[0:22] <rikkib> No idea sorry. I run static on everything here.
[0:23] <rdh> I normally use dhcpcd and works so why isnt it using that. How do i set static

[0:30] <rdh> Well if i set to "iface wlan0 inet manual"
[0:30] <rikkib> The is a clone of raspi-config called rpi-config that will sort out hostname/hists and static ip
[0:30] <rdh> And then dhclient wlan0....
[0:30] <rikkib> htere
[0:31] <rikkib> there
[0:31] <rikkib> I wrote this clone
[0:31] <rdh> And wpa set to my wpa supplicant conffile...
[0:32] <rdh> Why cant they us something that actually works? Lol

[0:33] <rdh> I guess i have to cross compile dhcpcd or something...
[0:33] <aaa801> rdh: why ?
[0:33] <rikkib> What disto are you using?
[0:33] <rdh> Cause dhclient just hangs...

[0:43] <rikkib> Hmmmm thats a thought
[0:44] <rdh> Using wpa supplicant directly and its trying to auth with an open network...
[0:44] <rikkib> Not really... As I said I have stm32v board and thinking of hooking them up via spi
[0:44] * scummos_ (~sven@p57B1B11D.dip.t-dialin.net) Quit (Ping timeout: 246 seconds)

[0:47] <rdh> What? I have it "wpa-conf /etc..." thats not a good way to do it?
[0:47] <chithead> no, and slap the one who told you to do that
[0:47] <rdh> Lol ok why?
[0:48] <chithead> all your debian networking needs can be satisfied by /etc/network/interfaces, including connection to wpa encrypted wireless networks

[0:54] <GGon> the power ratings on the rpi.. is that including the onboard nic? the 700mA rating?

[0:55] * PiBot sets mode +v Mike632T
[0:55] <des2> yes
[0:56] <GGon> so with a 1.2A charger i should have 500mA to spare correct? for usb devices.

[0:57] * PiBot sets mode +v scummos_
[0:57] <des2> Do you have a version 1 or version 2 board ?
[0:57] <GGon> how do i tell?
[0:57] <des2> The version 1 has polyfuzes on the USB that limits the currentl
[0:58] <des2> If your board doesn't havemounting holesit is version 1.
[0:58] <GGon> my board doesn't have mounting holes ;)
[0:58] <plugwash> note: later version 1 boards have the usb polyswitches replaced with zero ohm links
[0:59] <GGon> would that also affect the nic?
[0:59] <GGon> since the nic is just internal usb
[0:59] <GGon> or jst the usb ports?
[0:59] <des2> The USB ports on models with polyfuses are limited to under 140mA
[0:59] <chithead> the nic is doubles as usb hub
[1:00] <chithead> s/is//
[1:00] * rdh (~rdh@d-69-161-81-234.cpe.metrocast.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:00] * PiBot sets mode +v rdh
[1:00] <GGon> so the nic would cut off if there was too much of a power draw on the port?
[1:00] <des2> As lugwash pointed out though before model 2 they replaced the polys with jumpers.
[1:00] <GGon> due to the polyswitches?
[1:00] <des2> plugwash
[1:00] <plugwash> the NIC is not supplied through the USB port polyfuses
[1:01] <GGon> ok
[1:01] <plugwash> but if main board voltage drops too low it may well drop out
[1:01] <des2> http://theiopage.blogspot.com/2012/06/increasing-raspberry-pis-usb-host.html
[1:01] <des2> There's a page that discusses the power issues.
[1:02] <GGon> i see. i only ask because this is a replacement board
[1:02] <GGon> my last one had an issue where the nic would keep dying no matter what i did
[1:02] <GGon> that includes using a network xbmc remote and having no usb devices attached (i use an mce ir dongle)
[1:03] <des2> Also there is some evidence the Pi doesn't like voltages below 4.9 volts.
[1:04] <rdh> man... i still cant get this wifi adapter to connect to my router...
[1:04] <des2> If you have a voltmeter you may want to check the voltage from your adapter under power.
[1:04] <rdh> still getting authentication timed out and Its an open network.
[1:05] <rikkib> Hmmm I have had issues such as nic dying... The issue is software, in my case, not hardware and falling back to a working image is my only solution at this point.
[1:05] <des2> "If you think you have a problem with your power supply, it is a good idea to check the actual voltage on the Raspberry Pi circuit board. Two test points labelled TP1 and TP2 are provided on the circuit board to facilitate voltage measurements."

[2:54] <AC`97> now it's $290/month.
[2:54] * AC`97 blames the RPi
[2:55] <AC`97> it's also going up higher each month.
[2:55] <Tachyon`> qemu or bochs...
[2:55] <AC`97> bochs
[2:55] <AC`97> you know you like slow :D
[2:56] <Tachyon`> the problem isn't it's slow, it's black unless I'm in X
[2:56] <Tachyon`> lol
[2:56] <AC`97> O.o wuh
[2:56] <Tachyon`> fuse-sdl runs really nicely from the console
[2:56] <Tachyon`> yeah, get a black screen with mouse pointer when running the sdl port but if I click the black space where eh quit button should be it does quit
[2:56] <Tachyon`> so it's clearly almost working
[2:57] <Tachyon`> I'll give qemu a go
[2:57] <Sv> AC`97, how do you make the pi use so much power
[2:57] <AC`97> vmware ??
[2:57] <Tachyon`> vmware wouldn't work as it's not intel
[2:57] <AC`97> Sv: ask the raspberry pi foundation
[2:57] <AC`97> D: it's not intel?!?
[2:57] <Sv> mine only uses about 600mAh
[2:57] <AC`97> preposterous
[2:58] <AC`97> Sv: whoa. that's more than mine.
[2:58] <AC`97> mine uses a bit over 400mA
[2:58] <AC`97> (no h) :D

[3:01] <GGon> new rpi is working great off the tv's usb port :)
[3:01] <GGon> amazing
[3:01] <AC`97> inb4 fried tv usb power.
[3:01] <AC`97> port*
[3:02] <AC`97> :D
[3:02] <GGon> AC`97: your tv's port didn't have like.. some sort of breaker or something?
[3:02] <AC`97> ...
[3:02] <AC`97> my tvs don't have usb ports
[3:02] <AC`97> they have serial.
[3:03] <GGon> oh
[3:03] <GGon> i have mine hooked up to the tv now
[3:03] <GGon> seems ok so far
[3:03] <AC`97> power it from a few solar panels glued onto your tv screen >:D
[3:03] <AC`97> then take pictures.

[3:05] <GGon> hahaha. no thanks
[3:05] <GGon> the usb port works fine ;)
[3:05] <Tachyon`> ah, qemu does seem to nip along
[3:05] <GGon> although ... it's rated at 2.5W according to wikipedia
[3:05] <GGon> so i'm sure a battery powered by a solar panel might be able to run it all day long

[3:06] <GGon> AC`97: that's what the battery is for ;)
[3:06] <GGon> most homes with solar panels have huge batteries
[3:06] <AC`97> indeed.
[3:07] <GGon> solar panels aren't very practical in chicago tho
[3:07] <GGon> you would be had pressed to find a house with any here
[3:07] <asaru> maybe like downtown but im sure there are plenty of spaces that get decent sunlight in chicago
[3:08] <GGon> well. it isn't really that. the winter time may prove problematic
[3:08] <asaru> well sure
[3:08] <GGon> when the days last like 5 hours heh
[3:08] <asaru> but i live up in mke and theres tons of solar all over town
[3:08] * Patteh (~BOB@unaffiliated/patteh) Quit ()
[3:08] <GGon> i don't know. i doubt it would offset cost
[3:09] <AC`97> one time, i charged up 2 huge capacitors with a solar panel, and use it to power a big impact wrench.
[3:09] <GGon> the energy savings would take years to realize
[3:09] <asaru> i suppose maybe not much in the winter
[3:09] <AC`97> it worked for like 1 and a half second.
[3:09] <GGon> AC`97: hahaha
[3:09] <AC`97> but it was pretty cool. 24v powering a 120v power tool
[3:09] <GGon> capacitors discharge rather quickly
[3:10] <AC`97> i also used those capacitors to melt beefy wires.
[3:10] <AC`97> they go BANG.
[3:10] <AC`97> quick discharge indeed :D
[3:10] <asaru> just how big are these capacitors?
[3:10] <GGon> the only time i ever used a capacitor was in my car for the stereo speakers
[3:11] <GGon> but those were specifically made for that purpose
[3:11] <AC`97> asaru: almost the big as the ones in my 160amp welder
[3:12] <asaru> so... big?
[3:12] <asaru> lol
[3:12] <asaru> big enough for a tesla coil?
[3:12] <AC`97> er, lemme try to look for a picture

[3:33] <Blu3Knight> Has anyone built a successful crossdev arm environment on Intel system?
[3:34] <rikkib> Yes
[3:35] <AC`97> many ones.
[3:35] <Blu3Knight> rikkib: What is the trick to getting all the programs to compile for the environment??? mine fails on gcc all the time
[3:36] <Blu3Knight> Base system runs gcc 4.5.4
[3:36] <rikkib> crosstool-ng
[3:37] <rikkib> Not sure what you mean... You can not build the compiler?
[3:38] <Blu3Knight> it fails during the creation of the arm toolchain all the time.
[3:38] <AC`97> create a leg toolchain then.
[3:38] * AC`97 is architecture-illiterate
[3:38] <rikkib> What is the error? You may be missing something.... crosstools sorts most of that out
[3:39] <Blu3Knight> rikkib: Crosstool is not in Gentoo Portage, I am just using the regular crossed environemnt
[3:39] <rikkib> I did have to install stuff on my Debian 6 system
[3:39] <AC`97> (eww gentoo)
[3:40] <rikkib> crosstools is just a script...
[3:41] <Blu3Knight> What is the crossdev environment that you are using?
[3:42] <rikkib> http://www.bootc.net/archives/2012/05/26/how-to-build-a-cross-compiler-for-your-raspberry-pi/
[3:43] <rikkib> This helped me
[3:43] <rikkib> and the howto on the elinux wiki
[3:44] <rikkib> I am cross compiling in x86 for the RPi
[3:44] <rikkib> on
[3:44] <rikkib> Debian 6
[3:44] <Sv> lol
[3:45] <Blu3Knight> rikkib: Thank you for the link
[3:46] <rikkib> elinux kernel compilation should find it
[3:48] <rikkib> http://elinux.org/RPi_Kernel_Compilation
[3:49] <rikkib> A mix of what you find here and there cause some of it is not what I do... ie sudo
[3:50] <rikkib> If you want to make a kernel I can cut and paste the commands if you wish...
[3:51] <Blu3Knight> rikkib: No ??? I just wanted to see if I can use the many Intel systems I have as part of the distcc farm on the RPI's
[3:52] <rikkib> distcc farm?
[3:53] <Blu3Knight> rikkib: You familiar with distcc?
[3:53] <Blu3Knight> http://code.google.com/p/distcc/
[3:53] <rikkib> Never heard of it
[3:53] * rikkib learns something new every day :)
[3:53] <Blu3Knight> Helps you build the environments a lot faster by distributing the compiling jobs across multiple systems and CPU's
[3:54] <rikkib> Ahhhh
[3:54] <Blu3Knight> Really works wonderful ???. especially if you have a ton of systems.
[3:54] <Blu3Knight> Or a ton of cores
[3:55] <rikkib> Just hook 3 linux boxes together
[3:55] <rikkib> Complile time down to half
[3:55] <Blu3Knight> rikkib: That is what it does :)
[3:56] <rikkib> Often though of it but never got around to doing it.... I have access to lots of old machines.

[12:17] <Tachyon`> fits in my pocket nicely with the pi but not so easy to use, lol
[12:18] <Xark> Tachyon`: Ahh. I've seen those and wondered about them. Thanks for the tip. Already looked a bit awkward to use.
[12:18] <Tachyon`> seriously, it was missing keys within two metres of the pi and on a full charge
[12:19] <Xark> Tachyon`: Haha, sounds like PC Jr. all over. :)
[12:19] <Dagger2> does that thing have rubber keys?
[12:19] <Tachyon`> they're hard plastic keys with leaf switches underneath
[12:19] <Tachyon`> so expect a key travel of about 0.5mm
[12:19] <aaa801> gordonDrogon: tsc2007
[12:20] <Dagger2> ah, that presumably helps. I have a similar keyboard-only thing that has rubber keys, and it's horrible to use
[12:20] <Xark> Tachyon`: Wow, sounds "crippling".
[12:20] <Dagger2> I mean, obviously something that small with a rectangular layout is going to be horrible, but when they're rubber it's mushy too :(
[12:20] <Tachyon`> it's okay for emergency use but not for any lengthy typing
[12:20] <Tachyon`> the trackpad works quite well
[12:20] <Tachyon`> I'll just use it as a media remote

[12:27] <Tachyon`> it's not hiding on a fn+key

[12:28] <Tachyon`> I'm never very good at that
[12:28] <rymate1234> wat do
[12:28] <Tachyon`> just power cycle it if it's not responding
[12:28] <Tachyon`> nothing else you can do
[12:29] <rymate1234> kthen
[12:29] <Xark> If it makes you feel better, press ctrl-alt-del right before you yank power. :)

[12:29] <rymate1234> ok
[12:29] <rymate1234> anyone know a good emulator for the rpi?

[13:25] <gordonDrogon> Xark, back home I have a nice georgian town house :)
[13:26] <Xark> gordonDrogon: I see. :)
[13:27] <Xark> gordonDrogon: Sounds like you need to hammer a copper spike into the ground somewhere. :)
[13:27] <spycrab0> should this gpio cable ( http://thumbs4.ebaystatic.com/d/l225/m/mmpaGchN1UBGNZ7qmKsrJUg.jpg ) work?
[13:27] <gordonDrogon> Xark, yea, I suspect if I did, then it would kill the town elctrickery supply...
[13:28] <Xark> gordonDrogon: Hehe.
[13:28] <gordonDrogon> spycrab0, sure - but you'll need to solder the socket onto a board that can take it - ie. need a gap between the pins!

[13:33] <gordonDrogon> spycrab0, ok - many other solutons - e.g. just a breadboard and jumper leads if you can get them locally.
[13:34] <gordonDrogon> or, something like a coblet board from adafruit - if you have a lock outlet of their stuff there.

[13:45] <gordonDrogon> tinti, never tried it. it might work on the Pi...
[13:45] <tinti> gordonDrogon: A friend told me that is not so wise to connect the 3v3 on 5v in this case
[13:45] <gordonDrogon> actually, having looked at it, it won't work on a Pi.
[13:46] <gordonDrogon> th relays are 5v relays and they won't work.
[13:46] <gordonDrogon> it's marginal to work on an arduino too, but hey...
[13:47] <SpeedEvil> each relay has a transistor
[13:48] <SpeedEvil> I can't see the values, but it's plausible it may work
[13:48] * Holden (~holden@unaffiliated/holdenc) Quit (Quit: Ex-Chat)
[13:48] <SpeedEvil> you would need to connect the 5v to 'Vcc', and ensure that there is not >3.3v on the inputs when idle
[13:49] <tinti> SpeedEvil: thanks
[13:49] <SpeedEvil> not saying it will certainly work, but it's quite plausible it may.

[15:19] <[SySteM]> Hello
[15:19] <[SySteM]> is there a possiblilty to use GPIO to input a value from 0 to 255 ? and not just a boolean 0/1 ?
[15:20] <ReggieUK> yes
[15:21] <ReggieUK> just wiggle the pin anywhere between 0 and 255 times :D
[15:21] <Azuria> ReggieUK: Please elabotrate :)
[15:21] <locutox> sigma delta styles
[15:21] <Azuria> to my little knowledge, there would have to be a ADC chip in the middle?
[15:22] <[SySteM]> i want to use PWM
[15:23] <ReggieUK> I'm joking, there is a pwm pin available but analog gpio is used by the audio output of the pi
[15:24] <ReggieUK> http://elinux.org/Rpi_Low-level_peripherals
[15:24] <[SySteM]> thx
[15:24] <ReggieUK> other than that, yes you'd need an adc depending on what you want to do
[15:25] <[SySteM]> only get temperature
[15:25] <ReggieUK> I think there are spi? adc chips around
[15:25] <ReggieUK> the ones I've seen have the analog input and convert that to 8pins (for 8bit adc)
[15:25] <ReggieUK> so you read the state of the 8 pins to get your value between 0-255
[15:26] <[SySteM]> its a simple pin sensor http://www.reuk.co.uk/shopImages/lm335z-temperature-sensor.jpg
[15:26] <[SySteM]> 3 pins
[15:26] <[SySteM]> i can simply get it on arduino board
[15:27] <Azuria> if you want temp sensing, why not use a digital one? like ds18b20?, they also use just one pin, and you can have them in a small network on that pin
[15:28] <ReggieUK> I was going to suggest that too Azuria
[15:28] <coin3d> hey there. is it possible to install xbmc on raspbian? it seems that the package to install it is broken on raspbian
[15:28] <ReggieUK> they're like $2 each singly
[15:28] <ReggieUK> try xbian or raspbmc possibly?
[15:29] <[SySteM]> Yes i try with i got on my hand :)
[15:29] <[SySteM]> Thanks for advice :)
[15:29] <coin3d> ReggieUK: i wanted to have a "pure" debian on my raspberry, with the possibility to install programs via ssh, start an xserver, etc.
[15:29] <Azuria> ReggieUK: true... but the analog sensors i have tried, just thermistors, where vulnerabul(misspelled?) to long wire runs, where digital proofed to do the trick

[15:34] <ReggieUK> edit it on a pc?
[15:34] <ReggieUK> coin3d, xbian has apt installed
[15:34] <ReggieUK> so you can install stuff
[15:35] <ReggieUK> you can also put a delay on xbian starting xbmc so you can drop out to a terminal
[15:35] <Dyskette> Can you not just su root on raspbian?
[15:35] <Dyskette> And then visudo to fix it?
[15:36] <ReggieUK> Azuria, I'm not disagreeing with you, I think digital would be a better way to go, however, digital can be affected by long cable runs too
[15:36] <rymate|rpi> what's the default root password?
[15:36] <ReggieUK> there isn't one on raspbian is there?
[15:37] <Dyskette> That I have no idea of.
[15:37] <rymate|rpi> oh crap
[15:37] <Dyskette> Changing passwords (including setting root password) was one of the first things I did.

[15:43] <Azuria> ReggieUK: you might be right... then an analog might be of use... the code could be tweaked to compensate for the resistance in the cable, but you would have to calibrate for every sensor/cable

[20:21] <des2> Unixes have 3 permission levels
[20:21] <des2> World, Group, and Owner.
[20:22] <MashedUpCow> I sort of understand the unix permissions model, and the chmod command

[20:22] <des2> Really what you need is to great a third group with members from group 1 and 2.
[20:22] <ibm2> whats the current linux distro(s) for the pi?
[20:22] <lannocc> MashedUpCow: you should define a new group to contain all the members of these other groups
[20:22] <MashedUpCow> ok
[20:23] <AC`97> now that archlinux has hardfloat, there's no reason to use anything else!~
[20:23] <MashedUpCow> that answers my question, only one group can own a directory
[20:23] <MashedUpCow> so I have to chown it, then chmod it for the group I want to access it
[20:23] <des2> This problem is handled in a more modern fashion with Access Control Lists.
[20:23] <AC`97> clown it?
[20:24] <des2> You just have to chgrp it to the new group
[20:24] <MashedUpCow> ah yes, sorry the group
[20:24] <MashedUpCow> thanks
[20:24] <MashedUpCow> bassliner: have everything connected when you boot it up
[20:24] <MashedUpCow> bassliner: what OS you using
[20:25] <bassliner> MashedUpCow: just an openelec 16gb image to try to get up and running before trying something own.
[20:26] <MashedUpCow> I started with Raspbian (sp?), the Debian version
[20:26] <MashedUpCow> quickly got annoyed with the speed of the GUI and moved to Arch
[20:26] <MashedUpCow> learning command line stuff now
[20:26] <bassliner> MashedUpCow: are there custom images for various sd card sizes?
[20:26] <MashedUpCow> now I never connect a TV to it
[20:26] <bassliner> MashedUpCow: i'm using arch on all my boxes.
[20:26] <MashedUpCow> no, you have to use the image and then adjust the size of hate boot partition to fill the disk
[20:26] <bassliner> MashedUpCow: desktop boxes and laptops that is.
[20:27] <MashedUpCow> if you use Debian, there's an option to to this automatically on startup, I'm yet to work out how to do it on Arch
[20:27] <bassliner> probably you can simply use lvresize if you use LVM

[20:49] <Blu3Knight> AC`97: No I want to create an image that I can dd to a disk later, just like Raspbian.
[20:50] <MashedUpCow> that uses a 2gb image for that reason, I think
[20:50] <AC`97> then create a file that's the same size you want it to be
[20:50] <AC`97> and format it
[20:50] <AC`97> er, parition it first, then format
[20:50] <AC`97> partition*

[20:50] <Blu3Knight> Never did that before ??? always dealt with actual drives..
[20:50] <AC`97> and copy over boot sector
[20:51] <Blu3Knight> Will search ??? thank you
[20:51] <MashedUpCow> I agree with AC`97,
[20:51] <MashedUpCow> I think what you want to do is squeeze it down, but I don't think you can
[20:51] <MashedUpCow> an .img file is an image of the whole partition, regardless of whether there's actually data on it
[20:51] <AC`97> best way is to recreate
[20:52] <Blu3Knight> MashedUpCow: Yep??? it is which is why I am trying to go down.
[20:52] <Blu3Knight> MashedUpCow: I am trying to create an img file of Gentoo with the boot partition and main partition, but only putting in the minimum things.

[21:04] <ibm2> watching Demolition Man on G4TV
[21:04] <Blu3Knight> ing = img thanks to spelling correction
[21:04] <Datalink> Blu3Knight, I'd avoid DDing onto the active filesystems, otherwise dd is powerful

[21:09] <AC`97> Blu3Knight: but it's not good for distributing :P
[21:09] <Blu3Knight> AC`97: That is what I am trying to figure out ??? how to create an .img file that is good for distributing.
[21:09] <Blu3Knight> AC`97: and is small :)
[21:10] <AC`97> recreate.
[21:10] <Blu3Knight> AC`97: What do you mean?
[21:10] <AC`97> recreate the partition scheme so everything fits just right
[21:11] <AC`97> and let the end user resize it if they need more space
[21:11] <ibm2> Blu3Knight once you figure it out, post a blog somewhere!
[21:11] <Blu3Knight> ibm2: Will do ??? but first need to figure out.
[21:12] <AC`97> Blu3Knight: got the sparse image? how big is it?
[21:12] <AC`97> if you can send it to me, i can halp you chomp down the size :D
[21:13] <AC`97> and i can chomp it down very uberly indeed.
[21:13] <axion> dd copies zeroes too...
[21:14] <Blu3Knight> axion: Yep???. that is what I am trying to avoid, and figure out how.
[21:14] <AC`97> manual sparsing?
[21:14] <AC`97> >:D
[21:14] <ibm2> cant you rsync?

[21:20] <Blu3Knight> I guess I did not notice the download because my speed is so high
[21:20] <rikkib> 400mb for the zipped img
[21:21] <rikkib> When you compress the blank space compresses to nothing
[21:21] <MashedUpCow> I think you might be better keeping the free space
[21:21] <MashedUpCow> at least a little of it
[21:22] <axion> indeed...you could easily distribute 7z and a .bat for decompressing/writing to disk
[21:22] <Datalink> eix, they should just go in /boot/ or the fat32 partition at the start of the SD card if you aren't on the filesystem
[21:22] <MashedUpCow> compressing the .img down will remove it, and anyone who uses it will want to have some space to use it without adding new partitions first
[21:22] <Tachyon`> it's possible to boot from ext2? I thought it had to be fat
[21:24] <rikkib> fat32
[21:24] <lannocc> i believe it has to be FAT32. But you can still mount that at /boot for convenience.

[22:39] <bassliner> but it's really a usable desktop as well
[22:39] <bassliner> ok it's slow, but absolutely enough for a bit of browsing the web and using ssh sessions inside a terminal

[22:44] <Datalink> bassliner, one of the Raspbian mirrors is a pi in a colo, sitting on another server with a USB TB HD attached... they're pretty versitile
[22:44] <Neal_> is the network stuff initialized before rc.local runs on raspbian? since `hostname -I` is not executing anything
[22:47] <bassliner> Datalink: well i'm still impressed about the usability as a desktop.
[22:47] <bassliner> Datalink: if you don't need fancy stuff, this is a perfect little machine to carry with you on travels if you know you'll have a monitor at your destination.
[22:49] <bassliner> Datalink: the amount of usb ports is exactly one too less for my needs tho, but that really is bellyache on a high level.
[22:49] <Datalink> Neal_, S06rc.local S0ifplugs, donno if your rcx.d is different though
[22:50] <MashedUpCow> get a little hub
[22:50] <Datalink> bassliner, it supports unpowered HUBs, I use a 'USB Doomsday Device' novelty hub, though I haven't tried to use it's fire button for obvious reasons
[22:50] <MashedUpCow> I've got a little travel one with a power supply, handy thing is, you can use one of the ports to power the Pi too
[22:50] <bassliner> hehe
[22:50] * whitman (~whitman@87-194-159-116.bethere.co.uk) Quit ()
[22:50] <MashedUpCow> one of these http://www.hexcs.com/products-2/usb-hubs-card-readers/logitech-4-port-usb-hub-for-notebook/
[22:51] <MashedUpCow> then you'd have three + 1 USB ports
[22:51] <Blu3Knight> I noticed something interesting yesterday on my hub. When you turn off power the hub is still powering the PI through the USB port???. anyone had this happen?
[22:51] <Datalink> I wouldn't know, I wallwart my Pi
[22:51] <MashedUpCow> like powering it "backwards"
[22:51] <bassliner> bad thing is just that i was waiting for about 2 or 3 months now for this order - i ordered 2 further pi's and i hope those will arrive soon so i can build a) my mpd-raspberry and b) a little box for my tv as well and have this one here as a box for testing stuff and hacking around.
[22:52] <Blu3Knight> MashedUpCow: Yeah??? weird
[22:52] <MashedUpCow> If you unplugged it, rather than just turn it off, I bet the earth would go away and it would stop working
[22:53] <Datalink> MashedUpCow, some cheaper Hubs have no protection on the upstream port, but this is allowed as the device is supposed to have protection

[22:54] <Datalink> Blu3Knight, I once wired the GPIO backwards... just thankful there wasn't any obvious damage from 5V, though I'm sure I'll get some eccentric behavior in time, I caught it quickly
[22:54] * TheBestJohn (~TheBestJo@ Quit (Quit: MegaIRC v4.06 http://ironfist.at.tut.by)
[22:54] <Blu3Knight> OK??? let me see if I can change things around then :)
[22:54] <Datalink> as far as the hardware itself... it's exactly what I expected, save I learned you can't hotplug some more powerful devices
[22:55] <Blu3Knight> Datalink: Let me change Hubs around ??? I have a Belkin that should work fine.
[22:55] <Datalink> Blu3Knight, alright, like I said, unpowered Hubs are okay so long as you remember the Pi isn't an infinate source of power
[22:56] <Datalink> aka, keep it to keyboards and mouse devices, wireless for these is okay
[22:56] <Datalink> XBox wifi adaptor always killed the Pi when I plugged it in hot... so I don't play with that anymore
[22:56] <treeherder> wireless stuff doesn't work well on my pi

[22:57] <Datalink> treeherder, once I finished the pain that is pairing the bluetooth keyboard/mouse I got to the Pi, it's run that on console just fine, just... took me forever to figure out how to pair it
[22:57] <Datalink> now the pi's like "oh, that keyboard, okay"
[22:57] <Datalink> any problems I have had since are directly the fault of the cheap keyboard... blah
[22:58] <eix> I use a powered hub, however I noticed it can't charge my phone
[22:58] <Datalink> hm, I need to remember to plug in this thing
[22:58] <eix> it must not be very powerful..

[22:59] <eix> Datalink: funny..?
[22:59] <eix> Datalink: it just does not charge, and says "USB debug enabled"
[23:00] <Datalink> as in strange, not haha like a clown...
[23:00] <Datalink> why did I compile in NTFS on this kernel?
[23:00] <eix> Datalink: I get that. but what can be strange in the way a phone uses USB? it's the only input for charging
[23:01] <eix> Datalink: that will not make your kernel slower
[23:01] <Datalink> eix, DFU, mass storage, debugging, service, USB is used for a ton of stuff on a phone, usually with odd implementation
[23:01] <eix> oh..this 'git pull' with related 'git index-pack' is bloody slow
[23:01] <Datalink> yeah, just wondering why, it actually went quick, but that's because NTFS is read-only
[23:02] <chithead> ntfs-3g supports write but would be slower

[23:03] <bassliner> so how do i go in order to let mplayer play fullscreen?

[23:49] <OpenSys> chithead, the list don't have armslack
[23:49] <chithead> it's a wiki, so if some piece of information is missing or wrong...
[23:50] <OpenSys> right :)
[23:50] <MashedUpCow> how the hell do I tell what DNS servers my system is using? what's the linux command??
[23:50] <MashedUpCow> been searching around, driving me nuts
[23:50] <chithead> "cat /etc/resolv.conf"?
[23:51] <MashedUpCow> that's where its set, but I want to make sure its using what I set in there :)
[23:51] <OpenSys> then: nameserver
[23:51] <MashedUpCow> what's the equivalent of nslookup from DOS?
[23:51] <chithead> /etc/resolv.conf is what is used for the "dns" part in /etc/nsswitch.conf
[23:52] <Draylor> nslookup
[23:52] <Draylor> heh
[23:52] <MashedUpCow> I've set what I want it to be, I just want to query what is actually being used
[23:53] <chithead> nslookup will tell you which server it queries
[23:53] * yano (yano@freenode/staff/yano) has joined #raspberrypi
[23:53] <MashedUpCow> mm, that doesn't work
[23:53] <chithead> be aware that this affects only applications which do a lookup through libc
[23:53] <MashedUpCow> command not found
[23:54] <OpenSys> MashedUpCow, the dns order: cat /etc/host.conf
[23:54] * wiiguy (~fake@unaffiliated/wiiguy) Quit (Quit: I just broke my connection, but no worries, we can rebuild it. We have the technology.)
[23:54] <MashedUpCow> I know that's where you specify what you want to use
[23:54] <MashedUpCow> I've set them
[23:55] <MashedUpCow> I just want to make sure that its actually using what I've set in there
[23:55] * robmorrissey (~robmorris@cpc14-brig15-2-0-cust245.3-3.cable.virginmedia.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[23:55] <MashedUpCow> before I make all my machines on my network use my Pi as a DNS server
[23:55] <OpenSys> dig +trace www.google.com
[23:56] * linuxstb (~linuxstb@host86-136-64-97.range86-136.btcentralplus.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[23:56] <OpenSys> then you see all the trace of the dns request
[23:56] <MashedUpCow> ah ha!
[23:57] <MashedUpCow> I can tell its not doing what I want as a reboot has set the clock back to 1970, which means it can't find the DNS server for the time setting thingy
[23:57] * erulai (470b8684@gateway/web/freenode/ip. has joined #raspberrypi
[23:58] <erulai> Hello all. Anyone here have experience with retroarch_joyconfig and slowing down the input rate of an NES pad connected to the GPIO?
[23:59] <chithead> resolv.conf will be overwritten occasionally, so be sure to use your distro's method of configuring dns
