Timestamps are in GMT/BST.

[0:00] <des2> as long as it's abovr 4.9 don't worry.
[0:00] <Tachyon`> yeah, ripple won't show up on a meter though
[0:00] <Tachyon`> but I will give it a test
[0:00] <Tachyon`> well, won't show up on this meter, it's a cheap maplins job
[0:00] <des2> yes you are correct about ripple, which you really need a scope to see.
[0:01] <Tachyon`> aye, the PSU did have a CE mark but I'm sure the chinese can print those
[0:02] * RaycisCharles (RaycisChar@cpc20-lutn10-2-0-cust20.9-3.cable.virginmedia.com) Quit ()
[0:03] <des2> Most CE marks don't even try to look legit.
[0:03] * Weaselweb (~quassel@77-64-181-50.dynamic.primacom.net) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[0:03] <des2> http://ec.europa.eu/enterprise/images/ce_mark_big.gif
[0:03] <des2> The Cs are too close to the E on the fakes.
[0:04] <des2> C is rather.
[0:06] * tinti (~tinti@maxtrack-F4-0-3-gacc04.bhe.embratel.net.br) Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[0:06] * butcher99 (butcher907@cpc15-ipsw1-2-0-cust113.7-4.cable.virginmedia.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:07] <Tachyon`> hrm, seeing 5.04v on the test points
[0:08] <des2> That's good.
[0:08] * mchou (~quassel@unaffiliated/mchou) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:08] * satellit_e (~satellit_@bbb72-0-185-15.bendbroadband.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:09] <des2> The PI is designed to use only a maximum of 700mA (that's what the polyfuse on the input is designed for).
[0:09] <des2> The polyfuse is designed to trip at about 1.2 amps.
[0:10] <des2> If you have an older version 1 the USB ports have polyfuses also.
[0:10] <Tachyon`> hrm, about half a volt of ripple
[0:10] <Tachyon`> ahh
[0:10] <gordonDrogon> evening.
[0:10] <Tachyon`> yes, I must remember to link those out
[0:11] <des2> 500mV of ripple ?
[0:11] <des2> that's a lot.
[0:11] * CaptainOblivious (~chatzilla@adsl-074-184-089-183.sip.asm.bellsouth.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:12] <Tachyon`> well, it's a quite old scope so relies on the eyeball a lot but it looked like about that, aye, won't bother using that one anymroe then
[0:12] <Tachyon`> taht's probably why the phone didn't like it
[0:13] * jprvita is now known as jprvita|afk
[0:14] * crenn (~Crenn@60-241-72-121.static.tpgi.com.au) has joined #raspberrypi

[0:16] * coin3d (~coin3d@p4FE75EFD.dip.t-dialin.net) Quit (Quit: coin3d)
[0:16] <David7> Has anyone here used a Netgear WNA1100 with a Pi?
[0:17] * XeCrypt is now known as Tuxuser
[0:20] <Tachyon`> this is curious
[0:20] <des2> What OS are you using David7 ?
[0:20] <Tachyon`> the polyfuses on my USB ports appear to be 0 ohm resistors
[0:20] <David7> des2, Raspbian
[0:20] <des2> That was done in later version 1s
[0:21] * Hamzah (~mhamzahkh@hamzah.is.an.evil.g3nius.net) Quit (Ping timeout: 245 seconds)
[0:21] <Tachyon`> I'm assuming the world won't end if I link out the one on the bottom so I can draw more current (like a max of 2A)
[0:21] <maicod> here's my problem: http://www.maiconet.nl/pi-problem/
[0:21] * johnthebear (~Johnthebe@c-24-11-165-154.hsd1.mi.comcast.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:22] <des2> no. Your pi might end...
[0:22] <Tachyon`> that may be an incompatible SD card
[0:22] <Tachyon`> well, yes, but I think you can go up to 2.5A safely aye? and my PSU is limited to 2...
[0:22] <Cheery> why all linux distributions are full of gunk, if linux has a working udev already?
[0:23] * Tachyon` points Cheery at arch
[0:23] <maicod> tachyon: I had the same problems with a sandisk 16GB class4 card
[0:23] <OpenSys> 32GB class 10
[0:23] <OpenSys> hummmmmm
[0:23] <Tachyon`> I have a sandisk 16GB class 10 here that's been somewhat problematic
[0:23] <OpenSys> big cards
[0:23] <Tachyon`> although it's been fine today so I'm not sure now
[0:23] <Syliss> that sounds expensive
[0:23] <maicod> oh
[0:23] <des2> From what I see David there are debian issues with the WNA1100 but apparently it works on the lates wheezy.
[0:23] <David7> Tachyon`, the wiki says the amperage can be between 700 ma and 1200 ma for the model B
[0:23] <maicod> syliss: it was 25 euros
[0:24] <OpenSys> 8G class 4 or 6
[0:24] <OpenSys> works good
[0:24] <maicod> not bad for 32GB
[0:24] <Tachyon`> this fuse says 1075 so I assume that means it starts to increase resistance at 750mA?
[0:24] <Syliss> not to bad, 33usd
[0:24] <Syliss> idk the brand tho
[0:24] <maicod> syliss: I know :)
[0:25] <des2> http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=27&t=18625
[0:25] * xCP23x (~Chris@188-223-203-160.zone14.bethere.co.uk) Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[0:25] <maicod> tachyon: are you in europe or US ?
[0:25] <Tachyon`> europe, england to be exact
[0:25] <maicod> I'm in Netherlands
[0:25] * jodaro (~Adium@75-101-50-37.dsl.static.sonic.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:25] <Tachyon`> well, fairly exact
[0:25] <maicod> ah closeby :)
[0:25] <Tachyon`> ahh
[0:25] <des2> Well 750 is the 'hold current' for the polyfuse.
[0:25] <Syliss> i really want this https://www.adafruit.com/products/966
[0:25] <des2> Which is the current it's designed to operate at .
[0:26] <Cheery> Tachyon`: why should I look at Arch?
[0:26] <maicod> Tachyon: I think its hard to find the exact cards that are listed in the verified cards list on elinux
[0:26] <Tachyon`> oh, you seeemed to be unhappy about bloat in the prepackaged linuxes
[0:26] * Hamzah (~mhamzahkh@hamzah.is.an.evil.g3nius.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:26] <David7> Thanks, des2
[0:26] <maicod> Tachyon`: often the label doesnt mean the insides of the card is the same
[0:26] <Syliss> i prefer the images then i don't have to build them
[0:27] * mchou (~quassel@unaffiliated/mchou) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[0:27] <Tachyon`> yeah, I'm happy with raspbian myself
[0:27] <Tachyon`> but for those who aren't, arch seems ideal
[0:28] <Cheery> Tachyon`: well I wonder.. if linux has a working device system that understands dynamic nature of the devices and is able to detect their plugging/unplugging.. why still have /dev there?
[0:28] <maicod> Tachyon`: the 1.2A psu that RS linked to when I got the Rpi looks fine ?
[0:28] <Cheery> it confuses heck out of you
[0:29] <maicod> I don't draw power from the main usb ports except for the powered hub
[0:29] * simmo (~steve@74-45-32-252.dr01.elko.nv.frontiernet.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:30] <David7> Cheery, you need /dev so you can open the device as a file: e.g. dd if=/dev/random of=random.dat bs=1K count=1
[0:30] * jodaro (~Adium@75-101-50-37.dsl.static.sonic.net) Quit (Ping timeout: 272 seconds)
[0:32] <Cheery> David7: it makes point for some devices. But most devices have some unique identifier. why don't have just those?
[0:33] <vlt> Cheery: Can you give an example?
[0:33] <Cheery> mice
[0:33] <Cheery> keyboards
[0:33] <Cheery> then there's still some device handles that aren't really attached to anything
[0:33] <vlt> Cheery: I mean an example for a non-/dev cmd line then.
[0:34] <maicod> btw my Extremememory card is listed on the pherified pheripherals list :)
[0:34] <maicod> I forgot it was on it :)
[0:35] <Datalink> ....
[0:35] * Datalink headdesks
[0:35] <Datalink> blacklisted the SPI and I2C drivers... rebooted, then did gpio load spi, followed by spidev_test
[0:35] <Datalink> guess what worked!
[0:35] * dennistlg (~snakefrea@e176164012.adsl.alicedsl.de) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:35] <David7> Cheery, in cases like these, the kernel devs end the debate by asking for a patch
[0:36] <Cheery> vlt: well it's okay to have /dev, but why /dev/hda etc. why not just /dev/disk_UID
[0:36] <Cheery> ?
[0:36] <David7> Cheery, /dev/hda was the name originally used when ATA was the primary method of attachment
[0:37] <vlt> Cheery: For convenience?
[0:37] <David7> Cheery, then the SCSI unification came along and everything got moved into /dev/sd
[0:37] <vlt> Cheery: Isn???t /dev/hda just a symlink to the actual /dev/disk/id... ?
[0:37] <maicod> syliss u there ?
[0:37] <Syliss> yeah
[0:37] <David7> Cheery, then someone clever realized the need to unique identification, and /dev/disk-by-uuid/ was invented
[0:38] * gordonDrogon (~gordon@40.Red-2-138-218.dynamicIP.rima-tde.net) Quit (Ping timeout: 245 seconds)
[0:38] <maicod> syliss: the extrememory card I got is verified
[0:38] <Syliss> hmm
[0:38] <Cheery> David7: I see
[0:38] * Simanova (5d80b4da@gateway/web/freenode/ip. has joined #raspberrypi
[0:38] <maicod> yeah I forgot about it :)
[0:38] <maicod> Its on the elinux site
[0:38] <David7> Cheery, so you are seeing the evolution of the mechanism and the old style entries are left for backwards compatibility
[0:38] * Datalink dances the dance of the engineer who finally got a headpoundingly annoying bug fixed...
[0:38] <Simanova> is it possible to use the raspberry pi status led (D7,D8,D9) for other purposes?
[0:38] * maicod thinks he's gonna email Rs Comp.
[0:39] <Cheery> David7: you think I could remove everything that was left for backwards compatibility, and see just the new modern stuff that backbones linux today?
[0:39] <Datalink> Simanova, they're just GPIOs though you'll have to change their assignments somewhere, I don't remember where
[0:39] <David7> But that brings me to a question I have about the Raspian kernel: Why can't I pass root=UUID to the kernel and get it to work?
[0:39] <David7> Cheery, You could try, but the patch would be rejected
[0:39] <Syliss> maicod: have you tried other pus's?
[0:39] <Syliss> psu*
[0:39] * Azuria (~azuria@ Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[0:39] <Datalink> Cheery, that would break so much stuff
[0:40] <Datalink> soooo much stuff ._.
[0:40] * Azuria (~azuria@ has joined #raspberrypi
[0:40] <vlt> David7: Usually it???s ???root=UUID=<UUID>???.
[0:40] <David7> vlt, Yeah, it doesn't work. The boot hangs.
[0:41] <vlt> David7: Ah, ok.
[0:41] * thomashunter (~thomashun@c-67-167-132-241.hsd1.mi.comcast.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:41] <Cheery> Datalink: I want to see that
[0:41] * [SkG] (~sconde@unaffiliated/skg/x-897332) Quit (Quit: Saliendo)
[0:41] <David7> Cheery, but UUID couldn't have been invented back in the days when all computers had hard drives but not necessarily enough ID information for a UUID
[0:42] <maicod> syliss: yeah but those were too weak
[0:42] <Syliss> too weak? what where they rated?
[0:42] <maicod> the Pi was running erraticly
[0:42] <maicod> <1A
[0:42] <David7> An elf is telling me it is dinner time. Adios
[0:42] <maicod> elf is mum ? :)
[0:43] <David7> So, before I go, what USB wireless adapters are most people in here using?
[0:43] * andatche (~andatche@2001:470:91db:2:d846:30dd:608b:b273) Quit (Ping timeout: 260 seconds)
[0:43] <evilbetty> oh boy analog audio on rpi is bad :p
[0:43] <maicod> syliss: one was a cheap wall socket and it said it was 500mA and one was 1A but didnt work right either
[0:43] <Cheery> David7: sure it couldn't have been. But there we have it now.
[0:43] <Syliss> hmm
[0:44] <maicod> evilbetty: not on the raspbian 2012-09-18
[0:44] <evilbetty> hehe
[0:44] <evilbetty> it is to my ear ;)
[0:44] <Datalink> Cheery, okay... breaking stuff is generally not what kernel patching is about, and honestly such a patch intended to break old dependancies will loose the corporate level support you'd need to have a patch go into the kernel
[0:44] <maicod> it was bad before
[0:44] <maicod> evilbetty: your speakers :)
[0:44] * qrwteyrutiyoup (qrwteyruti@unaffiliated/qrwteyrutiyoup) Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[0:44] <evilbetty> lol
[0:44] * bertrik (~quassel@rockbox/developer/bertrik) Quit (Ping timeout: 252 seconds)
[0:44] <Datalink> there's stuff in HP's section of Linux requirements that probably come from elements older than I am
[0:44] <evilbetty> i hear highpitched tones changing in a pattern to the music
[0:45] <Cheery> Datalink: I don't need to get it straight away through. I can fork linux and use the patch in there
[0:45] <vlt> maicod: Analogue audio has improved? Cool! What is different now?
[0:45] <Cheery> Datalink: and I can make it an option
[0:45] <maicod> vlt: on earlier versions every now and then there was an audible ticking now I hear that only when a music starts and ends but the main audio quality sounds fine
[0:46] <Cheery> maicod: oh that was fixed?
[0:46] <maicod> yea
[0:46] <evilbetty> its nice for espeak but i'm not gonna listen to my music collection on it
[0:46] <Datalink> have fun storming the castle then
[0:46] * scale (~valve@p5B24CCE7.dip.t-dialin.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:46] <Cheery> Datalink: I'm also going to ditch Xorg
[0:46] <scale> hi
[0:47] <Cheery> once I get to it
[0:47] <maicod> Cheery: you can hear that there's no disruptions during the sound playing when you play my video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o8wkFXN-uc4
[0:47] <scale> can a Pi make a fire when it run 24/7 ?
[0:47] <maicod> skip to the demo part if u like
[0:47] <vlt> Is it possible to keep the DAC always running to avoid the ticking noise?
[0:47] <vlt> maicod: ^
[0:47] <vlt> Maybe with something liek jackd?
[0:47] <evilbetty> that was proposed
[0:47] <maicod> vlt: I wouldnt know sorry
[0:47] <evilbetty> anyway its not the ticking etc
[0:47] <maicod> the start tick and end tick is still there
[0:48] <evilbetty> but i seem to have highpitched harmonics and a hiss
[0:48] <maicod> evilbetty: you use the 2012-09-18 ?
[0:48] <evilbetty> yes
[0:48] <maicod> oh
[0:48] <maicod> well its acceptable to me now
[0:48] <evilbetty> with the alsa updates of 21 sept too
[0:48] <Cheery> Datalink: and if I've read the stars right, there'll be strong support for what I'll attempt
[0:48] <Datalink> scale, if you don't overclock, it should be fine so long as it's in a typical room temperature, I use mine as a print server among other things, and it doesn't go above 50C under load (kernel compile stayed at 48C at chip) though airflow would be good, so avoid piling stuff on top of it
[0:48] <evilbetty> on speakers its ok
[0:48] <evilbetty> on good headphones its scare ;)
[0:48] * markbook (~markllama@pool-74-104-180-140.bstnma.fios.verizon.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:48] <evilbetty> scary
[0:48] <maicod> evil: you mean the rpi-update stuff?
[0:48] <evilbetty> yes
[0:48] <maicod> oh i've not used headphones
[0:48] <evilbetty> the one thzat made the 7 or 8 alsa channels
[0:49] <evilbetty> im gonna get if a tube amp can gentle out the sounds
[0:49] <evilbetty> but i erm... dont have a tube amp :p
[0:49] <Cheery> Datalink: thing is linux the desktop is starting to advance.
[0:49] <vlt> Is it possible to run an external USB audio device on the rpi?
[0:49] <des2> sure
[0:49] <evilbetty> i dont know if cpu is gonna handle that very well?
[0:50] <vlt> Do I need a special USB Y-cable to power the device?
[0:50] <des2> All it has to do is pass the PWM to USB
[0:50] <maicod> vlt: yeah but don;t know if those usb audio cards are any good
[0:50] <Cheery> Datalink: and I want a desktop experience that'd be exemplary
[0:50] * Simanova (5d80b4da@gateway/web/freenode/ip. Quit (Quit: Page closed)
[0:50] <vlt> maicod: Whut?
[0:50] <maicod> vlt: there's a few listed on elinux verified list I believe
[0:51] <maicod> vlt: your question above
[0:51] <vlt> maicod: I have an NI KA 6.
[0:51] <evilbetty> http://diyaudioprojects.com/Solid/12AU7-IRF510-LM317-Headamp/ wanna make this one, i already got the tubes and the mosfets
[0:51] <maicod> don't know it :)
[0:51] <vlt> maicod: It *is* good ;-)
[0:51] <scale> Datalink, no overclock, room temp is maybe 25C (my parents need it), in GUI i saw CPU Temp like 50-54C
[0:51] <evilbetty> maybe use around 30v instead of 12 to have a bit more headroom in the tubes
[0:51] <maicod> ah then it will probably work
[0:51] <maicod> try it ?
[0:51] <maicod> it won't hurt LOL
[0:52] <evilbetty> today i noticed my rpi locking up forst time with overclocked speeds at even 900Mhz
[0:52] <vlt> maicod: I have to find out first which cable to use.
[0:52] <evilbetty> durig the read thing of an apt-get
[0:52] <Datalink> scale, shouldn't catch fire, but I would suggest keeping it in a spot with airflow if it's running in a warmer room like that for long term circuit health
[0:52] <vlt> maicod: The power coming out of the rpi???s USB seems to be too low for the NI device.
[0:53] <maicod> yeah you need a USB hub
[0:53] <maicod> I got one
[0:53] <maicod> a powered one you need
[0:53] <Syliss> i use a lap dock with my pi
[0:53] <des2> How much current does the In need ?
[0:53] * aphadke (~Adium@c-71-198-5-34.hsd1.ca.comcast.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:53] <evilbetty> i noticed my wireless gamepad only worked during shutdown cycle lol
[0:53] <vlt> maicod: Aah, ok ??? just a hub. Thanks
[0:53] <maicod> vlt: I got this one Ultron UHN-710 powered hub
[0:53] <evilbetty> i thought i had to blame kernel first
[0:53] <evilbetty> but then it seemed a power issue
[0:53] <Datalink> the Pi's USB is, at best, underpowered, 200mA is max load I'd put on it, I try to stick to self-powered devices if I can
[0:54] <maicod> vlt: yeah but it needs to have its own power supply
[0:54] <vlt> maicod: Yeah sure.
[0:54] <evilbetty> optical mouse + wless keyb + wless gamepad (needs more power because it also txes the forcefeedback) was too much unpowered
[0:54] <Datalink> also there's no spike protection, hotplugging high draw devices will cause the Pi to power cycle
[0:54] <maicod> vlt: for a lot of things u need a powered HUB on the Pi. also for wi-fi
[0:54] <evilbetty> when i plugged the hub in a powersupply it was suddenly fixed hehe
[0:54] <Datalink> evilbetty, you should consider a powered HUB if you're running a force feedback device
[0:55] <Datalink> motors=high current draw
[0:55] <evilbetty> the force feedback is on batteries, its the transmitter to the gamepad
[0:55] <evilbetty> its dual direction because of the ffeedback
[0:55] <evilbetty> but the hub is powered
[0:55] <evilbetty> it just works unpowered too and i kinda forgot to plug it in
[0:55] <scale> Datalink, for example? like plugging a cooler fan on pi? if thats possible
[0:56] <evilbetty> the locking up at 900Mhz of earlier worries me more tbh :p
[0:56] <Datalink> scale, I would run the cooler fan off a seperate supply, not the Pi
[0:56] <evilbetty> if u use the 5v pins instead of usb connectors it should work
[0:56] <evilbetty> accordig to the info 5v is powered directly by psu
[0:56] <Datalink> evilbetty, 5v pin is actually after the fuse
[0:57] <evilbetty> yes
[0:57] <evilbetty> but what is the fuse?
[0:57] <Datalink> a 700mA polyfuse which blows if there's an overcurrent and resets the device
[0:57] <evilbetty> k
[0:57] * jodaro (~Adium@c-98-248-194-46.hsd1.ca.comcast.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:58] <Datalink> in the rev 2 board they increased it, in the rev 1, I have to remember to shut down my pi to plug in some devices on the GPIO header or USB
[0:58] <des2> Why would you mix a tube and a mosfet ? That's Blasphamy.
[0:58] <evilbetty> i noticed my samsung lol
[0:58] <evilbetty> oops
[0:58] <evilbetty> just lol
[0:58] <evilbetty> because output transformers are a pain these days
[0:59] * aphadke (~Adium@c-71-198-5-34.hsd1.ca.comcast.net) has left #raspberrypi
[0:59] <evilbetty> i'd run it from about 30v tho maybe a bit more
[0:59] <evilbetty> and perhaps use an opamp as end stage lol
[1:00] <evilbetty> but thats even worse
[1:00] <evilbetty> at least mosfets sound a bit tubish
[1:00] <scale> ok ty all
[1:00] * timewa1ker (~timewalke@h-144-204.a176.priv.bahnhof.se) Quit (Quit: leaving)
[1:00] <evilbetty> i didnt make it yet, but i think it doesnt sound too bad at all
[1:00] <evilbetty> preamped by a tube and class a mosfet end stage
[1:00] <des2> The reason tubes and most bipolar transistor amps sound different is the harmonic distortions.
[1:01] <evilbetty> i know
[1:01] * timewa1ker (~timewalke@h-144-204.a176.priv.bahnhof.se) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:01] <des2> The distorsions produced by tubes sound better.
[1:01] <des2> But you can get the same with MOSFETs.
[1:01] <des2> Although they don't have a nice orange glow.
[1:01] <des2> And have to be replaced every 6 months.

[1:03] <evilbetty> i know
[1:04] <evilbetty> but for headphone amps its not that big of a waste anyway
[1:04] <evilbetty> may be worth it
[1:04] <des2> It's good to build at least one tube thing in your life.

[1:14] <evilbetty> go to aquariumshop and buy a bag of those colored halftransparant pebbles and sell them for alot per small bag
[1:14] <evilbetty> and round patches that u buy at ikea per 20, to put under chair legs
[1:15] <evilbetty> they're also sold per 2 for $xx with another logo and an explanation that one per wall takes all the sound reflections away

[1:17] <evilbetty> funnily enough ppl can still call inside:p
[1:18] <hadifarnoud> in dd, is bs=1m or bs=1M?
[1:18] <evilbetty> but the best is a device to enhance normal cd's to supersoundquality like sacd or what is it
[1:18] <Cheery> window can do that, but not necessarily walls
[1:18] <evilbetty> a wooden box, 9v battery resistor and led
[1:18] <evilbetty> 1M or 4M
[1:18] <evilbetty> whatever u like thats not too small and not too big ;)
[1:19] <evilbetty> ppl pay money for shining a led on a cd, and thir brain makes the hear difference lol
[1:19] <evilbetty> ok it does come with a car dthat changes color after being lighted
[1:19] <hadifarnoud> anyone?
[1:19] <evilbetty> so that they can claim "substance from the card went onto the cd to improve it"
[1:19] <des2> You need a special greem magic marker for your CDs
[1:19] <evilbetty> i just answered
[1:20] <evilbetty> 1M or 4M

[1:25] <David7> hadifarnoud, Make sure you have the right /dev/sd<device letter> so you don't try to backup your hard drive to your hard drive? ;)
[1:25] <evilbetty> too bad the chip doesnt have ADC
[1:25] <evilbetty> or not that i read anywhere anyway
[1:25] <hadifarnoud> David7: df -h, I know ;)
[1:26] <evilbetty> lol
[1:26] <hadifarnoud> I saw a tut that says I have to replace disk1 with rdisk1 for writing and image to SD on Mac. can anyone tell me why is that?
[1:27] <evilbetty> probably because mac names its devices differently than linux
[1:27] <des2> because raw devices are faster
[1:27] <evilbetty> ah :o
[1:27] * cpg is now known as cpg|away
[1:27] <David7> hadifarnoud, # sudo fdisk -l
[1:28] <hadifarnoud> des2 so I should do that for backing up the SD image too?
[1:28] <David7> hadifarnoud, and then # mount
[1:28] <David7> hadifarnoud, Your hard drive will be mounted as /
[1:28] <evilbetty> shouldnt u unmount the device before dding to it
[1:28] <David7> hadifarnoud, The SD card will have a side the same as the label
[1:28] * jbermudes (~jbermudes@unaffiliated/jbermudes) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:29] <hadifarnoud> David7: yeah I'm sure about disk1. I was wondering if i should use rdisk or disk
[1:29] <David7> evilbetty, Uh, he should be dding from it, and it will still work while mounted as long as he doesn't change anything
[1:29] <SIFTU> rdisk sounds like raw disk which would be right.. not sure as I dont have a mac
[1:30] <evilbetty> i know but its not done ;)
[1:30] <hadifarnoud> David7: sudo dd if=/dev/disk1 of=raspian.img does not work
[1:30] <hadifarnoud> should it be of first?
[1:30] <David7> Wait, what? hadifarnoud, are you doing this on a Mac?
[1:31] <hadifarnoud> yes David7
[1:31] <des2> http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/SCSI-2.4-HOWTO/rawdev.html
[1:31] <rikkib> order of dd switches does not matter
[1:31] <evilbetty> its time for me to go to bed
[1:31] <hadifarnoud> why doesn't it work then. says dd: /dev/disk1: No such file or directory
[1:32] <Datalink> hadifarnoud, does /dev/disk1 exist?
[1:32] <rikkib> ls /dev/
[1:32] <rikkib> unplug sd
[1:32] <rikkib> ls /dev/
[1:32] <rikkib> plug in sd
[1:32] <David7> hadifarnoud, A Google search says you want # diskutil list
[1:32] <rikkib> ls /dev/
[1:32] <Datalink> the documentation is using /dev/disk1 as a placeholder
[1:32] <hadifarnoud> rikkib: replug worked
[1:33] <evilbetty> random dding rules :p
[1:33] <hadifarnoud> thanks David7. backing up now. replug helped
[1:33] <David7> hadifarnoud, Roger that
[1:34] <hadifarnoud> thanks des2. nice tutorial on raw devices
[1:34] <rikkib> sudo dd bs=1M (4M if you wish) if=filename of=/dev/sdx (x= your dev)
[1:34] <evilbetty> surely shirly
[1:34] <des2> Kids these days have it so easy. They don't have to learn by accidentally dd'ing to the wrong place in a college compujter center wiping out several people's work...
[1:35] <evilbetty> lol
[1:35] <evilbetty> we have virtualbox these days ;)
[1:35] <David7> hadifarnoud, The version of dd on my Mac doesn't accept bs=1M but you can use bs=$(( 1024 * 1024 ))
[1:35] <des2> (don't ask me how I know that)
[1:35] <Cheery> is there some list about protocols in Udev?
[1:35] * freeAgent (freeAgent@ has joined #raspberrypi
[1:35] <des2> bs=1024k should work
[1:35] <Cheery> after all they need to be .xml specified
[1:35] <hadifarnoud> des2: I can imagine
[1:35] <evilbetty> ah well i guess most ppl that know their way in nix oses have made these booboos
[1:36] <hadifarnoud> I was wondering why dd was so slow. 1m doesn't work then
[1:36] <David7> des2, I didn't see anything in the man page about human readable stuff, and the multiplication thing is portable
[1:36] <rikkib> sync
[1:36] <evilbetty> doesn't it? dd doesnt give output, so maybe it was just working?
[1:36] <rikkib> umount /dev/sdx
[1:37] <David7> evilbetty, I think dd uses a default block size of 512 bytes for historical reasons
[1:37] * simmo (~steve@74-45-32-252.dr01.elko.nv.frontiernet.net) Quit (Quit: simmo)
[1:37] <evilbetty> not too much
[1:38] <des2> Yes historical reasons.
[1:38] <rikkib> dd takes time with 1M. Faster with 4M
[1:38] <evilbetty> reminds me of a mate of mine
[1:38] <des2> As in until just recently disk blocks were really 512
[1:38] <evilbetty> he was gonna compile fsck with ext3 support on his max
[1:38] <evilbetty> mac
[1:38] <evilbetty> and he refused to solve it differently
[1:38] <evilbetty> with all the time segmentation faults, until he just got smart and launched a livecd :p
[1:39] <rikkib> But sync may take longer with 4M write buffer
[1:39] * scale (~valve@p5B24CCE7.dip.t-dialin.net) Quit (Quit: Verlassend)
[1:39] <evilbetty> problem with sdcards vs usbsticks is theres no blinking light to warn its still writing even tho dd is finished
[1:40] <Cheery> evilbetty: I've been wondering that too
[1:40] <evilbetty> so pull it out too fast and its ruined
[1:40] <evilbetty> i guess typing sync may tell its still busy?
[1:40] <evilbetty> not sure tho
[1:40] <David7> hadifarnoud, The man page says you can send SIGINFO to the dd process and get an update. Obviously, you can also use ls to see the file get larger
[1:40] <Cheery> why doesn't memory cards or sticks have write indicator?
[1:40] <evilbetty> hehe we had that discussion ezrlier
[1:41] <evilbetty> USR1 was the signal i think
[1:41] <hadifarnoud> ls seems easier David7
[1:41] <rikkib> sync writes all unwritten buffers to disk (sd)
[1:41] <evilbetty> kill -USR1 ddpid
[1:41] <evilbetty> on linux anyway
[1:42] <rikkib> Control C stops dd
[1:42] <David7> hadifarnoud, Yeah, but the SIGINFO thing is cool
[1:42] <hadifarnoud> i give it a google David7
[1:42] <evilbetty> hmm
[1:42] <evilbetty> lsing to see how far dd is sounds to me like things are mounted when they shouldnt :p
[1:43] <bircoe> as an alternative to dd there's also dcfldd
[1:43] <David7> evilbetty, You do # ls -hl backup.img to see the size of the backup file
[1:43] <bircoe> it gives live status feedback
[1:43] <evilbetty> ooh right

[1:44] <David7> Datalink, If you backup your card, mount it and create a tarball so you don't waste a bunch of space and time copying empty sectors
[1:44] <evilbetty> why not name it superdd :p
[1:45] <evilbetty> but i was going to sleep long time ago
[1:45] <Datalink> David7, I'd just rsync to the linux laptop
[1:46] <Datalink> since that's what I'd use to make the replacement image anyway
[1:46] <grabphil> if this a programming and kid stuff computor whats a good text editor with some fonts and printer dll's
[1:46] <evilbetty> today i saw nice ways to use netcat to make image onto another machine via network
[1:46] <David7> Datalink, the tarball will use less space
[1:46] <Datalink> David7, true
[1:47] <evilbetty> wordpad
[1:47] <grabphil> thats it,,
[1:48] <grabphil> whats a suggestion for web prog editor, or is too weak a language, mid level stuff does look like kids stuff

[1:49] <evilbetty> on linux right?
[1:49] <grabphil> yes
[1:49] <grabphil> and no
[1:50] <evilbetty> on windows i'd use notepad++
[1:50] <Datalink> text editor for doing reports, sounds like
[1:50] <grabphil> i want both somthing that prints out, and something do serious editing
[1:50] <Datalink> what's a lighter program than OpenOffice?
[1:50] <oldtopman> geany/kwrite are pretty good.
[1:50] <evilbetty> geany indeed for linux
[1:50] <oldtopman> For things like word, try Kword, Abiword
[1:50] <evilbetty> but since u answered no on linux on windows id use notepad++
[1:50] <Cheery> I like vim
[1:51] <grabphil> its not like gimp photo is it thats buggy
[1:51] <evilbetty> :o
[1:51] <evilbetty> no geany is just a text editor with syntax highlighting and can compile from within the editor itself
[1:51] <evilbetty> it dosnt make photos of bugs
[1:52] <evilbetty> im not sure who's most confused hatm

[2:16] <fernandocunhajr> Did u ever see emulationstation? It's a great emulator frontend for retropie.
[2:16] <Cheery> nop
[2:17] <Syliss> boom
[2:18] <Cheery> Looks good, the UI could be still better though.

[2:19] <fernandocunhajr> It's ver simple. Functional.
[2:19] <Cheery> yeah, but all that metadata

[2:26] <fernandocunhajr> The metadata is created automatically upon the installation, BUT if you dont want to use the default directories, u will need to change it manually

[2:29] * simmo (~steve@74-45-32-252.dr01.elko.nv.frontiernet.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[2:32] <Cheery> I think I have an idea about it.
[2:32] <fernandocunhajr> All ideas are Welcome :)
[2:32] <Cheery> to get that all metadata, you simply have to construct a web site that connects to the frontend
[2:32] <Cheery> and lets players type a summary
[2:32] <Cheery> wiki
[2:33] <fernandocunhajr> Hmmmm good idea, not too hard to be done!
[2:34] <Cheery> then I also think the author could put a character bar to the top, which indicates that by moving left and right goes letter-wide jumps
[2:34] <Cheery> or perhaps a prefix handler.
[2:35] <Cheery> I believe people will want both keyboards and joystick interfaces
[2:35] <fernandocunhajr> Emulationstation uses right and left to change systems
[2:35] <Cheery> there's better buttons for that
[2:36] <Cheery> in most joypads at least
[2:36] <fernandocunhajr> It's working with keyboard and joysticks
[2:37] <Cheery> he could use tab or L1/R1 to switch system
[2:37] <Cheery> or alternatively, he could stop differentiating between them
[2:37] <Cheery> just give search interface that shows the system and game name
[2:38] <Cheery> also, if there are going to be pictures of each game.. I think they should be something meaningful and visible in some gallery-view.

[2:40] <Cheery> good enough search & filtering.
[2:40] <Cheery> and people will love it
[2:40] <Cheery> But before I'll get to this, I'll have some things to do.
[2:41] <Cheery> The first thing is getting idea of linux input system
[2:41] * int3nz0r (~int3nz0r@ has joined #raspberrypi
[2:41] <Cheery> and understanding best way to get input such that you can make the gaming pleasant.
[2:42] <Cheery> fernandocunhajr: I'm thinking about a schema that is very similar to "press start" in old games
[2:42] <Cheery> The game/frontend asks to press controller button.
[2:43] <Cheery> there's an input device pool which gives it to them, once player has pressed a button
[2:43] <fernandocunhajr> Lotta good ideas man :)
[2:44] <Cheery> the game itself then sees whether it can recognise the controller, and picks a configuration or asks one.. with the relevant map to controller.

[3:08] <Gorroth> hey
[3:08] <Gorroth> is it possible to ssh over usb to the rpi with a fresh raspbian install?
[3:08] <Gorroth> i'm trying to avoid hooking this thing up to a tv or whatever to finalize setup
[3:08] <bircoe> how do you mean via USB?
[3:08] <leftyfb> anyone here use rpi-update? I'm debating it since I'm under the impression that it'll break updating the firmware through the regular debian repositories
[3:09] <bircoe> if you mean with a USB ethernet adapter then yes
[3:09] <Gorroth> bircoe: well, from linux, i'm wondering if there is some sort of dirver that can let me use usb to ssh into the rpi and if the rpi is setup for that
[3:09] <leftyfb> Gorroth: ssh doesn't work like that
[3:09] <leftyfb> you use ssh over the network
[3:10] <leftyfb> as in, over the ethernet or a usb wifi adapter
[3:10] <Gorroth> it does if a driver supportts it
[3:10] <bircoe> I know some Android devices offer USB ethernet via their USB port but the Pi doesn't... so no
[3:10] <Gorroth> ok
[3:10] <leftyfb> you cannot plug in the usb from the rpi to the usb on your computer and ssh to it
[3:11] <Datalink> Gorroth, if you don't finalize the initial setup script, it'll re-run, if you have things you want to do with the system before running that script (say giving this to someone else)
[3:11] <Gorroth> i guess i'll have to do it ghetto style and find out the system's mac address with a script i'll put on the SD
[3:11] <leftyfb> you can use the TTL ports on the RPI to plug in a TTL -> usb adapter and serial console to it
[3:11] <Datalink> Gorroth, it has DHCP, your home router should have a page listing connected devices
[3:12] <Gorroth> Datalink: i think i'll just see MAC addresses; i'll have no idea which one the rpi is
[3:12] <Gorroth> so i'm gonna use a script to write to the SD card what it is
[3:12] <Datalink> Gorroth, that's odd... mine shows IP and MAC, what brand router?
[3:12] <Gorroth> yes, IP and MAC... but that won't tell me which device is the rpi
[3:12] <leftyfb> by the time you write the script, you could have tried to ssh to each of the mac address's in your router's list
[3:12] <bircoe> unpug it and wait for it to dissapear off the list
[3:12] <Datalink> Gorroth, check the page, plug in the Pi, check again... the new device will be the Pi
[3:13] <Gorroth> i've just got lots of devices on the network is all
[3:13] * halfhalo (halfhalo@nasadmin/webteam/halfhalo) Quit (Excess Flood)
[3:13] <Gorroth> man, that's not very computer sciencey of you
[3:13] <Datalink> Gorroth, I'm an EE
[3:13] <bircoe> not everyth8ing needs a complex approach!
[3:14] * SpeedEvil wonders how many pis have the address
[3:14] * halfhalo (halfhalo@nasadmin/webteam/halfhalo) has joined #raspberrypi
[3:14] <Datalink> SpeedEvil, damnit, now I have to go change my Pi's IP
[3:14] <Datalink> cause that's too good not to use!
[3:14] <Gorroth> i think this approach is simpler, especially since i have an airport extreme and would have to find a way to gets a utility running on linux to use it
[3:14] <Gorroth> i'm way lazy for that right now
[3:14] <leftyfb> for i in `seq 2 253`;do nmap -p22 192.168.1.$i;done
[3:15] <bircoe> what about
[3:15] <Gorroth> man, that's not even appropriately bashified! :p
[3:15] <leftyfb> bashified?
[3:15] <SpeedEvil> bircoe: well, yes, but that's a routabke IP
[3:15] <Gorroth> for ((i=2; i<=254; i=i+1)) ; do nmap -p 22 192.168.1.$i ; done
[3:15] <leftyfb> :/
[3:16] <leftyfb> what's the advantage of that over the one I posted?
[3:16] <Gorroth> but the thing is, i think i read that raspbian doesn't have ssh running by default; am i wrong?
[3:16] <Gorroth> leftyfb: it doesn't use a subprocess
[3:16] <Gorroth> for the sequence
[3:16] <Datalink> bircoe, that puts it into the public IP space, I think Google owns that one... could be wrong
[3:16] <leftyfb> right, cuz a 1 253 seq takes up so much cpu power
[3:17] <bircoe> if it's on a private nat network theres nothing wrong with using it.
[3:17] <Datalink> Gorroth, there's no startup run from /boot/ though, so you will have to drop it in /etc/rc.local with a Linux system
[3:17] * simmo (~steve@74-45-32-252.dr01.elko.nv.frontiernet.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[3:17] <Datalink> but ifconfig > /boot/ifconfig.log would do it
[3:17] <Datalink> that'd get you IP and MAC info in one shot
[3:18] <Gorroth> yeah, i'll do that while i'm getting this ssh turned on
[3:19] <Datalink> erf, yeah I see, no MAC on the board, that's annoyin
[3:19] <Datalink> annoying*
[3:20] <Datalink> also if the router has netbios, it should show up as RASPBERRYPI for device name (Netgear does this)
[3:20] <Datalink> I do still need to name my pi
[3:21] <SIFTU> you guys make life harder than it should be. nmap -p22 192.168.1.{2..253}
[3:21] <Gorroth> i don't think my apple airport extreme does anything so fancy as that, but it does do bonjour
[3:21] <bircoe> DD-WRT owns them all
[3:22] <Gorroth> SIFTU: nice!
[3:22] <Datalink> Gorroth, acutally apple stuff does the netbios for name detection... since there is unix somewhere under all that polishing

[3:28] <Gorroth> i never built one of those
[3:28] <bircoe> my Audi has a spot in it's instrument cluster where a small LCD screen is optional, not exactly sure for what, but it's just blacked out at the moment, will be finding a small nice LCD to fit behind it and show the cars speed and other GPS tidbits

[3:29] <bircoe> nah, theres the plastic clear panel stopping you from getting yoru fingers too close, maybe one of the nokia clone LCD's that have been doing the Arduino rounds
[3:30] <bircoe> perhaps this

[5:17] <midnightyell> I think the best deal I've seen and paid attention to was $29 for 32G class 10
[5:17] <Blu3Knight> des2: That is what USB is for :)

[5:19] <midnightyell> my desktop is still 50x faster
[5:19] <SIFTU> bit more than 50x
[5:19] <Blu3Knight> I have tested the speed of all of them and even the fastest Class 10 will give me 5Mb/sec write.
[5:20] <midnightyell> probably

[5:23] <Essobi> sup peebles
[5:23] <midnightyell> the pi's a windup toy; very amusing; impressive even, but not a desktop replacement
[5:23] <des2> Well I was likening the SSD to a sports car....
[5:23] <midnightyell> aha
[5:24] <des2> The Pi we can see as a volkswagon.
[5:24] <Prinler> one that has a high failure rate :p
[5:24] <midnightyell> the pi was the snow tires
[5:24] <midnightyell> Well; that changes Everything
[5:24] <midnightyell> Yugo, then
[5:24] <Prinler> how are you going to hook a SSD drive to the pi?
[5:24] <des2> He's using USB
[5:24] <Blu3Knight> des2: I will tell you the rates as soon as the DD is done ??? will boot the PI and give the results from the same SSB
[5:25] <midnightyell> you could NFS mount it :)
[5:25] <Blu3Knight> des2: There is a difference even with USB
[5:25] <Datalink> a Pi is a golf cart...
[5:25] <Blu3Knight> Datalink: Now??? that is an insult....
[5:26] <Datalink> to the Pi or the cart?
[5:26] <SIFTU> Blu3Knight: should have good iops at least
[5:26] <Blu3Knight> I would say SMART car ???. I have fun with them all the time and I have a very small car as well.

[5:26] <Blu3Knight> SIFTU: For $30 I see it better alternative then any SD / USB / etc

[6:12] <simula_> my pi is a guilt-free 24x7 irc client :)
[6:12] <nsgn> here's a question; is it going to hurt debian/lxde if i put my pi in a situation where i just cut its power with an insteon appliance module and provide it power again when i want it to turn on and do its simple job?
[6:13] * bizarro_1 (~bizarro_1@154.Red-193-153-236.dynamicIP.rima-tde.net) Quit (Quit: Saliendo)
[6:13] <nsgn> i'm just making it display some info on a LCD monitor and want to cut it on and off with the monitor when i leave home. already have an insteon module nearby that cuts power to the LCD. safe to kill the pi's power like that or will it corrupt debian? i know hardware wise the pi will be ok but i guess i'm worried about the filesystem
[6:14] <SIFTU> nsgn: thats probably not a good idea
[6:14] <nsgn> :/ how would i accomplish this, then?
[6:14] <SIFTU> power on it ok, but you have risk of filesystem corruption on the sudden off
[6:14] <nsgn> having a graphical display i can cut/reconnect power to at will like an appliance?
[6:15] <SIFTU> nsgn: you want to issue a "shutdown -h now" wait 30 seconds, then cut the power
[6:15] <atouk> monitor voltage at a gpio pin and wne the pi see's a state change, run a powerdown script
[6:15] <nsgn> that adds a lot of complexity
[6:15] <nsgn> like..transforming the 110vac down to something safe for gpio
[6:16] <nsgn> and timing the insteon module to shut off a safe time after
[6:16] <nsgn> not impossible but seems more complex? is it possible to configure debian/x to run in such a configuration where a sudden cut of power is safe? a read only mode?
[6:16] <nsgn> or is X too dependent upon r/w disk access?
[6:17] * simula_ (~Mark@c-24-16-9-160.hsd1.wa.comcast.net) Quit (Ping timeout: 255 seconds)
[6:17] <SIFTU> everything needs r/w
[6:17] <SIFTU> not just X
[6:18] <nsgn> then perhaps is there some way to set up the filesystem that is safer for this type of usage?
[6:18] <des2> I miss when things had a physical read only switch.
[6:18] <nsgn> des2, most SD cards do..
[6:18] <SIFTU> yeah sd cards do
[6:18] <nsgn> but i dont imagine my pi would start up too happy if i used that
[6:19] <des2> Why not ?
[6:19] <SIFTU> nsgn: I dont know of any filesystems which like it's power being pulled when it's int he middle of something
[6:19] <SIFTU> even jouraling filesystems can have problems with it
[6:20] <des2> Well here's an interesting thing.
[6:20] <des2> A read only distribution for the PI
[6:20] <des2> There's no reason there can't be.
[6:20] <nsgn> hmm. frustrating. all this is is just a browser refreshing a page from a server on a screen. i dont feel like this should have to be babied like a full computer
[6:20] <nsgn> i understand why debian comes out of the box this way
[6:20] <SIFTU> yeah you can mount stuff which needs write access into ram
[6:20] * Milos|Netbook_ (~Milos@pdpc/supporter/student/milos) has joined #raspberrypi

[6:21] <des2> That move things to memory.
[6:21] <SIFTU> nsgn: it is not bullet proof by any means
[6:22] <SIFTU> actually the pi with sd is the most unstable system I have dealt with
[6:23] <nsgn> also, totally unrelated, DARN you LCD manufacturers for making most monitors i own not have DVI ports
[6:23] * Milos|Netbook (~Milos@pdpc/supporter/student/milos) Quit (Ping timeout: 246 seconds)
[6:23] <nsgn> never had reason to notice such a thing until raspberry pi
[6:23] <SIFTU> what did you use??
[6:23] <SIFTU> vga?
[6:24] <simula_> ewww
[6:24] <midnightyell> cga?
[6:25] <nsgn> SIFTU, i have a bunch of 16 and 18.5 inch LCD monitors from several years ago
[6:25] <nsgn> they all are VGA only
[6:26] <nsgn> and honestly, at that screen size and resolution, windows looks identical on them through VGA as it would through DVI if it had it
[6:26] * jodaro (~Adium@75-101-50-37.dsl.static.sonic.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[6:26] <nsgn> its just frustrating now that I want to do stuff with the Pi to find that all these stupid monitors i have can't talk pi
[6:27] <SIFTU> I'm not a video perfectionist by any means, but I can tell VGA to DVI
[6:27] <simula_> you can get an hdmi to vga adapter
[6:27] <midnightyell> lots of cheapo DVI monitors at goodwill
[6:27] <SIFTU> simula_: that would probably cost more than a monitor with DVI :)
[6:28] <nsgn> SIFTU, i'd challenge you to do so on a 16inch LCD. it's really no great difference. but sadly i'm not given the choice on such units since, as they were made to be bottom line cheap, they skipped on the connector
[6:28] <nsgn> its not a biggie. mainly just annoyed one of the two monitors i have nailed up to the wall for these heads up displays is VGA only. what a rip :)
[6:29] <SIFTU> nsgn: I do have monitors with both VGA and DVI and I can tell, but it is a 24" screen
[6:29] <nsgn> oh yeah. you can deff see it at higher resolutions
[6:29] <nsgn> i'm talking like..1024x768 :)
[6:29] <nsgn> cause thats the most this monitor can display. haha
[6:35] <nsgn> what's the power consumption measured at the wall outlet for a pi?
[6:36] * Datalink (~Datalink@unaffiliated/datalink) Quit (Ping timeout: 240 seconds)
[6:37] <des2> The pi itself draws about 2.4 Watts
[6:37] <des2> Depending on your adapter efficiency it'll somewhere under 4 watts.
[6:38] <nsgn> nice and slim. i'm trying to replace an intel atom based system i have driving two screens on the wall in the office
[6:39] <nsgn> i'd need two PIs to do the job the one atom does, but the atom pulls about 30 to 40w..so even both PIs would be less
[6:39] <nsgn> and they'd be silent. the atom is fan cooled, and makes an annoying whine
[6:39] <des2> my intel atom draws 12 watts at the wall outlet
[6:39] <nsgn> what board or barebone?
[6:39] <des2> my atom has no fan.
[6:39] <des2> D510MO
[6:39] <nsgn> though i know i do not have the current state of the art atom box :P

[9:32] <tarheelbandb> hello folks
[9:32] <phr> howdy
[9:32] <Sv> hi
[9:32] <tarheelbandb> finally decided what to do with my pi afer i saw this post on hackaday about a pandora radio running off a beaglebone
[9:33] <tarheelbandb> anyone here familiar with interfacing LCDs?
[9:34] * Orion_ (~Orion_@host-74-211-2-128.beyondbb.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[9:34] <tarheelbandb> or can anyone point me to a tutorial on getting the lcd to display information from a program]
[9:35] <Xark> tarheelbandb: Like http://learn.adafruit.com/drive-a-16x2-lcd-directly-with-a-raspberry-pi
[9:35] <tarheelbandb> i have my lcd running properly
[9:35] <tarheelbandb> my issue is the software side. sorry for not being clear
[9:35] * Azuria (~azuria@ Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[9:36] <tarheelbandb> i want to display track information, time, etc from pianobar to the lcd
[9:36] <Xark> tarheelbandb: OK, well that tutorial also covers using Python to drive the LCD.
[9:36] <tarheelbandb> is that something that needs to be done from the source of pianobar or something i can do with a separate python script?
[9:37] <Xark> Sorry, I am not familiar with pianobar.
[9:38] <tarheelbandb> that tutorial, which i have followed already, doesnt cover displaying information from another program. (pianobar is this pretty cool command line Pandora player)

[9:38] <tarheelbandb> i have that up and running proper as well on my pi, im stuck at getting the information from the prograam to display to the lcd
[9:39] <Xark> tarheelbandb: From their web site, you sure looks like you can interact with it via Python.
[9:39] <tarheelbandb> who's website?
[9:40] * Azuria (~azuria@ has joined #raspberrypi
[9:40] <Xark> http://6xq.net/projects/pianobar/ (assuming this is what you are talking about)
[9:42] <tarheelbandb> this is a generic question not specific to pianobar
[9:43] <tarheelbandb> to display status of a program, must i write a script that "pulls" that info or must i edit the source of that program to "push" that info to the lcd?
[9:44] <linuxstb> Either approach should work. The second would be cleaner.
[9:47] * dreamon_ (~dreamon@unaffiliated/dreamon) has joined #raspberrypi
[9:47] <tarheelbandb> i see. i am just getting into python but assuming i edit the source, it seems that i would reference the gpiolcd library and tell the program to "print" to the lcd?
[9:47] <GGon> hm
[9:48] <GGon> newark sent out my clear case
[9:48] <GGon> it shows up tomorrow
[9:48] <Xark> tarheelbandb: Well, since there is an "API" to get this info out of pianobar (e.g., they provide an example shell script), you don't need to modify the source.
[9:48] <tarheelbandb> and assuming i go the python route i would tell the script to "pull" the data and print to the lcd
[9:48] <GGon> i forgot about it. it was on backorder heh
[9:49] <Xark> tarheelbandb: Generally. You could for example, update it once a second.

[9:49] <tarheelbandb> I am marginally familiar with API's but i only understand them as a means of pulling data from a website.
[9:53] <Datalink> an API in general is an interface between a closed or confusing codebase and a language

[9:54] <Datalink> for example, APIs for websites, as you mentioned tarheelbandb, but also APIs for interfacing with hardware which might talk in short lookup tables at best.. I'm actually about to write an API between languages I use and an SPI controlled OLED for a project
[9:54] <tarheelbandb> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lScSBePs6lU this is the video is the extend of my knowledge of API's.
[9:54] <yaMatt> my RS raspberry pi turned up last night!
[9:54] <yaMatt> sadly it's not a UK one
[9:54] <linuxstb> yaMatt: Did they email you before shipping it?
[9:54] <evilbetty> now u have to wait till your micro usb cable, power supply and large sd card arrives? ;)
[9:54] <Hoerie> mine turned up on wednesday
[9:54] <yaMatt> linuxstb, they did not
[9:55] <Hoerie> linuxstb: for me they did
[9:55] <linuxstb> ;)
[9:55] <evilbetty> i wouldnt know i received mine last monday
[9:55] <Datalink> tarheelbandb, think of them as a stack of functions you can use to do things...
[9:55] <yaMatt> RS have a communication problem
[9:55] <evilbetty> from element14
[9:55] <tarheelbandb> so Xark mentioned that pianobar has an API. how do i go about "pulling" from the api
[9:55] <yaMatt> well it's my second pi and I usually have that junk lying around so I'm always prepared for a surprise Pi arrival :D
[9:55] <tarheelbandb> website api's seem more intuitive to pull from than a program that is running already
[9:56] <evilbetty> i was lucky i had a micro usb cable from phone, and a samsugn tab usb charger ^:p
[9:56] <Datalink> APIs are an interface, don't just pull... but there should be a list of functions with the API
[9:56] <Hoerie> they sent me a mail on the 5th saying they'd dispatched it, the package stated it had been packed on the 28th
[9:56] <evilbetty> and me 2 GB sdcard was too small, but i just changed on cmdthing.txt to have / from usb stick and only /boot from sd
[9:56] <yaMatt> actually yeah, I am lacking a usb mains adapter, my gf thought she had one but we can't find it
[9:57] <evilbetty> but i'm happy with mine now that i got lirc_rpi working :p
[9:57] <yaMatt> are Farnell shipping UK Pis?
[9:58] <evilbetty> maybe it depends where you are?
[9:58] <yaMatt> as in, has someone received one?
[9:58] <evilbetty> hoy cqn u seeM
[9:58] <evilbetty> oops
[9:58] <yaMatt> hahah
[9:58] * Datalink noms on Newark US Pi
[9:58] <yaMatt> what on earth was that?
[9:59] <evilbetty> it was my azerty keyb jumping in qwerty
[9:59] <evilbetty> mine says clearly "make in uk" if thats what u mean
[9:59] <evilbetty> but im in belgium so thats close to uk
[9:59] <Hoerie> I hope it says made in uk and not make ;-)
[9:59] <evilbetty> lol
[10:00] <tarheelbandb> for example the pianobar "Eventcmd"
[10:00] <evilbetty> ordered it last tuesday or so and had it next monday
[10:00] <tarheelbandb> for example the pianobar "Eventcmd" can output to an external program . i think i found my solution
[10:01] <yaMatt> evilbetty, from Farnell?
[10:01] <Xark> tarheelbandb: Sounds very promising. :)
[10:02] <evilbetty> element14 i guess that is farnell yes
[10:02] <Tz1m1sc3> yes it is

[10:18] <tarheelbandb> i've gotten cherokee to compile on my pogoplug
[10:18] <tarheelbandb> u may have luck with the pi
[10:18] <evilbetty> and it supports cgi directly?
[10:19] <evilbetty> without fastcgi wrappers and stuff like that?

[10:27] <evilbetty> how do u crosscompile something for rpi that requires extra libs?
[10:27] <rymate1234> with great difficulty
[10:27] <evilbetty> i mean a hello world compiles fine on my desktop
[10:27] <evilbetty> hehe
[10:27] <evilbetty> i guess having those libs for x86 on ur desktop is not enough :p
[10:28] <Tz1m1sc3> apt-get install [extras lib name]-dev
[10:28] <evilbetty> thats enough even to crosscompile?
[10:28] <xranby> evilbetty: for jogl we created a selfcontained header that can be used to cross compile code for the pi without having access to the binary blobs
[10:28] <rymate1234> tbh I don't cross conpile
[10:28] <xranby> also in JOGL we load librarys dynamically
[10:28] <rymate1234> I comp[ile straight on pi
[10:28] <xranby> so no compile time dependency
[10:28] <evilbetty> right
[10:29] <rymate1234> *compile
[10:29] * Pickley (~Pickley@ has joined #raspberrypi
[10:29] <evilbetty> hehe wel im compiling cherokee now on the rpi
[10:30] <xranby> evilbetty: if you want to use this header to access opengl es then have a go at : http://jogamp.org/git/?p=jogl.git;a=blob_plain;f=src/newt/native/bcm_vc_iv.h;h=b43483c10f1f7ac181c39085d523715accc0e685;hb=HEAD
[10:30] <evilbetty> but i have an i7 catching dust that would like to take over the comp!iling from the rpi :p
[10:30] <evilbetty> i'll have a look thanks
[10:30] <xranby> evilbetty: bcm_host_init is available after you have ldopen the broadcom libEGL
[10:31] <Tz1m1sc3> inside of an qemu-chroot like envirroment
[10:31] <xranby> because the broadcom libEGL depends on the libbcm* stuff itself
[10:31] * Azuria (~azuria@ has joined #raspberrypi
[10:31] * kvarley (~kevin@unaffiliated/kvarley) has joined #raspberrypi
[10:31] <xranby> so you do not need to load this lib in your code
[10:31] <xranby> it get loaded automagically by ldopen
[10:31] <evilbetty> actually i'm not sure what ur talking about :p
[10:32] <xranby> i am trying to give you the solution to your question: (10:27:20) evilbetty: how do u crosscompile something for rpi that requires extra libs?
[10:32] <evilbetty> i just meant any lib-dev really :p
[10:32] <xranby> ok
[10:32] <xranby> i was mostly thinking about the pi specific parts
[10:32] <xranby> like the gpu blobs
[10:32] <xranby> that we only have arm binary for
[10:32] <evilbetty> thats for the future
[10:32] <evilbetty> but its bookmarked anyway
[10:33] <xranby> i reccomend you to use the linaro cross compile tools
[10:33] <evilbetty> nah say i write a program that makes use of libsdlaudio-dev and it compiles fine on dekstop, it'll probably compile fine on rpi too, but what about crosscompiling on desktop for pi
[10:33] <xranby> evilbetty: here is how to do it
[10:34] <xranby> first install a cross compile toolchain
[10:34] <evilbetty> have those already
[10:34] <xranby> this will give you a gcc that can compile on the desktop for the pi
[10:34] <xranby> ok
[10:34] <evilbetty> used ct-ng and my crosscompiles works fine
[10:34] <xranby> then you need to setup a "chroot" filled with all the arm compiled librarys that you want to link against
[10:34] <evilbetty> already compiled a kernel with it
[10:34] <evilbetty> :o
[10:34] <xranby> you can for example place a rasbian filesystem on your desktop harddrive
[10:35] <xranby> so that you get access to all the rasbian librarys
[10:35] <evilbetty> yes so having the x86 equivalent on desktop is not enough right
[10:36] <xranby> exactly
[10:36] <xranby> this is the main reason why we have "SDK" for mobile phone developement
[10:36] <xranby> the SDK contains a copy of all the librarys you want to link against
[10:36] <evilbetty> i see
[10:36] <xranby> for the Pi you will have to prepare a Pi SDK yourself
[10:37] <evilbetty> can u just copy all libs of rpi to desktop and give that folder to the cross linker?
[10:39] <xranby> byyes
[10:39] <xranby> yes

[11:41] <evilbetty> i cant wait for my 5 dollar stellaris arm boards to arrive :p

[11:44] <evilbetty> isnt $15 for a smart rgb led a bit much?
[11:44] <Datalink> find it cheaper

[11:47] <Datalink> I'll second the lame... :P
[11:47] <Datalink> I still need to set up various boot scripts to show various colors for technicolor boot
[11:47] <Datalink> though I'll probably more generally use it for showing something more common, donno yet

[11:50] <booyaa> Datalink: how have you rigged up your blinkm to your pi?
[11:51] * booyaa hasn't played with his in ages
[11:51] <booyaa> klast time i rigged mine up to a wii nunchuck to change the colours when you twiddled the joystick
[11:53] <Datalink> you actually can hook a blinkm almost directly into a ribbon cable on the 3.3V side, gnd will need a wire, but it's actually + d c in the same order as 3vc sda sck on the pi's connector
[11:54] <Datalink> currently it's breadboard wired, 3v3 off the pi's powering my breadboard power bus, blinkm's got 2 wires from the pi breakout to handle the data
[11:54] <Datalink> blinkm's an AVR so it's happy at 3v3
[11:54] <booyaa> Datalink: sweet do i need any resistors to protect the pi?
[11:55] <Datalink> booyaa, the blinkm is running at 3v3 as I power it from the Pi's 3v3 pin so no overvolt risk, if you run it at 5v then you will need an i2c voltage converter

[12:00] <Datalink> http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=44&t=11969 <- change line 25 in i2c_functions.c of this from /dev/i2c-3 to /dev/i2c-0 to reflect the different location of i2c for the pi's GPIO header
[12:00] <Datalink> sorry, wrong link
[12:00] <Datalink> https://github.com/scottellis/overo-blinkm
[12:00] <evilbetty> hmm
[12:00] <Datalink> I compiled it, tested it, then put it in my /usr/local/bin directory so I can run blinkm from anywhere
[12:00] <evilbetty> that brings me to a question
[12:00] <evilbetty> do gpio pins for i2c autmatically get set to be i2c pins instead of gpio when loading the kernel module?
[12:01] <evilbetty> the i2c kernel module
[12:01] <Datalink> hm, I apparently put it in /usr/bin... /usr/local/bin would be prefered

[12:04] <Datalink> oh I do load i2c-dev in /dev/modules to make it work
[12:04] <evilbetty> ah right
[12:04] <evilbetty> so that does set the pins to i2c in the chip?
[12:04] <evilbetty> thats what i wanted to know
[12:05] <Datalink> evilbetty, I think they do, honestly not 100% sure
[12:05] <Datalink> I don't use GPIO function currently so I don't pay attention much
[12:05] <evilbetty> k
[12:05] <evilbetty> i guess its time to get a collection of i2c chips now :p

[12:14] <Datalink> idea being I reduce the amount of non-Pi control to a minimum... folks should be able to pull the package, install it and have magic happen when they plug their pi into it... or... if they wanna hack, be able to without having to get out a programmer

[13:12] <Caver> I guess it comes down to ... what you want to do
[13:12] <Caver> for me .. very useful :)
[13:13] <InControl> You can do everything the gertboard does on a breadboard
[13:13] <Datalink> it's handy if you're learning, or if you have wiring applications that the gertboard provides, yeah, but if you're like some of us who buy bare bone parts and wire them together, it's not gonna be ideal
[13:13] <InControl> On the one hand the really simple PiFace looks a lot better
[13:13] <Datalink> it has a purpose, and looks like it'd fill that purpose well
[13:13] <InControl> for people learning
[13:14] <Datalink> I'm working on an application 'pi plate' myself
[13:14] <InControl> Gertboard IMHO is to complex for people learning for the first time
[13:14] <Datalink> donno, do we have a standard 'shield' name for the Pi yet?
[13:14] * Datalink shrugs
[13:14] <Datalink> it has it's uses, like I said
[13:15] <Datalink> my breadboard's enough for me, but I'm not gonna deny others are more confortable with different environments
[13:15] <Caver> it's things like getting good timings etc that will be useful for me
[13:15] <Datalink> oh right that one... was looking at it
[13:15] <InControl> I have a Gertboard but not terribly impressed
[13:15] <InControl> just a bunch of stuff chucked on a board
[13:15] <Caver> interesting - how come?
[13:16] <InControl> I feel it would be better as a set of modules
[13:16] <Caver> fair enough
[13:17] <InControl> It is kind of random

[13:17] <Datalink> okay I'm getting giddy looking at the little video pi-face has on their site fo their pi cycling the relays, I'm either sleep deprived or eager to have that kinda potential...
[13:18] <Datalink> I'm kinda gonna go with sleep deprived on that one cause I've got morning class in 2 hours...
[13:18] <Caver> grins
[13:18] <InControl> Don't get me wrong, I suppose it is useful to have these things on a board, but not really very good for the intended education user
[13:19] <Datalink> ugh, I actually have to get some PR4 just to work out the proper form factor for my breadboards... I just had an idea to use the stackable method used by my USB TV tuner card...

[13:20] <InControl> The stack method seems good to start with but it doesn't work so well in practice
[13:21] <InControl> it is a bit precarious, especially if you have buttons to press on board
[13:21] <InControl> I think the way the gertboard connects using a ribbon is better
[13:21] <InControl> although stupid that the ribbon has to be folded
[13:21] <InControl> should have been astraight connection
[13:23] <Datalink> yeah, I'm kinda worried about the buttons I'm going to use, gonna end up having to make a plastic piece with feet, I think >.<
[13:24] <Caver> another job for the reprap

[13:48] <DomasoFan> hi guys. so. back again. my pi now works fortunately. anyone knows if i can put all 256 mb of ram just to the CPU or does it need some mb back at the GPU? i am working at the command line anyway.
[13:49] <Datalink> GPU needs some memory to work from, a 240/16 split works fine for me
[13:50] <DomasoFan> thats the lowest you can get at the gpu. don't need graphics so wonder if you also could put all 256 to the cpu. raspi-config is just able to give 240 mb to cpu and 16 mb to gpu.
[13:50] <Datalink> hm, no surprise, the LFS group has a pi instruction page...
[13:50] <chithead> gpu needs some memory for the framebuffer and other things

[13:52] <evilbetty> a gpu booting the rpi :o
[13:52] <evilbetty> why is all this so complicated :p
[13:52] <Datalink> evilbetty, the GPU is the bootrom... this is well documented
[13:52] <Matt> because it's a SoC
[13:53] <DomasoFan> ah alright. would just need 5 mb or so more to make a app working on the pi. then thinking of using something else.
[13:53] <Datalink> also yeah, SoC...

[13:53] <Jck_true> evilbetty: World is a complicated place bro
[13:53] <evilbetty> seems so yes
[13:53] <Datalink> he says as he's trying ot make qemu wrappers work on his pi...
[13:53] <Jck_true> DomasoFan: Swap then?
[13:54] <evilbetty> or kill rsyslogd :p
[13:54] <Datalink> heh, yeah, or find some other vital linux system to kill
[13:55] <chithead> vital? rsyslogd is not even shipped by many distros
[13:55] <Datalink> I say vital in that it's in the default boot order, not that you'll kill your system for having one less daemon
[13:55] <DomasoFan> hehe. no i just tried a softsynth with a better instrument library attached to it which has around 241 mb so that doesn't completely fit into the ram.
[13:55] <evilbetty> and whats that console kit daemon anyway using almost 4 rams
[13:55] <chithead> find a way to reduce the size of that library
[13:55] <Datalink> rams, is that like quads in star trek?
[13:56] <evilbetty> 1 ram or more rams

[14:00] <Datalink> it's not a bad SoC for the price
[14:00] <DomasoFan> no not really. i still have room to the top. haven't overclocked it yet. still at its defaults.
[14:01] * halfhalo (halfhalo@nasadmin/webteam/halfhalo) has joined #raspberrypi
[14:02] <Datalink> I've got no plan to OC mine right now, media is kinda secondary to my needs for a linux box with GPIO header
[14:02] <evilbetty> i noticed my rpi yesterday locking up for first time with overclock
[14:03] <evilbetty> when apt-get started reading the database or whatever
[14:04] <DomasoFan> ah fun times. i had no luck with my transcend 16 gb sd card class 10 yesterday. didn't liked it all that much. was listed though on the wiki. put now a microsd 8 gb class 4 card in which works.
[14:04] <evilbetty> what happened exactly?
[14:04] <DomasoFan> well it didn't boot. i am blind so i can't tell you what was lighted or so.
[14:05] <evilbetty> my lockups yesterday started with sdcard i think
[14:05] <evilbetty> i could still ssh to the rpi, but all commands froze
[14:05] <evilbetty> and the activity light was constant on
[14:05] <evilbetty> once i put it back to 700Mhz everything went fine
[14:06] <evilbetty> anyway i like running it on 900Mhz, seems to make most difference, once above 900Mhz speed agin is only very small
[14:07] <evilbetty> but i only tried by calculating pi on my pi :p
[14:07] <Datalink> DomasoFan, I've stuck with class 4 on my 16GB card
[14:07] <evilbetty> i got a sony class 10 that mentions 94MB/s
[14:07] <evilbetty> and it feels alot faster than my cheap c4 sandisk
[14:08] <DomasoFan> Datalink: seems class 4 is most stable. its quite slow on updating but well. what will you expect of a box which just uses 3 watts or so.
[14:09] <evilbetty> miracles hehe
[14:09] <Datalink> DomasoFan, I have yet to really notice, but I'm not doing massive disk IO apps... X is a bit slugish but I don't use it unless I have to (last time was to enable my bluetooth keyboard, then nothing needed GUI save some graphic tests)
[14:09] <Datalink> I'm a console user though, it's more natural to me

[14:16] <yaMatt> heheh
[14:16] <Datalink> oal, yeah... I just reolized, you're running the pi off the battery, not the battery off the pi, could probably use a charge

[14:16] <DomasoFan> oalusing a 4 port usb hub over here with a 2.1 amperes power supply. works nice. have a bunch of power until to the top so multiple pis would be possible.
[14:16] <evilbetty> snot enough

[14:16] <evilbetty> read

[14:17] <oal> Hmm, I'll give the charger a full charge first and try again.

[15:10] <Peetz0r> but hey, I live near Amsterdam, and have FTTH :)
[15:10] <Peetz0r> Yes, there's fiber from the world's largest IX to my house :)
[15:12] <evilbetty> ok
[15:12] <evilbetty> does anyone know if i use lirc_rpi module what /dev/ it'll create
[15:13] <Peetz0r> nope, but won't dmesg mention it whenever you plugin your hardware?
[15:13] <evilbetty> im trying to follow some lirc tutorials but most assume u use /dev/ttySn
[15:13] <Peetz0r> sounds reasonable
[15:13] <Peetz0r> but there's no /dev/tty* device being created at all?
[15:13] <evilbetty> well thats for lirc_serial
[15:14] <Peetz0r> ah, I see
[15:14] <evilbetty> lirc_rpi uses gpio pins of rpi
[15:14] <Peetz0r> ok :)
[15:14] <evilbetty> but ur tight
[15:14] <evilbetty> right
[15:14] <evilbetty> i just just check dmesg after loading the modules

[16:04] <Peetz0r> mine is at 41.2
[16:04] <evilbetty> 35.2 here
[16:04] <evilbetty> but i just rebooted
[16:04] <evilbetty> and the windows are open in the room where its placed :p
[16:05] <DomasoFan> wow. mine is in a case. maybe thats why its so warm.
[16:05] <evilbetty> probably
[16:05] <Peetz0r> I run raspbmc, so I have constant cpu usage. also, my Pi is in the hottest room of the house
[16:05] <Peetz0r> DomasoFan: definately
[16:05] <Peetz0r> but 50 degrees is still no problem
[16:05] <evilbetty> yesterdau when i turned on the heating my rpi froze tho with a bit of overclocking enabled

[16:06] * halfhalo (halfhalo@nasadmin/webteam/halfhalo) has joined #raspberrypi
[16:06] <Peetz0r> as ong as yopu don't touch 80C, there should be no problems

[16:07] <evilbetty> didnt they put rpi in an oven up to 180??
[16:07] <Peetz0r> the temperature doesn't influence the performance, so as long as it's safe (below 80), you should have no problems with overclocking or anything
[16:07] <DomasoFan> maybe the ModMyPi cases are much more isolated.
[16:07] * Azuria (~azuria@ has joined #raspberrypi
[16:08] <Peetz0r> I don't have a case
[16:08] <evilbetty> im not sure what happened tho it always happened when running an apt-get update or install in the Reading package lists... 16% part
[16:08] <evilbetty> it froze the sdcard i think

[16:08] <evilbetty> since i could still ssh to rpi,but all commands froze
[16:08] <evilbetty> and activity led was steady on
[16:09] <Peetz0r> yeah, that sounds like a broken SD card
[16:09] <evilbetty> its a new sdcard :/
[16:09] <Peetz0r> reading stuff in apt-get uses I/O a lot
[16:09] <evilbetty> and it works fine all the other times
[16:09] <Peetz0r> new sdcards aren't any better than old ones
[16:09] <evilbetty> when i dropped to 700Mhz it stopped happening too, and now it works fine on 900Mhz too, so maybe it was really the heat in my room
[16:10] <evilbetty> it actually only happened after i overclocked to 1Ghz
[16:10] <evilbetty> but kept happening on 900 etc too until i went back to 700Mhz
[16:10] <evilbetty> then it stopped happening
[16:11] <evilbetty> anyway i run back on 900Mhz today and it didnt happen yet, so maybe i shouldt go to 1Ghz anymore:p

[16:44] <datagutt> ftw*
[16:44] <evilbetty> nes games worked fine
[16:44] <evilbetty> but snes games slow down the audio here
[16:44] <datagutt> i heard psx is working? But not very fast i guess
[16:44] <evilbetty> the gameplay stays fluent i guess thats because tghat has priority over audio
[16:44] <datagutt> 5fps?
[16:44] <datagutt> :)
[16:44] <datagutt> snes is just an issue of tweaking i guess
[16:45] <datagutt> updating drivers and such
[16:45] <datagutt> not hardware fault
[16:45] <datagutt> will end up getting fixed in time
[16:45] <evilbetty> maybe
[16:45] <evilbetty> gets better when using 32000 sampling rate
[16:45] <evilbetty> but not completely solved
[16:46] <evilbetty> atari2600 works fine ;)
[16:46] <evilbetty> those 12 pixels dont slow down anything ;)
[16:46] <datagutt> well then it is the issue of actually building the machine
[16:47] <datagutt> maybe i will make an tabletop arcade machine

[17:07] * halfhalo (halfhalo@nasadmin/webteam/halfhalo) has joined #raspberrypi
[17:07] <ReggieUK> loads of people have used the pi for a media centre

[17:07] <evilbetty> may be interesting for h264
[17:07] <evilbetty> but besides that i doubt it
[17:07] <David7> oh. what do they use to accelerate the video?
[17:07] <evilbetty> i dont know like i said im not interested in using rpi for mediacenter
[17:07] <evilbetty> my tv also plays 1080p h264
[17:08] <ReggieUK> h264 hardware codec, mpg2 hardware codec, wvc1 hardware codec
[17:08] <David7> oh man, this is really awesome: https://www.adafruit.com/products/914
[17:09] <ReggieUK> it's not
[17:09] <evilbetty> yes but you gotta pay for those others right
[17:09] <ReggieUK> evilbetty, yes, just like you do on every other device that has hardware codecs onboard
[17:09] <evilbetty> at least its cheaper than that 130 dollar experiment kit that contained the same
[17:09] <ReggieUK> they decided not to include all of the codecs to keep the price down
[17:09] <evilbetty> ah well
[17:10] <evilbetty> not interested in those anyway ;)
[17:10] <ReggieUK> is ??3.60 too much?
[17:10] <evilbetty> i guess if u dont need it yes
[17:11] <evilbetty> i have my own challenge
[17:11] <ReggieUK> the h264 codec is included in the price of the pi btw.
[17:11] <ReggieUK> so if you only need that, then you've already got it
[17:11] <evilbetty> getting a tsop1838 to work :p
[17:11] <David7> i have to pay to use the codecs? is that what the licensing stuff on raspberrypi.org was about?
[17:12] <ReggieUK> no, you have to pay to use the EXTRA codecs that weren't included (mpg2, wvc1)

[17:34] <tripgod> You'd need to decode the DVD with libdvdcss2
[17:35] <tripgod> then you could mount the dvd iso
[17:35] <evilbetty> i have a tv card somewhere with mpeg2 encoders on it
[17:37] * BeholdMyGlory (~behold@unaffiliated/beholdmyglory) has joined #raspberrypi
[17:42] <David7> tripgod, but i would need the mpeg-2 codec to play it? i guess the mplayer folks haven't ported the codecs to arm?
[17:42] <David7> tripgod, or is the mpeg-2 codec a hardware codec?
[17:44] <tripgod> David7, ffmpeg has an mpeg2 codec
[17:45] <David7> tripgod, so i'm completely confused why i have to pay for a license for something freely available
[17:45] <tripgod> libdvdcss is not legal in every country
[17:49] <David7> tripgod, Got it. But the mpeg-2 license doesn't cover libdvdcss, right?

[17:52] <Peetz0r> My iptv streams are mpeg2
[17:53] <Peetz0r> so I can use my Pi as a replacement settopbox, and that uses mpeg2
[17:55] <midnightyell> there is no fee to use libdvdcss

[17:56] <Peetz0r> midnightyell: yeah, but that's only for reading the disc, not for decoding the mpeg2
[17:56] <Peetz0r> decoding mpeg2 can't be done in software (the cpu in the Pi won't be powerful enough), so we need to do that in hardware
[17:56] <Peetz0r> which is owned by Broadcom in this case

[17:57] <tripgod> in order to burn a dvd, you have to decode it
[17:57] <midnightyell> Right; if you want to play back the movie on the Pi, you'll need to license the codec for the GPU
[17:57] <Peetz0r> nope
[17:57] <Peetz0r> in order to burn a dvd (without playing it), ypu just need an mpeg2 source
[17:57] <evilbetty> meh
[17:57] <Peetz0r> which could be an encoder, but not a decoder
[17:57] <Peetz0r> ...if someone could implement mpeg2 in shaders (GLSL), would that mean that we can have hardware-accelerated mpeg2 without a license?
[18:00] <midnightyell> *shrug* Personally, while I think it's cool that the Pi can do video, I'm not sure it's the best choice for it
[18:00] <tripgod> but it's $35
[18:01] <tripgod> and small
[18:01] <Peetz0r> it's the best choice if you look at the price
[18:01] <Peetz0r> the settopbox which our ISP uses is like ???100, while the Pi is 1/3 of that
[18:03] <midnightyell> if someone were to productize it - hide all the detail from me, then maybe. But as far as playing video on a general-purpose computer goes, there's too many hoops to jump through

[19:20] <rymate1234> i.e. how to make a disk image of it
[19:20] <ReggieUK> once the rootfs is built with this type of thing, it's fairly inconsequential to it's usage isn't it?
[19:20] <midnightyell> cygwin has a copy of dd
[19:20] <ReggieUK> it's not like you have to recompile the whole rootfs again each time
[19:21] <midnightyell> ltib caches RPMs so that you don't need to rebuild everything every time; yes.

[19:23] <David7> rymate1234, So you can still connect it to your VM

[19:24] <rymate1234> do I just if=/dev/sdb
[19:24] <rymate1234> and of=myimg.img
[19:24] <David7> midnightyell, Even though a cross chroot is slower than a cross build it is usually better for building things that have a lot of library dependencies, which I'm guessing is true of mongodb
[19:25] <midnightyell> it is easier, yes
[19:25] <midnightyell> the emu build
[19:25] <midnightyell> though ltib has a large number of libs ready to build
[19:25] <David7> rymate1234, I recommend mounting the SD card and creating a tarball of the root file system. It's faster and saves a lot of space.
[19:26] <rymate1234> its only 4GB
[19:26] <Datalink> okay, I'm starting to feel like an idiot, I have a wifi module, and a wifi AP with a space in it, I have to configure my pi from serial to use this AP, so X11 is not an option

[19:30] <Datalink> David7, it doesn't seem to take
[19:30] <midnightyell> David7: cross-compiling with LTIB has a few advantages. I can easily try different build options or compilers. I end up with an RPM rather than a source dir full of binaries. I can generally get a cross-compiling .spec file working in less time than QEMU can build a largish package. *shrug*
[19:30] <David7> Datalink, You will probably have to kill wicd.

[19:48] <David7> Datalink, Can't you use a serial console with a scroll bar? Like gtkterm?
[19:49] <David7> Datalink, If you're using minicom, you can log the output to a file
[19:49] <Datalink> the text gets cut off, and takes up less than half the width of the putty window, this isn't a case of 'my serial client can't see it' it's a case of ps aux not sending it because the Pi thinks my console's 80 column

[20:20] <Datalink> I... so cheated...
[20:20] <Datalink> unplugged a monitor from the school systems, plugged my pi in, ran startx then wpa_gui
[20:20] <Datalink> I will have to make sure I don't need to go through this process in the future

[20:23] <plugwash> TomSlominski, it was kicked out of debian for being unmaintained
[20:23] <TomSlominski> plugwash, oh, thanks.
[20:23] <Datalink> dead projects happen, sadly
[20:23] <TomSlominski> plugwash, I guess I'll just invest in good ol' Apache. or maybe nginx
[20:24] <Datalink> I'm running apache on my pi... you can actually do a lot to tune apache and make it run alright
[20:24] <plugwash> apache probablly isn't the best of choices, IIRC it's one of the heavier web servers out there
[20:24] <plugwash> nginx is probablly a good choice
[20:24] <Datalink> true, apache's sorta... well... fat
[20:25] * simula agrees

[20:41] <David7> Here's what's funny: "is a high performance web server" used to be used with Apache when it came out
[20:42] <Matt> what happened to khttpd?
[20:43] <David7> I think it is more accurate to say that nginx uses less memory to serve each connection than Apache so it can handle more simultaneous connections
[20:43] <axion> http://www.wikivs.com/wiki/Lighttpd_vs_nginx
[20:43] <AC`97> indeed.
[20:43] <AC`97> nginx's output buffering can't be abused as much as Apache's though

[20:46] <axion> lighttpd increased in memory over time about a year ago when i tried.
[20:46] <AC`97> indeed
[20:46] <axion> actually, i use hunchentoot, for a high-performance server, but that's a whole different topic
[20:47] <David7> Looks like it's a toss up between nginx and lighttpd
[20:47] <AC`97> can lighttpd's output buffering be abused? :D
[20:47] <David7> I'm glad that people are at least developing alternatives to Apache. I think web server design stagnated for a long time because of Apache
[20:48] <David7> AC`97, I was speaking holistically

[20:57] <Tachyon`> it's just this one file and it plays on everything else

[23:16] <Tachyon`> a bit longer than I wanted but far shorter than these
[23:16] <Tachyon`> I may just have to shorten the existing cables, heh
[23:17] <midnightyell> sounds like someone could start a business selling short micro usb cables
[23:17] <Tachyon`> although I'm not sure you're supposed to do that with USB
[23:17] <Tachyon`> oh, there are micro ones, but I need mini and B? (the printer one) ends?
[23:17] <Tachyon`> although with the hub I suppose I could jsut solder the cable directly to it
[23:18] <Tachyon`> it's not going to be used on anything else
[23:18] <Tachyon`> the hard disk is too small and fiddly for that though...

[23:23] <rymate1234> any way to make fonts look better on a 22 inch hdtv?
[23:23] <midnightyell> install truetype fonts?
[23:23] <midnightyell> (or some other vector-based fonts)
[23:24] <rymate1234> i'm using vector fonts
[23:24] <rymate1234> i mean truetype
[23:24] <midnightyell> I dunno; I'd just be happy if I could get mesa/OpenGL to cross-compile properly
[23:25] <Tachyon`> if you're using the console you can configure it for larger fonts
[23:25] <Tachyon`> by editing console-setup, can have up to 32x16, Terminus looks quite nice
[23:25] <Tachyon`> gives you 120x33 console on an HD display

[23:30] <Tachyon`> sorry, that didn't send the first time due to the initial / and I didn't notice
[23:31] <Tachyon`> in the file you'll see two options together (and another font option elsewhere you should leave as is) - set the font to "Terminus" and size to "32x16" (or one of a number of sizes), those are case sensitive I think
[23:32] <rymate1234> crap
[23:32] <rymate1234> I set it to "terminus"
[23:32] <rymate1234> ohey it works
[23:32] <Tachyon`> I think you'll just get the default if it can't find it
[23:32] <Tachyon`> ahh
[23:33] <Tachyon`> but yeah, a lot more readable in HD I find, lol
