[0:00] <gordonDrogon> and since you use steps for positioning then you can't afford to skip them.
[0:00] <dirty_d> yea the software takes care of all that
[0:00] <gordonDrogon> there is a youtube video of someone driving a stepper off a Pi using the gpio command in a bash script...
[0:00] <dirty_d> you can run a test program to move it all around and back to the same point and check that its actually back to the same place
[0:00] <gordonDrogon> somewhat "sub optimal" :)
[0:01] * IT_Sean (~IT_Sean@applefritter/IRCStaff/UltimateMacUser1) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:01] <bertrik> I remember seeing tables with acceleration profiles when reverse-engineering a document scanner driver
[0:02] <bertrik> getting those wrong resulted in some funny noises from the stepper motors too :)
[0:02] <gordonDrogon> we were making it up as we went along - 25 + years ago when I last did any serious work with steppers...
[0:02] <gordonDrogon> maybe I need to get some on a Pi and see what happens.
[0:03] <gordonDrogon> Actually, I have an old XY plotter that I keepd meaning to take apart - but it works OK if I could get pens for it - it has steppers and an rs232 interface :)
[0:03] * ChanServ sets mode +o IT_Sean
[0:05] <gordonDrogon> ah well, bed time..

[0:15] <echelon> what's all this noise about having to cut the red wire
[0:15] <echelon> can someone please explain
[0:16] <Armand> The BLUE wire!! *runs!*
[0:16] <echelon> how pathetic does a device have to be to require you to cut wires to make it work
[0:16] <Armand> Grab the cat!
[0:17] * notfunk (~notfunk@ip72-221-66-218.ri.ri.cox.net) Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[0:17] <Tachyon`> the pi? no cutting is needed and it has no wires, red or otherwise
[0:17] <shiftplusone> Oh, so it doesn't even come with wires!? </troll>
[0:18] <echelon> to make it work with a lapdock
[0:18] <echelon> i keep reading you have to cut the red wire
[0:18] <_yac_> i remember when i got an electronic experimentation expansion for my Amiga. it had a tonne of wires, all fed off the printer port
[0:18] <_yac_> i think i like the Pi better

[0:20] <shiftplusone> echelon, the dock is designed for a specific phone, not for a pi. you have to make adjustments to make it work.
[0:20] <bbond007> _yac_, i created a amiga boing ball think for RPi
[0:20] <bbond007> thing
[0:21] <_yac_> aha nice
[0:21] <_yac_> i got a pretty ingenious idea from in here about what to do with ones Pi. going to try to make a solar-powered, 3G-connected, webcam server from it
[0:21] * Segway (4a592284@gateway/web/freenode/ip.74.89.34.132) Quit (Ping timeout: 245 seconds)
[0:22] <Armand> I'm already working on solar. :)
[0:22] <Armand> I have the supply set up already.. except for fuses. -_-
[0:22] <shiftplusone> there are always people working on solar. Yet to see anyone finish it.
[0:23] <Armand> Well, my solar works. :)
[0:23] <Armand> I just need the money to buy the fuses and clips.
[0:23] <shiftplusone> 24/7?
[0:23] <echelon> shiftplusone: well do you know why it's the case?
[0:23] <Armand> It will be..
[0:24] <Tachyon`> well, most people are in britain I suppose, heh
[0:24] <Tachyon`> where the sun is an infrequent visitor
[0:24] <Armand> I've got 28Ah capacity.
[0:24] <shiftplusone> echelon, yes... because it's designed for a phone... the pi is not that phone... therefore they are incompatible devices. I am not sure how much clearer this can be.
[0:24] * PCLine_ (~PC@cpe-65-31-49-107.woh.res.rr.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:25] <echelon> shiftplusone: that wasn't my question
[0:25] <echelon> i asked why i need to cut the red wire to use the accessory usb port
[0:26] <shiftplusone> echelon, can you link me to where you are reading that?
[0:26] <Tachyon`> red is power (5v) usually
[0:26] <Tachyon`> perhaps there's some reason why they shoudln't be connected together
[0:26] <shiftplusone> echelon, yeah what Tachyon` said. I don't think you have to, but it's to prevent the pi from drawing power and to let the hub supply the power instead.
[0:27] <shiftplusone> (the dock has a hub built in)
[0:27] <echelon> http://rpidock.blogspot.com/
[0:28] <echelon> hmm ok
[0:28] <shiftplusone> echelon, but yes, you're right in that the pi's usb support is not all that it could be.
[0:29] <echelon> i need to find a micro usb female to usb type A male
[0:29] <bircoe> anyone know where to find Crimp Connectors like these in 2x13?
[0:29] <bircoe> http://littlebirdelectronics.com/products/01-254mm-crimp-connector-housing-2x10-pin-5-pack
[0:29] <bbond007> really, this thing dows not have enough cpu to play mp3s with qmmp? anyone know of an winamp type thing that works?
[0:30] <shiftplusone> bircoe, checked element14/farnell?
[0:30] <bircoe> I have
[0:30] <bircoe> well e14
[0:30] <bircoe> migth check RS
[0:30] <shiftplusone> strange... they seem to have everything.
[0:31] <bircoe> they had them in 2x12 (24 pins) then the next jump was to a 36pin version
[0:31] * jnd (~jenda@unaffiliated/jnd) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:31] <shiftplusone> ah
[0:31] * int3nz0r (~int3nz0r@86.86.66.141) Quit (Quit: Textual IRC Client: http://www.textualapp.com/)
[0:31] <shiftplusone> so.... why not littlebird itself then?
[0:32] <bircoe> cos the biggest they have is 2x10
[0:32] <shiftplusone> 2x13 sounds like a very non-standard value =/
[0:33] <bircoe> it is!
[0:33] <shiftplusone> maybe get a bigger one and trim it down?
[0:33] <bircoe> which is why it's astounding the foundation chose it!
[0:33] <bircoe> that was my next plan, 2x14 and a few seconds on the bench grinder!

[0:37] <bircoe> shiftplusone, I think i found what I'm looking for... well close enough anyway
[0:37] <bircoe> http://www.ebay.com/itm/5-Pcs-2x13-Double-Row-26-Pins-PCB-Female-Header-2-54mm-/140827537501?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item20c9f9b05d
[0:38] <shiftplusone> Hmm, I am sure you have your reasons for not using a ribbon cable
[0:38] <bircoe> the plan is to make a custom fly lead
[0:39] <bircoe> sort of like this
[0:39] <bircoe> http://a.pololu-files.com/picture/0J1708.600.jpg?1bdf6a4027adaec68cacbcbd5a0af404
[0:39] * Haaninjo (~anders@85.8.55.65) Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[0:39] <bircoe> plus the ebay ones can be soldered to a PCB!
[0:39] <bircoe> add on boards!
[0:39] <shiftplusone> ah, got it
[0:40] <sambenj> bircoe: like so? http://shop.ciseco.co.uk/k002-slice-of-pi-o/
[0:41] <sambenj> or more http://shop.ciseco.co.uk/slice-of-pi-add-on-for-raspberry-pi/
[0:41] <sambenj> but they also have 2x13 headers - albeit slightly more expensive than those you found on ebay
[0:41] <bircoe> similar... i have soem other ideas tho

[0:42] * CO|Douche is now known as CaptainOblivious

[1:13] * IT_Sean clicks
[1:14] <IT_Sean> How does one normally communicate w/ this stuff?
[1:15] <schinken> i've found this page, where someone uses this with his raspberry (http://raspberrypi.homelabs.org.uk/) but i cant figure out, which wires he uses

[1:15] <sambenj> GPIO4 schinken
[1:16] <sambenj> from a little googling
[1:16] <IT_Sean> I'm not familiar with it, sorry. ::shurg::
[1:16] <IT_Sean> :p
[1:16] <schinken> sambenj: where do you have the information from?
[1:16] <sambenj> http://raspberrypi.stackexchange.com/questions/1225/how-to-use-a-ds18b20-temperature-sensor-in-my-pi
[1:16] <shiftplusone> http://elinux.org/File:GPIOs.png is this what you're after?
[1:16] <sambenj> 1 wire on GPIO 4 is now supported by official kernel (update from Aug 23) so any distribution that is using it will have this supported. You have to update the kernel however (ensure it's based on kernel 3.2). Then insert wire and w1-therm modules.
[1:16] <sambenj> - from that site
[1:16] <schinken> i think im blind
[1:16] <PredaGR> hello people, while I set 16MB for GPU, Raspbian reports back 232MB, that means it is missing 24MB instead of 16, any idea?

[1:24] <echelon> ok, i got a female micro usb to 2 male micro usb splitter
[1:25] <echelon> if the raspberry poop's power source draws full 5V from it, i shouldn't have to worry about the accessory port drawing more power, right?

[1:29] * datagutt (~datagutt@unaffiliated/datagutt) Quit (Quit: Computer has gone to sleep.)
[1:29] <TheSeven> "accessory port"?
[1:29] <TheSeven> and you're mixing up voltage and current it seems
[1:30] <schinken> sambenj: big thx
[1:31] <echelon> TheSeven: i'm using it with a lapdock
[1:31] <echelon> since the power source on the rpi doesn't handle data, i'm using a microusb splitter
[1:31] <echelon> so i would just have to use one port
[1:32] <echelon> on the lapdock
[1:32] <echelon> but there's supposed to be an issue with the accessory usb port
[1:32] <_deXter_> WOOT!
[1:32] <_deXter_> So I replaced my Microsoft keyboard with a Logitech one, and it's working great! ^_^
[1:33] <echelon> as it tries to draw power as well
[1:33] <echelon> uhm.. were you expecting different results?
[1:33] <_deXter_> Someone should really paste that RPi HCL all over the web
[1:33] <_deXter_> I mean like, everywhere.
[1:33] <shiftplusone> hcl?
[1:34] <_deXter_> Hardware Compatibility List
[1:34] <shiftplusone> ah
[1:34] <_deXter_> I mean, who would imagine that something as simple as a keyboard could have compatibility issues..
[1:34] <plugwash> The trouble with hardware compatibility lists is that just because hardware looks the same and has the same model number printed on it doesn't mean it is the same :(
[1:34] <TheSeven> you mean the list of linux usb device drivers that can handle dwc_otg buggyness?
[1:34] <lunra> I'm actually very surprised my Razer Blackwidow works perfectly.
[1:34] <_deXter_> http://elinux.org/RPi_VerifiedPeripherals#Working_USB_Keyboards
[1:35] <lunra> I should add it to the list, hey...
[1:35] <_deXter_> TheSeven, It's got nothing to do with Linux, it's the RPi
[1:35] * Hopsy (~Hopsy@unaffiliated/hopsy) Quit (Quit: KVIrc 4.0.4 Insomnia http://www.kvirc.net/)
[1:35] <_deXter_> Because the "faulty" keyboard works just fine on all my desktop distros..
[1:35] <TheSeven> "... that can handle dwc_otg buggynes"
[1:35] <chithead> for microsoft keyboards, they need some special kernel option. and the rpi default kernel config has it as module

[1:36] <TheSeven> dwc_otg is the pi-specific part that comes into play (and screws things up) here IMO
[1:36] <_deXter_> hmm
[1:37] * bbond007 (~ogopogo@adsl-65-8-196-34.mia.bellsouth.net) has joined #raspberrypi

[2:23] <echelon> why
[2:23] <echelon> it doesn't heat up?
[2:24] <bircoe> becuase theres a RAM chip on top of the CPU
[2:24] <shiftplusone> and heating up doesn't really reduce performance
[2:24] <bircoe> you'd only be cooling the RAM which doesn't get that hot
[2:24] <echelon> oh
[2:24] <bircoe> if you could get it to boot at 1.2 or 1.3ghz then maybe!
[2:24] <sambenj> shiftplusone: the opposite in fact :)
[2:25] <kjs> bircoe: they keep asking me for my stuff, im like no - i still use it (one day).
[2:25] <shiftplusone> sambenj, well... Up to a point >.>
[2:26] <lunra> Is there a good reason why these chips -won't- run at xGHz when the same process technology ghas yielded processors that do?
[2:26] <sambenj> shiftplusone: before the magic smoke escapes
[2:27] <plugwash> bircoe, I don't think any lego ever took 8 AAs
[2:28] <sambenj> mindstorms rcs took 6 AAs
[2:28] <sambenj> rcx*
[2:28] <bircoe> may have been an exaggeration... but it felt like it everytime you had to change them!
[2:29] <kjs> christ python 2.7 on centos, is a bitch
[2:29] <kjs> might have to build an rpm
[2:29] <plugwash> sambenj, as has most other lego electric stuff for a long time
[2:30] <plugwash> the old technic control center used 6 Cs and the new small power functions battery box uses 6 AAAs but those are exceptions
[2:30] <sambenj> plugwash: ah, that was the last set i had :)

[2:36] <DomasoFan> hi all. just tried the recent raspbian image again with my class 10 sd card. and this is the errors i got when resizing the stuff with raspi-config: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/1598766/pi_issue.txt
[2:36] * maicod is looking for a 5V/2A power supply for the Pi with micro usb plug or with a female USB-A socket (I got the right cable). If you're satisfied with yours (I want a 2A) recommend it to me :)
[2:36] <DomasoFan> now the pi doesn't boot. can that be fixed?
[2:37] * garduino (~privatela@207.245.236.58) has joined #raspberrypi
[2:37] <plugwash> maicod, i'm not sure there is much point. The main input polyswitch will go before you reach 2A
[2:37] <garduino> has anyone installed vnc on rpi?
[2:37] <ralphsaunders> I'm building a little internet radio, and I'm wondering what I should do for speakers. Is it better to take a set of speakers apart, or buy the parts and assemble some?
[2:37] * plugwash is sure loads of people have installed vnc on the rpi
[2:37] <bircoe> dexter... that guy looks dangerous with electronics!
[2:37] <plugwash> but isn't one of them
[2:38] <_deXter_> bircoe, :)
[2:38] <maicod> plugwash: ofcourse but I just mean one thats not weak/unstable. what amperage should I look for ?
[2:38] <garduino> ralphsaunder ... are you building quality or lowend?
[2:39] <plugwash> maicod, hmm, not sure, my personal Pi has a 5V 2.5A PSU hooked up to the GPIO header
[2:39] <maicod> DomasoFan: have you got linux installed on a pc/laptop and have an sd-card reader in that computer ?
[2:39] <ralphsaunders> garduino: I'm leaning towards the higher end of the spectrum if my budget can allow it.
[2:39] <garduino> it would really depend on how much money you want to spend on speakers... in some cases it will save you money by buying bulk speakers and taking them apart in other cases you can buy quality components and build your own boxes and crossovers
[2:39] <maicod> plugwash: LOL so thats even higher than 2 A :)
[2:40] <bircoe> plugwalsh, the point is to not use a PSU that is very close to it's limits which results in voltage drop anytime some decent load is applied to it.
[2:40] <shiftplusone> lunra, after some researching it seems like a lot of it is power vs performance tradeoff as well as RF interference and heat dissipation.
[2:40] <_deXter_> ralphsaunders, If you're aiming for the higher end, you should also consider getting a decent USB soundcard, because the onboard one is really crap.
[2:40] <garduino> have you heard any speakers that you feel are good... just find out which parts are in them... and source the parts
[2:40] <maicod> bircoe: thats why I asked if someone uses and can show me a shop with a neat 2A psu
[2:40] <ralphsaunders> garduino: I'm thinking I'm going to go through probably 3-4 prototypes, so bulk might not be an option :/
[2:40] <plugwash> maicod, specifically i'm using the PSU which came with http://cpc.farnell.com/1/1/56475-hub-3x-usb-ethernet-blkgrey-psg90189.html
[2:40] <maicod> ag OK
[2:40] <maicod> ah
[2:41] <ralphsaunders> _deXter_: ah thanks, I hadn't considered that
[2:41] <shiftplusone> lunra, but I haven't been able to find what's actually different in the designs other than the clock frequency.
[2:41] <bircoe> maicod, I did this to my Pi...

[2:41] <bircoe> run it with a 5v 3A supply
[2:41] <ralphsaunders> garduino: I'll do that, thank you :)
[2:41] <bircoe> works better than any USB based supply
[2:41] <DomasoFan> maicod: yeah i do.
[2:42] <ralphsaunders> _deXter_: Do you have any guidance on what qualities I should look for in a soundcard?
[2:42] <maicod> bircoe: hehe yeah then normal chargers with these round pins will fit ;)
[2:42] <SpeedEvil> ralphsaunders: it should be green.
[2:42] <SpeedEvil> or orange.

[2:42] <garduino> if I am building a project... I look at the toy store or dollar store for things that have the parts... much cheeper than a parts store
[2:42] <garduino> but that is for low end
[2:42] <maicod> DomasoFan: best is you restore a new image to the card and then install gparted on your computer and use that to resize the partition
[2:42] <bircoe> ralphsaunders, I have one of these, nice quality at a resonable price
[2:42] <bircoe> http://us.store.creative.com/Creative-Sound-Blaster-XFi-HD-Sound/M/B004275EO4.htm
[2:42] <ralphsaunders> Thank you bircoe
[2:43] <ralphsaunders> :O Pricey
[2:43] <ralphsaunders> nice though
[2:43] <bircoe> no that's in the low to mid range of the spectrum
[2:43] <ralphsaunders> dang, guess I am going for the very lowend then
[2:43] <bircoe> if you want expensive look at this bad boy :)
[2:43] <bircoe> http://www.asus.com/Multimedia/Audio_Cards/Xonar_Essence_One/
[2:43] <maicod> DomasoFan: gparted works easy
[2:43] <bircoe> they are ~$500
[2:43] <shiftplusone> lunra, ah and I've actually been taught this but forgot, the tiny wires have a capacitance associated with them so there is also that time it takes for changes in voltage levels to propogate.
[2:44] <ralphsaunders> garduino: I think I may be going that route :<

[2:49] <bircoe> and more to the point listened using a quality amplifier and speakers?

[2:50] <bbond007> it pops whenever it starts to play a sound
[2:50] <ralphsaunders> wow really?
[2:50] <bircoe> ralphsaunders, the fact that it's inside the SoC?
[2:51] <bbond007> personally, id get a audio extractor for hdmi before buying USB sound
[2:51] <_yac_> you can make a soundcard with a handful of resistors and some pins :)
[2:51] <ralphsaunders> That sounds more attractive, as I won't be using the HDMI port
[2:51] <bbond007> you can still use it

[2:55] <ralphsaunders> Might be the better route to pursue
[2:55] <ralphsaunders> _yac_: hehe
[2:55] <bbond007> if i was worried about quality i'd use a HDMI receiver
[2:55] <_yac_> what is your ultimate target for the audio, ralphsaunders ?
[2:56] * monkeycoder (~monkeycod@178.121.121.84) Quit (Ping timeout: 245 seconds)
[2:56] <ralphsaunders> In terms of quality, it's never going to play anything over 320kbps. So I guess I want it to sound as good as when I plug a $40 pair of speakers into my MBP
[2:56] <bbond007> sounds fantastic with RPi, i was watching total recall with AC3 on the RPI... movie sucked, but sound was good. kate beckensale is sporty,.,,
[2:57] <ralphsaunders> There's a new total recall? o_O
[2:57] <DeliriumTremens> unfortunately

[3:27] <maicod> sure does :)
[3:27] <maicod> china suckers :)
[3:27] <UnaClocker> Yeah, but he already said the USB devices are getting power from the hub, including coffee warmers.. ;)
[3:28] <ralphsaunders> UnaClocker: hdmi would be about the same?
[3:28] <maicod> and hair dryers :)
[3:28] <bbond007> http://www.welookdoyou.com/fufme/index.shtml.html
[3:28] <UnaClocker> HDMI is a digital signal that gets decoded, there's not even enough power exchanged to light an LED, typically.
[3:29] <bbond007> thats going to use a lot of power :P
[3:29] <ralphsaunders> So really, my only option is going to be some tiny mylar speakers
[3:29] <garduino> just use external power for your speakers
[3:30] <ralphsaunders> external power for the pi... and the hub... and the speakers
[3:30] <ralphsaunders> that's becoming a bit of a mess :p
[3:30] <UnaClocker> I have some USB powered speakers, use power from the hub..
[3:30] <maicod> bbond007: omg http://www.welookdoyou.com/fufme/faq-use.html
[3:30] <UnaClocker> They sound like crap though.
[3:30] <bbond007> maybe you can run a lot of that stuff off one PS
[3:30] <ralphsaunders> Unless I could build a circuit that'll take power and split it?
[3:31] <bbond007> get a 8 port USB hub with 2A, then power everything from the USB hub....
[3:32] <bbond007> i did try that, it worked fine
[3:33] <bbond007> i used one port to power the pi, one 2 to power a HD...
[3:33] <ralphsaunders> I think the hub I've got can do that
[3:33] <ralphsaunders> I'm just wondering if I'll be able to move away from that down the road

[3:40] <garduino> and good reminder that I can edit files that way... but would sure like to learn how to do it in linux... this will all take time I know
[3:40] <garduino> root terminal is the one to use right
[3:40] <bbond007> you don't want to learn form me, i'd just use "joe"
[3:41] <bbond007> sudo joe /boot/config.txt
[3:41] <bbond007> make change
[3:41] <bbond007> ctrl-k x
[3:41] <maicod> bbond007: is joe easier than nano?
[3:41] <bbond007> i like it, its a wordstar clone, and you can get a help screen with control-k h
[3:42] <maicod> aha oh its for X ?
[3:42] <maicod> I prefer console :)
[3:42] <bbond007> no, console
[3:42] <maicod> oh ok
[3:42] <UnaClocker> I love nano..
[3:42] <maicod> me too
[3:42] <maicod> UnaClocker: mcedit is goo too
[3:42] <bbond007> i like the editor, but if i was used to nano i'd just keep using that
[3:42] <maicod> good
[3:42] <maicod> ofc bbond007
[3:42] <maicod> u use what u learnt to use
[3:43] * felipealmeida (~user@mvx-187-16-79-187.mundivox.com) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[3:43] <bbond007> yeah
[3:43] <maicod> sometimes it sucks cause pico is now nano :)
[3:43] <bbond007> and i had to use wordstar, so when i started using linux i found joe
[3:43] <maicod> but the Pi has alias for it
[3:43] <garduino> sudo joe does not work for me... command not found
[3:44] <bbond007> sudo apt-get install joe
[3:44] <maicod> oh its not installed then. you use raspbian wheezy ?
[3:44] <ralphsaunders> oh my, it's 2:44 am
[3:44] <garduino> yes

[3:44] <maicod> its that one !

[3:45] <ralphsaunders> reminds me of an episode of the simpsons..
[3:45] <bbond007> then everything is control k something
[3:46] <bbond007> you can edit 2 files split screen and move between them with ctrl-k n
[3:46] <bbond007> thats kinda cool
[3:47] <ralphsaunders> use vim already
[3:47] <bbond007> :)
[3:47] <UnaClocker> bbond007: Yeah, that's a cool feature.
[3:47] <bbond007> vim started on amiga
[3:47] <ralphsaunders> aw yiss
[3:47] <maicod> vim=vi ?
[3:47] <ralphsaunders> Well, vi I'd assume
[3:47] <bbond007> ya, vim is more of the mainstream vi now i think
[3:47] * maicod never understood how to quit it :)
[3:47] <ralphsaunders> pretty much
[3:47] <ralphsaunders> :q
[3:48] <maicod> yeah I know now :)
[3:48] <ralphsaunders> :p
[3:48] <maicod> it has a help screen now huh
[3:48] <bbond007> at least its standard on most distros, i always have to install joe
[3:48] <maicod> it shows the quit command on that
[3:48] <bbond007> i know enough to edit something in vi though
[3:48] <maicod> I've never liked it
[3:49] <maicod> too rudimentary
[3:49] <bbond007> it can do a lot of stuff...
[3:49] <maicod> I believe ya

[3:50] <ralphsaunders> emacs can do anything if you programme it to
[3:50] <UnaClocker> I hate python..
[3:50] <ralphsaunders> *program
[3:51] <ralphsaunders> wtf UnaClocker ?
[3:51] <ralphsaunders> python ftw
[3:51] <bbond007> i'm like, i just use a separate email and editor :P
[3:51] <UnaClocker> I just want it to read a couple temp sensors, and run a couple stepper motors.. It's a 5 minute job on an Arduino???

[3:52] <UnaClocker> ;)
[3:52] <ralphsaunders> :p
[3:53] <maicod> UnaClocker: why not use your arduino then :P
[3:53] <lunra> shiftplusone: Oh my, I'm so sorry, I didn't see that you had replied... thankyou for the information!
[3:53] <UnaClocker> Arduino with ethernet costs more than a Pi.. :)
[3:53] <bbond007> another obscure editor i liked to use is xwpe which is a boaland IDE clone, like turbo c, turbo pascal
[3:53] <bbond007> borland
[3:54] <UnaClocker> Mmm, I loved Turbo Pascal.
[3:54] <maicod> UnaClocker: yeah the shields cost dearly
[3:55] <bbond007> UnaClocker, i did apt-get xwpe, but it not use the mouse, i dunno if i needed GPM or something installed... its no fun without mouse support
[3:55] <UnaClocker> I never used a mouse in TP..
[3:56] <UnaClocker> Tap Alt, tap F, tap S, Alt, F, x...
[3:56] <bbond007> oh, you shopuld totally check it out then... its a pretty convincing clone, i used to even use it with debugging
[3:57] <UnaClocker> I just started messing with Geany this week, I'm digging it.. Kinda wondering why the Arduino IDE sucks so bad after using it..

[4:08] <zkjellberg> Android has an official YouTube app
[4:08] <zkjellberg> Sorry, Netflix app that isn't Silverlight
[4:08] <bbond007> it works on some android devices that support DRM. anyway there is supposed to be a 4.0 android for RPi...
[4:08] <bbond007> yeah, its an app
[4:08] <zkjellberg> Android 4.0 build is poor due to graphic driver issues I hear.
[4:08] <zkjellberg> Not sure if the latest open source news about the graphics will improve that.
[4:08] <zkjellberg> Some said it still is missing badly needed kernel modules to really get Android functional
[4:09] <UnaClocker> Android is a bastardization of Linux.
[4:09] <UnaClocker> Like putting a fat suit on an olympic athlete and then sending them off to swim..
[4:09] <bbond007> but on mac or pc it uses sliverlight and as far as i know it does not support linux at all.
[4:10] <zkjellberg> Yup, no Linux support. They were supposed to make an HTML5 client to fix that but just never happened.
[4:11] <garduino> if netflix works on android which is linux... why wont it work on linux (which is linux)
[4:11] <bbond007> zkjellberg, yeah, i don't know about the state of android on the RPI, but that is probably the best bet for netflix, and even then they support devices on a cace by case basis depending on the DRM, so its a real long shot. i was able to get it working on a nook color
[4:11] <UnaClocker> Android isn't really Linux, they just want you to think it is.
[4:11] <UnaClocker> It's less Linux than iOS is BSD Unix.
[4:12] <zkjellberg> garduino: Android features DRM for Netflix which is why they support it.
[4:13] <bbond007> some specific android vendors feature DRM
[4:14] <bbond007> i think thats the whole point of why its only on some devices

[6:24] <bircoe> i know a bit...
[6:25] <jmadero> bircoe: my question is quite simple ;)
[6:25] <jmadero> so I'm using xbian, all I want is to share my external to user "joel"
[6:25] <jmadero> because that user is on xbian and on my laptop
[6:25] <jmadero> so I thought that just having user = joel would be enough, but it won't connect still
[6:26] <bircoe> paste your config to pastebin or something...
[6:26] <zynx> anyone ever seen this? error while loading shared libraries: libEGL.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory - it's xbmc related and arose after installing retropie
[6:27] <jmadero> how can I copy it all (sshing into the machine, using nano)
[6:27] <bircoe> cat the file instead

[6:56] <cyclick> for example if I mount //server/dir to /home/pi/media/dir1, and I type ls /home/pi/media after the share got disconnected that is when I get the 15 minute delay
[6:57] <cyclick> (using cifs)
[6:58] <cyclick> there must be a timeout that is missing somewhere
[6:58] <jmadero> so server/dir is the pi?
[6:58] <jmadero> no you're mounting something to the pi?
[6:58] <jmadero> I'm mounting the pi to my laptop, think you're doing reverse
[6:58] <cyclick> yes mounting to the pi
[6:59] <jmadero> I'm using my pi as my server
[6:59] <cyclick> oh ok
[7:00] <cyclick> what do you use for storage on your pi server?
[7:00] <jmadero> shoot, changed a minor thing and now it's failing again
[7:00] <jmadero> two externals going through a hub
[7:00] <cyclick> ok
[7:00] <jmadero> only other problem is xbian refuses to respect drive labels
[7:00] <jmadero> so they mount as usb and usb1

[7:08] <jmadero> he looked exhausted during his interview on the 2nd day
[7:08] <piney0> they say wednesday
[7:08] <cyclick> they were on top of things for this hurricane it looks like

[7:09] <piney0> yea, way better with this than katrina
[7:10] <piney0> the're calling for another storm with 50-60mph winds middle week here, so thats the next big hurdle

[7:10] <piney0> yea, agreed
[7:15] <cyclick> jmadero, those 2 have the same path?
[7:15] <jmadero> I just changed the 1st one to the 2nd one, I was able to browse and what not fine with 1st config, second one I couldn't
[7:15] <jmadero> I just want it to not be public
[7:16] <jmadero> paranoid for safety ;)-
[7:16] <jmadero> basically I want user "joel" to have permissions, no one else
[7:16] <cyclick> ok, I get it now
[7:17] <jmadero> I can feel that I'm close, just can't get the last piece of the puzzle together
[7:17] <cyclick> you have the same user in windows?
[7:17] <jmadero> I don't use Windows ;)
[7:17] <jmadero> I have the same user on my laptop nix machine yes
[7:18] <cyclick> why do you use samba then?
[7:18] <jmadero> I know I can avoid samba, just comfortable with it ;)
[7:18] <jmadero> I was going to try openssh but wasn't sure if Pi coudl do it
[7:18] <cyclick> if you are confortable with it then why do you need help;)
[7:18] <jmadero> what I want is my machine to mount the externals identical to the pi
[7:18] <jmadero> and then share the .xbmc folder
[7:18] <cyclick> ssh works great with the pi
[7:18] <jmadero> so that I can go between living room and bedroom with shows/movies and what not
[7:19] <jmadero> so you'd recommend openssh to mount them?
[7:20] <cyclick> look at NFS or sshfs
[7:20] <jmadero> ah, then it'll wait until tomorrow
[7:20] <jmadero> damn, really thought that this would be easy, I'm going to write a how to for the pi when I get some time
[7:21] <jmadero> piney0: good luck to you
[7:21] <jmadero> cyclick: maybe tomorrow I'll be asking more questions
[7:21] <cyclick> if you really samba I'm sure you are very close
[7:21] <jmadero> mount drives identical, mount pi's .xbmc to my laptops .xbmc
[7:21] <jmadero> then I should be able to stop a movie in the living room, and continue it on my laptop
[7:22] <cyclick> but I find it strange to use samba if you have no windows machine
[7:22] <jmadero> in the bedroom
[7:22] <jmadero> if I'm not mistaken

[7:22] <jmadero> cyclick: yeah, I used to go between Windows and Nix, my wife used to use Windows
[7:22] <jmadero> now she's also a Linux user
[7:22] <jmadero> last few years
[7:22] <jmadero> never switched away from samba
[7:22] <_deXter_> Anyone here use OpenELEC?
[7:24] <cyclick> jmadero, I havent used xmbc very much.. I didnt know it could do that, I might try it thanks;)
[7:25] <cyclick> _deXter_, you should ask your real question
[7:26] <jmadero> cyclick: it's just an idea that came to mind ;) I mean the config holds the library data and current play position
[7:26] <_deXter_> cyclick, My real question is, does OpenELEC have a built-in auto updater or do I have to manually download the image every time..
[7:26] <jmadero> so I don't see why it wouldn't work
[7:27] <cyclick> jmadero, there should be no problem if your player can accept those parameters as arguments..
[7:28] <jmadero> cyclick: well I'll experiment more tomorrow, keep putting off my law school personal statement....haha off to bed now

[9:14] <Thermoelectric> I'm having issues with booting to the GUI, tried to be as specific as I could be.... http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=21854
[9:15] <Jungle-Boogie> my initial reaction would be try a faster SD card
[9:15] <Jungle-Boogie> what power source are you using?
[9:15] <Jungle-Boogie> how many miliamps is it?
[9:16] <Thermoelectric> A wall wart for a powered hub. Rated at 5V 1A. I've measured the voltage during boot (TP1-TP2) and it does not drop below 5.04V.
[9:16] <Jungle-Boogie> good job
[9:17] <Thermoelectric> So a class 4 card could be causing the issues?
[9:17] <Jungle-Boogie> this was posted about 30 minutes ago on the forums?
[9:17] <Thermoelectric> I posted it a few days ago...
[9:17] <Jungle-Boogie> oh, my mistake, i just noticed the time
[9:18] <Jungle-Boogie> yes, i'm using class 6
[9:18] <Jungle-Boogie> san disk ultra 8 gig class six
[9:18] <Jungle-Boogie> also, you can try writing the image again.
[9:18] <Jungle-Boogie> are you using dd?
[9:19] <Thermoelectric> Yeah, I used dd. Atleast twice for two Raspbian images.
[9:20] <Thermoelectric> First time it did boot to the GUI and seemed to work apart from having issues with the keyboard I was using.
[9:20] <Thermoelectric> But most of the times it kept getting stuck on boot.
[9:23] <Thermoelectric> Also, the verified peripherals page on the Wiki lists the Lexar 8GB SDHC class 4 cards as good, leading me to assume that it's not too slow?
[9:27] <cyclick> Thermoelectric, make sure your SD card is not bad?
[9:27] <Thermoelectric> Are there utilities to test that or is it just a replace it and see thing? (The only other cards I have on hand are class 2)
[9:28] <knoppies> I keep running out of space on my 2Gig SD card with raspbian. I have to clear /var/cache/apt/archives everytime I want to update. I currently have less than 200MB free.
[9:28] <knoppies> I backup the .deb files using sftp in case I re-image, so I dont have to download them all again.

[10:15] <bircoe> Thermoelectric, the class of card is unimportant... I have a Pi running on a class 2 card and it's just fine, slow to boot but still works without issue.
[10:15] <Thermoelectric> I thought as much.
[10:16] <bircoe> could be a dodgy card
[10:17] <bircoe> I have an 8GB Sandisk Ultra Class 6 here that works in everything except my SD card reader... that card read also has no issue with every other SD card i own.
[10:17] <bircoe> so it's something with that card.
[10:17] <Thermoelectric> Yeah, I'm pretty sure it is a dodgy card. Doing an RMA request form for it now. Only a few weeks until I get to try with a *hopefully* good card!

[12:31] <shiftplusone> bryter, that means that the output on the supply will fall within that range, meaning in reality it can be anywhere from 4 to 8 volts depending on the amount of current drawn by the pi. Those are horrible specs and I would throw that 'charger' in the bin while your phone still works.
[12:33] <SpeedEvil> some older phones used a current limited charger, and pulse charging

[13:06] <gordonDrogon> [deXter], I think it's a pointless waste of time.
[13:07] <[deXter]> gordonDrogon, why's that?
[13:09] <gordonDrogon> because the Pi is designed to work without a heatsink.
[13:10] <gordonDrogon> therefore fans, heatsinks, etc. are simply a pointless waste of time
[13:10] <gordonDrogon> and moeny.
[13:10] <[deXter]> Well, I'm running it ouside of design specs (ie, it's OC'd) :)
[13:10] <artag> the thermal image on that is rather pretty and shows that the ethernet chip is by far the hottest

[13:13] <artag> doesn't the GPU turn it down if it overheats anyway ?
[13:13] <gordonDrogon> it's supposed to.
[13:14] <artag> if you were running it OC and consistently found it to have cut itself down it might be worth consideroing, but without that it's just bling
[13:15] * Milos|Netbook (~Milos@pdpc/supporter/student/milos) has joined #raspberrypi
[13:16] <gordonDrogon> I've yet to see any of mine get that hot.
[13:16] <gordonDrogon> and I've run them packed in bubble wrap overnight to test.
[13:16] <shiftplusone> even with a a heatsink, you're not going to see any benefits. there is no proper therman conduction from the ram chip to the cpu so you'll only see 1 or 2 degrees difference anyway.
[13:16] <gordonDrogon> possibly in a hot country, in direct sunlight...
[13:16] <gordonDrogon> shiftplusone, there is that too...
[13:16] <gordonDrogon> the whole thing is really not designed to have a heatsink on it...
[13:16] <Jever> if you still need heatsinks
[13:17] <Jever> go to ebay.com
[13:17] <[deXter]> shiftplusone, good point
[13:17] <gordonDrogon> but if you want that 'bling' factor, then cover it in heatsinks ;-0
[13:17] <Jever> there are a lot of chinese vendors which are alot cheaper but you have to wait a month
[13:17] <Jever> http://www.ebay.com/itm/10-x-TO220-ANODIZED-ALUMINUM-HEATSINK-HEAT-SINK-15-20-P-/280672525669?pt=US_CPU_Fans_Heatsinks&hash=item415962dd65 for example. just replace .com with your country ending
[13:17] <Jever> ah well they don't fit hehe
[13:19] <Jever> but there are a lot of other heatsinks too which you can buy for 2$
[13:19] <shiftplusone> you could also add some speedholes
[13:22] <gordonDrogon> or just not bother...
[13:22] <shiftplusone> or paint it red
[13:23] <Flasking23> painting it red is worth 10% cpu at least
[13:23] <artag> you could paint the edge of the pcb with a green pen
[13:24] <shiftplusone> I do wonder if there's any benefit in adding a heatsink to the ethernet/usb chip... that things gets pretty damn hot
[13:24] <Jever> if it works, it works
[13:24] <Jever> so why bother
[13:24] <Jever> they're designed to get hot
[13:24] <[deXter]> Well that's one chip I'm not worried about, because it's rated till 70C
[13:24] <artag> ethernet chips always do, i guess they probably allow for it in the design
[13:24] <Jever> i read about the guruplug
[13:25] <shiftplusone> hm
[13:25] <Jever> which has two gigabit ethernet ports
[13:25] <Jever> and a poorly designed case

[16:47] <psino> I'm having some issues with my newly arrived B model RPi. It worked for about 10 minutes before it randomly shuts down, and I can only get it to start booting once in a while now. And when it boots, it usually just seems to shut down randomly somewhere in the boot-sequence, about 20-30 seconds in??? is there any way I can find out what is wrong, or is this a hardware issue?
[16:48] <[7]> psino: how are you supplying power to the board?
[16:48] <psino> sometimes when I give it power, I only get the constant red power light and sometimes both the red power and the green activity light is on constantly
[16:48] <psino> using a 1A ipod power adapter

[19:06] <interrobangd> _yac_, you think to power the RPi about the GIPO instead of USB?
[19:07] <_yac_> so i just meant if one wants a reset switch it's better to cut off 5V rather than short it to ground
[19:07] <IT_Sean> Don't even need a relay for that. just a N/O momentary button on the power lead.

[20:23] <perfumeSwell> Damn. So laurent\/mebus: Still think VLC is the way to go? Basically, I'd like to put a couple video filenames and timestamps in some kind of shell or Python script, and run it while SSH'd in and have it switch between them as specified via raspberrypi's video or HDMI out.
[20:24] <mebus> perfumeSwell: don't know
[20:24] <mebus> just an idea
[20:24] <perfumeSwell> mebus: Is the only way to run VLC by bringing up the desktop env?
[20:25] <kjs> cant you use mplayer
[20:25] <kjs> you can run a vlc video from the cmdline iirc as well.
[20:26] <perfumeSwell> kjs: But without this openmax, I can't have it play out the right video out?
[20:26] <laurent\> perfumeSwell: vlc can run from cmd line without a gui
[20:26] <perfumeSwell> getting mplayer now...
[20:27] <mebus> perfumeSwell: I don't know. I'm using my raspberry headless.
[20:27] <laurent\> afaik mplayer won't have support for openmax without patching

[20:35] <laurent\> i don't plan on using my rpi to do anything related to video (decoding/encoding)
[20:35] <laurent\> as support for it is very poor. (and i can't really help with that)
[20:38] <perfumeSwell> So I'm having VLC send video to framebuffer, or is VLC no longer involved?
[20:39] <laurent\> oh it is, just tell him to use it, i guess it should be something like -V fb
[20:39] <laurent\> or fbdev

[21:20] <hyde> (because obviously I do not remember to do it before starting gparted)
[21:20] <jelly1> like 2.3x faster on low res
[21:20] <hyde> well, check the ratio of pixels...
[21:20] <shiftplusone> you can start it and specify the device at the same time (gparted /dev/sdc, for example), then it doesn't scan all devices I think
[21:22] <hyde> and the tool I was thinking would probably be a shell script wrapper around dd and parted, at least the first version

[21:38] <hyde> gordonDrogon: interesting!
[21:38] <shiftplusone> hyde, in political movments, forking tends to spawn little groups which evolve into different movments which split up further and dissolve. An example being occupy wallstreet. They has a common broad goal, then little subgroups started to form (anti-war, pro-equality, socialists and so on) until the tension between the groups dissolved the movment. Maybe forking should be a bit of a last resort rather than the first course of action.

[22:15] <UnaClocker> jelly1: You see that python I posted?
[22:16] <psino> :/ then I'm out of ideas why this board isn't working. just got it today (my first RPi), TP1/2 has a pretty stable 4.66 volts. It sometimes boots, idles at 4.72 V at raspie-config until the screen suddenly goes black, nothing works and after a few seconds, it reads 4.91 V. after this the device needs around 30 minutes before it even wants to attempt booting again :(
[22:17] <UnaClocker> Noisy power supply?

[22:19] <psino> I don't know at what point its defined as noisy, but during boot it sometimes moves from 4.66 to 4.67, and I dont know if the change to 4.72 makes any difference
[22:19] <psino> but I never read something as high as 4.9 before a while after it has crashed
[22:20] <UnaClocker> Noisy would be high frequency ripple on the DC power. You'd need a scope to see it.. Are you using a cheap chinese power supply, or a good one?

[22:25] <psino> I've also tried the charger that came with my samsung galaxy nexus (google phone-thingy), which seems to give the lowest voltage
[22:25] <UnaClocker> heh.. Ok..
[22:25] <psino> also tried running it off my motherboard on my pc, which is an asus, getting the same behaviour on each

[22:26] <Armand> psino, doesn't the Pi need a minimum of 4.75 to boot?
[22:28] <psino> Is that measured between TP1 and TP2 or somewhere else?

[22:41] <psino> I just waited a few minutes, and plugged it in again. the same supply that showed a stable 5.06V suddenly showed up as 4.80V, and right after the RPi blackscreened/stopped working, it went up to 4.96V. both ACT/PWR gives solid/non-flashing green lights. after a minute or so it is back at showing 5.06V
[22:42] <IT_Sean> dodgy power supply

[22:43] <IT_Sean> O_o
[22:43] <gordonDrogon> Tachyon`, a rant about basic?
[22:45] <Tachyon`> that particular basic
[22:45] <Tachyon`> which is nonstandard in the extreme and a very bad choice but I think I alraedy went there the other day
[22:45] <artag> psino: have you tried various USB cables ?
[22:45] <psino> I can get ahold of a completely different power converter tomorrow and test with that, but if that doesn't work??? is it plausible that it's just this board that has a defect? or is there something else left to check?
[22:46] <psino> artag: yes, I've thrown away a few microusb-cables that has been getting me bad voltages
[22:46] <gordonDrogon> Tachyon`, yes... indeed. agree there - just thought I'd benchmark is against my basic though :)
[22:47] <psino> I guess I could buy another microusb cable tomorrow, but I'm not sure how I can guarantee that it will be any better than what I have right now
[22:47] * home (~home@unaffiliated/home) has joined #raspberrypi
[22:47] <Tachyon`> that's a PSU issue
[22:47] <Tachyon`> your cable is fine
[22:47] <artag> no, you've tried a few, that's a fair test
[22:47] * MichaelC is now known as UKB|Away
[22:47] <Tachyon`> link out the polyfuse and if that fails, buy a better psu

[22:50] <artag> my only concern with that is that it sounds as though either the PSU drops voltage too easily, or the rpi takes too much current. The PSU is the obvious culprit .. but he's already tried several good quality ones. So if the rpi is taking excessive current, is it a good idea to bridge the fuse ?
[22:51] <psino> I'm pretty sure that would void any warranties too
[22:52] <psino> at the moment I'm thinking of trying to return it for a replacement since I just got it and it has never worked properly
[22:53] <IT_Sean> I say go for it
[22:54] <Tachyon`> it probably would void the warranty
[22:54] <Tachyon`> I'm sort of assuming nobody really cares about this
[22:54] <Armand> I'm more concerned with killing mine... that's the only reason I haven't modded it yet. :P
[22:54] <Tachyon`> what devices do you have plugged into the pi hen it fails?
[22:54] <IT_Sean> Welcome to #raspberrypi. We void warrenties.
[22:54] <Tachyon`> lol

[22:58] <psino> only cables connected to it is the hdmi cable and the microusb which powers it
[22:58] <Tachyon`> yeah, it's a shame you don't haev another pi to try
[22:58] <psino> I wouldn't be concerned about voiding the warranty if it didn't take me months to get another one

[23:11] <jmadero> how do I install sftp server on the pi
[23:11] <jmadero> so I can use sshfs
[23:11] <rikkib> apt-get install ssh
[23:12] <rikkib> sftp i part of that package
[23:12] <rikkib> is
[23:12] <rikkib> sorry misread the question
[23:12] <jmadero> sweet, trying now :)
[23:12] <jmadero> just want to sshfs into it and mount it to my laptop
[23:13] <rikkib> I think the answer is still correct but
[23:13] <bryter> i am currently using xbian with raspberry pi and i wanted to know if there is anyway to map some more keys. i currently am using my hdtv remote to control the pi (hdmi-cec) and the majority of keys work but some of them have no functionality with the pi.
[23:13] <rikkib> ssh is install by default of Raspbian
[23:13] <rikkib> on
[23:14] <jmadero> Raspbian fails horribly on my machine
[23:14] <jmadero> doesn't play nice with my wireless keyboard

[23:19] <bryter> if i were to change what the pressing of a specific remote button does to xbmc, what file while i have to change or add?
[23:20] <gordonDrogon> jmadero, if your keyboard has a proprietary over-air interface, then it's nothing to do with raspbian...
[23:20] <jmadero> gordonDrogon: works fine with every other Linux distro
[23:20] <jmadero> including xbian
[23:20] <jmadero> Bodhi, Ubuntu, OpenSuse, Fedora
[23:20] <gordonDrogon> jmadero, is it bluetooth then?
[23:20] <jmadero> no
[23:21] <jmadero> more concerned about sshfs now
[23:21] <gordonDrogon> then there is no reason it won't work under raspbian - it's just a usb keyboard & mouse to the host.
[23:21] <jmadero> it doesn't, so I use xbian which is fine
[23:21] <jmadero> but I am getting a bad mount point with sshfs, this is my concern now
[23:22] <mgottschlag> jmadero: did you try unmount before? the mountpoint could still be bad because of a previous failed sshfs attempt
