[0:00] <tdy_> well there is a warning about not doing usb -> usb connections
[0:00] <tdy_> and so i haven't tried it to confirm/deny whether it results in damage
[0:03] * CRNorris (~colin@host-78-149-220-191.as13285.net) Quit (Quit: Ragequit)
[0:05] <Twist-> Theone I'd be worried about is backpowering an arduino with another device on the second onboard usb port

[0:22] <KillmeSoftly> hi i dont know if i should ask this in here or raspbian...I am new to raspberry pi, GPIO and python...I made a simple program that blinks an LED on and off, problem is the program is just a while loop so it is infinite...how do i terminate the python program?
[0:22] <tdy_> hit ctrl-c
[0:23] <tdy_> alternatively, change the "while True:" to a finite condition
[0:23] <KillmeSoftly> thank you
[0:24] <KillmeSoftly> yes i know that i just didn't put it in
[0:24] * Firehopper yays and has a 16 more io ports :)
[0:24] * Turingi (~devon@unaffiliated/devon-hillard/x-7250961) Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[0:24] <Firehopper> got a k002 slice of pi using a MCP23017 to give me those ports :)
[0:25] <KillmeSoftly> i code in java and python is very close obviously but know basically nothing about GPIO or the raspberry pi so I am excited to get something working. thanks guys
[0:25] * KillmeSoftly (~MartialLa@c-68-42-24-91.hsd1.pa.comcast.net) Quit (Client Quit)
[0:26] <tdy_> python very close to java.. news to me
[0:26] <DDave> *loads the shotgun*
[0:26] <DDave> Well you could say, kinda
[0:27] <mgottschlag> both are programming languages
[0:27] <mgottschlag> counts as close to me :)
[0:27] * Yachtsman (~Yachtsman@173-115-221-188.pools.spcsdns.net) Quit (Quit: gogo)
[0:29] <DDave> both are OO
[0:29] <chod> Firehopper: what u going to connect ?
[0:29] <DDave> close? :D
[0:30] <Firehopper> chod, dont know
[0:30] <chod> :D
[0:30] <Firehopper> not yet anyway..
[0:30] <Firehopper> I just have to figure out how to command the i2c thingy
[0:30] <tdy_> dynamic vs static typing makes them.. not close in my book
[0:30] <tdy_> but meh
[0:31] <Firehopper> its detecting the chip at address 20
[0:31] <Firehopper> so I know that works
[0:31] <chod> nod
[0:31] * Caleb (~Caleb@archlinux/op/caleb) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:31] <chod> there was a demo to show extra gpio ports
[0:31] <tdy_> are you using smbus module?
[0:32] <chod> i have simple leds on the gpio pins
[0:32] <chod> also an extra 32bit i think io board that i have to figure like yourself i guess
[0:32] <Firehopper> http://openmicros.org/index.php/articles/94-ciseco-product-documentation/raspberry-pi/223-slice-of-pio < this is what I'm using tdy
[0:33] * znode (~znode@ has joined #raspberrypi
[0:33] <tdy_> the tutorial just stops? no next page?
[0:33] <chod> erm cant launch urls
[0:33] <chod> not from this session
[0:34] <tdy_> it's weird that they just stop there after detecting it
[0:34] <tdy_> anyway i suggest using the smbus module
[0:34] <chod> a tmux session on the pi ssh ing into another linux box for irssi
[0:34] <chod> unless some knows how to remote launch a url
[0:34] <tdy_> create a smbus.SMBus(0) object
[0:35] <tdy_> and then you can mess with the registers for 0x20
[0:36] <Firehopper> tdy, dont know how to do that :>
[0:36] <tdy_> the location of the irc session doesn't matter for the url
[0:36] <tdy_> you just need a terminal that has url hints
[0:37] * shurizzle (~shura@unaffiliated/shurizzle) Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[0:37] <chod> how do i launch it
[0:38] <chod> i guess there is a script for irssi
[0:38] <tdy_> you just click the link
[0:38] <tdy_> i don't think it has anything to do with irssi.. just configure it in your terminal emulator
[0:38] * shurizzle (~shura@unaffiliated/shurizzle) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:38] <chod> with a desktop yes
[0:38] * reverendp (~reverendp@pool-96-255-248-36.washdc.fios.verizon.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:38] <chod> this has no desktop
[0:39] <chod> desktop on the pi is dog slow
[0:39] <tdy_> what does a desktop have to do with url hints?
[0:39] <chod> how do you click a url with no mouse
[0:40] * columbo (~pi@24-205-50-178.dhcp.gldl.ca.charter.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:40] <tdy_> it's called url hints
[0:40] <tdy_> you hit a keystroke, the urls get numbered, you hit the corresponding number
[0:40] <chod> oh ok, a script?
[0:40] <tdy_> well, i dunno.. in my urxvt, it's just compiled in
[0:40] <odin_> try a finger (if no mouse), then a nose, otherwise telepathy (if no touchscreen)
[0:40] <columbo> can i use "su root" i installed some stuff into /root and i'd like to delete it
[0:41] <columbo> i tried sudo rm
[0:42] <columbo> oh you know what i remember
[0:42] <columbo> i need to change the root pw
[0:42] <columbo> heh i haven't used linux in a while
[0:42] <tdy_> Firehopper: something like this http://raspberrypi.io/2012/08/07/mma7455-accelerometer-on-raspbian/
[0:43] <tdy_> (skip the module stuff)
[0:43] <odin_> columbo, are you still root? command "id" will tell you your ID
[0:43] <columbo> i got it odin_ thanks
[0:44] <odin_> columbo, you can "cd /root" then "ls -l" then "rm -i file1 file2.txt file3.tar.gz"
[0:44] <Firehopper> found a python script for controlling it :)
[0:44] <odin_> columbo, if you are already "root" user you can use "passwd root" to set root password
[0:45] <columbo> i just did sudo passwd to change the root password so i can su root
[0:45] * egrouse (~newb@unaffiliated/egrouse) Quit (Quit: Computer has gone to sleep.)
[0:46] <columbo> its probably a bad idea to even set root password
[0:47] * thomashunter (~thomashun@208-44-138-156.dia.static.qwest.net) Quit (Quit: zZz)
[0:47] <tdy_> if "sudo rm" didn't work, something doesn't seem right anyway
[0:48] <columbo> yeah sudo rm should have worked
[0:49] <columbo> i'll just reflash the img once i've got a decent install script set up
[0:49] <Firehopper> http://nathan.chantrell.net/20120602/raspberry-pi-io-expander-board/ < tdy
[0:50] <columbo> man im just sick of perl taking hours to install modules
[0:51] <columbo> im gonna go check out #perl see if they've got some tips
[0:51] <tdy_> i hadn't heard of that expansion board

[0:59] <ahhughes> If I want to use a pi as a NAS, Im not going to get anything quicker than USB2.0 speeds am I?
[1:00] <TAFB_afk> correct. Even using an SSD I didn't get good speeds over USB 2.0

[1:05] <knoppies> ahhughes, the biggest issue with USB 2.0 is that it is only half-duplex. Although you should still be able to get about 20MB/s from it. The 10/100 Ethernet adapter will struggle to give you more than 10MB/s file transfer speeds.
[1:06] <knoppies> ahhughes, you are much better off with something like an IntelDN2800MT all-in-one or an actual NAS product.

[2:44] <jar_> so what irc client do you all use on your pi?
[2:45] <columbo> irssi
[2:45] <columbo> latest is available through apt-get
[2:45] <PhotoJim> irssi is great on the Pi, if you don't mind a shell-based client.
[2:46] <jar_> i'll have to give it a try, thanks
[2:46] <PhotoJim> I run irssi on a SheevaPlug, but use it as my primary IRC client.
[2:47] <columbo> im actually using it through putty and screen on my win8 machine
[2:48] <columbo> currently i'm installing twirssi but these perl modules are taking forever
[2:48] <PhotoJim> I'm using it through a shell on my laptop, sshed to my SheevaPlug, using tmux instead of GNU screen. but tmux does similar things.

[4:03] <Scriven> basically the adafruit demo x 6.
[4:03] <sixseven> Hi all. I'm a newbie in this channel, and a not-so-newbie on the RP forums.
[4:03] <phorce> Yeahh, I've got them all hooked up
[4:03] <phorce> but, i have 2 soldiered bread boards and am connecting 1 set
[4:04] <phorce> to the third pin in (the power from the pi to the board)
[4:04] <phorce> but don't know which GPIO pin to connect the second one up to
[4:04] <Scriven> Doesn't matter AFAIK, that's up to you.
[4:05] <Scriven> pin 3 isn't power BTW.
[4:05] <Scriven> http://elinux.org/RPi_Low-level_peripherals

[4:06] <phorce> yeah, so then I need to command the pi to do the second ground?
[4:06] <phorce> so like, gpio mode 0 0 out
[4:07] <Scriven> nope, not ground, the gpio pin.
[4:07] <NullMoogleCable> i have a tiny screen thats ntsc

[4:07] <NullMoogleCable> doesnt the pi have onboard lcd support?
[4:08] <Scriven> NullMoogleCable, theoretically, but they haven't released one officially, and I've never seen a confirmed outside module that works.
[4:08] <Scriven> phorce, then used the adafruit demo python to turn it on/off (or gpio command-line, both work).

[4:12] <Scriven> the webide isn't strictly necessary, but as it also installs the stuff locally and provides headless access to the running pi, it's not a bad thing either.
[4:12] <phorce> that's the IDE man?
[4:12] <Scriven> basically it's wiringpi python code, a ribbon cable, a resistor and an led (and your pi of course).
[4:12] <Scriven> NullMoogleCable, sorry, dunno enoughg about spi.

[4:19] <Scriven> hopefully that's not terrible-looking code. lol
[4:20] <phorce> :Scriven Nah, that's great, thanks man :) the "GPIO.setup(ledPin, GPIO.OUT )" will that give power to all of the pins on the board?

[4:22] <Scriven> phorce, nope, that line 'turns on' the given ledPin #.
[4:22] <Scriven> that's not technically correct, but I'm not sure how else to explain it as it's about the limit of my understanding too. lol
[4:22] * divine (~divine@2001:470:8247:1::42) has joined #raspberrypi
[4:22] <phorce> :Scriven So that is basically the power going from the pi to the board, correct?
[4:23] <Scriven> the power itself is controlled from this line: GPIO.output(ledPin, GPIO.HIGH )
[4:23] <ReggieUK> does it?
[4:23] <Scriven> HIGH is on, LOW is off (low's 2 lines after that)
[4:23] <ReggieUK> doesn't look like it turns a led on
[4:23] <Scriven> the GPIO.HIGH turns the LED on.
[4:24] <phorce> Yes, but, the board still needs to be powered to the pi
[4:24] <Scriven> "set gpio pin #ledPin to high state" basically.
[4:24] <Scriven> no. only 2 pins used, as I said.
[4:24] <ReggieUK> Oh whoops, sorry, my bad, I thought you mean the one iwth GPIO.OUT in it
[4:24] <Scriven> ReggieUK, nope, that's just the 'activate this pin' line.
[4:24] <ReggieUK> indeed
[4:24] <Scriven> 'prepare this pin for input' or something.
[4:24] <Scriven> as 'activate' implies power too.
[4:24] <phorce> gotcha! right brb
[4:24] <phorce> thanks man
[4:25] <Scriven> the power for the gpio pins is provided by the pi IIRC, not from the gpio's Power pins.
[4:25] <Scriven> IIRC the gpio is 3.3V, but I haven't put a meter to it so don't quote me
[4:25] * Scriven wonders if he should just get his meter and test. lol
[4:25] <Scriven> It's a deceptively simple circuit, really. I was surprised.
[4:26] <Scriven> GND(pin6) -> resistor -> LED -> GPIO18 (pin12)
[4:26] <Scriven> and that's it.
[4:26] <Scriven> no separate power. I've literally got the resistor and led hand-twisted together and shoved into the correct pins on a ribbon cable plugged into the rpi.
[4:27] * Fleck (~fleck@unaffiliated/fleck) has joined #raspberrypi

[5:35] <TAFB_afk> I'm sure they make something exactly like that current sensor, but it's a voltage sensor, will take your pack voltage into a 0 to 5v reading so you can read it with the ADC.
[5:35] <Scriven> yeah, no individual components will themselves be using 5A, (5.3V is what I have the ccbec set to tho).
[5:35] <TAFB_afk> 5.3 is pretty hot for the pi, the network and USB can be flakey over 5.2
[5:35] <Scriven> from previous discussions in here it's apparently a relatively simple circuit.
[5:35] <Scriven> Really? I'll drop it back then. 5.3 is within usb spec, that's why I picked it.
[5:36] <TAFB_afk> there's lots of stuff that's not in spec with the Pi ;)
[5:36] <Scriven> 5.2 is easy enough, just need to reboot into windows tomorrow and fix the ccbec settings.
[5:36] <Scriven> the bench setup is 5.0V anyway, so right now it's stable-as.

[5:38] <TAFB_afk> Scriven: I checked, only comes in 20a and 30a :( 20a will work, just will have less resolution.
[5:38] * Milos|RealBusy is now known as Milos|XtremelyBu
[5:39] <Scriven> AH, yeah the polyfuses. the final version of my project I'm hoping to have a 512mB version,that'll make some things simpler.
[5:39] <Triffid_Hunter> TAFB_afk, Scriven: two resistors. it's called a resistor divider
[5:39] <TAFB_afk> the 512mb has a polyfuse as well, that's what I'm running :)
[5:39] <Scriven> thought the newest ones had polyfuse removed?
[5:40] <Scriven> Triffid_Hunter, (great nick BTW), resistor-divider is the voltage-measuring circuit?
[5:40] <Triffid_Hunter> Scriven: yes. divide your battery voltage down to a range the pi can handle
[5:40] <TAFB_afk> they have the USB polyfuses removed, but still have an input polyfuse, which causes big voltage drop across the entire pi (usb included)
[5:40] * TheSeven (~quassel@rockbox/developer/TheSeven) has joined #raspberrypi
[5:40] <Scriven> ah yeah ok, I was reading about this earlier (wikipedia link already purple). I'm not quite there with doing those calculations yet tho. ;)

[5:41] <Triffid_Hunter> Scriven: heh that's easy stuff, Vout = Vin * R1 / (R1 + R2), so with a 10k and a 33k you'll get 2.93v out for 12.6v in

[5:42] <Triffid_Hunter> those ACS712 are pretty neat, I have some in a shopping cart for one of my projects. has a hall sensor internally, so the output side is completely isolated from the sensing side
[5:42] * Scriven is very new to this diy-stuff, sadly.
[5:42] <Triffid_Hunter> Scriven: ACS712 is good, plenty of similar chips
[5:43] <TAFB_afk> Triffid_Hunter: Does it matter what voltage the ACS712 is current sensing? as long as it has +5v supply is fine right?
[5:43] <Triffid_Hunter> Scriven: arduino commuinty is excellent for learning, suggest you grab some of those.. rpi is massive overkill for reading voltage and current
[5:43] <Triffid_Hunter> TAFB_afk: yep, the sensed side is completely isolated, can hook it to 415v 3-phase if you like
[5:44] <TAFB_afk> dirty :) nice to know
[5:44] <TAFB_afk> so Scriven, you can use those current sensors to measure your battery pack curren draw, as long as you connect them to your Pi's 5v out for their power supply :)
[5:44] <Scriven> Triffid_Hunter, arduino's on my list, just waiting for mr.wallet to agree.
[5:44] <Triffid_Hunter> TAFB_afk: apparently has bandwidth up to 80khz, could make a neat power meter with true RMS and power factor sensing
[5:45] <Triffid_Hunter> Scriven: <$20 from hong kong via ebay
[5:45] <Scriven> Triffid_Hunter, I also don't plan on ONLY using the pi to measure the voltage, it's just one piece I want it to do. I'm looking to build a wearable computer cell-phone. ;)
[5:45] <Scriven> want to be fully aware of the internals of the device, so it can tell me the current state of all of 'itself', if you understand.
[5:46] <Scriven> especially since I'll be using lipos and dont' want to set myself on fire. lol
[5:46] <Triffid_Hunter> Scriven: ah, may want to check out the battery management chips that laptop batteries use
[5:46] <Scriven> yeah, they'll have charge capability too, and I'm not sure I want to go that far (yet).
[5:46] <Scriven> Have a good external charger, since I run RC Trucks w/ the batteries too.
[5:46] <Triffid_Hunter> Scriven: some of those are awesome. full voltage+current monitoring, user-settable trip points, coulomb counter, temperature sensor etc etc
[5:47] <Scriven> I've come across some of the temp-sensor ones in my googling, they do look awesome yes! A bit above my head still from what I've read and not understood. lol
[5:48] <Triffid_Hunter> Scriven: https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/TYZEKttEzL-Gs6jMMpW0rNMTjNZETYmyPJy0liipFm0 may interest you, that's what I'm planning on using an ACS712 with although it looks like I'm going to be retro-fitting it for much higher current
[5:48] <Scriven> you know, I've never actually searched for 'arduino' on ebay... holy crap it's an eye-opening experience!!
[5:48] <Scriven> DIY ESC?? Fantastic!
[5:48] <Triffid_Hunter> Scriven: there are exceptions, but I've heard that generally the hong kong clones are higher quality than the genuine italian article
[5:49] <Triffid_Hunter> Scriven: that one's just for brushed motors.. would show video but I stripped the gearbox within a week of building it.. was having too much fun
[5:49] <Scriven> Triffid_Hunter, are you a member of diydrones.com by any chance? There's a group in that site talking about a diy esc as well.
[5:49] <Triffid_Hunter> nope
[5:49] <Scriven> may be worth a look, it's in their forums IIRC.
[5:49] <Triffid_Hunter> but ESC are pretty easy to make if you already have some background in power electronics

[5:53] <Triffid_Hunter> Scriven: the way they teach it in uni sucks, all complex math and no hands-on so you never know what any of it means
[5:53] <Scriven> yeah, I should probably have taken the trades version first, but frankly I didn't even think of the trades until about a year ago.
[5:53] <Triffid_Hunter> Scriven: amasci.com/ele_edu.html is great for fundamentals if you want to brush up, then sites like allaboutcircuits.com and sound.westhost.com can fill in more of the picture

[5:54] <Scriven> it's funny, my Dad's a carpenter, and I didn't even _consider_ the trades, went straight to engineering and flunked out instead.

[6:06] <Scriven> can't afford much else in terms of hardware, this is using stuff I have already and can use for multiple projects.
[6:06] <Scriven> 3rd project may be an e-bike-computer w/ the pi.
[6:06] <Scriven> so would need to be able to measure current <=30A, and voltage <=110V.
[6:07] <Scriven> I figure i'll start with the pi-phone first.

[6:17] <Scriven> and I generally start with neutral and do power last.
[6:18] <Triffid_Hunter> I've been putting XT-60 connectors everywhere, they're nice

[6:21] <Scriven> Triffid_Hunter, I did some reading, everyone around here is a Deans lover (of course), except for a few XT60 hobby-king lovers. I liked the powerpoles for a few reasons, 1: same as my ebike, 2: actually have safety rating (deans are NOT tested in any way, even real 'official' ones)

[6:24] <flufmnstr> im playing around with scripting GPIO functions and have a problem. im running this: http://pastebin.com/efx42hPy but the effect seems to be inverted. in prints "giggle" every 2 second unless i press the buttion. any ideas on whats going on?
[6:24] <Scriven> and I do like to be different sometimes. I just wired up adapters so if I'm in the field w/ the trucks and run out of batteries, I can adapt my power poles to what ever folks have aorund me.
[6:24] <Triffid_Hunter> Scriven: lot of folk at the local hackerspace here don't like deans much.. something about them coming apart too easily
[6:24] <Scriven> flufmnstr, I may be wrong, but you seem to be saying 'giggle' when the button is false, which would mean open.
[6:25] <Scriven> Triffid_Hunter, yeah, they either seem to be too loose or stupid-tight. I think it depends on if you use real deans or chinese knockoff 't' connectors too, but not sure.
[6:26] <Scriven> I wanted to go with something that actually HAS been rated by CSA or something. 30A rated PP can handle 70A before melting. ;)
[6:26] <Scriven> iirc
[6:26] <flufmnstr> ah, makes sense. print and mybutton should be on the same indentation level
[6:26] <flufmnstr> ...i think
[6:26] <Scriven> nope.
[6:26] <Scriven> because you want to print only if the button is pressed.
[6:26] <Scriven> which I'd assume is 'true' and not 'false'.
[6:26] <Scriven> but again I may be wrong.
[6:27] <Scriven> first thing I'd do is s/false/true and see what happens.
[6:27] * Alt_of_Ctrl (~Alt_of_Ct@bl4-177-189.dsl.telepac.pt) has joined #raspberrypi
[6:27] <Scriven> while the switch is open (not pressed) I'd presume the 'mybutton' is false. And your logic says 'if false say giggle', so 'if open/unpressed say giggle'
[6:28] <Scriven> so try switching false to true, and it may work for you better. hopefully.
[6:28] <Scriven> but you do want the indentations to stay the same, they look correct, because you want the 'print' to be conditional on the 'if'
[6:28] <Triffid_Hunter> Scriven: thing I like about XT-60 is their design current is 80A so they'd probably handle 120A or more in short bursts.. also, all the ones I have seem to possess very consistent mating friction, enough that it won't come apart by itself even if your battery drops out the bottom of your plane, but not so much that it's a struggle when you want to unplug them
[6:28] <Triffid_Hunter> I'm also surprised that I haven't melted any while soldering them, must be made out of proper high temp plastic
[6:29] <Scriven> yeah, they do seem to be nice. 80A is crazy BTW, holy crap. lol! There's 45 and 75A andersons if I need that much powa! ;)
[6:29] <Scriven> it's nice that they're the HK 'default', have a freshly snipped head right here in fact.
[6:30] <Scriven> Hrm... wonder if I can wire up an old pc case momentary switch to gpio, and turn on led when I press it...

[10:15] <Emmycakes> nid0: w/o any output I'm lost as to where to start
[10:15] <gordonDrogon> have you successfully powered it up before, or is this the first time?
[10:16] <nid0> if its dead on first attempt to use it, what leds do you have coming on, just the red power light?
[10:16] <Emmycakes> first time, just the red LED
[10:17] <Emmycakes> TV says the HDMI is connected but can't get any signal
[10:17] <nid0> its most likely either a power issue, or the sd card isnt written properly or not inserted fully
[10:17] <neilr> I'd suspect the SD card
[10:17] * gordonDrogon nods.
[10:17] <Emmycakes> shouldn't I get at least some sort of output?
[10:17] <nid0> no
[10:17] <Emmycakes> like "Please insert a boot disk" ?
[10:17] <nid0> if you have nothing written on the sd card, the pi doesnt boot
[10:17] <gordonDrogon> you should get a little blip of green when you first turn it on as it reads the first file from the SD.
[10:17] <neilr> I had all sorts of problems with one of my pis - the little spring at the back of the holder that tells it a card is inserted was broken.
[10:18] <gordonDrogon> (or tries to read the first file)
[10:18] <neilr> I just soldered it closed in the end
[10:18] <gordonDrogon> didn't think anything bothered to read that!

[10:19] <nid0> how exactly did you write the image to it

[10:20] <nid0> what exact command?
[10:20] <Emmycakes> sudo dd if=raspi.img of=/dev/disk3s1 bs=1m
[10:21] <nid0> remove the s1
[10:21] <nid0> and have another go

[10:28] <Macer> raspbian should have its installer base the size of the swap on the size of the sd as well heh
[10:28] <Macer> i was wondering why i was having problems and it was due to a 100MB default swap
[10:31] <Tachyon`> what, too large?
[10:32] * xCP23x (~xCP23x@ has joined #raspberrypi
[10:32] <Tachyon`> turned it off entirely on mine
[10:32] <Tachyon`> if you're putting swap on SD you're doing it wrong
[10:33] <ShiftPlusOne> default swapiness makes it so that it is only used if you're about to run out of ram, so it certainly makes sense to have it.
[10:33] <ShiftPlusOne> Not for general use, but just in case.
[10:34] <Tachyon`> ah, you do seem to be right at that, unlike my desktop machine, the pi has used 0 swap after being on for over a day, wasn't aware of that actually
[10:34] <Tachyon`> the desktop machine starts moving things to swap if you turn your back for more than a couple of seconds
[10:35] <ShiftPlusOne> you can adjust that behaviour to something more sensible on your desktop as well.
[10:35] <Tachyon`> that said, if the sd swap were ever used you'd bloody know about it, SD does not lend itself to the tiny random access swap needs
[10:36] <ShiftPlusOne> yup
[10:37] * piprogramming (~feasty@host81-149-137-40.in-addr.btopenworld.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[10:38] <Tachyon`> I remember when I used to compile a kernel on my old 486, what an all day task that was with much swapping and that was to hard disk,lol
[10:38] <Tachyon`> only had a few MB of RAM then mind (it was expensive, ??20-??30 or one model B per MiB)
[10:39] <Tachyon`> I remember back then, someone who had to have the newest of everything built a 32MB machine
[10:39] <Tachyon`> it used 8x4MB 30 pin SIMMs and the memory alone cost him 800 quid

[10:40] <Tachyon`> Why did he need so much RAM I hear you ask?
[10:40] <Tachyon`> well, he didn't
[10:41] <ShiftPlusOne> so you tied an onion to your belt, which was the style at the time?
[10:41] <Tachyon`> but thought if Wing Commander 3 was good in 8MB
[10:41] <Tachyon`> it would be 4 times as good in 32
[10:41] * Tachyon` sighs
[10:41] <Luke-Jr> ramzswap is nice sometimes.
[10:42] <gordonDrogon> different people have vastly different ideas about swap and swappiness.
[10:42] <Macer> well, if you say run fengoffice
[10:42] <Macer> it will swap
[10:42] <gordonDrogon> for example, I think that a small swap file is fine but swappiness should be high.
[10:42] <Tachyon`> onion?
[10:42] <Macer> or a webserver running multiple vhosts
[10:42] <Macer> using php and mysql
[10:42] <Macer> cant avoid it on 512MB
[10:43] <gordonDrogon> and that while a Pi is capable of running a LAMP stack, it's possible not the best platform for anything other than a quick demo...
[10:44] <Macer> just saying ;)
[10:44] <gordonDrogon> me too.
[10:44] <Macer> i thought 100 was a bit low especially when trying to run something serious
[10:45] <Macer> other than that i havent seen noticable slowdown with a 1GB swap heh
[10:45] <gordonDrogon> it might well be, but if you're running something that needs swap then it's going to be really really really slow on the Pi
[10:45] <Macer> depends on the swapiness like you said
[10:45] <Macer> i figure the sd seek time might help
[10:46] <gordonDrogon> swappiness doesn't force stuff into swap. Linux will swap when it needs to regardless of that setting.
[10:46] * mpmc|Away is now known as mpmc
[10:46] <Macer> sure
[10:46] <gordonDrogon> a higher swappiness neans that it'll free up more real ram quicker.
[10:47] <Macer> but if it frees it and pulls from the swap because it needs it
[10:47] <Macer> wouldnt the seek time still help?
[10:47] <gordonDrogon> it depends what you're doing... if you don't do that much then overall, I reckon it makes it quicker.
[10:47] <gordonDrogon> seek time? with solid state memory? it's still lower than mechanicals..
[10:48] <Macer> er....
[10:48] <Macer> i thought it was faster
[10:48] <nid0> it is
[10:48] <Macer> wasnt that the point of the ssd stuff ?
[10:48] <nid0> a lower seek time = faster
[10:48] <Macer> slower speeds but faster seek
[10:49] <Macer> although ssd has obviously gotten far faster at both
[10:49] <Tachyon`> sd/ssd has 0 seek time
[10:49] <Tachyon`> but that's not the problem
[10:49] * hyppias (hyppias@5353041A.cm-6-4a.dynamic.ziggo.nl) has joined #raspberrypi
[10:49] <Tachyon`> the problem is whole sectors having to be rewritten for tiny changes
[10:50] <Tachyon`> particularly with SD which doesn't have loads of flash chips working in parallel to mitigate taht
[10:50] <Macer> isnt it the same for mechanical drives?
[10:50] <hyppias> I have a Pi running an apache server now. I can make an .img file from the SD card. Can I run that image on a VMWARE virtual machine ?
[10:51] * DK-MODE (~DK-MODE@ Quit (Ping timeout: 246 seconds)
[10:51] <Tachyon`> well, yes, but a mechanical drive sector is 512 bytes, an SD sector is typically 128K and must be erased and rewritten
[10:51] <Macer> ouch
[10:51] <Macer> why so large?
[10:51] <Tachyon`> I don't know, it's just how flash chips are designed
[10:52] <Macer> i guess sd was not really meant to be an os drive anyways tho
[10:52] <Macer> more storage for cams etc heh
[10:52] <gordonDrogon> it's sometimes worse than that too - 4K isn't uncommon. Some disks are moving to 4K too.
[10:52] <Tachyon`> really?
[10:52] <Tachyon`> they'd hav to present 512 bytes to the OS
[10:52] <Tachyon`> so where is the advantage -.o
[10:52] <gordonDrogon> remember SD's are (were) aimed at cameras - medial players etc. write big files very seldomly, read lots...
[10:53] * hyperair (hyperair@ubuntu/member/hyperair) Quit (Ping timeout: 264 seconds)
[10:53] <Macer> im guessing the structure is a bit different for ssd?
[10:53] <Tachyon`> SSD has many NAND chips working in parallel
[10:53] <gordonDrogon> we probably should be using a different filesystem on them for linux, but it's just easy to use ext4, etc.
[10:54] <Tachyon`> typically 8, 16 or 32 on the ones I've seen
[10:54] <Macer> 2 sd slots and zfs heh
[10:54] <Tachyon`> no.
[10:54] <Tachyon`> 256 or even 512MB is not enough to run ZFS, particularly it's not enough to run ZFS and do anything useful
[10:54] <Tachyon`> add to that the bottleneck with the USB/ethernet
[10:54] <Macer> oh
[10:55] <Macer> forgot about that
[10:55] <Tachyon`> yes,I did think about using a pi as a nas
[10:55] <Tachyon`> but it's just not really suited to the task
[10:55] <nid0> hyppias: no
[10:55] <Macer> but your example assumes small sd storage space
[10:55] <Tachyon`> a single drive and samba works well enough
[10:55] <gordonDrogon> jack of all trades... master of nonw.
[10:55] <Tachyon`> but anything more than that...
[10:55] <Macer> heh
[10:56] <Macer> maybe pis will get a side sata controller some day
[10:56] <Tachyon`> I was hoping for 4 and RAID5 myself using md which doesn't have the requirements of ZFS
[10:56] <Tachyon`> but no
[10:56] * lifelike (~lifelike@ has joined #raspberrypi
[10:56] <Tachyon`> that's not doable either with any speed
[10:56] <Macer> really?
[10:56] <Tachyon`> due to the USB/ethernet using the same single real usb port
[10:56] <gordonDrogon> waaaayyy back I'd "overload" a little 486/P120 Linux with with everything under the sun - because it could take it, but the price was lack of speed... Same thing is happening with the Pi as I see it.

[11:05] <Tachyon`> speaking of that, I was pleased to see Alan Turing got an apology finally a few years ago, I'd have rather seen a pardon though
[11:06] <gordonDrogon> the early days were different - the computers themselves didn't have the resources to properly support the compilers
[11:06] <Davespice> Tachyon`: there is a campaign to get him a pardon iirc, but the government are resisting it because they think it will open the flood gates
[11:07] <Tachyon`> aye, that is unfortunate -.-
[11:07] <gordonDrogon> it's also arguably wrong to retrospectively change the law - as that's effectively what they need to do.
[11:07] <Macer> heh
[11:07] <Davespice> its fair enough to open them imo though, should be fairly easy enough for them to pardon everyone at once

[11:12] <Dyskette> Emmycakes: I know exactly what estrogen does - I took some not half an hour ago. Twice a day for a few years now ;)
[11:12] <nid0> Macer: you know he has got one right?
[11:12] <Davespice> the pilot ace computer is in there too
[11:12] <Emmycakes> Dyskette: same :)
[11:13] <Macer> nid0: they didnt take it away?
[11:13] <nid0> no
[11:13] <Macer> oh
[11:13] <Dyskette> And yeah, it can cause impotence and reduce libido pretty strongly, but chemical castration means something pretty specific, and even full-blown HRT ain't it.
[11:13] <Macer> well. my mistake
[11:14] <Davespice> the problem with a man taking estrogen is that it kills off testosterone and that is a hormone that is needed to regulate a mans brain, so once he lost it - his mind became completly muddled and he could no longer think through technical problems like he used to
[11:14] <Tachyon`> oh wow, I had no idea it had that effect -.-
[11:14] <Emmycakes> Davespice: that effect is transient
[11:14] <Davespice> and I would suggest that this is what may have contributed to him becoming suicidal
[11:14] <Emmycakes> but very annoying
[11:14] <Davespice> oh dies it go away?
[11:14] <Davespice> does*
[11:14] <Emmycakes> yes
[11:14] <Tachyon`> that and everyone knowing he was gay in that time probably didn't help
[11:15] <Dyskette> Davespice: more likely it would've been to do with the lowered libido, and suddenly body dysmorphia, and so on.
[11:15] <Davespice> right, how long do you need for that?
[11:15] * Syliss (~Home@ Quit (Quit: Syliss)
[11:15] <Dyskette> Davespice: estrogen doesn't really muddle your brain.
[11:15] <Dyskette> Otherwise, how would women think?
[11:15] <Dyskette> :P
[11:15] <Emmycakes> Davespice: 6 months-ish, maybe more
[11:15] <Emmycakes> it's just the brain having a "WTF" moment
[11:15] <Dyskette> And that;s hardly universal.
[11:15] <Davespice> Dyskette: I meant with context of being a man...
[11:15] <Macer> you know youre gifted when you swap notes with einstien
[11:15] <Macer> heh
[11:16] <Dyskette> Davespice: it doesn't matter. It's not like male and female brains are substantially different in terms of how they operate.
[11:16] * S0-2 (~sgra@unaffiliated/sgra) Quit (Quit: WeeChat 0.4.0)
[11:16] <Emmycakes> Davespice: yea, he would have recovered from the brain fog, but the depression and dysphoria would have made it hard to get motivated
[11:17] <Davespice> if you watch the documentary it explains what I was talking about; http://www.channel4.com/programmes/britains-greatest-codebreaker
[11:17] * Davespice nods
[11:17] <Emmycakes> I'm going to go back to work now :)
[11:17] * SgrA (~sgra@unaffiliated/sgra) has joined #raspberrypi
[11:17] <Dyskette> Davespice: there are a lot of misconceptions about hormone treatments and things, and that docu wasn't great for clearing any of that up, exactly.
[11:18] <Dyskette> Davespice: no doubt, if you aren't trans, getting cross-gender hormone treatments would suck, and make you miserable, but it's not because it makes your brain not function right.
[11:18] <hyppias> anyone tried to run writer (libreoffice) on a Pi-B? does that work fast enough?
[11:18] <Davespice> I'm not sure the time between when he started taking the pills and when he died actually...
[11:19] <Dyskette> Davespice: more than two years between the trial and his death
[11:19] <Emmycakes> I also don't think they were gentle with his dosage
[11:19] <Dyskette> Davespice: and he was given synthetic estrogen injections for a year
[11:20] <Dyskette> Davespice: so there'd be about a year from the end of his 'treatment' and his suicide
[11:20] <Davespice> crikey, I think it did say what his dosage was in the science museum
[11:20] <Davespice> I took a photo on my phone I think, I'll check if I still have it
[11:21] <Emmycakes> he did become an outcast though sadly :(
[11:21] <Davespice> damn, I only have pics of the pilot ace computer and some engima machines
[11:22] <Dyskette> Yeah, the social dynamics of the time were hardly wonderfully accepting of gay people.
[11:22] <Davespice> but guys, I would really reccomend a visit to the science museum if you're a fan of Turing, I spent about an hour and a half in there

[12:06] <gordonDrogon> might be better off reading the forums too.
[12:07] <gordonDrogon> sounds like it may never be finished...
[12:08] <qlex> gordonDrogon: i seem to lost the thread url - but i think this was about x Server environment - is this the same as standard X for raspbian "standard" users ?
[12:08] <gordonDrogon> just remember that with Bletchley Park, the BP+Enigmas exhibits are *separate* to TNMoC and you need to pay for each one separetly. Personally I'll not be paying to see the BP exhibits again but I will support TNMoC.

[14:00] <cityLights> hi
[14:01] <cityLights> is anyone here using btrfs on the pi?
[14:01] * LWK (~LWK@pdpc/supporter/student/lwk) has joined #raspberrypi
[14:01] <cityLights> I am using gentoo , and seek to convert from my ext3 to btrfs
[14:02] <dwatkins> What advantage does brtfs have over ext3, cityLights?
[14:02] <dwatkins> btrfs, even
[14:02] <cityLights> butter fs has snapshots
[14:03] <dwatkins> handy
[14:03] <cityLights> and data has DIF
[14:03] <cityLights> so every data you write is verified on read
[14:04] <cityLights> but I only found folks asking for it on the forum
[14:04] <dwatkins> well btrfs isn't listed in my raspbian's /proc/filesystems, so you'd probably have to compile it etc.
[14:04] <cityLights> maybe someone is using it here
[14:04] <dwatkins> I'm on raspbian, though
[14:04] <cityLights> I saw it was added to arc

[18:40] <werdna> Hi! I'm getting some heavily distorted sound through Mopidy on my soft-float Raspi, even on a USB sound card (CM109 chipset). I'm wondering if anybody has any hints for dealing with poor sound quality in general (which is independent of whether I'm using a USB sound card or the onboard adapter). One thing that I've noticed, by the way, is that the CPU usage of the music playing app is >80%
[18:41] <linuxstb> werdna: Why are you using soft-float? And in what way is the sound quality poor?
[18:42] <werdna> I'm using soft-float because I've heard that libspotify only supports soft-float.
[18:42] * Cymerc (~Clint@ip65-47-117-18.z117-47-65.customer.algx.net) Quit (Ping timeout: 246 seconds)
[18:43] <werdna> The sound is distorted, it's almost as if somebody is running a chainsaw in the background whenever I press play.
[18:43] <gordonDrogon> Datalink, no idea really - i've never used lirc stuff...
[18:43] <werdna> and many of the frequencies are missing.
[18:43] <Datalink> dang, just wired up an IR LED and need to test it otu
[18:43] <Datalink> out*
[18:44] <IT_Sean> Datalink: and this is a problem?
[18:44] <IT_Sean> point a cheap webcam at it, or use the camera on your phone. Many of the cheaper cameras do not have IR filters... you should see it light up that way.
[18:45] <PReDiToR> Your phone will probably work for that too Datalink

[18:50] <werdna> Another question: If I've installed the soft-float version of Raspbian, am I able to change it to hard-float without reimaging my SD card?
[18:51] <IT_Sean> ooh
[18:51] <PReDiToR> Pretty much every program and utility is compiled differently between the two. But that would make an ACE project.
[18:51] <Datalink> ugh, lirc through gpio requires compiling >.<
[18:51] <IT_Sean> so, basically... no.
[18:52] <Datalink> kernel compiling
[18:52] <PReDiToR> Datalink: X-compile it on a nice fast machine. It shouldn't take more than 20 minutes.
[18:52] <Datalink> PReDiToR, plus environment setup...
[18:53] <PReDiToR> Yeah, but once that's done you're sorted for any future compilation you might need.

[23:05] <gordonDrogon> the kingston c4's get 16MB/sec reads.
[23:06] <sixseven> Crenn-NAS used to in early days, not sure as changed sd, router, and cable for other reasons, and havent seen the problem since
[23:06] <Crenn-NAS> gordonDrogon: Cable was definately plugged in, which is the strange thing
[23:06] <gordonDrogon> Crenn-NAS, not poking about with the gpio are you?
[23:06] <ShadowJK> Sandisk ultra C4 from 2009 is faster than 2009 class 10 kingston. 2013 Sandisk class 4 is about 2-4 times slower for running an operating system than back in 2009
[23:06] <Crenn-NAS> Nope
[23:06] <Crenn-NAS> Not on this one
[23:06] <gordonDrogon> I think it just goes to show that SD card makers make it up as they go along ;-)
[23:08] <ShadowJK> Well, class rating is *minimum* speed, except for class 10 (iirc). Sandisk were just very conservative in 2009 and only guaranteed 4M, when card achieved 10-12M most of the time
[23:10] <ShadowJK> Also, class rating only applies to sequential write speed, which is only relevant for digital cameras, and there only applies for a single photo / video. Card will potentially be slower if taking multiple photos after eachother
