[0:03] <GriffenJBS> does rpi have kms/drm?
[0:04] <Diaoul> hi
[0:04] <gordonDrogon> GriffenJBS, it has a dumb framebuffer... unless you want to poke the GPU with OpenGL ES ..
[0:05] <Diaoul> I'm looking for RAMRUN and RAMLOCK options in /etc/default/rcS as I found some references mentioning to set to yes for improved SD longetivity but I cannot find those option in the file
[0:05] <GriffenJBS> so no drm support
[0:05] <Diaoul> has something changed recently regarding /etc/default/rcS ?

[0:16] * plugwash (~plugwash@2001:5c0:1400:a::9cd) Quit (Ping timeout: 245 seconds)
[0:16] <bolivar> I'm using cfdisk... what's the difference between a primary partition and a logical partition?
[0:16] * KameSense (~KameSense@AMontpellier-654-1-190-204.w92-145.abo.wanadoo.fr) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:18] <pksato> logical partition are partitions inside a special primary partition called extended.
[0:19] <bolivar> I understand. So if I want two partitions on the disk, I could either have two primary partitions or one primary and two logical partitions inside?
[0:19] <pksato> ad, only 4 primary partitions are allowed
[0:20] <pksato> dos way is one primary, one extended, and many logicals.
[0:21] * MauveGnome (~MauveGnom@host86-164-71-181.range86-164.btcentralplus.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:21] <piney> ebswift, nice, how did you calibrate them?
[0:21] <piney> i think i'll add an offset option to my code now
[0:21] <ebswift> ice bath, there's a NIST video... i'll get you the link
[0:21] <piney> ahh, makes sense
[0:22] <ebswift> those sensors are mighty accurate, as you can see from my calibration info, mine are only a touch out
[0:22] <piney> same way they calibrate food thermometers
[0:22] <ebswift> yeah, skip the boiling calibration though, it's not worth it
[0:22] <bolivar> pksato: thank you

[0:24] * AeroNotix (~xeno@abop250.neoplus.adsl.tpnet.pl) Quit (Quit: Uploading hax.....)
[0:24] <bolivar> This is just for an external HDD to be used as storage
[0:24] <bolivar> not a system partition
[0:24] <ebswift> piney, also make sure you have the resistor in place, my sensors didn't have the resistor
[0:24] <pksato> ah... one primery
[0:24] * thomashunter (~thomashun@ Quit (Client Quit)
[0:24] <bolivar> I want to make two partitions, because one will be encrypted (for holding personal data) and one will be unencrypted, for movies, music etc

[1:51] <leftyfb> I'm trying to run a script right before shutdown. I've created an init script, it's in /etc/init.d/ symlinked to rc0.d and rc6.d and is executable and begins with K01. It's not being run at all. I tried just putting a plain bash script in /etc/rc6.d/K01test and just have "/usr/bin/touch /root/file" and it's not being run either. Mind you, the proper init script runs if I run with with "stop" as does the test script if I just run it.

[2:26] * Arthur_N (~magne@ti0076a340-dhcp0506.bb.online.no) has joined #raspberrypi
[2:27] <Arthur_N> hi, I'm having trouble booting my Raspberry Pi. The red LED lights up, but the green one doesn't
[2:30] <Arthur_N> I'm using a micro SD with adapter from Kingston, loaded with latest Raspbian image
[2:30] <seba-> Arthur_N, what is the power supply
[2:30] * thomashunter (~thomashun@ Quit (Quit: zZz)
[2:31] <pksato> mistake to transfer .img to sd.
[2:31] <Arthur_N> universal Micro USB travel charger with 1000 mA from hama
[2:31] <seba-> 1000 mA should be enough
[2:31] <seba-> have you made an ok image
[2:32] <seba-> with a proper tool
[2:32] <Arthur_N> I used dd
[2:32] <Arthur_N> as written on the wiki
[2:33] <pksato> dd ... of=/dev/sdg ? or dd ... of=/dev/sdg1
[2:33] <Arthur_N> /dev/sdb
[2:33] <seba-> try a different adapter
[2:33] <seba-> or measure if it really gives out 1 A
[2:33] <pksato> or, not proper inserted sd.
[2:33] <Arthur_N> I tried another SD card originally
[2:34] * dreamon_ (~dreamon@unaffiliated/dreamon) has joined #raspberrypi
[2:34] <Arthur_N> but apparently I bricked it after several failed attempts at trying to boot
[2:34] <pksato> to test PSU issues, remove all usb device. connect only (or even not) some monitor.
[2:35] <Arthur_N> I've tried mostly just with HDMI connected, and also without
[2:36] <pksato> or, use computer (desktop) usb port to power rpi.
[2:37] <seba-> that wouldn't 100% work
[2:38] <seba-> in theory it should give only 500 mA
[2:38] <seba-> but ok, most usb hubs don't follow the spec
[2:38] * dreamon__ (~dreamon@unaffiliated/dreamon) Quit (Ping timeout: 272 seconds)
[2:38] <Arthur_N> it is discouraged in the paper I got with the case
[2:39] * midnightmagic (~midnightm@unaffiliated/midnightmagic) has joined #raspberrypi
[2:39] * Shy (Shy@pdpc/supporter/bronze/shy) has joined #raspberrypi
[2:39] * pkrnj (~pkrnj@ has joined #raspberrypi
[2:40] <pksato> most desktop main board dont have power control on usb ports. only 1.6A polyfuse.
[2:41] <Arthur_N> well I can surely try - atm it's of no use anyway
[2:41] * dj_pi (~dj@c-107-5-25-243.hsd1.mi.comcast.net) Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[2:42] <seba-> i've had problems at first
[2:42] <seba-> it was a bad image
[2:42] <seba-> and bad power supply
[2:43] <seba-> but i've heard some SD cards don't work
[2:43] <Arthur_N> it might be the SD card, but it's odd that the one I bricked didn't work, since it was in the kit I bought
[2:44] <Arthur_N> so perhaps the image is corrupt
[2:44] <Arthur_N> need to verify
[2:45] * dj_pi (~dj@c-107-5-25-243.hsd1.mi.comcast.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[2:47] <Arthur_N> how do I know if the SD card is properly inserted, btw?
[2:47] <Arthur_N> it doesn't seem to "click" in place
[2:48] <Arthur_N> like in my netbook
[2:48] <PhotoJim> if you can boot of it, it's properly inserted :)
[2:48] <PhotoJim> it doesn't click.
[2:48] <PhotoJim> gently insert it until it won't go any further.
[2:48] <Arthur_N> yeah that's what I've been doing
[2:49] <Arthur_N> but it does seem to easily wiggle around in there...

[3:11] * Jevermeister (~Jevermeis@unaffiliated/jever) Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[3:11] <savagecroc> We're kicking of a project very similiar to OLPC (one laptop per child) and have been seriously looking at the Pi as the computer to use. A few questions, are the designs for the pi publically available and royalty free? (i.e. can we build our own)
[3:14] <piney> savagecroc, no, they are not publicly available
[3:15] <savagecroc> We need to add a few chips that aren't included in the pi's design (need audio in / encryption and for every 1 in 100 we need a communcations chip (like the qualcom GSM/CDMA/3G one)
[3:15] <piney> schematic is available, board design isn't. and not sure if you can get the broadcom chip easily
[3:15] <savagecroc> piney: We can get the chip
[3:16] <savagecroc> ok.. so the board design is not open
[3:16] <piney> the audio in can be done via an add-on board, what kind of encryption are you talking?
[3:16] <savagecroc> on-board encryption of the local storage (i.e. encrypting the flash)
[3:17] <savagecroc> i'm looking at just one of the infineon tpm 1.2 chips
[3:17] * revele (john.doe@d54C2B52A.access.telenet.be) Quit ()
[3:18] <savagecroc> piney: yeah.. although you can get chips that do audio in/out cheaper than what it would cost to manufacturer an add on board
[3:18] <piney> i'll agree there
[3:19] <savagecroc> also.. although we're going to start off with an initial rollout of 20k.. we hope if successful to be doing these in 100k batches.. so the cost is extremely important
[3:19] <piney> that chip most likely has something built in that isn't accessible easily on the pi board
[3:20] * com_kieffer (~com_kieff@ Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[3:21] <piney> what's done to the pi is a lot of what you are looking for, sadly, i don't see it being a viable option for your end product. great inspiration though
[3:21] <savagecroc> yeah
[3:21] <savagecroc> it's essentially how i got the idea
[3:21] * scummos (~sven@p4FDCF854.dip.t-dialin.net) Quit (Ping timeout: 264 seconds)
[3:21] <savagecroc> i thought wow.. we can build computers for $50
[3:22] <piney> absolutely
[3:23] <piney> why encryption though? even a usb microphone can be done for that price point with any volume
[3:23] <piney> any good sized volume
[3:23] <savagecroc> security
[3:24] <savagecroc> we wouldn't want anyone interfering with the platform
[3:24] <piney> you can encrypt the user's home folder fairly easily

[3:24] * Flexnard (~Flex@host-169-126-2-96.midco.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[3:24] <piney> maybe a 'barebones' build could do encryption. not too sure myself

[9:55] <gordonDrogon> so looks like issues releaseing wiringPi under lgpl when it includes gpl headers )-:
[9:56] <gordonDrogon> so I have to write my own implementation of those gpl headers to keep it lgpl.
[9:56] <gordonDrogon> bit of a bother, but not insurmountable.
[9:57] <RaTTuS|BIG> thats the viral nature of the GPL ....
[9:58] <RaTTuS|BIG> and why lgpl was invented
[9:58] <gordonDrogon> Yes.
[9:59] <gordonDrogon> normally not an issue, but it seems to stem from what we're doing on the Pi - which is effectively poking hardware from userland - something I guess was never expected do do in *nix, so /usr/include/linux/* is GPL - ie. part of the kernel.
[9:59] <gordonDrogon> but we need some of it to poke the I2C and SPI.
[9:59] <gordonDrogon> fortunately not a lot and as the underlying interfaces are well defined I can make my own implementation.
[10:00] <gordonDrogon> there are a few people using wiringPi in commercial projects and they are concerend about it...
[10:00] <RaTTuS|BIG> .... yes could be a problem,...
[10:01] <RaTTuS|BIG> on a side note ... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D4RupOgWAWg <- post breakfast stuff...
[10:01] <gordonDrogon> and I have to say; I'm using it myself in some commercial projects where the people paying me to do it don't want to release the code - quite yet...

[10:45] <Jck_true_> a PCI-E? :|
[10:45] <RaTTuS|BIG> pretty unlikly
[10:45] <nnumerals> i want to setup an external sound recognition system
[10:46] <Jck_true_> What about a basic USB soundcard?
[10:46] <nnumerals> i was told they wouldn't be near as good
[10:47] <nnumerals> i want as accurate as possible
[10:47] <ShiftPlusOne> How do you intend to use the pci-e card with a pi?
[10:47] <Jck_true_> You can buy highlevel usb sound cards...
[10:47] <RaTTuS|BIG> well they have a chance of working whereas a pci card has very little chance of working unless your an engineer
[10:47] <mjr> the Pi doesn't have any pci-e bus
[10:47] <nnumerals> k
[10:47] <nnumerals> what pi would be best for an external sound recognition box?
[10:48] <nnumerals> needs to support a sound card and microphone
[10:48] <Jck_true_> nnumerals: What outoput you want? If you just need the usb sound card on one part the Model A should be enough
[10:48] <RaTTuS|BIG> choose a usb adapter and see if it works... how are you going to be writing software for this
[10:48] <nnumerals> export it
[10:48] <nnumerals> i just need the recording
[10:49] <Jck_true_> Export it to where? how?
[10:49] <nnumerals> how would it work
[10:49] <Jck_true_> SD card? LAN? WiFi?
[10:49] <nnumerals> maybe a pi isn't the way to work
[10:49] <nnumerals> lan/wifi
[10:49] <nid0> then you need a model b
[10:49] <Jck_true_> Model B and use the lan port or the extra usb port for wifi
[10:50] <nnumerals> what's the cheapest retailer?
[10:50] <nnumerals> they still $25?
[10:50] <ShiftPlusOne> depends on where you live
[10:50] <nid0> they've never been $25
[10:50] <ShiftPlusOne> model b was never $25
[10:50] <mjr> Bs are still $35
[10:50] <ShiftPlusOne> + shipping and taxes
[10:50] <RaTTuS|BIG> $35 + taxes and shipiing
[10:50] <Jck_true_> 35$ + handling shipping etc

[10:56] <Jck_true_> (But then again i don't have a fancy iPhone/Android phone)

[11:07] <des2> I'm confused why the Software writer links it to a Raspberry Pi
[11:07] <des2> Implying that there's something special about the Pi

[11:11] <des2> Yes you can resize.

[16:48] <slysir> mrelephant.com
[16:48] <IncognitoMan> i have a spare nook color charger thats 5v 1.9a
[16:48] <IncognitoMan> would that be alright as a power source for the rpi?

[17:28] <dexta> afternoon
[17:28] <Blueness|> http://www.newsdownload.co.uk/pages/RPiHeadless.html I have an interest in this design
[17:28] <Blueness|> afternoon :)
[17:29] <Blueness|> So i am curious, can I power the raspi from just the gpio pins?
[17:29] <Blueness|> sorry if i didn't just google it but its not readily apparent if I can
[17:29] <IT_Sean> Blueness|: you can, but it is not recommended.
[17:30] <Blueness|> oh interesting
[17:30] <IT_Sean> You can supply power via the 5v pin, and ground.
[17:30] <Blueness|> ah ok I need to find that
[17:31] <mjr> just be sure you've got the pins right
[17:31] <IT_Sean> Indeed.
[17:31] <Blueness|> haha yes
[17:31] <IT_Sean> If you feed 5v into the wrong pin, you Pi goes poof.
[17:31] <Blueness|> i've had experience with that lol
[17:32] <Blueness|> ahh so the 5v and gnd is located next the gpio pins
[17:32] <Blueness|> thats what i originally meant
[17:32] <Blueness|> those can be used to power them correct?
[17:32] <Blueness|> well the pi
[17:33] <mjr> yeah they're not really gpio, just on the gpio headers
[17:33] <Blueness|> yes correct
[17:33] <Blueness|> thanks :)
[17:34] <Blueness|> i definitely want to make my pi mobile
[17:34] <mjr> "gpio" is often used here interchangeably with the "gpio header"
[17:34] * ironfroggy (~ironfrogg@ec2-50-16-218-141.compute-1.amazonaws.com) Quit (Excess Flood)

[17:34] * Pitel_IPEX (~pitel@gatekeeper.bm.ipex.cz) Quit (Ping timeout: 264 seconds)
[17:35] <Blueness|> good to know i can just power it from there
[17:35] <steve_rox> found a ebay entry for a pi thats been put into a snes case, they demanding ?500 for it , they are insane
[17:35] <mjr> know that you'll bypass the input fuse that way, though. Which can save your nerves a bit, but still.
[17:36] <Blueness|> so 6 AA batteries in series with a 7805 is adequate for powering it I assume
[17:37] <mjr> should be
[17:37] <Blueness|> i'm wondering if I should try a cellphone battery route
[17:37] <Blueness|> i dont really know if theres any advantages to it
[17:37] <Blueness|> but i have a few spare around
[17:38] <Blueness|> steve_rox: 500 euros for an snes case pi is pretty ridiculous
[17:38] <Blueness|> does it accept snes cartridges? lol
[17:38] <steve_rox> no ? not euro
[17:39] <Blueness|> is that pound
[17:39] <Blueness|> i'm a terrible american haha
[17:39] <steve_rox> apprently one the carts has had a hdd shoved into it with a usb cable comeing out
[17:39] <Blueness|> why does it need an hdd..

[17:41] <steve_rox> i have a bust sega gamegear here i was gonna try shove a pi into but its tricky

[17:41] <ShadowJK> Blueness|; for a short amount of time I'm guessing.
[17:42] <Blueness|> the game gear is pretty beefy last i remember haha
[17:42] <steve_rox> its case design takes 6AA
[17:42] <steve_rox> i did see someone on utube have one inside the case but with limited details on it

[17:44] <Blueness|> haven't done it in over a year or two
[17:44] <Blueness|> lol
[17:44] <steve_rox> i would try install a pi into a gamegear but i have limited use for the pi anyways so i dont think i need a portable one
[17:44] <Blueness|> yea i just like the charm of it
[17:44] * ivotkl (~ivan@ Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[17:44] <steve_rox> i do have some working game gears here :D

[17:45] <kkit> and a giant pile of batteries?
[17:45] <steve_rox> no
[17:45] <kkit> game gears were power hogs
[17:45] <Blueness|> If I were to power the pi with a microsd phone charger, would the 5v pins on the gpio pin side be able to power an external module device like an lcd display?
[17:45] <steve_rox> yeah
[17:45] <steve_rox> but i use rechargeables
[17:46] <Blueness|> i remember i had to get an ac adapter to stop hemmoraging batteries haha
[17:46] <steve_rox> theres allso a 9v in socket too
[17:46] <Blueness|> i remember i was too impatient for rechargeables and forgetful
[17:46] <Blueness|> and just parked myself next to a power outlet haha
[17:46] <steve_rox> i obtained a small lead acid battery which i connected into the 9v in , lasted many many hours
[17:46] <Blueness|> how do you have 'some' working game gears lol
[17:46] <Blueness|> do you own a shop or something
[17:46] <steve_rox> not that i know of
[17:47] <steve_rox> :-P

[17:47] <gordonDrogon> 6 x AA's will run a Pi for a few hours.
[17:48] <IT_Sean> Just make sure you regulate the voltage to 5v

[17:48] * dreamon_ (~dreamon@unaffiliated/dreamon) has joined #raspberrypi
[17:48] <Blueness|> wonder what the mAH comparisons are
[17:48] <gordonDrogon> more batteries = more time - regulation is the key.
[17:48] <IT_Sean> 6 AAs, unregulated, peaks at 9v, which WILL kill your pi.
[17:48] <Blueness|> yea for sure
[17:48] <steve_rox> i havent thought of any reasion to have a portable pi yet
[17:48] <gordonDrogon> mobile phone batteries (modern) are LiPo and funny voltages.
[17:48] <gordonDrogon> with funny charging requirements too.
[17:49] <steve_rox> and they explode
[17:49] <Blueness|> i like thought of SSH'ing into a tiny box
[17:49] <steve_rox> in a fireball
[17:49] <Blueness|> maybe build a robot around it lol
[17:49] <Blueness|> i bet mobile phone batteries are more sophisticated than standard ones though its just a hunch lol
[17:50] <steve_rox> no idea
[17:50] <Blueness|> its amazing how they make it juice more in such a tiny block for phones
[17:50] <gordonDrogon> I used to ssh into my nokia n900...
[17:50] <steve_rox> id rather not play with lipo batts since the various dangers
[17:50] <Blueness|> yea i heard some die hard fans rave about the n900 lol
[17:50] <Blueness|> noted.
[17:50] <gordonDrogon> they're safe enough if you have a good charger for them.
[17:51] * NIN101 (~NIN@p5DD28C7C.dip0.t-ipconnect.de) has joined #raspberrypi
[17:51] <IT_Sean> you need to be really careful charing lipo batts.
[17:51] <Blueness|> just a phone battery charger hah
[17:51] <gordonDrogon> the other trick is to monitor the output voltage and switch off when it gets to the cut-off voltage.
[17:51] <chod> gordonDrogon: was looking at your spi/i2c bits, very intresting
[17:51] <Blueness|> cheap chinese quality one... :(
[17:51] <IT_Sean> charge 'em wrong and they will get angry. And you will not like them when they are angry.
[17:51] <steve_rox> the proper chargers for lipo have computer monitoring progs in them to ballence chargeing
[17:51] <gordonDrogon> chod, yea - they're really just wrappes round what the kernel provides though - but they do make it easy.
[17:51] <Blueness|> how do you charge them wrong o.0
[17:51] <IT_Sean> ...
[17:51] <zleap> hi
[17:52] <Blueness|> i guess you can flip the polarities
[17:52] <IncognitoMan> sadly im having a hard time finding a use for my rpi besides as a xbmc machine
[17:52] <Blueness|> yea seems that way for most
[17:52] <IT_Sean> Blueness|: lipo batteries, like liIon batteries, require a somewhat careful charging curve.
[17:52] <chod> gordonDrogon: you done much more to the command line bits for i2c/spi
[17:52] <gordonDrogon> don't flip the polarities! (or cross the beams ;-)
[17:52] <steve_rox> look up on utube lipo battery explosions
[17:52] <steve_rox> your get a idea how bad they can be
[17:52] <Blueness|> a nice trickle charge would be nice for it
[17:52] <IncognitoMan> especialy now that i have a 1u server lol
[17:52] <Blueness|> just for battery life alone
[17:53] <IT_Sean> If you charge them wrong, you will end up with a chemical, electrical, and metal fire that will be very difficulty to extinguish.
[17:53] <gordonDrogon> chod, just the gertboard stuff in the gpio program, but the v2 version will have drivers for more spi & I2C chips and gpio will be expanded to use them.
[17:53] <Blueness|> well cellphone hasn't exploded yet thank god haha
[17:53] <steve_rox> lipo cells are supposed to be light weight i think
[17:53] <IT_Sean> Blueness|: that is because your mobile phone is DESIGNED to properly charge the battery.
[17:53] * chod (~chod@toy-town.demon.co.uk) Quit (Quit: leaving)
[17:53] <gordonDrogon> they're heavy weight, but since you need less of them for the same charge capacity, they can appear lighter.

[17:54] <steve_rox> ive seen iphones expand and pop their screens apart because the lipos go bad
[17:54] <Blueness|> true IT_Sean, i'll definitely take it into consideration just never had issues with my standalone battery charger for my cellphone
[17:54] <Blueness|> I'm sure i can screw it up when hooking it up to the pi though haha
[17:55] <steve_rox> charge lipo and stick a nail thu it and see what happens
[17:55] <Blueness|> I shouldn't be near things that explode tbh haha
[17:55] <steve_rox> boom whooosh fireball
[17:55] <Blueness|> I have a knack for learning the hard way
[17:56] <gordonDrogon> I watched a diver exit the water with 3rd degree burns from the lipo powered heated undersuit he was wearing - his drysuit had sprung a leak and shorted the cells...
[17:56] <steve_rox> madness
[17:56] <gordonDrogon> the battery went overboard as soon as we got him out of his suit.
[17:56] <Blueness|> what are some high capacity cheap alternatives? lol
[17:57] <gordonDrogon> there aren't any.
[17:57] <Blueness|> makes sense

[17:57] <Blueness|> ahh take that as a no
[17:57] <chod> :D just dont over charge them
[17:57] <gordonDrogon> not really. I've seen 2v cells and 6 & 12 ...

[18:16] <Blueness|> the amount i would pay for those i'd definitely tread carefully in charging it lol
[18:17] <Blueness|> though it is definitely decent
[18:17] <steve_rox> model A pi may be more suited for mobile pi
[18:17] <Blueness|> yea i regret getting a model b without the revision
[18:18] <Blueness|> but ethernet is always nice
[18:18] <Blueness|> i would definitely learn towards the samsung galaxy s3 batteries if I could though
[18:18] <Blueness|> assuming they are legit haha
[18:18] <steve_rox> i have one the first gen mdl B versions
[18:19] <Blueness|> 3x 2900 mAh batteries @ 3.7V with charger for $10.99
[18:19] <Blueness|> i think i have first gen as well
[18:19] <Blueness|> i sadly didn't do anything with it for over a year :(
[18:19] <Blueness|> other than boot up raspbian on it
[18:19] <Blueness|> had trouble finding a good display for it and forgot about it lol

[18:20] <steve_rox> i then telnetted to my router and screwed with that thu it
[18:20] <IT_Sean> steve_rox is right. A model a would be better for mobile (battery run) use.

[18:22] <IT_Sean> But, how many USB ports do you need for a mobile project?
[18:22] <steve_rox> and a hub would need more power i think
[18:22] <Blueness|> yea i definitely want a lot more plugs though
[18:22] <Blueness|> just for the sake of having it lol
[18:22] <Blueness|> i want 3 at least lol
[18:22] <Blueness|> 802.11n, keyboard, mouse
[18:22] <Blueness|> mouse optional i guess
[18:22] <IT_Sean> you only need the 802.11. You can SSH in
[18:22] <Blueness|> a mini cheesy laptop

[18:27] <steve_rox> since its clearness quality varies on res id need to change it
[18:27] <gordonDrogon> yes, if you don't need USB/Ethernet then Model A is definately the way to do it.
[18:27] <steve_rox> but i dont want to have to reboot all the time
[18:28] <Blueness|> yea ethernet i could live without
[18:28] <Blueness|> but i definitely need the usb ports
[18:28] <Blueness|> a mobile htpc almost
[18:28] <steve_rox> wonder if you could shove a non powered hub on it
[18:28] <Blueness|> would be nice
[18:29] <Blueness|> yea a hub would be nice
[18:29] <Blueness|> can never have enough usb ports imo
[18:29] <Blueness|> haha
[18:29] <IT_Sean> non-powered hub probably won't work
[18:29] <IT_Sean> you really need a powered one.
[18:29] <Blueness|> depends i guess
[18:29] <Blueness|> on what you are attaching
[18:29] <Blueness|> for keyboards fine maybe?
[18:29] <Blueness|> keyboard/ledless mouse
[18:29] <IT_Sean> I think you will find that a np-hub, and a keyboard, and a mouse might be all a mit much
[18:29] <IT_Sean> *bit
[18:30] <Blueness|> really?
[18:30] <Blueness|> interesting
[18:30] <Blueness|> 500mAH is the specs for a standard usb port
[18:30] <Blueness|> anymore would require power?
[18:30] <IT_Sean> That's what my experience has been,
[18:30] <Blueness|> *500mA
[18:30] <Blueness|> mm experience > all
[18:30] <IT_Sean> You can quote specs all day long. They really mean toss all when it comes to the pi.
[18:30] <Blueness|> I haven't really tinkered too much in electronics to really say much haha
[18:31] <steve_rox> maybe i should give it a go sometime
[18:31] <Blueness|> ok sorry to bring it up again but anyone wanna give an opinon on http://www.ebay.com/itm/3-x-2900mAh-battery-USB-Charger-For-Samsung-Galaxy-S-3-III-i535-T999-L710-i9300-/390558748490?pt=PDA_Accessories&hash=item5aef1d8f4a
[18:31] <Blueness|> as a power source
[18:32] <Blueness|> on the small chance it is legit
[18:32] <Blueness|> and i have a voltage regulator ready
[18:32] <Blueness|> maybe two in series
[18:32] <Blueness|> would that be a viable option to power a pi?

[18:33] <Blueness|> the batteries for sure though
[18:33] <Blueness|> the charger just so it won't explode on me

[18:34] <Blueness|> yea i know what you mean gordonDrogon
[18:34] <Blueness|> the mAH is astounding comparing it to the 18500 you mentioned earlier
[18:34] <gordonDrogon> Blueness|, however he has a very large positive feedback, so ...
[18:35] <Blueness|> assuming it were stock from a nice manufacturer would it be a viable option to power a pi?
[18:35] <gordonDrogon> standard 3.7v LiPo cells. You'll need a buck converter to get 5v or run 2 is series with an SMPS 5v regulator
[18:35] <Blueness|> are there things like amps i haven't taken into consideration
[18:35] <Blueness|> yea definitely going regulator route
[18:36] <Blueness|> two in series
[18:36] <gordonDrogon> however don't let them get to below 3v on the discharge.
[18:36] <gordonDrogon> so you need to monitor that.
[18:36] <Blueness|> yea I need to learn how to make a battery indicator
[18:36] <Blueness|> just lots of little things
[18:37] <Blueness|> 5800mAh would put the batteries close to tablet range
[18:37] <Blueness|> which is pretty neat
[18:37] <Blueness|> for two tiny batteries
[18:37] <steve_rox> sounds complicated to just use a mobile batt
[18:37] <Blueness|> how so?
[18:37] <gordonDrogon> 2900mAh
[18:37] <steve_rox> cos i sed so :-)
[18:38] <Blueness|> i'm hoping it just as simple as a wire to +/- on the regulator terminals lol
[18:38] <Blueness|> *it's
[18:38] <Blueness|> maybe have a tiny heatsink grille with thermal paste haha
[18:38] <gordonDrogon> you should pu a decoupling capacitor or 2 on the regulator. check the specifications
[18:38] <gordonDrogon> if it needs a heatsink you're using the wrong regulator. use an SMPS one.
[18:38] <Blueness|> hmm

[18:39] <Blueness|> thanks
[18:39] <Blueness|> http://www.newsdownload.co.uk/pages/RPiHeadless.html this is just sort of whats fueling my interest atm
[18:40] <gordonDrogon> I'd be tempted to use something like that with all 3 batteries connected together.
[18:40] <Blueness|> he uses a similar TSR 1-2450
[18:40] <gordonDrogon> However if you're doing that then you need to charge them together & make sure they're balanced correctly.
[18:40] <Blueness|> 3 batteries sounds rough lol
[18:40] <Blueness|> 9v is a lot to dissipate
[18:40] <Blueness|> actually probably not

[18:41] <gordonDrogon> that TSR part is more or less the same part on the farnell site I mentioned.
[18:42] <Blueness|> oh neat
[18:42] <Blueness|> yea the efficiency of switched mode is amazing
[18:42] <Blueness|> i dont know why its so much better than plain old 7805's
[18:42] <gordonDrogon> 3 x 3.7 = 11.1v - going via those types of regulators is fine - it's the old fashioed LM7805's that get HOT and waste heat.
[18:42] <Blueness|> yea
[18:42] <Blueness|> i'm used to 7805's haha
[18:43] <Blueness|> i made my own 5v power supply once
[18:43] <Blueness|> it got hot pretty quick
[18:43] <gordonDrogon> SMPS = Switched Mode Power Supply. They are DC to DC convertors with little transformers inside. much more efficient, so don't get hot.
[18:43] <Blueness|> though i did put ALOT of load o it lol
[18:43] <Blueness|> *on
[18:43] <gordonDrogon> yea, you need a heatsink for over 500mA on a 7805.
[18:43] <Blueness|> my circuits classed had a power supply building project where the professor would stick on a 10 ohm load and see who's designed fared the best
[18:44] <Blueness|> ok on the heatsink comment
[18:45] <wroberts1> non-isolated switching converters only need inductor
[18:45] <wroberts1> and input and output capicitors
[18:45] <Blueness|> hmm never used an inductor
[18:47] <Blueness|> is the inductor meant to just draw the excess voltage?
[18:47] <Blueness|> with the caps to just smooth it out?
[18:48] <gordonDrogon> no.
[18:48] <wroberts1> wont function at all without those capacitors
[18:48] <gordonDrogon> it's acting as an oscillator/transformer.
[18:48] <Grievre> gordonDrogon: er, they don't necessarily have transformers unless they're isolating
[18:48] <Blueness|> hmm ok i'm slightly lost but i can google it haha
[18:48] <gordonDrogon> maybe talking about different things - regulators vs. mains PSUs?
[18:49] <pksato> have a lots of cheap (~$5) dc-dc converters on market.
[18:49] <gordonDrogon> there are lots on ebay, but not a lot I've seen the same size as a 7805.
[18:49] <Blueness|> hmm dc-dc sounds nice...
[18:49] <Blueness|> wait its the same thing as what we've been talking about lol
[18:49] <gordonDrogon> Blueness|, that's what that link on the Farnell site is to - and the RS one on that headless project.
[18:50] <Blueness|> yea just realized
[18:50] <pksato> final module are small that heatsink need to 78xx
[18:50] <Grievre> gordonDrogon: Hmm, in fact, a buck regulator can be implemented without an inductor even
[18:51] <wroberts1> this is 3A out with 5.5v to 24v in http://www.semtech.com/images/product/diagram1/sc410-bd.gif
[18:51] <Blueness|> i'm not too confident in soldering so i would prefer something super simple haha
[18:51] <mjr> I recall there was some mini wifi stick that'd get enough power through the pi to work, what was it?
[18:52] <Blueness|> yea im interested in a wifi stick as well
[18:52] <Blueness|> the really tiny ones seem to work fine
[18:52] <Blueness|> wroberts1: what am i looking at lol sorry
[18:53] <Blueness|> hmm a step-down regulator
[18:53] <Blueness|> up to 3A output sounds nice but sounds like overkill
[18:54] <mjr> ah, http://elinux.org/RPi_VerifiedPeripherals#USB_Wi-Fi_Adapters says at least ISG-1507N Mini USB would work (at least for the writer) directly plugged in
[18:54] <gordonDrogon> Grievre, yea - I remember using one to do rs232 stuff with a couple of caps. one of the max... chips IIRC.

[19:15] <Blueness|> yea theres a list of viable non-powered wifi dongles
[19:15] <Xeph> yoyomoony: That's why I think the card itself might be broken - I search for the proper way to check that, as badblocks passed w/o error. I had several installations/partitions on the card now, and at some point some binaries won't be loaded during boot, files are currupt etc.

[19:16] <Xeph> Nah, I did completely reformat the partition.
[19:16] <Blueness|> I've done some suspicious things like partition off a drive in hopes of isolating the bad blocks and avoiding that partition but its only a temporary time wasting solution haha
[19:17] <Blueness|> yoyomoony, isn't that just saying get a new card haha
[19:17] <Xeph> I don't need the data??? But I dont want to set the raspberry up again and again, just because I dont see why the partition breaks every time.

[20:16] <IT_Sean> advisor: the audio jack on the pi is stereo, but it is of terribly poor quality
[20:16] <dreamreal> gordonDrogon: I'm using Wire from arduino.cc, the adafruit mcp23008 is even slower

[20:16] <gordonDrogon> dreamreal, oh hang on - 0.4ms per read - that's about right....
[20:16] <gordonDrogon> I read it was 0.4s per read initially.
[20:17] <dreamreal> oh, no :)
[20:17] <advisor> IT_Sean: i have noticed the quality .. but i only get sound on one speaker, and i believe i have read the "mono" somewhere .. do you know where i could check ?
[20:17] <dreamreal> it's 0.45-0.47ms per 8-bit read
[20:17] <advisor> (changing cable while waiting for reply)
[20:17] <gordonDrogon> I reckoned 4000/sec - 1/4000 = 0.25ms
[20:17] <advisor> IT_Sean: si. it was teh cable
[20:17] <advisor> thank you for clarifying this
[20:18] <Datalink-M> bolivar, odd, I'll look into it when I get home :/
[20:18] <gordonDrogon> maybe it sends out more bytes - I'd really have to look at the protocol - I was assuming i2c address (8 bits), register (8 bits) then a read of the data (8 bits)
[20:18] <bolivar> datalink-m: thanks anyway for your help
[20:18] <Datalink-M> Half hour till then
[20:18] <ladoga> bolivar what does uname -r say?
[20:18] <dreamreal> gordonDrogon: no, that's right: write address, 0x09, then read 8 bites
[20:18] <dreamreal> bits, sorry

[20:19] <bolivar> ladoga: 3.2.27+
[20:19] <gordonDrogon> so 24 bits at 100,000 bits/sec is 0.24mS
[20:20] <gordonDrogon> so if it's taking 20x that, then it doues seem like something is wrong..
[20:20] <ladoga> i thought it might be looking modules.dep.bin from wrong place

[20:39] <sheldor_> actually, i found the gamelist.xml for roms
[20:39] <sheldor_> but i want to add a standalone game (quake3)
[20:39] <Blueness|> maybe manually edit that
[20:39] <sheldor_> in the dukenukem section
[20:39] <ladoga> bolivar: maybe it would be created by running depmod -a ?

[20:48] <Blueness|> good to hear sheldor_ :)
[20:48] <sheldor_> Blueness|: i just copied the doom rom section and set the COMMAND= to the quake3 binary
[20:48] <sheldor_> now i have 2 dooms in emulationstation
[20:48] <sheldor_> but one starts quake3
[20:48] <Blueness|> weird
[20:49] <sheldor_> in the es_systems.cfg
[20:49] <Blueness|> probably can edit the names somewhere
[20:49] <sheldor_> it isnt weird though, it just expects a rom
[20:49] <sheldor_> and i copied the doom rom for the artwork/text etc
[20:49] <sheldor_> no idea how to create a "rom" though
[20:50] <sheldor_> i will investigate deeper into the directory tree
[20:50] <sheldor_> oh i found a theme.xml :)
[20:50] <sheldor_> looks promising
[20:50] <Blueness|> https://github.com/petrockblog/RetroPie-Setup/wiki/EmulationStation
[20:51] <Blueness|> kinda weird theres no automated way to do it
[20:51] <sheldor_> agreed Blueness|
[20:51] <sheldor_> let me check that link
[20:52] <sheldor_> yeah been there
[20:52] <Blueness|> yea just seems manual editing of two files
[20:52] <Blueness|> but i never tried it before
[20:52] <kkit> sounds about right for *nix software
[20:52] <sheldor_> actually the .wad file seems to contain the artwork and stuff
[20:52] <sheldor_> but no idea what format that is
[20:53] <Blueness|> im new *nix haha
[20:53] <Blueness|> *new to
[20:53] <kkit> it's the doom data format
[20:53] <sheldor_> i found the logo.png though :)
[20:53] <sheldor_> let me chang that
[20:53] <kkit> unwad will extract it
[20:54] <sheldor_> its in ~/.emulationstation/themes/<rom>_art/ btw
[20:54] <sheldor_> ah thanks kkit
[20:55] <kkit> Blueness|, get used to editing text files then :)
[20:55] <Blueness|> in vim :(

[20:57] <kkit> vimtutor is how i learned :)
[20:57] <Blueness|> do people use nano now?

[20:57] <Blueness|> or is vim still the champ
[20:57] <kkit> nano is far less capable
[20:57] <Blueness|> i guess it depends on competency lol
[20:57] <Blueness|> nano was more intuitive at least
[20:58] <kkit> it's fine for light text editing, but that's it

[23:05] <zleap> wow that looks complex
[23:05] <gordonDrogon> that's a mcp23S17 (spi, middle, left), mcp23017 (i2c, middle right) feeding into a paid of 74HC595's driving 10 LEDs.
[23:06] <zleap> ah
[23:06] <gordonDrogon> the 595 shift registers get data from the Pi's own GPIO, clock from the 23S17 and latch from the 23017.
[23:06] <zleap> i have a led bar thing somewhere
[23:06] <gordonDrogon> it's somewhat sub-optimal, but it's working well as a test of wiringPi v2.
[23:06] <zleap> ohh

[23:07] <gordonDrogon> things I learned putting that together: an mcp23x17 can short-circuit the 3.3v supply enough to reboot the Pi... (without destroying itself, although they do get hot)

[23:10] <three14> gordonDrogon, i haven't used an 595s with the Pi yet, but can't you get clock and latch from the Pi as well? I guess what I'm really asking is why the need for the mcp23S17 and mcp23017?
[23:10] <zleap> yummy
[23:11] <three14> or are you just showing that you can control the 595s with i2c/spi?
[23:11] <gordonDrogon> three14, absolutely - see http://wiringpi.com/extensions/shift-register-74x595/

[23:12] <gordonDrogon> three14, what I'm doing here is testing wiringPi v2 - which allows extending the digitalWrite(), digitalRead(), etc. functions with any old GPIO extender chip - even 595's.

[23:16] <three14> on the arduino i use 595s to free up pins for 16x2 lcds, what's involved to make that work with the Pi as well?
[23:17] <gordonDrogon> but it's nice to be able to digitalWrite() a single pin in a 595 shift register without your main code doing all that bit banging! ('cos I've done it for you ;-)
[23:17] * teepee (~quassel@p4FFFD69E.dip.t-dialin.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[23:17] <three14> iirc, the lib i used to use was ShiftLCD on Arduino.
[23:17] <gordonDrogon> three14, you'll need 2 x 595's to give you 16 bit outputs - then initialise them and just digitalWrite () the bits.
[23:18] <gordonDrogon> three14, once I've tried it, you will be able to use my lcd driver with them too.
[23:18] <gordonDrogon> so if you tell wiringPi you have the SR's at pin base 100, then initialise the LCD library with those pins and off you go.
[23:19] * Zuph (~bluyster@74-143-160-220.static.insightbb.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[23:19] <three14> just like that..
[23:19] <three14> i'm impressed.
[23:20] <gordonDrogon> well - I've just reduced everything to digitalWrite() digitalRead(), etc.
[23:20] <gordonDrogon> you 'register' a new driver and give it a pin-base and off it goes.

[23:20] <gordonDrogon> in http://unicorn.drogon.net/stress.c the pin bases are just 123, 456 and 789 - any old number will work as long as thy don't overlap.
