[0:17] <KiltedPi> :S
[0:17] <KiltedPi> I want to have a PCB made up
[0:17] <KiltedPi> then I'm going to solder things to it!
[0:17] <KiltedPi> :D
[0:18] <KiltedPi> I have heard you can download software-
[0:18] <KiltedPi> and send copies to PCB manufacturers-
[0:18] <ParkerR> KiltedPi, Need more details than that :P
[0:18] <KiltedPi> anyone here use one of these? (preferabbly UK based)
[0:18] * slabgrha (~mbranniga@ Quit (Ping timeout: 272 seconds)
[0:18] <KiltedPi> Sure!
[0:18] <KiltedPi> You errm... Basically design a circuit board-
[0:19] <KiltedPi> like, on the software you get
[0:19] <KiltedPi> And they print it for you
[0:19] <mgottschlag> KiltedPi: for the software, I use eagle
[0:19] <KiltedPi> Thats it! Eagle
[0:19] <KiltedPi> I'll need a PCB manufacturer
[0:19] <A124> Proper software, manage to make it yourself, or find a one with good autoroute and supply schematic. Then you export to the manufactorer requested format, order and wait.
[0:19] <mgottschlag> most pcb companies accept formats which can be produced by eagle
[0:20] <KiltedPi> mgottschlagg: I'll use Eagle-
[0:20] <KiltedPi> Recommend a manufacturer?
[0:20] <mgottschlag> no idea
[0:20] <KiltedPi> A124: I've heard of people making it themselves sure-
[0:20] <KiltedPi> Ferric Oxide or whatever it is
[0:20] <KiltedPi> heh
[0:21] * KiltedPi realises Ferric oxide is 'rust'
[0:21] <KiltedPi> Ferric something.
[0:21] <KiltedPi> They make their own boards!
[0:21] <Nik05> Fer
[0:21] <KiltedPi> Ferric chloride maybe
[0:21] <KiltedPi> Thats Waaaaaaaaay too much trouble.
[0:22] <A124> Only one piece of board?
[0:22] * RiXtEr (~RiXtEr@unaffiliated/rixter) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:23] <A124> There are often options to let other people do the circuit while they are doing theirs.. So both sides save money

[0:36] <plugwash> i've used newbury and lef before but they are fairly expensive
[0:36] <plugwash> there's also pcb pool in ireland
[0:36] <KiltedPi> newbury?
[0:37] <KiltedPi> have you got a link?
[0:37] <KiltedPi> I'd rly appreciate it
[0:37] <af1> wahey bought the programming raspberrypi book today
[0:37] <KiltedPi> new territory for me, all this hardware stuff
[0:37] <KiltedPi> is it mainly python af1?
[0:37] * mgottschlag (~quassel@reactos/tester/phoenix64) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:37] <plugwash> http://www.pcbtrain.co.uk/
[0:37] <KiltedPi> I was curious about that book myself
[0:37] <KiltedPi> Ta!
[0:37] <af1> its all about getting started with python
[0:37] <af1> but im a programming novice so anything is a good start
[0:38] <KiltedPi> Pythons good for that definately.
[0:38] <KiltedPi> Its a long journey, learning to program.
[0:38] <KiltedPi> A fun one tho
[0:38] <A124> I like Ruby :D
[0:38] <KiltedPi> Itinerize.
[0:38] <KiltedPi> Thats my advice
[0:38] <KiltedPi> Itinerize everything. Set goals. Meet them
[0:38] <af1> as i always say, i just want my kids to have an understanding
[0:39] <KiltedPi> enjoy driving a ferrari in your retirement af1
[0:39] <KiltedPi> :)
[0:39] <af1> i feel i missed out at school, my generation at school just seemed to be taught how to use microsofts suite of office tools
[0:39] <KiltedPi> Same
[0:39] <plugwash> lef's website is http://www.pcb-manufacturers.co.uk/
[0:39] <KiltedPi> Do they use Eagle, plugwash?
[0:39] <KiltedPi> for the design?
[0:39] <af1> lol a porsche will do
[0:39] <KiltedPi> they are only realising the skills gap now
[0:40] <af1> i can see why
[0:40] <af1> my 4 year old takes my amiga apart, the master system all kinds
[0:41] <af1> just like i used to
[0:41] <plugwash> most PCB vendors i've used expect you to send them gerber and nc drill files
[0:41] * Primer (~daniel@www.ceregatti.org) has left #raspberrypi
[0:41] <plugwash> which any decent PCB package should be able to generate
[0:41] <ReggieUK> getting pcbs made for you is great, if you know your circuit will work
[0:41] * Mikelevel (~MoVeWoRk@60.Red-80-25-210.staticIP.rima-tde.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:41] <ReggieUK> but for prototyping and debugging, etching your own is useful
[0:42] * pksato (~PEBKAC@unaffiliated/pksato) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:42] <KiltedPi> I've a complicated design for a lightning detector
[0:42] * slabgrha (~mbranniga@ has joined #raspberrypi
[0:43] <A124> One thing is 'will work' and other is 'will fit the purpose'
[0:43] <plugwash> going further affield gold phoenix in china tend to be cheaper, especially if you want unusual stuff but you have the fun of dealing with a company in china...
[0:44] <plugwash> there is also olimex in eastern europe but their design rules can be a pain to work with and you have to be very careful if you want to avoid paying extras
[0:44] <plugwash> (haven't used olimex personally though i've considered it)
[0:46] <plugwash> afaict the big problem with doing your own boards is you can't do through hole plating
[0:46] <plugwash> and building a double sided board without through hole plating is a major PITA
[0:49] <mjr> watch out, language is (on occasion) policed rather aggressively
[0:50] * slabgrha (~mbranniga@ Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[0:50] <A124> Kidding?
[0:51] <mjr> no
[0:51] <A124> Too much in my opinion
[0:51] * slabgrha (~mbranniga@ has joined #raspberrypi
[0:54] <KiltedPi> not rly
[0:54] <KiltedPi> I'm scottish tho
[0:54] <KiltedPi> I've had to reign it in myself. Pi is for kids too remember

[1:14] <KiltedPi> l2C and SPI
[1:14] <KiltedPi> If I have something- A circuit-
[1:14] <KiltedPi> which uses them
[1:14] <KiltedPi> How do I go about interfacing them with pi?
[1:16] <A124> (need to use google translate: http://www.raspi.cz/2012/07/pouziti-i2c-sbernice-detailni-postup-hodiny-realneho-casu-pro-rpi/
[1:17] <Viper-7> KiltedPi: slave or master? 3.3V or 5V? uses *THEM*? or one of them? :P
[1:18] <KiltedPi> Well!
[1:18] * des2 (~nobody@pool-96-232-65-234.nycmny.east.verizon.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:18] <KiltedPi> I was wondering- If I buy an integrated circuit for lightning detection, (It uses l2C and SPI)-
[1:18] <KiltedPi> How I would go about hooking it up. Physically
[1:18] <KiltedPi> I can write code
[1:20] <KiltedPi> Heres a link to a datasheet for the IC : http://www1.futureelectronics.com/doc/AUSTRIAMICROSYSTEMS/AS3935.pdf
[1:22] * double-you (~Miranda@178-26-159-95-dynip.superkabel.de) Quit (Quit: ja)
[1:22] <Viper-7> got a breakout board or something for it?
[1:22] <Viper-7> hand soldering an MLPQ aint gonna be fun :P
[1:22] <Viper-7> or possible, but hey
[1:23] * Mikelevel (~MoVeWoRk@60.Red-80-25-210.staticIP.rima-tde.net) Quit (Ping timeout: 244 seconds)
[1:24] <KiltedPi> MLPQ?
[1:25] <Viper-7> the package of that chip
[1:26] <Viper-7> http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/3/32/Ic-package-MLP-28L.svg
[1:26] <Viper-7> it looks like that
[1:26] <Viper-7> no leads / pins, just surface mount pads
[1:26] * scummos (~sven@p4fdcfb6a.dip.t-dialin.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:26] <plugwash> you can probablly solder it with solder paste and either hot air or a hotplate
[1:26] <KiltedPi> I found a 'breakout board' for a lightning detector IC
[1:27] <KiltedPi> I can solder-
[1:27] <KiltedPi> The problem is understanding what they claim " The IC has support for both SPI or I2C bus making integration with your design nice and easy."
[1:27] <Viper-7> KiltedPi: you cant do this with a regular iron, the pads are on the bottom of the chip
[1:27] <KiltedPi> I don't know how to do that
[1:27] <Viper-7> KiltedPi: it means you can use either I2C or SPI
[1:28] <KiltedPi> I don't know how to use l2C or SPI :(
[1:28] <Viper-7> if you run the chip off 3.3V, which it will be happy with, its as easy as can be
[1:28] <KiltedPi> They are data protocols?
[1:29] <Viper-7> yes, they define the hardware interface required in your uC and how things are to be wired up
[1:29] <KiltedPi> roger that.
[1:29] <KiltedPi> I can't find much support on the forums for that-
[1:29] <Viper-7> i`d probably go for I2C, just because its a simpler connection
[1:29] <KiltedPi> Like, these are the GPIO pins
[1:29] <Viper-7> GPIO 0 and GPIO 1 are the I2C pins, SDA and SCL
[1:29] <KiltedPi> kk, i'll commit to l2C
[1:30] <KiltedPi> Roger that then.
[1:30] * sphenxes (~sphenxes@91-119-55-227.dynamic.xdsl-line.inode.at) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[1:30] <KiltedPi> Its as simple as hooking em up?
[1:30] <KiltedPi> Maybe a pull-up resistor
[1:30] <Viper-7> the pi has internal pull-ups on those pins
[1:30] <KiltedPi> it says
[1:30] <Viper-7> so yep, easy as can be
[1:30] <KiltedPi> Niiiiiiceeeee
[1:30] <KiltedPi> Okay-
[1:30] <KiltedPi> Pins out/in sorter
[1:30] <KiltedPi> sorted*
[1:30] <KiltedPi> Where does the data 'go'??
[1:31] <KiltedPi> It says into a register-
[1:31] <KiltedPi> So,- I guess my question is no longer an interfacing problem. More software
[1:31] * Mikelevel (~MoVeWoRk@60.Red-80-25-210.staticIP.rima-tde.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:32] <KiltedPi> I get a free lightning 'creator'
[1:32] <KiltedPi> liek an emulator- with this circuit
[1:32] <KiltedPi> So I can simulate a lightning strike, for testing purposes
[1:33] <pksato> discrete eletronics lightning detector http://www.techlib.com/electronics/lightning.html
[1:33] * Geniack (~Geniack@p54855114.dip0.t-ipconnect.de) Quit (Disconnected by services)
[1:34] <KiltedPi> Ah! Thanks pksato!
[1:34] <KiltedPi> I'm going with this one tho: https://tindie.com/shops/TAUTIC/as3935-lightning-sensor-board/
[1:34] <KiltedPi> it has l2C and SPI
[1:34] <KiltedPi> And is pretty cheap-
[1:34] <KiltedPi> I was going to solder my own
[1:34] <Viper-7> KiltedPi: edit /etc/modprobe.d/raspi-blacklist.conf, comment out the blacklist i2c-bcm2708 line by adding a # to the start
[1:34] <Viper-7> edit /etc/modules and add a line to the end of just `i2c-dev` (no quotes)
[1:35] <KiltedPi> Whats that do then Viper?
[1:35] <Viper-7> reboot and i2c is now active on your pi
[1:35] <KiltedPi> BASH for what?
[1:35] <KiltedPi> AH!
[1:35] <KiltedPi> That will help too! This is great!
[1:35] <KiltedPi> Viper for op to be honest!!!
[1:35] <Viper-7> you can then run i2cdetect to see what I2C slaves are available on the bus
[1:35] * KiltedPi copies this conversation
[1:35] <KiltedPi> I'd like to use python
[1:36] <KiltedPi> with this-
[1:36] * xiambax (~xiambax@S0106c8600093fad6.vn.shawcable.net) has left #raspberrypi
[1:36] <Viper-7> yup, all good
[1:36] <KiltedPi> So, its a case of a 'bit of reading' on the datasheet, to see what kind of format and stuff the data I'm getting is,-
[1:36] <KiltedPi> And then I can customise it in python?
[1:37] <KiltedPi> :))))
[1:37] <KiltedPi> this makes me happy
[1:37] <Viper-7> http://learn.adafruit.com/adafruits-raspberry-pi-lesson-4-gpio-setup/configuring-i2c
[1:37] <Viper-7> that guide is probably a better reference than this conversation ;)
[1:37] <Viper-7> most of those examples it links at the top are even in python :P

[1:41] <KiltedPi> Viper: question about that "sudo i2cdetect -y 1"
[1:42] <KiltedPi> I'm getting hungry for learning now
[1:42] <KiltedPi> Thats like a register, with hex values-
[1:42] <KiltedPi> And it stores data sent by l2C?
[1:44] <pksato> It is a device address.
[1:45] <KiltedPi> sorta like lsusb is for USB?
[1:45] <Matt> I appear to have started watching Wargames :)
[1:46] <pksato> no. more complicate.
[1:46] <KiltedPi> Would you like to play a game, Matt?
[1:46] <Matt> let's play global thermonuclear war
[1:46] <chod> i have a MCP23s17 on gpio any one got that far ?

[1:51] <Viper-7> KiltedPi: no, I2C is a little more managed of a protocol. its set up for up to 127 slave devices per bus, each with its own address (actually two, one for reading, one for writing)
[1:51] <Viper-7> i2cdetect displays a table of all the possible device IDs, and tells you which ones were actually found
[1:54] <tdy_> is it possible to connect multiple i2c sensors on the pi w/o an expansion board?
[1:54] <chod> yes i believe so
[1:54] * xiambax (~xiambax@S0106c8600093fad6.vn.shawcable.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:54] <SpeedEvil> yes
[1:54] <SpeedEvil> i2c is a shared bus
[1:55] <tdy_> i just don't get how the connections work.. i can just connect multiple devices to the same SDA/SCL pins?
[1:55] <SpeedEvil> you can connect more than one sensor with different addresses together
[1:55] <Matt> it's a SpeedEvil :)
[1:55] <pksato> most i2c device have few address to choose.
[1:55] <SpeedEvil> basically, yes
[1:55] <SpeedEvil> with limits due to cable length and stuff
[1:56] <chod> tdy, i have two chips on that bus
[1:56] <tdy_> did you directly solder? or are there like stacking connectors
[1:56] <SpeedEvil> once you exceed maybe a meter of cable total, things get annoying

[2:05] <chod> vertical and horizzontal split
[2:06] <chod> ctrl b o move cursor
[2:06] <chod> or 'focus'
[2:06] <b3nt0> how do you split it up
[2:06] <Twist-> b3nt0: just google up an introductory tutorial.. tmux is ridiculously powerful.
[2:06] <b3nt0> i got 1 opeded at the moment

[2:38] <Viper-7> crazedpsyc: you mean the analog jack turning on and off?
[2:39] <crazedpsyc> yes
[2:42] <b3nt0> is there a way to do something like apt-get list
[2:43] <Viper-7> thats not a power saving feature, its cost cutting.
[2:44] <crazedpsyc> oh? behaves basically the same as the power_save in snd_hda_intel, so I assumed. The question stands though, can it be disabled?
[2:45] <Viper-7> nope, the audio output is simple PWM, the noise you hear is when the drivers come off high-Z mode
[2:45] <b3nt0> another dumb question, is there a way to display a help file but only what fits on the screen?
[2:46] <crazedpsyc> ah. too bad
[2:46] <Viper-7> the only way to stop it clicking on and off would be to keep it constantly live

[2:52] <plugwash> It may also be possible to "fade on" the pwm, it would mean a slight delay in audio startup but it could reduce the click considerblly
[2:52] <b3nt0> exit
[2:53] <Viper-7> plugwash: pulsing from hi-Z to what? vss? i cant see that reducing noise, just creating a bunch :P
[2:53] * b3nt0 (~pi@wsip-24-234-131-236.lv.lv.cox.net) Quit (Quit: b3nt0)
[2:56] <plugwash> with the PWM disabled the average voltage delivered to the output capacitors is 0, with the PWM enabled the average voltage delivered to the output capacitors is 2.5V
[2:57] <Viper-7> plugwash: no, with the PWM disabled the pins are in high impedance, input mode
[2:57] <Viper-7> there is no bias applied, they`re floating
[2:57] <Viper-7> which is what makes the clear and defined *click* when you turn it on
[2:57] <Viper-7> the sudden change from whatever voltage it had floated to, back to 0V
[2:57] <plugwash> sorry with PWM enabled at 50% duty cycle the average voltage delivered to the output capacitors is 1.65V (I keep forgetting this is a 3.3V system)
[2:58] <plugwash> NO
[2:59] <plugwash> actually I misread the schematic 1.65V is wrong too but the point remains, with the PWM lines at high impedance the average voltage delivered to the output capacitors will be zero thanks to R20 and R26
[3:00] <Opinie> you guys science, don't you?
[3:00] <plugwash> while with the PWM running at 50% duty cycle (as I presume it is doing when the audio is active but there is no sound output) the voltage will be considerablly more than zero
[3:01] <Viper-7> plugwash: except for the decoupling capacitor after those, which basically puts you back to hi-Z for DC signals, and the rectifier network at the end, allowing at least 2x diodes drop of free play
[3:02] <plugwash> the "fix" is rather than immediately powering on the PWM at 50% duty cycle to start it at 0% duty cycle and slowly ramp up to 50% duty cycle (do it slow enough and you will keep most of the energy out of the human hearing range)
[3:03] <plugwash> the output capacitors will block "DC" currents but they won't block the step change at thier inputs that comes when the PWM starts up suddenly which is what causes the click
[3:03] <Viper-7> plugwash: theres nothing keeping the outputs within a volt of 0
[3:03] <plugwash> True but irrelevent
[3:03] <Viper-7> plugwash: the outputs should never be 0V, thanks to the diodes
[3:04] <plugwash> those diodes are actually another design flaw
[3:04] <Viper-7> it`ll always be at most a forward diode drop away from center
[3:04] <Viper-7> yup heh
[3:04] <plugwash> but they aren't the cause of the startup click

[3:06] <pi___> .
[3:06] <plugwash> no the diodes are going to the power rails so to forward bias them the output will have to go outside the range of approximately -0.7 to 4V
[3:06] <pi___> what did you guys say was a good irc client for cli?
[3:07] <Scriven> pi___, irssi

[3:07] <plugwash> but that is unreleated to the startup click, the startup click is caused by the sudden change in voltage at the input to the output capacitors
[3:08] <plugwash> and that is something that CAN be reduced considerablly in software

[4:51] <Scriven> Dayofswords, but it depends on which part you want to configure, there's also: sudo dpkg-reconfigure <packagename>
[4:51] <Scriven> which is a debianism.
[4:51] <Scriven> and this is presuming you're using raspian of course.
[4:52] <Dayofswords> raspi-config is probably it, and yes raspbian

[5:02] <Scriven> i'm using a Castle Creations CCBEC, set to 5.2V. Wired into a splitter to power the pi and an external USB hub.
[5:03] <Scriven> But basically all you need is a voltage regulator wired to microusb, with your battery on the other side.
[5:04] <fr0g911> nice
[5:04] <fr0g911> whats the life on that lol
[5:04] <Scriven> Depends on the battery. Can handle 6S lipo! ;)
[5:05] <fr0g911> litheon battery
[5:05] <Scriven> My current test setup is an old NiMH battery, works for long enough for now. When I get more bits working I'll plug in a lipo and run more tests.
[5:05] <Scriven> yes. lithium Ion.
[5:05] <Scriven> as opposed to the LiFe, they'll work too tho.

[5:45] <fr0g911> i was in helpdesk when that crap started
[5:45] <SixtyFold> 2000-2002*
[5:45] <SixtyFold> non-stop
[5:46] <fr0g911> i remember when our server got hit bad and i was the services admin
[5:46] <Scriven> oops!
[5:46] <Scriven> time for coffee break for a month!
[5:46] <fr0g911> i was linking all kinds of servers up
[5:46] <SixtyFold> i went back to dalnet in 2003? and was there until 2007/2008 and havent been back again
[5:46] <fr0g911> we had a tree of 30 servers
[5:46] <SixtyFold> no more friendly channels there for me
[5:46] <Scriven> Did you get to watch them cascade and fail fr0g911 ?
[5:46] <fr0g911> i was on dalnet the other day
[5:47] <fr0g911> lol Scriven yes
[5:47] <Scriven> wonder if the kids in here can appreciate the collective IRC wisdom! lol!

[5:47] <SixtyFold> hahah
[5:48] <xiambax> I was here before the big oftc split
[5:48] <xiambax> what was the network called back then?
[5:49] <fr0g911> ohh i even wrote a big ass irc script that was everywhere i think you can still good search and download it called triad-script

[6:00] <Scriven> <mr.burns>Excellent!</mr.burns>
[6:00] <timmmaaaayyy> my googlefu is failing miserably......i want to make a bootable usb drive using the debian netinstall iso i just downloaded
[6:00] <ShiftPlusOne> for the pi?
[6:01] <timmmaaaayyy> no....i'm doing it on the pi though
[6:02] <ShiftPlusOne> well for starters, you may have noticed that there is no cd drive on the pi. It only boots from sdcard (though the rootfs can be anywhere). But also, the debian netinstall isn't designed for a pi, you'll have a Bad Time taking that approach.
[6:03] <timmmaaaayyy> i'm not going to try booting the pi using this....i'm trying to create this on the pi
[6:03] <fr0g911> hmm
[6:03] <fr0g911> ohh you already have the iso
[6:03] <timmmaaaayyy> yes
[6:04] * b3nt0 (~pi@ip24-253-64-85.lv.lv.cox.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[6:04] <ShiftPlusOne> the iso just contains a kernel and an initramfs, AFAIK
[6:04] <ShiftPlusOne> but you're better off using qemu than a pi
[6:04] <timmmaaaayyy> i just tried regular ol dd.....see if it works
[6:04] <ShiftPlusOne> no, it won't work
[6:04] <fr0g911> yeah its not gonna work
[6:04] <timmmaaaayyy> why not?
[6:04] <timmmaaaayyy> don't answer that....and i dea how i can make it work?
[6:05] <ShiftPlusOne> I think you need to learn a bit about the boot proccess of the pi and also linux in general first
[6:05] <timmmaaaayyy> i did it the way i normally do it on my mac three different times, and my other laptop keeps saying it's corrupt....so i thought i'd try creating the bootable USB on the PI
[6:05] <fr0g911> yeah
[6:05] <fr0g911> the pi runs its own ver of a boot
[6:05] <timmmaaaayyy> i know
[6:06] <timmmaaaayyy> i'm using the pi to create a bootable image for a different computer!
[6:06] <fr0g911> ohhh
[6:06] <fr0g911> lol
[6:06] <timmmaaaayyy> lol
[6:06] <fr0g911> rofl
[6:06] <ShiftPlusOne> timmmaaaayyy, pay attention. You're still using the PI... you are trying to boot the iso ON THE PI.
[6:06] <timmmaaaayyy> lol......no no no. i am NOT ever trying to boot the pi from this usb stick i'm creating
[6:07] <timmmaaaayyy> the pi is not getting rebooted at all
[6:07] <fr0g911> why do you want to us the pi to make a usb boot image for a computer system
[6:07] <fr0g911> do you not have a computer you can make the jumpdrive on
[6:07] <ShiftPlusOne> timmmaaaayyy, is that other computer an ARM or x86/64?
[6:07] <timmmaaaayyy> i need to install debian on a laptop i have......i've tried three times to create it using my mac and it's corrupt each time
[6:08] <timmmaaaayyy> so i thought i'd try creating it on the pi and see if it works better than my mac
[6:08] <ShiftPlusOne> Oh... so you just want a bootable usb stick... easy enough.
[6:08] <timmmaaaayyy> lol, yes
[6:08] <tzarc> try unetbootin
[6:08] <timmmaaaayyy> headless pi......can unetbootin work via cli?
[6:08] <tzarc> no I mean on the mac
[6:08] <fr0g911> hey timmmaaaayyy
[6:08] <timmmaaaayyy> ok
[6:08] <timmmaaaayyy> yes?
[6:08] <fr0g911> your using mac
[6:09] <timmmaaaayyy> currently, yes
[6:09] <fr0g911> by change the files you download get corrupt

[6:09] <fr0g911> software
[6:09] <fr0g911> ipad software
[6:09] <fr0g911> by change are you on road runner
[6:09] <fr0g911> chance*
[6:11] <timmmaaaayyy> i download it three different times.....i'm wondering if the usb tick just took a shit
[6:11] <timmmaaaayyy> which is possible but i doubt it.....i installed debian wheezy just fine four hours ago
[6:11] <fr0g911> lol
[6:11] <fr0g911> nope
[6:11] <fr0g911> you know what it is
[6:11] <timmmaaaayyy> time warner
[6:11] <ShiftPlusOne> timmmaaaayyy, watch the language there. Nuh, I think the usb stick is fine and you're just doing something wrong there.

[6:12] <fr0g911> road runner has some problem downloading large files zips and other compressed files
[6:12] <fr0g911> my brother had the same problem
[6:12] <fr0g911> using mac
[6:12] <fr0g911> and road runner
[6:12] <fr0g911> the trick we found

[6:13] <fr0g911> zips them
[6:13] <fr0g911> and sends it back to him
[6:13] <ShiftPlusOne> you could always verify the file first... maybe even should.

[6:21] <timmmaaaayyy> it's not that big of a deal....i'll get it one way or another
[6:21] <timmmaaaayyy> but i thought there was a way to do it in linux..... cat debian.iso < /dev/sda or something like that
[6:21] <timmmaaaayyy> noone seems to know, so i guess i'm not going that route
[6:21] <ShiftPlusOne> timmmaaaayyy, you can't just write an iso to a usb drive.
[6:22] <ShiftPlusOne> iso's are cd images and cds are treated differently by the computer
[6:22] <timmmaaaayyy> ok. all these turorials are lying to me then....but i believe you becuase it's not working! lol
[6:23] <ShiftPlusOne> though according to their documentation, "Debian CD and DVD images can now be written directly a USB stick, which is a very easy way to make a bootable USB stick."
[6:23] <ShiftPlusOne> That might depend on the computer
[6:23] <fr0g911> zcat boot.img.gz > /dev/sdX
[6:23] <fr0g911> ?
[6:24] <ShiftPlusOne> timmmaaaayyy, if you want to do it manually, without using something like unetbootn, the steps are here http://www.debian.org/releases/stable/i386/ch04s03.html.en (4.3.3)

[6:35] <fr0g911> thought you were first trying to install the iso image onto the pi and run it from the pi
[6:35] <fr0g911> i was like wth
[6:35] <timmmaaaayyy> all i asked was how to make a bootable usb drive from an iso
[6:35] <timmmaaaayyy> not to be a jerk or anything, but you all starting going off on side topics as to why i wanted that and how that wouldn't wok in the pi
[6:36] <timmmaaaayyy> i definitely appreciate the help
[6:36] <ShiftPlusOne> well, that's to do with the mindest we are in... this in #raspberrypi after all.
[6:37] <timmmaaaayyy> fair enough.....i guess i could ahve just asked this in the linux channel to avoid that confusion
[6:37] <ShiftPlusOne> but fair enough. Still more information as to what you wanted to accomplish would have helped avoid that.
[6:37] <timmmaaaayyy> no waorries......we got it figured out
[6:37] <timmmaaaayyy> thanks again
[6:37] <fr0g911> glad we could help

[6:39] <A124> ShiftPlusOne: Oh thanks. I'm used on right so it would boggle my mind. gotta change it afterwards :D
[6:39] <timmmaaaayyy> go watch back to the future with fr0g911 and you'll know what i'm talking about

[6:40] <Viper-7> timmmaaaayyy: maybe you should rewatch it :P
[6:40] <timmmaaaayyy> hahahahahahah i just realized that
[6:40] <Viper-7> fr0g911: nope
[6:40] <A124> Any tips for audio managment/players?

[6:41] <fr0g911> not sure if i was just being dumb prob was
[6:42] <Viper-7> we all are sometimes :P sup?
[6:42] <A124> Umm.. any tips.. apart from aplay?
[6:42] <fr0g911> but when i first got the first pi i used hdmi so the video rca wouldnt work or vise virsa
[6:43] <ShiftPlusOne> A124, I don't like the idea of 'libraries' and all of that, so I don't know about music managment, but I find mocp to be a good player.
[6:43] <ShiftPlusOne> I think cmus might be what you're after though
[6:43] <fr0g911> does it set the default display into config file
[6:43] <Viper-7> A124: without any idea of your requirements, desired features, etc - nope
[6:43] * lenny__ (~lenny@CPE-65-30-206-147.wi.res.rr.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[6:44] <Viper-7> fr0g911: there are settings in the config file which can force composite or hdmi mode, but they`re both off by default, and raspbian wont just change the config file itself on you
[6:44] <A124> Viper-7: Anything decent. Could be only player, could be with or without interface, may have management.. blah.
[6:44] <ShiftPlusOne> A124, take your pick https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/List_of_Applications#Command-line_players
[6:45] <fr0g911> hmm maybe it was just raspbmc then
[6:45] <Viper-7> A124: still hard to pick one from the dim
[6:45] <fr0g911> it was awhile back ago
[6:45] <Viper-7> fr0g911: raspbmc is raspbian, just with some junk added on and other stuff broken
[6:46] <A124> ShiftPlusOne: Thanks
[6:46] <Viper-7> A124: mplayer? mpd? vlc? mpg123?

[6:48] <A124> Viper-7: mpd you say.. new to me. Going to check that as well :)
[6:48] <Viper-7> fr0g911: xbmc doesnt use vlc
[6:49] <Viper-7> fr0g911: seeing as i dont even have X11 installed, i cant say as ive noticed :P
[6:49] <fr0g911> i mean xbmc running perfect with videos
[6:49] <fr0g911> 1080p and all
[6:49] <Viper-7> yes, its not using vlc for playback
[6:49] <Viper-7> its using omxplayer or such
[6:49] <Viper-7> which DO support the pi`s GPU
[6:50] <fr0g911> yea
[6:50] <fr0g911> i like vlc alot though

[6:50] <fr0g911> use it for my security biz
[6:50] <fr0g911> to encode all the ipcams
[6:50] <Viper-7> A124: the MPD daemon handles both playback of tracks, and managing your library of tracks. The clients are very thin & simple, they let you update the library, search for / filter tracks, queue up a playlist, and control the playback
[6:50] <A124> Fck.. run out of space
[6:51] <fr0g911> lol
[6:51] <Viper-7> the advantages are there are clients for just about every method of interface you could think of
[6:51] <A124> Viper-7: Thank you for info.
[6:51] <Viper-7> and it`s internal filtering and output stream handling leave even Jack off in the dust
[6:51] <A124> Yeah I just got RPi running today on a 2GB SD.. so ..

[6:52] <A124> Network stream you say..

[6:57] <Viper-7> i have one of the 2nd 3.5 inch ones
[6:57] <Viper-7> the 4.3 inch is the best value for money, but no chassis :P
[6:57] <Viper-7> the two 3.5 inchers are basically identical
[6:57] <fr0g911> thats not bad at add
[6:58] <fr0g911> all*
[6:58] <Viper-7> the catch? hong kong drop shippers, usual delivery time is between 1 and 2 months
[6:58] <fr0g911> 4.3" inch
[6:58] <fr0g911> is the same as the 3.5?
[6:58] <Viper-7> its a widescreen version
[6:58] <Viper-7> but otherwise yea
[6:58] * Zhaofeng_Li is now known as Zhao|nap
[6:58] <fr0g911> yea

[6:59] <fr0g911> lol
[6:59] <Viper-7> the logic board for it
[6:59] <Viper-7> the lack of a photo of the cables is concerning for the 4.3 inch
[6:59] <A124> Ehm.. facepalm?
[6:59] <A124> It is
[6:59] <fr0g911> so how does the pi plug in

[6:59] <Viper-7> *video
[7:00] <Viper-7> look at the 3.5 inch one
[7:00] <fr0g911> aww thats why
[7:00] <fr0g911> im looking at the 4.5
[7:00] <Viper-7> it includes an audio jack too, no clue why, theres no speaker or headphone output
[7:00] <fr0g911> rofl
[7:00] <fr0g911> dumb
[7:00] <fr0g911> lol
[7:00] <fr0g911> so you have one
[7:00] <fr0g911> the screen is ok
[7:00] <Viper-7> yup
[7:01] <fr0g911> 1 - 2 months
[7:01] <fr0g911> hmmm
[7:01] <Viper-7> not the greatest pic for showing it off, but https://www.dropbox.com/s/7c6t1b1encz48f0/demo_board_2.jpg
[7:01] <Viper-7> i was playing with composite video output from the propeller there, which is why the pallette is so... blue :P
[7:01] <Viper-7> but it looks nicer than i expected
[7:01] <Viper-7> just... difficult to mount heh
[7:01] <fr0g911> yeah
[7:02] <fr0g911> i'd have to figure it out
[7:02] <fr0g911> i dont wanna mess up the new car
[7:02] <Viper-7> silastic fixes all
[7:02] <fr0g911> just got the 2013 mustang
[7:02] <Viper-7> if not, break out the 2400 watts of `make it fit`
[7:02] <Viper-7> lol, ok maybe not :P
[7:02] <fr0g911> lol
[7:02] <Viper-7> then buy the screen with a casing lol
[7:02] <fr0g911> lol
[7:03] <fr0g911> you know how much it cost for that damn car
[7:03] <fr0g911> im broke

[7:03] <A124> :O Do you have schematics? .D
[7:03] <Viper-7> its like one dollar more..
[7:03] <Viper-7> A124: for ?
[7:03] <A124> Umm.. sharing?
[7:03] <A124> The picture you posted
[7:03] <Viper-7> no, i mean what schematics
[7:04] <A124> Amp, Ethernet etc
[7:04] <Viper-7> theres about 3 different projects going on there heh
[7:04] <A124> Yeah I'm aware of that
[7:04] <Viper-7> it was destined to become version 2 of this https://www.dropbox.com/s/obdfl6oj59gz6nm/demo_board.jpg
[7:05] <A124> Ehm.. got a little out of hand I guess
[7:05] <A124> xDS
[7:05] <Viper-7> A124: i was exploring interfaces
[7:05] <A124> That v1 is insanely neat
[7:05] <Viper-7> its that breadboard
[7:05] <Viper-7> sideways rows
[7:05] <Viper-7> its awesome
[7:05] <A124> Out of hand on v2 I mean
[7:05] <fr0g911> lol
[7:06] <fr0g911> one more thing Viper remote for pi and xbmc cheap
[7:06] <fr0g911> lol
[7:07] <Viper-7> the usb sound card is directly from a microchip application note, the propeller composite video is using the same circuit as the propeller demo board (schematics available), the ethernet isnt even fully hooked up there, but again just lifted the circuit straight from the datasheet there, and the ADC/UART up the top is just an 8-bit wide parallel connection, plus a clock - the rest is tricky code on that USB UART micro
[7:08] <Viper-7> fr0g911: lirc_rpi
[7:08] <Viper-7> its in raspbian apt repos now i believe
[7:09] <Viper-7> just needs an IR reciever module, $2-$3 at your local overpriced electronics store
[7:09] <A124> Viper-1: Ah. I see. The v1 Looks interesting.. you collect all the data through USB?
[7:09] <Viper-7> can use any remote you want
[7:09] <fr0g911> like radio shack
[7:09] <Viper-7> yup
[7:09] <fr0g911> that rips me off
[7:09] <Viper-7> yup
[7:09] <Viper-7> part is worth about 30c
[7:09] <fr0g911> yea
[7:09] <fr0g911> i hate them
[7:09] <Viper-7> not worth stuffing around with an online order for tho, especially after shipping
[7:09] <Viper-7> so meh
[7:09] <fr0g911> check this out
[7:09] <fr0g911> i went in there the other day
[7:09] <Viper-7> A124: yep, USB CDC, basic serial emulator, ~10mbit throughput
[7:10] <fr0g911> and was like i need a heat sink
[7:10] <fr0g911> they said ohh yea we got that
[7:10] <Viper-7> A124: yet again, lifted straight from the microchip example library
[7:10] <fr0g911> and gave me the thermal compound
[7:10] <fr0g911> i was noooo
[7:10] <Viper-7> fr0g911: lol
[7:10] <fr0g911> the damn heat sink you sob
[7:10] <fr0g911> and they were like oh we dont have that
[7:11] <fr0g911> wtf you sell the shit for it then
[7:11] <A124> Is the v1 in schematics elsewhere?

[7:13] <Viper-7> they`ll only charge a couple of bucks shipping, even if you throw in a ton of other junk, and you`ll most likely have it in a week
[7:14] <fr0g911> i need to have the board for that right
[7:14] <Viper-7> they`re really cheap for tons of through-hole components
[7:14] <Viper-7> great for hobbyists / hackers
[7:14] <fr0g911> i only have the pi main board
[7:14] <Viper-7> fr0g911: nope, the pins on those are literally +5V, Ground, and Data
[7:14] <Viper-7> Data goes directly to a GPIO pin on the pi
[7:15] <fr0g911> awww
[7:15] <Viper-7> no need for a board if you dont want it, just get a connector for the GPIO port and build it in to place :P
[7:15] <fr0g911> thanks this should be fun
[7:15] <A124> Solder it onto GPIO *evil*
[7:15] <fr0g911> tired of using my tv romote and cell phone and ipad
[7:16] <Viper-7> yes 36.7kHz, it wont work quite as well, but will still do the job, especially in an enclosed environment like a car (38kHz is still within its filter pass range)
[7:16] <Viper-7> but yeah, the 38kHz one should have better sensitivity
[7:17] <fr0g911> pretty cool thanks again

[8:08] <timmmaaaayyy> but i can't
[8:08] <Viper-7> yeah, rrdtool
[8:09] <Zhao|nap> timmmaaaayyy, try "sudo apachectl status"
[8:10] <Viper-7> you can dump whatever you want into the rrd
[8:10] <Viper-7> declare what fields you want and how often you`ll be updating it
[8:10] <Viper-7> then define graphs in cacti to chart the data
[8:10] <Zhao|nap> Viper-7, oh yeah
[8:11] <Viper-7> as for actually updating it, cron and such works :P

[13:22] <gugaua> hwllo
[13:22] <gugaua> hello :)
[13:22] <A124> Hey
[13:23] <gugaua> i flashed my raspberry pi image to an hard drive via usb
[13:23] <gugaua> and now it boots from the hard drive
[13:23] <ryanteck> Hi
[13:23] <A124> I don't see any question or problem.
[13:23] <gugaua> and i am using the watchdog module to restart the pi when 1 minute load gets ver 21
[13:24] <ryanteck> Over 21!
[13:24] <A124> WTH?
[13:24] <gugaua> can i configure the raspberry pi??s watchdog if there is a read write error to restart automatically?
[13:24] <ryanteck> If I figured out what load is correctly that would even be a struggle for my computer
[13:25] <gugaua> today i couldnt connect to my pi because of read write error and watchdog needs to be configured to restart automatically if that happen bit how?
[13:25] <A124> Maybe you should fix the media, not the load
[13:26] <ryanteck> Possibly the automatic restart is corrupting it
[13:26] <gugaua> media is ok it happend the first time and i??m using this for 2 weeks right now
[13:26] <gugaua> do you think if it restart automatically it will corrupt data?
[13:27] <gugaua> i had to power cycle my py i didnt touch my harddisk and it worked
[13:27] <ryanteck> It depends weather it can fully shutdown cleanly
[13:27] <gugaua> if there is a read write error the whole pi is not longer working until a power cycle
[13:27] <ryanteck> I'm not fully sure what to recommend

[13:28] <mike_t> gugaua, try checks mtite for /var/log/syslog
[13:28] <ryanteck> Either way I think it may be worth putting it slightly less than 21 for the load

[13:29] <ryanteck> If correct as one website put it each core can manage 1.0 Load well
[13:29] <mike_t> or wtites test and run via test-binary
[13:29] <ryanteck> Do you have a computer with linux on (such as ubuntu) or possibility to be able to read the SMART data
[13:30] <gugaua> i could
[13:30] <gugaua> i have ubuntu
[13:30] <gugaua> and i can conncet it directly to the mb
[13:30] <ryanteck> if the disk fails tests on computer it could be why
[13:30] <gugaua> it could be also overclock
[13:30] <gugaua> to 950
[13:31] <ryanteck> Yeh overclocking has a possibility of corrupting
[13:31] <gugaua> with 1xxx overclock i cannot even start
[13:31] <gugaua> might this help?
[13:31] <gugaua> # Check if syslogd is still running by enabling the following line

[13:32] <ryanteck> Heatsinks on Pi are very overrated in my opninon
[13:33] <A124> Depends on environment
[13:33] <ryanteck> A124 I had my Pi running a web server at 1Ghz overclock, No heatsink
[13:33] <ryanteck> Ran perfect for over a week until I had the New VPS sorted
[13:33] <A124> Under heavy load and certain cases / conditions.. you would see for yourself
[13:33] <mike_t> ryanteck, what temperature?

[14:13] <Diaoul> Hi
[14:15] <Diaoul> I think the SD card is the bottleneck to my PHP script being slow. Is there a way to speed up performances by using the extra free RAM I have (~200MB) to a little fs and make PHP use it ?

[14:23] <rymate1234> if the php script accesses a database, then maybe move the database to ram
[14:24] <ryanteck> i think it took up to 30 Seconds for my Pi to get from DB and put into a .json string using PHP over 18,000 Records

[16:13] <gravypod> Hello, I am in need of some help. My raspberry pi wont start. I have had it for a few weeks and it has been working fine. I have used 3 different SD cards and have looked at the wiki page and none of the things mentioned there are the problem
[16:13] <gravypod> The red power light turns on, but thats it
[16:14] <IT_Sean> what power supply are you using? what's the rating on it?
[16:15] <gravypod> Its a standard plug to USB. 1000 ma
[16:15] <gravypod> Any information you need? I can get it and read the things off of the plug
[16:15] <IT_Sean> that should do. Are you sure you copied the OS to the SD card correctly?
[16:16] <gravypod> Yup, it has been working fine for the past month or two
[16:16] <IT_Sean> oh, it was working, and then stopped?
[16:16] <gravypod> Yup
[16:16] <IT_Sean> If you have a spare SD card, try making a new boot card... the one you have may be corrupted. It sounds like it cannot find an OS to boot.
[16:17] <bkm> the one(s) he has?
[16:17] <gravypod> I have tried 3 different cards, all of them worked untill today
[16:18] <IT_Sean> Okay... okay. What were you doing just before it stopped working?
[16:18] <gravypod> I was seeing if one of my connecters could be attached to the GPIO pins. It has a plastic top. Its just to bridge a connection to something else
[16:18] <gravypod> Want me to take a picture?

[16:20] <gravypod> Uuuh, no clue.... this cable should do that
[16:21] <gravypod> One seccond
[16:21] <ShiftPlusOne> gravypod, I have seen some people say that some connectors have some pins shorted and I think an IDE cable might be an example of that.

[16:21] * shirish (~quassel@unaffiliated/shirish) Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[16:21] <IT_Sean> I'm not familiar with that particular connector, but, make sure none of it's pins connect to any of the other pins.
[16:22] <IT_Sean> If you somehow shorted the wrong pns to one another (5v to 3.3v, or 5v to any of the data pins, for example) you may have killed it.
[16:23] <gravypod> I am gussing, and just saying this to be sure, no way to fix it right?
[16:23] <ShiftPlusOne> Assuming you haven't killed it, try blowing in the sd card connector. Might just have gotten dust in there. I had a pi that needed the card to be reinserted a few times before it would start.
[16:23] <IT_Sean> Well, __IF__ you shorted the wrong pins to one another, it's shagged.

[16:24] <bkm> ShiftPlusOne: any low level diagnostics like a telnet session that could tell if anything is happening when the board is plugged in?
[16:26] <ShiftPlusOne> bkm, serial is as low level as it gets but by the stage that's brought up the kernel would be loaded by then and the green LED would have flashed a few times. You could try custom videocore code to output something over serial to see if the bootloader is even finding the firmware.
[16:26] <gravypod> anyone know where I can buy a pi?
[16:26] <gravypod> Makershed seems to be out
[16:27] <bkm> ShiftPlusOne: thx
[16:27] <ShiftPlusOne> bkm, try this as an example. Hook up serial (make sure your adapter is 3.3v) and follow these steps https://github.com/hermanhermitage/videocoreiv/tree/master/dumpbootrom
[16:27] <ShiftPlusOne> keep in mind running that code can be a violation of some laws, so make sure it's legal in your country and all that </disclaimer>

[16:32] <bkm> ShiftPlusOne: can i ask about raspbian? what kind of formatting is required for an sd card? must the first partition be vfat32 and the second partion ext3? can there be extended partitions? i deleted the factory partitions on a new sd card, and have not seen a definitive description of how to prepare the card for raspbian, thanks
[16:33] <ShiftPlusOne> bkm, raspbian is distributed as a disk image. when you write it to disk all the partitions are written as well.
[16:33] * [SLB] is now known as [SLB]`
[16:33] <bkm> so, i could dd /dev/zero to the card and the image would `just work`?

[16:34] <ShiftPlusOne> as long as nothing on that card is mounted so that it's not in use.
[16:35] <bkm> well, it had stuff on it from the manufacturer

[17:12] <Viper-7> SixtyFold: yep, its I2C, which is a simple bus, you can just stack devices together
[17:12] <Viper-7> 127 addresses
[17:13] <Viper-7> it doesnt otherwise change the rpi gpio header
[17:13] <Viper-7> just moves it higher
[17:13] <SixtyFold> Viper-7 - also, the reason you would want a RTC is if you dont have a constant connection to network time right?
[17:14] <Viper-7> and for plenty of cases where accurate timing is important
[17:14] <SixtyFold> cool
[17:14] <plugwash> In theory you have 127 addresses on I2C but in reality most chips have a limited set of addresses they can use.
[17:14] <Viper-7> yup
[17:14] <SixtyFold> is there some site to read about the addressing and stuff like that?
[17:14] <SixtyFold> i dont know much about anything like that
[17:15] <Viper-7> since hes just considering the possibility of having more than one, i dont think he has to worry about address collisions just yet ;)
[17:15] <plugwash> so you can find it's no longer possible to get a nonconflicting set of addresses long before you reach 127 devices

[17:16] <plugwash> for details of what addresses a particular device can use you need to look at that part's datasheets

[20:05] <arnsa> Hi, could anyone tell me the exact price of RP?
[20:06] <ShiftPlusOne> depends on the distributor, since they factor in shipping differently.
[20:06] <Cymon> arnsa, what do you mean "exact price". Do you want the price plus tax for just the board or the price to get you up and running?
[20:07] <ShiftPlusOne> generally, model A is $25 + taxes and shipping and model b is $35 + taxes and shipping, IIRC
[20:08] <Cymon> You probably want a Model B.
[20:08] <arnsa> Cymon the price plus tax plus shipping etc
[20:08] <ShiftPlusOne> depends on the country and distributor
[20:09] <Cymon> Why not just go on to your distributor of choice, run through the purchase process, and cancel before final confirmation?
[20:09] <arnsa> ShiftPlusOne I find it to be 65$ in my country... isn't that a little bit too much?
[20:10] <masafumi_ohta> arnsa where you now living?
[20:10] <arnsa> masafumi_ohta Lithuania
[20:10] <ShiftPlusOne> which distributor? I am not 100% sure about this, but I don't think they're supposed to do that.
[20:10] <ShiftPlusOne> Unless you're actually ordering from a neighbouring country and you are being charged international shipping or something
[20:11] <DeliriumTremens> i'm sure some folks in here work in IT for a living...
[20:11] <DeliriumTremens> any of you have a term for the mysterious effect of a problem fixing itself just by having the IT guy look at it?
[20:11] <arnsa> Oh, I've found one for 43$ http://lt.rsdelivers.com/product/raspberry-pi/raspberry-pi-type-b/raspberry-pi-type-b/7568308.aspx

[20:14] <mjr> yes, and with less memory and less an ethernet chip (and less in energy consumption as a bonus)
[20:14] <ShiftPlusOne> model a just has one usb jack, doesn't it?
[20:14] <masafumi_ohta> arnsa Model A doesn't have Ethernet port.you might prepare any network adaptors.
