[0:34] <Gumby> hi all, I'm seeing almost 100% card failure rate running arch linux on about 20 pis. I'm using 4GB Kingston SD4 cards and have a 2GB / partition. I'm only playing mp3s on the pi and running a few scripts that use wget to ping a server. Log files were being written however I have just changed /var/log/ to tmpfs.
[0:34] <Gumby> Does anyone have any suggestions as to why the cards might be dying after just two weeks?
[0:34] <seba--> Gumby, explain
[0:34] <seba--> Gumby, how do you know it's failing
[0:35] * tubadaz (~quassel@pdpc/supporter/student/tubadaz) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[0:35] <Gumby> seba--: well, the pi is not useable with the cards, and then when I plug the cards into my laptop I see I/O errors and I can not even use dd to create an image of the card
[0:35] <seba--> oh
[0:36] <seba--> i thought you have the same problem as me
[0:36] <satellit_e> I notice that cards can get hot if written to rapidly - In my i7 Intel SD slot. It seems to make them fail
[0:36] <ParkerR> Gumby, Are you overclocked at all?
[0:36] <seba--> i had I/O errors, but i've solved by setting fsck at every boot + /etc/default/rcS to FSCFIX=YES
[0:36] <Gumby> ParkerR: no, I am not (unless arch overclocks by default)
[0:37] <pksato> counterfeit Kingston SD card?
[0:37] <ParkerR> cat /boot/config.txt | grep arm_freq
[0:37] <Gumby> ParkerR: I could if I was able to boot :)
[0:37] <ParkerR> Oh heh
[0:37] <ParkerR> Forgot
[0:38] <Gumby> although, I do have a base image here. I can mount it and find out
[0:38] <Gumby> one sec
[0:38] <satellit_e> thes are Lexar 8GB SDHC UHS-I class 6 cards here
[0:39] <[Saint]> Oy... what's boot like on a class 6 card?
[0:39] <[Saint]> I sometimes want to tear my hair out waiting for a class 10 card.
[0:40] <[Saint]> and one of the class 10 cards I have is a mutant super-freak machine of reading and writing death.
[0:40] <satellit_e> works fine on http://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/Testing/Reports/ARM_RPi#Test_report_rpfr-f18-final.img with B 512 RPi
[0:41] * h0cin (~h0cin@unaffiliated/h0cin) Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[0:41] <[Saint]> Oh dear - its 1990 again.
[0:41] <satellit_e> diskutiliy make diskimage /restore image function is too fast and heats them up to failure
[0:41] <[Saint]> websites that mess with the mouse cursor. Cute.
[0:42] <satellit_e> we support the XO OLPC
[0:42] <satellit_e> for education for kids w small screens
[0:44] <[Saint]> I have mine booting in ~12 seconds, not too bad, but I still find it excruciating to sit through.
[0:45] <satellit_e> yes It is slow but usable
[0:45] * chod (~chod@toy-town.demon.co.uk) Quit (Quit: Lost terminal)
[0:46] * TheSeven (~quassel@rockbox/developer/TheSeven) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:46] * tonyhughes (~Tony@ has joined #raspberrypi
[0:46] <satellit_e> I se up with 1024 swap on card on that test
[0:47] * dano5 is now known as dano5_away
[0:47] <[Saint]> A friend of mine was having read/write speed issues, and I tried poking around a bit - and it seemed as though the sdcard was failing.
[0:47] <[Saint]> But it was a very weird kludge of micro->mini->SD adapters. :)
[0:47] <Gumby> ParkerR: no overclock found in config.txt
[0:48] <satellit_e> I prefer the Ultra sandisk class 10 64GB (30MB/s claimed) they seem to last
[0:50] * bacteu (~b@bact.eu) Quit (Quit: leaving)
[0:51] <Gadgetoid> Re-wrote my microprocessor from the ground up in Logisim, now successfully running my basic test, whee!
[0:53] * bacteu (~b@bact.eu) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:55] <[Saint]> satellit_e: I have an extreme pro microsd with a freakish read speed (110-112MB/s) that I use in one of mine. Just don't buy direct from SanDisk :)
[0:56] * Cykey (~textual@modemcable119.94-162-184.mc.videotron.ca) Quit (Quit: Computer has gone to sleep.)
[0:56] <bacteu> I refuse to believe you get 112MB/s read speeds from a microsd card
[0:56] <[Saint]> the rated speed for the card is 95MB/s
[0:57] <Ben64> I doubt the pi can go that high
[0:57] * tycen (~tycen@ Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[0:58] * hyppias (hyppias@5353041A.cm-6-4a.dynamic.ziggo.nl) Quit ()
[0:58] <[Saint]> Almost certainly not.
[0:59] * felipealmeida (~user@mvx-187-16-79-187.mundivox.com) Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[0:59] <Gumby> I'm using a power supply that I bought along with the pis from Newark/Element14. Is there any reason to suspect that the PSU might be part of the cause for my high rate of SD card corruption?
[0:59] <bacteu> no
[1:00] <seba--> Gumby, measure the voltage coming out
[1:00] <Ben64> bust out the multimeter and check voltage on the test points
[1:00] * ipsifendus (~edward@173-8-205-65-Oregon.hfc.comcastbusiness.net) Quit (Quit: ipsifendus)
[1:00] <seba--> Gumby, maybe you have dips in voltage
[1:00] <Ben64> also, use better sd cards
[1:00] <seba--> that may cause failure
[1:00] <pengol> Ben64: it worked thanks!
[1:00] <Ben64> pengol: :D
[1:01] <Blueness|> what brand/model is the sd card?
[1:01] <Gumby> Kingston SD4 (4GB)
[1:01] <pengol> sony sdhc
[1:01] <pengol> ops :) sorry
[1:02] <Gumby> it may just be that the cards are crappy. after two weeks 18/20 are all but dead
[1:02] <Blueness|> yea
[1:02] * Mr_P (~gerhard@chello080108255018.3.14.vie.surfer.at) Quit (Ping timeout: 240 seconds)
[1:02] <Blueness|> some cards are hit or miss
[1:02] <Gumby> they are playing mp3s using mpd 24/7
[1:03] <Gumby> and that is about it
[1:03] <Gumby> only thing really being written is /var/log and perhaps new media being uploaded at most twice
[1:03] <aaa801> anyone had issues with dgen not outputting sound
[1:03] <bacteu> Gumby: lots of people got corrupted cards with the turbo overclock
[1:03] <Gumby> bacteu: no o/s here
[1:03] <Gumby> o/c
[1:04] <satellit_e> Gumby: I use a powered USB Hub for keyboard and mouse....less strain on RPi power
[1:04] * jdpond (~jdpond@mediawiki/jpond) has left #raspberrypi
[1:04] <Blueness|> corruption only happens during a write which is strange
[1:04] <Blueness|> if you're not writing
[1:04] <Blueness|> it has to be a hardware issue with the card itself
[1:05] * heathkid (~heathkid@unaffiliated/heathkid) Quit (Disconnected by services)
[1:05] * heathkid|2 (~heathkid@unaffiliated/heathkid) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:05] <Gumby> satellit_e: not really an option in my case. These pis are being sent out as media devices that plug into existing phone systems. They play the on-hold music and are internet connected to they can pull in new media when it is available
[1:05] * companion (~companion@unaffiliated/companion) Quit (Ping timeout: 240 seconds)
[1:05] * companion (~companion@unaffiliated/companion) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:05] <Blueness|> i've got a good track record with samsung and amazon branded microsd cards though that may not mean much
[1:06] <Gumby> so all that is being done is reading mp3 files, and a few scripts run via cron to ping a server (using wget) to let the server know it is still online. As well as log files being written which I have just moved to tmpfs
[1:06] <satellit_e> ok have to go afk good luck
[1:06] <Gumby> but even the log files writes should not kill a card in 2 weeks
[1:06] <Blueness|> definitely
[1:06] <Blueness|> try different cards is all i can think of
[1:06] <Gumby> and not 18/20 cards in two weeks
[1:06] <Gumby> hehe
[1:06] <Blueness|> or disable logging maybe haha
[1:06] * AeroNotix (~xeno@aboq170.neoplus.adsl.tpnet.pl) Quit (Quit: Uploading hax.....)
[1:06] <Gumby> with the other two bound to fail shortly
[1:07] <Gumby> ive moved the logging to tmpfs in my base image now that I write to all the sd cards
[1:07] * XenGi is now known as XenGi_
[1:07] * zhvtar (~zhvtar@unaffiliated/zhvtar) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:08] <Gumby> I'm going to try grab 5 cards each of 4 different brands. I have to get 20 cards out asap so it will unfortunately be "in the field" testing
[1:08] * scummos (~sven@p4FDCE8B8.dip.t-dialin.net) Quit (Ping timeout: 276 seconds)
[1:08] <Blueness|> haha
[1:08] <Blueness|> yea i can't really think of much of a software solution
[1:08] <Gumby> at least on-hold music isnt mission critical :)
[1:09] * wiiguy (~fake@unaffiliated/wiiguy) Quit (Quit: I just broke my connection, but no worries, we can rebuild it. We have the technology.)
[1:09] <Blueness|> how are you telling if files are corrupted
[1:09] <bacteu> http://www.raspberrypi.org/archives/3534
[1:09] <satellit_e> is the Power supply adequate?
[1:09] <Blueness|> and have you tried repairing/reformatting?
[1:09] <Gumby> the cards cant be mounted, dumped using dd, repartitioned... notihng
[1:09] <Blueness|> yuck
[1:10] <Gumby> satellit_e: the psu were purchased with the pis from newark/element14
[1:10] <tonyhughes> WAHOOO free 42" LED Bravia internet TV on its way to me! I love my bank.
[1:10] <Blueness|> what is the amps on the PSU?
[1:10] <Gumby> so I assume they are adequate but will do some testing. will have to read up on where to test
[1:10] <Gumby> Blueness|: one sec I ill grab one
[1:10] <Blueness|> ideally you want a PSU that can feed ~1A
[1:10] <Blueness|> 500mA is minimum for the model A
[1:11] <satellit_e> or more....
[1:11] <Blueness|> 700mA is minimum for model B
[1:11] <Gumby> 1A
[1:11] <Blueness|> well its not a power issue
[1:11] <Blueness|> besides the card it could be a defect in the pi or software issue
[1:12] <Blueness|> both far less likely than the card itself lol
[1:12] * zproc (~zproc@laf31-6-82-241-3-109.fbx.proxad.net) Quit (Quit: zproc)
[1:12] <Gumby> 18 defective pis?
[1:12] <Gumby> hehe
[1:12] <Blueness|> lol
[1:13] * Firehopper (~Firehoppe@pool-71-175-194-74.phlapa.east.verizon.net) Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[1:13] <Blueness|> maybe the PSA with the hynix memory chip Pi's might be related
[1:13] <Blueness|> that bacteu linked
[1:13] * Armand (~martin@87-194-165-154.bethere.co.uk) Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[1:14] * plugwash (~plugwash@2001:5c0:1400:a::1e1) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:14] <Blueness|> i guess using the latest raspbian of whatever distro you are using wouldn't hurt
[1:14] <Gumby> yes, I am going to update that as well
[1:14] <Gumby> currently running arch arm from nov I believe
[1:15] <Blueness|> hmm
[1:15] <Blueness|> thats pretty old lol
[1:15] <Blueness|> though I doubt an old distro would destroy cards like that lol
[1:15] <Blueness|> strange, I hope you get it figured out Gumby
[1:16] <Gumby> ditto. I'm the one supplying the hardware to someone for their project so its me who partially looks like the idiot here
[1:16] <Gumby> then again, I told them there was testing needed before we started distribtuion of the concept, but they decided to distribute without testing
[1:16] * Gumby shrugs
[1:17] <Blueness|> lol
[1:17] <Blueness|> keep your receipt :)
[1:17] <Gumby> heh, indeed

[1:40] <pksato> can be, monitor can not support audio from hdmi.
[1:40] <pksato> what monitor?

[1:47] <QazzaQY2K> hey I was testing my new SDCard, when I got some funny reads at 100MB/s but only with 100M files. Here's my loggs http://pastebin.com/V918HQHV
[1:48] <[Saint]> similar card to mine.
[1:48] <[Saint]> I've seen the card do 110~12MB/s before.
[1:48] * Torikun (~Torikun@76-220-9-159.lightspeed.sntcca.sbcglobal.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:48] <[Saint]> *112MB/s
[1:49] <[Saint]> Not on the raspi, mind you...
[1:49] <QazzaQY2K> is there any optimal alignment I could do?? this is on the RPi ..
[1:49] <edman007> QazzaQY2K, first, how did you measure it...
[1:49] <[Saint]> edman007: did you even look?
[1:49] <QazzaQY2K> with dd if=testfile_100MB of=/dev/null bs=1024
[1:49] <edman007> some cards can do some very high speeds (the class X is the speed)
[1:50] <bacteu> QazzaQY2K: flash memory has crap speeds with small files (ie an OS), it's just a fact of life
[1:50] <edman007> QazzaQY2K, that ignores the cache, linux has writes caches, you should wrap the call in syncs and time the from the start of dd to the end of the second sync at least
[1:51] <aaa801> bacteu, pksato , speaker-test works on my tv, still nothing from dgen
[1:51] <QazzaQY2K> edman007: I'm bit of a newb, what command should I write to do that?
[1:51] <bacteu> aaa801: try the forums
[1:52] <edman007> sync; time (dd blah; sync)
[1:52] <edman007> that gives you something close, though hdparm does a real bench the right way
[1:52] <edman007> and then divide the time numbers (real) by the data transfered
[1:53] <QazzaQY2K> what's hdparm? a benchmarking program?
[1:53] <edman007> QazzaQY2K, hard drive control program, lets you mess with all the little settings for a drive
[1:53] <Gumby> its like chicken parm, only for HDDs
[1:53] <edman007> includes a simple drive bench
[1:54] <QazzaQY2K> :D reading the wiki now
[1:54] <pksato> no. hdparm set some parameter of IDE HDD. not userfull on sata HDs. except to make some benchmarking.
[1:55] <edman007> `hdparm -t /dev/sda` will bench the read
[1:56] * flufmnstr (~rawr@71-83-131-140.dhcp.snbr.ca.charter.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:56] <edman007> pksato, it controls the ATA stuff, SATA uses ATA just as much as IDE, though it doesn't do as much with usb things and they lack most of that stuff
[1:56] <edman007> or rather flash drives
[1:57] <Gumby> heh, nice. I ordered $1500 worth of rpi stuff from Newark/Element14 and they send me a %15 off coupon. I just tried to place another smaller order and tried to use the 15% off coupon but it would not apply for some reason. So I emailed them and they told me that the coupons dont apply to raspberry pi or raspberry pi accessories
[1:57] <ParkerR> Hehe
[1:57] * owen_ (~pi@ has joined #raspberrypi
[1:57] <ParkerR> Gumby, And umm

[1:57] <edman007> Gumby, i got the 15% coupon for just one rpi :P
[1:57] <ParkerR> How the heck do you spend 1,500 on RPI and RPi related stuf?
[1:57] <Gumby> edman007: sriiously?
[1:58] <Gumby> oh, the coupon
[1:58] <Gumby> hehe
[1:58] <Gumby> not applied to a pi
[1:58] <edman007> and so far I've blown about $1k on my RPi submarine, and I got about nothing working yet (mostly because of waiting on shipping)
[1:58] <edman007> Gumby, no, not applied to it

[1:59] <ParkerR> Gumby, O.o :O
[1:59] <ParkerR> Ok for that price I could have one kick ass desktop
[1:59] <ParkerR> Oh sorry
[1:59] <Gumby> I understand why it cant be applied to pis themselvs
[1:59] <Gumby> but SD cards?

[2:03] <[Saint]> Gumby: I had a similar weird situation with raspis, RS NZ (which is just RS UK by another name, oddly), and vouchers: I ordered a raspi model B, they sent the order confirmation, the sent the shipping confirmation, then they sent another shipping confirmation...so I emailed them and they were all like "Well, thanks for telling us but its too late - enjoy your free pi". As if that wasn't awesome enough, because I was honest and tried to tell them
[2:03] <[Saint]> about the error they sent me a $20 voucher.

[2:06] <Gumby> bacteu: one would think. heh. I just wanted something that was supposedly wasnt gonna crap out on me :)
[2:07] <Gumby> so I figured why not
[2:07] <[Saint]> I agree with the latter - but, not Amazon. Fake cards roam aplenty there.
[2:07] <ParkerR> Gumby, Man, I wish I had that kind of money
[2:07] <bacteu> [Saint]: that's why you only buy the ones that ship from amazon's warehouse

[2:20] <Ben64> omxplayer does do audio, but doesn't do wildcards last i checked

[2:21] <Gumby> ParkerR: so it still exists? I'm not sure it is hardware because it doesnt exist when I use arch linux

[2:21] <Gumby> only raspian
[2:21] <ParkerR> Gumby, Weird
[2:21] <ParkerR> Dont know myself. Use HDMI
[2:21] <Ben64> ParkerR: i don't think that accurate, mplayer2 is just a fork
[2:21] <Gumby> I guess it could still be a hardware issue, but perhaps they have found a way around it with their drivers
[2:24] <Gumby> is there a root user in raspbian ?

[2:56] <lunchdump> i just downloaded the .img and dd'd it to the sd card (bought a card reader). I've tried 2 power supplies one is 5V/2A (DC) and the other is 5V/1A (microUSB)
[2:57] <seba--> weird
[2:57] <seba--> maybe the SD card is not compatible
[2:57] <Ben64> bust out the multimeter and check voltage on the test points
[2:57] <seba--> some SD cards don't work with r.pi
[2:57] <Ben64> bad cables, and long cables don't like the pi
[2:58] <lunchdump> its the preformatted element14 sd card and worked previously
[2:58] <lunchdump> im going to buy a multimeter now o__o

[3:03] <RiXtEr> *pi
[3:03] <lunchdump> Yeah, it mounts and the filesystem seems intact. there are 2 partitions like before
[3:04] <seba--> lunchdump, it's the SD card on the compatible list, on which pins did you apply 5V and GND?
[3:05] <lunchdump> I really don't know... I didn't look, I just re arranged them to see if it'd work then, and did :\

[6:28] <ParkerR> fr0g911, It's a little USB dongle that basically works with about any remote and an emulate a standard HID keyboard
[6:28] <fr0g911> that sounds pretty awesome
[6:28] <ParkerR> *and it
[6:28] <fr0g911> trying to find it on amazon
[6:29] <ParkerR> So you plug it into a computer (I think just Windows and Mac for now) and use their software to program it. It programs the codes into the device and then whatever you plug it into sees a keyboard attached
[6:29] <ParkerR> fr0g911, It may be only at their website http://flirc.tv/
[6:29] <fr0g911> yeah im looking at it pretty cool
[6:30] <ParkerR> Havent shopped around
[6:30] <fr0g911> yeah they dont see it anywhere besides ebay
[6:30] <fr0g911> and its 30 bucks on there
[6:30] <ParkerR> Oh it does work on linux
[6:30] <ParkerR> QT app
[6:31] <fr0g911> yea i already found a 9$ remote for the pi thats confirmed working with xbmc free shipping so im gonna just use that but i wanna buy that flirc now too cause that will be awesome for other peoples tv's
[6:33] <fr0g911> there we go fixed my buffer problem

[6:46] <ParkerR> [Saint], What do you mean? You just let it install and reboot
[6:47] <[Saint]> Right - but, I'm getting a flash of activity, power light, then...nothing.

[6:50] <ParkerR> In plain english :P
[6:51] <ParkerR> http://www.raspbian.org/RaspbianInstaller
[6:51] <[Saint]> Aha - well, I misparsed - and I was unclear.
[6:52] <ParkerR> They say format to a single fat32 but you can just throw it on the boot partition if it was used with the Pi before
[6:52] <[Saint]> I *am* installing it to a fat32 partition, your use of the term "boot partition" confused me.
[6:52] <ParkerR> Oh sorry
[6:52] <ParkerR> I was assuming the card was used with Pi previously. Sorry
[6:52] <[Saint]> I will try the latter - and it is me that should be sorry, I was terribly unclear.
[6:53] <[Saint]> The card has been used with a pi previously, but I wiped out the partitions and started agin.

[8:12] <DenBeiren> hi, is it possible to controll the pi from another computer? eg teamviewer?
[8:12] <ShiftPlusOne> absolutely
[8:12] <ShiftPlusOne> just not with teamviewer
[8:12] <DenBeiren> what would work better then?
[8:12] <ShiftPlusOne> for text-only, ssh works great. For guis you'll need something like vnc.
[8:13] <DenBeiren> i would like to use a pi only to show a powerpoint slideshow on a tv
[8:13] <DenBeiren> ths powerpoint should be easily changed by users
[8:14] <DenBeiren> i was looking into msi's windbooks etc, but i am in doubt if a pi will do the same
[8:16] <ShiftPlusOne> by powerpoint do you mean ms powerpoint or are you using it as a generic term?
[8:16] <DenBeiren> let me explain a bit more,..
[8:16] * ShiftPlusOne puts on the listening glasses.
[8:17] * Turingi (~devon@unaffiliated/devon-hillard/x-7250961) has joined #raspberrypi
[8:17] <DenBeiren> one of my customers is a doctor,.. in his waitingroom there is a tv, no computer. on this screen he shows info for his practice
[8:17] * d1gital (~ubuntu@fsf/member/d1gital) Quit (Disconnected by services)
[8:17] <DenBeiren> situation now = a mininotebook hidden behind the tv
[8:17] <DenBeiren> but it's loud, and it's "stealable" :-)
[8:18] <JohannesG> you can easily use a Raspberry to display information like that, although it won't be able to run a Powerpoint slideshow (unless you mean powerpoint as a generic term for any kind of a slideshow)
[8:18] <DenBeiren> he makes a powerpoint (yes ms) on his own pc, puts it on a stick, goes to the mininotebook, copies it and plays it from the mininotebook
[8:19] <ShiftPlusOne> yeah that will all work great, except for the powerpoint part
[8:19] <ShiftPlusOne> you'll need to use something like libreoffice
[8:19] <DenBeiren> so in which way could i deploy a pi there?
[8:19] * _45h_ (~vlad@ has joined #raspberrypi
[8:19] <_45h_> ???????? ??????????????, ????????????
[8:20] <JohannesG> LibreOffice or something similar showing a LibreOffice slideshow, other way would be to have the Pi use VNC to remote view a computer (a mininotebook) hidden somewhere else. that way you can have a powerpoint slideshow
[8:21] <ShiftPlusOne> DenBeiren, I think what you have planned is fine. Hook it all up and you can transfer files to it remotely with ssh or a network share and you can use vnc to control it.
[8:21] <ShiftPlusOne> _45h_, You alright there?
[8:21] <DenBeiren> any preferred distro?
[8:22] <JohannesG> raspbian is probably the best start
[8:22] <ShiftPlusOne> raspbian will provide you with the most support if you're just starting out
[8:22] <DenBeiren> it's not really me i'm worried about,.. it's the doctor :-)
[8:23] <ShiftPlusOne> Well... you wouldn't want to take any risks on something as serious as a waiting room slideshow.
[8:23] <JohannesG> the general rule is that it's piece of cake to set this up, but can be a bit more tricky to make things easy to use for a regular user.
[8:23] <DenBeiren> he doesn't afaik
[8:24] <ShiftPlusOne> Is the computer he wants to control the pi from running windows?
[8:24] <DenBeiren> he has windows in his cabinet, the pi would be in the waitingroom
[8:24] <DenBeiren> so controll the pi from windows yes
[8:25] <ShiftPlusOne> Yes, I got that. Ok, so he'll just need a vnc client and either a properly configured network share or winscp.
[8:27] <DenBeiren> i've got a spare memorycard here,.. i'll try some things on my pi

[9:35] <ShiftPlusOne> Nice, looks similar to the structure of 'The elements of computing systems' (nand2tetris).

[9:42] <ShiftPlusOne> Np, the website is a bit lacking compared to the book, but lots of great info 'course
[9:42] <Gadgetoid> My microprocessor can currently load numbers from ROM, compare, jump, add, subtract and move
[9:43] <Gadgetoid> And my compiler understands "start: -- LOOP start" syntax and rewrites it into an appropriate unconditional jump instruction

[10:08] <Gadgetoid> Yeah, quite a number of months in fact! Had somewhat of a life crises, then computer gaming happened
[10:09] <Gadgetoid> My blog got neglected, too, but I've resurrected and overhauled it with some spangly new features??? it's still slow though, which is odd as it's served from a caching proxy
[10:10] <Gadgetoid> Oh wow, I has a comment!
[10:10] <ShiftPlusOne> Ah, well good to see you're getting back into all of that.
[10:10] <ShiftPlusOne> and I am off
[10:10] <Gadgetoid> Aha, have fun! and a good day, or night, I can't remember which!
[10:10] <Gadgetoid> joy! http://pi.gadgetoid.com/post/001-who-watches-the-watcher#comment-835743624
[10:11] <ShiftPlusOne> I don't see any comments O_o

[10:13] <Kevel> is there a new board coming out anytime soon, or should i just buy the current class 2 board?
[10:15] * omgmog (~omgmog@ has joined #raspberrypi
[10:16] <Gadgetoid> Kevel: I'd go for the current one, otherwise you're Pi-less for an undetermined amount of time
[10:16] <Gadgetoid> There's certainly no need for a new board at the moment! Unless you want VGA

[10:47] <[Saint]> depending on how old you are, I'd wager most people don't care.
[10:48] <[Saint]> if you're around 20 or younger, most technology was just "always there", forever.
[10:48] <bacteu> so?
[10:48] <Gadgetoid> The sad truth of it, yes! I wonder how long before us technologically-inclined are seen as great and magical wizards manipulating unseen and mystical forces???
[10:48] <bacteu> the same thing happened with the radio
[10:48] <[Saint]> add just 10 to 15 years on to that, and you get an age of constant discovery - its really pretty cool.
[10:48] <Gadgetoid> Not that it isn't pretty much like that already

[10:50] <[Saint]> I once asked my (much younger than i {heh}) So when she thought the internet was invented - the answer?
[10:50] <[Saint]> "Uhhhh - 1940? No, no wait...1930?"
[10:50] <bacteu> the internet didn't really take form until the mid 90's
[10:51] <[Saint]> right around the time she was busy being born :)
[10:51] <Gadgetoid> Back in 1930 it was formed with a network of paper cup telephones
[10:51] <Gadgetoid> And everyone made high pitches squeals down them

[10:54] <Gadgetoid> It's somewhat alarming that, from a technological perspective, being 30 is old
[10:55] <Gadgetoid> Not sure if I was poor, or I'm old, but I remember owning a black and white television
[10:55] <[Saint]> I remember television remotes having cables.
[10:55] <[Saint]> again - not sure if old or poor, but I recall it.
[10:56] <bacteu> eh?
[10:56] <bacteu> Cables?!
[10:56] <Vazde> Not to interrupt your chat, but could anyone help me with alsa? i have an external usb sound card and having troubles with buffering(?): few images of captured audio output at different frequencies and zooms: http://dea.fi/iW and http://dea.fi/iX

With basic_ftpd.py which looks a bit like: http://pastebin.com/bGUsx5xe
[14:04] <knoppies> You can get the server from: https://code.google.com/p/pyftpdlib/

[14:11] <gordonDrogon> I've never seen more than 3Mb/sec via scp to/from a Pi ..
[14:11] <Ben64> also depends on the sd card
[14:11] <knoppies> gordonDrogon, what SD card?
[14:11] <gordonDrogon> let me run some tests
[14:11] <knoppies> gordonDrogon, I recommend a class 10.
[14:11] <Ben64> if you can't write 12.5MB/s to a card, you can't scp that fast
[14:11] <gordonDrogon> my SD cards can do 20Mb/sec.
[14:11] <gordonDrogon> 20MB/sec too.
[14:11] <jelly1> mine too
[14:12] * DexterLB (~dex@95-42-20-87.btc-net.bg) has joined #raspberrypi
[14:12] <knoppies> gordonDrogon, up to 20MB/s and minimum of 20MB/s are a HUGE difference.
[14:12] <knoppies> gordonDrogon, most HDDs can burst 6gb/s.
[14:12] <Ben64> class 10 can be slower than class 6
[14:12] <knoppies> Ben64, only if you are transferring lots of tiny files.
[14:13] <Ben64> no
[14:13] <knoppies> really?
[14:14] <Ben64> class 10 is 10MB/s minimum for contiguous writing, which doesn't happen a good deal of the time
[14:14] <knoppies> Ben64, I have 32GIG cards, it happens often enough for me.
[14:14] <knoppies> what class6 cards do you recommend? I need one for my phone.

[14:15] <gordonDrogon> knoppies, hdd's are limited by their head bandwidth - currently 120MB/sec for the fastest ones.
[14:15] <Ben64> i mean you can get class 10, but make sure it's not a crappy one
[14:15] <Ben64> i have the samsung extreme micro sd in my phone
[14:15] <gordonDrogon> knoppies, the 'burst' is the cable speed, not the speed to medium.
[14:15] <knoppies> gordonDrogon, yes, but their buffer can still talk at 6gbits/s
[14:15] <knoppies> gordonDrogon, I am aware of that.
[14:15] <knoppies> Ben64, thank you.

[14:16] <Ben64> don't get a transcend class 10 and expect it to be awesome
[14:16] <Ben64> theres also that newer speed rating
[14:16] <knoppies> gordonDrogon, now do a write to the SD card over something other than scp. Like a local USB HDD or something.
[14:17] <gordonDrogon> gordon @ yakko: scp pi0:bigfile .
[14:17] <gordonDrogon> bigfile 100% 300MB 3.5MB/s 01:26
[14:18] <knoppies> gordonDrogon, I still want to know how fast the SD card is.
[14:18] <gordonDrogon> gordon @ pi0: dd if=/dev/zero of=bigfile bs=1M count=100

[16:46] <eggy> that's how I feel abount my 256mb pi, though I'm not throwing it away. I upgraded to the 512MB model due to slowness ;)
[16:46] <Kevel> if people are so good at robotics, cant they upgrade their own pi to 1Gb+ ?
[16:47] <DDave> chipset limitation?
[16:47] <ReggieUK> it's got nothing to do with robotics
[16:47] <ReggieUK> and everything to do with there not being a suitable package to upgrade with
[16:47] <steve_rox> and did the 512 version have much of a difference?
[16:47] <Kevel> im not sure what line of work making computer chips and boards fall into

[16:50] <eggy> yeah, it has improved my GUI experience quite a bit (overclocking might be also helping).
[16:50] <steve_rox> dunno i presed the autocomplete button and i assume the client could cope
[16:50] <eggy> my 256MB pi is a vpn/ssh server

[17:10] <timatron> hey y'all???. I'm creating a wheezy img for distribution that is an auto video player / looper when the pi is turned on, its all done i'm just trying to package the img nicely to post online. I'm on a mac and every time i create the image i end up with a 16GB image (from a 16GB card), I never expanded the fs on the card, so is there a way to make a much smaller image so that it's easier to distribute? I haven't found very good
[17:10] <timatron> instructions anywhere online yet, anyone got a link to point me to? Thanks!
[17:10] * hyperair (~hyperair@ubuntu/member/hyperair) Quit (Ping timeout: 264 seconds)
[17:10] <timatron> FYI I used 2 raspberry pis for an art exhibition, they each played 1 hr videos that were ~25GB each constantly for a month and never failed!
[17:11] <timatron> not even overclocked!
[17:11] <DDave> timatron, you are dd'ing the whole drive instead of just the partition
[17:11] <timatron> yeah dave, but how do i get the two partitions?
[17:11] <timatron> ie the fat and the ext4?
[17:11] <RaTTuS|BIG> dd each partition seperatly
[17:12] <timatron> but that sucks for distribution
[17:12] <timatron> I'm trying to package it like the normal wheezy img
[17:12] <RaTTuS|BIG> ok - dd the drive but specify how many blocks tyou want to copy

[17:20] <nid0> er going back a bit if you want a full 16GB card image but in a small download, just gzip it
[17:21] <RaTTuS|BIG> ^ but that wont work on a smaller card...
[17:21] <nid0> but do be aware that to write that 16GB image to a pi a user will need a 16GB card regardless of how much data is actually on it
[17:21] <nid0> you need to setup your image on a 1-2GB card if you want to just have a small image that can be written to a small card without doing any manual alterations to partitions
[17:22] <timatron> OH
[17:22] <timatron> i wonder since I already have my 16GB image, I could write it to the 2GB card
[17:22] <timatron> then image that
[17:22] <RaTTuS|BIG> yes he said he had not expaned his system so it still would be 2Gb
[17:22] <nid0> gzipping your 16GB image will make it very small as all the unused space will be reduced to (essentially) zero, but you still end up with an image that tries to write a 16GB partition
[17:22] <timatron> yeah
[17:23] <timatron> i want the img file to be < 2GB for distribution purposes and ease for others
[17:23] <timatron> I'm basically making this for other artists that want to use raspi but are scared
[17:23] <timatron> trying to give back a bit
[17:23] <timatron> I'm mostly a leech:)
[17:24] <timatron> i have a 2GB card, but its super sLOOOW, ill try the dd tricks with block size first
[17:24] * cccy_RegeaneWolf is now known as cccyRegeaneWolfe
[17:24] <nid0> then yeah as RaTTuS|BIG said you can do some jiggery pokery with the size of the dd to limit it to only what partitions are actually there, do each partition separately, or use a small card as a starting point :)

[17:31] <RaTTuS|BIG> 1850 blocks ... may be the thing you need .....

[22:14] <KiltedPi> Now, I reckon "DO"/"SCK" are "SO"/"CLK" from the old circuit... what VCC is, I don't have a clue!
[22:15] * KiltedPi is tired of reading the forums for an answer :(
[22:16] <bertrik> VCC is usually power
[22:16] <KiltedPi> I'd agree with that.
[22:16] <KiltedPi> Just think I wanted to hear someone else say it!
[22:17] * DenBeiren (~Denbeiren@ Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[22:17] <KiltedPi> :)))
[22:17] <KiltedPi> The integrated circuit was $10!
[22:17] <KiltedPi> I don't want to fry it... Yet...
[22:17] <KiltedPi> Do you reckon SO=DO?
[22:17] <KiltedPi> It says - in fact-
[22:17] <KiltedPi> I'll link a pic of the circuit
[22:18] <KiltedPi> Apologies for long link: http://d4c027c89b30561298bd-484902fe60e1615dc83faa972a248000.r12.cf3.rackcdn.com/imagepicker/19/thumbs/max31855-breakout-board-onl.jpg
[22:18] <KiltedPi> thats a pic of my wee guy on me lap at the moment-
[22:19] <bertrik> just guessing, but DO could be data-out, SO could be slave-out, would that make sense for your chip/circuit?
[22:19] <KiltedPi> Oh!
[22:20] <KiltedPi> Its an SPI interface, yeah
[22:20] <gordonDrogon> SPI.
[22:20] <gordonDrogon> SCK - clock, SO Slave Out.
[22:21] <gordonDrogon> CS - with a bar over it - chip select.
[22:21] * ztag100_ (~ztag100@unaffiliated/ztag100) has joined #raspberrypi
[22:21] <KiltedPi> it has a bar over it, yup
[22:21] <KiltedPi> Its knowing which relates to which on the pi is the problem
[22:21] <gordonDrogon> easy. clock to clock.
[22:21] <KiltedPi> like Slave out-
[22:21] <gordonDrogon> CS to one of the CS0 or CS1 pins.
[22:21] <KiltedPi> roger that.
[22:22] <gordonDrogon> SO - that's MISO - Master In Slave Out.
[22:22] <KiltedPi> VCC to 3.3v?
[22:22] <gordonDrogon> yes.
[22:22] <KiltedPi> kk
[22:22] <KiltedPi> Right!
[22:22] <KiltedPi> I'll solder up now then...
[22:22] <KiltedPi> I think I've got my corresponding pins.
[22:22] <KiltedPi> And theres a pull-up resistor.
[22:23] <gordonDrogon> put the pins in a breadboard first.
[22:23] <gordonDrogon> Hm. I need a socket for standard board pins...

[22:43] <dansan> hey guys. Is there any reason why the Raspian image is fat16 and not ext2 or some such?
[22:45] <Draylor> isnt it just the boot partition thats fat
[22:45] <dansan> hmmm
[22:45] <Draylor> which is because thats what the pi expects/requires it to be
[22:45] <dansan> ahhh
[22:45] <gordonDrogon> the main partition is ext4
[22:45] <dansan> Well, the image is 1.8G or so
[22:46] <gordonDrogon> it's an image with 2 partitions in it.
[22:46] <dansan> ok, then maybe I'm doing this wrong.

[22:46] * mchou (~quassel@unaffiliated/mchou) has joined #raspberrypi
[22:46] <bertrik> KiltedPi: one important detail, are the voltages coming from the pi and the voltage expected by your chip compatible?

[22:48] <demure> anyone use Xnest?
[22:48] <dansan> So after I dd it over, I presume I just delete & re-add the parition and resizee2fs?
[22:48] <dansan> Draylor: ty :)
[22:48] <dansan> aww, but it uses the old DOS partition table, I presume that's required as well huh?
[22:49] <Draylor> it'll use the simplest version, to keep the size of the bootcode to a minimum

[22:59] <dansan> but that brings me to another question, can I have multiple OSes on the same SD card? More specifically of course, are the questions "do you have keyboard access at early boot?", etc.
[22:59] <dansan> multi-booting would be the only reason I would want to do it manually anyway
[23:00] <gordonDrogon> there is something that will let you multi-boot

[23:00] <gordonDrogon> multiple SD cards is of-course another option!

[23:16] <dansan> that's just wierd to me because I'm used to talking to hardware from within the kernel. Userspace is fine for some things (as long as it goes through a kernel driver that doesn't let you blow stuff up), but going to a web interface is just strange

[23:19] <dansan> strange, wierd, odd, etc. :)
[23:19] <Helldesk> you mean 'weird'
[23:19] <gordonDrogon> dansan, or there are libraries to help you do it - e.g. my wiringPi library.
[23:19] <dansan> oh, yeah, wieirieid
[23:19] <Helldesk> :)
[23:20] <dansan> gordonDrogon: yeah, well I'm not used to allowing normal users to do that type of thing. I guess I've reserved it in my mind as one of those "bad things", like when you have a batter driver that tries to check the power by putting a massive load on it for a split second, but if you leave it on too long, the battery goes unstable and catches fire or explodes
[23:20] <gordonDrogon> dansan, I can give you a command-line command that will blow up your Pi :)
[23:21] <gordonDrogon> dansan, this is the way it's done on the Pi...
[23:21] <dansan> yeah, exactly!
[23:21] <dansan> lmao!
[23:21] <dansan> that amazes me!!
[23:21] <Helldesk> man, pi malware
[23:21] <gordonDrogon> what's happened is that people are treating it like a spouped up microcontroller - which it's not, but that's not stopping people.
[23:21] <dansan> Helldesk: don't use an m$ product
[23:21] <gordonDrogon> people like me writing wiringPi for it ...
[23:22] <gordonDrogon> no more or less Pi malware than any other linux box - yet.
[23:22] <chod> command line that allows damage?
[23:22] <gordonDrogon> chod, potentially. the reaility is that it causes a reboot.
[23:23] <gordonDrogon> there is a GPIO pin shorted to ground on the Pi. if you make that pin an output and drive it to 3.3v then ... you've just shorted a gpio pin to ground..
[23:23] <dansan> gordonDrogon: yeah, well before I'm done, I intend to have most of my hardware iteraction happening in kernelspace
[23:23] <gordonDrogon> dansan, you'll be the first to do it.
[23:24] <dansan> that's wierd, why?
[23:24] <dansan> *wEird!
[23:24] <gordonDrogon> because people are treating it like a microcontroller.
[23:24] <gordonDrogon> they expect/want to be able to poke hardware from their programs.
[23:24] <gordonDrogon> so they do.
[23:24] <dansan> wow
[23:24] <gordonDrogon> and I (for my sins) help them.
[23:24] <dansan> lmao!!!!
[23:24] <chod> :D
[23:25] <gordonDrogon> ok - so the Pi has 8 GPIO pins - you want to connect one to an LED and make it flash - how would you do it?
[23:25] <dansan> I guess these kids today, they just poke hardware from userland, spoiled brats that they are
[23:25] <dansan> gordonDrogon: me personally?
[23:25] <gordonDrogon> yes.
[23:26] <dansan> gordonDrogon: I would use 4 of them for an SPI interface to a wifi adapter that would communicate with an RF controller tank that would....
[23:26] <gordonDrogon> sure ...
[23:26] <gordonDrogon> this is how I'd do it: http://unicorn.drogon.net/blink.c
[23:26] <gordonDrogon> and I'd run that program with sudo.
[23:26] <dansan> gordonDrogon: no, seriously, if I wanted to make it quick and dirty, just stick a transistor (to buffer the TTL level signal) and have that go to a current limiting resistor, etc...
[23:26] <gordonDrogon> and that's how people are doing it on the Pi.
[23:26] <dansan> oh, in software!

[23:42] <gordonDrogon> probably going to get an air-gun for some other stuff. maybe.
[23:43] <gordonDrogon> after my old weller died, I bought a cheapie recently until I've worked out what I really want & can afford/justify...
[23:43] <dansan> I've never altered smt stuff before and we've gotta change these KIS-3R33S power supplies
[23:44] <gordonDrogon> http://unicorn.drogon.net/weller.jpg alas poor weller, I knew it well..
[23:44] <dansan> Are the hot air guns expensive?
[23:44] <gordonDrogon> cheapest decent one I've seen is about ?90.
[23:44] <dansan> I take it that it served you well? :)
[23:44] <dansan> wow
[23:44] <dansan> that's about $130 US huh?
[23:44] <gordonDrogon> I had that for 35 years and it was 2nd hand when I bought it.

[23:45] <DDave> gordonDrogon, older than I am
[23:45] <dansan> hah! they don't make stuff like that anymore. The share holders wont let them
[23:45] <DDave> Weeeeeeeeird xD
[23:45] * lupinedk is now known as Lupinedk
[23:45] <gordonDrogon> :)
[23:45] <gordonDrogon> I'm 50...
[23:45] <DDave> But I have a weller at home myself, not too sure how old it is..
[23:46] <gordonDrogon> I'd have another, but they're reassuringly expensive.
[23:46] <IncognitoMan> gordonDrogon: what flags should i use with memtester
[23:46] <IncognitoMan> flags/options
[23:46] <gordonDrogon> IncognitoMan, just the memory size.

[23:46] <gordonDrogon> IncognitoMan, memtester 200M
[23:47] <jbollden> Have I understood it correctly that this wifi will work in the onboard usb-ports http://thepihut.com/products/usb-wifi-adapter-for-the-raspberry-pi , without extra power?
[23:47] * anew (~anew@unaffiliated/anew) has left #raspberrypi
[23:47] <dansan> oh yeah, speaking of which, what is the max continuious amount of power you can draw from the USBs on the pi?
[23:48] <gordonDrogon> dansan, not much. use a powered hub.
[23:48] <gordonDrogon> there is about 300mA 'spare' on the +5v supply. Maybe 400 if you're lucky & have a good PSU.
[23:48] <gordonDrogon> Reb 1 Pi's have 140mA polyfuses on each of the USBs, Rev 2's don't.
[23:49] <gordonDrogon> IncognitoMan, remember to run it with sudo
[23:49] <jbollden> gordonDrogon: What about that wifi dongle?
[23:50] <gordonDrogon> jbollden, what about it? I've no idea - I don't run Wi-fi on my Pi.s
[23:50] <IncognitoMan> im running under root so no problems there
[23:50] <dansan> gordonDrogon: ty
[23:51] <eggy> idk why my wifi thingy works on raspbian; but not xmbc ;/
[23:51] <dansan> jbollden: It says it will draw <110mA, so as long as you don't have other loads that exceed your PSU, it *sounds* (to me) OK
[23:51] <jbollden> gordonDrogon: ah but since it says 110mA I were thinking that it would work, but I'm really not good when it comes to the hardware/electricity
[23:51] <jbollden> dansan: ah ok
[23:51] <pksato> IncognitoMan: you rpi have a Hynix memory? http://www.raspberrypi.org/archives/3534
[23:52] <gordonDrogon> jbollden, if it really only needs 110mA then it should work.
[23:52] <IncognitoMan> pksato: im on an old 256mb model
[23:53] <gordonDrogon> however, zed time for me.
[23:53] <gordonDrogon> laters.
