[0:03] <passstab> anything w/o regestering?
[0:03] <wcchandler> ugh... doesn't like my nfs volume... but it saw it and tried to connect.
[0:04] <wcchandler> other clients can connect just fine
[0:04] <Cheery> passstab: torrents of course!
[0:04] <wcchandler> for hosts i have *
[0:04] <danieldaniel> i can't do torrents :(

[0:13] <flaushy> hej, i got a pi now, but nearly no time next week. Is there any need for remote access to it?
[0:13] <passstab> shit
[0:13] <flaushy> (compilation/whatever?)

[0:29] <Cheery> you know why I'm so eager to get on osdeving to raspberry pi?
[0:30] <wcchandler> woot, nfs booting
[0:30] <Cheery> especially after this day, when I studied it further
[0:30] <Thorn_> cuz u smell like fake cherry?

[0:31] <passstab> hi shirro
[0:32] <wcchandler> does any pi reboot correctly from the OS? i.e. running "reboot" ?
[0:32] <shirro> morning
[0:32] <passstab> no
[0:32] <passstab> is not morning
[0:32] <danieldaniel> too large timeout requested for CMD38
[0:33] * Milos|Netbook (~Milos@pdpc/supporter/student/milos) Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[0:33] <danieldaniel> any idea how to fix that
[0:34] <SpeedEvil> increase the max timeout.
[0:34] <danieldaniel> how?
[0:34] <SpeedEvil> grep "too large timeout" in the kernel.
[0:34] <danieldaniel> how?
[0:34] <SpeedEvil> Find the test. Find where the comparator is set - patch it
[0:35] <danieldaniel> it spams it with errors
[0:35] <danieldaniel> like, when its bootin
[0:35] * ukscone (~Russell@cpe-68-173-234-162.nyc.res.rr.com) has left #raspberrypi
[0:35] <danieldaniel> booting*
[0:37] <danieldaniel> its something with my SD card
[0:37] <danieldaniel> great

[0:48] <danieldaniel> :D
[0:48] * Milos|Netbook (Milos@pdpc/supporter/student/milos) Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[0:48] <passstab> want it?
[0:48] <danieldaniel> passstab: can you send it to me?
[0:48] <danieldaniel> yeah
[0:48] <danieldaniel> sorry
[0:48] <danieldaniel> one more time
[0:48] <danieldaniel> XD
[0:49] <danieldaniel> thanks!
[0:49] <passstab> i have a testing image also if you want
[0:49] <danieldaniel> nah
[0:49] <danieldaniel> Thanks though

[0:52] <passstab> jus slowly
[0:52] <danieldaniel> ok
[0:52] * passstab turns of transmission
[0:52] <passstab> off
[0:53] <passstab> i don't know what you need to do for the kernel tho
[0:53] <a_c_r_> why would voltage supplied to the pi out of a USB port on my macbook not drop, but the voltage out of my agilent power supply drop off fairly significantly?

[0:58] <a_c_r_> aha. my hacked together cable has a voltage drop of .35V
[0:59] <passstab> danieldaniel, BTW the username,password is root,{space}
[0:59] <danieldaniel> ok
[0:59] <danieldaniel> root and space?
[1:00] <passstab> yip
[1:00] <danieldaniel> ok
[1:00] <passstab> and you might need to set up sources.lst
[1:00] <danieldaniel> ok
[1:00] <wcchandler> BenO: yep :)
[1:00] <passstab> as well as a user ofc

[1:01] * passstab wishes he could remember where he got the instructions to make this image
[1:02] <a_c_r_> holy crap. the quality of a usb cable is most definitely quantifiable and has a drastic effect on ?? supply voltage measured between TP2 & TP1
[1:04] <Cheery> it's a bit picky?

[1:07] <danieldaniel> anyone know where to get the openelec image?
[1:07] <danieldaniel> Want to try that too

[1:08] <passstab> yea i looked
[1:08] <passstab> found nothing
[1:08] <danieldaniel> me neither
[1:08] <danieldaniel> :(
[1:08] <passstab> http://www.cnx-software.com/2011/10/18/raspberry-pi-emulator-in-ubuntu-with-qemu/
[1:08] <passstab> thats what i used
[1:09] <passstab> but i skipped up until Generating ARMEL Debian Squeeze Rootfs
[1:09] <passstab> maybe you should use his image :P
[1:09] <passstab> (at the bottum)
[1:10] <danieldaniel> trying
[1:10] <danieldaniel> Also, what do I do with the .ext2?
[1:11] <passstab> you download is 22% finished
[1:11] <passstab> idk
[1:11] <danieldaniel> i downloaded the one from that site
[1:12] <danieldaniel> i stopped the one from you
[1:12] <danieldaniel> i got it from the site
[1:12] <passstab> good
[1:12] <danieldaniel> but what do I do with it :(
[1:13] <passstab> probably put it on the sd?
[1:13] * danieldaniel tries
[1:13] <danieldaniel> where?
[1:13] <danieldaniel> oh
[1:13] <danieldaniel> i know
[1:14] <passstab> yea read the end of those instructions
[1:14] <Cheery> could probe what there are on hardware in raspberry..

[1:14] <danieldaniel> doesn't help much
[1:14] <danieldaniel> its a file system
[1:14] <danieldaniel> '
[1:15] <danieldaniel> I am trying to do dd on it
[1:15] <danieldaniel> it seems to be working
[1:16] * shirro (~shirro@pdpc/supporter/active/shirro) Quit (Quit: shirro)
[1:17] <passstab> kool
[1:17] * passstab will probably try that someday
[1:18] <danieldaniel> although, "it seems to be working" is always a bad thing to say
[1:18] <danieldaniel> the next thing you know
[1:18] <danieldaniel> BOOM
[1:19] <passstab> is that still hypothetical?
[1:20] <danieldaniel> the ext2 and dd?
[1:20] <Cheery> seems like I can connect both UART and TTL into raspberry
[1:20] <danieldaniel> i think its working
[1:20] <Cheery> and I guess I will. :)

[1:23] <danieldaniel> I do
[1:23] <danieldaniel> if I can find my multimeter
[1:23] * phantoxeD (~destroy@a95-92-89-24.cpe.netcabo.pt) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:23] <a_c_r_> can you probe TP1 & TP2 while its booted and relatively idle?
[1:23] <danieldaniel> I can't boot it up
[1:23] <a_c_r_> oh
[1:23] <danieldaniel> when I get it to boot up
[1:23] <danieldaniel> I will XD
[1:23] <a_c_r_> ok... how about just not booted but powered on?
[1:24] <danieldaniel> does there have to be an SD card?
[1:24] <a_c_r_> nah
[1:24] <danieldaniel> I'm kinda in the middle of a dd
[1:24] <danieldaniel> ok
[1:24] <danieldaniel> let me pull out my multimeter

[1:25] <danieldaniel> do I use the red or the blue one?
[1:25] <danieldaniel> and what setting?
[1:25] <a_c_r_> blue?
[1:25] <a_c_r_> voltage
[1:25] <a_c_r_> range to capture ~5V
[1:25] <Hydrazine> 4.69V between them here
[1:25] <a_c_r_> ground on TP2
[1:25] <a_c_r_> k
[1:25] <danieldaniel> ok
[1:25] <danieldaniel> one sec
[1:26] <danieldaniel> oh
[1:26] <a_c_r_> I'm getting 4.61
[1:26] <danieldaniel> I meant red and black
[1:26] <a_c_r_> and at the uUSB port, 4.745ish
[1:26] <a_c_r_> which means I'm getting 250mV drop on the usb cable/connector

[1:27] <danieldaniel> I can't find tp2
[1:27] <a_c_r_> well, loss is loss. I'm just surprised its that high!
[1:27] <a_c_r_> tp2 is between hdmi & usb power supply
[1:27] <Hydrazine> danieldaniel: between the TV-out and the pin headers
[1:27] <a_c_r_> err tp1
[1:27] <Hydrazine> -_-
[1:27] <a_c_r_> yeah, what Hydrazine said
[1:28] <a_c_r_> oh well, either way. we'll just live with it.
[1:29] <Cheery> I have one USB to TTL cable, which came along nerdkit
[1:29] <danieldaniel> I'm getting around 4.7

[1:34] <danieldaniel> the dd didn't work
[1:34] <danieldaniel> :(
[1:35] <a_c_r_> haha.
[1:35] <a_c_r_> ok
[1:36] <a_c_r_> at around 4-4.1 supply voltage, the SMSC chip drops out
[1:36] <a_c_r_> core voltage as measured at C16 is still ~1.2V
[1:36] <a_c_r_> I really need a serial console to test this any further
[1:37] <a_c_r_> i guess something repetitive on the HDMI would work too
[1:37] <a_c_r_> but if I lose USB and network at 4V, it'll be kinda hard to test when the core drops out
[1:38] <passstab> :(
[1:38] <passstab> why not?
[1:39] <SpeedEvil> a_c_r_: not reallt
[1:39] <SpeedEvil> y
[1:39] <SpeedEvil> a_c_r_: audio out, or alternatively simply drop the voltage, and see if it's carried on running

[1:55] <ReggieUK> ftdi in general use a voltage level to drive the IO
[1:56] <Cheery> well my cable is giving me +5V
[1:57] <ReggieUK> then it's not that cable that you linked to :D
[1:57] <a_c_r_> are you powering the ?? with that?
[1:57] <a_c_r_> or just using it for uart
[1:57] <Cheery> of course not. I'm not silly enough for using that for powering :)
[1:57] <ReggieUK> then again, it depends where you're measuring 5v from
[1:57] <ReggieUK> where did you get your cable from?
[1:57] <Cheery> ReggieUK: I have the one from nerdkits
[1:57] <ReggieUK> got a link
[1:58] <Cheery> it gives me +5V between.. were it red or black wires?

[1:58] <Cheery> http://www.nerdkits.com/store/
[1:58] <Cheery> it says: "Assembled and tested USB to Serial adapter with TTL-voltage levels and 4-wire cable"
[1:59] <ReggieUK> Prolific PL2303 chipset
[1:59] <ReggieUK> so its a completely different cable to the one you linked to :)
[1:59] <Cheery> apparently..
[1:59] <Cheery> but also they both are UART?
[1:59] <ReggieUK> I take it you need 3.3v io levels?
[2:00] <ReggieUK> they're both serial :)
[2:00] <a_c_r_> I can't imagine what else it would be
[2:00] <a_c_r_> it uses the pl2303
[2:01] <Cheery> oh.. I need an UART which gives me 3.3v :(
[2:01] <Cheery> so exactly the one I was looking at.. and not this.
[2:02] <ReggieUK> don't panic :)
[2:02] <ReggieUK> you just need a couple of resistors to drop teh voltage level from the TX of the cable to the RX pin of the pi :)
[2:03] <ReggieUK> 3.3k and 1.6k should do it
[2:03] <Cheery> wouldn't it be simpler to buy just 3.3v UART?
[2:04] <ReggieUK> depends how you define simple
[2:04] <Cheery> hmm.. so 3.3k and 1.6k...
[2:04] <Cheery> well I have a breadboard there so I guess I could...
[2:05] <ReggieUK> 3.3k and 1.8k will do it
[2:05] <Cheery> though I don't have 3.3k or 1.8k resistors I guess..
[2:06] <ReggieUK> they don't specifically have to be 3.3k and 1.8k
[2:06] <ReggieUK> but they do need to be the right pair of values to drop from 5v to 3.3v

[2:11] <ReggieUK> I don't think there are any other matching targets in uboot, so someone would be starting from scratch
[2:11] <wcchandler> oh boy
[2:11] <ReggieUK> unless broadcom used 'parts' inside their chip that are used on other parts

[2:22] <BenO> I don't think an old IDE cable works, due to the filled in socket halfway along (IIRC) but floppy cables work fine
[2:23] <Cheery> I'm not sure I find an old floppy cable...
[2:23] <Cheery> unless I make a trip to a recycling station.

[2:27] <hamitron> just buy new
[2:28] <Cheery> yeah.. that may be the answer
[2:28] <Cheery> I'll use the UART to connect rpi to the computer. so that I can write an interactive prompt for osdeving

[2:51] <a_c_r_> yeah
[2:51] <a_c_r_> could be lots of things
[2:51] <SpeedEvil> indeed
[2:51] <SpeedEvil> Some even software fixable.
[2:52] <a_c_r_> perhaps
[2:52] <SpeedEvil> wcchandler: add a user on your own box - copy the passwd and shadow lines over
[2:52] <SpeedEvil> With a proper datasheet :/
[2:53] <SpeedEvil> So you can 'safely' save 20% or so by running it from 4V.
[2:53] <a_c_r_> should have checked the 1v8 regulator output
[2:53] <a_c_r_> 4v seems short-term stable
[2:53] <SpeedEvil> Does it use 5V at all - for anything - internally?
[2:54] <a_c_r_> i assume yes
[2:54] <a_c_r_> if nothing else, for the USB
[2:54] <a_c_r_> there is definitely a 5v going into the broadcom on the schematics
[2:54] <a_c_r_> it takes 5v, 3v3 & 1v8
[2:55] <a_c_r_> then generates 1v2 for the core

[4:12] <BenO> I think the majority of LTSP is wound up in the various scripts

[4:22] <ShiftPlusOne> BenO, nope, the raspi egl library isn't X11 aware, so it needs some extra stuff.... not too much.
[4:22] <wcchandler> nrdb: great!
[4:23] <wcchandler> you happen to have an arm chroot?
[4:23] <ShiftPlusOne> BenO, check the /opt/vc/src hello triangle example.
[4:23] <nrdb> wcchandler, join rip-ltsp
[4:25] <BenO> ShiftPlusOne, I'm guessing bcm_host_init(); is the key bit of secret sauce
[4:26] <BenO> And the vc_* function calls in the init too
[4:26] <ShiftPlusOne> BenO, yup, plus all that vc stuff. I haven't looked too much at that other part yet. Just waiting for the pi first... then getting SDL 1.2 working with GLES on the pi and going from there.
[4:27] <BenO> What have the Q3 SDL libs had done to them already? A quick hack to get Q3 running?
[4:28] <ShiftPlusOne> Q3?
[4:28] <BenO> https://github.com/raspberrypi/quake3/tree/master/lib
[4:28] <ShiftPlusOne> ah right

[4:30] <ShiftPlusOne> BenO, I suppose the advantage of the way I am doing it is that I can use the same lib on x86 (with the mesa es libs) and the pi.
[4:31] <ShiftPlusOne> without needing to modify the code of the software using them.

[4:34] <ShiftPlusOne> BenO, yup, I am not sure how the Q3 code looks, I can't find all the init stuff while skimming it. So it's quite possible it will work on x86 as well and my hopes and dreams for my sdl_gles port are pointless.
[4:34] <BenO> ShiftPlusOne, It looks like most of it has been pushed into the SDL libs
[4:35] <ShiftPlusOne> excellent
[4:35] <BenO> .. for which I can't spot the source for
[4:35] <ShiftPlusOne> except that the standard desktop version SDL still doesn't work with ES without patches.

[6:18] <mkopack> Anyhow, time for bed. Later gang!

[6:21] <mozzwald> BenO: my problem doesn't seem to be with storage devices, but network devices.
[6:22] <mozzwald> i need to hookup serial and log kernel output
[6:22] <mozzwald> dmesg gives a lot of DEBUG:handle_hc_chhltd_intr_dma:: XactErr without NYET/NAK/ACK

[6:29] <ShiftPlusOne> I'd check if you bank account has been charged
[6:30] <shirro> It says shipped today in my order so I think I can safely assume it is on its way.
[6:30] <ShiftPlusOne> It says so on mine as well
[6:30] <shirro> Congrats
[6:31] <ShiftPlusOne> But it hasn't shown up on netbank yet
[6:31] <ShiftPlusOne> so I am trying not to get my hopes up
[6:31] <shirro> Visa takes awhile to show up sometimes for me
[6:32] <ShiftPlusOne> I just bought a book for my kindle and that's already on my statement
[6:32] <ShiftPlusOne> ah well, we'll see tomorrow I guess
[6:32] <shirro> Probably Wednesday for me. SA country :-(
[6:33] <cjbaird> Still "Processing" here ;_;
[6:33] <cjbaird> "Complete" on element14.com.au means "We've handed it over to Australia Post and it's no longer our problem" :)
[6:34] <a_c_r> mmmm, quake 3 lives
[6:34] <shirro> For the record my order time was 29/02/2012 17:12. If you beat that in .au you are probably due for a package
[6:34] <ShiftPlusOne> cjbaird, they don't ship through australia post, they fedex stuff.
[6:34] <ShiftPlusOne> cjbaird, unless that has changed in the last few months
[6:35] <ShiftPlusOne> actually it wasn't fedex, it was DHL
[6:35] <ShiftPlusOne> IIRC
[6:35] <shirro> Fedex will hand off to AAE for me.

[6:36] <shirro> ShiftPlusOne: what was your order time?
[6:36] <ShiftPlusOne> 4 minutes and 25 seconds
[6:37] <shirro> Nice. cjbaird what about yours?
[6:37] <a_c_r> So... for the record, q3 at 1920x1200 is not high performance.
[6:37] <cjbaird> shirro: 06/03/2012 20:35 ... I'll probably have a wait. :)
[6:37] <ShiftPlusOne> 29/02/2012 17:04:25
[6:37] <ShiftPlusOne> yeah, looks like you'll still have a bit of a wait
[6:38] <cjbaird> My E14 orders have been delivered 'next working day' by AusPost..
[6:38] <cjbaird> I
[6:38] <shirro> a_c_r: I think they said with the original video that they were not happy with the performance and felt it should be able to go faster.
[6:38] <cjbaird> I've got a new Weller WES51 coming tomorrow :D .. (my DSE T2000 that I bought in 1986 died this morning ;_;)
[6:39] <a_c_r> shirro: cool
[6:39] <ShiftPlusOne> cjbaird, nice... have you seen the crazy new one from Weller? With a usb port and all kinds of crazy features
[6:40] <cjbaird> S+1: no I haven't; googling now
[6:42] <ShiftPlusOne> cjbaird, WX2
[6:42] <a_c_r> usb soldering station?
[6:42] <ShiftPlusOne> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GaPlQBIlwXA
[6:43] <ShiftPlusOne> no... normal soldering station with a usb port to load/save settings or something
[6:43] <cjbaird> Someone I noticed while researching for a new soldering station was a lot of models having temperature password protection-- I had to ask what the hell that was for. :)
[6:44] <a_c_r> cjbaird: my hakko 927 e.s.d. has that
[6:44] <a_c_r> its so your assembly monkeys can't fry stuff.
[6:44] <cjbaird> gulag tools.

[8:57] <shirro> I know that you can get config from proc if it is enabled but I think it would be nice to have both config and System.map in /boot
[8:58] <ShiftPlusOne> /boot doesn't really have much meaning on pi

[9:34] <_sundar_> friggle, does xbmc rely on X11?
[9:34] <shirro> I just got an email from Element14 confirming mine has shipped.
[9:34] <_sundar_> can it be run standalone without X11?
[9:34] <ShiftPlusOne> friggle, while you're around, what does fist32k do exactly and what do the kernel and bootloader parameters for it mean?
[9:35] <_sundar_> shirro, nice when did you place the order?
[9:35] <ShiftPlusOne> *first
[9:35] <shirro> 12 minutes
[9:35] <_sundar_> just 12 minutes before?
[9:35] <shirro> ShiftPlusOne: Better sign the NDA first :-)
[9:37] <shirro> _sundar_: I was on Element 14 Australia (and several other RS/Farnell sites earlier) but I had to resubmit my forms several times so My order didn't get through until 0612 on 29th. But that seemed to be good enough for Australia and probably not by much.
[9:38] <ShiftPlusOne> shirro, it doesn't look like anything too fancy or secret... maybe data telling the bootloader how to load and start the kernel or something.
[9:38] <shirro> Just dissasemble it :-)
[9:39] <ShiftPlusOne> shirro, it didn't look like executable data, but I didn't spend much time on it

[9:42] <shirro> I think it must be magic
[9:42] <ShiftPlusOne> oh, didn't notice an elf header
[9:42] <_sundar_> friggle, thanks. now that is cool
[9:42] <friggle> ShiftPlusOne: I don't actually no. Obviously magic for the Broadcom bootloader...but I don't know details beyond that (I'm not a Broadcom employee)
[9:42] <friggle> *know
[9:42] <_sundar_> what bootloader does rpi use? u-boot?
[9:43] <ShiftPlusOne> _sundar_, a custom broadcom specific bootloader
[9:43] <shirro> _sundar_: nope. the GPU does something mysterious
[9:43] <friggle> _sundar_: there's a teeny tiny bootloader in the GPU ROM, which is just enough to load a larger bootloader from SD, which will set up the viddeo core and finally start the kernel on the arm
[9:44] <_sundar_> ShiftPlusOne, for me i wouldn't mind. but just curious... any hope for u-boot in the future?
[9:44] <friggle> _sundar_: there's no reason you couldn't have the GPU bootloader start u-boot rather than the linux kernel
[9:44] <friggle> but, I'm not sure what they would buy you?
[9:44] <ShiftPlusOne> _sundar_, the 'kernel' loaded by the actual bootloader can be anything... including uboot

[9:45] <_sundar_> so can I mount filesystems over NFS?
[9:46] <_sundar_> as rootfs i mean
[9:46] <friggle> _sundar_: yep
[9:46] <shirro> having spent way too much time pissing about with uboot recently can I just vote for linux early userspace instead
[9:46] <ShiftPlusOne> _sundar_, yes, but you still need an sdcard for the actual kernel, bootloader and kernel parameters
[9:47] <_sundar_> cool. so tftpboot is not supported at the moment?
[9:49] <friggle> nope
[9:50] <_sundar_> thats no problem unless you really are working in the kernel frequently needing to load the new one to the SD card
[9:50] <friggle> but as ShiftPlusOne says, the binary loaded by the gpu bootloader could be anything, including something which grabs the kernel over the network and boots it
[9:50] <shirro> but you have an sd card in the thing that can mount root from nfs or usb and you can put soemthing in an initrd that downloads a kernel via tftp and kexecs it I would guess.
[9:50] <ShiftPlusOne> Haven't heard anything about tftpboot. But I think it's fairly safe to say no, nobody has done that yet.
[9:50] <ShiftPlusOne> it's just a lot easier to use NFS and if you need to, you can update the kernel after booting, then restarting.
[9:50] <ShiftPlusOne> if for whatever reason you don't have physical access to the sdcard
[9:50] <friggle> shirro: yeah
[9:51] <_sundar_> is the ethernet controller connected via USB>

[13:08] <shirro> seems like those testing it killed the kernel with lots of usb. it does well on things with ridiculous amounts of FP. Should be a little better on everything else due to being tuned for 1176jzf-s

[13:10] <techman2> yeah, I'm sure testing will ramp up in the near future
[13:10] <shirro> it beat my 1Ghz A8 on povray benchmarks :-(
[13:12] <techman2> wow really?
[13:12] <techman2> surprising.
[13:12] <Caver> !
[13:13] <shirro> not really. The Cortex A8 has a vfp lite which isn't pipelined. If you were only going to run Povray and nothing else $25 Pis will likely outperform $150 Beagleboard xm and Freescale imx53
[13:14] <Veryevil> but wasn't the A8 running standard armel packages e.g. armv4t compiled?
[13:14] <shirro> Doesn't mean it isn't a lot slower for everything else
[13:14] <techman2> I just wouldn't have thought a newer arch would be weaker in fpu
[13:15] <zgreg> shirro: heh, it's not THAT bad
[13:15] <zgreg> besides, for single-precision FP you can use NEON
[13:15] <shirro> Nope. I was running Debian sid armhf in a chroot. I test wasn't all that scientifically conducted but it looked similar to what people have got from a beagleboard
[13:15] <zgreg> and the RunFast mode can use the NEON unit for singe-precision VFP ops, so you get better without writing actual NEON code
[13:16] <shirro> I tried neon and thinking it would be MUCH faster and it wasn't. Don't know why.
[13:16] <zgreg> did you enable RunFast mode?
[13:16] <zgreg> it needs to be initialized
[13:16] <zgreg> check this:
[13:16] <zgreg> http://pandorawiki.org/Floating_Point_Optimization#VFP-Lite_RunFast
[13:17] <zgreg> but yes, overall it's a pity that the A8 only has the "lite" FPU
[13:17] <shirro> No. I wasn't interested in showing of the A8 to be honest :-) The first run I did was vfp3. The second I just set mfpu=neon. I am no FP expert. Was just fun to see the Pi do well
[13:18] <zgreg> however, most code depends on ALU performance, even code that uses floating-point calculations
[13:19] <zgreg> the FPU on the A9 is *much* better fortunately
[13:21] <zgreg> anyway, floating-point is overrated anyway

[13:27] * nrdb (~neil@ has joined #raspberrypi
[13:27] <zgreg> fALSO: well, the X situation was explained, as far as I know
[13:27] <Caver> quite!
[13:27] <techman2> fALSO: the initial release of 10k was designed to get them into the hands of people who could do that sort of dev work
[13:27] <fALSO> so... a computer to the children learn to program -> but just WHEN ITS READDY
[13:27] <phantoxe> explained when?
[13:27] <shirro> I am much more interested in crashy drivers and reporting bugs than watching videos on XBMC. So I am really happy about any breakage
[13:27] <fALSO> that was just propaganda to sell then ?
[13:27] <zgreg> fALSO: the pi was initially announced as a _development_ platform
[13:28] <fALSO> because from what i understand nothing works
[13:28] <phantoxe> when the first batch of boards was being received?
[13:28] <phantoxe> wtf
[13:28] <zgreg> fALSO: that wil mature in the next few months
[13:28] <zgreg> *will
[13:28] <phantoxe> or years
[13:28] <phantoxe> who cares
[13:28] <fALSO> so why was all that propaganda ... to let the children learn....
[13:28] <zgreg> however, media and the foundation didn't really market it correcty lately
[13:28] <fALSO> "schools are getting it first, etc"
[13:28] <Caver> yes .. this is the dev's release
[13:28] <phantoxe> "it boots up! WOW! that's great"
[13:28] * Lerc (~Lerc@121-74-232-197.telstraclear.net) Quit (Quit: Lerc)
[13:28] <fALSO> nice the leeds school has it first
[13:28] <Caver> the educational release is later
[13:28] <fALSO> now they can put them on the shelft
[13:28] <fALSO> shelf, until it works
[13:28] <fALSO> great!
[13:28] <Caver> aka once things have settled down
[13:29] <phantoxe> "it doesn't do anything useful... but it WORKS! WOWA THAT'S GREAT"
[13:29] <zgreg> fALSO: actually, I expected for people like you :D
[13:29] <wcchandler> are they compiling the armhf on pi's or through qemu?
[13:29] <Caver> hmm well I played with it, and scratch worked great, and they kids loved it
[13:29] <fALSO> i have some kind of sense
[13:29] <zgreg> and it is a bit fault of the marketing
[13:29] <Caver> so that works already
[13:29] <fALSO> marketing hype
[13:30] <zgreg> since the pi was marketed as a finished product in the last few months
[13:30] <fALSO> saying something, and then what happens inst that
[13:30] <shirro> wcchandler: the debian armhf is being compiled on armv7 boards because you can get ones with 1G ram and SATA
[13:30] * Axman6 (~Axman6@pdpc/supporter/student/Axman6) has joined #raspberrypi
[13:30] <wcchandler> shirro: ahh -- is it hexxeh plowing through 'em?
[13:30] <Drazyl> fALSO - when did you learn about the Pi?
[13:31] <fALSO> with all the hype
[13:31] <fALSO> saying it plays quake 3
[13:31] <fALSO> and hd h264
[13:31] <shirro> Hexxeh is plowing through lots of stuff but I think he cross compiled with an intel box. Debian expects to be built natively
[13:31] <fALSO> what they didnt say was that-> without any sound
[13:31] <wcchandler> ahh
[13:31] <fALSO> and that X is slow as if you were in 1989
[13:31] <wcchandler> got ya
[13:32] <Veryevil> if the x driver exists but innt enbale how would one go about enabling it?
[13:32] <zgreg> Veryevil: it does not exist
[13:32] <mjr> it was the alsa driver that was being talked about existing but not enabled
[13:33] <Veryevil> oh sorry
[13:33] <fALSO> because it crashes the kernel
[13:33] <shirro> Possibly X may always be slow. It might be hard to accelerate what it does effectively. The opengl accelerated toolkits will be more interesting I think.
[13:34] <shirro> Slow but not unusable
[13:34] <zgreg> why should X acceleration be hard?
[13:34] <zgreg> it's a lot of work, but it's not like opengl isn't suitable for it
[13:35] <shirro> Just judging by my A8. It is faster with EXA turned off for lots of things. Just using mmap to speed up copying blocks of memory around might not be that much of a speedup.
[13:35] <zgreg> I guess the driver is simply horrible
[13:36] * Caver (~Caver@nat1.nipltd.com) Quit (Quit: Bye)
[13:36] <shirro> Not a graphics expert but I expect a lot of tookits draw everything themselves rather than use 1990s X primitives so how do you accelerate that?
[13:37] <zgreg> typically they use xrender
[13:38] <zgreg> if they draw themselves you SOL, though :)
[13:38] <wcchandler> this channel is full of haters ha
[13:38] <zgreg> *you're
[13:38] * lars_t_h (~lars_t_h@037096130202.mbb.telenor.dk) has joined #raspberrypi
[13:39] <fALSO> not haters
[13:39] <zgreg> it should be possible to accelerate the underlying software renderer with ARMv6 SIMD, too
[13:39] <fALSO> im just asking something , that for me should work, from the first day
[13:39] <shirro> zgreg: I think that is a better option. low hanging fruit
[13:39] <zgreg> it's not nearly as nice as NEON, but can be effective
[13:39] <fALSO> because they sold it as... "to help children learn programming"
[13:39] * nrdb (~neil@ Quit (Ping timeout: 260 seconds)
[13:39] <fALSO> they are going to learn to program - kernel drivers
[13:40] <wcchandler> yes
[13:40] * nrdb (~neil@ has joined #raspberrypi
[13:40] <Drazyl> fALSO no, they sold this as a developers release for a product that will be a learning tool
[13:40] <wcchandler> why not?
[13:40] <Veryevil> I'm guessing the only way to get an accellerated web browser is to wait for the X driver?
[13:40] <shirro> zgreg: that and using the dma.
[13:40] <zgreg> yeah, I think it's fine to criticize the foundation, there's plenty of reason why
[13:40] <Drazyl> fALSO you seem to have missed all of that
[13:40] <wcchandler> Drazyl: yeah, I think I *lot* of people have :(
[13:40] <fALSO> a LOT really
[13:40] <fALSO> because of the marketing hype
[13:41] <Drazyl> fALSO and now you are complaining about a mistake you made
[13:41] <shirro> Veryevil: No. You just get QtOnPi or compile it and build a browser on QtWebkit and run it full screen on OpenGL ES
[13:41] <fALSO> nop
[13:41] <Drazyl> fALSO I saw no marketing hype
[13:41] <fALSO> about something they omited
[13:41] <fALSO> something as: "no sound"
[13:41] <Drazyl> fALSO no, it was quite clear what this rev was
[13:41] <wcchandler> i'm laughing at people who thought they could buy one and just do a NAS or something... without knowing a lick of programming or how to move around a shell. There's going to be legwork involved
[13:41] <zgreg> Drazyl: well, the problem is they said it's a developer release, but marketed it like a finished product
[13:41] <fALSO> "no 2d aceleration"
[13:41] <zleap> the hype came from the press
[13:41] <fALSO> "3d only on framebuffer"
[13:41] <Drazyl> zgreg no, they havent marketed it at all really
[13:41] <zgreg> Drazyl: no?
[13:42] <zgreg> Drazyl: of course they did!
[13:42] <Drazyl> to anyone who was paying attention it was clear this was to get it out to developers to get the software done
[13:42] <Drazyl> zgreg no
[13:42] <wcchandler> the only "marketing" I saw was at trade shows... for electronics enthusiasts
[13:42] <zgreg> what, if not marketing, were those xbmc and q3 demos?
[13:42] <wcchandler> not best buy end caps
[13:42] <Veryevil> I'm guessing the only way to get an accellerated web browser is to wait for the X driver?
[13:43] <Drazyl> zgreg that was not marketing, that was intended to demo some of the capabilities, not sell it as a games machine or media centre
[13:43] <zleap> well there are lots of tutorials out there, so iare you counting them as marketing
[13:43] <M0RBD> Drazyl: the problem is the most people use BBC et al their source... which gives a skewed perception... so zgreg has a point there.
[13:43] <phantoxe> WTF
[13:43] <Drazyl> M0RBD people who don't do any research deserve what they get
[13:43] * teso_ is now known as teso\
[13:43] * teso\ is now known as teso
[13:43] <phantoxe> today one of the "news" was that spectrum inspired the raspberry-pi
[13:43] <Drazyl> I wouldn't buy a new TV without checking out it's actual capabilities etc
[13:43] <phantoxe> wtf
[13:43] <wcchandler> @Drazyl++
[13:44] <phantoxe> everything is about r-pi
[13:44] <fALSO> how can you research on something that dont exist ?
[13:44] <zgreg> phantoxe: haha

[13:44] <Drazyl> fALSO read the forums, hang out here
[13:44] <fALSO> there wasnt said anywhere that the drivers werent done
[13:44] <zgreg> fALSO: well, there's the FAQ
[13:44] <phantoxe> maybe they should worry about the stuff that doesn't work
[13:44] <phantoxe> and talk about that
[13:44] <fALSO> here is in the FAQ stating that stuff doesnt work?
[13:44] <fALSO> where
[13:44] <phantoxe> bunch of useless crap
[13:44] <shirro> you don't really need acceleration to edit a few lines of code and draw something in a window. It is fit for its intended purpose. And it will be even better with a bit of work
[13:45] <zleap> I understand that the raspPI is aimed at teaching programming or helping people develop those skills
[13:45] <fALSO> yap
[13:45] <fALSO> use HDMI
[13:45] <fALSO> to program ont he console
[13:45] <fALSO> because if youre in X, scrolling something inside a window will take an eternity
[13:45] <phantoxe> so what?
[13:45] <phantoxe> what's the hurry??!?!?!
[13:45] <fALSO> lol
[13:46] <phantoxe> just sit back and enjoy the hype ;-)
[13:46] <shirro> fALSO: You might be interested to know that accelerating a very long wikipedia page is faster unnaccelerated on my arm board than on a 2009 Mac with nvidia graphics
[13:46] <fALSO> lol
[13:46] <shirro> scrolling not accelerating
[13:46] <wcchandler> accelerating the scroll wheel
[13:46] <fALSO> what does that matter ?

[13:47] <shirro> just pointing out that usability is about a lot more than raw speed. it depends on what you want to do. I am not going to open up 100 tabs and browse the web on a $25 machine
[13:47] <fALSO> you just need one tab
[13:47] <fALSO> it will be slow
[13:48] <fALSO> or just MOVING a window on X
[13:48] <fALSO> it will be slow
[13:48] <fALSO> slow like in 1989
[13:48] <zgreg> browsing wil be slow even with great X acceleration
[13:48] <zgreg> *will
[13:48] <M0RBD> but it does not run Windows 8!
[13:48] <zgreg> (sorry, my "l" key is a bit broken)
[13:48] <fALSO> :-
[13:48] * M0RBD runs.
[13:48] <fALSO> :-P
[13:48] <zleap> dependson the browser i guess, looking at liams debian tutorial the very simple browser he used seems fast enough
[13:49] <zleap> M0GHY, it isn't designed to run windows 8 the would does not revolve around Microsoft, thankfully
[13:49] <Cheery> shirro: I'd like to disagree
[13:49] <zleap> M0RBD, HY, it isn't designed to run windows 8 the would does not revolve around Microsoft, thankfully
[13:49] <M0RBD> zleap: I know, It was irony!
[13:49] <zleap> OK
[13:49] <zleap> sorry
[13:49] <M0RBD> :D
[13:49] <fALSO> i found a nice comment
[13:49] <fALSO> What? are there NO computers in the UK? making a small cheap computer is not automatically going to spark a fire in a child who is surrounded by more powerful machines every moment of their lives capable of doing the exact same thing
[13:49] <Cheery> I tried a fresh 2k??? computer system week ago.
[13:50] <fALSO> if it was designed for microsoft it would have drivers on the day of the launch
[13:50] <sykes> Any (uk) CRTS grads here ?! :D
[13:50] <Cheery> I noticed it was so much more responsive - even with windows 7 in it - that it'd definitely help from usability point of view.. well. if the windows 7 interfaces wouldn't be so slow to use.
[13:50] <zleap> nice thing abnout the PI will be that you can play, program, and screw it up, and fix it easily, try that with a PC re-installing an OS on a weekly basis is not fun sometimes
[13:50] <sykes> there must be one!!
[13:51] <M0RBD> fALSO: there is some truth there... Rather then programming on it they will run of and sell it on eBay.. as that's what they are learning in school today :D
[13:51] <fALSO> LOL
[13:51] <zgreg> well, you can definitely learn programming just as good on a PC
[13:51] <shirro> it is ok for people not to get the concept of the Pi. But why are they wasting time here instead of getting a life?
[13:51] <fALSO> well its nicer for eletronics than a arduino
[13:51] * wkl (~Conan@ Quit (Quit: wkl)
[13:52] <zgreg> on the forums a few people popped that want to learn programming with the pi
[13:52] <Cheery> M0RBD: I guess the kids aren't doing that sell-in-eBay thing.
[13:52] <zleap> cool
[13:52] <fALSO> yes, because its MUCH BETTER than on a normal computer
[13:52] <fALSO> LOL
[13:52] <zgreg> but they obviously have a PC at their disposal. what's stopping them?
[13:52] <fALSO> thats just dumb
[13:52] <fALSO> its too fast for them zgreg
[13:53] <fALSO> they need to see it running step by step :-P
[13:53] <zgreg> I can see that the pi has some merit for schools, though
[13:53] <fALSO> when X gets working, yes
[13:53] <fALSO> it will be really cool
[13:53] <zgreg> school PCs are often crippled pieces of shit (software-wise)
[13:53] <zleap> if we can get the PI in the hands of people who are into programming or running groups we can make a start on demos, I want to take mine to the after school club and show the kids there, when i get one,
[13:53] <zleap> zgreg, i agree
[13:53] <shirro> and you can't take them (or some of the proprietary software home)
[13:54] <Cheery> zgreg: there's one good reason for picking up rpi even if you'd have a PC around..
[13:54] <M0RBD> You need a good teacher to make the PI work as intended...
[13:54] <zgreg> and it's very attractive that you can easily attach hardware to the GPIO, and that children can take everything home
[13:54] <M0RBD> who can deliver the message to his/her pupil.
[13:54] <Cheery> say you have some tutorial or some other such... you can bundle the software required for that into an SD image.
[13:54] <fALSO> yap, i'm not seeing every teaching having the knowledge to put the rpis working
[13:54] <zleap> i am not inteding to teach programming with my group, i am intending to set up a support group so people can support each other,, if kids are doing programming they are going to be ahead of any curriculum in some cases
[13:54] <fALSO> teacher
[13:55] * jluisn (~quassel@ has joined #raspberrypi
[13:55] <Cheery> M0RBD: I looked into how rpi is organized.. it is very easy for anyone to put up and running.
[13:55] <Cheery> at least once you got the first pi
[13:55] <zleap> FALSO well i am not a teacher, i am qualified as a teaching assistant trying to get a job in a school i could be an asset on things like this
[13:55] <shirro> I want to take my Pi into wifes school. She has a big plasma screen in her room. I need to port some opengl demos
[13:55] <M0RBD> Cheery: that's not my point..
[13:56] <Cheery> M0RBD: oh you mean that the teacher itself needs to be good to make any use of tools given.. yeah you have a point
[13:56] <zleap> shirro, why not simply use geany, pythjon and pygame and demo something from that, if it is there to teach programming then show source code, and run it, change something (e.g colour) and re run
[13:56] <zleap> it shows how easy it is to modify software
[13:56] <Cheery> M0RBD: though then you essentially say that the problem isn't tools but the teachers in the first place.
[13:57] <M0RBD> Cheery: yes, partly and make his pupils intrested in developing on it.
[13:57] <zleap> teachers are going to need time to develop how they can use this fully
[13:57] <zleap> I don't think you can make kids in to programmers, they are going to need something, interest to get started
[13:57] <M0RBD> zleap: true...
[13:57] <zleap> if they are interested, self motivated you potentially have a future developer
[13:58] <Cheery> I still think raspberry pi has a chance to make it quite easy to start on.
[13:58] <shirro> zleap: I am not a teacher. My wife teaches Art. Teaching python to kids will not be happening with m Pi
[13:58] <zleap> yeah it will
[13:58] <zleap> so maybe run tuxpaint on it or something
[13:58] <Cheery> those all PC users who buy rpi even if they have very ok PC..
[13:59] <M0RBD> teenagers of today want to be on idol, etc.. and bigbrother!
[13:59] <shirro> And I don't want people handling it until I can buy a spare
[13:59] <zleap> not all of em
[13:59] <Cheery> I think the problem is their PC runs windows.
[13:59] <M0RBD> zleap: the ratio os 1:30

[14:00] <zleap> RaTTuS|BIG, and keep em in the UK
[14:00] <RaTTuS|BIG> yeah but there will be more
[14:00] <zleap> looking at Linked in there are loads of jobs in the US (programming) danger is we will lose the best unless we a ) have jobs and b) the salaries to keep em here

[14:01] <zleap> so have they started to make more PIs yet
[14:02] <shirro> People in Australia don't understand the potential for engineering to transform an economy. Easier just to dig shit up and sell it cheap. Good luck to the UK. Hope they get the engineers they deserve
[14:02] <zleap> Cheery, its a heck of a llot easier on Linux
[14:02] <zleap> i just hope the current batch goes to developers

[14:10] <shirro> was it on mainstream media? unless it made it to reddit I probably don't know
[14:10] <tntexplosivesltd> it was on the news here yeah
[14:10] <zleap> yes, there are still books out there that are not in electronic form yet,
[14:10] <shirro> anzac day always brings out a crazy element.
[14:11] <tntexplosivesltd> http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/last-post-first-light/6792303/No-apology-over-dig-at-Aussie-soldiers
[14:11] <zleap> either way these books mujst be accessible in some form to people, the invent with python books are free (pdf and html) under creative commons which is good for people on low incomes
[14:11] <Cheery> zleap: unfortunately.. I do know young ppl go to see in libraries about programming.. although I don't think they find anything from there.
[14:12] <zleap> Cheery, as i said budget cuts to libraries means there won't be any even if they want them

[14:12] <Cheery> zleap: even before budget cuts that was poorly covered.
[14:12] <tntexplosivesltd> I got my first programming book from a library
[14:12] <zleap> yeah
[14:12] <tntexplosivesltd> perl
[14:12] <Cheery> knowing what to pick.. what's good.. requires expertise.
[14:12] <zleap> at least you can look through and see if that book is for you, its free to do that
[14:12] <tntexplosivesltd> ~5-6 years ago
[14:12] <Cheery> well you get something from there. but about anything is ok if you just look for something
[14:13] <shirro> tntexplosivesltd: yeah whatever. One guy. I still like New Zealand. We have lots of dickheads as well.
[14:13] <tntexplosivesltd> shirro: yeah, I;m saying that he's a retard
[14:13] <tntexplosivesltd> everyone here hates him

[14:13] <zleap> what if you have say python or scratch, and needa book on it
[14:13] <Cheery> zleap: then you'd likely be well off with one of those reader machines and python website.
[14:14] <Cheery> python has very good documentation
[14:14] <Cheery> one of the best
[14:14] <Matt> silly weather
[14:14] <Cheery> especially if you are a kid and living in UK, and you understand english.
[14:14] <zleap> good idea, well the inventwith python site is good
[14:15] <shirro> libraries where I live have always been useless for things like programming. All I had as a kid was magazines
[14:15] <zleap> of course some books are written for children / young people
[14:15] <Matt> I had a few books
[14:16] <Cheery> I'm quite surprised I found ARRL from my local library.

[14:16] <Matt> but yeah, most of the stuff was from magazines
[14:16] <Matt> Sinclair User and Your Sinclair mainly
[14:16] <zleap> yep
[14:16] <zleap> and sinclair programs ( i think i have the last issue of that)
[14:16] <Matt> I still have one my first books on programming :)
[14:16] <tntexplosivesltd> shirro: what part of aus are you in?
[14:16] <zleap> i have loads of your sinclair mags
[14:16] <Cheery> anyway along internet the role of libraries has changed I think
[14:17] * techman2 (~Glen@ has joined #raspberrypi
[14:17] <Cheery> libraries are social gathering places and places for communicating.
[14:17] <Cheery> internet is the world library.. container of all knowledge.
[14:17] <zleap> perhaps, libraries can be meeting places for young programmers then

[14:18] <Cheery> zleap: maybe.. still the best one I have found is running the darn program.
[14:18] <Cheery> ^^
[14:18] <Cheery> of course that's not always possible
[14:18] <Matt> here we go
[14:19] <zleap> if it fails to work and despite searching through source code, and you can't find the issue, a 2nd pair of fresh eyes can sometimes spot it
[14:19] <Matt> ISBN 086020796X
[14:19] <zleap> i found an error in snake wrangling for kids (python books for kids)
[14:19] <tntexplosivesltd> shirro: nice
[14:20] <zleap> however i posted code to local lug list chat room and got help pretty quick, it was a simple error that once spotted made sense as to why that didn't work
[14:20] <Matt> "The Beginner's Programming Handbook"
[14:20] <Cheery> zleap: the title of that book sounds like suggestive.
[14:20] <Matt> "in BASIC and Machine Code"
[14:20] <tntexplosivesltd> ISBN is so powerful
[14:20] <zleap> snake = python

[14:21] <Matt> tntexplosivesltd: quite - that's why it's my usual way to reference books :)
[14:21] <zleap> its a good book, though for starting out with programming
[14:21] <zleap> its also free
[14:21] <Matt> there we go - published in 1984
[14:21] <Matt> that'd about right :)
[14:22] <shirro> Yeah, the weather is great. No volcanos or earthquakes. Boring as hell though. No work for someone with my skills. Stayed in Welly for LCA2010. Really liked it. Need an excuse to go back.
[14:22] <tntexplosivesltd> shirro: LCA?

[14:25] <zleap> if kids in the 80's could teach themselves why are people now assuming they need to be taught, my approach with my group as I said is peer support, we can help each other
[14:25] <Matt> zleap: as a child of the 80s how taught himself programming, I agree :)
[14:26] <Matt> it's all a matter of having the tools and resources
[14:26] <shirro> kids can and will teach themselves. the pi just presents an opportunity for doing it
[14:26] <Matt> and that's a hell of a lot easier now

[14:28] <zleap> a good essay
[14:28] <zleap> kids can lose interest if they are told what to write
[14:28] <Cheery> without reading the blog.. it talks about how nobody wants to learn programming.. but doing fancy things?
[14:28] <zleap> yeah
[14:29] <zleap> but you learn about loops, vairables as you go along
[14:29] * BCMM (~ben@unaffiliated/bcmm) Quit (Quit: Konversation terminated!)
[14:29] * [XeN] (~XenGi@ has joined #raspberrypi
[14:29] <zleap> rather than being taught what each of those terms mean / does, so you still learn but in a different way,
[14:30] <zleap> i guess as I also do playwork my approach ties in with that, let the kids do what the want, and provide the tools for them to do it, same as creating play spaces which is my job as a play worker (create opportunties)
[14:30] <shirro> there are different levels. you want kids to appreciate that his stuff exists at all. you want some of them to consider pursuing it further. you want some very few to get completely into it. at the moment kids are largely missing out completely
[14:30] <zleap> yeah
[14:31] <zleap> so give thetm the initial kick start is what s needed its how we do that that will make a difference
[14:31] <zleap> if they are 10/11 and want to go further, then I am sure the OSS commuity can help,

[14:32] <Cheery> having a linux system with pre-installed interpreters and gaming libraries sounds like a really good kick.

[14:32] <Purgox> oh~
[14:32] <M0RBD> zleap: good link.
[14:33] <zleap> thanks
[14:33] <shirro> those kids who really get into it will leave their teachers behind anyway. nothing you can do about that. they are natural born learners. open source projects are good but also things like a demo scene bring out lots of skills with graphics, music, algorithms etc that are good for game industry

[14:38] <shirro> Damn, that is what I need to do. Get something for serial access.
[14:38] <Cheery> while I don't have pi yet.. it's bit of waste of time now to discuss this.. but do you also know how to interface UART from raspberry pi if I replace the kernel.img with my own program?
[14:38] * techman2 (~Glen@ Quit (Quit: leaving)
[14:39] <zleap> so are young people likely to be interested in for example e-mail discussion lists which are good for swapping source code and asking for help with coding
[14:40] <ReggieUK> zleap, probably not initially but you can introduce them to the tools that the big kids (adults) use and see if they like them
[14:40] <M0RBD> Cheery: unfortunately gfx blobs is what you get from most ARM suppliers/manafacturers...
[14:40] <zleap> yeah
[14:40] <ReggieUK> if not they can complain and make their own codefacebook method of coder interaction :D
[14:40] <zleap> ReggieUK, good idea
[14:41] <Cheery> I see the BCM2835 ARM peripherals tells this stuff..
[14:41] <ReggieUK> Cheery, I don't think anyone knows much about how to interface with the pi outside of the kernel.img
[14:41] <zleap> facebook is not quite useful for swapping huge chunkjs of code in plain text i guess
[14:41] <ReggieUK> zleap, sure I was using it as a sarcastic example of some new fangled social media coding site that would pop up
[14:41] <zleap> i am sure one of the guys on my local lug as interfaced a pi with an ardino board
[14:41] <Cheery> ReggieUK: I guess someone knows. :) at least the guy who has written the linux drivers
[14:42] <ReggieUK> Cheery, maybe but he's probably under NDA and very unlikely to tell you me or anyone else how :D
[14:42] <zleap> ReggieUK, yeab but a site written for te purpose would be a good idea, ( i like the idea actually)
[14:42] <ReggieUK> we've got them
[14:42] <zleap> a cross between facebook and forums sort of thing
[14:42] <ReggieUK> sourceforge
[14:42] <ReggieUK> github etc.
[14:42] <Cheery> ReggieUK: actually.. he has told it into the source code already.. so he cannot be under NDA about UART
[14:43] <ReggieUK> but that's for a linux driver
[14:43] <zleap> hmm, ok
[14:43] <Cheery> you people want a website of some kind for coder interaction?
[14:43] <ReggieUK> not a base driver for a random binary that you want to load
[14:43] <zleap> yes
[14:43] <ReggieUK> 1. you'll probably need some assembler
[14:44] <Cheery> zleap: could you describe what you had in mind to my /msg ?
[14:44] <Cheery> zleap: I think I could see what I can do.
[14:44] <zleap> ok
[14:44] <ReggieUK> 2. you'll need to be pretty specific about how you handle and setup registers

[14:44] <ReggieUK> if you don't you'll possibly break something
[14:44] <ReggieUK> 3. you'll need a list of all teh registers that you want to access to perform board setup
[14:45] <ReggieUK> so that's all before you start to write custom drivers
[14:46] <ReggieUK> cheery, I'm not saying you can't do it
[14:46] <ReggieUK> just that at this point in time, if you're unsure about what you'd need to do then you're probably not going to have the skill/information to start
[14:47] <ReggieUK> but don't let that stop you trying
[14:47] <ReggieUK> that's how everyone starts out, not knowing stuff :D
[14:47] <Cheery> ReggieUK: I'm sort of in the middle. :)
[14:47] <Cheery> I already know a quite bit about what I should do.
[14:48] <Cheery> also there's very specific reason why I exactly want to inteface with UART in beginning

[15:27] <Matt> wcchandler: software or hardware raid?
[15:27] <lennard> yes, yes, I know thats more expensive
[15:27] <Matt> 9 disks is a bit small for 50
[15:27] <wcchandler> mm-hmm.. I'd just go for competent coworkers ;)
[15:27] <Matt> heh
[15:27] <plastikC> until i see one with my eyes
[15:27] * P4R4N01D1 (~johndoe@ Quit (Quit: Konversation terminated!)
[15:27] <lennard> well, its the classes 'pick 2' really
[15:28] <plastikC> pi is just vaporware
[15:28] <lennard> low risk, high performance, cheap: pick 2
[15:28] <Matt> also, was there a hot spare? or did the second disk fail inside your rebuild window?
[15:28] <wcchandler> we don't care about performance, just redundancy... this is used for backups
[15:28] <Matt> lennard: quite - we go through this with our customers quite frequently :)
[15:28] <Caver> they always do ... to be honest RAID 1+0 is a much better idea
[15:29] <wcchandler> Matt: had one hot spare but it wasn't in the pool, see competent coworker ;)
[15:29] <Caver> yes it's a bit more expensive, but you do tend to come out of it a lot more easily
[15:29] <Matt> wcchandler: nice :)
[15:29] <Matt> wcchandler: disks totally dead, or just dead enough to be booted out of the array?
[15:29] <traulita1a> plastikC: tupperware
[15:29] <wcchandler> dead enough, SMART failure
[15:29] <Matt> wcchandler: hardware or software raid?
[15:30] <wcchandler> magick sauce but I assume it's hardware
[15:30] <Matt> wcchandler: in which case, you may need to talk to your vendor, but normally I use dd_rescue or such to clone the disk that failed most recently
[15:30] <Matt> then assemble the array with the clone
[15:30] <wcchandler> Matt: PDF Warning! http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=2&ved=0CCwQFjAB&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.coraid.com%2Fimages%2Fuploads%2Fproducts%2FCoraid_SRX4200_Datasheet.pdf&ei=LFmVT4CDAaat6AGpwKS6BA&usg=AFQjCNHlXVZbgg8nQX6kE0evqDYLkKdxbg
[15:31] <Matt> with linux md it's pretty straightforward
[15:31] <wcchandler> Matt: well it won't let me rebuild the volume with anything...
[15:31] <Matt> with 3aare and LSI will let you force assemble, but I think you need to get support involved to do it
[15:31] <Drazyl> coraid is bsd or linux IIRC ?
[15:32] <wcchandler> I just filled out the support email asking for the best way to go about.. but yeah, I'm familiar with dd_rescue
[15:32] <wcchandler> coraid is bsd or a pretty nice bastardization of it :P

[17:41] <SpeedEvil> All PCs you can buy have some closed buts.
[17:41] <Caver> my ATI graphics card has a closed blog
[17:41] <Caver> blob
[17:42] <Caver> I just don't get why people get so worked up about the blobs on the Pi
[17:42] <Owner> yes, but it also has an accelerated x driver
[17:42] <Caver> so will the Pi
[17:42] <Drazyl> the Pi will get one
[17:43] <BenO> It's a matter of time and technique - lots of ways to accelerate 2d gui's.
[17:43] <Caver> Open GL ES is documented in full here http://www.khronos.org/registry/gles/
[17:43] <BenO> More docs on the capabilities of the video core wouldn't go amiss though
[17:43] <Drazyl> and you can boot something else by obeying the same rules it uses for Linux - in the same way that Linux on x86 obeys the same rules as are used for booting DOS

[17:47] <tpresence> thats softfp bogomips?
[17:47] <Caver> it's a very very crude estimation of speed by the linux kernel

[17:47] <IT_Sean> It's a sudo random number that nerds use to compare the "size" of their "hardware"?
[17:48] <Owner> Caver: when you plug in some usb stuff and max the cpu,. what amp draw do you get
[17:48] <BenO> IT_Sean, It's more like "How fast can I loop and do nothing?"
[17:48] <IT_Sean> Oh
[17:48] <IT_Sean> I see
[17:48] <Caver> well the very most you can draw is 1A @ 5V because that is what the main fuse on the Pi is rated for
[17:48] <SpeedEvil> Owner: It depends on what USB stuff
[17:48] <SpeedEvil> And a bit more than 1A, if you keep the board cool
[17:48] <IT_Sean> The fuse 'll pop at 1A
[17:49] <SpeedEvil> It won't.
[17:49] <Owner> one AMP is a hell of a lot
[17:49] <SpeedEvil> If it's a polyfuse, the first time it pops considerably over 1A
[17:49] <IT_Sean> Fine. It's RATED for 1a
[17:50] <Caver> Owner, well 5W
[17:50] <Owner> :)
[17:50] <tpresence> the adapters that come with the pi are 500mA
[17:50] <Owner> what would i need to run it on battery+solar only
[17:50] <tpresence> so it cant draw more than that without issues
[17:50] <Caver> the main system with out USB devices is meant to max out at 3.5W in use ... aka 0.7A @ 5V
[17:50] <SpeedEvil> Owner: Depends where you are.
[17:50] <BenO> tpresence, really?!
[17:50] <BenO> Which one is selling those?

[17:52] <tpresence> well I cant test

[17:52] <tpresence> because they sent me a euro supply
[17:52] <BenO> tpresence, is that what it says on the side?
[17:52] <tpresence> it says nothing
[17:52] <SpeedEvil> Owner: Are you actually looking for 24*7?
[17:52] <tpresence> very NOT documented on the model I have
[17:52] <tpresence> I know the B was supposed to require a 700ma supply
[17:52] <BenO> tpresence, Christ! They really are crap...
[17:53] <tpresence> I am currently using a 550mA supply from one of my mot phones
[17:53] <tpresence> runs fine
[17:53] <Owner> SpeedEvil~# compactness would be more important.... you are saying that 24/7 requires a huge panel and battery ?
[17:53] <SpeedEvil> Yes.
[17:53] <SpeedEvil> If you want 24*7
[17:53] <SpeedEvil> As the fundamental problem is coping with a week of shit weather in january
[17:53] <Owner> yea
[17:53] <Caver> well it depends ... how bad would a shut down be?
[17:54] <SpeedEvil> When the panel may peak at a tenth of its nominal output for four of hours a day

[18:08] <M0RBD> the stock did not even last a day
[18:08] <SpeedEvil> M0RBD: at teh moment, original batteries will be very aged.

[18:08] <wcchandler> i don't charge my workphone over the weekend and it usually has 50% come monday morning
[18:08] <SpeedEvil> ah - never seen that
[18:08] <Caver> if your running TOR / Freenet then the CPU will be busy most of the time

[19:52] <mkopack> Interesting, apparently there's a command line switch you can use with OpenJDK to cause it to use OPenGL to do the GUI rendering, even if X isn't accelerated...
[19:53] <cperrin88> mkopack: Amazing! Now write a video player that is accelerated!
[19:54] <mkopack> Probably not possible. Java Media Framework requires system specific libraries
[19:55] <cperrin88> Darn!
[19:57] <BenO> cperrin88, omxplayer should do the trick, if that is what you are interested in
[19:57] <cperrin88> is it in the repos?
[19:58] <BenO> part of the xbmc work - 'Gimli' has been working on this for a while and it apparently works well
[19:59] <mkopack> What I was talking about would just make it so all the Swing UI widgets and such would get painted by OpenGL vs use slow CPU rendering
[20:00] <mkopack> And as such, it might actually perform faster than "Native" apps
[20:03] <mkopack> Just because right now the native stuff isn't getting accelerated rendering.
[20:03] <mkopack> Anyhow??? BBIAB

[20:14] <Imtek> cool to see this channel exists
[20:14] <IT_Sean> Matt, I'd rather FetchTea be a recognised command
[20:14] <IT_Sean> Hello Imtek
[20:14] <Imtek> still waiting for any signs of my raspberry pi that i ordered
[20:15] <IT_Sean> When did you order?
[20:15] <Imtek> with the preorder peroid at elements
[20:15] <Imtek> btw we also run a mirror for raspberrypi ;p
[20:15] <IT_Sean> Before Release Day?
[20:15] <zgreg> interestingly, jenny from farnell/element14 contacted me
[20:15] <IT_Sean> Rather, on Release Day?
[20:16] <Imtek> ehm what was the release day (a)
[20:16] <Matt> IT_Sean: especially on a day like today
[20:16] * IT_Sean forgets
[20:16] <IT_Sean> Heh
[20:16] <Imtek> i think 2 weeks ago or so
[20:16] <Matt> it's cold, damp and generally miserable out there
[20:16] <zgreg> I'm one of the guys that ordered pretty early but didn't get a pi still :/
[20:16] <IT_Sean> Yes, it is
[20:17] <zgreg> people that ordered after me have their pi

[21:10] <Gadget-Mac> Anyone around interested in i2c ?
[21:10] <Matt> they'll change when you want them to, for the most part, if you know what causes them to change :)
[21:10] <SpeedEvil> Gadget-Mac: Sortof.

[21:53] <mjr> Well, truecrypt is... semi-open. I'm not sure it fulfills anyone's free software criterion, but at least it isn't gpl compatible, and thus can't be shipped with linux.
[21:53] <mjr> I wouldn't be surprised if it can be built for the pi, but wouldn't also be surprised if it had some x86 dependencies, being mostly used around there
[21:54] <mjr> for Linux, I'd recommend sticking to the native kernel-supported dm-crypt/luks
[21:54] <cperrin88> It builds so far
[21:55] <cperrin88> but there is a mention of assembler
[21:55] <cperrin88> and x86/64
[21:55] <sqrt[evil]> definitely for the bootloader at least

[22:38] <RITRedbeard> LVDS/parallel/serial RGB is a pain
[22:38] <RITRedbeard> unless you happen to be a decent EE

[22:39] <RITRedbeard> yeah
[22:39] <RITRedbeard> but I mean just using it for digital is a good idea, I was wishing it had LVDS instead

[22:53] <RITRedbeard> but ARM ain't RISC
[22:53] <RITRedbeard> but the power TDP makes it alright
[22:54] <SpeedEvil> RISC became largely irrelevant once RAM became slower than processors again
[22:54] * Compy (~Compy@ Quit ()
[22:54] <Matt> SpeedEvil: nothing's likely to get as CISC as VAX was tho
[22:54] <RITRedbeard> I was going to write a philosophy of science paper on RISC being paradigm shift
[22:54] <RITRedbeard> PowerPC!

[22:54] <RITRedbeard> :P
[22:55] <Matt> the damn thing had an asm instruction to calcuate a CRC
[22:55] <RITRedbeard> it had asm instruction in ISA to move three 32 bit strings
[22:55] <RITRedbeard> or something ridiculous
[22:55] * IT_Sean daily'd a PowerPC up until a month ago.
[22:55] <cperrin88> I'm to stupid to mount my USB stick on the Pi ... what options do I need?
[22:56] <RITRedbeard> mount
[22:56] <RITRedbeard> fstab
[22:56] <RITRedbeard> dmesg
[22:56] <RITRedbeard> uh
[22:56] <SpeedEvil> Matt: True.
[22:56] <RITRedbeard> pipe and grub?
[22:56] <cperrin88> I can mount it but I can't write
[22:56] <RITRedbeard> grep
[22:56] <RITRedbeard> does it have write lock on it physicaly?
[22:57] <IT_Sean> The raspi does not check for the write protect tab
[22:57] <RITRedbeard> I thought it was a function of the USB drive's circuitry
[22:57] <RITRedbeard> not the OS?

[22:59] <IT_Sean> It is not
[22:59] * Behold (~behold@unaffiliated/beholdmyglory) has joined #raspberrypi
[22:59] <IT_Sean> The slot looks for the tab. Like the tab on floppies. The slot on the pi does not have the tab sensor
[22:59] <IT_Sean> And on that, I am off
[22:59] <Matt> have fun :)
[23:00] <RITRedbeard> linux/posix operating system have steep learning curve; rewarded with intense curiosity and tolerance/patience to not go medievil on its ass.

[23:00] <RITRedbeard> the fancy linux modern distro has some sort of daemon that handles PnP hardware in dmesg and mounts for you
[23:00] <RITRedbeard> try just doing 'mount'
[23:00] <RITRedbeard> as sanity check
[23:00] <cperrin88> I did
[23:01] <cperrin88> I mounted it
[23:01] <cperrin88> it's there
[23:01] <RITRedbeard> then dmesg | grep "storage"
[23:01] <RITRedbeard> cd /place/where/its/mounted?

[23:01] <RITRedbeard> ls -l /rootmountpoint
[23:01] <RITRedbeard> chmod flags? :)
[23:02] <RITRedbeard> your default profile might do 0600
[23:02] <RITRedbeard> Was I right?
[23:02] <BenO> cperrin88, did you do something like: "mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/foo"?
[23:02] <cperrin88> yeah
[23:03] * nils_2 (~nils_2@unaffiliated/nils-2/x-2480262) Quit (Quit: WeeChat 0.3.8-dev)
[23:03] <BenO> what's the filesystem on the usb stick?
[23:03] <RITRedbeard> I thought mount and touch were affected by line in your .profile or .shell_profile/.shellrc ?
[23:03] <BenO> Just a vanilla one?
[23:03] <cperrin88> I think I found the error
[23:03] <cperrin88> writing works
[23:03] <RITRedbeard> did you chmod that?
[23:04] <cperrin88> I tried to untar
[23:04] <RITRedbeard> oh?
[23:04] <cperrin88> but tar tried to set the owner and that wasn't permitted
[23:04] <cperrin88> that was the problem
[23:04] <RITRedbeard> that would do it
[23:04] <BenO> cperrin88, ah so normal fat32 stick
[23:04] <RITRedbeard> did you just sudo chown?
[23:04] <cperrin88> beno: yep
[23:05] * Behold (~behold@unaffiliated/beholdmyglory) Quit (Read error: Operation timed out)
[23:05] <RITRedbeard> SUDO CHOWN?
[23:06] <cperrin88> RITRedbeard: nope
[23:06] <RITRedbeard> WHAT DID YOU DO
[23:06] <cperrin88> I used the option --no-same-owner
[23:06] <RITRedbeard> tar zvf foo.tar.gz --no-same-owner?!?!?!
[23:06] <RITRedbeard> !?@?!@!?@
[23:06] <cperrin88> yep
[23:06] <RITRedbeard> Good.
[23:07] <RITRedbeard> >:|
[23:07] <BenO> You can't chown/chmod a fat32 partition
[23:07] <RITRedbeard> then we shall not use fat32 partitions.
[23:07] <RITRedbeard> They're a sleight against FHS and God.
[23:08] <RITRedbeard> Also, that is a useful tip, thanks cperrin88.
[23:08] <RITRedbeard> No doubt in the future I will be trying to do the same exact operation.
