[0:08] <AC`97> ^ i created one of these using individual segments of very thick copper wire
[0:08] <AC`97> + silver solder + butane torch om nom nom
[0:08] <AC`97> i had to grind angles on each segment too. lots of finger burn

[0:12] <strangelemon> Hi I have a 512MB of RAM Pi and I'm suspecting that the memory is not fully allocated. Do I need to grab these firmware files: https://github.com/raspberrypi/firmware/tree/master/boot ?
[0:12] <strangelemon> I couldn't find anything comprehensive online.
[0:12] <AC`97> strangelemon: which what distro
[0:12] <strangelemon> Raspbian
[0:13] <strangelemon> when I run top it tells me that KiB Mem: 189104 total, which is 184 m
[0:13] <strangelemon> *mb
[0:14] <strangelemon> I ran apt-get update && dist-update but it didn't get any RPi firmware packages...

[0:16] <strangelemon> Is there a better way to check memory allocation?
[0:16] <AC`97> yes.
[0:16] * jodaro (~Adium@75-101-50-37.dsl.static.sonic.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:16] * PiBot sets mode +v jodaro
[0:16] <Syliss> oi
[0:16] <AC`97> what is in your /boot/config.txt ?
[0:17] <strangelemon> It doesn't have a line for gpu_mem if that's what you're asking
[0:17] <strangelemon> which gave me the idea that its not up to date
[0:17] <strangelemon> It doesn't have anything pertaining to memory as far as I can see
[0:18] <AC`97> so you still have a start.elf ?
[0:18] <strangelemon> yes
[0:18] <AC`97> interesting
[0:18] <AC`97> perhaps you can try upgrading manually
[0:18] <strangelemon> and I have some replacements for it, all of which have numbers from the 256mb Pi
[0:18] <strangelemon> from the git repository?
[0:19] <AC`97> yes.
[0:19] <strangelemon> should I just replace the start.elf? or the other files too?
[0:20] * OmNomDePlume (RaycisChar@cpc20-lutn10-2-0-cust20.9-3.cable.virginmedia.com) Quit ()
[0:21] <AC`97> others too
[0:21] <strangelemon> so everything in that repository?
[0:21] <AC`97> as much as you can.
[0:21] <strangelemon> I'm kind of worried that this will make my Pi unbootable
[0:21] <Syliss> strangelemon: you can't brick the pi
[0:22] <strangelemon> I can't?
[0:22] <Syliss> just format the sd card and you'll be fine
[0:22] <strangelemon> Yeah that's true
[0:22] <Syliss> there is no bios or the like
[0:22] <strangelemon> yeah of course
[0:22] <strangelemon> okay here goes
[0:22] <strangelemon> sorry for the noob question but is there an easy way to do this with git?
[0:22] <TheSeven> well the GPU thing is kind of a bios, but it's on the sd card :)
[0:24] * eaubass (~sniffer@ Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[0:24] <strangelemon> should I move away the current contents of /boot or just thrown stuff in from the repository?
[0:24] * jnd (~jenda@unaffiliated/jnd) Quit (Read error: Operation timed out)
[0:25] <AC`97> make a backup if you wish
[0:25] <TheSeven> you need bootcode.bin and start.elf
[0:25] <AC`97> and perhaps start_cd.elf
[0:26] <AC`97> what is this fixup*.dat ?
[0:26] <strangelemon> no idea what those are for...
[0:26] <TheSeven> start_cd.elf is the 16MB GPU memory version of start.elf IIUC
[0:26] <TheSeven> no idea what that fixup thing is
[0:27] <TheSeven> also is the cutdown kernel somehow related to the cutdown gpu code, or is that a completely different kind of cutdown?

[0:27] <AC`97> er, no clue
[0:27] <AC`97> perhaps it's also related to the gpu

[0:35] <strangelemon> I'm struggling with git
[0:36] <AC`97> orly
[0:36] <strangelemon> Is it just git clone https://github.com/raspberrypi/firmware/tree/master/boot
[0:36] <AC`97> http://ponies.edited.us/tmp/firmware/boot.zip
[0:36] <AC`97> i did it for you.
[0:36] <AC`97> :P
[0:36] <AC`97> hope you have an unzip util
[0:37] <strangelemon> Oh thanks so much!

[0:37] <AC`97> i cloned the whole tree.
[0:37] <AC`97> lololol
[0:38] <AC`97> git clone git://github.com/raspberrypi/firmware.git
[0:38] <strangelemon> ah

[0:44] <AC`97> hmm
[0:44] <strangelemon> do I just manually put in a gpu_mem line
[0:44] <strangelemon> ?
[0:44] <AC`97> yes
[0:45] <strangelemon> what is the grammar?
[0:45] <strangelemon> gpu_mem=?
[0:45] <AC`97> er, no clue.. never used that before :P
[0:45] <AC`97> doesn't hurt to try
[0:46] <AC`97> mervaka: i shall have a Stellaris LM4F120 next month >:D
[0:46] <strangelemon> Hm it's a shame they don't have a model config file in that repo

[0:46] <strangelemon> is this going to become available in the next few days or are they gonna keep shipping pis that don't use their full ram?
[0:46] <preditor> If only there was a wiki or something that had the information in *sigh*
[0:46] <AC`97> https://github.com/Evilpaul/RPi-config/blob/master/config.txt
[0:46] <AC`97> strangelemon: ^
[0:47] <strangelemon> The wikis been pretty helpful but I didn't find anything on memory allocation
[0:47] <AC`97> wiki probably hasn't been updated yet... perhaps
[0:47] <strangelemon> oh shit now I see it
[0:47] <preditor> "oh poo" you mean?
[0:48] <AC`97> oh manure
[0:48] <BillyBag2> Thanks for the help. I found the issue. The "default" "sites-available" script has "AllowOveride None", this needs to be changed to "AllowOveride Options".
[0:50] <strangelemon> sorry

[0:53] * PiBot sets mode +v DeliriumTremens
[0:53] <DeliriumTremens> on my pi, i had to add a line to rc.local to get my wlan0 up
[0:53] <DeliriumTremens> i also have a bunch of mounts in fstab
[0:54] <DeliriumTremens> these arent mounting, i assume because fstab is firing before rc.local
[0:55] <preditor> I finally got round to soldering a couple of pieces of wire onto the polyfuses on my rev 1.0 RasPi. It's not perfect, but it does help.
[0:56] <strangelemon> what is that for?

[1:01] <strangelemon> Actually I'm having another problem
[1:02] <strangelemon> for some reason
[1:02] <strangelemon> if my Pi turns on when it is not HDMI-connected to any screen
[1:02] <strangelemon> connecting the cable later doesn't turn the display on

[1:02] <DeliriumTremens> strangelemon: same here
[1:03] <strangelemon> according to this page:

[1:03] * Berry6510 (~Berry@5356AEE3.cm-6-7c.dynamic.ziggo.nl) Quit (Ping timeout: 240 seconds)
[1:03] <strangelemon> I think the problem is that it won't go into HDMI mode if HDMI is not detected during boot
[1:03] <IT_Sean> The pi detects HDMI displays at boot. If there isn't one, it fails over to composite out. you can set it to force output to HDMI, however.
[1:03] <strangelemon> okay I guess I was right
[1:03] <strangelemon> lemme try it out now
[1:03] <blkhawk> any idea how to get omxplayer to work better with files without audio track?
[1:03] <preditor> Force hotplug. It's necessary.
[1:04] <blkhawk> it alwaysa takes about 2 minutes to play a flv file without audio

[1:04] <scummos> AC`97: hmm, okay, thanks for your help!
[1:04] <scummos> AC`97: I'll do some further research then :(
[1:04] <maicod> hi
[1:05] <maicod> I finally got quake3 compiled and it runs but when the level is loaded it reboots my whole Pi. I tried different gpu/cpu splits
[1:05] <strangelemon> Okay member:identifier:deliriumtremens it worked
[1:06] <blkhawk> maicod: maybe it runs out of memory
[1:06] <blkhawk> do you have a swap file?
[1:06] <maicod> 100mb
[1:06] <maicod> the normal swapfile setting of wheezy
[1:06] <blkhawk> ah
[1:07] <blkhawk> shouldn't reboot in any case
[1:07] <DeliriumTremens> strangelemon: did it?
[1:07] <BillyBag2> maicod, is it ok in lowest overclock setting?
[1:07] <DeliriumTremens> noice
[1:07] * DeliriumTremens waits for pi to come back up
[1:07] <maicod> it is not overclocked
[1:07] <DeliriumTremens> i had some...issues with my last OC -.-
[1:07] <maicod> I suspect the sound driver
[1:07] * jbicha (~jeremy@ubuntu/member/jbicha) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:07] * PiBot sets mode +v jbicha
[1:08] <maicod> can I run quake with nosound somehow to test ?
[1:08] <blkhawk> maicod: there should be a way to start it without sound
[1:08] <maicod> oh
[1:08] <blkhawk> a command like option i assume
[1:08] <blkhawk> doom had one ;)
[1:08] <BillyBag2> If i short the USB fuses can I feed power in though the usb connector?
[1:08] <maicod> blkhawk: I tried different memory settings like 64/192 128/128 even 160/96
[1:09] <maicod> ah i'll google
[1:09] <blkhawk> maicod: I don't think you need too much texture memory
[1:09] <blkhawk> when Quake 3 came out 64MB was the best you could get
[1:09] <maicod> OK
[1:09] <maicod> so its probably the sound driver
[1:10] <AC`97> maicod: overclock ??
[1:10] <AC`97> oh nvm
[1:10] * AC`97 doesn't know how to read
[1:10] <maicod> AC`97: will do that later
[1:10] <maicod> heh
[1:11] <AC`97> or try some overvolt first
[1:11] <maicod> would it help if the basic 700mhz doesnt work?
[1:11] <AC`97> possibly
[1:11] <blkhawk> maicod: 64mb was how much memory most PCs had at the time
[1:11] <maicod> I mean it should run albeit slower
[1:11] <maicod> Ok blkhawk
[1:11] <AC`97> i had 8MB
[1:12] <AC`97> then 16mb... then all the way up to 96MB :D
[1:12] <blkhawk> anyone in here knows how to get omxplayer to work without sound?
[1:12] <des2> I once paid $2,400 for 64MB!
[1:12] <strangelemon> DeliriumTremens: did it work?
[1:12] <AC`97> . . .
[1:12] <BillyBag2> Can I control the volume of the HDMI port?
[1:12] <AC`97> BillyBag2: possibly not
[1:12] <DeliriumTremens> strangelemon: i havent tried yet
[1:12] <blkhawk> AC`97: the memory prices crashed in 99 / 2000
[1:13] <blkhawk> suddently 512 became possible
[1:13] <strangelemon> oh well it should work, good luck
[1:13] <DeliriumTremens> i have sme other things i wanted to do before sending it down again
[1:13] <Blu3Knight> BillyBag2: Not the Volume of port but you should be able to control the overall volume with alas utilities
[1:13] <strangelemon> has anyone managed to get any browser to work smoothly on the Pi?
[1:13] <AC`97> strangelemon: dillo
[1:13] <AC`97> links/elinks/lynx
[1:13] <des2> The PI is a little slow for modern browsers.
[1:13] <strangelemon> right so nothing x-based
[1:14] <AC`97> des2: links is not a modern browser? o.o
[1:14] <AC`97> strangelemon: dillo, xlinks
[1:14] <des2> Acelerated X should be out soon hopefullt.
[1:14] <strangelemon> oh I never tried those
[1:14] <Blu3Knight> strangelemon: Depends on the X ??? I am playing with a few very small ones now to see which is better to include in distro.

[1:19] <maicod> I managed to disable the sound but it crashed after 30sec of playing a level
[1:19] <maicod> the whole Pi reboots
[1:19] <mervaka> I've gone for the ST disco boards. loads of bang for your buck!

[1:21] <maicod> ok
[1:21] <AC`97> but then edit your config manually and bump down the values

[1:22] <maicod> AC`97: the medium setting says 900mhz/2 overvolt
[1:22] <maicod> the lower ones don't overvolt
[1:23] <maicod> 700 and 800
[1:23] <AC`97> edit it manually :P
[1:23] <maicod> can I choose 'anything'?
[1:23] <AC`97> er... no clue
[1:23] <maicod> lemme see
[1:23] <maicod> in config.txt huh?
[1:23] <AC`97> yes
[1:23] <AC`97> arm_freq=800, over_voltage=6
[1:24] <maicod> will try :)
[1:24] <AC`97> and see if quakes stops quaking XD
[1:24] <maicod> yea

[1:26] <AC`97> what's a weather station ??
[1:26] <AC`97> is it like a train station
[1:26] <maicod> AC`97: my config.txt has these:
[1:26] <maicod> core_freq=333
[1:26] <maicod> sdram_freq=450
[1:26] <maicod> over_voltage=2
[1:26] <maicod> and also arm_freq=900
[1:26] <maicod> what should I do with them all :)
[1:26] <AC`97> oh, bump down arm_freq then
[1:27] <AC`97> were they commented out? o.o
[1:27] <TeeCee> AC`97: http://www.weather-station-products.co.uk/
[1:27] <maicod> nope
[1:27] <maicod> AC`97: I chose the medium settings in raspi-config first
[1:27] <AC`97> well, get arm_freq down to 800, and try to raise over_voltage
[1:27] <maicod> so the others can be commented out ?
[1:27] <AC`97> oh. yah.
[1:27] <maicod> ok
[1:28] <AC`97> TeeCee: looks gnarly
[1:28] <Datalink> I'd be using the recommended turbo mode chart...
[1:28] <AC`97> Datalink: which what turbo mode chart ??
[1:28] <AC`97> we're just doing some debugging
[1:28] <AC`97> or uh.. troubleshooting
[1:28] <maicod> ok rebooting
[1:28] <AC`97> or troublequaking
[1:29] <maicod> heh
[1:29] <maicod> AC`97: stella is cool. u can play a2600 games ;)
[1:30] <AC`97> games are boring though
[1:30] <maicod> heh
[1:31] <maicod> it rebooted immediately after issueing ./ioquake3.arm

[1:55] <maicod> des2: quake3 finally runs but I am sad that the other Pi is not stable :(
[1:55] <IT_Sean> Chicken, no. To appease the technology gods, i recommend sacraficing a floppy disk.
[1:55] <Tachyon`> probably fine, chickens are for SCSI chains really
[1:55] <Tachyon`> my pi can't seem to play wrath of khan over the network using xbmc

[2:18] <maicod> yea
[2:18] <Tachyon`> but I'd be very surprised
[2:18] <maicod> <dutch :)
[2:18] <Tachyon`> ah yes ;p
[2:18] <maicod> Tachyon`: really quake runs fine on one and not on the other
[2:18] <maicod> it reboots it
[2:18] <Tachyon`> yeah, clearly there is a problem
[2:18] <Tachyon`> I'd suspect bad BGA connections myself
[2:18] <Tachyon`> suppose it'll have to go back
[2:18] <maicod> :(
[2:18] <maicod> yeah
[2:19] <Tachyon`> should try quake on mine
[2:19] <maicod> i'll keep it aside for now (have to YET ANOTHER TIME) cycle my Pi's
[2:19] <Tachyon`> try running xaos on it instead of quake
[2:19] <Tachyon`> can't beleive how well XBMC works, tv remote controls it etc.

[2:21] <Tachyon`> ahh, hrm
[2:21] <Tachyon`> and they both exhibited fs corruption issues?

[2:22] <des2> One Samsung
[2:22] <maicod> yeah I start using the RS one again
[2:22] <maicod> got to move it inside the Lego case :)
[2:22] <maicod> yeah des2
[2:22] <maicod> funny eh :)
[2:22] <Tachyon`> strangely the 16 that was giving me problems was a high quality sandisk job
[2:22] <maicod> ah I now got a PNY one
[2:22] <Tachyon`> so I suspect it's just compatibility isses rather than actual fautls
[2:23] <maicod> probably the flash controller ic

[2:25] <Tachyon`> aye
[2:25] <maicod> ah o
[2:25] <maicod> ok
[2:25] <des2> On later model Version1s the USB polyfuses were replaced with 0 ohm resistors
[2:25] <maicod> yeah they differ
[2:26] <maicod> I know yea
[2:26] <maicod> wonders why cause it seems the Pi is less protected
[2:26] <des2> The polyfuses limited the current out via USB to 140 mA
[2:26] <TheSeven> because the usb polyfuses caused a hell of a lot of problems?
[2:26] <maicod> ok :)
[2:26] <des2> And caused voltage drops.
[2:27] <maicod> aye
[2:27] <des2> This caused problems with some keyboards
[2:27] <preditor> http://imgur.com/oUP23 On some of them users have put their own "0ohm resistors" in
[2:27] <des2> And bluetooth and Wifi adapters.
[2:27] <rikkib> 5.5v input voltage (tp1 - tp2 4.75v) 400mA ~
[2:27] <maicod> ok I get it
[2:27] <TheSeven> preditor: not quite as visible on mine, just little non-insulated wires around the fuses :)
[2:28] <Tachyon`> yes, there's a small wire on mine soemwhere for similar reasons, lol
[2:28] <rikkib> Now have power break out and driving the RPi with a 2A DC-DC converter
[2:28] <maicod> rikkib/preditor/theseven: one of my Pi's crashes when running Quake3 and when I insert all cables and the same sdcard in the other Pi it works fine
[2:28] <maicod> so I suspect a faulty PI :(

[2:31] <maicod> would that be a good test ?

[2:50] <TheSeven> yeah, that's the meaning of _cd
[2:51] <TheSeven> but what is fixup.dat?
[2:51] <maicod> des2: lemme do the checking of 2nd pi first
[2:51] <des2> maicod can you try it without any USB things plugged in.
[2:52] <des2> Start a program using the local file or @startup in cron
[2:52] <TheSeven> des2: the pictures both have usb polyfuses, but apparently different brands
[2:52] <TheSeven> both are 140mA
[2:52] <TheSeven> I think the input polyfuse is more relevant
[2:52] <des2> That's interesting. I didn't know there were multiple brands used.
[2:52] <TheSeven> (on the bottom of the board)
[2:53] <TheSeven> and if that is from a different brand as well that might well explain things
[2:53] <TheSeven> des2: also look at the weird CE logo on the right one
[2:53] <TheSeven> maicod: the right one is the nonworking one, right?
[2:53] <asaru> hmm
[2:54] <asaru> distcc setup.. now what to compile to test it
[2:54] <des2> Good catch TheSeven that's a really bogus CE

[2:54] <TheSeven> http://i1152.photobucket.com/albums/p499/maicod/IMG_3530.jpg
[2:55] <des2> I wonder if these were made in different factories.
[2:55] <des2> And one got some sketchy parts.
[2:55] <maicod> right one is the RS one that works fine
[2:55] <TheSeven> funny
[2:55] <TheSeven> mine looks like the left one
[2:55] <des2> Darn I would have guessed the left one.
[2:55] <maicod> des2: what you said is wrong :)
[2:56] <TheSeven> the right one looks like a really early bird one
[2:56] <maicod> hehe

[2:56] <TheSeven> can you make a photo of the bottom side as well?
[2:56] <TheSeven> I'm interested in both the input polyfuse and the CE logo
[2:56] <maicod> yeah later
[2:56] <maicod> ok
[2:56] <maicod> first the voltage stuff
[2:56] <TheSeven> sure
[2:56] <des2> maicod did you measure the voltage on the bad one ?
[2:57] <TheSeven> I think he's just about to do that now

[2:58] <maicod> its 4.88 volt
[2:58] <maicod> same !

[2:59] <des2> Use 3 hands.
[2:59] <maicod> ofc
[2:59] <maicod> heh
[2:59] <maicod> nah the wires are stuck in the pi
[2:59] <maicod> need one hand only
[3:00] <PReDiToR> http://imgur.com/CJg3r There is a logo on my early one in the same place, and the polyfuses are the same
[3:00] <PReDiToR> That was from RS
[3:01] <maicod> it stayed above 4.83 and it got to 5 when it rebooted
[3:02] <maicod> so I guess polyfuses are good
[3:02] <maicod> guess its RAM or the SOC
[3:03] <des2> GOt to 5 ?
[3:03] <des2> Interesting.
[3:03] <maicod> well ofc the cpu wasnt calculating at the reboot moment
[3:03] <maicod> so the voltage went up
[3:04] <maicod> but during a load it never went down 4.83
[3:04] <maicod> what things do you need me to take picture of ?
[3:05] <maicod> preditor: the one I got from RS has the same polyfuses. does yours have hynix mem ?
[3:06] <maicod> that one works fine with quake

[3:17] <maicod> yea
[3:17] <UnaClocker> I smoked my first 10k board, that's the one in the pictures.. Reversed the polarity.. Grrr..
[3:18] <maicod> so I wasnt nr 9999 or lower
[3:18] <maicod> maybe I was lucky :)
[3:18] <UnaClocker> I could probably fix it if I had a source for a new CPU..

[3:19] <PReDiToR> I can get you one, with 512MB RAM fitted for ??30

[3:20] <des2> Well you can see the partnumber on pics of the new one.
[3:21] <PReDiToR> I thought it might be a nice idea to make a daughterboard with the BGA on the base for doing POP, but with SODIMM slots on the top.
[3:21] <TheSeven> and I suspect you'd probably even get someone to make one for you, now that the firmware has to be somewhat flexible for 512M anyway
[3:21] <des2> Is there a 1GB version of the chip ?
[3:21] <PReDiToR> des2: No.
[3:21] <TheSeven> maicod: you don't need to, I've seen enough
[3:21] <des2> That would be an awesome project that would get you tons of hits and result in lots of destroyed pis

[4:14] <wiley> would something like this work, or would it not switch fast enough: https://www.sparkfun.com/products/8745 ?
[4:14] <des2> So you just need a level converter.
[4:15] <UnaClocker> wiley: Yup.
[4:15] <wiley> yes, but I'm getting confused due to all the different busses that encounter the same issue

[4:17] <Datalink> I've got a 74 series octal level shifter around here I use for small projects... got it with a 3.3v OLED that's SPI controlled.... since it was a kit intended for stuff like Arduino...
[4:17] <Datalink> the bottleneck with serial is usually the processor, anything upstream or downstream can usually handle the speed if it's an untimed logic chip

[4:24] <wiley> but I can't find a spec sheet for the device I'm interfacing to, so I don't know if it considers 3.3V "high" (it's an iRobot Create)
[4:25] <des2> atouk you mean higher level windows oriented programs ?
[4:26] <des2> Standard ttl works fine with 3.3v in if it is in face 3.3v
[4:27] <wiley> does the RPi generally maintain 3.3V?
[4:28] <des2> Not sure what the PI's GPIO Hi levels actually are.
[4:28] <des2> TTL requires 2.7v.

[6:57] <des2> Yes machine.
[6:57] <des2> On the PIs without Polyfuses on the USB ports you can backfeed power.
[6:59] <wiley> on the wiki page about low level peripherals, I see references to both UART0 and UART1, but they seem to be routed to the same pins
[6:59] <wiley> what's up with that?
[6:59] <Gumby> is there any serial number or anything like that which can be found doing something like lshw or dmidecode on a RPi?

[7:01] <__machine> piney0: actually, it wasnt a powered hub... it was a Y usb cable... one end goes to the device (tv tuner), other to the pi direct, and third to a usb power source... and that powers the RPi?
[7:02] <piney0> __machine, that should be fine as long as there is sufficient current to power the pi and the other device if that device draws off of usb

[7:32] <Milos> I've asked this before but I didn't understand what I was told - can I hotswap the raspberry pi power from the GPIO pins to USB? There will be a short time while they are both connected, but is this harmful?
[7:32] <Milos> I was told something like it would be have similarly to a circuit in parallel.
[7:32] <Milos> I think.
[7:32] <des2> You can.
[7:32] <Milos> :D
[7:33] <des2> You will have 2 voltage sources in parallel through a small resistor
[7:33] <des2> (polyfuse)
[7:33] <Milos> Cool.
[7:33] <des2> This will cause current to flow from one supply to another.
[7:33] <des2> The amount depending onthe voltage difference.
[7:33] <Milos> Yep.
[7:34] <des2> When you do something like that it's a good idea to have some way to prevent/reduce back current.
[7:34] <des2> And to match the voltage sources as close as possible in voltage.

[7:36] <des2> Ofen the best way to do this is to have a capacitor on the input and just switch very quickly between the sources.
[7:36] <Milos> A diode would stop back-current, right?
[7:36] <Milos> But really I don't think it's a big deal if I have it connected for one second.

[8:41] <Milos> What would actually happen if I ran a pi off 6V?
[8:41] <Milos> In fact I did that once, and it was fine.
[8:41] <Milos> Does it just lower the lifetime?
[8:41] <des2> Well where is the 5v in passed to ?
[8:41] <Milos> GPIO pin
[8:42] <des2> The PI itself runs off 3.3v dropped by a regujlator.
[8:42] <Milos> So it would just get hot?
[8:42] <des2> And another regulator drops the voltage further.
[8:42] <des2> USB ports need the 5V.
[8:42] <Milos> So there's really no need for the "4.75 - 5.25V" thing everyone's so precise about
[8:42] <Milos> ah
[8:43] <Milos> and if I gave it 6V, then the USB would get 6V?
[8:43] <des2> Yes the USB would get 6 since that is passed through (after the poly fuse)
[8:43] <des2> I'm not sure what else gets the 5volts passed to.

[9:39] <Milos> des2, that's also a good idea.
[9:39] <des2> There's a lot of people haveing PIs reset when they plug in USB devices.

[9:39] <des2> But that work fine after reboot.

[9:41] <Milos> I just assume the device is dying for another reason, but what we are both agreeing is that it isn't a physical disconnect.
[9:41] <bircoe> no but there can be things like carrier resets
[9:42] <bircoe> or if the 5v rail dips too low it may just reset itself as well
[9:42] <Milos> Yeah, but having used 3G dongles in every other machine for weeks without seeing this I know it's related to this specific case only.
[9:42] <Milos> I reckon it has to be the voltage.
[9:42] <Milos> That's the only thing left on my list.
[9:42] <Milos> So I need to either increase my input voltage or add some kind of capacitor.
[9:42] <Milos> Or both.
[9:42] <bircoe> if you have a multimeter with data logging you could always record the 5v rail and check the min and max after a reset happens
[9:43] <Milos> I don't have data logging sadly but I have watched the TP1/TP2 values sway around while the 3G dongle is busy.
[9:43] <des2> With an atod connected to the PI it can log it's own voltage.

[9:43] <bircoe> I'll place money on it being the fault of the USB cable :)
[9:43] <Milos> If I cover the dongle with my hand, the voltage drops further, because it's trying to use more power to transmit. I assume in some cases it may just use more power to transmit on its own and that's why.

[9:44] <bircoe> some modems are pretty power hungry, one of our previous models that we used at work came with one of those twin USB cable for extra power!
[9:44] <des2> Milos you don't have the USB polyfuses on your pi, right ?
[9:44] <Milos> des2, right. When I do, then it won't work at all.
[9:45] <des2> ok
[9:45] <bircoe> Milos do you mean USB cable between the Pi and PSU?
[9:45] <bircoe> or Pi and Modem?
[9:45] <Milos> bircoe, all of my K3805-z dongles come with the dual power ones. I've used them a lot. It still happens, because my power supply fails to constantly supply 5+V.
[9:45] <Milos> bircoe, both.
[9:46] <bircoe> it could also be something to do with the Pi itself, I've seen a few people complainging of USB drives that disconnect
[9:46] <Milos> I have 4 pis.
[9:46] <bircoe> for no apprent reason
[9:46] <Milos> but yes
[9:46] <Milos> it could be a design thing
[9:46] <Milos> and/or driver issue
[9:46] <Milos> I'm waiting for them to write better USB drivers.

[9:47] <Milos> The end result is I need to rule out my power supply as being at fault. So I need to ensure I am constantly supplying let's say 5.2V to the pi no matter what the load might be.
[9:47] <Milos> What kind of capacitor could I use at the power supply end to ensure this?
[9:48] <bircoe> I did a barrel jack mod on one of my Pi's and the voltage at the test points is much more stable then with a USB cable.
[9:49] <Milos> well at the moment I'm not using a USB cable but powering from the GPIO ports and using a 12V->5V step-down, except I'm getting 5V with no load.
[9:49] <bircoe> and higher
[9:49] <Milos> When I add a load it drops, and when the 3G dongle begins to be used, even more.
[9:49] <bircoe> how far does it drop?
[9:50] <Milos> It goes under the lower limit 4.70V at times, 4.75V at times, 4.8V at times, depending on whatever factors
[9:50] <Milos> I'm assuming it only takes one stuff-up to cause it to disconnect
[9:50] <Milos> so I want to rule it out once-and-for-all, by making sure the testpoints always show more than 5V.
[9:50] <bircoe> yeah that's getting kinda low

[9:52] <bircoe> The DC barrel jack modded Pi is running off 5v 3a plug pack i get the following voltages:
[9:52] <Milos> they all do the same thing so "5V" regulators are ount of the question
[9:52] <bircoe> no load 5.16
[9:52] <Milos> I want 5.5V regulators.
[9:52] <Milos> aha
[9:52] <des2> Get an LM\317K
[9:52] <bircoe> load 5.16
[9:52] <bircoe> Idle 5.18
[9:52] <Milos> o_O
[9:52] <bircoe> no load is actually 5.22 sorry
[9:52] <des2> Feed it with 9 Volts.
[9:52] <Milos> that sounds great
[9:53] <bircoe> 317K... isn't that the T03 version?
[9:53] <Milos> des2, I've only got a 12V battery
[9:53] <des2> Set it to 5.25volt no load.
[9:53] <des2> Yes.
[9:53] <bircoe> heh
[9:53] <bircoe> tad overkill
[9:53] <bircoe> better have a big heatsink!
[9:53] <des2> IIndeed.
[9:53] <Milos> if it's inefficient, linear etc then I don't even want to try it
[9:54] <Milos> I need something that's efficient and won't need a heatsink for 12V
[9:54] <Milos> so I got this:
[9:54] <des2> There are lots of switching things you can buy that let you adjust output.
[9:54] <Milos> http://www.ebay.com/itm/140865717275?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649
[9:54] <bircoe> I mad a variable load using a T03 2N3055 and at 4amps it sure gets hot!!! with a smallish heatsink in the region of 70 degrees C
[9:54] <Milos> it lets me choose the output voltage
[9:54] <Milos> and has synchronous rectification
[9:54] <Milos> so I assume it's not lying when it says 96% efficient
[9:54] <Milos> but we'll see
[9:54] <Milos> it's currently shipping
[9:54] <Milos> hopefully it won't disappoint me
[9:54] <bircoe> 96 might be a stretch :)
[9:54] <bircoe> probably closer to 90%
[9:55] <Milos> well, we can find out
[9:55] <Milos> 90% is probably better than the LMs
[9:55] <bircoe> by a mile!
[9:55] <bircoe> well
[9:55] <des2> Oh yes.
[9:55] <Milos> :)
[9:55] <bircoe> unless your referring to the switch LM's!!
[9:55] <Milos> I looked at the LM2596(s)
[9:55] <bircoe> like 2935 or what ever they are
[9:55] <Milos> it's quite efficient, but not at 12V in 5V out
[9:55] <Milos> graphs show about 80%
[9:55] <Milos> on the ti.com site
[9:56] <Milos> it's not "bad" but it's still a waste
[9:56] <bircoe> 80% is still respectable
[9:57] <Milos> well, I'll be able to compare
[9:57] <Milos> as I ordered LM2596 as well
[9:57] <Milos> I basically ordered everything because I got so annoyed at this
[9:57] <Milos> so I'm just going to buy 20 things and find out which one is best
[9:57] <bircoe> heh
[9:57] <bircoe> fair call
[9:57] <bircoe> I'm keen to try some of these

[9:57] <Milos> spending 4 months diagnosing something when it's hindering my ability to innovate and make cool things
[9:58] <Milos> I can't communicate with my pi unless the 3G is stable
[9:58] <bircoe> switching 3 pin regs that are pin compatible with 78xx's
[9:58] <Milos> :O
[9:59] <bircoe> you know places like sparkfun have gsm boards that can talk via serial?
[9:59] <Milos> GSM, like 2G?
[9:59] <Milos> like super slow?
[9:59] <bircoe> I'm sure someone does 3g and 4g
[9:59] <Milos> but the interface speed will limit it
[10:00] <bircoe> https://www.sparkfun.com/products/9607
[10:00] <Milos> lol
[10:00] <Milos> does that say $100
[10:01] <bircoe> what sort of data does it need to transfer?
[10:01] <Milos> images
[10:01] * nesdude (~nesdude@unaffiliated/nesdude) Quit ()
[10:01] <bircoe> yes :P but theres cheaper places than sparkfun
[10:01] <Milos> it's going to be for an RC quadcopter, at least one of the ideas
[10:02] <bircoe> i just use them s examples as they seem to have everything
[10:02] <Milos> haha yeah
[10:02] <bircoe> you hardly need 3g speed for that :P
[10:02] <Milos> this was my first attempt http://www.milos.ivanovic.co.nz/blog/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/pi-gps.jpg
[10:02] <Milos> and then it started crapping up, turns out it was my massive black battery there
[10:03] <bircoe> considered the long rang xbee's?
[10:03] <Milos> that was with my old pi

[10:03] <bircoe> go Vodafail!
[10:03] <bircoe> 2.4ghz rf transcievers
[10:04] <bircoe> some of them have stupid long ranges measured in miles
[10:04] <Milos> well
[10:04] <Milos> while that is fun, I still would like to get this working over the Internet
[10:04] <Milos> as that has many many benefits
[10:04] <bircoe> fair nuts
[10:04] <bircoe> planning on sending video over internet aswell or just control?
[10:05] <Milos> eventually
[10:05] <Milos> it's cool because the latency is only about 100ms
[10:05] <Milos> it's totally bearable
[10:05] <bircoe> 100ms is huge when your talking remote control :P

[11:18] <gordonDrogon> yes, Pi talking to arduino...
[11:18] <gordonDrogon> there's a tiny sort of remote control program running in the arduino and the pi just send commands to do the same functions remotely - digitalRead/write, etc.
[11:18] <gordonDrogon> all over the serial line.
[11:18] <gordonDrogon> one of these days I'll expand on it, but: https://projects.drogon.net/drogon-remote-control/
[11:19] <gordonDrogon> The pi in that picture is actually running a program written in BASIC - I added the remote control functions into my basic interpreter - so yo use the same function to talk to the on-board GPIO or remote GPIO.
[11:20] <gordonDrogon> it's quite clever/sane - at least I think so ;-)

[11:49] <gordonDrogon> isn't more correct to say that Sony is manufacturing in the UK and selling to both Farnell and RS ..

[11:52] <des2> It's only Farnell that has the deal with Sony.
[11:52] <des2> Which is why people can get PIs so fast from them and RS is so slow.

[11:55] <gordonDrogon> yea, I'm sure RS were probably just clearing their last ship-load from .cn before switching.
[11:56] <des2> By contrast, the second main Raspberry Pi distributor, Element 14/Premier Farnell, promises delivery two weeks after ordering. This is in part because it does its manufacturing in a Sony facility in Pencoed, South Wales, rather than China, the company said.
[11:56] <M0RBD> should it say "a wnaed yng nghymru " on them!
[11:56] <M0RBD> :P
[11:56] <des2> RS Components, which works with Chinese manufacturing partners to build its Raspberry Pis, is warning new customers that the device won't be dispatched for six weeks. It puts the hold-up down to problems getting hold of the Broadcom BCM2835 chip at the heart of the credit card-sized computer, as well as the levels of demand.

[12:38] <Enverex> I'm looking at setting things up a little more custom and I was wondering what the Pi expects partition wise. Normally you DD the image to the SD card, but if I wanted to do it manually, does it actually need an MBR or does it load from the first partition (if it can read it) regardless? e.g. if I manually set up an SD card to have a FAT16 partition and an ext4 partition and put all the relevant boot stuff into the FAT partition, it should w

[12:38] <tero> i have to wait
[12:38] <tero> 72 hours :(
[12:38] <Tachyon`> Enverex, no MBR
[12:39] <ShiftPlusOne> tero, *up to 72 hours.
[12:39] <Tachyon`> you just have a partition and specify it in cmdline.txt
[12:39] <Tachyon`> it'll work
[12:39] <Tachyon`> I've loaded root os from a usb hard drive on pi that way
[12:40] <Enverex> Tachyon`, Ace, so as long as the first partition is FAT16 and contains the boot stuff and a sane cmdline.txt it'll work? That's nice and easy. Will FAT32 or any other format work or is FAT16 the only supported filesystem?
[12:40] <Tachyon`> FAT32 wrks
[12:40] <Tachyon`> EXT doesn't
[12:40] <gordonDrogon> vfat - whatever that is.
[12:40] <Tachyon`> VFAT is just FAT32 with long filenames

[13:05] <japro> well in general sure, but in the context of the pi?
[13:05] <Dyskette> Benighted: oh wait, I think I see. The instability/heat comment was a reference to my pi.
[13:05] <Benighted> dyskette if you have a 'hybrid' marshall they usually use an EL34 or something similar in the drive preamp,
[13:06] <Benighted> may need replaceing

[13:06] <Benighted> japro if heat allowance is up to 65-70C on the pi, if you had something reduce the heat by say 10C you could maybe get another 15-20% increase, no?

[13:09] <Enverex> I type "linux" and Google assumes "Android". Really annoying.
[13:09] <ShiftPlusOne> https://duckduckgo.com/?q=linux problem solved.
[13:09] <Benighted> enverex it's because they try to take anything over that empowers the public
[13:10] <Benighted> startpage.com - been my homepage since they changed their privacy policy in march
[13:11] <ShiftPlusOne> actually, when I google linux, there's nothing about android. Filter bubble or did you mean something else?
[13:12] <Enverex> https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=droid+stick+T10&oq=droid+stick+T10&sugexp=chrome,mod=0&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8#hl=en&safe=off&sclient=psy-ab&q=droid+stick+T10+linux&oq=droid+stick+T10+linux&gs_l=serp.3...76481.77846.0.77969.,or.r_gc.r_pw.r_cp.r_qf.&cad=b&sei=Bc2HUK6OE4aj0QX5_oDoAw

[13:12] <Enverex> Search was "droid stick T10 linux" but it's highlighting "android" as if I'd searched for it
[13:12] <ShiftPlusOne> ah, got it
[13:12] <gordonDrogon> wow. open source on the ARM side. Neat!
[13:13] <Enverex> Quite annoyed that stick isn't linux compatible, it's only ~$65 (RPI is $50 here) considering the power
[13:13] <ShiftPlusOne> Probably a handy feature, since it's a convenient substitution for many people. If you want to make sure it's linux you can put quotes around it.

[13:17] <ShiftPlusOne> Probably a stupid question, but what actually prevents people from installing regular linux on android phones? They are running linux kernels after all. Can't you strip out all the android framework and run bash instead?

[13:19] <bede> whait, whut? no more binary blobs?
[13:19] <gordonDrogon> bede, the GPU code itself will stil lbe a binary blob most likely
[13:20] <friggle> everything that runs on the ARM is now open source
[13:20] <gordonDrogon> so treat it like a boack box, but we now have the manual on what all the knobs and levers do.
[13:20] <gordonDrogon> black*
[13:20] <friggle> and the BCM2835 is the first ARM SoC for which this is true of the graphics stack

[13:21] <SpeedEvil> of course, it's just a frame buffer.
[13:21] <gazzwi86> I have installed ffmpeg, mplayer and ivccapture
[13:22] <SpeedEvil> there is no other graphics hardware.
[13:22] <gazzwi86> i can get a snapshot from my webcam with uvccapture
[13:22] <gazzwi86> but no video stream with mplayer, it just outputs a green screen
[13:22] <gordonDrogon> wan't that true for the N900 ?
[13:22] <gazzwi86> ffmpeg just has a file downloading from my mac but no video stream even from vlc
[13:22] <gordonDrogon> but I never really looked deeply into the n900 though.
[13:22] <SpeedEvil> no, the graphics was a blob on n900

[13:28] <ShiftPlusOne> yeah, you might want to have that on the card.
[13:28] <thewanderer1> I have no idea what I'm doing - I ran a script from http://blog.kmp.or.at/2012/05/build-your-own-raspberry-pi-image/ , and apparently it has failed to provide me with a working kernel.img in the boot dir

[13:40] <Benighted> google wants to capture the linux market but they can't have it
[13:40] <Enverex> It runs Linux, it'll actually run the current normal Arm version of Ubuntu (non-modified). There's Arch available for it too
[13:40] <Benighted> Ubuntu = no longer linux
[13:40] <Enverex> Yeah I'm not a fan. I use Arch on all my machines.
[13:41] <Benighted> Canonical has already bent over for Win 8's 1984 mbr write protection
[13:41] <Benighted> I was disappointed when I heard that, so much so I wiped my Mint Cinnamon replaced with Debian

[13:55] <Benighted> Yes, I think that the other advantage is finely tuned, low resource devices make it more difficult for malware propagation, as the performance is reduced significantly. Most people have dual or quad core pc's with 4+GB of RAM which is a hackers paradise
[13:56] <gazzwi86> uvccapture can grab a snapshot but i can't get a video stream from vlc or from ffmpeg

[14:33] <clever> jelly1: yeah, thats why i didnt mention usb
[14:33] <thewanderer1> I wouldn't do that... any noise there would be catastrophic
[14:33] <clever> sata is just a single tx pair and a single rx pair, with 3 grounds for isolation
[14:33] <clever> the lcd interface is ~3-4 tx pairs, and the same for camera (rx pairs)
[14:33] <clever> in theory, it has the hardware for 2 or 3 sata ports
[14:33] * jelly1 has a synology nas which runs on arm
[14:34] <gordonDrogon> lets just cobble a generic parallel interface out of the gpio and do it that way -afterall we used to connect scsi drives to parallel printer ports... and think of the PETs disk interface - GPIB!
[14:34] <clever> so the question becomes, bitrate on those LVDS pairs, and gpu firmware to drive sata

[14:57] <gordonDrogon> still - at least one person asked about a write byte function some time back, so ...
[14:57] <gordonDrogon> it requires 2 writes to the Pi's GPIO registers - one write to write the zeros and a 2nd to write the 1's.

[15:36] <[7]> the clock recovery will kill you
[15:37] <[7]> the gpu is most certainly only designed to be the clock master
[15:38] <clever> yeah, it would need to sample the rx pins at atleast 3gig

[15:43] <thewanderer1> hmm, should playing a stream radio compressed with AAC+ be using 100% of the CPU? 95% usr, 0% idle
[15:44] <des2> not on any modern processor
[15:45] <dirty_d> thewanderer1, you sure its all from that one process?
[15:45] <thewanderer1> well, since we're in this channel, guess what processor I'm using
[15:45] <thewanderer1> dirty_d, pretty much, yeah
[15:45] <dirty_d> thewanderer1, are you using hard-float?
[15:45] <thewanderer1> mpd shows 97.8% in top
[15:45] <thewanderer1> no, soft float
[15:45] <dirty_d> thats probably why
[15:45] <thewanderer1> would I see an improvement in music playback?
[15:46] <dirty_d> i was using arch soft before and i couldnt play any video unless the audio was ac3 2 channels
[15:46] <dirty_d> now i can play DTS 5.1 ect with 50% cpu usage
[15:46] <thewanderer1> it's not like the music is tearing or anything... it just says 100% cpu usage, which is a bit worrying
[15:46] <dirty_d> which distro?
[15:46] <Enverex> Is MPD resampling?
[15:46] <thewanderer1> Debian Wheezy, I don't know if mpd is resampling
[15:47] <dirty_d> thewanderer1, how can i try what you're doing on mine?
[15:47] <Enverex> If ALSA is in play then it's probably using DMIX which will be resampling... not sure how the Debian setup works
[15:47] <thewanderer1> dirty_d, fire up mpd, mpc add http://pub2.di.fm:80/di_trance_aacplus; mpc play

[16:30] <japro> it says eth' is configured and my laptop also reports the connection
[16:30] <asdfffdsa> so now that broadcom opensourced its code (or at least mostly), does that open a whole new range of possibilities? like could we see drivers optimized for epaper screens?
[16:31] <booyaa> oooo
[16:31] <booyaa> i like your thinking asdfffdsa
[16:31] <booyaa> does ada fruit sell epaper screens?
[16:32] <des2> Yes the opening has increased the possibilities.
[16:32] <des2> Only 1/3 more to go (roughly)
[16:33] <japro> so i can ping the pi from the laptop and vice versa

[16:44] <bagpuss_thecat> what nid0 says ^
[16:44] <asdfffdsa> my dream is to have a pocketable device that has several levels of powersave modes (e.g. "basic powersave" when i'm out and about with minimal screen use--an epaper screen; ebook mode; extreme powersave mode for use as an mp3 player) with basic peripherals that keep it pocketable, and then also be able to dock it & put it in "performance" mode at home

[16:50] <DigitalYeti> the reason I ask is because if I have my Pi connected to the TV, it's a pain to connect a keyboard to it and try and use it
[16:50] <lorimer> no, you have to screen to it :)
[16:50] <DigitalYeti> so it's easier to connect via SSH

[16:50] <scummos> screen -x -r
[16:51] <Enverex> Yeah, but you're still inside a screen session, thus crap
[16:51] <scummos> the second one will just display a copy of what the first one does

[17:24] <Hexxeh> some people bitching you have to pay for them
[17:24] <Hexxeh> the alternative is you bundle the cost in the hardware
[17:24] * Lupinedk is now known as lupinedk
[17:24] <Hexxeh> if you did that, people would bitch more about that
[17:25] <Hexxeh> i'd wager that 80% of people buying these don't care for codecs
[17:25] <tripgod> no, people wouldn't buy as many RPis
[17:25] <Hexxeh> hell i've got boxes full of them, not a single one do i care about having MPEG2 codecs for
[17:25] <thewanderer1> what's the current codec situation? is the hardware for MPEG-2 embedded in the raspi?
[17:25] <Hexxeh> the GPU is capable of hardware accelerated decode of a bunch of codecs
[17:26] <Hexxeh> some of these codecs are free, in which case there's no reason that functionality can't be exposed
[17:26] <Hexxeh> some are not, in which case you can't use them unless the license fee is paid
[17:26] <Hexxeh> for example MPEG4 was bundled with the pi
[17:26] <Hexxeh> and the cost factored into the unit as far as i know

[17:27] <Hexxeh> MPEG-LA
[17:27] <Hexxeh> yeah
[17:27] <Wolfram74> but say, for physics simulation work, GPU acceleration is kind of a big deal, could someone cut their teeth on the rPi's GPU?
[17:27] <Hexxeh> honestly it amazes me that given how vocal some people are about paying the token amount for those codecs, nobody has figured some way around it
[17:28] <Wolfram74> before moving onto other chips?
[17:28] <Wolfram74> asking as a total novice
[17:28] <friggle> Wolfram74: if you can write what you want as a GLSL shader then you're good to go, but there is no e.g. opencl support
[17:28] <Wolfram74> hrmmmm, ok

[17:29] <Hexxeh> i believe it's on the wishlist, but it's a case of it'd require resources which are better directed elsewhere at the moment
[17:30] <Matt> I don't get why people complain about paying for the mpeg2 codec
[17:30] <Hexxeh> neither do i
[17:30] <Hexxeh> equal amounts of people would have complained had they have included it in the cost of the board no doubt

[17:31] <Hexxeh> just to end all the bullshit
[17:31] <Matt> meh, that's not gonna happen
[17:31] <Hexxeh> they're likely going to be making peanuts from the Pi, and it'd be a good move PR wise for them

[18:59] <muxe> Hi. I have have a webcam (046d:08d9 Logitech, Inc.

[19:53] <zgreg> sure it's not a real driver, but it's still not "worthless" as many claim
[19:55] <zgreg> well, I guess the real problem is that the press got it wrong (e.g. moronix and so on)

[20:06] <zgreg> fast graphics won't really help that much, to be honest. the cpu is the real bottleneck.
[20:06] <zgreg> even if we had top-notch 2d graphics drivers, the pi would still be a crappy desktop replacement
[20:09] <Syliss> i think if google drops the n7 8gb model price down to $100, ill sell my raspberry pi and lap dock to buy it
[20:09] <ShiftPlusOne> I am not sure how much of that is the limitation of the hardware itself and how much of that is just people running software designed for modern desktops. Perhaps people will start developing software designed with raspberry pi in mind and things might change. =/
[20:09] <ToadKing> lynx ought to be enough for anyone :P
[20:10] <ShiftPlusOne> exactly =D
[20:10] <Matt> zgreg: desktop environments used to be perfectly usable on slower systems
[20:10] <zgreg> ShiftPlusOne: well, data sets are much bigger and more complicated to process nowadays, and people have higher expectations compared to e.g. a decade ago
[20:10] <ToadKing> but yeah i don't see any of the webkit-based web browsers out there being good on the pi
[20:10] <zgreg> Matt: same for you
[20:10] <ToadKing> because webkit is big and complicated
[20:10] * Matt blames modern bloat
[20:11] <Matt> prime example:
[20:11] <Matt> 31201 matt 20 0 1868m 696m 16m S 5 23.2 345:32.27 firefox
[20:11] <Matt> 22388 matt 20 0 4782m 666m 14m S 5 22.2 662:32.48 thunderbird
[20:11] <zgreg> best example is web browsing. HTML/CSS/JS is an extremely complex mess, and modern websites make good use of all the features browsers offer
[20:11] * Matt hands zgreg a copy of netscape navigator
[20:12] <zgreg> Matt: and the sad thing is that firefox is probably the most memory efficient browser at the moment :D
[20:12] <zgreg> at least on the desktop
[20:12] <Matt> and fvwm :)
[20:12] * Matt flashes back 15 years

[20:13] <ShiftPlusOne> zgreg, I hear that a lot, but I tend to leave my browser open 24/7 with tabs used pretty much as bookmarks. After a while firefox would get really derpy and use up more and more memory. Chrome just doesn't do that. At least for me, chrome seems to be much better.
[20:14] <Matt> I used to have a pair of tektronix X Terminals
[20:14] <Matt> black and white displays
[20:14] <zgreg> ShiftPlusOne: I don't have this problem (anymore)
[20:14] <Matt> with 10Mbps ethernet
[20:14] <Matt> they were slow, but with the right WM, were actually rather useful
[20:14] <Matt> and they were silent
[20:15] <zgreg> you also have to keep in mind that many firefox addons leak memory. this problem should be mostly sorted out now as well, but not completely
[20:16] <ShiftPlusOne> hmm, fair enough

[20:18] <ShiftPlusOne> Still, that's the kind of reactive attitude which damaged IE's reputation.

[20:38] <gordonDrogon> my suspicion is they they've typod something, but I just wanted to be sure!
[20:39] <wietze> now that the video driver is opensourced (if I understand correctly); may I assume that players other than omxplayer will eventually be able to use the hardware acceleration for video playback?

[20:51] <zgreg> they are expecting too much IMHO, the gpu isn't that fast
[20:52] <BillyBag2> Can I control the volume on HDMI port?
[20:53] <Sonny_Jim> I have a strange idea. I'd like to attach my Pi to the 8K CMOS RAM used in my pinball table. I want to monitor certain memory locations (such as score) so I can use the Pi as an internet capable backend. How would I go about interfacing CMOS RAM to the Pi so I can read it?

[20:53] <cave> hi, i am currently programming with the Adafruit WebIDE, is there a possibility to commit some changes to github, which are stored at the moment local and on bitbucket.
[20:54] <rikkib> #Set output to aux 0 auto 1 aux 2 hdmi
[20:54] <rikkib> printf "Setting Audio Output to Aux Speaker.\n"

[20:54] <rikkib> printf "Setting Microphone Output Volume to Zero. (-123.50db)\n"
[20:54] <rikkib> amixer -c 1 cset numid=2 0
[20:54] <gordonDrogon> Sonny_Jim, do you want to read it at the same time as the pincall machine is running?
[20:54] <rikkib> To set the volume use the command above but on the right setting
[20:55] <gordonDrogon> if so, then it's probably not going to be possible - easilly.
[20:55] <Sonny_Jim> gordonDrogon: Yes, which is the tricky part. Was thinking of mirroring it somehow. I only need to read rather than write
[20:55] <rikkib> man amixer
[20:55] <gordonDrogon> Sonny_Jim, you'd need to put a latch and comparitor on the address-bus and a separate latch on the data bus - effectively creating a 1-byte RAM interface.
[20:56] <gordonDrogon> Sonny_Jim, then you can use the latch pulse to interrupt the Pi and arrange it to read the data latch..
[20:56] <gordonDrogon> Sonny_Jim, it's a lot of extra hardware...
[20:56] <Sonny_Jim> Plausible though?
[20:56] <gordonDrogon> Sonny_Jim, the Pi don't have enough IO pins and can't read them fast enough to do it entirley passively.
[20:56] <Sonny_Jim> It's only 8KB of battery backed RA<
[20:56] <Sonny_Jim> Ah, that was what I was fearing
[20:57] * LowValueTarget (~lowvaluet@unaffiliated/lowvaluetarget) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[20:57] <Sonny_Jim> What if it was only a few select locations in RAM I wanted to read?
[20:57] <Sonny_Jim> rather than the whole lot
[20:57] <gordonDrogon> Sonny_Jim, it all depends on the clock rate though.
[20:57] <Sonny_Jim> It's very slow (by modern standards), 6809 running at 8MHz
[20:57] <gordonDrogon> Sonny_Jim, well - an 8K Byte RAM needs 13 address lines.
[20:57] <Sonny_Jim> http://www.pinwiki.com/wiki/index.php?title=Williams_WPC#WPC_CPU
[20:57] * Sonny_Jim nods
[20:58] <gordonDrogon> Sonny_Jim, sure, but the GPIO can only be sampled at 20MHz max.
[20:58] * lunra (~ircme@ Quit (Ping timeout: 252 seconds)
[20:58] <Sonny_Jim> Right, that would be 'bare metal' reads
[20:58] <gordonDrogon> probably.
[20:58] <Sonny_Jim> TBH I don't need to read it every cycle, just poll it occasionally
[20:58] <zgreg> I have a feeling the pi is the wrong choice for this kind of stuff
[20:58] <gordonDrogon> so 13 address bits plus 8 data bits - 21 bits needed.
[20:59] <gordonDrogon> you could probably do it with an ATmega1280 or 2560...
[20:59] <zgreg> why such a huge mcu?

[21:00] <gordonDrogon> more IO pins.
[21:00] <Sonny_Jim> How many GPIO does the Model B come with?
[21:00] <zgreg> use a tiny mcu to do the raw work with critical timing, then use a pi for high-level tasks
[21:00] <Essobi> my MCU is huge in asia.
[21:00] <Essobi> :D
[21:00] <gordonDrogon> you could arrange the 13 bits of address to map to 2 8-bit registers and the data bus to map to another 8-bit register directly.
[21:01] <gordonDrogon> however it's TV time. back in an hour or so.
[21:01] <Sonny_Jim> No worries, thanks for the info gordonDrogon

[21:15] <ShiftPlusOne> you need to either buy the codec for a few follars or encode to a different format
[21:15] <axion> this is not a newer video format. mpeg2 decoding is done in software. the rpi decodes more modern video formats with the gpu. the rp foundation is selling codecs for mpeg2 if you want it in hardware
[21:15] <Matt> silly_: without licensing the mpeg2 codec, you're not going to be able to playback mpeg2
[21:16] <Matt> there's just not enough grunt in the CPU
[21:16] <silly_> ah, ok
[21:16] <silly_> how about mp4?
[21:16] <mrlespaulman> hey quick question for you guys:
[21:16] <Matt> if you pay a couple of quid, you'll get mpeg2
[21:16] <axion> depends on the implemenation of the standard
[21:16] <Matt> and it works nicely
[21:16] <axion> ie, h264 or other
[21:16] <mrlespaulman> how do I check my current CPU/GPU split?
[21:16] <Matt> or, as axion says, you can encode your video in h264
[21:17] <japro> mrlespaulman, free

[21:18] <NullMoogleCable> wait so the BCM2835 is now fully open sourced?
[21:18] <japro> it tells you what the total (cpu accessible) memory is

[21:30] <silly_> could be, i'll try aac next
[21:30] <zgreg> NullMoogleCable: well, the problems with jazelle are twofold

[22:15] <gordonDrogon> I think they've just cocked up somewhere along the line.
[22:16] <gordonDrogon> and 0002 should not be a rev 2 board - software that checks is going to really get it wrong if it relies on it and it's wrong.
[22:16] <rikkib> See Gordon has a better memory than I.

[23:06] <japro> Enverex, one of the reasons is probably that opengl carries a lot of legacy crap that would be a pain to implement
[23:06] <japro> GLES is the way cleaner api

[23:06] <rikkib> Debian 6
[23:06] <Charun> thanks
[23:06] <japro> GLES3 is pretty much OpenGL for nonexotic use cases
[23:06] <Enverex> The reason I see it as an issue is whenever people are trying to port things, it always comes up that "it'll need to be changed to to use OpenGL ES instead of OpenGL"
[23:07] <axion> gles is only what is needed, not much more
[23:07] <japro> that wouldn't be much of an issue if they coded proper OpenGL to begin with honestly
[23:07] <japro> if you consistently use "modern" opengl the porting should be trivial
[23:08] <japro> obviously if you use legacy crap like immediate mode and display lists you are in for a lot of pain

[23:45] <Tachyon`> is that the one that can take up to 36v and give any voltage out
[23:45] <Tachyon`> with the pot
[23:46] <Tachyon`> if so, that was the only option I found (china) when looking for something for my bike

[23:46] <Tachyon`> well, other than sorting something out myself
[23:46] <Tachyon`> ah yes, same sort of thing
[23:46] <Armand> That's the one, I think, someone pointed me too... but, I can't wait that long.

[23:47] <Tachyon`> I could find exactly nothing in the UK
[23:47] <Tachyon`> without buying components from maplin and soldering something up
[23:47] <Tachyon`> can you not find a cheap car cig lighter to usb phone adapter
[23:47] <Tachyon`> that might do the trick
[23:48] * jprvita is now known as jprvita|afk
[23:48] <Armand> It's frustrating, as I'm only waiting on the Pi and 5V regulator.
[23:49] <Armand> I'm using 12v from a solar setup
[23:49] <Tachyon`> can you not just use a 7805
[23:49] <Tachyon`> if it's only 12v, heh
[23:49] <Tachyon`> it could run a spectrum, I'm sure it can run a pi
[23:50] <rikkib> Armand, Why constant current to power the rpi?
[23:50] <plugwash> Tachyon`, sure if you want to waste more than half the power
[23:50] <plugwash> and need a big lump of metal to dissipate said wasted power
[23:50] <Tachyon`> did you not notice the large regulator on the board he was already looking at
[23:50] <Tachyon`> heh
[23:50] <Armand> rikkib, to be honest.. I have no idea.. I'm not great with electronics.

[23:51] <rikkib> I use this one
[23:51] <rikkib> no constant current
[23:51] <rikkib> just variable
[23:51] <Tachyon`> that's the same sort again, large regulator, I think plugwash there wants some sort of switching solution
[23:51] <Armand> Oh geez..
[23:51] * KameSense (~KameSense@fac34-5-82-239-137-15.fbx.proxad.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[23:51] <Tachyon`> but I imagine that'd be fairly expensive
[23:52] <Armand> It is, plus there is still the excessive wait time.
[23:52] <Tachyon`> you can get a 7805 from maplins
[23:52] <rikkib> I have one of those on the bench here. I tested it on the RPi yesterday and all seemed fine
[23:53] <rikkib> I run it at 5.5v giving 4.75 arcoss tp1 & tp2

[23:53] <KameSense> hi there, what brand of SD do you use ? My Kingston didn't even last 4 months
[23:53] <Tachyon`> do tp1/tp2 indicate the voltage presented to USB devices though
[23:53] <rikkib> 12v in from an old tait radio supply
[23:53] * devinus (~devinus@ Quit ()
[23:53] <Tachyon`> I'd be a bit concerned going much over 5
[23:54] <Armand> Well, I want it stable.. :)
[23:54] <rikkib> Armand, Constant current is used for led strings and charging battries

[23:54] <Armand> Ahh.. I see.
[23:55] <rikkib> and gel cells and sla
[23:55] <biberao> hi
[23:55] <Armand> It's all a bit over my head. :P
[23:55] <Armand> I know I can put it together, if I have the kit..
[23:56] <Armand> It's just knowing the right parts.

[23:59] <rikkib> Your solar cell setup?
[23:59] <rikkib> How are you charging your batteries?
[23:59] <Armand> Ok.. I'm just trying to understand this.. Why is that one no good for the Pi ? Will it damage the board, or just not work?
[23:59] <rikkib> That is where the CC CV dc-dc converters come into play
[23:59] <Armand> I have a 20W panel, and a 12v/24v regulator
