[0:10] <CelticTurnip> rymate1234: you might want to try hdparm instead of doing low level stuff with dd
[0:10] <CelticTurnip> as for the SanDisks I have the extreme pro, it's no faster on the Pi than my normal class 10 SanDsks
[0:10] <CelticTurnip> SanDisks even

[0:15] <bin_bash> everytime i see hdparm i think that
[0:15] <TAFB> is my thing to test /dev/hda?
[0:17] <pksato> ATX PSU to power RPi https://plus.google.com/photos/115147337053910457307/albums/5817916341644372401/5820086921696083826

[0:18] * pksato afk
[0:19] <TAFB> ahhhh /dev/mmcblk0p1
[0:21] <rymate1234> is this a good SD card?

[0:21] <TAFB> yep, they work good.
[0:21] <bin_bash> rymate1234, yeah it looks like a nice one

[0:25] <UnaClocker> oooh, I think my game install might almost be done.

[0:27] * int3nz0r (~int3nz0r@ has joined #raspberrypi
[0:27] <TAFB> Una, do you know how I can make wpa_gui load after lxde starts?

[0:28] * AeroNotix (~xeno@aatg122.neoplus.adsl.tpnet.pl) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:28] <mdim> I just connected my Raspberry Pi, and it is running the Arch Linux ARM. What should I be seeing? All I see is bunch of errors?
[0:29] <ShiftPlusOne> mdim: well, that's not something you should be seeing.
[0:29] * Haaninjo (~anders@ Quit (Quit: Ex-Chat)
[0:29] <ShiftPlusOne> mdim: once it's booted, you should see the login prompt\
[0:29] <ryao> mrhobbz: The only thing that I dislike about it is that it uses power adapter like what you would find on a router.
[0:29] * Alfihar (~Yuuka@siberios.co.uk) Quit (Quit: Bye Bye)
[0:29] <mdim> something like this: mmcblk0: error -110 sending status command, retrying.
[0:29] <ShiftPlusOne> mdim: bad sdcard, pretty sure.
[0:29] <CelticTurnip> rymate1234: that's the card I currently have in my 512er... works really well
[0:29] * lars_t_h (~lars_t_h@002129074231.mbb.telenor.dk) Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[0:31] <mdim> well, I did pull out the card from my laptop while something was being written to it. Is permanent damage possible?
[0:31] <ShiftPlusOne> mdim: it wouldn't cause permanent damage, you'd be able to either fsck it or rewrite the disk image.
[0:31] <mdim> ok, I'll delete all the partitions first, and then retry
[0:32] <ShiftPlusOne> I think it's just an unsupported card though
[0:32] <rymate1234> I'll probably buy that SD card next week
[0:32] <mdim> kingston sdhc 8 gb, class 10
[0:32] * sraue (~stephan@xbmc/staff/sraue) Quit (Ping timeout: 265 seconds)
[0:33] <TAFB> hate kingstone, so many fakes out there :(
[0:33] <pksato> /quit
[0:33] * pksato (~PEBKAC@unaffiliated/pksato) Quit (Quit: Problem Exists Between Keyboard And Chair)
[0:34] <TAFB> can anyone help me put wpa_gui in startup so lxde loads it when it starts? I tried to copy and paste the icon into the startup folder, but I guess that's not how it works :(
[0:34] * Linovia (~textual@put92-4-82-231-49-9.fbx.proxad.net) Quit (Quit: Computer has gone to sleep.)
[0:34] <rymate1234> TAFB, why do you want it to start on startup?
[0:35] <TAFB> because my wireless won't connect unless it opens.
[0:35] <rymate1234> o.o
[0:35] <rymate1234> that's odd
[0:35] <TAFB> is it not supposed to be like that?
[0:35] * AeroNotix (~xeno@aatg122.neoplus.adsl.tpnet.pl) Quit (Quit: Uploading hax.....)
[0:36] <TAFB> maybe the wireless is connecting BEFORE it opens. lemme reboot and check :)
[0:36] <ryao> mrhobbz: They appear to have their own channel in #odroid.
[0:36] <ShiftPlusOne> mdim: 8 GB/Go SDHC Class 10 - SD10V/8 GB or 8 GB SDHC Class 10 (SD10G2/8 GB, SD10V/8 GB, ultimateX 100X, ultimateX 120X) ?
[0:36] <ShiftPlusOne> the first is reported not to work and the second is reported to work
[0:37] <rymate1234> TAFB, afaik wpa_gui is just a configuration tool for wpa_supplicant
[0:37] <TAFB> those kingston cards are slooooooow too :( the 100x one at least.
[0:37] <TAFB> never tried it in my Pi so can't speak to it's compatibility.

[0:40] <rymate1234> lmao
[0:41] <TAFB> gosh darn it works peachy :)
[0:41] <rymate1234> I love my router
[0:41] <TAFB> ok. Pi is going down and getting moved where it'll only have one cable going into it, MicroUSB! woot!
[0:41] <rymate1234> It might be a crappy ISP issued one
[0:42] <rymate1234> But it automatically gives devices static IP's and makes port forwarding very easy

[1:24] <TAFB> yikes! that's a lot of ish! :)
[1:25] <TAFB> where'd you get that Pi case?
[1:25] <rikkib> http://www.zlham.geek.nz/images/news/stm32-rpi.jpg
[1:26] <rikkib> I made the aluminium case
[1:26] <TAFB> nice! did you put any heatsinks on the components? must cook in there with little ventalation.
[1:27] <rikkib> I have one of those cases mounted in a larger plastic box heading for the proof of concept project I am workiing on
[1:27] <rikkib> Gate opener... 24v dc and cat5e 150m to a gate
[1:28] <TAFB> ohhhhhh, nice LCD display!!! what's the res on it?
[1:28] <rikkib> cam for vid/aud and relays/switches and gpio control from a web interface
[1:28] <TAFB> dirty
[1:28] <rikkib> 320x240 lots of color :)

[1:31] <rikkib> Heating is not a problem
[1:32] <rikkib> less than foot warmer heat from the RPi in the case. The case actually help as a heat sink giveing more area to dispate the heat
[1:33] * Cykey (~textual@modemcable119.94-162-184.mc.videotron.ca) Quit (Quit: Computer has gone to sleep.)
[1:33] <TAFB> nice. after my two defective Pi's were sent back, the last one that worked came with little heatsinks in the box: http://ecuflashking.com/2012-12-06-RaspberryPi/2012-12-06-RaspberryPi.jpg
[1:35] <rikkib> http://www.zlham.geek.nz:8081/
[1:36] <rikkib> Live web cam pointing at the box I have a rpi in ready to onsite for tests
[1:37] <rikkib> cam running on a RPi with motion streams to motion running on my web server
[1:37] <rikkib> my hand
[1:37] <TAFB> nice!
[1:37] <rikkib> :)
[1:37] <TAFB> looks great. Is it using java script to refresh the image?
[1:37] <TAFB> I got some code so it won't refesh the image until the next one is fully loaded, makes it a slide show instead of drawing it like that.
[1:38] <rikkib> No just ordinaryt streaming as supported by browsers other than ie
[1:38] <rikkib> html5
[1:38] <TAFB> ahhh. okies.
[1:39] <rikkib> like chrome works as well as icedove/firefow
[1:39] <rikkib> fox
[1:39] <TAFB> here's a flash webcam I set up (not on a Pi): http://www.ourston.com/resources/webcams/halifax.html

[1:39] * CelticTurnip (~celt@unaffiliated/celticturnip) Quit (Ping timeout: 264 seconds)
[1:39] <TAFB> haven't got around to making it work on html5 yet
[1:41] <rikkib> streaming closed
[1:42] <rikkib> works with multiple rpi with web cams no problem
[1:42] <rikkib> Going to see how an aggregation server using a rpi with the system I am working on.
[1:44] <TAFB> rikiib: do you think vlcplayer could run on the Pi?
[1:44] * Pickley (~Pickley@ has joined #raspberrypi
[1:45] * GentileBen (GentileBen@cpc20-lutn10-2-0-cust20.9-3.cable.virginmedia.com) Quit ()
[1:46] <rikkib> It runs but
[1:47] <rikkib> I have not got vlc to see my cam... Permission issues and if it don't run out of the bow then it aint much chance of getting run around here
[1:47] <rikkib> box
[1:48] * MichaelC is now known as MichaelC|Sleep
[1:48] <TAFB> damn :( I'm hoping to use VLCplayer on Pi to read 720p h264 stream and transcode it to flash compatible h264 stream. Not sure if it can use GPU to do that, cpu wouldn't be fast enough I think
[1:48] <rikkib> What I do know with vlc is that I can see motion streams and also listen to audio streamed from the rpi cam
[1:49] <rikkib> 1 fps vid and 16k audio is real good for long distance streaming over the net
[1:49] <_mru_> I don't think vlc has support for rpi hw codecs
[1:49] <_mru_> and the cpu is definitely too slow
[1:49] * scummos^ (~sven@p57B191E6.dip.t-dialin.net) Quit (Ping timeout: 265 seconds)
[1:50] <rikkib> I am running vlc on other platforms as the end point of the vid/aud streams I send from rpi
[1:50] <TAFB> mru: thanks for the info.
[1:50] * InControl (~InControl@firewall.adslnation.com) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[1:51] <TAFB> because my customers use traffic cams, they all want 720p flawless 30fps stream :( they stream it through a 3rd party hosting company so it only has to stream to "one user" then they split it from there.
[1:51] <rikkib> motion is ideally suited to what I want to do... add audio and I have a gate intercom. add gpio control and I have a gate that opens and closes.
[1:51] <rikkib> and a buttom to call the end point
[1:52] <rikkib> all very simple.
[1:52] <TAFB> nice. Are you just doing it for one project, or are you going to develop a system/kit?
[1:53] * ku (~any@polywiki/steward/kudu) Quit (Ping timeout: 276 seconds)

[1:54] <rikkib> I have another guy that can provide support to get thigs on the move.
[1:55] <TAFB> nice! good luck on your project, I hope it works out well for you.
[1:55] <rikkib> My skills have been working to this day for many years
[1:55] * Armand (~martin@cpc17-haye16-2-0-cust427.haye.cable.virginmedia.com) Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[1:56] <rikkib> When a cheap linuix system that can be hooked to the other stuff I do comes along
[1:56] <TAFB> did you see the Exynos4 system? If you ever needed more power than the Pi: http://www.hardkernel.com/renewal_2011/products/prdt_info.php?g_code=G135235611947&tab_idx=1
[1:56] <rikkib> As you see I have stm32v boards and also mc9s08
[1:56] * emilepetrone (~emilepetr@c-24-22-29-165.hsd1.or.comcast.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:56] * emilepetrone (~emilepetr@c-24-22-29-165.hsd1.or.comcast.net) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[1:57] <rikkib> and lots of other stuff... bluetooth, dsp...
[1:57] <TAFB> I'm thinking that Exynos4 board might better run my VLC for camera streams.
[1:58] <rikkib> I watched your streams for a while... Impression... a smooth 1fps is better than freeze frame :)
[1:59] <TAFB> you're on the other side of the pond, the under ocean link isn't strong :) their target market is in north america, streams fine over here :)
[1:59] <rikkib> true
[1:59] <rikkib> and our cable has been playing up...
[1:59] <rikkib> we are currently reliant on one link

[2:02] <TAFB> love Kim. he's awesome. I saw his tweets about the new Mega service. I sent his team an e-mail asking if I can "host" a camera in their stream. Hopefully I hear back if they are working on any streaming type setup with their new cloud business.
[2:02] <TAFB> yikes, is that the best you can get?
[2:03] <rikkib> I live in a small country town and have a fixed ip that I pay $60/month for 50GB

[2:05] <rikkib> sucks
[2:05] <shufflebot> Soooo the pi I ordered I'm pretty sure is defective
[2:05] <TAFB> it's the same here. If I drive 2 hours I can get to a place with NO dsl, no high speed, nothing. 56k modem dialup only! But if you go FARTHER out, the government has paid to have a company put in 4g wireless, nice speeds but $$$ for bandwidth.
[2:05] <rikkib> as does the slow uptake of ip6v
[2:05] <shufflebot> whenever I run yes and pipe it to itself a few times the system will run for about a minute then crash
[2:05] <TAFB> shuffle: is it going to sleep on you?
[2:05] <shufflebot> yeah pretty much
[2:06] <shufflebot> doesn't reboot
[2:06] <shufflebot> just powers to "red" state
[2:06] <TAFB> yep. did you see the big thread about that on Pi forums?
[2:06] <shufflebot> Noooo
[2:06] <TAFB> only solution is re-flow it in your oven, or send it back.

[2:09] <TAFB> It's a solder problem with the cpu. When it gets warm it crashes. If you put a fan blowing directly on it, it'll probably run forever! lol.
[2:09] <TAFB> A few guys have reflowed them in their ovens and they work perfect now. My third replacement I got works flawless, so I didn't try any baking.

[2:48] <Rexz> ok well I have the mixer running at 44100, -16 1 1024
[2:48] <rikkib> the uvc driver in the kernel gets video completion errors which make motion crash.
[2:48] <pksato> And, script my be running before alsa or pulseaudio start proper.
[2:49] <rikkib> The bug is not on the kernel issue list so will not get fixed until someone gets a clue
[2:49] <rikkib> in the mean time I am running kernel from 7th ,month which doe work headless
[2:50] <SpeedEvil> I question if it's not just the normal USB flakiness
[2:50] <SpeedEvil> I mean, if keyboards are unstable, why should camera work well
[2:51] <rikkib> Given the many issues that I have seen since getting my first RPi I think much of what we see is clueless nobieness
[2:52] <rikkib> It is a usb issue introdiced when the otg driver were put in the kernel
[2:53] <rikkib> I have tried to trace it to a certain update of github but could not quite put my finger on it... kernel debugging was not on my to do list.
[2:53] <nahmaste> anyone use this toolchain for rpi cross-compiling in sb2? https://github.com/raspberrypi/tools/tree/master/arm-bcm2708/arm-bcm2708hardfp-linux-gnueabi/bin

[2:59] <TAFB> good evening
[2:59] <rikkib> I am not expert on usb but they introduced new drivers into the kernel arounnd the 8th month and that is when the errors started to occur
[2:59] <uriah> what's the max current that can be drawn from the 5V0 pins on the header pinout?
[3:00] <rikkib> I am running a 3.1.9 kernel, I think, to get a stable system
[3:00] <TAFB> on the GPIO pins? If you pull more than 100ma the poly fuse F3 will cause a voltage drop and the CPU will crash.
[3:00] <rikkib> I also keep up to date sd cards
[3:01] <TAFB> You can jumper wire F3 and you can pull 1amp from GPIO pins if your power supply supports it
[3:01] <pksato> uriah: it is direct connected do F3 polyfuse, 750mA, RPi use arround 500mA.
[3:01] <uriah> ok, thanks
[3:01] <brady2600> this sucks so bad
[3:02] <brady2600> ive spent like two weeks prepairing my raspberry pi , and now the arduino ide won't run, which is critical to my project
[3:02] <pksato> and, have the usb devices.
[3:02] <TAFB> brady: they say you always do it better the second time
[3:03] <brady2600> i have started completely over at least twelve times
[3:03] <TAFB> oh, time for lucky number 13 I guess.
[3:03] <rikkib> what's the max current that can be drawn from the 5V0 pins on the header pinout? From memory 50mA
[3:03] <bin_bash> oh woww
[3:03] <TAFB> do you save images of your card at all the different steps??
[3:03] <bin_bash> so apparently i was doing the case all wrong lol
[3:03] <brady2600> both this room and the arduino room have forwarded me to the java room, and the java room says no tech support
[3:04] <bin_bash> i found an instructional video
[3:04] <TAFB> lol
[3:04] <brady2600> no i dont have a backup
[3:04] <TAFB> damn, when you do #13 make an image of the card at every step, once you find out what's breaking it you can go one step back :)
[3:04] <rikkib> 50mA total from all 5v pins on all connectors
[3:04] <uriah> pksato, TAFB: i guess i can just power stuff straight from my 5v regulator circuit, in parallel with the pi, if i need more current.
[3:05] <rikkib> P1 & P2 mainly but applicable to the cam port
[3:05] <TAFB> uriah, if you need more power from the USB, you can do this: http://i.stack.imgur.com/eU2tt.jpg

[3:05] <pksato> GPIO pins is for signaling, not power source.
[3:06] <uriah> TAFB: thanks
[3:06] <bin_bash> what do you use the gpio pins for anyway
[3:06] <uriah> TAFB: btw, that's a terribly compressed jpeg :D
[3:06] <TAFB> I jumpered F3 and I'm getting a solid 5V everywhere on my pi, and solder bridged the two USB ports and am back feeding power to the Pi. I can pull 6 amps from the spare USB port before it starts to melt.

[3:06] <TAFB> sorry, copy paste fail
[3:07] <rikkib> I have tested RPi powered from the gpio. I run a outboard polyfuse of similar rating as the on board one.
[3:07] <uriah> TAFB: how hot does that wifi dongle get?
[3:07] <uriah> (i'm looking for a new one, since mine uses up too much current - i think)
[3:07] <TAFB> let me go check, it's been transfering data constantly for like an hour now to test reliability. one sec.
[3:08] <TAFB> I had to solder bridge all over my Pi to make that one work, drew WAY too much current.
[3:08] <uriah> hmm, damn
[3:08] <uriah> mine makes the pi reboot when i plug it in, but afterwards it works fine it seems
[3:09] <TAFB> you can solder in bigger cap, makes hot plug not reboot Pi.
[3:09] <TAFB> I felt the temp, it feels about the same as the large middle chip on the Pi, so warm.
[3:09] <uriah> ah. it's the hotplugging that reboots it? why doesn't it do that with keyboards?
[3:09] <uriah> not enough current drawn?
[3:10] <TAFB> yep
[3:10] <TAFB> it's big initial draw spike caused by devices. Most mice and all keyboard don't do it.
[3:10] <uriah> cool
[3:10] <TAFB> if you have a high draw device it gets a big voltage drop when you connect it.
[3:10] <uriah> and some usb memory sticks
[3:10] <ParkerR_> Heh my external hard drive has a spike
[3:10] <rikkib> TAFB, Are you technically qualified or just a hobbyist?
[3:10] <ParkerR_> And crashes the Pi
[3:10] <TAFB> if you replace the little cap (47uf) with a 250-300uf no more reboot.
[3:10] <uriah> TAFB: powered usb hub can also be a solution, correct?
[3:10] <ParkerR_> Boot back up with it in fine

[3:11] <TAFB> I'm 0% qualified.

[3:11] <mrhobbz> i'm qualified in.... google-fu
[3:11] <TAFB> yep, powered hub works flawless.
[3:11] <rikkib> googe-fu is good
[3:11] <TAFB> I didn't want extra boxes, extra power adapters, didn't want to back power, etc. so I just bridged and WiFi works sweet. Hot plug no problem with bridged ;)
[3:12] <mrhobbz> you go with ceramic tafb?
[3:12] <TAFB> i didn't use bigger cap on my Pi. With the wire bridge to the USB hot plug works fine.
[3:13] <mrhobbz> ah
[3:13] <TAFB> I also jumped F3 so Pi has more voltage, 4.86 before, 5.01 after :)
[3:14] <mrhobbz> nice

[3:20] * luigy (~luigy@ has joined #raspberrypi
[3:20] <ParkerR_> TAFB, What does that voltage reading show?
[3:20] <TAFB> the voltage the CPU of the Pi is getting, after the F3 poly fuse.
[3:21] <ParkerR_> Ahh
[3:21] <ParkerR_> Neat
[3:21] <ParkerR_> I take it only on the older boards?
[3:21] * luigy (~luigy@ Quit (Client Quit)
[3:21] <TAFB> if you measure the outside edge of poly fuse F3 and black box D17 it will show you input voltage (from your adapter).
[3:21] <TAFB> nope, that's on brand new ones.
[3:22] <TAFB> they only did away with the USB poly fuse limiters on the new boards, it still has a main current limiter.
[3:22] <ParkerR_> Oh I thought I head read that they removed a polyfuse. Or was that just the power input fuse?
[3:22] <ParkerR_> Ahh
[3:22] <mrhobbz> 4.7 on the one i've got xbmc sitting, hopefully my new power adapters get here soon

[3:24] * luigy (~luigy@ Quit (Client Quit)
[3:24] <TAFB> Parker: It used to have three poly fuses, two up by the usb ports to limit USB current to 100ma, and the one main one (approx 750ma). They did away with the USB ones and left the main one (F3)... dumb ;)
[3:25] <mrhobbz> nope, no network drops so far
[3:26] <TAFB> nice, you must be right on the edge :)
[3:26] <TAFB> did you measure F3 to D17?
[3:26] <TAFB> it's on the bottom of the board ;)
[3:26] <TAFB> right where micro USB plugs in.

[3:34] <mrhobbz> old multimeter isn't reading anything anymore
[3:35] <mrhobbz> been using an analog meter for years, looks like it bit the dust
[3:35] <TAFB> lol :) if you have good input voltage, but poor TP2-3 voltage, solder jumper wire from one side of F3 to the other = super solid power :)
[3:36] <mrhobbz> gotcha, i'll check that out after i pick up a new meter
[3:37] <TAFB> good plan :)
[3:38] <mrhobbz> doh, yeah needle isn't moving on anything i feed it
[3:38] <mrhobbz> any suggestions on a good digital?

[3:52] <mrhobbz> nice UnaClocker, I haven't seen that one yet.. neat
[3:52] <nerxgas> who would ever need more than 500k hackers
[3:52] <UnaClocker> I'm guessing that they've made/sold about 500k Pi at this point. I think I heard that number recently.
[3:52] <axion> TAFB: nethogs and bwm-ng come to mind

[3:55] <Lobs> UnaClocker: some of us have many many many more than 1 PI, so you cant use a number of sold units as to number of "hackers"
[3:55] <CelticTurnip> yeah install base is like 20 people I think :)
[3:55] <UnaClocker> Lobs: And if I knew the exact number, I wouldn't.. I know some schools probably got groups of 100 or more.. Roughly 500k, eventually many more.
[3:55] <CelticTurnip> :P
[3:56] <plugwash> uriah, with care yes
[3:56] <CelticTurnip> if they managed to ship 500K good on them, that initial wait of months was insane :)
[3:56] <ParkerR_> Heh finally got my config.txt fully set up http://pastebin.com/EL9ZfDxN
[3:56] <uriah> plugwash: by 'with care', what do you mean?
[3:56] <UnaClocker> "Sell out a little to sell a lot"???
[3:56] <plugwash> you must not feed 5V into the Pis input
[3:57] <uriah> oh.
[3:57] <plugwash> so for 5V devices some voltage division will be needed
[3:57] <uriah> plugwash: the data i/o for ttl is 5V?
[3:57] <nahmaste> rikkib: did you say that you built a toolchain with crosstool for cross compiling?
[3:57] <plugwash> "TTL" is a bit of a loosely defined term...
[3:57] * kcj (~casey@unaffiliated/kcj) Quit (Quit: kcj)
[3:57] <rikkib> Yes
[3:58] <UnaClocker> The GPIO pins want 3.3v, 5v will smoke them.
[3:58] <rikkib> crosstool does it for you
[3:58] <uriah> plugwash: i was thinking about using something like this: https://www.sparkfun.com/products/11571
[3:58] <nahmaste> rikkib: was it a linaro tc using the experimental features? im trying to decide how to configure mine
[3:58] <rikkib> downloads all the stuff and compiles the libs and then the compiler
[3:59] <rikkib> yes from memory
[3:59] <rikkib> the rpi is following that route
[3:59] <rikkib> the kernel sources
[4:01] <rikkib> what you use fir libs etc is up to you... leading, bleeding edge or stable
[4:02] <rikkib> just modify the script
[4:02] <plugwash> real TTL devices run of 5V and IIRC accept anywhere from about 2V to their supply voltage. The output high voltage of a real TTL gate running off 5V will be a bit less than 5V but I still wouldn't risk feeing it into the Pi.
[4:02] <TAFB> I downloaded and extracted bwm-ng, what do I type in to install it?
[4:02] * MichaelC is now known as MichaelC|Sleep
[4:02] <mrhobbz> neighbor had a dmm, 4.88 D17 - F3
[4:02] <axion> depends on your gnu/loinux distribution
[4:02] <plugwash> But there are also many TTL compatible CMOS devices that are loosly described as "TTL", you really need to read the specs of such devices to find the actual output voltage
[4:02] <ParkerR_> Heh made my config that much fancier http://pastebin.com/iFnvVYxC
[4:03] <TAFB> supply's a little weak hobbz.
[4:03] <CelticTurnip> ParkerR_: that's the spirit ;)
[4:03] <plugwash> and add appropriate protection/conversion for the Pi if needed

[4:04] * markbook (~markllama@0127ahost2.starwoodbroadband.com) Quit (Ping timeout: 264 seconds)
[4:04] <uriah> plugwash: ok, thanks.
[4:05] <TAFB> you mean sudo apt-get install nethogs?
[4:05] <axion> that would do it, if nethogs exists in their repo
[4:05] <axion> which is better than bwm-ng btw
[4:05] <uriah> plugwash: power supply is 3.3V to 5.5V

[4:07] <plugwash> if in doubt using a 74LVC series device running off 3.3V to buffer the signal will protect the Pi and should work with pretty much any device that has a "ttl compatible" interface

[4:13] <_mru_> send it /dev/zero
[4:13] <JohnRambozo> I was very excited to recieve my pi yesterday, finally.
[4:13] <TAFB> i do have ftp server on my network
[4:13] <TAFB> congrats John :)
[4:13] <JohnRambozo> only to find they shipped me an incompatible flash card.
[4:13] <ParkerR_> TAFB, It access the Pi over ssh. Has nothing to do with samba
[4:13] <ParkerR_> *accesses
[4:13] <_mru_> ssh-based transports will probably max out the poor little cpu before hitting network limits

[4:16] <axion> downloads 500MB 999 times :)
[4:16] <_mru_> if you want to stress the network, you should probably access something local
[4:16] <JohnRambozo> i ordered a 2 pack of verified working sd cards. just waiting for those to show up.
[4:16] <TAFB> ok, going to try: ftp> put "|dd if=/dev/zero bs=1M count=100" /dev/null
[4:16] <TAFB> to my local networked FTP server
[4:16] <JohnRambozo> any suggestions for what do to with my new toy?
[4:16] <bin_bash> JohnRambozo, have you tried putting it in your butthole
[4:16] <_mru_> and you should probably run some data both ways too
[4:17] <TAFB> without an SD card? not much Jogn.
[4:17] <_mru_> bin_bash: people have been banned from here for less
[4:17] <bin_bash> oh... sorry.
[4:17] <_mru_> wonder if ReggieUK saw that...
[4:17] <JohnRambozo> bin_bash, I have not. do you recommend a smooth case or just the raw board.

[4:17] <bin_bash> LOL JohnRambozo ^5 for having a sense of humor. Maybe a nice wooden case.
[4:18] <bin_bash> JohnRambozo, you could use it as a web or email server
[4:18] <bin_bash> or media server, with xmbc
[4:18] <Lobs> bin_bash: i hear silicone rubber works well.
[4:18] <JohnRambozo> yeah, originally i inteded to use it as a silent, low-power BBS.
[4:18] <axion> well sanded of course
[4:18] <bin_bash> LOL Lobs
[4:18] <bin_bash> BBS' are legit.
[4:18] <bin_bash> what kind of bbs?

[4:28] <axion> isnt that the point of the pi?
[4:28] <TAFB> the Pi deserves to be noticed. Look, I'm SMALL but can do BIG things!
[4:29] <JohnRambozo> i agree with tafb. ;)

[4:31] <axion> maybe a gamepad (that works)?
[4:33] <TAFB> John: Says 32 people ordered prints of that RasPi case, so it must print OK :)
[4:34] <JohnRambozo> Well, it says ordered prints if you check the price at a printing site.
[4:34] <JohnRambozo> So its hard to say if any really printed.
[4:34] <TAFB> ahhhhhhh i see
[4:34] <JohnRambozo> But thanks for pointing that out. I didn't notice.
[4:35] <JohnRambozo> Well, nice meeting you all. I need to sleep. I'll be idling here the rest of my life.

[5:52] <nahmaste> anyone know of a front end that will start on boot, allowing certain programs to be started from a controller (similar to an HTPC)?
[5:53] <nahmaste> something outside of X if possible, or at least that will drop out of X when the target program is started (for performance reasons)
[5:53] <ParkerR_> nahmaste, There is an emulation thing that looks for roms in certain folder and can launch emualtors from there. Can use a controller to navigate the program

[6:00] <tonsofpcs> hey, how can I figure out if I'm on an "A" or "B" card from a console?
[6:02] <echelon> check the size of memory?
[6:03] <echelon> /proc/meminfo
[6:03] <echelon> are A models even available yet?
[6:04] <tonsofpcs> well, i'm a bit confused. How much RAM should I have on the B?
[6:04] <Ben64> 256 or 512
[6:06] <tonsofpcs> is there a way I can tell 256 or 512 by looking at the board?
[6:07] <bin_bash> wait how do you have voice if you don't even know that
[6:07] <bin_bash> on the ram chip it'll say 2g or 4g. if it says 2g, it's 256. if it says 4g, it's 512
[6:07] <tonsofpcs> because I just ordered two 512s, I had one already that I think was 256, raspbian's raspi-config gives me the 256M options....

[6:12] <axion> nahmaste: it should
[6:12] <nahmaste> doesnt XMBC allow you to add emulators? that runs on rpi, doesnt it?
[6:12] <ParkerR_> Yes
[6:13] <axion> xbmc has a plugin that allows you to spawn external programs or emulators, yes
[6:13] <ParkerR_> But the overhead of running XBMC and an emualtor would be too mcuh for it
[6:13] <ParkerR_> *emulator
[6:13] <ParkerR_> *much
[6:13] <nahmaste> so the emulator runs on top of XBMC?
[6:13] <ParkerR_> It may exit and relaunch
[6:13] <ParkerR_> Not entirely sure
[6:14] * Lupinedk is now known as lupinedk
[6:14] <tonsofpcs> I haven't tried on the pi, but my last use of XBMC the 'external' plugins would just hide it, not end it. Eats RAM that way...

[6:26] <bin_bash> i wonder. can you power a raspberry pi from a cigarette lighter?

[6:26] <tonsofpcs> sure, why not.

[6:27] <mdim> so, when I press play in xbmc for some movie, the movie starts, but I see only the console
[6:27] <SpeedEvil> use a USB 'charger'
[6:27] <mdim> any clue why?
[6:27] <SpeedEvil> simples
[6:27] <tonsofpcs> SophieRxx: or buy one of those $5 voltage-regulators-with-usb-socket that they sell at the little mall kiosks selling cellphone accessories
[6:28] <tonsofpcs> mdim: because you're trying to use a really bloated video player on a really underpowered computer?
[6:28] <tonsofpcs> or perhaps you're trying to watch "The Matrix"?
[6:29] <tonsofpcs> :)
[6:30] <mdim> wrong guess
[6:30] <tonsofpcs> ParkerR_: when you're ready to try stereo, let me know. It's fun math... really..... (I wonder how fast the pi can handle FFTs....)
[6:30] <mdim> i'm trying to watch big buck bunny
[6:30] * tonsofpcs should download that one of these days

[7:25] <brady2600> ok i came back to try to give it another go , i mean, im just totally depressed over this. I've spent the week on this and i can't believe im looking at having to reformat and start all over.
[7:25] <ParkerR_> And I split it with audacity, deleted the second track, made sure it was at 44.1khz, and exported at 16bit wav
[7:25] <brady2600> i just like, can't bring myself to format the sd card
[7:26] <ParkerR_> brady2600, What happened?
[7:26] <brady2600> when i try to run the arduino ide , i get some sort of error
[7:27] * axion grabs his crystal ball
[7:27] <ParkerR_> Hmm
[7:27] <ParkerR_> Maybe just something with the arm build of the ide
[7:27] <ParkerR_> Does everything else work?
[7:27] <brady2600> well i can run it if you give me a little and i can tell you exactly what is happening
[7:27] <ParkerR_> Ok
[7:28] <brady2600> yes, i configured the thing, set up a web server, did no-ip , set up a ftp server, i even already used the arduino ide.. i just don't know but at some point it got messed up
[7:28] * kripton is now known as Kripton
[7:28] <brady2600> one second ill go put the sd card in and boot it up
[7:29] <TAFB> brady, got a link for settinig up no-ip? I need that (going to use pancake and php for the web) :)

[7:31] <TAFB> sweet, thanks so much
[7:31] <brady2600> i had to do something else i believe to get it to autostart
[7:31] <brady2600> but im sure you can find an autostart guide online
[7:32] <brady2600> ok going to ssh into the pi
[7:33] * mrcan (~mrcan@unaffiliated/mrcan) Quit (Ping timeout: 240 seconds)
[7:33] <brady2600> first I do : ssh raspberrypi@ -L 5901:localhost:5901
[7:34] <ParkerR_> axion, Well I tried http://withg.org/parkerlreed/garth.wav
[7:34] <brady2600> then i run vncserver to get the vnc going
[7:34] <axion> ParkerR_: ok?
[7:34] <brady2600> then in a new terminal window, i do : xtightvncviewer
[7:34] <ParkerR_> axion, Slow playback on the Pi
[7:35] <ParkerR_> I didn't know if you had messed with the FM transmitter thing at all
[7:35] <axion> indeed the code was a quick hack and parts of it need to be a kernel driver
[7:35] <brady2600> ok so that gets me into my pi
[7:35] <axion> start hacking the kernel :)
[7:35] <ParkerR_> Heh
[7:35] <brady2600> then in the terminal, i run arduino
[7:36] <mdim> how to change system time zone?
[7:36] <ParkerR_> mdim, Depends on distro
[7:36] <brady2600> the first thing that comes up is xlib: extension "RANDR" missing on display ":1"
[7:36] <axion> usually by creating a symlink to /etc/localtime
[7:37] <brady2600> then there are a number of java exceptions that come up after that
[7:37] <ParkerR_> brady2600, Run it from a terminal inside vnc
[7:37] <brady2600> yes, i am
[7:37] <ParkerR_> Hmm
[7:37] <brady2600> i have tried to install the xlib thing, but that didnt seem to fix it
[7:37] <ParkerR_> Well ok. First things first. This is most likely not an SD card issue, so don't worry about reformatting
[7:38] <brady2600> no i was going to reformat cause ive been trying to fix this and im feeling hopeless
[7:38] <axion> do you have libxrandr, randrproto and xorg-xrandr?
[7:38] <axion> or your distros equivalent packages
[7:38] <ParkerR_> brady2600, Try gtk2-engines-pixbuf
[7:38] <brady2600> i am not sure if i have those
[7:39] <axion> install the full of xorg
[7:39] <ParkerR_> http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?t=16598&p=167551
[7:39] <brady2600> its weird, because ive successfully run before
[7:39] <brady2600> trying gtk2-engines-pixbuf
[7:40] <ParkerR_> Might have to restart everything
[7:40] <ParkerR_> Or at least the VNC session
[7:40] <brady2600> command not found
[7:40] <ParkerR_> Nooo
[7:40] <brady2600> sudo?
[7:40] <ParkerR_> apt-cache search gtk2-engines-pixbuf
[7:40] <ParkerR_> And see if that brings anything up
[7:41] <axion> iirc pixbuf was used in gtk1
[7:41] <brady2600> gtk2-engines-pixbuf - pixbuf-based theme for GTK+ 2.x
[7:41] <ParkerR_> Its there
[7:41] <ParkerR_> sudo apt-get install gtk2-engines-pixbuf
[7:42] <ParkerR_> I forgot I had my SSH conenction up
[7:42] <brady2600> ok just ran that, its doing stuff
[7:43] <ParkerR_> Also on an unrelated note. I wish there was a arm port of vnc4server
[7:43] <TAFB> I use x11vnc, works so sweet.
[7:43] <ParkerR_> Runs a separate X session and serves it up via VNC
[7:43] <TAFB> couldn't get tightvnc to work.
[7:43] <ParkerR_> TAFB, I don't have any existing x server to piggyback on
[7:44] <ParkerR_> I don't use X at all actually
[7:44] <TAFB> i see
[7:44] <brady2600> i had a pain in the ass getting tightvnc working, for some reason i couldn't get one of my ports open, so i then just did the tightvnc over ssh and it works, although im still considering investigating x11
[7:44] <ParkerR_> vnc4server is nice because it runs X just for VNC
[7:44] <axion> just edit sshd_config, uncomment 1 line, now you can run X apps over ssh, or your full x desktop
[7:44] <ParkerR_> axion, Seriously
[7:44] <ParkerR_> Wow
[7:44] <axion> no need for vnc...if its too slow, change the compression/cipher (pi is quite slow)
[7:44] <ParkerR_> What line?
[7:45] <axion> AllowX11Forwarding or such
[7:45] <axion> let me check
[7:45] <ParkerR_> Neat. I personally don't have much use for it
[7:45] <ParkerR_> Got most everything working in framebuffer
[7:45] <brady2600> yeah, at one point, i had managed to get an x application to run over ssh, but i never managed to get it to show the whole X session
[7:45] <axion> X11Forwarding yes
[7:45] <axion> restart ssh
[7:45] <brady2600> ParkerR, it has finished
[7:46] <brady2600> should i reboot?
[7:46] <axion> launch any x with ssh -X /remote/path/to/app
[7:46] <axion> err
[7:46] <brady2600> yes but , how would one display the whole desktop with X?
[7:47] <brady2600> just ran arduino , still same error
[7:47] <axion> ssh -X user@host startxfce4, or whatever your desktop environment
[7:47] <brady2600> should i restart?
[7:47] <ParkerR_> I guess

[10:09] <axion> i remember the xeyes application from x11r6 having inversed colors with -X and needed -Y. i dont know of anything else
[10:09] <axion> yes, -Y is trusted forwarding and disables security controls
[10:13] <axion> you should use -Y if you trust the server

[11:02] <Ed_> ok so to the main question i have and app that uses SDL and openGL which uses GLX and this dont work on raspberrypi, so im thinking on porting to SDL 2.0 and rewrite openGL to openGLES functions, compile and relink all to avoid de GLX (Xserver) will this do the trick?
[11:03] <teh_orph> yep
[11:03] <teh_orph> avoid GLX as currently this only channels GL not GLES commands to the X server
[11:04] <teh_orph> it can support GLES but currently it doesn't (and it's quite a task too)
[11:05] <lunra> Isn't there a really annoying Pi specific init function that has to be called?
[11:05] <teh_orph> bcm_host_init or something?
[11:05] <lunra> Or does the X server take care of that? (I haven't seen anyone using gles in X but I guess I'm behind on the news, sorry)
[11:05] <teh_orph> the X server does not do that for you
[11:05] <Ed_> yep i saw on triangles.c (GLES)

[13:05] <markit> anyone knows if/where/when gertboard is available?
[13:05] <InControl> it isn't
[13:05] <neilr> The kits were withdrawn
[13:05] <InControl> Farnell have stopped selling the kits
[13:05] <markit> oh!
[13:05] <neilr> I think that Farnell are going to introduce ready built ones
[13:05] <markit> how is that? alterantive?
[13:05] <neilr> No idea on timescale though
[13:05] <InControl> and the assembled version isn't available yet
[13:06] <neilr> I think that Farnell worked out that it's cheaper to sell them ready built
[13:06] <markit> ok, no Christmast gift for my children then... :(
[13:06] <neilr> They're tough to build
[13:06] <neilr> lots of surface mount stuff to solder
[13:06] <InControl> No doubt by February if you are lucky knowing Farnell
[13:06] <SpeedEvil> I wish a pi kit was available
[13:06] <markit> neilr: yep, I'm good in soldering but was a bit scared about that surface mount stuff
[13:07] <neilr> Tandy bought a load of boards from Farnell and offered kits for a while, but I'm not sure if they still do.
[13:07] <InControl> Gert should have done a deal with Tandy to carry on doing the kits
[13:07] <neilr> Could be worth a check though - it's where I got mine from.
[13:08] <InControl> Gert has an exclusive deal with Farnell
[13:09] <InControl> So no more boards will be available from Tandy as Farnell have dropped the board
[13:09] <neilr> Can't help feeling that he's been a bit crapped on by Farnell. As I understand it, they didn't even tell him they were going to drop the kits from their lineup.
[13:10] <InControl> Farnell have been hopless from the start

[14:49] <markit> v0lZy: kturtle is logo
[14:50] <markit> but wondering if children find it funny and interesting... these days they have full hd, 3d "real life like" games
[14:50] <markit> and they think that programming is telling the comuter "make me a brand new game that is awesome"
[14:50] <markit> give 20 instructions to a turtle to draw a square and a triangle seems not interesting for them, I fear
[14:51] <markit> so I'm asking in this channel about "real life experience" on this
[14:52] <Weaselweb> markit: I was at the same situation with my nephew. To begin I've chosen to start with kturtle to get a feeling about pgramming at all. nevertheless we played minecraft instead of doing programming last time he was there ;-)
[14:52] <Jck_true> markit: I did a things with a 15 year old kid... He seemd to like the hardware alot more than the programming... (interfacing with hardware that is)

[14:55] <markit> Jck_true: yep, I will spend 30 minutes telling them about the purpouse of a computer (that is... being programmed!), and about Free software
[14:55] <markit> then I want to do some programming for the last 15-20 minutes
[14:55] <markit> then recap what we have done
[14:56] <Jck_true> Good luck :)
[14:56] <markit> mmm use an editor can be cumbesome... kturtle has a basic one integrated
[14:56] <markit> I've had a look also a pyturtle (or something like that) through idle
[14:56] <Weaselweb> markit: just stick to a hello world in a programming language of your choice
[14:57] <Weaselweb> but I would recommend a script language
[14:57] <Jck_true> 1 hour is really really short time with kids that age...
[14:57] <markit> Jck_true: well, better than nothing, and if the experiment works fine, maybe I can ask the school to have some hours in the afternoon for the ones really interested
[14:57] * SgrA (~sgra@unaffiliated/sgra) has joined #raspberrypi
[14:58] <markit> I do want them to learn to program and just use programs, and also badly
[14:58] <markit> (teachers are ignorant themselves, so...)
[14:58] <Weaselweb> maybe you should do some math the also do during school manually. so they can get the link
[14:59] <InControl> You don't really need a gertboard to do Io stuff
[14:59] <InControl> markit: have you seen the articles in the MagPi magazine ?
[14:59] <Jck_true> I wrote the the driver for a 7segment display... Then I gave the kid a short intro on binary and how to light the 8 leds in each digit - Then I let him create the font -
[14:59] * xranby (~xranby@labb.zafena.se) has joined #raspberrypi
[14:59] <InControl> you can do a fair amount with just a breadboard
[15:00] <Jck_true> Which was basicly just him doing binary to hex conversion on paper for 1 hour :)
[15:00] <markit> InControl: ehm, I download it, have a brief look, tell myself "I will read carefully later" and then forgot / no time. What issue?
[15:00] <InControl> and a Pi cobbler or some male-female jumpers

[15:00] <Jck_true> markit: All of them really - They provide loads of projects :)
[15:00] <satellit> another idea : use sugar on RPi most applications are python and show source: http://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/Testing/Reports/ARM_RPi#Test_report_raspberrypi-fedora-remix-17-test-004.img

[15:01] <InControl> yes all of them have electronics projects in
[15:01] <markit> InControl: I've no time for electronics, I fear
[15:02] <InControl> 2,3 & 4 are the breadboard based ones, some of the others require soldering
[15:02] <markit> maybe in a future afternoon course, where I may push children for buying their own Rpi
[15:02] <satellit> look at http://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/Sugar_Creation_Kit software for the One Laptop per Child (OLPC)
[15:02] <markit> satellit: ah I see thanks
[15:02] <satellit> have fun
[15:02] <markit> ok, thanks a lot you all for the ideas and tips
[15:03] <satellit> works on RPi 256 "B"
[15:03] <InControl> Digital electronics is all pretty easy and I think for a lot of people get a sense of achievement from something as simple as making an LED flash

[16:22] <SpeedEvil> mgottschlag: the arm core is used in most phones.
[16:22] <SpeedEvil> not the specific chip.
[16:22] <SpeedEvil> it's a set top box chip

[16:28] <SpeedEvil> the fact similar chips are in phones doesn't mean this one has low power mode
[16:28] <SpeedEvil> it's possible.

[16:29] <SpeedEvil> and it's likely it will require hardware not on the pi.

[16:41] <SpeedEvil> it's a reason it's not an issue, in some cases.
[16:41] <SpeedEvil> in others, it's hopeless

[18:43] <nid0> without you saying what errors you actually get, that's anyone's guess. you need DNS setting up to point the relevant domain's MX record to your mailserver in order to receive though, and most recipient mailservers will perform sender verification to make sure your sending domain actually points somewhere
[18:44] <nid0> and as it currently does not, most mailservers will reject mail from @rusher81572.dyndns.org addresses

[18:57] <nid0> Torikun: it depends. If you're planning on using it as a production mailserver you'll need to get a PTR record setup to reverse your IP, because a lot of mailservers require a forward and reverse lookup to match

[19:37] <TAFB> nahmaste: I had problems with my TP-LINK TL-WN725N constantly dropping out all the time. I bridged F3 to boost the all around voltage in the Pi (TP2-TP3 went from 4.86v to 5.01v), and ran jumper wires from F2 and D17 directly to the USB port power pins (and bridged the USB port power pins too).
[19:37] <TAFB> Now my wifi is rock solid :)
[19:37] <TAFB> Got the ideas from this page: http://raspberrypi.stackexchange.com/questions/340/how-much-power-can-be-provided-through-usb
[19:38] <TAFB> sorry, jumper wires from F3 and D17 (not F2, lol).

[19:40] <f1ps> Hi all
[19:40] <TAFB> hey fps
[19:41] <f1ps> I need some help with getting started.
[19:41] <TAFB> we're here to help
[19:41] <TAFB> imaging the SD card with a Windows PC?
[19:41] <f1ps> I got my raspberry pi working today, but I wanted to use something like GRUB
[19:41] <f1ps> so I thought the next best thing would be to use BerryBoot
[19:41] <nahmaste> TAFB: nice. if i had the EE skills id definitely do more like that
[19:41] <TAFB> ahh. never tried BerryBoot. maybe someone here can help.
[19:42] <f1ps> But after doing everything that I had to do (FAT32, copy the files over, etc) - put the SD card in the Pi and nothing happened.
[19:42] <TAFB> if the Pi can't find the boot sector/OS on the SD card, it does nothing.
[19:42] <TAFB> http://elinux.org/R-Pi_Troubleshooting
[19:42] <f1ps> HDMI/DVI adapter, produces video normally, no video here. Only a red light on the front (improper kernel maybe)?
[19:42] <f1ps> Had a look and there's just the red light
[19:43] <TAFB> no green act light flashing at all?
[19:43] <f1ps> Nope
[19:43] <f1ps> Solid red only.
[19:43] <TAFB> that's your Pi saying "I can't see/read/understand what's on the SD card"

[19:45] <TAFB> yep! Notice how the USB power pins are "bridged" as well. Works SWEET when back powering (and great even when powering from the Micro USB jack too).
[19:45] <TAFB> I also bridged F3 (not shown in that pic), to boost the Pi voltage/current.
[19:46] <buZz> yeah i want to backpower soon
[19:46] <buZz> so i will mod it a bit
[19:46] <buZz> TAFB: do you have a page describing all the hacks you did?
[19:46] <buZz> or would you like to write one up?
[19:47] <TAFB> if you back power, you only need to bridge the USB power pins, no need for jumper wires or for bridging F3, back power = full power to the Pi, and if you bridge the USB power pins, full power to the other USB jack too :)
[19:47] <buZz> yeah but i have the polyfuses on my raspi, so backpowering will be limited to 150mA?
[19:48] <TAFB> I was going to do a sweet writeup, cause I'm a noob and think it'd help other linux noobs get started, but I dunno. They are pretty risky mods, bypassing fuses, etc.
[19:48] <axion> i demand an article to go with that link
[19:48] <TAFB> you have polyfuses by your USB ports?
[19:48] <buZz> yes please do!
[19:48] <axion> doitnao!
[19:48] <buZz> TAFB: yeah on both sides
[19:48] <nid0> well, the best way to backpower into the pi is just to make sure you have a rev2 board
[19:48] <nid0> then you're all set
[19:48] <buZz> TAFB: as in the design drawing on that one link you gave
[19:48] <buZz> i have a rev1
[19:48] <buZz> actually two rev1
[19:49] <nid0> then yes, you need to bypass them
[19:49] <TAFB> buzz, on ver2 they just ditched the poly fuses, so to get the same effect just solder a wire from one side to the other = instant Rev2!
[19:49] <buZz> :)
[19:49] <buZz> :D
[19:49] <buZz> ok ok
[19:49] <buZz> guess i'll just wing it
[19:49] <TAFB> then back powering will work peachy, full power to the Pi, plus with bridged USB power pins, full power to the other port.
[19:49] <buZz> was hoping to borrow from your experience TAFB ;)
[19:49] * [deXter] (d3Xt3r@ has joined #raspberrypi
[19:49] <buZz> i want to hook up the raspi through a lapdock
[19:49] <TAFB> you bridge the USB power pins by soldering a wire (or just use solder), between these two pins: http://i.stack.imgur.com/LDQuV.jpg
[19:49] <TAFB> and the top two pins the same way too
[19:50] <buZz> so the power coming over usb also carries data for keyboard and mouse
[19:50] <TAFB> the middle four pins are data, don't let solder touch those.
[19:50] <buZz> backpowering makes a lot of sense then
[19:50] <buZz> yeah i figured that
[19:50] <tanuva> are the usb ports on a 512mb model "secured" by the polyfuse? or could I plug in power hungry usb devices as long as the psu makes it?
[19:50] <TAFB> buzz. If you want to back power with a USB hub, most of them you have to hack the internals, to provide power BACK through the hub's INPUT port.
[19:51] <buZz> TAFB: no, this is a motorola lapdock
[19:51] <mgottschlag> tanuva: the fuse is directly connected to the microusb connector

[19:51] * dreamon_ (~dreamon@unaffiliated/dreamon) has joined #raspberrypi
[19:51] <TAFB> tanuva: there is a main poly fuse at the MicroUSB jack that limits total current to a little over 700ma. The Pi needs like 500 to 600, so if you plug anything major in the USB port it'll like just reboot your Pi or won't power the USB device properly.
[19:51] <buZz> TAFB: it has a microusb MALE plug which provides power + data to the device being connected
[19:52] <dantheman> so I just got my gert-board from element14
[19:52] <TAFB> buzz: Nice! that's be a sweet setup, power plus data on backpower. handy

[19:53] <DarkTherapy> evening all
[19:54] <f1ps> anyone here have experience with berryboot?
[19:54] <TAFB> tanuva: if you solder a wire from one side of F3 to the other side (of F3) it'll elimante the poly fuse and provide full power to your Pi and USB ports. If you bridge the power pins on the USB port you can pull almost 400ma from a single port no problem. If you need more than 400ma (like my stupid wifi adapter) you can run a wire bridge to provide almost unlimited power to your USB jacks,
[19:54] <TAFB> like http://i.stack.imgur.com/eU2tt.jpg
[19:55] <buZz> unlimited power :)
[19:55] * Orion_ (~Orion_@ Quit (Quit: ~ Trillian Astra - www.trillian.im ~)
[19:55] <TAFB> 3 amps if not back powering, I call that pretty unlimited as far as USB power goes ;)
[19:56] <tanuva> TAFB: yes, I was hoping for such a hack. but bridging the fuse completely doesn't feel right, I'd rather only bridge it to the usb ports
[19:56] <TAFB> no probs Tan, you can bridge just to usb and not bridge F3, will work fine.
[19:56] <tanuva> now I just need my pi... :)
[19:57] <TAFB> I bridged F3 because I was getting a huge voltage loss through it. Use a volt meter and measure TP2 to TP3 and see what your voltage is, then measure F3 to D17 (sides closes to board edge). The difference between the voltages is your loss through the poly fuse!

[20:00] <TAFB> nice. So the resistors just increase the current, instead of direct shorting it? nice!

[20:02] <GabrialDestruir> I wonder how much skill one would need to remove the polyfuses blocking power from the USB ports

[20:02] <TAFB> to limit current to the USB port. Serves a couple of purposes.
[20:03] <GabrialDestruir> They prevent a current from flowing back into the Pi too
[20:03] <viric> ah ok.
[20:03] <TAFB> 1) stops the Pi from rebooting when you plug in a high drain device
[20:03] <dantheman> ok anyone here actually work with the Rpi people?
[20:03] <viric> I've a v2 board
[20:03] <GabrialDestruir> Unofficial chat
[20:03] <dantheman> cause I thought the gert board was going to be sold fully populated and sold as a kit with the SMT items already in place
[20:04] <TAFB> v2 board is nice for provide more USB power, but if you hot plug a higher drain device it'll reboot the Pi :(
[20:04] <axion> what if C6 broke off? will your mod still work?
[20:04] <viric> does your OK/ACT led flash all the time?

[20:06] <ohhmaar> So after a few days of turning on my raspi and configuring/setup it was never on consistently because i kept unplugging. Yesterday I had it on the entire day and either my micro usb cable is messed up or the raspi messed it up for me

[20:22] <JohnRambozo> okay.
[20:22] <JohnRambozo> well there ya go.
[20:22] <TAFB> or is it fat32? lol
[20:23] <f1ps> Raspbian works on FAT32
[20:23] <JohnRambozo> I dont think it matters for berryboot. But don't quote me on that.
[20:23] <JohnRambozo> raspbian reformats the drive to linux.
[20:23] <JohnRambozo> and leaves a small fat partition.
[20:23] <f1ps> Yes, Raspbian works on the card
[20:23] <TAFB> we're talking the bootberry code though, I think it needs FAT16 to boot.
[20:23] <f1ps> Does it?
[20:23] <f1ps> I tried that
[20:23] <JohnRambozo> you have raspbian on the same card already?

[20:35] <f1ps> 4GB for the berryboot, 10.83GB unalloc., that's it

[20:41] <TAFB> yeah, for dual boot should be SWEET
[20:41] <JohnRambozo> thats why i tried it first.. but i ran into my card problems... now i'm waiting on new cards to arrive.
[20:41] <JohnRambozo> impatiently. ;)
[20:42] <f1ps> do any of the previous versions work?
[20:42] <pksato> to use berryboot, just dump the image to sd, like others OS images.
[20:42] <f1ps> without formatting it to anything?
[20:42] <TAFB> you actually just format the card and unzip some files to it ;)
[20:42] <JohnRambozo> you just have to copy it.. you don't have to use an image writer.

[21:41] <bparker> TAFB: it just froze up again while doing apt-get upgrade
[21:41] <f1ps> ik, I tried an extensive search
[21:41] <Armand> TAFB, I've not really been looking at smaller batteries.. my minimum is 7Ah.
[21:41] <bparker> so it's not the voltage being too high.

[21:42] <JohnRambozo> but you knew that alreayd,.
[21:42] <f1ps> it did when I first tried it, I'll see if it works again once the image has re-written itself
[21:42] <pksato> f1ps: make a copy of config.txt
[21:42] <f1ps> which one?
[21:42] <bparker> what's weird though, is that the CPU usage applet at the bottom-right keeps updating (it stays almost at 100%), but nothing else on the screen moves, the keyboard doesn't do anything, and the power to the mouse has been shut off
[21:42] <bparker> (and probably the keyboard too)
[21:43] <f1ps> image is written, time to re-test raspbian
[21:43] <pksato> copy of raspbian config.txt. and replace all file with berryboot files on fat partition.

[21:52] <pksato> I read some issue about high network traffic and rpi hangs.
[21:52] <f1ps> your OC may be sending it nuts
[21:53] <f1ps> my freeze happened when I was transferring files
[21:53] <f1ps> same symptoms - all peripherals froze but CPU kept working
[21:54] <f1ps> at 700MHz, a few seconds at high intensity should be one to two deg. max.
[21:54] <TAFB> bparker, you're running the default CPU clock, not overclocked?
[21:54] <f1ps> at 900MHz, make it 2 or 3
[21:54] <pksato> ethernet chip also is a USB hub.
[21:54] <f1ps> he's running at 900MHz

[22:04] <tanuva> interesting. farnell claims that the pi will be despatched in one week on the search result page, but on the peripherals page, it says 19 days.
[22:04] <tanuva> they don't really want customers to trust them, do they?
[22:05] <f1ps> cheers man
[22:05] <f1ps> I got so lucky there.
[22:06] <f1ps> downloading the raspbian thingy now

[22:12] <Datalink> this'd be easier if the network wasn't isolated.
[22:12] <f1ps> Headless clients use VNC don't they?
[22:12] <f1ps> or can do
[22:12] <Datalink> depends on the client, VNC or Terminal Services, typicaly, some can use X11

[22:17] <f1ps> thanks
[22:18] <TAFB> Datalink: are you using static or dhcp?
[22:18] <Datalink> TAFB, DHCP, I do not control the remote network and the chance of collision is high because it's a school network
[22:19] <Datalink> my Pi's on wifi using a working dongle
[22:19] <TAFB> then it's not the Pi remembering the IP address, the router has learned your Pi's mac address and will always assign it the same IP
[22:19] <FliesLikeABrick> Datalink: with DHCP the pi... what TAFB said
[22:19] <Datalink> yeah
[22:19] <JohnRambozo> heh
[22:19] <Datalink> depends on how long the DHCP lease is... which I don't have info on
[22:19] <FliesLikeABrick> the DHCP server will assign the same IP address as long as it is not off the network past the end of a lease (but even then most remember it longer if the pool doesn't need to be tuned over)
[22:20] <FliesLikeABrick> Datalink: you can get the lease length from syslog

[22:20] <Datalink> f1ps, that's a gripe to send to Adobe...

[22:20] <Armand> O-o

[22:20] <f1ps> I've heard that there's something called Gnash which is an equivalent?
[22:20] <axion> indeed
[22:21] <Datalink> gripe, a complaint over small annoyances
[22:21] <TAFB> how do you check the temp of the Pi's CPU, etc.
[22:21] <Armand> Datalink, I know what a gripe is. :P
[22:21] <Armand> TAFB, I've got a command for that... if you're on Raspbian.
[22:21] <scummos> f1ps: equivalent except that it does not work in 90% of the cases
[22:21] <f1ps> Does that work?
[22:21] <f1ps> oh, I see
[22:21] <scummos> but it can play youtube videos
[22:21] <TAFB> yep, wheezy for me
[22:21] <axion> TAFB: was that a question?
[22:22] <Datalink> scummos, yeah, pretty much limited to using the youtube script
[22:22] <chithead> load the kernel driver for the temperature sensor, and run "sensors" from lm-seonsors package
[22:22] <FliesLikeABrick> html5?

[23:25] <Datalink> axion, nice
[23:25] <axion> indeed
[23:25] <Datalink> heh, I need to find a way to go from 12 to 19 volts, then I could use it on my laptop too :P
[23:27] <axion> just power it from its usb ports
[23:27] <FliesLikeABrick> this is really weird - I can get my RPis (2 of them) to boot the archlinuxarm .img when I write it to my SD card, but not the June debian image from raspberrypi.org
[23:28] <FliesLikeABrick> any ideas why that might be the case?
[23:29] <axion> not booting is a complicated subject. more information is needed
[23:29] <FliesLikeABrick> power light comes on, no output on HDMI
[23:29] <pksato> old firmware on new hw?
[23:29] <FliesLikeABrick> just got the boards in the mail today
[23:30] <JohnRambozo> why would you wnat to try an old image?
[23:30] <FliesLikeABrick> (so I'm new to RPi in general)
[23:30] <FliesLikeABrick> I was under the impression that was the later/beta image
[23:30] <axion> such as the number of green led blinks when first powered
[23:30] <JohnRambozo> there's an october debian image, I beleive.
[23:30] <FliesLikeABrick> axion: will check
[23:30] <JohnRambozo> rasbian.

[23:36] <axion> satellit_e: try without any usb devices connected
[23:37] <satellit_e> I use a powered 4 port Hub for dell kbd and mouse (usb)
[23:38] <axion> like i said, try without anything connected and see if you still get slow boot
[23:38] <pksato> slow boot? slow sd? or, very fast sd?
[23:38] <satellit_e> not running it atm on Trimslice h250 doing testing
[23:39] <satellit_e> class 10 sdxc
[23:39] <satellit_e> 64 GB
[23:39] <TAFB> My 64gb kept getting corrupted and was slow as piss
[23:39] <axion> it may be excessive interrupts
[23:39] <TAFB> went back to my 32gb super fast monster, worked sweet.
[23:40] <axion> ive had it happen with bad overclocking, or bad usb devices
[23:40] <satellit_e> they vary Sandisk Ultra here 30MB
[23:40] <pksato> rpi use spi or "native" access mode for sd?
