[5:28] <ztag100> Ballresin, 4 bucks? is that possible?
[5:28] <Ballresin> Well??? they sold it to me.
[5:29] <Ballresin> The 4GB version was double the price.
[5:29] <ztag100> dafuq?
[5:29] <ztag100> even if, 8 dollars?
[5:29] <Ballresin> yup
[5:29] <ztag100> I bought an sd card last year for like 20 bucks
[5:30] <Ballresin> The whole world is on its head. I bought a 60" plasma for less last month than the 42" i bought 6 years ago - AT COST.

[5:31] <Ballresin> yup
[5:31] <ztag100> haha
[5:31] <Ballresin> Though it shouldn't be surprising. My Apple TV is roughly the same size as the Pi.
[5:32] <uriah> hello... still having the same problem with ethernet on the pi. it downloads a file fine until it reaches a certain amount of kb, then stalls...
[5:32] <Ballresin> uriah: network firewall?
[5:32] <uriah> i've even tried using a more powerful (1000mA) pwoer supply, to no avail
[5:33] <uriah> Ballresin: i wouldn't think so, i'm running a NAT from my laptop
[5:33] <Ballresin> try downloading a large JPG or something..?
[5:33] <uriah> i did
[5:33] <Ballresin> hmm
[5:33] <uriah> a large tarball
[5:34] <Ballresin> how many kb? pattern?
[5:34] <Ballresin> disclaimer - I've had my Pi running for not even half an hour. Not an expert on the Pi. Just a systems/network guy.
[5:35] <uriah> it doesn't seem to be a pattern... i think it might be when the speed gets too high, but not sure
[5:35] <uriah> right now i'm ssh'ed into it with top running, but that's ultra low throughput
[5:35] <uriah> ah, ok ;)
[5:36] <Ballresin> I kinda doubt it would be related to high speed transfer. However, the power envelope on the Pi might make my insight downright stupid.

[5:36] <uriah> indeed...
[5:36] <uriah> what i need right now is someone who can help debug the hardware, i think :-/
[5:36] <Ballresin> I've got a 10 Watt power supply on my model B, and I was able to pull down Chromium without an issue.
[5:37] <Ballresin> The Pi can pull 1200mA naked, and the power requirements go up as you add hardware, as I recall.
[5:37] <uriah> wow, 10watt!
[5:37] <Ballresin> er...
[5:37] <uriah> where did you get that?!
[5:37] <Ballresin> yeah, 10 Watt. 2A at 5v.
[5:38] <uriah> oh
[5:38] <uriah> yeah

[5:38] <uriah> Ballresin: got a link to where you got it?
[5:38] <Ballresin> Best Buy took $21 for it.
[5:38] <uriah> ah, k
[5:38] <Ballresin> I felt OK with that since I got the 8GB SD card for $4.
[5:38] <uriah> cool
[5:38] <uriah> lol
[5:39] <Ballresin> It is a RocketFish power supply.
[5:39] <Ballresin> No idea if it is good, but my Pi didn't die.
[5:40] <uriah> k
[5:40] <uriah> Ballresin: does it have multiple usb ports?
[5:40] <Ballresin> Anyone writing C for the Pi? I'm debating between C and Python.
[5:40] <Ballresin> Yup.
[5:40] <Ballresin> oh.. the power supply? no.
[5:40] <uriah> ah, ok
[5:41] <uriah> i was wondering if it was this: http://www.bestbuy.ca/en-CA/product/rocketfish-rocketfish-dual-usb-wall-charger-rf-dac01-rf-dac01/10169160.aspx?path=275da42ca182a2bac5a8221d121ee6c0en02
[5:41] <Ballresin> It is roughly analogous to an iPhone power supply.
[5:41] <Ballresin> Oh, so you're saying I got suckered. Awesome.
[5:42] <Ballresin> Wish I didn't live 1 block from a Best Buy.
[5:42] <uriah> no no, not necessarily suckered

[8:19] <uriah> oh yeah
[8:19] <ShiftPlusOne> or rather openmax
[8:19] <uriah> :-/
[8:19] <Torikun> does vlc play videos yet?
[8:20] <Jck_true> Torikun: It always has :)
[8:20] <Torikun> on the pi
[8:20] <Torikun> they had some issue where it would not play properly
[8:20] <Torikun> and ocerheat the pi
[8:20] <Torikun> due to a codec
[8:21] <Jck_true> Torikun: It will play video on the raspberry - Just won't use the GPU

[8:27] <Torikun> what you going to do with it
[8:27] <Torikun> i got 4 lol
[8:27] <ShiftPlusOne> I ordered me a model A a few days ago as well >.>
[8:27] <Torikun> wow
[8:27] <Torikun> i am waiting for the camera module before I buy #5
[8:27] <ShiftPlusOne> ordered with RS though since they were a lot cheaper... don't know if or when I'll get it though.
[8:28] <Jck_true> 1) My webserver 2) I fried 3) Runs my workbench 4) Carry around demo device 5) XBMC media center
[8:28] <Torikun> mcm elecronics always has them in stock
[8:29] <Jck_true> Should have ordered an extra - A collegue is leaving the company - A Pi would have been a good gift for him
[8:29] <SixtyFold> Jck_true - howd you fry one?

[8:31] <SixtyFold> i think i have a microsd 4gb with adapter around here somewhere, but ill just wait anyhow
[8:31] <SixtyFold> what was the GPIO pin connected to that fried it?
[8:31] <Jck_true> SixtyFold: ATX powersupply
[8:32] <SixtyFold> oh
[8:32] <SixtyFold> hehe
[8:32] <SixtyFold> what were you trying to do?
[8:32] <Jck_true> SixtyFold: Letting the Raspberry control the power state of an ATX power supply
[8:32] <SixtyFold> ShiftPlusOne - i didnt think they made the model A anymore?
[8:33] <SixtyFold> Jck_true - oh, cool
[8:33] <ShiftPlusOne> SixtyFold, why wouldn't they?
[8:33] <Jck_true> I thought! Hey I can just test this circuit quickly by shorting the collector pin to 5V!
[8:33] <SixtyFold> ShiftPlusOne - wasnt the model a the 256 version?
[8:34] <ShiftPlusOne> SixtyFold, no, you're thinking of Rev 1, I think. But yes, it's a 256mb version, but it's also more (or less?) that that.

[8:36] <Jck_true> but my setup works for now - Touching the metal frame signals the Pi to turn on the ATX PSU which powers the LVDS converter a satadrive and usb 5v power saving rail

[8:41] <ShiftPlusOne> must be your region or something
[8:42] <SixtyFold> yah, i dont think A is available in the USA anymore
[8:42] <ShiftPlusOne> I don't think that should be "anymore", but rather "for now"
[8:43] <SixtyFold> All new and existing Raspberry Pi and Raspberry Pi bundle orders fulfilled will ship with the new Raspberry Pi model B (512MB) with additional RAM at no extra cost.
[8:43] <SixtyFold> http://www.mcmelectronics.com/content/en-US/raspberry-pi
[8:44] <Viper-7> SixtyFold: 1) that doesnt relate to model A vs B, 2) RS told me that too, then sent me one with 256mb
[8:45] * Twi7ch (4646ec96@gateway/web/freenode/ip. Quit (Quit: Page closed)
[8:45] <SixtyFold> well, there is no US site to buy A that i can find anymore, that's all im saying
[8:45] <Viper-7> SixtyFold: they`re referring to the 256mb model Bs there
[8:45] <Viper-7> afaik they havent even gone into full flight production on model As yet
[8:45] <Viper-7> limited release, since demand is so much higher for the Bs
[8:47] <ShiftPlusOne> SixtyFold, you're right, I've checked the distributors and the American sites don't need to have the Model A (for now)
[8:47] <Viper-7> if you just want something small that runs linux, how about https://www.olimex.com/Products/OLinuXino/iMX233/iMX233-OLinuXino-MICRO/ ?
[8:48] <SixtyFold> seems to be pretty expensive for what it is
[8:48] <ShiftPlusOne> I guess you weren't in the market for a cheap linux dev board before the pi came out?
[8:49] <Viper-7> heh
[8:49] <ShiftPlusOne> They'd probably be charging 3 times as much if it weren't for the pi.
[8:49] <Torikun> that is slower than the pi
[8:49] <SixtyFold> i go by now, not what something would have cost 1 1/2 years ago :P
[8:49] <Viper-7> https://www.adafruit.com/products/513 is expensive for what it is
[8:50] <Viper-7> Torikun: and cheaper (than model b)
[8:51] <Torikun> adafruit expensive 2
[8:51] <Torikun> pi is better
[8:51] <Viper-7> https://www.olimex.com/Products/OLinuXino/A13/A13-OLinuXino-MICRO/ beats the pi in many ways imo
[8:51] <Viper-7> Torikun: thats RRP
[8:51] <Viper-7> element14 want $110 for it
[8:51] <Torikun> the xino is nice but pi has more ram
[8:52] <Viper-7> digikey want 89
[8:52] <SixtyFold> http://www.hardkernel.com/renewal_2011/main.php
[8:52] <Viper-7> Torikun: not than my pi
[8:52] <Viper-7> i ordered a model B, was told by RS it would have 512mb ram, but it only has 256
[8:52] <Torikun> i got 2 of those
[8:53] <Viper-7> <SixtyFold> seems to be pretty expensive for what it is
[8:53] <Viper-7> lol, thats the entire issue with the market
[8:53] <Viper-7> nothing costs what it should :P
[8:54] <Viper-7> but the euro is poor atm, so the olimex offerings arent too bad really
[8:54] <Viper-7> considering most people thought the price point of the pi was revolutionary

[10:06] <Perkele> Jck_true: check fbi maybe

[10:07] <Perkele> with the caveat that the screen size is the one of smallest screen of the client attached
[10:07] <Jck_true> I don't mind that
[10:07] <Perkele> you start tmux locally on the pi

[10:07] <Jck_true> Yeah - I don't have a keyboard on the pi...
[10:07] <Perkele> from your client
[10:08] <Perkele> maybe put tmux in some sort of startup script
[10:08] <Jck_true> Ohhh - That might be a way
[10:08] <Perkele> so maybe screen also works instead of tmux, but i always use tmux
[10:09] <Perkele> cause tmux >> screen
[10:09] <Jck_true> I'm a screen guy - But you're right tmux looks nice from the descriptions :)

[11:06] <Jck_true> troulouliou_dev: http://elinux.org/RPi_config.txt
[11:06] <gordonDrogon> you can specify the resolution of the virtual display when you start vncserver on the Pi.
[11:06] <gordonDrogon> so ssh into the Pi, kill any running vncserver, then restart it with the higher resolution.
[11:07] <gordonDrogon> so vncserver -geometry 1920x1080
[11:07] <gordonDrogon> for that big screen experience.
[11:07] <gordonDrogon> You'll need to make sure that you run vncviewer in full-screen mode on the machine you're viewing the Pi's video on.
[11:09] <troulouliou_dev> gordonDrogon, thanks and for autostart en entry in /etc/xdg/autostart is a good solution no ?

[11:14] <troulouliou_dev> guess i have to tweak the xorg conf as weel

[11:42] <Cynar> hi all. Does anyone here have much experience with either TV tuner drivers, or kernel upgrades?
[11:45] * dhbiker (~dhbiker@ Quit (Ping timeout: 264 seconds)
[11:46] <gordonDrogon> TV tuners? I guess you could connect the composite video output to a UHF modulator..
[11:46] <gordonDrogon> for a kernel upgrade - apt-get update ; apt-get upgrade seems to work..
[11:47] <Cynar> tried that. My TV tuner was supposed to be linux compatible, It only works with version 3.7 and up
[11:47] <Cynar> it's a USB TV Tuner card btw
[11:48] <SStrife> you might need to "apt-get dist-upgrade" to upgrade the kernel
[11:48] <Cynar> I either need to somehow get the drivers, or upgrade to 3.7
[11:49] <Cynar> dist-upgrade only gets to 3.6.11
[11:49] <Cynar> at least on raspbian and raspbmc

[14:39] <mgottschlag> hm, I cannot use a 5V power supply anymore then though, I'd have to go higher than that and add a regulator after the diode
[14:39] <mgottschlag> could also work though

[15:49] <Shock> cool
[15:49] <ShiftPlusOne> if it were 1000e, then yeah
[15:49] <Shock> does this question get asked a lot?
[15:50] <nid0> now and then
[15:50] <ShiftPlusOne> nuh, most people don't care and take pride of void warranties
[15:50] <Shock> :))
[15:50] <IT_Sean> ShiftPlusOne: i thought OVing blew the OTP?
[15:50] <ryanteck> If it was done using the overclock tool It don't
[15:50] <IT_Sean> Oooh, right... i forgot about that
[15:50] <Shock> IT_Sean: only with force_turbo = 1
[15:50] <ShiftPlusOne> I don't remember the exact condition, but IIRC it's overvolting and then a set of or's relating to other settings
[15:51] <ShiftPlusOne> some jerk removed the warranty void condition from the wiki
[15:51] <IT_Sean> jerk!
[15:52] <Shock> (force_turbo || current_limit_override || temp_limit>85) && over_voltage>0 blows the OTP
[15:52] <ShiftPlusOne> thanks
[15:52] <Shock> sure
[15:52] <ryanteck> I want to blow up a Pi soon
[15:52] <IT_Sean> Ahhh... okay. Thanks fer clarifying
[15:52] <ryanteck> I wonder if Deviding by 0 works
[15:53] <IT_Sean> dividing by zero voids your warranty. :p
[15:53] * znode (~znode@ has joined #raspberrypi
[15:55] <Shock> are board revision numbers incremental?
[15:56] <des2> The PI is an unusual electronic device because it's the result of a partnership between the foundation and 2 electronic distributors, RS and Farnell.
[15:56] <ShiftPlusOne> they are based on the actual board revision (which doesn't directly translate to the revision reported by cpuinfo) and also the factory they are made in.
[15:56] <nid0> Shock: mostly
[15:56] <nid0> http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=63&t=32733
[15:56] <Shock> i.e. a board with revision 0x000f was manufactured after a board with revision 0x000e?
[15:57] <des2> Normally distributors sell items made by manufacturers.
[15:57] <nid0> no, e and f are both rev2 b boards with 512MB, its probably a farnell/rs difference
[15:57] <nid0> yeah
[15:57] <nid0> '000d' => 'Model B Revision 2.0 512MB', (Egoman)
[15:57] <nid0> '000e' => 'Model B Revision 2.0 512MB', (Sony)
[15:57] <nid0> '000f' => 'Model B Revision 2.0 512MB', (Qisda)
[15:57] <ShiftPlusOne> Shock, I don't think so, no
[15:58] <ShiftPlusOne> so e would be the made in uk ones
[15:58] <ShiftPlusOne> and f are... the other ones, and they are both still being made afaik
[15:58] <des2> Farnell is responsible for the UK ones.
[15:58] <ShiftPlusOne> so that's not an indication of one being made before the other.
[15:58] <Shock> nid0: fiy, i got both boards from element14
[15:59] <ShiftPlusOne> Farnell==Element14
[15:59] <Shock> excellent
[15:59] <Shock> thanks
[16:02] <Shock> do you know where I can find libvcos.so on raspbmc?
[16:03] <Shock> /opt/vc/lib seems to be missing
[16:03] <ShiftPlusOne> Don't know about raspbmc, but there's always 'find / -iname libvcos.so'
[16:03] <ShiftPlusOne> and #raspbmc

[16:33] * Kane (~Kane@ Quit (Ping timeout: 255 seconds)
[16:33] <Shock> kinda hard to answer your question without the specific error
[16:33] <dwatkins> sounds very familiar, troulouliou_dev - I think I had the same issue on SuSE, there's probably an x11 fonts package you need. Did you look the error up in relation to Debian?
[16:33] <troulouliou_dev> yep xfonts-base is installed
[16:34] <troulouliou_dev> i have created all the link recommended

[16:40] <FR^2> Is it possible (e.g. using pulseaudio) to use the analogue audio output jack and the hdmi audio a) at the same time or b) switching the output between those two?
[16:44] <troulouliou_dev> dwatkins, was just a param missing to the rfauth param
[16:44] <IT_Sean> FR^2: i believe it is possible to switch between them, but i do not believe you can use 'em at the same time.
[16:44] <dwatkins> troulouliou_dev: linux solves an otherwise disastrous day ;)
[16:45] <FR^2> IT_Sean: I assumed so. Any hints on keywords to search the web with? ^^
[16:45] <dwatkins> XBMC has a [software] switch to choose analog or digital output
[16:45] <IT_Sean> I do not know how to switch audio routing, sorry.

[17:24] <gordonDrogon> gpio readall will show the status of all gpios'.
[17:24] <gordonDrogon> apart from the internal pull-up/down resistor settings.
[17:25] <gordonDrogon> oddly enough they're stored in non-volatile RAM and are supposed to be saves between power cycles too, but it's a one-way process...

[17:27] <catcher> gordonDrogon, I want to make sure I don't fry my board, just wondering if mistakes with the pullup resistor can do that.
[17:27] <gordonDrogon> I've just added in the physical pin numbering on the gpio readall command too - someone asked for it... It's not published yet - got a couple more things to check first.
[17:27] <VetteWork> I installed webiopi, gives a decent web gui of status. live update. can also control and switch i/o
[17:27] <gordonDrogon> catcher, no issues with them at all. They're quite 'weak' anyway - 68K I think.
[17:27] <gordonDrogon> VetteWork, yea, that's ok, but it's a bit heavy if you just want a quick command-line thing.

[17:29] <VetteWork> I have been using it just for instant gratification while doing stuff.
[17:29] <catcher> gordonDrogon, great, thanks. When I connect a hardware switch to a pin, is it very important to have it on input mode with pullup disabled?
[17:29] * booyaa (booyaa@ has joined #raspberrypi
[17:30] <gordonDrogon> catcher, no - however if it's in output mode and you push the switch you might short-circuit the gpio pin.
[17:30] <VetteWork> I had found it before I found gpio..
[17:30] <VetteWork> gordon, doing anything with SNMP?
[17:30] <gordonDrogon> catcher, some people put a small value resistor just in-case.
[17:30] <gordonDrogon> VetteWork, not planning to...
[17:31] <VetteWork> ok. thats what we are working on right now.. have it working for reading status, but traps and setting we dont have yet (havent really worked on setting yet)
[17:31] <catcher> perfect, thanks. Last question for now - why is wiringpi faster than the filesystem controls? How does it access the pins more efficiently?
[17:31] <gordonDrogon> I saw some mention of it on the forums - I presume that was you?
[17:32] <gordonDrogon> catcher, wiringPi uses direct memory mapped IO - the downside is that it needs root...
[17:32] <VetteWork> negative. havent been on the forums (read but not post). been in #net-snmp a little asking
[17:32] <gordonDrogon> ok

[20:27] <marl_scot> hi guys, i keep getting my network dropping out on my pi, the usb appears to drop at the same time, so i presume it is something to do with the usb driver, does anyone have a script that will monitor the network/usb and restart the usb driver if it drops out?

[20:32] <chaotix> not simultaniously i mean
[20:32] <chaotix> but they work
[20:32] <marl_scot> chaotix, worked on the same board or did you have openelec on another board?

[20:34] <marl_scot> i ask becasue the only time i have had problems (other than drivers) with usb dongles was down to the power they wanted, hence my reason for putting powered hubs/external devices on all my pis

[20:37] <chaotix> ok

[20:37] * peterrus (~peterrus@5352B04C.cm-6-3c.dynamic.ziggo.nl) has joined #raspberrypi
[20:37] <marl_scot> you need at leaste 700mA jsut for the pi
[20:37] <chaotix> the one i got from newark element should be hgh enough though right?
[20:37] <IT_Sean> Then more overhead for USB devices
[20:37] <IT_Sean> Try to get a 1A supply.
[20:37] <marl_scot> if you have a dongle or such then go for 1.5A (1500mA)
[20:37] <IT_Sean> ^ or that
[20:38] <marl_scot> or grab a powered usb hub, and use that to power your pi and your devices, as they are normally 2A power supplies
[20:39] <marl_scot> (plug psu into powered hub, plug one cable from powered hub to PI power connector, and a cable from PI usb to powered hub usb input, if that makes sense)
[20:39] <chaotix> sorry the one from newark is 1000mA... i thought it didnt say, but it was just hard to read
[20:40] <marl_scot> do you have a powered hub to test using that (dont need to run the pi from it, if your pi supply is 100mA)
[20:40] <chaotix> it sas input ac100-200v, output DC 4.5 to 9 .5v max 1000mA
[20:40] <chaotix> should i try to aquire something stronger?
[20:41] <chaotix> no powered hub :(
[20:41] <marl_scot> NOTE THOUGH!!!!!!! ALWAYS plug your supplies into the same power socket, unless you can be certain that your house doesnt have 2 ring mains

[20:41] <chaotix> i c
[20:42] <chaotix> what if i rig a 9v battery up to it
[20:42] <marl_scot> sorry, 2 power rings, is where you have 2 fuses in your electric cuboard for your mains power
[20:42] <marl_scot> not without a voltage regulator
[20:42] <chaotix> i powered my cell phone like that durring hurricane sandy
[20:42] <chaotix> oh
[20:42] <chaotix> i just wrigged it... prolly not a good idea
[20:43] <chaotix> could the power be affecting the sound too?

[20:54] <IT_Sean> because they wanted to get the B into the hands of devs, as the A is meant for the edu market.
[20:55] <IT_Sean> Also, the A is just a B minux some components.

[20:59] <TAFB_afk> I've done probably 5 or 6 kernel upgrades, no reboots. somethin gonna break soon for sure.
[20:59] <marl_scot> what is the latest raspbian kernel?
[21:00] <gordonDrogon> 3.6.11+ #371
[21:01] <marl_scot> lol, maybe i should upgrage my reprap pi then its running 3.2.27 just now! :(

[21:15] <Torikun> tu
[21:15] <Torikun> ty
[21:15] <marl_scot> basicly upgrade, just upgrades the packages you have installed, and dist-upgrade is meant to take you to the next release of the os

[21:18] <marl_scot> plugwash, what have i done now?
[21:18] <plugwash> the real difference between upgrade and dist-upgrade is that upgrade will only upgrade packages that are already on the system
[21:18] <IT_Sean> you exist
[21:18] <IT_Sean> that's enough
[21:18] <Torikun> http://askubuntu.com/questions/81585/what-is-dist-upgrade-and-why-does-it-upgrade-more-than-upgrade
[21:18] <Torikun> dist-upgrade is better

[21:25] <Grievar> plugwash: to be more precise: dist-upgrade will install new packages and remove installed ones, upgrade will only upgrade packages for a new version
[21:26] <gordonDrogon> zleap, good oh!
[21:26] <Grievar> like if you have application foo that didn't use to depend on libbar, but now does in the new version
[21:26] <zleap> gordonDrogon, is that ok, i guess it could be useful,
[21:26] <Grievar> apt-get upgrade will not upgrade foo, because it would have to install libbar to do so
[21:26] <Grievar> apt-get dist-upgrade will
[21:27] <gordonDrogon> I suspect dist-upgrade is only applicable when doing a real dist-upgrade, or when running 'testing' ...
[21:27] <gordonDrogon> hopefully that will go away when testing becomes stable ... real soon now ?
[21:28] <Grievar> gordonDrogon: There are situations in which "stable" will still require you to dist-upgrade. Kernel updates in particular I think
[21:28] <Grievar> although
[21:28] <Grievar> it depends on the particular distro
[21:29] <gordonDrogon> Grievar, dunno - I rarely use the stock kernels, so not seen that...
[21:29] <Grievar> gordonDrogon: I almost always do dist-upgrade instead of just upgrade
[21:29] <Grievar> but I also very rarely run stable
[21:29] <zleap> i ran all thast on my pi and it seems to work ok still

[21:30] <gordonDrogon> Pi is the first Debian box I've run in 16+ years that's not been the stable release!
[21:31] <Grievar> gordonDrogon: wow, you must not have played quake much :P
[21:31] <Grievar> gordonDrogon: back in 03 or so, I couldn't do /anything/ 3D without running unstable
[21:31] <Grievar> forget testing
[21:32] <gordonDrogon> Grievar, I've not played quake at all.
[21:32] <Grievar> gordonDrogon: /testing/ was still using XFree86 4.2.x when 4.3.x had been out for two years and 4.4.x was just about to come out
[21:32] <Grievar> it had /ancient/ versions of mesa3D and DRI
[21:32] <gordonDrogon> Grievar, it's just a desktop for me. I don't need 3D anything.

[21:34] <gordonDrogon> Grievar, it's still out of date, but it's ok for what I need. plays videos OK, lets me run up xterms... firfox & chrom work... and that's just about that...
[21:34] <Grievar> gordonDrogon: oh well it's gotten a lot better than what I'm used to then
[21:34] * zproc (~zproc@laf31-6-82-241-3-109.fbx.proxad.net) Quit (Quit: zproc)
[21:35] <Grievar> first of all, without working drivers for your video card, playing videos was painful, and my video card was too new to have drivers in debian stable. Secondly, there was like zero codec support present in the debian repositories so you had to compile and install something like mplayer or VLC yourself
[21:35] <Grievar> and then of course mplayer and vlc demanded newer versions of libraries than what debian had...

[21:38] <Grievar> gordonDrogon: well in general, stable also had older kernel versions, which were missing drivers...
[21:38] <Grievar> and newer kernels did things like change the arrangement of things in /proc and create /sys which broke the userland
[21:38] <gordonDrogon> I do tend to compile later kernels though.
[21:38] <Grievar> so upgrading to a too-new kernel without upgrading other things wasn't an option

[21:40] <Grievar> the 2.4 -> 2.6 jump was a huge deal
[21:40] <gordonDrogon> yea, I remember it!
[21:40] <Grievar> that was a big part of why I didn't run stable, stable still had 2.4.x
[21:40] <gordonDrogon> It took me a long time to move from 2.4.

[23:04] <TAFB_afk> here's the battery box: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Dual-USB-5V-2A-Mobile-Power-Supply-18650-Battery-Charger-box-iphone-4s-5-/170922278103?pt=PDA_Accessories&hash=item27cbc2fcd7
[23:04] <TAFB_afk> I'll link ya up the best batteries to use
[23:04] <mdszy> I might get a Pibow.
[23:05] <mdszy> heard a lot of good things about those
[23:05] <TAFB_afk> best batteries money can buy: http://www.ebay.com/itm/4pcs-NEW-Panasonic-18650-NCR18650B-3-7V-3400mAh-Li-ion-Rechargeable-Battery-/251232457639?pt=US_Rechargeable_Batteries&hash=item3a7e9f13a7
[23:06] <exo-squad> TAFB_afk, what battery cells does it use
[23:06] <TAFB_afk> use unprotected batteries with that box (protected won't fit). box has deep discharge protection, etc.
[23:06] * gr4yscale (~gr4yscale@107-1-54-178-ip-static.hfc.comcastbusiness.net) Quit (Ping timeout: 244 seconds)
[23:06] <TAFB_afk> it uses any UNPROTECTED 18650 Lithium Ion batteries.
[23:06] * gvz (~gvz@78-60-33-10.static.zebra.lt) Quit ()
[23:06] <TAFB_afk> it can use 1, 2, 3 or 4 batteries.
[23:07] <exo-squad> is the pink/white one you posted earlier good enough to run the pi for a few hours?
[23:07] <TAFB_afk> just make sure, when putting in more than one battery, they are all matched (similar age, use history, current charge voltage, etc.)
[23:07] <TAFB_afk> with four of those batteries I linked up, absolutely.
[23:08] <KiltedPi> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cV6kxQYGVs0
[23:08] <exo-squad> the 46 dollars batteries?
[23:08] <KiltedPi> Thats a link for a neat trick
[23:08] <TAFB_afk> yep, unfortunatly :(
[23:08] <KiltedPi> for AA batteries
[23:09] <exo-squad> i was thinking of making an 8 AA NiMH batteries with a volt regulator
[23:09] <TAFB_afk> I had it run my "b" 512mb Pi for 12 hours, battery box was flicking between 50% and 25% left, so still had room to go.
[23:09] <exo-squad> i feel like a little kid again with all these neat ideas
[23:10] <TAFB_afk> This is my solar panel I'm using, puts out a little over 4 amps in full sun, charges two of those battery boxes I linked up (so 8 of those above batteries): http://ecuflashking.com/2012-02-22-CottonPickers_solar_panel_folder/2012-02-22-CottonPickers_solar_panel_folder_large.jpg
[23:11] <exo-squad> how much did tjhat solar panel cost
[23:11] <exo-squad> also is it sturdy
[23:11] <TAFB_afk> probably around $200, I bought it with some other stuff. It's fully weatherproof, rock solid, can survive in a camping backpack, etc.

[23:12] <TAFB_afk> yeah, been super super busy :(
[23:13] * TAFB_afk is now known as TAFB
[23:13] <Torikun> nice paels
[23:13] <exo-squad> TAFB_afk, do you think its worth it to makemy own person supply, or should i just abandon that and just buy one
[23:13] <TAFB> thanks :) Just waiting for a few current sensors and a board to hook em up to the Pi and I'll have some super awesome solar powered pi pics/graphs :)
[23:13] * markllama (mlamouri@nat/redhat/x-jdrfzurcpfjtnnow) Quit (Quit: Leaving.)
[23:14] <Torikun> what will this pi do
[23:14] <TAFB> exo-squad: so many things can go wrong. That battery box is cheap, has a charge controller, regulated output controller, etc. Can't beat that deal :) Charges at 2amps too (adjustable to 1amp and 0.5 amps too), so it's powerful.
[23:14] <TAFB> Torikun: It's for the local police. It will be mounted in a tree can stream a video feed/motion detection over 3G cell network.
[23:15] <Torikun> 1984!
[23:15] <Torikun> nice
[23:15] <Torikun> that will use a lot of bandwith
[23:15] <TAFB> yep, I think the police get the 3G modem for free :)
[23:17] <SpeedEvil> 4a at what voltage?
[23:18] <TAFB> 5v
[23:18] <TAFB> super nice not much gets lost in conversion :)
[23:18] <SpeedEvil> I hope you have lots of sun' and that's 100% unshaded.
[23:19] <TAFB> I'm in Canada, sun? lol :) I'm thinking I might need to downgrade to A pi :)
[23:19] <SpeedEvil> I,m in Scotland
[23:20] <SpeedEvil> to run a pi 24*7 needs about a 250w solar panel and a 110ah/q12v battery
[23:20] <SpeedEvil> 12v
[23:20] <TAFB> 250w, yikes! lol.
[23:20] <SpeedEvil> and that'll likely fall over 2 or 3 days

[23:22] <SpeedEvil> winter weeks can be very, very dim.
[23:22] <TAFB> I've got current and voltage sensors coming for the Pi, so it'll measure solar output and plot it over the day, and measure the Pi's current draw and the battery draw/output/voltage so I should get an idea pretty quick, about what it'll need to run :)

[23:26] <gordonDrogon> have a normally closed button on the power input. Push it - it turns it off momentarily.
[23:26] <rvalles> *cough*

[23:28] <bennypr0fane> Hello, I have a Logitech K260 wireless keyboard+mouse set that both connect to the same USB receiver. If I unplug the usb dongle from the RasPi while the OS is running, and then plug it back in, it's dead, I can't get the mouse+keyboard back to life unless I reboot
[23:28] <SpeedEvil> TAFB: best plan is to find a local solar installation providing data
[23:28] <rvalles> I've thought about that already. A bit violent.
[23:28] <gordonDrogon> but you're then relying on the polyfuses, etc. and the PSUs own protection...
[23:29] <rvalles> I curse the idiot that didn't think about it for rev1
[23:29] <rvalles> reset should really be at the very least in the big gpio header
[23:29] <gordonDrogon> a lot of modern PCs don't have a reset button now either...
[23:30] <rvalles> the boards still have the headers
[23:30] <TAFB> SpeedEvil: There's a company going around installing full solar on peoples roof's for free. They get 50% of your energy savings for life! But they wouldn't do our roof, too many vents/obstructions, huge tree and roof peek goes wrong direction (needs to be east/west so solar panels will face south/north)
[23:30] <rvalles> if it was me I'd have gone even further
[23:30] <rvalles> and provided at least the footprint for a microsw

[23:36] <SpeedEvil> on the 28th, output was about .4kwh/kw. or for your 20w panel, 8wh.
[23:36] <SpeedEvil> this would have run the pi - without anything else - for around 4 hours
[23:36] <SpeedEvil> neglecting any other inefficiencies
[23:37] <SpeedEvil> is your charger a peak power tracking charger?
[23:38] <TAFB> the charger is a cc/cv charger, sucks up any available current as long as voltage doesn't drop below 4.4v, and tried to provide up to 2amp charging current (for 4 x 18650 3400mah batteries)

[23:40] <TAFB> I have two of those chargers running off the solar panel (so charging 8 x 18650 batteries total, up to 4 amps)
[23:40] <SpeedEvil> it's a linear chwqrger?
[23:40] <SpeedEvil> charger
[23:40] * _ember (~ember@89-70-167-63.dynamic.chello.pl) has left #raspberrypi
[23:41] <TAFB> not sure, charges all four of the batteries in parallel
[23:41] <SpeedEvil> does it have a big transistor that gets hot
[23:41] <TAFB> nope, barely gets warm. It's only taking 5v in, 4.2v out :)
[23:42] <SpeedEvil> the load is cut off if the cells drop voltage?
[23:42] <TAFB> yep, it drops USB output if battery voltage falls below 3.25v

[23:47] <SpeedEvil> (middle of Scotland)
[23:47] <SpeedEvil> shading matters lots
[23:47] <TAFB> we have a huge blue spruce tree, like 100ft tall, right beside our house.
[23:47] <SpeedEvil> the 'rent a roof' people want to cherry pick, for the obvious reasons.
[23:48] <SpeedEvil> that 30% drop may make it uneconomic for them
[23:48] <SpeedEvil> cut off at 60 feet, bare the last 15 feet of trunk, bolt panels to it,
[23:48] <TAFB> ahhh, so they wouldn't be making much money off us, because we wouldn't be saving as much. makes sense now.
