[0:01] * darknite (~darknite@dirtylogic.org) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:02] <chaz68> Yeah. I posted it above b4 interrupted.... http://pastebin.com/ZDQkvVfb
[0:02] <hybr1d8> that would be handy
[0:03] <hybr1d8> what I can see suggests that the disk went offline (ie: usb connection lost)
[0:03] <chaz68> It copies a bit then stops...
[0:03] <chaz68> Should I try ext2 / ext3 / NTFS?
[0:03] <chaz68> I have another pi running this same setup reliably but it uses a 1TB hard drive with different enclosure.
[0:04] <hybr1d8> don't think it would help - the error is with accessing the underlying device
[0:04] <darknite> i'm trying to use an arduino board without mcu as and usb/ttl converter to access the serial console via gpio. (i don't have any hdmi device to access the screen)
[0:04] <chaz68> I have a few different usb - sata adapters I can try as well.
[0:04] <darknite> i'm having trouble initializing a session using screen /dev/ttyxxx 115200 with the following setup
[0:04] <hybr1d8> try connecting via a powered USB hub - it would not surprise me if the communications to the drive are getting messed up due to a pwer drop
[0:04] <chaz68> Don't know if I'd be wasting my time.
[0:04] <darknite> http://i.imgur.com/Ic55EQ3.png
[0:05] <chaz68> I have a Rosewill 7 port hub but it is not on the compatbility list...
[0:05] <hybr1d8> pretty much any powered hub should be helpful
[0:05] <TAFB> everyone got the superbowl on their tv :)
[0:05] <chaz68> Actually have a couple of those Rosewill units. Too bad not on compatibility list.
[0:05] * loadbang (~loadbang@host86-162-196-125.range86-162.btcentralplus.com) Quit (Quit: loadbang)
[0:05] <hybr1d8> I know the pi can work fine with 2TB disks (have done so myself)
[0:06] <darknite> it's not working, i'm not receiving any response, so does anyone have any suggestion for what could be wrong?
[0:06] <chaz68> So you think that may work with the powered hub even though it may not be on the compatibility list...
[0:06] <hybr1d8> worth a try ;)
[0:06] <Torikun> http://mbsy.co/lootcrate/99621 Check out Loot Crate! Good goodies for Geeks!
[0:06] <chaz68> Just don't want to waste my time on it if I'm barking up the wrong tree.
[0:06] <hybr1d8> darknite: Are you sure the arduino is setup for 115200 comms?
[0:07] <hybr1d8> also - make sure the device is correct and you have permissions (/dev/ttyAMA0)
[0:08] * Mr_P (~gerhard@chello080108255018.3.14.vie.surfer.at) Quit (Ping timeout: 264 seconds)
[0:08] <TAFB> Torikun: you watchin the superbowl?
[0:08] <Torikun> hell no lol
[0:08] <Torikun> you?
[0:08] <TAFB> lol. Yeah, I'm forced to, streaming it to a few friends :) http://rogerslive.click2stream.com :)
[0:08] <hybr1d8> chaz68: Both the OS and PI can work with 2TB drives - so problem must be in drive itself or communications with that driver
[0:08] <Torikun> lol nice
[0:08] <chaz68> I think I have one of these... http://elinux.org/RPi_VerifiedPeripherals#USB_to_SATA
[0:09] * mpmc is now known as mpmc|Away
[0:09] <darknite> hybr1d8: hmm, i didn't think i had to set up a specific speed in the arduino when just using it as a serial adapter, it should support 115200 since it supports it in programming i figured
[0:09] <chaz68> I guess I'll try that and the USB powered hub unit...
[0:09] <hybr1d8> When opening the serial connection from the arduino side you specify a speed
[0:09] <hybr1d8> ie "Serial.begin(115200)"
[0:10] <chaz68> Ubuntu laptop shows drive fine. I assume it's OK Drive. Passes SMART...
[0:10] <chaz68> Seems to work fine on other systems...
[0:10] <darknite> hybr1d8: there is no chip in the arduino, just using it as pure usb/ttl serial, connecting directly to the usb chip (the mega16u2)
[0:11] <darknite> the permissions looked right as well
[0:11] <hybr1d8> what is at the other end of the serial connection then?
[0:11] <hybr1d8> ie: what is actually listening for the serial connection?
[0:11] <darknite> oh, maybe i didn't specify. the arduino is connected to a laptop usb, so it's a bridge to serial laptop<>arduino<>rpi
[0:12] <hybr1d8> so is the laptop listening for serial at that speed?
[0:12] * egrouse (~newb@unaffiliated/egrouse) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[0:12] <darknite> yeah, i use screen /dev/ttyxxx 115200
[0:13] <darknite> tried both with cs8 and cs7 as well (stop bits)
[0:13] * Hopsy (~Hopsy@unaffiliated/hopsy) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:13] <hybr1d8> on both pi and laptop?
[0:13] <mgottschlag> darknite: you could try capturing some signal using normal gpio functions to see whether the signal from the arduino is correct
[0:13] <hybr1d8> the wiring looks like it should work (not ideal since no proper level converted - but good enough)
[0:13] <Hopsy> how do I do a reconnect when my wifi lost connection without reboot?
[0:14] * [SkG] (~sconde@unaffiliated/skg/x-897332) Quit (Quit: Saliendo)
[0:14] * felipealmeida (~user@mvx-187-16-79-187.mundivox.com) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[0:15] <darknite> mgottschlag: i'll double check my setup and then try to use one of the pins as a logic analyzer, thanks for the tip
[0:15] <darknite> hybr1d8: thanks for the look, then i know i'm working from sound principles. i might have made a mistake somewhere because i'm tired so i'll look it over one more time
[0:16] * Gordio (~Gordio@ has joined #raspberrypi
[0:16] <hybr1d8> Maybe try putting the chip back in the arduino board and confirming that comms work to there
[0:16] <chaz68> http://elinux.org/RPi_VerifiedPeripherals#USB_to_SATA
[0:16] <hybr1d8> you can always put a jumper from GND to RST on the arduino to force it to work in tri-state mode when you want to use it as a usb->TTL convertor
[0:17] <darknite> hybr1d8: :D what's tristate mode?
[0:17] <chaz68> Sorry didnt' mean to copy that again... hybr1d8 - thanks for the advice.
[0:17] <darknite> as in high impedance?
[0:17] <chaz68> Givin' it a shot right now...
[0:18] <hybr1d8> basically the chip is in a constant reset and so it doesn't get in the way of the USB->TTL
[0:18] <hybr1d8> (saves having to physically pull the chip out ;) )
[0:18] <darknite> hybr1d8: just googled, maybe that's what i'm doing wrong, i will try that right away. thanks

[0:54] <KiltedPi^> USB? heh
[0:54] <KiltedPi^> On the bottom of your Pi-
[0:54] <KiltedPi^> There is an SD card reader
[0:54] <KiltedPi^> :)
[0:55] <KiltedPi^> Put it in there. no?
[0:55] <ngc0202> *facepalm*
[0:55] <KiltedPi^> Otherwise, you will need drivers for the USB

[2:46] <LilSnoop4> hello, can someone answer a question for me please. i have bought the raspberry pi board, a wifi dongle, sd card and power supply. everything runs great except no matter what addon i try to watch a movie/tv show from it buffers after only 1-5 constent. i have tried a few different images from raspbmc and openelec and same issue. i have a cable internet 50 download and 6 upload so i don't
[2:46] <LilSnoop4> think that's it. the same addon's on my apple tv play with no issue. please help. thanks
[2:49] <PhotoJim> LilSnoop4: could be as simple as the WiFi dongle for your Pi isn't as sensitive as the one on your AppleTV so you're not getting as consistent a stream. The best way to rule this out is to hook up the Pi using a wired connection (which is more reliable anyway).
[2:50] * brp (~ben@108-196-154-73.lightspeed.austtx.sbcglobal.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[2:51] <LilSnoop4> jim i tried that as well and same issue
[2:54] <PhotoJim> could be your Pi just doesn't have the horsepower to pull the content off the network and simultaneously play it without hiccups.
[2:54] <PhotoJim> Try throwing it on a USB flash drive or some such, and see if it can play it off that without pauses.
[2:54] <PhotoJim> if it is, then you know it's CPU limitations or network limitations.
[2:56] <LilSnoop4> Jim are you saying put the image on the usb flash or the movie i am trying to watch. the movies or shows i am trying to watch r coming from the addon's like 1channel, icefilms and navi-x.
[2:57] <PhotoJim> LilSnoop4: I thought you were streaming them from a server or NAS, prehaps.
[2:57] <LilSnoop4> no streaming using the addon's
[2:57] <PhotoJim> I'm afraid I don't have any experience in streaming on my Pi yet, so I have to defer to those here with more experience.
[2:57] <PhotoJim> the addons are confirmed to work at adequate speed on the Pi for other people?
[2:58] <LilSnoop4> ok, well thanks for your help appreciate it.
[2:58] <PhotoJim> no problem... hope you figure it out
[2:58] <LilSnoop4> ... me too

[6:03] <xiambax> People break that little shinny thing off to the left
[6:03] <xiambax> it can be soldered back on but its a known issue
[6:04] <xiambax> I think rpi or their distributors should package the unit in a box that folds into a case.
[6:04] <xiambax> that has cutouts
[6:04] <ldionmarcil> but think about the current distributers! they would run out of business :-(
[6:04] <xiambax> naw, not everyone wants a cardboard case
[6:04] <xiambax> I think i may go hunting for old books and cut one apart.
[6:05] <xiambax> like a leather bound book. i could probably fit three or four of them in there

[11:35] <dape8708> syslogd? why?
[11:36] <gordonDrogon> unless it's doing something critical, or public facing, is there really a need to log various random stuff?
[11:36] <gordonDrogon> note that I do have servers, etc. that do log stuff, but for stuff rattling round a private LAN, I often don't bother.
[11:37] <gordonDrogon> I do prefer the older sysklogd to the new rsyslog though. Just make sure you '-' the filenames in the config file to stop the fsync on every write - that's a performance killer on something like the Pi if it starts logging frequently.

[12:16] <Joeboy> No issues with my 1
[12:16] <ryanteck> I would have been very confused if it was a "User error"
[12:17] <ryanteck> The USB / Lan chip went on mine, kept resetting every few seconds

[12:24] <ryanteck> Actually on a USB3 port I think a Pi should be perfectly fine running off a PC
[12:24] <Triffid_Hunter> dape8708: in theory it gives 0.1A until the device asks for up to 0.5A which is then provided. in practice most PC USB ports have nothing but an 0.5A polyfuse between system 5v and the port, which generally won't open below 0.8-1.2A
[12:24] <ShiftPlusOne> I think in most cases it will run fine on a desktop pc usb port anyway

[12:27] <gordonDrogon> k1i, Hi. I never use networkmanager.
[12:27] <k1i> gotcha
[12:28] <ryanteck> I wonder if you could do "Troll physics" with a Raspberry Pi
[12:28] <gordonDrogon> All my PCs, Pi's are hardwired - some use dhcp, some static IP addresses.
[12:28] <k1i> with /etc/network/interfaces?
[12:28] <gordonDrogon> My Laptops use dhcp and I use the WiCd program to access Wi-Fi on them.
[12:28] <gordonDrogon> k1i, yes with /etc/network/interface.
[12:28] <k1i> gotcha
[12:29] <Triffid_Hunter> most of my computers have eth0 and wlan0 bonded for active backup, preferring eth0
[12:29] <Triffid_Hunter> try setting that up with networkmanager ;)
[12:29] <k1i> I am trying to develop an embedded device on the rpi platform
[12:29] <k1i> need to easily be able to write a web interface to change networking settings fluidly
[12:29] <gordonDrogon> k1i, not that hard...
[12:29] <ryanteck> I think I know my next youtube video :3
[12:29] <ryanteck> Pi powering Pi!
[12:30] <k1i> networkmanager uses dbus, so its fairly "easily" - lol - implemented, I guess
[12:30] <mjr> it could work by backpowering the first pi from its usb host ports
[12:30] <gordonDrogon> k1i, Hm. I did that some 10 years ago - developed a litle small office firewall/file server applicance...
[12:30] <Triffid_Hunter> ryanteck: is that the one where you hook the first pi to a 10A bench supply and see how many you can chain before the end one won't run properly?
[12:31] <gordonDrogon> Heh... you'll lose a fraction of a vold on each one via the polyfuse...
[12:31] <ryanteck> brb
[12:31] <gordonDrogon> volt, even...

[12:36] * Milos (~Milos@pdpc/supporter/student/milos) Quit (Ping timeout: 260 seconds)
[12:36] <k1i> my main thing is
[12:36] <k1i> if say wlan0 or eth0 get misconfigured
[12:37] <k1i> or the device goes crazy
[12:37] <k1i> I need to have a physical button sequence (konami?) to set eth0 back to dhcp and standard settings
[12:37] <gordonDrogon> jumper over the gpio pins.
[12:37] <k1i> commercial
[12:38] <k1i> no access to the pins
[12:38] <gordonDrogon> put a little botton somewhere - the sort you push with a paper clip...
[12:38] <k1i> ah
[12:38] <k1i> good idea
[12:38] * hadifarnoud (~hadifarno@dab-ell2-h-1-5.dab.02.net) Quit (Ping timeout: 260 seconds)

[12:39] <gordonDrogon> something like that...
[12:40] * linuxthefish is now known as linuxthefish`
[12:40] <gordonDrogon> I run my little PBXs purely from RAM, so a 128MB ramdisk for the OS and 128MB for linux. You can get a lot into 128MB if you try.
[12:40] <k1i> it would be cool if the devices could just fire up an ad-hoc network with dhcpd running or something
[12:40] <k1i> to connect and reconfigure if the need ever arose
[12:41] <gordonDrogon> it should be fine with a 512MB Pi, but I've no inclanation to try.
[12:41] <Triffid_Hunter> k1i: 169.254 block is set aside for ad-hoc networks
[12:41] <gordonDrogon> my idea was to never write to the OS part of the CF card it booted from.
[12:41] <k1i> Triffid_Hunter: I was just thinking in terms of autoconf
[12:45] * mpmc|Away is now known as mpmc
[12:46] <nid0> fwiw my webserver pi currently serves everything directly from ram, it just has a 30MB ramdisk thats formatted and mounted on boot and everything copied from the disk, and apache executes from there
[12:46] <nid0> works very well
[12:47] <darknite> and apache performs well on it?
[12:47] <nid0> yep
[12:48] <darknite> i haven't tried the limits of my pi, but i figured that nginx would be a more lightweight choice for webserver
[12:48] <nid0> http://www.ratherdisturbing.co.uk - thats my pi-served wordpress install, nothing on it but loads very quickly
[12:48] <nid0> nginx or lighttpd are very light on resource usage for static content, but for dynamic php code you might just as well use apache
[12:48] <k1i> i have ruby 1.9.3 running rails and thin smoothly

[12:52] <gordonDrogon> Ah, that's a 140MB system :)
[12:53] <gordonDrogon> I just don't have inclanation to do this on the Pi though although it makes an OK asterisk server, but the issues with the Ethernet sort of put me off. I'm really not sure it can handle many calls.
[12:53] <k1i> what issues?
[12:54] <gordonDrogon> VoIP needs low latency full duplex. it's also small (160 byte) packets at 50/sec in and 50/sec out - per call.
[12:54] * mark_vh (~pi@a91-152-107-216.elisa-laajakaista.fi) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[12:54] <gordonDrogon> so any issues that detract from that are going to give you call quality problems.
[12:55] <k1i> did you create a web interface to smooth over the /interfaces file
[12:55] <k1i> or did you just provide a raw editor for it?
[12:55] <gordonDrogon> web interface.
[12:55] <k1i> things like the ability to toggle dhcp on/off, etc?

[12:57] <k1i> er
[12:57] <k1i> the VOIP
[12:57] <opieng> hi all, anyone have any neat solutions on attaching a mini camera to the Raspberry pi?
[12:57] <k1i> so the interface is only half-duplex?
[12:57] <k1i> and you can only get full speed one direction
[12:57] <k1i> ?
[12:58] <gordonDrogon> speed isn't everything - yes, the pi is 100Mb/sec and VoIP needs 80Kb/sec, but it's the full-duplex nature and the packet rate that's critical in VoIP
[12:58] <nid0> the ethernet port itself handles duplex but its hooked up to a usb hub, it isnt a dedicated lan interface
[12:58] * XenGi (~XenGi@2a02:748:a800:149:154:158:199:1) has joined #raspberrypi
[12:58] <k1i> ah
[12:58] <gordonDrogon> it's no worse than Wi-Fi which is somewhat sub-optimal (IMO) for VoIP
[13:00] <mjr> I'm not very pessimistic about the voip prospects but it's certainly something to keep in mind (and perhaps benchmark in practice)
[13:02] <gordonDrogon> I've been "doing voip" for 5 or 6 years now - won't say I'm an expert, but I have a feel for what is easy and what's not :)
[13:03] * lbm (~lbm@mufasa.lbm.dk) Quit (Quit: later)
[13:03] <mjr> at some point there was a huge overhead for small packets on the usb ethernet - but only for one direction, don't recall which. If that's still the case, it might amplify the potential latency issues nastily.
[13:03] * linuxstb finds VOIP relatively straightfoward, apart from when it comes to SIP and NAT
[13:03] <k1i> SIP and NAT is unfortuante, honestly
[13:04] <k1i> ipv6 would make the VOIP world so much nicer
[13:04] * lbm (~lbm@mufasa.lbm.dk) has joined #raspberrypi
[13:04] <gordonDrogon> that's just part of the problem. greedy ISPs are another.
[13:06] * chris_99 (~chris_99@unaffiliated/chris-99/x-3062929) has joined #raspberrypi
[13:06] <gordonDrogon> and attitude. Skype is free, so selling voip is hard - especially if the call quality isn't 100%. people (even businesses!) will put up with crappy skypeee quality as long as its free and it's impossible to compete with that.
[13:07] <gordonDrogon> so I've more or less given up selling it, just maintaining my existing VoIP customers until I work out a new plan...
[13:07] <k1i> PBX is where you can sell it
[13:07] <k1i> heh
[13:07] * mark_vh (~pi@a91-152-107-216.elisa-laajakaista.fi) has joined #raspberrypi

[13:09] <ryanteck> gordonDrogon skype is quite handy in most ways
[13:09] <ryanteck> a lot simpler for people to use as they already know how, some VOIP software people find confusing
[13:09] <Joeboy> Hopefully webrtc will kill it
[13:11] <Joeboy> or at least make it interoperate
[13:11] <ryanteck> Model A is now on sale in Europe!
[13:12] <Joeboy> Yeah!!?
[13:12] <linuxstb> gordonDrogon: I'm surprised you say businesses don't care about quality. I setup a VOIP system for our company, and our priority was definitely quality (and reliability) above price (we chose AQL as our provider, and have been happy)

[14:10] <gordonDrogon> I just don't have any nostalgia at all for "PC's" ...
[14:11] <fairuz_> It's solar, so sometimes there will be not enough power. So I'm afraid if the filesystem will be corrupt or something
[14:11] <Davespice> heh cool, those are the ones where you can see each line coming up one char by char?
[14:11] <ShiftPlusOne> unstable as in unregulated?
[14:11] <fairuz_> ShiftPlusOne: No, as in there is probability that the power will be cut off
[14:11] <ShiftPlusOne> ah, if there's not enough power, corruption is quite likely, yes.
[14:11] <fairuz_> My concern is just on the corruption issue
[14:12] <fairuz_> Which storage device that is not prone to these kind of things?
[14:12] <fairuz_> what about emmc?

[14:15] <ShiftPlusOne> filesystem - definitely, storage - not 100% sure, but the sdcard driver is prone to corrupting data, especially when overclocking, cutting off power or using a bad voltage.
[14:15] <ShiftPlusOne> I haven't personally had my pi corrupt any data yet.

[14:44] <fairuz_> Triffid_Hunter: ShiftPlusOne: I will read some sensors data and save the data in the storage. One other way to avoid corruption is to frequently flush the data to the disk right? I wonder how we can achieve this? Can we disable caching in the ram or something similar
[14:44] <fairuz_> ?
[14:44] * Mp5shooter (~Mp5@unaffiliated/mp5shooter) has joined #raspberrypi
[14:45] <ShiftPlusOne> in theory you can run 'sync' each time you write, but It won't really do anything, since it will probably sync straight away anyway.
[14:47] <Triffid_Hunter> fairuz_: you might be able to attach a large capacitor, and add an ADC to monitor its voltage so the rpi has warning that the power is failing
[14:47] <Triffid_Hunter> fairuz_: that is unless you have batteries or something, in which case monitor those instead
[14:48] <fairuz_> Triffid_Hunter: Great idea!
[14:49] <Triffid_Hunter> fairuz_: when you detect power is failing, sync and remount root readonly. anything that can go in a tmpfs should go in a tmpfs, eg boot service statuses etc

[14:50] <cityLights> hi all
[14:50] <cityLights> how to reduce memory used by gpu?
[14:50] <SixtyFold> anyone in the USA able to tell me what shipping and handling was from newmark for rPi?
[14:50] <Triffid_Hunter> fairuz_: there's also stuff you can do about _how_ the data is written.. eg always create a new file for new data, then delete old files if there's not enough free space.. there's a discussion somewhere about how dhcp manages its lease files in as atomic a fashion as is possible
[14:51] <cityLights> I tried to put gpu_mem=32 in /boot/config.txt
[14:51] <Triffid_Hunter> fairuz_: may also want to separate data from operating system partitions, and leave the OS partition readonly during boot. this way, the OS can't be taken out by power disappearing unexpectedly
[14:51] <pronto> SixtyFold: if you're in usaland order from MCM electronics
[14:51] <SixtyFold> pronto - thanks, will check it out

[16:32] <ShockAbsorber> Hi...
[16:32] <RaTTuS|BIG> umm model A ordered
[16:32] <IT_Sean> WOOT!
[16:32] <RaTTuS|BIG> http://uk.farnell.com/jsp/search/productdetail.jsp?sku=2254699&CMP=i-bf9f-00001000
[16:33] <RaTTuS|BIG> or http://raspberrypi.rsdelivers.com/product/raspberry-pi/raspberry-pi-type-a/raspberry-pi-type-a-single-board-computer-256mb/7568317.aspx
[16:33] <ShockAbsorber> Anyone using wordpress on the pi?
[16:33] <IT_Sean> I saw on the website this morning that they are shipping the Model A to Europe now.
[16:34] <IT_Sean> Soon to be shipped to the rest of the globe.
[16:34] <nid0> ShockAbsorber: http://www.ratherdisturbing.co.uk
[16:34] <nid0> thats an (empty) install I have on a pi
[16:34] <RaTTuS|BIG> ShockAbsorber http://www.dingleberrypi.com/
[16:35] <ParkerR> RaTTuS|BIG, Better yet. Buy a model B, take off the USB hub/ethernet controller, and bridge two bad with a 0ohm resistor (piece of wire) Basically makes it a model A with 512mb of RAM
[16:35] * int3nz0r (~int3nz0r@ has joined #raspberrypi
[16:35] <ParkerR> *bridge two pads
[16:36] <ShockAbsorber> cool, I was able to get something similar on my pi...but not sure how to link it to a URL like that, or make it available outside my home network.
[16:36] <RaTTuS|BIG> bt still draws more power - model A is perfect for other things
[16:36] <nid0> ShockAbsorber: first step is buy a domain if you dont have one, or use any number of free URL services
[16:36] <ParkerR> RaTTuS|BIG, Not much more power. The extra power the B was pulling is from the usb hub/ethernet chip
[16:37] * shirish (~quassel@unaffiliated/shirish) has joined #raspberrypi
[16:37] <ParkerR> Take that out and it's about the same power consumption
[16:37] <ParkerR> If no the same
[16:37] * KuchenKe_ (~kuchenker@ has joined #raspberrypi
[16:37] <ParkerR> *not
[16:37] <ShockAbsorber> Nid: TY...ok. Was afraid of that. i guess I need to get a Fixed IP address then. also a ay item...getting more expensive.
[16:37] <ShockAbsorber> pay item that is...
[16:38] <IT_Sean> You will either need a fixed IP, or a DynDNS type service.
[16:38] <nid0> you can get free dns addresses from... free
[16:38] <ParkerR> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L1EihTxIdnQ
[16:38] <nid0> its your choice if you want to spend ??5 on a domain
[16:38] <IT_Sean> A fixed IP would be preferable, of course.
[16:38] <RaTTuS|BIG> I have model B 256MB [and a 512] 256 is just what I need in some things
[16:38] * peterrus (~peterrus@5352B04C.cm-6-3c.dynamic.ziggo.nl) has joined #raspberrypi
[16:38] <ParkerR> RaTTuS|BIG, Thats the video describing it
[16:38] <ShockAbsorber> free dns address?! Cool! TY, I'll check into it.
[16:38] <RaTTuS|BIG> yarg see it
[16:39] <ShockAbsorber> Also: How do you do your wordpress website on a PC and upload it to the pi? Working on the pi is Waaaaay too slow.
[16:39] <nid0> whats slow about working on the pi?
[16:39] * Piffer (~Piffer@p5797286D.dip.t-dialin.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[16:39] <nid0> you wget the wordpress package, extract it, and its there
[16:39] <nid0> takes like 20 seconds
[16:40] <IT_Sean> nid0: i think ShockAbsorber is talking about doing the content creation on his PC, as he feels the pi is too slow for that. Not the actual install itself.
[16:40] * KuchenKerze (~kuchenker@ Quit (Ping timeout: 264 seconds)
[16:41] * GentileBen is now known as bozhang
[16:41] <IT_Sean> That said... if you have WP running on the Pi, can't you publish from any web browser, including one on your PC, phone, tablet, etc... ?
[16:41] <nid0> well in that case you just login to the wordpress install from any browser
[16:41] <ShockAbsorber> The GUI...but maybe my memory for the GPU is too low. as I am typing the usage meter on the bottom right is up at the top and it doesn't accept the characters I am typing.
[16:42] <nid0> forget the pi's gui, if you're planning on using it as a server ditch the ui and any screen/keyboard you have hooked up, and access it via ssh
[16:42] <ShockAbsorber> you can use wordpress without the GUI?!
[16:42] <ShockAbsorber> I hate the GUI!
[16:43] <nid0> wordpress and your pi's gui have nothing to do with each other. maybe you should clarify what you're doing and what you're wanting to do
[16:43] <ShockAbsorber> ok, i'll look up SSH, thanks
[16:43] <IT_Sean> you can publish content from the web broswer on your pee cee.
[16:43] <IT_Sean> you do not need to do it directly on the pi
[16:43] <Kubsle> hey I have B with 256MB, there are a lot of performance jump when I change it to model 512?
[16:43] <nid0> Kubsle: depends entirely on what you're doing with it
[16:43] <IT_Sean> ^ wot 'e said
[16:43] <IT_Sean> How much ram are you using now?
[16:44] <ShockAbsorber> I'm following an example on how to get the pi online
[16:44] <ShockAbsorber> from a book
[16:44] <Kubsle> I for a lot of thinks
[16:44] <Kubsle> but sometimes for XBMC
[16:44] <Kubsle> xbian distro
[16:44] * Jck_true (~Jcktrue@unaffiliated/jcktrue/x-390518) Quit (Quit: leaving)
[16:44] <ShockAbsorber> I think it said to set the 32k
[16:45] <ShockAbsorber> Actually, I am using the adafruit distro and the book's directions, maybe there is a conflict.
[16:46] <ShockAbsorber> adafruit=occidentalis, I think.
[16:46] <IT_Sean> Kubsle: if you are running close to the 256mb limit on your current Pi, then upgrading to the new rev might be a good idea. That said, if you are currently not using all of the 256mb available on your current Pi, then upgrading to the 512mb model will give you no benefit.
[16:47] <Kubsle> XBMC when I running movie uses 60% mem in ps aux
[16:47] <Kubsle> so I thing I won't get any benefits
[16:47] <Kubsle> I think*
[16:48] <IT_Sean> So, it sounds like xbmc is using a little over half of the available memory.
[16:48] * intothev01d (~intothev0@unaffiliated/intothev01d) Quit (Quit: intothev01d)
[16:48] <ShockAbsorber> So, so I can log onto the pi by using my pc and going to the address or something like that, and it picks up the index.html file on the pi...but how do you upload? I haven't used FTP in about 15 years...but I am guessing it is something like that, and I need to find a way to 'log in' and 'get write access' to that folder?
[16:48] <IT_Sean> Don't let us talk you out of getting one... 'cause you can do some interisting stuff with multiple Pis, but, if your only reason for upgrading is the 512mb of RAM, it sounds like you won't really see the benefit with your stated usage.
[16:48] * Piffer (~Piffer@p5797286D.dip.t-dialin.net) Quit (Quit: cu)
[16:48] <nid0> you dont need to upload anything from your pc to your pi to install wordpress
[16:49] <IT_Sean> ShockAbsorber: have you ever used wordpress?
[16:49] <nid0> have you actually managed to get a webserver, php, and mysql running on your pi yet?
[16:49] <ShockAbsorber> Nid0: yes...
[16:50] * Flemzard is now known as Flemzard`away
[16:50] <Torikun> yo
[16:50] <nid0> so login to it via ssh (using putty or any other ssh client), navigate to your web folder, wget the wordpress install package, extract it, login to the mysql command line, create a database and mysql user, then access the wordpress package's folder via any browser and itll run you through the install process
[16:50] <ShockAbsorber> I just need a decent webpage editor on the pi cmd line now I guess...that way I don't need the pc.
[16:50] <nid0> no need to upload anything from your pc to your pi
[16:51] <ShockAbsorber> Ok, I'll go look up this 'ssh' thing now and see what it is.
[16:51] <IT_Sean> ShockAbsorber: to publish stuff to your wordpress blog thinger, you don't need to do the content creation on the Pi. You can do it from any PC, via Wordpress's web iinterface.
[16:51] <IT_Sean> did he really just say "this 'ssh' thing" ?
[16:51] * IT_Sean facepalms
[16:51] <zleap> ShockAbsorber, why not use a gui one on the pi and use via ssh -X to view grapical apps over the network
[16:51] * DDave copy pastes that into notepad, lines to remember
[16:51] <DDave> :D
[16:52] <ShockAbsorber> is it a program?

[17:17] <bge> Since it's a zip file, you need to unzip it first, with 7zip or winrar
[17:17] <gordonjcp> yeah, I'm trying to figure out how to do that
[17:17] <bge> Then you download the raspbian image and upzip that as well, again, using 7zip or winrar
[17:17] <gordonjcp> you know what, this is doing my head in

[17:50] <IT_Sean> So... not really something you could do at home.
[17:50] <IT_Sean> But, it's a very interisting concept.

[18:32] <TLoFP> theoretically capable of running at 20 MHz
[18:32] <TLoFP> so an almost 20 Mbit/s throughput should be approachable
[18:32] <swart> I see. I guess the arduino library wouldn't be much use then, because it won't take advantage of the SPI hardware?

[19:08] <gordonDrogon> it's not mirrored anywhere. the one on github is maintained by someone else who uses it to make wrappers for python, ruby, etc.
[19:08] <gordonDrogon> your issue might be addressing more than 2 of these on the Pi.
[19:08] <TLoFP> I see
[19:09] <TLoFP> well, after I get something to work I will want to play with low level access
[19:09] <TLoFP> as long as I can tell the RPi to put out a clock
[19:09] <TLoFP> and tell it what to put on the MOSI pins, read on the MISO pins, then I can controll the slaves by bitbanging GPIO ports

[19:14] <mgottschlag> "The General Purpose clocks can be output to GPIO pins."
[19:15] <mgottschlag> you have little control about the PLLs behind it

[20:49] <DJRWolf> thinking of making a large cluster system with dozens of Model B's, looking for ways to simplify power supply and thought large port hubs might work
[20:50] <pet0> i just installed raspbian and when i startx it seems a little slow lagging all the time.. is it normal?
[20:50] <ParkerR> 5 minutes after launching eclipse. Signs of life!
[20:50] <DDave> pet0, assign more memory to the gpu perhaps?
[20:50] <pet0> or would it help if i overclock the arm?

[20:50] <pet0> DDave: will try thanks
[20:51] <fperkins> i saw an article recently with a supercomputer made of pi's
[20:51] <IT_Sean> I would recommend supplying 5v directly to the 5v GPIO pin on each Pi in the cluster.

[21:03] <TLoFP> gordonDrogon thanks for the info, now why are we restricted to only two Slave Select lines, pin 8 and 7. Slave Select Lines don't need special hardware behind them, they just have to be able to toggle on and off, how can we make use of the other GPIO pins to toggle chips on and off?

[21:07] <ech0s7> yes ParkerR
[21:07] <ech0s7> i have it
[21:07] <gordonjcp> if you're going to use anything radio-y you really need a powered hub

[21:10] <Macer> i would install it on my server one but xforwarding libreoffice the ssh overhead would be too high
[21:11] <gordonjcp> ryanteck: do you know what class 3G modem it is?
[21:11] <mjr> ech0s7, essentially you need a powered hub (possibly backpowering the pi through there while you're at it) or you need to power it through the gpio 5v/gnd pins which bypasses the input fuse and cross your fingers
[21:11] <ParkerR> mjr, Or just use a better power supply
[21:11] <ParkerR> Easiest solution
[21:11] * gordonjcp uses a 5.5V supply
[21:11] <gordonjcp> you lose a good 300mV across the polyfuse
[21:12] <gordonjcp> if the 5V supply or cable is in any way marginal, you will have problems
[21:12] <mjr> ParkerR, no, the input fuse will limit the current through the microusb power input, I doubt it lets through enough for both the wifi and the 3g stick no matter how good the power brick is
[21:12] <ParkerR> mjr, Where did you get a 3g stick from? All I saw him say was wifi and keyboard/mouse receiver
[21:13] <ech0s7> ParkerR: i don't know there isn't written behind the device
[21:13] <ParkerR> Oh I see
[21:13] <Macer> someone should just make a usb hub with a small battery that charges from the pi ports at their max
[21:13] <Macer> :)
[21:13] <ech0s7> i'm buying powered hub
[21:13] <Macer> yeah but with a powered hub you have all that clutter
[21:13] <Macer> heh
[21:13] <ech0s7> which must be the right value beetween TP1 and TP2 ?

[21:20] * IT_Sean (~Ult_Ubunt@applefritter/IRCStaff/UltimateMacUser1) has joined #raspberrypi
[21:21] <gordonDrogon> TLoFP, you could use ordinary GPIO lines as select lines - program them as outputs, set them high, then set one low, do the SPI xfer then set it high agaim immediately after.
[21:21] <TLoFP> gordonDrogon: what is the reason for this? SS lines are equivalent to GPIO lines
[21:21] * shurizzle (~shura@unaffiliated/shurizzle) has joined #raspberrypi
[21:21] <gordonDrogon> TLoFP, the SS lines are controlled by the SPI hardware driver on the chip.
[21:21] <TLoFP> gordonDrogon: yes, that is exactly what I would like to do, but how to disable the original slave select line
[21:21] <FrankBlues> Actually, in ye olde days, I compiled a new ld.so, then thought that deleting it and copying the new one was a good idea, without realising that cp, ls, rm, and the like all rely on ld.so. Reinstall of linux (Slackware 1, so about 25 "A" disks, and 11 or so "X" disks). :|
[21:21] <TLoFP> fancy
[21:22] <gordonDrogon> TLoFP, you can't disable them - I'd probably ignore them.
[21:22] <TLoFP> gordonDrogon: ever tried bit bannging SPI?
[21:22] <gordonDrogon> TLoFP, no - it's possible to drive it directly, but I belive that using the kernel driver is the best way.

[22:19] <DGMurdockIII> so press power on my remote wheile it on it would rebote

[22:41] <gordonDrogon> KiltedPi, where are you from?

[23:15] <krosis> nice
[23:16] <gordonDrogon> surprises me that there is any difference with/without modules, but I presume you had some iptables rules as well as just loading the modules?
[23:16] <Dagger2> I didn't properly test to see how slow it gets with many iptables rules. it gets a bit slower with each rule, but nothing like the 30 Mbit/s drop that just loading the modules caused
[23:16] <Dagger2> nope, no rules
[23:16] <Dagger2> surprised me as well
[23:17] <Dagger2> well, I expected some drop from loading them... but not 30 Mbit/s

[23:21] <Dagger2> that would explain it

[23:41] <swart> why is it in a makefile?
[23:41] <swart> is it the install target?
[23:41] <scummos^> because I can type "make flash" to compile and re-flash my program
[23:41] <swart> interesting
[23:41] <zleap> if you want to use basic chat to gordon about return to basic,
[23:42] <gordonDrogon> I did something similar when I was playing with the atmega on the gertboard initially.
