IRC Log for 2012-10-23

Timestamps are in GMT/BST.

[0:00] <qrwteyrutiyoup> and you should be able to use a more recent wheezy snapshot as well (I suppose there is a newer one, no?)
[0:01] * Noodlewitt (~Noodlewit@r49-3-0-137.cpe.vividwireless.net.au) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:01] * PiBot sets mode +v Noodlewitt
[0:03] <spadusa> I used the newer one.
[0:03] <spadusa> I'll need to download the vanilla image again, though.
[0:03] <spadusa> I don't have a copy unchanged.
[0:03] <Cheery> is there good opengl python bindings for raspberry pi yet?
[0:03] * Mikelevel (~mOvEwOrK@60.Red-80-25-210.staticIP.rima-tde.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:03] * PiBot sets mode +v Mikelevel
[0:04] <spadusa> Is there any reason not to use the QtonPi distro available on the raspberrypi.org/downloads?

[0:06] * int3nz0r (~int3nz0r@ Quit (Quit: Computer has gone to sleep.)
[0:06] <qrwteyrutiyoup> I guess it stopped being updated, spadusa. I am not sure, but I believe I read something about the efforts being directed to the wheezy distro, as in, it would provide the qt packages there, so there was no need to duplicate the efforts.
[0:06] <qrwteyrutiyoup> I am guessing you are compiling just for like learning how it works, as there should be snapshots available somewhere? (not really sure, since I dont use it)
[0:07] * kkimlabs (~kkimlabs@cpe-24-90-68-199.nyc.res.rr.com) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[0:07] <spadusa> Honestly, I was just going to use it to write a GUI for a project I'm working on.
[0:07] <spadusa> This took me the last two days to get working, though, and it still isn't working. So could you recommend a better way to write a GUI on the RaspPi other than Qt?
[0:08] * lupinedk is now known as Lupinedk
[0:08] * thomashunter (~thomashun@ Quit (Quit: thomashunter)
[0:09] <Shift_> Why not use a version of Qt that's included in the distros?

[0:09] <Shift_> I'd imagine that there would have to be, since a lot of programs use it.
[0:10] <qrwteyrutiyoup> this page http://qt-project.org/wiki/RaspberryPi lists "Installing Qt 5 nightlies from the repo". check it out :)

[0:31] <lotia> Have a class 10 SanDisk 32GB Ultra SD card which wont't boot ArchLinux on a 512MB Pi. The card simply doesn't boot. What's the best way to get debug info on that?
[0:32] <TheSeven> lotia: only the red led is on? no green blinking or anything?

[0:58] <lotia> ShiftPlusOne: nope. nothing screen never starts up.
[0:58] <lotia> left most light green. next light red.
[0:58] <ShiftPlusOne> I think that's a pretty clear SD card issue.
[0:59] <ShiftPlusOne> I would maybe blow on the card and into the slot (without spitting) and put the card in a few times to make sure the contact is solid, but I don't think that will do anything.

[1:02] <lotia> ShiftPlusOne: funnily enough, it booted fine before the update.
[1:02] <ShiftPlusOne> can you "ls -la" on the sdcard?
[1:02] <ShiftPlusOne> assuming you're running linux
[1:04] <lotia> ShiftPlusOne: running os X
[1:05] <ShiftPlusOne> should be fine, just launch the terminal, go to where the card is mounted and pastebin the output
[1:05] <lotia> ShiftPlusOne: do you want to see the bott partition?
[1:05] <lotia> ShiftPlusOne: boot even?
[1:05] <ShiftPlusOne> yup

[1:12] <ShiftPlusOne> could be, but you didn't replace the kernel, did you?
[1:13] <ShiftPlusOne> I don't think it gets that far. You'd be seeing a bit more flickering on the LEDs I think.
[1:13] <lotia> ShiftPlusOne: I didn't, but the installer did.
[1:14] <lotia> sorry package manager.
[1:14] <lotia> no worries. this is part of the fun.
[1:14] <ShiftPlusOne> What did you do exactly? Install arch, then do a pacman update, restart and it stopped working?
[1:15] <lotia> ShiftPlusOne: correct.
[1:16] <ShiftPlusOne> Maybe copy the firmware files from here and see what happens https://github.com/raspberrypi/firmware/tree/master/boot

[2:47] <uncola> hi mkopack
[2:47] <uncola> what have you been doing with your rpi lately?
[2:47] <uncola> fill us in
[2:48] <mkopack> I haven't been able to get into here in MONTHS??? Never could figure out how to register my Nick. Was totally thrown off when they started forcing it....
[2:48] <mike007> i'll try that
[2:48] <mkopack> eh, well, I did some work to help everyone get Robot OS (ROS) working on it, and I've set 1 up as a game emulator machine??? Stella, Vice64, need to get MAME on it as well
[2:49] <mkopack> I have a 512MB unit on the way??? should get here tomorrow or Wed
[2:50] <uncola> mine got here saturday night
[2:50] <mkopack> I'm hoping the 512MB will be helpful with ROS.

[3:01] <des2> Robots have their own operating system ?
[3:01] <des2> Shouldn't we put a stop to it before they take over ?
[3:01] <SpeedEvil> c3po runs on poppos.
[3:02] <mkopack> Well, it's really just a standardized framework for making modular processing for robotic use??? And a ton of libraries for doing different robot-related things, like vision, sensor reading, path planning, etc.

[3:15] <des2> Yes they had some bad issues today.
[3:16] <des2> It must have been really windy up there.

[4:29] <ShiftPlusOne> did you set the proper permission on the relevant file(s) in /dev ?
[4:29] <ShiftPlusOne> and do you get the same error if you run it as root?
[4:29] <maicod> you mean chmod a+rw /dev/vchiq
[4:29] <maicod> I tried it too
[4:29] <maicod> also did : echo 'SUBSYSTEM=="vchiq",GROUP="video",MODE="0660"' > /etc/udev/rules.d/10-vchiq-permissions.rules
[4:29] <maicod> usermod -a -G video [your_username]

[4:30] <maicod> ofcourse I used user Pi
[4:30] <ShiftPlusOne> http://www.raspbian.org/RaspbianQuake3
[4:30] <ShiftPlusOne> ah ok
[4:30] <maicod> I'm reading that one :)
[4:31] <maicod> I don't get it that while I updated with rpi-update and then compiled my own quake3 that it still gives that error of the vchiq instance
[4:31] <maicod> I also rebooted after doing the echo and the usermod things
[4:31] <maicod> root doesnt work either
[4:31] <maicod> I tried under X and under console
[4:33] <maicod> if I cat the /etc/dev/rules.d/10-vchiq-permissions.rules I see the right contents
[4:33] <ShiftPlusOne> I would then try playing around with the source code and ftrace to see what the exact problem is.
[4:34] <maicod> I'm not having that knowledge sorry

[4:35] <maicod> could the quake game run outside X ?

[4:36] <maicod> I really don't know what to do anymore. I did everything I could find online

[4:45] <ShiftPlusOne> from console
[4:45] <maicod> indeed !
[4:45] <maicod> omxplayer is dead too now !
[4:45] <ShiftPlusOne> you're not using dualboot of any kind are you?
[4:46] <maicod> no
[4:46] <ShiftPlusOne> sounds like your firmware is messed up
[4:46] <maicod> indeed omxplayer is giving same error now
[4:46] <ShiftPlusOne> try running rpi-update again
[4:46] <maicod> yeah that sucks !
[4:46] <maicod> ok
[4:46] <ShiftPlusOne> might have gone wrong when github was down
[4:46] <maicod> OK
[4:46] <ShiftPlusOne> I don't know
[4:46] <maicod> hehe
[4:46] <maicod> it didnt complain
[4:46] <maicod> it said everything like the hardfp libraries etc
[4:47] <maicod> its updating
[4:47] <maicod> I apt-get installed libgles*
[4:47] <ShiftPlusOne> then reboot, recompile and try again.
[4:47] <maicod> cause the compiling failed on GLES
[4:48] <maicod> that shouldnt be the problem?
[4:48] <ShiftPlusOne> what was the error?
[4:49] <ShiftPlusOne> It might be, I don't know where raspbian gets the libs from or how up to date they are. rpi-update should get everything
[4:49] <maicod> code/jpeg-6b/../renderer/qgl.h:34:21: fatal error: GLES/gl.h: no such file/directory
[4:49] <maicod> oh it didnt
[4:50] <maicod> getting the libgles stuff helped
[4:50] <ShiftPlusOne> you have /opt/vc/include/GLES/gl.h don't you?
[4:50] <maicod> lemme see
[4:50] <ShiftPlusOne> looks like it's not in your include path

[4:53] <maicod> my split is set by raspi-config to 192/64
[4:53] <maicod> is that OK ?
[4:53] <ShiftPlusOne> I'd uninstall whatever libgles stuff you installed from the repos to make sure you're using a version compatible with the firmware you're running.
[4:53] <maicod> OK
[4:53] <maicod> need to autoremove too?
[4:53] <maicod> or just purge
[4:55] <ShiftPlusOne> idn, whatever the default uninstall thing in debian is.
[4:55] <maicod> purge but it keeps alot of stuff
[4:56] <maicod> I think I'd better revert back to a backup
[4:57] <maicod> not sure what rpi-update messed with
[4:58] <ShiftPlusOne> I think it pulled in the latest firmware and libraries, then you installed older libraries from the raspbian repo and the two are incompatible now, but that's probably a wrong guess.
[4:58] <maicod> maybe but purging them makes me still unsure if I'm in a clean to start situation again then
[4:58] <maicod> so backup restore is safer
[4:58] <maicod> made one before starting with quake stuff

[5:17] <maicod> ShiftPlusOne: the guide says do an distro-upgrade
[5:18] <maicod> does it mean it checks to see if theres a wheezy release from october and then installs that one ?
[5:18] * maicod didnt check if theres a new one already
[5:18] <ShiftPlusOne> I am not a fan of debian, so I can't help there.

[5:20] <maicod> hey doesnt rpi-update require git anymore ?
[5:20] <maicod> the guide of hexxeh doesnt talk about that anymore
[5:20] <atouk> scroll down and put the glasses on

[5:21] <ackthet> what is the best xbmc distro for rpi? and dont say xbian, its a heap of dog poop
[5:21] * ackthet thinks that there is none
[5:22] <ShiftPlusOne> What's best for one person might be the worst for you. I, for one, am a fan of openelec.
[5:22] <ackthet> ShiftPlusOne: which release do you use?
[5:22] <ShiftPlusOne> But I understand that it's not for everyone.
[5:22] <maicod> atouk: theres no line saying apt-get install git-core
[5:23] <maicod> https://github.com/Hexxeh/rpi-update
[5:23] <maicod> there
[5:23] <spadusa> What is recommended for GUI programming for the RaspPi?
[5:24] <ackthet> ShiftPlusOne: i tried the lastest build but it was... laggy to say the least
[5:24] <ackthet> though i didnt oc
[5:25] <atouk> ok, the script tells you to if you don't have it
[5:25] <ShiftPlusOne> ackthet, what are you expectations? it's not a replacement for a home theater, it's more of a "because I can" sort of thing.
[5:25] <atouk> echo "This tool requires you have Git installed, please install it first" echo "In Debian, try: sudo apt-get install git-core" echo "In Arch, try: pacman -S git"
[5:25] <ackthet> ShiftPlusOne: well... there are non-laggy xbmc machines on rpi
[5:26] <ackthet> like xbian... much as i hate to say it
[5:26] <ackthet> ofc it has a ton of other issues
[5:26] <maicod> atouk: ah ok. thats why he removed it from the readme then
[5:26] <ackthet> random crap breaks in each release
[5:26] <atouk> knew i saw it somewhere....
[5:26] <maicod> atouk: echoing is better indeed
[5:26] <maicod> LOL
[5:26] <maicod> whatever :)
[5:26] <ShiftPlusOne> ah ok. I haven't used xbmc in a long time, but openelec performed 'good enough' for me back then. I wouldn't think that it would've gotten laggier since then, but go figure
[5:27] <uncola> well raspbmc does overclocking by default, openelec doesn't
[5:27] <ackthet> yeah <_<
[5:27] * maicod slaps atouk with a large raspberrypi manual :)
[5:27] <ackthet> i didnt really try oc or anything
[5:27] <uncola> you can overclock when using openelec I think you just edit some config file
[5:27] <ShiftPlusOne> ah ok
[5:27] <ackthet> every release of xbian has issues... its almost hilarious
[5:28] * ackthet comes back in 6mo
[5:28] <atouk> a manual should never be bigger than the hardware it describes
[5:28] <maicod> indeed :)
[5:28] <maicod> microfiche :)
[5:29] <ackthet> for example... the remote control app breaks in .8.3

[5:30] <Tachyon`> I'm getting the impression the hf build is a bit dicey with some apps, heh, may go back to armel
[5:30] <maicod> what does Performing self-update
[5:30] <maicod> ARM/GPU split is now defined in /boot/config.txt using the gpu_mem option!
[5:30] <maicod> imply ?
[5:30] <Tachyon`> oh, updates
[5:30] <maicod> I always set it with raspi-config
[5:30] <maicod> is that wrong ?
[5:31] <ackthet> and their site is down :D
[5:33] <maicod> did
[5:33] <maicod> oops
[5:33] <ShiftPlusOne> maicod, before, we had a bunch of different files and we renamed them to get the split we wanted, now there is one file and the split is defined in the config
[5:34] <maicod> ah ok but will the raspi-config do it too?
[5:34] <maicod> it probably edits the same file?
[5:34] <ShiftPlusOne> raspi-config? rpi-update? you kids these days.... back in my day (a few months ago) we didn't use such nonsense. >=/
[5:34] <mkopack> Yeah, it was just switching out the files under the hood for you...
[5:35] <mkopack> Shift: LOL
[5:35] <Tachyon`> no rpi-update on mine, oddly
[5:35] <mkopack> Yeah, we dealt with it all by hand!
[5:35] <maicod> hahah ShiftPlusOne the raspi-update is a configging tool that starts the first time you write an image to the card
[5:35] <maicod> ShiftPlusOne: you are one of the Pi creators?
[5:35] <mkopack> And didn't have 6 months of wiki posts to count on for help :)
[5:35] <maicod> LOL
[5:35] <maicod> don't forget I also started with debian 19-04
[5:36] <maicod> months ago
[5:36] <ShiftPlusOne> lol... me? one of the pi creators? hell no.
[5:36] <mkopack> So did I
[5:36] <maicod> have had alot of trouble with filesystem corruptions so have had alot of restarting to do
[5:36] <maicod> ah :)
[5:36] <maicod> one of the first users then
[5:36] <mkopack> So glad Raspbian got bumped up to "best recommended" status over Debian
[5:36] <Tachyon`> I had that, turned out to be the card, heh
[5:37] <Tachyon`> as someone in here actually suggested at the time
[5:37] <ShiftPlusOne> yeah... now make it arch and we're there.
[5:37] <maicod> Tachyon`: I suspect mine too. I changed cards and it seems better
[5:37] <mkopack> Yeah, I got mine in April? and 2 more in May
[5:37] <maicod> I think mine's from May
[5:37] <Tachyon`> I got a sandisk ultra 16GB card

[5:38] <maicod> one from RS the first one
[5:38] <maicod> one from Farnell
[5:38] <maicod> with a t-shirt ;)
[5:38] <Tachyon`> I just have the one right now
[5:38] <Tachyon`> btu I'll have another as soon as I'm sure it'll be 512MB
[5:39] <maicod> my Pi http://s1152.photobucket.com/albums/p499/maicod/?action=view&current=IMG_3567.jpg
[5:39] * ShaneBotwin is now known as cerjam
[5:40] <Tachyon`> hrm, not taken a pic of mine btu it has a hub and a 1.8" HDD attached with tie wrasp
[5:40] <Tachyon`> I'll try though
[5:40] <maicod> Tachyon`: mine has a hub too (the Ultron 7port one)
[5:40] <maicod> powered one ofc
[5:41] <ShiftPlusOne> spadusa, don't know if you found an answer already (regarding the GUI thing), but it would depend on what you're doing and what you're comfortable with.
[5:42] <maicod> after rpi-update and recompile the triangle demo still runs
[5:42] <maicod> :)
[5:42] <spadusa> I haven't. And I'm comfortable with whatever.
[5:42] <spadusa> I tried compiling Qt5. It failed.
[5:42] <ShiftPlusOne> spadusa, will your program be running under X?

[5:43] <spadusa> ShiftPlusOne: I don't care. I don't really have any requirements.
[5:43] <spadusa> I just want a GUI environment that works.
[5:43] <spadusa> My fallback is a PHP web app.
[5:43] <ShiftPlusOne> spadusa, then you have all the choices.
[5:43] <maicod> the Pi doesnt use flashing keyboard light when kernel panicking huh :)

[5:44] <maicod> what does rpi-update 192 ?
[5:44] <ShiftPlusOne> spadusa, ah right, we've already talked about this. I thought it was someone else asking. And I was talking about all of the traditional choices wxwidgets, qt4, gtk and so on.
[5:44] <maicod> does it only change the mem split?
[5:44] <spadusa> ShiftPlusOne: I don't recall talking about those choices.
[5:44] * yofel (~quassel@ubuntu/member/yofel) Quit (Read error: Operation timed out)
[5:44] <spadusa> I may have been afk.
[5:45] <atouk> it updates the firmware and whatever associated files are needed
[5:45] <maicod> what is the 192 for then?
[5:45] <maicod> ofc I knew rpi-update
[5:45] <maicod> but why the 192 :)
[5:45] <atouk> 192?
[5:45] <ShiftPlusOne> spadusa, nuh, the whole kernel panic thing. And I forgot you had settled on a web interface.
[5:45] <maicod> sudo apt-get update
[5:45] <maicod> sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
[5:45] <maicod> sudo rpi-update 192
[5:46] <maicod> see ?
[5:46] <spadusa> Ok. So qt4. I found this at the bottom of the page about qt4: There are inherent graphical constraints in the Qt 4 architecture that make spending any significant time in adapting Qt 4 to the Raspberry Pi seem a little pointless. We merrily welcome anyone else?s passion/contributions towards this end.
[5:46] <atouk> ah that's to downgrade ato a specific version

[5:46] <maicod> atouk: ah I see
[5:47] <atouk> p runs apache/php/mysql pretty well for what it is
[5:47] <maicod> so its important I guess
[5:48] <ShiftPlusOne> Does anyone here have experience with wxwidgets or qt4 on pi? Do they work fine?
[5:48] <spadusa> So there isn't 1 GUI framework that's the who's who in Linux GUI development?
[5:48] <__machine> anyone using RPi as their primary machine for OpenELEC?
[5:49] <des2> 192 is the memort split

[6:06] <Tachyon`> as the name of the language Deutch and Dutch is confusing

[6:08] <maicod> holland is part of netherlands only :)
[6:08] <maicod> 2 provinces out of 13
[6:08] <Tachyon`> ah, that I didn't realise
[6:08] <ShiftPlusOne> it's not a "totally different language" they are very close in the indo-european language group.
[6:08] <maicod> no prob
[6:08] <Tachyon`> I assumed holland was just the english name -.-
[6:08] <maicod> ShiftPlusOne: well theres words enough that are not having a german counterpart (lookalike)
[6:08] <Tachyon`> ah well, at least I've called no canadians americans lately
[6:08] <maicod> Tachyon`: thats fine don't worry
[6:09] <Tachyon`> although I'm sure my mouth could take more feet in a pinch -.o
[6:09] <maicod> Tachyon`: holland is quite normal for english speakers
[6:09] <maicod> so I don't blame you
[6:09] <maicod> the word holland comes from noord-holland and zuid-holland (2 north sea bordering provinces)

[6:11] <maicod> tachyon: thats the province called Zeeland
[6:11] <maicod> its south of zuid-holland
[6:11] <Tachyon`> think this is the first time I've actually peered at a map of the netherlands
[6:11] <maicod> its also bordering the norhtern sea
[6:11] <ShiftPlusOne> maicod, ah, I might have been a bit quick to make that statement. English is about as far away from German as Dutch is.
[6:12] <maicod> ShiftPlusOne: its ok. ofcourse german/dutch/scandinavian are all coming from the same root
[6:12] <maicod> germanics
[6:12] <ShiftPlusOne> yeah, they are all all west germanic languages
[6:12] <maicod> ductch has english influences
[6:12] <maicod> yea
[6:12] <maicod> I think the scandinavian languages are north-germanic ones
[6:13] <maicod> we're a tiny country with too many ppl per square inch :)
[6:13] <maicod> 16 million
[6:13] <atouk> almose every language has english influences. except for manuals for chinese products. it's hard to find any recognisable english in them at all
[6:13] <maicod> eheh LOL
[6:13] <maicod> atouk: your name sounds a bit 'french' is it ?
[6:14] <maicod> the 'ou'
[6:14] <AC`97> fries??
[6:14] <atouk> no movie reference
[6:14] * AC`97 goes om nom nom
[6:14] <maicod> ah OK :)
[6:14] <atouk> "Caveman"
[6:14] <atouk> started using it as a gaming name ages ago and it stuck
[6:14] <maicod> it doesnt ring me any bells ;)
[6:14] * AC`97 rings a cowbell
[6:14] <maicod> OK I was called MAD in the old days

[6:15] <maicod> in the old days there were 3 letter names huh
[6:15] <maicod> in games
[6:15] * maicod heard a cowbell :)
[6:15] <maicod> AC`97: what about frysian ?

[6:18] <maicod> ah oops didnt see
[6:18] <maicod> do I need some ROM?

[6:18] <Tachyon`> well, yes
[6:19] <Tachyon`> the rom of the game you want to play
[6:19] <Tachyon`> the machine had no rom of its own
[6:19] <maicod> oh only that one
[6:19] <maicod> ah OK
[6:19] <maicod> mame HAS
[6:19] <maicod> huh
[6:19] <Tachyon`> oh, maybe I'm wrong then
[6:19] <Tachyon`> I'll check..
[6:19] <maicod> dunno :)
[6:19] <maicod> wanna have the demon attack ?
[6:19] <maicod> I got it here
[6:19] <maicod> I can dcc it :)
[6:19] <Tachyon`> I'm not wrong, the only ROM on the 2600 is in the game
[6:20] <maicod> cool
[6:20] <maicod> 4K :)
[6:20] <Tachyon`> ah, I have a full set of 2600 games, just have yet to play many of them
[6:20] <maicod> OK me too :)
[6:20] <Tachyon`> some could go larger than that using bank switching
[6:20] <Tachyon`> in relaity it should have allowed up to 64K but there was some skimping on the cart connetor
[6:20] <Tachyon`> so there wasn't sufficient room for a full set of address lines
[6:20] <maicod> DEMONATK.BIN
[6:20] <maicod> 4K :)
[6:21] <Tachyon`> christ, it's after 5am
[6:21] <Tachyon`> damn the americans and their politics
[6:21] <maicod> almost daylight :)
[6:21] <maicod> oh hehe
[6:21] <Tachyon`> they should schedule their debates for lunchtime
[6:21] <maicod> I didnt watch it
[6:21] <Tachyon`> then I'd be able to see them at a civilised hour
[6:21] <maicod> who won?
[6:21] <Tachyon`> obama
[6:21] <maicod> really?
[6:21] <maicod> cool :)
[6:21] <Tachyon`> mitt lied and revised history and so on
[6:21] <Tachyon`> as usual, lol
[6:22] <maicod> oh hehe
[6:22] <Tachyon`> still, for a republican that's pretty much mandatory
[6:22] <maicod> but also obama isnt so ehm democratic. he still likes big army etc
[6:22] <Tachyon`> yes, I know he's the lesser of two evils
[6:22] <maicod> indeed
[6:22] <Tachyon`> but that's usually the choice we're left with
[6:22] <Tachyon`> it's the same here
[6:22] <Tachyon`> tories, labour, lib dems all fighting for the right of centre ground
[6:23] <maicod> someone said he isnt the likeable guy he looks like. he is hard to 'reach'
[6:23] <maicod> he isnt the 'fellow'
[6:23] <Tachyon`> who?
[6:23] <maicod> obama
[6:23] <maicod> we have a word called afstandelijl
[6:23] <Tachyon`> when americans say things like that it's often a euphemism for "not white"
[6:23] <Tachyon`> lol
[6:23] <maicod> afstandelijk
[6:23] <maicod> lemme convert it
[6:24] <maicod> distant
[6:25] <Tachyon`> ahh, right
[6:25] <maicod> Tachyon`: ofcourse that person on tv (forgot who) can have his own agenda by saying that
[6:25] <maicod> he just said obama rapidly became a distant person when he left his former chicago
[6:25] <ShiftPlusOne> who cares how 'likable' a politician is? I'd love to see one who kept promises. Maybe one day.
[6:25] <maicod> yeah
[6:25] <Tachyon`> I liked Tony Benn
[6:26] <Tachyon`> but he retired long ago
[6:26] <AC`97> lots of distance = distant
[6:26] <maicod> doesnt sound familiar
[6:26] <Tachyon`> I think he was the last honest politician in the UK
[6:26] <maicod> oh UK ?
[6:26] <Tachyon`> aye
[6:26] <AC`97> what/where is UK ??
[6:26] <maicod> I thought you meant US politicians :)
[6:26] <Tachyon`> why am I watching american politics you wonder
[6:26] <atouk> nigel ferange (sp?)
[6:26] <maicod> Tachyon`: hehe well we do that too in NL
[6:26] <AC`97> farage
[6:26] <Tachyon`> I'm not responsibel for nigel farage, he doesn't speak for me
[6:27] <Tachyon`> nor does nick griffin
[6:27] <Tachyon`> aye, like it or not, what happens in america affecst the rest of the world so I keep an eye on it
[6:27] <maicod> yeah but I don't wanna sit at 3AM for it
[6:27] <Tachyon`> no, nor did I
[6:27] <Tachyon`> but there we go, lol
[6:28] <maicod> ehee
[6:28] <Tachyon`> I just hope obama gets control of both houses when he wins
[6:28] <maicod> 2AM in UK it was though :P
[6:28] <Tachyon`> 2am to 3:30
[6:28] <Tachyon`> so I was indeed watching at 3am
[6:28] <atouk> why do all the 95% great politicians have that 5% crackpot that puts them on the fringe, but the 95% crackpot politicians always win elections?
[6:28] <maicod> we're close to UK and yet we have different times :)

[6:28] <maicod> the time border must lie somewhere huh
[6:28] <Tachyon`> everyone should just switch to UTC and be done IMHO
[6:28] <Tachyon`> well, there's 24 of them I think
[6:29] <Tachyon`> (ignoring the half zones)
[6:29] <maicod> UTC =dutch time -2 ?
[6:29] <Tachyon`> it's a result of it not being turtles all the way down
[6:29] <Tachyon`> UTC is just GMT
[6:29] <maicod> GMT+1 is summetime huh?
[6:29] <Tachyon`> aye
[6:29] <Tachyon`> for a few more days
[6:29] <Tachyon`> changes on sunday
[6:29] <maicod> so its now ehm here GMT+2
[6:29] * halfhalo (halfhalo@nasadmin/webteam/halfhalo) Quit (Excess Flood)
[6:29] <maicod> so that would mean -2 for us :)
[6:29] <maicod> if we convert to UTC
[6:30] <Tachyon`> aye, but it is a bit odd, in the 21st century having time zones
[6:30] <Tachyon`> it's the same time everywhere really
[6:30] <maicod> well the sun still goes from east to west

[6:32] * maicod fears the Drones
[6:32] <Tachyon`> I'm not fond of drones
[6:32] <maicod> france has them too now
[6:32] <maicod> they're sending them to Mali
[6:32] <Tachyon`> they always remind me of the Stargate SG-1 episode The other sidce
[6:32] <Tachyon`> side*
[6:32] <maicod> yea
[6:33] <maicod> in 5 years time everyone has them
[6:33] <Tachyon`> the taliban downed one just by interfering with the signal
[6:33] <Tachyon`> they're clearly not very intelligent
[6:33] <maicod> well they probably got atari2600 braisn
[6:34] <Tachyon`> I shold design them a better one using a raspberry pi
[6:34] <Tachyon`> which in classic military tradition I would of course charge them $2500 for

[6:34] <maicod> give it to me :)
[6:34] <maicod> hehe
[6:35] <maicod> rs232 ?
[6:35] <Tachyon`> someone else already wants it, he's going to designsomethign to feed it teltext frames
[6:35] <maicod> its ok
[6:35] <Tachyon`> no, I think it connected to the 1MHz bu
[6:35] <Tachyon`> s
[6:35] <maicod> oh
[6:35] <maicod> I got one with RS232 somewhere
[6:35] <AC`97> public transportation??
[6:35] <maicod> it was for the Amiga
[6:35] <Tachyon`> http://www.pokenet.co.uk/misc/images.hardware.old/beebtext.jpg
[6:35] <maicod> did you see ours right now ?
[6:35] <Tachyon`> you can see the decoder to the right of the BBC in that rather poor pic
[6:35] <maicod> the link
[6:36] <Tachyon`> yes, that works quite nicely
[6:36] <maicod> oh selfbuilt ?
[6:36] <maicod> yeah its kinda popular under young ppl too here
[6:36] <maicod> we still have analog cable too
[6:36] <AC`97> lolwot
[6:36] <maicod> not analog over the air
[6:36] <maicod> analogue
[6:36] <AC`97> just analog will do :P
[6:37] <maicod> we have digital (most ppl) over the cable
[6:37] <Tachyon`> I didn't build that interface, just bought it
[6:37] <maicod> ah OK
[6:37] <Tachyon`> althoguh I did upgrade that BBC to 176K of RAM
[6:37] <Tachyon`> (from 32K)
[6:37] <maicod> heh
[6:37] <Tachyon`> http://www.pokenet.co.uk/misc/images.hardware.old/freebeebupgraded176k-2.jpg
[6:37] <maicod> so there is no analog cable signal either ?

[6:38] <Tachyon`> ah, okay
[6:38] <maicod> I meant the teletext decoder :)
[6:38] <maicod> sorry
[6:38] <AC`97> that power supply looks delicious

[6:39] <AC`97> om nom nom
[6:39] <Tachyon`> I'm not sure why that was temporarily removed -.o
[6:39] <Tachyon`> no, the decoder was bought as is

[6:40] <Tachyon`> and ahh
[6:40] <maicod> is it ?
[6:40] <maicod> oops
[6:40] <Tachyon`> my 1200 isn't setup atm
[6:40] <maicod> I though rs232 is parallel
[6:40] <Tachyon`> as the A3020 is in its place
[6:41] <Tachyon`> no, rs232 serial, one bit at a time
[6:41] <maicod> ok ;)
[6:41] * maicod gets forgetful:P
[6:42] <maicod> what was the name of the paralel ?
[6:42] <Tachyon`> parallel although it was sometimes called centronics
[6:42] <maicod> centronics for printers but for generic ?
[6:42] <maicod> yeah only that weird connector

[6:43] <Tachyon`> they're so hard to find
[6:43] <maicod> hehe
[6:43] <Tachyon`> need another -.-
[6:43] <maicod> mine is not for grabs :)
[6:43] <Tachyon`> I'd like a commodore branded one for the 1200
[6:43] <Tachyon`> but they're not so easy to find
[6:44] <maicod> could it be the 1438 ?
[6:44] <maicod> or such
[6:44] <maicod> the one I got
[6:44] <maicod> I forgot the nr
[6:44] <Tachyon`> I'm not sure of the number
[6:44] <Tachyon`> interestingly, there are a number of LCD TVs that can handle 15KHz and 30Khz modes on the VGA input

[6:45] <maicod> Tachyon`: to have such a low refresh it needs to have higher phosphoric capabilities ?
[6:45] <Tachyon`> that one in particular although good look finding one
[6:45] <maicod> it says: e're sorry. The Web address you entered is not a functioning page on our site
[6:46] <Tachyon`> http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B002M1FH2Q
[6:46] <Tachyon`> sorry, trimmed the wrong bit from the url
[6:46] <maicod> heh
[6:46] <Tachyon`> but that particular model is known to do 15KHz modes and produce a nice picture
[6:46] <maicod> you'd be left with huge black sideborders huh
[6:46] <Tachyon`> that is unfortunate, yes
[6:46] <maicod> :(
[6:47] <Tachyon`> although the amiga in NTSC mode just about fits with teh zoom option
[6:47] <maicod> ah OK
[6:47] <__machine> anyone seen a sub-12" monitor with hdmi and dvi inputs, or hdmi/dvi and vga inputs?
[6:47] <Tachyon`> HDMI and DVI are essentially the same
[6:47] <Tachyon`> do you really need both?
[6:47] <maicod> wow I got demonattack running !!!!!!!!
[6:48] <maicod> it was just like this: stella demonatk.bin :)
[6:48] <__machine> Tachyon`: i need two inputs... either both digital (preferable) or one digital and one analogue (vga)
[6:48] <Tachyon`> what I wish someone would do is make a DVI to Laptop display adapter
[6:49] <maicod> tachyon: can you install stella and a 2600 game
[6:49] <maicod> its cool!
[6:49] <Tachyon`> I can but the pi isn't on atm

[6:51] <Tachyon`> yes
[6:51] <maicod> oh
[6:51] <Tachyon`> that's what I'm running mainly
[6:51] <maicod> btw I didnt run X
[6:51] <Tachyon`> the hf variant
[6:51] <Tachyon`> ahh
[6:51] <Tachyon`> SDL stuff generally works
[6:51] <maicod> it works from console :)
[6:51] <Tachyon`> yes, because it's using SDL afaik
[6:51] <Tachyon`> although I'm not a fan of the console SDL postage stamp effect
[6:51] <maicod> I don't know all these stuff like you naming (SDL)
[6:52] <Tachyon`> SDL is the graphics library that things that work at the console in addition to X tend to use
[6:52] <maicod> burning-in ?
[6:52] <maicod> ah OK
[6:52] <Tachyon`> well, graphics/audio/input actually, it's fairly complete
[6:52] <maicod> I had to kill demon attack cause I could turn down the volume ;)
[6:52] <Tachyon`> oops
[6:52] <maicod> still someone sleeping here ;)
[6:52] <maicod> it was very loud LOL
[6:53] <Tachyon`> I should be asleep now but if i sleep I'll likely miss a delivery of a mifi

[6:53] <Tachyon`> aye -.o
[6:53] <maicod> :(
[6:53] <maicod> can take ages

[6:53] <maicod> mifi is cool
[6:54] <maicod> 3G acces point huh
[6:54] <Tachyon`> aye, it claims it can do over 20mbit due to HSDPA+
[6:54] <Tachyon`> my phone works as one but at rather more limited speeds
[6:54] * maicod is oldfashioned and has no smartphone yet ;)
[6:54] <Tachyon`> plus I don't want phone/net on same sim, that's just asking for trouble
[6:54] <maicod> I got a Tablet though
[6:54] <maicod> my phone is pre-smartphone era :)
[6:55] <Tachyon`> I have a wildfire S phone and a 7" phone/tablet running android 2.2
[6:55] <maicod> it is from 2006 or 2007 or so
[6:55] <Tachyon`> which I got from maplins for ?120 recently
[6:55] <Tachyon`> as they had them on offer (and mayindeed still have them)
[6:55] <maicod> my Tablet is a Transformer TF101
[6:55] <maicod> 10.1
[6:55] <Tachyon`> http://www.maplin.co.uk/viewpad-7-touch-tablet-3g-and-gps-511340
[6:55] <Tachyon`> ah yes, still there
[6:55] <Tachyon`> ah, I looked at the transformer but it was fairly expensive
[6:55] <maicod> it was 360 euros
[6:55] <maicod> 32GB
[6:56] <maicod> februari 2012
[6:56] <maicod> don't know the prices now
[6:56] <maicod> what city are you from?
[6:56] <Tachyon`> York
[6:56] <Tachyon`> "Battery: 3240mAH, Standby 600hrs, Talk time GSM 26hrs, WCDMA 96hrs, Music 36hrs, Video 5hrs"
[6:57] <Tachyon`> and if you believe those specs I have a bridge for sale
[6:57] <maicod> ah I thought I'd know its location then but I don't
[6:57] <maicod> yeah I know that
[6:57] <Tachyon`> it's about 200 miles north of london
[6:57] <maicod> the battery time is always shorter
[6:57] <maicod> wow thats quite high
[6:57] <maicod> near Manchester ?
[6:57] <Tachyon`> except on pandora
[6:57] <Tachyon`> er, relatively near I suppose
[6:58] <maicod> OK
[6:58] <Tachyon`> Leeds is the nearest big(ger) city
[6:58] <maicod> ah
[6:58] <Tachyon`> although York isn't that small, 170,000 people etc,.
[6:58] <maicod> York isnt small either I guess
[6:58] <maicod> the name sounds familiar
[6:58] <maicod> ah you said it already
[6:58] <maicod> I live in a city you probably don't know
[6:58] <maicod> Purmerend
[6:58] <maicod> north-east of Amsterdam
[6:58] <maicod> 80.000 ppl
[6:59] <maicod> google it if u like
[6:59] <Tachyon`> ahh, I didn't know that one, most people know York for the cathedral, we have the largest gothic cathedral in western europe
[6:59] <maicod> ah I like historic things on cities .they make them have more 'name'

[7:00] <maicod> some cities here are made onto sea acclaimed lands and have historic features
[7:00] <Tachyon`> part of the inside
[7:00] <maicod> looks cool
[7:00] <maicod> i've been to a city called Winchester once
[7:00] <Tachyon`> it's about 1000 years old
[7:00] <Tachyon`> no idea how they built it
[7:00] <maicod> its also old it used to be the capital of england
[7:00] <maicod> long ago
[7:01] <Tachyon`> so did York
[7:01] <Tachyon`> lol
[7:01] <maicod> winchester cathedral
[7:01] <maicod> aha
[7:01] <maicod> I also like Bath
[7:01] <maicod> the roman baths
[7:01] <maicod> you've been there ?
[7:03] <Tachyon`> I don't think so, don't really go down south so much

[7:03] <maicod> raspi-config got cripppled
[7:03] <Tachyon`> erm
[7:03] <Tachyon`> ah
[7:03] <Tachyon`> because it's set in config.txt now I suppose
[7:03] <maicod> its memory split option is not working anymore
[7:03] <Tachyon`> or so people say, I've not seen any updates on mine
[7:04] <maicod> yea but they shouldve removed it of raspi-config huh
[7:04] <Tachyon`> do I need to edit the sources.list
[7:04] <Tachyon`> and do a dist-upgrade?
[7:04] <maicod> I am honest in saying I don't know :)
[7:04] <Tachyon`> but did you not just do it?
[7:05] <maicod> I only did sudo apt-get update
[7:05] <maicod> sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
[7:05] <maicod> sudo rpi-update 192
[7:05] <Tachyon`> hrm
[7:05] <maicod> before I always reverted back to a new image off the raspberrypi site
[7:05] <Tachyon`> there's no rpi-update on mine but I'll try
[7:05] <maicod> rpi-update needs to be installed
[7:05] <maicod> holdon
[7:05] <Tachyon`> ah, I backup frequently, to the hard disk, that's what it's there for
[7:06] <maicod> sometimes getting a new image from the site is cool but it means all the work you've done on the previous installation is lost
[7:06] <maicod> so maybe the dist-upgrade does the same >?
[7:06] <maicod> no idea though :)

[7:08] <Tachyon`> when I say rescue syetm
[7:09] <Tachyon`> I mean I have a basic debian system on the hard disk, just change the cmdline.txt to boot into it
[7:09] <maicod> ah OK :)
[7:09] <Tachyon`> as it's a Bad Idea to backup a system you're actually running
[7:09] <Tachyon`> files may change during etc.
[7:09] <maicod> just another one using the same /boot on the sdcard huh
[7:09] <maicod> I know so I do it on my laptop
[7:09] <Tachyon`> ah, okay, lol
[7:09] <maicod> I take out the card and put it in the cardreader
[7:09] <Tachyon`> yes, I see how it's easily done that way, lol

[7:14] <maicod> his wife is sibil ?
[7:14] <Tachyon`> aye
[7:14] <maicod> hehe
[7:15] <Tachyon`> I use her as an example as to why I have no intention of marrying
[7:15] <Tachyon`> and thatcher, she's a good negative example too, milk snatching bint
[7:15] <lunra> So does anyone know how the new start.elf file works, or have a copy of the old 448-split one? I tried looking for a readme but couldn't find a relevant one
[7:15] <maicod> LOL yeah the 'strong wife' stuff
[7:15] <maicod> some wifes are like that but not all ofcourse
[7:15] <Tachyon`> well, I just don't cohabit well, lol
[7:15] <maicod> but indeed some can be very bitchy :)
[7:15] <Tachyon`> prefer living on my own -.o
[7:15] <maicod> thats ok

[7:16] <maicod> I know what you mean
[7:16] <Tachyon`> ((or anyone else for that matter, been there, done that, not doing it again))
[7:16] <maicod> its how people are unfortunately
[7:17] <maicod> but your fortunate to live in a larger city cause smalltowns can be much worse
[7:18] <maicod> these people are even more paying attention to unmarried ppl

[7:18] <Tachyon`> heard some horrors from america
[7:18] <maicod> yeah states like Alabama
[7:18] <Tachyon`> people being shunned by entire towns for not having an imaginary friend etc.
[7:19] <maicod> or Texas
[7:19] <maicod> rediculous behaviour especially for this century
[7:19] <maicod> ppl need to grow up

[7:20] <maicod> yeah OK
[7:20] <Tachyon`> it's shocking, I dunno what they think they're filling their cars with
[7:20] <maicod> so what line is there to change for the new split section?
[7:21] <Tachyon`> oh, I don't know, I need to update
[7:21] <maicod> ok I hate it why did they remove the .elf files
[7:21] <maicod> why not leave the raspi-config intact
[7:21] <AC`97> Tachyon`: how many people think the earth is OVER 9000!!!1! ?
[7:21] <recantha> Can't you still change the split through raspi-config?
[7:21] <ShiftPlusOne> Tachyon`, clearly it IS 10,000 year old. If we come from monkeys, how come there are still monkeys? Checkmate! </troll>
[7:21] <Tachyon`> oh dear
[7:22] <Tachyon`> you've seen the checkmate atheist site then, lol
[7:22] <lunra> tl;dr you need a gpu_mem= in your config.txt to change it
[7:22] <ShiftPlusOne> I haven't, but I do enjoy listening to creationists talk.
[7:22] <ShiftPlusOne> at least trying to follow the reasoning
[7:22] <Tachyon`> I just bought a universe from nothing by lawrence krauss
[7:23] <ShiftPlusOne> the book, yeah?
[7:23] <Tachyon`> aye, need to read it, lol, got it for kindle yesterday
[7:23] <ShiftPlusOne> I only watched the lecture
[7:23] <Tachyon`> ah, there's a lecture
[7:23] <ShiftPlusOne> Yup
[7:23] <maicod> lunra: thanks
[7:23] <Tachyon`> I'm hoping it'll explain what Stephen Hawking was talking about a few years ago
[7:24] <maicod> lunra: they shouldve edited out the memsplit option of raspi-config ;)
[7:24] <maicod> lunra: the /boot/*.elf files have gone :)
[7:24] <ShiftPlusOne> Tachyon`, the lecture https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ImvlS8PLIo (or talk rather)
[7:24] <recantha> Oh dear... One would've thought they'd have learnt the lessons of Facebook... people do NOT like change, even on the RPi.
[7:25] <maicod> I added gpu_mem=16 to test

[7:29] <des2> Sell it for $30 buy a new $35 one.
[7:29] <maicod> will it sell for $30/
[7:29] <maicod> ?
[7:29] <maicod> is it still that scarce :)

[7:32] <Tachyon`> ah, they're finally selling the model A
[7:32] <Tachyon`> nice
[7:32] <des2> Are they making A's ?
[7:32] <maicod> well ehm
[7:32] <maicod> I mean the ones with ethernet
[7:32] <recantha> I think they've missed the boat with the model As.
[7:32] <maicod> thats not A its B huh
[7:32] <Tachyon`> aye
[7:32] <recantha> Mind you, I think they've missed the boat with the camera and Android too, but that's just me.
[7:32] <Tachyon`> the A is the mythical version with 1 USB port
[7:32] <maicod> they should not ever make the A's I think
[7:32] <Tachyon`> android is not a suitable computer OS
[7:32] <maicod> have they been made ?
[7:33] <des2> Well there's less reason for the A now that it has 256 MB
[7:33] <maicod> android is just playstuff
[7:33] <Tachyon`> android is for toys, linux is for computers
[7:33] <maicod> yea
[7:33] <maicod> agree
[7:33] <des2> But it will still sell if people can buy it for $25.
[7:33] <maicod> someone I spoke too bought a cortex A8 computer for 56 USD on DX.co
[7:33] <Tachyon`> I'm glad nobody decided to stick us with unity on the pi
[7:33] <maicod> com
[7:33] <Tachyon`> that would have been evil
[7:33] <maicod> unity is ?
[7:33] <Tachyon`> ah, my pandora uses the A8
[7:33] <recantha> If the price of touchscreens come down, I think Android has a future on the Pi. It's just the on-top cost that's holding anything back at the mo.
[7:33] <Tachyon`> the new ubuntu window manager
[7:34] <Tachyon`> or rather lack of window manager
[7:34] <maicod> oh that ugly sidebar
[7:34] <recantha> What are you talking about? That sidebar's lovely :p
[7:34] <Tachyon`> yes, that, it also seems to force all apps to a maximised window
[7:34] <maicod> I'm used to it :)
[7:34] <asaru> the unity desktop as they call it
[7:34] <asaru> its crap
[7:34] <Tachyon`> it's like 1985 again
[7:34] <Tachyon`> one thing at a time
[7:34] <des2> Unless it's for the Android Store apps (whatever they're calling it) why would you want Android ?
[7:34] <maicod> Tachyon`: indeed. I need a 'no stick' hack
[7:35] <maicod> is there one?
[7:35] <Tachyon`> I have no idea, I avoid unity
[7:35] <maicod> to disable topbar docking
[7:35] <Tachyon`> the best fix for unity is sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop
[7:35] <maicod> ehehe
[7:36] <maicod> how do I list my current memory split ?
[7:36] <maicod> I mean some /proc command
[7:36] <maicod> or such
[7:36] <maicod> cat /proc/blabla
[7:36] <Tachyon`> cat /proc/meminfo will tell you
[7:36] <Tachyon`> but so will free
[7:36] <maicod> thanks :)
[7:36] <maicod> ah free :)
[7:37] <maicod> Mem: 237868
[7:37] <maicod> means 16 MB left for GPU huh
[7:37] <maicod> then the gpu_mem works :)
[7:37] <maicod> I tried to change it in config.txt
[7:37] <maicod> I mean add it
[7:38] <Tachyon`> ahh
[7:38] <maicod> just seeing what it does
[7:38] <Tachyon`> 16 isn't enoguh for omxplayer to work in the main
[7:38] <Tachyon`> I doubt anything else would be affected
[7:38] <Tachyon`> 192/64 is optimal for using omxplayer to play HD content
[7:38] <maicod> btw the rpi-update 192 is not for changing the split as someone said but is for reverting back to some version of firmware (also someone else said that and he was right)
[7:39] <Tachyon`> aye, I noticed it mentioned that on the link
[7:39] <maicod> Tachyon`: I wanst planning on keeping 16/234
[7:39] <maicod> just playing

[7:42] <Tachyon`> oh this is lovely
[7:42] <des2> heh. ok.
[7:42] <Tachyon`> this update
[7:42] <Tachyon`> I'll have to take a picture
[7:42] <maicod> which update ?
[7:42] <maicod> rpi-?
[7:42] <lunra> I set arm_freq=1100 without any overvolt and it hasn't crashed yet -- uptime is 6 minutes
[7:42] <maicod> cool lunra
[7:42] <maicod> and temps?
[7:42] <lunra> Not sure if it actually supports clocks that high
[7:42] <recantha> Is the 512mb still okay for overvolt?
[7:43] <lunra> I'm not going to overvolt because I don't want to void my warrenty
[7:43] <lunra> Sec and I'll find out how to get the temperature
[7:43] <recantha> WIth the 256mb, a certain amount of overvolt was still covered in the warranty.
[7:43] <maicod> I thought it was allowed now?
[7:43] <recantha> Just wondered if the 512 was still allowing it.
[7:43] <maicod> oh so not everything is allowed ?
[7:43] <des2> You are overvolting the cpu
[7:43] <maicod> when does the warranty bit go bust
[7:44] <lunra> Ah
[7:44] <des2> The only difference is the 512 has more ram on chip than 256.
[7:44] <maicod> Tachyon`: what is a neat gpu setting for quake ?
[7:44] <lunra> Pretty sure you're still allowed to before that certain point, because the CPU hasn't changed

[7:45] <recantha> http://www.raspberrypi.org/archives/2008
[7:45] <recantha> talks about the turbo mode with overvolting.
[7:45] <lunra> I guess so. I'm running Arch so I haven't played with that at all
[7:45] <maicod> ok
[7:45] <Tachyon`> http://www.pokenet.co.uk/misc/images.hardware.new/thepiupdated.jpg
[7:45] <maicod> me neither yet
[7:45] <Tachyon`> spot the update problem
[7:45] <maicod> ouch
[7:45] <maicod> it crashed
[7:46] <recantha> @maicod Perfect
[7:46] <maicod> tachyon: I see kernel error :)
[7:46] <Tachyon`> yes, I see that too
[7:46] <Tachyon`> lol
[7:46] <maicod> heheeh
[7:46] <recantha> It says on the Foundation site you can go up to 6 overvolt.
[7:46] <recantha> Whatever the '6' is.
[7:46] <maicod> oh got no ideas don't ask me :)
[7:47] <Tachyon`> it's an arbitrary scale
[7:47] <Tachyon`> doesn't mean anything
[7:47] <Tachyon`> just bigger is more
[7:47] <maicod> recantha: playing old 80s gamecomputers games on an emulator on the Pi is cool. I just did it :)
[7:47] <lunra> I suppose I should ramp up the CPU before even slightly suggesting I can 'successfully overclock'
[7:47] <Tachyon`> there's a nice fuse spectrum emulator
[7:47] <lunra> [root@Hina ~]# vcgencmd measure_temp
[7:47] <lunra> temp=38.5'C
[7:47] <des2> I want to go to 11
[7:47] <maicod> lunra: and its topping to 100% cpu?
[7:48] <maicod> 38 sounds low
[7:48] <Tachyon`> well, it worked the second time
[7:48] <Tachyon`> what the hell
[7:48] <lunra> I'm about to write a program to max it out
[7:48] <maicod> mine is often 50 without overclock
[7:48] <Tachyon`> I didn't change anything
[7:48] <maicod> OK
[7:48] <des2> I think I paid less for my used Atari 2600.

[7:50] <maicod> no apt-get
[7:51] <lunra> pacman -S clang llvm ;)
[7:51] <maicod> LOL
[7:51] <des2> You have to play pacman on arch

[7:53] <Tachyon`> I'm not sure, I'd expect so
[7:53] <Tachyon`> but I've not tried any 3D games as yet
[7:53] <maicod> ok :)
[7:53] <Tachyon`> well, except armagetronad which segfaulted at start
[7:53] <maicod> it didnt want to swap eh :P
[7:53] <Tachyon`> there is no swap atm
[7:53] <maicod> it needed realmem
[7:54] <Tachyon`> but the memory was nowhere near used
[7:54] <maicod> oh
[7:54] <Tachyon`> it's probably choking on teh lack of real opengl
[7:54] <maicod> he
[7:54] <maicod> heh
[7:54] <Tachyon`> I was unable to port it to the pandora unfortuantely
[7:54] <Tachyon`> due to the opengl and my not knowing how to adapt it to GLES
[7:55] <Tachyon`> although given this machine also runs GLES perhaps someone will port it, lol
[7:55] <maicod> you are talking chinese now :)
[7:55] <maicod> to me ;)
[7:56] <Tachyon`> fairly different 3D libaries, OpenGL is the standard, OpenGL ES is what appears on embedded systems (hence the name I suppose) and is what the pi has, 2.0 I think
[7:57] <Tachyon`> well, libraries and hardware

[7:57] <maicod> ah thats where GLES comes from
[7:57] <Tachyon`> the libraries are what we see obviously but it's the ahrdwre that's actually quite differnet, even GL ES 1.1 and 2.0 are fairly different
[7:57] <maicod> GL ES
[7:57] <maicod> so does the GLES talk with the Pi's GPU ?

[7:57] <Tachyon`> well, the GPU handles that
[7:58] <maicod> but what directs it to the GPU?
[7:58] <Tachyon`> ah, you said GPU
[7:58] <Tachyon`> I'm so tired I'm misreading simple words
[7:58] <maicod> yea hehe
[7:58] <maicod> what is this vchiq ?
[7:58] <Tachyon`> well, you do, and the library
[7:59] <Tachyon`> I don't even know how GL works at a high level, don't ask me how it is internally
[7:59] <maicod> its code in the language the GPU talks ? :)

[8:00] <Tachyon`> the maths involved in 3D scares me, lol
[8:00] <maicod> the Pi has 2 dirs one called GLES and one GLES2
[8:00] <maicod> hehe
[8:00] <Tachyon`> oh, hrm
[8:00] <Tachyon`> perhaps it also supports 1.1 and 2.0 then
[8:00] <kiddy> hi guys, is smsc95xx.turbo_mode=Y the correct way to enable OC ?
[8:00] <Tachyon`> you can configure that with raspi-config
[8:01] * freeAgent (freeAgent@ Quit (Ping timeout: 246 seconds)
[8:01] <maicod> ehm just run raspi-config and choose a o/c setting?
[8:01] <kiddy> i m using arch linux arm, no raspi-config ?
[8:01] <Tachyon`> oh okay
[8:01] <maicod> oh hehe
[8:01] <lunra> Successfully installed gcc and clang without a crash, that's gotta count for something
[8:01] <Tachyon`> not sure how it's done in arch, sorry -.-
[8:01] <maicod> lunra: sounds its holding
[8:01] <maicod> lunra: temps ?
[8:01] <kiddy> cat /proc/cpuinfo doesn't show OC clock, does it?
[8:01] <spadusa> Anyone know what the solution for overscan on a Fedora installation is?
[8:01] <Tachyon`> no but something else does, in /sys I think
[8:01] <maicod> vgcencmd
[8:01] <maicod> >
[8:01] <maicod> ?
[8:02] <Tachyon`> I can't remember the exact name/path though
[8:02] <spadusa> Tried adding the overscan line in /boot/config.txt
[8:02] <spadusa> Didn't work.
[8:02] <Tachyon`> it's on by default
[8:02] <maicod> http://www.elinux.org/RPI_vcgencmd_usage is handy
[8:02] <Tachyon`> you need the option only to turn it off
[8:02] <maicod> installed by rpi-update huh guys ?
[8:03] <spadusa> Tachyon`: I think I need to turn it off. The screen is offset to the left and down quite a bit.

[8:03] <Tachyon`> yes
[8:03] <Tachyon`> you need overscan=0 I think
[8:03] <Tachyon`> let me check the file here
[8:03] <maicod> kiddy: I don't know if it works in arch
[8:04] <kiddy> maicod: the command is there, but library's missing
[8:04] <spadusa> I added disable_overscan=1
[8:04] <maicod> kiddy: its installed by rpi-config on wheezy distros
[8:04] <Tachyon`> ahh
[8:04] <maicod> yeah it seems kiddy
[8:04] <Tachyon`> disable_overscan=1 will do it
[8:04] <Tachyon`> check your TV zoom mode
[8:04] <spadusa> It didn't though.
[8:04] <lunra> maicod: temp=40.1'C
[8:04] <maicod> kiddy: try google maybe you can find how to install the library
[8:04] <Tachyon`> there's probably several
[8:04] <kiddy> maicod: thanks, i will look for similar packages
[8:04] <Tachyon`> did you reboot?
[8:04] <maicod> lunra: ah neat
[8:04] <spadusa> Of course.
[8:04] <maicod> yw kiddy

[8:05] <Tachyon`> oh, that
[8:05] <Tachyon`> I never got that to work
[8:05] <spadusa> Bah.

[8:05] <spadusa> Well, yes. True.
[8:05] <spadusa> Bother.

[8:10] <Tachyon`> try running xaos or something then checking the speed
[8:10] <Tachyon`> it should anyway, I've not used qtonpi
[8:11] <spadusa> Right now I have to manually log in and do the dhclient eth0 crap.
[8:11] <Tachyon`> well, that's not such a chore
[8:11] <maicod> lunra: did you see my stats page?
[8:11] <Tachyon`> but with it not being debian I'm not sure how to set an interface as auto
[8:11] <Tachyon`> in debian you'd nrmally edit only /etc/network/interfaces
[8:11] <lunra> maicod: Nope, I'll take a look now
[8:11] <spadusa> It is when I don't have a spare keyboard. And the keyboard I have is a power hungry Logitech G15
[8:11] <maicod> ok cool

[8:11] <spadusa> Bah. This Fedora crap is a pain.
[8:11] <Tachyon`> ah, I had the original G15
[8:11] <Tachyon`> with the 18 macro keys
[8:12] <Tachyon`> excellent keyboard but didn't last very long

[8:12] <Tachyon`> the smallest drop between the keys
[8:12] <spadusa> Nice.
[8:12] <Tachyon`> and it's knackered
[8:12] <Tachyon`> that's how mine went, lol

[8:14] <Tachyon`> yes, I know what it usually i
[8:14] <Tachyon`> but the g15 keyboard is not usual, lol

[8:14] <maicod> aha
[8:14] <maicod> lunra beware to not compile yourself ;)
[8:15] <lunra> Maybe overclock isn't supported with arch, and maybe some software is required
[8:15] <lunra> hmm?
[8:15] <Tachyon`> it only overcloks when under load afaik?
[8:15] <Tachyon`> run xaos in a window or somthing to load it
[8:15] <Tachyon`> then check teh speed
[8:16] <maicod> or let it run behind its own tail
[8:16] <lunra> I'll grab xaos, but this program definitely generates load

[8:43] <lunra> GPU processors are good at doing simple but heavily mathematical things that don't manipulate memory much.
[8:43] <maicod> can a GPU only decode fast and not encode ?

[8:44] <maicod> I mean manipulation of memory
[8:44] <maicod> what about cuda ?
[8:45] <Jck_true> no cuda for you
[8:45] <maicod> cuda is the same for the geforce right?
[8:45] <Jck_true> the gpu is closed -
[8:45] <lunra> Wait, I confused myself. I suppose you could probably render fractals with a GPU shader. But I doubt xaos does this.
[8:45] <maicod> OK
[8:45] <lunra> temp=44.4'C
[8:45] <maicod> Jck_true: yeah thats why its so cheap
[8:45] <maicod> Jck_true: we even have to pay for the mpeg2
[8:45] <maicod> slowly rising
[8:46] <maicod> is it cause the GPU has all the h264 stuff hardcoded into it ?

[11:29] <Swat-> Since i received my rpi (model: B) is have some locks/freezes over time. A simple power cycle 'solves' it but i wanted to know what was causing it.
[11:30] <des2> #1 suspect - power supply.
[11:30] <Jck_true> Swat-: Powersupply - Powersupply - Powersupply
[11:31] <Dyskette> Yeah, mine's been rock solid over the last two or three months
[11:31] <des2> Are you doing anything when the locks occur ?
[11:31] <Swat-> The thing is i already tried 2, and got a verified working - powered - hub.
[11:31] <Swat-> des2: yes i did an apt-get upgrade :)
[11:31] <des2> Is it revision 1 or 2 ?
[11:31] <Swat-> Good q, lemme check
[11:32] <Dyskette> Also, do you have a dynamic overclock going?
[11:32] <Swat-> Nope.
[11:32] <Dyskette> Because that could cause under-load crashes.
[11:32] <Dyskette> Ah, okay.
[11:32] <Jck_true> Swat-: Did you measure TP1 and TP2? with a multimeter?
[11:32] <Swat-> Jck-true: not yet.
[11:32] <des2> 1 vs 2: http://imgur.com/a/b6Gx0#0
[11:33] <des2> So exactly how are you powering the PI ?
[11:33] <Swat-> The thing is that yesterday i saw a kernel trace on the console going nuts, i left it tracing and this morning it still was scrolling.
[11:33] <Jck_true> I had some issues with the LAN/USB stack with the older firmware...

[11:34] <des2> ok good.
[11:34] <des2> So exactly how are you powering the PI ?
[11:36] <Swat-> des2: i am using a eminent 4 port - powered - hub (which was on the verified peripherals)

[11:38] <recantha> Cute hub, that one.
[11:38] <des2> That's a little marginal for powering both the PI and the hub
[11:39] <Swat-> Normal usb-to-micro-usb cable that powers the rpi
[11:39] <des2> ok
[11:39] <des2> At this point I'd follow Jck_true's advice.
[11:39] <Swat-> its not the top port (but they are not numbered)
[11:39] <des2> And see if you can measure the voltages

[11:42] <Jck_true> Swat-: The USB stack is very funky from what I've seen/read/experienced :P
[11:43] <Jck_true> AFAIK there are still issues with the connection low speed and high speed devices to a USB hub... (Split transactions I think it's called)
[11:43] <Swat-> meh

[11:57] <Swat-> Am i doing something wrong?
[11:57] <Jck_true> Swat-: Uhmm the meter can't show anything unless you got a closed circut... So you're touching something...
[11:58] <Swat-> nvm that
[11:58] <Jck_true> Swat-: And anyway - 4.65 is on the low side :) How much you have attached when reading that?
[11:58] <Swat-> The meter shows ~4.80
[11:58] <des2> 4.65 is low
[11:59] <Swat-> 4.65 was wrong, forget it i had the meter on AC, it should have been DC obviously :)
[11:59] <des2> heh
[12:00] <des2> 4.8 can be low depending on the ripple
[12:00] <Mike-N-Go> lol
[12:00] <Jck_true> des2: How much you have attached when you get that meassure?
[12:00] <Swat-> its not constant though, i have seen as low as 4.66 to 4.80
[12:00] <des2> ?
[12:01] <Swat-> Jck_true: i guess you ment me :-)
[12:01] <des2> Looking at the hub data sheet it seems a little low end
[12:01] <Swat-> Jck_true: The usb-stick and bluetooth dongle.
[12:01] <des2> I'm guessing the 1 Amp is a little marginal.
[12:02] <Swat-> Shall i try my apple usb-charger?
[12:02] <Swat-> Or a 700ma blackberry charger?
[12:02] <des2> Is it genuine apple ?

[12:08] <Swat-> its 700mA
[12:09] <Swat-> So i am on a yourney for a 1A adapter i guess :)

[12:11] <Swat-> directly to the pi
[12:11] <Swat-> and did not attach the hub for now
[12:12] <des2> ok.
[12:12] <Swat-> i am going to try all the different ports from the hub as well
[12:12] <des2> Are you using the same cable each time ?
[12:12] <Mike-N-Go> Make sure not to go over 2.5 apm adaptor.
[12:12] <des2> Some of those cables are a little thin wire-wise to supply good power.
[12:15] <Swat-> 4.92 on the lower-middle port now.
[12:17] <swat> Swat-: there are pretty cheap 1000+mA adapters out there. Just check conrad. I got my 1200mA adapters there and I'm satisfied with them

[15:08] <Tachyon`> 16:9 is getting more popular what with 1920x1080 displays, for a long time the 16:10 1680x1050 was the de facto standard for widescreen LCDs though
[15:08] <des2> About time for monitors and TVs to have the same resolution
[15:08] * [SLB] sports a 1680x1050 :3
[15:09] <nid0> well, its already been and got most popular, the number of 16:10 displays shrivelled and died to practically none several years ago
[15:09] <Datalink> booyaa, while my acronym was off, the info I have on it shouldn't be... basically LVDS is used to talk to the LCD's last chip display controller from the converter boxes jck and I where linking between us
[15:09] <Jck_true> Datalink: Still need the cable :/ Which was my biggest concern - I actually had to scrape the old laptop the screen came from because i couldn't get the LCD cable
[15:10] <nid0> I still use 2 dell 1680x1050 displays from like 2006 because replacing them both with 1920 16:10 screens is fabulously expensive
[15:10] <Datalink> Jck_true, ick, I actually have a collection of cables now, only thing my collection still needs is SCART stuff, and that's not standard on this continent at all, so.. hard to find
[15:10] <Datalink> I'd still like to see power and data over the same cable though...
[15:11] <Jck_true> Datalink: Scart cables? I got like a million of thoose ...
[15:12] <Jck_true> And yeah only problem is that the LVDS cable going from the panel to the motherboard is a custom cable on the Acer Ferrari laptop
[15:12] <Jck_true> And where it goes through the hinges it breaks
[15:12] <Datalink> ick
[15:13] <gordonDrogon> I have a single 1280x1024 screen still...

[15:19] <Tachyon`> cinemas only used wide screens to pack more people in
[15:19] <Tachyon`> they used to be square
[15:20] <Tachyon`> and we're emulating that with things that are not cinemas, lol

[17:29] <japro> i was wondering because when measuring memcpy speed you get like uh 150-200MB/s i think?
[17:29] <Datalink> Hexxeh, have you ever tried to find readmes in a distro? but thanks XD
[17:29] <Hexxeh> the readme for rpi-update
[17:29] <Hexxeh> it's on the github page
[17:30] <Matt> oh hey, it's Hexxeh
[17:31] <Datalink> Hexxeh, self-update is one of the coolest parts of your script though
[17:31] <japro> hmm, rpi-update seems to have completely frozen the system
[17:32] <Hexxeh> japro: bad overclock?
[17:32] <japro> uh, not really
[17:32] <Hexxeh> it will hammer your SD, so it might appear locked up
[17:32] <Hexxeh> but it obviously shouldn't actually lock up your Pi
[17:32] <japro> yeah, i chouldn't log in on other consoles
[17:32] <Datalink> Hexxeh, it should say something when an update was found :/ it just said self-update twice...
[17:33] <Hexxeh> that's intentional
[17:33] <Hexxeh> just for this time
[17:33] <Hexxeh> the arguments changed
[17:33] <Hexxeh> so i had to force two updates so that the first update could relaunch the second update with reformatted args
[17:33] <Datalink> ah
[17:34] <Datalink> oh the update script is mostly a wrapper for a downloaded script isn't it?
[17:34] * jprvita|afk is now known as jprvita

[17:36] <Datalink> have you considered splitting it into a wrapper and payload?
[17:36] <Hexxeh> i think it works nicely as is

[17:38] <Datalink> one'd think they'd take an interest considering we're kinda getting up to the point Broadcom starts caring...
[17:38] <japro> ok, having at least float textures would be nice

[17:57] <japro> hmm, weird, i accidentally disconnected the internet sharing and now the pi is frozen again
[17:57] <japro> i can swap between consoles but they are unresponsive
[17:57] <japro> top is frozen and i cant ctrl-c anything
[17:58] <linuxstb> gordonDrogon: ;) And a 512MB Pi as well - twice as heavy.
[17:58] <muxe> Hey there. I just received my raspberry and I just flashed my SD-Card (with Raspbian ???wheezy???) and I think the tutorial on resizing the partitions is a bit outdated. there is no swap partition anymore I guess. I'm using gparted to resize the partitions and I see there is a bit of unallocated space "left" of the fat16 partition and a lot "right" of the ext4 partition. do I just resize fat16 all the way to the left and ext4 al
[17:58] <japro> just let raspi-config do the resizing
[17:59] <nemo> muxe: so are you one of the 512MiB crowd?
[17:59] <muxe> nemo: I am
[17:59] <nemo> :-/
[17:59] <muxe> japro: good idea, I should give it a try

[22:22] <Laban> Is there any good way to copy an existing SD-card based system on to another SD-card, but with smaller space?
[22:24] <Matt> depends how accomplished you are
[22:25] <Laban> I found a page saying to use losetup, which is a bit new to me. GParted couldn't do much with it.
[22:26] <Laban> Matt: What'd you recommend?
[22:26] <gordonDrogon> if you have anothe Linux machine it can be done.
[22:27] <Laban> I need to resize the partitions and truncate a 2gb image down to 1gb. There's plenty of free space to do this.
[22:27] <gordonDrogon> it's not that hard.
[22:27] <Laban> gordonDrogon: Not a problem, I've got several :)
[22:29] <Laban> Made an image with dd to have if the attempt fails too.
[22:30] <Matt> I'd be tempted to copy the data off the old card to somewhere else, partition up the new one, mkfs as appropriate, then copy the data back
[22:30] <Matt> seeing as you don't need to much about with bootloaders like x86 systems

[22:39] <gordonDrogon> if it's mounted under /mnt, then cp -a /mnt /var/tmp/data
[22:39] <gordonDrogon> then you can cp -a it from /var/tmp/data to the new SD card.
[22:39] <gordonDrogon> Do that for both partitions.

[23:02] <nid0> so, here's a question
[23:03] <nid0> any thoughts on how to view progress of a dd, in a different terminal to that which is running it
[23:04] * ancdix (~ancdix@ has joined #raspberrypi
[23:04] * PiBot sets mode +v ancdix
[23:05] <gordonDrogon> you kill the process with -USR1
[23:05] <gordonDrogon> so ps ax | fgrep dd
[23:05] <gordonDrogon> ge the pid number, then kill -USR1 nnn
[23:05] <nid0> which outputs progress to the terminal dd is running in
[23:05] <gordonDrogon> yea - dd is another old program...
[23:06] <gordonDrogon> dd stands for convert and copy, but cc had already been used.
[23:06] <Nik05> lol
[23:06] <Nik05> really? :P
[23:06] <nid0> yes
[23:06] <gordonDrogon> originally a tool for convering tapes from differnt block sizes and ebcdic to ascii...
[23:07] * h0cin (~h0cin@unaffiliated/h0cin) Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[23:07] <Nik05> and what is a better alternative to dd?
[23:07] <gordonDrogon> there isn't one.
[23:07] <Nik05> :P
[23:07] <gordonDrogon> however you can use 'cat' - cat < /dev/mmccc < /var/tmp/filename

[23:08] <gordonDrogon> dd can read in bigger chunks though - more efficient
[23:08] <gordonDrogon> dd if=/dev/mm... of=file bs=8M
[23:09] <nid0> just cant come up with a way to capture a copy status using it :<
[23:09] <gordonDrogon> yes, it's from the old word...
[23:09] <gordonDrogon> world. typings bad tonight. must be tired.
[23:09] <Nik05> yeah i have that too when im tired :p

[23:12] <blkhawk> lo
[23:14] <axion> pipe 'dd' through 'pv' or similar for progress
[23:15] <nid0> no can do sadly, cant alter the dd command itself
[23:15] <axion> dd if=/dev/urandom | pv | dd of=file.out
[23:15] <axion> 12.4MiB 0:00:07 [1.93MiB/s] [
[23:16] <nid0> would need to do some serious alias fiddling to be able to run the dd through pv

[23:17] <BillyBag2> Hi, anyone know how to set up SSI on apache2 ?
[23:19] <nid0> you need to make sure the include module is running, and ensure you have Options +Includes in your apache2.conf/httpd.conf
[23:20] <BillyBag2> I added that to the apache2.conf file. It is still not working.
[23:20] <nid0> and the first half of what I said?
[23:20] <gordonDrogon> some dd's can output to stdout - dd of=-

[23:44] <biberao> hi
[23:44] <AC`97> i believe mine was ~3.8-3.9v
[23:45] <TheSeven> AC`97: ethernet will drop out below 3.9V
[23:45] <AC`97> ORLY
[23:45] <TheSeven> also USB
[23:45] <AC`97> false? o.o
[23:45] <TheSeven> no idea how far down the CPU will work
[23:45] <AC`97> cpu will probably work down to 2 volts or less
[23:46] <AC`97> .. if you bypass the regulators
[23:46] <TheSeven> well the cpu also has a 3.3v rail as well, no idea what the tolerance on that is
[23:46] <AC`97> ohthat
[23:46] <biberao> AC`97: you're old
[23:46] <TheSeven> anyway, adding a better 3.3v regulator helps it work down to 2.9V :)
[23:46] * AC`97 hisses and crackles at biberao
[23:47] <AC`97> also, i typo'd. 3v, not 2v :P

[23:49] <scummos> AC`97: I tried to solder with a frying pan

[23:49] <IT_Sean> O_o
[23:49] <AC`97> om nom nom, brown
[23:49] <scummos> did you use special board materials?
[23:49] <AC`97> need flux
[23:49] <scummos> mine was FR-4 which apparently doesn't like more than 140 C
[23:50] <IT_Sean> You tried to solder a board in a frying pan?
[23:50] <scummos> IT_Sean: yes
[23:50] <scummos> it worked, even
[23:50] <scummos> it's just a bit brown
[23:50] <IT_Sean> what board?
[23:50] <IT_Sean> Not a raspi, i hope...
[23:50] <scummos> uh, just a test board for now
[23:50] <scummos> no xD
[23:50] <IT_Sean> Okay then.
[23:50] <scummos> (a 10QFN adc)
[23:51] <AC`97> did your pan have oil in it?
[23:51] <scummos> no
[23:51] <scummos> should it?
[23:52] <AC`97> probably not
[23:52] <scummos> it was not actually a pan, it was an approximate pan
[23:52] <IT_Sean> Did you season the board with a selection of spices, first?
[23:52] <scummos> :D
[23:52] <scummos> no
[23:52] <IT_Sean> that was your mistake
[23:52] <scummos> but FR-4 in general does not seem to like that technique, so I'm wondering whether there's better materials for that
