[0:00] <sraue> trevorman, ok
[0:00] <techsurvivor> yeah i like the burn an image they're easy to maintain heh
[0:00] <trevorman> sraue: you need to use a utility to download the initial image, write it to the SD card then you boot off that which then downloads yet more stuff
[0:00] <techsurvivor> yeah, oh well, it was just a thought, thanks guys
[0:00] * fredreichbier (~fred@unaffiliated/fredreichbier) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:00] * PiBot sets mode +v fredreichbier
[0:01] <trevorman> kwerk: the menus are a bit sluggish yes
[0:01] <trevorman> kwerk: watching something is fine assuming its HW decoded
[0:01] <kwerk> it's fine, but barely fine.
[0:01] <sraue> trevorman, i know how raspbmc does this... its to complicated... makes not much sense to me
[0:01] <kwerk> and audio snaps between changing tracks.
[0:01] <kwerk> no smooth fade transitions at all.
[0:02] <trevorman> sraue: I agree. It seems very convoluted for no good reason.
[0:02] <kwerk> at least with the audio jack that is true.
[0:02] <techsurvivor> does openelec seem to have the same issues?
[0:02] * ThatOneGuy (~Computer_@ip-207-145-161-130.lax.megapath.net) has left #raspberrypi
[0:02] <trevorman> techsurvivor: no. you download everything in one go. you either build the SD yourself or you download a big unofficial SD card image and write it one go
[0:03] <sraue> techsurvivor, which issue? to install use a image you can burn to your sdcard, for updating to the official builds simply copy 4 files to a samba share on the rpi
[0:03] * dfarnsworth (~dfarnswor@router.zeniff.com) has left #raspberrypi
[0:04] <techsurvivor> they were talking about the sound crackling and what not between track changes
[0:04] <zgreg> intel says sandy bridge desktop parts can consume up to 112A (stock, no overclocking)
[0:04] <zgreg> Hodapp: so yes, I think over 100A is not that rare
[0:05] <techsurvivor> it isn't, i used to test chips for AMD, 80 amps was not uncommon, and that was a while ago currents have just gone up since then
[0:05] * kn1000 (~kn100@b0ff4a72.bb.sky.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:05] * PiBot sets mode +v kn1000
[0:06] <kn1000> techsurvivor, quick question, in terms of good quality usb cable, what sort of resistance should I be reading per meter for example
[0:06] <kn1000> just a rough average
[0:07] <techsurvivor> kn1000: i have no idea, i could measure a cable here I suppose
[0:07] <techsurvivor> a couple ohms at most if that probably
[0:07] <zgreg> techsurvivor: naturally, voltages have gone down, TDP hasn't :)
[0:07] <techsurvivor> it's down in the lower resolution of your meter probably heh
[0:07] * wan-gong-tsen (~wan@ppp-93-104-95-112.dynamic.mnet-online.de) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:07] * PiBot sets mode +v wan-gong-tsen
[0:07] <techsurvivor> most are made to measure resistors, not conductive paths
[0:07] <kn1000> techsurvivor, reading about 5 ohms for about 20cm of cable here from that crappy cable I had a few days ago
[0:08] <techsurvivor> looking for a cable i can actually put a probe too, these microusb's are too small to get a probe into anyway
[0:08] <kn1000> yeah I just cut mine
[0:09] * nickds (~nickds@02dc2c1c.bb.sky.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:09] * PiBot sets mode +v nickds
[0:09] <nickds> hello
[0:10] <kn1000> gonna use some cable out of a scart lead, seems much higher gauge

[0:11] * Inoperable (~USER_0@89-67-87-100.dynamic.chello.pl) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[0:12] <mongrelion> three more hours and raspberry pi again failed compiling nodejs \o/
[0:12] * nils_2 (~nils_2@unaffiliated/nils-2/x-2480262) Quit (Quit: WeeChat 0.3.9-dev)

[0:13] <techsurvivor> on my cheap extech i measured 0.6 ohms, i can't promise any accuracy :)

[0:14] * PiBot sets mode +v Mike632T
[0:14] <techsurvivor> that was on a fairly heavy grade A-A usb cable I have for a logic analyzer

[0:15] * PiBot sets mode +v Inoperable
[0:15] <kn1000> techsurvivor, yep so ultra cheap cable
[0:15] <kn1000> jesus
[0:15] * nickds (~nickds@02dc2c1c.bb.sky.com) Quit ()
[0:16] <techsurvivor> heh this was easy to get to the leads heh
[0:17] <techsurvivor> well relatively easy, micros are hard without a pin point probe and something like a vice and magnifying glass...
[0:17] <techsurvivor> not worth it, in other words, you should be fine, i think you just got hold of a dud the other day
[0:17] * Egbert9e9 (~un@IGLD-84-229-140-77.inter.net.il) Quit (Ping timeout: 246 seconds)
[0:17] <kn1000> measured almost 5 ohms over the raw cable.

[0:17] * PiBot sets mode +v ebswift
[0:18] <kn1000> gonna just make my own power transport lead out of overkill cable lol
[0:18] <techsurvivor> i'm using < $1 cables to power my rpis, i doubt that is your problem :)
[0:18] <kn1000> solve my power issues in one
[0:18] * mrdragons (~meh@46.166.147.104) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:18] * PiBot sets mode +v mrdragons
[0:18] <kn1000> probably a break somewhere i'd assume
[0:19] <kn1000> there we go
[0:19] <kn1000> on about a 1.5m length of higher quality load bearing cable, this stuff is getting about 1 ohm
[0:20] <techsurvivor> sure, and you probably haven't even tinned it yet :)
[0:20] <kn1000> yep
[0:20] <Tachyon`> I'd be very surrpised if the cable were the issue
[0:20] <kn1000> xD
[0:20] <techsurvivor> contact resistance will go down a little
[0:21] <techsurvivor> anyway, i think it maybe be overkill to run 00 cable to your rpi :)
[0:21] <kn1000> oo?
[0:22] <techsurvivor> .364 inch cable :)
[0:22] <techsurvivor> bad joke, we used to joke about using that "double ought" for our granding in the shop
[0:23] * mrdragons (~meh@46.166.147.104) Quit (Ping timeout: 245 seconds)
[0:23] <techsurvivor> between boards and such
[0:23] <techsurvivor> grounding that is
[0:25] <dwatkins> I think I'm still having power problems, as the network drops on my Pi a few minutes after booting up.

[0:25] * PiBot sets mode +v mrdragons
[0:26] <dwatkins> The voltage seems to be high enough, as I'm getting exactly 5 Volts over T1/T2.

[0:40] <aphadke> is there a solar powered supply one can buy for the pi?
[0:40] * Maccer (~Maccer@199.168.138.175) Quit (Excess Flood)
[0:41] <ziltro2> There might be solar USB 'phone chargers', don't know if they give out enough current. And I haven't used one/don't live where there is sun.
[0:41] * auska (~auska@unaffiliated/auska) Quit (Quit: Me'n vaig)
[0:42] <dwatkins> aphadke: I'd suggest a battery and solar cell together, since you probably can't rely on the sun that much on many places on the planet ;)
[0:42] <techsurvivor> it's pretty reliable here in texas and new mexico during the summer months
[0:43] <aphadke> dwatkins: yup, thats what i meant, looking @ http://pi.qcontinuum.com/project.html
[0:43] <ziltro2> It is pretty reliably not here in the UK all year round...

[0:46] <aphadke> i was looking @ http://www.xscyz.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=390
[0:46] <techsurvivor> heh
[0:47] <techsurvivor> lmgtfy.com
[0:47] <dwatkins> There are circuits to regulate the charge going in to a LiPoly battery which might work in conjunction with a Pi, but I've not tried it - I don't think the voltage is enough on this but you might find something similar that supplies 5 Volts: http://www.coolcomponents.co.uk/catalog/lipoly-charger-single-cell-p-650.html
[0:47] <dwatkins> ah ok, I guess you found what you need already :)

[0:53] <Mrgoose> Hi, does the raspberry pi do well playing non h.264 content. or does all my media need to encoded h.264 for reliable playback?
[0:54] <trevorman> mpeg4 i.e. xvid or h264

[1:03] <ziltro2> Surely Dirac lossless is better? ;)
[1:04] <Mrgoose> yea, I just have a lot of older media that isn't h264, so i guess I will need to rencode

[1:19] <WASD> Can the RPi be used to program microcontrollers?
[1:21] <bertrik> Probably not impossible, but it's not especially suited for that I'd say
[1:22] <JMichaelX> what is currently the best way to enable mp3 playback in raspbian?

[1:28] <npm> motion(1) left me no further work to do as it already does everything including built in webserver... winning!
[1:29] <WASD> My idea was to directly connect the GPIO to a microcontroller to program it
[1:29] <NullMoogleCable> hmmm
[1:29] <NullMoogleCable> NRF24L01+ Wireless Transceiver Modules might be fun to use with the pi
[1:29] <InControl> You can use the UART pins on the GPIO header to program a serial microcontroller
[1:30] <InControl> but that might be more complicated, pic/avr programmers are cheap on ebay

[5:08] <Hodapp> engkur: Debian or Arch might, actually, though you'd have to set up swap pretty early with 20 MB RAM
[5:09] <Hodapp> there is even a guide at tldp.org about how to run normal Linux on laptops with 2 MB RAM; this I guess was rather tricky because you had to enable swap even earlier here
[5:09] <ziltro2> engkur: Slackware did.
[5:09] <Hodapp> ah, yes, Slackware
[5:09] <ziltro2> I used that a lot before I knew what a package manager was.

[5:10] <Hodapp> I used that a lot because I had no Internet access on the box for a package manager to use.

[6:47] <Halts> just a standard usb hub
[6:47] <Halts> a 4 port hub, using too much power?
[6:47] <techsurvivor> my point was you might have just been marginal on power with the wireless and the hub pushed it over the edge
[6:48] <techsurvivor> the wifi parts can use considerable power
[6:49] <techsurvivor> some won't work at all unless you use a powered hub according to reports on the wiki
[6:49] <Halts> have a link?
[6:49] <Halts> to that specific wiki

[6:53] <techsurvivor> most will probably work, those are just ones people were nice enough to add to the wiki
[6:53] * Xark notes the 7-port powered Belkin hub from BB works nicely (beefy power supply too).
[6:53] <techsurvivor> try it with a keyboard, if it works with the keyboard it probably will
[6:54] <techsurvivor> otherwise buy one someone mentioned :)

[6:58] <Xark> Halts: I have this one http://www.amazon.com/Belkin-Ultra-Slim-Series-7-Port-USB/dp/B005A0B4B4/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1344315319&sr=8-3&keywords=usb+hub+belkin+7+port (there is a very similar 4 port one too).
[6:58] <Halts> maaaan $40
[6:58] <techsurvivor> just get a four port heh
[6:58] <Halts> its still like $30
[6:58] <Halts> :/
[6:59] <Xark> This isn't the cheapest hub available (however 4 port is a bit less) -> v

[6:59] <Halts> I'll see if best buy has it tomorrowww
[7:00] <Halts> and return this one i bought as well
[7:00] <Xark> I got mine at Best Buy (I think it is the nicest one they had).
[7:00] <techsurvivor> can't you see if they have it online?
[7:01] <Halts> best buys site is hard to find things on :S

[7:03] <Halts> rad, the store im going to tomorrow has it
[7:03] <Halts> I was all "fuck yeah, finally get to play with my pi
[7:04] <Halts> but now, i have to drop $30 poop.
[7:05] <SebastianFlyte> Has anyone used a network of Raspberrypi's for Hadoop nodes?

[7:06] * ka6sox-away is now known as ka6sox
[7:09] <techsurvivor> hadoop is above my paygrade heh. anyone messes with the gpio? I can't seem to get it to toggle faster than a 3.5khz or so clock rate
[7:09] <techsurvivor> must be doing something wrong
[7:10] <Xark> techsurvivor: Are you using GPIO driver or hitting the bits directly?
[7:10] * Quietlyawesome94 (~chatzilla@adsl-074-184-089-183.sip.asm.bellsouth.net) Quit (Quit: ChatZilla 0.9.88.2 [Firefox 14.0.1/20120722203403])
[7:10] <techsurvivor> i'm using wiringPI which i think uses the gpio library underneath, but I could be wrong, i just started
[7:11] <Xark> techsurvivor: Yeah. I suspect that adds a lot of overhead and I suspect may be the bottleneck. I think it has to do a user <-> kernel transition every call.
[7:11] <techsurvivor> it uses a sleep, so that could be the issue (nanosleep)
[7:11] <Xark> techsurvivor: That probably isn't helping. :)
[7:11] <techsurvivor> i think the context switching might be killing it, but it is very "regular
[7:11] <techsurvivor> "
[7:12] <Xark> techsurvivor: remove the sleep before you say you "can't go faster" then 3.5Khz. :)
[7:12] <techsurvivor> anyway, just curious, trying to figure out what some of the limits are :)
[7:12] <techsurvivor> well that's the way wiringPi does it, I don't want to mess with the guts of it
[7:12] <Xark> techsurvivor: I see. Not designed for performance, obviously. :)
[7:12] <techsurvivor> just getting started, I'll look at direct writes next
[7:13] <techsurvivor> probably just designed for fun...
[7:13] <Xark> Sure, fun and "easy".
[7:13] <techsurvivor> and use busy loops instead of sleeps
[7:13] <techsurvivor> althought that's horrible on performance heh, i'm just curious
[7:14] <Xark> techsurvivor: It may not be "friendly" to other tasks, but it may be good for performance (vs sleep).
[7:14] <techsurvivor> yeah, i know, this isn't my first rodeo, just my first pi :)

[7:32] <techsurvivor> but that's not surprise, it will take someone with a lot more experience than me, but I did patch it up and build but it never went to completion
[7:33] <techsurvivor> (the kernel compile)
[7:35] <nevyn> have you built a kernel for a "regular" system before?

[11:53] <steve_rox> i shall take a read thu it
[11:54] <fairuz> steve_rox: I have no idea on a good project either :(

[11:54] <fairuz> Installed a web server on it, but boring
[11:54] * fairuz nods
[11:54] <steve_rox> even if i do think of some electronic project for the gpio ports to use i dont know python scripting to utilize it
[11:55] <fairuz> steve_rox: Try bash scripting, maybe it's easier

[11:55] <steve_rox> there is a guy that was able to convert that 3.5 inch lcd from 12v to 5v by bypassing a regulator , perhaps i could try that
[11:55] <steve_rox> but id need some kinda protection circuit to prevent >5v
[11:56] <fairuz> Maybe will try to buy a relay and a sensor. Something like, automatically light a bulb when it's dark
[11:56] <steve_rox> that needs a LDR
[11:56] <steve_rox> kinda stuck for project ideas aghhh
[11:57] <steve_rox> installing a pi into a car would be easy as hell but what would you make it do in the car
[11:59] <gordonDrogon> you can control the LEDs via GPIO via bash quite easilly.
[11:59] <gordonDrogon> I wrote a program to help do it too...
[11:59] <steve_rox> i would need example code and stuff

[12:02] <gordonDrogon> well, you can program the GPIO in BASIC if you want to...
[12:02] <gordonDrogon> I wrote a BASIC interprerter that runs on the Pi too.
[12:02] <steve_rox> what form of basic?
[12:03] <gordonDrogon> pretty basic BASIC.
[12:03] <gordonDrogon> but 'structured'
[12:03] <gordonDrogon> quick example: http://unicorn.drogon.net/rtb/circles.rtb
[12:04] <steve_rox> ahh
[12:04] <steve_rox> :-)
[12:04] <phire> ahhhh, basic
[12:04] <steve_rox> one mad part of me wants to be able to have some kinda server on the pi to make it connect to a vb6 client then i could use that to manipulate it
[12:05] <fairuz> I just read about charlieplexing :D Should try this one out. Looks easy to setup.
[12:05] <gordonDrogon> with or without line numbers: http://unicorn.drogon.net/rtb/flt.rtb
[12:05] <steve_rox> whats a charileplexing? if its anything like that star trek eppasode we are all doomed
[12:05] <steve_rox> it has a few words in the basic im not famiulre with
[12:05] <gordonDrogon> charliplexing is a good technique, but it really need a dedicated micro controller, or lots of PWM outputs.
[12:06] <gordonDrogon> you'll end up with flicker on the Pi if you're not careful.
[12:06] <gordonDrogon> but have a look at this for some techniques to reduce it on a multiplexed display:
[12:06] <steve_rox> what is this charliplexing?
[12:06] <gordonDrogon> https://projects.drogon.net/7-segment-led-display-for-the-raspberry-pi/
[12:07] <gordonDrogon> a way of making more LEDs light up than you have IO pins.
[12:07] <steve_rox> heh will have veryone building their own fake bombs before long
[12:07] <TeeCee> Fake bombs running fork bombs! :D
[12:07] <steve_rox> only problem is the pi wont run longer than a hour or so on 4AAA
[12:08] <gordonDrogon> so with 8 pins, you could have a 4x4 matrix of LEDs - 16 LEDs - with charlieplexing that increases to some silly number like 30 or 40 (there is a calcualtion, but I don't have it to hand)
[12:08] <steve_rox> i allways thought controlling a large ammount of LED would be cool
[12:08] <steve_rox> for makeing custom signs or cool animation
[12:08] <gordonDrogon> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charlieplexing
[12:08] <gordonDrogon> 8 pins = 56 LEDs.
[12:09] <steve_rox> ah my project involved like 500 led's
[12:09] <steve_rox> i dident start it in the end tho
[12:10] <steve_rox> the software calculator website suggested id need over 100V to run it :-P
[12:10] <gordonDrogon> better off using more modern technology like using the ws2801 chip to drive 100's of LEDs via a serial itnerface.
[12:10] <gordonDrogon> e.g. http://adafruit.com/products/322
[12:11] <gordonDrogon> still looking for a UK source for them though.
[12:11] <steve_rox> ive got breadboard here and some led's etc but i dont know python or anything to utilise it
[12:11] <steve_rox> its gonna be a slow devlopment
[12:11] <gordonDrogon> so use something other than python.

[12:12] <gordonDrogon> you mean a gui development environment?
[12:12] <fairuz> gordonDrogon: Nice
[12:12] <steve_rox> yeah
[12:12] <InControl> GUI for GPIO would be good
[12:13] <fairuz> I assume that is for controlling the gpio from gui
[12:13] <steve_rox> a gui in the os :-P
[12:13] <gordonDrogon> since my BASIC supports the GPIO, it's just a few 100 lines of BASIC code.

[13:45] <steve_rox> the ribbon socket next to sd card reader
[13:45] <ne2k> steve_rox: or you could actually look at the documentation and determine that it's a DSI connector
[13:45] <bircoe> there is no ribbon socket next to the sd card
[13:45] <ne2k> bircoe: on the top, I presume he means
[13:46] <bircoe> well that's the HDMI connector...
[13:46] <steve_rox> hmmz
[13:46] <bircoe> SD is on bottom
[13:46] <ne2k> bircoe: the HDMI connector is on the side
[13:46] <ne2k> S2 is a DSI connector

[13:47] <bircoe> no NY
[13:47] <ne2k> InControl: that's what I thought ;-)
[13:48] <ne2k> that MicroSD thing is just what I'm looking for. looks like someone went to quite a lot of effort to make a PCB
[13:48] <bircoe> I can't wait for an LCD addon that uses the DSI port... and a Camera addon that uses the CSI port... damn too many addons
[13:49] <ne2k> I don't think it's a faked-up image, looks real. Lucker23 should sell them!
[13:49] <InControl> trouble is the add-on will be LVDS bridge
[13:49] <bircoe> that's ok still
[13:49] <InControl> so only 10"+ LCD's tend to use that interface
[13:49] <bircoe> I just stripped a laptop for parts and kept it's LCD for this very purpose!
[13:49] <ne2k> what I really want is proper ALSA support for the onboard sound chip so I can use jack on it
[13:50] <bircoe> ne2k: here's your microSD mod... a dob of hot glue and 10 minutes of cutting wires and soldering and your done.

[13:51] <ne2k> bircoe: damn, it's the same price as the flash card ;-)
[13:51] <ne2k> bircoe: thanks for the link though, that could be very handy
[13:52] <ne2k> bircoe: tbh, if I'm going to use wires, might as well just use a full size SD card anyway
[13:52] <ne2k> and mount it elsewhere so it doesn't stick out
[13:52] <bircoe> or this:
[13:52] <bircoe> http://www.ebay.com/itm/MicroSD-Breakout-Board-breadboarding-electronics-kits-uSD-BO-V2A-/261064821579?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3cc8ad0b4b

[13:57] <ne2k> bircoe: same manufacturer looks like they make some really handy test kit http://elabguy.com/
[13:57] <InControl> I wonder if the SD will stick out in future revisions of pi
[13:57] <InControl> if it is going to be a long term thing then maybe someone should make half hight SD cards
[13:58] <ne2k> InControl: I think a half-height SD to micro SD adapter that takes the micro SD sideways would be the most sensible product to design
[13:58] <ne2k> then people can carry on making SD cards and micro SD cards
[13:58] <bircoe> I'd assume there will be a revision at some point, which will also address the USB ports... and hopefully the lack of DC socket
[13:58] <InControl> apparently pi has problems with many micrsd though ?
[13:58] <ne2k> InControl: haven't tried, to be fair
[13:58] <RaTTuS|BIG> DC socket?
[13:58] <bircoe> I've run several uSD's without issue
[13:59] <bircoe> DC barrel jack instead of uUSB port
[13:59] <ne2k> I'm powering mine from header pins 2 and 6
[13:59] <RaTTuS|BIG> no - they will never move from that
[13:59] <bircoe> most cheap phone chargers suck
[13:59] <InControl> I was thinking about making a power board with a DC socket that would power the pi from GPIO to do away with that stupid micro USB
[13:59] <RaTTuS|BIG> DC mean more RPi's will get fried
[13:59] <nid0> hopefully there will be the addition of poe in future though
[14:00] <bircoe> well in that case I'll be breaking it off and epoxying on a DC jack.
[14:00] <ne2k> InControl: put a regulator on the board too
[14:00] <bircoe> POE would be the ducks nuts!
[14:00] <RaTTuS|BIG> bircoe - just power from the GPIO pins
[14:00] <booyaa> wouldn't hold you breath
[14:00] <bircoe> <RaTTuS|BIG> I'm pretty happy with my plans...
[14:00] <booyaa> could use a poe extractor though right?
[14:01] <nid0> the foundation have said for ages that theyd like to provide poe in future releases

[14:09] <ne2k> drogon: the people who need it can add a splitter

[14:09] <drogon> I use passive PoE for various boards in my office though, but I'd need to get an adaptor to go from 3.5mm jack to micro usb..

[14:10] <ne2k> drogon: I put an IDC connector on the end of the wires that come off the passive PoE splitter and put that on to GPIO pins 2 and 6
[14:10] <jticket> Most linux OS's, you can run it under debian as well, by compiling as kernel module, or patching the kernel.
[14:10] <drogon> I did once plug in a passive PoE cable into a Pi... It had 18V going down it... The unused wires inside the Pi's Ethernet connector have terminating resistors on them and they got somewhat hot...
[14:11] <bircoe> jticket: there are quite a few distros for Pi including Debian, so as long as the dependencies can be met then you'll be able to compile it.
[14:12] <InControl> the closed nature of the Pi architecture is the limiting factor, if it was an open design then people could build variations of the pi for specific needs.
[14:12] <bircoe> will = should
[14:12] <jticket> checkout linux-speakup.org also for software speech synthesis you'll need espeak, and speechd-up which is the interface between speech-dispatcher and speakup, because it doesn't directly support software speech.
[14:14] <drogon> anyone with a Pi handy? I'm out of my office right now and want to know how easy it might be to remove R21 and R27 - they might be near the 3.5mm audio jack...
[14:14] <drogon> looking to hack into both PWM channels.
[14:15] <bircoe> just had a look... they look like they'd be painful, tweezers magnifying glass and a really small iron tip!
[14:15] <InControl> For example I would quite like to build a pi based board that dumps the Composite, CSI, DSI and micro USB connectors, and uses the space to replace the 2-way GPIO header with a 40pin one that has extra connections

[14:27] <zgreg> the peripheral datasheet is only a drop in a bucket
[14:27] <zgreg> it covers a really small part of the SoC
[14:28] <drogon> bircoe, thanks! Hm a bit small :)
[14:28] <Gadget-Work> tbh, other SOC chips are available. Move on.
[14:29] <bircoe> Check out some of the Allwinner A10 devices... they seem to be much easier to develop.
[14:29] <buZz> bircoe: not so much
[14:30] <buZz> bircoe: just that they are cheap, doesnt make allwinner produce any docs ;)
[14:30] <buZz> cheap devices usually just have a lot moar developers
[14:30] <buZz> because most are cheapskates
[14:31] <bircoe> price is not what i was basing my comment on... the shear amount of devices out there using the SOC is what i based my comments on.
[14:31] <drogon> InControl, I'm sort of dissapointed the unused 'DNC' pins of the GPIO are connected to either +5, +3.3 or ground rather than being left floating..
[14:31] <drogon> I could have soldered a wire to one of the unused pins for example to take the 2nd PWM out..
[14:32] <buZz> bircoe: sadly 99% of those devices are run-of-the-mill android tablets that will never see a developer
[14:32] * LWK_mac (~LWK@pdpc/supporter/student/lwk) Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[14:32] <chithead> they could connect the dnc pins to 400 V~ if they wanted to
[14:32] <drogon> well they could, but there's not 400v on the board... but it would have been better to simply not connect them at all IMO.
[14:33] <InControl> true, would have been useful. but I think originally they were intended as ground points for the different signal types, but later they decided to mark them DNC instead so that they could route extra IO there in a future revision.
[14:33] <drogon> I'm actually considring pulling a pin out, running a drill down the hole to remove the plating, pushing it back in just to disconnect it, but that's a bit 'hard-core' ..
[14:33] <chithead> bircoe: there are some devices with allwinner and ingenic socs which invite hacking. for economic purposes they ship with android, but they allow you to replace it with your own os
[14:34] <bircoe> i know this...

[14:48] <bircoe> I've got a bunch of Sega Megadrives should I just remove the Z80's from them?
[14:48] <buZz> bircoe: Z80 is much easier to develop for, as there are at least 892347892374892379872938 Z80 processors in the world ;)
[14:49] <buZz> maybe we should just abandon upgrading to newer tech and move backwards? there will be more docs, knowledge and devices in it for us!
[14:49] <drazyl> 8 bits is enough for anyone
[14:50] <bircoe> but can it run Crysis?
[14:50] <chithead> we have to go 16 bit before we go 8 bit. someone should revive the linux port to 80286 cpus
[14:50] <buZz> chithead: uClinux?
[14:50] <buZz> i think that already compiles for 80286
[14:50] <drazyl> I had xenix on an 8088, so why not

[15:40] <buZz> markllama: nothing really, just trying to get you to volunteer for something
[15:40] <drogon> I'm looking to release some code (a library) but I want to be able to dual-license it so I can sell support for it...
[15:40] <TheBrayn> which webserver do you use on the rpi?
[15:40] <drogon> thinking of releasing it under gpl3 as well as a commercial license...
[15:40] <markllama> I may need volunteers at some point but I'm still cogitating
[15:40] <buZz> drogon: i think you can sell support for any software
[15:40] <buZz> regardless of license
[15:40] <drogon> just pondering thoughts on it really.
[15:40] <TheBrayn> I'm looking for something lightweight
[15:40] <drogon> buzz sure...

[15:41] <drogon> yea, maybe I'm just being a bit too "tight" with the code though - gplv3 rather than lgpl2, etc.
[15:41] <drogon> (this isn't wiringPi fwiw)
[15:41] <buZz> gplv3 is not so terrible
[15:42] <buZz> but imho, we all need to move to WTF license :)
[15:42] <drogon> :)
[15:42] <buZz> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WTFPL
[15:42] <stain> drogon: if you dual-license, then any contributions you get back, like patches, will have to be from contributors who sign over the rights to you, otherwise you can't redistribute their patches in the commercial code
[15:42] <drogon> I guess my aim would be to allow enthusiasts, etc. to use my code as it is but to limit their ability to generate revenue from it...
[15:43] <stain> many companies give you commercial support for GPL code
[15:43] <stain> for instance: Redhat
[15:43] <buZz> drogon: man, thats impossible
[15:43] <drogon> stain, not much of an issue I think.
[15:43] <buZz> drogon: like if you make Gimp, you cant prevent ppl making shitloads of money with nice artwork they draw in uit

[15:44] <buZz> what makes you better than me?
[15:44] <stain> you would need to distribute it as a non-free license then. Part of the freedom of opensource is that you give people to do what they want, usually as long as they stay with the same license
[15:44] <drogon> buZz, imorral to want to earn money from my work? I don't think so...
[15:44] <buZz> if your support for your library is stupid
[15:44] <buZz> and i have better support
[15:44] <buZz> why are you blocking that support for YOUR code?
[15:44] <drogon> because I want money to support it.
[15:44] <buZz> thats fine
[15:44] <buZz> but why block others?
[15:44] * hyperair (~hyperair@ubuntu/member/hyperair) has joined #raspberrypi

[15:45] <drogon> gpl3 won't block others from selling support for it.

[15:45] <buZz> TheBrayn: yeah, so he wants to fuck his users
[15:45] <TheBrayn> sure
[15:45] <buZz> this will not make your library popular
[15:45] <drogon> like mysql isn't popular?
[15:45] <buZz> drogon: are you also going to block outputting google-able error messages?
[15:45] <TheBrayn> unless you are working at apple, ubisoft or ea
[15:45] <stain> if you do a library as GPL, then any commercials users of that would also need to distribute their thing as GPL - which is probably your intention, so that they come to you for a commercial license
[15:45] <buZz> anyone can do mysql support
[15:45] <TheBrayn> especially apple :>
[15:45] <drogon> buZz, what? it's just a library of code.
[15:45] <Hodapp> ...well, MySQL is a bad example since it became a lot less popular after Oracle fucked it up.
[15:46] * SpeedEvil (~quassel@tor/regular/SpeedEvil) Quit (Ping timeout: 245 seconds)
[15:46] <buZz> drogon: your library never has errors?
[15:46] <stain> I would go for the author for support, if (s)he/they are up to it. Go for the source, man!
[15:46] <buZz> stain: of course
[15:46] <stain> possibly just hire the guy
[15:46] <buZz> but not BLOCK any other guy from helping you
[15:46] <drogon> my aim would be to sell commercial users the code under a differnet license - one that tehy could then take and use as they saw fit (but not sell the code)
[15:46] <buZz> imho thats really stupid
[15:47] <stain> well, you are free to distribute your code as you please, as long as it is your copyright
[15:47] <stain> so that would not affect the GPL version at all
[15:47] <buZz> well
[15:47] <stain> as long as you keep other contributions out of your commercial edition
[15:47] <drogon> the code is actually written - I'm not lookinh for community support for it. I'm already using it in commercial projects.
[15:47] <buZz> someone could also just fork your GPL version
[15:47] <buZz> and give support for it
[15:47] <drogon> buZz, that's fine by me.
[15:47] <stain> buZz: yes, but they would be hampered by GPL, drogon can sell them under any-license
[15:48] <drogon> I'm just looking to release it for others to use if they want to.
[15:48] <stain> particularly US companies have lawyers who just freak out if they see GPL anywhere
[15:48] <drogon> I'm not intersted in the US - I live in the UK.
[15:48] <stain> so you won't sell to US companies?
[15:48] <drogon> I'm already selling and maintaining this code - all I'm after is looking at a way to allow others to use it without the burden of commerce.
[15:49] <MasterGeek> thats fine unless you take commits under gpl and implement the gpl fixes in the commercial kinda breaks the chain of trust
[15:49] <stain> the software I'm working on is LGPL, and some pharmaseutical companies was very worried about that - they had not read the license and seen that any extensions they do they could then distribute as they please
[15:49] <stain> drogon: just pump it out as GPL3 then
[15:50] <stain> works for mySQL
[15:50] <stain> well
[15:50] <stain> until they got bought
[15:50] <stain> if that counts as works
[15:50] <buZz> we sold tshirts at a nerdparty couple of years ago
[15:50] <buZz> and if you release GPLv3 code at the event, you got a 50% discount ;)
[15:50] <markllama> I think the best way to keep people from "ripping you off" is to support it well and keep enhancing
[15:50] <buZz> many oneliners got pushed to GPLv3 that week :P
[15:50] <drogon> markllama, that's my plan.
[15:50] <markllama> then you don't need a restrictive license
[15:51] <drogon> ok. some intersting thoughts there, thanks.
[15:51] <buZz> ;)
[15:51] <markllama> In general, attempts to partially restrict have ended up in convoluted wierdness. See sleepycat db
[15:51] <drogon> stain, yea, I moved wiringPi to lgpl2 for that reason...
[15:52] <ziltro2> Why not LGPLv3?
[15:52] * drogon ponders.
[15:52] <drogon> Ah, it is v3.
[15:52] <drogon> doh!
[15:52] <markllama> you kind of have a choice: Open and accept the risks, or closed (yeah, there's some wiggle room)
[15:52] <acausal> hm, this hub really is dodgy. it doesnt work properly on a desktop either
[15:53] <stain> drogon: I think GPL3 will be the best choice for you if you want to keep that distinction, it is one of the strictest open source licenses, even requiring no-patents, and anyone linking to it would have to be GPL3 (or later) as well. If you want bigger uptake, then LGPL; protecting fixes/changes to your bit, but not caring about what is linked to it
[15:53] <acausal> oh well, it was cheap. and it still works as a couple of usb charge ports :P
[15:53] <MasterGeek> lol its not like your releasing photoshop, or 3dstudio max, its a tiny lib
[15:53] <stain> drogon: since you think there might be commercial actors that might use your code anyway on the open source license, then why not at least ensure they can't patent you away
[15:54] <drogon> yea, it's a tiny lib for ATmegas or PICs ...
[15:55] <MasterGeek> right, but coders writing code for such, im sure would be able to bang a lib together on the fly no ?
[15:57] <drogon> very probably, but I've had some home users/enthusiasts asking about it recently.
[15:57] <TheBrayn> https://github.com/raspberrypi/tools/blob/master/mkimage/imagetool-uncompressed.py this script is really awful

[15:58] <ziltro2> Write it better then. :)
[15:58] <drogon> yea, it's open source, fork it ;-)
[15:58] <TheBrayn> there is a pull request which improves it
[15:59] <TheBrayn> but it seems like it is no longer needed
[15:59] <TheBrayn> But I doubt the person who wrote this knew much about python
[15:59] <stain> my god, is this written by a C-programmer?
[16:01] <stain> man, I Still don't understand what it does.. and I've coded python for 10 years
[16:01] <stain> he's looking for hex numbers
[16:01] <stain> then.. shifting them?
[16:01] <stain> 4 times
[16:01] <stain> uuh?
[16:02] <stain> he's extracting the bytes of the number
[16:02] <MasterGeek> i dont need the lib, im just saying that if its not millions of lines of code, then chances are its not going to need protection from commercial interests.
[16:02] <TheBrayn> stain: the worst part is the os.system

[16:08] <mongrelion> how are things going?
[16:08] <w0m> is there a definitive "use this wifi dongle" yet?
[16:08] <mongrelion> last night I left rpi compiling nodejs and I just woke up to see error writing to /tmp/foo.bar: no space left on device :D
[16:09] * andypiper (~andypiper@pdpc/supporter/professional/andypiper) Quit (Ping timeout: 245 seconds)
[16:09] <stain> but it's javascript, why does it need to be compiled?
[16:09] <stain> w0m: all of them seem to be 'get a usb hub'
[16:10] <w0m> which is what i'd like to avoid :/
[16:10] <mongrelion> stain: the v8 needs to be compiled.
[16:10] <TheFarfar> w0m: you can try and disable eth0
[16:10] <stain> I've seen someone use a very tiny one that just barely sticks out.. but don't know the brand
[16:10] <mongrelion> anyways, what's the best approach to fix the tmp issue? :/
[16:10] <TheFarfar> w0m: if there's problem with wifi
[16:10] <stain> TheBrayn: how do we do that? I guess it's not enough just to not load the kernel module?
[16:10] <drazyl> stain !!!
[16:11] <stain> drazyl..?
[16:11] <w0m> main ethernet shares bus iirc. I haven't ordered yet for my pi's;i guess i'll just go off wiki..
[16:11] <drazyl> (I suspect you mean a EW-7811 btw)
[16:11] <nid0> w0m, any cheap nano adaptor will work just fine
[16:11] <TheBrayn> stain: huh?
[16:11] <nid0> they all use rtl8188cu chipsets

[16:12] <stain> TheBrayn: sorry, you are the other The* person here ;)
[16:12] <TheBrayn> btw: did anyone write any asm for the rpi?
[16:12] <stain> drazyl: looks like it.. is it good?
[16:12] <TheBrayn> afaik arm assembly is much nicer than x86 asm so I would like to do some asm on the rpi

[16:13] <markllama> x86 instruction set is a pita
[16:13] <stain> I put in a really old stick I had, and it worked, but blew the power out of the port as soon as I downloaded something
[16:13] <nid0> stain: that edimax is one of the many cheap nano adaptors that're all the same with an rtl8188cu chipset
[16:13] <TheBrayn> are there any armv6 asm instructions you can recommend?
[16:14] <nid0> there're cheaper and more expensive ones than the edimax, theyre all basically the same

[16:30] <mongrelion> after reboot it wouldn't boot up.
[16:31] <coin3d> mho, shit. whats a low class sd card?

[16:32] <coin3d> mongrelion: the strange thing is that the "old" raspbian images, e.g. by hexxeh worked like a charm
[16:32] <nid0> w0m, none of that's true as long as you have a proper power supply for the pi itself
[16:32] <mongrelion> I got this rapsbian on Sunday.
[16:33] <nid0> w0m: assuming the pi is receiving its power properly it can deliver 140ma per usb port, which is more than ample for modern nano dongles
[16:33] <nid0> i've got 2 pis running with rtl8188cu dongles directly connected, and never had any power-related issues with them

[16:34] <nid0> coin3d: no
[16:34] <mru> according to usb spec, each port must supply 100mA no matter what
[16:34] <coin3d> or are the sources from github specially patched for the raspbbery?
[16:34] <mru> the attached device can request up to 500mA which may or may not be granted

[16:51] <techsurvivor> it is too much to swallow when you're new, I agree
[16:52] <Hodapp> It is too much for anyone to swallow, and the man who created it even said that.
[16:52] <MasterGeek> Should just force 6 yo's to learm assembly then

[17:00] <drogon> I did some experiments years ago about trying to keep as much as possible read only - with separate partitions. So /, /usr was easy, but /etc was a bit harder but not ipossible.
[17:00] <drogon> if you had a partition for e.g. /media then that could be r/o except when adding new music/vids.
[17:00] <mru> writes to /etc should be rare
[17:00] <mikma> or maybe the cheaper one, prodige version of dinivo
[17:00] <drogon> that leaves /var - log files and so on.
[17:01] <mru> it doesn't matter if log files get trashed
[17:01] <drogon> mru, I think its rarer now - this was back in sunOs/Solaris days...
[17:01] <markllama> There are specific guidelines I think for RO OS stuff for net boot
[17:01] <mikma> wlan + bluetooth in the car pc -> drive infront of the house and copy fresh music from the home lan :D
[17:01] <mongrelion> what's the point on keeping them read only?
[17:01] <techsurvivor> booyaa: from same forum topic there is a blog from someone who has been experimenting with scratch/python http://cymplecy.wordpress.com/2012/07/20/how-i-got-scratch-talking-to-my-raspberry_pi/
[17:02] <drogon> mongrelion, in the case of a PC that might be power cycled at random - keep as much as possible in RAM or "read mostly"
[17:03] <MichelleZ> you could always have a back up battery/super cap and a ext voltage detection circuit so that it asserts a GPIO on a power fail (but runs on backup) then gracefully shuts down, should be pretty easy to do
[17:04] <drogon> you may find there's a "car on" sense wire system anyway - so if you could monitor that, use it to halt and drop a relay holding power to the Pi...
[17:05] <drogon> a shutdown pi will take as much current as a running one ...

[17:05] <techsurvivor> MichelleZ: good idea, I like supercaps ;)
[17:06] <MichelleZ> yea but if you are using a supercap that does not really matter, it will just discharge, a battery however in that situation is not such a good idea
[17:06] <techsurvivor> it's pretty easy to sense loss of power and then initiate system shutdown with a script + cron
[17:06] * alexBr (~alex@p4FEA2BC6.dip.t-dialin.net) Quit (Quit: Konversation terminated!)
[17:06] <MichelleZ> a cap, a diode, a handfull of resistors and a fet should so that
[17:07] <MichelleZ> oh and a 5v regulator ;-)
[17:07] <techsurvivor> or just a script that runs once every 5 seconds or something
[17:07] <drogon> I sort of prefer a more mechanical approach, but maybe that's just me ... possibly because it's what I did 25 years ago...
[17:08] <techsurvivor> i've built a system like michelle mentioned, but we had a battery and not a supercap, i've been wanting to use one ;)
[17:08] <drogon> any excuse :)
[17:08] <techsurvivor> it wasn't linux either, but we had to write out sensor data properly as long as we could

[17:10] <MichelleZ> tbh in a car,as drogon already said there should be a sense wire anyway. On the ISO radio plug there should be a +12 constant and a +12 ignition
[17:10] <MichelleZ> you need to confg the relay as a latch controlled from the pi, but that will also work. Might require a kernel mod so when the system is halted it assets/deasserts the GPIO to release the latch
[17:10] <drogon> MichelleZ, that's what I used - the ignition closed a relay which booted the computer 6502 based!) and then an output on the computer fed th relay via a diode from the +12 constant...
[17:11] <drogon> so the computer could turn itself off by dropping the output, opening the relay.
[17:11] <drogon> wonder what value supercap might be needed to keep a Pi running for 10 seconds ...
[17:14] <drogon> hm not cheap. 14F capacitor for ?14 ..
[17:14] <MichelleZ> 1F super cap at 12v at 700mA discharge will be a 6.6 V after 10seconds
[17:15] <techsurvivor> well in emergency cases you could just kill -9 and properly unmount the file systems lol

[17:16] <techsurvivor> the main thing is to not corrupt the file system in most cases
[17:16] <drogon> depending on what I was doing, I'd be tempted to run it in RAM..
[17:16] <techsurvivor> also split up critical files from non critical and put them on read only partition might be useful, never tried on linux though
[17:16] <drogon> I used to build little 'embeded' PCs to run asterisk and ran it entirely from RAM.
[17:17] <drogon> load an initrd.gz into ramdisk and.. well, just leave it there!
[17:17] <techsurvivor> you can always mount a ram file system and prevent even more stuff from getting corrupted
[17:17] <techsurvivor> i did that

[17:17] <techsurvivor> start a new distro "Bullet Proof Rpi"
[17:18] <drogon> the problem with that is you run out of RAM ):
[17:18] <techsurvivor> that's a problem with lots of embedded systems

[17:20] <MichelleZ> so i did some more experiements with the funcube dongle, (its basicly looks like a soundcard running at 2 channels 96khz) and the PI can read from that fine at full speed but will suddenly stop and the USB locks up

[17:20] <techsurvivor> another thing i found if it helps anyone, I hang my raspberry pi up on the wall and the wireless works a lot better than on the floor
[17:20] <MichelleZ> i'm still useing eeprom like that ;-/
[17:21] <drogon> it was actually a prototype for an industrial control board I designed way back...
[17:21] <drogon> it hooked to the IO board with relays, darlington drivers, etc.

[17:22] <techsurvivor> they always looked like a rats nest
[17:22] <Gabtendo> I can use the hdmi input on my laptop and use my laptop screen for now, right?
[17:22] <drogon> Gabtendo, so stop chatting here and get it plugged in and going! :)
[17:23] <drogon> Gabtendo, er is it an input on the latop or an output?
[17:23] <Gabtendo> *input*
[17:23] <MichelleZ> so i've ruled out power as being my USB problem as powed hub or not it does the same, iffy usb drivers?
[17:23] <cornflake> input
[17:23] <techsurvivor> wirewrap was great for prototyping when throughold was the big thing :)
[17:23] <drogon> wow. laptop with an hdmi input... new one on me! Go for it then...
[17:23] <Gabtendo> I have both an input and an output, I'm asking, if I'm already running windows (ugh) on the laptop, will it even do anything when I hook the hdmi in to my raspi
[17:23] <techsurvivor> it could have a comeback with breakout boards ;)
[17:24] <techsurvivor> i've never heard of a laptop with hdmi IN
[17:24] <techsurvivor> but i'm not that smart either
[17:24] <drogon> techsurvivor, possibly... I used an electric wirewrap 'gun' then... hated the manual/hand ones.
[17:24] <techsurvivor> yeah, a lot faster
[17:25] <drogon> I guess it might make sense if it was a 'media' laptop? hook up external players, etc... ?
[17:25] <cornflake> yeah some higher end laptops now have hdmi inputs
[17:25] <Gabtendo> yeah it's a higher-end laptop
[17:25] <Gabtendo> but
[17:25] <techsurvivor> are you sure it goes IN ? :) if so I don't see why the rpi wouldn't work on it
[17:25] <Gabtendo> not the question >.>
[17:25] <Gabtendo> I mean
[17:25] <cornflake> it will work fine Gabtendo
[17:25] <Gabtendo> it says "HDMI IN"
[17:25] <cornflake> that's what it's for
[17:25] <cornflake> just do it!
[17:25] <cornflake> it works like that Gabtendo
[17:25] <techsurvivor> do it for great justice

[17:42] <drogon> Craig`, it would work, but it might be a bit 'clunky' - the performance of it as a file server over Ethernet isn't going to be stellar - only one USB bus and some reports that heavy transfers between usb storage and ethernet (also on the USB) cause problems...
[17:43] <Craig`> I see, the main reason they want it is for printing from a laptop as it's not a wireless printer.
[17:43] <booyaa> Craig`: http://elinux.org/R-Pi_NAS this uses samba, prolly be able to expose a CUPS printer as a samba printer too
[17:43] <Craig`> thanks
[17:45] <drogon> Everything is possible with a Linux box... but sometimes you might be better off with one of the little appliances that do it just for simplicitys sake - e.g. a lot of routers now have USB ports for printers or drives...

[18:00] <Craig`> could I use the raspberry pi for recording phone audio? (rj11 to some of the rpi ports and then decode it somehow, i'm a novice in this area)
[18:00] * M3nti0n|off is now known as M3nti0n
[18:00] <chithead> there is no analog input on the rpi
[18:01] <ldiamond> Craig`, you'd need to create an interface (even if there's an analog input)
[18:02] <Craig`> so would interfacing the rpi with my arduino be the best way to go about this?
[18:02] <ldiamond> I dunno about arduino, I made a board myself. If you have an old modem around you can get the audio trans from there.
[18:02] <ziltro2> s/could I/should I/
[18:03] <ldiamond> In the end you'll get an analog audio output
[18:03] <coin3d> what is a good wifi usb stick for the raspberry?
[18:03] <ldiamond> now to put this on the r-pi, just use a a2d.
[18:03] <coin3d> I've got a to-link TL-WN821N here, but it doesn't work (at least not in raspbian)
[18:04] <Craig`> there's a few things I was wanting to do with the rpi, say phone recorder, ethernet data logger etc, would I need other to interface to do tasks like this?

[18:04] <swecide> oh sorry,.. I meant coin3d ;)
[18:05] <ldiamond> Craig`, for phone recorder yes, definitely. A phone line is not electronics friendly.
[18:05] <Lasse^> phone record, and ethernet logging, is too quite difference things..
[18:06] <ldiamond> Craig`, Ethernet data logger, depends if you manage to have your router copy packets to your r-pi
[18:06] <Craig`> Lasse^: sorry i'm just brainstorming at the moment, I don't know how to do either, i'd have to research the area.
[18:06] <ldiamond> then you can code something to log to sd/usb

[18:08] <ldiamond> I personally just pipe it to my PC and open it in Audacity
[18:10] <Craig`> ldiamond: awesome thanks.
[18:11] <ldiamond> though from the digital input on the pi, you'll need to encode the raw data into something. WAV I think is the simplest, but you can use something like ffmpeg to encode to mp3
[18:11] <drogon> use a USB soundcard...
[18:12] <ldiamond> drogon, not sure if it would be any easier.
[18:12] <drogon> ldiamond, it would remoe the whole A/D conversion stage, once you have the audio out of the phone line...
[18:13] <Craig`> that would work
[18:13] <ldiamond> that step is quite straight forward though
[18:13] <Craig`> i'm just thinking of portable things that would be cool
[18:13] <ldiamond> but sure you can do that.
[18:13] <drogon> you could go completely overboard and use an ATA (Analogue Terminal Adapter) to convert the call to SIP, feed it into asterisk and record it via asterisk, but .......
[18:13] <ldiamond> just way more costly
[18:14] <drogon> portable is harder, but not impossible. Trucall is asmall device, but it costs abotu ?100 ... IIRC
[18:14] <Craig`> a compact device that can be used for monitoring calls/activity, it would make me feel like a spy.
[18:14] <ldiamond> that's quite easy to do.
[18:14] <ldiamond> If you want a challenge make one that doesn't require direct connection
[18:14] <ldiamond> i.e. just wraps around the wire to tap it.
[18:15] <Exposure> hmm is it possible to use lcdproc with a lcd connected to gpio on the rpi?
[18:15] <Craig`> that sounds real interesting
[18:15] <Craig`> the thing is though, ldiamond, i'm just starting in electronics so I have no idea how i'd do that type of thing, and I don't want to google it exactly, rather work my way up to that from the ground up.
[18:15] <ldiamond> well, keep it simple then.
[18:16] <Craig`> yeah that's what I'm planning to do, it's just where I start I find the problem.

[18:22] <drogon> ldiamond, there used to be a little pick-up coil that you could sucker onto old telephones to pickup the audio and then recort it into the micrphone input of a tape recorder...
[18:22] <drogon> however for just the wires, I'm not sure you'll get enough emissions to pick up directly.
[18:23] <drogon> in the UK, it's perfectly legal to record a phone call as long as at lease ONE party to the call knows it's being recorded.
[18:23] <ziltro2> Which is of course wrong.
[18:23] <techsurvivor> you can do that in some states here as well

[19:45] <techsurvivor> okay, so I should make that myself :)
[19:45] <gordonDrogon> the bits in the registers aren't next to each other, so by the time you twiddle them to separate them out for one 32-bit write, you might as well set them invidiually.
[19:45] <techsurvivor> heh, i figured
[19:46] <techsurvivor> but i thought I'd ask
[19:46] <j3> hi
[19:46] <j3> i out the latest wheezy for pi on a 2gb sd card
[19:46] <Berry_HK> is wheezy still the fastest distri around? anything can happen in a few days
[19:46] <gordonDrogon> it has separate set and clear registers though, so no need to do the read/modify/write thing.
[19:46] <j3> but the pi wont start
[19:46] <j3> ok and pwr is on, no network
[19:46] <j3> any hints?
[19:46] <gordonDrogon> Berry_HK, the raspbian version of wheezy.
[19:46] <techsurvivor> i need to look at the processor more and see what it's shifting is, does it have a multishift or is it 1 bit per shift operation. that sort of thing
[19:46] <j3> openelec on a 8gb sd just works fine
[19:47] <j3> both sds are listed as compatible
[19:47] <gordonDrogon> it's a barell shifter - any number of shifts in one cycle.
[19:47] <mongrelion> I screwed something /o\ if I ./configure --prefix=/home/foo/bar and then I run make, and then accidentally I sudo make install and then cancel the action with control c, can I delete /home/foo/bar without problems?
[19:47] <gordonDrogon> mongrelion, generally, yes.
[19:47] <mongrelion> too late, I did it /o\
[19:47] <mongrelion> aah, nice :)
[19:49] <Berry_HK> does it make a difference if i take the BerryBoot or the image version?
[19:49] <techsurvivor> mongrelion read up on checkinstall and it will make life a little easier installing and uninstalling
[19:50] <mongrelion> I successfully compiled ruby on the rpi with rbenv \o/
[19:51] <sunkan> Anyone thought about whether it's good or bad to use tmpfs for /tmp in the pi? I guess it's like that now in raspbian since it seems to be the default in wheezy..

[19:52] <raspbelion> ruby 1.9.3p194 (2012-04-20 revision 35410) [armv6l-linux-eabi]
[19:52] <plugwash> sunkan, it all depends on what the software you are using is using /tmp for
[19:53] <plugwash> some software puts tiny temporaries in /tmp these programs will be faster if /tmp is on tmpfs, however other programs store massive things in /tmp which will simply not fit in the Pi's memory
[19:53] <sunkan> plugwash: That is my conclusion too.. As long as you are aware and you don't happen to use programs that store big files there it should be mainly good.
[19:54] <raspbelion> that's true. Last night I left nodejs and ruby compiling, and suddenly the ruby compilation failed and rbenv moved the file to the /tmp folder, fulling it, so nodejs compilation ran out of space and everthing failed :C
[19:54] <gordonDrogon> generally programs ought to honour the TMP environment variable.
[19:54] <gordonDrogon> or use /tmp/ if it's not set.
[19:54] <sunkan> I'm keeping it for now.. Normally don't run out of memory yet anyway..
[19:55] <gordonDrogon> so sometimes I use /var/tmp when /tmp/ is in RAM.

[20:16] <Hodapp> I might be interested in running Android on it, but just as a "look what I can do!" demo and little else >_>
[20:16] <Hodapp> do want to try RISC OS though
[20:17] <ziltro2> I've got RISC OS on an A3020.
[20:17] <hotwings> Hodapp - if you want to try android for the 'look what i can do!' factor, prepare for disappointment
[20:18] <plugwash> the trouble with riscos on modern hardware is the lack of support for 26-bit mode
[20:18] <ziltro2> Can't you simply unplug some bits?
[20:18] <plugwash> there is a guy developing a tool to work arround this by emulating 26-bit code but no indication of when it will be released
[20:18] <ziltro2> Also 26 bits?!
[20:19] <ziltro2> Who thought of that?
[20:19] <plugwash> someone at acorn presumablly
[20:19] <plugwash> at least I think it was 26 bits
[20:19] <trevorman> yeah it was 26 bit
[20:19] <ziltro2> I thought they were 32-bit CPUs?
[20:20] <trevorman> PC + flags wedged into a single 32 bit register
[20:20] <plugwash> note: the data size was always 32-bit afaict so was the memory space for data, it was just the address space for program code that was limited AIUI
[20:20] <Hodapp> hotwings: sadly, a lot of Android has been that way with me.
[20:20] <Hodapp> hotwings: I recently threw my tablet out a window.
[20:20] <mru> 26-bit address space
[20:21] <Hodapp> from the fourth story.
[20:21] <mru> an int was always 32 bits
[20:21] <plugwash> it probablly made a lot of sense at the time, 4GB of ram on anything remotely consumable would have been a laughable idea at the time
[20:21] <plugwash> *anything remotely consumer-orientated
[20:21] <gordonDrogon> 25 years ago, a 26-bit address bus was considered huge...
[20:21] <trevorman> what plugwash said
[20:22] <ziltro2> 4GB hard disks were fairly far away too I should think
[20:22] <trevorman> they changed it in armv3 or something around then and added a compatibility mode but that got taken out
[20:22] <gordonDrogon> My A310 had 256KB of RAM and an early IDE drive - 20MB I think.
[20:22] <gordonDrogon> or was it 1MB of RAM.
[20:23] <Hodapp> I never had any real RISC OS machines.
[20:23] <Hodapp> I am just interested in the fact that the OS is still being developed.
[20:23] <gordonDrogon> I can't recall - I gave it away 10 years ago now - sort of wished I'd hung onto it, but...
[20:23] <gordonDrogon> developed by a small bunch of nutters, er enthusiasts, yes, enthusiasts ;-)
[20:24] <trevorman> DOS is still being developed. Doesn't mean it is something I'd want to run though :D
[20:24] <ziltro2> DOS has its uses. I'm sure. Some anyway.
[20:24] <ziltro2> Anyone porting FreeDOS to ARM? ;)
[20:25] <ziltro2> Probably need to make a BIOS first.
[20:25] <gordonDrogon> so do PDP11's... or they did last time I looked - well, emulators running under DOS talking to the same old hardware running the same old operating systems...
[20:25] <ziltro2> And it might have to be a 32-bit BOIS.
[20:25] * chris_99 (~chris_99@unaffiliated/chris-99/x-3062929) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[20:25] <trevorman> no point in porting it. no existing apps and you'd need to rework it massively anyway since DOS is very closely linked to the x86 architecture
[20:25] <ziltro2> Yes you'd have to re-compile every program. ;)
[20:25] <Berry_HK> gordonDrogon: i would like to install VICE so some N00b help
[20:26] <trevorman> the only niche OS that I'd consider would be Haiku
[20:27] <gordonDrogon> Berry_HK, that's the VIC/Pet emulator?
[20:28] <Berry_HK> yup
[20:29] <Berry_HK> i know that there are some limitations but i would like to give it a go
[20:30] * Hodapp kills ziltro2 and hides the body
[20:30] <gordonDrogon> have you tried to compile it yet?
[20:30] <ziltro2> Hey that's not friendly!
[20:30] <Berry_HK> just a n00b so i need to figure the make stuff out
[20:30] <Hodapp> don't we already have a glorified bootloader?
[20:30] <Hodapp> we don't need DOS :P
[20:31] <Berry_HK> did it before years ago
[20:31] <gordonDrogon> Berry_HK, ok, fetch it: mkdir vice ; cd vice ; wget http://www.zimmers.net/anonftp/pub/cbm/crossplatform/emulators/VICE/vice-2.2.tar.gz
[20:31] <gordonDrogon> Berry_HK, unpack it: zcat vice-2.2.tar.gz | tar xfB -
[20:31] <Berry_HK> ok hold up
[20:31] <gordonDrogon> Berry_HK, cd vice-2.2
[20:31] <gordonDrogon> Berry_HK, ./configure
[20:32] <ziltro2> What's wrong with the idea of ARM DOS???
[20:34] <trevorman> :P
[20:34] <Berry_HK> let me hold that in the queue need to do some other things first sshd etc
[20:34] <ziltro2> As long as it runs COBOL...
[20:35] <gordonDrogon> ziltro2, sudo apt-get install open-cobol
[20:35] <Hodapp> isn't U-Boot close enough?
[20:36] <hotwings> [11:18:30] <Hodapp> hotwings: sadly, a lot of Android has been that way with me. <-- yup. i dunno why some people think android is anything new/better/amazing
[20:36] <trevorman> s/android/ipad/g
[20:37] <Hodapp> trevorman: Probably because the iPad was just about the first marketed tablet that wasn't just a laptop with the keyboard cut off and a stylus added.
[20:37] <hotwings> os != hardware
[20:38] <trevorman> mhm
[20:38] <hotwings> thats something else i dont get.. why people constantly try to compare android with an iphone.. or ipad.
[20:38] <Berry_HK> now what? "0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 32 not upgraded.
[20:38] <Berry_HK> "
[20:39] <gordonDrogon> sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
[20:39] <trevorman> I'm not but thats usually the argument whenever it comes up. iOS/Android sucks! iOS/Android is totally better!
[20:39] <trevorman> I've had multiple iOS devices and Android devices. No real feelings either way. Both have worked well for me.
[20:39] <Berry_HK> gordonDrogon: thanks
[20:40] <trevorman> I even quite like WebOS but on the Touchpad. No clue how well it works on a phone.
[20:40] <Hodapp> hotwings: uh, because Android and iOS devices compete for people's money.
[20:41] <hotwings> ok, let me rephrase... i dont get why people constantly try to compare an os with a piece of hardware
[20:41] <Hodapp> hotwings: because that piece of hardware runs approximately one OS.
[20:41] <hotwings> its like they dont understand theyre not the same thing

[20:43] <hotwings> that doesnt have anything to do with it
[20:43] <Hodapp> hotwings: Yeah, it has quite a lot to do with it because that's what pretty much everyone is going to pay for.
[20:44] <hotwings> no, it has absolutely nothing to do with it. an os and a piece of hardware are apples and oranges. period.

[20:46] <hotwings> since when it calling something what it is, being picky? thats silly
[20:47] <Hodapp> hotwings: I see you mocking me, but I don't see what exactly you are disagreeing with.

[20:49] <trevorman> mentally substitute "iOS" for "iPad" whenever you see it mentioned along with Android.
[20:49] <trevorman> as that is the comparison actually being made
[20:50] <hotwings> i have a better idea.. how about you just say what you actually mean?
[20:50] * raspbelion (~pi@unaffiliated/carlosleon) Quit (Quit: leaving)
[20:50] <trevorman> sure
[20:50] <hotwings> nobody should have to substitute your word for you
[20:50] <Syliss> No kidding
[20:50] <Hodapp> hotwings: Nobody should have to substitute a word for *you* which is what you seem to be asking.
[20:50] <Syliss> Cause there is 3 idevices
[20:51] <Syliss> And a crap-ton of android devices.
[20:51] <dwatkins> or there's iOS and Android, so it depends how you're comparing things, via hardware or software or a combination of them.
[20:52] <Hodapp> I honestly don't see what the issue is here. You're arguing that hypothetical people should speak differently so that when examined under the lens of exact technical correctness it fits slightly better, when what they mean is rather clear.

[20:59] <nid0> no, but what you're doing is.

[21:00] <hotwings> pointing out facts is anal? ....ok
[21:00] <nid0> everyone knows full well that hardware isnt software, but everyone (other than you it seems) also knows that ios is synonymous with ipad/iphone and vice versa, and fully accepts other people's meanings when using the terms in place of each other. its really not hard.
[21:02] <hotwings> nid0 - apparently they dont, including yourself. and btw, nobody said anything about hard.. its more about stupidity, ignorance, or plain laziness -- take your pick

[21:08] <Hodapp> hotwings: It doesn't belong in PM. It doesn't belong anywhere. Knock it off.
[21:09] <nid0> w0m: someone was comparing ios and android, and used the term iphone to refer to ios. apparently, thats a big deal and a major lack of understanding, rather than just a commonly acknowledged synonym
[21:09] <markllama> mranostay: this is kinda the reason they required registered users. It doesn't stop it, but it cuts down some.

[21:15] <markllama> Because he's security paranoid. No facebook. No port forwarding at his router.

[21:16] <Hodapp> yeah, that'll re-establish it

[21:27] <techsurvivor> or just keep up my geek cred and write a c text interface lol
[21:28] <hotwings> techsurvivor - yes. btw, how well an rpi can play a file depends on several factors, starting with the file itself
[21:28] <trevorman> it isn't HW accelerated and last time I tried, XBMC just refused to play them

[21:29] <hotwings> h.264 is decoded in hardware and plays well. mpeg2 has to be decoded in software at this time, and how well it does that is determined by many factors

[21:31] <markllama> Oh I'm sorry alright. Several times a day
[21:31] <Hodapp> :)
[21:31] <markllama> though the 13 yr old is worse.
[21:31] <Hodapp> oh gawd
[21:31] <markllama> PI! Back to PI! (Please!)
[21:31] <Hodapp> 13.14 yr old?

[21:32] <markllama> you know.. close
[21:32] <techsurvivor> 13.14 is pretty accurate age...
[21:32] <markllama> I think older
[21:32] <techsurvivor> down to the hundredths is pretty good, no one is going to complain about knowing their age to that kind of resolution
[21:33] <nid0> its just under 13 and 2 months

[21:33] <Hodapp> what cool stuff can be done with U-Boot?
[21:33] <techsurvivor> easy netboot
[21:33] <nid0> it'd make iscsi boot rather easier
[21:33] <markllama> heh
[21:33] <techsurvivor> poking registers?
[21:34] <Hodapp> Does it give a GRUB-ish shell?
[21:34] <markllama> 13.1369
[21:34] <techsurvivor> turning on and off cache?
[21:34] <hotwings> you can boot with it, and thats pretty cool
[21:34] <markllama> 13 yrs 50 days
[21:34] <trevorman> Hodapp: yeah but with more features
[21:34] <techsurvivor> most places i've worked just used it for netbooting though lol
[21:34] <techsurvivor> the code for uboot is scary, have never seen so many #define

[21:35] <Hodapp> do many folks use it on the RPi?
[21:35] <trevorman> never ever look at redboot then :|
[21:35] <markllama> Yeah I want to put uboot on a pi SD card so I can net boot/PXE install
[21:35] <techsurvivor> they have to though because of all the platforms that it supports I suppose
[21:35] <techsurvivor> pxe would be nice
[21:35] <markllama> what I really want to do is enable hands-off install with serial and DHCP/PXE manipulation.
[21:36] <techsurvivor> i believe they are working on uboot though, so maybe in a month or two :)
[21:37] <trevorman> just need to make a u-boot script
[21:37] <techsurvivor> http://kernelnomicon.org/?p=133 alpha/beta out ?
[21:37] <markllama> nice for a classroom setting. 10-15 RPis with serial linked to a head node, power through an APC switched PDU, network through a couple of Cisco 2950s with flooding to a monitoring port and a monitoring host generating net map graphics for the students.
[21:37] <techsurvivor> might look at this tomorrow
[21:37] <Hodapp> markllama: that's a neat idea.
[21:38] <markllama> DHCP/PXE/TFTP configured via the head node so the students can start with a literally clean (except for uboot) system and turn it into a real network.
[21:38] <Hodapp> markllama: I'd like to try something like that at my hackerspace - we certainly have enough Pis there

[21:43] * PiBot sets mode +v cave
[21:43] <nid0> you could happily enough set each pi to boot over the network via iscsi/nfs
[21:43] <markllama> Just because the students don't have ready physical access doesn't mean the instructor doesn't
[21:43] <nid0> break an os, just wipe the folder/volume and recreate it, would take seconds

[21:44] <mongrelion> anyone else trying to run hubot on raspberry pi?
[21:44] <trevorman> nid0: yeah
[21:44] <markllama> And if you can PXE boot you can select an install of an image over the net to a second partition and set uboot to select it on next boot

[21:44] * PiBot sets mode +v cave
[21:44] <Hodapp> does U-Boot give you something like, for instance, a remote shell?
[21:44] <trevorman> it can do
[21:44] <markllama> I think there might be a "net console" for it.
[21:44] <techsurvivor> i've only ever accessed it over a uart
[21:44] <w0m> PXE would need support from bios; i have to admit i haven't touched Pi bios
[21:44] <markllama> but if you have serial on all of them there's no real need.
[21:45] <Hodapp> just curious, in the event that you have to bounce the RPi remotely and it has a boot issue
[21:45] <jcdutton> Is anyone doing work to get pi running on kernel 3.5.x
[21:45] <techsurvivor> go to server where it's hooked up to serial
[21:45] <markllama> w0m: PXE can be done as a bootstrap step
[21:45] <nid0> w0m theres pxe and theres pxe
[21:45] <trevorman> w0m: you can TFTP a binary image into memory and run it. it is all scriptable
[21:45] <w0m> markllama: would need bootable media then right? as in flash/sd card
[21:45] <markllama> you can implement PXE in software/os that is.

[21:45] <nid0> pxe in x86 terms is built into the bios (no such thing on a pi) but pxe is also just tftp via software
[21:45] <markllama> w0m: yeah, but the SD can have multiple partitions and they can bootstrap.
[21:45] <trevorman> mongrelion: somebody in here was trying to compile node.js which is probably the first step. not sure how far they got.

[21:47] * PiBot sets mode +v bubuz
[21:47] <w0m> i should look into the rpi boot chain, i honestly just copied an sd card image and went; didn't do any of the fun stuff...
[21:47] <markllama> partition 1 contains an image that initializes the NIC, issues DHCP request, applies network values, extracts next-server and filename values (and the PXE values for kernel, initrd and cmdline if you've done it well)
[21:47] <w0m> yea; does pi support multiple boot orders?
[21:47] <markllama> loads filename from nextserver via TFTP, execs it, passing kernel, initrd and cmdline to it.
[21:48] <markllama> Pi doesn't but you can create a bootstrap that does in the first partition
[21:48] * aphadke (~Adium@c-71-198-5-34.hsd1.ca.comcast.net) Quit (Quit: Leaving.)

[21:48] * stefanBA (~stefan@f050092014.adsl.alicedsl.de) Quit (Quit: Verlassend)
[21:48] <markllama> but that file can be anything
[21:48] <markllama> well anything that will execute
[21:48] <w0m> make sense; if student hosed secondary partition; how would you set it to boot first again.. (pause @ startup and do quasi boot menu?)
[21:49] <Hodapp> all my weird-boot-configuration experience is on x86. I need to relearn a bunch of this.
[21:49] <markllama> at worst you image a new SD and stuff it in.
[21:49] <w0m> If i was using Pi's in class; i'd have 30 extra SD cards with clean images for students to use; and NIS/NFS setup for accounts/etc if it needed to be persistant
[21:49] <markllama> and ideally you have a couple of spare pis in each class so when they munch one you can re-point them and let them go ahead while you fix the borked one.
[21:50] <markllama> w0m: that would work ;-)
[21:50] <w0m> don't need to pull pi out of service; just swap sd card
[21:50] <markllama> though I'd probably do LDAP/NFS...
[21:50] <nid0> i'm more a fan of nfs/iscsi boot and just replace the image on the server, away you go
[21:50] <markllama> NIS is so 1985
[21:50] <w0m> ldap requires windows server though doesn't it?
[21:50] <markllama> gack no!
[21:50] <techsurvivor> openldap
[21:51] <markllama> Windows server is a compilaton of Kerberos5, LDAP, DNS.
[21:51] <markllama> well AD is
[21:51] <techsurvivor> i hate active directory, but probably only because I don't understand it :)
[21:51] <mongrelion> trevorman: I was the one trying to compile nodejs, but failed on the attempt. I then installed nodejs from the repositorioes (raspbian) and am now trying to setup hubot + hubot-irc adapter to no avail :/
[21:51] <w0m> i've always associated ldap with windows; as all my unix domains used nis and windows ldap
[21:51] * markllama has to learn how to do remote DNS updates to AD and I'm guessing the updates will be LDAP pushes
[21:51] <trevorman> mongrelion: ohhh. no idea sorry. good luck with it
[21:52] <mongrelion> thanks.
[21:52] <markllama> w0m: convert your unix to use LDAP from your AD and KRB5 from it and you have single domain management.
[21:52] <markllama> it's not trivial, but it's doable.
[21:52] <w0m> nothing I maintain myself
[21:52] * markllama will shoot NIS where it stands given a choice
[21:52] <w0m> though i'm tempted to setup openldap server on my spare pi now and use that for my windows logins...
[21:53] <markllama> its easier to auth unix to AD than the other way around
[21:53] <markllama> way easier
[21:53] <w0m> (not a windows admin, probably need crazy licensing)
[21:53] <w0m> i like the idea of single signon on my machines
[21:54] <markllama> If I were creating a mixed environment from scratch I'd start with an AD server (after investigating Samba-latest to see if it can do it yet)
[21:54] <markllama> The AD tasks (add/remove/update user/machine/role) are way easier to manage on AD than on a cobbled together unix.
[21:55] <markllama> this is assumingI was going to hand user management off to an HR dept and host management to a tier 1/2 IT dept
[21:55] <w0m> hehe; i'd want it so i can wipe my pi without thinking twice and not lose my homedir
[21:56] <markllama> but a Pi would make a perfectly reasonable SOHO LDAP/DNS/DHCP server.
[21:56] <w0m> (s/pi/laptop/etc)
[21:56] <Matt> actually, samba3.x+openldap+smbldaptools works beautifully
[21:56] <Matt> set it up several times
[21:57] <markllama> Matt: good to know. Can your receptionist manage user accounts?
[21:57] <w0m> i already have cifs/nfs server on network that's independant; no problem mounting my unix homedir from it
[21:57] <Matt> that would depend on if the receptionist can cope with typing "smbldap-adduser -a username"

[23:02] <Berry_HK> nice ... but kinda slow
[23:02] <nid0> and some heavy optimisation to make it work promptly
[23:02] <mongrelion> it is a puma server running a sinatra application.
[23:03] <mongrelion> very simple, though. Ain't got too much processing. The articles are rendered on the fly using rdiscount, a markdown parser for ruby.
[23:03] <gordonDrogon> Berry_HK, hi - I think you have no option but to compile it - however I'm wondering if it's missing from Raspbian for a reason - ie. if it depends on something else that's not compiled yet...
