[0:00] <trevorman> I just wrapped a sheet of A4 around it and cut a hole in the side for the HDMI socket...

[0:02] <GabrialDestruir> has anyone else running OpenELEC gotten another skin to play nicely with Pi?

[0:40] <trevorman> huh. somebody forked openelec and claims to have optimised it for rpi - http://darkimmortal.com/2012/05/darkelec-raspberry-pi-optimised-openelec-fork/#comments
[0:41] <trevorman> the iplayer, 4od and itv player addons would be nice...
[0:42] * IT_Sean (~IT_Sean@applefritter/IRCStaff/UltimateMacUser1) Quit (Quit: Linkinus - http://linkinus.com)
[0:42] <sraue> trevorman, as i can see he mostly include some addons/repos per default... which makes not much sense to me
[0:43] * wjoe (~joe@2001:41d0:2:7d6a::1) Quit (Ping timeout: 245 seconds)
[0:43] <trevorman> sraue: yeah
[0:43] <trevorman> mostly interested in what was changed regarding cpu usage
[0:43] <sraue> i think he has a github repo
[0:43] <sraue> will look
[0:44] <trevorman> yeah https://github.com/darkimmortal/DarkELEC
[0:44] <sraue> yes, i dont see much - for us - usefull stuff... maybe this wlan driver
[0:45] <trevorman> wlan doesn't interest me as I'm using wired ethernet anyway )
[0:45] <trevorman> :)
[0:46] <sraue> https://github.com/darkimmortal/DarkELEC/commit/2b706c220b797050104aea8f9358f628c71822a3 thats the only commit which can be usefull, if its needed....
[0:47] <sraue> then he included acpi stuff, which dont makes sense
[0:47] <sraue> dont know why
[0:47] <sraue> https://github.com/darkimmortal/DarkELEC/commit/fc593247e9f1d09a853e60404871ca232f531c46
[0:50] <trevorman> acpi on the rpi? wha
[0:52] * Meatballs is now known as Meatballs|Away
[0:52] <trevorman> not seeing anything at all which would cause reduced cpu usage
[0:53] * chris_99 (~chris@unaffiliated/chris-99/x-3062929) Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[0:54] <trevorman> oh. thats it? https://github.com/darkimmortal/DarkELEC/commit/1edde3b8901f3d3efcb4c522918ae961988151c3
[0:54] <smjms> Milos: what do you use for 3G? an USB modem?
[0:54] <trevorman> disable RSS and background video -.-
[0:57] * [SLB] (~casper@unaffiliated/slabua) Quit (Quit: [ Il motivo per cui le persone sono meravigliose, non ? forse perch? credono nei sentimenti e uniscono le loro vite? ])
[0:57] <Decepshun> oh god so close
[0:57] <Decepshun> I got openelec xbmc working
[0:58] <Decepshun> but I can't connect to my drobo
[0:58] <Decepshun> RAEG
[0:58] <trevorman> ?
[0:58] <lennard> drobo? RAEG?
[0:58] <Decepshun> drobo is a NAS
[0:58] <trevorman> yeah but whats wrong with it?
[0:59] <Decepshun> It wont find it on the network
[0:59] <trevorman> lennard: so angry he can't spell RAGE correctly
[0:59] <Decepshun> so many non-hip people here ;)
[0:59] <Decepshun> but
[0:59] <Decepshun> yeah
[0:59] <trevorman> CIFS? NFS?
[0:59] <Decepshun> I tried NFS won't work
[0:59] <Decepshun> tried SMB...locks up
[1:00] <Decepshun> tried http protocol (lol) denied
[1:00] <Decepshun> dont know what other protocol to use
[1:00] <trevorman> you built openelec yourself?
[1:00] <Decepshun> oh snap
[1:00] * scorphus (~scorphus@CAcert/User/scorphus) Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[1:00] <Decepshun> nevermind
[1:00] <trevorman> k
[1:00] <Decepshun> it didn't lock up...it was compiling
[1:00] <Decepshun> smb did work
[1:01] <trevorman> compiling??
[1:01] <Decepshun> the movie list on the nas
[1:01] <trevorman> oh. was it you that was trying to get xbmc to work on debian?
[1:01] <trevorman> ah
[1:01] <Decepshun> no..there is a distro out there with XMBC on Openelec
[1:01] <trevorman> you must have many many files on your drobo
[1:02] <trevorman> its pretty quick for me even browsing file list
[1:02] <Decepshun> over 3TB so far
[1:02] <Decepshun> I have taken my entire DVD/BR library and ripped it onto it
[1:02] * decadance (~decadance@ Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[1:02] <trevorman> NFS should work though. CIFS and NFS mounting another server works fine for me
[1:03] <Decepshun> NFS gave me errors and that was the most logical protocol choice
[1:03] <trevorman> oh I know why NFS doesn't work for you
[1:03] <Decepshun> why?
[1:03] <trevorman> the drobo probably dislikes it because the NFS client isn't using a secure i.e. < 1024 port
[1:04] <trevorman> no idea how you tell a drobo that you're cool with it doing that. for regular NFS on unix you just specify insecure in the exports
[1:05] * Deb6lin_ (~a@227.Red-88-6-151.staticIP.rima-tde.net) Quit (Quit: Saliendo)

[1:25] <Milos> smjms, yup.
[1:25] <Milos> smjms, I had to use a USB Y-cable because the rpi did not provide enough power via its USB ports.
[1:25] <Milos> I have a 16Ah battery with 5 USB ports that can each provide 5V and 2A.
[1:26] <Milos> It's great.

[1:29] <GabrialDestruir> Ya know.... if someone could produce a bunch of Lapdock kits for the Pi...
[1:29] <GabrialDestruir> they could make some serious money.

[1:31] * koda (~vittorio@host52-207-dynamic.40-79-r.retail.telecomitalia.it) Quit (Quit: koda)
[1:32] <Decepshun> how do you boot into shell without going into the GUI...is there a key to press upon boot?
[1:33] * smjms (~janne@pdpc/supporter/student/kosiini) Quit (Quit: Konversation terminated!)
[1:33] * Yngwiie (~quassel@ Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[1:33] <GabrialDestruir> That happens by default on most distros?
[1:34] <IT_Sean> Indeed
[1:34] <IT_Sean> The official distro boots to a sheel by defaut, anyway.
[1:34] <mythos> is there not a runlevel kernelparameter which should be honored from init?
[1:34] <Decepshun> not this OpenElec woith XBMC on it
[1:34] <Decepshun> it goes right into XBMC
[1:35] <Decepshun> I want to boot to a prompt
[1:35] <GabrialDestruir> That's all OpenELEC does.
[1:35] <GabrialDestruir> It's just XBMC
[1:35] <Decepshun> ah ok
[1:35] <Decepshun> hrm
[1:35] <IT_Sean> ^ wot 'e said
[1:35] <GabrialDestruir> DO people actually say wot?
[1:35] <mythos> Decepshun, than you have to edit /etc/inittab (or whatever initsystem openelec uses)
[1:36] <mythos> *then
[1:36] <Decepshun> how do I exit XBMC to the prompt then?
[1:36] <trevorman> you can't
[1:37] <trevorman> openelec isn't designed to do what you want
[1:37] <Decepshun> figures
[1:37] <trevorman> its literally just xbmc + some support apps
[1:37] <GabrialDestruir> You don't, even if you could kill XBMC it's self start or w/e
[1:37] <mythos> Decepshun, mount the sd-card edit the files? ;)
[1:37] <GabrialDestruir> So you kill it, it starts up again.
[1:37] <mythos> *and
[1:37] <trevorman> raspbmc is probably better as a base for you since its built on debian iirc
[1:38] <trevorman> you'd still need to mod it though but probably less than openelec
[1:38] * XeCrypt is now known as Tuxuser
[1:38] <Decepshun> ugh...wish I was better at linux :|
[1:38] <GabrialDestruir> With Raspbmc you're able to better customize what happens in the background.
[1:38] <GabrialDestruir> Using ssh though
[1:39] <sraue> Decepshun, for what you need the commandline?
[1:39] <trevorman> I assume somebody will eventually package up xbmc for raspbian anyway
[1:39] <DaQatz> Are there pre-built openelec images hosted somewhere?
[1:39] <mythos> sraue, better question: for what does someone not need a shell? #)
[1:39] <Decepshun> well...trevorman..I don't want to wait
[1:39] <DaQatz> Hmmm nm I think I found some
[1:39] <Decepshun> http://kvarley.co.uk/RaspberryPi/OpenELEC/
[1:40] <DaQatz> Yep that's the spot
[1:40] <Decepshun> I just want to resize the second partition
[1:40] <GabrialDestruir> No, but grab the OpenELEC releases and then there's a create_sdcard
[1:40] <Decepshun> because I think when it was building the library, it ran out of space
[1:40] <GabrialDestruir> Linux + Gparted
[1:40] <sraue> DaQatz, the officially location is http://sources.openelec.tv/tmp/image/openelec-rpi/ if you need a disk image you can use for example: http://kvarley.co.uk/RaspberryPi/OpenELEC/
[1:40] <GabrialDestruir> it'll be a lot faster than trying to resize it via cli
[1:40] <trevorman> DaQatz: http://sources.openelec.tv/tmp/image/openelec-rpi/
[1:40] <trevorman> oops too slow
[1:41] <GabrialDestruir> Don't use kvarley with the latest official releases, it doesn't boot.
[1:41] <sraue> mythos, if you want to run a mediacenter distro there is no need for a shell
[1:41] <GabrialDestruir> Well from my experience.
[1:42] <mythos> sraue, but what if you have to debug something?
[1:42] <sraue> mythos, ssh
[1:42] <zgreg> ahh, I just found a bug in the kernel 3.1 the raspberry pi is using
[1:42] <Decepshun> I am just gnashing my teeth here...
[1:42] <zgreg> http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux-2.6.git;a=commit;h=f2815f68dabbb373fd1c9f0fd4a609d486697c2b
[1:42] <mythos> sraue, he does not have a ssh-daemon running, i guess
[1:42] <zgreg> this makes high-speed SD work without hacks with most newer cards
[1:42] <sraue> if he uses openelec he has a ssh daemon running
[1:43] <GabrialDestruir> It runs by default unless you set it not to.
[1:43] <trevorman> zgreg: the sdhc driver will still cap it at 25mhz tho
[1:44] <Decepshun> I give up for today...been working on this all day and nothing has worked..
[1:44] <Decepshun> (not blaming you guys)
[1:44] <Decepshun> just frustrated
[1:44] <zgreg> trevorman: the sdhci driver you mean?
[1:44] <zgreg> trevorman: well, that one caps to 20 MHz by default
[1:44] <trevorman> yeah sorry
[1:45] <mythos> sraue, oh, ok... someone should tell him
[1:45] <sraue> Decepshun, for resizing partitions you can use something like gparted, there is also a live distro
[1:45] <zgreg> but even with the clock cap in the arasn sdhci driver fixed, the kernel would not use high-speed mode with my card
[1:45] <zgreg> the commit above fixes this
[1:45] <trevorman> zgreg: ahh
[1:45] <trevorman> is that why you force 50mhz?
[1:45] <zgreg> yes, that's why my earlier patch forced 50 MHz
[1:46] <trevorman> I was poking around in the code earlier and was wondering why you were doing that since it should have autodetected it
[1:46] <zgreg> with the commit above it's not necessary anymore
[1:46] <Decepshun> sraue: I don't have another linux box to mount the card to resize
[1:46] <Decepshun> and I can't get to the commandline to do it via shell
[1:46] <Decepshun> so bleh
[1:46] <sraue> Decepshun, use gparted live, you can start without installing
[1:46] <trevorman> you can't ssh into it?
[1:46] <Decepshun> oh snap
[1:46] <sraue> and for this you dont need a commandline too
[1:46] <Decepshun> forgot...I could putty to it
[1:47] <sraue> Decepshun, http://gparted.sourceforge.net/livecd.php
[1:47] <trevorman> zgreg: thats pretty cool then. assuming there aren't any dire consequences of increasing the emmc clock to 100mhz then the more than double throughput would be very nice.
[1:48] <trevorman> + no hack to force the speed
[1:48] <zgreg> trevorman: 100 MHz is within specs
[1:48] <Decepshun> sraue: I can use daemon to mount the iso to run it?
[1:48] <Decepshun> from a window box
[1:48] <trevorman> zgreg: the RPi (and broadcom) just has loads of weird design decisions doesn't it?
[1:49] <sraue> why not creating a boot usb stick or a iso and start ?
[1:49] <zgreg> well, all of these SoCs are weird
[1:50] <trevorman> only reason I can think of to intentionally limit it to 20mhz would be power consumption since this is supposed to be a phone soc
[1:50] <zgreg> I have a hunch the abysmally small buffer (1 KB!) in the arasan emmc is why performance is so bad
[1:50] <GabrialDestruir> You mean like a 800Mhz chip and limiting it to 700?
[1:51] <zgreg> trevorman: I can't imagine it makes much of a difference
[1:51] <trevorman> GabrialDestruir: no. you claim that its a 800mhz chip and its limited to 700mhz for the rpi for reliability :P
[1:51] <zgreg> well, even without raising the eMMC clock with the fixes 40 MHz clock would be possible.. that's double of what we have now by default :)
[1:51] <GabrialDestruir> I said it makes logical sense :p
[1:51] <trevorman> true
[1:52] <GabrialDestruir> If we can do 40 without without mods, then why is the default 20?
[1:53] <trevorman> because the kernel doesn't recognise the card as being able to cope with a clockspeed > 25mhz
[1:53] <zgreg> I assume it's a conservative setting introduced because many cards were problematic
[1:53] <GabrialDestruir> Ah, that might be why.
[1:53] * chod (~chod@toy-town.demon.co.uk) Quit (Quit: Lost terminal)
[1:54] <trevorman> can't get 25mhz from 80mhz so the next step down would be 20mhz
[1:54] <trevorman> hmm. i've got some RSMMC cards somewhere. wonder how much they'll stick out from the rpi.

[1:55] <hamitron> they won't?

[2:54] <PhonicUK> I was under the impression they were 1A
[2:54] <IT_Sean> No, the iPad ones are 1A
[2:54] <IT_Sean> the iPhone ones are less.
[2:54] <PhonicUK> ah
[2:55] <eggy> wondering if that's why I'm getting these sd card problems, heard it can be a cause
[2:57] <ReggieUK> IT_Sean, the iphone charger I've got is 1amp
[2:57] <eggy> I have one of the newer chargers
[2:58] <IT_Sean> I apologise, youy are right. the iPod is 1A, the iPad is 23A. I just went and checked mine.
[2:59] <SpeedEvil> 23A seems unlikely.
[2:59] <PhonicUK> I'd guess 2.3
[2:59] <SpeedEvil> Indeed.
[2:59] <IT_Sean> it's dark in here :p it is probably 2.3
[3:00] <PhonicUK> anyone tried DarkELEC?
[3:02] <eggy> yay - no sd errors
[3:02] <trevorman> PhonicUK: its basically openelec with some minor tweaks and some plugins included by default
[3:02] <eggy> I fixed it :)
[3:02] <PhonicUK> is it any good?
[3:03] <nid0> well itll possibly be fractionally slightly better than openelec
[3:03] <trevorman> nid0: the CPU usage reduction is just https://github.com/darkimmortal/DarkELEC/commit/1edde3b8901f3d3efcb4c522918ae961988151c3
[3:03] <trevorman> thats all of it
[3:06] <trevorman> ReggieUK: oh earlier you asked about the rpi and current? I was wrong and so is the schematic. It says 1.1A on there but the actual fitted polyfuse appears to be 700ma so that is the maximum the RPi will want and can use including anything you plug into the USB sockets.

[3:36] <teKuru> doesn't polling to check if interrupts have happened defeat the purpose of an interrupt?

[3:40] <FrankBuss> teKuru: I've used this concept for a vsync interrupt on an embedded system and works nice, even with a standard kernel (and my own modules), if you increase the priority of the waiting thread
[3:40] <SpeedEvil> FrankBuss: I note the dates on that are 2005
[3:40] <Decepshun> teKuru: yes
[3:41] <teKuru> got me then

[3:41] <trevorman> which is strange
[3:41] <SpeedEvil> Not really.
[3:42] <SpeedEvil> MMC!=SD
[3:42] <SpeedEvil> though they are sort-of-compatible in some modes
[3:42] <FrankBuss> SpeedEvil: right, maybe outdated and already new concepts are implemented :-)
[3:42] <teKuru> yeah it is a different format
[3:42] <trevorman> generally anything which accepts a SD card will also do MMC though
[3:42] <trevorman> but the bootloader ROM is tiny so I guess it jsut doesn't like it
[3:42] <trevorman> also isn't this supposed to work with emmc?

[4:13] <blkhawk> ok
[4:13] <blkhawk> anybody around willing to try something crazy
[4:14] <blkhawk> ?
[4:14] <Skrotus> maybe
[4:14] <blkhawk> ok
[4:14] <blkhawk> try setting init_emmc_clock=160000000
[4:15] <blkhawk> in your config.txt file
[4:15] <blkhawk> if you got a class 6 card
[4:15] <blkhawk> init_emmc_clock=240000000 for a class 10
[4:15] <zgreg> err
[4:15] <zgreg> I have a proper fix...
[4:15] <blkhawk> then do a hdparm -Tt
[4:15] <blkhawk> zgreg: it works :P
[4:16] <zgreg> the class is not related to the maximum SD clock
[4:17] <blkhawk> zgreg: I have not enough experimental data to confirm that ;)
[4:17] <blkhawk> but 240mhz getsmycard to 12 mb/sec
[4:17] <zgreg> maybe, but that's completely out of spec of both the eMMC controller and the SD card
[4:18] <blkhawk> zgreg: I am fully expecting the card to start showing errors
[4:18] <blkhawk> zgreg: I think the kernel isn't using the number directly and is only ever apllying it with a divider
[4:19] <blkhawk> i can only speculate tho ;)
[4:20] <zgreg> yes, that is what the kernel does
[4:20] <zgreg> the standard kernel assumes 80 MHz eMMC clock
[4:20] <blkhawk> zgreg: so there is an error that makes it pic a too low number?
[4:21] <blkhawk> from what i read it uses that and drives card with 10mhz
[4:21] <blkhawk> when it should use 20 or 50
[4:21] <zgreg> two things:
[4:21] * wkl (~Conan@ has joined #raspberrypi
[4:21] * PiBot sets mode +v wkl
[4:22] <zgreg> the eMMC SDHCI driver limits the clock to 20 MHz for unknown reasons
[4:22] <zgreg> I guess it's just to be safe, while testing SD card compatibility
[4:22] <blkhawk> probably
[4:22] <zgreg> second, there's a bug in the kernel which prevents newer (SD 3.0) cards from being configured into high-speed (50 MHz) mode
[4:22] <blkhawk> I was just trying things
[4:23] <blkhawk> 400mhz does not work btw ;)
[4:23] <blkhawk> 240mhz seems to work well tho
[4:23] <zgreg> in my branch, I applied a fix for the latter bug, abd removed the 20 MHz limit
[4:23] <blkhawk> a least with this particular card
[4:23] <blkhawk> link? is it hardfp?
[4:23] <zgreg> I also configured the SDHCI driver to assume 100 MHz eMMC clock (that is within the specs)
[4:24] <zgreg> hardfp/softfp distinction does not matter for the kernel
[4:24] <zgreg> http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=63&t=5057&p=91347#p91347
[4:24] <zgreg> just posted this a few minutes ago
[4:25] <blkhawk> lets see what it does ;)
[4:26] <blkhawk> your kernel is a lot smaller than mine
[4:27] <shirro> zgreg: do you have a patch I can apply to my kernel source?
[4:27] <blkhawk> lets hope it has all it needs ;)
[4:27] <zgreg> shirro: bitbucket is down, I can make a git patchset
[4:27] <blkhawk> hmmm
[4:28] <shirro> zgreg: that would be great. thanks

[4:32] <zgreg> odd
[4:32] <blkhawk> zgreg: i wouldn't call this "improved"

[4:33] <zgreg> well, there must be something strange going on
[4:33] <blkhawk> i set it to 80mhz
[4:33] <blkhawk> lol
[4:33] <blkhawk> MMC errors
[4:34] <zgreg> or do you see this abysmal performance with the standard kernel, too?
[4:34] <blkhawk> nooo
[4:34] <blkhawk> its at 4.5mhz there
[4:34] <zgreg> what?
[4:34] <blkhawk> with init_emmc_clock=24000000 i get 12mb/sec

[4:35] <blkhawk> Timing buffered disk reads: 4 MB in 3.43 seconds = 1.17 MB/sec
[4:35] <blkhawk> still pitful
[4:35] <shirro> blkhawk: Although the hdparm speed is awesome I get write errors when I use stock kernel with 160
[4:35] <blkhawk> shirro: I had none
[4:36] <blkhawk> but it was only a somewhat insane thing to try
[4:36] <blkhawk> try zgreg's kernel
[4:36] <trevorman> I'm surprised that it accepts init_emmc_clock=24000000 :P
[4:36] <shirro> overclocking is good fun but would also be good to find a sensible default that will work for everyone
[4:36] <trevorman> its only rated for up to 100mhz

[4:41] <Blaker0111> Anyone happen to know why Fedora is no longer the recommended OS for raspberry pi's? I just got mine today and hit the download section and it seems debian is now the recommended. Cant find an article talking about the reason for the switch though...
[4:41] <SSilver2k2> shirro: has anywork been done on a raspbi repo?
[4:41] <blkhawk> unless you try insane things
[4:41] <zgreg> blkhawk: I don't know, your numbers are so strange and the behavior is so strangely erratic I'd rather not take those results seriously at the moment
[4:42] <shirro> SSilver2k2: the raspbian guys are working on it
[4:42] <blkhawk> zgreg: lets see what other people get
[4:42] <zgreg> Blaker0111: because the fedora port sucks
[4:42] <SSilver2k2> cool
[4:42] <shirro> SSilver2k2: I wouldn't mind something like Ubuntu's ppa though
[4:42] <blkhawk> ah maybe i should mention that i use microsd cards with an adapter
[4:42] * Compy (Compy@c-98-251-52-68.hsd1.ga.comcast.net) Quit ()
[4:43] <SSilver2k2> at this point im enjoying watching items compile successfully. reminds me of my gentoo days
[4:43] <SSilver2k2> lol
[4:43] <SSilver2k2> i really want to get LOVE2D or nlove (love without opengl) working
[4:43] * Quietlyawesome94 (~chatzilla@adsl-074-184-089-183.sip.asm.bellsouth.net) Quit (Ping timeout: 252 seconds)
[4:43] <blkhawk> i will use 240mhz for now
[4:43] <blkhawk> it seems to work well
[4:44] <shirro> SSilver2k2: that would be very cool. Love lua
[4:44] <GabrialDestruir> I used MicroSD with an adapter and it seems to work fine.
[4:44] <zgreg> blkhawk: maybe something is generally off with the kernel I compiled - but it works just fine for me
[4:44] <bootc> I use SD, Mini-SD and Micro-SD all with success
[4:44] <plugwash> Blaker0111, AIUI the image that the team working on fedora for the Pi put out was not up to standard and was pulled until they could sort it out
[4:44] <GabrialDestruir> Wait, we discussing something in particular?
[4:44] <GabrialDestruir> .-.
[4:44] <bootc> the form factor makes no difference
[4:45] <blkhawk> zgreg: welli unpacked your kernel and dropped it into my rasbian install
[4:45] <zgreg> you said it's smaller than your kernel - that's odd, because it's the same size as the vanilla image
[4:45] <blkhawk> bootc: the extra electrical contacts of the adapter might
[4:45] <blkhawk> zgreg: nah i unpacked it and it matched ;)
[4:45] <trevorman> extra contacts?
[4:45] <blkhawk> of the adapter
[4:45] <blkhawk> extra electrical contacts
[4:46] <trevorman> if it does then you've got a really badly made and designed adapter
[4:46] <blkhawk> i said "might"
[4:46] <trevorman> there is no electrical difference between a SD and micro SD. its just a form factor change.
[4:46] <blkhawk> yes
[4:46] <bootc> righ, I'm up *far* too late now, it's 3:45
[4:46] <bootc> but...
[4:46] <bootc> 105: 3986 GPIO17 EDGE-FALLING enc28j60
[4:46] <shirro> blkhawk: I tend to get occasional mmc errors in my logs anyway. not sure if I can attribute them to clock or not. The performance doesn't lift a lot until you get to the insane numbers. 100 is hardly worthwhile so if the zgreg patch works would be very interesting
[4:46] <bootc> my GPIO IRQ code is working a treat
[4:47] <blkhawk> shirro: it scales linerally - i think the stock driver is handling dividers wrong
[4:47] <trevorman> blkhawk: I wouldn't entirely trust your RPi to not corrupt the SD card though since you're telling it to set a clock that is vastly out of spec
[4:47] * Quietlyawesome94 (~chatzilla@adsl-074-184-089-183.sip.asm.bellsouth.net) has joined #raspberrypi

[4:47] <blkhawk> trevorman: i would expect to see some dmesg output to that effect tho
[4:48] <trevorman> it boots and appears to work right now but you've no idea what the clock is even set to
[4:48] <blkhawk> i can always redo or replace the card
[4:48] <SSilver2k2> shirro: my students are building games in love2d right now. if i can get love2d working on the rpi, it would be amazing
[4:48] <blkhawk> ya
[4:49] <GabrialDestruir> Brand new USB drive, and windows can't read it .-.
[4:49] <Crenn-NAS> Just made a case for my RPi :D
[4:49] <shirro> SSilver2k2: good luck with getting it running on gl es. Is it working on a similar platform?
[4:49] <GabrialDestruir> Legos?
[4:49] <blkhawk> papercraft + abs plastic
[4:49] <blkhawk> :D
[4:50] <Crenn-NAS> GabrialDestruir: Don't have legos here
[4:50] <blkhawk> i think i will stay with 240mhz for now
[4:50] <Crenn-NAS> Used the 'punnet' template
[4:50] <blkhawk> Timing buffered disk reads: 40 MB in 3.12 seconds = 12.81 MB/sec <- nice
[4:50] <blkhawk> Crenn-NAS: ya me too
[4:50] <SSilver2k2> shirro: nLove is an ARM/openGL es support. its an older version of love2d and made for handhelds. its having some issues but i may be able to get it compiled
[4:50] <Crenn-NAS> Going to be adjusting the design with a RPi logo and a few other things
[4:50] <Crenn-NAS> blkhawk: What SD card is that?
[4:51] <shirro> SSilver2k2: link? I need to look at this
[4:51] <SSilver2k2> one sec
[4:51] <blkhawk> Crenn-NAS: trancent microsd 16GB class 10
[4:51] <blkhawk> plus one insane adjustment of config.txt
[4:51] <zgreg> shirro: any luck with that kernel image?
[4:51] <Crenn-NAS> Interesting
[4:51] <blkhawk> shirro: ya i am interested too
[4:51] <shirro> I haven't tried yet. I am juggling my laptopin one hand and 2yo in the other
[4:51] <Crenn-NAS> I wonder if it would work well with my Sandisk Ultra >.>
[4:51] <SSilver2k2> http://crankgaming.blogspot.com/2011/02/nlove-070-final-love2d-for-dingoo.html - first site. looking for the github
[4:52] <shirro> zgreg: I may just do a boot with your prebuilt kernel for now
[4:53] <Crenn-NAS> bootc: Do you have a prebuilt module for SPI I can grab?
[4:54] <blkhawk> shirro: please do
[4:54] <bootc> Crenn-NAS: if you're running the Debian image, grab http://www.bootc.net/raspberrypi/linux-image-3.2.18-rpi1+_5_armel.deb
[4:54] <blkhawk> and do a hdparm run
[4:54] <bootc> otherwise, my module probably won't run in your kernel
[4:55] <Crenn-NAS> bootc: Righto
[4:55] <Crenn-NAS> Give me 2 ticks
[4:55] <Crenn-NAS> Need to boot up me Pi
[4:55] <shirro> lots of mmc errors
[4:55] <SSilver2k2> shirro: related forum post: https://love2d.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=2048&start=60
[4:56] <Crenn-NAS> Also a little slow since my neck seized this morning
[4:56] <GabrialDestruir> For some reason plugging in this new USB drive causes my web browser to freeze up
[4:57] <blkhawk> shirro: i had the same effect - try commenting out the init_emmc_clock
[4:57] <SSilver2k2> shirro: ha! https://bitbucket.org/bartbes/nlove
[4:57] <zgreg> do you still have set init_emmc_clock to something very high?
[4:58] <blkhawk> zgreg: i had the same effect
[4:58] <blkhawk> when setting it to 100mhz
[4:58] <SSilver2k2> i was talkign to bartbes yesterday on the love channel. i guess i sparked hsi interest in it again since he started doing commits again
[4:58] <zgreg> well, maybe it is more tricky than I thought
[4:58] <shirro> zgreg: init_emmc_clock=100000000 Timing buffered disk reads: 6 MB in 3.91 seconds = 1.53 MB/sec
[4:58] <zgreg> but really, this worked flawlessly here, with different cards
[4:59] <blkhawk> hui
[4:59] <blkhawk> same result i got :P
[4:59] <zgreg> maybe the kernel I uploaded is simply screwed up, no idea

[5:00] <zgreg> but if you look at the patches, the changes are nothing special, and quite straight-forward
[5:00] <zgreg> what kind of mmc errors do you get?
[5:00] <shirro> zgreg: possibly. I would like to try the patches here but I need to spend time with kids.
[5:01] * ReggieUK (~ReggieUK@5aca5630.bb.sky.com) Quit ()
[5:01] <trevorman> zgreg: course, this might be why its set to such a slow speed in the first place...
[5:01] <shirro> 10 problems reading status register while initialising card -110 and -84 - I usually get a couple though
[5:02] <zgreg> I never get any error
[5:02] <blkhawk> similar here
[5:02] * XeCrypt is now known as Tuxuser
[5:02] <zgreg> not before, and not with the patches either
[5:03] <zgreg> do you have the latest firmware?
[5:03] <blkhawk> yes
[5:03] <shirro> I did have, but it changes :-) will check
[5:04] <blkhawk> zgreg: i looked at your changes and they do not seem to affect the dividers at all
[5:04] <GabrialDestruir> This is weird, I have this epically great computer.... and yet a single USB drive brings it down .-.
[5:05] <zgreg> blkhawk: they change the clock requests the upper layers of the MMC subsystem do
[5:05] * sl00t (~zarac@84-55-97-138.customers.ownit.se) Quit (Quit: leaving)
[5:05] <blkhawk> well it seems to me as if they have the opposite effect
[5:05] <zgreg> without patchset 0001, many cards will never be configured to high-speed mode
[5:07] <Crenn-NAS> bootc: What do you do with .deb files? I'm still a bit of a linux noob
[5:07] <bootc> dpkg -i <deb>
[5:07] <Crenn-NAS> And it's been a few years since I last played with debian
[5:07] <blkhawk> i will try to apply them
[5:07] <bootc> then you need to do a magic dance to put the kernel where the bootloader can find it, and make sure your bootloader is up to date!
[5:07] <zgreg> and patchset 0002 makes the MMC subsystem actually use higher frequencies
[5:07] <bootc> and I really need to head to bed now, sorry :-(
[5:08] <Crenn-NAS> bootc: Not a problem

[5:11] <zgreg> I removed all of the debugging output. that would be useful now ;)
[5:12] <blkhawk> i applied some of your patches
[5:12] <blkhawk> just 2 and 3
[5:12] <blkhawk> lets see what happens
[5:14] <blkhawk> maybe sdhci_bcm2708_get_max_clock is used in a formula somewhere
[5:14] <zgreg> as I said, it's used by the upper layers of the MMC subsystem
[5:14] <shirro> I am rebooting with 1,2 & 3..mmc errors - slow
[5:15] <shirro> I should try a different combo to blkhawk . what do you suggest?
[5:15] <zgreg> are you using an SD 3.0 card?
[5:16] <blkhawk> I would sggest commenting out the line in the config.txt
[5:16] <shirro> All I know is it is a Lexar 8G Class 6
[5:16] <blkhawk> i have some trouble getting the same kernel compiled as i have running now
[5:17] <blkhawk> the config i get from it somehow does not result in the same sized kernel

[5:27] <blkhawk> shirro: I run with patch 2 & 3 no change
[5:28] <blkhawk> 0235800000000000
[5:28] <zgreg> hm, that looks like SD 3.0
[5:28] <shirro> I don't have that path
[5:28] <Crenn-NAS> /dev/mmcblk0: Timing buffered disk reads: 14 MB in 3.11 seconds = 4.49 MB/sec
[5:28] <Crenn-NAS> Hmmm :/
[5:29] <shirro> zgreg: I get all zeros on cat /sys/devices/platform/mmc_host/mmc0/mmc0\:b368/scr
[5:31] <shirro> I might just try patch 2 since that is the clock increase
[5:31] <blkhawk> zgreg: I did patch 1 - getting mmc errors now

[5:32] <blkhawk> patch 1 is causing the errors
[5:33] <zgreg> patch 0001 fixes handling of SD 3.0 cards (and your card seems to be one)
[5:33] <zgreg> without that, the card will not be configured to high-speed
[5:33] <zgreg> that's why you are not seeing any improvements with 0002/0003 alone
[5:34] <blkhawk> ok
[5:34] <blkhawk> i will lower the speed to 20mhz
[5:34] <zgreg> but there's off with the initialization, it seems

[5:37] * Laogeodritt is now known as PenguinLao
[5:38] <trevorman> blkhawk: what does the mmc driver think your card is anyway? it should print out a line in the kernel messages similar to mmc0: new BLAH card at address XXX
[5:39] <blkhawk> zgreg id it as 3.0
[5:39] <trevorman> yeah but what is the kernel saying it is
[5:40] <trevorman> shirro: you don't have that specific directory because the RCA suggested by the card is different. its model specific.
[5:40] <trevorman> shirro: its normal anyway
[5:40] <blkhawk> mmc0: new SDHC card at address b368
[5:41] <zgreg> well, with patch 0001, it should say something like
[5:42] <zgreg> mmc0: new high speed SDHC card at address 0002
[5:42] <trevorman> yeah

[5:45] <shirro> can it go to high speed without the voltage change?
[5:45] <zgreg> I don't know what's going on, but the kernel always initializes the card in 400 khz first, and only switches to higher speed later
[5:45] <Crenn-NAS> shirro: Not with UHS-I
[5:46] <zgreg> well, UHS-I is not high speed
[5:46] <zgreg> it is "ultra high speed" ;)

[5:46] <Crenn-NAS> I'd call it high speed ;P
[5:47] <shirro> well I am not getting any joy from these patches. Errors and 1/4 the speed. Guess my card is not good enough.
[5:47] <shirro> Patch 2 alone kills the speed of my card
[5:47] <blkhawk> shirro: i have the same effect
[5:48] <trevorman> zgreg: you need to run it at 400 khz for initialisation
[5:48] <zgreg> yes, I know
[5:48] <trevorman> mmc does anyway. idk if SD is special
[5:48] <zgreg> what I wanted to say is, the kernel does the "right thing"
[5:48] <blkhawk> trevorman: the patches are really just some small things
[5:48] <trevorman> never looked at the SD spec as it costs way too much

[9:39] <ShiftPlusOne> kodaws, it feels more 'right' to me. SSH is enabled by default, the kernel and firmware is in the repos and it updated when you update the system. The kernel config is a little better than the default as well. It's stable. It doesn't come with a lot of preinstalled stuff you won't use.
[9:39] <frankivo> I hope to get it by the end of this month :P

[10:01] <ShiftPlusOne> then I'd just try taking the card out and reinserting it, making sure you have good contact. Without the full log, it's hard to tell what's going on, but it looks like you may have corrupted the filesystem somehow or the kernel doesn't support the filesystem... or your cmdline points to the wrong root.
[10:02] <djazz> i did re-insert it
[10:02] <djazz> i can read it just fine from my laptop

[10:03] <phoque> pulling the plug and putting it back within 5-10 seconds prevents mine to boot properly
[10:03] <ShiftPlusOne> ah yes
[10:03] <phoque> I have to leave it unplugged for a few seconds for the OK light to start flashing
[10:04] <ShiftPlusOne> is it connected to a hub?

[10:05] <ShiftPlusOne> give it some time to discharge everything. I've had problems like that, but it has only happened a few times.
[10:05] <phoque> I think unplugging the Ethernet as well did help a bit
[10:05] <ShiftPlusOne> I was just asking about the hub just incase it's back-feed from the hub.

[10:09] <ShiftPlusOne> you may not need it
[10:09] <ShiftPlusOne> the important part that you're missing is root=/dev/mmcblk0p2
[10:10] <ShiftPlusOne> console=ttyAMA0 is just for serial, and since you're not using it, you don't need that either.

[10:20] <phoque> ShiftPlusOne, the monitor tells your graphics card what modes it supports using the EDID
[10:21] <phoque> if the EDID is broken, the graphics card will either be confused or refuse to recognise the monitor at all
[10:21] <ShiftPlusOne> djazz, if you don't have console=tty1 in cmdline, you don't get the boot sequence output going to the display, so it looks like it freezes to you, until it's done booting and the login prompt comes up.
[10:21] <djazz> ShiftPlusOne: i had two console= with different values
[10:21] <djazz> but i still see the SD card errors
[10:21] <ShiftPlusOne> is one of them tty1?

[11:39] <Trickierstinky> lol
[11:39] <Trickierstinky> anybody tried darkelec yet?
[11:41] <bolosaur> Are there any good pi alternatives out as of now?
[11:41] <bolosaur> Maybe I could buy that instead while waiting for the pi to arrive

[11:42] <Trickierstinky> the only one I have seen is the beagle board, but seems to cost a fair bit more
[11:43] <nid0> via have one on the way but that also is not available to buy right now

[11:45] <GabrialDestruir> On one of the games, they graphics crashed as it started, the other was when I killed it.
[11:45] <bolosaur> GabrialDestruir: Which games?
[11:46] <bolosaur> I play a lot of games on VMs quite perfectly, but I don't think they utilize hardware acceleration
[11:46] <GabrialDestruir> Limbo and Swords and Sworcery
[11:46] <bolosaur> or maybe they do, though partly?
[11:46] <bolosaur> aha
[11:46] <GabrialDestruir> So I wasn't really expecting them to run anyways xD
[11:46] <bolosaur> I'm quite sure VM gfx cards are software
[11:46] <bolosaur> which might be the reason
[11:46] <GabrialDestruir> Most likely. lol
[11:46] <bolosaur> Well dude, I play WoW in virtualized Windows 7
[11:46] <frankivo> bolosaur: vbox supports hw acceleration

[11:46] <bolosaur> on a macbook pro
[11:46] <bolosaur> :)

[11:55] <chancellorsmith> your excellent guide i keep referring back to it https://projects.drogon.net/raspberry-pi/initial-setup1/

[11:56] <chancellorsmith> one question (to anyone) re the swap
[11:56] <chancellorsmith> is it ok to come back and do the swap file at any time ?
[11:56] <nid0> yes
[11:56] <chancellorsmith> it can be done later on - that right ?

[11:56] <chancellorsmith> thought so
[11:56] <nid0> it isnt that essential, but you might have memory problems if you try doing anything particularly challenging
[11:56] <chancellorsmith> is it like a "page file " in windows
[11:56] <nid0> yes
[11:56] <chancellorsmith> i mean it's a large temp file in effect
[11:57] <chancellorsmith> and as such I could create it any time later
[11:57] <bolosaur> Man wouldn't it be possible to attach like
[11:57] <bolosaur> a tiny keyboard to one's pi
[11:57] <bolosaur> and maybe even a mouse nub
[11:58] <nid0> ofc
[11:58] <bolosaur> wouldnt that be awesome
[11:59] <chancellorsmith> lots of warnings in the packaging about not powering Pi off of other devices USB ports???..works fine for me though??? what do others think ?
[11:59] <chancellorsmith> warnings relate to system stability rather than damaging it
[11:59] <chancellorsmith> but it's stable for me
[11:59] <chancellorsmith> maybe i should use a volt meter on the test points and see what it reads

[12:21] <Trickierstinky> see I have no creative flair to think of anything like that

[12:23] <blkhawk> ah well I had one but I hosted it on a homeserver thats offline (permanently) bow
[12:23] <blkhawk> I had mostly arduino based stuff on there
[12:24] <blkhawk> another idea is to mount the Pi to my quadcopter
[12:24] <Trickierstinky> ahh right, shame also love arduino stuff aswell
[12:25] <blkhawk> i made a "talking" clock a few years ago
[12:25] <GabrialDestruir> I think option sound would be ideal.... and a way to move backwards and forwards through a clip. That way if you saw something interesting you could unmute rewind it

[12:29] <blkhawk> tho i thought about implementing it as "mode" for the virtual window
[12:30] <Trickierstinky> sorry, mode?
[12:30] <blkhawk> it all depends on how much cpu power the kinect needs to let me locate the head of a person
[12:31] <blkhawk> Trickierstinky: the hardware setup for the "virtual" windows and the youtuble player could be similar
[12:31] <blkhawk> a 16:9 tv mounted vertically
[12:31] <Trickierstinky> oh right ok
[12:32] <blkhawk> i thought about a small youtube player too
[12:32] <blkhawk> say 7" or so yes
[12:32] <Trickierstinky> all I can say is where do you get your ideas, and what ever it is send some my way :P all I can think of is a mame coffee table and airplay device
[12:32] <blkhawk> i might use the raspberry dsi interface there
[12:33] <blkhawk> the airplay device i already have - my webradio does that to ;)
[12:33] <Trickierstinky> nice
[12:33] <blkhawk> well to be honest this is all stuff i either did before
[12:33] <blkhawk> but not to my satisfaction
[12:34] <blkhawk> or that I shelved due to a lack of hardware
[12:34] <blkhawk> for instance the vistual window implementation somebody did used a wiimote + sensor bar + a powermac to drive the display

[13:15] <blkhawk> gordonDrogon: read the inital setup thing - your filesystem opptions are suboptimal
[13:15] <blkhawk> use relatime
[13:15] <blkhawk> and you can leave off the nodiratime
[13:16] <blkhawk> its included in noatimr/relatime
[13:16] <gordonDrogon> blkhawk, I always wondered about nodiratime
[13:16] <gordonDrogon> will read up on relatime.
[13:17] <blkhawk> its basically slightly slower than noatime
[13:17] <blkhawk> but more compatible with programs that rely on atime like mutt
[13:17] <gordonDrogon> yea, but who is going to run anything on a Pi that actually need atime ...
[13:17] <blkhawk> unlikely yes
[13:17] <blkhawk> as for the diratime - just grep the kernel for it
[13:18] <gordonDrogon> I've used noatime for quite some years on all my PCs/servers..

[13:18] <gordonDrogon> if no atime implies nodiratime then that's better.
[13:19] <blkhawk> actually i use relatime,data=writeback,barrier=0,nobh
[13:19] <gordonDrogon> also more about reducing number of writes to the SD though
[13:19] <blkhawk> but i risk some dataloss there
[13:19] <blkhawk> it reduces journaling writes to the sd tho
[13:19] <gordonDrogon> will do some more research.

[13:26] <blkhawk> workedfine for 8 hours
[13:26] <blkhawk> 240mhz is nice and stable
[13:26] <blkhawk> I doubt it sets the clock to that
[13:26] <shirro> mine panicked at 260

[13:27] <blkhawk> but the devider gets calculated based on the value you give
[13:27] <shirro> well it does something. because hdparm goes nuts

[13:29] <shirro> I was getting around 10MB/s at 200Mhz but I decided to go back to 160. The same card on the arm board next to it does 15MB/s with hdparm
[13:30] <blkhawk> if you set it too high the card goes too high for the mode and then it throws errors
[13:30] <Trickierstinky> this all sound very foreign to me, god i need to up my geek game!
[13:30] <blkhawk> i read a board posting by somebody who attached an scope to the sdcard clock line and found that it is driven far below the 20mhz it should be driven at

[13:32] <shirro> it must be doing something very damn inneficiently to need to clock it up like that though. In the end I can get just over 2/3 of what a normal arm SoC can do by running it completely out of spec
[13:32] <blkhawk> it gets me 12mb/sec data on the sd card

[13:32] <phoque> :-D
[13:32] <blkhawk> shirro: again i do not think we are really clocking that high
[13:32] <blkhawk> there is some formula that allies a divider wrongly

[13:38] <blkhawk> I imagine the spped you can set varies from card to card and we are just doing manually what usually happpens automatically

[13:39] <blkhawk> i get 16mb/sec writes with a sd card reader

[13:56] <IT_Sean> postie pat take the day off?
[13:56] <blkhawk> SpeedEvil: that must be torture - having the unoptaniumish raspberry and alll thats missing is a dinky sd card
[13:56] <SpeedEvil> Sorry - that was inappropriate.
[13:56] <bootc> I didn't realise changing the clock rate would make such a difference, I wonder if that means the SDHC driver doesn't realise the clock runs faster
[13:56] <SpeedEvil> Charles's.
[13:56] <blkhawk> bootc: I think it gets clamped to 80mhz

[13:56] <Trickierstinky> thats strange the file is no longer there...
[13:56] <SpeedEvil> blkhawk: I have even rarer stuff.
[13:56] <SpeedEvil> blkhawk: nokia n950.
[13:56] <blkhawk> and a second place is calculating the sd card speed not with that value but with the value from the config.txt
[13:57] <bootc> something we'll have to keep in mind when we get to rewriting the SDHC driver

[13:58] <gordonDrogon> oh? if the n950 had a keyboard and maps I'd have bought it... maybe. because the n900 never got proper maps I got well annoyed with it.
[13:58] <SpeedEvil> You cannot buy the n950. It wasn't sold.
[13:58] <gordonDrogon> I know.
[13:58] <SpeedEvil> It has a keyboard.
[13:58] <SpeedEvil> And maps.
[13:58] <blkhawk> bootc: I suggest a set config.txt options that lets one set the sd card bus speed seperately from the emmc speed
[13:58] <SpeedEvil> What do you mean by 'proper' maps?
[13:58] <IT_Sean> Somebody please tell my laptop that Bluescreening on a monday morning is just not right.

[13:59] <bootc> well, the kernel doesn't look at it, clearly changing the clocks affects the kernel
[13:59] <SpeedEvil> It would have been the best thing ever - 2 years ago.
[13:59] <gordonDrogon> I've had all the nokia communicators since day 1, but the n900 annoyed me by not having talking navigation.
[13:59] <blkhawk> bootc: so the emmc gets initalized with a crazy value?
[13:59] <haltdef> no, it still would be
[13:59] <SpeedEvil> Now, a lot of the devs have defected over to android.
[13:59] <blkhawk> and that causes the sd speed to go up?
[13:59] <blkhawk> thats strange ^2
[13:59] <haltdef> android is pleh :/
[13:59] <bootc> blkhawk: no idea, I haven't looked at the mmc code very much at all yet
[13:59] <SpeedEvil> haltdef: yes.
[13:59] <Trickierstinky> blkhawk, the config.txt is getting removed each reboot?

[14:00] <haltdef> I'd imagine a lot of them would come back for a successor
[14:00] <blkhawk> Trickierstinky: it doesn't

[14:00] <Trickierstinky> mine is no longer there after reboot, I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong then
[14:00] <blkhawk> i would call that black box culture
[14:01] <blkhawk> it was so bad that a phone like the mameo looked marginally tempting
[14:01] <SpeedEvil> ROMs are pretty much black boxes, that are comprised of lots of bits of stolen software.

[14:04] <SpeedEvil> blkhawk: Yes, and no. There are technical arguments about libc, and kernel, and the software stack. The more important thing is that you had to root it. And the fact that you can't generally edit the firmware at all.

[14:07] <blkhawk> nope
[14:08] <blkhawk> its exploitiga bug tho
[14:08] <ReggieUK> ppffft, there are no bugs
[14:08] <blkhawk> might stop working when the driver is fixed
[14:08] <IT_Sean> only features!
[14:08] <trevorman> be aware that setting it to 240mhz is vastly out of spec :P
[14:08] <ReggieUK> just undocumented/unexploited features
[14:08] <blkhawk> and you are welcome
[14:08] <trevorman> it should only be 50-100mhz
[14:08] <trevorman> in theory zgreg's fix is the proper one but it doesn't work for everybody
[14:08] <ReggieUK> but will 100mhz give linearly similar results?

[14:10] <blkhawk> I have the theory that there is a bug in the emmc code where the emmc is limited to 80 or 100 mhz but the card bus is set as a fraction of the config.txt value
[14:10] <trevorman> mine does. the external branding is lexar. no idea who actually makes the controller.
[14:11] <zgreg> blkhawk: it's not a bug, the kernel assumes a certain eMMC clock, and the SD clock must be a divider of the eMMC clock
[14:11] <zgreg> that's just how the hardware works
[14:11] <ReggieUK> blkhawk, emmc is relatively new though isn't it?

[14:20] <blkhawk> thats annoying
[14:21] <blkhawk> and that reminds me
[14:21] <nemo> Soo. does changing that clock setting have any possible negative side effects?
[14:21] <trevorman> the peripheral datasheet that broadcom released doesn't seem to mention it either. I was looking at it last night
[14:21] <nemo> like to the card life?
[14:21] <blkhawk> has anybody tried disabling the l2 for the GPU?
[14:21] <kvarley> nemo: Changing the clock speed ... No ... Changing the voltage ... Yes
[14:21] <blkhawk> nemo: card life? probably not
[14:21] <trevorman> nemo: card life no but there is a possibility of corruption since we're not entirely sure what the clock speed ends up at and you might be out of spec for the controller and/or card
[14:22] <nemo> 'k

[14:22] <blkhawk> and see if it works without mmc errors
[14:22] <nemo> gained any significant speeds?
[14:22] <trevorman> the peripheral datasheet talks about how the clock manager is where you set the emmc clock but then fails to actually say how you're supposed to do that. it only talks about GPIO clocks.
[14:22] <blkhawk> nemo: 12,x mb/scx
[14:22] <kvarley> nemo: You can clock up to 800 MHz without any voltage changes and have a stable RPi. I have heard of people getting 900 MHz without any voltage changes but it could depend on your board too. 1GHz can be done but you need to bump the voltage up slightly. Any voltage changes may degrade the board and it's components over time.
[14:23] <nemo> kvarley: overclocking the Pi I've already done
[14:23] <kvarley> nemo: Ah
[14:23] <kodaws> oh 1ghz is doable?
[14:23] <trevorman> blkhawk: why would you want to disable L2 for the GPU?
[14:23] <nemo> kvarley: 900 seems pretty safe from all reports, and mine is doing well at that
[14:23] <gordonDrogon> I have 3 running at 900MHz + 500MH SDRAM, however only one of them will run hello_triangle at 500MHz.
[14:23] * blkhawk hands nemo a "I voided my warranty sticker"
[14:23] <nemo> kvarley: I was more curious about the SD card overclocking
[14:23] <nemo> blkhawk: didn't overvolt
[14:24] <trevorman> ^
[14:24] <shirro> kvarley: I can't get over 850/450 cpu/sdram and stay stable-ish. But with a voltage bump I am running 1G. My spare from RS can't be far away now so getting more daring :-)
[14:24] <kvarley> nemo: Ah - may be more risky. I hear network booting is faster than the SD
[14:24] <blkhawk> trevorman: say you want to run something cpu limited on the raspberry but didn't care about GFX
[14:24] <kvarley> shirro: hehe
[14:24] <kvarley> shirro: What temperatures do you get when at 1GHz ?
[14:24] <nemo> kvarley: I could believe that. hdparm reports SD card read speed at 4.2MiB/s or so
[14:24] <trevorman> blkhawk: the GPU is intricately linked to the CPU. RAM is actually behind the GPU.
[14:24] <nemo> kvarley: network is a lot faster than that
[14:24] <shirro> kvarley: I don't think these things overheat. they work or don't. not like intel radiators
[14:25] <kvarley> nemo: Is SD slow because of bottlenecking or just "bad" firmware
[14:25] <blkhawk> trevorman: I thing the lk2 is used fot the video decoding / 3d
[14:25] <blkhawk> think*
[14:25] <trevorman> blkhawk: the GPU also still does some unspecified maintenance tasks even if you're not using it
[14:25] <nemo> kvarley: dunno. that's why I'm here asking about the SD overclocking :-p
[14:25] <kvarley> shirro: Go for 1.2 GHz ? ;)
[14:25] <trevorman> blkhawk: besides, no option to disable it
[14:25] <blkhawk> trevorman: i cannot guess what those might be
[14:25] <blkhawk> trevorman: there is
[14:25] <kodaws> shirro, 3GHz with liquid cooling ftw!
[14:25] <trevorman> blkhawk: where?
[14:26] <nemo> blkhawk: you can underclock the gpu but by all accounts that is pretty stupid
[14:26] <nemo> blkhawk: since the GPU automatically ramps down when not in use
[14:26] <blkhawk> disable_l2cache disable arm access to GPU's L2 cache. Needs corresponding L2 disabled kernel. Default is 0.
[14:26] <IT_Sean> kodaws: the CPU would go POP long before you got to 3GHz
[14:26] <nemo> blkhawk: if you underclock, that is disabled
[14:26] <shirro> kvarley: More interested in proving this combo is reliable before I go up a notch. The GPU is the hardest thing to overclock
[14:26] <trevorman> blkhawk: read that line again :P
[14:26] <blkhawk> not sure what it does tbh;)
[14:26] <trevorman> blkhawk: that lets you dedicate the entire L2 to the GPU

[14:50] <shirro> you just wait and hope you don't get an empty box
[14:50] <blkhawk> i got a notice by farnell that they shipped me a raspberry a week ago
[14:50] <netman87> f-word u shirro
[14:50] <blkhawk> it hasn't gotten here yet
[14:51] <blkhawk> netman87: for me i got a notice after the box was delivered
[14:51] <netman87> okey. there was tracing code?
[14:51] <trevorman> netman87: who did you order from

[14:53] <netman87> "Delivery Type Desc Standard Delivery (Despatch expected within 5 week(s))"
[14:53] <KrnlPanic> netman87: I made more order and payment in March, will ship next week.. lol
[14:53] <Slayerduck> i just tried to update firmware with Hexxeh rpi-update. I got error "/opt/vc/sbin/vcfiled: error while loading shared libraries: libvchiq_arm.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory" so i rebooted and now it won't load anymore. What gives ?
[14:54] <shirro> netman87: I have been waiting over 2 weeks for RS. no news since they confirmed the order and took my money. just have to wait I think
[14:54] <Slayerduck> I got mine from RS today btw ^
[14:55] <nemo> blkhawk: huh. no change in hdparm read speed...
[14:55] <trevorman> Slayerduck: check that everything works okay like both USB ports and ethernet
[14:56] <trevorman> somebody said that they had a RPi with dead USB
[14:56] <nemo> blkhawk: maybe sliiiightly faster than yesterday

[14:59] <nemo> blkhawk: I think that's about what I had yesterday

[15:01] <trevorman> hm. yet another controller that acts differently

[15:01] <trevorman> Hi
[15:02] <nemo> trevorman: is it possible to use # to comment out in config.txt ?
[15:02] <trevorman> yeah
[15:02] <shirro> It would have to be a slow card. My lexar class 6 does 15MB/s hdparm on the other arm board. If your card goes faster elsewhere it isn't the card probably. My card like everyone elses it seems does 4 and a bit on the Pi, and double the emmc clock doubles the speed to over 8.
[15:02] <trevorman> so far we've got two fixes for the SD card speed and neither of them appear to be universal
[15:03] <trevorman> nemo: what brand and speed/class is your card?
[15:03] <nemo> trevorman: class 6
[15:03] <nemo> brand. ummm
[15:03] <shirro> zgreg's didn't work at all for me though the code looked sensible. did it work for anyone?
[15:03] * nemo walks over to that room to check
[15:03] <blkhawk> nemo: you must be doing it wong ;)
[15:03] <blkhawk> it worked for everybody else so far
[15:03] <trevorman> class 6 should be good for 6MB/s at least
[15:04] <nemo> trevorman: sandisk
[15:04] <nemo> trevorman: card says 20MBs which I definitely do not get
[15:04] <gordonDrogon> my c6 says 30MB ...
[15:04] <gordonDrogon> I can now get 12!

[15:20] <Slayerduck> phoque: i had that error, if you reboot the disk is prob dead.

[15:21] <blkhawk> thats not snail mail
[15:21] <trevorman> you must have ordered when a batch had just arrived
[15:21] <blkhawk> more like badger express
[15:21] <phoque> Slayerduck, the disk will be dead?

[15:21] <nemo> took longer in customs
[15:21] <blkhawk> I am of course counting from time of posting it to the time it got here
[15:21] <phoque> Slayerduck, meaning the device will be bricked?
[15:21] <nemo> and that he definitely had to pay import duties on
[15:21] <nemo> a Pi might get by maybe
[15:22] <blkhawk> a pi is below 140EUR
[15:22] <Slayerduck> phoque: the firmware is stored on the SD card as far as i know, reinstalling the SD will fix it
[15:22] <blkhawk> so yes it does not get duty applied
[15:22] <phoque> ah, I see
[15:22] <Slayerduck> i hope so atleast <_<
[15:22] <blkhawk> sometimes not even VAT

[15:24] <Milos> :P
[15:24] <trevorman> and the RPi wouldn't even be a good paperweight. its too light

[15:24] <phoque> Slayerduck, mine survived

[16:11] <gordonDrogon_> it's not a proper CE logo though
[16:12] <IT_Sean> Early batch RasPis will not have the CE logo
[16:12] <trevorman> ahh
[16:13] <trevorman> what gordonDrogon said as well. its not the right font :)
[16:13] <IT_Sean> The stickers were a bid of an 11th hour deal, on the early ones.

[16:25] <MarkG1234> Hi, trying to find a DNLA renderer that works for the PI. Want to push media from my phone and use the pi's audio and HDMI out. XBMC seems to be proprietary, as does AirPlay.
[16:25] <gordonDrogon_> I've not really had an issue with it being slow myself, however I'm not really doing lots of file bashing on it - that's not really what I got it for.
[16:26] <chris_99> Merry Jubilee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
[16:26] <nemo> gordonDrogon_: well. compiling on it is a bit slow
[16:27] <nemo> gordonDrogon_: also, unless I plug in some external HD, swap partition is ridiculously slow
[16:27] <shirro> nemo: the fastest option is still usb storage
[16:27] <nemo> shirro: aware
[16:27] <MarkG1234> @chris_99 I think that's tommorrow.
[16:27] <gordonDrogon_> nemo, be sure it's actually the SD that's slow here - when I upped my SD speed it didn't make any difference at all to the compile speed of my app.
[16:27] <Trickierstinky> markg1234: I've been playing around and the best and easiest one I found so far is Darkelec, boots xbmc but i think it the most stable atm
[16:27] <nemo> shirro: I'd be more inclined to do NFS frankly

[16:28] <nemo> gordonDrogon_: anyway. have a card rated for 20MiB/s - seems silly to only get like a quarter of that
[16:28] <MarkG1234> (not that I really care, it's a long weekend, but I don't give a crap about the royal leeches)

[16:32] <bjorn`> oh, it runs nicely at 900?
[16:32] <gordonDrogon_> rotozip, yup. get the squeeze image off the raspberry pi site and start there...
[16:32] <gordonDrogon_> nemo, 250 is the default.
[16:33] <nemo> gordonDrogon_: but setting it supposedly disables dynamic scaling
[16:33] <gordonDrogon_> bjorn`, yes. I have 3 running at 900MHz OK.
[16:33] <shirro> bjorn`: not for everyone. mine seems to go to 850 ok without overvolt
[16:33] <nemo> gordonDrogon_: so GPU can't ramp down as needed
[16:33] <gordonDrogon_> nemo, oh? *shrug*
[16:33] <bjorn`> nice.
[16:33] <shirro> gpu got artifacts as soon as I overclocked it

[16:35] <gordonDrogon_> shirro, Ah. I've not tried overvolt yet :)
[16:36] <IT_Sean> a Class 6 should work. But, as others have said, it's hit or miss.
[16:36] <rotozip> gordonDrogon_ cool thanks. I will check that out.
[16:36] <shirro> gordonDrogon_: I figured my replacement can't be much more than a week away :-)
[16:36] <IT_Sean> Do you have another 'crappier' SD card to try with?
[16:36] <gordonDrogon_> MarkG1234, I have one of those too. Says it works on te wiki - I've found it somewhat tempramental..
[16:36] <Vilkku> hello! question about powering the pi: can I use one of those microusb adapter charger thingies? this one I have is 5V, but the current is higher than recommended - 2.1 A
[16:36] <IT_Sean> Yes, a higher current is fine
[16:36] <shirro> Vilkku: that should be fine
[16:36] <Vilkku> great :D
[16:36] <IT_Sean> the raspi will only 'draw' what it 'needs'
[16:36] <nemo> gordonDrogon_: what does disable_overscan do?
[16:36] <IT_Sean> the current stated on the charger is the MAXIMUM allowable draw
[16:37] <gordonDrogon_> nemo, makes the screen bigger...
[16:37] <trevorman> Vilkku: higher current is fine. it just means thats what is available. higher voltage = bad

[16:37] <Vilkku> yeah, figured as much, but the quick guide I think said 700-1200 mA, so I was wondering if there was some upper limit as well :)
[16:37] <trevorman> nope
[16:37] <Foxhoundz> My Pi has finally arrived at DFW Airport!
[16:37] <Foxhoundz> Only a few hours before I get my hands on it
[16:37] <trevorman> you could use a 10A supply assuming you weren't nuts enough to accidentally short it
[16:37] <Vilkku> :D
[16:37] <IT_Sean> FRAZAP
[16:38] <gordonDrogon_> you could connect a 200amp welding set up to it, but as long as it was regulated to 5V you'd be fine.
[16:39] <Vilkku> since I'm here, another question: does anyone here have any hands-on experience with the Pi and a logitech K400? wiki says that there is a no pointer movement issue, but that a firmware update "restores pointer but sticky key problem when connected through Trust powered hub."
[16:39] <shirro> Am thinking of blowing the dust of the soldering iron and trying to bridge the usb poly fuses. It all looks so tiny to my eyes.
[16:39] <trevorman> shirro: you'd need to do all 3 fuses
[16:39] <gordonDrogon_> big magnifier :)
[16:39] <nemo> Vilkku: my keyboard issues were just not enough power

[16:40] <nemo> I guess a nicer hub would have helped too
[16:40] <Vilkku> yeah
[16:40] <trevorman> the fuses themselves are massive. using a massive solder bridge isn't really a great idea though. you need to put a piece of wire there
[16:40] <gordonDrogon_> I'm happy with my hub - for now. my little keyboard seems OK directly off the Pi though.
[16:40] <shirro> trevorman: I was thinking just the two sucky usb ones. The main fuse should be ok
[16:40] <Vilkku> I was looking at the K400, but checked wiki before I got it, so I got one of these instead: http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-66fRV0wMiss/TpHySRMTu6I/AAAAAAAABBY/aDW7QNZHPOE/s400/pan-code-d1000.JPG
[16:40] <trevorman> shirro: the main fuse is only 700ma despite what the schematic claims
[16:40] <Vilkku> seems to work great, but would have preferred the logitech, it's bigger and fancier
[16:40] <ReggieUK> I've just made a post on the forums regarding usb hubs

[16:41] <ReggieUK> it's the last post
[16:41] <Vilkku> but anyway, this will be mainly plugged into my TV I figured, so I guess I might end up appriciating that they keyboard isn't huge
[16:41] <shirro> trevorman: that sucks. what were they thinking
[16:41] <trevorman> shirro: yeah. the schematic says it should be 1.1 but the actual fuse is marked "07" so its going to be 700ma

[16:53] <trevorman> the "8GB" stick that only has like 1GB worth of flash in but with a screwed up config so it appears to be 8GB
[16:53] <gordonDrogon_> It did for someone the other day who's SD card wouldn't work at all.
[16:54] <nemo> gordonDrogon_: tiny bit worried about stuff not booting, but... it is the exact same HW, so why wouldn't it work :)
[16:54] <gordonDrogon_> however my kernel is pretty "lean". No wifi for example...
[16:54] <trevorman> nemo: probably okay for them. can never really tell. just hope for the best.
[16:54] <nemo> gordonDrogon_: eh. not using wifi right now

[16:58] <nemo> gordonDrogon_: looks like we have the same bootcode.bin and loader.bin different start.elf and kernel.img - I suppose that's not that surprising
[16:58] <nemo> oh well. here goes! :D
[16:58] <gordonDrogon_> that srter might be the 224 one.
[16:58] <trevorman> don't think your cards are counterfeit anyway. just more curious about different revisions or models of the internal controller

[17:06] <nemo> trevorman: well. the sound thing, and the slow SD card thing
[17:07] <gordonDrogon_> not really a Debian thing though - it wa someone (Dom?) from the foundation that compiled up the kernel supplied.
[17:07] <nemo> trevorman: until I booted gordonDrogon_'s kernel, alsamixer thrashed helplessly and nothing seemed to be aware of a sound card existing, although I hadn't gotten around to looking into it in depth
[17:07] <trevorman> nemo: yeah but what exactly about the SDHCI controller? you'd probably need broadcom to sign off on it.
[17:07] <blkhawk> oldman: i see no setting to force composite
[17:07] <shirro> nemo: the slow sd card thing is still a hack. It will be interesting to see some response to it from the broadcom people
[17:07] <trevorman> the whole init_emmc_clock thing is specific to the bootloader and nothing to do with debian
[17:07] <nemo> shirro: well. now I'm curious that if I disable that hack, what speeds will I get

[17:09] <freezer> is the Pi's SD card interface SDHC?
[17:09] <gordonDrogon_> there are some other ones: #sdtv_mode=2
[17:09] <gordonDrogon_> #sdtv_aspect=1
[17:09] <gordonDrogon_> but I don't know if they actually force the compost video output. mode 2 is UK.
[17:10] <shirro> oldman: if hdmi is unplugged at boot it is supposed to default to composite output I thought
[17:10] <trevorman> freezer: yes. it supports SD and SDHC. not 100% sure about SDXC. somebody claims to have used a 64GB card on one.
[17:10] <trevorman> what shirro said
[17:10] <blkhawk> shirro: i thought that too
[17:10] <plugwash> AIUI the only difference between HC and XC is the standard formatting
[17:10] <blkhawk> oldman: is the tv pal or ntsc?
[17:10] <trevorman> freezer: I tried a RSMMC and it doesn't like it. the SoC documentation says it should be fine with MMC, SD and SDHC.
[17:10] <gordonDrogon_> never twice same coloUr :)
[17:10] <plugwash> but since embedded linux devices don't use the standard formatting that doesn't matter to us
[17:10] <freezer> trevorman, okay nice to have it confirmed. I saw something about SDHC in dmesg but wasn't sure if it's sd card info or controller speed
[17:10] <oldman> OK Thanks all. It looks as though there is aproblem with my connections.

[17:14] <trevorman> freezer: hopefully it'll improve. blkhawk has a hack where it boosts it to ~12MB/s. zgreg has some patches as well which in theory should be the correct way of doing things but its got some odd compatibility problems.

[17:45] <gordonDrogon_> nemo well - just the moving bit ought to be fine - you can remote into the lappy to fix it up,,,
[17:45] <nemo> gordonDrogon_: oh. true! I think I do have ssh running on that laptop
[17:45] <nemo> let's see
[17:46] <nemo> yay
[17:46] <nemo> hm.
[17:46] <nemo> well.
[17:46] <shirro> nemo: I think the driver needs a lot of optimisation and the clock thing is just brute forcing things. It only gets us so far and the rest will have to come from a better driver. Not sure what the hardware limits are though. My other arm SoC manages 15MB/s on two sd card interfaces and can do sata and usb and ethernet without falling in a heap but it costs a bit more.
[17:47] <nemo> shirro: so. you think 240Mhz is already abusing the HW? It isn't just that too low a freq was set to start with?
[17:48] <Vilkku> can I ask for some raspbmc help here as well or is there some other channel for that? my problem is that on the "installing root filesystem" screen I get loads of "error -110 sending stop command, original cmd response 0x900, card status 0x900"
[17:48] <Vilkku> followed by "mmc0: final write to SD card still running"
[17:48] <Vilkku> and
[17:48] <gordonDrogon_> My suspicions are that the driver is "good enough" for a little set top box, then we come along an expect the earth out of it and it's never really been tested/optimised by the folks at Broadcom at all...
[17:49] <Vilkku> "mmc0: Timeout waiting for hardware interrupt - cmd12."
[17:49] <blkhawk> some intern probably wrote it as a first project
[17:49] <gordonDrogon_> there was mention of some chap in Taiwan on th forums I think.
[17:49] <gordonDrogon_> Vilkku, sounds like your having SD card problems...
[17:50] <shirro> nemo: it might be too low a freq but I think there is more to increasing that freq to get higher performance. I think the freq will not get anyone to more than 3x
[17:50] <gordonDrogon_> and I'm having file copy problems, but not on a Pi - rsync copying a 350GB partition on one server to another and it's not going very fast )-:
[17:50] <Vilkku> gordonDrogon_, it does indeed :P this one was on the "supported" list though
[17:51] <shirro> nothing exposes hardware or driver issues like rsync

[17:51] <Matt> morning SPO
[17:52] <reider59> my good one failed earlier. closer inspection though shows a chunk out of the plastic, so something happened to it somewhere along the line. Good job I had a spare, even if half the size
[17:52] <neofutur> gordonDrogon_: you already know dd netcat bzip2 ? http://www.cyberciti.biz/tips/howto-copy-compressed-drive-image-over-network.html
[17:52] <neofutur> can be faster than rsync ;)
[17:52] <gordonDrogon_> neofutur, yea. but rsync is convenient.
[17:52] <nid0> you can just use compressed rsync
[17:53] <gordonDrogon_> lots and lots of small files here though which isn't helping.
[17:53] <Anppa> tar cz . | ssh me@box 'cat >dump.tgz'
[18:00] <gordonDrogon_> as alwas there's 1001 ways to do something...
[18:01] <nemo> shirro: I'm kinda puzzled actually. I guess I don't understand the underlying HW... http://www.sandisk.com/Assets/File/OEM/Manuals/SD_SDIO_specsv1.pdf lists clock range of 0-25MHz
[18:01] <gordonDrogon_> normally I'd not be woried, but I cocked up the fstab so when I rebooted one server it didn't way hello to me agin, so I'm on-site, otherwise I'd be in the comfort of home.
[18:01] <nemo> I guess that is something different
[18:01] <nemo> also mentions various transfer modes
[18:01] <nid0> ip kvm's are your friend :P
[18:01] <gordonDrogon_> maybe there's a clock limitation on the Pi. Who knows what routing a 25MHz signal is going to do...
[18:01] <Matt> rsync over it's own native protocol is also quite a bit faster than rsync over ssh
[18:01] <gordonDrogon_> nid0, yes they are, but this client doesn't have any )-:
[18:01] * Turingi (~devon@unaffiliated/devon-hillard/x-7250961) Quit (Read error: Operation timed out)
[18:01] <shirro> That clock would be divided and it might be that it is capped and the number is used by something else in the source to set soem other timing. I don't think it has been investigated fully

[18:08] <nid0> oh never mind i'm reading that wrong, badly worded table
[18:08] <gordonDrogon_> maybe not the same ram, etc.

[18:57] <Vilkku> so, I got a problem which I'm afraid I might know the answer to already but I just want to put it out there:
[18:57] * kodaws (~koda@host42-8-static.81-94-b.business.telecomitalia.it) Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[18:57] <Vilkku> I got a keyboard/tocuhpad combo, not the logitech one, not listed in the wiki. keyboard works great but the cursor doesn't want to move properly in the vertical axis
[18:58] <Vilkku> not properly as in it attempts to move but it jumps back down. so it reponds to input
[18:58] <Vilkku> horizontal movement is fine
[18:58] <Vilkku> for a short moment I did manage to get it working properly. but no idea what I did
[18:58] <Vilkku> is this just device incompatibility, or could there be something I could do to fix it?
[19:00] <teKuru> if it worked for a little bit there is hope
[19:00] <IT_Sean> could be a driver issue
[19:00] * Syliss (~Syliss@adsl-108-198-101-145.dsl.chi2ca.sbcglobal.net) Quit (Quit: Syliss)
[19:01] <Trickierstinky> anyone know where best to buy gpio cable from
[19:01] <IT_Sean> A standard floppy cable will do, Trickierstinky
[19:01] <IT_Sean> there really isn't a "GPIO" cable, though. Any cable that matches the # of pins and pitch will work.
[19:02] <Trickierstinky> ahh right so could i use a ide cable
[19:02] <teKuru> you can strip one side of the floppy cable and put ferrules on the individual cables to make a breakout cable too
[19:02] * kripton is now known as Kripton
[19:02] <teKuru> or even the individual m-f jumper cables work
[19:02] <teKuru> just has to be conductive :D
[19:03] <Vilkku> IT_Sean / teKuru, if it's a driver issue, what could be done to fix it? there aren't any official drivers for this keyboard that I'm aware of even for windows, and I doubt there is any communnity behind it either :P
[19:03] <Vilkku> think it could be a power problem? I had it directly plugged in into the pi
[19:03] <Vilkku> though the jittering it does doesn't seem like a power issue to me
[19:04] <teKuru> can you link to the individual keyboard youre using?
[19:04] <teKuru> it just identifies itself as a USB HID device?
[19:05] <Vilkku> I turned off the pi now and unplugged the cables, but I can check in windows if that makes any difference?
[19:05] <IT_Sean> Trickierstinky: an IDE cable usually has one of the pins blocked off, so, that won't work
[19:05] <teKuru> of course, you should always have a control
[19:05] <IT_Sean> but a floppy cable will
[19:05] <teKuru> if you don't know if it works in windows, there is no sense in tracking down an issue with an unknown platform
[19:06] <Vilkku> well, it does work in windows :) let me check what it says

[19:07] <Trickierstinky> the ide cable I have has no blanking plate on the pin so i may risk it :D but thanks for the help
[19:07] <Vilkku> teKuru, indeed, using the power of elimination I can determine that indeed only lists itself as "HID Keyboard Device"
[19:07] <Vilkku> and "HID-compliant mouse"
[19:08] <teKuru> one would think that would eliminate driver issues, for basic functionality of the devices at least
[19:08] <dmsuse> anyone done any work on getting an ipad screen working with the pi yet?
[19:08] <teKuru> chances of that being something reproducible even happening at all are slim dmsuse
[19:09] <teKuru> its not like tosn of people have ipad screens just laying around :D
[19:09] <Vilkku> I might boot into my debian squeeze card and see if I can find any more info later tonight
[19:09] <gmjhowe> I want to see driver for the USB powered/USB signal screens.
[19:09] <Vilkku> otherwise I'll just go and trade this one in for the logitech K400, as it seems to be working pretty okay from what I have heard
[19:10] <teKuru> yeah displaylink support would be nice, though I thought there has been work on archlinux arm for displaylink devices
[19:10] <teKuru> not sure
[19:11] <gmjhowe> Yeah, there are linux drivers.
[19:11] <gmjhowe> I don't know enough about linux to actually give it a go.
[19:11] <teKuru> I don't have a displaylink adapter hah
[19:11] <teKuru> been eying them but coudl never device between an adapter or a wholly contained adapter+lcd+touch
[19:11] <gmjhowe> I have one of the little 7" screens.
[19:12] <gmjhowe> would make for a very nice tiny laptop
[19:13] <gmjhowe> As well as a small head for a server
[19:13] <gmjhowe> Seems silly to use a Pi as a server only to need a massive screen for the head.
[19:13] <hotwings> why?
[19:13] * gordonDrogon is here now.
[19:14] <gmjhowe> Well because using one as a server is one of the few times the tiny size works to its advantage

[19:24] <the_cuckoo> yeah - need to be a bit clever with some internal wiring i think - makes the case a bit bigger, but should be doable

[19:33] <gmjhowe> So, the belking up works nicely because it has 5 external ports, including the power, then you have can have two ports on the inside, one to power the Pi.
[19:33] <gmjhowe> The only cable you have to route back inside a case would be the signal cable.
[19:33] <ReggieUK> gmjhowe, http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/4-PORT-HIGH-SPEED-USB-2-0-MULTI-HUB-EXPANSION-SPLITTER-/270613784739?pt=UK_Computing_USB_Cables&hash=item3f01d6a8a3

[19:33] <ReggieUK> about 1" square
[19:34] <ReggieUK> they're not powered
[19:34] <gmjhowe> Yeah, half the reason for adding a hub is for power.
[19:34] <ReggieUK> but the circuit is so simple, you could easily see how to externally power it
[19:34] <ReggieUK> the chips in those hubs are the same ones they use in the 7port/2amp cheap ebay hubs

[19:46] <skryking> gmjhowe, is that lego hub powered? I see the miniusb on the side of it.
[19:46] <Vilkku> so, yeah, mentioning accelerated driver, what is the state of the hardware and drivers for the pi? I saw someone say that the current ones are pretty terrible. will there be considerable improbements available for the boards that have been released so far, or will it only be for future ones with improved/updated hardware?
[19:47] <gmjhowe> skryking, oh yeah, good spot.
[19:47] <gmjhowe> Shame
[19:48] <bootc> weasel: no I just found that myself, care to post your tidied up tree somewhere so I can take a gander?
[19:48] <skryking> gmjhowe, I don't see any mention of being able to externally power it...but that port has me interested... I'm hunting for a cheap way to hang a wifi dongle off of my pi
[19:49] <weasel> bootc: sure. tho no guarantees. I just made it compile and it boots.

[19:51] <gmjhowe> I assume the Pi does not have enough power to run it direct?
[19:51] <skryking> not unless you are really really close to the transmitter...
[19:52] <Owner> im gonna buy one of these when there is an accelerated driver
[19:52] <daxroc> accelerated driver?
[19:52] <Owner> video card
[19:53] <gmjhowe> How about you come back when thats the case?
[19:53] <gmjhowe> Instead of repeating the same thing over and over?
[19:53] <Owner> im waiting
[19:53] <daxroc> Can think of 100s of headless projects
[19:53] <gmjhowe> skryking, what we need is a nice compact tidy 2 or 4 port usb hub.
[19:54] <gmjhowe> Someone should make one thats business card sized so it stacks directly.
[19:54] <daxroc> gmjhowe: and open / cc the design
[19:55] <skryking> I'm hunting for a 4port usb hub with built in rechargable batteries so that I can power the pi from it and put a wifi dongle in it..
[19:55] <gmjhowe> Yeah.
[19:55] <gmjhowe> What would be nice is a special connector that plugs into the lower USB port, but only extends beyond several mm.

[19:59] <daxroc> nice small form factor 4 port usb hub with optional battery pack
[19:59] <gmjhowe> Cheap enough that its not a massive waist if you ruin one. However at the moment they are gold dust.
[19:59] <daxroc> Would definitly be doalbe but would probably cost more than the pi
[20:00] <skryking> most peripherals are more than the pi :)
[20:00] <nid0> hurm, someone/thing broke my pi :(
[20:01] <gmjhowe> Ack, and here we are talking about doing that on purpose, how insensitive
[20:01] <gmjhowe> What have you done to it nid0?
[20:02] <daxroc> gmjhowe: so a 2Amp ps would be required doing it right ?
[20:02] * djazz (~daniel@78-72-41-104-no186.tbcn.telia.com) has left #raspberrypi
[20:03] <nid0> not sure, i've been running an iscsi root with no sd card inserted the past couple of days making sure its stable, lost network connection about half an hour ago, on reboot its booting as far as networking then timing out bringing up eth0, then.... not really doing a lot after that
[20:03] <daxroc> well 3.5 doing it right with ability to power the pi too
[20:03] <nid0> gonna switch it back to a local root though, see if its something to do with the iscsi initrd
[20:05] <gmjhowe> Ah software issue, not that you snapped a port off.
[20:05] <daxroc> 700 + 120 x 2 + 4 x 500 = 2940mA so 3.1 would probably work

[21:07] <nemo> hrm. but they are so tiny. could just tape to each display
[21:07] <nid0> nemo yeah I guess so, I have no real need for screens other than error checking though, so for me access to hdmi would be needed but not exactly priority number 1 for neatness/ease of use
[21:08] <nemo> so someone here mentioned a USB power supply w/ solar panel that charges during the day, and Pi draws off of at night
[21:08] <nid0> a stacked case that blocks gpio/audio/composite would be np though
[21:08] <nemo> does anyone here happen to know roughly what the specs for something like that would have to be if I googled around for existing chargers?

[21:09] <beardface_> gmjhowe: neat idea
[21:10] <nid0> nemo in theory https://powertraveller.com/iwantsome/primatepower/powermonkeyextreme/ is about exactly the kind of spec needed to run a pi 24/7, assuming constant full sunlight
[21:10] <nemo> hm
[21:10] <nemo> constant full sunlight is rarely guaranteed :)
[21:10] <nid0> obv you'd need something with a much bigger solar cell if you want to be able to run it all the time and account for clouds/night time

[21:12] <digger3> Hi, I'm trying to run a reasonably large java process on the rpi, but it locks up completely as soon as it allocates a fair chunk of memory. Is there a way to properly debug why it freezes (i.e. NIC doesn't respond anymore)
[21:12] <nemo> nid0: the Pi in moderate load would pull about that
[21:12] <nemo> nid0: so. you'd need at least double to store up power for the night

[21:13] <nid0> nemo exactly, as I said that panel provides about smack on what the pi draws (obv there is a battery for buffer) assuming the panel is getting constant sunlight
[21:13] <digger3> GabrialDestruir_: no, java isn't blem ;)

[21:14] <ReggieUK> I think it was about 280watts or there abouts to run a pi 24/7

[21:18] <nid0> nemo as a more practical solution, https://powertraveller.com/iwantsome/primatepower/solargorilla/ + https://powertraveller.com/iwantsome/primatepower/powergorilla/
[21:18] <SSilver2k2> depends, compiling may take it down for hours
[21:18] <GabrialDestruir_> strace it
[21:18] <nid0> would probably keep you going pretty much constantly
[21:18] <SSilver2k2> not going to try and run another shell while its compiling something big lol
[21:18] <GabrialDestruir_> More specifically strace -f it

[21:18] * Kripton is now known as kripton
[21:18] <SSilver2k2> im compiling a version of LOVE2D right now
[21:18] <digger3> GabrialDestruir_: probably not doable, the app is pretty hefty
[21:19] <nemo> nid0: wow. "may not work with some laptops over 40 watts directly"
[21:19] <nid0> nemo: thats a 21,000mAh battery (which should on its own run the pi for about 30 hours) plus a 10watt solar panel
[21:19] <nemo> nid0: so. even assuming a cloudy day and maybe only 20% of capacity...
[21:19] <GabrialDestruir_> Well strace should show you where it's going wrong, and in my experience keeps it from crashing all together.
[21:19] <nemo> nid0: you'd still be waaaaay over 6W or so which probably would be needed to power Pi and charge

[21:20] <GabrialDestruir_> If it exited badly that is.
[21:20] <nemo> Owner: and reliable
[21:21] <Owner> how long could you run an rpi off a potato?
[21:21] <GabrialDestruir_> More often than not I found that with strace -f running it wouldn't crash.
[21:21] <blkhawk> a small radio termal pile should run a raspberry for decades
[21:21] <nemo> nid0: 21000 mAh in 5V mode
[21:21] <GabrialDestruir_> The same amount of time you could run GladOS off a potato.
[21:21] <GabrialDestruir_> >.>
[21:21] <blkhawk> hehe
[21:21] <nid0> nemo yep, which is what the pi uses
[21:22] <GabrialDestruir_> Which I imagine in the real world wouldn't be very long....
[21:22] <Owner> what about a bagdad battery, and which is more efficient, cat, dog, goat, or human feces
[21:22] <nemo> nid0: yeah, actually, that would last for like 24h under stead load for the Pi
[21:22] <nemo> nid0: enough to survive a night or even a few stormy days
[21:22] <nemo> nice
[21:23] <nid0> it should actually be more, 30 hours assumes a full 700w draw - if you dont have usb devices plugged in, youll get longer
[21:23] <nid0> 700mA*
[21:24] <nemo> nid0: I was just imagining a self-contained Pi station. But, yeah, I'd almost certainly want USB devices plugged in
[21:24] <blkhawk> 700w would be a lot

[21:24] <nemo> blkhawk: well, this particular battery is apparently 75WH - soooo over a 12h night, that'd mean I could draw as much as 6W sustained right?
[21:24] <nemo> then in the day, sun comes out, battery recharges
[21:25] <blkhawk> well
[21:25] <blkhawk> you should keep in mind winter and that lipo does not like cold temps
[21:25] <GabrialDestruir_> On the other hand, apparently a potato only has between 1 and 1.5 volts of electricity... So I imagine it won't power the pi at all :p
[21:25] <blkhawk> if its a non-portable installation a small motocrycle lead acid battery would be much better
[21:27] <blkhawk> but to make it truely winterproof you need a way to cler off the solar panel
[21:28] <GabrialDestruir_> We should genetically modify potatoes to be eddible, but to also have enough energy to power a household for a day >.>
[21:28] <blkhawk> eddible might be hard to do

[21:30] <DDave> eduard khil (mr trolololo) is dead
[21:30] <IT_Sean> Where i live, the town's solar panels are mounted at a 45 degree angle, and still collect a LOT of snow in the winter.

[21:30] <blkhawk> ue the panel as alid
[21:31] <blkhawk> and mount it at an angle? yes that might be enough

[21:31] <IT_Sean> fair 'nuff
[21:31] <nemo> IT_Sean: but still. I expect I'd only have to clear it a few times per winter :)
[21:31] <blkhawk> snow on top of the panel will insulate the layer nearest to the panel
[21:31] <nemo> IT_Sean: it could even phone home if it needed the panel cleaned :)

[21:34] <blkhawk> 20usd or so
[21:34] <ReggieUK> for iphone etc.
[21:34] <jaxdahl2> rather, 4.75V is in spec for the USB 5v output
[21:34] <nemo> blkhawk: ah. that's not too bad
[21:34] <jaxdahl2> i don't know about the board
[21:34] <ReggieUK> drops to 4.5v
[21:34] <ReggieUK> if I plug the powered hub in
[21:34] <ReggieUK> I've got a cigar lighter 12v to 5v adapter that does significantly better
[21:35] <IT_Sean> what if you cut the power lines, leaving only data, between the USB port on the Pi and the Hub?
[21:35] <ReggieUK> either way plugging in a powered hub shouldn't drop the voltage should it?
[21:35] <teKuru> unless its one of them fake powered hubs
[21:35] <IT_Sean> no, it shouldn't. You've got electrons leaking somewhere.

[21:55] <Gadgetoid_Air> I'm still using SKPang's breadboard-area "case".... again no port reinforcement, and I haven't even stuck the breadboard now... but it's red, which is nice
[21:55] <nemo> Gadgetoid_Air: or even "a drink please" - I guess it just implies the captain is a bit of a detail freak
[21:55] <nemo> Gadgetoid_Air: just like the compulsive pulling on edge of his uniform
[21:55] <Gadgetoid_Air> nemo: True, that... on both counts
[21:56] <nemo> Gadgetoid_Air: or maybe he's actually a boozer and sometimes on his own he orders a long island ice tea :)
[21:56] <nemo> so he doesn't want the machine to reveal his secret by accident
[21:56] <Gadgetoid_Air> nemo I imagine I'd have that problem... asking for a drink and getting a curry milkshake
[21:57] <ReggieUK> the wooden case here (3rd image down) looks like an interesting idea

[22:07] <nemo> SpeedEvil: http://www.nrel.gov/gis/solar.html looks like we'd be about a "3" in January
[22:07] <nemo> hm. maybe 3.5-4 actually
[22:07] <nemo> let's say 3.5
[22:08] <nemo> SpeedEvil: your pricing there is a bit less expensive than the "solar gorilla" stuff actually. although presumably not as nice a form factor. but that's not really that important
[22:08] <SpeedEvil> nemo: The fun part is that you really want to answer the question 'what is the darkest week of the year.
[22:08] <SpeedEvil> Which most places don't.
[22:09] <SpeedEvil> The form factor is basically a massive solar panel a really fat person can hide behind and not have to crouch down
[22:09] <SpeedEvil> Think more 'door' and less 'suitcase'
[22:09] <nemo> ouch
[22:10] <SpeedEvil> Which most places don't = which most data sources don't.
[22:11] <SpeedEvil> If three weeks of january are nicely sunny - and one week has almost no sun, for example.
[22:11] <SpeedEvil> The average may be high - but that doesn't help you.
[22:11] <nemo> hm.

[22:15] <blkhawk> ya they should not have bought all that expensive stuff from us :P
[22:15] <ReggieUK> feeble attacks are probably enough to defeat the euro though to be fair
[22:15] <blkhawk> and kept out economy running
[22:15] <nemo> blkhawk: Mish lays 2:1 odds on Syriza winning
[22:15] <Gadgetoid_Air> We already have a perfectly suitable global currency to go with our perfectly suitable global language: kl... no wait, English

[22:15] <Gadgetoid_Air> No wait... English is a language not a currency, and an illogical one at that, nevermind!

[22:43] <OneFix_Work> Anyone been able to successfully get a USB connected RealTek 8192cu working with Debian on the rPi?
[22:43] <Owner> whats wrong with funding your alcoholism?
[22:43] <daxroc> Gadgetoid_Air: lol, that and the 24/7 phone calls
[22:43] <digger3> basically I'm getting lots of 'scheduling while atomic' errors with the rpi with the most recent kernel (3.2.18-rpi1+)
[22:43] <Gadgetoid_Air> daxroc: mysql dba?
[22:43] <daxroc> yeah
[22:43] <Gadgetoid_Air> Oh god, the on-call, no, nope NO!!!
[22:44] <SpeedEvil> digger3: In principle, you could firstly try an old kernel.
[22:44] <SpeedEvil> digger3: And see if it does it
[22:44] <SpeedEvil> digger3: If it doesn't - then you follow:
[22:44] <mythos> 8192cu... *brrr.... i hate that chip
[22:44] <nid0> OneFix_Work: yep, there're a lot of guides and compiled modules around to get it working
[22:44] <Gadgetoid_Air> Your day gets put on hold because a DTS package is failing, and you look at it to find it has funky SQL that updates hundreds of thousands of rows with individual update statements Arrghhh
[22:44] <digger3> SpeedEvil: are there guidelines as what it is considered the latest stable for rpi?

[22:57] <Gadgetoid_Air> digger3: I've heard the same of overclocking, evidently I'm really not loading it high enough
[22:57] <SpeedEvil> Ideally you'd find someone to verify your problem - running the same sw
[22:57] <Gadgetoid_Air> Compile all the things!!!
[22:57] <digger3> oh and the app is heavily threaded, so in a sense lots of concurrent processes
[22:57] <Owner> prime95
[22:58] <Gadgetoid_Air> I'd be happy to try a high load to lock up my Pi and replicate your problem, otherwise I'm going to start obsessing over uptime :D

[22:59] <gmjhowe> ebuyer had 32gb microSD cards like the week before my SD card arrived.
[22:59] <digger3> aka actually building a freedom box ;), instead of all those crappy nonsense kickstarter shitty projects
[22:59] <Gadgetoid_Air> gmjhowe: would be even greater if my Pi weren't so fussy I have to reinsert the card 4 times to get it to work again
