[0:04] <Injunire> just bought a pi today, then find out the SD card I have is shot...
[0:04] <ngc0202> I had some SD card issues as well
[0:06] <Injunire> when I plug the sd card into the reader in my laptop it becomes slow and anytime you try and access the sd card it locks up the program

[0:34] <B0101> Hi, does anyone know of a good text editor for the pi?
[0:35] <chupacabra> vi
[0:35] <tomw889> graphical or command line?
[0:35] <B0101> graphical
[0:35] <tzarc> gvim
[0:35] * Bl1tter (~a@39.Red-88-9-198.dynamicIP.rima-tde.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:36] <zeBeard> vim !
[0:36] <zeBeard> oh, graphical
[0:36] <squirtsmacintosh> stick to console vim
[0:36] <zeBeard> idd, console vim!
[0:36] <zeBeard> noone needs a gui
[0:36] <tzarc> ^this
[0:37] <squirtsmacintosh> ^seconded
[0:37] * squirtsmacintosh would marry vim if people weren't such prudes
[0:37] <squirtsmacintosh> YOU DONT UNDERSTAND OUR LOVE
[0:38] <tzarc> I started using it about 6mo ago, because I got sick of eclipse at work
[0:38] <zeBeard> eclipse!
[0:38] * zeBeard gasps
[0:38] <tzarc> steep learning curve, but omg, best decision ever
[0:38] <squirtsmacintosh> There is a lot of eclipse at my work but it is loathed
[0:38] * chupacabra never heard of eclipse
[0:38] <af1> well after gay marriage gets pushed through we can work on pushing through the marriage of code
[0:38] <tzarc> well the other offices use slickedit
[0:39] <tzarc> but IT neglected to buy licenses for our office
[0:39] <squirtsmacintosh> We have a lot of users of everything, vim, emacs are the biggest
[0:39] <tzarc> and we were left on our own because they don't care
[0:39] <squirtsmacintosh> Then eclipse and sublime
[0:39] <zeBeard> I like emacs aswell
[0:39] <squirtsmacintosh> and then a bunch of other random java ones like intellij
[0:40] <squirtsmacintosh> tzarc: Get yourself a copy of Practical Vim
[0:40] <chupacabra> how much overhead does one need to edit text?? lol
[0:40] <tzarc> oh I don't know how to read
[0:40] <squirtsmacintosh> and write your own config, don't use one of these "frameworks"
[0:40] <tzarc> and yeah I already have written my own conf
[0:40] <squirtsmacintosh> chupacabra: see above about not understanding
[0:41] <chupacabra> I saw
[0:41] <squirtsmacintosh> your vimrc is never done
[0:41] <chupacabra> ever
[0:41] <tzarc> something that's become quite obvious
[0:41] <tzarc> lol
[0:41] <tzarc> really need to finish up getting C++ competion working
[0:42] <squirtsmacintosh> Mine has gotten a bit big https://github.com/dbuckwalter/vim_config

[0:43] <squirtsmacintosh> I did that before
[0:43] <tzarc> yeah I can see
[0:43] <squirtsmacintosh> It ended up being a pain in the ass
[0:43] <squirtsmacintosh> bunch of 1 line files
[0:43] <tzarc> lol, fair enough

[0:48] <chupacabra> sick
[0:48] <squirtsmacintosh> tzarc: why?
[0:48] <tzarc> considering I'm using *nixes more often than not nowadays, it's time
[0:48] * Hoerie (Hoerie@ip24-182-173-82.adsl2.static.versatel.nl) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:48] <squirtsmacintosh> I like bash a good bit
[0:49] <tzarc> more control over args
[0:49] <tzarc> mostly
[0:50] <tzarc> gonna have to build it from source at work though, stupid ancient distro

[0:57] <tzarc> an opensuse well past its used by date
[0:58] <ztag100> tzarc: Y U NO UPDATE?
[0:58] <tzarc> tried, we have constraints on our own software that make it incompatible

[1:03] * tensory (~tensory@66.92.49.120) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:03] <tensory> Can someone tell me what "BCM" means when calling GPIO.setmode(GPIO.BCM)?
[1:04] * Phosphate| (~james@c-71-224-156-93.hsd1.pa.comcast.net) Quit (Read error: Operation timed out)
[1:04] <tzarc> bcm is usually broadcom's abbreviation, but in the context of the gpio, I have no idea
[1:05] * zeBeard (~zeBeard@h127n5-n-d4.ias.bredband.telia.com) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[1:05] <nopslide> # to change to BCM GPIO numbering
[1:05] <nopslide> GPIO.setmode(GPIO.BCM)
[1:06] <nopslide> it is specific to broadcom afaik
[1:06] * granjero (~juan@190.55.59.106) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:06] <nopslide> "Use the pin numbers from the ribbon cable board"
[1:06] <mgottschlag> does it change between raspberrypi header pin numbers and peripheral reference gpio pin numbers?
[1:07] <tensory> I see the only other option that the GPIO API understands is GPIO.BOARD
[1:07] <mgottschlag> okay, then that's it
[1:07] * dreamon_ (~dreamon@unaffiliated/dreamon) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:07] <mgottschlag> the peripheral reference document lists the "official" pin numbers from broadcom, but they are different to the pins on the raspberrypi header
[1:07] <tensory> so BCM would be 1-26 and BOARD would be ??? the weird ordering that i see on the pinout?
[1:07] <mgottschlag> (and they are much more than what is exposed on that header)
[1:07] <mgottschlag> probably
[1:07] <tensory> gotcha
[1:08] <tensory> thanks
[1:09] <nopslide> this might help see which ones are not used from the 2835

[1:35] <tensory> my friend here with the RPi and I are having a spirited debate about the need for pull up/down resistors
[1:36] <tensory> can anyone weigh in?
[1:36] <tensory> it seemed to me that I would need to pull up/down a button to connect it to an i/o pin
[1:36] <Viper7> tensory: the pi has programmable pull-up and pull-down resistors built in
[1:37] <tensory> and it just depends on which pin group you're attached to?
[1:38] <tensory> that is, I mean: I see from the detailed pin diagram that some pins are high and some are low by default
[1:38] <tensory> I am thinking of using 22-25
[1:38] <Viper7> nah its per pin
[1:38] <pksato> no, only pin.
[1:38] <tensory> ah
[1:39] * sraue (~stephan@xbmc/staff/sraue) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:39] <pksato> write some simple program... no need, just use default kernel GPIO sysfs.

[1:42] <tensory> can you explain why some tutorials suggest using an outside 10K resistor with a switch and others just connect the switch between ground and the pin?
[1:42] <tensory> he sent me https://projects.drogon.net/raspberry-pi/gpio-examples/tux-crossing/3-more-leds-and-a-button/ and it seems like not how I would have thought it worked
[1:43] <tensory> but I am open to using whatever's built in to the board
[1:43] <UnaClocker> tensory: There's a feature in microcontrollers called an "internal pullup"...
[1:43] <Viper7> i use buttons with just ground / no-contact, and the internal pull-up
[1:44] <Viper7> but i do it in C, not via sysfs
[1:44] <tensory> oh, awesome
[1:44] <tensory> okay
[1:45] <UnaClocker> Holy cow.. That has to be the fastest shipment from China I've ever gotten.. ONE week?!
[1:45] * rolleiflex (~rolleifle@206.71.246.250) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:46] <pksato> some time ago, I tested pull-up/down function, but, no remember if used sysfs or python.
[1:48] <Viper7> bcm2835_gpio_set_pud(uint8_t pin, uint8_t mode) from memory, where mode is BCM2835_GPIO_PUD_OFF/DOWN/UP

[2:03] <GabrialDestruir> As far as I know that 512 revision is the last revision they're doing.
[2:03] <UnaClocker> They NEVER mention these things in advance.. Often, revisions are spotted in the wild before anyone mentions anything.
[2:03] <GabrialDestruir> But they may always decide to just pop another one out.
[2:04] <lost_soul> okay, thanks for the information
[2:05] <UnaClocker> lost_soul: What would you like to see revised?
[2:05] * pizthewiz (~pizthewiz@c-67-188-110-20.hsd1.ca.comcast.net) Quit (Client Quit)
[2:05] <GabrialDestruir> I'd like to see a gigabit ethernet with PoE >.>
[2:05] <GabrialDestruir> But that's just me being picky... xD
[2:05] <UnaClocker> Me, I think the simplest most useful change I'd like to see is a better SD slot.. My SD cards keep bowing outward and or cracking in the middle.
[2:05] <lost_soul> power over ethernet would be awesome
[2:06] * Delboy_ (~openwrt@141-136-251-36.dsl.iskon.hr) Quit (Ping timeout: 264 seconds)
[2:06] <plugwash> mmm combine the foundations fear of the osbourne affect with the seeming inability of of the distributors to keep a secret..........
[2:06] <UnaClocker> Mmm, yeah.. POE would be cool..
[2:06] <lost_soul> as would gigabit, however as I said prior I'm quite happy with what I currently have. But would wait to make another purchase if a revision was in the not so distant future
[2:07] <GabrialDestruir> I want to get a 512 revision I haven't bothered to make the purchase yet.
[2:07] <lost_soul> UnaClocker: they have an awesome adapter for that
[2:07] <UnaClocker> plugwash: They'd certainly have a problem with Osbourne effect, because much like him, they take almost a year from the time they plan something to the time it actually happens.
[2:07] <lost_soul> just got it last week
[2:07] <GabrialDestruir> A PoE adapter or an sdcard adapter?
[2:08] <lost_soul> GabrialDestruir: an adapter to make the full sized sdcard in to a microsd so it will not stick out
[2:08] <plugwash> at some point if the rpf want to remain competitive they will have to do a MAJOR revision
[2:08] <plugwash> with a new SoC
[2:08] <UnaClocker> GabrialDestruir: Well there are definitely SD adapters??? Lets you put a uSD card into the SD slot and not have it stick out past the end of the board at all.
[2:08] <plugwash> but afaict it's likely to be a couple of years before that happens
[2:08] <plugwash> (at the earliest)
[2:09] <UnaClocker> Yeah.. Selling a million units, there's a good chance they're in a good bargaining position to get good prices on a better SoC..
[2:09] <GabrialDestruir> The only way they'd do an SoC revision is if they could get it at the same exact price.
[2:09] <UnaClocker> Though I do like to see the Linux community forced to write more efficient code..
[2:10] <UnaClocker> That's how Moore's law works.. 18 months, double the power, half the price.
[2:10] * shirish (~quassel@unaffiliated/shirish) has joined #raspberrypi
[2:11] * Delboy (~openwrt@141-136-221-143.dsl.iskon.hr) has joined #raspberrypi
[2:11] <GabrialDestruir> True. So it could be possible, but I think as it is they had to pull favors to get the current SoC at the price it is.
[2:11] <plugwash> AIUI they only had to pull those favours because of low volume
[2:12] <lost_soul> I would imagine with a large volume no favors would need to be pulled too
[2:12] <UnaClocker> Yeah, they claim they expected a 10k volume.. At 1million, they're in the same arena as a small cell phone company.
[2:12] <plugwash> They gabled on getting at least 10k volume
[2:12] <plugwash> *gambled
[2:13] <UnaClocker> I totally would have predicted a million from the get go.. And I did, really..
[2:13] <plugwash> had they got less than that they would have lost a lot of money
[2:13] <lost_soul> and the pi's haven't actually been officially put on the market yet have they? I'm pretty sure I read that in an article a while ago.

[2:13] <UnaClocker> lost_soul: They're on the market. Everyone is selliong them (reselling)..
[2:13] <GabrialDestruir> Sure they are... you can buy them directly from RS or Farnell or Newark etc.
[2:14] <GabrialDestruir> Can even get them for double the price on amazon
[2:14] <lost_soul> ok, I stand corrected
[2:14] <Viper7> how about model As ?
[2:14] <UnaClocker> I got my last one from SparkFun.. Adafruit sells them.. That's pretty retail level..
[2:14] <plugwash> UnaClocker, but would you have bet 20 million dollars or so on it?
[2:14] <UnaClocker> plugwash: I'd have run a Kickstarter.
[2:15] <lost_soul> I picked mine up from MCM electronics, however the box said Element14 on it

[2:15] <lost_soul> made an excellent media center system
[2:16] <Viper7> re the earlier discussion
[2:16] <UnaClocker> Yeah, two of my Pi (old 256mb units) are RaspBMC units hooked to TV's in my house. :)
[2:16] <plugwash> AIUI the original plan was to do a release for early adoptors, devs etc first and then follow that up with an education release when the hardware/software was ready for it
[2:16] <GabrialDestruir> Actually a Kickstarter would have been the best way for them to do it.
[2:16] * IT_Sean (~Ult_Ubunt@applefritter/IRCStaff/UltimateMacUser1) Quit (Quit: Quit)
[2:16] <plugwash> but then the early adoptor/developer release went viral
[2:16] <GabrialDestruir> I'm not sure it would have went any smoother....
[2:16] <Viper7> apparently the bcm2835 has a hardware fft engine, but the docs for it werent given to the RPi team
[2:17] <Viper7> i could really use that engine >.<
[2:17] <lost_soul> UnaClocker: using openelec on mine, will get one more to have as a second media center system for bedroom and another to play with... I have seen people doing some really neat things with them.
[2:17] <plugwash> Also I think their education plans changed from a "big bang" education release to more of a slow buildup working with teachers on a small scale to get things gradually fleshed out
[2:17] <UnaClocker> GabrialDestruir: If they had pre-sales, cash in hand, for 300k units, things could have gone quite smooth..
[2:17] <plugwash> and what if they had made 300K units and then found a crippling problem
[2:17] <plugwash> and had no cash to replace them
[2:18] <GabrialDestruir> That's true... it could have gone smoother.
[2:18] <plugwash> ramping up too fast can be a very risky buisiness
[2:18] <GabrialDestruir> That happened as it was plugwash... xD
[2:18] <UnaClocker> They'd already developed the board, they had the working PCB like 6 months before they went on sale.
[2:18] * pizthewiz (~pizthewiz@c-67-188-110-20.hsd1.ca.comcast.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[2:18] <GabrialDestruir> They got like the first 10,000 and the ethernet was broken
[2:18] <GabrialDestruir> they ended up having to send them back or something.
[2:18] * Megaf (~Megaf@unaffiliated/megaf) Quit (Ping timeout: 255 seconds)
[2:18] <UnaClocker> hehe, yeah, that was because of the chinese mfgr swapping parts on them.

[2:19] <sadbox> It's amazing what kinds of bugs people find when you have 100k people looking at something
[2:19] <Viper-7> apparently it can be done on the gpu, but theres no software available for it, just libraries, so it means custom code - and ugh
[2:20] * yehnan (~yehnan@36-231-9-67.dynamic-ip.hinet.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[2:20] <plugwash> GabrialDestruir, right lukilly it passed that CE testing with only minor software tweaks but imagine it hadn't
[2:21] <plugwash> that could well have been $300K down the drain
[2:21] <plugwash> maybe more (I dunno how much profit there is in a Pi but i'm guessing not much)
[2:21] <GabrialDestruir> If they had $300k and backed that with whatever they were planning to use originally the issues would have still recovered....
[2:22] <GabrialDestruir> Though I have to admit.... I want a China Red Pi >.>

[2:23] <plugwash> I suspect they will show up on ebay sooner or later
[2:23] <GabrialDestruir> Possibly...
[2:23] <GabrialDestruir> I wonder how much trouble I could get for owning one of those....
[2:24] <lost_soul> why would you get in any trouble?
[2:24] <GabrialDestruir> or if ownership isn't illegal... just importing >.>
[2:24] <lost_soul> sorry if I sound dense, I've just never heard of them until now
[2:24] <plugwash> My understanding is that as long as you don't try to sell it as a finished product you are ok
[2:24] <GabrialDestruir> Importing a China Red Pi into EU or the USA is illegal because they don't have CE testing done on them.

[2:26] <dRbiG> not having fcc certification seems to be more of a real problem

[2:30] <GabrialDestruir> but the demand for them was so great they for some reason had to get testing.
[2:31] <plugwash> AIUI the problem was that given the demographics of their customer base and the way it hadn't been promoted they didn't think they could get away with saying it wasn't a finished product

[4:22] <ztag100> nineteen67comet, that could be influenced by the slow connection my pi has though
[4:22] <nineteen67comet> isn't acting like ti stuck ..
[4:22] <ztag100> that last message was for Torikun not nineteen67comet
[4:22] <nineteen67comet> nope, I can ping it, but it doesn't connect ..
[4:24] <ztag100> n???ineteen67comet: try what I wrote
[4:24] <nineteen67comet> dang .. not impressed with raspbmc .. wifi worked hunky doory (after a load of work) in the regular Wheezy ..
[4:25] <nineteen67comet> ztag100: add it to startup? .. I can't remember what file Debian uses for start ups (Gentoo is's rc-update) ..

[4:48] <ztag100> NetSurf
[4:48] <Torikun> nice

[4:51] <ztag100> JakeSays, yes, but extremely slowly
[4:51] <Torikun> and youtube
[4:52] <JakeSays> ztag100: heh. i imagine so
[4:52] <JakeSays> is it the full chromium?
[4:52] <nineteen67comet> JakeSays: It's not horrible, but it also doesn't play YouTube, can't install Flash and doesn't handle HTML5 .. someday ..
[4:52] <JakeSays> that would be a bit much
[4:52] <Torikun> there is an html 5 parser module
[4:52] <Torikun> i seen on their site
[4:52] <JakeSays> nineteen67comet: what cant handle html5?
[4:53] <ztag100> though, it might just be that slow because I have the OG raspberry pi with only 256 MB of RAM
[4:53] <Tickle> nineteen67comet: Sounds like Internet Explorer
[4:53] <JakeSays> and not installing flash isn't an issue with chromium.
[4:53] <JakeSays> iirc adobe hasn't released a pi port
[4:54] <JakeSays> Torikun: which site are you talking about?
[4:54] <Torikun> adobe quit supporting arm awhile ago
[4:54] <Torikun> netsurf home page about section JakeSays
[4:54] <JakeSays> ah ok
[4:54] <ztag100> JakeSays, it doesn't have support for JS, though it can use the html version of gmail
[4:55] <Torikun> oh nice
[4:55] <JakeSays> ztag100: what doesnt? chromium?
[4:55] <ztag100> netsurf
[4:55] <JakeSays> oh
[4:55] <JakeSays> lol

[4:57] <Torikun> yup
[4:57] <pronto> that sounds horribad
[4:57] <squirtsmacintosh> even chrome? Chrome would be the worst
[4:57] <pronto> ssh -X sucks
[4:57] <ztag100> It would be
[4:57] <squirtsmacintosh> Memory hog
[4:57] <pronto> it works in a pinch...but omg , only last ditch effort
[4:57] <JakeSays> not sure what the significance of -X is
[4:57] <Torikun> pi sucks for anything graphical lol
[4:58] <pronto> JakeSays: x11 fowarding
[4:58] <JakeSays> pronto: ah ok
[4:58] <JakeSays> i use vnc
[4:58] <JakeSays> which works well enough
[4:58] <nineteen67comet> JakeSays: -C is also decent for compressing the data back and forth ..
[4:58] <pronto> yeah, stick with that...
[4:58] <JakeSays> the only time i use a GUI is when i want to edit a bunch of config files.
[4:58] <pronto> ssh -X is gonna be laggy on a gbit lan even
[4:59] <ztag100> Torikun: it doesn't look like the official MC came out
[4:59] <pronto> JakeSays: learn vim :D

[4:59] <JakeSays> pronto: i've managed to survive 31 years as a developer w/o learning vi. i hope to die that way. lol
[4:59] <Torikun> good work JakeSays
[4:59] <Torikun> nano ftw!
[4:59] <pronto> JakeSays: btw vi is NOT vim
[5:00] <pronto> and vim is NOT vi
[5:00] <JakeSays> vi*
[5:00] <Torikun> lol
[5:00] <pronto> they're much differnet
[5:00] <JakeSays> Torikun: yeah nano isnt bad
[5:00] <pronto> vim is based on vi
[5:00] <pronto> but..as the name implies, improved :D
[5:00] <JakeSays> pronto: do they both require cryptic key sequences to get anything done?
[5:00] <Torikun> ahahahahah
[5:00] <pronto> JakeSays: but some of us are smart enough to learn them, and make our editors do tasks for us :D

[6:19] <SpeedEvil> you sign up for a Usenet server, or find a free, limited one.
[6:19] <home> 5.1V is the magic number
[6:19] <home> for me to not have any latency issues
[6:19] <home> fml
[6:20] <SpeedEvil> you point the client of your choice at it
[6:20] <home> I swear I was using that adapter all this time..
[6:20] <home> anyway...someone help me make a portable power solution for my rpi
[6:21] <Torikun> i never used usenet before
[6:21] <Torikun> dunno how to get started
[6:21] <Torikun> or what to use
[6:21] <Torikun> it was popular when I started using the net in 1995
[6:22] <axion> pay a good service provider and get a software client

[6:23] <home> SpeedEvil: how fast is the delivery?
[6:23] <SpeedEvil> multimedia
[6:23] <axion> anything and everything. usenet is bigger and older than http
[6:23] <SpeedEvil> home: a couple of days in my case
[6:23] <Torikun> oh
[6:23] <axion> most stuff is first propagated through usenet
[6:23] <home> how many days is a couple?
[6:23] <home> 3?
[6:23] <Torikun> so like bit torrent
[6:23] <home> 5?
[6:23] <Torikun> lol
[6:24] <Torikun> so how do you access it
[6:24] <Torikun> http://www.freeusenetnews.com/
[6:24] <Torikun> that lists the servers
[6:24] <SpeedEvil> home: I wasn't quite being serious, that will power a pi for over a month
[6:24] <SpeedEvil> home: and is only portable if you're into weightlifting
[6:24] <axion> except decentralized, uneditable, faster, and more security
[6:25] <home> lool
[6:25] <SpeedEvil> home: it is however, what's powering my pi.
[6:25] <axion> Torikun: i recommend usenetserver.com or astraweb.com
[6:25] <axion> giganews is popular, but a bit expensive too
[6:25] <Torikun> they all are pay =(
[6:26] <SpeedEvil> noon binary is cheaper
[6:26] <axion> of course. the only way to get any joy out of usenet is to subscribe
[6:26] <axion> i pay $40/3 months
[6:26] <Torikun> I am trying binreader now
[6:26] <Torikun> looks free
[6:26] <axion> cheaper is not better as far as usenet...by far
[6:27] <axion> the free ones are not worth your time for binary content either
[6:28] <Torikun> i connect to one and noting is ther
[6:28] <Torikun> elol
[6:29] <Torikun> i dont get this usenet
[6:29] <home> lol
[6:29] <home> I have access to a vps
[6:29] <axion> with a paid usenet subscription you can download anything as fast as your connection will allow, with about 950 days backwards posts, with more than 10TB posted daily
[6:29] <home> come AT ME
[6:30] <Torikun> how safe are they
[6:30] <Torikun> from getting in jail
[6:31] <axion> usenet providers do not log downloads, only uploads. the govt would have to ask for a record of who downloaded what, and they would be like sorry, we dont log that. but this ip uploaded it
[6:31] <Torikun> usenetserver ? is a safe on to register?
[6:31] <axion> been a member for 10 years there
[6:31] <axion> id say yes
[6:32] <Torikun> want to give me a referral axion
[6:32] <Torikun> it's asking for one =)
[6:33] <Torikun> axion: ?
[6:34] <axion> uhh what?

[6:47] <_genuser_> raspberrypi.rsdelivers.com, ordering from US. newark.com says 168 expected feb 18th.
[6:47] <yeboot> I'm trying to get my raspberry pi to play video through hdmi
[6:48] <yeboot> without having to have X11 runningo n it

[6:49] <home> did they release the A version?
[6:50] <ztag100> yeboot: you want to play video, without X?
[6:51] <yeboot> ztag100 yes
[6:51] <axion> both omxplayer and xbmc, the only hardware-accelerated players, use openmax to talk to dispmanx, the videocore gpu's own window manager that does not need X
[6:51] <SpeedEvil> home: yes
[6:52] <home> how much CAD dollars is it
[6:52] <home> and how much RAM?
[6:52] <SpeedEvil> 256
[6:53] <SpeedEvil> it's ??19.50 IIRC in 100s
[6:53] <yeboot> why are gertboards so expensive
[6:54] <warrenvsmith> they arent
[6:54] <yeboot> when I was looking at them on amazon they were around $80usd
[6:54] <warrenvsmith> it just seems that way cause the pi is so cheap

[8:00] <elek> 1k linux devices? if its on the same router as the box your own, you probably know the ip range

[13:01] <savagecroc> tp Infineon
[13:02] <gordonDrogon> Broadcom make TPM chips.. They could probably produce a custom GPU code module to emulate one...

[13:04] <gordonDrogon> some folks are (I think) working to get access to the I2S interface, so that might be able to be used - but you'd need a mic. with an I2S output!
[13:04] <savagecroc> probably too expensive howerver
[13:05] <gordonDrogon> easier to use a usb sound "card" ..
[13:05] <lantizia> I have a Spectrum 128k, and I usually use a little USB sound card with it so I can play/record tape images to/from my PC (without having to use my main sound card) - but basically I'm looking for a little device now that is Speaker/Mic to Ethernet
[13:05] <lantizia> That way *any* of my pc's can simple stream to/from the spectrum over the network
[13:06] <lantizia> was hoping the rPi might be useful in that way without having to plug the USB sound card in to that
[13:06] <savagecroc> gordonDrogon: would it be possible to manufacture something?
[13:07] <savagecroc> i.e. something very cheap that plugs into the board
[13:07] <gordonDrogon> I'd just buy a usb device.
[13:07] <savagecroc> any idea what the cost per unit is?
[13:08] <gordonDrogon> the issue with using e.g. the GPIO - SPI or I2C is timing.
[13:08] <savagecroc> usb microphones i think i really expensive
[13:08] <savagecroc> are*
[13:08] <gordonDrogon> you'd need some clever kernel drivers to do the sampling accurately.
[13:08] <savagecroc> :(
[13:08] <gordonDrogon> that's not impossible in the kernel.

[15:21] <yeboot> alsa, I guess
[15:21] <yeboot> unless I misunderstand your question
[15:22] <PhotoJim> does the analog audio output work?
[15:22] <ParkerR> No I mean
[15:22] <PhotoJim> are you saying it wont' output audio on HDMI?
[15:22] <ParkerR> HDMI or the headphone jack
[15:22] <yeboot> yeah the analog does
[15:22] <PhotoJim> or that it won't on analog when you use HDMI?
[15:22] <yeboot> when hdmi isn't connected
[15:22] <yeboot> but when hdmi is connected it outputs on neither

[15:23] <yeboot> is there no hdmi audio?
[15:23] <ParkerR> Try a 2 instead of 1
[15:23] <yeboot> but on top of this, hdmi video isn't working
[15:23] <yeboot> ParkerR no sound
[15:24] <ParkerR> yeboot, Hmm. Pastebin your /boot/config.txt
[15:24] <yeboot> sorry, hdmi video is working on boot, but I'm connected through ssh trying to put video to the framebuffer

[15:53] <Qasaur> PhotoJim, I always thought it is like an Arduino that runs on Linux

[15:53] <PhotoJim> well, it's more than an Arduino.
[15:53] <mgottschlag> and less, doesn't have ADCs :)
[15:54] <PhotoJim> agreed, if it's an Arduino you want, it's an Arduino you want.
[15:54] <PhotoJim> but the Pi can do a lot of stuff an Arduino has no hope of doing.
[15:54] <yeboot> in fact if you get the gertboard it comes with an arduino
[15:54] <yeboot> well an AVR chip
[15:55] <Qasaur> mgottschlag, ADC?
[15:55] <Qasaur> PhonicUK, yeah
[15:55] <mgottschlag> analog digital converter
[15:55] <Qasaur> well if I wanted an ADC wouldn't I just hook up an Arduino to a RPI?
[15:55] <Qasaur> or make the RPI interface with the Arduino

[16:33] <Ardivaba> The default one.
[16:33] <Amadiro> Ardivaba, just type "sudo apt-get install nodejs"

[16:35] * gado (~gado@unaffiliated/gado) Quit (Quit: Bye)

[16:37] <Amadiro> Ardivaba, if you still feel that you need a newer version than debians repositories provide you with, it is customary to put software into /opt/. So you could put your pre-compiled binary into /opt/nodejs or so, and then add /opt/nodejs/bin or so to your PATH
[16:37] * savagecroc (~grahamsav@207.126.94.2) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)

[16:38] <Ardivaba> Thanks for that. I am really new to that whole Linux scene and have lots of catching up to do.
[16:38] <Amadiro> the main advantage is that the nodejs installed through debians repositories is automatically updated for you whenever you run a system update, to get speed benefits and patch security holes
[16:39] <Amadiro> your own installation you have to take care of yourself, or it will rot eventually

[16:40] <Ardivaba> And how do i access npm?
[16:40] <Amadiro> Ardivaba, for reading usb data, you can use libusb(x)
[16:40] <Amadiro> what is npm?
[16:40] <Ardivaba> Node modules repository.
[16:40] <Ardivaba> npm install libusb
[16:40] <Amadiro> conra, I don't know what kind of CPU the cubieboard has exactly, but you probably can't do that with vlc.
[16:41] <Amadiro> libusb is a C library, not a nodejs library
[16:41] <Ardivaba> Oh.
[16:41] <Ardivaba> Well it was just an example.
[16:41] <conra> Amadiro: under other linux distro i can run hd videos in vlc...
[16:41] <Amadiro> there may be bindings for it, but you probably have to write them yourself
[16:41] <Amadiro> conra, vlc likely has no backend that is able to talk to the GPU on your cubieboard

[16:42] <conra> Amadiro: but xserver is running
[16:42] <Amadiro> conra, doesn't matter, the GPU just ignores the xserver and blits the hardware-decoded video images on top of it
[16:42] <Amadiro> you don't even need to have the xserver running

[17:17] <pelleke> My Raspi won't boot up any more. Coloured splash screen that just stays on. I read on the net that it should be caused by a broken kernel.img.
[17:17] * Qasaur (~qasaur@h21n1c1o1095.bredband.skanova.com) Quit (Ping timeout: 260 seconds)
[17:18] <pelleke> Since I'm using arch, I am looking for the download of the linux-raspberrypi package.
[17:18] <pelleke> That lead me to this page: http://www.archarm.org/?page=PackageDetails&repo=core&arch=armv6h&pkgname=linux-raspberrypi
[17:18] <pelleke> I wanted to download the package, to manually install the files on my SD card.
[17:18] <pelleke> But I found out the download link is broken.
[17:18] <pelleke> How should I proceed?
[17:19] <axion> pelleke: it can be caused by a multitude of things. the color splash is common with power problems or agressive overclocking
[17:20] <gordonDrogon> personally, I'd grab a copy of Raspbian and try that - if nothing else, that will eliminate (or prove!) hardware issues.
[17:20] <axion> first thing i would do is remove config.txt and try without. if that fails reflash a card

[17:21] <pelleke> (My bad for actually asking.)
[17:21] <markedathome> if anyone is interested, I got a massive 200KB/s write. 2MB/S read on zfs-fuse with samba, using a win7 client
[17:21] <DeliriumTremens> JEEZ WTG
[17:21] <axion> remove (backup) and reboot
[17:22] <DeliriumTremens> finally got BBS running
[17:22] <DDave> DeliriumTremens, like, a "real" bbs from the 90ies etc?
[17:23] <DeliriumTremens> yes
[17:23] <DDave> w00t, Ive been dying to "try one" ()
[17:23] <pelleke> Removed config.txt, didn't fix a thing. I did overclock to max 500-1000 ondemand
[17:23] <DDave> (Too young to have used them)
[17:23] <DeliriumTremens> its pretty simple
[17:23] <DeliriumTremens> i dont have door games running right now because that gets a little more...involved
[17:23] <DDave> DeliriumTremens, could you point me out to some keywords?
[17:23] <DeliriumTremens> i'm using Synchronet
[17:24] <Amadiro> pelleke, other people have mentioned earlier today that archlinux is broken, so you're likely looking at a distro bug there
[17:24] <DDave> DeliriumTremens, thanks!

[17:26] <pelleke> Well, I can unplug a lot of things, but my external HDD. Got root on that.
[17:26] <DDave> What is generally faster on the rpi, raspbian or arch? (Please dont bash my head in for asking)
[17:26] <pelleke> But I'll try and see whether I got kernel messages (or anything else than what I get now)
[17:26] <atouk> if you reflash, root will be on the sd
[17:26] <Amadiro> DDave, raspbian used to be faster, but now they are both hardfloat.
[17:26] <pelleke> Yes, I know.
[17:26] <axion> arch has a much fater package manager with faster dynamic linking
[17:26] <atouk> you can change it back to the hd later
[17:26] <Amadiro> DDave, so there isn't really any difference.
[17:27] <DDave> Amadiro, thank you
[17:27] <Amadiro> pacman is indeed somewhat faster than apt-get, though that isn't usually a huge deal, since you don't install packages all the time
[17:27] * Hoerie (Hoerie@ip24-182-173-82.adsl2.static.versatel.nl) Quit (Read error: Operation timed out)
[17:27] <Amadiro> DDave, but more importantly, archlinux is a distribution you should use if you always want to have the newest software, if you already know your way around GNU/linux, and you don't mind things breaking.
[17:28] <Amadiro> debian does more handholding in many regards.
[17:28] <DDave> Because im dying to try systemd :)
[17:28] <axion> also debian packages has compile-time support for too much stuff increasing binary and library sizes and execution speeds
[17:29] <Amadiro> DDave, yeah, then you probably want to go for arch

[17:44] <pelleke> @axion I fixed my issue.
[17:44] <axion> cool
[17:44] <pelleke> Turned out my kernel.img was dirty after all.
[17:45] <Torikun> what distro
[17:45] <pelleke> I downloaded the latest arch image, extracted the kernel.img
[17:45] <axion> arch
[17:45] <pelleke> arch
[17:45] <Torikun> I have that issue a lot
[17:45] <Torikun> some times updates don't go smooth
[17:45] <axion> i never got it, though i do not run off of unreliable sd
[17:45] <pelleke> I looked at the dates (which were 16 jan 2013 and 13 jan 2013)
[17:45] <pelleke> I thought: those must be the same version,
[17:45] <pelleke> (Although they may not have been)
[17:45] <pelleke> I did a MD5 hash check, and got a mismatch.
[17:45] <pelleke> Copied the one from the image over to my SD, and BAM!
[17:46] <pelleke> Booted like a charm. :)

[17:50] <pisi> I just got a raspberry but unfortunately currently only have a 32MB SD card around.
[17:50] <Torikun> its awesome!
[17:50] <axion> another point of failure in my experiences
[17:50] <pelleke> I need to use some flag in pacman that will reinstall the package,

[17:50] <pisi> Is there anything I can put onto it that would show "something" on the screen ?

[17:50] <Amadiro> pelleke, ah, I thought you wiped the whole system.
[17:50] <pelleke> even though it's up to date (according to its metadata)
[17:50] <pelleke> No,
[17:50] <axion> its another layer on topof raw data
[17:50] <pelleke> I just mounted the SD on my workstation,
[17:51] <ParkerR> mrtn, Maybe berryboot
[17:51] <pelleke> And replaced the kernel file.
[17:51] <ParkerR> Then install stuff to a flash drive
[17:51] <Amadiro> pelleke, just request the package and pacman will re-install it
[17:51] <pelleke> Yet I want to make sure I'm up to date,
[17:51] <Amadiro> clean your package cache first, to force it to re-download it
[17:51] <pelleke> Didn't know that. Will try right now.

[17:52] <ParkerR> "only have a 32MB SD card around"
[17:52] <Scriven> LOL.... sorry!
[17:52] <Scriven> too early in the morning.
[17:53] <Scriven> Couldn't the /boot fit on that to chainload tho? haven't checked the size of the files.

[17:55] <pelleke> The good one.
[17:55] <pelleke> The previous kernel went bad,
[17:56] <pelleke> Maybe power outage while upgrading or so,
[17:56] <pelleke> Or simply a failure of my SD.
[17:56] <axion> latter is quite common
[17:56] <Amadiro> pelleke, or maybe they've uploaded a fix. check when the package was submitted

[17:56] <pelleke> Hmm, that may well be the case. :)
[17:56] <mrtn> sigh.. and the 32MB one seems to be broken...
[17:56] <pelleke> OR reinstalling linux-raspberrypi didn't touch kernel.img,
[17:56] <pelleke> But I doubt that.
[17:57] <axion> including being able to overvolt higher without datacorruption
[17:57] <pelleke> Anyway, I rebooted after running sudo pacman -S linux-raspberrypi
[17:57] <Amadiro> pelleke, check the atime on the filesystem to find that out
[17:57] <pelleke> Good point.
[17:57] <pelleke> No!
[17:57] <pelleke> It's FAT16 :P
[17:57] <Amadiro> well, if you've already rebooted...

[17:58] <pelleke> I'll rename it and run the install command again. See what happens.
[17:59] <Amadiro> sounds good
[17:59] <pelleke> It may be the time the file was distributed, don't know how pacman handles times.
[17:59] <Amadiro> pelleke, what query did you run
[17:59] <Amadiro> to get that time, I mean
[18:00] <pelleke> I just got it from ls -l. That shouldn't matter, cause AFAIK FAT16 doesn't have separate atime and mtimes.
[18:00] <axion> i would mount with noatime anyway of sd media
[18:00] <axion> of = on
[18:00] <pelleke> Depends on fs.
[18:01] <pelleke> Let's see, /boot is mounted rw,relattime,fmask=0022,dmask=0022,codepage=cp437,iocharset=ascii,shortname=mixed,errors=remount-ro.
[18:02] <pelleke> no specific mention of noatime, but that may well be implicit given the fact that the file system is FAT16.
[18:02] <Amadiro> pelleke, http://archlinuxarm.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=31&t=4901 another person having the issue. Pretty sure they just pushed a bad kernel image to the repo
[18:02] <pelleke> Anyway,
[18:02] <pelleke> I got proof.
[18:02] <pelleke> I renamed kernel.img,
[18:02] <pelleke> Re-ran pacman -s linux-raspberrypi
[18:02] <pelleke> And got a new kernel.img with the exact same hash.
[18:02] <pelleke> :)

[18:57] <Amadiro> Yes, I too like to use python to plot my plan to enslave the world.
[18:57] <lkeijser> import antigravity

[18:57] <Ardivaba> How can i read /usr/ folder using fo.open
[18:57] <pronto> import automagic
[18:57] <pronto> do things!
[18:57] <Amadiro> Ardivaba, do you want to get a list of files in there?
[18:57] <Ardivaba> Actually i want to create file there.
[18:58] <Ardivaba> But i can't figure out how to write that path thingy.
[18:58] <schnuws> then just open a file in there ?
[18:58] <Amadiro> then just open the file and start writing to it
[18:58] <Ardivaba> open( "/usr/data.txt", "wb" ) tries to open: pythonscriptPath/usr/data
[18:58] <schnuws> fo.open("/usr/foo") ? just guessing on the syntax
[18:58] <lkeijser> file = '/usr/yourfile' ... f = file.open('w') ... f.write('python rules') ... f.close() something like that?
[18:58] <Amadiro> Ardivaba, really? That's peculiar
[18:59] <Ardivaba> Wait, no, im stupid.
[18:59] <Ardivaba> When i do: cd in linux.
[18:59] <Amadiro> Well, I didn't wanted to say it that rudely.
[18:59] <Ardivaba> What folder do i end up in?
[18:59] <Amadiro> your home folder
[18:59] <Ardivaba> So it's /home/?
[18:59] <Amadiro> its /home/yourusername/
[18:59] <Amadiro> usually, anyway
[18:59] <Ardivaba> /home/raspberrypi

[19:07] <Amadiro> Well, you can basically do this with any microcontroller like an arduino or stellaris, though.
[19:07] <Amadiro> but you have to write your software yourself.
[19:07] <Ardivaba> Writing software isn't the issue.
[19:07] <Amadiro> well, and you have to write the firmware yourself too.
[19:07] <Ardivaba> But K8055 saves you lots of trouble...because you don't have to stick resistors everywhere.
[19:08] <Ardivaba> Why?
[19:08] <Ardivaba> Would i need to write my own firmware to communicate with Arduino?
[19:08] <ch4r0s> hi. got problem. tool works on rpi(rev2), but not on rpi(rev1). both got raspbian and the same config. tool source: http://pastebin.com/88cf0piV
[19:08] <ch4r0s> any ideas
[19:08] <Amadiro> Ardivaba, by firmware I mean the program running on the arduino/stellaris/etc
[19:08] <Ardivaba> Oh.
[19:08] <Amadiro> Since it isn't configured by default to take commands and act on them
[19:09] <Amadiro> but with the arduino ide or so, implementing that is really just a 10-minutes job.

[19:09] * Shaan7 (~quassel@kde/shantanu) Quit (Quit: http://quassel-irc.org - Chat comfortably. Anywhere.)
[19:10] <Amadiro> Ardivaba, basically the easiest way to establish communication between a linux machine and a microcontroller like the arduino is to have it act as a CDC, which means you get an "emulated" serial terminal
[19:10] <Amadiro> (also works on windows, but requires extra drivers)
[19:10] <Amadiro> on linux, a serial terminal is just like a file that you can write some data to, then it will appear on the arduino-side
[19:11] <Amadiro> and conversely, if the arduino writes something, you can just read from the file and you will get the data

[19:31] <shiftplusone> Wikipedia says it's x86 only
[19:32] <shiftplusone> and it uses virtualization, so if it's for pi, forget it.

[19:40] <Amadiro> DeliriumTremens, many emulators like bochs have no problem to run MS-DOS or freedos
[19:40] <DeliriumTremens> Amadiro: thanks i'll check it out
[19:41] <mjr> indeed, if you want to run a spesific dos, not dosbox, bochs would be one way
[19:41] <shiftplusone> I'd still go with dosbox
[19:41] <mjr> not sure if qemu works well for x86 on arm, it would be faster but IIRC there were some problems

[19:46] <Amadiro> noca$h is pretty much considered the definitive ds & gba emulator, but it's even more resource-hungry
[19:46] <Amadiro> but way less bugs
[19:47] <axion> afaik there is a desmume implementation for retroarch which has been ported for the pi, and can emulate most PSX games fine with a slight overclock, so NDS may be quite good

[20:20] <linuxstb> luxor: Sounds like you either haven't created the config.txt file correctly (e.g. put it in the wrong place), or you're running an older firmware that doesn't recognise that option.
[20:20] <luxor> it's a fresh archlinux install

[20:41] <axion> most ftp clients support SFTP, which is runing by default on *bian or arch on the pi
[20:41] <schnuws> so, just use the openssh server
[20:41] <axion> yes
[20:42] <mjr> yeah I'd actually advise against using ftp these days unless your needs are very spesific
[20:42] <axion> it is also more secure and not clear text
[20:42] <axion> not to mention poking another hole in your firewall
[20:43] <mjr> mind you, with the pi, there might be more of a case for ftp (vs. sftp) precisely because ftp is unencrypted and therefore has much lower cpu overhead

[21:12] <Kasreyn> ok maybe if i switched CEC off?

[21:12] <Kasreyn> turned out my TV doesn't support it anyway
[21:12] <sraue> i have such rpi too... and i think at least here its a hardware problem, because its not the case on a different rpi

[21:50] <Macer> shiftplusone: sure. but using an android device without a google acct? :)

[21:51] <Macer> sadbox: i don't know.. looking at how google was using cookies to get past safari's "opt out" option...
[21:51] <Macer> then just took the settlement because the money they made far outweighed the fine
[21:51] <shiftplusone> You can already install ubuntu (the proper phone version) on some phones, yeah.

[21:52] <Macer> i'm waiting for a full version of a device that runs it
[21:52] <Macer> |Jeroen|: stronger ones
[21:52] <Macer> i think they want you to use 4 core devices with 2GB of ram
[21:52] <Macer> seems a bit much if you ask me :)
[21:52] <Macer> you can put it on a nexus7
[21:52] <Macer> i miss maemo :(
[21:53] <|Jeroen|> they should force phone makers to open up there phones, so the user is free to choose the os
[21:53] <sadbox> Macer: Again, it depends on the service.
[21:53] <Macer> |Jeroen|: heh. they can't do that
[21:53] <Macer> manufacturers don't own the IP :)
[21:53] <|Jeroen|> its should be a law
[21:53] <Macer> that is a huge reason you will never see a FULLY open device
[21:53] <Macer> |Jeroen|: blame china :-P
[21:53] <|Jeroen|> like pc's are open
[21:53] <Macer> they'd replicate things to death if that was the case
[21:53] <shiftplusone> |Jeroen|, who's they? and why should it be a law?
[21:54] <|Jeroen|> the goverment
[21:54] <shiftplusone> which
[21:54] <sadbox> |Jeroen|: Phones generally have piles of patents under the hood
[21:54] <Macer> it would never happen heh
[21:54] <|Jeroen|> mine
[21:54] <Macer> |Jeroen|: if your govt did that
[21:54] <Macer> they jsut wouldn't sell phones there :)
[21:54] <Macer> the cost would be too high
[21:54] <Macer> like i said.. china would take them and replitcate them to death
[21:54] <shiftplusone> Well, when Belgium declares war on the rest of the world to open up phones... maybe.

[21:55] <Macer> then they have to make a prototype... then manufacture it.. all with NEW hardware

[21:56] <|Jeroen|> no but you can freely choose the os
[21:56] <|Jeroen|> that would be eneugh
[21:56] <Macer> |Jeroen|: try putting a different os on the x86 surface ;)
[21:56] <Macer> let me know how that works out
[21:57] <Macer> if they really wanted to close off an os from a pc they can do it
[21:57] <Macer> or at the very least make it a bit more difficult for joe user to swap over to a different os
[21:57] <Macer> but i don't consider being able to install a different os on something as it being "open"

[22:00] <shiftplusone> We're not broadcasting O_o
[22:00] <designbybeck> shiftplusone: what version of synergy did you use on the Pi?
[22:00] <shiftplusone> designbybeck, don't remember, it was a while back.
[22:00] <designbybeck> the one in the repos is 1.3 ish
[22:00] <designbybeck> are you using the commandline to run it?
[22:01] <designbybeck> i'm just trying to figure out how to install the 1.4 version
[22:01] <shiftplusone> again, it was a long time ago. I just know it works and it works well.
[22:01] <sadbox> I view the android world the same as if they were releasing a new pi each month. Every one with it's quirks and bugs. Until it settles down and becomes more standard (like PC's eventually did) you won't see a large amount of choice
[22:01] <designbybeck> ok, I'll keep hunting thank you shiftplusone
[22:01] <designbybeck> at least I know it is possible now
[22:01] <shiftplusone> good luck

[22:03] <|Jeroen|> buy the A model
[22:04] <shiftplusone> You can disable it by desoldering it or getting a model
[22:04] <sadbox> On an unrelated note: I want a pi! waiting forever is lame
[22:04] <shiftplusone> and yeah, it should improve usb performance
[22:04] <shiftplusone> sadbox, who did you order from?
[22:04] <sadbox> shiftplusone: newark
[22:04] <|Jeroen|> can't u just build a kernel whout it
[22:05] <sadbox> it's been less than a week, I'm just impatient
[22:05] <jbaanus> shiftplusone: only desoldering is an option, no other way to do it? I remember a command to disable it.
[22:06] <shiftplusone> afaik, there is no way to disable it in software. You can just not connect or leave it unplugged, but it's still powered and using up a silly amount of power even when the pi is halted.
[22:08] <defiantredpill> just don't use it and you usb should be as fast as it can be
[22:08] <defiantredpill> usb 2.0 only gets like 20-30MB/s max

[22:33] <steve_rox> sudo halt makes it kinda power down but its probly too brain dead at that stage to think to do anything
[22:33] <defiantredpill> it can be shutdown, thats like off with a pwr led. no WOL

[22:34] <nid0> not sleeping
[22:34] <defiantredpill> pwr led is hard wired to th power sup.
[22:34] <nid0> turning it back on = disconnecting then reconnecting power

[22:59] <mjr> dwatkins, still doubting that there's actual utf-16 involed and you've just misinterpreted something
[23:00] <dwatkins> mjr: quite possibly, but the difference on the Pi is that I have to provide two bytes to produce a degrees symbol, whereas the same script on an i386 linux system only needs one byte
[23:00] <DeliriumTremens> shiftplusone: feel free to punch me in the grundle, i've been doing this all from ssh
[23:00] <DeliriumTremens> guess what happened when i connected HDMI and ran it locally...
[23:00] <Doxin> how hard would it be to get a RPi running from a PC PSU? I know they supply 5v, but afaik the RPi takes 4.5v. (before you start screaming about it being overpowered for just a pi, calm down, I have solenoids running on it too)
[23:00] <pksato> Primer: tvservice ?
[23:00] <dwatkins> i.e. the Pi requires '\xC2\xB0' whereas the i386 machine prints a degrees symbol just with '\xB0'
[23:00] <mjr> dwatkins, you should've told us that from the start
[23:00] <dwatkins> mjr: oh sorry, I was going down the wrong rabbit hole?
[23:01] <Primer> pksato: thanks
[23:01] <mjr> the degree symbol is not in ascii, and utf-8 does indeed require two octets for communicating it
[23:01] <axion> Doxin: the rpi takes usb spec'd power requirements. 5v +/- 5%. the atx molex has 5v so you are set. a bit overkill but set.
[23:01] <dwatkins> ah my bad, I thought UTF-16 was what needed two bytes
[23:02] <mjr> utf-16 uses 16-bit units, one or two of them per unicode point
[23:02] <pksato> utf-8 is multi-byte
[23:02] <Doxin> axion: how about power fluctuations though. PSUs are fairly well regulated, but will a power spike on the 12v line kill/reboot the pi?
[23:02] <mjr> utf-8 uses 8-bit units, one to was it four of them per unicode point, depending on the point
[23:02] <dwatkins> so I guess the question is now something I should take the #ubuntu-uk to find out why my i386 machines aren't using UTF-8 ;)

[23:03] <dwatkins> well today I learned something, thanks folks :)
[23:03] <axion> Doxin: that is why usb is designed to work with 4.75-5.25v afaik. 12v will fry it. you must only use ~5v
[23:04] <Doxin> axion: obviously,
[23:04] <home> lol
[23:04] <Doxin> axion: but I'll have other magic connected to the 12v line, and I'm worried about spikes carrying over into the 5v line.

[23:08] <Doxin> axion: and then there's the problem of getting the power into the pi, I'd rather not solder anything to the board directly.
[23:10] * tinti (~tinti@pdpc/supporter/student/tinti) Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[23:10] <axion> i am not sure about 12v spikes. personally i power from a 12/9/5v portable psu, with a usb wire spliced to gpio pins
[23:11] * Holden (~holden@unaffiliated/holdenc) has joined #raspberrypi
[23:11] <hybr1d8> you can put power in via the header pins - but you should clean it since that input is un-protected
[23:11] <Doxin> right
[23:11] <axion> yep
[23:11] <Doxin> hrm
[23:12] <Doxin> axion: would wiring 5v into the mini-usb work?
[23:12] <mgottschlag> it is easy to filter out spikes btw, so that should not be your worry
[23:12] <axion> of course
[23:12] * cyclick (~user@unaffiliated/cyclick) has joined #raspberrypi
[23:12] <axion> that is recommended over header pins
[23:12] <Doxin> mgottschlag: define "easy"
[23:12] <Doxin> axion: just wondering, since the usb spec says 4.5v
[23:12] <axion> 4.5v?
[23:12] <Doxin> afaik
[23:13] <mgottschlag> Doxin: a zener diode construction to filter everything above 5.x volt out
[23:13] <hybr1d8> that is the minimum for the spec - but the pi will have problems if you just give it that
[23:13] * dwatkins (~dominic@pdpc/supporter/active/dwatkins) has left #raspberrypi
[23:13] <axion> 5v +/- 5%
[23:13] <Doxin> mgottschlag: right
[23:13] <axion> 4.75-5.25 is within spec
[23:13] * dwatkins (~dominic@pdpc/supporter/active/dwatkins) has joined #raspberrypi
[23:13] <axion> though the pi can handle slightly more
[23:13] <Doxin> hmm
[23:13] <axion> i wouldnt recommend it
[23:13] <mgottschlag> (don't use 5V though, if you have a powerful supply which is at 5.05V, you'll fry the diode
[23:14] <Doxin> mgottschlag: right
[23:14] <Doxin> sounds like a problem solved then.
[23:14] <Doxin> mgottschlag: I doubt that ATX PSUs don't have those already though.
[23:14] * cyclick2 (~user@unaffiliated/cyclick) Quit (Ping timeout: 264 seconds)
[23:14] <Doxin> how bad would it be to wire the power the wrong way around?
[23:15] <mgottschlag> I'd expect that to fry the pi
[23:15] <mgottschlag> and if not, you'd at least fry the capacitor :)
[23:15] <dwatkins> I wondered about converting an old ATX PSU to supply 5V, 12V etc. for various things. I imagine I'd need to protect the outputs with fuses at very least, though.
[23:16] <lost_soul> cheaper in the long run to buy a multimeter so you know you wire it properly
[23:16] * tubadaz (~quassel@pdpc/supporter/student/tubadaz) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[23:16] <mgottschlag> actually, I still have an unused ATX supply which I want to convert to a power supply for experiments here
[23:16] <mgottschlag> maybe even with an adjustable voltage regulator :)
[23:17] <piney0> atx diy benchtop power supply is on my todo lidt too
[23:17] <dwatkins> I was thinking I'd just put USB sockets and molex connectors on mine with standard voltages as you'd find on/in a PC.
[23:17] <Doxin> mgottschlag: what voltages do you need besides 0v +5v (possibly -5v) +12v and -12v?
[23:17] <Doxin> mgottschlag: you can build quite some voltages from those
[23:18] * Holden (~holden@unaffiliated/holdenc) has left #raspberrypi
[23:18] <mgottschlag> 1.2V, 1.8V, 3.3V... (although ATX includes 3.3V already) :D
[23:18] <mgottschlag> no idea
[23:18] <KiltedPi^> ROBOT's of course!
[23:18] <mgottschlag> haven't needed it yet, but I want to play with FPGAs some time this year, and those are usually lower voltage afaik

[23:21] <hybr1d8> long extension cord ;)
[23:21] <dwatkins> Perhaps Skynet runs off 110 Volts, and the UK will be safe from invasion.
[23:21] <KiltedPi^> My answer to most questions- "ROBOTS"
[23:21] <KiltedPi^> Skynet is real!
[23:22] <KiltedPi^> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skynet
[23:22] <dwatkins> KiltedPi^: it is, I worked at a place where they had a lab machine called skynet.
[23:22] <dwatkins> oh that, yeah - not as fun as a 512-core Altix ;)
