[0:01] <_av500_> carldani: it was not serious
[0:01] <a_c_r_> Da|Mummy: yeah. you just need to add more ram via the USB port
[0:02] <Da|Mummy> swap?
[0:02] <a_c_r_> nah. prob just a few gb of GDDR5 so you wouln't have to manage the memory split
[0:03] * s[x] (~sx]@eth589.qld.adsl.internode.on.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:03] <CcSsNET> diablo3 really does have low requirements. it doesnt even speed up my cpu fan or gpu fans when running haha
[0:03] <CcSsNET> max settings
[0:05] <CcSsNET> but yea. not for armel, its x86
[0:05] <a_c_r_> yeah, you'd probably just need the new windows arm and a binary emulator to run the amd64 binaries
[0:05] <a_c_r_> seems easy enough

[0:07] <Da|Mummy> maybe blizzard will release source

[1:03] <danfoshizzle> How well does the raspberry pi play avi video?
[1:04] <plugwash> probablly pretty badly
[1:04] <danfoshizzle> Got my rasp_pi today, waiting for my sd to arrive tomorrow, just wondering if its worth converting them to mp4?
[1:04] <hamitron> won't it depend what is inside the avi container?
[1:05] <plugwash> hamitron, it will but afaict it's pretty unusual for h.264 to be in an avi container
[1:05] <hamitron> ah, kk
[1:05] <plugwash> and h.264 is the only codec that can currently be gpu accelerated on the pi
[1:06] <hamitron> I guess with todays modern computers, it is not so bad converting everything
[1:06] * warddr (~warddr@Wikipedia/Warddr) Quit (Ping timeout: 265 seconds)
[1:06] <danfoshizzle> Yeah its not bother to me, but would be easier/quicker to just use avi
[1:07] <danfoshizzle> I know from the forum that mpeg-2 struggles
[1:07] <TopherBrink> well sd stuff is mostly perfect and what kind of hd stuff isnt in standard mp4/mkv h.264 now anyway
[1:08] <hamitron> if it is a problem, I'll buy your r-pi for ?10
[1:08] <hamitron> ;)
[1:08] <danfoshizzle> Lol no problem, :P
[1:09] <danfoshizzle> Was just trying to be lazy I suppose lol
[1:09] <hamitron> damn, I will get a good deal eventually ;)
[1:09] <danfoshizzle> Ebay deals o
[1:09] * IT_Sean (~IT_Sean@applefritter/IRCStaff/UltimateMacUser1) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:09] <danfoshizzle> Not to your suiting? lol
[1:09] <IT_Sean> /clearall
[1:09] <hamitron> not till the price is right
[1:10] <D34TH> i wonder how many people would pay full price for a used but guarrenteed rpi
[1:11] <hamitron> I bet a lot would pay more than full price, if they got it the week they order it
[1:11] <hamitron> :/
[1:11] * IT_Sean (~IT_Sean@applefritter/IRCStaff/UltimateMacUser1) Quit (Client Quit)
[1:12] <mkopack> I'd love to know when RS is going to ship mine out. I got the "Time to Order" email on Friday and did so, and I'm seeing UK folks getting their shipment notices, but so far no such notice for me, even though they've billed my CC
[1:13] <plugwash> D34TH, well given that new Pi's are still going on ebay for over double face value
[1:13] <plugwash> it wouldn't at all surprise me if even a used one sold for more than face value
[1:13] <hamitron> maybe even a broken one by
[1:13] <hamitron> may
[1:13] <hamitron> hehe
[1:14] <TopherBrink> the difference between a used pi and used dvd/cd/videogame/book is the same - pretty much nothing.

[1:15] <TopherBrink> no reason it wouldnt
[1:15] <mkopack> so long as it isn't fried or damaged in some significant way
[1:16] <hamitron> I guess an electronic device is harder to check it works fully
[1:16] <mkopack> I did read a report of somebody getting theirs from Farnell with a bad USB jack. there was a line/pin missing.
[1:16] <mkopack> so it's having to go back
[1:16] <mkopack> sounds like a case of a bad part
[1:16] <hamitron> :/
[1:16] * chandoo (~chandoo@ool-ad032250.dyn.optonline.net) Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[1:17] <TopherBrink> wouldnt be surprised, farnell seem to have put less care into the packing
[1:17] <TopherBrink> going on how mine arrived vs the RS one
[1:18] <plugwash> USB jacks are pretty enclosed, if a pin is missing i'd suspect a manufacturing defect not damage in transit
[1:18] * warddr (~warddr@Wikipedia/Warddr) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:21] <TopherBrink> true enough
[1:24] <plugwash> heck if a pin was completely missing (rather than just damaged) in practically any connector i'd think it was a manfacturing defect

[1:53] <SpeedEvil> Restful procrastination.
[1:53] <SpeedEvil> It's much easier to procrastinate about something when you don't have the hardware yet.
[1:54] <danfoshizzle> heh, general tinkering device for me, but I can see it being used for quite a few things once readily available, only have one at the moment lol

[2:48] <danfoshizzle> Do you think the cheap powered hubs from ebay will be ok for pi use? It can provide 500ma per port, so would not power the pi, but would power all the peripherals
[2:48] <IT_Sean> Any powered hub will be fine for peripherals.
[2:49] <danfoshizzle> Ok sweet, cheers
[2:49] <IT_Sean> But keep in mind that that, as you said, will not power a Model B. The Pi Model B requires 700ma

[9:44] <Gadgetoid> Yeah, I had it on 2GB and it blew through the remaining 500MB
[9:44] <gordonDrogon> and it's easy to expand the filesystem.
[9:45] <Gadgetoid> I'm going to guess I'll need to partition my own rather than DD the image straight onto it, but despite doing this for the Pandora I'm not that clued in
[9:46] <gordonDrogon> DD into the card and boot it on the Pi. then you can re-partition on the fly.

[9:46] <gordonDrogon> https://projects.drogon.net/raspberry-pi/initial-setup1/
[9:46] <gordonDrogon> I've put up the runes needed to expand it there.

[9:48] * Eigen (~Eigen@S0106b8c75dc9a198.vn.shawcable.net) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[9:48] <Gadgetoid> The partitioning layout is basically the same as on the Pandora??? FAT32 boot, swap and EXT* for root
[9:48] <Gadgetoid> I've half a mind to shove my Pandora SD in there and see what happens??? probably explosions
[9:49] <gordonDrogon> I don't know anything about the Pandora system - it's another ARM dev. board, I presume?
[9:50] <gordonDrogon> it's unlikely to boot though - the GPU needs to boot itself first then it loads the linux kernel for the ARM.
[9:50] * Veryevil (~Veryevil@ has joined #raspberrypi
[9:50] <gordonDrogon> so if you don't have the GPU boot code, then nothing is going to happen...
[9:50] <Gadgetoid> It's an ARM-based hand-held computer??? but yeah, it'll probably choke
[9:51] <gordonDrogon> ah, openpandora, etc. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pandora_%28console%29

[9:53] <Gadgetoid> Truth!
[9:53] <Gadgetoid> I'm nothing if not biased

[9:54] <gordonDrogon> how long is the current waiting list, I wonder...
[9:55] <gordonDrogon> wish I had the time for all this... )-:
[9:55] <Gadgetoid> I pre-ordered it forever ago??? waited over 2 years, no idea what the wait is like now
[9:56] <gordonDrogon> yea, took me long enough to get my Pi!

[9:58] <Gadgetoid> I was lucky, I registered my interest with RS, ordered on Friday, got it yesterday morning
[9:58] <gordonDrogon> I don't think the Pi has sensors.
[9:58] <gordonDrogon> I pad ?105 for mine, so over the odds, but not compltely silly money.
[9:59] <gordonDrogon> Linux sensors is a package called lm-sensors, but I've checked it on mine, and no sensors...

[9:59] <Gadgetoid> Pretty comparable to other dev boards, I almost caved and bought a Pandaboard
[9:59] <gordonDrogon> Is the CPU too hot to touch, or does it just feel hot?
[9:59] * KaiNeR (~KaiNeR@ has joined #raspberrypi
[9:59] <drazyl> can you cook an egg on it?
[9:59] <Gadgetoid> zag: Use a thermometer, it's not like the CPU is hard to get to!
[9:59] <gordonDrogon> if it's too hot to keep a finger on for more than a few seconds its typically > 45C.
[9:59] <pjm__> Gadgetoid hi, what time did u originally register interest on RS? I also got my board y/day having ordered it on friday too
[9:59] * prebz (~prebz@c83-248-137-170.bredband.comhem.se) has joined #raspberrypi
[9:59] <Gadgetoid> pjm__: I don't know, I did it twice??? once on launch day, and once the day after
[10:00] <pjm__> ahh ok i did mine at about 2 mins to 6am on 'launch' day
[10:00] <zag> also has anyone tried unraring things on the raspi? like a blueray release?
[10:00] <gordonDrogon> RS seem to have stopped sending me emails - but I didn't regsiter until 6pm on the 29th.
[10:00] <zag> I want to make it into a downloading server, but not sure its got the cpu to unrar quick enough
[10:00] <Gadgetoid> I'm pretty happy with their stupendously quick delivery, and ??30.87 all inclusive was a steal
[10:01] <pjm__> yes overall RS were not bad, its just a great shame the whole 'get to market' has been so slow!
[10:01] <gordonDrogon> I ordered with Farnell at the same time - they have given me a date of w/c the 21st of May, so...
[10:01] <Gadgetoid> gordonDrogon: No harm in having 2! the start of your very own beowulf cluster
[10:03] <gordonDrogon> heh
[10:03] <gordonDrogon> they seem to want to call it a "Bramble" cluster on the forums. Weird, but ...
[10:03] <gonzo-_> Hi. UART output on my R-Pi is partially garbled, like this: mmc0: SDHC{??.?..?...??|?K?u.using platform's DMA
[10:03] <Gadgetoid> Ha ha??? that's almost funny!
[10:03] * gonzo-_ is now known as gonzo-
[10:03] <gonzo-> What could be wrong with it?
[10:03] <xranby> drazyl: my raspberry pi cpu temperature is around 39*C
[10:03] <gordonDrogon> zag, I've been overclocking my Pi for some time now and it's not running too hot at all. Chip temp is 41C.
[10:04] <Gadgetoid> I'm itching to hook random shit up to the GPIO port and see what happens??? I'm treading new ground for myself, though, and wondering if I should jumper a megadrive controller to it
[10:04] <zag> thx gd, yeh I doubt its over 40C
[10:04] <gordonDrogon> I've been playing with the GPIO - just switched and LEDs for now, but going to order up some motors next week.
[10:05] <Gadgetoid> gordonDrogon: is an LED basically just a bridge from an output pin to GND?
[10:05] <gordonDrogon> 45C is about the cut-off temp. for most people to touch something for any length of time.
[10:05] <gordonDrogon> yes, via a current limiting resistor.
[10:06] <gordonDrogon> you can also connect it to +3.3V too, then the LED is on when the output is set low.
[10:06] <xranby> Gadgetoid: do keep in mind that the gpio pins are dirrectly wire to the cpu core
[10:06] <xranby> they are not designed to deliver a lot of current
[10:06] <xranby> to power a led
[10:06] <gordonDrogon> 16mA max.
[10:06] <gordonDrogon> http://unicorn.drogon.net/mess2.jpg
[10:07] <gordonDrogon> those LEDs have 330 ohm limiting resistors in series with them.
[10:07] <fALSO> hi
[10:07] <gordonDrogon> although according to the specs, it really ought to be 47 ohms...
[10:07] <gordonDrogon> I did run a couple with 47 ohm resistors just to check and they're a little bit brighter, but not worth it for the 4x current draw IMO.
[10:08] <xranby> gordonDrogon: looks nice
[10:08] <gordonDrogon> it's just a breadboard so I can quickly hookup stuff to experiment.
[10:08] <gordonDrogon> it's the one from skpang.

[10:13] <gordonDrogon> One thing I've just found which is annoying is that I can't plug in a composite video lead without taking it out of the housing )-:
[10:13] <ShiftPlusOne> looks great for students
[10:13] <gordonDrogon> I've got to demo it tomorow and the only monitor we have takes composite video in.
[10:13] <Gadgetoid> Yeah the composite video connector is a bit tight in there, you need an L-adaptor
[10:13] * gordonDrogon nods. don't have one..
[10:14] <gordonDrogon> not a big issue for me as I now have it connected to the DVI port on my PC monitor.
[10:14] <Gadgetoid> Might even have trouble getting an adaptor in there, though!

[10:24] <timmillwood> but on a raspi :s I'd be worried
[10:25] <gordonDrogon> I turned compositing off as it makes window drags a bit slow, but it wasn't unusable with it on, just a bit clunky.
[10:25] <xranby> gordonDrogon: how odd. my rasbian setup cant find the xfce4 dependencies after running a apt-get update
[10:26] <gordonDrogon> I've not tried any big apps yet though and I have my desktop configured as a basic window manager (ie. turned the desktop stuff off)

[11:09] <BenO> I guess sudo might come in handy when explaining things to new users - avoiding the topic of root user for a little while. And also, sometimes you just want a sandwich ;) http://xkcd.com/149/

[11:17] <SBeans> screen
[11:17] <SBeans> i've not use tmux
[11:18] <Skorpy> tmux is better
[11:18] <SBeans> whats the adv disadv between the two
[11:19] <SBeans> 10:16 < Skorpy> tmux is better < I highly doubt it's that clear cut
[11:19] <BenO> SBeans, IIRC tmux was better with dodgy connections

[11:21] <BenO> SBeans, But hey, I still use screen ;
[11:21] <BenO> ;)
[11:22] <Veryevil> I just started using Terminator for multiple terminal windows that nicely arrange themselves
[11:22] <SBeans> hmm]
[11:22] <BenO> Veryevil, I used that for a bit - quite nice. I'm using guake at the mo
[11:22] <SBeans> I can see the appeal
[11:23] <wjoe> they're very similar. tmux uses ctrl-b instead of ctrl-a (by default, can be changed), but the rest of the shortcuts are similar
[11:23] <fALSO> tmux4lyfe
[11:23] <fALSO> :-D
[11:23] <SBeans> I personally don't do much window-splitting, or resizing and probably wouldnt utalize the flexabilty of windows much, so I guess for me they'd be pretty even

[11:24] <SBeans> ok so Pi question: using arch Linux, never set up my own GUI before, alsways used ubuntu, or just CLI with gentoo...
[11:24] <SBeans> what should I use?
[11:25] <urs> Also, in order to switch to tmux, I'd have to *terminate* my screen session.
[11:25] <SBeans> hahhahah
[11:25] <urs> I don't do that more than once per year. Preferably less.
[11:25] <SBeans> agreed

[11:26] <SBeans> that will be niec
[11:27] <SBeans> probably crash it by then
[11:27] <urs> But it's a good thing the screen+irssi monoculture gets replaced by a screen/tmux+irssi/weechat mixture. Mixture is good.
[11:27] <Hourd> indeed
[11:27] <SBeans> agreed
[11:28] <SBeans> also weechat?

[11:36] <ngilles> gordonDrogon: that's the ultime method, but come on, we want to achieve practical time scales :D
[11:36] <gordonDrogon> ok, then use vim :)
[11:36] <Gwayne> :-)
[11:36] <ngilles> Gwayne: I'll argue against that for using vim instead
[11:36] <ngilles> its addistions are quite welcome :D

[11:39] <gordonDrogon> however, while it worked OK, other things were gathering pace - and we dumped it for sunos on the new (at the time) sparcstation.

[11:40] * _sundar_ (~sundar@ Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[11:40] <Gwayne> I wonder if the raspberry has the same computing power as those first sparcstations though
[11:40] <gordonDrogon> probably.
[11:41] <gordonDrogon> the early ones I used were about 33MHz or 66MHz IIRC.
[11:41] <gordonDrogon> they probably had a faster memory system.
[11:41] <ngilles> gordonDrogon: and no "turbo" button for the 66MHz ones like the for x86 machines ? :D
[11:41] <ngilles> I suppose there were less "cpu speed" sensitve games for sparcstations
[11:42] <gordonDrogon> I helped build a big cluster of them in the early 90's... We had 256 compute nodes of a twin sparc running at 77MHz with 128MB of RAM on each node.
[11:42] <gordonDrogon> in its day it was fantastic.
[11:42] <gordonDrogon> No1 in the world, etc.
[11:42] <gordonDrogon> but 20 years later a single PC is about as fast..
[11:43] <SBeans> The problem with using butterflys to code, is the there is no syntax highlighting

[11:47] * Axman6 (~Axman6@pdpc/supporter/student/Axman6) has joined #raspberrypi
[11:47] <Dagger2> zgreg: I asked on the forums a month or two ago and was brushed off
[11:48] <Dagger2> "The base Debian distro is just that, a base install to get the board going ??? no frills, bells or whistles."
[11:48] <zgreg> that's hardly a special feature
[11:49] <zgreg> the backwards attitude is exactly what is holding ipv6 back
[11:49] <zgreg> sigh
[11:50] <ngilles> zgreg: indeed, it's nice to see some distributions/OS are now looking at making ipv6 only kernels possible
[11:50] <Ben64> people for some reason don't want to give up ipv4
[11:50] <ngilles> at least it gives place to start to test that things will work
[11:50] <zgreg> ipv6 only? not going to happen anytime soon
[11:50] <zgreg> but we need dualstack
[11:51] <Ben64> ipv6 doesn't seem like its happening anytime soon either
[11:51] <Dagger2> NAT64 does actually go a long way. I have v6-only VPSs
[11:51] <Ben64> it'd solve so many problems
[11:51] <ngilles> zgreg: of course we will need dual stack for quite some time, but it's nice to see there is some progression to make ipv6 stand by itself
[11:51] <zgreg> it's happening right now here
[11:52] <Ben64> no more NAT, no more vhosts

[11:52] <Hourd> yeah =[ oh well
[11:52] <Dagger2> zgreg: oh hey, there was some small amount of activity on the forum thread -- http://tinyurl.com/6lrkuux
[11:52] <Hourd> also how will people remember ip addresses when its all ipv6? :O
[11:53] <ngilles> Ben64: and that won't happen until they are certain upgrading all their gear will be worth the money
[11:53] <Dagger2> might be worth emailing or adding your voice on the forums
[11:53] <zgreg> Dagger2: didn't try NAT64 yet, but I suppose it will be quite problematic for some applications?
[11:53] <Ben64> Hourd: same way as ipv4... domain names :D
[11:53] <Dagger2> Hourd: surely you've heard of this DNS thing. it's been around for 30 years or so now...
[11:53] <ngilles> Hourd: a lot of them are still full of 0s ;-)
[11:53] <zgreg> yes, they aren't that complicated with the shortened syntax
[11:54] <Ben64> or do DEAD:BEEF:BABE::FAB
[11:54] <zgreg> it's a bit more complicated than IPv4 to remember, but nowhere near 4x as hard
[11:54] <Dagger2> and, yeah, short addresses are fine... and since you're supposed to get a /48, your addresses can be short
[11:54] <Dagger2> in fact v4 requires you to remember two separate 32-bit addresses = 64 bits total, and you can make v6 addresses that are shorter than that
[11:54] <Ben64> requires?
[11:55] <zgreg> Dagger2: actually I think this extreme wasteful address allocation is a bad thing
[11:55] <Dagger2> so... I don't see how it'll be harder to remember the (shorter) v6 address
[11:55] * Gwayne (~Gwayne@opensuse/member/gwayne) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[11:55] <zgreg> and I think the interface identifier should be shorter, maybe 48 bits instead of 64
[11:55] <Dagger2> zgreg: we have 5000 /48s available per _person_ on the planet. do you really think that allocating a /48 for each network is going to be a problem?
[11:55] <Hourd> Ben64: lol i can remember most of the IPs for the machines at work...
[11:56] <Ben64>
[11:56] <Ben64> not hard
[11:56] <ngilles> Dagger2: when we move into space and finally create intergalactic networks, yes, it will be a problem! ;-)
[11:56] * _sundar_ (~sundar@ has joined #raspberrypi
[11:56] <zgreg> in theory the address space of IPv6 is HUGE, but if everyone gets a /48 no questions asked, it's only 2^16 more than the IPv4 space
[11:56] <Ben64> = harder
[11:57] <Dagger2> zgreg: that's not true... we're not giving /48s per computer, but /48s per network. you can stick effectively an infinite amount of computers in a /48

[11:57] * SocksG (~socksg@calculus.wolf.ox.ac.uk) has joined #raspberrypi
[11:57] <ngilles> Dagger2: so it really comes down ot the definition of "network"
[11:57] <Ben64> i think a lot of places do /48 per person
[11:58] <Dagger2> (and even if we do, that's just out of 2000::/3. we still have five more /3 blocks the same size)
[11:58] * Gwayne (~Gwayne@ has joined #raspberrypi
[11:58] * Gwayne (~Gwayne@ Quit (Changing host)
[11:58] * Gwayne (~Gwayne@opensuse/member/gwayne) has joined #raspberrypi
[11:58] <zgreg> Dagger2: well, some DSL providers are already giving out /48s quite happily... for probably a single computer
[11:58] <ngilles> is a person a network (thing PAN), or is it his house/family, what about his car ... etc
[11:58] <Dagger2> zgreg: how many people do you know with 5000 DSL connections? or even five, for that matter?
[11:59] <ngilles> zgreg: that's most likely a /48 per DSL endpoint/house
[11:59] <zgreg> Dagger2: these calculations don't measure up
[11:59] <zgreg> you don't know how the address space will be used in the future, so the allocation should be somewhat conservative
[11:59] <zgreg> and a /48 for a single household and possible only a single machine is definitely complete waste
[11:59] <zgreg> a /64 woul easily do
[12:00] <Dagger2> ngilles: on A&A it's a /48 per customer. if they have multiple lines, tunnels etc each line gets a different /64 or /60 from the /48. which seems like a reasonable way to do it
[12:00] <Ben64> by my count, there are 281,474,976,579,584 /48s total
[12:00] * gallais_ is now known as gallais
[12:00] * Davespice_ is now known as Davespice
[12:00] <Dagger2> zgreg: how do they not add up? 2^45/7 billion = 5026
[12:00] <zgreg> Ben64: remember there are some reserved ranges for special uses already
[12:00] * Gwayne (~Gwayne@opensuse/member/gwayne) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[12:01] <ngilles> Dagger2: ah, ok, yeah, still reasonable, somehow, but I would for example expect different customer classes to get different sized networks, just like it was with v4
[12:01] <ngilles> i.e. your typical household with DSL most likely doesn't need /48, or even /64
[12:01] * Tachyon (~tachyon@cpc1-york2-0-0-cust905.7-1.cable.virginmedia.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[12:01] <zgreg> additionally, IIRC registrars easily can get a /32, and sometimes even a /29
[12:02] <Dagger2> ngilles: why bother though? there's enough space to just give everyone a /48, so why bother with the pain of dealing with different size allocations?
[12:03] <zgreg> readily giving out these huge ranges is a big waste as well, and I can already see us in the same situation as now with a few early adaptors sitting on big IPv4 /8 networks
[12:03] <Dagger2> zgreg: the registrars get /12 blocks. /32 is the standard size for ISPs (but each /32 has seven unassigned /32s after it, to allow ISPs to grow to /29 without fragmenting their space)
[12:04] <ngilles> zgreg: I don't think we will hit that problem "soon" though, considering the huge number involved
[12:04] <ngilles> Dagger2: I don't know, I think it's the "principle" that bothers me
[12:04] <Dagger2> and giving a single /64 to a DSL customer is a bad idea. the rule is a single /64 if you _know_ the end-user will only use one /64. if there's a chance they might use more, give them more
[12:04] <Dagger2> e.g. I use two subnets at home right now. I need more than /64.
[12:04] <zgreg> Dagger2: well, they can ask for it
[12:04] <Ben64> no you don't
[12:05] <Ben64> a /64 is more addresses than you will ever use
[12:05] * Holden (~holden@unaffiliated/holdenc) has joined #raspberrypi
[12:05] <Dagger2> it's only a single subnet though, and I'm using two subnets
[12:06] <Dagger2> it's IPv6. it's too big to be counting individual IPs anymore
[12:06] <Ben64> why would you need more than one subnet
[12:06] <zgreg> give DSL customers a single /64, and if they need more they get another one, or a /56
[12:07] <Dagger2> Ben64: split wireless or v6-only VLAN will do that
[12:07] <Dagger2> Ben64: or a VPN
[12:07] * rax0 (~nx@b0tnet.me) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[12:07] <zgreg> Dagger2: well the problem with that is how the address space is divided
[12:08] <Dagger2> or how about plugging a router in behind your own router? in v4-land that would be double-NAT. in v6-land you can use DHCPv6-PD to automatically route a /64 (or better, /60 or /56) to the client router
[12:08] * rax0 (~nx@b0tnet.me) has joined #raspberrypi
[12:08] <zgreg> but what's the rationale for using 64 bits for the interface identifier, anyway?
[12:09] <zgreg> 48 or even 32 bits would have sufficed
[12:09] <Dagger2> zgreg: I don't see it as a problem though. I don't see how we're going to get to the point where each person has 5000 /48s allocated to them
[12:09] <zgreg> you're seeing it from the wrong perspective
[12:09] <zgreg> the address space is huge, no doubt
[12:09] <Dagger2> we don't even use that many _single IPs_ in v4, and each of those /48s takes a whole sprawling network
[12:10] <zgreg> but the way it's divided is very wasteful
[12:10] <Hourd> Ben64: yeah the work IPs are not 192.168.1.*
[12:11] <Dagger2> well, I do agree 2^64 computers is... more than you can put on a single L2 broadcast domain
[12:11] <zgreg> and "because we can" is not a good justification for wasting space. you never know the future. :)
[12:11] <Dagger2> 32 bits might have been pushing it a bit... a very large network with privacy addresses enabled would experience quite a few address collisions
[12:12] <zgreg> I'm sure people will invent creative applications that waste tremendois amounts of address space. you know, because they can
[12:12] <Dagger2> but I just don't see it as a problem, since... 5000 /48s per person
[12:12] <zgreg> there already are some of these applications
[12:12] <Dagger2> obviously if you start giving /48s to every single individual machine out there, that would be bad
[12:13] <Dagger2> but I'm not suggesting that, I'm suggesting one /48 per network ("network" here being roughly either one ISP customer or one company)
[12:13] * Xark_ (~chatzilla@cpe-50-113-123-229.san.res.rr.com) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[12:14] <Dagger2> and if there really is a magic use invented, it can have space allocated out of the other five /3s that I'm ignoring at the moment
[12:14] <zgreg> well, for DSL end-users it makes more sense to allocate a smaller /56 at least
[12:14] <zgreg> that's still much more than they'll ever need
[12:15] * xranby (~xranby@labb.zafena.se) has left #raspberrypi
[12:15] <Dagger2> zgreg: yeah, ok, I find it hard to argue with /56 (although I would prefer /48 myself because it gives shorter/neater addresses... even if I do use DNS everywhere)
[12:15] <Dagger2> but definitely more than /64, please
[12:16] <Dagger2> there's 1.3 million /56s per person on the planet, so there's really no justification for trying to conserve more space on top of that

[13:50] <Hexxeh> the idea is that you have a kexec-based bootloader on the SD card with no rootFS, just an initramfs with kexec/kexecboot and supporting libraries

[13:51] <Hexxeh> which are arguably more abundant
[13:52] <tzarc> I'm assuming you want to boot stuff other than linux, because a simple initramfs built into a kernel on the SD will suffice for booting off other methods

[13:52] <Hexxeh> the initramfs is there to provide a menu and detection of the root device

[16:09] <cougarten> do we have any chance for another codec one day?
[16:09] <cougarten> for some things i don't like h264
[16:09] <ShiftPlusOne> there's always a chance, but there are no plans
[16:10] <fALSO> the h264 is decoded by the GPU
[16:10] <fALSO> not via software
[16:10] <fALSO> so no, no other codecs
[16:10] <cougarten> i know
[16:10] <cougarten> ... ok. i will have to see if it's good enough
[16:10] <ShiftPlusOne> the way it could happen is if the foundation makes a Model C with extra codecs or if someone hacks the binary blobs to enable extra codecs.
[16:10] <fALSO> has anyone tried to play normal xvid/divx videos on the pi ?
[16:12] <ShiftPlusOne> I'll install mplayer and give it a go

[16:30] <shirro> ShiftPlusOne: I mounted some media with sshfs and ran omxplayer on a mix of mostly SD and 720p stuff, xvid and x264 and omxplayer on the Pi had no problems. I haven't tried full hd but from the specs it should work fine

[16:53] <cougarten> gordonDrogon, right. but in the linked forum discussion there is a deb package

[17:52] <gordonDrogon> hi sorry - been on the phone.
[17:52] <gordonDrogon> I've not looked at the uart stuff in detail.
[17:53] <gordonDrogon> but Linux (well debian at least) uses it by default for the console output.
[17:53] <kallisti5> gordonDrogon: no worries at all... you have helped me a *ton* thus far :)
[17:53] <gordonDrogon> so there ought to be a driver for it in the Linux kernel sources, somewhere!
[17:53] <kallisti5> gordonDrogon: yeah.. the wierd thing is the initial pi commit is all over the place
[17:54] <kallisti5> it adds three different uarts.. uart0, uart1, and pl011 from what I hear

[19:17] <mkopack> It would seem to me there needs to be 2 layers to the GPIO drivers:
[19:17] <mkopack> 1 to config the Pins for the things you need it to perform
[19:18] <mkopack> and then individual ones for the various protocols once you've configged the pins as needed to support that protocol
[19:18] <gordonDrogon> yes, that does make sense.
[19:18] <mkopack> Like: gpio config and then 1 for I2C, 1 for SPI, etc.
[19:18] <gordonDrogon> yup.
[19:18] <mkopack> and that way they can build on each other

[20:14] <gordonDrogon> mount is horribly unformatted though.
[20:14] <Hexxeh> if you're comfortable with a little OCing, you can pop arm_freq=800 in there too
[20:14] <gordonDrogon> 900 here :)
[20:15] <Hexxeh> i've been running my Pi at 800mhz without any issues
[20:15] <Hexxeh> gordonDrogon: didn't want to push it :)
[20:15] <Hexxeh> the arch linux image ships at 800mhz by default

[20:16] <Hexxeh> i think it was gert who said that?
[20:16] <gordonDrogon> overvoltage is the killer, so I read in a post from Dom.

[21:07] <chancellorsmith> hi all - going to try arch tonight - dd'ing
[21:07] <Gadgetoid> Dun dun dun!
[21:07] <DaQatz> Accessing memory wrong somewhere
[21:07] <chancellorsmith> anyone know if it has ssh enabled - am headless
[21:07] <Gadgetoid> Node still compiling, chug chug chug
[21:07] <DaQatz> Valgrind it
[21:07] <gordonDrogon> I think the framebuffer driver is simply broken.
[21:07] <gordonDrogon> it valgrinds OK. this works on my laptops
[21:08] <gordonDrogon> and it works - sometimes on the Pi, but with different framebuffer resolutions.
[21:09] <Hexxeh> chancellorsmith: afaik it does
[21:09] <gordonDrogon> what annoys me is that the X server works, but it must be noodling something else.
[21:10] <gordonDrogon> and I can run my app under X in full-screen mode too.

[21:16] <nemo> So, by my calculations, taking a computer built the year I was born, and trying to match the performance of the raspberry pi...
[21:16] <nemo> Would consume 112,500 watts
[21:16] <IT_Sean> O_O
[21:16] <nemo> about 40,000 times the power of the Pi
[21:17] <IT_Sean> But not 1.21 jiggawatts?
[21:17] <nemo> amazing how much things have changed
[21:17] <gamegeek> thats crazy
[21:17] <Iota> My Raspberry Pi has an uptime of 17 days. :o
[21:17] <gordonDrogon> valves got hot ...
[21:17] <nemo> gordonDrogon: I'm not that old :-p
[21:17] <IT_Sean> hahah
[21:17] <gordonDrogon> nemo, ;-)
[21:17] <gamegeek> btw u guys as hobiest what do u do on the pi?
[21:17] <IT_Sean> calculate it for 1985
[21:17] <gordonDrogon> The oldest computer I programmed as a job was an Ellion 903 - c1966.
[21:17] <gordonDrogon> Er, Elliot 903.

[21:22] <IT_Sean> The button on the side... .... ... is it glowing?
[21:22] <gordonDrogon> jm|laptop, got your screen sorted yet?
[21:22] <nemo> Say, does anyone happen to know what the minimum feature size is for the ARM1176JZF-S that the Pi uses?
[21:22] <gamegeek> is it fluxing?
[21:22] <jm|laptop> gordonDrogon: in the sense that it fits, yes
[21:22] <nemo> in the spirit of efficiency, I was curious how the Pi compares to the latest Arm processors
[21:22] <jm|laptop> gordonDrogon: strange resolution though
[21:23] <gordonDrogon> jm|laptop, you reckon it's really 1280x768?
[21:24] <chancellorsmith> on arch how do i know if i need to reclaim more free space for the root partition
[21:24] * sekanS (~Mojak@ has joined #raspberrypi
[21:24] <chancellorsmith> i followed gordonDrogon's guide yesterday and it worked well - i have a fresh arch card in it now

[21:25] <Gadgetoid> That looks like you haven't reclaimed unformatted space
[21:25] <gordonDrogon> jm|laptop, if the real screen is 1280x768, then comment everything out of config.txt and put this in: framebuffer_width=1344 and framebuffer_height=832
[21:25] <Gadgetoid> Or *unpartioned* space even
[21:25] <Gadgetoid> I just used gparted and did it all GUI-style, lazy but effective

[21:27] <chancellorsmith> just gives me the hep screen
[21:28] <nemo> wow. that's pretty big
[21:28] <gamegeek> little of topic is dualboot ubuntu/windows any good for the linux, can it run on full speed?
[21:28] <Gadgetoid> chancellorsmith: have you got another linux system you can use to tweak the partitions?
[21:28] <xlq> gamegeek: Dual booting has no effect on speed .
[21:28] <chancellorsmith> not handy???can do it later i guess

[21:29] <gordonDrogon> drop the -uc
[21:29] <xlq> gamegeek: But since this is in #raspberrypi... Windows won't run on a Raspberry Pi.
[21:29] <chancellorsmith> yesterday i did it following this https://projects.drogon.net/raspberry-pi/initial-setup1/ that was on debian
[21:29] <chancellorsmith> gordonDrogon: ok
[21:29] <gordonDrogon> Some newer version of fdisk don't need -uc
[21:29] <chancellorsmith> aha
[21:29] <gamegeek> yes but i curently dont have anoter machine to run linux on
[21:29] <gamegeek> and i need windows for school
[21:29] <chancellorsmith> i'm in, ta
[21:29] <nemo> 32nm is available now, 20nm probably by the end of the year. If the Pi was using one of those, it would take more like 225,000 watts for a computer from start of my life to match
[21:29] <chancellorsmith> no swap by the looks
[21:30] <chancellorsmith> just 2 partitions
[21:30] <nemo> given 1000 watts can power a modern home...
[21:30] <dmsuse> gamegeek: i guess you have never heard of vmware
[21:30] <chancellorsmith> i wil use my initiative and your guide ! haha, what could possibly go wrong :-)
[21:30] <xlq> VMWare? At least suggest some free software.
[21:30] <gordonDrogon> well - the worst is that you have to start again :)
[21:30] <nemo> gamegeek: I run windows in VirtualBox personally
[21:30] <xlq> VirtualBox, Xen, KVM, ...
[21:30] <nemo> those few times I need it

[21:39] <gordonDrogon> Gadgetoid, no - screen. I dropped it.

[21:39] <Gadgetoid> gordonDrogon: Ahh??? yeah??? gravity, that'll hose a phone for sure, although mine survived a drop
[21:40] <hamitron> is the n900 worth getting still?
[21:40] <gamegeek> its for the c compiler
[21:40] <gordonDrogon> it survived the first one - the 2nd just made it worse... I think it's the flexy cable from the display to the base though - it did sometimes flicker on when I shook it...
[21:40] <DaQatz> C compilers are easy to install.
[21:40] <Gadgetoid> hamitron: look at the OpenPandora instead :D

[21:41] <hamitron> Gadgetoid, looks and nice, but not for me.... need a phone that is also good as a toy ;)
[21:41] <gamegeek> whats a program extension on linux (win=exe/mac=app) can they run on other distobuters
[21:42] <DaQatz> There is no extension
[21:42] <Gadgetoid> hamitron: I never really found the N900 good as a phone, but I'm fussy and half deaf
[21:42] <gamegeek> there is always an extension

[21:52] <amelia_> IT_Sean: well, this is just my RS one - still waiting on my Farnell preorder :P
[21:53] <carldani> so there are many people willing to test hardware drivers I wrote?

[21:55] <gordonDrogon> they're not selling *that* quickly ...
[21:55] <rich_> they are impressive, i wouldn't pay like ??150 when they first appeared on ebay!
[21:55] <chancellorsmith> well they're not having mine!
[21:55] <amelia_> Well, I could be amenable to getting rid of my second one if it turns up and you're still pi-less, IT_Sean
[21:56] <amelia_> What's your QTH?
[21:56] <carldani> the big question is whether the new batches have the GPIO pins soldered in as well...

[21:56] <gordonDrogon> carldani, what drivers have you written?

[21:57] * gamegeek (gamegeek@ Quit ()
[21:57] <carldani> I wanted to test it on real hardware before I make a Linux kernel driver out of it.
[21:57] <gordonDrogon> don't have any spi hardware to hand, sadly...
[21:57] <carldani> gordonDrogon: you do, you just don't know
[21:57] <gordonDrogon> go on then... tell me where :)
[21:57] <IT_Sean> amelia_: i call first dibs on a buying oppurtunity
[21:58] <IT_Sean> seriousily... if you want to sell it when it arrives, let me know, amelia_
[21:58] <amelia_> IT_Sean: I'll hold you to it :) now, any recommendations on what I should do when i get chance to open it?
[21:59] <carldani> gordonDrogon: one SPI flash chip on any recent (>2005) graphics card, one SPI flash chip on any gigabit Intel network card, one SPI flash chip on most recent (>2008) mainboards, one SPI flash chip on most recent (>2007) DVD drives, ...
[21:59] <amelia_> Not managed to keep up on OS images much as I'd like ... specifically I'd like to get some sort of GUI with video and audio through HDMI..
[21:59] <IT_Sean> get it up and running, then post from it
[21:59] <IT_Sean> :p
[21:59] <IT_Sean> just ot gloat
[21:59] <gordonDrogon> right - and you want me to unsolder them....
[21:59] <gordonDrogon> I really mean accessible :)
[22:00] <carldani> gordonDrogon: on some mainboards, the chip is not soldered, but in a socket
[22:00] <carldani> gordonDrogon: that said, SPI flash chips only have 8 pins... it is manageable with a soldering iron.

[22:09] <chancellorsmith> doing this on my fresh arch ??? pacman --sync --refresh --sysupgrade ??? lots of stuff going on!
[22:09] <matthiasb> Hi, quick help needed: I am trying to pressed my d-i. Using USB image, have to crate preseed.cfg. Done that. Missing part is linking that file as a menu entry or default entry at boot time.
[22:10] <chancellorsmith> and hexxah - yes ssh runs by default on arch image - which is useful
[22:10] <matthiasb> How do i do that? Doc mentions modifying syslinux.cfg, but not HOW.
[22:10] <matthiasb> More precicely i am following that guide in the d-i documentation; http://wiki.debian.org/DebianInstaller/NetworkConsole
[22:11] <tpresence> what usb wireless adapters have people successfully used with their pi?
[22:11] <Holden> tpresence, I think there's a page about that on the wiki

[22:43] <Davespice> I know... I really want - right click, go to definition :)
[22:43] <mkopack> Davespice: Khronos is the group/alliance that makes the Open_xxxx specs so if you're looking for info, probably your best starting point
[22:43] <Davespice> and intellisense on object properties... I think Microsft has spoilt me
[22:44] <mkopack> That and being able to see all the files that make up the project and being able to easily double click to launch it in a tab

[22:57] <Revo> aaah ok, brilliant - thank you
[22:58] <Davespice> yeah I am an old DOS person, so I kind of like the Linux command prompt, feel at home using it

[23:17] <Davespice> guys, stupid Linux n00b question
[23:18] <zleap> just ask
[23:18] <Davespice> when I allocate a swap partition, is it enough that the partition just exists on the SD card, or do I need to do something else to tell it where the first block of the partition is so that it can use to to allocate Virtual Memory?
[23:18] * Milos|Netbook (~Milos@pdpc/supporter/student/milos) has joined #raspberrypi
[23:18] <freddysdad> Davespice, man swapon
[23:19] <Davespice> ar
[23:19] <Matt> you need to run mkswap on the partition
[23:19] <mjr> mkswap /dev/partition
[23:19] <Matt> but swap on sd is a really bad idea :)
[23:19] <mjr> and it needs to be in /etc/fstab for it to be automatically enabled at boot

[23:21] <Davespice> yeah it does
[23:21] <gordonDrogon> delete the swap partition...
[23:21] <gordonDrogon> :)
[23:21] <Davespice> not sure if it is enabled...
[23:22] <gordonDrogon> it's not by default if this is the debian image...
[23:22] <Davespice> only thing is I might have a use for it when compiling stuff
[23:22] <gordonDrogon> if so, your compiles will go really really slow.
[23:22] <gordonDrogon> not that they're fast in the first place on the Pi...
[23:22] <Davespice> a GD, yes I am trying to enable it
[23:22] <gordonDrogon> I have a project that takes 5 seconds to compile on my workstation ... 85 on the Pi.
[23:22] <gordonDrogon> and that's without swapping.
[23:22] <Davespice> yeah I know, but one thing I have is time and patience :)
[23:23] <Davespice> I've got a couple of projects that I've been trying to sort out which fail to compile on the Pi due to running out of memory
[23:23] <gordonDrogon> if you want memory for compiling, use the 224MB image and don't run X.
[23:23] <Davespice> so I only want it to get it past that stage
[23:24] <gordonDrogon> well - you can temporarily do this:
[23:24] <gordonDrogon> as root, cd /var ; dd if=/dev/zero of=swapfile bs=1M count=128
[23:24] <gordonDrogon> mkswap swapfile
[23:24] <gordonDrogon> swapon swapfile
[23:24] <gordonDrogon> that'll temporarily give you a 128MB swapfile.

[23:25] <plugwash> mmm, compiling/linking in swap is not good for performance but sometimes the only choice is that or cross compiling and cross compiling has downsides of it's own
[23:26] <plugwash> if there was a reasonally priced arm board with 2 gigabytes of ram i'd buy one but there isn't
[23:26] <Davespice> so if my swap partition is /dev/mmcblk0p3 - what do I enter?
[23:26] <Davespice> mkswap /dev/mmcblk0p3 ?
[23:26] <gordonDrogon> mkswap /dev/mmcblk0p3
[23:26] <gordonDrogon> then swapon /dev/mmcblk0p3

[23:26] <Davespice> okay cool, right
[23:27] <gordonDrogon> however I'd suggest not doing it and extending the root partition and using a swapfile.
[23:27] <Revo> What file system does the root partition on debian use? ext3?
[23:27] <gordonDrogon> ext4
[23:27] <Revo> Hmm thanks, trying to mount it on osx but no luck
[23:27] <Revo> should work..
[23:28] <Davespice> gordonDrogon: okay I've done that it seems happy
[23:28] <gordonDrogon> I've no idea... don't use osx...
[23:28] <gordonDrogon> Davespice, run the 'top' command to check.
[23:29] <Davespice> yes, at the top it says swap: 261628k total
[23:29] <gordonDrogon> 256MB swap. huge. more than enough.
[23:29] <Davespice> cool okay
[23:29] <gordonDrogon> it's going to go really really really slow if it ever starts to use it.
[23:30] <Davespice> that is okay, I appreciate that - all I want to do is shove it through the last linking stage of a compile
[23:30] <Davespice> as in the *get in there* <boot on head>
[23:30] <Davespice> so I would need to run those commands every time I reboot too?
[23:31] <gordonDrogon> just the swapon command.
[23:31] <gordonDrogon> however if you edit it into /etc/fstab it'll be fine.

[23:31] <Davespice> oh okay, so the mkswap command just prepars the data on the partition
[23:31] <gordonDrogon> that's for my swapfile, you substitude the /dev/mm.... for /var/swapfile
[23:31] <DaQatz> Swapping on an SD card...
[23:31] <gordonDrogon> yes, it's a sort of format for swapfiles.
[23:32] <Davespice> okay cool, thank you, I don't always want to use swap - just for certain situations
[23:32] <gordonDrogon> do reboot with the 224MB kernel though.
[23:33] <gordonDrogon> every little bit more RAM will help.
[23:33] <Davespice> to do that do I just rename something and then sudo reboot?
[23:34] <gordonDrogon> copy /boot/arm224_start.elf to /boot/start.elf
[23:34] <gordonDrogon> then reboot.
[23:34] <gordonDrogon> don't rename, copy.

[23:34] <Davespice> I usually do an mv

[23:34] <plugwash> and obliterating whatever was there before
[23:34] <Davespice> ah right, cheers plugwash
