[0:12] <KiltedPi> sounds sily-
[0:12] <KiltedPi> But-
[0:12] <KiltedPi> How do run somethin'-
[0:13] <KiltedPi> after I've 'apt-get installed' it?
[0:13] <KiltedPi> i went with gedit in the end :)
[0:13] <subv> its probably buried in the menu somewhere.. or you can alt+f2
[0:13] <subv> and bring up the run prompt
[0:13] <subv> start typing your command there... like gedit
[0:14] <KiltedPi> ah
[0:14] <KiltedPi> no joy still
[0:14] <KiltedPi> But the apt-get did generate a load of nonsense
[0:15] <KiltedPi> I'm not using GNOME either-
[0:15] <KiltedPi> I'm using Raspbian- would that affect it?

[0:20] <subv> see if that pops up the eyes
[0:20] <anew> command not found
[0:20] <subv> what is another command...

[0:21] <anew> ys
[0:21] <anew> wheezy
[0:21] <Dyskette> It doesn't use xterm
[0:21] <Dyskette> Is it like lxterm or something it has instead?

[1:06] <RiXtEr> Hey guys, just got my first pi, loaded up my sd card (using dd from ubuntu) and it looked to be ok, hooked it all up and I get nothing on my screen... how long should it take for something to come up ?
[1:06] <pksato> RiXtEr: hdmi?
[1:07] <RiXtEr> pksato, tried both
[1:07] <RiXtEr> pksato, hdmi never 'kicks on' my monitor...
[1:08] <RiXtEr> it just flashes like its waiting for input.
[1:08] <pksato> ACT led flash?
[1:08] <RiXtEr> no, just power, should act only flash with network though?
[1:08] <RiXtEr> (and is network required?)
[1:08] * jdpond (~jdpond@mediawiki/jpond) Quit (Quit: Leaving.)
[1:08] <IT_Sean> ntwk is NOT required
[1:08] <IT_Sean> how did you write the image to the SD card?
[1:09] <RiXtEr> ok thanks :)
[1:09] <IT_Sean> Oh, you said DD from 'buntu, nevermind
[1:09] <IT_Sean> Okay... is ACT flashing?
[1:09] * bge (~sticks@86-60-194-238-Dyn-dsl.ssp.fi) Quit (Ping timeout: 260 seconds)
[1:09] <RiXtEr> http://paste.ubuntu.com/5566387/
[1:09] <IT_Sean> If ACT isn't flashing, it sounds like it isn't reading your SD card.
[1:09] <RiXtEr> looks like a good write...
[1:10] <RiXtEr> let me see if ubuntu sees the info on the card.
[1:10] <linuxstb> RiXtEr: You should write to /dev/sdb, not /dev/sdb1
[1:10] <ShiftPlusOne> RiXtEr, bad RiXtEr, bad!
[1:10] <ShiftPlusOne> write to the disk, not the partition
[1:10] <RiXtEr> ah
[1:10] <RiXtEr> done this before... ;) /me facepalms :)
[1:11] <RiXtEr> not my first DD mistake :)
[1:11] <RiXtEr> thanks guys!
[1:11] <ShiftPlusOne> you're the second one today to do the same thing
[1:11] <RiXtEr> well, I am not new to linux... so i really feel bad now... ugh.
[1:11] <ShiftPlusOne> heh
[1:11] <RiXtEr> too exicted to get it booting to pay close attention :)
[1:12] <pksato> I some times try do create parttion on partition device (fdisk /dev/sda1)
[1:12] * Retrospect (~Saicho@5ED312C6.cm-7-4a.dynamic.ziggo.nl) Quit (Ping timeout: 260 seconds)
[1:12] <RiXtEr> well.. 401 seconds from now I have a new card ;)
[1:12] * hyperair (~hyperair@ubuntu/member/hyperair) Quit (Ping timeout: 260 seconds)
[1:13] <RiXtEr> so is there no 'bios' screen on this ?
[1:13] <pksato> no.
[1:14] <RiXtEr> ok thanks again!
[1:14] <Firehopper> okay, how do I make it so the wifi auto connects on boot?
[1:14] <pksato> RPi dont have onboard rom like memory.
[1:14] <Firehopper> I used X to get it working, but how do I make it auto connect? or does it do that now?
[1:14] <pksato> except. gpu rom mask.

[1:27] * mgottschlag (~quassel@reactos/tester/phoenix64) Quit (Ping timeout: 272 seconds)
[1:27] <lastebil> just wondering if anyone else noted that the steam linux thing is distributing the Conquest of Elesium 3 raspberry pi binary.
[1:27] <lastebil> (probaby on osX and Windows too, dunno, haven't downloaded it there (: )
[1:28] * lastebil also can't spell Elesium.
[1:28] * Mr_Sheesh (~mr_s@unaffiliated/mr-sheesh/x-0757054) Quit (Ping timeout: 256 seconds)
[1:28] <ShiftPlusOne> steam? raspberry pi? wha?
[1:28] <lastebil> yeah, I was shocked - I noted the "arm" file there, and - well, started looking (:
[1:28] <lastebil> developers added support for the pi in January - turns out, apparently, the steam bundle sends the pi version over when you download thru steam.
[1:29] <ShiftPlusOne> Sounds plausible... I thought you were insane there for a second. Nice!
[1:29] <lastebil> well, I'm not sure I'm _not_ insane, but I did have to double check myself (:
[1:30] * sphenxes (~sphenxes@91-119-55-227.dynamic.xdsl-line.inode.at) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[1:30] <ShiftPlusOne> Looks wesnothy
[1:31] * UnaClocker (~una@c-67-185-8-139.hsd1.wa.comcast.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:31] <lastebil> it's ... kinda wesnothy, but less hex and more "17 different beings with different skill trees"
[1:32] * SgrA (~sgra@unaffiliated/sgra) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:32] <lastebil> from a "wargame" perspective, yes, it suffers from the 'diagonals should cost more but don't' thing, but as terrain affects that more, it evens out.
[1:32] * slysir (~mike@74.110.54.228) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:32] * jdpond (~jdpond@mediawiki/jpond) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:33] <lastebil> anyway, thought it was interesting as it's some folks actively developing for the pi (:
[1:34] <lastebil> (also I noted I'd have to twiddle some things to get it to run under arch, it's staticly linked and runs fine on raspbian, but arch will need some fiddling.)
[1:35] <lastebil> on another note, watched the weyland thing from linux.au and the pi was mentioned there for Weyland. Tried to build it, but it's progressed a bit and the build instructions on the weyland site no longer work.
[1:35] <lastebil> found another fellow's binary builds on the pi forums - wondering if anyone here has fiddled with them and if they still work on the latest pi firmware/raspbian.
[1:35] * lastebil is ok if no one has, he can test (:

[1:52] <wictor> I'm good

[1:52] <RiXtEr> me too..
[1:53] <Kanerix> Mine's playing movies

[1:54] <wictor> it isn't about "selling"
[1:55] <wictor> they teach too
[1:55] <wictor> visit http://learn.adafruit.com/
[1:55] <RiXtEr> (right now I have an old 34 pin floppy cable I may mess with until my stuff arrives)
[1:55] <wictor> Raspberry Pi section, you might find some interesting stuff
[1:55] <RiXtEr> Nice

[2:04] <wictor> ;)
[2:04] <wictor> I was reading the website!
[2:04] <senoraraton> I have been looking for information on the video card on the raspberry PI. Is the PI able to play videos from a USB external hard drive?
[2:05] <pksato> can do.

[2:05] <senoraraton> Are there any concerns? Will it support any HDMI monitor I hook it up to?
[2:06] <pksato> yes
[2:06] <Kanerix> senoraraton: it's a SOC. Essentially, the processor IS the gpu and cpu
[2:06] <Kanerix> and every other component
[2:06] <pksato> use powered external HDD.

[2:06] <Kanerix> The machine will only boot from the SD Card
[2:07] <Kanerix> but external storage works fine, as long as it is externally powered. Otherwise, you'll brownout the board and weird things happen
[2:07] <senoraraton> I'm not booting from the hard drive, just using it to host videos.
[2:07] <Kanerix> as pksato mentioned
[2:07] <Kanerix> yeah, should work
[2:07] <Kanerix> I don't know what kind of performance you'll get, but still

[2:10] <Kanerix> That's a lot of work
[2:10] <pksato> senoraraton: RPi is a computer, like anu others, but, very small.
[2:11] <Kanerix> It's also not x86 architecture
[2:11] <senoraraton> I was wondering about components though, I will need an external bluetooth adapter right?
[2:11] <Kanerix> There is no wireless communication in the device whatsoever
[2:11] <Kanerix> There are USB ports

[2:13] <pksato> if you can use bt to control programas on you linux desktop computer. also, it's can do on RPi.
[2:13] <Kanerix> Aye. You may need to recompile it, though

[3:00] <karadorde> was it a pain?
[3:00] <karadorde> what operating system are you using?
[3:02] <Firehopper> I'm running raspbian
[3:03] <Firehopper> and I plugged it in, startx and clicked on the wifi thing. scanned for my ap, and connected..
[3:03] <Firehopper> then exited x
[3:03] <Firehopper> and it was working, rebooted and it auto connected after reboot..
[3:03] <Firehopper> dont know what I did. :)
[3:04] <karadorde> ah, didn't know if you had to tweak anything in a settings file or something to that effect.
[3:04] <Firehopper> I didnt..
[3:04] <Firehopper> dont know if you do..
[3:04] <Firehopper> it was a usb thing I got off ebay.. paid $10 for it
[3:04] <Firehopper> and it seems to work just fine
[3:04] <karadorde> not sure if i would. i would have to tinker down the line if i bought a wifi dongle
[3:05] <Firehopper> its a n adaptor

[3:05] <karadorde> ah, damn
[3:06] <Firehopper> raspbian had ssh installed ,I just had to turn it on.
[3:06] <karadorde> hmm
[3:07] <karadorde> i am using Arch. i want to say it has it installed.
[3:07] <karadorde> will have to look later.

[3:10] <karadorde> something in mind for that?

[3:10] <Firehopper> was just something to protect the rpi port
[3:10] <Firehopper> dont wanna burn something out

[7:44] <Coffe> could one supply the power to the pi in any other way then by the usb ? do it need anything else then +5v ?
[7:45] <SwK> Coffe: i power mine off the usb hub, but make sure you are inputting power via the power in connector, not trying to backfeed it from the USB A ports
[7:45] <SwK> you also need a hub that can handle the power load
[7:46] <Coffe> i dont like yo use usb at all .. if there is any pins i can power feed.
[7:46] <SwK> there are not
[7:46] <Coffe> then i did dream that
[7:46] <piney> I feed my pi through the GPIO pins, but that bypasses all protection and the capacitor, so you would need a good power supply and protection
[7:47] <SwK> there are some hacks to bypass the USB plug, but then you are bypassing power regulation and such
[7:47] <Coffe> i where thinking to buy a good one to power my pi's where thinking of bulding a rig with 5-8 of them .. and then usb power would be stupid
[7:48] <piney> i saw someone powering their pi off the audio jack too, but would never try that one myself and don't recommend it
[7:48] <rikkib> I feed a RPi via a break out board and a dc-dc converter via the gpio 5v line
[7:48] <rikkib> and a 1A polyfuse
[7:49] <SwK> Coffe: you can just get some USB plugs and feed power in that way

[11:21] <linuxstb> cityLights: I don't understand your problem. Do you mean you run Gentoo on your Pi, and avahi won't install, so you want to cross-compile it?
[11:22] <mike_t> steve_rox, I think you must run autogen.sh then configure then make
[11:22] <cityLights> hi linuxstb,
[11:22] <steve_rox> error no autoreconf found
[11:23] <cityLights> I have gentoo on my Pi and want avahi. I can't emerge it so I think gcc is faulty
[11:23] <cityLights> I did emerge many other packages
[11:23] <mike_t> steve_rox, install it
[11:23] <steve_rox> err?

[12:02] <Tachyon`> you certainly can, particularly with small files
[12:02] <Bhaal> I have always bought kingston ram, its used to be the best on the market.... WHAT HAVE THEY DONE????? :)
[12:02] <Tachyon`> you can also expect the card not to randomly die and the casing to crack and come apart

[12:03] <Bhaal> Tachyon`: Ok, so the class of the SD card is about speed or reliability?
[12:03] <Tachyon`> speed, kingston jsut aren't vey good, lol
[12:03] <Tachyon`> also, the class is misleading when it comes to small files
[12:03] <Tachyon`> as it refers to large sequential file transfers
[12:04] <Bhaal> These kingstons are only class 4..
[12:04] <Bhaal> Ah ok
[12:04] <Tachyon`> yeah, but a kingston class 4 is much slower than a sandisk class 4
[12:04] <Tachyon`> particularly with anythin that uses small files
[12:04] <Bhaal> Alright, will go buy one tomorrow
[12:04] <Triffid_Hunter> someone here said class 6 are best because that's the highest class that mandates performance for random access, not just sequential access
[12:04] <Tachyon`> then they lied, lol
[12:05] <Tachyon`> none of them mandate performance for random access
[12:05] <Tachyon`> well, or were mistaken -.o
[12:05] <steve_rox> i hit another brick wall during compile i think i may take a break from it
[12:06] <Bhaal> Tachyon`: Well for the moment, the machine is limping on the broken SD card, its just collecting data from my weather station...
[12:07] <Bhaal> Hopefully I will get a fresh copy from it tomorrow before setting up a new card...
[12:07] <Bhaal> ie: if it hasn't crashed completely by then
[12:08] <ShadowJK> Fastest card for random access I've found so far is "A-data ultra high speed microsdhc".. but as all kingston and adata, it glitched already when I benchmarked it.. but has been stable in use.. go figure
[12:09] <Bhaal> I don't care about speed to be honest... I care about the damn thing not dying...
[12:09] * zproc (~zproc@laf31-6-82-241-3-109.fbx.proxad.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[12:10] <ShadowJK> in that case, sandisk class 4 or class 6
[12:10] <Triffid_Hunter> sandisk make a waterproof microsd fyi
[12:11] <Triffid_Hunter> designed for phones, but could be interesting for a weather station
[12:11] * FR^2 won't buy sandisk anymore ;)
[12:11] <Bhaal> Well I bought 2 32gb kingstons... thankfully, they weren't too expensive, but I thought I might get more data onto them... But not even close, so just going to get some 4gb cards...
[12:11] <Bhaal> $5 each, should probably get a handful of the buggers...
[12:12] <Bhaal> $5AUD
[12:12] <teff> Bhaal, wouldn't a pen drive be cheaper?
[12:13] <ShadowJK> I used to buy a bunch of 4 or 8gig cards for testing, and then buy the bigger capacity of the card that did best...but today cards from same manufacturer and same branding/classrating are like completely different cards, so the different sizes also have totally different performance and reliability..
[12:14] <ShadowJK> or in the case of kingston, they basically just slap their brand on totally random stuff so you have no clue what you're getting

[12:16] <Bhaal> teff: You saying the pen drive would be more reliable?
[12:18] <teff> hmm :/ debatable :p though I ran a mini itx on a cheap 4gb pen drive with debian and minumum tweaking for 2 years without a problem.
[12:18] <Bhaal> teff: I would save to a database on my file server, but in the event of a power outage, my file server/router/switch/wifi is likely to run out of UPS long before the rpi's are...

[12:23] <nid0> how big's the database?
[12:23] <Bhaal> erm *cough* small...
[12:24] <teff> you could always use mount a temporary partition in memory to buffer data to the database on your server
[12:24] <Bhaal> I think it was like 25mb sqlite :)
[12:24] <nid0> you could always just
[12:24] <nid0> yeah that
[12:24] <teff> ooooooh
[12:24] <nid0> mount a ram disk, store the db there, and dump it to sd every so often
[12:24] <teff> bugger that, do what nid0 said
[12:24] <nid0> then write an init script to remount the ram disk on boot and dump it back from sd to the ramdisk
[12:25] <teff> mount the tmpfs at boot, copy the database there and then dump to disk occasionally and at shutdown
[12:25] <Bhaal> Nah, it only gets written to every 5mins, surely that isn't going to trash the card?
[12:25] <mike_t> teff, try flashcache
[12:25] <nid0> no, your problem is nothing to do with general card reliability, you could be writing a small db to it constantly for decades without wearing it out
[12:26] <nid0> but storing the db on a ramdisk (rather than tmpfs or on the sd) will give a performance improvement

[12:30] <nid0> Bochi: yes, fully aware
[12:30] <Bhaal> But again, I don't really need the speed
[12:30] <Bochi> so where's the advantage of using a ramdisk?
[12:30] <nid0> tmpfs can swap out to sd
[12:30] <nid0> ramdisk will not
[12:30] <Bochi> that is true, yes

[12:30] <Bochi> well right, with older models that might be an issue, didn't think about that
[12:31] <Bochi> but with the 512 model one should be fine with tmpfs
[12:31] <teff> oooh, thanks mike_t, not seen that before
[12:31] <mike_t> :)
[12:31] <mike_t> flashcache is very interesting
[12:32] <teff> nid0, did not realise tmpfs swapped
[12:32] <Bochi> teff: change tmpfs to ramfs and you should be fine
[12:32] <Bochi> its the same basically except that ramfs can't use swap ever
[12:33] <Bochi> well, and it grows dynamically (which may be an advantage too)
[12:33] <mike_t> vm.swappiness=0 it prevents swap
[12:33] <nid0> yeah it prevents *all* swap
[12:34] <nid0> if you want swap but not for the content you're explicitly storing in ram, you have ramfs
[12:34] <mike_t> yes, but ramfs have persist size but tmpfs on demand

[12:54] <cityLights> I used this: http://www.baldy.za.net/node/732
[12:55] <linuxstb> Do you have both /usr/bin/gcc and /usr/bin/armv6j-hardfloat-linux-gnueabi-gcc ? Are they identical (or is one a symlink) ?

[12:57] <cityLights> they are identical
[12:57] <mike_t> gordonDrogon, it's aggressively
[12:58] <gordonDrogon> it's maximising real RAM
[12:58] <linuxstb> cityLights: OK, then what you've done is fine. Or you could simply cp g++ over the top of file /usr/bin/armv6j-hardfloat-linux-gnueabi-g++ and put it down to a random corruption...

[13:48] * m8 (~mor@unaffiliated/m8) has joined #raspberrypi
[13:48] <TLoFP1> i figure its a apt-get update
[13:49] <TLoFP1> apt-get upgrade, but I thought all of that information was stored on the SD card, am I wrong?
[13:49] <gordonDrogon> gazzwi86, ok just check the wiring. You might also want to make sure the board is in full-step mode then check the output voltages before connecting the motors.
[13:50] <frikinz> TLoFP1: how is your program no longer working?
[13:50] <gazzwi86> gordonDrogon: full step is just having h/f low on the board
[13:52] <mjr> Everything is indeed on the sd card. Your program should work.
[13:52] <mjr> more details is needed for more accurate guesses

[13:59] <anew> does wheezy come prepackaged with mysql ?

[14:04] <anew> anyone using xming ?
[14:05] <frikinz> explain your problem?
[14:05] <anew> well my problems just multiplied lol... i guess first with xming, how can i see the entire desktop in a resizeable window. right now it takes up my entire remote screen and the window is unresizeable
[14:14] <gordonDrogon> gazzwi86, enb - high, dis - low (all the time), wav = low, h/f = low, then pulse cki
[14:14] <gordonDrogon> bus error! that's a good one. Ho ho :)
[14:14] <gordonDrogon> it used to mean access to a non-existant peripheral...
[14:14] <frikinz> sounds like mixing entries in sources.list
[14:14] <gazzwi86> gordonDrogon: pulse cki? so just on off?
[14:14] <gazzwi86> toggle?
[14:15] <gordonDrogon> gazzwi86, yes.
[14:15] <gazzwi86> gordonDrogon: thats what I'm doing right now and it just goes backwards and forwards
[14:15] <gordonDrogon> gazzwi86, a low to high transition should step.
[14:15] <gazzwi86> so I'm wired wrong :)
[14:16] <gordonDrogon> probably...
[14:16] <gordonDrogon> do you have a multimeter or the correct colour codes for the motor wires?
[14:17] <frikinz> anew: https://sinewalker.wordpress.com/2009/02/20/xming-screen-size/ ? pass option screen?
[14:17] <gordonDrogon> the wires will be in 2 groups of 3, so isolate those first then in each 3, there will be a centre tap on the coils.

[14:20] <anew> let me try that frikinz
[14:21] <gazzwi86> gordonDrogon: it goes a - f which is confusing since the board is only a - d. is it right to hook browns up one + one -? http://www.oocities.org/es/astrohyperion/HybridStepperMotors.pdf

[14:27] <gordonDrogon> gazzwi86, yes - the brows are the centre taps, so you effectively get 5 -wires.

[16:26] <edve> Hi guys , i wanted to know if there was any way to run an x86 Windows App on a Raspberry Pi ? With of course the Wine App or any else x86 emulator ? It's a light program but still is could be awesome to run it on a RPi!

[16:27] <pappkamerad> today I received my rpi B rev.2. I flashed the debian image onto a 16GB SD and booted. Everything worked fine until I plugged in an ethernet cable. Now my keyboard doesn't work anymore. anybody an idea?
[16:27] <BCMM> edve: with Wine and with an x86 emulator, and performance will be horrible
[16:28] <BCMM> edve: there are ways to use Wine with user-mode qemu
[16:28] <BCMM> edve: (user-mode qemu is amazing, you can do stuff like running an ARM linux executable on x86 linux without visualising a whole operating system)
[16:29] <BCMM> edve: also if you have sources for the Windows application, it may be possible to build an ARM Linux version using Winelib, with minimal modification
[16:30] <BCMM> pappkamerad: sounds a bit like you have almost, but not quite, enough power :) what sort of power supply are you using?
[16:30] <edve> actually the point is that i cannot make some modification of that software :/ the source is nowhere to be found.. I would have to Un-compile it then thanks BCMM !
[16:31] <BCMM> edve: decompilation is... not simple. don't do that.

[16:43] <BCMM> anew: also most X servers for other window systems have a mode where each window is a window, as well as "desktop mode"
[16:43] <BCMM> if you want to be able to multi-task, it may suit you better
[16:43] <anew> yeah if i run like iceweasel for example... it pops up in it's own window

[16:53] <nplus> Hi, I've got this digital frame that I don't use and I'm wondering if I can use the screen from it with my Pi. The model of the screen is DGH-W090LED. I found a russion forum post (http://tinyurl.com/aknxbfc) which mentions the screen and also mentions another screen "HSD090ICW1" (http://tinyurl.com/bardyo5) - any thoughts if it could work?
[16:53] <carli2> scummos: because omxplayer does not support playing just a clipped rect of the video?
[16:53] * jdpond (~jdpond@mediawiki/jpond) Quit (Quit: Leaving.)
[16:54] <scummos> well I didn't say there's a ready-made solution for it
[16:54] <scummos> but making a video player play a rect of a video is not like impossible
[16:55] * jdpond (~jdpond@mediawiki/jpond) has joined #raspberrypi
[16:55] <carli2> scummos: the synchronization would be more a problem ;)
[16:55] <pappkamerad> BCMM, network doesn't seem to work, no new ip in network, leds not blinking
[16:55] <scummos> carli2: why
[16:55] <carli2> scummos: creating subrects can be done as a preprocessing step
[16:55] <anew> frikinz yeah i checked multiple windows
[16:55] <anew> not sure which display number i checked tho
[16:56] <anew> it's just the desktop that doesnt work
[16:56] <anew> if i open programs they all open fine and can resize them all. but when i lxsession it takes up the whole screen

[16:58] <carli2> scummos: i could do the video splitting on my own, but i'd need help for the synchronization
[16:58] <netw1z> was searching for a personal recommendation, cuz it doesnt look like the one i would like to get off that list is availaible to me in the US
[16:59] <scummos> carli2: ah. well, you could either synchroinze the start of the players
[16:59] <scummos> or synchronize periodically
[16:59] <scummos> probably the latter would be necessary to ensure synchronous operation over prolonged periods
[16:59] <carli2> scummos: the second one would be nicer
[17:00] <scummos> carli2: ok, but you'll either have to find a lib which does it already or write it yourself.
[17:00] <carli2> okay. i will read through the omxplayer sources in order to understand how it communicates with the hw

[18:24] <edsiper> IT_Sean, our open source project organization is applying to be part of the Google Summer of Code program and we are working into a project spec to create a RaspBerry Pi HTML5 interface + C webservices to handle the device plus other things that can be very useful for developers. As we are non-profit i need to ask if exists some mechanism to request a few boards for the work (if we are accepted of course). If you want I can give you more details in p
[18:24] <edsiper> rivate
[18:24] <IT_Sean> No thanks.
[18:25] <IT_Sean> And i don't want to discourage you, cause that sounds awesome, but, it is very unlikely you are going to get any samples.
[18:25] <edsiper> i know its difficult, but i have to ask first to the organization..
[18:26] <IT_Sean> Quite frankly, if The Foundation gave samples to everyone with these sorts of projects, there would be none left to sell.
[18:26] <IT_Sean> And, this is only my personal opinion, but, at $35 a board, just buy some. It supports a bloody good cause.
[18:26] <edsiper> i know, but we dont have the funds and i cannot ask a student to buy one for the work...

[18:52] <gordonDrogon> there's no point if me giving you my proper library then as it won't integrate with the pacman version )-:

[18:53] <gordonDrogon> I think it's great that the Arch people put wiringPi in though.

[18:54] <_21h_> gordonDrogon: i removed pacman's version and build ver. from git
[18:54] <scummos> usually the arch stuff is very up-to-date
[18:54] <scummos> often there's an aur package which is built from git in addition
[18:55] <scummos> not sure however how often they update it if you don't do releases
[18:55] <_21h_> gordonDrogon: same result
[18:55] <gordonDrogon> _21h_, ok. so you have wiringPi, now, in the top level wiringPi directlroy (ie. cd ; cd wiringPi), do: wget http://unicorn.drogon.net/ds1302.tar

[20:45] <Jayface> i guess otherwise whats the point
[20:45] <Jayface> ah
[20:45] <Jayface> well one thing at a time
[20:45] <IT_Sean> you will need a powered hub, you know, if you plan to have a 3G and a wifi dongle
[20:45] <Ryanteck> For my use I plan to use it in a robot. It was second hand off ebay for ??6
[20:45] <Pumtrix> The purpose of the study is to evaluate if the poor technical specifications of standard market hotspots affect the datarates given.
[20:46] <Pumtrix> i'm still working on that tag line.
[20:46] <Pumtrix> but i'm sure you get the idea.
[20:46] <Pumtrix> IT_Sean, ah. I thought as much.
[20:46] <Jayface> jah
[20:46] <IT_Sean> You'll defo need a powered hub
[20:46] <Pumtrix> I blew my last one up. Funnily enough.
[20:46] <Pumtrix> the other day.

[20:47] <Pumtrix> and it charged
[20:47] <Pumtrix> then i plugged the hub into the mains.
[20:47] <Pumtrix> 5 seconds later
[20:47] <Pumtrix> the loudest bang happened.
[20:47] <Jayface> magic smoke!
[20:47] <Pumtrix> correct.
[20:47] <IT_Sean> did you kill the pi?
[20:47] <Pumtrix> hub was smoking.
[20:47] <Pumtrix> nope.
[20:48] <Pumtrix> the pi was fine.
[20:48] <Pumtrix> I killed the hub.
[20:48] <IT_Sean> oh
[20:48] <Pumtrix> im lucky tbh.
[20:48] <Jayface> well thats a sliver lining
[20:48] <Pumtrix> I can't afford another pi.
[20:48] <Pumtrix> this final year project has cost me a fortune.
[20:48] <Pumtrix> I hope it's worth it.

[20:49] <Pumtrix> Yeah.
[20:49] <Pumtrix> Well I spoke to my lecturer, and he seems to think the hub didn't swop the current quickly enough.
[20:49] <IT_Sean> that's why.
[20:50] <Pumtrix> So the current from the pi and the current from the hub both surged.
[20:50] <IT_Sean> you should power the pi via the wall adapter OR the hub.
[20:50] <Jayface> jah
[20:50] <Pumtrix> OH really!?
[20:50] * IT_Sean facepalms
[20:50] <IT_Sean> Ja, really.
[20:51] <Pumtrix> Before you think I'm just a n00b, I have bought several of the pi books and read them :[ honest.
[20:51] <IT_Sean> It's okay... noobs are welcome here.
[20:51] <ShiftPlusOne> Aren't those books for noobs?
[20:51] <Pumtrix> yeah.
[20:51] <IT_Sean> so you ARE a noob. That said... it's okay to be a noob.
[20:52] <ShiftPlusOne> it is here anyway
[20:52] <IT_Sean> Well, yeah.
[20:52] <ShiftPlusOne> try ##c or ##linux ... D=
[20:52] <Jayface> lol
[20:52] <IT_Sean> that's not very nice
[20:52] <IT_Sean> they'd eat him alive in there
[20:53] <IT_Sean> :/
[20:53] <Pumtrix> Lol.
[20:53] <Pumtrix> I've been on IRC for about 10 years.
[20:53] <Pumtrix> I'm not a n00b at everythings.
[20:53] <Pumtrix> ;-)
[20:54] <Pumtrix> I've bought a AlaMode for Raspberry Pi, so I can connect the Aurdino Touchscreen to the Pi.

[20:54] <Pumtrix> I'm "hoping" it will then output the GUI via that not the HDMI socket.
[20:54] * Pumtrix bought another book for that, that I should start reading.
[20:54] <ShiftPlusOne> How is 'that' connected?
[20:54] <Pumtrix> So thanks again.
[20:55] <Pumtrix> that?
[20:55] <IT_Sean> that.
[20:55] <hellsing> the touchscreen
[20:55] <hellsing> usb i guess
[20:55] <Pumtrix> no.
[20:55] <IT_Sean> how then?
[20:55] <ShiftPlusOne> magic?
[20:55] <IT_Sean> probably magic.
[20:55] <Pumtrix> gpio
[20:55] <IT_Sean> You aren't going to ouput a gui via GPIO, Pumtrix... ...
[20:56] <hellsing> the displayn and the touch via gpio?!
[20:56] <ShiftPlusOne> You can read the touchscreen data through gpio, but other than that, what Sean said.
[20:56] <Pumtrix> alright alright.
[20:56] <Jayface> jah
[20:56] <Pumtrix> obviously I've done my research wrong again.
[20:56] <Pumtrix> >.<
[20:56] <Jayface> but there was some arduino talk
[20:56] <Pumtrix> Some uni student I am.
[20:56] <IT_Sean> the video is probably HDMI. Might me composite.
[20:56] <Pumtrix> lol
[20:56] <IT_Sean> But the video is def'nitly not via gpio. :p
[20:57] <Pumtrix> tbh
[20:57] <ShiftPlusOne> Do you have a link to the touchscreen?
[20:57] <hellsing> basic touchscreen use rga for display and usb for the touch
[20:57] <hellsing> (sorry for my bad english)
[20:57] <Pumtrix> No it's fine.
[20:57] <Pumtrix> So that alamode is no use to me then?
[20:57] <Jayface> no
[20:58] <Jayface> not really
[20:58] <IT_Sean> Well... how does it get video, and how does it output toruch data?

[20:58] * ShiftPlusOne is struggling with an stm32 F4 right now >=/
[20:58] <Pumtrix> GPIO
[20:58] <Pumtrix> :[
[20:58] <IT_Sean> What is via GPIO?
[20:59] <IT_Sean> it isn't both, cause there is no video via GPIO...
[20:59] <ShiftPlusOne> Pumtrix, link?
[20:59] <rikkib> http://www.zlham.geek.nz/images/news/stm32-rpi.jpg
[20:59] <ShiftPlusOne> what touchscreen is it?
[20:59] <hellsing> no i think the gpio is just the interface to an arduino shield, no?
[21:00] <Pumtrix> yes.

[21:00] <Pumtrix> correct.
[21:00] <Pumtrix> thats why i bought the admode.
[21:01] <Pumtrix> which was a waste of money apprantly.
[21:01] <Pumtrix> and my lecturer told me to buy it too
[21:01] <Pumtrix> Q_Q
[21:01] <IT_Sean> That's not going to work for the Raspi GUI
[21:01] <IT_Sean> sorry.
[21:01] <hellsing> you should have ask here before
[21:01] <hellsing> an basic 30$ touchscreen from dx can do the job
[21:02] <Pumtrix> It's fine.
[21:02] <Pumtrix> Is there anything else I can get?
[21:03] <hellsing> tell us what you want to do exactly, 4g hotspot ok, need a keyboard etc?
[21:04] <Pumtrix> I need to create a 4G hotspot, so using that mobile dongle, with a touch screen connected and a basestation to create the network.
[21:04] <Pumtrix> I thought I had it thought out, i've been reading shit for days Q_Q

[21:37] <Scriven> Saving my pennies for one of the 4.3 capacitive touch models, have lots of ideas on how to use it. ;)
[21:37] <rikkib> ShiftPlusOne, Sooner or later you will find out why using FreeRTOS is a requirement... Not so important with the F4 Discovery but for my stm32v with its screen and touch it really is mandatory to run a multi-task os.
[21:37] <anew> not 100% sure hellsing.
[21:37] <anew> i uninstalled iceweasy
[21:37] <anew> and there is no package for firefox now
[21:38] <Scriven> would like a good 4.3" touchscreen interface to go on top of my LCD too, dual-touch-screens would be cool. One as RCA-out w/ touch, other the 4d systems serial-port one.
[21:38] <hellsing> normal, it is not in the basic repository
[21:38] <anew> how would i install it ?
[21:38] <Scriven> gordonDrogon, Those 4d systems take over the serial tho yes, so other gpio-boards that use serial can't be used with them, is that correct?
[21:38] <gordonDrogon> Scriven, yes, serial. they're not framebuffer screens.
[21:39] <hellsing> reinstall iceweasel....
[21:39] <ShiftPlusOne> rikkib, my project is going to be all fairly linear and without multiple threads, so I should be able to manage without it.
[21:39] <Scriven> gordonDrogon, have you tried communicating over i2c w/ them? I know both are masters, but can't remember if one can handle that or not.
[21:39] <gordonDrogon> Scriven, the 4d displays don't have i2c
[21:40] <anew> hellsing i cant use iceweasel
[21:40] <hellsing> why? it the same as firefox
[21:41] <rikkib> ShiftPlusOne, Touch screens need fast response times otherwise you can miss a touch.
[21:41] <anew> yes but i am using perl modules, it just makes my life hell using iceweasel
[21:41] <anew> i woul dhave to modify perl modules
[21:41] <anew> so ... i need firefox
[21:41] <hellsing> and look for some .deb compiled for arm, or compile firefox for your pi
[21:41] <anew> if someone can help me
[21:41] <gordonDrogon> most touch screens can signal an interrupt back to the OS on the first touch.
[21:41] <ShiftPlusOne> rikkib, I'll just be using a character display and a few buttons for navigation.
[21:41] <anew> compile firefox for my pi ? how ?
[21:42] <hellsing> make and sudo make install i think, if it like on any linux
[21:42] <ShiftPlusOne> but yeah, I understand why what you're working on really needs an rtos.
[21:43] <Scriven> gordonDrogon, Sorry, that's incorrect according to the 4d systems website ( http://www.4dsystems.com.au/prod.php?id=155 ): "1 x I2C interface (Master)."

[21:45] <gordonDrogon> Scriven, ok, you win. However the code I wrote for the Pi for the Interface 4D developed to connect their screens to the Pi does not use I2C and can not use I2C as their systems won't use it.

[21:47] <Scriven> gordonDrogon, Wasn't about winning, sorry! I had just asked if you (since you're the only one I know with one of these in-hand) have tried to use the i2c, that's all!
[21:47] * anew (~anew@unaffiliated/anew) Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[21:47] <Scriven> Just trying to see how these can be connected together other than serial, if possible.
[21:48] <gordonDrogon> Scriven, they displays are programmed in many ways - I'm using a very high level display designed that runs under Windows that lets you design the display, then it downlaods your design into it - you then communicate with it using very high level commands over serial - you don't need i2c, spi, or anything - the display does the images, buttons, etc. for you.
[21:49] <gordonDrogon> they do have displays you can poke pixels at, but they're really getting away from that.

[21:51] <rikkib> Not being able to set the RPi to spi slave makes things more challenging for me with the stm32v. I think I will have to use serial input to get screen touches to the RPi.
[21:53] <Scriven> gordonDrogon, ok, ty.
[21:54] <rikkib> Would be in if I could use a GPIO pin to switch from master to slave... Wish people would stick to the original spi spec which lets you change modes by using the nss (slave select) line. In cases of nss contention the all devices are supposed to switch to slave mode.
[21:55] <rikkib> would be nice... to make the sentence make sense

[23:31] <mgottschlag> if so, a more simple led grid might work better
[23:31] <mgottschlag> still needs an LED driver because the pi cannot provide enough current
