[0:05] <bob_binz> this is way o/t, but McCoys sausage flavour crisps are awesome - sorry, just had to share that - as you were
[0:07] <three14> not as o/t as the 16 cans of rockstar coconut water i bought last night at 7-11 that were one clearance.

[0:07] <SpeedEvil> I bought about a month ago 15 quids worth of chocolate.
[0:07] <SpeedEvil> It had a pricing error.
[0:07] * tsdedst (~tsdedst@188.250.142.145) Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[0:07] <SpeedEvil> It filled two carrier bags.
[0:07] <SpeedEvil> 15kg total.
[0:08] <three14> lmao
[0:08] <bob_binz> coconut water sounds ewww, I'm afraid - especially in a can - it's bad enough out of a cococut!
[0:08] <lee> it is pretty dire
[0:08] <lee> supposed to be good for you - shame it tastes awful
[0:08] <SpeedEvil> I now have enough chocolate to have a chocolate only diet for approaching 2 months.
[0:08] <three14> bob_binz, it's not too bad. although, i'm pretty sure the only reason they were on clearance is because no one but me likes them.
[0:09] <lee> my mum likes it too
[0:09] <bob_binz> someone has to I guess!
[0:09] <lee> I can't stand more than a mouthful
[0:09] <three14> quaote of the day
[0:09] <three14> quote*
[0:10] <dirty_d> lol
[0:10] <bob_binz> 15kg of chocolate sounds ok though
[0:11] <SpeedEvil> Snickers, Mars, Galaxy, and one other I forget

[0:16] <three14> the US has a fine selection of chocolate flavored carnuba wax.
[0:16] <lee> I'm not keen on it, just doesn't taste as good
[0:16] <DaMummy|PND> yay im in
[0:17] <bob_binz> well at least you mentioned decent alternatives - those that say "don't like H/C, I'll have a bag 'o' maltesers" do me head in!!
[0:17] <bob_binz> gratz @ DaMummy|PND

[0:21] * markbook let's his pi watch X-Files marathons on hulu
[0:21] <Arch-iMac> three14: ahh well that explains why you were here when i left and back again when i came on
[0:21] <SpeedEvil> three14: I recommend sleeping in zero gravity.
[0:21] <three14> SpeedEvil, i'm sure it'd be the best sleep i've had in years.
[0:22] <three14> markbook, check out the Episode 'Small Potatoes", it takes place 20mi from where i am sitting.

[1:02] <Arch-iMac> heh that triggered there spam detection
[1:03] <three14> hmm, i don't recall having that issue..
[1:06] <zgreg> friggle: hmm. I don't have any luck with the newest firmware...
[1:07] <zgreg> the kernel doesn't even boot up correctly
[1:07] <three14> Lol, is it bad if there's division by zero in the kernel? haha o_O
[1:07] <friggle> zgreg: yeah, you need to build yourself or wait for Dom to rebuild
[1:07] <friggle> zgreg: the firmware that got pushed has the facepalm bool bug
[1:07] <zgreg> how should I rebuild the firmware? :D
[1:07] <friggle> zgreg: well, it's only the kernel that changed
[1:07] <zgreg> I think I'm using my fixed kernel
[1:07] <zgreg> or am I?
[1:08] <Arch-iMac> three14: i can resolve the host...wierd
[1:08] <friggle> zgreg: https://github.com/raspberrypi/firmware/commit/2f79816fc98d037a447f3d3cf33faa0114233fed he didn't modify anything over than kernel stuff (and changing mode of loader.bin)
[1:09] <Arch-iMac> three14: ahhhh seems i had to wait awhile ...now its working

[1:10] <zgreg> friggle: I think https://github.com/raspberrypi/firmware/commit/64fc2001fea287414f9b318a5d9c1edf03580940 breaks it for me
[1:11] <friggle> zgreg: hmm, I was only updating my kernel and haven't tried those yet
[1:11] <zgreg> the blinking definitely works. the rest doesn't. not a good compromise :)
[1:11] <friggle> zgreg: your kernel doesn't even start? you should at least have flashy lights to debug it
[1:12] <friggle> zgreg: how many flashes do you get?
[1:12] <zgreg> friggle: to be more accurate, it doesn't start correctly. I see the pi logo in the top left, cursor blinks once, then nothing
[1:12] <zgreg> and this kernel worked with the older firmware files
[1:12] <three14> something tells me the pi isn't going to boot after updating the kernel et al. on this crappy 2gb microsd-sd adapter. it's 7min into it. division by zero in the kernel, etc.
[1:13] <zgreg> three14: division by zero? wait what. and where does that happen? :)
[1:14] <three14> during boot. i fear i may not be able to give you a pastepin of dmesg.
[1:14] <NucWin> any python knowing peeps awake?
[1:14] <NucWin> if os.path.exists('/sys/class/gpio/gpio%s'%id): <-- can you explain what %s is doing?
[1:15] <RockHawk> It's formatting the id into the string
[1:15] <friggle> zgreg: I'm getting a "rainbow of death" after updating the *.bin files
[1:15] <RockHawk> so if id is 1 then 'blah %s' % id will give the string 'blah 1'
[1:16] <NucWin> ok so its just like a replace with params

[1:16] <three14> could be pebkac, but who knows.
[1:16] <friggle> zgreg: fine now I've updated *.elf too
[1:16] <zgreg> friggle: I reverted the *.elf *.bin files to an revision earlier and it works again. so it's definitely commit 64fc2001 that is faulty
[1:19] <zgreg> three14: hm, somewhere in mmc_set_data_timeout?
[1:19] <zgreg> let's check it out...
[1:21] <friggle> zgreg: that happens if you run the current kernel.img from the 'firmware' repo
[1:21] <friggle> zgreg: and now I can't boot again either, so the successul boot must have been a fluke...
[1:21] * Tenchworks (~none@wsip-174-78-139-174.ri.ri.cox.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:21] * PiBot sets mode +v Tenchworks
[1:23] <three14> 15min in, i don't think the pi's going to boot. haha
[1:24] <friggle> just had another succesful boot
[1:25] <Arch-iMac> lol omg.....i just did a rpi-update and im getting the same thing as three14
[1:25] <Simon-> heh
[1:25] <Simon-> friggle: have you found a bug? I don't have that sync process at all
[1:26] <friggle> Simon-: "sync process"?
[1:26] * warddr_ is now known as warddr
[1:26] <Simon-> "Rebuilt kernel with sdhci-bcm2708: raise DMA sync timeout "
[1:27] <three14> zgreg, ok. originally with this 2gb card i was getting error -110 for about 30sec. rpi-update results in division by zero in kernel, and using the files provided by you in your testkit, boot is perfect.
[1:27] <friggle> Simon-: that was zgreg's commit. It at least seems to make it so I can't reproduce the corruption I was having any more
[1:27] <three14> zgreg, you sir deserve a beer.
[1:28] <friggle> Simon-: but people were reporting that corruption before any SD patches got in (I just couldn't reproduce it), so I'm not totally happy with that code
[1:28] <friggle> or well, that problem
[1:29] <zgreg> three14: great
[1:29] <zgreg> I have major problems with the current firmware, though
[1:29] <zgreg> and when I say firmware, I mean the *.elf/*.bin files, not the kernel
[1:29] <friggle> zgreg: me too, I've dropped Dom a note
[1:30] <Arch-iMac> where do i get the testkit files? im getting that division by zero flooding my screen
[1:30] <zgreg> they're at http://greg.kinoho.net/rpi-sd-testkit.tar.bz2
[1:31] <Arch-iMac> thanks

[1:35] <friggle> zgreg: by the way, does boot_delay=1 in config.txt fix booting for you with latest *.elf,*.bin. Does for me
[1:35] <three14> wow. was gettign 1.15MB/s on this 2gb card before zgreg's newest patches. now getting 9.78MB/s
[1:36] <zgreg> friggle: I'll give it a try
[1:37] * iccanobif (~iccanobif@host221-8-dynamic.14-87-r.retail.telecomitalia.it) Quit ()

[1:38] <ReggieUK> I wonder
[1:38] <ReggieUK> I've been thinking about this, with power etc.
[1:38] <ReggieUK> I've been powering my pi via a battery
[1:38] <ReggieUK> it's got a switch
[1:38] * tr-808 (brambles@unaffiliated/contempt) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:38] * PiBot sets mode +v tr-808
[1:38] <ReggieUK> first time I turn it on, pi doesn't boot
[1:38] <zgreg> ok, give me a minute, I'll test it
[1:39] <ReggieUK> if I toggle the power off and back on again, it boots, and boots everytime thereafter
[1:39] <SpeedEvil> odd
[1:39] <ReggieUK> odd indeed
[1:39] * Turingi (~devon@unaffiliated/devon-hillard/x-7250961) Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[1:39] <Simon-> I get that a lot too
[1:39] <Arch-iMac> on this test kit....i have access to /boot but not to lib...do i move lib files after its booted or is it mandatory before booting?
[1:40] <ReggieUK> and the first real boot seems to give me some mmc/dma errors (this is from a kernel from a couple of days ago)
[1:40] <ReggieUK> then after that it settles
[1:40] <ReggieUK> so I wonder if the boot_delay is some kind of power settling period?
[1:40] <three14> Arch-iMac, if you just want to get it booted, you can probably just copy/replace the /boot stuff
[1:40] <three14> backup first
[1:40] <friggle> ReggieUK: that would be my guess
[1:41] <ReggieUK> which leads me right back to thinking that 1/2 the issues people get are power related
[1:41] <Arch-iMac> three14: well this is a fresh install so it doesnt matter if its backedup
[1:41] <zgreg> friggle: nope. same issue.
[1:42] <ReggieUK> I read in one forum post that the alpha boards had proper power provision
[1:42] <Arch-iMac> hurray no more division by zero flooding my screen

[1:43] <friggle> ReggieUK: they also had big power adaptors. I much prefer my dinky little kindle charger

[1:43] <ReggieUK> I don't care how big the charger is
[1:43] <ReggieUK> it's away from me
[1:43] <ReggieUK> what i care about is the pi having sufficient power
[1:43] <zgreg> friggle: ah, boot_delay appears to delay a part of the bootloader by the number of seconds specified.
[1:44] <zgreg> well, that works for me, but after that, the kernel still crashes or whatever, very early on
[1:44] <three14> i actually prefer barrel jacks or mini-b, i tend to agree with ReggieUK though.
[1:44] <friggle> zgreg: your kernel crashes or the current one from firmware?
[1:44] <ReggieUK> I prefer barrel jacks and mini-usb too
[1:44] <mikey_w> Well you have to allow for the sd card rotation to get up to speed.
[1:44] <zgreg> friggle: my kernel
[1:44] <friggle> zgreg: in what way does it crash?
[1:44] <zgreg> which works fine with the old firmware files
[1:45] <zgreg> I see the raspberry pi logo, cursor blinks once, then freezes, then nothing else happens
[1:45] <friggle> zgreg: so with boot_delay you get past the coloured splash screen?
[1:45] <ReggieUK> but after seeing the state of microUsb cables I'd prefer just a barrel jack
[1:45] <zgreg> no text on screen
[1:45] <zgreg> friggle: yes
[1:45] <zgreg> friggle: I also get into this stage without boot_delay
[1:46] <friggle> zgreg: do you get any output over serial?
[1:46] <zgreg> and again, none of these problems with the old firmware files

[1:46] <zgreg> friggle: I have no hardware for that ready, sorry
[1:46] <zgreg> all my stuff is 5V-compliant
[1:47] <mikey_w> I don't consider some nice wires soldered to a power socket a difficult task
[1:47] <mikey_w> Less voltage sag.
[1:47] <three14> no one said it was difficult, but i would bet vital parts of my anatomy that 7yr olds aren't going to be doing that.
[1:47] <ReggieUK> indeed, that seems to be another issue that is coming to the fore
[1:48] * hamitron goes to find a 7 year old to do it, to do three14 harm
[1:48] <ReggieUK> I suspect that if you've got a samsung galaxy or ipad original charger/psu then things will work
[1:48] <three14> as soon as there's a better supply of Pis, i will modify one.
[1:48] <three14> hamitron, haha ;-)
[1:49] <ReggieUK> but if you're using a clone, some random microusb cable, a less than in spec usb hub, then you've got a whole host of issues waiting to happen
[1:49] <zgreg> just copied back the *.elf *.bin files from one revision earlier. as expected, no issues, boots fine
[1:50] <blkhawk> zgreg: the newest blobs are faulty?
[1:50] <friggle> zgreg: baffling...
[1:50] <mikey_w> We need the sources.
[1:50] <friggle> zgreg: the only time I've had just a blinking cursor on kernel bootup is when I missed out console=tty1 in cmdline.txt
[1:51] <zgreg> friggle: that's what I checked first
[1:51] <mikey_w> And I need my pi.
[1:51] <zgreg> it's there, and it's pretty clear that the kernel does not boot up at all
[1:51] <blkhawk> mikey_w: we probably cannot have them because we might then just change enable_mpeg2=0 to enable_mpeg2=1
[1:51] <mikey_w> Oh bad us.

[2:07] <Arch-iMac> friggle: yeah all of my chargers will boot up the pi but then once i start connecting stuff to it it dropps the voltage
[2:07] <friggle> Arch-iMac: yeah, it performs well under a stress test for me though
[2:07] <friggle> better than cheap 1A chargers
[2:07] <friggle> three14: haven't tested the voltage and don't have a multimeter handy. Yes, it's rated at 850mA
[2:07] <three14> hmm, i think i'll go grab the multimeter. where are you guys taking a measurement?

[2:08] <three14> friggle, i was just going by what the bottom of the charger said.
[2:08] <three14> haven't physically tested anything yet
[2:09] <friggle> three14: oh, that's odd.
[2:10] <friggle> three14: mine claims 5.0V. Seems bizarre to have a USB charger actually claiming to put out 4.9V
[2:10] <hamitron> powering it from inside your PC is probably the most handy solution, for those worried about power
[2:10] * sjc is now known as sjc_
[2:10] <Arch-iMac> i even tried powering my pi on this usb hub and still the same results
[2:10] <blkhawk> hamitron: erm
[2:11] <blkhawk> hamitron: if that works then your pc is doing it wrong
[2:11] <Arch-iMac> lol if you need to keep your pc on to power the pi that defeats the whole purpose of a low powered pi
[2:11] <hamitron> doing it wrong? :|
[2:12] <blkhawk> the raspberry is not registering properly so the pc should warn about overvoltage and disable the port as soon as the current goes over 100ma or at least when it tops 500ma
[2:12] <ReggieUK> powering a pi from a hub in theory should always fail (if the pi is drawing the 700ma)
[2:12] <blkhawk> ya
[2:12] <hamitron> I was thinking more about plugging it into a molex
[2:12] <hamitron> :/
[2:12] <Arch-iMac> ReggieUK: on the wiki they have references to powering the pi via usb hub
[2:13] <blkhawk> the point of using the usb plug is that it garantees the rated voltaghe of the psu is 5v
[2:13] <ReggieUK> care to link to them
[2:13] <ReggieUK> because whatever they say, I think they're wrong if they recommend it
[2:13] <Arch-iMac> ReggieUK: hold
[2:13] <blkhawk> Arch-iMac: its clear that it might work
[2:13] <hamitron> think I have more spare molex, than usb actually ;)
[2:13] <ReggieUK> I can show you plenty of hubs that will probably work
[2:13] <zgreg> friggle: works now, but I have no idea why. maybe something is flaky over here

[2:23] <ReggieUK> Arch-iMac, that's exactly the kind of issue i'm talking about
[2:23] <lwizardl> Hello
[2:23] <ReggieUK> that's an out of spec hub
[2:23] <zgreg> friggle: with boot_delay=1, that is
[2:23] <ReggieUK> it should not be supply power to the pi (unless you're powering it from one of the hub ports)
[2:23] <cehteh> yes i know .. but some small hack on board (tap it, negotioate ..convert the voltage) would be nice .. i wonder how small/cheap thats doable
[2:24] <lwizardl> I was wondering if a Raspberry Pi would be strong enough for running GnuRadio on with a usb radio connected
[2:24] <cehteh> you need at least some dcdc converter but i dont know very much about the specs except that it runs around 48Volts
[2:24] <plugwash> Proper POE has a few complications
[2:25] <cehteh> lwizardl: its not about the strength .. its about the fuses there
[2:25] <cehteh> 100mA are fine anything more is likely go to fail (the fuses are 140mA)
[2:25] * Da|Mummy (~Veki@cpe-76-190-200-98.neo.res.rr.com) Quit (Quit: Happy Now?)
[2:25] <plugwash> cehteh, nothing a bit of wire and a soldering iron won't fix
[2:26] <cehteh> if you know what you are doing and want to void your warranty you can bridge the fuses
[2:26] <plugwash> To work with all POE sources you have to be able to accept power on either the data pairs or the spare pairs, accepting power on the spare pairs is relatively easy but accepting it on the data pairs means you need special magnetics
[2:27] * Compy (Compy@c-98-251-52-68.hsd1.ga.comcast.net) Quit ()
[2:27] <ReggieUK> I think 100ma could be optimistic if it's a warm day
[2:27] <plugwash> once you have the power tapped off the lines you then need to rectify it and then feed it to a device that will handle the POE negotiations
[2:27] <Arch-iMac> ReggieUK: see thats what i thought as well, it doesnt make sense to have this thing sorta power the pi
[2:27] <plugwash> and finally you need a DC-DC converter to turn the POE voltage into the voltage the Pi wants
[2:28] <cehteh> plugwash: is it AC?
[2:28] <three14> as i understand it, a usb can ask for the power it needs, but what if the manufacturer was cheap and a low power device ~100mA-ish asks for more (like 500mA), how is this interpreted by the Pi? Does the Pi attempt to give it 500mA like it wants? or... (sorry if i am confused or just plain wrong)
[2:28] <plugwash> AIUI the supply is DC but you don't know the polarity or which pairs it's being delivered on so you need rectifiers to sort that out
[2:29] <cehteh> three14: it just cant, i dont know about how the kernel or firmware handles it either way the fuses wont agree

[2:30] <plugwash> three14, AIUI the Pi doesn't care how much power a device reports as using
[2:30] <three14> cehteh, that's what i am wondering. if the Pi attempts to give it 500mA which trips the polyfuse, or if it has some way of denying the device the exta power
[2:30] <cehteh> try it :)
[2:31] <trevorman> it will know that the fuses have gone high resistance
[2:31] <three14> lol, at that point, so will i
[2:31] <trevorman> doubtful that the RPi driver has been configured to only negotiate up to 100mA
[2:32] <trevorman> it is quite likely that it will jsut go sure 500mA. nothing else on that root port. go for it!
[2:32] <trevorman> and the device will turn on whatever its been waiting to do and then fuse will say lolno
[2:32] <ReggieUK> there is a sense line on the smsc chip
[2:33] <cehteh> on a normal PC this is handles by the kernel and can be configured. on the rpi prolly too, someone may look over that and supply the configs
[2:33] <Arch-iMac> ReggieUK: this is what i ordered http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00483WRZ6/ref=oh_details_o06_s00_i00
[2:33] <trevorman> loads of devices aren't compliant with the USB spec and just draw as much as they want without proper negotiation anyway
[2:33] <hamitron> these fuses are easy to get to to replace?
[2:33] <trevorman> hamitron: they don't permanently die
[2:33] <cehteh> hamitron: self resetting fuses
[2:33] <ReggieUK> once the polyfuse trips, the voltage drops to zero, the current sense trips and that's that
[2:33] <hamitron> ah, ok
[2:34] <ReggieUK> Arch-iMac, I wouldn't buy that hub myself
[2:34] <cehteh> well they may die after a lot of stress and trips .. and they are rather big SMD parts well reachable and only 2 terminals .. so moderately easy to replace
[2:34] <Arch-iMac> you have to wait till they re-crystalize after a few hours
[2:34] <Arch-iMac> ReggieUK: yeah well lesson learned i guess
[2:34] <ReggieUK> it's got the 'terminus technology' chipset in there
[2:34] <Arch-iMac> yes it does
[2:34] <ReggieUK> and that's teh chip on all of the cheap generic hubs
[2:34] <hamitron> time for sleeps anyways o/
[2:35] <ReggieUK> including all of those silver and black 7 port hubs
[2:35] <Arch-iMac> great :(
[2:35] <cehteh> i'd like to put biggier fuses on the board .. but getting this fuses in small quantities is complicated and expensive
[2:35] <cehteh> prolly i can order them for 50 cent each and play 5Eur delivery :P

[2:35] <plugwash> they really aren't needed
[2:36] <cehteh> when i become too much annoyed yes
[2:36] <trevorman> three14: if you look at the schematic you'll see that it actually draws 5V from the 5V input via a polyfuse. the RPi can't actually turn that off.
[2:36] <dirty_d> that orgreenic frying pan on tv really works
[2:36] <cehteh> or if i have to order parts and think about it i can order some better ones
[2:36] <dirty_d> i just made a cheese pancake
[2:36] <dirty_d> lol
[2:37] <cehteh> i wonder how much cheaper the rpi would be without the fuses, without the zehner at the input and without the 0Ohm bridge to the supply gnd
[2:37] <cehteh> the parts costs only cents ... but manufacturing adds up for every part
[2:37] <dirty_d> 5 cents less
[2:38] <trevorman> its not going to drop it by ?1 if thats what you're wondering
[2:38] <trevorman> what dirty_d said

[2:43] <trevorman> cehteh: nope
[2:43] <ReggieUK> the pi will be rebooting if it's pulling power from the hub because it's got to be tripping the polyfuse

[2:45] <ReggieUK> it's only a guess but yeah, i think so

[3:02] <three14> still getting 4.7, but this meter's not the best because i have a fiance who tends to move the 4 boxes of crap that i have because she thinks i resemble a hoarder
[3:03] <three14> the 72 boxes of shoes of hers, however, ....
[3:05] <three14> hmm, the arduino (connected to Pi via usb) is only getting 4.5v on it's 5v pin, if it's connected to the desktop's usb it's reading 4.9v
[3:06] <three14> arduino is only programmed with the blink sketch
[3:07] <ReggieUK> doesn't matter really, it's connected via an ftdi chip which will provide upto about 90ma I think
[3:07] <ReggieUK> oh wait, no the power is provided from usb to the 328 chip and the ftdi seperately
[3:09] <three14> will check the TI Launchpad connected as well
[3:09] <three14> it should draw less, i believe.

[4:06] <three14> i'm sure it's just a matter of exposure time and focal distance.
[4:06] <Wolfram7_> then beta radiation, which are solitary electrons, they are more substantial than a photon, but also charged, so they don't penetrate very deep either, old TV's had electron guns as primary source of radiation

[4:07] <Wolfram7_> neutrons are bad fuckers
[4:07] <dirty_d> aplha is helium nucleus?
[4:07] <Wolfram7_> yep
[4:08] <three14> problem with all of these articles is that they don't tell if if unwind speed affects the xray emission, or how long the exposures are.
[4:08] <Wolfram7_> people have actually tried using scotch tape x-ray emission for things?
[4:08] <dirty_d> nuetron radiation has no name?
[4:08] <dirty_d> besides that?
[4:08] <three14> not outside of these articles to my knowledge.
[4:08] <Wolfram7_> hot neutrons, i guess
[4:09] <Wolfram7_> alpha and beta emission was kind of discovered before they had a good handle on what made up nuclei, so it sort of came from two directions at once when they realized they were the same particles
[4:10] <mikey_w> Doesn't seem practical. Urban legend stuff.

[4:16] <mikey_w> I conceived the 6 hour erection. Still a work in progress.
[4:17] * IT_Sean clears his throat
[4:17] <mikey_w> lol
[4:17] <three14> mikey_w, need moar viagra
[4:17] <mikey_w> Or water melon rind.
[4:17] <three14> no problem to go from paper to pants.
[4:17] <IT_Sean> Hey, if it lasts more than four hours, you should see a doctor.
[4:18] <three14> IT_Sean, i wonder why? a blood pressure thing? or because an erection lasting that long would probably hurt badly.
[4:18] <mikey_w> Who would have thunk that millions of transistors could dance on the tip of a pin?
[4:18] <IT_Sean> Apparently, without getting to graphic, it can cause irreparable damage ot your willy
[4:18] <three14> it'd also negate your morning excercise routine of pushups
[4:18] <ReggieUK> got about 10 seconds to stop this conversation before I get all banny
[4:19] <mikey_w> Yes mam.
[4:19] <three14> ReggieUK, as you wish ;-)
[4:19] <IT_Sean> Bah
[4:19] <mikey_w> And no potty jokes either.
[4:20] * IT_Sean makes a rude noise
[4:20] <three14> damnit, then that means i can't ask the question i had about squat-toilets.
[4:20] <mikey_w> Careful there IT_Sean.
[4:20] <Wolfram7_> so what kind of projects are people doing with their pi's?
[4:20] <IT_Sean> Reg is right.... Keep it clean in here
[4:21] <mikey_w> My current project is waiting for it to ship.
[4:21] <three14> Wolfram7_, getting everything i own to work with it, at the moment.
[4:21] <IT_Sean> Aye... I'm working on a project that has to do with tracking now long it take RS to send out a pi from the time I reg'd interest.
[4:21] <IT_Sean> :p
[4:22] <Wolfram7_> sad face
[4:22] <three14> eventually i'd like to get the pi to log from this mtk3329 gps unit i have. only needs to log generic nmea, nothing more.
[4:22] <IT_Sean> I'm hoping to have mine by September
[4:22] <mikey_w> And all of those school kids are waiting too.
[4:22] <Wolfram7_> what distro is suggested for a low experience person? i got the raspian distro but it was pretty much empty

[4:24] <D-side> hm wonder when the modmypi cases are shipping
[4:24] <Arch-iMac> after the 18th i thought i read
[4:25] <passstab> Wolfram7_, try the official Debian image
[4:25] * IT_Sean lights a doggie poo bag on fire and leaves it on D-side's front walk
[4:25] <D-side> ah i didnt even look at the site yet, was pondering aloud
[4:25] <three14> that's a potty joke!
[4:25] <passstab> then if that software is too old
[4:25] <mikey_w> I called Newark and they said mine would ship on June 28th but I don't really believe that.
[4:25] <D-side> for as much as i typically hate the "keep it clean" rules, in this channel in particular it makes total sense
[4:25] <D-side> considering the project's raison d'etre is to involve kids

[4:26] <D-side> oldtopman: some are
[4:26] <mikey_w> yes
[4:26] <D-side> why, got a source?
[4:26] <D-side> someone i know foudn one on ebay or something like that
[4:27] <D-side> from someone who had no idea what they were originally ordering
[4:27] <passstab> hey kid i can hook you up

[4:28] <D-side> i wish these xbmc project people would get on the ball and make me happy

[4:46] <Arch-iMac> man that usb hack is kewl
[4:46] <Arch-iMac> wish i was smart enuf to do that
[4:47] <Arch-iMac> what i really wish was for all this shit sticking all over the place for inputs was replaced by ribbon equivalents so we can mount in any case

[4:48] <NucWin> and not sure hdmi
[4:48] <NucWin> +about
[4:49] <three14> nucwin, could you not terminate a small section of cat5 with an rj45 on one end, and a keystone jack on the other?

[4:50] <NucWin> might be able to desolder the connector and just solder it to some cat5 but not sure if the length to the connector will be an issue with it containing components
[4:52] <trevorman> keep it short and make sure the pairs are twisted. it should be okay for short distances though

[4:53] <NucWin> easier to mount in a box with the other pcb
[4:53] <three14> trevorman, at first i thought he was going to put everything in a case, but then i saw that he just plunked it down on top. odd.
[4:54] <trevorman> a right angle USB plug wouldn't take up more space

[4:54] <trevorman> just seems odd to go to all that effort to put it into a box anyway
[4:54] <Arch-iMac> three14: well i assumed he placed it on top to show where it was going to go reletive to the box
[4:55] <trevorman> the other route would just be to solder onto the bottom of the RPi and leave the socket there
[4:55] <NucWin> needs to get it all running from one power adapter
[4:55] <trevorman> NucWin: yeah but why bother with removing the USB sockets *shrug*
[4:55] <NucWin> oh wait he has
[4:56] <trevorman> right angle plug and you don't need to unsolder the socket + you keep usage of both sockets if needed
[4:56] <trevorman> or short lead soldered to the USB socket pins on the bottom of the RPi
[4:56] <three14> plus the usb socket is just as high as the composite video
[4:58] <trevorman> something like a http://www.usbfirewire.com/Parts/rr-aar02-14.jpg
[4:58] <Arch-iMac> ohhh
[4:59] <NucWin> still quite outward pointy
[4:59] <Arch-iMac> if it was on a thin robbon cable that would be perfect
[4:59] <Arch-iMac> err ribbon
[4:59] <trevorman> they plugged into the USB power input still so *shrug*

[6:23] <magn3ts> Sooo, if I want to remote to my Rasp Pi, mount via SSH and playback.... what tool should I use for playback?
[6:23] <magn3ts> ffplay and mplayer are unusable, even though XBMC can play this stuff back
[6:25] <three14> i only got mplayer playing an mp3, that's about it. havenm't tried video
[6:26] <phire> xbmc will be using the hardware acclerated backend
[6:26] <phire> which mplayer/ffplay will have no idea about
[6:26] <magn3ts> Is there a way to get ffplay to as well?
[6:26] <magn3ts> Or are there patches for it? I thought xbmc used ffmpeg in a way.
[6:28] <three14> all i did to get mplayer to work was modprobing the snd_bcm2835 module, installing mplayer and pulseaudio, and then i think that's it. it was a pain at first because i didn't know what was wrong.
[6:28] <Arch-iMac> kadafi: are you doing more than that? because if you are just ircing from it there are much cheaper solutions....i pay like 30$ a year for shell access and i can irc from that all i want
[6:29] <kadafi> do you have full dns control of your shell?
[6:29] <kadafi> reverse dns is nice.
[6:29] <kadafi> but yeah, I do other stuff from it.
[6:29] <Arch-iMac> ohh no i dont but i have access to a bunch of vhosts
[6:29] <magn3ts> three14: well I'm sure I can get it to play audio
[6:29] <magn3ts> but I want video :)
[6:29] <kadafi> vpn, web server, sql. all squeezed in the low mem I have allocated.
[6:30] <three14> magn3ts, honestly, i doubt it would satisfy you. xbmc might be your best best for quality
[6:30] <kadafi> I'd guess then the advantage I have is root? and dns?
[6:30] <three14> bet*
[6:31] <Arch-iMac> kadafi: looks that way :)
[6:31] <Arch-iMac> but then again all im doing is ircing
[6:32] <kadafi> I have a couple of friends and a bot that irc from this "box" too.

[8:08] <megatog615> what is the typical amperage of computer usb ports?
[8:08] <megatog615> not hub or wall charger
[8:08] <three14> depends on the standard
[8:09] <megatog615> ok, 2.0 then
[8:09] <Helldesk> with usb 2.0, 100 mA and up to 500 mA if the device asks for it
[8:09] * s[x] (~sx]@ppp59-167-157-96.static.internode.on.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[8:09] * PiBot sets mode +v s[x]
[8:09] <three14> i usually use 500mA/port in estimates
[8:09] <megatog615> huh
[8:09] <megatog615> so its quite a bit less than a 700mA charger
[8:10] <Helldesk> so, for example a passive usb hub asks for the full 500 mA and can use 100 mA for itself and provide 100 mA per port
[8:10] <three14> well, the best the pi can do is 140mA/port
[8:10] <megatog615> lol really?
[8:10] <three14> yea, limited by the polyfuses
[8:10] <megatog615> i remember reading minimum was 500
[8:10] <three14> that'd be nice :-\
[8:10] <megatog615> or it wouldnt even power on
[8:10] <Helldesk> you really mustn't count on the Pi actually powering anything power hungry directly
[8:11] <three14> well, the pi needs about 700mA for it's power source.
[8:11] <megatog615> yeah unfortunately the logitech unifying receiver eats up a bit too much power
[8:11] <three14> but the pi itself can only output 140mA/usb
[8:11] <megatog615> i was hoping i wouldnt need a powered hub for that
[8:11] <megatog615> ah
[8:11] <Helldesk> power the Pi with an active (powered) hub and power the Pi itself with one of its ports
[8:12] <three14> Piception!
[8:12] <Helldesk> that way you only need one wall wart or power source, the one going into the hub
[8:12] <Helldesk> that's what I do

[8:12] <megatog615> good idea
[8:12] <SLFCore> anyone using rpi as a shoutcast streamer
[8:12] <SLFCore> (client)
[8:12] <Xark> Helldesk: That works well, but often you need a "dual port" power cord (that is what I am using and it is working fine with 3.5A USB 7 port hub power supply).
[8:12] <megatog615> hook the pi into its own hub
[8:13] <Helldesk> Xark: what's the problem?
[8:13] <magn3ts> does openelec come with the alsa driver?
[8:13] <megatog615> it's too bad we can't get connectivity over the power connector
[8:13] <magn3ts> Also, is anyone using Raspbian ? Is it "worth" it?
[8:13] <three14> magn3ts, no, it accesses openmax directly
[8:13] <megatog615> was really hoping it would, like a phone does
[8:13] <Helldesk> as long as the hub's power source can power what you want to plug in, it'll work
[8:13] <Xark> Helldesk: Each USB port (by the spec) supplys 500ma, that isn't quite enough for the Pi so you need two ports (although depending on hub it may "work for you").
[8:13] <megatog615> anyone know how much power a logitech unifying receiver draws?
[8:14] <Helldesk> just don't try to put two amps *through* the Pi (in at the power jack, out its usb ports)
[8:14] <Helldesk> Xark: I was asking what the problem was; a port on a powered hub provides the milliamps the spec demands
[8:15] <Helldesk> so go ahead and plug in a "dual port" power cord
[8:15] <Xark> Helldesk: Well, I am just saying, I believe you need TWO ports (700ma for RPi is > 500ma per port from USB spec).
[8:15] <Helldesk> the Pi doesn't enter into it as far as power supply goes
[8:15] <Xark> Helldesk: It does if you are powering the RPi from the powered USB hub (which is what I thought you were saying...)

[8:16] <Helldesk> ah yes
[8:16] <Helldesk> well, use a usb 3.0 hub :)
[8:17] <Helldesk> (I'm not sure if they provide 500+ mA to usb 2.0 devices though
[8:17] <Xark> Helldesk: Hehe, or that. PI wouldn't talk to my USB HDD for some reason (fell back to slower USB 2.0 one).
[8:17] <Xark> USB 3.0 HDD I mean*
[8:17] <Helldesk> it's a usb 2.0 device so that would be expected, right?
[8:17] <magn3ts> how stripped down is openelec?
[8:18] <Xark> Helldesk: I thought they were backwards compatible (same USB connector [on the PC side]).
[8:18] <Helldesk> yes, backwards compatible connector, but a 2.0 host is a 2.0 host, and Pi has 2.0
[8:18] <tech2077> magn3ts, very, just the basics and xbmc
[8:18] <Helldesk> so getting usb 3.0 speeds out of it would be odd
[8:18] <tech2077> its almost just xbmc
[8:19] <Xark> Helldesk: Sure, I wasn't expecting it to be faster than 2.0, I just thought it would *work* (it did not at all - hung the kernel).
[8:19] <magn3ts> oh well, I guess I'll try it and then install raspbian for my tinkering needs.
[8:19] <magn3ts> Raspbmc doesn't include the alsa driver annoyingly.
[8:19] <magn3ts> well I guess I don't know if Raspbian does either
[8:20] <three14> if you install it
[8:20] <magn3ts> you mean rebuild the kern
[8:20] <three14> should already be in the prebuilt images
[8:20] <Xark> Helldesk: It was a much newer better spec drive though, so even as USB 2.0 it would be faster than the ancient WD I am using (but it is fine for the RPi, really - better than SD).
[8:20] <magn3ts> not of Raspbmc it's not
[8:20] <magn3ts> oh
[8:20] <magn3ts> you mean in Raspbian :)
[8:21] <three14> you only need install the usual alsa-utils, etc
[8:21] <magn3ts> cool :)
[8:21] <Helldesk> does your usb hub/ethernet chip get hot?
[8:21] <magn3ts> I assume Raspbian is "better" than the official debian builds because of the hard float
[8:21] <Helldesk> the little one
[8:21] <Xark> Helldesk: Yes, warmer than the CPU (but not too hot to hold my finger on).
[8:22] <three14> magn3ts, it's slightly faster i think
[8:22] <Helldesk> running openelec gets it too hot to touch

[8:22] <Helldesk> well, not too hot to touch, but hotter than you can keep your finger on indefinitely
[8:22] <three14> probably because openelec/xbmc run the hell out of the cpu/gpu for it's ui that's constantly redrawn
[8:22] <Helldesk> yup, it's not event driven, it just runs as fast as possible like a game
[8:22] <Helldesk> due to its heritage
[8:23] <magn3ts> that's why I'm trying to get away without needing it :)
[8:23] <three14> my xbox1 (and poor fan) agrees
[8:23] <Xark> Helldesk: My RPi is mostly idle currently. When I ran a GPU stress test the CPU (GPU) got pretty hot (1000 textured cubes per frame in hello_triangle). I measured its actual power use (on my bench power supply) and the highest I measured was with GPU cranking at about 540ma IIRC.
[8:23] <tech2077> Helldesk, i have yet to get that hot with raspbmc and a 1080p movie

[8:35] <Xark> three14: Of coz. :D
[8:35] <megatog615> LOL
[8:35] <three14> i the pi could suffer from esd, it or might not
[8:35] <three14> i guess it depends if you stare at it or think about it
[8:36] <Arch-iMac> ive started at it..nothing happened
[8:36] <Arch-iMac> err starred
[8:36] <three14> stared?
[8:36] <Arch-iMac> is that not the correct spelling?
[8:37] <three14> someone needs to clock the cpu to 900, preheat their oven to 125F, and compile kde while the Pi is in the oven.
[8:37] <Arch-iMac> lol
[8:37] <Arch-iMac> well im not gonna do that
[8:37] <Arch-iMac> ohhh that reminds me
[8:37] <Arch-iMac> three14: what was it i needed to do once i installed rasbian?
[8:38] <Arch-iMac> set the cpu speed?
[8:38] <three14> well, you rpi-updated, right? that gave you the divide by zero kernel error, right?
[8:39] <three14> then you used the kernel, etc from zgreg's test kit
[8:39] <Arch-iMac> correct...i applied the zgreg toolkit and it fixed that
[8:39] <three14> which fixed it
[8:39] <Arch-iMac> righto
[8:39] <Arch-iMac> i di a apt-get update and upgrade
[8:39] <megatog615> eh?
[8:39] <three14> you can create a config.txt in /boot and add cpu_freq-900 to it. mines solid as a rock with that setting
[8:39] <megatog615> i was about to rpi-update
[8:39] <magn3ts> wat? does this apply if I'm using the pisces image?
[8:40] <Arch-iMac> lol
[8:40] <megatog615> is there something about dividing by zero that i should know?
[8:40] <three14> megatog615, go ahead, but if you get kernel error spam after reboot, you'll need a few files to fix it
[8:40] <three14> megatog615, yea, don't
[8:40] <three14> ever
[8:40] <megatog615> then i will wait
[8:40] <Arch-iMac> three14: just add that line and nothing else?
[8:41] <magn3ts> but I really want the latest and greatest :)
[8:42] <three14> about 12hrs ago the rpi-update was broken. it updated correctly, but the kernel has a bit of an error. zgreg gave us a 'testkit' which included a different kernel image and whatnot that fixed the rpi-update error. it was a simple matter of cpoy/replace with some files.
[8:42] <three14> Arch-iMac, yep

[8:44] <tech2077> hmm
[8:45] <three14> magn3ts, go ahead and rpi-update, but if you get a ton of errors afterwards and it refuses to boot, download and extract this: http://greg.kinoho.net/rpi-sd-testkit.tar.bz2 . Copy the stuff from the boot directory to /boot on your pi. should fix it.
[8:45] <tech2077> it seems easier to just write a tty driver to write out a terminal to a lcd than to create a program to do weird piping and emulation of input and output
[8:45] <magn3ts> three14: much appreciated
[8:46] <three14> in fact, it even fixed a jank 2gb microsd card i had. was getting like 1.5MB/s speed, now it gets 9.8MB/s
[8:46] <magn3ts> o_0 what is the purpose of rpi_update anyway? it updates the kernel? Is it raspbian specific then?
[8:46] <magn3ts> I thought it was just firmware?
[8:47] <three14> magn3ts, kernel/firmware i believe
[8:47] <megatog615> tbh i wish rpi-update was a debian repository
[8:47] <magn3ts> so raspbian uses the official raspberry pi debian kernel?
[8:47] <magn3ts> or is rpi_update modified in raspbian to pull the raspbian kernel?
[8:47] <magn3ts> I agree with megatog615
[8:47] <three14> don't all of the distros use the same kernel?
[8:48] <magn3ts> three14: no idea, I figured with raspbian's goal, they would want their own built kernel...
[8:48] <three14> magn3ts, i imagine they will. i donated $$ so i hope it takes off.
[8:48] <tech2077> anyone willing to donate a spi lcd module to me in that name of science :)

[8:53] <three14> neofutur, what's the stock sdram and gpu freq?
[8:53] <three14> neofutur, holy hell, look at that load average. what are you doing, currently
[8:54] <neofutur> I dont remember the defaults ;( can just say they re lower than my settings ;(
[8:54] <neofutur> three14: rebuilding gentoo
[8:54] <neofutur> emerge -e world
[8:54] <three14> neofutur, that'll do it
[8:54] <Arch-iMac> three14: well setting that dumps me into the kernel debug
[8:54] <neofutur> main goal is to test stabilitly on long term high load with init_emmc_clock=50000000 arm_freq=930 gpu_freq=350 sdram_freq=500
[8:55] <three14> neofutur, what is init_emmc_clock=50000000
[8:55] <neofutur> after 2 days high load, i think i can recommend the overclocking settings ;)

[9:14] <mpthompson> magn3ts, a little while ago you had some questions on the Raspbian kernel. Currently, we are using the same kernel that Debian squeeze uses on the Raspberry Pi. However, it is not a "Debian" kernel, but rather one hand rolled by the folks at the RPi Foundation.
[9:14] <tech2077> in addition to there being a bit that is permanently set when you over-volt
[9:15] <megatog615> three14: usage paper says not to overclock because it will make it hot
[9:15] <megatog615> and doesnt say anything about voiding warranty
[9:15] <magn3ts> mpthompson: cool and thanks for the reply. Is there a desire to build your own with the hardware floating point enabled?
[9:15] <mpthompson> magn3ts, We are currently working on a "Debian"-like kernel for Raspbian, but it is taking a bit of time to create.
[9:15] <megatog615> i just want to know from someone who definitely knows
[9:15] <magn3ts> I see
[9:15] <Arch-iMac> ok 800 seems to work
[9:15] <megatog615> as in, they're from the staff or something
[9:16] <three14> mpthompson, thanks for the reply.
[9:16] <Arch-iMac> BogoMIPS : 795.44
[9:16] <three14> Arch-iMac, now i know it sounds odd, but try 900 now
[9:16] <Arch-iMac> three14: i was using that value when it borked
[9:16] <nacimmep> keep trying till you release the magic smoke hah
[9:16] <mpthompson> The kernel contains no floating point code, so it wouldn't gain any benefit there. It may gain a few percentage is speed from the armv6 instructions though rather than the armv4 instructions.
[9:16] <Arch-iMac> lol
[9:17] <three14> Arch-iMac, the Pi needs romanced.
[9:18] <Arch-iMac> lol apparently
[9:18] <mpthompson> The main reason Raspbina is creating a kernel is to support something closer to the "official" Debian kernel configuration including modules and such. Also, so we can track and fix bugs against a known kernel that we control the release of.

[9:19] <three14> mpthompson, have you been able to buy equipment, etc that the project needs yet?
[9:19] <mpthompson> With Raspbian, it's been a bit difficult to track problems when we have no idea what specific kernel a person might be using.

[9:22] <three14> mpthompson, ha. i just try to bring up the shoes she seems to buy every week.
[9:22] <mpthompson> tech2077, no, the Debian xbmc module isn't building in Raspbian. However, we've been told it's not worth building as it has deficiencies.

[9:23] <three14> mpthompson, how about razor-qt. can't seem to find it. it's no rush, though as i use xfce or just go without x most of thge time.
[9:23] <mpthompson> For xbmc, I think there are other distributions that are focusing on it so it hasn't really been a high priority for Raspbian.
[9:23] <tech2077> that makes me a bit sad, i really am not looking foward to building xbmc
[9:23] <megatog615> raspbian = armhf debian for rpi right?
[9:23] <mpthompson> razor-qt? Let me look.
[9:23] <three14> Arch-iMac, any luck with romancing the pi?
[9:24] <mpthompson> Yes, raspbian is armhf -- but for armv6+vfp instead of armv7+vp3+thumb2
[9:25] <Arch-iMac> three14: i had to install hdparm so im romacing it now
[9:25] <Arch-iMac> but i see a huge increase in sd reads
[9:25] <Arch-iMac> went from 4mb/s to 18
[9:25] <megatog615> mpthompson: what kind of speed comparison is there between debian armel and raspbian?
[9:26] <three14> Arch-iMac, about the same here. what about with the overclocking?
[9:26] <mpthompson> three14, I don't see a razor-qt package for Debian. Can you give me a more specific package name?
[9:26] <Arch-iMac> three14: raised to 810...rebooting now
[9:27] <three14> mpthompson, the site ( http://razor-qt.org/ ) doesn't even mention debian at all. I was just curious. I assume I could compile it myself.
[9:27] <mpthompson> megatog615, for non-floating point code, it's only marginally faster because armv6 instructions are used instead of armv4. Maybe a few percentage points, if that. However, for floating point code, it can be 10x to 15x faster depending how dense the floating point instructions are in the application that's being used.
[9:28] <three14> mpthompson, apprently it's not in debian due to a licensing thing, but 0.4.1 fixed that?

[9:33] <mpthompson> If it does appear any time soon, the packages would have to be contributed by others in the community. Plugwash and I are still busy just trying to get Debian armhf stable along with kernel and firmware packages that are yet to be done.

[9:35] <gordonDrogon> morning...
[9:36] <mpthompson> three14, razor-qt looks very interesting. I've save the link to look at later.
[9:37] <mpthompson> three14, the Ubuntu packages could probably be used to build razor-qt for Raspbian, although Debian packages would make for an easier port.
[9:39] <three14> mpthompson, it's whatever is easier for the project. i'd feel terrible knowing a ton of time was put into razor-qt when other more important things need to be done. :-)

[9:40] <mpthompson> three14, well, I wouldn't jump on it immediately. It's just nice to know there are other options out there. I'm looking to see if there is already an ARM port of Razor-qt.
[9:42] <three14> mpthompson, http://mihalovic.sk/razor-qt-on-arm-ubuntu-1204
[9:43] <mpthompson> Thanks. I'm saving that link too.
[9:43] <Arch-iMac> three14: while it boots and doesnt go into a kernel debug it freezes at 890
[9:43] <three14> he says it's a tegra 2, which i think is armv7
[9:44] <Arch-iMac> ohh anther reboot throws it into kernel debug
[9:44] <three14> Arch-iMac, that's so odd.
[9:44] <magn3ts> ugh, this image is taking foooor ever to write
[9:44] <three14> Arch-iMac, what's your psu again?

[9:55] <Arch-iMac> well thats more than the standard
[9:55] <three14> plus with zgreg's patches, you've probably got a rather fast piece of pi
[9:56] <Arch-iMac> it does seem really fast compared to debian squeeze
[9:57] <three14> i think you could disable incremental updates for apt, or so i've heard. that should speed up apt-get update. don't think i have ever done it before, though

[10:12] <mythos> with the new kernel from zgreg i get 11 mb/s... which is a quite impressive performance boost

[10:12] <three14> Cheery, very nice
[10:13] <nacimmep> mine should ship this thur

[10:17] <three14> i used to bend my old speak n spell
[10:17] <nacimmep> using them like mesh nodes for misc stuff can slap a usb on it
[10:17] <nacimmep> have like a webcam network of them
[10:17] <three14> used to be pretty good at making it say funny things and sounds, just by touching solder joints on the pcb
[10:18] <nacimmep> but its a crap cpu crap ram costs like 20$ per still need to buy dock ports to solder usb cables to and buy sdcards/usb junk you want to enhance it with
[10:19] <nacimmep> in the long run i descided it wasnt worth it before pi it was intrigueing
[10:19] <magn3ts> are they cheaper than pi's?

[10:40] <nacimmep> 10$ says she's idling in here logging
[10:40] <three14> but i'm sure the board size would need to be increased

[10:40] <megatog615> and being able to use the power connector for connectivity like a phone
[10:40] <three14> and if they increase the board size, add some damned mounting holes so i can affix it to whatever. none of this sandwiching in cases bs

[10:53] <ShiftPlusOne> I have a few theories (in the order of likelyhood). 1) The traces can't handle the power. 2) They want to be able to say that all you need is a 700mA supply. 3) Higher power causes EM emissions which mean they can't get FCC/CE markings
[10:53] <ShiftPlusOne> It would be nice to get an official answer though.
[10:53] <nacimmep> firehazard?
[10:53] <three14> i don't know why they included composite out, either. go boot the pi on a 19" crt television, startx and tell me how easy Scratch is to use.
[10:54] <three14> they could have simply given the option to use composite out via pin headers.
[10:54] <ShiftPlusOne> Meh, that's a matter of personal preference, and you can't please everyone.

[10:58] <Arch-iMac> three14: damnit..it dumped me into kernel debug
[10:58] <three14> Arch-iMac, what did you do?!
[10:58] <mythos> ShiftPlusOne, how much it cost?
[10:58] <ShiftPlusOne> mythos, yeah
[10:58] <Arch-iMac> three14: changed the arm_freq to 860
[10:59] <Arch-iMac> i installed webmin but that couldnt have caused it
[10:59] <mythos> ShiftPlusOne, 6 euros
[11:00] <three14> i know adding more stuff and replacing other things on the pi would increase the overall cost of the board. the solution is to charge schools $25/35, and charge everyone else $70

[11:02] <three14> nacimmep, who says you couldn't get a student discount ;-)
[11:02] <ShiftPlusOne> mythos, because pi outputs digital signal only and it sounds like that adapter doesn't convert it to analog, which you'd need (depending on your monitor). But I am not sure.
[11:02] <mythos> ShiftPlusOne, or do you mean, that it is too expensive? maybe

[11:04] <Arch-iMac> man im sure glad i got this 22$ raspberry case with all this romancing im doin to it

[11:21] <Arch-iMac> hmmm that certinatly would be better for definitive volts
[11:21] <haltdef> get a pandaboard, they have a barrel jack
[11:21] <mythos> i have one
[11:21] <mythos> but the pi is more fun ;)
[11:21] <Arch-iMac> heh
[11:21] <haltdef> mine's gathering dust in a drawer
[11:21] <haltdef> need to think of a use for it
[11:22] <three14> so does the beaglebone
[11:22] <Arch-iMac> i was looking at that
[11:23] <three14> i might still buy one
[11:24] <haltdef> <+three14> crt monitors keep you warm in the winter <- so does my u2711
[11:25] <haltdef> can feel the heat coming off the front, the top heat is even more intense :P
[11:27] <three14> the beaglebone wouldn't be so bad if the capes weren't so expensive.
[11:27] <three14> dvi-d cape is $50 usd
[11:28] <Arch-iMac> wow that pico projector is kewl
[11:28] <Arch-iMac> and...expensive
[11:29] <Arch-iMac> lol

[11:41] <three14> alright, i have to sleep. late folks.
[11:41] <megatog615> it exhibits the same issue when plugged directly into the pi and in the hub

[14:06] <SpeedEvil> Overclocking without overvolting can increase current, and increase the risk of electromigration induced failures.
[14:06] <ReggieUK> 3 days of oc'ing and that's what you're basing 'cool' on?
[14:07] <ReggieUK> the only reason people think overclocking is cool on a pi is because it doesn't void your warranty
[14:08] <SpeedEvil> If you'd be more than mildly inconvenienced if your Pi fails - don't. IMO
[14:08] <dunib> if overclocking was cool, they'd have simply set the base clock higher. :/

[14:21] <SpeedEvil> hmm
[14:21] <SpeedEvil> Maybe I'm mistaken.
[14:22] <NucWin> believe its as an offset with 0.025v steps

[18:23] <AthomIk> a lot exist...
[18:24] <trevorman> AthomIk: http://elinux.org/RPi_VerifiedPeripherals#SD_cards
[18:24] <megaproxy> awesome
[18:24] <megaproxy> now i just need a ir remote
[18:24] <AthomIk> megaproxy: arduino sensor can work on raspberry ?
[18:24] <megaproxy> then id need a arduino
[18:24] <trevorman> megaproxy: if you find a good one then tell me lol
[18:25] <trevorman> I'm still using a keyboard with mine
[18:25] <megaproxy> is it me
[18:25] <megaproxy> or is it still very slow at responding
[18:25] <trevorman> hm?
[18:25] <AthomIk> pins on raspberry can work like pins on arduino ?
[18:26] <megaproxy> mine is veeery slow
[18:26] <megaproxy> infact i htink it has crashed
[18:26] <trevorman> did you add a share?
[18:26] <megaproxy> yea
[18:26] <megaproxy> sftp..
[18:26] <trevorman> when its scanning then it takes forever and its sloooow
[18:26] <trevorman> uhhh. sftp is probably a bad idea
[18:26] <megaproxy> hm ok
[18:26] <megaproxy> ill set up network share.
[18:26] <trevorman> the extra crypto will make it painfully slow
[18:26] <AthomIk> lol, i try raspbian on qemu, and cannot log, root raspbian .... pfffff

[18:30] <megaproxy> what audio codecs?
[18:30] <megaproxy> i dont know this stuff myself...
[18:30] <megaproxy> lol
[18:31] <trevorman> not sure tbh
[18:31] <megaproxy> why cant they be like vlc
[18:31] <megaproxy> and play anything
[18:31] <bootc> AthomIk: it's in the forums somewhere
[18:31] <bootc> sorry I don't have any more info without looking for it myself
[18:31] <trevorman> no HW accel for anything but MPEG4 and h.264
[18:31] <AthomIk> why sd card work fine in qemu and not with raspberry..... pffffffffff
[18:32] <trevorman> lack of MPEG2 is slightly annoying. I can't get freeview to work :|
[18:32] <AthomIk> bootc: i have install cross compilator like your site, never see a comple img for raspberry, only kernel
[18:33] <Dysk> Does the chip have hardware support for MPEG2 (that's just not in the RPi binary blob) or not?
[18:33] <Dysk> AthomIk, http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?t=8071

[18:34] <Dysk> Well, that leaves some potential for it in the future sometime.
[18:34] <AthomIk> Dysk: ok thk
[18:36] <trevorman> Dysk: yeah. the idea of a codec pack you purchase later has been brought up by the RPi foundation but its just an idea at the moment. loads of complications like how to ensure the licensing is adhered to and how to collect the ???
[18:36] <Dysk> Yeah, of course. It's the sort of thing I see becoming more likely as the hardware ages and becomes less commercially relevant/current.

[18:44] <Wolfram74> hi, i have a query about setting up the OS on my SD card
[18:44] <Wolfram74> is now a good time?
[18:45] <trevorman> just ask the question instead of asking to ask. if somebody knows then they'll reply :)
[18:45] <Wolfram74> well, sometimes we're having off topic parties
[18:45] <Wolfram74> don't like interrupting
[18:45] <Wolfram74> anyway
[18:45] <Wolfram74> i installed raspian on my SD card, but it was /too/ bare bones for the level of experience i have
[18:45] <megaproxy> halp
[18:45] * megaproxy is so lost
[18:46] <Wolfram74> so at someones suggestion i got the debian squeeze distro
[18:46] <Wolfram74> and tried following the same instructions for installing the last one, and booted up my pi, but the raspian was still the distro being used
[18:46] <trevorman> megaproxy: wat
[18:46] <megaproxy> cifs
[18:46] <megaproxy> wat do
[18:46] <trevorman> cifs = windows file sharing
[18:47] <Wolfram74> so i'm thinking i did something wrong, how do i clear off a card before installing a new one
[18:47] <megaproxy> my server is ubuntu
[18:47] <megaproxy> D=
[18:47] <trevorman> megaproxy: yeah but its probably got samba installed
[18:47] <trevorman> which does CIFS
[18:47] <megaproxy> any idea how to configure it?
[18:47] <nidO> Wolfram74 if you're doing it from windows there's no need to, just write the new image using win32diskimager
[18:47] <trevorman> just try browsing to it from the rpi
[18:47] <Wolfram74> doing it from terminal on a mac
[18:47] <nidO> equally if you're using nic there's no need to, just dd the image over top of whatever's already on the card

[18:50] <megaproxy> awww yea
[18:50] <trevorman> smb = server message block = cifs
[18:50] <trevorman> smb is the old name for the protocol
[18:51] <trevorman> it should be a lot faster than trying to access it via sftp

[20:10] <three14> where are you guys living?

[20:10] <ReggieUK> co-op is awful
[20:10] <gordonDrogon> ours is good.
[20:10] <ReggieUK> we've got 2 in the area
[20:10] <ReggieUK> and 1 has been notoriously bad for 30 years
[20:10] <gordonDrogon> only one. it's our only big shop.
[20:11] <ReggieUK> the other is just a store that seems to change hands and always the same staff
[20:11] <ReggieUK> currently a co-op
[20:11] <gordonDrogon> I think I'm lucky where I live.
[20:11] <three14> It's tough in my area of the US. I can get plenty of locally sourced beef, etc. But unless it's the perfect time of the year, it's hard to get anything else. Right now I can get tons of veggies, though,. :-)

[20:11] <gordonDrogon> KazW, pps? Pulse per second?
[20:11] <KazW> gordonDrogon: Yes.
[20:11] <SpeedEvil> I order from tesco once a month and use the freezer a lot.
[20:12] <gordonDrogon> KazW, there is one PWM output.

[20:12] <gordonDrogon> KazW, the others can be controlled via software, but the jitter when tryting to do accurate pulses will be high.
[20:12] <KazW> gordonDrogon: Nope, pps is input, usually with micro second accuracy.
[20:13] <gordonDrogon> KazW, input from what? However you're not going to make that work in software.
[20:13] <three14> another problem in the US is free-range laws/labeling. just an fyi, the US free-range label can only be applied to chicken/pultry, and in order to qualify as free range, they just need to be marched, outside, around the slaughterhouse before slaughter.
[20:13] <SpeedEvil> I don't know if interrupts on the GPIO pins are supported.
[20:13] <three14> poultry*
[20:13] <SpeedEvil> In principle, it's quite possible with jitter of well under a millisecond
[20:13] <trevorman> KazW: timing on the RPi is slightly strange so it may not be suitable depending on your application
[20:13] <SpeedEvil> you have an interrupt handler, and a kernel module.
[20:13] <gordonDrogon> SpeedEvil, yes, they are - but at microsecont timings, it'll be close...
[20:14] <gordonDrogon> Linux is really not the best tool for that sort of timings & speed.
[20:14] <trevorman> an unadjusted clock will start differing from real time quite significantly on the rpi

[20:15] <KazW> but it wasn't actually done
[20:15] <gordonDrogon> oh - just do it on the serial port.
[20:15] <gordonDrogon> far easier.
[20:15] <KazW> gordonDrogon: That's not possible for stratum 0
[20:15] <trevorman> thats not a stratum 0 :P
[20:16] <gordonDrogon> KazW, Really? It didn't seem to stop me doing it.
[20:16] <trevorman> gordonDrogon: you hook it up to the serial handshake lines
[20:16] <KazW> gordonDrogon: A true stratum 0 uses pps in conjunction with serial
[20:16] * gordonDrogon shrugs.
[20:17] <trevorman> the serial data will say yeah time is BLAH and the serial line indicates precisely when that actually occurs

[21:06] <reider59> Yes, I need a few more bits. got the breadboard with the RPi kit I bought but I`ve been fooling with a rechargable battery, LEDs etc and it would be better to get another breadboard for that. I need to get a selection of resistors and some jumper wires.
[21:06] <reider59> some more LEDs too and maybe more switches, got two for now.

[21:22] <oldman> Do I need to install ssh server in order to ssh in from another machine on my lan? I am using the debian image.
[21:22] <tuxx> RaYmAn: well yea i know its possible but its not booting for me atm
[21:23] <mythos> oldman, 'apt-get install ssh' should be all you need
[21:23] <oldman> mythos: Ok so no ssh is installed initially?
[21:23] <_rp> apt-get install openssh-server
[21:24] <three14> oldman, it should be, and to enable it on boot you should only need to rename boot_enable_ssh.rc to boot.rc in /boot
[21:24] <mythos> oldman, i don't know. but that command would install it, if it isn't preinstalled
[21:26] <oldman> three14: Where are these files located /etc/ssh?
[21:27] <three14> boot_enable_ssh.rc? it's in /boot
[21:27] <three14> sudo mv /boot/boot_enable_ssh.rc /boot/boot.rc
[21:27] <three14> then sudo reboot
[21:27] <oldman> three14: Now I understand thanks.
