[0:01] <mumbles> if i want to turn my raspbery pi into a rich media information display - facebook, twitter feeds etc, is there arleady a project out there that would work ?
[0:02] <LordThumper> anyone got a digital video / audio input to work with Raspbmc?

[0:15] <[deXter]> LordThumper, you mean using the PVR feature?

[0:19] <LordThumper> Yes, that is what I am aiming for eventually
[0:20] <[deXter]> LordThumper, Then you'll have to buy the MPEG-2 codec license
[0:20] <[deXter]> possibly even VC-1
[0:20] <LordThumper> Yes, bought it
[0:20] <LordThumper> the MPEG2 I mean
[0:20] <[deXter]> Well LordThumper I would recommend OpenELEC instead. :)
[0:21] <LordThumper> For now, I just want to see if the device is supported by the kernel
[0:21] <[deXter]> ah
[0:21] <[deXter]> I know for sure PVR works in OpenELEC also, it's more frequently maintained/
[0:21] <[deXter]> Of course the actual result would depend on the card..
[0:21] <LordThumper> ofcourse
[0:22] <LordThumper> I don't think OpenElec works on RPI, does it?
[0:22] <[deXter]> it does
[0:22] <[deXter]> it's better maintained, more frequent updates
[0:22] <LordThumper> Oh didn't know that
[0:22] <LordThumper> Thanks, going to try it out

[0:34] * scummos (~sven@p57B1A119.dip.t-dialin.net) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[0:35] <[deXter]> Say folks, /proc/cpuinfo shows that one of the features of the CPU is "java"
[0:35] <[deXter]> does that mean Java code is hardware accelerated?
[0:36] <mgottschlag> [deXter]: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jazelle
[0:38] <mgottschlag> especially "It also prevents open source JVMs from using Jazelle"
[0:38] <[deXter]> O.o
[0:40] * scummos (~sven@p57B1A119.dip.t-dialin.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:40] <[deXter]> I wonder if that's what Android phones make use of in order to speed up Java execution..
[0:41] <mgottschlag> isn't dalvik actually open source? I think Android just compiles the code and places the native code in a cache for later use
[0:41] <mgottschlag> I don't know for sure though, I just think I have read that somewhere
[0:42] <mgottschlag> which would make Jazelle unnecessary are (hopefully rather fast, even though not very optimized) native code is executed

[0:44] <[deXter]> yep, Android uses JIT
[0:44] <mgottschlag> (jazelle was mainly created for devices which were too small for JIT compilation)
[0:45] <[deXter]> hmm

[1:05] <FBeans> hola all
[1:05] <FBeans> messing about with joysticks and controllers etc atm
[1:05] * MidnighToker (~Toker@unaffiliated/midnightoker) Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[1:06] <FBeans> anyone know of any good sources to learn, and configure stuff like ps2 controllers on the pi
[1:06] <FBeans> ?
[1:07] <FBeans> anyone even up?
[1:07] <FBeans> I guess this is mostly a UK channel, and everyone is asleep as it's sunday evening
[1:10] * PhotoJim is sitting in Winnipeg International Airport, but has no intelligent answer :)
[1:10] <FBeans> lol
[1:10] <FBeans> awesome enough response :D
[1:10] <PhotoJim> at the tail end of a YQR-DEN-TPA/TPA-DEN-YYZ/YYZ-YWG-YQR trip :)
[1:10] <FBeans> Im going to try and make myself a pi arcade coffee table
[1:11] <PhotoJim> cool.
[1:11] <FBeans> like the one some guy recently did
[1:11] <FBeans> but almost certainly not as good
[1:11] <FBeans> so im going for some emulators, some controller support
[1:11] <crenn> Anyone having problems with gcc?
[1:11] <FBeans> and then i'll program an interface
[1:12] <FBeans> If you're having gcc problems, I feel bad for you son, I have 99 problems, but the compiler ain't one!
[1:12] <FBeans> (also, sorry, not helpful at all.)
[1:12] <crenn> It's fine, not your fault it's not working
[1:13] <crenn> When I try to compile, I'm getting this: "collect2: ld terminated with signal 11 [Segmentation fault]
[1:13] * eggy (matt@unaffiliated/eggy) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:14] <crenn> This is what I'm using to build it: sudo gcc -o spiLCD -I ./bcm2835-1.5/src/ ./bcm2835-1.5/src/bcm2835.c spimapleLCD.c
[1:14] <crenn> And yes, the sudo is not needed, but thought I'd throw it in there just in case

[1:16] <Wiisel> FBeans: http://petrockblog.wordpress.com/2012/10/21/the-retropie-gpio-adapter/
[1:16] <crenn> FBeans: Yep, and no help so far relating to the RPi, going to probably need to branch out though
[1:16] <FBeans> I have no useful c++ knowledge, but It's almost certainly not a GCC issue, its probably specfic to what you are trying to compile
[1:18] <FBeans> hmm Wiisel, my plan is USB powered hub, and xbox/ps2/ps1 controllers
[1:18] <FBeans> so the GPIO route is not quite for me
[1:18] <crenn> Fun thing is, spimapleLCD.c has compiled fine before with that command, but not now
[1:19] <[deXter]> Btw, anyone here upgraded from a Class 6 SD card to a Class 10 and noticed any performance improvement at all?
[1:20] <Wiisel> why all the different pads?
[1:20] <rikkib> wordpress and iceweasel do not like each other
[1:20] <Wiisel> just get anything working and padhack it to real arcade sticks and buttons
[1:21] <FBeans> Wiisel: well really, I don't have a specfic plan
[1:21] * s5fs (~adam@unaffiliated/s5fs) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:22] <FBeans> my plan was, "I have these controllers..."
[1:22] * monkeycoder (~monkeycod@178.121.121.84) Quit (Ping timeout: 256 seconds)
[1:22] <Wiisel> at most pi will emulate psx and ps1 pads are perfect for pad hacking :)
[1:22] <Wiisel> probably better off using an old laptop or something other than a pi tho tbh
[1:23] <FBeans> ok so pad hacking is the banana I want. I think I have a ps2 pad with an adapter to USB
[1:23] <FBeans> yea, I agree, but where's teh fun there?
[1:23] * plugwash looks at the log
[1:23] <Wiisel> in the games you can play
[1:23] <FBeans> I think i'll start with my main PC and then see if I cant get the pi sorted
[1:24] <FBeans> well, it would be nice to use my pi for something
[1:24] <Gosy> how do i enable the GUI on the rbp?
[1:24] <FBeans> my main plan is really old crappy games
[1:24] <Wiisel> srk is good for pad hacking info and some awesome custom joystics
[1:24] <FBeans> Gosy: what distribution?
[1:24] <Gosy> raspian
[1:24] <FBeans> vov
[1:24] <s5fs> whats the recommended distro right now?
[1:25] <FBeans> no idea, is tehre one
[1:25] <FBeans> Im using arch
[1:25] <FBeans> it comes with no windows manager
[1:25] <FBeans> but it takes 5mins to set something like xfce up
[1:25] <s5fs> i don't need no gui
[1:25] <FBeans> Wiisel: srk, I will look into this
[1:26] <FBeans> s5fs: fe, im currently working on playing games, so some form of gui will be nice
[1:26] <FBeans> I will probably revery to just using X tho
[1:26] <FBeans> *revert
[1:26] <Wiisel> http://shoryuken.com/forum/index.php
[1:26] <s5fs> FBeans: fun stuff, i built a mame cab about 10yrs ago
[1:27] <s5fs> thought about doing a small coffee table or similar with the pi, but i likely won't.
[1:28] <FBeans> it seemed so easy, so im going for it
[1:28] <FBeans> It will be well used tho, might even make one for work
[1:29] <s5fs> what sort of cabinet/enclosure are you looking to build?
[1:29] <FBeans> coffee table
[1:29] <s5fs> sweet
[1:30] <FBeans> so easy to do
[1:30] <FBeans> not sure on how easy to use it will be
[1:30] <FBeans> also, it means I can just mount a monitor in it
[1:30] <FBeans> rather than trying to use some expensive screen
[1:30] <FBeans> basially, going for the poor man's arcade
[1:30] <s5fs> agreed
[1:31] <FBeans> so the only thing I need to buy is a usb hub for the controllers
[1:31] <FBeans> then all the power will go into an extension lead
[1:31] <FBeans> and then it will just have one plug
[1:31] * Armand (~martin@cpc17-haye16-2-0-cust427.haye.cable.virginmedia.com) Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[1:32] <FBeans> all of it will be easily mountable to a coffee table, then i'll do my best to clean it up and make it look cool
[1:32] <FBeans> I was thinking perspex sides
[1:32] <s5fs> that's pretty cool
[1:32] <FBeans> so that you can just see everything
[1:32] <IT_Sean> In that case, it'll need a lot of LEDs. Light it up like a battefeild.
[1:33] <FBeans> lol
[1:33] <FBeans> I think maybe I could hide it all, still have perspex, but then put a hamster cage in there with a cable connected from the wheel
[1:33] <FBeans> so when people see it they are "WTF - hamster powered arcade"
[1:34] <FBeans> because normal people don't understand computers
[1:34] * messenjah_ (~rasta@dyn-cdma-84-44-180-134.netcologne.de) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:35] <FBeans> the most fun should be creating a program to interface with the contollers, and emulators/native games
[1:35] <FBeans> plan is to abstract all the faff of loading an emulator and configuring a controller away
[1:35] <FBeans> so its just, turn on, choose game, plug conroller, play
[1:35] * messenjah (~rasta@dyn-cdma-84-44-181-32.netcologne.de) Quit (Ping timeout: 240 seconds)
[1:35] * messenjah_ is now known as messenjah
[1:36] <FBeans> i'd love to get fullscreen pong working
[1:36] <FBeans> that's the 1st goal
[1:36] <FBeans> 2 player, 2 controllers
[1:36] <FBeans> coffee table pong
[1:36] <s5fs> sweet idea
[1:36] <unreal-dude> anybody got any tutorials for spi via python?
[1:38] <Wiisel> hack some old atari 2600 paddles into a mini cocktail cab for pong :)
[1:38] <FBeans> then the future future plan would be to wrap it all up in a good tutorial, and a binary, so people can implement the same thing, and take it too more fun levels
[1:38] <FBeans> I guess that is essentially the whole idea for the pi
[1:39] <FBeans> do something fun, share it, someone else uses it, more fun, ..... then something really fun/ usefull is produced
[1:39] <Wiisel> so far pi has me watching more TV :D

[1:41] <[deXter]> Does anyone know what the keyboard in this picture is called? http://www.skpang.co.uk/blog/wp-content/uploads/2012/07/IMG_00041.jpg
[1:42] <IT_Sean> Dunno what it's called, exactly, but search ebay for small bluetooth keyboard and you'll find it
[1:42] <IT_Sean> it's cheap chinese crap, so... all over ebay.
[1:42] <IT_Sean> You cannot not find it. :p
[1:42] <[deXter]> :/
[1:43] <FBeans> lol
[1:44] <FBeans> What I like about cheap keyboards: when you spill beer on them, it doesn't really matter
[1:44] * IT_Sean is typing on a slightly not-cheap keyboard at the moment, which he loves.
[1:45] <Wiisel> "Mini wireless keyboard ? Amazon"
[1:45] <s5fs> i'm pure laptop these days, if i spill on my keyboard i'm bummed
[1:45] <FBeans> when I learn to care for my keyboards, i'll get a good one ;)
[1:45] <FBeans> I'm thinking about getting a model M at work
[1:45] <Wiisel> heh this ones god knows how old with missing keys
[1:45] <s5fs> man, i used mechanical keyboards forever, not sure what the fascination with them is
[1:46] <FBeans> mainly to piss off the other devs with the sound
[1:46] <FBeans> click click
[1:46] <FBeans> they are pretty awesome to use
[1:46] <FBeans> but, it's 50% usablility and 50% look how cool my keyboard is: click click
[1:46] <s5fs> they're loud, i'll give you that
[1:46] * IT_Sean uses a Logitech Illuminated
[1:46] <[deXter]> they also sound impressive when you're talking to someone over the phone and you're typing away at blazing speeds
[1:47] <Wiisel> i refuse to pay a lot for a keyboard i only touch with one finger
[1:47] <FBeans> I might get one, (i forget it's name) with no keynames on it
[1:47] <FBeans> so its just a bunch of black keys
[1:47] <FBeans> and I think its mechanical
[1:47] <s5fs> yeah, coworker has one
[1:47] <FBeans> so people are all: wtf is that
[1:48] <FBeans> lol Wiisel
[1:48] <Wiisel> http://www.amazon.co.uk/Rii-2-4GHz-Wireless-Keyboard-Touchpad/dp/B004FSFYG8/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1352076483&sr=8-1
[1:48] <Wiisel> looks like the one
[1:48] <[deXter]> hmm
[1:49] <IT_Sean> Aye... that looks like it.
[1:49] <[deXter]> nice, and it comes with a low-profile receiver too!
[1:49] <[deXter]> There are literally dozens of keyboards out there which look similar but are all slightly different in one way or other..

[2:54] <Tachyon`> unless you're 7 you won't be typing on it easily, also the range is terrible

[3:25] <plugwash> :(
[3:26] <tanto> signed up to be notified, and it said 5-10 days, so i'm hoping to have one soon-ish
[3:27] * plugwash would suggest actually placing an order (assuming you are talking about newark/mcm)
[3:27] <tanto> whats the url for that one?
[3:28] <tanto> i think i was looking at sparkfun

[3:29] <tanto> thanks
[3:29] <plugwash> they are currently saything 9th dec but they usually beat their estimates and noone else in the US is likely to have them before newark do
[3:30] <plugwash> because newark are the main distributor for farnell made Pis in the US so basically everyone else in the US will be getting their Pis from them
[3:30] <plugwash> (allied are the US distributor for RS made Pis but RS are terriblly backordered)
[3:31] <tanto> what are the difference between farnell and rs ?

[3:33] <plugwash> farnell and rs are the two companies who are making and distributing Pis
[3:33] <plugwash> and farnell are doing a much better job of keeping up with demand than RS are
[3:34] <tanto> is the quality the same?
[3:35] <plugwash> I'm not aware of any quality differences but the only people who really know for sure will be those who can see the returns numbers, not us plebs

[5:58] <bircoe> can't answer you first question...
[5:59] <bircoe> to boot linux on a Pi you need 3 things, an SD card, an image for that SD card and a computer to write that image to the card.
[5:59] <bircoe> official images are here: http://www.raspberrypi.org/downloads
[6:00] <bircoe> and the quick start guide is here: http://www.raspberrypi.org/quick-start-guide

[10:30] <Jck_true> bagpuss_thecat: Haha :P - I bought the solar panel thing on the page
[10:30] <Jck_true> (And acciedntially broke it...
[10:30] <bagpuss_thecat> hehehe
[10:31] <Jck_true> So Now I just soldered the voltmeter to the solar panel and leave it in the window)
[10:33] <bagpuss_thecat> niiice :-)
[10:43] <Jck_true> bagpuss_thecat: Updated it with two additional items (Carrying case and a voltage regulator) - And yes I know I should do this more properly and I plan todo so when i get my webpage running properly :)

[10:55] <Armand> Hi, Cadmi
[10:55] <Cadmi> hello armand
[10:55] <Cadmi> do you know if i can connect parallel rgb lcd on raspberry?
[10:55] <tero> hi guys. I am trying to setup 3g modem on pi.. I was trying to use sakis3g but their site is not working :(
[10:55] <Cadmi> i need small lcd sun-readable for it
[10:55] <tero> any ideas where can I get it?
[10:55] <Cadmi> and i see, more common interfaces are parallel rgb
[10:57] <Armand> Jck_true, I went for a much bigger solar setup myself. ^_^
[10:58] <Jck_true> Armand: Got a tiny problem with import customs here not allowing items above the 13USD of value
[10:58] <Armand> O_O
[10:59] <Jck_true> Otherwise I get charged 27 USD in handling + 25% in VAT
[10:59] <Jck_true> So I went for the cheapest and worst :)
[10:59] <Armand> I've only ever ordered real cheap stuff from overseas.
[11:00] <Armand> Thankfully most of the stuff I needed was already in the UK.

[11:42] <Jck_true> 140ma?
[11:42] <Armand> Sorry, voltage limit
[11:42] <Jck_true> Not sure what you mean with that...
[11:43] <Armand> What is the maximum safe voltage?
[11:43] <Jck_true> The USB specs saids 5V +- 5% - so that's 4V75 and 5V25
[11:43] <Armand> Okies
[11:43] <Armand> Thank you
[11:51] <mumbles> yay my pibow has arived
[11:51] <Cadmi> has parallel rgb another name ?
[11:51] <Cadmi> i don't find so many information on internet
[11:53] <Draylor> :)
[11:53] <Waldi_> if i insert my wlan usb stick in my raspberry pi directly it reboots instantly, what can this cause? if i use a hub it does not
[11:54] <Waldi_> too low current?
[11:54] <Armand> mumbles, it looks like a nice case design.. not keen on the rainbow colouring though.
[11:54] <Sonny_Jim> Waldi_: Mine does that as well, it's annoying
[11:54] <SzArAk> Waldi_: to high power consumption peak, just plug it in before booting pi
[11:54] <Sonny_Jim> I think a powered USB hub would fix that
[11:55] * ExeciN (~nicexe@212.50.104.158) has joined #raspberrypi
[11:55] <Waldi_> ok, it's also working if i use a usb extension
[11:55] <FBeans> 02:33 < tanto> is the quality the same?
[11:56] <FBeans> um, yea, Farnell and RS just distribute the pi.
[11:56] <ExeciN> How can I ssh into my rpi but keep the output on the physical monitor?
[11:56] <gordonDrogon> ExeciN, that's nothing stopping that.
[11:56] <Waldi_> anyone using carl9170?
[11:56] <FBeans> ExeciN: if you use the program screen
[11:57] <Waldi_> ExeciN vpn
[11:57] <Waldi_> ? :D
[11:57] <FBeans> then you can view the same stuff on both monitors
[11:57] <FBeans> everyone should always use screen (or alternatives)
[11:58] <FBeans> because i'ts the most useful thing EVER!
[11:58] <Sonny_Jim> screen is certainly handy, although I've never used it for split screen like that
[11:58] <ExeciN> Every time I try to ssh into my rpi i get the output on the ssh client. I want the output at least on the physically connected monitor.

[11:59] <Sonny_Jim> Plug a keyboard in and use that?
[12:00] <Fleck> ;p
[12:00] <ExeciN> It doesn't matter what I am doing through ssh, the monitor still shows the system in idle state
[12:01] <Sonny_Jim> Yeah, the screenblank will kick in
[12:01] <Tachyon`> setterm -blank 0
[12:01] <Sonny_Jim> And that's exactly how ssh is supposed to work, remember Unix was for big multi-user systems
[12:01] <Tachyon`> will disable screenblank at the console
[12:02] <Sonny_Jim> You could always log the output of screen (screen -L) and then tail the output (tail -f screen.log)
[12:02] <Amorsen> "synergy" is what you want, but I am not sure how well it works without X
[12:02] <Tachyon`> you can also redirect the output of commands to /dev/tty12 or w/e and have your systen display that
[12:02] <Tachyon`> hrm, or you could do that
[12:02] <Tachyon`> although would a screen log contain all the control codes etc. or does it strip things out to make them more human readable
[12:02] <Sonny_Jim> Yeah
[12:03] <Amorsen> It looks like synergy works on the Pi
[12:03] <Sonny_Jim> You *can* view a running screen session, I just can't remember how
[12:03] <FBeans> ExeciN: what is your goal, what are you actually trying to do? SSH is for remotley connecting to the command line of another maching (amonst about another million things). But it's not designed to show things on two monitors.. it can be done though
[12:04] <Amorsen> http://synergy-foss.org/da/
[12:04] <Amorsen> Err http://synergy-foss.org/
[12:04] <Sonny_Jim> From the sounds of it I think he wants console only
[12:04] <Sonny_Jim> Otherwise x11vnc would have sorted this problem already
[12:04] <ExeciN> What about only the physical monitor instead of the remote?
[12:05] <Sonny_Jim> I think tbh synergy and X would be the best bet
[12:05] <FBeans> ExeciN: try this.
[12:06] <Sonny_Jim> As synergy doesn't transfer the picture over the network, only mouse/keyboard it'll be fairly snappy
[12:06] <FBeans> 1. on the local machine, install screen.
[12:06] <FBeans> Then run screen, "screen"
[12:06] <FBeans> 2. On the other machine, ssh in using the same user
[12:07] <FBeans> and then connect to the same screen session using "screen -x"
[12:07] <FBeans> you will then have the same terminal window open locally and remotely
[12:07] <Sonny_Jim> Or there's this:
[12:07] <Sonny_Jim> http://superuser.com/questions/67659/linux-share-keyboard-over-network
[12:07] <Sonny_Jim> Good old netcat

[12:34] <gordonDrogon> are there?
[12:34] <gordonDrogon> must be something pretty specialised...
[12:34] <lunra> No, think about 24bit colour
[12:34] <lunra> 8 bits for each color
[12:34] <gordonDrogon> sure, but that's usually inside a chip. very very rare to get that externally these days.
[12:35] <lunra> While analog RGB is generally just three wires.
[12:35] <phire> and then there is the DPI bus, which is actually supported on the bcm2807
[12:35] <phire> but not routed on the rpi
[12:35] <phire> 8, 16 or 18 wires
[12:35] <gordonDrogon> isn't that serialised though?

[12:37] <lunra> Ah :)

[12:38] <Armand> that way, I still have the polyfuse on the Pi board. :)
[12:39] <FBeans> so by that you mean, that your Pi is running on batteries
[12:39] <Armand> ohh yes. :D
[12:39] <FBeans> and has a solar panel plugged into it ;)
[12:39] <Armand> Yup
[12:39] <FBeans> going to test it
[12:39] <FBeans> leave it out all day
[12:39] <FBeans> see when it dies
[12:40] <lunra> is it for fun, or some amazing project?
[12:40] <Armand> It's working now.. so, let's see if it's still on tomorrow.
[12:40] <FBeans> how long can 3 12V batteries last?
[12:40] <lunra> I mean, it's a project in its own right
[12:40] <Armand> I'm going to expand the project to run 4 Pi.
[12:40] <Armand> Each will host an individual website.
[12:40] <FBeans> please tell me that you are goiing to put it into a helium balloon and send it into the edge of space
[12:41] <FBeans> and then make it fall back to earth breaking the sound barrier
[12:41] <FBeans> FelixPi
[12:41] <Armand> FBeans, if we assume a max draw of ~500mA, then 21Ah lasts around 42hrs.
[12:41] <Armand> I think... :P
[12:41] <FBeans> that sounds pretty reasonable
[12:41] <Armand> I do have another battery, which would give me 28Ah
[12:41] <FBeans> and how quickly can the panel charge the batteries
[12:42] <lunra> Sadly batteries aren't 100% efficient when run outside their optimal drain current. But should be negligable.
[12:42] <Armand> Not very, I guess.. I've not tested a good output yet, with the crappy weather.
[12:42] <Armand> lunra, assumed figures at the moment
[12:42] <Armand> These are deep-cycle batteries, lead acid.
[12:42] <FBeans> Armand: I take it you are in the UK.

[13:41] <Tachyon`> there, cheap, spi and touchscreen
[13:42] <Cadmi> i need it bigger
[13:42] <Cadmi> between 4 and 6"
[13:42] * trijntje (~quassel@ubuntu/member/trijntje) has joined #raspberrypi
[13:42] <Tachyon`> ah right
[13:42] * Nik05__ (~Nik05@unaffiliated/nik05) has joined #raspberrypi
[13:43] <Cadmi> Tachyon` with the screen you suggest me should i write a driver?
[13:43] * Nik05 (~Nik05@unaffiliated/nik05) Quit (Ping timeout: 252 seconds)
[13:43] <Tachyon`> I suspect there'll be libraries for it already
[13:43] <Tachyon`> but I doubt it'd be that hard if there aren't
[13:43] <Tachyon`> it is only serial at the end of the day
[13:43] <Tachyon`> and those displays are intelligent
[13:44] <Cadmi> parallel more difficult probably?
[13:44] <Tachyon`> IE: you can send command to say draw this primitive or output this text here
[13:44] <Tachyon`> very muchmore difficult
[13:44] <Cadmi> thought it's 8 wire
[13:44] <Tachyon`> the one I mention can do both parallel and SPI
[13:44] <Tachyon`> btu I'd be using it in SPI mode
[13:44] <Tachyon`> also beware screens that are parallel for the LCD and SPI for the touchscreen only
[13:44] <RaycisCharles> What's the coolest things you guys have done with your Rpi?
[13:44] <Tachyon`> I got burned once that way
[13:45] <Cadmi> aham
[13:45] <Cadmi> Tachyon` the problem is that the most lcd are parallel rgb
[13:45] <Cadmi> so i have more choises to choose
[13:45] <RaycisCharles> Cadmi, did you use the 512mb version for your ham?
[13:46] <Tachyon`> I realise that, but do you really want to eat the whole port with the display?
[13:46] <Cadmi> but if it's going to give me problems..
[13:46] <Tachyon`> they definitely make spi touchscreen ones in 3.5" but not sure about 4-6, never looked for anything that size
[13:46] <Cadmi> RaycisCharles i have to buy the raspberry yet
[13:47] <Cadmi> Tachyon` i can use an expander
[13:47] <Cadmi> GPIO expander, isnt it?

[13:47] * trijntje (~quassel@ubuntu/member/trijntje) has joined #raspberrypi
[13:47] <Tachyon`> you can use expanders, there's also boards that will let you drive 16 bit displays with an 8 bit output
[13:48] <Cadmi> aham
[13:48] <Cadmi> What i exactly need is a lcd screen sun-readable of 5" more or less, full color
[13:48] <Tachyon`> it's just not how I'd do it but it's your project I suppose, lol
[13:48] <Tachyon`> heh, sun readable, good luck with that
[13:48] <Cadmi> haha
[13:48] <Cadmi> why?
[13:48] <Tachyon`> I've yet to own an LCD device with colour that I can read outside
[13:48] <Tachyon`> although the kindle is very nice in that respect at least
[13:49] * [SLB]` (~slabua@unaffiliated/slabua) has joined #raspberrypi
[13:49] <Tachyon`> amazon seem to have given up on e-paper thoguh so buy your kindles while you still can
[13:49] <Cadmi> i hope
[13:49] <Tachyon`> they've gone with some horrible sidelite LCD for the new ones
[13:49] * [SLB]` is now known as [SLB]
[13:49] <Cadmi> if the manufacturer tells it's sun readable...
[13:49] <Cadmi> it whould be :P
[13:49] <Cadmi> should*
[13:49] <Tachyon`> I wouldn't count on it

[13:50] <Tachyon`> (maybe they liked the colour, I don't know)
[13:50] <Cadmi> what about oled?
[13:50] <Tachyon`> when my SGS3 arrives tomorrow I'll tell you
[13:50] <Tachyon`> lol
[13:50] <Cadmi> hahah

[13:50] <Tachyon`> dont' have anything with OLED here atm
[13:50] <Cadmi> ok
[13:51] <Cadmi> one question
[13:51] <Cadmi> i saw that there are two different parallels interfaces for lcd
[13:51] <Cadmi> - Parallel RGB
[13:51] <Tachyon`> more
[13:51] <Cadmi> - Paralel Data
[13:51] <Cadmi> what's the difference?
[13:51] <Cadmi> i'm looking for the lcd on panelook.com
[13:51] <Tachyon`> there are two main standards for laptop screens
[13:51] <Cadmi> and the most are parallel rgb
[13:51] <Cadmi> aha
[13:51] <Tachyon`> and most are indeed parallel RGB
[13:51] <Tachyon`> however
[13:52] <Tachyon`> when you look at screens that are not laptop screens, all sorts of other standards appear
[13:52] <Tachyon`> 8/16 bit parallel for example
[13:52] <Tachyon`> serial, spi
[13:52] <Cadmi> 8/16 bit parallel is the same as rgb paralel ?
[13:52] * mgottschlag (~quassel@reactos/tester/phoenix64) Quit (Ping timeout: 246 seconds)
[13:52] <Tachyon`> well, not the same as because RGB parallel has I thikn 8 lines per colour, then your clocks, syncs etc.
[13:52] <Cadmi> aha
[13:53] <Tachyon`> whereas the 8/16 bit ones just accept commands over a bus
[13:53] <Tachyon`> it's not raw rgb data as arule
[13:53] <Cadmi> ok let's imagine i buy a rgb parallel lcd (the only reason is because the 98% of the lcds are rgb parallel)
[13:54] <Tachyon`> I shold point out I've never atually done anything with teh laptop style screens, that connector looks tiny, heh, so may be hopelessly wrong but that's my impression from peering at the datasheets
[13:54] * vipkilla (~chatzilla@unaffiliated/t-dot-zilla/x-2830497) has joined #raspberrypi
[13:54] <Cadmi> what should i do to connect it to my raspberry
[13:54] <Cadmi> aham
[13:54] <Cadmi> 1. Buy a GPIO expander
[13:54] <Tachyon`> really, you're just making things hard for yourself, heh
[13:54] <Cadmi> i understand
[13:54] <Tachyon`> and remember how quickly you have to access those screens
[13:55] <Tachyon`> I'm not sure the pi could ven drive one if you made the interface
[13:55] <Tachyon`> what with it not having a real time kernel and all
[13:55] <Cadmi> arg
[13:55] <Tachyon`> I think timing is fairly critical with them
[13:55] * trijntje (~quassel@ubuntu/member/trijntje) Quit (Ping timeout: 255 seconds)
[13:55] <Tachyon`> what you might be able to do
[13:56] <Tachyon`> is make aninterface with a parallax propeller or something
[13:56] <Tachyon`> and have the pi control that
[13:56] <Tachyon`> witht he prop driving the display
[13:56] <Cadmi> aha i understand
[13:57] <Cadmi> and do you think it's difficult to drive an rgb parallel lcd?
[13:57] <Cadmi> should the manufacturer gives me any driver?
[13:58] <chithead> the manufacturer will give you a driver when it makes economic sense for him
[13:58] <Cadmi> grr
[13:58] <Cadmi> ok, so on the other hand, is it difficult to write a driver for an rgb lcd controller?
[13:59] <Cadmi> i would use any other interface, but looking on the market all the lcds are rgb parallel
[13:59] <Cadmi> there are few spi, or i2c
[14:00] <Cadmi> in fact,i didn't found any touchscreen SPI or I2c of 5"
[14:00] <Cadmi> color

[14:03] <IT_Sean> RUN!!!!!!!!
[14:03] <Wiisel> its not that hot to touch tho
[14:04] <Tachyon`> ah, seems driving such an LCD with a prop is out of the question too due to pin/memory limits

[14:05] <Tachyon`> yeah, you just get that with very new stuff as a rule, normally you don't notice due to casing etc.

[14:12] <Cadmi> ah ok
[14:12] <Cadmi> ops
[14:12] <Cadmi> i found a website where spi are more common

[14:16] <Cadmi> ;)
[14:16] <Tachyon`> I think most won't be sunreadable
[14:16] <Tachyon`> however, you could always go with a hood or someting

[14:29] <ExeciN> what am I doing wrong?
[14:29] <Cadmi> Tachyon` last question please. I see that they are a lot of lcd that uses SPi + 6 bit for RGB. Should it be difficult also?
[14:29] <Tachyon`> tha'ts probably actually 18 bit + syncs, 6 bits per colour
[14:30] <Tachyon`> and spi for touchscreen only
[14:30] <Tachyon`> so yes, difficult
[14:30] <ExeciN> never-mind, I missed () after int main.

[16:51] <des2> The PI takes 5V input power.
[16:51] <baconizer> *nod* but it needs power right? it looks like the "board only" deals dont come w/ power supplies
[16:51] <baconizer> http://canada.newark.com/raspberry-pi/raspbrry-modb-512m/model-b-assembled-board-only/dp/43W5302?ref=lookahead
[16:51] <des2> Right the PI needs 5V at at least 700mA to work.
[16:51] <baconizer> thats what im ordering
[16:52] <baconizer> doesnt appear to come w/ PS
[16:52] <des2> A 5V 1Amp supply is recommended.
[16:52] <des2> With a micro USB connector.
[16:52] <baconizer> *nod*
[16:52] <baconizer> im putting together a laser beam interface that detects breaks in a beam
[16:53] <DeliriumTremens> are you trying to baconize poultry?
[16:53] <DeliriumTremens> with lasers?
[16:53] <baconizer> for halloween next year, so that kids will hit a button, start w/ 30 candy bars, and every time they break the beam it deducts 1 bar
[16:53] <baconizer> then when they get to the door they hit a button and it dispenses
[16:53] <baconizer> from a hopper
[16:54] <DeliriumTremens> what happens when one just walks up to your door, hits the button, then has a friend stand back at the "start" button and they just go back and forth
[16:54] <des2> such systems are problematic since they hav trouble when groups of kids arrive.
[16:54] <DeliriumTremens> getting 30 bars at a time
[16:54] <baconizer> oh, ill be supervising

[16:55] <DeliriumTremens> 30 bars seems like an awful lot
[16:55] <baconizer> i expect the difficulty of the course to be high
[16:55] <baconizer> plus, big # of candybars = big incentive to play the game
[16:55] <DeliriumTremens> What if James Bond Jr. comes in?

[16:56] <baconizer> or is this overkill for the project i have in mind
[16:57] <baconizer> is there enough input/outputs on the pi, do i need to multiplex/demulti etc
[16:57] <baconizer> should i buy 2 considering the lag time for the pi's, as backup?

[20:18] <Matt> load average is the average number of processes that are waiting to be scheduled onto the CPU within a 1 minute, 5 minute and 15 minute period
[20:18] <d3nd3> Mihaylov: mb its to do with using mac80211 instead of legacy , http://www.aircrack-ng.org/doku.php?id=install_drivers
[20:19] <Matt> so on a single core system, such as the pi, a load average of 1.00 means that the system is fully loaded
[20:19] <RobinJ> Matt: so it doesn't have anything to do with cpu usage? 0.o
[20:19] <RobinJ> lol

[20:19] <Matt> and >1.00 means that there are processes waiting for CPU at any given time
[20:19] <RobinJ> that's not good
[20:20] <RobinJ> but how can the cpu usage be 4% then

[20:25] <Matt> it's high during boot because you're starting up a whole bunch of daemons

[21:52] <cyclick> 64gb is fine but I heard some have problems with class 10?
[21:52] <zleap> hmm
[21:53] <zleap> do you need to format it first, dd should just overwrite what is on there, then from te config you can make the fs take up the whole disk
[21:53] <LowValueTarget> could try that... just erasing everything on the sd and making it free space

[23:11] <tripgod> Vi is old
[23:12] <plugwash> mostly I use mcedit where available (and if i'm root it very quickly WILL be available)
[23:12] <Gosy> vim : command not found
[23:12] <rymate1234> nano then
[23:12] <plugwash> I also use gedit quite a bit
[23:12] <scummos> install vim then
[23:12] <tripgod> Most distros will sym link vi to vim
[23:12] <scummos> also kate > gedit :)
[23:12] <Gosy> how do i edit in nano?
[23:13] <scummos> Gosy: just type
[23:13] <scummos> but it's nano... it's bad :(
[23:13] <Gosy> ...?
[23:13] <tripgod> Doesnt it tell you on the bottom?
[23:13] <scummos> Gosy: spend five minutes to learn vim, seriously :)
[23:13] <Gosy> i dont have vim mate
[23:13] <tos9> s/minutes/lifetimes
[23:13] <scummos> Gosy: get it
[23:13] <Gosy> and i cant inatall anything
[23:13] <plugwash> scummos, kate is nice but I find the load times very long (probablly partly because I don't use any other kde apps most of the time so it has to load everything from scratch)
[23:13] <scummos> oh okay
[23:13] <Gosy> coz my network/interface ia messed up
[23:14] <scummos> plugwash: really? for me it starts in under a second
[23:14] <tripgod> I dont think the pi is noob-friendly
[23:14] <scummos> plugwash: I do load kded and stuff on boot, tough... so yeah, maybe it's that

[23:14] <tripgod> Kde daemon?
[23:14] <artag> it really is worth learning the basics of vi, you'll often find yourself in a unix with nothing else
[23:14] <scummos> yes
[23:15] * nils_2 (~nils_2@unaffiliated/nils-2/x-2480262) Quit (Read error: Operation timed out)
[23:15] <tripgod> Well thats why it loads in a second
[23:16] <scummos> tripgod: yeah, but since I use lots of apps like telepathy-kde, kate, kdevelop, konversation, konsole, kmix, klipper ... from KDE, it doesn't really matter for me

[23:16] <s5fs> learning vim is a long process, if you wish to learn more than just basic navigation and switching modes
[23:16] <Gosy> nano worked like a charm
[23:16] <plugwash> Gosy, nano is fine for tasks like editing the interfaces file
[23:16] <plugwash> whatever the elitists say
[23:16] <scummos> s5fs: yes, but if you learned it once, you can always just expand your knowledge
[23:16] <scummos> also it has very nice syntax highlighting!
[23:16] <Gosy> just to find a normal page of the interface now
[23:16] <s5fs> scummos: agreed, i'm working on building up my vimfoo these days
[23:17] <scummos> oh also, kate has a very nice vi mode! :D

[23:17] <tripgod> Heh. Vimfoo
[23:17] <artag> you only need insert, escape, write, quit to get yourself out of a hole. everything else is just icing
[23:17] <scummos> yep
[23:17] <s5fs> what if you enter the basement? (ie, :vi)
[23:17] <s5fs> or get into record mode? haha! those always tend to hork newbies

[23:18] <Gosy> Thanks
[23:18] <Gosy> guys
[23:18] <scummos> s5fs: pressing ESC and :q a sufficient number of times usually helps :D
[23:18] <Gosy> nano did the magic for me
[23:18] <scummos> Gosy: cool, now you can install vim!
[23:18] <s5fs> but yes, basics is good enough, but basics aren't enough to justify learning vim (imho), esp if the person is new to nix in general (lots to learn)
[23:18] <Gosy> scummos
[23:18] <scummos> well vim has very nice highlighting for *everyting*, that alone is reason enough to make it preferrable for me over nano
[23:18] <Gosy> sudo apt-get install vim ?
[23:18] <s5fs> for the pi tho, i dunno
[23:18] <scummos> Gosy: yep
[23:19] <scummos> Gosy: also apt-cache search vim, and if there's some extra highlighting package or so, get that too
[23:19] * agrajag (~agrajag^@CAcert/Assurer/agrajag) has joined #raspberrypi
[23:19] <s5fs> scummos: right, but now you've encroached into 'programmer-land', where vim really excels
[23:19] <scummos> Gosy: also put ":syntax on" in your ~/.vimrc
[23:19] <Gosy> scummos: i was actually trying to set a static ip adress while following a youtube guide.. but failed lol
[23:19] <scummos> s5fs: don't you find syntax highlighting very useful when editing, like, init scripts or htaccess files or whatever? I do
[23:19] <rymate1234> ^
[23:20] <s5fs> yeah, but it's not vital
[23:20] <scummos> and vim actually has highlighting for most of them which is close to syntax checking
[23:20] <scummos> yeah, not vital, sure... but then again, you could also use cat :)

[23:21] <s5fs> same
[23:21] <s5fs> i wrote my own line editor once as a programming exercise, it was called 'edd'
[23:21] <scummos> :D
[23:22] <s5fs> okay, so vim is a super rad tool. i recommend it if someone is willing to make the investment, no question.

[23:22] <s5fs> Gosy: vim's power is not in simple line editing, and i agree it's totally bizarro the firest few times you use it
[23:23] <Gosy> whata hell is this
[23:23] <Gosy> "shell returned 127"

[23:24] <Gosy> doesn't work
[23:24] <s5fs> i mean, it's a $35 computer, what could go wrong??
[23:24] <s5fs> are you in vim or..?
[23:24] <Gosy> ye
[23:24] <Gosy> vim atm
[23:24] <s5fs> okay
[23:24] <Gosy> can't get out
[23:24] <Gosy> from a file atm
[23:24] <s5fs> hit escape twice
[23:24] <bparker> type :q
[23:24] <s5fs> then type :q!
[23:24] <s5fs> and enter
[23:24] <Gosy> getting error when typing
[23:24] <Gosy> :q!
[23:24] <Gosy> ah now
[23:25] <Gosy> after the 2 escapes

[23:25] <Gosy> bye bye vim
[23:25] <xci> vim is a great tool, but might be rough if someone is not giving you the needed instructions for the five first minutes
[23:25] <Gosy> welcome nano
[23:25] <xci> and so the world lost another great hacker
[23:26] <xci> ^^ - just kidding
[23:26] <s5fs> haha!
[23:26] <scummos> Gosy: take just 5 minutes to learn vim, ok? I'll tell you how to use it
[23:26] <scummos> Gosy: if you don't like it afterwards you can still go to nano
[23:26] <s5fs> man, i keep losing friends to OSX and textmate / sublime text 2
[23:26] <Gosy> i tried vim
[23:26] <Gosy> but it was more confusing mate
[23:26] <s5fs> i feel like the last linux guy in certain communities, sucks
[23:26] <Gosy> do i still have to hit "i" to edit?
[23:26] <scummos> Gosy: everything is confusing if you don't have any idea how to use it... especially vim
[23:27] <scummos> Gosy: yes. there's two main modes: the command mode, and the edit mode
[23:27] <s5fs> Gosy: you don't just 'use' vim, you learn it over a series of frustrated mistakes ;-)
[23:27] <scummos> Gosy: it starts in command mode; and you can go to the insert mode by pressing i
[23:27] <Gosy> s5fs: i can clearly see that lol
[23:27] <tripgod> Gosy you really need to google "vi cheat sheet"
[23:27] <scummos> Gosy: then you can edit (and in vim, also move the cursor and stuff) and by ESC, you get back to command mode
[23:27] <s5fs> Gosy: so, i'd still recommend that you use whatever the easiest editor is for you TODAY, and then pick up vim later
[23:27] <scummos> Gosy: in command mode, you can for example do ":w" to save your file, or ":q" to quit.
[23:27] <xci> s5fs: I know how you feel... I used to absolutely love vim, then I started doing more iPhone development and basically did everything with xcode
[23:27] <Gosy> im really new to linux shell
[23:28] <scummos> Gosy: and that's basically it; there's a huge lot of things it can do, but you can pick them up over time.
[23:28] <artag> ZZ in command mode is also uesful, does save & quite
[23:28] <xci> now I just miss the times I was writing just some stupid C++ algorithms stuff all the nights
[23:28] <scummos> Gosy: also put ":syntax on" in your ~/.vimrc to get nice highlighting (you'll like it!)
[23:28] <artag> carefull, he might get to like it
[23:29] <s5fs> xci: i've spent the last 3yrs in visual studio and eclipse, very refreshing to get back to vim for my programming
[23:29] <scummos> s5fs: kate with vi mode! :))
[23:29] <tripgod> Or throw linux out the window because he doesnt want to rtfm

[23:30] <s5fs> scummos: i'm not big into kde nor do i wanna pick up yet another ide-looking tool. i can still run eclipse or netbeans if i wanna live there ;-)
[23:31] <xci> artag: :D - I have a funny story about that! ZZ saves and quits, while zz centers the line under the cursor. Once I entered a bunch commands in a row, but little did I know, caps lock was on. If you have used vim a lot, you know that a lot of commands with caps lock on tend to do stupid stuff, and you have to press a lot of 'u'. However, at the time I had the habit to press 'zz' at the end of each bunch of commands to have the last modified line in
[23:31] <s5fs> vim is just plain funky and i very much like that
[23:31] <s5fs> xci: yup, that's why i consider ZZ a bad habit
[23:31] <scummos> s5fs: kate is very much non-ide-like, there's kdevelop which really is an ide
[23:31] <scummos> (i happen to be involved with kdevelop :D)
[23:31] <scummos> (which is why I feel like I have to advertise it a bit!)
[23:31] <xci> s5fs: yeah
[23:32] <xci> s5fs: I steer clear of z nowadays unless I want to quit with one hand
[23:32] <artag> heh
[23:32] <artag> i'm tempted to disable caps lock, it's never useful
[23:33] <s5fs> scummos: haha, okay, that's cool then.
[23:33] <s5fs> remap capslock to something useful. i'm thinking about it for my leader key
[23:34] <tripgod> I'm a ZZ man all the way
[23:34] <xci> yeah, I think ZZ is fine, zz is super dangerous
[23:35] <s5fs> yeah and zzzz is like twice as bad as zz (the second set of zz deletes your facebook profile, but also empties your bank acct)
[23:35] <xci> :D
[23:36] <artag> that's ok, i don't have facebook and my bank account is already empty
[23:37] <Tachyon`> zzzzzz changes the cosmological constant. this is bad. don't do that.
[23:37] <rymate1234> zz?
[23:37] <rymate1234> ZZ?
[23:37] <s5fs> rymate1234: careful!
[23:37] <scummos> Tachyon`: hahaha

[23:39] <thirdwhl> hi all, looking for a suitable battery pack for my Raspberry Pi and am looking at mobile emergency chargers as a possibility... there's one I see on eBay that provides 12Ah at 5.3V, would the every 300mV cause my RPi any woe, or should this be fine?

[23:42] <thirdwhl> thanks
[23:42] <Tachyon`> although I wouldn't expect .3v to do much harm, risk it if you will
[23:43] <Sonny_Jim> Hmm, it appears that my wireless dongle craps itself whenever the USB bus is busy: [ 5771.822957] zd1211rw 1-1.2:1.0: TX-stall detected, reseting device...
[23:43] <rikkib> Risc OS seems useable... Interesting.
[23:43] <thirdwhl> does it pass that straight through the USB ports?
[23:43] <artag> apparently the usb voltage spec is 5.0 +- 0.25, so you'd only be 50mV over. and some will be lost in the pi itself

[23:45] <artag> later ones have no usb fuses
[23:46] <artag> but the inlet fuse is quite likely to lose you 50mV
