[0:26] <dennistlg> nice litle thing :-D Hope it arrives fast :-) http://www.tamadevice.co.jp/pdf/mc/rtc/RV-3029-C2.pdf
[0:26] * curahack (~curahack@sub-210ip164.rev.onenet.an) Quit (Quit: Leaving.)
[0:26] <gordonDrogon> dennistlg, hi...
[0:26] <Gaddel> does anyone have any recommendations fo ra good 5V battery pack?
[0:26] <Gaddel> for*
[0:27] * curahack (~curahack@sub-210ip164.rev.onenet.an) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:27] * PiBot sets mode +v curahack
[0:27] <clever> Gaddel: ive seen it mentioned on the wiki that you can just use 4 AA's, but havent tried it myself
[0:27] <Gaddel> clever: er, do they provide exactly 5V?
[0:27] <clever> and thats 1volt over the limit, not sure how the pi would handle it
[0:28] <clever> 4 AA's would be ~6v
[0:28] <Gaddel> in that case i'd probably rather not. don't want to have mess with them further.
[0:28] <Gaddel> i know there are lots of 5V packs available online. hundreds of different ones
[0:28] <clever> i suspect the 5v zener would dump the extra power as heat, but not sure how much extra it can handle
[0:28] <dennistlg> hi gordon have you seen the little i2c clock?
[0:28] <dennistlg> ;-)
[0:29] <gordonDrogon> seen several - which oneare you on about?
[0:29] <dennistlg> http://www.tamadevice.co.jp/pdf/mc/rtc/RV-3029-C2.pdf
[0:29] <dennistlg> ordered like to play with :-D
[0:29] <gordonDrogon> ok.
[0:29] <gordonDrogon> You need to add a battery to it.
[0:30] <dennistlg> yes as backup^^
[0:30] <gordonDrogon> I'm currently powering a Pi with 6 AA's ... via a 5V regulator though.
[0:30] <dennistlg> crc2032
[0:31] * curahack (~curahack@sub-210ip164.rev.onenet.an) has left #raspberrypi
[0:31] <dennistlg> or a little other 3v type

[0:36] * zabomber (~zabomber@gateway/tor-sasl/zabomber) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[0:37] <mrdragons> Found this on hackaday a while back, I'm not too sure I want to try it though, heh: http://hackaday.com/category/cellphones-hacks/page/4/
[0:37] <reider59> coupla sticks of dynamite and you're away ;-)
[0:39] <dennistlg> Gordon its a lot bigger have no temp sensor and coast more ;-)
[0:39] * ka6sox is now known as ka6sox-farfarawa
[0:39] <clever> would it be safe to power the pi via the 5v rail on the GPIO header?
[0:40] * hugorodrigues (~anonymous@a213-22-162-107.cpe.netcabo.pt) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:40] * PiBot sets mode +v hugorodrigues
[0:41] <clever> that 5v rail is after the polyfuse, so its not protected
[0:42] * zabomber (~zabomber@gateway/tor-sasl/zabomber) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:42] * PiBot sets mode +v zabomber
[0:42] <mrdragons> Hmm, might be good if I posted the right link: http://hackaday.com/2011/10/29/cellphone-battery-booster-built-at-the-checkout-counter/
[0:42] <trevorman> clever: if you're careful it'll be fine
[0:43] <clever> hmm, i also wonder how long it could run from a couple super-caps
[0:43] <clever> though probly not long enough for a clean shutdown
[0:44] * oco (~chatzilla@AClermont-Ferrand-651-1-231-183.w86-209.abo.wanadoo.fr) Quit (Quit: ChatZilla 0.9.88.2 [Firefox 14.0.1/20120713134347])
[0:45] <nx5> hi
[0:45] <nx5> what speeds do you guys get with class 10 sdhc cards on the raspberry pi?
[0:45] <dennistlg> gordon the clock ic coast 3,6? in germany
[0:45] * Gaddel (~h@unaffiliated/gaddel) Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[0:45] <clever> and just charging those caps would probly overload the psu
[0:45] * aphadke (~Adium@c-71-198-5-34.hsd1.ca.comcast.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:45] * PiBot sets mode +v aphadke
[0:45] <trevorman> clever: doubt it'd be long. voltage drops sharply when you discharge one
[0:46] <clever> trevorman: ive managed to run an avr project with xbee for ~5-10mins before
[0:46] <clever> longer if i used sleep modes properly
[0:46] <trevorman> yeah but you're not sucking several hundred mA out of it
[0:46] <clever> but the pi does take a lot more current
[0:46] <trevorman> the RPi will
[0:46] <trevorman> the acceptable voltage range for an AVR is bigger as well
[0:46] <chithead> nx5: see http://elinux.org/RPi_Performance near the bottom what kind of performance to expect
[0:47] <clever> yeah
[0:47] <clever> it started around 5 and the xbee didnt cut out till below 3.3
[0:47] <nx5> thx
[0:47] <trevorman> the bcm2835 was designed to be used in portable video players
[0:47] <trevorman> there are actually connections for a battery on there
[0:48] <clever> internal boost converter?
[0:49] <trevorman> not sure. you can see it on the schematic
[0:49] <chithead> it appears to me that the bcm2835 was designed for set-top-boxes and video conferencing
[0:49] <trevorman> chithead: they say mobile as well
[0:49] <trevorman> "The BCM2835 is a cost-optimized, full HD, multimedia applications processor for advanced mobile and embedded applications that require the highest levels of multimedia performance."
[0:49] <chithead> mobile as in portable maybe ;)
[0:50] <trevorman> look at page 1 of the schematic. the SMPS block. it has 5V connected to VDD_BATx
[0:50] <clever> trevorman: yep, first page, SMPS section
[0:50] <clever> and also look at VDD_OUT and VDD_CORE
[0:51] * NirIzr (~NirIzr@93-172-137-94.bb.netvision.net.il) Quit (Ping timeout: 246 seconds)
[0:51] <clever> the core isnt powered by anything
[0:51] <clever> its got an internal regulator for the core voltages
[0:51] <clever> with an external inductor and filter cap
[0:52] <mongrelion> anybody else using xbian?
[0:52] <mongrelion> booyaa: booh!
[0:52] <clever> trevorman: VDD_FB is probly the sense pin, for self regulation
[0:53] <clever> this is probly related to over-volting too, the exact voltage is set by software
[0:53] <trevorman> yeah
[0:53] <clever> and the 3.3v rail is just used by some external facing buffers, on every pin
[0:54] * virunga (~virunga@151.64.13.27) Quit (Quit: Sto andando via)
[0:54] * FR^2 (~fr@krlh-5f71ecde.pool.mediaWays.net) Quit (Quit: und weg...)
[0:54] <Tenchworks> Although this might be offtopic, I figured the crowd in here might find this interesting: http://bentilly.blogspot.sg/2010/08/analysis-vs-algebra-predicts-eating.html?m=1
[0:54] <clever> 90% of the internals probly runs on that core voltage, set by config.txt
[0:55] * kcj (~casey@unaffiliated/kcj) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:55] * PiBot sets mode +v kcj
[0:55] <clever> trevorman: SDRAM_VDD is the same
[0:55] * kkimlabs (~kkimlabs@cpe-24-90-68-199.nyc.res.rr.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:55] * PiBot sets mode +v kkimlabs
[0:56] <plugwash> the trouble with the Pi is that while the switcher providing the core voltage supply has a pretty wide input range the regulators for the ancilaries don't
[0:56] * kkimlabs (~kkimlabs@cpe-24-90-68-199.nyc.res.rr.com) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[0:56] * NirIzr (~NirIzr@93-172-240-207.bb.netvision.net.il) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:56] * PiBot sets mode +v NirIzr
[0:57] <plugwash> in particular the reg for the 3.3V rail has a pretty high dropout voltage, so the input voltage doesn't need to drop much before it starts impacting the 3.3V rail and that makes the ethernet flaky
[0:57] <clever> plugwash: from what i can see, other then the 5v rail (and VDD_BAT on the cpu), everything is powered thru that first 3.3v regulator
[0:58] * ennisa (alanennis@188.141.75.104) has left #raspberrypi
[0:58] <plugwash> pretty much and if that first 3.3V reg was an ultra low dropout device you could probablly go down to 4V or so with no problems
[0:58] <clever> except for the usb specs
[0:58] <clever> the usb ports are connected directly to the 5v rail and usb spec says +/-10% i think
[0:58] <clever> so 4.5v min, 5.5v max
[0:59] <plugwash> but at least the part number given on the schematic is NOT an ultra low dropout device, it has a specified dropout voltage of over a volt
[0:59] <clever> so at 4.3v the 3.3v rail will suffer
[0:59] <clever> at which point, your already out of spec for the usb slaves
[1:00] <plugwash> true, I was just considering the stuff on the Pi itself, the external USB connections are in an even worse position due to the stupid low value polyswitches
[1:00] <clever> id think it would also be safer to power it thru a usb output
[1:01] <clever> since they have their own dedicated polyfuse's
[1:01] <plugwash> which could easilly push the voltage to the USB ports out of spec even if the main 5V rail is at 5.0V

[1:11] <plugwash> hmm you bought a Pi on ebay?
[1:11] <reider59> and a T shirt yes
[1:11] <plugwash> ahh you wanted the farnell T-shirt....
[1:11] <reider59> Both allegedly sealed
[1:13] * plugwash would like a Pi T shirt but i'd rather wait for the foundation to release their own one
[1:13] <plugwash> rather than walking arround with "element14" on my T shirt
[1:13] * Crenn-NAS is still wondering how the firetruck you get one of those shirts
[1:14] <trevorman> it was a special offer from farnell for one of the early batches. put some code into the comments and they'd send you one.
[1:15] <reider59> yes I only wanted the XL t shirt, failed on a first bid cos it asked for the password and then it was gone. The other T shirts were medium and one came up XL and a Pi so I thought I'd get the second one I turned down. If the bid failed I'd go for a T shirt that came up after it. As it was the T shirt on its own only went for ?2 and postage
[1:15] <Crenn-NAS> AH
[1:15] <dennistlg> wow my sd performs good better than i think before bench
[1:16] <dennistlg> write 6,8MB/s read 20,8MB/s
[1:16] <mranostay> what is this about shirts?
[1:16] <dennistlg> 4gb microSDHC vendor i dont know
[1:17] <reider59> Theres one on sale now, 5 days and 14 hours to go, large size and up to ?3 so far.

[1:45] <Gabtendo> can a raspberry pi handle 1080i mpeg2 video?
[1:45] <Gabtendo> raw
[1:46] <Gabtendo> I ask because if it can I can hook up my usb tv tuner to my raspberry pi and hopefully end up with live TV running through my pi
[1:46] <phire> I don't think so
[1:46] <Gabtendo> HD
[1:46] <chithead> mpeg2 is not hardware accelerated
[1:46] <Gabtendo> hmph
[1:46] <Gabtendo> yeah, I was worried
[1:47] <phire> it didn't ship with the mpeg 2 codec, because licensing it would almost double the cost.

[2:25] <Gorroth> btw, what are you guys using as a C/C++ IDE in linux? i use emacs but raelly want something a lot more powerful for those languages
[2:25] <Gorroth> (and please don't tell me emacs can do it... i'd rather not use that)
[2:25] <chithead> kdevelop
[2:25] <mranostay> Gorroth: vim
[2:26] <mrdragons> ^ That man right thar
[2:27] <Gorroth> no
[2:27] <Gorroth> emacs > vim in my book
[2:27] <Gorroth> and i don't want to use emacs
[2:27] <npm> im using emacs
[2:27] <npm> its awesome
[2:28] <Gorroth> chithead: yeah, i know about kdevelop; i'll try it out again. hoping someone else might have a suggestion too :)
[2:28] <Gorroth> nah, i use emacs on huge projects... sucks for that
[2:28] <npm> it's an editor, not an ide
[2:28] <mrdragons> You asked what we used, not what you should use. :P
[2:28] <Gorroth> i asked for something other than emacs / vim
[2:28] <npm> check out qt-creator
[2:29] <Gorroth> okay
[2:29] <npm> that has very nice C/C++ editing

[2:43] <clever> Gorroth: i would just do the debuging over tcp, gdb has ways of doing that

[2:45] <npm> so was wondering whether that packaging has been done for qt-creator
[2:45] <Gorroth> clever: ah, okay. didn't know it could go over tcp, but that is sweet. i should start using that
[2:46] <clever> Gorroth: i'm not sure how the server end works, but i know the regular gdb program can act as client

[2:48] <clever> ah, just gdbserver host:2345 emacs foo.txt for example
[2:48] <clever> seems simple :)
[2:49] <trevorman> gdbserver is for back when you didn't have a network interface or you were cross compiling something
[2:49] <trevorman> its easier to just run gdb on the device if you can
[2:49] <clever> trevorman: ive also seen mention of a gdb server built into the kernel somewhere, so you can debug the kernel directly
[2:49] <trevorman> kgdb
[2:50] <clever> thats one exception where a local userspace debuger wont work right
[2:50] <Gorroth> clever: yeah, looks like that's what you do. and i guess for going over usb you'd do something like gdbserver /dev/ttyUSB0 emacs foo.txt
[2:50] <clever> just not sure how to access kgdb on the pi
[2:50] <trevorman> it doesn't give you a gdb interface though
[2:50] <trevorman> you get dropped into a debugger on the serial port
[2:50] <Gorroth> and then connect your gdb client to that USB port
[2:50] <clever> ah right
[2:50] <clever> i'll have to swap the voltage setting on my ftdi
[2:50] <trevorman> if its compiled in then it'll be something like kgdboc=ttyAMA0,115200
[2:50] <clever> its still set for 5v
[2:51] <trevorman> you don't have a network connection?
[2:51] <clever> everything works fine, i'm just curious how it all works
[2:51] <clever> and my CEC is still behaving weirdly
[2:52] <trevorman> ah
[2:52] <clever> for example, i just plugged in power, it switched to the right input no fuss
[2:52] <clever> finished booting
[2:52] <clever> then switched to the dvd/sound system and turned that on!
[2:52] * clever goes to kick it in the off button
[2:52] <trevorman> didn't think CEC worked properly on the RPi yet?
[2:53] <trevorman> could be wrong
[2:53] <clever> the gpu does cec automaticaly, even if linux lacks the drivers
[2:53] <trevorman> ah
[2:53] <clever> theres a config.txt to turn that off so the pi stops stealing input on bootup
[2:53] <clever> but ive also updated /opt and /boot and compiled libCEC, that mostly works
[2:53] <clever> i can turn everything on/off from the pi
[2:54] <clever> but libCEC locks up often, needing a full reboot

[2:54] <trevorman> libcec shouldn't be able to wedge the system that badly but the GPU might
[2:54] <clever> i suspect that my hdmi switch box may not even be obeying the specs
[2:54] <clever> the system hasnt crashed yet
[2:55] <trevorman> ah
[2:55] <clever> just the libCEC app hangs, and cec refuses to work afterwords
[2:55] <clever> the cec interface/driver locks up and stops responding properly
[2:56] <clever> whats more weird, is that ctrl+c doesnt work (kinda normal)
[2:56] <clever> but when i kill -9 the app, it just goes into zombie mode
[2:56] <clever> bash doesnt notice and clean up
[2:57] <clever> bash is supposed to clean up after its kids (waitpid)
[2:57] <trevorman> its definitely zombie? not stuck waiting on some IO or anything like that?
[2:58] <clever> clearly says defunc in ps aux
[2:58] <trevorman> ah
[2:58] <trevorman> that is strange then
[2:58] <clever> which means the process has done exit() and the parent needs to waitpid() it
[2:58] <clever> the only solution has been to kill the bad parents and let init adopt and reap
[3:00] <clever> trevorman: the main issue with cec seems to stem from the psysical addresses
[3:00] <clever> the pi thinks its at address 2.0.0.0

[3:02] <habstinat> Trying to set up Logmein Hamachi to connect to my Raspberry Pi remotely via ssh but it doesn't seem to be working. Here is my setup on logmein.com: <https://i.minus.com/iQxcrBBOHJWit.png>. "habs" is the PC I want to use to connect to the Pi with, "raspberry" is my Raspberry Pi. With this, I should be able to just ssh to my Pi's 5.x.x.x IP address from the "habs" computer, correct? However, when I try to do that I get, "ssh:
[3:02] <clever> Essobi: the data pins of the input dont go anywhere, so you can probly plug the pi back into the hub for power
[3:03] <Essobi> clever: :D Nice.
[3:03] <clever> Essobi: i'm not sure, but it may also leak power in thru the other cable also
[3:03] <Essobi> Awww.
[3:03] <Essobi> that doesn't sound like it'd be good.
[3:03] <clever> Essobi: it should be fine
[3:03] <Essobi> Hmm.. we'll seed.
[3:04] <clever> habstinat: the message cut off right at the most important part :P
[3:04] <habstinat> clever: Crap, what part? I'll paste the rest

[3:11] <clever> connection timed out just means the other end didnt answer
[3:11] <clever> so both are probly due to packet loss
[3:11] <clever> fire up tcpdump on the ham0 interface to see if the packets are even leaving the right interface
[3:12] <habstinat> clever: I'm unfamiliar with tcpdump (just installed it); "tcpdump -i ham0" is what you mean?

[3:19] * soldicon is now known as Guest50564
[3:20] <Essobi> I rather dislike hamachi
[3:20] <habstinat> clever: That is the Pi. Currently I'm using that address to SSH to it locally.
[3:20] <clever> Essobi: ive since switched to openvpn, but it is more work to setup and lacks the p2p nature
[3:20] <clever> habstinat: hmmm, do you see the hamachi interface if you run 'ifconfig' ?
[3:20] * soldicon_ is now known as soldicon
[3:21] <habstinat> clever: I do not. I only see ham0 on "habs". Hamachi is definitely installed on the Pi, as I can list clients and whatnot.
[3:22] <clever> so the problem is in the pi, hamachi is unable to create the virtual network card
[3:22] <clever> most likely because the tun driver wasnt compiled into the kernel
[3:23] <clever> i'm surprised hamachi didnt complain loudly with tun missing
[3:23] <habstinat> clever: I'm using Arch Linux ARM on it and the package was designed for Debian so perhaps that had something to do with it.

[3:26] <clever> id restart hamachi in debug mode then
[3:26] <clever> hamachi stop;hamachi start debug
[3:26] <Essobi> clever: you can make endpoints p2pish.
[3:26] <clever> Essobi: currently, all i use it for is to bypass some brain-dead router firewalls
[3:27] <Essobi> Ah.
[3:27] <clever> one router has a built in dsl modem
[3:27] <clever> the other router has built in wifi access point
[3:27] <clever> so he is forced to double nat
[3:27] <Essobi> Eww.
[3:27] <clever> 192.168.1.x and 192.168.2.x
[3:27] <clever> i havent convinced him to redo it yet
[3:27] <clever> my isp tried to pull the same stunt :P
[3:28] <Essobi> double nat == baaad, mkay?
[3:28] <clever> they butchered the router firmware, it completely lacks port forwarding
[3:28] <clever> all it has is the name/pw input, the isp logo, and a french version of the same
[3:28] <clever> luckily, it still acts as a pppoe endpoint if you refuse to give it your pw
[3:29] <Essobi> eesh, yea.. hacked up firmware
[3:29] <clever> Essobi: but things have gotten worse
[3:29] <clever> my wifi access point (with N band) claims to be an ipv6 gateway
[3:29] <clever> but its wan port goes nowhere
[3:29] <clever> and its hijacking the ipv6 routing tables everywhere
[3:29] <clever> the config wont let you disable ipv6
[3:30] <clever> just to avoud double-nating, ive disabled dhcp and connected the lan ports to the lan
[3:30] <Essobi> ..... haha.
[3:31] <habstinat> clever: clever Well, it's in debug mode now, but I'm not quite sure where the information is being logged to. Still no success with ssh.
[3:31] <clever> habstinat: it should spew everything to the terminal you started it in
[3:31] <clever> (enless they changed something)
[3:31] <kn1000> Anyone know much about the GPIO pins on the Raspberry Pi - What is the max current that the GPIO pins can put out?
[3:31] <clever> Essobi: i'm now getting 2 default routes (cli tools dont even allow you to do that)
[3:31] <clever> Essobi: and its always using the wrong one
[3:32] <npm> Just compiled and built http://www.nielsmayer.com/bin/view/MeeGo/QmlTube on raspberry pi w/ no changes
[3:32] <clever> hmmm, now that i think about that, that might be why dads facebook is always crap
[3:32] <npm> and it runs, sorta... wishes it had OpenGL display speedups
[3:32] <clever> his browser cant handle the broken v6 and just hangs
[3:33] <Essobi> clever: yup.. It is.
[3:33] <clever> Essobi: can you think of any way to make the dlink dir-601 just shut up on v6?
[3:33] <Essobi> ipv6 borken networks are f'ing annoying.
[3:33] <Essobi> clever: not off hand... disable it on the clients.
[3:33] <clever> but my ipv6 works fine if the dlink would just shut up
[3:34] <Essobi> Or slap a PFsense box up between it and the lan
[3:34] <plugwash> clever, does openwrt support it
[3:34] <habstinat> clever: I suppose they must have, because I ran "sudo /etc/rc.d/logmein-hamachi start debug" and I haven't got any extra output from pinging the Pi or setting my nick yet.
[3:34] <clever> my current fix is to crontab this, * * * * * ip route del via fe80::218:e7ff:fecd:cde0 >/dev/null 2>&1

[3:37] <clever> habstinat: 'hamachi' may also be another wrapper script
[3:37] <clever> you need to read the script and see how it actualy starts it
[3:37] <clever> and it may not even run as root
[3:37] <clever> hamachi needs to be run under the same username you set it up as
[3:37] <clever> and the script is probly setup to manage that and hide that
[3:39] <habstinat> clever: OK. So the real hamachi is at /opt/logmein-hamachi/bin/hamachid. I got it to run in debug mode successfully. What should I paste the output of?
[3:39] <clever> plugwash: the file it refers to is now missing from the downloads dir
[3:40] <clever> habstinat: is there any mention of creating the network interface?
[3:40] <habstinat> clever: There was so much output on startup I couldn't even fit it all in my scrollback. I'm not sure what to look for.
[3:41] <clever> habstinat: i havent looked at it much before either, so your kinda on your own now
[3:41] <clever> plugwash: looks like it has a bootloader, so i can atleast unbrick it later, though its over in 192.168.1 land
[3:43] <habstinat> clever: OK, well thank you so much for your help. I don't know if anyone here can decipher this but here is the full startup log: http://sprunge.us/igfR

[6:03] <Essobi> AC`97: Are you?
[6:03] <AC`97> i think so
[6:04] <AC`97> even with my gorilla-glued lump of brass on the ethernet/usb controller, it's still getting quite hot
[6:04] <Essobi> .....
[6:04] <Essobi> You gorilla-glued it?
[6:04] <AC`97> yes. smart, eh?
[6:05] <Essobi> And why in gods name did you use brass?
[6:05] <AC`97> it was the only thing i had
[6:05] <AC`97> it's nickel plated too, i think
[6:05] <AC`97> i didn't want it to fall off and short something
[6:05] * Essobi face palms so hard he commits suicide.
[6:05] <heathkid> omg
[6:05] <AC`97> i feel sorry for your face.
[6:06] <AC`97> i think the error "eth0: Failed to read register index 0x00000114" might be caused by heat. either that or bad power
[6:06] <Essobi> I feel sorry for your poor little pi.
[6:06] <Essobi> Have you tested the power?
[6:06] <AC`97> tomorrow i'm going to cut a custom heatsink that covers around half the board
[6:06] <AC`97> er, testing now
[6:06] <Essobi> TP1/2.. do it when you're getting the error..
[6:07] <AC`97> 4.82v
[6:07] <AC`97> i think sometimes it drops to 4.7x
[6:07] <AC`97> but that shouldn't cause problems, i think
[6:07] <heathkid> there is a bit of difference between copper and gorilla clued brass used as a heatsink...

[6:20] <Essobi> reflowing with a blanket has to take the cake..
[6:20] <AC`97> the torch i used actually has enough power to cut through the heatsink ^_^
[6:20] <Helldesk> clever: huh, I guess you can't pull the lines high either
[6:21] <clever> Helldesk: i just need to power the ftdi fully over usb first
[6:21] <Essobi> clever: Yea.. that's just weird thou.
[6:21] <clever> Helldesk: ive had similar issues before in the other direction, the ftdi was powering another device just enough for it to half start and malfunction
[6:21] <clever> and only cutting power would reboot it
[6:21] <clever> which i cant do if the ftdi is powering it
[6:23] <Essobi> Couldn't you use a transistor or something to mitigate that?
[6:23] <clever> posibly, using the 3.3v rail from the other system, both rails
[6:23] <Xark> Helldesk: Sorry, I missed your exact problem, but I haven't had any trouble with my FTDI and the RPi. What trouble are you having?
[6:24] <clever> so the pi would power the transistor, and enable the ftdi to recieve its own 3v3 rail
[6:24] <clever> if the ftdi is off, it recieves nothing
[6:24] <clever> same in the other dir, with the pi's 3v3 rail
[6:24] <Essobi> :D
[6:24] <clever> it would also act as a voltage translator
[6:24] <Essobi> right?
[6:24] <clever> both ends recieve power from their own rail, so they wont get more then they can handle
[6:25] <Essobi> You could add opto isolation for giggle too if you wanted..
[6:25] <linq> Which VNC client do folks around here prefer?

[6:29] <AC`97> so, i believe i found out why my ethernet/usb controller gets hot
[6:29] <clever> nope, just a bzImage
[6:29] <Xark> clever: FTDI rarely needs 5v, since it is 5v tolerant and its 3.3v high is enough to be read as high by 5v devices.
[6:29] <AC`97> http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=29&t=14489
[6:29] <clever> AC`97: ive heard in here that the ethernet is always hot
[6:29] <clever> Xark: but i'm often powering 5v devices from the ftdi
[6:29] <clever> no psu
[6:29] <AC`97> clever: hotter than the cpu?
[6:29] <clever> AC`97: it is on mine

[6:30] * Nino (~Nino@S01060018e7d46123.vc.shawcable.net) has left #raspberrypi
[6:30] <clever> and you cant actualy feel the cpu temp
[6:30] <clever> the ram is on top
[6:30] <AC`97> yah
[6:30] <clever> and if you look closely, theres an air gap between cpu and ram
[6:30] <Xark> clever: OK, but I get 5V USB from my FTDI dongle too, but the FTDI chip runs 3.3v (on mine from Adafruit - same as FTDI cable).
[6:30] <AC`97> clever: well, it's not really an air gap
[6:30] <AC`97> they're connected with solder :P
[6:31] <clever> Xark: the ftdi has an internal 3.3v regulator, and a solder jumper to select what the internal output buffer (and output vcc pin) use as the reference
[6:31] <clever> AC`97: between each ball is air
[6:31] <AC`97> there are a lot of balls
[6:31] <AC`97> (om nom nom)
[6:31] <clever> and even more air
[6:31] <Xark> clever: Right. All I am saying is even for use with 5v devices usually FTDI is always at 3.3v (in my experience).
[6:32] <Xark> clever: I.e., you don't need 5v FTDI hardly ever.
[6:33] <AC`97> http://www.element14.com/community/servlet/JiveServlet/downloadImage/2-57060-89409/450-464/IMG_0976.JPG i want to try this mod

[6:33] <AC`97> except my soldering iron tip is like 3/4th the width of the chip

[6:34] <clever> Xark: and that isnt broken out on its own pin, so id need to cut up a usb cable
[6:34] <Xark> clever: So, quoting from Adafruit website -> the power wire is +5V and the signal levels are 3.3V (they are 5V compliant, and should work in the vast majority of 3.3V and 5V signal systems).
[6:35] <clever> Xark: not using the adafruit one
[6:35] <Xark> clever: OK, but this is the same as FTDI standard cable.
[6:35] <clever> not using the cable
[6:35] <clever> Xark: https://www.sparkfun.com/products/9716
[6:37] <Xark> clever: Ok, they have two models. You for sure don't want signal lines 5v and it looks like power supply and chip voltage are both settable (so 5v power and 3.3v I/O level is probably what you want - like Adafrut and standard FTDI setup).

[6:50] <criten> I can get some debug information back.... but it's a ttl device so the 5v wouldn't play well with the GPIO
[6:50] <clever> ah
[6:50] <criten> luckily enough the 3.3v from the GPIO triggers as a logic high on TTL
[6:50] <clever> so tx only would be within its high range
[6:50] <criten> Yup
[6:50] * Lupinedk is now known as lupinedk
[6:50] <clever> only issue would be potential pullups on the rx input
[6:51] <criten> It's been working fine so i'm not worried about that
[6:51] <clever> and those are usualy limited in how much current they can give
[6:51] <criten> I'm not powering the servos off of it
[6:51] <criten> They have their own supply
[6:51] <clever> yeah, that could be done off the 5v rail if you had to
[6:52] <criten> I have a dedicated 3amp supply for the servos
[6:52] <clever> ah nice
[6:52] <criten> Did you see the pictures of my robot the other night?
[6:53] <criten> http://imgur.com/a/eXG9Z#0
[6:53] <clever> nice
[6:54] <criten> It's since had more wiring done...
[6:54] <criten> I used to drive it off of a mini-itx motherboard... but that drew allot of power
[6:54] <criten> and wasn't as reliable
[6:54] <criten> the Pi is perfect for it : ]
[6:55] <clever> :)
[6:57] <Helldesk> a lot
[6:57] <Helldesk> allotting is something completely different and is a verb

[7:16] <criten> clever: That would probably explain why i had to reset the servo controller after a boot
[7:16] <criten> clever: It sets it baud based on the speed of the first command
[7:16] <clever> the entire boot log is probly dumped to the serial port, at 115200 baud
[7:17] <clever> beyond the limits of it, so who knows what speed it gets set to
[7:17] <criten> ye
[7:17] <criten> yea*
[7:17] <criten> well
[7:17] <criten> actually it just errors
[7:17] <criten> If the red led stays lit and the green one flashes it means its to high
[7:17] <criten> which it did.
[7:18] <criten> It's a pretty neat little controller
[7:18] <clever> criten: do you have anything like an ftdi?
[7:18] <criten> clever: I have a usb ftdi adapter I used it to talk to my arduino
[7:19] <clever> you could connect the pi's TX to BOTH the servo controller and RX on the ftdi
[7:19] <clever> then you can confirm everything is being sent right, at the expected baud

[8:19] <AC`97> MUCH cheaper
[8:19] <xiambax> apparently these things are indestructible though

[8:29] <Essobi> jeez..
[8:30] <Essobi> 1000aH I can power a pi and a camera for days I bet..
[8:30] <clever> assuming you just leave it near idle, 12000/400 roughtly
[8:30] <clever> 30 hours
[8:30] <xiambax> Im thinking you could then use solar during the day to charge one of these too
[8:30] <clever> but the battery is likely not 5v constant, and the 12000mAh rating is for the battery itself
[8:31] <xiambax> So you could run it to be redundant
[8:31] <DarkTherapy> you could get a dd-wrt compatible router and run a web server from that

[9:45] <warddr> Hello all, I am making a DIY usb cable with external power to connect a raspberry pi with a wireless dongel. For that I am using 1 usb wire, and 1 usb male - female connector. Is it ok to just solder the red to the black wire? Or do I need something more to make an external powered cable?
[9:47] <clever> if i was to add external clamping diodes to all GPIO pins (to vcc and gnd) would that provide good enough protection to the pi, to prevent any over-voltage conditions?
[9:47] <clever> and would the voltage drop of the diode matter much?
[9:49] <paws> Dysk: why does my omxplayer tell me ERROR: COMXPlayer::OpenFile - File.mp3 ?
[9:50] <Dysk> paws: I have no idea.
[9:50] <Dysk> paws: I don't now what version of it Arch supplies or anything.
[9:50] <clever> paws: i think omxplayer is video files only
[9:50] <gordonDrogon> clever, what's your aim for gpio protection? bettr to simply not connect it to anything more than +3,3v
[9:50] <paws> err sorry I was trying mp3 and .avi
[9:50] <clever> gordonDrogon: as a safety, incase you put in higher voltages by mistake
[9:51] <clever> gordonDrogon: and simpler then a full set of buffer chips (which are direction sensitive)
[9:51] <clever> paws: can you run md5sum on the same file?
[9:51] <gordonDrogon> clever, are you making a general purpose buffer board of some sort, or just to connect to your own projects?

[9:52] <paws> I dont know the original md5sum
[9:52] <clever> gordonDrogon: i was just thinking, the AVR's have internal clamping diodes and that makes them relatively robust, and it would be pretty cheap/simple to add the same to a pi board

[9:54] <Dysk> If you give omxplayer a file that doesn't exist as argument, it should just ignore it and then exit nicely
[9:54] <Dysk> Not error.
[9:54] <clever> mplayer has a habit of saying file not found when it lacks +r

[10:23] <Dysk> If that's the format to make rpi-update use the 192/64 memsplit, then yes )
[10:23] <Dysk> :)
[10:24] <Dysk> It sounds pretty plausible, but I couldn't actually claim to know rpi-update's syntax
[10:24] <paws> the sample here only shows 'rpi-update 192'
[10:25] <paws> but i will add the 64
[10:25] <Dysk> You don't need to, I'm pretty sure.
[10:25] <Dysk> The file is called arm192_start.elf - it's kinda assumed that any memory not going to the CPU is going to the GPU
[10:25] <Dysk> So it would make perfect sense for rpi-update to only take the first figure.

[10:52] <warddr> I'm having the strangest problems. I made a DIY powered usb male-female cable, If I use the cable on my desktop it works just fine, with my wireless adapter as well, if I connect it with a raspberry pi and attatch a mouse to it it works fine, if I attach the wireless adapter to it it doesn't even show up in lsusb (and it does show up if I plug it straight into the raspberry pi). Anyone any clue?
[10:53] <bircoe> the wireless adapter is probably trying to draw too much power.
[10:53] <Xark> warddr: Most likely power issues. Some WiFi adapters draw too much power for internal USB ports (and low polyfuse or somesuch).
[10:54] <bircoe> the Pi has 140ma fuses on the USB ports that will "blow" when a device tries to draw more than that.
[10:54] <bircoe> the fuses are self resetting so it's not a permanent thing.
[10:54] <Xark> warddr: Powered external hub is best (or get a WiFi from short list of low-power ones known to work perhaps).
[10:55] <bircoe> I know for a fact Asus USB-N10 works just fine on the onboard USB ports.
[10:55] <warddr> That's why I made this powered cable, but without the cable the adapter showes up in lsusb, I can enable it using ifconfig, but I cannot scan. If I use it with a powered cable it doesn't even show up in lsusb
[10:55] <Xark> warddr: What exactly does this cable do?
[10:56] <warddr> Just opened the cable and added a 5V power supply to the red and black cable
[10:56] <bircoe> do the + and _ wires still make contact to the USB side?
[10:56] <bircoe> - rather
[10:56] <warddr> everything works on my desktop computer, and on the rp the cable even works with a mouse, but not with the wireless thing
[10:57] * DarkTherapy (~darkther4@92.40.253.36.threembb.co.uk) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[10:57] <bircoe> so do the power wires make contact through the adapter back to the USB port or are they only connected to yoru external supply?
[10:59] <warddr> I added the power supply in parallel to the already existing red and black powerlines in the usb cable
[11:00] <clever> bircoe: is the gnd line from the usb cable still connected to gnd on the pi?
[11:01] <Xark> warddr: Interesting. So kind of a hacked powered hub. :)
[11:01] <warddr> yes
[11:02] <bircoe> warddr... perhaps you've created a ground loop...
[11:02] <warddr> (just because I didn't have a real one here, and the nearest shop where they might have it is at 20Km
[11:02] <bircoe> Xark: I wouldn't consider doing that if I were you
[11:02] <Xark> warddr: A real powered hub is isolated.
[11:02] <Xark> bircoe: Don't worry. :)
[11:02] <bircoe> good :)
[11:03] * warddr will go to that computer store, sound better than to brake the rp
[11:03] <warddr> it takes such a long time to get a replacement
[11:03] <bircoe> just order a cheapie hub off ebay or something
[11:03] <warddr> that would take a couple of days I guess
[11:04] <Xark> warddr: Yeah, I am pretty sure you get some wack electrical problems with a setup like that. When I have done similar my USB power speakers start to emit loud noises telling me I am doing bad things. :)

[12:09] <clever> gordonDrogon: does the pi cpu have any differential signaling modes?
[12:10] <clever> gordonDrogon: trying to get a basic plan together for http://gallery.earthtools.ca/download/LP154W01-TLD2.pdf
[12:11] <gordonDrogon> I'm not aware that it can do differential...
[12:11] <clever> gordonDrogon: most important part is page 8 (shows 3 data pairs and 1 clock pair) and 9 (dot clock of 68.9mhz)
[12:11] <clever> i know that atleast the hdmi is differential, but that may be dedicated hardware
[12:12] <clever> and... *looks*
[12:13] <gordonDrogon> clever, that's the sort of thing that needs to be connected to some sort of proper lvds type of port.
[12:13] <clever> http://www.raspberrypi.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/04/Raspberry-Pi-Schematics-R1.0.pdf the display connector (S2 page 4) has 3 differential lines
[12:13] <gordonDrogon> I really do not think you'll ever interface that to a Pi.
[12:13] <clever> gordonDrogon: have a look at S2 on page 4 of that pdf
[12:14] <gordonDrogon> Yes, it's a "proper" video display.
[12:14] <clever> DSI1_CP DSI1_CN (clock pos neg?)
[12:14] <gordonDrogon> it needs to be connected to an LVDS port on the PC
[12:14] <clever> then 2 data pos/neg pairs
[12:14] <gordonDrogon> it's the sort of thing in laptops/portable media players.
[12:14] <clever> and that datasheet is for the bare lcd panel off a laptop
[12:14] <gordonDrogon> quite.
[12:15] <clever> and S2 has almost enough pairs to handle it
[12:15] <gordonDrogon> So while it moght plug into the display port on the Pi, you'll need to write a kernel framebuffer driver for it and that probably needs GPU runes.
[12:15] <gordonDrogon> all I can suggest is; Good Luck.

[12:15] * PiBot sets mode +v boomtakzaag
[12:15] <clever> but could the kernel on the cpu (ignore the GPU fully) access those pins in differential mode?
[12:16] <clever> just skip the GPU runes and do it purely from cpu mode
[12:16] <chithead> I wouldn't assume that the cpu can access anything on its own
[12:16] <gordonDrogon> I really don't know, but as it's part of the video hardware, I doubt it.
[12:16] <clever> i see the cpu has 2 unused data lanes, so a new board rev could (in theory) connect to the lcd fully

[12:21] * clever goes back to datasheet hunting
[12:21] <gordonDrogon> if you repurpose them for the ARM to use, then they may lose some of their capabilities.
[12:21] <gordonDrogon> e.g. I re-use the SPI and I2C pins, but when in normal GPIO mode, they don't work in their other modes.
[12:22] <clever> it looks like the page says nothing about the differential pairs
[12:22] <clever> only the i2c lines and 2 gpio lines
[12:22] <gordonDrogon> I'd suggest that you might want to tackle an easier project first...
[12:22] <clever> ive drawn up some basic drivers for this lcd before in an fpga sim
[12:23] <trevorman> clever: the DSI port is connected to the VideoCore GPU not the ARM core
[12:23] <gordonDrogon> I'm still wishing you luck...
[12:23] <clever> trevorman: no way to control it at all then?
[12:24] <trevorman> well there is. you just need broadcom to give you a driver and then you need to reverse engineer it to work out what they're doing then adapt it to your specific panel assuming it is DSI...
[12:24] <gordonDrogon> unles you write kenel+gpu code for it ....
[12:24] <trevorman> at the moment, we have no access at all to that port
[12:24] <clever> trevorman: the panel has 3 pairs of data and 1 clock pair

[12:25] <clever> so i would need the NDA specs on the videocore and the pi's source for the videocore?
[12:26] <trevorman> you'd need to wait for the RPi foundation to do something with that DSI port

[12:29] <gordonDrogon> ben0 it wan't me, but I do recall someone doing it...
[12:29] <clever> ah, DSI is a standard
[12:29] <trevorman> CSI is from MIPI as well
[12:30] <trevorman> its a standard but from what I understand, there is still a lot of model and manufacturer specific variation so it isn't plug in and go
[12:31] <clever> looking at the schematic sheet, the DSI port is 1 data lane short of supporting my lcd panel
[12:31] <clever> but there are 2 unused data lanes on the chip
[12:32] * UKB|Sleep is now known as unknownbliss

[12:33] <clever> so it will likely have a missing color or worse

[13:46] <gordonDrogon> Jck_true, no problem at all - it's just a novel way to do it...
[13:47] <gordonDrogon> Jck_true, for a 4x4 matrix, traditionally, you'd use 4 outputs and 4 inputs - i've used 8 inputs, but can make an input pretend to be an output by setting its internal pull up / pull down resistor...
[13:47] <gordonDrogon> it saves 4 resistors on the circuit board...

[13:48] <dwatkins> Farnell are sending me a replacement Pi. Mine has intermittent network issues under CPU load.
[13:49] <dwatkins> BenO: sounds like my issues may be similar to yours
[13:49] <Jck_true> dwatkins: Pretty sure all boards got that...
[13:49] <dwatkins> Jck_true: all boards got what?
[13:49] <Jck_true> dwatkins: Kernel panics with heavy network load + USB?
[13:49] <dwatkins> The network drops if there's CPU load and never comes back up on mine.
[13:50] <Jck_true> Oh nvm then :)
[13:50] <gordonDrogon> I've seen it produce errors, but never drop offline completely...
[13:50] <dwatkins> If it dropped a ping or a packet or two, I could understand that, but this is different and doesn't coincide with panics.
[13:50] <BenO> dwatkins, all the boards suffer from that to a degree, as it is driver issues + Eth as Eth-over-USB
[13:50] <BenO> dwatkins, Yours sounds more nasty than the usual
[13:50] <dwatkins> Jck_true: yeah, so I gather - I waited until I was sure to report it, in case it was just 'as expected' etc.
[13:51] <dwatkins> yeah, BenO - don't think it's the revision of the chips, might be the resistors on the USB ports, as I gather they vary quite a lot from one board to another.
[13:51] <Jck_true> Guess my little pi hasn't matured enough to become a seedfruit yet
[13:51] <dwatkins> Even with exactly 5 Volts between TP1 and TP2 it still drops the network after a bit.
[13:51] <Jck_true> dwatkins: Yeah I powered of a 2?? Amp powersupply - no difference

[13:53] <BenO> dwatkins, that would certainly contribute! (but there are/were some real problems with the driver)
[13:54] <dwatkins> I tried three distros, so I don't believe the driver is to blame.
[13:54] <BenO> the distros all use the same one
[13:54] <BenO> IIRC anyway
[13:54] <dwatkins> oh ok, still should at least work or give errors
[13:55] <dwatkins> mine was acting like the cable wasn't attached, despite showing messages when the cable was physically connewcted.
[13:55] <dwatkins> i.e. it never got a DHCP address
[13:55] <dwatkins> static ip didn't return pings etc.
[13:56] <BenO> dwatkins, it does sound like two issues - the sw side was kernel panicing/not responding randomly under load. It has got better.
[13:56] <Jck_true> dwatkins: Sounds like you did right returning it
[13:56] <BenO> dwatkins, as Jck_true said :)
[13:57] <dwatkins> yeah, hopefully Farnell are looking into the cause of these issues as well.
[13:57] <dwatkins> I assume it's wrong components, wrong resistor values or something like that

[15:38] <shapr> I have a friend flying over here on Thursday, and we'd love to get hold of a spare Pi.
[15:39] <clever> shapr: https://www.sparkfun.com/products/116
[15:39] <sutterCane> is it possible to boot diferent distros on the pi but using the same kernel.img on the sd card?
[15:39] <clever> basicaly, i connected this header to the breakout board with as short of a wire as posible
[15:39] <ReggieUK> sutterCane, kind of
[15:39] <clever> shapr: so i can then plug the xbee board into the ftdi
[15:39] <ReggieUK> you just need to access cmdline.txt edit it before you use a different rootfs
[15:40] <clever> shapr: but you can probly save space if you use a custom board with the xbee footprint&ftdi onboard
[15:40] <ReggieUK> so that it points to the correct rootfs partition
[15:40] <shapr> clever: wirewrap it ;-)
[15:40] <ReggieUK> there is also uboot knocking around somewhere
[15:40] <clever> ReggieUK: does the pi support using an initrd at all?
[15:40] <clever> shapr: i would need pins to do that
[15:40] <ReggieUK> no idea
[15:40] <sutterCane> very nice, thank you ReggieUK
[15:40] <clever> shapr: even a 2mm xbee socket is too much
[15:40] <shapr> ah right
[15:40] <fwisses> I guess I'll just run it off composite video.
[15:41] <ReggieUK> but I don't think the pi has to support initrd does it?
[15:41] <ReggieUK> it's just that the kernel needs setting up for it
[15:41] <fwisses> Can I plug in composite video while the pi is on?
[15:41] <fwisses> It's already hooked up by HDMI.
[15:41] <clever> ReggieUK, sutterCane: i suspect you could make a kernel with the initrd linked into it, then the initrd could present a menu, and chroot to the distro of your choice
[15:41] <Dyskette> fwisses: you can't have it running both video outputs, so probably not usefully, at least.
[15:42] <ReggieUK> clever, that's why I suggested uboot, to give you options

[15:42] <clever> uboot does sound like a better solution, but ive never looked at it before
[15:42] <sutterCane> sounds good. for the moment i can live with editing cmdline.txt
[15:43] <clever> shapr: xbee is also not limited to a single peer, so i could put it in API mode and receive packets from a dozen devices
[15:43] <clever> shapr: in API mode i get the source device addr
[15:43] <shapr> clever: Right, I like XBee lots.
[15:44] <clever> shapr: the biggest surprise problem, the tinfoil shield on the bottom cover
[15:44] <clever> having a foil shield directly against your chip antenna doesnt help your signal :P
[15:44] <shapr> hahaa
[15:44] <shapr> So all the RF-blocking they put around the EEE internals actually works :-)
[15:44] <clever> shapr: and i have no idea what a 2.4ghz transmiter on the inside of the shield is going to do to system stability
[15:45] <clever> but i cut a hole the size/shape of the chip antenna, right over the antenna

[15:46] <clever> nope
[15:46] <clever> and with all of the exposed pins, id need to wrap it in several layers of plastic
[15:46] <clever> oh, another minor problem
[15:46] <clever> i put a volt meter on the 5v supply over usb
[15:46] <clever> turned it on
[15:46] <clever> +5v +5v 0v 0v 0v ....???

[15:47] <shapr> huh, smart for power saving, frustrating for adding hacked in devices :-)
[15:47] <clever> and after that, i found out i can manualy control power, /sys/devices/platform/eeepc/camera
[15:47] <clever> 0 cuts power, 1 turns it back on

[16:12] <clever> booyaa: led0 works, but its mis-configured in kernel
[16:13] <clever> booyaa: it claims to have brightness levels from 0 to 255, but 1-255 are all solid on
[16:13] <clever> minor
[16:13] <gordonDrogon> that only works on PWM outputs.
[16:13] <ReggieUK> led0 on the pi is configured for mmc in bcm2708.c I believe
[16:13] <clever> gordonDrogon: yeah, it should give a max_brightness of 1 for non-pwm outputs
[16:13] <clever> ReggieUK: yeah it appears to have manual and automatic (sd activity) modes
[16:14] <clever> ReggieUK: it also has a mmc0:: led in the dir, which seems to have no effect

[16:17] <ReggieUK> search for mmc in that file
[16:17] <ReggieUK> that's how it gets related
[16:18] <ReggieUK> you give the led a subsystem or something and it happens to be set to mmc
[16:18] <clever> ReggieUK: doesnt show up in any of the led related info, except for the default trigger on led0
[16:18] <ReggieUK> indeed
[16:18] <clever> doesnt explain the second (non functional?) led in the dir
[16:18] <ReggieUK> that's the bit I'm talking about
[16:18] <ReggieUK> ahh, I see

[16:18] <clever> root@raspberrypi:/sys/class/leds# ls\nled0 mmc0::
[16:19] <clever> ReggieUK: led0 is in platform/leds-gpio, while mmc0:: is just platform/leds/
[16:19] <ReggieUK> fwisses, I have no idea about that the, sorry
[16:19] <fwisses> "Darn," said fwisses.
[16:19] <clever> leds-gpio is the name from struct platform_device bcm2708_led_device
[16:20] <ReggieUK> mmc0 not exposed properly in userland then?
[16:20] <clever> its being exported by some other kernel driver
[16:20] <clever> and controls an unknown pin
[16:20] <ReggieUK> get an LA on the gpio and see which one wiggles when you do something to the led driver?
[16:20] <ReggieUK> or a dmm
[16:21] <mongrelion> I can see an expception in the syslog /o\
[16:21] <clever> for all i know, it could be one of the un-connected gpio pins
[16:21] <ReggieUK> how is it an unknown pin?
[16:21] <clever> it doesnt effect the OK led, and no other led goes to the gpu
[16:21] <clever> or cpu
[16:22] <clever> so i have no clue what pin it controls
[16:22] <ReggieUK> sure but somewhere in the code it's got to ID itself when it tries to do stuff
[16:22] <clever> yeah, still trying to find that in the code
[16:22] <ReggieUK> ahh, ok :)
[16:22] <clever> the device name is rather generic, 'leds'
[16:22] <ReggieUK> I thought you'd hit a random show stopper
[16:23] <ReggieUK> yeah, that's going to return a lot of hits :D
[16:23] <clever> i'm also looking up what gpio the OK led is on, it looks trivial to add a dozen more /sys leds on the gpio header
[16:24] <ReggieUK> \o/ yay, moodpi
[16:24] <Hodapp> moodpi?
[16:24] <clever> ok, its connected t the STATUS_LED_N wire, *looks more*

[16:30] <clever> for general led control i see no real need to set it 'properly'
[16:30] <clever> the gpio stuff in /sys would work fine
[16:31] <clever> i could see a benefit if you wanted to do a 'proper' case without light-pipes, just add your own led's, and then define them

[16:53] <booyaa> i actually got the local ircd to start

[16:55] <Generale_Russo> ah wait a second
[16:55] <booyaa> mongrelion: :(
[16:55] <clever> DarkTherapy: so you may be able to put debian on the eyefi, then somehow access the flash and wifi, but no clue how
[16:55] <Generale_Russo> i actually use irssi to like chat in MSN, while using the bitlbee daemon
[16:55] <DarkTherapy> ok, cheers

[17:01] <Butcho> xbian... cool! does it support HDMI CEC ?
[17:02] <Butcho> CEC is the hdmi protocol to use your TV remote
[17:02] <Butcho> so to speak, if your TV supports it
[17:02] <mongrelion> I haven't yet tried the HDMI, but I saw it working in a video in youtube. also, I have read some kind of bug report for the CEC thing, but I don't really know what that is.

[17:20] <Aleksander> btw, it'll be some weeks until I buy Raspberry Pi and I'd like to ask you a question - I want to make it my home torrent server
[17:21] <Aleksander> so that I place a file to send and .torrent on a SD card and it starts seeding
[17:21] <Aleksander> the best candidate to do that would be rtorrent, right?
[17:22] <swecide> you can add a link directly to the torrent/magnet link in rtorrent too
[17:24] <Aleksander> it's more about seeding something than downloading - for example right now I'm seeding 3 GB of my friend's wedding photos - fastest way to spread them around the country
[17:24] <swecide> you can set up rtorrent to look for .torrents in a certain folder
[17:25] <xarragon> Aleksander: You mean how I have some terabytes of.. "vacation movies" on my hdds? *wink* *wink* *nudge* *nudge*
[17:25] <Aleksander> that's what I wanted :)
[17:25] <Aleksander> xarragon, nah, they're more... regular wedding photos
[17:25] <Aleksander> with all the uncles, aunties and grand-grandmothers. wouldn't want to see them in such movie.
[17:26] <sraue> grnis, is xbian not based on raspbian, and they dont recompile the whole system?

[17:27] <Aleksander> xarragon, I got it ;) anyway, I'd really like people to start thinking of torrents more like a technology, not only piracy-specific protocol
[17:27] <Aleksander> was it France which proposed banning all P2P? xD
[17:27] <Aleksander> "People drive too fast, let's ban roads!"
[17:27] <Essobi> To be honest... piracy is the last thing I think of when I think of Torrent.
[17:27] <sraue> grnis, mongrelion i think the biggest difference with xbian is they overclock much more per default (which should be up to the user and not the distro)
[17:28] <xarragon> Not that ISPs and CDNs would mind, they'd love to go to a one-to-many instead of peer-to-peer

[17:29] <Aleksander> xarragon, I don't really get it, why would ISP want one2many instead of p2p? it's p2p which generates MOST of traffic = people want to buy higher bandwidthss
[17:30] <mongrelion> sraue: if I ain't wrong, raspbmc also overclocks the proc by default, and there's nothing wrong in it, in my opinion, because they want to give you a working version of xbmc, and I don't see that possible with the default cpu speed.
[17:31] <xarragon> Aleksander: Some of them wants to turn into the equivalent of an IP-based cable-TV supplier instead of a general carrier, at least if their networks are near full capacity. Gives more money per transferred byte.

[17:48] <shapr> marcusw: Are you able to get non-stuttery sound out of your Pi?
[17:48] <mongrelion> lol, that looks like your kid's playground.
[17:48] <marcusw> shapr: yeah?
[17:49] <shapr> marcusw: Well, not all drivers work outside of x86
[17:49] <marcusw> omxplayer does it flawlessly
[17:49] <shapr> marcusw: Oh, I must be doing something wrong then.
[17:49] <marcusw> shapr: all right, will keep that in mind
[17:49] <marcusw> what are you doing?
[17:49] <shapr> I installed mpd and tried to play FLACs I copied to my SD card

[17:50] <marcusw> oh, IDK about FLAC+mpd
[17:50] <marcusw> I run mpd on another computer and stream to the rpi
[17:50] <marcusw> streaming 32k LAME with omxplayer is like 10% CPU

[17:51] <Essobi> command line gpu accelerated media player
[17:51] <marcusw> it's the default player in rpi
[17:51] <Essobi> for pi
[17:51] <marcusw> or something
[17:51] <shapr> oh neat, I'll look it up.
[17:51] <marcusw> just omxplayer <streamurl>
[17:51] <Essobi> (what I said)

[17:51] <marcusw> it does http lame streams flawlessly

[17:52] <shapr> Does omxplayer handle FLACs?
[17:52] <marcusw> but you can't set buffer size (at least I haven't figured out how to)
[17:52] <Essobi> No idea what formats.. you can check their homepage.
[17:52] <marcusw> shapr: it should, I think...haven't tried it

[18:17] <mongrelion> zhvtar: what distro did you choose?
[18:17] <zhvtar> Raspbian.
[18:17] <thrawed> zhvtar: official?
[18:18] <thrawed> I prefer pisces over official raspbian for some reason.
[18:18] <Essobi> Ya?
[18:18] <zhvtar> mongrelion & thrawed: http://www.raspberrypi.org/downloads, first one on the list.
[18:18] <Essobi> I'm running darkbasic.

[18:19] <mongrelion> I'd like xbian to make a little tweaks so that for example it doesn't start xbmc on startup and also it shouldn't die after a while when connected via ssh :/
[18:20] <Essobi> heh
[18:20] <thrawed> mongrelion: if you don't want xbmc on it wouldn't plain raspbian be better for you?

[18:23] <mongrelion> you're wrong, mate. What you describe is raspbmc.
[18:23] <mongrelion> xbian has some tweaks that make it perform faster than raspbian + xbmc/raspbmc

[18:35] <thrawed> the sheevaplug has esata
[18:35] <mikma> 701
[18:36] <thrawed> mongrelion: 2000
[18:36] <IT_Sean> 659
[18:36] <gordonDrogon> mongrelion, AIUI you're unlikely to damage by overclocking alone, so just try anything from 700 up. I have 3 Pi's running at 900.
[18:36] <IT_Sean> You CANNOT damage the hardware just by Overclocking. However, to overclock beyond a certain point, you need to overVOLT. And overvolting CAN damage hardware.
[18:37] <thrawed> gordonDrogon: any of them overvolted?
[18:37] <mongrelion> gordonDrogon: good to know.
[18:37] <mongrelion> thrawed: :/
[18:37] <gordonDrogon> thrawed, no.

[18:37] * IT_Sean overvolts gordonDrogon
[18:37] <gordonDrogon> Bzzzzzzzzzzt!

[19:02] * scorphus (~scorphus@CAcert/User/scorphus) Quit (Ping timeout: 246 seconds)
[19:03] <nid0> your best bet if you dont have a pi of your own is to download the punnett printable case and work off its measurements, or look at the measurements for the million and one 3d printable cases up on thingverse etc

[19:04] <thrawed> loadbang: dhcp turned on in your router?
[19:04] <gordonDrogon> loadbang, ifdown -a ; ifup -a
[19:04] <chithead> I don't think any existing case allows access to all connectors. most don't have spare for the csi/dsi
[19:05] <loadbang> thrawed: I have a RPi with no programmed serial number, revision number so doesn't have a fixed MAC so dhcp I do not use on my RPi.
[19:06] <thrawed> none of the pis have fixed ethernet macs
[19:07] <loadbang> and as ethernet and USB is so unstable I end up getting hundreds of IP addresses reserved on my router and I end up having none left for other devices.
[19:07] <loadbang> I have to let all the leases go.
[19:07] <thrawed> wow, that is strange

[19:10] <[SLB]> in this case for now, first file it's asking me for, i haven't touched it at all, so i guess it's better to have it updated, no?
[19:11] <loadbang> gordonDrogon: still no luck
[19:11] <thrawed> dunno

[19:26] <mrdragons> Hmm, I might mess around with making a tiny bare-bones image
[19:26] <gordonDrogon> loadbang, at this point I'm going to ask stuff like "is it plugged in", and so on ...
[19:27] <shayla> have anyone compiled a kind of list of awesome raspi projects one look at when inspiration is lacking?
[19:27] <gordonDrogon> loadbang, try sudo mii-tool eth0
[19:27] <Butcho> loadbang
[19:27] <thrawed> shayla: forums
[19:27] <loadbang> I think I might ref lash the SD card.
[19:27] <Butcho> whats your ifconfig eth0
[19:27] <gordonDrogon> eth0: negotiated 1000baseT-HD flow-control, link ok
[19:27] <gordonDrogon> is what mii-tool should say.
[19:28] <loadbang> that's what it says
[19:28] <gordonDrogon> which is patently wrong.
[19:28] <gordonDrogon> however.
[19:28] <gordonDrogon> can you pin 192.168.0.1 ?

[19:30] <gordonDrogon> that suggests something wrong with you router, the cable or the Pi ...
[19:30] <gordonDrogon> you diagnose the cable & router by plugging it into a laptop...

[19:35] <daniel__2> are there any steps on doing this? i've seen there are precompiled images etc
[19:36] <thrawed> daniel__2: it'd be much easier if you went with something that has xbmc pre-loaded like xbian (which is raspbian underneath)

[19:40] <marcusw> tl;dr get openelec if you want xbmc

[19:40] <thrawed> marcusw: xbian or raspbmc would be better for him as he wants to keep raspbian
[19:41] <daniel__2> i want to keep raspbian for the simple reason that its most likely to support most things

[19:45] <thrawed> yeah
[19:46] <daniel__2> probably more expensive than a pi as well
[19:46] <thrawed> Twice the price, but twice the value
[19:46] <nid0> there's no "probably" about it
[19:46] <thrawed> it'll become a new gaming platform

[19:48] <thrawed> hdmi cables aren't that flexible
[19:48] <gordonDrogon> it was relatively expensive, but the only one the shop had when I needed one.
[19:48] <daniel__2> where can i get a hinged hdmi cable
[19:49] <gordonDrogon> go to your local euronics shop...

[20:21] <criten> What are you using?
[20:21] <gordonDrogon> bog-standard 7805.
[20:22] <criten> Oh yea.. that's just a linear regulator right? non-switching?

[20:30] <PigFlu> alright
[20:30] <grayb> Does anyone know how likely the USB issues are to be resolvable in software? It's hard to recommend this as a device platform in the current state.

[20:33] <mm0zct> and what keyboard/mouse?
[20:33] <mm0zct> it only happens with my logitech wireless keyboard and mouse
[20:33] <grayb> mm0zct: usually due to too many usb ports in use
[20:33] <mm0zct> it works fine with my Dell generic kbd+mouse
[20:34] <PigFlu> ok ifconfig showed up.. what i supposed to look for?
[20:34] <loadbang> grayb: I use VNC, loose connection when x loads.
[20:34] <PigFlu> cant see any IP on eth0
[20:34] <criten> So it doesnt have an ip? one sec..
[20:34] <SRCR> Suddenly makes sense why mu Pi connection sometimes freezes via the usb wifi connection :)

[21:10] <Hodapp> would be interesting to see how well ASM can do it though - particularly if you have to be doing this to 4 pins, not just 1
[21:10] <clever> Hodapp: from that link, it looks like python/c are the only choices if i wanted to userspace bit-bang an ir blaster
[21:10] <mm0zct> it's still 1 register though
[21:11] <Hodapp> yeah, true
[21:11] <mm0zct> you just make sure all the bits are set in advance
[21:11] <clever> python sits right at the target freq, at max cpu usage
[21:11] <Hodapp> clever: hrm? thought your target freq was 68 MHz
[21:11] <clever> was just thinking about another project
[21:12] <clever> pre-calculating the 68.9mhz data wont be simple, because the interface does not allow stopping

[21:12] <mm0zct> "I'm directly driving an LCD" would have done :p
[21:12] <Hodapp> hmm, I'd worry there about synchronization if you have the kernel butting in sometimes
[21:13] <clever> not directly, the driver chips handle the actual AC waveform for each pixel
[21:13] <clever> Hodapp: which is why i'm leaning towards kernel for the final poc
[21:13] <mm0zct> what does the panel do if the clock stops?
[21:14] <clever> mm0zct: i'm guessing the lcd will just go blank
[21:14] <mm0zct> i think you need an FPGA or dedicated controller for this imho
[21:14] <mm0zct> the Pi isn't fast enough
[21:15] <clever> mm0zct: my first idea was to use the DSI connector
[21:15] <clever> but thats routed directly to the video core
[21:15] <clever> because thats exactly what i should be using
[21:16] <mm0zct> yeah, that's the point of the dsi connector, but broadcom haven't released anything about using it yet
[21:16] <mm0zct> somewhat annoyingly
[21:17] <clever> also, the DSI connector is 1 data lane short
[21:17] <clever> it doesnt have enough differential pairs to drive this lcd
[21:17] <mm0zct> leave the bottom bit 0?
[21:17] <mm0zct> assuming it's one colour channel at a time
[21:18] <clever> i think its one color per data lane
[21:18] <clever> so i would be missing an entire color
[21:18] <clever> ive got 2 lcd's i could drive, and this pdf is missing the exact specs on what is in the LVDS
[21:19] <clever> i remember the other one having better details, but i think just reaching the dotclock should come first
[21:19] <clever> if i cant meet the dot clock, its imposible

[22:27] <gordonDrogon> yea, this is just a one-off though - bit of fun for a couple of raspberryjam events - Penzance tomorow and Bristol/Bath on Monday.
