[0:13] <marl_scot1> hi folks, im using latest raspbian wheezy and i cant find the 'hcitool' for bluetooth scans, anyone able to tell me if i need extra sources or something?
[0:14] <godzirra> Anyone have experience with GPIO, python and uinput? For some reason my python script stopped detecting keypresses, and I can't figure out why
[0:14] * metachris (~metachris@chello212186208121.11.vie.surfer.at) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[0:14] <marl_scot1> godzirra, take it you have double checked your permissions to the gpio registers etc?
[0:15] <godzirra> marl_scot1: No? How do I do that? It was working and it just stopped, so I stripped my board down to a single button, but its still not recognizing.

[0:15] <godzirra> marl_scot1: I'm using the script in here: http://blog.thestateofme.com/2012/08/10/raspberry-pi-gpio-joystick/ though I've commented everything out except pin7
[0:15] * johnthebear (~Johnthebe@c-24-11-165-154.hsd1.mi.comcast.net) Quit (Quit: Computer has gone to sleep.)
[0:15] <marl_scot1> what user are you running your script under?
[0:16] <godzirra> root.
[0:16] <godzirra> Well, pi, with sudo
[0:16] <marl_scot1> ok, not a permission problem then :(
[0:16] <godzirra> I didn't think so...
[0:16] <godzirra> I had the whole board working and everything just stopped working.
[0:16] <godzirra> and I'm not clear what happened.
[0:16] <marl_scot1> do you have a test meater that you can confirm the voltage at the gpio pin on the pi when you press/release the button?
[0:17] <godzirra> How do I test the voltage at the pin while its connected?
[0:17] * BlueDreams (~matt@24-205-95-34.dhcp.psdn.ca.charter.com) Quit (Quit: BlueDreams)
[0:17] * chupacabra (~michael@cpe-70-112-1-160.austin.res.rr.com) Quit (Ping timeout: 255 seconds)
[0:17] <marl_scot1> one thing i do is turn the pi over, and hold one meter probe to the pin i want to check and hold the other probe to ground (like the shield around the micro usb power connector)
[0:18] * Jevermeister (~Jevermeis@unaffiliated/jever) Quit (Quit: /)
[0:19] <marl_scot1> just be REALLY carefull you dont slip with the probe and trash your pi?
[0:19] <SirStan> nothing worse than spoiled pi
[0:20] <A124> Spoiled life?
[0:20] <godzirra> nope. No voltage it seems. assuming I'm using my meter right. I'm fairly bad at electronics =p
[0:20] * iunk (~iunk@ has joined #raspberrypi
[0:20] <marl_scot1> is that when the button is up and down?
[0:21] <godzirra> Correct.
[0:21] <marl_scot1> that would indicate that something is wrong with your circit rather than your pi/program
[0:21] * [SkG] (~sconde@unaffiliated/skg/x-897332) Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[0:22] <godzirra> There's not much of a circuit..
[0:22] <godzirra> Its a single switch wired to ground and another pin
[0:22] <marl_scot1> next thing to check is if you can find a positive voltage anyware on the circuit, use the ground on the pi as your ground point and test things like your +v supply as your cable connects to the circuit
[0:22] <godzirra> I know I said I'm bad at electronics, but even I can't screw that up. ;)
[0:22] <marl_scot1> ah, does it not have to be between +v and gpio pin?
[0:23] <godzirra> It wasn't when it was working before? I just had it wired to pin 7 for the positive side of the switch and ground for the ground terminal.
[0:23] <marl_scot1> iirc, the only time you can get a result from shorting to ground (other side of switch attached to ground) is if you have a pull up resistor on the gpio pin
[0:23] <godzirra> And the python library should be checknig for button pushes on pin 7.
[0:23] * home (~home@unaffiliated/home) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:24] * iunk (~iunk@ Quit (Quit: Textual IRC Client: www.textualapp.com)
[0:24] <godzirra> Weird. This is the same way I had it setup and working before.
[0:25] <marl_scot1> try attaching to pin 5, and checking for gpio 1 or 3
[0:25] <godzirra> I'm not sure what you mean by check for gpio 1 or 3?
[0:25] <godzirra> The library I'm using just setsup a pin as an input pin and watches for input.
[0:26] <marl_scot1> what command do you use to check the gpio state?
[0:26] <marl_scot1> ok, do you know what the library calls pin 7?
[0:26] <godzirra> GPIO.input(pinNumber)
[0:27] <marl_scot1> one problem with the pi's have several number systems for gpio pins
[0:27] <marl_scot1> ok and the switch is attched to phisical pin number 7 on the board?
[0:27] <godzirra> Yeah, I've noticed that. :)
[0:27] <godzirra> Correct.
[0:27] <godzirra> And ground to pin 8 on the board.
[0:27] <godzirra> Don't ask me why pin 8... but that's what it said to use for uinput, and it worked before.
[0:27] <marl_scot1> ok, do you know if your pi is a 'rev1' or a 'rev2' ?
[0:27] <godzirra> I'm using this script to test: http://blog.thestateofme.com/2012/08/10/raspberry-pi-gpio-joystick/
[0:27] <godzirra> rev2
[0:28] <marl_scot1> try pin6 or pin 9 for ground
[0:28] <godzirra> I tried 6. Let me try again.
[0:28] <marl_scot1> pin 8 is a gpio (gpio 14)
[0:28] <godzirra> Do I need to power down the pi, or just switch the wires around?
[0:28] <godzirra> Yeah, I know.
[0:28] <godzirra> But it definitely was working before.
[0:29] <marl_scot1> depends on how confident you are at not mis placing the wire or shorting something!
[0:29] <godzirra> touche.
[0:29] <godzirra> pin 6, no love.
[0:30] <marl_scot1> checking with the meter?
[0:30] <godzirra> Oh. No, let me try that.
[0:30] <marl_scot1> it should be 0 for both settings
[0:30] <godzirra> For the meter, I should be on AC/mA, right?
[0:30] <marl_scot1> how many switches are you trying to wire up (noramlly)
[0:31] * pkrnj (~pkrnj@bas1-montreal47-1242477915.dsl.bell.ca) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:31] <godzirra> 10
[0:31] <marl_scot1> nope, Volts (upto 20v)
[0:31] <godzirra> ac?
[0:31] <marl_scot1> dc
[0:32] <marl_scot1> ah, is each switch connected to its own gpio pin, or are they connected together? (like the one pin from the first 4 switches is connected to pin 8)
[0:32] <godzirra> AC seems to measure as soon as I hit teh button.
[0:32] <godzirra> DC seems to ignore it.
[0:32] <godzirra> Each switch is connected to its own gpio pin
[0:32] * home (~home@unaffiliated/home) Quit (Ping timeout: 248 seconds)
[0:32] <godzirra> Ground is connected to pin 8 on all switches
[0:32] <godzirra> then the positive terminal has its own pin
[0:33] <marl_scot1> ok, try moving your cable from pin6 to pin 1
[0:33] <godzirra> I was on 9
[0:33] <godzirra> let me try 1
[0:34] <marl_scot1> pin 1 is 3.3v, so when you press the button, you should get 3.3v at pin 7
[0:34] <marl_scot1> which should give you a value of '1' when reading the pin state
[0:34] <godzirra> ah
[0:34] <godzirra> I've got it wired for continous on
[0:34] <marl_scot1> ?
[0:35] * Delboy (~openwrt@141-136-250-92.dsl.iskon.hr) Quit (Ping timeout: 264 seconds)
[0:35] <godzirra> I get 3.3v between pin 1 and 7
[0:35] <godzirra> untl I push the button
[0:35] <marl_scot1> well in that case, pressing the button should give you 0 for the output
[0:35] <godzirra> It did.
[0:35] <marl_scot1> ok, try pressing the button and see if pin 7 drops to 0
[0:35] <marl_scot1> so that worked?
[0:36] <godzirra> I had ground on pin 1, positive meter on pin 7
[0:36] <godzirra> it drops to 0 when I hit the button, yes.
[0:36] * zoktar (~zoktar@unaffiliated/zoktar) Quit (Ping timeout: 245 seconds)
[0:36] <marl_scot1> ok, if you want to go back to using pin 8, then you can
[0:36] <godzirra> So the button is working, and I'm getting voltage, but my software isn't seeing the keypress then.
[0:36] <godzirra> ?
[0:37] <marl_scot1> all you need to do is set pin 8 as an output, and turn it on (send '1' to the pin)
[0:37] <godzirra> Hrm.
[0:37] <godzirra> I wonder if uinput does that automatically?
[0:37] <godzirra> Because I didn't set anything for pin 8 before.
[0:37] <marl_scot1> ok,. give me a sec to read the link you gave me
[0:38] * ChrisAnn (uid6551@gateway/web/irccloud.com/x-wblhwggphaynnqca) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:38] <godzirra> okay
[0:38] <godzirra> so I haven't done anything to setup pin8, and I get the same reaction on pin 8 as pin 1
[0:38] <godzirra> i.e. when I push the button, voltage drops to 0.
[0:38] * scummos^ (~sven@p4FDCD23C.dip.t-dialin.net) Quit (Ping timeout: 248 seconds)
[0:40] * FlipFlop (flipflop@unaffiliated/fl1pfl0p) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:40] <marl_scot1> how are you connecting pin 8?
[0:40] * bertrik_ (~quassel@rockbox/developer/bertrik) Quit (Quit: bedtijd)
[0:40] <godzirra> I'm wiring it directly to the switch
[0:41] <godzirra> same with pin 7.
[0:41] <marl_scot1> ok, so its pin 8 -> switch -> pin 7 ?
[0:41] <godzirra> yup.
[0:41] * Delboy (~openwrt@141-136-240-94.dsl.iskon.hr) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:41] <marl_scot1> any pull up resistors?
[0:41] <godzirra> Nope.
[0:43] <marl_scot1> your circit, are you using one you found on line, or is it made from scratch?
[0:43] <godzirra> There's really no circuit. Its just a bunch of switches wired directly to ground and to a gpio pin.
[0:44] <marl_scot1> ok, looking at that link you posted for the script, it would appear that the script was written to use the joystick as its switches
[0:44] <godzirra> Right, that's what I'm doing.
[0:44] <godzirra> But if you look at the internals of the joystick, its just 4 switches. One for each direction.
[0:44] <godzirra> I can take a picture to show you, but its quite literally just 4 switches that pushing on the joystick triggers.
[0:45] <marl_scot1> ok, but the circuit on the page has pull up resistors
[0:45] * DexterLB (~dex@77-85-15-118.btc-net.bg) Quit (Ping timeout: 252 seconds)
[0:46] <godzirra> Okay. I can try finding some pull up resistors, but it was working before and I wasn't using them.
[0:46] <godzirra> What is the difference between a pull up resistor and a normal resistor?
[0:46] <marl_scot1> i am going back WAY WAY WAY long time, but from what i remember, the priginal worked, by using pull resistors within the machine, and pressing a button, pulled the line to ground (0v)
[0:47] * hyperair (~hyperair@ubuntu/member/hyperair) Quit (Ping timeout: 255 seconds)
[0:47] <marl_scot1> no differance, 'pull up' resistors, simple connect between the pin and +v and keep the pin at a high value, untill it is shorted, they should always be around the 10k mark (i thinkn!)
[0:48] <godzirra> Okay.
[0:48] <godzirra> Let me find a 10k resistor real quick and try it.
[0:48] <marl_scot1> 'pull down' resistors do the same thing but hold the pin to 0v untill +v is applied to the pin.
[0:48] <godzirra> But its the same piece of hardware, just doing idfferent functions?
[0:49] <marl_scot1> you use pull up/down resitors to avoid having the lines 'float' (at which point they can pick up a lot of interferance from other local electric supplies)
[0:49] <piney> godzirra, 'pull up' and 'pull down' are ways to use a resistor, not types of resistors
[0:50] <marl_scot1> if you are using the script that they provided, it would be easier to use the same circuit as well, it may be that in the past, you had your wires close to something that was generating your +v through induction
[0:50] * pecorade (~pecorade@host132-94-dynamic.247-95-r.retail.telecomitalia.it) Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[0:50] <godzirra> Got it
[0:50] <marl_scot1> tahnks piney i didnt make that very clear did i? lol
[0:51] <marl_scot1> piney, would you agrea with what i have said so far?
[0:51] <godzirra> No, it made sense.
[0:51] <godzirra> But adding a 10k resistor between the switch and pin 7 didn't seem to do anything. :/
[0:51] * ForSpareParts (~ForSpareP@dhcp147.sewn2.iit.edu) Quit (Quit: ForSpareParts)
[0:51] <marl_scot1> godzirra, nope, the way it should be connected is :
[0:51] <marl_scot1> 0v to common on switches
[0:51] <piney> most of it, there are strong and weak pull up / down resistors. 10k being good for this application
[0:52] <marl_scot1> then on each switch connected to a gpio, 10k resistor between it and +v
[0:52] <godzirra> Okay. I'm just using a single button right now to test.
[0:52] <marl_scot1> so your circuit is :
[0:52] <godzirra> So I've got pin 8 (common) -> switch -> resistor -> pin 7
[0:53] <marl_scot1> 0v -> switch -> (10k resistor -> +v) and -> pin 7
[0:53] <piney> one more leg needed godzirra
[0:53] <godzirra> I don't have a +v...
[0:53] <godzirra> I never did. And I had this working before?
[0:53] * Gr33n3gg (~snacsnoc@S010600016c2483c8.ek.shawcable.net) Quit (Ping timeout: 248 seconds)
[0:53] <godzirra> Before it was pin8->switch->pin 7
[0:53] <marl_scot1> godzirra, pin 1 is +v (JUST BE CAREFULL NOT TO USE PIN 2!!!!!!!!!!!)
[0:54] <godzirra> No, I swear... I really had this working before and there was nothing at all connected to pin 1.
[0:54] * raspy_freenode (~raspy_fre@2001:558:6017:0:3dd1:e455:7d53:3150) Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[0:54] <piney> there are built in pull up resistors that can be turned on / off with code.
[0:54] <piney> gotta run though, bbl
[0:54] * zoktar (~zoktar@unaffiliated/zoktar) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:54] <godzirra> Thanks piney
[0:54] <marl_scot1> also, i just remembered, the joystick worked with NO switches not NC (NO - Normal open, NC - Normal closed)
[0:54] * raspy_freenode (~raspy_fre@2001:558:6017:0:3dd1:e455:7d53:3150) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:54] <godzirra> It worked either way.
[0:54] <marl_scot1> piney, do all the gpio pins have pull ups?
[0:55] <godzirra> no, they don't.
[0:55] <godzirra> At least not according to elinux.
[0:56] <godzirra> It's saying that gpio 2, 3 does. But that's all its saying.
[0:56] <godzirra> But either way, I wasn't using pull up resistors or pin 1 before.. no clue what the heck I did to break it.
[0:56] <marl_scot1> thats what i was reading, but wanted to double check :)
[0:56] <marl_scot1> lol, it sounds like you were just lucky with interferance/inductance
[0:57] <godzirra> For 5 switches though?
[0:57] <marl_scot1> they way the joystick works on that page, is all switches have 0v in common, and then each one has a pull up resistor to +v
[0:57] <marl_scot1> and also each switch was connected to a gpio
[0:57] <godzirra> Yeah.. mine was totally not wired that way at all lol
[0:57] <godzirra> I guess I need the wire to +v.
[0:58] <marl_scot1> lol, it wouldnt be the first time i have run a circuit that ran fine, untill it was moved and then stopped totally!
[0:58] <godzirra> Heh,
[0:58] <godzirra> Yeah. Very true.
[0:58] <marl_scot1> give me a sec and i will post a quick pic for you
[0:58] <godzirra> So does EACH switch need a pullup resistor?
[0:58] <godzirra> No, your explanation makes sense...
[0:58] * sphenxes (~sphenxes@91-119-55-227.dynamic.xdsl-line.inode.at) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[0:58] <godzirra> The positive terminal from the switch splits to a gpio pin one way, and a pull up resistor that goes to pin 1 (or 3.3v) on the other way?

[1:00] * Altimeter (~Altimeter@2607:5300:60:b49::1) Quit (Ping timeout: 246 seconds)
[1:01] <marl_scot1> also you need to use the 'normal open' pins on the switches
[1:01] * Altimeter (~Altimeter@2607:5300:60:b49::1) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:01] <godzirra> Okay.
[1:02] <marl_scot1> im jsut waiting for this image to uplaod
[1:02] <godzirra> taking a picture of mine too
[1:02] <godzirra> to show you what I'm trying
[1:03] <marl_scot1> http://i1198.photobucket.com/albums/aa445/marl_scot/IMG_20130310_235935_zpsf8474c35.jpg
[1:03] <godzirra> okay
[1:04] <godzirra> thats how I think I have it seup
[1:04] <godzirra> setup
[1:04] <godzirra> but its still not working. Waiting on my picture ot upload
[1:05] * Simon- (simon@proxima.lp0.eu) Quit (Ping timeout: 246 seconds)
[1:05] <marl_scot1> with that wiring, you should see +v on pin 7 untill you press the switch, then you will see 0v
[1:05] <godzirra> Let me test with a meter.
[1:06] <marl_scot1> which is what that script is expecting (i think from the looks of the bread board)
[1:07] * Simon- (simon@proxima.lp0.eu) has joined #raspberrypi

[1:07] * SgrA (~sgra@unaffiliated/sgra) Quit (Ping timeout: 260 seconds)
[1:07] <godzirra> I'm seeing 0.16v until I hit the button
[1:08] <godzirra> http://imgur.com/ErxRGhz
[1:08] <marl_scot1> and then you see what?
[1:08] <godzirra> http://i.imgur.com/ErxRGhz.jpg
[1:08] <godzirra> Then I see 0v
[1:08] <godzirra> Sorry, its not a great picture.
[1:09] <marl_scot1> ok, take out the pin 8 cable
[1:09] <godzirra> okay? Completely?
[1:10] * SubOracle (quassel@ln-ldn-02.data-mesh.net) Quit (Ping timeout: 246 seconds)
[1:10] <marl_scot1> yup
[1:10] <marl_scot1> give me 2 secondas
[1:10] <godzirra> sure
[1:10] <godzirra> Thanks for your help, btw.
[1:10] <godzirra> Although I'm going to have to leave in 10 minutes to go to my pop's birthday dinner.
[1:11] <marl_scot1> ok
[1:12] <marl_scot1> so now you have a cable from pin 1 to the +v rail on the bread board?
[1:12] <godzirra> I do
[1:12] <godzirra> But I do not have a cable from the Pi to the negative rail.
[1:12] <marl_scot1> ok, and a 10k resistor from the +v rail at the bottom of the breadboard?
[1:12] <godzirra> Correct.
[1:13] <marl_scot1> ok, at the other end of the resistor, you have a wire going to the NO pin of the jotstick button
[1:13] <marl_scot1> and a wire going to pin 7
[1:13] <godzirra> Yes
[1:13] * MichaelC is now known as MichaelC|Sleep
[1:13] <marl_scot1> (i take it the joystick button has 3 terminals?)
[1:14] <godzirra> Yup
[1:14] <godzirra> I tested continuity to verify I was on the NO
[1:14] <marl_scot1> ok, from the common side of your jotsick, take its wire to the 0v rail on the breadboard
[1:14] <godzirra> Normal open should not have continuity until its pushed, right?
[1:14] <godzirra> Let me double check I've got that right
[1:14] <marl_scot1> correct
[1:15] <marl_scot1> (remember and test continutity when the button is discontected!)
[1:15] * Gr33n3gg (~snacsnoc@S010600016c2483c8.ek.shawcable.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:15] <godzirra> okay, I've got that working.
[1:15] <godzirra> From the common side to - instead of pin 8. One sec
[1:15] <godzirra> Oh
[1:15] <godzirra> its already there.
[1:15] <marl_scot1> ok and a cable from the 0v rail on the breadboard to pin 6
[1:15] <godzirra> Okay.
[1:16] <godzirra> done
[1:16] <marl_scot1> so when the button is not pushed you should see 3.3v on pin 7
[1:16] <godzirra> let me double check
[1:16] <marl_scot1> and when the button is pressed you should see 0v on pin 7
[1:16] * maxped (~dingo@ip68-102-96-181.ks.ok.cox.net) Quit (Ping timeout: 245 seconds)
[1:17] <godzirra> Done.
[1:17] <godzirra> Working as expected.
[1:17] <marl_scot1> ok, getting the correct values at pin 7?
[1:17] <marl_scot1> ok
[1:17] <godzirra> Well, I'm not seeing 3.3v
[1:17] <godzirra> But I am seeing poewr
[1:17] <marl_scot1> what are you getting?
[1:17] <godzirra> and I see it drop to 0
[1:17] <godzirra> If I'm using ACv, I see .17 or so.
[1:17] <marl_scot1> should be dc voltage
[1:18] <marl_scot1> there is no ac voltage on the pi

[1:19] <godzirra> I have a cheap meter, I don't have a poewr connector shield.
[1:19] <godzirra> Oh, I know when its jumping becuae I'm moving.
[1:19] <godzirra> this is jumping because there's no DC.

[1:19] <marl_scot1> noramlly seeing it jump like that when you are not pressing the button indicates you are not getting a good connection.
[1:20] <godzirra> this is jumping from 0 to -190mV
[1:20] <marl_scot1> ok, try testing between 0v and each side of the reisistor

[1:24] <godzirra> k
[1:24] <marl_scot1> one side should be 0v, the other should be 3.3v

[4:50] <SwK> so other than lack of protection from F3 is there another reason not to pump regulated 5v in via the GPIO header
[4:50] <SwK> yes I would add in my own protection before hand
[4:51] <Firehopper> no reason that I know of.
[4:52] <Firehopper> People power the pi via a usb hub too..
[4:52] <Firehopper> I know my 2.0 pi can be powered this way
[4:55] <piney> SwK, only other reason i can think of are the wire traces could be too small. but that doesn't stop me from powering it that way
[4:56] <piney> i think they say 30ma on those pins. not sure if power or ground is the limitation either
[4:57] <SwK> 30ma is about all you can pull outta the GPIOs connected to the BMC part then you start blowing junctions in it
[4:57] * Firehopper (~Firehoppe@pool-71-175-194-74.phlapa.east.verizon.net) Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[4:59] <SwK> piney have you measured powered load?
[4:59] <piney> I know that, but think i read about the same limitation for the power pins. (5v, i know 3v3 is low)
[4:59] <SwK> err power load heh
[4:59] <SwK> have you see the size of the 3v3 regularer?
[4:59] <piney> no I haven't. don't know if i would trust my $1.99 multi meter for an accurate reading there :)
[5:00] <piney> yea, very tiny
[5:00] * ahven (~kala@ Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[5:00] <SwK> and theres just copper for a heatsink on it
[5:01] <SwK> so i would imaging loading up the 3v3 rail there would probably cause some issues w/ out something to help dump the heat
[5:01] <piney> i have an lm317 on a breadboard for external 3v3 stuff
[5:02] * Wired203 (~Wired203@69-92-57-16.cpe.cableone.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[5:02] <piney> no heatsink on that, but drawing ~250ma max and feeding it 5v in
[5:03] <piney> perfect place for a linear power supply there.
[5:03] <SwK> yeah
[5:05] <piney> one thing i did think of, powering the pi from the gpio pins
[5:06] <SwK> I was thinking of maybe putting something like a TO220 packaged LDO regulator on a plate with a power controller (something like those outboard switches everyone is doing)
[5:07] <piney> if i did have a good bit of devices drawing current from the breadboard, and the power supply im using is powered off or fails while a powered hub was backfeeding. or a micro usb cable was plugged in powering it.
[5:07] <SwK> that way I can power it up from button press (or maybe something like an ATtiny) then have it power off on 'shutdown -h'
[5:08] <piney> i might add a mosfet to switch the power on the pi making sure the breadboard has power febore turning on that line
[5:08] <piney> before*
[5:09] <SwK> I
[5:09] <SwK> i'm thinking along the lines of oh idk 6vdc input via rechargeable battery pack
[5:10] <piney> yea, that sounds interesting.
[5:10] <piney> an attiny could do the shutdown too with a pin to the pi
[5:10] <SwK> yeah
[5:10] <piney> or just even a momentary switch
[5:10] <SwK> i was thinking momentary heh
[5:11] <SwK> hit the switch to power it up
[5:11] <piney> i have a lantronix xport that i need to learn how to control the gpio pins on. i want one to reboot the pi using the reset switch header
[5:11] <SwK> thats the other thing I want to be able to do also
[5:12] <Wired203> momentary to gpio to turn on and off, I'm interested =P
[5:12] <SwK> well I'm working on a phone lol
[5:12] <Wired203> like do a sudo halt on keypress
[5:12] <piney> tried controling the xport's gpio pins using udp, and i get wrong responses back from the xport. taking a break and going to get back to that

[5:14] <piney> i'm very slowly making a weather station
[5:14] <SwK> piney: the signal on the GPIO pin is fine to do the 'sudo shutdown now' but I want to do like 'halt -p'
[5:15] <piney> i don't know the different power down states that well. are they different?
[5:15] <Wired203> sudo halt works well
[5:15] <SwK> i've been working on a keypad and LCD plate, and i've got plenty of real estate left over for V reg and power control
[5:16] <Wired203> heh I had to do shutdown -r now on one of our linux servers at work today, I was like what a HUGE pi
[5:16] <piney> that's on my todo list
[5:16] <SwK> halt -p on a full PC (or mac) actually triggers the PSU to shut down (like holding down the power button)
[5:16] <piney> ahh, makes sense
[5:16] <SwK> piney: the LCD/Keypad is on your todo list?
[5:16] <piney> yes
[5:17] <SwK> done
[5:17] <Wired203> my todo list is getting mame running smooth lol

[5:17] <piney> up down left right, maybe two others
[5:17] <piney> have a link?
[5:18] <SwK> I did 4x3 matrix (ie: dtmf), D Pad w/ 'enter' and 'cancel' buttons, w/ 16x2 LCD ???. see switchpi.org
[5:18] <SwK> if you want just an LCD with a DPad and enter button, adafruit has a cheap kit with all the bits for like $20
[5:19] <piney> cool, i was looking at this: http://dx.com/p/lcd-keypad-shield-for-arduino-duemilanove-lcd-1602-118059

[5:19] <piney> pcb designing is still over my head. looked in to it a little
[5:20] <piney> going to do the laser printer method first i think
[5:20] <SwK> osh park is like cheap
[5:20] <piney> yea, about the same thing
[5:20] <SwK> I did 3 board about 1/2 the size of the pi for $15
[5:20] <SwK> piney: that one on adafruit is RGB back lit
[5:20] <piney> yea they are. but for just the first few, printing them your self can be nice
[5:21] <piney> ahh, the rgb is a nice feature
[5:21] <SwK> I've screwed enough up lol
[5:21] <piney> going in my basement on a wall though, so not needed. i like cheap too :)

[5:22] <Wired203> I had that
[5:22] <piney> breadboard works well for me atm :)
[5:22] <Wired203> came with the plates, acid, and the pen to mark your lines
[5:22] <SwK> Wired203: complete with the special "resist pen" that looked like a sharpie lol
[5:22] <Wired203> before radio shack became a phone/cheap junk store
[5:22] <Wired203> was exactly like a sharpie lol
[5:23] <piney> when they had quality products on the shelf
[5:23] * hybr1d8 (~cjd@ has left #raspberrypi
[5:23] <SwK> Wired203: ikr??? they should change the name to "Cellphone Shack" and be done with it???. altho, you know they starting to stock a ton of arduinos and related stuff now
[5:23] <Wired203> hell when they had transistors, resistors, and any parts you wanted in stock
[5:23] <piney> <-- worked @ radioshack in the late 90's
[5:23] <piney> they are the reason i hate retail. they tought me that :)
[5:23] <Wired203> ooo arduinos that's worth looking at
[5:23] <SwK> <--- used to have a stupid radioshack budget in the late 80s lol
[5:24] <piney> i grew up using a trs-80 too
[5:24] <Wired203> in the 80s it wasn't stupid lol
[5:24] <SwK> Wired203: i was there the other night looking for a small speaker (and I failed) but they actually had ATmeg Minty kits in stock
[5:24] <Wired203> now you need a digikey or element 14 budget lol
[5:25] <piney> they are getting in to arduinos
[5:25] <SwK> Wired203: lolol shhh dont let my GF see what I've spent at Newark, Adafruit and Digikey lately lol
[5:25] <Wired203> frys electronics is more radio shack than radio shack
[5:25] <SwK> the closest fry's is 7 hours away from me
[5:25] <Wired203> lol my wife was out of town this weekend, I had to clean up the pc mess before she got home
[5:26] <piney> i was there last month though, needed two cr123a batteries. i know they are expensive, but $20 for two no-name batteries is just robbery.
[5:26] <Wired203> rebuilding my HTPC it's been shelved for a while
[5:26] <Wired203> blech batterys, cables, etc is what ebay is for
[5:26] <piney> i buy them in bulk for $.83 each for name brand ones, just didnt have any with me atm
[5:26] <Wired203> shipped from china to california and cheap as dirt
[5:26] <SwK> Wired203: i've been doing some extra projects to fund a small 60W laser cutter now I have the money, but she says I cant have it until we move to a bigger house??? (we should be listing this one on the market by friday lol)
[5:27] <Wired203> then shipping from ca is 3-4 days to the house
[5:27] <Wired203> SwK I couldn't build an arcade till we had a bigger house
[5:27] <Wired203> now I'm planning on building 3 starting with a pi bartop lol
[5:28] <SwK> Wired203: I told her if we moved it had to have atleast 10 acres, and either an existing 2000 sq ft+ shop or room for me to build one immediately
[5:28] <Wired203> which I'm building with my change jar LOL
[5:28] <Wired203> I wanted at least 2 acres but settled for 1/2 an acre
[5:28] <SwK> heh
[5:28] <piney> bigger house = more taxes. i live in NJ and have a good bit of property, taxes are enough as is :(
[5:28] <SwK> what exit?
[5:28] <Wired203> but I have a 1500 square foot basement, 1/2 man cave, 1/2 storage and shop

[5:31] <Wired203> my house is in town, well we live in a smaller area lol but 2300sq house not including the basement 1/2 acre and we paid 140k and didn't even fight the price. I just asked the guy to pay closing

[5:31] <Wired203> this summer I may be building the shed
[5:32] <Wired203> I'm thinking a 10x10 wood kit for 800 from home depot shouldn't be too bad
[5:32] <piney> wish i built the garage / barn before the house. would of helped me a lot
[5:32] <Wired203> use the nail gun, glue, couple of screws for added measure
[5:32] <SwK> Wired203: yeah thats what I'm talking about there??? we looked at some 2 to 3 acre places but the neighbors were just to close??? long narrow lots
[5:33] <piney> yea, moving to the country is all about the lack of neighbors
[5:33] <Wired203> empty lot on the side of us, we wanted to buy it but realtors said owner wasn't selling as he split the lots, guy comes by 3 months ago after my wife lost her job and says he would of sold it to us doh
[5:33] <SwK> doh
[5:33] <Wired203> and was asking us if we wanted to buy it for 20k and he would carry it double doh

[5:35] <Wired203> so I can play with openelec etc and leave the 16gb for the bartop
[5:36] <SwK> I spent the extra bucks to buy a pile of those adafruit micro sd adapers
[5:36] <piney> there is a lot that a friend of mine owns, 11 acres. ive been thinking about that too. the thing is the regulations say no house on the land. i was thinking a pole barn to park my toys in / man cave. i hate dealing with that bureaucracy tho
[5:36] <Wired203> could always wait for black friday when they are practically giving them away
[5:36] <SwK> then found some vendor on amazon selling the 4G cards for like $4 or $4.5 heh
[5:36] <SwK> piney no house? what is ag land?

[5:37] <SwK> yeah
[5:37] <piney> that area says one house per 35 acres
[5:37] <SwK> bury iso container they'll never notice it

[5:44] <ccolorado> Hi there. I have a very slow network. I found once a tweaking to some /etc/ file that took my speeds from 1MB/s to 3MB/s. I cant find this information again ( my SD died and i am reinstalling ). 3MB/s is nicer is there any way to have the regular 10MB/s over ehternet connection ?
[5:44] <Wired203> yeah did a few trips to PA when I lived in CT, trunk full, backseat full, and speeding down a 5 lane highway cop comes hauling up on my rear with lights on, thankfully for the accident on the other side of the highway a few miles down
[5:45] <Wired203> ccolorado I got decent speeds with my ethernet
[5:45] <ccolorado> Wired203: out of the box ?
[5:45] <piney> ccolorado, i doubt the network is the bottleneck. how are you testing the speed?
[5:45] <ccolorado> piney: rsync and samba access
[5:45] <piney> writing to my sd card can be around that speed
[5:46] <Wired203> out of the box with pimame build
[5:46] <ccolorado> piney: i am not writing to the sd
[5:46] <Wired203> I can copy over direct connected ftp about 9 gigs in 45 mins
[5:46] <hyperair> try iperf or netcat or something.
[5:46] <piney> ccolorado, reading from sd card?

[5:47] <ccolorado> piney: nope
[5:47] <ccolorado> Wired203: nope
[5:47] <piney> i wget a file to /dev/null to test speed coming in
[5:47] <SwK> lol
[5:47] <hyperair> heh yeah that works.

[5:49] <Wired203> I should look at my old cameras and thief their cards lol
[5:49] <SwK> I wonder how well FreeNAS would run on a pi lol
[5:49] <Wired203> don't think freenas ever did arm

[6:29] <DropBear> hexxeh has the update scripts which is a pre-compiled kernel. I need the headers though
[6:29] <DropBear> i'm using https://github.com/raspberrypi/linux for the kernel
[6:30] <DropBear> which looks like hexxeh contribs to
[6:30] <Wired203> yeah I went looking for the headers so I could compile a usb wifi driver and did some reading about getting them etc, they really should be readily available

[6:32] <Wired203> that's basically a step by step
[6:32] <DropBear> yea, especially when make-kpkg creates .deb files for installing when the kernel is built.
[6:33] <DropBear> wish there was a "stable" and "dev" builds. It's a moving target from what raspbian pushes to what is in git
[6:33] <DropBear> builds/branch
[6:33] <Wired203> I gave up on that adapter, then I compiled it on my htpc rebuild which I used debian and found out while the wireless tested well on my win7 boxes and worked on debian I never tried to stream a real amount of data through it which makes it choke lol
[6:34] <Wired203> yeah and I wish they had previous builds from the download page as well
[6:36] <Wired203> verified the choking on files even on win7 oops, good thing it was only 5 bucks shipped lol

[7:02] <fr0g911> yeah buddy i called the company lol
[7:03] <piney> cool
[7:03] <fr0g911> he said what i was doing was currect
[7:03] <fr0g911> well what you told me
[7:03] <piney> cool, bad camera?
[7:03] <fr0g911> and it still wasnt working he took me threw it all
[7:03] <fr0g911> and turns out it was my rj45
[7:03] <piney> ahh
[7:03] <fr0g911> i musta not crimped it good
[7:04] <piney> they take experience
[7:04] <piney> and i still mess up a little less than 10%
[7:04] <fr0g911> i've been doing it for awhile too lol
[7:04] <piney> was it an affordable camera?
[7:04] <fr0g911> oh it didnt burn the cam
[7:04] <piney> sounds like it has good customer support
[7:04] <fr0g911> ohh they dont sell the cam
[7:05] <fr0g911> they just sold me the poe
[7:05] <piney> ahh
[7:05] <piney> good support anyway
[7:05] <fr0g911> there pretty good said hes gonna try and send me the inverter box asap
[7:05] <fr0g911> yea really good support
[7:05] <fr0g911> pretty happy it worked
[7:05] <piney> cool.
[7:06] <fr0g911> thanks for your help btw
[7:06] <fr0g911> this is gonna save me alot of pain

[7:07] <piney> when it's that small every bit counts lol
[7:07] <fr0g911> true that
[7:07] <fr0g911> i use foscam
[7:08] <fr0g911> not big into the big ass cams like that
[7:08] <fr0g911> plus my customers like to beable to move the cams ptz
[7:08] <fr0g911> from iphone and android
[7:08] <piney> ptz is nice
[7:08] <fr0g911> and it cost the same as that big boy
[7:08] <piney> i have done some pelco ptz stuff a few years ago, was fun
[7:09] <fr0g911> yea the cams you can controll fully in mirc sockets
[7:09] <fr0g911> im gonna be working on that soon
[7:09] <piney> made a camera roll on an I beam over a weigh scale at a scrap yard (recycle center) so they could view what was in the truck better

[7:15] <piney> i like that some of their fixed lens cameras can have the lens changed
[7:15] <fr0g911> im so close to having the pi record like a dvr system for the foscam right now
[7:15] <fr0g911> but it is recording the stream in ancii
[7:15] <piney> i have a nuuo dvr, im gonna see if foscam works
[7:16] <piney> nvr*
[7:16] <piney> nope, not on their list
[7:16] <piney> they want one of those golden cameras
[7:17] <piney> thats why its still new in box
[7:17] <fr0g911> hahaha
[7:17] <fr0g911> theres work arounds

[7:22] <fr0g911> or have to be wired in
[7:22] <piney> network cams, but it has a vendor / camera list of supported cams

[9:45] <marl_scot1> cityLights, there is very little power output via the jack, you can use a speeker attached directly to it, but you wont have much volume
[9:45] <marl_scot1> never tried it, so not sure if you would be able to really hear anything much from it
[9:45] <marl_scot1> a lot easier to use a small amp kit
[9:46] <cityLights> I think there are ceramic speakers that can make more nosie for less power

[9:48] <marl_scot1> if you have a hunt around, you should be able to find a mini stereo amp kit that will run from 5v, and then piggy back this off your 5v supply to the pi
[9:49] <marl_scot1> just remember that it will need to piggy back off the supply rather than the pi for its power, as i do not think the pi would be able to supply enough power to run an amp via its onboard conectors

[11:35] <gordonDrogon> asaru, which pin?
[11:35] <adasAFK> Jck_true: yes. its set as input..
[11:35] <gordonDrogon> asaru, oops - wrong
[11:35] <gordonDrogon> adasAFK, which pin?
[11:36] <adasAFK> gordonDrogon: wiringPi pin 0
[11:36] <gordonDrogon> adasAFK, ah, an input pin with nothing connected will 'float' and sometimes be high, sometimes low.
[11:36] <gordonDrogon> adasAFK, try this: gpio mode 0 up
[11:37] <gordonDrogon> that will set the internal pull-up resistor and it'll stay high all the time - until something external pulls it low. use gpio mode 0 down for the opposite.
[11:37] <gordonDrogon> gpio mode 0 tri <-- turns it off.
[11:38] <adasAFK> gordonDrogon: but the wiringPi pin 0 here is connected to the positive of an led
[11:38] <gordonDrogon> adasAFK, if the pin is still an input, it's still not going to read anything from a reverse biased LED.
[11:38] <adasAFK> and the negative is connected to header pin 9 which is ground on the Rpi
[11:39] <adasAFK> gordonDrogon: ah okay. but how come that is the only pin thats floating? the rest of the pins seem stable on gpio readall output
[11:39] <gordonDrogon> hope it's connected via a resistor...
[11:39] <adasAFK> gordonDrogon: oops no.. should i?
[11:39] <gordonDrogon> adasAFK, you've connected an antennae to the pin - it'll pick up more noise ...
[11:40] <gordonDrogon> adasAFK, YES! You'll potentially burn out the LED and the GPIO pin without a resistor...
[11:40] <adasAFK> oh sory.. ill get one..
[11:40] <gordonDrogon> 330?? is safe.
[11:40] <Jck_true> Don't let that magic smoke get away....
[11:41] <adasAFK> i have one in hand .. but not sure which way to put the resistor.. or any way is okay? forgive my ignorance
[11:41] <Jck_true> Yeah they go both ways
[11:42] <gordonDrogon> yes, unlike diodes they go either way.
[11:43] <gordonDrogon> So what I'd do is connect the long leg of the diode to the GPIO pin, the shorter leg to the resistor and the other end of the resistor to the 0v pin.
[11:43] <gordonDrogon> remember: Long Legs are a Positive Thing.
[11:43] <adasAFK> hah - )
[11:43] <Jck_true> Consider a resistor as a fixed valve - or a tube with a smaller diameter
[11:44] <adasAFK> gordonDrogon: thanks for teh clarifications. thanks Jck_true . ill fix it.. hope is works now
[11:44] <Jck_true> Limits how much "fluid" can go through it
[11:44] <gordonDrogon> Jck_true, the use of the word 'valve' or 'tube' here might not be appropriate with older people like me :)
[11:44] <gordonDrogon> adasAFK, gpio mode 0 out ; gpio write 0 1 ; gpio write 0 0
[11:45] <Jck_true> gordonDrogon: I got my IR reciever working this weekend - Your GPIO lib for my display and some linux I2C for my RTC clock :)
[11:45] <gordonDrogon> going back to earlier, a reverse biased diode is actually a good source of noise and is used in electronics noise generators and some random number generators.
[11:45] <gordonDrogon> Jck_true, excellent!
[11:45] <Jck_true> gordonDrogon: Just need all the software for my alarm clock :)
[11:46] <gordonDrogon> Jck_true, think about daylight savings/ clocks going back/forwards - this past weekend in the americas I think, end of the month in europe...
[11:46] <Jck_true> gordonDrogon: Out of curiosity - is there any chance for a "pulseIn()" method like on arduino? With the 4th timer etc?
[11:46] <gordonDrogon> spring forwards, fall backwards and all that.
[11:46] <adasAFK> hmm.. that random number generator thing is new for me.. ncie
[11:46] <gordonDrogon> Jck_true, doesn't pulse in use a strobe input?
[11:47] <gordonDrogon> Jck_true, i'll have a look at the arduino lib.
[11:47] <gordonDrogon> adasAFK, got that LED lit up yet?
[11:47] <Jck_true> gordonDrogon: "Reads a pulse (either HIGH or LOW) on a pin. For example, if value is HIGH, pulseIn() waits for the pin to go HIGH, starts timing, then waits for the pin to go LOW and stops timing. Returns the length of the pulse in microseconds. Gives up and returns 0 if no pulse starts within a specified time out."
[11:51] <adasAFK> gordonDrogon: not yet.. im trying to light it up by generating an interrupt on wiringPi pin 7. and all this using haskell bindings to your wiringPi lib : ) so some setup to do. Im trying to see if the callback from the C library when an interrupt occurs.. calls the appropriate haskell function
[11:51] <Jck_true> You should test with the GPIO command first - Just to verify everything is wired correctly (And that you didn't blow your pin)
[11:52] <Xeph> when writing to my external hdd (ntfs), maximum write speed is about 3.5M/s. is there an obvious mistake i'd have made? it's plugged to a usb2.0 hub, lsusb tells me the both the hub and the port support 480M
[11:52] <gordonDrogon> yea, start easy :)
[11:52] <Xeph> read speed is about 16M
[11:52] <gordonDrogon> Jck_true, ah right - that'll be easy, but prone to Linux (and the hardware) adding jitter to the timings though.
[11:53] <gordonDrogon> Xeph, I'm told that using the FUSE NTFS driver is slow...
[11:53] <Jck_true> gordonDrogon: I figured :( Just wondered what interrupt/timer4 magic you could add
[11:53] <gordonDrogon> Jck_true, from userland, then max. interrupt speed is 66K/sec.
[11:54] <gordonDrogon> right. it's fresh bread and coffee time. back inna bit!

[11:55] <Jck_true> Guess I'll just use my arduino nano with the distance measure then :)
[11:56] <adasAFK> Jck_true: i did the gpio command but the led glows very dim.. hope its nothing wrong with the pin
[11:57] <Jck_true> adasAFK: But you can turn it on an off?
[11:57] <adasAFK> yea
[11:58] <adasAFK> gpio write 0 1 turns on and gpio write 0 0 turn off
[11:58] <Jck_true> adasAFK: http://led.linear1.org/1led.wiz - Smaller resistor should give you more light - Just make sure you don't pull more than 16mA
[12:00] <Jck_true> adasAFK: This looks equally good - http://ledcalc.com/
[12:00] <Jck_true> adasAFK: Full glow while staying under 16mA is 82Ohm
[12:00] <Xeph> gordonDrogon: that was my guess as it caused most cpu load during file transfer. but sometimes people know these magic options :)
[12:01] <Jck_true> So you could try replacing that 300 Ohm with something smaller

[12:01] <Jck_true> adasAFK: Anything above 82 Ohms (And lets just say above 100Ohms just to be safe)
[12:02] <adasAFK> if i do a pulldown on an input pin and if i send a HIGH signal to the pin from an external source .. will it go HIGH or will it still be pulled LOW?
[12:03] <adasAFK> or do i simply turn it off using the "tri" mode?
[12:03] <Jck_true> adasAFK: What is your input when it's not "high"
[12:04] <Jck_true> A switch that isn't connected?
[12:04] <adasAFK> Jck_true: the switch is connected to pin 7. Cos i want wiringPi pin 7 to go HIGH when i switch on the pin

[12:05] <adasAFK> when not "high" , the input from the switch should be "low" cos no signal passes through the switch right..?
[12:06] <gordonDrogon> adasAFK, don' use 'tri' mode to turn anything off.
[12:06] * Mikelevel (~MoVeWoRk@139.Red-2-137-191.dynamicIP.rima-tde.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[12:06] <gordonDrogon> adasAFK, make sure the pin is in output mode - in that mode the internal resistors don't have any effect.
[12:07] <adasAFK> gordonDrogon: but wiringPi pin 7 must be Input right? because it will be receving the signal from the switch, when i turn on the switch..
[12:08] <adasAFK> i hope im not confusing
[12:10] <Jck_true> Set it to pulldown - And let the switch close 3V3 to the pin
[12:10] * hylas (~hylas@unaffiliated/hylas) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)

[12:11] <Jck_true> And when not pressed it's "LOW" because it's being pulled to ground
[12:11] <adasAFK> okay .. here is the setup.. wiringPi pin is connected to a switch. Wiring pi pin 0 is conncted to led along with resistor that gordonDrogon mentioned...
[12:11] <Jck_true> 2sec let me just check this before you do anything
[12:11] <adasAFK> oops missed the pin number in the first sentence..
[12:11] <adasAFK> its wiringPi pin 7
[12:12] * ryanteck (~ryan@fsf/member/Ryanteck) has joined #raspberrypi

[12:14] <gordonDrogon> is the switch connected to 0v or 3.3v ?
[12:15] <gordonDrogon> if the switch is connected to 0v, then you need to set the internal pull-up resistor - gpio mode 7 up - then the pin will read high when the switch is open, and low when you push it.
[12:16] <gordonDrogon> you'll need to cope with this in your code, but that's not an issue. Just test for 0 = switch pushed.
[12:16] <gordonDrogon> use gpio read 7 to check the switch input.
[12:16] <adasAFK> gordonDrogon: those spiders look terrifying up close.. : ) one end of switch is conncted to wiringPi pin 7 and other end to 3.3v
[12:16] <gordonDrogon> adasAFK, ok - in which case - gpio mode 7 down - to set the internal pull-downs.
[12:17] <gordonDrogon> Also - some people like to use a resistor in-series with the switch just in-case you accidentally set the pin to output mode - if you do that and you make it low, you short circuit the +3.3v to 0v through the GPIO pins...
[12:17] <gordonDrogon> but if you're careful you'll be OK.
[12:18] <gordonDrogon> any low-value resistor would be fine - anything 1K or less (down to about 220??)

[16:40] <zleap> however this channel is very active so i am sure someone can help
[16:40] <vibhav> Ah okay
[16:40] <IT_Sean> there is no truly official Raspi channel. We are the only channel "blessed" by The Foundation, though.
[16:41] * ForSpareParts__ (~ForSpareP@ Quit (Quit: ForSpareParts__)
[16:41] <vibhav> Anyways, I have a mobile phone charger which has an output of 5.0V, 0.7A. It should work with the raspberry pi, right?
[16:41] <IT_Sean> that is the absolute minimum.
[16:41] <IT_Sean> that said, it could work.
[16:42] <IT_Sean> You probably want something a bit beefier. Especially if you intend to use USB devices w/ the pi.
[16:42] <IT_Sean> The ideal PSU is 5v @ 1A.
[16:42] <zleap> should do,
[16:42] <zleap> it would be fine for the Model A i think
[16:42] <vibhav> IT_Sean: what about 5.0V and 0.2A?
[16:43] <vibhav> IT_Sean: i mean 2.0A
[16:43] <IT_Sean> 2A is fine
[16:43] <IT_Sean> As long as it is 5V and a minimum of 700mA (0.7A) it should do.
[16:44] <IT_Sean> Try it and see.
[16:44] <vibhav> IT_Sean: What about power over ethernet?
[16:44] <IT_Sean> the raspi does not support PoE

[16:45] <vibhav> Thanks IT_Sean
[16:45] <IT_Sean> You are welcome.
[16:45] <IT_Sean> Getting a model A or B?
[16:45] <vibhav> B
[16:45] <IT_Sean> Nice.
[16:45] <IT_Sean> I've got one.
[16:45] <vibhav> Indeed
[16:45] <IT_Sean> It's running OpenELEC quite nicely.
[16:45] <vibhav> The model B looks pretty neat
[16:46] <IT_Sean> It's a neat little device. Just make sure you have everything you need.
[16:46] <vibhav> IT_Sean: i plan to run a vanilla Build of Debian on it
[16:46] <vibhav> Instead of raspbian
[16:47] <IT_Sean> Besides the raspi, you'll be wanting an SD card to put the OS on, a keyboard and mouse, and a powered USB hub if you plan to use any USB devices besides a simpple keyboard and mouse.

[16:50] <IT_Sean> The USB ports on your PC will, most likely, NOT supply enough power to run it.
[16:50] <IT_Sean> you really need to use a good USB power supply.
[16:50] <vibhav> IT_Sean: I thought it provided too much power
[16:50] <IT_Sean> no, it's still 5v.
[16:51] <IT_Sean> But not enough amperage, in most cases.
[16:51] <vibhav> Ah
[16:51] <zleap> current
[16:51] <mjr> Depends on the PC really. Many do go over spec.

[16:53] <IT_Sean> Too much voltage, and you get this: http://img405.imageshack.us/img405/4571/fcyna4w.jpg
[16:53] <vibhav> So, 5V and 2A should be sufficient

[16:53] <Tachyon`> ahh
[16:54] <zleap> burnt out a bit that eh
[16:54] <vibhav> IT_Sean: I haven't bought one, and your are giving me nightmares :(
[16:54] <Tachyon`> well, yeah, but the 5v is regulated before it gets to anything but the USB I thought
[16:54] <IT_Sean> LOL!
[16:54] * TommehM (~TomM@unaffiliated/tommehm) has joined #raspberrypi
[16:54] <zleap> vibhav, you will be fine
[16:54] <IT_Sean> Tachyon`: the 5v input on the Pi? Not regulated.
[16:54] <Tachyon`> the pi doesn't run on 5v though
[16:55] <Tachyon`> just the USB does, the pi runs on 3.3 and less
[16:55] <vibhav> zleap: Hopefully
[16:55] <IT_Sean> Ah, yes, that is regulated. The 5v circuit for USB is not.
[16:55] <Tachyon`> I believe the cpu runs on about 2, althuoghcouldn't swear to it
[16:55] <Tachyon`> aye, so why were things that weren't USB damaged
[16:55] <mjr> a friend actually did feed her pi ~7v (the supply _said_ 5v), and while the 3.3v regulator got somewhat hot, it worked. Wouldn't recommend it though. (And she had no USB devices hooked up)
[16:56] <Tachyon`> yeah, certainly wouldn't recommend going over 5, I just can't see how it resulted in the image unless something else was going on, do the regulators break down and pass the input voltage after a certain point?
[16:56] <mjr> probably because the regulator got damaged

[17:27] <vibhav> zleap: tried the build-dep commands for nethack

[19:37] <IT_Sean> lord4163: why not use OpenELEC? 's got a nice easy install script

[19:41] <lord4163> I don't like it either people pushing OpenElec without learning Linux and tweak around - I think that's the goal with the pi

[19:42] <angelos> tbh, IT_Sean's suggestion was quite good, if you're going for xbmc only, OpenELEC is perfect

[19:51] <zleap> cool
[19:51] <jondot> hey guys. I'm thinking of using the rpi as a poor man's NAS
[19:51] <gordonDrogon> I think they were just trying to make their presence known though - they did sponsor a big chunk of the event.
[19:52] <jondot> got an old 120GB laptop disk, want to make use of it. what do you think of the power consumption if I hook it to the USB on the pi?
[19:53] <angelos> well, 2.5" disks use <0.9A at I think 5V
[19:53] <gordonDrogon> very probably more than the Pi can source. Why not plug it in and see - the worst that can happen is that the Pi doesn't boot (or crashes if you plut it in 'hot').
[19:53] <angelos> well definitely more than the pi can handle
[19:53] <angelos> >0.5A
[19:54] <angelos> (mostly guessing numbers from the fact that USB 2.0 (max 0.5A) uses 2 ports for 2.5" disks, 3.0 (max 0.9A) only one)
[19:55] <jondot> hmm, so no one actually plugs a disk direct to the pi?
[19:55] <lord4163> Has someone actually somehow managed to get SATA on it?
[19:56] <angelos> well, I have a disk directly attached to the pi, but the disk itself has an external power supply
[19:56] <nid0> the pi makes a very very exceedingly poor nas, especially with unpowered disks
[19:56] <angelos> that's a 3.5" disk though
[19:56] <jondot> angelos, ooh. that might be a good use case for me. any chance of plugging the pi to the disk's power source? my ideal goal is to save power sockets as much as possible

[19:57] <angelos> don't think so, not for the usual 3.5" usb disk power supplies
[19:59] <jondot> if only the enclosure could power both the 3.5" and pi, then it would be like a 1-slot NAS. only more hackable this time because you're using a pi
[20:00] <nid0> and horribly slow
[20:00] <jondot> the pi is slower than the hardware on a NAS?
[20:00] <nid0> much
[20:00] <nid0> the problem is io, everything runs over a usb bus

[20:02] <jondot> how bad is it in terms of mb/s?
[20:02] <gordonDrogon> although usb bus is a tautology but what do I care...
[20:02] <nid0> it depends on exactly what you're transferring, for sequential reads of big files you wont notice much slowdown but for small file access your iops are gonna get crippled
[20:03] <jondot> i guess most of the stuff is movies and such. media files.
[20:03] <gordonDrogon> each xfer has to go over the same USB twice.
[20:03] <gordonDrogon> so storage -> usb -> Pi -> usb -> ethernet
[20:03] <jondot> well I do have the ethernet pi
[20:03] <nid0> the ethernet is just attached to the usb host
[20:03] <nid0> it all runs over usb
[20:03] <jondot> ah, yikes.
[20:04] <gordonDrogon> however it's slightly worse is that USB is half duplex and Ethetnet is full duplex, so the USB will switch direction and take several transactions to put stuff out over the Ethernet.
[20:04] <gordonDrogon> but in practice, as nid0 says - it should work, but performance won't be stellar ...
[20:05] <gordonDrogon> one of these days I might try it :)
[20:05] * zokeber (~Zokeber@unaffiliated/zokeber) has joined #raspberrypi
[20:05] <angelos> lemme try that
[20:05] <nid0> yeh, for media files that switching is no major problem, its just for small random access you'll end up with iops thatll make you want to rip your hair out
[20:05] <kkit> jondot, it isn't fast
[20:05] <kkit> i get 1-2MB/s from the pi
[20:05] <jondot> ouch
[20:05] <hellsing> the pi is not know for being fast sadly
[20:05] <angelos> 59 MB in 32 seconds
[20:06] <angelos> i.e. 1.8 MB/s avg. write speed
[20:06] <jondot> so I guess I won't have a chance to reuse some of my old hardware. such a pitty
[20:06] <kkit> it's good enough for my purposes as a NAS, but i'm not doing anything that requires speed
[20:06] <hellsing> you can reuse, but don t expect top performances
[20:07] <angelos> 59 MB read in 28 seconds, i.e. 2.1 MB/s avg
[20:07] <angelos> (admittedly via wlan, but 802.11n)
[20:08] <jondot> yea, too bad. I hope next gen pis will have a separate bus
[20:08] <angelos> that is, my laptop is connected via wlan, the rpi is wired
[20:08] <angelos> yeah, sata and ethernet on the SoC would be awesome heh
[20:09] <jondot> the CPUs on moderate level home NAS are modest. the pi would have smoked it
[20:09] <home> :(
[20:09] <hellsing> sudo hdparm -tT /dev/sda
[20:09] <hellsing> /dev/sda:
[20:09] <hellsing> Timing cached reads: 246 MB in 2.01 seconds = 122.40 MB/sec
[20:09] <hellsing> Timing buffered disk reads: 14 MB in 3.15 seconds = 4.45 MB/sec
[20:09] <hellsing> so only local
[20:09] <hellsing> so divide by two for network speed

[20:49] <Dark_Apostrophe> Hello, I'm running the official Debian release (Raspbian, I think its name was).

Will anyone help me out?

[20:54] <knoppies> Dark_Apostrophe, you can give ARandR a try.
[20:54] <knoppies> Dark_Apostrophe, I haven't tried it on the RPi though.
[20:54] <knoppies> Dark_Apostrophe, it might also be a xorg.conf issue.
[20:54] * yorick (~yorick@oftn/member/yorick) has joined #raspberrypi
[20:55] <Dark_Apostrophe> ARandR? I've heard of XRandR, which I believe has to do with multiple monitors, but not ARandR
[20:55] <knoppies> ARandR is a graphical interface for XRandR, and its more than just multiple monitors, you can use it to change resolutions.
[20:55] <Dark_Apostrophe> xorg.conf is a frequent source of annoyance - but I have no clue about what settings the RPi would like. Were it an nVidia card or something, it would be easier.
[20:55] <Dark_Apostrophe> Oh
[20:55] <yorick> hi! yesterday I was here with an unworking SD card when flashing from linux. today, I flashed it on windows and it worked, the RPi will boot, and then not get any dhcp lease. I suppose it has about as much trouble with the card as my own linux

[22:08] <Gelb> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BdLTDTAWHgo
[22:08] <seba-> yaodin, they have also a VERY low Rds on .)
[22:08] <Gelb> idea is, to put the eletronics of a modern internet radio into the case of an old valve radio (so no valves are involved). but i try to copy the "ui" of such old radios.
[22:08] <seba-> yaodin, you can run 50 A if you want :)
[22:09] <seba-> yaodin, i did with 10 A, you don't even need a heat sink
[22:09] <seba-> lol
[22:10] <yaodin> sweet, i'll probably have to anyway, it's going in a 32C 80% humidity room
[22:10] <seba-> yaodin, it was a part of a H-bridge (4-Nfets) for high current, quite cool
[22:10] <seba-> no

[22:35] <alex88_> hi guys, I had an sd with raspbmc that booted fine on my pi just got back from RMA
[22:35] <alex88_> then I wanted to install occidentalis, I've tried with the linux DD method with both 4MB and 1MB block size
[22:35] <alex88_> img sha1 is correct
[22:35] <alex88_> but still after connecting power I get just power led and green led blinks just one time
[22:36] <linuxstb> alex88_: What is the exact dd command you used?
[22:36] <alex88_> any idea?
[22:36] <Gelb> DDave: thanks.
[22:37] <alex88_> linuxstb: dd bs=1M if=/media/F2808A59808A2467/Users/Netbook/Desktop/Occidentalis_v02.img of=/dev/sdb
[22:37] <alex88_> I did also a sync after dd and then removed
[22:37] <alex88_> the sd
[22:38] <linuxstb> That dd command looks fine. I normally use "eject" - I don't know if that's any different to "sync" though.
[22:38] * genbattle (~quassel@122-61-58-156.jetstream.xtra.co.nz) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[22:39] <linuxstb> Hmm, "man sync" says that flushes filesystem buffers. But with dd, you're bypassing the filesystem layer.
[22:39] <alex88_> yup, it's just as a precaution
[22:40] <linuxstb> You could try dd'ing it back, and comparing checksum
[22:40] <linuxstb> You may want to use "count=X" as well, where X is the size of Occidentalis_v02.img in MB
[22:41] <alex88_> linuxstb: from result it actually flash only what it needs
[22:42] <alex88_> btw, dd'ing back will dd also free space?

[22:44] <linuxstb> alex88_: I'm not sure what you're asking. By default, dd will create an image the same size as the SD card. Use "count=X" to just read back the first X MB (the same size as the image you wrote to it)
[22:45] <alex88_> linuxstb: exactly that, ok let me try
[22:45] * owen_ (~owen@ Quit (Quit: Konversation terminated!)

[22:53] <yaodin> that's what i'm doing just didn't know if I should go for 3v3 exactly or a little above

[23:14] <scummos> yes
[23:14] <scummos> however I wonder how you managed to get python without setuptools
[23:14] <grindax> pksato: around 2 MB/s
[23:14] <alex88_> linuxstb: just checked sha1 and is fine
[23:15] <alex88_> that's strange
[23:15] <pksato> is not too slow. :) I dont remember scp rates of my rpi.
[23:16] <gordonDrogon> use scp with blowfish..
[23:16] <grindax> pksato: see the performance stats I put in the forum post. general network speed to/from the pi is a few multiples of that
[23:16] <netw1z> dunno - im just under wheezy default image
[23:16] <grindax> and the cpu isn't exactly being taxed
[23:16] <netw1z> everything else has been working find
[23:16] <netw1z> fine
[23:18] <linuxstb> alex88_: Then I've no ideas, apart from the common suggestions of trying another SD card, or another power supply. I guess it's probably also worth trying another distro (e.g. Raspbian)

[23:28] <pksato> grindax: try to copy to /dev/null
[23:28] <grindax> yes, even reads are 2MB from SD. directly on the Pi itself, reads from the SD are 19-20 MB/s
[23:28] <linuxstb> grindax: Just trying now - it's averaging about 4.1MB/s. This is running scp on the Pi, copying a remote file to the Pi.

[23:30] <linuxstb> Hmm, final figure was 3.5MB/s (a 320MB file)
[23:30] <alex88_> grindax: well I think that I/O + encryption/decryption overhead can make those values be fine
[23:31] <grindax> so going from almost 8MB/s down to 2 MB/s for encryption overhead is ok? but why is the cpu utilization so low while the transfer is taking place?
[23:31] <alex88_> linuxstb: tried with the 7mb image from raspbian too, same thing.. Maybe I'll try to flash tomorrow from the mac as I did for the other image
