[0:00] * [deXter] (~dexter@203-97-173-37.cable.telstraclear.net) Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[0:00] * _deXter_ is now known as [deXter]
[0:00] <chithead> you can power the pi by feeding back power through the usb-a ports, which have no fuses in current models
[0:00] <pksato> pa1983: can power RPi from GPIO header. To protect, use "wire" fuse.
[0:00] <shiftplusone> pa1983, I have asked a guy from the foundation how much current the board can actually carry from the input to usb if you short out the fuse. He didn't know off the top of his head though. You can run wries straight from the input to usb 5v/gnd lines to make sure it doesn't run through the board though
[0:00] <shiftplusone> or backfeed through a dodgy usb hub
[0:01] <pa1983> chickens, yes I know, thats a sulution I have considered if I had to little power. Guess I find out sonn enough
[0:01] <double-you> shiftplusone: is it ok to front- and backfeed 5V?
[0:01] <shiftplusone> If it's from the same supply
[0:01] <pa1983> shiftplusone, considered that to. The pi is low cost but feels kind of wrong that you must mod and break warrenty aout of the box
[0:02] <double-you> shiftplusone: yes same supply
[0:02] <pa1983> its not like Im asking it to do anything out of the ordinary
[0:03] * Hopsy (~Hopsy@unaffiliated/hopsy) Quit (Ping timeout: 255 seconds)
[0:03] <shiftplusone> double-you, If you have 5V on the usb side and 5V on the input coming in from the supply, electrically, it is all the same node, which is fine.
[0:03] <pa1983> I do have som raly nice fine wire laying around specialy for tigth places where I need maximum current for the smallest footprint. Could use that
[0:03] * aditya (~root@cpe-24-94-25-93.san.res.rr.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:04] <double-you> shiftplusone: I just wondered when I wanted to switch off my raspberry by disconnecting the front power :-)
[0:04] * KiltedPi (KiltedPi@host-92-28-21-9.as13285.net) Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[0:04] <double-you> and it kept running over the usb power
[0:04] <pa1983> using the wire trick shuld solve that but warrenty is bay bay
[0:05] <shiftplusone> I am not actually 100% sure what happens there. If you have current being sourced from two points and you have capacitive or inductive components and one of the sources is removed.... I don't know what happens
[0:05] <pa1983> so how much power is actually left for the usb ports on a 512Mb model running stock speeds?
[0:06] <chithead> no hardware modification is needed if you bypass the fuse via pin header or usb a
[0:06] <shiftplusone> Whether it instantly draws more current through the other source or if there is a brief supply issue until it settles again...
[0:06] * KiltedPi (KiltedPi@host-92-28-21-9.as13285.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:06] <pa1983> chickens, is there a pin header to bypas the polyfuse?
[0:06] <KiltedPi> urgh
[0:06] <chithead> earlier models had 140mA fuses on the usb ports, so that gives you an idea
[0:06] <KiltedPi> what should I use as my IP?
[0:06] <KiltedPi> My router-
[0:06] <KiltedPi> Or whatever I get with "Whatismyip.com
[0:07] <shiftplusone> pa1983, around 300mA, I think.
[0:07] <shiftplusone> pa1983, 750-350. And originally there were polyfuses on usb side limiting each port to 140mA, which confirms that a little.
[0:08] <KiltedPi> What did you guys put-
[0:08] <KiltedPi> when you installed your OS-
[0:08] <KiltedPi> as your IP address. Like, where did you get it
[0:08] <shiftplusone> KiltedPi, what are you doing exactly? Where are you putting that address and why?
[0:09] <pa1983> shiftplusone, well I think I can run stock at least then. Dont know what the wlan uses but I sue this model. http://www.broadbandbuyer.co.uk/Shop/Reviews.asp?ProductID=13905
[0:09] <KiltedPi> Installing Raspbian
[0:09] <KiltedPi> It asks me what my IP is-
[0:09] <pksato> KiltedPi: ifconfig or ip command.
[0:09] <KiltedPi> for DHCP settings
[0:09] <pa1983> wlan is max 100mw plus what ever the chip uses so
[0:09] <Viper-7> i love how by design dasiy chaining raspberry pis kills them
[0:09] <pksato> or, dhcp server log.
[0:10] <KiltedPi> pksato-
[0:10] <KiltedPi> I'm in the install screen
[0:10] <KiltedPi> doing a network install
[0:10] <KiltedPi> no console :(
[0:10] <shiftplusone> KiltedPi, I still havent' figured out what you're doing. Are you running the raspbian installer rather than using the official image or something?
[0:11] <pksato> dhcp server log. (router status)
[0:11] <KiltedPi> running the raspbian installer-
[0:11] <KiltedPi> a clean install
[0:11] <shiftplusone> KiltedPi, no idea, wouldn't touch that thing,
[0:11] <KiltedPi> I just copied the files onto the SD
[0:11] <pa1983> chithead, you sad there was pins to bypass the polyfuse any picture or guide for that? If its just a jumper I need I have that from old PC hardwarte
[0:11] <pksato> screen?
[0:11] <chithead> the pin header is not protected by fuse
[0:11] <KiltedPi> http://www.raspbian.org/RaspbianInstaller
[0:12] <KiltedPi> thats where i got the advice
[0:12] <shiftplusone> pa1983, I wouldn't be so sure. wifi dongles like that can have spikes in current draw, especially when they are just plugged in. That can easily reboot your pi. Hard to say what the maximum current draw of a dongle like that is.
[0:12] <Viper-7> KiltedPi: why not just use an image?
[0:12] <shiftplusone> KiltedPi, stick to this http://www.raspberrypi.org/downloads
[0:12] <KiltedPi> link?
[0:12] <KiltedPi> ah -
[0:12] <KiltedPi> That'll save some time hah!
[0:13] <Viper-7> http://www.raspbian.org/RaspbianImages
[0:13] <pa1983> shiftplusone, I know that you shuld not hotplug and It will never be removed
[0:13] <pksato> wait, KiltedPi you need help to?
[0:13] <shiftplusone> pa1983, might be fine then, yeah.

[0:16] <KiltedPi> I'm good now
[0:16] <shiftplusone> KiltedPi, pi:raspberry to log in, ssh is on by default, raspi-config is the configure tool if you don't want to do it manually.
[0:17] * bertrik (~quassel@rockbox/developer/bertrik) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[0:18] <Viper-7> use the adafruit distro if you expect hardware features like i2c, spi, 1wire, rtc, wifi, etc to just work :P
[0:18] <Viper-7> each of those was a pain to get going using the standard raspbian distro :<
[0:19] * tinti (~tinti@pdpc/supporter/student/tinti) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:21] * dobra-dobra (~szymon@89-73-76-156.dynamic.chello.pl) has left #raspberrypi
[0:21] * Yachtsman (~Yachtsman@ Quit (Quit: gogo)
[0:22] * zyklon (~zyklon@122-57-187-237.jetstream.xtra.co.nz) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:23] * af1 (~af1@ Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[0:24] <gordonDrogon> i2c and spi work perfectly well with the standard Raspbian.
[0:24] * m8 (~mor@unaffiliated/m8) Quit (Quit: Sto andando via)
[0:24] <gordonDrogon> don't know about the rest though, but I use I2c and spi regualrly.
[0:24] <Viper-7> except that the kernel modules are manually disabled
[0:25] <gordonDrogon> that's not exactly a problem though.
[0:25] <gordonDrogon> personally, I think it's much better that they are disabled - then you can use more GPIO pins if needed without having to remove them.
[0:25] <Viper-7> /etc/modprobe.d/raspi_blacklist.conf
[0:26] * beers (~beers@ has joined #raspberrypi
[0:26] <gordonDrogon> gpio load spi
[0:26] <Viper-7> blacklist, because `most users dont use these`, entirely undocumented
[0:26] <gordonDrogon> is not exactly hard to do.
[0:26] <Viper-7> i found that awesomely handy :/
[0:26] * retrosenator (~sean@ has joined #raspberrypi
[0:26] <gordonDrogon> also the gpio load thingy changes ownership so you can run spi & i2c programs without being root if needed.
[0:26] <retrosenator> I dont have a micro usb how can I power this thing?
[0:27] <gordonDrogon> mobile phone charger.
[0:27] <retrosenator> dont have one
[0:27] <gordonDrogon> you live in a cave.
[0:27] <Viper-7> 5v to GPIO 2
[0:27] <retrosenator> a boat
[0:27] <ParkerR> Standard micro USB charges are only around 500mAh
[0:27] <shiftplusone> buy one, use gpio or a backfeeding hub.
[0:27] <retrosenator> Viper-7:: thank you, what about gnd?
[0:27] <Viper-7> gnd to GPIO 6
[0:27] <Viper-7> http://elinux.org/images/2/2a/GPIOs.png
[0:27] <retrosenator> shiftplusone:: you can backfeed on the other usb ports?
[0:27] <gordonDrogon> retrosenator, if you have a uUSB cable them plug it into a laptop or PC.
[0:28] <ParkerR> retrosenator, Yes that too
[0:28] <Viper-7> retrosenator: only on newer models without polyfuses for each usb port
[0:28] <shiftplusone> retrosenator, yup, if your hub is dodgy enough to do that.
[0:28] <retrosenator> cool I have spare cables wiht A plug I can
[0:28] <retrosenator> I like gpio way best
[0:28] <ParkerR> gordonDrogon, That's not the best idea. Could fry the laptop
[0:28] <Viper-7> the usb fuses on old models wont allow enough power through for the pi
[0:28] <dRbiG> oh, seeing gpio - what interfaces to that do we have?
[0:28] <Viper-7> just remember the gpio is unfused
[0:28] <dRbiG> i remember hearing about a python one
[0:28] <Viper-7> so be careful :P
[0:28] <dRbiG> anything else?
[0:29] <gordonDrogon> ParkerR, I'll mention that to the laptop under my desk currently powering 2 Pi's then..
[0:29] <ParkerR> gordonDrogon, Anything plugged into the Pi's?
[0:29] <Viper-7> dRbiG: between memory mapped io, the bcm2835.c library which automates that, and sysfs - bascially anything and everything :P
[0:29] <gordonDrogon> ParkerR, a gertboard on one of them and an LCD display on the other.
[0:29] <ParkerR> Never heard of a laptop supplying over than about 500 or so mAh
[0:29] <retrosenator> i have a 5 amp buck regulator to drop 12v down to 5
[0:30] <gordonDrogon> dRbiG, there is the wiringPi library for C/C++ use - also wrappers for it in Python, etc.
[0:30] <gordonDrogon> Viper-7, ugh. bcm2835.c ... ugh...
[0:30] <Viper-7> dRbiG: echo 24 > /sys/class/gpio/export; echo out > /sys/class/gpio/gpio24/direction; echo 1 > /sys/class/gpio/gpio24/value
[0:30] <retrosenator> is it true the raspberry uses almost as much power idle as under full load?
[0:30] <gordonDrogon> Viper-7, don't confuse folks with that )-:
[0:30] <ParkerR> retrosenator, No
[0:30] <shiftplusone> retrosenator, Model B, yeah.
[0:30] <dRbiG> ok, then - how tight can I get the timings?
[0:30] <ParkerR> idle will use elss power
[0:30] <shiftplusone> heh
[0:30] <gordonDrogon> more or less
[0:31] <ParkerR> *less
[0:31] <Viper-7> gordonDrogon: if youre going to criticise, be specific, whats wrong?
[0:31] * Zeeshan_M is now known as TBF
[0:31] <gordonDrogon> dRbiG, how tight do you want them? Remember it's normally running a multi-tasking OS ...
[0:31] <shiftplusone> ParkerR, have you measured current draw at full load and idle?
[0:31] <gordonDrogon> Viper-7, that library was copied from my wiringPi without any sort of attribution.
[0:31] <ParkerR> shiftplusone, Well I had one power supply that crapped out under a higher load
[0:31] <ParkerR> Not sure exactly
[0:31] <KiltedPi> Ach! don't worry gordon
[0:32] <KiltedPi> You're a legend
[0:32] <gordonDrogon> I don't - it's just mildly irritating.
[0:32] <shiftplusone> ParkerR, upi
[0:32] <Viper-7> gordonDrogon: its basic reference implementations
[0:32] <shiftplusone> gah... can't type
[0:33] <dRbiG> gordonDrogon: I know. I'll have to check it. I did an usual-ir-remote receiver on a pic, it has a rs232 interface, i was wondering if i could do all that on the pic
[0:33] <ParkerR> shiftplusone, upi?
[0:33] <dRbiG> don't remember the timings
[0:33] <shiftplusone> ParkerR, we're talking about cpu/gpu load, right?
[0:33] <dRbiG> on the rpi*, sorry
[0:33] <ParkerR> Yeah and network too.
[0:33] * cyclick2 (~user@unaffiliated/cyclick) Quit (Quit: left)
[0:33] <gordonDrogon> Viper-7, that it may be, but he copied wiringPi lock/stock/barrel from GPLv3 code without any ack.
[0:34] <gordonDrogon> Viper-7, he also copied a lot of my other stuff that wasn't 'reference implementation' either.
[0:34] * KeatonT (~textual@unaffiliated/keatont) Quit (Quit: Computer has gone to sleep.)
[0:34] <shiftplusone> ParkerR, pretty sure it's around 350mA either way. 'course there will be a difference, but not that much. The lan chip alone will use half of the power even when it's not used.
[0:34] <Viper-7> gordonDrogon: sounds like a problem between you and him, not between me and the code
[0:34] <gordonDrogon> dRbiG, there is a kerlel module for that - look up LIRC.
[0:34] <ParkerR> shiftplusone, I thought model B was 700mAh min?
[0:34] * cyclick (~user@unaffiliated/cyclick) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:34] <Viper-7> he sounds like a dick, but shrug, most of that code youd be very hard pressed to even claim that it was copied, the implementation is so standard & simple
[0:34] <gordonDrogon> dRbiG, accurate timing on the Pi is not easy due to Linux and the GPU doing memory & video refresh.
[0:35] * Cy-Gor (~Brian@cpe-70-124-70-140.austin.res.rr.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:35] <shiftplusone> ParkerR, that's what they recommend. around 350 for the actual pi and the rest for usb.
[0:35] * ukscone (~Adium@cpe-24-193-113-179.nyc.res.rr.com) Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[0:35] <gordonDrogon> Viper-7, my code wasn't quite 'reference'..
[0:36] <retrosenator> 700 sounds high yeah
[0:36] <gordonDrogon> dRbiG, some things are actually easier to get more accurately on a pic or atmega, etc.
[0:36] <retrosenator> I have a pico projector from my beagleboard.. hopefully that can work too
[0:37] <dRbiG> gordonDrogon: true. i'll probably try doing rs232 from rpi, should make a decent platform for interfacing to other stuff
[0:37] <chris_99> you could do accurate timing if you removed the OS ;)
[0:37] <dRbiG> yeah
[0:37] <retrosenator> chris_99:: real time linux?
[0:37] <shiftplusone> What about the realtime patches or freertos?
[0:37] <chris_99> i mean just remove the OS and use straight asm
[0:38] <chris_99> so no kernel switching at all
[0:38] <retrosenator> chris_99: yea great idea, dont use c or some higher level language even
[0:38] <shiftplusone> You don't code your pi with butterflies?
[0:38] <Viper-7> <gordonDrogon> dRbiG, some things are actually easier to get more accurately on a pic or atmega, etc.
[0:38] <chris_99> haha shiftplusone
[0:39] <SwK> anyone around thats familiar with the MCP230XX i2c to GPIO chips?
[0:39] <shiftplusone> I've got 10 of those chips, but haven't used them yet.
[0:39] * HyperThread27 (~hyperthre@unaffiliated/hyperthread27) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:39] * aphadke (~Adium@ip-64-134-237-141.public.wayport.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:39] <retrosenator> Viper-7:: less complicated.. easier to predict
[0:40] <SwK> shiftplusone: I'm eyeball deep in a cross between the adafruit 16x2 LCD + 5 button plate, plus a 12key 4x3 matrix keypad lol
[0:40] * aphadke (~Adium@ip-64-134-237-141.public.wayport.net) has left #raspberrypi
[0:40] <shiftplusone> heh, handy chip to have then.
[0:40] <SwK> yeah
[0:40] <SwK> actually have 2 of them, the 16 port fanout and the 8 port fanout
[0:40] <retrosenator> anyone using the zif connectors like S2?
[0:41] <Viper-7> sorry phone
[0:41] * Cykey (~textual@modemcable119.94-162-184.mc.videotron.ca) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:41] <shiftplusone> I am still waiting for my 5v tolerant buffers to arrive before using it.
[0:42] <SwK> I'm pretty happy with them so far???
[0:42] <shiftplusone> SwK, could I steal some code from you for future reference then?
[0:43] * chris_99 (~chris_99@unaffiliated/chris-99/x-3062929) Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[0:43] <SwK> shiftplusone: I stole code from Adafruit lol
[0:43] <shiftplusone> Heh, ok thanks I'll take a look there. Perfect
[0:43] <shiftplusone> Don't they stick to python though?
[0:44] <SwK> shiftplusone: https://github.com/adafruit/Adafruit-Raspberry-Pi-Python-Code <-- for python, if you want C, you'll want to look at gordonDrogon's i2c stuff
[0:44] <shiftplusone> Yeah, I was hoping you were using C. Fair enough.
[0:44] * zproc (~zproc@laf31-6-82-241-3-109.fbx.proxad.net) Quit (Quit: zproc)
[0:44] <SwK> its on the horizon but i have not had time to figure out gordon's stuff yet???
[0:45] * wiiguy (~fake@unaffiliated/wiiguy) Quit (Quit: I just broke my connection, but no worries, we can rebuild it. We have the technology.)
[0:45] <gordonDrogon> Hm. just had an email from a poor chap who's just blown up his Pi - via the Gertboard )-:
[0:45] * Retrospect (~Saicho@5ED312C6.cm-7-4a.dynamic.ziggo.nl) Quit (Ping timeout: 260 seconds)
[0:46] <gordonDrogon> you can't get accurate timing even in 'bare metal' mode. The GPU still does memory and video refresh which stalls the ARM from time to time.
[0:47] <Viper-7> <gordonDrogon> dRbiG, some things are actually easier to get more accurately on a pic or atmega, etc.
[0:47] <Scriven> Ew, gertboard blowup? What happened?
[0:47] <Viper-7> agree completely, except that i use msp430 or propeller :P
[0:47] <gordonDrogon> he connected what he thought was DC to the motor controller - turned out to be AC.
[0:48] <gordonDrogon> sounds like it's fried the motor controlle and the Pi. SoC gets red hot on the Pi now and it don't work.
[0:49] * double-you (~Miranda@178-26-159-95-dynip.superkabel.de) Quit (Quit: ja)
[0:49] <Scriven> wow, that's a big oops.
[0:51] * DaQatz (~DB@pool-64-222-107-170.burl.east.myfairpoint.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:51] <retrosenator> can i use gparted to expand the partition?
[0:51] <gordonDrogon> probably.
[0:51] <retrosenator> ok
[0:51] <gordonDrogon> you can also use raspi-config
[0:51] <gordonDrogon> which will automatically do it all for you.
[0:52] <gordonDrogon> that ought to run at first boot time anyway.
[0:52] <retrosenator> it can do it on the raspberry itself?
[0:52] <gordonDrogon> yes
[0:52] <retrosenator> ok cool
[0:53] <retrosenator> i wonder if I should use wifi or ethernet
[0:53] <gordonDrogon> ethernet
[0:53] <shiftplusone> gordonDrogon, what about going even more bare metal and using the videocore directly? =D
[0:53] <retrosenator> is the usb wifi pretty bug free?
[0:53] <gordonDrogon> at least to start with.
[0:53] <ParkerR> retrosenator, Depends on the adapter
[0:53] <retrosenator> mostly mine are realtek
[0:53] <gordonDrogon> shiftplusone, Hehe... someone might well do it, but even them, you still need to refresh the dram!
[0:53] <ParkerR> rtl8188cus is well suppoorted
[0:53] <retrosenator> cool
[0:54] <retrosenator> time to splice in some power...
[0:54] <ParkerR> retrosenator, ?
[0:54] <gordonDrogon> shiftplusone, I did once write some code for a processor which refreshed its own RAM in software. funky stuff.
[0:54] <retrosenator> ParkerR:: running power into gpio
[0:54] <ParkerR> retrosenator, Oh
[0:55] <retrosenator> from buck converter..
[0:55] <gordonDrogon> no usb cables at all? touch 5v to the 3.3v pin which is right next to it and ... byby pi

[1:01] <gordonDrogon> ok but double check before powering it up.
[1:03] <retrosenator> i'm triple checking
[1:03] * aditya (~root@cpe-24-94-25-93.san.res.rr.com) Quit (Ping timeout: 276 seconds)
[1:04] <gordonDrogon> :)
[1:04] <gordonDrogon> do you have an hdmi monitor?
[1:05] * Nemo7 (~nemo@unaffiliated/nemo7) Quit (Quit: it really tied the room together)
[1:05] <gordonDrogon> if so, then plug it in and make sure it's turned on first.
[1:05] <gordonDrogon> the Pi auto-detects and will fall-back to composite video if it doesn't detect a 'live' hdmi device.
[1:06] <retrosenator> yes
[1:06] <retrosenator> pprojector
[1:06] <retrosenator> headless is fine with me though

[1:17] <retrosenator> pwr is steady read, act flashes
[1:17] <Viper-7> watch for the ethernet lights to blink off a while after boot, shortly after that happens itll be booted
[1:17] <retrosenator> although it just stopped
[1:17] <Viper-7> heh or not
[1:17] * mpmc (~mpmc@unaffiliated/mpmc) Quit (Read error: Operation timed out)

[1:22] <retrosenator> 8 and 10?
[1:22] <retrosenator> is that 5v?
[1:23] <retrosenator> I dont actually have a serial port heh
[1:23] <Viper-7> 3.3
[1:23] <Viper-7> heh
[1:23] <retrosenator> maybe I can interface with an arduino
[1:23] <Viper-7> haha
[1:23] <retrosenator> what? I bet it would work
[1:24] <Viper-7> but then you need to get the data off the arduino >:D

[1:24] <retrosenator> yes and bitbang the second serial port
[1:24] <Viper-7> to talk to ?

[1:24] * mentar (~quassel@hack.rs) Quit (Ping timeout: 252 seconds)

[1:26] <retrosenator> if I edit /etc/network/interfaces I should be able to configure the network
[1:26] <retrosenator> actually I might have a level shifter somewhere
[1:26] <retrosenator> maybe I can get wifi working headless.. then I'm set heh

[1:47] <ParkerR> UnaClocker, :D
[1:47] <UnaClocker> Trying to find a post somewhere on these here interwebs where someone has wired a Sega Genesis controller into a Pi..
[1:47] <ParkerR> UnaClocker, Did you see the RetroPie image that was released?
[1:48] <UnaClocker> ParkerR: Was just about to download that.
[1:48] <ParkerR> Great emulation on ptretty much everything
[1:48] <ParkerR> I was impressed witht the genesis
[1:48] <ParkerR> *with
[1:48] <UnaClocker> My father gave my kids a dead Sega with like 6 controllers, and 10 games. I got it to kind of work with some resoldering.. Finally said screw it, I know a better way.. ;)
[1:48] <ParkerR> UnaClocker, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=STN260k9BEQ
[1:49] <UnaClocker> Yeah, the Genesis emulator: http://sourceforge.net/news/?group_id=227519 was just re-written with ARM assembly to maximize accuracy/performance.
[1:50] <ParkerR> Yeah it's pretty amazing
[1:50] <ParkerR> Not quite full frame rate but very playable
[1:51] <nopslide> does the rpi go through certifications? such as usb 2.0 certification? (im assuming not, if you can't hot plug devices into it)
[1:52] <ParkerR> nopslide, You can hotplug devices...
[1:52] <nopslide> in rev2?
[1:52] <ParkerR> Yes
[1:52] <plugwash> I belive the Pi only went through the legally required certification
[1:52] <plugwash> and USB certification is not legally required
[1:52] <nopslide> intresting, last year the devs were saying it wasn't possible when the polyfuses were changed out
[1:52] <retrosenator> i need 640x480.. what hdmi_mode is that?

[1:53] <nopslide> im quite familiar with usb hubs

[1:53] <Viper-7> retrosenator: group 2 mode 4 ?
[1:53] <UnaClocker> I'm quite familiar with trolls.
[1:54] <nopslide> my question is only if it actually goes through certification
[1:54] <UnaClocker> No, it's a $35 toy.
[1:54] <defiantredpill> lol
[1:54] <retrosenator> Viper-7:: ok.. how did you find that? is there a reference?
[1:54] <nopslide> well, for a 'toy', we manage to build a hell of a lot on it.
[1:54] <Viper-7> retrosenator: the link i gave before
[1:54] <Viper-7> http://elinux.org/RPiconfig
[1:55] <plugwash> Lets put it this way I never heard any reports of the Pi going through USB certification and i'm pretty sure it wouldn't pass if it did.
[1:55] <UnaClocker> nopslide: Indeed, much like Lego's..
[1:55] <nopslide> thats all i was curious about if we deploying thousands of them, these are the questions that get asked.

[2:06] <retrosenator> the screen is very corrupted and almost impossible to read as well
[2:07] <ParkerR> Hmm
[2:07] <ParkerR> Can you not go any higher in res?
[2:07] <retrosenator> it flickers a lot and has noise on it

[2:08] <UnaClocker> That's always blurry and sucks.
[2:08] <retrosenator> because it shows DLP texas instruments on top of the other stuff
[2:08] <retrosenator> no hdmi
[2:08] <ParkerR> Most projectors are low res but support displaying higjher resolutions
[2:08] <ParkerR> *higher
[2:08] <retrosenator> let me see
[2:08] <ParkerR> Oh no HDMI
[2:08] <ParkerR> Not sure how to set the res of composite output
[2:08] <retrosenator> it is hdmi
[2:08] <ParkerR> I thought you just said "no HMDI"
[2:09] <Aivaras> You can't set resolution for composite

[2:10] <ParkerR> Thought you were saying it didnt have HDMI
[2:10] <retrosenator> yeah I know sorry
[2:10] <retrosenator> wow, so does it internally stretch to the native resolution?
[2:11] <retrosenator> 800x600 seems to wwork as well, but still has the same problem

[2:14] <Viper-7> retrosenator: disable overscan ? try hdmi_boost ?

[2:14] <Viper-7> retrosenator: did you try the hdmi_safe mode?
[2:14] <pronto> Aivaras: disclaimer: i have almost zero idea what i'm doing with gnuplot, only got it working via googlethings
[2:14] <retrosenator> then I could login on tty2 and get the network working since I cannot ping it
[2:14] <retrosenator> hdmi_safe is the same
[2:15] <Viper-7> Use "safe mode" settings to try to boot with maximum hdmi compatibility. This is the same as the combination of: hdmi_force_hotplug=1, config_hdmi_boost=4, hdmi_group=2, hdmi_mode=4, disable_overscan=0
[2:15] <Viper-7> yeah, should be the same as what youve tried already
[2:15] <retrosenator> I did that first, and it gives a picture but flickers a lot and has noise through it
[2:15] <retrosenator> maybe the projector is bad too.. but I doubt it would work at all
[2:15] <Viper-7> how long is the hdmi cable?
[2:15] <retrosenator> .5 meters
[2:15] <Viper-7> hmm :/
[2:16] <retrosenator> is there a way to force the console size to be smaller?
[2:16] <retrosenator> I can only see the upper left part so the instal program is really hard to use (on top of the flickering and corrupted pixels)

[2:20] <retrosenator> no its username pi :(
[2:20] <Viper-7> why do you care about setting the password?
[2:20] <Viper-7> thats standard, login with pi, password raspberry, then sudo for root tasks
[2:21] <retrosenator> so I can get the network working so I can use it headless
[2:22] <Viper-7> the standard login works over network
[2:22] <Viper-7> pi/raspberry
[2:22] <Viper-7> ssh
[2:22] <retrosenator> yes but the network isnt working
[2:22] <retrosenator> anyway I got it heh, sudo passwd
[2:23] <Viper-7> i never even plugged a display into mine
[2:23] <retrosenator> I can just very barely read anything
[2:23] <Viper-7> just a network cable, checked the dhcp leases to find its ip, then ssh`ed in
[2:23] <retrosenator> but you have dhcp
[2:23] <retrosenator> I would have to run a server or something
[2:23] <Viper-7> thats not hard
[2:23] <retrosenator> plus I dont think my ethernet cable actually works
[2:23] <Viper-7> dhcp is nice and simple
[2:23] <retrosenator> I know.. silly excuse heh
[2:24] <retrosenator> yeah I could try it
[2:24] <Viper-7> well just try it, plug the cable between your pc and the pi, see if it lights up

[2:44] <Shaan> i am using terminal
[2:44] <clear`> and the keys are screwed, hmm
[2:45] <john_f> that is a keyboard layout issue, maybe you have the uk layout
[2:45] <ParkerR> Shaan, sudo dpkg-reconfigure keyboard-configuration
[2:46] <john_f> aka keymap
[2:47] <ParkerR> Shaan, Use that to set the keyboard layout. Just setting the locale doesnt set keyboard

[3:08] <Shaan> followed it already doesnt work
[3:10] <ParkerR> Shaan, Do you have X running?
[3:10] <Aivaras> just log temperature to file every x minutes from crontab, command is "vcgencmd measure_temp", I don't know how to get only value from that.
[3:11] <Shaan> no
[3:11] <Shaan> ParkerR: no

[3:20] <Aivaras> I have computer and pi in range from router max 3M, While pinging from PC to pi - latecy is from 6ms (witch is good) to 200ms(with is terrebly bad) why is that?
[3:21] <Aivaras> average - 90ms
[3:21] <Shaan> all i see is no dhcp offers received
[3:21] <pa1983> could it be the usb hub again?
[3:21] <pa1983> usb subsystem on the pi seems to have latency problems, migth be related
[3:22] <Shaan> is it possible its because i got the wifi adapter wnd keyboard plugged in same time ??

[3:37] <pa1983> Any way there shuld be a guide for your distro
[3:37] <hybr1d8> If you run the command 'iwconfig' it should say if the interface is associated to any access point

[3:45] <Torikun> compiling horrible on pi
[3:45] <pa1983> good package manager, reliable etc
[3:45] <Torikun> i got a stage 4 hosted on my site pa1983
[3:45] <Torikun> you can save a few hours by copying it to sd card

[3:51] <Shaan> i tried it this is soo weird

[3:56] <Shaan> ok
[3:56] <pa1983> you basicly have two files to edit to config the wlan card
[3:56] <Shaan> lets try
[3:56] <pa1983> similar to how I did it in gentoo
[3:56] <pa1983> make sure you know you accesspoint, if it uses WPA2 etc
[3:57] <pa1983> you know the name of your interface. that differs to on wlans

[3:59] <Shaan> i assume so
[4:00] <pa1983> I also had to specefy a driver for the wlan, usualy in gnetoo I dont know why its not in that guide cant see that it would differ from distro to distro unless they assume it can auto detect it but acording to gentoo manual thats not always the case
[4:00] <pa1983> what dose it way when you run sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart
[4:01] <pa1983> assuming you have don all the configuring
[4:02] <pa1983> do you know your ssid of you accesspoint to?

[4:20] <pa1983> Shaan, I would try this.

[4:34] <Coburn> yeah
[4:34] <Tachyon`> sd cards do fail, particularly when bought from ebay
[4:35] <ldionmarcil> yeah thats what I did
[4:35] <Coburn> ...Sandisk Ultra Class 10 *GB
[4:35] <Tachyon`> sandisk card
[4:35] <ldionmarcil> how much are those?
[4:35] <Coburn> most of the time
[4:35] <Tachyon`> not too bad
[4:35] <ldionmarcil> last I paid for was like 4$
[4:35] <Tachyon`> but you do want at least class 10
[4:35] <ldionmarcil> I'd rather quality this time
[4:35] <Coburn> nongenuine
[4:35] <Coburn> over 50% of the sandisk cards are fake

[5:54] <SStrife> but it's not how they're supposed to work
[5:54] <ldionmarcil> why do people mention it on the peripehrical list then?
[5:54] <SStrife> because it's possible to power Pi using those hubs, so you don't need an extra cable from the hub's "out" to the Pi's power connector
[5:55] <SStrife> it just saves you a cable
[5:55] <ldionmarcil> so backfeeding = powers the pi?
[5:55] <SStrife> yeah
[5:55] <SStrife> through the Pi's USB ports.
[5:55] <ldionmarcil> so then it's good!
[5:55] <SStrife> for most cases, yeah, i think so
[5:56] <SwK> crappy usb hubs either backfeed power, or they keep trying to power devices plugged into them via the RPi's power bus when they shouldnt
[5:56] <ldionmarcil> I see
[5:56] <SStrife> yeah, a "good" usb hub shouldn't do it
[5:57] <ldionmarcil> but in the pi's case, we want that
[5:57] <SStrife> but it can be handy, and it doesn't usually negatively affect the operation of the Pi,
[5:57] <ldionmarcil> so for the peripherical list
[5:57] <ldionmarcil> " Powers the pi quite well, 4.85V across TP1&2 during idle and load. The PSU for the hub is a 2.5A 5v made in china. Seems solid. Does backfeed the mini USB port "
[5:57] <ldionmarcil> this is something I would be intesreted into ^ right?
[5:57] <SwK> I have my pi drawing power from the same hub i'm using for other devices being driven by the pi
[5:58] <SStrife> I remember something about Pi's polyfuses, I don't know whether that was to do with powering it thru the USB host ports or not.
[5:58] <SStrife> yeah, it's a pain in that circumstance.
[5:58] <shiftplusone> 4.85v is a bit on the low side, but should still work.
[5:58] <shiftplusone> I would aim for closer to 5v though.
[5:58] <Datalink> SuperLag, it's a 3TB hard drive sitting next to me, this is a case of physical hardware, not 'lol hlp me pwn some doob' or however the kids are saying it these days.
[5:59] <ldionmarcil> heh well this is the only "verified" one I could find that shipped to canada for less than 40 bucks
[5:59] <ldionmarcil> I guess I'll skip
[5:59] <SStrife> I power Pi through the GPIO header, personally. I don't like using the micro USB port for power cycling

[6:00] <SStrife> technically i power it via Gertboard, which is connected to the GPIO header ;)
[6:00] <SwK> I might have to try a LiPo at some point

[6:02] * ldionmarcil (~user@unaffiliated/maden) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[6:02] <SwK> SStrife: I found a good 10Ah battery thats works good
[6:02] <SwK> SStrife: but its a little large for my application heh
[6:02] <SStrife> nice
[6:03] <SStrife> there a good high-capacity LiPo batteries available from remote-control car places like Hobby King
[6:03] <SStrife> are*
[6:03] <SwK> http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B009USAJCC/
[6:03] <SStrife> but they are only 3ish volts, I think.
[6:03] <shiftplusone> I am too lazy to do it myself right now, but I would pay about $5 for a small board with a barrel jack that takes about 7-20v and gives the pi a nice 5v supply through gpio, while still exposing the gpio pins for other purposes as well.
[6:03] <SwK> thats the one I have now??? 3A @5vdc max out, and only $40
[6:03] <retrosenator> SStrife:: buck regulator?
[6:04] <retrosenator> I have a 10ah 30v battery..
[6:04] <retrosenator> but my main bank is 800ah at 12 volts heh
[6:04] <SwK> shiftplusone: lol the board would probably cost that much to produce in short runs
[6:04] <SStrife> that amazon one looks good, it has the DC-DC converter built in
[6:04] <SStrife> a buck module could be the ticket
[6:04] <shiftplusone> SwK, I am hoping the Chinese are here.
[6:05] <retrosenator> there are $3 ones that can do 3 amps
[6:05] * ukscone (~Adium@cpe-24-193-113-179.nyc.res.rr.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[6:05] <retrosenator> also they make $1 ones for usb that give 5 volts from up to 30
[6:05] <shiftplusone> SwK, for a more realistic price of about $10-$15, I would do it myself, heh.
[6:05] <SwK> I get about 10 hours outta this one
[6:06] <retrosenator> then put a solar panel on it for unlimited runtime heh
[6:06] <SStrife> going from higher voltages to 5 is easy to do cheaply, since there are nearly-1-chip switchmode PSU designs available
[6:07] <shiftplusone> Speaking of which. I need to get 6v from 5v in a cheap way =/

[6:45] <retrosenator> just once
[6:45] <retrosenator> right at power up then never again
[6:45] <shiftplusone> that smells like a badly imaged or incompatible sdcard... or just dust in the connector.
[6:45] <retrosenator> I did the exact same as before
[6:46] <retrosenator> it was working then I expanded the partition and it quit working so I had to reimage
[6:46] <shiftplusone> Are you 100% sure you're imaging the whole disk and not just one partition?

[6:47] <retrosenator> I used the same file before
[6:47] <retrosenator> and it worked

[6:51] <retrosenator> it was starting to work :-/
[6:51] <shiftplusone> 'starting to work'?
[6:51] <retrosenator> I mean I had wifi going and stuff
[6:51] <retrosenator> I was installing stuff
[6:51] <shiftplusone> Ah, before the reflash. That doesn't count.
[6:51] <retrosenator> but I gues you have to reboot right after expanding or it breaks it
[6:52] <retrosenator> then reflashing is not very lucky heh

[6:53] <retrosenator> can you use a usb adapter?
[6:53] <shiftplusone> I mean on your pc, not the pi
[6:53] <shiftplusone> (to flash the card)
[6:53] <retrosenator> its built in but I think it actually is usb internally
[6:54] <shiftplusone> should be fine then. I was thinking maybe it's one of those cheap adapters which randomly disconnect and are unreliable.
[6:54] <retrosenator> right
[6:55] <retrosenator> still the same
[6:55] <retrosenator> green flashes once then its just red
[6:56] <retrosenator> hmm
[6:56] <shiftplusone> retrosenator, I had a pi which was a bit dodgy. It would read one of my sd cards fine every time, but the other would need to be reinserted 20 times before it would boot.

[6:57] <retrosenator> and I removed and inserted the card like 15 times because I was modifying scripts
[6:57] <shiftplusone> I am grasping at straws here!
[6:57] <retrosenator> yeah
[6:58] <retrosenator> I found another sd card its only 4g though not 16
[7:03] <shiftplusone> any luck with the 4gb card?
[7:03] <retrosenator> still flashing
[7:03] <retrosenator> i think its slow
[7:05] <retrosenator> hmm still going...
[7:05] <shiftplusone> how long did the other card take to flash?
[7:05] <retrosenator> ok good
[7:05] <retrosenator> twice as long
[7:06] <retrosenator> 4.6MB/s (from dd)
[7:06] <retrosenator> instead of 9 or whatever
[7:06] <retrosenator> the 16gb card is cheap and old
[7:06] <retrosenator> this one is much newer maybe thats why
[7:06] <shiftplusone> Was just trying to make sure it wasn't quietly failing halfway through somehow.
[7:07] * mdim (~user@c-98-202-219-86.hsd1.ut.comcast.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[7:07] <retrosenator> yeah, could have actually
[7:08] <shiftplusone> Also, I actually don't think that modifying the partition table and trying to write to the partition before you resize the filesystem would just corrupt the whole thing like that. It sounds more like you possibly have a failing sdcard.
[7:08] <retrosenator> yeah perhaps
[7:08] <retrosenator> I have another one just like it I got the same time
[7:08] <retrosenator> like 4 years ago

[7:31] <shiftplusone> Is that the one with the cutout for a gpio cable which doesn't actually fit a header through it? >=/
[7:31] <sadbox> shiftplusone: Both of them are like that
[7:32] <sadbox> (I prefer that style, personally)
[7:32] <shiftplusone> Is it stupid by design and they expect people to take the cable apart before passing it through or what?
[7:32] <sadbox> Though, I ordred it before I knew about the pibow... probably would have gotten one of those instead
[7:33] <sadbox> shiftplusone: wait, what? The slot is fully open when the top of the case is off
[7:34] <shiftplusone> I am talking about the adafruit one with the cutout for access to the GPIO.
[7:34] <sadbox> lemme check
[7:34] <shiftplusone> I have one like that, but I am not sure if it's "the pi house" or the adafruit case.
[7:35] <sadbox> shiftplusone: http://adafruit.com/products/859
[7:35] <sadbox> I ordred that one
[7:35] <shiftplusone> Either way, I am not happy with the acrylic cases I have tried. The pi rattles in them (mine doesn't have mounting holes) and they just seem poorly designed.

[7:49] <Scriven> xiambax, machining would be cool too, another skill to learn.

[8:05] <retrosenator> does it have to go thru usb?
[8:05] <retrosenator> well how else can you interface memory?
[8:05] <xiambax> On an RPI?
[8:06] <xiambax> http://elinux.org/RPi_Performance#USB_bus
[8:06] <xiambax> peaks 31mbs
[8:06] <xiambax> so it is a little faster.
[8:06] <xiambax> Theoretical 60mbs
[8:07] <retrosenator> my problem isnt speed but reliability
[8:07] <retrosenator> the cards tend to go bad after a while
[8:07] <retrosenator> especially if you use swap on them
[8:08] <xiambax> Cost wise, Once you start adding ssd and all that other jazz the rpi might not be best suited for your purpose.
[8:09] * tensory (~tensory@ has joined #raspberrypi
[8:09] <Tachyon`> I tried adding a small 1.8" HDD
[8:09] <Tachyon`> but the power requirements are too high
[8:09] <Tachyon`> an SSD would be far better in that respect at least
[8:10] <shiftplusone> xiambax, thanks for the link earlier. Looks like some class 4 cards are faster than some class 10 cards, but the overall pattern is that class 10 are much faster. Thanks for clearing that up.
[8:10] <Tachyon`> (also, 1.8" drives are the same size as the pi
[8:10] <Tachyon`> don't buy kingston
[8:10] <Tachyon`> their speed really suffers on small files
[8:10] <Tachyon`> also, the c asings are prone to disintegration
[8:11] <Tachyon`> although maybe not on the pi so much, but on anything where you have to push teh card to eject it, they don't like that at all
[8:11] <xiambax> I wonder if anyone has implemented this on any of the rpi distros http://wiki.maemo.org/Swap_on_microSD
[8:11] <xiambax> "Swappiness is a kernel parameter which tells it how aggressively to swap. The more aggressive it is, more RAM is freed, but there is a performance impact, because more data needs to be swapped (written to the slower drive). "
[8:11] <Tachyon`> ah, asn't aware of that
[8:12] <shiftplusone> as far as I know, the default raspbian swapiness is something like 1 or 3
[8:12] <tapout> so it's either OpenELEC or Raspbmc? i'm installing raspbmc.. just wondering if there are others
[8:12] <shiftplusone> tapout, you can also just install xbmc on the distro of your choice, but it may be tricky, I don't know. Haven't tried.
[8:13] <tapout> my uncle is blind.. i'm hoping they have text to audio in xbmc so I can get this guy poking around and listening to his favorite programs
[8:14] <Tachyon`> you don't need to configure microsd for swapping
[8:14] <Tachyon`> as it already does swap on SD
[8:14] <Tachyon`> creates a 100MiB swapfile by default
[8:14] * xcadaverx (~xcadaverx@ip68-7-21-228.sd.sd.cox.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[8:14] <shiftplusone> raspbian does? O_o
[8:14] <Tachyon`> a swap partition avoids the potential problem of swapfile fragmentation (which is a seperate problem to swapspace fragmentation mentioned on that page)
[8:14] <Tachyon`> aye
[8:14] <shiftplusone> ah, good
[8:15] <xiambax> try both, its really easy to flash distros
[8:15] <retrosenator> cant you also have multiple swaps with different priority?
[8:15] <xiambax> see which one you like
[8:15] <retrosenator> I guess it always fills the highest priority swap first
[8:15] <shiftplusone> explains why they made sure swapiness was set low by default as well.
[8:15] <xiambax> I installed 4 distros on my laptop the other day
[8:16] * Eliatrope (~speckius@ Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[8:16] <xcadaverx> i'm confused here. I'm running arch linux ARM trying to over clock my rpi. I've edited /boot/config.txt and uncommented the arguments i wanted (modest settings.). after reboot, cat /proc/cpuinfo shows 450mips (weird???not even 700.) and /sys/devices/system/..../scaling_cur_freq still shows 70000. does arch control this differently?
[8:16] <Tachyon`> MIPS != MHz
[8:16] <xcadaverx> alright, is there another way i can check to ensure the settings too effect?
[8:16] <shiftplusone> also check the scaling governor
[8:16] <Tachyon`> it depends on a lot of things, primarily the architecture
[8:17] * Eliatrope (~speckius@ has joined #raspberrypi
[8:17] <xcadaverx> "cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_cur_freq" returns "700000"
[8:17] <xcadaverx> took effect*
[8:17] <shiftplusone> What's the scaling governor though?
[8:18] <xcadaverx> how can i check that?
[8:19] <shiftplusone> Have a read of this https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/CPU_Frequency_Scaling
[8:19] <Tachyon`> I'd like to know why my new 512MB pi occasionally boots with no USB working
[8:19] <shiftplusone> Tachyon`, because you ordered from RS? =P
[8:19] <retrosenator> does the stock kernel have i2c support?
[8:19] <Tachyon`> I didn't though
[8:19] <Tachyon`> it's from CPC
[8:19] <xcadaverx> argh, i really have to check and set a governor to see if config.txt options took effect?
[8:20] <xcadaverx> that seems, odd.
[8:20] <shiftplusone> Tachyon`, rule out any obvious software issues and send it back anyway.
[8:20] <shiftplusone> xcadaverx, you probably don't have to. I am sure it took affect, it's just the way that I would check. I am sure there are other ways.

[8:30] <retrosenator> can the pi monitor its own power usage?

[8:33] <tensory> is that the idiom in RPi.GPIO for a pin being set low?
[8:34] <tensory> or pulled low by input
[8:34] <SwK> tensory: probably biasing the input high, then the button is pulling it low

[8:41] <factor> Looks like a simple switch to set address port.
[8:41] <factor> three ports.
[8:41] <factor> like a jumper
[8:42] <factor> normally they are set to low or gnd for the first port.
[8:42] <tensory> SwK: that one's helpful as well
[8:43] * N0_Named_Guy (~Someone@a89-153-113-53.cpe.netcabo.pt) Quit (Ping timeout: 260 seconds)
[8:44] <factor> looks like the chip has two 8 bits ports.
[8:45] <factor> But looking at the microchip data it sets the port number for i2c
[8:45] <factor> not the chip ports
[8:45] <SwK> factor: yeah??? I know what it does, but i wasnt familiar with the symbol
[8:45] <factor> so will be related to the driver port you specify to send it to , i imagine
[8:46] <factor> ok
[8:46] <SwK> I think i just figured it out tho??? the symbol looks like it might actually match up to a solder bridge heh
[8:46] <SwK> like here http://www.rapidtables.com/electric/solder-bridge.htm
[8:46] <factor> yes that as well like a jumper
[8:46] <factor> hardcoded jumper
[8:46] <SwK> but 2 way solder bridge, tie it high or low
[8:47] <shiftplusone> Hmm, good to know. Haven't stumbled upon that symbol before.

[8:51] <factor> SwK: also a kicad channel on freenode , its a linux program for schematics, they have libraries of those symbols
[8:53] <tapout> wow there is like ZERO lag on a movie with the raspberry pi, i wonder how an mkv will play, trying
[8:55] <SwK> factor: i dont use linux on the desktop

[8:56] <tapout> OMG , this is so damn great
[8:56] * gordonDrogon waves... rainy morning here.
[8:56] <tapout> is it better to have a USB drive or feed some shows off the class 10 card? is it able to move more bits on usb vs the card?
[8:56] <shiftplusone> hey
[8:57] <shiftplusone> tapout, usb is a little faster, yes.
[8:57] <Xark> tapout: Probably USB will be faster.
[8:58] <tapout> what about network vs usb?
[8:59] <gordonDrogon> you should be able to stream at ~20MB/sec from a local card which is plenty fast enough.
[8:59] <gordonDrogon> network will be 10MB/sec max. (100Mb Ethernet).
[8:59] <tapout> for some reason my mouse doens't work in raspbmc, anyone else have that?
[8:59] <gordonDrogon> which is also more than fast enough...

[9:00] <shiftplusone> around 30MB/sec peak I think
[9:00] <shiftplusone> just a guess though, so... double check.
[9:01] <tapout> won't this burn out the raspberry pi tho? running a media machine from it 24/7 ?

[9:01] <shiftplusone> tapout, does your mobile burn out running android 24/7?
[9:01] <shiftplusone> (it certainly shouldn't)
[9:02] <tapout> no but i saw the temps reported.. 135F .. and stuff
[9:02] <shiftplusone> What's that in real currency?
[9:02] <SwK> factor: I'm not sorry about it???. until they have the apps I require, its not worth the pain of rebooting or dealing with virtualization all the time
[9:02] <gordonDrogon> yea, ugh. multiply by 5, divide by 9, take away your shoe size.
[9:03] <shiftplusone> just checked, that's around 57 degrees. That's far from 'hot' for an arm chip.
[9:03] <shiftplusone> Start worrying if it's over 70
[9:03] * gordonDrogon nods.
[9:03] <factor> Swk: Microchip stuff pretty much works on Linux now.
[9:03] <shiftplusone> at 85 (by default, but adjustable) the firmware turns off all overclocking to cool it down.
[9:04] <gordonDrogon> breakfast time I think.... omlet today!
[9:04] <shiftplusone> And without overclocking you're not going to get anywhere near 80.
[9:05] <SwK> factor: yeah but photoshop doesnt, nor does any reasonable exchange client, nor does MS Office (and no the alternatives are not the same)
[9:05] <factor> Gimpshop does , it uses photoshop plugins as well and looks like it

[9:56] <SStrife> for web browsing and stuff, it whomps Pi, understandably
[9:56] <SStrife> but i do have a few complaints
[9:56] <SStrife> the gpio headers have the same pitch as the IDE connectors on 2.5" HDDs
[9:56] <Xark> SStrife: What OS are you running?
[9:56] <SStrife> so I can't use my regular-sized jumper straps and stuff
[9:57] <Xark> SStrife: Hmm, that is mildly annoying...
[9:57] <SStrife> Just the standard ubuntu image from Berryboot
[9:57] <SStrife> 12.04 i think, not the latest, but the repo is reasonably complete.
[9:58] <Xark> SStrife: Does it have any video support under Linux?
[9:58] <gordonDrogon> bit o fan odd size, but ...
[9:58] <SStrife> It's flaky...
[9:58] <SStrife> the Mali400 GPU isn't well supported in Linux from what I can tell
[9:58] <Xark> SStrife: Right.
[9:58] <jelly1> luckily the RPi GPU isn't too :D
[9:59] <SStrife> The RPi's GPU has some support though, you can run Quake 3 on it
[9:59] <jelly1> SStrife: yes but other then that it's useless, but the foundation isn't the blame it's the weak company's
[10:00] <jelly1> </rant>
[10:00] <mgottschlag> you should be able to run q3a on quake, too :)
[10:00] <mgottschlag> eh
[10:00] <mgottschlag> on mali
[10:00] <SStrife> yes yes! i agree with both those things, helly1 and mgottschlag
[10:00] <SStrife> jelly1 even
[10:00] <mgottschlag> both should provide proper gles2
[10:00] <jelly1> we miss some codecs
[10:00] <jelly1> and the RPC API is just silly
[10:00] <SStrife> i can't find a generic gles2 version of quake3
[10:00] <jelly1> but it's also unqiue that broadcom released it
[10:01] <SStrife> the foundation's one is hardcoded to use the broadcom stuff in /opt

[10:01] <jelly1> shiftplusone: haha
[10:01] <jelly1> i dunno
[10:01] <mgottschlag> the lima people are much more advanced than we are with the videocore - if you want to help us, https://github.com/hermanhermitage/videocoreiv/wiki/VideoCore-IV-Programmers-Manual :)
[10:01] <SStrife> Android runs really nicely, but that's because there's vendor support because the Mali400 is in so many phones
[10:01] <jelly1> shiftplusone: well it's an arm issue
[10:01] <mgottschlag> anyways, bbl
[10:01] <jelly1> shiftplusone: on normal desktops you can accel any codec
[10:03] <shiftplusone> https://github.com/hermanhermitage/videocoreiv/wiki/VideoCore-IV-Programmers-Manual is amazing, yeah. I do hope you get more capable people coming aboard.

[10:11] <steve_rox> not available in uk
[10:11] <SStrife> and to catch out people trying to export them from china, to stop chinese sellers undercutting element14/rs
[10:11] <steve_rox> no CE stamp

[10:14] <shiftplusone> I regret modding it though. Should've kept it stock for when it's worth millions

[10:16] <shiftplusone> just removed the polyfuses and linked the pads =(
[10:17] <shiftplusone> not even any fancy mod, just what they ended up doing later anyway.
[10:17] <SStrife> haha, dang.
[10:18] <SStrife> both of mine have toasty ethernet chip syndrome too
[10:18] * gordonDrogon nods.

[10:18] <shiftplusone> Isn't the ethernet chip always toasty?
[10:18] <gordonDrogon> pobblebeads.
[10:18] <gordonDrogon> there is a small wiring error on the Rev 1 boards to do with the ether/usb chip
[10:19] <SStrife> on some units, the ethernet chip overheats and causes all sorts of mis-behaviour
[10:19] <SStrife> that.
[10:19] <shiftplusone> O_o first time I am hearing of it, heh.
[10:19] <gordonDrogon> it has an internal 3.3v regulator - with an external pin which was supposed to have a decoupling capacitor fitted..
[10:19] <gordonDrogon> however they mis-read it and connected it to the Pi's own 3.3v line..
[10:20] <gordonDrogon> so on some, when it generates a higher 3.3v than the Pi's it ends up supplying more 3.3v, so gets hotter.
[10:20] <shiftplusone> ah ok
[10:20] <gordonDrogon> not sure if it was fixed on the 1.1, but it's foxed on the rev 2's.
[10:20] <gordonDrogon> er, fixed :)
[10:21] <shiftplusone> Yeah, I decyphered that. I didn't think that they were trying to fox it.

[10:40] <retrosenator> the regulator
[10:41] <gordonDrogon> oh.
[10:41] <gordonDrogon> Yes. it is.
[10:41] <gordonDrogon> However an SMPS regulator would have added to the cost - which was a big factor.
[10:42] <retrosenator> aren't there ones which are under $1?
[10:42] <gordonDrogon> people have used 5v and 3.3v SMPS units to power their Pi's - and they do save a few mW. Good for battery operation.
[10:42] <retrosenator> I guess you need caps too
[10:42] <gordonDrogon> and an inductor :)
[10:42] <retrosenator> right
[10:42] <gordonDrogon> and board space.
[10:43] <retrosenator> yeah of course not everyone wants everything and everyone wants things that there aren't
[10:44] <gordonDrogon> quite a few projects doing it - e.g. first google hit: http://hackaday.com/2012/07/07/another-switch-mode-regulator-swap-for-the-raspberry-pi/
[10:44] <gordonDrogon> retrosenator, you can please some of the people some of the time, etc. :)
[10:45] <retrosenator> well I'm still trying to figure out why 90% of the time I can't boot into ad-hoc mode using the debian network script...
[10:45] <gordonDrogon> no idea - I don't use Wi-Fi
[10:45] <retrosenator> its like it doesn't know it has to ifconfig wlan0 down; iwconfig wlan0 mode ad-hoc; ifconfig wlan0 up
[10:45] <retrosenator> yeah I have no alternative to wifi
[10:46] <retrosenator> at the moment anyway.. eventually I'll try to get a serial cable and ethernet
[10:46] <gordonDrogon> why ad-hoc and not infrastructure?
[10:48] <retrosenator> what is infrastructure?
[10:48] <retrosenator> does that require access points?
[10:48] <retrosenator> like mode managed?
[10:48] <gordonDrogon> standard client to an access point
[10:48] <retrosenator> yeah I'm trying to do figure out hostap actually that may work for me
[10:48] <retrosenator> ad-hoc is just simpler
[10:49] <SStrife> or spend like $19 on a TP-Link access point ;)
[10:49] <gordonDrogon> if you have an access point then it's not.
[10:49] <retrosenator> I can't just go buy stuff like that
[10:49] <retrosenator> I have to mail order it and it takes weeks
[10:49] <gordonDrogon> why not?
[10:49] <retrosenator> i'm in new zealand
[10:49] <gordonDrogon> you're in Brazil then?
[10:49] <gordonDrogon> Ah, probably just as bad.
[10:49] <SStrife> i never got ad-hoc working properly, barring Nintendo DS multiplayer...
[10:50] <retrosenator> they probably have it but it would cost $59 not $19
[10:50] <gordonDrogon> so you have Ethernet to your PC, then trying to bridge PC to Pi via Ad-Hoc Wi-Fi ?
[10:50] <retrosenator> ad-hoc works great
[10:50] <retrosenator> evene masquerading so the pi goes ad-hoc to the netbook then that gets online
[10:50] <retrosenator> just isn't working with the debian scripts
[10:50] <retrosenator> netbook has 2 wifi devices
[10:51] <retrosenator> there is no ethernet anywhere heh
[10:51] <gordonDrogon> just run an Ethernte cable from the netbook to the Pi?
[10:51] <retrosenator> I don't have one
[10:51] <gordonDrogon> no cable?
[10:51] <retrosenator> the one I have dosn't work
[10:51] <SStrife> that is something I enjoy about gigabit ethernet, if not for the speed, then just for the abolition of crossover cables...
[10:52] <retrosenator> yeah well.. it even autonegotiates I think
[10:52] <SStrife> thats what i mean
[10:52] <gordonDrogon> yea, but it's been a long-time since I needed an x-cable on 10/100. I think the Pi is auto too.
[10:52] <SStrife> :)
[10:52] <retrosenator> but yeah no cable no good
[10:52] <retrosenator> and my splice tool completely rusted
[10:52] <gordonDrogon> go & buy one?
[10:52] <gordonDrogon> no local shops at all?
[10:52] <retrosenator> yeah possible to buy for $20
[10:53] <retrosenator> but its almost midnight so they aren't open.. maybe tomorrow
[10:53] <retrosenator> and if you are wondering why I can't just have the pi connect to the access point the netbook uses...
[10:53] <retrosenator> I need a special long range hookup to even get internet at all
[10:53] <retrosenator> so I only have one of those
[10:54] <gordonDrogon> your internet comes in via Wi-Fi ?
[10:54] <retrosenator> yes
[10:54] <retrosenator> hence the need for two wifi devices one to get internet the other for the pi
[10:54] <gordonDrogon> ok. no real issues - the pick-up will be a client bridge with ethernet? If so, then connect it to a local router & use that.
[10:55] <gordonDrogon> I ran a Wi-Fi broadband setup like that for abou 300 people onceuponatime...
[10:55] <retrosenator> I have a buffalo router...
[10:55] <gordonDrogon> most people just connected their 1 PC to the bridge, but some bought routers off us, or used their own
[10:55] <retrosenator> I think it has tomato on it
[10:55] * gordonDrogon nods.
[10:56] <retrosenator> anyway I forget the config and it needs ethernet to configure it anyway
[10:56] <SStrife> I wish i could get dd-wrt or tomato for my Airport Extreme

[12:12] <retrosenator> what if someone hypothetically put two wifi cards in and broadcast as a free wifi network
[12:13] <retrosenator> then relaying all the data, and manipulating things so that any ssl certificats get "repackaged" with a new cert allowing the rpi plain text view of the data
[12:13] <retrosenator> then hid this device in a public place like the top of a tree in a park powered by a small solar panel
[12:14] <gordonDrogon> retrosenator, it's possible - main issue is the single USB which is half duplex, but I know some people who are using as a router/firewall.
[12:14] <retrosenator> ok, so the bandwidth is limited
[12:14] <SStrife> without being trusted by everybody you intended to impersonate, users would receive "Certificate does not match host name" and or "Certificate not issued by trusted issuer"
[12:14] <gordonDrogon> retrosenator, that hack with the ssl's isn't as possible as you might think. clients would detect the man-in-the-middle attack with ssl.

[12:16] <retrosenator> I know I've had to click yes.. and this is especially true when its free wifi.. you figure you have to do whatever it takes to gain access and people all do

[13:24] <ivotkl> Hahaha.
[13:25] <ivotkl> Here I go: I have a bit of a concern about my Pi order. I ordered it on Monday Feb 4th, around 1-2 a.m. UK time. I cannot track it and have not received e-mail that package has left rsdelivers dispatch.
[13:25] <ivotkl> Order said dispatch expected within a week...
[13:25] <gordonDrogon> ivotkl, RS? Hm.
[13:25] <DDave> ivotkl, send an email to them, expect a reply in 2-3 working days
[13:26] <code-guru> then you should contact RS
[13:26] <DDave> My email actually arrived the day I got my rpi in the mail.. :D
[13:26] <ParkerR> code-guru, For a lot of people this is very early in the morning
[13:26] <gordonDrogon> I ordered a Pi at about 2pm on a Friday - 3 weeks ago and got it the following morning (saturday). Farnell.
[13:26] <gordonDrogon> ParkerR, in the UK it's lunchtime :)
[13:26] <gordonDrogon> ish.
[13:26] <ivotkl> Will do. Thanks. gordonDrogon and DDave.

[13:32] <Viper-7> RS have issues
[13:33] <Viper-7> apparently they dont do tracking at all on Pi orders, and can leave people hanging for months, unless you call and hassle them out

[13:34] <ivotkl> But I called DHL here and was told that with number I was given I could track it once package is in their hands.
[13:35] <ivotkl> Maybe I should've bought it from the US instead...
[13:36] <gordonDrogon> maybe you should have bought a big box of them to resell locally...
[13:37] <Viper-7> when i ordered RS claimed they had stock, yet when i called them after a month they said it was waiting on backorder. called them back the next day they said they had plenty of stock, and it was already on its way. the next day it was held up at customs, the next day it their stock was moving between warehouses and hadnt been dispatched to me yet, the next day it arrived
[13:37] <Viper-7> funny how it takes more than 1 day to get here from their local office, and how it arrived 4 days after i started calling and hassling them
[13:37] <ivotkl> gordonDrogon, Hahahaha. Nah, not really. I've thought about it, but here we have customs things...

[13:38] <Viper-7> so basically, everything they told me was a lie, from the initial stock report on their website, to every word out of their staff`s mouth
[13:38] <ivotkl> xD
[13:38] <Viper-7> i`ll certainly never be dealing with them again
[13:39] <Viper-7> btw, a friend ordered one from element 14 two days after i ordered mine

[13:40] <nid0> delivery costs to argentina may vary though

[16:26] <gordonDrogon> kgee, if you want to use shell or C then I did a library for them.
[16:27] <kgee> gordonDrogon: Neat. All the software has been python-ified, and I'm more comfortable with C (although depending on the level of python support, the ease of python might make this not true)
[16:27] <gordonDrogon> kgee, cd ; git clone git://git.drogon.net/wiringPi ; cd wiringPi ; ./build
[16:27] <gordonDrogon> will get you started.
[16:28] <kgee> Also, each relay is rated for over 200v @ 10A, but the documentation says don't exceed 20v @ 5A. Which is true?
[16:28] <kgee> thank!

[16:28] <gordonDrogon> kgee, the documentation - it's to do with safety and pcb track width/thickness.
[16:28] <gordonDrogon> you'll need to do gpio load spi after making wiringPi too.
[16:28] <gordonDrogon> unless you already have the spi driver loaded.
[16:29] <kgee> okay. Good to know. I didnt want to take chances, but now I certainly won't risk it/

[16:29] <gordonDrogon> I'd not personally put mains through it myself though, even if it is capable!
[16:29] <gordonDrogon> it's just a bit too close to the Pi to stick 230V ..
[16:29] <gordonDrogon> for my personal liking...
[16:29] <kgee> yeah, I'm currently updating my little arch linux install. I'm low on space since I havent extended the partition to fill hte card yet, so that's probably the next step

[16:31] <Hopsy> haha
[16:31] <kgee> even then, some of the larger servos draw over 10A, so I'll have to look out. Troublesome, since most of the store info describes the number of turns in the coil rather than voltage/current draw, which I think is pretty dumb

[16:41] <gordonDrogon> so while it has 8 outs and 8 in's you might want to use e.g. the I2C or SPI for some sensors, etc.
[16:41] <gordonDrogon> especially if you want speed control of the motors and not just on/off.
[16:42] <pksato> Hopsy: and, have a low cost AP on market to do it.
[16:42] <kgee> gordonDrogon: already considered that to a degree. While I agree that it's not optimal, I'm not beyond putting multiple pi's on board. I've been working on some networking/clustering projects, and if I want to do computer vision applications I might need the extra CPU/GPU power anyway
[16:42] <gordonDrogon> some of those motors look like chinese fireworks! e.g. http://www.rcplanet.com/Traxxas_Stinger_Motor_p/tra1275.htm
[16:43] <gordonDrogon> kgee, sure - the Pi is fine - just maybe not the PiFace, but if you have several...

[17:57] <gordonDrogon> catcher, what you will need to do is 'bias' the pin to +3.3v so that it's not floating when the switch isn't pushed. you can do this with the internal pull-up resistors.
[17:57] <Hopsy> you gave me yesterday
[17:57] <catcher> gordonDrogon, so that means the pin needs 3.3v normally, and flipping the switch will..

[17:58] <catcher> gordonDrogon, so then hitting the switch will open it, disconnecting it from 0v, right?

[18:00] <catcher> gordonDrogon, I almost get it, but how does opening the connection from the pin to 0v cause the pin to drop to 0v?

[18:03] <gordonDrogon> catcher, if you connect the NC pin to the gpio, then the gpio reads 0 when the switch is not pushed. When youpush the switch it opens and if you have a pull-up resistor then it reads 1.

[18:04] <catcher> gordonDrogon, click, it makes sense. thank you for explaining.
[18:05] <catcher> gordonDrogon, and I can use an internal pull-up resistor instead of wiring one externally?
[18:06] <gordonDrogon> catcher, that's what they're there for. Some people don't like to use them though.
[18:06] <catcher> gordonDrogon, this is a set-it-and-forget-it project, so I won't be accidentally switching input to output.
[18:08] <catcher> gordonDrogon, last Q for now, just to understand - if I were wiring my own pull up resistor, I'd then also need a connection to 3.3V so the pin has a logical 1 when the circuit is open, is that right?

[18:48] <dshep> b0ot: it can do what your wifi router can do, in other words.. provide a wireless access point for other devices to connect to
[18:49] <catcher> b0ot, you'll be able to access your webserver just fine, but it won't be a wireless access point.
[18:50] <catcher> b0ot, if you're behind a router and you want to access your server from the outside world, you'll have to forward the port you want (default 80) to the Pi's IP.

[19:21] <mpmc> Anyone here in the UK having issues receiving satellite from 28e atm?
[19:21] <swiftos> swart: thx
[19:23] <gordonDrogon> Hi.
[19:24] <gordonDrogon> swiftos, the Pi can't do slave SPI, only Master.
[19:24] <swiftos> gordonDrogon: I can't program some GPIO to act as SPI slave ? like standard gpio ?
[19:25] <gordonDrogon> swiftos, you could, but you'd need to poll the clock pins - it wouldn't be fast.
[19:25] <gordonDrogon> there is only hardware support for the designated pins in master mode.
[19:25] * MichaelC|Sleep is now known as MichaelC
[19:26] <swiftos> gordonDrogon: ok, didn't know that was by polling. I was thinking perhaps it can throw a event on clock change
[19:26] <gordonDrogon> you can - and you could throw it at an interrupt too.
[19:26] * _ember (~ember@static-188-137-76-93.leon.com.pl) has joined #raspberrypi

[19:27] <gordonDrogon> however it's still all being done in software.
[19:27] <swiftos> okay, so my goal is tu emulate a 104Mhz SPI flash
[19:28] <gordonDrogon> that's not going to happen.
[19:28] <gordonDrogon> even with the hardware SPI port, the max. clock is 32MHz.
[19:28] <swiftos> oh shit
[19:28] <swiftos> ok
[19:28] <gordonDrogon> polling the GPIO is limited to 20MHz too.
[19:28] <swart> swiftos: pls check topic
[19:28] <gordonDrogon> swiftos, *cough* family friendly channel...
[19:28] <swiftos> sorry
[19:29] <gordonDrogon> if you want a 104MHz SPI device, then you might need to go & buy one...
[19:30] <swiftos> i've already one, don't know if 104Mhz is used on the device, but that the capacity of the flash
[19:31] <gordonDrogon> they can usually be clocked much slower.
[19:31] <gordonDrogon> so you could test it using the Pi as a master.
[19:31] <swiftos> but i need a device that can change frequently the chip content
[19:32] <swiftos> it's for a device that has a spi flash chip that store the firmware

[19:38] <Scriven> Is there any good general place to learn about spi i2c? for instance, can there be multiple masters on each bus? Am thinking about interfacing with a touch screen, but it uses i2c or serial to communicate.
[19:38] <gordonDrogon> well it's essentially a 40MHz chip, but you can read the 2 halves in parallel, so you need 2 inputs.
[19:38] <gordonDrogon> Scriven, I2C and SPI are 2 separate things..
[19:38] <Scriven> gordonDrogon, yes, meant to put a / in there
[19:38] <gordonDrogon> Scriven, no - they're 2 physically different things.
[19:38] <swiftos> gordonDrogon: exactly, and with a specific read command, the input became output
[19:39] <gordonDrogon> Scriven, your touchscreen will use I2C only.
[19:39] <Scriven> touchscreen CAN use i2c and serial, but not spi.
[19:39] <gordonDrogon> swiftos, it probably need some specific hardware to interface to.
[19:39] <swiftos> but even, it's 40Mhz
[19:39] <Scriven> but I'm ignorant of spi too, so also wondered if there's a place to learn the basics of it too.
[19:39] <gordonDrogon> Scriven, right. So you need I2C.
[19:39] <Scriven> Can there be multiple masters on an I2c bus?
[19:40] <gordonDrogon> Scriven, https://projects.drogon.net/understanding-spi-on-the-raspberry-pi/
[19:40] <tdy> 1 master, 1+ slaves
[19:40] <gordonDrogon> Scriven, yes, you can have multiple masters, but the Pi can only be a master device, not a slave.
[19:40] <gordonDrogon> I've not yet written a page like that for I2C though, but I've written a library for it.
[19:40] <gordonDrogon> spi is one master only.
[19:40] <Scriven> can masters be programmed to talk to each other as masters, or will one need to be able to slave? And in this specific case, the screen will need to be able to slave?
[19:41] <tdy> maybe i'm confused.. what's the relationship between i2c and smbus then?
[19:41] <gordonDrogon> Scriven, no - a master can only talk to a slave.
[19:41] <Scriven> bah. :(
[19:41] <gordonDrogon> tdy, smbus is a newer protocol invented by intel - it's mostly i2c compatible.
[19:41] <swart> tdy smbus is a subset of i2c designed by intel - check wikipedia
[19:41] <Scriven> serial it is then.
[19:41] <tdy> oh
[19:41] <gordonDrogon> Scriven, if you want to read a touchscreen using I2C then it's perfectly possible.
[19:42] <gordonDrogon> I have a device that's doing just that.
[19:42] <mgottschlag> smbus is 99% compatible though, just like TWI
[19:42] <mgottschlag> (afaik, that is what I was told)
[19:42] <Scriven> gordonDrogon, yeah, I was just wondering about the specific interface I wanted to use, am not sure if it can be put into slave mode, or if doing that also removes features I wanted to use.
[19:42] <Scriven> one of the 4d systems ulcd screens.
[19:42] <gordonDrogon> Scriven, the only one I have used is always in slave mode.
[19:43] <gordonDrogon> oh, do you get access to the touchscreen interface on those?
[19:43] <gordonDrogon> I thought they were serial only...
[19:43] <Scriven> am not sure, on a few steep learning curves at once.
[19:43] <gordonDrogon> I think they're serial only.
[19:43] <Scriven> they're apparently both i2c and serial, serial-mode they just send back results of their own interaction.
[19:44] <gordonDrogon> I've only used visi genie on those displays though.
[19:44] <gordonDrogon> and that's very high level in serial mode.

[22:01] <gordonDrogon> Scriven, hi..
[22:01] <gordonDrogon> Scriven, no - but since when has the Pi been used multi-user...
[22:01] <gordonDrogon> lets face it, 90% of Pi people treat it like a microcontroller IME.
[22:02] <IT_Sean> Mine 'll be running xbmc
[22:02] <gordonDrogon> not that I agree with that, but you might as well make it easy. The gpio program changes the ownership of the spi & i2c devices to the person using it...
[22:02] <swart> also hardware-level interfacing - usually people build a stack to help deal with user applications
[22:02] <gordonDrogon> IT_Sean, so a single-user 'pc' then :)
[22:02] <IT_Sean> Aye
[22:02] <Torikun> your better off buying the small WD player than the raspberry PI

[22:24] <piney0> it might
[22:24] <piney0> worth checking

[22:33] <Primer> I have no idea what openelec is
[22:33] <|Jeroen|> openelec is an media center with xbmc
[22:33] <IT_Sean> openelec is an xbmc distro for the pi
[22:33] <|Jeroen|> its great if you only need xbmc
[22:33] <Primer> although there are libcec1 and libcec2 packages
[22:34] <Primer> but their descriptions...
[22:34] <Primer> USB CEC Adaptor communication Library (shared library)
[22:34] <Primer> libcec2 is installed, and I'm hoping it was pulled in as a dependency of xbmc

[22:40] <nid0> any remote will do
[22:40] <Quietlyawesome94> Interesting
[22:40] <nid0> CEC sends signals over the hdmi port, if you turn the tv to turn off itll tell any cec connected device to also turn off, it doesnt matter *how* you tell the tv to switch off
[22:41] <Quietlyawesome94> The Wii U controller can control most controls on a TV
[22:41] <Quietlyawesome94> I should hook my Pi up and see if it'll do anything with the Wii U controller

[23:09] <swart> or supplies
[23:09] <john_f> Torikun: if they are on the same subnet you can add them to a bridge interface, if not use nat which is mostly just a few iptables rules

[23:12] <swart> hi
[23:13] <john_f> Torikun: that doesn't make it permanent
[23:13] <swart> I have some darlington arrays on order so maybe I don't really need a gertboard immediately
[23:13] <john_f> well later on, but taht is distro specific
[23:13] <gordonDrogon> swart, what do you want to know?
[23:13] <swart> does the Gertboard need its own 5V power or does it get it from the pi?

[23:14] <swart> I was thinking of some 12V motors
[23:15] <gordonDrogon> swart, you can drive them off the darlingtons.
[23:15] <gordonDrogon> there is a separate common supply for that.

[23:16] * D481A3 (~pi@ has joined #raspberrypi
[23:16] <gordonDrogon> is PS = PSU, then make your own from batteries? You'll need a 5v regulator of some kind.

[23:18] <swart> I think I have some old laptop batteries I can use :)
[23:18] <swart> then I need to think about a charging circuit :p
[23:18] <gordonDrogon> you might want to look at an SMPS type DC to DC converter.
[23:19] <swart> I think I've seen some tutorials for that
[23:20] <swart> they use a microcontroller to generate high voltages?
