[0:00] <Opinie> Lartza: http://pastebin.com/Be259wWn
[0:00] <Opinie> that's what it says on my hosts file at the moment
[0:00] <Lartza> Yeah then your raspberry pi shows up as "raspberrypi" from software like samba, and if you want to change that change the last line and /etc/hostname
[0:01] <Lartza> But it won't let you access it with raspberrypi from other computers
[0:01] <Lartza> You can get a domain for it though but otherwise you have to set it on every computer
[0:01] <axion> you want to put the lan ip, not the loopback ip
[0:01] <Opinie> ok
[0:01] <Lartza> axion, Raspbian works fine like that
[0:02] <axion> and you can get rid of the ip6 lines if you dont use ip6
[0:02] <Lartza> It's the default install
[0:02] <axion> it actually speeds things up
[0:02] <Lartza> Opinie, Compile a kernel without ipv6 ;)
[0:03] <Lartza> I haven't actually compiled a kernel for RPi since it isn't as bad as desktop distro kernels
[0:03] <Lartza> For some obvious reasons
[0:03] <Opinie> how difficult is compiling a kernel?
[0:03] <fuzz1981> you can run a local dns server and have all your computers resolve it by name
[0:03] <Opinie> I don't know C or anything
[0:03] <Lartza> Opinie, It's not
[0:04] * Leeky_afk is now known as Leeky
[0:04] <Lartza> Opinie, You get the sources, run make menuconfig, change the settings and then make
[0:04] <axion> it onsists of about 3 commands and going through a menu making selections and learning about your computer's specific hardware
[0:04] <Opinie> how do I know what settings I want and what settings I don't want?
[0:04] <axion> the help button
[0:05] <Lartza> Opinie, On RPi everything hardware related you want and I am not sure how many extra features there are to disable
[0:05] <Lartza> But generally, lspci and lsmod on a currently running system and leave the drivers for your hardware
[0:05] <fuzz1981> zcat /proc/config.gz > .config
[0:05] <fuzz1981> that will start you out with a default config to work from
[0:05] <fuzz1981> rather the configuration of the kernel that you're currently running
[0:05] <Lartza> Hmm
[0:06] <Lartza> I'll take that Hmm back not even sure what I was thinking

[0:19] <mdim> anyone here that managed to get this device working with openwrt? http://wiki.openwrt.org/toh/buffalo/wzr-hp-g300nh2
[0:19] <frikinz> timmmaaaayyy: your wireless device is seen in iwconfig right?

[0:22] <frikinz> part of wireless-tools
[0:22] <timmmaaaayyy> i can't even "man" on raspbmc
[0:22] <hnsr> got a wzr-ag300h, I love it
[0:22] <timmmaaaayyy> oh goodness
[0:23] <timmmaaaayyy> raspbmc must suck
[0:23] <timmmaaaayyy> let me try this on debian
[0:23] <hnsr> 128mb ram, 32mb flash, even a big-endian cpu to test code on :D
[0:23] <mdim> Disconnect: nh2 is a bit different, and hence has a different image
[0:23] * Kripton is now known as kripton
[0:23] <timmmaaaayyy> wait???.we should be able to make this work on raspbmc
[0:24] <mdim> uh, only now I realize that I'm not in #openwrt :)
[0:25] <Disconnect> yah
[0:25] <Disconnect> and lol
[0:25] * Kyzz_ is now known as Kyzz
[0:26] <Disconnect> timmmaaaayyy: for raspbmc there is a channel. in raspbian man works :) (fwiw my raspbmc pi is hardwired since I have a switch right there for consoles, old xbmc box, tv, etc)
[0:27] * Disconnect has used up all 8 ports on that switch. I might have a problem..
[0:27] <timmmaaaayyy> i just jumped in their channel. i'll see what they say. thanks all!!

[0:41] <mattwj2002> hi all
[0:42] * Haaninjo (~anders@ Quit (Quit: Ex-Chat)
[0:44] <Lartza> Tomorrow I will be hopefully not flashing a MX25L4005 with an RPi (with SPI) but if I do, how? :S
[0:45] * mattwj2002 dances a jing
[0:46] <axion> frikinz: gzip file.img. then when you write it, you can do it fast in one step: dd if=file.img.gz | gunzip | dd of=/dev/mmcblk0
[0:46] <mattwj2002> I got my new case
[0:46] <mattwj2002> now I can actually use my pi
[0:46] <mattwj2002> :)
[0:47] * luc4 (~luca@host125-191-dynamic.8-87-r.retail.telecomitalia.it) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:47] <luc4> Hi! Anyone who is able to use the egl_render VideoCore component?
[0:47] <frikinz> axion: how is that solving my issue to resize .img? I don't need 2G for a so small device. The 2G usb stick also has another distro. 800M max for raspbian. I'm using parted now
[0:48] <damo22> what does it mean when you see a hdmi screen with square RBG spectrum
[0:48] <Patagonicus> axion: That is totally redundant. gunzip -c file.img.gz >/dev/mmcblk0 will work just as fine and save you two processes and two pipes
[0:48] <damo22> RGB*
[0:48] <frikinz> damo22: did you manage to get what you wanted with out of tree building?
[0:48] <mattwj2002> I also have 32 GB sd card for my pi now
[0:49] <mattwj2002> w00t w00t!
[0:49] <hnsr> nice
[0:49] * nils_2 (~nils_2@unaffiliated/nils-2/x-2480262) Quit (Quit: WeeChat 0.4.0-dev)
[0:49] * Cykey (~textual@modemcable101.219-162-184.mc.videotron.ca) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:49] <frikinz> I have a 2GB SD and a 800MB USB partition for / :)
[0:49] <damo22> frikinz: i managed to compile my driver out of tree and my device works now, but the kernel needs tweaking because it is not servicing timer interrupts quick enough for the usb spec
[0:50] <frikinz> damo22: so there is neither a kernel package nor kernel source nor kernel headers?
[0:50] <frikinz> damo22: you went through github?
[0:50] <frikinz> kernel source *package
[0:50] <damo22> frikinz: there are in the raspbian repo, but for an old kernel that doesnt have 512Mb
[0:51] <timmmaaaayyy> ok i got wifi connected???.but it won't connect at boot
[0:51] * mattwj2002 (~Matt@wikisource/pdpc.active.mattwj2002) Quit (Read error: No route to host)
[0:51] <timmmaaaayyy> isn't that what "auto wlan0" does?
[0:51] <damo22> frikinz: i didnt use github
[0:52] <damo22> i have 3.2.0-3-rpi from the repo with headers + kernel
[0:53] * jimerickson (~jimericks@pdpc/supporter/active/jimerickson) Quit (Ping timeout: 246 seconds)
[0:53] * mattwj2002 (~Matt@wikisource/pdpc.active.mattwj2002) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:54] * luigy (~luigy@nat-alex-runet-out-7.rutgers.edu) Quit (Quit: Computer has gone to sleep.)
[0:54] <damo22> then i tried using the latest github kernel and cross compiling it with config file from 3.2.27+ with a tiny tweak and it wont boot and gives me a colourful screen on hdmi
[0:54] <mattwj2002> sorry ran out of juice
[0:56] * Gallomimia (~Gallo@d154-20-247-171.bchsia.telus.net) Quit (Quit: Gallomimia)
[0:56] <damo22> i used raspberrypi-linux-ada8b44.tar.gz
[0:56] * akiwiguy|away is now known as akiwiguy
[0:59] <damo22> i copied vmlinux (not vmlinuz or zImage) from the root of the tree and used it as my kernel.img
[0:59] <frikinz> damo22: ok :( I'll try from github tomorrow also. I'm now first doing a slimmed down raspbian img, put it on usb, overclock
[0:59] <damo22> is that the correct thing to do?
[1:00] <damo22> i have a feeling i need zImage
[1:00] <frikinz> damo22: I can't answer, I have the device since not long
[1:00] * luigy (~luigy@ has joined #raspberrypi
[1:02] <frikinz> kernel.img: Linux kernel ARM boot executable zImage (little-endian)
[1:02] <damo22> how did you create that output
[1:02] * du (~fake@ has joined #raspberrypi
[1:03] <frikinz> file kernel.img
[1:03] <damo22> from a pi?
[1:03] <damo22> when i run that on my pc it says zImage: data
[1:03] * uski (~uski@unaffiliated/uski) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:03] <damo22> must be binutils or something
[1:03] <damo22> some sort of file magic
[1:03] * AeroNotix (~xeno@aqx252.neoplus.adsl.tpnet.pl) Quit (Quit: Uploading hax.....)
[1:03] <frikinz> I guess you can. I've done it from my raspbian.img with sudo mount raspbian.img x/ -o offset=$((512*8192))
[1:04] <damo22> wow nice
[1:04] <frikinz> if you have mmcblk0p1 in etc/fstab then the first partition is mounted in /boot
[1:04] <frikinz> yes nice. also fdisk -l raspbian.img
[1:04] * bertrik (~quassel@rockbox/developer/bertrik) Quit (Ping timeout: 256 seconds)
[1:05] * Alfihar (~Yuuka@siberios.co.uk) Quit (Quit: Bye Bye)
[1:05] <damo22> useful :)

[1:06] * Kyzz (~quassel@ Quit (Quit: No Ping reply in 180 seconds.)
[1:06] <frikinz> so I've mounted with offset 122880, taken a static qemu, put it in usr/bin and chrooted. from there used debfoster to remove all what I don't need
[1:06] <frikinz> I don't need X
[1:06] * Kyzz (~quassel@ has joined #raspberrypi
[1:07] <damo22> hahha
[1:07] <damo22> i dont need X either
[1:08] <frikinz> I'm a bit doing it the hard way: from outside the pi
[1:08] <damo22> what is the qemu for
[1:08] <frikinz> but where's the fun otherwise
[1:08] * jimerickson (~jimericks@pdpc/supporter/active/jimerickson) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:08] <frikinz> damo22: emulator so that my x86 laptop can execute the pi arm binaries
[1:08] <damo22> oh to emulate arm?
[1:08] <damo22> clever
[1:09] <frikinz> yes, just to run dpkg and aptitude remove stuff. also I'm pretty sure I could have done it from outside. well, postrm things might break if they run binaries
[1:09] <frikinz> ok. bed time for me. bye
[1:09] <damo22> catch you later
[1:13] <Opinie> do you guys use firewalls on your pis?
[1:13] <Opinie> nd gals
[1:14] <SpeedEvil> yes
[1:14] <linuxstb> no
[1:14] <SpeedEvil> though for no good reason
[1:14] <SpeedEvil> just that it's not hooked up to the external Internet.
[1:15] <mattwj2002> software firewalls in linux are stupid imho
[1:15] <mattwj2002> unless are you talking about ipcop ;)
[1:15] <pksato> two lines of iptables make a power full firewall.
[1:16] <Opinie> mm, I'd just want one that doesn't immediately stop me from using samba etc
[1:16] <damo22> well if you want to block all incoming connections to your lan it makes sense to do it on the router wan side with 2 rules
[1:16] <mattwj2002> ufw is interesting anyone ever use it?
[1:17] <pksato> firewall to prevent intrusion from local lan?
[1:17] <mattwj2002> pksato: it depends
[1:18] * m8 (~mor@unaffiliated/m8) Quit (Quit: Sto andando via)
[1:18] <mattwj2002> are you talking a business server or a home
[1:18] * Cykey (~textual@modemcable101.219-162-184.mc.videotron.ca) Quit (Quit: Computer has gone to sleep.)
[1:18] <mattwj2002> a business server you might want a firewall on
[1:18] <mattwj2002> don't allow this group to access this server
[1:18] <mattwj2002> you can do the same thing on a layer 3 switch or a router
[1:19] <Opinie> how could I get a firewall that doesn't stop traffic from the local lan?
[1:19] <mattwj2002> Opinie: what are you looking at stopping?
[1:20] <Opinie> err
[1:20] <Opinie> I'm just worried someone manages to intrude from the external internet
[1:20] * HashNuke (~HashNuke@ Quit (Ping timeout: 264 seconds)
[1:20] <mattwj2002> on your pi?
[1:20] <Opinie> yes
[1:20] <mattwj2002> is it directly connected to the Internet?
[1:20] <pksato> Opinie: dont run internet services on pi.
[1:21] <Opinie> well there's a router
[1:21] <mattwj2002> running nat?
[1:21] <pksato> no ssh, no http, no ftp, no etc.
[1:21] <Opinie> nah
[1:21] <Opinie> it's not running nat
[1:21] <damo22> wow my custom kernel works!!! with zImage
[1:21] <mattwj2002> so you have all public ip address in your internal network?
[1:22] <mattwj2002> what is your ip address on your pi?
[1:22] <mattwj2002> does it start with 10. 172. or 192.?
[1:22] <damo22> Linux raspberrypi 3.2.27++ #1 PREEMPT Sat Dec 1 07:43:06 EST 2012 armv6l GNU/Linux
[1:22] <Opinie> 217
[1:22] * HashNuke (~HashNuke@ has joined #raspberrypi
[1:22] <mattwj2002> really?
[1:22] <mattwj2002> what the heck
[1:22] <mattwj2002> why are you using public addressing?
[1:22] <SpeedEvil> here
[1:23] <damo22> 192.168.x.x
[1:23] <Opinie> yeah, maybe I'm completely lost and should just read up on IPs before asking anything
[1:23] * Leeky_afk is now known as Leeky
[1:24] * sraue (~stephan@xbmc/staff/sraue) Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[1:24] <pksato> This my desktop is connected direct to public net work. (cable modem). And, dont have any kind of firewall. :)
[1:24] <damo22> my interrupts are sitting at 100/sec at idle now
[1:24] <damo22> (timer)
[1:24] <mattwj2002> I would love to hook up a linux box to the Internet
[1:24] <mattwj2002> and run a sniffer on that port
[1:24] <mattwj2002> hehe
[1:25] <mattwj2002> I am curious what can I say
[1:25] <mattwj2002> :)
[1:25] <Opinie> the router my pi is connected to does have a firewall though
[1:25] <mattwj2002> see if there are any bgp routes or anything hitting my modem
[1:26] <mattwj2002> besides my requested packets
[1:26] <mattwj2002> searches from china etc
[1:26] <mattwj2002> :P
[1:28] <SpeedEvil> well...
[1:28] <SpeedEvil> set your pi up as the 'DMZ' machine for your router
[1:28] <SpeedEvil> or turn on bridge mode
[1:29] <mattwj2002> SpeedEvil: I could
[1:29] <mattwj2002> that is true
[1:29] <mattwj2002> I doubt a pi would handle wireshark well
[1:29] <mattwj2002> though
[1:30] <lunra> Ran alright on my EeePC
[1:30] <SpeedEvil> tcpdump is lightweight
[1:30] <lunra> Depends a lot on your line speed
[1:30] <deep13> you can capture to a file with tcpdump, and then view it elsewhere
[1:30] <deep13> (with wireshark)
[1:30] <mattwj2002> good point deep13
[1:30] <SpeedEvil> 3 Meg :-\
[1:30] <mattwj2002> 12 Mbps here
[1:31] <mattwj2002> I really want a 30 though
[1:31] <lunra> 8Mbps on a good day. anyone else from Aus?
[1:31] <mattwj2002> I could get 105 Mbps but it is $199 per month
[1:32] <mattwj2002> that is consumer grade

[3:30] <damo22> i prefer mine with an ethernet port
[3:31] <plugwash> Since the Pi was released i've been musing the option of pairing the model A with http://cpc.farnell.com/1/1/56475-hub-3x-usb-ethernet-blkgrey-psg90189.html
[3:32] <damo22> oh
[3:32] <plugwash> total cost is about the same as a model B (that hub comes with a PSU that is more than adequate to power the Pi even though it isn't mentioned on the website), an extra usb port is likely to be very handy and i've found the asix usb ethernet in that product less troublesome than the smsc one used on the Pi
[3:33] <damo22> interesting
[3:34] <plugwash> in particular i've found the smsc chip and the bridging functionality in the linux kernel do not get one
[3:34] <plugwash> *on
[3:35] <damo22> plugwash: considering your ample research on this can you recommend a mains powered usb hub that can deliver 1.5-2A with at least 3 ports?
[3:36] * Cykey (~textual@modemcable101.219-162-184.mc.videotron.ca) has joined #raspberrypi
[3:36] <plugwash> honestly i've never really tested how much power hubs can deliver

[3:37] <damo22> cool but i need a 240V AU model
[3:38] <lars_t_h> damo22, no concurrency is about computer science. Trouble with concurrency happens the same thing is used/modified in parallel
[3:39] <lars_t_h> damo22, if they only read that isn't a problem, but updating the same thing in parallel is very bad
[3:39] <fuzz1981> or updating and reading
[3:40] <lars_t_h> damo22, in other words this is about software
[3:40] <fuzz1981> hardware has concurrency considerations as well :)
[3:40] <damo22> lars_t_h: in that case i still fail to see how a clever scheduler would not help somehow
[3:40] * PhonicUK (~PhonicUK@pdpc/supporter/student/phonicuk) has joined #raspberrypi
[3:41] <fuzz1981> and concurrency is about having the software arbitrate the hardware
[3:41] <lars_t_h> fuzz1981, true - with timing issues and more
[3:41] <damo22> are you saying that the software currently mixes inputs and outputs for different parts that affect each other in a feedback loop
[3:42] <fuzz1981> no
[3:42] <lars_t_h> damo22, urelated software
[3:42] <lars_t_h> *unrelated
[3:42] <damo22> oh dang
[3:43] <damo22> thats bad
[3:43] <lars_t_h> scheduling and USB I/O timing is very different
[3:43] <fuzz1981> whats bad?
[3:44] <ball> Putting a 32-bit processor on an 8-bit bus probably qualifies ;-)
[3:44] <damo22> if something operates on a separate irq then it should not have its input depending on the output of something operating on a different irq is that correct?
[3:45] <fuzz1981> ball: what 8 bit bus
[3:45] <fuzz1981> damo22: not sure i understand what you're trying to say .. some things have dedicated interrupts, some are shared
[3:45] <lars_t_h> damo22, USB is a very complex beast with 13 layers (if i renember it correctly)
[3:46] <damo22> 13?? crap
[3:46] <damo22> thats a lot
[3:46] <ball> fuzz1981: Just in general.
[3:46] <ball> fuzz1981: STE-bus, let's say.
[3:46] <fuzz1981> ah :)
[3:48] <damo22> but when i recompiled my rpi kernel with a different HZ value and removed the timer idling thing i got slightly better usb performance

[5:07] <ShiftPlusOne> GabrialDestruir, I tried it with nginx and lighttpd... didn't work too well for me.
[5:08] <ShiftPlusOne> maybe it's because I was using sqlite, but changing pages took forever. nginx and lighttpd would time out on php requests, so I had to up the timeout times.

[5:11] <fuzz1981> O(n) time complexity stuff all over the place

[5:12] <fuzz1981> a compiler won't make a sequential loop much faster hehe .. a proper algorithm will (hash table, btree, skiplist, bloom filter, etc)
[5:12] <fuzz1981> LOC doesn't always matter
[5:12] <ShiftPlusOne> Yeah.... yet if you bring up that sort of thing on some programming channels or forums you're told to get a better computer O_o
[5:13] <fuzz1981> a program with more lines can run much faster than a shorter one :)
[5:13] <GabrialDestruir> Depends on the lines and what they're doing I imagine. xD

[5:14] <ShiftPlusOne> On the other hand, modern computers can handle a lot, so if the time it takes to optimize your algorithms exceeds the benefit you're likely to gain (most likely none), then why bother.
[5:14] <GabrialDestruir> Virtualbox doesn't like windows 8 much I'm guessing....
[5:15] <Grievre> like a lot of people still avoid using recursion even in cases where the recursive solution is the most readable
[5:15] <fuzz1981> yeah but the problem is still there on a modern computer .. the software gets slower as the hardware gets faster :)

[5:15] <fuzz1981> i love coding on the pis .. if i can make something fly on it, it will be just that much better on a Xeon
[5:16] <Grievre> I honestly feel like if the recursive way to do something is the most intuitive, do it. Converting it to an iterative solution never gains you anything
[5:16] <GabrialDestruir> something inefficient is happening.... for some reason VBox is writing to both my C:\ and my D:\ while making this backup....
[5:16] <ShiftPlusOne> Hm, my computer seems to run everything fine. I don't have to wait for things to finnish (unless it's a render or a compile), I don't have to deal with GUI lag or anything of the sort. I am not sure that it is that much of a problem now.
[5:16] <Grievre> either A) it's tail-recursive, in which case the compiler will optimize out the tail call
[5:16] <Grievre> or B) you have to reinvent the stack anyway

[5:17] <lars_t_h> apropos recursion, i if use (tail) recursion, i don't call the function again but uses a goto - compiler don not always optimize away use of stack space
[5:17] <Grievre> lars_t_h: any sane compiler will
[5:17] <Loggiew> using arduPi library I get the following error, any ideas? undefined reference to `SerialPi::SerialPi()'
[5:17] <Grievre> like that is a very very very basic optimization
[5:17] <Grievre> to the point where some languages--languages from the 80s and 90s--have it in their spec that compilers MUST do it
[5:17] <ShiftPlusOne> If you're working on a project, why cost your employer money optimizing your code if they are not going to see the difference anyway? (Playing devil's advocate here)
[5:18] <fuzz1981> i deal with big data, it's sad when a 4 node hadoop cluster can be beat by a single computer with some custom C code lol
[5:18] <fuzz1981> it depends what you're doing
[5:18] <GabrialDestruir> Don't waste money on optimizing code.... write optimized code to begin with :D

[5:21] <Grievre> although that's improved
[5:21] <fuzz1981> haha yeah pre jit java was awful
[5:21] <GabrialDestruir> Oh no, if I recall with Azureus it was CPU grind and a lot of it...
[5:21] <GabrialDestruir> sure it had disk grind too... but that program was horrible on the CPU
[5:22] <Grievre> fuzz1981: but I think optimizing for size is more important for most situations... stuff is rarely cpu-bound these days
[5:22] <Grievre> at least I personally run into memory bottlenecks more than CPU bottlenecks
[5:22] <GabrialDestruir> and unfortunately there's still quite a few programs out there like that....
[5:22] <Grievre> memory or IO
[5:23] <fuzz1981> usually IO for me
[5:23] <GabrialDestruir> You start them up and bam your CPU is hit hard.
[5:23] <fuzz1981> but not always
[5:24] <fuzz1981> i don't run X on the pis either
[5:24] <ShiftPlusOne> Anyway what wayland is like when it comes to memory usage?
[5:24] <GabrialDestruir> My issue atm is IO, I have no clue why this is writing to both C: and D: when the VM exists solely on D: .-.
[5:25] <fuzz1981> *shrug* writing log files or something to a vbox folder?
[5:25] <GabrialDestruir> I guess.... it's annoying though.
[5:25] <fuzz1981> i built a play 8x velociraptor raid today hehe
[5:26] <GabrialDestruir> I guess my lesson for today is don't use bs=4096 xD
[5:27] <fuzz1981> iostat was showing 150k tps when making ext4 on it .. took no time to make an 8TB FS
[5:28] <Grievre> fuzz1981: I just don't understand how a computer scientist could see the problem of "computers aren't good at optimizing code" and think "All programmers should learn how to optimize" and not "we should make better optimizers"
[5:28] <GabrialDestruir> All programmers SHOULD learn to optimize
[5:29] <GabrialDestruir> It shouldn't be a matter of write some code then optimize.....
[5:29] <GabrialDestruir> learn to be optimal and write your code optimized as possible to begin with...
[5:29] <Grievre> I disagree. I used to think that way and as a result my code is completely impossible for other people to understand
[5:30] <Grievre> because I automatically insert "optimized" versions of things that are non-obvious to someone who doesn't do the same
[5:31] <Grievre> making your code maintainable is a higher priority than making it optimally fast/small
[5:31] <Grievre> because code which is not maintainable might as well not exist

[5:35] * yofel_ (~quassel@ubuntu/member/yofel) has joined #raspberrypi
[5:36] <Grievre> fuzz1981: so another thing is, if you are writing your code to be omniportable, there is no such thing as an optimal way to do a certain thing because it depends on the particular arch you're writing for
[5:37] <fuzz1981> yeah i generally don't write software thats used by others, so i know exactly where it will run
[5:37] <Grievre> Ah yeah see
[5:37] <fuzz1981> but i don't optimize often with ASM or arch specific stuff
[5:37] <ShiftPlusOne> It's a subjective call and the truth is somewhere in between. If you're going to be a programmer, understanding computers is, to say the least, a good idea. Knowing how state machines work and the architecture of the CPU is very much worth knowing. If you train the next generation to only be 'users' and only code in abstractions which hide what actually happens behind the compiler, you'll have very few people who'll actually understand
[5:37] <ShiftPlusOne> what they're doing. </rant>
[5:38] <fuzz1981> ShiftPlusOne: absolutely
[5:38] <fuzz1981> which is exactly what most 'coders' do
[5:38] <Grievre> I mean one way to look at it is like
[5:38] <Grievre> expecting everyone to know how a machine works from top to bottom, is not an efficient use of human mental capacity
[5:39] <fuzz1981> Grievre is advocating the opposite hehe .. make the computer "adapt" to the human .. it doesn't work like that
[5:39] <Grievre> it doesn't work like that /yet/
[5:39] <fuzz1981> actually it does
[5:39] <ShiftPlusOne> yeah, I was adressing Grievre's point =)

[5:42] <fuzz1981> the big picture for me is on a whiteboard or paper .. not a high level language
[5:42] * thomashunter (~thomashun@c-67-167-132-241.hsd1.mi.comcast.net) Quit (Quit: thomashunter)
[5:43] <fuzz1981> but i'll prototype in a high level language sometimes
[5:43] <fuzz1981> or use it for tasks that won't hurt performance
[5:44] <mhz> there's always something before something else, a lower level. it does not stop, i think
[5:44] <Grievre> fuzz1981: so the problem with doing things at a low level is that you have to redo them when that low level changes
[5:45] <GabrialDestruir> See... my problem with programming isn't even optimizing code -sighs-
[5:45] <Grievre> what happens when computers become trinary?
[5:45] <Grievre> when they stop being electronic?
[5:45] <ShiftPlusOne> mhz, it depends on where you want to stop. I think it makes sense to stop at logic gates.
[5:45] <Grievre> when EPIC is the norm?
[5:45] <ShiftPlusOne> after that you're just getting into a bit of (wrong) chemistry and then quantum physics.
[5:46] <mhz> ShiftPlusOne: right, it's definately a personal matter. exactly. and then philosphy perhaps. what a wonderful thing, the human brain
[5:46] <GabrialDestruir> I imagine if computers ever shift from electronic into biological computer... we're going to have a lot bigger issues than higher or lower level
[5:46] <ShiftPlusOne> Grievre, then we won't have anybody who knows how to write a compiler because they have all be trained to think in abstractions. =P
[5:46] <Grievre> fuzz1981: my preferred way of doing things is for most of the code to be in a HLL, profile it and pick out the routines that hog the most time, write C bindings to do those tasks
[5:46] <mhz> i don't see any wrong answer, as long as there are questions always being asked :)
[5:47] <GabrialDestruir> and frankly if that becomes the case I imagine the old ways of coding will be obsolete anyways.
[5:48] <Grievre> ShiftPlusOne: thinking in abstractions does not mean you don't know how to write a compiler ?_?
[5:49] <ShiftPlusOne> Sure it would... if you haven't been taught or bothered to learn what the computer does internally, good luck with that.
[5:49] <Grievre> ShiftPlusOne: the point is "what the computer does internally" is not the same for every computer
[5:49] <Grievre> but you want your code to run on every computer
[5:49] <ShiftPlusOne> .... so far it pretty much is.
[5:50] <Grievre> Yes, because people write code assuming computers work that way, no one can change how computers work
[5:50] <GabrialDestruir> Frankly once we've reached a point where programming is just drag and drop.... anyone will be able to make a program... and they won't even have to know why things work how they work...
[5:50] <Grievre> because then everyone would have to learn how to code all over again
[5:50] <Grievre> because no one fucking uses abstraction
[5:50] <Grievre> >:/
[5:50] <Grievre> GabrialDestruir: do you think everyone who wants to drive should know how an internal combustion engine works?
[5:50] <ShiftPlusOne> language a bit strong there O_o
[5:51] * ShiftPlusOne points to topic.
[5:51] <Grievre> wow really
[5:51] <Grievre> what is this third grade
[5:51] <GabrialDestruir> No, but everyone who wants to drive shouldn't be trying to put together a car?
[5:51] <Grievre> sigh
[5:51] <Grievre> I can never get my point across in this conversation
[5:52] <GabrialDestruir> and if you are trying to put together a car, I'd hope you'd have knowledge of an internal combustion engine
[5:52] <ShiftPlusOne> We get your point, it's just not a popular idea, so we're raising out objections. I actually like it and am wrapping my mind around some of where you're coming from.
[5:52] <Grievre> GabrialDestruir: actually most people who "put together" cars have very little idea how the engine works
[5:52] <fuzz1981> nahh thats just the thing that makes it go
[5:52] <Grievre> GabrialDestruir: because cars are made on an assembly line
[5:52] <Grievre> and everyone only knows how to do the one task that's their job
[5:52] <fuzz1981> which is also why most cars such
[5:52] <fuzz1981> *suck
[5:52] * Grievre facepalm
[5:53] <Grievre> if it wasn't done that way, cars would cost 10x as much
[5:53] <Grievre> and almost no one would have one
[5:53] <fuzz1981> it doesn't mean they don't suck :)
[5:53] <Xark> Grievre: Too much abstraction = slow. Sad truth with computers. However, if you don't care about speed, then any Turing complete system can emulate any other (with memory restrictions). I don't think it matters if binary, trinary or decimal based etc. to "compute".
[5:53] <timmmaaaayyy> powering the rpi from my TVs USB port???..AWESOME!!!!

[5:54] <GabrialDestruir> If a single person decided they wanted to build a car, or restore a car, or whatever, they have to know how it works.
[5:55] <Grievre> My point is when it comes to complex things like computers
[5:55] <Grievre> A lot of great things can only be accomplished when you manage complexity
[5:56] <Grievre> could a single person build a computer from the ground up? some people, perhaps. Would it be as good as the computers that are right now designed by hundreds if not thousands of people working in parallel? heck no
[5:56] <GabrialDestruir> Depends on that single person I imagine...
[5:56] <fuzz1981> and you don't think the things that make computers awesome are well thought out and optimized? hehe
[5:57] <fuzz1981> they work day in day out splitting hairs
[5:57] <Grievre> look if you are making the motherboard for a computer, you are taking several chips, placing them and connecting them together
[5:57] <Grievre> do you need to know the inner workings of each chip? no, you just need a datasheet which specifies how it works from an outside perspective
[5:57] <fuzz1981> lol
[5:58] <fuzz1981> someone who has a better idea of how things are supposed to work will make a better motherboard
[5:58] <fuzz1981> you don't just "connect things together"
[5:58] <GabrialDestruir> I imagine someone who works for a company like intel would have the knowledge at the very least of what should be what, and I imagine there's people that work there who know exactly how those little chips work.
[5:58] <fuzz1981> next time you're looking at traces on a motherboard check out all the funny squiggly lines on the memory busses and whatnot
[5:59] <fuzz1981> they're not just there for fun
[5:59] <ShiftPlusOne> fuzz1981, arguably that comes from reading the datasheet.
[5:59] <GabrialDestruir> Because that's their job, they get paid to design and make better all the little chips and stuff that go into a motherboard.
[5:59] <Grievre> my point is that modularity and abstraction are things which have been central to digital electronics since the beginning
[5:59] * heathkid (~heathkid@unaffiliated/heathkid) has joined #raspberrypi
[6:00] <fuzz1981> there's nothing wrong with abstraction
[6:00] <fuzz1981> until it gets too deep
[6:00] <piney0> another issue is by the time one person did the research, and assembled all the items in a motherboard, the technology would be vastly outdated.
[6:01] <GabrialDestruir> That's why we've optimized it piney0....
[6:01] <GabrialDestruir> You have the designs, you put them in optimized machines, and out pops everything you need in let's say an hour as opposed to weeks or months
[6:02] <Xark> Grievre: Was someone arguing against those? Modularity and abstraction are great. However, if you don't have good low-level detail oriented people taking care of the "foundation" then all the high level abstraction you add may not be able to "help" (if you care about performance).
[6:02] <Grievre> right you need SOME low-level people
[6:02] <Grievre> but not EVERY programmer needs to be good at low-level stuff
[6:02] <Grievre> which is the point I was making
[6:03] <ShiftPlusOne> Also, the earlier point about biological computers and so on. Whether the computer is a quantum one, or a biological one, it will still probably be a turing machine and have an instruction set similar to the ones we currently have. (Pure speculation there)
[6:03] <Xark> Grievre: Well, knowing those details typically helps the "performance" of the code. However there are always other factors about if it is "worth it" to learn the details (and which subset).
[6:04] <GabrialDestruir> Perhaps, but I imagine in the sense of a biological computer, instruction sets like that could become outdated very quickly, depends on the biological computer type I suppose.
[6:04] <Grievre> I think the increasing popularity and usability of FPGAs is pointing towards a future where the line between "software" and "hardware" is blurry
[6:05] <Grievre> like imagine if every computer had a processor with an FPGA on the side and any program can reconfigure the FPGA to do whatever
[6:05] * Leeky_afk is now known as Leeky
[6:05] <Xark> Grievre: It would be "great if" every programmer did know all the details, but I agree that is not realistic. There is a spectrum of programmers.
[6:05] <Xark> Grievre: That wouldn't really change much.
[6:06] * Xark has a FPGA dev board he programmed to display VGA currently running next to him (little project)...
[6:06] <Grievre> Xark: well I dunno with FPGAs, functional programming suddenly becomes very appealing
[6:07] <Xark> Grievre: Just a different "language" to code in.
[6:07] * asd (~asd@p54BA2FD0.dip.t-dialin.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[6:07] <Grievre> since a functional program can have arbitrary parts either implemented in LUTs or turned into procedural code for the processor
[6:07] <Xark> Grievre: I disagree. You have to be up on the details to get good results from FPGAs.
[6:07] <Grievre> Xark: elaborate?
[6:08] <Xark> Grievre: Same as with coding. The details "matter" if you care about performance (and I am not talking significant difference).
[6:08] <Grievre> There seems to be this common attitude that optimizing will always be something that humans are better at than computers
[6:08] <Xark> er, I am talking significant differences. :)
[6:08] <GabrialDestruir> Though I have to admit.... the idea of something like drag and drop programming.... letting the compiler do all the work is very... appealing.
[6:08] * ShiftPlusOne wonders if this is going to turn into a discussion on whether we should have VHDL be much more optimized and have more abstractions so that we don't need to know about the logic >.>
[6:09] <Grievre> and yeah there will always be /some/ humans that are better, but already computers are better at optimizing code than humans when it comes to large projects
[6:09] <Xark> Grievre: So far, that is the case. It is not a fair contest because the humans know so much more about the "real problem" than the computer.
[6:09] <GabrialDestruir> xD
[6:09] <Grievre> Xark: right but we're talking about /some/ humans there
[6:09] <Grievre> not /most/ humans

[6:10] <ShiftPlusOne> GabrialDestruir, if that was the case, I think most programs would be pure filth.
[6:10] <piney0> drag and drop programming reminds me of scratch and visual studio IDE
[6:10] <Grievre> you know this made me realize an interesting parallel
[6:11] <GabrialDestruir> Aye, it wouldn't be very good I imagine.
[6:11] <Grievre> for a while I've had the idea in my head that everyone should be taught basic psychology in high school
[6:11] <Xark> Grievre: Well, of course there will always be some level of human the machine is better than, but mostly it is a matter of time and training. I think any "competent" programmer can do better than a machine IF THEY CARE TO (computers are fast but very stupid).
[6:11] <Grievre> because humans are much easier to interact with when you know how they work
[6:11] <Grievre> :D
[6:11] <GabrialDestruir> Though I do wish I could just think things and program, though not at such an abstract level of "ooo program that does x" and voila program.

[6:13] <GabrialDestruir> I mean maybe it's just me.... but typing and using a mouse even touchscreens just feel so... inefficient.

[6:15] <ShiftPlusOne> We could give it the illusion of free will

[6:20] <GabrialDestruir> For example an AI within a cellphone/pda would act as an AI Assistant, would be no different than hiring another person to do it. As long as their free will doesn't conflict with their job it's fine.
[6:20] <Grievre> if a race of beings, in order to better understand their own history, created a computer simulation of a universe designed so that creatures similar to itself would evolve
[6:21] <Grievre> this universe wouldn't be a perfect simulation: it would be granular for example
[6:21] <Grievre> when you try to measure below certain time/size scales, things appear random
[6:21] <Grievre> :x
[6:21] <GabrialDestruir> You should read Revelations by Ravenblack

[6:27] <GabrialDestruir> I can agree with that.
[6:27] <Grievre> ShiftPlusOne: I'm not saying one is better than the other, I'm saying specifically that low-level languages are very often used in inappropriate circumstances

[6:32] <guntha1> oh man i just happened to stumble in here and saw that, absolutely could not resist
[6:32] <Grievre> GabrialDestruir: And specifically you are writing the optimizer for a particular target arch
[6:32] * timmmaaaayyy (~anonymous@cpe-74-73-185-27.nyc.res.rr.com) Quit (Quit: timmmaaaayyy)
[6:32] <Grievre> There's no reason why that code should be written to run on any particular arch (since you always want to be able to cross-compile from anywhere to anywhere)
[6:33] <GabrialDestruir> True.
[6:33] <Grievre> and it stands to reason that you will probably write an optimizer that is less buggy and gets better results if you concentrate only on optimizing the code that your optimizer is optimizing, and not also optimizing the optimizer's code :D
[6:33] <Grievre> one thing at a time after all
[6:34] <Grievre> whenever you have something that involves complex data structures like huge directed graphs and you want to do complex operations on those data structures
[6:34] <Grievre> it helps to have encapsulation and closures and first-order functions and garbage collection
[6:35] <Grievre> so that you don't have to juggle so many concepts
[6:35] <Xark> Grievre: That is all great until your requirements are for a "fast" compiler. :)
[6:35] <ShiftPlusOne> Make sure you otpimize that compiler using your compiler then.
[6:36] <Xark> ShiftPlusOne: Assuming it is written in itself (usually not the case except for C).
[6:36] <Grievre> Xark: then you just run the optimizer through itself :D
[6:36] <ShiftPlusOne> I know, I wasn't being serious, just anticipating Grievre's answer, heh.
[6:36] <GabrialDestruir> Heh....
[6:36] <Xark> Hehe :)
[6:37] <Grievre> The best thing about writing an optimizer is
[6:37] <Grievre> if it doesn't optimize itself as well as you would
[6:37] <Grievre> well then you need to change it!
[6:38] <GabrialDestruir> Write a compiler for optimization.... run it through a compiler that optimizes it, write further optimizations into a new compiler and run it through the compiler you just compiled, rinse and repeat until you've reached a compiler singularity?
[6:38] <Xark> Grievre: Again, that won't be fair. Because I will "know" things about the optimization problem that are not written in the source code (and can't be expressed in that language).
[6:38] <Grievre> Xark: but yeah I mean for example the optimizer in FPGA toolchains isn't as good as it could be. Like it /always/ trims duplicate signals instead of determining whether it would be better to do so or not
[6:38] * Xark notes I being the compiler programmer
[6:39] <Grievre> Xark: However I'm pretty sure that deciding which duplicate signals, if any, to trim, is an np-complete problem
[6:39] <Grievre> (it probably reduces to knapsack or something like that)
[6:39] <Xark> Grievre: I hear if you pay big bucks for the synthesis tools, they do much better. :)
[6:39] <Grievre> Xark: I'm using xilinx ISE right now, which IS the "big bucks" toolkit
[6:39] <Grievre> and it doesn't do that great of a job
[6:40] <Xark> Grievre: Hmm, I am using that one for free. I think they have "fancier" ones.
[6:40] <Grievre> also the GUI tools have awful user interfaces and shitty startup times
[6:40] * jthunder (~jthunder@ Quit (Quit: jthunder)
[6:40] <Grievre> that's one thing: programmers who don't have to worry about the implementation details can spend that time instead worrying about how to design a user interface that doesn't suck

[6:43] <Grievre> it totally blew my mind when I found out that there were tools that literally compile C++ to hardware
[6:43] <Xark> Grievre: The other issue is compilers do a _lot_ of work, so they tend to be slow pigs. So, once they get it all working, I hope they translate it to optimized native code. ISE in particular is soooo slow. It reminds me of C compilers in the 90s. :)
[6:45] <Xark> Grievre: Yeah the whole FPGA thing is a bit of a mind blower to me. Very cool though (and still very much like "programming" - but you have to think parallel).

[9:22] <ShiftPlusOne> linode is great so far though, well worth it.

[9:23] <DexterLB> ditto :D
[9:23] <ShiftPlusOne> heh
[9:23] <DexterLB> just sayin' :D
[9:23] <ShiftPlusOne> Though there is always the pi hosting thing where you send them your pi and they hook it up.
[9:24] <DexterLB> and charge you $100 a month for the broadband, yeah
[9:24] <DexterLB> well $100 might be an overstatement
[9:24] <GabrialDestruir> Eh... but then you're limited to the Pi's resources...
[9:24] <GabrialDestruir> and the Pi can't handle something like owncloud...
[9:24] <ShiftPlusOne> nice, didn't know they did that... I guess all that "free" on their page would be a bit misleading then.
[9:25] <ShiftPlusOne> I think owncloud can't handle the pi, not the other way around. owncloud is fairly trivial in its functionality, I don't know why it struggles.

[9:31] <ShiftPlusOne> I suppose it would depend on the country and the ISP.

[10:10] <GabrialDestruir_> I'd just be happy knowing wth windows is getting greedy with it's USB devices -sighs-
[10:10] <ShiftPlusOne> the lack of persistance (by default) and overall slowness makes usb booting kind of meh.

[10:20] <GabrialDestruir_> The performance isn't trash in gneral. But when you run things on wine then they tend to do more poorly.
[10:20] <GabrialDestruir_> That's running natively.
[10:20] <[deXter]> GabrialDestruir_, If you play any of the Platinum games, then the Wine experience is faster
[10:21] <[deXter]> I mean Platinum rated apps on the appdb.

[10:22] <GabrialDestruir_> except for the fact THQ bundle is windows only
[10:23] <GabrialDestruir_> they forget to tell you that part, so it's all wine for those games
[10:23] <ryao> GabrialDestruir_: I have CrossOver.
[10:23] <ShiftPlusOne> GabrialDestruir_, the windows logo at the top of the page isn't a give away?
[10:23] <ShiftPlusOne> and all the messages saying 'steam only'
[10:23] <GabrialDestruir_> It wasn't there when I originally went to the page.
[10:24] <[deXter]> weltall, Most often than not its not wine itself - but rather stupid graphics effects like Compiz (or compositing in general)
[10:24] <ShiftPlusOne> I went there as soon as I got the email and it was.. maybe it wasn't at prominent as it is now, but it was there.
[10:24] <weltall> nope
[10:24] <[deXter]> that slows down gaming on Wine

[10:24] <weltall> i've removed all compositingfrom my computer
[10:24] <weltall> it's wine
[10:24] <[deXter]> weltall, Which version?
[10:24] <[deXter]> and what game?
[10:24] <weltall> oblivion last
[10:25] <[deXter]> wine version?
[10:25] <ShiftPlusOne> and what graphics driver are you running?
[10:25] <weltall> last version
[10:25] <GabrialDestruir_> I didn't see it at all so who knows, either way I use windows so it's not a whole big issue for me.
[10:25] <[deXter]> well, "last version" doesn't mean anything as most distros ship really outdated versions of wine
[10:25] <weltall> from git should be recent enough :P
[10:25] <[deXter]> Ah. Hmm
[10:25] <[deXter]> Which drivers?
[10:25] <ShiftPlusOne> GabrialDestruir_, same here. I could probably live linux-only, but I prefer windows for gaming.
[10:26] <weltall> last nvidia
[10:26] <[deXter]> There you go
[10:26] <weltall> the only working ones :P
[10:26] <[deXter]> exact version please?
[10:26] <weltall> whathever is on ftp listed by date
[10:27] <weltall> same goes for linux kernel
[10:27] <ShiftPlusOne> Wonder if that last bundle will help THQ with their financial situation much

[10:27] <weltall> mine is after that
[10:27] <weltall> and no it doesn't
[10:27] <weltall> it reduces performance on all my games

[10:48] <ShiftPlusOne> ryao, I can't think of any way that it will limit you. You can compile your own kernel, you can run bare-metal code, you can do whatever. You just don't have direct access to the GPU.
[10:48] <ShiftPlusOne> Well you do, but not 'officially'
[10:49] <ryao> CelticTurnip: I plan to use the Raspberry Pi as part of ZFS development in Gentoo.
[10:49] <ryao> ShiftPlusOne: I want ZFS to be the only filesystem on the flash.
[10:49] * notfunk (~notfunk@ip72-221-66-218.ri.ri.cox.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[10:49] <ShiftPlusOne> then you're very much limited
[10:49] <ryao> The concept behind ZFS is that it should be able to manage everything for you.
[10:49] * hotwings (hd@secksy.net) Quit (Quit: quit)
[10:49] <ShiftPlusOne> since the vfat partition is a requirement
[10:49] <ryao> ShiftPlusOne: Is there documentation on that?
[10:50] <ShiftPlusOne> none that I can pull up quickly
[10:50] <ryao> I might be able to hack around it by creating a psudeo partition inside of the ZFS partition.
[10:50] <ryao> ZFS leaves a 3.5M hole for a bootloader in its disk format. The vfat partition could go into that.
[10:51] <ShiftPlusOne> ryao, you might have better luck asking around in #raspberrypi-internals.
[10:51] <ryao> ShiftPlusOne: Thanks.
[10:52] <ryao> CelticTurnip: In theory, ZFS already has ARM support. lundman did most of the heavy lifting. I wrote a patch that helped improve it after seeing the result of his debugging efforts.
[10:52] <GabrialDestruir_> I need to better learn commandline stuff for linux xD
[10:52] <ryao> GabrialDestruir_: First lesson. Call it terminal stuff.

[10:58] <cdan> is it possible to read GPIO2 while it is configured as SDA ?
[10:59] <ryao> CelticTurnip: It certainly would. A FreeBSD developer is working on Raspberry Pi support. I talked to him about ZFS and he apparently has not though of it. Implementing support for Gentoo FreeBSD on ARM would require a bit of a commitment in terms of generating stages and keywording packages, but it is doable. This is an incredibly low priority for me though. The first thing that I want to do is get Gentoo Linux running. I will figure out my ...
[10:59] <ryao> ... next step afterward.

[11:01] <CelticTurnip> any work you can do will be appreciated, and if we do see ZFS support appreciated would be the understatement of the year :)
[11:02] <ryao> CelticTurnip: On Linux or FreeBSD?
[11:02] <CelticTurnip> either :)
[11:02] <ryao> CelticTurnip: If you are running Gentoo Linux, try compiling ZFS. It likely would just work.
[11:02] <ryao> Booting off ZFS on the other hand is another story.
[11:02] <CelticTurnip> I use OpenBSD and FreeBSD, all of my FreeBSD boxes currently use ZFS
[11:03] <ryao> It might also just work on FreeBSD as well. Booting is another story there too though.
[11:03] <CelticTurnip> I'm talking about your work in relation to the Pi, I know you've done an amazing job on both Gentoo/Linux and Gentoo/FreeBSD :)
[11:03] <ryao> ZFS on the Raspberry Pi is untested as far as I know.

[12:19] <delinquentme> like if its not in the list of DHCP clients .. then the Pi probably doesnt have an IP assigned to it
[12:19] <LostInInaka> no, it won't magically assign a usable one by itself

[13:35] <Yotson> Bollinger: main advantage imo is that it's all digital and factory calibrated. Ask the sensor to measure temperature, ask the sensor for the data. Only very simple math is used to get to a temperature in deg. C.
[13:36] <Yotson> no calibration/special power supply/... needed. It's a bus system so only 2 wires are needed, just string all sensors onto those 2 wires.
[13:37] <Bollinger> Yotson, sounds too good to be true ;-). The 1 (2) wire interface will work OK over 5m?
[13:37] <Yotson> yup. 5meter will do fine. at the local hackerspace we have a couple off lengths over 40meters.

[14:54] <ShiftPlusOne> (for fstab examples)
[14:54] <Dark_Apostrophe> Thank you :)
[14:55] <delinquentme_> can anyone else on a *nix distro mount their sd card with $ sudo mount /dev/sdb1 /media/raspberrypi
[14:55] <ShiftPlusOne> delinquentme_, yes 'course.

[14:56] <delinquentme_> ShiftPlusOne, can you show me the output of $ ls /dev/raspberrypi
[14:57] <ShiftPlusOne> ok, that might take a while... I thought that was a hypothetical.
[14:57] <ShiftPlusOne> on windows right now, booting my laptop

[14:58] <ShiftPlusOne> delinquentme_, while that's happening and because I am lazy and don't want to scroll up, what's the problem?
[14:59] <delinquentme_> ShiftPlusOne, I've pushed up wheezy ( the OS ) onto a number of different SD cards
[14:59] <delinquentme_> and I"m attempting to validate the image pushed up ... however I cant bc i've had the same issues with mounting the SD card after pushing the image to it with the "dd" unix util
[15:00] <ShiftPlusOne> did you reinsert the card after dding?
[15:00] <ShiftPlusOne> *sync and reinsert
[15:00] <delinquentme_> i sync 'd
[15:00] <delinquentme_> but i didnt remove and re input
[15:01] <delinquentme_> also should I push the OS .img up onto a sd card with or without a partition?
[15:01] <ShiftPlusOne> doesn't matter, when you dd the partition table is overwritten

[15:20] <ShiftPlusOne> delinquentme_, that's fine, that's the root partition the pi will use
[15:20] <Zencrypter> I have seen on the internet that we could underclock the raspberry pi using the config file
[15:21] <Zencrypter> However, I am doubting about the stability of the raspberry pi...
[15:21] <delinquentme_> ShiftPlusOne, I guess I was looking to see the *.img file in there
[15:21] <delinquentme_> but thats cool
[15:22] <Lartza> Someone knock me to the right direction with TTL to TTL connection? I just end up shorting the Pi
[15:22] <ShiftPlusOne> delinquentme_, the .img file is the whole sdcard. the partition table and both partitions... you literally copied the bits from that file onto the sdcard.
[15:23] <ShiftPlusOne> Lartza, what are you trying to hook up to what?
[15:23] <Lartza> ShiftPlusOne, RPi to and android tablet

[15:24] <Lartza> Ordered a USB > TTL already but still
[15:24] <ShiftPlusOne> how did you hook it up?
[15:24] <ShiftPlusOne> and is the tablet using 3.3v?
[15:24] <Lartza> ShiftPlusOne, Yes
[15:24] <Lartza> 3v to 3v ground to ground tx to tx rx to rx iirc
[15:25] <ShiftPlusOne> you just need ground to ground and the other two
[15:25] <ShiftPlusOne> except you need to swap them so that tx goes to rx and vice versa
[15:25] <Lartza> ShiftPlusOne, Neither is rs232 so you sure? I think I actually did it both ways

[16:15] <Cykey> Zencrypter: No. Should I?
[16:15] <Cykey> (Maybe the cable is broken? Let me try another Ethernet cable.)
[16:15] <Zencrypter> Cykey, Normally, it uses DHCP but I've always given a static IP to my raspberry Pi

[16:56] <Disconnect> i wonder if swsusp is possible. it'd be risky (usb changes etc) but.. it would be a great way to move my desktop around without having to shut down all the time.

[17:50] <opieng> anyone used ubuntu on the pi?
[17:50] <Cheery> I'm online and feeling like idle
[17:52] <PhotoJim> opieng: Raspbian will be a lot faster.
[17:53] <opieng> oh ok, sorry I am new to all this, I order my pi and due to arrive this Monday, and not sure which OS to start with
[17:53] <opieng> I am new to Linux too, only used ubuntu before
[17:53] <PhotoJim> opieng: Raspbian is an easy choice. it's Debian-based just like Ubuntu, but it's customized to be as fast as possible on the Pi.
[17:54] <opieng> brill thanks I will start with that :)
[17:54] <Cheery> anything else you wonder?

[18:50] <Grievre> tete_: mplayer?
[18:50] <akk> Linux needs some sort of easy-to-find "here is a list of video players currently supported." Since they seem to come and go and change names so often.
[18:50] <tete_> the problem is not "any videoplayer for linux", the problem is "a player for linux which can work on raspberry", this is a big difference
[18:50] <Dynamic> Quick question might be stupid if i'm running my pi headless over ssh do i need to leave any ram for the GPU?
[18:50] <tete_> Grievre, did you try that on rasp?
[18:51] <akk> Sure, but if you had a list with short descriptions (noting which ones were relatively lightweight) it would be a great starting point.
[18:51] <Grievre> tete_: no?
[18:51] <tete_> akk, yes...
[18:51] <akk> vs. "gosh, I vaguely remember xine from years and years ago, I wonder if it's still around?"

[19:05] <tete_> "not enabled by default", sounds interesting, i just installed vlc and it was really horrible to use it
[19:05] <tete_> so i purged it ...
[19:05] <Hydrar> tete_: Try building it with --enable-openmax or --with-openmax
[19:06] <tete_> what is openmax? i am new to raspberry...
[19:06] <tete_> firmware to access gpu functions?
[19:06] <Hydrar> Some sorta khronos standardized video/audio acceleration API iirc
[19:06] <Hydrar> Used by android mostly

[19:09] <tete_> you can also overclock and wont lose it
[19:09] <Patagonicus> Do you mean overvoltage? Setting the freq is overclocking.
[19:09] <tete_> i guess enabling the turbo is the best option, but i did not test it, i run with 1ghz...
[19:09] <tete_> mine runs with 6v overvoltage

[19:10] <Patagonicus> Also, what would be good tools to test CPU/RAM stability?
[19:11] <ShiftPlusOne> someone suggested gziping /dev/random (urandom?) into /dev/null
[19:11] <tete_> memtest
[19:11] <tete_> oh wait, memtest was for x86 ^^
[19:12] <Hydrar> tete_: Isn't omxplayer only decoding formats that the hardware decoder actually can
[19:12] <tete_> i guess its enough to just create a for loop, use a little c app which allocates memory, and then free's all of that all time
[19:12] <Hydrar> tete_: Well you have to zero the memory before freeing otherwise VM wont allocate it
[19:12] <tete_> but i never did any coding on arm :)
[19:12] <Patagonicus> Well, gziping doesn't really tell me if the calculations are correct. And allocating/freeing memory doesn't really touch most of the RAM in a current Linux.
[19:12] <tete_> not yet
[19:13] <tete_> Patagonicus, i never did kernel programming, but iirc there are 2 kind of childs, one which uses the memory of the parent, one which does not
[19:13] <tete_> so if you use the later one you can simply fill up all memory
[19:14] <Patagonicus> tete_: Yes, there are both, but you don't need any childs to fill the memory. You just have to write to the allocated memory, as otherwise the kernel will just reserve some space and do nothing with it.
[19:14] <Hydrar> Seed the libc random number generator with a known setting, fill the whole memory with it, restart it and seed it with same number again and make sure it outputs the same sequence?
[19:14] <Patagonicus> And there is memtester, which is supposed to run on ARM

[19:16] <echelon> what's the distro got to do with what language you use

[19:18] <echelon> 14.0
[19:18] <tete_> but i am thinking about turning back to slackware... on rasp :)

[19:19] <tete_> thats a poor way to battle against other distris ;) its the same firefox does now
[19:19] <echelon> in terms of upgrading, or usability?
[19:19] <echelon> it didn't exactly jump
[19:19] <echelon> in regard to the numbering?
[19:19] <echelon> or the timing of their releases
[19:20] <tete_> numbering
[19:20] <tete_> they did, from 4 to 7... ok its not that high but that was just because other distris had higher numbering lol
[19:20] <echelon> i don't think they care much for what number they're at, they just spend a lot of time testing the stuff in -current for over a year
[19:20] <tete_> that was the time of suse 7
[19:21] <tete_> no thats ok, thats not what i mean, they really jumped from 4.0 to 7.0 without any reason (at least for me) - so my explaination is they wanted to fight against other distris
[19:21] <echelon> depends on how much they've piled on

[19:37] <mgottschlag> "<tete_> i mean... if there is some very important stuff done on the gpu, setting the gpu mem to 0 would more or less brick the rasp" - well, you cannot brick it because you always can flash a different SD card image, and actually the firmware probably does not even allow it

[19:37] <tete_> video now works with sound too, but ... now i have the problem as in the beginning, its a very bad quality (over hdmi) - any idea how i can "tune" that? when i watch the video on my workstation the sound is 1a
[19:38] <ShiftPlusOne> mgottschlag, wouldn't they have something in the firmware preventing that from happening in the first place. Pretty sure it would take whatever it requires without really worrying about config.txt. Haven't tried though.
[19:38] <mgottschlag> ShiftPlusOne: probably

[19:39] <mgottschlag> that limit does not apply when you break into the firmware directly and circumvent their thermal control code

[19:54] <Disconnect> frikinz: does it show a warning? if you open the info on the part it should tell you why it can't read it
[19:54] <frikinz> Disconnect: hi. what do you use for encrypting?

[19:55] <Disconnect> on sd it sometimes takes more than 60 seconds to mount (esp right after boot, OC at 900 or so) so it times out. with 1ghz I haven't had that happen yet
[19:55] <frikinz> Disconnect: Couldn't find valid filesystem superblock.
[19:55] <Disconnect> what does fsck show? I was getting destroyed filesystems yesterday messing with directvnc - immediate hardlock and superblock destruction, had to throw the card into a laptop and fsck it 3 times or so to get the issues ironed out.
[19:55] <frikinz> I could resize but I think its a bit dangerous without seeing the underlying fs :)
[19:55] <frikinz> fsck is ok
[19:56] <frikinz> 0.4% non contigious
[19:56] <Disconnect> yah don't resize. you can resize the partition and not the filesystem, then run resize2fs manually (with it mounted)
[19:56] <Disconnect> but for that you are better off avoiding gparted, because its gonna try to do everything and may destroy the fs. (or may not be willing to do it at all)
[19:57] <frikinz> yes, I know I have to do it in 2 steps but how much can I resize the partition if I can't see the free space inside? :) I mean, I can mount, run df but..
[19:57] <Disconnect> oh and i'm assuming you mean resize larger. for smaller you should just back up and restore, even if it was happy..
[19:57] <frikinz> shrink unfortunatly
[19:57] <Disconnect> if you are trying to shrink i wouldn't do it even if it was happy. much safer to just back up and restore to the new size
[19:58] <frikinz> I have 1GB space on the usb. the debian in the 2nd partition is now 300MB small so I could have a 350MB img

[19:59] <frikinz> I think gparted simply can't use disk image
[19:59] <Patagonicus> I didn't really have an problems with resizing ext4. Make sure its not mounted, resize2fs -M /dev/foo, then shrink the partition (but make sure its larger than the fs), then resize2fs /dev/foo
[19:59] * user82 (~user82@unaffiliated/user82) has joined #raspberrypi
[19:59] <Disconnect> yah it can work, but if it doesn't it tends to be dramatic :)
[19:59] <Patagonicus> Oh, gparted. Hmm, try setting up a loop device: losetup /dev/loop0 foo.img
[19:59] <frikinz> Yeah I could shrink "blindly"
[20:00] <Disconnect> -M is minimum-size iirc, and it'll report the new size.
[20:00] <Patagonicus> resize2fs tells you the size, I think its just in 4k blocks, so there is some math involved
[20:00] <Disconnect> or just go with -P
[20:00] <Disconnect> (print minimum size)
[20:00] <user82> hi. i have one question about diriving GPIO with c code. is it possible that the change in the memory can be written without a real chance of the hardware gpio pin. what i mean is: i tested wiritng millions of changes and it worked within the fraction of a second, does it really change the pin that fast?
[20:00] <user82> referring to here: http://elinux.org/RPi_Low-level_peripherals#GPIO_Driving_Example_.28C.29
[20:01] <Disconnect> user82: Haven't tried it on the pi, but when I was messing with msp430s it changed as fast as you could drive it, but to get a 'clean' transition it took time to settle
[20:02] <Disconnect> (so instead of 0,5,0,5V you might get 1,3,1,3,1,3..)
[20:02] <user82> allright thanks Disconnect ..that may be true
[20:02] <user82> i am afraid that my oscilliscope is hopelessly lost with that speed
[20:02] <Disconnect> i was at an embedded design/research company, so we had some epic gear. sucky job tho :/
[20:04] <user82> as far as i can see the code is just messing around in /dev/mem. maybe it does only chance the /dev/mem but the actual pin is far slower
[20:05] <Disconnect> start at the highest speed you trust the scope and see if its clean.. if not, slow it down.. if yes, maybe thats fast enough.
[20:05] <Disconnect> i'm sure there is a datasheet somewhere though
[20:06] <user82> hmh yeah..i could start at the highest speed of the scope to see if that is still clean

[20:23] <Disconnect> not really. gparted has come a long way in the past few years but sometimes its still simpler to just do it by hand
[20:23] <Disconnect> if it doesn't show an error in the info on the partition there isn't much to be done
[20:24] <Disconnect> stupid question, running as root right?

[21:45] <nNa> Hello! How could I rename the pi user? Is this wise or should I simply create a new user?
[21:45] <GabrialDestruir_> Yes but there's a lot of deprecated crap or stuff that's just splurged onto the wiki
[21:45] <akk> The username is set in /etc/passwd
[21:45] <ladoga> :??????????:
[21:45] <nNa> User pi probably has some special environment variables set, right? So I guess simply creating a new user wouldn't be enough.
[21:46] <Disconnect> just edit /etc/passwd and /etc/shadow
[21:46] <ladoga> sorry:)
[21:46] <Disconnect> but you can create a new user and assign the necessary groups
[21:46] <Disconnect> that is what i did
[21:46] <nNa> Oh, OK. I thought there is some additional stuff.
[21:46] <Disconnect> its just debian

[22:50] <Zencrypter> Up to point #3 :)
[22:51] <Zencrypter> akk, No, I didn't try...

[22:52] <akk> When you test, be ready to hit Cancel or Off or whatever, in case it tries to spit out 100 pages of postscript.
[22:52] <Zencrypter> It printed "Use correct driver"
[22:52] <akk> Huh.
[22:52] <akk> That's pretty annoying.
[22:52] <adb> arm
[22:54] <AndrevS> Anyways, I have compiled qemu for the raspberry. Through qemu-i386 it should be able to run i386 binaries, provided you also provide a i386 rootfs. I still haven't tested it yet, but if nothing else works it might be a way
[22:55] <Zencrypter> AndrevS, Do you think I should try to put the rastertosamsung files from the i386 directory ?

[22:59] <AndrevS> it is rather complex, indeed. and the proposed "/usr/bin/qemu-i386 -cpu 486 /usr/lib/cups/filter/rastertosamsungspl $@" will probably not work since it above it says it's a dynamically linked, so you need the i386 rootfs
[23:00] <AndrevS> If you're only wanting to use the raspberry as printer server, and print from i386/x86_64 machines, the sharing will work

[23:33] <akk> I'd driven my little toy cars with arduinos, and was thinking that the rpi with a little DAC circuit could slip in in place of the arduino.
[23:34] <mervaka> use switching
[23:34] <mervaka> else you have to waste power equivalent to the voltage not used * the current the motor is pulling
[23:35] <mervaka> ie, (Vsupply-Vmotor)*Imotor
[23:35] <mervaka> that power has to be burned off
[23:35] <mervaka> as heat
[23:36] <opieng> are any of the original pi developers here?
[23:36] <mervaka> switching doesn't incur those losses
[23:36] <mervaka> it's either at Vsupply to 0

[23:40] * invisiblek (~invisible@unaffiliated/invisiblek) has joined #raspberrypi
[23:41] <akk> Are there drivers on the pi that'll take care of that? Or do I have to fork a process (or similar) to handle all the on/off?
[23:41] <mervaka> drivers aren't what you're after
[23:41] <mervaka> you need to take a look at the PWM peripheral
[23:41] <akk> peripheral?
[23:41] <mervaka> yeah
[23:42] <mervaka> built into the raspi is a little PWM peripheral
[23:42] <mervaka> basically a counter and a comparator
[23:43] <mervaka> you give the counter a number to count up to, and a speed at which to count, and then give the comparator a number to compare the counter to
[23:43] * nNa (bce6afea@gateway/web/freenode/ip. has joined #raspberrypi
[23:43] <mervaka> so the counter counts up
[23:43] <mervaka> and the comparator output starts at 0
[23:43] <mervaka> when the counter passes the comparator's number, the comparator's output flips to a 1
[23:44] <nNa> How can I update only specific packages? apt-get dist-upgrade wants to update libmikmod2, which also pulls a bunch of other packages (including pulseaudio, which I don't need/want).
[23:44] <akk> But if I need to do that on two channels, I'd have to do it on the microphone jack with an amp like you're doing?
[23:44] <mervaka> and you change the comparator's number to change the duty cycle
[23:44] <mervaka> yeah
[23:45] <mervaka> i've had to put the PWM peripherals into MS mode, meaning it works with a mark and a space time, rather than whatever the other mode does for audio output

[23:47] <nNa> Haven't really used Debians package manager that much...
[23:47] <frikinz> nNa: aptitude as a TUI is very powerfull. apt-get can be a bit tricky sometimes, I'd suggest moving to aptitude
[23:47] <akk> nNa: I'm pretty sure apt-get install packagename will update the package if it's already installed but not the latest.
[23:47] <akk> I went back to apt-get instead of aptitude because I couldn't get aptitude to ignore suggests and recommends, but that's easy with apt-get.
[23:48] <frikinz> akk: there should be an option for this. I just got hit by this, it pulled again a package I don't want.
[23:48] <frikinz> aptitude install foo should install the latest version iirc
[23:48] <akk> mervaka: Is there a page documenting this PWM peripheral stuff? Sounds like definitely something I'd like to experiment with.
[23:48] <mervaka> akk: look at WiringPi
[23:49] * Kripton is now known as kripton
[23:49] <mervaka> I'm yet to fully understand it myself
[23:49] <nNa> OK, I'll try the apt-get way as soon as the updates complete.
[23:49] <akk> Which brings up a related question: do the WiringPi python bindings handle PWM now? They didn't last time I looked.
[23:49] * Haaninjo (~anders@ Quit (Quit: Ex-Chat)
[23:50] <frikinz> nNa: if you neither want suggest nor recommend, add these two lines to /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/99-mine:
[23:51] <frikinz> APT::Install-Recommends "0";
[23:51] <frikinz> APT::Install-Suggests "0";
[23:51] <akk> You can also use "false" instead of "0".
[23:51] <akk> (at least with apt-get ... maybe that's why it never worked for aptitude?)
[23:52] * NullMoogleCable (NullMoogle@cpe-66-66-112-9.rochester.res.rr.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[23:52] <akk> I put it in /etc/apt/apt.conf but putting it in apt.conf.d/ works too.
[23:53] <mervaka> akk: grow some balls and write in C :P
[23:53] * arcanescu (925706ef@gateway/web/freenode/ip. Quit (Ping timeout: 245 seconds)
[23:54] <frikinz> akk: yes, it's just less messy
[23:54] <akk> mervaka: I like C just fine, but it sure is nice to be able to write simple things in Python.
[23:54] <frikinz> split conf vs one huge file.. ymmv
[23:55] <akk> Those two lines are the only thing I ever have in /etc/apt/apt.conf, so it's not exactly a huge file. :)
[23:55] <tete_> is someone running the rasp as server? i found out that the cpu has a "java" flag set. does that mean it has special "power" for java applications like a tomcat?
[23:55] <akk> mervaka: Also, I like being able to share my code with friends who aren't as comfortable in C.
