[0:14] <Mike632T> OK I've got my Pi communicating with an MCP23017 expander using Python with the python-smbus module but I was wondering how to do the same thing from C..?
[0:16] <mm0zct> GPIO?
[0:16] <mm0zct> no sorry
[0:16] <mm0zct> misread
[0:16] <mm0zct> perhaps..
[0:17] * ebswift (kvirc@ has joined #raspberrypi
[0:17] * PiBot sets mode +v ebswift
[0:17] <mm0zct> how do you talk to it in python?
[0:18] <mm0zct> I've only done gpio stuff in C/C++
[0:18] <Stoob> apparently the python-smbus module lets you do it

[0:28] * PiBot sets mode +v mlepage
[0:28] <mlepage> I forget, in Raspbian, how do I change my keyboard settings from UK back to normal?
[0:29] <ziltro> define normal?
[0:29] <Stoob> US probably.
[0:29] <ziltro> That's not normal. ;)
[0:29] <mlepage> Don't want pound symbol, want hash mark. US sure. (Though I am not in US)
[0:29] <Stoob> does anyone have a link to the most recent newegg sale ad

[0:31] <ziltro> I was about to try sorting out my keymap on here actually, although here is x86 Arch.
[0:32] <ziltro> Console. I don't seem to have AltGr keys.

[0:41] <wry> mlepage: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/KEYMAP
[0:41] <wry> (if its arch based, dunno about others)
[0:42] <mlepage> Raspian is debian based I believe
[0:42] <wry> Depends on which one.
[0:42] <wry> It can be Arch as well.
[0:43] <TeeCee> mlepage: "sudo dpkg-reconfigure keyboard-configuration" might help?
[0:43] <TeeCee> wry: Is there a Arch-based Raspbian too?
[0:43] <wry> yes.
[0:44] <chris_99> do all wifi usb devices need a usb hub?
[0:44] <chris_99> at the moment the driver seems to be loaded but no network interface is created
[0:44] <chris_99> i'm wondering if that's a symtom of lack of hub
[0:44] <ziltro> chris_99: Does it require firmware?
[0:45] <chris_99> yeah i _think_ i've installed that
[0:45] <wry> TeeCee: Go to "downloads" and scroll down to Arch.
[0:45] <ziltro> dmesg usually shows firmware loading progress IIRC
[0:45] <Mike632T> Tip to be able to access the /dev/I2C devices as an ordinary user add that user to the i2c group no more playing with LEDs as root...
[0:45] <mlepage> OK thanks guys. Right now though my biggest KB problem is huge lag and dropped keys.
[0:46] <chris_99> it doesn't seem to mention anything about firmware in my dmesg unfourtunately
[0:46] * kirin` (telex@xn--phnix-ibb.net) Quit (Ping timeout: 248 seconds)
[0:46] <ziltro> chris_99: How about 'ifconfig -a'?
[0:46] <mlepage> I have 1A wall wart and powered USB hub, still huge keybbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbboard issues (like this).
[0:46] <chris_99> it doesn't show up in there ziltro
[0:46] <Syliss> cool, rpi is on twit
[0:46] <ziltro> Ah ok. I don't know then. :)
[0:46] <chris_99> np
[0:47] <ziltro> I've killed 100% of my USB Wireless LAN devices.
[0:47] <ziltro> And when it died I bought a long cable.
[0:47] * Mike632T (~mike632t@host31-52-145-204.range31-52.btcentralplus.com) has left #raspberrypi
[0:47] <chris_99> heh

[0:47] * PiBot sets mode +v kirin`
[0:48] <mlepage> Is the GLESv2 stuff in /opt/vc the correct stuff to link to for hardware accelerated graphics (on RPi)?
[0:48] <plugwash> yeah
[0:49] * Berglund (~Berglund@h-59-58-110.a213.priv.bahnhof.se) Quit (Quit: Computer died.)

[0:49] * PiBot sets mode +v notfunk
[0:50] <mlepage> OK. And what other lib must I link in? EGL or something? I am using SDL 1.2 (via apt-get install libsdl-dev). It's linking to GLESv2 but complaining about a few undefined glX functions. But I don't want to run in unaccelerated X.
[0:50] * kirin` (telex@xn--phnix-ibb.net) Quit (Client Quit)
[0:54] <ziltro> Ah yes, I was probing the ISDN line at work.
[0:54] <ziltro> It seems to have three states, positive, negative and zero. It was either +- 100mV or +- 700mV, depending what was plugged in.
[0:55] <ziltro> Maybe I didn't measure it correctly.
[0:55] <ziltro> I was wondering if it would be possible for a RPi to talk to this somehow
[0:55] * chris_99 (~chris_99@unaffiliated/chris-99/x-3062929) Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[0:56] <ziltro> A couple of opto-isolators back to back should detect the three states, the output of each connected to a GPIO pin.
[0:56] <ziltro> Not quite sure the best way to generate the + and - voltages.

[1:00] <ebswift> what's the default raspbian root password? i tried raspbian
[1:01] <mlepage> try raspberry
[1:02] <ebswift> no good
[1:02] <ebswift> something went funny with passwords... after installing gnome-network-manager i couldn't login with the pi user anymore
[1:02] <ebswift> i managed to login as root (no password asked) so i could change the pi password
[1:03] <ebswift> actually, i'll just try that again, see if it'll let me change it for root
[1:04] <ziltro> If you can't work it out you could put the SD card in another machine and edit /etc/shadow

[1:15] <AnAvgNerd> Evening all. I just received my rpis and have a question about setting up the image so that ssh comes up on the initial boot; How? I'm using the recommended Weezy image. I don't have access to a compatible monitor currently, which is why this is an issue.
[1:20] <friggle> AnAvgNerd: it is enabled by default
[1:20] <AnAvgNerd> friggle: oh, really? I guess I was operating on old info
[1:20] <AnAvgNerd> I'll give it a go then. Thanks!

[1:21] <jondeaux> Question: I have a server running on my pi, development server running at localhost:8000. According to netstat localhost:8000 is listening, but I cannot connect. Any ideas
[1:21] <jondeaux> Django development server*
[1:21] <izibi> is there any lightweight network monitoring tool that you can recommend for running on a rpi?
[1:21] <mlepage> where is rpi-update?
[1:21] <friggle> AnAvgNerd: it will take a little longer than usual to start after booting the first time, because the ssh host keys need to be generated
[1:25] <jondeaux> anyone?
[1:26] * tracid (~tracid@unaffiliated/tracid) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[1:27] * mlepage (~pi@ Quit (Ping timeout: 245 seconds)
[1:30] <ziltro> jondeaux: Are you trying to connect from and to localhost? Is it IPv4 or IPv6?
[1:33] <jondeaux> ziltro: Yes. How can I tell if IPv4 or IPv6?
[1:34] <ziltro> jondeaux: netstat should say tcp or tcp6
[1:34] <ziltro> you might want to try just in case
[1:34] <jondeaux> tcp
[1:34] <ziltro> That's IPv4
[1:35] <jondeaux> I can ping localhost AND But I cannot ping :8000
[1:35] <ziltro> No, you can't ping a port.
[1:35] <jondeaux> I can't connect in a browser either
[1:36] <izibi> jondeaux: can you do curl ?
[1:37] <ziltro> Presumably it shows up in 'netstat -lt | grep 8000'?
[1:37] <izibi> jondeaux: just to be sure: are you running the browser on the rpi?
[1:37] <jondeaux> yes
[1:38] <ziltro> It is unlikely to be a firewall, but it could be I suppose
[1:38] <jondeaux> izibi: I can curl
[1:39] <jondeaux> ziltro: it shows up on netstat
[1:39] * Tomtiger11 (~tomtiger1@Tom4u/founder/tomtiger11) has joined #raspberrypi

[1:39] <izibi> jondeaux: but you can't access the same url from a browser? that's strange
[1:41] <Tomtiger11> ReggieUK: In the topic, change registered to identified
[1:42] <jondeaux> i'm using a vnc server to use midori on the pi. It says cannot connect to destination
[1:42] <jondeaux> would vnc have anything to do with it?
[1:43] * ReggieUK changes topic to 'Unofficial RaspberryPi IRC channel. Logs @ http://srv.datagutt1.com <> ** No Foul Language ** No unauthorised Bots ** <> Starting 9th July 2012 you will only be able to join #raspberrypi if you are identified w/ Nickserv. <>'
[1:44] <ReggieUK> thanks
[1:45] <Tomtiger11> Np
[1:46] <ziltro> Can people read the topic if they aren't already in here?
[1:47] <IT_Sean> Yes
[1:47] <ziltro> I got an error from the server when I tried to join: #raspberrypi: Cannot join channel (+r) - you need to be identified with services

[1:47] <IT_Sean> Aye, you need to be reg'd w/ nickserv to join the channel.
[1:47] <ziltro> Ah ok. I thought it was often private.
[1:48] <IT_Sean> Thetopic shows up in the master channel list
[1:48] <IT_Sean> and, i believe, if you do a /chanserv info on the channel. But don't quote me on that one

[3:12] <plugwash> what really got me about it was that he was looking for all this cash upfront to mass-produce a case
[3:13] <plugwash> yet the prices he was proposing were barely less than existing non mass-produced cases
[3:16] <yehnan> plugwash: excuse me, I just logged in. what case?
[3:17] <zgreg> https://dl.dropbox.com/u/15957408/raspicase1a.jpg
[3:17] <zgreg> what is it with heatsinks? I've seen a lot of people do that
[3:17] <ReggieUK> cos heat = wrong apparently
[3:17] <zgreg> wasn't it stated about a million times that this isn't necessary?
[3:17] <ReggieUK> if it's not frosty it must be faulty
[3:18] <ReggieUK> it was
[3:18] <ReggieUK> but who would believe experts?
[3:18] <ReggieUK> what's the point ;0
[3:18] <ReggieUK> ;)
[3:18] <plugwash> yehnan, http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1986127174/designing-an-affordable-and-beautiful-raspberry-pi
[3:18] <ReggieUK> can't remember the last time I saw a heatsink in a mobile phone
[3:18] <plugwash> and there was a corresponding forum thread which I don't have the URL for to hand
[3:19] <zgreg> moreover, these SoCs are typically specified to be quite resilient to high temperatures
[3:20] <ReggieUK> an am incredibly surprised that someone hasn't tried to strap a peltier to one yet

[5:13] <TeeCee> opposite of soft float
[5:13] <bryankemp> opposiute of soft float.
[5:13] <ziltro> Right. That explains it totally.
[5:14] <TeeCee> Exactly.
[5:14] <bryankemp> the ARM architecture is a RISC (Reduced Instruction Set) cpu.
[5:14] <ziltro> I prefer my floats so hard you can poke someone with them.
[5:14] * ebswift (kvirc@ Quit (Ping timeout: 255 seconds)
[5:15] <bryankemp> the cpu doesnt necessarily have instructions to handle floating point operations. so it has been handle via a 'soft
[5:15] <ziltro> Yes, I've heard of RISC. They were the future and going to take over... When I was at school... Seems it might be starting to happen. :)
[5:15] <bryankemp> 'ware emulation.
[5:15] <ziltro> Oh, FPU?
[5:15] <ziltro> Sort of. Not an 80387 thoug.
[5:15] <ziltro> So it is actually hardware float?
[5:15] <bryankemp> well the Pi and some others have a dedicated piece of hardware to the the 'float' operations
[5:16] <ziltro> Ok, that makes sense.
[5:16] <ziltro> Couldn't work out what hard meant.
[5:17] <bryankemp> I don't know the specific details, but I gathered that when they built the 'wheezy' based image originally, time was a factor so the hardfloat changes we not implemented.
[5:17] <ziltro> Seems the description could perhaps use four extra letters to make it obvious. :)
[5:18] <ziltro> I thought Linux required a hardware FPU, or maybe that was when I was messing about with it on a 486.
[5:18] <bryankemp> I have not tested to see what the actual speed increases are, I assume someone else has.
[5:19] <ziltro> I guess it depends if you're using floating point maths or not. :)
[5:19] <bryankemp> well, in the kernel config there are options to use a FP emulator.
[5:19] <NucWin> there is blog post linked on webbie for performance stats between hf and sf
[5:19] <ziltro> Ah okay, that's probably "new". As in since 486es because non-popular.
[5:20] <NucWin> i have a 486 DX2 floating around somewhere
[5:20] <NucWin> just the cpu not a whole computer
[5:20] <ziltro> I believe I may have one or more in a pile.

[10:01] <reider59> It seems faster still than Wheezy, same config-maybe better, more robust and some stuff that didn`t work before like the connect 4 game now does. Also I see no CPU freeze like I occasionally did, sometimes opening a file in a VNC window would cause one, not now. also VNC is just as fast as being on a direct screen. The web browser is really fast now too.
[10:02] <reider59> I got RPi.GPIO working quite quickly too so my LCD stuff is working again

[10:04] <cmug> once it recovered after 10sec, the other time I had to reset power
[10:05] <reider59> Did the freeze lift or did you have to reboot
[10:05] <cmug> I didn't know the ip at the time, so couldn't check via ssh if it was only an X freeze or a complete system freeze
[10:05] <reider59> OK, well that`s not bad, it used to do it all the time. But if it cannot follow a link it may do that too.
[10:06] <gordonDrogon> booyaa, no more rpi-update ?
[10:06] <cmug> I don't know how midori works, but it felt like it was rendering the page in the background (picture intensive page) and that caused the thing to halt
[10:07] <reider59> I watched the CPU graph and it went full green but then I saw a chink of black, back to green then it dropped back to reasonable levels. Also try going in on SSH if it really gets stuck and issue a sudo reboot
[10:07] <reider59> that net wotsit (forget the name) is quicker than Midori
[10:07] <cmug> when the X is slow, nothing will be quick

[10:35] <reider59> ?2.99 for the 65 sorry, just looked.....http://www.tandyonline.co.uk/
[10:36] <reider59> They have a solderless breadboard kit in with jumper wires, contents 140, good for anyone else starting out. ?5.99 not a bad price either. A similar though bigger case I got was ?10.99 from Maplins
[10:36] <gordonDrogon> Gadgetoid, it's working - just making it presentable.
[10:37] <cmug> Can anybody suggest where to buy a adjustable psu for my breadboard etc?
[10:37] <gordonDrogon> it's only workable via the sysfs interface right now, but it's fast enough for what we need...
[10:37] <gordonDrogon> cmug, what country? if the UK, then maplin have some basic ones that look OK (not got one, but considering one for myself)
[10:37] <cmug> gordonDrogon: europe, no uk plugs ;)
[10:38] <gordonDrogon> cmug, get a travel adapter :)
[10:38] <Davespice> has anyone here done any ogles bench marking to see if back face culling is actually slower than just drawing your scene straight up?
[10:38] <cmug> got plenty of those
[10:38] <gordonDrogon> or just cut the plug off and put on a local one.

[10:41] <gordonDrogon> yea :)
[10:41] <gordonDrogon> and it's a bit pricey, however ..
[10:41] <cmug> there is a 1.5A one for 65??? sold locally
[10:42] <cmug> 5A one is 135???
[10:42] <gordonDrogon> I made myself one some years back - simple 5v and 12v outputs at one amp inside a black plastic box with linear regulators!

[10:43] <gordonDrogon> reider59, yea, click on the link and it takes you to maplis site with the 79 price tag...
[10:43] <cmug> I can change a lightbulb and thats about it

[11:47] <RichiH> so.... gooseberry costs similar to raspberry
[11:47] <RichiH> worth getting both?
[11:47] <booyaa> gooseberry?
[11:47] <Gadgetoid> RichiH: Gooseberry is just a mainboard from a cheap chinese tablet
[11:48] <booyaa> ah
[11:48] <RichiH> Gadgetoid: and?
[11:48] <Gadgetoid> RichiH: It's junk.
[11:49] <Gadgetoid> And pitching it as an alternative to the Pi is just an underhanded attempt to steal their thunder and fob off some piece of cheap tat as a worhwhile board
[11:50] <rm> what do you plan to use both for
[11:50] <rm> if for a media center with a HDMI TV, then just get the MK802
[11:51] <johntramp> i am guessing the fact they didn't develop the board means they wont be able to support it either

[12:02] <zgreg> no ethernet, hdmi, etc.
[12:03] <joar> I need more than that, and I'm willing to sacrifice the performance.
[12:03] <Gadgetoid> I think it has HDMI, but no ethernet
[12:03] <reider59> Draft issue 4 of MagPi here.....http://issuu.com/themagpi/docs/the_magpi_issue4_draft
[12:03] <Gadgetoid> It's pretty scant on specs or details, the guy selling them can't even say if they have any possibility of GPIO
[12:04] <Gadgetoid> Calling it the Gooseberry is also pretty bold, it all reeks of silly popularity hijacking??? but with any luck all the XMBC crowd will bog off to it
[12:05] <booyaa> yup
[12:05] <rm> it will not
[12:06] <cmug> so whats wrong with xbmc on rpi?
[12:06] <rm> there's simply no reason to prefer that bare board

[12:09] <rm> cmug, HDMI is nothing surprising, RPi/gooseberry/mk802 have it as well; a VGA output on the other hand is probably like the first/second most requested feature for the RPi, I'd guess

[12:19] <booyaa> heh
[12:19] <gordonDrogon> right. think that's almost it. just a bit of documentaiton and a test to write now.
[12:19] <dwatkins> clearly I should take pictures of my Lego cases for Pi and holders for my phones ;)
[12:19] <gordonDrogon> the gpio program is getting bigger..
[12:19] <gordonDrogon> gpio edge 0 falling
[12:19] <Gadgetoid> Gadget-Work: I use my Pi as an ethernet gateway for the Arduino :)
[12:19] <Gadget-Work> gordonDrogon, nice one. When do we get ISP programming :)
[12:19] <dwatkins> Gadgetoid: that looks very interesting
[12:20] <Gadget-Work> Gadgetoid, sledgehammer to crack a nut
[12:20] <Gadgetoid> If only I could redirect highlights :)
[12:20] <gordonDrogon> Gadget-Work, isp programming is there - see http://project-downloads.drogon.net/files/ for avrdudes.

[12:20] <gordonDrogon> I'll get the Gerboard pages live later today, but I have to go to RAMM for an event this afternoon/evening.
[12:21] <Gadgetoid> gordonDrogon: is the latest version of wiringPi ready to shove in the Repo?

[12:27] <gordonDrogon> Gadgetoid, not yet- working on docs and examples.
[12:28] <gordonDrogon> Gadgetoid, no wories for now.
[12:28] <Gadgetoid> Guess it's still early days for it to be a big deal, but I want to keep WiringPi Python ahead of RPi.GPIO
[12:28] <Gadgetoid> So the unified solution can win win win :D
[12:28] <gordonDrogon> There's nothing new in it... othe than the waitForInterrupt () call, the simplified pthreads stuff, switch to real-time/high priority mode and ... er ...
[12:28] <gordonDrogon> license change to lgpl.
[12:29] <gordonDrogon> you can do waitForInterrupt without being root too, but you need to be root to change priority.
[12:30] <Gadgetoid> waitForInterrupt is pretty big news, though, and getting it to work in things like Ruby could be??? interesting
[12:30] * Lupinedk is now known as lupinedk
[12:30] <Gadgetoid> I suspect I can kick off a thread to handle interrupts, though, very excited to try it
[12:30] <gordonDrogon> just thought of a way to cache the interrupt handler file descriptors too.
[12:31] <gordonDrogon> in C, you can declare a function with: PI_THREAD (foo) then start it in the main program with piThread (foo);
[12:31] <gordonDrogon> they're just a simplified way to access pthreads - and are fully compatable with them.
[12:32] <gordonDrogon> I've also added a simplified mutex method too to lock globals between threads.
[12:32] <gordonDrogon> piLock (x) and piUnlock (x) ;
[12:33] <mervaka> ah i love C

[12:36] <mervaka> oh
[12:36] <gordonDrogon> mervaka, er, haven't you been able to structA = structB for some time in C ?
[12:36] <mervaka> yes, but i only wanted certain records from structA
[12:37] <mervaka> struct js_event, if you're wondering. the timestamp takes up half the space, and i dont need it.
[12:37] <Xark> gordonDrogon: Do you know offhand what needs to be done to let Raspian see an Arduino Uno (so it shows up under serial ports)?
[12:37] <gordonDrogon> ok - but for whole structures, copying has been part of C since C90 ..

[12:38] <mervaka> i'm just quite glad to be coding C again instead of python. i can do cool stuff like this.

[13:08] <dogmatic69> looking at getting a raspberry. Is there anything to know about "type B:
[13:09] <booyaa> what do you need to know? the raspberrypi.org faq is fairly good
[13:09] <Xark> dogmatic69: "Model B" you mean? The only model available at this time (the diff is the ethernet and 2nd USB port).
[13:09] <booyaa> also there's the rpi hub on elinux.org http://elinux.org/R-Pi_Hub
[13:09] <dogmatic69> ah ok, Its just the "better" model
[13:09] <dogmatic69> Xark: ye, fumbled the kb
[13:09] <mervaka> to be honest
[13:09] <booyaa> model a not yet available will be aimed at educational institutions
[13:09] <mervaka> i dont see much point in manufacturing the type A
[13:10] <Xark> dogmatic69: It is the only model currently. The Model A is supposed to come out in the next few months for $10 less (and no ethernet and only 1 USB port).
[13:10] <dogmatic69> cool. I need the eth
[13:10] <Xark> mervaka: A lot of people who want to use it for a "high end" Arduino see no need for ethernet and 2nd USB (and the extra power wasting ethernet/hub chip).
[13:11] <dogmatic69> also poor schools
[13:11] <mervaka> true i guess, when buying in numbers..

[14:34] <urs> I watched the movie "Brazil" on my Rpi, does that count?
[14:34] <stealth``> then not me...
[14:34] <stealth``> haha
[14:35] <akSeya> lol
[14:35] <akSeya> you know.. i got mine already.. but.. instead of the normal US$35 + U$20 for shipping, i had do pay +U$100 taxes :(
[14:35] <akSeya> this was very sad
[14:36] <stealth``> that is sad... did the guys at customs said why you had to pay all that in tax? I thought it would normally be 60% (I'm brazilian, but I have moved out of Brazil a few years ago)
[14:38] <akSeya> well, i paid US$55 in to newark, but in the invoice was described US$70
[14:38] <akSeya> then taxes plus some UPS charging gave that total ammount

[14:41] <akSeya> or at least reduce them..
[14:42] <akSeya> i'm registering in rs to see the shipping methods.. UPS was charged, but I guess if I get EMS it would be sheaper
[14:42] <stealth``> what about if they charge you one invoice for the pi (U$25 or U$35? I forgot), attached that to be delivered to you, charge you on another invoice for the other fees and stuff, and then, since it's below 50, you wouldn't get charged tax? (check the import law to see if that still applies or if it's an old thing) does it make sense?
[14:43] <stealth``> but then, this is something you'd have to discuss with the seller, to check the possibility and if it actually works

[15:46] <dirty_d> gordonDrogon, does that program use an actual hardware interrupt? or is it jsut like polling the pin?
[15:47] <gordonDrogon> dirty_d, it's an actual hardware interrupt.

[15:47] <hagg> on some platforms for(;;) uses less cycles than while(true)

[15:49] <dirty_d> gordonDrogon, ahh i see, i thought you made the driver yourself

[17:13] <dirty_d> gordonDrogon, seems like if you want high performance io a very simple custom driver should be used

[17:14] <dirty_d> the built in gpio is very generic

[17:14] <ziltro> Or would rubber bands hold it in, or... Something.
[17:14] <dirty_d> and maybe a simple driver for interrupts/signals
[17:14] <Adya> I'll try it now

[17:40] <mikey_w> from your client.

[18:35] <longbyte1> what I ACTUALLY WANTED to do with an rpi
[18:36] <ziltro> I don't think that's so hard. Step one: Install SSH server.

[18:36] <longbyte1> sshd
[18:36] <ziltro> Even easier.
[18:36] <longbyte1> Next, install TightVNC.
[18:36] <ziltro> Oh, headless and GUI, okay.

[18:37] <ziltro> Strangely all of the uses I want to put my RPi/s to are headless or console, so I keep forgetting it can even do graphics.

[18:37] <ziltro> Because it is cool?
[18:38] <longbyte1> Why you can't just use your own computer to code python/scratch/whatevs
[18:38] <ziltro> Because they aren't allowed to, or can't, mess about with any other computer/s they have access to?
[18:38] <longbyte1> Well, that's one reason.
[18:38] <ziltro> Because that might break windowzOMG
[18:38] <MrZYX> because they can let a LED blink :P
[18:38] <ziltro> I don't know, it depends on the situation. But to own your own computer, that's cool.
[18:39] <longbyte1> But if you're using an rpi, it's for learning linux.
[18:39] <longbyte1> And python.

[19:12] <MrZYX> it's okay
[19:12] <jdeisenberg> Everything else I've read says "5V, 700 mA"
[19:12] <ReggieUK> amperage is pretty irrelevant
[19:12] <jdeisenberg> I just don't want to see blue sparks the first time I plug it in :)
[19:12] <cmug> 700mA minimum, 1000mA is ok
[19:13] <ReggieUK> as long as it can faithfully supply =>700ma @ 5v it'll be fine
[19:13] <jdeisenberg> hmm. new meaning for BSOD: blue sparks of death.
[19:14] <ziltro> As long as the voltage is right there's no "too high" for amps.
[19:14] <ziltro> If you were to buy a 5V 1000A power supply, you might notice it in size, weight and cost. ;)

[19:15] <ReggieUK> oh whoops :D
[19:16] <longbyte1> You can power an rpi through the usb slots and not through the microusb

[19:16] <cmug> longbyte1: read the forums, it was mentioned somewhere that you shouldn't do that
[19:16] <longbyte1> I tried using a 2 female 1 male cable
[19:16] <ReggieUK> if you do then you've either circumvented the polyfuse or got lucky enough that they blew so hard that they shorted the usb sockets just right when you did
[19:16] <friggle> jdeisenberg: if you're on Linux, you can just unzip -p 2012-07-15-wheezy-raspbian.zip | sudo dd of=/dev/whatever bs=4M which is pretty darn handy
[19:17] <ziltro> There's a difference between 'can' and 'should', but that is interesting... :)
[19:17] <jdeisenberg> friggle: Damn, I should have thought of that.
[19:17] <ziltro> I assume you mean power it from the USB type A sockets, as opposed to reverse-voltage?
[19:17] <nid0> longbyte1: its well known that if your hub leaks power upstream itll supply enough power through the sockets to light up the power light on the pi
[19:17] <nid0> but not enough to actually boot it unless as ReggieUK mentioned you mess with the polyfuses
[19:17] <ziltro> Ah okay.
[19:17] <ReggieUK> you are only ever going to manage 280ma back through the usb ports on the pi
[19:17] <ReggieUK> 140ma each
[19:17] <longbyte1> So I put my usb hub on the male, and one female on the rpi, and one female on the usb ac adapter
[19:18] <ReggieUK> over that per port and the polyfuses will start to kick in and the voltage will drop off
[19:18] <longbyte1> And it immediately powered on
[19:19] <nid0> powered on as in the power light came on, or booted?

[19:24] <ziltro> Luckily I'm not.
[19:24] <jdeisenberg> oh damn. my connector from the charger is mini usb, not micro usb :(
[19:25] <longbyte1> I would need two power sources one way or another
[19:25] <ziltro> How many amps can a micro USB connector handle?
[19:25] <longbyte1> since my usb applicances cease to work with only one
[19:25] <ReggieUK> plugwash, wouldn't you need to use 5v for Vusb?
[19:25] <ziltro> Its like we're using nearly 1 amp on the smallest USB connector available
[19:26] <ReggieUK> it'll be fine
[19:26] <ziltro> I'm just curious what the maximum is.
[19:26] <plugwash> ReggieUK, sure if you want USB perhipherals
[19:26] <nid0> ziltro: in theory microusb is rated to a max of 2 amps
[19:26] <ziltro> Would the ethernet chip require 5v? That is USB.

[19:28] <ReggieUK> just Vusb and the ldo's need whatever they need above their output to run
[19:28] <Stoob> ziltro: the minimum rating for the micro usb connector to meet specifications is 1.8A
[19:28] <plugwash> The SOCs "battery" pin is connected to the 5V rail too
[19:28] <Stoob> in other words, a microusb connector must be able to support at least 1.8Amps
[19:29] <plugwash> I suspect it will be fine with 3.3V on the "battery" pin but we have no documentation to confirm/refute that
[19:29] <ziltro> Is that for battery voltage monitoring?
[19:29] <Stoob> (and that's just for the power contacts)
[19:29] <ReggieUK> now I've seen that picture I'm even more confused
[19:29] <ziltro> I think 3.2v is the lowest a LiIon cell should run at.
[19:30] <plugwash> AIUI there is a switched mode converter inside the SOC that supplies the core voltage
[19:30] <plugwash> and it's powered through the "battery" pin
[19:30] <Stoob> ziltro: Check out "Contact Current Rating"
[19:30] <plugwash> ziltro, yeah that is what I was thinking too

[19:36] <longbyte1> okay
[19:36] <longbyte1> well
[19:36] <Gadgetoid> Oh look, someone actually died because some of our stupid local councils think turning off street lights at midnight is a good idea
[19:36] <ziltro> With cheerleaders in teh background.
[19:36] <longbyte1> I gotta go
[19:37] <ziltro> I used to live in a vllage which had almost no street lights.
[19:37] <nid0> Gadgetoid: source?
[19:37] <Gadgetoid> nid0: news on the tellybox
[19:37] <ziltro> It had three, but we ignore them.
[19:37] <ziltro> So I always carry a torch now.
[19:37] <ziltro> Torches have got to be cheaper than street lamps.
[19:37] <ziltro> Even mine which take LiIon cells.

[19:39] <ziltro> So they don't dent your car?
[19:40] <Gadgetoid> Do they even consider the environmental impact from the increased use of Taxis, rather than simply walking home on drunk-power
[19:40] <nid0> increased use of taxis is increased use of Public Transport though and is therefore by default a Good Thing

[19:43] <lenz> and no usb
[19:43] <lenz> I saw it on forums
[19:43] <Gadgetoid> lenz: Do you have a display connected at all? have you verified it's even booting?
[19:43] <Gadgetoid> (must ask the dumb questions first!)
[19:43] <ziltro> The ethernet is connected to USB.
[19:43] <rm> "I Have No Network And I Must Stream"
[19:44] <lenz> Gadgetoid , I have no hdmi monitor

[19:44] <lenz> MrZYX , 5v 350ma
[19:44] <Gadgetoid> 350!!!!?
[19:45] <lenz> too low?
[19:45] <jdeisenberg> lenz: we were just discussing that sort of thing :)
[19:45] <Gadgetoid> Yeah??? a little...
[19:45] <nid0> so your pi isnt even booting.
[19:45] <ziltro> That'll power the power LED just fine.
[19:45] <Gadgetoid> ziltro: Ayooo!
[19:45] <nid0> your pi needs a barest absolute minimum of about 450ma to boot, assuming you have no usb or ethernet plugged in
[19:45] <lenz> hehe
[19:45] <nid0> add 100ma ish for each of the three ports in use
[19:45] <Gadgetoid> lenz: Simply put, you want a supply that will deliver on promises of 1A or higher to be safe
[19:45] <lenz> guys ))) its bad ????
[19:45] <lenz> :D
[19:46] <rm> and multiply the result by 2

[19:47] <hetii> Hi :>
[19:48] <jdeisenberg> Central Computer == local store where I live. They have just about every kind of adapter you could imagine.
[19:48] <jdeisenberg> hi hetii.
[19:48] <lenz> by the way, whu I can not power up PI from my laptop's usb?
[19:48] <nid0> you can
[19:48] <ziltro> I ordered some PSUs from RS wehn I ordered my Pis. Apparently they do 1.2A, which is nice.
[19:48] <Gadgetoid> lenz: In theory you should be able to, depends how good your laptop is
[19:48] <nid0> assuming you arent in turn loading the pi down with usb devices
[19:48] <lenz> this source is also has low amperage?
[19:48] <Gadgetoid> Some do admittedly suck at delivering a decent amount of currant
[19:48] <ziltro> But I ordered the Europlug version rather then BS1363, because they were cheaper.
[19:49] <hetii> i successful run my Pi board at 1050 MHz ;) after that i read on the wiki that SoC had warranty bit, that i set when someone play with over voltage settings :)
[19:49] <ziltro> A computer's USB port should be able to deliver 500mA.
[19:50] <lenz> Gadgetoid. I have a lot of adapters, will try to find 5v!
[19:50] <lenz> Thank you all friends!
[19:50] <jdeisenberg> have to go to a meeting. Thanks for the information, everyone.

[19:50] <plugwash> Gadgetoid, the Pi has some protection but it's meant as a last ditch measure and is not gauranteed to stop damage
[19:50] <rm> afaik some standard says that full 500mA are only to be provided if a device registers itself as an USB device
[19:50] <hetii> but whatever... as far as i see on schematic audio output is done just by using pwm :(
[19:50] <rm> not over a dumb power-only connection
[19:50] <plugwash> rm, that is BS
[19:51] * jdeisenberg (~jdeisenbe@ has left #raspberrypi
[19:51] <plugwash> devices aren't meant to pull more than 100ma without enumerating first but there is no requirement for hosts to enforce that
[19:51] <hetii> what is their resolution and what about using some gpio for microphone ?
[19:51] <nid0> rm, in theory power over 100ma needs to be negotiated from a data port but its generally not enforced
[19:51] <rm> right
[19:52] <ziltro> hetii: That's what I've heard. Does overclocking make the audio faster? :)

[19:55] <ziltro> Wow, RS orders have gone up to 19 weeks delivery time. They were at 11 weeks when I ordered.
[19:55] <nid0> thats probably because theyve just opened up to general + multiple orders and probably suddenly had another 6 figures of orders come in
[19:57] <plugwash> I've also noticed that for multiple orders RS are CONSIDERABLY cheaper than farnell
[19:57] <ziltro> Farnell didn't have multiple orders when I looked.
[19:57] <ziltro> But you could presumably order again and again
[19:57] <ziltro> And they might combine deliverty but who knows.
[19:58] <rm> RS is a mess
[19:58] <rm> pi.rsdelivers.com redirects me to a country selection now
[19:58] <plugwash> ziltro, at least for the UK farnell always roll delivery into the price of the products, they don't charge it seperately
[19:58] <rm> but http://raspberrypi.rsdelivers.com/default.aspx?cl=1 does not
[19:58] <plugwash> and they are offering no volume discounts on the Pi according to their websites
[19:58] <rm> 1st site has the Pi 1.5x more expensive than the 2nd
[19:59] <ziltro> plugwash: RS delivery stayed the same no matter how much I ordered...
[19:59] <plugwash> ziltro, indeed it does
[19:59] <plugwash> which means for single units farnell are slightly cheaper but for large orders RS are consdierablly cheaper
[19:59] <ziltro> I suspect my Farnll order won't arrive. I think they asked for the cardholder address and I geve the delivery address.
[20:00] <ziltro> Also there's no gurantee on either that it won't be sign-for.

[20:08] <hetii> ok, after few hours of play i can said that Pi is a nice toy, but to using it for something useful a lot of programming work need to be done :(
[20:09] <Gadgetoid> and what SD card, too!
[20:09] <Gadgetoid> hetii: isnt that the point?
[20:10] <w0m> hetii: what's your idea of, "useful"?
[20:10] <ziltro> For me useful would be mpd+ncmpcpp, or ssh + rdiff-backup.
[20:10] <ziltro> Those being two main uses I have thought up so far.
[20:10] <lenz> Gadgetoid. i boutht only board, withouth sdcard and power supply.

[20:11] <Gadgetoid> the Pi, for me, has been a useful catalyst for learning!
[20:11] <hetii> well... in my case something like widi or some simple linux thin client with web browser :)
[20:11] <Gadgetoid> lenz: it wont do much without an SD card, ie: it will do precisely nothing
[20:11] <plugwash> peba, dunno i've heard some people are trying but I dunno if they are having any success
[20:11] <Gadgetoid> lenz: but most cards will do, if you have one kicking about

[20:12] <ziltro> Like a PC with no hard disk or 'BIOS'

[20:14] <hetii> what about using directfb as bridge for window manager ?
[20:14] <lenz> Gadgetoid, thnx! :)
[20:14] <hetii> did someone play with it already ?

[20:15] <MrZYX> he means 4.5
[20:15] <Gadgetoid> err??? yeah. you want exactly 5v!!
[20:16] <dirty_d> anyone have any working GPIO code and want to try a kernel module i made?
[20:16] <ziltro> Would 4.5v with enough current not work? I mean it might not power external USB devices, but wouldn't everything onboard work?
[20:16] <Gadgetoid> dirty_d: does the module make working GPIO code not work?
[20:16] <dirty_d> its for userspace gpio pin change interrupts via signal handlers
[20:17] <Gadgetoid> ziltro: I'd hate to think what 4.5v would do, depends how voltage is split to run the CPU
[20:17] <dirty_d> Gadgetoid, i been able to use it yet because im at work
[20:18] <Gadgetoid> Sounds awesome! sadly I, too, have no time :(
[20:18] <dirty_d> id need it write a userspace program also that sets up the GPIO and interrupt registers
[20:18] <Gadgetoid> sounds a lot like what Gordon has done recently, the more the merrier!
[20:19] <plugwash> ziltro, it might
[20:19] <plugwash> it almost certainly would if you replaced the 3.3V regulator with an ultra low dropout model
[20:20] <plugwash> I strongly suspect you could also replace the 3.3V regulator with a wire link and run off 3.3V
[20:21] <hetii> hmm
[20:22] <hetii> but the external devices that are connected to Pi usb don`t use 3.3v but are connected direct into 5v bus via fuses.
[20:23] <plugwash> Sure I was just talking about running the Pi itself
[20:23] <lenz> Gadgetoid, Ifound 5v power supply
[20:23] <Walther> I'm currently using the Hexxeh Raspbian image. Are there reasons why I should dd the newest "recommended" image?

[20:24] <Gadgetoid> Walther: only your own curiosity at the moment, if it ain't broke, don't fix it!

[20:35] <hetii> Did someone know more about this issue ?
[20:38] <ReggieUK> yes
[20:38] <ReggieUK> it will never be fixed on the current board revision
[20:38] <ReggieUK> no amount of driver fiddling will change that

[20:39] * mjr (mjr@shadow.rauhala.org) Quit (Quit: Scheduled maintenance.)
[20:39] <dirty_d> whats the actual problem?
[20:40] <ReggieUK> sure, if you can design a way to get the appropriate voltage to the sd card at the right time, probably fixup all the driver fixes that were fixed to make the newer cards work at the higher voltages :)
[20:40] <ReggieUK> apart from that, not much
[20:41] <hetii> ReggieUK: as i assume the voltage cannot be set staticly ?
[20:41] <dirty_d> the voltages changes?
[20:41] <dirty_d> i was thinking a supply voltage problem
[20:41] <friggle> it's the signalling voltage
[20:42] <dirty_d> what is it and what is it supposed to be?
[20:42] <friggle> dirty_d: high speed cards would like to switch down to 1.8V
[20:43] <hetii> we can add additional driver between SD slot and board :)
[20:43] <dirty_d> so wouldnt a voltage divider do the trick?
[20:43] <ReggieUK> not as simple as that
[20:43] <dirty_d> or does it have to start at the higher voltage and switch after you put it in "high speed mode"
[20:44] <ReggieUK> it's got to know when to change the voltage and have a method to switch from 3.3 to 1.8v
[20:44] <dirty_d> perhaps a few transistors resistors and driven by some gpio lines
[20:44] <hetii> i want to definitely try to build this hack and check if it will increase IO performance.

[20:46] <Leestons> Got my PI today :D, my power supply has a different end so can't use it :( Luck just isn't on my side.
[20:46] <ReggieUK> it'll be the mmc driver hetii
[20:47] <ReggieUK> and not really much other information apart from reading the sd spec. to see how it does it for the different cards
[20:47] <ReggieUK> you might actually get performance out of it using the squeeze image
[20:47] <hetii> why squeeze ?
[20:47] <dirty_d> i think it would be a lot easier just to switch the rootfs over from the sd to an external hdd
[20:48] <ReggieUK> because that would be the image that was released before anyone started fixing the drivers
[20:48] <hetii> ahh ok .
[20:49] <dirty_d> shouldnt you be able to change cmdline.txt to set the root to an external hdd?
[20:49] <ReggieUK> yup
[20:49] <ReggieUK> usb hdds aren't necessarily practical though
[20:49] <hetii> ok need to read more about sd spec to see what exactly and when the driver try set to build proper proxy interface :)

[20:50] <dirty_d> how does SD speed compare to a flash drive
[20:50] <ReggieUK> sd speed is ~20MB/s max with the current drivers (won't get any faster than that either)
[20:50] <ReggieUK> no idea on a flash drive
[20:51] <hetii> ReggieUK: well my card in write have around 5Mb/s
[20:51] <ReggieUK> nothing will help that poor fella then
[20:51] <hetii> and as we can see on wiki only one card had there around 20MB/s
[20:52] <ReggieUK> no
[20:52] <hetii> btw not cheap one.
[20:52] <ReggieUK> again no
[20:52] <hetii> ?
[20:52] <hetii> :)
[20:52] <ReggieUK> plenty of people reported that their cards worked faster than 5MB/s
[20:52] <ReggieUK> ignore the wiki, it's probably wrong

[20:57] <hetii> ok few TODO for my PI, glue additional radiator, build proxy hardware for sdcard for power issue, check system speed from USB dongle. See if some GPIO can be used for MIC input ;>
[20:59] <Leestons> additional radiator? I thought they didn't get hot at all
[20:59] <hetii> ahh and i forgot, clone myself to have a time to do all of those things :)
[20:59] <Leestons> will be able to find out myself when my power supply arrives on Saturday
[20:59] <hetii> my board will be overclocek to 1050Mhz :>
[20:59] <Leestons> ahh makes sense.
[21:00] <hetii> general my board will be mounted inside LCD screen so i can use his case as a radiator :)
[21:00] <hetii> but we will see :>
[21:01] <Leestons> I knew the Pi's were small but it's hard to realise just how much until you actually see it

[21:04] <hetii> now i suppose will need solder them out if will put it screen :(
[21:04] <ReggieUK> you should see the prototype usb stick versions Leestons
[21:04] <hetii> theladdie: hi :)
[21:04] <ziltro> I believe the GPIO connectors weren't meant to be soldered.
[21:04] <ReggieUK> much smaller :D
[21:05] <ReggieUK> with a camera on them just to make sure you know how cool they are
[21:05] <ziltro> Hmm, I wonder if it would be possible to convert the audio output from stereo to balanced?
[21:05] <hetii> ?
[21:05] <ziltro> There's too many cameras in this country already; we don't need more.
[21:05] <theladdie> anyone know the full specs for the camera?

[21:06] <theladdie> hah
[21:06] <ziltro> Instead of left & right, set the PWM so that one 'channel' is always teh opposite to the other.
[21:06] <theladdie> I was thinking of putting a webcam on the pi and sit it out the window... have it timelapse untill my drive is full
[21:06] <hetii> yep but why you need such things :)?
[21:07] <ReggieUK> can't you just set the output to mono?
[21:07] <ziltro> That would be unbalanced.
[21:07] <ziltro> I want balanced stereo, but that would of course require using more GPIO pins and filtering.
[21:07] <ziltro> I want balanced because that's the way things are done in professional audio... :)
[21:08] * Walther highfives ziltro
[21:08] <Walther> Now what are you doing, exactly?
[21:08] <ziltro> Balanced mono as a software hack would be fun.
[21:08] <hetii> ach seeee:) profesionall audio from PWM :D
[21:08] <ziltro> Yes. haha
[21:08] <ReggieUK> but how does making one pwm do the opposite of the other make it balanced stereo?
[21:08] <ziltro> I'm doing... Amateur dramatics. which is about as unprofessional as you can get.
[21:09] <ziltro> ReggieUK: That would be balanced mono.
[21:09] <ziltro> I want to create a music playing flight case with a pair of RPis and a screen and keyboard and balanced outputs.
[21:10] <ziltro> So both boxes play exactly the same thign at the same time, so if one dies I can eaily switch over to the other.
[21:10] <hetii> one dies ?
[21:10] <ziltro> Yes. Crashes, flash drive dies, catches fire, whatever.
[21:10] <hetii> why they will dies ?:)
[21:11] <hetii> hmm
[21:11] <ziltro> I don't want to be mid-show with no way to play the music.

[21:11] <ziltro> Everything dies. :)
[21:11] <Gadget-Mac> ziltro: you can get convertor boxes from non balanced, to balanced.
[21:11] <ReggieUK> you don't have enough pwms to do balanced stereo
[21:11] <Gadget-Mac> Or of course just connect to a balanced input directly
[21:12] <ziltro> Mmm, I'm just curious.
[21:12] <ziltro> I might get something to convert, which I believe is basically a transformer.
[21:12] <ziltro> Or for ??30 you can get a USB stereo in/out sound card with balanced XLRs on.
[21:13] <Gadget-Mac> How close to the mixer are you planning on putting the pi ?
[21:13] <ReggieUK> yeah, at ??30 that sounds real pro :)
[21:13] <ziltro> I'm not /very/ professional yet. ;)
[21:13] <hetii> ziltro: do i undrestand you correctly you you only need that to have backup of your player/
[21:13] <hetii> ?
[21:13] <ziltro> hetii: Yeah. At the moment I have two laptops.
[21:14] <ziltro> Balanced audio is more of a would-be-nice.
[21:14] <ziltro> It isn't going to be far from the mixer usually I shouldn't think.
[21:14] <hetii> why you don`t simple mix audio from both board ?
[21:14] <ReggieUK> why do you feel you neeeed balanced?
[21:14] <ReggieUK> do you have noise issues?
[21:14] <ziltro> It is more want than need.
[21:14] <ziltro> Balanced is cool.
[21:14] <Gadget-Mac> balanced is really only useful on long microphone runs
[21:14] <ziltro> And means I get to use XLRs.
[21:15] <Gadget-Mac> What like this http://www.soundware.co.uk/sc/products/Hosa%20Pro%20Microphone%20Cable%20Dual%20Female%20XLR%20to%20Minijack%202Ft%20CYX402F%20
[21:15] <Walther> XLR is instant +3 charisma, no matter what
[21:15] <ziltro> hetii: The audio from each board would go into a different channel on teh mixer, so I only activate one channel at once.
[21:15] <ReggieUK> XLR's another want rather than need :)
[21:15] <Walther> Sure, they're actually *useful* for some things, but... yeah
[21:16] <Walther> even though wants != needs, sometimes wants > needs
[21:16] <ReggieUK> I just wonder whether the pi's analog audio is ever going to be good enough for essentially broadcast quality
[21:16] <ziltro> Also XLR cables are designed to survive being thrown about and stepped on a bit better than otehr connectors
[21:16] <hetii> yep :D
[21:17] <ziltro> Gadget-Mac: With pins instead of holes, but yeah that would get XLRs.

[21:50] <Walther> ziltro: indeed, I was just wondering whether it would be feasible to build a digital one using Pi
[21:51] <gordonDrogon> theremin used radio frequencies and capacitive effects of the hand waving... I suppose if you tried hard enough you could outputs radio wave via suitable buffer/amplifier and capture the varyance with a Pi, but I'm not sure how you'd do the capure... in the real one the signal was sort of self generating
[21:51] <gordonDrogon> there was a light sensitive one published in an electronics mag when I was a teenager... but I think that simply used an LDR to affect the frequency of a single oscillator.

[22:00] <ziltro> il marche.
[22:00] <lenz> composite video works too!
[22:00] <ziltro> Hmm rack-mounted oven?
[22:00] <gordonDrogon> I have some pastry to make...
[22:00] <Gadget-Mac> lenz: bit of a team effort :)
[22:02] <aaa801> HEA GUYS GUYS, put this in a bat and run it %0|%0

[22:03] <Hexxeh> you need to be running the latest wheezy/raspbian image
[22:03] <ziltro> I have no Pi yet :(
[22:03] <ziltro> Otherwise I'd test it.

[22:05] <Gadget-Mac> Like the theramin idea.
[22:05] <ziltro> Rack-mounted theremin.
[22:06] <Gadget-Mac> Whats the best way to get a 'tone' out of a pi then ?
[22:07] <ziltro> I've never found an easy way to generate a tone.
[22:07] <ziltro> You'd think it would be simple, then throw that tone at ALSA
[22:07] <Gadget-Mac> Python and SDL ?
[22:07] <ziltro> Oh maybe, I didn't try SDL.

[22:20] <dirty_d> Gadget-Mac, probably with alsa
[22:20] <dirty_d> or you could go straight for the PWM module
[22:21] <Gadget-Mac> dirty_d: Alsa would be goof
[22:21] <Gadget-Mac> good
[22:21] <dirty_d> PWM is more direct
[22:21] <dirty_d> simpler in some sense

[22:48] <Hexxeh> thanks :)
[22:48] <TeeCee> Too bad I can't test it yet.. :/
[22:49] <TeeCee> I guess that would still not make i.e. YouTube work faster?
[22:49] <TeeCee> Perhaps you could re-compile Flash? :p

[22:50] <TeeCee> YouTube supports HTML5...
[22:50] <Hexxeh> also it's probably not just a case of compiling, there'll be a bunch of armv7 specific routines in assembly in there i bet
[22:50] <Hexxeh> HTML5 what, video?
[22:51] <TeeCee> https://www.youtube.com/html5
[22:51] <Hexxeh> ok so yes, video
[22:51] <Hexxeh> libffmpegsumo isn't there
[22:51] <Hexxeh> but if it was, it'd run slow
[22:51] <Hexxeh> there's still no hardware acceleration, so you won't get video until there is
[22:51] <TeeCee> ok
[22:52] <friggle> Hexxeh: do you get to work on this as part of your internship?
[22:52] <Hexxeh> sadly not

[23:16] <Hexxeh> good to hear :)
[23:16] <gordonDrogon> much much better than midori!
[23:16] <Hexxeh> hopefully some people versed in the art of GLESv2 will hop on board and make it even better
[23:16] <gordonDrogon> it renders my projects site correctly - if a shade slow as it's all https, but news.bbc.co.uk was very usable.

[23:18] <Netham45> How does the RPI pass power through to the USB? Ex, if I hook up a 2A power supply to it will that be available to the USB ports?
[23:18] <gordonDrogon> gah! adverts!
[23:18] <gordonDrogon> Netham45, no...
[23:18] <gordonDrogon> Netham45, there is a 700mA fuse on the inlet, then further 140mA fuses on each usb port.

[23:19] <gordonDrogon> some people have soldered wires directly from the inlet to the usb ports - google and I'm sure you'll find pictures...
[23:19] <Netham45> That's what I was thinking of doing.
[23:20] <gordonDrogon> add a big capacitor too AIUI to help stop spikes from plugging in power hungry devices.
[23:21] <Netham45> 140 on each port might be enough to power what I want, I'm not sure. Just a small Keyboard/mouse combo, a GPS, and a touchscreen.
[23:21] <lenz> what about temperature sensors on PI? lm_sensors does not work
[23:21] <lenz> are there some pakages , for cpu temperature monitoring?
[23:22] <gordonDrogon> there are no sensors to monitor..
[23:22] <gordonDrogon> (that I'm aware of)
[23:22] <lenz> bad :\
[23:22] <gordonDrogon> I'd not be concerned - it's designed to run up to about 70C.
[23:22] <lenz> its too hot
[23:22] <gordonDrogon> I doubt it.
[23:23] <lenz> I living in Georgia
[23:23] <gordonDrogon> is it crashing?
[23:23] <Netham45> Can you put your finger on it without your skin burning and sticking to the CPU? If so, it's not too hot.
[23:23] <gordonDrogon> :)
[23:23] <lenz> we have +30 whole day
[23:23] <markllama> no smoke? you're fine.
[23:23] <gordonDrogon> it's fine.
[23:23] <lenz> no, PI does not crashing
[23:24] <gordonDrogon> no crash, then no wry.
[23:24] <Netham45> hmm, I didn't think of heat.
[23:24] <lenz> but, I had to wait more than 4 months )))))

[23:27] <lupinedk> Netham those ideapads get fairly hot by themselves, so if it can make it i think a rpi would have no problem with it
[23:27] <Netham45> yea

[23:28] <lupinedk> do a switch?
[23:29] <lupinedk> anyway you run a inverter to the psu on the ideapad?
[23:29] <lupinedk> sounds like a rubbish solution, if so
[23:29] <Netham45> No, I have a 12v->18v cigarette lighter adaptor
[23:29] <Netham45> that I just put in my dash
[23:29] <lupinedk> heh :)
[23:29] <Netham45> I've got a few USB phone chargers that claim to put out 2A
