[1:59] * Tachyon` blinks
[1:59] <Tachyon`> isn't fedora deadrat based?
[2:02] <plugwash> Yeah something like that, supposedly they had a team at some university working on fedora to be the official distro for the Pi and they still failed to deliver and image that the raspberry pi foundation considered of sufficient quality to release
[2:03] <plugwash> and meanwhile mike and I were working on creating raspbian................
[2:04] * TAFB_pizza is now known as TAFB_adk

[2:05] <TAFB_afk> lots of cute girls there :)
[2:05] <Tachyon`> I was definitely pleased to see raspbian, been running debian since 1999
[2:05] * DDave (~DDave@unaffiliated/ddave) Quit (Ping timeout: 260 seconds)

[2:11] <plugwash> Tachyon`, BTW in a few months time when work starts on raspbian jessie we will probablly be looking for suckers^W developers to help
[2:14] <satellit> look at http://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/Testing/Reports/ARM_RPi
[2:14] * lrusak (~lrusak@ has joined #raspberrypi
[2:14] <satellit> http://scotland.proximity.on.ca/raspberrypi/raspberrypi-fedora-remix/18/images/rpfr-f18-rc1.zip
[2:15] <tdy> hm what about it?
[2:16] <satellit> you were asking about seneca college and RPi image this works look at testing report
[2:17] <tdy> i know about fedora remix.. it was just not up to the rpi foundation's standards for official affiliation
[2:18] <tdy> the "university that was developing it" was seneca college, which i'd never heard of
[2:18] <satellit> ok works for me
[2:19] * satellit debian has a very old version of sugar-desktop which is what I am interested....
[2:21] <Tachyon`> raspbian jessie? what are these named after? team rocket?
[2:21] * laffer (~laffer@89-180-87-58.net.novis.pt) has joined #raspberrypi
[2:22] <Tachyon`> sugar? the OLPC UI?
[2:22] * Tachyon` used to have an XO
[2:22] <Tachyon`> until someone nicked it
[2:22] * Tachyon` assumes they liked the colour or something
[2:22] <satellit> yes wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/Sugar_Creation_Kit
[2:23] * satellit I test for them..latest push is for RPI for kids
[2:24] <Tachyon`> with a standard WM so they're not limited by sugar I hope, sugar is okay for little kids but if they have any ability they'll soon want something more IMHO

[2:25] <Tachyon`> I wasn't impressed
[2:25] <satellit> ok
[2:25] <Tachyon`> although it did have the option of a full desktop
[2:26] <Tachyon`> I'm not suggesting sugar shouldn't be what it boots into, just that there's an option to use something else
[2:26] <satellit> http://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/Tutorials/Introduction_to_the_Sugar_Interface
[2:26] <satellit> it is different DE

[11:29] <ShiftPlusOne> there is a wake from halt you can do though gpio, so you can make your own timer quite easily to turn it back on.

[11:53] <neirpyc> Any word on rtorrent finding its way to Rasbmc? I love Openelec just wish I could run stuff in the background.
[11:53] <Bhaal> Viper-7: Presently I am running it with dwc_otg.speed=1 .. and this works...
[11:53] <Viper-7> Bhaal: an rpi for that? using a nuke to kill a roach? :P

[11:54] <Bhaal> Viper-7: Actually, I have 2 rpi's doing the jobs I was hoping one would be able to do.. monitor my weather station and my SMA inverter...
[11:55] <Bhaal> But as the bluetooth keeps freezing up the rpi I have had to separate the 2 of them...
[11:55] <Bhaal> If I try and use dwc_otg.speed=1 on the weather station I cannot talk to most usb devices...
[11:57] <Bhaal> Viper-7: What would I use that wireless module for?
[11:57] <Bhaal> for the bluetooth?

[11:57] <Bhaal> Viper-7: How does that get my data to pvoutput.org etc?
[11:57] <Viper-7> usb bluetooth is hardly what id call robust
[11:58] <Viper-7> well how do you currently read the bluetooth signal?
[11:59] <Bhaal> via a bluetooth dongle on an rpi with dwc_otg.speed=1 in the cmdline.txt file
[11:59] <Bhaal> Using a piece of software called smatool
[11:59] <Bhaal> Viper-7: I am not really a hardware hacker

[12:07] <Bhaal> Hmmm? batteries?
[12:07] <gordonDrogon> low-power...
[12:07] <gordonDrogon> even at 1.5watts, that's still a lot for long-term batteries
[12:08] <Bhaal> Oh, no, its running on mains
[12:08] <Bhaal> But for the sake of monitor a weather station and a solar inverter I didn't want to be chewing too much power...
[12:09] <gordonDrogon> You can replace the 5v and 3.3v regulators with SMPS versions - that saves power, and use a Model A too.
[12:10] <Bhaal> I am happy with the the Model Bs as they stand, just want the bluetooth to work reliably
[12:11] <Bhaal> I am using a dongle which is 'verified' as working, but I get those timeout issues
[12:11] <Bhaal> if running the USB bus at full speed
[12:11] <gordonDrogon> the model A still has 1 USB port though, so as long as you don't need anything else you'll be OK with it.
[12:11] <gordonDrogon> I've no experience with bluetooth though.

[12:18] <Bhaal> Gah, wrong channel
[12:18] <Amadiro> Bhaal, if you don't need a lot of processing power, you can go a lot more low-power with an MCU
[12:18] <Amadiro> a lot of those also do bluetooth
[12:19] <Amadiro> If you need more processing-power, there are SoC chips that have processing-power comparable to the one on the rpi, but no GPU, that alone will probably also save you a lot, assuming you are not in need to output a HDMI signal :)
[12:19] <Bhaal> Amadiro: I already need the rpi to talk to the weather station with weewx ...
[12:19] * Coburn|Away (~coburn@you.dont.ownt-me.info) Quit (Ping timeout: 276 seconds)
[12:20] <Bhaal> Amadiro: That and I have bought 2 rpis ... if I stop using them, thats $100 wasted
[12:20] <Amadiro> Bhaal, well, check out for instance http://www.acmesystems.it/aria, its weaker than the rpi, but draws only about a tenth of the power.
[12:20] <Amadiro> also has usb, ethernet & 256/512M ram
[12:20] <gordonDrogon> I think it can sometimes be handy to have a high-level system next to a low-level one - so I'm thinking of an pplication that would have the Pi turned off (via a signal from an ATmega), so the ATmega runs for a while - until it's local logging capacity is full, then powers up the Pi, exchanges data and the Pi can then send it via the ether to somewhere, then turn itself off...
[12:21] <Amadiro> gordonDrogon, I have built something to that effect before, but using a full-blown PC.
[12:21] <Amadiro> + a PIC32 microcontroller
[12:22] <gordonDrogon> yea, it's all possible. Some good PCs are low power too - e.g. Alix systems - 500MHz Geode processors (4 watts), and some Atoms can be 10-15 watts too.
[12:22] <Amadiro> the biggest challenge was probably to make the communication between the PC and the MCU reliable
[12:23] <Amadiro> I don't know if that has changed, but then you couldn't rely on the MCUs serial port turning up at the same device file under linux after a reboot -- sometimes it would be named differently
[12:23] <Amadiro> so I opted instead for using libusb
[12:23] <Amadiro> if you just connect it to the rs232 line on the rpi, though, that problem would go away
[12:24] <Amadiro> but then, USB also gives you consistency guarantees, rs232 does not
[12:25] <gordonDrogon> you can force a usb serial port to always be at the same /dev/ device - I think that's what the udev rules can do for you.
[12:26] <Amadiro> gordonDrogon, I think that would still get messed up, though, if the MCU reconnects
[12:26] <Amadiro> the OS doesn't immediately garbage-collect the old device, so it just creates a new one
[12:27] <Triffid_Hunter> Amadiro: that's what symlinks are for
[12:27] <Amadiro> and how is that supposed to work
[12:27] <Triffid_Hunter> Amadiro: SUBSYSTEMS=="usb", ATTRS{idProduct}=="6001", ATTRS{idVendor}=="0403", SYMLINK+="arduino", SYMLINK+="arduino_$attr{serial}", MODE="0660" <-- /dev/arduino always points to the most recent ftdi chip to be plugged in
[12:28] <Triffid_Hunter> so I can unplug/replug, it gets assigned a new node then the symlink points to the new node. programs on the old one get a read error and can reconnect to the symlink
[12:28] <Amadiro> eh, well, libusb is just as reliable and cleaner anyway
[12:28] <Amadiro> and you get to chose your transfer mode, so you can transfer at higher speeds
[12:29] <Amadiro> (I don't think udev was around back then, though)
[12:29] <gordonDrogon> but if using serial then you don't need to use libusb at all - actually that symlink thing is a very elegant solution.
[12:29] <gordonDrogon> I do not confess to being a udev expert at all!
[12:30] <Triffid_Hunter> gordonDrogon: hah you should see the one that automatically creates a dated folder then moves all photos into it when I chuck my camera's SD card in
[12:31] <gordonDrogon> Hm. I'll add udev to my 'to do' list, but I have a dislike of auto mounting, etc.
[12:31] <Triffid_Hunter> me too, it unmounts when it's done
[12:32] <Triffid_Hunter> and only does it for that one specific card
[12:32] <gordonDrogon> I have a bash script I run to extract my camera, phonoe, etc.
[12:32] <Triffid_Hunter> gordonDrogon: ACTION=="add", SUBSYSTEMS=="mmc_host", ATTR{partition}=="1", ATTR{start}=="227", ATTR{size}=="1983773", RUN+="/usr/local/sbin/UDEV-camera-download" <-- that's the udev rule, fires off a shell scrip
[12:32] <Triffid_Hunter> script drops privs before doing the stuff, just for sanity

[13:22] <neirpyc> How is XBMC playback on a Pi running Rasbian as opposed to something like Openelec?
[13:22] <Dyskette> There is a gui - startx will bring it up - but it's not really much good without local input devices
[13:22] <ShiftPlusOne> there's x forwarding and vnc which is what you might be interested in, but 'just terminal' is more than good enough (it's better)

[15:09] <[deXter]> gordonDrogon, Well on a low-end machine like the Pi it could make all the difference
[15:10] <[deXter]> 6.1 was only announced recently, plus it's BSD, not many people like to go there..
[15:10] <Viper-7> Martin-I-DE-NRW: 220 ohms is usually fine for driving most LEDs from 5V, at 3.3V it should be ok with just about everything. i`d say 470 is a bit much
[15:10] <gordonDrogon> [deXter], not convinced - anyway, that's still not a good reason for me to look at it again.

[17:00] <Viper-7> mgottschlag: ?
[17:01] <mgottschlag> you have only 3.3V - V_LED at the resistor
[17:01] <mgottschlag> so the resulting current will be quite a bit lower
[17:01] <Viper-7> thats voltage, not current
[17:01] <mgottschlag> probably lower than 20mA which is in the operating area of most LEDs
[17:01] <babylonlurker> Tanrax : iirc there is an "ircd" in the repository, I have mine running on the Pi, just not opened through the router
[17:02] <mgottschlag> still, the voltage drop at the LED is constant, so the ratio of V_resistor/resistance is important
[17:02] <babylonlurker> so only on my LAN
[17:02] <Viper-7> mgottschlag: the voltage drop across the resistor changes
[17:02] <Viper-7> the current flowing through the circuit does not
[17:02] <mgottschlag> of course it does
[17:02] <Viper-7> (with differences in LED)
[17:02] <bertrik> ohm's law applied to driving LEDs should be used as a captcha on web sites involving electronics ???
[17:03] <mgottschlag> ohm's law applies to all resistors, no matter whether they are in series with a diode :)
[17:03] <Viper-7> exactly
[17:03] <Martin-I-DE-NRW> is there a way to check if the pi is ok? any tools or something?
[17:03] <mgottschlag> and ohm's law talks about the voltage *at the resistor*
[17:03] <mgottschlag> which in turn very much depends on the voltage at the diode
[17:04] <mgottschlag> because the voltages together are 3.3V

[17:10] <mgottschlag> resistors usually are taught in school, while diodes usually aren't
[17:11] <gordonDrogon> FWIW: I think the Pi's a bit more robust that it might appear - it's not totally bomb proof, but ...
[17:11] <Hodapp> they only let current flow one way! except for when they don't!
[17:11] <Viper-7> mgottschlag: a 100 ohm resistor on a 3.3V source will allow up to 33mA to flow. If the LED sinks away voltage then yes, less current will flow too
[17:11] <gordonDrogon> e.g. I've pulled more than 35mA out of a GPIO pin in the past and the Pi lived to tell the tale :)
[17:12] <Viper-7> connect that 100 ohm resistor between the GPIO pin and ground, and you`re burning 0.1W of power at the resistor, which is more than the GPIO is rated to deliver
[17:12] <Viper-7> depending on the size of the LED, that may be in a damaging range, or maybe not
[17:12] <gordonDrogon> back to the soldering..
[17:12] <Viper-7> in truth the GPIO outputs *are* current limited, and can be sunk directly to ground without causing immediate failure, but i wouldnt trust them to stay like that for long
[17:13] <gordonDrogon> er, they're not really current limited...
[17:13] <Hodapp> sure they are! they just use the entire Pi as a fuse!
[17:13] <gordonDrogon> :)
[17:13] <mgottschlag> :D
[17:14] <gordonDrogon> You can reboot a Pi by connecting a GPIO pin to ground and turning it in.

[17:19] <gordonDrogon> Viper-7, that's not a current limiter.
[17:19] <Viper-7> the bigger issue is trying to draw more than ~50mA in total from all GPIO pins combined
[17:19] <Viper-7> gordonDrogon: i know

[17:19] <Viper-7> gordonDrogon: that link even explains the difference, which is why i posted it
[17:20] <gordonDrogon> schnuws, you just need to talk care wiring into the gpio connector.
[17:20] <gordonDrogon> make sure you don't mistake 3.3v for 5v, etc.
[17:20] <Viper-7> a drive strength of 16mA means:
[17:20] <Viper-7> If you set the pad high you can draw up to 16mA and we still guarantee that the output voltage will be >=1.3V.
[17:20] * pksato (~PEBKAC@unaffiliated/pksato) has joined #raspberrypi
[17:20] <Viper-7> What is a safe current?
[17:20] <Viper-7> All the electronics of the pads are designed for 16mA. That is a safe value under which youwill not damage the device. Even if you set the drive strength to 2mA and then load it so16mA comes out that will not damage the device. Other than that there is no guaranteed maximum safe current.

[18:23] <mrmoney2012> it's not working right now - just loops once
[18:23] <ParkerR> mrmoney2012, What script?
[18:23] <ParkerR> You just joined
[18:23] <mrmoney2012> pastie is there.
[18:23] <ParkerR> Oh
[18:24] <mrmoney2012> love servo blaster??? having fun twisting a plastic skeletons head around !
[18:24] <mrmoney2012> totally useless - must think of good use !
[18:25] <mrmoney2012> got wifi working on the pi for first time today also - tried two dongles - first one was power hungry i think second not - i can run it straight off the pi USB!

[18:26] <mrmoney2012> ok
[18:26] <mrmoney2012> nope just runs once.
[18:27] <mrmoney2012> this is wrong i guess???. for i in {1..$RPT}
[18:27] <mrmoney2012> when i do ??? for i in {1..5}
[18:27] <mrmoney2012> it works

[18:29] <ParkerR> It says that WONT work
[18:29] <mrmoney2012> oops
[18:29] <ParkerR> Well that presents a solution
[18:29] <mrmoney2012> ok.. looking
[18:29] <mrmoney2012> what a palava!
[18:29] <ParkerR> Kinda wish that would say WHY that wont work
[18:30] <gordonDrogon> pavlovas are better..
[18:30] <mrmoney2012> maybe i should do it in python
[18:30] <mrmoney2012> pullovers
[18:30] <ParkerR> "Fixing the original code with eval"

[18:31] <mrmoney2012> wish i could check the pi voltages from the command line
[18:31] <mrmoney2012> that would be handy
[18:31] <mrmoney2012> as i connect peripherals would be good to check stability
[18:31] <gordonDrogon> mrmoney2012, so: /opt/vc/bin/vcgencmd measure_volts doesn't work for you then?

[18:32] <ParkerR> mrmoney2012, I'm not completely sure but there might be a way to have a voltage monitor on the GPIO and have it measure TP1 to TP2
[18:32] <mrmoney2012> '/opt/vc/bin/vcgencmd: error while loading shared libraries: libvcos.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
[18:32] <gordonDrogon> mrmoney2012, yea, I just got that too with the lates raspbian update - hang on ..
[18:32] <ParkerR> You can blame the libc6 update for that
[18:33] <mrmoney2012> ok..
[18:34] <gordonDrogon> Hm. libvcos.so is in /opt/vs/lib, but when I put that into /etc/ld.co.conf it's not working
[18:34] <ParkerR> LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/vc/lib vcgencmd measure_volts
[18:35] <gordonDrogon> works.
[18:35] <ParkerR> Try that all on one line

[18:35] <mrmoney2012> thanks??? 1.20 - is that good bad or ugly ?
[18:35] <gordonDrogon> mrmoney2012, I've always used seq - as in for i in `seq 0 10`; do echo $i; done
[18:35] <ParkerR> So that isn;t the TP1 to TP2
[18:35] <ParkerR> *isn't
[18:36] <gordonDrogon> no- that's core volts.

[21:58] <rikkib> My man is with her and calling the cops I guess

[22:01] <gordonDrogon> I don't like those - the system of driving them is inaccurate and archaic.
[22:01] <atouk> servos typically have low torque, don't turn 360, and slower speeds

[22:02] <tdy_> how=for
[22:03] <gordonDrogon> you need a pressure gauge you can read and some way of controlling the air pressure...

[23:57] <sadbox> KiltedPi: That's good... just saw a couple places reccomending class 4's
