[0:00] <friggle> lennard: wheezy has newer packages, is freezing soon. It makes sense I think to push it as the primary platform
[0:00] <lennard> wouldnt be my choice I think, but I suppose it cant hurt much either
[0:01] <lennard> especially if it freezes soon, havent kept track
[0:02] <cehteh> at this stage its prolly ok ... but for long term future i wont base official images on a not released distrbution

[0:09] <Moofie> friggle, since omxplayer is included, does it black out the background when playing a video? I'm guessing that this is an omxplayer issue but it would be nice if it would be updated to draw a black background if the black bars are not part of the movie
[0:09] * romaxa_ (~romaxa@c-98-234-252-192.hsd1.ca.comcast.net) Quit (Ping timeout: 245 seconds)
[0:10] <friggle> Moofie: no it won't. The right solution is probably a wrapper script that blanks the framebuffer before launchying omxplayer
[0:10] <Moofie> friggle: talking about that new debian image btw
[0:10] <Moofie> would that also work if X is running?
[0:10] <friggle> can anyone jump on the torrent? I'm still seeing no peers http://asbradbury.org/tmp/raspi/2012_06_10_spindle_wheezy_public_alpha.img.gz.torrent

[0:10] <friggle> Moofie: I suspect so, but haven't tried
[0:10] <lennard> friggle: I should be seeding
[0:11] <friggle> lennard: well, this is an image we're pushing to desktop users. I'll get my build scripts to make a minimal squeeze too for those who want the perceived stability
[0:12] <Moofie> downloading with uTorrent
[0:12] <Moofie> 700'ish kB/s
[0:12] <friggle> Moofie: ok great, I see you downloading. If lennard is seeding too sounds like we're sorted
[0:12] <lennard> I don't see any peers though
[0:13] <Moofie> I see 1 peer
[0:13] <lennard> Moofie: is it something 130.89.*-ey?
[0:13] <Moofie> li60-24.members.linode.com
[0:13] <friggle> that would be me

[0:17] <lennard> there then. added an rtorrent in the mix as well
[0:17] <lennard> cant go wrong :P
[0:17] <lennard> still no peers though
[0:18] <D-side> wait what's this?
[0:18] <D-side> need help testing a torrent, or seeding one?

[0:18] <cehteh> uhm need a 100mbit seed server? :)
[0:18] <lennard> pfft
[0:18] <lennard> thats nothing! :P
[0:18] <lennard> <-- gbit seeding from the home
[0:18] <D-side> i may be able to do gigabit

[0:19] <D-side> good let that guy do it then :D
[0:19] <Moofie> download complete, some nice uploading there :)
[0:19] <lennard> we *should* be good its just I cant be sure its working as I see no peers
[0:19] <lennard> but maybe there just isnt any need for them
[0:19] <lennard> oh wait
[0:19] <lennard> peers!
[0:19] <lennard> slow ones, too
[0:20] <Moofie> someone in sweden downloading?

[0:24] <lennard> throwing 10G at is might be overdoing it a bit, right?
[0:24] <lennard> it*
[0:24] <cehteh> the point of bt is distribution not centralization :)
[0:25] <lennard> true :P
[0:25] <lennard> but thats just because the rest of the world doesn't have proper connections yet ;)

[0:44] <neofutur> ( http://r.pi.gw.gd/ )
[0:45] <ReggieUK> given the amount of traffic on the site, I Think it's a good idea that the editign is limited
[0:45] <ReggieUK> if you really need to edit stuff, just add another post to the thread :D

[0:51] <ntwrk_keith> good question, i wondered the same thing when connected via HDMI
[0:52] <neofutur> tvservice -s says 720*480 60 htz interlaced
[0:52] <ReggieUK> then again, if you want something editable, where you can keep all of the sensible information, there's always the wiki
[0:53] <neofutur> tvservice -m gives 0 modes
[0:54] <neofutur> ReggieUK: (or go away and put your info somewhere else :p )
[0:54] <ntwrk_keith> i didnt even no of that command :)
[0:54] <ntwrk_keith> im a linux newb
[0:54] <neofutur> ntwrk_keith: with hdmi is easy to setup the display :
[0:54] <neofutur> http://elinux.org/RPi_config.txt#Video_mode_configuration
[0:54] <ntwrk_keith> i just plugged in and it worked
[0:54] <ntwrk_keith> jsut couldnt change res
[0:54] <neofutur> but with RCa adaptors on a old TV it semms impossible
[0:56] <friggle> well, I've found a solution to the editing problem ;)

[1:02] <gordonDrogon> right. after a lot of faffing about, I can now boot code into an ATmega 168/328 directly over the serial port on my Pi.
[1:02] <locojay1> but it says failed to playback check log file. where's the log file /var/log/?
[1:02] <gordonDrogon> The ATmega running at 12MHz @ 3.3v.
[1:03] <ReggieUK> gordonDrogon, congratz
[1:03] <ReggieUK> how did you end up implementing it? like you mentioned earlier?
[1:03] * SSilver2k2 (~Adium@50-89-241-213.res.bhn.net) has left #raspberrypi
[1:04] <gordonDrogon> yes. using a gpio pin to reset the ATmega and working out the right lock & fuse bit settings on the AVR chip to run at 12MHz with the ceramic oscilator thingy.
[1:04] * Meatballs is now known as Meatballs|Away
[1:04] <ReggieUK> I hate fuses on atmega
[1:04] <gordonDrogon> it's not stable at 115200 baud though - I might have a look at the boot loader code, but it's a mess - looks like it just gets hacked about by someone random every time adrunio releases a new chip
[1:05] <ReggieUK> look for the atmega baudrate calculator
[1:05] <ReggieUK> check and see whether teh clock you're running the atmega is stable enough for 115200
[1:05] <gordonDrogon> yea, tomorow :)
[1:05] <gordonDrogon> I don't think the bootloader I'm using uses the double-rate mode.

[1:06] <gordonDrogon> my own code uses it, and once it's booted my own code, it works fine at 115000 ... but it's telling that the bootloader code only runs at 57600 on the 2009 arduinos.

[1:07] <ReggieUK> http://www.wormfood.net/avrbaudcalc.php?postbitrate=115200&postclock=12
[1:07] <ReggieUK> scroll down to 12Mhz
[1:07] <ReggieUK> 115200 @ 12mhz gives quite a large % of error
[1:08] * ShiftPlusOne (~shift@unaffiliated/shiftplusone) Quit (Ping timeout: 260 seconds)
[1:08] <gordonDrogon> yes, 7.5% according to that chart.
[1:08] <ReggieUK> and give that you're using an oscillator rather than a xtal you may well be introducing extra error on top
[1:08] <gordonDrogon> indeed.
[1:08] <ReggieUK> +>2% is usually what they describe as good enough
[1:09] <ReggieUK> sorry, that should be <=2%

[1:09] <neofutur> anyone have a /etc/fb.modes file with the modes available for the raspberry pi display ?
[1:09] <ReggieUK> and the clock speed will wander with temp wiht the oscillator too won't it?
[1:09] <gordonDrogon> Hm. He's not showing the 2nd control byes.
[1:10] <gordonDrogon> probably. I don't know much about these ceraminc things othe than that they're cheap & easy with the serial caps. built in!
[1:10] <amelia_> friggle: seeding now ^^
[1:10] <gordonDrogon> just one blob package with 2 pins - plug in & go!
[1:12] <gordonDrogon> not sure what will happen if some numpty configures the gpio port as output and drives it high...
[1:12] <ReggieUK> http://www.b9.com//elect/avr/kavrcalc/
[1:13] <locojay1> Playlist Player: skipping unplayable item
[1:13] <ReggieUK> the first one I posted, he does mention that the calculator was built when there was only the one register for ubrr
[1:13] <ReggieUK> but the math still holds true
[1:14] <gordonDrogon> ReggieUK, that avrcalc crashes on my Linux PC!
[1:14] <gordonDrogon> still, no real issue for now.
[1:14] <locojay1> am i not able to play avi files?
[1:14] <gordonDrogon> it works at 57600.
[1:15] <zgreg> alright, all my SD/MMC cards work great with the pi now, and with great performance
[1:15] <bsilvereagle> Other than a new kb, has anyone found a solution to sticky keys?
[1:15] <Decepshun> zgreg: what kind do you use?
[1:15] <zgreg> the only remaining issue is that the host is slow to recognize removal of that one ancient 16 MB (!) MMC card
[1:16] <zgreg> it takes about 10 seconds for the host to notice it's gone
[1:16] <friggle> zgreg: is this you? https://github.com/grigorig
[1:16] <Decepshun> zgreg: what kind do you use?
[1:16] <zgreg> friggle: yes
[1:16] <zgreg> Decepshun: of SD cards? all kinds :)
[1:17] <ReggieUK> does the sd card have a working detect pin?
[1:17] <friggle> great, we're getting Naren to review your changes
[1:17] <ReggieUK> socket*
[1:17] <locojay1> mmh seems like a samba problem on osx
[1:17] <zgreg> ReggieUK: no. :( it polls for card insertion and removal
[1:17] <Decepshun> zgreg: what class/speed?
[1:17] <zgreg> Decepshun: all of them :)
[1:17] <Decepshun> k
[1:17] <zgreg> no, really, I have a good selection of SD cards here to test compatibility
[1:18] <ReggieUK> so if it can poll whether the cards there, surely the dectect pin can be setup as an interrupt instead?
[1:18] <zgreg> I don't know if the detect pin is even connected
[1:18] <zgreg> probably not
[1:18] <ReggieUK> ahh, that's what I was getting at
[1:18] <zgreg> if it were, they'd have used it
[1:18] * Foxhoundz1 (~Fujitsu@adsl-75-63-124-233.dsl.rcsntx.sbcglobal.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:18] <ReggieUK> so it just queries the card directly to see if it's there?
[1:18] * PiBot sets mode +v Foxhoundz1
[1:18] <zgreg> more or less, yes
[1:19] <zgreg> it queries the SD status periodically, and if that fails it tries to find out what's going on
[1:19] * Foxhoundz (~Fujitsu@adsl-75-63-124-233.dsl.rcsntx.sbcglobal.net) Quit (Ping timeout: 245 seconds)
[1:19] <ReggieUK> zgreg, not sure how you think you can assert that statement with them using 80/20Mhz for clock generation in their sd code ;)
[1:19] <ReggieUK> the 'if it were, tehy'd have used it' statement
[1:19] <zgreg> well, maybe you're right
[1:20] <zgreg> the SD driver also copies from various fragments of other kernel code
[1:20] <gordonDrogon> bed time...
[1:20] <ReggieUK> 'gnight gordonDrogon
[1:20] <zgreg> but it's not just copy & paste, they added a few bugs on top of it (no kidding)
[1:21] <zgreg> the whole set_clock/get_timeout_clock/etc is not neede *at all*
[1:21] <ReggieUK> I think the code has just been written to work on a limited set of hardware
[1:21] <ReggieUK> zgreg, oh?
[1:21] <zgreg> the custom implementations do a worse job than the kernel's implementations
[1:21] <ReggieUK> I noticed that as well as the stuff they do, there was also code in a couple of other places that seemed to do the same thing
[1:22] <ReggieUK> so they've sidestepped the kernels effort and added their own layer of obfuscation in then?

[1:46] <ReggieUK> I guess it depends on the state of everything when I get my project together whether I directly need rts (would like to as that would make it hardware compatible with everyone else)

[2:06] <zgreg> it's funny how removing so much code solves most problems
[2:07] <ReggieUK> indeed!
[2:08] <ReggieUK> that's quite a lot of culling
[2:08] <ReggieUK> so does that put max speed as to whatever emmc_clock_freq is now set to?
[2:09] <ReggieUK> or rather what it's defined as initially
[2:10] <zgreg> yes
[2:10] <zgreg> but that's fine, the MMC/SDHCI subsystem will make sure to stay within SD limits

[2:13] <rasp7aa> so a mainstream release is coming soon?
[2:13] <zgreg> I think more testing is required
[2:13] <zgreg> I'll try to get as many SD cards as possible from friends/colleagues/etc and test them
[2:16] <ReggieUK> what's teh max speed you've hit so far zgreg?
[2:16] <zgreg> 19 MB/s
[2:17] <zgreg> that's about the limit for SD high-speed
[2:17] <zgreg> really good cards might be able to get up to 20 MB/s

[2:19] <zgreg> SD high-speed's physical interface speed is 25 MB/s, but of course there's a bit of overhead, so typically you can get a little over 20 MB/s under best-case conditions
[2:20] <zgreg> I think 20 MB/s is perfectly fine, there's really no need to overclock the SD interface
[2:21] <zgreg> you can definitely feel the difference between 4.5 MB/s and 20 MB/s, but if you get 2-3 MB/s more doesn't really matter anymore at this point
[2:21] <Aterlatus> Is your patch used on top of the ones that were linked on the forum, or instead of? Was planning on doing a compile tonight...
[2:22] <zgreg> Aterlatus: on top of, I also posted those on the forums

[2:25] <zgreg> Aterlatus: if you adjust BCM2708_EMMC_CLOCK_FREQ in drivers/mmc/host/sdhci-bcm2708.c you can also use other clock speeds
[2:25] <zgreg> the default clock of 80 MHz is not that useful unfortunately
[2:26] <zgreg> 80 MHz cannot be divided well into 25/50 MHz, which are the most important speeds for SD :)

[2:41] <neofutur> still much work to be done
[2:43] <rasp7aa> Decepshun: I'd assume, if you weren't supposed to apt-get then the dev would just change the repo urls to junk

[3:50] <Arch-Raspberrypi> GabrialDestruir: i cant see that being any different than the dockstar which only has vents on the side and its doing the same thing
[3:50] <Decepshun> I was just at the lego store yesterday and I forgot about buying pieces to make my own case for the heck of it
[3:50] <Arch-Raspberrypi> and the dockstar is more powerfull but less memory
[3:51] <Decepshun> has there been a wireless home entertainment keyboard/mouse know to work well with the rpi and not a huge drain on the USB bus?

[3:56] <Decepshun> I did hear that

[3:58] <Aterlatus> Take my word for it gents - writing to an SD card over an NFS mount will give you a newfound respect for the unpatched rpi SD access speed...
[3:58] <GabrialDestruir> I think I'd want a trackpad, because I have a tendency to bury my keyboards sometimes and it'd be a pain to have the trackball going all willy nilly xD
[3:58] <Arch-Raspberrypi> trackball doesnt come out
[3:59] <Decepshun> Aterlatus: I still cant figure out how to get NFS to work for me :(
[3:59] <Decepshun> I am not that savvy with it
[3:59] <GabrialDestruir> But things can move it, where as usually you won't have something sliding across your trackpad that can interact with it
[3:59] <Decepshun> everytime I try to mount a NFS drive, it says it can't find it
[4:00] <Arch-Raspberrypi> GabrialDestruir: unless you purposly put something on top of it...well then thats the fault of the user
[4:00] <Aterlatus> Include relevant bits in kernel, install userspace tools, create the /etc/exports file - works well once it's up. Just real damn slow when I'm writing to the SD. lol

[4:03] <Aterlatus> On the machine you're trying to access files on, what distro are you using?
[4:04] <Decepshun> there is no distro...it's on a drobo...you can run small drobo-apps on it...one of the apps is a NFS app called UNFSD
[4:04] <Aterlatus> Ahh, it's a SAN.
[4:04] <Decepshun> yes
[4:05] <Decepshun> This is my export path /mnt/DroboFS/Shares/Movies 192.168.1.0/24 (rw,all_squash,insecure)

[4:05] <Aterlatus> I just made that cockup when I was setting mine up.
[4:05] <Aterlatus> Might be the cause of your problem, might not, but should be fixed either way. ;)

[4:38] <GabrialDestruir> Yay Amazon Videos works, now the only thing you can't do on the Pi yet is Netflix, but i don't have an account to test that xD
[4:38] <neofutur> zgreg: thnks for this mew kernel, seems great ;)
[4:40] <ReggieUK> if you want to create a file that's missing like that, you can just use touch
[4:40] <ReggieUK> like:
[4:40] <ReggieUK> touch /etc/fb.modes
[4:40] <ReggieUK> will create an empty file

[4:43] <Arch-Raspberrypi> who has nfs working on there Pi? and what distro are you using?
[4:44] <neofutur> Arch-Raspberrypi: try using FUSE/sshfs its great
[4:44] <zgreg> Arch-Raspberrypi: can't give you an answer to that, but you should compile your own kernel to get nfs support
[4:44] * neofutur stopped using nfs since he discovered sshfs
[4:44] <Arch-Raspberrypi> ok
[4:44] <zgreg> neofutur: no, it's slow (on the pi, at least) :)

[5:10] <Arch-Raspberrypi> yeah well i cant get samba to work which is why i thought id try the sshfs method
[5:10] <cehteh> thats for sure not simpler
[5:10] <Arch-Raspberrypi> i could easily just use winscp but this will keep me busy
[5:11] <cehteh> even a webdav server will be easier .. but sux

[5:11] <cehteh> then make it work

[6:48] <hotwings> urata - ive always installed linux without x :)
[6:48] <neofutur> yup i began sleeping with my pi last night
[6:48] <Aterlatus> I don't often sleep, but when I do, I leave a kernel compiling...
[6:48] <urata> oh cool. I am using a version of gentoo right now
[6:49] <urata> Sabayon9
[6:49] <neofutur> got it on the TV, i can switch from tv to dvd to Pi ;)
[6:49] <Fatal_eXception0> should hdmi work on archlinux image, first boot?
[6:49] <Fatal_eXception0> cause mine isn't :/
[6:49] <neofutur> should work but i use rca adaptor
[6:49] <Aterlatus> I had an issue with arch where the overscan was all wrong - edge of the screen cut off.
[6:49] <Aterlatus> But otherwise worked.
[6:49] <neofutur> had a hrd time getting fbset to work ( http://raspberry.pi.gw.gd/viewtopic.php?id=56&action=new )

[6:50] <neofutur> its like a dvd player
[6:50] <neofutur> you just ned the cables

[6:52] <neofutur> hdmi ones are more expensive
[6:52] <Aterlatus> Run it all off a car jumpstart pack - normally got a 10Ah or so battery in there.
[6:52] <Aterlatus> DVI will do though, with a converter.
[6:52] <neofutur> the link above is the best cheap one i found
[6:52] <Aterlatus> The HDMI and DVI signals are identical.

[6:59] <neofutur> seems rock solid !
[6:59] <Aterlatus> 9/9/8 on my six core doing this compile... lol
[6:59] <neofutur> thats on the pi ;)
[7:00] <neofutur> emerge -e world + a big git clone at the same time
[7:00] <Aterlatus> Certainly does seem to be holding the overclock well.
[7:00] <neofutur> yup
[7:00] <Aterlatus> Might have to give mine another clock once I've got gentoo on there. ;)
[7:00] <neofutur> + zram
[7:00] <neofutur> but right noew i dont have ir, have to rebuild modules with the new kernel
[7:01] <Aterlatus> I'm going to run the start.elf with the lower GPU RAM - not planning on doing much graphically with it so won't hurt to have some extra system ram.
[7:01] <rasp7aa> hmm, in the latest maker fair video eben says everyone at the fundation runs their pi overvolted

[7:02] <neofutur> is very stable
[7:02] <neofutur> i dont need to overvolt . . .
[7:02] <Aterlatus> As I said earlier, I ran that clock on raspbian the other day and it was crashing during boot.
[7:03] <Aterlatus> 900 arm_freq let it boot, but crashed as soon as I ran anything after logging in.
[7:03] <neofutur> varm_freq=930 gpu_freq=350 sdram_freq=500 very stable here for now ;)
[7:03] <neofutur> also perhaps you need a better adapter ?
[7:03] <rasp7aa> neofuter, you need to test it at long term full load aswell as idle
[7:04] <GabrialDestruir> I can't get gpu_freq to anything above default without it crashing.
[7:04] <Aterlatus> Could be - I'm running off the USB port on my TV atm.
[7:04] <Aterlatus> No idea what current it can source.
[7:05] <neofutur> got the one from RS
[7:05] <rasp7aa> Aterlatus: it should be spec usb
[7:05] <neofutur> rasp7aa: its planned for long term ;) emerge -e world should take at least 2 days ;)
[7:05] <neofutur> 2:11 hours for now
[7:05] <Aterlatus> Spec can be up to 1.7A though.
[7:06] <rasp7aa> Aterlatus: does your tv have vesa mounting holes?
[7:06] <Aterlatus> Not sure... not been behind it for some time now. :P
[7:06] <neofutur> yup , try to get a good adapter
[7:06] <neofutur> the one fron RS I use seem to have a good reputation
[7:07] <rasp7aa> Aterlatus: if it does, you might want to look into one of the cases with vesa compatiblity, then you'd be able to secure it behind
[7:07] <Aterlatus> I'm intending it to be portable in the long run - just plugged into the TV to set it up. Hoping one of these ( http://www.maplin.co.uk/portable-power-pack-225153 ) won't be limited to a 500mA USB socket because that's the long term plan.
[7:08] <Aterlatus> Given that it's stated as a "USB Charging" socket, it should be the full 1.7A. Guess I'll find out.

[7:20] <Aterlatus> It'd take quite a sizeable solar panel to run the pi directly, even in full sun. Make sure you've got a battery backup with charger in there too!

[7:25] <neofutur> why this solar pack would be stupid ?
[7:25] <tpresence> no
[7:25] <tpresence> the paste was stupid
[7:25] <tpresence> I meant to cut
[7:26] <tpresence> and I was middle buttoned
[7:26] <neofutur> ah ok
[7:26] <mjr> that solar pack might be stupid because it doesn't seem to have strict 5V output
[7:26] <neofutur> its probablynot perfect anyway, but i couldnt find better for now
[7:26] <neofutur> price/quality
[7:26] <neofutur> yes, will be 4.8 or 5.8
[7:26] <mjr> does 4.8 do for the pi?
[7:26] <neofutur> 4.8 should be ok
[7:26] <neofutur> at the limits
[7:27] <mjr> 5.8 sounds very high considering somebody said his didn't boot with 5.2V
[7:27] <neofutur> lso could i use it to power a usb hub powering the pi ?

[9:00] <Aterlatus> Easy way to transfer files from windows to pi too. Gotta remember that most pi users aren't going to be linux-savvy at first.,
[9:00] <steveccc> also does anyone else get poor network performance when copying files from the pi - I got terrible performance but it was over an sshfs link rather than ftp or samba
[9:00] <Arch1mede> steveccc: not but i have a 16 and seems to work fine
[9:01] <steveccc> rasp7aa: not a prob for me as my desktop is ubuntu and hence can just mount it - however appreciate what youa re saying

[9:01] <neofutur> sshfs can be slow
[9:01] <Aterlatus> I've had fairly crappy performance over sshfs and nfs, but that was writing to the SD card at the server end of things.

[9:31] <gordonDrogon> steveccc, Debian can be upgraded from version to version without deleting data...
[9:32] <steveccc> gordondrogon: I know you can update - I just meant if you decided to reinstall
[9:32] <gordonDrogon> steveccc, and rather than run the risk of a new release having a different partition table, I chose to merge the unused space into one bigger partition.
[9:33] <gordonDrogon> hopefully don't need to re-install, however I'm not sure the RPI Foundation have properly packaged the stuff under /opt though.
[9:33] <hotwings> i wonder how long it will take before someone makes their rpi control xmas lights synced to music
[9:33] <gordonDrogon> I suspect they might have been relying on the RH release initially, but as most people seem to be running Debian, who knows...

[9:34] <steveccc> gordondrogon: i would be nice to have a dialog I think to ask you questions on install ie do you want to use all the space or create a partition with the remaining data etc
[9:34] <gordonDrogon> steveccc, all that takes time to put together, and I sort of got the impression that they didn't have any )-:
[9:35] <gordonDrogon> and I've watched a complete newb. trying to do a Debian install the hard way - it's not nice!
[9:35] <steveccc> gordondrogon: oh i understand - I appreciate what they have done - not complaining more adding suggestions to increase updake
[9:35] <Arch1mede> gordonDrogon: in its current form its realy easy to get going
[9:35] <gordonDrogon> sadly, one of the stumbling blocks to Linux (IMO) is having to do your own install - when was the last time the average user did a Windows (re) install...
[9:36] <steveccc> i would also be up for a range of pi devices with increased memory and maybe a little more processor

[9:36] <Arch1mede> hotwings: it can but you still need to use the sd card as a bootloader
[9:36] <hotwings> YES gordonDrogon! +1 for a netinst
[9:37] <steveccc> adding wireless would be nice too but I guess its just increased cost, complication etc
[9:37] <mjr> I dunno. It does suck a bit but not really a huge deal especially if the sd performance is getting pretty fixed

[9:40] <gordonDrogon> I'd like to think that we'll see another Debian release as a whole card type install - based on Raspbian, with everything properly packaged, however that's currently a volunteer project, so who knows.
[9:41] <gordonDrogon> (ie. a release supported by the RPI Foundation)
[9:41] <gordonDrogon> I'm sure if they were to put up some money and time, then we might get a semi-paid volunteer to make that project work, however I really don't know what their own plans are.
[9:42] <gordonDrogon> Gadgetoid_mbp, 'morning - I have ATmega bootloader going at 12MHz and can boot the chip directly from the Pi via serial!
[9:42] <Gadgetoid_mbp> gordonDrogon: Oooo, nice!

[9:43] <Gadgetoid_mbp> gordonDrogon: probably my attempts to use it unsoldered, I've got another one on the way so I can resume tinkering this week
[9:44] <gordonDrogon> what was the breakout board? Not a breadboard then?
[9:45] <Arch1mede> hotwings: well i dont see what difference it makes...a boot is a boot
[9:45] <gordonDrogon> Arch1mede, boot boot boot :) The ROM inside the GPU can only boot off the SD card, nothing else.
[9:45] <Gadgetoid_mbp> A USB->Serial jobby, FT232RL
[9:45] <gordonDrogon> Ah, right.
[9:45] <gordonDrogon> so you were still usingthe USB and not the on-board Pi serial?
[9:46] <Gadgetoid_mbp> Haven't managed to use the PI's serial directly for uploading sketches, but I did some tests and know I can get messages to the chip
[9:46] <Gadgetoid_mbp> The Arduino software by default wont see ttyama0 as a usable serial port
[9:47] <gordonDrogon> Gadgetoid_mbp, yes, it's fine to the chip, although I found last night that the chip isn't good at 115200 baud for uploading.
[9:47] <gordonDrogon> I'll be looking at the Arduino IDE later today. I don't normally run it, so I've no idea how it's patched up to do a bootloader, etc.

[9:49] <gordonDrogon> ok. I'll give that a go then!
[9:49] <Gadgetoid_mbp> When I've got some more time, I'll have to swap back to the "official" kernel and see if I can get it to compile then
[9:49] <gordonDrogon> don't think it'll be fast though...
[9:49] <Gadgetoid_mbp> Yeah, sluggish but it works- I was even using it through x-forwarding
[9:49] <gordonDrogon> the IDE is all Java isn't it? What do you need to compile?
[9:50] <Gadgetoid_mbp> miscellaneous dev tools and ant
[9:50] <gordonDrogon> Hmm..
[9:51] <gordonDrogon> Maybe I'm glad I've just used Makefiles all my life :)
[9:51] <Gadgetoid_mbp> Probably for the best, the Arduino IDE is??? "clunky" to say the very least
[9:51] <gordonDrogon> installing it now :)
[9:51] <Gadgetoid_mbp> So you use avrdude directly?
[9:53] <steveccc> is the vnc server the most efficient way to get a remote desktop on the pi
[9:53] <gordonDrogon> yes. use the dude directly.
[9:55] <gordonDrogon> however doing it that way sort of doesn't allow for the standard arduino libraries directly, however I don't use them as I wrote my own.
[9:55] <gordonDrogon> so I have my own serial library, wiring library and so on.

[10:01] <stev> I want to use ntpdate to get time from internet, but my rpi(debian) already starts ntp daemon. How to remove it? Is deleting /etc/init.d/ntp the correct way?
[10:01] <gordonDrogon> I have a tiny real-time task scheduller too which is good for getting away from the "big loop" type of programming that the aduino seems to enjoy...
[10:02] <gordonDrogon> stev, why not just use ntp?
[10:02] <frankivo> stev: why not use the daemon?
[10:02] <stev> gordonDrogon: good question. I don't know how to use npt daemon. :)
[10:02] <gordonDrogon> however... sudo apt-get purge ntp ; sudo apt-get install ntpdate
[10:03] <gordonDrogon> you don't need to know how to use it - it starts automatically and sets the time within a minute of booting. (or less)
[10:03] <gordonDrogon> as long as it's connected to the 'net.
[10:03] <stev> gordonDrogon: I see. let me check it. Thanks.
[10:03] <gordonDrogon> if typing the 'date' command gives you the correct time, then it's working.
[10:04] <Arch1mede> stev: just make sure to set your tz
[10:04] <gordonDrogon> also try the command: ntpq -c rl
[10:05] <gordonDrogon> you'll get severa lines of output, but look for the line with 'stratum' in it - if it's 16, time isn't set, if anything less then you have the correct time

[10:31] <gordonDrogon> right now I want to use the suppled Debian squeze IDE (for various reasons) it seems to work, OK, just has the serial port greyed out )-:
[10:31] <Xark> Gadgetoid_mbp: I didn't need to compile it (It is java).
[10:31] <Gadgetoid_mbp> Xark: "build"? When I "ant build" it, it explodes
[10:32] <gordonDrogon> Xark, thanks. yes. I am an old-hand at AVR programming - mostly via the command line though - but I have a project now to get the standard Arduino IDE working over the Pi's on-board serial port.
[10:32] <Gadgetoid_mbp> Java is a sin, we should write a new Arduino IDE :D
[10:32] <Xark> Gadgetoid_mbp: I more or less followed the instructions on the page I just linked. However, with 1.0.1 the compiler comes with the IDE so there were a lot more arm replacements to do...
[10:32] <vvompy> could somebody help me with compiling the new driver?
[10:32] <neofutur> +1 java is a sin
[10:33] <gordonDrogon> I have a new Arduino IDE - it's called vi & Makefiles :)

[10:33] <xboxor> arch1mede: distcc? distributed c compiler
[10:33] <Gadgetoid_mbp> Xark: interesting, I've seen that page before but didn't bother with it, cos I'd just "apt get install'd the debian package version
[10:34] <xboxor> Arch1mede: it will offload the 'cc' processes to a remote machine or a list of remote machines. (a ARM build environment must be configured on the hosts though)
[10:34] <Arch1mede> xboxor: your youtube vid....xastir
[10:34] <Xark> gordonDrogon: Yeah. At least all the avr-* toolchain files work fine on RPi AFAICT. I suspect with the right avrdude line I could work sans IDE.

[11:06] <Arch1mede> stev: let me rephrase...why did you have to recompile your kernel?
[11:06] <vvompy> anyone out there understanding the error "8192cu: disagrees about version of symbol module_layout"?
[11:07] <gordonDrogon> stev, hm. ok. not an issue I've ever had, but I'm really not doing much in the GUI on my Pi - however I've run Debian on my desktop for 18 years now and not encountered that, but it's true to say I don't drive it like most people do...

[11:11] <Gadgetoid_pi> Well I bowed to the horror stories about AVR programming and bought a new fully featured breakout board to go with my basic one

[11:23] <gordonDrogon> Gadgetoid_pi, using a spare GPIO pin on the Pi.
[11:23] <Tachyon`> or the propeller come to that which also looks interesting
[11:24] <Gadgetoid_pi> gordonDrogon: you basically just have to use /gpio to blip that pin up and down at the right moment??? but the timing??? how???
[11:24] <gordonDrogon> Tachyon`, ah yea -that's the multi-core gaming chip with an ATmega front-end?
[11:24] <gordonDrogon> Gadgetoid_pi, yes.
[11:24] <Tachyon`> err, it's a multicore 40 pin device, not designed for gaming or anythign particularly
[11:24] <Gadgetoid_pi> Being able to program directly from the Pi would probably render the two breakout boards I just bought redundant ;)
[11:24] <Tachyon`> it can generate VGA and Composite NTSC though

[11:25] <Tachyon`> I did port rpcemu to it...
[11:25] <Gadgetoid_pi> gordonDrogon: Ah, flip it to in so it pulls it down to ground?
[11:25] <Tachyon`> beebem was a dead loss though
[11:25] <Tachyon`> although I got it working something is slowing it to a crawl and I can't find out what
[11:25] <gordonDrogon> Gadgetoid_pi, yes. I think if I drive the pin high it'll 'upset' the ATmega.

[11:32] <gmjhowe> So, what can the Pandora do, that a Pi could not do once the software is more evolved?
[11:32] <Tachyon`> well, the pandora is a lot faster than the pi
[11:32] <Tachyon`> the pi also lacks a built in touchscreen, keyboard, games controls, wifi, bluetooth etc.
[11:32] <Tachyon`> they're designed for different purposes really
[11:33] <gordonDrogon> Gadgetoid_pi, oddly enough the reset pin is good to +17V ... so I guess it must be pretty resilliant to being abused.
[11:33] <Gadgetoid_pi> You can take the board out of the Pandora and use it as Pi, including breaking out the GPIO if you're into masochism
[11:33] <Tachyon`> yes and it has exposed GPIO on the board for people who want to do such things
[11:33] <Tachyon`> but I'd really rather not
[11:34] <Gadgetoid_pi> gordonDrogon: yeah I imagine the reset pin is the thing that gets abused most by hobbyists

[11:37] <Adya> How do you think, is raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=50&t=8071&p=96737 more useful than standart debian image?

[11:38] <Tachyon`> I really just want a base debian image with nothing else, lol
[11:38] <Tachyon`> I can apt-get the something elses as required, moot atm though as I have no pi yet

[11:41] <gordonDrogon> Hm. just found a problem with running the ATmega at 12MHz. All the Arduino baud rate calcs assume 16MHz clock.
[11:41] <gobby> I'm just trying to figure out a power budget for a Pi setup... I want to plug an SSD into one of the USB ports on my Pi... The SSD will pull ~ 2.3W I'm assuming the Pi is never going to hit 2.7W so the 5W I have coming from a 1A plug is more than enough?
[11:42] <Arch1mede> debian squeeze is the friendliest imho
[11:42] <Tachyon`> the pi usb ports are limited toabout 120mA
[11:42] <Tachyon`> you are not going to run an SSD from one
[11:42] <Adya> Maybe suitable I think...
[11:42] <Ben64> gobby: yeah you can't draw that much from pi
[11:42] <Adya> No, I am not talking about debian
[11:42] <Tachyon`> well, not unless it has a seperate PSU

[11:43] <vvompy> hi, I found this command in my tutorial for installing my wifi dongle. Could somebody tell me whats the "kernel-path"? make ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=arm-linux-gnueabi- KSRC=path/to/kernel KVER=3.1.9+ MODDESTDIR=path/to/SD/lib/modules/3.1.9+/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/
[11:43] <Adya> Friendliest alternative to wvdial
[11:43] <gordonDrogon> Actually the whole Arduino environment will be slow too - as it assumes a 16MHz clock. Ah well.
[11:43] <gobby> I'll find an enclosure that has its own power supply

[11:46] <Gadgetoid_pi> gordonDrogon: Isn't there a clock setting somewhere? As it can't be hard-coded to 16Mhz when 8mhz Arduinos exist
[11:46] <gordonDrogon> Gadgetoid_pi, it's probably going to require a complete and customised setup for the Pi.
[11:47] <gordonDrogon> Gadgetoid_pi, there is conditionall compilnation for some platforms - yes, the nanos, etc. that run at 8MHz.

[11:47] <gordonDrogon> however I don't know how the IDE actually pulls it all together.

[11:48] <Adya> I want to use my Kyivstar 3g dongle
[11:48] <Tachyon`> I take it it's not like the PIC where you can just set the fuses for the clock frequency and it works
[11:48] <Gadgetoid_pi> Or bring the voltage back to 5 and just convert the TX pin from the arduino down to 3.3??? I'm sure a 5v arduino would be comfortable with 3.3v going into its rx
[11:49] * BeholdMyGlory (~behold@d90-130-9-40.cust.tele2.se) Quit (Ping timeout: 248 seconds)

[11:49] <Gadgetoid_pi> gordonDrogon: one other thing to note, you need to set the reference pin for analogue inputs by supplying it with 3.3v or they'll be funky
[11:49] <Gadgetoid_pi> At least, I think you need to- not entirely sure
[11:50] <gordonDrogon> Gadgetoid_pi, that's already done, it takes 5V off the GPIO connector and has its own 3.3v regulator.
[11:50] <Gadgetoid_pi> I ran a pot to my analogue input at 3.3v but didn't ever push the range out via serial to check what it was getting

[11:50] <Gadgetoid_pi> gordonDrogon: Any reason for taking the 5v from GPIO instead of 3.3?
[11:50] <gordonDrogon> I've checked mine - works fine. I can read 0 to 3.3v (or 0 to 1023)
[11:50] <Gadgetoid_pi> nice
[11:50] <gordonDrogon> Gadgetoid_pi, the 5V supply has more current avalable.
[11:50] <Gadgetoid_pi> I'll look into that when I get stuff working again
[11:50] <gordonDrogon> not that the Atmega needs it, however...
[11:51] <Gadgetoid_pi> gordonDrogon: thought as much, fortunately I've got all the stuff required to set up a voltage reg
[11:51] <Gadgetoid_pi> My shift-register driven LEDs were brighter at 5v, and the Pi didn't care that it was shifting out to a 5v circuit??? I think

[13:00] <gordonDrogon> friggle, ok. what's different with that and me simply changing squeeze to wheeze and doing a dist-upgrade?
[13:00] <SpeedEvil> Gadgetoid_pi: Indeed.
[13:01] <SpeedEvil> Gadgetoid_pi: The hardware is quite irreelvant.
[13:01] <SpeedEvil> (to a large degree)
[13:01] <gordonDrogon> friggle, but I have to admit in 18 years of using debian, other than raspbian, I've *never* run a system on testing/unstable...
[13:01] <friggle> gordonDrogon: if you prefer that cool. Though this image is in general configured much more cleanly and is not just a snapshot of someone's pi

[13:01] <gordonDrogon> friggle, yea, I've had to "undo" some of the things in the foundations debian ...
[13:02] <friggle> gordonDrogon: yeah, it is fairly solid though. If you reqire extreme stability squeeze might be better (and I intend to spit out a minimal squeeze image too)
[13:02] <friggle> gordonDrogon: yes, which is why I wrote spindle and we're using that now :) https://github.com/asb/spindle
[13:03] <Gadgetoid_pi> I think schools/colleges ruin electronics by bombarding people with too much theory before they've even got them interested in the practical aspect of it
[13:03] <Gadgetoid_pi> I took electronics in college for a week before I quit, it bored me to tears
[13:04] <gordonDrogon> friggle, your link doesn't tell me what spindle is and that's why I hate github.

[13:08] <Gadgetoid_pi> megaproxy: the board is only sending bits to the shift register, so it's not likely to try
[13:08] <megaproxy> i want to use the segments from that.

[13:09] <gordonDrogon> Neat. RS232 with DIP switches!!! How cool is that :)
[13:09] <Gadgetoid_pi> megaproxy: nice!
[13:09] <megaproxy> no idea how to run this thing tho
[13:09] <megaproxy> nothing on the internet abou tit
[13:10] <Gadgetoid_pi> tried sending it random characters over serial and seeing what it does?
[13:10] <gordonDrogon> exactly- that's what I'd do...
[13:10] <megaproxy> no
[13:10] <megaproxy> i should do that.
[13:10] <gordonDrogon> get a serial port onto it, start at 9600 baud and go from there...
[13:10] <megaproxy> im totally new to all t hat
[13:10] <megaproxy> so i wouldnt know how
[13:10] <megaproxy> thats the problem.

[13:11] <Gadgetoid_pi> just hook up a USB->Serial adaptor, fire up a terminal emulator and type 'til it does something

[13:11] <megaproxy> that i can do
[13:12] <Gadgetoid_pi> Should probably be slightly more scientific than that, but there's a good chance it just accepts text and displays it automagically
[13:12] <megaproxy> i somehow doubt it
[13:12] <megaproxy> i think this is from a old PBX
[13:12] <megaproxy> was made to display call queues or some shit
[13:12] <gordonDrogon> check the 'betabrite' and 'prolite' protocols. they seem to deal with wallboards like that.

[13:14] <megaproxy> mmm full colour led board
[13:14] <megaproxy> want

[13:15] <Gadgetoid_pi> They don't come cheap though :(
[13:15] <gordonDrogon> make one...
[13:15] <gordonDrogon> probably not on stripboard though!
[13:16] * gordonDrogon ponders
[13:16] <Gadgetoid_pi> It'd be hard to do it with multi-colour LEDs, they need a varying voltage don't they?

[13:17] <gordonDrogon> yes, variable voltage, or PWM.
[13:17] <SpeedEvil> All LEDs are essentially driven by current, not voltage.
[13:17] <Gadgetoid_pi> Gonna run out of PWM pins pretty quick
[13:17] <SpeedEvil> And PWM
[13:17] <gordonDrogon> one mans voltage is another mans current :)
[13:17] <SpeedEvil> you get LED controllers that are quite cheap and flexible
[13:18] <Gadgetoid_pi> over ??20 for an RGB LED matrix, only 8x8
[13:19] <SpeedEvil> Quite cheap.
[13:19] <megaproxy> 8x8 could be some fun
[13:19] <megaproxy> could show y/n

[13:25] * PiBot sets mode +v onefreeman
[13:25] <SpeedEvil> yes
[13:25] <gordonDrogon> if you can do that, then it'll flicker less and software PWM might be possible.
[13:26] <SpeedEvil> In general, it doesn't matter
[13:26] <SpeedEvil> Simply as you can clock at ~20MHz easily
[13:26] <gordonDrogon> I guess it depends on the frequncy.
[13:26] <gordonDrogon> SpeedEvil, not off an arduino - Pi maybe in assembler...
[13:26] <Veryevil> for shift and latch you want a 595
[13:26] <SpeedEvil> And (say) 5us in setting the display vs 1ms is irrelevant.
[13:27] <SpeedEvil> There are many, many quite cheap LED matrix drivers.
[13:27] <Veryevil> e.g. 74xx595
[13:27] <SpeedEvil> Also - ##electronics
[13:27] <zgreg> I wonder if it would make sense to use SPI for a secondary SD interface
[13:27] <gordonDrogon> might use one of those rainboduinos for my xmas project. I want to put up a set of programmable LEDs on the towns xmas tree.
[13:27] <Veryevil> e.g. 74HC595
[13:29] <zgreg> SPI mode isn't exactly fast, but it's better than what the current "vanilla" kernel for the pi achieves
[13:29] <zgreg> and that already seems to be acceptable
[13:30] <Gadgetoid_pi> gordonDrogon: position the LEDs correctly and you could write text around the tree :D
[13:32] <SpeedEvil> The correct way to do this is to use a fiber-optic xmas tree.

[15:43] <beardface> do you have a design you want printed?
[15:43] <megaproxy> i like the case you have.
[15:43] <beardface> yeah, it is a nice little case
[15:43] <megaproxy> but if your in USA, it would cost a bit to ship i guess

[16:19] <Veryevil> it was a problem before https://github.com/raspberrypi/firmware/issues/1 but I guess it was resolved? maybe its back?
[16:19] <friggle> or copy the other ilclient over the hardfp one
[16:19] <gordonDrogon> Veryevil, I managed to compile and run hello_triangle on Raspbian OK.
[16:19] <friggle> Veryevil: yes, the problem is that the ilclient in opt/vc/src/hello_pi/lib/ilclient is softfp. For now, use the hardfp one in /opt/vc/lib. I'll nudge Dom to fix it if it's not already on his list
[16:20] <bionicRobot> hi everyone.

[16:23] <blkhawk> Habbie: well - it would be pointless
[16:23] <Habbie> pointlessness is not a technical reason
[16:23] <friggle> Veryevil: all libs in /opt/vc/lib are hardfp
[16:23] <Habbie> IT_Sean, unsigned is not a reason, to me - especially not if you change the goal from 'run iOS' to 'run iOS binaries'
[16:23] <friggle> and there is a precompiled hardfp libilclient.a there
[16:23] <IT_Sean> No, but it being the wrong architecture, and the whole unsigned hardware issues ARE.
[16:23] <Habbie> IT_Sean, and i'd love to see the architectural differences pointed out
[16:23] <blkhawk> true all you need is a emulator that simulates an apple device
[16:24] <dirty_d> does hard make a noticable performance increase?
[16:24] <dirty_d> archlinux people said 1-7% for heavily fp stuff
[16:24] <SpeedEvil> It depends.
[16:24] <blkhawk> Habbie: just google twice - one for the old hrdware in the iphone and once for the raspberry firmware
[16:24] <blkhawk> compare
[16:24] <SpeedEvil> It can be >50%
[16:24] <SpeedEvil> IIRC povray
[16:24] <gordonDrogon> waiting on the updater...
[16:24] <SpeedEvil> But that's a very, very edge-case.
[16:24] <blkhawk> dirty_d: actually for heavy fp stuff you get factor 6-8 or so
[16:24] <IT_Sean> Habbie: there is software out there to EMULATE iOS. But, you will not be able to run it natively on the pi. If you would like to have a discussion on why it won't work, i'll be happy to engage in one after work. I usually get home at around 6pm US ET
[16:25] <Habbie> blkhawk, i did that, but i'm not sure why i should care about anything but the CPU

[16:25] <blkhawk> Habbie: the gfx chip?
[16:25] <blkhawk> sound?
[16:25] <Habbie> blkhawk, i'm thinking about how 'wine' works on any linux/bsd intel machine
[16:25] <blkhawk> yes
[16:25] <blkhawk> but it ill make stuff SLOW
[16:25] <dirty_d> blkhawk, 6-8 times faster?
[16:25] <blkhawk> SLOW
[16:25] <Habbie> wine often is faster than running an app natively on windows
[16:25] <blkhawk> dirty_d: syntectic fp benchmarks hit that
[16:25] <dirty_d> wow
[16:26] <blkhawk> Habbie: well trust me this would not be
[16:26] <Habbie> blkhawk, why?
[16:26] <gordonDrogon> Hm. seems to be giving me a 224 image too - I was on the 192 one.
[16:26] <dwatkins> did people get Android to run on the Pi, I'm curious.
[16:26] <dirty_d> i've run games in wine that run at about 80% the framerate as on windows
[16:26] <blkhawk> Wine only emulates the API not the system cpu type
[16:26] <dwatkins> I guess not, as it's such a specific architecture...
[16:26] <Habbie> blkhawk, i know - i'm not talking about emulating the cpu either
[16:26] <blkhawk> yes
[16:26] <blkhawk> you just said
[16:27] <blkhawk> wine is several times faster
[16:27] <Habbie> it can be, yes
[16:27] <Veryevil> modified Makefile.Include to point to /opt/vc/lib/libilclient.a
[16:27] <Habbie> next question is whether wine on the pi will run windows 8 arm apps, some day ;)
[16:27] <mythos> wine emulates nothing. wine implements the windows api. if wine emulates anything, than the gtklibs are emulating the same for gtk-programs
[16:27] <Habbie> mythos, indeed
[16:28] <dwatkins> wine stands for Wine Is Not an Emulator ;)
[16:28] <IT_Sean> I always preferred Windows Is Nasty Excrement :p

[16:34] <gordonDrogon> Veryevil, not that bothered - it's not something I'll be doing on the Pi really...
[16:34] <IT_Sean> My understanding was that they did not charge you until they shipped / until they actually had a Pi they were going to ship to you.
[16:34] <IT_Sean> i.e. it may not have left their warehouse yet, but, if they sharged you, it should mean that you will have a Pi on it's way to you shortly.
[16:35] <friggle> Veryevil: thanks for the report. make clean && make inside the /opt/vc/src/hello_pi/lib subdirs would also fix it. Should be fixed in the next firmware update

[17:00] <gmjhowe> But most of those will have composite video.

[17:09] <blkhawk> ah yes
[17:09] <blkhawk> thats what i was hinting at too
[17:09] <zgreg> but fortunately mpeg-2 motion compensation maps rather well to vertex/fragment shaders
[17:09] <hotwings> speaking of which, liz didnt reply but eben did.. apparently the videocore iv doesnt have any deinterlacing capability :(

[17:14] <blkhawk> zgreg: neighter does the atom tho
[17:14] <zgreg> guess what? VIA's initial samples were clocked at 1.8 GHz and they promoted the performance with those samples, but in the end they had to reduce clock to 1.3 GHz to lower power consumption, and that set back performance to the same level as the intel atom

[17:40] <dirty_d> traeak, find otu the monitor's native resolution
[17:40] <gordonDrogon> Butcho, the breadboard has an Arduino on-board. The Pi is talking to the arduino to control the stoff on it - leds, switches and a potentiometer. it's echoing the settings to the screen.

[17:40] <Butcho> yeah I see the arduino, but what is it doing
[17:41] <dirty_d> and use the modes with the resolutions shown
[17:41] <Butcho> the arduino I mean
[17:41] <gordonDrogon> it's just acting as a dumb IO board for the Pi. It's running a program that takes commands over the serial line.
[17:41] <Butcho> cool
[17:41] <gordonDrogon> So the program in the Pi is using an Arduino "wiring" like library and it sends the commands to the Arduino which then executes them.
[17:42] <gordonDrogon> the setup on the breadboard is just a demo of bits & pieces - not for any specific purpose, just my own testing, really.

[18:04] <megaproxy> do it
[18:04] <dirty_d> tether it with an ethernet cable
[18:04] <megaproxy> i was planning on building a TBM

[18:04] <megaproxy> MikeH, i have 2!
[18:04] <megaproxy> :D
[18:04] <megaproxy> id use my TBM to tunnel down my garden

[18:16] <dirty_d> oh so tiny
[18:16] <megaproxy> yea small
[18:16] <dirty_d> yea mild steel
[18:16] <Caver> nah ... cast iron .. much stronger than steel
[18:16] <dirty_d> it doesnt need to be that strong though
[18:16] <dirty_d> for that size and garden soil
[18:16] <Caver> and cheap, as it'll wear fast, so you have to replace it
[18:17] <dirty_d> its harder to work with though
[18:17] <dirty_d> mild steel is easy to cut and weld

[18:17] <dirty_d> how would it work?
[18:17] <megaproxy> ive no idea
[18:17] <traeak> it's a hanns-g 27" monitor...what fun
[18:17] <dirty_d> what would keep it from rotating in the hole
[18:17] <megaproxy> probably with some tracks out the back
[18:17] <megaproxy> with a spring
[18:17] <megaproxy> to keep presure on them
[18:17] <megaproxy> so it cant move unless the motors move it
[18:18] <megaproxy> so like it "expands" into the hole
[18:18] <dirty_d> how will the tracks get into the hole?

[18:18] <megaproxy> maybe a drain pipe of sorts
[18:18] <Caver> :)
[18:18] <megaproxy> so it can go home, stay dry, and charge
[18:18] <dirty_d> megaproxy, i think an extandable drill would work better
[18:18] <megaproxy> then continue on
[18:18] <dirty_d> make the face of the drill
[18:18] <dirty_d> and pipes that connect together
[18:19] <dirty_d> and then make some sorta motor to power it
[18:19] <megaproxy> i wish i was good at CAD
[18:19] <dirty_d> push it into the hole
[18:19] <dirty_d> when the motor gets up to the hole detach it and add another shaft segment
[18:19] <dirty_d> then pull them out detaching one at a time

[18:21] <IT_Sean> you keep going through to the other side, then.

[19:12] <bolosaur> i read the first half of your message to me
[19:12] <bolosaur> and my heart filled with joy
[19:12] <bolosaur> then i read the second half
[19:12] <megaproxy> minecraft loves to suck up ram
[19:12] <bolosaur> and, well
[19:12] <NucWin> java loves it
[19:12] <megaproxy> indeed
[19:13] <megaproxy> i thought id give it enough to feed off :D
[19:13] <NucWin> the one thing i dont like about android is the java
[19:13] <bolosaur> lets just say you've turned me from the light
[19:13] <NucWin> where ios is better
[19:13] <bolosaur> my mind is now shrouded in darkness
[19:13] <bolosaur> im a dark linux user
[19:13] <NucWin> open some windows
[19:13] <bolosaur> i sit in the shadows with a fedora, smoking a cigarette
[19:13] <bolosaur> as i type the darkest of linux commands
[19:13] <bolosaur> this is what youve turned me into.
[19:14] <megaproxy> i prefer android to ios
[19:14] <megaproxy> by lots
[19:14] <megaproxy> and jelly tots
[19:14] <megaproxy> etc
[19:14] <bolosaur> I've never used an Android device that didn't like.
[19:14] <bolosaur> .
[19:14] <bolosaur> didn't lag.*
[19:14] <NucWin> i wont buy an apple product but i do dislike java
[19:14] <bolosaur> when scrolling etc
[19:14] <traeak> the new linaro stuff :-p
[19:14] <megaproxy> mine dosent lag.
[19:14] <megaproxy> neither did my previous one
[19:14] <megaproxy> :/
[19:14] <bolosaur> Every Android user says their device doesn't lag, but then I try it and see that scrolling/animations are done at like
[19:14] <megaproxy> htc desire/ galaxy s2
[19:15] <bolosaur> 10-30 FPS
[19:15] <bolosaur> sometimes it lags like heck
[19:15] <NucWin> mine lags a little at times but thats prob all the junk i have installed
[19:15] <megaproxy> even low fps
[19:15] <NucWin> i have Desire HD
[19:15] <megaproxy> i wouldnt care
[19:15] <megaproxy> thats vanity
[19:15] <traeak> so which is preferable? applications crashing (ios) or hard locking (android) ?
[19:15] <bolosaur> i tried an android tablet with a fresh install
[19:15] <bolosaur> and even out of the box
[19:15] <megaproxy> hard locking?
[19:15] <bolosaur> it lagged when sliding between desktops/screens
[19:15] <bolosaur> thats pretty bad man
[19:15] <megaproxy> wat
[19:15] <traeak> applicatioh locks up and becomed unresponsive
[19:15] <megaproxy> bolosaur, ive never had that experience

[19:16] <megaproxy> so like
[19:16] <megaproxy> would it affect the notification bar?
[19:16] <bolosaur> I don't know. To me visual consistency and presentation is just as important as the technology backing it up.
[19:16] * megaproxy will play now
[19:16] <traeak> megaproxy: never had an application on android just lock up. the application can be killed but in order to restart it without the app locking up again i find i need to reboot the android system
[19:16] <megaproxy> what phone is it?
[19:17] <traeak> nook color/viewsonic gtablet
[19:17] <traeak> seen it happen on both
[19:17] <megaproxy> odd :Z
[19:17] <megaproxy> the one time my phone locked up
[19:17] <megaproxy> was when i was rooting it.
[19:17] <megaproxy> it bricked
[19:17] <megaproxy> haha
[19:17] <traeak> the phone doesn't lock up, but applications do
[19:17] <megaproxy> luckilly it was within 14 days of purcahse
[19:17] <megaproxy> so i sent it back saying its broken, send another
[19:17] <megaproxy> no questions asked
[19:18] <megaproxy> traeak, is it the same app each time?
[19:18] <megaproxy> its more than likley some compatibility thing
[19:18] <traeak> megaproxy: tends to be games
[19:18] <NucWin> im going to root after ive sent my phone to have proximity sensor fixed under warranty
[19:18] <traeak> megaproxy: pocket legends definitely has that behavior
[19:18] <traeak> i've seen other apps lock up too
[19:18] <NucWin> nice how HTC now provide the tools for rooting
[19:18] <gordonDrogon> ? Do they?
[19:19] <NucWin> yups

[19:19] <megaproxy> its nice

[19:19] <megaproxy> i love samsung

[19:20] <megaproxy> the sticker being rom or w.e
[19:20] <NucWin> advantage to the HTC root is the security and bootloader are still locked

[19:33] <lastebil> friend is running debian and his pi will not stay running overnight.
[19:33] <lastebil> is anyone else using debian having that issue?
[19:33] <gordonDrogon> not me.

[19:34] <lastebil> k. this does not bode well then.

[19:34] <trevorman> lastebil: its only debian? what happens when it "stops"?
[19:34] <lastebil> well, the question then may be "is it getting power the full time" - but as he's an electrician, I think I can rule that out with some certainty
[19:34] <blkhawk> i need a gee-wiz demo for my rasberry - how far along are the mediaplayer distros?
[19:34] <lastebil> trevorman: He has reported it 'not running overnight' so I imagine lockup, not kernel panic.
[19:35] <trevorman> lastebil: idk. he might have a PSU thats under 5V or not able to supply enough current etc...
[19:35] <lastebil> again, he's an electrician, so I would suspect that isn't it, but I _am_ going to ask (:
[19:35] <lastebil> as, well, the other possibility is his is a faulty board, which I would hope is NOT the case.
[19:35] <lastebil> so I am hoping he did something silly like try to use a 3V power supply.

[19:43] <ratherDashing> NucWin: /boot/config.txt put in arm_freq=800 to overclock it to 800
[19:43] <trevorman> not sure how you'd script it though
[19:43] <trevorman> if you're trying to make it determien the max
[19:43] <friggle> zgreg: and is subscribed to http://lists.infradead.org/mailman/listinfo/linux-rpi-kernel which is a good place for patch review (aside from pull requests)
[19:44] <ratherDashing> i have arm_freq=800 and sdram_freq=500
[19:44] <dirty_d> would lowering the temp mean higher overclock without overvolting?
[19:44] <NucWin> yeh thinking making some stability tests eg run something to test cpu/gpu/x264
[19:44] <IT_Sean> dirty_d: no.
[19:44] <NucWin> then have a script keep increasing the clock till it crashes
[19:44] <IT_Sean> You can only go SOOO fast without overvolting.
[19:44] <dirty_d> IT_Sean, would it mean safer overvolting?
[19:44] * IT_Sean shrugs. Even OC'd, you shouldn't have to worry about temperature.
[19:45] <trevorman> NucWin: ah. guess that would work. you'd need to review whatever was set in config.txt and reduce it a little though once you did discover it hung/crashing/rebooting
[19:45] <NucWin> yups thats my plan
[19:45] <IT_Sean> THen again, if you are going to OV & OC, it wouldn't hurt to watch your temps
[19:45] <traeak> OC is eevil
[19:45] <traeak> imean OV
[19:45] <traeak> undervolt is cool
[19:46] <trevorman> dirty_d: as with all electronics, it would help a bit but it is unlikely you'd get any really significant improvement though

[19:46] <traeak> i never had much good from overclocking under linux
[19:46] <ReggieUK> Given how unstable drivers and hardware is atm, I probably wouldn't bother overclocking anything just yet
[19:46] <SpeedEvil> linlin: In some ways it's ideal for limited uses
[19:46] <ratherDashing> i've had no issue running mine at 800mhz
[19:46] <ReggieUK> there will always be someone that says 'Works great for me'
[19:46] <friggle> yeah, I've never known of an issue at 800mhz
[19:46] <SpeedEvil> linlin: For example - if you want to run it into a 3" composite monitor in a guage.
[19:46] <trevorman> its not going to make a RPi that can only do 850 suddenly do 1ghz if thats what you're wondering. not without some truly heroic cooling and you'd probably find it delaminates the board or breaks the pop memory chip off
[19:46] <ReggieUK> without knowing why it works great
[19:46] <ReggieUK> for about an hour
[19:47] <ReggieUK> and then the magic smoke arrives
[19:47] <dirty_d> trevorman, an amd cpu was overclocked to 8GHz on liquid helium
[19:47] <ReggieUK> or a n00b will say oooh, that sounds excellent, I'll try that
[19:47] <ReggieUK> and fries their pi immediately
[19:47] <trevorman> dirty_d: i'd class that as truly heroic cooling :P
[19:47] <linlin> SpeedEvil, im referig to it as actually being installed in the vehicle
[19:47] <dirty_d> lol
[19:47] <SpeedEvil> linlin: Well - yes
[19:47] <trevorman> my rpi actually gets really hot when you keep it at 100% CPU+GPU
[19:47] <SpeedEvil> linlin: I mean behind a 3" screen as a fake guage, for example
[19:48] <trevorman> hot enough that I can't leave my finger on there
[19:48] <ReggieUK> trevorman, what would you class water AND peltier cooling for a DSLR camera/
[19:48] <ReggieUK> ?
[19:48] <linlin> just wondering if anyones doing it already as a place i can look at to start off with and get ideas
[19:48] <traeak> so is there any reallygood reason to keep 128MB with the GPU ?
[19:48] <markus_> hello internet
[19:48] <dirty_d> playing 720p mine is just warm
[19:48] <zgreg> friggle: I'll take a look at it. anyway, I think a scope doesn't lie and proves nicely that my assumptions are correct
[19:48] <ratherDashing> trevorman: yeah i walked over to mine about an hour into a 720 mkv file and put my finger on, i could leave it on there for 20-30 seconds, but it was pretty hot

[19:49] <trevorman> ratherDashing: its when you leave it on the xbmc menu that its at 100% cpu all the time + whatever the gpu is doing

[19:50] <trevorman> ReggieUK: figured it would be astronomy. they <3 chilled sensors because of their crazy long exposures
[19:50] <ratherDashing> plus i like having a real distro that i can do stuff (like be on irssi like i am right now)
[19:50] <ReggieUK> sure but imho that is a tad overkill
[19:51] <friggle> zgreg: what did you measure with a scope?
[19:51] <ReggieUK> it iced up the sensor
[19:51] <trevorman> lol
[19:51] <ReggieUK> it's supposed to replace the more commericial units
[19:51] <ReggieUK> which are 2-300 quid
[19:52] <ReggieUK> but she already naffed one camera :D
[19:52] <ReggieUK> so it kind of defeats teh object
[19:52] <zgreg> friggle: it's not me, but someone (competent) on the forums
[19:52] <zgreg> friggle: and he measured the frequency on the SD clock line
[19:52] <friggle> zgreg: I'll ask him if he can drop by the thread and clarify
[19:53] <NucWin> so 3v 5GHz running in bath of oil?
[19:53] <trevorman> yeah. I can see icing up the sensor as being pretty deadly for it :)
[19:53] <zgreg> maybe naren refers to the programmed clock mode that is not working on the bcm2835?

[21:53] <neofutur> yes
[21:53] <syadnom> are you putting a heatsink on the pop package?

[21:53] <neofutur> the first bootable image on http://raspberry.pi.gw.gd/f15-Gentoo-Linux.html
[21:53] <ratherDashing> what the heck, how long does it take you to compile all the dumb updates?
[21:54] <friggle> 930 without overvolting is impressive
[21:54] <neofutur> MarcN: because i like it and use it on dedicated servers for 8 years now
[21:55] <gordonDrogon> lee, I'm using a 4-port powered LOGIK hub. Works fine for me.
[21:55] <ratherDashing> do you precompile the updates and push them out to yer servers or do you take an outage with gentoo
[21:55] <neofutur> because its the only distro with a full support of a hardened kernel ( grsec )
[21:55] <MarcN> neofutur, why not cross compile it? I'm assuming gentoo supports it.
[21:55] <ratherDashing> i would always think it would be a server admin's nightmare
[21:55] <neofutur> because its easy to rebuild a package with different options
[21:55] <lee> gordonDrogon: I have ordered a hub on the "works" list from 7dayshop (they are currently out of stock)
[21:56] <neofutur> because the IRC support is much better than debian one
[21:56] <gordonDrogon> lee, I got moe from PCworld...
[21:56] <neofutur> because gentoo respect upstream

[21:59] <neofutur> ratherDashing: not a server admin nightmare, when i compile packages, the server works, not me
[21:59] <neofutur> the server will losse some time building things, i save time
[22:00] <Ben64> its just too much hassle
[22:00] <neofutur> whatever i need its just a matter of chging u esu flag to rebuild a package with different options or optimizations

[22:09] <neofutur> this is the kind of backdoor you are talking of
[22:09] <neofutur> trust grsec, not selinux
[22:09] <neofutur> (where having SELinux enabled actually increases your risk against a large class of kernel vulnerabilities)
[22:10] <rigel> is that class smaller than the class of vulns that you prevent by using SELinux?
[22:10] <neofutur> grsec and http://pastebin.com/1p9VCjU5 should protect me from most of those backdoors
[22:10] <neofutur> process will be killed instantly
[22:10] <Ben64> nothing will protect you from everything
[22:10] <neofutur> I said _most_
[22:10] <Ben64> so why take so much more time to use gentoo
[22:11] <neofutur> not _everything_
[22:11] <mikey_w> Pulling the plug may or may not protect you.
[22:11] <neofutur> i dont loose time
[22:11] <neofutur> I d loose more time using deian
[22:11] <Ben64> mikey_w: not if someone takes the computer physically :)
[22:11] <neofutur> only the CPU loose time with gentoo, not me
[22:11] <Ben64> lose*
[22:11] <mikey_w> Physical control is the first defense.
[22:11] <Ben64> and you do lose time as well
[22:11] <Ben64> because you have to wait for things to compile
[22:12] <Ben64> and time = money
[22:12] <neofutur> I know better than you if i lose time or not
[22:12] <neofutur> you know better than me if you lose time or not
[22:12] <Ben64> unless you have a time machine you do
[22:12] <Ben64> and if you're using a time machine just to eliminate compile time... then you're doing it wrong
[22:13] <neofutur> Ben64: waiting fo things to compile is not a problem with 8 3ghtz core and -j8 and ccache
[22:13] <dirty_d> i used to use gentoo
[22:13] <gordonDrogon> I always wanted to use gentoo, but never had the time to get into it...

[22:15] <neofutur> waiting 5 mins is not a loss of time for me, i can work on something else while things are compiling

[22:21] <mkopack> Only Gentoo and Raspbian are supporting hardfp right now
[22:21] <dirty_d> softfp means that the floating point math is done in the fpu, but float arguments are passed in integer registers

[23:01] <WASDx> How limited is cluster technology? Is it theoratically possible to combine a number of RPis to get a fully functioning computer with all their RAM combined for instance?

[23:04] <traeak> it's not worth it wth the rpi
[23:04] <traeak> single USB port is all you get
[23:05] <traeak> maybe the pins can do something to get more throughput i dunno
[23:06] <urs> WASDx: there's no easy way to have a cluster of machines appear as a single, larger computer
[23:07] <urs> You can combine a cluster of raspberries via openmpi, no problem.
[23:07] * Sakyl (~Sakyl@77-23-81-229-dynip.superkabel.de) Quit (Ping timeout: 246 seconds)
[23:07] <traeak> something like plan9 is more condusive to setting that up
[23:07] <urs> But you have to modify your applications to actually make use of this
[23:08] <WASDx> urs: I see, thanks
[23:08] <Matt> the think to remember about clustering is that your inter-node connection is going to be massively slower (both in throughput and latency) than communication within a node
[23:08] <Butcho> found it. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0047AALS0/ref=ox_ya_os_product might need that to power a PI off of a usb hub since they might be hardcoded to only output 500ma
[23:09] <Matt> which is why in large HPC (high performance computing) clusters, they use something like Infiniband as the interconnect
[23:09] <Matt> or Myrinet, or suchlike
[23:09] <WASDx> urs: But I think it would be theoretically possible, just no software for it today? To make several computers appear as one.
[23:09] <Matt> ethernet sucks as an interconnect :)
[23:09] <Matt> WASDx: it's highly inefficient
[23:09] <urs> WASDx: sure, yes. Silicon graphics Altix machines do that for example
[23:10] <Matt> typically you write your code around an MPI library
[23:10] <urs> but unless you have incredibly fast interconnects, it will be very very slow.
[23:10] <Matt> and that provides communication between threads
[23:10] <Matt> then the underlying MPI implementation deals with communication between nodes
[23:10] <traeak> basically the cost of fast interconnects ends up dwarfing the cost of the machines themselves
[23:10] <WASDx> yeah i see. Comparing ram-speeds to ethernet proves how slow it would be
[23:11] <urs> The Cray XT series of supercomputers for example, is just a way to scale up the Hypertransport interconnect of opteron cpus
[23:11] <Matt> that way you can write your code to be aware of the fact it's spread across a whole load of nodes and only pass the information between nodes that you need to
[23:11] <WASDx> especially for daily use. I see how software as BOINC could send out tasks which separate machiness compute and return a result
[23:11] <urs> Parallel programming is still very hard. Unfortunately.

[23:13] <traeak> i prefer to call it "distributed computing"
[23:13] <gordonDrogon> it's still non-trivial.
[23:14] <traeak> our stuff is heavily multithreaded
[23:14] <gordonDrogon> the question that was always asked: "I have this 30 year old FORTRAN program - can you make it go faster?"
[23:14] <traeak> runs about linear...we've only tested on 64 cores though
[23:14] <traeak> hehe
[23:14] <traeak> #1 don't use 30yro hardware
[23:14] * urs is running massively parallel plasma simulations for his PhD thesis
[23:14] <gordonDrogon> so you end up with a solution like the Pi - libraries that execute on the hadrware in the background while the foregound just needs re-linking.

[23:15] <gordonDrogon> traeak, really... people have old old programs and wil not change them - we'd make them go X times faster, but if they re-write them they'd got x^2 times faster... (sort of thing) )-:
[23:15] <WASDx> Is PiBot running on a pi yet? I asked that half a year ago and then the answer was no.
[23:16] <Matt> gordonDrogon: we had a great one to solve - code that was executing a lot slower than we'd expect, which on closer inspection was spending a large chunk of time in iowait
[23:16] <GabrialDestruir> So, apparently if I run this movie via USB, it's got all sorts of buffer issues, but streaming it across network it seems to just be fine.

[23:17] <Matt> so it was doing successive matrix manipulation using temp files
[23:17] <SpeedEvil> hah
[23:17] <traeak> heh, yeah that's bad
[23:17] <SpeedEvil> malloc() -> 100k speedup?
[23:17] <traeak> Matt: just stick in an SSD it'll run way faster :-p
[23:17] <gordonDrogon> what I find amusing is a suptercomoputer I helped build 20 years ago now is about the same power as a Pi...
[23:17] <Matt> so it was basically creating and deleting these temp files as fast as the array would let it
[23:18] <Matt> traeak: that's basically what we did :)
[23:18] <gordonDrogon> actually, that's not quite right - however it's along the lines.
[23:18] <GabrialDestruir> Time travel!
[23:18] <Matt> except they were 10k SATA disks IIRC
[23:18] <gordonDrogon> anyone know how many cores the Pi chip has?
[23:18] <traeak> what kind of cores? :-p
[23:18] <SpeedEvil> gordonDrogon: It depends how you define core.
[23:18] <Matt> given that this was 10 years ago
[23:18] <SpeedEvil> gordonDrogon: Probably at least two turing complete cores.
[23:18] <gordonDrogon> Hmmmm.

[23:19] <Matt> we couldn't change the code - too much red tape
[23:19] <buzzkill> hey everyone. Just got my R-Pi. Having a bit of an issue... maybe someone knows how to help me find a solution. Unpackaged, wrote the debian6 image to an SD. Connected Keyboard, Ethernet, HDMI, and power. I have an orange light on the board for power, but no signal to the monitor or link on my switch.
[23:19] <buzzkill> no other led's lit on the board.
[23:19] <traeak> buzzkill: went thortugh this this morning..you have to hack the video
[23:19] <traeak> buzzkill: plug in ether?
[23:19] <gordonDrogon> buzzkill, double-check the SD card on another PC first.
[23:19] <traeak> no ether lights then ?
[23:20] <buzzkill> yes. I have Ethernet plugged in, no other lights on PCB.
[23:20] <trevorman> PWR will always light up if there is power
[23:20] <trevorman> if nothing else lights up and you've got ethernet plugged in then its not booting
[23:20] <traeak> buzzkill: do what gordon said: check sdcard
[23:20] <GabrialDestruir> If it's only the power light, I'd say that the image wasn't written properly

[23:20] <buzzkill> gordonDrogon: what would I check for? Is it an ext3 image?
[23:20] <GabrialDestruir> Plug it into your computer, and see if you can see the boot partition
[23:21] <GabrialDestruir> That's the first step
[23:22] <gordonDrogon> buzzkill, the first partition is FAT32, so readable by anything.
[23:22] <buzzkill> 3 partitions on the image
[23:22] <GabrialDestruir> You'll know it's the boot partition cause it'll have stuff like "start.elf" and "cmdline.txt"
[23:22] <buzzkill> fat32, linux and linux swap
[23:23] <gordonDrogon> you only need to look at the first - see if the files GabrialDestruir mentions are there.
[23:23] <gordonDrogon> if so, then that's a good start.
[23:23] <Butcho> you sure it's orange and not red?
[23:24] <traeak> (swap is eevil)
[23:24] <buzzkill> I have nothing to compare it to on this board, but it certainly looks more orange than red.
[23:24] <GabrialDestruir> Someone needs to build/design a sort of USB Ram thing.
[23:25] <trevorman> the PWR LED is only one colour anyway and will always light up that single colour if power is present

[23:26] <buzzkill> um.. .maybe. Brand new 8GB SanDisk Extreme III
[23:26] * gordonDrogon thinking of the 'OK' led..
[23:26] <trevorman> yup :)
[23:26] <trevorman> probably can take over the ethernet LEDs as well
[23:27] <gordonDrogon> buzzkill, what class?
[23:27] <trevorman> the SMC chip talks about how you can turn them into GPIOs
[23:27] <buzzkill> 10
[23:27] <gordonDrogon> buzzkill, class 10's might not work...
[23:27] <buzzkill> bought it for use with my Nikon, but didn't use it yet.
[23:27] <GabrialDestruir> So you could program the Ok LED to do various stuff?
[23:27] <buzzkill> D'oh!
[23:27] <trevorman> GabrialDestruir: yes
[23:27] <buzzkill> well, hell's bells.
[23:27] <gordonDrogon> GabrialDestruir, not quite - it's used by the kernel to indicate SD card activity..
[23:28] <trevorman> 1. check that you wrote the image correctly. 2. try a different SD card. 3. try updating the bootloader files.

[23:43] <trevorman> 3.3V, 5V, ground, I2C, SPI, 3.3V UART and a bunch of GPIOs
[23:43] * passstab glares at GabrialDestruir
[23:43] <chaoshax> Probably safer actually doing that.
[23:43] <trevorman> safer than what?
[23:44] <chaoshax> Powering from the headers, just incase you plug it in the wrong connectors.
[23:44] <chaoshax> = Nasty

[23:44] * PiBot sets mode +v tsdedst
[23:45] <GabrialDestruir> What would suck the most in my opinon is the wait after you fry your Pi
[23:46] <trevorman> the expansion connector doesn't have the overcurrent or reverse voltage protection. you'd need to bypass the USB fuses as well if you wanted to power 100mA+ devices
[23:46] * ahven (~ahven@jutukas.saarlane.ee) Quit (Ping timeout: 265 seconds)
[23:46] <chaoshax> Oh I was talking about powering the pi
[23:46] <chaoshax> From headers instead of usb.
[23:46] <chaoshax> Not powering other devices from the pi
[23:46] * Compy (Compy@c-98-251-52-68.hsd1.ga.comcast.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[23:46] * PiBot sets mode +v Compy
[23:46] <trevorman> ah okay
[23:47] <trevorman> then yeah just 5V into the expansion connector will be fine for you
[23:47] <chaoshax> Yeah I was saying that it's not particularly advisable just incase you plug into the wrong header
[23:47] * ahven (~ahven@jutukas.saarlane.ee) has joined #raspberrypi
[23:47] * PiBot sets mode +v ahven
[23:47] <chaoshax> Anyway night
[23:48] <trevorman> night
[23:48] <GabrialDestruir> I wonder if you could setup a fuse system or something that'd sit between the Pi and a breadboard, accidently short something you blow a fuse instead of a Pi

[23:49] <trevorman> its already there on the rpi for the usb power input

[23:50] * PiBot sets mode +v Geoffers1601
[23:50] <trevorman> its not really going to protect very much though
[23:51] <traeak> okay compilation ont he rpi is extremely painful
[23:52] <trevorman> yes
[23:52] <GabrialDestruir> I wouldn't say painful..... just needlessly slow.

[23:54] <buzzkill> ok, different SD card (Class 6, slowest I've got). Same result.
[23:54] <buzzkill> what was that about hacking the video?
[23:55] <traeak> if you aren't getting lghts on the ethernet
[23:55] <Butcho> tried using composite?
[23:55] <trevorman> its not booting at all so HDMI or composite shouldn't matter
[23:55] <buzzkill> I do not think I have the right cabling for composite.
[23:56] <trevorman> it should boot without any display attahced at all
[23:56] <traeak> it definitely should
[23:56] <buzzkill> typical boot time?
[23:56] <buzzkill> maybe I am just impatient?
[23:56] <trevorman> less than a minute?
[23:56] <buzzkill> ok, then not impatient.
[23:56] <traeak> i screwed up my first card..killed the boot during ssh key generation

[23:57] <buzzkill> no jumpers need setting, right?
[23:57] <traeak> so i couldn't get into it
[23:57] <buzzkill> your first card? I have been waiting since March.
[23:57] <buzzkill> this is my first card.
[23:57] <buzzkill> =)
[23:57] <trevorman> you should see some signs of life on the LEDs if its booting
[23:57] <traeak> buzzkill: i started this morning
[23:57] * buzzkill could only order one card.
[23:58] <trevorman> I think traeak means SD card and not RPis
[23:58] * tomeff (~Adium@ip-78-45-50-22.net.upcbroadband.cz) Quit (Ping timeout: 245 seconds)
[23:58] <buzzkill> so, status: one orange led. no display, no other 'life'. new SD card, Class 6.
[23:58] <trevorman> what PSU you using?
[23:59] <trevorman> you get really weird behaviour if voltage is low
[23:59] <buzzkill> the one recommended by Newark.
[23:59] <buzzkill> plugged into a UPS
