[0:08] <gordonDrogon> switch it on.
[0:08] <Blu3Knight> Does anyone run raspberry PI with NFS server ?
[0:09] <tonsofpcs> trying to pipe arecord to aplay, I get underruns, trying to dump arecord to a file, I get overruns....
[0:09] <gordonDrogon> I have mounted directories via NFS, but not for a while..
[0:09] <SIFTU> Blu3Knight: I'm running the NFS client on them fine
[0:09] <gordonDrogon> tonsofpcs, I don't think that's lack of an RTC..
[0:09] <tonsofpcs> gordonDrogon: what do you think then?
[0:10] <tonsofpcs> note that this is at 44.1k, at 48k I believe I was underrunning on both.
[0:10] * ka6sox-away is now known as ka6sox
[0:10] <gordonDrogon> tonsofpcs, no idea, but normally linux reads the rtc just once at boot time - on the Pi it can't so starts the clock at 0 until NTP kicks in.
[0:11] <gordonDrogon> and I'm off to bed.

[0:47] <Blu3Knight> Hello
[0:48] <Gorroth> question.. if i plug my RPi into my linux computer here, i guess that's enough power to boot it up. can i then view the RPi display over the serial device/

[0:51] <Blu3Knight> Gorroth: The RPI does not have an RS232 serial port, you would need to "HotWire" it for serial

[0:52] <Blu3Knight> Gorroth: http://lavalink.com/2012/03/raspberry-pi-serial-interfacing/
[0:52] <Gorroth> okay. i didn't know if it could be done over usb

[0:52] * PiBot sets mode +v sirclockalot
[0:53] <Blu3Knight> Gorroth: the easiest is to get an adapter for serial, or to another monitor
[0:55] * freeAgent (freeAgent@38.126.30.128) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:55] * PiBot sets mode +v freeAgent
[0:55] <PhotoJim> you could use a USB to serial adapter to create a console port, I'm sure
[0:55] <PhotoJim> although you might have to invoke the console after boot
[0:56] <Gorroth> i guess i'll just get it on the network and use it that way
[0:56] <Gorroth> was only going to use the serial over usb or some initial setup
[0:56] <Blu3Knight> You would need to have something that boots from first, but yes USB to serial, gender changer and back to your system.
[0:58] <Blu3Knight> Or you can just get something like this if you have DVI monitor - http://www.microcenter.com/product/348063/DVI_Female_to_HDMI_Male_Video_In-Line_Adapter
[0:59] <Gorroth> thanks, but i won't be using it with video very much
[0:59] <Gorroth> was just thinking that a usb-serial interface would be convenient for initial setup
[1:00] <Gorroth> so i can do it from, say, my netbook

[1:02] <japro> Gorroth, you could ssh into it?
[1:02] <japro> or do you have to enable ssh explicitly?
[1:02] <Gorroth> i haven't set it up yet; so, i wouldn't know the network address
[1:02] <Gorroth> i don't know if it has ssh setup by default
[1:03] <Gorroth> i'm going to install raspbian i think; would you guys agree?

[1:03] <japro> i plugged mine into the tv initially :D but reading the console in 1080p resolution from the couch turned out to be... challenging :D

[1:51] <nid0> you're going to need a *big* battery to manage a pi for 2 weeks. at 500mA draw, you're needing 168,000mAh at 5v from your battery
[1:51] <nid0> as a point of reference, a powergorilla is 21,000mAh
[1:51] <home> what is a powergorila :o
[1:52] <KameSense> solar panels ?
[1:52] <nid0> https://powertraveller.com/iwantsome/primatepower/powergorilla/
[1:52] <nid0> big-ass battery pack for laptops/phones etc
[1:52] <home> 210000mah is not a lo
[1:52] <home> a lot
[1:52] <scummos> "2-5 hours"? that's not really much for a notebook battery :D
[1:53] <nid0> well, its not much less than most notebook batteries

[2:04] <japro> ItzExor, shouldn't that be 48000mAh?
[2:06] <SpeedEvil> also - people - normalise your units.
[2:06] <SpeedEvil> 48Ah
[2:07] <japro> that is what my netbook has
[2:07] <japro> lasts about 6h
[2:08] <ItzExor> probably
[2:08] <scummos> SpeedEvil: h is not an SI unit
[2:08] <scummos> if anything, then this is 172.8 kAs
[2:09] <SpeedEvil> Ah is a customary unit.

[2:12] <japro> ah, "unit nazis" :D
[2:12] <scummos^> yep!
[2:12] <japro> do you also always cringe when people are like "this has 200 calories"
[2:12] <scummos^> units, grammar, and typesetting
[2:12] <japro> well that is not much :D
[2:12] <scummos^> yes
[2:13] <scummos^> calories, urgh
[2:13] <scummos^> but also, that "joule" they use there is extremely pointless
[2:13] <scummos^> what does it even mean
[2:13] <ItzExor> it's 56Wh at 11.1v

[2:13] * scummos^ senses the presence of evil "hour" units
[2:14] <japro> scummos^, i meant more because its always kilocalories but people just say calories... if something has 2000 calories you can at tons of it before you get fat D:
[2:14] <SpeedEvil> japro: yes
[2:14] <japro> eat tons of it
[2:15] <scummos^> japro: oh okay. but also, calories are deprecated in favour of joule ;P
[2:15] <japro> also how do they measure that :D
[2:15] <Syliss> normal laptop batteries are around 4.8Ah
[2:15] <scummos^> I have no idea
[2:15] <scummos^> E = mc??
[2:15] <japro> :D
[2:16] <scummos^> it's probably an estimate calculated from the components and how much energy an average human can draw from that
[2:16] <japro> which also leads to the funny "negative energy food"
[2:16] <scummos^> which is probably equivalent to "wild guessing which can easily be off by a factor of five"
[2:16] <japro> you know stuff your body needs more energy to digest than it gains from it :D
[2:16] <scummos^> yeah xD
[2:17] <japro> i always wonder if there are actually "scientific" sources about that stuff

[2:17] * PiBot sets mode +v DexterLB
[2:17] <japro> all these food books i ever saw were full of obvious misconceptions and horrible graphs
[2:18] <japro> my mother had one with a graph that showed the "yoyo-effect"
[2:18] <japro> so according to the graph the person oscillated between 30 and 90kg :D
[2:18] <japro> that must be unhealthy
[2:21] <scummos^> haha nice
[2:21] <scummos^> yeah that's the problem with those "sciences"
[2:21] <scummos^> altough you could probably do good stuff, and altough it is probably being done, there's so much crap around that it's really difficult to find something reasonable
[2:22] <scummos^> the only science I know where almost all sources are reasonable is mathematics
[2:23] <scummos^> and then, the more parameters there are, the more random it gets
[2:23] <scummos^> physics is mostly ok still
[2:23] <Dagger2> annoyingly, there is actually such a thing as a "large calorie", which is 1000 "small calories"
[2:23] <scummos^> what
[2:24] <Dagger2> so, particularly in the context of food energy, dropping the kilo is apparently acceptable
[2:24] <japro> for people that can't handle the "hard math" of using the kilo prefix :
[2:24] <Dagger2> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Calorie etc
[2:25] <scummos^> I like how there's 10 different possibilities to convert it to joule
[2:25] <scummos^> that's science
[2:26] <scummos^> "oh, your measurement is 10% off? just use another unit convention then and it'll be fine"
[2:26] <japro> so you get a relative error on the unit itself :D
[2:26] <japro> awesome
[2:27] <scummos^> :D
[2:27] <atouk> now we know where the banking crisis came from. all the scientists in thw world became economists
[2:27] <scummos^> oh well
[2:27] <scummos^> "what could possibly get worse"
[2:27] <scummos^> well I'll go sleep now, see you tomorrow :)

[3:25] <AC`97> i had a remote die when put away for 2 years.
[3:25] <AC`97> i couldn't take it apart, so i just drowned it and dried it up. works like new now.
[3:25] <AC`97> :D
[3:26] <steve_rox> eh?
[3:26] <AC`97> i washed it.
[3:26] <AC`97> filled it up with water from the hole in the battery compartment
[3:26] <AC`97> shook it for some extra cleaning om nom nom
[3:27] <steve_rox> sounds bad
[3:27] <Caleb> ok
[3:27] <AC`97> but it worked.
[3:27] <Caleb> someone paste what they have in config.txt
[3:27] <steve_rox> crazy even
[3:27] <steve_rox> there is much text in config.txt

[3:46] <steve_rox> bugs the crap outter me most the time

[3:48] <SpeedEvil> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CayMeza487M this is unrelated to the pi
[3:49] <Syliss> wtf!
[3:49] <Syliss> I'm a trek fan, but i hate that crap
[3:49] <steve_rox> one project i had in mind was to get a pi to read a cheap multimeter thu hacking it or whatever

[3:55] <arunkumar413> hi all, i have just received raspberry pi
[3:56] <arunkumar413> i would like use micro sd card as a storage.
[3:56] <arunkumar413> but there is no slot on raspberry for micro sd card. please help me
[3:56] <chithead> use the micro-sd to sd adapter that came with your card
[3:57] <atouk> use a usb thumbdrive
[3:57] <home> arfonzo: yep, do what they say :d
[3:57] <chithead> you can't boot from usb
[3:58] <atouk> nope, but you boot from the SD, then use the usb for everythign else after that
[3:58] <atouk> raster than the SD
[3:58] <arunkumar413> i don't have an adapter
[3:58] <atouk> (faster)
[3:59] <chithead> you can use microsd only in combination with microsd->sd adapter. find one or use a sd card
[3:59] <Blu3Knight> arunkumar413: The adapters are $1-$3 at any store.

[4:02] <steve_rox> no
[4:03] <Blu3Knight> It is a kickstarted project ???. but they are trying to make a $99 16 core system using Epihany microprocessor
[4:03] <steve_rox> oh i think i read about it
[4:04] <Blu3Knight> I have no idea what Epiphany chip is based on ???
[4:04] <atouk> pretty much a kickstart for everything now. the trick is to actually deliver a product
[4:05] <Blu3Knight> Yeah I know :)
[4:05] <arunkumar413> Blu3Knight, what class of memory card are best for raspberrypi
[4:05] <Blu3Knight> arunkumar413: There is a list of supported cards on the RPI page
[4:05] <chithead> http://elinux.org/RPi_VerifiedPeripherals#SD_cards and http://elinux.org/RPi_Performance#SD_card may help you decide
[4:05] <Blu3Knight> arunkumar413: I do not have a RPI yet??? going to pick up at least 2 tomorrow though
[4:06] <Syliss> c10 is best
[4:11] <piney0> class 6 *can* be faster than class 10, especially with smaller file sizes like found in an OS

[4:25] <Blu3Knight> Does anyone run NFS on the RPI?

[5:08] <heathkid> always
[5:08] <heathkid> for the price... do you know of anything better?
[5:08] <Blu3Knight> Look at deal extreme.com from China and probably can pick up a lot cheaper
[5:08] <heathkid> with the buck boost converter?
[5:08] <Blu3Knight> I have ordered tons from there??? free shipping
[5:08] <heathkid> hmmm
[5:09] <heathkid> my experience with deal extreme was one order... months later I cancelled it... not good.
[5:09] <Blu3Knight> I guess different for every person :)

[5:24] <atouk> no, but you can moce homefs to the usb after boot
[5:24] <atouk> (move)
[5:24] <Blu3Knight> Twist-: I have a ton of 8 Gb SD cards as well
[5:25] <PhotoJim> no, it won't. boot off SD, then transfer to a USB device.
[5:25] <Twist-> nice trick
[5:26] <atouk> make the image on the usb as well as the sd
[5:26] <Blu3Knight> Twist-: the idea is that you can dd a USB stick on any computer and have a backup to go back to at any time (same goes for SD and other stuff for that matter)
[5:26] <Twist-> I sort of like using a separate SD card per project though. The nostalgia of swapping bootable disks to change apps is nearly overwhelming.
[5:26] <PhotoJim> like the old days with the original Amiga, where we booted off floppy and transferred control to the hard disk.
[5:27] <atouk> change cmdline.txt to point to the usb
[5:27] <atouk> reboot
[5:27] <Twist-> I feel like a kid with a fresh box of floppies
[5:27] <atouk> rotfs on usb

[5:27] <heathkid> yep
[5:28] <heathkid> almost too much fun!
[5:28] <Blu3Knight> For me a bit more complicated as I am going to do Gentoo ??? and keep portage tree on NFS for access by all systems :)
[5:28] <heathkid> good luck
[5:28] <Blu3Knight> heathkid: Why luck?
[5:28] <heathkid> you'll need it
[5:28] <Blu3Knight> heathkid: I do not think so??? I live in Gentoo :)

[5:31] <Twist-> haha
[5:31] <Blu3Knight> My goal is to create a BinHost for the Gentoo RPI, partly for myself and partly for others.
[5:32] <Twist-> people do some seriously silly shit with the pi.
[5:32] <atouk> isn't that what it was made for?
[5:32] <Blu3Knight> Hey ??? its fun to tinker :)
[5:32] <Twist-> I'm not deriding the practice. I love it.
[5:32] <Twist-> $25 computer. why the hell not.
[5:32] <Blu3Knight> $35
[5:33] <Blu3Knight> :)
[5:34] <Twist-> Or hey, $50 in my case.
[5:34] <Blu3Knight> Shipping does not count :)
[5:34] <Twist-> (adafruit's $5 markup + 2 day air)
[5:35] <Twist-> but if I was building a cluster, I'd find the basic model at the suggested cost.
[5:36] <Blu3Knight> Twist: Basic model is fine, but this will let me play with things as well :)
[5:37] <Twist-> Mine's playing ethernet gateway to an arduino.
[5:37] <Twist-> Hilariously, it's cheaper than the official arduino ethernet board.

[7:41] <asaru> i imagine it was ripped out of a printer/scanner or something
[7:41] <tripgod> how is that screen getting its feed?
[7:41] <asaru> it just happened to have a composite input
[7:41] <asaru> so i had to resolder the displays power lines to the board that came with it, and then wire up a 12v dc wall wart and it worked fine
[7:42] <asaru> didnt know what to feed it at first, started with 3v, then 9v and the backlight kinda turned on, then 12v and it worked great

[7:45] <bircoe> I've got a 12v one tht I bypassed the regulators and am powerin off 5v
[7:45] <asaru> i got it to play an .mp4 video

[8:48] <PiRocketman> They are right at the limit of what the Pi can do. Haven't had any corruption issues.

[8:49] <PiRocketman> Despite serious overclocking and a lot of pulled power cables.

[13:02] <asaru> i do software mostly :P
[13:02] <asaru> i would wire the + of my wall wart to vcc, and - to ground?
[13:03] <[SLB]> wait i look for a better diagram
[13:04] <des2> Yes Vcc = +
[13:04] <asaru> i wonder how hard woudl it be to replace micro usb with a barrel style connector
[13:04] <asaru> i would rather just hardwire it, for use with batteries and such

[13:11] * Delboy_ (~openwrt@141-136-222-207.dsl.iskon.hr) Quit (Client Quit)
[13:11] <bircoe> doing this also bypasses the first poly fuse

[13:12] * PiBot sets mode +v Delboy
[13:12] <asaru> oh
[13:12] <asaru> and thats dangerous from what i understand
[13:12] <bircoe> depends how you look at it?
[13:12] <asaru> like say my wall wart is old and crappy, maybe pushing higher voltage than its supposed to
[13:13] <asaru> isnt that the sort of thing that fuse protects the pi from
[13:13] <bircoe> that's all relative... even if the supply is above 5v it may well be within spec still
[13:13] <bircoe> no the polyfuse trips with too much current
[13:13] <bircoe> not voltage
[13:13] <asaru> oh
[13:13] <bircoe> I believe the first polyfuse is 1.1A
[13:13] <asaru> ah, so if i wired up a 2a supply it would only let 1.1a in
[13:13] <bircoe> the Pi's power requirements are roughly 550mA
[13:14] <bircoe> + 140mA for each USB port
[13:14] <asaru> this is all a little over my head
[13:14] * Delboy (~openwrt@141-136-222-207.dsl.iskon.hr) Quit (Client Quit)
[13:14] <asaru> i'll get it eventually lol
[13:14] <bircoe> and you get a little over 800mA
[13:14] <bircoe> leaves approx 200mA of headroom for powering other devices from the GPIO header
[13:15] <asaru> so if i wired a 2a supply to c6 like that, it would bypass the first poly fuse, and send too much current into the pi, and break things?
[13:15] <bircoe> no
[13:15] <bircoe> that's not how current works
[13:15] <bircoe> I'm running a 3A supply on mine and it's perfectly fine
[13:15] <steve_rox> the fuze breaks circut if current goes greater than max tollerance
[13:15] <bircoe> infact the higher the current the better
[13:15] <asaru> ah
[13:15] <asaru> so whats max tolerance?
[13:15] <steve_rox> no idea
[13:16] <bircoe> like I said... 1.1A
[13:16] * paul__ (~paul@119.77.48.94) Quit (Ping timeout: 246 seconds)
[13:16] <asaru> so it seems like its no big deal to bypass this polyfuse
[13:16] <steve_rox> 1100ma right?
[13:16] <bircoe> I don't think so
[13:16] <bircoe> yup
[13:16] <asaru> i think the wall wart i'll probably be using is only 750mA anyways
[13:16] <steve_rox> fuze gets hot and breaks circut tempory
[13:17] <steve_rox> fuze like that sounds cool
[13:17] <asaru> but if i use say 4AA, that can get up to 2 or 3a right
[13:17] <steve_rox> bypassin it is just jumping two points nothin huge i guess
[13:17] <bircoe> the reason you want a supply with higher current is in the case of a 2A supply, let's say the Pi and periphials are drawing 1A you've still got 1A of headroom before you are at the limit of the power supply, it's voltage drop will be allot less because of this
[13:18] <discopig> lol
[13:18] <steve_rox> i have not bypassed my fuses since no reasion to
[13:18] <discopig> bircoe, right
[13:18] <discopig> headroom is important
[13:18] <asaru> i have some nice rechargable camera batteries that claim to push 2500mA
[13:18] <steve_rox> think rev2 pi bord removes fuzes all together
[13:19] <bircoe> indeed they do
[13:19] <bircoe> most boards are still polyfuse boards tho
[13:20] <bircoe> asaru, they don't push 2500mA they hold 2500mAh
[13:20] * Patteh (~BOB@unaffiliated/patteh) Quit (Ping timeout: 260 seconds)
[13:20] <bircoe> so you can draw 2.5A from those batteries for an hour before they'll go flat
[13:20] <chithead> if the power supply is rated for more amps it doesn't mean that the voltage drop is less
[13:21] <bircoe> I didn't say that
[13:21] <bircoe> I said if you are only drawing half the supplies rated current it's voltage drop will be less
[13:22] <discopig> yeah
[13:22] <bircoe> as load increases so does voltage drop... if you're only drawing 50% of the supplies capacity of course it's drop will be less, if you are drawing 90% then the drop will be higher

[13:23] * PiBot sets mode +v datagutt
[13:23] <chithead> you can't say that a 700mA power supply is better or worse than a 2A one. the 700mA might very well maintain >4.9V, while the 2A drops to 4.75V the moment you draw any current
[13:24] <asaru> oh i see
[13:24] <steve_rox> looks like my wifi nano thing arrived
[13:24] <steve_rox> ill have fun makein that work
[13:24] <asaru> well, its way past my bedtime
[13:24] <bircoe> and you could have the exact oppisite occur... it all depends on the quality of the power supply
[13:24] <steve_rox> i havet slept since yesterday
[13:24] <asaru> me either. its 6 30am here
[13:25] <steve_rox> still finding it hel to type with swolen fingers
[13:25] <asaru> too busy playing with my little screen
[13:25] <bircoe> but as a general rule of thumb running a supply closer to it's limits will cause it to drop voltage
[13:25] <steve_rox> lil screen?
[13:25] <asaru> http://i.imgur.com/f281Z.jpg
[13:26] <thrawed> bircoe: especially if it's a cheap one
[13:26] <asaru> free. found in a box of random electronics parts
[13:26] <asaru> takes 12v

[13:26] <thrawed> asaru: res?
[13:26] <asaru> think it came out of some kind of printer/scanner deal
[13:26] <asaru> beats me
[13:27] <steve_rox> cute scr
[13:27] <asaru> got hd video to play on it
[13:27] <asaru> lol
[13:27] <steve_rox> composite i assume
[13:27] <asaru> yeah
[13:27] <steve_rox> is it nice and sharp?
[13:27] <asaru> its not too bad
[13:27] <asaru> refresh rate is a little off it seems
[13:28] <asaru> video played nicely
[13:28] <steve_rox> try find out what device it came out of maybes
[13:28] <asaru> i dunno
[13:28] <steve_rox> may be interestign
[13:28] <asaru> i googled the hell out of it, couldnt find anything
[13:28] <steve_rox> odd
[13:28] <asaru> the screen says 'sharp' on it
[13:28] <steve_rox> ah so it is nice andsharp
[13:28] <asaru> that ones obvious, the board that runs it, only identifying marks i could find are '0113' and 'suntying'
[13:28] <steve_rox> self proclaimed
[13:29] <asaru> based on the other stuff they ahve on their website, i bet its from a printer or scanner sort of deal
[13:29] <steve_rox> i got that 3.5 composite lcd with 5v power
[13:29] <asaru> nice
[13:29] <asaru> this one is 4.5" diag
[13:29] <steve_rox> fitted a usb socket to it
[13:29] <asaru> nice, power them both from the same supply
[13:30] <steve_rox> so its 12v and 5v compatible
[13:30] <asaru> i coudlnt figure out what kind of voltage this screen needed so i started small
[13:30] <asaru> 3v did nothing, 9v turned the backlight on sort of, but no display
[13:30] <steve_rox> allways fun
[13:30] <asaru> 12v and it came right up
[13:30] <steve_rox> sometimes things like cap rateings can give clues maybes
[13:31] <asaru> where i got this screen, there are at least 4 more, so i wasnt worried about blowing it up lol
[13:31] <steve_rox> :-P
[13:31] <steve_rox> lucky it has composite in i guess
[13:31] <asaru> yeah i just noticed the composite in and was like 'oh snap, i can hook this up to my pi'
[13:31] <discopig> i want to get one of those 7-10" touch screens
[13:32] <asaru> is it easy to run touch screen in linux
[13:32] <discopig> or even without touch, ij ust want a screen
[13:32] <asaru> drivers are there and ready?
[13:32] <discopig> yeah
[13:32] <asaru> nice
[13:32] <discopig> i set it up before on another machine
[13:32] <discopig> xorg handles it well
[13:32] <asaru> i would love to see a blackberry style keyboard/mouse unit over gpio
[13:32] <discopig> that would be nice
[13:33] <asaru> this little screen + pi + batteries + tiny kbd = handheld computer
[13:33] <asaru> i was considering taking apart a usb controller, and then building it like a gameboy, but for quake3
[13:33] <asaru> wifi and all
[13:33] <steve_rox> size form factor is tricky to figure out for portable pi
[13:33] <asaru> i can make custom cases and such
[13:34] <asaru> laser cutter, cnc lathes, etc
[13:34] <asaru> 3d printer
[13:34] <asaru> whatever
[13:34] <steve_rox> then what power cells
[13:34] <asaru> i dunno
[13:34] <asaru> maybe some sort of small phone battery or something
[13:34] <steve_rox> them lith polimers look interesting but you dont want ya pi to explode
[13:35] <steve_rox> c4 batterys
[13:35] <asaru> or a camera battery pack
[13:35] <asaru> something that just stays in there and i can charge with a wall wart
[13:35] <asaru> or run it while powered to the mains
[13:35] <asaru> either way
[13:36] <asaru> it'd be neat
[13:36] <steve_rox> the pi has so many functions its hard to pre define it into one shape/case if ya get me
[13:37] <steve_rox> was thinking maybe some kinda scientific kinda case with gpio ports easy accessable along with other fun crap
[13:37] <asaru> something like this
[13:37] <asaru> http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=40&t=15554
[13:37] <asaru> only more advanced controller, for quake3

[15:40] <amitksaha> refer to the docs please
[15:42] <arunkumar413> amitksaha, i have a micro sd card and an adapter, does rpi detect the the sd with adapter
[15:42] <amitksaha> arunkumar413, i don't know
[15:43] <amitksaha> i had a SD card, and I don't have an adapter - so can't say

[15:45] <arunkumar413> amitksaha, i dont have an hdmi cable or an rca cable
[15:45] <arunkumar413> i have the coaxial cable
[15:45] <amitksaha> arunkumar413, how do you plan to use it then? You could plug it into your LAN, ofcourse and use it headless
[15:46] <amitksaha> but for that you would need to start the SSH server
[15:46] <amitksaha> which you can't if you can't see -- well you may be able to, but hard.
[15:46] <amitksaha> so, you have to find a TV
[15:46] <amitksaha> and plug out your cable from your DVD player and plug it into the PI
[15:47] <arunkumar413> amitksaha, there is a set-top-box which has some cables
[15:47] <arunkumar413> amitksaha, can i use them
[15:47] <amitksaha> arunkumar413, not sure, as long as you find one which fits into the round slot of the Pi and its other end is in the input jack of your TV, may be
[15:48] <amitksaha> boot and see
[15:48] <arunkumar413> ok
[15:48] <amitksaha> what are you planning to do with your Pi?
[15:49] <amitksaha> will you use it headless/remotely or you will sit on it and work?
[15:50] <des2> If you can't get a monitor to work download one of the distributions with ssh enabled by default.
[15:51] <amitksaha> des2, +1
[15:52] <amitksaha> arunkumar413, see des2 's suggesstion

[16:04] <amitksaha> arunkumar413, are you sure your Pi is even booting?
[16:05] <arunkumar413> amitksaha, i see a red color led glowing when i power it
[16:05] <amitksaha> that's probably just power -- and it probably does;t change into anything else if its not working
[16:06] <amitksaha> my Pi experience is a at best a day old
[16:06] <amitksaha> so i am not sure about the hardware bits
[16:07] <amitksaha> do you have a local home network?
[16:07] <amitksaha> can you plugin a ethernet cable to the Pi?
[16:08] <arunkumar413> amitksaha, yes, but no extra lan cable
[16:09] <amitksaha> arunkumar413, if i were you, I would do one of two things:
[16:09] <arunkumar413> amitksaha, first i want to sure that my adapter is working correctly
[16:09] <amitksaha> get it to boot from a SD card and see it it works
[16:09] <amitksaha> else, plug it into the LAN- get the Ip somehow, and try pinging it.

[16:48] <amitksaha> arunkumar413, you are using a SD card inserted into the Pi and not with an adapter?

[16:49] <arunkumar413> amitksaha, my card is sd micro memory card
[16:49] <amitksaha> arunkumar413, get an SD card and try to use that instead
[16:49] <amitksaha> chances are your Pi is not booting
[16:50] <arunkumar413> amitksaha, sd card are not available now a days. they are outdated
[16:50] <arunkumar413> amitksaha, only micro memory card are available

[16:50] <amitksaha> 2050?
[16:50] <amitksaha> I am still in 2012
[16:52] <arunkumar413> amitksaha, sd and micro sd are different, i guess

[17:09] <[SLB]> paradoxally, if you hold your finger on the soc, the temp will go down eheh
[17:09] <trevorman> amitksaha: micro SD will be fine to boot off on the RPi. they're exactly the same as a regular SD card just smaller.
[17:10] <trevorman> [SLB]: why is that a paradox?
[17:10] <japro> thrawed, i have about 48
[17:10] <amitksaha> trevorman, you mean to say card reader + micro SD plugged into the USB port will boot just fine?
[17:10] <[SLB]> not a real paradox, like the birthday paradox, just expectation eheh
[17:10] <amitksaha> does it look there for a boot disk as well?
[17:11] * amitksaha is not sure about the boot order on the Pi board
[17:11] <trevorman> amitksaha: no. I never said that. you get micro SD adapters that let you plug a micro SD into a SD slot.
[17:11] <thrawed> amitksaha: no, /boot needs to be in the SD slot
[17:11] <trevorman> the RPi can only boot from SD
[17:12] <thrawed> you can chuck everything else onto usb, but /boot needs to stay on sd
[17:12] <amitksaha> thrawed, that;s what I have learnt from elsewhere

[23:01] <chithead> no. you can only increase the hdmi resolution. you might be able to get the full kernel messages through serial console
[23:02] <wrostek> How can I use serial console?
[23:02] <wrostek> Is that a boot parameter?
[23:02] <PhotoJim> you need a serial port first. and the Pi doesn't come with one.
[23:02] <wrostek> is there a faq on setting this up?
[23:02] <wrostek> I was trying to find one
[23:04] <trevorman> PhotoJim: the serial port console is on the expansion connector
[23:04] <PhotoJim> setting up a serial console is really easy, but I'm not sure if you can watch a Pi boot via one since you need a USB one.
[23:04] <trevorman> its just 3.3V
[23:04] <PhotoJim> trevorman: I thought that had some faults.
[23:04] <chithead> are you using the cutdown_defconfig? it should directly give you a booting kernel. http://elinux.org/RPi_Serial_Connection tells you how to set up serial console
[23:04] <PhotoJim> I could be wrong.
[23:04] <trevorman> nope. works fine as a console at least. probably wouldn't be great if you tried to push large amounts of data through it though.
[23:04] <PhotoJim> oh, good to know.
[23:04] <trevorman> complete lack of handshaking lines
[23:04] <PhotoJim> if it worked at even 9600 bps, that'd be fine.
[23:05] <chithead> the serial console is available through gpio14 (txd) and gpio 15 (rxd)
[23:05] <wrostek> Yes, the kernel that is precompiled works, but If i build my own ( using the zcat /proc/config.gz > .config ) I get a kernel panic

[23:20] <wrostek> is there any way via cmdline.txt to get rpi to log a kernel panic to /var/log?
[23:20] <trevorman> scummos: if you're trying to drive every GPIO then maximum is ~3mA per pin

[23:26] <gordonDrogon> if you want to play with the drive strength, then some versions of the gpio command in wiringPi will do it, but the current release is broken (it segfaults)
[23:26] <gordonDrogon> trevorman, not sure I'd like to try with 21 LEDs :)

[23:27] <gordonDrogon> what language?
[23:27] <Datalink> I had to change the i2c from i2c-3 to i2c-0 for the GPIO header, since Gumstix breaks out at 3

[23:32] <wrostek> hmm , well the last line in the paste is where the kernel panic happens, its just not recorded in /var/log/dmesg
[23:33] <Datalink> chris_99, videolan (known as VLC) is in the apt-get repo for raspbian
[23:33] <PhotoJim> chris_99: you could try mplayer. it's a very lightweight player. you run it from a shell, but it will open video windows to play video content.
[23:33] <gordonDrogon> Datalink, get wiringPi, then 'gpio load spi'
[23:33] <gordonDrogon> although it's just occured to me that it won't copt with a rev2 board now.
[23:33] <Datalink> wiringpi is the package name?
[23:34] <chris_99> ta, yeah i'm trying to run mplayer from the shell (without X) but it doesn't seem to run properly
[23:34] <chris_99> for some reason
[23:34] <Datalink> mine's a rev 1
[23:34] <linuxstb> Datalink, PhotoJim: Are either of those actually ported to the Pi yet though? (i.e. using the GPU at all)
[23:34] <gordonDrogon> it'll work for you.
[23:34] <asaru> chris_99: omx player works flawlessly from the shell
[23:34] <PhotoJim> linuxstb: that, I don't know.
[23:34] <Datalink> linuxstb, I donno... mine was compiled on a Pi... haven't worked out if it's video optimized, I haven't actually run video yet
[23:34] <trevorman> omxplayer is the only player that can do HW decode on the RPi
[23:34] <PhotoJim> it runs on the pi, but it may not be optimized for it. I haven't researched it.

[23:36] <chris_99> and it doesn't put up any errors
[23:36] <asaru> what codec is inside the mp4
[23:36] <linuxstb> mp4 is just a container - you need to find out the video codec.
[23:36] <chris_99> ah, how would i find that
[23:36] <linuxstb> mplayer would tell you.
[23:36] <Datalink> I'd suggest looking at the file properties in VLC but mplayer should also say...
[23:37] <linuxstb> Or maybe even just "file" - e.g. "file video.mp4"
[23:37] <Datalink> gordonDrogon, okay what did you need me to do with gpio load spi?
[23:38] <gordonDrogon> Datalink, you don't need to do anything - it's just a utility to help load the spi and i2c modules.
[23:38] <Datalink> ah... heh, I have them loaded at OS level :P
[23:38] <gordonDrogon> Datalink, so I normally leave them blacklisted in /etc/modprobe* then load them as needed.
[23:38] <Datalink> ah, makes sense, I'd have to add that to the blinkm program I use though
[23:38] <gordonDrogon> I often use the 5 SPI pins and 2 I2C pins for other purposes...
[23:39] <Datalink> ah, makes sense, I'm more inclined to use them for the protocol (devices vs raw purpose) so loading them is useful for me
[23:40] <gordonDrogon> ok
[23:40] <Datalink> hm, how would I unload the modules with gpio?
[23:40] <gordonDrogon> sudo reboot ;-)
[23:40] <Datalink> doesn't appear to be a command for that
[23:40] <Datalink> ah, okay
[23:40] <Datalink> may as well load them with the OS then
[23:40] <gordonDrogon> although it's on the todo list...

[23:41] <Datalink> I have 2 other dev boards with tons of IO, I'm not quite worried about missing 5 pins on the pi
[23:41] <Datalink> Arduino and the XuLA FPGA boards have me covered there
[23:42] <chris_99> hmm this is really odd 'Selected video codec: [ffh264] vfm: ffmpeg (FFmpeg H.264)'
[23:42] <chris_99> and yet omxplayer doesn't play it
[23:42] <Datalink> H.264 is one of the most popular... did mplayer play it, or VLC?
[23:42] <chithead> what is the fourcc?
[23:42] <chris_99> mplayer on my laptop plays it fine
[23:43] * AC`97 (~pzzt@50-0-74-209.dsl.dynamic.sonic.net) Quit (Ping timeout: 265 seconds)
[23:43] <asaru> it is probably mpeg2 or vc1

[23:43] <asaru> you need to buy a license for those on the pi

[23:44] <asaru> chris_99: see http://www.raspberrypi.org/archives/1839
[23:44] <chris_99> huh, it's h264 asaru
[23:44] <asaru> oh
[23:44] <asaru> then it should play in omxplayer
[23:44] <gordonDrogon> right. zed time for me!
[23:44] <asaru> i can play h.264 in .mp4 just fine in omxplayer
[23:44] <chris_99> yeah but it doesn't weirdly
[23:46] <asaru> what kind of screen
[23:46] <chris_99> sorry whatcha mean

[23:47] <asaru> i meant like composite or hdmi
[23:47] <chris_99> oh hdmi
[23:47] <trevorman> chris_99: you got any other files to test?
[23:47] <chris_99> yeah other files work fine
[23:48] <asaru> whats your memory split?
[23:48] <chris_99> ah that's a point, i'll check
[23:48] <asaru> try switching to 128 and see if it plays
[23:48] <asaru> i couldnt play h.264 with 224 split
[23:48] <chris_99> oh interesting
[23:49] <chris_99> i'm just using the default
[23:49] <chris_99> though
[23:49] <asaru> yeah just thought of that
[23:49] <asaru> try rpi-update 128
[23:49] <asaru> or raspi-config can switch it for you
[23:50] <chris_99> ta, just used raspi-config
[23:50] <asaru> and did it work?
[23:50] <chris_99> just rebooting
