[4:02] <alexhairyman> Zopiac, if you shrink the partition you can fit it on a 1gb
[4:02] <alexhairyman> I think
[4:02] <alexhairyman> you have to fdisk the image file though
[4:02] <Zopiac> ah
[4:02] <alexhairyman> make it smaller by about 300-400 mb
[4:02] <alexhairyman> and then resize2fs it

[4:05] <burito> howdy folks
[4:05] <alexhairyman> parted no longer supports resizing apparently, but hold on
[4:05] <Zopiac> hey burito
[4:06] <Primer> You can't resizefs to make file systems smaller
[4:06] <Primer> only bigger
[4:06] <burito> Primer: well you *can*... but the chances of it not killing your partition are about on par with Microsoft releasing a linux distro
[4:07] <Primer> no, you can't
[4:07] <burito> maybe my mind's wandering in vfat land
[4:07] <Primer> I would make a file with dd that's the size you want, mkfs the file, loop mount it, then copy the contents over
[4:08] <Primer> but if the image needs to be bootable...then you have to jump through a few other hoops
[4:08] <Zopiac> how do I make a file of an explicit size?
[4:08] <burito> dd has a "count" argument
[4:08] <Primer> dd if=/dev/zero of=file bs=1024M count=10
[4:08] <Primer> makes a 10G file
[4:09] <alexhairyman> what primer said would work, but it'll take a while (not too terrible though)
[4:10] <Primer> mkfs.extX for your favorite flavor of X
[4:10] <Primer> mount -o loop file mountpoint
[4:10] <Primer> cp -a /path/to/source/* mountpoint
[4:10] <Primer> right, it would take a while to dd and cp
[4:10] <burito> as far as I remember, Primer's method is the distro folks do it
[4:10] <burito> ... way the distro folks do it
[4:10] <Primer> this technique is old as time
[4:11] <Primer> EPOCH TIME THAT IS!!!
[4:11] <alexhairyman> if it's a multi-part file you use fdisk -lu and mount -o offset=`echo START * 512 | bc` to get the right FS
[4:11] <burito> yup, last time I done it was back in 2001 on LFS

[4:19] <Zopiac> OK I have a 1gb empty file and the two partitions available to me
[4:19] <Zopiac> partitions of the raspbian image, that is
[4:19] <SimonJ57> burito: Whats good? You don't mind answering a couple of questions that may or may not been asked 100 times over?
[4:20] <Zopiac> What do I have to copy over? do I have to partition the image I made?
[4:20] <burito> it's my first day in the channel, but hey sure, I'm always up for investigating
[4:21] <SimonJ57> burito: Do you own a Rasp-Pi?
[4:21] <burito> yup, am using him right now as my desktop
[4:22] <burito> it's Summer here in Australia, so I'd much rather use my 4w RPi than my 850w QuadCore
[4:22] <SimonJ57> Cool, I'm looking at a model B package and a pre-installed (What I assume is Raspian) SD.
[4:22] <Primer> Zopiac: well, this is supposed to be a bootable image, so you probably want to replicate the partition layout of the source
[4:22] <Zopiac> gparted yells at me regarding the images though, saying that there is no proper superblock
[4:22] <Primer> Zopiac: keep in mind that you'll also need to make that image bootable later with whatever the pi uses. I'm guessing it uses grub2? If so, that's cake
[4:23] <burito> SimonJ57: the B's should be floating around the place, I got mine from a local electronics shop
[4:23] <Primer> Just now sure if that can be done on a different arch
[4:23] <Primer> s/now/not/
[4:23] <burito> the SD card is *really* easy to make, raspberrypi.org has very clear instructions
[4:23] <burito> for windows, linux and macosx
[4:24] <Primer> burito: except he wants to use arch on a 1G card, and the image is 2G
[4:24] <burito> erp, sorry Primer, was directed at SimonJ57
[4:24] <Primer> Zopiac: out of curiosity, what do df report for that loop mounted source image?
[4:24] <Primer> burito: my bad :)
[4:25] <Primer> what does*, even
[4:25] <SimonJ57> Would you say using a Rasp Pi is a good idea if you want to get into Linux? I've used Live CDs/DVDs and even installed Kubuntu on an old computer.
[4:25] <Primer> SimonJ57: IMO, no
[4:25] <Primer> but then I've only been using Linux since 1995

[4:27] <burito> SimonJ57: RaspBMC is about as friendly as it gets, but that doesn't really give you a linux environment
[4:27] <Primer> Zopiac: I presume the first partition is the root fs. If it doesn't depends on anything in the other partition, then I'd say you'd have something to work with

[4:29] <SimonJ57> burito: Learning to program; as it's been famously touted for, hell I've seen kids actually able to write programs, dedicated programming platform, yay or nay?
[4:29] <Zopiac> I like(?) how they allow you space to actually run the OS indefinitely after booting it, but I don't have a big card!
[4:29] <burito> SimonJ57: much better having a powerful desktop or that
[4:30] <burito> SimonJ57: the learning bit seems to come mostly from the GPIO pins on the RPi, with which some folks are making robots and the like
[4:31] <burito> SimonJ57: as a desktop computer, its very underpowered, I'm using it as a desktop because I don't mind using software from the 90's
[4:31] <burito> SimonJ57: anyone else would probably spill their drink over how slow chromium loads/runs

[4:33] <jeff8907> The distros for the Pi have come a long way, When I first tried to use it it seemed much slower, now i can understand a bit more using it as your primary
[4:33] <jeff8907> What is it doing ngc0202
[4:33] <burito> SimonJ57: as far as a media center is concerned, it is *perfect*, the GPU can decode the highest quality 1080 video's I have without missing a beat, and while the menus on RaspBMC may not be instantly quick, it does the job amicably

[4:35] <jeff8907> It may be a driver issue, are you on Raspbian?
[4:35] <ngc0202> I desperately need a powered hub haha
[4:35] <burito> Zopiac: not sure, I have some 1080p "Planet Earth" videos, that will bring a PC that's slower than 3Ghz to it's knees, those vids are my benchmark for video-decoding, and the RPi flogs them silly
[4:36] <jeff8907> I tried it before, but I found it was apparently the USB cable seemed to be causing the issue? Since then I did a bad burn on the SD card and havent gotten it back up

[4:37] <ngc0202> Is there any way to get the needed drivers on the thing without internet?
[4:37] <Zopiac> although one video is about the size of my card, even when it is not bugging out and showing as 1.8gb
[4:37] <ngc0202> If that's the issue
[4:37] <SimonJ57> I found a hub with an on/off switch, a physical, rocker switch..
[4:37] <burito> amusingly, the RPi can play them perfectly off of an external HDD, but the bandwidth isn't there to play them over the network
[4:37] <Zopiac> don't have an external hard drive :\
[4:37] <burito> but they are too high bitrate for 100Mbs network :-)

[4:39] <SimonJ57> Well, heres a nice choice for UK residents looking for a powered hub, unfortunatly, 10 is far too many. http://www.ebuyer.com/259359-xenta-10-port-usb-2-0-hub-mains-powered-wall-mountable-n-uh1001
[4:39] <burito> I'm using a cheap chinese no-name "powered hub", and the power for the hub is the charger for my Sony PSP
[4:39] <burito> those 10 port hubs cause no amount of troubles
[4:39] <burito> 7port or 4 port are the only sane options
[4:40] <SimonJ57> burito: I'd be sticking random USB devices in just to fil the holes, thats no insane a 10-port choice is.
[4:40] <burito> The Sony PSP charger puts out a relatively clean 5v at 2amp
[4:41] <burito> the RPi's USB isn't perfect, in my experience one slightly dodgy USB peripheral can screw things up in a big way
[4:42] <burito> 10 port hubs have a very strong and well deserved reputation
[4:42] <illwill> can anyone help with a UART problem? http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=48&t=31552&p=278612#p278612

[4:45] <burito> the further you overclock the RPi, the more sensitive it becomes to the quality of it's power supply
[4:47] <burito> fully overclocked, the RPi is actually a pretty serious bit of computing power, it will run Quake3 at 1920x1200 at over 40fps on max detail

[4:49] <tonsit> lol, i'm not running it but i'll keep that in mind
[4:50] <burito> lots of guides on the net on how to make your own linear power supply for the RPi

[5:02] <roasted> any of you fellas have an xbmc build of some sort running on an rpi? I'm seing that forward/reverse functionality is non-existent it seems.
[5:02] <Zopiac> UnaClocker: my computer wasn't liking the card, and would only read it as 1.8gb (it's a 4gb card)
[5:02] <Zopiac> the images are 2gb because they have built-in free space to work in
[5:03] <UnaClocker> roasted: Forward/reverse, like fast forward or skip ahead 30 seconds? Works fine on RaspBMC..
[5:03] <BigBadGhost> UnaClocker: I had switched it back from user to share
[5:03] <Zopiac> For whatever reason, windows was able to see 4gb and I burned the SD from there and now all is good
[5:03] <Zopiac> just gotta find my spare ethernet cables now
[5:03] <BigBadGhost> UnaClocker: Is there another way to restart it after saving the .conf?
[5:03] <UnaClocker> Cool, that's what it sounded like.. Problem writing the initial image..
[5:03] <UnaClocker> Reboot.
[5:04] <roasted> UnaClocker: like the actual fast forward buttons... where it'll play at like 2x, 4x, 16x, 32x the speed
[5:04] * mythos (~mythos@unaffiliated/mythos) has joined #raspberrypi
[5:04] <roasted> UnaClocker: everything I've read suggests it's an r-pi issue and not necessarily xbmc, but xbmc devs seem to be open to bug reports regarding it

[5:21] <chupacabra> crazytalk.

[5:21] <roasted> chupacabra: reality, bro. Been down that road many times bench testing it.
[5:21] <ivotkl> How quick would a Pi B work with a class 10 SDHC?
[5:21] <roasted> In fact, in a lot of cases with IDENTICAL experiments and only changing NFS vs SMB with each test, SMB was faster.

[5:23] <roasted> BigBadGhost: are you going to give that valid users idea a test drive?
[5:24] <BigBadGhost> Absolutely
[5:24] <burito> chupacabra: do you know Rusty has his own Samba t-short now? :-)
[5:24] <roasted> BigBadGhost: it's what I always use. Hasn't ever let me down.
[5:24] <BigBadGhost> Would I just add the user that I normally log into the Linux machine with?
[5:24] <chupacabra> LOL hehe
[5:24] <roasted> BigBadGhost: in fact most of my shares are 755 perm'd
[5:25] <BigBadGhost> When prompted for the password and login on the pi, I tried my login credentials but no go there
[5:25] <chupacabra> all the devels are saying Samba is becoming irrelevant nowadays
[5:25] <roasted> BigBadGhost: in order ot add a samba user, the user must exist on the system first. Then you can add via sudo smbpasswd -a *username*
[5:25] <roasted> chupacabra: they're full of shit.
[5:25] <chupacabra> bout like perl
[5:26] <roasted> One can argue that samba becomes less relevant due to cloud based sharing, but samba is still the absolute golden ticket when it comes to LAN based sharing, especially with different types of operating systems.
[5:26] <BigBadGhost> Ok, I did that with for the user that I log in with
[5:26] <roasted> I don't see that need changing. ever.
[5:26] <burito> roasted: you probably want to listen to chupacabra, he knows enough to make me feel inadequate, and I've been coding since 1986
[5:26] <burito> in C and assembly
[5:26] <BigBadGhost> Will add the valid users line

[5:28] <roasted> why
[5:28] <chupacabra> wouldnt use it. Why have it?
[5:28] <roasted> oh
[5:28] <roasted> can't argue with that.
[5:28] <burito> I think it's safe call that chupacabra doesn't have any windows machines in his house

[5:29] <chupacabra> a couple but i use minidnla to allow access
[5:29] <roasted> BigBadGhost: I've never used it.
[5:29] <roasted> BigBadGhost: I'm not a big fan of "guest access". Instead, I create a bogus account if I need a generic login for that.
[5:29] <roasted> BigBadGhost: personal opinion there.
[5:30] <chupacabra> Course my wireless is open so no telling how many may be on
[5:30] <roasted> BigBadGhost: in fact if I recall I think I created a user account entitled "guest" or "user" or some crap. I forget, I'll have to look. The only folder they have access to is "public" which is a random share I create on my server in case buddies come over and want to dump something on my file server.
[5:30] <BigBadGhost> is the ; before browseable a strange way for samba to comment the line out or is it needed
[5:30] <chupacabra> yup
[5:31] <burito> it's a comment
[5:31] <roasted> if I recall, ; is a comment, but a comment with a configurable option behind it
[5:31] <roasted> whereas # is simply a comment with informational purposes

[5:45] <home> hey guys :D
[5:45] <roasted> ah
[5:45] <home> what's about about the RPI
[5:45] <dr_willis> that config tool has a menu to set overclocking
[5:45] <home> mine is just sitting there
[5:45] <home> failing as an AP
[5:46] <home> anyone using RPI as a wireless aP?
[5:46] <roasted> I'm on openelec, I wonder if that changes things
[5:46] <dr_willis> i think im on the 2nd level of overclocking..
[5:46] <roasted> home: no
[5:46] <home> I have some serious connectivity problems, and ping problems..
[5:46] <roasted> dr_willis: I'm @ 800mhz on mine, but mine sucks hard at fast forwarding with xbmc (openelec) and whatnot when streaming over the LAN. I want to OC it like a banshee to see if it makes a difference (wouldn't bet a dollar it would matter tho)
[5:46] <dr_willis> #1 thng to check for any probems.. - get a better power supply.
[5:47] <dr_willis> Im just a znc server here.. so 800 works fine. makes the console snappier for me
[5:48] <home> lol dr_willis
[5:48] <roasted> I've tried many power supplies, and even metered my r-pi. the power supply I have is the most accurate one I've found.
[5:48] <illwill> has anyone tried using UART pins yet
[5:48] <home> how does one use those
[5:48] <home> what are those pins...actually
[5:49] <BigBadGhost> So using the sudo smbpasswd -a username and then adding valid users = said username to the .conf SHOULD work in theory right?
[5:50] <roasted> BigBadGhost: yes. By doing that, you're basically saying that only the users within valid users can authenticate to that share.
[5:51] <roasted> BigBadGhost: your octal rights have to be correct tho. If you have root:root 770 on it and you try to authenticate fred, it'll backfire.
[5:51] <BigBadGhost> hrm, pi is still not taking the username/pass though

[6:00] <roasted> BigBadGhost: not overly positive on that one, to be honest.
[6:00] <roasted> BigBadGhost: if all else fails, you can reboot and see (I know that's painful to suggest on a linux system tho)
[6:00] <BigBadGhost> Yeah, it's a bid odd isn't it?
[6:00] <dr_willis> i know ubuntu has several books on using samba (older ones) in the samba-doc package that basically walk ya through setting up a simple server
[6:01] <roasted> BigBadGhost: I'd try that to be honest, just for funsies.
[6:01] <dr_willis> i tend to enable the home share feature of samba.
[6:01] <roasted> home share?
[6:01] <dr_willis> then smbpasswd -a username for eachuser
[6:01] <dr_willis> Each user can access //server/theirname and it goes to /home/theirname
[6:02] <home> :
[6:02] * cccyRegeaneWolfe is now known as cccy_RegeaneWolf
[6:02] <dr_willis> its a dynamic share. ;) based on username
[6:02] <roasted> ah
[6:02] <roasted> I remember reading about that
[6:02] <roasted> I've never used it tho
[6:02] <dr_willis> about the only share i normally enable
[6:02] <dr_willis> i sometimes share /media/ also
[6:02] <BigBadGhost> How do I check if the samba service is actually running?
[6:02] <roasted> I always create my shares manually, but then again I always have a raid array mounted at /media/storage which is where the data lives on my server
[6:02] <roasted> BigBadGhost: service --status-all gives you a list of everything
[6:03] <roasted> I'm not sure how my /media/storage antics would compare to the home sharing capabilities of samba, though...

[6:10] <roasted> BigBadGhost: did you try rebooting the samba server (mint desktop etc)

[6:18] <BigBadGhost> Yes, I went to the parent directory and just did a chmod 777 Movies

[6:19] <roasted> even if music is 777, storage is still 770 root:root

[6:19] <roasted> I wouldn't do that

[6:23] <roasted> bingo
[6:23] <roasted> look at those permissions in a singular line
[6:23] <roasted> you have rwxr-x---
[6:24] <roasted> break them up into three groups
[6:24] <roasted> owner/group/others
[6:24] <roasted> thw rwx is for the owner, meaning the owner has full reign since he has rwx - read write execute

[6:35] <roasted> BigBadGhost: we're almost there, I'm sure of it.
[6:35] <BigBadGhost> done
[6:35] <roasted> It's just a permissions/authentication issue. The real meat is already there, though.

[6:38] <roasted> To be honest... I say f it... reboot the server
[6:39] <roasted> I distantly recall a similar issue I had at some point and I refused to reboot my server... but ultimately I got impatient and did so and it fixed my issue.
[6:39] <roasted> There was a service I was needing to restart that I was missing.

[6:44] <ShiftPlusOne> xiambax, you can install an ethernet jack, but it won't do anything, since there's no ethernet controller. I am still not sure what you mean by pull the usb port. Just remove it?
[6:44] <roasted> shit
[6:44] <ShiftPlusOne> roasted, >=/
[6:44] <roasted> BigBadGhost: I hate to do this to you but I'm running on fumes here
[6:45] <roasted> BigBadGhost: do you post on ubuntuforums or anything like that?
[6:45] <xiambax> ShiftPlusOne: well there isn't a hub on the board so i figured you would have to pull the jack
[6:45] <BigBadGhost> No worries, I am not giving up :) Will see what else I can come up with.
[6:45] <roasted> ShiftPlusOne: >=/
[6:46] <BigBadGhost> roasted: I do appreciate all of the help though. I'm glad it wasn't me going crazy or anything

[6:46] <ShiftPlusOne> xiambax, it's the word 'pull' I am not getting. You want to tug on it or something? =p
[6:46] <xiambax> aka remove
[6:47] <roasted> BigBadGhost: post the issue up on ubuntuforums or something like that, see if you can get some hits.
[6:47] <ShiftPlusOne> xiambax, yay. You can, but you shouldn't. There is no hub, but it's connected straight to the bcm chip which has a usb controller.
[6:47] <BigBadGhost> Someone brought it up earlier but the question was, "Why are you using samba to share a *nix to *nix"
[6:47] <roasted> yeah
[6:47] <roasted> you don't need Samba for linux to linux file sharing
[6:47] <ShiftPlusOne> xiambax, so you can still either use 1 device or plug in your own hub.
[6:47] <xiambax> Did they recommend NFS?
[6:47] <roasted> instead you can use NFS, but I find NFS to be kind of :/
[6:48] <BigBadGhost> Only reason I could come up with was because I don't know how to set it up any other way :P
[6:48] <roasted> In order for NFS to work, you need to have matching UID's on both systems, which is a royal pain in the tailpipe.
[6:48] <xiambax> Yeah, I have never been able to get nfs to work properly.
[6:48] * ChanServ sets mode +o ShiftPlusOne
[6:48] <xiambax> I use Apple file shares as I own a mac

[6:49] <roasted> Just my 2c speaking though.
[6:49] <Triffid_Hunter> I've stopped using nfs, it caused too many problems for me.. I tend to prefer sshfs these days

[9:43] <tapout> to play music?
[9:43] <tapout> i didn't know a console app would play a *.flv or anything
[9:44] <tapout> i'm just trying to get vnc running to play the sound
[9:44] <gordonjcp> well mplayer has various backends
[9:44] <gordonjcp> why vnc?
[9:44] <tapout> oh if i said vnc, sorry
[9:44] <tapout> vlc rather
[9:44] <gordonjcp> I *did* wonder
[9:44] <gordonjcp> window manager != X
[9:44] <gordonjcp> X just draws stuff
[9:44] <tapout> i thought X windows = what i see
[9:45] <gordonjcp> *kind of*
[9:45] <gordonjcp> X Windows is the thing that actually draws stuff
[9:45] <gordonjcp> you say "draw a line", X draws a line
[9:45] <gordonjcp> that's why it's called an X *server*
[9:45] <tapout> what window manager is this using?

[9:59] <ShiftPlusOne> No, I use arch and I just compiled it myself.
[10:00] <tapout> you use 'arch'? arch linux?
[10:00] <ShiftPlusOne> yes
[10:00] <tapout> i thought we were stuck with raspberian pi or whatever it is.. wheezy
[10:00] <ShiftPlusOne> doesn't matter though it will take a minute to download iozone and compile it on raspbian
[10:00] <Tachyon`> raspbian
[10:00] <ShiftPlusOne> No, you can use a large range of distros
[10:00] <Tachyon`> arch is for people who are overly masochistic
[10:01] <ShiftPlusOne> Tachyon`, not true, that would be gentoo or lfs
[10:01] <ShiftPlusOne> arch isn't any more 'complicated' than raspbian, imho

[10:03] <ShiftPlusOne> isable in what way?
[10:03] <ShiftPlusOne> *usable
[10:03] <Tachyon`> well,e xcept on teh pandora where it wouldn't boot at all
[10:04] <tapout> is there one distro that works the best, in performance than another or are they all similar
[10:04] <nid0> theres not much difference performance wise, which distro you use is largely just personal preference
[10:04] <Tachyon`> they're all much the same
[10:04] <ShiftPlusOne> tapout, I think all the hardfloat distros will have the same performance, apart fromt he different boot times and preinstalled bloat.
[10:04] <Tachyon`> things like overclocoking and debug will make some difference
[10:04] <Tachyon`> as will hardhf if the apps actually use it
[10:07] <tapout> my | key doesn't work, anyone ever have that? i get ~ or #

[10:14] <Dyskette> But yeah, 105 is a standard keyboard + winkeys and the rmb-alike-key
[10:14] <ShiftPlusOne> better than asking the user to count the number of keys and wonder if media, function or macro keys count
[10:15] <Dyskette> ShiftPlusOne: those keys are not generic

[10:15] <nid0> isnt 105 european, and 104 us?
[10:15] <ShiftPlusOne> Doesn't mean it's not silly
[10:15] <nid0> being as us keyboards have 1 less key
[10:15] <Dyskette> nid0: what is a european keyboard exactly? You mean UK?
[10:15] <erska> US keyboard has 104 keys, I think.. many european layouts have 105 keys, the extra key is located between left shift and Z, and it usually has the | in it (among other varying characters)
[10:16] <Dyskette> Because there are lots of countries in europe, and they all use different keyboard layouts/keycounts
[10:16] <SimonJ57> Dyskette: Anywhere from europe, French, spanish, german, even nordic languages IIRC.
[10:16] <Dyskette> My Danish keyboards have two-three more keys than my UK keyboards
[10:16] <nid0> Dyskette: as far as I know in terms of key number, european keyboards are all 105 regardless of whether they're uk qwerty, german azerty, etc
[10:16] * Dyskette shakes her head
[10:16] <SimonJ57> Dyskette: You and your SS key, what is that symbol for?
[10:16] <Dyskette> SimonJ57: SS?
[10:17] <Dyskette> SimonJ57: it's the ?? and ?? mainly
[10:17] <SimonJ57> Dyskette: Top left of your keyboard, looks like two S's stacked.
[10:17] <Dyskette> (28-letter alphabet, plus w)
[10:17] <Dyskette> SimonJ57: er... no?
[10:18] <SimonJ57> Dyskette: I might be confusing the danish to a norweigan layout.
[10:18] <SimonJ57> as far away as they are.
[10:18] <tapout> hey ShiftPlusOne, how long does your iozone usually take to rung?
[10:18] <tapout> run?>
[10:18] <SimonJ57> And I apologise.
[10:18] <ShiftPlusOne> tapout, depends on the options. If defaults, then forever.
[10:19] <Dyskette> Anyway, worktime.
[10:19] * Dyskette runs away
[10:19] <tapout> ShiftPlusOne, i got .. 51200, 4 .. and then nothing
[10:19] <tapout> one line
[10:19] <Tachyon`> hrm, a dyskette, somewhere to store your bites
[10:19] <ShiftPlusOne> tapout, ask TAFB about it, I don't use iozone. I just pasted the command he gave and he generated the chart.

[12:29] <SixtyFold> on my 50" tv 1366x768 resolution you can read just fine from 10 feet away, i dont like to do it, but you definitely can and if i read comics, id probably do it for that since its not exactly 1,000 words

[12:30] <Hoerie> I guess it's a question of trying it out

[12:31] <SixtyFold> well, it's a computer, you can always drop the resolution to 720p ofc
[12:31] <Hoerie> but then I would need to scroll :-(

[13:39] <TLoFP> in all of your guys infinite wisdom, do you think it is possible to rewrite the broadcom driver for SPI to allow the use of all GPIO for SS pins ?
[13:40] <gordonDrogon> yes, it's possible.
[13:40] <TLoFP> good, ill give it a shot then : P
[13:41] <TLoFP> its that or redesign hardware which is already build :(
[13:41] <gordonDrogon> However the existing CE pins are part of the hardware driver, so the get toggled automatically when you kick off a SPI oprtation.
[13:41] <TLoFP> right
[13:41] <gordonDrogon> you just need to wrap the transactions with equivalent toggles of your own gpio pins.
[13:41] <TLoFP> gordonDrogon: I am talking about modefing the bcm2835 driver so that that does NOT happen

[13:48] <mgottschlag> Brianetta: you might want a resistor inbetween so that it doesn't release smoke when you accidently configure both as output
[13:48] <mgottschlag> or do you mean software side connection, without external parts?
[13:49] <mgottschlag> in that case, you should rather use a watchdog timer
[13:49] <TLoFP> gordonDrogon: no but 7 of them put together sample that fast
[13:49] <Brianetta> Well, I'm thinking a simple way to get one Pi to reset another Pi
[13:49] <Brianetta> assuming that the target Pi has reset headers added
[13:49] <gordonDrogon> Brianetta, if you want one Pi to reset another Pi, then yes - but you only need 1 Pi on the resetting Pi to go to the reset pin on the other Pi (plus ground)

[14:40] <mdik> man, do i feel leet now (:
[14:41] <Brianetta> ShiftPlusOne: I didn't - my client sends anything id doesn't understand to the server as a QUOTE. I kind of assumed they all did that...
[14:41] <ShiftPlusOne> ah
[14:42] <Brianetta> Still, now I'm better educated
[14:43] <pronto> http://raspberry.bagels.xxx/temp.png past few days of my Pi CPU temp (the numbers on the bottom mean nothing...gnuplot is confusing kinda)
[14:44] <nirox> uh, didnt know they started using .xxx tld
[14:44] <egrouse> yep
[14:47] <gordonDrogon> eek. .xxx's are expensive.
[14:47] * af1 (~af1@146.90.222.120) has joined #raspberrypi
[14:48] <pronto> nirox: they been out for about 2.5 years now or so

[14:48] <gordonDrogon> ?160 for a 2-year registration.... think I'll leave it..

[14:49] * tubadaz (~quassel@pdpc/supporter/student/tubadaz) has joined #raspberrypi
[14:50] <Jck_true> 13USD each for my 4 domains I think
[14:51] <Jck_true> had to cancel my .info domain - GoDaddy suddenly started to get expensive after the first year or so :D
[14:51] <pronto> <insert required comment about how horrible godaddy is>
[14:53] <Jck_true> pronto: They are horrible... Absolutly... I only discovered later i couldn't close my account - every guide just reffered to how i could disable marketing emails from them

[14:53] <pronto> Jck_true: who did you switch to?
[14:53] <pronto> i personally use namecheap
[14:54] <Jck_true> pronto: And 2 weeks after I cancelled - They gave me "%20 off if you come back"
[14:54] <Jck_true> pronto: I got them all at my local registor now (for .dk danish domains)
[14:54] <Armand> I need to move my domain reg.. I just started work with a web-services provider. :)
[14:55] <Jck_true> Someone really needs to create a simple no fuzz domain reseller
[14:55] <pronto> Jck_true: i heard gandi.net is pretty good
[14:55] <Jck_true> And they can look at VPS sellers
[14:55] <pronto> http://en.gandi.net/
[14:55] <Jck_true> On how to run their stuff
[14:56] <Armand> Jck_true, we do all that.. domain reg, VPS, cloud services.
[14:56] <Jck_true> Armand: From a simple interface? Prefferably with an API?
[14:57] <Armand> https://www.tsohost.com/
[14:57] <Jck_true> pronto: They look good! .dk and .re domains <3
[14:57] <Armand> Simple is a matter of opinion.. ;)
[14:57] <Armand> I've not used the services as a client yet.
[14:57] <pronto> Jck_true: when ever i see .dk i think of tha t horrible .tk (i think?) that did free domains, but only via some weird iframe thing
[14:58] <pronto> Armand: expect incoming PM
[14:58] <Armand> Sure
[14:58] <Jck_true> pronto: Danish Tld - Needed for my personal site :)

[14:59] * Redex (~Redex@5ac76868.bb.sky.com) has joined #raspberrypi

[14:59] <megaproxy> we sell .com
[14:59] <megaproxy> and can probably sell .re
[14:59] <Armand> ^ :)
[14:59] <megaproxy> leme check
[14:59] <gordonDrogon> I use a bunch called totalregistrations.co.uk although I'm considering migrating to portfast.co.uk for domains.
[15:00] <megaproxy> Jck_true: looks like we probably can do re domains

[15:01] <Jck_true> pronto: Thanks for the link through - Gandi looks very tempting
[15:01] <Armand> gordonDrogon, dare I ask, why?
[15:02] <pronto> Jck_true: i've never used them, but a few of my friends do. and they've had zero complants that i know of
[15:03] <Jck_true> I was a customer with linode VPS till i got my first raspberry - They were expensive - But their homepage didn't have ads, they had actual life staff that wasn't outsourced indians, they had a well designed dashboard etc etc
[15:04] <ShiftPlusOne> Not to mention their uptime is great.
[15:04] <gordonDrogon> Armand, well - what if you decide they don't like you & fire you ...
[15:04] <ShiftPlusOne> In all my time with them, they only forced a reboot once and let me know way in advance.
[15:04] <gordonDrogon> Armand, worst case scenario....
[15:05] <gordonDrogon> Armand, and just the general keeping work & play separate.
[15:05] <af1> so how many of you guys have a study or *manspace*
[15:05] <gordonDrogon> I have an office.
[15:05] <RaTTuS|BIG> I have a shed
[15:05] <af1> i have to put up with using the rpi on the tv when no-one wants to watch it
[15:05] <Armand> gordonDrogon, if that's the case, which I'm sure it's not.. I'm sure they will remain professional. :)
[15:05] <af1> shed is too cold as is loft!
[15:06] <megaproxy> we will
[15:06] <megaproxy> well, i wont
[15:06] <Jck_true> ShiftPlusOne: I had a "accident" with a rogue script that caused my server to get flagged - even in that case - They wrote me an email - Suspending network to my box - and let me stop the job
[15:06] <megaproxy> ill point your domains to naughty things
[15:06] <megaproxy> muahah
[15:06] <gordonDrogon> right. spot of lunch time.
[15:07] <IT_Sean> af1: my apartment is my manspace
[15:07] <Jck_true> megaproxy: Well the 2-3 visitors we get a month won't really care :D
[15:07] * ShiftPlusOne wonders if registering a domain with megaproxy was a good idea D=

[15:08] <megaproxy> gets a fair few hits too...
[15:08] <megaproxy> but ive not done a show in aaaaaaaages
[15:09] <Jck_true> Weird how your old useless junk is what people link to - and the new stuff you make doesn't get picked up
[15:09] <Jck_true> I made a google chart back in 2009 with app compatability for a jailbroken iphone... And I'm still getting hits...
[15:10] <Jck_true> Even if it's been outdated for half a 4 years
[15:10] <IT_Sean> af1: You can pick up an inexpensive television, you know, if you cannot get enough Pi time.
[15:10] <af1> i have a monitor and a desk and everything needed
[15:10] <af1> but no space
[15:11] <IT_Sean> oO
[15:11] <af1> 5 bed house and no space
[15:11] <IT_Sean> It's the size of a credit card...
[15:11] <IT_Sean> And an LCD TV is thin...
[15:11] <af1> to have somewhere to set it up

[16:18] <egrouse> nope
[16:18] <SwK> in theory no
[16:18] <egrouse> shouldnt do
[16:19] <IT_Sean> installing xbmc on your Pi?

[16:20] <lucasorion> I've been having issues with permissions, but seemed to resolve them last night by mounting my NAS as the sickbeard user
[16:20] <lucasorion> that fstab line is tricky
[16:20] <lucasorion> I threw everything but the kitchen sink at it trying to resolve this
[16:21] <SwK> IT_Sean: how hard was getting that on gen1 ATV?
[16:21] <lucasorion> "/etc/fstab"
[16:21] <IT_Sean> SwK: it was very easy.
[16:21] <IT_Sean> It installs from a USB thumbdrive.
[16:21] <SwK> oh kool
[16:21] <IT_Sean> Takes all of half an hour, including download time.
[16:22] <SwK> imo apple screwed up dropping local storage from the ATV
[16:22] <IT_Sean> What took longer was cracking the thing open to swap the wifi card out with a better graphics card, to enable 1080 output
[16:22] <SwK> lol
[16:22] <IT_Sean> But even that i can do in my sleep.
[16:22] <lucasorion> any of you figure out ways to minimize power usage with storage when you aren't going to be using it? I have a 3T usb movie drive that I don't want spinning all day and night
[16:23] <SwK> wait? swaping for grafix card? mini-pci?
[16:23] <IT_Sean> It's a pretty sweet rig. I boot off the internal HDD, but i keep my emdia on an external 500 gig (quickly running out of space on it, may need to upgrade soonish).

[16:48] <DeliriumTremens> ah, neither of those help me any
[16:49] <Torikun> ah ok
[16:49] <DeliriumTremens> the case would have been marginally cheaper than the one i bought today
[16:49] <Torikun> Yeah I liked those prices!
[16:49] <DeliriumTremens> i already have a 5V supply and 4GB card at home i can use
[16:49] <linuxstb> frikinz: Perhaps you also need to update the firmware with rpi-update

[18:19] <ShiftPlusOne> jeffszusz, you could just use a 5v tolerant buffer

[18:21] * bertrik (~quassel@rockbox/developer/bertrik) has joined #raspberrypi
[18:22] <ShiftPlusOne> I think the 245 is bidirectional so you can use it for input and output, while the 244 can only be one or the other. I don't know too much about this myself though

[18:25] <ShiftPlusOne> But I guess that wasn't really your question though

[18:29] <jeffszusz> yeah
[18:29] <jeffszusz> lol
[18:29] <ShiftPlusOne> Don't mean to push you towards anything, but designing your own would be a great way to learn those things. I'll shut up now though.
[18:29] <IT_Sean> ^ wot 'e said
[18:29] * _cheney (~cheney@nat.sierrabravo.net) has left #raspberrypi
[18:30] <Uthark> Do you have any background in electronics?
[18:30] <ShiftPlusOne> jeffszusz, for blinking LEDs and such - https://projects.drogon.net/raspberry-pi/gpio-examples/tux-crossing/
[18:30] <jeffszusz> well, experimenting and making mistakes is not something i want to do when the risk is burning out my pi ;)
[18:30] <swart> jeffszusz: look at the tutorials on Gordon Henderson's site
[18:30] <ShiftPlusOne> https://projects.drogon.net/raspberry-pi/gpio-examples/tux-crossing/gpio-examples-1-a-single-led/
[18:30] <jeffszusz> and no, no background on electronics
[18:30] <swart> jeffszusz: you will make mistakes. it's not a bad thing :)
[18:30] <swart> that's how learning happens
[18:31] <IT_Sean> indeed
[18:31] <jeffszusz> well. highschool electronics course. ohms law and made some blinkenlights stuff. I remember little
[18:31] <ShiftPlusOne> swart, I think the bad thing that he's worried about is the pi burning
[18:31] <swart> I picked up a pi cobbler from adafruit and assembled it incorrectly. twice
[18:31] <ShiftPlusOne> not the mistake itself
[18:31] <jeffszusz> swart: i've no problem making mistakes; just not on something that is supposed to protect my pi from my mistakes
[18:31] <jeffszusz> lol
[18:31] <swart> starting with arduino is maybe a bit easier.
[18:31] <swart> maybe more forgiving
[18:31] <IT_Sean> If nobody ever made mistakes, we wouldn't have Gorilla Glass, kevlar, nuclear energy, or moisture-wicking pants.
[18:32] <swart> so this week I learned how to desolder
[18:32] <jeffszusz> probably but i already have an RPi
[18:32] <ShiftPlusOne> to be fair, Gorilla Glass is kind of pants.
[18:32] <swart> got some blisters. now I'm less inclined to repeat my errors
[18:32] <Uthark> jeffszusz: You can follow those tutorials. The blinking light is easy and safe
[18:32] <swart> just be careful not to short anything out
[18:32] <swart> don't do anything with motors yet :)
[18:32] <IT_Sean> ShiftPlusOne: Gorilla Glass is awesome! My 1st gen iPad has not a single scratch!
[18:33] <jeffszusz> >.< that's what i'm worried about. i'm likely to short something out if left to my own devices
[18:33] <IT_Sean> And it's invention was a complete accident. So, it was good for the point i was making.
[18:33] <IT_Sean> jeffszusz: just doublecheck your connections before you power the Pi on, and you will be fine
[18:33] <swart> well an LED is like a short circuit, so it always needs to have a small resistor in series
[18:33] <ShiftPlusOne> IT_Sean, I don't have personal experience with it, but I have seen it crack due to fairly small drops.
[18:33] <swart> if you do that you'll be fine :)

[18:48] <raspberrynewbie> hello everyone
[18:48] <swart> yeah https://projects.drogon.net/raspberry-pi/wiringpi/ is a similar library to what the arduino has
[18:48] <swart> it will let you control leds and relays in the same way
[18:48] <bertrik> I think I've seen a few circuits on how to interface with flashes and cameras, some kind of opto-triac IIRC
[18:49] <steve_rox> i can touch 2 wires together and cam takes shot
[18:49] <swart> but relays have back-voltage, so you might need some protection

[18:49] <gordonjcp> you'd need a transistor, a couple of resistors and a diode
[18:49] <swart> yeah that sounds safer :)
[18:49] <gordonjcp> important: the diode goes *backwards* across the relay coil
[18:49] <IT_Sean> o_O
[18:49] <gordonjcp> with the cathode to positive
[18:49] <tonsit> to protect the pi i take it?
[18:49] <gordonjcp> there are a couple of million examples on the internet ;-)
[18:50] <gordonjcp> tonsit: yeah
[18:50] <steve_rox> panasonic lumix dmc-fz150
[18:50] <swart> yes the voltage spike can be quite damaging
[18:50] <tonsit> haven't started playing with gpio yet ;)
[18:50] <steve_rox> i used the remote shutter port
[18:50] <gordonjcp> when you turn the relay off, the magnetic field in the coil collapses very quickly
[18:50] <tonsit> so thx guys
[18:50] <gordonjcp> so
[18:50] <raspberrynewbie> i got a problem with my today delivered raspberry pi model B. i especially looked for the components to be compatible with it. but if i connect it with the power the PWR led flashes red. if i insert an SD-card then nothing happens i have tried it with several SD cards but nothing an HDMI output isnt there either. is my Pi broken already?
[18:50] <bertrik> or maybe just an optocoupler
[18:50] <steve_rox> got a cheap remote shutter button and hotwired into it
[18:50] * |Jeroen| (~jeroen@d5153E72C.access.telenet.be) has joined #raspberrypi
[18:50] <swart> raspberrynewbie: you may have incorrectly formatted your SD card
[18:51] <swart> order one from pihut
[18:51] <steve_rox> or format it correctly and save money
[18:51] <gordonjcp> tonsit: although the 5V that energised the relay took a few tens milliseconds to pull the relay in, the field collapses about 100 times faster, and because it's moving through the coil faster you get a short pulse of about 500V
[18:51] <swart> or spend money and support the pi community :)
[18:51] <gordonjcp> my pibow case came today
[18:51] <mgottschlag> raspberrynewbie: okay, probably stupid question, but: did you put the sd card in *first* and then connect power?
[18:52] <raspberrynewbie> i used an image and put it on the SD-card with 16GB with win32diskimager
[18:52] <raspberrynewbie> mgottschlag i tried both ways
[18:52] <mgottschlag> good then :)
[18:52] <swart> did you check the wiki to see if the card is confirmed to work?
[18:52] <swart> some don't
[18:52] <IT_Sean> the correct order is: [card in] [power on] by the way
[18:52] <raspberrynewbie> yes i especially ordered one that is confirmed to work
[18:53] <gordonjcp> oh speaking of broken Pis
[18:53] <swart> can you see the file system in windows after you copied the disk image over?
[18:53] <gordonjcp> does anyone sell replacement SD card sockets?
[18:53] <raspberrynewbie> @ IT_Sean i know but as it didnt work, i tried it the other way around, but thank you for this information
[18:53] <raspberrynewbie> i'll check
[18:53] <pronto> man, i'm trying to make an init script for wvdial... never really looked at init scripts before... ....that's some insane bash scripting

[18:55] <gordonjcp> pronto: horrible stuff, I'm glad I don't have to work on it any more
[18:56] <jeffszusz> is Raspbian a lot more polished than the arch for rpi?
[18:56] <pronto> is there something better?
[18:56] <gordonjcp> pronto: sadly not
[18:56] <gordonjcp> steve_rox: I did think about that, but I'd like to be able to swap cards ;-)
[18:56] <steve_rox> nah you dont glue the card in
[18:56] <gordonjcp> glue an adaptor in?

[18:57] <gordonjcp> I thought of that too, but I've yet to find a micro-SD card and adaptor that work well
[18:57] <gordonjcp> steve_rox: I don't
[18:57] <steve_rox> oh dear
[18:57] <gordonjcp> I could make something up but it's just going to be easier to replace the socket
[18:57] <steve_rox> if we can find a supplyer
[18:57] <raspberrynewbie> i think i'll go back to square one
[18:58] <angelos> anyone have experience with the xbox 360 controller drivers on the rpi? do they work fine?
[18:58] <raspberrynewbie> i format my SD-Card and put raspbian on it again

[18:59] <tonsit> haha
[18:59] <raspberrynewbie> please stay tuned for more stupidity
[18:59] <steve_rox> ensure card is firmly in too , ive seen others have this issue
[18:59] <tonsit> you could do an sha1 checksum
[18:59] <tonsit> your image might be fine
[19:00] <raspberrynewbie> how to do that checksum on windows?

[20:08] <BCMM> KiltedPi: finnicky as it in doesn't understand all file naming schemes cause that's a hard AI problem
[20:08] <KiltedPi> sticks them on her ipad, and plays them that way
[20:08] <IT_Sean> KiltedPi: you can stream from an xbmc box to an iPad
[20:08] <BCMM> but if you use a crazy one there is a file you can edit to teach it to understand it
[20:09] <BCMM> KiltedPi: basically you put all your films in a folder and tell it that's the films collection, same with tv episodes and music

[20:15] <gordonDrogon> b03tz, you just use the pins with pinMode() and they 'just work' as normal gpio pins.
[20:15] <IT_Sean> 'cause i've been having trouble getting that working
[20:15] <IT_Sean> (I have the year first, 'cause i like my movies sorted by year)
[20:16] <BCMM> IT_Sean: the scraper is responsible for the internet stuff, not actually parsing filenames i think

[20:18] <gordonDrogon> b03tz, just make sure the spi modules aren't loaded - they're not normally though.
[20:19] <BCMM> IT_Sean: i'm thinking about getting one of those; they're a good bit cheaper than standalone freeview tuners aren't they?
[20:19] <IT_Sean> I got mine ages ago.

[20:30] <gordonDrogon> [ill]will, something like minicom is good for simple testing.
[20:30] <Gordio> or in alsa. amixer -q set PCM toggle
[20:30] <[ill]will> thats where im at with it
[20:30] <gordonDrogon> checking..
[20:30] <Gordio> mute and unmute but sund not return
[20:30] <[ill]will> i even tried attach tx and rx together to see if i can cat and echo data, but still nada

[20:31] <gordonDrogon> [ill]will, that will work - tail won't work.
[20:31] <gordonDrogon> [ill]will, easie to set the baudrate too.
[20:32] <[ill]will> yea i tried minicom but i dont know if i was doing something wrong or not

[20:32] <[ill]will> is there some check to see if its in the right mode, i did edit those files so i should be good
[20:33] <gordonDrogon> [ill]will, if you run minicom then use the menus - Control-A to get into them. You can make sure the settings are right - /dev/ttyAMA0 and the baud rate.
[20:34] <Gordio> minicom... picocom - better!
[20:34] <Gordio> :D
[20:35] <gordonDrogon> ?
[20:35] <pronto> errmerrgawrd! it works! init.d script for wvdial! :D http://kpaste.net/cd5d7bd
[20:35] <gordonDrogon> minicom's ok. some people don't like it though...
[20:37] <[ill]will> with minicom running
[20:38] <[ill]will> how can i check
[20:38] <[ill]will> echo "12345677" > /dev/ttyAMA0
[20:38] <[ill]will> or something
[20:38] <gordonDrogon> no
[20:38] <gordonDrogon> that's work work.
[20:38] <gordonDrogon> you could remove the reader and connect the Pi's Tx and Rx together.
[20:38] <gordonDrogon> then type on the terminal... you should see what you're typing.

[21:32] <pothibo> very noob question, I'm no tsure where to ask so bare with me: I have a sainsmart 8 relay module and I want to hook it up to my pi, what kind of connectors I need to connect those 2? (I don't knwo what's it called...)
[21:34] * zoktar (~zoktar@unaffiliated/zoktar) has joined #raspberrypi
[21:34] <mgottschlag> pothibo: you certainly need a level shifter because it is 5V while the pi is 3.3V
[21:35] <mgottschlag> but the connectors, well, those are both standard jumper pin rows, any connector with 0.1" pin spacing would do :)
[21:36] * ChanServ (ChanServ@services.) Quit (*.net *.split)
[21:36] <pothibo> mgottschlag: Hmm ok, I probably misunderstood, but I thought that somehow GPIO could drive 5v
[21:37] <mgottschlag> ah, actually the document says that 3.3V already is interpreted as high voltage
[21:37] <mgottschlag> no, the pi can only output 3.3V, which is far too little for some 5V input signals
[21:37] * ChanServ (ChanServ@services.) has joined #raspberrypi
[21:38] <VetteWork> sainsmart should work with 3.3V of the Pi from what i have researched
[21:38] <pothibo> mgottschlag: ok so I need to level 3.3v to 5v
[21:38] <mgottschlag> but in your case it might just work, you should still probably decouple it
[21:38] <mjr> pothibo, no you don't, as they just said
[21:38] <pothibo> lol
[21:38] * ChanServ (ChanServ@services.) Quit (*.net *.split)
[21:38] <pothibo> I was typing and didn't read what VetteWork wrote sorry
[21:38] <mjr> but you do need to lower the 5V coming in from the sainsmart to 3V3 for the Pi, or you'll fry it
[21:39] <mjr> luckily that's a relatively simple matter of a couple of resistors
[21:39] * pothibo twitches
[21:39] <VetteWork> pothibo, there are a few hits on google about doing what you want. I dont have any bookmarked for quick reference though

[21:39] <pothibo> I saw something with relay sometimes frying the pi cuz of the fireback when switching the relay

[21:40] <gordonjcp> pothibo: do not connect a relay directly to the GPIO pins
[21:41] <gordonjcp> pothibo: and use a diode across the coil
[21:41] <mgottschlag> pothibo: the board already has those diodes btw
[21:41] <pothibo> gordonjcp: ok but doesn't the sainsmart channel already provides diode & protectiong ?

[21:42] <pothibo> that would be done using the shift lever as you mention? Or the relay

[22:20] <mgottschlag> pothibo: the ULN2803 is a chip with 8 transistors usable for something like this
[22:20] <mgottschlag> well, actually 16 transistors, but that's mostly details :)
[22:20] <gordonDrogon> uln2803's are good. make good relay drivers.
[22:20] <swart> why would you use one of those instead of a MOSFET? just convenience?
[22:20] <swart> 8 MOSFETS :)
[22:21] <gordonDrogon> or incandescent bulb drivers: http://unicorn.drogon.net/bulb.jpg
[22:21] <mgottschlag> in this case, 8 normal mosfets certainly are good enough, yeah

[22:22] <gordonDrogon> pothibo, use a uln2803.
[22:23] <gordonDrogon> however the Pi will not power 8 relays directly, you'll need an external power supply.
[22:23] <mgottschlag> btw, the board already has drivers, so he doesn't need that function
[22:23] <gordonDrogon> oh - thought he was building from scratch.
[22:23] <mgottschlag> he only needs a decoupler
[22:23] <pothibo> gordonDrogon: yup, that's what I was saying power the uln2803 directly from my power supply?
[22:23] <gordonDrogon> there are lots of boards on ebay with 8 relays.
[22:23] <pothibo> rofl
[22:24] <gordonDrogon> some of them need 5 volts though.
[22:24] <pothibo> mine does
[22:24] <gordonDrogon> is it one of them ones with opto isolators in-front of the relays?
[22:24] <VetteWork> Python 2 or 3 better?
[22:24] <pothibo> yes
[22:24] <gordonDrogon> yea, they're somewaht challenging for the 3.3v of the Pi.

[23:43] <mdszy> swart, nope, I had a USB Wifi adaptor in it, but I've unplugged it when I started having issues
[23:43] <KiltedPi> so you can knacker it by putting too much power through it

[23:50] <KiltedPi^> Solution to all the worlds problems!
[23:50] <mdszy> KiltedPi^, I've done that. And I have no OK light.
[23:50] <KiltedPi^> "African children starving?" -> Flash SD
[23:50] <mdszy> as in, it doesn't exist on my Pi.
[23:50] * hobo (~hobo@206.87.125.133) has joined #raspberrypi
[23:50] <KiltedPi^> How did you stick the OS on there
[23:51] <mgottschlag> OK = ACT
[23:51] <KiltedPi^> you use win32 diskimager?
[23:51] <Mortvert> Heh.
[23:51] <mdszy> KiltedPi^, dd
[23:51] <Mortvert> Is someone else having that wierd crashing issue?
[23:51] <Mortvert> aka. only pwr light stays on, everything else halts
[23:51] * bertrik (~quassel@rockbox/developer/bertrik) has joined #raspberrypi
[23:51] <Mortvert> (I already returned my PI)
[23:52] <mdszy> brb, dinner
[23:52] <swart> I had that problem when I bought mine
[23:52] <flufmnstr> Mortvert mine seems to do that after a few days of leaving it running
[23:52] <KiltedPi^> Pi is fine then
[23:52] <swart> then I ordered an SD card from pihut, and it worked
[23:52] <KiltedPi^> PWR light on means you haven't bricked your pi yet
[23:52] <swart> so I assume I was flashing the card wrong
[23:52] <flufmnstr> the wifi and power led stay on but the whole thing is locked up
[23:52] <flufmnstr> i just power cycle it and its fine again
[23:52] <KiltedPi^> Possibly swart
[23:52] <Mortvert> KiltedPi^ - i tried 3 different SD cards, 3 different power sources
[23:53] <Mortvert> and booting with/without ethernet
[23:53] <KiltedPi^> Its a software thing
[23:53] <Mortvert> with/without RCA
[23:53] <swart> if you have ram errors things could freeze unexpectedly
[23:53] <KiltedPi^> PWR light on, OK off = software problem
[23:53] <mgottschlag> KiltedPi^: isn't the power led wired directly to the 5v rail?
[23:53] <Mortvert> mgottschlag - i'm 90% sure it is.
[23:53] <mgottschlag> there could be lots of possibilities (bad/fried chip) where the led would still be on
[23:53] <Mortvert> since even without SD it lights up, no?

[23:53] <KiltedPi^> The OS
[23:54] <KiltedPi^> what OS did you load?
[23:54] <KiltedPi^> Raspbian?
[23:54] <Mortvert> raspbian
[23:54] <Mortvert> It was fun, i managed to do voltage read when it went down
[23:54] <KiltedPi^> Download a later image. Flash card.
[23:54] <mgottschlag> without SD the ROM bootloader is still running, but it doesn't touch any LED :)
[23:54] <Mortvert> jumped from 4.85v to 5.10
[23:54] <Mortvert> KiltedPi^ - imagine that i tried everything
[23:54] <hobo> bad power?
[23:54] <KiltedPi^> mgott, whats the most likely tho?
[23:54] <Mortvert> hobo - two out of three power sources were reccomended.
[23:55] <KiltedPi^> Eliminate the most likely first :/
[23:55] <hobo> what do you have plugged into usb
[23:55] <Mortvert> if i count my laptop, 2 out of 4
[23:55] <KiltedPi^> Basically pray its not hardware related
[23:55] <Mortvert> hobo - initially - nothing
[23:55] <KiltedPi^> You can DO something about the OS
[23:55] <Mortvert> It just went down without any watning
[23:55] <hobo> sounds like a broken unit then?

[23:55] <Mortvert> It sometimes managed to die during boot
[23:55] <Mortvert> sometimes i had to put a little load on CPU
[23:55] <swart> sounds like bad memory
[23:56] <swart> I think there are some diagnostics you can run
[23:56] * Mortvert shrugs
[23:56] <KiltedPi^> bummer
[23:56] <swart> if you can at least boot
[23:56] <KiltedPi^> :(
[23:56] <KiltedPi^> Just remind yourself its not a 500 quid laptop you smoked!
[23:56] <swart> exactly
[23:56] <KiltedPi^> and its a 25 quid pi!
[23:56] <flufmnstr> is there a memtest for the pi?

[23:56] <KiltedPi^> I can finally muck around with-

[23:56] <KiltedPi^> oh, was it a model A?

[23:56] <palango> I can hear sound output with "aplay test.wav -D plug:front" but don't get naything without the '-D plug:front' argument. What do I need to put into the asound.conf file to default to that?
[23:57] <KiltedPi^> There was something on forums.

[23:57] <Mortvert> Ew, shooo
[23:57] <flufmnstr> lol
[23:57] <KiltedPi^> All new to me!
[23:57] <KiltedPi^> :)
[23:58] <KiltedPi^> Has anyone else seen these red chinese pi's!
[23:58] <Joeboy> Mortvert: yes it is! In europe at least.
[23:58] * KiltedPi^ WANTS
[23:58] <Mortvert> Joeboy - hm?
[23:58] <KiltedPi^> The model A will be great for robotics
[23:58] <KiltedPi^> power slimmed pis
[23:58] <flufmnstr> KiltedPi^ yes. and i want one so bad!
[23:58] <KiltedPi^> I don't know why I want one.
[23:58] <Joeboy> They're available in the UK from farnell / rs
[23:58] <flufmnstr> almost willing to switch to communism to get one
[23:58] <KiltedPi^> I just know I do
[23:58] <KiltedPi^> :)
[23:58] <Mortvert> Joeboy - No, version A isn't out >_>
[23:59] <KiltedPi^> You know it comrade
[23:59] <Joeboy> Mortvert: Ive got two in my shopping cart
[23:59] <Mortvert> Joeboy - derp, ignore me, didn't look on main page
[23:59] <KiltedPi^> are they 512 MB?
[23:59] <Joeboy> admittedly not in my hand
[23:59] <Joeboy> nope, 256 I believe
[23:59] * zhvtar (~zhvtar@unaffiliated/zhvtar) has joined #raspberrypi
[23:59] <KiltedPi^> or like -
[23:59] <Mortvert> Joeboy - don't order from RS D:
[23:59] <KiltedPi^> neat
[23:59] <Mortvert> They have bad luck lately
[23:59] <Mortvert> (quite a big bad batch was sent out)
