[0:00] * mkopack (~mkopack@ Quit (Quit: mkopack)
[0:00] <GabrialDestruir> Other stuff sounds fine... so it's something to do with how the file is encoded .-.
[0:01] * Kushan (Kushykins@ Quit (Quit: Hosted by rdlBNC (Server 9 - United Kingdom))
[0:01] * IT_Sean (~sean@applefritter/IRCStaff/UltimateMacUser1) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:01] * PiBot sets mode +v IT_Sean
[0:01] * PiBot sets mode +v IT_Sean
[0:02] <GabrialDestruir> A52 Audio, 3F2R/LFE, 48000Hz, 384 kb/s
[0:02] * s[x] (~sx]@eth589.qld.adsl.internode.on.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:02] * PiBot sets mode +v s[x]
[0:02] <bootc> Simon-: I'll work on rpi-linear then
[0:03] <DaQatz> My understanding is that the Pi's audio driver is an alpha state.
[0:03] * UnderSampled|ta1 (~UnderSamp@ has joined #raspberrypi
[0:03] * PiBot sets mode +v UnderSampled|ta1
[0:03] <amelia_> DaQatz: really? I'd like working audio on my Pi :P
[0:03] <GabrialDestruir> Well I hadn't any issues with Audio over HDMi until now.
[0:03] * Maccer (~Maccer@ Quit (Excess Flood)
[0:03] <Simon-> bootc: now editing the enc424j600 code
[0:04] <Simon-> bootc: this is your fault
[0:04] <DaQatz> amelia_, We all would, but we have to wait for them to finish the driver.
[0:04] * Elfish (amba@2a01:4f8:100:90a1:abc:abc:abc:abc) Quit (Ping timeout: 260 seconds)
[0:05] * Siph0n (~Siph0n@157.sub-174-235-196.myvzw.com) Quit (Ping timeout: 256 seconds)
[0:05] <GabrialDestruir> and suddenly it sounds fine
[0:05] <Simon-> usb, dma and sd are kind of more important than audio
[0:05] <GabrialDestruir> -facedesks-
[0:06] <amelia_> usb and sd seem to be working for me? :D
[0:06] * Nyn3x (~Nyn3x@securitycenter.rit.edu) Quit (Ping timeout: 245 seconds)
[0:06] <DaQatz> Simon-, I agree
[0:06] * TeePs (~AndChat59@ has joined #raspberrypi
[0:06] * PiBot sets mode +v TeePs
[0:06] <DaQatz> Simon-, They do seem to work though
[0:07] * luigy (~luigy@pool-96-242-21-81.nwrknj.fios.verizon.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:07] * PiBot sets mode +v luigy
[0:07] <Simon-> and the sound driver requires vchiq, so it's going to be last
[0:07] * Foxhoundz (~Fujitsu@adsl-75-58-145-68.dsl.rcsntx.sbcglobal.net) Quit (Quit: Leaving.)
[0:07] <Simon-> (I am *not* rewriting vchiq, someone else will have to do it)
[0:07] * UnderSampled|tab (~UnderSamp@ has joined #raspberrypi
[0:07] * PiBot sets mode +v UnderSampled|tab
[0:08] * Maccer (~Maccer@ has joined #raspberrypi
[0:08] * PiBot sets mode +v Maccer
[0:08] <bootc> Simon-: you already ordered that chip?
[0:09] <Simon-> bootc: yes
[0:09] * UnderSampled|ta1 (~UnderSamp@ Quit (Ping timeout: 246 seconds)
[0:09] <Simon-> oh wait
[0:09] <Simon-> I could boot 3.1.9 and kexec
[0:09] <gurgalof> ffserver does not work in debian squeeze
[0:10] <DaQatz> !channel #raspberrypi-dev
[0:10] <PiBot> DaQatz: #raspberrypi-dev - Chat room for Raspberry PI development discussion.
[0:10] <Simon-> oh well
[0:10] <gurgalof> it just says Illegal instruction
[0:10] * Elfish (amba@2a01:4f8:100:90a1:abc:abc:abc:abc) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:10] * PiBot sets mode +v Elfish
[0:10] <Simon-> except my kexec doesn't understand dt so I need to come up with some custom boot code
[0:10] <GabrialDestruir> I think I'm gonna have my Pi Automount Samba directs for the Video/Music/Etc
[0:10] <GabrialDestruir> .-.
[0:11] * jdripper (~nigel@027c9059.bb.sky.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:11] * PiBot sets mode +v jdripper
[0:11] * TeePs (~AndChat59@ Quit (Ping timeout: 265 seconds)
[0:13] <bootc> yeah that might be a bigger issue
[0:13] <bootc> getting kexec to work with dt
[0:13] <bootc> I did say wait until I'd got mine working :-/
[0:14] <Simon-> it's a kexec problem
[0:14] <Simon-> well, not problem
[0:14] <Simon-> kexec feature
[0:14] <Simon-> you just need a newer release of kexec
[0:14] <Simon-> surely kexec supports dt?
[0:14] * finnx (~sheppards@99-39-251-198.lightspeed.tukrga.sbcglobal.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:14] * PiBot sets mode +v finnx
[0:14] <Simon-> and I can just hack in my own dt in front of the kernel
[0:15] <Simon-> just need to move the kernel up to 64KB
[0:15] <friggle> bootc: Simon-: if either of you do happen to know some ALSA hackers who might at least review Dom's code, I know he'd find it helpful
[0:15] <GabrialDestruir> Apparently I can't disable subtitles in XBMC -.-
[0:16] <GabrialDestruir> wtf
[0:16] <Simon-> http://s85.org/AsHpypSZ
[0:16] <Simon-> friggle: the problem is not the alsa code
[0:16] <friggle> Simon-: ah, that's good to know
[0:16] <Simon-> friggle: the problem is that it depends on the vchiq code which is a gigantic Broadcom thing with an ABI
[0:17] * XeCrypt is now known as Tuxuser
[0:17] <friggle> Simon-: well yes, hard to get round the vchiq requirement
[0:18] <Simon-> it may not actually depend on it
[0:19] <Simon-> oh
[0:19] <Simon-> actually it does
[0:19] <Simon-> someone will need to write a vcos subsystem
[0:20] * Nyn3x (~Nyn3x@securitycenter.rit.edu) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:20] * PiBot sets mode +v Nyn3x
[0:20] <friggle> Simon-: what, you mean we can't just push vchiq upstream as-is ;)
[0:20] <Simon-> you can try sending it as a patch to the lkml
[0:21] <Simon-> someone will personally visit you to disconnect you
[0:21] <friggle> should have submitted the patches on April 1
[0:21] <Simon-> I suspect the rpi broadcom devs will need to do it
[0:22] <Simon-> in their own time
[0:22] * MrWatson (~MrW@24-197-27-35.dhcp.leds.al.charter.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:22] * PiBot sets mode +v MrWatson
[0:22] <Simon-> it probably it needs a complete from scratch rewrite with large chunks ripped out of it
[0:22] <Simon-> much like the usb driver
[0:23] * iccanobif (iccanobif@host130-120-dynamic.25-79-r.retail.telecomitalia.it) Quit ()
[0:23] <Simon-> e.g. vcos_mutex_create
[0:24] <friggle> Simon-: I'll flag it up. If you work magic on the USB driver it becomes the only real blocker
[0:24] * TeePs (~AndChat59@pa58-109-129-159.pa.nsw.optusnet.com.au) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:24] * PiBot sets mode +v TeePs
[0:25] <Simon-> friggle: someone could work on the dmaengine driver too if they fully understand it, but I expect bootc or myself can finish that with time
[0:25] * SStrife (~ss@ip-218-131-161-203.static.pipenetworks.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:25] * PiBot sets mode +v SStrife
[0:25] * IT_Sean (~sean@applefritter/IRCStaff/UltimateMacUser1) Quit (Quit: Off)
[0:25] <Simon-> I have a template in my rpi-next branch
[0:25] <Simon-> I haven't even tried to get the sd card driver to work, it's full of device specific quirks :/
[0:26] <friggle> Simon-: the Broadcom guys know the hardware inside out, but not upstream kernel standard and practices. So if you and bootc can do the dmanegine driver you're probably best placed
[0:26] <Simon-> friggle: some documentation on the DMA interface would be very helpful
[0:26] <friggle> Simon-: I'll drop an email to Eben and Dom. What do you need that isn't in the released spec?
[0:26] <Simon-> friggle: there's nothing in the released spec ;)
[0:27] <Simon-> oh.
[0:27] <Simon-> there is!
[0:27] <Simon-> I didn't see that
[0:27] <friggle> DMA engines are one useful thing that did get included :)
[0:27] <bootc> heh, oops :-)
[0:27] <SBeans> ls
[0:29] <Simon-> the doorbell stuff isn't documented so I kind of implemented the minimum based on what vcos is doing
[0:29] <Simon-> which will probably be enough but it'd nice to have something better than "check if it contains 0x4"
[0:30] <friggle> Simon-: I'll see if there's anything that can be sent without an NDA. If not, it might be easiest to just fire questions at Dom and the others
[0:31] * shirro (~shirro@pdpc/supporter/active/shirro) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:31] * PiBot sets mode +v shirro
[0:32] <Simon-> friggle: they should seek advice from http://www.linuxdriverproject.org/mediawiki/index.php/Main_Page on vchiq
[0:33] <Simon-> determining how and where it should be put in the kernel is way beyond what I'm capable of
[0:33] <friggle> Simon-: noted
[0:35] <Simon-> (especially if alsa needs it; if it was just a character device it'd be simpler)
[0:35] * farmboy (~quassel@cpc15-cmbg14-2-0-cust146.5-4.cable.virginmedia.com) Quit (Ping timeout: 276 seconds)

[0:36] * Milos (~Milos@pdpc/supporter/student/milos) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:36] * PiBot sets mode +v Milos
[0:37] <friggle> the userspaces gl libs need it too, but I suppose there's not much sympathy from upstream kernel devs there
[0:37] <Simon-> as far as I can tell it's just a character device with an API
[0:37] <Simon-> I'm assuming you can probably get that in as long as the code conforms to the standards
[0:38] <friggle> my understanding is that upstream don't want to take code that solely exists to support proprietary drivers
[0:38] <friggle> but, in-kernel ALSA is a legitimate use-case
[0:38] <Simon-> oh
[0:38] <Simon-> can you get rid of /proc/vc-mem? does userspace require it?
[0:39] <Simon-> /dev/mem should work just as well
[0:40] <friggle> Simon-: I would expect it would be easy to do without even if the current userspace code does use it, but I don't have access to the codebase. We'll have to wait on Dom or one of the other Broadcom guys to answer
[0:40] <Simon-> the main issue with it for the future is just avoiding it being established in userspace libraries
[0:41] * amelia_ (~amelia@host-92-23-195-169.as13285.net) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[0:42] <friggle> I'll flag it up. My understanding is that memory handling should change in the coming months as we hopefully get CMA support

[1:31] <shirro> damn, everyone is asleep
[1:33] <SpeedEvil> I'm not.
[1:33] <plugwash> can't say i've seen it but i've only tried using the Pi as a desktop device briefly
[1:33] <SpeedEvil> I, however, have no experience of that problem.
[1:34] <SpeedEvil> using a powered hub?
[1:34] <shirro> no. it is a keyboard. I shouldn't need one. It doesn't have an lcd and blinkenlights
[1:35] <SpeedEvil> What are you powering the Pi from?
[1:35] <shirro> Nothing I plug into the Pi is rated at more than 100mA. I use an iPad or iPhone psu
[1:35] <SpeedEvil> And actual apple one?

[1:37] <shirro> it doesn't happen often but is kind of annnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnoying when it happens
[1:37] <SpeedEvil> I have that happen with my keyboard.
[1:37] <SpeedEvil> Sort-of
[1:37] <SpeedEvil> it's a ps/2 one on a USB converter.
[1:38] <SpeedEvil> It deletes chars though

[1:39] <shirro> Has anyone managed to get the samsung usb drivers working on the Pi? It would be great to have an alternative, even if it lacks some functionality. Would also make it more obvious what is a hardware issue and what is buggy drivers
[1:39] * SStrife (~ss@ip-218-131-161-203.static.pipenetworks.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:39] * PiBot sets mode +v SStrife
[1:40] <shirro> Just walking the device tree with udevadm gets an oops out of dwc_otc. It is a house of cards
[1:40] <SpeedEvil> samsung usb?
[1:40] <friggle> shirro: I believe the s3c-hsotg is device mode only
[1:40] <friggle> shirro: Simon- has started tackling the dwc_otg driver though :)
[1:41] <shirro> Can he throw it out and start from scratch?
[1:41] * yanu (~yanu@lugwv/member/yanu) Quit (Read error: Operation timed out)
[1:41] <friggle> shirro: seems to be roughly what he's doing https://github.com/lp0/linux/branches
[1:42] <SpeedEvil> It's not a samsung part.
[1:42] <SpeedEvil> Why should a samsung driver work?

[1:42] <friggle> SpeedEvil: s3c-hsotg which was integrated upstream is an instantiation of the same IP block
[1:42] <shirro> SpeedEvil: they make phones and stuff
[1:43] <SpeedEvil> k
[1:43] <SpeedEvil> shirro: I know
[1:43] <friggle> but they only did the otg part, which we don't care about
[1:43] <shirro> SpeedEvil: It isn't all their own IP blocks. They license stuff
[1:43] <Crenn-NAS> Damn it!! Still haven't been sent a Pi :(
[1:43] <SpeedEvil> shirro: sure.
[1:44] <shirro> friggle: that sucks. I though the otg was the bit they didn't do which was great. misread that one
[1:45] <SpeedEvil> OTG is not hostmode.

[1:45] <SpeedEvil> Very few devices actually implement OTG properly.
[1:45] <SpeedEvil> OTG is hostmode + devicemode plus _wacky_ turnaround.
[1:46] <friggle> yes, so technically speaking this just did devicemode
[1:46] <friggle> *they
[1:47] <shirro> I keep meaning to play with OTG on the imx. Perhaps run a storage driver backed by it's 1GB ram as swap for the Pi :-)

[1:52] <zgreg> is there anything new regarding the USB power/polyfuse issues, or the SD card compatibility and performance issues?
[1:53] <zgreg> after the reorganization, the forums are even more of a mess
[1:54] <plugwash> I haven't heard anything official from the foundation other than they are working on it
[1:54] <zgreg> hm.. okay
[1:54] <plugwash> my personal unofficial reccomendation if you are having voltage problems with USB devices is to bridge out the polyfuses on the USB ports
[1:54] * ShiftPlusOne (~shift@unaffiliated/shiftplusone) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:54] * PiBot sets mode +v ShiftPlusOne
[1:54] <SpeedEvil> Probably not insane.
[1:54] <zgreg> plugwash: yes, that seems like a good idea
[1:54] <plugwash> It's certainly not an issue that can be solved by software
[1:54] <SpeedEvil> However.
[1:55] <SpeedEvil> If you're having problems that are that close to the edge - you need to fix your PSU or cabling
[1:55] <zgreg> 140 mA limiting wouldn't really hurd, but the polyfuses apparently also have notable ohmic resistance to start with
[1:55] <zgreg> *hurt
[1:55] <SpeedEvil> 1400
[1:55] <SpeedEvil> It varies.
[1:55] <plugwash> SpeedEvil, BS, i've run the sums based on resistances people posted on the forums and with the PSU perfectly in spec the USB port voltage may well be out of spec
[1:56] <SpeedEvil> Thr 'untripped' resistance is considerably lower
[1:56] <plugwash> IIRC the untripped resistance was about 5-7 ohms
[1:56] <shirro> I will bridge them once I get a second board. My other arm board has a 1.1a polyfuse to cover both usb.
[1:56] <SpeedEvil> that is - a virgin device
[1:56] <SpeedEvil> plugwash: nowhere near that
[1:56] <plugwash> at least that is what people claim on the forums, I haven't tested it myself yet
[1:57] <zgreg> the most practical test would be to simply check the voltage on the usb terminals
[1:57] <zgreg> with a device attached and in use
[1:57] <shirro> My power supply is 10W from a major manufacturer so I reckon I can handle a bit more current to the usb devices
[1:58] <zgreg> I think the SD performance issue is also pretty serious
[1:58] <ShiftPlusOne> To get serial working, do I need to connect the 5v line coming from the cable?
[1:58] <plugwash> zgreg, that would prove things for that particular device but to be sure in general you really need to build a 100ma (official max current for a low power device) dummy load to test with
[1:58] <shirro> sd performance is shocking. but is that just sd or is it the Pi?
[1:58] <zgreg> shirro: it's the pi
[1:58] <plugwash> anyway bridge out the USB polyfuses and hook up a 5V 2A PSU to the GPIO header and all your power problems will be solved even with high power devices.
[1:58] <zgreg> apparently the SD clock is limited to ~12 MHz, while it can be upped to 50 MHz
[1:59] <shirro> I have tried to align my partitions. I have journaling disabled. noatime. I am using eatmydata ffs. It is crazy
[1:59] * IT_Sean (~sean@applefritter/IRCStaff/UltimateMacUser1) Quit (Quit: off)
[1:59] <zgreg> (random) write performance on most SD cards is crap, yeah, but that's a separate issue for the most part
[1:59] <shirro> zgreg: is that a software controlled clock
[2:00] <plugwash> ShiftPlusOne, your cable MUST have an IO voltage of 3.3V, the fact you talk about a 5V power line makes me worry that it doesn't

[2:09] <SpeedEvil> Annoyingly, I need to dig out my 9V batteries from the freezer to change out the batteries in my meters.
[2:09] <plugwash> my undestanding was that the major cause of USB volt drop was the low rating polyfuses on the USB ports, not the big one on the whole board
[2:09] <shirro> how fast can the Pi's spi go? Don't supposed there is a hostmode usb over spi board out there with good kernel support?

[2:10] <shirro> tzarc: sick kids are worse
[2:10] <tzarc> I'd imagine so :P
[2:11] <plugwash> IIRC the max theoretical speed for the module is a couple of hundred megahertz but it's not clear what speed the hardware and software can actually keep up with
[2:11] * wiiguy (~fake@unaffiliated/wiiguy) Quit (Quit: The real world is just a crappy game... The ideal world can only be found within a game. Such was my believe. But if an ideal can be found within a crappy game, there may be an ideal route in the real world... for me to discover)
[2:11] <tzarc> on the plus side, I've cleaned up my tmux config
[2:11] <SpeedEvil> SD is very SPI-like
[2:11] <SpeedEvil> It's probably safe to say at least 12MHz
[2:11] <shirro> I thought SD was SPI internally
[2:11] <zgreg> no, it IS spi ;)
[2:12] <zgreg> well, at least part of protocol is pure SPI
[2:12] <plugwash> zgreg, SD cards can operate in a number of modes one of which is SPI based
[2:12] <zgreg> yeah, I know
[2:12] <plugwash> but it's also the slowest shittiest mode afaict
[2:12] <SpeedEvil> SD is 4 bit wide though
[2:12] <SpeedEvil> (usually)
[2:12] <zgreg> yes, it's the slowest mode - but it's also great because it's almost trivial to implement
[2:13] <zgreg> crappy 8-bit MCUs with small amounts of flash memory can read and write SD without any problem
[2:13] <plugwash> also given how poorly defined SPI is "pure SPI" is a bit of a strange term
[2:13] * Syliss (~Syliss@adsl-108-82-201-7.dsl.chi2ca.sbcglobal.net) Quit (Quit: Syliss)
[2:13] <zgreg> poorly defined? what are you referring to?
[2:13] <SpeedEvil> zgreg: not really
[2:13] <zgreg> chip select?
[2:14] <SpeedEvil> zgreg: you need at least 512 bytes of buffer memory
[2:14] <SpeedEvil> In practice quite a lot more to hold the filesystem state
[2:14] <GabrialDestruir> How can you check clock speed via ssh?
[2:14] <plugwash> rules for operating chip select (it's usually used as more than just a chip select), and which clock edges things happen on are all highly variable afaict
[2:15] <plugwash> and afaict there is no formal standard
[2:15] <zgreg> SpeedEvil: you *could* put together or filter data on the fly. but really, even tiny MCUs have at least 1 KB RAM nowadays
[2:15] <SpeedEvil> zgreg: I'm pondering buying one with 20 bytes
[2:15] <plugwash> SpeedEvil, which one?
[2:15] <shirro> GabrialDestruir: cpu clock?
[2:15] <zgreg> well, that's another dimension of tiny, then :)
[2:15] <SpeedEvil> PIC10F
[2:16] <SpeedEvil> It's significantly cheaper in reasonable volumes.
[2:16] <GabrialDestruir> yea
[2:16] <GabrialDestruir> the speed
[2:16] <zgreg> also, you don't necessarily need a complex file system like FAT, you can make your own
[2:16] <GabrialDestruir> Like 700Mhz, 800Mhz, etc
[2:16] * luigy (~luigy@ip-64-134-24-141.public.wayport.net) Quit (Ping timeout: 276 seconds)
[2:16] <SpeedEvil> The ohter nasty part is that SDs don't really have a bounded time to respond to commands.
[2:16] <shirro> GabrialDestruir: I just look at /proc/cpu - I don't know it the clock speed is available directly
[2:17] <SStrife> zgreg: Exactly, just start writing bits to the card's sectors
[2:17] <SpeedEvil> Which can blow up buffer RAM a lot in some cases
[2:17] <SStrife> then dd them out to a file in Linux later :P
[2:17] <shirro> I mean /proc/cpuinfo
[2:17] <SpeedEvil> cpuinfo does not have the clock speed
[2:17] <shirro> No but you can guess from bogomips
[2:18] <shirro> It would be nice to have something in proc that listed the clocks for all devices on the system
[2:18] <GabrialDestruir> Hm mkay
[2:19] <GabrialDestruir> Trying to figure out why there's a sudden slowness on my pi.-.
[2:20] <shirro> the freescale kernel has a /proc/cpu/clocks. lists 94 clocks in the system.
[2:21] <zgreg> bogomips should be about 2/3 of the clock speed in MHz
[2:21] <GabrialDestruir> Mine is showing about 795
[2:22] <zgreg> strange, it behaves differently on my armv6 device (non-pi)
[2:22] <shirro> GabrialDestruir: you are running 800Mhz then. Is about 1:1 on mine
[2:22] <zgreg> but maybe something is off on my end
[2:23] <GabrialDestruir> But blah slowness.
[2:24] <zgreg> ah, looks like the bogomips on that device only refer to the clock at bootup
[2:24] <zgreg> GabrialDestruir: well, you can definitely see that the cpu isn't superscalar in the bogomips
[2:25] <GabrialDestruir> Something in XBMC has my CPU running at 100% -.-
[2:26] <DaQatz> !w

[2:27] <GabrialDestruir> I swear xbmc on the pi is so fickle, I have no clue how I'd go about adding in a webserver too...
[2:27] <shirro> GabrialDestruir: can you see what is using cpu?
[2:27] <GabrialDestruir> Top only shows that it's XBMC
[2:27] <GabrialDestruir> and as far as I know XBMC doesn't have an internal taskmanager type thing
[2:28] <sraue> GabrialDestruir, you are still using openelec?
[2:28] <zgreg> IMHO XBMC isn't really a good fit for the pi
[2:28] <GabrialDestruir> Yea...
[2:28] <zgreg> the UI is nice, but very resource intensive
[2:29] <GabrialDestruir> Yea that's the problem I'm coming across, it's resource intensive when it shouldn't be.
[2:29] <shirro> GabrialDestruir: The event loop is probably polling instead of sleeping or something. Or doing silly animations or something that don't make sense on a Pi
[2:29] <sraue> you can try to switch off the RSS ticker, then paste your xbmc.log with "paste /storage/.xbmc/temp/xbmc.log"
[2:30] <GabrialDestruir> I'm assuming it was either the skin I tried to install or the plugin that got installed with said skin.

[2:32] <GabrialDestruir> I'm gonna give RaspbMC Beta a try since it's well....
[2:32] <GabrialDestruir> not alpha xD
[2:33] <sraue> GabrialDestruir, you think raspbmc has solved this problems? its the same xbmc openelec uses on top of debian... and xbmc for raspberrypi is very alpha
[2:34] <shirro> I think they called it Beta because you just got yourself a clock when you actually wanted a media player
[2:34] <GabrialDestruir> Won't know til I try though, right?
[2:35] * zgreg remembers being shouted down for saying raspberry pi isn't actually so great for XBMC
[2:36] <sraue> GabrialDestruir, can you paste your xbmc.log with "paste /storage/.xbmc/temp/xbmc.log" ?
[2:36] * plugwash thinks a lot of people got inflated expectations of the Pi and the foundation did nothing to bring them down to reality
[2:36] <GabrialDestruir> XBMC isn't all that great for Pi I'd think, it seems to be inefficient when it comes to the pi.
[2:36] <GabrialDestruir> Sure.
[2:36] <shirro> zgreg: it is surprising good at playing video.
[2:36] <GabrialDestruir> After I'm done making my backup.
[2:36] <GabrialDestruir> It actually plays video really great.
[2:36] <GabrialDestruir> As long as that's all you want.
[2:37] <zgreg> yeah, no surprise here
[2:37] <GabrialDestruir> It does the menus too really great if you're not playing videos
[2:37] <zgreg> but XBMC is simply too bloated, especially if you want all that extra crap you can do
[2:37] <DaQatz> plugwash, Seems a lot of people have absurdly high or absurdly low expectations of what the pi can do.
[2:37] <sraue> the problem with xbmc is it redraws the complete gui, so there is much more cpu usage then while playing a video
[2:38] <zgreg> by the way, I wonder if video with (text) subtitles plays well
[2:38] <zgreg> rendering subtitles can be somewhat taxing
[2:38] <GabrialDestruir> It plays with subtitles fine.
[2:38] <SpeedEvil> Has anyone done DAB radio on linux?
[2:38] <GabrialDestruir> I've been using the hulu plugin to watch anime, and some of the animes don't have hardcoded subs.
[2:38] <shirro> zgreg: I assume they use dispmanx to mix a couple of layers.
[2:38] <SpeedEvil> If so - with what hardware
[2:38] <sraue> zgreg, this works well, the problem is redrawing the gui and the whole thumpnails/fanart stuff
[2:39] <GabrialDestruir> It works great, but again it's only if watch the video is all you want.

[3:41] <jaredforshey> raspmc: for airplay, sam says to run "sudo apt-get -y install avahi-client", but when I look in the apt-cache there's nothing called avahi-client. There are similar ones, like libavahi-client. Anyone know if that's right?
[3:41] <ShiftPlusOne> should be... no harm in trying
[3:42] <GabrialDestruir> Hmm.
[3:42] <GabrialDestruir> This version seems a bit resource hoggish.
[3:43] <GabrialDestruir> 95% resources to xbmc even when it's doing nothing on the main menu

[3:54] <SStrife> people are stuck in a desktop-pc frame of mind, developing stuff for raspi

[3:54] * wej (~j@ has joined #raspberrypi
[3:54] * PiBot sets mode +v wej
[3:55] <GabrialDestruir> Personally I want something a bit desktopish.
[3:55] <GabrialDestruir> More like raspbmc than openelec, something a bit more customizable.
[3:55] <SStrife> experience-wise, yeah, sure
[3:55] <SStrife> but writing for a low-cpu, low-ram environment
[3:56] <SStrife> brb
[3:56] <sraue> openelec is much more customizable, but at buildtime... at runtime it should work
[3:57] <jaredforshey> looks like perhaps avahi-daemon is actually what needs installed
[3:57] <GabrialDestruir> Unless I'm missing something vital, OpenElec is a lot more closed off than raspbmc at least /system wise.
[3:58] <sraue> no its more open
[3:58] <ShiftPlusOne> GabrialDestruir, more packaged than closed off.
[3:59] <ShiftPlusOne> sraue, it's not customizable if you're a beginner. There's no documentation explaining the build proccess that I have seen anywhere.
[3:59] * trevorman (~tman@unaffiliated/trevorman) has joined #raspberrypi
[3:59] * PiBot sets mode +v trevorman
[3:59] <GabrialDestruir> The only real instructions I've seen are the "OpenElec meets Rpi" ones which basically say "This is how you type make to build"

[4:00] * SStrife_ is now known as SStrife
[4:00] <GabrialDestruir> Well that and proper disk formatting.
[4:00] <ShiftPlusOne> bootc, are you around?
[4:01] <sraue> ShiftPlusOne, the system at runtime should run, thats how openelec is designed, at buildtime you can change very much
[4:01] <ShiftPlusOne> I have no problem with the end result and the build proccess... just the documentation that's lacking.
[4:01] <GabrialDestruir> The fact it's packaged mean it's less customizable for those of us who don't want to build our own.
[4:02] <sraue> and if you read the both articles: xbmc is not stable, thats why we dont release any "stable" builds, and both articles was written before i had the chance to put my hands on a RPi
[4:02] <sraue> so we had a working build before we have ever seen a raspi
[4:03] <ShiftPlusOne> the articles are great as well.... compiled the first time without any issues.
[4:03] <ShiftPlusOne> we're just saying if you want to add drivers, change the init script or anything like that, it's hard to figure out where to look.
[4:03] <sraue> and i cant do support if i provide ready builds without having the hardware, thats why i forced the users to be less lazy and compile byself
[4:05] <sraue> our latest builds includes a small script to create a SDcard with a single command

[4:05] <sraue> and its done in 30sec...
[4:05] <anish> oh wow, busy channel
[4:05] <anish> question : does the pi need a keyboard to be connected to boot ?
[4:05] <ShiftPlusOne> anish, not at all
[4:05] <shirro> anish: no
[4:05] <GabrialDestruir> No
[4:05] * PiBot sets mode +v anish
[4:06] <anish> hrm, some other booting issue then
[4:06] <GabrialDestruir> But depending on build and such, if one isn't there it might not recognize it later.
[4:06] <anish> that's fine, i'm still trying to get it to boot
[4:06] <ShiftPlusOne> anish, anything on the screen?
[4:06] <anish> nope
[4:06] <anish> blank
[4:06] <anish> but all the blinkenlighten are on
[4:07] <shirro> hdmi video?
[4:07] <anish> yeah
[4:07] <ShiftPlusOne> then you can narrow it down to quite a bit
[4:07] <shirro> was hdmi plugged in when you powered up?
[4:07] <anish> yeah
[4:07] <ShiftPlusOne> if all the blinkenlighten are on, then the kernel is fine and the problem is between the pi and the monitor. have you tried ssh?
[4:07] <GabrialDestruir> Was the tv on?
[4:08] <anish> yeah
[4:08] <anish> I haven't tried ssh, I'll do that now
[4:08] <anish> got a new card in the meantime, getting that up and running
[4:08] <shirro> because it does do hdmi detection to select video output which is why I asked. what distro? ssh is disabled on debian by default
[4:08] <anish> archlinux
[4:09] <shirro> ok, I am out of here then
[4:09] <anish> heh
[4:09] <anish> is debian more reliable ?
[4:09] <ShiftPlusOne> no, debian is not more reliable
[4:09] <shirro> no, I just don't know anything about arch
[4:09] <ShiftPlusOne> or less reliable

[4:49] <ShiftPlusOne> why not?
[4:50] <jamesglanville> they're very expensive, my prusa2 cost <??200 and beats the parts off a makerbot, even if you buy a full kit it's half the price, plus makerbot claims "open source" but isn't
[4:51] <ShiftPlusOne> fair enough, I thought you were talking about reliability and the level of fine tuning required.
[4:51] <jamesglanville> ShiftPlusOne: I haven't tweaked my prusa much at all in 1000hrs and 1km of filament printed, I hear makerbots aren't any better, and it took maybe a couple of hours to calibrate
[4:52] <ShiftPlusOne> on that case, would an ide cable fit over the gpio pins?
[4:52] <jamesglanville> ShiftPlusOne: not sure, but I'd happily sell any modifications to make it so it fits
[4:53] <jamesglanville> ShiftPlusOne: looking at the picture on ebay of my (sold) r-pi, it might be a tight fit, so i'd probably sell a lid with a thinner lip

[4:58] <jamesglanville> ShiftPlusOne: anything like that, you ask and i'll sell you one with easy mods like that for free
[4:58] <jamesglanville> i mean, no extra cost obviously, as opposed to free case :P
[4:58] <ShiftPlusOne> lol
[4:59] <ShiftPlusOne> does the pi slide around side to side or up and down in that case?
[5:00] <jamesglanville> ShiftPlusOne: it sits in grooves on every side, no wobble

[5:48] <BugStalk> um.... a Raspberry Pi
[5:49] <jardiamj> I'm setting up openBox on Debian Wheezy right now
[5:50] <BugStalk> I got Lynx loaded on the lightweight version now.... browsing in 3D text
[5:50] <GabrialDestruir> lol... my Pi works
[5:50] <BugStalk> The Pi I never doubted..... it was my debian skills that are rusty
[5:51] <wasmith> BugStalk: yeah, mine worked just fine
[5:51] <wasmith> dd'ed the image to the SD card
[5:51] <wasmith> bunged it in
[5:51] <wasmith> booted up
[5:51] <wasmith> and was away
[5:51] <BugStalk> I made the mistake of reading the wiki
[5:51] <wasmith> heh
[5:51] <wasmith> if you know how to use linux
[5:51] <wasmith> you're fine
[5:52] <BugStalk> I must have found 15 new ways to format an SD card.... none of which were necessary
[5:52] <wasmith> lol
[5:52] <jardiamj> lol
[5:52] <wasmith> yeah, dd does all that for you
[5:53] <BugStalk> yea, the only thing I ever really used dd for in the past was wiping hard drives with null
[5:53] <jardiamj> any one recommends a good file manager to install on openBox?

[5:54] <BugStalk> Don't ask me - I'm a yast/RPM (Suse user)

[5:54] <wasmith> ummm
[5:54] <jardiamj> which one wasmith?

[5:55] <BugStalk> aptitude?
[5:55] <BugStalk> or is that only text based?
[5:55] <wasmith> aptitude is a package manager :p
[5:55] <jardiamj> synaptic is the GUI I believe
[5:55] <BugStalk> My bad... I thought thats what he was asking
[5:57] <SStrife> i reckon /dev/urandom is better for wiping HDDs
[5:57] <wasmith> i think its thunar

[6:21] <BugStalk> I tried to run a USB dvd player - it wouldn't even boot with the dvd player plugged in... kept power cycling. I thought there was a standard as to how much voltage and current a USB was supposed to handle.

[6:34] <trevorman> BugStalk: you need a powered hub if your devices need more than about 140mA
[6:34] <anish> i'm curious if using one of those 1A+ power supplies would solve that
[6:34] <trevorman> no
[6:35] <BugStalk> Thanks trev - kind of figured that one out very early on
[6:35] <trevorman> the USB socket power has a polyfuse on it
[6:35] <trevorman> and the input power to the RPi has another polyfuse
[6:35] <BugStalk> I don't think so anish. I think there are physical limitations on the output of the USB itself
[6:36] <anish> ~500mA iirc ? I could be wrong
[6:36] <trevorman> the polyfuse won't let you draw 500ma
[6:36] <BugStalk> trev - do you know the rating on that fuse?
[6:36] <BugStalk> (curious)
[6:36] <trevorman> 140mA
[6:36] <trevorman> per port
[6:36] <GabrialDestruir> So basically to run anything that actually needs 500mA
[6:37] <BugStalk> There it is
[6:37] <GabrialDestruir> You need a hub.
[6:37] <trevorman> yes
[6:37] <trevorman> the power input to the RPi has a 1.1A fuse
[6:37] <BugStalk> That is all cleared up now
[6:38] <BugStalk> Yes, but there is a big difference between 1.1 Amps and .14 Amps (140mA)
[6:38] <GabrialDestruir> Sighs.
[6:39] <GabrialDestruir> I've got this great media center
[6:39] <BugStalk> If the output of the USB is fused at .14 - then that the max you can put out from it
[6:39] <GabrialDestruir> and nothing to watch.
[6:39] <trevorman> BugStalk: I know
[6:39] <trevorman> I'm just saying that the input has a 1.1mA polyfuse
[6:39] <trevorman> 1.1A
[6:39] <Eigen> man
[6:39] <trevorman> so even if you plugged the RPi into a 10A 5V PSU then you can't get 500mA out of both the USB ports
[6:39] <BugStalk> exactly
[6:40] <Eigen> anyone has a e350 amd picoitx board?
[6:40] <Eigen> *does anyone have
[6:40] <trevorman> the polyfuse on the power input would stop you and even if you bypassed that, the polyfuses on the USB ports would stop you.

[7:17] <GabrialDestruir> Honestly I just got it cause I thought it'd be a nice inexpensive replacement to using my desktop as a Media Center and it'd allow my to screw around with it.
[7:17] <SStrife> but, for instance, repartitioning the sd card, it's so much easier with gparted
[7:18] <GabrialDestruir> Also if you want to do anything with the second or third or w/e partition
[7:18] <GabrialDestruir> Windows can see them
[7:18] <GabrialDestruir> can't*
[7:18] <SStrife> that too
[7:18] <ShiftPlusOne> SStrife, surely there is a gparted equivilent for macs?
[7:19] <SStrife> i'm sure there is
[7:19] <SStrife> but the faster solution was to burn off gparted to a cdrw, and use that
[7:19] <GabrialDestruir> Hmmm.... I just realized if I want to obtain a lot of High Def shows...
[7:19] <SStrife> Mac has great tools for maniuplating HFS+ partitions
[7:19] <GabrialDestruir> I'm gonna need to invest in a new hard drive.

[7:20] <ShiftPlusOne> SStrife, http://alternativeto.net/software/gparted/?platform=mac
[7:21] <GabrialDestruir> Will do.
[7:22] <ShiftPlusOne> the gui felt good enough as it is to me
[7:22] <GabrialDestruir> The only issue I really have with the GUI is if you try to use it during playback it all goes to shit.
[7:22] <GabrialDestruir> er
[7:22] <GabrialDestruir> crap
[7:23] <SStrife> the only alternative, stellar, only works with HFS+ partitions anyway, may as well use diskutil :)
[7:24] <ShiftPlusOne> ah... that's odd, there's always virtual machines and the gparted livecd
[7:24] <SStrife> i thought that
[7:24] <SStrife> Parallels wont mount the SD card in the VM
[7:25] <SStrife> maybe another VM package will, i havent tried that

[7:25] <GabrialDestruir> Ubuntu
[7:25] <GabrialDestruir> Problem solved.
[7:25] <SStrife> I have ubuntu in parallels, but yea, like i said, maybe another vm package

[7:34] <SStrife> one and the same, GabrialDestruir :P
[7:34] <SStrife> higher bitrate should give better picture quality,
[7:35] <SStrife> "worse" compression
[7:35] <SStrife> i.e. a worse ratio

[7:35] <SStrife> a poor quality encoder will produce the same size file, for a given bitrate

[8:44] <jardiamj> it's a Google TV

[9:02] <ShiftPlusOne> I threw out my tub of cables

[9:02] <ShiftPlusOne> since they were mostly 'just in case' and that case never happened.
[9:02] <GabrialDestruir> I can put them all in untangled, yet when I go back to the tub months later it's trashed.

[9:09] <GabrialDestruir> the foundation
[9:09] <GabrialDestruir> which told farnell and RS as much
[9:09] <dipstick> they was expecting like 10k
[9:10] <GabrialDestruir> The foundation had a notification list which supposedly had close to 100k the first batch was only 10k cause that's how many they had made before hand.
[9:10] <dipstick> I wonder if the pi's are going out in sequential order of the s/n
[9:11] <ShiftPlusOne> GabrialDestruir, because mortgaging your house can only give you so much funding

[9:42] <GabrialDestruir> I don't think ISPs are pushing the issue, it's the "seeding" that gets you in trouble.
[9:42] <Orb> well, i hate to be a leech but i disconnect after download.
[9:43] <Orb> and also, you should run an IP blocker list.
[9:43] <Orb> and also, well, if you happen to be on the neighbor's wireless, it can't hurt.

[9:43] <ShiftPlusOne> GabrialDestruir, ISPs aren't required to give any info without a court order
[9:44] <GabrialDestruir> Currently...
[9:44] <ShiftPlusOne> yet they do... they are compliant with the whole thing
[9:44] <GabrialDestruir> With CISPA in the works that might not be the case anymore.
[9:44] <ShiftPlusOne> apart from my ISP... which was taken to court
[9:44] <ShiftPlusOne> and won
[9:44] <GabrialDestruir> CISPA basically says the 4th amendment doesn't exist online.
[9:45] <GabrialDestruir> and the government can do whatever they want.
[9:45] <Orb> ISPs should not be made to suffer because movie makers are crying.

[9:54] <ShiftPlusOne> GabrialDestruir, this magic contraption is called an ide cable with one end cut off
[9:54] <anish> hahaha
[9:54] <GabrialDestruir> Right! One of those >.>
[9:55] <gordonDrogon> I thought a floppy cable was the prefered one ...
[9:55] <ShiftPlusOne> using it right now for the serial
[9:55] <GabrialDestruir> Actually I was thinking I'm gonna have this gap where the GPIO pins are thats opened up on the end where the SD and power is.
[9:55] <GabrialDestruir> and was trying to figure out how it'd be best to access those.
[9:56] <ShiftPlusOne> what's the plan for the falcon 9 flight anyway? just a test or is it actually going to dock and everything?
[9:56] <gordonDrogon> it won't dock, but will be "grabbed"
[9:56] <gordonDrogon> and be docked via the arm.
[9:57] <ShiftPlusOne> can it even dock or is it just for sattelites and such?
[9:57] <gordonDrogon> not sure why they're not letting it dock, but there you go.
[9:57] <gordonDrogon> I think it can dock, they're just not letting it dock directly, but using the arm to dock it.
[9:58] <gordonDrogon> so it will get to a distance of 10m and if it's stable, then the arm will grab it and bring it in.

[10:00] <GabrialDestruir> Why is this going on at 1am in the morning? o.O
[10:00] <gordonDrogon> Heh... not heard anything from RS or Farnell this week...
[10:01] <gordonDrogon> RS gave me the 3 week delivery time last week and Farnell is supposed to be shipping this week...
[10:01] <gordonDrogon> I might have 3 by the end of the week :-|

[11:45] <gurgalof> even if i shorted the 140mA ones the 700mA still protects everything...
[11:45] <gurgalof> so they are kindof useless
[11:46] <dmsuse> they are to try and stop u frying the board arnt they
[11:46] <GabrialDestruir> I really liked the idea of of a protoboard plater/shield type thing.
[11:46] <gordonDrogon> ShiftPlusOne, I started with a floppy cable - I carefully separated the wires and soldered a pin onto them with some heat shring - it worked for a demo or two initially...
[11:46] <gurgalof> the tracks should be able to handle more than enough
[11:46] <gordonDrogon> I now use some female to male jumper wires to a breadboard.
[11:47] <ShiftPlusOne> gordonDrogon, what are you actually using the gpio pins for though?
[11:47] <gurgalof> luckily I'm used to do SMD stuff...
[11:47] <gordonDrogon> ShiftPlusOne, oh just playing for now - LEDs and switches. going to hook up a SHT15 sensor now though.
[11:48] <gurgalof> like solder 3x3mm qfns...
[11:48] <gordonDrogon> ShiftPlusOne, http://www.nasa.gov/multimedia/nasatv/index.html
[11:48] <dmsuse> gordonDrogon: any chance u could take pics of how you wired it once you do each thing?
[11:48] <gordonDrogon> doh! I hate that copy & paste )-:
[11:48] <gordonDrogon> ShiftPlusOne, http://unicorn.drogon.net/15leds.jpg
[11:48] <GabrialDestruir> http://www.adafruit.com/blog/2012/04/26/announcing-the-adafruit-prototyping-pi-plate-kit-for-raspberry-pi/
[11:48] <GabrialDestruir> That right there.
[11:49] <gordonDrogon> I never did work out why X has 2 copy&paste buffers...
[11:49] <gordonDrogon> That's nice - if you like to solder up projects, so a bit limiting.
[11:49] <ShiftPlusOne> gordonDrogon, still looks like there is a risk of shorting.
[11:49] <gordonDrogon> ShiftPlusOne, yes there is. But no more than doing the same on arduinos, etc. you just need to take care.
[11:50] <GabrialDestruir> It's suppose to be able to function like a regular bread board.
[11:50] <GabrialDestruir> Just snapped into place.
[11:51] <ShiftPlusOne> not really 'like a breadboard' though.... like a prototyping area
[11:51] <Gadgetoid_mbp> Hmmm, prototyping plate no good for me??? I need a ribbon-connected breakout board which will protect the Pi and let me hook it to breadboard spaghetti messes
[11:52] <Gadgetoid_mbp> It's a nice little thing, though, a "shield" for the PI :D
[11:52] <ShiftPlusOne> Gadgetoid_mbp, you're not one of those crazy people who trims each wire to the perfect length and has perfect vertical alignment on a breadboard?
[11:53] <Gadgetoid_mbp> ShiftPlusOne: sadly not, my LED clock is a spaghetti mess, although I lined up all the bits the resistors aren't trimmed and are bent all over the place
[11:53] <dmsuse> led clock on the pi ?
[11:53] <ShiftPlusOne> yeah, I end up like that as well
[11:53] <ShiftPlusOne> hell, I start up like that.
[11:53] <Gadgetoid_mbp> ShiftPlusOne: actually it's not too bad: http://www.gadgetoid.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/DSC00884.jpg?9d7bd4
[11:53] <GabrialDestruir> The only thing I'm afraid of is that I'd use the bread board and unwittingly fry my Pi
[11:54] <Gadgetoid_mbp> GabrialDestruir: I have zero experience with electronics and I haven't fried my Pi yet
[11:54] <Gadgetoid_mbp> DId accidentally reboot it once, but no frying
[11:54] <gordonDrogon> Gadgetoid_mbp, neat!
[11:54] <dmsuse> whats the cheapest way to protect against frying?
[11:55] <Gadgetoid_mbp> dmsuse: big-ass resistors
[11:55] <Gadgetoid_mbp> But even then you could potentially fail
[11:55] * phantoxe (~destroy@a95-92-89-24.cpe.netcabo.pt) has joined #raspberrypi
[11:55] <ShiftPlusOne> GabrialDestruir, that's a reasonable fear... I checked the 3 connections I needed to make 20 times from different sources, just to be sure it wasn't going to fry.
[11:55] * PiBot sets mode +v phantoxe
[11:55] <gordonDrogon> With regard to frying Pi... I have accidentally shorted 3.3v to ground once or twice. Also shorted GPIO pins to ground once or twice. Gotten away with it so-far...
[11:55] <Gadgetoid_mbp> For now you could break all your important pins out to a small breadboard with resistors, and only hook up your projects via that
[11:55] <gordonDrogon> I think the worst will be connecting the +5V to 3.3 or to any GPIO pin.
[11:55] <Gadgetoid_mbp> Or you could use a shift register, I think that would offer some protection
[11:55] <ShiftPlusOne> Gadgetoid_mbp, what's that you've got going on for the case? laser cut it yourself or what?
[11:55] <gordonDrogon> So don't connect up the +5v pin, or even better, snip it off...
[11:56] <Gadgetoid_mbp> ShiftPlusOne: Nah, got it from SKPang on gordonDrogon's recommendation
[11:56] <gordonDrogon> ShiftPlusOne, think he's got the same as me..
[11:56] <gordonDrogon> yay :)
[11:56] <ShiftPlusOne> does it slide around?
[11:56] <Gadgetoid_mbp> It's easy to get a little bit of wire coating and stick it over the +5v pin
[11:56] <gordonDrogon> Gadgetoid_mbp, good plan, or heat shrink..
[11:56] <dmsuse> so cover the +5v and u cant do any damage?
[11:56] <Gadgetoid_mbp> ShiftPlusOne: it has feet that help somewhat, but they're little plastic nubs and not rubberised enough??? easy to replace though
[11:57] <gordonDrogon> dmsuse, well - you lower the risk of damage....
[11:57] <ShiftPlusOne> nuh I meant the actual pi within the case
[11:57] <Gadgetoid_mbp> dmsuse: wiring +3.3v to any GPIO pin will still ruin your day :D
[11:57] <dmsuse> ok
[11:57] <dmsuse> im going to fry my board within hours of owning it i fear :(
[11:57] <gordonDrogon> ShiftPlusOne, if you look at this image: http://www.skpang.co.uk/catalog/images/raspberrypi/pi_dev.jpg
[11:57] <Gadgetoid_mbp> dmsuse: I had the same fear, it was unfounded
[11:57] <Gadgetoid_mbp> And I wired a freakin' megadrive controller up to my 3.3v pin and then to my Pi
[11:57] <gordonDrogon> ShiftPlusOne, then you see that the supports have grooves cut in them for the board.
[11:58] <ShiftPlusOne> ah, nice
[11:58] <gordonDrogon> the board is quite firmly held. however the only down-side is that it's impossible to use the compost output with the breadboard in-place )-:
[11:58] <ShiftPlusOne> I am getting one of james glanville's reprapped ones
[11:58] <Gadgetoid_mbp> gordonDrogon: I find the SD card a little tricky to get to, also
[11:59] <GabrialDestruir> Couldn't you put in some sort of short protection or surge protect between the pi and the board.... if you screw up that blows instead of the pi?
[11:59] <gordonDrogon> Gadgetoid_mbp, not the blue tape on mine :) http://unicorn.drogon.net/15leds.jpg
[11:59] <ShiftPlusOne> looks like a floppy cable wouldn't fit over the gpio either
[11:59] <Gadgetoid_mbp> gordonDrogon: you genius!
[11:59] <Gadgetoid_mbp> I didn't realise what that was for before, it makes perfect sense
[12:00] <gordonDrogon> :-)
[12:00] <tzarc> I see 16 LED's on
[12:00] <tzarc> can't you count?
[12:00] * tzarc grins
[12:00] <gordonDrogon> er, well.... 15 on the breadboard, one power, one "OK", and 3 ethernet ...
[12:00] <tzarc> actually it's probably 17
[12:00] <ShiftPlusOne> who said they had to be on... clearly there are more.
[12:00] <tzarc> ya
[12:00] <tzarc> can't make it out
[12:00] <tzarc> lol
[12:01] <Gadgetoid_mbp> Daisy-chain shift registers and you can have as many LEDs as you want :D
[12:01] <tzarc> if only D3 hadn't come out, I might've been playing with pi
[12:01] <gordonDrogon> the green LEDs are invisible under the red cover...
[12:01] <tzarc> charlieplexing
[12:01] <dmsuse> is it easy to fry an arduino board?
[12:01] <gordonDrogon> charlieplexing is going to be somewhat creative on the Pi as you'll never guarantee the speed of the software loop to keep them at an even brightness...
[12:02] <des2> Just get the one with the socket chip.
[12:02] <gordonDrogon> dmsuse, I've not fried one yet ...
[12:02] <Gadgetoid_mbp> dmsuse: it's pretty easy to fry anything if you know what you're doing :D
[12:02] <dmsuse> thats true :P
[12:02] <tzarc> yeah, true
[12:02] <Gadgetoid_mbp> It's harder to accidentally touch a pin on the Arduino, as they're female
[12:02] <gordonDrogon> yes - I saw a video on the register for a "secure" SSD device with a green and red button - the green button erases the chips, the red button causes them to smoke - I suspect by simply reversing the power...
[12:03] <tzarc> if your timing on the simulated PWM is large enough you could probably do it though
[12:03] <GabrialDestruir> Eh...
[12:03] <tzarc> it runs at 800MHz, you only need to show ~30Hz
[12:03] <GabrialDestruir> I wouldn't trust my data to frying....
[12:03] <GabrialDestruir> I think I'd still want a thermite security system
[12:04] <gordonDrogon> might give it a go just for proof of concept, but I've noticed pauses when running othe programs - e.g. displaying animation - it's not as smooth as it could be.
[12:04] <tzarc> *nod*
[12:04] <tzarc> I've been running mine headless anyway, so it probably wouldn't be much of an issue
[12:04] <tzarc> if I can be bothered looking at it :P
[12:05] <tzarc> doing anything during the week is hard, stupid work
[12:05] <GabrialDestruir> Just rig a Pi to a batch of thermite over the harddrives, if you need to "secure" your data.
[12:05] <gurgalof> can you connect a screen to the pi? w00t
[12:05] <gordonDrogon> but with Linux - you can't guarantee scheduling...
[12:05] <GabrialDestruir> You pop in a command and FRY
[12:05] <GabrialDestruir> literally

[12:05] * gurgalof like running headless
[12:05] * TestingTesting12 (~des@ip54544442.adsl-surfen.hetnet.nl) has left #raspberrypi
[12:06] <gordonDrogon> of-course... the one thing no-ones actually said about GPIO interfacing is that you really should power-down the Pi/Arduino before changing connections ... ;-)
[12:06] <Gadgetoid_mbp> gordonDrogon: haha, you're a funny guy!
[12:07] <gordonDrogon> however I know there's a difference between "best practice" and "real life" ...
[12:07] <Gadgetoid_mbp> True, that
[12:07] <ShiftPlusOne> gordonDrogon, why do you need to do that?
[12:08] <dmsuse> isnt it possible to switch them off in software?
[12:08] <Gadgetoid_mbp> The difference between the Pi and Arduino, though, is that the Arduino is unlikely to be in the middle of compiling Ruby whilst you're hacking about on it :D
[12:08] <Gadgetoid_mbp> dmsuse: not the +5v or +3.3v afaik
[12:08] <dmsuse> ok
[12:09] <gordonDrogon> you can tri-state the pins, but that won't stop you connecting 5v to 3.3, etc. and I'm, not sure what will happen if you connect 5v to a ti-stated pin...
[12:09] <Gadgetoid_mbp> Disconnecting the PI's power basically makes accidentally shorting it impossible
[12:09] <Gadgetoid_mbp> Unless you don't double check your connections and power it on with a short in-place :D
[12:09] <GabrialDestruir> Except if you plug it in and you still have the short in place
[12:09] <GabrialDestruir> xD
[12:09] <gordonDrogon> the down-side is that you shouldn't just remove power - you should issue the halt/init 0/shutdown command and wait for it to shutdown - it's not like an arduino where you can just pull the plug...
[12:10] <GabrialDestruir> I pull the plug on my Pi...
[12:10] <GabrialDestruir> a lot =\
[12:10] <gurgalof> why does everyone love the arduino?
[12:10] <Gadgetoid_mbp> gordonDrogon: could probably throw together a linux distro that does little enough to make pulling the plug all but harmless
[12:10] <gurgalof> i can't understand that
[12:10] <gordonDrogon> Gadgetoid_mbp, it's just the file-system that's the critical part.
[12:10] <Gadgetoid_mbp> gurgalof: cos it causes people to gravitate around the enjoyment of hacking about with electronics
[12:11] <GabrialDestruir> I still want to to create a "Shutdown" where I can swap cards and have it boot the new card.
[12:11] <gordonDrogon> The arduino is accessible. And cheap.
[12:11] <Gadgetoid_mbp> Whereas a bare micro-controller or IC really doesn't have any charm or community about it
[12:11] * Laogeodritt (~Laogeodri@wikipedia/Laogeodritt) Quit (Ping timeout: 248 seconds)
[12:11] <gurgalof> i am hacking around with electronics just fine withou the arduino
[12:12] <gordonDrogon> GabrialDestruir, there is a card present pin on the SD socket which can be read, so it might be possible to hack the kernel to halt, then not really halt but look at the pin, and reboot the board when a new card is inserted...

[12:13] <gordonDrogon> arduino has been about for 4 or 5 years now too. It has a huge following. I was somewhat surprised at people whinging about my "wiring" library for the Pi, but I guess they've never used Arduinos before...
[12:13] <gordonDrogon> I think I'd still use an Arduino for proper control of things and the Pi as a sort of overall controller...
[12:14] <gordonDrogon> which is what I'm doing for the weather station I'm building. The Arduino has the sensors, etc. and talks wirelessly to the Pi.

[12:24] <GabrialDestruir> But I have to admit something similar to a "vortex manipulator" like Jack Harkness has would be awesome xD
[12:24] <gordonDrogon> so this: http://unicorn.drogon.net/piduino.jpg is a Pi talking to an arduino and the Pi is displaying information based on the Arduinos inputs, etc.
[12:24] <dmsuse> i can draw pretty pictures in paint i dont have to learn a dead language made by a retarded company to do it :P
[12:25] <gordonDrogon> BASIC wasn't written by a retarded company.
[12:25] <Gadgetoid_mbp> gordonDrogon: Your gpio.c got me started rewriting my binary clock in C :D
[12:25] <gordonDrogon> Gadgetoid_mbp, excellent :) Want to write it in BASIC next?
[12:26] <Gadgetoid_mbp> gordonDrogon: might be worth a punt, can't hurt to have examples in as many languages as possible for some cross-learning??? I'm going to try it in assembly too when I've worked up the courage
[12:27] <Cheery> hi
[12:27] <gordonDrogon> BASIC was designed in the early 60's by Dartmouth college, US as a means to introduce students to FORTRAN. It was subsequently revived in the 70's when microprocessor systems came online. Like it or not there are still millions of programs written in BASIC - or possible the dialect called "Visual"... That's probably the retarded company you're referring to :)
[12:28] <Cheery> I feel like losing faith that I get my programming environment done.. :/
[12:28] <gordonDrogon> I wrote my own BASIC interpreter a few months ago because it was something I wanted to do.
[12:28] <dmsuse> hehe k :p

[13:07] <GabrialDestruir> I was hoping for another method. lol
[13:08] <GabrialDestruir> and apparently uTorrents "Relocate" is broken.
[13:08] <Cheery> but then.. maybe I better just do something and see how it performs in real use
[13:08] <Cheery> and should get the motivation to do so.

[13:09] <GabrialDestruir> But it's taking the folder I relocate to and adding \Torrent Name\ to it
[13:09] <GabrialDestruir> so it doesn't find the files.

[13:28] <Gadgetoid_mbp> I wonder if GPIO access using registers in assembly requires root
[13:28] <gordonDrogon> yes
[13:28] <gordonDrogon> if you use the mmap method then you need to be root.
[13:29] <Cheery> gordonDrogon: some 24 years and you may have forgotten how to do it
[13:29] <Davespice> Hexxeh: are you about?
[13:29] <Gadgetoid_mbp> Isn't mmap a bit of memory space offered by the GPIO driver to make passing commands to GPIO easier?
[13:29] <gordonDrogon> Cheery, yea and I never thought to take a copy of all my code from back then, so it's all probably lost...
[13:30] <Gadgetoid_mbp> Dunno what registers you can get away with reading/writing in userspace though :D
[13:30] <gordonDrogon> Gadgetoid_mbp, not quite...

[13:30] <Gadgetoid_mbp> D'oh!
[13:31] <gordonDrogon> What I want to do if/when I get time (and no-one else has done it) is to write a device driver that allows GPIO access from userland.
[13:31] <gordonDrogon> I understand that some frown upon this, however I feel it needs to be done.
[13:31] <Cheery> gordonDrogon: done already
[13:31] <Cheery> ?
[13:31] <gordonDrogon> Cheery, oh? Where?
[13:31] <Gadgetoid_mbp> ohrly?
[13:31] <Cheery> I thought there's couple instructions to access GPIO from userland.
[13:32] <gordonDrogon> you can access the /sys/class/gpio from userland, but I'm pretty sure it needs root access to enable the pins in the first place.
[13:32] <gordonDrogon> --w------- 1 root root 4096 May 22 12:31 /sys/class/gpio/export
[13:33] <Gadgetoid_mbp> Hmm, I wonder if I could break much by writing values to these GPIO control registers
[13:33] <gordonDrogon> my idea is to have a /dev/gpio which you can open and write bytes to to command the GPIO pins and profide a mmap interface that you can use from userland.
[13:34] <RaYmAn> that sounds...bad :P
[13:34] <gordonDrogon> is it?
[13:34] <RaYmAn> yes.
[13:34] <gordonDrogon> why?
[13:34] <RaYmAn> provider non-root access to memory mapped registers essentially?
[13:34] <Gadgetoid_mbp> It's only bad if people continue to think of the Pi as a desktop frikkin' computer :D
[13:34] <gordonDrogon> yes
[13:34] <gordonDrogon> people will connect stuff to GPIO.
[13:34] <gordonDrogon> we can not get away from that fact. They are doing it already.
[13:34] <RaYmAn> You'd be better off having a small script that exports all gpio's through sysfs, then change permissions so they are accessible by some group
[13:34] <gordonDrogon> I want to protect them from themselves by not having to run stuff as root all the time.
[13:35] <Gadgetoid_mbp> Eee??? script???.
[13:35] <Cheery> chmod +xrw ?
[13:35] <Cheery> well

[13:35] <RaYmAn> Gadgetoid_mbp: certainly a lot better than adding a whole new interface... :P
[13:35] <gordonDrogon> another plan which SImon- suggested yesterday which I am thinking of is providing a daemon that listens to a socket...
[13:36] <Gadgetoid_mbp> The trouble is that if you use a library like wiringPi and include it into your C application, you can't not then run that as root surely?
[13:36] <gordonDrogon> wiringPi needs to be run as root )-:
[13:36] <RaYmAn> Gadgetoid_mbp: hence the chown/chmod.
[13:36] <Gadgetoid_mbp> I don't have an issue with running it as root, anyway, but I'm always eager to type less "simon says"
[13:36] <gordonDrogon> :)
[13:37] <Gadgetoid_mbp> I might just as well change ! in vim to prefix everything with sudo as standard :D
[13:38] <RaYmAn> The point is that adding a whole new, possibly(likely) entirely insecure interface is a bad idea :P
[13:38] <RaYmAn> better to stay with standard linux based interfaces given they are available
[13:38] <gordonDrogon> it depends on your view. I see lots and lots of arduino programmers coming over to the Pi side.

[13:39] <gordonDrogon> and if you give them a familiar interface (e.g. my wiringPi) then they'll adopt it sooner.
[13:39] <gordonDrogon> /dev/xx is a standard linux interface.
[13:39] <RaYmAn> how is that in any way related to the userspace->kenrelspace interface?
[13:39] <gordonDrogon> it's been used to control hardware forever.

[13:40] <RaYmAn> whether wiringPi access gpios through sysfs or dev is irrelevant to the arduino programmers, isn't it? :)
[13:41] <gordonDrogon> this is true to a point. some like bit-banging and I want to reduce the overhead of going via sysfs, etc.
[13:41] <gordonDrogon> e.g. right now I'm writing a bit-bang interface to the SHT15 sensor...
[13:41] <RaYmAn> is the overhead an actual problem or an imaginary problem? I only just got my Pi today.
[13:41] <Gadgetoid_mbp> RaYmAn: it's not so much a problem as a minor inconvenience
[13:42] <gordonDrogon> It may be imaginary - but I've been writing control stuff for over 30 years now - to me anything that's not directly connected to the hardare is overhead.
[13:42] <gordonDrogon> I have a nice C setuid program (gpio) to control stuff from userland, but it's oh so slow , and the overhead is huge...
[13:42] <Gadgetoid_mbp> I wouldn't even know how to use the sysfs method anyway :D
[13:43] <gordonDrogon> Gadgetoid_mbp, once setup, you are reading and writing files.
[13:43] <Gadgetoid_mbp> I'm willing to bet that wiringPi is an order of magnitude faster
[13:43] <Gadgetoid_mbp> If I could get a sysfs alternative up and running I'd bench 'em
[13:44] * oberling_ is now known as oberling
[13:44] <gordonDrogon> it probably will be.

[13:46] <RaYmAn> yup, something like that - and then combine it with .e.g chgrp gpio, chmod g+rw
[13:46] <RaYmAn> and then a new gpio group will be allowed to access it :)
[13:47] <gordonDrogon> not much different in practice to what a driver in /dev/ can do.
[13:47] <gordonDrogon> although you can arrange things to not need to be root in the first place.
[13:47] <RaYmAn> of course, except you're introducing a new interface by making a driver in /dev. Where as the /sys/class/gpio is standard across all linux systems with gpios
[13:48] <gordonDrogon> I hear you there, but this is a Raspberry Pi.

[15:13] <fALSO> meteosat "sends" the weather info
[15:13] <SpeedEvil> fALSO: Is that what you actually want to do - to go from RF and process all the bits yourself?
[15:13] <fALSO> encoded on some protocol
[15:13] <fALSO> ya speedevil
[15:13] <SpeedEvil> fALSO: Or a module that spits out a position for $20 or so
[15:13] <fALSO> well, try to learn :-)
[15:13] <ShiftPlusOne> I only know frequency and amplitude modulaltion.. that's all the elec eng I did at uni. But gnuradio requires all these extra steps which are hard to figure out without copying others.
[15:13] <SpeedEvil> The latter is about 6 orders of magnitude easier.
[15:13] <fALSO> i just played it with on windows yet
[15:14] <fALSO> SDR# is the prettiest :-)

[15:15] <dmsuse> ShiftPlusOne: change the resolution for the framebuffer
[15:15] <fALSO> everyone MUST BUY one of these
[15:15] <fALSO> because of the price it is:)
[15:15] <SpeedEvil> It's a 50bps datastream, broadcasting 300 byte packets, modulated by a 1.023MHz spreading code.
[15:15] <ShiftPlusOne> dmsuse, eithe config.txt or pass the parameters straight to the kernel... unless you mean something else?
[15:15] <SpeedEvil> Each satellite has its own 1023 element long spreading code.
[15:15] <fALSO> even in FM radio
[15:16] <fALSO> there is a lot of cool stuff

[16:27] <Gadgetoid_mbp> I wouldn't hold a grudge over anyone who wanted two Pi's, it's the natural order of things

[16:35] <nid0> no need to do it beforehand, takes 2 minutes to expand the partition
[16:35] <dmsuse> i have no other linux machine to do it on
[16:36] <dmsuse> can i do it on windows?
[16:36] <nid0> you dont need one
[16:36] <Gadgetoid_mbp> nid0: true, as long as you don't accidentally move it slightly to the right like I did :D haha
[16:36] <nid0> you can do it on the pi itself
[16:36] <dmsuse> but i cant do it while mounted...
[16:36] <nid0> sure you can
[16:36] <drazyl> you can resize the disk whilst the machine is booted
[16:36] <dmsuse> oh cool
[16:36] <astom> Gadgetoid_mbp: funny you!
[16:37] <Gadgetoid_mbp> astom: it's not humour, it's more or less fact!
[16:37] <astom> but really, aren't there any buffers in the middle?
[16:37] <chronic1> Any new reviews of the PI running XBMC?
[16:38] <Gadgetoid_mbp> I'm no authority, but I believe the Pi will happily try to supply more current than it should, and the tiny little circuit traces between the pins and the SoC will vaporise if you're unlucky enough for an efuse not to trip

[16:38] <astom> hehe, looks like im gonna have tu buy some optocouplers
[16:38] <IT_Sean> yah, pulling more than 50mA from the GPIO can kill the pi, astom
[16:39] <Gadgetoid_mbp> astom: yeah, that's about as isolated as you can get!
[16:39] <astom> how much current would a optocoupler consume?
[16:39] <Gadgetoid_mbp> This is why it's seemingly not uncommon for an Arduino to be used as a Pi breakout board
[16:40] <Gadgetoid_mbp> from Skpang: Input Current:10mA
[16:40] <Gadgetoid_mbp> http://www.skpang.co.uk/catalog/4n3500e-optocoupler-p-556.html
[16:40] <astom> Gadgetoid_mbp: Thanks!
[16:40] <SpeedEvil> astom: depends on the sort - from a few microamps up
[16:41] <SpeedEvil> astom: most will probably signal adequately on ~10mA though
[16:41] <Gadgetoid_mbp> Do shift registers provide any isolation at all?
[16:41] <SpeedEvil> Unfortunately - from memory - the absolute max and recommendedcunt figures for the GPIO are not mentioned.
[16:41] <SpeedEvil> current
[16:41] <Gadgetoid_mbp> I'm still banking on using one of these: http://www.skpang.co.uk/catalog/74hc595-8bit-shift-register-p-558.html
[16:41] <SpeedEvil> Shift registers do not generally isolate at all.
[16:42] <Gadgetoid_mbp> I suppose I could optocouple a shift register
[16:42] <SpeedEvil> That is - if you connect mains to the output of one, you'll kill the device on the input too
[16:43] <Gadgetoid_mbp> I'd use the Pi's 3.3v output to drive the shift register??? I think
[16:43] <SpeedEvil> Probably sane
[16:43] <Gadgetoid_mbp> I think it'll run comfortably at 3.3v
[16:43] <SpeedEvil> hc* does

[16:44] <SpeedEvil> Gadgetoid_mbp: 10mA is not really required - it's just nominal
[16:44] <Gadgetoid_mbp> I think I'll have to buy some assorted components and play with them
[16:45] <Cheery> nid0: the within 3 weeks is good enough!
[16:45] <IT_Sean> If you explode your Pi please do come here and tell us. You'd only be the second person to admit killing one in chat.
[16:45] <SpeedEvil> If you have a 1mA load, you can go to 1mA input easily
[16:45] <Cheery> ended up buying the another
[16:45] <Gadgetoid_mbp> The optocouplers look straight forward enough, GPIO pin into pin 1, pin 2 to GND, pin 6 to GND, pin 5 to 3.3v and pin 4 to STUFF

[16:47] <Gadgetoid_mbp> the response time of a glut of optocouplers has got to be better than a shift register, too, but they'd mong up a breadboard something fierce
[16:48] <SpeedEvil> Umm - no.
[16:48] <SpeedEvil> Optoisolators can be quite slow.
[16:48] <SpeedEvil> The shift register - that one for example is - from memory - good to about 10MHz@3.3V
[16:48] <SpeedEvil> the optoisolator may do 50KHz

[16:51] <Gadgetoid_mbp> I might try that, normally I just stuff things together and hit google if it doesn't work
[16:52] <Gadgetoid_mbp> Pretty safe for code, but I might run into problems applying the same methodology to the physical domain
[16:52] <SpeedEvil> The first third of the first six chapters are basically your average 'beginning electronics' book.
[16:52] <SpeedEvil> It can work - but you end up with huge gaps in your knowledge that can waste more time than spending 5 hours reading a book

[18:02] <RaYmAn> chris_99: it's possible with something like ramconsole, but that requires being able to reboot the rpi without removing power (and booting another kernel than the one that crashes)
[18:03] <gordonDrogon> can't you just get something on the serial port and pickup the panic messages there?

[18:03] <chris_99> thats the only other thing i could think of
[18:04] <RaYmAn> that's probably easier than porting ramconsole, lol :)
[18:04] <chris_99> but i don't have a usb -> serial converte
[18:04] <friggle> netconsole exists, but didn't work me on the pi
[18:04] <friggle> and most panics are probably in the usb stack anyway ;)

[18:08] <chris_99> oh wait are you saying to attach that to the GPIO?
[18:08] <RaYmAn> well, attach that to the UART - which I guess is on some of the GPIO's?

[18:11] <chris_99> friggle, what happened when you tried netconsole?
[18:12] <RaYmAn> the issue with netconsole is that it requires the kernel booting quite far to actually work :P UART is sufficiently low-level to start early - But it depends a lot on what you are debugging
[18:13] <friggle> chris_99: well ther'es RaYmAn's issue, but actually the issue is it complains smsc95xx (our ethernet chip) doesn't support polling

[18:17] <chris_99> oh, i've got a 5V TTL -> USB converter, but let me guess, that's not going to work
[18:17] <gordonDrogon> all you need is a 3.3v serial to usb convertor ...
[18:17] <gordonDrogon> heh no, but ...
[18:17] <chris_99> heh
[18:17] <gordonDrogon> ifyou just wire up the output ...
[18:18] <gordonDrogon> as that's all you need, it will probably work.
[18:18] <Gadgetoid_mbp> Hmmm
[18:18] <gordonDrogon> ie. the output from the Pi to the input of the convertor.
[18:18] <chris_99> yeah, but i need 3.3V converter logic, rather than TTL?
[18:18] <gordonDrogon> well yes, but TTL will usually trip at 3.3v.
[18:19] <gordonDrogon> and you could put a simple divider on the output if you needed to type from the PC to the Pi.
[18:19] <a7x> [17:53:39] <+chris_99> i'm talking about on the Pi <- i'm sorry i got confused
[18:19] <a7x> i meant rpi :)
[18:20] <Gadgetoid_mbp> http://proto-pic.co.uk/usb-to-serial-ttl-cable-ftdi-5v-vcc-3-3v-i-o/ me wonders if this could be jerry-rigged to work
[18:20] <gordonDrogon> You could always run 2 Pi's back to back - run minicom on one and debug the other :)
[18:20] <chris_99> oh so it could work, i may give that a shot

[18:21] <Vostok> power two pi's from eachothers usb ports
[18:21] <chris_99> does anyone know of a pretty pinout diagram
[18:21] <Vostok> infinite power
[18:21] <gordonDrogon> actually, that cable http://proto-pic.co.uk/usb-to-serial-ttl-cable-ftdi-5v-vcc-3-3v-i-o/ would work fine.
[18:21] <gordonDrogon> you'll need to pick it apart and just use the ground, tx & rx wires.
[18:21] <gordonDrogon> just don't connect the +5V up (not that there's anything to connect it to)
[18:22] <Gadgetoid_mbp> Interesting
[18:22] <Gadgetoid_mbp> Don't even need to pick it apart, can stuff jump leads into the end
[18:22] <gordonDrogon> Vostok, not sure the Pi can run in usb slave mode...
[18:23] <RaYmAn> gordonDrogon: there is no risk of damage? On TX to RPI? Cause it'd still work just fine with just ground and rx (or rather - TX as seen from RPI side)
[18:23] <gordonDrogon> RaYmAn, wel that cable seems to suggest 3.3v IO.
[18:23] <gordonDrogon> RaYmAn, so it ought to be fine.
[18:23] <RaYmAn> ah.

[19:24] <gordonDrogon> I built one into a "hack" project last weekend: http://unicorn.drogon.net/fsc1.jpg then re-made it http://unicorn.drogon.net/fsc2.jpg so I then tried to run it on the Pi just for a bit of fun.

[19:54] <a7x> hope farnell hurries sending me mine :\
[19:54] <chnops_> never mind, googled it :)
[19:55] <chnops_> it's cool how lots of pages actually work quite well in links2, at least to get information from them
[19:58] <dmsuse> i think i need that too, my screen aint right
[19:59] <dmsuse> chnops_: you tried links graphical mode?
[19:59] <gordonDrogon> sorry - was afk, yes, just create it - sudo nano /boot/config.txt if you've not already done it.
[20:00] <dmsuse> omg disabling overscan made it worse lol
[20:00] <gordonDrogon> what I reckon is that if you have a "TV" then you need overscan which is the defult, but if it's a PC Monitor then you need to turn overscan off...
[20:00] <gordonDrogon> dmsuse, oops :)
[20:01] <chris_99> yay!!!!111111 the serial port works with a 5v ttl -> USB converter
[20:01] <Simon-> it's 3.3v
[20:01] <chris_99> i know
[20:01] <chris_99> but it works with ttl
[20:01] <Simon-> ?
[20:02] <plugwash> gordonDrogon, depends some TVs can be told not to do overscan
[20:02] <gordonDrogon> plugwash, yea, there is just too much variation...
[20:02] <chris_99> yeah, i've attached a TTL -> USB conveter to the UART TX pin of the Pi Simon-
[20:02] <plugwash> overscan compensation is turned on by default because black borders are considerablly less user-unfriendly than not being able to see the edges of the display
[20:03] <gordonDrogon> I've not even tried my Pi on my TV yet - however it's an old widescreen tube, so would connect up via the compost video socket...
[20:03] <gordonDrogon> chris_99, so just one- way for now?
[20:03] <chris_99> that's all i need for logging gobby
[20:03] <_Mikie_> Hi, Raspbmc.. The reboot and installer will continue. Is that a manual or auto reboot?
[20:04] <gordonDrogon> sure.
[20:04] <chris_99> * gordonDrogon
[20:06] <dmsuse> is there an underscan?
[20:06] <dmsuse> or can overscan go minus?
[20:06] <SpeedEvil> underscan is black borders
[20:06] <dmsuse> i already have black borders
[20:06] <chris_99> gordonDrogon, you where right, logging info @ boottime is output to the UART
[20:07] <chris_99> time to create a kernel panic
[20:07] <gordonDrogon> go for it :)
[20:07] <gordonDrogon> dmsuse, there's lots of things you can fiddle with in config.txt
[20:08] <dmsuse> yeah im trying :P
[20:08] <gordonDrogon> #framebuffer_width=784
[20:08] <gordonDrogon> #framebuffer_height=638
[20:08] <gordonDrogon> but put your own numbers in...
[20:08] <gordonDrogon> however if overscan is on, then 2 * 32 will be subtracted from them.
[20:09] <gordonDrogon> chris_99, if you look in /biit/cmdline.txt you'll see the boot parameters for the serial port...
[20:09] <chris_99> cheers, didn't know that

[20:37] <Davespice> I think X is broken on Raspbian right now. Correct me if I am wrong. After runing "apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade" xorg gets uninstalled and then its not possible to reinstall it
[20:37] <gordonDrogon> dmsuse, ok - probably has similar issues to my SDL applications.
[20:37] <Davespice> I'll give it a few days and try again :)
[20:37] <dmsuse> just showing purple :(
[20:38] <plugwash> mmm, blindly running dist-upgrade is a bad idea
[20:38] <plugwash> but yes I do need to figure out WTH is going on there
[20:38] <Davespice> yeah, I did it from following the advice on here; http://www.raspbian.org/HexxehImages
[20:39] <plugwash> yeah someone should probablly add a warning to that

[20:39] <plugwash> update is safe, upgrade is safe, dist-upgrade requires you to pay attention

[21:02] <ShiftPlusOne> huene, yeah, I've only recently found out about the really low current limit.

[21:08] <Davespice> plugwash: yeah I built it from source myself
[21:08] <gordonDrogon> My thoughts are that if you need more IO, then the Pi might not be the best thing to do it with...
[21:08] <Gadgetoid> An ATMega could be run at 3.3v and connected directly to the Pi's GPIO without messing with voltage regulators, serial cables and shizzle

[21:11] <gordonDrogon> Gadgetoid, sure...
[21:12] <Gadgetoid> Solder on some headers to the bottom, and it can be pushed straight into a breadboard
[21:12] <gordonDrogon> the Pi will power that OK. it's 3.3v.
[21:13] <Gadgetoid> Yes, just not over USB
[21:13] <gordonDrogon> sure - you'll need to power from the GPIO connector.
[21:14] <Gadgetoid> And if it's 3.3v, it should be logic compatible with the Pi without any fiddling

[21:23] <Gadgetoid> No Pi starter kits yet :( or no decent ones anyway
[21:23] <gordonDrogon> I've done lots of arduino stuff and used them to prototype stuff for my clients.
[21:24] <gordonDrogon> the starter kits can be expensive though.
[21:24] <Gadgetoid> Yeah I'm looking at the ~??65 SparkFun inventor's kit
[21:25] <gordonDrogon> ok, I was about to suggest this: http://www.skpang.co.uk/catalog/arduino-uno-starter-kit-d-p-554.html
[21:25] <gordonDrogon> but that has more bits in it :)
[21:25] <Gadgetoid> ALL the bits!
[21:25] <Gadgetoid> I think the Inventor's kit is pretty good value
[21:26] <gordonDrogon> it's not bad.
[21:26] <gordonDrogon> what I'm doing is remote controlling my arduinos from the Pi - via USB serial.
[21:26] <Gadgetoid> That sounds sensible
[21:27] <gordonDrogon> http://unicorn.drogon.net/piduino.jpg

[21:27] * JAWC (thejc@jawc.aka.thejc.me.uk) Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[21:28] <gordonDrogon> so the program in the Arduino is really a simple terminal program that just accepts commands from the host - which emulates most of the Arduino's "Wiring" librarly.
[21:28] <gordonDrogon> so the host can send a command pinMode (2,OUTPUT) then digitalWrite (2,HIGH) and so on.
[21:28] <Gadgetoid> Damn all this tempting awesomeness
[21:28] <Gadgetoid> I've got a lengthy book on electronics to read, too
[21:29] <gordonDrogon> there is obviously a bit of latency there, but for most stuff it's good enough.
[21:29] <Gadgetoid> You could compress the latency out by emulating a shift register or something, generally you don't change pin modes often
[21:29] <gordonDrogon> I'm actually programming it in basic (yea, I know) and I have my basic using the same commands for the Pi's on-board GPIO as the Arduinos off-board GPIO.
[21:30] <Gadgetoid> That's awesome, are the Arduinos pins just higher numbers then?
[21:30] <gordonDrogon> basic makes it very easy to do "mimic" displatys, etc.

[21:30] <gordonDrogon> y=drcopen ("/dev/ttyUSB0")

[21:31] <gordonDrogon> digitalwrite (y,2,1) // set led 2 on Arduino.

[21:37] <Gadgetoid> Nah shaulkr, it was something more terse and poignant??? the point is that C is still hugely prevalent today and C++ is a weird little deformed offshoot that nobody really has the heart to cut loose and incinerate

[22:58] <chris_99> this is what i was wondering, bootc
[22:58] <chris_99> sweet, so you're saying i can just dpkg -i that
[22:58] <FrankBuss> right, this would be the best, because then you can see the function names in the stack trace, which helps a lot

[23:07] <chris_99> cheers FrankBuss
[23:08] <bootc> chris_99: to install, it? just dpkg -i <pkg>, then depending on your RPi firmware you can just copy /boot/vmlinuz-3.2.18-rpi1+ to kernel.img on your boot partition
[23:08] <bootc> which in your case is probably also /boot
[23:08] <chris_99> ah ok :)
[23:08] <chris_99> this will really help me out!
[23:08] <bootc> but if you have the older firmware you have to get the first32k.bin file and that has to go in front of the kernel

[23:51] <FrankBuss> bootc: looks like the 32k kernel blob does still work with the latest firmware
[23:51] <bootc> FrankBuss: it does
[23:51] <bootc> well, only if you use the official first32k.bin
[23:51] <bootc> because it ignores it :-)
[23:52] <FrankBuss> ok, so I don't need imagetool.py script and can just use arch/arm/boot/Image?

[23:53] <gordonDrogon> is the first32k.bin something provided by the RPI foundation folks?
[23:54] <FrankBuss> yes, there was a thread somewhere that it simulates something what u-boot does when it loads a kernel

[23:56] <gordonDrogon> ok
[23:56] <gordonDrogon> might have a go at building a kernel at some point.
[23:56] <ShiftPlusOne> gordonDrogon, well worth it
[23:57] <dmsuse> anyone here get a ralink wifi working on their pi :P ?
[23:57] <gordonDrogon> I normally build kernels for all my servers, etc. customised to their exact hardware...
[23:57] <ShiftPlusOne> always know you're up to date and don't need to rely on others to have the features you need enabled
[23:57] <ShiftPlusOne> dmsuse, yes
[23:57] <ShiftPlusOne> dmsuse, are you on debian and is it complaining about the firmware (check dmesg) ?
[23:58] <dmsuse> yeah i fixed that
[23:58] <dmsuse> but just not getting dhcp offers
[23:58] <dmsuse> is there a way to check if it connected okay? (correct pass) ?
[23:58] <ShiftPlusOne> and you're authenticated and associated?
[23:58] <dmsuse> associated..
