[0:25] <scorphus> I think I'm going with http://owncloud.org/
[0:26] <nid0> the owncloud software is pretty decent
[0:26] <scorphus> until now I'm doing it by hand with SFTP
[0:27] <prinler> That will run on rpi
[0:27] <prinler> ?

[0:34] <scorphus> nid0: great, thanks for such valuable info! It's good to be know my chances of wasting time are low =)
[0:34] <prinler> Web
[0:34] <scorphus> s/be know/know/ =)
[0:34] <nid0> owncloud does do that
[0:35] <Datalink> prinler, there's VLC's web interface

[0:46] * Tachyon` sighs as his system refuses to mount various partitions as it thinks the last mount date was too far into the future
[0:46] <Tachyon`> clearly it wasn't expected that multiple operating systems would access the same filesystems

[0:49] * mike007 (~mike007@50-90-179-153.res.bhn.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:49] <Tachyon`> heh, had to set correct date with date then fake-hwclock save
[0:49] <Tachyon`> then reboot and it was corrected

[0:52] * Timmmaaaayyy (~Timmmaaaa@cpe-74-73-185-27.nyc.res.rr.com) Quit (Quit: Timmmaaaayyy)
[0:52] <Datalink> Tachyon`, yeah, hwclock needs a sane time
[0:53] <Tachyon`> aye, heh, I have different cards with different operating ystems but some filesystems are on a small hard drtive that's always present
[0:53] <Tachyon`> so if I use one, then go back to the other it won't boot
[0:53] <Tachyon`> as it sees the rescue/src fs times are invalid
[0:54] * d2kagw (~d2kagw@124-168-81-119.dyn.iinet.net.au) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:54] <Tachyon`> I know why it happens, it just occurs to me it could have been better designed, heh
[0:55] <Tachyon`> is there some reason it has to abort the boot? does it make a mess of the journals if the date is wrong or something?
[0:56] <Benighted> anyone here get rom collection browser working?
[0:56] * dirty_d (~andrew@c-76-118-112-158.hsd1.ma.comcast.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:56] <Benighted> Everything seems to have imported fine, but launches a dark screen then nothing
[0:58] <Tachyon`> just seems a minor thing to produce the "UNEXPECTED INCONSISTENCY - PANIC NOW - OH WOW ARE YOU UP TO YOUR NECK IN IT" type message

[1:29] <Opinie> can I repartition a drive without losing all the contents on the partition currently in it?
[1:30] <IT_Sean> Are you changing the partition that has stuff on it?
[1:30] <Opinie> yes
[1:30] <IT_Sean> Then no.
[1:30] <Opinie> oh my...
[1:30] <plugwash> with the right tools yes you can
[1:30] <IT_Sean> Unless you are just making the 'stuff' partition bigger.
[1:30] <Opinie> nah, I actually want to reduce the stuff partitions size
[1:31] <IT_Sean> :/
[1:31] <plugwash> gparted can do that no problems
[1:31] <plugwash> at least with the filesystem types i've tried it with
[1:31] <Opinie> hmm
[1:31] <Opinie> I think I may have once done something like this with gparted successfully, but that was years ago
[1:32] <IT_Sean> I wonce successfully cancelled a print job. But, that too was years ago.
[1:32] <IT_Sean> *once
[1:32] * XedMada (~XedMada@ Quit (Ping timeout: 245 seconds)
[1:33] <Opinie> I think I'll have to buy another drive to move the contents of the stuff partition temporarily
[1:33] * prinler (~prinler@mobile-166-137-178-096.mycingular.net) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[1:33] <knoppies> Opinie, assuming that you have a contiguous free space at the end (or beginning) of your partition, you should be able to re-size it with something like gparted without a problem. I dont know if tools exist that move your data to make it possible to resize the partition (gparted might do that, I havent tried).
[1:34] <Opinie> ok
[1:34] <Opinie> thanks
[1:34] <knoppies> Opinie, regardless if you cannot afford to lose the data (say they are photographs of your kids) then I would backup the data regardless.
[1:34] <IT_Sean> aye, back up your stuffs.
[1:34] <knoppies> when playing with partitions there is always the risk that you will lose all your data.
[1:34] <knoppies> So you might want to buy that extra drive regarldess.
[1:34] <knoppies> s/reg.*/regardless/
[1:35] <Opinie> I think regardless is actually a better word than regardless
[1:35] <Opinie> *regarldess
[1:35] <knoppies> Im not sure which one you think is better now.
[1:36] <Opinie> never mind
[1:36] <knoppies> I don't know what came over me to use the word more than 4 times in that thought.
[1:36] <knoppies> It must have been the word I was thinking about.
[1:36] <Opinie> maybe it was necessary, regardless
[1:37] <knoppies> one of them I could have left out entirely. Anyway. What sort of data is on the drive? .iso files that you can re-download or are we talking about files that don't exist on the Internet?
[1:38] * geordie (~geordie@ has joined #raspberrypi
[1:38] <Opinie> knoppies: mainly files that don't exist on the internet
[1:38] * mike007 (~mike007@50-90-179-153.res.bhn.net) has left #raspberrypi
[1:38] <knoppies> Opinie, then I recommend you back them up.
[1:39] <Opinie> yeah
[1:39] <Opinie> better just stop being lazy
[1:39] <Opinie> and do that
[1:39] <plugwash> gparted does not need contiguous free space to resize partitions
[1:39] * luigy (~luigy@ool-4575e555.dyn.optonline.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:39] <plugwash> but I agree while i've never personally had gparted cause data loss i'd still strongly reccomend backups
[1:40] <Opinie> ok, thanks

[1:50] <PCLine_> Good evening everyone
[1:51] <Cheery> https://github.com/cheery/node-video/blob/master/rpi/demo.c
[1:51] <Cheery> I cut some cornels today.. particularly from EGL
[1:52] <Cheery> it takes some time to notice that when you give something to those eglCreate -things. the original handle must not be removed
[1:52] <Cheery> that isn't told anywhere
[1:52] <Cheery> or hmm
[1:52] * luigy (~luigy@ool-4575e555.dyn.optonline.net) Quit (Quit: Computer has gone to sleep.)
[1:53] <Cheery> hmm
[1:53] <Cheery> yea
[1:53] <Cheery> it's like that
[1:53] <ReggieUK> it wouldn't be fun if it was easy all the time
[1:53] <Cheery> this far I haven't seen why it should be hard.
[1:56] * notfunk (~notfunk@ip72-221-66-218.ri.ri.cox.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:57] <Cheery> I'm probably going to implement these features for now. then I'll get back to it and look at global_images again.

[2:02] <Cheery> ReggieUK: anyway what do you think about a desktop compositing library for node.js?
[2:04] <discopig> lol
[2:04] * dirty_d (~andrew@c-76-118-112-158.hsd1.ma.comcast.net) Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[2:04] <ReggieUK> I have no opinion on that
[2:05] <knoppies> http://www.wut.co.nz/images/pibomb.jpg
[2:07] <Cheery> ReggieUK: sounds bit negative :)
[2:07] <IT_Sean> Don't try getting that by airport security.
[2:07] <IT_Sean> :p
[2:07] <knoppies> IT_Sean, its a battery hooked up to a PC, its really no different from a smartphone.
[2:08] <knoppies> The USB thing is a 3G modem.
[2:08] <IT_Sean> Wheeeeeel.... Still... Most mobile phones don't have bits of wire sticiking out in randon directions :p
[2:08] <knoppies> IT_Sean, thats true.
[2:09] <knoppies> IT_Sean, I once got an RC remote for a plane through airport security. Only once did they want a second look at it in the XRay machine. I went through 4 airports with it.
[2:09] <Cheery> that picture will be used in TSA security guide
[2:09] <IT_Sean> heh
[2:09] <knoppies> Cheery, are you submitting it to TSA or are you teasing us?
[2:09] * IT_Sean submits it in the "Bomb" catagory
[2:10] <Cheery> haha. that'd be lulz
[2:10] * OmNomDePlume (OmNomDePlu@cpc20-lutn10-2-0-cust20.9-3.cable.virginmedia.com) Quit ()
[2:12] <Cheery> would anyone of you be up for little bit of crowdsourcing rounds in week or two?
[2:12] <Cheery> basicly I need to get full bindings for webgl
[2:12] <Cheery> creationx has made a base I can use
[2:12] <Cheery> but it's incomplete
[2:12] <Cheery> webgl spec is available publicly.
[2:13] <Cheery> I'd need help from people to bring it complete
[2:13] * jnd (~jenda@unaffiliated/jnd) Quit (Ping timeout: 272 seconds)
[2:14] <Cheery> I thought about dividing the spec into sections and assign them to people willing to help
[2:14] * IT_Sean (~IT_Sean@applefritter/IRCStaff/UltimateMacUser1) Quit (Quit: Linkinus - http://linkinus.com)
[2:14] <Jungle-Boogie> i wish i was clever enough to assist, Cheery
[2:15] <Cheery> it's very simple stuff, I'll provide clear instructions and check the results afterwards.
[2:15] * jthunder (~jthunder@ has joined #raspberrypi
[2:15] <Jungle-Boogie> post a reddit about it, i'm sure people will be able to participate!
[2:15] * BCMM (~BCMM@unaffiliated/bcmm) Quit (Quit: Konversation terminated!)
[2:16] <Cheery> cool idea :)
[2:16] * m8 (~mor@unaffiliated/m8) Quit (Quit: Sto andando via)
[2:17] <Jungle-Boogie> :)
[2:17] <AC`97> (:
[2:17] <Jungle-Boogie> it would beat the hell out of all the how do i posts and look what i shoved the pi into
[2:22] * Syliss (~Home@adsl-108-201-94-119.dsl.chi2ca.sbcglobal.net) Quit (Quit: Syliss)
[2:25] <knoppies> Cheery, when you say crowd sourcing do you just want man hours (so open source project) or money?
[2:25] <Cheery> man hours
[2:26] <AC`97> ponies.
[2:26] <AC`97> also, sexists.
[2:26] * djazz (~daniel@ has left #raspberrypi
[2:27] <knoppies> Cheery, if you ask again in two weeks I might be able to help, but I had some other projects of my own that I have planned to do.
[2:27] <knoppies> One of which is turn my brand new Pi into a headless always on (lower power use) server.
[2:27] <AC`97> i just got a new kindle paperwhite. need to break it in :D
[2:28] * jnd (~jenda@unaffiliated/jnd) has joined #raspberrypi

[2:28] <SpeedEvil> drop it on a rock
[2:28] <AC`97> ...
[2:29] * blkhawk is now known as blkaway
[2:29] <AC`97> so uh... i found out that the RPi's GPIO can be a good receiver.
[2:29] <knoppies> AC`97, receiver of?
[2:29] <AC`97> i hooked one up to my cb radio, and a length of wire to the other...
[2:29] <AC`97> dirty hack XD
[2:30] * gerrynjr (~gerrynjr@gentoo/user/gerrynjr) has joined #raspberrypi
[2:30] <AC`97> didn't have a long range, and there were lots of errors in the stream
[2:30] <AC`97> but it worked O.o
[2:30] <AC`97> floating GPIO pins = cool.
[2:32] <AC`97> also, i probably farked up my radio a bit by doing that
[2:33] <AC`97> (i used one RPi to control the transmit on the cb radio. that was the only connection)
[2:33] <knoppies> AC`97, I would love to get packet radio (or something digital over radio) going. But my CB radio's are those hand held ones with nothing exposed.
[2:33] * jbicha (~jeremy@ubuntu/member/jbicha) Quit (Ping timeout: 252 seconds)
[2:33] <AC`97> solenoid >:D
[2:33] <AC`97> trololol
[2:35] <AC`97> knoppies: you've seen my pi, right? :]
[2:35] <AC`97> i've stopped working on my project, since it's going to be cold soon...
[2:36] <knoppies> no I dont think I have seen it.
[2:36] <AC`97> motorcycles are only fun in summer
[2:36] <knoppies> Oh I see what you are doing with it.
[2:36] <AC`97> knoppies: http://goo.gl/sVRmG
[2:36] <knoppies> I love the heatsink.
[2:36] <AC`97> [:
[2:37] <knoppies> Do you have any blog and or description of what your trying to do with it?
[2:37] <Tachyon`> heh, people still use CB? where?
[2:37] <knoppies> The Pi on the Bike I mean.
[2:37] <knoppies> Tachyon`, all over the world.
[2:37] * geordie (~geordie@ Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[2:37] <AC`97> knoppies: well, i sorta started one... but it probably won't have much until next year
[2:38] <knoppies> Tachyon`, most of the people around here (NZ) that use CB are 4WD enthusiasts or truckers.
[2:38] <knoppies> AC`97, ok.
[2:38] <Tachyon`> it used to be popular here
[2:38] <Tachyon`> but only the truckers seem to have them now
[2:38] <AC`97> still used in California by mexicans (with their illegal linear amps) talking to people in mexico O.o
[2:39] <AC`97> and truckers too, of course
[2:39] <knoppies> AC`97, having a closer look at the heatsink I can see its been cut to size. Did you do that?
[2:39] <AC`97> also, i got stuff from japan twice in the past
[2:39] <AC`97> knoppies: yes. a file :]
[2:39] <AC`97> got plenty of splinters too
[2:39] <knoppies> that must have taken forever.
[2:39] <AC`97> indeed.
[2:40] <knoppies> Do you think the stuff from japan was relayed?
[2:40] <Tachyon`> ih lol, linear amps
[2:40] <Tachyon`> they used to be called burners here
[2:40] <Tachyon`> they were sold in local shops as ornaments
[2:40] <AC`97> O.o
[2:40] <Tachyon`> not that I had one, I seemed to get some distance with just the regulation 4W
[2:40] <AC`97> knoppies: relayed from where ??
[2:40] <knoppies> AC`97, do they use satellite dishes and other directional antannas to get their signal to mexico?
[2:40] * Takyoji[laptop] (~Takyoji@2602:100:18c5:be56:d1a:fc43:c7e5:23ab) Quit (Ping timeout: 246 seconds)
[2:41] <AC`97> knoppies: single omnidirectional antenna
[2:41] <knoppies> AC`97, I wouldnt know, but Im sure you can send the CB signal (or at least the sound waves) over the internet and then rebroadcast them on the other side of the world.
[2:41] <AC`97> knoppies: the guy who sold me his antron 99 tried to sell me his linear too...
[2:42] <knoppies> AC`97, that sounds like such a waste.
[2:42] <Tachyon`> or you could use short wave and not need the internet, ionosphere conditions permitting
[2:42] <knoppies> Tachyon`, Ive read about that before, but I don't like relying on the weather.
[2:42] <AC`97> but bouncin' is fun >:D
[2:43] <AC`97> internet relaying is cheating
[2:44] <AC`97> http://goo.gl/rn6p2 internet stealing is fun
[2:45] <knoppies> AC`97, I don't like stealing someone elses internet, their interests and mine are seldom the same. But I do want to setup a LAN between my house and someone else I know (just for the fun of it) but I don't know anyone who is within LOS of my roof.
[2:45] <knoppies> AC`97, have you done any packet radio? And is that what you are trying to achieve on the bike?
[2:46] <AC`97> knoppies: portable internet stealin' :P
[2:46] <AC`97> j/k
[2:46] <AC`97> just trying the challenge of cracking wifi while on a moving vehicle
[2:47] <AC`97> and active cracking at that, too.
[2:47] <knoppies> why would you need CB for that?

[2:48] <AC`97> because i figured out that the RPi interrupts are very sensitive
[2:48] <Tachyon`> hrm?
[2:48] <Tachyon`> what do you mean by that
[2:48] <AC`97> i could take a metal object, tap it on a ground (ethernet, hdmi, blah blah) and an interrupt would trigger
[2:48] <Tachyon`> how can an interrupt be sensitive, it interrupts or it doesn't
[2:48] <AC`97> O.o
[2:48] <Tachyon`> oh right
[2:48] <Tachyon`> that's odd

[2:50] <Tachyon`> working yes, you can apt-get it
[2:50] <Tachyon`> working well, not so much
[2:50] <Tachyon`> someone (who isn't me and understands the graphics chipset) would have to modify it for hw acceleration

[3:02] <AC`97> oh wow, i have htop installed
[3:02] <Tachyon`> I had 512MiB or so of swap on a real hard disk
[3:03] <Tachyon`> but the bloody drive is faulty and keeps powering down so I also have none now

[3:04] <Tachyon`> I chose 1.8 for that very reason
[3:04] <AC`97> that doesn't look too great for heat dispersion

[3:05] <Tachyon`> lol
[3:06] <Tachyon`> was pondering a steampunk look for it
[3:06] <Tachyon`> cogs that turn faster depending on CPU load, memory use represented by an old style pressure type gauge or something of that nature
[3:07] <AC`97> o.o
[3:07] <Tachyon`> not that there's any real point of either but it has GPIO so why not
[3:07] <AC`97> car instrument panel :P
[3:07] <Tachyon`> could use the four extras on the new one leaving main port available

[3:10] <Tachyon`> wonder how long it'll be until there's a Pi on the ISS
[3:11] <Rudeviper> lol
[3:11] <Rudeviper> I am having a major problem trying to get my RPi to accept and perform the RAM upgrade - I followed the instructions from github right up to the point of replacing certain files - problem is I can't put those files in the /boot directory and now the directory is empty except for the config.txt. - but I haven't shut it off yet so I need to know how to move those files so I can have all my
[3:11] <Rudeviper> ram and set up the split I need
[3:11] <AC`97> ^ whoa
[3:11] <Tachyon`> you've unmounted boot
[3:11] <Tachyon`> at a guess
[3:11] <Rudeviper> nope
[3:11] <Tachyon`> well why would it be empty? did you delete everything in it?
[3:11] <Rudeviper> just deleted the files in it like github said to
[3:11] <Tachyon`> oh right
[3:12] <Rudeviper> now I can't get the upgrade files in it
[3:12] <Rudeviper> lol
[3:12] <Rudeviper> DOHHHHH!
[3:12] <Tachyon`> ?
[3:12] <Tachyon`> cp?
[3:12] * comradekingu (~comradeki@ has joined #raspberrypi

[3:30] <maicod> what are you planning to do with it ?
[3:30] <AC`97> or, spools
[3:30] <AC`97> i just wanted to see what it was like inside :P
[3:30] <maicod> funny is that first the keys are made and then the factory searches the right pin length for each 'tick'
[3:30] <AC`97> indeed.
[3:30] <maicod> hahaha I've seen that on 'how do they do it'

[3:38] <AC`97> maicod: do you know how the internals of a lock works?
[3:38] <AC`97> -> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wtl2hmHZCLw
[3:38] <maicod> well the key lifts the pins and if it lifts them all in the same height (but they are different in length) the cilinder can turn
[3:39] <maicod> the key lifts the pins and if its the right key all pins are lifted at even height
[3:39] <AC`97> so i suppose you know how a lock can be picked, right?
[3:40] <maicod> ofc try to lift all pins up at the right distance
[3:40] <AC`97> yes
[3:40] <AC`97> but one at a time
[3:40] <maicod> huh but you need them all at once to be able to turn
[3:40] <Rudeviper> ok - going to switch to the Pi now and set up xchat there. Be back when I figure this one out.
[3:40] <AC`97> that's where the tension wrench comes in play
[3:41] <maicod> rudeviper: apt-get install xchat
[3:41] <maicod> what does that do?
[3:41] <AC`97> you put some force on the cylinder, trying to turn it. friction will hold the pins up
[3:41] <maicod> aha OK

[3:43] <maicod> rude yea
[3:43] <AC`97> the spooled pins try to fool the person trying to pick the lock
[3:43] <maicod> speedevil: is quassel for X or not ?

[3:45] <AC`97> maicod: even in that video, the guy has to try twice
[3:45] <geordie> the holes for the pins are never exactly in line, so one pin will pop into place, the barrel will turn slightly holding that pin above the barrel, and you pop up another pin
[3:45] <AC`97> if it was a normal lock, he'd probably get it open in 1/4th of the time
[3:45] <RudeViper> lol - don't need instructions for that
[3:46] * maicod never thought he'd learn to become a lockpicker here ;P
[3:46] <maicod> can my Pi pick locks ? :)

[3:50] <PCLine_> I have Successfully upgraded
[3:50] <RudeViper> ok - how do I do it
[3:50] <AC`97> RudeViper: mount|grep boot
[3:50] <PCLine_> I can not type but I can upgrade
[3:50] <AC`97> boot mounted?
[3:51] <RudeViper> lol\
[3:51] <maicod> what can you do with a 512 MB Pi that you cant with a 256 one /
[3:51] <maicod> ?
[3:51] <RudeViper> I am on the Pi now
[3:51] <AC`97> maicod: bigger tmpfs
[3:51] <RudeViper> better video
[3:51] <maicod> oh

[3:51] <maicod> rudeviper: welcome. you use xchat ?
[3:51] <maicod> I like it
[3:51] <RudeViper> yes - just installed it
[3:51] <PCLine_> maicod: I can -cache more on my mplayer
[3:52] <maicod> oh rite
[3:52] <RudeViper> I am on the Pi - w00t w00t w00t
[3:52] <maicod> hehe
[3:52] <RudeViper> lol
[3:52] <AC`97> psh, 16MB cache is good enough
[3:52] <AC`97> i used to use 1GB cache for mplayer on my lappotop, so my drive would turn off while i watched movie :D
[3:53] <RudeViper> I'm just getting started with it - they say it can be used for streaming video and as a media center - that is what I want to do with it
[3:53] <AC`97> ... then i replaced said drive with a 128MB SSD.
[3:53] * maicod doesnt see the immdediate reason to get another Pi :)
[3:53] <PCLine_> without -cache 128 I was getting a lot of skipping.
[3:53] <AC`97> PCLine_: 128 kilobytes? XD
[3:53] <AC`97> try -nocache
[3:53] <maicod> 128K :)
[3:54] <RudeViper> I think these things would be GREAT for alot of things - like automating certain things
[3:54] <AC`97> perhaps it was the buffering/caching that was skippin' it up
[3:54] * maicod played h264 vids fine with omxplayer streamed over wifi
[3:56] <knoppies> maicod, you could watch youtube on your Pi using VLC. I dont know how well VLC works on the Pi but it would probably be much better than trying to use FLASH.
[3:56] <maicod> OK thanks for the idea
[3:56] <maicod> knoppies u dutch?
[3:56] <AC`97> s/vlc/omxplayer/
[3:56] <maicod> what ?
[3:57] <PCLine_> Duhhhh. I should have known that. I was thinking 128 was 1/4 my 512!
[3:57] <maicod> hehehe
[3:57] <AC`97> O.o

[3:58] <maicod> ah OK cool I thought you name sounded a bit dutch and south african so thats logical
[3:58] <maicod> <--Dutch
[3:58] <maicod> we would say Knopjes

[3:58] <maicod> yeah we know ac :)

[3:58] <maicod> keep forgetting if u're canadian or american
[3:59] <RudeViper> American
[3:59] <knoppies> maicod, does it mean the same thing?
[3:59] <maicod> sorry I mean AC`97
[3:59] <RudeViper> American by Birth - Southern by the grace of God!
[3:59] <AC`97> O.o
[3:59] <maicod> knoppies: it means small buttons ?
[3:59] <DeliriumTremens> rpi-update?
[3:59] <RudeViper> no - American and Canadian are not the same
[3:59] <maicod> heheh RudeViper
[3:59] <RudeViper> No rpi update isn't the same thing
[3:59] <PCLine_> Watch out. I just expanded my rootfs and now I have more memory I can do so much more now!
[4:00] <knoppies> RudeViper, I don't know, I havent tried yet, but I have a 512mb version too so would like to know. When you first boot the debian image it gives you a menu that has an rpi-update option> I figured that might help.
[4:00] <maicod> whats the difference between American and Southern then?
[4:00] <knoppies> maicod, yes.
[4:00] <RudeViper> HAHAHAHAH!
[4:00] <maicod> knoppies: ah in hollands its Knopjes
[4:00] <knoppies> maicod, I will try remember that.
[4:00] <knoppies> can omxplayer stream videos much like vlc?
[4:00] <maicod> OK ik denk dat we elkaar wel kunnen verstaan
[4:00] <RudeViper> I tried that and via term too - but it only updates the software - I'm trying to get the hardware upgraded
[4:01] <maicod> sorry that was Dutch
[4:01] <knoppies> RudeViper, hmmm. I assume you've googled it. Thats a bit worrying I was hoping it would be easy.
[4:02] <knoppies> maicod, I no longer live in South Africa, so I don't really know Afrikaans all that well, but google translate understands you.
[4:02] <knoppies> I mean to add a wink ;)
[4:02] <RudeViper> yes I have - found 3 diferent approches so far and all three of them are missing a step I think
[4:02] <maicod> knoppies: ahaha you cheat :)
[4:02] <knoppies> maicod, I understood half of what you said.
[4:02] <maicod> knoppies: its ok :)
[4:02] <maicod> ok
[4:02] <RudeViper> How many people are using their Pi to chat?
[4:02] <maicod> knoppies: where do you live now ?
[4:03] <maicod> rudeviper: I do .(not currently)
[4:03] <maicod> RudeViper: wanna know a cool console mode msn client ?
[4:03] <knoppies> RudeViper, mine isnt on. All I did was test it works.
[4:03] <knoppies> maicod, New Zealand.
[4:03] <RudeViper> maicod - sure
[4:03] <maicod> knoppies: ah OK . it must be nice there
[4:03] <maicod> rudeviper: try centerim
[4:03] <maicod> I think its a package

[4:15] <maicod> it has been used by raspberry to see if ppl overclocked their pi so they wouldnt give them warranty on defects
[4:15] <maicod> but now overclocking is allowed (sortof)
[4:16] <maicod> I believe not everything is allowed (not sure)
[4:16] <maicod> rude: fine
[4:16] <knoppies> maicod, you can overclock if you dont up the voltage. Thats my understanding anyway.
[4:16] <maicod> aha
[4:16] <RudeViper> that is correct
[4:16] <knoppies> maicod, you know if you type in ru<tab> it will autocomplete his name to RudeViper
[4:16] <maicod> yeah but sometimes it does wrong :(
[4:17] <maicod> like ac becomes acperkins
[4:17] <knoppies> then hit tab again.
[4:17] <maicod> oh ?????
[4:17] <RudeViper> lol
[4:17] <maicod> duuuuuuuuh
[4:17] <des2> The official overclocking is allowed.
[4:17] <maicod> I didnt know that
[4:17] <des2> Rogue overclocking isn't
[4:17] <maicod> I thought I had to type more chars
[4:17] <maicod> LOL
[4:17] <maicod> and I am too lazy :)
[4:17] <knoppies> either way works.
[4:17] <RudeViper> ma
[4:17] <maicod> didnt know it cycles
[4:18] <knoppies> ru<tab><tab> is less work (in my opinion) than rude
[4:18] <RudeViper> maicod, testing now
[4:18] <maicod> but the raspi-config menu has overvolts setting too !
[4:18] <maicod> how can that then be illegal?
[4:18] <maicod> cool RudeViper
[4:18] <knoppies> maicod, I assume it is, but I don't know.
[4:18] <maicod> me neither :)
[4:18] <maicod> ask raspbi foundation :)
[4:18] <maicod> raspi
[4:18] <knoppies> maicod, I understand them giving the user the option to provided that they make it clear that it voids the warranty. Rather than try prevent the user from doing it.
[4:19] <maicod> ah lemme find the article that I read

[4:55] * sv (~Sv@unaffiliated/sv) has joined #raspberrypi
[4:55] <jmadero> lol
[4:55] <maicod> sorry others
[4:55] <Gumby> lol
[4:55] <jmadero> sorry? how dare you!
[4:56] <maicod> hahaha
[4:56] <jmadero> j/k
[4:56] <jmadero> ;)
[4:56] <jmadero> here goes my test, "please oh please wonderful 5.1 sound work"
[4:56] <maicod> jmadero: I have only one mind and 2 hands ;)
[4:56] * RudeViper is still confused and irritated
[4:56] <jmadero> anyone have a link to a cheap power source, apparently mine isn't strong enough :(
[4:56] <cyclick> do you recommend xbian or raspbmc for a xbmc ditribution?
[4:57] <jmadero> cyclick: I'm running raspbmc
[4:57] <jmadero> seems good
[4:57] <RudeViper> my pi wont run xbmc
[4:57] <des2> I'd go with the one with bmc in its name
[4:58] <maicod> jmadero: it seems tvservice -d <file> dumps a binary file that needs to be translated by some utilty
[4:58] <RudeViper> anyone been able to "SUCCESSFULLY" get their version B Pi upgraded on the 512 mb ram yet?
[4:58] <jmadero> maicod: yeah I got past that :)
[4:58] <jmadero> thanks
[4:58] <jmadero> doing my test now to see if it worked, then it's making it pretty for my wife....cords are her enemy
[4:58] <maicod> jmadero: hehe I had no time sorry otherwise I'd helped u with that
[4:58] <maicod> LOL
[4:58] <cyclick> RudeViper, you mean software upgrade?
[4:58] <jmadero> she sees one and she's just like "are you kidding me, no, absolutely no"
[4:59] <jmadero> ;)
[4:59] <RudeViper> He was busy teaching another rookie some new tricks
[4:59] <RudeViper> cyclick, no the firmware upgrade
[4:59] <jmadero> no one recommendation for cheap power supply?
[4:59] <RudeViper> some of them have 512mb ram but it isn't activated
[4:59] <knoppies> cyclick, because you can just switch SD cards, I recommend you give both a try. I know nothing about either of them but xbian sounds nicer.
[4:59] <knoppies> jmadero, I use my HTC phone charger.
[4:59] <jmadero> preferably with a small end to plug into the power strip
[5:00] <jmadero> knoppies: bought an off brand one, fail
[5:00] <jmadero> lol
[5:00] <jmadero> the brand name one is a bit steep isn't it?
[5:00] <jmadero> like $40?
[5:00] <maicod> jmadero: like those people who'd rather have no cords then a messy room
[5:00] <RudeViper> jmadero, I use a cellphone charger for mine
[5:00] <maicod> than
[5:00] <jmadero> exactly, but it just adds a new level of challenge ;) and she's worth the trouble of hiding some cords
[5:00] <maicod> jmadero: I hate it if friends ask me to help connecting stuff and start moaning about messyness of the cords
[5:00] <maicod> heh
[5:00] <knoppies> jmadero, I've seen some youtube clips of a guy stress testing a cheap one from china. Im not sure how to get a fairly cheap one that can also put out 1A at exactly 5V and have a stable voltage.
[5:01] * PReDiToR (~preditor@unaffiliated/preditor) has joined #raspberrypi
[5:01] <RudeViper> But once I get it running I am going to build a nice case and run it off of some emergency light batteries
[5:01] <cyclick> RudeViper, firmware is software isnt it? .. anyways I installed the files from https://github.com/raspberrypi/firmware/tree/master/boot and it works.. you might have to add "gpu_mem_512=128" to config.txt
[5:01] <knoppies> jmadero, its scary how crap the stuff they sell to the public can be.
[5:01] * maicod is gonna read something on the web brb
[5:02] <RudeViper> cyclick, I have tried that too - but somewhere I think I am missing a step - cause when I do the raspi-config all I see is 256
[5:02] <knoppies> cyclick, if I use the Pi headless, can I set GPU memory to 0mb? or 1mb? (I should probably google that.
[5:02] <knoppies> RudeViper, how sure are you that your board is a 512mb version?
[5:02] <jmadero> damn, now my keyboard is acting funny
[5:02] <RudeViper> knoppies, yep - absolutely
[5:03] <maicod> wow Pi's are made as a cookie of 6 together and latet cut loose : http://www.raspberrypi.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/09/2012-09-21-11.04.58.jpg
[5:03] <maicod> later
[5:03] <cyclick> knoppies, not sure, but you could try it
[5:03] * maicod wants to have a 6Pi cookie :)
[5:04] <RudeViper> I want 5 or 6 of them
[5:04] <RudeViper> lol
[5:04] <jmadero> I have 1 hour to get this done.....ah! time crunch

[5:05] <jmadero> maicod: do you have surround sound on yours?
[5:06] <maicod> huh THAT fancy ehm NO :)
[5:06] <maicod> I use the audio from the analog port
[5:06] * kcj (~casey@unaffiliated/kcj) has joined #raspberrypi
[5:06] <jmadero> here goes the test
[5:06] <jmadero> loading....
[5:07] <jmadero> 5.1 sound!
[5:07] <cyclick> do you get clicking noise when sound start and stop on the analog port?
[5:07] <jmadero> beautiful....
[5:07] <jmadero> hm, wife better not learn I just called a piece of machinary beautiful ;)
[5:08] <jmadero> (she's 5' 90 lbs.....just want to be clear I'm joking when I say stuff) haha
[5:08] <maicod> cyclick: yea
[5:08] <jmadero> ....damn, very strange
[5:08] <knoppies> RudeViper, this might also help: https://blogs.oracle.com/hinkmond/entry/oh_snap_my_rpi_was
[5:08] <jmadero> I get the music of a show, not the voices
[5:09] <cyclick> maicod, I wish there was a way to stop that.. it is pretty annoying, specially if the volume is loud
[5:11] <maicod> cyclick: yeah thats the only drawback but you apparantly haven't been a Pi user earlier on cause back then the sound driver was REALLY annoying.
[5:11] <maicod> they just need to leave the sounddriver connected all the time
[5:11] <maicod> maybe that will be done on newer distros
[5:12] <maicod> cyclick: end/begin clicks but during the song no clicks (earlier on there were clicks during songs too)
[5:12] <echelon> how much does element14|newark charge for shipping
[5:13] <cyclick> maicod, so this could be fixed in software?
[5:13] <echelon> i selected standard ups ground (2-3 days)
[5:13] <cyclick> echelon, between $0 and $20
[5:13] <maicod> cyclick: well I think it is just the disabling and enabling of the sound driver so maybe it can be 'left enabled all the time'
[5:15] <RudeViper> knoppies, thanks - going to try those now
[5:15] <knoppies> I wonder if I can get a bluetooth keybaord working on the Pi using a bluetooth adapter.
[5:15] <echelon> i'm not buying a stinkin' raspberry poop for $55
[5:15] <echelon> i'm gonna cancel that shit if they charge me $20 for shipping

[5:16] <RudeViper> my next task after this is to try and get the wireless working - lol
[5:16] <knoppies> RudeViper, Im going to try that too.
[5:16] <cyclick> knoppies, mine works, its logitech (1 usb adapter for 1 keyboard and mouse)
[5:16] <knoppies> I have a dongle but I don't know if its compatible.
[5:17] * maicod is gonna leave u pi-kiddies :)
[5:17] <echelon> 55 NZ$ = 45 US$ != 35 US$
[5:17] <RudeViper> i have read that mine is - just gotta figure out how to do it
[5:17] <maicod> laterz
[5:17] <knoppies> cyclick, ok, I was going to use one generic bluetooth adapter with a generic mini bluetooth keybaord. But Im glad that the logitech one works.
[5:17] <RudeViper> I'm a total n00b at linux
[5:17] <echelon> what's with all the discrepancy in prices
[5:17] * maicod (~a@d55059.upc-d.chello.nl) has left #raspberrypi
[5:17] <knoppies> RudeViper, Ive been using linux for 4 years now.
[5:18] <knoppies> echelon, I don't know. But the 55 includes GST (at 15%) and 'free' shipping.
[5:18] <echelon> this reflects very poorly on upton
[5:18] <RudeViper> I played with it but never really used it till now - I love this thing - lol - I'm probably gonna wind up buying a bunch of them as time goes on
[5:18] <cyclick> echelon, order more then 1, then you will save on shipping
[5:18] <echelon> that's ok
[5:19] <knoppies> RudeViper, I plan on buying a bunch of them, as I test and confirm that I can do the things that I want to do with the Pi. But I thought I would start with one.
[5:19] <jmadero> okay question, when I set audio stream to AC3.5.1 I get no voice, any ideas?
[5:19] <jmadero> if I set it to stereo, works like a charm
[5:19] <knoppies> jmadero, do you get other audio?
[5:19] <knoppies> jmadero, with it in 5.1 mode.
[5:19] <jmadero> yes, everything but voice
[5:20] <jmadero> very strange....
[5:20] <knoppies> jmadero, then the voice is in a channel that is not being mixed in.
[5:20] <RudeViper> knoppies, same here - this one is for a media center idea I have been trying to do for years - if it works then I will get another for a file server
[5:20] <jmadero> knoppies: solution?
[5:20] <RudeViper> knoppies, I have like 20 old IDE drives laying around here that I can stuff into those usb cases and make use of them
[5:21] <knoppies> RudeViper, I wouldnt use the Pi as a file server, because every IO port (except for GPIO) is limited to USB2.0
[5:21] <knoppies> jmadero, try play around in the settings of your media player and see if you can set it to mix the channels in, but other than that I have no idea. Im sorry.
[5:21] <jmadero> no worries, I'll play around
[5:21] <jmadero> that's what this thing is for right ;)
[5:21] <knoppies> jmadero, it might even be that the Pi sends them to your decoder but the decoder ignores them.
[5:21] <RudeViper> knoppies, I know -but it's for household personal use - no business - don't need massive speeds or anything like that
[5:22] * intothev01d (~intothev0@unaffiliated/intothev01d) Quit (Quit: intothev01d)
[5:22] <jmadero> how can I get a terminal using Raspbmc?
[5:22] <jmadero> so I can edit my config.txt file
[5:22] <knoppies> RudeViper, even in my personal use I want decent speed. But thats subjective. Then go for it. I like how small it is and how little power it uses.
[5:22] <RudeViper> knoppies, - my mom wants to set up an aquaponics farm and these things will be great for automating things like feeding the fish and turning pumps on and off
[5:23] <cyclick> RudeViper, using relays?
[5:24] <RudeViper> knoppies, yeah me too - I'm toying with an idea for making a completely self contained media center delio - battery powered with a screen and speakers built into a cool keyboard case - lol
[5:24] <RudeViper> cyclick, yep
[5:24] <Gumby> RudeViper: oh, I ve seen one of those.. lemme find a link...
[5:25] <jmadero> knoppies: you nailed it, receiver wasn't set for 5.1;)
[5:25] <RudeViper> I hope it isn't a video - lol

[5:26] <RudeViper> lol
[5:26] <Gumby> :D
[5:26] <RudeViper> that is funny - but yeah - but a whole lot cooler
[5:27] <knoppies> RudeViper, wont get much of a battery into a keyboard, but that sounds like its going to be an epic project. I have some ideas using relays too. Actual home automation stuff. I also want to see if I can use the Pi to turn logitech C920 (or similar) into IP Cams for an open source security system.
[5:28] * Mike-N-Go (~Mike-N-Go@ has joined #raspberrypi
[5:28] <knoppies> RudeViper, and I have ideas on using the Pi as an RGB LED controller. I just need to figure out if there is a cost effective way to make/use serial to parallel shift registers to turn the LEDs on/off.

[5:29] <knoppies> cyclick, I was thinking of trying that on the server end. Thanks for the suggestion.
[5:29] <knoppies> RudeViper, they do? Do you know what its called?
[5:29] <jmadero> I wish they had charged an extra $5 and put it towards their fund to put these in all classrooms in 3rd world countries
[5:29] <jmadero> this product is the most amazing machine I've used
[5:29] <RudeViper> if this damned upgrade works and I get the sound worked out then I can watch movies too
[5:29] <knoppies> jmadero, glad I could help.
[5:30] <jmadero> knoppies: you're the man (maybe?) ;)
[5:30] <RudeViper> knoppies, I saw it on a youtube video - it was REALLY basic stuff but it might be enough to get you started
[5:31] <knoppies> RudeViper, Another idea i have is to try use the RPi as an in-car computer. For data logging and some calculations etc. But that will have to wait a bit.
[5:32] <RudeViper> I don't think they expected this big of an explosion when they started this project - lol

[5:36] <jmadero> hm, might have just frozen mine....haha
[5:36] <knoppies> Gumby, I think on his Pi, so probably debian.
[5:36] <Gumby> which linux distro?
[5:36] <Gumby> ah, on his pi
[5:36] <RudeViper> yeah - there is no edit on my screen
[5:36] <knoppies> RudeViper, a distro (short for distribution) is a flavour of linux.
[5:37] <RudeViper> I know - at first I thought he was talking to himslef
[5:37] <Gumby> xchat on a pi? I'd probably just use irssi

[6:14] <jmadero> too bad these plugins don't work
[6:14] <jmadero> might still be buying a mini box as a media center :(
[6:14] <jmadero> ESPN plugin works!
[6:14] <jmadero> that's a plus
[6:14] <RudeViper> I know I am doing something wrong - just can't figure out what - there should be some REAL instructions around somewhere
[6:15] <jmadero> that's Linux beta version for you, once "regular users" start getting involved, instructions get better

[6:18] <Gumby> RudeViper: are you going through a usb hub?
[6:19] <RudeViper> whatever the raspbmc had - no keyboard is plugged into the pi directly
[6:19] <Gumby> is your pi getting enough power?
[6:19] <Gumby> could explain the keeyboard error(s)
[6:19] <Gumby> not enough to power the usb peripherals
[6:20] <Gumby> properly at least
[6:20] <jmadero> RudeViper: I had the issue of low power, had to plug into a better source
[6:20] <RudeViper> seems to be - runs fine otherwise - and anything else plugged into pi is through aself powered hub
[6:20] <Gumby> try going barebones first. see if the errors persist
[6:20] <RudeViper> I am plugged into 5v 1.5 amp cellphone charger
[6:21] <RudeViper> there was nothing but keyboard plugged in all three times
[6:21] <mod_eerf> keyboard plugged directly to the pi?
[6:21] <RudeViper> yes

[6:24] <Gumby> I'd try another charger/cable if you have one

[6:27] <jmadero> RudeViper: moving from Windows straight to Raspberry Pi can't be easy....
[6:27] <RudeViper> NO KIDDING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
[6:27] <RudeViper> lol
[6:27] <jmadero> lol sorry but.....might be good to dual boot on your personal computer
[6:27] <jmadero> to get used to some things
[6:27] <jmadero> and some lingo
[6:27] <jmadero> learning on a beta board is probably not a good plan
[6:28] <jmadero> I've been using Linux exclusively for half a decade
[6:28] <jmadero> and using it dual boot for 10 years
[6:28] <jmadero> and still the Pi is giving me some problems
[6:28] <jmadero> like I just froze it again ;)
[6:29] <RudeViper> I put debian on a virtualbox - just havn't had much of a chance to use it
[6:30] <jmadero> that's why I never recommend VB's
[6:30] <Netham45> So, is the support at Newark paid to be as stupid as possible?
[6:30] <jmadero> people install them and then don't use them
[6:30] <RudeViper> I'm pretty much starting from scratch after having used exclusively windows since it was invented
[6:30] <jmadero> yeah, understandable
[6:30] <jmadero> just learning on a beta machine, be prepared to get angry
[6:30] <jmadero> when I was learning Linux on Fedora 4....I broke a few things
[6:30] <RudeViper> lol
[6:30] <UnaClocker> Newark called me today to appologize.. That was nice.
[6:31] <Netham45> I've been fighting with their support, the guy seems 100% convinced that replacement == return
[6:31] <UnaClocker> I'm not bitter towards them anymore.
[6:31] <Netham45> I want a replacement, I don't want to return it
[6:31] <RudeViper> they really should come up with a course for beginners - cause everything I have seen so far isn't
[6:32] <Netham45> and he just keeps spouting off this crap about how I can only return within 60 days
[6:32] <jmadero> you won't find that with the Pi
[6:32] <jmadero> it's still beta like I said, they are busy fixing bugs
[6:32] <jmadero> you'd find that in Ubuntu or another "beginner" distro
[6:32] <Netham45> RudeViper, the pi isn't really a beginner product
[6:32] <Gumby> RudeViper: they do, its called Ubuntu :)
[6:32] <RudeViper> I mean linux in general
[6:32] <jmadero> ditto to that
[6:32] <jmadero> I used Ubuntu for about 2 years, solid distro
[6:32] <Netham45> If you're looking for easy Linux I'd definately go with ubuntu.
[6:32] <jmadero> even more so for beginners
[6:32] <jmadero> I'm now using Bodhi which is based on ubuntu
[6:32] <RudeViper> really?
[6:32] <jmadero> just a bit more advanced
[6:33] <jmadero> yes, I've transitioned at least 5 people to Ubuntu from Windows
[6:33] <Netham45> I use Bodhi on my tablet, has a nice touch interface.
[6:33] <jmadero> including my wife who hates computers
[6:33] <jmadero> (she now uses Bodhi also)
[6:33] <RudeViper> cause all I have ever heard about ubuntu from a couple of actual techs I know is that it is crap
[6:33] <jmadero> they aren't giving it a fair chance
[6:33] <jmadero> it's made with one thing in mind
[6:33] <jmadero> accessible to the "average" user
[6:33] <Gumby> RudeViper: it depends on your view of what an OS should be
[6:34] <jmadero> those guys would probably swear by Gentoo
[6:34] <jmadero> which to me, sucks
[6:34] <jmadero> I'm good enough to use it, but I refuse
[6:34] <Netham45> As far as Linux goes it's a bit dumbed down. If you need to tweak anything internal it's a pain in the ass
[6:34] <RudeViper> what about being able to play the games they put out like EXA and them
[6:34] <jmadero> spending 200 hours to set it up just isn't worht it
[6:34] <Netham45> It likes to automatically manage and control everything.
[6:34] <jmadero> blame the game developers
[6:34] <jmadero> for using DirectX crap
[6:34] <jmadero> not Linux
[6:35] <RudeViper> Actually the techs swear by redhatlinux distrobutions
[6:35] <jmadero> gah! seriously?
[6:35] <jmadero> maybe for servers
[6:35] <RudeViper> and another one - can't remember the name'
[6:35] <jmadero> they must be from the 80's

[6:35] <Netham45> CentOS or Fedora would be my guess
[6:35] <jmadero> I have heard good things about CentUS

[6:36] <jmadero> I ran Suse, didn't work for me
[6:36] <Gumby> Now I use Ubuntu for desktops and debian for servers
[6:36] <jmadero> Gumby: you using Unity?
[6:36] <Gumby> jmadero: yes
[6:36] <jmadero> that's when I ditched Ubuntu and went to Bodhi with E
[6:36] <Netham45> I couldn't stand Unity
[6:36] <jmadero> seriously
[6:36] <jmadero> felt so...childish
[6:36] <Gumby> you get used to it
[6:36] <jmadero> but gnome-shell on top of Ubuntu
[6:36] <jmadero> I liked that
[6:36] <mod_eerf> yea we use red hat 9 on many servers where I work
[6:37] <Netham45> Even on a touch interface Unity feels odd and out of place
[6:37] <mod_eerf> 12+ years old
[6:37] <Gumby> I dont really care about what my shortcut icons look like or how they perform.
[6:37] <Gumby> you have your 6-12 apps you use normally
[6:37] <Gumby> they are easily at hand
[6:37] <Netham45> I hate Unity's default scrollbars
[6:37] <jmadero> Gumby: true, I use a launcher in E for about 10 things
[6:37] <Gumby> others, you can simple do a quick search for
[6:37] <RudeViper> ok - how do you do a dual boot with windows 7 already installed on the computer? I have heard that 7 makes it damn near impossible to do unless you have the other os installed first
[6:37] <jmadero> rarely use anything else, other than a ton of terminal
[6:37] <jmadero> RudeViper: not true
[6:37] <UnaClocker> search? meh.
[6:37] <Netham45> Everything in Unity is so touch friendly, then they threw in those bastard scrollbars.
[6:37] <mod_eerf> Fedora is Red Hat
[6:37] <UnaClocker> categories..
[6:38] <jmadero> you want to install Linux after Windows
[6:38] <Gumby> Netham45: yes, they take a bit of getting used to
[6:38] <jmadero> always
[6:38] <jmadero> Windows screws up the Linux boot loader
[6:38] <jmadero> (another beautiful thing Windows does)
[6:38] <RudeViper> ok
[6:38] <des2> In general it works better when Windows is first since windows installs happily clobber evil competitive OSes
[6:38] <RudeViper> don't go anywhere you two

[6:41] <Netham45> Ah
[6:41] <Netham45> I've got a bad Pi here I'm trying to get exchanged
[6:41] <Gumby> I was hoping to use the pi as an audio appliance for a client (they'd be including them along with a subscription service). But these audio issues might make it a no go
[6:41] <Netham45> or at least ask if it's valid for exchange
[6:41] <Netham45> Gumby, try a cheap USB sound card?
[6:41] <RudeViper> Loading that page eerf
[6:41] <Gumby> Netham45: a bit of an issue as the cost of the pi is being eaten already

[6:43] <UnaClocker> I have a dead Pi.. I reversed the polarity on it into the GPIO pins.. My mistake.. Live and learn..
[6:43] <RudeViper> I was reading somewhere about adding someone to an audio group or something - and then their audio worked? can you explain that?
[6:43] <mod_eerf> RudeViper, please please backup your data beforehand
[6:43] <Tenchworks> Gumby, yeah if your using the analogue port that seems to happen, gets really annoying >.>
[6:43] <Gumby> RudeViper: that would be in /etc/group
[6:43] <mod_eerf> I always do..and peace of mind is priceless
[6:43] <jmadero> Gumby: remember, brand new Linux user
[6:43] <RudeViper> I don't have crap on here that I am worried about
[6:43] <jmadero> /etc/group means nothing ;)
[6:43] <Gumby> Tenchworks: and unfortunately analog is the only option :(
[6:44] <Gumby> jmadero: no time better to learn than the present
[6:44] <RudeViper> actually I recognize the structure a bit

[6:44] <jmadero> RudeViper: that's a good start
[6:44] <Netham45> http://pastebin.com/AmAMGfua My awesome conversation with Newark regarding a bad Pi
[6:44] <Tachyon`> no 12 month warranty legally where you live then
[6:45] <Gumby> Netham45: damn, that is sad
[6:45] <jmadero> RudeViper: looking for instructions now
[6:45] <Tenchworks> Gumby, I keep my volume a bit lower than I'd normally but pretty much resigned to having to get a usb audio thingy. just been too lazy to order one
[6:45] <jmadero> first thing is open a terminal :)
[6:45] <Netham45> Tachyon`, I'm fairly sure the 12 month warranty applies here, they just don't understand what I'm saying.
[6:46] <Tachyon`> oh, hrm, perhaps they're from india, like 3 customer services
[6:46] <Tenchworks> Netham45, OUCH >.>

[6:46] <Tenchworks> Netham45, phone them up and have them escalate you to a higher teir CS rep?
[6:47] <Netham45> Tenchworks, Yea, I requested that it be forwarded to someone higher up in the last e-mail I sent.

Lenovo told me that the laptop was out of its 1yr warranty but they would allow me to purchase the extended warranty and they'd look at the laptop. I responded saying that the claim was made 5 days before the end of the warranty period as per the receipt that was sent with it.
[6:47] <Netham45> jmadero, doesn't he need a -a in there to append to the groups instead of overwriting?
[6:47] <jmadero> Netham45: good point ;)
[6:47] <RudeViper> jmadero, oh no you don't - don't walk away after getting my interest up
[6:47] <Gumby> they responded 5 days later asying that it was out of warranty now and that they could not do anything unless I purchased the extended warranty

[6:48] <jmadero> audio group is called "audio"
[6:48] <jmadero> no quotes of course
[6:48] <Netham45> I had a secondary PSU I'd purchased for my laptop randomly die
[6:48] <Gumby> I'll never buy another Lenovo product again
[6:48] <mod_eerf> cyberciti.biz is GREAT site
[6:48] <Netham45> I had to spend a good two hours on the phone to just get to the right department to make a claim
[6:48] <RudeViper> is that what I have to do to get audio on my end?
[6:48] <mod_eerf> jmadero, great suggestion
[6:48] <Gumby> Netham45: did they deny your claim even though it was still within its warranty period?
[6:49] <Netham45> No, they fufilled it
[6:49] <jmadero> RudeViper: it's a start ;)
[6:49] <jmadero> mine worked out of box, surprised yours isn't
[6:49] <Netham45> it took like 4 weeks to get the new PSU here, but it did get here.
[6:49] <Netham45> and since I still had my main PSU it was just more of an inconvienience than an issue.
[6:49] <Gumby> I can't believe they just straight up denied to send me an RMA # even though the product was within its warranty period
[6:50] <Netham45> Mine also had a good 8 months left in the warranty
[6:50] <jmadero> RudeViper: I'm still wondering about your power supply
[6:50] <Gumby> hrm, this bodhi pi image is taking a VERY long time to write to the SD card
[6:50] <jmadero> could explain the audio also
[6:50] <RudeViper> it's a 1 am 5 v
[6:51] <jmadero> Gumby: sweet, let me know how it works when it's done ;)
[6:51] <RudeViper> amp
[6:51] <jmadero> RudeViper: doesn't matter
[6:51] <jmadero> could be not consistent
[6:51] <Gumby> RudeViper: how are you outputting audio?
[6:51] <jmadero> mine is also, it sucks
[6:51] <Netham45> I think if your PSU was bad to the point that audio was failing you'd be seeing other issues.
[6:51] <jmadero> off brand, wasn't working right
[6:51] <Gumby> HDMI or analog?
[6:51] <jmadero> Gumby: both
[6:51] <RudeViper> tried both hdmi and analog
[6:51] <jmadero> power supply is actually a real possibility
[6:51] <jmadero> off brand?
[6:51] <Gumby> if HDMI is plugged in, analog wont work by default
[6:51] <Gumby> or at least mine didnt when I tried
[6:51] <RudeViper> psu Samsung
[6:51] <Gumby> try booting with hdmi unplugged
[6:51] <Netham45> In XBMC I had to change it from HDMI to Analog then reboot to get analog out

[7:10] <RudeViper> I don't think I would have known about it but the damned thing keeps rocking my trailer and disturbing my train of thought
[7:10] <mod_eerf> i dunno...the whole idea of building a computer for OSX and having Apple potentially cause issues with your programs calling home...i say go linux
[7:10] <PReDiToR> I wish I was in Arizona.
[7:10] <des2> Get the Windows Installer....
[7:10] <mod_eerf> but thas just me
[7:10] <RudeViper> You guys know both Apple and Windows have been doing that for years right?
[7:10] <PReDiToR> Not just any old Linux. If you're gonna do it, do it properly. Gentoo!

[7:11] <mod_eerf> i am a slacker
[7:11] <RudeViper> unfortunately - I use Windows 7
[7:11] <UnaClocker> There's a great app for OSX called Little Snitch. It's a bit annoying, because EVERY app and EVERY call out on the internet pops up and asks for your permission.. But it definitely stops calls home.
[7:11] <PReDiToR> We were all noobs once, we weren't lucky enough to have our hands held tightly by Mark Shuttleworth. We had to do it the hard way.
[7:12] <Tachyon`> yeah, on machines with 1K of ram in some cases, lol
[7:12] <des2> We call that an outbound Firewall UnaClocker...
[7:12] <UnaClocker> With a handy GUI.
[7:12] <UnaClocker> :)
[7:12] <Tachyon`> although I built a replica Altair last year, 1K seems generous in comparison with what that came with
[7:12] <PReDiToR> Windows firewalls used to do that. These days you can't find one that bugs you every ten seconds =(
[7:13] <mod_eerf> i used little snitch (briefly) on my macbook pro
[7:13] <UnaClocker> It's nice, which program, what URL, what port and service, yes, no, always, never...
[7:13] <mod_eerf> that was damn annoying..but it works
[7:14] <mod_eerf> i recorded a lot with Logic Pro, so I dual boot Slackware/OSx
[7:14] <PReDiToR> I have that kind of thing on my jailbroken (4.3.3) iPhone4.
[7:14] <RudeViper> Gumby, ok should I get the newest release that will only be supported for the next two years
[7:14] <mod_eerf> but I haven't used the OSX partition for about a year
[7:14] <UnaClocker> Once you get the normal apps set to always, it calms down and is just useful.. But that first week.. Holy crap..
[7:14] <des2> People playing with the new generation of microcontrollers like the MSP430 series often have to deal with such Ram limitations.
[7:14] <RudeViper> Gumby, or should I get the slightly older one that will be supported for 5 years?

[7:24] <Tachyon`> been waiting more than a year just for keyboard/mouse support on the pandora port
[7:25] <RudeViper> looks like I do have a problem with the keyboard - gonna have to dig out some other ones tomorrow to test out
[7:25] <Tachyon`> might just be drawing too much current
[7:26] <RudeViper> it keeps sending ---------- untill I hit a different key
[7:26] <Tachyon`> I wouldn't suggest linking out the polyfuse next to the power input as that would void your warranty

[7:27] <UnaClocker> Tachyon`: I void warranties??? http://i.imgur.com/rEQIWh.jpg
[7:28] <RudeViper> won't know till I dig them all out and take a look - I might have a wireless one - think that will work without any drivers - lol
[7:28] <Tachyon`> ah lol, I menat the one near the power input though that restricts the input to 750mA
[7:29] <UnaClocker> Tachyon`: https://twitter.com/UnaClocker/status/257544396176752640/photo/1/large Don't reverse the polarity into the GPIO pins.

[7:32] <RudeViper> I finally got it to work - after 3 days of trying
[7:32] <shiftplusone> bbond007, you can void your warranty by shorting out the polyfuses or you can try a different keyboard... one that doesn't draw much current.
[7:32] <UnaClocker> bbond007: SSH into it..
[7:33] <UnaClocker> Generally, try a different keyboard. Don't use an unpowered hub, don't use a wireless keyboard.
[7:33] <bbond007> shiftplusone, even though i have the KB plugged into the hub(16-port)
[7:33] <UnaClocker> The wireless keyboard dongle draws more power than a standard keyboard..
[7:34] <shiftplusone> bbond007, the older pi has a silly design when it comes to usb power and a a 16 port usb hub is bound to be low quality.
[7:34] <Tachyon`> 16 port, christ, it must have 5 chips in it
[7:34] <UnaClocker> Yeah, true that.. 16 port would be 4 or 5 hubs daisychained interally..
[7:35] <Tachyon`> 5 since each one takes a port
[7:35] <shiftplusone> yup and pi already huas a built in hub
[7:35] <Tachyon`> except the first
[7:35] <bbond007> this is the 512, and that hub was from think geek and it looks pretty solid...
[7:35] <UnaClocker> hehe, 6 hubs later, yeah.. Plug the keyboard directly into the Pi.
[7:35] <shiftplusone> UnaClocker, +1
[7:36] <UnaClocker> Even high quality, that's a lot of lag relaying that signal through that many hubs.
[7:36] <shiftplusone> so the 512 model doesn't havy any polyfuses on the usb port?
[7:36] <bbond007> gotcha, which is the other thing backlit KB, so can't really plug it directly in, maybe i'm best off just doing the reset :)
[7:36] <Tachyon`> no, nor does my 256
[7:36] <Tachyon`> it has 0 ohm SMD resistors instead
[7:36] <des2> Right shiftplusone
[7:36] <shiftplusone> good
[7:37] <UnaClocker> The 512 model has a mounting hole instead of polyfuses.
[7:37] <UnaClocker> Figures they'd add mounting holes the day after I submitted my shield to the fab..
[7:37] <shiftplusone> is there any current limiting other than what the traces and components are capable of?\
[7:37] <Tachyon`> yes, the polyfuse?
[7:38] <UnaClocker> Still has the input polyfuse.
[7:38] <des2> The input USB power still has a polyfuse.
[7:38] <shiftplusone> still 700ma?
[7:38] <des2> Other than that, no.
[7:38] <Tachyon`> 750.
[7:38] <UnaClocker> If you're powering through that jack.. I'm not..
[7:38] <shiftplusone> ah right
[7:38] <des2> 700 design 1.1A trip.
[7:38] <Tachyon`> there's no real boundary, the resistance increases as you exceed 750
[7:39] <Gumby> hrm, bodhilinux on the pi doesn't much like me futzing with alsa when media is playing. and no matter what alsa is set to, it always starts playing (using mpg123) at the same volume
[7:40] <shiftplusone> do you think the traces can handle 2 500mA usb devices along with whatever the pi needs at full load if you short out the input fuse?
[7:40] <UnaClocker> Yes
[7:40] <Gumby> as soon as I change the volume the audio gets all crackly and distorted
[7:40] <UnaClocker> I feed 4amps into my GPIO pins, and don't power my 7 port hub.. ;)
[7:41] <des2> !
[7:41] <UnaClocker> hehehe, yeah, I void warranties.

[7:41] <shiftplusone> Void warranties? http://goo.gl/BM3P7
[7:41] <UnaClocker> diodes have voltage drops.
[7:42] <des2> UnaClocker isn't happy until chips desolder themselves.
[7:42] <PReDiToR> Not as much as routing the power through the whole board, I imagine
[7:42] <UnaClocker> hehehehe
[7:42] <bbond007> why so worried about void warranty on a $35 device?
[7:42] <UnaClocker> bbond007: EXACTLY.
[7:42] <UnaClocker> My idea of learning with my Pi is just slightly different than they had intended.
[7:43] <shiftplusone> bbond007, because it's a disclaimer worth giving so that people don't go complaining to the foundation that we broke their pi.
[7:43] <PReDiToR> Worried about warranty? Why not Zoidbeg? (\/) (\/)
[7:43] <UnaClocker> hehe, PiSmoker would be a good nick..
[7:43] <bbond007> i would like to hook the pi to an amiga 1200 clockport somehow.
[7:44] <locutox> amiga:D
[7:44] <bbond007> or pcmcia :)
[7:44] <des2> ok who let an amiga fanatic in ?

[7:45] <Tachyon`> pondering one
[7:45] <locutox> amiga is easy to emulate
[7:46] <UnaClocker> Good old 68k...
[7:46] <Tachyon`> yeah right, you try getting any modern amiga emulator to run faster than an arthritic snail on the pi
[7:46] <Tachyon`> and I think the older UAEs contain intel code so they're out too
[7:46] <PReDiToR> Technically, snails can't suffer from arthritis. No bones, you see.
[7:46] <Gumby> lmao
[7:47] <UnaClocker> I was so looking forward to building a Mame cabinet with a tiny Pi running the whole show.. Maybe now with the GPU "driver" release..
[7:47] <bbond007> Tachyon`, its great... if you are lucky enough to have a monitor that can sync to it on hdmi, (until the proper firmware is done) its a real treat
[7:47] <Tachyon`> I have a multisync
[7:47] <Tachyon`> so probably
[7:47] <Tachyon`> no HDMI but it does work with most things
[7:47] <locutox> it would be nice if someone could write a decent crt emulator for the video
[7:48] <bbond007> yeah, then you'd be good, but i read work on the firmware has been resumed..
[7:48] <UnaClocker> Someone should bitbang a VGA monitor off the GPIO pins..

[7:49] <Tachyon`> it's on the foundations site?
[7:49] <Tachyon`> under downloads?
[7:50] <bbond007> i don't think its on there yet, but i'll check again..
[7:50] <des2> I only need bold for 'man' and half the time that doesn't work anyway
[7:51] <UnaClocker> I used to play with one of these and a really old CP/M machine: http://www.vintage-computer.com/images/adm3a.jpg I wish I could find one, I'd make an adapter to plug it into the Pi's serial port..
[7:51] <Tachyon`> if you really want to generate VGA from the pi, it'd be better to add a parallax propeller to some GPIO and have that generate the terminal

[7:56] <bbond007> yeah, kind of a shame, osx is ok now i guess, but it was a huge pig for a long time and beos was fast and seemed much more efficient
[7:56] <UnaClocker> Tachyon`: Without Dennis Ritchie, there'd be no OSX...
[7:57] <Tachyon`> of this I'm very aware -.-
[7:57] <PReDiToR> Mr Ritchie's son isn't doing much for the family name. I mean, that terrible Eastenders thing is awful.
[7:57] <Tachyon`> eh?
[7:57] <Tachyon`> I don't watch eastenders
[7:57] <Tachyon`> or any broadcast TV actually
[7:57] <UnaClocker> He is to steve jobs like god is to jesus.. or something..
[7:57] <PReDiToR> Me either. But you're aware that Shane Ritchie is an actor, right?
[7:57] <Tachyon`> I wasn't but I am now, lol

[8:15] <rymate1234> so guys
[8:15] <DeliriumTremens> so
[8:15] <rymate1234> Plugged my Pi into composite
[8:15] <rymate1234> why is it 4:3 :(
[8:16] <des2> Because ?
[8:16] <des2> What format is your monitor ?
[8:16] * jnd (~jenda@unaffiliated/jnd) Quit (Ping timeout: 276 seconds)
[8:16] <des2> 4:3 is the historical composite monitor format.
[8:16] <rymate1234> its a 16:9 TV
[8:16] <des2> You can specift other formats in the config.
[8:17] <rymate1234> how? :D
[8:17] <des2> http://elinux.org/RPi_config.txt
[8:18] <des2> sdtv_aspect=1 4:3
[8:18] <des2> sdtv_aspect=2 14:9
[8:18] <des2> sdtv_aspect=3 16:9
[8:18] <des2> Better question, why are you using composit on a modern TV ?
[8:19] <rymate1234> cuz this modern TV has no hdmi :(
[8:19] <des2> What inputs does it have ?
[8:19] <rymate1234> idk
[8:20] <rymate1234> all I know is that it has composite and scart
[8:20] <rymate1234> I think it also has a PC input
[8:20] <des2> Are you French ?
[8:21] <rymate1234> Nope, why do you ask?
[8:21] <bbond007> rymate1234, they make converter to go from the rpi hdmi to vga
[8:21] <rymate1234> oh?
[8:21] <des2> Cause SCART originated in France.
[8:21] <rymate1234> How much are they?
[8:22] <bbond007> $25 usd, i'm looking up the link
[8:22] <locutox> scart, yuck my old tv used to have one of those
[8:22] <des2> SCART is also analog.
[8:22] <des2> So must not be a recent TV
[8:22] <rymate1234> des2, It's a refurbushed old widescreen TV. Its even slightly flat!

[8:26] <PReDiToR> All TVs in the UK have SCART. Several usually. Most stuff runs on it here.
[8:27] <Tachyon`> yeah, it seems that's just not used in america at all
[8:27] * rymate1234 lives in the UK
[8:27] <Tachyon`> which given NTSC you'd think they'd be looking for any excuse to add a proper RGB input
[8:27] <PReDiToR> They use NTSC, they don't care what their TV looks like, just so long as you don't have to watch a programme for more than three minutes without an advert lol
[8:28] <Tachyon`> I often wonder why sky/cable have adverts
[8:28] <Tachyon`> when you're charged for the damn channels
[8:29] <PReDiToR> To make Murdoch richer.
[8:29] <PReDiToR> And Branson
[8:29] <rymate1234> I actually like adverts
[8:29] <Tachyon`> they had a spat in about 2007 and there was no sky channels on cable for over a year

[8:30] <PReDiToR> The most used button on my remote is the mute.
[8:30] <Tachyon`> that's the point at which I told cable to stick it and stopped wtaching broadcast at all, no need now, why watch somethign where I have to be there at a specific time when I can just download it earlier and watch it at my convenience, heh
[8:30] <PReDiToR> I hate visiting houses where the TV is on and you're trying to talk to the people who live there.
[8:30] <Tachyon`> argh
[8:31] <Tachyon`> yes, and usually on some dire load of exploitative crap like x-factor
[8:31] <PReDiToR> I usually ask them to make me a coffee and turn the TV off while they're out of the room.
[8:31] <PReDiToR> I've even been known to hide the remote.
[8:31] <Tachyon`> lol
[8:31] <PReDiToR> "Dunno mate, it just turned off"

[8:43] <Tachyon`> Star Trek online, yes
[8:43] <Tachyon`> which I unwisely bought the collectors edition of
[8:44] <PReDiToR> I'd guess at non-canon
[8:44] <Tachyon`> yeah, seems the peacemaking in voyager didn't go so well after all
[8:44] <Tachyon`> ds9 in ST:O is a joke too
[8:44] <Tachyon`> you can't even enter the habitat ring
[8:44] <Tachyon`> and nothing is where it should be
[8:45] <PReDiToR> DS9 was too soapy.
[8:45] <Tachyon`> you ever seen the voyager ep where the ship gets rearranged?
[8:45] <Tachyon`> pah, DS9 was the best trek of the lot
[8:45] <Tachyon`> at least they bothered with story arcs and character development
[8:45] <Tachyon`> instead of trying to remake TOS again
[8:45] <PReDiToR> There were some good arcs, good characters and excellent eps. But it was too soapy.
[8:45] <Tachyon`> I'd still take B5 over any trek though
[8:46] <PReDiToR> I grabbed 50GB of that. It took ages to watch. But yeah, good.
[8:46] <Tachyon`> well, season 1-4, season 5 was bit weak
[8:46] <Tachyon`> but that was made as an afterthought
[8:46] <Tachyon`> as JMS thought it was being cancelled at the end of s4
[8:46] <Tachyon`> then it wasn't after all
[8:46] <PReDiToR> Oh noes, we're cancelled! We need to tie up all the loose ends.
[8:47] <Tachyon`> so the whole battle for earth taht was supposed to take teh whole of S5
[8:47] <Tachyon`> was compressed into the second half of S4
[8:47] <Tachyon`> so we got Byron etc., heh
[8:48] <Tachyon`> mind you, we were supposed to get 5 seasons of crusade and got only half a season
[8:48] <Tachyon`> with massive network interference to boot
[8:48] <PReDiToR> That wasn't special.
[8:48] <Tachyon`> ?
[8:48] <PReDiToR> There was nothing outstanding about Crusade
[8:48] <Tachyon`> how do you know, only a tenth of the story was actually seen, heh
[8:49] <Tachyon`> but I think it would have been good had it been finished and JMS not been overruled all the time
[8:49] <PReDiToR> It was episodic and you just knew that either Gaelen or the stealing woman were going to fight the Balrog every time.

[8:58] <rymate1234> seems fine for me
[8:59] <shiftplusone> rymate1234, do you use it to listen to music?
[8:59] <Gumby> Tachyon`: this project is basically a subscription service in which the hardware will be given away for free
[8:59] <Gumby> so adding any more costs is an issue
[8:59] <Tachyon`> hrm, are you putting any money back into the foundation while using the hardware to make a packet?
[8:59] <rymate1234> shiftplusone, I've used it for a youtube app
[9:00] <Gumby> Tachyon`: no idea. I'm just supplying the idea to someone
[9:01] <Gumby> but if the hardware can't do it, it is irrelevant
[9:01] <shiftplusone> the hardware can, the software doesn't (until someone fixes it)
[9:02] <Gumby> rymate1234: my issue is that there is a poping noise at the beginning and end of any audio file that is played
[9:02] <Gumby> in rasbian wheezy that is
[9:02] <Gumby> in bodhi linux there was no popping, however the audio quality was very poor

[11:07] <knoppies> brookman32k, thats not good.
[11:07] <knoppies> brookman32k, you want more like 489
[11:07] <gordonDrogon> knoppies, it will depend on how long it was since the last upgrade - this mornings appears t obe pulling 20MB.
[11:08] <gordonDrogon> so I can verify that the remote servers, etc. for doing an uptate/upgrade appear ok - for me, anyway.
[11:12] <brookman32k> maybe the shop sent me a 256MB version by accident. i think i could confirm it with the id printed on the chip, right?
[11:12] <knoppies> brookman32k, somewhere in the middle it will say 2G or 4G.

[11:29] <linuxstb> brookman32k: I'm not sure if Raspbian includes the 512MB updates yet, so you may have to do it manually (download the latest start.elf, fixup.dat and bootcode.bin to /boot/ and add e.g. gpu_mem=128 to your config.txt)
[11:30] <brookman32k> oh i see
[11:30] <linuxstb> Or use this rpi-config script people keep talking about, but I've never used it (it doesn't appear to be part of Raspbian unless I'm misunderstanding things).

[11:51] <brookman32k> what is synergy?
[11:52] <brookman32k> this? http://synergy-foss.org/
[11:52] <knoppies> brookman32k, yes.
[11:53] <knoppies> brookman32k, it shares keyboards/mice between computers over IP.
[11:53] <des2> synergy is when you mix gasoline and air and light a match
[11:53] <knoppies> you probably figured that out by now.
[11:53] <brookman32k> well probably it's easier to just access it via ssh
[11:53] <knoppies> des2, inside a combustion chamber.
[11:53] <knoppies> brookman32k, if you only work in a terminal, synergy is for GUI access.
[11:54] <el_robin> knoppies: I think it should works if you are running X on RPI
[11:54] <brookman32k> yes. i just mean for now
[11:54] <biberao> so
[11:54] <biberao> it will take 4weeks to get my pi

[14:45] <tnmoc> I am trying to fix a Pi that is used by the public (I'm in a museum), somehow the resolution has changed from 1280x1024, to 1280x720. It is running Raspbian and in the GUI monitor settings there is no option for 1024. In the config file I try to specify the resoltuion I end up a witha really thin resolution that is evn worse. Any ideas?

[14:47] <mrmoney2012> hi all with the recommended image the emory splits offered by the menu at boot don't cater for 512mb i think - ?
[14:47] <mrmoney2012> is there a way to sort that ?
[14:47] <des2> What interface is it ? HDMI ?
[14:48] <des2> mrmoney are you updated to the latest files ?
[14:48] <tnmoc> des2: HMDI to DVI. I am typing this on one that is set up int eh exact same way
[14:49] <tnmoc> I guess I could swap the SD cards to check it isn't the hardware.
[14:50] <mrmoney2012> des2: yes
[14:50] <des2> Is there a possibility someone screwed with the monitor ?
[14:50] <mrmoney2012> i did apt-get update and upgrade
[14:50] <des2> and rpi-update ?
[14:50] <mrmoney2012> then do i need to rerun the config ?
[14:51] <tnmoc> des2: Possibly, but I doubt it. I shall disconnect on here and swap the SD cards to see what happens! Thanks
[14:51] * tnmoc (~pi@88-96-169-77.dsl.zen.co.uk) Quit (Quit: Lost terminal)
[14:51] <mrmoney2012> oh no not rpi-update
[14:51] <mrmoney2012> will do that now
[14:51] <des2> It's my expeience that in public people will press buttons they shouldn't
[14:52] <des2> And resetting the monitor may be required
[14:52] <mrmoney2012> but i did select the update option in the initial menu
[14:52] <des2> mrmoney there's a bit of confusion as the method is sort of in flux
[14:53] <des2> http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=63&t=21106
[14:53] <des2> Somone posted that link regarding the 512 issue earlier. Read the whole thread.
[14:54] <des2> https://github.com/Hexxeh/rpi-update
[14:54] <des2> make sure you have and run that
[14:55] <mrmoney2012> ok ta
[14:55] <mrmoney2012> do i need to do sudo wget http://goo.gl/1BOfJ -O /usr/bin/rpi-update && sudo chmod +x /usr/bin/rpi-update
[14:55] <mrmoney2012> or just type sudo rpi-update ??? after i've updated the system
[14:56] <des2> well that long line installs rpi-update properly
[14:56] <mrmoney2012> ok

[16:25] <jelly1> O_o
[16:25] <blueslee> jelly1: flash is the missing part for me, before i buy it
[16:26] <jelly1> blueslee: what do you need flash for?
[16:26] <blueslee> jelly1: live streaming, nba basketball
[16:26] <jelly1> eek
[16:26] <jelly1> blueslee: I would use RTMP streams
[16:27] <blueslee> jelly1: i also dont like flash but the world out there uses it
[16:27] <jelly1> blueslee: in XBMC i can watch flash streams, without using falsh ;)
[16:27] <jelly1> *flash
[16:28] <blueslee> jelly1: you mean rtmp streams and others
[16:28] <jelly1> yes
[16:28] <jelly1> but that's just me avoiding flash
[16:29] <jelly1> since flash is unsupported on linux
[16:29] <blueslee> i will write the nba an email that they should drop flash:-)
[16:29] <jelly1> haha
[16:29] <jelly1> then they will switch to silverlight
[16:29] <jelly1> :P
[16:30] <blueslee> silverlight is also not dead, i kind of zombie which appears here and there

[16:32] <blueslee> the nba has an app for the i-world devices and they do not support flash, how they do the streaming there?
[16:32] <jelly1> i bet rtmp
[16:32] <jelly1> hmm what would be a smart split for XBMC?
[16:33] <blueslee> so flash is only needed for the ui, maybe ...
[16:33] <jelly1> i guess XBMC doesnt eat mem
[16:34] <blueslee> i like the xmbc and remote controls from smartphones, thats exactly what i want
[16:34] <jelly1> blueslee: i have that ;)
[16:34] <jelly1> but now its an old laptop, soon XBMC
[16:34] <jelly1> once everything is installed and downloaded ;)
[16:35] <blueslee> the problem is the content sd card, hard disk etc i dont have so much content, all i watch from time to time is internet streaming, and a lot of them is flash

[19:38] <quadmasta> my raspi boots into wheezy and then after a while it drops USB and network
[19:38] <UnaClocker> Using a powered USB hub, or plugged straight into the onboard USB ports?
[19:38] <quadmasta> I've tried both
[19:38] <quadmasta> doesn't seem any better in either configuration
[19:38] <UnaClocker> done an update/upgrade recently?
[19:39] <gordonDrogon> UnaClocker, I think with a custom GUI it'll be excellent - not really good for general purpose use though, but I'm sure these little things have a place in applications.
[19:39] <quadmasta> it's a fresh image
[19:39] <quadmasta> also, it doesn't stay stable long enough to do one from the board
[19:39] <UnaClocker> Should do an update/upgrade right away then.
[19:39] <UnaClocker> heh, that sucks.
[19:39] <UnaClocker> gordonDrogon: Yeah, I agree..

[20:28] <Rudeviper> I'm getting set up to install Ubuntu on my main computer (dual boot Windows 7) and LEARN linux - for real
[20:28] <mumbles> https://twitter.com/jjedmondson/status/262255938453532672
[20:29] <s5fs> Rudeviper: why dual boot when you can virtualize?
[20:29] <s5fs> Rudeviper: i rock ubuntu as my primary os and run win7 as a vm, but i don't do any gaming on the vm just dotnet dev. works great though.
[20:29] <swecide> Rudeviper: if you want to learn it for real, get rid of windows.
[20:30] <Fleck> mumbles on what to look in those pics?
[20:30] <swecide> in my experience people think linux is cool and all but as soon as thing starts to be hard, they boot windows
[20:30] <Rudeviper> there seems to be some opinions of limitations with virtualization - and I can't get rid of windows - I play some online games that need windows
[20:30] <atouk> d17 fried. what did you plug in?
[20:31] <stevep> Rudeviper: I'd recommend virtualbox
[20:31] * Jungle-Boogie (~Jungle-Bo@unaffiliated/jungle-boogie) Quit (Quit: Remember Jungle-Boogie)
[20:31] <stevep> if you just want to learn it
[20:31] <s5fs> virtualbox all the way
[20:31] <stevep> my company pays for vmware for me
[20:31] <stevep> i installed debian to test some things that would go on my rpi
[20:31] <stevep> works great
[20:31] <stevep> doesn't require a dual boot
[20:31] <Rudeviper> not just learn it - USE IT - I'm going to start learning to do some programming
[20:31] <stevep> you can just open a window
[20:32] <stevep> have to learn it before you can USE it :)
[20:32] <Rudeviper> yep
[20:32] <atouk> does virtualbox handle USB properly?
[20:32] <Rudeviper> I have virtualbox installed with Debian on it
[20:32] <s5fs> atouk: define 'properly' haha
[20:33] * b-pub (~b-pub@99-58-57-197.lightspeed.austtx.sbcglobal.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[20:33] <Rudeviper> that is one issue I am worried about
[20:33] <s5fs> atouk: it supports usb passthrough to hosts, i'm able to access thumbdrives and whatnot in my guests with not much trouble
[20:33] <stevep> yeah it would work
[20:33] <Rudeviper> when I am in linux mode I want ALL features and resources available - no limitations
[20:33] <stevep> you may have to tell vbox to use it
[20:33] <stevep> i can't remember
[20:33] <stevep> then i guess dual boot is your answer
[20:34] <stevep> i just love the fact that im already on my mac while im doing debian things
[20:34] <stevep> switching back and forth is as simple as minimizing
[20:34] <atouk> can you gparted a usb device with it?
[20:34] <stevep> oh and i recommend learning command line without a window system
[20:34] <Rudeviper> yep
[20:34] <stevep> i've used usb drives with my vbox
[20:34] <stevep> can't remember how to config it
[20:34] <atouk> guess that's "properly" enough
[20:34] <s5fs> atouk: i'd assume so, i've updated my iphone over usb
[20:35] <stevep> i was testing my media center app for the rpi on it
[20:35] <stevep> and plugged in my 2TB hard drive
[20:35] <stevep> im gonna github my project when it's a bit further along

[20:58] <stevep> no matter where i install them, they dont work on chromium
[20:58] <stevep> i am running the fc-cache command
[20:58] <stevep> do i need a reboot too?
[20:58] <s5fs> no idea, i run my rpi headless
[20:59] <stevep> i guess my media center gui will have to run on basic fonts too then...
[20:59] <s5fs> stevep: do you see the fonts when you run fc-list?
[21:00] <stevep> yes
[21:00] <Icoin> how i can figure if i have the 512 B version here ?
[21:00] <s5fs> stevep: seems like a good start! give it a reboot and report back, i'm curious :)
[21:00] <stevep> i will in a few

[21:03] <s5fs> i haven't done any profiling on my pi, haven't done much to it tbh, so i have no idea where the bottlenecks are, but i'm guessing 'disk'
[21:04] <obcd> x not being hardware accelerated perhaps?
[21:04] <stevep> yeah
[21:04] <stevep> that hurts
[21:04] <stevep> perhaps i need a faster sd card too
[21:04] <stevep> just got the one they sent me with the pi
[21:05] <stevep> with raspian already on it
[21:05] <obcd> sd card speed factor is usually write speed.
[21:06] * mrlespaulman (~mrlespaul@user-0c90gq3.cable.mindspring.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[21:06] <obcd> as sd cards are flash and that doesn't write very fast.
[21:06] <AC`97> false. flash writes faster than spinny hard drives.
[21:06] <AC`97> it's just sd cards that are slow :P
[21:07] <mrlespaulman> Anyone know how to get snes retroarch running fullspeed?
[21:07] <AC`97> bump up the frameskip
[21:07] <mrlespaulman> Seems the sdl audio tends to slow it down a bit
[21:07] <mrlespaulman> is there frameskip on retroarch?
[21:07] <AC`97> lower audio sample rate
[21:08] <obcd> I was refering to different class sd cards
[21:09] <mrlespaulman> So...which systems have been able to be successfully emulated/playable on the pi?
[21:09] <mrlespaulman> Obviously NES and SNES
[21:09] <obcd> unless you use the swap intens, not much is written.
[21:09] <stevep> i think they are working on hardware accelerating chromium too
[21:09] <stevep> might help
[21:09] <obcd> GBA also
[21:09] <mrlespaulman> oh nice
[21:10] <mrlespaulman> wasnt aware of that one
[21:10] <mrlespaulman> what about DOS stuff?
[21:10] <mrlespaulman> like via dosbox or something?
[21:10] <obcd> dosbox works but is slow
[21:11] <obcd> we need a hardware accelerated sdl layer....
[21:11] <mrlespaulman> I wish the ALSA worked better with Retroarch
[21:11] <stevep> then all of sudden the GPU is doing too much to have decent video playback...
[21:12] <obcd> In what occasion?
[21:12] <stevep> when everything else is hardware accelerated
[21:12] <mrlespaulman> Any fixes for the ALSA cutting out yet?
[21:13] <gordonDrogon> obcd, just using the gpu as a blitter for sdl would help...
[21:14] <gordonDrogon> one day...
[21:14] <obcd> I was thinking the same. It can be done one sdl function at a time...
[21:16] <obcd> A lot of games and emulators use sdl for their graphics.

[21:17] <gordonDrogon> it runs OK though.
[21:17] <obcd> I tested sdlbasic once, I assume that isn't yours?

[21:19] <gordonDrogon> you'll find binarys :)
[21:19] <gordonDrogon> there's 1 or 2 little embarrasing things in it that I want to tidy up before I release the source.
[21:20] <gordonDrogon> and I may have the urge/push to do so before december as I'm toying with the idea of releasing some code written in BASIC to play with my ladder board.
[21:21] <gordonDrogon> although providing a binary .deb is also on the cards.

[21:41] <Tachyon`> (and I /am/ colour blind but have no problems at all)
[21:41] <obcd> @saturation connected directly to the pi or 2 a self powered usb hub?
[21:41] <Tachyon`> is intended for a black background though, if you're using it with a white background it's bound to look pretty rubbish
[21:41] <gordonDrogon> saturation, your 3g modem is probably overloading the 5v supply.
[21:41] <saturation> obcd: directly
[21:41] <saturation> I am using nokia ac-12
[21:41] <saturation> ac-10
[21:42] <gordonDrogon> saturation, or causing spikes in it when you plug it in/out.
[21:42] <saturation> it should be over 1200mA
[21:42] <AC`97> ...
[21:42] <gordonDrogon> http://unicorn.drogon.net/lode.jpg <-- did someone say amber?
[21:42] <saturation> crapity crap
[21:42] <obcd> precisely, 3g modems are very power hungry
[21:42] <saturation> is there any "special" power suplies for raspi?
[21:43] <saturation> made for it
[21:43] <aaa801> gordonDrogon: we almost got egl on android :3
[21:43] <gordonDrogon> saturation, even if there are, then there are other factors. e.g. the 700mA polyfuse on the input..
[21:43] <saturation> gordonDrogon: hmm, version 2 also?
[21:43] <saturation> erm aa I got it
[21:44] <saturation> there was a problem in usb output 100mA etc. so there is one for input power as well?
[21:44] <obcd> You could try a split usb cable and power the stick that way.
[21:45] <obcd> there still is a 1.1A polyfuse on the input
[21:45] <obcd> and the usb current passes trough that as well.
[21:45] <saturation> yea but pi should not draw like 8000mA ?
[21:45] <saturation> erm 0.8
[21:46] * RudeViper (~rudeviper@c-69-138-101-3.hsd1.fl.comcast.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[21:46] <wej> 3g modems usually draw about 450 to 500 mA
[21:46] <RudeViper> Holla - I'm back
[21:46] <obcd> nope, 0.3 - 0.5 Amps for the Pi
[21:47] <Gumby> WB RudeViper
[21:47] <saturation> wej: and it there is input fure to limit current to 1.1A minus the 0.5A equals 0.6A so for pi that should be enough
[21:47] <saturation> well there is spike then
[21:47] * DMackey (~DMackey@ord-69-171-163-184.evdo.leapwireless.net) has joined #raspberrypi

[21:48] <saturation> put more capasitators! :)
[21:48] <obcd> you could try, but the pcb tracks are also limited.
[21:49] <obcd> so, disconnecting the stick power wire and connecting that directly to the supply

[21:49] <obcd> would be a safer solution.
[21:49] <wej> some 3g modem even draw more than those 500 mA, even though that's more USB2 needs to supply
[21:49] <RudeViper> Gumby once I get finished eating I'm gonna burn the Ubuntu disk and start loading
[21:50] <wej> what model are you using?
[21:50] <Gumby> RudeViper: cool, good luck
[21:50] <obcd> nokia ac 10
[21:50] <saturation> nokia ac-10 power adapter and 3g-modem is also from nokia, cs-17
[21:50] <rikkib> As current increases so does voltage drop. It is the low voltage that kills the RPi or makes things no work. Solution a better power supply.
[21:51] <wej> hm, ok, don't know about those nokia devices, never had one
[21:51] <RudeViper> I hope I bookmarked that from last nught
[21:51] <saturation> rikkib: but this is while I unplug the device
[21:51] <saturation> UNplug
[21:51] <stevep> boo yaa! play controls for omxplayer in a fifo!
[21:52] <stevep> but the ARM is so slow it takes like 5 full seconds before a pause actually happens
[21:52] <stevep> but whatever! my wife can use it
[21:52] <RudeViper> oh no - they are bookmarked on the Pi - not main puter - crappola
[21:52] <obcd> the ac10 is just the charger/ supply?
[21:53] <saturation> yeah
[21:53] <stevep> btw, i had to put in a usb hub that is powered to get most of my usb bluetooth and other things working properly
[21:53] <Gumby> interesting. If I use mpg123 and do "mpg123 /data/media/*.mp3" I get the audible 'pop' at the beginning and end of each track. If I instead do "mpg321 --loop 0 `ls -1 /data/media/*.mp3`" I get no 'pop' between each track
[21:54] <obcd> brb some dishes to fight with

[22:03] <Gumby> I also try Arch Linux as well, seemed to be ok but I had issues with the OS after following a bad howto
[22:03] <Gumby> the Arch path will need to be revisited
[22:03] <Gumby> its only in Rasbian Wheezy that the popping noise exists frequently between tracks
[22:04] <Gumby> the weird thing is. last night I had it playing on rasbian, no issues. let it play all night, checked in the AM, no problems
[22:04] <rikkib> All RPi base developers need a whack on the wrist I suspect

[22:09] <Gumby> how much memory do you have?
[22:09] <RudeViper> 8gb
[22:09] <Gumby> Id probably go 30GB for /, 8GB for swap, and the rest /home
[22:10] <home> no you ont
[22:10] <home> wont
[22:10] <Gumby> you could do a /var partition as well

[22:11] <Gumby> well, decide how much you want there still
[22:11] <RudeViper> have to have that for a while
[22:11] <Gumby> and please please, just in case. make sure all your important data on windows is backed up
[22:11] <Gumby> before proceeding
[22:11] <RudeViper> just out of curiosity - is there any REAL reason why I should not run this under virtual box?
[22:11] <Gumby> I dont see any
[22:12] <Gumby> not for learning
[22:12] <RudeViper> will I be able to move files between windows and linux like movies etc?
[22:12] <Gumby> yes
[22:12] * atomize (~adameyes@c-50-140-165-195.hsd1.in.comcast.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[22:12] <Gumby> it will require some setup of course

[22:12] <RudeViper> ok I have a Debian VB install - should I dump that?
[22:13] <Gumby> up to you
[22:13] <RudeViper> and go with Ubuntu then to leard
[22:13] <Gumby> you'll learn faster on debian probably
[22:13] <Gumby> lol
[22:13] * ardun (~ardun@ Quit (Quit: bye)
[22:13] <RudeViper> really? cause I have alreadyu
[22:13] <Gumby> Ubuntu does more for you automagically
[22:13] <atouk> why not just use the pi to learn on?
[22:13] <RudeViper> don't want that
[22:13] <Gumby> so your need to learn something is less
[22:13] <Gumby> if you have debian just use that
[22:13] <RudeViper> I want to KNOW how to USE linux -
[22:14] <atouk> and the pi limits that?
[22:14] <Mehhh> Rude, man-pages
[22:14] <Gumby> I think he wants an every day linux desktop to use in place of his desktop
[22:14] <tld> hmm
[22:14] <tld> model B seems like a significant step up?
[22:14] <Gumby> windows desktop
[22:14] <RudeViper> Gumby - ok have Deb 64bit - 2 proc and 1gb of ram - is that enough?
[22:15] <Gumby> RudeViper: plenty
[22:15] <Mehhh> Why didn't he pick a board with more ooooomph
[22:15] <Mehhh> MK802 II
[22:15] <atouk> arm processor with 256 meg is more than enough to lean linux....
[22:15] <RudeViper> I can change it - have a quad with 8 gb
[22:15] <RudeViper> not when you can't get it to work
[22:15] <Gumby> Mehhh: its not that the pi isnt enough. he wants to force himself to learn by freeing himself from windows (as much as possible)
[22:16] <Mehhh> The freescale iMX6 boards are cheap
[22:16] <Mehhh> Ok, so start with ubuntu and keep VMs of WinXP / 8
[22:16] <atouk> sounds like he wants to learn to drive stick, but only if it's in a ferrari
[22:16] <Gumby> lol
[22:17] <atomize> @atouk true that - you while learning linux, it may be beneficial to have processing limitations as once you run in to them amidst trying to accomplish something, one might understand something better about the relationshipo between processing power and computing capabilities in linux
[22:17] <Mehhh> I just don't understand the problem
[22:17] <Mehhh> He could even get a free vps
[22:17] <Gumby> no, he wants to drive stick but he has this auto in his garage that he wants to get rid of first :)
[22:17] <Mehhh> and learn that way
[22:17] <RudeViper> Amen Gumby
[22:18] <Gumby> instead of going cold turkey is is using a patch
[22:18] <Gumby> instead of going cold turkey HE is using a patch
[22:19] <RudeViper> I have to have windows for some things- but I'm going to use linux when I'm not playing the games that require it - and only haVE 1 machine to use for both
[22:19] <atouk> no, you have a pi ;)
[22:19] <Gumby> heh
[22:19] <Gumby> his pi also seems to have a few issues
[22:19] <RudeViper> yeah - won'
[22:19] <Gumby> but that is another story entirely
[22:20] <RudeViper> t play video or sound
[22:20] <RudeViper> lol
[22:20] <Gumby> it "will" you just have to know how to tell it to :)
[22:20] <RudeViper> true
[22:21] <RudeViper> but trying to find the information while working with it is SLOW - and the fact so much of those pages have Flash on them
[22:21] <Gumby> the guys here are somewhat correct, you could learn on your pi without the need for any other linux distro. But I get where you're coming from as well wanting to use linux as a daily driver to try and ween yourself away from windows
[22:22] <RudeViper> a good tech should know BOTH -
[22:22] <Gumby> use a flash blocker in your browser
[22:22] <RudeViper> I know windows - now it's time to learn a REAL OS

[22:23] <Gumby> s/linux/unix
[22:24] <Mehhh> he should start with a free linux VPS
[22:24] <RudeViper> nope - I wouldn't own a Mac
[22:24] <Mehhh> prob ubuntu or deb
[22:24] <RudeViper> Debian
[22:24] <Gumby> why when he can run something in virtual box?
[22:24] <RudeViper> just got to solve a small file sharing issue first
[22:24] <atouk> (I wouldn't own a mac) ok, rude just gained 10 experience/iq points
[22:24] <Mehhh> because of being able to understand without X and remote
[22:25] <Mehhh> headless, etc
[22:25] <Gumby> I'd own a Mac. But only second hand and OSX would come off of it within an hour of me owning it
[22:25] <Mehhh> Unless OSX had Py 3.3 support stock, nope.
[22:25] <atouk> what small file sharing issue?
[22:25] <Gumby> Mehhh: thats not too hard. just dont install X
[22:26] <Mehhh> That's easy for you to say, but not for him to understand
[22:26] <Mehhh> the other thing is
[22:26] <Mehhh> on a vps
[22:26] <Mehhh> you can have them erase the node
[22:26] <Mehhh> instantly
[22:26] <Mehhh> how many people have installed linux 3215435434 times in vms?
[22:26] <Mehhh> hours and hours wasted
[22:26] <atouk> lets see if we can talk him through his pi issues (looks at channel name)
[22:26] <Gumby> install once
[22:26] <Gumby> take a snapshot
[22:27] <Gumby> done
[22:27] <Mehhh> Not really, I assume he's running a HDD
[22:27] <RudeViper> not on pi
[22:27] <Mehhh> He can't compete on his home system
[22:27] <Mehhh> vs
[22:27] <Mehhh> a vps
[22:27] <Mehhh> Even in terms of management for the first steps
[22:27] * Gumby shakes his head.
[22:28] <Mehhh> or ease of use
[22:28] <Gumby> needless in my opinion, but you're entitled to yours
[22:28] <Mehhh> I'm just looking at the amount of variables, not the depth of each.
[22:29] <Gumby> RudeViper: as atouk suggested, why not work on fixing your pi. you WILL learn as you do that
[22:29] <atouk> isn't this raspberry pi channel?
[22:29] <Gumby> RudeViper: use putty from windows (or if you prefer, boot the ubuntu liveCD and use the desktop there)
[22:29] * VlanX (~sysadmin@host61-41-dynamic.6-79-r.retail.telecomitalia.it) has joined #raspberrypi
[22:30] <RudeViper> because pi is extremely slow and has some issues - need to understand some of the basics to fix that
[22:30] <Gumby> you CAN use Ubuntu without installing it
[22:30] <RudeViper> why I have debian in a vbox
[22:30] <Gumby> ok, use debian
[22:30] <Gumby> works as well
[22:30] <Gumby> fire up that VM, fire up the Pi, ssh into the Pi
[22:30] <atouk> rude, you haven't even started to learn ls, cp, mv, mkdir, sudo, etc. how can you already be complaining about speed?
[22:30] <RudeViper> ad th pi is based on debian - rightA?
[22:31] <RudeViper> actually I do know those commands
[22:31] <RudeViper> not everything yet though
[22:31] <Gumby> atouk: even if we work on his pi we are really working on #debian and not #raspberrypi :)
[22:31] <atouk> then i'm sure that the pis is a lot faster than you can read through a good linux book and play along
[22:32] <Gumby> or #linux hehe

[22:35] <RudeViper> the isn't a #linux on here that I can find
[22:36] <Gumby> my needs are few. NIC, audio output, runs linux, audio doesnt pop between tracks
[22:36] <RudeViper> and #Debian appears to DEAD right now
[22:36] <Gumby> RudeViper: your best bet is to not ask there
[22:36] <Gumby> they'll more than linkely just say something like RTFM
[22:36] <Gumby> likely
[22:37] <Gumby> Mehhh: I've found Arch to run quite fast on the Pi
[22:37] <RudeViper> not likely - I am almost certain they would

[22:44] <UnaClock_> Not following you there.. I need a python program running on one pi to ask a python program on another Pi for a variable (say an 8 bit number)...
[22:45] <atouk> one way? and how often?
[22:47] <UnaClock_> One way would be fine, probably once every minute or so.. 30 seconds minimum, I imagine.
[22:47] <Mehhh> uhhh una
[22:47] <Mehhh> you could easily use
[22:47] <Mehhh> bash/ssh or smbus
[22:47] <Mehhh> Plus there are multiple projects that aren't arch specific on git already
[22:48] <Mehhh> for something in use for say... 50 pis
[22:48] <UnaClock_> hehe, every time I ask a dificult question about python, people tell me to use bash.. ;)
[22:48] <atouk> keep it simple. pi1 writes to file, pi2 reads from file
[22:48] <Mehhh> It's not difficult
[22:48] <Mehhh> it's just more simple
[22:48] <Mehhh> You want to make something complicated that is not

[23:31] <RudeViper> ok ssh is enabled on pi - what is command to use on pi to get ip?
[23:32] <linuxstb> Anyone know how many codec license keys you can have in the same config file (comma-separated for the same codec).?
[23:32] <linuxstb> RudeViper: /sbin/ifconfig will show it
[23:32] <d3nd3> @Rude ifconfig

[23:35] <RudeViper> thanks
[23:37] <Gumby> you got the IP?

[23:45] <Gumby> you could have even skipped the VM part and used a windows ssh client called Putty
[23:45] <Hexxeh> also testing teh_orph's fast X stuff today :D
[23:46] <RudeViper> I know - but I would prefer to just be using one OS at a time - don't want to confuse things running windows and linux while I try to lear linux
