[1:50] <applegekko> use the drive
[1:50] <applegekko> not the sd card
[1:50] <dfrey> brotoss: Are you running the sftp client on the pi or on another computer?
[1:50] <jacekowski> dfrey: i2c is very simple to use even without any libraries
[1:50] <jacekowski> dfrey: it's like 3 ioctls in total
[1:51] <brotoss> dfrey:i ssh into the pi via terminal on my mac, then run sftp from there
[1:51] <brotoss> i can see it now it downloaded to the sd card
[1:51] <dfrey> brotoss: Then it sounds like you just need to "cd" into the directory that you want to download into before issuing the sftp commands
[1:52] <brotoss> dfrey: ohh that sounds about right, thanks I am very new with linux
[1:53] <dfrey> brotoss: also, you can issue "help" from the sftp client and it will tell you that there is a "lcd" command inside sftp which can be used to change the local directory.
[1:53] <dfrey> brotoss: also, Tempest OP
[1:53] <brotoss> dfrey: awesome, and yes ;)

[3:34] <pycoderf> hi all. will overclocking to 1ghz without chnging voltage void warranty or kill the life on the pi?
[3:34] <Scriven> https://ext4.wiki.kernel.org/index.php/Ext4_Howto
[3:34] <Scriven> brotoss, short form: # mkfs.ext4 /dev/DEV
[3:34] <Scriven> followed by: # mount -t ext4 /dev/DEV /wherever
[3:35] <Scriven> # means "perform this action as root user", so you could use sudo as well.
[3:35] <brotoss> awesome thanks yeah i was looking at that but couldnt grasp it
[3:35] <Scriven> mkfs is the usual 'format' program in linux. /dev/DEV is the place your external device shows up as when plugged in.
[3:36] <Scriven> please note, if you pick the wrong /dev you will probably format things you didn't want formatted, so be sure you have the correct device!
[3:36] <brotoss> will do!! thanks for the help
[3:37] <Scriven> yw, good luck! I recommend doing some basic 'how to use linux' reading too, it'll help you get around the command line 'stuff'. :)

[7:14] <SStrife> that's the kicker with this thing
[7:14] <ShiftPlusOne> 'course it wouldn't
[7:14] <ShiftPlusOne> the model b uses about 350mA iirc
[7:14] <SStrife> i have gertboard attached, and a few bits and bobs attached to its atmega
[7:14] <StubbornTurtle> http://www.eevblog.com/forum/reviews/klein-tools-mm200-multimeter/
[7:15] <SStrife> running nfsroot
[7:15] <SStrife> i was surprised it uses that much
[7:15] <ShiftPlusOne> SStrife, how much did it use?
[7:15] <SStrife> 750mA is peak too
[7:15] <SStrife> while booting it shoots up somewhere near there
[7:16] <SStrife> normally, ah, 400ish?
[7:16] <StubbornTurtle> Viper-7: I recognized your name from over in #php (just made the connection; no electronics pun-intended)
[7:16] <SStrife> it fluctuates a lot with CPU usage
[7:16] <SStrife> so there's that, and once you throw on a USB keyboard, mouse, and wifi, it's no wonder it's crashing with 1A phone chargers.
[7:17] * Ben64 (~Ben64@cpe-72-130-61-113.socal.res.rr.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[7:17] <ShiftPlusOne> SStrife, don't forget the polyfuse. On my pi it's a 750mA one
[7:17] <SStrife> yea, that too
[7:17] * ssvb (~ssvb@ has joined #raspberrypi
[7:17] <ShiftPlusOne> I don't know how quick that reacts, so maybe the peaks don't affect it though.
[7:18] <SStrife> it's just a device with resistance related to heat,
[7:18] <SStrife> so short bursts of over 750mA should theoretically be ok
[7:18] <ShiftPlusOne> I always used to say that the polyfuse is responsible for the pi resetting when a usb device is plugged in.
[7:18] <ShiftPlusOne> Turns out I am wrong on that one.
[7:19] <SStrife> the polyfuse wouldn't make it reboot, I don't think, you have to let it cool down for a while before it will work again
[7:19] <SStrife> reboots would be voltage sags
[7:20] <SStrife> because crappy power supplies aren't linear over their load range
[7:20] <ShiftPlusOne> yeah, I didn't think it through before saying that since the rev2 came out to every noob that would ask about it on here >.> (oops)
[7:20] <SStrife> hehe
[7:22] <piney> some cheap usb chargers don't have a capacitor on the output side too. i think their theory is a usb phone charger is for charging, and cheaping out on a capacitor can be fine if connected to a battery and save them quite a bit in the long run
[7:22] <SStrife> which is why the Apple ones are better... they aren't cheap.
[7:23] <SStrife> more expensive isn't always better, but when it comes to any kind of power supply...
[7:23] <piney> i won't own it just cause it's an apple product :)
[7:23] <SStrife> that's dumb.

[7:30] <StubbornTurtle> Is C the primary language for using the GPIO on the Pi?
[7:31] <ShiftPlusOne> What do you mean by primary language?
[7:31] <StubbornTurtle> most commonly used or recommended?
[7:31] <piney> i would say the defacto would be python, but any language is acceptable basically
[7:31] <StubbornTurtle> The example on this page looks like it has some sort of C files attached (http://elinux.org/RPi_Tutorial_EGHS:LED_output)
[7:31] <ShiftPlusOne> I thinkt he official recommended language is python
[7:31] <ShiftPlusOne> I would stick to C though, but I like C.
[7:31] <StubbornTurtle> Oh good, python is great :)
[7:32] <ShiftPlusOne> check the ladyada pi tutorials then. IIRC they are python based
[7:32] <ShiftPlusOne> *adafruit
[7:32] <ShiftPlusOne> http://learn.adafruit.com/category/raspberry-pi
[7:32] <rikkib> Interpreted languages are way different to a real language (C)...
[7:33] <piney> C is too high level even. asm for life! (not really)
[7:34] <rikkib> asm requires a much deeper understanding of hardware
[7:34] <StubbornTurtle> ShiftPlusOne: Google figured out ladyada
[7:34] <piney> which really helps when it comes time to debugging
[7:34] <StubbornTurtle> even though I had no idea you meant adafruit (which I've actually heard of)
[7:34] <Scriven> Um, SStrife Some of us don't own apple products because of their child labour choices.... hardly dumb I think...
[7:34] <ShiftPlusOne> same thing/person
[7:34] <rikkib> Usually only the people who deal with abstraction write in asm
[7:35] <Scriven> the brand is their marker, so we avoid their marker because it marks them as uncaring crapheads.
[7:35] <StubbornTurtle> Do I need to look out for if tutorials are for rev 1 vs 2?
[7:35] <ShiftPlusOne> I appreciate your very forced effort to avoid profanity there =)
[7:36] <Scriven> thank you.
[7:36] <Scriven> it was hard.
[7:36] <Scriven> StubbornTurtle, well, that depends. Some of the GPIO stuff is slightly different, yes.
[7:36] <Scriven> but for software-only I don't see why you would need to differentiate.
[7:36] <ShiftPlusOne> you probably have a rev2, but you can use rev1 tutorials if you adjust for the differences
[7:36] <StubbornTurtle> Scriven: Got it. I'm look at GPIO stuff here (http://learn.adafruit.com/adafruits-raspberry-pi-lesson-4-gpio-setup/the-gpio-connector), but I found the raspberry pi leaf printout which describes the rev 2 pins
[7:36] <Scriven> StubbornTurtle, you can cat /proc/cpuinfo and look for the rev number in there to be sure.
[7:37] <Scriven> yeah, the leaf HAS 2 versions. Just printed one out today for my rev 1.
[7:37] <ShiftPlusOne> careful though, ithe 'revision' shown by cpuinfo is not the actual revision.
[7:37] <Scriven> the elinux site has the correct pin-outs available for both versions.

[7:44] <Viper-7> check for usb polyfuses
[7:44] <ShiftPlusOne> Scriven, it's very unlikely that that cpuinfo is wrong.
[7:44] <Scriven> ok, so is there a reliable picture I can use?
[7:44] <ShiftPlusOne> heh... though polyfuses are actually not any more accurate
[7:44] <Scriven> and now I'm getting 2 opposite things being said. :P
[7:45] <ShiftPlusOne> since there are rev1 boards without polyfuses
[7:45] <Scriven> so is it reliable or not? And if not, what is? And if it's polyfuses, is there a clear picture of what they look like?
[7:45] <Viper-7> (but places for them)
[7:45] <Viper-7> rev2 boards dont have them
[7:45] <Scriven> my cpuinfo says what I thought was true, Model B, Rev 1, 256.
[7:45] <Scriven> so I never bothered to look for the polyfuses....

[7:55] <ShiftPlusOne> again, depends on your router, you may have to specify a domain like raspberrypi.home or raspberrypi.local or whatever your router is set to or uses.
[7:56] <Scriven> hrm, ok now I'm really confused.
[7:56] <Scriven> cause my pis are rev 00...002, but appear to have polyfuses?
[7:56] <ShiftPlusOne> there's always avahi, but I don't know anything about that
[7:56] <ShiftPlusOne> Scriven, what does cpuinfo say?
[7:56] <Scriven> 0000002 or whatever.
[7:57] <ShiftPlusOne> then it's a rev1
[7:57] <ShiftPlusOne> it's clearly a rev1
[7:57] <Scriven> Revision : 0002
[7:57] <ShiftPlusOne> nothing to be confused about
[7:57] <ShiftPlusOne> http://www.raspberrypi-spy.co.uk/2012/09/checking-your-raspberry-pi-board-version/
[7:57] <Scriven> didn't think rev 1 had polyfuses?
[7:57] <ShiftPlusOne> they had polyfuses which were later removed
[7:57] <Scriven> AH, ok.
[7:58] <Scriven> had that backwards!

[8:02] <ShiftPlusOne> I stuck stickers on my old keyboard and everything
[8:03] <Scriven> my dvorak-fu is rusty, cause yeah I had hardware problems and had to keep switching. I can still type it.

[8:03] <Scriven> hyperair, lol! 100+ wpm in both IIRC.
[8:03] <ShiftPlusOne> tried it twice and went back to qwerty
[8:03] <hyperair> i switched the keys around on my zen powerlogic q200
[8:03] <Scriven> didn't need to switch for speed, wanted to get faster than the fast I already was.
[8:03] <hyperair> Scriven: eh really? that's nice.

[8:13] <hyperair> heh the crossbar banjo thing is what the wirewrapped stuff looks like after you're done
[8:13] <hyperair> like plugwash mentioned, you need the wire-wrap wire as well

[8:16] <StubbornTurtle> Does wiring to the GPIO pins need to be done while the Pi is off?

[8:27] <Scriven> rikkib, I think the commute from Vancouver to NZ would be a killer tho.
[8:27] <Viper-7> floppy ones are (and its obvious), ide isnt
[8:28] <rikkib> haha
[8:28] <Scriven> yeah, the floppy twist is obvious, thought there was something more subtle about IDE.
[8:28] <rikkib> Beware IDE cables
[8:28] <Scriven> what about 80-pin would they work?
[8:28] <rikkib> test before using...Some have pins shorted
[8:28] * ShiftPlusOne has used an IDE and a floppy cable just fine.
[8:28] <rikkib> I think
[8:29] <ShiftPlusOne> Just test the pins first to make sure you're connecting what you think you're connecting

[8:49] <ShiftPlusOne> double check that there are no shorts and the pins are where you think they are.

[8:50] <StubbornTurtle> I see no missing pins...
[8:51] <Viper-7> it`ll likely be a missing conductor in the crimp fitting on the end of the cable, or might not be there at all (if the cable is ancient enough to not support CS)
[8:51] <Scriven> StubbornTurtle, some cables actually had a little bit cut out, I think that's what Viper-7 is referring to.
[8:51] <Viper-7> yup
[8:51] <Viper-7> either a chunk missing from the cable between the master and slave connectors, or a missing pin on the slave connector

[8:58] <StubbornTurtle> So, I guess my question, to clarify, is will the GPIO pins be outputting voltages and such already
[8:58] <ShiftPlusOne> Connect to mains and do the lick test. Alternatively use your multimeter. If it has a continuity test use that, otherwise just measure the resistance. Then there's also the common sense approach, but I don't trust it.
[8:58] <gordonDrogon> and so on - right up to pin 26.
[8:58] <StubbornTurtle> or do I need to run a program to make a pin "hot"
[8:59] <gordonDrogon> yes. you need to run a program to change the input/outputmode of a pin.

[9:21] <StubbornTurtle> I found a couple of LEDs lying around. Do I need to know the specs of the LEDs to know what resistor to use?
[9:22] <ShiftPlusOne> yes, but nuh, not really.

[9:23] <Tachyon`> somethign around 420R? I dunno, lol
[9:23] <Tachyon`> it's not that critical as long as there's something of a vaguely correct value there
[9:24] * dualhbridge (~dad@cpe-76-179-210-181.maine.res.rr.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[9:24] <ShiftPlusOne> I'd be more paranoid about drawing too much from the pin.
[9:24] <StubbornTurtle> So I should use multiple resistors?
[9:24] <StubbornTurtle> I've got some 270 ohm resistors handy it appears
[9:25] <StubbornTurtle> and red and green LEDs with what appear to be large diffusers
[9:25] <ShiftPlusOne> StubbornTurtle, find yourself a tutorial and stick to it
[9:26] <StubbornTurtle> following this one (http://learn.adafruit.com/raspberry-pi-e-mail-notifier-using-leds/wire-leds)
[9:27] <ShiftPlusOne> but yes, you'll need a resistor for each led, though there are different way to hook it up, but stick to the basics.
[9:28] <Tachyon`> (or a resistor per few LEDs if you want to go with a common ground or something, although there are limitations with that approach... plus resistors are cheap)
[9:28] <StubbornTurtle> It recommends between 330 ohm and 1000 ohm for each, so I could use 2 270ohms in series to effectively do the same, correct?
[9:29] <Tachyon`> yes
[9:29] <Tachyon`> but tbh 270 will probably do
[9:29] <Tachyon`> there is some margin for error
[9:29] <plugwash> 270 ohm will result in about 5ma through the LEDs which is well within the safe range for most LEDs
[9:29] <plugwash> (assuming a LED forward votlage of 2V and a voltage at the IO pin of 3.3V)
[9:30] * Tachyon` growls
[9:30] <Tachyon`> yes, you too can plan your project for 5v, then receive the gertboard and realise both the pi and that are all bloody 3.3
[9:31] <plugwash> mmm, the buffer design on the gertboard leaves a lot ot be desired IMO
[9:32] <Tachyon`> hrm?
[9:32] <plugwash> primeraly using buffers from the same chip for input and output
[9:32] <Tachyon`> tbh I'll likely use the AVR for most of it
[9:33] <plugwash> which means you can't supply those buffers from different voltages
[9:33] <plugwash> honestly if you have a modicum of electronics experiance I wouldn't bother with the gertboard at all
[9:33] <Tachyon`> only a modicum, I'm mostly a programmer, got into a bit of electronics in recent years but I'm by no means an expert, heh
[9:34] <plugwash> quick tip, if you want to go from 3.3V to 5V use 74HCT, if you want to go from 5V to 3.3V use 74LVC
[9:34] <Tachyon`> I tried to do the electronics course on MITx last year but was defeated half way through by the maths
[9:34] <Tachyon`> ahh
[9:35] <StubbornTurtle> here we go: breadboard: http://cl.ly/image/2i0w1L2W3n0s
[9:35] <StubbornTurtle> Pi: http://cl.ly/image/3T3k2e3A1c0k
[9:35] <Tachyon`> so I could just put the output through a couple of inverters on a 74HCT and get a 5v
[9:35] <Tachyon`> how fast
[9:35] <Tachyon`> say doing serial data would it break down if the data transfer exceeded a particular speed? I have no idea of the limits of those chips
[9:35] <Tachyon`> 5 to 3.3 is easy enough, two resistors, lol
[9:36] <Tachyon`> but the 3.3 to 5 was looking like a problem

[9:40] <plugwash> how fast you can go depends a bit on what assumptions your circuit makes about timing but HCT is probablly ok to 20MHz or so in such applications
[9:40] <plugwash> If you need faster there is 74VHCT.............
[9:40] <Tachyon`> oh wow
[9:40] <Tachyon`> 20MHz is way more than I'd ever need, was just wondering, lol

[9:42] <Tachyon`> in case I wanted to use them for level convesion between 3.3v and 5v serial (my BBC interface drops the user port output down to 3.3 for SD use but just sends the 3.3 back assuming it's as good as a 1 o the user port (which it is, but it's not ideal))
[9:43] <Tachyon`> some cards work and some don't which suggests I might have bent things a bit far

[9:45] <plugwash> The problem is that the output of your voltage divider has a much higher source resistance than a normal logic gate
[9:45] <Tachyon`> although given someone at teh same college tried to claim the best way to slow down a program in a multitasking OS was with delay loops
[9:46] <plugwash> combine that with parasitic capacitances and that means longer transition times which limits the maximum speed you can run at reliablly

[10:37] <gordonDrogon> not chip specific - yet.
[10:37] <gordonDrogon> however I have plans to extend wiringPi with generic gpio devices.
[10:38] <gordonDrogon> so you'd write the driver for the device, then at run-time bind it into wiringPi, then you use the existing digitalWrite, etc. functions with the new pin numbers for that device.

[12:34] <gordonDrogon> or maybe the hubs PSU isn't as good as you think it is.
[12:35] <Walther> gordonDrogon: rated at 2A it should be able to power a single slim 2.5" usb hdd
[12:38] * Shaan7 (~quassel@kde/shantanu) has joined #raspberrypi
[12:39] <hellsing> the hdd is connected to the pi or the hub?
[12:40] <hellsing> i mean in the 2 cases it doenst work?
[12:40] <nid0> imo the smartest and cheapest way to do it would be to plug in your pi to use it as something else, and buy a decent nas such as a small synology box or if you want something a bit more diy, a microserver + freenas
[12:40] <Walther> hellsing: yep, it doesn't work reliably either way
[12:40] <Walther> as in, a powercycle every 5min or so
[12:41] <hellsing> can you monitore the voltage?
[12:41] <Walther> nid0: i've also considered building a server on my own... But that's going to be in the hundreds of euros range, whereas if I could reliably strap this usb hdd + pi together I'd have a no-additional-costs one
[12:42] <Walther> hellsing: nope, I don't have a multimeter available, the one i had went all wonky so i threw it away
[12:42] <Walther> (can't expect much from a ~10eur one)
[12:42] <nid0> the question really is how good you want this nas to be - even if you overcome your power cycling problem, the pi generally makes a pretty awful nas
[12:43] <nid0> whereas you can buy proper nas's for less than 200 euros
[12:43] * maethorechannen (~scot@ Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[12:43] <Walther> of course this would only be a project / testing one
[12:43] <hellsing> have you tryed with a power supply for the pi and another for the hub?
[12:44] <Walther> to see if I actually have use for a one :P
[12:44] <markedathome> Walther: not terribly difficult the problem tends to be ensuring reliabile mounting of the drive in the same place, or if using logical volumes etc across multiple disks ensuring they have the same ids.
[12:44] <Walther> hellsing: of course
[12:44] <hellsing> and?
[12:45] <Walther> But yeah, before even going to multiple disk setups or anything, i point out again that I currently can't reliably have even a single usb hdd plugged in
[12:45] * maethorechannen (~scot@ has joined #raspberrypi
[12:45] <Walther> hellsing: well, if it worked, I wouldn't be asking questions here :P
[12:45] <hellsing> so it an idle status to set i think
[12:46] <Walther> I've tried the following setups: usb hdd straight to pi, pi and hdd powered by a powered hub, pi powered separately and usb hdd powered by hub
[12:46] <hellsing> and each time the hdd go to sleep?
[12:46] <markedathome> Walther: what is the drive? and does lsusb -v give any indications as to what it thinks is the requirement for power?
[12:46] <Walther> in all three cases, there's a sudden powercycle
[12:47] <Walther> hellsing: Not really *sleep*, there's a split-second on-off on the hub and/or hdd, while writing
[12:47] <markedathome> any messages in kern.log, syslog, messages or dmesg?
[12:47] <markedathome> or is it just usb reset errors
[12:47] <Walther> No useful messages in logs, except for IO errors caused by the suddenly disconnected drive
[12:47] <Walther> markedathome: the drive is a previous-generation (usb2.0 only) lacie rikiki 2.5" slim 320gb
[12:48] <markedathome> does the drive remount in the same place ie, /dev/sdb -> /dev/sdb, or go /dev/sdb -> /dev/sdc
[12:48] <Walther> on a powercycle, it doesn't remount
[12:48] <Walther> i have to manually remount an/or reboot the pi
[12:49] <Walther> and*
[12:49] <Walther> and it only really happens while writing, not on idle
[12:49] <markedathome> the drive doesn't reappear? so a lsusb -t would show that it has dropped off the hub's port
[12:49] <Walther> or well, at least i have observed it only while writing
[12:50] <Walther> markedathome: not sure if it reappears in the usb devices, haven't really checked to be honest (at work now)
[12:50] <Walther> i might be suspecting that the pi's usb port manages to somehow fluctuate the power in the hub, even if the hub is powered externally

[12:51] * mpmc|Away is now known as mpmc
[12:52] <hellsing> no problem with another hdd?
[12:52] <markedathome> and it's a 2A into a 4 port (or 500mA provision per port from the power supply?), anything else plugged into the hub?
[12:53] <markedathome> walther: I had a similar setup in that a WD elements SE 2.5 plugged in would reboot the pi, and fail, on a powered hub it works fine.
[12:53] <markedathome> i have a pi 512mb chinese, whatever rev. that is.
[12:53] <Walther> i've got the original, model b rev1 256mb one without mounting holes
[12:53] <markedathome> made in china, not a red one.
[12:54] <Walther> and yeah, the hdd powercycles even if the hub has nothing else connected to it
[12:54] <Walther> but *only* if it is hosted on the pi
[12:55] <Walther> on other computers (my desktop, laptop) the hub and hdd work fine

[12:58] <markedathome> can you interrogate the drive with hdparm and or smartctl (from smartmontools) you may need to search to find the right command to specify the usb bridge.
[12:59] <markedathome> for my drive i have to specify a type 'sat' IIRC.

[13:46] <ngc0202> :(
[13:47] <ngc0202> it doesn't?
[13:47] <steve_rox> why would it?
[13:47] <LxKermit> not for 10 hours yet probably because im just about last on UPS route, but still funs
[13:47] <ngc0202> Why wouldn't it...
[13:47] <steve_rox> :-)
[13:47] <jelly1> ngc0202: why would it
[13:47] <mjr> hdmi input isn't really a common use case to spend circuitry (and money) on
[13:47] <ngc0202> I was relying on that for a project I was working on
[13:47] <mjr> especially for an el cheapo device
[13:47] <LxKermit> anyone worried about shorts with not having a case for rPi or do most of you just get at it without one?

[13:59] <steve_rox> i placed it next to where birds land
[13:59] <steve_rox> got some amazing shots
[14:00] <LxKermit> isnt it possible you could
[14:00] <steve_rox> one cheeky bird did land on my cam
[14:00] <LxKermit> add a sensor to the rPi and have your camera automagically take photos at any point that a certain object moves?
[14:01] <LxKermit> or am i thinking way above it's capabilities?
[14:01] <steve_rox> hmm
[14:01] <steve_rox> i did think of that idea allready
[14:01] <steve_rox> using a alarm pir motion detector
[14:02] <steve_rox> in theory should work
[14:02] <LxKermit> like even design code to pick out certain dimensions or colours that the object might be, which might require a lot of math though and a sensor more expensive than possible

[15:18] <FR^2> subv: Well, if it tells you it can't allocate memory necessary for that task, how about giving some information on your model (512MByte? 256MByte?) and the current mem config (gpu mem? swap? currently free mem?), information on your exact linux distribution and such could be helpful as well - otherwise no one will be able to help you

[15:23] <subv> I'm currently trying to figure out what my memory split is what should be optimal.. i also clocked it at 800hz
[15:23] <subv> mhz
[15:24] <Jck_true> subv: The prepackaged XBMC distroes sets the memory spliut for you so you don't have to mess with it
[15:25] <subv> i want the gpu to have 100MB as i have read its a good stable split... leaving me 412 for the system.. this should be enought to access my massive network shares right?
[15:26] <subv> let me try mounting the shares to a more exact location... perhaps its too much data before i get into my media files.
[15:26] * znode (~znode@ Quit (Remote host closed the connection)

[15:29] <IT_Sean> Indeed.
[15:29] <IT_Sean> I would do the same
[15:29] <Jck_true> subv: My best advice first is to maintain the stock xbian install (they set the memory split for you unless you have a really good reason i don't think you should change it)
[15:29] <IT_Sean> That's why i don't allow Windows machines onto my netowkr.
[15:29] <subv> ugh.... do i need to format my server and install slack or something :\
[15:30] <subv> just an old server i use... maybe freenas
[15:30] <IT_Sean> Are you sharing your media content to more than one device? or is it just going to the raspi?
[15:32] * znode (~znode@ has joined #raspberrypi
[15:32] <subv> well.. I have a workstation with 2TB drive on it running windows 7(sickbeard,sabnzbd,couchpotato).. this machine shared out my media to a laptop i have connected to the tv.. I been watching my media there. before the laptop i used to use boxee and before that tversity with my 360... so the shares are primarily accessed by whatever i have connected to my tv at the moment.
[15:33] * znode (~znode@ Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[15:33] <IT_Sean> Okay, so, it's just the one TV then. In that case, why not mount the media locally (i.e. plug the harddrive into whatever you have hooked to the TV, instead of sharing over the network)?

[15:35] <IT_Sean> you will need a powered hub or externally powered HD enclosure to plug a HD into the pi anyway
[15:35] <IT_Sean> the raspi's USB port will not power a harddrive.
[15:35] <IT_Sean> regardless of what power supply you are using for the pi.
[15:35] <subv> wait this 2TB drive has AC power
[15:36] <IT_Sean> DINGDINGDING!
[15:36] <subv> so it shouldn't hinder it much.. let me test

[15:38] <IT_Sean> lets not go there yet.
[15:38] <RaTTuS|BIG> ;-p
[15:38] <IT_Sean> Let's get his Pi working, and THEN break it.
[15:38] <IT_Sean> :p
[15:38] <subv> but still... i have sickbeard and sabnzbd automatically putting media into my HDD
[15:39] <Number5> Hello guys, Are there more guys having issues with webcam? It seems like RPi can't handle camera data over usb well. Often it suddenly stops, or it flickers. Anyway, it doesn't seem to work stable enough and it even crashed a few times. I've never had a Linux crashed on pc, so I got an "oops".
[15:39] <subv> so this will take some getting used to.. unless i can share the drive over the network and have windows save it to the HDD attached to the RPi?
[15:39] * Schadenfreude_ (~PoaAlpina@ has joined #raspberrypi
[15:40] <IT_Sean> subv: that would be slow. Networking on the Pi is less than quick.
[15:40] <IT_Sean> pastable, but slow.
[15:41] <Number5> I don't want to bash RPi, I really like it, but is it true that maybe it's too hard for RPi to handle webcams (and yes the webcams are powerd by a separate hub).
[15:41] <IT_Sean> Number5: depends on the webcam
[15:41] <mjr> the performance will probably not be stellar
[15:42] <Number5> I had an old small one with low resolution.
[15:42] <mjr> the csi camera will be an improvement for camera apps, but of course not yet
[15:42] <IT_Sean> that should be out soonish
[15:42] <Number5> csi cmaera? let me google it
[15:42] <subv> im thinking of dropping windows 7 and getting slackware or another one of my favorite flavors

[15:47] <subv> rid of windows!
[15:47] <Number5> My boss had SDXC card with 64 GB and tried to format it to FAT32, but Windows 7 refused, only exFAT and NTFS was possible. So I formatted on Linux with FAT32 and now it works on our mircocontroller based hardware which doesn't understand exFAT. -1 for Windows
[15:49] <Number5> (I wrote the SD interface voor our device and it just works with SDXC :P)
[15:49] <mjr> Yeah, windows has an artificial limit on fat size, they're just wanting to make you use one of the other filesystems, there's no technical reason
[15:49] <mjr> mind you, last I heard it can _use_ a larger fat fine, just not format
[15:49] <subv> i wish i could use a live linux .. but i need to install sickbeard and sabnzbd... if the system reboots a live run of linux won't save these extra apps...
[15:49] <subv> maybe slax live usb would work.. :\
[15:50] <Number5> mjr, they want us to pay for their exFAT license.

[15:52] <Number5> I mean it's like that
[15:53] <egrouse> subv you could always just make a live linux with sabnzbd and sickbeard installed?
[15:53] <egrouse> sabnzbd + sickbeard = ftw btw
[15:53] <egrouse> i love that stuff
[15:53] <egrouse> for all my public domain tv series ofc
[15:53] <mjr> making exfat the default for sdxc forces manufacturers into paying protection _or_ having to bother users with reformatting

[15:58] <subv> well i just watched a show with 5v 1amp
[15:58] <IT_Sean> 5v 1a is enough to run the pi

[16:06] <IT_Sean> That said, the Pi will auto-shutdown if it overheats. Don't worry about it though. It shouldn't need a cooler.
[16:06] <subv> referring to a cold beer.. and i will watch my words
[16:06] <IT_Sean> Ah, okay.
[16:06] <ShiftPlusOne> Actually, turns out it just turns off overclocking if it overheats

[16:07] <IT_Sean> really? my understanding was the SoC would shutdown above a set temp...
[16:07] <ShiftPlusOne> so it gets to 85c, turns off OC and cools down automagically.
[16:07] <bge> Assumed it was because of updates or something

[20:35] <gordonDrogon> smallfoot-, however better still, do some reading and you'll find that Debian is just as capable of doing what you want as Ubuntu is.
[20:36] <SwK> gordonDrogon: yeah ??? zero delay sorta works lol??? i might need to add a few microsecs of sleep in there heh??? ugly hack of q2w to monitor the matrix keypads is working (sorta lol)
[20:36] <smallfoot-> yeah, but Debian is not so easy to use as Ubuntu Server
[20:36] <mjr> on a positive note, I don't think an armv7 model is unlikely, given several years
[20:36] <smallfoot-> and Ubuntu Server much more easy to install, configure, set up, and has better commercial support

[20:38] <SwK> smallfoot-: the CPU on the RPi was never intended for phones/tablets??? its a set top SoC

[20:41] <smallfoot-> and wasn't Raspberry Pi meant for education, then why does it ship with non-free binary blobs and black box that cant be studied?
[20:41] <SwK> and where does ubuntu based on...
[20:42] <SwK> the RPi is not meant for teaching you the guts of the SoC??? its mean to teach entry level coding, and robotics
[20:42] <SwK> you dont need to know how the CPU drivers or how the video drivers work for that
[20:42] <SwK> you just need the ABI/APIs for that
[20:43] <smallfoot-> true, but surerly would have been nice if an educational device was more open and free and less of a mysterious blackbox
[20:43] <mjr> while the blob is a concern, indeed it isn't really an obstacle for the purpose

[20:44] <mjr> surely, but I can understand that they make do with what they can have while it's not actually possible to get much more open cheap chips
[20:44] <SwK> the fact is most people couldnt even understand the code in some of those drivers anyway
[20:44] <smallfoot-> well it prevents students from installing any distro and play with and learn, and instead they're forced to use a specially-purpose custom-built rpi distro
[20:44] <mjr> the blob isn't preventing that
[20:44] <SwK> ^^^
[20:45] <mjr> of forcing the use of raspbian
[20:45] <smallfoot-> well i cant install stock debian or stock ubuntu on it, i need raspbian
[20:45] <SwK> people run arch, fedora, debian, rasbpian and others
[20:45] <smallfoot-> they run debian? i thought they could only run raspbian
[20:45] <mjr> I already said stock debian armv4 will work, you'll just rather want raspbian
[20:45] <applegekko> http://elinux.org/RPi_Distributions
[20:46] <mjr> heck, stock debian was the first officially recommended distro anyway

[20:46] <smallfoot-> oh
[20:46] <DoWhileGeek> theres error codes on the wiki for 3 - 7 flashes, but not two
[20:46] <plugwash> The Pi needs a device specific kernel but that is the norm among arm boards due to lack of standardisation :(

[20:47] <plugwash> smallfoot-, debian has two arm ports, armel and armhf, debian armel will run on the Pi but is far from optimal for it. debian armhf has minimum CPU requirements too high to run on the Pi

[20:48] <mjr> If the pi's not up to your spec, whining about it isn't going to help. There are other small arm boards that should satisfy your needs, for a price anyway.
[20:48] <plugwash> raspbian takes debian armhf and lowers the minimum CPU requirement (which means recompiling everything :( ) so it will work on the Pi while keeping the hardfloat goodness

[20:53] <mjr> See the supported board list for ubuntu server for arm. I doubt they support very many boards out of the box (like you want it) due to said problems with arm platform standardization or lack thereof. You often need the custom kernel build and/or bootloader.

[21:00] <dmitri1> IT_Sean: i want to use rasp from my laptop with ssh, but as i understand to config ssh for example I need some display or tv.. etc
[21:00] <IT_Sean> You can edit the config file on the SD card to enable SSH
[21:00] <dmitri1> really?) it sounds amazing
[21:01] <dmitri1> why didn't think about it

[21:01] <IT_Sean> He can also get the IP address (internal) from his router, once the raspi is on then etwork and booted.
[21:01] <frikinz> or looking at your router if it keeps track of ip adress it gave

[21:41] <IT_Sean> It was a very expensive smell.
[21:42] <doomy> Hi guys
[21:42] <IT_Sean> I was evaluating firmware for a new prototype device... Had it powered up on my bench. Knocked a paperclip off the shelf above the tech bench... It landed perfectly, shorting 24v to 3.3v. FRAPOWFF!
[21:42] <Ose> so I can successfully SSH into my pi from my laptop on my home network. now how do I figure out how I get in over the internet?
[21:42] <doomy> I accidentally killed my console using SDL+EGL (blank screen + mouse pointer, which I can't move). Any way to retrieve it ?
[21:42] <IT_Sean> It was one of only two in existence, and was worth quite a bit. And i was two weeks on the job.

[21:55] <chod> then ssh to the external ip and port you just set
[21:55] <mjr> 22 is good if you only want to forward ssh to one box
[21:55] <chod> which then port forwards internally to the ip & port on your pi
[21:56] <Ose> do I pick tcp, udp, or tcp/udp?

[21:57] <DoWhileGeek> I dont know much about networks. When you port forward, do you just open up a port whily nilly, or do you open port on a specific ip?

[23:15] <Ose> chod: i'm an idiot when it comes to how networks work? the router asks for external/internal starting/ending ports. I don't know what those are supposed to be, I just know I want to use my browser to view what the pi shows on port 8000

[23:16] <gordonDrogon> SwK, checking..
[23:16] <Scriven> Ose, the 'external' port is the port you want to open for the outside world
[23:17] <Scriven> the inside port is your 8080 at the pi's ip.
[23:17] * BlueDreams (~matt@24-205-95-34.dhcp.psdn.ca.charter.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[23:17] <Scriven> they don't have to be the same.
[23:17] <Scriven> so you could forward port 12345 to 8080 if you want.
[23:17] * Tabaliah (~michael@protospace/member/Tabaliah) has joined #raspberrypi
[23:18] <Scriven> and they want starting/ending ports b/c the router can forward a range to 1 internal ip, or a range to a range.
[23:18] <Scriven> if you only want 1 port, just make start/end the same
[23:18] <Ose> 8080, not 8000?
[23:18] <SwK> gordonDrogon: notice the changing inputs on bits 5-7 in the output
[23:18] <Scriven> whichever you like. I missread it as 8080, but 8000 works too.
[23:18] <Scriven> The numbers are all up to you.
[23:18] <Ose> ok
[23:18] <Scriven> the easiest would be to forward 8000 external to 8000 internal pi ip.
[23:18] <gordonDrogon> SwK, ok... are they supposed to change?
[23:19] <Ose> well django wants to use 8000 by default, so i'll go with that
[23:19] * SwK (krice@freeswitch/developer/swk) has left #raspberrypi
[23:19] <Scriven> yup, but you can pick any outside port you want and still use 8000 internally, they are joined via the router itself.

[23:20] <Scriven> did you have the internal ip right? And is the pi listening on an external address, or localhost only?

[23:21] <Scriven> so gordonDrogon, if I wanted to blink physical pin 12 (gpio pin 18 IIRC), what are the CLI commands I should be using w/ gpio program?
[23:21] <Scriven> it works via wiringpi, but not via cli.
[23:21] <gordonDrogon> Scriven, gpio mode 1 out ; gpio write 1 1 ; gpio write 1 0

[23:22] <gordonDrogon> Scriven, how did you intialise wiringPi in your program?
[23:22] <Scriven> er, pin 1?
[23:22] <Scriven> will pastebin, hang on.
[23:22] <gordonDrogon> wiringPiSetup() or wiringPiSetupGpio() ?
[23:22] * KiltedPi (KiltedPi@host-89-242-176-124.as13285.net) Quit (Ping timeout: 256 seconds)
[23:22] <Ose> Scriven: the internal ip is definently correct, SSH works, using that IP. not sure about the second question, how do I check that?
[23:22] <_pash> hello guys
[23:22] <Scriven> Ose, check via WWW inside, not ssh.
[23:22] <Scriven> IE does http://ip:8000/ work?
[23:22] <_pash> i am trying to share my internet connection from my mac, but i am using a d-link dub-e100 and it doesnt work from mac, but only from linux
[23:22] <Ose> no
[23:23] <gordonDrogon> Scriven, wiringPiSetup() or wiringPiSetupGpio() ?
[23:23] <Ose> not on the pi
[23:23] <Scriven> yeah, i'd say that means the pi's www interface is listening on the loopback device and not the eth0/wlan0 device.
[23:23] <Scriven> GPIO.setmode(GPIO.BOARD)
[23:23] <Scriven> GPIO.setup(ledPin, GPIO.OUT )
[23:23] <Scriven> gordonDrogon, ^^^
[23:23] <Scriven> ledPin is set to 12.
[23:23] <gordonDrogon> that's python. Ive no idea.
[23:23] <Ose> I know some of these words
[23:24] <Ose> so I need to change some config thing on the pi?
[23:24] <Scriven> Ose, the way linux works w/ networking is that you have the program listen on a port via the device... but if the device is the 'local' machine, it basically means 'only listen here to myself'
[23:24] <gordonDrogon> Scriven, where have you physically connected the wire?
[23:24] <Guest10197> _pash, how is your Mac connected to the net?
[23:24] <Scriven> Ose, so yes, something with the django config is setup to listen to itself only, and not the outside interface
[23:24] <Scriven> gordonDrogon, pin 12.
[23:24] <Ose> aha
[23:25] <gordonDrogon> Scriven, ok, physical pin 12 is BCM_GPIO 18 is wiringPi pin 1.
[23:25] * KiltedPi (KiltedPi@host-89-242-176-124.as13285.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[23:25] <gordonDrogon> Scriven, So from the command-line: gpio mode 1 out ; gpio write 1 1 ; gpio write 1 0
[23:25] <Scriven> it'll be listening to 'loopback' or 'localhost' or something, and that should change to eth0/wlan0
[23:25] * [SkG] (~sconde@unaffiliated/skg/x-897332) Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[23:25] <Scriven> OIC! I missed that extra mapping! let me check.
[23:25] <gordonDrogon> Scriven, OR: gpio -g mode 18 out ; gpio -g write 18 1 ; gpio -g write 18 0
[23:26] <gordonDrogon> Scriven, your program probably wants to use pin 1.
[23:26] <gordonDrogon> Scriven, but I've no idea how the python wiringPi wrappers work.
[23:26] * xCP23x (~xCP23x@ Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[23:27] <Scriven> oh, that worked!! OK.
[23:27] <Scriven> That was the next question, is there a page showing gpio/wiringpi/physical mapping?
