[0:00] * fabrice1 (~fabrice@nat/mozilla/x-bevvfoqoofiikcpt) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:00] <ReggieUK> dmsuse, gpio are gpio, do with them what you will :D
[0:00] <ReggieUK> http://docs.blackfin.uclinux.org/doku.php?id=linux-kernel:drivers:gpio-keys
[0:00] <Mr_Rpi> example h-bridges clocks sensors
[0:00] <Mr_Rpi> temperature, windspeed logging
[0:00] <ReggieUK> thats a way to turn gpio pins into an interrupt driven keyboard (if you had enough gpio)
[0:00] * s[x] (~sx]@eth589.qld.adsl.internode.on.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:01] * Tachyon` (hideki@cpc1-york2-0-0-cust905.7-1.cable.virginmedia.com) Quit (Ping timeout: 245 seconds)
[0:01] <gordonDrogon> I do lots of stuff on Arduinos (and some PICs) and mostly just wanted to do it the way I'd program them.
[0:02] <gordonDrogon> I also wanted something to interface to my BASIC - it can talk to arudinos with a little thing I wrote to extend wiring back to a Linux host.
[0:02] <ReggieUK> oh sure, don't get me wrong, I'm not knocking what you've done
[0:02] * Hopsy|2 (~Hopsy@ Quit (Ping timeout: 260 seconds)
[0:02] <gordonDrogon> So in BASIC, I can open a remote arduino or the local GPOI and use the same commands on either.
[0:03] <dmsuse> gordonDrogon: cool
[0:03] * Syliss (~Syliss@adsl-108-82-201-7.dsl.chi2ca.sbcglobal.net) Quit (Quit: Syliss)
[0:03] * gurgalof (~gurgalof@dhcp-204-82.nomad.chalmers.se) Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[0:04] <gordonDrogon> and I like that the adruino hides the underlying hardware from you and just provides "pins"... So you have pins 0 through 13 on a standard Arduino.
[0:04] <gordonDrogon> I extended this to my thing, so I have pins 0 through 16 on the Pi.
[0:04] <gordonDrogon> 0-7 are GPIO 0 through 7 on the edge connector
[0:05] <gordonDrogon> easier than remembering BCM_GPIO_18, etc.
[0:05] * wry (~wry@c-71-205-142-149.hsd1.mi.comcast.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:05] <gordonDrogon> GPIO_18 is pin 1 is the PWM pin...
[0:06] * DDave (~DDave@unaffiliated/ddave) Quit (Ping timeout: 272 seconds)
[0:06] <ReggieUK> I would probably have been happy referring to it as bcm_gpio_18 :D

[0:06] <mkopack> Oh fun??? JP Morgan is calling an unexpected Conference call to announce that they lost nearly $1B in Q2??? welcome to double dip recession folks
[0:07] <dmsuse> 1b isnt alot
[0:07] <IT_Sean> It's not a little!
[0:08] <Mr_Rpi> I'll make good use of your wiringPi... might try connect a real-time clock to the Pi
[0:08] * khildin (~khildin@ip-83-134-213-226.dsl.scarlet.be) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:08] * khildin (~khildin@ip-83-134-213-226.dsl.scarlet.be) Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[0:08] <gordonDrogon> theres a few clock projects mentioned in the forums..
[0:08] <dmsuse> to a bank, its nothing :P
[0:09] <gordonDrogon> I was initially skeptical of the needs for a clock, but it seems that many people plan to use them standalone for data acquisition, or simple control stuff.
[0:09] <Mr_Rpi> sure... but i have c code and layout for a working ds1307 I might be able to use
[0:09] * Revo (~Rich@host86-137-76-143.range86-137.btcentralplus.com) Quit (Quit: Textual IRC Client: http://www.textualapp.com/)
[0:09] <Mr_Rpi> it also have a battery backup... or a super cap
[0:10] <Mr_Rpi> yes... continus logging data could be a possible area as well

[0:10] <gordonDrogon> there's a sort of hackspace near me in a couple of weeks time, but they're looking at using mobile phone app.s for some geology field logging
[0:11] <mkopack> well, guess I'll head home and try to enjoy the season finale of Big Bang Theory before the economy collapses again...
[0:11] <gordonDrogon> I might go along with the Pi and see what they're up to.
[0:11] <mkopack> later gang

[0:11] <Mr_Rpi> cool idea... out of my league ;)
[0:12] <gordonDrogon> I've never done a phone/pad/pod type app before, so I think I'll just put my programmers hat on and give them the benefit of my many years experiece :)

[0:19] <gerrynjr> any way to grow the / partition?
[0:20] <gordonDrogon> sure.
[0:20] <gordonDrogon> https://projects.drogon.net/raspberry-pi/initial-setup1/
[0:20] <gordonDrogon> have a read through that.
[0:21] * iccanobif (iccanobif@host109-121-dynamic.0-79-r.retail.telecomitalia.it) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:21] <gerrynjr> looks helpful, thanks
[0:22] <gordonDrogon> it seems to work :)
[0:22] * iccanobif (iccanobif@host109-121-dynamic.0-79-r.retail.telecomitalia.it) Quit (Client Quit)
[0:25] <gerrynjr> ROFL... KP on reboot
[0:25] <gordonDrogon> KP?
[0:26] <gerrynjr> kernel panic, cant mount root
[0:26] <gerrynjr> good thing I can try this multiple times 8-)
[0:26] <gordonDrogon> that's not good...
[0:26] <gerrynjr> I probably messed up
[0:26] <gordonDrogon> what had you done immediatly before?
[0:26] <gerrynjr> created the new partition
[0:27] <gordonDrogon> Hm.
[0:27] <gerrynjr> but I was "smart" and used cfdisk instead
[0:27] <gordonDrogon> ok... :)
[0:28] <gordonDrogon> I wonder if it moved the first block. fdisk seems to pick the wrong block

[0:28] * jmontleo (~jmontleo@pool-98-118-83-7.bstnma.fios.verizon.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:28] <gordonDrogon> I think it tried to be 'smart' about the alignment or something..
[0:28] <chris_99> hi, has anyone else experienced kernel oops
[0:28] <gerrynjr> gordonDrogon: Linux user for close to 14 years now, you build up bad habits
[0:29] <gordonDrogon> that's ok - I bear you by 4 years and I like using cfdisk too!
[0:29] <gordonDrogon> chris_99, not seen an oops myself on the pi yet - managed to crash it requiring a power cycle though..
[0:30] <gordonDrogon> back in 5 minutes..
[0:30] <Thorn__> Why is it old people always use being old as an excuse for everything? I'm 12 and also use cfdisk, *g*
[0:30] <gerrynjr> Im not old... I'm 26
[0:30] <gerrynjr> I started using linux at your age 8-)
[0:30] <chris_99> hmm, i get consistent oops's
[0:30] <chris_99> by just leaving it alone
[0:30] <Thorn__> 26, 62, don't give me your numbers.
[0:31] <gerrynjr> gordonDrogon: it does run a bit warm
[0:31] <gerrynjr> meant to send that to chris_99
[0:31] <chris_99> i think the problem is something to do with X
[0:31] <gerrynjr> I havnt used X yet
[0:31] <chris_99> i'll paste a backtrace in a sec
[0:32] <gerrynjr> and dont really plan in doing so
[0:32] <chris_99> i intend to play videos with it
[0:32] <dmsuse> there aint anything you can do in X you can't do in terminal :P
[0:32] <chris_99> er play videos for one :P
[0:32] <dmsuse> lol
[0:32] <gerrynjr> chris_99: you can play videos on the terminal 8-0
[0:32] <dmsuse> yes you can actually
[0:32] <chris_99> in ascii
[0:32] <dmsuse> no
[0:32] <gerrynjr> use the framebuffer device
[0:32] <chris_99> it's not the same
[0:33] <gerrynjr> it will play vide
[0:33] <gerrynjr> just not hardware acceslerated yet

[0:36] * gordonDrogon is back.
[0:37] <gordonDrogon> Thorn__, well done :)
[0:37] <gordonDrogon> gerrynjr, if you can keep a finger on the cpu then it's not too hot...
[0:37] * JonSeals (~Jon@99-158-225-217.lightspeed.livnmi.sbcglobal.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:38] <gerrynjr> I said it was warm 8-)
[0:38] <gordonDrogon> chris_99, check your PSU - I've heard others have similar issues with Ethernet that I think have been caused by the PSU.
[0:39] <chris_99> hmm, i'm not sure how that'd cause it. It's just the PSU i got from RS.
[0:39] <gordonDrogon> I've actually been overlocking mine for a week or so now.. it peaks at 41C which is OK.
[0:40] <gordonDrogon> I think some bits are more sensitive to PSU voltage than others...

[0:41] * chnops (~chnops@2001:980:34c7:0:1e6f:65ff:fe86:1e03) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:41] <chnops> hey everyone
[0:41] <Thorn__> longest quit message of the year award
[0:41] <chnops> my rpi arrived yesterday :D
[0:41] <Thorn__> are you here to rub it in?
[0:41] <plugwash> gordonDrogon, on the Pi itself I'd think the first thing that will happen on low PSU voltage is that the 3.3V reg will enter dropout
[0:41] <chnops> yes
[0:41] <Thorn__> :P
[0:41] <plugwash> leading to a low and unstable 3.3V supply which seems to bother the ethernet chip
[0:42] <chnops> i'm just excited, I wasn't expecting it for another couple of weeks
[0:42] <plugwash> outside of the Pi itself a low 5V line is also likely to bother USB perhipherals
[0:43] <gordonDrogon> just did a google - there was someone here the other day with the same issue - they didn't see it with keyboard & mouse unplugged though.
[0:43] <chnops> is it possible to power the rpi using a PC's USB port, or should I really plug it into my phone's USB charger?
[0:43] <gordonDrogon> try the phones charger first.
[0:43] <gordonDrogon> most PCs will only supply 500mA
[0:43] * phantoxeD (~destroy@a95-92-89-24.cpe.netcabo.pt) Quit (Ping timeout: 250 seconds)
[0:43] <chnops> ah, yeah the phone charger does work
[0:43] <gordonDrogon> and it needs a bit more than that when booting (or so it seems)
[0:44] * shirro (~shirro@pdpc/supporter/active/shirro) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:44] <chnops> i'm just too lazy to crawl under my desk everytime to plug in the charger :)
[0:44] * hungryhorace (~hungryhor@ Quit (Quit: hungryhorace)
[0:44] <gordonDrogon> I'd suggest not using the cheapest possible charger, if possible...
[0:45] <plugwash> the core should be good down to pretty low voltages as the regulator supplying it (internal to the SOC) appears to be designed to run off a battery supply (probablly a cellphone style single cell liion or lipo)
[0:45] <gordonDrogon> although saying that, I'm using a cheapish powered hub to power it - it has a 2A charger though.
[0:45] <gordonDrogon> isn't the USB which includes the Ethernet chip all powered off the 5V supply though?
[0:46] <plugwash> The USB to ethernet chip is supplied from the 3.3V rail
[0:46] <plugwash> which is supplied by a linear regulator from the 5V rail
[0:46] * danfosheezy (~danfoshee@cpc19-gill14-2-0-cust141.basl.cable.virginmedia.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:46] <gordonDrogon> ok
[0:49] * Turingi (~devon@unaffiliated/devon-hillard/x-7250961) Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[0:49] * dnstbr (~dnstbr@rrcs-24-227-252-21.sw.biz.rr.com) Quit (Quit: Shutting down, yo.)
[0:49] <plugwash> you could probablly improve stability of the ethernet chip under low input voltage by replacing the 3.3V regulator with a lower dropout part
[0:50] * ibrah (~Ibrahim_K@ has joined #raspberrypi
[0:50] <gordonDrogon> I'm surprised people are still using linear regulators...
[0:51] * ibrah is now known as eebrah
[0:51] <gordonDrogon> but it's been a very long time since I've actively looked at stuff like this. Last "computer" I built was 6502 based :)
[0:51] * danfosheezy (~danfoshee@cpc19-gill14-2-0-cust141.basl.cable.virginmedia.com) Quit (Ping timeout: 248 seconds)
[0:51] <plugwash> switchers are more efficient but have higher part counts
[0:52] <gordonDrogon> and therefore cost...
[0:52] <gordonDrogon> and as cost was an issue here, I can see where the trade-off is!
[0:52] <gerrynjr> why the F do they start GDM on bootup?
[0:52] <gerrynjr> oops, sorry
[0:52] <gerrynjr> forgot about language here
[0:52] <gordonDrogon> which distro are you using? Debian doesn't...
[0:52] <gerrynjr> debian does 8-)
[0:52] <gordonDrogon> mine doesn't.
[0:53] <gerrynjr> at least, my image does... in the background
[0:53] <plugwash> debian does if you install it, the Pi images don't come with it installed iirc
[0:53] <gordonDrogon> there is that...
[0:53] <plugwash> the soc has a builtin switcher for the core so it's only ancillary stuff that runs off linear regulators
[0:53] <gerrynjr> didnt install it
[0:53] <gordonDrogon> So yours boots directly into lxde?
[0:54] <blarson__> plugwash: everything but the usb ports runs off the 3.3v regulator, including the 2.5v and 1.8v regulators.
[0:54] <chnops> is X on the debian image unaccelerated? (and can it be?)
[0:54] <chnops> because it's very very slow :p
[0:55] <plugwash> blarson__, no it doesn't
[0:55] <gordonDrogon> it's not accelerated yet.
[0:55] <gordonDrogon> just don't try to run too much as once on it...
[0:55] <plugwash> the 1.5 and 1.8 do but the core supply is supplied from a switcher built into the SOC that runs direct from the 5V

[0:56] <gerrynjr> gordonDrogon: that howto did work
[0:56] <gerrynjr> had to do some calculations for the swap partition though
[0:56] <gordonDrogon> gerrynjr, glad to hear it!
[0:56] * bob1 (~bob@5ac0e860.bb.sky.com) Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[0:56] <gerrynjr> made a partition instead of a swapfile
[0:56] <gordonDrogon> I didn't bother with keeping the swap partition.
[0:56] <gordonDrogon> ok
[0:57] <blarson__> plugwash: ok, you are right

[1:01] <gerrynjr> does the rpi do audio out over HDMI?
[1:01] <gordonDrogon> the arduino ide is written in java.. I imagine it's going to be a lot slow.
[1:01] <gerrynjr> gordonDrogon: it is... was just a test
[1:01] <gerrynjr> tiny board programming a tiny board
[1:01] <gordonDrogon> it should, but I've not tried any audio yet.

[1:03] <dmsuse> why do you need an arduino if the pi can do it all with gpio pins?
[1:04] <gordonDrogon> arduino can do real-time control, Pi can't. Arduino has many PWM, Pi has 1. Arduino has analogue input, Pi hasn't.
[1:04] <dmsuse> what is real time control?
[1:05] * shirro (~shirro@pdpc/supporter/active/shirro) Quit (Quit: shirro)
[1:05] <gordonDrogon> the ability to do something at a precisely timed interval, or provide a guaranteed response to do something in response to an external input.

[1:05] <dmsuse> C code can't time it?
[1:05] <gordonDrogon> not on the Pi.
[1:05] <dmsuse> :(
[1:05] <gordonDrogon> it's because of Linux.
[1:06] <gordonDrogon> It can interrupt your program to do something else at any time.
[1:06] * corbomite (~corbomite@c-98-235-33-192.hsd1.pa.comcast.net) Quit (Ping timeout: 260 seconds)
[1:06] <gordonDrogon> you can mostly "get away" with it though, and it's good enough for some simple applications - simple robots, lights and switches.
[1:07] <gerrynjr> no RTC On the rpi?
[1:07] <gordonDrogon> no clock.
[1:07] <gerrynjr> gordonDrogon: and that is cool
[1:07] <IT_Sean> gerrynjr, no, there is no RTC on the pi.
[1:08] <IT_Sean> You can use a network time server to set the clock after boot
[1:08] <IT_Sean> or do it manually

[1:23] <gerrynjr> heh... sound application cant open device

[2:04] <chnops> i went with debian
[2:04] <des2> Kids these days. We used to program with output like that.
[2:04] <des2> But you have to reduce it to like 16 lines of 32 characters.
[2:05] <chnops> yeah it was mostly the character size that was the problem

[2:05] <IT_Sean> ACK!

[2:05] * IT_Sean prods amelia_
[2:09] <GabrialDestruir_> I must be missing something, does the Raspbmc download not exist or something? Their site points to RPi's and RPi's doesn't have it in the download section.
[2:10] * amelia_ eeps
[2:11] <IT_Sean> you poked me. I assume there is a reason? :)
[2:12] <amelia_> Just saying hey.. finally got home, so getting around to putting an image on disk to boot the pi :D
[2:12] <IT_Sean> aesome :D
[2:12] <IT_Sean> *awesome :D
[2:14] <gartenzwerg> just fine tuned my I2C driver configuration a bit more, now it is nearly 100 kHz, and created a pull request for rpi-patches: http://www.raspberrypi.org/forum/projects-and-collaboration-general/linux-device-drivers-for-rapberry-pi-on-board-io/page-4#p76721 now the fun can start with all kind of I2C devices :-)
[2:15] <Syliss> ugh, i want a rpi now
[2:16] <GabrialDestruir_> Damn.... I can't find my wifi dongle.... lol
[2:16] <Syliss> lol
[2:16] <IT_Sean> is that it over there? ::points::
[2:16] <GabrialDestruir_> Okay.
[2:16] <GabrialDestruir_> All set!
[2:16] <Syliss> i think when they are super avail ill buy 2 of them
[2:17] <des2> 2!
[2:17] <IT_Sean> what distro are you going with, amelia_?
[2:17] <Syliss> i just wish amazon became a partner to by them
[2:17] <des2> Newegg.
[2:17] <GabrialDestruir_> If I buy another one, I sure as heck won't be exporting them from anywhere. lol
[2:17] <GabrialDestruir_> I'll get it locally instead.
[2:18] <GabrialDestruir_> 13 minutes til Pi initialization.
[2:18] <Syliss> newegg is fine but i can get amazon gift cards easily
[2:18] <gerrynjr> something is up w/ the audio driver
[2:18] <amelia_> statd and nfs-common initialisation failed...
[2:18] <gerrynjr> keeps OOPSing
[2:18] <amelia_> IT_Sean: stock Squeeze from raspberrypi.org/downloads
[2:18] <GabrialDestruir_> It'd be awesome to see Pi on Newegg.
[2:18] <IT_Sean> kinky.
[2:19] <chnops> hum that's weird, tried to run mkfs.ext4 on a new partition in the empty space on my sdcard, and it froze right after starting it, can't even login on other VTs anymore
[2:19] <Syliss> speaking of, newegg has a 6ft hdmi cable for less than $3 shipped
[2:20] <GabrialDestruir_> I need to invest in some sort of case .-.
[2:20] <mpthompson> I don't have an hdmi capable monitor, but my monitors do have dvi input. Will the rasberry pi work fine with a dvi monitor with an hdmi/dvi adapter?
[2:20] <gerrynjr> as soon as audio starts, I get a kernel OOPS
[2:20] <chnops> GabrialDestruir_, I used the cartonbox the rpi was shipped in :D
[2:20] <chnops> not sure if that was only rs providing those

[2:20] <mpthompson> OK, good to know.
[2:20] <GabrialDestruir_> Huh.
[2:21] <GabrialDestruir_> Maybe I'll do that too.
[2:21] <GabrialDestruir_> How's the heating or w/e like in the box?
[2:21] <chnops> i want to run my irc bot on my rpi, though it's written for node.js and I have a feeling v8 won't run wel on cheap arm
[2:21] <Syliss> i want to build a lego case since it won't take much, but ill do 1 color
[2:21] * chnops ponders a rewrite to lua

[2:24] <ReggieUK> IT_Sean!!! you've hit the nail on the head
[2:24] <chnops> oh hell, I am getting EXT4 errors about my root partition now
[2:24] <chnops> does that mean my sdcard is bad?
[2:24] <ReggieUK> I've got a mate who is going to make me a wooden case for an arcade controller
[2:24] <chnops> mmcblk0p2
[2:24] <Syliss> nice
[2:24] <gartenzwerg> GabrialDestruir_: this is how it can look like: http://retrotext.blogspot.de and third post is pi in a breadbox :-) (old C64 case)
[2:24] <shirro> chnops: sd cards are a mystery to me
[2:25] <ReggieUK> does all sorts of fancy turnings etc.
[2:25] <Syliss> i want puppy linux on my pi
[2:25] <ReggieUK> the point is he gets nice types of timber :)
[2:25] <shirro> sd cards: how do they work?
[2:25] <ReggieUK> shirro, nand flash + a controller chip
[2:26] * IT_Sean is planning a wooden case large enough gor the raspi, a power switch, relocated status LEDs, and a USB hub.
[2:26] <amelia_> Any reason why squeeze would be displaying at 1824x984 under X nstead of 1080p as it was during boot?
[2:26] * IT_Sean is also planning to relocate all the ports (minus the SD card) to one side
[2:26] <ReggieUK> what I want to know is how the hell they squeeze it all down to fit on a microSD
[2:26] <shirro> amelia_: overscan settings
[2:26] <Syliss> amelia_: don't worry about boot, worry about in desktop
[2:27] <dmsuse> ReggieUK: fibreglass :P
[2:27] <ReggieUK> IT_Sean, were you talking about usb hubs and issues last night?
[2:27] <IT_Sean> I don't recall doing so
[2:27] <ReggieUK> ahh, ok :)
[2:28] <amelia_> I'm worried abut in desktop - boot was fine, desktop has this odd resolution.
[2:28] <amelia_> Any idea how to fix it?
[2:28] <ReggieUK> oh, that was it, you were talking about power from a usb hub
[2:28] <shirro> disable_overscan=1 in /boot/config.txt and reboot
[2:28] <IT_Sean> Yes, i was.
[2:28] <Syliss> i plan on using an iPhone wall plug for my power adapter for a pi, good thing i have like 4
[2:28] <ReggieUK> max current etc.
[2:29] <IT_Sean> i'll probably use a crackberry or generic charger, as i have a few of those lying around.
[2:29] * MrWatson (~MrW@ has joined #raspberrypi
[2:29] <IT_Sean> does an iPhone charger provide 700ma?
[2:29] <Syliss> 1amp
[2:29] <IT_Sean> that'll do :p
[2:29] <Syliss> yep yep
[2:30] <ReggieUK> my usb hub will let you draw 2amps off it
[2:30] <Syliss> yeah good idea to use the hub for power and use like 3 ports on a 4 port hub
[2:30] <shirro> amelia_: if your display chops text off and can't be adjusted the alternative is to adjust the overscan settings instead of disable. config.txt settings are http://www.raspberrypi.org/forum/general-discussion/config-txt/#p40416
[2:30] <ReggieUK> my cheapo 7 port hub
[2:30] <Syliss> ah
[2:31] <ReggieUK> if anyone is planning to use a cheap hub and you've got soldering experience, I urge you to take a look inside and see if there are any caps missing
[2:31] <shirro> amelia_: and while you are there notice the overclock settings :-)
[2:31] <GabrialDestruir_> Haha!
[2:31] <GabrialDestruir_> Found my legos
[2:31] <GabrialDestruir_> ^_^
[2:32] <Syliss> nice
[2:32] * IT_Sean also plans to expariment w/ overclocking
[2:32] <ReggieUK> I've got 2 here and another electronics whizz has got a couple he took apart and examined
[2:32] <ReggieUK> they all have missing caps
[2:32] <Syliss> missing caps?
[2:32] <el7r0> does anyone has any news on the i2s issue? is it finally lost on current revision boards or are there some tricks to mux them somehow?
[2:32] <IT_Sean> and?
[2:32] <shirro> I need to get another powered hub for the Pi. I currently have an unpowered octopus like hub crammed full of low power device. Is a wonder it works at all
[2:32] <ReggieUK> the 2 non powered hubs just don't have any capacitors at all
[2:32] <Syliss> oh
[2:33] <ReggieUK> the bus/self powered line is always tied to self powered
[2:33] <ReggieUK> so if your usb is a bit wonky and you've got a cheap hub........
[2:33] * Da|Mummy (~Veki@cpe-76-190-200-98.neo.res.rr.com) Quit (Quit: Happy Now?)
[2:34] <ReggieUK> the caps. are usually added per port to keep the rest of the systems lines from dipping when you insert a device into the hub
[2:34] <amelia_> shirro: I don't have boot/config.txt
[2:34] <shirro> amelia_: you will not by default. you have to create one if you want non default settings
[2:34] <ReggieUK> but on some of the chinese hubs, they seem to have them missing

[2:37] <ReggieUK> they're also a mixed bag with the cheap chinese usb hubs
[2:38] <ReggieUK> the one I got with mine is a very nice 2amp decent supply
[2:38] <ReggieUK> others are decidedly bad for a 7port hub
[2:38] <IT_Sean> it works :p
[2:39] <ReggieUK> again, missing components, bad design, poor soldering with the chance of shorting

[2:48] <danfosheezy> That kit looks cool
[2:49] <amelia_> Thanks -- tried downloading an ogg file to test audio, stupid Music Player won't open it
[2:49] <IT_Sean> that kit does look neat
[2:50] <shirro> amelia_: alsa is probably disabled by default. The sound driver is a work in progress. Video sound works well under omxplayer and hdmi though

[2:54] <shirro> You may need to do more than that like select the sound output - headphone vs hdmi. I haven't bothered trying yet because it is supposedly unstable and I haven't needed it yet
[2:55] <IT_Sean> GabrialDestruir_, no, they are exactly the right height for two USB ports.
[2:55] <IT_Sean> Perhaps your lego are too SHORT
[2:55] <amelia_> shirro: tried that, then tried opening this .ogg file in VLC (as I'd installed it). TV is saying unsupported sound, no audio cometh :(

[3:18] <shirro> Ben0 has reported that games and simple players work ok, but mplayer has problems
[3:18] <amelia_> -sigh- putting that instruction brought back the alsa error in VLC. Great.
[3:19] <shirro> Personally I think OMX is the way to go on this hardware. So go and get the gstreamer omx driver and the vlc omx plugin ported people :-)

[3:22] <shirro> OpenMax IL is a rather nasty interface to the video and audio defined by the OpenGL people. It works pretty well though. XBMC uses it and the omxplayer can be built from source and it will play media from command line pretty well
[3:23] <shirro> There is a gstreamer-omx that looks to be worked on by Ti and others and I have gstreamer support on my imx53 board which enables lots of gnome apps

[3:42] <jm|laptop> GabrialDestruir_: you might yet need drivers AND firmware
[3:42] <xakh> it doesn't mean it knows what it is
[3:42] <GabrialDestruir_> Bah...

[3:43] <xakh> right
[3:43] <xakh> ha
[3:43] <GabrialDestruir_> Except it's not quite the same... considering that lsusb can actually see the name and stuff.... so technically it does know what "car" is out there :p
[3:43] <xakh> btw, can I set mounting points in Gparted when I'm not using it to install an OS?

[3:52] <xakh> be warned, arch seems to only like going out through RCA
[3:54] <jardiamj> for some reason I thought it had a miniHDMI port
[3:54] * wej (~j@ has joined #raspberrypi
[3:54] <jardiamj> but it's actually HDMI
[3:54] <jardiamj> only through RCA?
[3:55] <xakh> it seemed to only go through the RCA jack for me
[3:55] <ReggieUK> audio should work via hdmi
[3:55] <xakh> one of the reasons I swapped off to Debian
[3:56] <xakh> I used Arch for quite a while on a desktop, but I think for now, I'm good with the comforting embrace of .deb packages,
[3:56] <xakh> and dependency checking
[3:56] <xakh> ok
[3:56] <xakh> be back in a sec
[3:56] <xakh> time to see if this boots
[3:56] <jm|laptop> apt > deb
[3:56] <amelia_> ReggieUK: my audio worketh not with HDMI :(
[3:56] <jardiamj> I understand... I have been looking through the forums, but didn't find information about people having trouble with Arch not going through HDMI
[3:57] <jm|laptop> amelia_: you have loaded the modules, right?
[3:57] <jm|laptop> and the alsa userland tools
[3:57] <amelia_> jm|laptop: thought I had.. tempted to re-flash the SD card if you'd care to give me some hints? tried adding hdmi_drive=2 to config.txt
[3:58] <jardiamj> is anybody using Arch here? that has a different experience..
[3:58] <jm|laptop> modules are loaded in the OS, not the loader
[3:58] <jm|laptop> e.g. modprobe -v snd-bcm2835
[3:59] <ReggieUK> I don't have a pi myself so I can't really comment, I know audio via alsa is a bit sketchy and it's definitely a bit iffy through the headphones
[3:59] <xakh> haha, everything seemed to load. one sec.
[3:59] <amelia_> jm|laptop: done that without the -v?
[3:59] <jm|laptop> fair enough
[3:59] <xakh> I'll be back in a minute, either on my netbook, or on the pi itself
[3:59] <jm|laptop> and what does amixer / alsamixer do for you?

[4:02] <mkopack> heeh
[4:03] <GabrialDestruir_> know of anything small that runs html5?
[4:03] <ReggieUK> I Really don't think it'd take that much to get an ic connected to the i2s pins on the pi
[4:03] <ReggieUK> and get decent analog audio out of it
[4:03] <ReggieUK> instead of their 'special' drivers which I believe are essentially bit-banging a pair of pwm pins

[4:08] <jm|laptop> amelia_: what are you trying to achieve?
[4:08] <amelia_> jm|laptop: not sure - but ebay.co.uk/itm/<itemnumber> works fine
[4:08] <jm|laptop> yeah but there's some sort of e.b.ae/<itm> shortener somewhere

[4:10] <jm|laptop> some lovely helpful people have saved you the 2.5 to 10.5 hours compile if you look hard enough
[4:10] <shirro> though sound seems to work ok with simple players. haven't wanted to install mplayer of vlc because they are a bit heavy just to play some audio
[4:10] <jm|laptop> [giggedy]
[4:10] <amelia_> Ok, how would I get audio working through HDMI? Fresh install - no mention of alsa or modprobe or anything else.

[4:14] <amelia_> jm|laptop: I can try that, but I still won't have alsa or anything else
[4:14] <jm|laptop> why not?
[4:16] <amelia_> Well, it doesn't seem to be there by default, and there isn't any definitive guide as to what has to be installed, what has to be modified, and so on. More than enough conflicting ideas online, but no set 'go this route for hdmi audio'... which I'd have thought shouldn't be as complicated as it seems.
[4:16] <shirro> amelia_: I built my own omxplayer but you could try this http://www.raspberrypi.org/forum/general-discussion/omxplayer-gpu-enabled-video-player/#p74772 (pass a -o hdmi to omxplayer if the sound isn't coming out hdmi). It works find with evil formats like h264, mp4, aac. I haven't tried an ogg yet as they all seem to have been transcoded so I can play them elsewhere
[4:18] <shirro> amelia_: yes, you are officially a bleeding edge early adopter. fun isn't it :-)
[4:18] <jm|laptop> amelia_: I'm not even sure what you mean by "having alsa" :/
[4:19] <jm|laptop> there are the modules, the userland and the client applications :S
[4:19] <GabrialDestruir_> Is sound in debian squeeze just broken? .-.
[4:19] <shirro> alsa is deliberately disabled because it is buggy. it is being worked on. it isn't an oversight

[4:21] <xakh> now, where's fstab located on the device again?
[4:21] <jm|laptop> 'device'
[4:21] <shirro> chromium browser is the best browser available. You just have to be vary careful how many tabs you load and you will get javascript timeouts on things like github
[4:21] <jm|laptop> you mean OS/distro
[4:21] <jm|laptop> xakh: /etc/fstab
[4:22] <xakh> ah, thanks.
[4:22] <xakh> okay, I'm letting it run and install synaptic
[4:22] <jm|laptop> four years? Really?
[4:22] <xakh> while I download quake and get stuff ready for it
[4:22] <Cheery> I realised there would be one real code quality metric

[4:23] <GabrialDestruir_> chrome works on rPi's debian? Or do you mean the OS version which hexxeh is/was working on?
[4:23] <Cheery> that is.. pattern matching. :)
[4:24] <Cheery> I'd guestimate that kind of metric would be far more useful than LOC or anything else.
[4:24] * mkopack is starting to thnk it would have been faster to download and install Ubuntu 12.04 from scratch rather than go through the upgrades from 10.10-->11.04-->11.10-->12.04 geesh
[4:24] <shirro> chromium is the name of an open source web browser which Google Chrome is based on. It is packaged in Debian though it may be a bit old
[4:25] <shirro> mkopack: depends how much crap you have installed
[4:25] <GabrialDestruir_> It probably would of been, mkopack
[4:26] <mkopack> Not much??? would have thought it would have just skipped to the latest instead of going one at a time...
[4:26] <amelia_> shirro: so apt-get install chromium would be better than.. Midori, is it?
[4:26] <mkopack> It's in a virtual machine, so it's not a big deal, but still
[4:26] <jm|laptop> GabrialDestruir_: "rPi's Debian" is just standard Debian stable for arm architecture
[4:27] <GabrialDestruir_> Ohs okay then .-.
[4:27] <GabrialDestruir_> xD
[4:27] <jm|laptop> I guess there are subtle kernel concerns
[4:27] <shirro> midori will be smaller it just will not work on a lot of modern web sites. Go to twitters mobile site and midori might work but to use the desktop site you would need chromium. and the package is chromium-browser as the name conflicted with a hgame
[4:27] <jm|laptop> but you were talking the base/userland part anyway
[4:28] <GabrialDestruir_> I'm experiencing a fair bit of lag on this.... not sure if it's just the pi itself or caused by the sdcard I'm using, anyway to tell?
[4:28] <jm|laptop> 'lag'
[4:28] <jm|laptop> 'this' :/
[4:28] <shirro> web browsing on the Pi is a complete waste of time in my view. It makes about as much sense as web browsing on an Arduino
[4:29] <GabrialDestruir_> slow response time on the rPi
[4:30] <ReggieUK> shirro, I guess it depends what sites you're visiting?
[4:30] <shirro> ReggieUK: anything made this century tends to suffer

[4:31] <ReggieUK> atm it makes me chuckle that people are using the pi in 1920x180

[4:32] <jardiamj> somebody said here before that Arch doesn't like to go over HDMI,
[4:32] <GabrialDestruir_> I'm thinking it installed the wrong chromium
[4:32] <mkopack> hell, the only reason I'm even bothering to do this update is because gparted needs a newer version of e2fsprogs to resize the partition on this SSD for my Pandaboard. grrrr
[4:32] <ReggieUK> I'll probably need 1024x768 or less

[7:22] <shirro> Byan: they aren't willing to pay the fee
[7:22] <BenO> Byan, officially, probably not at all
[7:23] <Byan> thats very sad..
[7:23] <GabrialDestruir_> I still think that with enough interesting they might do it as a codec pack... but who knows.
[7:23] <BenO> But... it's a linux system and you can build what you want. Who knows, someone might write a fast enough decoder for playback
[7:23] <Byan> no BenO
[7:23] <Byan> thats impossible
[7:23] <Byan> not for 1080p
[7:23] <Byan> maybe they can fix DVDs
[7:24] <shirro> maybe our government will change the standard for digital tv :-(
[7:24] <BenO> I wouldn't say impossible - the GPU core has yet to be fully described
[7:25] <Byan> and it will never be..
[7:25] <shirro> I don't think broadcom are in the business of letting people fully describe their products
[7:25] <Byan> there are higher chances of them releasing the mpeg2 codec than that BenO
[7:26] <shirro> i don't think companies like broadcom are set up to sell individual licences and the foundation isn't. So who would manage it
[7:26] <shirro> better just to get another device if you want mpeg2
[7:26] <mjr> also, they'd probably not trust the licenses to remain "individual"
[7:26] <BenO> yep
[7:27] <BenO> if mpeg2 is going to appear, it'll be from us, not broadcom
[7:27] <BenO> and obviously, without a licence... ;)
[7:28] <shirro> there is writing optimal code and there is performing miracles. I think full hd mpeg2 on a 700Mhz arm would fall into the second category.
[7:28] <Syliss> can it do mpeg4?
[7:28] <shirro> it does h264 and mpeg4 in its sleep
[7:28] <BenO> shirro, absolutely, but most sources of mpeg2 are dvd rips - much lower res

[10:09] <gordonDrogon> a little.
[10:09] <jardiamj> I mean noticeable difference..
[10:10] <gordonDrogon> I did some benchmarks on it - they're faster, but for X windows use, very little difference.

[10:14] <GabrialDestruir_> no clue why
[10:14] <GibbaTheHutt> I was sorting my screen size yesterday in here
[10:15] <gordonDrogon> I think theres still work to be done there...
[10:15] <gordonDrogon> have you edited config.txt yet?
[10:15] <GabrialDestruir_> Yea.
[10:16] <gordonDrogon> 1080i ought to have 1920 pixels across.
[10:16] <GabrialDestruir_> I tried forcing hdmi_mode 5 which gets it a lot closer
[10:16] <GabrialDestruir_> but it's still not displaying right.
[10:16] <GibbaTheHutt> have you set hdmi_group as well ?

[10:17] <gordonDrogon> I only have a 4:3 monitor with DVI input - to make that work I need to disable_overscan=1

[10:17] <GabrialDestruir_> 2 is hdmi mode
[10:17] <gordonDrogon> but when I tried my Pi on a TV last week via HDMI it didn't recognise it at all and I got the same resolution as composite video, and I had to leave overscan on.

[10:37] <GabrialDestruir_> That looks a bit better....
[10:37] <gordonDrogon> the issues with having multiple forums is that its simply too hard for everyone to check every forum. I know that I simply don't have the time to and others might be in the same boat.

[10:38] <gordonDrogon> sadly I watched this happen 10+ years ago in the scuba community in the UK - everyone moved from a good couple of mailing lists to usenet then to dozens of forums and it was just imposible to keep track of them all.
[10:39] <GabrialDestruir_> I really need to learn sed
[10:40] <gordonDrogon> why?
[10:40] <hungryhorace> oh, 3D 3d. I was attempting GLES + SDL without much luck.

[10:41] <GabrialDestruir_> I need to make a pi power button that sits between the cord and the pi that allows for the quick on/off -nods-
[10:42] <mervaka_> switch off/on at the wall?
[10:42] <mervaka_> or, sudo reboot?
[10:42] <Hourd_Pi> my hub i power it from has a switch on it :P
[10:42] <hungryhorace> BenO, That's exactly what I found before I stopped last night. I shall be trying it soon.
[10:42] <GabrialDestruir_> reboot isn't working for me
[10:42] <GabrialDestruir_> not sure why
[10:43] <mervaka_> oh
[10:43] <gordonDrogon> make sure your hub doesn't also leak power over the usb up-lead into it..
[10:43] <Hourd_Pi> sudo shutdown -r 0?
[10:43] <BenO> hungryhorace, I'm also doing a simple python version too
[10:43] <gordonDrogon> sudo reboot
[10:43] <Hourd_Pi> gordonDrogon: yeah its cool
[10:43] <hungryhorace> Have been unsure how to get my input events without SDL, though. So I'd been trying for a combination.
[10:43] <GabrialDestruir_> idk.... after I reboot, I lose all picture until I unplug and replug
[10:44] <Hourd_Pi> gordonDrogon: also the pi isnt plugged into the hub, its more of a cord extension with a power switch
[10:44] <hungryhorace> BTW, BenO, having found that page on google I realised I went to school with you.
[10:44] * mervaka_ is now known as mervaka
[10:44] <BenO> hungryhorace, Ah hi :)
[10:45] <hungryhorace> Will email. Don't want to lose my enigma status on irc.
[10:45] <gordonDrogon> GabrialDestruir_, I've manged to crash my Pi into that state..
[10:45] <BenO> heh :)
[10:45] <nid0> does anyone have any recommendations for a decent hub that's definitely properly pi compatible? I've got 2 here, turns out one leaks power over the usb upstream and the other causes the pi to not recognise its wifi adapter
[10:45] <gordonDrogon> then it needed a power cycle )-:
[10:45] <gordonDrogon> the one I'm using "leaks", but it's not a problem - LOGIK ...
[10:45] <gordonDrogon> and it has a 2A PSU.
[10:45] <GabrialDestruir_> I'm not sure what's going on, but after I reboot, it goes through the proper motions, but I never see it come back up.
[10:46] <mervaka> i get the feeling you probably wont be able to power it from a hub.
[10:46] <mervaka> at least not properly
[10:46] <GibbaTheHutt> GabrialDestruir_, sure it hasnt come up, but the display is off bottom of the screen ?
[10:46] <mervaka> usb spec limits power to 500mA
[10:46] <GabrialDestruir_> No reason you shouldn't be able to.
[10:46] * discomeats (~howismyir@213-152-32-22.dsl.eclipse.net.uk) has joined #raspberrypi
[10:46] <mervaka> pi needs more
[10:47] <GabrialDestruir_> Sure it hasn't come up
[10:47] <mervaka> chargers can deliver >500mA
[10:47] <GabrialDestruir_> has a "no signal screen most times
[10:47] <nid0> so can most hubs and a lot of pc usb buses
[10:47] <mervaka> well if they can, then great
[10:47] <GabrialDestruir_> There's no reason a powered hub shouldn't work.
[10:47] <GabrialDestruir_> power the pi with one, then plug it into the pi on the otherside and have it power all peripheals
[10:48] <mervaka> depends whether it has current limiting or not.
[10:48] <RaTTuS|BIG> if your hubn can only deliver 500ma / port then you can use 2 ports to proived the requierd amount -
[10:48] <mervaka> and how closely it follows the spec

[10:49] <gordonDrogon> I think the "trick" with hubs is to get a cheap hub that doesn't actually monitor the output power...
[10:49] <Hourd_Pi> ALL OF THE POWER!
[10:50] <gordonDrogon> So I'm powering the Pi from an usused port on the hub ...
[10:50] <gordonDrogon> you can see it here: http://unicorn.drogon.net/mess3.jpg
[10:50] <gordonDrogon> the short light-grey cable is the power one to the Pi.
[10:50] <gordonDrogon> The "uplink" cable to the hub isn't that visible, but it's from the left of the Pi into the Hub.
[10:50] <mervaka> gordonDrogon: indeed
[10:51] * andatche (~andatche@2001:470:91db:2:f471:380f:1e91:93d0) has joined #raspberrypi
[10:52] <gordonDrogon> because the hub is "cheap" it leaks power down the uplink cable - which is enough to make the Pi run, but not to boot!
[10:52] <GabrialDestruir_> Yeesh, how long have you had yours? o.O
[10:52] <plugwash> gordonDrogon, the tricky thing is you want a simplistic hub BT you want a decent PSU running said simplistic hub
[10:52] <gordonDrogon> something causes a big power spike during booting that knocks it out.
[10:52] <gordonDrogon> yea, it's a 2 amp PSU feeding the hub.
[10:52] <gordonDrogon> GabrialDestruir_, 3 weeks tomorow :)
[10:53] <gordonDrogon> so the Pi has been powered up for almost all that time now, although it is frequently rebooted!
[10:53] <gordonDrogon> it's been overclocked at 900MHz for over a week now too.
[10:53] <GabrialDestruir_> When did you order it? >.>
[10:53] <gordonDrogon> er... I "ordered it" on the Friday afternoon and it was delivered on the Saturday morning...
[10:54] <gordonDrogon> I used that other online retailler of "stuff" called ebay..
[10:54] <GabrialDestruir_> bah

[10:54] <gordonDrogon> I ordered that at 6pm on the 29th of Feb.
[10:55] <GabrialDestruir_> heh I ordered mine 2 hours after it went on sale.... and somehow didn't get in the first batch.
[10:55] <nid0> about 1 hour 59 minutes late for the first batch
[10:55] <gordonDrogon> I goofed... thought they put 6pm on the forum posting...
[10:56] <Hourd_Pi> i managed to get my order in while the DDoS effect was still going crazy at like 06:30 and didnt get mine until this weekend just gone
[10:56] <GabrialDestruir_> The first batch didn't actually sell out in the time they thought it did....
[10:56] <gordonDrogon> it might have if their websites hadn't melted :)
[10:56] <GabrialDestruir_> After the site stopped dying, they took all the orders where someone was like.... "I BUY 600 of these!"
[10:57] <GabrialDestruir_> and reallocated them to people who ordered afterwards
[10:57] <plugwash> The impression I got is that the orders made in the first couple of hours with farnell got completely mixed up
[10:57] <gordonDrogon> doesn't surprise me.
[10:57] <plugwash> so it was more of a lottery than a queue
[10:58] <Hourd_Pi> yup
[10:58] <Hourd_Pi> thats the feeling i got as well

[10:59] <gordonDrogon> debian normally comes with the www-data user and group, but I suspect someone who built the debian images fiddled a little...
[10:59] <nid0> same thing last year with the hp touchpad firesale, a wandering ddos effect that killed every website selling them except amazon

[11:56] <ShiftPlusOne> zag, learn about permissions. You can have a mix of read,write and execute permissions on each file. Each of these can apply to the owner, the group and other. You can view those permissions and figure out exactly what you need to do and why things don't work. Understanding this concept it important.
[11:56] <ShiftPlusOne> *is
[11:56] <mervaka> yeah
[11:57] <mervaka> also, how execute flags work with folders is also important
[11:57] <Hourd_Pi> permissions is vital in linux, as everything is a file
[11:57] <zag> argh still not working :(
[11:57] <ShiftPlusOne> execute flags on folders?

[11:57] <zag> still get permission denied even after logging off and on again
[11:57] <mervaka> whether you can view contents or not

[11:59] <GabrialDestruir_> oh ffs....
[11:59] <mervaka> god no :p

[12:00] <mervaka> what ShiftPlusOne said.
[12:00] <Davespice> gentlemen... question to do with gcc and configure... (if anyone can spare a moment)
[12:00] <nid0> you cant use file explorer to edit /var/www

[12:01] <zag> setting permissions with dos is something i did 20 years ago lol
[12:01] <mervaka> this isnt dos
[12:01] <TonyMonteabag> If you want it to "just work", sudo chmod -R -v 777 /var/www
[12:01] <mervaka> TonyMonteabag: bad move
[12:01] <zag> :)
[12:01] <shirro> dos was single user. you could hide a file or make it readonly. hardly permisions
[12:02] <Davespice> I need to disable inline optimisations, I know --enable-debug=3 does this, but this produces a massive executable file... is there a way to disable in line optimisations but do the build in release mode

[12:02] <mervaka> though it also uses rsync to upload to a remote apache server
[12:03] <mervaka> via sftp
[12:03] <mervaka> http://mervaka.co.uk/~mervaka/.powertrack/
[12:03] <ShiftPlusOne> Davespice, might be worth asking in #gcc or #gnu or #linux or ##c++ ... something like that.
[12:03] <GabrialDestruir_> The program is catching itself in a loop
[12:03] <GabrialDestruir_> this sucks -.-
[12:03] <Davespice> okay cool
[12:04] <Davespice> this is to do with open ttd, here is the back story if you're interested; http://www.tt-forums.net/viewtopic.php?f=33&t=59671
[12:04] <ngilles> Davespice: and they will tell you, -fno-inline ;-)
[12:04] <Davespice> we have an issue which we think is to do with 64 bit integers
[12:04] <Davespice> ngilles: cheers, I'll give it a try :)

[12:07] * Hourd_Pi has decided his Pi needs a game
[12:07] <Davespice> but this issue is I can fix that one place in the code which causes the bug, but there are then unknown other places where similar inline maths could also be going wrong
[12:07] <ShiftPlusOne> What... kind of game?
[12:07] <Hourd_Pi> openttd should do :P
[12:07] * drazyl has decided his game needs a Pi

[12:09] <ngilles> on the other hand if it's a compiler bug or a system header bug, then better fix that!

Then there are vim and emacs which are incredibly powerful editors (and many other things), but have a crazy learning curve. If you're in command line, nano will do. If you prefer a more graphical interface and you use X, then gedit or geany will do. I really like geany.

[12:48] <zag> thx im using leafpad now
[12:49] <dmsuse> nano is the best
[12:49] <nid0> you dont need to alter any permissions while editing my.conf as you shouldnt need to touch it regularly, just use sudo to make the changes you want
[12:49] <ShiftPlusOne> zag, when editing files in /etc/ you'll generally want to sudo, it's not a good idea to change permissions.
[12:49] <zag> got an example?
[12:49] <ShiftPlusOne> so, sudo nano /etc/mysql/my.conf
[12:49] <nid0> sudo nano /etc/my.cnf

[13:28] <zag> oops i mean httpd
[13:28] <ShiftPlusOne> yeah, you shouldn't use apache or mysql on pi. You may get away with mysql with some optimization though.
[13:28] <nid0> if you want a lighter webserver you'd be better with lighthttpd or nginx

[13:31] <dmsuse> bbc ?
[13:31] <jm|laptop> dmsuse: I'm wont to agree but "better" is a little vague
[13:31] <nid0> it all depends on what kind of workload you'll be putting through it though really if its literally just a learning/demo platform then apache/php/mysql are perfectly fine, just dont be expecting to use it as a production server for magento.
[13:31] <gordonDrogon> Gadgetoid_Air, if you know what your reading, it's easy to just add in a custom command to it too..
[13:31] <Gadgetoid_Air> gordonDrogon: It'll eliminate some of the overhead of spooling up the binary for every read, anyway, I'm going to give it a shot

[13:59] <deam> has anyone managed to use interrupts on the GPIO pins?
[13:59] <gordonDrogon> turned it on yet, deam ?
[14:00] <gordonDrogon> hah - you just got it and you immediately want to know about interrupts :)
[14:00] <deam> gordonDrogon: yep sure :-) At first I had a wrong sd card (wrong voltage) but after I got the right one I got it to work
[14:00] <gordonDrogon> I suspect the peoples doing the I2C and SPI drivers have gotten interrupts from it, but I don't know of anyone who's generating interrupts from the other GPIO pins.
[14:01] <gordonDrogon> you'll really need to write a kernel-level device driver to capture them.
[14:01] <deam> gordonDrogon: I see, I found one forum post about interrupts, and that it probably needs a kernel driver. Not looking to re-invent the wheel, but if no one has done it yet I'll do it..
[14:02] <gordonDrogon> good luck. not sure many people will have a use for it though. it's a bit specialist.

[14:02] <gordonDrogon> there's lots of stuff/prople doing simple read/writes to the GPIO pins though. (myself included)
[14:03] <deam> basiscally I want to create a raspberry PI interface to the RFM12B RF transceiver. I prefer to have it interrupt driver but that requires signaling on a seperate I/O pin.
[14:03] <Matt> gordonDrogon: like blinking an LED? :)
[14:03] <deam> * basically
[14:03] <gordonDrogon> lots of blinky LEDs!
[14:04] <deam> I also need SPI, I noticed someone already wrote a SPI driver.
[14:04] <gordonDrogon> get your blinky LEDs here... penny a blink ... http://unicorn.drogon.net/mess3.jpg
[14:04] <gordonDrogon> Hm. They're not blinking..

[14:25] <chris_99> yup
[14:25] <shirro> what were you doing? big network transfer?
[14:25] <chris_99> it seems to happen when i'm using bittorrent
[14:25] <chris_99> only 500K/s
[14:25] <chris_99> so nothing extravagant
[14:25] <shirro> what sort of storage? usb drive or sd card?
[14:25] <chris_99> sd card
[14:25] <shirro> lots of bittorrent connections?
[14:26] <FrankBuss> chris_99: out of memory error in the kernel from kmalloc. the reason could be fragmented memory and invalid use of kmalloc. I had this problem once when developing drivers, too, because I used too big kmalloc sizes and it couldn't allocate continuous blocks, because of fragmented memory. solution: the driver should use vmalloc, if it doesn't need DMA memory

[14:30] <chris_99> vm.min_free_kbytes = 8192
[14:30] <shirro> chris_99: quite likely. I was going to suggest turning turbo mode of in cmdline and increasing vm.min_free_kbytes
[14:30] <shirro> as you can see in that report the workaround is to set vm.min_free_kbytes = 12288
[14:31] <chris_99> yeah
[14:31] <chris_99> i'll give that a shot and report back later :)
[14:31] <chris_99> time for lunch first
[14:31] <shirro> and the other thing you can do is edit /boot/cmdline.txt and add smsc95xx.turbo_mode=N
[14:31] <chris_99> aha ok :)
[14:32] <shirro> it will probably decrease performance. I think is more of a workaround than a fix
[14:32] <Davespice> does anyone here know what the chances are of getting GCC 4.6 for the Raspberry Pi? :)

[14:34] <DaQatz> Nah lets use KDE4!
[14:35] <DaQatz> With full effects.
[14:35] <shirro> Davespice: you can install a chroot with debootstrap or grab an prebuilt image hexxeh put together
[14:35] <tzarc> DIY is probably quicker, tbh
[14:36] <tzarc> writing to SD card takes aaaaages compared to an rsync from a chroot'able directory

[14:39] <tzarc> make scripts for EVERYTHING! :P
[14:39] <shirro> a chroot isn't an upgrade. it is a filesystem within your filesystem.
[14:40] <shirro> when you have finished with it you can delete it and nothing is harmed
[14:40] <Davespice> oh I see
[14:40] <Davespice> so is that how it needs to be done? you can't run it nativly?
[14:40] <shirro> or you can get an image if you have another sd card lying about. not sure where it lives. is mentioned in the forums somewhewre
[14:41] <Davespice> right o, cool
[14:41] <tzarc> you build the chroot on another system, then transfer to SD to boot
[14:41] <shirro> Davespice: you can run it in a chroot to test it and see if it works. then if it is ok, you copy it to its own filesystem. Or you can even start off with the chroot on its own partition.

[15:31] <ReggieUK> anyone any good with electronics and audio?
[15:32] <ReggieUK> cos I was looking up the whole i2s thing last night
[15:32] <ReggieUK> and I found a couple of ICs on ebay that might do the trick
[15:32] <ReggieUK> but not sure what they'd need in the way of a support circuit
[15:33] * UsernameDenied__ (~DDave@2001:638:208:fd5f:6584:49dd:8a1d:f173) Quit (Ping timeout: 245 seconds)
[15:33] <drazyl> you need wires and stuff
[15:33] <jzu> uh, _that_ kind of electronics :-)
[15:33] <ReggieUK> *slow hand clap*
[15:33] <FrankBuss> Gadgetoid_Air: I hope you have added a resistor in parallel, it could destroy your RPi, if you attach LEDs to the GPIO without drivers or without high resistors (1 k at least)
[15:34] <drazyl> and a soldiering ron or summat
[15:34] <ReggieUK> FrankBuss, more likely to destroy the led isn't it?
[15:34] <FrankBuss> ReggieUK: I know a bit about electronics, but usually there are application notes in the datasheet which shows how to use the IC
[15:34] <Gadgetoid_Air> FrankBuss: my resisters are a little on the low side, 820 is the highest I had in the crazy grab bag
[15:34] <FrankBuss> no, the RPi would limit the current, but over some time it could destroy it
[15:34] <ReggieUK> yeah, I know a bit about electronics just not sure about these particular ICs
[15:35] <Hexxeh> at last, VirtualBox has been fixed for Mountain Lion
[15:35] <Gadgetoid_Air> What generally happens if the 3.3v line is connected directly to a GPIO pin? presumably BADSPLOSION?
[15:35] <ReggieUK> well, that would depend on how much current the led draws and whether the rpi pins and the led have matching voltages, if the led never draws more than the rpi pin can give and is a match on voltage then the pi will never limit anything and will be totally safe :)
[15:36] <ReggieUK> but if the rpi voltage is 5v and the led is 3v then without a resistor it will pop
[15:36] <Gadgetoid_Air> Also, obligatory dumb question??? could I just wire an additional resister in series?
[15:36] <FrankBuss> yes
[15:36] <ReggieUK> anything over 200-300ohms will probably be OK
[15:36] * kcj (~casey@unaffiliated/kcj1993) Quit (Quit: kcj)
[15:36] <Gadget-Mac> Lo FrankBuss
[15:37] <Gadgetoid_Air> Fortunately the rpi is, by design, inexpensive to replace
[15:37] <Gadgetoid_Air> So when I blow it up in my attempts to connect a megadrive controller :D
[15:38] <FrankBuss> ReggieUK: the characterstics curve of LEDs makes it very unsafe to supply it with a constant voltage without current limitation
[15:39] <FrankBuss> Gadgetoid_Air: you can connect the 3.3V line to a GPIO pin, if it is configured as input, but if you want to sense a button, better just enable a pull-up on the GPIO and connect the GPIO to GND with the button
[15:39] <Hourd_Pi> Gadgetoid_Air: cheap to replace, but do you have time to wait 6 months for one? ;)

[15:40] <hevauq> hi guys, can a USB port power a board of type B?
[15:40] <mjr> hevauq, if it provides only strictly standard power, no
[15:40] <aditsu_with_pi> hevauq: yes it can, but if you connect more than just a keyboard, it might run into problems
[15:40] <mjr> usb3 ports might do, if it gives full power without negotiation. High-power/charger USB ports should do.
[15:41] <hevauq> mjr: i have a iMac at work and dell laptop. not sure if iMac is USB3
[15:42] <mjr> well, it might be high-powered anyway to facilitate ipad charging or whatnot ;]
[15:42] <hevauq> dell is old, so i am inclined to think it's not USB 3
[15:42] <mjr> the mac, that is
[15:42] <aditsu_with_pi> both companies made computers 10 years ago and still make computers today
[15:42] <zag> anyone know how to enable ssh on the raspi?
[15:43] <hevauq> only thing which i am concerned is that connecting it to USB should not damage the board
[15:43] <aditsu_with_pi> hevauq: oh you were talking about your own dell, ok
[15:43] * Turingi (~devon@unaffiliated/devon-hillard/x-7250961) has joined #raspberrypi
[15:43] <mjr> but, don't count on getting enough power from those computers. USB2 maximum is 500mA, Pi B needs 700mA (and more if you want to power even low-power USB devices off it)
[15:43] <aditsu_with_pi> zag: it was running by default on my pi
[15:43] <hevauq> i have seen boards get damaged very quickly if the powersupply is wrong.
[15:43] <Hourd_Pi> aditsu_with_pi: wasnt on mine

[15:45] <mjr> it's unlikely the pi would be damaged, as the issue would be too _little_ power
[15:45] <hevauq> ah, thanks
[15:45] <IT_Sean> you need 700ma for the raspi B
[15:45] <Gadgetoid_Air> Just successfully read "up" from the megadrive controller, shinies
[15:45] <aditsu_with_pi> in fact I couldn't connect a monitor on the first day, so I accessed it directly over ssh
[15:45] <IT_Sean> more than a standard USB port on a PC supplies

[15:55] <TonyMonteabag> I have an Rpi B, will it not power from a standard USB port then?
[15:55] <nid0> it depends on your pc
[15:55] <Hourd_Pi> probably not
[15:55] <TonyMonteabag> I've not tried it yet due to waiting on a HDMI cable, doh
[15:55] <TonyMonteabag> What are you supposed to use then
[15:55] <TonyMonteabag> :/
[15:55] <TonyMonteabag> Why give it a USB connector if USB doesnt work
[15:55] <TonyMonteabag> lol
[15:55] <SpeedEvil> On most PCs, if you connect it to a motherboard port, it will work juist fine
[15:56] <nid0> people keep banging on about the usb spec limiting pc ports to 5 units but most motherboard buses essentially ignore that
[15:56] <TonyMonteabag> oh right
[15:56] <SpeedEvil> It will probably not work on an unpowered hub, or perhaps not on a recent laptop
[15:56] <Hourd_Pi> TonyMonteabag: because most things get power via micro usb these days as a 'standardised' connector
[15:56] <TonyMonteabag> what about an iphone wall charger thing but with a micro usb lead in instead of a iphone lead?
[15:56] <SpeedEvil> TonyMonteabag: fine
[15:56] <Gadgetoid_Air> TonyMonteabag: that works for me

[16:12] <gordonDrogon> I use GIMP, but it's not a terribly efficient way to do it...

[16:15] * tzarc shrugs
[16:15] * DaQatz shrugs, have to start somewhere.
[16:15] <gordonDrogon> I started with BASIC on an HP desktop system and via 110 baud dialup on a TTY33 to the local computer centre.

[16:34] <BenO> zag, I'm not sure what utilities come with LXDE for screenshots - LXDE is the desktop manager and should handle that sort of thing
[16:35] <ShiftPlusOne> where could I find that log?
[16:35] <ShiftPlusOne> just curious

[16:36] <bootc> ShiftPlusOne: sorry, my pastebing from the other day expired
[16:36] <bootc> -g
[16:36] <BenO> zag, no problem - the key is that the window manager/desktop environment should handle that sort of thing
[16:36] <ShiftPlusOne> ah damn
[16:36] <BenO> zag, on Windows, there is only one
[16:37] <ShiftPlusOne> bootc, do you think it's something that someone will be able to work about?

[16:37] <ShiftPlusOne> I think kexec is kind of really important here.
[16:37] <bootc> ShiftPlusOne: it's not really something I'll be looking at, sorry
[16:37] <ShiftPlusOne> yeah, fair enough
[16:37] <BenO> zag, on linux, there are dozens :) LXDE being one of them.
[16:38] <zag> wow nothing in linux is easy
[16:38] <bootc> I expect it'll need knowledge of the VideoCore to work out how to shut it down nicely before the kexec
[16:38] <bootc> at least, shut it down enough that it doesn't collapse when you boot the new kernel :-)
[16:38] <ShiftPlusOne> zag, it's not that anything is hard... it's that there are many options, so you may get conflicting answers... you'll get to know what you're comfortable with and it will all be a lot less confusing
[16:39] <BenO> zag, with linux, you are given choice and in a minimal desktop like LXDE, you have to make a choice before you use it :)
[16:39] <zag> would "scrot" be the best bet then?
[16:39] * aergus (~aergus@ has joined #raspberrypi
[16:39] <BenO> It's a shame that the LXDE setup hasn't been sorted out then - something to do screenshots should be OOTB
[16:40] <BenO> zag, sounds like it :)
[16:40] <ShiftPlusOne> well there's no best bet.... there's what works for you.
[16:40] <zag> yeh this kind of thing really should be already setup
[16:40] <zag> i cant see our kids setting all this up
[16:41] <zag> basic troubleshooting of programs needs screenshots in our clases
[16:41] <zag> classes*
[16:41] <gordonDrogon> it it was pre-setup, people might complain about lack of choice... there are too many ways to do something ...
[16:41] <bootc> zag: you do realise it's a development release, right?
[16:41] <BenO> zag, I don't think the image is in a very user friendly state at the moment, but it's a dev release atm
[16:41] <zag> sure ;) but I've got 5 kids moaning at me to set this all up :p
[16:41] <drazyl> teh poneyz are not included yet
[16:41] <BenO> For the ponies!
[16:41] <ShiftPlusOne> zag, just give it to the kids and let them figure it out
[16:42] <zag> hehe yeh that might be better
[16:42] <gurgalof> yey, my raspberry pi just arrived
[16:42] <BenO> Yay - GLSL ftw :) (Progress + found another bug)
[16:42] <ShiftPlusOne> hurray
[16:43] <gordonDrogon> http://wiki.lxde.org/en/How_to_make_screenshots
[16:43] <ShiftPlusOne> BenO, other than what you posted on your blog, is there anything else extra to working with gles on pi?
[16:43] <gordonDrogon> in easy terms: sudo apt-get install scrot
[16:43] <drazyl> gordonDrogon is there a screenshot of that?
[16:43] <BenO> ShiftPlusOne, I've got the python side all shiny and working :)
[16:43] <gordonDrogon> then press PrtScr

[16:45] <ShiftPlusOne> BenO, nice
[16:45] <BenO> ShiftPlusOne, I've made a shim to let you run http://glsl.heroku.com/ shaders too :)
[16:45] <BenO> Many of them don't work (OOM errors :() but a number do
[16:46] <BenO> ShiftPlusOne, http://glsl.heroku.com/e#2451.0 is my current fav on the Pi
[16:47] <zag> cool got GIMP 2.6 running as well. Took 1min+ to load... ouch
[16:48] <ShiftPlusOne> zag, gimp is like linux's photoshop... and raspberry pi is like a mobile phone.
[16:48] <ShiftPlusOne> I am sure you can see the problem
[16:48] * hevauq (~Adium@xirium.plus.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[16:49] * hevauq1 (~Adium@xirium.plus.com) Quit (Ping timeout: 260 seconds)
[16:49] <nid0> the pi's actually more like a pretty weaksauce mobile phone from a couple of years ago, the fact it can load gimp at all is pretty good
[16:49] <ShiftPlusOne> BenO, I am not even going to pretend to know what that does. >.>
[16:50] <hevauq> can USB port be used as serial port? like connecting by kermit or minicom?
[16:50] <mjr> hevauq, not without an USB to serial dongle
[16:51] <drazyl> technically usb is a serial port, but I guess you mean rs232
[16:51] <ShiftPlusOne> you can get uart/ttl working with a fairly cheap cable
[16:51] <BenO> ShiftPlusOne, Doing funky things with the video core and shaders :)
[16:52] <hevauq> so, the USB ports are just for peripherals?
[16:52] <zag> ok last question for today, whats the easiest way to share a file to my windows desktop?
[16:52] <ShiftPlusOne> zag, I like winscp

[16:52] <ShiftPlusOne> (install that on windows)
[16:53] <zag> I have putty working already, same thing?
[16:53] <mjr> hevauq, what else would it be for?
[16:53] <gordonDrogon> http://unicorn.drogon.net/scr2.png
[16:53] <zag> ooo thats a good idea, might just copy the file to the webserver :)
[16:54] <ShiftPlusOne> zag, putty is just to get a terminal. winscp is a lot simpler
[16:54] <zag> cool thx
[16:54] <nid0> putty would work, but winscp's easier if you're looking for a straightforward option
[16:54] <ShiftPlusOne> but yeah, webserver will work too... that's how I used to do it before I discovered winscp
[16:54] <gordonDrogon> brb checking cakes.

[17:04] <BenO> gordonDrogon, no, but the meat of it is the same - runs fine for me, albeit much slower than my desktop :)
[17:05] <shirro> BenO: Have you got any raymarching ones running? I got a few shaders running from shadertoy and started on some from glsl.heroku but I started to run into problems.
[17:05] <gordonDrogon> doesn't run on my desktop either...
[17:05] <Gadgetoid_Air> gordonDrogon: It doesn't half explode if I forget to call wiringPiSetup :D
[17:05] <BenO> shirro, I'm hitting a lot of OOM errors with those
[17:05] * gordonDrogon runs from the OOM
[17:05] <shirro> BenO: How do you get the error status?
[17:06] <BenO> glGetError
[17:06] <BenO> The shader and program also have their own methods for getting the error back
[17:07] <zag> ooo winSCP is great
[17:07] <shirro> I wish it was easier to debug shaders. it is frustrating when nothing happens and you can't see why
[17:07] <BenO> shirro -> glGetShaderInfoLog
[17:08] <BenO> Also glGetShaderiv ( shader, GL_COMPILE_STATUS, &compiled) ); if compiled == 0, then you have a problem
[17:08] <shirro> I use that to check for compile errors. it is the ones that compile and don't work as expected that annoy me
[17:09] <BenO> Ah :)
[17:09] <Mr_Rpi> hi... whats the default password for debian root user?

[17:09] <Mr_Rpi> all try
[17:10] <Mr_Rpi> nope

[17:21] <BenO> chris_99, That's how it works

[17:21] <kallisti5> ShiftPlusOne: yeah.. with lots of help of others though :)
[17:21] <Mr_Rpi> and the upgrade took hours
[17:21] <gordonDrogon> Mr_Rpi, you must have to edit /etc/apt/sources.list ...
[17:21] <BenO> chris_99, It doesn't work as part of the desktop
[17:21] <chris_99> BenO, is there a way to hide the desktop
[17:21] <Hourd> chris_99: desktop? :P
[17:21] <Mr_Rpi> that I did
[17:21] <BenO> chris_99, You can run omxplayer from the commandline as well - no need to 'startx'
[17:22] <ShiftPlusOne> kallisti5, would you happen to have a compiled version around somewhere?
[17:22] <gordonDrogon> Mr_Rpi, I'd suggest shutting it down and putting the SD card in another Linux box, mounting it and changing /etc/shadow directly.
[17:22] <chris_99> oh i didn't realise that BenO
[17:22] <kallisti5> ShiftPlusOne: I can build one real quick
[17:22] <BenO> chris_99, as for hiding it, I don't know - omxplayer should really do that part

[17:23] <chris_99> BenO, yeah the only idea ive had so far is to make an application display black before running omxplayer
[17:23] <gordonDrogon> Mr_Rpi, your quite possibly screwed then...
[17:23] <Mr_Rpi> lovely
[17:23] <ShiftPlusOne> Mr_Rpi, what's the problem?
[17:24] <gordonDrogon> he did an upgrade to testing and in the process lost the sudoers file...
[17:24] <gordonDrogon> so he now can't get to root...
[17:24] <ShiftPlusOne> can't he just 'su'
[17:24] <Mr_Rpi> ShiftPlusOne: I upgraded my squeeze to testing and now I dont know the root password, and it says Pi is not in the sudoers file
[17:24] <BenO> chris_99, I don't have omxplayer so I can try this myself - does 'omxplayer --help' or 'man omxplayer' do anything?
[17:24] <gordonDrogon> can you do that with no root password?

[17:26] <kallisti5> lol
[17:26] <Mr_Rpi> yes I could... what are to be writen there?
[17:27] <gordonDrogon> I want the kernel to flip OFF the OK Led when it halts...
[17:27] <kallisti5> it also supports loading a kernel from the be or fat filesystem... but without serial output it's kind of useless ^_^
[17:27] <ShiftPlusOne> kallisti5, I want to see what kexec will do with it... it fails to boot a proper kernel, so I am just curious about that one.
[17:27] <gordonDrogon> you need to APPEND init=/bin/bash to the line that's there.

[17:38] <[SLB]> hi jardiamj, yes it's me eheh
[17:39] <passstab> ShiftPlusOne, rigghttttt because me are doing things with the pi that we need to be super secure
[17:39] * oldtopman (~oldtopman@unaffiliated/oldtopman) has joined #raspberrypi
[17:40] <Ben64> if someone has physical access to machine, security doesn't matter
[17:40] <ShiftPlusOne> not what I was getting at, but ok.
[17:40] * mkopack is wondering if his Rpi is going to just suddenly arrive at the house today??? sounds like others from the same purchase group are starting to get theirs
[17:40] <ShiftPlusOne> exactly
[17:40] <mkopack> even though I never got a notification of shipment
[17:40] <ShiftPlusOne> farnell or RS?
[17:41] <mjr> cleraly you should encrypt the root partition
[17:41] <mkopack> RS
[17:41] <jardiamj> hi [SLB], how have you been, did you a pi[e]?
[17:41] <kallisti5> ShiftPlusOne: let me know if it works. if you want to build it stand alone you will need start.S, gpio.cpp, and a main function that start.S jumps into... then you won't need first32k.bin

[17:42] <mkopack> Lovely
[17:42] <ShiftPlusOne> kallisti5, thanks
[17:42] <kallisti5> ShiftPlusOne: I would use our *entry.S though... nice and simple. Just make sure you link it first
[17:43] <mkopack> Just wondering how they're shipping them to the USA??? Postal?, DHL? FedEx? UPS?
[17:43] <kallisti5> *entry.S not start.S
[17:43] <jardiamj> I got a notification that said that was going to arrive next week, and it arrived yesterday,
[17:43] <kallisti5> ShiftPlusOne: it should be in the same directory
[17:43] <ShiftPlusOne> nope

[17:43] <mkopack> Was it a "you have to sign for it" thing?
[17:43] <[SLB]> am also wondering, will those shipped in july/august have a case?
[17:43] <mkopack> Or did they just leave it?

[17:44] <passstab> Mr_Rpi, whats happening?
[17:44] <jaakkos> at some point i got kicked out and can't log in with the code any more.

[17:46] <mkopack> jardiamj: ok, thanks.. Good because I don't get home before UPS usually tries to deliver to my house
[17:46] <Davespice> I was thinking it might be fun, although it could just be a massive queue of console kids picking their spots
[17:46] <passstab> and now you have an rpi with debian testing?

[18:03] * jzu (~jzu@ Quit (Quit: Kick out the jams, motherfuckers!)
[18:03] <SpeedEvil> Jailbreaking is counterproductive.
[18:03] <SpeedEvil> IMO
[18:03] <SpeedEvil> Unfortunately.
[18:03] <acfrazier> I learn a lot more about how the device actually /works/ in the process
[18:03] <acfrazier> so it's a win/win
[18:04] <jardiamj> http://www.20minutos.es/noticia/1428916/0/richard-stallman/software-libre/apple/
[18:04] <SpeedEvil> Jailbreaking means that you're encouraging sales of locked devices that at some point may be properly locked. And any and all development you've done on them is wasted.
[18:04] <acfrazier> Jailbreaking isn't a carrier unlock
[18:04] <acfrazier> It allows me to run unsigned code, and for the device I have, is applicable until Apple decides to respin the SoC in it
[18:04] <jardiamj> This is what Stallman think about apple... it's in Spanish because the interview was in Spain, I couldn't find an English one..
[18:04] <SpeedEvil> I mean locked = signed code
[18:05] * chris_99 (~chris@unaffiliated/chris-99/x-3062929) Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[18:05] <SpeedEvil> Carrier lock is quite unrelated.
[18:05] <acfrazier> Well, you can jailbreak to achieve an 'unofficial' carrier unlock on certain baseband versions
[18:05] <acfrazier> some people associate the two
[18:05] <SpeedEvil> Indeed.
[18:05] <jaakkos> Guest64854: good to hear i guess
[18:06] <SpeedEvil> I think in some cases, carrier locks are legit.
[18:06] <SpeedEvil> For example - subsidised phones.
[18:06] <acfrazier> In many european countries they aren't legal
[18:06] <SpeedEvil> As long as they are explained in large letters to the user.
[18:06] <acfrazier> Well, the thing was for the longest time AT&T outright refused to even unlock them after the term was up
[18:06] <acfrazier> now they do, but then flip flopped saying if you aren't a customer anymore you can't

[18:08] <chris_99> i just tried running omxplayer in terminal mode, but you can still see the text from the terminal when you play a video
[18:08] <gordonDrogon> Gadgetoid_Air, worked out the 1k8 resistors yet?
[18:08] <Gadgetoid_Air> gordonDrogon: No idea, but they seem to do what I wanted to achieve without causing any fires
[18:08] <gordonDrogon> they connect the pin to +3.3v via a 1.8KOhm resistor.
[18:08] <Gadgetoid_Air> I'm using one of the i2c pins ( pin 8 in wiringPi ) to switch the "select" line of the game pad
[18:08] <gordonDrogon> they are on the 8 I2C pins - in wiringPi land, that's pins 8 and 9.
[18:09] <Gadgetoid_Air> So I flip it between 1 and 0 with write, and that seems to magically work

[18:10] * stuk_gen (~quassel@ Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[18:10] <gordonDrogon> yes, it'll work. When you write a 1 to it, the pin will be at 3.3v, write a 0 and the GPIO shorts the 1.8K resistor to ground, so the remote side sees ground too.

[18:11] <ShiftPlusOne> mkopack, I quite like that whole gnu thing O_o
[18:11] <ShiftPlusOne> and if I didn't, I think I'd recognise that it's an accomplishment.
[18:12] <mkopack> Did he actually WRITE that code? Or did he just do the whole "poster boy sploesperson spapbox" thing?
[18:12] <mkopack> Because over the last 10-15 years it's seemed a lot more like the later than the former
[18:13] <Gadgetoid_Air> gordonDrogon: Thanks, now I understand why it works in this case??? it's basically exactly what I needed
[18:13] <BenO> mkopack, ? curious measure of contribution

[18:25] <dmsuse> if its a really long cable
[18:25] <gordonDrogon> passive power over ethernet.
[18:25] <dmsuse> u get voltage drop
[18:25] <BenO> mkopack, Java remains the one language that I struggle to write without a lot of assistance from an IDE which biases me somewhat :)
[18:26] <mkopack> They've said repeatedly that it doesn't support PoE!
[18:26] <gordonDrogon> it's a pretty common and cheap way to power stuff.
[18:26] <chris_99> what's wrong with using an IDE, BenO
[18:26] <gordonDrogon> I wasn't trying to power the Pi - I just picked up my powered cable that I use for other boars that do take power that way.
[18:26] <mkopack> BenO: Oh, see??? I'm the same way with Python, and even C++ to a degree. It's mostly a case of experience with a language??? practice and all that
[18:27] <gordonDrogon> I do some stuff with ALIX boards and they can take passive power from their Ethernet port.
[18:27] <BenO> chris_99, Me and Eclipse.... well, we don't see eye-to-eye :)
[18:27] <chris_99> oh i quite like eclipse, i think it's brilliant
[18:27] <gordonDrogon> turns out the terminating resistors in the socket are very lowe power...
[18:28] <gordonDrogon> The Pi's ok - it wasn't mine I was pointing to, but the last post in the thread...
[18:28] <ShiftPlusOne> mkopack, I think a large part of dislike for java is also experience with software developed in java. Minecraft, azureus, android and so on.
[18:28] <gordonDrogon> he managed to push 7.5V down a GPIO pin...
[18:28] <BenO> gordonDrogon, It's a very good effort! Smokin'
[18:29] <BenO> Did the guy who soldered directly onto his GPIO pins fix it or did he toast it too?
[18:29] <ReggieUK> that takes some pushing
[18:29] <ReggieUK> they're less than 1/2 that size
[18:29] <mkopack> Shift: Well, writing Java and writing GOOD java are 2 different things
[18:29] <ReggieUK> they're only 3.3v thick

[18:30] <dmsuse> nah thats all rubbish
[18:30] <mkopack> Java itself is a relatively easy language to pick up and start doing stuff in, but to do things well, you really gotta think about effective OO design, and plan things out and be willing to refactor??? Most people aren't and they'll just keep cobbling and shoehorning

[18:33] <chris_99> VB is pretty terrible mind, mkopack it encouranges sloppy programming
[18:33] * warddr (~warddr@Wikipedia/Warddr) Quit (Quit: Ik ga weg)
[18:34] <mkopack> Sure??? but again, a disciplined developer who is experienced and is using the tool properly CAN make very nicely organized, maintainable, and extendible VB if they try
[18:34] <mkopack> And that's the case with ANY language
[18:34] <mkopack> the problem is, there's a lot of people out there who just slap crap together and don't really THINK about what they're doing, nor design for extendibility and maintainability
[18:34] <ShiftPlusOne> chris_99, I am not sure how true that is. Coming from VB, I found it difficult to work with c and c++, so I felt like I was learning programming for the first time (and I was), but I don't think that it encouraged bad habits or anything like that
[18:35] <mkopack> they just care about making it work
[18:35] * Taftse (~Taftse@unaffiliated/taftse) Quit (Ping timeout: 240 seconds)
[18:35] <BenO> ShiftPlusOne, the ' as a comment token used to drive me up the wall with VB!
[18:35] <chris_99> ShiftPlusOne, isn't that a sign that VB is bad ShiftPlusOne
[18:35] <gordonDrogon> it's actually a hang-over from the original Dartmouth BASIC...
[18:36] <mkopack> I started out with BASIC on the C64 - and largely just taught myself. Then when I was a HS freshman, I took 2 classes on Structured Basic Programming and that broke ALL my bad habits in BASIC - I learned how to structure code for maintainability and reusability.
[18:36] <ShiftPlusOne> heh, forgot about that. Didn't bother me, since I didn't know better.
[18:36] <ShiftPlusOne> chris_99, yeah, I am not saying VB is good, I am saying people who started with VB aren't a lost cause, heh.
[18:36] <gordonDrogon> I added // as a comment into my BASIC...
[18:36] <mkopack> When I got to college and had to do my first class in PASCAL, it wasn't that much a stretch for me because I was already doing things in highly organized ways in BASIC
[18:36] * fabrice1 (~fabrice@nat/mozilla/x-uanrcpqciuohnprb) has joined #raspberrypi
[18:36] <chris_99> oh yeah i agree ShiftPlusOne, i started with VB in highschool
[18:36] <mkopack> C wasn't that much of a stretch from PASCAL then, nor was MIPS assembly...
[18:37] <gordonDrogon> this is my gripe when people blingly say basic is no good - it's perfectly good IF it's taught well in the first place.
[18:37] <BenO> ShiftPlusOne, The ' had the same effect on me as: http://xkcd.com/859/
[18:37] <ShiftPlusOne> at least VB was a good intro to windows API
[18:37] <chris_99> true
[18:37] <mkopack> LISP was the first thing to really throw me??? And when I was exposed to OO and just fell in love once I got my head around how to design using it
[18:37] <jardiamj> is there any collaboration Python project, being developed for the pi? I have already searched the forums extensively...
[18:38] <Gadgetoid_Air> Every button reading correctly :D
[18:38] <gordonDrogon> I muddled with prolog for a while. gave it up as a bad idea...
[18:38] <chris_99> yeah lisp is interesting, what with it's funny caaaaaar and cdr's
[18:38] <mkopack> gordonDrogon: Exactly??? It's a tool - taught how to use it well, it's a good tool. Taught how to use it badly, it's a horrible one
[18:38] <BenO> Anyone used Forth?
[18:38] <SpeedEvil> BenO: About 6 times, in 1990 or so.
[18:38] <mkopack> chris_99: Take a look at Lua - I found it to be all the power of Lisp/Scheme, but with a lot of really interesting concepts
[18:39] <mkopack> and without all the damn ( )
[18:39] <chris_99> i haven't looked a Lua. I quite liked lisp/scheme from the little i played with it though
[18:39] <BenO> SpeedEvil, Ditto, but I met it a little earlier. Have you seen the Fignition? https://sites.google.com/site/libby8dev/fignition
[18:39] <gordonDrogon> FigNITION!!!!
[18:40] <gordonDrogon> I met the bloke behind it 2 weeks ago.
[18:40] <gordonDrogon> He's quite a guy!
[18:40] <BenO> chris_99, lua is nice - there is l?ve2d which is a simple game environment for it
[18:40] <gordonDrogon> I almost bought one on the spot.
[18:40] <mkopack> I started looking into Lua because several games I like use it for modding, but I never had the time to really dig too deeply
[18:40] <BenO> gordonDrogon, Yeah, he's cool :) Did a weekend hack thing where he was there with his wife. He got her to solder one up :)

[18:40] <chris_99> aha, the last game development i did was with DarkBasic back in the day, BenO
[18:41] <gordonDrogon> BenO, yup - this was a sort of unconference hack meet in Manchester 2 weekends ago.
[18:41] <BenO> chris_99, https://love2d.org/ writing games with it is one thing - it's just a handy environment that you can use to run pure lua to learn with
[18:42] <gordonDrogon> I did a lot of forth once upon a time, but never really liked it. I powered Suns OpenBoot prom to some new spard boards that a company I was working with were producing.
[18:42] <BenO> chris_99, as most lua use is with embedded C programs (games, etc) and so can be limited

[18:47] <BenO> chris_99, no idea on this setup tbh - sorry, it was a bit of a flippant answer :)

[18:50] <chris_99> although the terminal text came back straight away

[18:54] <BenO> chris_99, if you are on the tty, can you 'clear && omxplayer ....' ?
[18:54] <chris_99> clear doesn't clear it completely
[18:54] <chris_99> it still leaves terminal text
[18:54] <chris_99> at the top
[18:54] <chris_99> :(
[18:54] <BenO> is the video appearing at the bottom left then?
[18:54] <chris_99> no in the middle vertically

[18:55] <ShiftPlusOne> I don't know what it does, but it might be worth a shot

[18:57] <chris_99> ooh that sounds promising
[18:57] <ShiftPlusOne> could you dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/fb0 or something like that?
[18:57] <chris_99> tried that ShiftPlusOne
[18:57] <ShiftPlusOne> oh
[18:57] <chris_99> the text comes back as it's stored somewhere else i guess
[18:57] <gordonDrogon> right. exeter here I come!
[18:58] <gordonDrogon> laters...
[18:58] <BenO> chris_99, And I've had no probs doing video core output when the terminal goes to sleep on mine, so it should
[18:58] <BenO> work
[18:58] <ShiftPlusOne> cat /dev/zero > /dev/fb0?
[18:58] <ShiftPlusOne> sure did clear my screen just then
[18:58] <chris_99> maybe your using X?
[18:59] <mkopack> Syliss: Well, given that even if you tried to order it right now, you'll looking at several months before you could get it, I'd say just wait...
[18:59] <ShiftPlusOne> yeah, I guess the framebuffer doesn't have much to do with whatever omx does.
[18:59] <chris_99> oh wait that works ShiftPlusOne!
[18:59] <ShiftPlusOne> aha!
[18:59] <chris_99> it didn't work with dd
[18:59] <chris_99> before
[18:59] <Syliss> mkopack: rs just sent me a thing sayings it would ship in 7 business days
[18:59] <mkopack> Did you already have one on order?
[19:00] <BenO> chris_99, you might want to monitor cpu usage with that way?
[19:00] <mkopack> Or is this your invite to order from your registration of interest back on Feb 29?
[19:00] <Syliss> since I'm in the usa, they were doing a code program to wait till they got theirs
[19:00] <ShiftPlusOne> BenO, it fills up the framebuffer and quits straight away
[19:00] <ShiftPlusOne> cat: write error: No space left on device
[19:00] <Syliss> invite bs thingy
[19:00] <mkopack> Ah, ok, gotchya
[19:00] <chris_99> oh that was almost perfect ShiftPlusOne but now i''m still left with a flashing cursor
[19:00] <mkopack> Well??? up to you??? If money is that tight, this isn't a NEED it's a Want
[19:00] <BenO> ShiftPlusOne, yep I got that, but on cmdline it refreshes
[19:00] <chris_99> just above the video
[19:01] <ShiftPlusOne> hm
[19:01] <BenO> chris_99, try the setterm - it really does put the terminal to sleep
[19:01] <chris_99> i'll have a play with it
[19:01] <Syliss> yeah i know mkopack

[19:04] <chris_99> now i have a lovely video with no annoying text
[19:04] <chris_99> yeah maybe not
[19:04] <BenO> You might want to wrap the setterms in a script, so that when it exits, you get your terminal bac
[19:04] <BenO> otherwise, you are typing blind :)

[19:18] <Gadgetoid_Air> The consensus seems to be to try hdmi_mode=4
[19:18] <ShiftPlusOne> it would be like hdmi_mode=4 or 16 or whatever actually matches your monitor.
[19:18] <Gadgetoid_Air> I haven't tested with an HDMI equipped monitor or HDMI->DVI adaptor yet, just some HDMI TVs which the Rpi can sometimes be funny about

[19:19] <Mr_Rpi> sudo dpkg-reconfigure keyboard-config
[19:19] <Fiber^> hdmi requires communication when negotiating with the monitor about the modes

[19:39] <Fiber^> yes
[19:39] <GabrialDestruir_> You might have to do what I did.
[19:39] * Delboy_ (~Delboy_@236-108.dsl.iskon.hr) has joined #raspberrypi
[19:39] <ShiftPlusOne> what are you actually seeing?
[19:39] <GabrialDestruir_> Set your HDMI mode, and leave on overscan
[19:40] <GabrialDestruir_> then use the overscan_ options to adjust the screen.
[19:40] * Holden arrived o/
[19:40] <Fiber^> ShiftPlusOne: nothing, monitor doesn't care what setting i gave it to the pi
[19:40] <ShiftPlusOne> oh... I'd imagine you'd at least get something on the screen
[19:40] <Fiber^> nope, nothing
[19:40] <Fiber^> only trough composite
[19:40] <GabrialDestruir_> If you screwed up config.txt video options it'll show blank
[19:41] * Matthew (~Matthew@cpc3-farn4-0-0-cust594.6-2.cable.virginmedia.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[19:41] <GabrialDestruir_> delete config.txt and see if it works.
[19:41] <Fiber^> debian comes without config.txt
[19:41] <ShiftPlusOne> well then.... my brain is shutting down, it's almost 4am.... time to stop communicating with people.
[19:41] * Matthew is now known as Guest3507
[19:41] <GabrialDestruir_> Did it work without it?
[19:41] <Fiber^> of course nope
[19:41] <GabrialDestruir_> Hm.
[19:41] <Fiber^> i am fighting with it since 2 days
[19:41] <Fiber^> couldn't get anything trough hdmi
[19:42] <GabrialDestruir_> You trying to use a converter or something?
[19:42] <GabrialDestruir_> Or plugged directly into a tv/monitor?
[19:42] <Fiber^> directly, no tricks, 1,5 meter long cable
[19:42] <Fiber^> monitor
[19:42] <GabrialDestruir_> Try using another monitor/tv?
[19:43] <Fiber^> i can't, don't have
[19:43] <GabrialDestruir_> Hm....
[19:43] <ShiftPlusOne> well then... time to try every single sensible hdmi_mode
[19:43] <GabrialDestruir_> That's going to make it hard to diagnose.... it could be a simple settings issue.... or something could be broken...
[19:44] <Fiber^> GabrialDestruir_: my first tought was the pi's hdmi out is broken
[19:44] <Fiber^> but couldn't verify it
[19:44] <Fiber^> second: monitor's hdmi died
[19:44] * GibbaTheHutt (~moo@78-105-152-175.zone3.bethere.co.uk) Quit (Quit: Hi, I'm a quit message virus. Please replace your old line with this line and help me take over the world of IRC.)
[19:44] <GabrialDestruir_> Well, do you have something else that has HDMI out?
[19:44] <Fiber^> same, couldn't verify it
[19:44] <Fiber^> nope
[19:44] <GabrialDestruir_> Yeesh.
[19:45] <Fiber^> indeed :D
[19:45] <GabrialDestruir_> I'd give up then.
[19:45] <Fiber^> but i have a multimeter, checked the voltage, it's correct
[19:45] <Fiber^> ~4.85
[19:45] <GabrialDestruir_> Wait til you can go to a friends and test the pi on their monitor/such.
[19:45] <mkopack> Bad cable?
[19:46] <Fiber^> mkopack: brand new cable, but i can't test it
[19:46] <GabrialDestruir_> That could be the issue too.
[19:46] <GabrialDestruir_> Assuming the pi and cable are fine....
[19:46] <Fiber^> of course, it could be
[19:46] <GabrialDestruir_> the issue is the monitor.
[19:46] <Fiber^> indeed, but still can't confirm
[19:46] <Fiber^> and thats annoying :F
[19:47] <GabrialDestruir_> Get a friend with a big screen tv
[19:47] * Laogeodritt (~Laogeodri@wikipedia/Laogeodritt) Quit (Ping timeout: 252 seconds)
[19:47] <Fiber^> hmm, every OS for the pi has the same bootloader?
[19:47] <Fiber^> or i should try arch / QtOnpi?
[19:47] <GabrialDestruir_> and go over and be like "Hey can I plug my shifty looking computer into your TV via HDMI?"
[19:48] <Fiber^> well, i have to tell my friends: dude, i need help, plug this in
[19:48] <Fiber^> they'll say: okay, do it!

[19:49] <GabrialDestruir_> Cause they always look at me like I'm going to break crap.
[19:49] <Fiber^> thats correct, but that many computers i fixed over the years helped me to get some reputation
[19:49] <GabrialDestruir_> Time to go out and buy a new HD tv, Fiber :p
[19:49] <Fiber^> just bought this one
[19:49] <Fiber^> it was .... expensive
[19:49] <GabrialDestruir_> Oh I fix computers.... and I get them working....
[19:50] <GabrialDestruir_> Then I go away and a few weeks later the computer dies and the people haven't touched it since I was there....
[19:50] <GabrialDestruir_> so who gets blamed?
[19:50] <Fiber^> hmm, maybe my neighbour, let me check if he's @ home
[19:51] <GabrialDestruir_> Could be your tv is a bitch and isn't returning any sort of EDID or w/e. So the pi is all like "WHAT ARE YOU? I CANT SEE YOU! I'M NOT GONNA OUTPUT ANYTHING!"

[19:52] <Fiber^> m
[19:52] <Fiber^> i can check via ssh
[19:52] <Fiber^> plugging the hdmi in, ssh into the device
[19:52] <Fiber^> hmm, i have to fix the dhcp first
[19:52] <GabrialDestruir_> Have to enable ssh first.
[19:52] <Fiber^> already enabled afaik
[19:53] * Behold (~behold@d83-183-177-229.cust.tele2.se) has joined #raspberrypi
[19:53] <ShiftPlusOne> GabrialDestruir_, language... and all that.

[19:53] <GabrialDestruir_> you did the whole move /boot/boot_ssh_w/e.rc to /boot/boot.rc?
[19:53] <GabrialDestruir_> Oh right language .-.

[19:55] <GabrialDestruir_> Eh I've just been taking whatever problem I have and scouring the raspberrypi forums
[19:55] <GabrialDestruir_> See if someone has a similar issue then going and fixing it.
[19:56] <GabrialDestruir_> I need to figure out how to make the pi stop thinking it's in the UK
[19:57] <ReggieUK> locale?
[19:57] <GabrialDestruir_> How?
[19:57] <ShiftPlusOne> hide all the tea
[19:57] <ShiftPlusOne> (badoom tsh)
[19:57] <ShiftPlusOne> ok I should really go
[19:57] <ShiftPlusOne> 'night
[19:57] <ReggieUK> however it's done in the OS you're using?
[19:57] <ReggieUK> debian?
[19:58] <GabrialDestruir_> Yea
[19:59] <Fiber^> okay, lets try the ssh-edid trick
[19:59] <GabrialDestruir_> Got it.... dpkg-reconfigure locales

[20:03] <GabrialDestruir_> Yep
[20:04] <GabrialDestruir_> Then time

[20:06] <GabrialDestruir_> What's a file that I can modify during the startup of startx (preferably toward the end) so that synergy is always enabled when I'm running pi?

[20:10] <GabrialDestruir_> It's really weird not having all the usual access to settings and stuff like on ubuntu... lol
[20:11] <Fiber^> super weird
[20:11] <Fiber^> hdmi connected, and the pi is using the composite
[20:11] <GabrialDestruir_> is composite plugged in?
[20:12] <Fiber^> yes
[20:12] <GabrialDestruir_> That there be your issue.
[20:12] <GabrialDestruir_> I'm guessing.
[20:12] <Fiber^> but the order should be hdmi, composite

[20:13] <Fiber^> nope, stuck to the composite
[20:13] <GabrialDestruir_> even after a cold boot?
[20:14] <GabrialDestruir_> and with it unplugged?
[20:15] <Fiber^> yea, cold boot, only hdmi connected
[20:15] <Fiber^> and it starts with the composite

[20:23] <Fiber^> hehe, a new platform brings new bugs
[20:23] <Fiber^> and to be honest, we're the very first birds on this platform
[20:23] <Holden> hey guys, just reconfigured the keyboard layout and now it stops here http://imagebin.org/212022 for a lie 20 seconds... has anyone notices this too?

[20:27] <Fiber^> and my pi is struggling with setting the keymap as well
[20:27] <Kostic> Chromium OS on raspberry pi...
[20:27] <GabrialDestruir_> rebooting now.
[20:27] <GabrialDestruir_> will tell you what I see.

[20:28] <Fiber^> same here, but i don't really understand why i have to restart my pi to get the new layout working
[20:29] * Kostic (~Kostic@net90-0-245-109.mbb.telenor.rs) Quit (Client Quit)
[20:29] <GabrialDestruir_> Mind you it also gets slow later on where it says Setting up console font and keymap
[20:29] <FrankBuss> I had this problem, too, looks like it resists to use another layout than UK :-)
[20:30] <Holden> lol
[20:30] <GabrialDestruir_> That's because the OS were modified with UK in mind.
[20:31] <FrankBuss> right, I think there is a linux kernel settings to compile the keyboard layout into the kernel
[20:31] <Fiber^> removing config.txt results the same: no output if hdmi connected
[20:31] <GabrialDestruir_> Still trying to use composite even when it's not there?
[20:32] <Fiber^> nope, it is no signal on composite without config.txt

[20:34] <GabrialDestruir_> you could probably create a distro that does that

[20:34] <Fiber^> :D
[20:35] <GabrialDestruir_> It is?
[20:35] <FrankBuss> I guess the delay is because it loads the other keymap, but should be not so slow. If you compile your own kernel, you can change it: http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/hints/downloads/files/OLD/kernel_keymap.txt
[20:35] <GabrialDestruir_> Kind of
[20:35] <GabrialDestruir_> sort of
[20:36] <GabrialDestruir_> actually, that's a lie, so far I've yet to see the pi be trully friendly with HDMI

[20:41] <chnops> i noticed an increased delay after changing keymap, but only slightly, seems worse for other people

[22:37] <ShiftPlusOne> UnderSampled, finally got around to getting through that Jesus book of yours, thanks for the suggestion.
[22:37] <Naphatul> GabrialDestruir_: mine works out to 28$ (assuming the pi is 35$), which seemed a bit high
[22:38] <GabrialDestruir_> Assuming you ordered from export.farnell

[22:38] <GabrialDestruir_> 39 and change

[22:39] <Naphatul> GabrialDestruir_: unfortunately my country isn't listed there
[22:39] <Cheery> GabrialDestruir_: keep going! even if it's a bad language you should be able to do it. :)
[22:40] <Cheery> GabrialDestruir_: it's just little more work than say.. on C
[22:40] <GabrialDestruir_> Think my teacher would give me an A if I just did the whole thing in PHP? xD
[22:40] <Cheery> probably no.
[22:41] <Cheery> okay. so do you know the specific name for this VB dialect?=
[22:41] <GabrialDestruir_> Bah... was worth a try xD
[22:41] <GabrialDestruir_> Only that I'm using Visual Basic 2010 Express?

[22:51] <GabrialDestruir_> I can code in it... when my brain isn't broken .-.
[22:52] <Cheery> the syntax is bit thick but it seems you can define an object, then use it as a type for an array
[22:52] <GabrialDestruir_> But it's so condoluted though, that even when I don't feel like my brain is fuzzy I have hard times piecing together exactly how I should code a more complex thing.

[22:53] <Cheery> I still wonder one thing though
[22:53] <GabrialDestruir_> Then I can do an array with like

[22:55] <GabrialDestruir_> If this were PHP I'd be busy trying to make it do more because it was too easy!
[22:55] <Cheery> GabrialDestruir_: aah I see the things I look for are features of a List
[22:55] <Cheery> VB Array doesn't have them
[22:55] <GabrialDestruir_> How do you mean?
[22:55] <Cheery> well things like .Add, .Remove. :)
[22:55] <Cheery> (if they are that name)
[22:56] <GabrialDestruir_> Oh right....
[22:56] <Cheery> okay. so what are the operations you have to do, and what's the data?
[22:56] <GabrialDestruir_> There must be a way to make a blank array or something
[22:56] <Cheery> items in rooms right?
[22:56] <GabrialDestruir_> like Dim items() As String
[22:57] <GabrialDestruir_> Right.
[22:57] <Cheery> so each item is a string
[22:57] <Cheery> and each of them is in some room
[22:57] <GabrialDestruir_> Building upon the program you completed for the midterm, fully complete the inventory program. The program should have the following capabilities: accept at least six rooms a text box for the name of the item a cost field a file system to save your inputs an ADD button to add inventory items a way to display items saved in the file (maybe a display button) by room a way to show a total value for each room when it is displayed
[22:58] <Cheery> you could make a room object.. or then you could make your item a pair of list and a room number. ^^

[22:59] <GabrialDestruir_> does that add to it?

[23:25] <GabrialDestruir_> Oh hey
[23:25] <GabrialDestruir_> that makes sense xD
[23:26] <GabrialDestruir_> VB Arrays are stupid -goes to lists-
[23:26] <Cheery> well I guess they aren't any more stupider than lists in that language.. but they're supposed to be sort of fixed-width ones
[23:27] <Cheery> it's a poor choice for a default sequence datatype.
[23:27] <Cheery> unless your language is C...
[23:28] <GabrialDestruir_> So basically.... Lists are dynamic arrays?
[23:28] <Cheery> lists are lists
[23:28] <GabrialDestruir_> Bah
[23:28] <Cheery> they contain items and you can remove and add them
[23:28] <Cheery> or sort
[23:29] <mkopack> GabrialDestruir_: sort of??? Lists are a dynamic data structure, so they can grow and shrink as needed, BUT they have different access and add/remove performance characteristics than arrays

[23:29] * PiBot sets mode +v farmboy
[23:29] <mkopack> For instance, adding or removing from an array is an O(1) operation. On a list, it's an O(n) because you have to walk along the list element by element to get to the right spot.
[23:30] <Cheery> mkopack: that's only for linked lists
[23:30] <GabrialDestruir_> I will NEVER use VB after this class again
[23:30] <GabrialDestruir_> stupid class -.-
[23:30] <mkopack> Right, but I'm assuming that's what we're talking about
[23:30] <Cheery> oh that class has been successful then!
[23:30] <Cheery> :)
[23:31] <Cheery> mkopack: lists might have different implementations.
[23:31] <mkopack> It's so fast for arrays because it's just a simple pointer offset calculation
[23:31] <mkopack> Cheery: True, but in 99% of the cases ,you're dealing with a singlely linked list structure...
[23:31] <Cheery> the particular you were talking about was linked list
[23:31] <Cheery> and yes. singly linked list

[23:32] * RITRedbeard (~RITReadbe@ Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[23:32] <Cheery> well.. some others might also have O(n) indexing complexity..
[23:32] <mkopack> With Lists (linked lists to keep Cheery happy), you have to ALWAYS start at the first one, and walk from element to element, along the chain.
[23:32] <GabrialDestruir_> not working!
[23:32] <mkopack> Because there's no guarantee that the elements are all located in order in a contiguous block of memory
[23:32] <GabrialDestruir_> Dim strItem As List(Of String)()
[23:32] <Cheery> GabrialDestruir_: is it saying something to you?
[23:32] <GabrialDestruir_> So I'm assuming to add it'd be strItem.Add(itemtoadd)
[23:33] <GabrialDestruir_> right?
[23:33] <Cheery> yes
[23:33] <GabrialDestruir_> but that gives me Error 1 'Add' is not a member of 'System.Array'.
[23:33] <GabrialDestruir_> ohs
[23:33] <GabrialDestruir_> ffs
[23:33] <Cheery> you seem to have made an array somehow
[23:34] <mkopack> Sorry, it's been 10+ years since i've done VB so I'm no help.

[23:35] <mkopack> Just google and dig through the VB docs??? Hell, I taught myself how to do Lotusscript (similar to VB) back in the day that way??? It was all just copy/pasting code snippets from the examples in the documentation
[23:35] <Cheery> that's a basic thing he's trying to do. but he's fighting against the language
[23:36] <GabrialDestruir_> It's because the language is stupid!
[23:36] <FunnyLookinHat> LOL VB
[23:36] <FunnyLookinHat> Sorry GabrialDestruir_
[23:36] <FunnyLookinHat> That stinks :(
[23:36] <GabrialDestruir_> If I had a time machine I'd wipe VB off the face of the earth! -.-
[23:37] <Cheery> GabrialDestruir_: lol. don't be so silly. it pawed way to better languages.. eventually
[23:37] <Cheery> ..except that original VB was better
[23:38] <Cheery> in VB.NET microsoft invented some more failures into the language it seems.
[23:38] <FunnyLookinHat> VB.Net is a bit worthless
[23:38] <FunnyLookinHat> With the advent of C#
[23:38] <Cheery> true
[23:38] <FunnyLookinHat> Then again - the entire .NET setup is worthless ( minus the C++ stuff ) if you consider Java IMHO
[23:38] <Cheery> I guess nobody really has to use VB.Net for anything
[23:38] <FunnyLookinHat> It's used for RAD in big companies that need stupid little apps to do this and that
