[0:00] <piless_> http://www.ralfebert.de/tutorials/git/
[0:00] <teh_orph> yeah as I need actual help - I may have hosed my code
[0:01] <piless_> use a towel
[0:01] <teh_orph> hmm
[0:01] <PhonRaspPi> min:20 max:45 avg:32
[0:01] <PhonRaspPi> with the default demo
[0:01] * plugwash would suggest you go looking for a git channel, i've used git briefly but i'm not an expert on it
[0:01] <piless_> meh
[0:01] <PhonRaspPi> vertex lighting
[0:01] <piless_> is AA on?
[0:02] <PhonRaspPi> hell no
[0:03] <PhonRaspPi> hm, i wonder where its storing its config file
[0:04] * Nemo7 (nemo@nemo.org.org) Quit (Quit: it really tied the room together)
[0:04] * gordonDrogon waves
[0:04] * JaLu (~jalu@ Quit (Quit: Colloquy for iPhone)
[0:04] * PhonRaspPi waves back
[0:05] <PhonRaspPi> hello from pi land
[0:05] * piless_ soils himself
[0:05] <gordonDrogon> hello from who ate all the pi land..
[0:05] <PhonRaspPi> right so i have quake 3 working on my pi, what next? xD
[0:05] <gordonDrogon> play it?
[0:05] <piless_> 1ghz
[0:06] <gordonDrogon> 1G? Did you over volt?
[0:06] * tehtros (~tehtros@user-12hclnh.cable.mindspring.com) Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[0:06] <piless_> he's at 850
[0:06] * tehtros (~tehtros@user-12hclnh.cable.mindspring.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:06] * PiBot sets mode +v tehtros
[0:06] <gordonDrogon> now I have a 2nd, I might try overbolting the first ... (which has been at 900MHz for a few weeks now)
[0:06] <teh_orph> ffs, "cannot send to channel #git"
[0:06] <BigBalen> PhonRaspPi: Did audio work ?
[0:07] <DaQatz> Register your nick.
[0:07] <teh_orph> I didn't have to do that with #raspberrypi?
[0:08] <DaQatz> teh_orph: Not all channels restrict who can speak.
[0:08] <teh_orph> ahh
[0:08] <teh_orph> I'm pretty new to IRC - what does that involve? Is that what all the +v stuff is?
[0:08] <piless_> instead we have a stupid system in which the bot has to individually voice everyone
[0:09] <des2> +v means you are able to speak in a moderated channel.
[0:09] <DaQatz> /msg nickserv help register
[0:09] <DaQatz> For more info
[0:09] <DaQatz> No the +v is voice.
[0:09] <DaQatz> That is just a convenience thing for this channel.
[0:09] <teh_orph> mega thanks
[0:10] <DaQatz> Np
[0:10] <piless_> it's not a convenience
[0:12] <teh_orph> wow I saved my skin there - git checkout "(null")
[0:12] <gordonDrogon> checkout or clone... I'm slowly getting to grips with git myself...
[0:13] <gordonDrogon> I'm trying to keep all my stuff on a remote server (which I own), but work locally..
[0:13] <teh_orph> checkout
[0:13] <teh_orph> I made a remote repo, added code
[0:13] <teh_orph> then wanted to connect to the same repo from the pi
[0:13] <teh_orph> did git add, push - no joy
[0:13] <teh_orph> then did git checkout master and all my "added" code vanished
[0:13] <gordonDrogon> I used clone to get a remote repo to another device. Hm. might need more looking. That's a job for tomorow though.
[0:14] <teh_orph> it was living in a limbo known as (null)
[0:14] <gordonDrogon> but you got it all back though?
[0:14] * tehtros (~tehtros@user-12hclnh.cable.mindspring.com) Quit (Ping timeout: 250 seconds)
[0:14] <teh_orph> thank god!
[0:14] <teh_orph> now I somehow need to send these files to the internets
[0:14] <Gadgetoid_Air> I'm using git to hold all the stuff I do on my Pi
[0:15] <gordonDrogon> that's what I'm aiming, but I want to use something like gitweb to allow others to get my code - in .tgz and .dev formats.
[0:15] <gordonDrogon> *.deb
[0:15] <Gadgetoid_Air> git init && git add . && git commit -m "initial commit" && git remote add origin git@github.com:you/yourrepo.gif && git push origin master
[0:15] <gordonDrogon> so if I keep it on one of my own servers then I can run gitweb on that server and hopefully ...
[0:16] <gordonDrogon> heh
[0:16] * kcj (~casey@unaffiliated/kcj1993) has joined #raspberrypi

[0:16] * Holden (~holden@unaffiliated/holdenc) Quit (Quit: Ex-Chat)
[0:16] * Maccer (~Maccer@ Quit (Excess Flood)
[0:16] <Gadgetoid_Air> And that's how you init an existing folder and check it into your newly created repo at github??? I think??? I normally use mercurial
[0:16] <gordonDrogon> anyway off to bed now. full of crab from a localish rotary 'do' when they have an annual crab supper night!
[0:17] <Gadgetoid_Air> gordonDrogon: Eee, crab, my wife is into that crazy shellfish stuff
[0:17] <Gadgetoid_Air> I, for one, prefer chasing down and consuming whole cows
[0:17] <Gadgetoid_Air> Night ;)
[0:17] <gordonDrogon> I love seafood. And cow. Pig. Sheep... etc. :)
[0:17] <gordonDrogon> anyway..
[0:18] <gordonDrogon> zzz
[0:18] * PhonRaspPi (~pi@host86-164-193-10.range86-164.btcentralplus.com) Quit (Read error: No route to host)

[0:21] <PhonRaspPi> that was cool
[0:21] <PhonRaspPi> okay, GPU overclock time!
[0:22] <teh_orph> man I still can't commit these files
[0:22] <Gadgetoid_Air> Protip: Don't GPU overclock :D
[0:22] <PhonRaspPi> why not?
[0:22] <Dagger2> teh_orph: pastebin what you're doing + the output
[0:22] * Cheery (~cheery@a88-113-48-33.elisa-laajakaista.fi) Quit (Quit: Lost terminal)
[0:22] <Gadgetoid_Air> You'll think everything is hunky dory, but it'll catch you out eventually, and you'll spent a whole day trying to figure out why something isn't working
[0:22] <Gadgetoid_Air> spend* even
[0:22] * Cheery (~cheery@a88-113-48-33.elisa-laajakaista.fi) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:22] * PiBot sets mode +v Cheery
[0:23] <PhonRaspPi> isn't the GPU partly responsible for the boot process in some weird way?
[0:23] <teh_orph> http://pastebin.com/dgwcZCDK
[0:24] <PhonRaspPi> something to do with the firmware
[0:24] <teh_orph> they just aren't going in!
[0:24] <teh_orph> I managed to get the readme in via the same method, iirc
[0:24] <Gadgetoid_Air> Firmware brings up the graphics first, otherwise you presumably wouldn't get video out
[0:24] <teh_orph> https://github.com/simonjhall/dma-module
[0:24] <mjr> PhonRaspPi, yes, very weird
[0:24] <Dagger2> `git add` just stages the changes
[0:24] <PhonRaspPi> aha, i have an RDP client!
[0:24] <teh_orph> but then I do git commit?
[0:24] <Dagger2> you need to `git commit` to commit them, and *then* you can push them
[0:25] <Gadgetoid_Air> teh_orph: aarrghhgh Module.symvers arrghh, noo!
[0:25] <mjr> the chip was basically originally a GPU. Then they decided to stick in an ARM core as an afterthought. It boots on the GPU, and the GPU then tosses the ARM something to chew. Namely, Linux.
[0:25] <teh_orph> I am not committing that file
[0:25] <PhonRaspPi> lol nice
[0:25] <[SLB]> you need to push
[0:25] <Gadgetoid_Air> mjr: ???. the??? f???.. wtf?
[0:25] <teh_orph> I did a push
[0:25] <des2> Which is wht the GPU is good and the CPU sucks.
[0:25] <teh_orph> two pushes!
[0:25] * Dagger2 continues reading to the bottom of the pastebin
[0:26] <Gadgetoid_Air> We clearly need to rewrite linux to run on the GPU
[0:26] <PhonRaspPi> quake 3 runs supprisingly well
[0:26] <PhonRaspPi> once you disable the lightmap and use vertex lighting
[0:26] <PhonRaspPi> and 16 bit textures
[0:26] <[SLB]> git status -s
[0:26] <piless_> 30 fps isn't well
[0:26] <PhonRaspPi> i got it to 45 reliably with a few more things turned down
[0:26] <des2> Does 'suprisingly well' mean well or 'he's tall for a midget'.
[0:26] <piless_> match the fps of my monitor or gtfo
[0:26] <teh_orph> Gadgetoid_Air: am I just being dim?
[0:26] <PhonRaspPi> oddly enough the texture resolution doesn't seem to affect anything much
[0:26] <fakker> lol
[0:26] * wjt (~will@unaffiliated/resiak) has left #raspberrypi
[0:27] * IT_Sean (~IT_Sean@applefritter/IRCStaff/UltimateMacUser1) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:27] * PiBot sets mode +v IT_Sean
[0:27] <Gadgetoid_Air> teh_orph: Did you "add" ?
[0:27] <PhonRaspPi> well for something the size of a CC :P
[0:27] <teh_orph> yep
[0:27] <teh_orph> [root@alarmpi dmaer]# git add dmaer.c mapper.c
[0:27] * ChanServ sets mode +o IT_Sean
[0:27] <mjr> kids these days frowning on a good 30 fps...
[0:27] <piless_> back at home?
[0:27] <PhonRaspPi> IT_Sean, 875MHz, quake 3 works :)
[0:27] <IT_Sean> NICE!
[0:27] <IT_Sean> Going higher?
[0:27] <PhonRaspPi> maybe
[0:27] * warddr (~warddr@Wikipedia/Warddr) Quit (Quit: Ik ga weg)
[0:28] <IT_Sean> Yes, i am @ home, piless_
[0:28] <PhonRaspPi> i wanna find something other than quake 3 that uses the GPU nicely
[0:28] <Gadgetoid_Air> teh_orph: weird things happening there
[0:28] <Dagger2> the "detached HEAD 2da1e24" after `git commit` confuses me. I think you're committing your changes to a detached head branch?
[0:28] * BigBalen (~looney@2001:770:1c3:0:51b4:7d54:af82:73bb) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[0:28] <PhonRaspPi> setting links2 as my default browser was a good idea
[0:28] <Dagger2> which would explain why `git push -u origin master` says "up-to-date" (because you haven't changed master)
[0:28] <PhonRaspPi> if i just want to look at a pastebin or an image, works well :)
[0:29] <Dagger2> and I think plain `git push` tries to push the master branch here, so that's the same as explicitly setting it
[0:30] * njection (~njection@c-71-237-250-46.hsd1.or.comcast.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:30] * PiBot sets mode +v njection
[0:30] * UnderSampled|tab (~UnderSamp@ Quit (Quit: Leaving.)
[0:31] * Starscreamer (~starscrea@b0ff23f7.bb.sky.com) Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[0:31] <Dagger2> (`gitk` may be useful in working out what you've done, assuming it's installed and you have an X server available)
[0:31] <PhonRaspPi> hmm, anyone tried gnash yet?
[0:31] <GabrialDestruir> You're rocking 875 stable?
[0:31] <PhonRaspPi> yeah
[0:31] <PhonRaspPi> played some quake 3, seems okay
[0:32] <PhonRaspPi> i reckon it'd manage 900
[0:32] <piless_> can you fry an egg on it yet?
[0:32] <PhonRaspPi> lol 1 sec i'll tell you
[0:32] <GabrialDestruir> You try the GPU clocking yet?
[0:32] <des2> No but he can fry his memory
[0:32] <PhonRaspPi> its still okay to touch
[0:32] <Dagger2> and if you're happy with moving your changes to the master branch, I think you can do something like `git stash; git checkout master; git stash pop` (but do it in a backup first!)
[0:32] <PhonRaspPi> doesn't hurt
[0:32] <IT_Sean> is it still no more than "slightly warmish" to the touch?
[0:32] <PhonRaspPi> yeah
[0:33] <IT_Sean> awesome :D
[0:33] <PhonRaspPi> its now "distinctly warm" instead of "slightly warm"
[0:33] <PhonRaspPi> hows the GPU overclock done?
[0:33] <PhonRaspPi> and whats the stock speed?
[0:33] <piless_> IT_Sean: There's a huge range in between slightly warm and doesn't hurt
[0:33] <des2> Pry the memory off so you can see how hot the CPU under it actually is.
[0:33] <GabrialDestruir> gpu_freq=
[0:33] <PhonRaspPi> well heat hurts at about 40 degrees
[0:33] <GabrialDestruir> not sure on speeds
[0:33] <PhonRaspPi> thats when it feels like you're being burnt
[0:34] <PhonRaspPi> and you start burning at around 41
[0:34] * nils_2 (~nils_2@unaffiliated/nils-2/x-2480262) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:34] * PiBot sets mode +v nils_2
[0:34] <GabrialDestruir> Default is 250
[0:34] <PhonRaspPi> http://paste.debian.net/171184/ GabrialDestruir
[0:34] <piless_> change it to 500
[0:34] <GabrialDestruir> But supposedly it's been gotten up to 350
[0:34] <PhonRaspPi> ah wait that was at 850
[0:34] * jprvita is now known as jprvita|afk
[0:35] <PhonRaspPi> brb, starting at 300
[0:35] * PhonRaspPi (~pi@host86-164-193-10.range86-164.btcentralplus.com) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[0:36] <piless_> are we going to get another danieldaniel.. waaa waaa I set the values too high and now my pi smells of burning
[0:36] <GabrialDestruir> We need to create a clock testing program/os type thing
[0:37] <GabrialDestruir> something that stress tests each clock speed and when it becomes unstable reverts the the last stable value
[0:37] <piless_> define unstable
[0:37] * dnstbr (~dnstbr@rrcs-24-227-252-21.sw.biz.rr.com) Quit (Quit: Shutting down, yo.)
[0:38] <GabrialDestruir> crashing?
[0:38] <GabrialDestruir> idk
[0:38] <SpeedEvil> Momentarily stable, and long-term reliable are not the same thing.
[0:38] <GabrialDestruir> True...
[0:38] * Maccer (~Maccer@ has joined #raspberrypi
[0:38] * PiBot sets mode +v Maccer
[0:38] <piless_> I'll give you grant money for 2 years worth of intensive tests.
[0:38] <piless_> Get to work.
[0:39] * njection (~njection@c-71-237-250-46.hsd1.or.comcast.net) Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[0:39] <GabrialDestruir> If your Pi get hots just invest in a fan? >.>

[0:40] * PiBot sets mode +v PhonRaspPi
[0:40] <PhonRaspPi> okay GPU is at 300
[0:40] <PhonRaspPi> lets see how this goes...
[0:40] <GabrialDestruir> Is there a way to measure the temp of the CPU and GPU from the OS?
[0:41] <PhonRaspPi> don't think so
[0:41] <GabrialDestruir> Or do the chips not have that capability?
[0:41] <piless_> don't stand too close
[0:41] <PhonRaspPi> doubt the chip even has the sensors for it
[0:41] <PhonRaspPi> q3 time!
[0:41] <GabrialDestruir> Yea that's what I was wonder, whether there were sensors
[0:41] * chris_99 (~chris@unaffiliated/chris-99/x-3062929) Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[0:42] <GabrialDestruir> I suppose you could always rig up a couple temp sensors and have them report feedback via GPIO
[0:42] * ssvb (~ssvb@a88-114-220-213.elisa-laajakaista.fi) Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[0:42] <GabrialDestruir> or SPI
[0:42] <SpeedEvil> GabrialDestruir: Temperature isn't the only damaging thing.
[0:43] <GabrialDestruir> What else is a factor then? Cause I know heat is one....
[0:44] * PhonRaspPi (~pi@host86-164-193-10.range86-164.btcentralplus.com) Quit (Read error: No route to host)
[0:44] <SpeedEvil> Electromigration.
[0:44] * TTSDA (~Cookies@mcblockit/staff/TTSDA) Quit (Quit: Rainbow Dash is best pony)
[0:44] <SpeedEvil> In short - very small wires 'wear out'.
[0:44] <SpeedEvil> At overload.

[0:45] * david____ (~david@cpc13-sgyl27-2-0-cust291.sgyl.cable.virginmedia.com) Quit (Ping timeout: 244 seconds)
[0:45] <GabrialDestruir> Hmm...
[0:45] <GabrialDestruir> I was under the impression that type of thing was from overvolting.
[0:46] <GabrialDestruir> Which was why people like to undervolt their phones and stuff so it survives longer.
[0:46] <SpeedEvil> Nope.
[0:46] <des2> People undervolt their phones ?
[0:46] <GabrialDestruir> Mhm
[0:46] <piless_> undervolting doesn't do shit
[0:47] <nid0> without overvolting theres essentially no danger in just overclocking, itll either be stable and fine or youll overclock too far and itll be unstable
[0:47] <SpeedEvil> Electromigration is due to higher current in wires, which may be due to higher frequency.
[0:47] <SpeedEvil> See the thunderbolt recall.
[0:47] * TTSDA (~Cookies@mcblockit/staff/TTSDA) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:47] * PiBot sets mode +v TTSDA
[0:47] <SpeedEvil> nid0: And that's not always really true - the TI OMAP datasheets specifically give power-on-hours at various clock freqs.
[0:47] <SpeedEvil> For example.
[0:48] * bamdad (~bamdadd@host-89-241-245-35.as13285.net) Quit (Ping timeout: 265 seconds)
[0:48] <piless_> des2: some people are under the mistaken impression that undervolting will improve their battery life
[0:48] * prebz_ (~prebz@c83-248-137-170.bredband.comhem.se) Quit (Ping timeout: 252 seconds)
[0:48] <SpeedEvil> piless_: In limited cases, it can.
[0:48] <des2> Interesting.
[0:48] <GabrialDestruir> I imagine it would.
[0:48] <SpeedEvil> For example, if you're playing mp3 from internal storage with the screen off, it may help.
[0:49] <GabrialDestruir> Using less power for the same speeds means some sort of savings...
[0:49] <SpeedEvil> If the screen is on, or you're talking over wireless in any form - network or data - it's generally irrelevant

[0:50] <GabrialDestruir> I imagine it's a lot like the whole "Vampire Electronics"
[0:50] <PhonRaspPi> right so that didn't work to well
[0:50] <piless_> did it explode?
[0:50] <DaQatz> http://i.imgur.com/uFYua.gif
[0:50] <PhonRaspPi> immediately after hitting the game it blacked out
[0:51] * BeholdMyGlory (~behold@d90-130-9-40.cust.tele2.se) Quit (Changing host)
[0:51] * BeholdMyGlory (~behold@unaffiliated/beholdmyglory) has joined #raspberrypi

[0:51] * BeholdMyGlory is now known as Behold
[0:51] <PhonRaspPi> i wish the desktop was GPU accelerated
[0:51] <cromag> Tykling: har du f?et din raspi ?
[0:51] <GabrialDestruir> That idea that while an item is plugged in that it's using power even when it's off, which only recently caused an influx of people buying "smart power bars"
[0:52] <des2> I wonder how much current the overclocked PI uses.
[0:52] <PhonRaspPi> me too
[0:52] <PhonRaspPi> im back running at 875 CPU, stock GPU
[0:52] <piless_> GabrialDestruir: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AntDDKv-lS6IdEY4T3dXWVFDWk9lREdJNGFfU2NwRlE#gid=0
[0:53] <SpeedEvil> OTOH. If you are not running it constantly, and you don't much care if it dies - overclocking probably is not an issue at all.
[0:53] <piless_> undervolting doesn't do shit
[0:53] <plugwash> GabrialDestruir, in the days of PSUs using mains frequency transformers wall warts often ran rather hot even when under no load
[0:53] * Gadgetoid_Air (~gadgetoid@cpc6-nrwh10-2-0-cust61.4-4.cable.virginmedia.com) has left #raspberrypi
[0:53] <SpeedEvil> piless_: It can, in very limited circumstnaces.
[0:53] * Gadgetoid_Air (~gadgetoid@cpc6-nrwh10-2-0-cust61.4-4.cable.virginmedia.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:53] * PiBot sets mode +v Gadgetoid_Air
[0:53] <piless_> http://www.xda-developers.com/android/in-depth-nexus-s-battery-study-brings-about-surprising-conclusions/
[0:53] <Gadgetoid_Air> All the solarized!
[0:54] <GabrialDestruir> I'm dropping back down to 800 cause my CPU is running hot.
[0:54] <SpeedEvil> That's misleading.
[0:54] <piless_> plugwash: my phone charger whines at me when it's not being used.
[0:54] <SpeedEvil> For undervolting to have a point - you need to be running the CPU
[0:54] <PhonRaspPi> okay now for the big test
[0:54] <SpeedEvil> - for example - playing MP3, or ...
[0:54] <PhonRaspPi> lets put a minecraft server on this thing...
[0:54] <SpeedEvil> Simply undervolting it when it's idle - for the .1% of time when the CPU is on - does nothing at all.
[0:54] <piless_> minecraft server needs at least a gig of ram
[0:55] <PhonRaspPi> you can run a small 4 player one on 128mb if you use the lowest view distance
[0:55] <plugwash> piless_, the whining can actually be a good sign power consumption wise with switchers, it generally means that the switcher is operating in discontinuous mode
[0:55] <plugwash> because the power consumption is so low
[0:55] <SpeedEvil> Undervolting helps when the device is running all the time as it has unavoidable work to do.
[0:55] <Gadgetoid_Air> I've been running my Pi solidly at 900 for days
[0:55] <GabrialDestruir> You could probably setup a HDD swap
[0:55] <SpeedEvil> (for example - mp3)
[0:56] <piless_> jesus christ I read that as 900 days
[0:56] <GabrialDestruir> Get the other 750 of Ram to run a Minecraft server
[0:56] <GabrialDestruir> so did I
[0:56] <Gadgetoid_Air> piless_: Hahaha, 900 days :D
[0:56] <GabrialDestruir> I was like "How the hell"
[0:57] <GabrialDestruir> Gadgetoid, want to share your code for your Pi site? :p
[0:57] <PhonRaspPi> hmm, anyone know the package name for a jre?
[0:57] <SpeedEvil> dalvik
[0:57] <PhonRaspPi> :P
[0:57] <Gadgetoid_Air> GabrialDestruir: it's a bit of an abomination, but I might be able to clean it up
[0:58] <Gadget-Mac> PhonRaspPi: try sudo apt-get install openjdk-6-jre
[0:58] <piless_> what pi site?
[0:58] <GabrialDestruir> Send over your abomination, then I can clean it up and it'll help me learn Ruby and stuff :p
[0:58] <PhonRaspPi> aha, 6 but not 7
[0:58] <Gadget-Mac> Works ok for the arduinoIDE :) http://raspberrypi.homelabs.org.uk/raspberrypi-the-arduino-development-tool/
[0:58] <piless_> Gadget-Mac: isn't it 7 now?
[0:58] <PhonRaspPi> i tried openjdk-7-jre, no package
[0:58] <GabrialDestruir> rpi.dnsd.me:31415 Gadgetoid's Pi
[0:58] <PhonRaspPi> might be on edgy thought, i'm on squeeze
[0:59] <GabrialDestruir> or would be...
[0:59] <GabrialDestruir> cept it's dead apparently
[0:59] <PhonRaspPi> mmm
[0:59] <PhonRaspPi> web browsing is much better with images disabled in midori
[0:59] <Gadgetoid_Air> GabrialDestruir: I moved it
[0:59] <Gadgetoid_Air> To pi.gadgetoid.com
[0:59] <Gadgetoid_Air> And port 80 :D
[0:59] * passstab (~coplon@c-68-80-37-73.hsd1.pa.comcast.net) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[1:00] <Gadgetoid_Air> And added more websockets, haha
[1:00] <PhonRaspPi> what's on it?
[1:00] <PhonRaspPi> i wonder if i could put a bunch of Pis in a 1U chassis and put it in a DC somewhere
[1:00] <piless_> that logo really doesn't need the R, I don't know why they did it.. you don't have to include the R in the logo of a registered trademark
[1:00] <GabrialDestruir> You should setup a redirect
[1:00] <GabrialDestruir> lol
[1:01] * Delboy_ (~Delboy_@dh207-6-22.xnet.hr) Quit (Ping timeout: 265 seconds)
[1:01] <Gadgetoid_Air> GabrialDestruir: Haha, a redirect back from 31415, eee!
[1:01] <GabrialDestruir> Also it looks like your stats are broken either way.
[1:02] <piless_> these animated status bars were making me feel sick before
[1:02] * SnackPak (~andrew@wsip-174-76-19-154.oc.oc.cox.net) Quit (Quit: Lost terminal)
[1:02] <GabrialDestruir> Yea, but the users isn't changing.
[1:03] <Gadgetoid_Air> GabrialDestruir: I replaced the stats code with websockets stuff which may or may not work, I haven't tested it
[1:03] <Gadgetoid_Air> If it doesn't work, it's cos your browser is from the 1980s :D
[1:04] <GabrialDestruir> The latest Chrome tyvm :p
[1:04] <piless_> GabrialDestruir: which release chain?
[1:05] <piless_> there are three latest chromes
[1:05] <GabrialDestruir> Hell if I know? It's whatever official build for windows
[1:05] <GabrialDestruir> Stable
[1:05] <piless_> I'm on dev
[1:05] <piless_> chrome 21 ftw
[1:06] <GabrialDestruir> I tried the dev or beta or w/e for a while, but it was too unstable.
[1:06] <piless_> unstable how? I've never had any issues.
[1:07] * Thasan (thasan@o82.ip7.netikka.fi) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:07] * PiBot sets mode +v Thasan
[1:07] <GabrialDestruir> Eh this was way back when. 3-4 years and it was always crashing on me and stuff. lol
[1:07] <Gadgetoid_Air> GabrialDestruir: hmm, perhaps something is blocking the websocket- probably the cloudflare stuff
[1:07] <Hexxeh> PhonRaspPi: re the DC idea, I did consider it
[1:07] <Hexxeh> I've been looking into how many you could fit into a given space
[1:07] <piless_> chrome hasn't been around for 3-4 years.
[1:08] <GabrialDestruir> The CPU doesn't appear to be changing either, but it's hard to tell.
[1:08] <PhonRaspPi> Hexxeh, you could get a lot into a 1U rack
[1:08] <PhonRaspPi> there's probably a small market for renting them out
[1:08] <Hexxeh> PhonRaspPi: the problem is that the ethernet and power cables are on opposite sides
[1:08] <GabrialDestruir> Uh yea it has....
[1:08] <piless_> oh shit
[1:08] <PhonRaspPi> Hexxeh, btw I tried out your Q3 binaries :)
[1:08] <GabrialDestruir> Initial release was 08
[1:09] <Hexxeh> PhonRaspPi: they're compiled against an old version of the VC libs so they might not work if you've used rpi-update
[1:09] * plugwash has often wondered about mounting multiple arm boards in a 1U rackmount case
[1:09] <Hexxeh> I've just compiled some Raspbian hardfp ones now
[1:09] <GabrialDestruir> So that'd be when it just came out.
[1:09] <PhonRaspPi> Hexxeh, they work fine for me
[1:09] <PhonRaspPi> I'm running on Debian
[1:09] <Gadgetoid_Air> GabrialDestruir: try a hard refresh, if all else fails refresh http://pi.gadgetoid.co.uk/bootstrap/js/custom.min.js
[1:09] <Hexxeh> PhonRaspPi: if you've not updated your VC libs, they'll work fine
[1:09] <plugwash> you can get 5 port network switches with one port on one side and 4 on the other, i'd probablly mount one of those in the IO plate hole
[1:09] <PhonRaspPi> aye ive not
[1:10] <PhonRaspPi> there aren't any updates for them anyway on squeeze
[1:10] <plugwash> and then just have all the wiring to the arm boards internal
[1:10] <plugwash> with maybe another switch somewhere else in the box
[1:11] <Hexxeh> with PoE, it might work better
[1:11] <piless_> Gadgetoid_Air: ugh they are making me feel sick again
[1:11] <Hexxeh> preferably a board that attaches to do PoE and a serial console
[1:11] <Gadgetoid_Air> piless_: hahaha, but but animation! :D
[1:11] <GabrialDestruir> Hmm....
[1:11] * plugwash wonders what is wrong with just wiring all the arm boards in a 1U server case to the PSU that came with the 1U server case
[1:11] <GabrialDestruir> Most stable CPU usage
[1:11] <GabrialDestruir> Evar
[1:12] <piless_> Gadgetoid_Air: it still says 0 users though
[1:12] <plugwash> and doesn't see any need for POE
[1:12] <Gadgetoid_Air> 0 users???. weird??? dun dun DUN
[1:12] <piless_> oh shit
[1:12] <GabrialDestruir> There we go
[1:12] <piless_> it went to 1
[1:12] <Gadgetoid_Air> Ah, there *were* 0 users
[1:12] <Gadgetoid_Air> I just logged in via ssh :D
[1:12] <GabrialDestruir> xD
[1:12] <Gadgetoid_Air> I'd closed all my terminal windows to change the colour scheme to solarised
[1:13] <GabrialDestruir> Getting the wrong user count? :p
[1:13] <piless_> the uptime is only updating every 2 seconds, it feels weird.
[1:13] <GabrialDestruir> It should be every second
[1:13] <GabrialDestruir> yea
[1:13] <Hexxeh> plugwash: more for neatness of wiring and cramming as many as possible in
[1:13] <Gadgetoid_Air> I might have to use a more compressed format than json
[1:14] <piless_> cpu load went down 1%
[1:14] <GabrialDestruir> Or every 3.1415 seconds >.>
[1:14] <piless_> huh, I thought ssh maxed out the cpu
[1:14] * PhonRaspPi starts a minecraft server up on his pi...
[1:15] <Gadgetoid_Air> piless_: only if you use X forwarding
[1:15] <piless_> PhonRaspPi: I'm telling you, it won't work
[1:15] <GabrialDestruir> oh
[1:15] <Gadgetoid_Air> I have successfully run minecraft-server on my Pi
[1:15] <GabrialDestruir> I guess ssh would work better if my pi was plugged in
[1:15] <PhonRaspPi> piless_, there are very few people who know more about Minecraft servers than I
[1:15] <PhonRaspPi> it can be done
[1:15] <PhonRaspPi> apart from anything else I've done it on my N900
[1:15] <Gadgetoid_Air> Not much use as anything but a curiosity, and it takes forever for it to generate the chunks initially
[1:15] <Gadgetoid_Air> But once it's got going, it's not bad
[1:16] <piless_> Gadgetoid_Air: So it would make an okay 2 person server?
[1:16] <PhonRaspPi> you could probably get 4 people on it
[1:16] <PhonRaspPi> just don't expect to run bukkit
[1:16] <plugwash> Hexxeh, meh, i'd probablly want hard drives too and most 1U cases only have 4 drive bays or so anyway
[1:16] <piless_> PhonRaspPi: If you get it working, give me the link and I'll hop on :P
[1:16] <Gadgetoid_Air> The estimates were ~50mb/user on the forums, I don't know how accurate they were ( of RAM )
[1:16] <PhonRaspPi> piless_, righto
[1:17] <PhonRaspPi> i might drop a map in instead of having it generate one
[1:17] <GabrialDestruir> Build a stripped downed Minecraft server OS!
[1:17] <plugwash> though with Pis you would have to mess arround with USB-sata converters if you wanted hard drives anyway :(
[1:17] <PhonRaspPi> for the pi?
[1:17] <piless_> GabrialDestruir: already exists
[1:17] <Hexxeh> plugwash: ah, I was thinking about stripping a 1U case down so it's literally just a box and running all the Pis with SD cards
[1:17] <Gadgetoid_Air> piless_: try connecting to rpi.dnsd.me in minecraft
[1:17] <Hexxeh> and just cramming as many as possible in
[1:17] <plugwash> hehe, I was thinking more about build clusters
[1:17] <GabrialDestruir> Take the bare minimum amount of ram for the actual OS
[1:17] <nid0> *sigh* no iscsi in the pi's debian kernel :\
[1:17] <plugwash> 4 imx53 quickstart boards with hard drives in 1u
[1:18] <piless_> Gadgetoid_Air: k
[1:18] <GabrialDestruir> then dedicate the rest to users
[1:18] <Gadgetoid_Air> My Pi may implode, as it's only got ~35mb RAM free
[1:18] <GabrialDestruir> I need to stop playing around with my Pi
[1:18] <GabrialDestruir> and throw together a root for the Nook Simple Touch Glow

[1:22] <Dagger2> Hexxeh: the problem is that, after you've bought all the RPis, you've spent roughly the same amount of money you would have spent buying a server with the same amount of CPU power + RAM, so you may as well just use VMs in the first place :(

[1:26] <Hexxeh> Dagger2: that's true, but Pi is probably cheaper in the long term (replacement is easy and simple, just swap it out for a new Pi and put the customers SD card in a new unit, continue as normal) and it's total isolation
[1:27] <Gadgetoid_Air> Haha, kicked from my own server :D

[1:36] <piless_> buy one
[1:36] <missPapaya> why?
[1:36] <piless_> because the man on irc said so

[1:41] <missPapaya> I think the firmware is built into the x86 kernel from what I read but obviously I'm not on x86
[1:41] <nid0> depends on your dns provider
[1:42] <Gadgetoid_Air> missPapaya: I had to install firmware to get my Realtek card working
[1:42] <piless_> PhonRaspPi: I feel so lonely
[1:42] <missPapaya> Gadgetoid_Air: what distro are you on?
[1:42] <PhonRaspPi> piless_, they're free unless you have a scummy registrar who only uses their own nameservers :P
[1:42] <Gadgetoid_Air> missPapaya: Debian
[1:43] <piless_> bah it shut down
[1:43] <PhonRaspPi> piless_, if you just wanna see that map - head to play.phonicuk.com
[1:43] <PhonRaspPi> no port number
[1:44] <GabrialDestruir> I wonder how legit this free minecraft account site is >.>
[1:44] <PhonRaspPi> not at all clearly
[1:44] <GabrialDestruir> lol
[1:44] <PhonRaspPi> they usually ask you to register with an email and password and hope that you share the details with something important
[1:45] <GabrialDestruir> supposedly if I get "10 refferals" it'll unlock a minecraft code xD
[1:45] <GabrialDestruir> -loads up tor-
[1:45] <missPapaya> lol
[1:45] <PhonRaspPi> just buy the game
[1:45] <PhonRaspPi> its like $16
[1:45] <Gadgetoid_Air> Yeah because Minecraft is prohibitively expensive :D
[1:45] <Gadgetoid_Air> I have three accounts, and the Xbox version
[1:45] <piless_> GabrialDestruir: Just get the server to turn off auth check and used a hacked client
[1:45] <GabrialDestruir> It's like 27 dollars last time I checked
[1:45] <GabrialDestruir> .-.
[1:45] <missPapaya> is it possible to run minecraft on the pi?
[1:45] <piless_> I bought it when it was alpha
[1:45] <PhonRaspPi> no
[1:45] <GabrialDestruir> They just ran the servers on Pi
[1:46] <PhonRaspPi> it may be possible to run the pocket edition though if we get Android
[1:46] <PhonRaspPi> and the server sorta runs
[1:46] <missPapaya> I don't think I'd want to run a server on a pi
[1:46] <GabrialDestruir> I don't imagine it could run the client without major swap
[1:46] <missPapaya> swap on the SD card for maximum speed boost
[1:46] <missPapaya> :P
[1:46] <Gadgetoid_Air> Minecraft relies on a java graphics library that I don't believe anyone has ported yet, so getting the client to work could be tricky??? although getting 2GB RAM in your Pi would be trickier :D
[1:47] <missPapaya> I think they have an arm port of the binary portion
[1:47] <missPapaya> don't you just need lwjgl for arm?
[1:47] <Gadgetoid_Air> That would require Ogles instead of Ogl
[1:47] <PhonRaspPi> you'd need it for OGL:ES instead of straight OpenGL
[1:48] <Gadgetoid_Air> Unless something changed recently, I haven't heard of an ogles version
[1:48] <PhonRaspPi> piless_, its dead
[1:48] <missPapaya> I should just start reverse-engineering the gpu on the pi

[1:51] <PhonRaspPi> so they're basically charging you to use their nameservers :\
[1:51] <PhonRaspPi> thats still scummy
[1:51] <GabrialDestruir> It's not incrementing my referal count....
[1:51] <PhonRaspPi> lol
[1:51] <piless_> PhonRaspPi: I use a friends dreamhost server for my main site, so would it be easy to set up a subdomain for free on the dreamhost side of things?
[1:51] <Gadgetoid_Air> Hmm pushing from websockets every second results in very sporadic updates, I'll have to buffer them
[1:51] <PhonRaspPi> piless_, if you run the nameserver yourself, its pretty simple
[1:52] <piless_> I don't
[1:52] <PhonRaspPi> im not familiar with dreamhost though, I've only ever rented dedis and done it myself

[1:54] <PhonRaspPi> piless_, you need A records and aliases to add subdomains
[1:54] <piless_> I have A
[1:54] <PhonRaspPi> can you add multiple A records?
[1:55] <GabrialDestruir> scummy cheaters... not incrementing the refferal count... lol
[1:55] <PhonRaspPi> GabrialDestruir, what do you expect? they are universally scan sites

[1:57] <PhonRaspPi> same asge as me
[1:57] <markus> hello
[1:57] <piless_> 22 here
[1:57] <PhonRaspPi> for the minecrafters: are you familiar with McMyAdmin?
[1:57] <piless_> I've heard of it, but I've never bothered with setting up a server myself
[1:57] <PhonRaspPi> guess who makes it :P
[1:58] <PhonRaspPi> frozen bubble is taking ages to load
[1:59] <piless_> PhonRaspPi: So adding a new A record will point a subdomain somewhere
[1:59] <PhonRaspPi> its one of the things you can use A records for yes
[1:59] <markus> yyo
[1:59] <PhonRaspPi> you can add * as an A record to point all subdomains to a given address
[1:59] <GabrialDestruir> I need to find a new webhost before june
[2:00] <PhonRaspPi> regardless of the name
[2:00] <PhonRaspPi> woooo frozen bubble is running!
[2:00] <markus> what if it has a really lame name
[2:00] <PhonRaspPi> veeery slowly
[2:00] <markus> will you still use the hoaaas?
[2:00] <piless_> PhonRaspPi: Would that be *.domain.com or just *
[2:01] <PhonRaspPi> just *
[2:01] <piless_> Would it point the main domain aswell?

[2:12] <piless_> not good at all
[2:12] <plugwash> one problem with many simulation style games is they get more demanding as the game progresses
[2:13] <plugwash> openttd for example will run on the pi and you can set up a few links fine but i've seen openttd games bring a sandy bridge system to it's knees
[2:15] <piless_> same with my laptop and civ 5 with 20 ai
[2:15] <piless_> as the game gets longer, it just gets slower and slower

[2:29] <Dagger2> ah, it was ???10 rather than $10
[2:30] <piless> the price has always been in euros
[2:30] <Dagger2> the price increases were at least well-announced in advance, rather than being a "oh hey, we jacked the price up now that it's better"

[2:50] <GabrialDestruir> This year or next year xD
[2:50] <netman87> oh i did say if i order now
[2:50] <GabrialDestruir> All basis covered >.>
[2:50] <netman87> not "if i place ticket about my interest on board"
[2:50] <GabrialDestruir> Depends where you're ordering from?
[2:50] <piless_> netman87: farnell do pre-orders, RS don't.
[2:51] <netman87> finland and as far as i know there is only one place where u can order at this point
[2:51] <IT_Sean> netman87, if you have an order code, and you order now, you should have it within 4 weeks or so.
[2:51] <IT_Sean> ooh, you can't order to finland?
[2:51] <netman87> oh i can
[2:51] <piless_> netman87: what website?
[2:51] <netman87> i was just saying that i dont know more than one shop where i can order it
[2:52] <IT_Sean> Do you have an order code, netman87?
[2:52] <netman87> Place your order for a Raspberry Pi from RS Components and Allied Electronics today
[2:52] <netman87> We're delighted to inform you that you are now able to place your order for a Raspberry Pi model B board from RS Components. Please click on the button below
[2:52] <GabrialDestruir> So I created a new user for my Pi do I need to add it to any specific groups?
[2:52] <netman87> Your unique activation code is XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX You will also be asked to confirm the email address which you first registered with. This is an additional security measure.
[2:52] <piless_> netman87: Expect it in 1-3 weeks then
[2:53] <IT_Sean> aye, within 4 weeks, then.
[2:53] <netman87> :/ takes pretty long then
[2:53] <Dagger2> netman87: I placed an order with RS yesterday, and the order confimation says "Despatch expected within 5 weeks"
[2:53] <Dagger2> for whatever that's worth
[2:53] <netman87> also im not happy with price
[2:53] <piless_> netman87: They say three weeks, but that's just a gross over-estimation to cover their asses
[2:54] <PhonRaspPi> took 3 moths for mine to arrive xD
[2:54] <piless_> the price is non-negotiable
[2:54] <netman87> it should be 4 eur less (if i order RPi + EU usb powerplug i need to pay additional costs because total price goes over 43eur)
[2:54] <piless_> netman87: Any micro usb mains charger should work
[2:55] <netman87> PhonRaspPi: yeah didnt they have some problems with first sets of them? something to do with wrong part on hundred of them?
[2:55] <PhonRaspPi> yeah
[2:55] <piless_> netman87: They had the wrong ethernet port. But they fixed that
[2:55] <ReggieUK> that was on a few thousand :)
[2:55] <PhonRaspPi> to give you some idea, my board was manufactured in week 5 of this year
[2:56] <GabrialDestruir> 10,000
[2:56] <GabrialDestruir> to be percise
[2:56] <piless_> the scummy factory tried to save money by switching out a part and hoping the foundation wouldn't notice
[2:56] <PhonRaspPi> and it arrived today
[2:56] <piless_> PhonRaspPi: Production has ramped up now.
[2:56] <netman87> piless_: yeah. but it just makes is harder for me... i would love to have set that is ready to go
[2:57] <piless_> All orders should be fullfilled by august
[2:57] <PhonRaspPi> indeed
[2:57] <GabrialDestruir> I hope ramped up production doesn't mean lower QC
[2:57] <GabrialDestruir> .-.
[2:57] <PhonRaspPi> they've done a lot better than the OpenPandora guys did in the end
[2:58] <netman87> hmm does any of u know any nice'n'working way to stream video to RPi?
[2:58] <GabrialDestruir> SMB
[2:58] <GabrialDestruir> >.>
[2:58] <piless_> samba
[2:58] <netman87> i mean i want it like i click videofile on my windows laptop and RPi starting to show it on videoprojector
[2:58] <GabrialDestruir> Mhm
[2:58] <GabrialDestruir> Samba
[2:58] <GabrialDestruir> or SMB which is Samba

[3:07] <GabrialDestruir> Yea.
[3:07] <sraue> GabrialDestruir, yes he has recompiled the kernel too... OpenELEC is created from scratch instead take anything and strip this down
[3:07] <piless_> why not just let openelec mature? if you want super lightweight then go with open elec, if you want debian innards then raspbmc it is
[3:07] <GabrialDestruir> There was another phrase I was thinking of but that describes it fairly well
[3:08] <GabrialDestruir> I'm not against letting OpenELEC mature? It's good for what it does.

[3:20] <GabrialDestruir> I guess the only thing I could suggest is finding and trying out different dlna clients, they appear to do what you want.
[3:20] <PhonicUK> what dnla clients are there that work?
[3:20] <PhonicUK> other than whatevers built into xbmc
[3:20] <netman87> i dont really need shiny plasma effect on every item (like health bar, mana bar, potions, spells and on every door)
[3:21] <netman87> so it should not be too hard with SDL
[3:21] <PhonicUK> lbreakout2 is a good game
[3:21] <GabrialDestruir> Someone should build a 2D version of like WOW or something xD connects to the main servers... but displays everything in Pi friendly graphics? >.>
[3:21] <PhonicUK> :P
[3:22] <PhonicUK> i wish VALVe released the source to the original half life
[3:22] <netman87> something did come on my mind... i can put pulseaudio to stream all audio and play them sametime
[3:22] <GabrialDestruir> "Oh yea you have a great computer, but I can play MMO's in 2D"
[3:22] <piless_> PhonicUK: They can't because goldsrc was built off the quake engine
[3:23] <PhonicUK> thats the thing, quake is open source

[3:24] <piless_> they're not going to linux in the way you hope
[3:24] <netman87> haha how many years it have been and even now they are starting to talk about linux support
[3:24] <piless_> the next big valve project is their own console
[3:24] <PhonicUK> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YA9km4aHjzI
[3:24] <netman87> so how long it will take for them to support linux on arm :D

[3:25] <PhonicUK> the pi isn't fast enough for it
[3:25] <PhonicUK> but maybe for cube
[3:25] <netman87> oh but u can modify source to make it faster
[3:25] * piless_ is stiiiiiiill looking forward to black mesa source
[3:26] <GabrialDestruir> Well from the articles I've read it's not just they're devoting time to take things to linux for their own client, the articles talk of actual steam client for Linux.
[3:26] <PhonicUK> mmm, maybe TMW doesn't play nice
[3:26] <PhonicUK> it runs on my N900 though so it should...
[3:27] <PhonicUK> I'm a little worried that just playing an MP3/Ogg stream muches 30% of the CPU
[3:27] <GabrialDestruir> I mean there's no doubt they're working on SteamBox or w/e they call it, but I imagine their interface is going to be a bit more proprietary than the steam client
[3:27] <nid0> has anyone by any chance gotten iscsi going on the debian image?
[3:28] <piless_> PhonicUK: try legends of yore

[3:36] <piless_> mkopack: spoiler alert
[3:36] <GabrialDestruir> I still think Pi Domination would be an awesome game.
[3:37] <netman87> mkopack: haha, im just watching s02e08
[3:37] <GabrialDestruir> I'm only on book three -.-
[3:37] <netman87> book good enough? tv serie is coming out slow
[3:37] <netman87> so i would just change to book
[3:37] <GabrialDestruir> The books are more detailed.
[3:38] <piless_> the book is great
[3:38] <GabrialDestruir> But over all for the most of the first season it was just by the book.
[3:38] <piless_> but if you've already watched the show you'll find the first book quite boring
[3:38] <GabrialDestruir> Right up until the last couple episodes.
[3:38] <GabrialDestruir> But it was the small things they changed. Nothing major.
[3:38] <PhonicUK> ooooh
[3:38] <piless_> GabrialDestruir: the last couple episodes spilled over in the second book

[3:39] <PhonicUK> and I had that on my N900
[3:39] <GabrialDestruir> Well the things that bugged me were more the small things which they changed for no apparent reason that I happened to notice. I haven't seen season 2 yet though.

[4:53] <netman87> he lives pretty near so we do some trading sometimes :)
[4:53] <mkopack> a lot more than that...
[4:53] <netman87> ?
[4:54] <mkopack> They got their first huge production run batches in the last week, so they sent out something like 70,000 invites to order
[4:54] <mkopack> And Farnell is fulfilling like 50K of their orders this month as well
[4:54] <netman87> oh yeah my numbers arent so right :D just something i have picked up from irc
[4:55] <mkopack> Basically they both said they'd have everything that was ordered or "registered for interest" by the end of the Feb29th release day shipped out by the end of this month
[4:55] <mkopack> And evyerthing else that was ordered or registered for interest by mid April shipped by end of June
[4:55] <mkopack> That's a LOT of orders
[4:55] <netman87> yeah its pretty much
[4:56] <netman87> they would just send me few of them to keep others waiting for longer

[4:59] <mkopack> yeah, it's VERY hit or miss with the Class 10s right now. Honestly, if you want PERFORMANCE, get a small SD, and then use a powered hub and external USB HD (or in my case external USB SSD.. damn near impossible to find a small 2.5": external HD these days. Everything around here is 500+GB and $100+???)

[5:09] <mkopack> They were each $59 before the rebates and credit
[5:10] <mkopack> But the rebates will take them down to $29 and $49, and then the $30 credit off that, so < $50 for both total

[5:32] <mkopack> where in USA? did you do ground shipping?
[5:32] <mkopack> Mine went from Newark to Atlanta, GA and I got it in like 4 days after it was said it shipped
[5:32] <Ben64> california, thought there was only one shipping option
[5:32] <mkopack> nah there were a couple different ones
[5:32] <mkopack> I did ground cheapest
[5:33] <Ben64> Carrier Service: E14 UPS GROUND
[5:33] <mkopack> I'd say to California you're looking at around 5-6 business days max
[5:33] <Ben64> cool
[5:33] <Ben64> faster than RS then
[5:33] <Ben64> and RS let me pay for it 8 days ago

[9:21] <gordonDrogon> http://gotofdn.org/
[9:21] <gordonDrogon> not a lot of her blog about it though.
[9:21] <simonlc> The only thing I know about girls is that they go to bars and get hit on by creepy men
[9:22] <gordonDrogon> ???
[9:23] <simonlc> that's the only thing I know about girls, I was just letting you know
[9:23] <gordonDrogon> ok...
[9:23] <gordonDrogon> maybe you need to get out more ;-)
[9:23] <simonlc> but
[9:24] <simonlc> but
[9:24] <Gadgetoid_Air> Girls, on computers? What wizardry is this!
[9:24] <simonlc> linux and anime are on the computer
[9:24] <DaQatz> Well, they like toilet seats down for some reason.
[9:24] <simonlc> interesting, I'm writing that down.

[9:24] <gordonDrogon> ah well. I discovered girls and computers round about the same time.
[9:25] <DaQatz> Computers won?
[9:25] <gordonDrogon> that was quite a number of years ago.
[9:25] <gordonDrogon> a balance was struck.
[9:25] <DaQatz> LIES
[9:25] <DaQatz> There can be no balence between woman and computers!
[9:26] <GabrialDestruir_> Sure there can...
[9:26] <gordonDrogon> I only got maried 8 years ago though...
[9:27] <GabrialDestruir_> You either get a woman who's equally into computers..... or a woman who supports your computer habits
[9:27] <GabrialDestruir_> Either way? Balance is struck.
[9:27] <gordonDrogon> well - my wife is an intersting case. She sees computers as tools. So she as a Linux desktop, Android phones and tablets.
[9:27] <Gadgetoid_Air> It's grand parents and computers that's the typical clash of the titans
[9:27] <gordonDrogon> but she's not a programmer.
[9:28] <gordonDrogon> Some years back I did teach my 94 year old grandfather-in-law how to use a computer to write letters as his handwriting was failing him.
[9:28] <Gadgetoid_Air> Wow, 94 is an impressive number!

[9:28] <gordonDrogon> he died about 3 years back, but while he didn't understand in the nuts & bolts he could use a computer reasonably well.
[9:29] <SStrife> what's the advantage of using aptitude instead of apt-get to install things?
[9:29] <gordonDrogon> I had to find a sort of joystick-like mouse for him to use and make the screen really big...
[9:29] <gordonDrogon> SStrife, wish I knew... I've always used apt-get and I still use dselect ...
[9:30] <SStrife> it is a mystery...
[9:30] <Gadgetoid_Air> My wife teaches adults, who have somehow been under a rock the last 2o years, how to use computers
[9:30] <gordonDrogon> I think if someone is keen then they'll want to learn.
[9:30] <SStrife> but a lot of people i know, and have spoken to, swear by aptitude
[9:30] <SStrife> but i just dont see the difference
[9:30] <SStrife> and apt-get is slightly shorter to type
[9:30] <Gadgetoid_Air> alias? :D I use apt-get
[9:31] <Gadgetoid_Air> I have no idea what aptitude actually *is*, it doesn't do anything different does it?
[9:31] <gordonDrogon> Gadgetoid_Air, I was at a fund raising 'do' last night where the monies were going to a local school who were teching young adults to read/write. Shocking statistics that 80% of people in prison can't read/write, and some 15% of school leavers @16 can't read/write...

[9:32] <KrnlPanic> is gordonDrogon making fun of me? I can't read what he wrote...
[9:32] <KrnlPanic> ;P
[9:32] <Gadgetoid_Air> gordonDrogon: our standards of education are dropping through the floor, as our irrational fear of our children being a little upset grows year on year
[9:32] <gordonDrogon> http://pthree.org/2007/08/12/aptitude-vs-apt-get
[9:32] <Gadgetoid_Air> Can't make people learn, you might hurt them/their feelings...awww
[9:33] <gordonDrogon> I have strong feelings, but am not in a position to do much about it - age and lack of suitable teaching qualifications.
[9:34] <gordonDrogon> aptitude looks like a better swiss army knife to dpkg, dselect and apt-get.
[9:34] <simonlc> I don't like how aptitude trys to keep it's own output clean
[9:34] <Gadgetoid_Air> It always bothers me that I can't "apt-get search" but I don't lose any sleep over it :D
[9:35] <SStrife> hm, yeah
[9:35] <SStrife> but like 99% of times you're going apt-get install
[9:35] <SStrife> which seems identical to aptitude install
[9:36] <gordonDrogon> Gadgetoid_Air, apt-cache search ... but yes - why a separate command?
[9:37] <simonlc> pacman > apt
[9:39] <SStrife> i found an old CD in my basement today
[9:39] <SStrife> it has Slackware Linux 3.5 on it
[9:39] <gordonDrogon> :)
[9:40] <SStrife> Linux 2.0.something
[9:40] <gordonDrogon> My first Linux was shipped from the UK to the US (I was working in the US at the time) on a Sun DC150 tape...
[9:40] <SStrife> i want to install it in a VM or something
[9:40] <simonlc> dude
[9:40] <simonlc> SStrife: me too rofl
[9:40] <gordonDrogon> Loaded it onto a sun workstation, created the 5 boot floppes, booted a PC with them, and NFS mounted the tape contents to finish the install.
[9:41] <simonlc> I'm packing my stuff and found this linux developer's resource disks
[9:41] <simonlc> from 1994
[9:41] <SStrife> nice
[9:41] <gordonDrogon> I think it was the first SLS distro.
[9:41] <simonlc> slackware with linux 1.1.54
[9:41] <SStrife> brb
[9:41] <simonlc> sls is on here too
[9:41] <simonlc> and debian beta 0.91
[9:41] <gordonDrogon> :)
[9:41] <gordonDrogon> Ahhh 0.91.
[9:41] <gordonDrogon> Yes, I moved to that after SLS ...
[9:42] <gordonDrogon> Or was it 0.91r6 or something...
[9:42] <simonlc> it even comes with doom
[9:42] <simonlc> I should try and boot these up one day
[9:43] <gordonDrogon> it might not work on a new graphics card...
[9:43] <Gadgetoid_Air> Ah, I remember back in the days of dabbling with linux, the sheer terror as I tried to dynamically resize the partitions on the family computer
[9:43] <simonlc> I actually haven't been using linux for that long, only started using it last year
[9:43] <gordonDrogon> and only use an ne2000 ISA ethernet card
[9:43] <gordonDrogon> none of this PCI nonsense :)
[9:44] <simonlc> I have an increadible amount of old hardware
[9:44] <SStrife> i have a decent amount of oldish stuff, most of it set up for use
[9:44] <SStrife> a 486 with half a dozen sound cards
[9:44] <SStrife> a dual Pentium 200 MMX box
[9:44] <GabrialDestruir_> I need better Disk names than "Big Storage" and "Bigger Storage"
[9:44] <gordonDrogon> My background is Unix from 30+ years ago - pdp's, Sun's (with a spot of HP) so Linux was a natural choice, although I did a lot with BSDi and FreeBSD..
[9:44] <GabrialDestruir_> xD
[9:45] <SStrife> a Mac Quadra 700
[9:45] <SStrife> my old hardware is all for gaming
[9:45] <gordonDrogon> so I've never really gotten into the Win/Mac worlds ...
[9:45] <SStrife> so mainframe/unixy stuff is not much use
[9:45] <Gadgetoid_Air> gordonDrogon: Mac is just a successful desktop linux :D
[9:45] <simonlc> same here SStrife
[9:46] <simonlc> recently though I've lost interest in video games
[9:47] <SStrife> only play a little of the new stuff
[9:47] <simonlc> mac isn't really linux though
[9:47] <SStrife> but my retro games collection is pretty big :)
[9:47] <simonlc> wait, they make new games?
[9:47] <SStrife> mac is Mach
[9:47] <SStrife> Mach/Darwin
[9:47] <Gadgetoid_Air> simonlc: once you install Brew, it's damn near close
[9:47] <simonlc> don't they have an app store in osx yet?
[9:48] <SStrife> they do
[9:48] <simonlc> app-store install fartnoises
[9:48] <Gadgetoid_Air> The Mac App store??? ha, everything is rigorously sandboxed
[9:48] <SStrife> Only if you want to use that distribution model though
[9:48] <Gadgetoid_Air> You'd thing the point of an App store is that content could be curated and not *need* to be sandboxed
[9:48] <SStrife> You're still free to roll your own .pkg or .dmg files and share as you see fit
[9:49] <Gadgetoid_Air> But, nope, Apple trap every App distributed by the App Store in an impenetrable walled garden of fail
[9:49] <simonlc> the main thing I dislike about osx is the DE
[9:49] <simonlc> so basically there's no point to me using it
[9:49] <gordonDrogon> Actually I was an Apple fan for a while - the Apple II was the first proper micro I used (Although the HP9800 was before that, I guess).
[9:50] <gordonDrogon> and I liked the early Macs, but when they started screwing things down then they fell out of favour..
[9:50] <Gadgetoid_Air> I use Apple because it's not Windows and it's not Linux
[9:50] <SStrife> I don't use the App Store
[9:50] <Ben64> osx is like the bad parts of windows mixed with the bad parts of linux
[9:50] <Ben64> i don't get why anyone likes it
[9:50] <gordonDrogon> I bought myself an old Apple II recently too: http://unicorn.drogon.net/lode.jpg
[9:50] <haltdef> because macs are very pretty
[9:50] <SStrife> that's a typical nerd trope.
[9:50] <gordonDrogon> when I was planning/testing my BASIC - wanted to remember that old experience :)
[9:51] <SStrife> "I don't like it, how could anyone else?"
[9:51] <haltdef> also far more expensive so they have to be better
[9:51] <haltdef> right?
[9:51] <Ben64> macs are not pretty enough to cost 2-3x as much
[9:51] <Gadgetoid_Air> Ben64: I'd say it's the exact opposite
[9:51] <simonlc> that's a really cool looking computer gordonDrogon
[9:51] <Ben64> SStrife: thats not even what i said
[9:51] <gordonDrogon> simonlc, it's a really old computer too :)
[9:51] <haltdef> I'm sure osx is lovely but there's not a chance in hell I'm paying that much for a PC
[9:51] <haltdef> YOU HEARD ME, I CALLED A MAC A PC
[9:51] <simonlc> kinda wish I had a monitor like that to hook up to my raspi
[9:51] <haltdef> :|
[9:51] <RITRedbeard> Raspberry Pi is about to get hurt.
[9:51] <gordonDrogon> simonlc, 280x192 graphics :)
[9:52] <Ben64> haltdef: mac is a pc, so you're correct
[9:52] <Gadgetoid_Air> haltdef: that might have something to do with the fact it is a PC :D
[9:52] <haltdef> I know!
[9:52] <RITRedbeard> everyone is jumping on this ARM bandwagon, man.

[9:52] <haltdef> when I was buying a new laptop I taken a peek at what a macbook pro would cost me
[9:52] <Gadgetoid_Air> What can I say, I like a laptop I can pick up from the corner without it snapping in half :D
[9:52] <gordonDrogon> and I'm about to use it to connect up my new Pi...
[9:52] <haltdef> ??1k more than the dell I ended up with for ever so slightly better specs
[9:52] <RITRedbeard> $999?
[9:52] <Ben64> $????
[9:52] <RITRedbeard> IBM Refurb
[9:53] <RITRedbeard> T61p
[9:53] <haltdef> same gen cpu at a slightly higher clockspeed, same amount of ram only slightly faster, slightly bigger hdd
[9:53] <haltdef> for a sodding grand more
[9:53] <simonlc> nice, I love the style of graphics they display
[9:53] <Gadgetoid_Air> haltdef: buying a Mac is like buying a house; you get on the "property" ladder and can expect to sell your old computer for about 5x what a comparable "PC" laptop would cost
[9:53] <simonlc> one color blurry
[9:53] <haltdef> I never sell old computers
[9:54] <Ben64> old computers don't sell for anything
[9:54] <Ben64> and i can pick up my laptop from the corner with no ill effects
[9:54] <Gadgetoid_Air> I sold my clapped out old, old style MacBook Pro for ~??600, got a student discount and a free iPod which I sold for a further ~200??? net price of upgrading to new MacBook Pro ~??400
[9:54] <gordonDrogon> Hm. need a PSU for new Pi...
[9:55] <Ben64> cell phone charger
[9:55] <simonlc> the trick is to sell computer parts when they are still sorta new
[9:55] <SStrife> I like my MBP
[9:55] <gordonDrogon> yea, must have a few kicking about.
[9:55] <SStrife> superior panel to similarly priced clones,
[9:55] <SStrife> superior trackpad
[9:55] <SStrife> aluminium everything
[9:55] <SStrife> trip-proof power connection
[9:55] <Ben64> costs almost 3x as much as a comparable "PC"
[9:55] <SStrife> all the little things
[9:55] <SStrife> did you not see
[9:55] <SStrife> similarly priced
[9:56] <Gadgetoid_Air> SStrife: +1 on the trackpad, absolutely blows everything awa
[9:56] <simonlc> yeah the new macs are extremely sexy
[9:56] <Ben64> similarly priced?
[9:56] <Ben64> so... like... 3 laptops?
[9:56] <simonlc> I'd still just end up installing windows ore linux on it though
[9:56] <SStrife> maybe $200-$300 more

[9:56] <gordonDrogon> hm. Jawbone charger - 550ma... keep looking..
[9:56] <SStrife> i could have bought a $1300 clone laptop
[9:57] <SStrife> with better graphics, faster CPU, etc
[9:57] <simonlc> otherwise I'm a lenovo fan
[9:57] <Gadgetoid_Air> Right, off I go! ttfn, it's sunny outside!
[9:57] <gordonDrogon> htc charger - 1A!
[9:57] <SStrife> which would have zero impact on what i use it for
[9:57] * Gadgetoid_Air (~gadgetoid@cpc6-nrwh10-2-0-cust61.4-4.cable.virginmedia.com) Quit (Quit: Gadgetoid_Air)
[9:57] <SStrife> or I could pay that differential and have a better product in other aspects
[9:57] <Ben64> you know what your macbook pro is missing
[9:57] <simonlc> or, you could have bought TWO lenovos
[9:58] <Ben64> mouse buttons
[9:58] <SStrife> lol
[9:58] <simonlc> it has click
[9:58] <SStrife> lol lol lol
[9:58] <RITRedbeard> buy old T43
[9:58] <Ben64> http://images.apple.com/macbookpro/images/overview_gallery2_20111024.png
[9:58] <Ben64> 0 button
[9:58] <simonlc> it's under the pad
[9:58] <SStrife> you push wherever your finger is
[9:58] <simonlc> you can still press it
[9:58] <Ben64> not the same
[9:58] <SStrife> click
[9:59] <SStrife> you push with two fingers, right click
[9:59] <simonlc> that's pretty awesome, I thought it was just the bottom
[9:59] <GabrialDestruir_> I love 3.0 speeds xD
[9:59] <SStrife> you drag with two fingers, scroll
[9:59] <SStrife> pinch zoom
[9:59] <Ben64> totally not the same
[9:59] <Ben64> sometimes you need a button
[9:59] <SStrife> three finger drag = expose
[10:00] <SStrife> but most of the time you dont, it's a decent trade-off IMO
[10:00] * KrnlPanic wonders if it's going to be possible to port Windows Mobile onto his R-Pi when he gets it
[10:00] <gordonDrogon> and Pi2 springs into life.
[10:00] * Ben64 slaps KrnlPanic
[10:00] <shirro> I love my old macbook. big trackpad is just one reason. I really wish I could buy something similar without paying software tax and with rock solid linux drivers including decent power management.
[10:00] <huene> why would anyone want windows on a pi?
[10:00] <RITRedbeard> if you want HTPC/XMBC go here http://liliputing.com/2012/05/mk802-74-android-pc-on-a-stick-shown-off-on-video.html
[10:00] <RITRedbeard> leave our pis alone!
[10:00] <KrnlPanic> because I'm not you huene
[10:01] <haltdef> WM would need microsoft's help
[10:01] <GabrialDestruir_> Bah, stop throwing a fit because pople want Pi for HTPC
[10:01] <huene> well, that is of course a very well argumented and rational reason
[10:01] <GabrialDestruir_> That's just childish.
[10:01] <Ben64> WM is bad and you should feel bad
[10:01] <haltdef> if the pi used an SoC that was used by a WM phone out there there may be a chance, but it isn't
[10:02] <SStrife> i had a look, there really isn't
[10:02] <KrnlPanic> Why is my face stinging? Oh.. Thanks Ben64!
[10:02] <RITRedbeard> But that has everything you need for HTPC
[10:02] <RITRedbeard> http://liliputing.com/2012/05/mk802-74-android-pc-on-a-stick-shown-off-on-video.html
[10:02] <Ben64> but costs more than pi
[10:03] <SStrife> there are WM6 devices with ARMv6, that's about as close as you get.
[10:03] <johang> mk802 has better decoding support than raspberry pi
[10:03] <Ben64> wm6 is so olde though
[10:03] <SStrife> oh hell...... all the ice in my coke melted, now the bottom 20% of my drink is just brown water... :(
[10:04] <GabrialDestruir_> I've been using my Pi the past few days as a HTPC and it's been doing great, wth should I switch to something else?
[10:04] <haltdef> ew
[10:04] <RITRedbeard> don't do drugs SStrife
[10:04] <SStrife> lol
[10:04] <SStrife> ice ice baby
[10:04] <RITRedbeard> GabrialDestruir_, I'm going to bitch about it because people who just want to plug it into the TV are missing the point.
[10:04] <RITRedbeard> supposed to be hobbyiest device
[10:04] <RITRedbeard> do something with it
[10:04] <RITRedbeard> and because the commerical industry has no product that would be awesome(er) for education
[10:05] <GabrialDestruir_> Suppose to be and actuality are completely different things....
[10:05] <Ben64> i'm going to do something with it - plug it into my tv
[10:05] <RITRedbeard> and I have no investment capital
[10:05] <Ben64> try and stop me!
[10:05] <simonlc> http://www.pugo.org/collection/computer/170/
[10:05] <simonlc> check this thing out
[10:05] <RITRedbeard> but the Allwinner A10 is much better product
[10:05] <simonlc> it's even got a mechanical keyboard
[10:05] <simonlc> cherry mx blue switches
[10:05] <GabrialDestruir_> Dude.... >.>
[10:05] <RITRedbeard> does it?
[10:05] <GabrialDestruir_> Rig a Pi up in one of those xD
[10:05] <Ben64> RITRedbeard: $65 all chinese vs $35 and english
[10:05] <Ben64> rpi wins
[10:06] <RITRedbeard> English?
[10:06] <RITRedbeard> What?
[10:06] <GabrialDestruir_> Technically it's english design...
[10:06] <Ben64> you know, the language
[10:06] <GabrialDestruir_> chinese built
[10:06] <GabrialDestruir_> xD
[10:06] * RITRedbeard resists urge to palm his face.
[10:06] <GabrialDestruir_> But frankly...

[10:06] <GabrialDestruir> Bah
[10:07] <GabrialDestruir> there .-.
[10:07] <simonlc> http://starringthecomputer.com/computer.php?c=243
[10:07] <simonlc> haha awesome
[10:07] <GabrialDestruir> Frankly... if people want to spend 35 bucks on a Pi as an HTPC that's their choice.
[10:07] <SStrife> i have one of those
[10:07] <RITRedbeard> and kids go without Pi
[10:08] <SStrife> i added a SCSI card, a 4.3GB HDD, and a Sound Blaster 1.5
[10:08] <Ben64> i'd like to use it for other things too, maybe an emulator would be cool
[10:08] * Da|Mummy (~Veki@cpe-76-190-200-98.neo.res.rr.com) Quit (Quit: Happy Now?)
[10:08] <johang> GabrialDestruir: think of it like this -- the HTPC crowd is beta testing the kids' hardware and software.
[10:08] <Ben64> i'm sure it could play nes and snes
[10:08] <RITRedbeard> I'd like to see a power efficient version
[10:08] <GabrialDestruir> How many children do you actually know of that ordered a Pi at launch with expectations to get and play with it? The current buying/production has NO affect what so ever on the educational release for the children.
[10:08] <simonlc> a t3100/20 SStrife ?
[10:09] <RITRedbeard> Schools haven't ordered anything.
[10:09] <SStrife> Ben64: it does run those quite nicely,
[10:09] <RITRedbeard> I'm not going to have this argument with you.
[10:09] <SStrife> even runs DOSBos and ScummVM well
[10:09] <Ben64> SStrife: already?
[10:09] <Ben64> i haven't kept up with stuff since i don't have my pi yet
[10:09] <SStrife> simonlc: Yeah, a T3200 actually, but physically nearly identical
[10:09] <RITRedbeard> There are cool uses but the circuit design prevents a few.
[10:09] <RITRedbeard> Assuming if what I heard about power draw is correct.
[10:09] <SStrife> Ben64: It's a linux box, it will run anything you can compile
[10:10] <Ben64> but its arm
[10:10] <SStrife> Ben64: Running them well or not is another question ;)
[10:10] <Ben64> most stuff is for x86
[10:10] <Ben64> and emulators are pretty strange creatures
[10:10] <SStrife> source code is platform agnostic
[10:10] <SStrife> unless it contains assembler
[10:10] <gordonDrogon> Ben64, most stuff is not written in x86 assembler.
[10:11] * wiiguy (~fake@unaffiliated/wiiguy) has joined #raspberrypi
[10:11] * PiBot sets mode +v wiiguy
[10:11] <gordonDrogon> the biggest issue will be with proprietary systems who're not prepared to release source or re-compile for ARM.
[10:11] <RITRedbeard> That's the Foundation's biggest problem.
[10:11] <gordonDrogon> however, there's very very few things like that where you'd actually want to run it on a Pi.
[10:11] <simonlc> high level rograming languages like C abstract the cpu away so you can usually run the software on any archetecture
[10:11] <GabrialDestruir> Bah... this crowd is up in arms over sill stuff.... just this morning I got yelled at BECAUSE I was tinkering with my Pi
[10:11] <RITRedbeard> They don't understand Open Source, it is an end rather than a means.
[10:11] <gordonDrogon> the stuff I see is like very big chip-design packages, pcb layout, etc.
[10:11] <RITRedbeard> They're shooting themselves in the foot.
[10:12] <SStrife> simonlc: Getting the SCSI gear in there was fun, I had make a space for the cable to run from the expansion card area to where the HDD lives
[10:12] * KrnlPanic wonders when he's going to et his Pi.. :(
[10:12] <gordonDrogon> no-one is going to port a simulation package to the Pi when it needs 32GB of RAM on a high-end x86 patform...
[10:12] <Ben64> you should eat it whenever you want
[10:13] <simonlc> do you by any chance have a picture of its insides SStrife ?
[10:13] <SStrife> no, not handy
[10:13] <SStrife> I can probably do some up tomorrow though :)
[10:13] <simonlc> :D

[10:16] <SStrife> i was really enjoying it
[10:17] <gordonDrogon> SStrife, it's just coke... get something proper - like coffee!
[10:17] <SStrife> ungh
[10:17] <SStrife> my coffee machine is broken
[10:17] <SStrife> it's probably just the fuse

[10:18] <gordonDrogon> yea, or a french press.

[10:18] <SStrife> i dont have a press

[10:20] <gordonDrogon> actually that was last years office, I've re-arranged it since then.
[10:21] <simonlc> nice
[10:21] <SStrife> mostly because you have a fireplace in your office
[10:21] <simonlc> I need more desks like that
[10:21] <KrnlPanic> Did you put the boxes somewhere else?
[10:21] <SStrife> i have to use a reverse cycle aircon
[10:21] <SStrife> dries the air
[10:21] <SStrife> expensive to run
[10:21] <SStrife> no ambient glow
[10:21] <gordonDrogon> the fire? No - We have lots of wood mostly free.

[10:22] <SStrife> if I had a slow combustion heater, i'd be set, my folks have a decent size property, all the wood I'd need
[10:23] <simonlc> http://i.imgur.com/T9Y3E.jpg
[10:23] <SStrife> i need AC in summer here, because the humidity is crazy
[10:23] <simonlc> that's my 'office'
[10:23] <gordonDrogon> I mostly burn the boxes, the they produce a lot of ash.
[10:23] <gordonDrogon> Hm. I can see your desktop... you have space on it ... and under it... what's wrong?
[10:24] <gordonDrogon> the only musical instrument I have is a didgeridoo.
[10:24] <simonlc> that's after I cleaned it, it never stays like that for long
[10:24] <gordonDrogon> :)
[10:25] <shirro> I took my fireplace out and knocked the surrounding brickwork down with a sledge hammer so I would have more room for bookcases. Is only cold enough to use it a few days a year, too much effort to clean.
[10:25] <simonlc> right now I have pi stuff everywhere and all my tools on the floor cause I'm packing
[10:25] <SStrife> ah
[10:26] <SStrife> i finally found a panorama-stitching program that doesn't kill quality
[10:26] <simonlc> i use photoshop for that :D
[10:26] <KrnlPanic> I use my HTC Doubleshot for that
[10:26] <simonlc> unless you take really straight pictures, it turns to shit
[10:27] <SStrife> i dont have the patience to do panoramas in photoshop
[10:27] <simonlc> it's automated

[10:30] <simonlc> interesting
[10:30] <SStrife> couldn't even hear the reverse thrust
[10:30] <simonlc> I love the wings on it, it definitely looks like an upgrade the some of the older boeings

[10:30] <SStrife> despite being able to easily hear the reverse thrust on little 737's and A320s

[10:39] <simonlc> afaik
[10:39] <RITRedbeard> compile it for pi

[10:46] <gordonDrogon> my Farnell one came yesterday and my RS one will be here soon... a week or 2 at most.
[10:46] <KrnlPanic> Yeah, But I'd rather support the Raspberri Pi foundation
[10:46] <simonlc> I got mine from rs for registering my interest
[10:46] <RITRedbeard> They're inept.
[10:46] <RITRedbeard> And I'm being kind in my language.
[10:47] <RITRedbeard> They don't support open source software and they don't know how to support education or deliver product since they are a business. (fact)
[10:47] <RITRedbeard> So I would not support them at this time.
[10:47] <gordonDrogon> I am supporting the foundation.
[10:47] <simonlc> ^ I really like raspi because of that
[10:47] * KrnlPanic agrees with RITRedbeard
[10:47] <RITRedbeard> Until we get open source drivers for PowerVR.
[10:47] <gordonDrogon> all 3 were bought via legit. channels which puts money their way.
[10:47] <RITRedbeard> Which is probably never.
[10:48] <RITRedbeard> Or until people decide to slowly and painfully reverse engineer the binary blobs.
[10:48] <simonlc> how much was your ebay pi?
[10:48] <gordonDrogon> ?105.
[10:48] <RITRedbeard> But Mali has driver work in progress.
[10:48] <simonlc> wow you really wanted one
[10:48] <gordonDrogon> While I write and support open source, I'm not in a real hurry to pursue them for source for the binary blobs. I think it's just a distraction at this point.
[10:49] <gordonDrogon> Yes, I really wanted one, and that was a price I was willing to pay.
[10:49] <RITRedbeard> KrnlPanic: http://liliputing.com/2012/05/74-pc-on-a-stick-features-allwinner-a10-cpu-android-4-0.html
[10:49] <gordonDrogon> RITRedbeard, they're nice little things, but not Raspberry Pi's.
[10:49] <RITRedbeard> php
[10:49] <RITRedbeard> They're better.
[10:49] <RITRedbeard> They're 110% faster clock for clock or something like that.
[10:49] <gordonDrogon> there are lots and lots of "nice little things", but none of them are Pi's.
[10:50] <RITRedbeard> ok so you're a zealot
[10:50] <RITRedbeard> gotcha
[10:50] <gordonDrogon> so? They're still not Pi's.
[10:50] <gordonDrogon> I'm someone with limited resources and time. I can only concentrate on a small number of projects at a time and I've devided that the Pi is one of them - for now.
[10:51] <RITRedbeard> Oh, okay.
[10:51] <RITRedbeard> Well, I'm sure they will be as exciting as your Arduino projects and your BASIC Stamp projects before that.
[10:51] <gordonDrogon> There are dozens of alternatives - e.g. anothe system I've done a lot with is the ALIX boards. I've made little PBXs and routers out of them. Great little boxes.
[10:51] * RITRedbeard shrugs.
[10:51] <gordonDrogon> and in some way superior to the Pi, but also not a Pi.
[10:51] <gordonDrogon> also more expensive )-:
[10:51] <gordonDrogon> but they're x86...
[10:52] <gordonDrogon> AMD Geode processor @ 500MHz. Feels a lot faster than the Pi, but I've never benchmarked it.
[10:52] <RITRedbeard> Eben lied, children died (without proper education).
[10:52] <gordonDrogon> The Pi is here, it'll be here for a few years at least, so lets make the most of it.
[10:53] <RITRedbeard> Moore's Law!
[10:53] <RITRedbeard> O_O
[10:53] <KrnlPanic> The latest email: Dear Thomas,
[10:53] <KrnlPanic> We're excited to inform you that your Raspberry Pi will be delivered in an upcoming shipment beginning the week of May 29th.
[10:54] <RITRedbeard> I haven't even received an email.
[10:54] <KrnlPanic> o_O That's this Tuesday!
[10:54] <RITRedbeard> Probably just going to get an A10 and reverse engineer the blob myself
[10:54] <gordonDrogon> I even looked at these recently:
[10:54] <gordonDrogon> http://www.aliexpress.com/product-fm/308349006-Free-shipping-7-inch-Wifi-laptop-Android-2-2-Wholesales-Dropship-netbook-4GB-Capacity-wholesalers.html
[10:54] <RITRedbeard> or help the guys working on the Mali
[10:54] <gordonDrogon> I mean, 2 whole laptops for under ?100! keyboard, screen, the lot!
[10:55] <gordonDrogon> KrnlPanic, hurrah :) That's Farnell?
[10:55] * esotera (~jamie@94-193-222-75.zone7.bethere.co.uk) has joined #raspberrypi
[10:55] * PiBot sets mode +v esotera
[10:56] <gordonDrogon> those little laptops would run my BASIC perfectly. Imagine having a self-comtained micro like that running BASIC again :)
[10:56] <gordonDrogon> And I may buy a couple yet, just for fun.
[10:57] <KrnlPanic> gordonDrogon: That's Newark
[10:57] <gordonDrogon> KrnlPanic, ah, ok. IS that RS in the US?
[10:57] <KrnlPanic> gordonDrogon: *shrug*
[10:57] <KrnlPanic> LoL
[10:58] <KrnlPanic> I'm not sure really, when I got the email that I could order one I was so excited I just started hitting buttons
[10:58] <KrnlPanic> Element14
[10:58] <gordonDrogon> KrnlPanic, Oh no - Newark is Farnell/element 14.
[10:58] <gordonDrogon> they ship by 2nd class letter post over here, so good luck ...
[10:59] <gordonDrogon> hey - isn't it middle of the night time in the US? go to bed :)
[10:59] <RITRedbeard> gordonDrogon, I'm not a hater, I wish the drivers were more accessable
[10:59] <RITRedbeard> it would be great to design games with RPi in mind
[10:59] <RITRedbeard> and less power consumption
[10:59] <RITRedbeard> and better avaliability
[11:00] <KrnlPanic> LoLL.. Wish I could gordonDrogon.. Stuck at work until noon
[11:00] <gordonDrogon> RITRedbeard, I do too - but who has the time and resources? I did once work for a company producing a massively parallel GPU and supercomputer grid onna chip thing - stupidly complex to program. Best left to the experts...
[11:00] <gordonDrogon> as for games - just use the published APIs - that way the game will run on other Linux platforms, and even Win/Mac.
[11:01] <gordonDrogon> If quake 3 is fast enough using the published APIs ...
[11:01] <KrnlPanic> Quake3 will run on the Pi?
[11:01] <simonlc> it does
[11:01] <gordonDrogon> it appears to do so.
[11:01] <simonlc> 60fps
[11:01] <simonlc> 4xaa 1080p
[11:02] <RITRedbeard> turn off vsync
[11:02] <RITRedbeard> ?
[11:02] <simonlc> can't
[11:02] <KrnlPanic> Not bad for a $35 device
[11:02] <simonlc> afaik, vsync and aa can't be turned off
[11:02] <RITRedbeard> :(
[11:02] <gordonDrogon> what's 'aa' ?
[11:02] <SStrife> simonlc: Orlando Int'l has a monorail too
[11:02] <RITRedbeard> anti-aliasing
[11:02] <simonlc> anti-aliasing
[11:02] <gordonDrogon> ah, ok.
[11:02] <SStrife> and Reagan, I think.
[11:03] <SStrife> i passed through so many, it was all a bit of a blur
[11:03] <simonlc> haha I was just kidding
[11:03] <gordonDrogon> Hm. raspbian is marginally slower at compiling than Debian. I wonder if thats because it's a newer compiler, so doing more.
[11:03] <KrnlPanic> uBuntu will run on the Pi?
[11:03] <shirro> which gcc version?
[11:03] <SStrife> our airports in Aus are all tiny my comparison
[11:04] <SStrife> by*
[11:04] <gordonDrogon> gcc (Debian 4.4.5-8) 4.4.5
[11:04] <simonlc> ubuntu doesn't support the old version of arm used in the raspi KrnlPanic
[11:04] <gordonDrogon> gcc (Debian 4.6.3-1.1+rpi2) 4.6.3
[11:05] <Viperfang> Morning all
[11:05] <gordonDrogon> What Ho!
[11:05] <Viperfang> tennis racket
[11:06] <shirro> you have 4.4, 4.5, 4.6 and 4.7 to play with. some things are slower. I think some openssl tests were slower but might be due to different versions. Also probably has some more secure library/compiler settings
[11:06] <gordonDrogon> Hm. I thought 4.7 was there. wonder why it's defaulted to 4.6.
[11:06] <Elfish> i cloned a git repo. how to update if there were changes made?
[11:06] <simonlc> git pull?
[11:07] <nid0> anyone happen to have the arch image running atm and their pi handy?
[11:07] <simonlc> me
[11:07] <Elfish> simonlc thx
[11:07] <gordonDrogon> right time for a break.
[11:07] <shirro> clang is there as well but it can't find libs in /usr/lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/ so you have to mess around with things until it is fixed
[11:07] <gordonDrogon> laters.
[11:07] <simonlc> bb
[11:07] <nid0> could you check whether the kernel has iscsi_tcp either compiled in or as a module please?
[11:07] <simonlc> if you tell me how, yes
[11:08] <KrnlPanic> Welp, gonna go hide in the server room for about an hour and take a nap.. G'night all.. back leter
[11:08] <KrnlPanic> s/leter/later
[11:08] <SStrife> a friend at work got Pi to run with an NFS root
[11:08] <SStrife> that would be handy

[11:10] <nid0> simonlc: modprobe --list|grep iscsi
[11:10] <nid0> 2nd one
[11:11] <nid0> SStrife thats largely my plan as well but over iscsi rather than nfs, but the debian image has no iscsi in the kernel
[11:11] <simonlc> --list isn't an option
[11:11] <SStrife> would there be much of a difference, in practice?

[11:14] <ill1cit> what is XBMC
[11:14] <simonlc> media player software
[11:15] <ill1cit> ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh ok
[11:15] <SStrife> it would be accessible on a socket, i imagine
[11:15] <ill1cit> no idea does it have a api?

[11:16] <simonlc> I need to open a franchise called starburger and sell cafinated burgers
[11:17] <GabrialDestruir> Just open a place called "Starshot" you go in and buy a shot with the legal limit of caffiene allowed in a dring
[11:17] <GabrialDestruir> drink*
[11:17] <GabrialDestruir> just like liquid caffiene

[11:18] <SStrife> that's some minority report stuff right there
[11:18] <ill1cit> wtf
[11:18] <ill1cit> is that for mac?
[11:18] <GabrialDestruir> That and add in the visual sensor thing that allows you to control your computer via eye movements
[11:18] <SStrife> theyre using an Apple display
[11:19] <SStrife> but it doesn't say what OS it supports
[11:19] <esotera> it's for windows and mac, linux support is 'on the agenda'
[11:19] <ill1cit> thats f aweeeeesome!
[11:19] <GabrialDestruir> Yea sure...
[11:19] <ill1cit> i cant wait until everything has been invented
[11:19] <GabrialDestruir> If it actually works xD
[11:19] <ill1cit> ill be one happy panda
[11:19] <GabrialDestruir> There will always be something more to invent.

[11:20] <GabrialDestruir> I'm waiting for proper Computer Nueral Interfaces.
[11:20] <ill1cit> cyb0rg?
[11:20] <GabrialDestruir> Be able to do everything on my computer with a though.
[11:21] <GabrialDestruir> thought*
[11:21] <RITRedbeard> So is there any way for easy LVDS interface via MIPI or whatever that's on the Pi?
[11:21] <RITRedbeard> GabrialDestruir, I'm working towards that.
[11:21] <ill1cit> anyway back to 200mhz rasberry pi
[11:21] <piless> ill1cit: why is your rpi 200mhz?
[11:21] <RITRedbeard> sounds like you messed up
[11:21] <GabrialDestruir> It'd make programming significantly easier.
[11:21] <ill1cit> dunno isnt it 200mhz?
[11:21] <RITRedbeard> ...no?
[11:21] <ill1cit> i only scanned thru the website
[11:22] <RITRedbeard> do you have one?
[11:22] <ill1cit> no
[11:22] <ill1cit> not yet...
[11:22] <GabrialDestruir> Also with a direct neural interface you could save memories directly to harddrive.
[11:22] <piless> Mine was delivered.. but I won't be able to get to it for a week D:
[11:22] <GabrialDestruir> So you never forget Johnny Mnemonic style
[11:22] <GabrialDestruir> >.>
[11:22] <RITRedbeard> Not that crazy.
[11:22] <ill1cit> i spent my rpi on concert tickets -_-
[11:23] <piless> more than one concert ticket?
[11:23] <ill1cit> its a festival weekend
[11:23] <GabrialDestruir> I'm waiting for that day, the day we can download our entire conciousnesses into computers , because then we'll have AI's too
[11:24] <ill1cit> oh 700mhz
[11:24] <ill1cit> nice
[11:24] <RaYmAn> GabrialDestruir: and then we'll have computers that make human errors! :P
[11:24] <a7x> how many mA does rpi use in full?
[11:24] <RaYmAn> Wouldn't want that controlling anything important :P
[11:24] <piless> 700
[11:24] <a7x> (with both USB connected)
[11:24] <a7x> okay piless
[11:24] <GabrialDestruir> Actually....
[11:24] <ill1cit> i remember my brother had a AMD 700mhz with a gforce 256 or something
[11:24] <ill1cit> was so sick
[11:25] <ill1cit> this was 10+ years ago tho
[11:25] <SStrife> like a Duron or something?
[11:25] <ill1cit> ja
[11:25] <GabrialDestruir> considering they'd be AI's they'd still be errorless only except where human interaction was involved.
[11:25] <SStrife> nice
[11:25] <SStrife> my duron died
[11:25] <RITRedbeard> GabrialDestruir, not looking more into that futurely stuff
[11:25] <RITRedbeard> but more in tune with current technology
[11:25] <RITRedbeard> chorded keyboard
[11:25] <ill1cit> i had k6 466 or something at that time :D
[11:25] <RITRedbeard> monocular displays
[11:25] <RITRedbeard> wearable computer
[11:25] <SStrife> i bought a new heatsink, but didn't fit it properly, the cpu overheated and died
[11:25] <ill1cit> eish that sucks
[11:26] <ill1cit> u must always put new paste
[11:26] <SStrife> no, we used paste
[11:26] <SStrife> the heatsink wasn't sitting flat
[11:26] <GabrialDestruir> I'm waiting for someone to turn the Pi into a Vortex Manipulator type think.... cept without the vortex manipulation...
[11:26] <SStrife> it started smoking up
[11:26] <ill1cit> haha
[11:26] <ill1cit> white smoke?
[11:26] <ill1cit> like on a PSU
[11:26] <ill1cit> if u change voltage
[11:26] <SStrife> hm
[11:27] <SStrife> it was grey, i think
[11:27] <SStrife> it was a while ago
[11:27] <SStrife> obviously
[11:27] <ill1cit> remember running lan parties would fry 4-5 psu when we didnt connect earth to the dc
[11:27] <ill1cit> 4-5 out of 500 not too bad tho
[11:27] <ill1cit> haha good old days
[11:28] <ill1cit> when everyone was still dumb
[11:28] <SStrife> everyone is still dumb, there's just no shame now.

[11:30] <RITRedbeard> yes
[11:30] <simonlc> what aspect ratio is that even?
[11:30] <SStrife> netbook resolution
[11:30] <RITRedbeard> oh
[11:31] <RITRedbeard> I have no idea, it's standard for netbooks in 10.1" diag screen size
[11:31] <RITRedbeard> I miss 4:3
[11:31] <simonlc> it's sorta close to 5:3
[11:31] <simonlc> it's between 5:3 and 16:9
[11:34] <RITRedbeard> they can make 1366 x 768 panels that size
[11:34] <RITRedbeard> they just don't
[11:35] <RITRedbeard> I hate the concept or idea the industry thinks we view everything in widescreen resolutions
[11:35] <SStrife> alright, i have a Slackware 3.5.0 installation CD

[11:42] <SStrife> i use a model M on my main PC
[11:43] <simonlc> there's not even room for this on my desk
[11:43] <Gadgetoid_Air> GabrialDestruir: it was quite an adventure getting it running, but ultimately it took bootc's kernel
[11:43] <SStrife> i downgraded from a logitech G15
[11:43] <simonlc> more like upgraded
[11:43] <SStrife> i know right
[11:43] <simonlc> I shot my g15 with a paintball gun
[11:43] <Gadgetoid_Air> Your mileage may vary, but the stock Debian kernel for RPi lacked drivers for my generic MCE IR receiver 
[11:43] <GabrialDestruir> I had a G15
[11:43] <GabrialDestruir> it was great up until it died
[11:43] <GabrialDestruir> xD
[11:43] <SStrife> the spacebar on my G15 broke

[11:43] <GabrialDestruir> Sam already put LIRC and stuff in Raspbmc
[11:43] <SStrife> not the bar itself
[11:44] <GabrialDestruir> So all that is suppose to work.
[11:44] <GabrialDestruir> My cord got screwed up
[11:44] <SStrife> but one of those little lugs that the metal bar goes under
[11:44] <GabrialDestruir> that ticked me off.

[11:54] <GabrialDestruir> Not so much.
[11:54] <piless> everyone likes a bit of bondage
[11:54] <GabrialDestruir> There's a lot I can't do through the xbmc interface, it kind of sucks.
[11:54] <GabrialDestruir> On the other hand I don't imagine XBMC would run as well ontop of x-server or something
[11:55] <GabrialDestruir> I need a second Pi seriously xD

[11:56] <clonak> I need _a_ Pi. :/
[11:56] <piless> one for a minecraft server

[11:56] <GabrialDestruir> Then again.... I'm sure someone or another would complain because I didn't wait so the devs could work out all the kinks in Pi

[11:58] <raynerd> Hi Guys, Pi arrived this morning, can anyone suggest a suitable power supply I could buy in store (UK, e.g pc world, maplin... ??)
[11:58] <GabrialDestruir> Eh from the sounds of it, it was running surprisingly well.
[11:58] <SStrife> plus it's java
[11:58] <SStrife> oh ok
[11:58] <SStrife> weird
[11:58] <SStrife> hmm
[11:58] <SStrife> VirtualBox won't accept a gzipped disk image
[11:59] <GabrialDestruir> Un gzip it :p
[11:59] <SStrife> but then it's too big
[11:59] <SStrife> you're supposed to rawrite/dd the .gz file directly to the floppy
[12:00] <mjr> gzip isn't really a suitable compression for random-access disk images...
[12:00] <SStrife> it just reads it into a ramdisk
[12:00] <piless> raynerd: any micro usb phone charger will do, just make sure the output is > 700mA
[12:00] <SStrife> presumably the kernel unzips it on the fly
[12:01] <raynerd> piless - yea, I got warned on here a few months back to be carful with cheapo phone chargers and apparently some are rubbish even if "official" makes... ?? I don`t really understand that, but that is the advice I got!

[12:02] <raynerd> piless - I`m in UK and ideally wanted to get something from "in store" then I could try my pi out tonight.
[12:02] <mjr> SStrife, ah, so the concern is not really that the image is gzipped but that the image has gzipped content ;]
[12:03] <RaYmAn> the power supply RS sells is 1.2A, and the docs claim rpi uses between 700mA and 1.2A

[12:03] <mjr> raynerd, oh yeah, and 1A is preferrable so you can power low-power usb devices through the pi (but low-power only)
[12:03] <gordonDrogon> raynerd, just make sure whatever you get is at least 1A capacity.

[12:05] <Gadgetoid_Air> ( note; you should get an annoying pop-up telling you nothing about cookies )
[12:06] <piless> it's so stupid
[12:06] <RaYmAn> Surely it must be obvious when there's a picture of cookies! ;)
[12:07] <gordonDrogon> mjr, SStrife I keep gzipped SD card images on my AAO as it's only got an 8GB SSD itself and short of space..
[12:07] <gordonDrogon> but what I do when creating it, is dd if=/dev/zero of=space on the Pi, then rm space. that makes sure all unused sectors on the SD are zero which compress really well...
[12:08] <SStrife> thats an interesting idea
[12:08] <gordonDrogon> put the sd in the laptop and gzip -9 -c < /dev/mm... > sd.gz
[12:08] <SStrife> i got it to work
[12:08] <SStrife> i just had to pad the gz file with 0's
[12:08] <gordonDrogon> and to write a new SD, zcat sd.gz > /dev/mm...
[12:08] <SStrife> to 1,474,560 bytes
[12:08] <SStrife> so virtualbox would believe that it's indeed a raw floppy image
[12:08] <gordonDrogon> SStrife, but that's still a gzippped image.
[12:09] <SStrife> i know
[12:09] <SStrife> "Detected compressed image at block 0..."
[12:10] <gordonDrogon> I've never used virtualbox though. I got the qemu things going OK.

[12:10] <SStrife> yea, i think virtualbox was just doing a sanity check

[12:18] <gordonDrogon> one of my clients has about 500 or so customers - they're a web design co... So I wonder if they're now updating all their sites for this new law... Might ask them next week..
[12:19] <nid0> Meatballs: cookies that're fundamentally required for a site to work dont need consent, so login cookies are excluded. The UK has washed the regulations down so much that its barely relevant anyway, you can get away with "implied consent" if you reasonably feel your users will/should know that their actions will involve cookies being set

[13:29] <plugwash> bootc, i'm not sure on the exact fraction but it's quite a substatial ammount
[13:29] <bootc> well upgrade/dist-upgrade have been renamed safe-upgrade and full-upgrade
[13:29] <plugwash> bootc, only in aptitude
[13:29] <bootc> basically, safe-upgrade/upgrade won't install new packages, so if an updated packages has new dependencies it won't upgrade the package
[13:29] <shirro> but I don't really know what it does - never really bothered to look. Just done it that way for a decade. Should just use aptitide I guess
[13:30] <bootc> dist-upgrade/full-upgrade will do that
[13:30] <plugwash> gordonDrogon, it's no different from any other debian system, upgrade is the conservative option, dist-upgrade is the agressive option
[13:30] <bootc> plugwash: nice
[13:30] <gordonDrogon> plugwash, ok - I've never used an "unstable/testing" before ..
[13:30] <plugwash> sometimes you need the agressive option but you should ALWAYS check what it plans to do before you say yes
[13:30] <bootc> I personally always use full-upgrade, but then I also run wheezy and you can't really use that without doing full-upgrade
[13:31] <gordonDrogon> I have dist-upgraded systems in the past - e.g. from woody onwards IIRC.
[13:31] <gordonDrogon> this is specifically for Raspbian.

[13:32] <gordonDrogon> Pi2 is being powered by my workstation PC's USB port....
[13:33] <gordonDrogon> Seems to have booted up OK.
[13:33] <bootc> I always boot my Pi off my desktop, gives plenty of juice - tho I do have a BlackBerry charger for when I want to run standalone
[13:33] <gordonDrogon> so that probably means my PC will give >100mA to any device without any negotiation...
[13:33] <bootc> most do...

[13:34] <mjr> giving out enough for the Pi (700mA tops) is probably less common, but not very rare either especially on desktops

[13:36] <SStrife> my desktop PC's ports weren't up to it

[13:36] <gordonDrogon> I see armv6l
[13:37] <mjr> And of course nowadays computers are getting USB3, and most are probably prepared to supply the specced 900 mA through it (again, probably without needing to negotiate, even though the device is technically required to do it)
[13:37] <gordonDrogon> yea, I think this has usb3 ports round the back...

[14:07] <simonlc> I like python, but it manages to use up a lot of space on the image
[14:07] <gordonDrogon> (sorry, just thinking of the Pi's aim to release Python to the world ;-)
[14:08] <gordonDrogon> Personally I have no use for it, however...
[14:08] <simonlc> I installed debian on a 2gb card and had no room for quake 3!

[14:14] <paddysteed> do you need to start the window manager to play doom or run omxplayer?
[14:14] <Hexxeh> anyone know the hdmi_mode code for 720p off hand?
[14:14] <gordonDrogon> prboom uses SDL - and that (for now) works better under X.

[14:15] <gordonDrogon> although... hang on .. I'll check as I have my old compost monitor hooked up to Pi2

[14:15] <gordonDrogon> then again, Pi2 is still being thrashed with an apt-get update from the standard debian ...
[14:16] <simonlc> what if you type /opt/vc/bin/tvservice ???m DMT ?
[14:16] <gordonDrogon> preempt isn't the standard kernel option? surprises me for what's supposed to be a desktop box...
[14:17] <Hexxeh> simonlc: mode 4: 640x480 @ 60Hz, progressive
[14:17] <shirro> not the only surprise in the config
[14:17] <simonlc> what if you type /opt/vc/bin/tvservice ???m CEA ?
[14:17] <Hexxeh> simonlc: which is the only mode I can get out of the Pi so far
[14:17] <simonlc> note the CEA
[14:17] <gordonDrogon> might make the effort to compile a kernel for it this weekend.
[14:17] <Hexxeh> (native) mode 4: 1280x720 @ 60Hz, progressive
[14:17] <Hexxeh> mode 1, 2 and 3 too
[14:17] <chris_99> did you have sound in doom gordonDrogon?
[14:17] <Hexxeh> 640x480, and two at 720x480
[14:18] <gordonDrogon> chris_99, no - I've not had it hooked up to speakers yet.
[14:18] <chris_99> ah
[14:19] <simonlc> if I put no mode it in just uses my monitor's native, 1920x1200
[14:19] <gordonDrogon> dizzy. playing my didge when recovering from a cold is probably not a good idea.
[14:20] <Hexxeh> simonlc: i've not tried not setting a mode for a few FW versions now, but it used to result in a blank screen
[14:20] <Hexxeh> simonlc: just tried it now, and it attempts to use state 0x120016, 1920x1200 @ 60Hz, progressive
[14:22] <simonlc> that's what mine goes to aswell, but that just happens to be my monitor's resolution

[14:28] <simonlc> oh
[14:28] <mjr> 150 euros seems rather expensive for a converter...
[14:28] <simonlc> yeah, idk I'd try brute forcing it, increment the mode until one works
[14:29] <gordonDrogon> shirro, I use voluntary +1000Hz on my x86 desktops - seems reasonable. Not using the auto proc. schedul though - doesn't that require hints from the window manager?
[14:29] <Hexxeh> mjr: yeah, it was, but at the time i bought it i didn't have space for a TV in my room
[14:30] <simonlc> unless you can actually define hex numbers in the config

[14:58] <chris_99> ah okey doke
[14:58] <gordonDrogon> that's the first time I've heard sound from a Pi :)
[14:58] <SStrife> Um, kay.
[14:58] <chris_99> i want to play doom now :)
[14:58] <simonlc> ah the sound of demons dying in the morning
[14:59] <gordonDrogon> I do have a legit copy of Doom II too...
[14:59] <gordonDrogon> ..somewhere...
[14:59] <SStrife> 386SX is quite a bit slower than a "233MHz arm9 target" :)
[14:59] <SStrife> as low as 16MHz
[14:59] <SStrife> it shouldn't be surprising that Doom will run on a 600MHz-anything
[15:00] <ccssnet> doom on a 66mhz pentium was so much smoother then a 386

[15:02] <raynerd> Hello, just installed the basic Debian Squeeze from the recommended list on the wiki and have booted up got to the login page, pi and password raspberry, then I get a prompt pi:raspberrypi:~$ however, I thought this version of squeeze had a GUI on it??

[15:02] <simonlc> he means, type startx

[15:03] <raynerd> Ahhh !! thasnkyou
[15:04] <raynerd> please can you tell me, what does that do, why did I need to do that?
[15:04] <simonlc> there's probably a way to auto start 'x', google will help you with that
[15:04] <chris_99> it just launches the X server for you
[15:04] <gordonDrogon> FrozenCow, that on composite output?
[15:04] <FrozenCow> yup
[15:04] <gordonDrogon> FrozenCow, yea, I've had "fun" fiddling with the sizes.
[15:04] <FrozenCow> haha
[15:04] <gordonDrogon> IF you want 640x480, then try this:
[15:05] <FrozenCow> the overscan options you mean?
[15:05] <gordonDrogon> #framebuffer_width=784
[15:05] <gordonDrogon> #framebuffer_height=638
[15:05] <gordonDrogon> leave overscan on for a CRT/TV and use those (without the #'s)
[15:05] <gordonDrogon> assuming Debian.
[15:05] <FrozenCow> hmm alright
[15:05] <raynerd> so the xserver is the user interface right?
[15:05] <FrozenCow> i'm running arch, but i guess that'll be the same
[15:06] <simonlc> no xserver is the base for the user interface
[15:06] <simonlc> the default user interface on that debian image is called xfce
[15:06] <gordonDrogon> FrozenCow, Hm. not sure. I was told that Debian adds on 32 to each side, top & bottom, but I'm not sure if that's debian (unlikely) or the kernel they produced for Debian (more likely)
[15:06] <simonlc> we call it a 'desktop environment'

[15:06] <gordonDrogon> simonlc, it's lxde on the default debian ...
[15:07] <simonlc> right, damn four letter names
[15:07] <FrozenCow> well, i copied some overscan values from a forum into my config.txt and set the sdtv_mode to 2 (PAL) after rebooting it looked alright to me
[15:07] <simonlc> they aren't even a word
[15:08] <raynerd> I`m not being a hater - I`ve been excited about getting this since ordering it in March but I`m finding it a little slower than I expected :-(
[15:08] <Pi_iglet> @FrozenCow: config.txt in /boot? It's not there until you create it?
[15:09] <Pi_iglet> Ha! I wasn't expecting much speed - so surprised at how fast it is!
[15:09] <simonlc> I tried lxde on the pi, it was pretty slow yea
[15:09] <FrozenCow> hm, it was there in the archlinux .img
[15:09] <raynerd> lol, I obviously had the bar too high!!
[15:09] <Pi_iglet> hmmm - not on deb squeeze.
[15:09] <FrozenCow> the sdcard is just slow, the rest is quite alright to me
[15:09] <simonlc> right now I'm just using the console
[15:09] <raynerd> Pi_iglet - what are you running then?
[15:09] <Pi_iglet> Expect little and be happily surprised is my motto
[15:09] <simonlc> it's not that bad raynerd if you tweak it
[15:09] <ReggieUK> raynerd, you and about 100k people have their bar to high for pi
[15:10] <raynerd> ReggieUK - sorry !!
[15:10] <ReggieUK> but it will most certainly be usable
[15:10] <FrozenCow> lol
[15:10] <ReggieUK> hey, don't apoligise :)
[15:10] <Pi_iglet> deb squeeze - I spend all day working getting data out of a sloaris box - but know diddly-squat about the setup on linux
[15:10] <SStrife> the X server is still unaccelerated
[15:10] <simonlc> you should try raspbian instead raynerd, but you'll need to do some configuring to get it all up and running
[15:10] <SStrife> it will get smoother as time goes by
[15:10] <haltdef> an X driver for the gpu should improve that massively
[15:10] <FrozenCow> what I still need to know is how to play videos efficiently... I've seen omxplayer, but couldn't get it to run
[15:10] <Pi_iglet> is there any news on gup x-driver progress?
[15:10] * Holden (~holden@unaffiliated/holdenc) Quit (Quit: Ex-Chat)
[15:11] <SStrife> it won't be useful for web-browsing and stuff though, because RAM is at a premium
[15:11] <Pi_iglet> gpu*
[15:11] <raynerd> simonlc - I`ll google it now.
[15:11] <SStrife> 256MB minus whatever the GPU is taking.
[15:11] <plugwash> mmm, modern web browsers are ram hogs :(
[15:11] <haltdef> I'm not even trying to use mine with a gui, console only
[15:11] <FrozenCow> try luakit or something
[15:11] <haltdef> can starve the gpu of ram too, sod it
[15:11] <simonlc> midori was actually faster than I expected
[15:12] <Pi_iglet> Chromium grinds to a halt on modern styled we pages - but Midori just crashed all the time
[15:12] <SStrife> i can't believe how bloaty FIrefox has gotten.
[15:12] <SStrife> Firefox 1.5 will run on an NT4 box woth 64MB of RAM
[15:12] <raynerd> Maybe just my patience threshold needs to improve, but even something like booting midori, I`m getting about a 5-10 second pause.
[15:12] <gordonDrogon> can't belive that google had the cheek to tell me to get a modern browser when I viewed Moogs doodle the other day in FF12 ...
[15:12] <FrozenCow> i'm guessing that's the sdcard
[15:12] <raynerd> Ah OK
[15:13] <FrozenCow> not sure how to improve that speed though :'(
[15:13] <ReggieUK> gordonDrogon, i saw that too
[15:13] <Pi_iglet> I remember when they stripped Netscape down to start Firefox. It was lean and mean and pretty darn good. Now...it's bloated more than a M$ product
[15:13] <ReggieUK> the cheek of it
[15:13] <ReggieUK> how about google make their stuff work on anything?
[15:13] <SStrife> FrozenCow: You put rootfs on a USB HDD
[15:13] <SStrife> or NFS
[15:13] <haltdef> SDs were never intended for what the pi is using it for
[15:13] <SStrife> both of those methods are hugely faster than pure SD
[15:13] <simonlc> gordonDrogon: firefox still has some features that only webkit has thus far implemented
[15:13] <FrozenCow> how fast is a usb hdd, will that be faster than ethernet?
[15:14] <Pi_iglet> All through same chip - can't be ferster can it!?
[15:14] <FrozenCow> (I have no clue how fast usb can be)
[15:14] <ReggieUK> replace the sd card with an eMMC controller and some nand flash
[15:14] <FrozenCow> aaah ok
[15:14] <simonlc> I didn't have a chance to try the moog doodle though so idk what it was
[15:14] <SStrife> USB2 can be up to 480Mbps
[15:14] <raynerd> anyone else running Raspbian?
[15:14] <gordonDrogon> Hm. NFS the Pi.
[15:14] <simonlc> I am
[15:14] <haltdef> sequential speeds don't matter hugely, it's random that OSes like
[15:14] <FrozenCow> oh that's still pretty good, I'll try that later
[15:14] <gordonDrogon> I'm running Raspbian.
[15:14] <shirro> usb driver still has some issues but in long run usb will be much faster alternative. will just use sd to boot
[15:14] <haltdef> just bootstrapping it now
[15:15] <ReggieUK> simonlc, it was an old analog moog synth basically
[15:15] <FrozenCow> haltdef, playing videos is sequential ;)
[15:15] <SStrife> gordonDrogon, my friend at work is running his Pi over NFS
[15:15] <SStrife> just using a small 256MB SD card to boot from
[15:15] <simonlc> yeah I saw some video's of poeple playing music on it
[15:15] <ReggieUK> push some keys and play with the vco/vcf/lfo knobs
[15:15] <haltdef> even the slowest SD will so 2MB/s read
[15:15] <gordonDrogon> SStrife, I think bootc here was doing it too...
[15:15] <gordonDrogon> how hard can it be...
[15:15] <haltdef> only an issue if you're storing a whole blu-ray on an SD card
[15:15] <SStrife> simonlc is too
[15:15] <ReggieUK> if they'd coded midi-input into it then I'd have been impressed
[15:15] <SStrife> i think all you need to do it change cmdline.txt
[15:16] <SStrife> root=/dev/nfs
[15:16] <FrozenCow> oh cool
[15:16] <SStrife> and nfsroot=
[15:16] <Pi_iglet> theoretical bandwidth of 480 mbit on both usb + ethernet together. In practice it's got to be a lot lower once you take into account overheads
[15:16] <SStrife> I think
[15:16] <FrozenCow> didn't know it would be that easy
[15:16] <FrozenCow> (for nfs)
[15:16] <raynerd> I might give this raspbian a go then... although I`m a bit of a noob so will probably get stuck somewhere!

[15:16] <ReggieUK> it's the only way to be less of a noob :)
[15:17] <raynerd> I presume this Hexxeh, is the only realease?
[15:17] <simonlc> it's based on debian, which has a ton of guides and info for newbs
[15:17] <simonlc> you should be alright
[15:18] <plugwash> yeah, I think hexxeh is the only guy building and releasing raspbian images at the moment
[15:18] <Hexxeh> afaik yeah
[15:18] <plugwash> eventually we will have official images but not yet
[15:18] <simonlc> don't bloat it plz
[15:19] <Hexxeh> you or mpthompson planning on doing those?
[15:19] <Hexxeh> i think a few variants would be appropriate
[15:19] <Hexxeh> minimal, lxde, server etc
[15:19] <FrozenCow> Hexxeh are you basing it off the /boot files in the .img supplied by the raspberry folks or are you building those files by yourself too?
[15:20] <raynerd> oh.. Hexxeh is here! :-D what is the difference between these images and an "official" image?
[15:20] <Pi_iglet> Ha ! That's what I was typing!
[15:20] <FrozenCow> haha, Hexxeh = celebrity, awesome :D
[15:21] <plugwash> mmm, I'm guessing three would do, a minimal image, a minimal image with ssh (for those who want to set up a server and don't have a keyboard monitor and mouse handy) and an image comparable to the foundation's debian image
[15:21] <Pi_iglet> All bow down
[15:21] <FrozenCow> *bows
[15:21] <simonlc> raynerd: there is no official ones yet, so he is just providing an easy way for you to install it
[15:21] <Pi_iglet> Good thing I bowed down. Found my other missing SD card on the floor
[15:21] <Pi_iglet> Thanks!
[15:21] <simonlc> rofl
[15:21] <plugwash> I don't think having seperate images for every type of server is nessacery, people who want to set up servers probablly know exactly what they want and can install it themselves
[15:21] <FrozenCow> haha
[15:21] * BCMM (~ben@unaffiliated/bcmm) has joined #raspberrypi
[15:21] <SStrife> the proper way to do it, is to have an installer
[15:22] <SStrife> like Linux on any other platform
[15:22] <raynerd> No, still don`t understand. So how is hexxeh image going to be different fron an "offical" one?
[15:22] <raynerd> Ah
[15:22] <Pi_iglet> have a read: http://www.raspbian.org/HexxehImages
[15:22] <SStrife> we're using flat images now, because it's convenient, and a rapid way to get them out there
[15:22] <FrozenCow> SStrife: yes, I want a build-script that generates the .img files :P
[15:22] <FrozenCow> that's true
[15:22] <Hexxeh> FrozenCow: files from the official firmware repo
[15:23] <haltdef> why so much fuss over bloaty images
[15:23] <FrozenCow> but a repo with the scripts to build it would be cool
[15:23] <haltdef> just bootstrap your own sd from scratch
[15:23] <plugwash> SStrife, while it's possible to run the debian installer on arm hardware i've always considered it a bit of an excercise in masochism
[15:23] <FrozenCow> Hexxeh: ah alright, I guess i'll have to search elsewhere how to build them
[15:23] <raynerd> bootstrap?
[15:24] <ReggieUK> haltdef, not everyone has got the patience to sit there and watch a complete distro compile itself from scratch :D
[15:24] <haltdef> using a running x86 debian system you can download all of the required packages to build an ARM system
[15:24] <Hexxeh> FrozenCow: you can't build the elf files or bin files since source isn't available
[15:24] <haltdef> it's all binary from raspian's repos, hard work done for you
[15:24] <FrozenCow> i've created a 'new' .img, since my sdcard was just not big enough for the archlinux img... but I just copied files from the original .img, not 'building' it myself
[15:24] <raynerd> Not everyone has got the knowledge to sit there and watch a complete distro compile itself from scratch
[15:24] <FrozenCow> Hexxeh: ah I was afraid of that
[15:25] <ReggieUK> you rebuilt your own image FrozenCow

[15:25] <ReggieUK> my bad!
[15:25] <haltdef> I seem to have found the slowest SD in the universe
[15:25] <FrozenCow> ReggieUK: not exactly rebuilding, just making a partition table and copying files
[15:25] <haltdef> 25KB/s random writes, my 2GB microsd that came with the zte blade does 200
[15:26] <FrozenCow> not installing files on an empty boot and root directory from or something like that
[15:26] <raynerd> So as a total noob, little linux experience, just enough to get by with few commands, I`ve never really understand the linux structure and the idea of distros. What will be different from the squeeze I downloaded, to the Raspbian I`m about to use?
[15:26] <haltdef> it'll "feel" the same
[15:26] <ReggieUK> FrozenCow, it's not a complete rebuild but it's enough of a start to call it that
[15:26] <haltdef> the binaries you're running behind the scenes are making far better use of the available hardware
[15:27] <ReggieUK> you built the image from binaries
[15:27] <raynerd> and binaries are?
[15:27] <FrozenCow> it'll be mostly the same, but it has packages preinstalled or some configuration
[15:27] <haltdef> debian armel (which the official squeeze image is) is compiled for very old ARM chips
[15:27] <FrozenCow> ReggieUK: alright, yes it's a start
[15:27] <haltdef> think .exe
[15:27] <ReggieUK> binaries = linux equivalent of an exe file
[15:27] <plugwash> anything that uses floating point will be much faster, packages will be newer since it's based on wheezy rather than squeeze and a lot less is installed by default
[15:27] <ReggieUK> although....

[15:37] <Hexxeh> you need 128/128 iirc for video?
[15:38] <FrozenCow> what is 128/128?
[15:38] <shirro> not sure. might be able to do 192. I only tried with 128
[15:38] <Hexxeh> FrozenCow: you're probably best using rpi-update
[15:38] <Hexxeh> FrozenCow: follow these instructions
[15:38] <Hexxeh> and run "rpi-update 128"

[15:43] <shirro> if you play a video on hdmi and no sound comes out your tv use -o hdmi
[15:43] <shirro> simonlc: archlinux?
[15:43] <simonlc> yes
[15:44] <shirro> framebuffer - fbdev
[15:44] <gordonDrogon> Pi_iglet, it should just work - that's what I'm using.
[15:44] <shirro> all the arch people ask
[15:44] <Pi_iglet> Blast!
[15:44] <FrozenCow> no sounds works fine here, I'm running it on svideo (or however the old technology is called)
[15:44] <Pi_iglet> Thanks. *Ponders*
[15:44] <gordonDrogon> FrozenCow, compost.
[15:44] <FrozenCow> haha
[15:44] <shirro> yes, I think headphone is default. not really good quality
[15:44] <FrozenCow> oh right
[15:44] * Pi_iglet slaps the monitor with a trout
[15:45] <gordonDrogon> Doom quality :)
[15:45] <FrozenCow> i don't have anything hdmi around here, so it's my only option atm :P
[15:45] <shirro> FrozenCow: play full hd on a big hdmi screen and you realise how cool this little thing really is

[15:46] <FrozenCow> indeed, that day will come eventually for me too ;)
[15:46] <simonlc> ah, thanks shirro, that should be somewhere for people to find
[15:46] <mjr> I'm not sure if linux supports nfs over ipv6 yet... last I checked didn't seem to
[15:46] <piless> shirro: and start browsing and realise how terrible this little thing really is
[15:46] <simonlc> I skimped over it because of the 86 in the name :I
[15:47] <gordonDrogon> no ipv6 in the kernel.
[15:47] <simonlc> has anyone tried old browsers yet? or is everyone trying to run chrome and midori?
[15:47] <shirro> piless: true. depends on what you want.
[15:47] <piless> simonlc: like lynx?
[15:48] <simonlc> yeah
[15:48] <piless> that would be silly
[15:48] <shirro> i have tried links/w3m style text things. midori, chromium, iceweasel, netsurf
[15:49] <Hexxeh> updated rpi-update
[15:49] <gordonDrogon> Hm. was iceweasel usable?
[15:49] <Hexxeh> it now detects what split you're using rather than defaulting to 224MB
[15:49] <Hexxeh> also has offline update options now

[15:51] <simonlc> http://uzbl.org/
[15:51] <simonlc> that browser looks pretty interesting
[15:51] <shirro> I was playing eben's youtube on raspberry pi page while running htop and wigling windows about and scrolling the window etc. framerate was a joke ofcourse. was a bit of a pause while it swapped some things out at one stage. it doesn't have the cpu for decoding html video acceptably ofcourse. but responsiveness was ok. think tweaking kernel helped.
[15:52] <ReggieUK> might be worth looking for browsers that run nicely on other embedded platforms
[15:52] <shirro> i need to move onto a usb drive though
[15:52] <piless_> there's chrome for android
[15:52] <shirro> chromium should be fine if someone can get it running optimally
[15:52] <ReggieUK> either that or get some kind of pi-compatibility list up for websites and end up with our own 'channels' rather than a real browsing experience
[15:53] <piless_> ReggieUK: Give them stickers
[15:53] <ReggieUK> it seems that pi needs attacking from both ends of the spectrum really
[15:53] * piless (piless@ Quit (Ping timeout: 252 seconds)
[15:53] <ReggieUK> stuff that works on normal desktops (for those that like the pain and experience) and stuff that works nice and lean on embedded systems
[15:54] <FrozenCow> so, for anyone who gets "failed to open vchiq instance", type this and reboot: echo 'SUBSYSTEM=="vchiq",GROUP="video",MODE="0660"' > /etc/udev/rules.d/10-vchiq-permissions.rules
[15:54] <FrozenCow> where do I put such a thing so it will be default in the next .img?
[15:55] <piless_> push it to the git
[15:55] <ReggieUK> piless_, are you being sensible or trolling?
[15:55] <piless_> no, you can give them stickers to put on their site
[15:56] <shirro> generally you should update your image not replace it. but it is worth documenting all these things or putting them in a repo
[15:56] <ReggieUK> at the very least you could put that code into the troubleshooting section on the wiki!
[15:56] <lennard> woot, reporting in via the pi now !
[15:57] <shirro> ReggieUK: it should be in the distros
[15:57] <ReggieUK> but that kind of thing would go somewhere near the end of the build phase of the script before it starts to construct the image
[15:57] <ReggieUK> shirro, indeed it should :)
[15:57] <FrozenCow> can't find anything relating to omxplayer on the wiki yet
[15:57] <ReggieUK> I have no idea how the distro maintainers are working though
[15:58] <ReggieUK> create a section for omxplayer then :)
[15:58] <shirro> it is user generated content. just do it
[15:58] <FrozenCow> alright
[15:58] <ReggieUK> FrozenCow, the wiki by nature is pretty open, so if you have valid and useful information, then that's the place to share it where everyone else can find it
[15:59] <FrozenCow> I can also do a pull request at https://github.com/raspberrypi/firmware , but there isn't any info on the 'extra' files or something like that
[15:59] <shirro> i put an entry in udev for vcmem as well but I don't think anything uses it. don't know whether to suggest adding it as well or not
[15:59] <ReggieUK> FrozenCow, which extra files?
[15:59] <ReggieUK> I'm really not familiar with the distro at all
[15:59] <FrozenCow> well, udev rules are like 'extra' files, not really firmware files
[16:00] <FrozenCow> it depends on the distro where to put them too I guess
[16:00] <Hexxeh> FrozenCow: talk to pepedog, guy who did the arch image
[16:00] <shirro> if we get additional codecs the gpu is supposed to be able to talk to a daemon to check for codec files or something which distros probably should also set up except nothing uses it
[16:01] <FrozenCow> Hexxeh: thx
[16:01] <Hexxeh> could those codec files be pinched from a roku?
[16:01] <shirro> naughty. very naughty (do you have one?)
[16:02] <ReggieUK> Hexxeh, I've been thinking that very same thing
[16:02] <ReggieUK> but
[16:02] <ReggieUK> I Reckon there will be some identifying feature that stops us
[16:02] <ReggieUK> like the gpio that are connected to the i2s pins
[16:02] <gordonDrogon> Is roku based on the same SoChimp?
[16:03] <ReggieUK> those are there for hardware ID that is unused in the pi
[16:03] <ReggieUK> I bet they're used for the roku
[16:03] <shirro> roku2 is
[16:03] <ReggieUK> gordonDrogon, yup, they've got the same monkeys insude
[16:03] <ReggieUK> inside
[16:03] * [SLB] (~slabua@unaffiliated/slabua) has joined #raspberrypi
[16:03] <gordonDrogon> neat. ook.
[16:03] <shirro> i am sure they fuse some sort of id into them
[16:03] <ReggieUK> probably but I'd like to hold out that small light of hope that they don't
[16:04] <ReggieUK> and it really does rely on the configuration of some gpio at boot time
[16:04] <raynerd> hexxeh - what are ca certificates - just tried to run rpi-update and it failed
[16:04] <ReggieUK> that's how leapfrog did it
[16:04] <gordonDrogon> I'd never heard of a Roku until now - 50 quid for the box...
[16:04] <gordonDrogon> with built-in wifi.
[16:04] <Hexxeh> raynerd: they're certificates that help your browser decide whether or not to trust a sites ssl cert
[16:04] <ReggieUK> gordonDrogon, it's the roku2 I believe you should be looking at
[16:04] <Hexxeh> raynerd: you running debian?
[16:05] <shirro> gordonDrogon: yeah that is why all the media box people are so annoying.
[16:05] <raynerd> I`m running your raspbian
[16:05] <Hexxeh> raynerd: so apt-get install ca-certificates
[16:05] <gordonDrogon> Ah, ?100 ...
[16:05] <ReggieUK> yeah, that's what codecs cost
[16:05] <ReggieUK> ??70 :(
[16:05] <gordonDrogon> and a nice box and prettys, etc.
[16:05] <raynerd> Hehheh - cheers!
[16:05] <raynerd> hexxeh - cheers!
[16:06] <raynerd> still fails, so guess time must be set incorrectly
[16:06] <gordonDrogon> intersting. wonder what it runs under the lid ...
[16:06] <ReggieUK> shirro, leapfrog used gpio to configure board IDs on their last 3 kids consoles
[16:07] <ReggieUK> I'm not giving away any naughty secrets
[16:07] <ReggieUK> they're kernel source code is gpl :)
[16:07] <ReggieUK> their*
[16:07] <Hexxeh> raynerd: install ntpdate and use ntpdate uk.pool.ntp.org
[16:07] <ReggieUK> so you can make each of their consoles think that they're one of the other consoles
[16:08] <ReggieUK> I'm hoping that broadcom have been that lax :D

[16:09] <SpeedEvil> My laptop won't read the new microSD I've just bought.

[16:09] <ReggieUK> tried a different reader?
[16:09] <SpeedEvil> So after I've completed running badblocks - which has done 3/4 passes on the SD already - I guess I'm unbzipping on the phone.
[16:10] <SpeedEvil> Also - I need to get these stamps sold on ebay.
[16:10] <ReggieUK> the readers in laptops are usually much better than the random readers people get

[16:20] <gordonDrogon> so hole-in-bucket time now. To make raspbian put root on nfs, it needs to have initialised it's ethernet interface, but to initialise that, it needs userland mounted to do the initialisation, so ...
[16:20] <gordonDrogon> so I need a new kernel with ethernet initialisation hardwared into it, or is this initrd time?

[16:26] <ReggieUK> if it works for you then it's great :)
[16:27] <ReggieUK> I just had experience with the drivers a number of years back and it sucked
[16:27] <piless_> is zd1211rw the chipset?
[16:27] <ReggieUK> yes
[16:27] <nanomad> yes
[16:27] <nanomad> pretty common el-cheapo chipset back in the days
[16:27] <nanomad> from what i can see
[16:27] <nanomad> 54g only
[16:27] <piless_> Is there support for RTL8187?
[16:27] <ReggieUK> it would cop out of trying to connect because someone had set a low retry count in the driver, hardcoded it
[16:28] <ReggieUK> I'm sure the zd1211rw did a/b/g
[16:28] <nanomad> yes it should
[16:28] <nanomad> (to ReggieUK )

[16:38] <Hexxeh> also arch has the same thing by default
[16:38] <nanomad> ok, installing less to see what dmesg says
[16:40] <Pi_iglet> Ok hexxeh, thanks. Just frurating not to be able to have this pi on a DVi-D monitor.
[16:40] <nanomad> nothing there
[16:40] <Hexxeh> Pi_iglet: played with hdmi_group and hdmi_mode?
[16:40] <Hexxeh> force_hdmi_hotplug is handy too if you never need composite
[16:41] <nanomad> Hexxeh: the strange thing is it worked fine on archlinuxarm
[16:41] <Hexxeh> there was a change related to hdmi_group
[16:41] <Hexxeh> raspbian uses newer firmware
[16:41] <Hexxeh> arch is too old to be affected

[17:07] <raynerd> ahh, I see. Is there any way to find the ip?
[17:07] <chaoshax> Do you have to include every parameter if you are going to use config.txt?
[17:07] <nanomad> as it happened to me too, and we are the first two to report this
[17:07] <chaoshax> Even if I am not changing them?
[17:07] <gordonDrogon> chaoshax, no - just the ones you want to change.
[17:07] <raynerd> ewww!
[17:07] <raynerd> my mouse it working again!
[17:07] <nanomad> see? lol
[17:07] <Hexxeh> nanomad: you're running rpi-update under X?
[17:07] <nanomad> yes I was
[17:07] <Hexxeh> ah, probably not a good idea
[17:07] <nanomad> why?
[17:08] <gordonDrogon> raynerd, ah.... you need the smsc95xx.turbo_mode=N fix ...
[17:08] <raynerd> but the window is still frozen?? Setting up firmware (this will take a few minutes)
[17:08] <nanomad> give it a bit of time
[17:08] <nanomad> it's just busy
[17:08] <Hexxeh> it takes a long time
[17:08] <Hexxeh> especially if you're under X
[17:08] <raynerd> ok
[17:08] <gordonDrogon> without that my Pi would appear to die when doing lots of network traffic, but it would come back - most of the time - eventually.
[17:08] <chris_99> what do you mean turbo mode fix gordonDrogon
[17:08] <chaoshax> What's the advantage of updating firmware?
[17:08] <chris_99> that didn't fix it for me gordonDrogon
[17:08] <gordonDrogon> prepend smsc95xx.turbo_mode=N to the line in /boot/cmdline.txt
[17:08] <nanomad> chaoshax: bug fixes?
[17:08] <gordonDrogon> oh ...
[17:09] <chaoshax> nanomad, never noticed any bugs, what ones are there?
[17:09] <raynerd> +gordonDrogon - what does that fix mean? What do I need to do?
[17:09] <chris_99> i still get kernel panics with that 'fix'
[17:09] <gordonDrogon> edit /boot/cmdline.txt - prepend that to the single line it contains.
[17:09] <nanomad> chaoshax: dunno really, but if you check github you'll see what's getting fixed
[17:09] <gordonDrogon> chris_99, I've never seen a kernel panic though.
[17:10] <chaoshax> nanomad, what's the firmware repo?
[17:10] <chris_99> oh, i get kernel panics with BT
[17:10] <gordonDrogon> The other "fix" is putting this: vm.min_free_kbytes = 12288 into /etc/sysctl.conf
[17:10] <nanomad> chaoshax: https://github.com/raspberrypi/firmware
[17:10] <chris_99> i tried that too, gordonDrogon
[17:10] <chaoshax> Cheers
[17:10] <gordonDrogon> chris_99, )-:
[17:10] <raynerd> lol - I have no idea what any of that meant! sorry ... :-(
[17:10] <chaoshax> Yeah I don't want to brick it.
[17:10] <chris_99> i managed to log the kernel panic though, but it doesn't make any sense
[17:11] <gordonDrogon> I did see some weird panics when I had a wireless mouse and a URF USB modules plugged in - and from what I gether the USB driver is still somewhat a work in progress...
[17:11] <raynerd> what is a kernel panic?
[17:11] <chris_99> as i haven't been able to replicate from a debug kernel yet
[17:11] <nanomad> raynerd: I guess you don't have much linux experience :P
[17:11] <gordonDrogon> raynerd, sort of same as windows BSOD, but often the Linux kernel can keep going with some of them.

[17:11] <nanomad> sorry, damn google
[17:11] <nanomad> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kernel_panic
[17:12] <chris_99> this is the panic i get http://www.anfractuosity.com/?p=558
[17:12] <raynerd> you guessed right.... in 2005 I downloaded Ubuntu, hated it and then about 3 months ago downloaded Debian and got peed off trying to install .deb files
[17:12] <chris_99> it's easy, just 'dpkg -i blah.deb'
[17:13] <nanomad> unless you have deps to met
[17:13] <nanomad> that's why you don't usually install debs manually
[17:13] <chris_99> apt-get install -f
[17:13] <chris_99> normally helps
[17:13] <nanomad> yes it does
[17:13] <nanomad> chris_99: was that with a debug kernel?
[17:13] <chaoshax> Apt helps loads :)
[17:13] <chris_99> no, with the normal kernel nanomad

[17:14] <chris_99> hence the lack of debugging info
[17:14] <nanomad> I guess you didn't manage to reproduce the bug
[17:14] <chris_99> oh its reproducable
[17:14] <chaoshax> So I guess there are people cross compiling packages to arm?
[17:14] <raynerd> I`m still waiting for this :-S

[17:14] <nanomad> chris_99: run a debug kernel and get the "better" output
[17:14] <nanomad> should be easy
[17:15] <chris_99> that's what i'm trying atm
[17:15] <chris_99> but i haven't had it panic
[17:15] <chris_99> weirdly
[17:15] <raynerd> On a more positive note, might try and print a case for my pi tonight on my printer. :-D Gives me a new project
[17:15] <gordonDrogon> doesn't mean too much to me - I'm not a kernel dev, however, are you mounting ntfs stuff? if not, get rid of fuse - apt-get purge fuse
[17:15] <gordonDrogon> chris_99, nice AAO in white - I have one too :)
[17:15] <nacimep> dont think nfs uses fuse
[17:16] <gordonDrogon> nfs doesn't need fuse, but nTfs does...
[17:16] <nanomad> and it seems like fuse is built in
[17:16] <gordonDrogon> purge it :)
[17:16] <gordonDrogon> there's a lot of stuff "built in" with the Raspberry Pi Debian image.
[17:16] <chris_99> heh, they're pretty nice aren't they gordonDrogon, except my battery doesn't work
[17:16] <raynerd> other than physical damage, is there any way to kill a pi?
[17:16] <nacimep> oh i saw ntfs and it looked like nfs
[17:16] <Hexxeh> raynerd: overvolting
[17:16] <nanomad> seems to be related to the network stack btw
[17:17] <nacimep> i choose to not recognize winsuck crap
[17:17] <nanomad> Process ifplugd
[17:17] <gordonDrogon> chris_99, I get about an hour on mine if I'm lucky now ... You can still get new ones though.
[17:17] <chaoshax> Well isn't overvolting technically physical damage?
[17:17] <chris_99> yeah i ordered one from ebay that didn't last too long unfourtunately
[17:17] <nanomad> chaoshax: yes it is
[17:17] <raynerd> yea, I meant like killing it from the software side of it..
[17:17] <gordonDrogon> chris_99, Hm. probably wouldn't use ebay myself, however...
[17:17] <RaYmAn> chris_99: software controlled physical damage ;)
[17:17] <RaYmAn> err, chaoshax
[17:18] <RaYmAn> (damn nick-complete :P)
[17:18] <raynerd> lol,
[17:18] <chaoshax> Yes I think there's a risk of some kids overvolting them.

[17:19] <gordonDrogon> raynerd, probably...
[17:19] <nanomad> yes
[17:19] <RaYmAn> Hexxeh: tbh, there is a fairly good chance that you can't overvolt it sufficiently to actually break it - not that I fancy trying ;)
[17:19] <chris_99> gordonDrogon, cheers
[17:19] <nanomad> at worst you'll have to re-write the image to the sdcard raynerd
[17:19] <raynerd> sure, OK

[17:23] <Hexxeh> no turning it up to 11?
[17:23] <gordonDrogon> the default is 1.2v
[17:23] <Hexxeh> :(
[17:23] <nanomad> I'm going to try a bit of undervolting next :P
[17:23] <plugwash> that page seems to indicate a range of -16 to 8 but it doesn't make it clear whether that is just an advised range or an actual limit
[17:23] <gordonDrogon> the range appears to be -16 to 8!
[17:24] <plugwash> e.g. if someone where to specify a value of 16 would the pi run at 1.6v?
[17:24] <gordonDrogon> they are in 0.25v steps.
[17:24] <gordonDrogon> plugwash, good question, but I suspect the voltage generator has limits...

[17:25] <nanomad> raynerd: open the config.txt
[17:25] <nanomad> add what gordonDrogon said at the beginning
[17:25] <gordonDrogon> raynerd, it means to stick that text at the start of the line, then a space, then the rest of what's on that line.
[17:25] <gordonDrogon> so my /boot/cmdline.txt looks like:

[17:39] <plugwash> there is no such thing as a rpi emulator

[17:40] <plugwash> you CAN run raspbian in qemu but it requires a different kernel and a different qemu configuration from running the foundations images in qemu
[17:40] <PhonRaspPi> you could have an environment in it that built binary compatible executables

[17:41] <PhonRaspPi> these are for me to stick OSs on
[17:41] <chaoshax> Now you need to buy 4 pis
[17:42] <raynerd> OK, I`m confused! From inside the GUI I don`t seem to be able to open any installed programs but using terminal I can. For example, nano is apparently installed yet text files won`t open in the GUI!
[17:42] <chaoshax> I have a activation code, might stick it on ebay.
[17:42] <PhonRaspPi> raynerd, have you installed leafpad or similar?
[17:42] <plugwash> if you want to run raspbian in qemu http://archive.raspbian.org/qemu/
[17:42] <piless> I bought a sandisk 8gb for ??4.50 off amazon with free shipping
[17:42] <raynerd> not that I know of or not knowingly
[17:43] <PhonRaspPi> piless, what class?
[17:43] <PhonRaspPi> raynerd, then install leafpad
[17:43] <piless> PhonRaspPi: The boring blue ones, so 4
[17:43] <PhonRaspPi> these are class 6
[17:43] <raynerd> apt-get install leafpad ?
[17:43] <mjr> nano isn't a gui program so the gui probably doesn't think it worth it to open text files with it
[17:43] <PhonRaspPi> yup
[17:43] <PhonRaspPi> ^
[17:44] <PhonRaspPi> either that or its trying to open it and nano immediately closes because no console is attatched
[17:44] <raynerd> Also however, things like synaptic are showing in the GUI but won`t open by clicking on them, yet in terminal synaptic opens
[17:45] <PhonRaspPi> who runs raspbian?

[17:58] <nanomad> Simon-: from what I can see it's a DMA implementation for the rpi hardware
[17:59] <Simon-> yes but it's another one of these "hack something into the kernel using the wrong interface"
[17:59] <Simon-> I'll get around to writing a dma engine driver if bootc doesn't get there first
[17:59] <bootc> Simon-: I'll be busy with more SPI and I2C work for some time to come I think
[18:00] <Hexxeh> Simon-: i don't think most people will care as long as it works better than what we have now
[18:01] <shirro> it is a proof of concept though. not everyone has kernel hacking experience. the interface could be changed later by someone with that knowledge couldn't it
[18:01] <Simon-> not really, but it shouldn't be too difficult to write
[18:01] <Simon-> it's just that I'm currently working on usb instead
[18:02] <shirro> there are going to be a lot of people doing stuff on the pi outside their usual stuff. i am sure most of them know they aren't doing stuff perfectly but how do you learn except by trying and getting feedback
[18:02] <nanomad> indeed
[18:02] <friggle> Simon-: teh_orph is on the linux-rpi-kernel mailing list and very happy to take feedback I'm sure
[18:02] <nanomad> you should suggest him to go "the pr
[18:02] <nanomad> wtf
[18:02] <friggle> Simon-: his main focus at the moment is of course get it working :)
[18:02] <[SLB]> is the firmware update independent from the particular distro one is using or to have benefit of the improvements you guys are working on, one must use a particular distro?
[18:03] <shirro> yeah, whatever it takes to prove the concept I reckon. clean it up after
[18:03] <nanomad> anyawy, shirro point him to the correct driver interface. At least it will stay on the ML for reference
[18:03] <Simon-> [SLB]: firmware updates are independent
[18:03] <shirro> no not me. i wouldn't know. simon or bootc or someone
[18:03] <Simon-> [SLB]: the stuff I'm working on will go into the kernel for everyone's benefit

[19:02] <wizkid057> dallas?
[19:02] <gordonDrogon> yes.
[19:03] <wizkid057> ah yeah, probably need the interface to be at the kernel level for those timings
[19:03] <wizkid057> or, interface with an AVR via another method then do the 1-wire on the AVR
[19:04] <gordonDrogon> well, yes, I already interface to avrs.. however.
[19:04] <FrankBuss> gordonDrogon: there is already a driver for it in the kernel, you need just activate it: http://how-to.wikia.com/wiki/How_to_configure_the_Linux_kernel/drivers/w1
[19:04] <gordonDrogon> google suggests there there is a 1-wire interface in the kernel though.
[19:04] <wizkid057> && there you go
[19:04] <gordonDrogon> FrankBuss, yes - just looking now.

[19:05] * PiBot sets mode +v fabrice
[19:05] <wizkid057> i wonder if the 1-wire kernel module supports using a GPIO pin, though
[19:06] <gordonDrogon> ok, looks like the kernel driver won't do bit-banging over the GPIO - it's assuming some built-in 1w bus master chips...
[19:06] <FrankBuss> yes, it does, I have used this driver once for an AT91SAM9 system
[19:06] <PhonicUK> is there a bounty for an accelerated X11 module?
[19:07] <wizkid057> we dont have hardware acceleration?!
[19:07] <PhonicUK> yes we do?
[19:07] <PhonicUK> wait
[19:07] <PhonicUK> we don't for X11
[19:07] <wizkid057> it was a question and a surprise, hence the ?!
[19:07] <PhonicUK> we do for OpenGL:ES applications
[19:07] <gordonDrogon> FrankBuss, ok - I'm only looking at the x86 kernel build right now- I guess the ARM kernel might have more drivers in it - will get the Pi kernel sources soon.
[19:07] <wizkid057> no 2D accel though
[19:07] <PhonicUK> so quake 3 will run, but the desktop is slow because we're just drawing on the framebuffer
[19:08] <wizkid057> how do we play 1080p video then?
[19:08] <piless_> omx
[19:08] <PhonicUK> we have accelerated video decoding
[19:08] <wizkid057> decoding, but, writing ~400MB to the framebuffer per second generally doesnt make for smooth video

[19:10] <nid0> rather odd, running a mkfs for an iscsi partition on the pi is killing its wifi connection :\
[19:10] <FrankBuss> gordonDrogon: last time I used it for the Atmel chip, it was the same as with I2C: you need to add some resource in the architecture file in the kernel to tell the software emulation what GPIO pins to use, just recompiling doesn't work
[19:10] <PhonicUK> or it blits directly into video memory
[19:11] <gordonDrogon> FrankBuss, you mean ARM chip, I presume?
[19:11] <FrankBuss> yes, it was an ARM chip, AT91SAM9G20, without hardware support for 1-wire :-)
[19:11] <PhonicUK> hmm
[19:12] <gordonDrogon> FrankBuss, ok - now looking for kernel stuff :)
[19:12] <PhonicUK> someone remind me which configuration file contains the terminal setups

[19:19] <gordonDrogon> so as a github newbie - how do I actually get the kernel sources from https://github.com/bootc/linux.git ?
[19:20] <Hexxeh> git clone https://github.com/bootc/linux.git
[19:20] <nid0> git clone https://github.com/raspberrypi/linux.git --depth 1
[19:20] <bootc> yeah that
[19:20] <Hexxeh> or that
[19:20] <bootc> the second is for the official kernel
[19:20] <bootc> and --depth 1 means you don't grab the history, so it's faster
[19:21] <bootc> also note the default branch in my git has got nothing to do with rpi whatsoever :-)
[19:21] <gordonDrogon> so I should use the 2nd one?
[19:21] <bootc> so you probably actually want: git clone -b rpi-3.2.18 https://github.com/bootc/linux.git --depth 1
[19:21] <gordonDrogon> ok
[19:21] <bootc> my 3.2.18 branch should work just fine with minimum fuss
[19:22] <DaQatz> usb working on it?
[19:22] <bootc> yes on 3.2.18 everything works fine
[19:22] * gordonDrogon waits for ruralistan broadband to do its thing.
[19:22] <FrankBuss> gordonDrogon: found a DS1822Z+ in my parts bin, if you like I can try to enable 1-wire in the kernel and test it
[19:22] <bootc> it's a forward-port of the official one with a few fixes thrown in for good measure
[19:22] <bootc> FrankBuss: Gadget-Work has done just that IIRC
[19:23] <FrankBuss> oh, nice
[19:23] <bootc> using an I2C to 1-wire bridge chip, can't remember which exactly
[19:23] <bootc> I think he was using owfs though, not the in-kernel 1-wire stuff
[19:23] <gordonDrogon> FrankBuss, if you like, but I'll still do it for myself anyway. I have a bag of temp sensors to play with.
[19:24] <bootc> I use a TMP102 I2C sensor myself
[19:24] <gordonDrogon> so github compresses on the server before copying? That's a bit of a waste - why not compress as it's copies..
[19:24] <bootc> temp1: +25.6??C (high = +160.0??C, hyst = +150.0??C)
[19:24] <bootc> warm in North Devon today :-D

[20:04] <neofutur> friendica is what diaspora should have been
[20:05] <chaoshax> Interesting.
[20:05] <chaoshax> But it's too complicated for lay people.
[20:05] <chaoshax> I guess you host nodes between friends.
[20:06] <neofutur> each node can connect to other nodes, and even to your facebook, diaspora or twitter
[20:06] <chaoshax> My friends wouldn't see a reason to use it.
[20:06] <neofutur> if sonmeone want to try it you can use my node : http://f.gw.gd/

[20:11] <GabrialDestruir> Hashing doesn't really protect the account, youu could always export the passwords and run them through one of those hash websites, or failiing that you've just made a password file you could Brute force against.
[20:12] <PhonicUK> although salting + hashing is pretty hard to get around
[20:12] <gordonDrogon> salt then too...
[20:12] <dwatkins> rainbow table
[20:12] <gordonDrogon> then you need N sets of rainbow tables where N is the salt size...
[20:12] <fALSO> hi
[20:13] <gordonDrogon> it delays the inevitable :)
[20:13] <GabrialDestruir> True, but that doesn't necessarily mean impossible.
[20:13] <Dagger2> if you run the server, you don't need to discover the password... just replace it with one you know
[20:13] <Dagger2> or you can usually record the password when the user first enters it
[20:13] <GabrialDestruir> There's that too

[20:15] <chaoshax> Dagger2, Nothing that's what will have to change.
[20:15] <dwatkins> That's a bit like saying Linux will never become popular in 1995.
[20:15] <chaoshax> Major companies would have to get on the bandwagon for it to work.
[20:15] <dwatkins> Who knows what distros people will port to the RaspPi and what they will do with it?
[20:16] <chaoshax> It won't happen with friends hosting nodes between each other imo.
[20:16] <Dagger2> chaoshax: well, that's the advantage of federated protocols... anybody can set up a server
[20:16] <dwatkins> If people could buy a bindle with the Pi in a case and a ready-written SD Card, they don't even need to click to get it to work.
[20:16] <PhonicUK> i wanna port Android to the Pi
[20:16] <chaoshax> Dagger2, I mean, it could happen but it's unlikely because they already have access to social networks.
[20:16] <dwatkins> PhonicUK: I gather there isn't enough RAM, unfortunately
[20:16] <Dagger2> chaoshax: which means people can use Google's if they want, but if they're concerned about privacy they can sink the ??30 to buy a Raspberry Pi preloaded with the software
[20:16] <PhonicUK> dwatkins, my N900 has 256MB RAM and it runs Android 2.3 quite happily
[20:16] <Dagger2> or just set their own up themselves
[20:17] <dwatkins> PhonicUK: oh cool
[20:17] <chaoshax> Dagger2, Yeah, from my experience though people don't care.
[20:17] <PhonicUK> honeycomb/ics may be pushing it, but 2.3 should be attainable
[20:17] <chaoshax> I care but it doesn't mean that others do.
[20:17] <dwatkins> chaoshax: imagine if someone had said a couple hundred years ago that electricity wouldn't become popular... oh wait, they did
[20:18] <PhonicUK> they also said the internet would never be popular
[20:18] <PhonicUK> and the telephone
[20:18] <PhonicUK> or television
[20:18] <dwatkins> precisely
[20:18] <chaoshax> dwatkins, This is completely different, we are talking about closed social networks vs open source social networks.
[20:18] <dwatkins> who knows what might hapen, just saying it won't become popular is pointless, chaoshax
[20:18] <PhonicUK> they also said HD-DVD would be popular xD
[20:18] <dwatkins> how so, chaoshax?
[20:18] <Dagger2> chaoshax: which is why you really want a federated system, so you *can* set up your own server and still interact with everybody else
[20:18] <gordonDrogon> Android on the Pi? Wasn't there a heated debate on the forums about it? Or was that Windows, or both? I'm not sure I see the point, however ... good luck ...
[20:19] <dwatkins> gordonDrogon: indeed :)
[20:19] <RITRedbeard> cuz linux can't use a GSM modem
[20:19] <RITRedbeard> oh wait
[20:19] <chaoshax> Dagger2, Yes but actually for it to be popular we need to convert those using closed source networks.
[20:19] <gordonDrogon> I use a GSM modem on my Linux boxes..
[20:19] <dwatkins> why, chaoshax? plenty of people use Linux right now
[20:19] <gordonDrogon> and a 3G modem.
[20:19] <chaoshax> dwatkins, Popular, as in >50%
[20:19] <RITRedbeard> I was being faecitious
[20:19] <dwatkins> chaoshax: so Macs aren't popular?
[20:20] <dwatkins> Anime isn't popular?
[20:20] <chaoshax> dwatkins, No.
[20:20] <gordonDrogon> then again, I wrote a BASIC interpreter recently, and a lot of people can't see the point of that either :)
[20:20] <dwatkins> Having cats isn't popular?
[20:20] <chaoshax> Well cats might be.
[20:20] <chaoshax> Compared to other pets.
[20:20] * Gallomimia (~Gallo@S0106602ad08026fc.ca.shawcable.net) Quit (Quit: I am likely going to change locations)
[20:20] <dwatkins> Yeah, perhaps more than 50% of households have cats, but 50% isn't the definition of popular
[20:20] <dwatkins> if 100,000 people buy a product, I'd call that popular
[20:21] <gordonDrogon> ugh. just how long does ct-ng build take to build!
[20:21] <dwatkins> the fact there are more than a few people on this channel suggests it's popular, too
[20:21] <Dagger2> chaoshax: yes... I was just pointing out that your concern about "the owner of the node can access it" needs to *not* be a reason to avoid these federated networks, and it should rather be a reason to *want* to use them
[20:21] <chaoshax> dwatkins, matter of semantics really.
[20:22] <dwatkins> chaoshax: what kind of nodes are you referring to? There are many different possible uses for the Pi.
[20:22] <chaoshax> dwatkins, I am not talking about the pi, I was talking about social networks.
[20:22] <dwatkins> ah ok
[20:23] <dwatkins> are you saying they won't become popular?
[20:23] <chaoshax> I was saying that it's unlikely to in my opinion.
[20:23] <chaoshax> They would need a good reason to switch from facebook.
[20:23] <FrankBuss> gordonDrogon: this could run for some hours. http://elinux.org/RPi_Kernel_Compilation is much faster, if you just want to cross-compile a kernel, and not compile a compiler. but you might feel better when compiling a compiler :-)
[20:23] <chaoshax> Of course anyone who is in here knows why having an open standard social network is good.
[20:24] <dwatkins> I'm quite happy not having everyone on Google+, means I can have actual conversations on there
[20:24] <chaoshax> But try telling the public, they will just shrug their shoulders.
[20:24] <dwatkins> That's their choice, yeah.
[20:25] <chaoshax> I don't use facebook on the principle that pretty much anyone who knows a police officer can get hold of my data.
[20:25] <dwatkins> I prefer hanging out where there aren't huge numbers of people, like a forum I use, or certain IRC channels.

[20:32] <gordonDrogon> FrankBuss, it's done. 31 minutes.
[20:32] <dwatkins> I can think of a few examples, actually, mayski - someone might have moved home because they were being persecuted, bullied, stalked etc.
[20:33] <gordonDrogon> FrankBuss, now to work out how to use it to compile the kernel...
[20:33] <Gadgetoid_Air> gordonDrogon: do I smell a cross-compile environment? :D
[20:33] <mayski> someone being persecuted ups stuff on fb saying hey yeah I'm being persecuted but look at me?
[20:33] <nid0> if you've had to move because you're being persecuted, a simple solution then is to not upload geotagged photos to public places
[20:33] <mayski> sounds like they're being an idito
[20:34] <dwatkins> mayski: they just need to know their photos might be tagged - i.e. to turn off the option
[20:34] <FrankBuss> gordonDrogon: nice, I've done GCC compiliation once in Cygwin and it needed a day, because of the Cygwin overhead, really fast now on modern native Linux systems

[20:35] <nid0> gordonDrogon: fwiw compiling the kernel on-device is perfectly do-able
[20:35] <gordonDrogon> yes, I've installed a cross-compile envirnment.
[20:35] <Really_Likes_Nut> hey guys, bit of a noob question. should the Pi automatically mount USB drives and such? or do i need to do that manually?
[20:35] <chaoshax> I think manually.
[20:36] <chaoshax> Though you can edit fstab to do automatically.
[20:36] <FrankBuss> nid0, how long does it need on the device? in my Virtual Box Ubuntu installation it needs about 15 minutes after a "clean"
[20:36] <gordonDrogon> and successfully compiled hello world and tested it on both debian & raspbian.
[20:36] <Gadgetoid_Air> Is there an easy-mode cross-compile toolchain for lazy people like me?
[20:36] <Really_Likes_Nut> yeah i didnt really want to have to edit fstab, most of my experience is with Ubuntu which seems to do it for me
[20:36] <gordonDrogon> which is odd as I'd not really expect it to work on both due to the calling API differences
[20:36] <nid0> FrankBuss: yeah obv it takes a lot longer, i've seen ~6 hours quoted but mine finished in somewhere less than 5 this morning (wasnt timing, started it, came back ~5 hours later and it was done)

[20:39] <Really_Likes_Nut> is it not advisable to enable the swap partition? i see it in fstab but i guess it would increase wear on the SD card considerably?

[20:48] <craig1> piless_: No it isn't...
[20:49] <piless_> yeah it is
[20:49] <chaoshax> Just tell us the error.
[20:49] <Gadgetoid_Air> craig1: It is. The early Pi release wasn't intended for people who can't even source a working SD card :D
[20:49] <chaoshax> It could be the way you have formatted/ burned the image

[20:52] <PhonicUK> root does it, but my new user doesn't
[20:53] <Gadgetoid_Air> craig1: there's a wiki with a list of possibly working SD cards
[20:53] <chaoshax> craig1, you only had one sd card, consider the class 10s unlikely to work.
[20:53] <nid0> and as already mentioned, the incompatibility rate with <=class 6 cards is practically zero, so its fair to assume pebkac unless you actually spell out what error you're getting in more detail than "it doesnt work"
[20:53] <nid0> for the one card you tried that actually should work.
[20:53] <Gadgetoid_Air> I bought a couple using the wiki as a reference, and one of them works brilliantly, the other I haven't even tried

[21:01] <PhonRaspPi> only problem is that audio doesn't work right in raspbian
[21:01] <craig1> piless_: it's a 2gb card
[21:01] <chaoshax> Gadgetoid_Air, Umm I have apache, mysql all on mine :D
[21:02] <craig1> piless_: the physical card size is 2GB..that's why they're refering to when they say "2GB is supported...the overhead doesn't matter
[21:02] <Half-Shot> 2GB is ok, but expansion room is tight. You could do networking and hard drives but remember that its best to have it on the boot card
[21:02] <chaoshax> Fits quite well but I am probably really close to the edge.
[21:02] <Gadgetoid_Air> chaoshax: *shudder*??? not mysql :D
[21:02] <chaoshax> I removed it, it was fine for a while.
[21:02] <nid0> my pi's running lamp fine
[21:02] <Half-Shot> Actaully, did anyone get sound with their quake 3?
[21:03] <craig1> piless_: I think you're ego trippin'....just keep your ego to yourself ok?
[21:03] <PhonRaspPi> Half-Shot, I don't on my debian image
[21:03] <piless_> lol
[21:03] <PhonRaspPi> and i have otherwise working sound under debian
[21:03] <chaoshax> Gadgetoid, But I did struggle with owncloud.
[21:03] <Half-Shot> I have debian, hmm
[21:03] <PhonRaspPi> or did i...
[21:03] <chaoshax> Maybe nginx might be better
[21:03] <PhonRaspPi> i forget if i had sound
[21:03] <chaoshax> It was slooow.
[21:03] <PhonRaspPi> no i dont think i did
[21:03] <Gadgetoid_Air> I'm avoiding mysql on the Pi, just don't think I can spare the RAM to get any decent performance out of it
[21:03] <Half-Shot> la hexxeh used chromium
[21:03] <chaoshax> Yeah I took it off.
[21:04] <Gadgetoid_Air> I'm exploring couchdb and redis, weird and wonderful new concepts
[21:04] <PhonRaspPi> ive used chromium, it works okay until you run out of RAM xD
[21:04] <nid0> pi's lack of RTC does screw with mysql a bit, i've just noticed
[21:04] <nid0> Uptime: 15486 days 19 hours 2 min 5 sec
[21:04] <craig1> chaoshax: hmm it booted...
[21:04] <Half-Shot> Raspberry pi is leaps and bounds better at managing my memory ( 256mb seems to last longer than 8GB)

[21:06] <PhonRaspPi> tjat really sucks
[21:06] <Half-Shot> RS is going to get it back and repaired as soon as they finish up orders.

[21:09] <PhonRaspPi> its easy to update
[21:09] <craig1> there's an update already?
[21:09] <PhonRaspPi> fixes a lot of SD issues
[21:09] <Gadgetoid_Air> The SD card thing is a hot topic, anyway, they've even put out a call for non-working SD cards for investigation
[21:10] <PhonRaspPi> so far ive tried PNY and Integral cards
[21:10] <Half-Shot> Used these files : https://nodeload.github.com/Hexxeh/rpi-firmware/
[21:10] <PhonRaspPi> 1x 16GB SDHC integral, and 4x 8GB PNY cards
[21:10] <PhonRaspPi> all class 6

[21:12] <chaoshax> I want to print loads of stuff.
[21:12] <Gadgetoid_Air> fragalot: brohoof anyway :D print you the pony for the awesome power
[21:12] <fragalot> took me 4 days to get this thing working
[21:12] <chaoshax> I actually have about 5 things I need to print right now.
[21:12] <PhonRaspPi> I want a makerbot

[21:43] <piless_> chaoshax: have you seen wild china?
[21:43] <mkopack> GabrialDestruir: Because the TV Execs LOVE "reality" TV because it's relatively cheap to produce and frickin idiot women LOVE them??? anything that takes a little brainpower to appreciate costs more to make and attracts a smaller audience so they can't make as much money on it

[21:50] <piless_> GabrialDestruir: or they die
[21:50] <mkopack> GabrialDestruir: I feel your pain. I'm SOO tired of every show I get invested in getting cancelled??? Especially when they cancel it at the end of a season and leave a cliffhanger ending??? Couldn't they just make 1 more damn episode to close out the story???
[21:51] <piless_> sci fi channel is the most guitly
[21:51] <GabrialDestruir> I'd say NBC is more guilty then sci fi
[21:51] <mkopack> Oh, I've pretty much written off Sci Fi altogether
[21:51] <GabrialDestruir> They cancel just about everything after one season
[21:51] <mkopack> NBC owns Sci Fi
[21:52] <GabrialDestruir> See? Then blame the parent company :p
[21:52] <GabrialDestruir> It is after all their fault.
[21:52] <piless_> all the good shows come from amc or hbo
[21:52] <mkopack> The big problem here is that there's too many channels so the content is diluted.
[21:52] <mkopack> They need random crap to fill all the programming slots

[21:53] <GabrialDestruir> Good stuff is getting canceled because too many "new" shows are going up against time tested shows
[21:53] <GabrialDestruir> So in the end the "new" shows get bumped.
[21:53] <mkopack> and the big 4 Networks need to make so much off advertising to afford their shows, that if they aren't immediate hits, they have to axe them quick to stop losing money
[21:54] <mkopack> yeah, I don't get why the hell they put some untested new show up against a powerhouse. Find another slot to put the new show in so it has a chance to build some viewership and THEN once it's successful move it against the powerhouse
[21:54] <GabrialDestruir> The problem is they're not taking into consideration I think, things like online streaming, DVR views, etc
[21:54] <mkopack> yeah, well, they don't because people watching that way skip commercials so they can't get advertising revenue from them
[21:55] <GabrialDestruir> When people are limited to one or two (dvr recordings) channels, then when they can't watch that third show they're going to resort to places like hulu
[21:55] <GabrialDestruir> or netflix
[21:55] <mkopack> the whole TV model is becoming broken, the same way the music and movie industry have been - their way of making money doesn't work in the modern world

[21:55] <piless_> it takes the piss, game of thrones is the most pirated tv show of 2012, do you know why? Because you can't get it legitately anywhere, you need a cable subscription to watch it online, there's no dvd release, nothing
[21:56] <GabrialDestruir> There's DVD releases...
[21:56] <GabrialDestruir> but only after it's been aired.
[21:56] <mkopack> yeah, and the fact that it airs on different days in different countries doesn't help either
[21:57] <piless_> the first season dvd took a year after it first aired.
[21:57] <chattel> does the pi support 3.3V gpio ports?
[21:57] <piless_> A YEAR!
[21:57] <GabrialDestruir> I don't think it's becoming fully broken, it's more like... there's the advancement in technology, but the CEO's are all those old guys who are like "COMPUTERS WE DONT NEED COMPUTERS WHY BACK IN MY DAY....."
[21:57] <mkopack> Or in the case of Battlestar Galactica, you Europeans would often get it before we would here, and our episodes would be edited down more so they could fit in another commercial..
[21:57] <GabrialDestruir> They still do that
[21:57] <piless_> mkopack: as a european I am fine with that
[21:57] <mkopack> chattel: YEs, the GPIO are 3.3V
[21:58] <GabrialDestruir> Like with Doctor Who
[21:58] <mkopack> Just air it everywhere at the same time, and don't edit it differently and people will be less incentivized to pirate it
[21:58] <GabrialDestruir> They trim three or four minutes out for america so we get more commercials

[22:09] <GabrialDestruir> All news has an agenda
[22:09] <craig1> exactly
[22:09] <DaQatz> Lol O'Reilly is an idiot.
[22:09] <craig1> I'm dumbfounded that someome would doubt that
[22:09] <GabrialDestruir> The very fact of reporting the news to the masses means there's an agenda there.
[22:09] <craig1> yup
[22:09] <DaQatz> Both conservatives and liberals laugh at him.

[23:20] <sjs205> *bigger
[23:20] <sjs205> Yeah, we that is generally what I've been doing for my embedded devices over the last 3 years... I just want something quick and dirty to test...
[23:20] <mkopack> Like I said, you CAN do it where you start the boot off the small SD card, and put root over on a USB drive. I actually do that
[23:20] <sjs205> I'll have to rob the sd card from the gf's camera!
[23:21] <sjs205> any notes available for that?
[23:21] <PhonicUK> download image, dd on to sd card, boot
[23:21] <PhonicUK> tadah
[23:21] <PhonicUK> backup sd first of course since its contents will be lost
[23:21] <D34TH> make sure to back up nude photos
[23:21] <D34TH> then dd
[23:22] <sjs205> PhonicUK, yeah sure...
[23:22] <mkopack> Unpack the image to the USB drive/stick??? Then copy the contents of the first (FAT) partition to a FAT partition on the small SD card.
[23:22] <sjs205> D34TH, no...
[23:22] <mkopack> Then edit the boot.scr file so it points to the USB drive instead of the MMC device
[23:22] <PhonicUK> mkopack, all unnecessary :P
[23:23] <mkopack> PhonicUK: That's what I was told to do to do it
[23:23] <mkopack> Works fine
[23:23] <PhonicUK> i have everything on the SD card, no external storage
[23:23] <piless_> http://i.imgur.com/6lPpp.jpg
[23:23] <sjs205> so come on PhonicUK, what to do instead? just dd the image to the sdcard and forget what it doesn't write?
[23:23] <mkopack> Right, I'm saying if he wants to run off external and use a really small SD card to boot off of
[23:24] <mkopack> And to be honest, it runs a LOT smoother off USB than SD
[23:24] <PhonicUK> i cant imagine why, the performance should be pretty similar
[23:24] <mkopack> The SD cards I had were getting at most 20MB/s
[23:24] <mkopack> USB has a lot more bandwidth
[23:24] <PhonicUK> what class?
[23:24] <mkopack> 6
[23:24] <piless_> usb only has 30
[23:25] <PhonicUK> and i doubt most flash chips put into USB drives are much faster
[23:25] <mkopack> How do you figure? 480 MBit = 60 MByte
[23:25] <PhonicUK> because while USB is capable of that, the flash chips in the actual device are almost certainly not that fast
[23:25] <mkopack> I'm using a cheap small SSD hooked up across USB

[23:46] <gordonDrogon> yea, not without some issues )-:
[23:46] <FrankBuss> gordonDrogon: nice, you've managed to compile your kernel. sorry if I have annoyed you with my message, my assumption was that your main goal was that you can use your 1-wire hardware, but you can still try it on your own. at least now you know that it is possible :-) http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=44&t=6649

[23:46] <gordonDrogon> mmc0: Controller never released inhibit bit(s).
[23:46] <gordonDrogon> after a few pages of related whinges at boot time.
[23:47] <FrankBuss> I had a similar problem with one SD card, changing to a SanDisk fixed it
[23:47] <gordonDrogon> this card has been solid since forver )-:
[23:47] <bootc> gordonDrogon: yep, there are MMC issues that seem to show up particularly well in my branch
[23:47] <bootc> indeed switching cards seems to fix it for most people
[23:48] <FrankBuss> or using old versions of the SD card driver :-)
[23:48] <gordonDrogon> I have a bunch of these cards - got them as they worked when my transcend one didn't...
[23:48] <gordonDrogon> maybe I'll give my transcend one a go...
[23:48] <shaulkr> PhonicUK: /etc/rc2.d is a directory containing symlinks to whatever is started on boot
[23:49] <shaulkr> You shouldn't edit it manually, tough
[23:49] <shaulkr> chkconfig is convenient
[23:50] <gordonDrogon> right. let me shut it down & copy the image to a transcend one..
[23:50] <bootc> gordonDrogon: I have a transcend 2GB card that appears to work fine for me
[23:50] <bootc> well, a microsd
[23:50] <GabrialDestruir> I'm about to give up on this HDD -sighs-
[23:50] <gordonDrogon> heh - my transcend worked with the 2nd debian image released them never worked well for the 3rd one...
[23:50] <bootc> PhonicUK: update-rc.d <service> disable
[23:50] <bootc> and similarly for enable
