[0:01] <viric> chithead: you talk about BUILDCC
[0:01] <viric> HOSTCC is a compiler that builds for the target.
[0:01] <viric> But in any case, that only applies to cross-compiling, which is not the vcase.
[0:01] <viric> case.
[0:02] <TobiasTheViking> uh, progress
[0:02] <TobiasTheViking> still fails
[0:02] <TobiasTheViking> distccd[30357] (dcc_job_summary) client: COMPILE_ERROR exit:1 sig:0 core:0 ret:0 time:409ms cc libavformat/act.c
[0:03] <TobiasTheViking> distccd[30359] (dcc_job_summary) client: COMPILE_ERROR exit:1 sig:0 core:0 ret:0 time:337ms cc libavformat/asfdec.c
[0:03] <TobiasTheViking> this is the first time it has actually tried
[0:03] <TomWij> TobiasTheViking: Is that the output from the server?
[0:03] <TomWij> Because is concerning... That's localhost again.
[0:04] <TobiasTheViking> that's from server yes
[0:05] <TobiasTheViking> i'm doing an ssh forward, client also has "localhost:3632" as the target host
[0:05] * blink258 (~blink@108-196-64-135.lightspeed.livnmi.sbcglobal.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:05] <blink258> hello
[0:06] <SquirrelCZECH> guys
[0:06] <TAFB_ssd> hello blink182 :)
[0:06] <TobiasTheViking> TomWij: http://paste.debian.net/219675/
[0:06] * bertrik (~quassel@rockbox/developer/bertrik) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:07] <TobiasTheViking> in case you see something
[0:07] <blink258> I just got my raspberry pi today and put raspbmc on it, but I am having a problem with CEC
[0:07] <SquirrelCZECH> situatuin: I have webcam, my laptop with same kernel as my arm-board (raspberry debian) recognize the webcam, while arm-board not
[0:07] <SquirrelCZECH> what can I do?
[0:07] <TAFB_ssd> is CEC the TV communication thing? I wish I could turn it off, my Pi is burning my pasma TV so bad :(
[0:08] <TobiasTheViking> TomWij: i guess i could get the rPI to not use localhost, by forwarding to another unit(my lappy that has the distcc host is on an entirely different network from teh rPI.)
[0:08] <blink258> I have an onkyo rt-390 receiver and I would like to be able to use the remote to navigate through menus
[0:08] * markit (~marco@88-149-177-66.v4.ngi.it) Quit ()
[0:08] <blink258> I am not sure if there is a setting or something that has to be turned on or if its just not compatible with my receiver

[0:13] * KuchenKerze (~kuchenker@p4FDFD061.dip.t-dialin.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:14] <TobiasTheViking> TomWij: i believe that my /usr/lib/distcc/cc should be changed into something else for it to work on my host
[0:15] <TobiasTheViking> i mean, it doesn't say arm when it run's on my host, isn't that what would cause it to fail
[0:15] * XenGi is now known as XenGi_
[0:15] <TobiasTheViking> meh, no arm-linux-gnueabihf-cc :(
[0:16] * KuchenKerze (~kuchenker@p4FDFD061.dip.t-dialin.net) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[0:19] * lars_t_h (~lars_t_h@002129149047.mbb.telenor.dk) Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[0:19] <dr_willis> SquirrelCZECH: see what module the webcam is loading. it may be the other pc dopsent have the same module or for some reason is not loading it
[0:19] <TomWij> chithead: "some software" is only a small subset of software though, autoconf/automake doesn't have a notion of a host compiler and if there were one it would be introduced by the developer and often can be overridden by setting a target. And for those small amount of packages that are non-standard, the upstream developer better fixes it and it wouldn't be too hard to patch them either.
[0:20] <TomWij> But well, I mainly leverage distcc although I might switch to a "cross-compile --> package --> send to RPi --> install" script later if I feel like it.
[0:20] * m1k3 (~m1k3@pool-74-111-37-215.syrcny.fios.verizon.net) Quit (Quit: m1k3)
[0:20] * chandoo (~chandoo@ool-ad032250.dyn.optonline.net) Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[0:21] <TomWij> TobiasTheViking: Yes that /usr/lib/distcc/cc would need to be a wrapper to turn it into the long version.
[0:21] <TobiasTheViking> could i see yours?
[0:21] * timmmaaaayyy (~anonymous@cpe-74-73-185-27.nyc.res.rr.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:21] <TobiasTheViking> http://paste.debian.net/219677/ <- this is mine now
[0:21] <TomWij> It symlinks to a file which has as first line the typical bash shebang, and as second line: exec /usr/lib/distcc/bin/armv6j-hardfloat-linux-gnueabi-g${0:$[-2]} "$@"
[0:22] <TobiasTheViking> guddi, do i need to convert any of the other ones in there? (from my last pastebin)
[0:22] <TomWij> You will want to have the short ones symlink to a bash wrapper script
[0:23] <TobiasTheViking> k
[0:23] <TobiasTheViking> just for cc?
[0:23] <TomWij> All the short ones.
[0:23] <hockey51> My Pi isn't recognizing my other SD card
[0:23] <TobiasTheViking> thanks :)
[0:23] * Cykey (~textual@modemcable119.94-162-184.mc.videotron.ca) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:24] <TomWij> Your wrapper script might vary though, the ${...} trick works for mine, but you seem to have some more shorter ones that have version numbers so dunno how you would deal with those. If needed you could create multiple wrapper scripts.
[0:24] * Yachtsman (~Yachtsman@ Quit (Quit: gogo)
[0:24] <TobiasTheViking> wait, so i symlink armv6j-hardfloat-linux-gnueabi-g${0:$[-2]} to distcc, and i symlink cc to the wrapper script above, that calls the armv6j-hardfloat-linux-gnueabi-g${0:$[-2]} ?
[0:24] <TobiasTheViking> i get the bash in my paste don't worry :)
[0:24] <TobiasTheViking> just seems kinda cirkular, hence my question
[0:25] <TobiasTheViking> s/k/c/
[0:26] * Moopington_ (~mason@24-151-40-55.dhcp.nwtn.ct.charter.com) has left #raspberrypi
[0:28] * cliff-hm (~cperry@5e0edcf4.bb.sky.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:28] <TobiasTheViking> more joy.
[0:29] * TobiasTheViking installs stuff
[0:29] <TobiasTheViking> TomWij: i think it's working
[0:31] <TobiasTheViking> hah, wait what... now configure fails!!!
[0:32] <Macer> wow
[0:32] <Macer> http://lasziv.reprehensible.net/~macer/
[0:32] <Macer> that case is great for an ir port :)
[0:33] <Macer> well. ir receiver
[0:33] <Macer> i just wired it up and it's working.. good stuff.. the other case i had looked sloppy
[0:35] <TomWij> TobiasTheViking: It isn't circular. Compilation finds long version? Calls long version which calls distcc. Compilation finds short version? Calls short version which calls the wrapper which calls the long version which calls distcc.
[0:35] <TomWij> And yeah, configure on XBMC will fail a few times until you get all the libraries and such.
[0:35] <TobiasTheViking> well, if i can get configure to work again, i believe it is working now :D
[0:35] <TobiasTheViking> already got it to compile locally. got a boost error. I Think it had to do with me doing the PATH trick for distcc, and then the rename.
[0:36] * XenGi_ is now known as XenGi
[0:37] * m1k3 (~m1k3@pool-74-111-37-215.syrcny.fios.verizon.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:39] <TobiasTheViking> TomWij: yeah, worked untill it hit /usr/lib/gcc/arm-linux-gnueabihf/4.6/cc1plus
[0:39] * Syliss (~Home@adsl-108-94-48-239.dsl.chi2ca.sbcglobal.net) Quit (Quit: Syliss)
[0:39] * hawkal (~root@host81-155-238-190.range81-155.btcentralplus.com) has left #raspberrypi
[0:41] <TobiasTheViking> TomWij: do i need to make -j4 to send 4 processes to the host?
[0:41] <TobiasTheViking> or can a /4 do that?
[0:41] * klm[_] (milkman@unaffiliated/klm-/x-7727058) Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[0:42] * Mike-N-Go (~Mike-N-Go@ Quit (Quit: Mike-N-Go)
[0:46] <TobiasTheViking> and running, compile again, i think CC="distcc arm-linux-gnueabihf-gcc" is required
[0:47] <TomWij> TobiasTheViking: Both.
[0:47] <TomWij> -j4 will get make to try 4 jobs, /4 will get distcc to support 4 jobs.
[0:48] <TomWij> (It supports a certain number by default, but if you want to go above that limit you'll want to configure it)
[0:48] <TobiasTheViking> thanks
[0:48] * m1k3 (~m1k3@pool-74-111-37-215.syrcny.fios.verizon.net) Quit (Quit: m1k3)

[0:51] * fayimora_ is now known as fayimora
[0:52] <TomWij> TobiasTheViking: Guess you need to replicate that cc1plus in the PATH trick as well.
[0:52] <TomWij> But yeah, if you know / can set the compiler explicitly, that'll work as well.
[0:52] * lupinedk is now known as Lupinedk
[0:52] <TomWij> I think if you pass the compiler as first argument to distcc it will end up using that on the host.
[0:52] <TomWij> (Otherwise it uses the symlink)
[0:53] * m1k3 (~m1k3@pool-74-111-37-215.syrcny.fios.verizon.net) has joined #raspberrypi

[0:54] * Alfihar (~Yuuka@siberios.co.uk) Quit (Quit: Bye Bye)
[0:57] <TobiasTheViking> heh, i can't seem to make it work in any stable manner. i kill the compile, and restart it, it works, kill and restart, it does'nt even try, kill and restart it works..
[0:58] <TobiasTheViking> and it is quite clearly when i do -j4 :/
[0:59] <Tirili> Hi
[0:59] <Tirili> I have the following sound-problem using raspbian:
[1:00] <Tirili> I can play a .wav file using aplay, but I cannot play it using vlc. vlc only produces some noises at the beginning.
[1:00] * Kane (~Kane@ Quit (Quit: Night all o/)
[1:00] * XenGi is now known as XenGi_
[1:00] <TobiasTheViking> TomWij: ok, you wear talking about pumping? that was just a few more utils i have to symlink in the same dir?
[1:00] <TobiasTheViking> or is there more to the process
[1:00] <Tirili> I had to put snd_bcm2835 into /etc/modules to hear anything at all.
[1:01] <Tirili> Why can vlc not play the wav file? Do you have a hint for me?
[1:01] <Tirili> I installed vlc using apt-get .
[1:01] <TomWij> TobiasTheViking: Yes, pumping.
[1:02] <TobiasTheViking> Tirili: besides checking vlc log and check it uses the correct audio device, no idea.
[1:02] <TomWij> TobiasTheViking: You will want to cover any compiler that you want to distcc is that dir.
[1:02] <TomWij> But well, it seems your setup is slightly more complex; I don't have thinks like cc1plus.
[1:03] <TobiasTheViking> TomWij: great, compile failed. and i have no clue if it is in master, or my distcc crap :??
[1:03] <Tachyon`> it should be able to play wav?
[1:03] <TobiasTheViking> cc1plus is just a symlink from something else i'm sure..
[1:03] <Tachyon`> are you sure your wav is actually a wav and not something renamed as that
[1:03] <Tirili> Great! :D
[1:03] <TobiasTheViking> it gets covered by arm-linux-gnueabihf-g++ i believe
[1:03] <Tirili> I had to select alsa in vlc settings!
[1:03] <Tirili> Thank you very muich TobiasTheViking!
[1:04] <TobiasTheViking> np
[1:04] <TomWij> Tirili: Sounds like it tried PulseAudio or so... :D
[1:05] <Tirili> It was set to "default"
[1:05] <Tirili> Whatever that is.
[1:07] <TobiasTheViking> TomWij: did you "sed -i 's/-msse2//' lib/libsquish/Makefile" to compile xbmc?
[1:08] * Syliss (~Home@adsl-108-94-48-239.dsl.chi2ca.sbcglobal.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:08] <TomWij> TobiasTheViking: s/ -DSQUISH_USE_SSE=2 -msse2//g
[1:08] <TobiasTheViking> yeah, have that one too
[1:08] <TobiasTheViking> just, my guide is pretty old.
[1:09] <TobiasTheViking> i guess that might be one reason it failed, i forgot to do that :D
[1:09] <TomWij> Someone should just file more pull requests against xbmc instead of these hacks. :D

[1:35] <jheronimus> dr_willis: no, I'll try that now
[1:35] <mbalho> SuperMiguel: i was using fswebcam

[1:54] <FunkyELF> So... I measured 5.12 on a USB cable that I tore apart.
[1:54] <Orb> depending on your browser, it should detect that.
[1:54] <FunkyELF> After I plugged the Pi in and tested TP1 to TP2 I got 4.88
[1:55] <FunkyELF> is that normal... is it bad?

[2:05] <Orb> i guess i meant perhaps you could install vlc, but, that is asking a lot - nothing interesting on the video anyway
[2:05] <rikkib> I have vlc on several machines
[2:05] <rikkib> I tried on Linux and Win98
[2:05] <Orb> it would have to be a browser plugin
[2:06] <Orb> i only know of it to work on xp and 7
[2:06] <Orb> well, it works with ubuntu too
[2:06] <Orb> but it's an embedded video.
[2:06] <rikkib> My cam works on anything that can run mozilla, firefox, chrome or VLC
[2:07] <rikkib> No IE
[2:07] <Orb> it really should work.
[2:07] <FunkyELF> anybody know where I can get a regulated USB power supply?
[2:08] <Tirili> Here's my next question: I have a logitech z4 2.1 sound system and a sennheiser pc230 headset. Will I be able to connect the headset with the z4 and record my voice on the raspi?
[2:08] <Amadiro> as opposed to... a non-regulated usb power supply?
[2:08] <rikkib> My cam pointed at screen
[2:08] <rikkib> http://www.bencom.co.nz/cam/
[2:09] <Orb> you could probably point vlc to http://chrispo.org:5000 (that's not a browser url)

[2:12] <Gorroth> hey all
[2:12] <Tirili> I have an "aux input jack" on the z4 and the z4 itself only has one connector which is painted green. Can I put a headset into the z4 and the z4 into the black circular jack of the raspi?
[2:12] <Gorroth> i do believe tonight is the night i setup one of my RPi's to handle all DNS in the household

[2:13] <Gorroth> have you guys had any experience using the RPi as a small server? like, does the thing eventually burnout if plugged in for days at a time?
[2:13] <dr_willis> Gorroth: testing mine out now. ;) as a dlna server.
[2:14] <FunkyELF> dr_willis: this one seems good.... https://www.adafruit.com/products/501
[2:14] <dr_willis> xbian seems to take like 90% cpu even when idling at the gui. left that oin for several days now
[2:14] <rikkib> Orb, What distro are you running and how are you able to get cam stable?
[2:14] <FunkyELF> it says it is regulated at 5.25 because of the resistance of the wires it should be about 5V by the time it hits the Pi
[2:14] <Gorroth> dr_willis: okay, sweet
[2:14] <rikkib> If I try to run a cam on new kernel a uvc vid bug kills the cam after a short time
[2:15] <rikkib> The only way to get a stab;e cam is to run an old kernel before the 512 boards came out

[2:16] <SuperMiguel> Orb: how do you do that?
[2:16] <Orb> my raspberry pi has malfunctioned since i got it.
[2:17] <Orb> it freaks out under heavy network load.
[2:17] <Orb> do what, SuperMiguel

[2:19] <Orb> SuperMiguel, just some html to embed it into a simple webpage.
[2:19] <dr_willis> Been using my Kindel Fire charger. and some Tavelocity Chargers here.
[2:19] <dr_willis> also be sure to use some decent usb cables to run the powar.
[2:19] <rikkib> I use 1.2a wall wort?s
[2:20] <dr_willis> Yep. The travelocity ones say 2A. i think
[2:20] <rikkib> KCS NLA120050W1S
[2:20] <dr_willis> Fire is like 1.8A i belive
[2:21] <dr_willis> I wonder if running the charger into a Cellphone 'usb backup battery' would smooth out any current hickups.,
[2:21] <dr_willis> I got a 120000mAH cellphone portable battery thang. ;) it would work as a UPS for several hours powering the PI if i lost powar. ;)

[2:35] <d_nuke> off that USB battery pack
[2:36] <rikkib> Depends on what you have plugged into it
[2:37] <rikkib> I have just been reading stuff about battery life...
[2:37] <rikkib> RPi draws somewhere around 2.5Watts min
[2:37] <d_nuke> i think the 5.5 hours was with nothing plugged in, except a network cable

[2:44] <rikkib> 10W solar and 14Ah bat would be good but... Cost $60/5W $50/7Ah plus $2 CV CC reg

[3:41] <adeel> |thunder: i'm watching 1080p off it now
[3:42] <Gorroth> |thunder: i don't think it's very feasible. sure, you can play movies on it via the hardware codecs, but you're limited to 10/100 Mbps (theoretical, but actually limited by the USB bus speed), and so you won't be able to do any streaming from another system.
[3:42] <dr_willis> im watching the 1960's batman shows ;)

[3:42] <dr_willis> Im streaming from one Pi - to a 2nd Pi.....
[3:42] <Gorroth> unless you want to hook up a large external hdd i guess, in which case you might be okay if you're pushing data directly onto the hdd and not streaming
[3:42] <dr_willis> seems to work well ;)
[3:42] <dr_willis> but it is SD video
[3:42] <Gorroth> try it with 1080p, current movies

[4:47] <bsd1101> arch runs a lot faster, because it comes with the bare minimum and makes you add anything extra you want on top
[4:48] <bsd1101> you pretty must start up in a terminal, without a gui
[4:49] <markbook> I really like Arch on the Pogo plug and dockstar. At the time I started with those Arch was the only option
[4:49] <SuperMiguel> bsd1101: well im actually running my rpi inside a robot, just as a webcam server
[4:49] <SuperMiguel> so i only connect to it using ssh
[4:49] <SuperMiguel> and have a ms webcam and wireless card connected to it
[4:50] <markbook> everyone should buy one of the USB serial cables ;-)

[4:52] <markbook> for umm. booting and controlling a computer that's 2x3 inches without needing some enormous display.
[4:52] <FunkyELF> I logged into my raspberry pi and edited /etc/hostname from raspberrypi to rpi1 .... now on my other machine when I try to ping rpi1 it resolves to ? what is up with that?
[4:53] <markbook> because sometimes the boot process is screwed and waiting for SSH that's never going to come or just re-flashing seems... suboptimal>
[4:53] <markbook> ?
[4:53] <SuperMiguel> markbook: so you can install new OS using that cable?
[4:54] <markbook> you can log on when SSH fails to start. You can observe the boot process without a display so you can figure out what's wrong rather than just giving up
[4:54] <alajarvela> i dont think you can
[4:54] <markbook> you can run your pi just by plugging the power cable into your laptop and the serial port into another
[4:54] <markbook> (for testing, installation, configuration)
[4:55] <bsd1101> ....I've spent more than triple the money on accessories than the cost of the pie....
[4:55] <alajarvela> yeah but installing a new OS would require direct access to the SD card. the Pi's USB hub is not enough since it needs an OS to run the hub
[4:55] * XenGi is now known as XenGi_
[4:55] <markbook> well I do find that the price of a pi is misleading
[4:55] <alajarvela> markbook: how so?
[4:55] <markbook> I'm finding it's really about $85-100US when you add stuff
[4:55] <PhotoJim> I don't have $100 into my Pis.
[4:55] <alajarvela> well what do you consider essential?
[4:56] <PhotoJim> $70 for 2 units, $5 for shipping, $10 for two USB 2.0 hubs and about $5 for two micro-USB cables.
[4:56] <markbook> alajarvela: get the Adafruit TTL USB cable and you can run a pi with just 1 laptop
[4:56] <PhotoJim> oh, and $8 for two 8 GB SD cards.
[4:56] <PhotoJim> $108/2 = $54 each.
[4:56] <bsd1101> I would expect anyone buying it to have a mouse and keyboard. the only thing essential I think is the memory stick
[4:56] <markbook> http://electron-swamp.blogspot.com/2012/12/a-modest-pi-posal.html
[4:57] <alajarvela> markbook: what is the benefit? net and power via the same cable?
[4:57] <markbook> why would you need a mouse or keyboard if you have a laptop with serial?
[4:57] <bsd1101> I ssh into mine

[4:57] <PhotoJim> I run mine headless via ssh, but USB keyboards aren't too expensive. I have a roll-up rubber one that cost me $4.
[4:57] <alajarvela> i've had zero issues with ssh after i configured the pi (took 5min)
[4:57] <markbook> bsd1101: not if you screw up the boot process.
[4:57] <PhotoJim> if you add a cheap keyboard and mouse and an HDMI cabloe, then yes, I guess you might be in the mid-$60s.
[4:57] <markbook> it works great, until it doesnt
[4:58] <bsd1101> i purchased a 70$ aluminum case
[4:58] * markbook used to admin servers in Sao Paulo with a Palm Pilot and a VT100 app over a modem.
[4:58] <PhotoJim> you could argue PC motherboards are misleading. they don't come with RAM at all. a Pi comes with half a gig. :)
[4:58] * markbook is a minimalist
[4:58] <bsd1101> honestly I would spend a thousand on a phone that was truly open
[4:58] <markbook> heh.

[4:59] <SpeedEvil> I would
[4:59] <bsd1101> Iif my n900's screen hadn't died on me months ago I would have never upgraded
[4:59] <alajarvela> yeah one grand is a fucking lot for tech that gets outdated every few months
[4:59] <markbook> I won't spend more than $150ish on any hand-held tech
[4:59] <alajarvela> bsd1101: did it run maemo or what OS?
[4:59] <SpeedEvil> it would need a lifetime guarantee, be bounce able, waterproof, ...
[4:59] <bsd1101> maemo
[5:00] <bsd1101> community still provides updates for that phone
[5:00] <markbook> my android phone was $120
[5:00] <markbook> my tablet was $65
[5:00] <alajarvela> yeah. maemo is cool. physical keyboard is always ++ and jolla is going to port their OS for the current maemo phones
[5:00] <markbook> my laptop (netbook) was $450 and that was upper limit.
[5:00] <bsd1101> it's hard to get a hold of a real one now, and after using the S3 it would be real hard to go back
[5:00] <alajarvela> my phone is 500 dollars, tablet 700, desktop 1k
[5:00] <alajarvela> :D...
[5:01] <markbook> to each his own
[5:01] <bsd1101> I want a real linux on my phone, open sourced and all
[5:01] <alajarvela> bsd1101: eh, i dont like the galaxy series. it has a nice display and good soundprocessor but touch screens suck
[5:01] <markbook> I do tell people to buy cheap, buy factory refurb and plan to replace often
[5:01] <markbook> at $1000 a damn phone would have to last me a decade.
[5:01] <bsd1101> actually....they screwed the U.S. on the audio card. it's worse. So is the processor.
[5:01] * markbook used Moto Razor flip phones for about 8 years.
[5:02] <bsd1101> S3 anyway
[5:02] <alajarvela> bsd1101: weird. the EU version has gotten a lot of appraisal on the other hand
[5:02] <bsd1101> yup
[5:02] <bsd1101> I have the EU
[5:02] <alajarvela> then again, the new note came around the same time and that got a lot more attention here
[5:02] <alajarvela> i'm from finland myself
[5:02] <bsd1101> the huge downside is my inet speeds are below 3g
[5:03] <alajarvela> former promised land of smart phones :D
[5:03] <bsd1101> and will never go up
[5:03] <alajarvela> oh damn man, how so?

[5:07] <bsd1101> I don't know who to blame for the wireless problems
[5:07] <bsd1101> I don't know how the phone frequencies work but I'm guessing too many people on frequency is a bad thing ?
[5:08] <bsd1101> and making a phone with all frequencies so that a person can go anywhere with their single phone would be too expensive ?
[5:08] <alajarvela> i mean
[5:09] <alajarvela> GSM is used for calls and sms here
[5:09] <bsd1101> T-mobile in the U.S. screwed up the S3 the worst I think. They gave it 2 gigs of ram, but made it have a worse cpu than the other American S3's and still took away the audio card
[5:09] <alajarvela> 2g, 3g and 4g are for mobile data. 2g as an fallback when 3g is not possible. 3g is the most common here and lots of users so it's always clogged and slow. very few 4g users even tho we've got coverage in my town so I'd get max speed alone since no one is using it
[5:10] <bsd1101> where is this you say ?

[5:59] <Launch_Director> TAFB_ssd: bit suprised it has so little ram
[5:59] <TAFB_ssd> you have to setup your goflex over the internet first. when you do it downloads an update that prevents you from rooting it but I found my own work around :)
[6:00] <TAFB_ssd> Launch_Director: Yeah, but with a dedicated USB 2.0 controller and dedicated SATA3 controller and dedicated Gigabit ethernet, it just RIPS on not much ram :)
[6:00] <TAFB_ssd> And look how much ram I have free: http://tafb.yi.org/
[6:00] <Launch_Director> yeh i noticed that website is fast
[6:00] <TAFB_ssd> that's running 3 websites, 6 email domains with qmail, etc :)
[6:00] <Launch_Director> the CPU is fast so it needs less ram than the PI
[6:02] <TAFB_ssd> yeah, but the CPU is way older than the Pi one, why is it so fast? I mean 1.2ghz, but I had my Pi overclocked to 1ghz and it couldn't even TOUCH this thing :(
[6:05] <Launch_Director> wow definetly on my to get list
[6:06] <TAFB_ssd> Launch_Director: Here are the new directions for rooting it, after Seagate tries to block you from doing it: http://pastie.org/5587131
[6:06] <Launch_Director> first to get a that GPU i've been delaying so much..
[6:06] <TAFB_ssd> the tru is step 4, then you run sudo -E -s to root it, you'll get an error, but don't touch anything.
[6:06] <Launch_Director> arch has aptitude right? never used it
[6:07] <TAFB_ssd> right at the error prompts just type "sudo passwd root" and it works ;)

[6:08] <TAFB_ssd> :)
[6:08] <Launch_Director> i'm new to linux, i never remember how to build a source
[6:09] <Launch_Director> arch is a bit hardcore
[6:09] <rikkib> ./configure
[6:09] <TAFB_ssd> Launch_Director: all of the sources you download have an install file that tells you what to do, and 95% of them have a .configure script that does it all for ya :)
[6:09] <rikkib> make
[6:09] <rikkib> make install
[6:09] <clear`> configure, make, make install
[6:09] <clear`> lol
[6:09] <TAFB_ssd> clear`: yep, that's it :)
[6:09] <Launch_Director> i'll learn ofcourse
[6:10] <TAFB_ssd> arch is a good learning tool for sure :)
[6:10] <Launch_Director> would make much happier if debian worked on that
[6:10] <TAFB_ssd> there's an irc channel on here called #archlinux-arm that's great for all the arm-specific junk
[6:10] <Launch_Director> or does it?
[6:10] <clear`> isnt there a make clean
[6:10] <clear`> or something to clean up
[6:10] <clear`> i have been spoiled with ubuntu software center
[6:10] <TAFB_ssd> Launch_Director: because it has no screen/mouse/keyboard it would be super tricky to set up something custom on it ;)
[6:11] <Launch_Director> TAFB_ssd: debian would be custom?
[6:11] <TAFB_ssd> by custom, I meant "not following the official instructions" ;)

[6:13] <Launch_Director> TAFB_ssd: did you do any load tests?
[6:13] <TAFB_ssd> tons of load tests
[6:13] <Launch_Director> i'm currious how many requests it can hold up
[6:13] <TAFB_ssd> I did CPU, RAM and hard drive ALL at the same time :)
[6:13] <Launch_Director> and web requests?
[6:14] <TAFB_ssd> har drive, read and write over 100MB/SEC!!! :) It was serving a mind blowing 1,635 web pages per second, and no issues even with the ram with 2mb left ;)
[6:15] <Launch_Director> wow
[6:15] <TAFB_ssd> if you want, I'll put it under full load test, and you can watch how good the page still loads :) it only refreshes the dynamic content every 2 or 3 seconds instead of every second (because PHP wants lots of CPU that it can't get), but the webserver, everything still works peachy :)
[6:16] <Launch_Director> TAFB_ssd: here they are for RPi http://www.jeremymorgan.com/blog/programming/raspberry-pi-web-server-comparison/
[6:16] <TAFB_ssd> why didn't they test pancake? it was the fastest by FAR on my Pi!!!
[6:17] <TAFB_ssd> well, I was running my load tests on my status page, you can see it's got quite a few graphics and tons of content, lol.
[6:17] <TAFB_ssd> the Pi was only able to do 167 pages per second with Pancake, 155 pages per second with nginx and like 17 pages per second with apache :)
[6:18] <SuperMiguel> so if i dont have a screen connected to my rpi, and i just downloaded and put arch on a sd card.. how do i make it run?
[6:18] <SuperMiguel> or what can i do?
[6:18] <TAFB_ssd> SuperMiguel: you'd have to use berryboot

[6:18] <SuperMiguel> TAFB_ssd: care to explain?
[6:18] <TAFB_ssd> SuperMiguel: enable VNC in berryboot options, then VNC in from your computer to install/control.
[6:19] <Launch_Director> or tightvnc SuperMiguel
[6:19] <TAFB_ssd> SuperMiguel: google "berryboot" and then how to enable VNC on it. works sweet.
[6:19] <Launch_Director> TAFB_ssd: is that just another kind of tightvnc?
[6:20] <Launch_Director> still i won't need a gui for most of my stuff
[6:21] <TAFB_ssd> berryboot is a special bootable installer for the Pi, boots up the Pi off the SD card and loads a VNC server so you can connect to it (with tightvnc, ultravnc, etc.).
[6:21] <TAFB_ssd> for installing stuff without monitor/mouse/keyboard on the pi ;)
[6:21] <SuperMiguel> TAFB_ssd: let me try it
[6:22] <Launch_Director> TAFB_ssd: so all it does it runs VNC server after it boots?
[6:23] <Launch_Director> actually it does more
[6:23] <Launch_Director> i'm reading
[6:24] <SuperMiguel> TAFB_ssd: im guessing i would need to have an ethernet connection? wont work out of wireless card?
[6:24] <TAFB_ssd> it boots into a special "installer" and loads VNC so you can see it. It then lets your pick any Pi compatible linux distro and install it. you can even do dual boot or install OS to USB drive!
[6:24] <TAFB_ssd> SuperMiguel: ohhhh good question. Never tried it with wireless card, I would assume it wouldn't work :(

[6:30] <TAFB_ssd> the case is a really weird one
[6:31] <TAFB_ssd> inside is 120gb SSDd drive

[6:32] <TAFB_ssd> here is the performance of that 120GB SSD drive in that funky box, compared to super fast SD card in the Pi: http://ecuflashking.com/2012-12-06-RaspberryPi/Patriot_EP_32GB_vs_Sandisk_Extreme_120GB_SSD_Performance_in_RaspberryPi_large.png
[6:32] <TAFB_ssd> random read/write are the most important numbers,
[6:32] <Launch_Director> wow
[6:32] <TAFB_ssd> you can see the SD card only did 707k/sec random 4k write, the SSD did 8011k/sec :)
[6:32] <Launch_Director> TAFB_ssd: i mean details on the RPi case
[6:32] <SuperMiguel> so i copied the berryboot files to an SD connected a network cable but allim getting is a yellow light
[6:33] <TAFB_ssd> SuperMiguel: sounds about right, go into your router log and look for ip address of Pi and connect to it with vnc :)

[6:34] <TAFB_ssd> there's a "link" led on the board.
[6:34] <SuperMiguel> gotcha
[6:34] <SuperMiguel> so which client is beest? tightvnc?
[6:34] <TAFB_ssd> I like UltraVNC if you're using windows.

[6:35] <Launch_Director> wow
[6:35] <Tachyon`> you'd likely get better results with a real spinning hard driev
[6:35] <TAFB_ssd> Tachyon`: nope, not even close. I tested it with my 2TB wd Green hard drive. 4k random read/write was worse than even the SD card! lol
[6:35] * Milos|Netbook_ (~Milos@pdpc/supporter/student/milos) has joined #raspberrypi
[6:35] <Tachyon`> SSDs are good but still suffer from large sector sizes and reflashing etc., they just hide it better
[6:35] <Tachyon`> oh, odd
[6:35] <Launch_Director> TAFB_ssd: soo..what do you even use your RPi for?
[6:36] <TAFB_ssd> Launch_Director: nothing at the moment, I stole the SSD from it and put it on my new Seagate thingie :) I haven't decided what I'm going to do with my Pi's yet (I have two).
[6:36] <clear`> is a usb port on a TV powerful enough to power the pi?
[6:36] <Tachyon`> maybe
[6:36] <Tachyon`> try it and see
[6:36] <TAFB_ssd> clear`: sometimes, with a good cable.
[6:36] <Tachyon`> they're not all created equal
[6:36] <clear`> gotcha
[6:36] <clear`> but shouldnt be any harm trying

[6:37] <TAFB_ssd> SuperMiguel: I've never done it, I'd sure hope so. you found the ip address?
[6:38] <TAFB_ssd> Launch_Director: there are already many devices to do that (power commander, etc.) :) and flashing of the ECU is always the best option. It would be hard to replace the actual ECU with a Pi ;)
[6:38] <Launch_Director> TAFB_ssd: i'm only assuming it's possible i don't have much clue about ECUs

[6:38] <SuperMiguel> TAFB_ssd: ya i did
[6:38] <dr_willis> clear`: i think xbian is the top of the 3 xbmc-pi distros however.
[6:38] <clear`> dr_willis: i unplugged it last night after openelec was working
[6:39] <clear`> and now it wont boot up ;\
[6:39] <clear`> loading wheezy just to test atm
[6:39] <Gorroth> TAFB_ssd: sweet ride

[6:40] <TAFB_ssd> Launch_Director: the jury is still out on that ;)
[6:40] <Gorroth> TAFB_ssd: yeah, but from before the upgrade i did.. one second
[6:40] <clear`> TAFB_ssd: load up magento and see how fast you can get that to load :P
[6:40] <Gorroth> oh, actually, i don't
[6:40] <TAFB_ssd> clear`: is magento PHP cache program?
[6:40] <Gorroth> they're on facebook and crap, and i'm too lazy at this hour to put them somewhere more public facign
[6:40] <adeel> Gorroth: sorry, i went out for a bit...i'm OC'ed to about 1Ghz
[6:41] <clear`> magento is a php based shopping cart
[6:41] <clear`> that is slow as fucking shit

[6:44] <Gorroth> ooooh, way up there :)
[6:44] <TAFB_ssd> yep, the snowy north
[6:44] <Gorroth> hehehe
[6:44] <Launch_Director> TAFB_ssd: what IRC client do you use, and is it not running of the linuxbox?
[6:44] <adeel> TAFB_ssd: you ended up getting 1ft? we only got like 3"
[6:44] <TAFB_ssd> Launch_Director: I have a Windows PC with 3 screens I use for irc and usually stuff.
[6:44] <Launch_Director> oh ok
[6:45] <TAFB_ssd> adeel: omg, you should see the snow :( it's retarded
[6:45] <TAFB_ssd> where are you adeel?

[6:45] <heathkid> I'm tired of shoveling snow...
[6:45] <Launch_Director> TAFB_ssd: any reason you are using ext3 and not ext4?
[6:46] <TAFB_ssd> where is it ext3?!?! lol.
[6:46] <heathkid> 50 lbs. of ice melt and even the snow goes aweay! ;)
[6:46] <SuperMiguel> TAFB_ssd: it works =) you just need to edit a txt file and add vvncinstall to it
[6:46] <TAFB_ssd> SuperMiguel! NICE WORK!!!!
[6:46] <adeel> TAFB_ssd: ext3 is another linux filesystem
[6:46] <TAFB_ssd> oh, I didn't even know my system was running ext3!

[6:47] <SuperMiguel> TAFB_ssd: shit it doesnt support arch =(
[6:47] <TAFB_ssd> SuperMiguel: watch your language, and are you serious? scroll down, not on the list?
[6:48] <Gorroth> updating apple airport settings... may get kicked off for a second
[6:48] <Launch_Director> TAFB_ssd: dunno how good that is for the SSD
[6:48] <TAFB_ssd> SuperMiguel: on their site, there's a walk through on how to add your own distro to the install list!
[6:48] <TAFB_ssd> Launch_Director: what's not good for SSD, ext3 or 4?
[6:49] <Launch_Director> TAFB_ssd: not sure, never had to deal with SSDs and linux file systems, but ext4 is more modern
[6:49] <TAFB_ssd> hmmm. I'll have to see if there's a way I can convert it :)

[7:06] <Aranel> I got a nice idea, it's time to implement :) I'll make WhatsApp notifications for various alerts (service down, temperature too high, somebody logged in) for my Pi :)
[7:07] <Aranel> and I'll have hundred~ of questions.
[7:08] <TAFB_ext4> in PHP i had it set up, that if it ran out of ram, the temperature got too hot or the CPU was higher than 99% use for some time, it would send my mobile phone a text message :)
[7:10] <bjp> ext4 > ext3
[7:12] <Aranel> TAFB_ext4: would you share it? :) I won't be using text messages since I don't have a proper SMS bridge
[7:12] <Aranel> so I'll go the whatsapp way :)
[7:13] <TAFB_ext4> Aranel: nice. I just used a simple php command like "if $temp is greater than 70 degrees C then sentmail(phonenumber@mobilephoneprovider.com)"
[7:14] <Aranel> cool ^^ I have to use Python, since I won't be writing a WhatsApp client from scratch, I'll use YowsUp instead
[7:14] <Aranel> and it wouldn't play nice with PHP.
[7:15] <TAFB_ext4> lol, sounds like fun :) good luck
[7:16] <Aranel> ^^
[7:16] <Aranel> hey, I wonder why you added _ext4 today
[7:16] <Aranel> did you do something cool about it? :)
[7:17] <TAFB_ext4> I'm about to convert my ext3 to ext4 but realized you can't run it on the drive you're booted from :)
[7:17] <TAFB_ext4> so possibly it might have to wait :)
[7:17] <TAFB_ext4> and, arch doesn't use /etc/fstab anymore, so I'm still trying to figure out systemd.mount :(
[7:18] <Aranel> not. using. fstab. anymore.
[7:18] <dr_willis> no fstab? thats differnt.....
[7:18] <Aranel> sometimes I wonder what's wrong with this world.
[7:18] <TAFB_ext4> yep :(
[7:18] <TAFB_ext4> no more local.rc either, super piss off
[7:18] <dr_willis> sounds like i dont need to be trying arch any time soon.. and people rant about ubuntu changeing things. ;)
[7:18] <TAFB_ext4> i spent hours putting stuff in local.rc like I always do, nothing would run!
[7:19] <TAFB_ext4> then I had to make stupid .service files and run them with systemctl and it eats up all my ram and CPU
[7:19] * ReggieUK (ReggieUK@5aca56e7.bb.sky.com) Quit ()
[7:20] <Aranel> by the way, I noticed you're getting pretty high loadavg, considering only 7.9% CPU usage.
[7:21] <TAFB_ext4> yeah, not sure what the load average means/is :(
[7:21] <TAFB_ext4> if you look under my CPU hogs list, it shows what's using CPU. But I'm thinking the "system" is using CPU which that thing isn't showing/adding up.
[7:21] <Aranel> couldn't you stop most of the IO-consuming applications, force umount it
[7:21] <Aranel> then convert to ext4?
[7:22] <TAFB_ext4> you can't force unmount the drive your operating system is running from, or so I'm told.
[7:23] <TAFB_ext4> If I run a full multi threaded CPU load test, the highest I can get my cpu meter to go up is 79%, so the reading could be off by as much as 20% if the background system stuff is using CPU that isn't getting reported.

[7:41] <Grievar> the sound output on the pi comes from PWM pins
[7:41] <Tachyon`> composite unfortunately
[7:41] <Grievar> really?
[7:41] <Tachyon`> but it does 640x480 and it's cheap
[7:43] <Tachyon`> the only other wrinkle is it needs a 12v supply but it might (and I stress might) be 5v internally if you find the regulator and connect after it, I've not got one yet to check though as they take 3 weeks to arrive
[7:43] <Grievar> lol I like how the schematic notes say "do not fill holes" for P5

[7:52] <ebswift> yep, i have changed the hostname, but i'm sure i was running it fine afterwards
[7:52] <dr_willis> or did you make a differnt user with sudorights?
[7:52] <ebswift> so yes, 'pi'
[7:52] <dr_willis> Hostname.. Doh! that can break sudo if you did it wrong
[7:53] <ebswift> hmm, it was switched off and on a few times before i saw this
[7:53] <ebswift> (and worked in between)
[7:53] <dr_willis> well.. ie seen people alter their hostname in ubuntu break sudo
[7:53] <ebswift> i can access the files on the sd card from my ubuntu build
[7:53] <dr_willis> /msg ubotu hostname will give some info on it.
[7:53] <ebswift> k, will look
[7:54] <dr_willis> i rarely change my hostnames
[7:54] <ebswift> yeah, newbie here and i read one of those 'i always...' blogs
[7:55] <dr_willis> you just need to make sure its changed in 2 differnt files i recall.
[7:55] <dr_willis> and have the old/new name in one file..just in case. ;)
[7:55] <ebswift> i did the two changes and it did all seem fine

[7:57] <ebswift> the two symptoms are loss of network connectivity and loss of sudo
[7:58] <Gorroth> make sure you're in the proper group that sudo expects in the sudoers file
[7:58] <Gorroth> no, loss of network has nothing to do with sudo

[8:03] <ebswift> -bash: /usr/bin/sudo: Permission denied
[8:03] <Gorroth> ls -l /usr/bin/sudo
[8:04] <ebswift> -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 218940 Jul 10 05:17 /usr/bin/sudo
[8:04] <Gorroth> that's your problem
[8:04] <Gorroth> it's not set as executable
[8:05] <Gorroth> are all your files in /usr/bin like that?
[8:05] <ebswift> what's the ls command to see?
[8:05] <Gorroth> ls -l /usr/bin
[8:06] <dr_willis> thats weird.
[8:06] <Gorroth> an executable file should have something like -rwxr-xr-x on it
[8:06] <dr_willis> it should be suid shouldent it?
[8:06] <dr_willis> or that dosent make sence. l;)(
[8:06] <ebswift> erm, actually, they're colour-coded executable i think, and there are 3 files which are white - not executable, and those three start with 'sudo'
[8:06] <Gorroth> ebswift: you will see 'x' in the permission category if they're executable. ignore the colors
[8:07] <Gorroth> dr_willis: yes, it needs suid, but that's something to worry about later
[8:08] <dr_willis> i wonder how he managed to alter the permissions of it.
[8:08] <Gorroth> i have ideas on how
[8:08] <Gorroth> i want to see his feedback first
[8:09] <ebswift> there are a LOT of files, but i see 'x' at the end of the listing for all of them bar the three files - 'sudo', 'sudoedit' and 'sudoreplay'
[8:09] <ebswift> i have access to a ubuntu dist where i can do a chmod on them
[8:09] <Gorroth> yeah, you shoulddo that
[8:09] <Gorroth> sudo needs 4755
[8:09] <ebswift> k, i will try
[8:09] <ebswift> can i just do chmod +x sudo ?
[8:10] <Gorroth> no
[8:10] <Gorroth> 4755
[8:10] <ebswift> k
[8:10] <ebswift> chmod 4755 sudo
[8:10] <Gorroth> yes
[8:10] * trentg (~trentg@pdpc/supporter/active/trentg) has left #raspberrypi

[8:11] <Gorroth> sudoreplay needs 0755
[8:11] <ebswift> k
[8:11] <Gorroth> also
[8:11] <Gorroth> when you get sudo back, do this
[8:11] <Gorroth> sudo su -
[8:11] <Gorroth> passwd
[8:11] <Gorroth> setup a root passwd
[8:11] <ebswift> k, no worries, thanks for persisting :)
[8:11] <Gorroth> :)
[8:11] <Gorroth> i'm going to bed now
[8:13] <ebswift> rightio, just booting up after changing now
[8:13] <ebswift> hah, 'segmentation fault'
[8:13] <ebswift> ah well
[8:14] <ebswift> that's in response to 'sudo bash'
[8:14] <Gorroth> same thing with 'sudo ls'?
[8:14] <ebswift> well rebuilding will be more practice, then i'll make an image when it's working :/
[8:14] <ebswift> yep same message
[8:15] <Gorroth> you could do some debugging if it dumps core, but if the system is fairly pristine, i'd just get my files off it and re-image it

[8:20] <sundancer> hi there!
[8:20] <sundancer> im accessing my raspberry pi over SSH (via WiFi dongle)
[8:20] <dr_willis> hello.
[8:21] <dr_willis> keep your dongle covered up... its cold outside.
[8:21] <dr_willis> ;)
[8:21] <sundancer> sometimes i take my RPI to the office where we have different WiFi settings than i have at home
[8:21] <sundancer> so how could i make RPI detect which ssid is present and connect automaticaly?
[8:21] <dr_willis> Trying to figure out how to build my pi into my lunchbox. ;)
[8:21] <sundancer> dr_willis its foiled and shielded :)
[8:21] <dr_willis> someone was in here the other days asking just that sundancer
[8:22] <dr_willis> I think the wifi configs in /etc/ have that option
[8:22] <dr_willis> you can have a stanza/entry for each ssid
[8:22] <dr_willis> but thatss about all i rember on it. :) he was working on a fancy script.. then found out it was a feature of the networkconfig tools
[8:23] <clear`> would also depend on the OS

[8:25] <clear`> see if that will help you
[8:26] <sundancer> clear` thank you but i already have wifi up and running
[8:26] <dr_willis> the config file can have a seperate entry for each ssid.
[8:27] <sundancer> can you point me to a `man' page or something? i never figured out how to define separate entries
[8:27] <ebswift> i've got an example of separate entries at the end of my doco here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1TZUCrLX5VnlHDCmrMFW7jj5hiED7FkMchHHUmzaXwfs/edit
[8:28] <ebswift> there's a 'home' and 'work', though untested so far

[8:31] <sundancer> many thanks!
[8:34] <ebswift> hope it helped/works :)
[8:35] <sundancer> in the office we have WPA2-Personal security mode, AES algorithm and preshared key
[8:35] <sundancer> how should this be defined in config?
[8:35] <sundancer> proto=RSN .. what is that
[8:35] <sundancer> again, manual page appretiated :)
[8:36] <sundancer> is this wpasupplicant stuff?
[8:37] <hyperair> wpa_supplicant.conf(5)
[8:37] <hyperair> yes it is.
[8:37] <hyperair> # RSN = WPA2/IEEE 802.11i (also WPA2 can be used as an alias for RSN)

[8:38] <sundancer> thank you!
[8:38] <hyperair> hmm i didn't know solwise made wifi dongles.
[8:39] * hyperair had an aztech router that had a solwise equivalent that used the same firmware
[8:40] <ebswift> sorry, just afk for a couple of minutes...
[8:42] <dr_willis> the config file can have a seperate entry for each ssid.

[8:48] <dr_willis> we.. xbian seems to work very well. I still wonder why xbian and openelec both seem to take like 90% of the cpu just to display the gui.
[8:48] <dr_willis> its not even playing a movie
[8:49] <TAFB_ext4> dr_willis: it constantly draws the screen 60 times per second
[8:49] <dr_willis> what if i turn off the tv. ;P
[8:49] <TAFB_ext4> not sure :)
[8:50] <dr_willis> its going to be working as a upnp server also. so it seems a little too cpu intenive to just sit there all day doing that
[8:50] <TAFB_ext4> hmm tricky
[8:51] <dr_willis> it is working well as a upnp server. :) openelec and xbian both see each other and share files to each other.
[8:51] <dr_willis> couldent figure out why xbian wasent seeing openelec.. but then i realized.. openelec had no files to share. ;P

[9:57] <Draylor> hah, always a fun way to kill things
[9:57] <TAFB_ext4> yeah :( converted ext3 to ext4 and it booted! I was like YAY! So i added some funky stuff to my fstab options "noatime,data=writeback,barrier=0,nobh,errors=remount-ro"
[9:57] <TAFB_ext4> and then she no boot
[9:58] <TAFB_ext4> so I took the drive, put it in knoppix live linux, removed my fstab config and put it back the way it was, and still no boot :(
[9:58] <TAFB_ext4> so now it's re-imaging the drive from the backup I made right before I started messing around :)
[10:01] <Draylor> hah
[10:01] <Draylor> at least you bothered with a backup, most wouldnt :)
[10:01] <TAFB_ext4> yeah, it's SSD so it backs up fast :) and I put so much work into it, just got qmail all set up today (omg, lol), so didn't wanna mess it.
[10:02] <Macer> has the problem with sd corruption in turbo mode been addressed ?
[10:02] <TAFB_ext4> was reading ext3 to ext4 can be a problem, if your volume gets flagged dirty it won't boot from it, etc. so I didn't wanna risk it, especially on a box with no graphics card!
[10:02] <Macer> i haven't checked on that in a while :)
[10:02] <TAFB_ext4> Macer: nope, but you can use your own custom config and screw raspi-config and 1ghz works peachy.
[10:03] <Macer> TAFB_ext4: ah ok... i am running 950 now as it is
[10:03] <Macer> :)
[10:03] <Macer> i was just curious if the turbo mode was fixed.. not sure exactly what it does but it sounds faster
[10:03] <Macer> like a loud muffler on a car going 20mph
[10:04] <TAFB_ext4> lol
[10:04] <Macer> i mean does it even help when you run 1GHz?
[10:04] <TAFB_ext4> I like loud mufflers: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oHPGnl7vpB0
[10:05] <Macer> i figure it just handled the clock freq a bit faster or something
[10:05] <TAFB_ext4> whops, wrong vid :) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=15k1vvDeEvo
[10:05] <TAFB_ext4> not sure much of a diff between 950 and 1ghz
[10:05] <Macer> i got my other 2 pis yesterday
[10:05] <TAFB_ext4> do you know your mips speed currently?
[10:05] <Macer> no not off the top of my head
[10:05] <TAFB_ext4> k. at 1ghz it's 992
[10:05] <TAFB_ext4> so if you run that cpuinfo thing
[10:05] <Macer> i only use the one that is set up as a media player
[10:05] <TAFB_ext4> you'll get an idea of the diff.
[10:06] <Macer> i'm going to set up the 3rd one as a "desktop"
[10:06] <Macer> heh
[10:06] <TAFB_ext4> lol

[10:06] <Macer> really? but other armv6 stuff browses the web just fine
[10:07] <TAFB_ext4> I dunno. My Pi really sucked for the web, lxde/xwindows doesn't have GPU accelleration so as soon as you click one thing or go to one page cpu is at 100%
[10:07] <Macer> i could see using ff as something that totally sucks
[10:07] <Macer> oh wow really?
[10:08] <Macer> what's up with that?
[10:08] <Macer> why no gpu accel?
[10:08] <TAFB_ext4> not sure, it's a special GPU for the Pi so no driver for xwindows/lxde yet.
[10:08] <Macer> wow.. wtf? :)
[10:08] <Macer> that sure hurts performance
[10:08] <TAFB_ext4> for sure, especially at 1080p res
[10:08] <TAFB_ext4> you can watch it draw the pixels

[10:09] <dr_willis> They seem very well done.
[10:10] <Macer> but i thought the xbmc menu is accel
[10:10] <Macer> otherwise it wouln't work :)
[10:10] <dr_willis> openelec. xbian. and raspbmc are the only 3 i know of.. I heard that the newest raspbmc showed some improvement..
[10:10] <dr_willis> just the idling menu of xbmc = 90% cpu load.
[10:10] <Macer> oe is the best one
[10:10] <dr_willis> when it starts playing videos its down to 79%
[10:10] <dr_willis> ;)
[10:10] <TAFB_ext4> rofl
[10:10] <Macer> really? mine drops to under 50 when playing video
[10:10] <dr_willis> xbian has a slight lead ;) in my 'tests'
[10:11] <Macer> heh
[10:11] <TAFB_ext4> more video to draw the menu than stream 1080p ;)
[10:11] <dr_willis> i was also scanning videos/updateing stuff
[10:11] <Hoerie> <dr_willis> just the idling menu of xbmc = 90% cpu load. <-- only if you look in xbmc
[10:11] <Macer> i tried all of them and oe was the best one
[10:11] <Hoerie> as it needs to redraw the graph, which takes cpu
[10:11] <dr_willis> i had top going over ssh.
[10:11] <Macer> i think the menu is still accelerated tho
[10:11] <Hoerie> mine idles a lot lower than that
[10:11] <Macer> the high cpu usage is for other things.. like processing menu movements
[10:11] <Macer> background processes for xbmc etc
[10:11] <Macer> like redrawing your fanart :)
[10:12] <Hoerie> 24% atm

[10:12] <Macer> reminds me of the n810
[10:13] <Hoerie> <Macer> but i am shocked that the X driver for the pi in raspbian doesn't have gpu accel <-- they didn't get around to doing it yet
[10:13] <Macer> n810 had a powervr gpu that never got a driver
[10:13] <Macer> neither open nor blob
[10:13] <Macer> so you had a gpu just sitting there doing nothing heh
[10:13] <Hoerie> so did the htc kaiser
[10:14] <Macer> that's just crazy
[10:14] <Macer> sounds like something apple would do to maek a new iphone seem better
[10:14] <Hoerie> it's just cutting cost
[10:14] <Macer> "now with better 3d"
[10:14] <Hoerie> for a commercial phone, it is rather close to false advertising
[10:14] <dr_willis> Ok. nothing playing.. sitting at the main menu xbmc.bin is jumping from 30 to 60% of cpu according to top from a ssh session. ;)
[10:14] <Macer> that $50 to pay some india indian dev for 2 weeks worth of work making an accel blob would have been too much? :)
[10:14] <Hoerie> for something like the pi it is simply a work-in-progress thing
[10:15] <Hoerie> <Macer> that $50 to pay some india indian dev for 2 weeks worth of work making an accel blob would have been too much? :) <-- I'm hoping you don't really believe that

[10:16] <TAFB_ext3> yay! you're praying for me worked! it booted!! http://tafb.yi.org/
[10:16] <Hoerie> I am not privy to how Google developes android, I would be surprised if coding 3d acceleration would take anyone 2 weeks though
[10:16] <TAFB_ext3> yay
[10:16] <Macer> Hoerie: not the acceleration no.. but a driver to access it maybe
[10:17] <Hoerie> if you think it's so easy, perhaps you could do it and release to the public ;-)
[10:17] <Macer> Hoerie: i would but i'm sure from whomever the gpu is derived would fight tooth and nail
[10:17] <Macer> there is no such thing as "open" hardware
[10:18] <Macer> software maybe :) and most of that was from devs running decompilers on stuff and then repackaging it with different code to avoid getting sued
[10:18] <Macer> wwhich is where i am sure a lot of the open drivers in linux came from
[10:19] <Hoerie> for the 3d chip in the htc kaiser, there were drivers - htc just didn't feel like paying to license them and kept saying 'we'll release drivers later'
[10:19] <Macer> Hoerie: same thing happened to a lot of devices
[10:19] <Macer> just like the n810 heh... there was an awesome arm decompiler but the company ran like.. dna testing in order to sell it to you
[10:19] <Spiffy> htc did the same thing with the GPS in a phone I had ??? The chip was there, and active. HTC just didn't enable it in their firmware. Thanks a lot a-holes...
[10:20] <Macer> Spiffy: you should have seen the n900 and n9
[10:20] <Macer> devs were geared up because nokia announced a "new and open platform"
[10:20] <Macer> and it was anything but
[10:20] <Macer> huge chunks of maemo were closed
[10:20] <Macer> talk about marketing fail
[10:21] <Spiffy> Also, it fell apart for no good reason. Got a new one 3 times ??? all fell apart for no reason. Guess it was put together by little children???
[10:21] <Hoerie> more like people having different understandings of open

[10:22] <Hoerie> if there's an api with documentation, that is more open than no api and no documentation
[10:23] <Macer> an api is just a way to keep something closed and say it isn't
[10:23] <Macer> it't like hardware drm heh
[10:23] <Hoerie> it also allows companies to not risk losing an innovative edge
[10:24] <Macer> you mean it prevents the chinese from mass replicating their hardware
[10:24] <Hoerie> something like that yes
[10:24] <Macer> then that means it is closed ;)
[10:24] <Macer> as i stated earlier.. there is no such thing as open hardware
[10:24] <Hoerie> only up to a certain level, it's not a black and white situation
[10:25] <Macer> it is very black and white... nobody wants to put up the money required to create a truly open platform because they are worried about a return on their investment
[10:25] <Hoerie> I'd rather have something workable than wait for the utopian totally open linux-zealot approved stuff to arrive
[10:25] <Macer> realistically it would be possible through branding
[10:26] <Macer> but who wants to try that? :) plus most companies... the pi foundation included.. make their own hardware
[10:26] <Macer> it is all the same thing slapped together differently
[10:26] <Hoerie> in the end companies have to do this, and they would rather have more profit than less
[10:27] <Macer> Hoerie: if the pi foundation funded a truly open platform which didn't have arm licensing attachments and gpu licensing(closed) attachments .. they would still sell them very well because of their branding and their intent
[10:27] <Hoerie> and there are a lot more Apple buying people than openness fundamentalists in the world
[10:27] <Hoerie> except they would either get nothing done, or have to do it all themselves - spending a lot of money they don't have
[10:27] <Macer> and imagine.. apple products are simply x86 hardware and the same arm hardware you use in other systems.. just branded and marketed better
[10:28] <Macer> maybe.. nobody has tried it
[10:28] <Hoerie> perhaps that is an indication in and of itself ;-)
[10:28] <Macer> perhaps
[10:28] <Macer> either way... no hardware is open :)
[10:29] * Gadget-Mac (~swp@ has joined #raspberrypi
[10:29] <Hoerie> I wasn't saying it was, I'm just saying that (to me) it isn't that important
[10:29] <Macer> like i said earlier.. all of the open drivers are just reversed engineered closed drivers which are sometimes incredibly lacking
[10:29] <Macer> case in point: wifi adapters in linux
[10:29] <Macer> and of course.. gpu acceleration :)
[10:30] <Macer> but companies are quick to market things as being "open" although that isn't much of a buzzword nowadays
[10:31] <Macer> luckily for the world "cloud" is fading away too
[10:31] <Hoerie> perhaps they should say "more open"
[10:31] <Macer> or perhaps they should just not say open at all and tell everybody they're stuck with apis which is how it really winds up anyways
[10:32] <Macer> since you will run into roadblocks left and right with any soc
[10:32] <Macer> through 10 layers of cascading licenses :)
[10:33] <Hoerie> socs aren't really a consumer product yet
[10:33] <Hoerie> so they are always going to be mired in licenses and nda's

[10:39] <davzie> Is it persistant
[10:39] <davzie> For example, if I made my own changes to the OS, installed some debs for example, will that remain forever?
[10:40] <Hoerie> you mean after a powerdown/powerup?
[10:40] <davzie> Yup
[10:40] <Hoerie> I have znc running on mine and it works
[10:40] <Hoerie> you just need to edit config.txt through xbmc I think
[10:41] <davzie> For what reason?
[10:41] <Hoerie> I'm not sure, I just see that in the faq/forum
[10:42] <Hoerie> perhaps just due to the difference between windows/linux line termination
[10:42] <davzie> Hmm okay, but your ZNC installation remains after a power cycle?
[10:42] <Hoerie> yes

[15:51] <Phrewfuf> any ideas, why?
[15:52] <Nolaan> Phrewfuf: Because it needs some priviledges to access hardware
[15:52] <pksato> Phrewfuf: permission, out xbmc user on hw access groups?
[15:52] <Phrewfuf> Nolaan: yeah, i was at this, too, found this article linked at raspbian.org and did everything...problem: there is no such group as input
[15:53] <pksato> use id command and get pi user groups, id pi
[15:53] <davzie> ls -la /dev/ and see what groups are expected
[15:54] <pksato> and put xbmc user to same groups.
[15:54] <Phrewfuf> pksato: i did not use the preinstalled image
[15:54] <Phrewfuf> only users i have are root and phrewfuf..
[15:55] <Phrewfuf> obviously comparing the groups of those is a bad idea since root is only member of the group root...

[16:05] <jmonreal> Hi all !
[16:06] <TomWij> viric: It also yields a difference in memory and doesn't need to perform any lookups; so, yes.
[16:07] <jmonreal> I have a micro sd card sandisk 32GB class 10 sdhc
[16:07] <jmonreal> but it wont boot my raspberrypi

[16:07] <Nolaan> TomWij: At which price, what do you use then?
[16:07] <TomWij> jmonreal: Do you have another one to verify against? Why would you need to update the kernel for that?
[16:08] <TomWij> Nolaan: Gentoo Linux.
[16:09] <Nolaan> you use gentoo for firewall

[16:10] <jmonreal> TomWij: It boots on an sandisk SDCARD class 4. The raspberry forum discussion on a subject similar said with a kernel update it should work bc of the modules loaded
[16:10] <jmonreal> TomWij: It just power but it wont boot, no other led turned on
[16:11] <TomWij> jmonreal: Heh... Sounds like I'll need to switch to next when I get a similar SD card.

[16:17] <TomWij> viric: Was using git 3.7.x on my host but switched to stable 3.6.11 because of the madness with the maintainers on 3.8.x. On Pi I'm on OLD because I want stable support and not something that might still be broken in some occasions.

[16:22] <TomWij> The first link directly tells you what you need in your boot partition from https://github.com/raspberrypi/firmware, whereas the second link does some quicker cloning later on.
[16:23] <schemanen> I can see that it is the /etc/sudoers.tmp that Im edit, is that correct?
[16:23] <TomWij> jmonreal: Oh... Maybe you're not supposed to get a newer kernel, but get newer firmware instead.
[16:23] <TomWij> You can just replace the firmware files on the boot partition then, without affecting the rest of the distro you have already installed.

[16:57] <TomWij> jmonreal: When you change the partitions you sometimes need to reboot before the kernel will read out the new partition scheme.

[17:01] <TomWij> If you change that partition scheme and the kernel is unaware of that change, like you did now using `dd ...`, it won't update the partitions accordingly in /dev/...
[17:02] <TomWij> Hence, you'll need to remove and add the medium again or reboot your box in order for it to catch the change.

[17:16] <linuxstb> No idea, the log just said "java".
[17:16] <BCMM> xbmc uses java???
[17:16] <linuxstb> Or maybe the build system does. People do odd things.

[17:19] <Toothpick> BCMM: right now i don't have x11 installed
[17:19] <BCMM> i'm really failing at IRC today. well, all working XBMC i've seen on the Pi didn't run on X
[17:19] <Toothpick> pksato: what is openmax?
[17:19] <BCMM> and they were specially modified for the Pi
[17:20] * jimerickson (~jimericks@pdpc/supporter/active/jimerickson) has joined #raspberrypi
[17:20] <BCMM> Toothpick: openmax is an API for hardware video decode

[17:20] <Toothpick> BCMM: http://bpaste.net/show/65918/, it says i need java
[17:21] <BCMM> Toothpick: yes, that's unrelated to the openmax point
[17:21] <BCMM> Toothpick: what we mean is, is that just the regular Gentoo XBMC ebuild? i don't think it has Pi support
[17:22] <BCMM> Toothpick: re the java thing, i think they use it for their documentation. try building it with -doc
[17:22] <Toothpick> BCMM: I don't think it will help if it has no RPi support will it?

[17:23] <Toothpick> BCMM: so how do I find a package that supports RPi for gentoo ?
[17:24] <BCMM> Toothpick: i have no idea
[17:24] <BCMM> Toothpick: maybe somebody already did it.
[17:24] <BCMM> maybe you should look at what patches are used for teh debian version and modify the ebuild

[17:26] <BCMM> Toothpick: i mean, does portage have keywords for that architecture?

[17:27] <TomWij> This seems like the same question like last time, I gave you the Java ebuild then.
[17:28] <Toothpick> TomWij: you gave me a hint about hardfp or softfp for java, but I did not know how to use it
[17:28] <Toothpick> TomWij: and something to do with making my own overlay
[17:29] <TomWij> Toothpick: Yes, that was oracle-jdk-0.ebuild in /usr/local/portage/dev-java/oracle-jdk/ and oracle-jdk.env in /usr/local/portage/dev-java/oracle-jdk/files/ and then manifest and install the ebuild.

[17:31] * Mike-N-Go (~Mike-N-Go@ Quit (Quit: Mike-N-Go)

[17:32] <BCMM> talking of XBMC, what's the current sanest way to install it on Raspbian? i'm using the http://archive.mene.za.net/raspbian/ repo at the moment but that build seems to have broken text entry

[17:33] <Phrewfuf> BCMM: i am struggling with that too, it installed fine, but it wont work with my regular user
[17:33] <Phrewfuf> wont work as in: it does not accept keyboard input
[17:34] <BCMM> Phrewfuf: using the same repo? and do you mean text input did work on one of your accounts?
[17:34] <Toothpick> TomWij: where is the manifest?
[17:34] <BCMM> it isn't just a KB issues, you can't even use arrow keys on a remote to navigate the onscreen KB
[17:34] <TomWij> Toothpick: Basically you want your own portage, and the usual approach is then to replicate the folder in a "local" folder to adhere to the FHS (so package managers and what not don't touch it); so, you mimic the /usr/portage by creating your own /usr/local/portage and then you create a category folder within that and in that category folder you create a package folder. Then by changing make.conf with
[17:34] <TomWij> that what I gave you you tell emerge to "overlay" your local portage folder on top of the actual portage folder.
[17:35] <TomWij> Toothpick: You can manifest and merge at once using `ebuild /usr/local/portage/dev-java/oracle-jdk/oracle-jdk-0.ebuild manifest merge`
[17:35] <BCMM> Phrewfuf: of course, that's just built from a Git snapshot so maybe their was an actual breakage there
[17:35] <Phrewfuf> BCMM: what do you mean by text input?
[17:35] <Phrewfuf> if i start it as root i can use xbmc just fine
[17:36] <BCMM> Phrewfuf: i mean when XBMC wants you to type something, like searching youtube or naming a media source
[17:36] <Phrewfuf> if i run as regular user, i can't use arrowkeys
[17:36] * scummos (~sven@p57B19A8A.dip.t-dialin.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[17:36] <Phrewfuf> oh let me try that real quick
[17:36] <BCMM> odd, keyboard generally works fine for me
[17:36] <BCMM> it's just the text entry, and that's broken for remote usage too
[17:36] <BCMM> haven't tried running as root
[17:36] <Phrewfuf> BCMM: how did you get keyboard to work?
[17:37] <BCMM> Phrewfuf: didn't do anything special
[17:37] <Phrewfuf> did oyu add your user to the group "input"
[17:37] <Toothpick> TomWij: that's it ? :)
[17:37] <TomWij> Toothpick: You also don't need to use any special xbmc ebuilds, the official xbmc/xbmc will do just fine, just needs a few attempt to get it through. I can check your configure output / build log for obvious mistakes if you want to. I also have two patches to make audio available in the menus / music as well as to fix the Makefile to not use texturepacker and use the right flags.
[17:38] * alexii (~alexii@ has joined #raspberrypi
[17:38] <BCMM> Phrewfuf: yeah, just cause i was copying the "pi" users's permissions
[17:38] <BCMM> Phrewfuf: it doesn't appear to be a problem with XBMC getting the input; rather, the text entry dialog is broken somehow
[17:38] <TomWij> Toothpick: No, you also need to download the preview and put it in your distfiles folder with the right name.
[17:39] <pksato> Phrewfuf: olny arrow keys dont work? other keys work?
[17:39] <Toothpick> TomWij: the preview from http://jdk8.java.net/fxarmpreview/ ?
[17:39] <TomWij> Toothpick: You can obtain it from the URL in the ebuild (it'll throw the URL at you when you try to emerge).
[17:39] <TomWij> Yes, that one.
[17:39] <BCMM> Phrewfuf: how did you install xbmc? from that repo i mentioned?
[17:39] <Toothpick> TomWij: i have only http://www.java.net/download/JavaFXarm/jdk-8-ea-b36e-linux-arm-hflt-29_nov_2012.tar.gz
[17:40] <TomWij> Toothpick: That should be the one, you'll need to rename the file name.
[17:40] <Toothpick> TomWij: ok, thank you very much
[17:40] <Toothpick> so far so good
[17:40] <TomWij> Note the ebuild is juist a quick fix and tries to mimic the way other Java packages are installed on Gentoo, it's not supposed to do more than that. :D
[17:41] <scummos> ._.
[17:41] <scummos> I tried to build an antenna for 408 MHz
[17:41] <Toothpick> TomWij: it sounded more complicated than it is
[17:41] <scummos> this is the result (the red line) http://i.imgur.com/zAXo5.png
[17:41] <scummos> I'd say I missed my design goal by a bit :D
[17:41] <TomWij> That file name in't exactly easy to automate, and since it's a preview it's most likely just temporary too; I suppose better ebuilds will arise once hard float support gets out of preview.
[17:41] <Toothpick> TomWij: right now i must go and i'll be back in a few hours. thanks very much !
[17:41] <scummos> measurement controlled by the raspberry pi!
[17:42] <TomWij> Toothpick: Good, ping me when you need me to verify something (configure output for instance) or want the patches.
[17:42] <scummos> (it's not very accurate tough, it needs a lot of corrections, but very roughly it should be the response pattern of the antenna)

[18:02] <BCMM> Phrewfuf: btw, "remote control sends keyboard presses" makes the arrow keys available for the onscreen keyboard
[18:02] <BCMM> i think it's intended to prevent only the local keyboard's arrow keys from working with the onscreen kb but it seems to block networked remotes too
[18:03] <BCMM> also, i only need to have "allow programs on *this machine* to control xbmc" (my emphasis) to remote-control it using my phone...

[18:17] <Phrewfuf> hehe perkele
[18:17] <scummos> oh btw, report: draining 200mA from the 3.3V pins works okay, but RG2 heats up pretty quickly.
[18:17] <Perkele> really? wow, didn't expect that. thanks
[18:17] <scummos> so if you only do it for a few seconds it's fine
[18:17] <morsik> i'm just downloading raspbian, and it's +400M zip file
[18:17] <Perkele> morsik: the debian img, i was talking about the arch one
[18:17] <scummos> 0.5s on then 0.5s off also works fine without making RG2 hot.
[18:17] <gordonDrogon> scummos, then the Pi will reboot shortly after that...
[18:18] <morsik> Perkele: i know, but it's not 2G too ;P
[18:18] <morsik> so there must be reason.
[18:18] <gordonDrogon> scummos, how many pins were you driving?
[18:18] <TomWij> BCMM: Hmm, haven't tried that. Does it work as root? The only thing I know is that you can't attach hardware after you've started XBMC.
[18:18] <Perkele> morsik: gordonDrogon said its almost 2gb after decompressing
[18:18] <TomWij> You could try to enable debug logging to see which part of it fails.
[18:18] <gordonDrogon> not sure about Arch at all - I only use Raspbian.
[18:18] <scummos> gordonDrogon: not from the logic pins, from the +3.3V output.
[18:19] <scummos> the logic pins I only draw ~1mA each
[18:19] <gordonDrogon> scummos, ah, ok. yes, that's right on what's spare there - although I seem to recall they only suggested 50mA max at one point...
[18:19] <BCMM> TomWij: it works as root, yes
[18:19] <Perkele> well might as well by a 16gb card then anyway
[18:19] <BCMM> Phrewfuf: that did not work.
[18:19] <Perkele> i had a 512mb sitting around might i guess that won't do it
[18:19] <Phrewfuf> BCMM: what did not work?
[18:19] <BCMM> and actually shouldn't work because if the user is logged in to the tty they already own it
[18:19] <scummos> gordonDrogon: yeah, 50mA max is the official figure. but it's really what RG2 provides minus what the pi needs, so usually more than that, especially if you're not using e.g. HDMI

[18:22] * Gadget-Mac (~swp@ has joined #raspberrypi
[18:22] * Gadget-Mac (~swp@ Quit (Client Quit)
[18:22] <BCMM> just looking at /proc/ here
[18:22] <BCMM> XBMC *does* open a TTY, in addition to standard io
[18:22] <TomWij> `dmesg | grep -i input` will reveal you the numbers, then you can match them up in /dev/input.
[18:23] <Amadiro> you can just do an ioctl on devices in /dev/input to retrieve their name
[18:23] <Amadiro> you'll get back something like "Dell QuietKey Keyboard"
[18:23] <BCMM> for example, this root xbmc session run from ssh has opened tty0 even though its terminal is pts/3
[18:23] * Yachtsman (~Yachtsman@ has joined #raspberrypi
[18:24] <Phrewfuf> Amadiro: yes
[18:24] <Phrewfuf> and i figured out it is linked to /dev/input/event0
[18:24] <Phrewfuf> which i gave my user permissions to, but it still won't work
[18:24] <BCMM> Phrewfuf: i've got *something* here
[18:24] <Amadiro> yes, /dev/input/event0 is usually the keyboard
[18:24] <Amadiro> although if you plug in the mouse first, it might end up being the mouse
[18:24] <BCMM> just comparing contents of /proc/`pidof xbmc.bin`/fd for root and user sessions
[18:25] <Amadiro> Phrewfuf, what doesn't work?
[18:25] <Phrewfuf> Amadiro: funny thing is, there are two devices linked to event0#
[18:25] <Phrewfuf> Amadiro: no navigation in xbmc
[18:25] <Phrewfuf> on raspbian#
[18:25] <BCMM> ah disregard taht i can't read apparently.
[18:25] <Amadiro> Phrewfuf, do you know for sure that xbmc uses the evdev protocol?
[18:25] <Phrewfuf> Amadiro: nope
[18:25] <Phrewfuf> #it works when executed as root
[18:25] <Amadiro> then it might not even look at the /dev/input stuff
[18:26] <Phrewfuf> it does not when executed as nonroot
[18:26] <Phrewfuf> though the blogpost said "add your user to the input group"
[18:26] <Phrewfuf> which sadly didn't exist at all
[18:26] <Amadiro> I guess you can try to run xbmc and do an `lsof /dev/input/event0`

[18:27] <Phrewfuf> yes

[18:28] <Amadiro> what's BCMM?

[18:28] <BCMM> Amadiro: hi.
[18:28] <Amadiro> ah.
[18:29] <mikey_w> Is there an image for android 4 for the pi available?
[18:29] <Amadiro> check out his udev rules, then
[18:29] <Amadiro> BCMM, do you have X?
[18:29] <BCMM> Amadiro: yeah but not running
[18:29] <Phrewfuf> BCMM: did you use the image or the installer .zip?
[18:30] <Phrewfuf> for raspbian, that is
[18:30] <Amadiro> Check out if there are any evdev related rules in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/
[18:31] <BCMM> Phrewfuf: stock Foundation image
[18:31] <Amadiro> or /etc/udev/rules.d/
[18:31] <Phrewfuf> BCMM: meh -.-
[18:31] <Phrewfuf> i used the installer
[18:32] <BCMM> Phrewfuf: ok; when starting XBMC over ssh
[18:32] <BCMM> if it's root, it opens tty0
[18:33] <Phrewfuf> Amadiro: there is a single rule name=eth0 or something like that
[18:33] <Amadiro> BCMM might have some that you are missing
[18:33] <Phrewfuf> BCMM: check your rules! :D
[18:33] <TomWij> Amadiro: XBMC doesn't use X
[18:34] <BCMM> which rules?
[18:34] <Amadiro> I know.
[18:34] <Amadiro> well, it can use X
[18:34] <Amadiro> it doesn't really care
[18:34] <Phrewfuf> TomWij: xbmc-standalone doesn't use rules, or not?
[18:34] <Phrewfuf> isn't there "regular" xbmc which uses x?
[18:34] <TomWij> Amadiro: Yes, but X isn't accelerated so there's no benefit to it.
[18:34] <Amadiro> not on the pi, no
[18:35] <TomWij> Dunno how it affects the actual rendering, but it could be seen as an overhead.
[18:35] <Amadiro> BCMM, in /etc/udev/rules.d/ or in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/
[18:35] <BCMM> Phrewfuf: got it working!
[18:35] <Phrewfuf> BCMM: the rules in /etc/udev/rules.d/
[18:35] <BCMM> only by stupid hackery though
[18:35] <Amadiro> TomWij, it doesn't work at all
[18:35] <Phrewfuf> what? how?#
[18:35] <TomWij> So, /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d is irrelevant here; udev might be more relevant
[18:35] <BCMM> Phrewfuf: i chowned /dev/tty0 to the user running XBMC before starting it
[18:35] <Amadiro> TomWij, there might still be relevant rules in there

[18:40] <TomWij> bootcode.bin, loader.bin and start.elf are the relevant ones to update; the armXXX_start.elf ones are the old style files to start with a certain amount of memory but that got deprecated in favour of the setting in config.txt so you probably don't need these armXXX_start.elf files anymore.
[18:40] <BCMM> Phrewfuf: ok i'm back. i haven't analysed what it does when it's run from a VT because i'm here on IRC not downstairs, but:
[18:40] <Amadiro> TomWij, nah, I'm pretty sure there's currently no way to obtain an opengl rendering context through X11
[18:41] <BCMM> Phrewfuf: when run from ssh, XBMC tries to open tty0 to capture keyboard input, and fails if it isn't root
[18:41] * DexterLB (~angel@87-126-19-80.btc-net.bg) has joined #raspberrypi
[18:42] <TomWij> Amadiro: Doesn't have to be through X11, but you can get a context.
[18:43] <Amadiro> TomWij, yes, but we were talking about X11.
[18:43] <Phrewfuf> BCMM: wait xbmc _wants_ to have root?
[18:43] <TomWij> Yes, there's still a world of difference between running inside X11 and running through X11.
[18:43] <Phrewfuf> or does it want to have tty0
[18:43] <Amadiro> it's more like "running over X11"
[18:43] <Amadiro> it doesn't even see your context/window
[18:43] <BCMM> Phrewfuf: well, it wants a tty and it doesn't have one when run from ssh
[18:44] <BCMM> i don't understand why it doesn't use its own tty when it's run from a VT though

[18:49] <TomWij> I'm fine with it as long as it doesn't use that in standby (aka 24/7 when nobody's watching it), you can configure it to suspend when you do; but maybe I will try to run it to a profiler one day to see if there's something that can be done about it.

[18:52] * dreamon (~dreamon@unaffiliated/dreamon) has joined #raspberrypi
[18:52] <Amadiro> the force hdmi option forces HDMI to be always-on and the SDTV to be always-off, not sure if that would fix your problem, though
[18:52] <TomWij> BCMM: TTY's start counting from zero.
[18:52] <BCMM> TomWij: not accessible ones
[18:52] <TomWij> Unless you've got it set differently in /etc/inittab
[18:52] <Phrewfuf> TomWij: oh i had that also. connected my screen via hdmi-dvi cable, powered up the pi and then turned on the screen
[18:52] <BCMM> maybe just cause i have no F0 key :)
[18:53] * jimerickson (~jimericks@pdpc/supporter/active/jimerickson) has joined #raspberrypi
[18:53] <BCMM> TomWij: i mean, gettys typically run on TTYs 1-6
[18:54] <jmonreal> TomWij: OK, so I only need to update those files and delete the armXXX_start.elf ?
[18:54] <TomWij> BCMM: YMMV, depends on your inittab and thus on your distro
[18:54] <Phrewfuf> uhm...
[18:55] <Phrewfuf> if i have 3 tty's open, then everyone of them needs a udev process, right?
[18:55] <TomWij> BCMM: As for the RPi, I suppose the firmware uses tty0 by default and that it might not correctly set the current tty.
[18:55] <Phrewfuf> because i have exactly 3 udevd --daemon processes running right here...as root -.-
[18:55] <jmonreal> TomWij: Now I have downloaded the git branch, where do I find this files? Do I need to compile them? or just copy them?
[18:56] <TomWij> jmonreal: boot folder I think
[18:57] <jmonreal> TomWij: arch/arm/boot?
[18:57] <TomWij> Phrewfuf: I have one parent and two children and the exact same on my host, I don't think it matches the amount of TTYs though. I don't even see how that would relate to each other.
[18:57] <Phrewfuf> TomWij: well doesn
[18:57] <Phrewfuf> -.-
[18:57] <TomWij> jmonreal: Erm... which git branch did you download? /linux is the kernel and /firmware is the firmware
[18:58] <Phrewfuf> doesn't every user need a udev to be able to use devices?
[18:58] <jmonreal> ouch!
[18:58] <jmonreal> TomWij: My bad
[18:58] <TomWij> Phrewfuf: Seems we need this setting: hdmi_force_hotplug=1 Use HDMI mode even if no HDMI monitor is detected

[18:59] <Toothpick> TomWij: I'm not sure what I really did as I always install packages using emerge ... hehe
[19:00] <TomWij> Phrewfuf: Full list of what you could do at http://elinux.org/RPiconfig, typical ones are overclocking (learn how to not void your warranty, don't go too far with it) / hdmi (like the one I did now) / overscan (if you have black borders around it)
[19:00] <TomWij> Just don't play around with them too much, only do those you really need. :D
[19:01] <TomWij> Toothpick: `emerge ...` basically calls `ebuild /path/to/some.ebuild merge` or something really close to that when it merges the package.
[19:01] <TomWij> (Or it calls the actual bash function underneath doing that)
[19:01] <Toothpick> TomWij: aha... so in what path should I run the ./configure then?
[19:02] <TomWij> Toothpick: You'd want an ebuild do that all for you, do you want me to share mine?
[19:02] <Phrewfuf> TomWij: i think i will avoid overclocking right there :D
[19:02] <Phrewfuf> though i could cut a hole in my case and glue a bigass heatsink on IC2
[19:02] <TomWij> Phrewfuf: Yeah, only do it when you want slightly more. I went for "medium" as it only overvolts for 2, the overvolt with 6 looks like it wuld cut the lifetime a lot though.
[19:03] <BCMM> Phrewfuf, TomWij: been looking some things up since i'm unfamiliar with ttys. tty0 is basically an alias to teh current tty, that privileged processes can use to ensure the user sees something (e.g. init script output)
[19:03] <BCMM> XBMC probably shouldn't be using it like that
[19:03] <Phrewfuf> BCMM: i also am in ##linux ;)
[19:03] <Toothpick> TomWij: you mean ./configure, make, make install?
[19:03] <BCMM> Phrewfuf: heh, sorry
[19:03] <TomWij> BCMM, oh, that explains why `echo "..." > /dev/tty0` always works for me :P
[19:03] <Phrewfuf> TomWij: m(
[19:03] <BCMM> Phrewfuf: also nobody there understood and google helped me
[19:04] <BCMM> seems to me that if xbmc just opened its own controlling terminal everything would be fine
[19:04] <TomWij> Toothpick: There's also a bootstrap file.
[19:04] <Phrewfuf> BCMM: so it needs its own tty?

[19:14] <DDave> is it normal that all the LEDS are on & nothing is blinking? My rpi isnt responding today (was just fine yesterday)

[19:15] <IT_Sean> goesinta = goes in ta = where the sound goesinta. I.e. there is no audio IN port.
[19:15] <Toothpick> TomWij: http://bpaste.net/show/66944/
[19:15] <Phrewfuf> Bunny_: i think he means "there is no input jack"
[19:15] <Bunny_> IT_Sean: I know
[19:16] <Bunny_> that is why I want a USB sound card
[19:16] <IT_Sean> Ah, okay. Just wanted to make sure you knew. I didn't see you mention a USB soiundcard earlier, i guess. :p
[19:16] <Bunny_> and it doesn't need to be quality sound
[19:16] <Bunny_> I wouldn't care if the sound card costs ??2 as long as it can record my radios.
[19:16] <TomWij> Toothpick: /opt/oracle-jdk-0/bin/java it's in place so that's already okay, hmm..
[19:17] <Bunny_> just curious as to if tape out will blow the sound card tho
[19:17] <Bunny_> I am aware tape out should be plugged into a line in port
[19:17] <TomWij> Toothpick: /var/tmp/portage/dev-java/oracle-jdk-0/temp/environment: line 1680: java-config-2: command not found
[19:17] <IT_Sean> Most USB sound card inputs let you switch between MIC level and LINE level.
[19:17] <Bunny_> oh :o
[19:17] <BCMM> Phrewfuf: man 4 tty seems to be on my side here, rather than debian's...
[19:17] <Toothpick> TomWij: Yea i noticed that
[19:17] <Bunny_> including the sound blaster 24bit?
[19:18] <IT_Sean> I have one that does, anyway.
[19:18] <TomWij> Toothpick: Ah, it didn't pull in the virtual things.
[19:18] <IT_Sean> Bunny_: no idea about that one.
[19:18] <Bunny_> okies
[19:18] <Bunny_> Phrewfuf: Do u know about this?
[19:18] <pksato> or have sepparte input to line and mic levels.

[19:19] <TomWij> Toothpick: Sorry, completely forgot that the virtuals are necessary for this to succeed; so, you'll want to mimic them and add the package, then manifest all the ebuilds and emerge the package again (which will pull in the virtuals and proceed poperly).

[19:22] <TomWij> Honestly, they should make the Java dependency optional.
[19:22] <Phrewfuf> Bunny_: hm, no, haven
[19:22] <Phrewfuf> haven't tried that with the SB
[19:23] <TomWij> Toothpick: Yes, but please just manifest them and then let `emerge oracle-jdk` do the whole thing.
[19:23] <Phrewfuf> btw Amadiro youtube plugin works fine(tm)
[19:23] <Toothpick> TomWij: how do i just manifest them?
[19:23] <Amadiro> Phrewfuf, can you log in?
[19:23] <jmonreal> TomWij: And with those files you told me that should be enough ? they dont depend on the kernel?
[19:23] <Phrewfuf> it does need a load of cputime

[19:23] <Phrewfuf> ah, no login didn't work yet, it didn't accept my google credentials
[19:23] <IT_Sean> Bunny_: i have an iMic. It's the only USB sound device i've used. It has a switch on it to switch bettween MIC and LINE level input. I am not familiar with the one you mentioned though.
[19:24] <TomWij> Toothpick: So, copy them then add dev-java/oracle-jdk as a dependency to them (you'll see the others in there, just add it as a line, then manifest them with `ebuild /path/to.ebuild manifest`.
[19:24] <TomWij> jmonreal: No, the other way around, the kernel depends on the firmware.
[19:24] <Amadiro> Phrewfuf, for me, logging in did not work; playing videos crashes after 5 minutes (fairly reliably) and pausing videos makes xbmc crash
[19:25] <Phrewfuf> hm, let me try that out
[19:25] <Bunny_> IT_Sean: Does it work on the raspberry or could you please test it? I don't want to have to order one to find out if it works or not.
[19:26] <IT_Sean> Bunny_: Send me a raspi, and i'll test it. :p
[19:26] <IT_Sean> Sorry, i haven't got a Pi.

[19:31] <Phrewfuf> something about "could not find video url"
[19:32] <Amadiro> Phrewfuf, yeah, it's pretty much totally broken.
[19:32] <|thunder> that probably means your not supposed to download it

[19:33] <megaproxy> if i want to power via solar, what do i need to look out for in the panel?
[19:33] <Bunny_> heyy megaproxy :3
[19:33] <megaproxy> o/
[19:33] <IT_Sean> Bunny_: I do, but i'm at work, and kinda busy at the mo.
[19:34] <Amadiro> Phrewfuf, for me, the built-in search also sometimes failed to find things that the website search definitely showed.
[19:34] <Phrewfuf> megaproxy: you need a buttload of power, a good charger and a battery
[19:34] <Bunny_> okies
[19:34] <IT_Sean> Sorry.
[19:34] <megaproxy> Phrewfuf, high wattage?
[19:34] <Bunny_> it's okies
[19:34] <Phrewfuf> megaproxy: if you want to power just the rpi, 5V 2A (10W) is enough
[19:34] <megaproxy> would have wifi too maybe
[19:35] <Phrewfuf> rpi with USB stuff is about 2A
[19:35] <Phrewfuf> AFAIR
[19:35] <Bunny_> Phrewfuf: Huh?
[19:35] <Bunny_> I'm fine with the default power supply
[19:35] <Bunny_> that comes with the rpi
[19:35] <Phrewfuf> i remember the recommended power supply to be 2A capable
[19:36] <Phrewfuf> if you drive two high power usb devices you already need 1A just for the USB stuff
[19:36] <Amadiro> Bunny_, the rpi isn't normally shipped with a power supply -- if you got one, that was probably an extra your vendor gave you.
[19:36] <chithead> there is no use getting a power supply for more than 700mA because that is the rating of the input fuse

[19:37] <chithead> had*
[19:37] <Phrewfuf> so you want to say thr rpi is not meeting the USB standard?
[19:38] <chithead> correct. it does not accept standard input voltage and it does not output standard current
[19:38] <Amadiro> Phrewfuf, the USB standard doesn't technically *require* you to be able to drive 500mA devices
[19:38] <Amadiro> the host controller may deny those devices
[19:38] * Belaf (~campedel@net-93-144-31-127.cust.dsl.teletu.it) has joined #raspberrypi
[19:38] <Amadiro> however, the rpi usb host controller is not smart like that.
[19:38] <Amadiro> so it accepts them anyway and then just dies.

[19:40] <Amadiro> chithead, I don't think a hub would do the decision for the host whether to accept or deny a function
[19:40] <megaproxy> that is modular, and built for rpi clusters/colocation

[20:31] <macbeth99> Hey, I heard there is a "turbo" mode for the RPi that automatically overclocks and overvolts without voiding the warranty. Does anyone know how to turn it on, or is it already on? I googled a lot, but couldn't find any instructions.

[20:32] <sundancer> i have IPv6 RA on my network segment where raspberry pi is connected.. is there a way to detect which IPv6 address raspberry pi took and register that to DNS ?
[20:32] <TAFB_ext4> macbeth99: yeppers, don't do it in raspi-config!

[20:32] <TAFB_ext4> TechDesk: if it's not listed, it's not supported ;) lol. I just tell people that
[20:32] <TAFB_ext4> .
[20:32] <sundancer> because IPv6 addresses are randomly assigned each reboot

[20:32] <TechDesk> hum :(
[20:32] * Leeky_afk is now known as Leeky
[20:33] <Olipro> use DHCPv6 if you want to do stateful address assignment
[20:33] <Dagger2> sundancer: the SLAAC address comes from your MAC address, it should be the same each reboot provided your MAC stays the same
[20:33] <Olipro> you will however need a userspace client on the Raspberry Pi
[20:33] <macbeth99> TAFB_ext4: do you know how to do it from config.txt?

[20:37] <IT_Sean> Exactly.
[20:37] <TAFB_ext4> good stuff :)
[20:38] <IT_Sean> Aye.
[20:38] <IT_Sean> It's good fun voiding warranties.

[20:39] <TAFB_ext4> it's a freaky chart.
[20:40] <Phrewfuf> so...it may seem like a crappy fashion choice, but it is not and it looks like crap :D
[20:40] <Phrewfuf> how can i make those black bars black again?
[20:41] <|thunder> are you using xbmc ?

[20:48] <SpeedEvil> (in the UK)
[20:49] <SpeedEvil> be void
[20:49] <Amadiro> macbeth99, it should be longer than that.
[20:49] <TAFB_ext4> warranty is ONLY void if the revision warranty "bad" flag is set (abuse).
[20:49] <Amadiro> mine is 1000002, for instance.

[20:58] <mrlinux222> Hello community, I want to create a XBMC like everyone else does. Anyone know of a list of usb tv tuners work with the raspberry pi? I am looking to buy the tv tuner from ebay or amazon.
[20:59] * hepukt4e (~hep@ Quit ()
[21:00] <zleap> why do you need a tv tuner
[21:01] <zleap> if the tvf has hdmi input plug that in to the tv, tv gets singnal in normal way, use the pi to provide smart tv features and hook pi up to the inernet
[21:01] <zleap> assuming thats how this works of course
[21:01] <mrlinux222> I would like to set up a PVR so a tv tuner would be required to get cable from my coaxial cable
[21:01] <zleap> you may be able to save to usb
[21:01] <cheezymuffins> i think you might have the wrong computer for that
[21:02] <cheezymuffins> i think most people use their rpi for watching their pirated videos
[21:02] <cheezymuffins> on a tv
[21:03] <cheezymuffins> plus i dought anyone has written ARMv6 drivers for any tv tuner
[21:03] <mrlinux222> I have found many tutorials online about how to get the raspberry pi working with XBMC using a usb tv tuner, but on every one of the tutorials they do not mention a usb tuner that works. they simply say "usb tv tuner" but do not mention a specific one
[21:03] <zleap> hmm
[21:03] <Triskelios> cheezymuffins: drivers aren't CPU-specific
[21:04] <Triskelios> or architecture-specific for the most part
[21:04] <Amadiro> indeed, any tuner that works under linux in general should work with the rpi as well.
[21:04] <cheezymuffins> well in that case i would find a nice one. I bought a cheap $20 tv tuner and i only get like 4 channels
[21:04] <mrlinux222> That is why I am trying to find one that would work. Of course like any piece of hardware out there, they only say "compatible with win 7, vista" so I never know if it will work with Linux let alone Pi
[21:05] <Amadiro> mrlinux222, well, googling something like "usb tv tuner for linux" or so should get you quite some results.
[21:05] <mrlinux222> I have used PCI cards succesfully in the past, but USB is much harder to find

[21:05] * eephillip (~eephillip@pdpc/supporter/student/eephillip) has joined #raspberrypi
[21:06] <Triskelios> my main concern with your idea is whether a RPi would have enough computrons to handle video capture over USB while also recording to some other destination (presumably over the Ethernet interface)
[21:07] <mrlinux222> I was hoping to save my recorded content to an external HD
[21:07] <Amadiro> as long as you don't also want to simultaneously play it, there should be no issue
[21:07] <Amadiro> if you want to simultaneously play it, you'll need to find some player that can feed the stream into the VC
[21:08] <mrlinux222> http://linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/DVB-T_USB_Devices <<< shows a great list of devices that should do well. Now my concern that Triskelios brought up, is computing. Will the rpi handle it?
[21:08] <Amadiro> I don't know if omxplayer & friends do that

[21:43] <Hopsy> make ARCH=armv6l CROSS_COMPILE= -C /lib/modules/3.2.27+/build M=/home/pi/Desktop/rtl8192CU_8188CU_linux_v2.0.939.20100726/driver/rtl8192CU_linux_v2.0.939.20100726 modules
[21:43] <rikkib> /etc/init.d
[21:43] <Hopsy> what is
[21:43] <millerii> facking typos
[21:43] <TAFB_ext4> on my arch it uses systemd. it's horrible. gimme rc.local back!
[21:43] <pksato> AUTOSTART="profile_to_be_server" or AUTOSTART="profile_to_be_a_client"

[21:44] <rikkib> rc.local is for commands rather than starting daemons and the like (services).
[21:44] <Hopsy> this is the error: make: *** /lib/modules/3.2.27+/build: No such file or directory. Stop.

[21:45] <Hopsy> should I create one :p
[21:45] <TAFB_ext4> hehe. I use to use rc.local for everything, never ending looping .sh scripts, the works! :)
[21:45] <timmmaaaayyy> i think i want to use rc.local. saying 'service openvpn start' doesn't do anything. but saying 'openvpn /etc/openvpn/raspi.ovpn' works perfectly
[21:45] <TAFB_ext4> pksato: did you see my newest chart? EXT3 vs EXT4 with tweaked fstab and write journal caching enabled?!?! :)
[21:45] <pksato> timmmaaaayyy: conf need to stay on correct file to init.d start
[21:46] <rikkib> timmmaaaayyy, No

[21:50] <Hopsy> I am getting a stupig error
[21:50] <rikkib> There are several mechanisms to start things at boot
[21:50] <pksato> Hopsy: just plug the dongle. and make wpa_supplicant files
[21:50] <pksato> ou wpa_ options on interfaces
[21:51] <rikkib> It may be as simple as editing a line in a file in the /etc/default dir or creating your own startup script in /etc/init.d

[22:05] <atouk> so 0x00 = 00h
[22:06] <atouk> 0x00 for the zilog Z80 is the NOP command, and for the intel family 0x80 is the NOP command
[22:06] <IT_Sean> wow.
[22:07] <atouk> NOP = No Operation. meaning a processor command that does nothing
[22:07] <IT_Sean> ... you are an incredibly massive dork for knowing that. :p
[22:07] <gordonDrogon> I know several 6502 opcodes ...
[22:07] <IT_Sean> gordonDrogon: so? we KNEW you were a dork. :p
[22:07] <gordonDrogon> sad, but I've written kilobytes and kilobytes of 6502 assembler...
[22:07] <gordonDrogon> I prefer the term 'geek' ..
[22:07] <IT_Sean> sorry.
[22:07] <xacobe97> what revision number is 000f? :/
[22:08] <gordonDrogon> it's a rev 2 Pi.
[22:08] <Phrewfuf> weren't dorks those who just act like geeks, but aren't?
[22:08] <IT_Sean> Fine, you can be a geek. But atouk is still a dork.
[22:08] <gordonDrogon> :)
[22:08] <IT_Sean> Phrewfuf: no. There is an entire pecking order.
[22:08] <atouk> anyone that has written ANYTHING in assemeby (reguardless of family) deserves a hat tip

[22:09] <IT_Sean> actually, all three get beaten up by the schoolyard bully, come to think of it, :p
[22:09] <gordonDrogon> 0x00 is BRK in 6502. causes a software trap.
[22:09] <Phrewfuf> It's a trap!
[22:09] <IT_Sean> But, as far as the three go... It's geeks who beat up nerds who beat up dorks.
[22:09] <Phrewfuf> what are dorks then ??
[22:09] <Phrewfuf> ??o
[22:09] <gordonDrogon> Geeks get the girls (or boys if that's their thing!)
[22:09] <IT_Sean> dorks are the kids that get picked on by nerds.
[22:10] <IT_Sean> I just said that!
[22:10] <IT_Sean> were you not listening!?
[22:10] <Phrewfuf> IT_Sean: /434 (as in http://ragefac.es/434

[22:16] <gordonDrogon> IT_Sean, might as well be - my wifes just gone on holiday...
[22:17] <viric> gordonDrogon: are cgroups used in raspbian?
[22:17] <IT_Sean> oooooh! TMI! TMI!
[22:17] <gordonDrogon> viric, I think they're just enabled in all modern kernels, but I've no idea how they actually work - I thought they needed some sort of userland uspport - e.g. from a window manager to make the interactive stuff fast...
[22:18] <gordonDrogon> TMI?
[22:18] <Phrewfuf> Too much information
[22:18] <atouk> never even looked. IS there an asm package that works on the pi?
[22:18] <viric> gordonDrogon: systemd uses a cgroup per login session. But I don't think raspbian does things like that
[22:18] <gordonDrogon> atouk, 'as'
[22:19] <viric> For two processes launched in the same session, nice should work
[22:19] <viric> raspbian even hasn't the cgroups mounted.
[22:20] <Amadiro> atouk, rpi is ARM, which is an extremely common architecture nowadays -- so yes, there are assemblers for it :)

[22:43] <Toothpick> lol
[22:43] <TomWij> So, how's the XBMC compilation going?
[22:43] <TomWij> Or is the JDK still broken?
[22:43] <Toothpick> wow, mine is 24 hours back hehe
[22:43] <Toothpick> TomWij: i had a problem of making virtual/jre and virtual/jdk a dependency of oracle-jdk
[22:44] <Toothpick> TomWij: let me tell you how i did it
[22:44] <TomWij> But you did solve it?
[22:44] <Toothpick> no
[22:45] <Toothpick> TomWij: i edited the last version of each package (virtual/{jre,jdk})'s ebuild and added as a RDEPEND"=dev-java/oracle-jdk-0*"
[22:45] <Toothpick> then updated the manifest
[22:45] <gordonDrogon> someone was asking me about vncserver on the Pi the other day... /ponders/ just rememberd it as I've just run it up to run pistore with...
[22:46] <gordonDrogon> Hopsy, ? (vncserver - were you asking how I did it?)
[22:46] <Toothpick> TomWij: then added virtual/{jre,jdk} as a DEPEND to dev-java/oracle-jdk's ebuild
[22:46] <Hopsy> yes yesterday
[22:46] <Toothpick> TomWij: and still had the same problem
[22:46] <Hopsy> you did connect from linux to linux
[22:47] <Hopsy> what tool did you used?
[22:47] <Hopsy> to view the vncserver
[22:47] <gordonDrogon> I run vncserver on the Pi, then vncviewer pi1:1 on my Linux desktop
[22:47] <Hopsy> to connect to the vncserver *
[22:47] <gordonDrogon> pi1 is it's ip/name
[22:47] <TomWij> Toothpick: No, that makes a circular dependency. Normally the XBMC ebuild would depend on the virtual, and that virtual would pull in the oracle-jdk.

[22:48] <Hopsy> segmentationfault
[22:49] <gordonDrogon> you're running viewer on the Pi? Does that Pi have a local screen & keyboard?
[22:49] <Hopsy> I am using tightvnc
[22:50] <Hopsy> uhm, yes I can do that
[22:50] <gordonDrogon> tightvncserver on the Pi, and xtightvncviewer on the desktop.
[22:50] <TomWij> Toothpick: The virtuals mean "any of these", XBMC wants any java so it depends on virtual/jre, virtual/jre on its own depends on virtual/jdk and virtual/jdk depends on oracle-jdk. Now, when you have oracle-jdk that would satisfy as a good Java version for XBMC.
[22:50] <gordonDrogon> they are both tightvnc.
[22:51] <TomWij> Toothpick: As for java-config-2, I was wrong, you should have dev-java/java-config installed for that.
[22:51] <TomWij> It should have been a DEPEND for the oracle-jdk package.
[22:51] <Toothpick> TomWij: so i have to delete the virtual/jdk \ jre folder?
[22:51] <Hopsy> gordonDrogon: keep in mind that I use rpi to windows
[22:52] <Hopsy> butt that wouldnt matter i think?
[22:52] <gordonDrogon> Hopsy, no idea. your trying to view one Pi on another?
[22:52] * Alfihar (~Yuuka@siberios.co.uk) Quit (Quit: Computer has gone to sleep.)
[22:52] <Hopsy> I am trying to view my windows pc, using pi
[22:53] <gordonDrogon> oh.
[22:53] <TomWij> So, I was wrong for two things: 1) You don't need virtual/jre necessarily as virtual/jdk will do; although the rest stays the same, you will want XBMC to depend on virtual/jdk and virtual/jdk to depend on your XBMC. 2) For the oracle-jdk install to succeed, you need to add DEPEND="dev-java/java-config" to its ebuild, manifest it again and _emerge_ (not ebuild) oracle-jdk again.
[22:53] <TomWij> Toothpick: No, see above ^
[22:53] <gordonDrogon> well, er... good luck :)
[22:53] <Hopsy> haha :(
[22:53] <gordonDrogon> I've never tried that. might be issues with colour depth? Pi only 16-bit?
[22:53] <TomWij> Toothpick: Oops, small correction, "virtual/jdk to depend on your oracle-jdk, not XBMC".
[22:53] <Hopsy> can you try it, pleaassee
[22:54] <Hopsy> when you have some time
[22:54] <TomWij> Toothpick: On my RPi I already had the java-config by trying other packages, hence I didn't notice the missing dependency. :S
[22:54] <TomWij> (I assumed the virtual did that, but it did not)
[22:54] * confusid (~confusid@static-71-178-222-34.washdc.fios.verizon.net) has left #raspberrypi
[22:55] <Toothpick> TomWij: so i'll delete the virtual/jdk \ jre folder from the /usr/local/portage anyway
[22:55] <Toothpick> first thing
[22:55] * IT_Sean (~sean@applefritter/IRCStaff/UltimateMacUser1) Quit (Quit: off)
[22:55] <TomWij> Toothpick: Since you manually compile XBMC, you can get rid of the virtuals and just add DEPEND="dev-java/java-config" to oracle-jdk and remanifest/re-emerge.

[22:56] <Toothpick> TomWij: no, i emerge XBMC, I do not compile it manually
[22:56] <TomWij> (Though the clean Gentoo way is to use an ebuild, also advisable since you can then repeat a compile later on if you want to change how it's comipled)
[22:56] <gordonDrogon> Hopsy, I'd need a windows PC first...
[22:57] <Hopsy> I mean from pi to linux
[22:57] <gordonDrogon> pi is linux.
[22:57] <TomWij> Toothpick: Oh, in that case: 1) Delete virtual/jre. 2) Make the following dependencies: XBMC depends on virtual/jdk depends on den-java/oracle-jdk depends on dev-java/java-config (each one depends on the next)
[22:57] <gordonDrogon> that's what I'm doing right now - run server on Pi, run viewer on Desktop linux.

[22:59] <gordonDrogon> http://unicorn.drogon.net/screen.png
[23:00] <TomWij> Toothpick: Yes, you'll want a /usr/local/portage/media-tv/xbmc/ with the ebuild copied in as well as the files folder.
[23:00] <Toothpick> cp /usr/portage/media-tv/xbmc/ /usr/local/portage/media-tv/xbmc << correction
[23:00] <gordonDrogon> wonder if I can view another Pi inside that Pi running to my desktop...

[23:01] <Toothpick> TomWij: thank you for taking your time with me, i am completely new at messing with ebuilds :)
[23:01] <TomWij> Toothpick: You'll want to adjust the configure phase as well, since it misses the Raspberry Pi specific target and settings.

[23:05] <Toothpick> TomWij: i followed everything you said but making "virtual/jdk depends on den-java/oracle-jdk"
[23:05] <Toothpick> TomWij: is it already depending on oracle-jdk? if not should i modify its ebuild ?
[23:05] <TomWij> Toothpick: ^ Above are the important bits of what I have, if you want alsa and pulse I have a patch to make XBMC support them for Raspberry Pi. Similarly, to get the FLAGS really working and to get rid in a better way of the TexturePacker compile error I have another patch file for the Makefile.
[23:06] <TomWij> Toothpick: Well, if you added "dev-java/oracle-jdk" to RDEPEND of "virtual/jdk" then it would depend on it.

[23:11] <Toothpick> TomWij: ok so after changing /usr/local/portage/media-tv/xbmc/xbmc-9999.ebuild i need to run `ebuild /usr/local/portage/media-tv/xbmc/xbmc-9999.ebuild manifest` ? or manifest ebuild?
[23:12] <TomWij> Toothpick: Yeah, that command between the backticks is alright.
[23:12] <TomWij> If you ever forget it'll complain about it and then ignore your ebuild. :P
[23:12] <Toothpick> TomWij: should it merge oracle-jdk automatically?
[23:13] <Toothpick> TomWij: wait no it shouldn't
[23:13] <TomWij> Toothpick: If you have applied that whole dependency chain I sent you at :57 it will try to emerge one of the dependencies of virtual/jdk.

[23:14] * eephillip (~eephillip@pdpc/supporter/student/eephillip) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[23:15] <TomWij> I believe there are other possible ones, so unless you listed oracle-jdk first it will suggest those first; best to explicitly emerge oracle-jdk so it satisfies that dependency.
[23:15] <Toothpick> TomWij: aha
[23:16] <TomWij> Toothpick: With the java-config dependency oracle-jdk should now succeed without an error at the end.

[23:24] <TomWij> Toothpick: dev-java/oracle-jdk should no longer depend on virtual/jdk
[23:24] <TomWij> RDEPEND is not "reverse" dependency, it is "runtime" dependency
[23:25] <TomWij> "XBMC needs java at runtime" would be valid, whereas "oracle-jdk needs java at runtime" makes no sense since it provides java.
[23:26] <Toothpick> TomWij: oh, so i need to copy virtual/jdk to my local portage dir and change its ebuild too ?
[23:26] <TomWij> Toothpick: I don't know whether ebuild does dependency resolution, so for that last line you'll want to do `emerge oracle-jdk` instead.
[23:27] <TomWij> Toothpick: Yes, it's virtual/jdk that should depend on dev-java/oracle-jdk hence you'll need to adjust the virtual.
[23:31] * eephillip (~eephillip@pdpc/supporter/student/eephillip) has joined #raspberrypi

[23:32] <rikkib> http://www.bencom.co.nz/cam/ 4 modules fixed inside a sealed enclosure...
[23:33] <TomWij> Although by the looks of "export SYSROOT=/usr/local/bcm-gcc/arm-bcm2708-linux-gnueabi/sys-root" this is for when you build it using a cross-compiler, not natively (with distcc pumping) on the RPi.
