[0:10] <humbolt> Thank god XBMC is open source
[0:10] <Nebukadneza> heho
[0:10] <Nebukadneza> in what respect? ;)
[0:10] <humbolt> That way, maybe somebody will lay hands on that idiotic interface some day
[0:10] <humbolt> OMFG
[0:11] * znode (~znode@ has joined #raspberrypi
[0:11] <humbolt> The framework seems good enough, transitions smooth and some kind of skinning available
[0:12] <humbolt> but man, I don not want to control my TV that way. No.
[0:14] <Nebukadneza> hehe
[0:15] <humbolt> Most programmers think way to complicated, when it comes to interfaces. They want the interface to be able to do anything. Instead of making it work well for what 80% of users want to do with it and forgetting about the rest.
[0:15] * bge (~sticks@86-60-194-238-Dyn-dsl.ssp.fi) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:16] <humbolt> But still, opensource is awsome. The frameworks are great. And at least we have the chance to improve on things.
[0:16] * znode (~znode@ Quit (Ping timeout: 260 seconds)
[0:17] <Nebukadneza> hehe ;)
[0:17] <Nebukadneza> i've also got a strange xbmc problem ATM and trying to find my way through the source
[0:18] <Nebukadneza> for some reason webradio streams (e.g. shoutcast2 addon) buffers only ~10sec, and after ~5-10 minutes the buffer is empty, but it won't stop playing
[0:18] <Nebukadneza> so i get "Playing 12:30 / 10:33", which obviously results in silence
[0:18] <Nebukadneza> even though the internet connection is fast enough, and the streaming server is fast enough
[0:19] * DaQatz (~DB@pool-71-161-101-80.cncdnh.east.myfairpoint.net) Quit (Ping timeout: 246 seconds)

[0:20] * [SkG] (~sconde@unaffiliated/skg/x-897332) Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[0:22] <xbskid> So I just bought a SanDisk 16GB MicroSD card (SU16G) and I'm trying it out with my Pi, but, uh, I'm encountering some strange behavior.
[0:23] <xbskid> When I reboot, the green ACT light stays on and the device won't boot unless I stick the card in my PC, back up, then rewrite the boot files.
[0:23] <Scriven> Anyone found a voltage/amperage meter I can plug into the gpio somewhere, or will I need to diy something?
[0:24] <Scriven> want to measure Rpi and other device draw, as well as battery conditions/usage.
[0:25] * KiltedPi (~Nbane@host-92-30-102-195.as13285.net) Quit (Ping timeout: 256 seconds)
[0:26] * tanuva (~tanuva@e180077061.adsl.alicedsl.de) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:27] <Nebukadneza> xbskid: what distro/package?
[0:27] * tanuva (~tanuva@e180077061.adsl.alicedsl.de) Quit (Quit: Leaving.)
[0:28] <Nebukadneza> i have a sandisk 16gb sdhc class10 card, and most bootloaders/firmwares won't boot from it
[0:28] <Nebukadneza> only raspbian so far
[0:28] <ParkerR> Scriven, You would have to monitor the main power input
[0:28] * znode (~znode@173-252-209-100.take2hosting.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:29] <xbskid> Nebukadneza: It occurs with BerryBoot and Raspbian; I have not tried any others. I have another SanDisk SD card, 1GB, that does not show this behavior.
[0:30] <xbskid> Nebukadneza: It'll boot, but something gets corrupted during reboot.
[0:30] <xbskid> And then it won't boot. :P
[0:30] * m8 (~mor@unaffiliated/m8) Quit (Quit: Sto andando via)
[0:30] <xbskid> And I think mine's a UHS-1-rated card
[0:31] <xbskid> Power cycling does not help
[0:31] <Scriven> ParkerR, I actually want to monitor at 2+ different places: 1) battery itself, 2+: Inputs for each load (pi, lcd, usb hub, etc).
[0:31] * RaycisCharles (RaycisChar@cpc20-lutn10-2-0-cust20.9-3.cable.virginmedia.com) Quit ()
[0:31] <xbskid> I ran md5sum on the files compared to the backups I made, then rewrote to the card, and they're identical.
[0:32] <ParkerR> Scriven, I dont think the GPIO is going to help you there. You would have to be inline on every source you wanted to measure
[0:32] <ParkerR> Or output
[0:32] <Scriven> ParkerR, Will have to fine i2c or spi versions then, I suppose.
[0:33] * zyklon (~zyklon@122-57-187-237.jetstream.xtra.co.nz) Quit (Ping timeout: 256 seconds)
[0:34] * _ember (~ember@89-70-167-63.dynamic.chello.pl) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[0:35] <piney> Scriven, an ADC (analog digital converter) and some resistors to act as a voltage divider would get you voltage readings
[0:35] * com_kieffer (~com_kieff@ Quit (Read error: Operation timed out)
[0:36] <piney> there are a few different ways to do current sensing, i like this approach myself http://www.adafruit.com/products/904
[0:38] <Scriven> Interesting, piney. I don't like the 3.2A maximum, I'd like 5A at least (similar rating to voltage regulator).
[0:38] <Scriven> The maths around this stuff has always screwed my head.
[0:39] <Nebukadneza> xbskid: strange... for me it didn't even boot oO
[0:40] <xbskid> When I run memtester, it also only grabs 190MB
[0:40] <Scriven> It seems there are the things I'm looking for, so at least that gives me hope. lol
[0:42] * Flexnard (~Flex@host-169-126-2-96.midco.net) Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[0:43] * Ballresin (~anonymous@ has joined #raspberrypi
[0:43] * Flexnard (~Flex@host-169-126-2-96.midco.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:45] <piney> Scriven, how accurate?
[0:45] <piney> a CT sensor converts amps to voltage, but they are typically for higher amperage readings
[0:46] <piney> CT sensor is what multimeters use when they clamp a wire to get current readings
[0:46] * znode_ (~znode@ has joined #raspberrypi
[0:47] <xbskid> Okay, so maybe the card is busted.
[0:47] * vivekagr (~vivekagr@ Quit (Ping timeout: 260 seconds)
[0:47] <xbskid> I put BerryBoot on my 1GB normal SD card, booted, installed memtester, rebooted with no issue, and memtester is correctly asking for ~450MB RAM
[0:48] * vivekagr (~vivekagr@ has joined #raspberrypi
[0:49] <Scriven> piney, Well, as accurate as i can w/o it being over expensive or over-my-head to implement. lol
[0:49] * dj_pi (~dj@c-107-5-25-243.hsd1.mi.comcast.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:49] <piney> openenergymonitor uses ct sensors for amps and ADC for voltage readings, they convert the readings to KWh (like the electric meter on the side of your house) and get ~5% accuracy
[0:50] * znode (~znode@173-252-209-100.take2hosting.com) Quit (Ping timeout: 264 seconds)

[1:08] <TAFB_afk> piney: I'm going to be setting my Pi up as a data logger for my little solar panel and battery pack :)
[1:09] <nada0> what kind of data are you logging?
[1:09] <TAFB_afk> current draw between battery pack and solar panel, solar panel output voltage, Pi current draw and battery pack voltage.

[1:12] <nada0> looks interesting
[1:13] <nada0> more advanced then anything I have done with the Pi
[1:13] <SpeedEvil> I need to get my panels setup again.
[1:13] <SpeedEvil> making an AC diode is hard
[1:13] <SpeedEvil> to stop back feeding the grid.
[1:14] <TAFB_afk> I'm using this analog to digital converter: http://www.abelectronics.co.uk/products/3/Raspberry-Pi/17/ADC-Pi-V2---Raspberry-Pi-Analogue-to-Digital-converter
[1:14] <TAFB_afk> I'm using these to measure the current draw of the Pi and of the battery pack: http://www.ebay.com/itm/160898542592

[2:46] <GabrialDestruir> This probably isn't the place to ask, but I was hoping someone here might know, I just recently updated my router and lost a bunch of features (ssh, bandwidth monitor, etc) is it possible to use an rpi as a network bandwidth monitor without having to put it between the router and modem?

[2:48] <chithead> possibly, if the router supports querying that through snmp
[2:49] <GabrialDestruir> I'm not sure it does, it's a Cisco EA4500 running the Cloud Connect software.
[2:51] * Pokstreet (~user@ has joined #raspberrypi
[2:54] <GabrialDestruir> Nope, it doesn't due to being a consumer product.

[2:56] <Pokstreet> hello there, I'm using putty with ssh to log into RP, but now the session seems to be lost (the windows freezed) becasuse of the slow network, how can I reconnet the same session when I restart putty? thanks
[2:56] * znode (~znode@ has joined #raspberrypi
[2:56] <pksato> Pokstreet: no.
[2:57] <Pokstreet> :(
[2:58] <Scriven> Pokstreet, that's why some of us install 'screen' on our shells. So you can leave the shell, but screen hopefully keeps running. Next time you log back into the shell you re-connect to screen and Bam, everything's back.
[2:58] <pksato> Use screen or similar to keep session, between tty reopens. screen run on server side.
[2:59] <GabrialDestruir> Screen is a wonderful program.

[3:04] <imperia> hello. i am running raspbian. i installed 'aptitude install openarena', but when i run the executable it can't find the opengl hardware. so does this package works out of the box or i have to install something else? maybe the package changed because openarena was working on my previous installation.
[3:04] <GabrialDestruir> Oh yay... my raspbmc doesn't want to see my windows shares by default... yay!

[3:09] <chithead> screen and tmux are bloatware compared to dtach+dvtm
[3:12] <GabrialDestruir> Is there a way to put a device into promiscuous mode and calculate bandwidth that way? >.>
[3:13] <chithead> maybe if you perform a mac flooding attack on your switch. but that might skew your calculations
[3:14] <GabrialDestruir> Hmm. ARP Poisoning... man in the middle... that could work.
[3:18] <SebastianFlyte> I was wondering in a Pi running Adafruit can mount a USB portable hard drive, either FAT or NTFS??

[4:05] <TAFB_afk> the box that page is running on doesn't support cpu temp query :(
[4:07] <xbskid> So, weird occurrence; my Pi booted my 16gig SD card, and memtester is actually detecting and getting more RAM than with the 1GB card
[4:08] <tzarc> is the gfx mem set differently?
[4:09] <xbskid> Nope. Same files, same installation steps, same mem-split
[4:10] <xbskid> Only difference I can find is my Pi runs my 1GB normal SD card with no issues, but reboots do something to the 16GB MicroSDHC card that prevent it from booting after a shutdown

[4:38] <s5fs> xbskid: i do all my rpi work via serial, it's dead easy. single cable provides power and data, perfect for what i need.

[5:20] <Scriven> piney, I'm afraid to make a similar leap. Never was great at C, but wanted to be. lol!
[5:20] <Xark> piney: It is a good language (and none look likely to totally replace it anytime soon), but it does force you to be careful and pay attention. :)

[5:26] <ParkerR> Ok since there are more people active: anyone using the Pi status page?

[7:19] <ShiftPlusOne> do it
[7:20] <ShiftPlusOne> for some reason it takes a lot of heat to melt the solder though =(
[7:20] <SwK> yeah
[7:20] <SwK> lotta mass to those tabs
[7:20] <Grievar> for some reason other than it's lead-free?
[7:21] <ShiftPlusOne> Even mass aside, just removing a diode took ages.
[7:21] <anish[1]> @ShiftPlusOne:last question:will ubuntu 10.10 will pose any problems in creating a image?I think downloaded tools of raspberry pi should be enough.

[7:32] <SwK> its been a long time since I had boards spun
[7:33] <Viper-7> ShiftPlusOne: nice, but not a fan of needing a real receiver module
[7:33] <anish[1]> and one more thing yesterday I noticed.When I was using dd bs=4M and was using this flash the wheezy or all the downloaded images raspberry pi was not booting so when I started trying out the windows image downloader tool and it worked.I wonder what is the problem.
[7:33] <Viper-7> should be easy enough to bandpass the 38kHz signal in software, but looks like that module doesnt support it
[7:33] <Viper-7> maybe ill get coding >:D
[7:33] <ShiftPlusOne> Good luck
[7:34] <neirpyc> Dangit! Was tired of my WiFi constantly dropping on the Pi so I went through the motions of setting up an actual wired router and I don't have a spare LAN cable anywhere in the house...
[7:34] <Viper-7> timing issues on the pi will give me grief im sure
[7:34] <ShiftPlusOne> I don't have a clue about digital filtering
[7:34] <Viper-7> maybe edge detection will save me there, but thats a whole lot of interrupts :S
[7:34] * nimmis|work (~kjell@fenix.its.ltu.se) has joined #raspberrypi
[7:35] <Viper-7> the pi can only decode up to about 100Hz in software reliably
[7:35] <Viper-7> thanks to the kernel ninjaing time when it feels like it
[7:35] <anunnaki> neirpyc: did you have a hdmi adaptor connected?
[7:35] <ShiftPlusOne> What about the real time patches for the kernel?
[7:35] <Viper-7> even with them
[7:36] <ShiftPlusOne> hm
[7:36] <Viper-7> they help, and get the maximum delay time for a process scheduled for real-time to just under 10ms
[7:36] <ShiftPlusOne> And using an attiny or something isn't something you want to do?
[7:36] <neirpyc> anunnaki: Yeah, to the TV. Why?
[7:36] <Viper-7> but yeah, that gives you a nyquist of like 50Hz
[7:36] <Viper-7> well i intially thought about doing this with a USB PIC
[7:37] <Viper-7> it`d be nicer to use the gpio, but im too cheap to spend the $0.50 on a real IR receiver module :P
[7:37] <Viper-7> (more like dont want to wait for it)
[7:37] <anunnaki> neirpyc: i read in a couple forums of people having bad wifi connection, and it was they were the ones who used the adaptors. I guess the adaptors arent shielded well and interfere with the frequency
[7:38] <ShiftPlusOne> I doubt you'll code up anything faster than the time it takes to receive the module >_<
[7:38] <SwK> Viper-7: you could wire up something like a ATtiny45 to the i2c bus
[7:38] <Viper-7> SwK: i`d sooner just use USB
[7:38] <neirpyc> anunnaki: Ah, it's not the signal. It's my adaptor itself. It needs more power than the Pi can deal with so if too many connections hit it at once it just turns off.
[7:38] <Viper-7> my i2c channels are usually in use ;)
[7:39] <Viper-7> ShiftPlusOne: well in theory, the whole process should be as simple as setting a gpio pin to input, enabling the pull-up resistor, and connecting an IR receiver diode directly between that GPIO pin and ground
[7:39] <SwK> more then 7 bits worth of addressing?
[7:39] <Viper-7> the rest should be possible in software
[7:39] <ShiftPlusOne> Viper-7, I think I've seen that done already.
[7:39] <ShiftPlusOne> I think if you exercise your google-fu, you'll find it.
[7:40] <SwK> http://funduino.blogspot.com/2012/02/tiny-ananta.html that
[7:40] <Viper-7> ShiftPlusOne: kinda why i was asking here :)
[7:40] <Viper-7> SwK: nope, but its already carrying data bursts which saturate the bus from a single address for short periods
[7:40] <Viper-7> and sif tiny :P MSP430 or PIC ftw :D
[7:41] <SwK> Viper-7: http://www.ti.com/lit/an/slaa330/slaa330.pdf
[7:41] <Viper-7> i wonder if i can just constantly shift in from SPI at 76kbit
[7:42] <SwK> with the MSP430 as an i2c slave
[7:42] <Viper-7> SwK: lol yeah, i have several doing that atm ;)
[7:42] <Viper-7> the main i2c slave is a parallax propeller tho
[7:42] <SwK> that particular datasheet shows IR also
[7:43] <Viper-7> SPI @ 76kbit should give me nyquist for 38kHz, and the RPi`s hardware buffer should sort my timing issues out
[7:43] <Viper-7> band-pass and decode, and im golden
[7:43] <Viper-7> the only issue there will be gain
[7:43] <Viper-7> i doubt the IR receiver will give a clean logic signal :P
[7:44] <SwK> that propeller looks interesting
[7:44] <Viper-7> the pad drive strength and programmable pull-up are unrelated arent they?
[7:45] <piney> I want to make my msp430 in to a real time clock for the pi and communicate over i2c. i haven't programmed an msp430 yet though, and will start simpler than that.
[7:45] <SpeedEvil> IR receiver modules do give pretty much logic out
[7:45] <Viper-7> i cant adjust the strength of the pull-up when in input mode?
[7:45] <Viper-7> SpeedEvil: IR receiver diode, not a module with actual decoding
[7:45] <Viper-7> aka, 2 pins, not 3
[7:45] <SpeedEvil> sure
[7:45] <SpeedEvil> doing that right is annoying
[7:46] <SpeedEvil> the modules have filtering, gain, all in one blob
[7:48] <Viper-7> programmable pull-up has a fixed 10k resistor
[7:48] <Viper-7> bugger :<

[8:56] <MrDrake> Hi, can anyone here help with sharing the internet via ethernet with Mac OS X?
[8:56] <ShiftPlusOne> probably, but a mac channel might be more helpful.
[8:57] <MrDrake> This is a Pi specific question
[8:57] <ShiftPlusOne> not really, most of what needs to be done will be done on the mac.
[8:57] <Triffid_Hunter> MrDrake: how is it pi specific?
[8:58] <MrDrake> Because I want to share the internet with the Pi
[8:58] <Triffid_Hunter> MrDrake: when your mac is set up to do dns forwarding, nat routing and dhcp server then it doesn't matter what's on the ethernet port; it'll be able to get internet
[8:58] <MrDrake> And I've tried all sorts of changes to /etc/network/interfaces and /etc/resolv.conf without any luck so far
[8:59] <Triffid_Hunter> MrDrake: you have to change things on the mac if you want the mac to act as a nat router
[8:59] <ShiftPlusOne> There is nothing special you need to do on the pi to get it to work. If you have a dhcp server of some sort running on your mac and have the connection forwarded, it will work straight away.
[8:59] <MrDrake> Ahhh so perhaps it is on my Mac end...
[8:59] <ShiftPlusOne> Is it going to be a static IP or is there a dhcp server?
[9:00] <MrDrake> I have set my Pi up with static IP
[9:01] <MrDrake> My Mac has DHCP with custom IP
[9:01] <Triffid_Hunter> MrDrake: well if your pi has static ip, then set mac as gateway and dns server, rest is done on the mac
[9:02] <MrDrake> I've tried setting the gateway and nameserver as the Mac IP, but still nothing. Is there something else I'm missing?
[9:03] <Triffid_Hunter> MrDrake: most likely your mac isn't set up to perform NAT routing between the two interfaces
[9:03] <ShiftPlusOne> Only you can know that. Either read more about networking or follow a clear step-by-step guide. This is not a pi specific question so there should be lots of resources out there, just search for mac to linux connection sharing.

[14:57] <Weaselweb> TomWij: having a compiler to compile itself is default on gentoo
[14:57] <anew> i dont understand how it's dangrous to do
[14:57] <TomWij> It's probably protected against it since both sides have the same end, but there are kinds of cables where this can end up frying the port(s).
[14:58] <metaman> i would like to connect an old telephone to my raspberry pi, so that it rings me up on changed dyn ip (this happens unregularly), so that i can call it back and it tts me the new ip. has anyone heard of something like that and do you think it is posible?
[14:58] <TomWij> anew: Yes, it is used to connect it to a monitor, which has an "input" port for it. But the ports on both your RPi and Laptop are most likely "output". The video data can only go from "output" to "input".
[14:58] <TomWij> If both sides are sending out video data, but no side is listening, there isn't going to happen much.
[14:58] <anew> ok
[14:58] <anew> damn
[14:59] <anew> so if i connect to my network can i ssh into it before i put an os on it ?
[14:59] <gordonDrogon> metaman, you need an analog telephone adapter (ATA) to connect your old telephone to. These hae Ethernet ports. You then need to run something on the Pi like Asterisk (a software PBX) then you need to write some software to get asterisk to call the phone when the Pi detects a changed IP address. Good luck.

[15:06] <Hodapp> cityLights: if it's a single-ganged push button, it probably has only two terminals, maybe three.
[15:07] <Hodapp> cityLights: what are you trying to do?
[15:07] <cityLights> right, I am asking about the electronic side
[15:07] <cityLights> which resistors and which capacitor
[15:07] <gordonDrogon> cityLights, wires?
[15:07] <cityLights> I want to have a push button
[15:08] <gordonDrogon> cityLights, for a switch you don't need resistors or capacitors.

[15:09] <cityLights> protect
[15:09] <cityLights> protect from noise
[15:09] <gordonDrogon> the Pi's GPIOs have internal pull up and pull-downs which you can activate via software.
[15:10] <cityLights> really?
[15:10] <hellsing> for a switch on only need an anti bounce in your code
[15:10] <cityLights> how?
[15:10] <gordonDrogon> cityLights, You do not want a capacitor in parallel.

[15:11] <cityLights> yes the noise the switch makes
[15:11] <hellsing> even if you commute up to 10khz (and you re fast)
[15:11] <gordonDrogon> bounce?
[15:11] <Hodapp> I'm assuming he's referring to the bounce that's inherent in most mechanical switches
[15:11] <cityLights> mechanical noise turns to electrical noise
[15:11] * mike_t (~mike@ has joined #raspberrypi
[15:11] <hellsing> yeah the bounce, but in the code you manage it
[15:11] <gordonDrogon> well you're wrong.
[15:11] <gordonDrogon> bounce yes, noise no.
[15:12] <cityLights> ok sir
[15:12] <gordonDrogon> go read some simple electronics & circuit diagrams
[15:12] <cityLights> how to activate the pull ups?
[15:12] <gordonDrogon> Actually, do you have a Pi in front of you?
[15:12] <cityLights> yes I do
[15:12] <hellsing> the electrical noise of a switch must be very small, the noise come from thermic noise and 1/f...
[15:12] <gordonDrogon> turn it over.
[15:13] <cityLights> ok
[15:13] <gordonDrogon> look at the SD card. IT has a swtich in it. Look at it. Look at it on the circuit diagram. You will not find a capacitor or a resistor between that switch and the Pi's GPIO.
[15:13] <cityLights> min, call
[15:15] <Hodapp> debouncing in software is going to handle most of this.

[15:18] <Hodapp> not to mention - how much do you even need debouncing, unless you're setting up something like rising-edge interrupts?
[15:19] <gordonDrogon> I've found the cheap PCB button types bounce for 1-5ms typically.
[15:19] <gordonDrogon> so even a crude 20mS delay is enough.
[15:19] <hellsing> no debouncing is needed with push switch
[15:20] <gordonDrogon> if you say so.
[15:20] <hellsing> was responding to Hodapp
[15:20] <Hodapp> hellsing: pretty much all mechanical switches are going to have bounce that you can see on a scope if you look.
[15:20] <hellsing> a delay can act as a good debouncing indeed

[15:21] <hellsing> yes i know, that why i told to use debouncing code :p
[15:21] <Hodapp> you said no debouncing is needed.
[15:21] <hellsing> ok i get it: no, debouncing
[15:21] <hellsing> sorry typo error
[15:21] <Hodapp> :)
[15:22] <gordonDrogon> I think I'll go get some lunch. switches need debouncing. the Pi has internal pull up/down resistors. people like to make things complicated for themselves for no real reason, so who am I to tell them otherwise!!!

[17:48] <mundofr> hey there, i'm very interested in starting a new project based off rpi's
[17:48] <mundofr> the thing is, i'm currently studying away and buying all the requirements for my rpi is not an option atm (small monitor, keyboard, etc..)
[17:48] * Gadget-Mac (~swp@ has joined #raspberrypi
[17:49] <mundofr> and it occurred to me that maybe I could use my own laptop as a HMI for my rpi
[17:49] * jimerickson (~jimericks@pdpc/supporter/active/jimerickson) has joined #raspberrypi
[17:49] <mundofr> i've already checked an the VNC route is very possible and doable
[17:49] <mundofr> and that's what i'm thinking
[17:49] <Twist-> Kind of.. you'll need a monitor and keyboard to do the initial setup.
[17:50] * Orion_ (~Orion_@ has joined #raspberrypi
[17:50] <mundofr> however, i havent been able to find any reference for the setup WITHOUT using direct hardware
[17:50] <gordonDrogon> You can ssh into raspbian from when it's first booted - no scren & keyboard needed - just LAN
[17:50] <mundofr> that's exactly what i was about to ask :P
[17:50] <mundofr> is there some default way to connect to the rpi?
[17:50] <gordonDrogon> So connect Pi to LAN, put in raspbian SD card image, boot Pi - then you need to work out it's IP address and SSH in - user pi pass raspberry
[17:50] <Twist-> gordonDrogon: really? I thought I had to explicitly enable remote ssh in the setup util the first time through
[17:51] <gordonDrogon> Twist-, originally yes, but that's not been the case for quite some time now.
[17:51] <mundofr> the other thing I thought was to modify the os in the sd from my laptop
[17:51] <mundofr> i dunno, insert some custom cronjob somewhere that automatically boots it up with ssh enabled or something
[17:51] <gordonDrogon> only if your laptop runs Linux.
[17:52] <mundofr> couldn't it work with os x?
[17:52] <gordonDrogon> if os x can read ext4 then yes.
[17:52] <mundofr> i've never had any trouble managing remote servers via ssh
[17:52] <mundofr> i think i might be able
[17:52] <mundofr> my local freenas runs on ext iirc
[17:53] <gordonDrogon> howeve you don't need to - just boot raspbian and find the IP address and ssh into it.
[17:53] <mundofr> and i think i've been able to connect the hdd directly to my laptop

[18:10] * chod (~chod@toy-town.demon.co.uk) has joined #raspberrypi
[18:10] <metaman> i think so too, but actually you could port some c compiler when you can assemble, the thing is that not linux is not the only os to enable you coding anything, but it is the one which makes it most easy, as you will get whole lots of support by kind people like you, thank you
[18:10] <mundofr> we've written the backend using python-rpc
[18:10] <mundofr> sending short json packets back and forth
[18:12] <mundofr> that's why I asked about python, to try and simplify the system, but anything's good actually

[18:13] <Twist-> mundofr: side note.. X11 performance is pretty bad at present.
[18:14] <mundofr> atm we don't have plans for the gpio pins, but maybe eventually we'll develop some kind of locking mechanism or so
[18:14] <gordonDrogon> I looked at some free epos software a couple of years ago too - way before the Pi. Biggest issue is the physical form of it all.
[18:14] <mundofr> how are the python libraries for interfacing with the gpio pins at the moment?
[18:14] <gordonDrogon> they work.
[18:15] <mjr> apropos X11 performance not, I was quite positively surprised with chromium (browser) performance in X11, mostly due to having low expectations. It wasn't completely horrible after all ;)
[18:15] <mjr> s/not/note/
[18:15] <mundofr> and what about touchscreen support?
[18:15] <mundofr> will the X11 perfomance make a crappy user experience?
[18:15] <Twist-> Midori was a pile of.. something.
[18:16] <mundofr> I mean, i'm gonna test this all eventually, but a heads up is always nice :D

[18:17] <scummos> ah, okay.
[18:17] <gordonDrogon> something like an epos system with mostly static displays will work just fine. I've done stuff using SDL on the Pi and it runs OK - no hardware acelleration, but it's fine.

[18:17] <Twist-> scrolling
[18:17] <scummos> sorry, I jumped into the discussion from somewhere ;)
[18:17] <mundofr> gordonDrogon: yup, that's pretty much it :D
[18:17] <Twist-> the GPU is pretty strong, from what I've seen
[18:17] <Twist-> it's just missing a decent x11 driver
[18:18] <mundofr> i'm certain that our bottleneck will be the physical design of the terminals
[18:18] <mundofr> but the pi certainly opens up many design possibilities
[18:18] <gordonDrogon> that's what we faced - althoug there are lots of PC platforms - miniITX boards and things like till drawers with a 5v solenoid input out there - none too cheap though.

[18:22] <gordonDrogon> however the Rev 2 boards are better in that respect.
[18:22] <Twist-> And then watch the hub fry your pi. or not.
[18:22] <mundofr> are there / will there be cellphone-based (as in, low power) 3g adapters?
[18:22] <gordonDrogon> unlkkely. at least it's not happened to me and I've not heard of it happening to anyone else...

[18:26] <mundofr> sweeet!
[18:26] <mundofr> i think i'll officially say bye to my arduinos
[18:27] <unkle_george> Could I get some peer review of a tutorial I put together on building a kernel module to read a temperature sensor
[18:27] <unkle_george> http://www.bitflippersanonymous.com/raspberry-pi-projects/i2c-temperature
[18:27] <Twist-> mundofr: The Pi and the Arduino don't really fill the same niche
[18:27] * [SLB]` is now known as [SLB]
[18:28] <mundofr> haha yes I know
[18:28] <mundofr> still, I think most of my free time will now be dedicated to the pi
[18:28] <Twist-> They work nicely together in fact
[18:28] <unkle_george> I could use some feedback on the content, esp. the latter part of how to use the module
[18:28] <mundofr> have you tried the new 32bit arduino?
[18:28] <Twist-> Heh.. the Pi is the same price or cheaper than the arduino ethernet shield.
[18:28] <Twist-> so it makes a nice front end
[18:29] <gordonDrogon> mundofr, arduinos have their place.
[18:29] <gordonDrogon> mundofr, the Pi is not as good as an arduino for 'hard' real time control.

[18:33] <Torikun> it wont be
[18:33] <Torikun> ;lool
[18:34] * IT_Sean is running OpenELEC on his raspi, for xbmc
[18:34] <Torikun> hows it working IT_Sean?
[18:34] <Torikun> OpenELEC was more stable than raspbianXBMC
[18:36] <gordonDrogon> mundofr, why not go right now and order a Pi?
[18:36] <gordonDrogon> save all this asking on forums/irc, etc. :)
[18:36] <gordonDrogon> just do it...
[18:36] <mundofr> that's what i'm doing atm :D
[18:36] <mundofr> but it's gonna be a loooong week
[18:36] <mundofr> haha
[18:37] <mundofr> thanks again for the help btw
[18:37] <mundofr> you guys were the deciding factor ;)
[18:37] <Twist-> mundofr: Also, have several SD or SDHC cards.

[19:42] <Caleb> subv: try a few and decide for youself
[19:42] <|Jeroen|> openelec
[19:43] <angelos> depends on what you want to do
[19:43] <angelos> if xbmc is all you want, I'd also say openelec
[19:43] <subv> play HD content no sync issues
[19:43] <angelos> if you want more, raspbmc or xbian - while I'd say you have the most control with xbian
[19:43] <subv> im running xbian
[19:43] <angelos> well, video playback is the same on all three
[19:43] <angelos> I never had sync issues on xbian
[19:44] <subv> maybe its this file
[19:44] <hellsing> <metaman> Ben-, right now RaspBMC is best-> previous answer
[19:44] <ShiftPlusOne> I also vote openelec, but it's a personal preference
[19:45] <Ben-> so one says raspbmc, one says xbian, another one says openelex
[19:45] <Ben-> -x+c
[19:45] <Ben-> :f
[19:45] <subv> im going to try
[19:45] <angelos> buy three sd cards :P

[21:50] <Amnesia> what does the bootloader look for?
[21:50] <Martin-I-DE-NRW> VetteWork: and then I should switch off the pin where the LED is connected to?
[21:50] <IT_Sean> You need to write the OS image to the card, following the instructions on the website

[21:50] * m8 (~mor@unaffiliated/m8) has joined #raspberrypi
[21:50] <zleap> Amnesia, the .img file is a image of the file system, you need to use dd to directly write the whole image to the card, if it works once booted you can make the file system the same size as the card

[22:45] <mjr> power doesn't really enter into it (directly); windows is not pi-compatible
[22:45] <anew> ok
[22:45] <mjr> certainly you can do word processing on it though...
[22:45] * jimerickson (~jimericks@pdpc/supporter/active/jimerickson) Quit (Ping timeout: 240 seconds)
[22:45] <IT_Sean> anew: no, the Pi cannot run windows.
[22:45] <mjr> libreoffice might be a bit of a stretch (didn't think to try actually), but there's lighter options like abiword

[22:47] <anew> hmmm so i booted the pi with the sd inserted, but still nothing on my dhcp
[22:48] <dwatkins> do you have a screen connected to it, anew?
[22:48] <anew> no :( i dont have a television
[22:48] <subv> ok so anew doesn't have a tv to connect to.. he is running a preloaded sd card with some sort of debian... first boot... and he can't get an ip address.
[22:48] <subv> my guess its asking for initial setup of some sort
[22:48] * Armand (~martin@87-194-165-154.bethere.co.uk) has joined #raspberrypi

[22:49] <anew> no monitor/no tv
[22:49] <anew> yes i'm logged into the router right now
[22:49] <dwatkins> anew: no video input on your laptop either, I take it
[22:49] <dwatkins> just considering other options
[22:50] <anew> well i have an hdmi port, but afaik that wont work
[22:50] <subv> and the ethernet cable is good... and not a cross over?
[22:50] <anew> yes ethernet works on my laptop
[22:50] <subv> anew: hdmi on laptop is normally output
[22:50] * _cheney (~cheney@ has joined #raspberrypi
[22:50] <anew> yes it's output afaik
[22:50] <ShiftPlusOne> doesn't matter if it's a crossover.
[22:50] * gr4yscale (~gr4yscale@107-1-54-178-ip-static.hfc.comcastbusiness.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[22:50] <subv> no i mean the ethernet connected to your RPi... try another cable
[22:50] <Scriven> rpi can handle crossover cables properly.
[22:50] <subv> and do you see lan activity lights?
[22:51] <Scriven> Can't remember what that's called, but it hasn't been an issue for ages.
[22:51] <subv> Scriven / ShiftPlusOne : so im realizing.. which is a cool feature
[22:51] <dwatkins> auto negotiation, iirc, Scriven
[22:51] <subv> wait so you can connect a straight cable from laptop to rpi and it will communciate?
[22:51] <IT_Sean> yes
[22:51] <anew> the pi gives me red/yellow/green lights
[22:51] <dwatkins> I thought that was only possible on gigabit ports.
[22:51] <subv> beautiful

[22:53] <IT_Sean> it never occured to either of you to just see if it worked, before hacking up a cable?
[22:53] <KiltedPi> What could you do, with a straight through hooked up to Rpi?
[22:53] <Scriven> IT_Sean, I haven't done it in enough years that MDI wasn't an issue. lol

[22:53] <Scriven> this was 'back in the day', as it were.
[22:53] <subv> ok anew... best bet... is connect that bad boy directly to your laptop and share internet.. and see if you can guess the ip address or something lol im sure there is a way
[22:53] <anew> connect the rpi to my laptop?
[22:53] <anew> with what ?
[22:53] <subv> yea via ethernet
[22:53] <KiltedPi> Straight through cable
[22:53] <IT_Sean> KiltedPi: the same you could do with any two other computers connected. Share files from one to the other... share out an internet connection, etc...
[22:54] <KiltedPi> ethernet
[22:54] <KiltedPi> heh
[22:54] <KiltedPi> Saves me swapping my sd card out, ta!
[22:54] <KiltedPi> I've ordered a load of RJ45 connectors too
[22:54] <anew> so connect ethernet to laptop... but then wouldnt it have the same ip as my laptop ?
[22:54] <subv> share the wifi to the lan.. which will assign the rpi an ip address until you can properly configure it?
[22:54] <KiltedPi> No. DHCP
[22:55] <KiltedPi> DHCP is quite hard to get your head around as a beginner I think-
[22:55] <anew> so wifi from laptop to router
[22:55] <KiltedPi> Took me a while, and I'm a cisco engineer!
[22:55] * Mr_P (~gerhard@chello080108255018.3.14.vie.surfer.at) has joined #raspberrypi

[22:55] * IT_Sean (~Ult_Ubunt@applefritter/IRCStaff/UltimateMacUser1) Quit (Quit: poof)
[22:55] <anew> and figure out the ip from there ?
[22:55] <anew> well let me plug it in and see what happens
[22:56] <subv> you can either download a free dhcp server for windows... if thats your flavor.
[22:56] <anew> actually wait
[22:56] <anew> we have life
[22:56] <subv> and let it assign the ipaddress for you ... this should atleast let you assign a static address and reconnect it back to your network
[22:56] <anew> if that's my wife on her phone i'm going to kill her :)
[22:56] <KiltedPi> :D
[22:56] <KiltedPi> Bloody wives.

[23:56] <KiltedPi> yeah its desc is "Simple text editor" thats all I'm after
[23:56] <KiltedPi> It has fonts/font colors etc?
[23:56] <subv> its cli
[23:56] <subv> commandline.. no gui.
[23:56] <Dyskette> It has support for colours though only for markup, not actual font properties.
[23:57] <subv> but it is smart to suppor color for tags and markups
[23:57] <Dyskette> It's a plaintext editor, it produces plain text :P

[23:57] <KiltedPi> I need something akin to msWord
