IRC Log for 2012-09-19

Timestamps are in GMT/BST.

[0:00] <tapas> thhey have the ones in my delta66 for example.
[0:00] <tapas> judging from the spec it seems to have an I2S mode..
[0:00] <trevorman> you'll need to design a PCB for that
[0:01] <trevorman> usually they're controlled via I2C and send the audio data by I2S
[0:01] <tapas> i have a friend who has some experience with the fiddly part of the whole endeavour
[0:02] * Dmole (~chatzilla@69-196-131-203.dsl.teksavvy.com) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[0:02] <tapas> i'm just researching what our options are at all :D
[0:02] * Leeky_afk is now known as Leeky
[0:02] <tapas> and he can design boards, though i'm not sure up to what complexity
[0:02] <trevorman> ah okay. that is fine then :)
[0:03] <trevorman> it shouldn't be too bad
[0:03] <trevorman> its not some horrific BGA monster with a thousand connections that requires 4 layer PCBs
[0:04] <tapas> there also needs to be some glue, like a preamp to raise instrument level to line, etc..
[0:04] <tapas> but that stuff even i could probably solder together :D
[0:04] <trevorman> yeah that'd be easy especially if you've got a PCB anyway
[0:04] * nils_2 (~nils_2@unaffiliated/nils-2/x-2480262) Quit (Quit: WeeChat 0.3.9-rc2)
[0:05] <trevorman> you'll want to see what the recommendations are for that codec though. like how to design the board and whether it wants anything special to minimise interference etc...
[0:05] <tapas> i'll keep that in mind
[0:05] <trevorman> I don't do analog so all that stuff is a mystery to me :)
[0:05] <tapas> hehe :D
[0:06] <tapas> for years i have this dream of having my own little linux system with me that i can use as looper, efx unit, etc..
[0:06] * kcj (~casey@unaffiliated/kcj) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:06] <tapas> just as a stompboard with maybe some midi pedal for extra functionality.
[0:07] <tapas> CPU power is a limit though, of course..
[0:09] <tapas> BTW: is there a reasonable simple way to emulate some hardware roughly similar to the RPB?
[0:09] * aphadke (~Adium@2620:101:8003:200:10ab:27d7:9620:b1b7) Quit (Quit: Leaving.)

[0:33] <ech0s7> i have installed tighvnc
[0:33] <ech0s7> server and client
[0:33] <[SLB]> yes
[0:33] <[SLB]> on the pi run vncserver, it should guide you with the config
[0:34] <steve_rox> i was able to get vnc on the pi
[0:34] <[SLB]> eheh
[0:34] <ech0s7> [SLB]: from root ?
[0:34] <steve_rox> but i was then unable to get the pi gui display on the local display
[0:34] <[SLB]> no user is fine
[0:35] <[SLB]> what did you see then on the viewer?
[0:35] <steve_rox> iam attempting to power 2 usb ports from the same power source
[0:35] <steve_rox> not sure if im doing something bad

[0:38] <steve_rox> i have a drop down regulator outputting just under 5v
[0:38] * halfhalo (halfhalo@nasadmin/webteam/halfhalo) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:38] <steve_rox> hopeing that would run off it
[0:38] <[SLB]> eheh can try i guess
[0:38] <steve_rox> its like conecting a usb port in parallel
[0:39] <steve_rox> without data cables
[0:39] <ech0s7> [SLB]: i'm connected :)
[0:39] * scummos (~sven@p57B1A7FB.dip.t-dialin.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:39] <[SLB]> should work i guess if it can supply enough current
[0:39] <[SLB]> nice ech0s7 :)
[0:39] <ech0s7> but i see this: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/278026/Schermata%2009-2456190%20alle%2000.36.49.png
[0:40] <ech0s7> gray blank screen
[0:40] <[SLB]> it's twm i guess, moment
[0:40] <[SLB]> have to edit a config file
[0:41] <steve_rox> the 3.5 lcd uses low ma to function , it should work i guess

[0:45] * AC`97 prepares
[0:45] * AC`97 isn't prepared yet.
[0:46] <steve_rox> werid on my image search i found a image showing how to cross connect the polly fuzes on the pi
[0:46] <AC`97> steve_rox: bypess*
[0:46] * luigy (~luigy@lawn-gw.rutgers.edu) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:46] <AC`97> bypass***
[0:46] <steve_rox> double mind screw
[0:46] <AC`97> ind33d
[0:46] <[SLB]> yes the crossing doesn't really matter
[0:47] <AC`97> why did the chicken cross the road then???
[0:47] <ech0s7> [SLB]: or i could change xinitrc
[0:47] <[SLB]> just too long a wire lol
[0:47] <[SLB]> yes ech0s7 i guess so
[0:47] <steve_rox> is there a irc client for the pi?
[0:47] <thrawed> steve_rox: irssi
[0:48] <steve_rox> sudo apt-get irssi?
[0:48] <[SLB]> ya
[0:48] <thrawed> yes
[0:48] <steve_rox> thanks ill make a note
[0:48] <steve_rox> bet it dont have a bloody gui tho
[0:48] <[SLB]> it's textual
[0:48] <AC`97> steve_rox: weechat
[0:48] <[SLB]> yea
[0:48] <AC`97> ncurses be gooood
[0:48] <steve_rox> weechat?
[0:48] <AC`97> weeeee~
[0:48] <AC`97> chat
[0:49] <steve_rox> your insane
[0:49] <[SLB]> XD
[0:49] <thrawed> steve_rox: you asked the pi.. the pi doesn't do x very well so why would the hell would you want a gui for your irc client?
[0:49] <AC`97> all mine!
[0:49] <steve_rox> linux progs have too much type writer in them ;-)
[0:49] <steve_rox> gui is sometimes faster
[0:49] <AC`97> ^ wot
[0:49] <Hodapp> In an HTTP PUT, is it conventional that a query string could contain data to submit, instead of the request's payload?
[0:50] <thrawed> steve_rox: gui is never faster
[0:50] <steve_rox> is if your drag dropping files :-P
[0:50] <thrawed> nobody drag drops anymore
[0:50] <thrawed> it's all ctrl+x ctrl+v
[0:51] <AC`97> control+u, control+y
[0:51] <steve_rox> oh right i do that myself :-P
[0:51] <AC`97> wheee wheee wheee wheee wheee wheee wheee wheee
[0:51] <steve_rox> heh
[0:51] <[SLB]> i find myself now doing more shift+ins than ctrl+v
[0:51] <steve_rox> need to figure out this usb crap before i risk using it
[0:51] <AC`97> oh wow, never knew about shift+insert. interesting
[0:51] <thrawed> steve_rox: you've never used a usb device before?
[0:52] <[SLB]> eheh
[0:52] <steve_rox> i shall resume my search on google i guess
[0:52] <thrawed> google > irc
[0:52] <AC`97> steve_rox: watch out. if that linear regulator goes pop, your pi might see the regulator's input voltage
[0:52] * aphadke (~Adium@c-71-198-5-34.hsd1.ca.comcast.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:53] <steve_rox> its not a linear regulator as such
[0:53] <trevorman> Hodapp: it can do but that isn't normal to do so
[0:53] <AC`97> steve_rox: what is it??
[0:53] * virunga (~virunga@ Quit (Quit: Sto andando via)
[0:53] <steve_rox> its described as a drop down converter
[0:54] <steve_rox> it has a pot on it for changeing voltage out
[0:54] <[SLB]> ech0s7, i just uncommented /etc/X11/Xsession i think, i don't remember how my default xstartup file looked like
[0:54] <ech0s7> now i'm preparing to install xbmc
[0:54] <[SLB]> the pi is faster than my netbook ._.
[0:54] <ech0s7> [SLB]: thanks!
[0:54] <[SLB]> yw:)
[0:55] * mentar (~mentar@94-195-22-204.zone9.bethere.co.uk) Quit (Quit: Leaving.)
[0:55] <thrawed> [SLB]: your netbook probably has acclerated x though
[0:55] <[SLB]> nah :\ intel500poo
[0:56] <chithead> downgrade to xorg 1.9 and kernel 2.6, then you can install the intel emgd ;)
[0:56] <[SLB]> poulsbo drivers never worked, but my atom processor is so slow anyway
[0:56] <[SLB]> oh hm
[0:57] <Hodapp> trevorman: ahh, okay
[0:57] <[SLB]> i should try that thanks eheh
[0:57] <chithead> the psb drivers are even worse, I think they only support xorg 1.7
[0:57] <Hodapp> trevorman: in this case the data is simple enough that there seems to be little point to put it in the payload
[0:57] <[SLB]> oh :|
[0:57] <trevorman> Hodapp: you still doing a POST on it?
[0:57] * luigy (~luigy@lawn-gw.rutgers.edu) Quit (Quit: Computer has gone to sleep.)
[0:58] <trevorman> if so then yeah thats fine
[0:58] <[SLB]> ech0s7, https://github.com/RB-tomaz/xbmc-rdp-tomaz
[0:58] <trevorman> kludging it with a GET is generally bad as it sounds like this actually changes state which you shouldn't do
[0:59] <ech0s7> [SLB]: it's for debian
[0:59] <ech0s7> i'm using archlinux
[0:59] <[SLB]> ah right eheh
[0:59] <steve_rox> http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/221120700614 - the power conversion device i spoke of
[0:59] <ech0s7> but it requires a desktop environment ?
[0:59] <ech0s7> or only X ?
[0:59] <[SLB]> no
[1:00] <steve_rox> seems to work well with no heat waste
[1:00] <[SLB]> hm maybe only x, but it has a standalone binary, not sure
[1:00] <[SLB]> i have x and so it works, not sure

[1:01] <Hodapp> trevorman: PUT, not POST
[1:01] <Hodapp> for minor semantic differences I suppose
[1:01] <ech0s7> [SLB]: you can start it from TTY console ?
[1:02] <ech0s7> and works ?
[1:02] * bertrik (~quassel@rockbox/developer/bertrik) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[1:02] <[SLB]> yes
[1:02] <ech0s7> so it require only X i thing
[1:02] <[SLB]> i guess so yes
[1:02] <trevorman> Hodapp: yeah sorry. brainfart there.
[1:02] <[SLB]> the de surely is not needed

[1:40] <steve_rox> im still learning how to use this text based irc client
[1:40] <IT_Sean> What client?
[1:41] <steve_rox> irssi i think its called
[1:41] <steve_rox> controling it over ssh
[1:41] * fredreichbier (~fred@unaffiliated/fredreichbier) Quit (Quit: Verlassend)
[1:41] <IT_Sean> type /msg nickserv help
[1:41] <steve_rox> im not that desperate yet ;-)
[1:42] <IT_Sean> the commands to reg a nick are the same in irssi as they are in every other client
[1:42] <steve_rox> trying to set screen name at moment
[1:42] * ech0s7 (~ech0s7@ Quit (Quit: Sto andando via)
[1:43] <AC`97> oh joy. my rpi's ssh is being bruteforced
[1:43] <IT_Sean> awesome. :D
[1:44] <AC`97> it's making my load spike
[1:44] <steve_rox> you left the ssh port open to the inernets?
[1:44] <AC`97> http://rpi.reboxed.net/
[1:44] <steve_rox> interents
[1:44] <AC`97> indeed.
[1:44] <AC`97> internets*
[1:44] <steve_rox> why?
[1:44] * scummos (~sven@p57B1A7FB.dip.t-dialin.net) Quit (Ping timeout: 245 seconds)
[1:44] <AC`97> because i needs ssh access
[1:44] <Vlad> to ssh in over the internet, most likely
[1:44] <AC`97> ^
[1:45] <Vlad> sounds like someone needs denyhosts or fail2ban
[1:45] <Vlad> or similar
[1:45] <steve_rox> script kiddys got yo ssh?
[1:45] <Vlad> your rpi has no ponies :(
[1:45] <AC`97> indeed :|
[1:45] <IT_Sean> He wanted to internet while he internetted, so he put an internet in his internet.
[1:46] <IT_Sean> ... or something.
[1:46] <steve_rox> why would anyone attack a pi? unless they were pi scanning for open ssh ports
[1:46] <hamitron> pi scanning? :|
[1:46] <Vlad> it's just an IP to scan to them
[1:46] <Vlad> until they get in

[2:15] <misterhat> i was wondering about that as well
[2:15] <misterhat> whether it'd be worth it or not
[2:15] <hamitron> I see no point tbh
[2:15] <hamitron> sure it is fine as it is
[2:16] <steve_rox> i pulled a small heatsink off a dead motherboard and put it on
[2:16] <thrawed> steve_rox: how big is your e-peen?
[2:16] <trevorman> its not necessary assuming you're not doing heroic overclocking or overvolting
[2:16] <steve_rox> my what? :-O
[2:16] <thrawed> steve_rox: if you're not satisfied with your current e-peen size, then you could add a heatsink, otherwise there's no point
[2:16] <hamitron> and if you are overclocking..... if you need that speed, you should get a different device? ;)
[2:17] <steve_rox> define e-peen
[2:17] <misterhat> well i don't see the harm in heatsinks
[2:17] <thrawed> steve_rox: internet ego
[2:18] <steve_rox> im not familure with it

[2:20] <Dyme21> Seems alright then...
[2:20] <steve_rox> i did supect that was the definition of it
[2:21] <steve_rox> so your implying adding a heatsinik creates a electronic viagra effect?
[2:21] <Dyme21> Good guess then ;)
[2:22] <steve_rox> well i thought coolent may be a good idea for it
[2:22] <thrawed> steve_rox: just dump it in a tank of mineral oil
[2:23] <steve_rox> good idea

[4:47] <misterhat> ok what is that
[4:47] <AC`97> it's a... pibox!
[4:48] <misterhat> explain
[4:48] <AC`97> misterhat: http://goo.gl/JdDt1
[4:48] <yehnan> AC`97: wow...what's that?
[4:48] <AaronMickDee> Welp
[4:48] <AC`97> yehnan: it's a fan stuck onto my pibox
[4:48] <misterhat> ah ha
[4:48] <misterhat> so you did put heatsinks on
[4:48] <AC`97> (and a lump of brass balanced on top of the fan)
[4:49] <misterhat> is it overclocked?
[4:49] <AC`97> possibly.
[4:49] <AC`97> but i lowered it due to sd card corruption
[4:49] <misterhat> how'd that happen
[4:49] <AC`97> no clue
[4:50] <misterhat> ok well i'll admit that's a very pretty pibox
[4:50] <AC`97> i made half the usb port hole by hand :]
[4:50] <AC`97> it took hours
[4:51] <AC`97> then i did the rest with a grinder in like <20 seconds
[4:52] <misterhat> ic
[4:52] <misterhat> so what are you going to do
[4:52] <misterhat> with your pibox
[4:52] <AC`97> motorcyclePi
[4:52] <misterhat> and does it currently run arch
[4:52] <AC`97> indeed. i run arch on everything.
[4:52] <misterhat> nice
[4:52] <misterhat> i approve

[4:54] <dan408-> yes
[4:54] <AC`97> i prefer weechat. weeeeee~
[4:54] <misterhat> using pidgin atm
[4:54] <dan408-> #bitchx

[4:55] <misterhat> bitchx is hosted on canadian domain?
[4:55] <dan408-> BitchX was created by a Canadian :)
[4:55] <misterhat> nice
[4:55] <misterhat> i am a fellow canadian
[4:55] <dan408-> hence why when you do /wi nick and it says (Canada pHEAR)
[4:55] <dan408-> if they are using a .ca host
[4:56] <dan408-> are you using fedora?
[4:56] <AC`97> . . .

[4:56] <dan408-> sorry not base, but it's in the stable repos.
[4:56] <misterhat> alright where's "hostserv" on freenode
[4:57] <dan408-> hostserv?
[4:57] <dan408-> you mean nickserv?
[4:57] <chithead> or chanserv?
[4:57] <misterhat> can nickserv change hostname?
[4:57] <dan408-> if you need a cloak register your nick and join #freenode and ask for one.
[4:57] <chithead> you can get an irc cloak once you are identified with nickserv
[4:57] <dan408-> cloaks are free.
[4:57] <misterhat> oh
[4:57] <misterhat> k
[4:57] <misterhat> well i use rizon usually
[4:57] <misterhat> they've got a hostserv
[4:57] <misterhat> where you can request one automatically
[4:58] <dan408-> to get an affiliated cloak you must be a member of that project.
[4:58] <misterhat> ah so no personal ones then
[4:58] <AC`97> false.
[4:58] <dan408-> so im a member of bitchx and fedora projects and my nickserv nick is vicodan
[4:58] <misterhat> lame
[4:58] <misterhat> alright

[7:39] <btcbuy314> my pi seems to be freezing up a lot, anyone know why this could be happening? yesterday my pi wouldnt let me edit any files, unless i used sudo, if i tried to edit with vim it would say "write error (file system full?)" so i took out the card, and went to gparted on my laptop and resized the partition to take up full space and gave it over an extra gig, and that fixed the write problems, but now it keeps freezing at ran
[7:41] * wiiguy (~fake@unaffiliated/wiiguy) has joined #raspberrypi
[7:41] <bircoe> one of the more common issues people have is power supply problems and insufficient current capability
[7:43] <btcbuy314> what would be sufficient? and can anyone recommend one? i have my moms ipad supply i can use temporarily if thats the problem, but what volt and amperage do i need? and does anyone know a good cheap one on amazon?
[7:43] <bircoe> 700+mA
[7:44] * deffrag (~Dedec@unaffiliated/deffrag) has joined #raspberrypi
[7:44] <bircoe> My Pi idles at 500mA with no USB devices plugged in...
[7:46] <btcbuy314> how can you tell how much mA its using up
[7:47] <btcbuy314> and is 5 volts the recommended? could i harm my pi by going higher or lower, what would be optimal?
[7:47] <btcbuy314> and is there any risk of having higher than 700 ma like say 2.1 mA or like 3 or 4 mA
[7:47] <bircoe> you need to place a multimeter or ammeter in line with the power supply
[7:47] <bircoe> yep 5v
[7:48] <bircoe> no risk higher
[7:48] <btcbuy314> ok
[7:48] <bircoe> if you have a 5A supply and the Pi only wants 500mA it will only draw 500mA from the supply
[7:49] <ln-> in general undervoltage breaks up devices much more easily than overvoltage
[7:49] <btcbuy314> so if i have a non powered hub and i plug it into the pi, and have like a mouse, arduino, keyboard, and other stuff plugged in, all i need is a high amperage 5v power supply?
[7:49] <bircoe> correct
[7:49] <bircoe> wait
[7:49] <btcbuy314> so no need for a powered hub, just higher power supply
[7:49] <bircoe> power supply for the Pi or hub?
[7:50] <btcbuy314> for the pi
[7:50] <bircoe> no you still need a powered hub
[7:50] <btcbuy314> why?
[7:50] <bircoe> unless you have a new revision board that has no poly fuses
[7:50] <bircoe> because the USB ports have 140mA polyfuses on them
[7:51] <btcbuy314> so they have a maximum of 140 mA on them?
[7:51] <bircoe> yep
[7:52] <bircoe> so if you plug in a non powered4 port hub thats roughly 25mA worth of current available at each port... counting some for the hub itself
[7:53] <bircoe> assuming you try and connect 4 devices

[8:06] <bircoe> any should be fine
[8:06] <btcbuy314> then id need a connector too, how hard are they to wire up?
[8:07] <btcbuy314> or actually all i need is a usb converter
[8:07] <btcbuy314> psp plug female > usb female
[8:07] <btcbuy314> not converter but just an adapter with psp plug female and usb female on the ends

[8:21] <btcbuy314> for people in third world countries that only have reg tv
[8:21] <btcbuy314> its cheap to add so its worth it, its to bring computing to those countries mainly anyway
[8:21] <megatog615> also, it is much easier to connect composite to something
[8:22] <megatog615> and it's analog
[8:22] <megatog615> hdmi requires some possibly expensive hardware to connect to it
[8:22] <dan408-> are there really countries that haven't discovered svideo yet or something?
[8:22] <megatog615> basically, composite is great for homebrew
[8:22] <btcbuy314> whats the max resolution you can get with component analog
[8:22] <dan408-> and im guessing i need a case for this?
[8:23] <Syliss> 480p
[8:23] <Syliss> maybe i
[8:23] <megatog615> Syliss: nope, just i, lol
[8:23] <dan408-> lol
[8:23] <megatog615> not even s-video does p
[8:23] <dan408-> this thing is a mega drop.
[8:23] <dan408-> err
[8:23] <dan408-> drop/trip
[8:23] <PiRocketman> component is three separate connectors and you can get full 1080p
[8:23] <dan408-> you really don't get it until it's in your hands
[8:23] <Syliss> well component is diff then composite
[8:23] <btcbuy314> i thought 480 p was higher than 480 i , it isnt?
[8:24] <PiRocketman> composite on the other hand is one rca cable and you get analog NTSC
[8:24] <dan408-> yes: this is RCA video out.
[8:24] <dan408-> yup
[8:24] <dan408-> i think it is 480i
[8:24] <dan408-> if that
[8:24] <dan408-> i remember my wii and using RCA and then upgrading to component cables
[8:24] <PiRocketman> analog connections like that only really define the vertical lines of resolution
[8:25] <megatog615> PiRocketman: component's highest capability is 1080i, in my experience
[8:25] <PiRocketman> a really good quality analog NTSC signal is maybe the equivalent of VGA
[8:25] <dan408-> my real question is are there really countries where they haven't gotten past RCA video yet?
[8:25] <megatog615> 1080p is just way too much data for component

[8:26] <dan408-> and even those old tv's still at least have some kind of alternative like svideo or component
[8:26] <PiRocketman> and a lot of developing countries tend to get our e-waste / hand me downs
[8:26] <Syliss> dan408- yes, and you have to understand that a lot of people still have tube tvs either as a backup or just cause they didn't throw them out
[8:26] <PiRocketman> I wish they had included VGA, but they didn't
[8:26] * tehafk is now known as tehtrb
[8:27] <PiRocketman> I am not sure if the system on a chip they are using even supports VGA
[8:27] <dan408-> yeah vga would have been great
[8:27] <Syliss> via is big and isn't supported by what they have on the board
[8:27] <Syliss> vga*
[8:27] <dan408-> yeah vga has been around since like the first desktop pc
[8:27] <btcbuy314> does using component cables on a wii increase resolution? or just make it look better? does it look perfectly clear on a 1080p tv?
[8:27] <PiRocketman> I am more excited about the cubieboard, which has VGA via pinheaders at least
[8:27] <Syliss> no btcbuy314
[8:27] <Syliss> it looks terrible
[8:28] <PiRocketman> Wii does at best 480p over component
[8:28] <dan408-> correct PiRocketman
[8:28] <dan408-> it is 480p
[8:28] <PiRocketman> Over other connections it is limited to 480i, I believe
[8:28] <dan408-> yessir
[8:28] <btcbuy314> so wii would still look better on a tube tv then with component on 1080p
[8:29] * SgrA (~pi@unaffiliated/sgra) Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[8:29] <dan408-> i mean cmon, you include an RCA video out might as well include PS2 mouse/keyboard
[8:29] <megatog615> btcbuy314: as an owner of a wii and component cables for it, there is no reason not to use them
[8:29] <dan408-> btcbuy314: that is not true.
[8:29] <Syliss> it looks okay on a 720p tv, which i have
[8:29] <megatog615> the picture difference is night and day, even if it's just going from 480i to 480p
[8:29] <dan408-> ^^
[8:29] <PiRocketman> Some 1080p displays have built in scalers that will help make an image look better when stretched to fit
[8:30] <megatog615> component just destroys composite, even at the same resolution
[8:30] <Syliss> also depends on the size of the tv
[8:30] <dan408-> i will say
[8:30] <megatog615> because the picture doesn't suck, the TV can scale it up much better
[8:30] <PiRocketman> Yeah, color clarity and whatnot is also important.
[8:30] <dan408-> going from RCA -> component on Wii is a HUGE difference on any TV
[8:30] <PiRocketman> Composite over a single RCA is awful
[8:30] * TimRiker (~TimRiker@bzflag/projectlead/TimRiker) Quit (Quit: This space intentionally left blank)
[8:30] <megatog615> it is a huge difference on every monitor
[8:30] <bircoe> Dan39, don't be a clown, they included composite video out because the SOC supports it, and figured some people will get use out of it.
[8:31] <dan408-> was that directed at me?
[8:31] <bircoe> errr yes :)
[8:31] <dan408-> and what is the SOC?
[8:31] <megatog615> dan408-: Dan39 is clearly a clown
[8:31] <dan408-> sorry im totally new here
[8:31] <PiRocketman> I used an old 5" monitor from a previous carputer project tonight with my Pi while at a hackerspace
[8:31] <PiRocketman> Showing of XBMC
[8:31] <dan408-> i just got my raspberry pi in the mail today, i've been hanging here but just got my hands on actual hardware
[8:32] <bircoe> the SOC is the main processor of the device... System on Chip
[8:32] <dan408-> oh ok
[8:32] <PiRocketman> They didn't have any monitors handy with hdmi/dvi and I wasn't going to lug one down there
[8:32] <dan408-> got it
[8:32] <dan408-> and the SOC is ARM based correct?
[8:32] <PiRocketman> I am glad they have it onboard
[8:32] <dan408-> armv8?
[8:32] <bircoe> it didn't add anything to the cost of the device bar the physical connectors
[8:32] <PiRocketman> Yeah, It is a ARMv6
[8:32] <dan408-> PiRocketman: have you actually used it?
[8:32] <bircoe> yes the SOC is the Broadcom ARM chip
[8:32] <dan408-> the composite video?
[8:32] <dan408-> bircoe: which broadcom?
[8:32] <PiRocketman> with some features (but not all) from ARMv7
[8:33] <Hoerie> I've used it on my secondary tv
[8:33] <PiRocketman> ARMV8 isn't really out yet
[8:33] <dan408-> i have 4 arm devices now
[8:33] <bircoe> but it's called a SOC because it's more than just a CPU, it's almost the complete system minus the ethernet adapter
[8:33] <PiRocketman> But ARMv7 is the instruction set in use on most phones chipsets these days
[8:33] <dan408-> 1 tegra = tf300t, 1 = hp touchpad, 1 = evo shift (snapdragon2) and now the rpi
[8:33] <Hoerie> composite looks ok once you get the overscan sorted
[8:33] <bircoe> Broadcom BCM2835
[8:33] <dan408-> bircoe: what does this have that AMD Llano APU doesnt have?
[8:34] <dan408-> (the soc)
[8:34] <bircoe> ARM1176JZF-S
[8:34] <bircoe> you can't compare them
[8:34] <PiRocketman> The ARMv6 version they are using is somewhat problematic, because most development for ARM in linux targets the older ARMv4 instructions which the ARMv6 supports or the ARMv7 instructions which it doesn't
[8:34] <dan408-> bircoe: why not.
[8:34] <bircoe> i mean you can but it's not a fair comparison
[8:34] <dan408-> why
[8:34] <dan408-> please enlighten me
[8:35] <PiRocketman> It is a bit like running an OS designed for the instructions of a 386 computer, but having all the features found in a Pentium.
[8:35] <dan408-> lol
[8:35] <dan408-> ok i got it
[8:36] <PiRocketman> So, there is a distribution derived from Debian Linux where they have recompiled most everything to make the best use of the features the chip does have.
[8:36] <PiRocketman> It is called Raspbian "Wheezy"
[8:36] <PiRocketman> It is probably what you want to run if you want to fool around with the Pi
[8:37] <bircoe> they're a different architecture to begin with, AMD Llano is x86 where ARM is Risc
[8:37] <dan408-> i dont like debian
[8:37] <dan408-> im going to use fedora remix
[8:37] * Milos|Netbook (~Milos@pdpc/supporter/student/milos) has joined #raspberrypi
[8:38] <megatog615> bircoe: some would say that both AMD's and Intel's modern CPUs are x86 on top of RISC :)
[8:38] <PiRocketman> You are welcome to use whatever you like, but expect to be doing a LOT of work cross compiling stuff if the distro you use doesn't support ARM.
[8:38] <dan408-> PiRocketman i got this from redhat inc.

[8:41] <steve_rox> did ssd drives price just crash or something? suddenly every tech website is bombing me with offers on em
[8:42] <dan408-> where can i get fedora remix
[8:42] <PiRocketman> They have definitely gone down substantially recently
[8:42] <dan408-> steve_rox: they are dropping in price
[8:42] <steve_rox> i wonder why
[8:42] <steve_rox> its allmost tempting i guess
[8:42] <PiRocketman> I here there is major flooding in Thailand again. HDD prices still aren't what they were pre 2011 flooding
[8:42] <dan408-> i have 3 SSD's
[8:43] <dan408-> 2 corsair force 3 120GB and 1 kingston 64gb sata 2
[8:43] <bircoe> 4 :)
[8:43] <dan408-> bircoe: my motherboard still only goes sata 2
[8:43] * Meatballs|Away is now known as Meatballs
[8:43] <dan408-> AMD Phenom 2 x4 965 + asus crosshair 3
[8:43] <bircoe> mine does SATA3 and boots stupid fast
[8:43] <steve_rox> not sure if its something i should bother with or not
[8:43] <dan408-> im waiting for the next AMD chipset with PCIE3
[8:44] <dan408-> bircoe: the 2 force 3's are in software raid 1 and yeah, it boots stupid fast, would love to boot it in sata 3 but im not buying a new mobo until AMD supports pcie3
[8:44] <PiRocketman> dan408, I would really recommend Raspbian unless you have a religious preference for Fedora or something
[8:44] <dan408-> PiRocketman: it is religious /whois dan408-
[8:45] <dan408-> i mean i got this thing for free from redhat and then im gunna slap debian on it? cmon
[8:45] <PiRocketman> You can have more than one SD card :)

[8:48] <PiRocketman> Some of the newer SSD basically max out the SATA bus at around 500 MB/s
[8:48] <dan408-> bircoe: looks like your drive is only sata 2
[8:49] <dan408-> PiRocketman: correct. i get the same performance as bircoe
[8:49] <bircoe> it does bench a bit slow
[8:49] <PiRocketman> A lot of SSDs are going forward with connections through the PCIe bus as SATA isn't fast enough
[8:49] <bircoe> but much faster than SATA2 disks
[8:49] <dan408-> of course
[8:49] <dan408-> but bircoe
[8:49] <dan408-> here
[8:49] <bircoe> SATA2 => https://dl.dropbox.com/u/14910680/Disk%20Benchmarks/Patriot%20Torqx%202%20-%2032gb%20-%20SSD.png
[8:50] <PiRocketman> The real benefit to SSDs is their extremely low random io latency when compared to HDDs
[8:50] <dan408-> no
[8:50] <PiRocketman> thats what really makes them so much snappier than hard drives. They don't take 10ms to seek to a new sector.

[8:51] <Pickley> Does anyone else experience sound popping when tracks change on their Pi?
[8:51] <dan408-> anyways
[8:51] <dan408-> i believe satellit mentioned they were running fedora trimslice on their rpi
[8:51] <Jck_true> I'm just still scared by flash wear out - I've had too many flash sticks get horribly slow on me over time - Espcially if i wrote to them often
[8:51] <dan408-> so i guess that's what I will try
[8:52] <bircoe> Jck_true, by the time it starts to wear newer cheaper faster drives will be out
[8:53] <PiRocketman> I am not really worried about wearing out my flash. Modern flash drives have very good wear leveling and also support TRIM, so their performance doesn't diminish much over time.
[8:53] <Jck_true> bircoe: I know - And I'm guessing the controllers have gotten atlot better (And you shouldn't really compare with year old no brand usb sticks
[8:53] <PiRocketman> Under normal desktop use, a SSD should last a long time.
[8:54] <Jck_true> Back in the day my 2GB stick could take 1 gb in less than a minut - Now it takes ~15min
[8:54] * mgottschlag (~quassel@reactos/tester/phoenix64) has joined #raspberrypi
[8:54] <PiRocketman> The other nice thing is most of the better drives can actually tell you how worn the flash is getting, so you can clone the drive prior to it wearing out.
[8:54] <PiRocketman> Predictable longevity.
[8:54] <dan408-> man
[8:54] <dan408-> fedora remix is really hidden
[8:55] <bircoe> I wrote some data to an old Dell 256MB USB key we had at work... data went on at 2.3MB/s... most of the current cheapies can only do those speeds

[8:56] <PiRocketman> It picks up far too much electrical noise for other components
[8:56] <dan408-> yeah i definitely need a case for this thing
[8:56] <PiRocketman> Get yourself a cheap USB soundcard off the supported list or use HDMI audio output.
[8:56] <dan408-> i almost spilled beer all over it
[8:56] <Pickley> yeah, usb card might be the key
[8:56] <dan408-> hdmi audio

[8:57] <Jck_true> I'm curious to see what the extra output on the Rev2 could do with sound

[8:58] <Jck_true> or you could just take the slim farnell box - Open it in both ends - And call it a case
[8:58] <PiRocketman> dan408- The nice thing about Raspian is it compiles everything with support for the Pi's hard floating point unit
[8:58] <PiRocketman> Raspbian, rather
[8:59] <PiRocketman> A stock ARMv6 distro won't do that
[8:59] <dan408-> PiRocketman: sounds too easy and again, it's a religious thing

[9:04] <dan408-> oh i love you
[9:04] <dan408-> this i WILL run.
[9:04] <PiRocketman> You can run it, but you are better off with something ultra light weight like LXDE
[9:04] <PiRocketman> which is the default for Raspbian
[9:04] <dan408-> i know
[9:04] <PiRocketman> I think MATE takes up too much in the way of resources
[9:05] <PiRocketman> Understand that there isn't any accelerated X yet
[9:05] <Jck_true> if only X11 would get hardware accelerated :( *crosses fingers*
[9:05] <dan408-> i dont want things to be easy. that's why I run fedora in the first place. remember PiRocketman? ;)
[9:05] <PiRocketman> So X windows performance is in general pretty awful
[9:05] <dan408-> Jck_true: i thought it already was.
[9:06] <dan408-> i guess that's what Xorg 1.13/14 is going to be.
[9:06] <Jck_true> dan408-: Nope :/ It hogs cpu badly
[9:06] <PiRocketman> Here are some notes on the progress towards accelerating X
[9:06] <dan408-> oka6y
[9:06] <dan408-> so i'll have to go fedora 18

[9:06] <dan408-> xorg*
[9:06] <dan408-> and then manually recompile the linux kernel

[9:32] <Pickley> :P
[9:32] <Pickley> Means I should be able to power the Pi and speakers off it
[9:33] <PiRocketman> Most of the tablet chargers seem to be 2 amps these days
[9:34] <PiRocketman> The charger for the HP touchpad was nice because it was like 5.2 volts, so it compensates somewhat from the voltage drop you get from the micro USB cable

[9:35] <PiRocketman> I wouldn't use anything but a high quality 2 amp charger for the Pi.
[9:35] <PiRocketman> I got crashing with a 1 amp OEM phone charger I was using.
[9:35] <tapas> hah, ok, got it to boot with a different kernel
[9:35] <Pickley> Can't plug the speakers into the Pi as they have a batter.
[9:35] <Pickley> lol
[9:36] <Pickley> so need to split the charger cord into two plugs for this

[9:41] <bircoe> PiRocketman, USB cable isn't an issue when you do this: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/14910680/RPi/Pi%20Power%20Mod.1024.jpg
[9:41] <PiRocketman> Did you wire in a power switch in addition to the barrel connector?
[9:42] <bircoe> nope but that's a really good idea.
[9:42] <PiRocketman> I really should do that, Micro USB is electrically and mechanically awful.
[9:42] <bircoe> electrically more so
[9:43] <bircoe> the conductors in cheap cables are usually soo thin they drop a silly amount of voltage

[9:43] <tapas> hmm, ok so it boots, but network's not working..
[9:43] <tapas> hmm hmm hmm. dns seems to be fine though
[9:43] <PiRocketman> I tried measured the drop on 3 cables before settling on one that only drops about .15 volts
[9:43] <PiRocketman> Definitely want one with thicker strands and not one just meant as a data cable.
[9:44] <tapas> is that a archlinux issue? so should i try a different image?

[9:58] <dan408-> chnops: neat, not sure if it will actually write the image though
[9:59] <dan408-> lets find out
[9:59] <PiRocketman> I ran mine with a mini SD - SD adapter.

[9:59] * zabomber (~zabomber@gateway/tor-sasl/zabomber) has joined #raspberrypi
[9:59] <PiRocketman> I would really recommend a class 10 card though
[9:59] <PiRocketman> a lot of cheap micros are class 2
[9:59] <bircoe> PiRocketman, it was a jack salvaged from an HP laptop... rather than a pair of single decent single wires it used 4x thinner wires, the ferrite core was on it inside the laptop
[9:59] <dan408-> i have a class 10 card
[9:59] <PiRocketman> Nope, I mean mini
[9:59] <bircoe> works well tho
[9:59] <dan408-> but my phone is using it.
[9:59] <dan408-> wtf is mini sd?
[10:00] * Leeky_afk is now known as Leeky

[10:01] <dan408-> okay
[10:01] <PiRocketman> All my full sized and micro sd cards were in use at the time, so I used the mini SD via and adapter to install Raspbian.
[10:01] <bircoe> I know the N800 used full size SD's
[10:02] <dan408-> let's see if this thing boots
[10:02] <dan408-> i just wrote raspbmc to my the card
[10:02] <PiRocketman> I've since moved on to a bunch of nice Transcend 32 GB Class 10 SDHC cards.
[10:03] <PiRocketman> I think it was the N810 that used mini SDHC.
[10:03] * dan408- inserts sdcard and hooks up hdmi cable and usb keyboard/mouse and see what happens
[10:03] <PiRocketman> I've owned all the Nokia tablets, 770, 800, 810 and my phone up till recently was a N900.

[10:19] <dan408_> i was using a microsoft wireless mouse
[10:19] <PiRocketman> I have a keyboard that keeps randomly disconnecting in Raspbmc
[10:19] <dan408_> also the rpi doesnt support 1gbe does it
[10:19] <PiRocketman> Direct wired with no built in hubs is probably the best.

[10:22] <PiRocketman> Will safe you a lot of trouble :)
[10:22] <dan408_> but it's 12v
[10:22] <dan408_> from the hp touchpad
[10:22] <dan408_> regardless
[10:23] <dan408_> my mobo better put out more than 500ma
[10:23] <dan408_> or im suing asus
[10:23] <dan408_> ok it's installing the root fs and telling me to grab a coffee at 1:21AM

[10:24] <PiRocketman> that would be a trick....
[10:24] <dan408_> yup
[10:25] <dan408_> anyways
[10:25] <dan408_> rspbmc should be installed soon enough
[10:25] <PiRocketman> I thought there was a 24 hour Fry's in the valley?
[10:25] <dan408_> no.
[10:25] <dan408_> who told you that?
[10:25] <trevorman> dan408_: USB 2 spec only guarantees 500mA so nothing for you to sue them for :P You need USB 3 ports which let the device draw up to 900mA. Its all supposed to be negotiated first by the device anyway which the RPi doesn't do.

[10:27] <PiRocketman> I'm live a couple miles away from the Microsoft campus.
[10:27] <PiRocketman> Seattle area could really use a 24/7 computer store
[10:27] <dan408_> seattle could use a lot of things
[10:27] <dan408_> like less rain.
[10:27] <PiRocketman> Or at least a vending machine for when you really need a MAX232 at 3 in the morning.
[10:28] <dan408_> you ever been to japan?
[10:28] <PiRocketman> Actually, we've had a near record dry summer
[10:28] <PiRocketman> Only in the airport on a stopover to/from China.
[10:28] <dan408_> it's not supposed to rain in the summer on the west coast
[10:28] <dan408_> lets see how your fall/winter is
[10:29] <PiRocketman> I love their idea of automats, coffin hotels, etc.
[10:29] <dan408_> well as i was saying
[10:29] <dan408_> you can buy anything in japan in a vending machine
[10:29] <PiRocketman> and use your cell phone to pay, no less.
[10:29] <dan408_> amazing innit
[10:30] <PiRocketman> NFC can't get here fast enough imo

[11:35] <martk100> fairuz: OK her goes . I am completely bogged down on lesson ok3. MY problem is link register(lr) I can not be sure what value goes into it when the program branches.

[11:38] <fairuz> LR will contain the return address
[11:42] <martk100> fairuz: Then why does the code push {lr} when the return address should already be stored?
[11:42] <fairuz> ok simple example
[11:43] <fairuz> let say you are in foo function (that is called by main)

[11:43] <fairuz> so in foo, the LR value is the address of the instruction just after the call of foo in main. Agree?
[11:44] <martk100> fairuz: Yes ok so far.
[11:44] <fairuz> ok
[11:44] <fairuz> let say right now in foo, you want to call a function called bar
[11:44] <martk100> fairuz: Ok
[11:44] * rellla (~Thunderbi@p5B079375.dip0.t-ipconnect.de) has joined #raspberrypi
[11:45] <fairuz> in bar, the LR will be the address of the instruction just after the call of bar in foo
[11:45] <fairuz> so before branching to bar, you need to push the old value of LR to the stack
[11:45] <tapas> or save it somewhere else :D
[11:45] <fairuz> so that, foo can go back to main safely :)
[11:45] <martk100> fairuz: Right that may be it.
[11:46] <fairuz> I'm not good at explaining, I hope you understand
[11:46] <martk100> fairuz: Ok I will ponder on that for a while.I may be back.
[11:46] <tapas> ok, i don't know arm assemble, but let me ask ssomething :D
[11:47] <tapas> so if you call to a location, arm automagically stores the return adress in LR?
[11:47] <tapas> now, if you chain calls LR would get overwritten, so you need to save and restore it..
[11:47] <fairuz> martk100: Always think of storing/restoring context of the registers
[11:47] <Vibe> here in my ARMs
[11:47] <tapas> why not use the stack? :D
[11:48] <martk100> tapas: push and pop use the stack.
[11:48] <fairuz> tapas: it uses stack
[11:48] <tapas> martk100: yes, my last question was rethorical, pedagogical :D
[11:49] <fairuz> we store old value of LR to the stack so that we can overwrite LR to the new one
[11:49] <tapas> yep..
[11:49] <fairuz> we push the arguments too :)
[11:49] <martk100> tapas: Too much philosophy for me.
[11:50] <tapas> martk100: :D
[11:50] <tapas> martk100: just try chaining two calls like main calls foo, which calls bar (like fairuz explained) without saving LR
[11:50] <tapas> you won't be able to return to main :D
[11:51] <tapas> saving and restoring that is..
[11:51] <tapas> and the easiest to do that is the stack :D
[11:51] <martk100> tapas: YEs I can understand that. IN ok3
[11:52] <tapas> martk100: ok :D
[11:52] <tapas> martk100: you still sounded doubtful so i hammered the point a little bit. forgive me :D
[11:53] <martk100> tapas: Yes I think so . Still abit confueed with the explanations in the lesssons. I will ponder some more . Thanks
[11:53] <tapas> martk100: ok, cool..

[11:58] * Pickley (~Pickley@ Quit (Quit: Pickley)
[11:58] <martk100> tapas: IN section 3 SetGpioFunction Does comparisons. If they fail It loads lr intp pc . Which takes the program counter back to the address after the call. Which ii ONe address too far.
[11:59] <martk100> tapas: It should be the address which called the function.
[11:59] <tapas> martk100: no, then the function would be called agai

[12:00] * jmaugue (~jmaugue@ Quit (Ping timeout: 260 seconds)
[12:00] <martk100> tapas: Yes because the comparisond have failed . It needs to try again.
[12:01] <tapas> martk100: oh, to check the success of a function you need to return a value
[12:01] <tapas> i.e. in a register or on the stack..
[12:01] <tapas> then check that value and conditionally jump to the branch again
[12:01] <tapas> which would then call the function again
[12:02] <martk100> tapas: So what is the point of the comparisons.

[15:50] <AR_> hello i would like to request a major revision in the pi design
[15:51] <chithead> I don't think that the unofficial irc channel is the correct place to do that
[15:51] <AR_> the pi needs to have a microSD card slot instead of big retarded SD
[15:51] <AR_> also, it should be 1ghz processor
[15:52] <AR_> and the GPIO header should have isolated 5v pin
[15:52] <chithead> read http://www.raspberrypi.org/archives/2008 with latest firmware, it will dynamically clock to 1 ghz already (if temps are not too high)
[15:52] <AR_> also remove video out and sound out
[15:52] <[SLB]> all of this to circumvent the users' clumsity?
[15:52] * DarkTherapy (~darkther4@ Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[15:53] <trevorman> why remove video and audio out?
[15:53] <AR_> [SLB], regardless of users abilities it is a horrible design to put a 5v male pin in close proximity to 5v-intolerant male pins
[15:53] <chithead> trevorman: because people who have only an analog tv are too poor to own a rpi :p
[15:54] <AR_> on an open board
[15:54] <AR_> no
[15:54] <AR_> no one uses video out anymore regardless
[15:54] <trevorman> chithead: nah. its the HDMI owners who don't want to sully their hardware with ye olde analog ;)
[15:54] <AR_> and you dont need GUI
[15:54] <AR_> the GPU should be removed as well
[15:54] <trevorman> AR_: No. You don't. Don't say everybody.
[15:54] <trevorman> AR_: lol
[15:54] <Gadget-Work> Nice to see nothing changes
[15:55] <AR_> serial terminal is enough
[15:55] <trevorman> go buy one of the many ARM development boards out there if you want that
[15:55] <[SLB]> model A??
[15:55] <AR_> remove hdmi as well
[15:55] <chithead> you do realize that the bcm2835 is a very big gpu, with a very small arm core attached to it?
[15:55] <AR_> yes it is a horrible misconfiguration, chithead
[15:55] <trevorman> i'm sure these changes are useful for you but you're removing features because you claim that nobody uses it when it is quite evident that people do
[15:55] <Gadget-Work> tbh, if you don't like it don't buy it
[15:56] <AR_> we can make a $5 version that is more powerful
[15:56] <trevorman> AR_: would you like to clock it at 2ghz as well? add some extra cores? couple GB more RAM?
[15:56] <AR_> by removing useless features

[15:56] <AR_> need pretty gui

[15:56] <[SLB]> my nokia 3210 rulez
[15:56] <AR_> and fast transition animations
[15:56] <AR_> chithead, horrible design
[15:57] <AR_> you cant make something that runs a smooth gui for $10
[15:57] <tzarc> oh look, the expert AR_ is here!
[15:57] <Hodapp> I too use an older Nokia, I've no need for a smartphone...
[15:57] <trevorman> 3/10 for this trolling. you're taking it too far to be taken seriously now.
[15:57] <Caver> ooh is it start of term
[15:57] <Caver> used to be the AOL newbies ..
[15:58] <AR_> i dont understand why you cant see through the magic smoke blown in front of you by apple
[15:58] <Hodapp> I've run X approximately twice on my Raspberry P, but still I find that HDMI rather useful to have.
[15:58] <atouk> and it should be red. only unripe rasbperries are green
[15:58] <Gadget-Work> I don't see what apple has to do with this
[15:58] <AR_> Hodapp, have you tried the serial terminal
[15:58] <AR_> it is faster than terminal in gui

[16:00] <AR_> or buy $2 chinese ttl level converter
[16:01] <Gadget-Work> Oh look, have the foundation launched something new, I see the RS site is down ;)
[16:01] <Hodapp> AR_: So now you're expecting me to, instead of (1) SSHing in or (2) walking 10 steps to the HDMI monitor and USB keyboard I _already have set up_, go buy something, wait for it to ship, figure out how to convert it, and wire that all up?
[16:01] <Tobias|> Hodapp: STOP DOING THINGS THE CONVENIENT WAY >_<
[16:01] <trevorman> Gadget-Work: unprecedented demand! RS only budgeted for 5 extra people to look at the website.

[16:03] <AR_> Hodapp, hdmi driver is waste of space
[16:03] <chithead> you can get a second usb-serial adapter and plug it in to the pi! then you have two serial ports

[16:03] <tzarc> Gadget-Work:you know what, that's a good point
[16:03] <applebloom> and i mean this in the most constructive way possible
[16:03] <[SLB]> ssh and no internet failures
[16:03] <trevorman> applebloom: built to a price point
[16:03] <Hodapp> guys, why is there a silk screen on the Raspberry Pi board? I don't even look at it.
[16:03] <Hodapp> it's a waste of ink.
[16:03] <Hodapp> and it costs too much.
[16:03] <trevorman> applebloom: plenty of design issues and better ways to have done things but *shrug* its what we've got at the moment

[16:53] <[SLB]> that post says 1ghz
[16:53] <[SLB]> hm
[16:53] <AR_> they are trying to trick more into buying an inferior product
[16:54] <AR_> you can overclock to 1ghz

[16:57] <[SLB]> eheh
[16:57] <RaTTuS|BIG> this setups up core_Freq arm_fre , sdfram_freq and overvolate
[16:58] <AR_> it sets up a great way to burn out your chip
[16:58] <RaTTuS|BIG> in general use it will run at 700mhz but as demadde goes up it will kick in the over clock values
[16:58] <[SLB]> ah oks let me see what new options raspi-config now has
[16:58] <[SLB]> AR_, i strongly doubt it'll poof up, and i ain't no mounting heatsinks nor fans

[17:05] <[SLB]> maybe only at booting, lol
[17:06] <[SLB]> is the competition about who boots faster?

[17:11] <Hodapp> AR_: What I still have yet to comprehend is how an RS232 adapter helps me when I don't need its level conversion, for none of my hardware is handling the negative voltages that RS232 uses.
[17:11] <AR_> ok Hodapp then simply connect that to a level shift
[17:12] <AR_> Hodapp, i assumed your serial cable terminated in a DB9 connector
[17:12] <AR_> as many do
[17:12] <AR_> the adapter i linked to just deals with the rx and tx lines
[17:12] <Hodapp> which adapter, the level shifter or the RS232 one?
[17:12] <AR_> it doesnt deal with the other pins of rs232
[17:12] <AR_> both
[17:13] <AR_> they are esentially the same
[17:13] <AR_> the one just has an "rs232 connector" on the one side
[17:13] <Hodapp> RS232 TX and RX use below-ground voltages that are very different from 3.3 V or 5 V serial.

[17:17] <Hodapp> in RS232, something like +3 V to +15 V is logic zero, and -3 to -15 V is logic high

[17:18] * mythos (~mythos@unaffiliated/mythos) Quit (Ping timeout: 265 seconds)
[17:18] <AR_> usb is 5v vcc
[17:18] <Hodapp> If it's RS232, then it is _not_ 5V level.
[17:18] <[SkG]> Regarding the new turbo mode...
[17:18] <Caver> correct
[17:18] <Caver> mm?
[17:18] <AR_> Hodapp, it depends on the power supply
[17:19] <Hodapp> AR_: -3 V to +3 V is not even a valid voltage range for RS232 TX or TX.
[17:19] <[SkG]> now able to offer a ???turbo mode???, which dynamically enables overclock and overvolt under the control of a cpufreq driver, without affecting your warranty. <--- it sets over_volt to 6 and that means warranty void bit???
[17:19] <AR_> who said anything about 3v rofl
[17:19] <[diecast]> will this allow me to interact with the distro as a terminal prompt? http://www.adafruit.com/products/954
[17:19] <trevorman> [SkG]: no. turbo mode doesn't set that warranty void bit even if its overvolting
[17:19] <[SkG]> interesting... why?
[17:19] <trevorman> [SkG]: turbo mode restricts the maximum voltage and it'll set it lower if the SoC gets too hot
[17:19] <Hodapp> AR_: RS232 is _not compatible_ with 3.3 V or 5 V serial. It's active-low, not active-high, and its voltage levels are completely different.
[17:20] <AR_> Hodapp, usb to serial uses TTL levels
[17:20] <AR_> it is what it is
[17:20] <trevorman> idk. they said they've not noticed any reduction in life if they do the dynamic clocking
[17:20] <Hodapp> AR_: If it's TTL levels, then it is not RS232.
[17:20] <Hodapp> AR_: They are completely incompatible.
[17:20] <Caver> correct ... it's serial
[17:20] <AR_> i'm not saying it uses RS232 level
[17:20] <AR_> that is irrelevant
[17:20] <[SkG]> trevorman, then... If I use the same setting in a plain Raspbian should work?
[17:20] <AR_> it uses a DB9 connector
[17:20] <Hodapp> AR_: Then why does it say that it converts to RS232?
[17:20] <[SLB]> with firmware updated yes [SkG]
[17:20] <[SkG]> I'm not using RPi Foundation image
[17:20] <Caver> anally retentively correct, and most people are happy to use rs232 for short
[17:20] <[SkG]> k
[17:21] <AR_> because they are idiots and most people think of a db9 connector as rs232
[17:21] <[SkG]> then I'm going tu update all the stuff
[17:21] <[SLB]> eheh
[17:21] <AR_> they put the rx and tx lines in the same spot as rs232
[17:21] <AR_> thats about all
[17:21] <[SLB]> i'm now running at 900/333/450/2
[17:21] <Hodapp> AR_: So it says RS232, but it is definitely not RS232?
[17:21] <[SLB]> Revision : 0002
[17:21] <AR_> correct
[17:22] <AR_> it is 5v
[17:22] <AR_> 0v low 5v high
[17:22] <InControl> RPi ius 3.3v
[17:22] <AR_> yes
[17:22] <AR_> hence level shift required
[17:23] <Hodapp> AR_: I'm still not entirely believing that this whole process is a 5-minute one...
[17:23] <trevorman> [SkG]: you need updated bootloader and kernel for it to work properly

[17:32] <Hodapp> AR`: No one here claimed this was complicated.

[17:34] <AR`> 5 minutes if you need to solder
[17:34] <[SkG]> [diecast], M3 thermal sticker
[17:34] <AR`> 30 second to connect things if you have the adapters
[17:34] <[SkG]> *3M
[17:35] <Hodapp> AR`: I really just think you should admit that the process is only that short once you've already done most of it - which includes the collecting and purchasing of parts, and acquiring the right instructions and pinouts.
[17:35] <AR`> again, i said after you have everything
[17:35] <Hodapp> AR`: By your logic, it takes only about an hour or two to build a car.
[17:35] <atouk> the hookup would have taken less time than this argument
[17:35] <AR`> no, a car requires a lot more assembly time

[17:36] <Hodapp> AR`: And seriously, this is one long, long explanation on your part for why the RPi doesn't need an HDMI connector.
[17:37] <[SLB]> i'm testing with 'time echo "scale=2000;4*a(1)" | bc -l' which it was working before, now i don't see any cpu scaling hmm

[17:37] <ech0s7> i have to start a bash script at raspberry boot, the script has inside a infinite loop, so the aim is to run in background thread? how can i do ?
[17:37] <AR`> maybe the rpi should have a usb serial output

[17:38] <AR`> lol
[17:38] <AR`> i mean maybe it should have a level shifter and ftdi chip on board with a usb connector for people like Hodapp
[17:38] <ech0s7> Hodapp: i have put script in /etc/profile.d
[17:38] <ech0s7> it's a good place ?
[17:39] <AR`> since it is too difficult to use an adapter cablle

[17:39] <Hodapp> AR`: No one here said it is difficult.
[17:39] <AR`> you can't seem to wrap your mind around the idea of a usb to serial cable with a db9 connector on the end
[17:40] <Hodapp> AR`: Your personal attacks aren't necessary.
[17:40] <[SLB]> how to test if scaling is actually happening?
[17:40] <Hodapp> ech0s7: Hmmm, that or rc.local
[17:41] <Hodapp> AR`: Telling you that it's not a 5-minute task - which is what I've been doing from the beginning - is not the same as claiming it's difficult or hard-to-understand, so I'd appreciate if you'd refrain from misrepresenting my point of view.

[17:48] <AC`97> how did i paste so many
[17:49] <AC`97> Tobias|: up to 1.3GHz. and card started corrupting
[17:49] <Tobias|> card?
[17:49] <[SLB]> for the bachelor degree i did latent semantic analysis in artificial intelligence, search engines, this kind of stuff, for this one am not sure yet eheh
[17:49] <AC`97> sd card.
[17:49] <Tobias|> o_O
[17:49] <Tobias|> I see
[17:49] <RaTTuS|BIG> Tobias| I got 940 with no over volt
[17:49] <Hodapp> [SLB]: CompSci for both?
[17:49] <Tobias|> I'm getting 950 without overvolting
[17:49] <Tobias|> That seems to be out of the ordinary though
[17:49] <[SLB]> the master is cs for intelligent systems, basically yes
[17:50] <Hodapp> [SLB]: but the bachelor's was CS or something else?
[17:50] <AC`97> CS? Corporate Sabotage?
[17:50] <[SLB]> yes cs too
[17:50] <Hodapp> AC`97: Computer Science :P
[17:50] <AC`97> Corporate Sabotage?
[17:50] <Hodapp> o_O
[17:50] <AC`97> O.o

[17:51] * DarkTherapy (~darkther4@ Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[17:51] <Hodapp> ahh, at my own school Comp Sci has had the unfortunate fate of being pushed around from department to department
[17:51] <[SLB]> we have 2 branches of cs one belongs to science the other to engineering, am in the eng one
[17:51] * DarkTherapy (~darkther4@adsl-213-249-171-14.karoo.kcom.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[17:52] <[SLB]> yes similar here too, started as a branch of electrotechnic
[17:52] <Hodapp> first it was part of engineering, then it was pushed into mathematics, then it was pushed to arts & sciences, then back to applied sciences... which is now merging with engineering again
[17:52] <Hodapp> in the course of about 7 years
[17:52] * AR` (~AR_@Dyn149152.cc.lehigh.edu) Quit (Ping timeout: 260 seconds)
[17:52] <[SLB]> ahh no here the 2 branches still exist for eng and sciences
[17:53] <[SLB]> my original course started in 2000, by that time it was a 5 year degree
[17:53] <Hodapp> with us the only real change is that now engineering technology will soon be a part of engineering instead of applied sciences
[17:53] <[SLB]> then they changed things and such
[17:53] <[SLB]> eheh nice
[17:53] <trevorman> Hodapp: their business cards must come with a pencil so you can write in whatever department it is that year

[18:01] <[SLB]> yes it works now
[18:01] <Lexip> Kinda seems like a bit of a dickish move nowadays to get them if you're not in a very important sales position or some shit, a bit like "Yeah, I'm THAT important.."

[18:03] <Lexip> trevorman, agreed.
[18:03] <Davespice> has anyone got the MathGl library to compile for the Pi? http://mathgl.sourceforge.net
[18:04] <Davespice> they do provide a cmake build system, but I just haven't tried it myself yet - was just wondering if anyone here has though

[18:08] <trevorman> Davespice: oh hrm. it uses opengl? yeah thats going to make it difficult
[18:08] <trevorman> I thought it just spat out data which you used something else to visualise
[18:09] <trevorman> you're going to need to port it to gles2
[18:09] <Davespice> its actually for rendering the graphs themselves
[18:09] <trevorman> yeah sorry. only just managed to download the code. the site is broken for me.
[18:09] <trevorman> AC`97: you can't set any arbitrary frequency
[18:10] <Davespice> okay, well I onyl need to make one graph so I could just roll my own system
[18:10] <trevorman> the PLL will have restrictions as it is unlikely to lock on every single frequency down to a couple khz in its range

[19:23] <AC`97> it does
[19:23] <swo0osh> I don't think so
[19:23] <swo0osh> Just looks like it glows
[19:23] <swo0osh> I guess overpriced lamps are cool tho
[19:24] <AC`97> indeed.
[19:24] <[SLB]> AC`97, y u so thinskinned
[19:24] <AC`97> i was testing my frankenstein hub
[19:24] <AC`97> [SLB]: y u so... uh... something??
[19:25] <swo0osh> woah man how did u flip that question mark upside down
[19:25] <AC`97> my keyboard is dying.
[19:25] <swo0osh> that is so weird lul
[19:25] <swo0osh> u should make a raspberry keyboard
[19:26] <[SLB]> shift+altgr+?
[19:26] <[SLB]> ??

[19:29] <AC`97> my pi has 0 ponies. how sad.
[19:29] <[SLB]> are you using a rotary encoder for the fan or something?
[19:29] <AC`97> i'm using fan's output thing
[19:29] <AC`97> + gpio
[19:30] <AC`97> i used my gpio remote receiver code for counting rpm >:D
[19:30] <AC`97> i so lazy
[19:30] <AC`97> it's also fully interrupt based. = erratic rpms, when i touch something metal onto ground, etc..
[19:32] <AC`97> i wonder if anyone else has similar interrupt problems
[19:32] <[SLB]> the fan sends a pulse per round on the control line?
[19:32] <oal> I'm looking for a small battery pack with usb in/out to use with my pi so that it doesn't power off if the power is away for a few minutes. Is this ok? http://www.ebay.com/itm/USB-2600mAh-Universal-Power-External-Battery-for-Mobile-iPhone-MP4-Black-New-EA-/221123077234?pt=PDA_Accessories&hash=item337bf66472

[19:32] <misterhat> barely
[19:32] <AC`97> if you run the fan on 12v, it sends 12v pulses :D
[19:32] <misterhat> oh wait
[19:32] <misterhat> yeah it looks fine
[19:32] <[SLB]> that depends on what

[19:33] <oal> misterhat: talking about that link?
[19:33] <misterhat> yeh
[19:33] <AC`97> it's most likely not 2600mAh though
[19:33] <oal> great. I don't need something that'll last for hours, just for occasional temporary power failures / disconnects
[19:33] <AC`97> probably around 1200-1800mAh

[19:34] <oal> (from that thing)
[19:34] <AC`97> i bought 2 1800mAh lithium ion batteries. it cost $18
[19:35] <AC`97> oal: just go with averages. ~300-400mA, i suppose
[19:35] <AC`97> or possibly just around 400mA and up

[19:36] * scorphus (~scorphus@CAcert/User/scorphus) has joined #raspberrypi
[19:36] <AC`97> oal: that's how much the pi will draw on average
[19:36] <AC`97> or idle.
[19:36] <oal> ah, I see.
[19:37] <misterhat> I wish model A was out
[19:37] <oal> can I measure the battery from the Pi and shutdown safely if the battery is almost empty?
[19:37] <misterhat> draws a lot less power
[19:37] <AC`97> oal: not without some work.
[19:37] <AC`97> you need an ADC, and possibly a logic level converter...
[19:37] <AC`97> and did i mention that i'm electronics illiterate?
[19:37] <oal> ok, don't think I'll bother. Power failures are rare :)
[19:38] <scummos> well just use a good journaling FS such as ext4, I don't think it's fatal if it just goes out then ;P
[19:38] <oal> But I'll get one of those battery packs. Thanks for looking at it

[19:38] <AC`97> my pi has low-voltage shutdown
[19:38] * atouk (~atouk@ool-4576177f.dyn.optonline.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[19:38] <AC`97> but then again, the primary relay only works down to a certain voltage
[19:39] <AC`97> when that relay pops off, the pi initiates shutdown sequence and then shuts itself off via suicide relay
[19:42] <[SLB]> with a timer?
[19:42] <AC`97> no timer.
[19:42] <AC`97> primary relay supplies power and gpio signal
[19:42] <AC`97> suicide relay supplies power in parallel to the first, and is controlled by RPi
[19:43] <AC`97> primary relay is controlled by switch/ignition
[19:43] * cccyRegeaneWolfe is now known as cccyRegeaneAway
[19:43] <AC`97> s/parallel to/parallel with/
[19:44] <AC`97> i also have some few software hax to prevent shutdown from happening when i'm just toggling the ignition to shut down my lights
[19:44] <[SLB]> i don't get how the secondary can turn the pi off by pi command, after the pi itself has shut down already
[19:45] <AC`97> well, the suicide relay works when it's gpio pin is pulled to ground
[19:45] <[SLB]> ah ok so lack of gpio signal makes the relay open?
[19:46] <AC`97> yes, when pi shuts down
[19:46] <[SLB]> okay
[19:46] <AC`97> i originally thought i'd have to do it manually, but then figured out that the gpio gets reset when the pi completes shutdown
[19:46] * whitman (~whitman@87-194-159-116.bethere.co.uk) has joined #raspberrypi
[19:46] <spycrab0> what happens if you execute shutdown now on the pi does it shutdown and restart then?
[19:46] <[SLB]> means it goes to high impedence?
[19:47] <AC`97> [SLB]: possibly.
[19:47] <[SLB]> ok
[19:47] <AC`97> spycrab0: it'll shut down
[19:47] <AC`97> that's why i have my suicide script reboot instead of shutting down.

[19:47] <spycrab0> AC??97: And if you want to start it again plug it in and out?
[19:47] <AC`97> when primary relay is still on, it'll reboot. if it's off, it'll click off suicide relay and stay off
[19:47] <spycrab0> i mean the power adapter
[19:48] <AC`97> spycrab0: oh. it'll be in my motorcycle
[19:48] <AC`97> but it works with a regular switch too during debug/testing/blahblah.

[21:54] <steve_rox> i have so much confidence in asus now i must say

[22:04] <streetuff> MrBIOS: i think you cant get svhs from the pi
[22:05] <MrBIOS> streetuff, S-video, not SVHS :)
[22:05] <MrBIOS> SVHS is a magnetic tape technology ;-)
[22:05] <streetuff> MrBIOS: yeah. thats what i meant. sorry :)
[22:05] <steve_rox> its annoying since i want to display some emulator on a composite LCD

[22:07] <steve_rox> id like to know how
[22:07] <steve_rox> i was unable to get vice to compile
[22:07] <trevorman> its a config.txt option
[22:07] <trevorman> one of them makes it ignore HDMI completely
[22:07] <streetuff> steve_rox: i compiled it from source
[22:07] <steve_rox> if you know the force cmd leme know cos i couldent find it anywhere
[22:07] <trevorman> no. I know there is one. never used it though.
[22:07] <streetuff> steve_rox: compiled the sdl version. works almost fluent with sound turned off
[22:08] <streetuff> steve_rox: xvic works with sound for me. tested my vic20 demo on it
[22:08] <markusg> is it possible to install xbmc on a debian wheezy distro?
[22:08] <steve_rox> well the legalised over volting today so maybe that boost will help you
[22:08] <MrBIOS> are there any config.txt parameters to force the board to come up in a particular resolution?
[22:08] <MrBIOS> I don't even know if it's possible for the Pi to drive 1600x1024
[22:09] <streetuff> steve_rox: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BI4BxAgjUS8
[22:09] <trevorman> MrBIOS: chroma + luma signals aren't available on the rpi

[22:10] <steve_rox> i only had experence with the c64 really
[22:10] <steve_rox> and maybe a bbc micro
[22:11] <streetuff> i still code demos on c64
[22:11] <MrBIOS> trevorman, makes sense, since the composite is generated on-die
[22:11] <streetuff> going to the X party in holland next month :)
[22:11] <steve_rox> some the music in c64 games were so crude yet amazing
[22:12] <streetuff> steve_rox: seen this? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=08qsP8GgaBQ&feature=plcp

[22:17] <steve_rox> not just "scratch"
[22:17] <trevorman> MrBIOS: doesn't look it supports odd resolutions like 1600x1024. there is a list of possible modes and that isn't on it. the list actually has more resolutions than are actually supported as well.
[22:17] <steve_rox> be great if we could get as many games on it as we did the c64
[22:17] <MrBIOS> trevorman are all the config file options documented somewhere?

[22:18] <trevorman> MrBIOS: http://elinux.org/RPi_config.txt

[22:43] <streetuff> and fixed cec

[22:54] <steve_rox> maybe its the adapter who knows
[22:54] <trevorman> it should do. the adapters are just a form factor change. no electronics in it.

[22:58] <FR^2> What phrases could I search the forums for?
[22:58] <trevorman> FR^2: uhhh thats not normal. the rpi itself shouldn't make any noise at all. not intentionally anyway. i'm sure it makes a good bang if you wired it up to your mains supply.
[22:59] <mgottschlag> FR^2: same here
[22:59] <AR_> FR^2, are you sure it is not your AC adapter

[23:02] <trevorman> djazz: odd. you got any other cards to test that card reader?

[23:05] <trevorman> hm. usually electrolytic caps blowing leaves a really bad smell
[23:05] <djazz> now laptop sees it... hmmm
[23:06] <trevorman> guess it had vented most of it already
[23:06] <djazz> ubuntu is full of bugs, but this?
[23:06] <steve_rox> the card is a AGP anyways so it may of been age

[23:06] <AR_> delicious

[23:09] <steve_rox> but a lot of ppl have hooked into that high risk game now
[23:10] <steve_rox> not allways the caps
[23:10] <trevorman> yeah. loads of perfectly good electronics was dumped because of the caps which you could fairly easily replace.
[23:11] <steve_rox> i once got this lcd display dumped in the trash , dient work but changed caps and its working great

[23:23] <djazz> Medium is 950/450 + 2 overvolt
[23:23] <djazz> i think
[23:23] <steve_rox> whats the manufacture of card?
[23:23] <djazz> SanDisk
[23:23] <[SLB]> 900/333/450/2
[23:23] <djazz> ok, written the new Raspbian on it
[23:23] <djazz> lets boot
[23:23] <steve_rox> odd
[23:24] <steve_rox> sandisk usually higher quality/
[23:24] <steve_rox> ?

[23:26] <steve_rox> i think i may have to buy more cards
[23:26] <steve_rox> simply since my digital cam has 0 cards now
[23:27] <trevorman> djazz: its all dependant on your specific rpi. some may go all the way to 1ghz whilst others will top out at around 800mhz. you just have to try it.
[23:27] <djazz> ok
[23:27] <trevorman> 800mhz seems to be achievable by all RPis without needing to overvolt. anything past that is luck of the draw.
[23:27] <djazz> im using the rev1 board from china atm
[23:27] <djazz> 900/450 is no problem too
[23:28] <djazz> should i use rpi-update or does apt-get upgrade do that?
[23:29] <djazz> stuff
[23:29] <djazz> firmware
[23:29] <kim-jong> srsly, i never had rpi-update
[23:29] <[SLB]> you may have to wait for months to have in the repos an update version of the kernel/firmware
[23:30] <[SLB]> rpi-update updates more frequently
[23:30] <[SLB]> week or even daily at times
[23:30] <djazz> i had to do rpi-update twice one day to get my wlan dongle working :S
[23:30] <SSilver2k2> my RS Pi can barely work at 800mhz. my element14 pi overclocks no issue at 900mhz. I'm really excited to try this new image out
