[0:01] <des2> yay for crappy cards.
[0:01] <des2> Are the class 10 cards fakes ?

[0:04] * kripton (kripton-fr@staff.kripserver.net) Quit (Ping timeout: 256 seconds)
[0:04] <TheSeven> class 10 cards are often more optimized for sequential access than for random access
[0:05] <TheSeven> which means that lower class cards (from brand manufacturers) often perform better for linux rootfs workloads than higher class cards (and are possibly also more reliable)
[0:06] <TheSeven> there are also huge differences between manufacturers, for instance sandisk cards are usually really good, and transcend cards (both are class 10) are much slower

[0:14] <eix> the shop assistant told me they are necessary to film with your most recent HD device (fast sequential write access)
[0:14] * Gallomimia (~Gallo@d50-98-209-153.bchsia.telus.net) Quit (Ping timeout: 276 seconds)
[0:15] * wiiguy (~fake@unaffiliated/wiiguy) Quit (Quit: I just broke my connection, but no worries, we can rebuild it. We have the technology.)
[0:18] <TheSeven> yes, that's why they're doing this
[0:19] <eix> I have a Kingston 16GB and it's working fine, I think it's also class 10
[0:20] * axion (~axion@cpe-67-242-88-224.nycap.res.rr.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:20] <eix> but when I was at the shop I was aware it would have been a blind shot..I just got lucky
[0:20] <TheSeven> kingston is a really odd company, basically reselling other company's cards/chips
[0:20] * CoffeeIV (rgr@rrcs-24-173-111-218.sw.biz.rr.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:20] <TheSeven> apparently you can get totally different cards when buying the same retail product
[0:20] <eix> TheSeven: they add only branding? or also do some refurbishing?
[0:20] * CaptainOblivious (~chatzilla@adsl-074-184-089-183.sip.asm.bellsouth.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:21] <TheSeven> apparently they are some kind of a demand buffer for flash chip manufacturers
[0:21] <eix> interesting
[0:22] <TheSeven> http://www.bunniestudios.com/blog/?p=918 is worth reading if you want to know the details
[0:22] <TheSeven> that post is dealing with completely fake cards as well
[0:23] * scummos (~sven@p57B192C1.dip.t-dialin.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:23] <s5fs> des2: i don't believe my cards are fakes, and one of them is listed as supported on the rasppi page so who knows

[0:24] <s5fs> i'm wiping yet another 8gig class 10 card in hopes of it maybe working. it's been formatted and is now being tested with h2testw
[0:24] * axion (~axion@cpe-67-242-88-224.nycap.res.rr.com) Quit (Client Quit)
[0:24] * Syliss (~Syliss@mobile-198-228-221-084.mycingular.net) Quit (Ping timeout: 256 seconds)
[0:24] <s5fs> TheSeven: interesting
[0:25] <eix> TheSeven: thanks, I am reading that
[0:25] <eix> s5fs: do you get a kernel panic or..?

[0:26] <CoffeeIV> I wish to use my raspberrypi with a USB webcam ( Logitech HD C910). I'm using the debian image now, which apparently doesn't have the right modules available to capture from a web cam. Which of the other raspberrypi distros would be good for this ?

[0:27] <caver> hi
[0:27] <s5fs> eix: no, it just starts barfing errors about mmcblk0, journal issues, etc.
[0:27] <s5fs> eix: if truly curious i can post some pics of the screen
[0:27] <eix> s5fs: are you sure it's not an overclocking issue?
[0:28] <s5fs> eix: stock board, fresh firmware, brand new card
[0:28] <eix> TheSeven: fully agree with that comment, it's normal to use multiple manufacturers to supply chips with the same function..but to have nothing specifically kingston inside (IC)..that's amazing
[0:28] <s5fs> eix: i tested with two 8gig class 10 cards and both exhibited the same behavior. tested again with a slower/older 4gig and it works fine.
[0:28] <eix> s5fs: ok. I wonder if *underclocking* would still throw those errors
[0:28] <eix> not that underclocking is what you want, anyway
[0:29] <s5fs> eix: true, underclocking would be interesting but not really what i'm seeking
[0:29] * qrwteyrutiyoup (~qrwteyrut@unaffiliated/qrwteyrutiyoup) Quit (Excess Flood)
[0:30] <eix> s5fs: or you might just try the initial_turbo=30 config parameter
[0:31] <s5fs> eix: okay, i'll give it a try when this card is done cooking. right now i'm running H2testw and it's showing consistent 9+mb/sec write performance.
[0:31] <eix> ahah, I like the description of "ghost shift" products. that guy is hardcore
[0:31] <s5fs> once the verify completes i'll burn the image and give it another go
[0:31] * Fleck (~fleck@unaffiliated/fleck) Quit (Read error: Operation timed out)

[0:33] * Frederick (~imanewbie@unaffiliated/frederick) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:33] <Frederick> folks im having problems with my pi I think it is broken I dont see to get a first boot no hdmi output nothing
[0:34] <TheSeven> Frederick: what do the LEDs do?
[0:34] <Frederick> TheSeven: red led is strong, green led is barelly visible
[0:34] <TheSeven> green never lit up properly after powering on?
[0:35] <Frederick> no
[0:35] <TheSeven> in that case the card probably isn't formatted right or some files are missing/bad
[0:35] <TheSeven> this means the cpu didn't find anything bootable
[0:35] <Frederick> cant I boot with no disk?
[0:35] <des2> no
[0:35] <TheSeven> well what would it boot from?
[0:35] <Hoerie> the sdcard slot?
[0:35] <des2> Pis have no bios like PCs.
[0:36] <Frederick> I think I might be using a borked sd card do you mind to take a look on it?
[0:36] <des2> I think he means the sd card as 'disk' Hoerie.
[0:37] <Hoerie> ah, I conflated some nicks
[0:37] <des2> I hate being conflated.
[0:37] <Hoerie> you weren't ;-)

[0:38] <TheSeven> well which files do you have on the boot partition of the sd card?
[0:38] * aaa801 (~aaa801@host-92-24-33-163.ppp.as43234.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:38] <aaa801> This
[0:38] <aaa801> i like this
[0:39] <aaa801> http://www.cooking-hacks.com/index.php/documentation/tutorials/raspberry-pi-to-arduino-shields-connection-bridge
[0:39] <des2> 40 euro!
[0:40] <Frederick> so folks what do you suggest me to do?
[0:40] <des2> you should scroll back and do all the things s5fs did when he had the similar problem.
[0:40] <des2> Do you have another SD card ?
[0:41] <Frederick> bo
[0:41] <Frederick> no
[0:41] <Hoerie> how are you powering the pi?
[0:41] <Frederick> with a motorola handy charger and usb pc port
[0:41] <Hoerie> usb pc port might not give the pi enough power
[0:42] <Hoerie> what's the rating for the charger?
[0:42] <eix> TheSeven: wait wait wait..there is an ARM chip in the SD controller?
[0:42] <Frederick> 5v
[0:43] <Hoerie> and amperage?
[0:43] <caver> how many A's
[0:43] <Frederick> 850mA
[0:43] * mush (~geordie@S01060026f395463f.vn.shawcable.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:43] <Hoerie> it could be that the charger drops it's voltage under load, causing erratic behaviour on the pi
[0:44] <Frederick> bad charger?
[0:44] <Hoerie> the pi is a bit picky where power is concerned
[0:44] <Frederick> cant I plug it on anopther power supply like my mobo?
[0:45] <Hoerie> pc usb ports are generally limited to 500mA
[0:45] <Frederick> too few?
[0:45] <Hoerie> some might pump out more, but that is beyond usb spec
[0:46] <Hoerie> I believe 750mA is the bare minimum, but 750mA chargers don't always output a high enough voltage at that load
[0:47] * qrwteyrutiyoup (~qrwteyrut@unaffiliated/qrwteyrutiyoup) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:47] <Frederick> what else can I try should I buy some other charger on the internet?
[0:48] * jodaro (~Adium@75-101-50-37.dsl.static.sonic.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:48] <Hoerie> well, it might not be the problem at all - I'd check if you don't have another charger lying around
[0:49] <Frederick> I dont
[0:49] <caver> can try powering it from your PC ... it might work
[0:49] <scummos> works for mine
[0:50] <caver> it does for me, especially if it's a USB3 slot
[0:50] <scummos> even with wlan stick + keyboard
[0:50] <Frederick> I tried it also
[0:50] <Frederick> I tried my py powered by my mobo nothign atrtached
[0:50] <Frederick> no luck
[0:50] <caver> right
[0:50] <caver> I'd try resetting the SD card
[0:51] * BigEndian (~esse@pool-74-111-220-240.lsanca.fios.verizon.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:52] <Frederick> tried twice
[0:53] * jodaro (~Adium@75-101-50-37.dsl.static.sonic.net) Quit (Ping timeout: 272 seconds)
[0:54] <caver> when you plug the SD card back into the computer, does it show up as a small FAT drive, with a file on it called config.txt
[0:54] <caver> if not, then it might be a corrupt image
[0:55] <TheSeven> eix: yes, in many SD controllers there's an ARM chip
[0:55] <Hoerie> are you creating the sd from windows or linux?
[0:55] * dcider (~dcider@d50-92-115-241.bchsia.telus.net) Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[0:55] <TheSeven> IIUC most SSDs are ARM-based as well
[0:56] <TheSeven> IIRC the samsung 830 ssd has a 3-core arm processor running some proprietary samsung controller software
[0:56] * m8 (~mor@unaffiliated/m8) Quit (Quit: Sto andando via)
[0:56] * mikey_w (~mike@c-71-63-115-202.hsd1.va.comcast.net) Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[0:57] * techsurvivor (~techsurvi@ Quit (Ping timeout: 260 seconds)
[0:59] <Frederick> caver: i think it is ext3
[0:59] <TheSeven> Frederick: there should be two partitions for most images, one fat partition and one ext4 partition
[1:00] <TheSeven> the cpu looks for something bootable inside the fat partition
[1:00] <s5fs> Frederick: i'm dealing with sdcard issues too. if you think the card is bad, it's probably worth taking a few minutes and confirming.
[1:00] <caver> yup ... the initial file that the GPU loads is on the FAT formatted one, which you ought to be able to open
[1:00] <eix> TheSeven: wow..these things are getting ubiquitous and miniaturized quite well these days
[1:00] <caver> it also contains some .txt files which tell it what kernel name to load etc
[1:01] <Frederick> file system seems screwwed
[1:01] * eix can't skip thinking of future ARM-based nanobots (http://xkcd.com/865/)
[1:01] <caver> aha
[1:01] <caver> well perhaps download a new image
[1:01] <caver> see if that works
[1:02] <caver> if not ... perhaps your SD card is bad
[1:02] <Frederick> how should I format it
[1:02] <Frederick> ?
[1:02] <des2> eix: http://ns.umich.edu/new/releases/7520
[1:02] <Hoerie> there's a step-by-step on the rapsberry pi site
[1:02] <Hoerie> *raspberry
[1:03] <eix> des2: cool
[1:03] <s5fs> Frederick: what os are you using?
[1:03] <Frederick> archlinuyx
[1:03] * datagutt (~datagutt@unaffiliated/datagutt) Quit (Quit: Computer has gone to sleep.)
[1:04] <caver> on your desktop machine?
[1:04] <caver> not the pi
[1:04] <s5fs> Frederick: on windows i'm reformatting cards using flashnul to reset the card
[1:04] <eix> TheSeven: conclusion is that Kingston might get A- products from the manuf. supply lines. not really nice..I will consider this in future
[1:04] <eix> I think A-DATA does the same
[1:05] <s5fs> Frederick: after flashnul i pop it out and then plug it back in, windows then asks if i want to format the card and I say yes. then, re-install the raspberry pi image
[1:05] <eix> actually I know other companies that do this, Iomega if I am not mistaken
[1:07] <Frederick> what should I use to format the cards on linux?
[1:07] <caver> start a terminal
[1:07] <caver> type "dmesg"
[1:07] <caver> then see what device it has connected as from the log file
[1:07] <caver> /dev/sdb say
[1:08] <caver> then cd to the dir with your disk image in it
[1:08] <eix> Frederick: gparted if you like GUIs, otherwise mkfs
[1:08] <s5fs> Frederick: gparted is what i use
[1:08] <caver> then dd if=<image file> of=/dev/sdb
[1:08] <Hoerie> http://elinux.org/RPi_Easy_SD_Card_Setup <-- this might help
[1:10] * ku (~any@polywiki/steward/kudu) Quit (Ping timeout: 276 seconds)
[1:10] <caver> then dd if=<image file> of=/dev/sdb bs=4M <-- oops ... it'll go a lot faster with this bit on the end
[1:11] <Frederick> eix: to which partition type? fat?
[1:11] <Frederick> Hoerie: im reading it
[1:11] <Frederick> already
[1:11] * ku (~any@polywiki/steward/kudu) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:11] <s5fs> Frederick: yeah, fat
[1:12] <Frederick> 32 or 16?
[1:12] <s5fs> fat32
[1:13] <eix> Frederick: depends from what you want to do
[1:13] <Frederick> brb
[1:15] <s5fs> well I think I've confirmed the issue is the sdcard. here's a post, I'm having the same exact issue: http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?t=17357&p=173458
[1:15] * dan408 (VICODAN@bitchx/fedora/vicodan) Quit ()
[1:15] <s5fs> I'm trying arch next, but I'm dubious it'll help.

[1:18] <eix> s5fs: did you try initial_turbo=30 ?
[1:19] <s5fs> eix: trying that now
[1:19] <eix> k
[1:20] <eix> is it possible to change the color palette shown at the very beginning of the boot sequence? I guess it's in the firmware?
[1:20] <eix> also: I never compiled the firmware part, will that output a start.elf file?

[1:26] * TheSeven loves his samsung ssd btw (completely off topic, i know)
[1:26] <s5fs> TheSeven: what size? that's my next upgrade before this laptop joins the choir invisible
[1:27] <TheSeven> 830 series 256gb
[1:27] <TheSeven> it makes a hell of a lot of a difference compared to the hdd I used to have
[1:27] * Frederick (~imanewbie@unaffiliated/frederick) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:27] <Frederick> back
[1:27] <TheSeven> and it seems to be one of the most reliable ssds available
[1:27] <eix> I have an Intel one
[1:28] <TheSeven> Frederick: if you dd an image to it you don't have to format it before that, that would get overwritten anyway
[1:28] <eix> 256G also, no failures yet (more than 1 year development usage so far)
[1:28] <s5fs> eix: initial_turbo=30 didn't seem to do the trick, same error on boot
[1:28] <s5fs> eix: you run VMs on it?
[1:28] <eix> s5fs: oh..that sucks
[1:28] <eix> s5fs: hardly
[1:29] <s5fs> eix: well, i have a working system thanks to the 4gig card, but now i'm just plain curious
[1:29] <eix> after some months I coupled it with a regular SATA hard disk and created symlinks to offload biggest writing operations there
[1:29] <s5fs> eix: i have to run windows vms for the occasional c# gig so that always eats up a ton of space
[1:30] <s5fs> current thinking is to move my 500gig sata drive into the optical bay and then get a smaller ssd for os
[1:30] <eix> s5fs: yeah, I have exactly that configuration now
[1:30] <s5fs> (laptop)
[1:30] * rikai_ is now known as rikai
[1:31] <eix> yep
[1:31] <s5fs> eix: yeah, guy at work did it with his mac, works great

[1:31] <TheSeven> wearout indicator indicates a design lifespan of 828TB of write traffic

[1:32] <eix> TheSeven: can you use SMART tools to show how much life left?
[1:32] <TheSeven> 4960TB written so far, merely 24 internal bad blocks
[1:32] <s5fs> ugh, smart tools never seem to work for me
[1:32] <s5fs> drives just die, no warning. thanks smart!
[1:32] <eix> TheSeven: wow, that's impressive
[1:33] <eix> s5fs: probably you have to check with smart tools from time to time
[1:33] <eix> TheSeven: what program do you use>?
[1:33] <TheSeven> not me, my personal one has merely 500GB written so far

[1:35] * mikey_w (~mike@c-71-63-115-202.hsd1.va.comcast.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:35] <TheSeven> even assuming a 100% efficient flash translation layer (which is impossible in practice) that SSD would be at like 20k write cycles now
[1:35] <TheSeven> and that's 25nm flash
[1:35] <TheSeven> specified for 3000
[1:35] <TheSeven> that forum thread also contains stress test results of lots of other ssds
[1:36] <TheSeven> but the samsung is really one of the best
[1:36] <japro> interesting playing sound via alsa libs directly has significantly less overhead than using openal
[1:36] <eix> TheSeven: what do you mean? I think 3 reallocations is expected after more than 1 year of usage..
[1:37] <TheSeven> eix: depends on whether it counts dead on arrival blocks
[1:37] <japro> openal + libvorbis used like 25%m libvorbis + alsa 11%
[1:37] <TheSeven> grown defects usually indicate that others are to follow soon

[1:37] * mgottschlag (~quassel@reactos/tester/phoenix64) Quit (Ping timeout: 260 seconds)
[1:38] <eix> TheSeven: so having some reallocations is indicator of upcoming failure, in your opinion? I thought that it would be normal on SSDs
[1:38] * mush (~geordie@S01060026f395463f.vn.shawcable.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:38] <TheSeven> if those have been there from the very beginning that might be fine
[1:38] <eix> due to their internal automatic reallocation logic, and the fact they can't be like regular hard disks
[1:38] <TheSeven> or let's say if they appeared during the first days of use
[1:38] <eix> I understand
[1:38] <eix> however I would be more worried if this was non-SSD
[1:39] <SpeedEvil> s are specified as their capacity after 10000 writes to each bloch
[1:39] <TheSeven> if blocks fail from time to time that's worrying for me... because I've rarely seen blocks fail before their design lifespan
[1:39] <SpeedEvil> raw flash is
[1:39] <eix> I consider my SSD a huge NAND, with slightly more complexity, circuitry and logic..so failure is expected
[1:39] <SpeedEvil> failures during use are routine and expected

[1:41] <TheSeven> when I worked with apple's (or rather whimory's) FTL (flash translation layer) on an ipod, it turned out that some chips ship with a few bad pages, but really few, and don't accumulate new ones over time (I never got a report of a block actually failing during use)
[1:41] <TheSeven> the ssd tests in that thread seem to also confirm this: no bad blocks until several thousand write cycles, and then they start trickling in at a sharply increasing speed
[1:42] <eix> TheSeven: interesting. I will monitor this counter closely

[3:33] <JamesHarrison> Quick question - I'm having issues with a mini wireless keyboard dongle and ethernet on two Pis. I'm using 5V/1A USB power on fairly short (1m) leads. The Pi loses power to the USB bus fairly regularly. What's the fix - get a USB PSU with more current capacity?
[3:33] <JamesHarrison> (revision 1 model B boards)
[3:35] <TheSeven> JamesHarrison: does ethernet fail as well or just the keyboard?
[3:36] <TheSeven> and how do you determine that it "loses power to the USB bus"?
[3:36] <JamesHarrison> TheSeven: Ethernet too. The ethernet LEDs go away, keyboard stops working. dmesg says so - will try and grab a dump now.
[3:37] <TheSeven> ok, in that case I think the polyfuses can be ruled out
[3:37] <JamesHarrison> Yeah, that was my first thought but the power draw is minimal
[3:37] <JamesHarrison> well below 140mA at any rate
[3:38] <TheSeven> the polyfuses can cause trouble below that - but they shouldn't affect ethernet at all
[3:38] <TheSeven> how often does this happen?
[3:38] <TheSeven> does it recover automatically or just die until a reboot or what?
[3:39] <TheSeven> dmesg output?
[3:39] <JamesHarrison> Recovers automatically, happens frequently. dmesg I'm working on - pain in the arse to retrieve!
[3:39] <JamesHarrison> (trivial if I had working ssh, but alas...)

[3:56] <JamesHarrison> I need a nice sensitive ammeter about now... bah
[3:58] <TheSeven> the 3.3V LDO has a rather high dropout though and can't quite hold its design voltage
[3:58] <TheSeven> ethernet is running fine at 2.8V on the 3.3V bus though
[3:58] <TheSeven> so this doesn't looks very sensitive to undervoltage... possibly to glitches though
[4:00] <JamesHarrison> I'm thinking about just giving this a really nice low-ripple/noise supply and seeing how it goes
[4:00] <JamesHarrison> but I'm wondering if this might just be software

[5:29] * des2 (~nobody@pool-96-232-65-99.nycmny.east.verizon.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[5:29] <odin_> how do I turn of apache2 and git-daemon from starting up on reboot ? in the debian way
[5:30] <odin_> git-daemon seems to run from runsvdir/runsv (not xinetd/inetd)
[5:32] * jodaro (~Adium@75-101-50-37.dsl.static.sonic.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[5:32] <odin_> also I edited /etc/network/interfaces adding: iface lo inet6 loopback (for IPv6 support by default)
[5:32] <odin_> also /etc/modprobe.d/ipv6.conf => 'alias net-pf-10 on' and 'alias ipv6 on' maybe I remove 'on' word ?
[5:33] <s5fs> Frederick: the green light, does it flash erratically or like "flash flash flash" then pause?
[5:35] <Frederick> oki so I plugged it on my tv ans now it works
[5:35] <Frederick> strange
[5:35] <des2> do you want to remove apache completely ?
[5:35] <Frederick> im using it on a usb hub witth proper poweer supply
[5:36] <s5fs> Frederick: i'm using a wall plug to get my power, not through a hub. glad it's working for you though!
[5:42] <odin_> hmm should /etc/rc2.d/S02apache2 exist ? runlevel 2 is 'no networking' on most Linux distos
[5:43] <s5fs> odin_: rename it K02apache2 and see if it still starts up
[5:43] * DMackey (~DMackey@cpe-74-71-43-184.twcny.res.rr.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[5:43] <odin_> isn't there a system tool for that kind of editing ?
[5:43] <odin_> I found 'sv stop git-daemon' but it keeps restarting it
[5:44] <s5fs> odin_: i don't know sv, i just bork things by hand
[5:44] <odin_> also 'mount' keeps adding 'noexec' option to my NFS options even though /etc/fstab has 'exec' in it
[5:44] <s5fs> odin_: you could look into rcconf i guess
[5:48] <des2> sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 stop
[5:49] <Frederick> oki im on
[5:49] <Frederick> I need basic help to get wireless woreking
[5:49] <s5fs> des2: any recommendations for a usb wifi dongle? i'm in the market for one
[5:50] <des2> Yeah get one with a chip on the working list.
[5:51] <des2> They are pretty generic but with different chips.
[5:51] <des2> Also if it's further than in the same room get one with an attached antennal.
[5:52] <des2> Dongles for wifi can use 500mA
[5:52] <des2> So you'll need a good power supply or an external powered hub
[5:53] <s5fs> des2: i was going to stick with the wall wart for power
[5:53] <des2> http://elinux.org/RPi_VerifiedPeripherals#USB_WiFi_Adapters
[5:53] <des2> Plugging the WiFi dongle direct into the PI's usb port ?

[5:54] * cpg is now known as cpg|away
[5:56] <s5fs> des2: yeah, power the pi from a wall plug and attach the dongle to the onboard usb. if that's not feasable i guess i can just include a powered hub
[5:56] <des2> http://www.ebay.com/itm/270849834225?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649
[5:56] <des2> Cheap dongle based on Ralink 5370
[5:57] <s5fs> $0.65 shipping, haha!
[5:57] <des2> The problem is the Pi has a Polyfuse on the input limiting current.
[5:58] <des2> It's designed for 700mA normal operation but kicks in fully at 1.1-1.2Amps.
[5:58] <s5fs> weren't those replaced with 0 ohm resistors though, or am i thinking of something else?
[5:58] <s5fs> sounds like powered hub is the way to go. just complicates making a case i guess.
[5:58] <s5fs> man, i need a 3d printer ;-)
[6:00] <des2> How old is your Pi. is the revision 2 or revision 1. And is it revision 1 with polyfuses replaces by 0 ohm resistors ?
[6:00] <midnightyell> Easy Id tip: Rev 2 Pis have mounting holes
[6:00] <des2> Even the 2 apparently has the 1.1A polyfuse onthe input.
[6:02] <s5fs> i don't see mounting holes, but i see two resistors that say 0000 on 'em
[6:02] <s5fs> i can take a pic if anyone cares, haha
[6:02] <s5fs> F1 and F2 have 0000 on them
[6:02] <des2> yeah they replaced the 2 USB polyfuse with 0 ohm resistors.
[6:03] <des2> The problem is the input still has a 1.1A polyfuse.

[6:03] <s5fs> day 1 with the pi, i don't know much yet
[6:04] <midnightyell> well, welcome to the club
[6:04] <midnightyell> :)
[6:04] <s5fs> thanks!
[6:04] <des2> http://hackaday.com/2012/09/04/problems-powering-raspberry-pi-from-gpio-header/
[6:04] <s5fs> i'm a software guy, landed my first embedded gig recently using beagleboards. fun when work and personal interests align.
[6:05] * ragedragon (~ragedrago@ has joined #raspberrypi
[6:05] <s5fs> the pi is my home dorkaround project, i'm a-gunna make it control a lamp!
[6:05] <midnightyell> I got an embedded job years ago, except the platform was an x86 with 4G of RAM
[6:05] <des2> heh.
[6:05] <des2> Project overkill.
[6:05] <s5fs> des2: exactly right
[6:06] <des2> https://estore.ti.com/Stellaris-LaunchPad.aspx
[6:06] <des2> Buy one of those too for $5 s5fs.
[6:06] <midnightyell> is anyone here a distcc guru? the man pages don't match my software ;|
[6:07] <midnightyell> 2 for $10 :)
[6:07] * asd (~asd@p54BA33E1.dip.t-dialin.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[6:07] <s5fs> des2: i was looking at that, as well as the msp430
[6:07] <midnightyell> my stellaris' are scheduled to ship for another month :(
[6:07] <midnightyell> aren't scheduled...
[6:07] <s5fs> midnightyell: yeah, i think i saw them on hackaday for preorder about a month or so ago, didn't jump then. thought i'd wait.
[6:08] <des2> yeah it's gonna take a while.
[6:08] <s5fs> my work sprints are eating up my free time and with the holidays coming i doubt i'll even be able to finish my stupid lamp project, and most of that code is done.
[6:08] <midnightyell> I have a friend at TI and he won't give me his, even though he doesn't have time ti play with them
[6:09] <des2> heh
[6:09] <midnightyell> Hmm. using distcc to cross compile on my desktop mame took about 14 minutes
[6:09] * BigEndian (~esse@pool-74-111-220-240.lsanca.fios.verizon.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[6:09] <midnightyell> time to tune distcc
[6:09] <des2> your desktop will be maybe 50x faster than compiling on Pi.
[6:10] <midnightyell> yep; thereabouts
[6:11] <midnightyell> this has the pi preprocessing and sending the file over to the Huge Damn Linux box, who compiles it and sends back the object file
[6:11] <s5fs> midnightyell: okay, what?
[6:12] <s5fs> i don't know distcc but it sounds slick man
[6:12] <midnightyell> the advantage being that I don't have to futz around trying to get the package to cross compile cleanly; as far as the build system thinks, it's a native build
[6:12] <midnightyell> yeah, this isn't bad
[6:12] <s5fs> that's wicked funky
[6:12] <midnightyell> I'll write up a howto
[6:12] <s5fs> i'd love to read it

[6:13] <s5fs> for this current gig we've got a couple of small c++ apps to compile and i was looking at just cross-compiling and distributing via debian packages
[6:13] <midnightyell> well, doing 1 project in a non-production environment is one thing; mantaining it for a real software shop is another :)
[6:14] <s5fs> midnightyell: understood
[6:14] <midnightyell> it's easy enough these days to set up a cross-toolchain with crosstool-ng
[6:14] <s5fs> i hope so, that's my tomm project
[6:14] <midnightyell> the Pi foundation already has cross toolchains
[6:15] <midnightyell> just download & go
[6:15] <s5fs> i want to understand the process so i can replicate for the beagleboard
[6:15] <midnightyell> heh
[6:15] <s5fs> hey, i can't have the grey beard run the show forever!
[6:15] <midnightyell> well, they also have their conf files for crosstool-ng, if you want to see what they did
[6:16] <midnightyell> https://github.com/raspberrypi/tools
[6:16] <s5fs> prob best to start simple and build out
[6:16] <midnightyell> and hey, my beard's starting to go grey...
[6:17] <s5fs> i'm balding but my beard is holding strong
[6:17] <s5fs> at what point does "balding" become "balded"? haha
[6:17] <des2> heh
[6:17] <midnightyell> "shaved" should probably enter in there before you get to that
[6:18] <s5fs> full montel?
[6:18] <des2> As long as you have one hair left...
[6:18] <s5fs> des2: i like your style
[6:18] <Xark> s5fs: It depends on the reflectivity coefficient, I believe. :)
[6:18] <midnightyell> heh

[6:18] <Xark> midnightyell: LOL
[6:18] <s5fs> jean-luc picard. 'nuff said.

[10:22] <shiftplusone> eix, I would imagine so, it's best to just ask the question.
[10:23] <eix> shiftplusone: thanks
[10:24] <eix> I have compiled 3.2.27 with no success so far. I have a slightly modified kernel .config and I always get a complete hangup after a few seconds on boot. I get a stacktrace and then it hangs up
[10:24] <eix> initially I had disabled autogroup scheduler feature, but it crashes anyway on some random CPU-intensive task happening at boot time..any ideas how to troubleshoot?
[10:24] <shiftplusone> do you have a working serial connection?
[10:25] <eix> shiftplusone: nope
[10:25] <eix> I can see the stacktrace on RGB output
[10:26] <shiftplusone> kind of hard without seeing the whole boot proccess. Have you used qemu?

[10:27] * halfhalo (halfhalo@nasadmin/webteam/halfhalo) has joined #raspberrypi
[10:27] <shiftplusone> if you can replicate the same result in qemu and post the output, it might help
[10:28] <eix> you're right, will give it a try
[10:29] <shiftplusone> Some other info which might help is what steps you're taking to compile the kernel and modules, including what toolchain you're using if you're cross-compiling, where you got the .config from and what changes you made and so on.
[10:29] <eix> shiftplusone: I am compiling it on the raspberry pi, natively
[10:30] <eix> I am using a modified version of the current's kernel /proc/config.gz
[10:30] <shiftplusone> sounds good, very little room for error there.
[10:30] <shiftplusone> have you tried to compile the kernel without any modifications?
[10:31] <eix> shiftplusone: I think I didn't
[10:31] <shiftplusone> might be worth a shot, just to rule out the possibility that something is wrong there.
[10:31] <eix> yep
[10:32] <eix> weird..this morning a new issue, it "gracefully" hangs up (I have working keyboard compared to the custom kernel's hangup) during the systemctl start
[10:32] <eix> will give it a try with the vanilla .config
[10:33] <OpenSys> to change the linux kernel, you must know what you are doing
[10:33] <OpenSys> 1? you must get the oldconfig
[10:33] <shiftplusone> OpenSys, that's how you get to know what you're doing.
[10:33] <eix> OpenSys: I have configured & compiled a few in the past, however I learn by trying
[10:34] <OpenSys> i just saying
[10:34] <shiftplusone> If you're going to be messing around with the kernel much, you should get the serial working, it really makes things a lot easier.
[10:34] <OpenSys> shiftplusone, noooo
[10:34] <OpenSys> relax
[10:34] <shiftplusone> ?
[10:35] * eix is checking how to wire serial
[10:35] <shiftplusone> eix, did you also re-compile and install the modules?
[10:36] <shiftplusone> eix, for the serial, do you have a usb->uart cable?
[10:36] <eix> shiftplusone: yes
[10:36] <eix> shiftplusone: usb->uart, no
[10:37] <eix> where is the second UART?
[10:37] <eix> the non-GPIO one
[10:37] <shiftplusone> well, this goes without saying, but just in case, don't try to hook up the rs232 straight to uart.
[10:37] <eix> shiftplusone: because it's unbuffered or..?
[10:38] <shiftplusone> also, don't use 5v uart, it's 3.3v
[10:38] * Guest46039 is now known as cccyRegeaneAway
[10:39] <shiftplusone> Yeah, because rs232 is something like 25v I think.

[10:41] <eix> shiftplusone: did you mean this? http://www.adafruit.com/products/954
[10:41] <shiftplusone> same thing, but yeah that one is better since you can hook it straight up to gpio

[10:50] <Datalink> any 3.3v ttl cable will do so long as you have a way to work with the Pi's pinout, I use my Arduino in tristate (reset shorted) mode
[10:50] <shiftplusone> yup
[10:50] <Datalink> my Arduino's the Seeeduino, a clone with a voltage switch to make the AVR and FTDI run on the 3v3 or 5v regulator
[10:51] <Datalink> you do have to be mindful of the voltage, 3.3 Volts is required, 5 volts will damage the Pi
[10:51] <Tachyon`> hrm, tha tlooks lik ea ttl serieal to usb adapter
[10:51] <Datalink> it is
[10:52] <Datalink> if you have a actual RS232 connector (DSub -12/+12) you will have to use a MAX232 level shifter configured for 3.3v
[10:53] <Tachyon`> do you happen to know what voltage the serial pins for the consoel on the GPIO header are?
[10:53] <dreamon_> every time I reboot, I have to make /etc/init.d/networking start to get connection to wlan. what do I have to do, so it will start at reboot?
[10:53] * Xark notes both the FTDI cables and the FTDI friend above are all 3.3v signal level but 5v tolerant (by default).
[10:53] <Tachyon`> yeah, the adapter will tolerate 5v, the pi wll not

[10:54] <Datalink> 3v3 FTDIs are thus usable on other devices like microcontrollers so long as the micros can understand 3v3 (AVR can, and it's a popular one)
[10:54] <Datalink> morning gordonDrogon
[10:54] <Tachyon`> datalink, the console serial on the GPIO? 3.3 or 1.8?
[10:54] <tero> speaking about ttl converters. I have three of these. http://www.poscope.com/pousb12
[10:54] <tero> and it works fine
[10:54] <tero> with rpi
[10:54] <Datalink> 3.3
[10:54] <Tachyon`> ah, thanks
[10:55] <Tachyon`> I hadn't dared connect anything to it as yet in case it was 1.8, saw both regulators
[10:55] <Datalink> everything on the Pi's GPIO is 3v3 except the 5V pins P1-2 P1-4
[10:55] <Tachyon`> I do have a max233 about though so 3.3 should be easily dealt with
[10:55] <Tachyon`> ahh
[10:55] <Datalink> 1.8 is only used in core
[10:55] <Tachyon`> ah right, that makes thigns a little less worrying, lol
[10:55] <Datalink> look up max232 calculator and set it to give you 3.3, there's about a thousand out there
[10:56] <Tachyon`> oh, I already have a max233 setup for 3.3 that I made for unrelated purpsoes so I can just use that
[10:56] <Tachyon`> now I know it won't kill it
[10:56] <Tachyon`> lol
[10:56] <Datalink> I consider P1-2 and P1-4 as DNCs unless I'm using it to power other 5V inputs (I have an FPGA I do this with)
[10:56] <gordonDrogon> Datalink, is your seeeduino ok at 16MHz at 3.3v ? (it's outside the spec, but I know others have been running ATmegas at 16MHz at 3.3v)
[10:56] <Datalink> ah recycling is one of the great things about hobby electronics
[10:57] <Datalink> gordonDrogon, I'm running at the stock 12, I don't OC my stuff
[10:57] <Datalink> I could... theoretically run it at 16MHz but it'd take replacing the crystal
[10:57] <Datalink> I don't know how they attached it to my board, I think it's wave soldered
[10:57] <Datalink> but no signs of how
[10:58] <Tachyon`> I'd think 12 would be better if you're doing anything USB related with it
[10:58] <gordonDrogon> Datalink, 12MHz? that's not typical for an arduino - they're 8 or 16 usually...
[10:58] <Datalink> ....
[10:58] <Datalink> I just looked, it is 16
[10:58] <Tachyon`> lol
[10:58] <Datalink> wtf was the 12... my FPGA?
[10:58] <Datalink> oh yeah, that's it, the FPGA's 12 with a multiplier
[10:58] <Tachyon`> I dunno, I typically run pics at 12
[10:59] <Datalink> lemme see what crystal's in my PIC board
[10:59] <gordonDrogon> anything other than 16MHz needs a different bootoader for serial programming as the baud rate calcs. are wrong.
[10:59] <Datalink> 11.05
[10:59] <Datalink> my seeeduino's also got an auto/manual reboot switch, I love the thing
[10:59] <Datalink> only thing I have to use one of the reset pin hacks for is the tristate
[11:00] <Tachyon`> well, if it were 8 you could just set half the bad rate
[11:00] <Tachyon`> which is usually a valid speed (if often a little used one, IE: 600)
[11:00] <Datalink> but yeah, 3.3v or 5v only problem I ever have is if I switch without powering it down
[11:00] <gordonDrogon> I'm running an ATmega at 8 right now, but I'm using the ICSP programmer on it
[11:00] <Datalink> that's cause I'm an idiot
[11:00] * pepijn_away is now known as pepijndevos
[11:00] <Tachyon`> yes, 've only ever killed 1 3.3 device with 5v
[11:00] <Tachyon`> you kinda do that once then get more careful, lol
[11:00] <Datalink> should be okay at 16, just set the ISP up for it

[11:01] <Datalink> I got so lucky... had the sides flipped on my breadboard one time...
[11:01] <gordonDrogon> using the internal RC oscillator rather than an external xtal - gain 2 IO ports that way :)
[11:01] <Datalink> the pins that touched 5 volt have responded normally after I fixed it
[11:01] <eix> ok, now I am starting from scratch. I should compile rpi-3.2.27, right?
[11:01] <Datalink> I don't recall the last time I used over a bus on my Arduino
[11:01] <gordonDrogon> I've accidentally 5v'd a Pi's GPIO pin before - seem to have gotten away with it...
[11:01] <eix> I saw rpi-3.6 and looks attractive, but it might not be better than what I have now..
[11:02] <Tachyon`> Never used the AVR stuff, only PICs, what advantages do AVRs offer? or have they just become more popular due to the arduino?
[11:02] <Datalink> eix, do you have a need to build from scratch, I can't think of anything outside of very scarce edge cases where you'd need to recompile the RPi kernel
[11:03] <eix> Datalink: I need the xpad module
[11:03] <Datalink> Tachyon`, mostly popularity, there's some low level differences, fuses and registers are different of course
[11:03] <Tachyon`> the parallax propeller looks like a very interesting chip
[11:03] <Tachyon`> although not as cheap as a PIC
[11:03] <Datalink> eix, ah, elinux has a good page on compiling the kernel, it's pretty easy with menuconfig but takes... 3-8 hours depending on what you add on the Pi
[11:03] <Tachyon`> my replica Altair uses one to generate the terminal
[11:03] <eix> Datalink: and the possibility of customizing the kernel is also interesting (I would disable some options)
[11:03] <eix> Datalink: yeah..I checked that out
[11:03] * TiredOf (~user@cpc2-live20-2-0-cust992.know.cable.virginmedia.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[11:03] <Datalink> then 'make menuconfig' will be as much your friend as it was mine
[11:04] <eix> I was wondering if anybody tried 3.6 already
[11:04] <Datalink> sec
[11:04] <Datalink> nope, I'm on 3.2
[11:04] <Datalink> I tend to err on the side of LTS though
[11:04] <Tachyon`> I think the last kernel I built by hand was a 2.2 kernel -.o it all got so much easier when initrd appeared
[11:05] <eix> I think I will do as shiftplusone said, trying the vanilla kernel config and then mine
[11:05] <eix> I have also disabled the moderate overclocking..might be related to these crashes
[11:05] <gordonDrogon> Tachyon`, they are popular due to arduino, but IMO they're much easier to program and possibly a shade faster, although there's not much in it - much easier to target for higher level languages due to a non-segmented type architechure for RAM (but I understand later PICs sorted that, somewhat)
[11:05] <eix> will turn it on later

[11:06] <Tachyon`> do we not? how would I know, there's no display in the initial boot
[11:06] <eix> Datalink: yes, already doing that, thanks
[11:06] <Tachyon`> but okay, lol
[11:06] <gordonDrogon> Tachyon`, some say it got harder when initrd appeared ;-) I've never built a kernel that needed initrd.
[11:06] <Datalink> gordonDrogon, you know more than I, I failed microcontrollers because I could never get a PIC to run my code
[11:06] <Tachyon`> well, it got easier in that you didn't have to recompile every time you changed hardware like you did pre initrd
[11:06] * Datalink hugs on modules.
[11:07] <gordonDrogon> Datalink, :-) To be fair, I've only ever done one big project on a PIC - didn't like it!
[11:07] <Tachyon`> oh yes, well, not so much with modules
[11:07] <Tachyon`> when I started with linux it had no modules
[11:07] <crenn> Datalink: I got a PIC to run code once, good thing I didn't have to write said code :D

[11:20] <Datalink> no, cause I don't have those, I've had broadband since I was 17... I don't download media that often... usually easier to find it again
[11:20] <Datalink> I'm 31... long time to be in that particular habbit... heh

[11:23] <Datalink> I think I may have been using Linux console too long
[11:23] <Datalink> I reolized I did all that after the stream stopped... heh
[11:24] <eix> by the way, did anybody get subtitles with omxplayer?>
[11:24] <Datalink> my answer to that one is already known
[11:24] <Datalink> I'm sure folks are tired of me saying that
[11:25] <eix> I know OpenVG was attempted to merge
[11:25] <eix> but don't know if there were recent developments
[11:25] <eix> also I saw OpenVG merge tracks on git, so I was confused
[11:25] * mgottschlag (~quassel@reactos/tester/phoenix64) has joined #raspberrypi
[11:25] <Tachyon`> omxplayer does support subs
[11:25] <Tachyon`> I'll feed it an anime

[11:27] <Tachyon`> argh, a dub
[11:27] <Tachyon`> oh right
[11:27] <Tachyon`> it defaulted to english audio and no subs, lol
[11:27] <eix> I think it's still unsupported, and I saw there was a ticket to remove the subtitles option that's confusing
[11:28] <MashedUpCow> has anyone used DD to take an image from an SD card and create a .img file? I'm trying to do this now with a 32gb card which only has a 2gb partition on it, but it takes so long I think its extracting the full 32gb. I really only want/need the 2gb partition. Looked over Google, can't find anything useful
[11:28] <eix> MashedUpCow: easy. dump the first 2 GB
[11:28] <eix> (+ some padding)
[11:28] <MashedUpCow> easy: how? :)
[11:29] <eix> MashedUpCow: check 'man dd', and pay attention to blocksize and number of blocks
[11:29] <eix> then it's simple maths :)
[11:29] <eix> I suggest using a big block size like 4M
[11:29] <MashedUpCow> mmm, can't DD just work on a partition, not a deviec?
[11:29] <eix> MashedUpCow: yes, but it's not what you want
[11:30] <eix> MashedUpCow: wait..are you going to mount the partition as loopback?
[11:30] <eix> MashedUpCow: in that case dumping the partition would be ok
[11:30] <MashedUpCow> I want to distribute an image, but I doubt many people would have 32gb cards most will have less. if I take the full 32gb they'll not be able to return it to a smaller card
[11:30] <Tachyon`> hrm, subs don't seem to work within the MKV either
[11:30] <eix> MashedUpCow: in that case you need the partition descriptor as well, so dumping the partition only is not an option
[11:31] <eix> Tachyon`: yep, I had the same feeling
[11:31] <eix> Tachyon`: and you cannot choose language track
[11:31] <Tachyon`> you can
[11:31] <Tachyon`> I just did
[11:31] <eix> Tachyon`: :o

[11:31] <Tachyon`> you have to give it a number of the audio track
[11:32] <eix> Tachyon`: that's what I tried!! damn help :(
[11:32] <Tachyon`> lol
[11:32] <Tachyon`> the long form options don't work either
[11:32] <Datalink> MashedUpCow, you should be able to resize the partition image, it would require the partition, not disk image though, so if you're using a 2 partition image like the Pi's it would take a lot more work
[11:32] <Tachyon`> IE: -n 2 rather than --aidx 2
[11:32] <eix> Tachyon`: sorry to be so harsh, but I think nothing justifies a command line help that does not match the features. it's laziness..

[11:33] <Tachyon`> lol
[11:33] <eix> I am eventually going to put my hands on omxplayer sources also, if I master kernel compilation on raspberry pi..
[11:33] <Datalink> MashedUpCow, one option is to resize the partition on the SD card before copying it off
[11:33] <Tachyon`> wonder if subs work in Raspbmc, that keeps breaking my TV
[11:33] <Tachyon`> IE: locks up and won't accept remote input until I power cycle it
[11:33] <eix> Datalink: that will not help
[11:33] <Datalink> eix, kernel compile's easy, 'make menuconfig'
[11:34] <eix> Datalink: it's not, my compiled kernel hangs up
[11:34] <Datalink> eix, yeah, true, he'd have to copy them off and onto a target sized device

[11:35] <Tachyon`> try the standard 700
[11:35] <Datalink> first rule of Overclocking a pi, if it crashes, dial back
[11:35] <Tachyon`> yup, lol
[11:35] <Datalink> if it crashes again, it's not the overclock

[11:35] <Datalink> what'd you set for debugging?
[11:36] <eix> nothing, basically
[11:36] <eix> I use RGB out
[11:36] * dangerousdave (~dangerous@ has joined #raspberrypi
[11:37] <Tachyon`> RGB out? what RGB out?
[11:37] <Tachyon`> are you using a USB to VGA adapter?
[11:38] <eix> Tachyon`: the yellow RCA
[11:38] <eix> isn't that called also RGB?
[11:38] <Tachyon`> ah, that's composite
[11:38] <eix> yes, composite
[11:38] <Tachyon`> it's not RGB, just one signal combining chroma, luma, sync
[11:39] <Tachyon`> I'd like to use an RGB display but there's no particularly easy way as yet it seems
[11:39] <eix> Tachyon`: nowadays HDMI is the standard
[11:39] <Tachyon`> there are HDMI to VGA converters but they're ropey as hell and you either get a blurry screen or the 1995 laptop effect
[11:39] <Datalink> that connector's RCA, eix, or composit
[11:40] <Datalink> Tachyon`, he means the RCA connector, the composite, not VGA
[11:40] <Tachyon`> the connector is RCA, the signal is composite
[11:40] <Tachyon`> yeah, I realise that now, lol
[11:40] <Tachyon`> I tried the pi on my old 1084 but it's too wide for the display
[11:40] <eix> yeah, I once modified a composite to SCART cable myself
[11:40] <eix> adding a condenser inside
[11:40] <Tachyon`> I had fun doing that for the amiga
[11:40] <Tachyon`> had to find a 12v source from somewhere
[11:41] <Tachyon`> to switch it to RGB mode
[11:41] <Tachyon`> (as the cable I had didn't have one)
[11:41] <Datalink> Tachyon`, you know what I mean... that's the important part
[11:41] <Tachyon`> ended up nicking it from the floppy connector
[11:41] <eix> eheh
[11:41] <Datalink> ugh, SCART had to be a pain for import kit
[11:41] <Datalink> I've read up on it, glad the industry's switching to HDMI across the board... ugly fees but simpler solution
[11:41] <Tachyon`> HDMI is harder to drive from your own stuff though
[11:41] <Tachyon`> I'm not fond of it
[11:41] <Tachyon`> also, HDCP, heh
[11:42] <eix> Tachyon`: why harder?
[11:42] <Datalink> Tachyon`, this is painfully true... I still need to make a DVI for my FPGA
[11:42] <Datalink> HDCP is optional in the spec
[11:42] <Tachyon`> doesn't the target display only work at a quarter resolution if it's not there though?
[11:42] <Tachyon`> or am I misunderstanding
[11:42] <Datalink> no, HDCP devices downgrade, recievers ignore
[11:43] <Datalink> reciever doesn't care if it's not copy protected, the BluRay does
[11:43] <Tachyon`> oh right, it's downgraded at source if it doesn't detect support in the display?
[11:43] <Datalink> right
[11:43] <Tachyon`> ahh
[11:43] <Datalink> that said, there are ways to do man-in-the-middle on it
[11:43] <Tachyon`> well, I assumed there would be
[11:43] <Tachyon`> these standards never protect for long
[11:44] <Tachyon`> I suspect they cost more in R&D than they save via piracy

[11:50] <Datalink> the XuLA 2 adds microSD, I'm eyeing it but have to wait until next semester

[11:54] <Datalink> Tachyon`, both the Xilinx and Altera IDEs are 5+ gigs though, you've been warned...
[11:54] <shiftplusone> I'd like to do the nand2tetris thing on an FPGA, but don't have the time right now.
[11:54] <eix> Tachyon`: some years ago I was in a project which involved JTAG, reverse engineering and embedded devices programming..it was all before the Arduino age :)
[11:54] <shiftplusone> Project for later I suppose
[11:55] <Tachyon`> I've used JTAG before although not too much
[11:55] <Datalink> shiftplusone, the logic's simple enough so that's doable
[11:55] <Tachyon`> that was how I once killed a 3.3v device with 5v actually

[11:55] <eix> it's very nice to see how big has become the custom embeded devices landscape
[11:56] <Datalink> Tachyon`, the XuLA is also nice because it has the flash ROM and USB, I have mine with the header kit (yes it's seperate but some folks have their own headers) machine pins and a jumper for 5V
[11:56] <eix> Tachyon`: now imagine to reverse engineer a JTAG protocol.. ;)
[11:56] <Datalink> means I can power the board off the Pi
[11:56] <Datalink> eix, JTAG is really just SPI
[11:56] <Tachyon`> reverse engineering it, ouch
[11:57] <Datalink> some systems use different JTAGs though... it's kind of 'ehe' generic... it's usually just some form of clocking serial
[11:57] <eix> Datalink: some vendors have their own sequences to put the internal IC in listening mode, debug mode etc
[11:57] <Datalink> eix, yeah, those suck
[11:57] <eix> Datalink: although most JTAGs are just copied, and the puzzle becomes "where did they copy it from?"
[11:58] <eix> yeah..and for that kind of puzzles you really need an old guy which saw all of them. it's hard (and time-expensive) to gather the know-how otherwise
[11:59] <Datalink> http://learn.adafruit.com/096-mini-color-oled/downloads I still have to engineer a controller for this, not sure if I can get away with just SPI or if I need to also add some control pins for the #reset

[12:37] <eix> Datalink: and that would be a job for GPU
[12:37] <Datalink> true
[12:38] <Datalink> hm, I may keep this split, the video actually looks good like this...
[12:38] <japro> the gpu renders this in 1080p with 4x msaa without even triggering the scaling... but playing and mixing a vorbis audio file already eats up 25% cpu
[12:38] <japro> hrm... :D
[12:38] <Datalink> now if only vlc would fork omxplayer into the pi port
[12:38] <japro> we need GLES3 or OpenCL so we can abuse the crap out of the gpu
[12:39] <Datalink> well, for that we'd need Broadcom to get their heads out of their asses
[12:39] <japro> renders this: https://twitter.com/i/#!/JakobProgsch/media/slideshow?url=pic.twitter.com%2FdvhCBKIR is what i mean
[12:39] <japro> sadly GLES2 doesn't allow for float render targets
[12:39] <japro> with that alone you could do a lot
[12:40] <eix> japro: don't wait for somebody else to do it, join the people that need that as well and are already trying! ;)

[12:40] <Datalink> datalink@raspberrypi ~ $ sudo apt-get install minecraft
[12:41] <eix> honestly I am a bit frustrated by the specs of raspberry pi. I think I'd need 2x CPU and RAM to keep up with my desires of responsiveness
[12:41] <eix> but on the other hand, it makes me do things slower..so think more ;)
[12:41] <japro> eix, well implementing GLES3 isn't something you can just do on top of what the api exposes afaic
[12:41] <eix> japro: I guess it requires porting to the vcore GPU, thus the GPU specs
[12:42] <Datalink> we need to bang on the door of Broadcom to stop sucking
[12:42] <Datalink> "hey, either implement this or open the core so we can"
[12:42] <japro> also the device having some constraints is also in the spirit of what it's there for right :D
[12:42] <eix> Broadcom is not an open source/open hardware company, afaik
[12:42] <Datalink> eix, I know...
[12:42] <japro> we are too used to throw away performance and memory anyway
[12:43] <japro> the gpu is a commercial product though?
[12:43] <japro> so at some point they hopefully want GLES3 anyway
[12:43] <eix> or we can just make our own open hardware video card, like it was in the beginning http://koo.corpus.cam.ac.uk/chaos/video16x80.jpg
[12:44] <japro> which will be nowhere close to the performance probably...
[12:44] <Datalink> eix, maybe when I figure out that display I'm working on, I'll tackle that next
[12:44] <eix> japro: there are chances they will pick up GLES3 into more recent product lines, not caring about previous models
[12:44] <Datalink> also fpgas are freaking cheap now... as is RAM...
[12:44] <eix> japro: Intel ad others do that all the time
[12:44] <Datalink> so we could easilly make our own video card
[12:44] <eix> Datalink: I was not serious on that
[12:45] * Killerkid (~l1am9111@unaffiliated/killerkid) has joined #raspberrypi
[12:45] <japro> also implementing a performing GLES3 in a open source model sounds scary

[12:46] * Datalink tries launching minecraft on the pi...
[12:46] <japro> i guess i'll have to write picraft so people can stop trying that :D
[12:47] <Datalink> it doesn't even run XD
[12:47] <japro> i can't see minecraft not completely murdering the pi even if you managed to get it to use GLES instead of software mesa
[12:47] * sirclockalot (~sirclocka@unaffiliated/sirclockalot) Quit (Quit: sirclockalot)
[12:47] <pasky> Datalink: hmm, the issue seems to be that dhclient is run with option -1
[12:47] <japro> just the chunk handling alone will instantly pop the ram
[12:48] <japro> and chunk creation will take ages
[12:48] <Datalink> pasky, that's listen...
[12:48] <Datalink> I think...
[12:48] <japro> loading a visible set of chunks even hits multicore desktop cpus pretty hard and those are multiple orders of magnitude faster
[12:48] <Datalink> who here's good with dhclient, pasky's trying to reconfigure his
[12:49] <pasky> no, -1 is that it tries to get lease only once
[12:49] <pasky> then gives up
[12:49] <pasky> I think what might help is replacing dhclient with dhcpcd
[12:49] <Datalink> you could also edit the dhclient launch script to remove the -l option
[12:49] <pasky> I'll try that
[12:50] <pasky> Datalink: yes but that might make ifup in network start script hang forever if there is no wifi network
[12:50] <japro> it's always funny how people seem to think that minecraft must be easy on the hardware because of the way it looks
[12:51] <japro> when it lots of respects it is more demanding than "real games"
[12:52] * sirclockalot (~sirclocka@unaffiliated/sirclockalot) has joined #raspberrypi
[12:52] <Datalink> yeah, there's so much procedural going on that it takes a lot of processor

[12:52] <japro> that, and also the polygon count is pretty scary
[12:52] <Datalink> Crysis isn't doing procedural world generation
[12:53] <Datalink> jui-feng, Dwarf Fortress

[12:53] <Datalink> oh right, cause of the cubes at every meter
[12:54] <eix> the RPI's ARM has Java instruction set optimizations
[12:54] <japro> most games can abuse smoothness of stuff to reduce polygon count and most of the "fidelity" comes from textures/normal maps etc
[12:54] <japro> not from high polygon counts

[13:13] <Draylor> its a 10/100 port, it'll do 100mbit
[13:14] <Datalink> theoretical... 100Mbit, reality, it's probably be a bit less due to overhead
[13:14] * Datalink watches WW2 era training videos on fire control computers
[13:15] <Datalink> slide cam multiplication... crazy old mechanical computer stuff we'd do on a calculator

[13:16] <Datalink> correction 1953
[13:17] <trijntje> is 100 mbit up and download?
[13:17] <Datalink> full duplex, yes, again, there will be overhead involved so that number will include protocol stuff
[13:18] <trijntje> I only get 2.5 Mbyte on my local network, so I'm guessing it could be a bit higher
[13:19] * wiiguy (~fake@unaffiliated/wiiguy) has joined #raspberrypi
[13:19] <tero> trijntje if you are reading/wruting from SD card that is normal speed
[13:19] * bizarro_1 (~bizarro_1@171.Red-193-152-189.dynamicIP.rima-tde.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[13:20] <eix> Datalink: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mark_I_Fire_Control_Computer fashioning
[13:20] <Datalink> trijntje, notice we've been saying bit, not byte, there's 8 bits in a byte
[13:21] <trijntje> Datalink: I noticed, so a RPi should theoretically get 12.5 Mbyte/s
[13:21] <Datalink> there's also the protocol to consider and as tero noted, you are also writing to an SD card which has a fixed rate
[13:23] <Datalink> in addition to the actual data, you have the frame header, the IP header, the transport header and possibly some overhead with the protocol (varies) these all are excluded from the Mbit/s measurement, but are a part of the protocol
[13:23] <Datalink> without them ethernet wouldn't work
[13:23] <Datalink> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TCP/IP
[13:25] <trijntje> I've connected an external drive to my RPi, so the read speed should not be limited by the sd card
[13:25] <trijntje> I can read 20MB/s from the external drive, according to dd
[13:26] <Datalink> trijntje, even if the download operation is the only thing going on, the Pi is still doing other background tasks to run the operating system, these also contribute to the slowdown
[13:26] <tero> trijntje well the network card is actually connected thru usb port
[13:26] <tero> and yes usb 2.0 is in theory 480mbit
[13:27] <tero> but share that bandwith with all devices
[13:27] <Datalink> heh, I forgot about that part, the USB/Ethernet PHY would be the bottleneck then, since it has to run both operations in that instance
[13:28] <trijntje> I know I shouldn't get 12.5 MB transfers, but 2.5 is so much lower that I was wondering where the bottleneck is. It could be the fact that usb and network are both using the same thing
[13:29] <Datalink> trijntje, it's very likely that, even with just writing to the SD card, I was not getting more than 900K recently, though that was a web download, it's one of the things about the RPi, it's a machine for cost, not speed, so won't break records
[13:30] <nid0> you should happily be able to push over 10MB/s to/from a decent SD card over the ethernet port
[13:30] <bircoe> Don't forget USB 2.0 is half duplex
[13:30] * Behold (~behold@unaffiliated/beholdmyglory) has joined #raspberrypi
[13:31] <bircoe> and with the limited processing power and memory of the Pi you're never going to get blistering speeds
[13:31] <bircoe> in saying that 2.5MB/s is very slow
[13:31] <Datalink> oh right, yeah, because there's only 1 data channel, D+ and D- get sent opposite voltages together to reduce noise over distance, but they are 1 data line, 1 stream of bits

[13:32] <Draylor> 2.5MB/s doing what trijntje ?
[13:32] <bircoe> I tested out the Pi as a SMB server and was writing at 7.5MB/s and reading at around 12MB/s from memory
[13:32] <bircoe> to a USB hard drive... not SD
[13:33] <trijntje> Draylor: nfs and apt-cacher for big files (ie new kernel, if I have a lot of small package updates the speed is lower)
[13:33] <Draylor> yeah, roughly the same numbers i see. bit over 7.5 normally right enough
[13:33] <nid0> I merrily get about 10.5-11MB/s writing from a nas to my pi, or reading from the SD to a nas

[13:37] <trijntje> weird, I dont get why I can't get higher speeds

[13:45] <nid0> it was back in june or so
[13:45] <Draylor> firmware has improved alot over time jui-feng
[13:45] <nid0> there were a load of sd card fixes in the firmware very early on in the debian squeeze image which massively improved sd speed

[14:43] <eix> looks like my client has 2 ip addresses
[14:43] * eix WTF moment
[14:44] <eix> nid0: it was nfs4
[14:47] <eix> ok, I never had such an issue. how can it be that I have two addresses, although only 1 is configured?
[14:48] <eix> I can ping the ghost address from both raspberry pi and laptop, and the MAC is matching
[14:50] <Ryanteck> hmm
[14:50] <Ryanteck> If you accidently plugged 5V into 3V3
[14:50] <Ryanteck> Would it instantly blow up
[14:50] <Ryanteck> or would it take a little bit of time
[14:51] <ReggieUK> it's all relative
[14:52] <ReggieUK> to the components that are in the way
[14:52] <Ryanteck> if you accidently did it for like a second?
[14:52] <Ryanteck> I hope not, I think i saw the 5v pin from my serial connector in the 3v3
[14:52] <Ryanteck> I guess something would have sparked
[14:53] <Ryanteck> Oh well, its all working
[14:53] <ReggieUK> seems like you got lucky

[16:14] <Milos> What was it about the Raspberry Pi's GPIO pins for power that people had to be careful about? Was it that GPIO power doesn't go through a fuse and/or regulator, or something else?
[16:14] <nid0> yeah that, there's no regulation on the gpio power
[16:15] <nid0> so you need to make sure its coming from a decent regulated supply
[16:15] <gordonDrogon> the 5v is via a polyfuse.
[16:15] <gordonDrogon> the 3.3v isn't directly, but since it's taken off the 5v supply it gets the benefit of that one.
[16:15] <Milos> But the GPIO power /is/ fused?
[16:16] <Milos> Just not regulated?
[16:16] <gordonDrogon> don't try to take more than 15mA from each GPIO pin either.
[16:16] <gordonDrogon> it's all regulated.
[16:16] <Milos> Nah I was talking about powering the raspberry pi.
[16:16] <gordonDrogon> and it's fused - via the 700mA polyfuse.
[16:16] <Milos> Not powering devices fro it.
[16:16] <gordonDrogon> Ah.
[16:16] <Milos> s/fro/from/
[16:16] <Milos> And it's not...
[16:16] <Milos> As I just established.
[16:16] <gordonDrogon> right - yes - you must feed it 5V regulated.

[16:59] <UnaClocker> Most TV's aren't EXACTLY 1080p resolution, they round it up/down to fit the glass. Overscan is a way of dealing with that.

[17:00] <tripgod> overscan is the extra area around the normal video image window

[17:03] <tripgod> When is the projected time for the actual jump?
[17:04] <hugorodrigues> the latest firmware improved the analog audio. do you guys think that there is room for more improvment?
[17:06] <plugwash> ThunderTree, overscan is a historical artifact dating from the days when TVs were tube based analog devices
[17:07] <plugwash> the designers of TV standards felt that people didn't want black borders but TVs were neither perfectly square or perfectly consistent
[17:07] * shiftplusone (~Shift@unaffiliated/shiftplusone) has joined #raspberrypi
[17:08] <plugwash> So TV standards made the size of the transmitted picture bigger than the area that was gauranteed to be displayed onscreen (and hence had to contain the meaninful content)

[17:10] * Shift__ (~Shift@unaffiliated/shiftplusone) Quit (Ping timeout: 245 seconds)
[17:11] <plugwash> and it's a PITA when you want to use a TV as a monitor. In it's default setup if you feed a 1920x1080 image into many 1080p TVs the TV will scale it up losing the edges of the image and making the image less sharp
[17:11] <tripgod> omg check out this timeline. so cool. http://www.redbullstratos.com/the-mission/mission-timeline/
[17:12] <plugwash> to avoid losing the edges of the image (and the critical stuff that is usually contained in those edges on a PC screen) the Pi by default includes a border to compensate for overscan
[17:13] <plugwash> ideally for best results you want to turn off overscan on the TV and then turn off the "overscan" setting (should really be called overscan compensation IMO) on the Pi
[17:13] <plugwash> but not all TVs can turn it off and the way of turning it off varies between TVs

[18:09] <japro> that is considered "foul language" will vary greatly though depending on where you are

[18:10] <Peetz0r> is there anyone <16 in here?

[18:11] <ReggieUK> and are prone to mood swings
[18:11] <Peetz0r> mood swings, right :p
[18:11] <Peetz0r> Anyway, back ontopic.
[18:11] <ukscone> ReggieUK gets really cranky if he hasn't had his coffee or has low blood sugar

[18:13] <Peetz0r> That's my electricity meter, and I want to monitor it using a old webcam connected to my RPi
[18:13] <Peetz0r> which I've just tried, but there's not enough light
[18:13] <Peetz0r> has anyone tried something like this before?
[18:13] <CR48_Sean> Simple enough. Just write a program to watch the black stripe on the disk.
[18:14] <Amadiro> Anybody tried the Terratec Aureon Dual USB soundcard? Does it work right out-of-the-box?
[18:14] <CR48_Sean> People do it all the type with a little light sensor
[18:14] <CR48_Sean> You don't even need a webcam

[18:15] <Peetz0r> I'd really like a led light which I can power from usb right now
[18:15] <CR48_Sean> Using a webcam is going to be a lot more difficult. You will have to parse the video data looking for the blac stripe to pass a fixed point
[18:15] <japro> if you are using the webcam it might actually be easier to recognize the numbers
[18:15] <Peetz0r> yeah, using a proper sensor would make morse sense, but I can't find one around here
[18:16] <japro> considering they are always the same and in the same place matching the best pattern should be fairly straight forward
[18:16] <Peetz0r> japro: I want to measure more than just whole kwh's
[18:16] <Peetz0r> one disk rotation is 1/375 kwh
[18:16] <CR48_Sean> YOur best bet is to get a sensor that can watch for the stripe to go by. That is how EVERYBODY that wants to monitor that type of meter does it
[18:17] <Peetz0r> where do I find such hardware for a decent price?
[18:17] <CR48_Sean> Just about any electronics reseller.
[18:17] <Peetz0r> and I assume i can connect that to the gpio pins?

[18:19] <CR48_Sean> Okay, you CAN use a webcam, but, as i said, you will have to write the code to parse the video data to detect when the stripe goes by,

[19:11] <InControl> not directly no
[19:11] <gordonDrogon> I have used one to sample an analogue quantity, but it's a bit of a hack.
[19:12] <InControl> the Raspberry Pi GPIO are digital
[19:12] <gordonDrogon> however it was good enough for The Woz.
[19:12] <gordonDrogon> I managed to get a 0-100 reading from a simple LDR light sensor...

[19:14] <zgreg> what's up with the rumor that all new model b boards will have 512 MB RAM?
[19:14] <InControl> then you can connect a thermister or analogue temperature sensor
[19:14] * scummos^ (~sven@p57B1B996.dip.t-dialin.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[19:15] <gordonDrogon> eix, you need 2 GPIO pins. The circuit is like this: GPIO Pin -> 100R -> LDR --+--> Capacitor -> 0v
[19:15] <InControl> might find this useful http://raspi.tv/2012/using-temperature-sensors-with-gertboard-and-the-raspberry-pi-tmp36-and-lm335z
[19:15] <gordonDrogon> the + is connected to the 2nd GPIO via another 100R resistor.
[19:15] <eix> ah..
[19:16] <gordonDrogon> you use the first to charge the cap, when the 2nd reads high, then you set the first to 0 then wait for the 2nd to read low - repeat, and time the time it takes to charge/discharge and that's then proportional to the voltage.
[19:17] <eix> niice hack :)

[20:29] <mythos> zgreg, darn... ;)
[20:30] * aaa801 has a satellite reciever running a awesome linux app that decrypts everything for him for free
[20:30] <zgreg> all memory access must be managed through the gpu. and the gpu also does a couple of essential bookkeeping tasks
[20:30] <gordonDrogon> I'm not sure Pi's ought to have 512MB.
[20:30] <aaa801> why?
[20:30] <gordonDrogon> If they do then people will develop stuff for 512MB which will alienate the others.
[20:30] <ThunderTree> aaa801: thanks.
[20:30] <zgreg> in fact, the ARM should be seen as a kind of coprocessor of the GPU
[20:30] <aaa801> anyone managed to rip the gpu code apart yet
[20:30] <UnaClocker> The 256mb ones will still be good as XBMC media players, or embedded microcontroller type applications.
[20:31] <InControl> should have at least called it model C or something
[20:31] <piney0> if they get 512m then people will complain they dont have 1g
[20:32] <UnaClocker> I'm using 2 Pi as XBMC players, and 3 as Microcontrollers.. I only use one as a computer, that'd be the one I want to have 512mb..
[20:32] <aaa801> all linux stuff i try and run on my pi tends to crash out after like 30mins
[20:32] <aaa801> just completly locks
[20:32] <aaa801> =/
[20:32] <UnaClocker> XBMC certainly doesn't need more ram, the original XBox it was developed for only has 32mb..
[20:32] <mythos> zgreg, sounds... promising...
[20:33] <zgreg> it's not impossible, but certainly very hard to replace the GPU code

[20:58] <des2> That goes through all the config HDMI options.

[20:59] <Pulser> yeah, that's the one I was referring to...
[20:59] <Pulser> safe mode SHOULD work
[20:59] <Pulser> hmm idea... let me try with an old installer
[20:59] <Pulser> that gives some kind of graphical output for me
[20:59] <ThunderTree> curious why one would want a db on a rasp pi.
[20:59] <des2> I'm guessing the HDMI > VGA isn't sending back some info the PI wants to turn on HDMI
[20:59] <Pulser> des2, tbh I thought that, but I *think* the issue is resolution
[21:00] <Pulser> it DEFINITELY works with arch and regular raspi distro
[21:00] <Pulser> but I did tweak config.txt

[21:02] <ThunderTree> or get postgres :-)
[21:02] <Pulser> ThunderTree, they're fairly competent little servers
[21:02] <Pulser> I've got a project in mind actually
[21:02] <blackspike> ThunderTree: ok. could I trouble you for the Purge syntax?
[21:02] <Pulser> I take it nobody has tried setting up a Rpi as a SIP server?
[21:02] <ThunderTree> apt-get purge mysql*
[21:03] <ThunderTree> Pulser: SIP? Interesting.
[21:03] <blackspike> ThunderTree: cheers.
[21:03] <ThunderTree> blackspike: np
[21:03] <ThunderTree> Pulser: Asterisk?
[21:03] <Pulser> hmmm
[21:03] <Pulser> well let me explain my idea :)
[21:03] <ThunderTree> Pulser: :-)
[21:03] <Pulser> I may be doing this totally wrong
[21:03] <Pulser> I was looking today at this situation
[21:04] <Pulser> your ADSL router has a filter, and a nice little PSTN phone socket
[21:04] <Pulser> your ADSL router has an ethernet port
[21:04] <Pulser> so.....
[21:04] <Pulser> I was thinking to build a sit-between
[21:04] <Pulser> so when the PSTN phone line "rings"
[21:04] <Pulser> it will alert the SIP server
[21:04] <Pulser> the SIP server will then broadcast this through the network
[21:04] <Pulser> where it will go out on WiFi
[21:04] <Pulser> my mobile phone (native SIP support as it's android) will ring
[21:05] <Pulser> with a SIP call
[21:05] <Pulser> I accept/reject based on the caller ID that the Rpi has taken and broadcast on
[21:05] <Pulser> if I accept, the PSTN line call is lifted
[21:05] <Pulser> the Rpi takes it, and punts the audio over SIP
[21:05] * mythos (~mythos@unaffiliated/mythos) has joined #raspberrypi

[21:05] <Pulser> but awesome if it would work :D
[21:05] <Peetz0r> Can't you just use your ISP's sip login on your android phone directly?
[21:05] * SpeedEvil (~quassel@tor/regular/SpeedEvil) Quit (Ping timeout: 245 seconds)
[21:06] <s5fs> Pulser: interesting, and i'm no dsl guy, but don't you have to run filters on the lines that are not connected to the dsl modem?
[21:07] <blackspike> ok, purged, updated, rebooting (just for fun!), then will try MySQL again ... fingers crossed ...
[21:07] <ThunderTree> blackspike: gl :-)
[21:07] <s5fs> Pulser: we use asterisk at work, have a dedicated dsl line and use voipstreet for our DIDs
[21:07] <Pulser> Peetz0r, no SIP on ISP
[21:07] <Pulser> s5fs, yeah I will use filter on it
[21:08] <Pulser> basically, you need to put a filter on any device connecting to the phone line
[21:08] <Pulser> to separate voiceband frequencies (upto 8kHz) from the broadband data
[21:08] <s5fs> Pulser: okay, so you're going to use a second line (not the one between the wall and the adsl router)?
[21:08] <Pulser> but that's fine, rpi would plug into the filter :)
[21:08] <Pulser> s5fs, basically forget those intricacies, the idea is that the Rpi plugs into the phone line
[21:09] <Pulser> don't worry about filters
[21:09] <Pulser> I can do those :)
[21:09] <Pulser> I've got tonnes
[21:09] * rollin_rob (~rob@ has joined #raspberrypi
[21:09] <s5fs> Pulser: understood, just trying to get the interconnects straight in my head. if it's an "inline" solution it seems more complicated than just sitting on a line somewhere away from the modem
[21:09] <ThunderTree> rasPBXpi :-)
[21:10] <Pulser> s5fs, yeah the way I understand it tbh
[21:10] * markbook (~markllama@pool-74-104-180-140.bstnma.fios.verizon.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[21:10] <Pulser> you can plug into the same filter
[21:10] <Pulser> using the "phone" port
[21:10] * Killerkid (~l1am9111@unaffiliated/killerkid) Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[21:10] <s5fs> Pulser: gotcha
[21:10] <Pulser> the filter is basically a low-pass filter (ok bandpass, let's ignore that for now) for upto 8kHz on the phone line
[21:10] <Pulser> and a band-pass (effectively high-pass) for the broadband
[21:10] <Peetz0r> Pulser: every ISP uses SIP these days, but they might not tell you ;)
[21:10] <Peetz0r> too bad if they're of that kind
[21:10] <Pulser> Peetz0r, the issue is my ISP isn't my phone provider
[21:10] <Pulser> (I'm UK)
[21:11] <Pulser> 21CN is digital, but it's not SIP afaik
[21:11] <Peetz0r> I'm in NL, so that shouldn't bee too different, right?
[21:11] <Pulser> nah, it's very different
[21:11] <Pulser> the UK system is very interesting
[21:11] <Pulser> but AFAIK there's no SIP
[21:11] <Pulser> and my ISP is nothing to do with my phone (OK it's on the same copper, that's it...)
[21:11] <ThunderTree> BT. Hatred.
[21:11] <blackspike> bum! still no mysql! :(
[21:11] <Pulser> ThunderTree, indeed!
[21:12] <ThunderTree> blackspike: Whats it doing? :-)
[21:12] <blackspike> invoke-rc.d: initscript mysql, action "start" failed. dpkg: error processing mysql-server-5.5 (--configure): subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1 Errors were encountered while processing: mysql-server-5.5 E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
[21:12] <Peetz0r> So BT has created it's own proprietary voip system?
[21:12] <Peetz0r> too bad...
[21:12] <Pulser> Peetz0r, 21CN is the name
[21:13] <Peetz0r> yeah, just found the wikipedia article
[21:13] * adibis (~aditya@cpe-24-94-25-93.san.res.rr.com) Quit (Ping timeout: 252 seconds)
[21:13] <Pulser> your calls are not on the "internet"
[21:13] <Pulser> it's a private network BT uses
[21:13] <Pulser> totally separate from broadband
[21:13] * int3nz0r (~int3nz0r@ Quit (Ping timeout: 240 seconds)
[21:14] <ThunderTree> blackspike: How are you doing the install? The exact command :-)
[21:14] <Peetz0r> Here most ISP's are also the phone providers, and the dsl/cable/ftth modems als also SIP ATA's preconfigured by the ISP, and in 90% of the cases, they never tell you about it,a nd is some cases it's not accessible from the internet either
[21:14] <blackspike> sudo apt-get install mysql-server-5.5 (although ahve tried without the "5.5", with the same effect
[21:14] * Killerkid (~l1am9111@unaffiliated/killerkid) has joined #raspberrypi
[21:14] <Peetz0r> but it's nice to know that they're using a known protocol somewhere, and some ISP's actually allow you to use other SIP clients
[21:14] * SpeedEvil (~quassel@tor/regular/SpeedEvil) has joined #raspberrypi
[21:15] <eix> Peetz0r: so you can use SIP also without it being part of your subscription?
[21:15] <ThunderTree> blackspike: Hmmm.
[21:15] <eix> Peetz0r: you still miss the login codes, right?
[21:15] <ThunderTree> blackspike: You see any error messages? /var/log/messages or /var/log/mysql.err
[21:15] <Pulser> Peetz0r, that's a nice system
[21:15] <Peetz0r> eix: for those isp's you can find the login codes somewhere :)
[21:15] <Pulser> yeah
[21:15] * int3nz0r (~int3nz0r@ has joined #raspberrypi
[21:15] <Peetz0r> Pulser: indeed, it is
[21:16] <Pulser> I dunno... I am in the UK and I'm not changing country
[21:16] <Pulser> so I intend to look into this
[21:16] <Pulser> I dunno if this is even possible
[21:16] <Peetz0r> eix: you need an subscription with a phone number and everything to use SIP
[21:16] <ThunderTree> blackspike: Did you at meast put a password in the prompt? Or did it not even get that far?
[21:16] <Peetz0r> Pulser: can you transfer your number to a different provider?
[21:17] <Peetz0r> if so, then just find a SIP provider you like :)
[21:17] <blackspike> ThunderTree: theres a ton of stuff (?) in /var/log/messages, no idea what it means. can't see "mysql" or similar . nothing i mysql.err. yes, i put a password in 3 times
[21:17] * oldtopman (~oldtopman@unaffiliated/oldtopman) has joined #raspberrypi
[21:17] <Pulser> nah Peetz0r that's not an option
[21:17] <Pulser> the point is, I want this to be a "drop in" solution
[21:17] <Pulser> so that if SIP isn't working, we still have PSTN working as usual
[21:17] <Pulser> I simply plug this "black box" into the phone socket, and the router
[21:18] <Pulser> and it's sorted
[21:18] <Pulser> http://www.asterisk.org/applications/gateway
[21:18] <Pulser> this sounds promising though
[21:18] <Pulser> hmmm... does a USB "modem" exist (yeah... one of those ancient V90 things :D)
[21:18] <ThunderTree> blackspike: Can you copy and paste?
[21:19] <ReggieUK> no
[21:19] <ReggieUK> stop spamming the channel and learn to use www.pastebin.com
[21:19] <blackspike> ThunderTree: I can ...
[21:19] <ThunderTree> blackspike: er, lol. No dont.
[21:19] <ThunderTree> blackspike: I mean can you cxopy and paste if i put a command in here for you to put in your rasp pi. lol
[21:20] * ThunderTree really should be clearer on tese things.
[21:20] <blackspike> ThunderTree: lol. yes, i can do that. :)
[21:20] <ThunderTree> okay. Hang fire 1 sec. btw - are you sudo'ing everything? Or you able to jump into root?
[21:21] <blackspike> ThunderTree: i'm using Putty to remote access, and sudo from user: pi
[21:22] <ThunderTree> blackspike: Do this: --> sudo passwd <-- Then you can set password for root, and log in as root :-)
[21:22] <blackspike> ok, passwd set
[21:23] <rikkib> add line to ssh config
[21:23] <rikkib> I will get the setting

[21:52] <blackspike> http://pastebin.com/pVu8sMJU
[21:52] <blackspike> just mysql-5.5 and -common
[21:55] <ThunderTree> hmmm. I'd remove them again. Then do an autoremove. Then fix, to see results, and then delete /etc/mysql and then reinstall. lol.
[21:55] <blackspike> lol.
[21:55] <ThunderTree> Do this first --> apt-get purge 'mysql*' && apt-get autoremove && apt-get -f <--
[21:56] <blackspike> well, i started imaging my SD card at 11am, its now 9pm, and i'm about to re-image it, startover. and have a beer
[21:56] <ThunderTree> Then when this finished do a --> apt-get check <--
[21:56] <ThunderTree> lol. To be fair, yes, a reimage is pretty quick and may be a good idea :-)
[21:57] <ThunderTree> It installed first time on mine.
[21:57] <rikkib> Until the dependencies are met it is likely the same results will be seen.

[21:59] <Peetz0r> blackspike: sorry, wasn't there for a moment
[21:59] <Peetz0r> are you trying to install 5.1 and 5.5?
[21:59] <Peetz0r> that won't work

[22:04] <mythos> oh, that reminds me on my first debian-installation (sarge).... needed five tries to get an oracle db up and running...
[22:05] <Peetz0r> blame oracle
[22:05] <Peetz0r> always blme oracle whenever they are involved in anyway
[22:05] <blackspike> :) I've done plenty of Windows re-installs. Linux .... not so much ...
[22:05] <Peetz0r> blame*
[22:05] <mythos> Peetz0r, in fact it was really oracles fault. the package needed bc, but it wasn't a dependency
[22:05] <Peetz0r> :p
[22:05] <Peetz0r> I'm not really talking about os-reinstalls
[22:05] <blackspike> anyhoo, thanks again. have a drink on me.

[22:08] <ThunderTree> :-) Actually, i think there was attempts for package management for windows. Chocolate something or other.
[22:08] <Peetz0r> ThunderTree: that machine didn't have internet
[22:08] <ThunderTree> Oh.
[22:09] <Peetz0r> deecnt package management shouldn't come from a 3rd party, but should be part of the OS itself
[22:09] <Peetz0r> on windows, it should be a part of Windows update somehow
[22:09] <rikkib> maicod, I remember reading stuff on the RPF announcing the availability... Perhaps a search of the forum
[22:09] <ThunderTree> Peetz0r: Yeah. I never understand why they never attempted it.
[22:09] <Peetz0r> but windows is too far beyond that, so it won't work now
[22:10] <maicod> rikkib: thanks I've already read that and I can fill in a form right now if I wish but it takes 72 hours and I'm in dounbt cause I got 2 Pi's if I should get 2 licenses or 1 and for which one

[22:13] <bircoe> Peetz0r, I totally agree, earlier this year the organisation I work for upgraded the SOE from XP + Office 2003 to Win 7 + Office 2010, with approx 7500 people the amount that struggled with the interface changes in Win 7 and Office 2010 was outrageous, these same people are going to die when Win 8 gets pushed on them!
[22:13] <rikkib> How much are they?
[22:13] <maicod> if I want to use both Pi's for mpeg2 that is :)
[22:14] <maicod> 2.40 english pound

[22:15] <Peetz0r> bircoe: yeah, I'm already scared by the face that some day my parents will come at me with 100's of stupid questions about things which 'just work' if they have the courage to 'just click the damn button for it'
[22:15] <ThunderTree> You need a license key for 2.40? Why?
[22:15] <rikkib> I think that is the idea... The codecs are in the gpu
[22:15] <bircoe> Welcome to my world :/
[22:15] <rikkib> Just need unlocking
[22:15] <Peetz0r> "yes, the button looks different, and is in a different place, but that doesn't matter. NOW CLICK IT!!!"
[22:15] <maicod> yeah to enable the GPU for mpeg2 I bet
[22:16] <Peetz0r> "but I want the old button back, it was way better because it was old" *sigh*
[22:16] <midnightyell> My attitude is that my parents paid for my computer education, and so are entitled to tech support :)
[22:16] <maicod> raspi guys got the GPU for cheap but it means they didnt get all access to it for that price :)
[22:16] <ThunderTree> maicod: Wierd.
[22:17] <bircoe> Currently work on a helpdesk (but also bounce between SOE and Platforms teams as needed), and the silly questions you get would astound you... my favourite one is when people receive a warning that only has an OK button and feel inclined to call us to ask what to do...
[22:17] <maicod> ThunderTree: well it would be either asking more for the Pi or ask that to certain users wanting mpeg2 decoding
[22:17] <maicod> I think thats the strategy
[22:17] <rikkib> One has to realize the thinking around the RPi is, well, a bit flawed imho.
[22:18] <Amorsen> There's nothing like supporting software patents
[22:18] <Peetz0r> bircoe: and you respond with "have you tried turning it off and on again?" ?
[22:18] <maicod> rikkib: flawed as in ... ?
[22:18] <ThunderTree> maicod: I think i kinda see the mentality. Hey guys, can we have a gpu cheaper? "no, cos its good. " Well we want to use it for the pi, and most people wont even use it for its intended elite superpowers. "Okay, then we'll do it cheaper, but if they want elite superpowers they have to ask us. That way we can cut a deal".
[22:19] <rikkib> academic vs commercial
[22:19] <maicod> ThunderTree: right :)
[22:19] <ThunderTree> guess it kinda makes some sense.
[22:19] <Amorsen> The money primarily end up with Fraunhofer &co for patent licensing
[22:19] <maicod> why the hello do they want us to cat the cpu serial nr instead of the gpu serial nr ?
[22:19] <maicod> hello=hell
[22:19] <rikkib> A better middle be found in time. I cite 256MB V 512MB
[22:19] <rikkib> middle ground
[22:20] <rikkib> VReg PD
[22:20] <maicod> amorsen: so they paid for mp3 decoder (enclosed into the Pi's price) ?
[22:20] <Amorsen> maicod: I presume mp3 is in software
[22:20] <maicod> I thought mp3 decoding was done in software
[22:20] <maicod> yeah
[22:20] <Amorsen> They paid for H.264
[22:20] <maicod> indeed
[22:20] <maicod> yeah only H264
[22:21] <Amorsen> Well everything is in software, really
[22:21] <maicod> amorsen: but you said about paying fraunhofer ?
[22:21] <Amorsen> But mp3 is in ARM software running on the CPU
[22:21] <maicod> fraunhofer=mp3
[22:21] <Amorsen> maicod, Fraunhofer has lots of video patents too
[22:21] <maicod> also the H264 ?
[22:22] <maicod> btw decoding of 1080P is flawless on the GPU
[22:22] <Amorsen> There's a whole bunch of patent holders for H.264
[22:22] <maicod> incredible that the small Pi can do this :)
[22:22] <Amorsen> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MPEG_LA
[22:22] <maicod> oh
[22:22] <maicod> oh they shared the patents
[22:22] <Amorsen> Err, they each patented a small part
[22:22] <maicod> aha
[22:23] <maicod> and each get a piece of the cake :)
[22:23] <maicod> of the payings
[22:23] <midnightyell> The camera that the Pi foundtation is planning to release soon will supposedly do HD recording
[22:23] <Amorsen> Then they set up a joint organization to do the "nice house you have, would be sad if it burned down" bit
[22:24] <maicod> hehee extraction :)

[22:26] <maicod> yea
[22:26] <Peetz0r> lol :p
[22:27] <maicod> does anyone know this ?
[22:27] <Peetz0r> actually, System-on-a-Chip
[22:27] <maicod> I got a 1073DD realtek based videoplayer
[22:27] <maicod> is that the same GPU?
[22:27] <maicod> wondering cause it can do 1080P too
[22:27] <Peetz0r> don't think so
[22:28] <midnightyell> so, whoever it was that talked about using distcc on the Pi to cross-compile, thank you
[22:28] <maicod> ok cause that one has SLOW linux too
[22:28] <Peetz0r> I gues srealtek makes their own SoC's, and doesn't use the broadcom videocore thing
[22:28] <[SLB]> is the firmware ready for memory split suitable for 512mb of ram?
[22:28] <maicod> realtek is worse than broadcom?
[22:28] <Peetz0r> maicod: I kinda like both
[22:28] <Peetz0r> for wifi chipsets, realtek is better than atheros
[22:29] <maicod> and atheros=broadcom?
[22:29] <Peetz0r> and I like broadcom just for the Pi
[22:29] <Peetz0r> nope
[22:29] <maicod> oh no ok
[22:29] <Peetz0r> atheros is now part of qualcomm
[22:29] <Peetz0r> and their linux support seems to suck
[22:29] <maicod> I have this problem: http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=19816&p=193111#p193111

[22:35] <maicod> I can't say it works cause its in use too short
[22:35] <maicod> need more days of working with it
[22:35] <maicod> also I use my 2nd Pi now
[22:35] <Peetz0r> yeah, I don't actually fully trust the list
[22:35] <eix> maicod: I also suffered corruption, but related to overclocking
[22:35] <Peetz0r> but you have tried 2 cards, both the same problem?
[22:35] <maicod> eix: ah OK I didnt get to the point of trying the overclocking yet
[22:35] <Peetz0r> do you also have that problem on your 2nd Pi?
[22:36] <maicod> Peetz0r: well I have used the 2nd Pi for shorter times before and then it had the same troubles it seems but to be sure I am using it again now
[22:36] <maicod> we'll see THIS time
[22:36] <Peetz0r> so you haven't tried the 2nd pi long anough to be sure?

[22:40] <Peetz0r> if it doesn't hapen, you still don't know
[22:40] <maicod> peetz0r: yeah good idea
[22:40] <maicod> I will try tonight
[22:40] <Peetz0r> there's no rpi-update in my repo

[22:46] <Peetz0r> nope, but I actually assume that every sd card will work
[22:46] <Peetz0r> but that none of them is perfect
[22:46] <maicod> Peetz0r: my 16Gb sandisk doesnt work at all
[22:46] <maicod> so not all work
[22:46] * heathkid (~heathkid@unaffiliated/heathkid) Quit (Ping timeout: 240 seconds)
[22:47] <Peetz0r> if you produce a bazzilion of even the best sd cards, one of them will be broken
[22:47] <Peetz0r> so your 16gb sandisk card might just be bad luck
[22:47] <maicod> yea probably
[22:47] <maicod> or its controller chip is imcompatible with the kernels driver
[22:47] <Peetz0r> but every card which is built for the SD specs sould work, and none of them are perfect
[22:48] <Peetz0r> so it doesn't matter which chip is on there, as long as it speaks the sd protocol
[22:48] <maicod> yeah but some might not implement all SD commands neatly
[22:48] <Peetz0r> if you look at the wifi adapters on that list, and compare the ones with the same chipset as I have, you see different results. I saaume that is because some people can't get it to work for reasons not related to the wifi adapter, because they are all the same
[22:48] <maicod> you never know :0
[22:49] <Peetz0r> interesting fact, every micro-sized wifi adapter in the world has the same chipset: rtl8192cu
[22:49] <maicod> Peetz0r: yeah peoples 'stupidity'
[22:49] <Peetz0r> maicod: that's why I don't assume what's on that list

[22:59] <Peetz0r> I have overclocked my router (354 => 500), phone (528 => 768) and Pi (700=>950)
[22:59] <maicod> Peetz0r:1000 didnt work?
[22:59] <Peetz0r> oh, ans also a P3 (600 => 675)
[23:00] <midnightyell> but I also like it when fans don't scream at me, so I tend towards slower & cooler :)

[23:02] <maicod> yeah thats logical allthough its fun to run old machines :)
[23:02] <Peetz0r> especially when I explained to my parents how they would earn that new machine back in power usage
[23:02] <maicod> and a 2nd hand psu is cheap

[23:02] <maicod> my server is a P1 !!
[23:02] <maicod> it uses 50 watts
[23:02] <Peetz0r> I still have a celeron box from 2004 lying around
[23:02] <maicod> P2 celeron?
[23:03] <Peetz0r> nope, P4 celeron
[23:03] <maicod> celeron sucks major :)
[23:03] <maicod> oh :)
[23:03] <maicod> I had a P2 that looked like a book (the casing of the cpu
[23:03] <maicod> _
[23:03] <maicod> )
[23:03] <Peetz0r> my P3 uses about the same as the Atom, but the psu and chipset and stuff in the new box is much more energy-efficient
[23:03] <[SLB]> i still have my p1 from 1997 working :3
[23:03] <maicod> slb: same here !
[23:03] <[SLB]> 166mhz :D
[23:04] <maicod> slb: only the cpufans keep needing to be replaced :(
[23:04] <Peetz0r> and the new chipset has gigabit, where the ond one didn't have ethernet at all, and relied on a pci network card
[23:04] <maicod> ball bearings suck
[23:04] <[SLB]> for me the hd is dying i guess
[23:04] <maicod> slb: mine is a 200 but o/c-ed to 233
[23:04] <Peetz0r> the fan in the psu was the reason it broke
[23:04] <maicod> oh I got a 2nd hand spare HDD lying for it
[23:04] <[SLB]> ah eheh, i remember i connected the turbo button to the jumpers to have it at 200
[23:05] <Peetz0r> it made enough noise to declare it 'broken' while it was still supplying power ;)
[23:05] <maicod> slb: I just used the jumpers on the mobo without a button on the case :)
[23:05] <[SLB]> eheh
[23:05] <maicod> back the o/cing was just moving some jumpers :)
[23:05] <maicod> back then
[23:06] <maicod> the mobo for the P1 was one that was lying around in old stick as a new one
[23:06] <fiftyonefifty> Does the RPi have printer drivers in CUPS? I can get right up to the point where I would select a driver on my ODroidX and then it won't even let me provide a PPD. I thought since RPI development was more mature, you might have a solution
[23:06] <maicod> so it was new while economically it was old
[23:06] <maicod> bougth it in 2002
[23:07] <maicod> my fingers are crossed :P
[23:07] <maicod> slb: have you replaced the cpufan often?
[23:08] <[SLB]> never
[23:08] <maicod> is yours on 24/7 ?

[23:12] <Peetz0r> yeah, but on modern desktop desktop machines there's no reason to OC anymore
[23:12] <japro> depends on what you do i guess :D
[23:12] <Peetz0r> I cannot remember when I needed more cpu power then my c2d or i3 at clock speeds could give me
[23:13] <maicod> :)
[23:13] <japro> encoding and streaming high quality video from games would be an example where it doesn't hort
[23:13] <japro> hurt
[23:13] <Peetz0r> both of them run on 1/2 or 1/3 of their stock speeds most of the time
[23:13] <japro> not sure if strictly needed but a common setup among people doing that is to use a i5 and ramp up the clocks to 4.5ghz+
[23:14] <Peetz0r> you don't encode video in software, don't you?
[23:14] * cpg|away is now known as cpg
[23:14] <japro> sure why not :D
[23:14] <japro> if you have a cpu that can pull that off its easier than having encoding hardware that will also be way more expensive
[23:14] <Peetz0r> I've heard the Pi can encode h264 in hardware somehow
[23:14] <JamesHarrison> it can, yes
[23:14] <JamesHarrison> it has a hardware encoding element
[23:15] <Peetz0r> so connect your desktop output to the Pi somehow (trough CSI?) and you're done :)
[23:15] <jui-feng> for compiling big software projects or doing scientific simulations / calculations, CPUs can't be fast enough.
[23:15] <japro> i think lots of gpus and cpus actually could as well
[23:15] <maicod> peetz04: would be cool if we can use the GPU for calculations like encoding etc
[23:15] <japro> but somehow not that much software is capable of using that functionality
[23:15] <Peetz0r> okay, compiling is a good reason
[23:15] <des2> zleap: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JWCzwU9_g3E
[23:15] <japro> certainly not the free stuff people tend to use for streaming
[23:15] <des2> It looks like the Amazon one has an RCA type video in.
[23:15] <Peetz0r> and yes, gpu's are dangerously powerful compared to cpu's
[23:16] <japro> for certain tasks
[23:16] <Peetz0r> des2: amazon what?
[23:16] <japro> and encoding was one of the examples where they were not that impressive afaik
[23:16] <Peetz0r> oh, zleap's monitor
[23:16] <maicod> peetz0r: could the gpu do certain cpu tasks like compressing mp3s or zip-files etc ?
[23:16] <des2> Peetz0r I was referring to the link zleap posted to an LCD
[23:17] <Peetz0r> des2,zleap: looks like composite in, so yeah, looks good
[23:17] <Peetz0r> and for that price, I want one too :)
[23:17] <japro> things where gpus obliterate cpus are typically the floating point computation heavy linear access kind
[23:17] <japro> like BLAS, FFT and obviously almost any sort of image manipulation since that is what they are built for
[23:17] <zleap> cool
[23:17] <japro> but very often you end up just with having the additional memory bandwidth
[23:18] <zleap> would be useful when taking the pi to places where there are no displays around
[23:18] <zleap> also portable
[23:18] <japro> since saturating the alus is pretty hard to pull of with most tasks

[23:23] <japro> damn, i need a way to record video from my pi so i can make "gameplay videos"
[23:23] <japro> i guess at some point i'll have go with the janky point-camera-at-monitor-approach
[23:24] <rikkib> Or many screen shots

[23:24] <maicod> Peetz0r: thats a thing I really had troubles with when i got the Pi
[23:24] <maicod> oops
[23:24] <maicod> I was scrolled up L)
[23:24] <japro> yeah, but there is no reasonable way the pi can handle a output stream of that many images
[23:25] <maicod> I needed to get a HDMI monitor
[23:25] <japro> i at first used the HD TV :D... turns out reading the console from the couch in 1080p was beyond my eyes capability :D
[23:26] <maicod> japro: I had that too !
[23:26] <japro> now i either disconnect the monitor from my desktop or use the projector
[23:26] <maicod> I used the large LED TV in living room cause I had no other screens with HDMI and composite out sucked !
[23:26] <rikkib> I use Philips 236V 23" Wide Screen LCD and Sony 23" TV

[23:28] <maicod> not much
[23:28] <maicod> dunno how much euros a NZD is ?

[23:30] <rikkib> Cheap goods from China in NZ (CER)
[23:31] * ka6sox is now known as zz_ka6sox
[23:31] <rikkib> $2USD - $8USD for the relays and VReg's I use for the RPi
[23:32] <maicod> yeah china can get you cheap stuff but it takes a long time to receive the stuff
[23:32] <maicod> at least to europe that is
[23:32] <maicod> not always but it CAN take 4 weeks sometimes
[23:32] <rikkib> Regular freight from HK & China emans freight is not really an issue
[23:33] <rikkib> I get stuff with 2 weeks
[23:33] <rikkib> within

[23:36] <rikkib> Waiting for some polyfuses so I can hook the dc-dc converter to the RPi GPIO
[23:37] <rikkib> ATM the DC-DC converter is only powering the relays.
[23:37] * plugwash would probablly just hook it up directly
[23:38] <des2> Why wouild you want polyfuses ?
[23:39] <des2> http://hackaday.com/2012/09/04/problems-powering-raspberry-pi-from-gpio-header/
[23:39] <rikkib> Switches on P0 & P1 for user input but probably going to add more switches. Application: Gate opener with vid/audio link to end point (Any OS running a browser)
[23:39] <rikkib> The RPi has a 1 odd amp poly on the power in
[23:40] <ReggieUK> noit doesn't
[23:40] <rikkib> Going in the GPIO has no protection
[23:40] <ReggieUK> that's not what I meant
[23:41] <ReggieUK> it's got a 700ma polyfuse on the micro usb connector 5v in
[23:41] <des2> 700mA hold, 1.1A trip.
[23:42] <rikkib> Yes but I think if you search you will find I am correct... Term power raspberry from gpio.

[23:43] <plugwash> des2, well if you are using a big power supply to run something like a Pi i'd certainly want some form of protection
[23:43] <plugwash> I'm not sure I would consider 3.5A as "big" though
[23:44] * kkimlabs (~kkimlabs@cpe-24-90-68-199.nyc.res.rr.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[23:44] <plugwash> the polyswitches on the USB ports were a disaster but that is a seperate issue
[23:44] <des2> Per the hack a day discussion the GPIO traces are a problem.
[23:44] <rikkib> These DC-DC converters do 2A easy 3A with heatsink
[23:44] <des2> Being that the PI was never intended to be GPIO powered.
[23:45] <Peetz0r> maicod: yeah, same here, the tv in the living room is the only display I could connect it to.
[23:45] <JamesHarrison> des2: iirc the traces are consistent across the board for power
[23:45] * digilicious (~gene@digilicious.com) Quit (Quit: Leaving.)
[23:46] <Peetz0r> which is an analog tv from 2002 or something :p
[23:46] <rikkib> The benefit outweighs the bad... I can power the RPi via the GPIO and fuses offer the needed protection
[23:46] <plugwash> The original article speculated it was trace thickness but the comments pretty quickly narrowed in on the polyfuses as the cause
[23:46] <Peetz0r> it's composite only. while my desktop display is vga only :p
[23:46] <rikkib> The benefit, I can set the 5v level.
[23:46] <Peetz0r> so yeah, I need a cheap display with either composite or hdmi
[23:46] <plugwash> low rating polyfuses (or indeed fuses in general) are a pain because they have to have enough resistance to make them heat up and trip
[23:47] <plugwash> so the resistance ends up going up as roughly the inverse square of the trip current
[23:47] <des2> buy a fast blow 2 amp fuse or actual breaker.
[23:47] <des2> The resistance of the polyfuses is problematic.
[23:48] <rikkib> I do not intend to power much off the RPi itself.
[23:48] <des2> So JamesHarrison the 5v traces from the GPIO are the same thickness as the other power carrying traces ?
[23:48] <JamesHarrison> des2: afaik, yes.
[23:48] <JamesHarrison> Polyfuses are problematic, yeah
[23:48] <JamesHarrison> Rev2 board did away with them, no?
[23:49] <des2> the USB ones yes.

[23:49] <C-M> des2 if not it should be easy to add a wire between the fuse and the gpio pin
[23:49] <des2> Peerz0r google amazon filler.

[23:51] <JamesHarrison> Being able to easily hook in a 'proper' supply would be a nice addition, DC jack or similar
[23:51] <plugwash> JamesHarrison, it did away with the low rating polyfuses on the usb host ports
[23:51] <JamesHarrison> plugwash: Aha, but main polyfuse still there. Right.

[23:52] <rikkib> Actually a bad oversight not to provide a .1 pitch power conn
[23:53] <rikkib> Many boards do.
[23:53] <des2> the GPIO has a .1 pitch power connector
[23:53] <C-M> btw, wouldn't a z diode be sufficient as protection?

[23:57] * Behold (~behold@unaffiliated/beholdmyglory) Quit (Ping timeout: 240 seconds)
[23:58] <rikkib> It is all to do with the layout of the RPi board. The traces to the point were the gpio connected to the main 5v rail are to small.
[23:59] <rikkib> Fault on anything hanging off the board may see the track fry.
