[0:24] <[Ex0r]> hey, another quick question
[0:25] <[Ex0r]> can I format this 1tb external hdd in windows and have xbmc read it natively?
[0:25] * cipherwar (~cipherwar@ Quit (Ping timeout: 252 seconds)
[0:25] <shiftplusone> yes
[0:25] <[Ex0r]> or do I need to format it to a linux fs and ftp files to and from it ?
[0:25] <[Ex0r]> cause I want to be able to hook the hdd up to my win computer to add new files to it
[0:26] <xzr> ntfs is fine on linux nowadays
[0:27] <[Ex0r]> k
[0:28] <[Ex0r]> I lost my bookmark I had to the custom foldify case
[0:28] <booyaa> heck itll even ready hfs
[0:28] <rikkib> Maybe you will end up mixing and matching
[0:29] <rikkib> Mixed files systems on different partitions matched to the purpose
[0:30] <rikkib> In the end you have ultimate flexibility with Linux

[0:51] <AndrevS> linuxthefish, from my understanding, if you leave the overvolt on 0 you won't break warranty, however, it might become instable at higher speeds.
[0:51] <[Ex0r]> thats awesome, haha
[0:51] <[Ex0r]> looks like construction paper
[0:51] <linuxthefish> ok
[0:51] <shiftplusone> The warranty void condition is on the rpiconfig page on elinux.
[0:51] <linuxthefish> i can't put the clock speed past 900 Mhz without changing the overvolt anyway :)
[0:54] <[Ex0r]> i put mine up to 800
[0:54] <[Ex0r]> dont dare going any higher
[0:54] <linuxthefish> temp still seems stable
[0:54] <linuxthefish> 100% cpu usage and it's still around 48oC
[0:54] <shiftplusone> temp is the last thing you need to worry about
[0:55] * Mortvert (~Mortvert@reddit/operator/mortvert) Quit ()
[0:55] <linuxthefish> what should i worry about?
[0:55] <shiftplusone> stability, that's all.

[0:55] <shiftplusone> ...F
[0:55] <mark_vh> hi, i have been looking into 'reset high-speed USB device' in my kern.log
[0:56] <[Ex0r]> about 40oC to non-american people
[0:57] <mark_vh> it seems they only occur if i copy to a disk that is connected to certain ports on my 7-port hup (i.e. the secondary staggered(?) hub)
[0:57] <mark_vh> all disks are self-powered, and hub is self-powered
[0:57] <mark_vh> is there anything i can do in software to prevent this reset from happening?

[1:04] <sofyan> helloo guys does anyone tried open CV to do image processing?
[1:04] <nico_> I have a question
[1:04] <rubiconjosh> i have used opencv, but not on the pi
[1:05] <sofyan> i used it too but i need to know if it works well on the pi or not o.o
[1:05] * dj_pi (~asd@c-107-5-25-243.hsd1.mi.comcast.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:06] <rubiconjosh> i plan on streaming video from a web cam hooked to the pi using mjpg-streamer to my desktop with a cuda enabled opencv build to do the processing
[1:06] <nico_> I've conne cted my brand new raspberry pi wired with a power adapter to my router. Its transfering very few packets and wont connect to the internet
[1:06] <nico_> does this make sence?

[1:09] <rubiconjosh> I just got mjpg-streamer running, I do not have a webcam yet so I just verified it is working with the test images. If you have not installed it yet and you are not running arch you will have to compile it from a svn. The tarball on the main sourceforge website is out of date and does not work.
[1:09] <sofyan> rubiconjosh: can u give me some details about how u'll do that? o.o

[1:10] <sofyan> i did the mjpg streamer part
[1:10] <sofyan> but i need to know how to use it with open CV
[1:10] <sofyan> this will make the process faster right?
[1:12] <rubiconjosh> I have not figured out exactly how I am going to get the images, I have a Qt application I wrote that connects to the Pi over my network, I will either transfer the images into the Qt application and use the functions I want from the OpenCV library or I may use Qt to write something that retrieves them via http since mjpg-streamer is running a webserver. I really have not figured it out yet. Just be sure to have a we
[1:12] <rubiconjosh> bcam that outputs mjpg, your pi will use less than one percent cpu sending the images out since it does not have to do any processing.

[1:14] <sofyan> yah sure i know that and i tried it already

[1:17] * shurizzle (~shura@unaffiliated/shurizzle) Quit (Quit: bye.)

[1:57] <mark_vh> ok, so my 7 port hub s*cks, giving on 4 out of 7 ports:
[1:57] <mark_vh> Jan 26 02:46:18 raspberrypi kernel: [44370.284077] usb 1- reset high-speed USB device number 14 using dwc_otg
[1:58] <mark_vh> when copying to the disk using dd if=/dev/zero of=/media/disk/zero.out bs=1M count=100
[1:58] <mark_vh> seems to be a hub problem
[1:58] <mark_vh> XXOO
[1:58] <mark_vh> XXOP
[1:59] * BigShip (~BigShip@ has left #raspberrypi
[1:59] <dr_willis> ive heard of other people with hubs with a lot of ports.. have issues..
[1:59] <mark_vh> X gives the error, O is perfectly ok, and P is power
[1:59] <dr_willis> seems hubs with more then 4 ports can be problematic.
[1:59] * zyklon (~zyklon@122-57-187-237.jetstream.xtra.co.nz) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:59] <dr_willis> I wonder if it may be the hub power supply being underpowered for the 3 of ports.
[2:00] <mark_vh> 4 ports
[2:00] <mark_vh> the disk is self-powered though, and any disk connected to the ports marked X will get the resets, resulting in very slow transfer
[2:01] <mark_vh> *diskks are
[2:01] <dr_willis> how slow is slow?
[2:01] <factor> dr_willis, you can check your max power by doing lsusb - v |grep MaxPower
[2:01] <factor> add up all the power ratings
[2:01] <plugwash> Afaict while true 7 port hubs do exist a lot of 7 port hubs are actually two chained four port hubs
[2:01] <shiftplusone> Is it actually accurate?
[2:01] <plugwash> I wonder if this causes some of the problems
[2:01] <factor> that would be the max not the actual
[2:02] <mark_vh> it occurs even if i plug out all other disks, so with a single self-powered disk connected to port marked with X
[2:02] <dr_willis> i had 3 USB - self powered HDs on my Pi the other day.. had all sorts of issues.. unplugged them all.. powered up the pi and the 2 hubs.. then plugged in one hd.. waited a few min.. pluged in the second.. and so on..
[2:03] <mark_vh> dr_willis: 700 kB/s vs 3.3 MB/s on the working ports
[2:03] <dr_willis> they all worked.. but im not sure if it was me rearangeing the cables. or the waiting that worked
[2:03] <shiftplusone> factor, I mean how is that maximum determined, is it just trusting what the device says (probably a lie) or is it actually limited to that current?
[2:04] <factor> its hard coded info , like a label on the device.
[2:05] <factor> except its a digital version
[2:05] <shiftplusone> So... it's pretty much meaningless then =/
[2:05] <plugwash> It means about as much as the CE mark on a PSU bought direct from china on ebay
[2:05] <factor> well its a general reference as to what the max current it will use
[2:06] <mark_vh> in the case of the disks i used to test, maxPower is 2 mA
[2:06] * _nimbu_ (~nimbu@ Quit (Ping timeout: 248 seconds)
[2:08] <shiftplusone> plugwash, or as much as "battery life" estimates from device manufacturers =p
[2:08] <mark_vh> anyway, moral of the story: if there's still performance problems after all usb-related fixes...try different ports on your hub ;)
[2:08] <factor> Anyone here use the BCM2835 lib.

[3:05] <cndiv> shiftplusone I followed the instructions on the link you sent me, and the cp play.sh /usr/bin??? line produced the error "chmod: changes permissions of '/usr/bin/play.sh' : Operation not permitted
[3:05] <cndiv> am I missing something?
[3:06] <shiftplusone> maybe a sudo
[3:07] <cndiv> shiftplusone that actually was with sudo. otherwise it says cp: cannot create regular file???. Permission denied
[3:07] <cndiv> I like this script though maybe someone else has written a similar one
[3:07] <shiftplusone> not sure what's up with that
[3:08] <cndiv> I'll try it again, maybe I did something wrong...
[3:08] <shiftplusone> try 'su -' and the just cp the file without sudo and 'exit'
[3:08] <shiftplusone> ah wait nvrm, there's no root password set
[3:08] <shiftplusone> so sudo su -
[3:09] <shiftplusone> but I am not sure why that would work if plain sudo doesn't.
[3:09] <cndiv> I'll sudo to root and see if that makes a difference?
[3:09] <shiftplusone> so it probably won't =)
[3:09] <shiftplusone> Maybe someone who knows more than me will jump in.
[3:10] <cndiv> shiftplusone I figure this is a really common use of the pi
[3:10] <cndiv> I just found out about omxplayer and it made my day :-)
[3:10] <Triffid_Hunter> sudo su - works fine
[3:11] <cndiv> Triffid_Hunter, you mean the command works correctly when you do it from root?
[3:11] <Triffid_Hunter> cndiv: I mean sudo su - gives you a root shell without a root password set
[3:11] <shiftplusone> sudo su - works fine, I am just saying that the cp command might not work... but I have no idea why it fails in the first place.
[3:12] <dr_willis> sudo su - is a little redundant... sudo -s or sudo -i may be saner. ;-)
[3:13] <Triffid_Hunter> can't change permission usually means the file copied successfully but it can't give it the same permissions as the original for some reason.. in my experience generally because the underlying filesystem doesn't support them (eg FAT mounts)
[3:13] <shiftplusone> yeah, I was trying to recall the flag, but couldn't bother googling, heh
[3:13] <Triffid_Hunter> I sure hope your /usr/bin isn't on a fat filesystem though!
[3:14] <dr_willis> ;) vfat bin...
[3:14] <nico_> is the blue port on the Pi an audio jack?
[3:14] <dr_willis> theres a stero out yes.
[3:14] <dr_willis> next to the rca out
[3:15] <shiftplusone> yes, but it's not always blue
[3:15] <dr_willis> dudent think mine was blue
[3:15] <shiftplusone> it's purple when you're not looking
[3:15] <shiftplusone> (no, I think there's a difference between uk and china ones as well as the 256 and 512 models)
[3:16] <shiftplusone> The audio jack on my rpis is black for example

[3:40] <shiftplusone> Torikun, have you tried to check why it's not coming back by looking at what's happening over serial?
[3:40] <nico_> oh. I wrote a perl script that doesnt work
[3:40] <Torikun> no
[3:40] <nico_> it wasn't even perl
[3:40] <Torikun> lol

[3:41] <Torikun> shiftplusone: this pi is not overclocked
[3:42] <nico_> what are the cons of overclocking?
[3:42] <Torikun> filesystem corruption nico_
[3:42] <shiftplusone> I don't think overclocking would have been the issue
[3:42] <shiftplusone> nico_, and general stability if you do it wrong
[3:42] <nico_> Torikun: i can live with that
[3:42] <shiftplusone> I have been running at 1GHz without any issue

[4:00] <Torikun> so I should only use SD card for /boot I guess and nothing else lol
[4:01] <shiftplusone> Have you tried different SD cards? Since that happens and you also can't reboot properly every time, you should be able to get your pi replaced.

[7:06] <Viper-7> agree with the anti-java sentiments
[7:07] <Viper-7> every java developer i know doesnt actually even develop in java anymore
[7:07] <Viper-7> they use scala or such which translate and run on the same vm
[7:07] <Viper-7> even then
[7:07] <Viper-7> give me C, or give me death! :P
[7:07] <SubaruSVX> lol
[7:09] <Viper-7> (this coming from a guy whos held jobs in VB6 and coldfusion, and thinks spin is a nice language)
[7:09] <Viper-7> so grain of salt required ;)
[7:13] <SubaruSVX> VB
[7:13] <SubaruSVX> is best programing language
[7:13] <Viper-7> lol
[7:13] <SubaruSVX> only pros use it
[7:13] <Viper-7> instr() and mid()
[7:13] <Viper-7> heck ill take strtok() over those :P
[7:14] <Viper-7> dim x,y as integer -- x is declared as variant

[7:15] <SubaruSVX> PDA's
[7:15] <SubaruSVX> i remember those
[7:15] <Viper-7> we made a form app, but a single app couldnt have more than one form
[7:15] <SubaruSVX> palm pilots ftw
[7:15] <Viper-7> so you had to make the form like 4x the screen width, and 3x the screen height
[7:15] <Viper-7> and pan it around as the user changed tabs

[7:17] <Viper-7> TAFB: nice
[7:18] <TAFB> thx :)
[7:18] <Viper-7> sync seems good too
[7:18] <TAFB> was a pain in the butt getting the audio to work on both iPhone and Android!!! so picky about codec and bitrate :(
[7:18] <TAFB> I think the sync is 0.1 seconds off (I read that when muxing to RTSP stream it adds 0.1 sec delay), but I haven't compensated for it in ffmpeg yet
[7:19] <Viper-7> haha yeah
[7:19] <Viper-7> and yeah its not quite perfect
[7:19] <Viper-7> but close
[7:19] <Viper-7> better than most stuff on twitch lol
[7:19] <TAFB> I have a video file for testing a/v sync, I might run it on it later and get er dialed in :)
[7:19] <Viper-7> usb cam?
[7:19] <TAFB> $132 ip camera
[7:19] <Viper-7> ahh nice
[7:19] * Viper-7 wants pi cams already
[7:20] <TAFB> has audio in, but crappy audio encoder (8bit, 8000hz mono) :(
[7:20] <TAFB> do you think you can switch the Pi's analog audio OUT to audio IN? :)
[7:20] <Viper-7> no
[7:21] <TAFB> bummer. would probably be a bitch getting the a/v sync consistant doing it that way anyway ;)
[7:21] <Viper-7> PCM_DIN is exposed on the gpio header tho

[7:23] <TAFB> impossible to beat it for quality, streaming options, nice lens, etc.
[7:23] <Gorroth> success. dropbox is running on the raspberry pi
[7:23] <Gorroth> at least my app that uses the API is
[7:24] <TAFB> Gorroth: congrats! :)
[7:24] <SubaruSVX> i dont understand it
[7:24] <Gorroth> thanks :)
[7:24] <Viper-7> TAFB: had a look at the A13-OLinuXino ?
[7:25] <TAFB> Nope, i got my heart set on http://www.hardkernel.com/renewal_2011/products/prdt_info.php?g_code=G135341370451&tab_idx=1
[7:25] <Viper-7> heh
[7:26] <Viper-7> lack of GPIOs :<
[7:26] <Viper-7> again not a hacker device
[7:26] <Viper-7> just a shot at cheap single board computing
[7:26] <TAFB> for $15 you can get add on board with 28 gpio :)
[7:27] <SubaruSVX> http://sourceforge.net/projects/pwnpi/
[7:27] <SubaruSVX> that's pretty cool
[7:27] <TAFB> I will need GPIO because it will be powered by solar power, and will need GPIO to measure current draw, voltages, etc.

[11:27] <djibb> Hi all :) I want to try this cam : http://www.ptgreystore.com/products/95-firefly-mv-03-mp-mono-usb-20.aspx on raspberry. Donwloads page provides an "arm build". So I've untarred it, install it and launch it. So in fact, I a a library issue: can't fin shared object) When I recompile it (ther're sources), all works well but same error occured.
[11:28] <djibb> here is the cpp : http://paste.gnoulibre.org/249 and the make file : http://paste.gnoulibre.org/250 all compilation pass well, but I don't understand why it can't find libraries
[11:29] <mrmoney2012> morning all - has any work been done on the 3.5mm audio output thing, couple of months back i couldn't get good audio - was all snap crackle and pop - better now ?
[11:29] <mrmoney2012> otherwise i use USB sound card...
[11:30] <pronto> i was able to use it just fine
[11:30] <pronto> the 3.5 out
[11:30] <mjr> It's inherently not very good quality. "Snap crackle and pop" sounds worse than it is though, but perhaps you're exaggarating.
[11:31] <mjr> I'm not sure if it's been worked on (or indeed if it can be made any better in software anymore)
[11:31] <mrmoney2012> hmmm...
[11:31] * tinti (~tinti@pdpc/supporter/student/tinti) has joined #raspberrypi
[11:32] <mrmoney2012> ok i will try with an updated distro

[11:32] <mrmoney2012> will unlash and reboot and give a spin
[11:32] <aDro> djibb: Pi rcognise the cam?
[11:35] <mrmoney2012> seems a right faff using usb audio when the pi has it onboard
[11:35] <djibb> aDro : it's not a standard cam. It comes with it's own library and works well on my Linux PC. (with running its proper softs). When tring them (build for arm ) on Pi, I can't launch them -> library issue. Yes, the cam appear in dmesg
[11:36] <aDro> :(
[11:37] <aDro> So you can't get it to work at all, or you can't get the custom library to load?
[11:37] <djibb> this cam is magnifique...works without an extrernal power...w&B, very sensitive... grrr...
[11:37] <djibb> I can't get the custom library to load
[11:37] <djibb> So nothing works :)
[11:38] <aDro> :(
[11:38] <djibb> http://paste.gnoulibre.org/251
[11:38] <mjr> mrmoney2012, well, what the pi has onboard is a pwm generator which is being kludged to produce the analog audio. The main and recommended audio output is the HDMI, the analog is a fallback solution.
[11:38] * DarkKnightCZ (~lukas@ip-4-11.hlucinnet.cz) has joined #raspberrypi
[11:39] <mrmoney2012> oh...
[11:39] <mrmoney2012> this pi is headless so hdmi isn't an option
[11:39] <mrmoney2012> might go usb again - it works
[11:40] <mjr> usb is a good option
[11:42] <mrmoney2012> if 3.5mm is never going to give ok sound - whats the point?
[11:43] <aDro> 3.5 is decent sound.
[11:43] <aDro> I am trying a usb sound card now
[11:45] * cccyRegeaneWolfe is now known as cccy_RegeaneWolf
[11:45] <mjr> the point is to get legacy audio out of the device if necessary, and cheaply
[11:46] <mjr> the exact same point as for the composite output - that's also rather limited in quality
[11:46] <aDroPi> for youung programmers
[11:47] <double-you> I thought the 3.5mm audio was good, but I couldnt figure out how to change volume
[11:48] * cccy_RegeaneWolf is now known as cccyRegeaneWolfe
[11:49] <mjr> Indeed; now if this were a home theater solution, it would be just a waste to include a pwm audio output, but it isn't. The pwm audio is quite good enough for people to get their device to make sounds (quite usefully, even) even if they don't have a modern tv to plug it into.

[12:00] <linuxstb> Gordio: It didn't use hardware decoding, just hardware rendering (converting the decoded YUV frames to RGB and scaling to full-screen). But from what I remember, the author said it was good enough for a lot of the older formats.

[12:01] <Gordio> linuxstb, you use mplayer?
[12:02] <linuxstb> Not on the Pi, no.
[12:02] <Gordio> hardware rendering better then (I have) software rendering to fbdev ;)
[12:03] <linuxstb> You could look in the old MPEG-2 decoding thread in the Pi forums (Power Users forum I think).
[12:03] <linuxstb> http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=29&t=5641
[12:04] <linuxstb> Perhaps PM'ing the person who worked on mplayer could persuade him to release something, if he hasn't already. (my memory is vague)
[12:05] <Macer> wow... mpeg2
[12:05] <Macer> blast from the past
[12:05] <Macer> heh
[12:06] <linuxstb> Not if you want to watch digital TV, it's very much a current standard.
[12:06] <Macer> really?
[12:06] <Macer> digital tv doesn't use h264?
[12:06] <SubaruSVX> ^
[12:06] <linuxstb> Sometimes, but I would guess that MPEG-2 is more common worldwide.
[12:07] <Macer> i would disagree heh
[12:07] <Macer> i thought h264 was the digital tv standard
[12:07] <linuxstb> In Europe for example, most SD channels are MPEG-2, with HD being h264.
[12:07] <linuxstb> And I thought HD in the US meant MPEG-2?
[12:07] <Macer> hm
[12:08] <linuxstb> Countries which have switched to digital more recently have been able to use H264 for both SD and HD.
[12:09] <Macer> oh wow
[12:09] <Macer> i guess some places do use h262 for digital tv heh
[12:09] <Macer> how odd... i wonder why that would be the better option
[12:09] <Macer> easier to transcode?
[12:10] <linuxstb> It's simply because at the time digital TV was introduced, h264 didn't exist. So there are millions of TVs and set-top boxes in use which can only handle MPEG-2.

[12:48] <osfameron> well, I've transitioned away from mac to linux (but I'm currently on mac, as my thinkpad is in office)
[12:48] <tomw889> what distro are you trying to write to the card?
[12:48] <tomw889> i see
[12:48] <osfameron> I was writing the adafruit distro
[12:48] <tomw889> do mac's have DD?
[12:48] <osfameron> which is a modified raspbian
[12:48] <azk> yes
[12:49] <osfameron> yeah, pretty sure they do
[12:49] <tomw889> yes
[12:49] <osfameron> but this was on my thinkpad
[12:49] <osfameron> I was using image-writer, which is a gui wrapper around dd
[12:49] <azk> I'm dd'ing on a mac right now
[12:49] <osfameron> which meant that it was impossible to find out why it was taking so long
[12:49] <osfameron> it used loads of CPU for 4 hours till I killed it
[12:49] <tomw889> if you've got a mac you might be interested a blog post
[12:50] <tomw889> http://www.administeria.com/raspberry-pi-time-machine-server/
[12:50] <osfameron> I tried strace'ing it and sending it SIGUSR1, but because it wasn't attached to a console it didn't help at all
[12:50] <azk> that's not a bad idea at all
[12:50] <tomw889> i've found that if I forget to bs=4M it just wont boot.. just a reminder

[13:31] <gordonDrogon> There is a slim chance the workshow will still run but at my office rather than the place we were doing it - but the people orginising it have not gotten bac kto me - we needed 8 to make it work there, but I can cop with 3-4 in my place.
[13:31] <KittyPaws> I actually ordered from reseller
[13:31] <KittyPaws> but it came in the original packaging.
[13:31] <gordonDrogon> I was plesantly surprised with farnell though - ordered friday afternoon and I got them saturday morning.
[13:32] <KittyPaws> :D
[13:32] <gordonDrogon> KittyPaws, I'd expect that - they'll be buying from Farnell or RS anyway.
[13:32] <KittyPaws> gordonDrogon: That always happens here
[13:32] <KittyPaws> I'll order something...
[13:32] <KittyPaws> it'll come before I know it!
[13:32] <gordonDrogon> you in the UK then?
[13:32] <KittyPaws> Yes
[13:32] <gordonDrogon> I think it's something we've come to expect...
[13:33] <gordonDrogon> sound really terrible in some countires )-::
[13:33] <KittyPaws> :(
[13:33] <gordonDrogon> who did you buy from rather than direct from Farnell?
[13:34] <KittyPaws> I can't remember
[13:34] <djazz> i got my last pi within a day. there are many resellers in sweden.. cheap too
[13:34] <KittyPaws> I think it was Blue Lagoon Electronics

[13:36] <PredaGR> hello people, the move to the new firmware brought a new kernel but left behind the previous kernel modules, do they need to be kept or can I safely remove them?
[13:36] <gordonDrogon> buy 100+ from Farnell/e14 and the price goes down from 25.40 to 22.34 each..
[13:36] <KittyPaws> My CRT comes this afternoon.
[13:36] <KittyPaws> Daddy is working atm :(
[13:37] <djazz> is there a way to run mumble from CLI? i cant seem to find anything about it, only murmur
[13:37] <KittyPaws> gordonDrogon: YOu can buy hundreds of them for 22.34?!
[13:37] <gordonDrogon> so I could buy 100, sell them for the gound rate and make ?3 per Pi :)
[13:37] <KittyPaws> :o
[13:37] <gordonDrogon> KittyPaws, 22.34 each if I buy 100 at a time.
[13:37] <KittyPaws> ooooooh
[13:37] <gordonDrogon> plus VAT
[13:37] <KittyPaws> right that makes more sense
[13:38] <KittyPaws> I've planned on buying in bulk anyway.
[13:38] <gordonDrogon> So that's something a good online electronics retailler ought to be able to manage, then sell it as a bundle (to add value and profit) with SD card, keyboard, etc.

[13:40] <KittyPaws> gordonDrogon: I'm not talking about USB output.
[13:40] <KittyPaws> I am talking about the power input.
[13:41] <gordonDrogon> you just need to be lucky to get a good power supply.
[13:41] <KittyPaws> oh
[13:41] <gordonDrogon> or power it off a laptop/pc ...
[13:42] <KittyPaws> My friend wants to hook up a webcam to a raspi and put it in a weather balloon with a parachute and tie it to a thread
[13:42] <KittyPaws> He wants to do recordings in the air
[13:42] <aDro> Use the Go Pro
[13:42] <PredaGR> by the way, an observation from even good switching power supplies, most of them have variable switching frequency and the power conditions change constantly on the raspi especially if you have disks and wireless, a solution is to add some capacitors as extra, helps the response time of the switching frequency
[13:42] <gordonDrogon> there are better solutions - e.g. Go Pro cameras..
[13:43] <KittyPaws> What's that? :o
[13:43] <gordonDrogon> a commercial "robust" little camera with on-board storage.
[13:43] <gordonDrogon> they're very popular with outdoorsy stuff - e.g. kayakers, skydivers, climbers, etc.

[13:44] <KittyPaws> my step dad is getting pissed off and raging and shouting outside

[13:45] <KittyPaws> gordonDrogon: lol
[13:45] <KittyPaws> Whyy was she evil? :o
[13:45] <discorpia> KittyPaws: dust the roof with pepper
[13:45] <gordonDrogon> she just was. probably still is. an evil and horrible person.
[13:45] <KittyPaws> Me and my dad was laughing about my step dad
[13:45] <KittyPaws> the wheels snapped off the vacuum when it was dropped
[13:45] <gordonDrogon> probably not helpfull.
[13:45] <KittyPaws> so he took some wheels off a suitcase and nailed em onto the vacuum
[13:46] <gordonDrogon> inventive.
[13:46] <KittyPaws> my step dad and mum nearly fell out over the vacuum cleaner
[13:46] <KittyPaws> because he was taking his time putting these wheels onto it lol
[13:46] <KittyPaws> Might as well just buy a new one :/
[13:47] <KittyPaws> gordonDrogon: I'm not bothered
[13:47] <KittyPaws> it's up to him to not use a plastic sheet as a roof
[13:47] <KittyPaws> but there are animals in that shelter and he doesn't want them getting wet
[13:47] <KittyPaws> so he rages

[13:49] <pewpewlaser> anyone have any good tips on what kind of equipment to scavenge 26p ribbon cables from?
[13:49] <gordonDrogon> old PCs. floppy disk drives.
[13:49] <gordonDrogon> they're still too big, but can work OK.
[13:50] <KittyPaws> gordonDrogon: How do you even know what he wants it for?! :o
[13:51] <pewpewlaser> heh, i figure he figured it's for the gpio port, since i'm asking here
[13:51] <gordonDrogon> KittyPaws, this is a raspberry pi forum - so I guess he wants it for a raspberry pi.
[13:51] <pewpewlaser> and he figured right ;)
[13:51] <pewpewlaser> gordonDrogon: thank you, i didn't think about those actually, just thought about ide but they are huge (40p?)
[13:52] <KittyPaws> gordonDrogon: Duh
[13:52] <pewpewlaser> i'll see if i can dig up some floppy ones
[13:52] <KittyPaws> pewpewlaser: FDD cables are a couple pins wider
[13:52] <KittyPaws> make sure you don't have a case on your raspi

[13:53] <Armand> rule 34?
[13:53] <Armand> O.o
[13:53] <pewpewlaser> i've already cut a slot in my casing to fit the connector through
[13:54] <pewpewlaser> but it's not in the casing atm, i will try and see if the fdd fit without modifications
[13:54] <KittyPaws> You had to cut into your case so that you can access the GPIO header?!
[13:54] <KittyPaws> I already got access from my case.
[13:54] <KittyPaws> :/
[13:54] <KittyPaws> but again...
[13:54] <tinti_> KittyPaws: may I speak in private about llvmlinux? I dont want to flood the channel
[13:54] <pewpewlaser> is it possible to cut off one side and hotglue it on that side? (i wont remove the connector very often)
[13:55] <KittyPaws> I would have to do some cutting to fit a cable in there
[13:55] <KittyPaws> pewpewlaser: What?
[13:55] <KittyPaws> You could also cut part of your FDD cable off
[13:55] <KittyPaws> to make it a smaller cable
[13:55] <pewpewlaser> KittyPaws: to cut down the side of the fdd connector/ribbon to make it 26p wide
[13:55] <pewpewlaser> i know how the ribbon connectors work, that they have latches on each side so cutting one off will remove the support on one side, but maybe that's glueable
[13:55] <KittyPaws> tinti_: If it's a raspi distro just mention it here.
[13:56] <pewpewlaser> maybe i should just try instead of speculate ;D thanks for the input
[13:56] <KittyPaws> pewpewlaser: You don't need support when it comes to the GPIO header
[13:56] <KittyPaws> the GPIO header doesn't have anything that will hold the cable in it is just pins.
[13:57] <pewpewlaser> Yeah but the side of the connector is what clamps the top to the bottom of the connector, right? That's the part I meant I might need to glue after cutting, so the top doesn't come off
[13:58] <KittyPaws> pewpewlaser: The side of the connector is what holds the cable into the sockets on a computer mobo.
[13:58] <tinti_> KittyPaws: it is not. It is about testing a feature for a RPI kernel build using llvm. I am speaking in private with some people because I think is a bit off topic. If some one want to give a try please contact me. Since not many people has test it I dont want to flood :)

[14:40] <gordonDrogon> I do have a photo - I remember taking one. Let me see if I can find it.
[14:40] <KittyPaws> What you want to do is alter the BIOS code on the SD card (.elf files) so that you can use the SD card as a kick starter and boot your OS from a pendrive.
[14:41] <KittyPaws> Pendrives are a LOT faster than SD cards.
[14:41] <pronto> what's a pendirve?
[14:41] <KittyPaws> ...
[14:41] <KittyPaws> Flash drive?
[14:41] <pronto> oh, usb drives?
[14:41] <KittyPaws> Yes
[14:41] <lgeyer> KittyPaws: it acutally doesn't happen on raspia, where to pi happily runs at 1000/500/500/6, but as soon as i start openelec that card corrupted
[14:41] <KittyPaws> I thought the term "pendrive" was crystal clear.
[14:41] <KittyPaws> :/
[14:41] <pronto> lame, i was thinking acutal pen or something
[14:42] <KittyPaws> lgeyer: I know
[14:42] <pronto> first time i'v ever heard 'pendrive'
[14:42] <KittyPaws> it is a bug in OpenELEC
[14:42] <KittyPaws> It's an xbmc bug
[14:42] <KittyPaws> so it will affect both OpenELEC and Raspbmc
[14:42] <KittyPaws> lgeyer: The only work around is boot from USB drive
[14:42] <KittyPaws> but you will have to do some altering of the BIOS code.
[14:42] <KittyPaws> it's in .elf files on the SD card
[14:43] <KittyPaws> I can't help you tho.
[14:43] <lgeyer> KittyPaws: that's interesting. do you have further information on this? do you coincidentally know if this has been fixed in 2.99.2?
[14:43] <KittyPaws> It hasn't been fixed
[14:43] <KittyPaws> Best option is boot from USB drive
[14:43] <KittyPaws> but I can't help you either

[15:14] <shirish> Is there something like male to male or male to female kinda thing in HDMI ?
[15:14] <Dyskette> Generally, cables are male, sockets are female (at both ends)
[15:14] <gordonDrogon> 50C is fine. wory about temperature when it reached 75C.

[15:15] <equivoc> gordonDrogon: both cpu and gpu are @ 48 - 50 degrees right now
[15:15] <Dyskette> shirish: which is pretty much a standard hdmi cable ;)
[15:15] <equivoc> and gone it is again :-(
[15:15] * shirish has no idea about HDMI cables, honestly.
[15:16] <shirish> Dyskette: any particular brands which are good you can share ?
[15:16] <gordonDrogon> equivoc, that's fine. nothing at all to be concerend about.
[15:16] <Dyskette> shirish: fair enough - I just think you'd have a hard time finding a cable that isn't male/male :P
[15:16] <equivoc> gordonDrogon: do you know what else might be a problem?
[15:16] <equivoc> or what else I could check?
[15:16] <Dyskette> shirish: I have no idea on brands or anything, I'm afraid - I don't actually use hdmi myself (old crt telly, y'see)
[15:16] <shirish> Dyskette: I actually was finding the male/female ones more so was confused .
[15:17] <Dyskette> shirish: huh. Well, fair enough
[15:17] <shirish> Dyskette: ah cool. I'm actually doing this in a school , where they have CRT as well.
[15:17] <shirish> Dyskette: am confused about the /boot/config.txt - overscan bit. Can you explain that a little better.
[15:18] <gordonDrogon> equivoc, not sure - I did read something about some new Pi's having a problem where they turn off after 10 minutes though, but I don't recall the details.

[18:25] <frojnd> nid0: why not?
[18:25] <Kisume> mod_python removes the need for fastcgi
[18:25] <nid0> because you cant. memory assigned to the gpu is dedicated to the gpu
[18:26] <frojnd> nid0: in 256MB version I could, what changed?
[18:26] <nid0> frojnd: what exactly are you trying to do, no version of the pi has ever supported the ability to share gpu memory, ram thats assigned to the gpu is totally unavailable to the cpu
[18:28] <frojnd> nid0: by default gpu_mem gets 256 MB right?
[18:29] * Kisume is away: Dinner.
[18:29] <nid0> doubt it, its probably 128 even on the 512mb pi
[18:29] <|Jeroen|> no by default it gets 16
[18:29] <|Jeroen|> that i whuout the config file
[18:30] <frojnd> so in previous version of rpi I had model B with total of 256MB of RAM. when I added gpu_mem=16 in /boot/config.txt when I did free -h I saw ~356MB ...
[18:30] <nid0> no you didnt
[18:30] <frojnd> then I must be blind
[18:30] <|Jeroen|> yes
[18:30] <nid0> the total you have is 256/512, and then what free shows is that figure less whatever's set for gpu memory
[18:31] <nid0> so a 256 with 16mb for gpu would show just under 240 in free

[19:52] <djazz> ha, managed to set up an RCA to livestream on my pi in less than an hour from flashing the sd card (arch) :)
[19:52] <djazz> using darkice and icecast
[19:53] <innaway> hey folks, qq. I'm just starting with the pi, working to replace a beaglebone in an embedded application. The goal is to get things configured then be able to dump the system image so I can stand up identical rpi's quickly. I had a bad time with this on the BB, and am a fairly lousy dd user :P
[19:53] <djazz> anyone know why the input volume is so low? how can i increase it?
[19:54] <innaway> so, question: am I helping myself out at all by not expanding the filesystem to fill the SD card in the rpi config? I probably only need a dozen megs (tops) for the python libs and scripts I'll be installing
[19:55] <innaway> (what I want to avoid is dumping an image of the full 4GB SD card, then finding that additional *allegedly* 4GB cards aren't big enough for the image)
[19:55] <linuxthefish> djazz: alsamixer
[19:55] <SpeedEvil> expand to 3.5
[19:55] <KittyPaws> :o
[19:55] <SpeedEvil> making it too small will wear only the occupied portion of the card

[20:19] <TAFB> I have a mega account, but it's so friggen flaky right now, haven't successfully uploaded ANYTHING!
[20:19] <Torikun> oh wow
[20:20] <Torikun> I can;t think of a reason to use it over dropbox and gdrive

[20:20] <TAFB> Can other people (police) see my ish on gdrive?
[20:20] <Torikun> Dunno
[20:21] <Torikun> Mega needs a desktop client for all OS and then I will say OK
[20:21] <TAFB> I'm still not sure how private Mega is either, like if they would hand over your encryption key at the drop of a hat :(
[20:21] <Hodapp> TAFB: If you're concerned, then encrypt.

[20:22] <Torikun> I do not use any encryption at home
[20:22] <TAFB> Hodapp: I've never worked with encryption before. I like encryption with Mega because it encrypts as I upload. Can gdrive do that?
[20:22] <Hodapp> I doubt it.
[20:22] <Torikun> Probably not
[20:22] <xzr> gdrive has no encryption
[20:23] <Torikun> does dropbox?
[20:23] <xzr> and the encryption scheme mega has is a bit dodgy
[20:23] <xzr> nope
[20:23] <TAFB> xzr: If I encrypt a folder on Mega, then want to work live, with files in it, I have to enter my encryption key. You just mean Mega probably doesn't store it?
[20:23] <Torikun> Mega does not have a non-web based way to upload right?
[20:23] <TAFB> Torikun: known to me
[20:23] <xzr> TAFB: well they "shouldnt"
[20:23] <xzr> :p
[20:23] <TAFB> Torikun: unknown to me
[20:23] <Torikun> oh
[20:24] <TAFB> xzr: after reading their TOS it's not clear if they do, or they don't ;)
[20:24] <xzr> mega's big idea was that you dont need a client
[20:24] <xzr> so it's browser only now
[20:24] <Torikun> well I like running dropbox cli on my linu servers
[20:24] <Torikun> lol
[20:24] <xzr> TAFB: yea I'm not touching it before they soothe out all the kinks
[20:24] <Torikun> I do not want to rely on a browser for my files, annoying
[20:24] <TAFB> xzr: I've waisted a ton of bandwidth trying to get stuff uploaded without success, so I give up for now.
[20:25] <xzr> well it's not like some 3rd party desktop software for transfering files is necessarily more secure than firefox for example
[20:25] <Torikun> convenience!
[20:25] <Torikun> lol
[20:25] <Torikun> I wish I could et owncloud installed
[20:26] * KittyPaws goes running to Ramsbottom
[20:26] <linuxthefish> it might be wise not to use mega for a while until it's stabilised, and everyone is sure it's secure///
[20:26] <linuxthefish> ... *
[20:27] <xzr> and like
[20:27] <xzr> if I have some data that I want to encrypt
[20:27] <Torikun> gpg
[20:27] <Torikun> lol
[20:27] <xzr> surely I'm not going to store it in some cloud storage service

[20:28] <Torikun> say if you use owncloud, how could you encrpyt the traffic?
[20:28] <Torikun> https?
[20:28] <xzr> no idea what owncloud is
[20:29] <Torikun> owncloud is your own hosted version of dropbox
[20:29] <xzr> but usually you'll use https
[20:29] <Torikun> Yeah it uses https by default

[20:29] <shiftplusone> Meh, a truecrypt flashdrive is good enough for me.
[20:30] <Torikun> truecrypt had some controversey recently
[20:30] <shiftplusone> I remember licensing contreversey, but not security conroversey... what kind is it now?
[20:30] <viric> didi t? :)
[20:30] <Torikun> I think it was license adn that the FBI could crack it

[20:31] <Torikun> not sure
[20:31] <Torikun> I would like to get it working on my pi with owncloud
[20:35] <BCMM> linuxthefish: saw a cryptoanalysis of it recently; they reckoned it was not very well thought through/rushed to release
[20:35] <BCMM> specifically, they have measures intended to make sure you don't have to trust their CDN, which is neat, but those measure are broken
[20:36] <Torikun> what are you talking about BCMM
[20:36] <shiftplusone> Mega, I think
[20:36] <Torikun> oh
[20:37] <BCMM> Torikun: if somebody highlights somebody else, it'll make more sense if you scroll up to the last line by "somebody else"
[20:37] <BCMM> http://fail0verflow.com/blog/2013/megafail.html the analysis i mentioned

[20:38] <linuxthefish> yeah, that's what i mean :/
[20:38] <BCMM> tl;dr they save resources by having an unencrypted CDN serve parts of their pages, but use a client-side hashing system to protect against interference or MITM with CDN nodes
[20:39] <BCMM> but the hashing system doesn't work properly
[20:39] <linuxthefish> i still just use ftp and my own webserver, fast and always up!
[20:39] <BCMM> why not sftp?
[20:39] <linuxthefish> good idea
[20:39] <BCMM> more secure AND easier setup
[20:39] <linuxthefish> k, done :p

[23:05] <piney0> alexhairyman, yes, the gpio will output 3.3 volts
[23:06] <alexhairyman> okay, let me modify the schematic to make sure I didn't screw something up
[23:07] <piney0> alexhairyman, what is your end goal to accomplish?
[23:07] <piney0> if you just want to power a single led, it doesn't have to be thet complicated is why im asking
[23:07] <alexhairyman> I'm trying to make an arcade table,

[23:10] <alexhairyman> I stick to the TTY/ssh for everything
[23:10] <darlekc> ive been having issues trying to run xfce4
[23:11] <darlekc> might just be due to the RAM capability, but can't tell
[23:11] <alexhairyman> update your firmware and give gpu_mem maybe
[23:11] <pksato> alexhairyman: and, R2 have very high value. Or Q1 is a darligton transistor?

[23:21] <SpeedEvil> transistors have a little man, a voltage meter, and a wheel. if the meter reads higher, the little man turns the wheel more to the right, lowering the resistance
[23:21] <shirish> does anybody how to get the progress-bar while using dcfldd ?
[23:22] <SpeedEvil> some modern transistors have women in.
[23:22] <shirish> does anybody how to modify this command dcfldd bs=4M if=2012-12-16-wheezy-raspbian.img of=/dev/3035-6363/
[23:22] <shirish> so that I can get that progress bar ?

[23:22] <TAFB> you have to open another terminal, and send a kill command to DD to get it to spit out progress

[23:24] <alexhairyman> pv <image file> | dd of=/dev/sda bs=1M
[23:24] <TAFB> Open new shell terminal.
[23:24] <TAFB> Run pgrep -l '^dd$'
[23:24] <TAFB> Find out process number then run: watch -n5 sudo kill -USR1 8789
[23:24] <alexhairyman> shirish it's like cat, but it prints a progress bar to stderr
[23:24] <TAFB> will cause original terminal to spit out progress every 5 seconds
[23:24] <alexhairyman> outputs file to stdout for dd
[23:26] <shirish> alexhairyman: which package has the pv command ?

[23:49] <shirish> alexhairyman: it's working but I haven't unmounted /dev/sdb1, is that ok ?
[23:50] <alexhairyman> are you writing to /dev/sdb ?
[23:50] * BlueDreams (~matt@mf52736d0.tmodns.net) Quit (Quit: BlueDreams)
[23:50] <alexhairyman> if you write to /dev/sdb any and all partitions on sdb should be unmounter
[23:50] <shirish> alexhairyman: this is the command pv 2012-12-16-wheezy-raspbian.img | dd of=/dev/sdb1 bs=1M
[23:51] <shirish> alexhairyman: dunno if it's doing the right thing or not.
[23:51] <alexhairyman> it's ok, you're very close! instead of sdb1 just do sdb
[23:51] <shirish> alexhairyman: df -h doesn't show any /dev/sdb
[23:51] <alexhairyman> shirish sdb is the device, sdb{1,2,3} and so forth are the actual partitions
[23:52] * BCMM (~BCMM@unaffiliated/bcmm) Quit (Quit: Konversation terminated!)
[23:52] <alexhairyman> so to flash the wheezy image to the SD card, you need to do sdb
[23:52] * plugwash (~plugwash@2001:5c0:1400:a::3df) has left #raspberrypi
[23:52] <alexhairyman> because the image contains a partition table/mbr
[23:53] <alexhairyman> does that make sense?
[23:53] <alexhairyman> it won't show up in df
[23:53] <alexhairyman> if you have lsblk installed it can show you what I mean
[23:53] <Naphatul> so i've read several places that there's some crackling with audio playback and analog output, how true is this?
[23:53] <shirish> alexhairyman: I killed it, took out the SD card and put it back in, nothing shows up :(
[23:53] <shiftplusone> very
[23:54] <Naphatul> shiftplusone: was that directed at me?
[23:54] <shiftplusone> yes
[23:54] <alexhairyman> shirish, rerun the command exactly like this sudo bash -c "pv 2012-12-16-wheezy-raspbian.img | dd of=/dev/sdb bs=1M"
[23:54] <alexhairyman> if you're already root leave out the sude
[23:54] <shiftplusone> Naphatul, if you want high quality audio you have to use hdmi
[23:55] <Naphatul> shiftplusone: i wanted to plug my stereo in it and set up a web interface for playback
[23:55] <Naphatul> is it a design flaw? any fixes for it?
[23:56] <pronto> http://tasty.bagels.xxx/ woah, it's all focused now , neat
[23:56] <shiftplusone> Naphatul, not a design flaw. It was designed to be a low cost device for eduation. High quality audio is expensive, so it was designed to be as good as possible without adding much cost... so it's exactly as designed in that sense.
[23:56] * linuxthefish` is now known as linuxthefish
[23:56] <shirish> alexhairyman: for some reason it seems to be stuck on 353 MB and not moving further.
[23:57] <shirish> alexhairyman: I am using your bash -c "pv 2012-12-16-wheezy-raspbian.img | dd of=/dev/sdb bs=1M" command.
[23:57] <alexhairyman> hmmm.... check the md5
[23:57] <Naphatul> well i wouldn't consider crackling normal quality let alone high
[23:57] <alexhairyman> md5sum <file>
[23:57] <alexhairyman> shirish and there shoulr be one you can compare against on the site
[23:57] <shiftplusone> Naphatul, I didn't say anything that would suggest otherwise.
[23:58] <Naphatul> so, uhh how noticeable is it?
[23:59] <shirish> alexhairyman: doing it. Btw it started to move again but now it's slow.
[23:59] <shiftplusone> Naphatul, enough that you should reconsider using it for the purpose I would say. You can reduce it by using crossfade, but it is something you'll be able to hear once in a while.
