[0:00] <Matt> Cheery: you can append stuff to the end of an image, then you have to update the partition table at the beginning of the image
[0:00] * jthunder (~jthunder@ has joined #raspberrypi
[0:00] <mkopack> Yeahk I like their lemon pepper and the Parm Garlic
[0:00] <mkopack> ugh, I REALLY don't want to sit through lecture tonight??? UGH
[0:00] <mkopack> Hope it goes fast
[0:01] <hotwings> my night wont be much better.. going to primer one of my bathrooms tonight.. good news is that the remodel is almost done with it
[0:02] <mkopack> Oh yeah, I think I'd rather sit through lecture
[0:02] <Cheery> Matt: so I can do: a = 0x00 * 5MB, b = 1 MBR, mkfs.msdos a, b += a, update b MBR
[0:02] <Cheery> ?
[0:02] <mkopack> I *HATE* painting
[0:02] <hotwings> tell me about it :\
[0:02] <mkopack> I'd rather do construction, drywall, electrical, plumbing, roofing, whatever??? but I DETEST painting
[0:02] <hotwings> i hate painting the most of all of it
[0:03] <mkopack> Tile is a bit of a PITA as well
[0:03] <Hattara-pilvi> IT_Sean: Cheery wantso to do partitioning the hard way, instyead of using existing utilitys, he is goin to write one him/her self in python.
[0:04] <mkopack> Good lord WHY?
[0:04] <IT_Sean> that sounds like an incredible waste of time
[0:04] <hotwings> i just finished up a remodel of my master bathroom where i did a tiled in shower & jacuzzi bath. it actually wasnt that bad but im not anxious to do it again.
[0:04] * Guest55991 (~Matthew@cpc3-farn4-0-0-cust594.6-2.cable.virginmedia.com) Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[0:05] <mkopack> yeah, I keep toying with putting tile in my master bath and kitchen, but UGH
[0:05] <hotwings> he _wants_ to write a partitioner in python? did this idea come about while drunk or something?
[0:05] * Matthew (~Matthew@cpc3-farn4-0-0-cust594.6-2.cable.virginmedia.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:06] <Cheery> hotwings: it just looks simpler than trying to use these fdisk etc. things.
[0:06] * Matthew is now known as Guest96021
[0:06] <mchou> lol
[0:06] <Cheery> I wouldn't exactly say they are pretty
[0:06] <mchou> fdisk has gotten way better
[0:06] <Cheery> or easy to use
[0:06] <Matt> Cheery: so use gparted
[0:07] <Matt> although I dunno if that'll work on a loopback device
[0:07] <hotwings> one of my contractor friends just hipped me to this new kind of tile tape. apparently is bonds supposedly better than mortar but you get ONE chance to get it right. if you screw up you either live with it or are going to go through hell to get the tile off and try again...if you dont break/ruin it in the process
[0:07] <mkopack> Ugh, no thanks
[0:08] <_av500_> writing a partitioner is pretty simple
[0:08] <hotwings> i dont have the stones to try that stuff on a any kind of large scale
[0:08] <_av500_> after all you need only to write 4x16 bytes in the mbr
[0:08] <Matt> that's the nice thing about tile adhesive/thinset - you can move your tiles around
[0:08] * iMatttt (~imatttt@cpc3-farn4-0-0-cust594.6-2.cable.virginmedia.com) Quit (Quit: TLS packet ect messages)
[0:09] <hotwings> maybe ill see how it works on the back & side splash
[0:09] * warddr (~warddr@Wikipedia/Warddr) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:09] <Matt> by a few fractions of an inch at least
[0:09] <Cheery> _av500_: yeah. that's what I thought. the meat is in the mkfs.
[0:09] <_av500_> you want to write that too?
[0:09] <_av500_> again, vfat i moderately simple
[0:09] <_av500_> is*
[0:09] <Cheery> _av500_: probably not
[0:10] <Cheery> _av500_: I'm not that mad. :)
[0:10] * _av500_ wrote a vfat formatter once
[0:10] * dwild (6017baaa@gateway/web/freenode/ip. has joined #raspberrypi
[0:10] <_av500_> well, also a vfat read/write lib
[0:10] * s[x] (~sx]@eth589.qld.adsl.internode.on.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:10] <hotwings> matt - yeah and you can get tile off that was mortared without too much hassle too in case you need to do a repair or something
[0:10] * phoque (~nils@nrbg-4dbfa109.pool.mediaWays.net) Quit (Quit: Verlassend)
[0:11] <Matt> aye
[0:11] <Cheery> _av500_: of course I'd love if it'd be just like compress/extract.
[0:11] <_av500_> ?
[0:11] * UKB|Away is now known as unknownbliss
[0:11] <mkopack> Ugh, the only thing worse than reading a technical paper is having to watch a presentation by a grad student who doesn't speak english natively on a technical paper??? Slide #2 and the english is already so horribly broken I can't follow WTF he's talking about
[0:11] <Cheery> that might make it worthwhile to make a toy, which writes an msdos filesystem into the image straight out, and inserts the files. :)
[0:11] * prebz_ (~prebz@c83-248-137-170.bredband.comhem.se) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:12] <Cheery> as well as extracts them
[0:12] <_av500_> use |
[0:12] <_av500_> the tile glue of unix
[0:12] <NucWin> nice openttd is sweet
[0:12] <Cheery> _av500_: for what?

[0:12] * stephenl (~stephenl@c-67-166-113-196.hsd1.ut.comcast.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:13] <Hattara-pilvi> Cheery: to pipe stuff from app to app
[0:13] <_av500_> for adding simple tools to make a complex one
[0:13] <a_c_r_> http://www.raspberrypiforums.com/forum/showthread.php?660-Dos-6-22&s=057eb581e18773500d58285c0dc866eb
[0:13] * felgru (~felgru@xdsl-87-78-75-152.netcologne.de) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:13] <Cheery> _av500_: oh yeah.
[0:13] <_av500_> "the unix way(tm)"
[0:14] * warddr (~warddr@Wikipedia/Warddr) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[0:14] <Cheery> _av500_: you mean that because it's simple if I 'compress' things into filesystem images and then splatter them together with a partition table?
[0:14] <a_c_r_> :'(
[0:14] <Hydrazine> a_c_r_: lolwut
[0:15] <_av500_> Cheery: I dont get what you are trying to do

[0:15] <_av500_> a file system image is a file system
[0:15] * neciO (~juan@d51A445FA.access.telenet.be) Quit (Quit: leaving)
[0:15] <_av500_> you just copy it with dd
[0:15] * prebz (~prebz@c83-248-137-170.bredband.comhem.se) Quit (Ping timeout: 276 seconds)
[0:15] * DDave (~DDave@unaffiliated/ddave) Quit (Ping timeout: 276 seconds)
[0:15] <_av500_> if you have a .tgz or so, then yes you need to write it to a file system
[0:15] <_av500_> mount the fs and extract it there
[0:16] <_av500_> that all using std tools
[0:16] <Cheery> hmm. yeah
[0:16] <Cheery> maybe I have better things to do anyway.
[0:16] <_av500_> yep
[0:17] * Hattara-pilvi wonders if Cheery is a relative of one guy in RPi forums who claimed it would be so easy to make RPi run x86 .exe files (not .net executables, pure windows ones)..... no matter how many facts on its impossibility you gave, he didn't want to belive
[0:17] <_av500_> use qemu
[0:17] <_av500_> dead simple
[0:17] <mkopack> Sure, you COULD run qemu
[0:17] <mkopack> but it'll be ungodly slow
[0:17] <mrdragons> But it would run. :P
[0:17] <mkopack> like IBM XT days slow
[0:17] <NucWin> pi
[0:17] <_av500_> well, 8mhz was fast back then
[0:17] <Cheery> Hattara-pilvi: are you certain he's wrong?
[0:17] <mkopack> yeah ,considering I was on a 1Mhz C64 :)
[0:17] <NucWin> new post on home page
[0:18] <Cheery> Hattara-pilvi: no. I don't think we are relatives.. as I hate x86 and windows.. and consider them tricky no matter which direction you approach them from.
[0:19] <NucWin> grrrr at adsl i just got about 50lines at once from my bouncer
[0:20] * Behold (~behold@d83-183-177-229.cust.tele2.se) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:20] <Cheery> Hattara-pilvi: I'd describe myself as more like.. NIH & DIY guy.
[0:20] <Cheery> + sort of perfectionist
[0:21] <Hattara-pilvi> Cheery: Are you a negative or positive type of a perfectionist?
[0:21] <Cheery> that I don't know.
[0:22] <Cheery> I see something's wrong.. I get to fix it if I can.
[0:22] <Hattara-pilvi> Cheery: Negative = "No use its not gonna be perfect, I'l be better off witout it at all" positive = "Its not perfect, I MUST get it to be perfect, I shall not give up untill it is."
[0:22] <Cheery> and it's very hard to stop such battles I've already started.
[0:23] <mrdragons> Is that first one actually considered perfectionist?
[0:23] <Cheery> I like the sfdisk.. but I'm unconformtable with loopback devices.
[0:23] <Cheery> but..
[0:23] * fabrice1 (~fabrice@c-67-180-20-19.hsd1.ca.comcast.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:23] <Cheery> if someone runs it with raspberry pi.. the image must be built straight into the SD card.
[0:23] * BeholdMyGlory (~behold@d83-183-177-229.cust.tele2.se) Quit (Ping timeout: 260 seconds)
[0:24] <Cheery> well. probably for best results that must be done anyway
[0:24] * jprvita is now known as jprvita|afk
[0:25] <Cheery> so it might be best for me to just make the simplest thing. create MBR and add small routine to inserting a partition to loopback device.
[0:25] <Cheery> for a while I were wondering whether I could somehow get a partition out of the file *inside* the loopback device.. but nobody seems to do that.
[0:26] <Cheery> everybody just peeks inside with fdisk -lu and types in the correct offset.
[0:26] <Hattara-pilvi> Cheery: mount image to loop back dd if=/dev/loopXpY of=/file
[0:28] <Cheery> Hattara-pilvi: there doesn't see to be such things as /dev/loopXpY once I've done the losetup
[0:28] * BeholdMyGlory (~behold@d83-183-177-229.cust.tele2.se) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:28] * Behold (~behold@d83-183-177-229.cust.tele2.se) Quit (Ping timeout: 240 seconds)
[0:28] <Hattara-pilvi> Cheery: Did you forget -P from losetup command?
[0:29] <Hattara-pilvi> Cheery: -P == skan for parittions and crearte a /dev/loop0pY for each partition
[0:29] <Cheery> my losetup doesn't list that option
[0:30] <Cheery> invalid option -P
[0:31] <Hattara-pilvi> Cheery: What version id your util-linux package?
[0:31] <Cheery> how do I find that out from apt-get?
[0:32] * [TNM]Roban (~Roban_A@90-227-25-142-no68.tbcn.telia.com) Quit (Ping timeout: 265 seconds)
[0:32] <Hattara-pilvi> Cheery: You say you hate x86 and windows.... that higly indicates you use Linux on some more exotic hardware, yet you don't knoe hoe to use apt-get. And are even palling on writin a MBR generator O_O...I see something strange in there... not by any bad
[0:33] <Cheery> Hattara-pilvi: it's not like I use apt-get every day.
[0:33] * SpeedEvil wonders again about the recent x86 phones, and locking.
[0:33] <Cheery> and I hate x86 yet I use it. :)
[0:34] <Hattara-pilvi> Cheery: dpkg-query -p util-linux
[0:34] <SpeedEvil> The medfield ones. They're comparable with CPU power with ARM - but I'm wondering about 'proper' linux on them
[0:34] <Cheery> Version: 2.19.1-2ubuntu3
[0:34] <Cheery> Hattara-pilvi: this is what you asked for?
[0:34] * Guest96021 (~Matthew@cpc3-farn4-0-0-cust594.6-2.cable.virginmedia.com) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)

[0:35] * sioux_ (c95c80c2@gateway/web/freenode/ip. has joined #raspberrypi
[0:36] <Hattara-pilvi> Cheery: Theres the reason, You use Ubunut (gets creeps from even writing that name) your version of util-linu is OOOOOLLLLLLDDDDDD. The -P option was added to version 2.21
[0:36] <sioux_> hi i from brazil and i want buy raspberry pi. somebody knows where i can?
[0:37] <Cheery> Hattara-pilvi: oh.
[0:37] <Hattara-pilvi> sioux_: Front page http://www.raspberrypi.org/ Element14 logo and RS logo click eather of them
[0:37] <mkopack> sioux_: Look up your local RS or Farnell Element 14 affiliate / branch
[0:37] <Cheery> Hattara-pilvi: so ubuntu fs me on face literally there..
[0:37] <plugwash> Hattara-pilvi, debian sid doesn't have 2.21 either
[0:37] <sioux_> thas ok
[0:37] <plugwash> so it sounds like this is a VERY new feature
[0:38] <Hattara-pilvi> Debian sid is OOOOLLLLDDDD too. Use ArchLinux BE happy!
[0:38] * anon9002 (~anon@KYM5298.rh.psu.edu) Quit (Ping timeout: 240 seconds)
[0:38] <Cheery> Hattara-pilvi: so next thing is to compile my own util-linux then.
[0:38] <Cheery> or does it go this way?
[0:39] <Hattara-pilvi> Cheery: Dunno how you Ubuntu guys doo it. It can't be ./configure && make it is Ubuntu after all, you like do everything differendly

[0:41] * nordstingy (~unsignedb@f050064038.adsl.alicedsl.de) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:42] <Cheery> oh. it's been done
[0:42] <Hattara-pilvi> Cheery: Downlod the 2.21.1 tarball, extrack, cd, ./configure, make -jammount_of_yout_cpu_cores, and run it from that dir after make finnishes
[0:42] * unsignedbool (~unsignedb@f050065014.adsl.alicedsl.de) Quit (Ping timeout: 252 seconds)
[0:42] <Cheery> Hattara-pilvi: there's also a workaround.
[0:42] <Cheery> I don't know which one is better.. :/
[0:43] <Cheery> first of the things aside desktop env that seems to be c in ubuntu.
[0:43] <Hattara-pilvi> plugwash: No cookies for you :P
[0:46] * mpthompson (~IceChat77@c-50-131-39-81.hsd1.ca.comcast.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:46] <Hattara-pilvi> plugwash: Instead you'l get trout soup ^_^
[0:47] <Cheery> kpartx works for now
[0:48] <Cheery> I can use that for what I wanted to do.
[0:48] <Cheery> :)
[0:48] <Cheery> now I get some sleep
[0:49] <Cheery> Hattara-pilvi: why is it so hard to make a well-working distro that doesn't have something terribly outdated?
[0:50] <plugwash> Cheery, he just has an unreasonable definition of "terriblly outdated"
[0:50] <Hattara-pilvi> Cheery: It not.... Arch Linux does exist. Everything shining new, always the latest version, with delay of few days-weeks, depending bit on the application
[0:50] <Hattara-pilvi> plugwash: 4 months is more than terribly out dated
[0:50] <Cheery> unfortunately I don't believe you.. there must be something bad in it if it's not used by everyone.
[0:51] <Cheery> or then there must be something bad in people.. :/ who don't use arch linux
[0:51] <Cheery> bah
[0:51] <Cheery> getting sleep. :)
[0:51] <Cheery> I know that kpartx is bit of an idiocy. but can't help it
[0:52] <Cheery> odd thing nobody bothered about partitions until now.

[1:00] <tzarc> uh-huh :)
[1:01] <tzarc> was mucking around with debootstrap last night
[1:01] <tzarc> had to manually dpkg --configure libstdc++6-dev tho

[1:05] <tzarc> this was on an x86_64, so perhaps whenever it's off-arch it does it
[1:06] * Meatballs is now known as Meatballs|Away
[1:06] <tzarc> armel has no probs though, if I get home early enough might look into it tonight so the masses don't strike the same problem
[1:06] <mpthompson> Hopefully the days of doing debootstrap are numbered in the low double digits with Raspbian.
[1:06] <tzarc> :)
[1:07] <tzarc> still handy having a chroot sitting on my main machine tho

[1:09] * n1x0n (nixon@n1x0n-1-pt.tunnel.tserv5.lon1.ipv6.he.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:09] <tzarc> yep, running on an rpi
[1:09] <mpthompson> Cool. I'm glad some people have hardware.
[1:09] <tzarc> :)
[1:09] <tzarc> and hey, it works!
[1:09] <tzarc> raspbian lives!
[1:10] <mpthompson> Long live raspbian!
[1:11] <mpthompson> More stuff coming down the pipeline. Maybe in two more weeks we'll have 95% or better of the packages compiled. We'll see.
[1:11] <tzarc> I'm gonna see whether I can muck about getting a bootable USB instead of SD partition
[1:11] <tzarc> so many USB sticks floating around, but only two SD cards
[1:11] <tzarc> leave the kernel etc. on the fat32
[1:11] <tzarc> change root
[1:11] <tzarc> etc. etc.
[1:12] <mpthompson> Yep. Shouldn't be too hard. Just need to twiddle the kernel arguments.
[1:12] <mpthompson> I heard rumors that USB disk images are much faster on the RPi than the SD card. Something to do with clocks and such. Have you experienced that?
[1:13] <tzarc> dunno yet, haven't gotten that far :)
[1:13] <tzarc> just making sure the kernel has workable USB drivers built in
[1:13] <dmsuse> mpthompson: sd cards are stupidly slow.. the pi supports usb 2.. so it makes perfect sense that the usb will be faster :P
[1:13] <tzarc> and now I'm sooo late for work so I should really run off
[1:14] <tzarc> catch ya later folks
[1:14] <zgreg> the SD interface is very slow for some reason
[1:14] <mpthompson> Well, I believe the comparison I saw was the native SD port and a USB SD port dongle.
[1:14] <zgreg> it should be able to do ~20 MB/s, but it's getting nowhere near that
[1:14] <shirro> how stable are people finding raspbian on real hardware? Any show stoppers?
[1:14] <dmsuse> 20mb/s from an sd card?? i very much doubt that
[1:15] <zgreg> dmsuse: sequential reading that is not unusual, IIRC
[1:15] <mpthompson> Someone said the clock on the native SD port was at 12MHz and the USB SD port was driving the same clock signal at 50MHz or something.
[1:15] <dmsuse> zgreg: what file system are you using?
[1:15] <mpthompson> I believe I saw that in the forums.
[1:15] <zgreg> dmsuse: none, on the block level
[1:15] <shirro> mpthompson: yeah, I saw the same. someone measured the clock and it was slower than expected
[1:16] <mpthompson> Hopefully something easily addressed with a driver tweak.
[1:16] <dmsuse> i can't remember where i saw it but ext4 is considerably faster than ext3
[1:16] <zgreg> dmsuse: the raw speed is 25 MB/s, so 20 MB/s is definitely possible
[1:17] <mpthompson> However, I'm certain that the RPi users will be using the Broadcom SOC chip in ways the designers never thought it would be used. Bumps in the road are expected.

[1:18] <shirro> I am very interested to find out the limits of this videocore iv. The hand wavy faster than an iphone 4 stuff isn't enough
[1:18] <hackery21> So who here has a RasPi
[1:18] <hackery21> So who here has a RasPi?
[1:19] * hackery21 does not
[1:19] <shirro> hackery21: everyone but mpthompson though he has more arm cpu power than the government
[1:19] <Da|Mummy> who is crashing newark.com ?
[1:19] <dmsuse> not me :P
[1:19] <hackery21> lol
[1:19] <zgreg> yeah and the "it has 24 GFLOPS of computing power!" number that is often quoted by dom/jamesh/etc is quite misleading
[1:20] <hackery21> So is the speed better than 4S
[1:20] <shirro> raymarching full hd fragment shaders aren't happening
[1:20] <zgreg> first, 24 GFLOPS isn't exactly impressive for a GPU
[1:20] <dmsuse> jamesh is paid to talk lies and hype it up
[1:20] <zgreg> second, opengl es is VERY restricted in what it can do
[1:20] <mpthompson> Shirro, I wish. I can't find any more build machines... I'm glad I ordered my five iMX53 QSB's when I did otherwise this project would have never got off the ground.

[1:28] <shirro> Despite all the Liz bashing I think she does a good job. Not perfect, but you get that with a volunteer amateur thing. She knows a little about games and demoscene and things that gives her a bit more cred than people allow her.
[1:28] <dmsuse> a super powerful gpu that doesn't even have a 3d driver :P
[1:28] <flaushy> is she getting paid for her job?
[1:28] <zgreg> dmsuse: it does, I think you misunderstood something
[1:28] <shirro> dmsuse: that is complete crap. the 3d driver is opengl and it works
[1:28] <dmsuse> since when?
[1:28] <shirro> it is kind of slow, but it works
[1:28] <dmsuse> the last i heard there was no 3d and no sound
[1:28] <zgreg> opengl es works fine
[1:28] <tntexplosivesltd> everyone's been playing quake on it
[1:28] <zgreg> not sure what you guys have been smoking
[1:28] <tntexplosivesltd> have you not been keeping up?
[1:28] <shirro> dmsuse: since day one. qt has been demoing it . quake has been demoing it.
[1:29] <tntexplosivesltd> how dmsusing
[1:29] <tntexplosivesltd> =P
[1:29] <dmsuse> lol cool
[1:29] <zgreg> opengl (especially the ES variant) is not necessarily related to X
[1:29] <shirro> A lot of the stuff that "doesn't work" is legacy shite like X acceleration which isn't really the ideal way to go on a limited machine anyway.
[1:30] <zgreg> shirro: I think that goes too far, X is not legacy crap
[1:30] <shirro> In a couple of years I will have a working Wayland. I will damn it!
[1:30] <zgreg> and won't be for quite a while, despite all the bitching it has endure due to wayland, etc
[1:30] <zgreg> yes, in a couple of years. maybe.
[1:31] <zgreg> we don't know yet
[1:31] <zgreg> wayland might solve some of the problems X poses, but it's also creating many, many new problems
[1:31] <ReggieUK> Anyone listening to bbc 1Extra on the radio?
[1:31] <zgreg> wayland in its current state is too simple
[1:32] <shirro> there isn't a lot to Wayland. It is just a protocol. It might move a bit faster if they weren't all developing on machines with drm, kms, mesa and X. Like the Pi for instance
[1:32] <zgreg> yeah, but the protocol is pretty unfinished and barebones
[1:33] <zgreg> and the implementation(s) (I think there's only weston, isn't it) are even worse
[1:34] <shirro> I think there is work on compositors from all the usuals - qt, kde, gnome etc. The compositor does all the work (that the client doesn't do)

[1:37] <zgreg> by proprietary I mean that only mesa implements those, and they're hardly documented at all
[1:38] <shirro> I think a lot of egl implementations probably do have something similar. If you want to composite output from various processes it makes sense to provide this.
[1:42] <zgreg> yes, that's probably right
[1:42] <zgreg> android's SurfaceFlinger is actually really similar to wayland/weston :)

[1:53] <dmsuse> pwnt
[1:53] <ReggieUK> well, not so much screwed up the soldering directly to the board
[1:53] <shirro> but threw it in a bin instead of taking a photo
[1:53] <ReggieUK> more screwed up holding the iron
[1:54] <IT_Sean> Yeah, he dropped the hot iron ONTO the board.
[1:54] <ReggieUK> so soldering it would seem he is mostly fine with

[2:18] <hackery21> Well It would look akward
[2:19] <ReggieUK> SpeedEvil, those prices look like it might be the whole dock
[2:19] <ReggieUK> why would it look awkward?
[2:19] <ReggieUK> no more awkward than an atrix :D
[2:19] <Ben64> would have to change mini hdmi to normal size, and micro usb to usb
[2:19] <hackery21> because you have pcb sticking out of the top of a laptop
[2:19] <ReggieUK> eh?
[2:20] <ReggieUK> it'd stick out of the back of the dock just like an atrix would
[2:20] <hackery21> yes
[2:20] <ReggieUK> tbh I'd prefer that
[2:20] <Ben64> not the same ports or spacing
[2:20] <hackery21> but that would look akward also
[2:20] <ReggieUK> because then my development board is right where I can get at it
[2:20] <Ben64> so you'd need to get extension cables too
[2:20] <Ben64> so the pi would likely sit somewhere behind it
[2:20] <hackery21> thats why many people do not but lapdocks
[2:20] <hackery21> buy
[2:20] <ReggieUK> like I said, sounds like it needs a little breakout
[2:21] <Ben64> if i had my pi in hand, i'd probably buy that lapdock
[2:21] <Ben64> but it'll be about 2 months till i get mine
[2:21] <ReggieUK> but you're building a laptop for a development board
[2:21] <hackery21> Yup
[2:21] <hackery21> A prototype
[2:21] <Ben64> i like how the lapdock comes with its own battery system too
[2:22] <ReggieUK> yeah, about that, generally development people like to get their hands on the innards, quickly
[2:22] <hackery21> i am thinking intel atom for a later prototype
[2:22] <ReggieUK> Ben64, I was thinking that too
[2:22] <ReggieUK> with the added bonus that you can plug a ps3 or an xbox360 or any other random hdmi device into it too
[2:22] <Ben64> you could use it to power the pi too
[2:22] <Ben64> but would have to do a bit of trickery
[2:23] <hackery21> thats why its a clear laptop and the plastic clicks on together
[2:23] <Ben64> pics?
[2:23] <hackery21> not yet

[2:28] <hackery21> seems useful
[2:29] <shirro> hackery21: that is a really good idea. the socket (does it even deserve the name) on the Pi is a bit ordinary looking
[2:29] <ReggieUK> for what?
[2:29] <Ben64> pi laptop i'd guess
[2:29] <hackery21> For extending the sd card slot in the laptop so it can be interchaanged without having to open the laptop
[2:29] <Ben64> have to extend some or all of the ports in order for it to not suck
[2:29] <shirro> and it can be in an awkward position. and the card sticks out.
[2:30] <ReggieUK> pffft
[2:30] <Ben64> you could have the pi at a corner of the laptop, and just extend the 2 other sides

[3:33] <shirro> All we need to do is bury Murdoch and his press and a few fat mining magnates and I could still have 100M fibre in 3 years time when the rest of the world is going to 1G. Instead the copper will degrade more and I will end up on congested 3G.
[3:33] <Guest58254> Besides it's not virginmedia actively banning it, they have been forced to by the court.. so it's not like they are going to go out of their way to ban every possible way to get on their.. they will just do what the court says, ban the IP / dns block
[3:34] <Guest58254> NucWin: Does it still block if you change your dns to
[3:35] <NucWin> i have my own dns server and manually added an A entry to test
[3:35] <Guest58254> Why would you use your own dns server?
[3:35] <NucWin> set my own tpb.blah up
[3:35] <NucWin> with ip pointing no proxying
[3:36] <NucWin> for full control of my freedns account
[3:36] <Guest58254> Wait, you set up a dns specifically for this?
[3:36] <Guest58254> Why not just change your host file?
[3:36] <Guest58254> Oh, so you're using freedns's servers and not your "own dns server"?
[3:36] <NucWin> though of that but if it worked i would have shared the dns entry with my friends
[3:37] <Dagger2> Virgin Media's blocking is on the IP ( and, possibly others), so any amount of using another domain name to resolve to those IPs isn't going to help
[3:37] <NucWin> thought*
[3:37] <hackery21> back
[3:37] <Guest58254> Dagger2: I believe the foundation behind the tpb has already set up a proxy server specifically for tpb
[3:38] <Dagger2> they also block any other sites hosted on those servers, and https:// connects but then hangs
[3:38] <Crenn-NAS> shirro: Only something major would make the australian people not vote the noalition
[3:38] <Guest58254> Years ago at school the blocking systems were so lazy, they would block the http but not the https
[3:39] <Dagger2> I can also confirm that they're using their child porn blocking system to block it, in case anybody was under the delusion that "thin end of the wedge" doesn't apply to internet censorship

[3:40] <shirro> Dagger2: yeah, we all knew the filters were not really for kiddie porn. you close that stuff down at the source with police raids. you don't leave the sites up. it was always about hollywood enforcement and political speech
[3:40] <Guest58254> That used to be super useful for downloading tv shows as soon as they came out

[11:15] <Davespice> guys, can anyone explain to me in a nice way (meaning not patronising) why a hard-float variant of Debian is desirable? as opposed to not? I am guessing its something to do with how arithmetic calculations are done in binary
[11:15] <gordon_drogon> it's faster.
[11:15] <gordon_drogon> or should be.
[11:15] <zgreg_> Davespice: some possible speedup
[11:15] <Davespice> ahh I see, okay
[11:15] <zgreg_> but it's hyped a bit too much
[11:16] <zgreg_> hardfp is NOT a magic bullet
[11:16] * MystX (~MystX@49-50-247-177.a.hd.net.nz) has joined #raspberrypi
[11:16] <Davespice> and what actually is it... am I thinking olong the right lines with binary arithmetic?
[11:16] <gordon_drogon> there is no gcc-anything. I did a find / -name gcc\* and it found a set of directories under /usr/lib but they were empty.
[11:16] <zgreg_> Davespice: it's about the calling convention, i.e. how C functions pass parameters
[11:16] <xranby> gordon_drogon: i will setup a system here using and test for myself http://distribution.hexxeh.net/raspbian/raspbian-r2.zip
[11:16] <zgreg_> Davespice: specifically, floating-point parameters
[11:16] <gordon_drogon> that's what I downloaded.
[11:17] <Davespice> zgreg_: so does source code need to be modified to work on it?
[11:17] <gordon_drogon> it shouldn't need to.
[11:17] <zgreg_> Davespice: "softfp" is the standard ABI and that is compatible to CPUs without an FPU. it passes floating-point parameters in integer registers, which can be slow
[11:17] <xranby> Davespice: most sourcecode only require a recompile
[11:17] <zgreg_> Davespice: "hardfp" actually uses the FPU registers, and therefore can be faster
[11:17] * Byan (byan@gateway/shell/mtu-lug/x-nlebnvuhntnxegkt) Quit (Read error: Operation timed out)
[11:17] <Davespice> oh I see... so hard float means hardware floating point... got it
[11:18] <xranby> Davespice: a lot of the hard work to fix the code have alredy been done during last years armhf bringup
[11:18] <zgreg_> Davespice: no
[11:18] <Davespice> like the old 486 DX and SX models?
[11:18] <zgreg_> Davespice: it's only about how to pass floating-point numbers to functions

[11:18] <Davespice> okay right
[11:18] <zgreg_> you can still have hardware-accelerated FP calculations with softfp
[11:19] <Davespice> right...
[11:19] <Davespice> okay thank you for explaining
[11:19] <zgreg_> it's not that hard to work around the softfp restrictions
[11:19] <gordon_drogon> Hm. Can you? I was under the impression it was both...
[11:20] <zgreg_> a) inline a lot b) pass pointers instead of values
[11:20] <gordon_drogon> So do I need some extra flags in the current release to use hardware FP, or is it used by default?
[11:20] <zgreg_> gordon_drogon: yes
[11:20] <Davespice> I've been facing a wierd miss-compilation issue with the OpenTTD source code on the Pi
[11:20] <zgreg_> gordon_drogon: you need to pass the right flag to gcc to make it use the FPU
[11:21] <gordon_drogon> ok. intersting. let me give that a go then...
[11:21] <gordon_drogon> (rebooting my pi - wish I could sleect 2 SD cards!)
[11:21] * Gwayne (~Gwayne@opensuse/member/gwayne) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[11:23] <zgreg_> but, really, for most applications FP performance doesn't matter that much
[11:24] <gordon_drogon> unless you use floating point all the time :)
[11:25] <zgreg_> yeah, but apart from number-crunching that doesn't really happen often
[11:25] <xranby> please run some benchmarks and report the results
[11:25] <gordon_drogon> trying it now. give me a few moments...
[11:25] <shirro> I imagine the main benefits for raspbian will be the tuning for the 1176, the more recent wheezy packages and that it potentially can host customisations for the Pi down the track. The optimal floating point ABI is nice for some things but it probably gets too much attention (it actually does make a massive differences in some cases like povray - but not every day use)
[11:25] * LWK_mac (~LWK@pdpc/supporter/student/lwk) Quit (Quit: Computer has gone to sleep.)
[11:25] <xranby> i find it interesting to actually test a distribution tuned for the cpu on the raspi
[11:26] <gordon_drogon> Is: "-mfpu=vfp -mfloat-abi=softfp" the right runes to pass gcc to make it use hardware FP then?
[11:26] <zgreg_> shirro: it might be interesting to put that SIMD unit to some use. the ARMv6 SIM unit is very simplistic, but it should be beneficial for quite a few things
[11:27] <xranby> we need to find someone at broadcom who can recompile the broadcom gpu drivers for armhf
[11:28] <zgreg_> xranby: already happened
[11:28] <xranby> zgreg_: .. oh ok thats nice
[11:28] <xranby> zgreg_: is the recompiled driver part of the raspbian image?
[11:29] <zgreg_> it's in the github firmware repository
[11:29] <shirro> I wish all arm boards had armhf bsps available. one of the things these guys are doing right

[11:39] <gordon_drogon> well it's a bit faster, but not by much.
[11:39] <mervaka_> and pleeeease let there be a circular buffer or two :)
[11:39] <gordon_drogon> I'll give that a go.
[11:39] <shirro> mervaka_: probably have to hand optimise asm or use intrinsics or something. not sure if gcc is going to magically use it in c
[11:40] <mervaka_> i was planning to run deep embedded, or at most RTOS

[12:45] <TopherBrink> i've had almost zero from farnell since feb
[12:45] <gordon_drogon> so I had lots of "it's coming soon" emails from RS, but as yet, no "invitation to order".
[12:45] <TopherBrink> RS on the other hand, quite a few
[12:45] <gordon_drogon> weird.
[12:45] <wjoe> I never got a thing from RS after 'regsitering interest'
[12:46] <Onlyodin> I'd say a good proportion of the reported 70,000 people who 'registered interest' with RS have become some of the 112,000 that have supposedly ordered through farnell.

[13:17] <gordon_drogon> or get a head-start and install Debian on an old PC :)
[13:17] <Hattara-pilvi> moosya: Nope, not exactly. There are several different linux distributions for RPi and you have to choose yor favourite

[13:18] <gordon_drogon> This is true, but it looks like Debian is getting the most support right now though.
[13:18] <Hattara-pilvi> Or if you don't have old PC, but a new shiney you can install VirtualBox and install debian virtually as "applocation" toy yourwindows
[13:19] <Hattara-pilvi> moosya: Fedora might be the one for you,
[13:19] <gordon_drogon> I have Debian, but I've been using it for about 18 years now...
[13:19] <moosya> ooh I like the virtual box idea. now I have a reason to install it
[13:20] <Onlyodin> I'm interested to see if the Fedora remix is going in the same direction as the full blooded version
[13:20] <Hattara-pilvi> moosya: We currently support Debian, Fedora and ArchLinux. I think this is somwhat sanish ide of which to choose. Debian: Server or super minimal install, Fedora: Easy desktop system, Arch: if you alredy use Arch on your dekstop
[13:20] <moosya> can I adjust the space allocation of the vm after I install it? Or do I need to preallocate a specific size (ie., the size of the linux distro + space for whatever)
[13:21] <Hattara-pilvi> moosya: Vbox can create a magicg hard drive image. Which will grow as you put stuff in it. Make 50GB HDD image and it takes 1Mb of space before you install the system

[13:26] <gordon_drogon> I don't have an issue with that. Supply & demand and all that.
[13:27] <SBeans> yea, it's fair enough. Just seems rather strange, as on of the key reasons to /want/ a PI is the price, or more importantly the performance per ??
[13:27] <SBeans> *one
[13:27] <TopherBrink> indeed
[13:27] <gordon_drogon> sure.
[13:27] <SBeans> I mean, it's just a low performance PC thats cheap
[13:27] <gordon_drogon> I have no issues with that - that's a good goal.
[13:27] <SBeans> and you paid 3x the price
[13:28] <SBeans> you /could/ have just bought a PC 3X as good
[13:28] <SBeans> :/
[13:28] <gordon_drogon> For 100 quid? Not sure I could..
[13:28] <gordon_drogon> However my business buys ALIX boards for the same price - 500MHz AMD Geode processor, on-board ethernet (3 ports) USB (2 ports)
[13:28] <SBeans> well, you could have purchased second hand parts...
[13:28] <gordon_drogon> I don't need to.
[13:29] <SBeans> you can have my old computer for ??100
[13:29] <SBeans> it's better than a PI
[13:29] <gordon_drogon> I've just sold 4 old PCs for 20 quid..
[13:29] <SBeans> fantastically relevant.
[13:29] <gordon_drogon> not really :)
[13:30] <SBeans> I guess my point is, your decsion was not logical, you clearly got the PI so you could have this converstation, and say you "were one of the first"

[13:30] <gordon_drogon> yes, it's just another Lnux box to me.
[13:31] <Hydrazine> doesn't compare to playing with a low level arm SoC
[13:31] <gordon_drogon> but your saying I'm not allowed to have fun?
[13:31] <Hydrazine> imho
[13:31] <gordon_drogon> I enjoy programming, I enjoy looking at new toys, having new ideas.
[13:31] <SBeans> gordon_drogon: i'm not saying anything about what you can or cannot do
[13:32] <gordon_drogon> Life is fun.
[13:32] <SBeans> just pointing out that getting a PI for 3 times the price is going completly against the reason for having one in the first place.
[13:32] <gordon_drogon> and he who dies with the most toys wins ;-)

[13:33] <gordon_drogon> at the time I couldn't justify it.
[13:33] <gordon_drogon> but for 100 quid? Sure.
[13:33] <gordon_drogon> why not?
[13:33] <SBeans> but your psudo logic, can't rationalize to that extent?
[13:33] <gordon_drogon> I'm not rationalising anything.
[13:33] <gordon_drogon> I bought it because I could.
[13:33] <SBeans> thats like saying, hmm I want an apple ??5 why not
[13:33] <SBeans> I can so why not
[13:33] <gordon_drogon> if it's a nice apple...
[13:34] <SBeans> in this case, it' a small, low performance piece of fruit
[13:34] <SBeans> which many would say == !nice apple
[13:34] <SBeans> or at least not as nice as a nice one
[13:34] <SBeans> anyway
[13:35] <SBeans> not saying you shouldnt have or what not, just seemed strange tis all.
[13:35] <gordon_drogon> yea, it's strange, and I have to say that initially I'd no intention of geting one off ebay.
[13:35] <gordon_drogon> I was going to wait.
[13:36] <gordon_drogon> however, an event came up and I had the opportunity to do some demos of my BASIC interpreter and thought it would be cool if I could demo it on a Pi.

[13:39] <moosya> debian "squeeze" is the popular choice?
[13:40] <gordon_drogon> Squeeze is the current stable release of Debian.
[13:40] <gordon_drogon> it's the one supplied by the RPi foundation.
[13:40] <gordon_drogon> so if you install squeeze in a pc/virtualbox then it's going to be fairly similar to the one of the Pi.

[14:23] <TopherBrink> new error, ugh
[14:23] <TopherBrink> fun
[14:25] * tzarc is in the process of making a kernel that allows mounting of disk images from SD/USB as the root, based on config file
[14:26] <tzarc> i.e. keep a debian distro in one image, xbmc in another image, change a text file to boot the otheer
[14:26] <tzarc> that's the theory at leas
[14:26] <tzarc> t
[14:26] <TopherBrink> nice
[14:26] <ReggieUK> oooh iso loader
[14:26] <TopherBrink> heh
[14:26] <tzarc> yeah kinda
[14:26] <tzarc> more just ability to quickly change rootfs
[14:26] <tzarc> instead of burning new SD's etc.
[14:26] <tzarc> means you shouldn't need to fuck around with fdisk either
[14:27] <TopherBrink> definitely a time/wear saver
[14:27] <tzarc> drop in a new image from someone, change a text file, done
[14:27] <ReggieUK> just a question of changing the kernel commandline and making sure the image is where you said it is
[14:27] <tzarc> yep
[14:27] <gordon_drogon> so it loads the kernel off the SD, then uses the command-line to say where /root is ?
[14:27] <tzarc> yep
[14:27] <gordon_drogon> neat.
[14:27] <ReggieUK> I did something like that for an arm9 device we hacked
[14:27] <tzarc> slightly more complex than that, but that's the gist
[14:27] <ReggieUK> the commandline editing part of it at aleast
[14:27] <TopherBrink> as an OS freak i can only approve
[14:28] <tzarc> gonna put busybox in an initramfs, much like the emergency kernel
[14:28] <gordon_drogon> someone mentioned they had NFS root working on the forums too..
[14:28] <tzarc> then have a file on the boot partition saying whether it should enter recovery
[14:28] <ReggieUK> that has got to be the biggest and best feature that they put in piOS
[14:28] <ReggieUK> tzarc, could always do a vulcan death pinch on some gpios setup as buttons to enter recovery
[14:29] <tzarc> yep
[14:29] <tzarc> but I figure you can pull SD card out just as easy :P

[14:29] <gordon_drogon> I guess the issue is making the kernel see the first /dev/sdaX as root if you have multiple USB keys plugged in...
[14:29] <tzarc> besides, if the SD is fucked, it ain't booting regardless :P
[14:29] <tzarc> the kernel+initrd mounting disk images is how we do stuff at work
[14:30] <tzarc> figure I can just do the same sort of thing
[14:30] <TopherBrink> more undefined references to gzgetc_ follw collect 2 ld returned 1 exit status ccache error 1 leaving directoryblahblah/ccache-3.1.7
[14:30] <Hattara-pilvi> gordon_drogon: Problem solved, use UUID's
[14:30] <gordon_drogon> actually, I quite fancy the idea of NFS root - probably a lot faster than my crappy old type 4 SD cards..
[14:30] <ReggieUK> nfs root shouldn't be difficult
[14:30] <tzarc> wonder whether I can switch_root to nfs
[14:30] <tzarc> if so, then it'll be piss easy

[14:56] <ShiftPlusOne> zgreg_, I like the idea of java. It just seems that everything that uses java is slower and more bloated than the non-java based alternatives. I had no problem with java until the experience with bad java programs built up. I am sure there are many good java programs which are comparable to their C and C++ alternatives, but, it's not the norm.

[14:58] <Matt> you can compile your java to native machinecode tho
[14:58] <tntexplosivesltd> I hate the language itself too
[14:58] <SBeans> I mean based on your specfic problem you are trying to solve, there are a lots of contributing factors why one choses a language
[14:58] <tntexplosivesltd> Matt: now you can
[14:58] <tntexplosivesltd> =P

[14:58] <ShiftPlusOne> tntexplosivesltd, even other languages which are on top a VM are better. I don't notice the difference between .NET/mono and C++, for example. I don't think it's the vm layer that's the problem.
[14:59] <SBeans> love and hate isnt really important or relevant
[14:59] <Matt> tntexplosivesltd: you've been able to for years
[14:59] <SBeans> except vb
[14:59] <tntexplosivesltd> it used to be a real cluster though
[14:59] <SBeans> vb can infintly die in a ditch

[14:59] <gordon_drogon> never used VB
[14:59] <tntexplosivesltd> don't

[14:59] <gordon_drogon> ok, I won't :)
[14:59] <fALSO> and any .net crap
[14:59] <SBeans> so if you want to create a cross platform desktop application, what would you use?
[15:00] <SBeans> java is top of the list
[15:00] <gordon_drogon> that would requie microsoft...
[15:00] <fALSO> c
[15:00] <tzarc> SBeans: I dislike java enough that I wrote my own interface using openGL instead
[15:00] <gordon_drogon> Oddly enough I'm in the process of creating a cross desktop platform - at least that's my hope. Using C and the SDL libraries.
[15:00] <SBeans> thats ok. but in a buisness things like this just don't happen
[15:00] <tntexplosivesltd> SBeans: nope, C or C++
[15:00] <SBeans> you just use the most suited
[15:00] <tzarc> oh of course
[15:01] <tzarc> in business it's "just write a webapp"
[15:01] <ShiftPlusOne> gordon_drogon, a gui library or more than that?
[15:01] <tntexplosivesltd> java isn't cross-platform
[15:01] <gordon_drogon> although my app. isn't really a GUI type application.
[15:01] * Cheery (~cheery@a88-113-48-33.elisa-laajakaista.fi) has joined #raspberrypi
[15:01] <SBeans> yea C and C++ would be up there, but java can be good for simpler stuff
[15:01] <gordon_drogon> SDL is very low-level.
[15:01] <SBeans> where speed isnt a major issue
[15:01] <SBeans> maybe speed of development is more important
[15:01] <tntexplosivesltd> java only works on one platform, the JRE
[15:01] <gordon_drogon> If I had to write a cross-platform GUI type application, then I've no idea.
[15:02] <tntexplosivesltd> so java is in fact not cross-platform
[15:02] <ShiftPlusOne> tntexplosivesltd, you win another 10 pedantry points. =D
[15:02] <tntexplosivesltd> =D
[15:02] <tntexplosivesltd> that's what I am here for
[15:02] <gordon_drogon> However I know that the likes of GIMP, OO/LO are cross platform, so I might look at what they use.
[15:02] <SBeans> well, yes, but then it is "cross platform" because there are many implemetnations of the jre across multiple platforms
[15:02] <tntexplosivesltd> but really, I am being more brutal than normal
[15:02] <SBeans> tntexplosivesltd: it's psudo cross platform
[15:02] <tntexplosivesltd> which is bad, I have an assignment to do
[15:03] <tntexplosivesltd> SBeans: yeah, as long as your platform has a build of JRE for it
[15:03] <SBeans> point stands, that no language is "bad" persuae , just not ideal for the situation, often personal prefernce is irrelevant
[15:03] <SBeans> indeed.
[15:03] <SBeans> it covers most bases, but not all
[15:03] <ShiftPlusOne> SBeans, it matters to many end users.
[15:03] <tntexplosivesltd> well Java can be syntactically bad
[15:04] <gordon_drogon> yea, I've just written a BASIC interpreter and while it's fun, it's of little commercial use at all.
[15:04] <TopherBrink> meanwhile a windows user wouldve had the job done
[15:04] <fALSO> lol imagine java on the pi
[15:04] <fALSO> welcome back to 1981
[15:04] <tntexplosivesltd> TopherBrink: and it wouldn't work on most servers or people with sane computers =P
[15:05] <tntexplosivesltd> and tbh I found getting C or C++ working on windows a real pain
[15:05] <ShiftPlusOne> O_o
[15:05] <SBeans> there are so many factors to think about, extra costs, ability needed to code, what coders you have already...
[15:05] <tntexplosivesltd> fALSO: =D
[15:05] <fALSO> the pi using CPU is really slow
[15:05] <dmsuse> windows aint the future :P
[15:06] <fALSO> the only good thing is the gpu
[15:06] <SBeans> thats why there are still vb applications, because a comapny full of vb coders, dont want to spend time and money on retraining
[15:06] <fALSO> so dont think that something very cpu intensive will run nicely
[15:06] <gordon_drogon> The Pi isn't aimed at running big commercial type applications.
[15:06] <tntexplosivesltd> farmboy: also there's the memory usage
[15:06] <gordon_drogon> It is slow, lacks memory.
[15:06] <tntexplosivesltd> ugh
[15:07] <tntexplosivesltd> * fALSO ^^
[15:07] <gordon_drogon> but as a teaching/leaning platform it ought to be capable.
[15:07] <ShiftPlusOne> fALSO, my G1 was mostly limited by low memory and crappy GPU, not the CPU speed.
[15:07] <tntexplosivesltd> farmboy: sorry, tab complete fail
[15:07] <fALSO> i cant still understand how they advertised it to play 1080videos etc
[15:07] <TopherBrink> windows not the future... yeah, which year is the year of linux on the desktop again..? :P
[15:07] <fALSO> when theres isnt any working audio driver
[15:07] <ShiftPlusOne> CPU speed is overrated... though <1GHz is a bit annoying
[15:07] <TopherBrink> it does play 1080p, openelec does it
[15:07] <gordon_drogon> it does aply 1080p videos - doesn't it? that's not done by the CPU though.
[15:07] <fALSO> they dont even know if it will play 1080 video with audio nicely
[15:07] <TopherBrink> with audio
[15:07] <tntexplosivesltd> TopherBrink: when people stop paying for an operating system =P
[15:07] <fALSO> because they told you so ?
[15:07] * MikeJ1971_ is now known as MikeJ1971
[15:07] <TopherBrink> because you can do it
[15:08] <TopherBrink> go build openelec and see it for yourself
[15:08] <tntexplosivesltd> "You can do it, because you can do it"
[15:08] <gordon_drogon> the CPU manages getting the data into the memory off the storage and the GPU decodes it and displays it to the video.
[15:08] <fALSO> yes you can do it
[15:08] <gordon_drogon> at least that as I understand it.
[15:08] <fALSO> but no one has still do it
[15:08] <fALSO> thats a really nice thing
[15:08] <TopherBrink> ...
[15:08] <fALSO> audio on my movies ? not required
[15:08] <fALSO> audio on my quake 3 ? not required
[15:08] <fALSO> :-P
[15:09] <dmsuse> i can see tons of people moving to linux because of pi alone :P
[15:09] * TopherBrink clicks hugo 1080p
[15:09] <TopherBrink> oh its playing. with audio.
[15:09] <TopherBrink> ON MY RPI
[15:09] <fALSO> with which player ?
[15:09] <TopherBrink> openelec as i said a few times
[15:09] <gordon_drogon> I don't have a 1080p monitor to try it with.
[15:10] <fALSO> how does it have sound if the current kernel audio driver doesnt work correctly ?
[15:10] <fALSO> bullshit ?
[15:10] <TopherBrink> yeah okay openelec is bull
[15:10] <TopherBrink> i must be imagining this
[15:10] <tntexplosivesltd> TopherBrink: so how's your linux experience been so far? First time with it?
[15:10] <TopherBrink> its very vivid
[15:10] <TopherBrink> but you say it cant be so it must be a shared hallucination
[15:10] <fALSO> tntexplosivesltd, do you have any proof ?
[15:11] <tntexplosivesltd> heh
[15:11] <tntexplosivesltd> TopherBrink: ^^
[15:11] <tntexplosivesltd> ftfy
[15:11] <fALSO> yap topherbrink
[15:11] <ShiftPlusOne> fALSO, running mocp... playing an audio file without any problems.
[15:11] <ShiftPlusOne> It's an iffy driver, but it works.
[15:11] <fALSO> thats not what i said
[15:11] <fALSO> i said playing 1080 movie with audio
[15:11] <fALSO> not cating a .wav file to /dev/dsp
[15:12] <TopherBrink> i said i'm doing just that
[15:12] <TopherBrink> as i have been since the tutorial on how to went up
[15:12] <fALSO> 14:07 >>> TopherBrink clicks hugo 1080p
[15:12] <fALSO> 14:07 < TopherBrink> oh its playing. with audio.
[15:12] <TopherBrink> which part of this is untrue
[15:12] <fALSO> tell me how that openlec plays audio
[15:12] <ShiftPlusOne> TopherBrink, unless it't in a reputable, peer reviewed science journal, you're a liar.
[15:13] <TopherBrink> i guess so
[15:13] <ShiftPlusOne> *it's
[15:13] <TopherBrink> lol
[15:13] <TopherBrink> well i'm enjoying this apparently imaginary movie just as i have many previously
[15:13] <tntexplosivesltd> Imaginationland
[15:13] <mjr> wasn't it just using openmax for audio
[15:13] <TopherBrink> the hallucinated hdmi audio is really nice too
[15:14] <TopherBrink> sounds just as if it was actually playing
[15:14] <dmsuse> pwnt
[15:14] <mjr> :]
[15:14] <mjr> you've been brainwashed by the pi team. In reality, you have a matchbox and are hallucinating the whole multimedia experience
[15:14] <TopherBrink> i KNEW IT
[15:15] <TopherBrink> i knew rs couldnt really have finally shipped that order
[15:15] <dmsuse> you should send me your pi so i can verify it ;)
[15:15] <fALSO> keep where is proof ?
[15:15] <TopherBrink> its all been a dream...
[15:15] <TopherBrink> the proof is in DOWNLOAD IT AND SEE FFS
[15:15] <tntexplosivesltd> fALSO: drop it, man
[15:15] <TopherBrink> this isnt some big hidden secret
[15:15] <mjr> the proof is LOOK BEHIND YOU IT'S A BEAR

[15:16] * gabriel9|work (~quassel@ has joined #raspberrypi
[15:16] <TopherBrink> i'm busy, you're an idiot, goodbye.
[15:16] <fALSO> oh yes
[15:16] <gordon_drogon> So whats your take on it, fALSO ? Do you have a Pi? Are you getting one?
[15:16] <tntexplosivesltd> fALSO: I now find your nickname both amusing and ironic
[15:16] <TopherBrink> if he has a pi i feel deeply sorry for those of you waiting
[15:17] <dmsuse> i doubt fALSO will want one, he can't install windows on it :P
[15:17] <tntexplosivesltd> TopherBrink: it's fine, some windows lovers got in first =P
[15:17] <tntexplosivesltd> dmsuse: o/*\o
[15:18] <TopherBrink> its amazing that openelec took the time to fake out those instructions and source for this shared hallucination
[15:18] <TopherBrink> what does it take, a dozen lines of copypaste to see
[15:18] <gordon_drogon> obviously this is my first day on #raspberrypi - for some odd reason, I thought it would be full of people who have/appreciate the Pi and what it is. Quite surprised.
[15:19] * thz_nmr is now known as thz_nmr|bnc
[15:19] <tzarc> some do
[15:19] <Matt> gordon_drogon: there are a few folks on here with their pis
[15:19] <tntexplosivesltd> gordon_drogon: yeah, abandon hope all ye who enter here
[15:19] <tzarc> kernel recompiles aren't too much fun though
[15:19] <gordon_drogon> I thought I'd seen enough on COLA, however...

[15:19] <tntexplosivesltd> see topic
[15:19] <ShiftPlusOne> gordon_drogon, you're on at a strange sort of time.
[15:20] <gordon_drogon> time to find out how to block folks on xchat now :)
[15:20] <gordon_drogon> it's lunchtime.
[15:20] <tntexplosivesltd> /ignore ?
[15:20] <ShiftPlusOne> gordon_drogon, this normally only happens for a few hours a day.
[15:20] <dmsuse> /ignore user
[15:20] <fALSO> /ignore nick!*@*
[15:20] <tntexplosivesltd> I win
[15:20] * Matt nods
[15:20] <tntexplosivesltd> A+
[15:20] <gordon_drogon> heh
[15:20] <tntexplosivesltd> XD
[15:20] <TopherBrink> i appreciate mine
[15:20] <dmsuse> but you shouldn't be using xchat its lame, try irssi :P
[15:20] <TopherBrink> it plays 1080p movies, contrary to strange belief otherwise
[15:20] <tntexplosivesltd> TopherBrink: do you appreciate linux yet?
[15:20] * ShiftPlusOne likes xchat >=/
[15:21] <dmsuse> but but.. it uses a gui...
[15:21] * gordon_drogon xchat is growing on me. I used ircii before.
[15:21] <tntexplosivesltd> I like irssi for use on a server
[15:21] * gabriel9 (~quassel@ Quit (Ping timeout: 256 seconds)
[15:21] <Matt> xchat isn't bad
[15:21] <drazyl> plenty of people who would appreciate a Pi here, just not many getting the chance yet :)
[15:21] <Matt> I've not used it in years tho
[15:21] <Matt> these days I run irssi under screen
[15:21] <dmsuse> ^^ same
[15:21] <Matt> anyway - time to head into $customer
[15:21] <drazyl> xchat here
[15:21] <tntexplosivesltd> heh
[15:21] <tntexplosivesltd> dtach + irssi
[15:22] <ShiftPlusOne> I am not quite a console-only convert. I almost followed kmandla into an X11-free environment, but it didn't stick.
[15:22] * DDave (~DDave@unaffiliated/ddave) Quit (Quit: .)
[15:22] <tntexplosivesltd> ShiftPlusOne: yeah, I tend to use a console mainly
[15:22] <gordon_drogon> I'm in my office more than out of it, so a GUI is OK for me.
[15:22] <ShiftPlusOne> though this is quite handy for finding pi-friendly software http://kmandla.wordpress.com/software/
[15:22] <tntexplosivesltd> but there's always X there
[15:22] <dmsuse> im going X-less, lynx for browsing, mpg123 for music and irssi for chat
[15:23] <tntexplosivesltd> dmsuse: use cmus
[15:23] <fALSO> theres a really nice video of it -> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ao0JmzVhQro
[15:23] <fALSO> without any sound
[15:23] <fALSO> lol
[15:23] <tntexplosivesltd> dmsuse: it's beautiful
[15:23] <gordon_drogon> I was guiless in the 80's...
[15:23] <ShiftPlusOne> tntexplosivesltd, you're wrong, mocp all the way
[15:23] <tntexplosivesltd> heh
[15:23] <gordon_drogon> Still use pine though (alpine)
[15:23] <tntexplosivesltd> ShiftPlusOne: I thought I'd hear that around here at some stage XD
[15:23] <dmsuse> tntexplosivesltd: surely that will use more resources than mpg*** ?
[15:24] <tntexplosivesltd> dmsuse: but it's a full audio player

[15:25] <TopherBrink> how dense are you at this point?
[15:25] <tntexplosivesltd> TopherBrink: hey, that's enough man
[15:26] * troth (~troth@nat/hp/x-urcvcnfssvesydby) Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[15:26] <tntexplosivesltd> in summary, one video shows no sound. Another person says they have sound. So the driver's a little iffy
[15:26] <tntexplosivesltd> as was stated a while back
[15:26] <tntexplosivesltd> now both of you accept that the other probably is right
[15:26] <tzarc> I have pineapple jelly.
[15:26] <ShiftPlusOne> to be fair XBMC uses openmax directly
[15:26] <tntexplosivesltd> =O
[15:26] <ShiftPlusOne> afaik
[15:27] <TopherBrink> he's arguing it cant even do audio
[15:27] <ShiftPlusOne> not arguing
[15:27] <ShiftPlusOne> asserting
[15:27] <tntexplosivesltd> TopherBrink: he said (many times) that the driver was broken
[15:27] <TopherBrink> okay we admit it, we're all lying, the foundation is lying, openelec are in on it and its a gigantic conspiracy.
[15:27] <TopherBrink> or... you are wrong.
[15:27] <TopherBrink> which of these two things is most likely to be true
[15:28] <tntexplosivesltd> you just pick a tangent and run with it, don't you TopherBrink
[15:28] <tntexplosivesltd> 01:06 <+fALSO> when theres isnt any working audio driver
[15:28] <fALSO> yap, no alsa or oss
[15:28] <tntexplosivesltd> so to his knowledge, the audio driver is broken
[15:28] <tntexplosivesltd> would this not cause both situations
[15:28] <fALSO> i know that
[15:29] <tntexplosivesltd> the audio is ifft from the audio driver
[15:29] <tntexplosivesltd> * iffy
[15:29] * jgarrett (~jgarrett@ has joined #raspberrypi
[15:29] <TopherBrink> i bet this is one of the nutters who doesnt believe we went to the moon either
[15:29] <tntexplosivesltd> so, you're both right
[15:29] <TopherBrink> i have that feeling.
[15:29] <tzarc> I no longer have pineapple jelly :(
[15:30] <tntexplosivesltd> TopherBrink: that's entirely unrelated
[15:30] <dmsuse> tzarc: did you just say its peanutbutter jelly time ?
[15:30] <TopherBrink> logic and evidence be damned
[15:30] <tntexplosivesltd> now, if no-one has anything useful to say, shut up.
[15:30] <tzarc> nope
[15:30] <tzarc> it was pineapple jelly time
[15:30] <tzarc> but that time has passed

[15:31] <tzarc> :P
[15:31] <tntexplosivesltd> heh
[15:31] <tzarc> I think I'm gonna just stick to compiling the kernel in a chroot on my main machine
[15:32] <tzarc> compiling it on the pi is taking aaaaaaaaaaaaaages
[15:32] <TopherBrink> i suppose we could see fALSO as proof of why we need to get computers like the rpi into schools
[15:32] <SBeans> chrooting does seem the best way
[15:32] <TopherBrink> eliminating ignorance is a great cause
[15:32] <SBeans> although Im quite use to low performance machines
[15:32] <fALSO> yap we need computers without 2d drivers on schools
[15:33] <fALSO> to teach the children
[15:33] <ShiftPlusOne> tzarc, don't even try.
[15:33] <tzarc> SBeans: same.. except it's not really the machine, but more the "framework" I have to work in
[15:33] <tntexplosivesltd> TopherBrink: enough!!
[15:33] <rm> "that'll teach them!!"
[15:33] <tzarc> ShiftPlusOne: learning things yourself is the best way! :P
[15:33] <ShiftPlusOne> tzarc, yup, but compiling the kernel on pi isn't going to teach you anything.
[15:33] <tzarc> yes it will... not to compile on the pi
[15:33] <ShiftPlusOne> lol
[15:34] <ShiftPlusOne> fair enough... that's how I learned, so I can't fault you there.
[15:34] <tzarc> :)
[15:34] * tzarc lets his "make -j9" do its thing
[15:34] <ShiftPlusOne> why not -j900 so that it's 100 times faster!?
[15:34] <tzarc> lol
[15:35] <tzarc> actually it should probably be 17

[16:23] <SBeans> also due to the long dry period, the ground is hard and the water jsut runs straight out to sea
[16:23] <SBeans> rather than wetting the moor properly

[16:34] <Guest10701> http://weather.dynalias.org/content/weathercam
[16:34] <Guest10701> It must have been huge for them to notice it
[16:35] <IT_Sean> tell the neighbors to bugger off, then install more webcams
[16:35] <gordon_drogon> it was just a little old panasonic one. Ethernet connected.
[16:35] <Guest10701> IT_Sean: It was probably pointed down to their sunbathing daughter in the garden
[16:35] <gordon_drogon> the road is narrow - one way though.

[16:37] <gordon_drogon> panasonic BL-c10
[16:37] <gordon_drogon> positively ancient.
[16:37] <SBeans> actually not helpful for a drought, and in some cases makes thing worse

[16:38] <Guest10701> SBeans: webcams make things worse?
[16:38] <SBeans> this is the webcam I look at daily
[16:38] <SBeans> sorry I was reading up
[16:39] <SBeans> not about the cam
[16:39] <SBeans> about the "floods"
[16:39] <Guest10701> someone needs to be shot for their choice of fonts
[16:39] <SBeans> idd
[16:39] <Guest10701> Why are all these webcams static images?
[16:39] <SBeans> becuase less data
[16:39] <SBeans> and it's not really important to have a constant update
[16:40] <SBeans> every 15mins is more than enough
[16:40] <IT_Sean> but... at 15 minute intervals... you might miss a sheep wandering by or something! :p

[16:43] <Guest10701> that woman is wearing way too much pink
[16:43] <Guest10701> especially for an ivory themed wedding
[16:44] <SBeans> the flooding is kind of ironic, firstly because it's been so dry all the rain runs straight into the rivers, and then into the sea, without getting soaked by the moor, and without finding it's way into important resivours etc, secondly it has flooded some water plants with dirty water so they have to slow down there work, bit of a nightmare really
[16:45] <Guest10701> Well it's summer, it's going to rain whether you want it to or not
[16:45] <SBeans> I want it too
[16:45] <SBeans> Im a kayaker, cant get enough of the rain

[16:56] <tntexplosivesltd> any messages?

[17:54] <gordon_drogon> well done.
[17:55] <gordon_drogon> I wish I had time & resources to help, but I was a bit busy a few weeks ago when things started to gather pace.
[17:55] <Guest99999> gordon_drogon: any motion sensing functionality?
[17:56] <gordon_drogon> I did run it up this morning though - was unable to compile my own project with it due to missing libraries - I'm sure they'll come.
[17:56] <mpthompson> No problem. I'm keeping the circle of people helping very small just to keep things manageable and moving along.
[17:56] <gordon_drogon> Yes, it has a sensor - push the "sensor" button.
[17:56] <gordon_drogon> it's crude though.
[17:56] <Guest99999> You could catch the neighbours getting the paper
[17:56] <gordon_drogon> it's mostly used to start the capture to FTP/email.
[17:56] <mpthompson> Yeah, the repository looks like swiss cheese right now. Lots of holes to be filled in over the coming weeks.
[17:56] <gordon_drogon> as soon as the SDL libraries are done I'll be there :)
[17:57] <gordon_drogon> am I right in thinking Debian needs to be compiled natively rather than cross compiled?
[17:57] <mpthompson> They'll be showing up sometime. We have just over 10,000 packages to go. About 7000 have been completed so far.

[18:01] <gordon_drogon> I only joined in this morning - mostly because of the hard fp stuff!
[18:02] <mpthompson> Does SDL work fine under armel? That's the direct access to the frame buffer. Correct?
[18:02] <gordon_drogon> I did find out that I can compile stuff to use hard fp under the existing debian though, so hard fp with the soft api (or whatever it's called)
[18:02] <gordon_drogon> Yes, SDL works fine - direct and under X
[18:02] <gordon_drogon> although it's slow as there is no 2D accelleration.

[18:03] <mpthompson> Yeah, hard fp using the soft fp abi would have been the backup plan. Fortunately, we didn't need to go that less optimal route.
[18:03] <gordon_drogon> my 'benchmark' went from 35 seconds down to 31 seconds... so not brilliant, however.
[18:04] <mpthompson> Did the benchmark just include integer calculations?
[18:04] <gordon_drogon> it's a bit contived - it's my BASIC interpreter plotting mandelbrots.
[18:04] <gordon_drogon> So half the time is spent interpreting the program and half doing floating pint.
[18:04] <SpeedEvil> ...
[18:05] * SpeedEvil ponders basic with a JIT engine
[18:05] <gordon_drogon> JIT to native ARM?
[18:05] <SpeedEvil> yes
[18:05] <gordon_drogon> it's probably not that hard (relatively speaking)
[18:05] <SpeedEvil> I suppose you could abuse one of the JS engines
[18:06] <mpthompson> Yeah, that will be an issue. Armhf is really not going to buy much at all with regards to the interpretting side of things. You really won't notice improvments until you can get something with a large percentage of floating point operations.
[18:06] <gordon_drogon> I already tokenise heavilly and build u pa symbol table of constants and variables.
[18:06] <SpeedEvil> Actually - basic to JS'd be pretty trivial
[18:06] <gordon_drogon> I may code a native mandelbrot using C and SDL.
[18:06] <SpeedEvil> and you could rip out all of the DOM stuff
[18:06] <gordon_drogon> DOM?
[18:06] <huene> document object model
[18:06] <huene> iirc
[18:07] <gordon_drogon> not something I'm familair with.
[18:07] <SpeedEvil> It's all of the 'page/browser' related bits of javascript
[18:07] <gordon_drogon> ah, ok. I try not to touch that stuff :)

[18:09] <mpthompson> I'm interested in teaching my son game programming and I've been playing around with the Gosu library. Pretty good stuff. It's 2D, but uses OpenGL or OpenGL ES to accelerate 2D graphics.
[18:09] <mkopack> Nothing wrong with 2D gaming??? most of what we ran in the 80's was 2D???
[18:09] <mkopack> And those games were FUN
[18:09] <mpthompson> I'm using it under Ruby which kills performance a bit there, but there are C/C++ access as well.
[18:10] <mkopack> more about gameplay, less about glitzy graphics
[18:10] <mpthompson> Agreed.

[18:11] <mpthompson> One of the things that kills kids interests is looking at a modern game and not even understanding where they can even begin to create such a thing.
[18:11] <gordon_drogon> I have a tame 6 year old (of a friend!) who's very keen, so I'm going to show him some BASIC stuff and see how h gets on.
[18:11] <Davespice> ReggieUK: yeah I agree there
[18:12] <mpthompson> For the most part, those games have production teams that rival blockbuster movies.
[18:12] <ReggieUK> you've really got to go back to the basics to teach them properly I think
[18:12] <gordon_drogon> its' funny - 35 years ago, space invaders was really cool, yet today, they're knocked out as a simple programming excercise
[18:12] <ReggieUK> indeed but the game is still cool and still infuriatingly hard despite the lack of things that you've actually got to do in the game
[18:13] <gordon_drogon> I worked for a small games co. some 14 years ago.. We had 5 programmers, 5 artists and a full-time producer.
[18:13] <ReggieUK> shoot or don't shoot, choice is yours :D
[18:13] <mpthompson> I believe it's really necessary to show kids what can be done that is fun on a much simpler level.
[18:13] <gordon_drogon> I met the guy behind Fignition last weekend.
[18:13] <Guest99999> bullshit, each generation has their nostalgia games, and what you found entertaining wouldn't have the same impact.
[18:13] <hotwings> morning.. any worthy rpi news today?
[18:13] <TopherBrink> i might clone donkey kong in some manner that involves hammering apple products and/or fans
[18:13] <gordon_drogon> amazing - he's basically re-made an 8-bit micro with video out from an atmel chip.
[18:13] <Guest99999> hotwings: http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/df-hardware-raspberry-pi-review
[18:14] <Davespice> yeah, when I was in school I wrote a track and field button basher game - where you just raced two cursors from left to right on the screen - we played it for HOURS, and killed about 4 keyboards in one afternoon :) whoops...
[18:14] <gordon_drogon> and then, as a bit of an excercise, I wrote a BASIC interpreter a few months ago. just goes to show!
[18:14] <gordon_drogon> (although I'm not sure what it shows - probably that I'm a muppet :)
[18:15] <hotwings> Guest99999 - read that a little earlier actually. about what i'd guess at this point :)

[19:26] <SpeedEvil> No, of course it's not.
[19:26] <zgreg_> there is no standard linux userland stack, simple as that
[19:26] <SpeedEvil> To a degree.

[19:48] <IT_Sean> They will take your money when it ships.
[19:48] <NucWin> i used the link in my friends email
[19:48] <IT_Sean> And you can't critisize them when you circumvented the system they put in place to prevent that issue
[19:48] <NucWin> was close to setting off my scam alarm but did a few checks first and seemed very legit
[19:49] <IT_Sean> My point is, they invited your friend to order because they had a raspi for him. They didn't invite you because they didn't have one for you.
[19:49] <NucWin> i was awake at 5.55am till about 6:15 trying to get early but no websites where working and i fell back asleep

[20:16] <Hydrazine> is it possible for drivers to acces the dma's of the Rpi?
[20:16] <Hydrazine> as in request a dma, not just taking it by force
[20:17] <Hydrazine> or do we need some kind of kernel module written for that?
[20:17] -NickServ- MABot!datagutt@static. has just authenticated as you (DataBot)
[20:17] <SpeedEvil> you need a kernel module to do DMA, yes.
[20:17] <Hydrazine> awww
[20:18] <Hydrazine> but do we have one for the rpi?
[20:18] <mervaka> that would be awesome :)
[20:18] <mervaka> i need to cut my DMA teeth.
[20:18] <Hydrazine> would be great for spi and other pheripherals
[20:18] <mervaka> ya
[20:18] <SpeedEvil> Of course various things use DMA
[20:18] <mervaka> well, it would be 99% for SPI
[20:19] <mervaka> i'd imagine
[20:19] <Hydrazine> I2S would profit too, if we had the pins :P
[20:19] <SpeedEvil> The question is - is there enough data in the datasheet to implement ift for peripherals that it's not enabled for
[20:19] <mervaka> meh
[20:19] <mervaka> i'd love i2s
[20:19] <mervaka> spi will have to do
[20:19] <Hydrazine> how hard would it be to hack spi to i2s
[20:20] <mervaka> easier to just spec spi
[20:20] <mervaka> surely
[20:20] <SpeedEvil> Different busses
[20:20] <mervaka> yeah but
[20:20] <Hydrazine> yeah, but the idea is the same
[20:20] <mervaka> i mean, dont hack it, just use spi

[20:51] <Hexxeh> when using an initrd with the raspberry pi, where exactly does it go?
[20:51] <Hexxeh> does it have to be baked into the kernel image itself?
[20:51] <Hexxeh> since there's no obvious way to specify a separate file

[21:16] <hotwings> Guest91121 - when you have a list of cards that work for some but not others, the list is basically useless at this point
[21:17] <Cheery> gordon_drogon: I think... you should share the sources. ^^
[21:17] <gordon_drogon> I will in time.
[21:17] <hotwings> supposedly the sd card mess is supposed to be fixed soon though
[21:17] <gordon_drogon> You need to apt-get install libsdl
[21:17] <Guest91121> hotwings: It's a wiki. If the list is wrong then change it.
[21:17] <jeroenh> I have a 5+ years old card that works fine, but I was hoping to get a bit more speed
[21:17] <plugwash> the real problem is that just because two cards are marked the same doesn't gaurantee the internals are the same
[21:17] <plugwash> so i'm not sure such a list can ever be "right"

[21:19] <gordon_drogon> I suspect it's mostly pot-luck on the SD card front for now...
[21:19] <gordon_drogon> hehe...
[21:20] <Cheery> gordon_drogon: it's interesting sort of interpreter as it looks like actually useful and functional
[21:20] <Cheery> gordon_drogon: according to examples you shown
[21:20] <hotwings> jeroenh - i read there is but of course until its available for download, its just talk :)
[21:21] <jeroenh> where? :)
[21:21] <gordon_drogon> well it's farirly standard basic with a modern approach - proper loops, procedures, functions, etc.
[21:21] <hotwings> Guest91121 - well, you tell me.. what a card works for some people but not others...does it belong on the list or not?
[21:21] <hotwings> or should every entry come with a disclaimer that it may not actually work?
[21:21] <Guest91121> hotwings: Do whatever you want.
[21:22] <gordon_drogon> I may pop into my local electrical shoppie tomorow - they sell digital cameras so probably have a selection of SD cards.

[21:25] <jeroenh> Guest91121: the average price was way below that of the store, I'm certain that store is making quite a lot on those cards
[21:25] <gordon_drogon> oh I understand the technology OK... just never had anything to use one in until now :)
[21:25] <hotwings> jeroenh - real stores have overhead and dont all pay for products equally.. additionally, each store/company chooses their own pricing in most cases
[21:25] <wolfet> wheres the best store to order from?
[21:25] <gordon_drogon> fortunately my laptops have built-in sd wread/writers..
[21:26] <Guest91121> wolfet: location?
[21:26] <wolfet> americas
[21:26] <hotwings> because something cost a lot more at a real store vs. online, it doesnt automatically mean the online one is fake/clone/worse/bootleg/etc
[21:26] <Guest91121> wolfet: which country?
[21:26] <gordon_drogon> O ordered from Farnell, but the one I have came from RS.

[21:26] <wolfet> does it matter?
[21:26] <Guest91121> yes
[21:27] <wolfet> why? because not all stores ship international?
[21:27] <gordon_drogon> well we can see your IP address and make a guess....
[21:27] <Guest91121> wolfet: Not in this case
[21:28] <wolfet> k
[21:28] <wolfet> well, which is the best place
[21:28] <gordon_drogon> have a look at the farnell / element14 website and see what they suggest for you.

[21:41] <gordon_drogon> that's all that's important :)

[21:45] <wolfet> in summary, i can order a raspberry now, there's plenty of them in stock?
[21:45] <wolfet> or is it like i have to be on a waiting list
[21:45] <wolfet> im 98
[21:46] <Guest91121> wolfet: Nope
[21:46] <gordon_drogon> you can oder it and be on the waiting list.
[21:46] <Guest91121> wolfet: Waiting list
[21:46] <wolfet> fuck waiting list
[21:46] <gordon_drogon> get one off ebay then.
[21:46] <ajtag> waiting list, unless you go to sainburys
[21:46] <wolfet> where's that?
[21:46] <Guest91121> wolfet: They are still being made, it's not like there are any being kept in a factory somewhere
[21:46] <ajtag> or tesco/ wallmart/ asda
[21:46] <wolfet> i hate those order page reloading fuckfests

[21:47] <wolfet> having the order page bomb out due to overload
[21:47] <wolfet> yea
[21:47] <wolfet> fuck ebay too
[21:47] <gordon_drogon> they're not overloaded right now.
[21:47] <wolfet> but there's a waiting list
[21:47] <wolfet> how big is it?
[21:47] <gordon_drogon> yes, but the ordering pages are not overloaded.
[21:47] <wolfet> like 10000 people ahead of me?

[21:51] <wolfet> the sheeva plug seems more interesting
[21:51] <gordon_drogon> just under 3 months in total until I get the one I odered.
[21:51] <wolfet> k
[21:51] <Cheery> really?
[21:51] <Cheery> nobody has really waited for years at a computing platform that'd be cheap enough to give away?
[21:51] <Cheery> am I the only one who waited for that before rpi?
[21:52] <dmsuse> $50 is cheap enough to give away? just how rich are you?
[21:52] <gordon_drogon> I waited for my BBC Micro..
[21:52] <wolfet> isnt it 35$?
[21:52] <dmsuse> lol

[21:52] <dmsuse> is it heck

[21:53] <plugwash> $35 is the nominal price for a model B but that is before shipping/handling/tax/etc :/

[21:53] <dmsuse> Cheery: i give it away ;)
[21:53] <wolfet> ddave?
[21:53] <Cheery> dmsuse: but 50$ is enough to actually give away as a.. say gift.
[21:54] <DDave> wolfet: yes it does..
[21:54] <dmsuse> a gift maybe :P
[21:54] <wolfet> dammit
[21:54] <plugwash> there are many arm systems out there that don't have the hype and associated waiting lists that the Pi has, they all tend to be either a lot more expensive than the Pi or a lot less capable though
[21:54] <wolfet> waiting list too?

[22:26] <Cheery> thank you. :) though trying to get better really.

[22:26] <des2> If only they had designed it so it fit into an Altoids tin....
[22:26] <gordon_drogon> not a case as such, however.
[22:27] <SimonT> gordon_drogon: that looks really cool/handy

[22:27] <SimonT> The Pi's don't have the header pins right?
[22:27] <Cheery> "essence" itself is a programming environment, with an editor where you can use a 'document' instead of 'text' for source code.
[22:27] <gordon_drogon> Yes they do.
[22:28] <SimonT> Oh, my understanding was you'd have solder them on yourself
[22:28] <SimonT> but that's better for me that it comes with the header pins :)
[22:29] <trench> Your order is shipped
[22:29] <trench> ;)
[22:29] <mkopack> SimonT: They originally weren't going to include them, but Eben forgot to take them off the BOM when it got sent to the manufacturer, and the price they got quoted with them on by the chinese manufacturer was low enough that they decided to just leave them on
[22:29] <Cheery> trench: I keep wondering when I'll get that happy message
[22:29] <SimonT> mkopack: Ah ok, that explains my confusion. Thanks!
[22:29] <trench> Cheery: where are you in the world?
[22:29] <gordon_drogon> I actually have a large breadboard blu-taked to it right now though.
[22:29] <Cheery> mkopack: best decision from Eben really.
[22:30] <SimonT> Cheery: same..
[22:30] <Cheery> mkopack: or well. good one. not sure what other decisions he did :)
[22:30] <trench> Cheery: .no here
[22:30] <mkopack> Well, yes and no???
[22:30] <gordon_drogon> I suspect many would get fried by people not confident about soldering ...
[22:30] <Cheery> trench: scandinavia.
[22:30] <mkopack> Yes because it standardizes the GPIO pin orientation and gender.
[22:31] <mkopack> Bad because it removes some of the flexibility so you might not be able to use it the way you were hoping to when it was a DIY connector
[22:31] * Maccer (~Maccer@ Quit (Excess Flood)
[22:31] <Cheery> really.. I think it's good they have those by default. makes it lot suspectible for random GPIO hacks :)

[22:31] <trench> Cheery: you preordered it from farnell.com right?
[22:31] <Cheery> mkopack: yep
[22:32] <SimonT> mkopack: maybe for you ;)
[22:32] <SimonT> I'm not very good at soldering
[22:33] <Cheery> I might be lazy enough to not bother with soldering them into rpi.
[22:33] <Cheery> but since they are there.. I guess I'll use them
[22:33] <RaYmAn> SimonT: I suspect there are a lot of people like us who sucks at soldering, but still want to use the gpio pins :)
[22:34] * RaYmAn is certainly a hell of a lot better at programming than soldering
[22:34] <SimonT> Will future Pi's have the pins or just that one batch?
[22:34] <Cheery> SimonT: who knows?
[22:34] <RaYmAn> I really hope they'll keep it on all
[22:34] <Cheery> actually I feel broadcom made a biz. from this.
[22:34] <Cheery> a huge biz.
[22:35] <RaYmAn> They could probably sell a version without later on for the people who want diff stuff
[22:35] <Cheery> you know.. a computing platform everybody will know
[22:35] <acfrazier> pin headers are easy as hell to solder

[22:35] <gordon_drogon> current mess o'spagetti :)
[22:36] <Cheery> it'll be everywhere if this continues
[22:36] <Cheery> gordon_drogon: that case's cool
[22:36] <gordon_drogon> I think they'll all have the GPIO header now.
[22:36] <SimonT> gordon_drogon: your breadboard looks a little big ;)
[22:36] <Cheery> gordon_drogon: you've used jumper wires to connect it?
[22:36] <gordon_drogon> it's a bit of a fiddle to get the SD card in/out - hence the blue tape on it!
[22:37] <gordon_drogon> yes - female to male jumpers from the GPIO to the breadboard.
[22:37] <SimonT> for the case that is. I know small breaboards can get cluttered quickly

[22:37] <gordon_drogon> I made the mistake of ordering the case/base without the breadboard - doh!
[22:37] <gordon_drogon> I have it now, so tomorow I'll split the 2 so the arduino board isseparate.
[22:37] <SimonT> gordon_drogon: I almost missed the fine print about the breadboard not being included
[22:38] <gordon_drogon> yea, I did miss it!!!

[22:38] <gordon_drogon> that's the jumper wires - I got 2 packs.
[22:38] <_av500_> wow, wires
[22:38] * gordon_drogon grins.
[22:39] <gordon_drogon> I know, but they're nice and pre-made. I originally cut-down an old floppy disk cable and soldered pins to the end, but I thought I might as well get nice wires.
[22:39] <_av500_> the floppy god hates you now

[22:40] <gordon_drogon> that's a piccy of it at the even I went to last satuday - with the cut-up floppy cable :)
[22:40] <Cheery> you're busy already with it. :D
[22:40] <gordon_drogon> sure.
[22:40] <SimonT> Ugh, I can't wait to get my hands on a pi..
[22:41] <gordon_drogon> but I've done lots of stuff in the past with arduinos and home built microcontrollers, etc.

[22:41] <Cheery> gordon_drogon: probably helps yeah.
[22:41] <gordon_drogon> yea, not managed to blow it up yet - not for lack of trying though!
[22:41] <Cheery> gordon_drogon: after I've tried that it works.. I guess my first trick will be to connect it up to UART.
[22:42] <gordon_drogon> it's a 3.3v uart...
[22:42] <Cheery> yes
[22:42] <RaYmAn> you can get extremely cheap TTL (3.3v) UART to USB adapters on ebay :)
[22:42] <gordon_drogon> have to say, I'm not going to bother with the uart - i've no immediate need for it though.
[22:42] * Milos|Netbook (~Milos@pdpc/supporter/student/milos) Quit (Ping timeout: 260 seconds)
[22:42] <gordon_drogon> you might as well get a USB to serial adapter.
[22:42] <gordon_drogon> with a proper 9-pin socket on it, etc.
[22:42] <Cheery> gordon_drogon: I plan to use it in osdeving
[22:42] <gordon_drogon> I talk to the arduino via usb serial.
[22:43] <gordon_drogon> ah, you'll need serial then :)
[22:43] <ajtag> SimonT: you can get something very similar with 22/7
[22:43] <RaYmAn> tbh, with these ttl-to-USB, no external components are required - you just attach the wires directly.
[22:43] <SimonT> ajtag: similar to what?
[22:43] <gordon_drogon> You could always use another Pi as the terminal and run minicom on it ;-)
[22:43] <RaYmAn> which is a hell of a lot easier than having to throw in max232's or whatever they use these days :P
[22:43] <ajtag> pi
[22:44] <gordon_drogon> then just connect the pins directly!!!
[22:44] * ajtag runs and hides
[22:44] <Cheery> gordon_drogon: you think I'll get two Pis from somewhere lol? :D
[22:44] <gordon_drogon> heh
[22:44] <SimonT> lol
[22:44] <Cheery> I'd guess not anytime soon
[22:44] <gordon_drogon> connecting to a 5V serial shouldn't be hard - people are saying they've done it.
[22:44] * jluisn (~quassel@ has joined #raspberrypi
[22:44] <RaYmAn> I wonder how many of the orders they have received are from people who attempted to order from both RS and Farnell
[22:44] <Cheery> good
[22:45] * Milos|Netbook (~Milos@pdpc/supporter/student/milos) has joined #raspberrypi
[22:45] <SimonT> that went way over my head until I goggled it and did the math... :/
[22:45] <gordon_drogon> you'll need a dropper on the input to the Pi to take the 5v to the 3.3
[22:45] <Cheery> anyway the 'essence' is related to that osdeving project. :)
[22:45] <SpeedEvil> gordon_drogon: resistive divider
[22:45] <gordon_drogon> yes.
[22:45] <gordon_drogon> what sort of OS are you looking at developing?
[22:45] <ajtag> :D
[22:46] <Cheery> 'essence' will have a sort of tree editing system where you work on. it should be helping both user and programming env.
[22:46] <RaYmAn> gordon_drogon: alternatively you can just get one of these 3$ things http://www.ebay.com/itm/CP2102-USB-2-0-to-UART-TTL-6PIN-Module-Serial-Converter-/130683943875?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item1e6d5ebbc3
[22:46] <RaYmAn> ;)
[22:47] * Syliss (~Syliss@ has joined #raspberrypi
[22:47] <Cheery> gordon_drogon: I'll make a mixed static/dynamic typed language into essence
[22:47] <RaYmAn> It's almost cheaper than going out to get the components to put the same thing together yourself, lol
[22:47] <ajtag> am using a converter from sparcfun for the gpio and a ftdi adapter for serial
[22:47] <Cheery> gordon_drogon: probably in a way that the compiled code will be 'optimization' into vm-code that'd be otherwise run directly.
[22:48] <gordon_drogon> and putting that on the "bare metal" rather than run it under e.g. Linux?
[22:48] <Cheery> gordon_drogon: the OS itself I think I'll code with this language.
[22:48] <gordon_drogon> ok
[22:48] <Cheery> yeah.
[22:48] <gordon_drogon> good luck - sounds intersting.
[22:49] * esotera_ (~jamie@94-193-222-75.zone7.bethere.co.uk) Quit (Quit: Bye)
[22:49] <gordon_drogon> yea, those little serial converters are a bit of a no-brainer!
[22:50] <Cheery> trying to handle it. :) that ui -stuff is for the editor.
[22:50] <Cheery> and I have the document model already
[22:50] <gordon_drogon> and it's using SDL?
[22:50] <gordon_drogon> or just texty type console?
[22:50] <Cheery> once I got some DOM rendering code done.. I guess the editor itself will fly.
[22:50] <Cheery> it's using SDL
[22:51] <gordon_drogon> SDL is pretty slow on the Pi right now )-:
[22:51] <gordon_drogon> at least that's what I'm finding with my BASIC which uses it.
[22:51] <Cheery> well using it only for bootstrap
[22:51] <Cheery> after the editor I have the vm in queue.
[22:52] <RaYmAn> SDL is well, extremely slow in general, unless you use it "very correctly", lol. Though, having proper 2D acceleration does help a lot
[22:52] <mjr> sdl type stuff isn't probably going to be very fast on it ever, at least on full hd or something...
[22:52] <RaYmAn> you can win A LOT by only updating the regions that have actually changed etc
[22:52] <gordon_drogon> yea, I've got the hang of SDL myself now - tricky in a non-game type application!
[22:52] <Cheery> studied JONESFORTH last winter and concluded the techniques presented there would help me with this :)
[22:53] <gordon_drogon> it's hard for me to use update_rect as I never know what's been written to )-:
[22:53] <gordon_drogon> Ah- it was you asking about Forth on the forums...
[22:53] <Cheery> the problem with a full programming environment is that it's easily too complex to create
[22:53] <RaYmAn> gordon_drogon: you don't write to the surface yourself? :P (you could keep track of what regions you write to)
[22:53] <gordon_drogon> I'm GordonH on the forums...
[22:53] <Cheery> gordon_drogon: I thought I were answering forth questions :)
[22:53] <gordon_drogon> my application is a BASIC interpreter... I could track what the program writes, but...
[22:54] <RaYmAn> I guess it does get a bit complex easily =P
[22:54] <gordon_drogon> yea, you never know what the program is doing :)
[22:54] * Maccer (~Maccer@ has joined #raspberrypi
[22:54] <gordon_drogon> I decided I'd have an UPDATE keyword, so call UPDATE in the BASIC program to do a screen update.
[22:55] <RaYmAn> yeah
[22:55] <gordon_drogon> it does updates on print new-lines and when pausing for input.
[22:55] <RaYmAn> so you could have an UPDATERECTS or similar
[22:55] <RaYmAn> =P
[22:55] <gordon_drogon> sure - if I knew what parts of the screen had been written to.
[22:55] <Cheery> gordon_drogon: doing a compiled language gets easier a bit if you think of compiling as an optimization
[22:55] <RaYmAn> gordon_drogon: the program presumably does know :P
[22:55] <Cheery> gordon_drogon: or well.. I haven't managed to do anything useful without considering it that way
[22:56] <gordon_drogon> well, the BASIC program... it could be plotting points anywhere...
[22:56] <gordon_drogon> my BASIC tokenises on entry and builds up a symbol table for variables and constants...
[22:56] <Cheery> gordon_drogon: you could let the user optimize that
[22:56] <Cheery> gordon_drogon: or then switch to opengl from SDL :)
[22:56] <gordon_drogon> yea, but actually, it's been OK so far.
[22:57] <Cheery> okay
[22:57] <RaYmAn> yeah, I guess you really do need to do it in the interpreter if you want speed - keep track of e.g. writes to screen, then on update only writes (partially-merged) regions
[22:57] <gordon_drogon> what I've found is that it's "fast enough" for general use.
[22:57] <gordon_drogon> it was only relatively recently that I actually thought about the Pi.
[22:57] <gordon_drogon> I wrote the bulk of the interpreter in January...
[22:57] <Cheery> okay
[22:58] <Cheery> well I've thought about osdeving on raspberry pi for a while.. but didn't thought that I'd do it with my own language
[22:58] <gordon_drogon> on my 1.6GHz atom desktop it performed adequately on some tests I was running - e.g. aminating some turtle graphics spirals at 60 frames/sec...
[22:59] <gordon_drogon> however I might need to do something on the Pi as the same thing barely goes at 11 fps )-:
[22:59] <RaYmAn> at least you have a Pi :>
[22:59] <gordon_drogon> er, yes :)
[23:00] <gordon_drogon> you could have a qemu pretend one - I did that for a while to prove it would compile and run...
[23:00] <Cheery> gordon_drogon: I guess if you want to do better you'd need to use opengl on it
[23:00] <gordon_drogon> possibly, but I know nothing about openGL - all I want to do is put pixels on a screen.
[23:01] <RaYmAn> Cheery: opengl isn't really necessarily very good at putting individual pixels on screen though :/
[23:01] <Cheery> RaYmAn: well probably no for most things.
[23:01] <RaYmAn> I suppose if you built up a list and did batch rendering for them it would be ok, but..
[23:01] <Cheery> RaYmAn: but it does help
[23:01] <gordon_drogon> it's actually the first time I've done graphics on a modern X windows system.
[23:01] <Cheery> ..unless Rpi has 2D accel
[23:02] * Compy (~Compy@ Quit ()
[23:02] <gordon_drogon> I was somewhat dissapointed in just how complex it could be to do simple stuff - until I found SDL.
[23:02] <Cheery> gordon_drogon: I guess RPi will be the first time I'll do graphics on no system at all. :P
[23:02] <Cheery> or wait..
[23:02] <RaYmAn> I guess opengl is better now - Last I tried, I was trying out a software renderer using either OpenGL for pixel-plotting or SDL - and SDL was soooo much faster
[23:02] <Cheery> forgot my x86 bootsector game of life
[23:02] <RaYmAn> but that was without batching/lists
[23:03] <gordon_drogon> I've done lots of little embedded things though, but never had a task for graphics on unix/Linux...

[23:04] <gordon_drogon> ha, that's neat. right, tomorow I write a Life in BASIC.

[23:06] <Cheery> I used it before git became so common there was no point anymore
[23:06] <gordon_drogon> I'm trying to get my head round git, but I've used cvs for a while.

[23:11] <Cheery> it's*
[23:11] <gordon_drogon> ok - yea, thats what I meant.
[23:11] <Cheery> or whatever that is which comes with hg
