[7:18] <SteveThing> Zhaofeng_Li: shouldn't that be done automatically when the wlan0 iface comes up? or eth0 goes down?
[7:19] <Zhaofeng_Li> SteveThing, mime doesn't do that~
[7:19] <Triffid_Hunter> Arthur_N: see what cat /proc/partitions says about your card.. are you dding to the disk or a partition?
[7:19] <Arthur_N> to the disk
[7:20] <SteveThing> hmm, that's going to be problematic...
[7:21] <Triffid_Hunter> SteveThing: are both the wireless and the ethernet connected to the same network?
[7:21] <SteveThing> yes
[7:21] <SteveThing> for now
[7:21] <Triffid_Hunter> SteveThing: then you want to bridge them
[7:21] <Arthur_N> Triffid_Hunter: cat /proc/partitions doesn't list any partitions for it, as the card is unmounted, and I dd to /dev/sdb and not not /dev/sdb1
[7:21] <Triffid_Hunter> SteveThing: I have my laptop set up with wired and wireless bridged, is awesome :)
[7:21] <SteveThing> why would i bridge them?
[7:22] <Triffid_Hunter> SteveThing: so that the kernel routing table doesn't get confused. also it means you can unplug the ethernet and it automatically fails over to wireless without breaking any connections, then fails back over to ethernet when the carrier reappears
[7:23] <Triffid_Hunter> Arthur_N: umm doesn't need to be mounted to see partitions.. in fact, you need to be able to see the partitions before you can mount them!
[7:23] <SteveThing> it's as if my wlan0 iface is not adding a default gateway automatically like eth0 does... i know my DHCP server is set to advertise itself as the gw
[7:23] <Triffid_Hunter> Arthur_N: it should tell you how many 1k blocks are available on the disk at least

[7:24] <Triffid_Hunter> SteveThing: yeah routing tables get a bit strange if you have two gateways in the same netmask on two different interfaces

[7:24] <Triffid_Hunter> SteveThing: hm I may have used the wrong word, I have mine bonded, not bridged
[7:24] <SteveThing> meh, just thought linux was smart enough to add one gw for each iface
[7:24] <Triffid_Hunter> Arthur_N: time to check dmesg,
[7:25] <Triffid_Hunter> SteveThing: it should be, I consider the aberrant behaviour to be a bug of some kind
[7:25] <SteveThing> time to throw a third iface into the mix and see what happens :P
[7:25] <Triffid_Hunter> SteveThing: thing is, having two interfaces with same ip and netmask makes the routing decisions non-deterministic
[7:26] <Triffid_Hunter> sure there's the metric for choosing an interface for new connections but other stuff can get hairy
[7:26] <Triffid_Hunter> bonding sorts it out nicely
[7:26] <SteveThing> rofl, just crashed my pi

[7:27] <Triffid_Hunter> gets to the broadcom driver and completely loses its shit
[7:27] <SteveThing> my goal is to set this up as a firewall with a wifi guest hotspot
[7:27] <SteveThing> so, bonding isn't that critical
[7:28] <SteveThing> good to know tho, thank you :P
[7:28] <Triffid_Hunter> SteveThing: ah so you'll run the wifi in master mode.. yeah don't want bonding for that
[7:29] <SteveThing> that's wierd, i wonder why it rebooted when i plugged in the third iface...
[7:29] <Triffid_Hunter> power glitch
[7:29] <Triffid_Hunter> the whole usb power infrastructure on the pi is poor at best
[7:30] <SteveThing> ah, so if i were using a powered hub, it might not be an issue?

[7:42] <SteveThing> so if I use a dedicated PSU for my Pi and then plug a powered hub into one of the onboard usb ports, the hug could feed power back through that power?
[7:42] <SteveThing> hub*
[7:43] <Triffid_Hunter> SteveThing: yep, should be fine though since they're both set to the same voltage
[7:43] <Triffid_Hunter> one of them will provide most of the power and the other one will just sit there idling until/unless there's a heavy load
[7:44] <SteveThing> just seems dangerous... if I were to power the pi with that hub instead, i would imagine bad things could happen
[7:45] <Triffid_Hunter> SteveThing: rev1 board had 140mA fuses on the usb ports.. they will nuisance trip if you backpower it
[7:46] <SteveThing> so a set of diodes isn't required from the pi usb port to the hub?

[7:54] <Grievar> it only happens when I have things connected to the I2C pins
[7:54] <Grievar> and even then it's kind of random
[7:55] <plugwash> a properly behaved powered hub should not backfeed power but in practice many hubs do :/
[7:56] * bolivar (~max@ Quit (Quit: bolivar)
[7:56] <plugwash> I doubt backfeeding will cause any problems in practice though, most power supplies are reasonablly tolerant of such things (typically they only have output drivers to source current not sink it so they won't fight each other)

[8:12] <Grievar> how difficult would it be to write an audio driver that sits on top of SPI? I'm making a thingy with an FPGA that will be generating audio and I'd like it to appear as an audio source in linux
[8:12] <Grievar> without having to solder wires to the I2S pins
[8:13] * Hydra (~Hydra@AGrenoble-652-1-337-79.w82-122.abo.wanadoo.fr) has joined #raspberrypi
[8:13] * SteveThing (~SteveThin@ has left #raspberrypi
[8:14] <plugwash> I'm guessing no easier or harder than writing any other audio driver for linux, the linux kernel has a SPI driver and a concept of a SPI bus and devices already.
[8:14] <plugwash> but I don't know how hard writing linux drivers in general is
[8:16] * mike_t (~mike@ Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[8:20] <Triffid_Hunter> Grievar: last time I checked, I2S is simply SPI with a specific data protocol
[8:24] <Grievar> Triffid_Hunter: Okay?
[8:24] <Grievar> Triffid_Hunter: still have to write the driver....
[8:25] <Grievar> unless one already exists
[8:25] * Platz (~Platz@unaffiliated/platz) Quit (Quit: leaving)
[8:26] <plugwash> the two certainly share some characteristics but I wouldn't really call I2S "SPI with a specific data protocol"
[8:26] * DenBeiren1 (~Denbeiren@ has joined #raspberrypi
[8:26] <Grievar> For one, I2S generally requires a continuous stream of data
[8:26] <Grievar> rather than individual words spaced however far apart
[8:26] <Grievar> thus there will have to be a fifo in there at some point to bridge SPI<->I2S
[8:27] <Grievar> also I2S generally requires three lines: data, bit clock and word clock
[8:27] * ekodan (~ekodan@unaffiliated/ekodan) has joined #raspberrypi
[8:28] <Triffid_Hunter> Grievar: you mean MOSI, SCK and CS?
[8:28] <Triffid_Hunter> and yes, I view the timing constraints as part of the protocol
[8:28] <Grievar> Triffid_Hunter: okay I get your point but the fact remains that we need to write a driver
[8:28] <Grievar> nothing you've said changes that
[8:29] <Grievar> unless someone has already written a driver for this
[8:29] <plugwash> Triffid_Hunter, without timing constraints a serial communication system is nothing
[8:29] <plugwash> or well not exactly timing constraints but constraints on how the signals change in relation to each other
[8:29] * ekodan (~ekodan@unaffiliated/ekodan) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[8:30] <plugwash> in particular i2s transferrs data in both states of the word clock while SPI only transfers data in one state of the chip select
[8:30] <Triffid_Hunter> Grievar: the tricksy part is, last time I checked the SPI drivers are set up for word-based transfers. you need DMA to drive I2S properly due to the timing constraints
[8:30] * pretty_function (~sigBART@ has joined #raspberrypi
[8:31] <Grievar> Triffid_Hunter: You're describing how to solve a different problem than the one I'm dealing with
[8:31] <Grievar> Triffid_Hunter: the device I'm talking to is something I'm writing on an FPGA, I can invent my own protocol to go on top of SPI
[8:32] <plugwash> and doing so is likely considerablly easier than trying to force a perhipheral designed for SPI to do I2S
[8:32] <Grievar> er, vice-versa
[8:33] <Triffid_Hunter> Grievar: an FPGA eh? well you need an SPI-like output block and DMA, then tell the kernel it's I2S
[8:33] * zproc (~zproc@laf31-6-82-241-3-109.fbx.proxad.net) Quit (Quit: zproc)
[8:34] <Grievar> Triffid_Hunter: ?!
[8:34] <Grievar> "tell the kernel it's I2S"?
[8:34] <Grievar> Why would I2S ever get involved
[8:35] * ekodan (~ekodan@unaffiliated/ekodan) has joined #raspberrypi
[8:36] <Triffid_Hunter> Grievar: because it's audio. I2S and SPI are necessarily treated very differently by the kernel. the primary difference is the timing constraints.. SPI can be handled whenever the kernel feels like it whereas I2S needs specific timing
[8:37] * Grievar scratches his head
[8:37] <Grievar> But my FPGA has a giant buffer built in
[8:37] <Grievar> the kernel can essentially fetch the incoming audio in big blocks infrequently

[8:40] * darkowlzz (~darkowlzz@ Quit (Ping timeout: 264 seconds)
[8:42] <plugwash> indeed so you just need to look for some documentation on the SPI subsystem and the audio subsystem in the linux kernel and work out how to write a driver that ties into both
[8:42] <Grievar> Triffid_Hunter: So... my question was really "how hard is it to write a linux audio driver" in general I guess
[8:42] <Grievar> ok
[8:42] <Triffid_Hunter> Grievar: ah, I have no idea, although I suspect it can't be that hard if it's fairly simple
[8:42] <Grievar> Well documentation is often written in a suboptimal manner for quickly ascertaining this kind of information so I was wondering if anyone had already researched this

[8:47] <topias> Grievar: I've tried both. RPi is freezing totally, only the red light will stay on.
[8:48] <Grievar> topias: so it's not kernel panicking? it's just hardlocking?

[9:59] <topias> Grievar: I just start RPi without GUI. It worked almost 5 minutes in console. I just wait by doing nothing. Then suddenly it just went down. Should RPi use SD card in console when user is doing nothing? Can I eliminate SD problem?
[10:02] <Xark> topias: In general, yes, Linux will access the disk at seemingly random times. Even if you aren't doing anything, there are various system processes that may access the disk in the background.

[12:20] <gordonDrogon> I'm going to do a 8x8 'life' simulation.
[12:20] <gordonDrogon> I have one of those 8x8 LED arrays...
[12:20] <gordonDrogon> inspired by Amy Mather ..
[12:20] <mervaka> gordonDrogon: make an led cube :)
[12:20] <gordonDrogon> mervaka, I have considered it!
[12:21] <mervaka> coffe: how savvy are ypu with electronics?
[12:21] <mervaka> gordonDrogon: got a friend making one for his project
[12:21] <mervaka> major uni project*
[12:22] <gordonDrogon> mervaka, I was looking at a 8x8x8 x3 cube - but that's a lot of RGB LEDs and a lot of wiring!

[12:23] <mervaka> lol
[12:23] <coffe> sorry brb
[12:23] <mervaka> i mean besides tech
[12:24] <gordonDrogon> mervaka, at 80p per LED it's over ?400 for just the LEDs alone )-:

[12:26] <gordonDrogon> a mere ?261 worth of LEDs...
[12:27] * gordonDrogon sighs.
[12:27] <mervaka> lol
[12:27] <mervaka> go smaller.
[12:27] <mervaka> then make it modular
[12:27] <gordonDrogon> nah. if you're going to do something, then ...
[12:28] <mervaka> ie, make a smaller investment, then get it working
[12:28] <mervaka> THEN go whole hog :)
[12:28] <gordonDrogon> 4x4x4 x3 ...
[12:28] <Triffid_Hunter> gordonDrogon: SMD RGB leds should be way cheaper, and no more difficult to solder into a matrix
[12:28] <gordonDrogon> Triffid_Hunter, sure, not not as pretty..
[12:29] <mervaka> would be interesting to set them onto layers of a transparent pcb..
[12:29] <mervaka> into*
[12:29] <gordonDrogon> I guess I could just do it with single colour LEDs.
[12:30] <Triffid_Hunter> mervaka: interestingly, was reading just a couple of days ago a tutorial on making glass PCBs.. basically glue copper foil to heat treated glass and proceed as normal
[12:30] <mervaka> heh
[12:31] <mervaka> makes sense.
[12:31] <mervaka> although you'd need that photosensitive stuff too
[12:31] <mervaka> if you were doing lithography
[12:32] <Triffid_Hunter> mervaka: toner transfer and/or permanent marker works

[15:48] <hays> ShiftPlusOne: lol. :)
[15:48] <hays> so the projector would need to be able to split off the audio to a sound system
[15:48] <mjr> usb sticks may be more resource intensive than the hdmi audio though, if one believes what one's heard

[15:50] <ShiftPlusOne> well, I am exagerating for effect, heh.

[16:38] <sinni800> which is an ultra shame
[16:38] <chod> not tried it on a fedora box
[16:38] <ShiftPlusOne> pretty sure you're not using rpi-update properly
[16:38] <sinni800> ShiftPlusOne: as in?
[16:38] <chod> do you need fedora ?
[16:38] <sinni800> chod: ... no
[16:38] <TomWij> You can even run omxplayer on Gentoo on RPi without much trouble, so any argumentation about a certain distro not being able to run it is moot.
[16:39] <ShiftPlusOne> fedora used to be the favoured os... a very long time ago. Now it's raspbian. Fedora was removed from the download page even.
[16:39] <sinni800> TomWij: finally
[16:39] <sinni800> seems like its like that because some nice debian advocates pushed everything for debian only?
[16:39] <ShiftPlusOne> sinni800, did you run rpi-update and restart without trying to modify any of the files manually or using yum afterwards?
[16:40] <sinni800> ShiftPlusOne: this was the first thing i did before even using yum
[16:40] <sinni800> but it didnt work, so i started playing
[16:40] <ShiftPlusOne> yes, did you run rpi-update AFTER using yum?
[16:40] <ShiftPlusOne> ah ok
[16:40] <sinni800> i ran it again afterwards
[16:40] <ShiftPlusOne> got it
[16:40] <TomWij> sinni800: driver says min 3, library is only 2, so you need to upgrade the VC libraries.

[16:43] <ShiftPlusOne> Why do the fedora users think there is a conspiracy against it?
[16:43] <chod> there probably is :D
[16:43] <chupacabra> because thats the way debianistas do things

[16:46] <sinni800> not ... ALL of them
[16:46] <ShiftPlusOne> they develop on next and throw commits from there onto the main branch so it looks like the main branch is newer, since it was updated last.
[16:46] <sinni800> bwahahaha
[16:46] <sinni800> i see
[16:46] <TomWij> sinni800: Though, maybe the next branch has a higher lib version whereas the master branch just kept on applying patches in LTS style.

[17:04] <chupacabra> i never saw it on fedora
[17:04] <TomWij> So, first think to check is if the tools in /opt/vc work.

[19:34] <aaa801> gordonDrogon, i found this http://www.sodnpoo.com/posts.xml/mega_mega_reader.xml it seems simple enouth to do, but the lack of io pins might be a issue
[19:34] <gordonDrogon> mcp23017 or mcp23s17 GPIO expanders. supported natively by wiringPi v2.

[19:35] <aaa801> nice
[19:35] <aaa801> how much those things?
[19:36] <gordonDrogon> about ?1 each for the chips.
[19:36] <aaa801> Do i need to make a board?

[19:37] <aaa801> mhm, my first time actualy interfacing with io stuff

[19:49] <gordonDrogon> Toothpick, ok- good luck with Gentoo then!
[19:49] <Toothpick> lol
[19:49] <Toothpick> but i don't think the firmware even works
[19:50] <aaa801> gordonDrogon, can i hook 3 of these directly to the header or do i have to chain em ?

[19:52] <aaa801> does it have 2 holes in it ?
[19:52] <eggy> my r1 board has a black jack, r3 board with 512 has blue
[19:52] <Toothpick> maybe it is because i did not pass "rootfstype=ext4" in cmdline.txt ?

[20:14] <dlynes> mjr, so how do you tell the rpi to output 5v instead of 3.3v?
[20:14] <mjr> (can also be used for powering the pi instead)
[20:15] * Datalink|Elsewhe is now known as Datalink
[20:15] <mjr> you don't. There's only the 5v power pin on the header, all the actual io pins are 3.3v period.

[20:22] <gordonDrogon> the 5v on the header can feed 5v to your own peripherals - but you can also use it to feed 5v into the Pi if you know what you're doing.
[20:23] <aaa801> some serial interfaces need 5v for powering up the chip

[21:07] <gordonDrogon> hi
[21:07] <mjr> there's no 5v regulation, it's a direct feed from pi's input (well, direct sans the polyfuse)
[21:07] <gordonDrogon> dlynes, yes, it's off the Pi's 5v supply after the polyfuse.
[21:08] <aaa801> gordonDrogon, when these parts arive you know ima be picking your brain about hooking em up right :D, got any recommended reading on using those chips ?
[21:08] <Toothpick> is there a reset button on the pi ?
[21:08] <aaa801> and wiring pi in general
[21:08] <gordonDrogon> aaa801, the new wiringPi site :)
[21:08] <aaa801> Toothpick, yes, but its not a button , its two pins
[21:09] <gordonDrogon> aaa801, e.g. http://wiringpi.com/extensions/i2c-mcp23008-mcp23017/
[21:09] <Toothpick> oh, so the fastest way to reboot is to replug the usb powering?
[21:09] <gordonDrogon> Toothpick, you can short the 3.3v to ground, but that's sort of not recommended.
[21:09] <dlynes> gordonDrogon, ok, so the voltage from the usb is also 5v, I surmise, and so I'm guessing the current from the 5v is not reliable enough to run a charging cable, or anything like that
[21:09] <gordonDrogon> or the 5v.
[21:09] <Toothpick> ah i wouldn't do that
[21:10] <aaa801> gordon whats up with your example code, looks like tabs got replaced with ? ? ?
[21:10] <mjr> dlynes, charging from the gpio header's 5v line? certainly not, unless you're charging something really small/really slowly
[21:10] <gordonDrogon> dlynes, thre is about 300mA 'spare' on the Pi's +5v supply - depending on what else you have plugged into it (and how good your PSU is)
[21:10] <dlynes> Toothpick, on v2, I believe there's pinouts for a reset switch
[21:10] <gordonDrogon> I've used my Pi to charge my DSO quad oscilloscope.
[21:10] <aaa801> there are however, no pins connected to these

[21:12] <aaa801> gordonDrogon, with linking those chips, is connecting a extra pair of wires from the previous chip into the next ?
[21:13] <gordonDrogon> aaa801, if it's I2C then yes. you connect one after the other and power them all from the Pi's 3.3v supply.
[21:13] <gordonDrogon> although you can use the 5v supply, but people frown at that for some reason.
[21:13] <aaa801> ok, and in code, will that just continue the pin numbers or will that require some extra code to utilize ?
[21:14] <gordonDrogon> aaa801, just more pin numbers - each mcp23017 gets a 'base' and it has 16 pins.
[21:14] <gordonDrogon> so you can use whatever base you like above 64.

[21:16] <gordonDrogon> not an addressable one. it's I2C.
[21:17] <gordonDrogon> I2C is the communications bus. The chip then has 16 pins that you can use.
[21:17] <aaa801> Aha ok,
[21:17] <aaa801> also the dump code seems to treat the pins as a serial connection
[21:17] <aaa801> will that be fine ?

[21:19] <aaa801> should be fun, considering ive never worked with C
[21:19] <aaa801> :D
[21:19] <gordonDrogon> you will have to adapt that program... but it will mostly work, or serve as the basis of your own.
[21:19] <aaa801> Ok
[21:19] <aaa801> i ordered 3 of those chips and a good size breadboard and a pack of 70 jumpers
[21:20] <aaa801> might need to go grab some more jumper cables from my local maplin
[21:20] <aaa801> got them from hobbytronics
[21:24] <aaa801> DOH
[21:25] <aaa801> gordonDrogon, how do i get the dam gpio pins hooked up from the rpi to the breadboard :3?
[21:25] <gordonDrogon> aaa801, you need power & ground and the 2 I2C pins.
[21:25] <aaa801> nono i mean
[21:25] <aaa801> physicaly
[21:25] <aaa801> i need a female to male thing right
[21:26] <aaa801> female to male jumper
[21:26] <aaa801> mhm i think i have some of those knocking around here anyway =/
[21:27] <gordonDrogon> aaa801, this photo: http://wiringpi.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/stressTest.jpg <- this chip on the right is mcp23017 - the 2 red wires are the I2C wires to the Pi.
[21:27] <aaa801> aha ok
[21:27] <aaa801> i think the cartridge needs a 5v input too
[21:27] <scummos> that looks rather cably
[21:27] <scummos> what does it do?
[21:27] <aaa801> can i just grab that from the other power pin?
[21:27] <gordonDrogon> scummos, it's a test rig for wiringPi.
[21:28] <scummos> yes the pi has a 5V output
[21:28] <gordonDrogon> scummos, full page: http://wiringpi.com/about/testing-wiringpi-v2/

[21:28] <gordonDrogon> that was a 'stress test' of sorts.
[21:28] <scummos> ah, for SPI/i2c, I see ;)
[21:28] <scummos> yes, alright
[21:28] <scummos> I was thinking about doing microcontroller unit tests with the pi
[21:29] <scummos> like, program it, and then put the uC output to the pi's GPIOs and check the states

[22:10] <ryanteck> nbookham well there isn't an API or method coded on Rastrack at all meaning they can't
[22:10] <ryanteck> On the other side I don't know enough bash for me to program it into the raspi-config

[23:06] <ryanteck> ivotkl you will likely have to compile it from source
[23:06] <ryanteck> but out of them two armel has 100% more chance than i386
[23:06] <ryanteck> as the pi is an ARM chip not a x86 or x64 one

[23:28] <netman87> yeah they seems to be pretty neat. its just price to get it. almost 200eur is little bit over what i could easily pay for "hobby device"
[23:28] <dRbiG> hmm, yes it's over that
[23:28] <bacteu> dRbiG: no it is not, speaking is a very good way to warn
[23:28] <ReggieUK> tbh we get this everytime we do something, whether we warn in PM, do it directly on channel etc. it's 50/50 as to whether someone wants to be a net warrior or not
[23:29] <netman87> kick is really bad in manners. give kick & ban or warn -> kick -> ban
[23:29] <mjr> would you consider it a warning if you were thrown out of a bar?

[23:33] <dRbiG> more relevant question: anyone doing torrent downloading? the technical part is having ethernet and mass storage on the same usb bus
[23:33] <netman87> actually word i used doesnt seem to be foul language in my option.
[23:34] <dRbiG> netman87: quit whining
[23:34] <aaa801> well its not your opinion that matters, :P
[23:34] <dRbiG> netman87: you're back, the definition of 'foul' is as precise as that of 'fair'
[23:34] <netman87> but yeah it should have readed topic and gone with different word.
[23:34] <TomWij> There's no reason to bother, if someone puts himself in a bad daylight and neglects any rules and warnings he has to live up with the consequences; no matter how light or hard they are...

[23:38] <bacteu> dRbiG: last time I checked the usb driver wasn't very good either, high traffic and issues occur
[23:38] <netman87> bacteu, isnt there torrent clients that make tempfile (empty file and write size for it) and then just save every block when they are downloaded. every block is more than 512k so it should not rewrite memory blocks
[23:39] <mjr> if it isn't an excuse, why is he still here? people have been kicked before for starstuff
[23:39] <dRbiG> bacteu: the question remains, is it software fixable or is it inherent to the usb controller
