[0:00] <Datalink-M> Old IRC axiom is "don't ask to ask, just ask" it's actually less awkward to come out and say the question in the long run
[0:01] <axion> i know there are arch users, but nobody could help me before when i asked the full question. however against irc etiquette i will repeat
[0:02] <Bane`> Any of you guys using a nifty little case for you rpi? I'm trying to find a nice/cheap one
[0:02] <axion> can you try installing retroarch-rbp-git and try eecuting `retroarch`? since about a month ago i get undefined symbols in OpenVG
[0:03] <swart> sorry Bane` you just missed the nifty case discussion. Wednesdays 22:00 CET :)
[0:03] <TomWij> TAFB: ^
[0:03] <TAFB> TomWij: sup?
[0:03] <axion> Bane`: too many to list. poycase.com has a nice one though
[0:03] <axion> polycase.com rather
[0:03] <TomWij> TAFB: You're an Arch user, want to help axion out? :D
[0:03] <Bane`> Cool I'll check it out
[0:03] <TAFB> i am lost :)
[0:04] <TAFB> axion: was ur prob?
[0:04] <TomWij> It's the line above mine. :D
[0:04] <Datalink-M> swart, the discussion should never end on cases
[0:04] * peetaur2 (~peter@hmbg-4d06a7c9.pool.mediaWays.net) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[0:04] <axion> TAFB: can you install retroarch-rbp-git and check that it runs for you?
[0:04] <TAFB> my arch box has no display, it's ssh only
[0:04] <axion> that is ok
[0:04] <axion> just need to know if it executes without error
[0:05] <TAFB> okies, command to run?
[0:05] * KamikazeKnutter (~kamikazek@86-45-5-23-dynamic.b-ras2.prp.dublin.eircom.net) Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[0:05] <axion> do you have an AUR tool instaled yet?
[0:05] * ech0s7 (~ech0s7@95.234.189.210) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[0:05] <TAFB> no idea
[0:05] <TomWij> axion: Is "undefined symbols in OpenVG" a compiler or runtime error?
[0:05] <axion> runtime
[0:05] <axion> for the last month it hasnt worked despite recompiling against several firmwares
[0:06] * Torikun (~Torikun@76-220-9-159.lightspeed.sntcca.sbcglobal.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:06] <Torikun> ah I was not authenticated
[0:06] * Gordio (~Gordio@46.211.120.232) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:06] <Torikun> znc sometimes does and does not
[0:06] <Datalink-M> I use SAPI now Torikun
[0:06] <Torikun> better?
[0:07] <Torikun> http://www.linux-toys.com/?q=node/11 Pi's on the wall =)
[0:07] <Torikun> soon 3
[0:07] <Datalink-M> Heh, nice
[0:08] <ParkerR> Torikun, Sweet

[0:09] <Torikun> Wall mount cases help reduce clutter
[0:09] <Torikun> lol
[0:09] <Torikun> I just seen it when I opened the new case and was liek dam I gotta do this
[0:09] <axion> just want to know if a fresh build of retroarch-rbp-git can be run by another arch user besides me
[0:10] <ParkerR> axion, Umm it installs packages
[0:10] <Torikun> axion: the firmware update went fine
[0:10] <ParkerR> Not usre if you can just tar it up
[0:10] <ParkerR> *sure
[0:10] * egrouse (~newb@unaffiliated/egrouse) Quit (Quit: Computer has gone to sleep.)
[0:10] <axion> ParkerR: aroo?
[0:11] * Torikun tries recompiling retroarch-rbp-git
[0:11] <ParkerR> aroo?
[0:11] <axion> ParkerR: it is an AUR item. no package.
[0:11] <ParkerR> Ahh
[0:11] <ParkerR> Well aur builds a package
[0:11] <axion> right
[0:11] <ParkerR> Then installs it
[0:11] <axion> which builds fine, but links wrongly against OpenVG
[0:11] <ParkerR> Might work
[0:11] <ParkerR> Oh
[0:11] <ParkerR> Side note: I like packer better :)
[0:12] <axion> i helped write packer
[0:12] <axion> ofc :)
[0:12] <ParkerR> Use Arch on my laptop
[0:12] <ParkerR> Nice

[0:12] <axion> me and brueinig wrote that one evening when we were bored and making fun of another AUR helper and how bad it is...about 3 years ago
[0:12] <axion> bruenig rather
[0:13] <axion> i am an arch user of over a decade :)
[0:13] * Hopsy (~Hopsy@unaffiliated/hopsy) Quit (Quit: KVIrc 4.0.4 Insomnia http://www.kvirc.net/)
[0:13] <ParkerR> axion, :D
[0:13] <ParkerR> <3
[0:13] <axion> i just cant emulate games no more :(
[0:14] <axion> and havent been able to narrow it down to just my install, due to not knowing what others can do
[0:14] <ParkerR> axion, I used retropie-setup in debian
[0:14] * tinti_ (~tinti@pdpc/supporter/student/tinti) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:14] <ParkerR> Haven't tried arch on the Pi yet
[0:15] * Yachtsman (~Yachtsman@107.42.156.55) Quit (Quit: gogo)
[0:15] <Bane`> So....
[0:15] <Bane`> Got my RPi
[0:15] <ParkerR> So
[0:15] <ParkerR> :D
[0:15] <Bane`> Went to turn it on the first time
[0:15] <Bane`> Red light on power
[0:15] <Torikun> GOod
[0:15] <Torikun> sd card in there?
[0:15] <Bane`> Mhmm
[0:15] <ParkerR> Haha
[0:15] <Bane`> SD, HDMI, power, and usb keyboard
[0:15] * Olipro (~Olipro@uncyclopedia/pdpc.21for7.olipro) Quit (Ping timeout: 264 seconds)
[0:15] <DDave> remove everything Bane`
[0:16] <DDave> leave only sd + power
[0:16] <Bane`> Tried that as well, red light
[0:16] <DDave> uh btw, hdmi didnt work for me
[0:16] <DDave> on default
[0:16] <ParkerR> What did you use to create the card?
[0:16] <axion> i guss i'll backup and reinstall to be sure since i cannot find a second person with arch/pi/time
[0:16] <axion> bbl
[0:16] <Torikun> axion: compiling it now
[0:16] * AeroNotix (~xeno@aboj54.neoplus.adsl.tpnet.pl) Quit (Quit: Uploading hax.....)
[0:16] <Bane`> ParkerR: uhhh
[0:16] <Torikun> just failed again axion
[0:16] <Bane`> I can't remeber the name
[0:16] <Bane`> remember*
[0:17] <Torikun> same problem
[0:17] <Bane`> But it was an XBMC pi installer thing
[0:17] <axion> Torikun: are you sure you have the latest firmware and kernel? and that they are both booted from?
[0:17] <Torikun> not kernel
[0:17] <axion> i never experienced build fails on arch
[0:17] <Torikun> casue of that issue
[0:17] <Bane`> Raspbmc, I believe is the one I used
[0:17] <Torikun> but latest firmware
[0:17] <axion> latest firmware needs a kernel upgrade
[0:17] <axion> that would be why
[0:18] <Torikun> if I install the kernel, my root will go bye bye
[0:18] <axion> then find out why
[0:18] <Torikun> known issue
[0:18] <axion> for only certain userlands?
[0:18] <axion> not here...
[0:18] <Torikun> not sure
[0:19] <Torikun> others came in here with same issue
[0:19] <axion> link to known issue?
[0:19] <Torikun> after upgrading
[0:19] <Torikun> two links one blames firmware and one kernel
[0:19] <Bane`> Could my problem be the card itself?
[0:19] <Datalink-M> Torikun, what do you use for clustering?
[0:19] <TomWij> Bane`: Where does the card come from? Can you be a bit more detailed in the steps you took?
[0:19] <axion> i have had it too...i removed boot files completely and reinstalled firmware to fix it a while ago...might be related
[0:19] <Torikun> Nginx , just cluter the site, balance the load Datalink-M
[0:20] <Torikun> and database on seperate pi Datalink-M
[0:20] <Torikun> I am scared to do it now lol I should backup first and try it axion
[0:20] <Bane`> TomWij: Well, I used the xbmc insatller to write the image on my SD card, then just plugged everything up. The card is a SanDisk brand, although there are no Class marking or anything of the sort...
[0:20] <Torikun> but I am still testing the packages from todays update
[0:20] <axion> you only have to backup like 20mb at most
[0:20] * steve_rox (~steve@82-69-127-162.dsl.in-addr.zen.co.uk) Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[0:20] <Torikun> latest firmware does not have the latest kernel as a dependancy
[0:20] <axion> only /boot
[0:20] <Datalink-M> Ah ok, not process cluster but cloud cluster
[0:21] <TomWij> Bane`: Okay, what is the partition scheme it made?
[0:21] <axion> no but about a month ago a kernel upgrade was required for a newer firmware
[0:21] <Bane`> Scratch that, it's a class 4
[0:21] <Bane`> sec
[0:21] <Torikun> my previous firmware was early december
[0:21] <Datalink-M> I need to git the firmware
[0:21] <axion> i think later than dec 06 needed a newer kernel
[0:21] <TomWij> Bane`: And maybe very important: Which power supply are you using, what is its mA?
[0:21] <axion> not sure
[0:22] * sraue (~stephan@xbmc/staff/sraue) Quit (Ping timeout: 246 seconds)
[0:22] <Bane`> TomWij: checking the partition right now. tried 2 psus. nexus 7 charger : 5V 2A, and a samsung 5V 0.7A
[0:22] <Bane`> The N7 is on the "good" list
[0:22] <Torikun> I used to use the n7 charger 2
[0:23] <Bane`> Well then
[0:23] <Torikun> worked good
[0:23] <Bane`> My SD card is showing an entire "unallocated" partition
[0:23] <Bane`> That could explain the problem, I suppose
[0:23] <Torikun> install an os on the sd card and see if boots
[0:23] <TomWij> Bane`: What OS are you using on the host? Windows?
[0:23] <Bane`> Yes
[0:24] * scummos (~sven@p5B02DB2B.dip.t-dialin.net) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[0:24] <TomWij> Bane`: It might just be Windows improperly detecting the second partition, because that should be a Linux partition but Windows is probably unable to tell so.
[0:24] <TomWij> The first partition should be something FAT-ish, right?
[0:24] <pksato> Bane`: Test first with raspbian. Or berryboot (more easy to install).
[0:24] <Bane`> Yes, first part is FAT32
[0:24] <TomWij> (Power supplies were indeed good)
[0:24] * scummos (~sven@p5B02DB2B.dip.t-dialin.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:24] <Bane`> pksato: I'll try that in a sec
[0:25] <TomWij> Bane`: Okay, you'll want to check the files on that FAT32 and perhaps replace them with the ones you can find on GitHub.
[0:25] * brady2600 (~ludwig@71-218-229-12.hlrn.qwest.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:25] * Mr_P (~gerhard@chello080108255018.3.14.vie.surfer.at) Quit (Ping timeout: 252 seconds)
[0:25] <TomWij> As long as you don't replace or delete the kernel image (which isn't on the firmware repo anyway), it should be good.
[0:26] <axion> Torikun: yes newer firmwares than that require a kernel with supported features, hence your problem more than likely. you shouldnt blacklist arch packages ever
[0:26] <Bane`> Wait
[0:26] <Bane`> There should be files on the FAT32 part? There is nothing on mine...
[0:26] <Torikun> ah
[0:27] <TomWij> Bane`: There's your problem. :D
[0:27] <TomWij> Bane`: Placing the firmware there won't be enough, you'll also need a kernel. So, just try to install again from scratch...
[0:28] <Bane`> I think this time I'll not use an autoinstaller...
[0:29] <double-you> heh, dd the raspbian 2gb image took 2000 seconds for me ;)
[0:29] <Torikun> dd arch to it and go home happy
[0:30] * DDave (~DDave@unaffiliated/ddave) Quit (Ping timeout: 256 seconds)
[0:30] <double-you> heh
[0:32] <seba-> which ftp server is cool
[0:32] <Torikun> vfstpd
[0:33] <TomWij> Nah... Create partitions, bootstrap it, compile the kernel, install the kernel, install the firmware, set up networking and ssh; there you go, minimal RPi system. xD
[0:33] <gordonDrogon> I use proftpd ...

[0:58] <seba-> i only need ssh access
[0:58] <pksato> red always on
[0:58] <earl2> gordonDrogon, we keep missing each other. are you still around?
[0:59] <gordonDrogon> earl2, just...
[0:59] * aphadke (~Adium@c-71-198-5-34.hsd1.ca.comcast.net) has left #raspberrypi
[0:59] <Bane`> pksato: Ah, thanks
[0:59] <earl2> :)
[0:59] <earl2> so you were asking me before, you might be able to assemble the hardware part of a "simple" (hardware wise) rpi projct and ship it to me so I can focus on what I'm good at, the sw part?
[1:00] <gordonDrogon> was I?
[1:01] <gordonDrogon> what was it again?
[1:01] <earl2> so it's twelve of these: http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-Make-a-Ridiculously-Cheap-Analog-Pressure-S/ on, I guess, two ADC's connected to an rpi
[1:02] <earl2> all on breadboard's - nothing fancy
[1:02] * Cykey (~textual@modemcable119.94-162-184.mc.videotron.ca) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:03] <earl2> actually, sorry. I might be referring to Datalink, but he said to follow up when he didn't have the -M. I'm not sure what you were asking
[1:03] <gordonDrogon> I was just being curious about it.
[1:03] <earl2> you were maybe just asking what this entailed. so, this is it.
[1:03] <earl2> any thoughts
[1:03] <earl2> right
[1:03] <earl2> do you have any thoughts on the matter?
[1:04] <gordonDrogon> well it's not that hard to do - but that assumes you know what to do :)
[1:04] <earl2> I really don't
[1:04] <earl2> I know nothing about hw, only sw
[1:04] <earl2> i can only do the sw side as i have to commit all my time to it even as it is
[1:04] <gordonDrogon> There are probably not many 12 channel A/Ds out there, so probably 2 8-channel ones.
[1:04] <earl2> also it is super inconvenient to ship components to where i am right now
[1:04] <earl2> right
[1:05] <gordonDrogon> So you then need to pick I2C or SPI based chips. SPI may be slightly faster.
[1:05] <earl2> everything you just said is greek to me
[1:05] <earl2> by slightly faster you mean lower latency at reading in values?
[1:05] <earl2> by everything, I mean "I2C" AND "SPI"
[1:06] <earl2> sorry about the caps and
[1:06] <gordonDrogon> not just that - I2C is clocked at 400KHz, SPI is 1MHz and faster.
[1:06] <gordonDrogon> how fast do you need to sample then?
[1:06] <earl2> oh very slowly!
[1:06] * neciO (~juan@ec2-54-246-126-113.eu-west-1.compute.amazonaws.com) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[1:06] <gordonDrogon> ok
[1:06] <earl2> way way slower than KHz
[1:07] <TomWij> Bane`: Yes, it's the power light.
[1:07] <earl2> did you click my instrucatbles link :)
[1:07] * Torikun (~Torikun@76-220-9-159.lightspeed.sntcca.sbcglobal.net) Quit (Quit: http://www.linux-toys.com)
[1:07] <earl2> and the accuracy can be very qualitative, just "heavy", "moderate" or "light" is fine for me to interpret as.
[1:07] <gordonDrogon> here we go - the AD7490 is a 16-channel ADC.
[1:07] <gordonDrogon> and it uses SPI.
[1:08] <gordonDrogon> IT would interface to the PI quite easilly.
[1:08] <earl2> how much is that?
[1:09] <earl2> google product search gets me a chinese yixing zisha antique
[1:09] <gordonDrogon> not sure...
[1:09] <gordonDrogon> I'll check.
[1:09] <earl2> and a cd at $0.01
[1:09] * pizthewiz (~pizthewiz@108-252-136-39.lightspeed.sntcca.sbcglobal.net) Quit (Quit: pizthewiz)
[1:09] <earl2> https://www.google.com/search?hl=en&tbm=shop&q=+AD7490
[1:11] <gordonDrogon> looks like they're about ?11
[1:11] * DeliriumTremens (~DT@reddit/operator/deliriumtremens) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:12] <gordonDrogon> http://uk.rs-online.com/web/p/general-purpose-adcs/5387172/
[1:12] <earl2> is that a pound sign?
[1:12] <earl2> (renders weird for me)
[1:13] <gordonDrogon> Yes, 11 GBP.
[1:13] <earl2> for me it shows ?9.97 - do you automatically add shipping when you calculate?
[1:13] <earl2> (per 1)
[1:14] <earl2> So walk me through how you would make the twelve things in the instructables, which would take a few minutes, and get it attached to this thing?
[1:14] <earl2> please
[1:16] <gordonDrogon> er, I've just started ahuge upload to youtube. lost most of my internet.
[1:16] <earl2> no problem, the internet is pretty big you wont even notice
[1:16] <gordonDrogon> forgot to switch to ipv4.
[1:16] <earl2> so you just bumped a few million indians off to get an address, congrats
[1:17] <earl2> :)
[1:17] <earl2> anywho...
[1:17] * mgottschlag (~quassel@reactos/tester/phoenix64) Quit (Read error: Operation timed out)
[1:17] <gordonDrogon> eh? no - I forgot to switch off ipv6 I meant. I can traffic shape ipv4 but not ipv6 yet.
[1:17] <gordonDrogon> that article contains the instructions, all you need to do is follow it.
[1:18] * pizthewiz (~pizthewiz@108-252-136-39.lightspeed.sntcca.sbcglobal.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:18] <earl2> I mean after this part
[1:19] * plugwash wonders if and when major ISPs here will start to offer IPv6
[1:19] <earl2> I'd like to get an idea of how long assembling, for example the AD7490 you mentioned, on breadboards, to an rpi wuld take
[1:19] <earl2> i have no idea even what these words mean except rpi
[1:19] <earl2> i just want to start reading these things in software. the usage case is still complex but i can work on the rest in software
[1:19] <gordonDrogon> build the circuit - for me, I would do it and probably write some test software in a about an hour.
[1:19] <pksato> pressure sensor? adc? proccess control?
[1:19] <gordonDrogon> plugwash, you're on ipv6..
[1:19] <earl2> how long would it take you to get the materils to hand including an exta rpi if you dont have one at the moment?
[1:20] <gordonDrogon> couple of days.
[1:20] * flowsnake (~oops@cpc26-aztw25-2-0-cust894.aztw.cable.virginmedia.com) Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[1:20] <earl2> for me just for comparison this would be weeks, just due to the shipping
[1:20] <plugwash> gordonDrogon, this machine has a freenet6 tunnel configured so I can test software etc with IPv6.
[1:21] <earl2> and how much would your parts total be?
[1:21] <gordonDrogon> seems a bit bizarre.
[1:21] <gordonDrogon> plugwash, ah, ok.
[1:21] <earl2> the 11 for the adc is cheap, the pressure things are like zero, but i dont know about the rest
[1:21] <gordonDrogon> er, well I'd probaby just need the chip as I have the rest.
[1:22] <earl2> okay but if you sent it to me i would repay you your cost on them as well as your time, but what would that cost have been?
[1:22] <gordonDrogon> plugwash, thought you were in the UK?

[1:22] <earl2> yes but materials must be extra
[1:23] <gordonDrogon> plugwash, Entanet (via a reseller) and AAISP offer IPv6 - maybe others..
[1:23] <earl2> so we're at, rpi, this adc, a charger, breadboard, and that conducive foam cut up...plus some wires
[1:23] <earl2> not charger, sorry i meant power adapter
[1:23] <gordonDrogon> earl2, depends on what it's made on and how "pretty"... needs maybe connectors, screw terminas, etc.
[1:24] <earl2> assuming it doesn't have to be pretty at all and can be a bare board
[1:24] <gordonDrogon> earl2, I'm not going to make this for you, but you're looking at my time: ?300 plus the bits - probably ?50.
[1:24] <earl2> since this is a proof of concept
[1:24] <plugwash> gordonDrogon, sure but I'm not sure i'd count either of those as major
[1:24] <earl2> but that's full a full day. what if you only make the schematic for me, ship me the parts, and don't assemble it yourself?
[1:24] <gordonDrogon> what is it that you're trying to do anyway? what's the project?
[1:24] <earl2> this would take like 30 minutes no?
[1:25] <gordonDrogon> plugwash, major in the niche market ...
[1:25] <earl2> gordonDrogon, the project is a bit proprietary, I am writing software for it as a proof of concept
[1:25] <earl2> but I am very bad with hardware...I can handle it once it's in software though
[1:25] <earl2> if you are serious about wanting to bill a whole day for this assembly then maybe i could do a deferred portion as there is a contract behind this as well.
[1:26] <gordonDrogon> the circuit is a fairly simple join the dots one. I'd need to go & read the datasheet for the chip to see what it needs, but it dodn't look like much more than the usual decoupling.
[1:26] <earl2> otherwise 300 pounds is a bit excessive, that's like ten rpi's.
[1:26] <earl2> I don't mean to question your daily rate I just mean it wouldn't take you 8 hours
[1:26] <gordonDrogon> earl2, I do not want to build this for you - I don't have the time right now. I was just giving you those numbers as an example.
[1:26] <earl2> oh, okay
[1:26] <gordonDrogon> and I charge per day.
[1:26] <earl2> I do appreciate them
[1:27] <gordonDrogon> right now, it's silly late UK time and time for bed.

[3:00] <sheldor> hi
[3:00] <vjacob> http://www.raspberrypi.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/BCM2835-ARM-Peripherals.pdf is bloody fantastic, isn't it?
[3:00] <sheldor> hey does the rpi hardware-wise disable the wifi as soon as some lan wire is plugged in?
[3:00] <sheldor> at least that is what i witness on raspbian
[3:00] <sheldor> any idea why?
[3:00] <Laice> think i'll give wicd-curses a miss i just removed the python dev files lol
[3:01] * naicamine (~naicamine@99-63-0-230.lightspeed.stlsmo.sbcglobal.net) has joined #raspberrypi

[3:03] <sheldor> like keypressssssssssses got repeated or omtted entrly
[3:03] <Laice> sheldor: definately power then mate. how much you got hooked up to it?
[3:03] <BigShip> sheldor: the keyboard issue is definitely power related
[3:03] <sheldor> hmmm
[3:03] <sheldor> dman iT!
[3:03] <sheldor> i got a 2A usb hub
[3:03] <sheldor> and it still isnt enough?
[3:04] <Laice> see it's even pushing buttons in the wrong order now! :P
[3:04] <sheldor> i only got a wireless gamepad, a wireless keyboard, and a wireless lan adapter
[3:04] <MAN-AT-ARMS> i had that when i used a keyboard with a usb hub built into it
[3:04] <sheldor> also why would plugging in a lan wire draw power?
[3:04] <Laice> i think you may have a wireless addiction.
[3:04] <sheldor> lol
[3:04] <MAN-AT-ARMS> enet has to transmit signal
[3:04] <Laice> where does the power come from on a lan wire if not from the device?
[3:04] <sheldor> yes
[3:04] <BigShip> sheldor: I maxed out my power with keyboard, usb, and mouse
[3:05] <sheldor> MAN-AT-ARMS: but wouldnt that be negligible?
[3:05] <sheldor> BigShip: how many amps?
[3:05] <MAN-AT-ARMS> not when youre only dealing with very small amount of power
[3:05] <MAN-AT-ARMS> the enet..is a usb enet adapter
[3:05] <vjacob> any of you using alternative power sources?
[3:05] <sheldor> i mean enet is simply a signal on a cable
[3:05] <BigShip> just using a straight up cellphone charger
[3:06] <sheldor> should be micronanocurrents
[3:06] <MAN-AT-ARMS> but its a usb adapter built onto the board
[3:06] <Laice> got the raspbian image down to 671MB \o/
[3:06] <sheldor> it doesnt have to drive a hdd motor or has to send signals into the air
[3:06] <sheldor> imagine i was planning to drive a hdd on the same psu! :(
[3:06] <Shift_> Laice, you're doing it wrong. Start with a base and build up.
[3:06] <sheldor> damn it
[3:06] <sheldor> so i need a 4A psu or what?
[3:06] <Laice> dont you dare say arch to me
[3:06] <sheldor> i need to measure what is going on
[3:06] <vjacob> BigShip: how is it connected?
[3:07] <Shift_> Laice, I don't need to since you already know it's better, but you can also start with a minimal raspbian image or bootstrap your own.
[3:08] <sheldor> it is still weird that raspbian seems to instantly disable wifi as soon as ethernet is plugged in
[3:08] <Laice> Shift_: had so much trouble trying to find a working minimal raspbian, not sure on bootstrap, never looked into it
[3:08] <Laice> it's a power issue.
[3:08] <sheldor> it doest randomly drop and connect back
[3:08] <sheldor> it simply shuts off
[3:08] <Laice> not enough power = devine not functioning.
[3:08] <Laice> device*
[3:09] <sheldor> Laice: then why would i choose the wifi exactly?
[3:09] <sheldor> it doesnt randomly power off other devices
[3:09] <sheldor> it all looks pretty planned and deliberate instead of a power issue
[3:09] <sheldor> are you sure it isnt a raspbian thing?
[3:09] <Laice> positive.

[3:10] <Laice> with a wired keyboard, wired mouse, hdmi etc in
[3:10] <sheldor> oh yeah i forgot hdmi
[3:10] <Laice> it's the wireless keyboard and mouse that's screwing you
[3:10] <sheldor> Laice: you think they draw much?
[3:11] <sheldor> its a wireless keyboard + wireless gamepad
[3:11] <Laice> that would do it
[3:11] <Laice> so that's 2 recievers needing power
[3:11] <sheldor> Laice: interestingly the gamepad has no issues at all, but the keyboard has

[4:01] <daaku> anyone here using their pi as a wifi access point? i'm wondering how well it can perform and what the bottleneck tends to be (wifi adapter, cpu, memory or something else?)

[5:09] <dr_willis> can it actually do snes at playable speeds? I tried some piMame disrot..and it could barely handle some simple arcade games
[5:10] <BigShip> ParkerR: because I feel like using my desktop for emulation is stupid, and it could be something fun I could use my Pi for until I find a better use
[5:10] <ParkerR> dr_willis, That's just because MAME is CPU intensive

[7:01] <cougarten> what was the command for the raspian set-up script that shows upon first boot again?
[7:01] <rikkib> raspi-config
[7:01] <cougarten> ty
[7:01] <rikkib> np
[7:02] <cougarten> i'm an electronics noob, but the GIO pins should be either +3,3v or GND depending on whether they are high or low, right?
[7:04] <valdeEdius> Is it possible to get USB OTG (On-The-Go) compatibility on the raspi?
[7:06] <dr_willis> no idea what otg even is.. ;-)
[7:06] <cougarten> :)
[7:06] <cougarten> USB client instead of host
[7:06] <dr_willis> sounds like a marketing buzzword.
[7:07] <dr_willis> oh. i got some tablets that do that.
[7:07] <ShiftPlusOne> cougarten, aye... except for the gnd, 3.3v and 5v pins... which should obviously stay where they are
[7:07] <cougarten> ShiftPlusOne, ok, than i screwed up with the mosfets :) thank you
[7:08] <ShiftPlusOne> cougarten, used 5v?
[7:09] <cougarten> for what?
[7:09] <cougarten> cougarten, i use a mosfet to regulate a 4,5 (planning on using 12v with 2 ampere) current for some LEDs.
[7:09] <cougarten> whops, talking to my self :)
[7:09] <ShiftPlusOne> ShiftPlusOne, ah, right.
[7:11] <cougarten> when i plug the controling pin of the mosfets in the +4,5v line or the GND of the same power source it works as expected, but on my raspi it does nothing. (even touching the 3,3v und GND pin doesnt to much)
[7:11] <valdeEdius> Essentially the idea is to be able to use a raspi to communicate via usb with a computer. I'm not sure if the usb/charging port already does this?
[7:11] <cougarten> well, i guess i should wait for a gertboard before i fry md chip
[7:11] <valdeEdius> *simultaneously while computer communicates with it.
[7:12] <dr_willis> chargeing port is just chargeing
[7:12] <cougarten> valdeEdius, from what i googled it's at least easier with the model-A, if not only possible with that. The model-B has a build-in hub in the way
[7:12] <dr_willis> i recall reading's
[7:13] * Lupinedk is now known as lupinedk
[7:13] <valdeEdius> Ooooh. Good to know, thank you cougarten.
[7:13] <cougarten> dr_willis, right, charging port is different, BUT you can supply power with one of the other USB sockets too
[7:14] <dr_willis> power the pi from the other ports?
[7:15] <cougarten> dr_willis, try using a powered USB-hub. you can remove the power from the pi and it keeps running :)
[7:16] <dr_willis> i have 2 powered hubs on mine.. and it dosent keep running as far as ive noticed
[7:16] <cougarten> oh... for me it does and i read so elsewhere too
[7:16] <dr_willis> one hub is plugged into the power pi conector and the usb port
[7:17] <cougarten> now i need to find my powered one again :)
[7:17] <dr_willis> ill look tomorrow. but i just unplug the little power cable and it powers off i thought
[7:18] <cougarten> dr_willis, my hub is in my sleeping flatmates room...
[7:18] <valdeEdius> Would it be possible to send keyboard signals _from_ the pi to a windows box?
[7:19] <valdeEdius> I'm not sure otg is even exactly what I'm looking for.
[7:19] <dr_willis> you want the pi to emulate a keybord
[7:20] <valdeEdius> Yes.
[7:20] <asaru> i have seen drivers to emulate keyboards on the pi
[7:20] <asaru> usually for snes controllers or things like that to work in emus
[7:20] * Linovia (~textual@put92-4-82-231-49-9.fbx.proxad.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[7:20] <asaru> but i would imagine it wouldnt be too hard to send those signals over gpio instead of to the kernel
[7:21] <asaru> im sure it could be done
[7:21] <valdeEdius> My objective is to be able to plug a usb cord into a windows machine and have it recognize as a generic keyboard without driver necessity.
[7:22] <cougarten> valdeEdius, what for :) ?
[7:22] <asaru> yeah, sounds interesting
[7:22] <valdeEdius> I'd like to try hooking it up to a camera, and letting it build patterns of what I do.
[7:22] <valdeEdius> And then see if it can replicate patterns that are similar but unique.
[7:23] <valdeEdius> Or notice that I'm doing something repetitious and chime in to do it for me.
[7:23] <rikkib> Ahh Dinner has arrived
[7:25] <dr_willis> build your own connectx
[7:26] <valdeEdius> It could probably learn to play silly flash games for example by analyzing the combinations of colors on the screen, it would follow your mouse and notice the distinction of where you click. If it could gather enough data from the computer, it could pull id's from windows you click on and learn what you click followed by what you type and fill it all in for you when it sees you start the process to a sufficient degree.
[7:27] <cougarten> valdeEdius, found a post with a silly solution :) (arduino in between) http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=3723

[7:35] <ShiftPlusOne> pi can only be a usb host afaik, no pin bending will change that.
[7:36] <dr_willis> was playing around with omxplayer yesterday and noticed that if i setup mc to play a video file in omxplayer. that for some reason omxplayer dosent seem to be getting the keybord inputs. but they stay in mc. also noticed it occasionaly does this if i start omxplayer directly..
[7:36] <valdeEdius> Yah, that's what I was thinking.
[7:36] <piney> model a has a chance of doing that. depends on the broadcom driver i guess
[7:36] <dr_willis> i had to ssh in and kill omxplayer. anyone else seen a similer issue?
[7:36] <valdeEdius> That's fine. I'll write it down and get to it later =].
[7:38] <valdeEdius> ShiftPlusOne, I read this concerning Model A: " just route the fifth pin (ID pin) right next to the GPIO/UART/SPI/I2C? pins. That way, regular folks get their USB ports, and hackers can build an OTG port if they so please."
[7:39] <ShiftPlusOne> USB is too much voodoo for me personally
[7:39] <valdeEdius> I don't mean bend the pin literally. But route to other pins achieves the ability to act as a device.
[7:39] <valdeEdius> lol

[7:58] <Tachyon`> my 20GB IDE will be getting replaced with one
[7:58] <Tachyon`> yeah, I need to upgrade my NAS but hard disks are still expensive
[7:58] <Tachyon`> also, what drives are reliable atm (answer: none of them but WD are slightly better than the rest)
[7:58] <dr_willis> seen 3TB in the $120 range
[7:59] <Tachyon`> 2TB Caviar Green seem the most cost effective atm
[7:59] <dr_willis> saw some 'nas ready RED' drives listed the other day in the $160 range.. not sure how they differ
[7:59] <Tachyon`> could get 5 of those, have 4 in the NAS and 1 spare
[7:59] <Tachyon`> yeah, I've seen those, there's nothing that justifies the price
[7:59] <Tachyon`> the green ones will be fine anyway, I'm not too bothered about them powering down when not in use

[8:02] <Tachyon`> they're just poor quality
[8:02] <cougarten> i don't even speak of ripping seams, it really crumbles... all on its own
[8:03] <Tachyon`> my sandisks are all in one piece
[8:03] * ShiftPlusOne tries not to go on a rant about his pandora still not being here.
[8:03] <dr_willis> i get a varity of them from differnt makers.. so i can tell them apart.
[8:03] <Tachyon`> I took the sensible route and paid the ??100 premium to get one on ebay about 2 years ago
[8:03] <ShiftPlusOne> I know, we've already had this discussion =D
[8:03] <Tachyon`> after seeing the way the wind was blowing re preorders
[8:03] <Tachyon`> ahh
[8:04] <Tachyon`> did I mention the girl sold it because she preferred the caanoo for some reason
[8:04] <ShiftPlusOne> nope O_o
[8:04] <cougarten> I own a Kingston DataTraveler stick that has been in the washing mashine for weeks. Part of the shielding broke off and there was a little rust, but it still worked.
[8:04] <ShiftPlusOne> What the hell can it do than a pandora can't? O_o
[8:04] <Tachyon`> nothing, it's just cheaper and arrived on time
[8:05] <Tachyon`> I've never bought such devices
[8:05] * jelatta (~jelatta@c-24-2-153-77.hsd1.ct.comcast.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[8:05] <Tachyon`> as I have a PSP which is very suited to emulators
[8:05] <ShiftPlusOne> Well, at least I upgraded to the 1ghz unit, so hopefully I'll get it in the next few years =D
[8:06] <Tachyon`> I was goign to buy one of the new ones
[8:06] <cougarten> my girlfriend used to play pokemon on my mp3 player :) rockbox linux for the win
[8:06] <dr_willis> Not even sure what a Pandora is.. ;)
[8:06] <Tachyon`> until I saw the ???666 price
[8:06] <Tachyon`> ah, rockbox
[8:06] <Tachyon`> I had that on my ipod video
[8:06] <Tachyon`> I was able to run spectrum games on it
[8:06] <cougarten> right :)
[8:06] <ShiftPlusOne> cougarten, +1. I remember getting really strange looks when people saw me playing doom and such on an ipod back when they were still black and white.
[8:06] <cougarten> today i got another player from ebay, repaired the broken power button, but couldn't get it back together!...
[8:07] <Tachyon`> WoW has pokemon in it now
[8:07] <Tachyon`> and trainers and so on
[8:07] <cougarten> WoW?
[8:07] <Tachyon`> http://www.pokenet.co.uk/misc/images.games/wow.retail/WoWScrnShot_010313_075512.jpg
[8:07] <Tachyon`> yeah, they're going to get sued
[8:08] <cougarten> wtf :)
[8:09] <cougarten> is there any limit to the mpeg-2 quality on the raspberry? i know there is one for the h264
[8:09] <Tachyon`> there's always a limit
[8:09] <Tachyon`> but given how it handles my collection of media
[8:10] <Tachyon`> it's a high limit
[8:10] <Tachyon`> I have one film that's 13GiB and it played that without stuttering or anything
[8:11] <asaru> 13gib? what codec/container?
[8:11] <Tachyon`> mkv, h264, not sure which variant
[8:11] <Tachyon`> it was an HD copy of V for Vendetta
[8:12] <Tachyon`> but regardless it played it with no skipping, raspbmc also seems to handle audio better than omxplayer in that it doesn't skip on my trek films
[8:12] <asaru> nice
[8:12] <Tachyon`> as while the video is hardware decoded the audio is not
[8:12] <Tachyon`> and omxplayer used to choke on some 7.1 stuff
[8:13] <Tachyon`> the wrath of khan in particular
[8:13] <Tachyon`> (HD remaster)
[8:15] <sheldor> is there any way to change the console colors like CYAN, RED, BLUE, ETC in linux? like put actual rgb colors instead

[8:22] <dr_willis> there is a fbterm (a console terminal program) that might let you do it. but i havent looked into it much
[8:23] <dr_willis> the blue of the console is a little hard to read at times
[8:23] <Tachyon`> I'm trying to remember if there's an escape sequence to tell the terminal to redefine its colours
[8:24] <Tachyon`> I vaguely remember reading something of the sort but can't remember where

[8:24] <dr_willis> theres numerous frambufer files - but i havent looked into them in ages either
[8:25] <dr_willis> i was just looking at the pacvkages and saw 'fbterm' i think. and was toying with it on the framebuffer. it lets you have a terminal with differnt fonts and othe rfeatures
[8:25] <dr_willis> on the console
[8:25] * trijntje (~quassel@ubuntu/member/trijntje) has joined #raspberrypi
[8:25] <dr_willis> so if it can change fonts.. it might let you change colors
[8:26] <dr_willis> This 'text windowing enviroment' i used years ago seemed to have vanished. It let you have multi terminals on the console. with the old dos type ascii-graphics/windows interface. ascii-boxs with a terminal in each window.
[8:27] <dr_willis> was looking for it yesterday. it would be nice on a large console like the pi has
[8:28] <Tachyon`> there's still screen
[8:28] <Tachyon`> also splitvt does at least let you have two terminals
[8:28] <Tachyon`> or more if you run it more than once
[8:28] <dr_willis> sourceforge.net/projects/twin/
[8:28] <dr_willis> there we go
[8:28] * trijntje (~quassel@ubuntu/member/trijntje) Quit (Client Quit)

[8:32] <Tachyon`> I wonder if there was some security issue with it
[8:32] <dr_willis> i think it had a single developer.. and hes moved on..
[8:33] <dr_willis> from what im reading
[8:33] <dr_willis> Its really a neat idea.
[8:33] <dr_willis> may have to try to get it going this weekend. but my coding skills are very low
[8:34] * mdorenka (mdorenka@eris-svr01.uni-mannheim.de) has joined #raspberrypi
[8:34] <dr_willis> years ago i had irssi setup with twin where differnt windows had differnt channels.. ;) i think it was irssi. i used fifos and some wonky bash stuff
[8:34] <Tachyon`> might be interesting for use on my phone actually
[8:35] <Tachyon`> which I've put debian on
[8:35] <Tachyon`> reminds me of some of the old dos apps, lol
[8:35] <dr_willis> Yea - last i used twin it had a X mode where it would work in X, and console modes. You could connect diffenrt machines to the same twin 'session' and have a shared terminal desktop basically
[8:35] <Tachyon`> borland stuff etc.
[8:36] <dr_willis> Yep - exactly like the old dos text gui stuff
[8:36] <dr_willis> I think i had to set the console font to be a specifc one also for it to work right
[8:36] <dr_willis> or at least look right
[8:36] <Tachyon`> aye, some editing there might be needed
[8:37] <dr_willis> get twin going. and figure out how to make omxplayer stay in the top right corner.. ;) and play videos
[8:37] <Tachyon`> and perhaps updates so it can receive mouse events from putty
[8:37] <Tachyon`> that might not be possible
[8:37] <Tachyon`> I think omxplayer just throws the viedo at the chipset
[8:37] <dr_willis> I dont recall ever using it over putty
[8:37] <Tachyon`> I don't think you can specify the size or anything
[8:37] <cougarten> twin looks cool for ssh :)
[8:38] <dr_willis> cougarten: ;) yep. every so often i rember using it.. and keep hopeing it will get revived
[8:38] <dr_willis> the benifit of open source.... old cool stuff comming back..
[8:38] <Tachyon`> I'm inclined to have a crack at it
[8:38] <Tachyon`> it might be handy used on an HD TV in console mode with an 8x16 font
[8:38] <dr_willis> well ill help.. but i cant cod emuch
[8:38] <Tachyon`> get quite a lot done then
[8:39] <cougarten> which player is best for videos? i just installed mplayer but remember the namo omxplayer
[8:39] <cougarten> console only is fine
[8:39] <Tachyon`> the lastest revision was last year
[8:39] <Tachyon`> after a long pause
[8:39] <dr_willis> omxplayer is basically the ONLY video player for the pi. ;)
[8:39] <ShiftPlusOne> not so much a matter of what's best, but a matter of what actually works... your only choice is omxplayer.
[8:39] <dr_willis> Tachyon`: yea. the 'twtools' package seem to not been updated since 2001 i think heh
[8:40] <Tachyon`> it only goes up to 0.2
[8:40] <Tachyon`> presumably it was integrated from 0.3 onwards
[8:40] * matejv (~matej@tm.78.153.58.66.dc.cable.static.telemach.net) Quit (Ping timeout: 248 seconds)
[8:40] <Tachyon`> as the main app is up to 0.6
[8:41] <cougarten> ah, cool :)
[8:41] <Tachyon`> raspbmc handles what omx doesn't
[8:41] <Tachyon`> namely difficult audio decoding
[8:41] <cougarten> can i auto-start an app (omxplayer) upon boot without x?
[8:41] * m8 (~mor@unaffiliated/m8) has joined #raspberrypi
[8:42] <asaru> vlc does not work?
[8:42] <Tachyon`> yes
[8:42] <Tachyon`> well, no
[8:42] <Tachyon`> you can run omxplayer without x
[8:42] <Tachyon`> autostarting would be odd as you have to supply it a filename to play
[8:42] <Tachyon`> you'd have to write a shell or something if you wanted that
[8:42] <asaru> if you want like a kiosk, where it'll just play the same video over and over again, thats easy
[8:42] * mrcan (~mrcan@unaffiliated/mrcan) has joined #raspberrypi
[8:42] <ShiftPlusOne> asaru, vlc doesn't to omx, so you wpm
[8:43] <dr_willis> raspbmc uses omxolayer i think
[8:43] <ShiftPlusOne> won't have accelerated decoding
[8:43] <ShiftPlusOne> (hand slipped)
[8:43] <Tachyon`> whatever raspbmc uses, the audio decoding is superior to omxplayer
[8:43] <Tachyon`> although I think it is using hardwrae for the video decoding
[8:43] <asaru> oh, vlc wont do hardware decoding?
[8:43] * Tachyon` turns on the TV to play with twin and realises he's half way thorugh b5 thirdspace
[8:43] <ShiftPlusOne> originally omxplayer was a backsend for xbmc written for the pi. It was hacked out as a standalone program.
[8:44] <dr_willis> or its pasding an option to omcplayer
[8:44] <cougarten> Tachyon`, i want to drop a video.m2v or something on to the SD and have it auto-play in a loop when i flip the power-strip on
[8:44] <Tachyon`> oh right, that is as metnioned easy then
[8:44] <Tachyon`> although seems a bit of a waste
[8:44] <Tachyon`> is it for an advert/sign or something
[8:44] <cougarten> why :) ?
[8:44] <ShiftPlusOne> dr_willis, xbmc (and therefore raspbmc) still uses omxplayer, but I guess there are some differences between the backend and standalone omxplayer.
[8:45] <dr_willis> these things are getting updated fast.
[8:45] <cougarten> Tachyon`, it's for exhibitions of video stuff
[8:45] <cougarten> Tachyon`, but just for me and friends, nothing comercial for now d)
[8:45] <cougarten> :)
[8:46] <asaru> cougarten: just add your omxplayer command to teh end of /etc/profile
[8:46] <cougarten> asaru, cool, thank you
[8:46] <dr_willis> or rc.local
[8:46] <asaru> or that
[8:47] <dr_willis> depends on the dustro
[8:48] <asaru> or in inittab
[8:48] <dr_willis> i had issues running omxplayer stand alone.. it would like lose focus. keys got sent to the underlaying shell
[8:48] <asaru> but that would be weird
[8:49] * Toumasu (~brijsthom@78-21-4-68.access.telenet.be) has joined #raspberrypi
[8:49] <asaru> in inittab replace getty with omxplayer, no underlying shell.. would that work?
[8:49] <dr_willis> a little overkill
[8:49] <dr_willis> :-P
[8:49] <asaru> so
[8:49] <axion> replace init itself :)
[8:49] <asaru> lol
[8:50] <axion> i run a lisp image like that
[8:50] <axion> nothing but a kernel and development environment :)
[8:50] <dr_willis> init=/bin/omxplayer hotties.avi
[8:50] <asaru> hah
[8:51] <dr_willis> i seem to recall some geexbox feature like that years ago
[8:51] <dr_willis> a self playing video cd
[8:51] <asaru> well if you replace tty1 with omxplayer, you can still altf2 over to another tty if needed
[8:52] <dr_willis> you just cant see tty2 if its playing
[8:52] <asaru> hmm
[8:52] <asaru> but, this way if theres no underlying shell running, maybe your omxplayer wouldnt lose focus
[8:52] <dr_willis> and if tty3 has focus.. cant quit omxolayer

[10:13] <knoppies> enthusi, my number one choice is vlc. I havent used mplayer
[10:13] <randomdev> when i shutdown the pi.. is there a way to get it booted again without unplugging and replugging it ?
[10:13] <knoppies> randomdev, I dont think so. Does the Pi support wol?
[10:13] <ShiftPlusOne> randomdev, yes, there is wake from halt functionality.
[10:13] <knoppies> ShiftPlusOne, how do you do that?
[10:14] <ShiftPlusOne> You need to update the firmware, then you can restart it by shorting two of the gpio pins.
[10:14] <ShiftPlusOne> http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=29&t=24682
[10:14] <DDave> hey is there a possibility of bringing the leds out to the case?
[10:14] <DDave> (without massively soldering onto the pcb itself..)
[10:14] <jelly1> randomdev: by rebooting :P

[10:15] <jelly1> ShiftPlusOne: interesting :o
[10:15] <ShiftPlusOne> DDave, there are these light guide things in some cases which do that.
[10:15] <DDave> Like a small optical fibre
[10:15] <randomdev> hmm does wake on lan work ?
[10:15] <DDave> that "routes" the light?
[10:16] <ShiftPlusOne> DDave, basically just a chunk of plastic in the right shape, but yeah, the same idea.
[10:16] <DDave> Well it has to guide the light somehow..
[10:16] <DDave> let me google that :)
[10:17] <ShiftPlusOne> Check the Iceberg case for an example
[10:17] <earl2> hi gordonDrogon, you around?
[10:17] <DDave> oh,thats smart! Ty ShiftPlusOne !
[10:17] <ShiftPlusOne> np
[10:18] <ShiftPlusOne> http://elinux.org/images/d/df/DSC02045-p.JPG
[10:18] <DDave> looks good, now to figure out how I could DIY that..
[10:19] <ShiftPlusOne> I think you just need clear plastic that's a bit less clear at the end so that the light diffuses there.
[10:19] <ShiftPlusOne> but there might be more magic to it

[10:19] <DDave> and some "law of reflection" from physics
[10:19] <DDave> should do it
[10:19] <ShiftPlusOne> like actually worrying about the refraction angle or whatever
[10:19] <randomdev> anyone use openelec/xbmc and mysql database ?
[10:20] <DDave> yep, nothing better than some tests though :) Ill have a try and I might make a guide if I get it working!
[10:21] <earl2> hi, Datalink
[10:22] <ShiftPlusOne> DDave, physics-wise (and I am going from memory here), if you know the refractive index n, you can figure out the angle for total internal reflection and make sure your plastic doesn't bend more than that, then diffuse it at the end and it should be fine.
[10:22] <DDave> exactly :)
[10:22] <DDave> The only difficulty is finding plastic (for me, I live in a silly country..)
[10:23] <ShiftPlusOne> In what country is plastic unobtainable?
[10:23] <DDave> You would be surprised how hard it will be to find thick enough plastic
[10:23] <DDave> that doesnt come with a minimum order of 100 tons.. xD
[10:23] <DDave> ShiftPlusOne, Luxembourg, 450k inhabitants
[10:23] <ShiftPlusOne> Hmm... acrylic glass has a critical angle of 41.8 degrees according to wikipedia, so that's plenty to work with.
[10:23] <ShiftPlusOne> nice
[10:24] <DDave> afaik I can bend it with some heat
[10:24] <randomdev> hmm crap, looks like openelec xbmc and normal xbmc using different database tables
[10:24] <RaTTuS|BIG> use fiber optic strands from a old fiber lamp ...
[10:25] <DDave> RaTTuS|BIG, smart too :) I shall have a look at what I can find
[10:25] <randomdev> maybe like some plastic cutlery ?
[10:25] <DDave> acrylic would be better imho as it will not move one the case is setup, for fiber youll have to clue it or something
[10:25] <ShiftPlusOne> Maybe build and oil rig and refine your own plastic
[10:25] <ShiftPlusOne> make millions
[10:25] <DDave> :D
[10:27] <neilr> Use small photo sensitive cells in front of the on-board LEDs. Route the input to the GPIO. Then analyse which LEDs are on, and power another set of LEDs on the outside of the case. No need for fibre-optics :)
[10:27] <RaTTuS|BIG> ;-p
[10:29] <ShiftPlusOne> Use festival to speak whenever the ACCT light flashes to let you know
[10:29] <neilr> Only problem with Festival is that it seems to take 100% of the CPU when speaking, and everything else stops
[10:30] <ShiftPlusOne> Yeah, the only problem.
[10:30] <neilr> I tried using it in my version of Elite on Raspbian - the game stopped whenever it was called
[10:30] <DDave> Well ty for all the tips, Ill see what I can do

[10:36] <dr_willis> on some of the better/cleaner ones you could 'see' through them and look around corners. ;)
[10:38] <dr_willis> could glue some into a pi case and get the leds viewable. but ive no idea how you cut the stuff. I think the electrians have some sort of kit with special knife/polishing compoind for the ends

[10:53] <ShiftPlusOne> chances are that each one of your 12 'sensors' will give different resistances as well
[10:53] <earl2> that's fne by me

[10:57] <BasBenIk> Hey Guys, I have multiple raspberry pi's and I'm going to use them as an easy way to show a fullscreen webpage to display interesting information. I already setup one raspberry and made an image so I can copy them to the others for easy setting up. But I want to make it even simpler, because now I have to SSH them and change the ip and wireless network information and stuff, also I want to use them on different places. So I would be n
[10:57] <BasBenIk> I could change the configuration beforehand for each individual PI for easy set-up. Can someone explain me an easy way or point me in the right direction?
[10:57] <ShiftPlusOne> earl2, they are tricky to find in a form you can easily use on a breadboard.
[10:58] <Gr33n3gg> BasBenIk: you might want to check out puppet for configuration
[10:58] <earl2> I see.
[10:59] <kippi> Amadiro: so you think it's the hub?
[10:59] <earl2> considering that i dont know anything about this...what is the alternative to a breadboard?
[10:59] <BasBenIk> I was thinking something of an extra config.txt or something that I can access when I put the SD in my mac and use that variables on startup or something, but I have no idea where to start
[10:59] <BasBenIk> Thanks Gr33n3gg I will look into that
[11:00] <ShiftPlusOne> earl2, a veroboard/stripboard, but that won't help you much either in this case, you'll have to solder if you don't use a chip that comes in a DIP package.
[11:00] <Gr33n3gg> BasBenIk: that's if you want a unified configuration
[11:01] <Tachyon`> heh, got twin built, runs, soon as I execute a command, segfault, lol
[11:01] <earl2> ShiftPlusOne - how long does solderin like that take?
[11:02] <neilr> earl2: why not buy a cheap soldering iron and learn? It's a good skill to have, and not expensive.
[11:02] <ShiftPlusOne> earl2, depends on the specific package type. Some can be very problematic and take a lot of experience to get right on the first go.

[11:52] <gordonDrogon> lives in hungary I think. seems hard to get electronics, etc. there in a hurry...
[11:53] <aDro> I am wondering if it is possible to get this bluetooth adapter working.
[11:53] <gordonDrogon> I know nothing about bluetooth, other than using my headset with my phone when in the car...
[11:53] <aDro> What about getting it working on RPi?
[11:53] * pippin (~pippin@li146-77.members.linode.com) has left #raspberrypi
[11:53] <aDro> http://www.elinux.org/RPi_VerifiedPeripherals#USB_Bluetooth_adapters
[11:54] <ShiftPlusOne> aDro, what's the problem?
[11:54] <ShiftPlusOne> I had a keyboard working through bluetooth just fine.
[11:54] <aDro> IOGear GBU321 (Broadcom BCM2045 Chipset) works fine, but I can't seem to get the Broadcom BCM2046 working
[11:55] <aDro> I wonder if it's impossible, and I have googled this
[11:55] <aDro> One good thread went no where.
[11:55] <ShiftPlusOne> and I am guessing you're not a linux noob and know how to investigate that sort of thing, yeah?
[11:55] <aDro> I am bordering on noob
[11:55] <ShiftPlusOne> What's the hardware id of the dongle?
[11:56] <ShiftPlusOne> actually nvrm the chipset gives plenty
[11:57] <aDro> Bus 001 Device 014: ID 0a5c:4500 Broadcom Corp. BCM2046B1 USB 2.0 Hub (part of BCM2046 Bluetooth)
[11:57] <ShiftPlusOne> if you unplug it, and then plug it back in, what's at the end of dmesg? does it load a driver or recognise it as a lbuetooth device?
[11:59] <aDro> sorry just a sec
[12:00] <aDro> http://pastebin.com/UJxRSHVK
[12:02] <aDro> I installed bluez-utils bluetooth and blueman
[12:02] <aDro> The little LED in the inside doesn't even turn on :(
[12:02] <ShiftPlusOne> So what is it exactly, if it a hub with built in bluetooth or something?
[12:03] <ShiftPlusOne> Why is is showing up as a hub and why is there a mouse and keyboard showing up as well O_o
[12:04] <aDro> there is a hib plugged in for the mouse and keyboard, but the bluetooth is attached to the board, let me unplug the hub, since I am not using it
[12:04] * mythos (~mythos@unaffiliated/mythos) has joined #raspberrypi
[12:05] <aDro> I just rest my unit
[12:05] * mgottschlag (~quassel@reactos/tester/phoenix64) has joined #raspberrypi
[12:05] <ShiftPlusOne> that dmesg log seems to show the hub being unplugged and plugged back in rather than the bluetooth dongle O_o
[12:05] <aDro> yeah, I noticed
[12:06] <aDro> strange
[12:06] <dr_willis> i need to try bt keybord again this werkend. i never did get it working
[12:07] <aDro> http://pastebin.com/KQP8Sz3D
[12:07] <aDro> That's after boot
[12:07] <ShiftPlusOne> yeah, it's working fine
[12:08] <aDro> $ sudo hciconfig -a
[12:08] <aDro> doesn't return any values
[12:09] <ShiftPlusOne> I'll let someone else take over then =/
[12:10] <ShiftPlusOne> what about hcitool dev ?
[12:10] <aDro> Devices:
[12:11] <ShiftPlusOne> and hciconfig -a doesn't even show the device at all?
[12:11] <aDro> not at all
[12:11] <ShiftPlusOne> can you post more of dmesg?
[12:12] <aDro> http://pastebin.com/VGTaMtvm
[12:13] <ShiftPlusOne> Again, I don't see where the device is being plugged in
[12:14] <aDro> If I unplug it and plug it back in, it will reset the device
[12:14] <aDro> I could use the hub
[12:14] <ShiftPlusOne> it restarts your pi?
[12:15] <aDro> yes
[12:15] <ShiftPlusOne> Yeah, then it's too power hungry to be used directly and needs a hub. Though by the looks of it, if your hub reset when you posted that original log, it sounds like it's too much even for your hub.
[12:18] <aDro> http://pastebin.com/Qr5FjWGS
[12:18] <aDro> That's the hub with no mouse and keyboard
[12:18] <aDro> and the dongle plugged in
[12:18] <ShiftPlusOne> but it says the mouse is there...
[12:18] <ShiftPlusOne> and keyboard
[12:20] <Matt> morning
[12:20] <ShiftPlusOne> ahoy here too
[12:21] <aDro> unplugged the hub, moved the dongle to where the mouse usually goes, plugged the hub back in
[12:21] <aDro> still thinks there is a keyboard and mouse
[12:21] <ShiftPlusOne> =/
[12:21] <aDro> Is it the hub?
[12:22] <ShiftPlusOne> probably a combination of the usb driver, the lan/usb hub chip that's on the pi and the hub you're using

[12:27] <CCW> yes I meant that
[12:27] <CCW> I plugged in the SD card and somehow it doesnt flash
[12:27] <ShiftPlusOne> CCW, failing to load the firmware on the card. It either can't find it or it can't read the card.
[12:27] <neilr> CCW: last time I had that it was a bent connector on the SD card socket, meaning the contacts weren't so goof.
[12:27] <neilr> good
[12:27] <neilr> (cold fingers)
[12:28] <CCW> oh, I already ordered a new RPI
[12:28] <CCW> but the problem still occur
[12:28] <ShiftPlusOne> can't have too much pi
[12:28] <ShiftPlusOne> incompatible sd card then
[12:28] <CCW> ShiftPlusOne: you are right
[12:28] <CCW> ShiftPlusOne: it worked before
[12:28] <CCW> and I tried two different SD
[12:28] <CCW> both worked a few days ago
[12:28] <ShiftPlusOne> how are you writting the image?
[12:29] <ShiftPlusOne> have you tried re-flashing?
[12:29] <aDro> sudo apt-get update will make that led blink
[12:29] <CCW> with rpi builder
[12:29] <CCW> and the last step always failed
[12:29] <ShiftPlusOne> no idea wth that is
[12:29] <CCW> ShiftPlusOne: a tool to write image on SD
[12:29] <ShiftPlusOne> windows?
[12:29] <CCW> I'm too lazy to write all in console
[12:30] <CCW> no, I think mac only
[12:30] <ShiftPlusOne> I think that's the problem... you're not writting the disc image properly. Might be the software's fault, not yours.
[12:31] * Sendoushi (~Musok@cm2-84-91-84-50.netvisao.pt) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)

SD or SDHC and what size and what kind of power supply i need some people said to get something called a 2A?
[13:01] <LilSnoop4> lol
[13:01] <ShiftPlusOne> You might be, but that was LilSnoop4's welcome... not yours!
[13:01] <steve_rox> :-(
[13:02] <cairne> the 2A is 2 amps
[13:02] <mjr> sd or sdhc both work, should preferrably be at least 2 gigs (the size of the official images) though more if you ... need more ;)
[13:03] <cairne> LilSnoop4: http://elinux.org/RPi_VerifiedPeripherals has a good list of working peripherals
[13:03] <mjr> note that class 10 isn't necessarily faster than class 4 or 6 in pi use, since class 10s are optimized for sequential large file access and pi does lots more random access
[13:03] <LilSnoop4> i am located in the us been trying to shop around on amazon and what not for the last part
[13:03] <LilSnoop4> k mjr
[13:03] <LilSnoop4> so i was thinking about a 8gb card
[13:04] <cairne> are you going to be running any files of sd card or just using it for the image?
[13:05] * int3nz0r (~int3nz0r@86.86.66.141) has joined #raspberrypi
[13:05] <asaru> depending on how you setup xbmc, if you have a rediculous amount of media, it stores the fanart and such in your homedir
[13:05] <asaru> that may or may not make a difference for you
[13:06] <LilSnoop4> cairne not sure, i basically wanna use the raspberry for xbmc and the addons like navi-x and others
[13:06] <LilSnoop4> i currenlty have appletv's wanna try something new
[13:06] <asaru> do you run xbmc on them?
[13:06] <LilSnoop4> yes
[13:07] <asaru> look at how much space your .xbmc dir takes up
[13:07] <cairne> LilSnoop4: i mean 2-8 gigs would be fine, I use a 2 gig card and with the usb stick trick and a usb harddrive
[13:07] <asaru> add 2 gigs and base your sd card purchase on that
[13:07] <LilSnoop4> think its only 184mb at the most
[13:07] <asaru> not a lot of fanart then
[13:07] <asaru> you'll be fine with a 2 or 4 then probably
[13:08] <LilSnoop4> maybe grab the 8 to be safe
[13:08] <asaru> you can also change things in some of the xbmc distros so that it stores that info elsewhere
[13:08] <LilSnoop4> oh, ok
[13:08] <asaru> i use a 16gb card for my xbian setup
[13:08] <LilSnoop4> k, maybe i get the 16 then
[13:08] <LilSnoop4> what card are you using you have a link
[13:08] <asaru> it has a ton of space left, and i have an absurd amount of media for it to save fanart and info for
[13:08] <cairne> wow, so is your xbian setup a standalone?
[13:09] <asaru> yeah
[13:09] <asaru> media is on the network
[13:09] <asaru> but it stores the fanart and such on the sdcard
[13:09] <cairne> 16gb card just seems like over kill lol but i mean they are pretty cheap now
[13:09] <asaru> yes they are
[13:09] <asaru> hehe
[13:09] <asaru> i ran out of space with a 4gb card, and just jumped straight to 16
[13:10] <LilSnoop4> thats what i figured they aren't too expensive
[13:10] <cairne> lol i ran out as soon as i got my pi got a 16 gb threw arch on there and i was like, wow that was a waste lol
[13:10] <LilSnoop4> i just wanna use for viewing those addon's here and there
[13:10] <asaru> oh
[13:10] <asaru> if its not scraping media it doesnt need that much space
[13:11] <LilSnoop4> is this ok http://www.amazon.com/SanDisk-Extreme-Class-Memory-SDSDX-016G-X46/dp/B0037FLUYU/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1358424575&sr=1-1&keywords=Sandisk+16GB+45MB%2FS+SD+Extreme+Video+Memory+Card+class+4
[13:11] <asaru> much faster than the one i have
[13:12] <asaru> im sure it would be fine
[13:12] <asaru> there is a verified peripherals list, you may want to check that out
[13:12] <LilSnoop4> k
[13:12] <cairne> i've had bad luck with sanDisk
[13:12] <LilSnoop4> oh
[13:12] <LilSnoop4> hmmm
[13:12] <cairne> not with the pi, just in general

[13:13] <asaru> apparently they moved sdcards from the list and gave them their own wiki page
[13:13] <cairne> but then again i reflash new images to my sd cards weekly lol
[13:13] <asaru> yeah
[13:13] <asaru> well i would imagine a lot of people are swapping to sdcards
[13:13] <asaru> which cant be good in the long run lol
[13:14] <asaru> i wonder how much that really takes off of the life of the card
[13:14] * tsn (~tsn@563448d3.rev.stofanet.dk) has joined #raspberrypi
[13:14] <cairne> well i've read that solid state drives are 10 years or like 10k writes or something like that and the tranistors inside start to wear out
[13:15] <ShiftPlusOne> asaru, I am not sure that many people are swapping to sd on their rpis. The default raspbian swapiness is very low, so even if they have a swap partition, it's not going to be used unless they adjust the settings

[13:16] <asaru> cairne: where were you getting the sandisk sd cards?
[13:16] <mjr> occasional swapping is probably fine, but if you start to do something actually memory heavy and constantly swap, that'd be bad
[13:16] <cairne> i didnt know the pi could actually utilize a swap drive

[13:17] <cairne> asaru, if I don't care about the data, i'll get sanDisk from walmart
[13:17] <mjr> raspbian could have zram swap easily installable out of the box, if somebody's looking for a project ;P
[13:17] <asaru> its possible you just keep getting cheap knock-offs with sandisk labels
[13:17] <mjr> (it's essentially RAM compression)

[13:18] <cairne> asaru, its possible, but thats why i don't take the risk with sanDisk, if its important like for work i'll use corsair
[13:19] <asaru> thats probably a good idea
[13:19] <cairne> mjr: that does sound interesting, i wonder how much performance you would get
[13:19] <ShiftPlusOne> because the pi has that much cpu power to spare =D

[13:27] <aDro> Or something
[13:27] <aDro> Useless really.
[13:27] <cairne> he pecorade
[13:27] <cairne> hi
[13:27] <jelly1> lol zram isn't needed for me
[13:27] <jelly1> i never swap
[13:28] <cairne> you never had to use swap on your desktop?
[13:28] <jelly1> no, only for hibernation
[13:28] <cairne> well i guess now a days swap isnt needed as much
[13:29] <jelly1> it's usefull on servers
[13:29] <cairne> yea, but now that desktops can have an insane amount of memory with 64 bit computing
[13:29] <cairne> i still do it out of habit :/
[13:30] <cairne> has anyone vnc'd into their pi? how is the performance?
[13:31] <jelly1> cairne: seen people use it, it works
[13:32] * IT_Sean (~Ult_Ubunt@applefritter/IRCStaff/UltimateMacUser1) Quit (Quit: Quit)
[13:32] <cairne> jelly1: is it laggy at all? i mean its not hard for me to just plug it into the tv as normal now, just trying to practice sysadmining and trying to create my own little server with multiple clients
[13:32] * markllama (mlamouri@nat/redhat/x-zoqrwetwkvbrdotj) has joined #raspberrypi
[13:33] <cairne> figured with the server box, desktop, vm's laptop and 2 pi's i could really create some good headaches for myself
[13:33] <jelly1> i don't know if it's laggy
[13:33] <jelly1> cairne: ssh into it
[13:34] <cairne> yea i do that now, just wanted to try with graphical
[13:34] <LilSnoop4> question about the wifi dongle i currently use WPA2 Personal security will that work or no?
[13:34] <jelly1> depends on the dongle :p
[13:34] <ShiftPlusOne> yes, but are you getting a hub as well?
[13:35] <cairne> make sure you have a powerful power adapter if you connect it directly, wifi dongles eat up power like crazy
[13:35] <pksato> Linux server (Unix) are managend over a text terminal (serial console, telnet, ssh, etc)
[13:35] <ShiftPlusOne> cairne, the power adapter won't make a difference, since the current is limited on the input.
[13:35] <Datalink> apparently I need to start marking when I sleep or log off IRC or something...
[13:36] <cairne> pksato: my centos box is text based but i wanted to be able to remote view into my pi
[13:36] <jelly1> serial console for the pi would b e awesome
[13:36] <jelly1> *be awesome
[13:36] <sheldor> mjr: interesting, buying space for time
[13:36] <cairne> ShiftPlusOne: if I don't run my wifi adapter through a powered hub my pi wont boot
[13:36] <Datalink> jelly1, there's an easy way to do that
[13:36] <sheldor> i like that
[13:36] <jelly1> Datalink: :o
[13:36] <sheldor> mjr: can i buy time for space as generically too?
[13:36] <jelly1> Datalink: you have my attention!
[13:36] <ShiftPlusOne> cairne, exactly, and no matter what power supply you use with the pi, it won't help.
[13:36] <pksato> but, VNC is a slow protocol, and more slow with X11.
[13:36] <Datalink> jelly1, http://adafruit.com/products/954
[13:37] <jelly1> pksato: it is, but acceptable over LAN
[13:37] <ShiftPlusOne> jelly1, stop noobing around, you know this already!
[13:37] <jelly1> ShiftPlusOne: lol
[13:37] <LilSnoop4> was gonna order this dongle: http://www.amazon.com/Edimax-EW-7811Un-Wireless-Adapter-Wizard/dp/B005CLMJLU/
[13:37] <sheldor> stop noobing around!!
[13:37] <ShiftPlusOne> jelly1, you're acting like you just noticed the gpio pins =D
[13:37] <LilSnoop4> is setting up the wifi hard?
[13:37] <cairne> ShiftPlusOne: oh I had read you could increase the amperage slightly and get it to work
[13:37] <pksato> yes, if need to monitor some remote screen.
[13:37] <cairne> glad i never tried
[13:37] <jelly1> ShiftPlusOne: wait this stuff has pins :o
[13:37] <sheldor> LilSnoop4: no
[13:37] <sheldor> LilSnoop4: easiest from startx though
[13:38] <jelly1> btw freeNX is nice
[13:38] <sheldor> LilSnoop4: as hard as in windows
[13:38] <ShiftPlusOne> cairne, up to a point, but when you get higher than 750mA (and I am guessing your supply can do 1A just fine), it doesn't make a difference since that when the polyfuse trips.
[13:38] <Datalink> ShiftPlusOne, say it right, he was acting like he didn't know, and I was telling him
[13:38] <jelly1> ShiftPlusOne: wait i can make this myself , why should i buy this :P
[13:38] <jelly1> ohwait i won't have the usb -> serial conversion chip
[13:39] <Datalink> jelly1, you have a 3v3 serial to USB chip?
[13:39] <cairne> <3 adafruit, so much money sunk into there lol
[13:39] <sheldor> ShiftPlusOne: whats the max i can pump through the rpi with the polyfuse shorted?
[13:39] <jelly1> Datalink: nah, but the rest i have
[13:39] <jelly1> ;)
[13:39] <sheldor> i mean what will the rpi withstand
[13:39] <jelly1> cool stuff imo
[13:39] <ShiftPlusOne> sheldor, I don't know. I've asked around but couldn't get an answer.
[13:39] <sheldor> before it burns
[13:39] <sheldor> 5A?
[13:39] * zproc_ (~zproc@laf31-6-82-241-3-109.fbx.proxad.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[13:39] <sheldor> 50A?
[13:39] <jelly1> maybe I'll buy a case too
[13:39] <pksato> 750mA is ok, if PSU really deriver 3750mW.
[13:39] <ShiftPlusOne> probably less than 5A
[13:39] <sheldor> somebody should test it
[13:39] <sheldor> until it burns
[13:39] <sheldor> for science
[13:40] <cairne> god 50A would prolly fry it
[13:40] <ShiftPlusOne> I am guessing about 2A.... feel free to test. =)
[13:40] <Datalink> jelly1, ah, okay, well, it's 3v3, if you have a Max232 and a serial port on the centos box, then you should be okay
[13:40] <ShiftPlusOne> 50 would more than just 'fry'
[13:40] <Datalink> sheldor, I wouldn't run more than 1.5A with the traces on it
[13:40] <jelly1> Datalink: well actually i do have serial on this hp laptop docking station iirc :o
[13:40] <sheldor> Datalink: booo
[13:40] <LilSnoop4> Sheldor is startx another brand of wifi or os i'm sorry if that's a dumb question
[13:40] <cairne> I want a youtube video of someone doing that to a pi now
[13:40] <jelly1> startx is a command
[13:40] <cairne> startx is how you start the graphical enviroment
[13:40] <Datalink> jelly1, then you just have to look up max232 for 3v3 ttl logic... and build one, it takes a couple caps and resistors and a knowledge about ICs
[13:40] <jelly1> or xinit :p
[13:41] <LilSnoop4> ok, new to the raspberry pi
[13:41] <jelly1> Datalink: oh hmm effort
[13:41] <Datalink> jelly1, oh wah, effort
[13:41] <sheldor> LilSnoop4: its the desktop environment. the clikcy thing that looks like windows as compared to the black&white console
[13:41] <cairne> everywher I read that raspbian would boot to unix login first, however mine went right into lxde
[13:41] <jelly1> Datalink: :)
[13:41] <sheldor> LilSnoop4: you just click on access points that pop up in a list and enter your passphrase and click "ok"
[13:41] <Datalink> you'll learn something, be proud when you finish it, and have tons of reference (seriously, people've been doing the Max232 method for 30 years)
[13:42] <LilSnoop4> so my pc is a windows running windows 7 will it be hard for me to setup the wifi adapter when it comes. i thought the reviews from the people on that wifi dongle said no drivers need sets right up
[13:42] <jelly1> Datalink: :)
[13:42] <cairne> sheldor: do you have to install wlan first because mine didnt have wireless assistant out of box
[13:42] <jelly1> Datalink: yeah that's true ;)

[13:43] <Datalink> and has free samples :P
[13:43] <sheldor> LilSnoop4: this was raspbian specific. which distro are you using? heck which OS even
[13:43] <jelly1> Datalink: lol
[13:43] <cairne> sheldor: which did you use that had that built in from start? bodhi?
[13:44] <sheldor> cairne: sneezy

[13:45] <cairne> have you tried bohdi? i love the way enlightment looks but its super slow for me
[13:45] <sheldor> LilSnoop4: sounds reasonable
[13:45] * zabomber (~zabomber@gateway/tor-sasl/zabomber) Quit (Quit: leaving)
[13:45] <LilSnoop4> is that correct?
[13:46] <sheldor> cairne: havent heard of bohdi yet
[13:46] <Datalink> LilSnoop4, that's the media center oriented Rasbian, so good if you're looking for a settop style box
[13:46] <LilSnoop4> i am just getting the raspberry pi to install xbmc on it
[13:46] <sheldor> let me google it
[13:46] <jelly1> LilSnoop4: openelec
[13:46] <LilSnoop4> i just wanna use it for xbmc
[13:46] <Datalink> Rasbian XBMC or OpenElec are both XBMC oriented builds
[13:46] <jelly1> LilSnoop4: then install openelec..
[13:46] <sheldor> i got the stock raspbian and manually installed xbmc. and i didnt manage to get xbmc.bin below 50% cpu usage while idle yet. i tried everything the web had to offer
[13:47] <cairne> sheldor: http://www.bodhilinux.com/ i always manage to screw up the name
[13:47] <sheldor> it was at 100% constantly before
[13:47] <jelly1> sheldor: hmm looking at xbmc's gui?
[13:47] <sheldor> so i really recommend a dedicated good xbmc distro instead of doing your own thing
[13:47] <jelly1> i mean xbmc's cpu usage viewer?
[13:47] <sheldor> jelly1: no
[13:47] <sheldor> top
[13:47] <jelly1> ok
[13:47] <sheldor> jelly1: in the xbmc viewer i get 100% 24/7 lol
[13:47] <Datalink> the cool thing about the Pi is that it just takes an SD card to try a new OS.. I have 2 SD cards just for flashing new OSes on, then my main rasbian build
[13:47] <jelly1> yeah it's stupid :P
[13:47] <sheldor> it has too little dirty regions
[13:48] <cairne> lol yea mine is pegged at 100% using raspxmbc
[13:48] <sheldor> LilSnoop4: sorry i dont know which xbmc distros are good currently
[13:48] <sheldor> but i know raspbian comes with easy wifi setup
[13:48] * jelly1 didnt like raspxbmc
[13:48] <sheldor> so might give that iso a try
[13:48] * tubadaz (~quassel@pdpc/supporter/student/tubadaz) has joined #raspberrypi
[13:48] <LilSnoop4> so what is the preferred os openelec or raspbian_wheezy_20120816_xbmc and will the parts i order work on them both
[13:48] <cairne> jelly1: what didnt you like about raspxmbc
[13:48] <LilSnoop4> as far as sd card and wifi dongle
[13:48] <jelly1> cairne: openelec seems more stable
[13:48] <jelly1> and mature
[13:49] <Datalink> LilSnoop4, personal preference, and should so long as they're not too much power draw for the Pi

[13:51] <sheldor> LilSnoop4: also before you order a wifi stick check the chipset and google "<chipset> linux driver"
[13:51] <sheldor> for exapmle i got a cheap $10 chinese whatever with some very common and widely supported realtek chipset
[13:51] <sheldor> works perfectly
[13:51] <sheldor> RT5something
[13:52] <cairne> sheldor: if you do install it though do it straight through dd, everyother setup i used boot didnt work right

[13:52] <sheldor> thanks cairne
[13:52] <sheldor> k
[13:52] <sheldor> i need to order some sd cards
[13:52] <sheldor> to put stuff on them, like games for a console
[13:52] <cairne> i kept being lazy, was like ooh graphical installers. and then time after time i plug in my pi and just a green light
[13:53] <cairne> finally i was like screw it and broke out the terminal lol
[13:53] <Datalink> LilSnoop4, which wifi dongle are you going with?
[13:53] <sheldor> i got a tiny $10 wifi dongle that is hardly bigger than the usb plug itself
[13:53] <sheldor> and realtek is mostly a good bet on linux i understand
[13:54] <sheldor> but always google the specific chip
[13:54] <cairne> lol remember when wifi dongles were so huge they stood out like 4 inches from the comp
[13:54] <sheldor> the manufacturer is mostly irrelevant afaik
[13:54] <sheldor> only chipset matters
[13:54] * dero (~dero@192.100.124.156) has joined #raspberrypi
[13:54] * Datalink likes the adafruit one he has.
[13:54] <LilSnoop4> sheldor i seems to have a linux driver http://www.edimax.com/en/support_detail.php?pd_id=347&pl1_id=&pl2_id=
[13:55] <sheldor> LilSnoop4: good
[13:55] <LilSnoop4> this is it datalink: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005CLMJLU/ref=ox_sc_act_title_2?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER
[13:55] <Datalink> LilSnoop4, that one has pretty good support actually
[13:55] <cairne> when in doubt check adafruit and it is US based I believe
[13:55] <Datalink> yeah that'll work fine, any of the Linux distros you'll use for XBMC will support this
[13:56] <sheldor> cairne: yeah tech progress is pretty amazing
[13:56] <sheldor> i also still have a huge cisco usb dongle
[13:56] * dero (~dero@192.100.124.156) Quit (Client Quit)
[13:56] <Datalink> RISC OS (not a Linux distro) also supports it, I don't think I could get it workingn with my Plan 9 SD card...
[13:56] <sheldor> its the size of a flashlight
[13:56] <cairne> haha is it the one with the antenna?
[13:57] <sheldor> lol
[13:57] * dero (~dero@192.100.124.156) has joined #raspberrypi
[13:57] <sheldor> no but i got such one too
[13:57] <sheldor> i mean today wifi dongles come with extra casings just so you can actually plug them in and pull them out
[13:58] <sheldor> they would easily fit on the mere usb connector thing
[13:58] <sheldor> and soon they will be the size of a grain
[13:58] <cairne> i could never get myself to throw out anything cisco branded, i still have a few old 4 port switches
[13:58] <sheldor> and less than $1
[13:58] <sheldor> and they will be everywhere
[13:58] <sheldor> implanted in all things
[13:58] <sheldor> and then one day the entire world will be transparent
[13:58] <cairne> can't wait for the day when I can be my own wireless router
[13:58] <sheldor> 100%
[13:58] <sheldor> lol
[13:59] <cairne> MITM attacks would be so interesting then
[13:59] <sheldor> cairne: whats actually weird, the cisco usb dongle was the worst i ever had
[13:59] <LilSnoop4> anyone know the best/cheapest place to get the raspberry board
[13:59] <LilSnoop4> this is what i will be ordering now:
[13:59] <LilSnoop4> wifi dongle: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005CLMJLU/ref=ox_sc_act_title_2?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER

[13:59] <LilSnoop4> case: http://www.storenvy.com/products/404262-raspberry-pi-enclosure-kit
[13:59] <LilSnoop4> just need the board and power supply people said get the 2A one but need a link to the good one please, do all these parts look ok for either os install?
[13:59] <LilSnoop4> thanks
[13:59] <sheldor> large, bad signal strength, bad receptoin, got hot
[13:59] <sheldor> really weird
[13:59] <cairne> sheldor: wow really, i've always had good luck with them
[13:59] <sheldor> i deliberately paid an extra buck to get a quality dongle
[14:00] <sheldor> then turned out it was crap
[14:00] <sheldor> but yeah otherwise no problems with cisco
[14:01] <cairne> LilSnoop4: that is a nice case, the hardware looks good, no guarntees on anything though unless its been proven you'd have to do some reaserch on those verified units we gave you earlier. if it all checks out no problems
[14:02] <sheldor> good sd card, decent case
[14:02] <cairne> http://elinux.org/RPi_VerifiedPeripherals
[14:02] <sheldor> good wifi dongle
[14:02] <sheldor> good job LilSnoop4
[14:02] <LilSnoop4> i looked cairne
[14:02] <LilSnoop4> just wanted to make sure before i order
[14:02] <Datalink> LilSnoop4, you'll be fine, as for the pi itself, Farnel/Newark, RS and Allied Semiconductor, raspberrypi.org has links to them
[14:02] <cairne> oh yea then it will be good
[14:03] <sheldor> arent RS and farnel the only ones who sell the rpi anyway?
[14:03] <cairne> i got my pi from allied faster then farnel even though I ordered farnel first

[14:03] <Datalink> sheldor, there are resellers, my next pi'd be from SparkFun or Adafruit if they get morestock
[14:03] <sheldor> unless they got some mass contracts with RS or farnel
[14:04] <cairne> are they still having issues with making them?

[14:05] <cairne> Allied Electronics customer service was very good, and they have a location in washington so it was kinda a little jab at microsoft buying it there lol
[14:05] <sheldor> Datalink: but they all got theirs from rs / farnel right?
[14:06] <nid0> sheldor: yes
[14:06] <LilSnoop4> you have a link for that cairne
[14:06] <cairne> http://www.alliedelec.com/lp/120626raso/
[14:07] <Datalink> sheldor, yeah, but I prefer to get components together, my order from Adafruit was here in days, my pi took a week to ship
[14:07] <LilSnoop4> great thanks so besides those parts i listed above i just need the power plug now... do i need any cables or anything
[14:07] <cairne> hdmi or video cable to connect to tv
[14:08] <cairne> keyboard, mouse, unless you plan to just ssh into it
[14:08] <sheldor> yeah makes sense Datalink
[14:08] <LilSnoop4> have that ssh is good i think
[14:08] <LilSnoop4> so what kind of power plug you guys suggest please. sorry for all these questions. i appreciate the help
[14:08] <Datalink> sheldor, plus I'd rather work with a company that targets my kind of consumer, RS and Farnel both target engineers
[14:09] <cairne> LilSnoop4: I use my old atrix 4g charger and that works fine. I believe most android cell phone chargers with micro usb work
[14:09] <sheldor> same here
[14:09] <Datalink> LilSnoop4, genuine apple USB chargers are good, so long as they're the type with plugs, you can power a pi from USB connections on TVs or computers but I'd avoid peripherals when doing that, wifi is probably max possible, I use a Belkin 2 plug charger for mine though I think right now it's plugged into my dev laptop
[14:10] <sheldor> but get a powered usb hub from the known good list if you want to power more stuff like usb hdd
[14:10] <cairne> Datalink: you mean you don't want to buy a 1000 servo motors lol
[14:10] <Datalink> cairne, not right now, no

[14:12] <LilSnoop4> ok, so i didn't have any plans to plug in any hard drives at this time so just as long as i plug the wifi in the the raspberry i won't need a hub?
[14:12] <cairne> LilSnoop4: most places you can buy the pi from also sell chargers for it
[14:12] <sheldor> LilSnoop4: correct
[14:13] * Kottizen (martin@trekweb/supporter/kottizen) has left #raspberrypi
[14:13] <sheldor> cairne: but wouldnt that corrupt your filesystem eventually?
[14:13] <sheldor> just pulling the plug on linux
[14:13] <LilSnoop4> cairne so that one from allied is ok the plug
[14:14] <LilSnoop4> http://www.alliedelec.com/Search/ProductDetail.aspx?SKU=70232557
[14:14] <cairne> sheldor: from what I understood and from my experience my pi doesn't shut down via the command even if I do select it from lxde. in their guide they released it says to just unplug it :/
[14:15] <LilSnoop4> think i need one of these and im good right http://www.alliedelec.com/search/productdetail.aspx?SKU=70240887
[14:15] <cairne> LilSnoop4,
[14:15] <cairne> LilSnoop4: yes that will work
[14:15] <sheldor> cairne: oh, i always do sudo poweroff
[14:15] <sheldor> or sudo shutdown -h now
[14:15] <Datalink> cairne, that's because the pi does not have power control circuitry, you should shut off the OS but then you do have to remove power manually
[14:15] <sheldor> and it does quite some things until it powers off
[14:16] <cairne> sheldor: never thought of doing that. forgot about the shutdown command via cli
[14:16] <Datalink> I've powered my Pi from a TV before, though my attempt to have it turn off said TV as last stage of power cycle didn't work so well
[14:17] <cairne> Datalink: since its sold state though and instantly is saving stuff would the filesystem become currupted like it does with spinning disks?
[14:17] <gordonDrogon> cairne, do not make that mistake....
[14:18] <sheldor> cairne: it can buffer to ram afaik
[14:18] <gordonDrogon> just because they're not going round doesn't mean there isn't stuff in RAM that's not in the storage...
[14:18] <Datalink> cairne, if you cut power half way through a write, you miss half the data that was being written, just because it writes solid state doesn't mean it finishes the write magically without power
[14:18] <LilSnoop4> great thanks for you help guys greatly appreciate it. can't wait to get ordering those last parts now!
[14:19] <Datalink> LilSnoop4, enjoy your Pi, and I hope you're gonna explore it too :D
[14:19] <cairne> gordonDrogon: that is true. so then theoritically if its idle it wont hurt, but i'll remember to shutdown correctly
[14:19] <pksato> http://www.raspberrypiblog.com/2012/10/how-to-setup-remote-desktop-from.html
[14:19] <gordonDrogon> cairne, for some value of idle... there are always thing going on in the background - system logs being written, etc.

[14:19] <cairne> LilSnoop4: remember to have fun with it, and if this is your first run at linux then you will soon find yourself hating your windows box
[14:20] <Datalink> cairne, that really depends on the person
[14:20] <gordonDrogon> saying that, you should "get away" with it most of the time if the system is idle.
[14:20] <cairne> gordonDrogon: do you remember the comman to show you whats running via active invisible terminal?
[14:20] <Datalink> but getting away with it is not a good practice
[14:20] <gordonDrogon> I pull the plug on my Pi's from time to time and occasionally I have to power cycle a remote server, ...
[14:20] <Datalink> cairne, there's ps pgrep and top
[14:20] <gordonDrogon> ;s a
[14:21] <gordonDrogon> ps ax will show you most.

[14:21] <cairne> i remember reading there is like a terminal window always open behind x11 that there is a keyboard shortcut that brings it up
[14:21] <Datalink> LilSnoop4, try Allied or Element 14 (Farnel's US site)
[14:22] <gordonDrogon> cairne, oh, Shift+Alt+F1
[14:22] <gordonDrogon> or maybe Ctrl+Alt+F1
[14:22] <Datalink> cairne, ctrl+alt+F1 through ctrl+alt+f6 bring up ttys
[14:22] <Datalink> gordonDrogon, ctrl-alt, not shift
[14:22] <Datalink> some window managers you do need ctrl+alt+shift but not the one the Pi uses
[14:23] <LilSnoop4> damn they are out too
[14:23] <LilSnoop4> amazon has them but for $58
[14:23] <Datalink> LilSnoop4, try, RS components, then Adafruit and sparkfun

[14:26] <LilSnoop4> thx
[14:26] <cairne> thats what i did ><
[14:26] <gordonDrogon> once in text console, it's just alt+fX to switch consoles - 1-4 are normally enabled, 7 is usually X

[18:29] <megaproxy> the pic there is to scale
[18:29] <megaproxy> mostly :P
[18:29] <megaproxy> looks about 2/3cm
[18:29] <Torikun> wow
[18:29] <Torikun> you have that many megaproxy?
[18:29] <megaproxy> Torikun, this is why im interested in your cluster :P
[18:29] <megaproxy> not yet
[18:29] <Armand> Is the width accurate ? Looks like you've got a fair gap down the side.
[18:29] <megaproxy> i currently own about 6 pi's
[18:29] <Torikun> lol
[18:29] <Torikun> wow

[18:29] <Torikun> my third one comes in Friday
[18:29] <megaproxy> Armand, yea. The spacing is to be desired
[18:29] <Torikun> another node for drupal
[18:29] <Torikun> lol
[18:29] <megaproxy> i think i might mount them at a angle?
[18:30] <megaproxy> like instead of = = =
[18:30] <megaproxy> have em like \ \ \ \
[18:30] <Armand> It R mad planning...
[18:30] <Torikun> Your cluster looks cooler tham mine mounted on teh wall lol
[18:30] <megaproxy> Torikun, when the design is done, all plans etc are OS
[18:30] <megaproxy> is the plan

[18:30] <megaproxy> this *should* be datacenter ready too
[18:30] <Armand> I think angling them will reduce the overall capacity ?

[18:31] <Armand> We said about 60 Pi, right ?
[18:31] <Torikun> looks like your making a pi equivelant of a blade server megaproxy
[18:31] <megaproxy> p much :D
[18:31] <megaproxy> the power is going to be crazy
[18:32] <megaproxy> you get about 13 amps per rack
[18:32] <megaproxy> a rack has 45 u
[18:32] <megaproxy> one of these 2u cases will probs draw more than 13 amps
[18:32] <megaproxy> its in no way efficient :D
[18:32] <Armand> If we guess at 500mA draw, we could say about 40A draw for the whole unit (and a little wiggle room)
[18:33] <megaproxy> http://i.imgur.com/qgfSG.jpg
[18:33] <megaproxy> ^45u rack i set up
[18:33] <megaproxy> not full yet tho..

[18:33] <Torikun> lol
[18:33] <megaproxy> so they have their pi on a crazy fast network
[18:33] <megaproxy> with 2n+n power
[18:33] <megaproxy> :D
[18:33] <Torikun> nice
[18:33] <megaproxy> in a bomb proof building..

[19:21] <AndrevS> afo0l, does your GPU have enough RAM? I have experienced this behavious when the GPU didn't have enough RAM, as the XBMC GUI uses some GPU RAM as well.
[19:22] <enthusi> Hi
[19:22] <enthusi> is there an suggested amount of RAM for different codecs?
[19:23] <|Jeroen|> thay say 128 is eunogh
[19:23] <AndrevS> Anyhow, this would still be an interesting question, as running a custom command can be usefull since the hardware decoder cannot decode certain formats (say DIVX 3) and try to play them software based.
[19:24] <AndrevS> 128 MB should be enough. I think 100 will run fine as well.
[19:24] <enthusi> well the question is how little is enough :)
[19:24] * Armand has never seen a 100MB gfx card. :P
[19:24] <AndrevS> :P
[19:24] <|Jeroen|> do a trial and error, and let us know
[19:24] <AndrevS> That's shared memory :P :P
[19:24] <afo0l> AndrevS: i use 256
[19:25] <|Jeroen|> wel its not just a gfx card, its also a decoder
[19:25] <AndrevS> 256 is all the memory my pi has....

[19:25] <Armand> AndrevS, I know what you meant... I've seen a BIOS that allows you to set a specified amount, rather than 64,128, whatever.
[19:25] <seba-> can you encode with the chip?
[19:25] <seba-> video

[19:26] * XenGi_ is now known as XenGi
[19:28] <AndrevS> Besides, from what I've read, the libraries provided by Broadcom don't seem to follow the OpenMAX specifications, and so if some implementation exists, it will require Raspberry Pi/Broadcom specific patches. (At least, that's what a thread on the VLC forums is about)

[20:59] <Mortvert> fperkins - floppies degrade very fast. IIRC they don't retain data for more than a year.
[20:59] <gordonDrogon> I havr 30 year old 5.25" floppies that still work fine.

[21:01] <Mortvert> Can you emulate c64 on rpi?
[21:01] <FerkSwe> Because I have a program, which constantly monitors pin 16
[21:01] <FerkSwe> and I put a jumper on it, not connected to anything else
[21:01] <cent> wich one is the GPIO ?

[21:02] * Out`Of`Control (~Viper@unaffiliated/outofcontrol/x-1373891) has joined #raspberrypi
[21:02] <gordonDrogon> FerkSwe, the pin is not biased either way, so floats.
[21:02] <FerkSwe> What?
[21:02] <IT_Sean> you need to either pull it hi and watch for it to go low, or pull it low and watch for it to go high
[21:02] <gordonDrogon> FerkSwe, so when you touch it, or go near it your electircal field affects it. like a touch switch.
[21:02] <FerkSwe> Ah
[21:03] <FerkSwe> Is it safe to use it that way? (Actually perfect for my project)
[21:03] <Gadget-Mac> gordonDrogon: http://kolev.info/avrdude-linuxgpio
[21:03] <gordonDrogon> not really.
[21:03] <FerkSwe> Safe as in Won't ruin my pi.
[21:04] <gordonDrogon> Gadget-Mac, ah, so the patch has been ported to the latest version.
[21:04] <gordonDrogon> FerkSwe, who knows, but there is no cetianty about it working either.

[21:05] <cent> can anyone here confirm this ?
[21:05] <gordonDrogon> without an sd card the green light will do nothing.

[21:35] <TomWij> Nice thing about Gentoo (and probably Arch too) is that you can have it much more minimal than most of the other "packaged" distros, if you plan to go for something very specific and don't need most of what an OS provides it's very handy.

[21:40] * rikkib uses KDE on all his Linux I386 desktops
[21:40] <Torikun> I used to build on a devie slightly better than the pi, the zonbu mini. It was horrible!
[21:40] <sheldor> roaster: i was told you cannot really speed things up because the bottleneck in compilation is io
[21:40] <sheldor> and not cpu
[21:40] <TomWij> Torikun: Well, my host is a i7 with MAKEOPTS="-j32 -l8" with server throughput so cross-compiling kdelibs wouldn't be an issue; but yeah, the RPi won't handle it properly without major modifications I suppose...
[21:40] <sheldor> so you wont see significant speedups
[21:40] <Neqoxec> if you do a minimalistic setup, the only big package really is gcc ~16 hours
[21:40] <sheldor> but never tested it personally
[21:41] <Torikun> Nice machine TomWij
[21:41] <TomWij> Torikun: It's also pretty nice for distcc, the compile phase itself on the RPi is blazing fast that way.

[21:41] <Torikun> do you have to do special things to make your i7 support ARM?
[21:41] <TomWij> Torikun: 32 basically uses cgroups, it's 8 cores but you know... 8 jobs usually wait on I/O so gotta bump the number.
[21:42] <TomWij> Torikun: It doesn't run ARM, it can cross-compile for ARM.
[21:42] <Torikun> What has to be done to support ARM?
[21:42] <Torikun> just a simple config file change?
[21:42] <Torikun> or many packages
[21:42] <TomWij> Torikun: http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/cross-compiling-distcc.xml and http://www.gentoo.org/proj/en/base/embedded/cross-development.xml
[21:42] <Torikun> ty
[21:43] <roaster> sheldor, you definitely see a speed difference, and besides my virtualbox debian installation on my pc outperforms the rpi on cpu and i/o anyway
[21:43] <Torikun> I want to try Gentoo on my Macbook lol
[21:43] <TomWij> I think that it basically introduces a small ARM stage3 with host-architecture compiling tools (can run on host) and ARM libs.
[21:43] <Neqoxec> ran gentoo on my rpi for awhile, got tired of every single package being masked
[21:44] <sheldor> roaster: dont be so sure it outperforms on i/o. i mean high quality sd cards are regularly faster than hdd
[21:44] <Torikun> Neqoxec: I hate that!
[21:44] <Torikun> lol
[21:44] <sheldor> roaster: and as i said cpu is irrelevant
[21:44] <Torikun> That made me hate Gentoo back in teh day
[21:44] <sheldor> on the other hand when i compile stuff i always see my rpi at 100% cpu....
[21:44] <TomWij> Neqoxec: Pretty normal for an architecture that still needs some more love.

[21:45] <TomWij> sheldor: CPU is the bottleneck only if you don't off-load tasks with distcc to other computer(s) on your network.

[21:47] <TomWij> Torikun: I probably should set up my cross evironment in a better way and do everything from my host, so it only gets a metter of sending over a binary package to the RPi; but well, didn't bother as it compiles fine on the RPi. Maybe look into that when I do updates on the RPi.
[21:47] <roaster> but hey, setting up this cross compilation thingie was fun to do either way :D
[21:47] <TomWij> Now I just leave the first version of what I install on it. :D

[21:53] <sheldor> i got a $10 nano random chinese dongle with a realtek chip

[21:54] <TomWij> I'm running Intel WiFi Link 5100
[21:54] <roaster> but just found out that if you want remote debugging he's missing the option of enabling the build of gdb as well, so I'm building my compiler and gdb again now :D
[21:54] <TomWij> Not the best (some issues sometimes in the kernels) but does the job mostly.
[21:54] <rikkib> I asked a friend who is the senior project manager for the largest system integration company in NZ what he thought of Broadcom... Nothing but trouble was his reply.

[22:01] * rikkib is probably not a nice person in that regard... i get a bee in my bonnet and there it stays.
[22:01] <Amadiro> What I might have said, however, is that that there is a lower limit to when it pays off to cross-compile.
[22:01] <cent> netzvieh: I found an other sd and tested with it, no succes
[22:01] <sheldor> Amadiro: yes you did
[22:01] <sheldor> you said "cpu is not the bottleneck, io is"
[22:02] <dpea> btw: whats the sd speed on the 512 mb version pls?
[22:02] <Amadiro> sheldor, that depends on the language and compiler
[22:02] <Amadiro> sheldor, but note your false assumption that that means that using cross-compiling won't give you a speedup
[22:02] <sheldor> Amadiro: we were talking gcc on the rpi
[22:02] * rikkib was not impressed with the treatment I received at the hands of jamesh of the foundation forums and do not mind telling people about it despite the flack I get when I do.
[22:03] <sheldor> Amadiro: it was your conclusion
[22:03] <Amadiro> sheldor, most certainly not.
[22:03] <rikkib> Breakfast
[22:03] <Amadiro> sheldor, it depends on too many factors to make a general conclusion, like which language you are compiling (C and C++ have very different compilation characteristics) what type of SD-card you have (might make it the bottleneck or not), what compiler options you use (for instance -pipe or not)
[22:03] <sheldor> Amadiro: yes you said it would not significantly speedup compilation
[22:04] <netzvieh> cent: hmm, then it seems to be a hardware problem somewhere on the pi ... have you tried to manually replace the firmware?
[22:04] <cent> Hey what to do when your Rpi just stop booting and shows nothing but the red light, no matter wich sd card you use, and wich new system you install on it ?
[22:04] <netzvieh> like in the forum posts you linked?
[22:04] <sheldor> okay
[22:04] <netzvieh> though at least the arch should have the newest firmware
[22:04] <Amadiro> sheldor, for instance if you compile smallish C projects, it might not pay off, if you compile largeish C++ projects, it most certainly will

[22:05] <Perkele> how do i restart the sshd?
[22:05] <sheldor> Amadiro: why in a nutshell exactly is cpp more cpu intense to compile?

[22:06] <Amadiro> sheldor, c++ is much more CPU and memory-intensive because the compiler has to do significantly more work to expand templates et cetera

[22:26] <sheldor> like double it
[22:27] <sheldor> im currently creating a menu with dialog the pi boots into and it should be possible to navigate it with just a gamepad
[22:27] <b3hnam> Amadiro: what about xchat ? (run in graphical mod ?)

[22:28] <sheldor> is there a better way to write such a menu? maybe more fancy looking and with native gamepad support
[22:28] <Amadiro> b3hnam, what about it?
[22:28] <sheldor> with a gui
[22:28] <sheldor> would you recommend sdl for that?

[22:29] <sheldor> or /usr/share/whatever/lxde/autostart
[22:29] <sheldor> dont recall
[22:30] <Amadiro> sheldor, I was referring to the fancier menu. You can use SDL (which is a little buggy on the RPI, in my experience), OpenGL ES or so directly (see the hello_font examples in /opt/vc/hello_pi) -- or you can use some or other library that uses one of these
[22:30] <rikkib> s5fs, I was developing for the OSS community many years ago when you had no choice but to get involved to fix the buggy software... I also worked on early moxa drivers for Linux and a project call xmlbaster doing mysql stuff...
[22:30] <Amadiro> sheldor, doing it directly in opengl/sdl is a pretty big pain in the ass, since it doesn't handle a lot of the font-stuff for you -- you have to do wrapping and such yourself.
[22:30] <sheldor> thanks Amadiro
[22:30] <sheldor> are there no framebuffer menu solutions?
[22:30] <sheldor> i see Amadiro
[22:31] * user82 (~user82@unaffiliated/user82) Quit (Quit: Verlassend)
[22:31] <sheldor> Amadiro: alternatively increasing the font size in the console would make the simple dialog script more usable
[22:32] * xCP23x (~xCP23x@b0fe823c.bb.sky.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[22:32] <sheldor> the dialog script already works. probably can get the gamepad working with joy2key
[22:32] <Amadiro> sheldor, don't know how to do that. I tried it once by appending something to the kernel console (the font type to use), but that didn't have any effect. Didn't really try anything else
[22:32] <b3hnam> Amadiro: where is .xinitrc ?
[22:32] <Amadiro> I know OpenELECs raspi version does it, however
[22:32] <b3hnam> should I make it in home ?
[22:32] <sheldor> and i themed it in a nice red green rpi combination
[22:32] <Amadiro> they have a really huge terminal font -- so have a look at that if you can't figure it out otherwise

[22:33] <sheldor> okay let me ask in #openelec

[22:33] <sheldor> interesting Amadiro. you mean even in a dialog script?
[22:34] <Amadiro> sheldor, well, it'd probably make more sense to just use ncurses or so in a dialog script
[22:34] * XenGi is now known as XenGi_
[22:34] <Amadiro> b3hnam, you might have to give it a shebang like "#!/bin/bash" first. It should probably also be executable.
[22:34] <sheldor> Amadiro: by dialog script i mean the binary "dialog" used in conjunction with if then etc in a bash script

[22:35] <Amadiro> sheldor, I have not used dialog, but doing something like parsing evdev in a bash script is probably a major pain in the butt
[22:35] <Amadiro> sheldor, I don't know if it does.

[22:41] <Amadiro> (or possibly by giving it a dummy video driver)
[22:41] <Amadiro> then you can still do your console printing thing (with ncurses, if you want to)
[22:41] <sheldor> is initializing the screen hard?
[22:41] <Amadiro> no, but if you do, you won't see the console anymore
[22:42] <sheldor> oh i see

[23:19] <gaddy> Could someone please assist me? I've installed gentoo and have just booted it but I am not getting a command prompt
[23:19] <gaddy> the last thing I did was to edit /etc/shadow and change the root line to show root::10770:0:::::

[23:24] * Toothpick (~Toothpick@173.234.188.12) has joined #raspberrypi
[23:24] <gaddy> how do you do that without chrooting?#
[23:24] <rikkib> you can also do sudo passwd
[23:25] <rikkib> It set the root password when making the image... But I use Linux to dd the image and them mount it and make modifications
[23:26] <gaddy> that will just change the root password on my computer rather than the raspberry pi system...?
[23:26] <rikkib> ssh in and sudo passwd
[23:27] <gaddy> do I need to undo what ive done to shadow?
[23:27] <rikkib> That is if gentoo has sudousers for the user

[23:31] <earl2> thanks
[23:31] <earl2> for pointing it out
[23:31] <earl2> However, it could have just been an art piece for the wall : )
[23:31] <KiltedPi> You like me then? Softie?
[23:31] <Mortvert> I wonder, if i salvaged a 320x240 screen from a phone - would it be able to work under a raspi?
[23:31] <IT_Sean> probably not.
[23:32] <earl2> however in this case your assumption was correct, I will put sw on it

[23:33] <KiltedPi> I can guarantee you'll know someone who has one in the loft
[23:33] <IT_Sean> to answer your question... you MIGHT get one to work, but, i'm not sure if it would just work out of the box. You may need additional hardware
