[0:04] <tonyhughes> azeam my old neighbours was a backpackers with an open wifi and default admin password. I used it for six months, and set the admin password so no dirty backpacker would put a WPA key on. I worked out their plan via their ISP, and checked their usage, and I always stayed under 1GB of their 30GB lol
[0:06] <buzzsaw> I have 10129 entrys in my database :-) I will fireup sql when I get home and see who uses what :-)
[0:06] <azeam> hehe, I also had access to the router, once I screwed it up somehow I can't remember, so I could no longer access anything but after a couple of days they were kind enough to fix it (with the same password)

[0:45] <azeam> Gadgetoid: a few comments - I'm using another startup script on my vnc setup, maybe you should paste the contents of the startup script instead of a link to a file that needs to be changed? What is "vnc" in this line "sudo vnc /etc/init.d/znc", is that some non-standard editor I don't know about? You write that the web admin is not needed, personally I find it very easy to work with for setting stuff up and I think you could recommend it, at least f
[0:45] <azeam> or inexperienced users. Also noticed that the link to "Thin" at the top of the page goes to www.raspberrypi.org, otherwise good job! :)

[0:46] <Gadgetoid> vim = VI Improved, I've never heard of any other editors??? definitely not emacs or anything!
[0:46] <Gadgetoid> azeam: *facepalm*??? vnc
[0:47] <azeam> :)
[0:47] <Gadgetoid> azeam: Well spotted!

[0:48] * AeroNotix (~xeno@abob48.neoplus.adsl.tpnet.pl) Quit (Quit: Uploading hax.....)
[0:48] <Gadgetoid> I will also have to try the web admin, but on the Pi I'd be a little afraid of bloat
[0:49] <azeam> it happens ;) I guess the web admin can be a bit overkill if you just want a very simple setup but I haven't noticed any performance issues or anything like that from my pi
[0:49] <OpenSys> web admin use perl
[0:49] <OpenSys> perl it's evil
[0:50] <OpenSys> and also use apache
[0:50] <OpenSys> other evil

[0:50] <azeam> I'm not using apache
[0:51] <OpenSys> great
[0:52] <OpenSys> lots of sites and sysadmins are moving scripts from perl to python
[0:52] * m8 (~mor@unaffiliated/m8) Quit (Quit: Sto andando via)
[0:52] <OpenSys> rpi also use python for lot's of things
[0:53] * kcj (~casey@unaffiliated/kcj) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:53] <azeam> you can always install the web admin, set up the things you want and then remove it if you don't want it running 24/7
[0:53] <Armand> web admin ?
[0:53] <Gadgetoid> I hate Python somewhat less now I've been working on WiringPi2 in it for a few days
[0:53] <Gadgetoid> But I'm still eager to get back to Ruby
[0:53] <Armand> webmin ?

[0:54] <OpenSys> Gadgetoid, ruby it's other good language

[0:54] <azeam> "ZNC's web interface"
[0:54] <azeam> web frontend
[0:55] <azeam> is it in the znc-extra package? don't remember
[0:55] <eggy> is it possible for me to dd my 16gb card to a 32gb and re-expand the fs?
[0:56] <Armand> Ahh.. znc. Trivial stuff. :P
[0:56] <ShiftPlusOne> eggy, yes, 'course
[0:57] <eggy> how, I'm not that savy with dd ;)
[0:58] <ShiftPlusOne> dd like you would normally dd an image. Make sure neither of them are mounted and instead of specifying the image file to of= use the device (/dev/sdX or whatever it is)
[0:58] <ShiftPlusOne> Then you should be able to use raspi-config to expand it.
[0:58] <eggy> ah, ok
[0:58] <eggy> BS=4 ?
[0:59] <ShiftPlusOne> doesn't matter, I normally don't specify.
[0:59] <eggy> ok
[0:59] <OpenSys> yes but not dd
[0:59] <OpenSys> its resize2fs

[0:59] * pkrnj (~pkrnj@bas2-montreal47-1279443509.dsl.bell.ca) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:00] <eggy> I'm not worried about expanding right now, I'll need to use dd to copy the data to the new card
[1:00] <ShiftPlusOne> OpenSys, You may have misread the question (or maybe I have)
[1:00] <eggy> I need both ;-)
[1:00] <fr0g911> hey all
[1:01] * TomM_ (~quassel@unaffiliated/tommehm) Quit (Ping timeout: 246 seconds)
[1:01] <ShiftPlusOne> no need to resize2fs if the script will do it for you. If you do it manually, you have to fix the partition table first though.
[1:01] <ShiftPlusOne> 'morning fr0g911
[1:01] * CR_Sean (~user@applefritter/IRCStaff/UltimateMacUser1) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:01] <fr0g911> morning ShiftPlusOne
[1:02] <azeam> ShiftPlusOne: if you don't specify bs it will default to 512 bytes and take ages, doesn't it? 1M is what I normally use
[1:02] <OpenSys> ShiftPlusOne, dd copy bit at bit, its move safe use cp to copy all data
[1:02] <OpenSys> only one step
[1:03] <OpenSys> s/move/more
[1:04] <ShiftPlusOne> azeam, yup, it does take longer, but that doesn't bother me.
[1:04] <OpenSys> lol
[1:04] <ShiftPlusOne> OpenSys, Why would it be more safe? It would be faster, but why more safe?
[1:05] <OpenSys> bs=4 in the original card fash
[1:06] <OpenSys> ShiftPlusOne, safe because just 1 step, no resize, because resize partitions it's not a good think after some time of use.
[1:07] <OpenSys> in this case dd may work because head in sd's cards its all the same sizes
[1:07] <ShiftPlusOne> Ah, not a big deal, but fair enough.
[1:07] <OpenSys> but in hard disks = fail
[1:08] * TomM_ (~quassel@unaffiliated/tommehm) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:08] <ShiftPlusOne> Though I have been wondering about the use of dd on sd cards. Doesn't it mess with the wear levelling?
[1:08] <Gadgetoid> Yay, my LedBorg is now fading through colours, rainbowey!
[1:09] <Gadgetoid> Need to write a function to pulse between two arbitrary colours
[1:09] * BlueDreams (~matt@24-205-95-34.dhcp.psdn.ca.charter.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:09] <OpenSys> ShiftPlusOne, head's and block sizes its normally the same on all
[1:11] * pecorade (~pecorade@host99-255-dynamic.6-87-r.retail.telecomitalia.it) Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)

[1:14] <Gadgetoid> I'm fading through 100,000 colour variations, or near enough

[10:24] <ssbr_> gordonDrogon: compiled

[10:24] <ssbr_> the hip new thing is Rust
[10:25] <Viper-7> Gadgetoid: dont get me wrong, its awesome to code with
[10:25] <gordonDrogon> still sticking to C.
[10:25] <ssbr_> (more importantly, Rust is developed entirely by and for open source programmers, and has a massively used application that
[10:25] <Viper-7> but absolutely woeful to maintain
[10:25] <ssbr_> ''s going to be using it)
[10:25] <ssbr_> gordonDrogon: Why?
[10:26] <Viper-7> not worth it for production imo
[10:26] <gordonDrogon> I like C.
[10:26] <Grievre> There is no such thing as a "compiled language" or an "interpreted language"
[10:26] <ssbr_> gordonDrogon: Why?
[10:26] <Grievre> Stop spreading this confusion
[10:26] <Viper-7> sure there is Grievre
[10:26] <gordonDrogon> because.
[10:26] <Gadgetoid> Viper-7: I find that with most languages, anyway, since maintainable code requires forethought and planning and careful construction; but most of the stuff I deal with is messy, rushed and held together with tape
[10:26] <ssbr_> gordonDrogon: That's a stupid answer.
[10:26] <gordonDrogon> if you say so.
[10:26] <ssbr_> gordonDrogon: If there are specific reasons you like C, it's quite possible there are other languages that share those things, while still being different in interesting ways.
[10:26] <Grievre> Give me any "compiled" language and I can write an interpreter for it. Give me any "interpreted" language and I can write a compiler for it (it might take me a while though)
[10:27] <Gadgetoid> C is obviously the third best language, after A and B.
[10:27] <ssbr_> Grievre: nobody ever said "compiled language"
[10:27] <Grievre> There are languages which have specific features that make compilation kind of a pain
[10:27] <Grievre> but that does not preclude it entirely
[10:27] <Gadgetoid> Compilation is a matter of perspective; computers are simply hardware based interpreters

[10:40] <steve_rox> language translators eh , i rember that vb6 lang to vb.net converter , it was rubbish
[10:40] <Grievre> every compiler is a language translator
[10:41] <spura> hi, I'm trying to figure out what format my hard disk should be in so that i can use it with my raspberry pi and my mac
[10:41] <DusteD> I think that every time you implement the same thing again, it becomes a little better, and your insight aw little deeper, unless you're arrogant enough to believe that no "trivial" task can improve your understanding.
[10:42] <Viper-7> DusteD: iteration/revision is a great thing, but having twelve different implementations of the same thing, each with their own various quirks, spread throughout your API is not

[10:43] <DusteD> Viper-7, point taken, I don't know why I ignored that this was about API design xD
[10:43] <Viper-7> the result with Go is an API which is easy, intuitive and helpful, quick to develop with, easy to maintain, and very powerful (it compiles down nearly as well as C in raw single threaded tests, better in most any real world cases, the main difference being that it uses a runtime managed memory / garbage collection system to support rich complex types
[10:43] <wombledom> h-h-hi
[10:43] <gordonDrogon> I did look at a translator to C for my BASIC interpreter at one point. there is a fairly simple mapping line per line to make it work - but although it would be a fun project, I just never saw the real point...

[10:44] <jelly1> why would you use ext3
[10:44] <Viper-7> but the API is also awesome, very feature rich
[10:44] <jelly1> spura: doesn't de mac support ext4?
[10:44] <gordonDrogon> I always wondered what happened to the paridgm of "programmers are lazy"...
[10:45] <gordonDrogon> too many dots and double colons for my dyslectic eyes to cope with.
[10:45] <DusteD> Would make more sense to install FUSE on the mac
[10:45] <Viper-7> everything from sockets/http to encryption to image handling to etc is pretty much built in, and at worst theres a large gem/cpan/etc style network already established
[10:45] <spura> I'm completely new to this and just trying to get started, I'm in disk utility on my mac and am trying to reformat an old drive so i can mount it to my raspberry pi.
[10:45] <jelly1> ext4 > ext3
[10:46] <Viper-7> calling native C libraries is also very easy
[10:46] <DusteD> spura, do it the other way around, format it from the pi :)
[10:46] <jelly1> spura: why do you need access from OSX?
[10:46] <Viper-7> getting called from far less so - i'd still use middleware like gearman
[10:46] <jelly1> spura: just share the drive with the pi ;)
[10:47] <gordonDrogon> spura, yea, stick the drive in a NAS and use the network.
[10:47] * jelly1 gigles about the fact that OSX doesn't support ext4
[10:47] * jelly1 wonders if *BSD does
[10:47] <spura> i don't have an NAS
[10:47] <gordonDrogon> use a Pi as a NAS, although it's somewhat sub-optimal..

[10:51] <Perkele> unless you plan to remove the sd and put it in your mac
[10:51] <Gadgetoid> fat32 has a limit of ~2GB does it not?
[10:51] <Perkele> Gadgetoid: 4gb i believe
[10:51] <DusteD> Gadget-Mac, max filesize yes is 4 GiB
[10:51] <wombledom> i found out that a low quality power supply will halt a pi even if it delivers enough power
[10:51] <jelly1> sure
[10:51] <DusteD> but you can have much larger volumes
[10:51] <jelly1> fat32 works on everything though

[10:52] <spura> viper-7 have jailbroken but never done that
[10:52] <DusteD> For torrenting fat32 is not optimal since many of those files are more than 4GiB
[10:52] <wombledom> Can a grounding issue cause interference with usb devices plugged into the same power outlet?

[11:39] <knoppies> zammalad, yes it should be. But be aware that you can back feed power into the pi, which could cause issues.
[11:40] <knoppies> zammalad, Back-feeding may make the use of the micro-USB cable redundant, but I haven't tried that.
[11:42] * mgottschlag (~quassel@reactos/tester/phoenix64) has joined #raspberrypi
[11:42] <zammalad> knoppies how so? I would have just assumed that the power would come to the usb hub and then out of one of the hub ports to the micro usb power input on the Pi. The hub itself would get usb input through the normal method of connecting to the USB ports on the Pi with a usb a to b connector.
[11:43] <zammalad> would it be down the a to b connector that the feedback may occur?
[11:43] * S0-2 (~sgra@unaffiliated/sgra) has joined #raspberrypi

[12:04] <gordonDrogon> it's annoying though - I should have thought this through a little more.
[12:05] <gordonDrogon> The PiFace runs everything at 5v - I can use an external power supply, so I could feed 9v into it, but the relays are 5v relays.

[12:48] <gordonDrogon> I think that the Pi has a high "usability" factor than most things - you can develop /on/ it, run programs on it, use the gpio too. As a teaching platform I think it does OK. Not sure why the push for "more cores" comes from- you need to learn on once core first..

[12:49] <knoppies> I do however find that trying to use the Pi with any GUI (at least with raspbian) is hopeless. Rendering the graphics processing rather useless (as I now use mine headless).
[12:49] <gordonDrogon> yea, the USB is somewhat of a bugbear for the Pi right now.
[12:51] <gordonDrogon> I'm half hoping it might encourage some new type of devleopment environment - the current GUI based ones are a bit clunky - probably by virtue of them being written in Java or some other higher level system. X on the Pi is OK in itself, but the underlying applications are the greedy ones from waht I've seen.

[15:36] <IT_Sean> Morning.
[15:37] <zleap> morning
[15:37] <Mahjongg> hello, I wonder if there is a device that I can plug my rpi into and it will initiate a proper rpi shutdown if there is a power outage. There are occasional power outages around here and I get sdcard corruption every now and then
[15:38] <Mahjongg> in case this solution is cheaper than a UPS solution
[15:38] <eggy> battery pack? ;-)
[15:38] <Mahjongg> how do you handle your rpi servers?
[15:38] <weltall> there are really cheap ups
[15:38] * zokeber (~Zokeber@unaffiliated/zokeber) has joined #raspberrypi
[15:39] <eggy> battery packs.
[15:39] <Mahjongg> eggy, battery pack plugged into AC?
[15:39] <eggy> ya, thats the best I can think of
[15:39] <Tachyon`> charger -> 6v SLA -> regulator -> Pi might work
[15:39] <eggy> I have more of a problem clobbering the sdcard, not power issues
[15:40] <Tachyon`> although that wouldn't shut it down, just power it, you'd need more if you wanted it to detect the power loss
[15:40] * ugg (~me@dsl-216-221-55-12.mtl.contact.net) Quit (Ping timeout: 258 seconds)
[15:40] <Mahjongg> Tachyon`, outages don't last long. so that might work
[15:41] <Mahjongg> Tachyon`, regular is for 6v->5v conversion?
[15:41] <Tachyon`> you could have some thing as simple as the charger also powering a relay andthe other side grounding a GPIO when there's powe, that'd give the appopriate isolation
[15:41] <Tachyon`> regulator, yes, I'd use a 7805
[15:45] <Mahjongg> Tachyon`, I am new to electornics, taking my beginner in Arduino classes :) is this what you mean by 7805 regulator? http://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/ON-Semiconductor/MC7805CTG/?qs=%252b9/cbd0IE0SRQQJXyw%252b9hQ==
[15:45] <Tachyon`> that's it
[15:45] <Mahjongg> thanks
[15:45] <Tachyon`> although it says minimum input 7 which is a bit concerning
[15:46] <Tachyon`> a 6V SLA does give out more than 6 at full cahrge though
[15:46] <Tachyon`> might be a bit marginal
[15:46] <Tachyon`> I typically feed them 9 or 12, I just suggested 6 as SLA come in that size and it reduces wasted energy in the form of heat
[15:47] <Tachyon`> point is you don't want more than 5 going in as it's passed directly to the USB devices and possibly other things, I don't know
[15:48] <Tachyon`> 7805s aren't particularly efficient but they're as old as the hills, they're used in a lot of things
[15:48] <Mahjongg> the same regulator can do 12->5 as well?
[15:48] <Tachyon`> yeah
[15:49] <Tachyon`> it can take in anything up to 35v
[15:50] * hubutm20 (~hubutm20@79.114.86.168) has joined #raspberrypi
[15:50] <Raspiman> i love my pi :)
[15:51] <Tachyon`> but will dissipate far more heat if being fed 12v (like 600% more) than it would with 6
[15:51] <wombledom> Hmm load is 0.08 with rtorrent going, seems a bit low
[15:51] <Tachyon`> so would need a reasonable heatsink
[15:51] <zleap> you can get small heatsinks for the pi
[15:51] <Tachyon`> not for the pi, for the 7805
[15:51] <Tachyon`> it does have a hole to bolt it to one though
[15:51] <zleap> thats better
[15:52] * tubadaz (~quassel@pdpc/supporter/student/tubadaz) has joined #raspberrypi

[15:56] <Tachyon`> but it's the regulator that'll get hot doing what he wants, lol
[15:57] <zleap> ah

[15:58] <Tachyon`> I know, lol
[15:58] * ChanServ sets mode +o IT_Sean
[15:58] <Tachyon`> in fact the entire raised section on the 48K spectrum case
[15:58] <Tachyon`> was to fit in a big heatsink for the 7805
[15:58] <zleap> yeah

[15:58] <Tachyon`> just had to replace one of those recently
[15:59] <zleap> fun days back then eh
[15:59] <Tachyon`> have a rubber keyed 48K boxed in mint condition -.o
[15:59] <zleap> mind you at least back then you could put you feet on the powerpack and keep em warm
[15:59] <Tachyon`> the 128K had a heatsink that was external and ran down the right hand side
[15:59] <zleap> i have a 48k+
[15:59] <Tachyon`> it was called the toastrack for that reason
[15:59] <zleap> lol
[15:59] <Tachyon`> yes, the 48+ was almost the same, but no heatsink (or 128 hardware)
[16:00] <zleap> would be ideal in the current weather conditions
[16:00] <Tachyon`> same keyboard though, you can still buy membranes for those, RWAP had some made for the spectrums and ZX81 a couple of years ago
[16:00] <zleap> ah
[16:00] <zleap> i need a new psu for mine
[16:00] <Tachyon`> got oen for my 128 which had given up after 25 years
[16:00] <zleap> talk to gordonDrogon he has a contact who fixes spectrums
[16:01] <Tachyon`> the PSUs are the same on teh 48/128/+2 (grey)
[16:01] <zleap> last time i plugged my speccy in the psu started smoking
[16:01] <Tachyon`> different only on the +2a/+2b (Black) and +3
[16:01] <Tachyon`> er, that's rather concerning
[16:01] <zleap> yeah
[16:01] <Tachyon`> did you look at the caps?
[16:01] <Tachyon`> it's probably the caps

[16:01] <Tachyon`> yes, in the PSU
[16:01] <zleap> hmm
[16:02] <Tachyon`> they'll be visibly bulging with possible venting at the top and gunk
[16:02] <zleap> i am not that confident with electronics, well a bit rusty
[16:02] <Tachyon`> well, as long as you take note of the polarity of them when you replace them
[16:02] <Tachyon`> you'll be fine
[16:02] <zleap> i have seen dead caps so i know what to look for
[16:02] <Tachyon`> (electrolytic caps tend to explode if connected backwards)
[16:02] <zleap> ah
[16:02] <zleap> erk
[16:03] <Tachyon`> but there'll be a stripe down the side indicating the negative side
[16:03] <Tachyon`> so as long as you note which way they are, it'll be fine, lol
[16:04] <zleap> yup i got a few electronics books just a bit rusty with regard to soldering
[16:04] <IT_Sean> Tachyon`: they also explode if you stick them into a mains socket, then turn the power on
[16:04] <zleap> its a project for the future
[16:04] <zleap> well if they are low voltage caps i guess they would explode
[16:05] <IT_Sean> Indeed.
[16:05] <zleap> usually the caps in a psu are there to help smooth the voltage out of the bridge rectifier on the dc side of the erm
[16:05] <IT_Sean> To this day i bet my old Interface Design professor cringes when he turns on a lightswitch...

[17:11] <nid0> yeah and on a pi, 1 bitcoin will probably take like a decade to mine
[17:11] <buzzsaw> yeah but your not going to be able to mine a bitcoin on a pi :-)
[17:11] <Hoerie> <saml> so if i mine one bitcoin, i pay for rpi <-- 1 bitcoin will take you a long time :-)
[17:11] <saml> really?

[17:11] <saml> i guess.. nothing's free

[17:13] <Hoerie> doesn't the usb spec state 500mAh? As in too little for a pi?
[17:13] <clever> arcanescu: it clearly says its a 2.1amp adapter
[17:14] <nid0> thats the mains plug, not the hub
[17:14] <chithead> the rpi input fuse is rated 700mA, so it can take more than 500 especially if you have stuff connected to the usb ports
[17:14] <clever> the hub has to get its power from somewhere
[17:14] <arcanescu> ok so that is enough for the WIFI

[17:20] <buzzsaw> I will try to find you a better link later but I have to take a conferennce call.
[17:20] <buzzsaw> Most likley now that its out of the way your dealing with a situation where your trying to get a ip address before you have authenticated
[17:20] <arcanescu> thanks alot....
[17:21] <buzzsaw> your welcome. any time
[17:21] <buzzsaw> but... try to do things manualy first
[17:21] <buzzsaw> make sure your authenticating first
[17:21] <arcanescu> how do i do that?
[17:21] <arcanescu> moving the line wpa-conf before?
[17:21] <buzzsaw> once you authenticate then try to grab an ip address
[17:21] <buzzsaw> be back afer a while

[17:24] <murphycr> So if anyone remembers my issues with my networking on my RPi... I think it's because I partially fried the USB controller
[17:25] <murphycr> Would that manifest as a USB Keyboard acting up when plugged in? ie dropping and inserting random characters?

[17:26] <azeam> murphycr: what does "partially fried" mean? :) The dropping and inserting of characters with USB keyboards is likely related to the USB bug that is being worked on, try to update to the latest kernel, most problems seem to have been resolved now

[20:02] <azeam> great ;)
[20:03] <azeam> windsurf_: think you dropped out before you saw my answer so here it is again: no monitor I assume? If you have a computer running linux (or a live cd, or some ext tool for Windows) I guess you could connect the sd card to it and set it up by editing the config files from there
[20:03] <windsurf_> azeam: I am comfortable on the command line in os x. i've been ssh'ing into the pi so far
[20:03] <windsurf_> and using vnc
[20:03] <windsurf_> but that's with a network cable.
[20:04] <fryguy> how many usb devices can a raspberry pi address? i'm wondering the feasability of connecting several external HDs to one via a USB hub and turning it into a file server.
[20:04] <windsurf_> i want to move the pi to a colleague's office where he only has secured wifi.
[20:04] <windsurf_> my powered hub doesn't seem to work with the pi ??? doesn't look like it's even getting powered despite being plugged in.
[20:04] <windsurf_> weird.
[20:04] <kkit> fryguy, if you're doing much IO that's going to be way slow
[20:04] * john_f (~jwf@unaffiliated/john-f) Quit (Read error: Operation timed out)
[20:05] <Tenkawa> so anyone running a 3.8 kernel on a pi with a usb root fs?
[20:05] <fryguy> kkit: just need ethernet speed for streaming, so not a ton of IO. more concernec about storage capacity. if I have enough throughput to stream HD content that's fine
[20:05] <XpineX> fryguy: If I remember correctly, the USB standard says that you can address 127 units, but remember that the rPi uses USB for the ethernet interface as well and as kkit says, it's going to be slow
[20:06] <windsurf_> maybe a wifi hub would be better...
[20:06] <windsurf_> hm.
[20:06] <windsurf_> ethernet -> wifi hub??
[20:06] <azeam> windsurf_: well, you could do like I said, but I guess it'll be annoying if you have to bring it back home again to re-edit any mistakes, easiest I guess would be to bring a monitor while you set it up
[20:06] <windsurf_> configure wifi hub with a laptop then plug it back into the network cable on the pi, so pi just sees it as a hard wired net connection rather than as connected via wifi
[20:06] <windsurf_> yeah
[20:07] <fryguy> XpineX: how slow is slow?

[20:07] <azeam> fryguy: how many hard drives are you planning to connect to it?
[20:08] <XpineX> fryguy, I'm pretty sure that a single harddrive is able to use the full available bandwidth on the USB bus
[20:08] <XpineX> ... if the ethernet interface is used at the same time
[20:08] <fryguy> azeam: unsure at this point, probably on the order of 4-6
[20:08] <fryguy> probably 2 to start with, looking to do mirrored stripes
[20:09] <fryguy> so a pair of 3tb hds
[20:09] <jelly1> fryguy: with the PI?
[20:09] <fryguy> i have a big fileserver machine now that basically sits idle all of the time and wastes power, was investigating the feasabilllty of having a pi handle it
[20:09] <jelly1> fryguy: I won't do it
[20:09] <XpineX> fryguy, I have been playing with the idea to turn the rPi into a NAS, but it simply is not strong enough and 100Mbit ethernet is too slow
[20:09] <jelly1> if you want a stable nas
[20:10] <XpineX> jelly1: why would it not be stable ?
[20:10] <jelly1> XpineX: if you're going to read much of the disk
[20:10] <jelly1> and do ethernet
[20:10] <jelly1> not sure, but I wouldn't put my money on it
[20:11] <azeam> I'm using my pi as a nas with a single hdd and it works just fine, 100mbit is fine for watching hd content which is what I'm mainly using it for, don't know how well it would work with up to 6 usb drives though
[20:12] <jelly1> I would rather use a real network chip

[20:15] <jelly1> well isn't the ethernet chip connected via usb
[20:15] <windsurf_> ok cool. i have wifi and network cable plugged in, powered usb hub and i now see the usb dongle.. gonna see if I can configure for a network that doesn't exist..
[20:15] <IT_Sean> jelly1: it is. But, how else would you add one?

[20:16] <jelly1> IT_Sean:I'm not a hardwar eguy
[20:16] <IT_Sean> clearly.
[20:16] <plugwash> linux has a driver for the enc28j60 and AIUI it's just a matter of doing some kernel plumbing to hook it up to the SPI driver
[20:17] <jelly1> IT_Sean: just saying If he is going to mirror such large drives, I'd say the pi wouldn't be able to handle it
[20:17] <plugwash> (though the enc28j60 is only 10 mbps, there are faster SPI ethernet controllers but I dunno if anyone has tried one with a Pi)
[20:17] <jelly1> since he will use software raid on 3TB x 2
[20:17] <azeam> windsurf_: if you have a laptop you could also connect the pi to it via ethernet, bring them to the office and set it up via ssh
[20:17] <gordonDrogon> "just a matter of doing some kernel plumbing" <- Famous last words ;-)
[20:17] <IT_Sean> yeah
[20:17] <windsurf_> azeam: thought about that, but would I need a twisted pair (i think that's what you call it when the network cable is crimped backwards)
[20:17] <gordonDrogon> The Pi will do 32Mb/sec over the SPI bus, but the target device has to be very close...
[20:18] <jelly1> IT_Sean: because if he will write something to I would say the bus would get overloaded but imo not sure till your try ;)
[20:18] <azeam> windsurf_: the pi detects it automatically so it won't be needed
[20:18] * N0_Named_Guy (~Someone@a89-153-107-115.cpe.netcabo.pt) has joined #raspberrypi
[20:18] <IT_Sean> windsurf_: the days of needing a xover cable are largely gone. :p
[20:18] <gordonDrogon> and you don't get much cpu/memory left when doing that..
[20:18] <windsurf_> azeam: neat
[20:18] <windsurf_> azeam: so, when i plug that into my laptop, how do i connect, does it just get an ip as though the pi were plugged into a router?
[20:19] <windsurf_> IT_Sean: ah then i'm dating myself :P
[20:19] <jelly1> windsurf_: depends on your network setup :P
[20:19] <azeam> windsurf_: if you set it up correctly yes, kind of, if it's mac you're using I can't help you there though
[20:19] <windsurf_> ya mac
[20:19] <jelly1> I have setup the Pi + ethernet to my laptop with WiFi connection on linux with networkmanager
[20:20] <jelly1> super easy
[20:20] <windsurf_> but it's essentially freebsd
[20:20] <windsurf_> jelly1: network manager configures your pi?
[20:20] <jelly1> windsurf_: no
[20:20] <windsurf_> oh identifies the pi?
[20:20] <jelly1> I configured networkmanager to let the Pi get a lease on my ethernet port
[20:21] <jelly1> and passthrough traffic
[20:21] <windsurf_> i see
[20:21] <windsurf_> i don't know how to do that.

[20:24] <windsurf_> oh
[20:24] <windsurf_> no, i think you'd have to wifi connect to that thing first.
[20:25] <azeam> windsurf_: I think you are making it overly complicated, it shouldn't be too difficult to set up a local network via ethernet on your laptop
[20:25] <jelly1> windsurf_: do you have a wifi connection at home?
[20:26] <windsurf_> i have wired and wireless at home but the goal is to bring the pi to a location that has a secured wifi-only network.
[20:26] <windsurf_> a specific one. i know the network name and pass and security type
[20:26] <jelly1> so you need a usb wifi hub anyway?
[20:27] <windsurf_> jelly1: um. i'm not sure about my terminology????? i would think an easy way would be pi -> ethernet -> device with wifi
[20:27] <windsurf_> not sure if 'device' is a hub/switch/router...
[20:27] <jelly1> o.o
[20:28] <windsurf_> the device would be configured on my laptop first to know how to connect to the wifi network at the location i'll be at
[20:28] <IT_Sean> what is the "device"
[20:28] <IT_Sean> is it a router? a hub? a bridge?
[20:29] <pksato> windsurf_: you need to pre configure network on rpi?
[20:29] <windsurf_> IT_Sean: ^^^ i'm kind of asking that
[20:29] <pksato> and, rpi dont have a displaya and keyboard?
[20:29] <windsurf_> IT_Sean: i would buy the device whose function i'm describing
[20:29] <windsurf_> no keyboard, no monitor for pi pksato
[20:29] <windsurf_> but i do have vnc set up
[20:30] <pksato> you need to know ip address (or host name)
[20:31] <windsurf_> pksato: i know the host name of the wifi LAN
[20:31] <pksato> some dhcp server can register host name on local dns.
[20:31] <windsurf_> i mean, it's gonna be like 192.168.0.1 and i can determine that with my laptop when i'm connected to that lan

[21:52] <tebruno99> zastaph so that would be a very poor claim
[21:52] <zastaph> depends how you format :)
[21:52] <tebruno99> not really
[21:53] <tebruno99> formatting is a filesystem thing
[21:53] <tebruno99> if you want to zero out the drive or something, thats usually another step
[21:53] <tebruno99> you should never low level format drives since EIDE
[21:53] <zastaph> since what
[21:54] <tebruno99> enhanced ide
[21:54] <gordonDrogon> exactly.
[21:54] <tebruno99> and drive made after like 1998 should not be low level formated
[21:54] <tebruno99> maybe even before that
[21:54] <zastaph> i did that with all mine
[21:55] <zastaph> mostly to check them for errors
[21:55] <tebruno99> i didn't know BIOS even had that option anymore
[21:56] <tebruno99> zastaph and it doesn't work on SSD or SD anyway
[21:56] <tebruno99> because they write balance
[21:56] <tebruno99> you very well could have just written 2 blocks over and over if you tried
[21:56] <kkit> i didn't even think you /could/ do a LLF on modern drives
[21:57] <tebruno99> kkit you can't
[21:57] <tebruno99> I think he means he didn't "quick format"
[21:57] <tebruno99> which still isn't writing to all sectors of the drive
[21:58] <zastaph> i used boot and nuke tool
[21:58] <tebruno99> well, you could place a new SATA drive with IDE connector into a pre 1998 motherboard and do a LLF
[21:58] <gordonDrogon> I'm never convinced that SSDs do the whole write wear balancing thing anyway.
[21:58] <zastaph> but dd also worked
[21:58] <tebruno99> zastaph its still write balanced
[21:58] <gordonDrogon> if they did, then they could only do it once as they don't know the underlying filesystem...

[21:59] <tebruno99> zastaph anyway, it doesn't really matter. Theres nothing that will "slow down the card"
[22:00] <tebruno99> the card has no concept of formatting etc

[22:04] <tebruno99> zastaph stability?
[22:04] <windsurf_> tebruno99: ??
[22:05] <zastaph> tebruno, well on the SD compatibility page most 4 and 6 class cards are approved
[22:05] <tebruno99> windsurf_ i've never owned a dlink that the power adapter didn't melt after a year or so
[22:05] <tebruno99> zastaph ah, imo you worry to much
[22:05] <windsurf_> tebruno99: oh :S
[22:06] <tebruno99> it either works or doesn't
[22:06] <tebruno99> if it doesn't, return it
[22:06] <zastaph> tebruno, dont think i can return an SD card if not compatible with Pi
[22:06] <tebruno99> why not?
[22:07] <zastaph> because its not bought together
[22:07] <tebruno99> ah, rules must be different than here
[22:07] <tebruno99> here they don't even ask
[22:07] <tebruno99> return, ok. done
[22:08] <tebruno99> even so, "this sd card doesn't work in my device" I don't think the seller of an SD card has the right to say "well what was your device?"
[22:08] <tebruno99> if it doesn't work, it doesn't work
[22:08] <zastaph> is yours Sandisk?
[22:08] <tebruno99> yeah
[22:09] <zastaph> i presume class 4 will slow down network transfers on 10/100
[22:10] <tebruno99> if you are writing that network transfer to the SD card.. maybe
[22:10] <tebruno99> depends on how large the file, your current amount of ram, and method you use to transfer
[22:10] <zastaph> well i might consider a class 10 then
[22:11] <tebruno99> there is a painful difference between class 2 and class 10
[22:11] <tebruno99> that I can definitely speak for
[22:12] <Gadgetoid> I just searched my Windows 8 computer for "Terminal"??? *sigh*
[22:12] <tebruno99> takes apt-get update like.. 30 seconds to even start to output a line of text on class 2. with class 10 its instant

[23:01] <Tenkawa> mind you that "was" 12+ years ago
[23:01] <Tenkawa> azeam: thanks for the info
[23:01] <azeam> but I haven't tried it myself yet, I've always had some kind of strange fear (justified?) of asterisk, the whole VoIP/pbx/etc. thing confuses the *** out of me

[23:02] <azeam> but supposedly the freepbx is a user-friendly way to set it up

[23:02] <chithead> digium and the #asterisk folks are reportedly not the nicest people to deal with
[23:02] <Tenkawa> he
[23:03] <Tenkawa> heh
[23:03] <gordonDrogon> I've spent 5 years selling asterisk based systems
[23:04] <gordonDrogon> I gave up on asterisk after version 1.4 because digium kept on changing the goalposts.
[23:04] <Tenkawa> heh
[23:04] <Tenkawa> ouch
[23:05] <gordonDrogon> I wanted something that would be stable for 5 years - my clients had something that had "just worked" for 15 years - companies don't like change when it comes to phones.
[23:05] <Tenkawa> indeed
[23:05] <gordonDrogon> The Pi is more than capable of running asterisk - for a small number of calls if it's handling media. The issue is the packet rate and the half duplex nature of the Ethernet/USB.
[23:06] <Tenkawa> ahh good point
[23:06] <gordonDrogon> if it's not handling media then it'll handle many calls, but most people don't configure i that way (or can't).
[23:06] <Tenkawa> half duplex though?
[23:06] <gordonDrogon> USB is hand duplex.
[23:06] <gordonDrogon> hanf*
[23:06] <gordonDrogon> doh - half!
[23:06] <Tenkawa> ahh the usb bus itself
[23:06] <gordonDrogon> yes, so it has a knock-on for the Ethernet.
[23:07] <Tenkawa> interrsting how the nic still thinks its full-duplex
[23:07] <chithead> usb has mechanisms to reserve bandwitdh
[23:07] <gordonDrogon> 50 packets per second each way per call...
[23:07] <clever> the buffers in the ethernet chip allow it to receive and transmit at the same time
[23:07] <chithead> bandwidth*
[23:07] <clever> but thosewill run out fast, then it has to wait for usb
[23:07] <Tenkawa> clever: good point
[23:08] <clever> in a way, pci is also half-duplex
[23:08] <gordonDrogon> I've not itred it myself - by the time I got a Pi I was in the process of running down my VoIP business.
[23:08] <FergyA> anyone here have any tips on improving link quality of an xbee hooked up to my pi?
[23:08] <clever> but pci ethernet cards can still get 100mbit just fine
[23:08] <FergyA> I cant get over 9600 baud without having loss like crazy when trying to push a file over it :/
[23:08] <gordonDrogon> I'm still doing VoIP and will be for a few more years, just not taking on new customers now.
[23:08] <chithead> http://elinux.org/RPi_Performance#NIC the pi can get around 90 mb/s

[23:09] <chithead> Tenkawa: you did the usual rootdelay/rootwait dance?
[23:09] <Tenkawa> chithead: yep
[23:09] <clever> FergyA: the xbee always uses the same bitrate for the rf transmissions, it cant be changed
[23:09] <gordonDrogon> I benchmarked an Alix system with a 500MHz MD Geode processor to 80 concurrent calls handling media..
[23:10] <clever> FergyA: are you using hardware flow control at all?
[23:10] <FergyA> so then do you have any ideas why when I crank the baud up I get craziness out the other end?
[23:10] <FergyA> and no
[23:10] <Tenkawa> it never sees it... however if i boot that same kernel to the sd root copy it does see the usb drive after boot (with no modules needed)
[23:10] <Tenkawa> its odd indeed
[23:10] <FergyA> from what ive seen hardware flow control on the pi is anything but easy
[23:11] <clever> FergyA: the transmitting module will buffer data up and transmit it, with retry whenever it doesnt get an ack
[23:11] <gordonDrogon> there's none :)
[23:11] <clever> FergyA: if you get packet loss, it will try to resend the packet, but the buffers will be filling up
[23:11] <Tenkawa> almost like it just chooses to not scan the usb bus at all until after booting
[23:11] <clever> so a lack of hardware flow control causes bytes to get lost before the xbee can even buffer them
[23:11] <azeam> gordonDrogon: just a comment regarding "companies don't like change when it comes to phones". Here in Sweden we had a government owned telephone company (the only one) for a long time. In 1993 the (imo idiotic) privatize-everything-wave came and the phone market was set free. The government company (then Televerket, now Telia) is now, 20 years later, the most useless company in terms of service and one of the most expensive, still it is, afaik, the
[23:11] <azeam> biggest
[23:11] <gordonDrogon> I've used the ciseco URF stuff on the Pi though - that just looks like a USB serial device. it worked a treat.
[23:11] <FergyA> yeah, its strange regardless, it only gets loss on large transfers
[23:11] <FergyA> if i try and send a small file its fine
[23:11] <clever> FergyA: rev1 or rev2 board?
[23:11] <FergyA> rev 2
[23:12] <clever> FergyA: http://elinux.org/RPi_Serial_Connection#Handshaking_lines
[23:12] <clever> hardware handshake lines are on P1 and P5
[23:12] <clever> and the xbee will need to be setup to use them also
[23:12] <gordonDrogon> does the Pi kernel drive support them though?

[23:13] <clever> FergyA: one ugly way to verify thins
[23:13] <clever> FergyA: hook the hardware flow control from the xbee, to an led, or scope
[23:13] <clever> and see if it changes state when you get packet loss
[23:13] <clever> just dont even connect it to the pi

[23:13] <FergyA> currently trying to shorten the cables between the xbee and pi to see if that helps at all
[23:14] <clever> gordonDrogon: i think its handled in hardware, and you just need to set the gpio to that alternate mode
[23:14] <clever> FergyA: another neat fact with the xbee's, the baud rates dont have to match
[23:14] <clever> FergyA: ive put a 9600 xbee on my gps module, and a 115200 xbee on my laptop
[23:14] <clever> works perfectly fine
[23:15] <clever> the only thing the baud rate controls, is the uart on that device, and nothing else
[23:16] <Tenkawa> so who is the target audience for xbee modules btw?
[23:16] <FergyA> hmmm, cool
[23:16] <FergyA> itd still be a bottleneck though
[23:16] <clever> for the other direction, yep
[23:16] <clever> but my gps module never has to receive anything
[23:17] <clever> and i planned to make the laptop end a hub, with many things transmiting to it

[23:21] <FergyA> and anything over that becomes unusable
[23:22] <FergyA> 9600 there is no loss at all :/
[23:22] <clever> FergyA: 'RF
[23:22] <clever> FR^2: RF
[23:22] <FR^2> Hmm?
[23:22] <clever> hmmm, pdf reader is screwing with me
[23:22] * Tenkawa has flashbacks of xmodem with no good crc checking days
[23:22] <clever> FergyA: RF data throughput up to 20 Kbps
[23:22] <clever> FergyA: thats your problem
[23:22] <Tenkawa> or kermit
[23:22] <clever> FergyA: page 2 of the datasheet
[23:22] * biker (~rguerra@fedora/biker) has joined #raspberrypi
[23:23] <biker> hey all (:
[23:23] <biker> just one question,.,
[23:23] <biker> does the i2c port on the raspberry pi is 3.3V or 5V ?
[23:23] <clever> FergyA: the rf layer is always 20 Kbps, if you set the uart any faster, you fill the buffer faster then the hardware can xmit
[23:23] <FergyA> think you have a different data sheet
[23:23] <FergyA> http://www.digi.com/pdf/ds_xbeepro900.pdf
[23:23] <FergyA> is my module
[23:23] <FergyA> 156kbps RF rate
[23:23] <clever> ah, i was on http://dlnmh9ip6v2uc.cloudfront.net/datasheets/Wireless/Zigbee/ds_xbeeproxsc.pdf
[23:24] <Tenkawa> time to run
[23:24] <Tenkawa> cheers all
[23:24] <clever> yeah, that one is up to 156 kbps
[23:24] * Tenkawa (~Tenkawa@unaffiliated/tenkawa) Quit (Quit: leaving)
[23:24] <FergyA> and honestly when im running 115200 i get full speed off of it, but i just get garbage out the other end
[23:25] <FergyA> it especially makes no sense as when i do test packets with the xbee software theres no loss
[23:25] <FergyA> but as soon as i start using the link for something big it dies off
[23:25] <home> 0_0
[23:25] <clever> if your getting complete garbage, then its likely the clock for the baud rate is off, causing the bytes to get scrambled
[23:25] * Natch_r (~Natch@c-fecee155.25-4-64736c10.cust.bredbandsbolaget.se) has joined #raspberrypi
[23:25] <FergyA> its not complete garbage
[23:25] <clever> xbee has crc's built into the rf layer, so it cant get scrambled there
[23:26] <FergyA> but its enough that the garbage limit in zmodem gets tripped and the transfer is aborted
[23:26] <clever> id give software flowcontrol a try
[23:26] * Guest565 (~Duncan@adsl-75-36-206-113.dsl.pltn13.sbcglobal.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[23:26] <FergyA> yeah, let me try it right now with the ribbon cable gone
[23:26] <clever> and id check the accuracy of the timing with a scope

[23:37] <home> well gg
[23:38] <home> I need to get this usb camera working on my RPI
[23:38] <home> it works perfectly fine on my other linux distrobution
[23:38] <home> only on the RPI, it's glitchy.
[23:38] <home> another USB camera works fine...

[23:45] <knoppies> home, sounds like cheap crap. Is the camera connected straight to the Pi, or are you using a powered USB hub?
[23:47] <buzzsaw> yeah you might need to use a powered hub :-)

[23:53] <FergyA> clever: Any chance you know how to turn software flow control on?
[23:54] <FergyA> I tried bypassing the ribbon cable i had on the xbee to make sure that wasnt a problem and it does the same thing
[23:54] <Gadgetoid> Haha, this Retro synth is amazing??? the entire thing is implemented in programmable logic and Arduino-compatible C, you can tweak it with the Arduino IDE
[23:54] <clever> FergyA: for the xbee, its one of the AT commands (check the datasheet, the real one)
[23:54] <FergyA> how about the pi?
[23:54] <clever> FergyA: for the linux end, its somewhere in stty, and also should be an option in any sane serial lib
[23:54] <FergyA> hmm, im using minicom, any idea if it would be in there somewhere?
[23:55] <clever> FergyA: ctrl+a o
[23:55] <clever> serial port setup i think
[23:55] <FergyA> sweet, got it
[23:55] <FergyA> and for software flow i dont have to hook up any additional pins right?
[23:56] <clever> yep
[23:56] <clever> it will still drop some packets, because of round-trip delays and buffer sizes
[23:56] <clever> but its not as much as no flow control
[23:56] <FergyA> yeah
[23:56] <FergyA> coincidentally minicom had hw flow control on, but ive been using -o
[23:56] <FergyA> so i think that gets bypassed
[23:56] <clever> but that shouldnt effect any corruption, as far as i can tell
