[0:08] <nextime> hello all.
[0:09] <nextime> i'm investigating to use an rpi to build a device that will have to drive a relay and it will need an usb wifi dongle
[0:10] <nextime> as i have strict space constrain, i'm searching a very compact power supply to vconvert 230AC -> 5VDC

[0:10] * skope (skope@psykedelia.org) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:10] <nextime> how is the minimal amperage i can consider to to those things in you opinion?
[0:10] * NIN101 (~NIN@p5DD28EA1.dip0.t-ipconnect.de) Quit (Quit: NIN101)
[0:11] <nextime> ( also, can 900mA be enough to power the rpi + the wifi?
[0:11] <nextime> )
[0:11] <skope> is that true that there's 10A relay in the rpi?
[0:12] <double-you> not sure, I've seen wifi adapters between 100 and 500 mA
[0:12] <nextime> double-you : yes, but many of them can set power to a low 100mA
[0:13] <xrosnight> double-you: how did you measure it ?
[0:13] <scummos> skope: 10A ... relay?
[0:13] <pksato> gpio can not drive relay coil direct.
[0:13] <nextime> skope : i will put a 16A one
[0:13] <nextime> :D
[0:13] <skope> scummos: yes, relay
[0:14] <scummos> why would it have that
[0:14] <nextime> anyway
[0:14] <scummos> why would it have a relay at all?
[0:14] <double-you> I have a similar problem and been looking for adapters about 16 hours on the internet ;)
[0:14] <scummos> I don't think it has one, which part should that be on the board
[0:14] <scummos> also did you hear it clicking, I didn't ;p
[0:14] <skope> i think i read somewhere that it has. but i guess i can use pins to give signal to external relay if needed
[0:14] <nextime> i'm reading the rpi model B needs 3.5W, so, 900mA shoul be enough to power both
[0:15] * rolleiflex (~rolleifle@ has joined #raspberrypi
[0:15] <scummos> skope: you can look at the schematics if you really want. but you can also look at the board and see that there's no part there which could be a relay
[0:15] <nextime> skope: there are no relays on the rpi, you CAN add a relay and drive it on a GPIO
[0:15] <nextime> and it is what i'm doing
[0:15] <skope> scummos: true.
[0:15] <skope> nextime: yeah, that's what i thought of doing
[0:16] <pksato> sheach for shields for arduino.
[0:16] <skope> no idea yet what for though :)
[0:16] <nextime> also
[0:16] <skope> lights maybe
[0:16] * rolleiflex (~rolleifle@ Quit (Client Quit)
[0:16] * pizthewiz (~pizthewiz@108-252-136-39.lightspeed.sntcca.sbcglobal.net) Quit (Quit: pizthewiz)
[0:16] <nextime> the usb on the rpi is just 100mA max, it isn't?
[0:18] * aphadke (~Adium@c-71-198-5-34.hsd1.ca.comcast.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:18] <shiftplusone> pi won't take 900mA, btw.
[0:18] <shiftplusone> actually I should check the polufse datasheet before making that claim, but I am pretty sure it trips at 750mA
[0:18] <nextime> so, 3.5W at 5V are 400mA
[0:18] <pksato> usb ports on REV1 have polyfuses limiting @140mA
[0:18] <pksato> REV2 dont have.
[0:18] <nextime> shiftplusone : 750mA fully loaded with usb ports i imagine
[0:19] <nextime> as somewhere i found claiming 3.5W
[0:19] * aphadke (~Adium@c-71-198-5-34.hsd1.ca.comcast.net) Quit (Client Quit)
[0:19] <nextime> and 3.5W at 5V are 400mA

[0:20] <nextime> ops
[0:20] <nextime> wrong
[0:20] * Gordio (~Gordio@ has joined #raspberrypi
[0:20] <nextime> 3.5 are 700mA sorry
[0:20] <nextime> anyway
[0:20] <nextime> i have 200 more mA on my power supply
[0:20] <nextime> and 200mA should be enough to power the wifi
[0:23] * Torikun ordered his third pie today
[0:23] <skope> apple pie
[0:23] <TAFB> congrats :)
[0:23] <TAFB> how's mine workin for ya :)
[0:23] <Torikun> ty TAFB
[0:23] <Torikun> filesystem corruption
[0:23] <Torikun> lost my database
[0:23] <double-you> nextime: I can only refer to http://elinux.org/RPi_VerifiedPeripherals#Working_USB_Wi-Fi_Adapters
[0:23] <Torikun> had to restore from backup today
[0:23] <TAFB> oh damn! on that 16gb card I gave ya?
[0:24] <Torikun> no, i have that with a copy of the OS for backups
[0:24] <nextime> i will use that one: http://it.farnell.com/element14/wipi/dongle-wifi-usb-for-raspberry-pi/dp/2133900
[0:24] <TAFB> ahhh nice
[0:24] <Torikun> MIght have to switch to your card now lol
[0:24] * [SLB] is now known as [SLB]`
[0:24] * nils_2 (~nils_2@unaffiliated/nils-2/x-2480262) Quit (Quit: WeeChat 0.4.0-rc2)
[0:24] <TAFB> yeah, the card I gave ya is supposed to be pro level card, extra reliable (so says canon) :)
[0:25] <Torikun> lol
[0:25] <Torikun> =)
[0:25] <pksato> http://www.susa.net/wordpress/2012/06/raspberry-pi-relay-using-gpio/
[0:25] <Torikun> Sucks when you do a reboot remotely and it does not come back up lol
[0:25] * rikkib only has solid core cat5e cable and has run out of patch cables... Guess it will have to do... Now where is my compression tool and rj45 connectors.
[0:25] <xzr> well
[0:25] <xzr> it's easy with the pi
[0:25] <TAFB> pksato: I want to make a fireworks controller that runs on the I2C bus or whatever, need to control about 250 relays :)
[0:25] <xzr> but when the server you're rebooting is across the ocean
[0:26] <xzr> you start to get sweaty
[0:26] <pksato> http://raspberrypihobbyist.blogspot.com.br/2012/10/revision-to-relay-circuit.html
[0:26] <xzr> :D
[0:26] <Torikun> lol @ xzr
[0:26] <pksato> 250?
[0:26] <TAFB> Torikun: I'm mounting a Pi, up in a tree, on solar power!!! Be interesting to see how it does
[0:26] <Torikun> Take pics TAFB =)
[0:27] * dr_willis (~dr_willis@2601:d:a180:2b:ba27:ebff:fee3:3bd5) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:27] <Torikun> Blog about it on my site =)
[0:27] <TAFB> will do, I'm just waiting for the solar panel and batteries to arrive :)
[0:27] <dr_willis> If you hook your batteries up backwards to a solar panel... do they glow?
[0:27] <dr_willis> ;P
[0:27] <TAFB> lol
[0:28] <TAFB> the solar panel can put out 4.2amps at 5v in full sun, so it should keep the Pi and batteries topped up for great runtimes, even with a string of crappy weather.
[0:29] <TAFB> I've got 27,200mah of battery power, but unsure how long that'll run the Pi + USB WiFi + webcam for :)
[0:29] * |Jeroen| (~jeroen@d5153E72C.access.telenet.be) Quit (Quit: Toedels)
[0:29] * Bretos (~bretos@ has joined #raspberrypi
[0:29] <pksato> TAFB: you need 16 of this https://www.adafruit.com/products/732
[0:29] <double-you> TAFB: I doubt that any solar panel can do this without electronics
[0:29] <Gordio> 27A/h? O_O
[0:29] <Gordio> TAFB, show battery image :D
[0:30] <dr_willis> I got a battery for my Cellphone that says its 12000mAh@3.7V 44.4Wh
[0:30] <TAFB> double-you: what do you mean, without electronics? They have regulated 5v output each (1.1 amps), four of them together :)
[0:30] * Yachtsman (~Yachtsman@173-106-32-222.pools.spcsdns.net) Quit (Quit: gogo)
[0:30] <TAFB> Gordio: It's running on 8 of these batteries: http://www.ebay.ca/itm/10pcs-Panasonic-3-6V-3400mAh-NCR18650B-18650-Li-ion-Battery-Made-In-JAPAN-New-/221175245553?pt=US_Rechargeable_Batteries&hash=item337f126af1
[0:30] * aphadke (~Adium@c-71-198-5-34.hsd1.ca.comcast.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:31] <TAFB> four of those batteries are in two of these devices: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Dual-USB-5V-2A-Mobile-Power-Supply-18650-Battery-Charger-box-iphone-4s-5-/170922278103?pt=PDA_Accessories&hash=item27cbc2fcd7
[0:31] <Torikun> what will your pi do at night time then TAFB
[0:31] <Torikun> it will die right
[0:31] * aphadke (~Adium@c-71-198-5-34.hsd1.ca.comcast.net) has left #raspberrypi
[0:31] <Gordio> Oh... :) And 8 beateries connect paralel?
[0:31] <TAFB> they accept the 5v from the solar panels and charge the batteries, and when the fun goes down, it switches to battery power
[0:31] <TAFB> Gordio: yeppers :)
[0:31] <Torikun> Nice
[0:31] <Torikun> how much are the solar panels
[0:31] <double-you> TAFB: without voltage peaks or other distortion? ;)
[0:31] * lupinedk is now known as Lupinedk
[0:32] <TAFB> My super crazy solar panel is $200, fully regulated 5v output ;)
[0:32] <Torikun> lol
[0:32] <Torikun> dam
[0:32] <Torikun> why spend all this
[0:32] <TAFB> http://imageshack.us/a/img708/8146/img4167eg.jpg
[0:32] <double-you> hehe ok
[0:33] * revele (~john.doe@d54C2B7B3.access.telenet.be) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:33] <TAFB> Torikun: I'm setting up a proof of concept system for the local police agency. They need to power and monitor some cameras remotely over cellular network.
[0:34] * Bretos (~bretos@ Quit (Quit: leaving)
[0:34] <dr_willis> Video monitoring the local house of.. err... ladies.. ;)
[0:35] <shapr> TAFB: nice!
[0:35] <TAFB> rofl
[0:35] <pksato> 16 relays http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8X6PgYaegz0
[0:35] <double-you> my 50 watts solar panel can't do 500mA during the day
[0:35] <shapr> TAFB: Have you considered supercaps instead?
[0:35] <TAFB> shapr: I have not, got a link? I need massive backup power in case we get bad weather for a few days in a row :)
[0:36] <shapr> Ok, batteries are a better choice.
[0:36] * Bretos (~bretos@ has joined #raspberrypi
[0:36] * Syliss (~Home@adsl-108-201-88-85.dsl.chi2ca.sbcglobal.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:36] <shapr> I don't know the leakage over time of supercapacitors, but it's definitely greater than that of batteries.
[0:36] * egrouse (~newb@unaffiliated/egrouse) Quit (Quit: Computer has gone to sleep.)
[0:36] <TAFB> yeah, those panasonic 3400mah 18650's are absolute MONSTERS for power for their size! Easily put out over 3400mah every time too :)
[0:36] <shapr> The advantage is that supercaps don't lose capacity.
[0:37] * gr4yscale (~gr4yscale@107-1-54-178-ip-static.hfc.comcastbusiness.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:37] <TAFB> yeah, these will only be installed for around a month at a time, so technically 30 charge/discharge cycles :)
[0:37] * Gordio (~Gordio@ Quit (Quit: leaving)

[0:44] <shapr> TAFB: Won't cell phone data be very slow? Unless you have 4G?
[0:45] <Serano> HSDAP+ is pretty fast tbh
[0:45] <TAFB> shapr: We have LTE here? 70mbps download and 20mbps upload.
[0:45] <shapr> oh!
[0:45] <Serano> hsdpa+
[0:46] * shapr (~shapr@c-69-137-26-149.hsd1.al.comcast.net) Quit (Quit: coffee shop time!)
[0:46] <TAFB> and kinda unrelated, but I upgraded my ISP account today to the 175mbps package! woot! http://www.speedtest.net/result/2429595216.png
[0:46] <TAFB> they say they will have 300mbps in the next few months :)
[0:46] * m8 (~mor@unaffiliated/m8) Quit (Quit: Sto andando via)
[0:47] <skope> i have only 24/1. the best i can get
[0:47] * Gordio (~Gordio@ has joined #raspberrypi

[0:47] <TAFB> yikes
[0:48] * bizarro_1 (~bizarro_1@241.Red-193-152-190.dynamicIP.rima-tde.net) Quit (Ping timeout: 248 seconds)
[0:48] <skope> but atleast it's stable. i had 100/5 cable in my previous apartment and it disconnected once every few hours
[0:49] <TAFB> skope: I was having that problem too, and they came and ran a new cable from my house to the box at the end of the street, and it's been rock solid ever since! I had 31 days uptime prior to me having to reboot it today to activate the new speed package
[0:50] * bizarro_1 (~bizarro_1@241.Red-193-152-190.dynamicIP.rima-tde.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:51] <skope> TAFB: i had decibels measured from the socket, switched router few times and tried with different hardware, but still the same. guess there was something further
[0:51] * Goleif (Goleif@ has left #raspberrypi
[0:51] * Gordio (~Gordio@ has joined #raspberrypi
[0:52] <skope> TAFB: i wasn't the only one with that behavior in the neighbourhood

[0:53] <skope> TAFB: but cable is always cable. i prefer adsl because of it's stability
[0:54] <TAFB> here it was the opposite, I had DSL and it always up and down :( http://www.speedtest.net/result/1747705636.png
[0:54] <skope> TAFB: but i have 24/1 and dslam is so far away that i get basically 14/1, so meh
[0:54] <TAFB> i loved the fast upload speed, but I just couldn't take it anymore and canceled it :(
[0:55] <skope> i would kill for a fiber
[0:55] <skope> 100/100 thank you
[0:55] <TAFB> my friend just moved here: http://www.greenlightnc.com/about/internet/
[0:55] <TAFB> Wilson, NC
[0:55] <TAFB> insane fast speeds, unlimited bandwidth

[0:56] <skope> i've never got limited bandwidths
[0:56] <skope> we in finland never have limits
[0:56] * FredNick (~fred@ has joined #raspberrypi
[0:56] <skope> not in mobile broadband or ordinary
[0:57] <TAFB> nice! I only get 360gb/month, then my ISP charges me extra. I usually do around 3TB a month, so my bill is always $100/mo higher :(
[0:57] * cheesepi (ae36bfb9@gateway/web/freenode/ip. Quit (Quit: Page closed)
[0:57] * Gordio can have only 64KBit/s
[0:58] <TAFB> Gordio needs to move
[0:58] <Gordio> True; :)
[0:58] <skope> i have 2M mobile broadband with no limit and then that adsl
[0:58] * Hopsy (~Hopsy@unaffiliated/hopsy) Quit (Quit: KVIrc 4.0.4 Insomnia http://www.kvirc.net/)
[0:59] <Serano> 120/5 and i can download between 500GB-1.2TB depending on when I download
[0:59] <skope> but back to topic, i was surprised that rpi played 1080p flawless
[1:00] <skope> speaking of limits. i had german virtual server with 5T monthly bandwith. apparently isp got frustrated for me almost using that limit every month and accused me of having child porn in the server
[1:00] <skope> there never was anything, but they didn't want to argue with me
[1:01] <skope> and wiped the server without chance of making up-to-date backups
[1:01] <IT_Sean> :o
[1:01] <Serano> well if it was a big vps provider i'm surprised by that, because that is more or less buying a professional service
[1:02] <skope> Serano: it was pretty big. but not continuing my contract there anymore. mostly good service, but that was too much
[1:02] <Serano> i have my dedicated server now with hetzner. Pretty low price for a 100Mbit with 10TB outgoing
[1:02] <Serano> and they have never complained so far.
[1:04] <skope> i have mine at edis gmbh
[1:04] * pizthewiz (~pizthewiz@108-252-136-39.lightspeed.sntcca.sbcglobal.net) Quit (Quit: pizthewiz)
[1:05] <Serano> the bargain was too good for me. I was paying 39 euros for 512 2cpu vps for over 4 years. Had this i7 2600K 32GB and 2x3TB RAID 0 for 59
[1:06] <Serano> the downside was moving from holland to germany for hosting since the peering between BE-NL is better than with DE
[1:06] <Serano> but overall happy with it

[1:08] * Aranel (~Aranel@unaffiliated/aranel) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:08] <Serano> hehe goodnight skope, see you around
[1:08] <skope> Serano: i said that i should, not that i would
[1:09] <Aranel> /opt/vc/bin/vcgencmd: error while loading shared libraries: libvcos.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
[1:09] <Aranel> where does it look for libvcos.so by default?
[1:09] <skope> maybe i will setup my arch again. deleted wrong partition when installing raspbian to sd card
[1:09] <Aranel> it was working okay 10 minutes ago, now it suddenly not working for www-data, but works for pi.
[1:09] <TomWij> Aranel: LD_LIBRARY_PATH should contain /opt/vc/lib I believe
[1:10] * linovia (~textual@put92-4-82-231-49-9.fbx.proxad.net) Quit (Quit: ["Textual IRC Client: www.textualapp.com"])
[1:10] <Aranel> TomWij: could I give that to a user without bashrc?
[1:10] <shiftplusone> Aranel, are you running arch?
[1:10] <Aranel> shiftplusone: nope, Raspbmc
[1:11] <Aranel> as an headless server :)
[1:11] <shiftplusone> I guess it's the same error anyway. Yeah, just make sure that variable is set. Currently there's a bug in glibc which prevents ld.so.cache from being used properly.
[1:12] * mgottschlag (~quassel@reactos/tester/phoenix64) Quit (Ping timeout: 260 seconds)
[1:12] <shiftplusone> Seems to be linaro's fault, but the bug is not present in the version of libc that raspbian is using.
[1:12] <Aranel> thing is, that variable isn't set for user 'pi' but it works, but for some reason it doesn't for 'www-data'
[1:12] <shiftplusone> ....really? O_o
[1:13] <Aranel> can I set it for an user without bashrc? It runs the calls as sudo -u www-data /opt/vc/bin/vcgencmd
[1:13] <shiftplusone> if you type echo $LD_LIBRARY_PATH as user pi you don't see anything?
[1:13] * exobuzz (~buzz@2001:470:9773:0:f007:d0ed:ff3d:246a) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:13] <Aranel> shiftplusone: a blank line
[1:13] <shiftplusone> you can sudo LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/vc/lib whatevercommand and that should work
[1:14] * Syliss (~Home@adsl-108-201-88-85.dsl.chi2ca.sbcglobal.net) Quit (Quit: Syliss)
[1:14] <shiftplusone> actually, that doesn't seem to work =/
[1:14] <shiftplusone> hm
[1:14] <Aranel> it prints the "usage" output, thinks I don't know how to use sudo
[1:15] <shiftplusone> I am just curious how raspbmc got around the bug =/
[1:15] <Aranel> it's weird that pi and www-data both don't have that line but pi works, and www-data worked 10 mins ago, but not now.
[1:16] <shiftplusone> can you check which version of libc raspbmc is using?
[1:17] <shiftplusone> (ldd --version) should do it
[1:17] <Aranel> ldd (Debian EGLIBC 2.13-35) 2.13
[1:17] <skope> is there any major tweaks in raspbian compared to pure debian?
[1:17] <shiftplusone> skope, just compiled in a way that's optimized for the pi hardware.
[1:18] <shiftplusone> hardfloat and all that
[1:18] <shiftplusone> Aranel, ah ok, then it's not caused by the bug I was talking about, that version is unaffected.
[1:18] <skope> shiftplusone: okay. maybe i will stick with raspbian then and remove all the bloat
[1:18] <shiftplusone> actually i lied, that's exactly the version that's not working, my mistake
[1:19] <shiftplusone> skope, you can start with a minimal image or bootstrap a clean one if you know what you're doing.
[1:19] <skope> shiftplusone: clean one would be nice. just install what i need

[1:48] <linuxstb> Aranel: It should work because /etc/ld.so.conf contains /opt/vc/lib/ (at least it does on Raspbian, via an include)
[1:49] <Aranel> linuxstb: and so why it wouldn't on other user? (www-data)
[1:50] <linuxstb> Aranel: Sorry, I haven't read all the backlog. You're saying it works for the Pi user, but not www-data?
[1:50] <Aranel> linuxstb: yes, it works for user "pi" but doesn't for "www-data"
[1:51] <Aranel> linuxstb: worked it around by ln -s /opt/vc/lib/libvcos.so /usr/lib, for some reason, www-data looks for there

[1:53] <Aranel> linuxstb: it was working for me too, then it suddenly stopped. I wasn't even using my pi.
[1:54] <linuxstb> Have you tried re-running ldconfig (as root) ?
[1:55] <Aranel> linuxstb: didn't. but now worked it around with symbolic links, so I won't know even if it starts working again or not :)

[1:55] <shiftplusone> linuxstb, https://bugs.launchpad.net/raspbian/+bug/1051459 This affects archlinux right now.
[1:57] <shiftplusone> linuxstb, I am told this affects pretty much all HF arm linux builds actually. Raspbian is using an older version of libc that is unaffected, it seems. Even when ldconfid -p finds the libs, the issue still occurs. I am not sure if that's the issue in Arnel's case though.

[6:48] <UnaClocker> Quiet in here tonight..
[6:49] <UnaClocker> I wish my lapdock adapters would get here, I want my Raspberry Pi laptop.. :)
[6:49] <dniMretsaM> very quiet, UnaClocker
[6:49] <miyo> it's mid-day here :P
[6:50] <dniMretsaM> it's 00:49 where I am
[6:50] <dr_willis> 1 am here
[6:50] <ParkerR_> UnaClocker, Oooh it's so nice
[6:50] <dr_willis> i dont even know what i would do with a Pi Laptop ;)
[6:50] <ParkerR_> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yc1-kOtgdVw UnaClocker
[6:50] <dr_willis> im using my phone for irc/surfing/stuff and i can ssh into my pi
[6:50] <dniMretsaM> I wanted to build a Pi laptop using an e-paper screen
[6:51] <dr_willis> i still havent seen any e-paper monitors.
[6:51] <UnaClocker> ParkerR_: hehe, you desoldered the composite video connector too.. ;)
[6:51] <dr_willis> got a Kindle Paperwhite the other day finally foind them at the stores
[6:51] <ParkerR_> :)
[6:51] <ParkerR_> UnaClocker, Never use it
[6:51] <ParkerR_> So I was like
[6:52] <dniMretsaM> dr_willis: that's the problem
[6:52] <UnaClocker> Yeah..
[6:52] <ParkerR_> Plop it's gone
[6:52] <dniMretsaM> the idea was something I could use for coding and not have any eyestrain or whatever.
[6:52] <dr_willis> i did see some mod/hack to get a terminal/shell on a kindle into a pi. but it seemed sort of a bother
[6:52] <dniMretsaM> and it would have just been a cool project
[6:52] <dr_willis> but it usedd the kindle keybord.
[6:52] <UnaClocker> Ahh, it's got sound? Cool, I had read that it didn't.. Bad sound is better than no sound.
[6:53] <ParkerR_> UnaClocker, Yeah. Tinny but it works
[6:53] <dniMretsaM> the Kindleberry Pi seemed like way more trouble than it was worth. also, it had no color (for syntax highlighting)
[6:54] <ParkerR_> Umm
[6:54] <ParkerR_> Obvious no color
[6:54] <dr_willis> ;)
[6:54] <ParkerR_> It's a black and white e-ink screen :P
[6:54] <dniMretsaM> hopefully I'll be able to get my hands on a color epaper screen and a driver board sometime soon
[6:54] <dr_willis> grey is a color!
[6:54] <dniMretsaM> ParkerR_: there are color epaper screens
[6:55] <ParkerR_> I know
[6:55] <dr_willis> cant say ive ever seen a color eink display

[6:55] <dr_willis> then again the only ones ive seen are on the book readers
[6:56] <dniMretsaM> since the technology is apparently in such high demand, the companies that make them like E-Ink, LG Display, etc. don't want to talk unless you have millions to spend
[6:57] <dniMretsaM> which I obviously don't, lol
[6:57] <UnaClocker> There's always the Sharp memory display.. Not quite as good as e-ink, but close..

[6:59] <dniMretsaM> UnaClocker: well, the idea was for something that didn't use LCD. but those are cool displays
[6:59] <cellofellow> what applications or settings are needed to play XviD or H.264 video on a Pi with the hardware acceleration?
[6:59] <cellofellow> I'm using Raspbian, btw.
[6:59] <cellofellow> I know for VC-1 and MPEG2 a license key is needed but I'm not so concerned about that atm.
[7:00] <ParkerR_> cellofellow, omxplayer
[7:00] <ParkerR_> Or XBMC if you can get it running
[7:00] <cellofellow> omxplayer, ok.
[7:01] <UnaClocker> I just have the RaspBMC distro installed on an old spare 2gb SD Card..
[7:01] <cellofellow> Now, I see a lot of talk about the H.264 support, but xvid is supported too, right?
[7:01] <UnaClocker> Easiest way to run XBMC on the Pi..
[7:01] <UnaClocker> xvid is h.264
[7:01] * cellofellow needs more SD cards.
[7:01] <cellofellow> UnaClocker: uh, no
[7:01] * miyo (~mit@unaffiliated/miyo) Quit (Quit: Fly me to the moon)
[7:03] <cellofellow> xvid is mpeg 4 part 2, a format far inferior to MPEG 4 Part 10 (that's the ISO designation for the ITU's H.264)
[7:03] <cellofellow> But, it's still popular.
[7:04] <UnaClocker> Well I have a ton of video labeled xvid, around 700mb in size per movie, and they all play fine on the Pi.. So it's apparently close enough to h.264 to be hardware decoded.
[7:04] <UnaClocker> All old SD stuff..
[7:05] * miyo (~mit@unaffiliated/miyo) has joined #raspberrypi
[7:05] <_yac_> xvid is still mpeg4 even if its a more "basic" type of mpeg4. so most decoders will happily decode that stuff(exceptions apply, such as GMC)

[7:32] <ParkerR_> lickalott, What are you wanting to do with the old card?
[7:37] <mythril> is anyone here running xrdp and have the clipboard working?
[7:41] <UnaClocker> lickalott: I assume you want to use it in windows again? There's a disk management tool somewhere under admin tools in Windows..
[7:41] <UnaClocker> You need to remove the old linux partition, and the small FAT32 partition, so you can create one windows friendly partition..

[8:06] <ParkerR_> Hmm
[8:06] <[deXter]> It's a 7port, comes with a 3500Amp charger
[8:06] <[deXter]> or was it 3200A
[8:06] <ParkerR_> 700mAh is almsot what the B pulls just by itself
[8:06] <bonks> ParkerR_: Yeah, isn't that currently the max?
[8:07] <ParkerR_> Min
[8:07] <ParkerR_> More if you have USB devices attached to the Pi's

[8:45] <dr_willis> get a stack of Xmas box;s that look like a xmas tree.. stick a pi in each box. ;)

[11:32] <TAFB> the cellular network is very flaky, so of course then it would need to store on SD card then transmit stored images once cellular is back up
[11:33] <roaster> can't you conside a solar powered hard drive as well, the ones with an external additional usb power
[11:33] <TAFB> I was thinking about storing the images on ramdrive and using script to upload them via FTP, delete after successful transfer, then would save the read/writes.

[11:34] <Triffid_Hunter> TAFB: tmpfs is a swap-backed ramfs, very handy for that sort of thing
[11:34] <TAFB> Triffid_Hunter: ohhhh nice :)
[11:35] <Triffid_Hunter> TAFB: having the kernel itself decide whether to write to disk or keep in ram is awesome, just make sure you do actually delete the files after a while and that you have enough swap for your worst-case scenario
[11:35] <TAFB> yeah, I will make a monster size swap file on the 32gb SD card just in case, thanks for the info! I'll for sure try it.
[11:36] <TAFB> Is there a way to make sure tempfs goes to ram FIRST, and not swap, or it does that automatically?
[11:36] <Triffid_Hunter> TAFB: it does that automatically
[11:36] <TAFB> woot :) spiffy
[11:36] <Triffid_Hunter> TAFB: make sure you have heaps of free ram, tmpfs shows up as disk cache in memory readouts
[11:36] <Triffid_Hunter> so if applications eat the ram, kernel starts dumping to disk
[11:37] <TAFB> ahhh. I will check on memory usage of "motion" and cut down everything else for max free ram.
[11:39] <roaster> set the GPU to minimal ram usage as well :D
[11:40] <roaster> if not already done
[11:40] <TAFB> i set it to 1mb, but seems it still uses 16 ;)
[11:40] <roaster> 16 is the minimum :D
[11:41] <TAFB> bummer ;)
[11:41] <roaster> I need a faster SD card writer! damnit!
[11:41] <TAFB> anyone have a link to the specs of the new model A? Can't seem to find it on rpi.org :(
[11:41] <Triffid_Hunter> I recall an article somewhere about someone who used his video ram as an ultrafast swap file when Xorg wasn't using it via some kernel trickery

[12:15] <Ben64> you're logged in.... so log out

[12:28] <morphles> ie when in omxplayer it seems you can get to other tty but not see anything, then input goes to that tty, and omxplayer does not get any input.... and then you can wonder wtf is going on
[12:28] <Ben64> what
[12:28] * redarrow (~quassel@unaffiliated/redarrow) Quit (Ping timeout: 248 seconds)
[12:28] <morphles> does not happen with dosbox though, you can leave dosbox tty and see other ttys normaly
[12:28] <morphles> Ben64: try this:log in into tty1 and tty2
[12:29] <morphles> on tty1 start omxplay with some video
[12:29] <morphles> then pres ctrl alt f2
[12:29] <morphles> then type someting
[12:29] <morphles> then ctrl alt f1 then qutie omxplayer
[12:29] <morphles> then got and see that your keypresses ended up in tty 2
[12:29] <Ben64> yeah, thats normal
[12:30] <morphles> not for me :
[12:31] <morphles> imo it is not normal to see where you are and what you are typing, and for application running not in graphical environment not get input while it is visble, that does not seem like normal
[12:31] <user82> hi. i see that every GPIO pin function is determined by 3 bits. according to datasheet: "The function select registers are used to define the operation of the general-purpose I/O
[12:31] <user82> pins. Each of the 54 GPIO pins has at least two alternative functions as defined in section
[12:31] <user82> 16.2"
[12:31] <Ben64> but it is normal
[12:31] <user82> where do i find what the three bits mean?
[12:32] <user82> section 16.2 is not in the datasheet?
[12:32] <morphles> lets see if mplayer shows video in tty with prop nvidi driver, so that I could test how normal this is :)
[12:33] <user82> oh section 6.2...sorry to ask
[12:35] <Ben64> morphles: you can't compare raspberry pi to your computer
[12:35] <morphles> Nah it seems ai cant test that right now, anyways that does not seem normal at all, esp considering that dosbox does not do that
[12:35] <morphles> Ben64: sure i can :)
[12:35] <morphles> And I can compere dosbox to omxplayer

[12:35] <morphles> on pi
[12:35] <Ben64> no
[12:35] <morphles> it all because of hw decoder isint it? :)
[12:36] <mjr> Probably. It bypasses the normal linux framebuffer with the playback.
[12:36] <morphles> Most likelly
[12:36] <morphles> using mplayr(ofc video is unwatchable) i can switch between ttys
[12:37] * wiiguy (~fake@unaffiliated/wiiguy) has joined #raspberrypi
[12:37] <morphles> And what is most annying that omxplayer does not seem to have normal suspension ability
[12:37] <Ben64> it's not a car
[12:37] <morphles> its not but most normal applicatiosn can be suspend
[12:37] <morphles> so yeah
[12:38] <Ben64> what do you mean "can be suspend"
[12:38] <morphles> ctrl+z stops application return to shell
[12:38] <Ben64> that works on omxplayer
[12:39] <morphles> OK lets try again, maybe I did not investigate it enough again :(
[12:39] <Ben64> [1]+ Stopped omxplayer
[12:39] <morphles> Not for me

[12:40] <morphles> I get frame hangin and not seeing anything apart from that frame
[12:40] <Ben64> probably because you can't see behind it
[12:40] <Ben64> :)
[12:40] <morphles> yeah well i really would like to :)
[12:40] <morphles> Ben64: what distribution are you using?
[12:40] <Ben64> use a remote shell
[12:41] <Ben64> currently debian
[12:41] <Xark> Try ^Z and then type "bg" to run the suspended process in the background. If you then later run "fg" you will reconnect.
[12:41] <morphles> Well I use pi instead of my main machine most of the time in recent days, so nowhere to remote from without additional boot up
[12:41] <morphles> Xark: so ill sy video runing and no shell?:)
[12:41] <Ben64> morphles: smartphone?
[12:41] <Xark> morphles: You get a new shell when you ^Z
[12:42] <Ben64> Xark: you can't see behind the video though
[12:42] <morphles> Xark: no you get old shell
[12:42] <Xark> Oh, with video overlay. I see the problem. :)
[12:42] <morphles> :)
[12:42] <Ben64> thats why remote shells are good

[12:43] <morphles> yeah I know that, but I dont really have a smart phone(nor I want one), and I do not want to to boot my main to just "unhang" pi
[12:43] <Ben64> you can "unhang" it from pi
[12:44] <Ben64> nothing you've described is out of the ordinary or unrecoverable from the pi
[12:44] <morphles> Yeah i Understand, but hard to do stuff when you cant see anything :
[12:44] <Ben64> meh typing is easy
[12:44] <morphles> I should connect mini lcd to gipos to show tty and line
[12:44] <morphles> Ben64: if you accidentally switched ttys :)
[12:44] <morphles> not too good
[12:45] <Ben64> how do you accidentally CTRL+ALT+F3 or something
[12:45] <morphles> happens :)
[12:45] <Ben64> you should be able to log in without seeing still
[12:45] <morphles> I often swithch between ttys
[12:45] <morphles> yeas i can doo that
[12:45] <morphles> then you suggest killall omxplayer? :)

[12:49] <roaster> maybe your SD card is dying?

[12:53] <fayimora> not even sure what's happening. Have had this from day one(4-5weeks) and still can't fix it
[12:53] <roaster> fayimora: you sure you have all the right codecs for your films
[12:54] <roaster> rolleiflex, not sure how to remove empty space
[12:54] <fayimora> roaster: don't know war that means :(
[12:54] <fayimora> the files are all AVIs
[12:54] <double-you> roaster: when do you start with the speed-test? :-)
[12:54] <[deXter]> fayimora, How/what are you using to play the videos?
[12:54] <fayimora> [deXter]: xbmc
[12:55] <roaster> lol double-you not sure what's going on... so far not getting any wlan interface up :S
[12:55] <[deXter]> fayimora, How?
[12:55] <[deXter]> fayimora, I mean xbmc on raspbian or xbmcubuntu or openelec or Arch?
[12:55] <fayimora> Just select them and that's it..not sure i ind the question
[12:55] <fayimora> oh on Raspbian
[12:55] <[deXter]> fayimora, if you're using Raspbian, just use omxplayer.. that's the best
[12:55] <[deXter]> If you want to use XBMC though, use OpenELEC
[12:56] <roaster> what about raspbmc?
[12:56] <[deXter]> not as good
[12:56] <[deXter]> OpenELEC is highly optimised
[12:56] <rolleiflex> thanks roaster
[12:56] <roaster> ah, good to know for next project ;)
[12:57] <roaster> hope it's only the sd card rolleiflex
[12:57] <fayimora> [deXter]: any recommended tut/blog post i should follow to install openELEC?
[12:57] <rolleiflex> it probably is, my pi has been working well for me so far
[12:57] <rolleiflex> it's also a microsd with a sd mount, so lots of points to fail
[12:57] <[deXter]> fayimora, you just have to run the installer that's bundled with it.. extract it and then run ./create_sdcard
[12:58] <rolleiflex> I'll just get a normal sd vard..
[12:58] <[deXter]> err, ./create_sdcard /dev/sdb (assuming sdb is your sdcard)
[12:58] <[deXter]> (assuming you're doing that on a linux PC..)

[12:59] <roaster> fayimora, look at the link I pasted, there are mac instructions as well
[12:59] <fayimora> yeah..Thanks guys!!! I appreciate
[13:00] <fayimora> roaster: "Format the sd card in disk utility as msdos"
[13:00] <fayimora> Is openelec not an app?
[13:00] <[deXter]> No, its a distro made specifically for xbmc
[13:00] <fayimora> Oh gosh
[13:00] <fayimora> So i can't use my pi for anything else
[13:00] <roaster> I think that's a step you can skip, you're using dd afterwards anyway
[13:00] <[deXter]> that's why you have other SD cards :)
[13:01] <fayimora> That's why i chose xbmc :(
[13:01] <[deXter]> it just takes a few seconds to boot
[13:01] <[deXter]> you should remember the Pi isn't like your ordinary PC
[13:01] <fayimora> lol continuously swapping cards
[13:01] <[deXter]> If you really love using raspbian and don't want to reboot, just use omxplayer
[13:02] <[deXter]> I mean if you just want something to play your videos without lag
[13:02] <Ben64> the xbmc stuff was laggy last time i tried them
[13:02] <[deXter]> but if you want the whole media centre experience... with tagging, filtering, fanart, library, tv guide, ratings etc.. then openelc is the way to go
[13:03] <fayimora> I guess i have to get a new card then :(
[13:04] <[deXter]> and you're not limited to one RPi either ;)
[13:04] <Ben64> i'm sad mine is 256MB
[13:04] <[deXter]> I use one just as a media center, one as a webserver, one to play around with and do crazy stuff

[13:17] <user82> to access the register content
[13:17] <roaster> no idea :)
[13:17] <user82> same here..i guess try and error

[13:19] <user82> did not want to wake you up
[13:19] <Gordio> user82, I sat HI! :P
[13:19] <roaster> at least one more awake lol
[13:19] <Gordio> *say
[13:20] <gordonDrogon> user82, keep a software copy of the register - not sure if the ARM has read/modify/write instruations for *a = *a | 1<< bit
[13:20] <user82> yep seen it...hi to you
[13:20] <gordonDrogon> or bit-set instructions, rather.
[13:20] <user82> gordonDrogon would my compiler not complain if i write impossible stuff?
[13:20] <gordonDrogon> no
[13:21] <user82> oh ok
[13:21] <gordonDrogon> on the Pi's SoC you write bits into 2 separate registers to set or clear GPIO pins.
[13:22] <gordonDrogon> so its probably not that bad, but you never need to read the register for setting outputs to 1 or 0.
[13:22] <roaster> shouldn't the compiler foresee some more instructions in this case? I'm a software developer but never worked this low level I might be wrong :D
[13:23] <gordonDrogon> some compilers are good - e.g. the GCC AVR compiler will turn *reg = *reg | 1 << bit into a bit-set operation.

[13:24] <gordonDrogon> just re-reading some of my Pi code - I read the alt-mode register to clear/or-in bits to set the modes for each pin anyway. (3 bits per pin)
[13:24] <gordonDrogon> Each Pi GPIO pin has up to 8 different modes.
[13:24] <Triffid_Hunter> user82: yeah that style is fairly common with bare metal, you can generally do stuff like #define GPFSEL1 *((uint32_t*) (GCM2835_GPIO_BASE + BCM2835_GPFSEL1))) and then use simply with GPFSEL1 <<= 1;
[13:25] <Triffid_Hunter> user82: I haven't looked at bcm2835 or rpi specifically but I do embedded development with other chips and they're all fairly similar
[13:25] * Xark notes there is register bit setting opcodes, but ARM is pretty much strictly load/store with memory.

[13:27] <Xark> bit-banding actually...http://infocenter.arm.com/help/index.jsp?topic=/com.arm.doc.dai0179b/CHDJHIDF.html

[14:35] <gordonDrogon> Saturation, probably for the life of the pi.
[14:35] <Ryanteck> It works surprisingly good as a web server
[14:37] <user82> Saturation i think there is no need to worry..text logs are really small

[14:40] <user82> gordonDrogon do you know about interals i think? is it right that the bootloader maps the complete memory for me as said in this forum post: The MMU (as you see it from ARM space, there's actually a second one that does a GPU memory -> ARM memory mapping, but you mainly don't need to know about that) is not set up, so your memory space is flat from 0x0 to the top of RAM at 0x10000000, then the peripherals are mapped in starting at 0x20000000.

[14:42] <Ryanteck> wha?
[14:42] <user82> okay thanks! some guy told me he is reverse engeneering the bootcode..but i forgot who it was :D
[14:42] <gordonDrogon> I really have no intentions to treat the Pi as yet another arduino - I'll use an arduino for that :)
[14:42] <gordonDrogon> there are plenty of tutorials, etc. about bare-bones booting, etc.
[14:43] <user82> gordonDrogon well i do...the high speed and 32bits is really nice

[15:25] <roaster> you have any resources, maybe I can adopt to debian :D
[15:25] <ssice> guys, I have experienced that the raspi's speed (in ssh) is quite dependant on the sdcard used
[15:25] <ssice> I had a 4GB class-4 SD
[15:26] <ssice> and I experienced some lag when inputting commands, and sudo'ing.
[15:26] <ssice> I have just received a new UHS-1 class-10 card and it's visibly more responsive to me

[15:30] <roaster> thanks for the info, will search some more
[15:31] <|Jeroen|> you must know some other jeroen i guess
[15:31] <roaster> probably :D
[15:31] <roaster> it's not a very rare name here anyway it was worth to give it a shot
[15:32] <rolleiflex> anyone know the maximum class of sd that should be bought? there are class 10 stuff, but seems a little overkill
[15:32] <roaster> I have a class 10 SD card
[15:32] <roaster> works fine :)
[15:32] <roaster> thought it was a class 4 but just looked closer, it's actually a class 10 haha
[15:32] <rolleiflex> righty, is there any speed difference?
[15:33] <roaster> can't compare
[15:33] <rolleiflex> I thought RPI's sd drive was capped at 4
[15:33] <rolleiflex> ie anything over that doesn't really matter
[15:33] <rolleiflex> but who knows
[15:34] <roaster> I do have some micro sd cards with adapters here when I have some spare time I'll give it a shot to compare
[15:34] <rolleiflex> btw roaster, I made the pi restart every day at 6AM with crontab
[15:34] <rolleiflex> so that's a solution to redlighting
[15:35] <roaster> is your freeze happening on a regular basis? like every night or every ;orning?
[15:35] <rolleiflex> not really, around the 60 hour mark, I believe
[15:35] <rolleiflex> it really depends
[15:35] <roaster> damnit I need to get a qwerty keyboard at work too, loosing the hang of switching from keyboard layouts haha
[15:35] <roaster> I see
[15:36] <rolleiflex> I tried replacing the PSU (an original ipod charger), the cable
[15:36] <rolleiflex> it happens with ethernet and wifi, so no dice there too
[15:36] <roaster> maybe it's some sort of memory leak?
[15:36] <rolleiflex> might be
[15:36] <rolleiflex> then I thought the power is quite dirty on the rural part of the country I happen to be at
[15:36] <rolleiflex> then I connected the thing to a power supply
[15:36] <rolleiflex> still no dice
[15:37] <rolleiflex> might be, but then everybody who's running the thing would've encountered it. I'm using the standard hard fload raspbian
[15:37] <rolleiflex> your garden variety of tools, no desktop, no encoding, no overclock
[15:37] <rolleiflex> maybe I am assigning too little ram for gpu, but I'm not using it at all
[15:37] <rolleiflex> so it should be okay..
[15:37] <roaster> what do you use it for?
[15:38] <rolleiflex> rolleiflex.dyndns.org:8080

[16:39] <Anickyan> (using C++)
[16:39] <Encrypt> :?
[16:39] <Encrypt> No idea...
[16:39] <mjr> opengl es on the pi is independent of X so you can use that
[16:40] <mjr> or you can use the framebuffer, I suppose, if you want to just write pixels

[17:12] <KiltedPi> Find solutions in debian-
[17:12] <KiltedPi> if you can.

[18:35] <dwatkins> I did this with my Arduino, I imagine the same is possible withthe RPi... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZQZ5OLvT7SU
[18:35] <dwatkins> PWM controlling random brightness of 4 LEDs, that is
[18:36] <FrankBlues> Anyone cooling the rpi: fans, heatsink, something more exotic?
[18:36] <giggls> LED brightness is not what I'm up to I want drive a beep - beep - beep ... buzzer
[18:37] <giggls> set the frequency should be about 10Hz-20Hz or so
[18:38] <SpeedEvil> 10-20 will not work with many buzzers
[18:39] <SpeedEvil> they don't start up very fast
[18:41] * nextime for software pwm to control leds suggest to use bit angle modulation that is a lot more performant that standard pwm
[18:41] <gordonDrogon> there is only one hardware PWM avalable on the Pi.
[18:42] <gordonDrogon> however I have a software PWM library that can use any pin as PWM - it's OK, but not perfect, but usually good enough.
[18:43] <gordonDrogon> FrankBlues, you're wasting your time - you'll continually be told that the Pi doesn't need cooling, but don't let that stop you if you really want to.
[18:44] <gordonDrogon> I also have a software tone generator for the Pi - works a treat for piezeo 'speakers' and high impedance speakers (e.g. 64??)
[18:44] <gordonDrogon> can only do 100 to 5KHz though.
[18:45] <gordonDrogon> Hm. actually 0 to 5KHz.
[18:45] <giggls> SpeedEvil: it will, because something like this does:
[18:45] <giggls> while true; do sleep 0.1; echo 1 > /sys/class/gpio/gpio18/value; sleep 0.1; echo 0 > /sys/class/gpio/gpio18/value; done
[18:45] <nabukadnezar43> gordonDrogon, have you ever done rx tx with rpi->pic/avr/or any other mcu?
[18:46] <gordonDrogon> nabukadnezar43, sure. works a treat. make sure the voltages are compatible (3.3) if using the on-board uart, but usb is trivial too.
[18:46] <FrankBlues> gordonDrogon, Because the temperature regulation is a factor in overclocking, I'm wondering if higher speeds are possible with cooling, and if you can stay at an actual 1ghz for longer if the pi is cooled.
[18:47] <gordonDrogon> FrankBlues, read more - you might find that that's not true on a Pi.
[18:47] <nabukadnezar43> well most if not all pics and avrs use 5 volts
[18:48] <nabukadnezar43> gordonDrogon, is there a good tutorial/book on rpi gpio (serial,i2c,pwm etc.) you can recommend?
[18:48] <FrankBlues> My understanding was that the governor (similar to the android ARM governor) will drop the actual clockrate if the temperature approaches 85C
[18:49] <gordonDrogon> FrankBlues, hey, don't listen to me - do your own reading..
[18:49] <TAFB> woot, real time drive activity added to my status page (courtesy of iostat): http://tafb.yi.org/
[18:49] <TAFB> tps = transactions per second :)
[18:50] <user82> dwatkins were you the guy reverse engineering or did i get confused?
[18:50] <gordonDrogon> nabukadnezar43, I don't know of one book that has it all (nor one website!) I've done a lot myself, but no I2C yet.
[18:51] <gordonDrogon> nabukadnezar43, serial is the same as serial on any other Linux host - and that it's "just another Linux box" is always good to remember too - because really, it's been done on countless other platforms - although the Pi does have one or 2 quirks :)
[18:51] <nabukadnezar43> gordonDrogon, so for example if you use serial rx tx, can you write programs using termios (C) and pyserial (python) directly?
[18:52] <gordonDrogon> nabukadnezar43, absolutely.

[18:52] <nabukadnezar43> gordonDrogon, i will, thanks
[18:52] <gordonDrogon> FrankBlues, no-one is doing it because it doesn't help. You might be able to cool the memory pop chip, but not the actual cpu/gpu.
[18:53] <giggls> nabukadnezar43: note, that by default console output is directed to the serial port

[18:53] <gordonDrogon> FrankBlues, at the end of the day myself, and may others feel it's just not worth the effort. People are running Pis at 1, 1.1 and maybe faster without heatsinks.
[18:54] <gordonDrogon> giggls, nabukadnezar43 yup - just remember it's 3.3v
[18:54] <nabukadnezar43> giggls, on gpio14 and gpio15?
[18:54] <nabukadnezar43> gordonDrogon, sure, thanks
[18:54] <BaroMeter> heatsinks, was my first investment to my rasberry
[18:55] <user82> or ReggieUK do you know wo tries to reverse engineer the boot code?
[18:55] <Sendoushi> so... what about a drum machine like an akai mpc using raspberry pie?
[18:56] <FrankBlues> The limitations of the processor/gpu aren't being affected by cooling it - it's still going to become unstable at certain speeds no matter what you do, and that's independent of the cpu heat, which never reaches that threshold then... is that more accurate?
[18:56] <gordonDrogon> probably.
[18:57] <gordonDrogon> Power supply is more critical for overclocking (I've found).
[18:57] <BaroMeter> oh
[18:57] <gordonDrogon> My Pi's rarely get over 50C unless I stick them in-front of the fan heater.
[18:58] <user82> i got a package of mini coolers..not applied yet though
[18:58] <gordonDrogon> why not just try the turbo mode and see what you get.
[18:58] <FrankBlues> kk, that makes sense then. Thanks. Sorry for my being dense this morning.
[18:58] <BaroMeter> I run my at 1GHz with heat sinks, using it with XBMC only
[18:58] <gordonDrogon> /opt/vc/bin/vcgencmd measure_temp
[18:58] <dniMretsaM> I run mine on turbo mode with no heatsinks. I haven't had any issues
[18:59] <gordonDrogon> I ran mine at 900MHz for months without issues - it was only when I enabled dynamic switching that I got issues )-:
[18:59] <dniMretsaM> when I get a case for the Pi I'll probably grab some sinks, though
[18:59] <gordonDrogon> I got back to fixed 900 and they're fine.
[18:59] <DDave> what heatsinks do you guys use?
[18:59] <FrankBlues> Gonna give turbo a shot, brb, reboot.
[19:00] <gordonDrogon> I have a Pi in a closed adafruit case - it's sitting at 50C and very happy.

[19:00] * FrankBlues (~alex@c-24-10-177-199.hsd1.ut.comcast.net) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[19:00] <dniMretsaM> I have a pretty good power supply, so I'm sure that helps
[19:00] <gordonDrogon> fixing is the issue - do be aware that the cpu is actually 2 chips, one soldered on-top of the other ... If you glue a heatsink to the top, then there is the potential to stress those solder pads...
[19:01] <BaroMeter> The CPU speed throttle's between 700 - 1000GHz, how can get it to run at 1Ghz permanently
[19:01] <DDave> mhm... and no way of applying thermal paste
[19:01] <gordonDrogon> and it's really the bottom chip that (potentially) you want to cool anyway...
[19:01] <gordonDrogon> BaroMeter, you need to disable auto-turbo mode and manually apply the overclockings.
[19:01] <DDave> gordonDrogon, as far as I remember you have a blog, right? Do you have a guide on how you added sinks?

[19:02] <gordonDrogon> DDave, https://projects.drogon.net/ however I do not beileve that heatsinks are necessary, so I do not advocate their use.

[19:02] <DDave> Yes, I was just asking out of curiosity. I havent had any heat problems anyhow.. I think a fan might help more than a heatsink

[21:44] <axion> dont expect the device to work fully though. what is its rated amperage?
[21:44] <dniMretsaM> you mean for this keyboard it's normal?
[21:44] <axion> what is the power specs of the receiver?
[21:44] <dniMretsaM> the device works absolutely fine. and I'm not sure, I'll check

[21:46] <axion> during boot the pi uses less power than when the cpu and other peripherals are powered
[21:46] <axion> so that seems normal to me that it only works during boot
[21:47] <axion> same thing for my keyboard receiver when not attached to dedicated powered hub
[21:47] <dniMretsaM> ok, that makes sense. I can't find the power usage, so I'll just leave it at that

[22:46] <Prime326> Is there any way to start an ntp daemon earlier in the boot process, so that logs are more accurate?
[22:46] <gordonDrogon> TAFB, you'll need to reduce it to 0-3.3v
[22:46] <TAFB> i could do that, and then the Pi could monitor it directly?
[22:47] <gordonDrogon> Prime326, not really - can't start ntp until networking is running.

[22:55] <Encrypt> Then, it's better to buy 2 Pis and connect them each-other

[23:39] * TAFB ??? arch
[23:39] <dniMretsaM> is it possible to get the xscreensaver-gl stuff working on the Pi?
[23:40] <scummos> dniMretsaM: probably not
[23:40] <Laice> 1.2Ghz?
[23:40] <ShiftPlusOne> There's also a 'hello video' example in /opt/src
[23:40] <scummos> the pi supports OpenGL ES
[23:40] <TAFB> Laice: it ain't a Pi ;)
[23:40] <scummos> and the gl stuff is opengl 2 or so
[23:40] <Laice> gonna say, christ you got that thing in a nitrogen tank lol
[23:40] <dniMretsaM> rats
[23:40] <TAFB> Laice: lol. It's that little black box in the pic (Seagate GoFlex Home). Fast as snot :)
[23:40] <BigShip> Opinie: I set a custom command xterm -e omxplayer -o hdmi -r %f

[23:41] <BigShip> Opinie: found a tutorial thing that told me to... but it just fullscreens a blank screen
[23:41] <dniMretsaM> hmm. I get the error that the display doesn't support the GLX extension.
[23:41] <axion> that is correct
[23:41] <axion> you need an EGL context
[23:42] <dniMretsaM> actually it's from the GL extras package.
[23:42] <linuxstb> BigShip: Do you know what format the video is inside your avi?
[23:42] <dniMretsaM> but same difference in this case
[23:42] <Laice> know much about hostnames? i own steelrain.co.uk and have 3 dedicateds and the pi i'd all like as subs on the FQDN, i.e the pi would be thor.steelrain.co.uk the master cass.steelrain.co.uk, is it just a case of playing with the dns and /etc/hostname to be able to get to them from anywhere?
[23:42] <BigShip> uh, dang I thought .avi was the format @_@. How would I check?
[23:42] <scummos> no, avi only is a container... it's sort of confusing
[23:42] <axion> inspect the video contained in the avi
[23:42] <dr_willis> avi is a container the video itself can be any of several dozen+ codecs
[23:43] <dr_willis> file foo.avi might give details of the file
[23:43] <Opinie> TAFB: that is not your pi, right? http://tafb.yi.org/

[23:45] <axion> im taking my domain name back

[23:47] <TAFB> ahhh. truck. Which truck was it off the back of?
[23:47] <Laice> exactly :P
[23:47] <Scriptonaut> Hey guys, I booted into raspbian for the first time, and with an ethernet cable attached(going to my router). I can't seem to connect to the internet through the web browser,and the package manager can't either. I'm able to ping both IP's and domains though. What could the problem be?
[23:47] <Laice> dns servers by the sound of it
[23:47] <Scriptonaut> sometimes with apt-get I will download like 20%, but then it cuts out
[23:48] <Laice> or default gateway
[23:48] <Scriptonaut> the DNS seems to work, because I can ping domains
[23:48] <TAFB> Laice: three pics coming up... #1: http://likestuff.globat.com/2012-05-07-3TBseagateGoFlexHomeExternalHardDrive/2012-05-07-3TBseagateGoFlexHomeExternalHardDriveMotorcycleStaplesR6S2009_L.jpg

[23:49] <TAFB> nothin illegal for me anymore!
[23:49] <Opinie> TAFB: are you really on probation?
[23:49] <BigShip> linuxstb: as in /media/MULTIBOOT/Evolution.avi Evolution.avi ?
[23:49] <TAFB> http://tafb.xxx/rcmp
[23:49] <TAFB> ^^
[23:49] <Laice> be glad your VAT is only 13%! we pay 20% over in the UK
[23:50] <TAFB> Laice: yikes!! :(
[23:50] <linuxstb> BigShip: No, "file" is the name of the command. So type "file /media/MULTIBOOT/Evolution.avi"
[23:50] <linuxstb> (without the quotes)
[23:50] <BigShip> ahh kk
[23:50] <TAFB> Laice: can you get away without paying the VAT by ordering from the internet and getting it shipped in?
[23:51] <axion> anyone in the US interested in a used HP atom-based netbook for 1/3 cost before i ebay it?
[23:51] <Laice> depends on customs
[23:51] <TAFB> ahhhh
[23:51] <Laice> a lot of the time though the cost of importing is too high
[23:51] <Laice> see if they declare it as a gift at customs, no problem! if it's trade goods or for personal........bam.
[23:51] <BigShip> linuxstb: it says its video: DivX 3 Low-Motion, audio:MPEG-1 Layer 3
[23:52] <Laice> they've tightened up a lot on internet buying as people are importing tasers, and there's now more criminals using tasers than guns.
[23:52] <TAFB> nuts!
[23:52] <linuxstb> BigShip: OK, then that should work I think (not sure about the "Low-Motion" bit). Try "omxplayer /media/MULTIBOOT/Evolution.avi" (instead of your shortcut)
[23:52] <Laice> i got an EpicMealTime Tshirt from Quebec this christmas, $20 for the shirt, $20 postage
[23:52] <rikkib> 34 deg C in my workshop, 44 deg C in direct sunlight. Been in the sun unloading pathing stones and cooking.
[23:53] <linuxstb> BigShip: That should also write an "omxplayer.log" file into the current directory. That may give you an error message.
[23:53] <TAFB> yikes, quebec is close to me :)
[23:53] <Laice> well tell them to sort it out :P
[23:53] <Laice> haha i do wonder on your definition of close in a country that size
[23:54] <TAFB> they are pretending to be their own country right no, so F them! They won't let us ship anything there without french instructions/box/info, etc. And they want the rest of canada to ban importing products that aren't bi-lingual! They made ALL of our laptops come with the most RETARDED bi-lingual keyboards :(
[23:54] <Laice> where's your @ key

[23:56] <ShiftPlusOne> ah, laptop. I have never been a fan of laptop keyboards >=/
[23:56] <TAFB> i don't mind them, if they are english/USA keyboards
[23:56] <TAFB> can't stand the "canadian" keyboards :(
[23:56] <ShiftPlusOne> I always type derpy on laptops.
[23:57] <TAFB> I like that Dell said "screw quebec" and are shipping english keyboard now, so quebec banned them from being sold there :) lol

[23:57] <TAFB> Laice: you have small left shift key too! i can't stand it
[23:57] <Laice> i use right shift 24/7 instead
