[0:00] <buzzkill> can I use an iPhone USB => Power connector?
[0:00] <trevorman> yeah
[0:00] <buzzkill> or will that make the smoke happen?
[0:00] <syadnom> it will work fine
[0:00] <trevorman> it'll be fine
[0:01] <buzzkill> same result.
[0:01] <buzzkill> charger was 5V 1000mA
[0:01] <gordonDrogon> buzzkill, were you able to read the SD card in your PC OK?
[0:01] <buzzkill> yes
[0:01] <gordonDrogon> did you try updating?
[0:01] <buzzkill> and update the files (boot firmware)
[0:01] <buzzkill> yes.
[0:01] <gordonDrogon> ok
[0:01] <gordonDrogon> sorry - I was AFK for a bit.
[0:01] * romaxa (~romaxa@ has joined #raspberrypi
[0:01] * PiBot sets mode +v romaxa
[0:02] <traeak> seems the mele compiles ~3x faster (c++ code)
[0:02] <gordonDrogon> what video output?
[0:02] <romaxa> which k-module I need to enable for ethernet over USB/OTG enabling? is that supported?
[0:02] <buzzkill> HDMI
[0:02] <gordonDrogon> nothing at all - not even a square with rainbow colours?
[0:03] * hamitron (~hamitron@just.screw-the.eu) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:03] * PiBot sets mode +v hamitron
[0:03] <buzzkill> nada
[0:03] <buzzkill> just an orange light on the PCB
[0:03] <gordonDrogon> anyone local to you with a working Pi to check with?
[0:04] <GabrialDestruir> Near the edge of the board?
[0:04] <GabrialDestruir> by that I mean the edge closer to the ethernet port
[0:04] <buzzkill> nope
[0:04] * Guest91526 (~alien@user-5AF407B5.broadband.tesco.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:04] * PiBot sets mode +v Guest91526
[0:04] <buzzkill> I live in a wasteland of tech.
[0:04] <buzzkill> =)
[0:05] <buzzkill> GabrialDestruir: were you asking me that question?
[0:05] <GabrialDestruir> Mhm
[0:05] <trevorman> romaxa: the USB power input is only for power
[0:05] <nidO> buzzkill where is your wasteland?
[0:05] * Guest91526 is now known as alien2601
[0:05] <romaxa> trevorman: ah, ok, so network only throug ETH port...
[0:05] <trevorman> yeah
[0:05] <buzzkill> GabrialDestruir: the orange LED is between the audio and the USB
[0:05] <trevorman> or USB dongle
[0:06] * Syliss (~Syliss@adsl-99-23-240-243.dsl.chi2ca.sbcglobal.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:06] * PiBot sets mode +v Syliss
[0:06] <GabrialDestruir> http://rastrack.ryanteck.org.uk/
[0:06] <trevorman> the USB power input doesn't actually have the data lines connected at all
[0:06] <buzzkill> I am in Northern Virginia. But at the very southern part. Nothing here but us rednecks.
[0:06] * koda (~vittorio@host87-48-dynamic.10-188-r.retail.telecomitalia.it) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:06] * PiBot sets mode +v koda
[0:06] <GabrialDestruir> Right, but is it closer to the USB edge or closer to the audio
[0:06] <alien2601> Has anyone here tried to use a USB wireless dongle with the standard Debian OS that comes shipped with Pi?
[0:06] <nidO> plenty of us
[0:07] <alien2601> Works? Have any models that work easily?
[0:07] <trevorman> GabrialDestruir: its silk screened so its going to be the power led
[0:07] * zimba12 (~quassel@scspc227.cs.uwaterloo.ca) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:07] * PiBot sets mode +v zimba12
[0:07] <zimba12> hi
[0:07] <friggle> if anyone has a wireless usb dongle that has free firmware and could let me know exactly what you need to get it to work on my latest wheezy image, I can try to make sure it will work out of the box
[0:08] <buzzkill> GabrialDestruir: closer to the audio.
[0:08] <zimba12> is there some xbmc release that works? I am not able to watch movies with the debian distro
[0:08] <GabrialDestruir> I've never seen the power led orange though, the only orange one on mine is the one closest to the USB edge, which makes me wonder if it's a QC issue.
[0:08] * markus_ (~markus@h-34-172.a336.priv.bahnhof.se) Quit (Ping timeout: 245 seconds)
[0:08] <buzzkill> It is just the pwr LED
[0:08] <trevorman> GabrialDestruir: its reddish/orangeish to me
[0:09] <trevorman> thats mainly because its a tiny SMD LED
[0:09] <buzzkill> yea, I guess it _could_ be red...
[0:09] <buzzkill> but an orange red.
[0:09] <buzzkill> =)
[0:09] <GabrialDestruir> Eh, mine looks clearly red to me, I guess it would depend how people view colors xD
[0:09] <trevorman> its silk screened anyway so thats def the PWR LED
[0:09] <Helldesk> ehhhh... I'm trying to install openelec but it requires a tool called "syslinux" that does not exist, at least not in debian (arm)
[0:09] <nidO> alien2601 most will work, realtek RTL8188CUS based devices are common (as theyre tiny + cheap), they dont work out of the box but there are precompiled modules + tons of guides floating round
[0:09] <nidO> can get it working within a couple of minutes
[0:09] <Helldesk> there's syslinux-common but that did not help
[0:09] <trevorman> Helldesk: you're trying to install the x86 version of openelec
[0:10] <trevorman> Helldesk: or you mean that createsd script?
[0:10] <trevorman> never actually used that >.> lemme read it again
[0:10] <nidO> friggle: that'd be a good one to get working on wheezy if not already too, seems to be a fairly popular adaptor
[0:10] <Helldesk> create_sdcard wants it
[0:10] * jelatta (~jelatta@c-24-2-159-36.hsd1.vt.comcast.net) Quit (Ping timeout: 260 seconds)
[0:10] <sraue> Helldesk, you are sure?
[0:11] <alien2601> nidO: Great recommendation ... will see if I can get one working .. thanks for the headsup !!
[0:11] <Butcho> link me a wireless usb dongle that works right now without any fuss and I'll buy it
[0:11] <GabrialDestruir> That doesn't sound right.... anyways, buzzkill, check the map, maybe you'll find someone close to you with a Pi
[0:11] <Helldesk> I will double check if I downloaded the right version of openelec... one interesting thing was that INSTALL (that is supposed to contain the instructions) is 0 bytes long
[0:11] * blkhawk is now known as blkaway
[0:11] <friggle> nidO: I don't have a wireless dongle annoyingly, and haven't had someone voluntee to work with me to get their's working out the box
[0:11] * Syliss (~Syliss@adsl-99-23-240-243.dsl.chi2ca.sbcglobal.net) Quit (Quit: Syliss)
[0:11] <Jef91> Does anyone know if this image is armel or armhf? http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=50&t=8071
[0:11] <Helldesk> http://wiki.openelec.tv/index.php?title=Installing_OpenELEC_on_Raspberry_Pi I did download the latest build linked there
[0:11] <Jef91> It doesn't say on that page
[0:12] <buzzkill> one person...
[0:12] <Helldesk> http://sources.openelec.tv/tmp/image/openelec-rpi/
[0:12] <trevorman> sraue: yeah it def wants it
[0:12] <trevorman> its present in git
[0:12] <nidO> alien2601: Micronext MN-WD552B and Edimax EW-7811Un are examples of adaptors using that chip
[0:12] <Helldesk> well, there's a newer one already, I'll get that
[0:12] <friggle> Jef91: armel
[0:12] <Jef91> Awesome!
[0:12] <trevorman> Helldesk: just chop out the bit about syslinux from the script
[0:12] <Jef91> Exactly what I need friggle
[0:13] <friggle> Jef91: great. (I'm asb and thus posted that thread ;))
[0:13] <nidO> friggle: i've got 2 pis and 2 micronext adaptors, i'll get wheezy up on one of them
[0:13] <Jef91> friggle fantastic - I plan to build Bodhi Linux for Pi on top of that image
[0:13] * amelia_ (~amelia@host-2-100-213-142.as13285.net) has joined #raspberrypi

[0:14] * [SkG] (~SkG@unaffiliated/skg/x-897332) Quit (Quit: ( www.nnscript.com :: NoNameScript 4.22 :: www.esnation.com ))
[0:14] <sraue> Helldesk, trevorman, i see, sorry... comment out this lines, its not needed
[0:14] <Butcho> so Edimax EW-7811Un is a good adapter?
[0:14] <nidO> Butcho: it wont work out of the box on the current debian install but takes like 2 minutes to get going, there're loads of guides available
[0:15] <buzzkill> ok. Just so I have everything else correct... I should just write the image to the SD card, plug in SD, USB Keyboard, Ethernet, HDMI, and then power... and all is _supposed_ to go, right?
[0:15] <nidO> i'm pretty sure someone on the forum's put together an auto setup script for it to
[0:15] <Jef91> will that image fit on a 4GB SD card friggle?
[0:15] * jelatta (~jelatta@c-24-2-159-36.hsd1.vt.comcast.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:15] * PiBot sets mode +v jelatta
[0:15] <friggle> Jef91: it will fit on a 2gb card

[0:16] <Jef91> 4 is the smallest I own, so also perfect
[0:16] * unknownbliss is now known as UKB|Sleep
[0:16] <Jef91> Whew
[0:16] <Jef91> that is nifty
[0:16] <Jef91> I might have to steal that for some of my other ARM builds
[0:16] <trevorman> buzzkill: yes
[0:16] * ssvb (~ssvb@a88-114-220-213.elisa-laajakaista.fi) Quit (Ping timeout: 265 seconds)
[0:16] <friggle> in fairness the fedora 14 release had that from day one. It's one thing it had going for it :)
[0:16] <trevorman> buzzkill: what USB keyboard you trying?
[0:16] <buzzkill> Dell
[0:16] <trevorman> buzzkill: actually, just try power + ethernet + SD card. nothing else
[0:17] * maninvan (~maninvan@ Quit (Ping timeout: 248 seconds)
[0:17] <buzzkill> Power + Ethernet + SD card = no love
[0:17] <alien2601> nidO: thats great was already eyeing up Micronext ..
[0:17] * Fatal_eXception0 (~Fatal_eXc@ has joined #raspberrypi
[0:17] * PiBot sets mode +v Fatal_eXception0
[0:18] <trevorman> buzzkill: hmm. not sure then. its definitely not booting at all but don't know whether you're just really unlucky with SD cards or something is broken
[0:18] <trevorman> buzzkill: what image did you write on the card?
[0:18] <buzzkill> debian6-19-04-2012
[0:19] * nullvo1d (~null@eud00001-2.eurotivity.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:19] * PiBot sets mode +v nullvo1d
[0:19] <sraue> trevorman, Helldesk fixed in git
[0:19] <buzzkill> used WinDiskimg to write it... or whatever that is called.
[0:19] <buzzkill> dd did not seem to work as expected.
[0:19] <trevorman> sraue: didn't affect me anyway as I always just made the card manually :)
[0:20] <Helldesk> sraue: what is?
[0:20] <buzzkill> and, the class 6 SD is on the list of 'Working SD Cards'
[0:21] <Butcho> to get my class 6 running, I had to run rpi-update on a linux server I have.
[0:21] <buzzkill> Is there a different image I _should/could_ try?
[0:21] <sraue> Helldesk, change the create_sdcard script and remove the lines 68-82 like here: https://github.com/OpenELEC/OpenELEC.tv/commit/60346ff4a4d5f75c30c02ce37f926204d2a101fe

[1:03] <trevorman> cehteh: the RPi only does single link HDMI and that monitor looks like it wants dual link DVI
[1:04] <cehteh> nope its single link too
[1:04] <trevorman> hm
[1:04] <trevorman> not sure then! talk to the RPi foundation and offer yourself as a tester for 2K resolutions :D

[1:05] <traeak> ugh sound
[1:05] <traeak> i put windowmaker on it
[1:05] <traeak> turned on wireframe move/resize
[1:05] <traeak> it's fairly acceptable
[1:06] <traeak> for fun i grabbed "jagged alliance 2" straticelli svn, downloaded, compiled and ran it
[1:06] <traeak> slow but acceptable
[1:06] <traeak> 1024x768 mode
[1:06] <trevorman> looks like 2048x1152 is actually slightly past the limit for single link but a lot of stuff will drive it anyway as they're exceeding the spec
[1:06] <traeak> that mode probably isn't in the firmware

[1:49] <buzzkill> very few log lines printed
[1:49] <buzzkill> using ARM/GPU memory split 224/32MB

[2:17] <DeviceZer0> can I use a usb phone charger to power the rp? I think I have a phone charger that is just a usb cable. I know my old blackberry has a wall adapter that you plug a usb cord into.
[2:17] <DeviceZer0> I just dont want to try it and have it fry the thing...i just got it in the mail today :)
[2:18] <IT_Sean> As long as it outputs at least 700ma
[2:18] <Fuggin> ^
[2:18] <bbb^> and 5volts
[2:18] <bbb^> :)
[2:18] <Fuggin> ^
[2:18] <IT_Sean> yes, and the USB standard 5v
[2:18] <Helldesk> as long as it puts out 5 volts DC and is capable of putting out and amp or so at minimum, you're good to go
[2:19] <bbb^> I had my pi running at work of a nokia usb charger only rated for 500ma lol
[2:19] <Helldesk> sraue: heh, just installed the NASA TV addon and played the JSC stream for a few seconds; then it crashed back to the main screen and now it seems to have cropped the sides off my screen
[2:20] <DeviceZer0> hmm. I'm in the usa and it plugs into a normal wall outlet....i dont know much about this.
[2:20] <Helldesk> so it's liek 640x480 when it was 720x480 (still rocking just the composite video so I can't do better for now)
[2:20] <DeviceZer0> I'm assuming those numbers are pretty standard in these types of things?
[2:21] <IT_Sean> well, the USB standard is 5v. So, unless it's a poorly regulated supply, that should be fine
[2:22] <IT_Sean> But check the current rating. you NEED it to be capable of supplying 700ma or better to properly run the Pi. It should say on the adapter what the max. output current is.
[2:22] <Helldesk> DeviceZer0: well, as far as chargers go, they usually ought to be able to power a raspberry pi because charging batteries is a current-hungry business
[2:22] <SpeedEvil> Helldesk: Well - you're assuming that all that glitters is gold there.

[2:23] * PiBot sets mode +v Laogeodritt
[2:23] <Helldesk> a plain charger is not an intelligent device, they just put out current up to their capability and try to regulate it at their rated voltage
[2:24] <Helldesk> the cheaper they are, the worse they fare
[2:24] <bbb^> I am powering mines at home of a usb port on my pc (which are rated quite high for USB charging) - doesn't cold boot everytime with HDMI connected ... but does after a reboot.
[2:24] <plugwash> The trouble with chargers is that the standard way of limiting charging current per "USB battery charging" is to let the voltage drop off
[2:24] <plugwash> So an underpowered charger will work fine for charging a phone but will cause strange issues when used with the Pi
[2:24] <bbb^> just try it :P if it works it works, if doesn't it dosn't ...
[2:25] <ReggieUK> it'll just take longer to charge the phone
[2:25] <ReggieUK> which is generally ok as they expect you to charge over night
[2:26] <DeviceZer0> ah
[2:26] <ReggieUK> or at least historically
[2:26] <Helldesk> since you will need a powered usb hub in any case if you want to plug in more than just a keyboard and a mouse, get an "active" (powered) hub with a good power supply powering it, and plug the raspberry pi with a full-to-micro USB cable into one of its ports
[2:26] <Helldesk> so you only need one wall wart
[2:26] <DeviceZer0> well looks like I may not have all the proper cables on hand anyways...might have to wait to pick up a hdmi cable...though I had one that would connect to this monitor...but its not looking like I do

[2:27] <Helldesk> a power supply that maintains specified voltage within limits of the specification up to its rated output current :)
[2:27] <Helldesk> so... get a known brand computer PSU and hack into its +5V line

[2:35] <ReggieUK> SpeedEvil, question about charging/using usb instead
[2:35] <ReggieUK> will the phone draw as much current as it can lay it's hands on?
[2:36] <SpeedEvil> Generally not.
[2:36] <ReggieUK> as you implied (I think) that the charger having a voltage drop at rated current implied that the phone relies on the charger and just grabs what it needs
[2:36] <SpeedEvil> Most phones will only draw up to 100mA, then negotiate for more as a mass storage or empty mass storage device, for example
[2:36] <SpeedEvil> unless D+ and D- are shorted
[2:37] <Helldesk> the phone will draw as much current as it needs to run and what its battery wants in addition
[2:37] <SpeedEvil> then it will draw as much as it wants - and may do low voltage sensing to moderate its needs
[2:37] <Helldesk> a li-poly cell will not draw constant current
[2:37] <ReggieUK> that explains why it's taken hours to charge my phone via this charger cable I got plugged into the usb
[2:37] <ReggieUK> whereas the 800ma charger is done in less than an hour
[2:37] <SpeedEvil> Phone batteries do not get connected directly to USB - ever
[2:37] <SpeedEvil> Indeed
[2:38] <ReggieUK> that cable is getting culled then as it's next to useless :D
[2:38] <Helldesk> charging li-polys (which the majority of today's phone batteries are I believe) is a pretty involved task
[2:38] <SpeedEvil> Possibly.
[2:39] <ReggieUK> Helldesk, indeed
[2:39] <Helldesk> you usually apply 4.2 volts to each cell and start to monitor the current draw
[2:39] <Helldesk> preferably you would already have some idea about its rated capacity and count the amp hours that get put in
[2:39] <SpeedEvil> Limit to 4.2V, if the cell is over 3V, and then turn off charge when it tapers to a nominal value.
[2:39] <Helldesk> (and what gets put out)
[2:40] * koda (~vittorio@host87-48-dynamic.10-188-r.retail.telecomitalia.it) Quit (Quit: koda)
[2:40] <SpeedEvil> Limiting charge current to 0.5C or so
[2:40] <Helldesk> you stop charging when the current drawn by the cell drops to 10% of the original charging current of an empty cell
[2:40] <ReggieUK> 0.5c for current? c as in centigrade?
[2:40] <shirro> And keep a bucket of sand handy
[2:41] <Helldesk> that's very roughly the charging process of a generic lithium ion battery
[2:41] <Helldesk> C as in the nominal capacity
[2:41] <ReggieUK> ahh :)
[2:41] <ReggieUK> ok
[2:41] <Helldesk> so 0.5 C of a 1000 mAh (one amp hour) battery would be 500 mA
[2:41] <SpeedEvil> yes
[2:42] <Helldesk> li-ion/li-poly batteries should not be discarged below 3 volts per cell
[2:42] <Helldesk> they will get damaged and lose the ability to hold charge
[2:42] <dirty_d> more than that isnt it?
[2:42] <Helldesk> same goes for overcharging
[2:43] <SpeedEvil> It's under 3, from many makers.
[2:43] <SpeedEvil> 2.7 is a common lower limit.
[2:43] <ReggieUK> so essentially, using a phone charger is a lottery as to whether you're actually going to get one that can sustain the voltage at the current the pi needs?
[2:43] <Helldesk> well, 3 V is the rule of thumb I've generally stuck to, but of course you have to check the data sheet
[2:43] <SpeedEvil> ReggieUK: yes
[2:43] <ReggieUK> oh wonderful :)

[2:43] <ReggieUK> so using microUSB might just bite people in the backside?
[2:44] <Helldesk> I charge to 3 V in my Lipos in RC use as below that the voltage drops so rapidly it's not any use to keep drawing several amps from a battery
[2:44] <Helldesk> ReggieUK: well, YMMV
[2:44] <Helldesk> it might put some reliance on hardware that isn't always up to scratch

[3:24] <ReggieUK> they're only ever going to do 25MB/s if the drivers are keeping within proper spec
[3:24] <ReggieUK> or unless the foundation does a pi2 with teh 1.8v circuitry
[3:24] <ReggieUK> or if someone hacks up a power board and some gpio code to do it
[3:25] <McGooch> ReggieUK: wow, would the GPIO have the throughput for that?
[3:26] <ReggieUK> of course, I think you may be misunderstanding the complexity of switching a gpio once ;)
[3:26] <shirro> McGooch: It just needs to toggle the speed
[3:26] <shirro> I mean the voltage
[3:27] <McGooch> But does the GPIO get updated at the full cpu clock rate?
[3:27] <ReggieUK> the clock rate is fairly irrelevant to what it's being used for
[3:28] <ReggieUK> the single gpio pin will just be used to switch a transistor or a small circuit on
[3:28] * stuntmachine (~stuntmach@unaffiliated/stuntmachine) Quit (Quit: Colloquy for iPad - http://colloquy.mobi)
[3:28] <ReggieUK> not sure if it's something we can do ourselves though
[3:28] <McGooch> Isn't that only true if the update rate between the GPIO and the CPU is fast enough?
[3:28] <ReggieUK> depends on the existing power circuit
[3:29] * MystX (~MystX@49-50-247-177.a.hd.net.nz) has joined #raspberrypi
[3:29] <ReggieUK> not at all
[3:29] <ReggieUK> we just want to switch a pin once
[3:29] <McGooch> If the GPIO is basically direct to the CPU then thats pretty cool
[3:29] <trevorman> McGooch: its just a toggle. on = level translation off = nothing
[3:29] <trevorman> you're not toggling it at 50mhz
[3:29] * PiBot sets mode +v MystX
[3:29] <ReggieUK> we're not interested in clock speed of anything particularly
[3:30] <shirro> you do it once based on card capability or something then leave it
[3:30] <McGooch> I've obviously misunderstood what you were intending to do with the GPIO
[3:30] <ReggieUK> indeed :)
[3:31] <ReggieUK> basically, sd cards start at 3.3v and low speed
[3:31] <ReggieUK> then the controller queries the card for it's capabilities and other information
[3:31] <ReggieUK> if it sees that it's a card that requires it, it will turn off the 3.3v power and apply 1.8v instead
[3:32] <ReggieUK> well, that's what's supposed to happen
[3:32] <ReggieUK> but it doesnt' because the circuit to do the switching is missing
[3:32] <ReggieUK> so in theory we can just use a gpio pin to turn the 1.8v voltage source on and off
[3:33] <ReggieUK> could be done easily with a simple transistor
[3:33] <McGooch> Ok, I get it now. :)
[3:33] <ReggieUK> but it's how the 3.3v is derived and if it's controllable via the pi or if it's even accesible
[3:33] <ReggieUK> that's going to be the more interesting part
[3:34] <McGooch> For some reason I though you were suggesting connecting a secondary SD reader to the GPIO port and driving it manually.
[3:34] <ReggieUK> for us to retrofit our own pi, we'd need to be able to control the 3.3v power too
[3:34] <ReggieUK> ahh
[3:34] <ReggieUK> now i see why you were confused
[3:34] <ReggieUK> and just to fry your noodle
[3:34] <plugwash> mmm, presumablly you need to lower the voltage not just to the card but also to the relavent IO bank on the SOC
[3:34] <ReggieUK> it should entirely be possible to run SD cards via the gpio :D
[3:34] <trevorman> plugwash: yeah
[3:35] <ReggieUK> plugwash, well, not entirely sure on that one
[3:35] <ReggieUK> because people have been dialing in all sorts of emmc clock speeds into their config.txt
[3:36] <ReggieUK> and anything over 50Mhz should in theory require 1.8v
[3:36] <trevorman> you're going to need to do level translation
[3:36] <plugwash> or I guess you could use a seperate level translator but that may cause problems of it's own
[3:36] <ReggieUK> I'm not so sure you will
[3:36] * dnstbr (~dnstbr@ has joined #raspberrypi
[3:36] * PiBot sets mode +v dnstbr
[3:36] <trevorman> ReggieUK: thats out of spec though. you're overclocking the card
[3:36] <ReggieUK> the controller should deal with it
[3:37] <ReggieUK> indeed, that most certainly is out of spec
[3:37] <plugwash> generally both ends of a connection need to be running at the same voltage
[3:37] <plugwash> so if you are going to lower the SD card voltage then you will most likely also need to either lower the voltage to the IO bank on the SOC or put level translation in place
[3:37] <plugwash> unless the SOC has internal IO voltage switching or something
[3:37] <McGooch> ReggieUK: where you find details on the SD specifications? What would the Pi need to support SDXC?
[3:37] <ReggieUK> are you talking for the gpio?
[3:37] <trevorman> putting 3.3V into an SD card thats being powered by 1.8V is not going to be a good idea
[3:38] <ReggieUK> to support sdxc I believe it needs 1.8v for the higher speeds
[3:38] <trevorman> hope those clamping diodes work well
[3:38] <ReggieUK> but *all* sd cards are capable of being run at 25/50Mhz
[3:38] <ReggieUK> trevorman, agreed
[3:39] <ReggieUK> but I'm guessing that the arasan emmc controller deals with all the levels
[3:39] <plugwash> and i'm guessing that it doesn't
[3:39] <SpeedEvil> External voltage switching woul dbe the usual way to do this
[3:39] <SpeedEvil> for the power.
[3:39] <plugwash> i'm guessing that it needs an external feed of the voltage the SD card is being powered off
[3:40] <SpeedEvil> Switching using on-chip regulators or switches for the SD power would be enormously expensive in terms of area
[3:40] <trevorman> there are some pins that power the I/O on the SoC but we don't know what does what

[3:53] <trevorman> it'll need a good quality PCB to be made. you're not going to knock this up with a bit of veroboard. 6 data lines and most of them are bidirectional that you need to translate without too much skew
[3:53] <trevorman> 50mhz+ as well

[4:06] <Helldesk> huh, tried the arch linux image on the 4 GB card I've been using and it won't boot up at all
[4:06] <shirro> Simon will rewrite it though. I want something that works now
[4:06] <trevorman> i'm curious as to why broadcom say that its 80mhz for a good reason though. it would be helpful if they said why lol
[4:06] <ReggieUK> shirro, indeed
[4:06] <trevorman> if it was "oh if you set it to 81mhz then there is a 1/256 chance the rpi will implode" then yeah we know not to do it
[4:06] <ReggieUK> this is a fantastic proof of concept and also shows the way forward
[4:07] <ReggieUK> trevorman, zgreg beat me to coding the patches but I'd come to the conclusion that the driver setup was just wrong
[4:07] <ReggieUK> 80Mhz/20Mhz is not going to get anywhere near 25/50Mhz, ever
[4:07] <trevorman> well yeah but they said its like that for a reason

[4:08] * PiBot sets mode +v AlcariTheMad
[4:08] <SpeedEvil> Maybe something like bus corruption at non-integer core clock/mmc clock or something
[4:08] <trevorman> just some clarification as to why its unusual would be nice
[4:08] <trevorman> yeah
[4:08] * meshuga- (fn@ Quit (Ping timeout: 246 seconds)
[4:08] <shirro> Ok. Now how do I get it faster than 19MB/s? We think 25 is the limit within spec, is that right?
[4:08] <ReggieUK> 20mhz is mmc clock speed
[4:08] <ReggieUK> 25MB/s is the absolute theoretical limit
[4:09] <ReggieUK> but you'll have overheads
[4:09] <shirro> So 19 is pretty good then
[4:09] <ReggieUK> 19 is very good :)
[4:09] <ReggieUK> and of course, now no one needs to overclock to get modest speeds from their cards
[4:09] <trevorman> shirro: that with a non overclocked emmc core?
[4:10] <trevorman> ReggieUK: urgh yeah. need to update the wiki about that
[4:10] <Helldesk> hmm
[4:10] <shirro> trevorman: init_emmc_clock=50000000
[4:10] <ReggieUK> if anything the emmc clock is now underclocked
[4:10] <trevorman> somebody changed it and just said hey overclock this and it'll be faster! but didn't actually give any other background
[4:10] <trevorman> ReggieUK: broadcom say set it between 50 and 100
[4:10] <ReggieUK> that was the original 'hack' to get more speed out of it
[4:10] <Helldesk> put a start.elf from debian onto the arch boot sector on the sd card and still nothing...
[4:10] <ReggieUK> it shouldn't be *any* faster than 50Mhz
[4:10] <Helldesk> I suppose this Sandisk card could be a bum one
[4:11] <shirro> trevorman: the overclock hack was struggling to get better than 12MB/s
[4:11] <ReggieUK> because of the cards and the missing 1.8v
[4:11] <ReggieUK> we basically have 2 speeds that the cards will run at now
[4:11] <trevorman> ReggieUK: "The frequency of this clock should be selected between 50 MHz and 100
[4:11] <trevorman> MHz." its not the actual clock that the card runs off. this is before the multipler
[4:11] <shirro> Could a card start at 1.8V if the interface was hardwired to the voltage?
[4:12] <SpeedEvil> shirro: It violates spec. This isn't of course a no.
[4:12] <ReggieUK> default speed (25Mhz, yeilding upto 12.5MB/s) and high speed (50Mhz, yeilding upto 25MB/s)
[4:12] <trevorman> shirro: the SoC would still be driving it at 3.3V and that'd be a bad idea

[4:14] <trevorman> ReggieUK: ehh seen bigger. look over at the composite socket ;)
[4:14] <trevorman> I look at the SD socket and think somebody has broken off the usual metal shield

[4:25] <trevorman> JTAG is listed as an alternative function for some of the GPIO pins
[4:26] <ReggieUK> trevorman, thanks for pointing it out!
[4:27] <ReggieUK> so there was actually no need for either myself or gordonDrogon to think about having to implement it via gpio :D
[4:27] <SpeedEvil> you can probably use the SD as GPIO too.
[4:27] <SpeedEvil> But...
[4:28] <trevorman> lol
[4:28] <trevorman> this is similar to the card detect switch that is wired up
[4:28] <trevorman> great that you can detect that somebody has yanked out your boot card....
[4:28] <ReggieUK> welllll
[4:28] <trevorman> wiring up the WP switch would have been more helpful
[4:28] <ReggieUK> only if you query the gpio
[4:29] <ReggieUK> which the driver doesn't so the card detect pin is quite useless right now
[4:29] <ReggieUK> but in theory it could be useful for hotplugging
[4:29] <trevorman> so it can print out "AHHH!!! PUT THAT BACK BEFORE YOU REBOOT!!!"
[4:30] <ReggieUK> it's more useful if you are running the rootfs from elsewhere and want to put a different card in
[4:30] <ReggieUK> but admittedly, it's usefulness is limited
[4:31] <Helldesk> sd cards rely on the thing reading it respecting the write protect "switch", it does nothing by itself and mini- and microsd cards don't even have them
[4:31] <trevorman> Helldesk: yeah. its just a little plastic tab
[4:31] <Helldesk> how fast is a "class 4" sd card?

[4:32] <Helldesk> I'm writing back the image I backed up from one earlier and it's going onto it at 3.5 MB/s

[5:49] <McGooch> Hi
[5:50] <RITRedbeard> Anyone having any interesting adventures with their Raspberries lately?
[5:51] <McGooch> I got mine working, but don't know enough about linux yet to get the new patches in.
[5:51] <Darth_X> I want to buy one
[5:51] <McGooch> I would like to apply the SD speed fix patch once I figure out how to compile it
[5:51] <RITRedbeard> I've moved on to Allwinner A10 platform.
[5:51] <RITRedbeard> But we're all on the same team.
[5:52] <McGooch> Darth_X: I hope backlog gets cleared up soon, I want another on :)
[5:52] <RITRedbeard> Should be here in early July for me, my A10/M802

[5:55] <RITRedbeard> It was $75 USD
[5:55] <mikey_w> The A13 is closer to the price point.
[5:55] <RITRedbeard> but it was worth it.
[5:56] <McGooch> At $75 I care if I break it.
[5:56] <McGooch> The R-Pi I'm going to build it into things :)
[5:56] <RITRedbeard> Eh.
[5:56] <mikey_w> A10 development is totally unorganized.
[5:56] <RITRedbeard> lol
[5:56] <RITRedbeard> Funny, those guys say the same things about you.

[5:57] <Syliss> lol
[5:57] <Scepterr> is there a need for it ?
[5:57] <McGooch> I don't need it
[5:58] <RITRedbeard> Also, building the Pi into things just screams "Arduino Mentality"

[5:58] <McGooch> Yes it does, and nothing wrong with that
[5:58] <McGooch> \
[5:58] <Syliss> i want too tho
[5:58] <RITRedbeard> I don't plan to build an alarm clock with the m802.
[5:58] <RITRedbeard> I plan to use it for computing.
[5:59] <RITRedbeard> That's what I mean.
[5:59] <McGooch> Bah, I have a computer for that
[5:59] <Syliss> i wouldn't use the pi for an alarm clock
[5:59] <McGooch> This one
[5:59] <Syliss> I've used mine as media pc

[6:00] <Syliss> thats all crap
[6:00] <RITRedbeard> If you want I can do a review or whatever.
[6:00] <Syliss> RITRedbeard: i know it works
[6:01] <RITRedbeard> I mean how well it is, build quality, etc
[6:01] <RITRedbeard> especially if you managed to snag one for $50
[6:01] <RITRedbeard> yum yum yum!

[6:04] <Syliss> yes
[6:04] <RITRedbeard> for the motorola atrix?

[6:08] <Syliss> i plan on getting an A for the lap dock too since i can keep the B at home and use the A when out
[6:08] <RITRedbeard> weird question, what are you going to use the GPIO for?
[6:08] <RITRedbeard> I mean theoretically older computers have GPIO, it's just called a parallel port and not as easy... bit of circuitry required - not much :)

[6:09] <Syliss> i dont really
[6:10] <McGooch> Not sure, generally when I needed GPIO the job was really simple and something like a teensy made a lot more sense. I don't have anything that needs GPIO and a lot of horsepower yet.
[6:10] <McGooch> But still a fun option to play with

[6:11] <McGooch> I plan on making some custom controllers for my little console out of old snes controllers but I won't use gpio for that either
[6:12] <McGooch> Again, I would put a teensy in it and use USB
[6:12] <RITRedbeard> I bet the raspberry pi is fast enough to run some DSP applications
[6:12] <RITRedbeard> like guitar rig mobile
[6:12] <McGooch> Easily fast enough
[6:13] <RITRedbeard> not the heavy CPU simulations
[6:13] <RITRedbeard> but the simplier ones, sure
[6:13] <RITRedbeard> "my pedal board is a pi"
[6:13] <McGooch> No, it could do a convolution reverb also
[6:14] <McGooch> The harder DSP would need to be moved to the GPU
[6:14] <McGooch> There are ~24GFLOPs over there that could be used.
[6:14] <RITRedbeard> heh
[6:14] <RITRedbeard> yeah
[6:15] <RITRedbeard> there is a USB GPS unit on market for $30 USD, have you tried it?

[8:04] <Xark> Arch1mede: It is odd that it prints that message (and sometimes does work). I suspect it is a Pi specific issue (kernel is "trying" to reboot).

[8:06] <Xark> Arch1mede: Yeah, I get that. However, I believe the "system halted" and "System restarting" are low-level prints directly from the kernel before it tries to do each (so if you get that, you already are out of userland and into low-level kernel). It is not surprising that Pi may need some special shutdown/restart code.
[8:07] <Xark> So, the way I see it if the kernel didn't do whatever it needed to do to restart reliably, it is a kernel issue. :)
[8:08] <Xark> (Unless something wacky like this hardware is "unable" to restart cleanly - but I am doubting that).

[8:20] * gordonDrogon waves.
[8:20] <gordonDrogon> Morning...
[8:21] <Xark> gordonDrogon: Hi. Did you ever get the Arduino IDE to cooperate? :)
[8:21] <gordonDrogon> Absolutely.
[8:22] <Xark> gordonDrogon: Any "tips" on the serial port?
[8:22] <gordonDrogon> And I can download via serial into the ATmegas too.
[8:22] <gordonDrogon> tips? in what way?
[8:22] <Xark> (also I wonder if they would work for USB Arduino - it does show up as a tty...)
[8:22] <gordonDrogon> USB is OK too...
[8:22] <gordonDrogon> I've had USB arduinos off my Pi for some time now..
[8:23] <Xark> gordonDrogon: Well, I spent a good while but never got the IDE to show any serial (but I am sure it is my issue).
[8:23] <gordonDrogon> Right - that is an issue.
[8:23] <gordonDrogon> You can hack the IDE...
[8:23] <gordonDrogon> Or fake the serial port.
[8:23] <Xark> OK, so there is some hackery required. :)
[8:23] <gordonDrogon> cd /dev ; ln -s ttyAMA0 ttyUSB9
[8:24] <gordonDrogon> then restart the IDE.
[8:24] <gordonDrogon> but you first need to kill getty and edit cmdline.txt to remove all traces of console output.
[8:25] <Xark> Hmm. I did mess around and install some drivers, so when I plug in USB Arduino R3 (not FTDI based), I get a /dev/ttyACM0
[8:26] <Xark> gordonDrogon: Even if I am using that console for syslog?
[8:26] <Xark> gordonDrogon: I don't want my Arduino on GPIO port...
[8:27] <gordonDrogon> you'll need to do the same I think as I don't think the 0018 arduino IDE recognises ACM devices.
[8:27] <Xark> gordonDrogon: Well, I am using 1.0.1 (older ones have too many lib bugs).
[8:27] <Xark> gordonDrogon: You are using Debian version?
[8:27] <gordonDrogon> ok. if your just using USB, then no need to touch the console stuff.
[8:27] <gordonDrogon> Yes. standard debian.
[8:28] <gordonDrogon> so cd /dev ; ln -s ttyACM0 ttyUSB9
[8:28] <gordonDrogon> then look for ttyUSB9 in the IDE.
[8:28] <Xark> gordonDrogon: OK, I'll try that and give it another go (probably hose off my current hack and start fresh again).
[8:29] <gordonDrogon> it's jus a matter of faking it up to make the IDE work OK.
[8:29] <gordonDrogon> when you say lib bugs, I presume you mean in the Arduino supplied ones?
[8:29] <gordonDrogon> and not avr-gcc, etc ?
[8:29] <Xark> gordonDrogon: Yes. I am working on an Arduino lib.
[8:29] <gordonDrogon> ok
[8:30] <gordonDrogon> Have to admit, I've rarely used the Arduino IDE + libs at all.
[8:30] <Xark> gordonDrogon: However, I did find (and report) an AVR binutils bug (lpm rN,Z is incorrectly disassembled as lpm rN,Z+ by objdump -d).
[8:30] <gordonDrogon> I more or less re-write it for my own needs, but for this project, I need to be as close to the standard install as possible.
[8:31] <Xark> gordonDrogon: Yeah, I don't find the Arduino libs "helpful" personally, but I am trying to "play nice" with them. :)
[8:31] <gordonDrogon> I'm writing a guide to use the on-board Pi serial port with a custom board.
[8:32] <gordonDrogon> so if I make it use all the standard stuff, then old-hands will be able to adapt it to their need to use e.g. later IDEs manually installed rather than apt-get ...
[8:32] <Xark> gordonDrogon: Cool. I was considering adding a bit to the wiki saying that it works great with standard Arduino FTDI cable or FTDI "friend" type breakout (since these are 3.3v for signal lines).
[8:33] <gordonDrogon> that's still USB - but that already works if it pops up a /dev/ttyUSBx..
[8:33] <Xark> gordonDrogon: Well, I am saying for use as a serial port (outputting to "putty" on PC).

[8:33] <Xark> IOW RPi GPIO -> FTDI -> PC USB
[8:34] <gordonDrogon> yes, that'll work fine.
[8:34] <Xark> gordonDrogon: Serial terminals are hard to find these days. :)
[8:34] <Xark> gordonDrogon: Yeah. The wiki claims "you need soldering skills", which isn't quite true (but probably a handy "scarecrow" there anyways). :)
[8:34] <gordonDrogon> indeed... probably for the best too - it's 'real' serial ports on PCs that are becoming rarer..
[8:34] <gordonDrogon> what wiki page?

[8:36] <gordonDrogon> This project board connectes directly to the GPIO header, so no soldering needed at that point.
[8:37] <gordonDrogon> ok, thanks. was just wondering if there was any duplication of effort!
[8:37] <Xark> gordonDrogon: Nice. I assume buffers the delicate Pi?
[8:37] <Xark> gordonDrogon: The wiki is pretty light, so I doubt it. :)
[8:37] <gordonDrogon> not to the ATmega - it's all direct 3.3v logic.

[8:38] <gordonDrogon> an issue I have is that at 3.3v the max. clock speed of an aTmega is a shade under 12MHz...
[8:38] <Xark> Ahh, right, custom board you menationed.
[8:38] <Xark> gordonDrogon: Which chip?
[8:39] <gordonDrogon> either 168 or 328p
[8:39] * g0D31u510n (~g0D31u510@ Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[8:39] <gordonDrogon> standard 28-pin DIL one.
[8:39] <Xark> Hmm.
[8:39] <gordonDrogon> maybe a bit old fashioned, but they're cheap enough.
[8:40] <gordonDrogon> I've not used a 168 for some time - forgotten how little RAM they have - oops!
[8:41] <Xark> I was under the impression that 8Mhz was max (but may have been diff chip).
[8:41] <Xark> gordonDrogon: Yeah, not like the 328 has "lots", but the different is significant. :)
[8:41] <Xark> difference*
[8:42] <gordonDrogon> They'll do 20MHz, but need a good 5V supply for that.
[8:42] <gordonDrogon> yes, double :)
[8:42] <gordonDrogon> a massive 2K of RAM :)
[8:42] * fabrice (~fabrice@c-67-180-20-19.hsd1.ca.comcast.net) Quit (Quit: Leaving.)
[8:42] <Xark> Yes, but at 3.3v I thought it was 8Mhz (but I think that may be more for internal osc than chip limit - like on Fio etc.)
[8:42] <gordonDrogon> yes, the internal osc. is 8MHz max.
[8:43] * UnderSampled (~UnderSamp@cpe-174-097-224-178.nc.res.rr.com) Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[8:44] <Xark> Hmm found "At 1.8V you can clock upto 4MHz, at 2.7V upto 10MHz and 4.5V upto 20MHz." so 12Mhz at 3.3v is very believable. :)
[8:44] <gordonDrogon> See page 322 of the manual - it has a graph...
[8:44] <gordonDrogon> bit like overvoltaging the Pi :)
[8:44] <Xark> Thanks. That is the chart I was looking for (but pdf search was failing). :)
[8:45] <gordonDrogon> (assuming you have the same manual as me!)
[8:45] <Xark> Yeah, AVR chips are "robust" I have run my 328 at 25Mhz no problem (and 30Mhz is supposedly not too difficult).

[8:46] <gordonDrogon> :)
[8:46] <gordonDrogon> I did some work on an ArduPilotMega last year - I was surprised they didn't use 20MHz, but that would have needed more changes to the bootloader.
[8:47] <gordonDrogon> and the bootloader is ugly - looks like it's been hacked at random over the years with no one person looking after it.
[8:47] <gordonDrogon> I had to edit the code just to make it compile.
[8:47] <Xark> gordonDrogon: Yeah. I swapped crystals after uploading for my little test (I can generate 64 column video @ 25Mhz). :)

[8:51] <stev> Currently the foundation says debian is the recommended distro; Will they change to fedora remix when new version releases?
[8:51] <gordonDrogon> heh.. that's a mass of wired there and I think I spot a seeduino mega there too :)
[8:51] <Xark> gordonDrogon: Yeah, really just a 328 on a breadboard, but a few other Arduinos in the shot. :)
[8:51] <gordonDrogon> stev, no idea - and why would they change? Debian seems to be being accepted...
[8:52] <stev> gordonDrogon: They listed fedora remix as recommended previously.
[8:52] <gordonDrogon> stev, yup - but it wasn't stable enough from what I recall...
[8:53] <Xark> gordonDrogon: Yes, Seeeduino mega 1280 (nice board - brings all lines out) and Teensy++2.0 (nice for the size and upload speed). Also a "Hackvision" which was my starting point (but it is bitmap only and as we were discussing AVR doesn't have enough RAM for a good bitmap mode).
[8:53] <gordonDrogon> I'm happy with Debian - but I've been using it for 18 years...
[8:53] <gordonDrogon> Xark, yea, I bought one for a project a while back when I needed more IO.
[8:53] <Xark> stev: I think Fedora remix got delayed a "class" (so more students can get it ready).
[8:54] <stev> Xark: I don't understand what you said.
[8:54] <gordonDrogon> Personally, I will be somewhat annoyed if the foundation immediately drops support for Debian when Fedora is 'ready' ...
[8:54] <Xark> gordonDrogon: It kills me that (e.g.) Arduino folks left out 3 of 3 XCK lines on their Mega (and I need XCK to read PS/2 keyboard while generating video).
[8:55] <stev> gordonDrogon: me too.
[8:55] <gordonDrogon> Xark, yea, there have been some very intersting design decisions over the whole range... e.g. the non 0.1" spacings between the connectors!
[8:55] <Xark> stev: Fedora remix for Pi is being worked on by students in Canada. It wasn't ready when Pi launched (lots of problems), so they aren't recommending it now (but perhaps they will on the next revision).
[8:55] <gordonDrogon> still, it's been a great platform for getting people back into this sort of lower level control.
[8:55] <Xark> gordonDrogon: Totally.
[8:56] <gordonDrogon> it'll be nice to have alternatives - just like Linux on the PC platform, but if the foundation then starts to produce software dedicated to just one release (e.g. critical drivers!) then it'll be a major PITA
[8:56] <stev> Xark: I see. Thanks for explanation. Howver some pages still say fedora remix is "recommanded".
[8:57] <gordonDrogon> I think they're just lazy in updating their own website :)
[8:57] <gordonDrogon> right. I need to go get some breakfast and put the bins out....
[8:57] <gordonDrogon> later...

[9:04] <Xark> stev: Yes, typo I mean "shutdown -r now" (an it hangs and doesn't reboot sometimes - usually when it senses I am actually remote).
[9:05] <stev> Xark: I'm annoyed by the same situation.
[9:06] <Xark> stev: A minor point, but a real basic thing that one would like to rely on. Hopefully it will not be too difficult to teach the kernel to reboot reliably...
[9:06] <stev> Xark: rpi sometimes doesn't reboot. Have any idea?
[9:06] <Xark> stev: I haven't looked at the code, but it seems to me it is a kernel issue.
[9:06] <stev> Xark: well, this is not a minor point to me.
[9:07] <Xark> stev: Well, minor (to some) compared to non-accelerated X and flaky slow SD card access. :)
[9:07] <Xark> However, one would hope much easier to address (I wonder if the kernel devs are aware of this issue).
[9:08] <stev> Xark: i don't use X.
[9:08] <Arch1mede> stev: i dont use X as well normally but its neat to show someone what a 35$ computer can do running it

[9:12] <Xark> hotwings: It is the same "don't put swap on SD". If it is not reliable for swap, it is just unreliable. :)
[9:12] <Arch1mede> do you really need swap for debian squeeze?
[9:12] <Xark> (only a matter of how fast it dies on you...)
[9:13] <Xark> Arch1mede: Sure, if you do any big compiles or anything that needs more than 128MB (depending on mem split).
[9:13] <hotwings> Xark - i have the opposite experience.. ive been installing systems to sdhc for years now and have never had a single problem. as a matter of fact, all of my installs are still working fine with the oldest being about 5 years old.
[9:13] <Xark> hotwings: Well, I guess I have just been unlucky.
[9:13] <Xark> hotwings: USB HDD is also much faster and bigger on RPi anyways, so no worries. :)
[9:13] <hotwings> all the boxes have at least 2GB ram, use ext2, and have no swap
[9:14] <Xark> hotwings: If I had 2GB (or even 1GB) on RPi then I could totally see omitting swap. :)
[9:15] <hotwings> one thing i love about using sdhc for installs... in the event one did die, you can just pull the corrupted sdhc out, put in a back up, and have the system running again in a matter of seconds. assuming you cloned your install of course

[9:16] <xboxor-at-work> If you're doing big compiles just offload it with distcc and a desktop w/an ARM build environment
[9:16] <Xark> hotwings: Yes, that is nice. Almost the same with external HDDs (but bigger, so harder to want to "image").
[9:16] <xboxor-at-work> this will work on most linux platforms not just Arch: http://archlinuxarm.org/developers/distcc-cross-compiling
[9:17] <hotwings> biggest compiles i do are mplayer2...i guess
[9:18] <Xark> xboxor-at-work: Yeah, I mostly see myself doing cross compiles and running remotely (and see OpenGL pop up on the "target"). However, for the moment my RPi is being a "test server" so I don't want it to run out of RAM (and I have done a few compiles and things - not sure I *need* swap, but on a HDD, WTH).
[9:18] <hotwings> i compile everything, but then i only use linux in dedicated and specific cases.. either way, kernel, drivers, and a few apps are it
[9:18] <hotwings> i dont compile xserver though
[9:18] * Xark checks -> Swap: 1048572 0 1048572
[9:19] <Xark> Hasen't even touched it yet (although I did have to reboot a bit ago to shut down rpcbind port).
[9:19] <xboxor-at-work> I will also add that there are things about Class10 SD cards not working. I'm using a SanDisk Extreme Class 10. Granted I'm not seeing the 45Mb/sec max that it advertises but faster than the generic old 2Gb SD card I tried first.
[9:20] <Xark> hotwings: I see the RPi as a standardized home brew "game console". :) So far having fun pounding on the GPU (which is pretty decent for a $35 board).
[9:20] <hotwings> maybe a nes emulator :)
[9:20] <xboxor-at-work> I was seeing ~3MB/sec when downloading files off the Pi via sftp. That might have been restricted by the encryption layer.
[9:21] <Xark> hotwings: No problemo. N64 emulator even (but I am skeptical of PS2). :)

[9:23] <xboxor-at-work> I could not see a Pi emulating PS2.
[9:23] <Xark> hotwings: I am pretty sure it can, only question is speed. There is a good dynamic-recompiler for N64 on ARM and I believe it is already running on RPi (Mupen fork - forget the name).
[9:23] <Xark> xboxor-at-work: No, PC can't really emulate PS2 (without limitations).

[18:03] <traeak> probably generic? i got it at microcenter a while back on sale
[18:04] <Gadgetoid> I hope someone cracks USB weirdness at some point
[18:04] <Gadgetoid> Weirdly my branded USB hub bleeds power back to the Pi, so buying something expensive/decent probably doesn't necessarily help

[18:04] <traeak> 7 port powered hub
[18:04] <bfdb> cracks usb?
[18:04] <GabrialDestruir> The only reason I haven't bothered with a reinstall is because until this stupid malware thing, the only issue I've had is with the Windows Search Indexer -.-
[18:05] <traeak> now i realize it
[18:05] <Gadgetoid> GabrialDestruir: You mean "with windows"
[18:05] <traeak> the rpi should have shipped with a dedicated power supply
[18:05] <traeak> which would have jacked up the price
[18:05] <bfdb> GabrialDestruir: you should turn that off, it starts indexing at inappopriate times
[18:05] <GabrialDestruir> No, the Windows Search Indexer... lol
[18:05] <traeak> but would have allowed them to not do stupid crap with the usb ports
[18:05] <TopherBrink> people installing malware and crap = windows fault. somehow.
[18:06] <GabrialDestruir> I've been tempted to, bfdb, but I just know once I do I'll need to find something.... and blah. lol
[18:06] <Gadgetoid> The RPi needs an ardunio-like barrel connector that accepts 5v+ imo
[18:06] <bfdb> traeak: an extra dollar
[18:06] <ReggieUK> Gadgetoid, agreed
[18:06] <traeak> bfdb: seriously, just an extra dollar for a 2A/5V power supply?
[18:06] <traeak> bfdb: may have killt shipping though (bigger wart than the rpi itself)
[18:06] <jaxdahl> can't you do that via the GPIO pins?
[18:07] <bfdb> traeak: Of course, retail prices are much higher than the original construction cost
[18:07] <Gadgetoid> I hate micro-USB as a power supply, and it's obsolete as a data transport too??? smartphones should all sync wirelessly and have robust barrel connectors, arrrr!
[18:07] <bbb^work> Gadgetoid: indeed I would have plenty of options then if the power was like that, but having to cut up a micro usb cable just seems brain dead :P
[18:07] <rvalles> http://b.rvalles.net/unsorted/raspberrypi_aros.png
[18:07] <bfdb> Gadgetoid: wireless power isn't exactly efficient though
[18:07] <rvalles> better version of the screenshot earlier.
[18:07] <rvalles> :)
[18:07] <Gadgetoid> bfdb: wireless sync is good, wireless power less so??? but would be nice. That's why: barrel connector!
[18:08] <Gadgetoid> Actually, USB should have been an appropriation of the 3.5mm jack from the outset??? square keyed connectors? lulwut!?

[18:13] <Gadgetoid> I don't think the Pi was designed with the hardware requirements of us technically inclined folk in mind :D
[18:13] <bfdb> Gadgetoid: Of course it was
[18:13] <DaQatz> The target cost made it an arm6 in this case the pricepoint was important.
[18:13] <bbb^work> there was a question on that during one of Eben's video, something down the lines of they had all ready commited to to the broadcom chip before everyone jump on the ARMv7 bandwagon ...

[19:13] <trevorman> plugging that 49 port hub into a windows PC would probably kill it
[19:14] <IT_Sean> how so?
[19:14] <trevorman> USB detection x49?
[19:14] <IT_Sean> good point.
[19:15] <GabrialDestruir> Thinkgeek got rid of their Mini USB monitor .-.
[19:15] <trevorman> I guess its just a bunch of 7 port hubs all dangling off another USB hub
[19:15] <IT_Sean> you can still get 'em, just not from thinkgeek

[19:18] <trevorman> not sure how industrial it is without a case
[19:18] <friggle> gmjhowe: rubbish power supply
[19:18] <jaxdahl> they made a custom board that randomly switched on/off the USB ports
[19:19] <jaxdahl> only a 500mA power supply
[19:19] <jaxdahl> ew
[19:19] <trevorman> jaxdahl: I expect that most OSes would freak out about that if you repeatedly did it and fast
[19:19] <jaxdahl> trevorman, our drivers were bluescreening
[19:19] <ratherDashing> that brando was 3A which is still nothig for 16 ports
[19:19] <ratherDashing> the monoprice one is 2A for 7 I believe

[19:46] <Adya> ?
[19:46] <gordonDrogon> the issue is that my ATmega is running at 12MHz.
[19:47] <gordonDrogon> so a standard arduino bootloader won't work.
[19:47] <Viperfang> Well, you never said that :P
[19:47] <gordonDrogon> I have loaded up a modified one to run at 12MHz.
[19:47] <gordonDrogon> however that's an issue for a lot of people - they can't program a bootloadter into an atmega without a programmer...

[20:05] <beardface> until i added a config.txt
[20:05] <ReggieUK> so the only real failing with the stock debian is your understanding on how to reconfigure the keyboard for your locale?
[20:05] <beardface> to let me use HDMI
[20:06] <mischief> ReggieUK: his keyboard's not functional at all in X
[20:06] <mischief> at least thats what i gather
[20:06] <beardface> ^^ yes
[20:06] * dwatkins assumes this is a known-working USB keyboard
[20:06] <ReggieUK> ahh, so it's a software issue elsewhere then?
[20:06] <mischief> beardface: maybe you should run X, and put the Xorg log on gist or sprunge and paste it here
[20:06] <beardface> its known to work in console
[20:06] <beardface> so assumed compatibility with X
[20:07] <Viperfang> beardface: considered a power issue?
[20:07] <ratherDashing> gpm compat is diff than X
[20:07] <ReggieUK> and just out of interest, you're using a powered usb hub?
[20:07] <beardface> not a powered hub
[20:07] <beardface> only have mouse / kbd plugged in

[20:33] <Kooothor> hello folks
[20:33] <plugwash> From what i'm gathering the foundation is planning to stick with their 3.1 based kernels for now
[20:34] <Kooothor> Just got mine today, did the 'dd' on SD, plugged everything, I GET NOTHING ON SCREEN, I read the troubleshooting wiki, I have no idea what to try now, any help ?
[20:34] <plugwash> long term it is considered desirable to get raspberry pi support upstream but before that can happen substantial work is required
[20:34] <hotwings> i wonder if rpi support will ever be merged
[20:35] <plugwash> depends, the big issue is the USB driver, AIUI it's awful code and is NOT going to get merged

[20:35] <plugwash> so the only way we will see usable RPi support upstream is if it is rewritten

[20:42] <zgreg> ratherDashing: as long as there's no stable standard platform support on ARM, the kernel side device support will ALWAYS be hacky
[20:42] <bootc> frankly, the USB driver code is utter <bleep> and the SD code needs a good cleanup, but this is exactly what we're doing

[20:44] <bootc> friggle: I'd love it :-)
[20:44] <bootc> I think the argument is pretty clear already, don't you?
[20:44] <plugwash> bootc, do you plan to do a 3.2.20 version of your treee?
[20:45] <bootc> plugwash: I've done 3.2.16-3.2.19 so far so I don't see why not
[20:45] <friggle> bootc: I certainly don't see keeping in line with what brcm use internally as a particularly big deal
[20:45] <spikeb> anyone working (or even able to work) on 2d for the X driver?
[20:45] <zgreg> 3.2 is an LTS kernel, too
[20:45] <friggle> bootc: though think it's too short a timescale to switch to 3.2 before I push out this next release
[20:45] <plugwash> mmm, and 3.2.x is what the official debian kernel will be for wheezy
[20:46] <bootc> friggle: probably, I'm in no rush but I'd like to go in that direction
[20:46] <zgreg> both debian's next release and ubuntu 12.04 use 3.2
[20:46] <zgreg> so it's definitely getting a lot of love
[20:46] <bootc> plugwash / zgreg: exactly
[20:46] <plugwash> btw bootc I dunno if you follow the forums but I managed to make a patch out of your 3.2.18 tree and add it to the debian source package and build a working kernel from it
[20:46] <friggle> bootc: yeah, sounds like we should plan to push it out as an update
[20:47] <bootc> plugwash: aha, no I'm not much of a forum nut but I follow a couple of threads - evidently missed that one - nice work!
[20:47] <ratherDashing> i think the day rpi-update gets pushed to pull bootc's kernel that will be the day 90% of people switch kernels
[20:47] <bootc> ratherDashing: :-D
[20:47] <bootc> Hexxeh: want to look into doing that? ;-)
[20:47] <plugwash> I don't know about other people here but i've always regarded rpi-update as a temporary soloution

[20:48] <bootc> plugwash: yes the firmware really needs to be distributed as a debian package
[20:48] <friggle> we've got the kernel packaged in the wheezy armel. It's not perfect, but it's functional
[20:48] * popey (~alan@ubuntu/member/popey) Quit (Ping timeout: 252 seconds)
[20:48] <ratherDashing> plugwash: well your solution of patching the official debian kernel and pushing it through apt-get is the best way, but then all the drivers would have to be bundled in another non-free package i guess and put in the rpi repo
[20:48] <bbb^work> me 2, updates should via apt-get update with kernel and firmware synced ...
[20:48] <friggle> ratherDashing: that's what we're doing for the armel wheezy release
[20:49] <bootc> ratherDashing: no the drivers are all open source so no non-free required for the kernel
[20:49] <ratherDashing> all that crud in /opt/vc is OS?
[20:49] <bootc> the userspace libs and firmware is 'non-free' however

[20:57] * PiBot sets mode +v FrankBuss
[20:57] <plugwash> some are probablly due to volt drop at high currents because of those stupid polyswitches, some are almost certainly down to the low code quality of the driver and some may well be hardware bugs
[20:58] <IT_Sean> basically
[20:58] <plugwash> unfortunately it's near impossible to seperate them
[20:58] <traeak> sadly
[20:58] <ratherDashing> from experience, buying a powered hub solved my issues with my external hdd. each their own though
[20:58] <plugwash> well actually power is easy to seperate it's just most people don't have the guts to do it
[20:58] * Laogeodritt (~Laogeodri@wikipedia/Laogeodritt) Quit (Ping timeout: 245 seconds)
[20:58] <traeak> so as mentinoed before they probably should have sold a power supply with the rpi with a LOT more amperage
[20:59] <plugwash> connect a decent 2A PSU to the GPIO header and link out the polyswitches and you basically eliminate power problems
[20:59] <plugwash> so if it's still flaky after doing that you know it's something else

[21:58] <Helldesk> I think when I had it so that I was logged in "locally" and through ssh in addition, I didn't see what I did over ssh
[21:58] <Wolfram74> i could plug the rPi into the router and have an easier time of ssh'ing
[21:58] <Helldesk> (on the tv)

[22:01] <Helldesk> sadly
[22:01] <DavidA> ok
[22:02] <Helldesk> but first check the power supply
[22:02] <dwatkins> DavidA: sounds like the problem I had initially, check the SD card is all the way in, formatted ok etc.
[22:02] <Helldesk> do you have a multimeter?
[22:02] <DavidA> no multimeter
[22:02] <DavidA> no pic without SD?
[22:02] <Helldesk> ok, does the power supply have a rating printed on it?
[22:02] <DavidA> 5v
[22:02] <dwatkins> well, if the SD isn't in, the LED stays red
[22:02] <DavidA> ah
[22:02] <DavidA> let me check
[22:02] <Helldesk> 5 V obviously, but how many amps?
[22:03] <IT_Sean> it should say XXXma on it.
[22:03] <DavidA> 1.0
[22:03] <IT_Sean> You need 700ma or better. 1a (1000ma) is preferable.
[22:03] <Helldesk> 1 A?
[22:03] <DavidA> yup
[22:03] <IT_Sean> Okay, good. 1A is good.
[22:03] <DavidA> it's an old htc phone one I think
[22:03] <DavidA> ok
[22:03] <DavidA> I rushed through the SD card bit
[22:03] <Helldesk> mA, not ma
[22:04] <IT_Sean> sorry, mA. :p
[22:04] <friggle> Helldesk: what did you use to write the sd card? what image are you using?

[22:10] <DavidA> thx all - think it was just a bad sd install

[22:19] * Tuxuser is now known as XeCrypt
[22:19] <trevorman> buzzkill: openelec works for me on the rpi if thats what you're asking. I did the manual install steps
[22:19] <ratherDashing> i would hope so. every update i look at the audio debug logs that it spews to the console and they look different, more logging added and stuff, so someone is doing something. that being said, i still haven't gotten it to work very well at all as a user
[22:20] <ratherDashing> cmus works the best for me
[22:20] <ratherDashing> pianobar works the worst (well it kinda doesn't work)

[22:23] <amelia_> Someone told me about trying RaspBMC, and that it works well with AirPlay streaming
[22:23] <IT_Sean> I know crystalbuntu (xbmc for the ATV) supports airplay.
[22:23] <ratherDashing> when i get some time i want to setup a2dp
[22:24] <ratherDashing> i got bluetooth to work on my pi, just gotta figure that part out
[22:25] <DavidA> anyone know what is happening here? looks like video corruption: http://imgur.com/2ft1g
[22:25] <Matt> I want a linux airplay client
[22:25] <bfdb> DavidA: aliens
[22:25] <IT_Sean> amelia_: airplay relies on a direct connection of sorts, so, your iDevice and the xbmc device have to be on the same network. i.e. if the iDevice is on a wireless network, the xbmc device needs to be on the same wireless network. If the xbmc is on a wired network, the iDevice (or laptop, etc..) need to be on the same wired network, etc...
[22:26] <DavidA> bfdb: thought so
[22:26] <plugwash> flaky HDMI connection, try increasing the drive level in config.txt
[22:26] <DavidA> :)
[22:26] <DavidA> ok
[22:26] <IT_Sean> It is NOT enough for one to be on the wired part of a router with the other on the wireless part of the same router.
[22:26] <DavidA> thought it might be hardware/unfixable
[22:26] <bfdb> IT_Sean: that seems silly
[22:26] <Dagger2> IT_Sean: that should be enough, assuming the wired and wireless are bridged and no filtering is going on
[22:26] <SpeedEvil> Depends on the routing.
[22:26] * mrdragons (~em@ Quit (Ping timeout: 265 seconds)
[22:27] <trevorman> what Dagger2 said. if its doing bridging correctly then it should be the same
[22:27] <IT_Sean> Depends on the router, i suppose. With every setup i have tried, i have not gotten it to work across the wireless/wired barrier
[22:27] <bfdb> as long as they're on the same gateway should be enough shouldn't it?
[22:27] <the_eye> same broadcast domain I would presume
[22:27] <IT_Sean> That SHOULD be enough, but, it depends on how the router is set up.
[22:27] <trevorman> all consumer routers should have wifi and wired as the same segment though
[22:28] <trevorman> never seen any that by default let you unlink them. not in a consumer one anyway
[22:28] <bfdb> so you have to get an apple branded router for it to work?
[22:28] <IT_Sean> No.
[22:28] <IT_Sean> You do not.
[22:28] <IT_Sean> But, you do need the router to bridge the wired and wireless netowkrs properly.
[22:28] <trevorman> bit of a silly limitation by apple if so anyway
[22:28] <bfdb> anyone here on the ios 6 beta?
[22:28] <trevorman> since having wired + wireless is very common
[22:29] <IT_Sean> I agree. I've never gotten it to work. ymmv
[22:29] <Matt> IT_Sean: I'll have to test with our atv2 tonight, but every consumer router I've seen have bridged wired+wireless, rather than route between them
[22:29] <IT_Sean> I have gotten it to work with everything on wireless, but, not across the wireless/wired barrier
[22:29] <trevorman> weird
[22:29] <bfdb> and you're an it technician?

[22:45] <gordonDrogon> mythos, sure - but don't you give him the screaming heeby jeebies by getting him to install openvpn :)
[22:45] <Matt> if I wanna push more network traffic, openvpn is fantastic
[22:45] <gordonDrogon> matt agreed - openvpn is good - but it's a VPN - to just get to a port on a device, ssh is great.

[22:47] <gordonDrogon> PuTTY is actually a bit harder to setup on a Win PC - you need to use the GUI to add in the forwards after making the connection.
[22:47] <plugwash> IIRC you can add them in before making it too
[22:47] <Matt> you can add in the forwards when you make the connection
[22:47] <plugwash> and you can save them in a profile
[22:47] <gordonDrogon> you can save them...
[22:47] <Ben64> in openelec, how can i get the video to not play larger than my screen?
[22:47] <Matt> enter the connection details on the main page, then click down into SSH | Tunnels and add em in, then connect
