[0:00] <gordonDrogon> optimising your desktop?
[0:00] <GabrialDestruir> It's an Intel Desktop...
[0:00] <gordonDrogon> a-ha...
[0:01] <GabrialDestruir> Which is where my confusion comes in.
[0:01] <gordonDrogon> I hae an amd 3-core thing - maybe it's being comtaminated...
[0:01] <GabrialDestruir> I officially give up on USB 3
[0:01] <GabrialDestruir> It's clearly a worthless protocol/design/whatever
[0:02] <gordonDrogon> what speeds did you get out of your hdd?
[0:02] <GabrialDestruir> Each trasnfer starts with some really great speeds....
[0:02] <GabrialDestruir> 300MB/s 200MB/s
[0:02] <GabrialDestruir> etc
[0:02] <GabrialDestruir> and they all slowly dwindle down to between 20-60MB/s
[0:03] <gordonDrogon> sure it's not the HDD?
[0:03] <GabrialDestruir> dunno...
[0:03] <shaulkr> Sounds like a fragmented filesystem
[0:03] <gordonDrogon> head bandwidth won't be more than 100MB/sec on a newish drive...
[0:03] <shaulkr> Is it stable after it slows down?
[0:03] <gordonDrogon> and I suspect much less on a uSB drive -low power and all that.
[0:04] <GabrialDestruir> Once it gets down to USB 2 speeds it's stable
[0:04] <GabrialDestruir> yea

[0:04] * PiBot sets mode +v Da|Mummy
[0:04] <shaulkr> You said 20-60..
[0:04] * btothertotheatot (~noname@71-13-17-85.dhcp.dlth.mn.charter.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:04] * PiBot sets mode +v btothertotheatot
[0:04] <btothertotheatot> hey everybody, thanks. After I re-imaged the SD card it worked fine.
[0:04] <btothertotheatot> not sure why it didn't work the first time
[0:05] <Dagger2> 20-60 MB/s is closer to what you'd expect from a single HDD
[0:05] <GabrialDestruir> From my understanding anything under 40MB/s is to be considered USB2 speeds
[0:05] <Dagger2> and 200-300 MB/s is way above what you can do from a single drive
[0:05] <shaulkr> The 200-300 figure could be from the drive's cache
[0:05] * chnopsx (~textual@5353B62E.cm-6-4c.dynamic.ziggo.nl) Quit ()
[0:05] <GabrialDestruir> and it always ends up below 40
[0:05] <Dagger2> also, USB 2.0 gets about 30 MB/s maximum, so anything above that is an improvement
[0:05] <zgreg> a single HDD easily does over 100 MB/s nowadays, for sequential reads
[0:05] <shaulkr> Try reading it raw using dd or pv
[0:05] <gordonDrogon> I'd check the actual drive speed/spec.
[0:06] <zgreg> so yeah, USB 2.0 is a serious bottleneck
[0:06] <gordonDrogon> shaulkr, he's on a WinPc...
[0:06] <Dagger2> shaulkr: which is going to be, what, 64 MB max? so you'd get 200 MB/s for 300ms if the entire cache happened to be filled with the file you wanted
[0:07] <shaulkr> Disk caches don't work like OS caches, they don't hold commonly used files
[0:08] <GabrialDestruir> Can't find any proper specs from seagate -.-
[0:08] <GabrialDestruir> Blah
[0:08] <shaulkr> They're for when the disk reads faster than its controller can acquire the bus
[0:10] <shaulkr> Which happens a lot with USB because devices can't send data without first being polled by the host
[0:11] <mjr> that's actually something that's adressed in usb3
[0:11] <mjr> but good point
[0:13] * BCMM (~ben@unaffiliated/bcmm) Quit (Quit: Konversation terminated!)

[0:19] <Gadgetoid_Air> What's USB? Is it like a crappy thunderbolt?
[0:19] <gordonDrogon> well the transcend card still throws up ext4 filesystems errors with new kernel, however it doesnb't go through the whole mmc0: error -110 whilst initialising SD card think that the Kingston one does.

[0:37] <PhonRaspPi> so it seems Raspbian is faster than Debian, if less functional
[0:39] <Gadgetoid_Air> Every time you build a website with 1and1, God kills a kitten. Just sayin'
[0:39] <Da|Mummy> shut up Gadgetoid_Air
[0:39] <haltdef> pretty much, though that should change
[0:39] <PhonRaspPi> raspbian also uses a lot less RAM

[0:40] <amelia_> ha
[0:40] <haltdef> PhonRaspPi, what couldn't you do with raspbian that you could on the armel squeeze image?

[0:41] <PhonRaspPi> nor does it seem to ship with the appropriate modules for accelerated 3D
[0:41] <PhonRaspPi> bth of which work fine on the debian image
[0:41] <Gadgetoid_Air> Da|Mummy: ah, you'll catch up in a year or two then! I can't be bothered to sit in front of a computer for Diablo 3, I'll wait for the watered-down console release

[1:08] * PiBot sets mode +v Charlie__
[1:09] <haltdef> how so
[1:10] <SpeedEvil> It's a couple of years old now.
[1:10] <SpeedEvil> Its RAM and CPU speed were very impressive when launched.
[1:10] <haltdef> still not a board that beats it is there
[1:10] <PhonicUK> 1GB RAM and a 1.2Ghz CPU
[1:10] <SpeedEvil> That's why I'm asking.
[1:11] <PhonicUK> sits in line with a galaxy S2
[1:11] <PhonicUK> ?114 for one new
[1:11] <SpeedEvil> And, yes, it does.
[1:11] <SpeedEvil> It's impressive.
[1:11] <haltdef> it's not old either, ES was released november/december 2011 iirc
[1:11] <SpeedEvil> It's just not quite comparable to the top-of-the-line boards.
[1:11] <SpeedEvil> multicore, for example.
[1:12] <PhonicUK> the pandaboard es is a dual core
[1:12] <SpeedEvil> It is?
[1:12] <SpeedEvil> oops
[1:12] <haltdef> yes
[1:12] <kwixson_> Not a lot of information about how to get a webcam working on the RPi
[1:12] <SpeedEvil> kwixson_: Well - ...
[1:12] <GabrialDestruir> Curious if you compress a file using NTFS compression is that going to make the HDD wear out quicker or no?
[1:12] <PhonicUK> kwixson_, thats because theres not a lot of information at all on the RPi
[1:13] <SpeedEvil> kwixson_: you plug a supported webcam in.
[1:13] <SpeedEvil> GabrialDestruir: no.
[1:13] <PhonicUK> http://uk.mouser.com/ProductDetail/PandaBoard/UEVM4460G-02-01-00/?qs=raY79WRVTyM0YGyzsmKUwn1yuSxe8x5AEEBXOZGyTg0%3d
[1:13] <haltdef> ??122 exc VAT
[1:13] <kwixson_> SpeedEvil: I did that, and bupkis
[1:13] <haltdef> that dissapointed me a little when I discovered it was exc vat
[1:13] <haltdef> mouser wer fantastic otherwise
[1:14] <SpeedEvil> kwixson_: What happened.
[1:14] <PhonicUK> still not that bad
[1:14] <SpeedEvil> Did it appear on lsusb?
[1:14] <SpeedEvil> Was it plugged into a powered hub?
[1:14] <haltdef> any customs or shipping fees covered by them
[1:14] <ShiftPlusOne> kwixson_, I don't think there's anything pi-specific, it's either supported by linux or it's not, so check that your webcam works on linux, find out what driver it uses and use it.
[1:14] <PhonicUK> its still < ?150
[1:14] <SpeedEvil> What were you trying to use it with
[1:14] <haltdef> plus psu
[1:14] <haltdef> ??17 for that
[1:14] <haltdef> cost me ??177 overall
[1:15] <PhonicUK> im pretty sure it can be powered via its OTG connector
[1:15] <kwixson_> SpeedEvil: Yes. Logitech Webcam Pro 9000

[1:15] <PhonicUK> ah
[1:16] <SpeedEvil> kwixson_: Powered hub?
[1:16] <PhonicUK> whats the pis max draw?
[1:16] <haltdef> 700ma
[1:16] <ShiftPlusOne> kwixson_, did you compile a kernel with uvc support?
[1:16] <kwixson_> ShiftPlusOne: "find out what driver it uses and use it" ... Ok. How do I do that.
[1:16] <haltdef> I got the panda's recommended psu, 4A
[1:16] <SpeedEvil> kwixson_: The logitech 9000 uses the linux UVC driver.
[1:16] <kwixson_> SpeedEvil: Powered USB hub, yes.
[1:16] <SpeedEvil> haltdef: What's the pandas idle current?
[1:17] <SpeedEvil> haltdef: Does it properly powersave?
[1:17] <haltdef> I dunno and I believe so
[1:17] <kwixson_> ShiftPlusOne: "compile a kernel with UFC support" ... Haven't done that. How?
[1:17] * [XeN] (~XenGi@ Quit (Ping timeout: 245 seconds)
[1:17] <haltdef> ARM cores definitely downclock
[1:17] <SpeedEvil> haltdef: Oh - I know.
[1:17] <SpeedEvil> haltdef: Downclocking isn't it though.
[1:18] <SpeedEvil> haltdef: For example - my n900 does about 2mA in software suspend, 3mA idle.
[1:18] <SpeedEvil> lowest clock - is still quite spendy
[1:18] <PhonicUK> kwixson_, its certainly a non-trivial excercise if you've never compiled a kernel before
[1:18] <PhonicUK> you'll need another linux machine with a cross compilation environment
[1:18] <SpeedEvil> Isn't gcc available on th epi?
[1:19] <SpeedEvil> The kernel will take well under an hour.
[1:19] <SpeedEvil> Can be easier than screwing with crosscompile.
[1:19] <ShiftPlusOne> kwixson_, steps on how to compile a kernel are up on the wiki, I believe.
[1:20] <kwixson_> SpeedEvil: That certainly sounds like a better option if possible.
[1:20] <PhonicUK> also true
[1:20] <ShiftPlusOne> kwixson_, the options you'll need to enable are here https://github.com/raspberrypi/linux/issues/21
[1:20] <PhonicUK> i compiled quake3 on the pi itself
[1:20] <PhonicUK> took 45 minutes or so
[1:20] <kwixson_> Does the wiki include specific instructions on including uvc support?
[1:21] <PhonicUK> probably not, but that'll be the easy bit
[1:21] <ShiftPlusOne> SpeedEvil, I am not sure that well under an hour is right. To cross compile the kernel you just give the path to where it is in menuconfig, so there's no screwing around at all.
[1:22] <ShiftPlusOne> SpeedEvil, I've tried to compile a kernel on the pi, but it barely chugged along. I'll admit I didn't wait too long, but it didn't seem reasonable.
[1:22] <kwixson_> I love it when people say, "it's yeasty
[1:23] <kwixson_> Er... Say, "It's easy. You just need to..." and then say something that makes sense only to experts.
[1:23] <ShiftPlusOne> kwixson_, I'll be glad to help you out.

[1:24] <SpeedEvil> ShiftPlusOne: you may find -J 4 makes it go daster
[1:24] <SpeedEvil> ShiftPlusOne: that assumes also you have a working environment for crosscomplies.

[1:28] <craig1> yeah I know..just wondering

[1:28] <craig1> I'd just like to know how it runs

[1:33] <ShiftPlusOne> kwixson_, the reason the wiki can't cover every single step for your exact use case is that not everyone needs webcam support. Some people will want support for outdated hardware, and all sorts of things, so instead of trying to accomodate everyone, the wiki just gives the steps to compile the kernel and it's up to you to decide what you need to enable (the important stuff is provided)
[1:33] <piless_> craig1: skpang sell a case

[1:47] <kwixson_> I can always make it up to date if so instructed.
[1:48] <PhonicUK> kwixson_, are you using debian?
[1:48] <PhonicUK> or raspian
[1:48] <kwixson_> Debian
[1:48] <piless_> use hexxeh's updater
[1:48] <PhonicUK> kwixson_, http://hexxeh.net/?p=328117855
[1:48] <ShiftPlusOne> don't know about debian, but on arch you can just update the relevant packages.
[1:48] <PhonicUK> its really straightforward
[1:49] <PhonicUK> kwixson_, also give raspian a try if you've got another SD card, its pretty neat
[1:49] <kwixson_> ShiftPlusOne: I did run apt-get upgrade
[1:49] <ShiftPlusOne> kwixson_, should be fine then.
[1:49] <craig1> Does arch package and update the bootloader?
[1:50] <PhonicUK> i doubt it
[1:50] <piless_> there is no bootloader

[1:50] * PiBot sets mode +v RITRedbeard__
[1:50] <PhonicUK> right, thats the code that needs updating
[1:51] <ShiftPlusOne> craag, yes.
[1:51] <PhonicUK> blimey, my Pi really suffers when I use the wifi
[1:51] <craig1> yeah but from what I understand..it lives on the SD Card
[1:51] <ShiftPlusOne> craag? *craig1
[1:51] <craig1> so surely it's packageable
[1:51] <PhonicUK> craig1, no it doesnt
[1:51] <PhonicUK> hmm, my pi took 16 minutes to download 14mb :|
[1:52] <ShiftPlusOne> PhonicUK, what's on the GPU is fairly minimal and irrelevant. It's just the minimum required to load the important stuff which is on the SD.
[1:52] <craig1> ShiftPlusOne: so something like Hexxeh's updater is redundant for Arch?
[1:52] <PhonicUK> i thought that was the bit being updated
[1:52] <piless_> no
[1:52] <PhonicUK> ah
[1:52] <craig1> PhonicUK: The GPU is the loader
[1:52] <PhonicUK> aye i know that
[1:52] <craig1> the firmware is still an external image

[1:53] <PhonicUK> more or less boring than gentoo?
[1:53] <craig1> is it a license issue?
[1:53] <piless_> little less
[1:54] <ShiftPlusOne> craag, I thought they did. =/

[2:24] <craig1> PhonicUK: If you don't use .NET there's no need for an IDE

[2:37] <PhonicUK> this is fast
[2:37] <ShiftPlusOne> lies
[2:37] <PhonicUK> took a while for the game to start, but it runs fast
[2:37] <kwixson_> ShiftPlusOne: Okay, so that one booted
[2:37] <huene> which game are you plaing?
[2:37] <PhonicUK> boppin
[2:38] <craig1> most distros are using software floating point
[2:38] <craig1> maybe why so things seem slower than others
[2:38] <craig1> some*
[2:38] <PhonicUK> im using raspbian right now
[2:38] <craig1> I think Fedora 17 will be HardFP
[2:38] <PhonicUK> does doxbox depend on X11, or will it run on the FB?
[2:39] <ShiftPlusOne> ah yeah, simple games work well enough in dosbox on pi
[2:39] <ShiftPlusOne> prince of persia almost worked kind of ok, but still slow.
[2:39] <PhonicUK> this feels more like X is struggling though
[2:39] <GabrialDestruir> I have to say...
[2:39] <ShiftPlusOne> kwixson_, any luck?
[2:39] <GabrialDestruir> I like the idea of Light Table
[2:40] <arfonzo> evening all, is anyone using arch and X?
[2:40] <ShiftPlusOne> arfonzo, yup
[2:40] <PhonicUK> oooh i gotta play commander keen on this thing!
[2:40] <arfonzo> how is it? sluggish?
[2:40] <PhonicUK> X is sluggish on every distro
[2:40] * Meatballs is now known as Meatballs|Away
[2:40] <PhonicUK> due to the lack of acceleration
[2:40] <ShiftPlusOne> arfonzo, it's how you'd expect it to be
[2:40] <arfonzo> ok.
[2:40] <PhonicUK> but that should be resolved in due course

[2:41] <arfonzo> Is there a problem with using a swap partition on the SD card?
[2:41] <PhonicUK> nop?
[2:41] <ShiftPlusOne> I think so
[2:42] <PhonicUK> eeee :D boppin is playable :D
[2:42] <PhonicUK> its fun
[2:42] <Tachyon`> don't put swap on SD
[2:43] <Tachyon`> it will be horribly slow and reduce the life of the card
[2:43] <ShiftPlusOne> ^ yup
[2:43] <SpeedEvil> Swap may be horribly, horribly slow on SD.
[2:43] <PhonicUK> put it on USB storage?
[2:43] <GabrialDestruir> Time to load up debian.
[2:43] <ccssnet> great way to kill the SD chip. also usb flashes ^
[2:43] <Tachyon`> ideally, yes
[2:43] <arfonzo> ok, this is what I thought. Thanks.
[2:44] <Tachyon`> I think I'm going to attach a small 2.5" USB hard disk to mine via a usb to SATA casing, it's about the size of the pi and will igve it something to rest on
[2:44] <ShiftPlusOne> but you will have people arguing that it won't affect the sd card life
[2:44] <ShiftPlusOne> (but they're wrong)
[2:44] <Tachyon`> lol
[2:44] <kwixson_> ShiftPlusOne: It did something. Now instead of saying no device found, Cheese has a rotating graphic for a minute then crashes.
[2:44] <GabrialDestruir> I wonder if you could setup a network swap file xD
[2:44] <ccssnet> they make microdisks
[2:44] <Tachyon`> GabrialDestruir, my old VPS provider had all the filesystems networked
[2:44] <Tachyon`> but didn't tell us
[2:44] <ShiftPlusOne> kwixson_, try using something other than cheese, just in case.
[2:44] <Tachyon`> then shut down the VM I was paying for because I was "DoSing the storage server"
[2:44] * Tachyon` rolls eyes
[2:45] <craig1> Linux doesn't really use swap much unless you trigger OOM conditions anyway
[2:45] <craig1> but swap is required for memory mapped files
[2:45] <Tachyon`> (as I'd activated a swapfile to extend the 256MB or so I was allocated)
[2:47] <ccssnet> GabrialDestruir: probably can do such but id suggest at minimum 1gb ethernet
[2:47] <craig1> http://www.linuxjournal.com/article/10678
[2:47] <plugwash> iirc nbd is swap safe
[2:47] <plugwash> dunno about nfs
[2:47] <ShiftPlusOne> kwixson_, also, check dmesg for anything interesting.

[2:49] <craig1> it's a schoolboy error to think swap is useless
[2:50] <D34TH> i use swap sometiems
[2:50] <D34TH> its pretty useful in a few applications
[2:50] <craig1> the simplified idea that swap is "for when you run out of RAM" is wrong
[2:50] <GabrialDestruir> Guys
[2:50] <GabrialDestruir> you can get an additional 3GBs of storage by importing pictures
[2:50] <GabrialDestruir> >.>
[2:50] <GabrialDestruir> for
[2:50] <GabrialDestruir> Dropbox
[2:51] <D34TH> :D
[2:51] <GabrialDestruir> Looks like you get a 500MB bonus for each "import"
[2:51] <kwixson_> ShiftPlusOne: VLC gives me an alsa error... But it does turn on the web cam and behind the error message the display window shows a still from the webcam...but then the machine is frozen.
[2:51] <GabrialDestruir> Up to 3GBs
[2:52] <GabrialDestruir> Take a USB stick.... toss a DCIM folder on it, and put some pics in it xD
[2:52] <ShiftPlusOne> GabrialDestruir, where is the import pictures thing?
[2:52] <arfonzo> so what is the best way to setup a swap partition on the RPi?
[2:53] <GabrialDestruir> Mine is popping up automatically when I insert USB devices.
[2:53] <ShiftPlusOne> kwixson_, no idea then, you'd need to do a bit of investigating
[2:53] <kwixson_> ShiftPlusOne: Yeah. I think I'm going to start over.
[2:53] <kwixson_> Thanks for trying!
[2:54] <ShiftPlusOne> kwixson_, either way, you'll need a kernel and modules with UVC support.
[2:55] <GabrialDestruir> Every 500 MB you upload via the Camera Upload feature bumps you up another 500 MB
[2:55] <craig1> arfonzo: The debian image does it for you I think
[2:56] <craig1> I think it gives you boot/swap/root partitions
[2:56] * XeCrypt is now known as Tuxuser
[2:56] <craig1> because the Debian guys are sensible enough to know better ;)
[2:57] <GabrialDestruir> https://www.dropbox.com/help/287
[2:57] <arfonzo> craig1: ok, but what about all this hubbub about it shortening the lifespan of media?
[2:57] <craig1> arfonzo: it isn't used much anyway
[2:58] <ShiftPlusOne> GabrialDestruir, thanks
[2:58] <craig1> so you don't need to worry
[2:58] <GabrialDestruir> Now if only we had an ARM version of dropbox, eh?
[2:58] <arfonzo> fair enough. I've got no problem of manually creating a swap (I'm using arch).
[2:58] <arfonzo> thanks.
[2:59] <Tachyon`> you don't need swap partitions, you can create swap files on any mounted fileystem
[2:59] <Tachyon`> that work in much the same way
[2:59] <craig1> yeah that's true...you could use a USB hard drive for swap
[3:00] <arfonzo> Tachyon`: I know, but I prefer partitions.
[3:00] <craig1> or an old throwaway 1GB flash drive or something
[3:00] <GabrialDestruir> I suppose you could always just Samba Share your DP folder then mount it to your current Distro
[3:00] <GabrialDestruir> DB*
[3:01] <Tachyon`> I wonder if anyone has done usb -> sata -> ssd, the small ones are dead cheap now (30GB or so)
[3:01] <Tachyon`> and in some cases tiny
[3:01] <craig1> Tachyon`: I have a 64GB SSD in an external USB caddy
[3:01] <craig1> SSDs use flash memory too
[3:02] <Tachyon`> well, yes, but differently
[3:02] <Tachyon`> they're much faster
[3:02] <craig1> yeah they're multi-channel flash
[3:02] <craig1> and the have TRIM to avoid wearing out the drive
[3:02] <craig1> hence they're more "swap-safe"
[3:02] <Tachyon`> and given people are using them for windows I assume wear leveling works quite well on them
[3:02] <Tachyon`> yeah, it'll still reduce the life but perhaps not too much
[3:03] <craig1> most sources I've read claims the lifetime of an SSD is better than an old HDD now

[3:06] <GabrialDestruir> So what I just make a second partition and load whatever my second distro is onto it and good to go?
[3:06] <Tachyon`> think one of those would be large enough for the pi os/swap
[3:06] <Tachyon`> while we don't have TRIM on SD all SD cards have wear level algorithms
[3:06] <Tachyon`> in fact the only flash standard that doesnt' is smartmedia which is just an exposed chip in effect
[3:06] <ShiftPlusOne> GabrialDestruir, that's the idea. I am still tweaking it to work exactly how I want, but the basic idea works.
[3:07] <Viperfang> Tachyon`: same as XD
[3:07] <SpeedEvil> SD cards have wear leveling algorithms that are unpublished, and optimising for one card will pessimise for another.
[3:07] <Tachyon`> you don't optimise at all
[3:07] <Tachyon`> you let the algorithm do its work
[3:07] <GabrialDestruir> Eh... it's gonna need a bit of work, and not just the Grub idea, but the rest of it too.
[3:07] <Tachyon`> you try to optimise you'll make it the same or worse, lol
[3:07] <GabrialDestruir> We need like a....
[3:07] <ShiftPlusOne> GabrialDestruir, rest of what?
[3:07] <GabrialDestruir> Program or something
[3:08] <GabrialDestruir> to choose distros from
[3:08] <mkopack> piless: http://www.flickr.com/photos/astro_andre/7272241704/lightbox/
[3:08] <ShiftPlusOne> GabrialDestruir, it's just a linux kernel with a simple initrd with a menu to select the kernel you want... then it uses kexec to launch it. Simple.
[3:08] <craig1> I think TRIM is the same...OS support is the OS doing the work...it's just being aware of it and staying out of it's way
[3:08] <mervaka> you can optimise delayed write size/frequency though, right?
[3:08] <craig1> **isn't the OS doing the work*
[3:09] <mervaka> or am i talking out my arse
[3:09] <GabrialDestruir> Right that parts simple, the hard part is getting it all partitioned properly.
[3:09] <plugwash> the trouble with SD cards is you don't know if they have generic wear leveling like a SSD, wear leveling specifically designed arround a single fat parition or no wear leveling at all
[3:09] <plugwash> because the manufacturers don't publish any details of the internals
[3:09] <GabrialDestruir> With the current method of "installing" an OS the install of a dualboot would be a pain in the neck.
[3:10] <ShiftPlusOne> GabrialDestruir, is it? make the partitions, mount the partitions you need, copy the files and you're set.
[3:10] <mervaka> once youve booted grub you should be okay
[3:11] <ShiftPlusOne> no grub on pi
[3:11] <ShiftPlusOne> on arm even
[3:11] <GabrialDestruir> It'd be easier if you had just a system.img to work from, not having to go in and pull the system from whatever disk image
[3:11] <mervaka> can it not run it at all?
[3:11] <mervaka> :/
[3:11] <ShiftPlusOne> mervaka, grub is an x86 thing, I believe.
[3:11] <mervaka> ah
[3:12] <ShiftPlusOne> GabrialDestruir, Maybe an installer might be a feature to work on for the 'bootloader' to automate it.
[3:12] <Tachyon`> you can mount a disk image though, using loopback fs and an offset
[3:12] <PhonicUK> sleepy time
[3:12] <PhonicUK> night all
[3:12] <Tachyon`> it's a pain in the arse but it is doable
[3:12] <GabrialDestruir> It would definitely make it easier though.
[3:13] <Tachyon`> aye, indeed
[3:13] <ShiftPlusOne> not sure if the effort is worth it though since mounting the disk images isn't hard
[3:13] <GabrialDestruir> Yea, Tachyon`, I agree it's possible, but for your average user that's more than they'd want to do.
[3:13] <Tachyon`> your average user probably won't need multiboot cards, lol

[3:15] <Tachyon`> excuse you?
[3:15] <Hexxeh|Pi> time to find out whether i can actually use the Pi as my desktop for a day and not go mad
[3:16] <Tachyon`> it has a powerful basic and a good assembler, it's not a toy OS (and win95 took a lot of ideas from it, heh)

[3:16] <Hexxeh|Pi> ShiftPlusOne, nah, just general stuff like IRC/MSN/email
[3:17] <ShiftPlusOne> heh, I know
[3:17] <Tachyon`> it is in fact a good OS for people to learn on, hell, I learned with BBC Basic and its 6502 assembler at school in the 1980s (although I had a ZX81 first for myself so ended up learning Z80 too)
[3:17] <plugwash> is riscos still a cooperative multitasker?

[3:19] <Tachyon`> that's a good thing
[3:20] <Tachyon`> do you know how rarely I have to build things myself now?
[3:20] <craig1> rarely I guess
[3:20] <Viperfang> My problem with debian is the dependency tree
[3:20] <craig1> sometimes I want to repackage something though
[3:20] <hamitron> pros and cons for most things, everyone can pick as they want/need :)
[3:20] <mkopack> GabrialDestruir: the normal debian distro for the Pi is build for ARM5, so it only emulates float point math. Raspian is Debian recompiled to ARM6 so it has hardware float point math support. As a result it can have some significant performance improvements on some software (if it does a lot of FP math)
[3:20] <craig1> like the Debian Nginx package is filled with all kinds of Perl bloat
[3:21] <GabrialDestruir> Ah
[3:22] <mkopack> Hey, Hexxeh, since I have you here???
[3:22] <mkopack> Gonna PM you a question
[3:24] <plugwash> mkopack, hardware floating point is somewhat orthoganal to arm architecture version
[3:24] <plugwash> and btw debian armel is built for armv4t
[3:24] <GabrialDestruir> Is it just me.... or does anyone else think that during the first run/setup whatever, that it should automatically ask for all the stuff users have to reconfigure?
[3:24] <mkopack> plug: ok, so even WORSE
[3:24] <GabrialDestruir> Like keyboards/locales/time
[3:25] <mkopack> regardless the situation is emulated FP vs using the hardware FP support that's on the chip
[3:26] <craig1> GabrialDestruir: Arch does that
[3:27] <GabrialDestruir> Apparently not many people use rasbian's torrent? .-.
[3:27] <craig1> most distros typically use a GUI firstboot program
[3:28] <craig1> but not many of the Pi distros seem to have it
[3:28] <mkopack> most distress make you INSTALL them as well??? not just unpack an image
[3:28] <mkopack> distros'
[3:28] <GabrialDestruir> Clearly not any of the Pi ones I've been using xD
[3:28] <craig1> Arch uses an ncurses menu thing
[3:29] <GabrialDestruir> They all need to be setup more like raspbmc
[3:29] <GabrialDestruir> you download an installer image
[3:29] <GabrialDestruir> run the installer
[3:29] <GabrialDestruir> Then you can have to user go through with all the options they want (but raspbmc fails to do this)
[3:29] <craig1> but they can make a lot of asumptions about wat you're gonna do if you're loading a media centre distro
[3:29] <craig1> not so for a generic distro
[3:30] * R`` (~RHA@ip7.j-k.kund.riksnet.nu) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[3:30] <GabrialDestruir> Right. But an installer system would be good for all distros. They'd just have to vary with what they do depending on the distro.
[3:30] <GabrialDestruir> More options like a real installer could be possible though.
[3:31] <craig1> if you write it...I'm sure people would use it ;)
[3:31] <GabrialDestruir> Eh...
[3:31] <craig1> but they're mostly relying on existing software for everything
[3:31] <GabrialDestruir> sounds like a lot of work.
[3:31] <GabrialDestruir> xD
[3:32] <craig1> Fedora has a "firstboot" GUI program
[3:32] <craig1> not sure if it'll be on the RPi remix though
[3:32] <mkopack> Yeah, the Ubuntu on my Pandaboard makes you go through a full install on first boot up of a new image

[3:33] <GabrialDestruir> I suppose I could always pick around inside Raspbmc's installer, see if it's customizable.
[3:33] <craig1> normally the install goes from liveCD or liveUSB to hard drive
[3:34] <craig1> and the setup is part of that process
[3:34] <GabrialDestruir> Normally you can run a liveCD or liveUSB from a computer with no software installed already
[3:34] <craig1> yeah
[3:35] <GabrialDestruir> Though I suppose the proper term for what we need is "firmware"
[3:35] * hamitron (~hamitron@just.screw-the.eu) Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[3:36] <GabrialDestruir> We need a bootloader that just boots things like a regular computer.... then you could do the whole liveUSB or liveCD type thing.
[3:36] <craig1> firmware is kind of a poorly defined thing though
[3:36] <sraue> GabrialDestruir, the raspbmc installer does nothing then: you must write a image to the sdcard, after the start it copys a system to the ram, writes a new filesystem, downloads a new OS and extract this to the filesystem and reboots... which is not needed if you write the right image as the first step... seems
[3:37] <GabrialDestruir> You really do have it against Raspbmc don't you? It's a first step.
[3:37] <GabrialDestruir> You expand the capabilities of said installer and you could make it install any distroy, with any options, etc.
[3:37] <GabrialDestruir> distro*
[3:38] <craig1> The person who has the itch normally has to scratch it
[3:38] <craig1> unless you pay someone

[3:43] <craig1> wtf
[3:43] <GabrialDestruir> That sucks.
[3:43] <GabrialDestruir> It's an awesome idea though.... I have to admit.
[3:44] <craig1> kind of strange to take $250,000 in "donations" for a for-profit project though
[3:44] <GabrialDestruir> That's kind of how kickstarter works
[3:45] <craig1> most of the software stuff I've seen is Open Source though
[3:45] <GabrialDestruir> Though usually when you donate you get stuff in return depending on how m uch you donated... at least from the kickstarters I've seen
[3:45] <craig1> I kind of thought that's why they need the cash

[3:48] <craig1> I meant...something people couldn't do without at least a living wage to eat and pay rent

[3:50] <craig1> I like the "people against capitalism" model better, haha
[3:50] <GabrialDestruir> Did they say that it was going to be non-profit or open source or anything?
[3:51] <craig1> no, they didn't promise anything like that

[3:53] <craig1> nid0: oh, really?
[3:53] <nid0> faq's 2 and 3
[3:53] <craig1> I just saw they were giving out "licenses"
[3:53] <craig1> and jumped to conclusions
[3:53] <nid0> Will it be open source?
[3:53] <nid0> I'm a firm believer in open source software and open source technologies. I can guarantee you that Light Table will be built on top of the technologies that are freely available to us today. As such, I believe it only fair that the core of Light Table be open sourced once it is launched.
[3:53] <nid0> What's a license then?
[3:53] <nid0> In order to download packaged distributions, you'll need a license.
[3:53] <craig1> oops, now I look stupid
[3:53] <craig1> happens a lot
[3:54] <GabrialDestruir> So basically if you don't want to bother to compile yourself, you pay?
[3:54] <craig1> I guess it's "support"
[3:54] <craig1> like Red Hat style
[3:54] <GabrialDestruir> Makes sense to me.

[5:30] <GabrialDestruir> cause it's been scrolling for a while now
[5:33] <ShiftPlusOne> GabrialDestruir, it's uploading. You'll need the latest kernel and firmware (chances are the distros don't have the necessary kernel update yet). Put the essentials into cmdline.txt (stuff that won't change from distro to distro). Put your kernels into the kernels folder and then edit Menu.sh (which should be self explanatory, but you only need to worry about the top part.

[7:24] <kwixson> So I don't see instructions on the wiki for recompiling the kernel on the RPi itself...least not with Debian squeeze
[7:25] <GabrialDestruir> Why does the process for the hwclock exist if it can't be accessed?
[7:25] <simonlc> my pi seems to be getting slower and sower
[7:25] <GabrialDestruir> Stop installing crap on it >.>
[7:26] <simonlc> installng? I'm making this thing slick as glass
[7:26] <gregj> not apparently
[7:26] <ShiftPlusOne> kwixson, if you read the wiki, you should be able to understand the proccess and take out the cross-compiler related stuff.
[7:26] <simonlc> I'm running urxvt in x, no wm
[7:26] <kwixson> ShiftPlusOne: I find your abundance of faith disturbing.
[7:26] <GabrialDestruir> More like slick as a 10 ton glass block.
[7:26] <GabrialDestruir> >.>
[7:26] <GabrialDestruir> xD
[7:27] <simonlc> scrolling is awefully slow in vim
[7:27] <ShiftPlusOne> kwixson, I am a complete idiot when it comes to this linux stuff and I figure it out, so I see no reason why you wouldn't.
[7:28] <kwixson> ShiftPlusOne: If you say so. I'll do my best.
[7:28] * gregj runs rpi-updater
[7:29] <ShiftPlusOne> kwixson, you seem like one of those people who gets thrown off by people using terms you're not familiar with and ends up thinking things are more difficult than they really are... like old people with technology. =P
[7:29] <GabrialDestruir> The Pi totally needs a reboot button
[7:29] <GabrialDestruir> lol
[7:29] <gregj> that's extra 10c
[7:29] <gregj> to the cost
[7:30] <gregj> just short your usb
[7:30] <gregj> ;]
[7:30] <ShiftPlusOne> 10c? you've been getting ripped off! =O
[7:30] <gregj> speaking of slowtasks, I'm in the process of getting postgresql installed on it
[7:30] <simonlc> needs power and reset button
[7:30] <GabrialDestruir> I was actually think I need something that sits between the Pi and the cord so I could easily power it up and down.
[7:30] <gregj> actually I'm compiing it on the device
[7:30] <GabrialDestruir> thinking*
[7:31] <gregj> (using clang, cos gcc is tooo sloooow)
[7:31] <ShiftPlusOne> Why not crosscompile? Why don't you people crosscompile!? >_<
[7:31] <kwixson> I find it's better to play down what I know in order to get people to explain things to me like I'm stupid. Better to get talked down to but get the info I need that the other way around.
[7:32] <ShiftPlusOne> kwixson, I'd think that's stupid if I didn't do it myself sometimes.
[7:32] <GabrialDestruir> Because compiling on the pi makes them feel like real tinkerer's
[7:32] <gregj> ShiftPlusOne: I would need a linux desktop first
[7:32] <GabrialDestruir> That's the only conclusion I came to.
[7:32] <gregj> ShiftPlusOne: probably could just install virtualbox vm on my mac
[7:32] <GabrialDestruir> No other excuse is viable.
[7:32] <gregj> ShiftPlusOne: but why ?
[7:32] <ShiftPlusOne> gregj, even running something in virtualbox or vmware would be much faster
[7:33] <ShiftPlusOne> well yeah, what you said
[7:34] <gregj> or no trust in cross compilers
[7:35] <gregj> actually speed wise, its not that bad. it only spends like 80% cpu time on 'wait'
[7:35] <gregj> ;>
[7:35] <GabrialDestruir> Okay.... backing up both my Images....
[7:35] <GabrialDestruir> and I'm going to try and smash them together into a dualboot.
[7:36] <ShiftPlusOne> good luck, let me know how it goes
[7:36] <GabrialDestruir> I wonder what issues would exist if I set /home as it's own partition and mounted both OS to the same version of home....
[7:36] <gregj> would rpi-update only install firmware, if its newer version then current one ?
[7:36] <GabrialDestruir> to save on space that is...
[7:37] <GabrialDestruir> Guess I'll find out later xD
[7:37] <GabrialDestruir> First things first cleaning up Heapheastus and adding more space to work in.
[7:38] <GabrialDestruir> Hepheastus*
[7:38] <GabrialDestruir> and I still butchered it... oh well.
[7:38] <GabrialDestruir> Hephaestus* there we go.
[7:39] <gregj> here's a silly perhaps question. If its broadcom's arm chip that PI is using, why there's samsung name on it ?
[7:39] <GabrialDestruir> That's the ram
[7:39] <ShiftPlusOne> gregj, yeah, the ram chip is stacked on top
[7:40] <gregj> oh
[7:40] <gregj> so that's the real pie then
[7:40] <gregj> what is that chip with smsc name on it then ? (closer to the usb socket)
[7:40] <ShiftPlusOne> usb/ethernet
[7:40] <gregj> that's the one that actually gets pretty hot
[7:41] <ShiftPlusOne> yup
[7:41] <gregj> ram/cpu is room temp
[7:41] <gregj> probably because its not really that fast, no reason to get hot ;]
[7:42] <gregj> but that's pretty neat. I had no idea you can stack BGA chips up like that
[7:42] <ShiftPlusOne> yeah actually it's too hot for me to keep my finger on it
[7:42] <gregj> same here
[7:42] <ShiftPlusOne> Yeah, that's called PoP http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Package_on_package
[7:42] <ShiftPlusOne> I didn't know about it before the pi either
[7:43] <gregj> well, I've been into electronics for long time (20+ years), and I work for company that designs hardware (as well as software). But I've never seen ti either
[7:43] <gregj> let me grab my iPad, I don't have mouse it the console, to copy and paste links in to ... links
[7:44] <GabrialDestruir> Oh wait... you said this needed the latest kernel on it?
[7:44] <ShiftPlusOne> GabrialDestruir, yeah... latest latest
[7:45] <GabrialDestruir> Oh... might not work with Raspbmc then.... lol
[7:45] <ShiftPlusOne> kexec support was only recently pushed into the main tree
[7:45] <ShiftPlusOne> you can always use the same kernel for multiple distros
[7:45] <kwixson> Which ssh client should I get for my iPad?
[7:45] <ShiftPlusOne> unless raspbmc has some initrd thing built in
[7:46] <GabrialDestruir> I'll give that a try if the existing one doesn't work..
[7:46] <gregj> ShiftPlusOne: nice, and description on wiki is good too
[7:46] <gregj> kwixson: I'm using ssh term pro
[7:47] <gregj> kwixson: it wasn't free, but is good
[7:47] <gregj> all the free ones I tried were crap
[7:47] <GabrialDestruir> You don't get an ssh client for your iPad... you take your iPad and you bash it repeatedly with a rock.
[7:47] <kwixson> gregj: Thanks!
[7:48] <kwixson> GabrialDestruir: You're not a happy person, are you?
[7:49] <ShiftPlusOne> lol
[7:49] <ShiftPlusOne> should've seen him on pi launch day when all the sites went down
[7:49] <gregj> :=]
[7:50] <gregj> so is the guy responsible for bodgy C code he showed one day on youtube (demonstrating gp io) actyually here ?
[7:50] <ShiftPlusOne> who?
[7:50] <gregj> afair the code went something like (in C): : system("echo '1' > /dev/foo/bar");
[7:50] <ShiftPlusOne> lol!
[7:50] <gregj> not joking, guy who writes C code for broadcom
[7:51] <gregj> and works on the PI
[7:51] <gregj> did that and showed it to the world.
[7:51] <ShiftPlusOne> might be a hardware guy, no need to be harsh
[7:51] <gregj> some peolpe bashed him, and I can't blame them
[7:51] <ShiftPlusOne> was it gert?
[7:51] <gregj> nope, he was the software guy actually !
[7:52] <gregj> we have to deal with broadcom at work, so I know some people working there, are hard to deal with (and only ever send us windows binaries, suckers)...
[7:53] <gregj> its sunday, and weather is pretty good here in the UK - so most of these guys are probably enjoying nice bbq weekend ;)
[7:53] <gregj> quite rare to have weather that good in the uk
[7:54] <ShiftPlusOne> yeah UK people seem to freak out when the sun comes out
[7:54] <GabrialDestruir> It's like my computer knew what I was trying to do....

[10:21] <piless> no you see, the foundation releases software that bricks your pi through an "unofficial" irc channel, then you're forced to give them more money for pies
[10:22] <GabrialDestruir_> It makes sense!
[10:22] <GabrialDestruir_> It's all a sham to increase sales!
[10:22] <piless> ShiftPlusOne is just a patsy

[10:24] <ShiftPlusOne> that's almost half of them if you round it wrong.
[10:24] <SStrife> heh
[10:25] <SStrife> the schematic doesnt even say where the status led is connected
[10:25] <Gadgetoid_Air> Ah, glad I have a big juicy back buffer to read up on :D it's like a soap
[10:25] <SStrife> it says STATUS_LED_N, but that's not labelled on any chip

[10:27] <ShiftPlusOne> I am having trouble getting OpenELEC to boot witht it
[10:27] <ShiftPlusOne> *with
[10:27] <SStrife> hm, a multiboot would be nice
[10:28] <piless> why would you want two debian based distros?
[10:28] <piless> multi-boot = switching out multiple sd cards.
[10:28] <GabrialDestruir_> Because Rasbian isn't a Media based Distro but Raspbmc is. Raspbmc and OpenELEC because I'm still trying to decided which of the two I want.
[10:29] <ShiftPlusOne> GabrialDestruir_, have you noticed you can just put some distros on USB and still use the loader?
[10:29] <SStrife> shit
[10:29] <GabrialDestruir_> Multiboot = One Card multiple distros.
[10:29] <SStrife> oops wrong channel!!
[10:29] <ShiftPlusOne> SStrife, pg13
[10:29] <GabrialDestruir_> idk yet.
[10:29] <piless> BAN HIM

[10:40] <ShiftPlusOne> when they update the rpi patches for openelec, they should include the kexec patch, so sooner or later the builds will be compatible

[10:56] <Gadgetoid_Air> fat is fittingly named for windows :D

[10:58] <SStrife> Finally, on 2006-01-10 the Patent Office ruled that features of Microsoft's implementation of the FAT system were "novel and non-obvious", reversing both earlier non-final decisions.
[10:58] <ShiftPlusOne> you'll need start.elf, loader.bin and bootcode.bin
[10:58] <Gadgetoid_Air> Looks like I'll be able to put my 250gb of juicy space to use with some dual boot

[10:59] <Gadgetoid_Air> Gonna have to tweak things to make dual booting headless, though
[10:59] <SStrife> FAT is simple though, non-MS implementations are likely to be clean-room reverse engineer efforts
[11:00] <SStrife> and raspi uses it because it's simple
[11:00] <dipstick> y u no use ext2 as boot!
[11:00] <SStrife> probably because ext2 libraries are quite large
[11:01] <dipstick> =/
[11:01] <GabrialDestruir_> That doesn't seem to have helped....
[11:01] <SStrife> you can read FAT with a few lines of code, really
[11:01] <ShiftPlusOne> Gadgetoid_Air, I've brought out the Menu.sh script onto /boot to make it easy to tweak, so you can put anything in there. I haven't enabled ethernet in the kernel though, so ssh isn't going to work yet if you need it. But that's an easy fix.
[11:01] <ShiftPlusOne> so yeah, making it headless isn't going to be an issue
[11:01] <ShiftPlusOne> you can even load the kernel from the network
[11:02] <GabrialDestruir_> didn't help cause I did it wrong... lmao -.-

[11:06] <ShiftPlusOne> GabrialDestruir_, have you tried a regular kernel first, just to make sure everything else is ok?
[11:06] <GabrialDestruir_> I rather stupidly tried to use the source thinking it was a proper download? So now I'm gitting the source
[11:07] <gregj> PI still crashes with some keyboards, regardless of the power source. That crashes the 'not enough power' myth

[11:08] <ShiftPlusOne> gregj, does it? 'cause the power source doesn't go straight to USB, the usb power is capped at something like 100mA, so you really need a decent powered hub.
[11:08] * Charlie (~quassel@ has joined #raspberrypi
[11:08] * PiBot sets mode +v Charlie
[11:08] <Gadgetoid_Air> I notice that by default it just starts the first one in the list, so I could probably replace the hard-coded 0 with my "choice" var, or even lazier $( cat /mnt/default.txt )
[11:08] <gregj> I'm plugging keyboard directly to the device
[11:08] <ShiftPlusOne> though it shouldn't crash... you should just be getting sticky keys
[11:08] <GabrialDestruir_> Yea
[11:09] * Charlie is now known as Guest19145
[11:09] <gregj> so kernel is panicing
[11:09] <GabrialDestruir_> with another kernel it boots well
[11:09] <SStrife> i get that problem with any keyboard containing a hub
[11:09] <GabrialDestruir_> crashes
[11:09] <ShiftPlusOne> Gadgetoid_Air, yup
[11:09] <GabrialDestruir_> but the kernel boots
[11:09] <gregj> my keyboard doesn't have a hub
[11:09] <SStrife> not enough power getting thru the device
[11:09] <Gadgetoid_Air> ShiftPlusOne: obligatory question; will it boot from USB?
[11:09] <GabrialDestruir_> I went with USB wireless for mine xD
[11:09] <ShiftPlusOne> GabrialDestruir_, and you're 100% sure you've got the latest firmware?
[11:09] <SStrife> powered hub downstream of Pi fixes the issue
[11:09] <ShiftPlusOne> Gadgetoid_Air, it should already, but I haven't tried.
[11:10] <GabrialDestruir_> I'm 100% sure I don't
[11:10] <gregj> I don't think the crash is due to power like I said
[11:10] <GabrialDestruir_> which is why I'm about to build it now
[11:10] <Gadgetoid_Air> ShiftPlusOne: I'll let you know :)
[11:10] <raynerd> OK, well I installed the desktop environment from tasksel and I`ve now booted and startx and I`ve got a background!! BUT, I can`t see anything else different at all!! Any thoughts?
[11:10] <gregj> even with powered hub - the kernel still crashes
[11:10] <ShiftPlusOne> GabrialDestruir_, build? there's no building, the firmware is provided and closed.
[11:10] <gregj> suggests to me that the kernel has a bug
[11:10] <GabrialDestruir_> then idk what I'm grabbing -.-
[11:10] <GabrialDestruir_> bah
[11:10] <ShiftPlusOne> I sent you the link
[11:10] <ShiftPlusOne> https://github.com/raspberrypi/firmware/tree/master/boot
[11:11] <gregj> question is, how do I grab that backtrace in some usable form
[11:11] <GabrialDestruir_> yea
[11:11] <GabrialDestruir_> okay
[11:11] <ShiftPlusOne> gregj, you'll need to compare to System.map
[11:11] <GabrialDestruir_> give me a second here.
[11:11] <gregj> ShiftPlusOne: yeah, but how do I grab it in the first place
[11:11] <gregj> ShiftPlusOne: I don't fancy rewriting it from a screen shot
[11:11] <ShiftPlusOne> gregj, depends on who you got the kernel from.
[11:12] <gregj> its the debian image
[11:12] <GabrialDestruir_> Okay yea I gitted that and got the firmware .-. xD
[11:12] <ShiftPlusOne> gregj, no idea, but it should be out there somewhere. Also, you might want to get serial working so you can copy/paste that sort of stuff

[11:13] <ShiftPlusOne> might not match your kernel though, I don't know what's in debian.
[11:13] <gregj> otherwise no idea how to connect PI to my mac via serial
[11:13] <ShiftPlusOne> gregj, yes, with the ftdi usb-uart adapter

[11:15] <ShiftPlusOne> Gadgetoid_Air, oh no...=(... then I'd have to test the USB thing myself =O
[11:17] <GabrialDestruir_> Was right aboust Raspbmc, doesn't look like it'll start. Unless it's suppose to take a long time at "Starting new kernel"
[11:18] <ShiftPlusOne> GabrialDestruir_, that's a sign of an old kernel
[11:18] <ShiftPlusOne> I said i'd compile one for you, but as it turns out I can't be bothered right now =(

[11:34] <Gadgetoid_Air> GabrialDestruir_: so I can specify the default kernel by doing "echo "1" > /mnt/default.txt"
[11:34] <plugwash> i'm not sure there is any good soloution for youtube right now, some browsers may support html5 video but I doubt they support the videocore acceleration (AIUI the acceleration doesn't work with X atm, correct me if i'm wrong) and without acceleration the video will be a slideshow
[11:34] <Gadgetoid_Air> Or default boot, even, as I'm dual booting between SD card and external
[11:34] <GabrialDestruir_> Okay
[11:35] <Gadgetoid_Air> Handy cos if I take my Pi on the go, I don't have my hard drive with me
[11:35] <gregj> raynerd: youtube.com/html5
[11:35] <chancellorsmith> simple software to play audio on Arch.. pacman -S what?
[11:35] <gregj> raynerd: if you're a noob, why do you use pi ?
[11:35] <GabrialDestruir_> I have no clue anymore, I've tried downloading from the website I've tried gitting
[11:35] <chancellorsmith> just want to hear my Pi speak for the 1st time !
[11:35] <Gadgetoid_Air> right, fingers crossed??? going for a headless reboot now

[11:35] <raynerd> why, as a noob am I not allowed?
[11:35] <chancellorsmith> pulse audio failed to install
[11:35] <plugwash> I think some of the Pi builds of xbmc may be able to play youtube videos but it seems to me like a pretty painful soloution
[11:35] <gregj> raynerd: nope, you need to return it immiedately
[11:35] <gregj> ;>
[11:36] <gregj> raynerd: but in all seriousness, the first batch was meant to be for development purposes, etc

[11:36] <raynerd> gregj - was just going to say, can`t remember seeing a test for noobiness before I purchased it!
[11:36] <gregj> ;]
[11:36] <raynerd> gregj - I`m not in the first batch. I got mine yesterday which was apparently the second batch

[11:36] * PiBot sets mode +v Charlie
[11:36] <gregj> I'm guessing you are stuck in the android world, and you dno't know what html5 is, or how bad flash is in general
[11:37] <Gadgetoid_Air> Well, my external HDD light is flashing, so it's either booting or doing an rm -rf / :D
[11:37] <gregj> that's the first batch
[11:37] * Charlie is now known as Guest32603
[11:37] <raynerd> really, cool.
[11:37] <gregj> well, initial batch - should I say

[11:37] * PiBot sets mode +v kvarley
[11:37] <raynerd> gregj - so what were the ones sent out over a month ago?
[11:37] <Gadgetoid_Air> ShiftPlusOne: successful boot from HDD is successful
[11:37] <raynerd> teh pre-first batch ?
[11:37] <gregj> html5 spec defines <video> tag
[11:37] <Gadgetoid_Air> Now to echo "1" > /boot/default.txt and try SD
[11:37] <gregj> that allows browsers to open video streams natively
[11:38] <raynerd> ok
[11:38] <gregj> hence - no need for flash anymore
[11:38] <ShiftPlusOne> Gadgetoid_Air, awesome, thanks for testing =D
[11:38] * Da|Mummy (~Veki@cpe-76-190-200-98.neo.res.rr.com) Quit (Quit: Happy Now?)
[11:38] <gregj> flash is slow, cumbersome, and uses a lot of power to deliver something that most OSes can do natively
[11:38] <gregj> flash must die
[11:38] <GabrialDestruir_> If this doesn't work then I'm quitting .-.
[11:39] <gregj> cu
[11:39] <ShiftPlusOne> GabrialDestruir_, where did you get the kernel you're using?
[11:39] <gregj> :P
[11:39] <Gadgetoid_Air> ShiftPlusOne: so the initial boot image is baked in with the kernel? getting SSH in that could actually be useful for emergency headless recovery
[11:39] <GabrialDestruir_> https://github.com/raspberrypi/firmware/boot
[11:39] <GabrialDestruir_> was one
[11:39] <GabrialDestruir_> I tried right clicking save as from the original link
[11:39] <GabrialDestruir_> as another
[11:39] <raynerd> gregj - thanks for the info. but the browser must support html5 right?
[11:39] * gregj got himself usb hub for ??1
[11:39] <gregj> raynerd: safari, chrome, firefox do
[11:40] <raynerd> gregj - where from?
[11:40] <gregj> raynerd: dunno about others
[11:40] <gregj> poundworld of course
[11:40] <ShiftPlusOne> GabrialDestruir_, that kernel probably hasn't been updated, check when it was last changed
[11:40] <raynerd> ok, I`m using midori
[11:40] <GabrialDestruir_> 4 days?
[11:40] <gregj> that's the default with pi
[11:40] <gregj> I haven't tried firefox or others yet

[11:41] * Guest32603 (~quassel@ Quit (Ping timeout: 245 seconds)
[11:41] <GabrialDestruir_> Actually from the looks of it, nothing in this repo is younger than 4 days....
[11:41] <ShiftPlusOne> Gadgetoid_Air, yeah, it's baked in. I'll get network support working next.
[11:41] <chancellorsmith> ooops - aplay: device_list:252: no soundcards found...
[11:41] <chancellorsmith> Any tips ?
[11:41] <raynerd> gregj - is there a browser that is a simple download that will support html5 for the pi?
[11:41] <Gadgetoid_Air> Ee, I actually have to do "sudo echo "1" | sudo tee /boot/default.txt" but that's easy to bake into a script
[11:41] <GabrialDestruir_> So can you up a kernel that does work so I can work with it?
[11:41] <GabrialDestruir_> .-.
[11:42] <gregj> raynerd: no idea
[11:42] <gregj> raynerd: try iceweasel
[11:42] <gregj> raynerd: but I'm not sure it will work
[11:42] <ShiftPlusOne> GabrialDestruir_, yeah, but using a kernel without the modules compiled at the same time as the kernel isn't always the best idea... should work though, so hang on
[11:43] <gregj> raynerd: you need to remember that pi is not meant to be relpacement for a desktop
[11:43] <gregj> raynerd: its more of a embedded/tinker device
[11:43] <gregj> happens to be powerful enough to run linux
[11:43] <raynerd> gregj - tinker device?
[11:43] <gregj> which is great
[11:43] <gregj> tinker -> someone who likes to tinker with stuff
[11:43] <GabrialDestruir_> I just want to see it work, tomorrow I'll figure out how to get whatever source I need and play with my own kernel I suppose.
[11:44] <gregj> raynerd: hack/play/mess about
[11:44] <raynerd> gregj - Arduino ?
[11:44] <ShiftPlusOne> GabrialDestruir_, uploading now
[11:44] <GabrialDestruir_> Apparently...
[11:44] <gregj> raynerd: more opwerful arduino
[11:44] <GabrialDestruir_> Someone is already tired of the Raspberry Pi
[11:44] <gregj> raynerd: but allows uses like arduino

[11:45] <Gadgetoid_Air> Ahhh crap, I just realised that booting from my SD card with a kernel that doesn't have its corresponding modules installed is a bad, bad idea

[11:46] <ShiftPlusOne> Gadgetoid_Air, it's not THAT bad, since it's the same kernel version and that normally works fine.
[11:46] <raynerd> gregj - just a quick last one, then I`m off out, if the RaspPi isn`t for noobs, why is the target audience considered to be kids?
[11:46] <Gadgetoid_Air> I'm not convinced it'll get far
[11:46] <GabrialDestruir_> Eh I'm all good on that front... I have all my images for the dualboot saved and nicely tucked away.
[11:46] <ShiftPlusOne> GabrialDestruir_, http://dl.dropbox.com/u/175702/ArchLinux.image
[11:47] <Gadgetoid_Air> Fortunately my Pi is actually only inches away, so recover I can
[11:47] <GabrialDestruir_> Do you also have off/onhand somewhere I can get kernel sourcey goodness to git and shit

[11:49] <nanomad> ShiftPlusOne: got any tutorials? or directions at least?
[11:49] <ShiftPlusOne> nanomad, yup, hang on.
[11:49] <ShiftPlusOne> nanomad, http://pastebin.com/4Jp1WPTb
[11:49] <nanomad> thanks ShiftPlusOne
[11:50] <ShiftPlusOne> it hasn't been updated in a while, but should still be good
[11:50] <nanomad> awesome
[11:50] <nanomad> (I'm using raspbian but I can probably make it work)
[11:50] <Gadgetoid_Air> Wow, disturbing??? my USB hub provides enough backwash of power to light the LEDs connected to my GPIO pins
[11:50] <raynerd> gregj - hum
[11:50] <ShiftPlusOne> nanomad, or you can also download the 'dev vm' which is a virtualbox vm with all of that already set up
[11:51] <ShiftPlusOne> Gadgetoid_Air, one of my hubs actually boots the pi up
[11:51] <chancellorsmith> hmmm - audio raspberry pi command line <--- googling that doesn't give me much joy
[11:51] <GabrialDestruir_> Oh
[11:51] <chancellorsmith> did someone say that audio on Arch works out of the box ?
[11:51] <ShiftPlusOne> I said it worked for me
[11:51] <chancellorsmith> ok - how did you do it ?
[11:52] <Gadgetoid_Air> @ShiftPlusOne sheesh!
[11:52] <chancellorsmith> on the command line ?
[11:52] <ShiftPlusOne> chancellorsmith, try with moc (pacman -S moc)

[11:59] <ShiftPlusOne> I believe it does, but not by default.. I am not sure to be honest.
[11:59] <ShiftPlusOne> I am new to this whole hardfloat/softfloat thing.
[11:59] <nanomad> ShiftPlusOne: how about the github one? If you know that is
[11:59] <ShiftPlusOne> yeah, that one is hardfp
[11:59] <nanomad> ShiftPlusOne: link? (sorry to bother you)

[12:01] <Gadgetoid_Air> I'll have to look into partitioning my drive and adding raspbian
[12:02] <GabrialDestruir> I'm going to bed, tomorrow I'll work on getting Raspmc and OpenELEC both working.
[12:03] <GabrialDestruir> Actually that's a lie... I'm going to read, in bed, the rest is true.
[12:03] <GabrialDestruir> Night all.
[12:03] <ShiftPlusOne> 'night, thanks for the help
[12:03] <GabrialDestruir> Np
[12:03] <ShiftPlusOne> If you need to customize it more, I used buildroot and added an rc script to mount the partition and run Menu.sh. Buildroot is really touchy, so you'll want to stick to defaults wherever possible.

[12:41] <gordonDrogon> Hm. not finding vi too bad on the console - it's hardly slower than on my desktop here.
[12:41] <simonlc> seems to be maxing out the cpu actually gordonDrogon
[12:41] <chaoshax> What's the highest a pi has been?
[12:41] <gordonDrogon> Wonder if there's something else going on...
[12:41] <gordonDrogon> vi does occasionally seem to do an fsync on the backup file which casues a brief blip - noticable if auto-repeating an arrow key up/down.
[12:42] <simonlc> and it's X using up the cpu
[12:42] <gordonDrogon> or are you running a huge set of macros for syntax highlighting, etc. ? (I have all that nonsense turned off)
[12:42] <simonlc> so I guess it is the unaccelerated stuff?
[12:42] <Gadgetoid_Air> I had trouble with VIM due to a custom config that scanned the filesystem for git status every time you moved the cursor
[12:42] <gordonDrogon> yes, x.
[12:42] <simonlc> no, it's just as slow with default settings
[12:42] <chaoshax> nano is the bees knees.
[12:42] <gordonDrogon> try a different terminal - I use bog-standard xterms ...

[12:43] <simonlc> this was urxvt with just colors and terminus
[12:44] <gordonDrogon> I use nano for quick fixes when I don't have vim though, but that's quite rare - except in email when I still use (al)pine which has it's pico editor (which nano is a clone of)
[12:44] <simonlc> I'll try xterm and st
[12:44] <Gadgetoid_Air> nano is great for people with ten fingers on each hand :D
[12:44] <gordonDrogon> I never have colours enabled, but I doubt that would slow things down.

[12:45] <chaoshax> Umm, do you think the pi could cope with easycap?
[12:46] <Gadgetoid_Air> If a yum update on the Pi fetches a new kernel, and there's nobody to hear it, does it make a sound?
[12:47] <ShiftPlusOne> I know arch updates the kernel without much of a sound, so I have kernel.img backed up as xecloader.img so that I can put it back if things go wrong
[12:48] <Gadgetoid_Air> ShiftPlusOne: I'd feared as much
[12:48] <ShiftPlusOne> is there a way to make it read only?
[12:48] <Gadgetoid_Air> Yeah, don't mount /boot
[12:48] <Gadgetoid_Air> It's got nothing of any consequence to a running system on it, has it?
[12:49] <Gadgetoid_Air> Or mount a fake /boot for kernel updates to drop into, and copy them manually into your real boot/kernels?
[12:49] <ShiftPlusOne> perhaps
[12:49] <chaoshax> Anyone tried using video capture devices?
[12:49] <chaoshax> Do you think it would struggle?
[12:50] <Gadgetoid_Air> I doubt the system cares about the particulars of /boot, just that it exists, so I'd add a script that unmounts it at startup, remounts to /mnt/boot and mount /mnt/boot/kernels/fedora to /boot
[12:50] <Gadgetoid_Air> Then adjust the startup script accordingyl
[12:51] <shirro> how common is it to have lost usb packets - missing keystrokes/key repeat? I get it come and go with different keyboards, different power supplies, hub or direct. I don't see a huge number of complaints so I am wondering if perhaps my hardware has an issue.
[12:52] <Gadgetoid_Air> Unless you can symlink from /mnt/boot to new fakeboot
[12:53] <ShiftPlusOne> shirro, same issues here. however using a different hub helps. do you have a proper hub or a no-name?
[12:54] <Gadgetoid_Air> I feel sorry for my Pi, resize2fs is absolutely thrashing it, with gparted, x11vnc and xvfb all having a whale of a time, too
[12:55] <shirro> ShiftPlusOne: The only powered hub I have tried is a DSE one. But it happens with 3 different keyboards with and without the hub. And it comes and goes so I can't work out what is happening. I wi'l change something and think I have fixed it and then it comes back. If everyone was getting it I would have thought there would be a lot more complaints on the forum
[12:56] <ShiftPlusOne> shirro, yeah. Are you running the latest firmware and kernel?
[12:56] <shirro> Yes. Happens with latest pre-compiled kernels and ones I compile myself.
[12:56] <SStrife> argh, my cat is so stupid, she has food, but comes and complains as if there were none, so you go to her bowl, do nothing, and she continues eating

[12:56] <ShiftPlusOne> I still think it's a bad hub
[12:57] <FrankBuss> shirro: I have this problem with my keyboard, too (no hub). I guess it is not a power supply problem (1.2 A) and the keyboard works without problems on my PC. the problem exist with the original Debian image, as well as with the latest kernel from bootc
[12:57] <shirro> I wonder if it will happen with my second pi when it arrives.
[12:57] * Meatballs|Away is now known as Meatballs
[12:57] <ShiftPlusOne> FrankBuss, the power supply doesn't matter, but it can still be a power problem. As I've said earlier, pi caps the current available to USB
[12:58] <shirro> I have to turn key repeat off in X or work via ssh when it gets bad
[12:58] <FrankBuss> to what level? I don't expect my keyboard to draw many amps :-)
[12:59] <ShiftPlusOne> around 100mA, many 120ish, I don't remember

[13:00] <chaoshax> gordonDrogon, Maybe but I have no cash, I need money for a project!
[13:00] <gordonDrogon> chaoshax, someone had a Buy in now for ?30...
[13:00] <chaoshax> Bleh.
[13:01] <chaoshax> Might be tempting.
[13:01] <chaoshax> Then I will get destroyed on seller fees
[13:02] <gordonDrogon> you'd be better off buying the pi, then selling that, but I suspect in the 3 weeks time it'll take for it to come the going rate will be about ?50...
[13:02] <simonlc> well xterm is definitely faster, but fullscreen it's still very slow gordonDrogon
[13:02] <gordonDrogon> or if your that desperate for cash, go stack shelves at tescos..
[13:02] <Gadgetoid_Air> chaoshax: makes more sense to buy the Pi and sell it, isn't the key tied to your email address?
[13:02] <gordonDrogon> simonlc, lets hope the X folks can get the 2D stuff going then...

[13:03] <simonlc> yea, all the load is going on the cpu, jumps to 80-100% when I scroll

[13:04] <Gadgetoid_Air> If you've got something to promote, go for it!
[13:04] <SStrife> but it turned out something was just resting on the keyboard :-/
[13:04] <Gadgetoid_Air> Chance of Pi draw many nerds
[13:04] <gordonDrogon> I wonder what I've forgotten to put in my kernel config to make keyboard & mouse work under X )-:
[13:05] <SStrife> they keyboard i'm using has a really short travel
[13:05] <SStrife> so it didn't occur to me what was going on, at first
[13:05] <gordonDrogon> keyboard works fin in console, but when I start X, no keyboard or mouse )-:
[13:05] <shirro> gordonDrogon: depmod -a and reboot
[13:05] <chaoshax> It's a nerd gathering anyway.
[13:05] <gordonDrogon> shirro, no modules.

[13:12] <shirro> Arey you using Terminal or iTerm?
[13:12] <gordonDrogon> sounds like it's in line mode rather than character mode, but I thought ssh sorted all that nonsense...
[13:12] <chancellorsmith> Gadgetoid_Air: on mac or on pi ?
[13:12] <ShiftPlusOne> you have to ask!? O_O

[13:12] <chancellorsmith> arfonzo: thanks - gone for debian for a bit

[13:13] <Gadgetoid_Air> Peculiar, I've been SSHing into my Pi running Debian from 10.7 for days and have only seen those characters during my weird vim escapades
[13:14] <Gadgetoid_Air> Tried iTerm2, chancellorsmith?
[13:14] <shirro> chancellorsmith: and Apple Terminal or iTerm?

[13:27] <shirro> zsh is also really nice. one which has potential for the education market might be fish - it does some nice completion out of the box but is probably too weird for bash/zsh users
[13:28] <ironzorg> your irssi theme is terrible
[13:28] <Gadgetoid_Air> zsh needs some amount of configuration, a "sane zsh defaults for Pi" file would be nice :D

[13:29] <simonlc> when scrolling the page
[13:29] <shirro> git status in your zsh prompt on a sluggish arm with sd is not a good idea
[13:29] <gordonDrogon> actually very responsive - I've just done a cat of all my *.h *.c files in RTB to get a file of about 23K lines and it's quite snappy.

[13:30] <simonlc> oh
[13:31] <gordonDrogon> running under xfce4 too.
[13:31] <simonlc> well xterm worked really well at a small size, but urxvt was just as slow as fullscreen
[13:31] <gordonDrogon> under raspbian.
[13:32] <simonlc> fullscreen xterm is faster, but still it feels too sluggish
[13:32] <simonlc> yeah raspbian probably helps a lot
[13:32] <gordonDrogon> I'm installing rxvt to see...
[13:33] <chaoshax> Jesus someone down my street has a 20 ft flag pole.
[13:33] <chaoshax> It's huge
[13:33] <gordonDrogon> not sure raspbian will make a difference here - I can't imagine there's much floating pint...
[13:33] <shirro> things that help: raspbian, overclock, PREEMPT, CONFIG_SCHED_AUTOGROUP, a light window manager like jwm. Yet to find a terminal I really like. Open to suggestions. Not rxvt
[13:34] <shirro> raspbian may make some things slower
[13:34] <simonlc> you don't think raspbian runs x faster?
[13:34] <plugwash> hmm, is that just because it's newer versions of software or do you have another reason for thinking that?
[13:34] <shirro> wheezy has more security options compiled into libc I think. Some might make things a little slower.
[13:35] <shirro> I am just saying without careful benchmarking it isn't totally clear raspbian is faster on everything (outside of FP heavy stuff which is a given)
[13:36] <gordonDrogon> rxvt is marginall slower, but if can keep up with auto-repeat on (e.g. Ctrl-F)
[13:36] <gordonDrogon> shirro, and I've just had an annoying auto-repeat issue!
[13:37] <shirro> xset -r :-(
[13:37] <mjr> I'd be surprised if raspbian was faster on "everything", though it's a bit surprising if it's actually slower on something
[13:37] <gordonDrogon> shirro, and the 'r' key on my keyboard seemed 'sticky' however I'm, not sure if it's not because it's a very (very!) cheap keyboard - ?4.95 jobbie from tescos...

[13:38] <gordonDrogon> however that's a mandelbrot written in basic, so there's a lot of non-FP stuff going on between each "proper" FP operation.
[13:38] <shirro> The thing with ssl is you want it to be correct and secure first and fast second. So if it is slower on a leter version of openssl I am not going to panic

[13:39] <shirro> mjr: yes, so you can't directly compare
[13:40] <gordonDrogon> Holden, that's not surprising.
[13:40] <Holden> (using raspbian)
[13:40] <mjr> it might be that later openssl versions have fixed some timing attack that makes it slower
[13:40] <mjr> (that's a real thing)
[13:40] <gordonDrogon> Holden, my basic interpreter does more non-FP stuff thant FP stuff...
[13:41] <Holden> gordonDrogon, that's why then
[13:41] <gordonDrogon> and it's not a particularly clever mandelbrot either.

[13:41] <mjr> There have been instances where you could attack an ssl implementation based on how much time it takes to do the calculations. So the implementations must take care to be equally slow for any key material.
[13:41] <gordonDrogon> curiously some things don't seem that much faster - e.g. an ackermann test - only speeds up by 1 second from 7 seconds to 6 ish...
[13:41] <shirro> gordonDrogon: are you running PREEMPT and/or CONFIG_SCHED_AUTOGROUP. Is anyone and how do they feel about them. I am pretty happy and not sure if it is some placebo thing
[13:42] <gordonDrogon> however no actual calculations there other than a subtract..
[13:42] <gordonDrogon> shirro, yes, PREEMP and AUTOGROUP, and low-latency desktop.
[13:42] <shirro> Is it just me. Or is it SO much better?
[13:42] <gordonDrogon> shirro, it's opetions i've always set on my desktops.
[13:43] <gordonDrogon> shirro, Not had much X time on it yet (ie. only the past half hour), but xfce4 does seems a little snappier...
[13:43] <shirro> Me too. But the Pi was noticeably non-responsive with the stock kernel and when I recompiled it it felt a lot better
[13:43] <gordonDrogon> shirro, I have a 2nd Pi on std. debian next to it, so I might give some side by side tests later.
[13:43] <shirro> I need two side by side
[13:44] <shirro> it is the only way to test it properly

[13:44] <gordonDrogon> shirro, Cornwall is 30 minutes away, but we're going to the Eden Project - about an hour.
[13:45] <gordonDrogon> shirro, yes, Cornwall at the end of Engurland, Devon next, then Somerset, Dorset ... etc.
[13:45] <gordonDrogon> although the Cornish often think of themseles as a separate country ...
[13:46] <shirro> the cornish played a significant role in the early days of my state as miners. We love our cornish pasties
[13:46] <gordonDrogon> yea, invented in Devon though :)
[13:46] <Holden> btw, has anyone tried to use a MAX232 to convert 3.3v uart to rs232? Datasheet says that Vilmax=0.8V and Vihmin=2.0V, so I think it should work... I don't have a max3232 at the moment
[13:46] <gordonDrogon> just like cream teas - also invented in Devon :)
[13:47] <gordonDrogon> Holden, I think I used one about 10 years ago on a project I did then on a PIC, but I don't have any notes on it.

[13:49] <gordonDrogon> right. I need to go ... laters!
[13:50] <ShiftPlusOne> Holden, why not just use a ready ftdi 3.3v uart-usb cable?
[13:51] <shirro> A few people (Hexxeh, teh_orph?) use these http://www.amazon.co.uk/TRIXES-USB-Serial-Converter-CP2102/dp/B004ROOPK6
[13:51] <Holden> ShiftPlusOne, it's sunday, I think they cost about $20 and plus I'm sure I can hack something together just for a one-time test
[13:51] <ShiftPlusOne> shirro, yeah, that's essentially the same sort of thing I was talking about. Works just fine.
[13:52] <Holden> shirro, oh but they are usb... I need standard rs232

[14:24] <Gadgetoid_Air> Order all the Pi!

[14:25] <ReggieUK> how much PhonRaspPi?
[14:26] <Gadgetoid_Air> PhonRaspPi: ooouuch, from the high-street?
[14:26] <PhonRaspPi> ?10 per pack of two
[14:26] <Tachyon`> 8s are dead cheap now
[14:26] <chaoshax> Might take it to college but the IT guys will have a fit if I connect it to the lan
[14:26] <Gadgetoid_Air> Oh, that's not too bad
[14:26] <PhonRaspPi> so i bought 2 packs
[14:26] <Tachyon`> so don't tell them
[14:26] <ReggieUK> that's not bad at all
[14:26] <Gadgetoid_Air> I paid ??10 a piece, more or less, for my 16GBs

[14:27] <PhonRaspPi> these are PNY cards that i bought
[14:27] <Tachyon`> aye, I have a spare 16 somewhere, does the pi support write protect?
[14:27] <PhonRaspPi> and i have a 16GB Integral thats fine
[14:27] <Pi_iglet> no support wor write-protect
[14:27] <Pi_iglet> for*

[14:27] <Tachyon`> lost the tab on that card

[14:27] <ReggieUK> :/ even
[14:27] <Tachyon`> kingston cards, usual problem
[14:27] <Tachyon`> namely the casing starts coming apart
[14:27] <Pi_iglet> Think so - can't see anything on the mechanism for it
[14:28] <Tachyon`> I've had 3 of their 16s and the same has happened on every one
[14:28] <Tachyon`> after a few dozen insert/remove cycles they just crack up and sepearte
[14:28] <Pi_iglet> However turning it over now to check might lose me power and drop me from IRC!

[15:02] <nid0> pretty much anything gets better io than to an sd in the pi
[15:03] <popey> hmm, need a powered USB HDD caddy
[15:03] <nid0> i've got a volume mounted on a big-ass slow disk in my nas via iscsi over wifi, and that has better io performance from the pi than its sd card
[15:03] <popey> all mine are powered from USB, and I guess there's not enough current delivered by the pi USB ports?
[15:04] <hughJorgan1986_> "10" grade SD card: 11.35 MB/sec
[15:04] <popey> thats write speed isnt it?
[15:04] <hughJorgan1986_> nope
[15:04] <hughJorgan1986_> read
[15:04] <hughJorgan1986_> Timing cached reads: 2972 MB in 2.00 seconds = 1487.20 MB/sec Timing buffered disk reads: 36 MB in 3.17 seconds = 11.35 MB/sec
[15:05] * onefreeman thinks he should cancel his SD card order...
[15:05] <hughJorgan1986_> haha
[15:05] <onefreeman> or at least shell out for a C10 card
[15:05] <nid0> a lot of class10's wont work properly in the pi
[15:06] <IT_Sean> ^ wot 'e said.
[15:06] <onefreeman> derp
[15:06] <chnopsx> I'm wondering btw
[15:07] <chnopsx> I have a class.. 4 I think, 4GB microSD card, and it seems to work fine
[15:07] * Tachyon is now known as Tachyon`
[15:07] <kvarley> I have Transcend Class 6' and they're fine
[15:07] <chnopsx> except I wanted to create an extra ext4 partition in the empty space on it, and it keeps erroring out badly
[15:07] <chnopsx> like tons of error on dmesg when I try to run mkfs.ext4
[15:07] <hughJorgan1986_> http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=4076
[15:08] <Tachyon`> what sort of errors
[15:08] <Tachyon`> that shouldn't happen
[15:08] * piless (piless@ Quit (Ping timeout: 256 seconds)
[15:08] <chnopsx> IO errors, though I don't know which ones specifically, let me hook up my pi real quick
[15:09] <onefreeman> strange... http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sandisk-Ultra-30MB-SDHC-Card/dp/B000QUUFRM shows C10 on the main image but C6 on the others
[15:09] <Tachyon`> they do reuse images often
[15:09] <Tachyon`> sometimes the size doesn't match either
[15:09] <onefreeman> and, in fact, C4 on a customer photo
[15:09] <nid0> the image in the product description actually shows class4
[15:09] <onefreeman> nice and confusing then
[15:09] <nid0> so its either 4, 6, or 10
[15:09] <Tachyon`> lol
[15:10] <Likes_Nutella> hughJorgan1986_: I get ~25MB/s with a 5200rpm PATA drive but the Pi crashes if I try to actually write anything to it. I think it probably doesnt have enough power. I expect a decent 7200rpm SATA drive would get some nice speeds
[15:10] <onefreeman> technical details say class 6
[15:10] <nid0> technical detail also says 30MB/s
[15:10] <nid0> which would normally warrant a class10
[15:10] <hughJorgan1986_> did you try a different filesystem?
[15:10] <nid0> which the main picture also agrees with
[15:10] <hughJorgan1986_> ntfs is not the best choice

[15:10] <Tachyon`> note that review
[15:10] <onefreeman> so in conclusion, it's nonsense?
[15:10] <Tachyon`> someone has already tried it in a Pi and it didn't work apparently
[15:11] <onefreeman> well, that's an easy solution
[15:11] <Likes_Nutella> hughJorgan1986_: I'm using ext
[15:11] <nid0> odd that he says it doesnt work though
[15:11] <hughJorgan1986_> oh that's too bad then
[15:11] <nid0> the card in my pi right now's an 8GB sandisk ultra class 6
[15:11] <nid0> and works perfectly
[15:11] <Tachyon`> oh
[15:11] <Tachyon`> someone else says it did work in the pi
[15:11] <Tachyon`> well that's clear as mud
[15:12] <onefreeman> I have http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sandisk-8GB-Secure-Digital-Card/dp/B000VUVA62 on order but after coming in to this discussion I'm thinking of a quick cancellation and shelling out a few quic more for faster speeds

[15:14] <Tachyon`> no, the trouble with sd cards is the speed reading/writing small files I've found

[15:34] <zgreg> wow, that sucks
[15:35] <zgreg> I thought those developers got their pis a few weeks ago
[15:36] <zgreg> well, the idea certainly was to give developers a head-start, and it has failed horribly
[15:36] <nid0> I had heard that nokia got hundreds of pis for that
[15:36] <zgreg> yes and no... apparently nokia has a contract or something with the rpi foundation for 400 boards
[15:36] <zgreg> they should have gotten those boards from the first batch
[15:36] * Tuxuser is now known as XeCrypt
[15:37] <zgreg> and from what I've read, they already paid for those boards
[15:38] <Gadgetoid_Air> Nah, the only people who have Pi's at the moment are using them for XBMC
[15:39] <megaproxy> too much egg
[15:39] <Gadgetoid_Air> The Pi kicked off with too much publicity, which will give us a rocky start but may pay off in the long run
[15:39] <nid0> psh, im using mine to try to sort out thin-client booting from iscsi
[15:40] <chaoshax> It means they are gold dust.
[15:41] <chaoshax> Open hardware version would be cool, imagine starting computing class where you have to assemble the computer.

[15:41] <chaoshax> Where you learn what part does
[15:41] <PhonicUK> <3 my Pi
[15:42] <PhonicUK> i might make an RTC for mine sat on the GPIO with a battery backup
[15:43] <zgreg> err, assembling a raspi would not be very interesting
[15:43] <zgreg> "this is the SoC. it does everything."
[15:44] <zgreg> besides, you cannot solder the raspberry pi without special equipment
[15:44] <chaoshax> That's true :p
[15:44] <zgreg> and then there's the firmware blackbox you cannot easily explain or look into
[15:44] <zgreg> in other words: NOPE
[15:45] <chaoshax> Still would be fun, not enough soldering in classes anymore.
[15:45] <oldtopman> PhonicUK: Yeah, I'm tempted to make some here and mass-produce them for the rpi
[15:46] <chnopsx> what does an RTC do?
[15:46] <chnopsx> just keep time when the device is turned off?
[15:46] <zgreg> chnopsx: and when it is turned on, too
[15:46] <chnopsx> hm
[15:47] <chnopsx> isn't it already capable of doing that?
[15:47] <zgreg> at least that's often a good idea, because software clocks are often not very accurate
[15:47] <chnopsx> ah
[15:47] <chaoshax> a very cheap communications module would be cool.
[15:47] <PhonicUK> anyone know where the download for the raspbmc beta is?
[15:47] <PhonicUK> i cant find it
[15:47] <chaoshax> I can't either
[15:48] <nacimep> accurate time
[15:48] <PhonicUK> wooo cifs is working!
[15:48] <chnopsx> if I have an old PC motherboard with presumably some sort of RTC on it, would it be a potential hobby project to remove it from there make that work with an RPi?

[17:04] <oldtopman> Is the rpi Gigabit?

[17:04] <haltdef> still double that of 100mbps lan
[17:04] <oldtopman> Eh, not too bad.
[17:04] <PhonicUK> mmm true
[17:04] <piless> PhonicUK: Yeah but the usb bus is 4x faster than the ethernet right?
[17:05] <zgreg> some USB ethernet dongles support gbit ethernet, AFAIK
[17:05] <haltdef> I have one of them for my UMPC
[17:05] <mjr> there are those.
[17:06] <zgreg> but I can only assume that they perform rather poorly
[17:06] <piless> zgreg: how chunky are usb ethernet dongles?
[17:06] <haltdef> which has no kind of ethernet built in, why limit throughput to 100mbps when usb2 can do much faster

[17:43] <PhonicUK> indeed, you need java
[17:43] <chnopsx> yeah my experience with hosting a server is that those too need a lot of memory (unless you want to restart it really often)
[17:43] <chnopsx> even on my server with 2GB ram it was a big problem and I upgraded to 4GB :s
[17:43] <PhonicUK> its managable if you use a 224 split, pre-generate the map and set it to 4 players max

[17:44] <chnopsx> but.. I do know there is a somewhat stripped down version of mien craft for android, so I guess it's possible in theory

[17:49] <chaoshax> Ooh that was quick
[17:49] <chaoshax> I find that funny as well.
[17:49] <chnopsx> actually, I've not tried it yet on my rip, but does the rip have limitation regarding bitrate?

[18:00] <Viperfang> then 621?
[18:00] <PhonicUK> no its not YYMMDD
[18:00] <PhonicUK> we *know* its YYWW
[18:00] <piless_> Viperfang: 621 would have been built a lot earlier than that
[18:01] <Viperfang> piless_: not if its a batch number
[18:01] <PhonicUK> hmm actually it could be YYMMDD
[18:01] <popey> mine is FN120401531
[18:01] <Viperfang> PhonicUK: I think it is

[18:01] <PhonicUK> sounds about right
[18:02] <PhonicUK> FN120510457 could either be 10th of May 2012

[18:21] <wiijii> I don't have a specific problem just yet; just a Pi booted into Debian and a C270 attached. Thought I'd check if anyone else had progressed
[18:21] <wiijii> Ultimately I'm hoping to do some openCV + webcam
[18:21] <friggle> wiijii: not sure what kernel module that camera requires, but we probably don't have it alalready compiled :/
[18:21] <gurgalof> is it a UVC webcam?
[18:21] <friggle> wiijii: you'll want uvcvideo module I imagine
[18:22] <gurgalof> yeah, ATM you have to compile your own modules...
[18:22] <wiijii> Possibly, or to use the Arch image. It seems openCV is simpler to install on that but there are issues with some other bits (libusb)
[18:22] <gurgalof> until someone fixes this: https://github.com/raspberrypi/linux/issues/21
[18:23] <friggle> gurgalof: yeah, on the list...really need to step through the defconfig again

[18:42] <wiijii> Has anyone used X forwarding successfully?
[18:42] <ShiftPlusOne> yes
[18:43] <craig1> ShiftPlusOne: seems like Linaro maintain a cross-compile toolchain for ARM
[18:43] <friggle> ShiftPlusOne: craig1: they do...but don't use their binary toolchains. They are not friendly to < armv7
[18:43] <PhonicUK> wow
[18:43] <PhonicUK> just wow
[18:43] <ShiftPlusOne> craig1, yeah, there are plenty, I was just asking about an official one like the softfp x86 and hardfloat x86_64 ones they provide.
[18:43] <PhonicUK> ive got Big Buck Bunny 1080p
[18:44] <PhonicUK> its flawless
[18:44] <mithodin> I recently got my hands on my very own raspi, and I'm trying to figure out how to get multimedia keys (from a keyboard or, later, mce remote) working on terminal
[18:44] <friggle> PhonicUK: well of course it is :)
[18:44] <chaoshax> One letter misplaced and it would all go wrong
[18:44] <ShiftPlusOne> friggle, any notes on the codesourcery one?
[18:44] <craig1> friggle: Oh I see..I guess that's why Ubuntu support < armv7 too ?
[18:44] <mithodin> I understand there is no acpi on the raspi? So is there a way to do that without having X running?
[18:44] <craig1> doesn't support*
[18:44] <friggle> ShiftPlusOne: I don't think they have a hardfp build. Plus now you have to sign up to download
[18:44] <wiijii> I'm getting "user not authorized to run X" ... ?
[18:45] <ShiftPlusOne> wiiguy, ssh -Y user@pi_ip lxterminal (or whatever you'd like)
[18:45] <friggle> ShiftPlusOne: but linaro have instructions for building their toolchain using crosstool-ng. Donald has built a linaro toolchain http://qt-project.org/wiki/RaspberryPi
[18:45] <ShiftPlusOne> wiijii, *
[18:45] <wiijii> Yep, will try. Thought it was -X?
[18:45] <friggle> ShiftPlusOne: probably not difficult to modify for hardfp. Plus newer linaro toolchain will prepare you for wheezy, as by my understanding it is multiarch aware

[18:46] <friggle> craig1: more that they're trying to get the best performance, and there's a lot of work around armv7 as a platform (e.g. Linaro are pretty much focused solely on v7)
[18:46] <wiijii> Yep
[18:46] <wiijii> I'll double check though
[18:47] <chaoshax> I have issues as well
[18:47] <ShiftPlusOne> /etc/ssh/sshd_config
[18:47] <chaoshax> Erorr can't open display is mine
[18:47] <chaoshax> X11 forwarding is in sshd_config
[18:47] <chaoshax> Odd
[18:48] <ShiftPlusOne> friggle, I am happy to use the provided one or to compile my own, I am just writting a simple tutorial on how to compile the kernel for the sort of person who thinks it's too complicated, so I don't want to make them compile their own toolchain. Since hardfloat/softfloat doesn't matter for the kernel, it doesn't make too much difference anyway.
[18:49] <ShiftPlusOne> chaoshax, wiijii maybe there's a group you need to be in? You're not trying to do it as root are you?
[18:49] <chaoshax> No
[18:49] <friggle> ShiftPlusOne: you used to be able to skip the codesourcery registration wall by going directly to e.g. https://sourcery.mentor.com/sgpp/lite/arm/portal/release2029 ... no longer :/
[18:50] <wiijii> No

[18:52] <friggle> ShiftPlusOne: actually it's not. Redirects me to their signin page

[18:54] <chaoshax> Should be 6000 right?
[18:54] <ShiftPlusOne> friggle, nuh, I have a dynamic IP and I don't remember signing up to anything
[18:54] <ShiftPlusOne> no, you don't need to start x.
[18:54] <wiijii> No, didn't think so... Hmmm
[18:54] <ShiftPlusOne> but it doesn't matter if you do either
[18:54] <friggle> ShiftPlusOne: ah no, pebcak. Works fine ;)
[18:54] <chaoshax> exec /usr/bin/X -nolisten tcp "$@"
[18:55] <chaoshax> What does this do?
[18:55] <friggle> pebkac rather. eughh, not good today
[18:55] <wiijii> I think my problem is not being auth'd to startx, rather than the forwarding
[18:55] <ShiftPlusOne> wiijii, what command are you running?
[18:56] <wiijii> startx; can that be done over SSH?
[18:56] <ShiftPlusOne> wiijii, I didn't do it that way, what desktop environment are you using?
[18:56] <ShiftPlusOne> and you should launch the actual program you want to use
[18:57] <wiijii> I was trying to run cheese, which failed.
[18:57] <ShiftPlusOne> but you can startlxde, startfxce4 and such as well... but then you'll have yout regular desktop panels interfering.
[18:57] <ShiftPlusOne> Try something simple like xterm
[18:57] <wiijii> I'm not sure what the desktop env. is, I've literally just booted the debian image and started playing
[18:57] <chaoshax> lxde
[18:57] <wiijii> Will do... though xterm isn't installed by default?!
[18:58] <ShiftPlusOne> then install it >_< or try lxterminal
[18:58] <wiijii> Heh, I am installing.
[18:58] <wiijii> Guess I didn't need to add that bit of commentary...
[18:58] <ShiftPlusOne> nuh, it helps to provide all the information
[18:59] <wiijii> Aha, worked
[18:59] <ShiftPlusOne> so x11 forwarding works then
[18:59] <chaoshax> Lets see if it works for me
[18:59] <chaoshax> Display is not set
[19:00] <wiijii> Yeah... how strange. Not sure what changed
[19:00] <ShiftPlusOne> chaoshax, you sure you've got the -Y option there?
[19:00] <wiijii> I used ssh -X
[19:00] <chaoshax> will do again to check

[19:01] <wiijii> localhost:10.0
[19:01] <ShiftPlusOne> looks fine
[19:01] <wiijii> Probably irrelevant, but I logged in as user@<ip> rather than user@<hostname>
[19:01] <wiijii> It now works regardless of what I use.

[19:03] <chaoshax> It's timing out with hostname

[19:07] <chaoshax> Maybe I need to kill that

[22:39] <ShiftPlusOne> and in the future , just use a fake path then copy from there to the sd card to make sure there's no messing around with symlinks I guess

[23:40] <chaoshax> The majority of people who buy these will have never used linux
[23:40] <GabrialDestruir> and on some Distros (OpenELEC I'm looking at you!)
[23:40] <GabrialDestruir> there's no option to even change that info.
[23:41] <ShiftPlusOne> chaoshax, learning the hard way is the best way! =D
[23:41] <ShiftPlusOne> sure there is... you modify the options file before building, don't lie.
[23:41] <GabrialDestruir> -.-
[23:41] <GabrialDestruir> 3+ hours to build for a simple password change?
[23:41] <chaoshax> ShiftPlusOne, That is true, but this was my thought when I saw there was not even a prompt to change it.
[23:41] <GabrialDestruir> Seems a little ridiculous to me.
[23:42] <ShiftPlusOne> GabrialDestruir, no, 3 hour compile because that's part of how that distro works
[23:42] <ShiftPlusOne> you're working with pre-alpha software there
[23:42] <GabrialDestruir> If they just added in passwd properly it wouldn't be such an issue. But alas.... they have not.
[23:43] <ShiftPlusOne> you can't add it properly, it's an initrd image

[23:44] <GabrialDestruir> A modified version of passwd could make the password change and unpackage and repackage with the new change.
[23:44] <kwixson_> ...stuck on where/how to enable UVC
[23:44] <ShiftPlusOne> kwixson_, have you got to menuconfig?
[23:44] <GabrialDestruir> "update" to you new package and voila instant security
[23:45] <sraue> GabrialDestruir, its easy: 1. on a normal install dont use "ssh" in cmdline.txt, then ssh is disabled, so no security issue 2. openelec is not designed to be security, you should use other methods instead running security tools on a mediacenter. 3. you cant, i mean you really cant change the rootfs even as root, so there is no issue too
[23:45] <ShiftPlusOne> GabrialDestruir, contribute that patch to srau e
[23:45] <chaoshax> So is raspbian any good?
[23:45] <chaoshax> Or am I the only one running squeeze?

[23:46] * chandoo (~chandoo@ool-ad032250.dyn.optonline.net) Quit (Ping timeout: 246 seconds)
[23:46] <GabrialDestruir> raspbian was built for Pi
[23:46] <haltdef> you can run wheezy armel if you want :P
[23:46] <GabrialDestruir> squeeze wasn't
[23:46] <kwixson_> ShiftPlusOne: No. To the step right before that.
[23:46] <fakker> no one running raspbmc?
[23:46] <ShiftPlusOne> kwixson_, you'll enable all that stuff during menuconfig
[23:46] <chaoshax> That's true, I think I will try raspbian tomorrow.
[23:47] <GabrialDestruir> Also another method could be to store passwd or w/e in storage somewhere, and just symlink it into /etc/
[23:47] <GabrialDestruir> Then you could still modify it
[23:47] <ShiftPlusOne> kwixson_, did you follow the discussion I had with wiijii?
[23:47] <kwixson_> No. Just now?
[23:47] <sraue> GabrialDestruir, you have full samba access on storage, with the possible to change the samba config and add shares, now think, how secure will your password?
[23:48] <ShiftPlusOne> kwixson_, start from [20:41] here http://srv.datagutt1.com/index.php?date=2012-05-27 make sure you compile the kernel before you compile the modules to avoid the trouble we were having.
[23:48] <GabrialDestruir> How hard would it honestly be to modify the storage so it's not all shared?

[23:51] <GabrialDestruir> I have.
[23:51] <GabrialDestruir> Usually my TV/DVD player doesn't come with a "root" password, but those that do I'm sure it's possible
[23:51] <wizkid057> GabrialDestruir: how long did it take from the time they said it was shipped?
[23:51] <GabrialDestruir> Couple days?
[23:51] <wizkid057> hmm
[23:52] <wizkid057> been about week for me
[23:52] <GabrialDestruir> It got here before the week they said it would arrive
[23:52] <sraue> GabrialDestruir, disable ssh and you are safe, or/and change the password at buildtime, there is no need for our target users to use ssh or a commandline
[23:52] <ShiftPlusOne> sraue, since you're here, I am having some issues. When the splash screen goes away, my screen just stays black (just before VCHIQ failed... I forget the exact letters, but you know what I am talking about). Any idea how to check what's going on there?
[23:52] <wizkid057> hmm.... they gave me an estimated date when i first ordered back in Feb, but they overshot that by almost a month
[23:52] <onefreeman> wizkid057, I got the shipping email from farnell on the 24th and the parcel on the 26th
[23:53] <wizkid057> hmm, ok, i'm off a little bit..
[23:53] <sraue> ShiftPlusOne, i would say to old bootloaderfiles?
