[3:07] <criten> shapr: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=263136 Mighttttt help?
[3:08] <shapr> I currently have this config file: http://hpaste.org/72999 but it won't associate with my WPA-PSK + WPA2-PSK access point.
[3:08] <criten> shapr: I haven't played weith the wifi on the Pi yet.
[3:08] <criten> Pretty sure the psk is the hash, not the password
[3:08] <criten> pasphrase*
[3:08] <shapr> oh, that could be it.
[3:08] <criten> the link i gave showed how to generate it, i think.

[3:47] <trevorman> more like a new version not revision anyway
[3:47] <^robertj> I'm certain it's not even seriously on the radar at this point. They need curriculum for the edu release.

[4:56] <Crenn-NAS> Depends on what you want the WiFi for

[4:56] <home> to lappy
[4:57] <bircoe> I setup my Pi a while back with a USB hard drive and connected via ethernet as a mini NAS, best I could pull off it was about 7MB/s
[4:57] <Crenn-NAS> However, knowning the hardware, unless you used the interrupts for SPI, you'd tie up the CPU
[4:57] <home> bircoe: that's pretty GOOD

[5:05] <bircoe> CPU: Dual-core AMD Athlon II NEO N36L (1.30GHz, 15W)
[5:06] <Crenn-NAS> Also, 7MB/s is fine for streaming most HD media
[5:06] <bircoe> I never said it wasn't... just that it isn't upto the standards I expect from a NAS, which is why it's not being used as a NAS, it was just a test to see what it could manage.

[5:42] <bircoe> got my eye on the ASUS NT-R16... 480mhz CPU, 128mb RAM, 32mb Flash, 2x USB ports and the 4 port switch is gigabit
[5:43] <bircoe> my favourite parts retailer has them for $115
[5:43] <criten> My friend was looking into that... It looks fantastic
[5:43] <M3nti0n> WRT54GL just dies a month ago here :(
[5:43] <bircoe> mines been going for abotu 5 years!
[5:43] <bircoe> had DD-WRT on it almost since I unpacked it.
[5:44] <GirlLuvzerMac> DD-WRT is fantastic...
[5:44] <bircoe> ZIt
[5:44] <bircoe> ...
[5:44] <bircoe> It's no longer being used for Wifi tho, using a pair of AirPort Express's
[5:45] <GirlLuvzerMac> My Airport Extreme is about 5 years old, I've been eying the newest version since it came out...
[5:46] <bircoe> I went with the Express over the Extreme cos the Extreme at the time had no Airplay.
[5:46] <bircoe> Still doesn't by the looks of it
[5:46] <GirlLuvzerMac> That's one thing that frustrates me with Apple? The "gifting" of features to some products when others go without for no sound reason beyond $.
[5:47] <bircoe> Yeah the Extreme vs Express is a great example of that...
[5:47] <GirlLuvzerMac> Have you looked into any of the AirPlay work by Erica Sadun? If you're running a mac there may be some things you could do to work around that.
[5:48] <bircoe> The Express has USB that supports printers, but not USB drives... I bet the hardware can do it, but they want more money for that feature.

[5:48] <GirlLuvzerMac> I'll bet you're right. Not owning an Express, I've never looked into any hacks to enable it, but I'm sure they're out there. I wonder what chips they run off?
[5:49] <bircoe> The Wife's mac and iphone handle the Airplay stuff
[5:49] <bircoe> I'd almost bet money that they are running a Broadcom SOC
[5:49] <bircoe> almost every decent router seems to
[5:49] <GirlLuvzerMac> Hmmmm?..
[5:49] * GirlLuvzerMac googling...
[5:50] <bircoe> Broadcom BCM4712KFB @ 200mhz
[5:50] <bircoe> Should be more than adequate
[5:51] <GirlLuvzerMac> I'm wondering if it's somehow possible to flash the Express with the Extreme's firmware...

[7:57] <Essobi> Oh.. well.. IDK about RPi's but...
[7:58] <Essobi> On most motherboard's that's enforced in the bios. so... hack the bios and you can manipulate the voltages, out of spec.

[9:34] <vrodic> so can any USB hub work for more than two devices at the same time?
[9:35] <vrodic> i can use a webcam and a hard drive, but as soon as i add a keyboard, eth stops working
[9:35] <SLFCore> vrodic: The USB HUB must be powered with the help of AC Adapter also and plugged in to the Pi
[9:35] <vrodic> SLFCore, it is powered
[9:35] <vrodic> 3A
[9:35] <vrodic> 5V
[9:36] <vrodic> it can spin the mechanical 2.5" HD
[9:36] <SLFCore> does it recognize on the Pi?
[9:36] <vrodic> yes
[9:36] <SLFCore> so the problem?
[9:36] <vrodic> but i soon as i connect a third device, eth stops working
[9:36] <SLFCore> Oh
[9:37] <SLFCore> does the same thing happen when you try this out on another computer? (not raspberry Pi)
[9:37] <vrodic> i tried many combinations, using both Pi ports or just one (for the hub)
[9:37] <vrodic> SLFCore, ill have to try, but i'm not near the Pi ATM
[9:37] <vrodic> i guess it will work
[9:37] <vrodic> since this also "works" but makes the eth unusable
[9:37] <SLFCore> try it on a desktop or laptop with the hub powered by AC
[9:38] <SLFCore> can you view your htop?
[9:38] <SLFCore> there maybe more load on the pi
[9:38] <vrodic> SLFCore, can you personally use more than 2 USB devices on the pi?
[9:38] <SLFCore> I have tried 3 usb devices and it worked
[9:38] <SLFCore> no problems so far
[9:38] <vrodic> SLFCore, if yes on what hub and what devices?
[9:39] <vrodic> i suspect that maybe the "chatty" devices break it with any hub
[9:39] <vrodic> i tried to use a webcam, keyboard and a hard drive at the same time
[9:39] <vrodic> i didn't try with mouse, keyboard and a hard drive for example
[9:39] <vrodic> i'll have to try that too
[9:40] <SLFCore> Flash Drive & Mouse > USB HUB > Pi USB 2.0 with Keyboard already plugged in one port
[9:40] <vrodic> SLFCore, thanks i'll have to try that later today too
[9:40] <vrodic> btw its a DUB-H7
[9:40] <vrodic> from Dlink
[9:40] <SLFCore> Which AC adapter are you using for the Pi?
[9:41] <SLFCore> how much mA and V?
[9:41] <vrodic> its been stable with HTC with 1A on 5V
[9:41] <vrodic> with this adapter (usb charger for HTC Desire) it doesn't have power problems
[9:42] <vrodic> the hub itself can't provide enough for XBMC to work it seems

[9:47] <vrodic> 1080P stutters every some seconds
[9:47] <SLFCore> i use omxplayer on one of my Pi with raspbian and 1080 is smooth ONLY when its on Network Shared Drive..
[9:48] <SLFCore> remember SD Card with lesser than Class4 has low read speed
[9:48] <SLFCore> if you are watching a 1080p video off a Class 4 SD Card then it is going to be laggy
[9:49] <SLFCore> and faster SD cards dont work with the Pi
[9:49] <SLFCore> which class SD card do you have?
[9:49] <vrodic> SLFCore, no, this was from a hard drive or through sshfs
[9:49] <vrodic> class 10
[9:49] <vrodic> i'll have to try another video
[9:49] <clever> can you read the class of the sd card from the pi?
[9:49] <clever> or can you only guess it from the performance?
[9:49] <vrodic> its rated class 10 and it seems fast to me
[9:50] <SLFCore> clever: I have never tried reading it from the Pi, you can see it on the SD card itself
[9:50] <vrodic> however, the playback was attempted from the usb 2.0 connected 2.5 hard disk
[9:50] <vrodic> and through sshfs
[9:50] <clever> SLFCore: dont see 'class' writen anywhere, is it hidden in the lasered code?

[10:06] <vrodic> dennistlg, thanks i'll try to find exactly how it fails
[10:06] <clever> only usb problems ive had so far are lost key events
[10:06] <vrodic> my theory is that it's not the hubs fault but the devices themselves, but i'm reluctant to spend more money on another usb hub
[10:07] <Syliss> i know i know. Im so used to ext4 now
[10:07] <dennistlg> but my hub is power supli for the hub can delivery a lot of power

[10:07] <dennistlg> ahhh
[10:08] <vrodic> this one is 3A, and that should be enough
[10:08] <dennistlg> but my hub power supply can delivery 15A+
[10:08] <plugwash> My theory is the host controller is a POS and some device combinations happen to expose the bugs in it while others don't
[10:08] <dennistlg> what device powered from the 3A?
[10:09] <vrodic> the hub
[10:09] <vrodic> :)
[10:09] <vrodic> pi has its own supply
[10:09] <dennistlg> ok
[10:10] <dennistlg> ^^that should be more than enought
[10:10] <Syliss> i wouldn't power the pi with a hub unless the port supplies at least 800mAh. Even then. Only time i will is with the lapdock
[10:10] <vrodic> i'll test more combinations at home i guess and report to forums or the wiki
[10:11] <vrodic> Syliss, yeah, this Dlink 7port doesn't provide enoogh power on it's ports that are marked as charging ports

[11:24] <dennistlg> ah ok
[11:25] <dennistlg> cant help have only wheezy
[11:25] <amkoroew> i know raspmc overclocks to 800MHz not sure about openelec. but i was not overclocking wheezy so i never tested it with 800MHz
[11:26] <sraue> amkoroew, OpenELEC dont overclocks, thats up to the User, not the distro
[11:26] <dennistlg> think you can test it. um auzuschlie?en das es daran liegt. (dont know how to write this in english)
[11:28] <sraue> amkoroew, i think it can be still a PSU issue, Vivanco is not the very best brand, so you cant be sure the output is stable... also because XBMC uses the GPU very much, even if its IDLE, so it needs a bit more power then a standard Linux distro. i use a Samsung PSU for the Galaxy SIII Phone, you can get this for around EUR20.- and this works
[11:29] <amkoroew> dennistlg ok werde es mal testen
[11:32] <chithead> so you have three freezes: first the menu freezes, then ssh freezes and then the clock
[11:32] <amkoroew> yes
[11:32] <chithead> if you can get at dmesg between first and second freeze, that might give a hint what is wrong

[11:35] <chithead> it could also be that either the psu or the rpi is defective

[11:39] <amkoroew> hmm just tried to boot openelec without keyboard. ssh was running then i plugged the keyboard in and shh connection stopped immediatly. should plug and play work?
[11:39] <chithead> ok that points to power supply issues
[11:39] <sraue> amkoroew, this sounds like a power issue
[11:39] <amkoroew> sraue i had wheezy too
[11:39] <chithead> do you have a different keyboard? (one that maybe consumes less power)
[11:39] <sraue> but wheezy works? it uses lesser power normally
[11:40] <amkoroew> wheezy workswith keyboard and mouse connected
[11:40] <sraue> you can also use the keyboard via a powered usb hub
[11:40] <sraue> if the keyboard takes to much
[11:40] <amkoroew> yes that is what i will try next

[13:19] <bertrik> did you see power problems with those sticks on the rpi?
[13:19] <chithead> the openwrt (atheros chipset) work better, even though they lack an fpu
[13:19] <chithead> no power problems, using the 5V/2A psu which came with my ultra cheap china tablet

[13:52] * PiBot sets mode +v bolosaur
[13:52] <SpeedEvil> sure
[13:52] <gordonDrogon> it's not impossible, but quite hard to make Linux run from a read-only environment.
[13:52] <SpeedEvil> or battery back the pi
[13:52] <gordonDrogon> best way to avoid FS corruption is to halt it properly, if possible..
[13:53] <trumee> seems quite a bit of work and not clear instructions, http://www.gentoo-wiki.info/HOWTO_Read-only_root_filesystem
[13:53] <gordonDrogon> but I have to say... in over 18 years of using Linux I've rarly experienced really bad corruption of a server, and I've looked after 1000's of servers in that time.
[13:53] <trumee> how do openwrt achieve this?
[13:53] <chithead> trumee: yes, openwrt does this by putting the system on squashfs, and having a writable overlay
[13:53] <clever> i just use an fs with a journal and nothing can really go wrong

[13:54] * PiBot sets mode +v reider59
[13:54] <gordonDrogon> you can, with care, separate the disk into more partitions - so root, /usr can be read only, and /var read/write.
[13:54] <gordonDrogon> or make sure log-files go into RAM.
[13:54] <trumee> chithead: is that possible with gentoo?
[13:54] <chithead> a journaling fs will ensure that the filesystem is always in consistent state. but not necessarily the data on it
[13:54] <SpeedEvil> clever: you are assuming things which are not true.
[13:54] <gordonDrogon> I build 'embedded' PBXs which run linux entirely in RAM - they do mount the flash device for storage of voicemail, etc. but that's considered volatile if the power gets pulled...
[13:54] <clever> SpeedEvil: such as?
[13:54] <trumee> gordonDrogon: i had a very bad corruption with reiserfs
[13:55] <chithead> trumee: possible, yes. but quite a bit of work, more than just installing openwrt
[13:55] <gordonDrogon> trumee, I've *never* run reiser - never will either. just say no.
[13:55] <SpeedEvil> SD cards do not support write barriers, so journals do not work well.
[13:55] <clever> SpeedEvil: ah
[13:55] <gordonDrogon> I dabbled with xfs once, but got what I felt was really bad support from their mailing lists, do dumped it. it's been ext2, 3 and 4 for me.
[13:55] <chithead> didn't ext3 have barriers disabled anyway to look better in benchmarks?
[13:55] <trumee> chithead: can openwrt run on raspberry pi?
[13:56] <clever> id think as long as you remount /boot ro, it should be fairly bullet proof
[13:56] <chithead> yes, since a month ago or so they have official support in trunk
[13:56] <gordonDrogon> I looked at building a Pi system with my embedded setup - the down-side is that it needs RAM - if the Pi had 512MB of RAM then it would have worked.
[13:56] <SpeedEvil> SD cards internally do stuff not at the behest of the os, and you rely on that code to keep the block device illisin correct.
[13:56] <SpeedEvil> illusion
[13:56] <clever> hmmm, and /boot is mounted sync already, thats about as good
[13:56] <chithead> if you are memory limited rather than cpu, you may want to look at zram/compcache
[13:56] <gordonDrogon> ... /boot can be r/o - jsut change the flags in /etc/fstab.

[13:57] <clever> gordonDrogon: yeah was about to, but i think sync mount is just as good for my needs
[13:57] <SpeedEvil> writing anywhere to the card can damage any fs, if things go wrong

[13:58] <clever> SpeedEvil: due to wear leveling?
[13:58] <SpeedEvil> SD card processors have bugs, and an crash, on corrupted by power fail storage, making the whole dwvce inaccessible
[13:58] <SpeedEvil> can crash
[13:59] <clever> SpeedEvil: what if the SD card power rail had a decent capacitor, and the main CPU shut off a couple of ms before the SD card?
[13:59] <trumee> SpeedEvil: you have painted a very bad picture. i guess openwrt is the way to go then with everything read-only
[13:59] <clever> would the sd card have time to finish its delayed sync before power fully died?
[14:00] <SpeedEvil> it doesn't know when power will die
[14:00] <SpeedEvil> in practice, it may work just fine.
[14:00] <clever> SpeedEvil: yeah, but wont it have a time limit on how long it can delay a write?
[14:00] <SpeedEvil> no.
[14:01] <clever> how do you properly sync the card to flash then, it must atleast have a sync command?
[14:01] <SpeedEvil> there isn't a standard, and it may do housekeeping stuff anytime.
[14:01] <trumee> chithead: does openwrt on raspberry support hardfp?
[14:01] <SpeedEvil> you leave it a couple of seconds after last write, and hope, pretty much.

[14:08] <gordonDrogon> clever, I think the sync mount was an attempt to fix a kernel bug though - there was a very small number of cases where it might corrupt the FS even if you did all the right things - I never personally experienced it, so it might have been some timing thing...

[14:20] <Holden> Hello... question: has anyone measured with an oscilloscope what's the maximum frequency and rise/fall times when doing something like "while(1) {GPIO_SET(4); GPIO_CLR(4);}" on a gpio pin configured as output?
[14:20] <mru> what does the data sheet say?
[14:20] <Berry6510> anyone installed a irc bouncer yet?
[14:21] <Berry6510> i am working in a Raspberry Pirc thingy
[14:21] <Berry6510> really nice
[14:21] <gordonDrogon> ok. pi booted - under battery power.
[14:21] <Holden> mru, was that question for me?
[14:21] <mru> yes
[14:21] <gordonDrogon> Holden, you can get a signal of aobut 20MHz
[14:22] <Berry6510> gordonDrogon: i used a 5000mah battery from A-Solar, it kept the pi running forever
[14:22] <Berry6510> ;-)
[14:22] <Holden> mru, tbh I didn't look for that info in the data sheet... I'll see if I can find it
[14:22] <gordonDrogon> Holden, you can better the rise/fall times by increasing the pad drivers.
[14:22] <Holden> gordonDrogon, oh good, 20MHz is a lot... I was hoping to get 1 MHz
[14:22] <gordonDrogon> Holden, the down side is that it will suffer from a lot of jitter as linux, the gpu, memory, etc. all interrupt the smooth runnings...
[14:23] <gordonDrogon> Holden, you'll struggle to get accurate timing even at 1MHz though.
[14:23] <gordonDrogon> Holden, good enough to clock out a shift register though.
[14:23] <gordonDrogon> Holden, not good enough to drive a 1-wire device IMO.
[14:23] <mru> what do you want to use it for?
[14:24] <Holden> gordonDrogon, well I don't need accurate timings, just sharp rise/fall edges and 20us periods would be enough

[16:02] <gordonDrogon> Hm. battery dropped to 4.5v, Pi crashed.
[16:03] <gordonDrogon> that didn't take very long at all. I suspect my batteries are knackered though - they've been sitting about for 4 years without a charge.
[16:03] <gordonDrogon> lets charge them again...
[16:03] <IT_Sean> yeah... 4.5 is a bit low
[16:03] <timg> knackered
[16:03] <IT_Sean> What kinda battries, and gow long did they last?
[16:03] <timg> who can spot the brit
[16:04] <gordonDrogon> I was somewhat surprised when the charger only took an hour to get them up.
[16:04] <gordonDrogon> they're NiMH's.
[16:04] <gordonDrogon> looks like fairly big ones.
[16:05] <gordonDrogon> spot the brit? Oh, I say! What Ho!
[16:05] <IT_Sean> playing spot the brit in here is a bit pointless. you can't swing a cat by it's tail without hitting one.
[16:05] <gordonDrogon> possibly; Howz it gaun? (from where I'm from)
[16:06] <gordonDrogon> I don't think they say: See you Jimmy? anymore though. I've been out of Scotland for some time...
[16:07] * nx5_off is now known as nx5
[16:07] * IT_Sean switches nx5 off again
[16:08] <gordonDrogon> anyway, I don't particularly want to peel the battery pack apart to find out the cells - there are 9 cells, so I guess 1.2v each to give 10.8v
[16:08] <gordonDrogon> it measured about 11v when charged.
[16:08] <SpeedEvil> That is not charged
[16:08] <IT_Sean> I assume you are you regulating it down to ~5v, aye?
[16:08] <gordonDrogon> the individual cells are bigger than AA's.
[16:08] <SpeedEvil> Expect about 1.5V/cell freshly charged
[16:08] <gordonDrogon> yes, just a simple 7805 for now.
[16:08] <SpeedEvil> 10.8V will be almost flat
[16:09] <SpeedEvil> Also - if you discharge that battery to under 9V, you risk reverse charging cells.
[16:09] <SpeedEvil> Discharged to 4.5V, you certainly have discharged one or more cells, and somewhat damaged it.
[16:09] <SpeedEvil> have reverse charged one or more
[16:10] <gordonDrogon> very probably, but hey - this is a 4-year old unit that I'd previouly used in an underwater torch for several years, so it's costing me nothing.
[16:10] <gordonDrogon> s/4/8/
[16:10] <gordonDrogon> it fed a HID bulb which still works fine. I loved that torch underwater!
[16:10] <SpeedEvil> Try running them through a couple of charge/discharge cycles, they may increase in usable capacity.
[16:11] <SpeedEvil> Stopping at about 9V though
[16:11] <IT_Sean> they might also be permanently screwed.
[16:11] <gordonDrogon> yea, I'll give that a go. I only need it to run for about an hour or less on the day though.
[16:11] <gordonDrogon> I do have a 6-cell AA holder, so I have the option of running out and just getting some AA's.

[16:14] <Simon-> it was originally 12V?
[16:15] <Simon-> I don't think you want to keep using it at a lower voltage just because you've got something that takes a lower voltage...
[16:15] <gordonDrogon> sorry ,what was originally 12V?
[16:15] <Simon-> your 4.5V battery
[16:15] <gordonDrogon> I'm powering a Pi from batteries - just using what I have in the spares box, etc.
[16:15] <gordonDrogon> it was/is 9 x NiMH cells.
[16:16] <shapr> isn't that about 10 volts?
[16:18] <gordonDrogon> well, that's what I though - 9 x 1.2 = 10.8, but others here are saying it's supposed to be more...
[16:18] <gordonDrogon> what do I know, I'm not a NiMH battery export...
[16:18] <shapr> I'm almost certain NiCads give 1.2 volts, I don't know about NiMHs. Are they AAs?
[16:19] <gordonDrogon> slightly bigger than AA's.

[16:22] <SpeedEvil> NiCd/NiMH vary from 0.9 or so 'flat' to 1.6V fresh off high rate charge.
[16:22] <SpeedEvil> 1.45 is typical 'charged and left for a few weeks' voltage
[16:22] <mru> nominal voltage is 1.2V for both types
[16:23] <mru> what you actually get depends on the state of charge, the general condition of the battery, and the load

[16:25] <SpeedEvil> yes, nominal is the average voltage from 100% to 0% charged
[16:26] <SpeedEvil> 1.35 is typical the above should have read.
[16:26] <SpeedEvil> But If a 9 cell pack is measuring 11V just off charge, something is wrong.

[16:27] <gordonDrogon> via a regulator before you get to oexcited.
[16:28] <gordonDrogon> it ran the Pi for a couple of hours before giving up.
[16:28] <gordonDrogon> now I've discovered that the Lego rotation sensor is analog and I have no analog inputs to use. Bother.
[16:29] <mru> SpeedEvil: not if he measured it under load
[16:29] <SpeedEvil> true
[16:29] <gordonDrogon> I measured it off-load after I'd used it to light the light for a few minutes. Then I connected it into the Pi via the regulator, the Pi booted, I was happy.
[16:30] <gordonDrogon> The type of HID in the lamp I have doesn't like being turned on & off quickly, so I'd let it run for a minute or 2.
[16:31] <gordonDrogon> as I said, the batteries are some 6-8 years old - I used it most weekends for 3-4 years then it sat on my shelf for 3-4 years...
[16:31] <gordonDrogon> so it's no great loss to me if they're knackered.
[16:31] <gordonDrogon> all I need it to be is "good enough" to power some demos for 15 miuntes next week. And I can charge them between demos.

[16:45] <Holden> mru, from a quick look, the datasheet (chapter 6, GPIO) doesn't talk about rise/fall times, maximum frequencies, VOH/VOL or typical sink/source currents... but I get very sharp square waves on the oscilloscope, so I think I can go as low as 10us with software delays
[16:46] <mru> are you looking at the software manual or the electrical specifications for the chip?
[16:47] <mru> there are usually two documents for any chip
[16:47] <Holden> this one http://www.raspberrypi.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/BCM2835-ARM-Peripherals.pdf
[16:47] <mru> one describes how to program it and can cover many variants of the same design
[16:48] <mru> the datasheet specifies things like supply voltages and other electrical characteristics that can vary
[16:48] <mru> like you might have a version of the chip rated for a higher clock frequency
[16:48] <mru> or with different characteristics on i/o pins
[16:48] <mru> it's quite possible bcm won't let you have that one of course

[16:50] <SpeedEvil> It's a little beyond the 2 page marketing PDFs. But only a little.
[16:51] <mru> yes, the full reference manual should be about that size

[16:52] <SpeedEvil> It varies what they call it, and is largely unimportant :)
[16:52] <mru> it is very important if you want to attach something to it electrically

[16:54] <clever> it works even with X off
[16:54] <clever> yeah, i just want it to play on the gpu when the gpu can support the codec
[16:55] <clever> and handle windowed playback
[16:55] <SpeedEvil> I think it only supports direct screenpainting.
[16:55] <clever> but if you query X for the location on the screen, you can then order the GPU to directly paint to just that area

[17:37] <gordonDrogon> Holden, the limit really is 16mA ...
[17:38] <Holden> 30uA*
[17:38] <gordonDrogon> ok!
[17:39] * aykut (~aykut@unaffiliated/aykut) Quit (Ping timeout: 276 seconds)
[17:39] <Holden> and yes, but as that document explain, it might not be safe to source that much current from several i/o pins, because the 3.3V regulator wasn't designed to supply all that current

[17:40] <dennistlg> anyone testet switching of 10+ gpio pins (output) fast on off? how fast all together can work?
[17:41] <gordonDrogon> Holden, yes - that's an issue, however I have driven 17 LEDs at about 10mA each... not saying that's in the specs, but it worked...
[17:41] <gordonDrogon> switching them on/off concurrently is tricky, but not impossible - you need to poke a 32-bit value to the set/clear register directly.
[17:42] <Holden> gordonDrogon, did you toucht the 3.3V regulator or measure its temperature under that load?
[17:42] <Hodapp> dennistlg: you get get to 10-20 MHz in user land, I believe.
[17:42] <gordonDrogon> Holden, no - I didn't actually consider it at the time...
[17:42] <Hodapp> dennistlg: see Code and Life - Benchmarking Raspberry Pi GPIO Speed
[17:42] <Hodapp> ugh
[17:42] <gordonDrogon> Holden, I have a Pi with 12LEds on it - might connect that up in a bit and check...
[17:42] <dennistlg> do you have a link?
[17:42] <Holden> gordonDrogon, you might have burned your finger if you did :D
[17:42] <Hodapp> er, see http://codeandlife.com/2012/07/03/benchmarking-raspberry-pi-gpio-speed/
[17:42] <Hodapp> it copied link text by mistake
[17:43] <dennistlg> thx!

[17:44] <Hodapp> I hope to get a chance to hack around on my bit-banged SPI for the ShiftBrite in a few hours here
[17:44] <Hodapp> it's partially working
[17:44] <gordonDrogon> but you have no hope whateosever of accurate timing at those speeds from user-land...
[17:45] <clever> gordonDrogon: your best bet would be a kernel timer and a custom ioctl to schedule when the state change should happen
[17:45] <Hodapp> what's involved in a custom ioctl?
[17:45] <clever> but even that would have some latency/jitter
[17:45] * SgrA (~sgra@unaffiliated/sgra) has joined #raspberrypi
[17:45] * PiBot sets mode +v SgrA
[17:46] <clever> Hodapp: usualy just a custom character device node with the ioctl function filled in
[17:46] <dennistlg> ok think thats fast enought to switch the flip flops on 13 gpio pins for my led cube
[17:46] <clever> Hodapp: every character device has a function pointer structure to define how to handle each syscall (close, read, write, seek, ioctl)
[17:46] <gordonDrogon> clever, sure, but I'm really not intersted in trying to use the Pi as a proper real-time controller - it's just not going to work that well - good for demonstrating principles, but use someting designed for that in the real-world.
[17:46] <clever> gordonDrogon: yeah, would be better to hardware SPI to a uC that then does the real timing
[17:47] <Hodapp> clever: but you have to venture into kernel space to make a custom one, don't you?
[17:47] <gordonDrogon> clever, and use the Pi as an overall top-level control type of thing.
[17:47] <clever> Hodapp: yep
[17:47] <clever> Hodapp: google for 'LDD3'
[17:47] <gordonDrogon> there is a lot we can do on the Pi though - I was quite impressed with my multiplexed LEDs - but even those suffer from the very occasional flicker when driven in high priority/real-time mode.
[17:48] <dennistlg> i know i can use a atmega but thats not funny ^^
[17:48] <dennistlg> think should work well enought with pi
[17:48] <gordonDrogon> https://projects.drogon.net/7-segment-led-display-for-the-raspberry-pi/
[17:48] <Hodapp> might be interesting though to make an environment to kind of treat the RPi like an Arduino... minimal/no OS, mainly microcontroller functionality
[17:48] <Hodapp> kind of defeats a lot of it, but it's cheap.

[17:49] <clever> Hodapp: not sure where, but i found the whole book in PDF
[17:49] <clever> hardest part would be getting the .config for the running kernel, *looks*
[17:50] <clever> ah, perfect, /proc/config.gz
[17:50] <clever> now i just need the source, *looks*
[17:51] <clever> Hodapp: if the .config and source match within a certain range, then the modules will be binary compatible, and you wont need to rebuild the kernel
[17:51] <clever> so you can leave the kernel as-is
[17:52] <clever> and the kernel will probly never auto-load your module (enless you claim to handle a pci device or usb device maybe)

[17:59] <Hodapp> I need "SPI", not SPI.
[17:59] <clever> ?
[18:00] <Hodapp> It's SPI plus a latch line that I need to be able to toggle in between clock pulses.

[18:01] <Hodapp> and then I have no hope of being able to do this faster than a clock pulse.
[18:01] <clever> but does it de-activate the line when its done transmiting, or between bytes?

[19:28] <dennistlg> gordon do you have csi dsi things working?
[19:28] <gordonDrogon> eh? sounds like a TV program ...
[19:28] <gordonDrogon> i2c & spi ?
[19:28] <Alt_of_Ctrl> a guy using the rpi on control
[19:28] <Alt_of_Ctrl> he build a printer
[19:28] <Alt_of_Ctrl> lol
[19:29] <gordonDrogon> a printer - creative...
[19:29] <dennistlg> no the camera and display header (mipi dsi display csi cam)

[19:29] <Alt_of_Ctrl> 8:50
[19:30] <gordonDrogon> oh those. no - the camera will be released - Gert is working on the interface & the foundation on the software.
[19:30] <gordonDrogon> I'm not aware of anything for the display interface though.
[19:30] <jaxdahl> looks like theo lympisc are all done
[19:30] <jaxdahl> er, wrong channel
[19:30] <Alt_of_Ctrl> anyone with a gertboard already?
[19:30] <Alt_of_Ctrl> gertboard is amazing
[19:31] <dr_summer> is there an irc channel specifically for arch on raspberry pi?
[19:31] <Alt_of_Ctrl> arch linux?
[19:31] <dr_summer> yeah
[19:31] <gordonDrogon> I have a gertboard...
[19:31] <Alt_of_Ctrl> i think not
[19:31] <dr_summer> having a heck of a time getting my wireless adapter working
[19:31] <Alt_of_Ctrl> i'm using armedslack
[19:31] <Alt_of_Ctrl> and i'm here
[19:31] <Alt_of_Ctrl> lol
[19:31] <gordonDrogon> I've had a gertboard for a couple of months now...
[19:31] <Alt_of_Ctrl> i have a asus wirelss usb adpter
[19:32] <gordonDrogon> not really been able to put it to much use other than get the ATmega going on it.
[19:32] <gordonDrogon> which is what I got it for..
[19:32] <Alt_of_Ctrl> i will try to make it work today
[19:32] <Alt_of_Ctrl> gordonDrogon: do u assamble it?
[19:32] <gordonDrogon> Alt_of_Ctrl, no - gert sent it to me ready built...
[19:32] <Alt_of_Ctrl> lol
[19:32] <Alt_of_Ctrl> :P
[19:33] <Alt_of_Ctrl> true?
[19:33] <gordonDrogon> http://unicorn.drogon.net/gertfan.jpg
[19:33] <Alt_of_Ctrl> nice one
[19:33] <Alt_of_Ctrl> it controls a lego fan
[19:33] <gordonDrogon> it does.
[19:34] <gordonDrogon> or did - I've since pulled the fan apart.
[19:34] <Alt_of_Ctrl> but it does speed control?
[19:34] <gordonDrogon> the ATmega is reading the LM35 temp. sensor and the Pi controls the Fan speed via the PWM output.
[19:34] <Alt_of_Ctrl> ok
[19:34] <gordonDrogon> the program on the Pi is written in BASIC.
[19:34] <Alt_of_Ctrl> BASIC?
[19:34] <gordonDrogon> yes. want to see it?
[19:34] <Alt_of_Ctrl> lol
[19:35] <Alt_of_Ctrl> BASIC? why BASIC?
[19:35] <gordonDrogon> because it annoys people.
[19:35] <gordonDrogon> and it's perfectly capable.
[19:35] <gordonDrogon> and because I wrote my own BASIC interpreter.

[19:50] <dr_summer> easier to read config options
[19:50] <Alt_of_Ctrl> i had a crazy and maybe stupid and useless ideia
[19:50] <Alt_of_Ctrl> make a seedbox wiht rpi

[20:14] <Gaddel> hi, i just got my pi a few days ago. i was wondering if anyone could explain to me the requirements for what i can connect to the GPIO pins?
[20:15] <Gaddel> as well as the requirements for a battery pack

[20:15] <Gaddel> to my understanding the battery pack needs to output 5V, though i'm a bit confused about other peripherals

[20:18] <jcdutton> Gaddel, it must be exactly 5V, the PI does not have much in the way of overvoltage protection.

[20:20] <Gaddel> i also want to try and hook things up like a few LEDs or a single pushbutton, without buying a gertboard or other board. i'm pretty good with computers but don't know much about electronics
[20:20] <Gaddel> are there any specific requirements something like an LED or button must have?
[20:20] <Ryanteck> Sounds fixed thanks jcdutton
[20:20] <Happy0> familiar times
[20:20] <Ryanteck> I tought that the new distro fixed having to do that :L

[20:21] <criten> gordonDrogon: Do you have any experiance with joysticks and linux?
[20:22] <jcdutton> Gaddel, you will need a LED driving transistor. I don't think the GPIOs can supply much current

[20:23] <Gaddel> jcdutton: to my understanding the GPIO can supply 3.3V right?
[20:23] <jcdutton> Ryanteck, they should probably use a enum alsamixer element instead of a int value, and make them appear in alsamixer.

[20:24] <kuhno> yes, but only very limited current
[20:24] <criten> gordonDrogon, haha very cool
[20:25] <kuhno> i heard you could also run the pi with 3,3v power supply only, 5v is only needed by usb

[20:26] <kuhno> i will try that by attaching a 3,3v supply to gpio 3,3v pin
[20:28] <Gaddel> also, is a ribbon cable needed to connect anything to the pins? is it possible for something to be only connected to a few of the pins?
[20:28] <criten> Gaddel: yea, you can just get the pin sockets.
[20:28] <Gaddel> ok
[20:28] <trevorman> kuhno: no
[20:29] <gordonDrogon> Gaddel, kuhno I suggest you stop now before you kill your Pi... really... just "thinking" that it will run at 3.3 and not needing 5, etc. is really not good.
[20:29] <gordonDrogon> but by all means try it, but you'll find that it does need the 5v too.
[20:29] <trevorman> 5V is needed for the SoC and the USB/NIC chip
[20:29] <buZz> DONT feed it 3.3v
[20:29] <Gaddel> gordonDrogon: yeah i plan on sticking with the 5V power supply
[20:29] <buZz> really DONT
[20:29] <IT_Sean> aye, do NOT put 3.3v in via the GPIO
[20:29] <IT_Sean> you will kill the pi
[20:29] <Gaddel> gordonDrogon: i'm just trying to figure out how to work the GPIOs
[20:29] <IT_Sean> you CAN feed in the 5v. The Pi derives the 3.3v rail from the 5v
[20:30] <Gaddel> i'm just wondering about how to power other things like an LED
[20:30] <kuhno> yes, i wont try it now, first understand the scheme
[20:30] <gordonDrogon> Gaddel, start here: https://projects.drogon.net/raspberry-pi/gpio-examples/tux-crossing/

[20:33] <gordonDrogon> Gaddel, if you are very careful, yes, but the tricky part is connecting the LEDs to the GPIO pins - one mistake and you can short 5v to 3.3v and it's bye bye my raspberry pi...
[20:34] <Gaddel> gordonDrogon: i'm kind of new to electronics stuff. do you mean unintentionally sending 3.3v in through the pin?
[20:34] <Gaddel> by "shorting"
[20:35] <criten> shorting is just making a connection between to spots
[20:35] <IT_Sean> he means that if you accidentally cross the 3.3v and 5v pins, Pi goes POOF
[20:35] <Gaddel> ahhh ok
[20:35] <Gaddel> how does that hapen exactly?
[20:36] <criten> accidently haha
[20:36] <IT_Sean> whadda mean?
[20:36] <Gaddel> if i set it up right that shouldn't happen, right?
[20:36] <criten> When you don't label stuff correctly.. haha
[20:36] <IT_Sean> if you connect between 3.3v and 5v, you kill hte pi.
[20:36] <Gaddel> right
[20:36] <IT_Sean> 3.3v stuff does NOT like being fed 5v
[20:36] <criten> just be carefull and you'll be fine
[20:36] <criten> Think before you do something : ]
[20:36] <Gaddel> ok. just so long as i match the voltage of the peripheral to the voltage of the pin it should be ok, right?
[20:37] <Gaddel> do i have to worry about other things, like resistors? (i don't quite know the purpose of resistors)
[20:37] <gordonDrogon> Gaddel, unintentionally sending 5v into the 3.3v pin - that'll kill the Pi - the power pins are right next to each other on the connector.
[20:37] <Gaddel> got it
[20:37] <criten> Gaddel, resisters with LEDs are to limmit the current, it is recomended : ]

[20:38] <gordonDrogon> Gaddel, see this: https://projects.drogon.net/raspberry-pi/wiringpi/pins/
[20:38] <gordonDrogon> note the 3.3v and 5v are next to each other - also note the pin marked DNC (do not connected) under the 5V pin... that's also connected to the 5V supply - right next to the ground pin under it ...

[20:39] <criten> To calculate the correct resistance value you can use this website. http://led.linear1.org/1led.wiz/
[20:39] <Gaddel> what might happen if i don't use a resistor?
[20:39] <criten> Gaddel: Probably end up burning out the LED
[20:40] <Gaddel> ok. so the point of a resistor is so that the pi doesn't send too much current to the LED?
[20:40] <criten> Pretty much
[20:40] <Gaddel> alright, thanks
[20:40] <criten> It's a current limiting resistor
[20:42] <kuhno> gordonDrogon: P1-04 is giving 5V too? I wouldnt need to buy new connectors if i can use pin 4 :)

[20:58] <criten> Raspbian
[20:58] <trevorman> Essobi: don't see why it wouldn't work. you'd need to use one of the GPIOs to control the transceiver though
[20:58] <Essobi> trevorman: right..
[20:58] <trevorman> in theory you can get the handshaking lines reassigned to specific pins in the expansion header but nobody has done so yet so you're on your own if you want the kernel driver to do it automatically
[20:59] <Essobi> trevorman: Most are 9-bit... I'd have to finagle something I think...
[20:59] <trevorman> look in the bcm2835 peripherals datasheet
[20:59] <Essobi> roger that
[21:00] <trevorman> if you want 9 bit then the mini UART is out as that only does 7 or 8. not sure what one is actually conencted to those serial pins on the expansion header

[21:07] <Essobi> not yet anyways
[21:07] <Essobi> :D
[21:07] <trevorman> if you're measuring output of the PSU directly with nothing connected then you want 4.9V minimum and a maximum of 5.3V

[21:34] <Ryanteck> Overvolt and running it from my computers USB slots. I should be shamed?
[21:34] <Alt_of_Ctrl> usb computer slots
[21:34] <Ryanteck> Badd me
[21:34] <dennistlg> have runing from usb to before i build my dc dc converter
[21:35] <Alt_of_Ctrl> can't deliver enought current
[21:35] <Ryanteck> Mine can ^^
[21:35] <dennistlg> pi wifi and logitech keybord mouse receiver was working from usb
[21:35] <Alt_of_Ctrl> or should't be
[21:35] <Ryanteck> Meh
[21:35] <dennistlg> should't be
[21:35] <dennistlg> but do
[21:35] <Ryanteck> All motherboards now try to sell the fact that they can charge mobile phones
[21:36] <dennistlg> anyway it is risky for the usb circuit in pc or laptop
[21:36] <Ryanteck> oops
[21:36] <clever> my laptop bearly charges my ipod, it will randomly (after a while) claim charging is not supported
[21:36] <clever> but goes back to charging if i reconnect
[21:36] <Ryanteck> well i can't find my charger
[21:37] <dennistlg> first usb ports on p1 maschines straight connected to powersupply 5v
[21:37] <Ryanteck> Thats good?
[21:38] <Ryanteck> Im too young to know what P1 machines were like xD
[21:38] <Ryanteck> I think my first computer was a AMD athalon 2.4 ghz
[21:38] <Ryanteck> with 1gb of mem
[21:38] <dennistlg> pentium 1 66-233mhz
[21:38] <clever> my P2 was only 400mhz
[21:38] <Ryanteck> My current is a 6 core :2
[21:38] <dennistlg> our pi has more power :-D
[21:38] <Ryanteck> :3*
[21:39] <Ryanteck> I saw someone posted on the RPI forums
[21:39] <Ryanteck> tape two pi together and call it a 1.4ghz computer
[21:39] <jcdutton> Essobi, what speed are industrial automation? Could 9 bits be done with bit bashing?
[21:39] <dennistlg> my first was an schneider system dont know cpu or modell number but think it was 286 or older
[21:40] <Ryanteck> 0.o
[21:40] <Ryanteck> I loved my first computer
[21:40] <dennistlg> under 10mhz i think
[21:40] <Ryanteck> Blame it for making me an addict today :3

[21:41] <Ryanteck> hmm
[21:42] <Ryanteck> It would be cool if you could just cluster linux
[21:42] <trevorman> Ryanteck: the rpi is already technically a 1.2GHz device if you're following the logic of taping two of them together. it has two VideoCore processor cores
[21:42] <Ryanteck> Oh yeh
[21:42] <Ryanteck> apparently all cores add upto 8ghz
[21:42] <trevorman> you can and have been able to for many years. not worth doing it with the rpi though
[21:43] <Ryanteck> and awh :(
[21:43] <Ryanteck> I got a pi hoping to do some cluster project
[21:43] <Ryanteck> was thinking about running a webserver over them
[21:43] * IT_Sean (~sean@applefritter/IRCStaff/UltimateMacUser1) Quit (Quit: Off)
[21:43] <trevorman> idk about 8GHz. Broadcom say that there are two VC coprocessors and we run them at 250MHz. If you're adding up all the other parts in the GPU you might get that 8GHz.
[21:44] <trevorman> you can do it. it just isn't economical to do so.
[21:44] <Ryanteck> Sigh
[21:44] <Ryanteck> Hmm
[21:44] <Ryanteck> Whats the maximum overvolt level?
[21:44] <trevorman> it won't appear as a single system so you'd have many webservers and you'd need a load balancer in front of them all
[21:44] <Ryanteck> I overvolted mine to 6
[21:44] <[SLB]> 8 i think
[21:44] <dennistlg> http://www.computermuseum-ebenthal.at/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=126&Itemid=132
[21:45] <Ryanteck> Hoping to try and get 1.2 ghz one time
[21:45] <trevorman> 8 according to the elinux wiki but that is more of a "well they only give examples up to this range so don't go over. we don't know what will happen"

[22:11] <kn1000> Berry6510, I was running Irssi for a while

[22:12] <Berry6510> is that a bouncer too?

[23:23] <r0cky> trevorman, pulldown?
[23:23] <trevorman> its floating as you've not got an external pullup/down and the SoC isn't doing it either

[23:26] <trevorman> if you don't have a pull up or pull down resistor then the value on the pin is undefined. it can swing either way from interference or you adding that extra bit of wire. the pull up or down resistor will force it to a defined state unless something is actively driving it.

[23:34] <plugwash> maybe it's just me but openwrt on the Pi doesn't really appeal

[23:35] <plugwash> the Pi won't make a good router and for non-router uses why would you want to use a distro that has been gimped to fit tiny flash chips when storage is not at a premium
[23:37] <Alt_of_Ctrl> [SLB]: the X is not hardware acellareted yet
[23:38] <r0cky> trevorman, Sorry for being such a noob. I don't understand the example
[23:38] <[SLB]> right Alt_of_Ctrl, but then i don't get the guide to compile xbmc, lets you compile it all and succesfully, and then we can't use xbmc because X is not accelerated?
[23:38] <RoTorIT> hey.. can anyone tell me how to change the keyboard layout to Norwegian in the RPI? uasing raspberian
[23:39] <RoTorIT> using*
[23:39] <[SLB]> RoTorIT, try sudo dpkg-reconfigure keyboard-configuration
[23:40] <trumee> plugwash: for my usecase openwrt is best. I need to use RPi in a place with lot of power cuts. So i need readonly model of openwrt
[23:41] <RoTorIT> [SLB]: cool.. thanks
[23:41] <[SLB]> yw
