[0:04] <ReggieUK> can I remind you all of the channel rule about 'no foul language'
[0:04] <Stoob> You can
[0:05] <Stoob> but they probably won't understand such soft language
[0:05] <chris_99> anyone used an SSR with a RPi
[0:05] <SwK> does that mean no talking about birds?

[0:07] <ziltro> No, that's fowl language.
[0:07] <Berry_HK> SSR?
[0:08] <ziltro> So it is okay to talk about cocks and hens, as they are fowl and not foul. :)
[0:08] <mm0zct> it's still dreadfully off topic unless you are controlling chicken feed with a raspberry pi
[0:08] * Spiffy (~Spiffy@unaffiliated/spiffy) has joined #raspberrypi

[0:08] <webclimber> good afternoon??? Anyone has a good pointer to how to build a raspberry pi toolchain on mac osx ? I am looking to compile on the mac and deploy on the rpi
[0:08] <mm0zct> chris_99: what is an SSR?
[0:08] <chris_99> Solid State Relay
[0:08] <mm0zct> ah
[0:09] <ziltro> That would be a good project.
[0:09] * Sakyl (~Sakyl@95-91-161-94-dynip.superkabel.de) Quit (Quit: Leaving.)
[0:09] <mm0zct> no I have not used one, just logic buffers so far
[0:09] <chris_99> what for mm0zct?
[0:10] <mm0zct> bitbanging JTAG to an FPGA board that only does 2.5V logic, and isn't 3.3v safe
[0:10] <ziltro> There's 2.5v now as well?
[0:10] <SwK> you could probably use a SSR with the RP off the gpio, but you'd probably want some sort of driver in there to isolate it
[0:11] * prpplague (~danders@ Quit (Quit: Leaving)

[0:11] * PiBot sets mode +v parti
[0:11] <chris_99> the SSR should have an opto-isolator in i believe
[0:11] <mm0zct> http://mm0zct.tumblr.com/ is where I'm slowly writing it up, I gotthe final adapter soldered together on saturday
[0:11] <ziltro> Are SSRs capable of high current?
[0:11] <ziltro> Or are they still stupid expensive?
[0:11] * Jungle-Boogie (~Jungle-Bo@unaffiliated/jungle-boogie) has joined #raspberrypi

[0:12] * parti (~pi@c-2ec2db87-74736162.cust.telenor.se) has left #raspberrypi
[0:12] <chris_99> and they can do 80A
[0:12] <ziltro> Ooh, and can they switch AC and DC?
[0:12] <ziltro> Wow.
[0:12] <ziltro> I was thinking 10 A.
[0:12] <chris_99> i need a 50A one for a heater element
[0:12] <Jungle-Boogie> Anyone know of a bluetooth dongle that can be purchased in the US that works with the pi?
[0:12] <PigFlu> >50 A
[0:12] <ziltro> At 230 V?
[0:12] <PigFlu> dude, do you even know how much that is
[0:12] <chris_99> yes
[0:13] <ziltro> 50 A is half a house.
[0:13] <SwK> 50A @ 230 is most of a house lol
[0:13] <chris_99> was that to me PigFlu
[0:13] <PigFlu> yes
[0:13] <SwK> thats like 10KW
[0:13] * Tenchworks (Tenchworks@76-231-26-63.lightspeed.wlfrct.sbcglobal.net) has joined #raspberrypi

[0:13] <ziltro> Well, mose houses I've seen have a 100 A fuse.
[0:13] <chris_99> yes, it's a 7KW heater
[0:13] <ziltro> Not that you'd want to run it at that level.
[0:13] <ziltro> I've used around 80 A of lighting on stage and you don't need any other heating.

[0:14] <ziltro> In USA.
[0:14] <chris_99> it's going to be on it's own ring main Stoob
[0:14] <Stoob> and yeah lighting is absurd
[0:14] <ziltro> 16 or 20 A in most of the ret of the world I believe.
[0:14] <Stoob> gosh you guys and your worldliness
[0:14] <chris_99> ring mains is ~30A in UK
[0:14] <chris_99> normally
[0:14] <ziltro> Or 32 A rings in the UK because it is mental here.
[0:14] <Stoob> @ 230V?
[0:14] <ziltro> UK is all 230 V.
[0:14] <mm0zct> I have to remember that americans run at 110v, and mentally halve the current in my head for power estiamtes
[0:14] <Stoob> jesus christ
[0:15] <plugwash> officially it's 230, practically it tends to be somewherebetween 240 and 250
[0:15] <ziltro> USA has both 115 and 230 V in one, in most houses. ;)
[0:15] <SwK> you guys gotta keep in mind that 32A @ 230 is like a 65A 115 in the US
[0:15] <ziltro> It is complicated.
[0:15] <plugwash> at least that is my experience in the UK
[0:15] <mm0zct> it use to be 240 in the uk, we settled on 230 when we standardised with europe iirc
[0:15] <ziltro> plugwash: It is, I believe, both 240 V ?? 6% and 230 V ?? 10%
[0:16] <Jungle-Boogie> anyone have experience with bluetooth with the pi?
[0:16] <ziltro> The latter being the current EU standard, and includes the whole range of the former.

[0:16] * PiBot sets mode +v P4R4N01D
[0:16] <piksel> Jungle-Boogie, aye
[0:16] <Stoob> I believe US standard is 120 isn't it?
[0:16] <Stoob> 120 NOMINAL
[0:16] * jprvita is now known as jprvita|afk
[0:16] <plugwash> mm0zct, it still is they just pretend it's 230 to keep the eurocrats happy
[0:16] <ziltro> The tollerence in voltage in the EU was made wide enough to include the UK as-is, so nothing changed here.
[0:16] <SwK> 110 to 120
[0:16] <SwK> depends on where you are lol
[0:17] <ziltro> New installations might actually aim for 230 V.
[0:17] <plugwash> we do have fused plugs in the UK though so while our socket circuits are very high rated the flexes are still well protected
[0:17] <ziltro> But the USA and Canada and possibly most 115 V countries have 230 V as well, with three wires coming into the house.
[0:17] <Jungle-Boogie> piksel, i'm looking for a bt dongle but I can't seem to find any to buy on amazon. what BT are you using?
[0:18] <SwK> Stoob: US residential power is actually 2 - 110v phases for 220v input into the house
[0:18] <ziltro> I actually installed a couple of new circuits in the UK for sockets, and I used 20 A radials because I'm cool. ;)
[0:18] <SwK> Stoob: then in most recepts you only get 1 phase connected to a common...
[0:18] <ziltro> I've done some wiring in the USA, including a 230 V pool pump.
[0:19] <ziltro> Any large household items in the USA are likely to use 230 V, plus 115 V for a light or controls.
[0:19] <SwK> most large appliances like Electric Dryers, Pool Pumps, electric cooktops HVAC units are fed off the 220
[0:19] <ziltro> So if there ever were a worldwide standard voltage it would be 230 V or thereabouts.
[0:19] <Stoob> SwK: officially it's 120
[0:20] <Stoob> though yes usually it's broken down from multiphase
[0:20] <SwK> Stoob: officially and what you actually get are 2 different things lol
[0:20] <SwK> the US electric grid is a massive mess
[0:20] <Stoob> I've checked quite a few places and almost every time I get 120volts, with a few outliers at like 117 or so
[0:20] <SwK> its amazing we havent had more regional blackouts then we have
[0:21] <ziltro> I have wondered if it would be possible to make the high-voltage distribution all DC.
[0:21] <Stoob> it wouldn't
[0:21] <plugwash> I don't think the european grid is that much better
[0:21] <piksel> Jungle-Boogie, the case is long gone, but on my stock-debian it showed what chip it used. for some reason its only a "generic bt device" on raspbian.
[0:21] <ziltro> Modern electronics mean it could be done, I believe. There are high voltage DC links.
[0:21] <SwK> ziltro: you realize "High Voltage DC" is anything over like 12v...
[0:21] <ziltro> 500 kV 'twixt UK and France for example.
[0:21] <Stoob> yeahhh, but for long distance links it just ends up being nearly impossible
[0:21] <SwK> ziltro: even messed with -48vdc in a datacenter?
[0:22] <ziltro> SwK: High is comparative... :)
[0:22] <plugwash> in particular the european grid often has very weak interconnections between countries, I remember a few years back italy dropped off the european grid and had massive blackouts
[0:22] <Jungle-Boogie> piksel, but you're able to use BT with it?
[0:22] <plugwash> and another incident where western europe became split from eastern europe
[0:22] <ziltro> Is there any reason long distance high (eg. 500 kV) voltage DC wouldn't work?
[0:22] <SwK> ziltro: by definition... high voltage DC is defined as anything over like 12VDC... where as the definition for high voltage AC is a much higher voltage
[0:23] <plugwash> SwK, that is certainly not the case in the UK
[0:23] <Stoob> ziltro: well, it would work fine, it'd just be much more costly than ac
[0:23] <plugwash> dunno about where you live
[0:23] <plugwash> "low voltage" here is defined as up to 1000V AC or up to 1500V DC IIRC
[0:23] <Stoob> only reason anyone does DC power transfer is when AC is difficult (mismatched frequencies etc)
[0:23] <ziltro> Stoob: Why is that? I thougth switched-mode converters would be more effecient?
[0:24] <SwK> switch mode converters are very lossy
[0:24] <piksel> Jungle-Boogie, yeah. got t connecting to both my pc and my bt gps
[0:24] <ziltro> But valves use 90 V HT... :)
[0:24] <ziltro> Or, some do. That's a common voltage.
[0:24] <plugwash> ziltro, my understanding is that while small switchers are more efficient an economical than small line frequency transformers the opposite is true at large power levels
[0:24] <Jungle-Boogie> piksel, did you ever try out bluelog? http://www.digifail.com/software/bluelog.shtml
[0:24] * webclimber (~Adium@ has left #raspberrypi
[0:25] <ziltro> Ah okay.
[0:25] <Stoob> ziltro: it's possible that you could get em more efficient, I believe the initial outlay is what kills you, though I honestly havent seen any prices
[0:26] <ziltro> I was also wondering how high DC voltage could go
[0:26] <ziltro> I believe AC has issues with coronal discharge which limits the maximum, not sure if that applies to DC.
[0:28] <piksel> Jungle-Boogie, nope, just bluez bluez-tools (?) and tried some graphical frontend
[0:28] <Stoob> it does, but since DC doesn't have the peaks above/below RMS I think you might be able to go higher
[0:28] <ziltro> Ah, yes of course.
[0:29] <ziltro> so 858kV
[0:29] <ziltro> assuming 500kV is RMS
[0:29] <piksel> (sorry for the slow responses, apt-getting stole all the cpu cycles (im writing from my pi))
[0:30] <Stoob> lol
[0:31] <Jungle-Boogie> piksel, thanks for the info. I think I may try this out but i can't seem to find any specs on it: https://www.dealextreme.com/p/super-mini-bluetooth-2-0-adapter-dongle-vista-compatible-16229?r=58964868
[0:31] <ziltro> Vista Compatible! :)
[0:31] <Stoob> lol
[0:32] <Stoob> love those tiny usb devices
[0:32] <Jungle-Boogie> yeah, not helpful at all!
[0:32] <piksel> Jungle-Boogie, the cambridge silicon chips is the ones that works iirc, afraid to open that link on the pi :D
[0:32] <Stoob> I cant wait to see ones that literally do not stick out of the slot at all
[0:32] <ziltro> Then how would you remove them?
[0:32] <piksel> magnet?
[0:32] <Stoob> loop
[0:33] <ziltro> ???Note: you must install the software on the included CD. This dongle cannot use the native Windows bluetooth driver stack.???
[0:33] <ziltro> Sounds aweful. :)
[0:34] <ziltro> But if there's a Linux driver it'll be fine.
[0:34] <piksel> hm, couldbe bs tho. ive yet to find a bt adapter that did not work with winbt, although not all functionality

[4:17] * ReggieUK (~ReggieUK@5aca5630.bb.sky.com) has joined #raspberrypi

[4:50] <plugwash> but how fast you can actually run them on a Pi before signal integrity breaks down I don't think anyone knows
[4:50] <NullMoogleCable> so how fast can you communicate to other pi boards with spi?
[4:51] <plugwash> I don't think anyone knows
[4:51] <NullMoogleCable> sounds like a challange!
[4:52] <techsurvivor> do you have two RPi's ?
[4:52] <plugwash> The problem is for high speed stuff careful routing and integrity control is required
[4:52] <plugwash> and I very much doubt that was done for the GPIO pins on the Pi
[4:52] <plugwash> so the question is "how fast can you go before it breaks down due to signal integrity"
[4:53] <plugwash> also i'm not sure how deep the FIFOs are
[4:53] <plugwash> which may also limit the data rate you can sustain
[4:53] <techsurvivor> it depends on distance, pcb board materials etc, I'd be surprised if you got much higher than 10-20MHz clock with boards very near each other

[4:54] <NullMoogleCable> but with spi or i2c + 6-8 io as a databus
[4:55] <techsurvivor> that's not spi or i2c, that's a parallel bus :)
[4:55] <NullMoogleCable> exactly
[4:56] <techsurvivor> i thought we were talkign about spi :) is all I guess.
[4:56] <plugwash> the trouble with a paralell bus is I don't think you will have any hardware help
[4:57] <plugwash> so you will be limited by how fast you can software bit-bang stuff
[4:57] <plugwash> and you will basically have to dedicate the CPUs at both ends to the bit-banging during the transfer
[4:58] <techsurvivor> yep, no dedicated hardware. that will gobble up cpu quickly
[4:58] <NullMoogleCable> hmmm usb?
[4:58] <techsurvivor> and unless you have some "Hey slow down lines" you can quickly have buffer overruns :)
[4:58] <plugwash> USB might be reasonable in future if someone can figure out how to put the port on a Pi in device mode
[4:59] <plugwash> and the Pi model A actually becomes available (the B has that hub with ethernet in the way)
[4:59] <techsurvivor> that would be cool
[4:59] <techsurvivor> just use ethernet lol

[5:03] <techsurvivor> would it compile quicker across an nfs mount?
[5:03] <plugwash> I dread to think how long it would take on a Pi
[5:04] <techsurvivor> does the qemu environment work better for that ? I've only done the cross compiler for the kernel
[5:05] <plugwash> IIRC for building chromium qemu-user on a fast multicore box is faster than native building on an IMX board

[7:22] <GriffenJBS> the mouse is USB 0a81:0101, I'm googling to that, maybe it's that brand/design
[7:22] <xiambax> Do you have anything else plugged in? Its weird it would moan about mtp like that
[7:24] <GriffenJBS> the usb has a few items, wifi/hub on the pu, keyboard/mouse on the hub

[7:54] <GriffenJBS> the drivers for GPGPU don't currently exist
[7:54] <squiggles> how disappointing
[7:55] <GriffenJBS> .. ? for a web browser? that will improve with the system support (mostly kernel)
[7:55] <squiggles> yes
[7:56] <GriffenJBS> we browsers don't really use GPGPU, but the 2d/3d accel will help, most of it is currently underused
[7:56] <squiggles> i know
[7:57] <squiggles> the gpu is significantly more powerful than the cpu
[7:58] <squiggles> id need a kludge to reallocate computing power for other tasks

[9:07] <haitekabi> I'm trying to get bluetooth working for my keyboard/trackpad

[9:08] <reider59> I have a Rii mini keyboard/trackpad and just plugged the BT adaptor straight into the Pi USB Port, it worked instantly
[9:09] <reider59> Theres a script to install the Edimax 7811Un, if that`s the same one.
[9:10] <NemesisD> Wendo: wifi dongle
[9:10] <Wendo> The biggest problem I had was I was using a powered usb hub, but it was still drawing from the pi and I couldn't get the wireless dongle working on it
[9:10] <Wendo> as soon as I plugged it direclty into the pi it started working
[9:10] <NemesisD> everyone is saying the edimax doesn't need a powered hub

[9:11] <Wendo> I've fixed my hub and now it works on that too, but no, the edimax doesn't need a hub... I had the same fault as you though until I plugged it directly in, driver loaded but couldn't get the light to come on

[9:14] <reider59> one or two have added it to Arch
[9:14] * a7x (~lost@unaffiliated/raffy) has joined #raspberrypi
[9:14] * PiBot sets mode +v a7x
[9:14] <NemesisD> Wendo: yep. added blacklist rtl8192cu to /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf, i see the only module to show up is 8192cu as expected
[9:15] <reider59> It worked in Debian Squeeze, Wheezy and Raspbian but I think the Arch users had to modify it a little
[9:15] <Wendo> and thats loaded ok obviously.. what do you see from dmesg when you insert the dongle?
[9:16] <NemesisD> Wendo: tailing /var/log/dmesg.log, oddly no activity when i unplug/replug
[9:17] <NemesisD> i wonder if i shuld be running this off the wall socket instead of my laptop for best results
[9:17] <Wendo> but the dongle works on another machine ok?
[9:17] <NemesisD> Wendo: haven't tried. sec
[9:17] <Wendo> yeah.. probably :) Unless your laptpo has high power ports you're probably asking too much of it, most top out at 500mA
[9:18] <NemesisD> i know that it shows up under lsusb
[9:18] <Wendo> yeah but if it can't get enough grunt to fully power up it'll cause problems
[9:19] <Wendo> Although I would have expected it in dmesg too if it was in lsusb, still better to find something that can give the pi at least 700mA, 1A is better still
[9:20] <NemesisD> ok now its plugged in from my phone charger off the wall outlet

[9:24] <NemesisD> is there a firmware component to this equation that im missing?
[9:25] <Wendo> Yup... lemme track down the URL for them
[9:26] <Wendo> this shoudl be the firmware http://www.electrictea.co.uk/rpi/8192cu.tar.gz

[9:26] * larsemil (~iPlayer@irc.diktatur.nu) Quit (Ping timeout: 248 seconds)
[9:27] <NemesisD> Wendo: i thought that was the driver. i compiled 8192cu.ko from source

[9:41] <NemesisD> this shows wlan0 at the end but i don't see wlan0 in ifconfig or wicd
[9:42] <NemesisD> mighta been a red herring. i got excited
[9:43] <buZz> ifconfig wlan0
[9:43] <buZz> if wlan0 is not up you will not see it in the output by default
[9:44] <Wendo> according to the wiki you should have a /etc/network.d/mynetwork (or something similar) file to specify the options for each interface

[9:49] <NemesisD> arch kernels update all the damn time
[9:49] <NemesisD> which actually is annoying because it overwrites my memory divider
[9:49] <Wendo> since the kernel's aren't yet being compiled with the wireless drivers, we have to go through at least some of this each time
[9:50] <Wendo> still worth it for me to only have to run a single wire to my pi though
[9:50] <buZz> there are a lot inside already
[9:50] <NemesisD> yeah im thinking i will tuck this behind my boxee box, might update it less frequently
[9:51] <Wendo> just not this one seemingly :).. heres hoping that changes though, although I guess it could be because there is the firmware side too
[9:51] <buZz> raspbian had some wireless firmwarez aswell
[9:51] <buZz> just not all
[9:51] <buZz> i tried 4 diff wireless usb gizmos
[9:51] <buZz> 1 didnt work until 3.2, 1 worked out of the box, and 2 needed moar firmwarez

[10:10] <rm> RAM is too small
[10:10] <buZz> never surrender
[10:10] <Tachyon`> ram is fine
[10:10] <buZz> you hardly need over 1MB ram to play a video
[10:10] <buZz> add 10MB for caching
[10:10] <rm> any modern android won't work, old android will run at most one app and even that slowly
[10:10] <buZz> and 110MB for OS
[10:11] <buZz> rm: even old androids had multitasking
[10:11] <buZz> its just not that obvious
[10:11] <Tachyon`> well, yeah
[10:11] <xarragon> Why woudl you want android when you can have real linux? :-)
[10:11] <Tachyon`> it's a linux kernel

[10:12] <Tachyon`> my first linux machine had 5MB RAM

[10:12] <Tachyon`> but still, you could run it perfectly well in 8 at the time, even with X
[10:13] <Tachyon`> but it's got bloated to shit over th eyears
[10:13] <Tachyon`> so now you need at least 256 to do anything useful in X, ideally 512
[10:13] <rm> Android is a stupid bloated OS that really has no purpose on the Pi
[10:13] <rm> and very limited
[10:13] <Tachyon`> android is a phone OS and I'm not sure why poeple keep trying to run it on things that aren't phones
[10:13] <rm> both from what you can do, and even in its UI
[10:14] <Tachyon`> for a phone OS it does very well
[10:14] <Tachyon`> as a tablet/laptop OS it's bloody useless
[10:15] <xarragon> Havn't you heard? It is not about how good something really is, because that implies it has a real purpose and measurable performance in performing that task; it's about the "hawtness" of the solution nowadays!

[10:50] <Crenn-NAS> Wendo: http://pastebin.com/dxgMb1L4
[10:50] <Wendo> just pulled the hub apart and unsoldered the wire and threw some heatshrink on it

[10:54] <netman87> heh not looking good those dmesg rows
[10:54] <piksel> i bought this awesome hub that delivered up to 1,3A from one of the ports (the "charge" port). turns out this was only until a master connected to it, then it drew power from there, so i got myself a auto-rebooting pi! awesome.
[10:54] <Wendo> crenn, possibly power issue, whats powering the pi and whats it's specs?
[10:54] <Crenn-NAS> Good Morning gordon, ready for the experiment?
[10:55] <reider59> I ordered an LCD Shield for the Arduino, with about 6 buttons on. 312 and free postage
[10:55] <gordonDrogon> the experiment???
[10:55] <Wendo> xarragon, ekk, and intel USB is about the best you'll find
[10:55] <xarragon> Wendo: Same thing happened with a Huawei 3G dongle and USB cameras, all which works flawlessly on my laptop..

[10:56] <Crenn-NAS> gordonDrogon: Half-Life
[10:56] <xarragon> Wendo: Yeah, I know.. But if you read the P55 PCH errata there are a ton of unfixed silicon bugs. Remember the iphone/windows7 sync issue? P55 chipset.

[10:56] <Crenn-NAS> The game
[10:56] <Dyskette> gordonDrogon, it's a reference to the game Half-Life.
[10:56] <xarragon> Wendo: I got a USB 3.0 port/hub on the smae mobo, works flawlessly.
[10:56] <gordonDrogon> Oh. Game. Yes. That came out years ago. Is it still going?
[10:56] <gordonDrogon> I've never played it.
[10:56] <Dyskette> The franchise is. Sort of.
[10:57] <gordonDrogon> Doom2 is about my limit of those sorts of games.
[10:57] <Dyskette> Doom2 was fantastic.

[11:11] <gordonDrogon> 9 Power_On_Hours 0x0032 024 024 000 Old_age Always - 55885
[11:11] <agumonkey> I recently fired up an old ibm 14gb , runs fine. didn't expect that at all u_u;
[11:11] <gordonDrogon> that's over 6 years.
[11:12] <Dyskette> I've still got my windows install on an old 10GB IBM drive.
[11:12] <gordonDrogon> I axed a few dozen old IDE dirves a few months ago during a clear out - my original, very first 280MB IDE drive still worked, but unlike the older machines I have (apple II/BBC Micro) I really didn't feel any sort of attachment to it.
[11:12] <xarragon> agumonkey: Old, low-density disks are pretty damn sturdy. Once you get into 100 gig range or so their life span dropped dramatically for me.
[11:12] <Dyskette> Ticking along just fine.
[11:12] <agumonkey> xarragon: is that when they shifted to vertical ?
[11:12] <agumonkey> *perpendicular*
[11:12] <Wendo> it's only drives that have been continuously running you need to worry about agumonkey, the bearings tend to sieze up as soon as they stop after running that long
[11:13] <agumonkey> Wendo: I assumed the same could happen when not running for years
[11:14] <xarragon> agumonkey: I don't know.. There are so many factors, the first few 100-gigers ran very hot too..
[11:14] <Wendo> much less so seemingly
[11:14] <agumonkey> my old 2..3gb seagates are dead though, too bad, there's some custom doom 2 levels in there hiding
[11:14] <xarragon> agumonkey: The ones I had at least.. And after that I had a jiffy power supply at one point.
[11:15] <Wendo> at least I've never had long off drives do that, plenty of ones that had been running 24/7 for a long time... backups are a wonderful thing in those cases, or replacing the server before it gets to that point
[11:15] <Dyskette> Hitatchi were perfectly capable of building stupidly failure-prone hdds at the sub-30GB level, thinking back.
[11:15] <agumonkey> btw what do you use for long term backup ?
[11:15] <agumonkey> tapes ?
[11:16] <gordonDrogon> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stiction#Hard_disk_drives
[11:16] <Wendo> yep, LTO. God awful expensive but at least you know if you treat them right there is a very good chance you'll be able to read them when you need too
[11:16] <Crenn-NAS> Tachyon`: Not currently, apart from the SD card
[11:17] <gordonDrogon> I moved away from tapes some years back... now a combiantion on on-site and off-site disk drives.
[11:17] <Crenn-NAS> May have found the problem, the cable might have been a little loose or something
[11:18] <Crenn-NAS> Making sure it works with windows now before I try again
[11:18] <agumonkey> never had a chance to start a hard drive by hand , ah youth
[11:18] <reider59> Just had a good session in BF3 for a change
[11:18] <gordonDrogon> Heh... Onceupon a time a DEC engineer told me that running Unix on the PDP11 we had was the best diagnostic they had for the hardware...
[11:19] <gordonDrogon> agumonkey, I had one server with a drive that needed a flick, or tap to get it going some 20 years ago though.
[11:19] <reider59> The other side thought it a good idea to fly over our base and 1 parachute out then rob our planes and helicopters. I waited while they got in and shot the aircraft, got 12 kills lol

[12:10] <gordonDrogon> Crenn-NAS, I've no idea - I avoid udev wherever possible.
[12:11] <gordonDrogon> Crenn-NAS, although I understand it's the way to automate things like that - you can get it to look for a specific serial number for example and mount it in a particular place, etc.
[12:11] * kvarley (~kevin@unaffiliated/kvarley) Quit (Quit: Leaving.)
[12:11] <Weaselweb> root mounting is done before any userspace application (e.g. udev) is executed
[12:13] <Crenn-NAS> Weaselweb: I just remember modifying something with debian squeeze to change mount positions etc and to make swap as a file
[12:13] <agumonkey> Crenn-NAS: what distro are you using ? archarm ?
[12:15] <Weaselweb> Crenn-NAS: mount positions are done in /etc/fstab, I would recommend using swap on a separate spaw partition (though a swap file also works, but has the FS overhead)
[12:16] <Crenn-NAS> agumonkey: Debian Wheezy beta
[12:16] <Crenn-NAS> Weaselweb: At ok
[12:16] <Crenn-NAS> Would the same work for a USB device?
[12:16] <Crenn-NAS> And what would happen if that device isn't available?
[12:16] <Weaselweb> Crenn-NAS: nevertheless the kernel needs to know your root partition at first on its command line (usually given from boot loader)

[12:17] <Weaselweb> mounting devices differes slightly between distributions. usually /etc/fstab is parsed once during boot up

[15:16] <drazyl> I don't see them coming down much faster than HD prices in that graph, pretty much the same
[15:17] <drogon> I think it seems silly to be at all concerend about the write cycles on an SD card that costs under a fiver.
[15:17] <rikkus> They've come down fast enough - not best speed/money for bulk storage but otherwise perfect

[15:18] <rikkus> I mean, I don't balk at putting an SSD as the boot drive in anything, so they're cheap enough now.
[15:18] <drogon> rikkus, sure - but they're now looking attractive for servers where you need more storage - year ago I'd have said to wait for spinny prices to fall, really not sure now ...
[15:18] <rikkus> yep
[15:18] <Will|> if you're using ssd in mass storage you want some kind of multi-tiered storage management imo
[15:19] <Will|> or someone with a fat wallet financing you ;)
[15:19] <rikkus> Will|: Cheap enough for me
[15:19] <Will|> Well, it's ok for some :P

[16:05] <drogon> just 5 volts.

[16:06] <GriffenJBS> ukscone there is a name I recognize
[16:06] <GriffenJBS> USB specs for 5V +- 5% @ 500mA
[16:07] * `z is now known as Assp3rd
[16:07] <GriffenJBS> the rails of an ATX PS don't seem to fit in that range
[16:08] <ziltro> An ATX PSU will easily power an RPi, probably on the "always on" 5V supply, surely?
[16:08] <GriffenJBS> the ATX specs seem to say the same for the +5V rail +-5%, but the readings I'm getting are out of spec
[16:08] <ziltro> Or does the PSU say it goes higher than 5%?
[16:08] <ziltro> Is there any load on the PSU?
[16:09] <ziltro> I wouldn't be supprised if regular PC USB ports are powered almost straight off of the 5 V output of an ATX supply. Probably with a fuse or similar.
[16:10] <Tobias|> Not true ziltro
[16:10] <Tobias|> Mobos take 12v
[16:10] <Tobias|> And that's what handles your USB ports
[16:10] <ziltro> And 5 V and 3.3 V...
[16:10] <Tobias|> ah
[16:11] <GriffenJBS> Tobias|: ..? an ATX PS has 3.3V, 5V and 12V rails
[16:11] <ziltro> And -5 and -12 IIRC, but they are used less these days.
[16:12] <nid0> current atx no longer carries -5
[16:12] <GriffenJBS> ziltro: I agree on the USB using the 5V rail, and at 150W for a small one the 5V rail should have PLENTY of current for a pi

[16:26] <drazyl> usb 2 specifies max 500ma from a port, so if that maps to 1a available it means two fully powered ports
[16:26] <drazyl> most devices use less
[16:27] <drazyl> but that's probably why a hub is not recommended

[16:33] <drogon> what you need is a charger... or a cheap hub that does not obey the power negotiations.
[16:33] <drogon> if it obeys the power negotiations, then it will stall at 100mA and shouldn't provide more without the proper handshake - which the Pi won't do.
[16:34] <drogon> My not that cheap (?12) 4-port hub with 2A PSU doesn't do the handshake, so powers the Pi OK. Actually powes 2 Pi's OK.

[16:58] <drogon> TheBrayn, One or 2 have compiled a gentoo for the Pi. Takes a week or 2.
[16:58] <nizeguy> but it's normal then to the board to stay on red without displaying anything on the hdmi connected screen
[16:58] <drogon> nizeguy, yes.
[16:58] <TheBrayn> drogon: I don't plan to compile anything on the pi
[16:58] <nizeguy> drogon: nice !

[16:59] <mikma> nizeguy: 17:54 <+mikma> well on me red led is power led so yeah, it's on if you are wondering
[16:59] <drogon> nizeguy, the Pi has just the tiniest bootloader built into it. just enough to read one file off the SD card.
[16:59] <TheBrayn> distcc!
[16:59] <nizeguy> okye !
[16:59] <nizeguy> hopes up again !
[16:59] <nizeguy> gonna dd it again later and retry
[16:59] <drogon> nizeguy, just make sure you dd to the /dev/sdb - that's the whole device. sdb1 is a partition and that's not what you need.
[17:00] <nizeguy> okye
[17:00] <drogon> nizeguy, also, add bs=1M to the command line - makes it go a bit faster - maybe.

[17:20] <techsurvivor> they make good thin clients ;)
[17:20] <Martin`> techsurvivor: ok, but is is strange because i do not recieve an ip anymore, lets check it is works now :)
[17:20] <Gabtendo> I'll SSH into my server and have a persistent IRC instance running

[17:25] <techsurvivor> mikma thanks for that :) . I saved it off. I forgot how I got mine working lolz
[17:25] <techsurvivor> my biggest issue was just figuring out how to get the driver working and then I found someone's nice install script that did it all for me. I was giong to dig into it and see exactly what he did, but I think you already did that :)

[17:52] * markllama wants to set his on top of a 1400AH UPS :-)
[17:52] <Weaselweb> 700mA and 5V is 3,5W, so any PC PSU is overkill
[17:52] <ziltro> If it would power it for 48 hours you should be okay.
[17:53] <ziltro> ie. most power cuts won't last longer than 48 hours I shouldn't think, so you won't need to reset the clock.
[17:53] <ziltro> Does the time stay correct over a reboot? I suspect not.

[18:49] <ziltro> Woo, Wikipedia on paper
[18:49] <ziltro> Well, card.
[18:49] <ziltro> Actually a papertape/punch card reader might be a fun project
[18:50] <prpplague> those are always fun
[18:50] <piksel> indeed

[18:53] * IT_Sean sneakily randomizes all of ziltro's punchcards
[18:53] <piksel> what about some core memory?
[18:53] <ziltro> I mean it might be a nice project for someone into hardware. Simple-ish.
[18:53] <ziltro> Stepper motor and LEDs and light sensors, presumably.
[18:53] <techsurvivor> ziltro probably has a card sorter just in case they get out of order :D
[18:53] <ziltro> I don't own any punch cards!

[18:54] <ziltro> But my dad does.
[18:54] <IT_Sean> whoops...
[18:54] <IT_Sean> I guess i randomized ziltro's dad's punchcards.
[18:54] <IT_Sean> sorry 'bout that.
[18:54] <techsurvivor> an old programmer told me an intern messed up his cards and he gave him a hard time in jest (intern didn't know about card sorters) and scared him to death lolz
[18:54] <IT_Sean> I hope they weren't important.

[20:19] <waynix> It could be the fuse, but the pins on the usb port have power so i dont think this is the issue
[20:19] <ziltro> Try swapping SD cards and power supplies with another working RPi?
[20:19] <Qtr> so how much voltage can you give out?
[20:20] <waynix> 5V
[20:20] <ziltro> An RPi is cheaper then a mainframe, perhaps that's why people want to emulate one?
[20:20] <Qtr> what if you need more?
[20:20] <Qtr> how much electronics can you put?
[20:20] <plugwash> ok at least the hercules build system is sane and respect the CC environment variable

[21:33] <sirspazzolot> oh wheezy is post-squeeze? I thought it was old
[21:34] <stefanBA> wheezy = squeeze + 1
[21:34] <millette> squeeze (stable) is debian's current version wheezy (testing) is the upcoming one
[21:34] <GabrialDestruir> Time to build my second case

[21:34] <Timmmaaaayyy> oooooh, so it's just the "release"
[21:34] <Timmmaaaayyy> Sweet!!! thanks so much

[21:35] <GabrialDestruir> Yea....
[21:35] <jmg123> @GabrialDestruir definitely time to overvolt one now :-)
[21:35] <millette> quite a lot, actually :-) Since stable means stable: same software version on squeeze since its release 1-2 years ago (?)
[21:35] <GabrialDestruir> I'll wait until I have a third >.>
[21:35] <GabrialDestruir> Ones original stock.
[21:36] <reider59> Debian Squeeze was the recommended Distro for the RPi. along came Wheezy, a faster Distro but classed as a Beta. then Raspbian based on Wheezy was put together and this is the new recommended Distro for the RPi
[21:36] <jmg123> then you'll be like me
[21:36] <GabrialDestruir> Ones non original stock, so now I need a third I can break xD

[21:41] <corewillem> if i try a xbmc version it boot's but i get after the bootplash a black screen
[21:41] <jmg123> there are some prebuilt 4gb sd card images in the thread as wel
[21:41] <corewillem> i have my pi now on that screen for a hour
[21:41] <GabrialDestruir> The latest rpi build for openelec looks to be July 4 unless they've chanced where they're uploading it now
[21:41] <jmg123> @corewillem what OS are you running?
[21:42] <corewillem> ubuntu 12.10
[21:42] <GabrialDestruir> Ubuntu 12.10 for Rpi!
[21:42] <GabrialDestruir> >.>
[21:42] <jmg123> ah I meant on you pi :-)
[21:43] <aaa801> Ok installing flash player 11 on the pi
[21:43] <corewillem> oh no on the pi i have tried openelec and rasbmc
[21:43] <corewillem> raspbmc
[21:43] <GabrialDestruir> It'd actually be kind of nice to get Ubuntu working on Rpi it'd be interesting.
[21:43] <corewillem> ;p
[21:43] <Timmmaaaayyy> what was better? openelec or raspbmc?
[21:43] <corewillem> both doesn't work
[21:43] <GabrialDestruir> I haven't tried raspbmc for a while.
[21:44] <corewillem> raspbmc installs and gives bootsplash and than black
[21:44] <corewillem> (but signal to my screen)
[21:44] <corewillem> openelec the same
[21:44] <GabrialDestruir> OpenElec works great, though it still seems to have a couple bugs here and there.
[21:44] <Timmmaaaayyy> raspbmc worked for me like two weeks ago. i was totally impressed with the majority of the playback. some files worked great....others not so much. all .mkv. i think it just dpeends on how heavily they're compressed
[21:44] <GabrialDestruir> Though I don't know if those bugs are just plugin bugs, or something wrong with xbmc itself
[21:44] <GabrialDestruir> etc
[21:44] <jmg123> is it just the stop openelec or raspbmc image, no modifications?
[21:44] <corewillem> and i both leth them 1 hour on that black screen
[21:45] <corewillem> yes
[21:45] <passstab> which images come with wifi drivers?
[21:45] <GabrialDestruir> Sounds to me like there's an issue between your Rpi and TV
[21:45] <GabrialDestruir> have you tried to force the hotplug?
[21:45] <jmg123> have you got a different sdcard or usb stick you could try them with?
[21:46] <corewillem> Raspbian ?wheezy? worked perfect
[21:46] <ziltro> Why do so many people use wireless LAN with a RPi?
[21:46] <corewillem> so i think my hardwre is fine
[21:46] <GabrialDestruir> I'd use WLAN with my rPi just to make it more portable.
[21:46] <ziltro> Surely it is simpler just to use the ethernet port?
[21:47] <markllama> ziltro++
[21:47] <markllama> except when there's no convenient net wall socket near your TV :-)
[21:47] <sraue> corewillem, maybe a psu issue? xbmc uses much resources and maybe needs a bit more power
[21:47] * markllama has convenient net wall sockets since he wired his own house.
[21:47] <sirspazzolot> ziltro for some reason everyone I know is dumbfounded by wired internet
[21:47] <ziltro> Surely that's a problem waiting for a fix then?
[21:47] <GabrialDestruir> I only use ethernet port because I have a convenient bridge near my TVs
[21:47] <millette> ziltro, a few aa batteries + wireless, what could you want more?
[21:48] <ziltro> Ethernet is so hard. You 1. Plug in the cable.
[21:48] <aaa801> Ok
[21:48] <aaa801> got official flash player on the pi
[21:48] <aaa801> :D
[21:48] <ziltro> Ah, if you run it on batteries that's different.
[21:48] <GabrialDestruir> o.O
[21:48] <corewillem> hmmm i have a power usb port
[21:48] <jmg123> btw here is the link to the raspbian+xbmc image http://silenz.se/download/raspbian-xbmc-2012-07-19.img.7z
[21:48] <GabrialDestruir> You have official flash player working on rPi?
[21:48] <corewillem> i will try that image
[21:48] <GabrialDestruir> I thought that was gonna be a big "NEVER GONNA HAPPEN"
[21:49] <jmg123> @coreWilliam once the pi has starte don't call startx
[21:49] <jmg123> do this:
[21:49] <ziltro> Isn't it a "please never let it happen"? ;)
[21:49] <passstab> my Ethernet is on a different floor from the TV

[21:49] <jmg123> clear ; sudo /usr/lib/xbmc/xbmc.bin
[21:49] <ziltro> Ah. Don't people install ethernet sockets by their TV these days then?
[21:50] <GabrialDestruir> Why would they when TVs have wireless adapters built in?
[21:50] <GabrialDestruir> lo
[21:50] <GabrialDestruir> lol*
[21:50] <ziltro> They do? Wow.
[21:50] <aaa801> GabrialDestruir: if you count running official flash within android on the pi

[21:52] <gordonDrogon> my TV is an old Sony flat screen tube and it has a big old degausing coil that goes thwup when you turn the TV on...
[21:52] <ziltro> I used some videophones. They were ... What's a non-fowl-language way to put it? Less then good.

[22:22] <gubbbel> What can I do?
[22:22] <jmg123> sd card reads/writes seem slow on the pi, even taking the sd card out and putting in in a usb reader can be a bit faster, so it's not the card itself

[22:48] <Stoob> Gabtendo: The raspberry pi does not have RCA audio but it does have a 3.5mm "TRS" jack for it
[22:48] <Matt> um
[22:48] <Matt> 3.5mm even
[22:48] <GabrialDestruir> er
[22:48] <Stoob> (which can be easily split with a Y adapter to L/R RCA audio)
[22:48] <Matt> 5.5mm would be just odd
[22:48] <GabrialDestruir> okay yea I thought it was 3.5 xD
[22:48] <Matt> given that the next typical size up is 6.4mm IIRC
[22:48] <Matt> 1/4" anyway :)

[22:53] <GabrialDestruir> all things consider I think I'm overpaying for that kind of stuff xD
[22:53] <gordonDrogon> Gah. There is no metrid for 1/4" jacks. They're 1/4" jacks.
[22:54] <gordonDrogon> *metric
[22:54] <GabrialDestruir> You could also do male to female if you have existing 3 adapter cords and then just use an existing cord
[22:54] <Stoob> http://www.octavainc.com/HDMI%20distribution%20amp_splitter%202%20port.html FR^2: It looks like the audio signal is encoded with the video so you'd need an active adapter :(

[23:48] <GabrialDestruir> the Pi gets really hot .-.
[23:49] <gordonDrogon> lupinedk, yes- standard debian ntp servers...
[23:49] <gordonDrogon> lupinedk, although you may want to add in your own country ones.
[23:49] <lupinedk> well cant find ntp-server in resp
[23:49] <gordonDrogon> GabrialDestruir, I have a pi under a piface board - it's warm, but not hot...
[23:49] <Wendo> lupinedk yup, what gordon said, although it will use DHCP supplied ones instead if they are supplied
[23:50] <gordonDrogon> lupinedk, it's just called 'ntp'
[23:50] <lupinedk> updatet the ntp server locations in config files
[23:50] <GabrialDestruir> The Lego case doesn't give a lot of venting room
[23:50] <lupinedk> how do i force update?
[23:50] <gordonDrogon> lupinedk, really really surprised ntp isn't installed by default though.
[23:50] <GabrialDestruir> so the heat all goes out by the ports

[23:50] <gordonDrogon> lupinedk, apt-get update;apt-get upgrade
[23:50] <GabrialDestruir> as a result all the ports are getting really hot
[23:50] <gordonDrogon> too hot to touch?
[23:51] <lupinedk> wellt time i mean ;)
[23:51] <gordonDrogon> oh, just wait. if ntp is running it'll get the right time, however, /etc/init.d/ntp restart
[23:51] <gordonDrogon> will restart it and it should force a time set at startup time.

[23:52] * PiBot sets mode +v mentar
[23:52] <gordonDrogon> GabrialDestruir, if your skin doesn't stick to it, it's not too hot...
[23:52] <lupinedk> still running two hours off precise. Even though i used a local server
[23:53] <gordonDrogon> lupinedk, ah, timezone.
[23:53] <GabrialDestruir> Heh...
[23:53] <aaa801> Android + pi = win
[23:53] <Wendo> lupindk, check for the existance of /var/lib/ntp/ntp.conf.dhcp
[23:53] <Wendo> it gets priority if it exists
[23:53] <gordonDrogon> lupinedk, try running tzconfig
[23:53] <GabrialDestruir> ugh for some reason my sdcard was partitioned with 4mb of unallocated space at the begining of the drive -.-
[23:54] <SwK> anyone know off hand where the config file for the mouse config on the debian image is? (for the that is)
[23:54] <gordonDrogon> lupinedk, or even sudo dpkg-reconfigure tzdata
[23:54] <lupinedk> ah thx gordonDrogon
[23:54] <lupinedk> that did the trick :)
[23:54] <lupinedk> and thx Wendo although it updatet right, just the timezone that was off
[23:54] <gordonDrogon> lupinedk, unix/linux time is always interally UTC - then the local timezone configurations make it human readable.

[23:55] * tech2077 (~tech2077@107-1-61-118-ip-static.hfc.comcastbusiness.net) Quit (Ping timeout: 255 seconds)
[23:55] <lupinedk> have a few services running, were time is rather important :)

[23:56] <GabrialDestruir> I thought most OS used NTP automatically if it had internet connection?
[23:56] <Wendo> if you're looking for it to absolutly work even if the network is down, a small gps module can also supply time
[23:57] <lupinedk> it does GabrialDestruir
[23:57] <lupinedk> just the timezones were off

[23:58] <ewindisch> interestingly, I've found I can't talk to an Arduino (via USB) and a UVC camera at the same time.
[23:59] * jprvita is now known as jprvita|afk
[23:59] <ewindisch> annoying but easily remedied, there is more than one way to talk to an Arduino, but good-to-know...
