[0:13] <smoo2> hello, I've just tried to use rasp-config to set up overclocking, but I'm not convinced it is working. I selected the penultimate option (1 below the very highest) as a start. dmesg shows "[ 1.929443] bcm2835-cpufreq: min=700000 max=950000 cur=700000 " which sounds positive, but I'm compiling mongodb and "cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_cur_freq " still shows 700000 as the freq, which I think means the scaling h
[0:13] <hevauq> funny thing is I can mount pretty much all folders besides the mounted drives.
[0:14] * Leeky_afk is now known as Leeky
[0:14] <markedathome> BillyBag2: just early 2013 is the entry. unless you want to do the ebay auctions (can't remember if they are still running)
[0:14] <smoo2> dmesg also shows "[ 1.935346] bcm2835-cpufreq: switching to governor powersave" should this be something else? Is there a command line option to swith the mode?
[0:15] <markedathome> smoo2: it will increase as necessary
[0:15] <BillyBag2> smoo2 I found it does not over clock if IO bound, only when CPU bound. Best indicator is the temperature. If that starts to rise you have probably been terboping.
[0:16] <markedathome> terboping (??)
[0:16] <BillyBag2> terbo-ing
[0:16] <smoo2> BillyBag2: temp is about 50c - I guess that is low ish?
[0:16] <[diecast]> 50c is high
[0:17] <smoo2> i'm compiling code, so thought that would be CPU bound, but it's code on a usb flash drive, maybe thats limiting it...
[0:17] <[diecast]> oh, nm, was thinking about outside weather
[0:17] <[diecast]> for a cpu that is ok =P
[0:17] <BillyBag2> I think it depends on enviroment. I would say 50 is high. I see 40is and rises about 10 when doing stuff.
[0:17] <markedathome> $ /opt/vc/bin/vcgencmd measure_temp
[0:17] <markedathome> temp=50.8'C
[0:18] <[diecast]> but my cpu is usually around 35c
[0:18] <mgottschlag> isn't "powersave" always using the lowest level? I thought you need ondemand for turbo mode
[0:18] <smoo2> maybe I should open a window!
[0:18] <markedathome> about 50%cpu utilisation
[0:18] <smoo2> mgottschlag: that's what I thought too
[0:18] <BillyBag2> Mine is sat at 39. Ill run an apt-get update.
[0:19] <mgottschlag> also, try something which is definately cpu intensive (like copying from /dev/urandom to /dev/null) and then read the cpu speed
[0:20] <markedathome> http://www.raspberrypi.org/archives/2008
[0:20] <markedathome> We are happy that the combination of only applying turbo when busy, and limiting turbo when the BCM2835's internal temperature reaches 85?C,
[0:20] <markedathome> You can now choose from one of five overclock presets in raspi-config, the highest of which runs the ARM at 1GHz
[0:20] <smoo2> how do you change from "powersave" to "ondemand"
[0:20] <smoo2> I set it through raspi-config and rebooted
[0:21] <sundancer> how do you read cpu temperature? which command?
[0:21] <markedathome> http://elinux.org/RPi_config.txt#Overclocking_configuration
[0:21] <FrankBlues> The client is in the 192.168.0.x subnet, yes?
[0:21] <markedathome> sundancer: /opt/vc/bin/vcgencmd measure_temp ^^^ as posted
[0:21] <BillyBag2> Um, ok, I forgot I'm not in terbo mode. Temp has remained constant.
[0:21] <gordonDrogon> temp=48.7'C
[0:21] <gordonDrogon> nothing to write home about.
[0:21] <sundancer> thanks
[0:22] <gordonDrogon> when it hits 70 I'll wory.
[0:22] <gordonDrogon> that's a Pi inside an Adafruit case with a 'shield' on top.
[0:22] * brady2600 (~ludwig@71-208-40-199.hlrn.qwest.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:22] <gordonDrogon> so no ventilation at all, and the board on-top is sucking some juice too (about 150mA)
[0:22] * Holden (~holden@unaffiliated/holdenc) Quit (Quit: Ex-Chat)
[0:23] <BillyBag2> I was saying you can see when terbo mode has been working as you see about 10 degree rise in CPU.
[0:23] <mgottschlag> smoo2: the cpufrequtils package probably contains a simple program for that
[0:24] * Leeky is now known as Leeky_afk
[0:25] * [SLB] is now known as [SLB]`
[0:26] <smoo2> mgottschlag: Ah-ha! That's done it! I installed that, and as part of setting up the package it re-configured the scaling to ondemand and I'm now up to 950Mhz
[0:26] <smoo2> and 52c!
[0:27] <smoo2> Excellent. at this rate, I might have mongodb compiled by the end of the weekend!

[0:33] <markedathome> hmm... two and a bit hours later, I have a usb sound adapter that I can get audio output to with "aplay -D sysdefault:CARD=Device". However anything using pulse goes out the audio jack even though it should be first and/or default audio route.
[0:33] <markedathome> which is what I originally came here for...

[0:47] <KiltedPi> Anyone know what is wrong with this python function : http://codebin.org/view/raw/7440053b
[0:47] <KiltedPi> its just a simple test function
[0:48] <KiltedPi> I get an invalid syntax
[0:48] <KiltedPi> :S
[0:49] <smoo2> KiltedPi: which version of Python? Try removing the ; from the end of the lines
[0:49] <KiltedPi> 3.3
[0:49] <passcod> python shouldn't need semicolons?
[0:50] <KiltedPi> yeah, i tried removing them.
[0:50] <KiltedPi> I'm using it on windows incidentally
[0:50] <passcod> oh, isn't print a function in py3? so you'd do print("Yo") instead?
[0:50] <fayimora> markedathome: I'm still here
[0:50] <smoo2> KiltedPi: dont think you need them, not sure if it would break it. For Python 3+ I think the print syntax changed, should be something like print("hello")
[0:52] <KiltedPi> http://codebin.org/view/raw/1a311a03 <--- this is my revised version-
[0:52] <KiltedPi> oh, one sec
[0:52] <alajarvela> hey guys, was thinking about using my win8 tablet as a screen for the pi, do you guys if you can do that? like, i know about vnc but i was thinking if you can use a tablet as a screen when run via hdmi
[0:52] <markedathome> after the return press enter twice? go from ... to >>>
[0:52] <dr_willis> alajarvela: i imagine vnc will be slugish to use.
[0:53] <KiltedPi> http://codebin.org/view/raw/acae2864 <--- If someone could copy this into their powershell/IDLE editor-
[0:53] <alajarvela> yeah that is why i dont want to use vnc, i'd prefer if i can connect this tablet with hdmi to the pi and use it as a sreen for it
[0:53] <KiltedPi> Thats the working bit
[0:53] <KiltedPi> It uses a module called 'tkinter'
[0:53] <dr_willis> alajarvela: never seen any tablet with a HDMI in.,
[0:53] <markedathome> alajarvela: so the output goes from the hdmi on the rpi to a mini hdmi/hdmi on the tablet?
[0:53] <KiltedPi> which is for basic GUI manipulation
[0:53] <KiltedPi> You will see what I'm trying to do.
[0:54] <alajarvela> markedathome: yup.
[0:54] <KiltedPi> I want to then call "upCursor.configure(command=upButtonPressed)"
[0:54] * Leeky_afk is now known as Leeky
[0:54] <alajarvela> dr_willis: acer w510, this device is awesome. also got a keyboard dock and the batterylife is sick.
[0:54] <KiltedPi> (sorry everyone for pasting code in IRC)
[0:54] <KiltedPi> so when the button is pressed it will move my robot
[0:55] <alajarvela> markedathome: but i dont know if this can take input from the hdmi or just push out
[0:56] * Lachezar (~lachezar@77-85-81-36.btc-net.bg) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:56] <markedathome> depends on whether the tablet can announce itself as a video renderer over hdmi
[0:56] <smoo2> KiltedPi: your code works for the window, I can see your buttons. what doesnt work?
[0:56] <Lachezar> Hey all.
[0:56] <KiltedPi> smoo, private message okay?
[0:57] <smoo2> KiltedPi: sure
[0:57] <Lachezar> Has any one contemplated a way to put a touch screen on a full-size TV and hook it into the R-Pi?
[0:57] <alajarvela> markedathome: is it a hardware or software issue?
[0:57] <markedathome> then you would need some media player that can do it, mxplayer, vlc, something like that. maybe xbmc
[0:57] <alajarvela> okay
[0:59] <markedathome> windows media center/player should be ok

[1:03] <ryushe> 3G experts out there: I've got wvdial set up and working and being called from /etc/network/interfaces , however, I lose connection every 2 to 3 hours and have to manually reconnect. Any ideas on how to automate this or to have it try to reconnect every 30 minutes or so?

[1:04] <markedathome> ryushe: some sort of script that notices when the ethernet config goes down, ipconfig <something>

[1:05] <markedathome> ifconfig even -- it is getting late
[1:05] <ryushe> markedathome: I'm just clueless on how/where to set something like that up. Would it be a bash script called via cron that does an ifdown/ifup every 30 min or so?

[1:09] <akulbe> Are there "experimental" packages on the raspbian mirrors?
[1:09] <markedathome> you are looking for something along the lines of "linux 3g auto redial"
[1:09] <akulbe> and is getting those packages just a matter of adding "experimental" to the sources.list, or is there more to it than that?
[1:10] <akulbe> it seems like my sources.list file is pretty bare... there's only a single line there
[1:10] <akulbe> deb http://mirrordirector.raspbian.org/raspbian/ wheezy main contrib non-free rpi <-- that's it

[1:30] <blahblahJ> hi
[1:30] <markedathome> "caught in the landslide / no escape from reality"
[1:30] <blahblahJ> looking for some help - my RPI won't connect to my router or internet
[1:30] <linuxstb> markedathome: In my experience, upnp support in vlc is poor. Not only is it hard to find, you need to restart vlc to refresh the data (e.g. when a new file is added on the server).
[1:31] <markedathome> vlc is poorly designed anyway -
[1:31] <blahblahJ> I've tested multiple PSs, current one is 4.96v
[1:32] <markedathome> for example multi-select delete has been broken across many versions in the playlist. rather essential in a media player to remove unwanted tracks/media, don't you think
[1:32] <markedathome> blahblahJ: are you on a console?
[1:32] <markedathome> on the pi
[1:33] <markedathome> type ifconfig
[1:33] <blahblahJ> ok - 2 sec

[1:34] <markedathome> you should see eth0 and lo with inet. addr:192.x.x.x bcast:192.x.x.255 mask and mask respectively
[1:35] <markedathome> and if you want to move multiple items in the playlist you have to move them twice because it INVERTS the order.
[1:35] <markedathome> where the first 192.x.x.x should be the same as that of your laptop/desktop/ router
[1:37] * MidnighToker (~Toker@unaffiliated/midnightoker) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:37] <blahblahJ> ok - not seeing 192.xxx

[1:38] <markedathome> do you have a red, green, two amber lights down the opposite side of the usb cables to that of the ethernet

[1:40] <vorsaykal> blahblahJ: Either test a new ethernet cable on your Pi, or test that cable on another computer.
[1:41] <blahblahJ> I've tested that cable on another computer many times. Seems to work perfectly on my laptop
[1:41] <markedathome> what does arp -a say?
[1:42] <KiltedPi> is the raspberry pi powered by USB alone?
[1:42] <KiltedPi> I bought the USB hub from maplin
[1:42] <markbook> yep
[1:42] <KiltedPi> yeah?
[1:42] <KiltedPi> Neat.
[1:42] <markbook> You want to have a separate USB power thought
[1:42] <markbook> it really needs 1A

[1:43] <markbook> powering it from the same hub which is powering devices is fraught with peril
[1:43] <blahblahJ> arp -a does nothing
[1:43] <markbook> though some hubs have "charging ports" which may provide 1A all the time
[1:43] <vorsaykal> blahblahJ: Just checking to make sure, but which distro are you using?
[1:44] <blahblahJ> raspbmc. Tried OpenElec too - same issue

[1:47] <markbook> ??
[1:47] <markbook> 1000mA?
[1:48] <blahblahJ> 5v 1A
[1:48] <KiltedPi> doesnt say the amperes
[1:48] <KiltedPi> is that okay then?
[1:48] <blahblahJ> sorry - was trying to confirm without unplugging
[1:48] <KiltedPi> :S
[1:49] <vorsaykal> 1A is often pretty pushy.
[1:50] <blahblahJ> I bought this PS with my RPI, also tried a Samsung, Apple, and generic PS
[1:50] <KiltedPi> is this one i linked okay though? http://www.maplin.co.uk/cerulian-7-port-usb-2.0-triangular-desktop-hub-513864
[1:50] <KiltedPi> Doesnt say the amps
[1:50] <markbook> I can't find a power spec for the cerulian
[1:51] <vorsaykal> Try queueing up a ping then unplugging all your plugged in USB devices. I honestly don't know if it would simply start working even if it was the power, but who knows.
[1:52] <KiltedPi> me neither damn
[1:52] <markbook> THe two separate USB ports are kinda common when they have "quick charge" ports. THose ports will have higher power per port. Without a spec or a multimeter there's no way to know.
[1:52] <vorsaykal> Yesterday my ethernet wasn't working, which I assumed it was power, since I have a gaming keyboard and mouse with lots of lights, so I rebooted it with no USBs, then plugged in just the keyboard to log in and it was fine.
[1:52] <KiltedPi> So i'll need to get a multimeter on this hub for amperes. urgh
[1:52] <vorsaykal> I have 1A.
[1:52] <KiltedPi> vors, are you using the one i linked?
[1:52] <markbook> You certainly can try it with that. The worst it will do is crash and if it's during a write you have to rewrite the SD card.
[1:52] <KiltedPi> http://www.maplin.co.uk/cerulian-7-port-usb-2.0-triangular-desktop-hub-513864
[1:53] <KiltedPi> Ach! sod it then
[1:53] <markbook> hey if you're just getting set up, expect a fair amount of shake down.
[1:53] <blahblahJ> seriously - the RPI is quite a bit more difficult to set up than any linux distro I've done in the past
[1:53] <markbook> blahblahj: I missed the beginning of your conversation.
[1:54] <markedathome> blahblahJ: type ifconfig eth0 down
[1:54] <markbook> I haven't found that, but they do lead you to think that once you have the pi you have everything
[1:54] <markedathome> then ifconfig eth0 up
[1:54] <markbook> and everyone poohpoohs having a serial cable, which I find indispensable
[1:54] <blahblahJ> says operation not permitted
[1:55] <markbook> sudo ifconfig eth0 up
[1:55] <markedathome> sudo in fron
[1:55] <blahblahJ> got it

[1:55] <vorsaykal> Go the command or internet?
[1:55] <vorsaykal> s/Go/Got/
[1:56] <markedathome> was thinking go the game, or go the language myself :-)
[1:56] <markbook> heh markedathome: your geek is showing.
[1:56] <markedathome> what is the os, and do you have dhcpclient installed?
[1:57] * markedathome looks at this channel
[1:57] <blahblahJ> raspbmc - unsure
[1:57] <blahblahJ> how do I confirm dhcpclient is installed?
[1:58] <vorsaykal> Look at 'apt-cache --help'. I think it's somewhere in there.
[1:58] <markbook> blahblahj: recapping so I'm sure I have context: you have the pi connected to a display, USB keyboard, net cable attached and plugged to a hub or router, link lights on?
[1:58] <markbook> but not getting network in/out?
[1:58] * adb (~IonMoldom@ Quit (Ping timeout: 260 seconds)
[1:59] <blahblahJ> yes. lights are red, green, green, amber
[1:59] <markbook> and on the hub side of the net you have a link light?

[2:12] <MachinaeWolf> Is there a different way to get raspbian on the card besides dd, which when I do it, never seems to end up bootable, or bootberry?
[2:12] <KiltedPi> I'm doing this now
[2:12] <KiltedPi> whats dd?
[2:13] <KiltedPi> I used the windows one
[2:13] <MachinaeWolf> linux command to write iso's and img's
[2:13] <mythos> dd is the big brother of cc
[2:13] <KiltedPi> to create the image on my SD card reader
[2:13] <MachinaeWolf> lol mythos
[2:13] <KiltedPi> win32disk imagr
[2:13] <KiltedPi> It doesnt seem to be booting either
[2:13] <KiltedPi> :(
[2:14] <markedathome> dd is disk destroyer.
[2:14] <KiltedPi> Anyone done it from windows?
[2:14] <KiltedPi> windows 7, win32disk imager
[2:14] <markedathome> you are absolutely guaranteed to destroy at least one disk, and only one disk, by mixing up if and of

[2:15] <MachinaeWolf> I did dd if=img of=/dev/sdb1
[2:15] <markedathome> do you needs a bs parameter?
[2:16] <MachinaeWolf> no idea
[2:16] <KiltedPi> So whats in the directory on your SD card then, after successfully putting it on thru dd
[2:16] <MachinaeWolf> looked like nothing, wasn't mountable after ever...
[2:16] <mythos> MachinaeWolf, there is the problem. /dev/sdb1 has an offset. you have to use /dev/sdb (without a partition number)
[2:16] <MachinaeWolf> same thing happened with arch
[2:16] <BurtyB> sounds like you're doing it wrong then tbh
[2:16] <MachinaeWolf> oh really mythos...
[2:16] <mythos> MachinaeWolf, yeah, really

[2:31] <moebius_eye> People sell it for around $10
[2:32] <SourceSlayer> markedathome: Thanks, I'll look into it.
[2:32] <markedathome> there is also some car reversing video monitor with composite video in + resistive screen about 30-50 bucks

[3:40] <markedathome> along with a protar 50 hard disk
[3:41] <Tachyon`> hisoft basic and devpac in the main on the ST etc., actually it wasn't hiisoft, it was called power basic but it seemed the same as hisoft basic...
[3:42] <Tachyon`> shame we'll never get away with the sort of bare metal coding we did on the amiga on the Pi (although that might be a bit more liekly if they'd fully document everything, heh)
[3:43] <dr_willis> i still miss many of the features amigaos had.
[3:43] <atouk> fat agnus on the pi!!!!
[3:43] <dr_willis> ham mode!
[3:45] <markedathome> i miss where we would be software wise if the business world hadn't wanted backwards compatability at the expense of forward planning.

[3:53] <Tachyon`> ah, psygnosi
[3:53] <Tachyon`> the shadow of the beasts were some of my favourites
[3:53] <atouk> roger dean art on the cover, and a tshirt in the box
[3:54] <Tachyon`> ah, t-shirts in the box, never fit, lol
[3:54] <Tachyon`> they're usually designed for people a little larger than I am
[3:54] <dr_willis> i saw there was a rereleased 'carrier command' on steam the other day
[3:54] <Tachyon`> hrm, never like d that game
[3:55] <Tachyon`> then again I had a spectrum when it came out
[3:55] <Tachyon`> I might have liked it a lot better on an amiga
[3:55] <atouk> remember Cult?
[3:55] <Tachyon`> the company?
[3:55] <atouk> the came
[3:55] <Tachyon`> hrm, no
[3:55] <atouk> (game)
[3:56] <Tachyon`> for some reason I thought it was an independent software company, although perhaps it was that too
[3:56] <atouk> it started by a couple of brothers in the UK
[3:56] <Tachyon`> I used to prefer RPG games (still do actually)
[3:56] <Tachyon`> rebelstar, lords of chaos etc.
[3:56] <atouk> there was a really great space sim on it, adn i can't remember the name
[3:57] <Tachyon`> don't suppose those games would pass muster now but they did the joy when I was at boarding school
[3:57] <Tachyon`> epic?
[3:57] <Tachyon`> although I remember that more for the excellent intro than the game
[3:57] <Tachyon`> (which you only got if you had a 1MiB machine)
[3:57] <Tachyon`> intro took up a whole disk and if you didn't have a meg you didn't even get to see it, lol
[3:57] <Tachyon`> (Epic)
[3:58] <atouk> game sarted with the first missions being training missions on navigation, weapons, etc
[3:58] <Tachyon`> I dunno, I only really played /the/ space sim game
[3:59] <Tachyon`> which I ported to pandora a year or two ago and won't be porting to the pi as braben will sue the crap out of me
[3:59] <atouk> and i can' tcount how many mice my kids wore out playing shufflepuck cafe

[6:16] <ParkerR_> GPU needs some to run
[6:16] <ParkerR_> I think 32 is the bare minimum
[6:16] <risc> hi all
[6:16] <sheldor> Prime326: 16
[6:16] <TAFB> thanks atouk :)
[6:16] <ParkerR_> Ahh 16
[6:16] <sheldor> 16 is the official minimum

[6:17] <Prime326> what happens if I set it lower than that?

[6:17] <TAFB> Prime326: nothin. I had mine set at 1, still used 16 :)
[6:17] <sheldor> atouk: wow i like that animation
[6:17] <atouk> not mine
[6:18] <ParkerR_> Prime326, Oh now that I think of it I think arch keeps up with firmware updtes

[6:22] <atouk> people runnnign pis really aren't looking for nuke hardened devices. it's a utility/educational/hobbyist/toy platform
[6:23] <sheldor> atouk: no that is a broad generalization, monkeymon was planning to run it as a radius server
[6:23] <sheldor> which is one of the most critical servers you can run
[6:24] <s5fs> sheldor: true, but a radius server is rarely internet-facing
[6:24] <sheldor> how is this relevant s5fs?
[6:24] <atouk> then instead of complaining about the "unstable" release, maybe spend a few more bucks and get something more "secure"
[6:24] <s5fs> it lowers the attack vector, meaning you can probably go a bit longer between patches, safely
[6:25] <sheldor> atouk: who is complaining?

[6:25] <sheldor> s5fs: no it doesnt, all radius servers run locally
[6:25] <sheldor> therefore the attack vector was never larger
[6:26] <sheldor> obviously you are not saying all radius servers require no security are you?
[6:26] <s5fs> hosts on a lan only are much less vulnerable than hosts on the public internet, thats all i'm saying
[6:26] <sheldor> because radius servers are one of the most critical servers in your lan
[6:26] <atouk> don't use it for this, don't use it for that, it's "oficially" unstable sounds like complaining
[6:27] <sheldor> s5fs: that is a broad and uninformed generalization, far all you know the "lan" might be hundreds or thousands of random participants
[6:27] <sheldor> actually the requirement of a radius server in the first place suggests it is fairly large
[6:27] <s5fs> now you're just spouting bs, are you trolling me?
[6:27] <sheldor> atouk: i dont see how stating facts is complaining
[6:27] <sheldor> s5fs: no, but you either are trolling or ignorant
[6:28] <s5fs> i've set up a few radius servers, it's not rocket surgery and it's not super special in any way.
[6:28] <sheldor> s5fs: relevant to what i said how?
[6:29] <sheldor> atouk: note that there are stable options on the rpi: for example arch
[6:29] <sheldor> which was one option in the original question
[6:31] <Prime326> wait arch is "stable" now?

[6:33] <sheldor> especially if you plan to run it as a production server
[6:33] <atouk> no, if you need more ram, you need a different platform
[6:33] <Prime326> sheldor: it's not unstable, but saying it's inherently more stable than a debian fork is silly
[6:33] <clear`> oh, moar powarrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!
[6:33] <TAFB> clear`: I love dem sata ports! http://tafb.yi.org
[6:33] <TAFB> and it works great on 128mb ram ;)
[6:33] <sheldor> Prime326: not it isnt because it is officially inherently more stable according to the developers
[6:33] <clear`> production server on a $35 board?!
[6:33] <clear`> lol
[6:33] <clear`> really
[6:33] <TAFB> now running exim, citadel, webmail, etc :)
[6:33] <clear`> thats funny sheldor
[6:33] <dr_willis> moar gaga-fights
[6:33] <s5fs> clear`: hi-end engineering
[6:34] <atouk> the pi was developed for a specific purpose. educational platform
[6:34] <sheldor> Prime326: the debian developers explicitly discourage using unstable wheezy for anything production related

[6:34] <risc> IMHO sheldor is bringing up valid points, points that have me looking on google to see if Raspbian does track any of the security fixes available on the Debian repos :P
[6:34] <sheldor> clear`: monkeymon was planning to use it as such. "production" doesnt require high load
[6:34] <SpeedEvil> anyone using a pi for critical servers, with the known soldering, USB lockuo and network bugs, is insane.
[6:34] <risc> but sure keep calling him a troll ;)
[6:34] <SpeedEvil> IMO
[6:34] <Prime326> sheldor: and people discourage using arch for production for the same reason, not that it matters for the pi
[6:35] <SpeedEvil> this does not make the pi close to useless.
[6:35] <clear`> the pi is awesome
[6:35] <clear`> but like everything, it has limitations
[6:35] <Prime326> SpeedEvil: exactly
[6:35] <sheldor> risc: yeah i guess it is some protection instinct akin to that of a mother toward its child
[6:35] <sheldor> i love rpi
[6:35] <sheldor> it is a great child
[6:35] <sheldor> no doubt about that
[6:35] <s5fs> i bought a pi because i didn't wanna drop $90 on a beaglebone
[6:36] <sheldor> just dont let it do everything
[6:36] <sheldor> toward her child* lol
[6:36] <Torikun> how can you male
[6:36] <Torikun> how can you make Apache use less memory
[6:37] <Torikun> each request keeps a process open for awhile
[6:37] <Torikun> congrats on getting citadel up tafb
[6:37] <TAFB> Torikun: I know how ;)
[6:37] <Torikun> how tafb lol
[6:37] <TAFB> Torikun: uninstall it and install nginx :)
[6:38] <Torikun> haha would it be east transition
[6:38] <TAFB> thanks Torikun, citadel is working AMAZING! Runs fast too.
[6:38] <atouk> the pi is not a full platform machine. even expecting it to run apache as if it is means the user is starting with an ill conceived idea of what he wants and what the pi is capable of
[6:38] <TAFB> Torikun: I'm no expert, but nginx was easy easy to set up. Are you using virtual hosts?
[6:38] <sheldor> SpeedEvil: what kind of network bugs do you mean?
[6:39] <s5fs> atouk: what are you using the pi for?
[6:39] <SpeedEvil> sheldor: for some people, USB networking just locks up occasionally
[6:39] <Torikun> no
[6:39] <atouk> depends on what time of the day you ask me.
[6:39] <sheldor> SpeedEvil: what is usb networking exactly?
[6:39] <Torikun> something I wanna learn
[6:39] <SpeedEvil> the network chip is connected over USB
[6:39] <TAFB> Torikun: then it'd be super easy :) nginx + php-fpm + mysql = way faster than apache :)
[6:40] <Torikun> OK will give it a go . apache killing pie
[6:40] <clear`> i bet
[6:40] <TAFB> Torikun: sounds good man, if you need help getting PHP working just ask, it's a little funny.
[6:40] <clear`> apache can kill servers that are meant for being a webhost :P
[6:40] <sheldor> oh i see SpeedEvil
[6:40] <clear`> i want to try nginx, but i havent just yet
[6:40] <sheldor> TAFB: nice sounds good
[6:40] <sheldor> i have to try nginx too
[6:41] <s5fs> i'm using node.js for my web server
[6:41] <sheldor> apache+php+sqlite is kinda slow
[6:41] <atouk> let me give it a go. unrealistic expectations if making apache performance seem sub par.
[6:41] <atouk> (of making)
[6:41] <sheldor> why exactly is apache so slow on the pi?
[6:41] <TAFB> Torikun: I will make you up a little text file with the install instructions. Are you using arch?
[6:42] <risc> sheldor: I can see no reason for it to be, unless the rest of the OS is a bloat service running fest, I've run an AMP stack (OpenBSD) on a Soekris net6501 and that was only 600MHz with 512MB of RAM, it ran fine
[6:43] <risc> *fine = acceptable given the hardware :P
[6:44] <sheldor> hm weird risc, i also epxerienced it is pretty slow
[6:44] <sheldor> but i dont see a reason either

[6:45] <piney> sheldor, you could try php-fpm with apache instead of mod_php, or have you?
[6:45] <atouk> and as far as apache performance goes. the pi has a better weight to horsepower ratio than almost any other computer out there
[6:45] <sheldor> oh thanks i am using mod_php

[6:46] <sheldor> piney: why is that slower?
[6:47] * ReggieUK (ReggieUK@5aca56e7.bb.sky.com) Quit ()
[6:47] <piney> php-fpm is a newer way of integrating with a web server, it runs like it's own service using a port or unix socket, instead of being integrated with apache
[6:48] <atouk> besides there are exactly three ICs on the pi. everyone knows that a real apache server needs at least 4
[6:48] <risc> :)
[6:49] <piney> with mod_php say you have a php page that requires apache to use 5mb ram each time it loads. now, anytime that apache serves even a 'hello' world web page, it will use a process that consumes 5mb ram to serve that hello world web page
[6:49] <piney> having 20 or so processes multiplies this problem
[6:49] <piney> having apache (or another web server) offload this handling to php-fpm is a much cleaner way
[6:49] * SSilver2k2 (~ssilverm@70-119-28-206.res.bhn.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[6:50] <sheldor> nice
[6:50] <sheldor> i should probably try nginx + php-fpm
[6:51] <s5fs> has anyone tried lighttpd? i was running that on beagleboards for a while
[6:51] <piney> i'm an nginx user myself
[6:51] <TAFB> i'm running php-fpm on a 100% constant loop in a bash script, to convert dynamic php pages to static html. It opens up three processes using about 4mb each and 2.5% cpu each when under full "php load" :) That's why my status page can load so fast and serve 1600 hits per second :) http://tafb.yi.org/
[6:52] <s5fs> TAFB: impressive!
[6:52] <TAFB> yep, works great
[6:52] <TAFB> I can't wait to try it with wordless or drupal
[6:52] <sheldor> cool TAFB
[6:52] <sheldor> TAFB: with nginx?
[6:52] <sheldor> nice status page too
[6:53] <TAFB> yep, nginx + php-fpm (no mysql yet)
[6:53] <piney> php-fpm has this fairly new process manager too called ondemand. it will launch the processes as needed instead of having the processes open all the time.
[6:53] <TAFB> thanks, I put a lot of work into it :)
[6:54] <piney> TAFB, have you looked in to chrooting php-fpm to a user / directory to prevent it from needing root to access the exec() stuff? i think it can be done, but didn't try yet on the pi
[6:54] <clear`> wordless
[6:54] <TAFB> going to work on getting rid of phpChart, it's a huge drain on resources and I can't get it to dynamically update anyway, plus there's already a cpu usage bar :)

[7:33] <sheldor> haha
[7:33] <sheldor> i just want to understand though
[7:33] <sheldor> in a nutshell
[7:33] <sheldor> why do you prefer it?
[7:33] <Torikun> solaris sucks
[7:34] <risc> Torikun: agreed, I chucked out an Ultra 45 here recently :)
[7:34] <risc> sheldor: base system + ports versus random crap...
[7:35] <Torikun> 100 mob ram left on pi. darn Apache
[7:35] <sheldor> random crap = linux?
[7:35] <risc> sheldor: http://www.over-yonder.net/~fullermd/rants/bsd4linux/01
[7:35] <risc> sheldor: yes
[7:35] <sheldor> thx
[7:35] <Torikun> use arch if you want a BSD like experience lol
[7:35] <risc> that's not meant to be rude, but Linux is just a kernel and a bunch of utilities thrown together... while BSDs are planned OSes
[7:36] <risc> if you read that link it should make more sense
[7:36] <atouk> you're just going to get a protestants vs baptists type argument
[7:36] <sheldor> i see
[7:36] <Torikun> RISC don't you hate the ox scheduler
[7:36] <Torikun> osx
[7:36] <risc> atouk: exactly - and why I said "< risc> sheldor: that's a big religious arguement there :)"
[7:36] <UnaClocker> Is there a BSD image for the Pi?
[7:37] <risc> Torikun: honestly my OS X sessions are pretty much a MacBook Air with a full screen terminal app (and that's it)
[7:37] <Torikun> the osx scheduler feels like it balances everything slowly
[7:37] <Torikun> ah
[7:37] <atouk> meanwhile the scientologists come in and start pusing OSX
[7:37] <Torikun> pay big money for terminal

[11:50] <mrmoney2012> well??? i've been using all the latest images
[11:51] <mrmoney2012> maybe it's just me over clocking or some such but the sd card holder is way too brittle anyway

[13:55] <fayimora> Holden: Hmm yes but not router. I'm using a usb
[13:55] <Holden> fayimora, try this command on your rpi: wget -q -O - http://icanhazip.com/
[13:56] <apo> tried with no cables, USB cable is seated, the voltage is okay, tried with the alternative bootcode.bin, never connected 7V to it, the SD card holder is okay, and the fuse isn't blown
[13:56] <Holden> it should return your IP address... to access you rpi from the outside you need to open a port on your router/modem though
[13:56] <markedathome> Holden: neat

[14:01] <ShiftPlusOne> Aren't the preloaded cards just stock raspbian?
[14:01] <nid0> usually yea
[14:01] <plugwash> Most preloaded cards are probablly shipping the raspberry Pi foundation image
[14:02] <TheCommieDuck> Isn't that the pisces image?

[14:03] <TheCommieDuck> I'd rather screw around with stuff already on there than from a semi-blank state
[14:03] <tzarc> make one with debootstrap?
[14:03] <fayimora> Holden: yes i got a number :D. Same number from my mac though.. Would the be the IP of my router?
[14:03] <tzarc> a minbase raspbian was 110MB last time I checked
[14:03] <tzarc> was a few months ago tho
[14:03] <plugwash> ShiftPlusOne, not really there are the hexxeh and pisces images but they are getting pretty old now
[14:04] <tzarc> compresses down to ~30MB
[14:04] <ShiftPlusOne> plugwash, alright thanks, was just wondering.
[14:04] <Holden> fayimora, no, that number is your IP address, the one assigned to you by your ISP. the router will be something like 192.168.x.x
[14:04] <plugwash> there are a variety of people distributing their own smaller images on the forum but most of them are going about it the wrong way round trying to strip the foundation image rather than building one up with what they want
[14:04] <TheCommieDuck> Whilst I'm here: it is/should be possible to dualboot into raspbian wheezy and raspbmc (or equivalent xmbc distro) on the same sd card, right?
[14:05] <fayimora> Holden: Hmm so why does my mac spit out the same IP then?
[14:05] <ShiftPlusOne> TheCommieDuck, look up berryboot
[14:05] <TheCommieDuck> The formatting came after I put raspbmc on it then realised it strips down most of debian.
[14:05] <tzarc> debootstrap --foreign --variant=minbase --include=${EXTRA_PACKAGES} --arch=armhf --no-check-gpg testing ${CHROOT_PATH} http://archive.raspbian.org/raspbian/
[14:05] <tzarc> is what I used to build a minimal image
[14:05] <xrosnight> it seems that Sandisk extreme series are much faster than ultra series. has anyone tested or filmed?
[14:05] <tzarc> replacing the environment variables of course
[14:05] <Holden> fayimora, because you are using the same internet connection (the same router) with both
[14:05] <TheCommieDuck> Great thanks :D
[14:05] <tzarc> once it's set up rsync it to a card
[14:06] <fayimora> I see.. Thanks Holden
[14:06] <tzarc> you'll probably need to set up qemu for entering the chroot beforehand though

[14:11] <ShiftPlusOne> He wanted the opposite. He wants everything preinstalled.
[14:12] <TheCommieDuck> Okay, a final question (I'm a total electronics newb here): How much control over the pi can you have via the GPIO ports? I've so far been shutting it down by pulling the power, which I discovered isn't good..so anyway, would I be able to send a sudo shutdown command via the GPIO somehow?
[14:12] <frikinz> Dunno then, I've been reading tzarc commands and followed the discussion :)
[14:12] <TheCommieDuck> frikinz: Huh? :P
[14:12] <ShiftPlusOne> heh
[14:12] <TheCommieDuck> isn't qemu the x86 emulator?
[14:12] <ShiftPlusOne> TheCommieDuck, it emulates a lot more than x86
[14:12] <tzarc> if you want a preinstalled image, what I said ain't gonna cut it
[14:12] <ShiftPlusOne> you can use it to emulate a pi, for example
[14:12] <TheCommieDuck> Ah.
[14:13] <tzarc> debootstrap is used to build a minimal root filesystem for the pi, based on raspbian
[14:13] <ShiftPlusOne> TheCommieDuck, you can do pretty much anything through gpio.
[14:13] <tzarc> qemu is used to enter into it on your machine, so you can do post configuration before it goes on the pi
[14:14] <plugwash> regular qemu cannot emulate a Pi
[14:14] <ShiftPlusOne> trolus has patches
[14:14] * dreamon__ (~dreamon@unaffiliated/dreamon) Quit (Ping timeout: 272 seconds)
[14:14] <plugwash> it can emulate a system with the same processor and same ammount of memory as a Pi but that is NOT the same thing
[14:14] <tzarc> but it can emulate an armhf, which is enough to get into an environment for configuration
[14:14] <ShiftPlusOne> certainly good enough for most people who want to emulate a pi
[14:14] <TheCommieDuck> ShiftPlusOne: Okay. I've seen things about people controlling output via console, but nothing about inputting into the console
[14:14] <tzarc> you then copy the root over to a preformatted SD card, and boot on the pi itself
[14:14] <plugwash> in any case though we were talking about user mode qemu here which doesn't emaulate a system at all
[14:14] <tzarc> yup
[14:15] <TheCommieDuck> I think I'll go get berryboot and all that set up before too much fiddling :P

[14:18] <Holden> fayimora, yes, as I said, if you work inside you local network you must use the 192.168.x.x address of your rpi, if you are outside you need to use your external IP address (after you have forwarded the port in your router)

[14:26] <Hopsy> is it the driver or the chip?
[14:26] <plugwash> Forwarding the port must be done on whatever is doing the network address translation, most likely a home router of some kind
[14:26] <plugwash> unfortunately while every home router i've seen can forward ports the administrative interfaces are all different
[14:26] <Holden> fayimora, usually you do that by entering in the router configuration page and adding a line for the port you want to forward. other easier method consists in using a program that open the port via UPnP

[15:51] <gordonDrogon> alex88, 1-26 :)
[15:51] <alex88> gordonDrogon, yeah sorry :)
[15:51] <gordonDrogon> alex88, yet another pin number confusion scheme :)
[15:51] * defsdoor (~andy@cpc17-sutt4-2-0-cust175.perr.cable.virginmedia.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[15:51] <gordonDrogon> although I wonder if I can add it into wiringPi ...
[15:51] <alex88> not sure which one I should start to use for my projects
[15:51] * gordonDrogon ponders
[15:51] <defsdoor> any use gpio for control led strings ?
[15:52] <gordonDrogon> alex88, I'd check the docs - note than the BCM pin numbers changed from rev1 to rev2 boards - see if the gio.board numbers reflect the right pins ...
[15:52] <gordonDrogon> defsdoor, yes.
[15:52] <gordonDrogon> defsdoor, oh - led or lcd ?
[15:52] <alex88> gordonDrogon, yeah just read about the change at http://elinux.org/RPi_Low-level_peripherals
[15:52] <gordonDrogon> defsdoor, although driving leds sin't hard.
[15:53] <defsdoor> gordonDrogon, cool - I've got some ws2801 strings which I believe are simple as they have a clock and data line
[15:53] <alex88> also, gordonDrogon, I can use green pins (in the table) for in out without problems? i2c and 1wire are only specially used in that case, I can still use input/output on those pins right'
[15:53] <defsdoor> but I've also got some ws2811 on the way
[15:53] <defsdoor> I've been controlling them from arduino up to now
[15:53] <defsdoor> but I ran out of ram
[15:56] <defsdoor> is the 5v pin on the gpio headers supplied before or after the voltage regulator ?
[15:56] <gordonDrogon> defsdoor, ah, those - yes - use the SPI port on the Pi to drive them.
[15:57] <gordonDrogon> alex88, yes, the 8 green pins are fine.
[15:57] <gordonDrogon> defsdoor, 5v on the Pi isn't regulated.
[15:57] <defsdoor> cool so I can take from that without blowing up the pi :)
[15:58] <gordonDrogon> alex88, you can use the I2C pins too - but they have on-board 1.8K pull-ups.
[15:58] <gordonDrogon> defsdoor, yes, but there is only about 150-200mA spare on it. Consider using external power and remembe that the Pi's outputs (& inputs) are 3.3v.
[15:58] <defsdoor> thats ok - 3.3v on clock/data is enough - or so I've read
[15:59] <gordonDrogon> alex88, actually, you can use all the pins as general purpose ones - just don't load the I2C and SPI modules (not loaded by default) and off you go.
[15:59] <gordonDrogon> defsdoor, it usually is OK to drive 5v/ttl type peripherals.
[15:59] <defsdoor> gordonDrogon, when you say 200ma spare - isnt that dependent on the power supply used ?
[15:59] <gordonDrogon> I've not used those led drivers myself, but know people who have.
[15:59] <gordonDrogon> defsdoor, sort of - the Pi has an on-board 700mA polyfuse though.
[15:59] * justadoit (~justadoit@wn2nat48.beelinegprs.ru) has joined #raspberrypi
[16:00] <gordonDrogon> and the 5v on the GPIO is behind that.
[16:00] <defsdoor> oh
[16:00] <defsdoor> ok
[16:00] <defsdoor> makes things a little messy
[16:00] <gordonDrogon> you can power the pi thtough the 5v on the GPIO...
[16:00] <gordonDrogon> just don't connect the micro usb power lead...
[16:00] <alex88> gordonDrogon, in case of loaded modules and general purpose pin usage? something like http://www.gonzotimes.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/divide3.jpg ?
[16:00] <defsdoor> oh right
[16:00] <defsdoor> thats cool then
[16:00] <gordonDrogon> but do take care - wrong polarity will kill the pi, etc.
[16:01] <defsdoor> only 1 psu needed (or no messing breaking the supply lead open)
[16:01] <gordonDrogon> alex88, Ha... That's a resovour overflow pipe :)
[16:01] <alex88> :)
[16:01] <alex88> btw, just starting using pins for general I/O, nothing more, maybe some 1wire on gpio4 later
[16:01] <gordonDrogon> alex88, however http://unicorn.drogon.net/pi17leds.jpg
[16:02] <alex88> thanks for the tip man :)
[16:02] <alex88> yeah that's using all the 17 usable pins right?
[16:02] <gordonDrogon> you can use gpio 4 ok - again, aslong as you don't load the 1-wire module it's just a normal IO pin.
[16:02] <alex88> seen that pic some mins ago
[16:02] <alex88> kk, thank you very much!
[16:02] <gordonDrogon> I like to use the I2C pins for inputs (for buttons) as they have the 1K8 resistors.
[16:03] <gordonDrogon> so it saves setting the internal ones, or using external pul-up's.
[16:03] <aDro> Has anyone attached their RPi to their computer via Ethernet cable?
[16:03] <frikinz> yes
[16:03] <gordonDrogon> just be aware that they are high whend no button pressed, and low when pressed.
[16:03] <aDro> Did you use a Cross-over cable?
[16:03] <gordonDrogon> aDro, you mean directly without going via your lan/router/switch, etc. ?
[16:03] <aDro> gordonDrogon: Correct.
[16:04] <gordonDrogon> aDro, I don't use x-over cables, but I think my laptops are auto sensing.
[16:04] <alex88> gordonDrogon, ok thanks for the tips, need to understand better things about resistors etc but i'll google for that :)
[16:04] <gordonDrogon> alex88, all my stuff is in C (or basic), but this might help: https://projects.drogon.net/raspberry-pi/gpio-examples/
[16:05] <frikinz> I didn't use a Xover cable. my laptop as gigabit so has autosensing
[16:05] <aDro> I have a Windows box with two network cards, and I would like to attempt to gain access to the internet through the machine without a router.
[16:06] <gordonDrogon> I think autosensing is built into the Gb specification anyway...
[16:06] <aDro> You are right gordonDrogon.

[16:46] <kgee> I'm trying to manage disk images for my PI. I can easily 'dd' the image to an SD card, but naturally when I dd it back it has expanded to fit the size of the card. Is there any way to compress a raw disk image so I can share my work more easily?
[16:46] * [SLB]` is now known as [SLB]
[16:47] <|Jeroen|> you can use partimage
[16:47] <TheCommieDuck> Is there any way I'd be able to access an external HD plugged into my pi as a regular drive over my network..from a windows machine? Or is that asking too much of a windows->linux system thiongy?
[16:47] <xzr> samba sharing
[16:47] <kgee> |Jeroen|: Thanks! I knew it must exist somewhere
[16:47] <xzr> will work
[16:47] <TheCommieDuck> Oh, great.
[16:48] <|Jeroen|> nk kgee , i used it for backup and resote of sd, and it works great
[16:48] <|Jeroen|> np
[16:48] <TheCommieDuck> I planned to use my rpi in part as a media centre, but it'd be nice to avoid unplugging the HD from it to use it on my windows PC

[16:49] <kgee> I'm working on the smallest clustering project I've ever come across, and being able to flash multiple disks quickly to several units is going to become important :)
[16:49] <|Jeroen|> nice
[16:49] <|Jeroen|> what are you planing to do with the cluster?
[16:50] <|Jeroen|> you could also boot then with an nfsroot
[16:50] <PhotoJim> TheCommieDuck: if you're going to leave that hard disk on your Pi perpetually, and only access it over the network, you might want to format it with a Linux filesystem... then you could share it over the network as either a Windows share or a Linux NFS share.
[16:50] <kgee> |Jeroen|: the goal is shifting along with my knoledge/expectations of the PI model B. Autonomous vehicles and computer vision is my area of interest, but the opengl ES / GPGPU / natural interaction over USB bandwidth is limited
[16:51] <|Jeroen|> ic

[17:22] <PhotoJim> TheCommieDuck: you basically want it to be a file server. I run one of those too (albeit not on a Pi) and I keep the network share in Linux ext4 format. I always access it over the network.
[17:24] <PhotoJim> TheCommieDuck: the only down side would be if you found the Pi's performance to be inadequate. If you had the network share in a Windows format, it would be easier to move it to your desktop, laptop, etc. But if you like the concept and don't like the Pi, the better answer (to me) would just be to get a faster file server, and run Linux on it too. And the Pi may well be enough if your demands aren't too extreme.
[17:24] * redarrow (~quassel@unaffiliated/redarrow) has joined #raspberrypi
[17:24] <PhotoJim> TheCommieDuck: a native Linux file system is likely to be faster for the Pi. One could test it.

[18:57] <gordonDrogon> alex88, Hi?
[18:57] <alex88> setting pin to high doesn't make difference
[18:57] <alex88> gordonDrogon, was just asking :)
[18:57] <gordonDrogon> let me look at the board..
[18:58] <alex88> I've read there to remove the jumper but that didn't make any difference
[18:58] <alex88> thanks gordonDrogon
[18:58] * Shaan7 (~quassel@kde/developer/shantanu) Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[18:59] <gordonDrogon> so Vcc is connected to the Pi's 3.3v ?
[18:59] <raspier> ShiftPlusOne: Yes! Except I think I actually want multistrap
[19:00] <gordonDrogon> alex88, does the green LED come on when you set an output low?
[19:00] <UnaClocker> The Pi's 3.3v is only good for 100ma, it takes 80ma to drive a single relay.
[19:00] <alex88> gordonDrogon, sorry, I exchanged the 5v with the gnd :)
[19:00] <alex88> now, I've connected it properly
[19:00] <alex88> but with gpio 0 it closes the relay, with 1 it releases
[19:01] <gordonDrogon> ok. remove jumper for now, connect vcc to the Pi's 3.3 and set an output to ground.
[19:01] <gordonDrogon> green led ought to come on.
[19:01] <alex88> gordonDrogon, an output to ground?
[19:01] <gordonDrogon> do you have wiringPi installed?
[19:01] <alex88> gordonDrogon, nope? gimme second for that
[19:01] <ShiftPlusOne> I am not too familiar with debian and bootstrap and multistrap. >.> Just copied that command from someone else
[19:02] <gordonDrogon> alex88, git clone git://git.drogon.net/wiringPi ; cd wiringPi ; ./build
[19:02] <gordonDrogon> this is just to give you the gpio command so you can toggle bits from the command-line.
[19:02] <ShiftPlusOne> I tend to get by with scratchbox2 for these things.

[19:03] <gordonDrogon> alex88, you can potentially destroy the Pi like that.
[19:04] <alex88> the only problem is that 0 -> on, 1 -> off
[19:04] <alex88> why?
[19:04] <gordonDrogon> you must not connect 5v to a Pi's GPIO pin.
[19:04] * tanuva (~tanuva@ Quit (Quit: Leaving.)
[19:04] <alex88> nope, it's pi -> relay board
[19:04] <alex88> pi's v5 is on relay board vcc
[19:04] <gordonDrogon> so what goes to the anode of the LEDs?
[19:05] <alex88> they work fine, just they come up when output is 0
[19:05] <alex88> and they're down with 1
[19:05] <gordonDrogon> ok, but if you're not using the Pi's 3.3v to power the LEDs then you will destroy the Pi's GPIO pins, if not now, then in the future.
[19:06] <gordonDrogon> you power the LEDs with the 3.3 and the relays with the +5v
[19:06] <alex88> the vcc is to power the less?
[19:06] <frikinz> raspier: can't you use chroot?
[19:06] <alex88> *leds
[19:06] <gordonDrogon> looks like if you remove the jumper you isolate the supplys.

[19:07] <alex88> gordonDrogon, but I should put the 5v into the jd-vcc connector right?
[19:07] <alex88> *pin
[19:07] <alex88> and the 3,3v to the vcc to power the leds
[19:08] <gordonDrogon> yes, to power the relays - as long as it's not touching the 3.3v.
[19:08] <frikinz> so my old config.txt doesn't allow the pi to boot with the latest git rpi-firmware. wonder which line it doesn't like
[19:09] <gordonDrogon> alex88, however that article does say that some RPI's won't work reliably - and I can see why - it says that you might need to change the resistor from 1000?? to 220?? ... The Pi's 3.3 might not be able to drive those 2 LEDs in series.

[19:10] <gordonDrogon> also you will need a separate PSU for the relays anyway - the Pi's 5V will not supply enough to make them all turn on.
[19:11] <alex88> gordonDrogon, oh well, first I should put the 5v to the jd-vcc, just to isolate first.. then I'll try some changes
[19:11] <alex88> gordonDrogon, yeah maybe that too
[19:11] * AndrevS (~andrevs@grombeestje.xs4all.nl) Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[19:11] <alex88> if I use external PSU the gnd should go to that one?
[19:11] <raspier> frikinz: Not for a rootfs built for a different arch surely?
[19:11] <gordonDrogon> I'd forget the 5V and concentrate on getting the LED to light up reliably first.
[19:11] <frikinz> raspier: you can move a qemu static binary inside it
[19:11] <ShiftPlusOne> raspier, with qemu you can chroot into an arm rootfs
[19:12] <frikinz> raspier: that's how I aptitude removed crap
[19:12] <alex88> gordonDrogon, forget the 5v and power it with what?
[19:12] * AndrevS (~andrevs@2001:888:1590:0:225:b3ff:fec0:41e1) has joined #raspberrypi
[19:12] <alex88> I mean, continue using with 5v to vcc?
[19:12] <raspier> ShiftPlusOne: Yeah I'm probably going to end up doing that
[19:12] <gordonDrogon> alex88, just power the LEDs with 3.3 to make sure the LEDs light first. One step at a time ..
[19:12] <ShiftPlusOne> raspier, is this just for cross-compiling?
[19:12] <alex88> uh ok, sure, btw thanks for the tips?gtg now, cya later or another day? thank you very much again!
[19:12] <gordonDrogon> alex88, once you are confident you can turn the LED(s) on/off, then you can connect the 5v and listen for the click of the relay.
[19:13] <raspier> ShiftPlusOne: Sort of :)
[19:13] <ShiftPlusOne> raspier, sounds like scratchbox2 would come in handy for you.
[19:13] <gordonDrogon> the gpio command in wiringPi makes this easier than echo 1 > .... just type gpio -g mode 4 out ; gpio -g write 4 0 ; gpio -g write 4 1, etc.
[19:14] <raspier> ShiftPlusOne: Yeah I think so. Are there some good links for setting it up?
[19:14] <ShiftPlusOne> raspier, yeah, ukscone wrote a pretty good guide, lemme find it.
[19:14] <ShiftPlusOne> raspier, http://pastebin.com/4Jp1WPTb
[19:14] <frikinz> I wrote a quick one here http://teebeenator.blogspot.fr/2012/12/cross-compilation-with-scratchbox2.html :)
[19:15] <ShiftPlusOne> except I wouldn't use the mentor toolchain.
[19:16] <frikinz> in my tutorial I mention this one https://github.com/raspberrypi/tools.git . Which one would you advice ShiftPlusOne ?
[19:17] <ShiftPlusOne> frikinz, I tend to use the ubuntu/linaro one or the one you mentioned, yeah.
[19:17] <frikinz> ok. I also didn't mention the qemu linaro as I haven't seen any benefit
[19:17] <gordonDrogon> alex88, How are you getting on? Got that LED flashing yet?
[19:17] <ukscone> i just use codesourcery/mentor graphics toolchain as i'm lazy and when i first started using sb2 it was really the only option for toolchain that'd work
[19:18] <ShiftPlusOne> yeah, but not mentor have made it a pain
[19:18] <ukscone> now i just can't be bothered to change as my fingers autotype the wget url
[19:18] <ukscone> was going to say a rude word instead of bothered but i'd get kicked if i did
[19:18] <raspier> ShiftPlusOne: No I have my own toolchain already - just not qemu/scratchbox
[19:19] <ShiftPlusOne> ukscone, can you still download it directly like that? To find the link on their site you have to give them your email and make an account, which is the main reason I avoid it, really.
[19:19] <raspier> ShiftPlusOne: I'd just build it with ct-ng and distcc
[19:20] <ukscone> can someone explain to me why some people insist on using uppercase for filenames for their sourcecode written on windows but mean for linux, it's a right pita having to go through and change everything on case sensitive os's

[19:30] <ShiftPlusOne> Don't have the need for it myself. I am still going between C and C++ and can't decide which one I prefer to use. =/
[19:30] <gordonDrogon> C FTW :)
[19:30] <ukscone> i have no need other than "because it's there"
[19:31] <alex88> gordonDrogon, before, with the 5v to the vcc, it was working fine both led and relay, but tried just one
[19:31] <ShiftPlusOne> ukscone, there are a lot of languages just there, heh.
[19:31] <ukscone> and years ago i meessed with occam & transputers
[19:31] <alex88> and it was on with gpio at 0 and off with gpio at 1
[19:31] <ukscone> friend of a friend at stanford did a lot of occam stuff for his phd
[19:31] <gordonDrogon> urk... I wrote transputer assembler onceuponatime..
[19:32] <ukscone> but he was weird anyway
[19:32] <gordonDrogon> alex88, ok. what's happening is that the 3.3 is not providing enough drive to the LEDs, so you need to reduce the value of the series resistor. if you need on putting 5v into a gpio pin you will destroy it.
[19:32] <gordonDrogon> I did lots of C on transputers too.
[19:32] <ShiftPlusOne> gordonDrogon, yeah, I like C, but it seems like all the major libraries are written to be used with C++. Also, I want to write an SDL/OpenGLES gui library and the OO features really help out a lot.

[19:32] <gordonDrogon> occam was read only for me, although I did write one occam program... to load a C program.
[19:33] <gordonDrogon> guess it depends on what you're used to - and what you need to do.
[19:33] <gordonDrogon> I did once work for a company and spent a year writing C++ for them. really didn't enjoy it..

[19:59] <s5fs> ah..
[19:59] <frikinz> s5fs: yes it's popular. I've done java for 2y in school. then moved to c++. now not programming so much anyway. only perl.
[20:00] <Gorroth> mmm, c++
[20:00] <frikinz> I can't imagine how many people have struggled with cifs error codes in dmesg
[20:00] <s5fs> nice, i'm hoping to spend some time with c++ this year as well

[21:23] <ShiftPlusOne> kgee that won't stop people

[21:24] <kgee> ShiftPlusOne: true, and it's good to have the early adopters bang their head against the wall and get the preliminary work done. Who knows, R-PI model C might have the clout to run it
[21:24] <zezba9000> kgee: I'm trying to port simple games over to pi...
[21:25] <zezba9000> kgee: I think thats a good idea ;)
[21:25] <ShiftPlusOne> there's certainly no model C on the horizon

[21:29] <ShiftPlusOne> [12:29] <plugwash> currently mono DOES NOT work correctly on raspbian
[21:29] <ShiftPlusOne> [12:30] <plugwash> at least the version of mono in the raspbian repos doesn't
[21:29] <zezba9000> ShiftPlusOne: no it does I did it two days ago
[21:29] <ShiftPlusOne> I'd expect him to know, but I guess there are different standards for 'works'
[21:29] <zezba9000> I can write and send you a demo to prove it
[21:29] <ShiftPlusOne> and what 'properly' means might be different too
[21:30] <ShiftPlusOne> no, I beleive you, I guess he's saying that there are certain things that don't.
[21:30] <zezba9000> ya maybe there are some stuff ppl wanted to use that didn't work idk

[21:51] <kgee> speaking of PI and USB power, I've heard a lot about issues with high USB load (more than 120mA, I think?) My question is: "is the pi board providing this limitation, or the power supply?". That is, if I have a 2A power supply going to the PI, does that mitigate the USB power draw issue, or is it caused internally by the PI board?

[21:52] <ShiftPlusOne> then it's revision 2
[21:52] <ShiftPlusOne> there's a polyfuse on the input
[21:52] <kgee> good to know
[21:53] <kgee> the polyfuse is the problem, from what I understand
[21:53] * Mike-N-Go (~Mike-N-Go@ has joined #raspberrypi
[21:53] <ShiftPlusOne> when current exceeds a certain amount, it starts to increase the resistance, until it's essentially an open circuit
[21:53] <ShiftPlusOne> so the voltage starts to drop off and the pi shuts down
[21:54] <kgee> ah, so supplying the PI with more power isn't going to give me more USB power if the polyfuse still freaks out
[21:55] <kgee> (as a 'software guy', the R-PI has really put my electronics knowledge to the test)
[21:55] <ShiftPlusOne> kgee, you can put a 1ohm resistor across the polyfuse or just short it out
[21:56] <ShiftPlusOne> and then you will be limited by the supply
[21:56] <ShiftPlusOne> well, I am off
[21:56] <ShiftPlusOne> 'night

[23:29] <TAFB> thanks :)
[23:29] <sheldor> TAFB: do you have a fixed ip or are you using a CNAME record to a yi.org or something?
[23:30] <sheldor> i mean you cannot set a CNAME in MX right?
[23:30] <TAFB> i'm using a free service from dnsexit.com
[23:30] <sheldor> thats cool
[23:30] <TAFB> it automatically updates all your CNAME, A records, MX records, with your dynamic ip address :)
[23:30] <sheldor> oh
[23:30] <TAFB> works freakin SWEET
[23:30] <sheldor> i see
[23:31] <sheldor> so it catches your actual numeric ip and changes the MX record accordingly every time your ip changes?

[23:31] <sheldor> but doesnt it take hours to propagate?
[23:31] <TAFB> the TTL is set to 1min, so it'll only be down for 60 seconds
[23:31] <TAFB> my IP changes like once a month, so no biggie
[23:31] <sheldor> haha oh cool
[23:32] <TAFB> plus mail servers usually retry a few times on getting a MX: no connect, so I've never ever missed an e-mail due to the dns changing.
[23:32] <sheldor> TAFB: did you consider just setting a CNAME to taft.yi.org and setting no MX at all, hoping that most mail servers will take the CNAME?

[23:33] <TAFB> sheldor: if you go to http://toysareforboys.com then it would change the domain url to tafb.yi.org right?
[23:33] <sheldor> TAFB: no
[23:34] <TAFB> hmmm
[23:34] <sheldor> the domain in the browser stays the same
[23:34] <TAFB> sorry, I'm a DNS noob :)
[23:34] <sheldor> no problem so am i
[23:34] <sheldor> i am still trying to find out whether i can run a mail server without an MX
[23:34] <TAFB> you can not
[23:34] <sheldor> apparently you can with most mail servers
[23:34] <sheldor> because they just take the CNAME
[23:34] <TAFB> when a remote mail server tries to deliver mail to you@joeblow.com and queries joeblow.com for "mx" address and then delivers to that address.
[23:35] <TAFB> oh
[23:35] <sheldor> but i dont know how reliable that is
[23:35] <TAFB> like if MX is missing, the use cname? sweet.
[23:35] <TAFB> never knew that.
[23:35] <sheldor> yeah
[23:35] <TAFB> why don't you have MX records? lol
[23:35] <sheldor> but im not sure which percentage does it
[23:35] <sheldor> TAFB: the problem is you cannot point an MX to a dynamic name
[23:35] <TAFB> just so you know, you can point MX records to a domain name (like tafb.yi.org) even though it says you can NEVER do that.
[23:35] <sheldor> you need a hardcoded IP in the MX (unlinke in the CNAME)
[23:35] <TAFB> I do that, and have never had an issue ;)
[23:35] <sheldor> oh
[23:35] <sheldor> you can?
[23:35] <sheldor> oh

[23:37] <sheldor> i didnt know it works for MX too
[23:38] <sheldor> officially*
[23:38] <TAFB> when I put tafb.yi.org in for CNAME I always go a dns error with godaddy... i'm checking my dns records now

[23:40] <TAFB> cause of no need to at the moment, I use 3rd party SMTP (not through citadel), so didn't feel like getting it forwarding through gmail :)

[23:42] <rikkib> I had to look around

[23:44] <TAFB> rikkib: I am not normal either, my ISP is thinking of dropping me as a customer cause I downloaded 3.8TB last month :( so I might be shopping for a new one. will make sure they don't block port 80 or 25 and offer static ip :)
[23:44] <rikkib> A couple of years ago the govt ISP tossed me... I took them to court.
[23:44] <sheldor> lol what did you dl TAFB
[23:44] <rikkib> I embarrassed them in public even though I lost...
[23:44] <sheldor> TAFB: you mean some isps block incoming 80 for a httpd?
[23:44] <TAFB> I download lots, my friend got 4000p TV so downloaded a few movies for him, they were 600gb each :(
[23:44] <sheldor> wow 4000p
[23:45] <sheldor> rofl
[23:45] <sheldor> 600gb

[23:45] <nickgaw> I just had to call at&t to have them unblock port 25 when I first got my service no issues.
[23:46] <TAFB> lol, I call my ISP "hey, is this port blocked..?" "ARE YOU RUNNING SERVER? WE DELETE YOUR ACCOUNT RIGHT NOW!" lol.
[23:46] <Torikun> dam
[23:46] <Torikun> why do isps hate home servers?
[23:46] <frikinz> Sounds horrible isp to forbid servers
[23:46] <sheldor> its 16:9 so 7111x4000 ~= 28.5 megapixel per frame?
[23:46] <sheldor> rofl
[23:46] <rikkib> Plus... I talk to Vinton Cerf and had him come here of speaking engagements...
[23:46] <rikkib> on speaking
[23:47] <nickgaw> have never heard of that. I meant they blocked me from using port 25 for sending to other smtp servers then at&t server that is what they unblocked.
[23:47] <rikkib> and pushing ipv6
[23:47] <sheldor> thats like 12 x 1080p
[23:47] <TAFB> my ISP says it's a security risk, someone hacks into my server and loads up child porn and makes spam bot = they are reponsible.
[23:47] <Torikun> uverse nickgaw?
[23:47] <nickgaw> well in a way they do have a point.
[23:47] <TAFB> sheldor: I'll try and find the official spec for you :)

[23:48] <sheldor> oh!
[23:48] <sheldor> okay
[23:49] <sheldor> thats like 2 x 1080p
[23:49] <TAFB> nickgaw: use the wifi config program in lxde/xwindows = easy.
[23:49] <sheldor> still not bad
[23:49] <TAFB> sheldor: yeah, but the bitrate :( omfg :(
[23:49] <rikkib> http://krebsonsecurity.com/tag/peter-bennett/ you may have already seen this
[23:49] <sheldor> TAFB: but then why is it 600gb per movie?
[23:49] <rikkib> This is how seriously I take security
[23:49] <sheldor> 1080p isnt 300gb per movie
[23:49] <nickgaw> then tell me what command do I run to connect it to my encrypted network or what file do I put the network name and key into for wlan0 as no manual exists for this?
[23:49] <sheldor> even with highest bitrate
[23:50] <rikkib> And as I said I know Vinton Cerf... All security info goes back to him and his team
[23:50] <TAFB> nickgaw: it lets you set it up all in the config. wpa key, etc.
[23:50] <rikkib> The article is a bit incorrect... Media makes a story
[23:51] <nickgaw> is this in X or the console as I am using the console over ssh and would like to remove my network cable?

[23:54] <TAFB> etc.
[23:54] <frikinz> nickgaw: /etc/network/interfaces and /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf are the 2 files you need. then ifup wlan0 and ifdown wlan0 to set up/down the wlan interface
[23:54] <sheldor> TAFB: i didnt try yet but i read it
[23:54] <nickgaw> are there any console commands that use dialog to setup my wireless network name and key for autoconnecting at boot?
[23:54] <sheldor> TAFB: you just have to put your tafb.yi.org into the CNAME
[23:55] <sheldor> and nothing else
[23:55] <TAFB> sheldor: ahhh :) nice to know. if it works I will move my name servers from dnsexit back to godaddy and configure cname with my modem ID.
[23:55] <TAFB> sheldor: so like what, "CNAME" "@" "tafb.yi.org"?
[23:55] <sheldor> rikkib: dude are you peter bennett?
[23:56] <rikkib> No point running a mail server on dynamic ip... Many mail servers will not connect to a mail server without rDNS
[23:56] <sheldor> TAFB: i dont know what the @ is but you write "tafb.yi.org" into the CNAME record for your domain
