[0:02] <TAFB> fayimora: no draw backs as long as you got a good microUSB cable and power supply = nice and stable.
[0:02] <xrosnight> rats! rasp doesn't recognize my keyboard well. that's the only usb keyboard of me!! what should i do ....
[0:03] <TAFB> xrosnight: buy $6 usb keyboard
[0:03] <fayimora> TAFB: cool.. i can do it via rapi-config right?
[0:03] <Launch_Director> xrosnight: try with synergy
[0:03] <TAFB> fayimora: raspi-config for 1ghz sucks donkey balls

[0:05] <xrosnight> Dr_willis: you got so many ,lol
[0:05] * lupinedk is now known as Lupinedk
[0:05] <Dr_willis> even got some of those old old intel clicky-clacky keyboards
[0:05] <Dr_willis> ;)
[0:05] <xrosnight> Launch_Director: are you selling keyboards?
[0:05] <Dr_willis> with the big huge ps port plugs
[0:06] * markedathome (~markedath@unaffiliated/markedathome) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:06] <CarlFK> I have a webcam that works on my ubuntu box. what's an app to just display the image on the screen? likx xawtv.. only that throws an error about "Missing charsets in String to Fontset conversion"
[0:06] <xrosnight> yeah. are those PS/2 keyboards out of date ?
[0:06] <Launch_Director> xrosnight: nah 104 is a good number to keep
[0:06] <frikinz> CarlFK: cheese
[0:07] <CarlFK> not found

[0:07] <CarlFK> frikinz: is that a package I need to isntall?
[0:08] <frikinz> if you mean on the PI, I have no idea what is ported
[0:08] <CarlFK> frikinz: yeah.. on the pi
[0:09] <deps> (OSX) well, can't seem to find out how to mount the SD card to show me all the partitions. I only get one directory with the kernel and a bunch of other files. The rest of the OS files seems to be on another partition I am unable to reach.

[0:11] <SupaYoshi> How is the Joomla performance on the pi? 512 mb/
[0:11] <deps> gordonDrogon: Don't know. I assume now that It cannot.
[0:11] <gordonDrogon> deps, probably unlikely, but I don't know much about mac/osx..

[0:13] <xrosnight> so . for me . in this case, without keyboard support, can raspberry pi be installed ???anyway
[0:14] <gordonDrogon> xrosnight, yes it can - you need to ssh in via LAN once it's booted.
[0:15] * Tirili (~opera@dslc-082-083-146-133.pools.arcor-ip.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:15] <Tirili> Hi
[0:15] <Hopsy> markedathome: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/14034637/wakeonlan-and-etherwake-doesnt-work
[0:16] <xrosnight> gordonDrogon: the thing is i can't type anything to make it run initially via ssh port
[0:16] <gordonDrogon> how can you wak on lan when the Pi doesn't sleep...
[0:16] <SupaYoshi> ?
[0:16] <gordonDrogon> xrosnight, can you identify its IP address & ping it?
[0:16] <deps> Thanks for the help! It's late and I need to sleep and sober up. Still haven't been able to SSH into my RPi but it feels like I??m getting closer. Guess I have to wait until I get home so I can log on to the router and find the IP. Night!
[0:16] * deps (~deps@91.103.35.155) has left #raspberrypi
[0:16] <Hopsy> gordonDrogon: I am waking up my pc!
[0:16] <xrosnight> yeah
[0:16] * nabia (~aiwass@bas1-woodbridge48-1176142201.dsl.bell.ca) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:16] <gordonDrogon> Hopsy, a-ha :)
[0:17] <markedathome> which machine is .110? the pc?
[0:17] <Hopsy> yes
[0:17] <Hopsy> 120 is pi
[0:17] <gordonDrogon> xrosnight, I'm under the impression that ssh is enabled by defaut in raspbian, but it's been a long time since I've installed from scratch now..
[0:17] <Tirili> Is there a website which explains well how to work with the debian squeeze rasbpi version? Like changing ip address etc? Are there guis for it or must I use ifconfig and other command line tools?
[0:17] <gordonDrogon> Tirili, google debian sysadmin
[0:17] <xrosnight> gordonDrogon: i used " nmap -sV -p22 192.168.1.0/24" and get its ip 192.168.1.101 , host is on, but ssh closed...
[0:18] <gordonDrogon> xrosnight, in that case I'm not sure what to do next...
[0:18] <markedathome> Hopsy: can you run tcpdump?
[0:18] <Tirili> thanks :)
[0:18] <gordonDrogon> Tirili, Raspbian is debian and there is a wealth of information out there about debian.
[0:18] <Tirili> ok
[0:18] <Hopsy> where markedathome?
[0:19] * TAFB_pizza is now known as TAFB
[0:19] <Hopsy> on raspberrypi?
[0:19] <markedathome> Hopsy: and which OS? I'm just about to flash a raspi image
[0:19] <xrosnight> gordonDrogon: i am just hugging my non-supported keyboard to wish some miracles coming
[0:19] <Hopsy> win 7
[0:19] <markedathome> raspi OS? wheezy 2012-16-12? or earlier?
[0:19] <gordonDrogon> xrosnight, all out of miracles I'm afraid..
[0:19] <Hopsy> ow wheezy
[0:20] <markedathome> tcpdump on raspi, or wireshark on win7 (which will see if packets are making it on to the network at least)
[0:20] <Hopsy> 2012-12-16-wheezy-raspbian.img
[0:20] <Hopsy> this one
[0:21] <markedathome> oh right, give me some time to flash my new toy :-)
[0:21] <xrosnight> gordonDrogon: hoppe so. if i need a new keyboard, tehn it would be a wireless one. i saw MK240 is almost perfect. handy and tiny
[0:22] <Tirili> gordonDrogon: Is there no root account?
[0:22] <Tirili> What is the default root pw?
[0:22] <Hopsy> markedathome: how do you use tcpdump? -a ?

[0:27] <SupaYoshi> is raspberry capable of running a joomla website for private use?
[0:27] <markedathome> Hopsy: 1. Start by going to control panel, clicking on ?network and sharing center? and select ?Change Adaptor Settings? on the left-hand side.
[0:27] <markedathome> 2. Right-Click on your network device and go to properties
[0:27] <SupaYoshi> internal
[0:28] <markedathome> 3. Under the device list, there should be a ?configure? button, click this and go to the ?Power Management? Tab
[0:28] <markedathome> 4. Make sure the settings for ?allow this device to wake up the computer? and ?Only allow a magic packet to wake up this computer? are checked, and click OK
[0:29] <markedathome> Hopsy: tcpdump -i ethX udp port 9

[0:31] <Amadiro> Has anybody ever managed to log in with the youtube plugin in raspbmc?
[0:31] * UnderControl (~Benny@ubuntu/member/benonsoftware) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:31] * yellowfish (~sorethroa@unaffiliated/yellowfish) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:31] * UnderControl (~Benny@ubuntu/member/benonsoftware) has left #raspberrypi
[0:32] <yellowfish> can I use the Pi as a programmable processor like the Arduino?
[0:32] <Amadiro> yellowfish, depends on what exactly you want to do with it.
[0:32] <Amadiro> yellowfish, the pi is programmable -- like the arduino, and it has GPIO pins -- like the arduino
[0:32] <gordonDrogon> Tirili, no root password by default, so can't login as root - normally login as 'pi' then sudo/su ...
[0:32] <Amadiro> but there are a lot of differences.
[0:33] <yellowfish> GPIO are like the I/O pins on arduino?
[0:33] * TiredOf (~user@cpc2-live20-2-0-cust992.know.cable.virginmedia.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:33] * bcd (~matt3088@96-36-148-109.unas.gnvl.sc.charter.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:33] <gordonDrogon> yellowfish, more or less - but 3.3v only.
[0:33] <Amadiro> yellowfish, they are 3.3V and have different specs for how much current they can source/sink and how much voltage they tolerate.
[0:33] <gordonDrogon> only one hardware PWM and no analog.
[0:33] <bcd> Anyone here into home automation?
[0:33] <Amadiro> and yeah -- no ADC.

[0:35] * CarlFK (~carl@cpe-68-206-15-125.gt.res.rr.com) Quit (Ping timeout: 265 seconds)
[0:35] <Hopsy> I dont even know why I am hiding my mac address :')
[0:36] <Hopsy> is it vulnerable?
[0:36] <Amadiro> its the only thing that makes you special.
[0:36] <markedathome> not really
[0:38] <bcd> none of these home automation guys are on irc, lol
[0:38] <Hopsy> markedathome: when I try your command nothing happens?
[0:38] <Amadiro> bcd, I've automated various things before.
[0:39] <Hopsy> > $ sudo tcpdump -i eth0 udp port 9
[0:39] <bcd> I'm looking for an extensive hardware to interface with rpi
[0:39] * babilen (~babilen@unaffiliated/babilen) has left #raspberrypi
[0:39] <gordonDrogon> bcd, I've done some stuff, but I reckon replacing some old ways with computers might not be the best way all the time...
[0:39] <Amadiro> bcd, what kind of hardware
[0:39] <bcd> I know some of those IBM UK guys were doing it, but they never mentioned what hardware they were running
[0:39] * djazz (~daniel@78-70-241-166-no186.tbcn.telia.com) has left #raspberrypi
[0:39] <Amadiro> what do you want to control and how
[0:39] <bcd> For the actual automation. Are they using zigbee base radios, x10, etc...
[0:40] <gordonDrogon> if you want to DIY, then once you've connected up one SSR without electrocuting yourself or blowing up the Pi, then the rest becomes easy...
[0:40] <Amadiro> in principle, you can use the GPIO pins or attach any microcontroller to the rpi via usb (like an arduino/teensy/stellaris launchpad/whatever) to control things.
[0:40] <gordonDrogon> personally, the last thing I'd do is use a wireless solution to control anything. Monitor yes, control no.
[0:40] <Amadiro> Then you can control about anything with that
[0:40] <markedathome> Hopsy: use alt-f2 and log in on console screen to tcpdump, then switch back alt-f1 and run the etherwake / wakeonlan command, then switch back to the tcpdump screen to see what is happening
[0:40] <bcd> mmm. arduino looks pretty amateur from what I saw
[0:40] * phorce1_home (~gvl2@pdpc/supporter/active/phorce1) Quit (Ping timeout: 250 seconds)
[0:41] <gordonDrogon> bcd, arduinos have been into space.
[0:41] <bcd> I wanted to go from USB straight to a microcontroller, with the rpi making all the decisions
[0:41] <markedathome> or have two terms in a window session if you have monitor / tv output from the pi
[0:41] <Amadiro> bcd, arduino is certainly not geared towards home automation in particular, but there is probably no particular reason to not use it
[0:41] <gordonDrogon> bcd, an arduino guided a model glider 22 miles recently too.
[0:41] <bcd> gordonDrogon, you can say that for a lot of things. what was it actually tasked with?
[0:41] * Dr_willis (~willis@c-68-53-185-131.hsd1.in.comcast.net) Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[0:41] <Amadiro> but once you've figured out what you want, there will probably be alternatives that are better
[0:41] <bcd> yeah
[0:41] <Amadiro> where better means cheaper, taking less power, smaller, mostly.
[0:42] <bcd> so arduino, is there a limit on the GPIO's?
[0:42] <Amadiro> what kind of limit
[0:42] <gordonDrogon> depends on the arduino.
[0:42] * Mike-N-Go (~Mike-N-Go@206.162.237.238) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:42] <Hopsy> markedathome: http://superuser.com/questions/524158/wakeonlan-and-etherwake-doesnt-work
[0:42] <bcd> Can I only interface with so many devices?
[0:42] <Hopsy> what is superuser?
[0:42] <Amadiro> bcd, there is a limited number of GPIO pins, yes
[0:42] <gordonDrogon> you can interface to gpio expanders.
[0:42] <Hopsy> ow wait, nevermind
[0:42] <bcd> lols ^
[0:42] <markedathome> linux / unix administration questions
[0:42] <Amadiro> bcd, there are models that have more pins and models that have less pins
[0:42] <gordonDrogon> people are controlling 1000's of LEDs individually with a Pi.
[0:43] <gordonDrogon> the limit is your imagination.
[0:43] <bcd> Ah, okay. On adafruit I had only seen one model but I may not have been looking hard enough
[0:43] <Amadiro> bcd, for things that are not extremely timing-critical, you can use shift-registers to get arbitrarily many GPIO pins.
[0:43] <bcd> hence I wanted to find a channel around here dedicated to it so I could ask the critical questions
[0:43] <SpeedEvil> gordonDrogon: and the shwartzchild horizon.
[0:44] <SpeedEvil> radius
[0:44] <gordonDrogon> :)
[0:44] <Amadiro> its schwartzschild radius, broham
[0:44] <bcd> Amadiro: the last thing I want to do is start hardwiring resistors and whatnot. I saw those methods, and that's an imitation of automation.
[0:44] <Amadiro> without the t, actually
[0:44] <gordonDrogon> bcd, if you want a plug & play solution then Arduino or Pi is not really for you.
[0:44] <Amadiro> bcd, resistors? you need resistors for about everything
[0:44] <gordonDrogon> although there are ready to go relay boards, etc.
[0:44] * Nunnsy (65a351d5@gateway/web/freenode/ip.101.163.81.213) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:44] <bcd> Not entirely
[0:44] <Amadiro> bcd, you won't be able to do anything if you don't want to wire resistors
[0:44] <SupaYoshi> does anyone know a good twitter bot?
[0:44] <bcd> A zigbee system just receives radio waves
[0:45] <Amadiro> not even turn an LED on/off
[0:45] <bcd> It interprets the data and processes the commands on a local level
[0:45] <bcd> which is basically two commands, status or update
[0:45] <gordonDrogon> http://arduino.cc/en/Main/arduinoBoardMega2560 <- 54 IO's
[0:45] <bcd> RPi would be the brain/webserver to the unit
[0:46] <markedathome> SupaYoshi: to post to twitter or to read from a twitter stream?
[0:46] <Nunnsy> Hey guys, just a little problem with my Rasp Pi... It's having difficulties connected to the internet via the web browser and hangs on a wget command. Funny enough, ping and traceroute both work perfectly... Any ideas?
[0:46] <bcd> Amadiro, do you see what I'm saying though?
[0:47] <Amadiro> bcd, no, you're not making sense at all.
[0:47] <Hopsy> markedathome: no nothing
[0:47] <bcd> Well, do you know how zigbee radios work?
[0:47] <Hopsy> appears
[0:47] <Amadiro> bcd, but as gordonDrogon said, if you don't want to make things yourself, arduino/pi is probably not what you want
[0:47] <Amadiro> bcd, yes, but what has that to do with anything
[0:48] <bcd> lol, you're putting me down before you let me explain myself
[0:48] <yellowfish> the Pi doesn't have wifi slot rght?
[0:48] <gordonDrogon> bcd, what exactly do you want to do?
[0:48] <Amadiro> yellowfish, what's a "wifi slot"?
[0:48] <SpeedEvil> yellowfish: correct
[0:48] <gordonDrogon> yellowfish, it has USB - so use a USB wifi dongle.
[0:48] <bcd> I want to find the hardware that sends out the zigbee signals
[0:48] <bcd> You can't just "find" a zigbee interface for a computer
[0:48] <gordonDrogon> why not?
[0:48] <yellowfish> is the usb wifi adapater the same quality as a built in one?
[0:49] <SpeedEvil> bcd: a ZigBee tranciever of some form.
[0:49] <bcd> gordonDrogon: Because usually they're tied together in a manufactured fashion
[0:49] <Amadiro> bcd, sure you can, but why would you want to use zigbee
[0:49] <bcd> SpeedEvil: Yes
[0:49] <Amadiro> yellowfish, the raspberry pi has no built-in wifi adapter.
[0:49] <Amadiro> and quality in laptop varies
[0:49] <gordonDrogon> http://www.bitbang.co.uk/rpi.html
[0:49] <bcd> Amadiro: modern home automation/signal reproduction functions on zigbee due to the size of the home
[0:49] <gordonDrogon> bcd, http://www.bitbang.co.uk/rpi.html
[0:49] <SpeedEvil> bcd: start with step 0. what are you trying to do?
[0:49] <gordonDrogon> zigbee adapter for raspberry pi.
[0:49] <frikinz> Nunnsy: ping and traceroute of an IP vs wget an IP?
[0:50] <yellowfish> ok, so what are some actual "practical" DIY stuff I can hack around with the Pi
[0:50] <Amadiro> bcd, okay, so just have a central control unit then, and sattellites in your house that receive commands via zigbee
[0:50] <yellowfish> im thinking of getting one and programming it for fun like the Arduino, but not sure if it's worth it
[0:50] <bcd> lol, it's not a satellite
[0:50] <bcd> nevermind...
[0:50] <gordonDrogon> Nunnsy, unusual, but it could be MTU problem..
[0:50] <Amadiro> bcd, satellite in the sense of "external node that receives and possibly relays commands"
[0:50] <Amadiro> not in the literal sense
[0:51] <bcd> I feel like I'm getting trolled right now
[0:51] <Amadiro> each satellite can be something simple like a teensy or arduino or whatever
[0:51] <Nunnsy> Hmm, gimme 5 minutes I'm gonna try something else.
[0:51] <gordonDrogon> bcd, maybe we feel you're trolling us..
[0:51] <bcd> lol, that would be counter-productive...
[0:51] <markedathome> Hopsy: nothing is being broadcast not even arp queries? ping 192.168.x.255 where x is your network address and 255 is the broadcast and all devices should respond
[0:52] <gordonDrogon> ah well. too tired to care right now as it's bed O'Clock here.
[0:52] * tdy (~tdy@unaffiliated/tdy) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:52] <markedathome> bcd: gordonDrogon: eve alpha - wireless upto 4 radio types for rpi http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/ciseco/eve-alpha-raspberry-pi-wireless-development-hardwa
[0:52] <bcd> The problem is, it's not even semi-pratical run a bunch of cables across my house to IO ports
[0:52] <Amadiro> I found it practical
[0:53] <Amadiro> but whatever, if you don't want to, use zigbee instead
[0:53] <Hopsy> markedathome: when I do sudo tcpdump -a I see arp requests
[0:53] <Amadiro> doesn't really change anything, except everything gets a lot more expensive
[0:53] <Amadiro> and a little more complicated, too
[0:53] <Hopsy> but, when I typ in sudo tcpdump -i eth0 udp port 9 nothing appears
[0:54] <bcd> Well I appreciate the help gents
[0:54] <bcd> That command seems really ass backwards

[0:55] <Nunnsy> Alright, this is a little strange, the internet connection works in the webbrowser and wget... But overall it's impossibly slow.
[0:55] <CarlFK> what is the command to bring up the config thing that comes up on the first boot of 2012-10-28-wheezy-raspbian.img

[0:55] <markedathome> nothing should appear until you do wakeonlan or etherwake. the udp port 9 parameter means listen and display all udp packets going to port 9, so until something is broadcasting nothing will be seen

[1:04] <TheLogan> I just got my Raspberry as a present yesterday (yay), anyway I'm sitting playing around with it now, I'm really new to linux, and I'm trying to get wireless network on it, but I'm not 100% sure how to do it. I have a Cisco ae2600 wifi usb thingy attached in it. and if i write 'lsusb' it shows up there, does that mean that it is recognized and working?
[1:05] <mgottschlag> TheLogan: not necessarily, lsusb shows all devices, even if no driver is available or the device is not configured properly
[1:05] <Nunnsy> gordonDrogon. what were you saying about a possible MTU problem?
[1:05] <Moopington> I have no idea, but I can help you get it connected. XD If you startx, there's an easy gui way to get it working
[1:05] <mgottschlag> so you have to set wifi up first
[1:05] <markedathome> Hopsy: well the 255.255.255.255.discard is effectively global broadcast (255.255.255.255) to port 9 (discard) and it is going out through eth0.
[1:06] <Amadiro> TheLogan, what does "ifconfig" say?
[1:07] <TheLogan> with ifconfig my ip would be after "inet addr:" ?
[1:07] <markedathome> TheLogan: yes
[1:07] <TheLogan> it says 192.168.1.5
[1:08] <TheLogan> oh
[1:08] <TheLogan> there was just some lag from when i pulled the lan on it
[1:08] <Tirili> How can I start the small config program again which is automatically started when I boot the raspberrypi debian squeeze for the first time?
[1:09] <TheLogan> it no longer gives me an ip adress, so i suspect that it is at least not connected to a network anymore, I'm not sure what else can be pulled from the print it does with ifconfig
[1:10] <TheLogan> Tirili: in the consol type raspi.config
[1:10] <TheLogan> oops
[1:10] <TheLogan> Tirili: raspi-config
[1:11] <Hopsy> should I ping that markedathome?
[1:11] <markedathome> TheLogan: ifconfig should have eth0 for an ethernet ; lo for loopback and usually wlan0 for wireless
[1:11] <TheLogan> Ok, I have eth0 and lo, but no wlan0, so i suspect that means the usb isn't being recognized
[1:12] <markedathome> possibly or it needs to be configured

[1:14] <Tirili> Thanks, TheLogan !
[1:14] <markedathome> it is usually a driver issue, and whether any firmware blobs need to be loaded to the wireless adapter
[1:14] <Nunnsy> Hey guys, any of you had problems with the Rasp Pi and a reallllllyyy really slow ethernet connection to the outside web?
[1:14] <TheLogan> Tirili: np
[1:15] <markedathome> Hopsy: really stupid question, but the pc that you are trying to wake is in hibernate/sleep and not the one you are using to vnc from?

[1:16] <frikinz> Nunnsy: its basically a pc so if your network is ok and you're not mixing ip adress, it should be fine

[3:02] <markedathome> for some reason you have between 10-20% invalid addresses, which is high, what does a netstat -rn say?

[3:03] <Nunnsy> thank you for you help so far
[3:04] <Nunnsy> *your

[3:06] <Nunnsy> Are any of the IPs there supposed to link back to my router
[3:06] <Nunnsy> ?

[3:08] <markedathome> all it says is that anything starting with a 10.0.0.0 to 10.0.0.254 is local network, anything else can be found going through 10.0.0.138
[3:08] <Nunnsy> ah okay
[3:09] <markedathome> sometimes you can find routing tables that contain weird routes, or multiple default gatways with differnet priorities
[3:10] <markedathome> gateways even
[3:10] <Nunnsy> ah, I did a clean install of Raspbian this morning as well if it's any help, so most files are default values

[3:11] <Nunnsy_> oh wait up
[3:11] <Nunnsy_> could be a gigabit
[3:12] <Nunnsy_> ahhhh
[3:12] <Nunnsy_> I see where it's going
[3:12] <Nunnsy_> that makes sense actually, because then it worked perfectly with my mac
[3:12] <Nunnsy_> I'll go check now.
[3:14] <Nunnsy_> it's strange though, because I can SSH and VNC to it on a local network
[3:14] <Nunnsy_> Nope, 100Mbps
[3:15] <markedathome> try grep smsc95xx /var/log/dmesg
[3:15] <markedathome> and it should say what speed it is
[3:17] <Coburn> No way the R-Pi would handle 1Gbps

[3:25] <Nunnsy_> Fair enough
[3:25] <dylan> wondering if anyone can help
[3:26] <Nunnsy_> Still don't understand why it'll work with the shared connection on my Mac and not with the router...
[3:26] <dylan> When I try to run "startx" while logged in as pi, it doesn't work
[3:26] <dylan> When I run "sudo startx" it runs fine
[3:26] <markedathome> Nunnsy_: maybe not enough power
[3:26] <Nunnsy_> Really o.O
[3:27] <Nunnsy_> Okay
[3:27] <Nunnsy_> I'll try that
[3:27] <dylan> Anyone have any ideas as to why this is?
[3:27] <markedathome> though if you have a 1A source it shouldn't be a problem
[3:27] <Nunnsy_> But yeah, working with one and not the other.
[3:27] <Nunnsy_> Yeah, I tried it with one and it didn't work but I'll try again

[3:30] <Nunnsy_> markedathome thanks for your help, I really do appreciate it and I'll be back soon, just have to get some things done
[3:30] <markedathome> no [roblem
[3:32] <TomWij> DeliriumTremens: Got sound working the other day, compiled in PA and used an ALSA patch. Now the next thing I need to fix is getting the CPU only slightly down, as that seems to be close to 100% and sometimes bumping into it causing some hiccups now and then. I believe I need to install omxplayer which XBMC can use which is a potential fix as well.
[3:32] <TomWij> Other than that set me up FTP so I can use it as a NAS with my external drive, no longer have to play around with cables... :D

[3:38] <TomWij> A wild guess is adding it to the video group so it can access video devices like the FBDEV.
[3:38] <dylan> Could you walk me through that?
[3:39] <TomWij> http://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/unix-add-user-to-group/
[3:39] <TomWij> if that doesn't work (adding it to the video group), then you'll need to google that FBDEV error above.
[3:39] <dylan> much appreciated, I'll look at that

[7:17] <chiggins> Could someone possibly help lend a hand in understanding how this LCD screen is wired to the pi? http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:26164
[7:18] <dylan> Let me take a look at it
[7:18] <dylan> http://www.thingiverse.com/image:150368
[7:18] <dylan> It's wired to the GPIO (General Purpose Input Output)
[7:19] * Macer (mace@scientiam.org) has joined #raspberrypi
[7:20] <chiggins> dylan: yeah, I can understand that much. Just trying to figure out more like, power, I think. It has a "micro-size potentiometer" added to it, which I'm not really sure what that is
[7:20] <Torikun> cool
[7:21] <dylan> Do you know what a potentiomete is?
[7:22] <dylan> potentiometer*
[7:22] <chiggins> Nope D: I'm a little new to electronics
[7:22] <piney> chiggins, that pot is connected to the lcd backlight terminals, it adjusts the backlight brightness
[7:22] <dylan> It's like an adjustable resistor
[7:22] <dylan> exactly
[7:22] <dylan> it's either doing backlight brightness, or contrast
[7:23] <chiggins> For that, do you think it'd be necessary?
[7:23] <dylan> hmm
[7:23] <dylan> not sure
[7:23] <dylan> I'm not the person to ask
[7:24] <dylan> I think there is a #electornics
[7:24] <dylan> electronics*
[7:24] <piney> chiggins, here's a youtube video about connecting a 16x2 lcd (like the one you posted) to a raspberry pi
[7:24] <piney> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lScSBePs6lU
[7:24] <piney> link would of helped heh

[7:26] <piney> http://learn.adafruit.com/drive-a-16x2-lcd-directly-with-a-raspberry-pi/overview another good one
[7:27] <chiggins> Fantastic. I already have my pi and LCD, gonna run to radioshack tomorrow to get the wiring and such.

[7:27] <chiggins> This video says that I'd need a transistor, variable resistors, and regular registors. Would that just be specific to that model lcd screen he has?
[7:28] <chiggins> since the link i posted had none of that
[7:28] <piney> that video did make it look more complex, look at the adafruit link
[7:28] * jimerickson (~jimericks@pdpc/supporter/active/jimerickson) has joined #raspberrypi

[7:50] <piney> http://learn.adafruit.com/assets/1729 this one is easier to see
[7:51] <chiggins> You're my favorite person tonight. Haha.
[7:52] <Grievar> Why do people do that instead of just supplying a schematic
[7:52] <Grievar> schematics are easier to read
[7:53] <piney> imo it's less scary to noobs
[7:53] <piney> looks more fun
[7:53] <chiggins> Less scary, yeah. I jsut gotta figure out how a breadboard really works
[7:54] <piney> i almost called it a schematic, but redacted before posting cause of the technicality.
[7:54] <chiggins> I get the general concept, just not where to plug things into
[7:55] <Grievar> chiggins: So a standard breadboard has rows of 10 pins split in half, each group of 5 is internally connected
[7:55] <Grievar> the reason they're split in half is so you can put a DIP chip across the split
[7:55] <piney> chiggins https://encrypted-tbn0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcSU4SemYxQeEykLLP9ly_9qWPPDNzglgZEh39E2HZGddV66YrpM
[7:55] <Grievar> chiggins: the long rows on the side are for things like power and ground that are connected to the circuit in many different places
[7:56] * Guest9181 (~sorethroa@unaffiliated/yellowfish) Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[7:56] <Grievar> chiggins: the + and - rows are not necessarily all connected together, depending on your particular breadboard. Best off just using a meter to check what is connected

[8:46] <chiggins> Am I anyone?! :o
[8:47] <xrosnight> chiggins: you are :) what you doing
[8:47] <chiggins> Trying to get my wifi adapter working with BackTrack 5R3. Heh.
[8:47] <chiggins> How about yourself
[8:48] <xrosnight> chiggins: planning to have a domain name. not figured out yet
[8:48] <pw-> speaking of wifi, what time during boot does the wifi connect?
[8:48] <chiggins> I got two myself ;)
[8:48] <pw-> i guess this is more of a raspbmc question, but you guys might know
[8:48] <xrosnight> chiggins: what are they ? :D
[8:49] <xrosnight> pw-: you could enable it. :D
[8:49] <pw-> enable wifi to turn on before an OS?
[8:50] <pw-> here's my issue: i set up my xbmc library to run on a different box (SQL server)
[8:50] <pw-> if during boot raspbmc doesn't find the library, it fails to boot
[8:50] <xrosnight> pw-: if you install archlinux, you could input "systemctl enable dhcpcd@eth0.service" that's what i've done on ethernet socket. It is also the same on wifi i think.
[8:51] <pw-> no can do, raspbmc comes packaged with raspbian =(
[8:51] <chiggins> xrosnight: chigstuff.com and chigs.me. public blog and personal domain. nothing interesting at all
[8:52] <xrosnight> it's alright. raspbian is based on debian . so it need rc.d scripts to initiate OS environment . or you might could add a daemon in the rc.conf
[8:52] <xrosnight> chiggins: what does chig mean, pardon :D
[8:53] <chiggins> short version of chiggins
[8:53] <chiggins> lol

[8:55] <xrosnight> sort of Backtrack :D
[8:55] <xrosnight> AWUS036NHR , is it a kind of wifi card?
[8:55] <chiggins> Alfa one.
[8:55] <xrosnight> you are cracking wi-fi passwd , an't you
[8:55] <chiggins> I've already done it, I just need a more powerful wifi adapter

[10:10] <WorkGroup> Hello, is here anyone he help me. My english is very bad. Anyone speak german?
[10:10] <Olipro> you could just uninstall all the crap you don't want from raspbian...

[11:14] <TAFB> as long as you don't browse the web, great
[11:14] <Macer> so far all i've used my pi for is an xbmc
[11:14] <TAFB> over clocked to 1ghz is WAY better.
[11:14] <Macer> oh i'm sure
[11:14] <Macer> i have 2 more showing up tomorrow
[11:15] <Macer> well.. later today now i guess
[11:15] <Grievar> what clock speed does Raspbian put the pi at?
[11:15] <Macer> one is for another media center.. the other is for a desktop :)
[11:15] <TAFB> 700mhz stock
[11:15] <Macer> what are they rated to go overclocked? the one i have is running 950 with a slight overvolt
[11:16] <Macer> 3GHz? :)
[11:16] <TAFB> they let you over clock 1ghz without voiding warranty
[11:16] <TAFB> people have em up to 1.2 with heatsinks and overvolt
[11:16] <Macer> yeah i figure anything over 1 would probably be best to have some sort of cooling

[11:17] <Macer> for the most part
[11:18] <Macer> i was a bit disappointed at the fact that a lot of the common wifi mini dongles don't have much linux support
[11:18] <xrosnight> I havent' installed anything on my raspberry pi. cause it cant recognize my keyboard lol and i ordered a new pair of keyboard and mouse this morning :)
[11:18] <Macer> broadcomm and realtek being the worst
[11:18] <TAFB> i'm going to try and pickup a 240gb ssd drive for my computer today :)
[11:18] <Macer> they fail to go n speeds
[11:18] <TAFB> going to head out and line up soon
[11:19] <Macer> are you sure it isn' tthe usb power?
[11:19] <Macer> or are you using a powered hub?
[11:19] <Macer> i was having a huge problem with my first one. i had to rma because the power was flakey
[11:19] <xrosnight> Macer: you mean me?
[11:19] <Macer> yes
[11:19] <Macer> my mce ir dongle was killing y pi
[11:19] <Macer> my pi
[11:20] <Macer> new one had no issues
[11:20] <xrosnight> damn . let me try it again. yeah. sort of, perhaps
[11:20] <megaproxy> http://www.ebuyer.com/
[11:20] <megaproxy> is this down?
[11:20] <Macer> i guess in a newer revision they fixed it by bypassing breakers for the usb
[11:20] <Macer> not sure tho
[11:20] <TAFB> down for me: "overloaded due to boxing day sales"
[11:20] <Macer> forgot the specifics
[11:20] <xrosnight> i used a 500mA 5V DC adapter
[11:21] <megaproxy> ;_;
[11:21] <xrosnight> sort of not enough..damn
[11:21] <Macer> i forgot how much the pi used
[11:21] <Macer> and how much is passed over to the usb ports/ethernet
[11:22] <Macer> most people still use 1A adapters tho.. but i guess not all are created equal
[11:23] <TAFB> i was using 10amp but pumped it down to 2 for safety :)
[11:23] <Tachyon`> 750mA is the absolute minimum for a model b, a model a might get away with 500
[11:23] <xrosnight> so martin lord king is a lier . haha
[11:23] <Tachyon`> I use 2A myself but I have three radio devices and a hard disk plugged in
[11:24] <Tachyon`> but anything over 750 involves linking out the polyfuse
[11:24] <TAFB> nice :) When I was running the 10 amp I had two USB hard drives powered from the Pi and was running a fan off the GPIO power ;)

If that doesn't work you'll have to use the other tool on the Pi page (flashnul or something), that one works perfect every time.
[12:42] <dr_willis> markedathome: you are running as a full user? not a limited user?

[12:44] <TAFB_shoppin> markedathome: that's normal. just format it, make sure it has a drive letter, then win32imager will work fine
[12:44] <gordonDrogon> TAFB_shoppin, I'd suggest there is something else going on then. Linux can manage its cache and buffers much better than you can.
[12:45] <TAFB_shoppin> yeah, it's probably my infinate loop sh scripts running in the background ;)
[12:45] <TAFB_shoppin> I have it flush my cache every hour, works flawless.
[12:47] <markedathome> right, nuked the partition with partition wizard, reformatted with drive letter <-- think it was this, previously it didn't have a letter assigned ; now appears to be writing

[13:10] <ShiftPlusOne> jorenl_, as reliable as any anecdotal evidence.
[13:11] <gordonDrogon> yea, I have an SD card that's on that list which doesn't work for me..
[13:11] <jorenl_> So would it mean "it once worked"? :) Or should I see it as a random list of peripherals no-one ever used with a raspberry pi? :)
[13:12] <ShiftPlusOne> It would mean that it has worked for the person that reported it as working.
[13:12] <jorenl_> And I'm not looking for SD-cards, I'm thinking about getting myself one of these (http://www.ortek.com/html/pdt_view.asp?area=46&cat=152&sn=76)

[13:31] <voxadam> Is it possible to stream video from a RaspberryPi using something like VLC? Does the board have enough horsepower?
[13:32] <formax> voxadam: sure does
[13:32] <TAFB_shoppin> vlc usually eats up too much cpu with video on the screen :(
[13:32] <TAFB_shoppin> but you can stream video only out of the HDMI port :(
[13:33] <voxadam> I don't need video displayed on a screen.
[13:33] <formax> well vlc isnt the best choice, but answering his question VLC works, and there are better alternatives

[13:33] <formax> TAFB_shoppin: not true
[13:34] <dr_willis> voxadam: I use my Pi's as a upnp server. they seem to stream well to each other. ;) so shoul dbe able to stream to other devices

[13:37] <voxadam> I
[13:37] <voxadam> I'm not too worried about the delay. It's a security camera type situation.
[13:39] <formax> most stuff at home I dont point it to the internet, instead I tunnel in from a remote place to my homenetwork and do whatever as if I was at home, that way you dont need to tunnel on your device, which I havent tried doing on a pi
[13:40] <voxadam> I suppose a tunnel is probably a much better idea.

[14:42] <str0be> What pins does the fan need to be connected to?
[14:42] <gordonDrogon> the software is the easy part - interfacing the fan is the hard part.
[14:42] <str0be> +5v?
[14:43] <gordonDrogon> you need to know what voltage the fan uses and how it's controlled.
[14:43] <gordonDrogon> most PC fans are 12v.
[14:43] <str0be> Oh, ok. I'll do some reading
[14:43] <gordonDrogon> your Pi doesn't need to be fan cooled.

[15:39] <gordonDrogon> If you run it at the start, then you'll not have any networking, etc.

[15:39] <IT_Sean> VNC is amongh the LAST things you should be starting, boot order wise.
[15:39] <gordonDrogon> so typically, put it in a script in /etc/rc.local, then update-rc.d ... in runlevel 2.
[15:39] <gordonDrogon> er. /etc/init.d not /etc/rc.local.
[15:42] <gordonDrogon> you can just: sudo apt-get install vncserver
[15:42] <gordonDrogon> or is there sometthing not right with the supplied vnc server package?
[15:43] <Hopsy> I have installed vnc already
[15:43] <Hopsy> its just not starting automaticly
[15:43] <Hopsy> sudo /etc/init.d/tightvncserver start
[15:43] <Hopsy> needs to run this
[15:44] <Hopsy> but, I dont get the runlevel part?
[15:44] <Hopsy> owh /etc/rc2.d ?
[15:45] <Hopsy> so first the items runs inside rc0.d then rc1.d etc ?
[15:45] <gordonDrogon> Hm. I just installed it.
[15:45] <gordonDrogon> Looks like it doesn't have any auto-starts. you need to manually start it yourself.
[15:46] <gordonDrogon> you need to create username/apssword the first time you start it too.
[15:46] <gordonDrogon> what an odd system.

[15:48] <gordonDrogon> yea, it's an X viewer.
[15:50] <gordonDrogon> I guess I'm lucky living in a 100% Linux world that I don't need kludgies like this.
[15:50] <Hopsy> also xfontsbase is needed otherwise you get some error
[15:52] <gordonDrogon> gosh - it does work though.
[15:52] <gordonDrogon> I have a 1024x768 virtual screen on my workstation desktop.
[15:52] <gordonDrogon> I can see why it shouldn't auto start though.
[15:52] <gordonDrogon> it needs to be started as a user, not root.
[15:52] <gordonDrogon> so ssh in, start it with vncserver
[15:53] <gordonDrogon> then use vncclient from your win PC to connect to it.
[15:53] <gordonDrogon> almsot too easy.
[15:53] <gordonDrogon> at least under Linux..
[15:55] <gordonDrogon> slightly faster than ssh -X too. probably no encryption going on.
[15:57] <gordonDrogon> oh well, that was amusing.

[16:47] <str0be> I will use SSH as I already have openssh installed
[16:47] <atouk> install a webserver/php/samba
[16:47] <pksato> str0be: first, use some head and configure sshd (start) and passwords.

[17:52] * boru|off is now known as boru
[17:52] <Amadiro> boru, I've seen some blog-posts/courses on developing OSes on the rpi, but it's fairly limited/hampered by the lack of information about the chip

[17:53] <bs123> yeah
[17:53] <Hodapp> boru: or see about putting it up at elinux.org - even if that's not completely relevant.
[17:53] <boru> I'm in the midst of writing some bootstrap code to bring the board up.
[17:54] <sheldor> web searches seem to suggest retropie is generally a disaster
[17:54] * msch_ is now known as msch
[17:54] <Amadiro> boru, there's http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/freshers/raspberrypi/tutorials/os/
[17:54] <boru> Yeah, I've been following the elinux.org stuff.
[17:54] <boru> Yeah, that stuff is moreso for novices with asm and so forth.

[17:57] <boru> mgottschlag: worth a look, thanks.
[17:57] <mgottschlag> ah, wait, I misread that
[17:57] <Cykey> And a little earlier I see "8192cu: disagrees about version of symbol module_layout"
[17:57] <Cykey> Does anyone know how to fix this?
[17:57] <mgottschlag> when you said broadcom, I thought you meant "without the arm core"
[17:57] <_ds_> Sounds like it's compiled for a different kernel.
[17:57] <mgottschlag> so probably not what you want
[17:58] <Cykey> _ds_: I got it from http://www.ctrl-alt-del.cc/2012/05/raspberry-pi-meets-edimax-ew-7811un-wireless-ada.html

[18:00] <_ds_> Well??? that one's an in-kernel driver; it's just not necessarily built.
[18:00] <boru> Hodapp: sure thing. At the moment, it's just some C and asm describing the register map in the datasheet, with some basic i/o routines for the UART and so on.
[18:00] <boru> Bootstrap code is the goal, then going from there.

[18:01] <mgottschlag> we are building a register database (datasheet + reverse engineered videocore parts) which includes a header file generator, that might also be interesting for arm osdev people
[18:01] <boru> Is there any word of broadcom being a bit more open about the hardware?
[18:02] * Hoerie (~Hoerie@ip24-182-173-82.adsl2.static.versatel.nl) has joined #raspberrypi
[18:02] <IT_Sean> Yeah: Don't hold yer breath.
[18:02] <boru> mgottschlag: I've transposed what's in the manual, which you're welcome to, to save you some tedium.
[18:02] <TomWij> viric: Still can't get XBMC to do it though.
[18:03] <_ds_> TBH, I'd rather have an nvidia GPU ??? at least there there's the possibility of an open driver.
[18:03] <_ds_> (I prefer AMD GPUs for desktop, though.)
[18:03] <boru> Nvidia? Open? Hardly.
[18:03] <boru> The nouveau driver has been a heavy RE effort.
[18:03] <_ds_> Yes.
[18:03] <Amadiro> _ds_, the open-source ati driver is quite good

[18:04] <_ds_> Amadiro, using that
[18:06] <_ds_> Cykey, you should have rtl8192cu anyway; just check that firmware-realtek is installed.
[18:07] <Cykey> _ds_: Yeah, but I was having reboot issues with the edimax WiFi dongle so I thought maybe i should try another driver
[18:07] <megaproxy> random non related question.

[18:20] <xacobe97> hi
[18:20] <PhotoJim> confuzled: use a powered hub. you can use it to power the Pi too.
[18:21] <confuzled> sounds good but the pi is in a different room from the server and i am trying ot get video in another room
[18:21] <confuzled> so its just a throughput issue on the hardware end regarding the pi
[18:21] <PhotoJim> well you can experiment.
[18:21] * [SLB] is now known as [SLB]`
[18:22] <confuzled> is this somethign that is likely to change in the future or is it a limitation fo the hardware
[18:22] <bs123> i can stream 1080p from a dnla server
[18:23] <confuzled> its a high end server streaming the data, im not sure what the problem is

[18:24] <_ds_> confuzled, clearly that's not the bottleneck???
[18:24] <confuzled> would oc/ov the pi help much
[18:25] <confuzled> i dont have it here to test right now or i woudl try
[18:25] <bs123> is your openelec up to date
[18:25] <confuzled> i used whatever the newest version was on the xbmc wiki
[18:26] <axion> not al 1080p is equal
[18:26] <axion> high bitrate scenes are a problem
[18:26] <confuzled> 20121124
[18:26] <bs123> right that too
[18:26] <axion> even with NFS, a low latency transport mechanism
[18:26] <bs123> can make a big differance
[18:27] <axion> my solution was to retire my server, and connect its drives to the pi
[18:27] <confuzled> strictly from a hardware point of view, is the pi capable in its current revision of playing all 1080p video
[18:27] <axion> couldnt have made a better choice :)
[18:27] <confuzled> ie, is this a software releated problem
[18:27] <axion> not all, o...as there is no standard as to what 1080p is
[18:27] <axion> no*
[18:27] <axion> just a resolution
[18:28] <axion> bitrate is what matters
[18:28] <confuzled> well im saying, my pc can play ALL 1080p video
[18:28] * IT_Sean hands confuzled one thousand and eighty of these "p" things he seems to be after
[18:28] <confuzled> so im asking if its a matter of hardware robustness
[18:28] <axion> dont compare the pi to a pc
[18:28] <axion> :)
[18:28] <confuzled> or simply that it is at best beta software
[18:29] * negge (~sam@212-149-197-124.bb.dnainternet.fi) has joined #raspberrypi
[18:29] <axion> it is not a software issue
[18:29] <PhotoJim> confuzled: your PC is probably GigE, your Pi is not, so that's a factor right there. plus the Pi, if it's under heavy hardware load, cannot saturate a 100 Mbps Ethernet connection which means that you might get pauses in the video.
[18:29] <confuzled> so simply a matter of the pi not having a powerfull enough cpu
[18:29] * Delboy (~openwrt@225-235.dsl.iskon.hr) has joined #raspberrypi
[18:29] <axion> moreso ethernet controller
[18:29] <PhotoJim> Possibly. Not necessarily, but possibly.
[18:30] <bs123> how is the server "streaming it"
[18:30] <axion> but accomanied by cpu, yes
[18:30] <negge> could someone with Raspbian zip and upload /usr/include/interface somewhere? I accidentally removed the whole folder
[18:30] <confuzled> i wasnt comparing the two just simply trying to define my question
[18:30] <IT_Sean> PLUS, if you are reading from a USB device AND using the ethernet connection @ the same time, you may be saturating the USB bandwidth... Keep in mind that the ethernet port is really a SUB <-> Ethernet adapter internal to the Pi
[18:30] <bs123> samba could = lag
[18:30] <_ds_> Now, were the Ethernet controller on PCI rather than USB, that would help???

[18:37] <confuzled> but how woudl i make sure
[18:37] <confuzled> (networkign literate, but very novice)
[18:38] <bs123> smb is over network only
[18:38] <bs123> no?
[18:38] <axion> so is nfs
[18:38] <bs123> ahh ok
[18:38] <PhotoJim> NFS is Linux/Unix network file sharing. SMB/Samba is Windows file sharing.
[18:38] <bs123> ahh ty
[18:38] <DeliriumTremens> i dont see much of a bottleneck with cifs
[18:38] <confuzled> the device conncects to both windows and linux systems
[18:38] * bs123 bows out...over my head
[18:38] <mythos> in fact, smb comes from ibm
[18:38] <DeliriumTremens> transfer over my gigabit ethernet at barely under gigabit speeds
[18:38] <axion> SMB is a protocol that can be used by both. Samba is a unix implementation of the protocol
[18:39] <echosystm> what kind of performance would i get from NFS axion ?
[18:39] <DeliriumTremens> 900MBit/s
[18:39] <confuzled> does that make a difference in what netowrk protocal that i can use
[18:39] * _ds_ sees at most 10MB/s over NFS
[18:39] <confuzled> oh i c sbm
[18:39] <confuzled> smb
[18:39] <axion> echosystm: NFS would push data as fast as your pi would allow
[18:39] <PhotoJim> You should be able to nearly saturate your network connection using NFS on a Pi.
[18:39] <megaproxy> http://speedtest.net/result/2218800940.png
[18:39] <echosystm> oh nice
[18:39] <megaproxy> yall like my internet?
[18:39] <megaproxy> :DD
[18:39] <PhotoJim> I posted how to connect to an NFS share on the Raspbian FAQ a few weeks ago.
[18:39] <echosystm> what is a good protocol for streaming video/music ?
[18:39] <BurtyB> I think you might be cheating a little megaproxy ;)
[18:39] <PhotoJim> megaproxy: wall can't use your Internet :)
[18:39] <confuzled> so, i just need to figure out how to change my synology to nfs
[18:39] <xacobe97> one question, should mplayer <url> work for streaming video from my server?
[18:40] <megaproxy> BurtyB, maybe a bit ;P
[18:40] <megaproxy> muaha
[18:40] <DeliriumTremens> confuzled: are you pushing those shares to any windows machines?
[18:40] <echosystm> i have my wdtvs hooked up using smb at the moment, but want to use a pi for NAS

[18:42] <confuzled> so if i connect the pi to the network as nfs it should help
[18:43] <PhotoJim> confuzled: likely.
[18:43] <confuzled> now thta my server will accept both smb and nfs
[18:43] <confuzled> i will try that the next time ihave the pi
[18:43] <confuzled> thanks guys
[18:43] <confuzled> its nite nite time
[18:43] <PhotoJim> confuzled: one nice thing about NFS with Linux is that NFS supports the same file ownership and settings that native Linux filesystems support. it's a lot more seamless.
[18:43] * lollo64it (~lorenzo@93-58-3-33.ip156.fastwebnet.it) has joined #raspberrypi
[18:43] <PhotoJim> confuzled: you can use a mounted NFS file tree the same way as a local one, pretty much.
[18:43] <axion> confuzled: yes, but keep in mind some high bitrate scenes stutter even on NFS, but it should help significantly
[18:44] <confuzled> another thing, how woudl i check if the connection from server to linux is currently using nfs or smb
[18:44] * _ds_ notes that 10.9MB/s is saturating the pi ethernet interface
[18:44] <Elite6809> Guys, on Ubuntu how would I bridge my wlan0 to my eth0 so I can connect my Raspberry Pi to the internet via my desktop's ethernet port?
[18:44] <monkers> yah thats about as fast as yer gonna get on a 100mb ethernet nic.
[18:45] <axion> confuzled: the issue is moreso the pi's ethernet controller not able to acheive full speed 100mbit
[18:45] <axion> you could try enabling smsc9x.turbo_mode for a speedup
[18:45] <axion> thats in /boot/cmdline.txt
[18:45] <frikinz> Elite6809: the easiest is to do IP masquerading using iptables. Probably ubuntu wiki has something.
[18:45] <confuzled> another thing, how woudl i check if the connection from server to linux is currently using nfs or smb (as in the conenction from my linuux install to ym server
[18:45] <monkers> Elite6809 - you want 'internet connection sharing' - http://users.telenet.be/mydotcom/howto/lanconnect/router/linux.htm

[19:52] <PhotoJim> echosystm: and its cousins, GuruPlug etc.
[19:52] <PhotoJim> echosystm: I run two of them, and they're both reliable.
[19:52] <PhotoJim> jim@devonport:/var/spool/mail$ uptime 12:52:23 up 181 days, 18:41, 1 user, load average: 0.00, 0.00, 0.00
[19:52] <PhotoJim> that's the one I run my IRC session on.
[19:52] <echosystm> hm
[19:52] <PhotoJim> my first one had a bad PSU. I had to replace it. Been equally solid since.
[19:52] <echosystm> this could work
[19:52] <blahee> wandboard (when it's available) -> http://www.wandboard.org/
[19:53] <echosystm> do you use it for smb at all PhotoJim ?
[19:53] <blahee> taht sheeva/guru is yesterdays hardware (armv5)
[19:54] <echosystm> wandboard looks very nice
[19:54] <PhotoJim> so?
[19:54] <echosystm> sheevaplug should be fine for my needs
[19:55] <echosystm> all i need is 2xUSB and gig ethernet
[19:55] <echosystm> its just for file sharing and torrents
[19:55] <PhotoJim> Wandboard does look nice. but Sheeva/GuruPlugs are pretty usable boxes for a lot of applications.
[19:55] <blahee> even raspi is old stuff. Soon(ish) everythign is armv7 or later and everything is compiled as armhl and these old systems are fading away
[19:55] <viric> the sheevaplug is 1.2GHz, twice as fast as the pi
[19:55] <echosystm> i am a bit worried 512mb memory may not be enough
[19:55] <viric> by twice, I don't mean the Hz. I mean the compilation times :)
[19:55] <PhotoJim> echosystm: 512 MB of RAM is a lot of RAM, especially if you aren't running a GUI.
[19:55] <viric> Cubieboard are trendy, no?
[19:55] <blahee> viric: so? My 1.5Ghz ODROID-X is ~10x pi
[19:56] <echosystm> cubieboard dont have gig-e
[19:56] <viric> blahee: there you go
[19:56] <echosystm> odroids are nice, but again not gig-e
[19:56] <viric> yes, the sheevaplug has been there for years already.
[19:57] <echosystm> i will try a sheevaplug
[19:57] <echosystm> smb performance wasnt great though from memory
[19:57] <viric> but when the sheevaplug appeared, armv5 was already old. But Marvell was pushing armv5 to very high clock rates

[20:25] <frikinz> Elite6809: kept the link http://pastebin.com/0d6eG1ar. The idea is there. you need to have different ip adress space between eth0 and wlan0.. this one assumes eth0 IP to be in 192.168.0.x
[20:25] <tpaulus> Amadiro, i want to use python, and wiringPi is written in c
[20:25] <Amadiro> tpaulus, AFAIR though, SPI and I2C are just mapped to character devices by the kernel
[20:25] <Amadiro> tpaulus, just make bindings for them
[20:26] <Randy_Adams_> anyone have any input on how to stream video from a pi behind a firewall on-demand?
[20:26] <Amadiro> Randy_Adams_, is the "behind a firewall" meant to imply that you cannot modify the firewall rules?
[20:27] <Randy_Adams_> yes. i want to deploy some pi's with webcams in the field and i have no control over their firewall rules. most only allow outbound port 80
[20:28] <bcd> Amadiro: The problem does not appear to RPi, if you remember what we were talking about yesterday. Arduino and Rpi interface properly. It's the HA industry.
[20:28] <frikinz> metawops: I've built davfs2 unstable http://p.quinput.eu/debfarm/pool . install with dpkg -i and then apt-get -f install to pull remaining dependencies. Not tested.
[20:29] <Amadiro> If that's the case, looks like you'd have to chose a TCP-based streaming protocol and then have the pi establish the connection to the target on that port
[20:29] <Amadiro> bcd, what?
[20:30] <bcd> The Home Automation industry is closed source, making it difficult to even use RPi and Arduino on an advanced level in home automation
[20:30] <frikinz> metawops: the source is unmodified, only a line was removed in the build script for "clean" (makes qemu segfault)
[20:30] <Amadiro> bcd, I'm sure you can find components that you can interface with using SPI/I2C/CAN/whatever.
[20:31] <bcd> Amadiro: Yes, but I'll be much more at the forefront of such development than I wanted to be
[20:31] <Amadiro> bcd, have you tried googling "arduino home automation"? Pretty much everything described there should be applicable to a large degree to the rpi or an rpi/arduino combo as well.
[20:31] <Randy_Adams_> any thoughts on how to make the pi start the stream on-demand? i thought that i put a file on a ftp server and the pi check for the presents of that file, and if its there, start the stream....
[20:32] <SpeedEvil> I find it deeply annoying that you can't make an open source ZigBee stack
[20:32] <bcd> Amadiro: The RPi and Arduino concept work great from what I've seen. It's the actually components of the HA system that are dificult to crack
[20:32] <piney> bcd, i know where you are coming from. i wish it was more open
[20:32] <bcd> SpeedEvil: Right?
[20:32] <SpeedEvil> however.
[20:32] <Amadiro> Randy_Adams_, can't you just pack a control channel into the TCP stream you have open
[20:33] <SpeedEvil> at the prices of HA stuff, you can just buy a hundred model A's. :-)

[21:43] <thetodd__> so more powerful boards like pandaboard and beagleboard have real built in Ethernet?
[21:43] <mbalho> hmm when would a usb ethernet controller cause problems?
[21:43] <Grievar> Why does raspbian lack vim?
[21:43] <Grievar> it has vi, but not vim o.o

[21:44] <mbalho> SpeedEvil: ahhh good point
[21:44] <SpeedEvil> mbalho: the hub being in the way means that the device can't do device mode

[21:46] * dero (~dero@p5B145197.dip.t-dialin.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[21:46] <Amadiro> thetodd__, apparently because it is connected wrong.
[21:47] <thetodd__> could we offload that heat by taking a model A and connecting it to a USB hub with it's own USB Ethernet dongle?

[21:50] <thetodd__> gordonDrogon: really? that seems like a big flaw. oh... I understand what you are saying
[21:51] <gordonDrogon> thetodd__, yes - the ether/hub chip has it's own internal 3.3v regulator - and just needed an external decoupling capacitor, but it was connected to the boards 3.3v supply, so the regulators sort of 'fight' and the ether/hub chips gets hotter..
[21:51] <SpeedEvil> I was about to ask if this is fixed in model a.
[21:51] <SpeedEvil> but then realised it was a silly question.
[21:51] <gordonDrogon> not a show stopper, but a minor inconvenience. probably, technically, shortens the life of the chip, but you know - from 50 years to 25...
[21:52] <gordonDrogon> SpeedEvil, :)
[21:52] <thetodd__> 25 years!?!?! oh noooooeeeeessssss :D

[21:52] <SpeedEvil> however.
[21:52] <thetodd__> I put a passive heatsink on it
[21:52] <gordonDrogon> mine don't get too hot to touch, so that's fine by all accounts.
[21:52] <SpeedEvil> it's violating the absolute maximum power draw from that pin
[21:52] <Amadiro> gordonDrogon, mine does when I transfer files
[21:53] <SpeedEvil> the device is quite within its rights to die immediately

[22:13] <IT_Sean> you are booted off the SD card, so...
[22:13] <trentg> yes but it could be all stored in memory theoretically
[22:14] <atouk> only if your rootfs is on usb

[22:17] <trentg> What I'm actually trying to do is copy my current filesystem to a bigger sd card

[22:18] <TAFB_ssd> :)
[22:19] <bs123> .
[22:19] <TAFB_ssd> in case that wasn't clear, you use flashnul on your windows box (assuming your sd card reader ain't broke) to save and then write the image, then boot it in your pi and run raspi-config to expand the operating system.

[23:15] <tapout> if I hook up my usb external drive to the raspberry pi uno, and the power is coming to the arduino from a phone-charger-cord (with usb plug that goes into wall)
[23:15] <tapout> do I need a powered USB?
[23:15] <tapout> powered usb hub rather

[23:19] <tapout> or does the usb cord from the power outlet give enough juice?
[23:19] * fayimora (~fayimora@95.175.159.8) has joined #raspberrypi
[23:20] <Lobs> it all depends on how much power the usb hdd draws,
[23:20] <SpeedEvil> generally, no hub needed
[23:20] <SpeedEvil> if the device is powered
[23:20] <SpeedEvil> it will use little or no usb power
[23:20] <bjp> the usb ports provide very little power, the hard drives ive tried can't be powered off it
[23:20] <tapout> the usb drive is only powered from usb, no external power adapter
[23:20] <tapout> bjp, sweet thank you
[23:21] <bjp> there's a good stackexchange post about it, i forgot where it is, but it basically says the usb ports provide no more than 140ma
[23:21] <bjp> unless you do some mods
[23:22] <tapout> i'll look for it, thank you!

[23:23] <bjp> ohhmaar: if it uses less than 140mA (i doubt it)

[23:25] <TAFB_ssd> ummm, "ls -s", what units is that in?
[23:25] <Amadiro> TAFB_ssd, "unit"?

[23:26] <trentg> "with -l, print size of each file, in blocks"
[23:26] <TAFB_ssd> -s the same? lol
[23:26] <trentg> that is -s
[23:26] <trentg> I guess it means ls -ls
[23:26] <gordonDrogon> -l is bytes

[23:27] <magi> Does anyone know how much current the gpio pins use when activated?
[23:28] * pinion (~Adium@99-13-236-73.lightspeed.iplsin.sbcglobal.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[23:28] <magi> I still have issues with a relayboard, when i set it to NC default, i can not activate/deactivate the relayport.
[23:28] <magi> If i use NO as default, i have no problem activating/deactivating the relayports.
[23:28] <gordonDrogon> blocks are blocks of 512 bytes.
[23:28] <TAFB_ssd> my log files with ls -lS: http://pastie.org/5581846
[23:29] <gordonDrogon> magi, the gpio doesn't "use" any current on their own.
[23:29] <gordonDrogon> TAFB_ssd, easiest way to get file size is to du -sh filename

[23:33] <magi> gordonDrogon no i kow, bad phrasing. I just read that the Ras Pi can only deliver 3.3V on the GPIO.
[23:33] * metawops (~metawops@p5DE8D141.dip.t-dialin.net) Quit (Quit: metawops)
[23:33] <gordonDrogon> magi, that's right - 3.3v - the max. any pin can deliver is about 16mA
[23:33] <echosystm> can anyone suggest a more powerful alternative to ras pi, but with similar quality and following?
[23:33] <gordonDrogon> echosystm, no.
[23:33] <magi> Perhaps that's my problem. When the relay is set to high, i perhaps need 5v to change the state of the relay to low.
[23:34] * slawek (~pi@46.217-171-50.tkchopin.pl) has joined #raspberrypi
[23:34] <gordonDrogon> magi, you really won't be able to drive a relay via the gpio
[23:34] <slawek> hi all
[23:34] <echosystm> ive been looking into cubox and such, but they all have big problems!
[23:34] <magi> gordonDrogon sure i am. I am currently driving my 16 channel relaycard with the 5V pin.
[23:34] <gordonDrogon> echosystm, there are lots of others - beagleboard, etc. but you're unlkely to find any with as big a current following as the Pi.
[23:34] <magi> I have no problem controling the ralays as long as they are NO as default.
[23:34] <gordonDrogon> magi, not directly - there must be buffers on the board.
[23:35] <magi> gordonDrogon perhaps there is, i dont know the schematics of the relaycard
[23:35] <gordonDrogon> magi, 16mA is not going to close a megnetic relay.

[23:35] <magi> Well, i can open/close each relayports if they are NO by default.

[23:38] <echosystm> i'd just like smb to be faster
[23:38] <gordonDrogon> it's not a server.
[23:38] <gordonDrogon> the USB is a bottleneck.
[23:38] <gordonDrogon> if you want a server, go buy an HP Proliant Microserver.

[23:47] <ohhmaar> well this is weird. does the internal ip of the raspi change?
[23:47] <dr_willis> ip would be whatever ever you set, or the dhcp server gives you
[23:47] <_ds_> Internal one's always 127.0.0.1 / ::1, surely.
[23:48] <magi> gordonDrogon http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b_6x_QmKkO4&feature=youtu.be
[23:48] <magi> Do you see the jumpers next to the gpio ports?
[23:48] <magi> Those jumpers decide if the relays are open or closed on boot/start.
