:49] <ted__> ahhh i see
[1:50] <a_c_r> pir2: maybe. everything was broken on 2/29.
[1:50] <pir2> true
[1:50] <wizkid057> i'll give them a little time to get mine together... if nothing heard by the end of the month i'll probably cancel mine

[1:58] <wizkid057> i used to play on one server that ran a mod called Shifter

[1:58] <wizkid057> this one server was always packed at the max players

[1:59] <wizkid057> well, i dont know if you're in the US
[2:00] <ted__> yeah 7200 rpm is... a lot more common than 5400
[2:00] <ted__> except for laptops i guess
[2:00] <ted__> still went for a 7200 at the penalty of batterylife
[2:00] <wizkid057> Jak_o_Shadows: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822148840 <-- i'm running two of these
[2:01] <Jak_o_Shadows> also, what I want to know, is if it's making SSD's more expensive to be built in 2.5" form factor
[2:01] <des2> no
[2:01] <wizkid057> Jak_o_Shadows: nope
[2:01] <wizkid057> the flash memory chips are the cost factor
[2:01] <des2> SSDs are by their nature small
[2:02] <des2> In fact it is costing them more to make them 3.5"

[2:02] <wizkid057> ted__: ultra fast though
[2:02] <pir2> did SSD prices get hit by the thai floods last year as well?
[2:02] <wizkid057> a friend of mine used one in his latest gaming rig...
[2:02] <Jak_o_Shadows> http://www.msy.com.au/product.jsp?productId=7386 what about that? Almost the same as the above link.
[2:02] <des2> Indirectly
[2:02] <wizkid057> pir2: yes, but not as bad
[2:03] <pir2> ok, thanks
[2:03] <wizkid057> pir2: and mainly just do to shift in supply/demand
[2:03] <des2> Because they boosted prices for conventional demand thus making SSDs more competitive and resulting in increased SSD demand
[2:03] <wizkid057> Jak_o_Shadows: yeah, thats not bad either
[2:04] <Jak_o_Shadows> Hmm, should I drive to get that one, or walk the 1.7 k's (one way) to get it from the store naer work?
[2:04] <wizkid057> if its the same price, why not just physically go get it? :)
[2:05] <wizkid057> thats why I bought mine at the local store... i'm in NJ, USA, so, Newegg charges me tax... figure if its the same price, might as well get it locally
[2:05] * pir2 thinks you should cartwheel to the store
[2:06] <Jak_o_Shadows> 3.4k's will take me nearly an hour

[2:25] <SpeedEvil> No, not thermal

[2:26] <Wolfram74> out of curiosity, is newark going to correct the ship-by dates on their page, or will be there be some surprising date when an R-pi shows up on my door?
[2:26] <ReggieUK> along with the obvious moon/sky-glow filters and ir-cut
[2:26] <SpeedEvil> If cloud - you want to cut all visible if you've got any reflected light off them
[2:27] <ReggieUK> I could certainly block 99.99% of all light out
[2:27] <ReggieUK> but guessing that's not what you're suggesting

[2:38] <Wolfram74> i'd kind of figured people had made the graphics card do interesting graphics-y things
[2:39] <BenO> Wolfram74, No idea if you will get things like Cuda and so on working through this - the GPU is currently hidden behind an interface
[2:39] <BenO> Wolfram74, OpenGL ES 2.0 is fine
[2:40] <ted__> no CUDA, and doing full matrix operations with shaders is
[2:40] <ted__> unpleasant.
[2:40] <Wolfram74> heehee
[2:41] <ReggieUK> cuda is nvidia only isn't it?
[2:41] <BenO> Wolfram74, however, the initial tests of using the hardfp side of things is promising - not amazing, but certainly a hell of a lot better than expected
[2:41] <BenO> ReggieUK, yeah - what is it, OpenCL or something like that?
[2:41] <BenO> (the general one)
[2:41] <Wolfram74> maybe it's for the best that i'm not getting my Rpi for many months
[2:42] <Wolfram74> when i do get many cagier minds than mine will have worked out lots of lovely tricks
[2:43] <BenO> Wolfram74, well, there is a possibility - the bootup sequence uses the GPU to bootstrap a kernel - it certainly has the power to run things itself
[2:43] <ted__> yeah anything that uses floating point is going to benefit 10x+ with hardfp support

[2:47] <ted__> there';s always beagleboard xm... but pi is so so much cheaper
[2:48] <Wolfram74> bah, 700 mhz should be enough for anyone, you just need better math

[2:58] <IT_Sean> the description is facepalmable, as well "

[2:59] <danieldaniel> 20% Of This Auction Will Be Donated To.
[2:59] <danieldaniel> 10% Will Be Donated To Make A Wish Foundation.
[2:59] <danieldaniel> 10% Will Be Donated To Raspberry Pi.
[2:59] <danieldaniel> For some reason I think thats BS
[2:59] <IT_Sean> Yeah.
[2:59] <IT_Sean> i smell the bullpucky from here
[2:59] <danieldaniel> But seriously
[2:59] <danieldaniel> WTF
[2:59] <danieldaniel> people are trying to make money from this?
[2:59] <Wolfram74> only 20% donations, that's kind of bull
[2:59] <danieldaniel> It's not what it's meant for
[3:00] <Wolfram74> bastards gonna pocket 160$
[3:00] <ted__> ugh
[3:00] <ted__> come on farnell/rs
[3:00] <ted__> the quicker we get tons out there
[3:00] <ted__> the less these dicks will make
[3:00] <IT_Sean> dicktards
[3:01] <Wolfram74> i did think that having about 10% of each run being auctioned would benefit the foundation
[3:01] <Wolfram74> but this guys going to pocket an incredible amount of money
[3:01] <danieldaniel> Wolfram74: He's not gonna donate it
[3:01] <IT_Sean> he should donate all of it
[3:01] <IT_Sean> - the purchase cost
[3:01] <a_c_r> haha.
[3:01] <a_c_r> maybe I'll list mine on the ebay
[3:02] <Wolfram74> yeah, if you wanted to go about it honorably
[3:02] <a_c_r> Sell it on IRC.
[3:02] <BenO> Hexxeh, Aw man... "3:19:10 Rendering line 32 of 384, 180 supersamples"
[3:03] <danieldaniel> someone should make an auction
[3:03] <BenO> Hexxeh, I figure the softfp will take 35 hours+
[3:03] <danieldaniel> and then take like a $5 profit or something
[3:03] <danieldaniel> And donate the rest made
[3:04] <pir2> but is $5 worth going to the back of the que?
[3:04] <danieldaniel> pir2: true

[3:04] * Syliss (~Syliss@ Quit (Quit: Syliss)
[3:04] <Hexxeh> BenO: it's looking like maybe 6-7 hours for hardfp
[3:05] <tpresence> but it will get better when the OS' do what they are supposed to be doing
[3:05] <danieldaniel> I'm definitely not doing it
[3:05] * Hexxeh resists the urge to rant about how developers should have got the initial batch in order to get a head start on making things work well before users got them and were just disappointed/whined
[3:05] <tpresence> lol
[3:06] <tpresence> the whole launch has been not so good
[3:06] <tpresence> from the day of the "orders" until today so far
[3:06] <a_c_r> Launch is fine.
[3:06] <Wolfram74> it certainly could have gone smoother
[3:06] <a_c_r> People just be impatient
[3:06] <Wolfram74> but part of me thinks that this is really kind of standard, but they're just being more open about it
[3:06] <tpresence> you say that with your pi in hand :D
[3:06] <a_c_r> yep
[3:06] <BenO> Hexxeh, That is a serious speed up - hardfp armv6 debian should've been the reference distro

[3:07] <ted__> Hexxewh where'd you get the hardfp distro from?
[3:08] <ted__> *Hexxeh
[3:08] <tpresence> its easy to be not for profit and be for profit
[3:08] <ted__> is it from that dude in the forum?
[3:08] <a_c_r> Hell, Apple does this on a regular basis and still has launch insanity and undersupply.
[3:08] <BenO> Hexxeh, I agree strongly with your resisted rant, but I think it was more to do with just not knowing who was a 'developer'. Also, some groups they approached said 'no thanks' - word of mouth, and no idea who was approached
[3:08] <Hexxeh> ted__: self built from the raspian packages
[3:08] <Hexxeh> BenO: they did, because they sent them to developers
[3:08] <tpresence> I never got a note that it was ready
[3:08] <tpresence> just "pay now"
[3:08] <BenO> a_c_r, true but there's a little bit of marketing in that
[3:08] <ted__> right, that's what i meant
[3:08] <Hexxeh> BenO: let people apply
[3:08] <danieldaniel> tpresence: Yeah, thats what I meant
[3:08] <BenO> Hexxeh, I agree with that
[3:08] <tpresence> oh ok
[3:08] <ted__> so can we compile _any_ source for ARMv6+harfp then?
[3:08] <danieldaniel> How do I find my serial number?
[3:09] <ted__> is it just compiler flags or is it more than that
[3:09] <Hexxeh> ted__: with the appropriate toolchain, sure
[3:09] <ted__> glorious.
[3:09] <Hexxeh> BenO: let devs prove they deserve one, then select as many devs as there are in the first batch to send them to
[3:09] <Hexxeh> if devs can share, even better
[3:09] <BenO> Hexxeh, I pestered Eben last year about it, laying some serious hints when we sat next to each other at a conf dinner. nothing ;)
[3:09] <tpresence> lol
[3:10] <ukscone> BenO did you offer a bribe?

[3:10] <passstab> i gave them a $35 bribe
[3:11] <passstab> still waiting :(
[3:11] <IT_Sean> you have to do better to that to get bumped to the top of the queue
[3:11] <BenO> ukscone, I came very close to bribing - I tried to see if I could get a board for Dev8D - no dice ;)

[3:12] <a_c_r> (for the hardware corollary to rule34)
[3:12] <tpresence> I need audio to just work at all, and a better res than 1168x628
[3:12] <ted__> i was reading some twitter conversations today... someone got XBMC working but couldn't do 1080p, only 720
[3:12] <ted__> :/
[3:12] <ukscone> BenO i used the puppy dog eyes and whinging -- worked great
[3:12] <ted__> i think 1080p+audio is too much
[3:12] <ukscone> well that and being sooper awesome
[3:12] <a_c_r> ted__: noo.
[3:12] <ted__> i wll find the thread one sec
[3:13] <a_c_r> rendering their 1080p test video on the pi used <10% cpu
[3:13] <tpresence> with the raspbmc stuff they advertised, they should hope not :D
[3:13] <BenO> ukscone, bah - no fair. I may have failed because I was trying to chat up Liz too ;)
[3:13] <ted__> that was without audio though
[3:13] <ted__> yes?
[3:13] <a_c_r> yes
[3:13] <BenO> (There was wine. Free wine)
[3:13] <BenO> ted__, Yep
[3:13] <ukscone> BenO: yes that would be a nono although i did stand guard over liz's handbag
[3:13] <a_c_r> i'm pretty sure demod mp3/mp4 audio can be done in <90% of a 700mhz arm
[3:13] <tpresence> since audio doesnt work even now, Im guessing it had to be minus audio
[3:13] <a_c_r> i have mpd working on it
[3:13] <ted__> someone has XBMC+audio working
[3:13] <ted__> using openmax for both
[3:14] <ted__> one sec, looking for thread
[3:14] <a_c_r> my pi was dumping some Led Zeppelin IV yesterday evening
[3:14] <ukscone> liam has a video he will be posting tomorrow as it's really large
[3:14] <ukscone> not sure whether he has it accellerated or not though for xmbc
[3:14] <tpresence> Im willing to be patient
[3:14] <BenO> ted__, sure, the openmax audio is fine
[3:14] <ted__> this dude https://twitter.com/#!/FraserLiam
[3:14] <tpresence> but before I dev anything, I want the OS clean
[3:15] <BenO> ted__, it's getting that connected to the usual linux audio spagetti
[3:15] <ted__> rifght
[3:15] <ted__> i thought XBMC bypassed that
[3:15] <ted__> went straight to openmax
[3:15] <BenO> ted__, yes - so if you want a media center, look to xbmc
[3:15] <tpresence> two things in linux are horrendous
[3:15] <tpresence> audio and wireless
[3:16] <BenO> ted__, if you want to run normal linux apps that produce sound though...
[3:16] <ted__> i think XBMC is more than just a media center install, it's a great full-screen media player
[3:16] <ted__> ah yes
[3:16] <ted__> ALSA
[3:16] <ted__> buggy ^$%^ing ALSA
[3:16] <BenO> http://matt.bottrell.com.au/uploads/Pics/linuxaudio.png <-- diagram of linux audio
[3:16] <ted__> lol
[3:16] <IT_Sean> bloody hell
[3:16] <IT_Sean> could that be any MORE confusing?
[3:16] <tpresence> anyone figure out how to enable ssh in this new debian?
[3:17] <BenO> however, it shows why alsa is key to getting most things supported

[3:29] <tpresence> which OS
[3:29] <dipstick> ofc
[3:29] <abhatnag> Fedora 16
[3:29] <tpresence> mine shows as fat32 and ext4
[3:29] <danieldaniel> Woah
[3:30] <tpresence> I didnt do fedora
[3:30] <danieldaniel> 350000 preorders
[3:30] <abhatnag> hmm, should I preformat it to ext4?
[3:30] <abhatnag> and then dd
[3:30] <tpresence> shouldnt matter
[3:30] <tpresence> dd will undo all of that
[3:30] <dipstick> dd is bit by bit copy
[3:30] <tpresence> its a disk image not partitions
[3:30] <a_c_r> it should be vfat,ext4 & swap... as I recall.
[3:30] <abhatnag> ah I see, hmm
[3:30] <dipstick> danieldaniel: where you find that?
[3:30] <danieldaniel> http://www.slashgear.com/raspberry-pi-pre-orders-reach-350000-19223701/
[3:31] <tpresence> I didnt do fedora (cause I loathe it :D)
[3:31] <abhatnag> you guys think it could be a Fedora specific problem?
[3:31] <abhatnag> tpresence: haha, why
[3:31] <a_c_r> although, I do think that was on deb & arch
[3:31] <tpresence> I know both arch and debian (multiple revs) worked for me
[3:31] <tpresence> I think the fedora maintainers are morons
[3:31] <a_c_r> can't recall what fedora partition table looked like
[3:31] <tpresence> arch had no swap
[3:31] <a_c_r> I've had all three images working though.
[3:31] <abhatnag> tpresence: I know some fedora maintaners, they're all nice people :)
[3:31] <a_c_r> ok. swap to SD seems kinda dumb.
[3:32] <tpresence> stated that if you cant do what you want in 224M you are using the wrong hardware
[3:32] <abhatnag> well, time to try another dd
[3:32] <tpresence> which is idiotic
[3:32] <ted__> the people that did the fedora rpi remix seemed to make a huge deal about it and released a pretty buggy build
[3:32] <ted__> and haven't said a word since
[3:32] <a_c_r> fedora has issues
[3:32] <a_c_r> wouldn't even load X
[3:32] <tpresence> abhat: Mother Theresa was awesome as human, but I wouldnt want her maintaining a linux distro :D
[3:32] <a_c_r> but the ?? demos compiled and ran
[3:32] <abhatnag> ted__: yeah, there was a backlog from what I heard. It loaded X pretty well in a few demos I saw
[3:32] <a_c_r> all the openmax headers were there
[3:33] <ted__> hmm
[3:33] <abhatnag> tpresence: going to reuse that one, thanks
[3:33] <a_c_r> i basically booted fedora to see if sound worked. it didnt, so i deleted it. back to debian
[3:33] <tpresence> feel free :D
[3:33] <ted__> i wish we could combine the functional bits from fedora with raspbian
[3:33] <ted__> the hardfp
[3:33] <danieldaniel> is cardboard OK for it to run on?
[3:33] <ted__> raspbian = the rpi distro of the future
[3:33] <tpresence> I want to know how they hosed up video from 4-13 to 4-19 on debian
[3:34] <a_c_r> tpresence: hosed up?
[3:34] <abhatnag> brb, going to try this using ImageWrite from Ubuntu

[3:35] <a_c_r> oh
[3:35] <a_c_r> that

[3:36] <danieldaniel> ok, one more question
[3:36] <danieldaniel> Is it OK if its elevated?
[3:36] <tpresence> maybe its a firmware issue?
[3:36] <danieldaniel> So that it doesn't touch anything?
[3:36] <a_c_r> it wasn't that small, but there was a border
[3:36] <tpresence> really?
[3:36] <a_c_r> it could be used if people are getting weird issues after plugging into an HDTV
[3:37] <tpresence> mine should have gone to at least 720p
[3:37] <a_c_r> what they used to call overscan or some such nonsense
[3:37] <dipstick> danieldaniel: I put hdds directly on metal and fabric surfaces, as long as nothing can short, it's ok
[3:37] <danieldaniel> dipstick: Ok, thanks!
[3:37] <tpresence> yeah, the old ver was too large but config.txt adjustments fixed it
[3:37] <tpresence> I put rubber feet on my pi
[3:37] <a_c_r> would it be too nerdy if I took my laptop to the park?
[3:38] <tpresence> they couldnt go in the corners because of the pins
[3:38] <tpresence> but it works perfectly

[3:43] <dipstick> broadcast power?
[3:43] <tpresence> yeah
[3:43] <tpresence> ye ole tesla power
[3:43] <dipstick> like the wifi radio stuff?
[3:43] <tpresence> similar
[3:44] <dipstick> I'm not sure what you mean by this...
[3:45] <ted__> the idea of having electricity flowing though the air makes people nervous
[3:45] <tpresence> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Broadcast_power
[3:45] <tpresence> far older
[3:45] <danieldaniel> I just made a really bad case
[3:45] <dipstick> ah
[3:45] <tpresence> if they had any idea whats flowing through the air they would probably be less nervous
[3:45] <dipstick> luls
[3:45] <a_c_r> Yes. This was a good idea. Glare isn't even an issue.
[3:46] <dipstick> I'm not sure if they even know it exists.
[3:46] <dipstick> they don't even understand how cell phones work.
[3:46] <tpresence> but they still accept the "wirelessness" of it
[3:47] <tpresence> if they had any clue at all
[3:47] <ted__> i STILL see flyers up now and then for mothers tryingto get wifi banned from school
[3:47] <ted__> "it's hurting our children!"

[3:47] <ted__> you'd be surprised at how packed full the spectrum is
[3:47] <dipstick> like somehow, the amount of data stored on the phone slows it down. it's all flash based, there's no mentionable seeking.
[3:48] <tpresence> wont put microwaves in their houses
[3:48] <ted__> taking out some wifi
[3:48] <ted__> is not going to change that
[3:48] <pir2> turnns out there isnt enough juice in the usb port to run a vfd
[3:48] <shirro> same retard mothers are killing the herd immunity by not vaccinating
[3:48] <tpresence> get a powered hub
[3:48] * wej (~j@ Quit (Ping timeout: 260 seconds)
[3:48] <tpresence> the pi can only do 100mA on usb
[3:48] <ted__> taking a basic class in wireless communication really showed me how stupid some people are
[3:49] <ted__> question - does anyone know why the pi's USB ports don't draw power from the mains adapter?
[3:49] <ted__> 100 mA isn't exactly USB spec
[3:49] <pir2> yeah vfd draws ~ 300
[3:49] <a_c_r> ??
[3:49] <pir2> 100mA is usb
[3:49] <ted__> isn't it 500 mA?
[3:49] <tpresence> depends
[3:49] <dipstick> uh, the 5v rail is tired directly to power >.<
[3:49] <dipstick> tied*
[3:49] <pir2> you have to negioatiate 500?
[3:49] <ted__> "A device may draw a maximum of 5 unit loads (500 mA) from a port in USB 2.0;"
[3:50] <pir2> s/\?/\+/
[3:50] <ted__> but we're stuck at max 100 mA?
[3:50] <tpresence> I think thats because of the usb power
[3:50] <dipstick> I don't think the pi limits the current like a modern mobo.
[3:50] <tpresence> keep in mind
[3:50] <tpresence> you already drive alot of stuff via usb on the pi
[3:50] <tpresence> ethernet and other modules
[3:50] <tpresence> draw power as well
[3:51] <dipstick> hint hint, attach it to a computer psu on the 5v (red) wire and get LOTs of AMPS!!! mwahahaha!!!!
[3:51] <ted__> heh
[3:51] <tpresence> since the usb power adapter is 500mA, it cant feed all of that to the USB ports
[3:51] <ted__> ah i see
[3:51] <tpresence> they sent me the euro adapter
[3:51] <ted__> just seems silly to have two 5V adapter side by side for the pi and the hub
[3:52] <tpresence> ted: agreed, but its a design thing with the pi
[3:52] <tpresence> I think they wanted to ensure it was low poer
[3:52] <tpresence> power
[3:52] * RITRedbeard (~RITReadbe@t410.student.rit.edu) has joined #raspberrypi
[3:52] <dipstick> couldn't the pi draw power from the device port if the hub sent power to it?
[3:52] <tpresence> its one way
[3:53] <ted__> pi draws more than usb spec though
[3:53] <tpresence> multiple grounds, and other nasty things
[3:53] <ted__> maybe one of those 2 -> 1 adapters

[5:22] <abhatnag> hmm, some people have reported temps in excess of 50 degrees here: http://www.raspberrypi.org/forum/general-discussion/cases-for-the-raspberry-pi/page-53
[5:22] <abhatnag> perhaps a fan is advisable
[5:22] * passstab (~coplon@c-68-80-37-73.hsd1.pa.comcast.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[5:24] <des2> before a fan you would just epoxy a heat sink on it.
[5:24] <shirro> if temperature was an issue they would probably put a heatsink on the SoC instead of soldering ram on top.
[5:24] <abhatnag> btw, checkout this solid case someone designed: http://solidworksbootcamp.com/raspberry-pi-board-b-enclosure/
[5:24] <des2> but yeah as shirro points out there's ram over the chip
[5:26] <abhatnag> des2: wouldn't a simple fan in the box be an easier solution than the heatsink? it would just keep the internals of the box moderately cool

[5:28] <des2> In a metal case with lots of holes in it.
[5:28] <des2> Convection would be enough to cool the RPi
[5:29] <abhatnag> hmm, okay, that's good to know; I was thikning of taking the altoids route
[5:29] <des2> There are people here that have argued that the RPi cases don't even need holes
[5:30] <des2> I'm skeptical of that but they make reasonable arguments.
[5:30] <des2> The Intel D510MO board uses about 12 watts fairly constantly
[5:30] <abhatnag> true, the forum link I posted above had some people showing concern in no ventilation scenarios
[5:31] <des2> The Rpi uses < 4 watts
[5:31] <abhatnag> if someone has there's in a room in an air conditioned room, it will probably do better than one outside on a sunny day
[5:31] <abhatnag> yup
[5:31] <des2> http://www.mini-box.com/M350-universal-mini-itx-enclosure
[5:32] <des2> That's the case I use with the Intel board.
[5:32] <des2> No cooling and I don't have an airconditioned room.
[5:32] <des2> Just a metal case with lots of holes.

[5:44] <shirro> There is a temp sensor according to a broadcom person. I just can't see it documented. Might see if they added it to the kernel source next. http://www.raspberrypi.org/forum/general-discussion/safe-running-temperature/#p36138
[5:47] <abhatnag> ah cool; yeah I've heard Broadcom has been reluctant to publicize some of this stuff.
[5:53] <des2> Yeah I saw that post but it didn't sem to mention any halting temperature
[5:54] <des2> It wasn't clear whether the OS had to monitor the temp and make a decision to halt or the chip would automatically shutdown

[5:57] <shirro> When they are shipping properly I am sure someone will put one in an oven and find out. Cheap hardware makes for fun destructive tests.
[5:59] <des2> Then we'll find out if it belnds.
[5:59] <des2> blends
[6:00] <des2> We have run them a prolonged time at 80 degr. Celsius in an oven with no problems.
[6:00] <des2> The Theta-J with an airflow of 0m/sec is ~35 C/W. This is with a PoP memory on top. So with a 1W power consumption your max. ambient temperature is about 120-35=85 Degrees Celsius. (185 F) By that time you should probably worry about other things in your garage.

[6:47] <des2> Have you tried it on another computer ?
[6:47] <peteyg_> Yep, works fine
[6:47] <des2> What power supply are you using with the PI ?
[6:49] <peteyg_> des2: 5v 700ma BlackBerry charger
[6:50] <des2> Maybe a bit marginal.
[6:50] <des2> for a 95 ma adapter
[6:50] <peteyg_> I have a 1.8A charger lying around, could give that a try, but would the board be able to handle 1A+ power draw?
[6:50] <des2> The RPI is resettable fuzed at 1 amp
[6:51] <des2> It will only draw what it needs
[6:51] <des2> so it
[6:51] <peteyg_> Ah, okay. Cool, so I'm relatively safe... :)

[13:20] <Purgox> True.
[13:20] <Purgox> So the modules from firmware/ are basically useless?

[14:50] <Hexxeh> doesn't appear to
[14:50] <Hexxeh> i've got one pi running softfp and one running hardfp to test this

[14:52] <Hexxeh> added VC libs support to rpi-updater, woo
[14:52] <shirro> I think Tag_ABI_VFP_args: VFP registers means that fpu args are passed in the fpu registers. There seems to be a clear difference between the stuff in opt/vc/libs and hardfloat/opt/vc/libs
[14:53] <Hexxeh> oh, yes, there is
[14:53] <Hexxeh> but look at the ilclient in hello_pi/libs in both

[15:04] <shirro> I think Tag_ABI_HardFP_use has nothing to do with the ABI but means the CPU supports single and double precision hardware floating point. It should appear in all armv6 compiled libs. And I suspect that unlike Debian the RPF are compiling for armv6 for either ABI
[15:05] <shirro> Well all amv6+vpu stuff
[15:06] <shirro> I think the less obviously named ABI_VFP_args is what tells you about the ABI becuase it says if vfp args are being passed in vfp registers

[15:09] <Iota> Wrong channel.
[15:11] <shirro> I think Tag_ABI_HardFP_use probably means it has been compiled with something like -mfpu=vpf and the presence of Tag_ ABI_VFP_args is the indicator for -mhard-float. Both of which are quite handy to be able to check without decompiling stuff.

[15:14] <Purgox> Honk honk
[15:15] <shirro> Looks like it for ABI yes. I guess you should check that VFP_args is VFP registers but I have not seen it say integer registers. So far it only shows up for armhf stuff as far as I can tell

[15:38] <Purgox> Fun fact is, it's most likely the easiest to install.
[15:38] <Hexxeh> It's really not
[15:39] <Hexxeh> Debian is the easiest if you have packages ready made
[15:39] <Purgox> with gentoo you can just straight up download the rootfs
[15:39] <Purgox> no need for debootstrap etc
[15:39] <Hexxeh> you'd need to make it
[15:39] <Hexxeh> don't think anywhere has prebuilt armv6zk stage3 tarballs
[15:39] <Purgox> huh?
[15:39] <Purgox> armv6j is there
[15:40] <Hexxeh> if you were doing gentoo
[15:40] <Hexxeh> the entire point is that it's targeted at your hardware
[15:40] <Hexxeh> so you'd want hardfp and armv6zk, the proper mtune etc
[15:41] <Purgox> well, then after booting you'd just do emerge -U world

[18:23] <SpeedEvil> danieldaniel: what sort of UV
[18:23] <danieldaniel> let me get the piece of paper
[18:23] <Thorn_> yes, 30 minutes of exposure to UV light directly and you will be blind within 96 hours
[18:23] <Thorn_> it's fatal.
[18:23] <Thorn_> i would advise getting medical attention immediately

[20:20] <acfrazier> run SSH as a daemon on startup?
[20:20] <wcchandler> giggsey: you have a writeup on how you're doing that? please
[20:21] <giggsey> wcchandler: trial and error :P

[20:26] <wcchandler> before you made the debian image did you do the ssh magic to make it work on boot?
[20:26] <giggsey> No, but have just done that using Windows to edit the boot partition
[20:27] <FZombie> Anyone plan to use their raspi for amateur radio?
[20:27] <tpresence> just have to do update-rc.d ssh start 20 2 3 4 5 . stop 20 0 1 6 .
[20:27] <wcchandler> FZombie: planning for the zombie-pocalypse?
[20:27] <FZombie> I have not gotten mine yet, im sure it will take forever and a day, but I was thinking of making a image with cool radio tools.
[20:27] <Thorn_> like a phillips screwdriver?
[20:28] <FZombie> zompocalypse? no. Fun with radios just runs in the family
[20:28] <tpresence> using gnuradio?
[20:28] <BenO> FZombie, A few people have mentioned it - it can run fldigi with a USB soundcard

[21:42] <BenO> Cheery, everything in /boot is in https://github.com/raspberrypi/firmware/tree/master/boot - the GPU grabs start.elf and loads that to begin the bootstrapping
[21:43] <giggsey> BenO: another sdcard worked fine
[21:43] <Cheery> BenO: I'm just fiddling around.
[21:43] <BenO> giggsey, cool - I had a similar issue

[21:43] <giggsey> Any hope for the other sdcard?
[21:43] <BenO> giggsey, It's a new one on me though - usually with embedded devices, SD's will either boot or not boot, not randomly boot :)
[21:44] <BenO> Cheery, Ah okay :)
[21:44] <BenO> Cheery, Dig away - interested to see what you find!
[21:45] <BenO> giggsey, as a boot card for the Pi? I wouldn't hold my breath. However, there is likely nothing wrong with the card at all
[21:45] <BenO> giggsey, I swapped one of my semi-booting cards for the one in my 3DS and now both Pi and 3DS work fine :)
[21:46] <giggsey> I think I may have had the lock tab on, not too sure
[21:46] <giggsey> Will check in a few mins :P
[21:46] <Cheery> BenO: I'm about to study the boot partition now though.
[21:47] <Cheery> BenO: I figure it's reasonable to expect that boot sector code is something made by whatever software you use to create the disk partitions.

[21:53] <BenO> Cheery, as far as I've gathered: power on -> video core (vc) wakes and tries to find 'start.elf' in the first partition (vfat only!) and loads that (2mb?) into it's RAM. It uses that to determine the RAM split between CPU and vc
[21:53] <BenO> arm*_start.elf are just different start.elf's with mem splits
[21:53] <BenO> 224 -> 224Mb for CPU, rest for vc
[21:54] <BenO> 128 -> 50:50 split of the RAM

[23:28] <{p120d16y}> I hope, it just seemed like a very small batch last time, I haven't seen numbers but I hope to see actual production

[23:30] * machine1 (machine1@pool-74-111-197-200.lsanca.fios.verizon.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[23:30] <wcchandler> if they made 10k and it costs them $35 to make, someone invested $350,000
[23:30] <wcchandler> that's a lot of money
[23:30] <zgreg> wcchandler: hopefully it costs less than that :)
[23:31] <BenO> wcchandler, there was a point where they were thinking about asking potential devs to chip in for the component costs, but in the end, they got enough startup funding for the first 10k
[23:31] <wcchandler> i'm assuming so since the price difference between a and b was $10 for an ethernet port... which probably only cost $0.15
[23:31] <BenO> wcchandler, It's that second chip - does the extra USB port + Ethernet
[23:32] <wcchandler> ohh.. no usb either?
[23:32] <zgreg> also, the ethernet connector likely is pretty expensive

[23:34] <BenO> It's not quite enough current unfortunately
[23:34] <{p120d16y}> I'm just assuming from the trend that they are about to blow up. so I tend to think big funding will creep out of the woodwork
[23:34] <BenO> It idles with just keyboard and SD at 310-340mA
[23:35] <BenO> A quick apt-get install can push it to 400mA easy
[23:35] <zgreg> the pi is not made for efficiency
[23:35] <BenO> indeed
[23:36] <zgreg> power regulation is implemented as cheap as possible, not as good as possible :)
[23:36] <SpeedEvil> Did a_c_r_ report on the dropout voltage of the Pi?
[23:36] <Dagger2> wcchandler: the ethernet jack has integrated magnetics and is thus surprisingly expensive... e.g. http://www.sparkfun.com/products/8534
