[2:50] <eggy> that's that's what amazon shipped me
[2:50] <eggy> heh
[2:50] <SwK> thats where I get them also
[2:51] <SwK> and cheap too
[2:51] <eggy> ya
[2:51] <SwK> I keep trying to figure out if I have a reason to try and make this work lol ": Order $242.75 more to get a free Raspberry Pi."
[2:53] <fr0g911> hi
[2:53] <epoch_> Hi.
[2:53] <fr0g911> hello
[2:53] <fr0g911> goodbye
[2:53] * divine (~divine@2001:470:8247:1::42) has joined #raspberrypi

[2:56] * cccy_RegeaneWolf is now known as cccyRegeaneWolfe
[2:56] <eggy> though it seems the xmbc distro doesn't supporth the Edimax wifi dongle that well; raspbain has much quicker speeds
[2:57] <SwK> now if only I could get usb2.0 to play nice I'll be happy
[2:57] <eggy> the usb hub I'm using is only 1.0, its an old powered one that I had lying around.. heh
[2:58] <SwK> I plug my edimax straight in
[2:58] <SwK> the problem I have is I'm doing USB audio also
[2:59] <SwK> and in usb2.0 mode the audio sounds like crap
[3:00] * deffrag (~Dedec@unaffiliated/deffrag) has joined #raspberrypi
[3:00] <eggy> yah, i plug the edimax in directly, the hub is for the keyboard/mouse
[3:00] <eggy> noticed something, at least with my setup. if I unplug my edimax.. it will power cycle the pi
[3:00] <eggy> very odd
[3:01] <SwK> lol
[3:01] <SwK> i've never had that happen
[3:01] * deffrag_ (~Dedec@unaffiliated/deffrag) Quit (Ping timeout: 264 seconds)
[3:01] <eggy> I don't know why it happens.
[3:01] <SwK> i have power cycled my pi plugging in like a USB headset or a power hungry USB powered audio adapter
[3:01] <eggy> wondering if its my phone charger that I'm using
[3:03] <eggy> oh well, its an odd thing ;/
[3:03] <SwK> it could be
[3:04] <SwK> alot of those things done have enough capacitance on their output to handle large changes in the pi's consumption
[3:04] * Fandango_ (~Fandango@c-71-236-64-18.hsd1.pa.comcast.net) Quit (Quit: Fandango_)
[3:04] <eggy> the older pi is plugged into an iPhone charger that seems to handle it very well
[3:04] <eggy> I'm not sure about this samsung charger
[3:05] <SwK> I've thought about building a 5v source on a 'plate' and adding a bit of extra capacitor to it for handling things like USB load spike
[3:05] <SwK> i have a cyberpower hub that handles it quite well
[3:06] <SwK> (even runs 3 Pi at the same time with no issues)
[3:06] <eggy> I would buy a 'recommended' one, I don't know the electrical stuff to bother 'making my own' ;)
[3:07] <SwK> my only concern is are the traces in the board heavy enough to handle bringing power in from P1
[3:08] <SwK> and I by pass the input polyfuse but that loss of protection is easy enough for me to account for
[3:09] <epoch_> Would using an AT power supply for a RasPi be a bad idea?
[3:09] <SwK> that could work
[3:09] <pksato> no.
[3:10] * xtaylor (taylor@unaffiliated/xtaylor) Quit (Ping timeout: 245 seconds)
[3:10] <epoch_> Ok, good. I like the built-in power switch it has. :P
[3:10] * scummos (~sven@p4FDCFA96.dip.t-dialin.net) Quit (Ping timeout: 256 seconds)
[3:10] <epoch_> I measured the 5v output and it was 5.5 I think.
[3:11] <pksato> my experiment with atx and rpi http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jgFh6yLe6Os&list=UU8yk0zzpUQu-yDpBZwvuoYA&index=1
[3:11] <SwK> that might make the 5v reg on the pi run a little warm tho
[3:11] <epoch_> I'll try a couple different supplies for a more 5v 5v output than 5.5v.
[3:12] <SwK> pksato: you should see my bench supply lol
[3:14] <SwK> ATX PSU with some low ohm power resistors on the 5v rail (most ATX PSUs need about 10W of load to really stabilize), then a set of banana jacks for +12v -12v +5 and +3.3
[3:14] <pksato> other video http://youtu.be/hDdpY8GT-_c
[3:14] <eggy> I've noted raspbian will stop using the wifi if I plugin an ethernet cord

[4:45] <edman007> yea, depends who you ordered it from, allied was, MCM wasn't
[4:46] <edman007> so I got tired of waiting, ordered from MCM...and now I have two, all well, i'll find a use for that

[5:11] <buzzsaw> hum... I need GPS data for my rPi any sugestions?
[5:13] <epoch_> The only stuff I hear about GPS is that ESR was trying to get some cheap GPS thing made.
[5:14] <epoch_> I'll see if it got finished and is available yet...
[5:14] <buzzsaw> this is $40 http://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-ultimate-gps-on-the-raspberry-pi
[5:14] <buzzsaw> guess thats kind of cheap
[5:18] <epoch_> GR-600. haven't found a price for it yet.
[5:18] <edman007> buzzsaw, actually, parallax has some for under $40
[5:19] <buzzsaw> ah
[5:19] <buzzsaw> I wonder if I could hack out some of the broken boards at work :-s
[5:20] <buzzsaw> I have not ordered one yet "just about to" has anyone played with the wifi in rfmonitor mode yet?
[5:20] <buzzsaw> I hear the device is a bit slow
[5:21] <edman007> heh, i just bought a wifi/ethernet dongle from china, $8.50 or so...shipped
[5:21] <SwK> loose solder connection + software for wrong MCP230XX chip strikes again
[5:21] <SwK> lol
[5:21] <edman007> and no drivers
[5:22] <SwK> no drivers? lol
[5:22] * edman007 has what is ending up to be a $300 IO board that should be up and running in a few weeks for his RPi
[5:22] <buzzsaw> I just ordered a AWUS036H today :-)
[5:22] <SwK> for $8.4 in hardware you can write your own drivers heh
[5:23] <buzzsaw> I know debian and kali run but what other distros have people played around with?
[5:23] <edman007> SwK, it's an access point, flip the switch and it just makes the ethernet port a wifi port...configed through a web interface
[5:23] <SwK> edman007: my little IE board much cheaper then 300 tho heh
[5:23] <SwK> edman007: nice
[5:23] <SwK> http://imgur.com/a/zPZyp IO board even???
[5:24] <SwK> buzzsaw: thats what is making me have a bruise on my forehead
[5:24] <epoch_> buzzsaw, I'm using Arch right now.
[5:25] <edman007> SwK, meh, well it's got a ~160W PSU, 10 @ 1A/12V motor reversable motor drivers, 12v/2A x2 LED drivers, 4 servo drivers at @3A... gryo, compass, accelerometer, rtc, absolute pressure
[5:25] <buzzsaw> I want to build a datamining wardriving kit and the rpi looks like it might be a good controler for it :-)
[5:25] <edman007> making an RC submarine
[5:26] <edman007> with video, ballast tanks, and functing underwater nav
[5:26] <fr0g911> hey anyone care to see if they can connect to my ircd running on the pi
[5:26] <fr0g911> i dont have an outside computer
[5:26] <buzzsaw> sure why not...
[5:26] <IncognitoMan> edman007: ive always wanted to make one like that lol
[5:27] <edman007> IncognitoMan, if the board design is good I'm willing to sell some of it, need to recoup costs, lol
[5:27] <IncognitoMan> edman007: refering to the sub
[5:27] <edman007> and I think I'm getting 10 boards from the PCB fab
[5:27] <edman007> IncognitoMan, ahh, yea, well it's working out to about $1000
[5:27] <IncognitoMan> rc stuff is fun....especially when its able to do more than just basic movement :P
[5:28] <SwK> edman007: nice
[5:28] <SwK> edman007: what gyro are you using?
[5:28] <edman007> IncognitoMan, yea, I'm taking some crazy risks, I already ordered the PCB, and I didn't breadboard the parts
[5:28] <edman007> A3G4250D
[5:29] <fr0g911> you get that buzzsaw
[5:29] <SwK> edman007: are those the export restricted ones? heh
[5:29] <epoch_> fr0g911, what's the IRC server?
[5:29] <fr0g911> irc.ruined-irc.net
[5:30] <fr0g911> 3 pi's running it
[5:30] <edman007> SwK, I don't think so...I didn't try exporting it though
[5:30] <epoch_> load-balanced?
[5:30] <fr0g911> sweet thx man
[5:30] <fr0g911> yup
[5:31] <fr0g911> im gonna drop about 200+ users to it
[5:31] <fr0g911> and see what happens
[5:31] <IncognitoMan> lol
[5:31] <IncognitoMan> i might turn one into a PSO ship server
[5:31] <IncognitoMan> but i need to run bsd on it to do that
[5:31] <fr0g911> whats that
[5:31] <SwK> http://i.imgur.com/Zg7VIIp.jpg thats how you install pull up resistors right? lol
[5:32] <edman007> SwK, we shall see how good I can get it, this is essentially what I work on for a full time job, lol
[5:32] <SwK> edman007: nice
[5:32] <edman007> though those gryos are absolutely export controlled
[5:32] <SwK> are you in the states?
[5:32] <edman007> yea
[5:33] <SwK> heh I was looking at some adafruit sells on a i2c board big note not for export dont even try
[5:34] <edman007> SwK, the ones are work are so sensitivitive they rotate them on the tests platforms and you can see the earth spinning in the outputs
[5:34] <buzzsaw> fr0g911: get what?
[5:34] <SwK> nice
[5:35] <edman007> SwK, anyways, if this nav stuff is working good I might just make a RPi nav library/hw doesn't seem to be anything really good out there, I could probably sell that
[5:35] <edman007> looks like at $50-60 total I could probably get a decent profit if my current config works for just nav type stuff
[5:35] <epoch_> I'd install BSD on my Pi but I don't have another thing that can do a 3.3v serial console.

[5:36] <SwK> edman007: I wish people would put those gyros w/ some accelerometers into like a tomtom or something so when I'm driving int he city and the GPS loses lock I can go on to inertial nav

[5:39] <SwK> I'm in the states
[5:39] <edman007> ahh
[5:39] <SwK> so I'm not worried about that
[5:39] <edman007> then no need, lol
[5:40] <SwK> newark wants $22 for that part lol
[5:40] <edman007> heh
[5:41] <SwK> goes to show gotta shop for parts sometimes
[5:41] <buzzsaw> your irc server seems to work
[5:42] <edman007> SwK, I didn't shop around, just picked digikey because I like them for parts and bought there

[12:35] <gordonDrogon> is that when you put the rgb strips at the back of the TV?
[12:35] <Bochi> or is it a one strip solution?
[12:35] <mgbowman> I have 5m but you can trim every 2 leds

[12:35] <Bochi> yeah, but still, how does the rasp know what KED is where
[12:35] <Bochi> LED
[12:36] <mgbowman> I'll make 4 strips and wire some 4-pin 90 deg connectors
[12:36] <mgbowman> boblight does
[12:36] <Bochi> it does? ok
[12:36] <mgbowman> it's serial communication
[12:36] <gordonDrogon> some of the RGB controllers are clever.
[12:36] <Bochi> so its basically the same as sedu-light but WAY cheaper

[12:36] <mgbowman> Bochi: yes if you're not scared to get your hands dirty
[12:36] <gordonDrogon> some have weird timings that just won't work on the Pi.
[12:36] <mgbowman> gordonDrogon: it is
[12:37] <mgbowman> this is more a prototype
[12:37] <Bochi> mgbowman: absolutely not, I am going to order 2 pis anyway because I have a talent to break them
[12:37] <Bochi> (already killed 3)
[12:37] <Bochi> :P
[12:37] <mgbowman> the "production" circuit will be based on an arduino uno
[12:37] <mgbowman> + I have a spare pi
[12:37] <mgbowman> so I'm not worried about bricking it
[12:38] <Bochi> nice pointer, thanks

[13:34] <tinti> gotdonDrogon: really nice. Thank you.
[13:35] <gordonDrogon> tinti, I'd suggest that even with that it's not the best platform for 'hard' real-time control though, but it might work for you.

[13:39] <mgottschlag> either directly or through that circuit, but connecting them directly shouldn't do any harm
[13:40] <gordonDrogon> dreamreal, I'm not sure you can get the Pi's uart to talk at proper midi speeds ...
[13:41] <mgottschlag> gordonDrogon: you can set the frequency very flexibly
[13:41] <gordonDrogon> let me know how.

[13:41] <gordonDrogon> as its something I keep getting asked.
[13:41] <mgottschlag> let me look that up
[13:42] <mgottschlag> I only did it from the videocore site through the miniuart, and that one has a frequency divider register which can take any possible value
[13:42] <gordonDrogon> it's not a standard divider that unix knows about - from what Iv'e read you need to change the clock divider frequency that drives the uart and maybe other things too.
[13:42] <gordonDrogon> I'm actually considering putting together a little addon board with a pair of uarts fixed to sandard midi baud rate.
[13:43] <dreamreal> okay, odd - it says it can't open /dev/ttyAMA0
[13:43] <gordonDrogon> dreamreal, add 'dialout' to 'pi' in /etc/group
[13:43] <mgottschlag> gordonDrogon: actually, that article above seems to describe it
[13:43] <gordonDrogon> then logout/login again.
[13:43] <mgottschlag> init_uart_clock in config.txt

[13:45] <Megaf> hi folks, I found a good used for my rpi, replacing my adsl router DHCP server and use it as DNS and HTTP (lighttpd) server
[13:46] <dreamreal> which file? /dev/ttyAMA0?
[13:46] <mgottschlag> yes
[13:46] <dreamreal> 550 root,tty
[13:46] <mgottschlag> then either sudo or adding your user to tty should actually work
[13:46] <mgottschlag> no idea why sudo doesn't work
[13:47] <dreamreal> yeah, something funky this way ... exists
[13:47] <gordonDrogon> dreamreal, root,tty for /dev/ttyAMA0? Odd - it's usually root,dialout

[13:47] <gordonDrogon> dreamreal, or are you running something other than Raspbian?
[13:48] <mgottschlag> it might also be possible that something is locking the file
[13:48] <dreamreal> nah, running raspbian

[13:50] <gordonDrogon> A124, run less programs on it then.
[13:50] <dreamreal> now let's see
[13:50] * moogen (~moogen@112.sub-174-251-1.myvzw.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[13:50] * deffrag (~Dedec@unaffiliated/deffrag) has joined #raspberrypi
[13:50] * deffrag_ (~Dedec@unaffiliated/deffrag) Quit (Ping timeout: 264 seconds)
[13:51] <A124> gordonDrogon: Um.. What Should I kill then?
[13:51] <dreamreal> so with echo off, running minicom should give me the content as I type it, right?
[13:51] <dreamreal> just once?
[13:51] <gordonDrogon> A124, I've no idea - hard to know what you're using it for...
[13:51] <gordonDrogon> dreamreal, if you loop tx^rx ..
[13:51] * athanor (~athanor@12.131.0.2) has joined #raspberrypi
[13:52] <A124> gordonDrogon: cli :P 35MB is way lot
[13:52] <mgottschlag> dreamreal: yes
[13:52] * tektsu (~Adium@wsip-174-79-34-244.ph.ph.cox.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[13:52] <gordonDrogon> A124, it's not a microcontroller - it's a Linux PC. Expect it to use more memory, need more resources ..
[13:53] <A124> gordonDrogon: Nah. I run my x86 comp on 11MB
[13:53] <gordonDrogon> A124, you just need to learn to work with those resources.
[13:53] <gordonDrogon> A124, 11MB to run X11 in? Well done.
[13:53] <A124> I said cli :P
[13:53] <dreamreal> okay, still odd
[13:53] <gordonDrogon> ok
[13:53] <A124> Also Speaking of RPi, it's cli
[13:53] <dreamreal> A124: which shell
[13:54] <dreamreal> I hooked up a multimeter to TX/GND, get 3.3v... sending 'U' to /dev/ttyAMA0 at 100 baud doesn't change that data
[13:54] <gordonDrogon> dreamreal, it's unlikely to show on a multimeter.
[13:54] <A124> dreamreal: sh
[13:54] <dreamreal> and it's, um, very fast, which doesn't sound valid
[13:55] <dreamreal> A124: on the pi *now*?
[13:55] <gordonDrogon> dreamreal, if minicom isn't echoing characters then there is something amis.
[13:55] <A124> dreamreal: No, on Pi it's bash
[13:55] <athanor> Plenty of gui for RasPi. I just put Bodhi on a VM, and strongly considering trying it on the Pi. It feels so smooth on here (until I open a Java IDE, which I'd never try on the Pi).
[13:55] <dreamreal> A124: I think your requirements are unrealistic for the pi
[13:55] <gordonDrogon> ARM instruction set might not be as efficient as x86 instructions, so might need a bit more RAM.
[13:56] <dreamreal> gordonDrogon: hmm, I wonder how to debug it
[13:56] * dreamreal is just musing
[13:56] <mgottschlag> dreamreal: what exactly did you connect?
[13:56] <dreamreal> I have some newer rpis on the way, but I really want to hit this milestone today
[13:56] <mgottschlag> just a wire from one pin to the other?
[13:56] <A124> dreamreal: Wow. Nice to hear. I like doing 'unrealistic' things ;)
[13:56] <gordonDrogon> dreamreal, I just put a jumper between tx & rx and run minicom - baud rate doesn't matter, but turn off hardware handshake.
[13:56] <dreamreal> mgottschlag: well, right now it's just TX and GND connected to a multimeter
[13:56] <dreamreal> A124: *shrug* so fix it
[13:56] * omgmog (~omgmog@109.204.123.35) Quit (Quit: Computer has gone to sleep.)
[13:56] <gordonDrogon> dreamreal, there's also a test program in wiringPi if you want.
[13:57] <A124> dreamreal: So what? .. That's my decision :P
[13:57] <dreamreal> I don't know what the value of unused ram is, honestly; unless you need it for something else, why worry about it?
[13:57] <dreamreal> A124: sure, and your consequence. Fix it!
[13:57] <A124> blah blah blah
[13:57] <A124> Thre is nothing to fix
[13:57] <mgottschlag> dreamreal: yeah, a multimeter won't show anything, maybe a drop from 3.3V to a bit less if you pipe random data into the tty
[13:57] <gordonDrogon> so live with it.
[13:57] * dRbiG (drbig@unhallowed.pl) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[13:57] <A124> Maybe myself :-/
[13:57] <dreamreal> mgottschlag: that's what I was looking for, actually :/
[13:58] <gordonDrogon> dreamreal, try a string of control-@'s.
[13:58] <dreamreal> okay, serialTest *worked* with loopback
[13:58] * m8 (~mor@unaffiliated/m8) has joined #raspberrypi
[13:58] <parasciidic> any reason for xorg to crap out when i'm opening a window in fluxbox on raspi?
[13:58] * mythos (~mythos@unaffiliated/mythos) Quit (Ping timeout: 248 seconds)
[13:58] <dreamreal> so I'll look at that and try to see what I'm screwing up
[13:59] <parasciidic> segfaults with a FBDEV(0): FBIOBLANK: Operation not permitted
[13:59] <parasciidic> xorg is 1.14, distro is arch
[13:59] <dreamreal> ah, I wasn't calling wiringPiSetup()
[13:59] <gordonDrogon> dreamreal, hm. you shouldn't need to call wiringPiSetup for just the serial port...
[14:00] * com_kieffer (~com_kieff@151.66.63.209) Quit (Ping timeout: 264 seconds)
[14:02] <dreamreal> hmm
[14:02] <gordonDrogon> unless you're using other IO pins that is ...
[14:03] <gordonDrogon> Ah, if you're using millis() or delay() then you do need a wiringPiSetup() and you can use wiringPiSetupSys() if you don't want to be root.
[14:03] <dreamreal> I'm not :/
[14:03] <gordonDrogon> ok
[14:04] <gordonDrogon> I just noticed that serialTest does...
[14:04] <dreamreal> Eventually I'll be using I2C but that's a separate milestone
[14:04] <gordonDrogon> I2C for midi?

[14:07] <gordonDrogon> :)
[14:08] <A124> RPi is just huuuge on memory
[14:08] <A124> Because of.. debian core that is in full strangth
[14:08] <Hodapp> wow, usbip has been in the mainline kernel and I never realized. derp.
[14:09] <neilr> A124: don't use Debian then
[14:09] * Bochi (bochi@nat/suse/x-vdpieffwhiieonaa) Quit (Quit: Adee)
[14:09] <Julius-ZM> Hi guys, :-)
[14:09] <A124> neilr: Nah. If don't run into driver problems etc. I'll might swap when I need those MBytes :P
[14:09] <Julius-ZM> I'm a newbie with raspberry pi ...
[14:09] * pksato (~PEBKAC@unaffiliated/pksato) has joined #raspberrypi
[14:11] <Julius-ZM> Is it possible to have more OS on the SD card? like openelec, raspbian, armarch
[14:11] <Julius-ZM> ?
[14:11] <ShiftPlusOne> look up berryboot
[14:11] <Hodapp> Julius-ZM: Sorta. Look into berryboot.
[14:11] * IT_Sean (~Ult_Ubunt@applefritter/IRCStaff/UltimateMacUser1) has joined #raspberrypi
[14:11] <Julius-ZM> Thanks a lot!
[14:11] * ChanServ sets mode +o IT_Sean
[14:12] <Hodapp> hrmm, I'm on Raspbian, but I've not updated in awhile and I'm wondering if there's a straightforward way to get the kernel source for this specific version so I need not get source for a totally different one
[14:12] <Hodapp> need to build a module that's not default
[14:13] <ShiftPlusOne> Not quite getting the question. What's the concern? Why can't you just download the source from github and compile it with the settings you need?
[14:13] <Hodapp> I'm avoiding building an entirely new kernel.
[14:14] <dreamreal> okay, I can replicate the serialTest, albeit at a much lower baud rate
[14:14] <ShiftPlusOne> You want to just build the module and want to make sure that it works with existing module then?
[14:14] <ShiftPlusOne> (rxisting kernel
[14:14] <ShiftPlusOne> *existing
[14:14] <Hodapp> I want to use the module.
[14:16] <ShiftPlusOne> you _should_ be fine just downloading the kernel from github, copying the config from /proc, enabling the module, compiling and copying the module across. It might not be that easy though. I usually prefer to build the kernel and modules at the same time if I can help it.
[14:16] <gordonDrogon> dreamreal, using your own code?

[14:21] * mpmc is now known as mpmc|Away
[14:21] <gordonDrogon> ok, good!
[14:22] <gordonDrogon> A124, there's really no point complaining here about lack of memory, or memory bloat by applications. Compliain about generic linux (on other forums, etc.) if you want to complain about that. We here mostly just accept what it is - a nice little ?30 Linux PC and get on with it.
[14:23] * FREDR1K (~gaahl@h112n3-aepv-a31.ias.bredband.telia.com) Quit (Ping timeout: 258 seconds)
[14:24] <mgottschlag> OpenWRT is able to run on routers with 32MB RAM and less, the same should be possible on the pi as well of course, you just have to build it yourself, and you have to accept some drawbacks
[14:25] <gordonDrogon> indeed.
[14:25] <gordonDrogon> hard to do that on something more general purpose though.
[14:25] <A124> gordonDrogon: Not complaining.. just sayin
[14:25] <Hodapp> There were guides on tldp.org about how to boot Linux on 2 MB laptops. Run old old Linux all you want.
[14:25] <Triffid_Hunter> Hodapp: problem is, you need to be using the same toolchain to compile a module against an existing kernel binary.. fwiw, my rpi has /proc/config.gz available
[14:26] <gordonDrogon> A124, you're saying to those who know though - we know this and live with it.
[14:26] <Hodapp> Triffid_Hunter: It is things like this that I was afraid of
[14:26] <A124> You are arguing with me all the time
[14:26] * audiodef (~quassel@pool-71-191-172-210.washdc.fios.verizon.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[14:26] <A124> Or someone else
[14:26] <gordonDrogon> oh you want an argument?
[14:26] <A124> So.. it was a reply
[14:26] <A124> omfg
[14:27] <Hodapp> ...
[14:27] <A124> Can't you just throw it off?
[14:27] <gordonDrogon> A124, this is a family friendly channel and that gets you a warning.
[14:27] <Jck_true> TCCBOOT? A boatloader that compiles your linux kernel during boot time...
[14:27] <dreamreal> A124: well, I think at this point maybe the point's been belabored too much
[14:27] <A124> Warning for what?
[14:27] <A124> I don't want any argument.
[14:27] * ozymandias_ (~josephby@24.246.89.4) Quit (Quit: ozymandias_)
[14:27] <gordonDrogon> not using family friendly language.
[14:27] <A124> You keep pushing me.
[14:27] <dreamreal> the pi is what it is, the kernel uses what it uses, if you want to fix it, please do so
[14:27] <dreamreal> you're not being pushed
[14:27] * _cheney (~cheney@nat.sierrabravo.net) Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[14:27] <Hodapp> Triffid_Hunter: http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?p=121691 - I'm attempting the instructions from 'secretagent' here
[14:27] <A124> Oh my friendly god?
[14:28] <A124> That's not friendly?
[14:28] <Hodapp> That's not what "omfg" stands for, and you know it.
[14:28] <gordonDrogon> just drop it, ok?
[14:28] <dreamreal> um, yeah, "friendly" is what you meant, and you're the only person ever to use that rendering for that phrase
[14:29] <A124> Some people here are trying to be contructive, while some are going to conceal it in 'you can't say whether I'm polite or not' bombardment or poking possibly generating a dispute.
[14:30] <dreamreal> I'm trying to be constructive in saying "fix it and stop complaining"
[14:30] <gordonDrogon> indeed. you're complaining about the size of programs on the Pi. We know this. It's not going away. Deal with it.
[14:30] <gordonDrogon> or fix it.
[14:30] <A124> gordonDrogon: First you poke me again and again, and then after not dropping it when asked, you continue and later asking me to drop off?
[14:31] <A124> I just stated it's the kernel, to confirm that. Nothing else
[14:31] <gordonDrogon> nothing to stop you compiling your own.
[14:31] * neilr mentions RISC OS again :)
[14:31] <A124> Your hitting on me will maybe
[14:31] <dreamreal> A124: please stop
[14:31] <dreamreal> just fix it
[14:32] <ShiftPlusOne> Why are we ganging up on A124 here?
[14:32] <dreamreal> we're not
[14:32] <A124> Only you, gordonDrogon and dreamreal was actually hitting without no reason.
[14:32] <Hodapp> I fail to see how we are.
[14:32] <gordonDrogon> Who? I'm ignoring him now.
[14:32] <dreamreal> hitting?
[14:32] <dreamreal> How is anyone "hitting" you?
[14:32] <Hodapp> He's like that hotwings doof that kept PMing me and telling me that I was going to get banned.
[14:33] <ShiftPlusOne> I don't think I said anything... I was just jumping in to point out that people are ganging up on you for no reason, but hey.
[14:33] <A124> Thanks to all people that had constructive feedback, such as Hodapp, ShiftPlusOne, Jck_true, Triffid_Hunter, mgottschlag, Julius-ZM, neilr
[14:34] <Hodapp> I don't think I provided any, but nice try.
[14:34] * ShiftPlusOne is confused and goes back to doing whatever it is he does.
[14:34] <dreamreal> I'm not sure how my feedback wasn't ("it is what it is, if you don't think it's correct, you should fix it") but whatever
[14:34] <Hodapp> wait a minute, why am I pulling the entire git repo just to get one specific kernel version?
[14:34] <Hodapp> these instructions seems a little unneeded.
[14:34] <A124> Hodapp: I would cite you, but no reason :P
[14:35] <dreamreal> ... just like the rest of the conversation around executable size :)
[14:35] <A124> dreamreal: Your feedback to rate as constructive rates for a retarded person.
[14:35] <A124> At least for me, sorry for that.
[14:36] <dreamreal> A124: and yet *I'm* supposed to be "hitting on" you. *sigh*
[14:37] <Hodapp> that is a LOT to transfer over my tiny connection when I could just get a ZIP file of the latest rev.
[14:37] * FREDR1K (~gaahl@h112n3-aepv-a31.ias.bredband.telia.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[14:37] <dreamreal> Hodapp: indeed :)
[14:37] <A124> I even appologize and you still have the urge. I'm ingoring any unconctructive saying from your side from now on. It's just useless spamming and killing.
[14:37] <dreamreal> woot!
[14:37] <dreamreal> and now we have the first evidence of killing via irc!
[14:37] <mgottschlag> okay, everybody, could we please go back to normal business here?
[14:37] <dreamreal> sorry
[14:38] <ShiftPlusOne> Yeah, I think I am going to start kicking people that won't move on.
[14:38] <A124> ShiftPlusOne: Good idea.
[14:39] <ShiftPlusOne> So ahm, how about that weather, ey?
[14:39] <gordonDrogon> still raining here.

[14:40] <ShiftPlusOne> well my job is done here =p

[14:40] <neilr> mmm, looking at that, there's nowhere near enough tea drunk today.

[15:18] <nid0> time to place that order then!
[15:19] <buzzsaw> yeah then it comes back oh you have 2x on the way...
[15:21] <gordonDrogon> :)
[15:21] <IT_Sean> If they aren't showing an order in their system, i wouldn't hold your breath waiting for one to arrive.
[15:21] <buzzsaw> I have not purchased a SD card in quite some time, where is the best place to get them for inexpensive now days?
[15:21] <gordonDrogon> as long as thery only take payment once!
[15:21] <gordonDrogon> what country?
[15:22] <buzzsaw> IT_Sean: I worked for a company that processes orders :-) that is not always true ;-)

[15:31] <IT_Sean> ShadowJK: yes, it is.
[15:31] <A124> I would choose 4GB only if I were doing GPIO programming and stuff. Else it's generally better to get 8 or 16GB depending on you and use. :P
[15:31] <bacteu> ShadowJK: it can be powered through the usb ports in the later models
[15:31] <ShadowJK> IT_Sean; Model B ver 2?
[15:32] <buzzsaw> I will be collecting data on it so... on top of the OS I will neex some extra space
[15:32] <ShadowJK> uh, that was to bacteu
[15:32] <neilr> (I always wonder about how to pluralise 'pi' in a family friendly channel)
[15:32] <IT_Sean> ShadowJK: ALL the raspis use the same microUSB power goesinta
[15:32] <A124> neilr: That is smart.. but when one does not want's external.. then it's USB flashdisk.. or.. the SD card
[15:32] <nid0> buzzsaw: the os itself, with no X, will be in the ballpark of 1.2-1.4GB
[15:32] <neilr> A124: Yes, fair point - I use an external HDD just because I had one spare.
[15:32] <buzzsaw> nid0: I plan on running KALI on it just because :-)

[15:33] <ShadowJK> IT_Sean; weird. Ordered a usb - micro-a cable before I went sleep this morning, and the shop had emailed and asked if I was intending to use it for rPi because it wont work for that. When I didn't reply they sent it anyway :)

[15:41] <bacteu> ShadowJK: unfortunately not many devices use micro-usb-a anymore, it's be depreciated
[15:41] <Zencrypter> I'm actually interested in Barracudadrive but I'm also using Nginx now...
[15:41] <bacteu> Zencrypter: stick with nginx
[15:41] <Zencrypter> So since Barracudadrive uses its own server, I thought there would be a problem...
[15:42] <Zencrypter> Both can't be installed at the same time I think...
[15:42] <Zencrypter> bacteu, What do you mean?
[15:42] <nid0> they can be used at the same time, but either on different ports or using a proxy in front of them
[15:42] <Zencrypter> Ok...
[15:42] <Zencrypter> Well, I could use the HTTPS port to run Barracudadrive ! :)
[15:43] <Zencrypter> And that would be even better...

[15:44] <Zencrypter> buzzsaw, I don't think so...
[15:44] <buzzsaw> from what I understand class 10 is faster
[15:44] <bacteu> Zencrypter: perhaps this, http://barracudadrive.com/blog/2008/12
[15:44] <nid0> Edit or create bd.conf in the directory where you installed BD. Make sure the bd.conf file has the two following lines:
[15:44] <nid0> port=
[15:45] <nid0> and
[15:45] <nid0> sslport=
[15:45] <Zencrypter> nid0, Yeah :)
[15:45] <nid0> with the ports you want
[15:45] <bacteu> buzzsaw: yes, in general bigger is better
[15:45] <IT_Sean> class 10 is faster for sequential access. It will not necessarily be faster in a pi
[15:45] * mythos (~mythos@unaffiliated/mythos) has joined #raspberrypi
[15:45] <bacteu> class 10 is supposed to be slightly worse for smaller files like an OS would have

[15:56] <dreamreal> hmm, good idea
[15:57] <dreamreal> man, you're full of these, you should try to write stuff every now and then :)

[16:15] <IT_Sean> You may need a powered hub for that.
[16:15] <ShiftPlusOne> Yeah, you'll probably want to buy a supply then. It's hard to tell whether it will work just by the description
[16:15] <buzzsaw> yeah I will look for a powered hub at the thrift shops :-)
[16:15] <ShiftPlusOne> nuh, probably no hub needed, just make sure to plug the card in before powering the pi.
[16:16] <IT_Sean> Depends on the wifi thumb.

[17:08] <buzzsaw> it depends on what you mean by control your heating too :-)
[17:08] <neilr> Well, it's just for playing really - I have a few kicking around, that's all.
[17:08] <gordonDrogon> arduino - good, but less 'accessible' - Pi is almost (but not quite entirely like) Arduino with ethernet shield...

[17:12] <gordonDrogon> neilr, what kind of heaters - electric fan?
[17:12] <neilr> Assuming we ever see any sun. I know I'm being optimistic.
[17:12] <neilr> Not sure yet - like i say, just pondering ideas at the mo

[17:12] <buzzsaw> neilr: the amount of energy to move that panel is going to eat into what you generate :-)
[17:13] <buzzsaw> your best just to do the math and place in a optamised direction
[17:13] <neilr> I still have an inkling to build a jet engine out of an old turbo unit. Perhaps I can use that :)
[17:13] <gordonDrogon> it only needs a couple of watts.
[17:13] <gordonDrogon> to move a panel.
[17:13] <neilr> Oh, I know I could just leave it in one place. But where's the fun in that?
[17:13] <gordonDrogon> neilr, check the radio control forums, etc. full of interesting people making jets, etc. ....
[17:14] <buzzsaw> right... but your cost to gain is not all that good
[17:14] <neilr> Oh I know - I have a few EDF planes kicking around too
[17:14] <buzzsaw> quadcopter would be fun :-)
[17:14] <gordonDrogon> someone's got a quad flying via a Pi.
[17:14] <gordonDrogon> directly too.
[17:14] <buzzsaw> I have seen arduino boards doing it
[17:15] <neilr> mmm. Now, thinking about it, my EDF Hunter is big enough to carry a pi
[17:15] <neilr> No idea what I'd do with it though
[17:15] <gordonDrogon> buzzsaw, arducopter, etc. all good stuff. I had a project 18 months ago to do stuff like that.
[17:16] <buzzsaw> but really all you need is something to read accelerometer/gyro, then control the spead of thee motors
[17:16] <buzzsaw> there is a chineese knockoff that I was looking at

[17:19] <buzzsaw> why 8 over 4?
[17:20] <buzzsaw> just wondering
[17:20] <IT_Sean> because moar
[17:20] <RiXtEr> Moar Pei!
[17:20] <neilr> Oooh, that's cool. I like that.
[17:21] <gordonDrogon> buzzsaw, we needed to be able to cope with failure of any one motor and possibly 2. we were looking at a 6 motor and 8 motor platform. the payload was several Kg.
[17:21] <buzzsaw> ah
[17:22] <IT_Sean> "several"? 3? 10? 15? 20?
[17:22] <gordonDrogon> several 1000? of expensive camera kit, etc.
[17:22] <buzzsaw> hum... that might be fun... Using rPi+ SDR to communicate with 2m or 70cm :-)

[17:27] <gordonDrogon> RiXtEr, yes, but not transparently (yet). it's actually on my to-do list for wiringPi, but if you're writing your own software then you'll need to communicate between the Pis - somehow.
[17:28] <gordonDrogon> RiXtEr, it might be easier to use one Pi with one of the GPIO expansion chips - e.g. mcp23s17, etc.

[17:51] <buzzsaw> so is controlling i/o on the pi difficult?
[17:51] <buzzsaw> I have not actually used one before, or seen other than on the internet
[17:51] <SpeedEvil> depends what you mean
[17:51] <buzzsaw> well for example:
[17:51] <SpeedEvil> raising/lowering certain pins - no
[17:51] <Twist-> gordonDrogon: neat. I didn't know about these.
[17:52] * mgottschlag (~quassel@reactos/tester/phoenix64) has joined #raspberrypi
[17:52] <SpeedEvil> running external peripherals using weird protocols can get involved
[17:52] <buzzsaw> With controlling a LCD, taking advantages of switches
[17:52] <gordonDrogon> I think controlling IO on the Pi is easy, but I've spent the past year (nearly) doing it...
[17:52] <SpeedEvil> depending on the LCD, impossible
[17:53] <buzzsaw> the same LCD that I might use lets say with an MCU using spi
[17:53] <gordonDrogon> I'm about to emulate the adafruit one with switches (might just buy one though)
[17:53] <SpeedEvil> if it's your standard 2*16 char LCD, or similar, not a problem
[17:54] <gordonDrogon> in my wiringPi world, I've reduced everything I know about to a simple 'pin' type definition.
[17:54] <gordonDrogon> so add in a shift register and you get 8 more pins...
[17:54] * NIN101 (~NIN@p5DD28DC9.dip0.t-ipconnect.de) has joined #raspberrypi
[17:54] <gordonDrogon> and you just digitalWrite () to any bit in that shift register and the stuff underneath takes care of it for you.
[17:54] <buzzsaw> okay
[17:55] <buzzsaw> similar to whats done with an arduino.
[17:55] <SpeedEvil> basically
[17:55] <SpeedEvil> if you can do it with ardsuino, you can do it with pi
[17:55] * K4k (~K4k@unaffiliated/k4k) has joined #raspberrypi
[17:55] <buzzsaw> thats kind of what I was wondering.
[17:55] <gordonDrogon> mostly.
[17:55] <SpeedEvil> though in some cases, timing is a problem
[17:56] <buzzsaw> ah
[17:56] <gordonDrogon> indeed.
[17:56] <buzzsaw> why is that?
[17:56] <SpeedEvil> with arduino, it's not a problem doing 18000 1ms things in a row
[17:56] <gordonDrogon> the underlying Pi hardware has dynamic RAM and a GPU.
[17:56] <SpeedEvil> with pi, other tasks will gain priority and do stuff
[17:56] <gordonDrogon> the GPU refreshes the RAM and updated the video. This steals time from the ARM.
[17:56] <K4k> Hi, when I boot my pi I get the following message: "PANIC: no init found. Try passing init= option to the kernel" I'm running rasbian wheezy.
[17:56] <SpeedEvil> and that
[17:57] <K4k> it ran fine for several weeks and then stopped responding to ping so I rebooted it
[17:57] <gordonDrogon> I can do 18,000 1mS times without any issue though.
[17:57] * Julius-ZM (~Julius-ZM@unaffiliated/julius-zm) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[17:57] <gordonDrogon> K4k, sounds like you've lost the root filing system - sd card corruption maybe.
[17:57] <buzzsaw> so then there are still times when a simple MCU might be easer ;-)
[17:57] <SpeedEvil> gordonDrogon: without one hitting 3ms?
[17:57] <gordonDrogon> yes.
[17:57] <K4k> gordonDrogon: I thought so too so I plugged the card into my laptop and I can still read the card just fine. I ran fsck on the card, it found and corrected several errors.
[17:58] <gordonDrogon> SpeedEvil, you can never be certian with Linux, but for the most part, yes.
[17:58] <gordonDrogon> K4k, see if /sbin/init exists though. tht's what it's looking for.
[17:58] <gordonDrogon> SpeedEvil, you run a thread in realtime & high priority.
[17:58] * violet-rpi (~quassel@78-22-180-177.access.telenet.be) has joined #raspberrypi
[17:58] <SpeedEvil> interesting
[17:59] <gordonDrogon> the main issues I have is sub 100?S timings.
[17:59] <K4k> gordonDrogon: yes, the file exists. Should I be able to view it in a text editor or is it a binary?
[17:59] <gordonDrogon> and then I can do it mostly accurately, but it runs the cpu in a busy loop.
[17:59] <gordonDrogon> K4k, it's binary.

[18:01] <gordonDrogon> K4k, maybe, but that's what it looks for anyway. however it could be that it's looking for a library that now doesn't exist.
[18:01] <gordonDrogon> K4k, so /sbin/init needs 3 or 4 librarys and if they're missing, then it's still game-over...
[18:01] * Paraxial (~paraxial@217.40.247.105) Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[18:02] <K4k> Any chance you know what those are so I can look for them? I am only asking because I'm confused that this keeps happening every few weeks. I have a very well known brand, C10 SD card so I would be very surprised if it is bad already seeing as how I haven't had it all that long.
[18:04] <gordonDrogon> K4k, http://unicorn.drogon.net/init.txt
[18:04] <gordonDrogon> K4k, however there are many sources of SD corruption - e.g. overclocking, poor power supply...
[18:05] <gordonDrogon> thos are the ones that have 'hit' me in the past. half decent PSU and no overclocking and I've not had an issue for 6 months or more now.
[18:06] <K4k> gordonDrogon: I had it overclocked when I was running Arch, and that did cause some issues so when I re-built with rasbian I left it at stock speeds.
[18:06] <K4k> The PSU I'm using seems to be well within the recommended specs and is not a cheapo brand from ebay or something.
[18:06] <gordonDrogon> K4k, no idea what to suggest then - make sure it's updated, etc. seatch the forums, etc. for your SD card, etc...
[18:06] <K4k> yup

[19:28] <converge> I need to set up a basic firewall on my business, is it a good idea use something like a raspberry pi firewall to control 20 computers ?
[19:29] <IT_Sean> you do know that the raspi only has one network interface, right?
[19:29] <buzzsaw> It might make a nice IDS :-) but firewall/IPS nah...
[19:29] <converge> no.. never had one
[19:29] <DeliriumTremens> IT_Sean: i've seen people use it as a router with a usb --> ethernet
[19:30] <IT_Sean> You could do that, but the performance is less than ideal for a production environment.

[19:30] <buzzsaw> converge: why not get a proper firewall?
[19:31] <converge> buzzsaw: trying to find new/cheap ways to do basic stuffs..
[19:31] <buzzsaw> if cost is an issue. Check out ubiquiti's edgemax
[19:31] <buzzsaw> http://www.ubnt.com/edgemax
[19:32] <buzzsaw> and if cost is a REAL BIG issue... Go to the local thrift shops and find some old wrt54g wifi routers and load openwrt on them :-)
[19:33] <buzzsaw> converge: check this out http://www.microcom.us/erlite3.html $100 and its quite configurable.
[19:33] <converge> nice, I'll check it all
[19:33] <buzzsaw> your just asking for a dos attack on a rpi :-)
[19:34] <converge> I need it with low coast but I still need high performance because im runing an ERP inside this network
[19:34] <buzzsaw> ubiquiti has some very nice equiptment expecially for the price :-)
[19:34] <converge> *cost
[19:34] <IT_Sean> converge: the raspi is not going to be "high performance" as a firewall for 20 computers.
[19:35] <converge> good to know
[19:35] <buzzsaw> your going to need some switches to plug in that many computers but those are cheap...

[19:36] <buzzsaw> ?
[19:36] <buzzsaw> it depends on if you need managed or not I guess
[19:36] <fr0g911> thrift stores are very good for switchs
[19:36] <fr0g911> atleast the ones i goto

[19:36] <converge> buzzsaw: I need a static one, my router will do the job
[19:37] <buzzsaw> yeah that little router has a few different operating modes
[19:37] <buzzsaw> if you want... you can run it like a linux box :-)
[19:37] <buzzsaw> but it does have some network analytics built into it
[19:38] <converge> has openwrt a built in firewall ?

[20:11] <A124> Just to say. You were speaking against your own wordl.
[20:11] <IT_Sean> We never said we were friendly. We said we were family friendly.
[20:11] <dreamreal> haha
[20:12] <dreamreal> still on that. There're lots of channels with people who're easily offended like that. I don't understand it, myself.
[20:12] <A124> IT_Sean: Does not change a thing if it represented like that.

[20:17] <buzzsaw> dansan: is that like Dr Who and the angels?
[20:17] <dansan> hah! good one !
[20:17] <dreamreal> incidentally, apropos of nothing but still marvelously on topic, I think I have the RX/TX generating valid MIDI data now
[20:17] <buzzsaw> they no longer exsist when your looking at them?
[20:17] <IT_Sean> dansan: the best consumer source for mouse optics is probably from older optical mice.
[20:17] <dansan> buzzsaw: I'm scared of admiting it, but I don't know DrWho very well :( I have to ask my fiancee what that means when she gets home :)

[20:19] <dreamreal> I liked the Tom Baker ones
[20:19] <buzzsaw> dreamreal: sonic not universal...
[20:19] <dansan> I don't have netflix setup because I don't have a good windows computer to do it with and their stuff doesn't run on Wine
[20:19] <dreamreal> but after him, well....

[20:20] <dansan> oh yeah, and we have a PS3 now, we can do it from there I suppose
[20:20] <dreamreal> and the pi, someone should get netflx working on the pi
[20:20] <dansan> That would mean getting it to work on GNU/Linux
[20:20] <dansan> Which means wine
[20:20] <dreamreal> I don't know anything about netflix, personally

[20:37] <dansan> I've considered applying as a kernel programmer, but I want to learn the internals better (and get my big patch set through first)
[20:38] <dansan> I dunno if you follow LKML or anything, but I'm the guy with the very complicated "generic red-black tree" implementation
[20:38] <dreamreal> I don't; I'm not a kernel developer by any stretch of the imagination. My contributions to the kernel were of the "damn it SHUT THAT FSCKING BELL OFF" on my own source bases
[20:39] <dansan> But I'm new to working on something as large as the kernel, so they want to see it implemented in a very gradual set of patches, where the complexity is justified
[20:39] <dansan> HAHAH!!!!
[20:39] <dansan> Oh, that's good! :)
[20:39] <dreamreal> well, it was really simple - now it's actually part of the kernel (not my code, the functionality)
[20:39] <dansan> yeah, I know :)
[20:39] <dreamreal> but every kernel update I'd dig up the console code and disable the bell

[20:40] <dreamreal> so how do you build a "complicated red-black"?
[20:40] <dansan> oh nice! get snobby with me now! P):
[20:40] <dreamreal> tab was \t, \g is the bell
[20:41] <dansan> I need coffee
[20:41] <dreamreal> so what's this about a complicated red-black algorithm? What's it for, what makes it complicated?
[20:42] <dansan> But for the red-black tree, it's not about making it more complicated, it's about making it type-generic and without incurring a run-time overhead. I actually appear to have discovered a new technique in C programming, but it wasn't even possible until gcc, ehem, that is the GNU C Compiler? You know, that our Lord Richard Stalman started? Anyway, until they implemented this -findirect-inline optimization
[20:43] <dansan> Oh! even better, I could have said "Our Lord and Savior, Richard Stalman.. for thout name art holy and stuff"
[20:43] <dreamreal> blah blah blah. So the only thing necessary would be that the nodes be comparable somehow.
[20:43] <dansan> Basically, I applied C++ metapgramming principles to C in a way that many conventional C programmers hate (they call it dead-code tricks).

[20:44] <dansan> gordonDrogon: hello!
[20:44] * MrKeuner (~Kudret@unaffiliated/mrkeuner) has joined #raspberrypi
[20:44] <dreamreal> hey gordonDrogon - I think I got the baud rate thing working
[20:44] <gordonDrogon> dreamreal, excellent!
[20:45] <dansan> dreamreal: yeah, accessing the keys from a user-defined struct and comparing them. As well as other stuff like "does your tree allow duplicate keys?" and "Should your insert replace if it encounters an existing key or fail?" and also, "do you think that GNU should be an icecream flavor"
[20:45] <dreamreal> I haven't gotten an end-to-end working yet, but that's coming, I think
[20:45] <MrKeuner> hello, would like to install XBMC on my rasbian. Following this doc: http://www.raspbian.org/RaspbianXBMC I do not seem to have rpi-update, what is the proper way to get it?
[20:46] <dansan> hmm, for some reason, I don't think "GNU" would be a very good icecream flavor
[20:46] <jelly1> don't use rpi-update
[20:46] <jelly1> o?
[20:46] * mythos (~mythos@unaffiliated/mythos) has joined #raspberrypi
[20:46] <gyeben> why shouldn't he use rpi-update?
[20:46] <jelly1> hmm that guide
[20:46] <MrKeuner> what's wrong with rpi-update?
[20:47] <jelly1> time for a `whereis rpi-update`
[20:47] * mythos (~mythos@unaffiliated/mythos) Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[20:47] <gordonDrogon> apt-get install rpi-update
[20:48] <gordonDrogon> I haven't used it myself for some time though.
[20:48] <jelly1> if raspbian has it :P
[20:48] <MrKeuner> gordonDrogon, that doesn't work
[20:48] * jelly1 uses openelec <3
[20:48] <dansan> dreamreal: My implementation depends upon these parameters for the rbtree to be compile-time constants, so that gcc can "compile them out", resulting in generated code that is exactly as if you hand-coded it for a particular set of types. That's the part that's complicated, and even runs slower on older compilers
[20:48] <gordonDrogon> Ah, Mr. chod .... you there?
[20:49] * chod nods
[20:49] * xCP23x (~xCP23x@2.25.225.77) Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[20:49] <chod> is my board fscked?
[20:49] <dreamreal> dansan: nice
[20:49] <dreamreal> dansan: I do a lot of java where that's not necessary
[20:49] <dreamreal> gordonDrogon: incidentally, java on the rpi with hard fp is actually pretty workable
[20:50] <dreamreal> I wouldn't use it for gui at all, but still
[20:50] <gyeben> MrKeuner: you should follow the instructions at https://github.com/hexxeh/rpi-update to install the latest rpi-update
[20:50] <dansan> dreamreal: yeah, because java has generics support
[20:50] * QazzaQY2K (~chatzilla@c83-249-136-129.bredband.comhem.se) has joined #raspberrypi
[20:50] <dreamreal> dansan: :)
[20:51] <dreamreal> gordonDrogon: I used the pi as a test for a cluster node: gigaspaces running peer nodes on an amd quad-core and the rpi, farming tasks to available listeners
[20:51] <dansan> dreamreal: but in practice, everything is treated like a java.lang.Object and if you alter your bytecode, you can insert any type of Object into your type-specific container :)
[20:51] <dreamreal> theoretically you could scale horizontally, as many pis as you cared to add
[20:51] <gordonDrogon> chod, your board may be ok
[20:51] <chod> oh
[20:51] <gordonDrogon> dreamreal, I've no idea what that is (sorry)
[20:51] <dreamreal> dansan: although most coders wouldn't know how to do that really effectively... or they'd know how to screw it up royally
[20:51] <QazzaQY2K> hey guys.. I'm playing with a pre installed wordpress image.. when I try to access it through my WAN ip it looks for the old LAN ip as used when it was installed.. now I'm wondering how can I change the configured ip?
[20:51] <chod> sorry to point at your code
[20:51] <dreamreal> gordonDrogon: basically distributed computing
[20:51] <dansan> dreamreal: but when it comes down to it, it's the JIT that makes it perform so well
[20:51] <gordonDrogon> chod, I have a patch to wiringPi v2 if you'd like to test it..
[20:52] <chod> i can test
[20:52] <gordonDrogon> dreamreal, ok. I left that world some time back...
[20:52] <dansan> dreamreal: thankfully, you can't do it from java code, you have to binary-edit the bytecode :)
[20:52] <dreamreal> gordonDrogon: well, that world's partially what drove me to the pi in the first place: cheap nodes
[20:52] * optimusprimem (~debian@unaffiliated/optimusprimem) has left #raspberrypi
[20:53] <chod> dreamreal: how powerful is a pi compared to some dual core intel wotsit
[20:53] <dreamreal> chod: very "under"
[20:53] <chod> but i suppose its cost
[20:53] <dreamreal> yep
[20:53] <dreamreal> cost effectiveness is *really* high
[20:53] <gordonDrogon> chod, if you fetch http://unicorn.drogon.net/wiringPi-2.1.tgz and unpack/install it, then run that program ..

[20:53] <gordonDrogon> dreamreal, I've worked for 2 supercomputer companies in the past... fascinaiting stuff at the time.
[20:54] <dreamreal> gordonDrogon: which ones?
[20:54] <gordonDrogon> dreamreal, Meiko and ClearSpeed.
[20:54] <QazzaQY2K> anyone good with wordpress?
[20:55] <dreamreal> gordonDrogon: nice - I've done work with datasynapse, gridgain, terracotta, gigaspaces, and a few others (RHT now, obviously)
[20:55] <dreamreal> although they're all "soft" distribution and not hardware (I've also done some work with azul, which was FASCINATING)
[20:55] <gordonDrogon> dreamreal, never heard of them I'm afraid.
[20:56] <dreamreal> *nod* no worries
[20:56] <gordonDrogon> dreamreal, Meiko built systems out of Transputers, i860's and Sparcs. ClearSpeed developed a co-processor.
[20:56] <dreamreal> heh
[20:56] <dreamreal> the sparc was a great processor, honestly
[20:56] <dreamreal> not a great clock speed but still

[21:17] <chod> image not written ?
[21:17] <chod> to SD
[21:17] <K4k> The reboot appeared to be stuck, I waited a few minutes and pulled the power and plugged it back in
[21:17] <chod> ahhhh
[21:18] <K4k> I assume, and hope I'm wrong, that the card went corrupt as a result
[21:18] <K4k> but I can mount it on another machine ok
[21:18] <chod> did u see what it was stuck on?

[21:18] <K4k> well, what confused me was that all things appeared to indicate full power down
[21:19] <K4k> screen was out, lights were not active
[21:19] <IT_Sean> o_O

[21:46] <K4k> jffs and ubifs
[21:46] <gordonDrogon> IT_Sean, remarkably, none so-far.
[21:46] <IT_Sean> not even that one? the 3.3v short boot loop one?
[21:46] <mgottschlag> I am asking because I want to use a pi in an embedded context where the user isn't supposed to care about a clean shutdown :)
[21:47] <mgottschlag> I'll have a look at the flash based file systems
[21:47] <gordonDrogon> don't seem to have blown up an mcp23017 either despite me making them get very hot..
[21:47] <buzzsaw> well... sudo does have some advantages :-)
[21:47] <buzzsaw> it makes you *think*
[21:47] * IT_Sean keeps his raspi away from gordonDrogon
[21:47] <gordonDrogon> mgottschlag, I built a series of routers and PBXs that booted into RAM and ran from there... they were pretty good at having the plug pulled.
[21:47] <buzzsaw> and you can give sudo for some thing to some users and not other things for other users
[21:47] <gordonDrogon> IT_Sean, I can give you 2 gpio commands that'll reboot a Pi - most of the time..
[21:48] <K4k> mgottschlag: I looked into both before and I seem to remember it was going to be impossible to put / on jffs and ubifs, can't remember the reason I came to that conclusion though

[21:48] <A124> K4k: ubifs, interesting. Thanks. Not sure if suitable for Pi, but worth to mention
[21:49] <gordonDrogon> mgottschlag, I took the stand that voicemail was expendable and forces an fsck on the partition every boot and parameters were stored directly in a disk block
[21:49] <Mement> I basically have the most basic question, since I am rather new to using such hardware as a Raspberry Pi;
[21:49] <Mement> Can I plug the Pi in my desktop with the USB cable and play around with the system in a Virtual Machine?
[21:49] <K4k> udf would be interesting as well. I've been using it on flash drives as an alternative to FAT32, but never on a bootable system

[21:50] <steve_rox> you not mutilateing sega carts are you ? :-P
[21:51] <IT_Sean> K4k: is correct, Mement. You cannot interface between your Pi and your PC in the way you are thinking, but you can set up an entirely separate VM.

[21:53] <buzzsaw> ah wait :-) wong chan that was for kali :-)
[21:53] <Mement> Ok, but it is recommended to first enable incoming connections on the Pi itself, rather than do it through connecting with USB and set up with Virtual Machine.

[22:10] <chod> :D no worries, whats there is excellent
[22:10] <gordonDrogon> the others will depend on the actual module.

[22:41] <buzzsaw> okay
[22:41] <gordonDrogon> you don't 'swipe' though - either the Pi sends a command to the display that tells it which page to display, or the display itself can handle it without the Pi being involved.
[22:41] <buzzsaw> so then you might need something like a back and forth screen
[22:42] <buzzsaw> button

[22:42] <buzzsaw> sorry its almost the end of the day :-) word are just running around :-)

[22:48] <gordonDrogon> phw, challenging :)
[22:48] <phw> i hoped su much they were named, but they are not :(
[22:48] <gordonDrogon> phw I would guess that the white wire is pin 1.
[22:48] <gordonDrogon> but it depends on which way round you put it on the pi.
[22:49] <gordonDrogon> So if you put it on the pi facing away from the pi, and not over the top then it looks like white is 1, black is 2.
[22:49] <gordonDrogon> so white would be 3.3v, black would be 5v.
[22:49] <gordonDrogon> brown would be 0v.
[22:49] <buzzsaw> a tablet capable of linux would be preferable but...
[22:49] <gordonDrogon> that would be easy to verify with a multimeter.
[22:50] <buzzsaw> I think a system can be developed using a pi and that screen + a wifi card...
[22:50] <buzzsaw> power might be the only issue
[22:50] <gordonDrogon> buzzsaw, yes - the backlight takes the most juice.

[23:01] <gordonDrogon> there are tables online that I've found in the past - a lot depends on the wire, but for 30A you're looking at car battery jumper lead thicknesses...
[23:01] <ShadowJK> mgottschlag, I recommend 5 mm^2 cable, but it also depends on your voltage
[23:02] <ShadowJK> Lower voltage will mean more of the voltage lost, as a percentage
[23:03] <gordonDrogon> I^2 R loss.
[23:04] <mgottschlag> thx - is there any resource for such knowledge?
