[0:32] * linuxstb (~linuxstb@unaffiliated/linuxstb) Quit (Quit: This computer has gone to sleep)
[0:33] <FergyA> clever: so digi agrees that its a serial problem on the pi
[0:33] <FergyA> and they suspect the serial clock isnt quite cutting it, like you said :/ soooo, now I get to have some fun
[0:35] * Spiffy (~Spiffy@unaffiliated/spiffy) Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[0:35] * Mr_P (~gerhard@chello080108255018.3.14.vie.surfer.at) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:37] <home> I need a minimal image for rpi
[0:37] <home> whats the most minimal image out there?
[0:38] * owen_ (~owen@ has joined #raspberrypi
[0:38] <ShiftPlusOne> Most minimal? Probably mogwai's linux from scratch image.
[0:38] <ShiftPlusOne> http://www.intestinate.com/pilfs/
[0:39] <ShiftPlusOne> Or something you'd roll yourself with buildroot and just using busybox and uclibc.
[0:40] <clever> FergyA: i know that AVR chips set the baud with a clock divisor
[0:41] <clever> FergyA: main clock / X == cycles per bit
[0:41] * pecorade (~pecorade@host62-161-dynamic.32-79-r.retail.telecomitalia.it) Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[0:41] <clever> FergyA: assuming the pi does the same thing, and you have a scope to calibrate, you can fine-tune things to get the right baud rate, with a sucky crystal
[0:41] <clever> assuming the crystal is 'stable' and doesnt change after you cal it
[0:41] * XenGi is now known as XenGi_
[0:41] <FergyA> yeah, we'll see, a lot of this is way over my head anyhow ^^
[0:42] <FergyA> I'm a MechE major :P not EE :P
[0:42] <clever> but i have no idea how to set the divisor manualy on a pi, or if its even cabable
[0:42] <clever> could ask on the forums maybe
[0:42] <clever> that also explains why i'm getting the ocasional corrupt byte in my serial console, at 115200
[0:43] <clever> hmmm, i do have a scope, so i could measure how inaccurate mine is
[0:43] * Hydra (~Hydra@AGrenoble-651-1-490-104.w90-42.abo.wanadoo.fr) Quit (Quit: HydraIRC -> http://www.hydrairc.com <- The alternative IRC client)
[0:43] <clever> 27 19:39:38 <@clever_> 1 / ((1 / 1000 / 1000)*8) == 125,000
[0:44] <clever> FergyA: left over math from when i was working out baud rate, from the scope
[0:44] <FergyA> well, I may just end up going with 9600bps and work on compressing my data as much as possible, I have a week to figure this out
[0:44] <clever> if i remember correctly, i was getting roughly 8uS per bit, but the scope wasnt zoomed in enough
[0:44] <clever> so the math was off
[0:44] <clever> try each baud rate, and see how much damage each one gives
[0:45] <clever> and pick the fastest one that has a reasonable loss
[0:45] <FergyA> yeah, 19200 works, it only fails a CRC every few minutes instead of every few seonds
[0:45] <clever> and one step down from that should be much better
[0:45] <clever> its the same thing dialup modems do, test things at every baud rate, and pick the best one the line can handle
[0:45] <FergyA> one step down from that is 9600 ^^
[0:46] * xyzodiac (~xyzodiac@ Quit (Quit: Computer has gone to sleep.)
[0:46] <clever> oh, lol
[0:46] <clever> hmmm
[0:47] * jankyhellface (~jankyhell@ has joined #raspberrypi
[0:48] * Turingi (~devon@unaffiliated/devon-hillard/x-7250961) Quit (Ping timeout: 240 seconds)
[0:48] <clever> FergyA: one min
[0:50] * xyzodiac (~xyzodiac@ has joined #raspberrypi
[0:51] <clever> FergyA: https://github.com/raspberrypi/linux/blob/rpi-3.6.y/drivers/tty/serial/amba-pl011.c
[0:51] <clever> FergyA: line 1514
[0:51] * violet-rpi (~quassel@78-22-180-177.access.telenet.be) Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[0:51] <clever> not sure what you can do with it just yet though
[0:51] <FergyA> yeah
[0:52] <FergyA> and we'd have to know what to set it to ^^
[0:52] <clever> just a guess, can you try a non-standard baud rate?, 18000, 17000, 16000?
[0:52] <clever> you would have to configure the xbee similarly, its in the datasheet
[0:52] <clever> and may want to look up how to recover it from a bad baud (hold one of the pins to gnd i think, while its connected to the windows software)
[0:52] <FergyA> yeah, ive seen the stuff for that, that itself is hit or miss though
[0:53] <clever> using non-standard bauds, you can go faster then 9600, while keeping error rates low
[0:53] <FergyA> ive got plenty of experience with that from the 2 xbees i bricked previously ^^
[0:53] <home> what images are you guys using?
[0:53] <clever> and if you use a scope (or try randomly), you can set one to 18000 and the other to 18100, and get an error free link
[0:53] <home> FergyA, a mech major, ew
[0:53] <clever> if the baud was off by 100, for example
[0:54] <FergyA> :P I'm actually an applied physics major, that better?
[0:54] <home> urgh, yes :D
[0:54] * Syliss (~Home@ has joined #raspberrypi
[0:54] <clever> FergyA: hmmm, set the xbee to 19200, then brute-force the pi, 15000 thru 20000, in 100 baud steps
[0:54] <FergyA> needest to say i am way out of my league
[0:54] <clever> FergyA: see which baud gives the best performance
[0:54] <FergyA> sounds like a plan, i will try that
[0:54] <clever> repeat at higher speeds
[0:55] <clever> but minicom may need some coersion to use non-standard rates
[0:55] <FergyA> yeah, if need be i can try screen
[0:55] <FergyA> im pretty sure its not as picky
[0:55] <clever> stty can also be used to change the default
[0:55] <FergyA> i only went with minicom because of the zmodem stuff
[0:55] * XenGi_ is now known as XenGi
[0:55] <clever> stty < /dev/ttyAMA0 18000
[0:56] <clever> echo test > /dev/ttyAMA0
[0:56] <clever> the 1st changes the 'default', effecting any future open of the device (ugly, but simple)
[0:56] <clever> the 2nd re-opens it and sends test
[0:56] * MAssEy (~msy135@ti0018a380-dhcp4218.bb.online.no) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:56] * dj_pi (~dj@c-107-5-25-243.hsd1.mi.comcast.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:57] * xyzodiac (~xyzodiac@ Quit (Quit: Computer has gone to sleep.)
[0:58] <FergyA> so umm yeah
[0:58] <clever> http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?t=33011&p=283782
[0:58] <clever> hmmm, you can give a baud on the cli, i wonder what it will do at non-standard ones
[0:58] <FergyA> if i jumpered gpio 14 (TXD) and gpio 15 (RXD) i should get a loopback on my serial monitor no?
[0:58] <clever> yeah, but the pi will be receiving with the same offset as the transmit
[0:59] <clever> so it will always be a perfect link
[0:59] <clever> you should do that, at the far end, the other xbee
[0:59] <FergyA> and if i get nothing back?
[0:59] <clever> then try another baud rate
[0:59] <clever> brute force till you find one that works, near 19200
[1:00] <clever> thats about all you can do without a scope to verify things
[1:00] <FergyA> I dont even get anything back at 9600 :/
[1:00] <clever> what is the xbee set to?
[1:01] <FergyA> the xbee isnt even hooked up right now
[1:01] <FergyA> im simply looping back the pis serial port to try and debug in
[1:01] <FergyA> it*
[1:01] <clever> looking at it with what?
[1:01] <FergyA> looking at it with screen
[1:01] <clever> ah, not sure how that effects things
[1:02] <FergyA> and minicom does the same
[1:02] <clever> try minicom with a non-standard rate maybe, 'minicom -b 9650 -o -D /dev/ttyAMA0' and just connect tx to rx
[1:03] <FergyA> unless the serial on this thing is asyncronous
[1:03] <FergyA> which would be a bit odd...

[5:35] <NetBat> greetings Pi pickers.
[5:35] <pksato> for boot time, yes.
[5:35] <mfletcher> reason for asking, is I haven't had much luck using class 10 cards on my raspi, but class 4 is fine
[5:35] <techman2> I've had no problems with Class 6
[5:35] <mfletcher> but after boot, performance diff is negligible?
[5:36] <pksato> only for massive 'disk' access.
[5:37] <mfletcher> ok thank you!
[5:38] <mfletcher> I bought a wifi dongle for my raspi from adafruit and have spent a good bit of this evening getting it on the network??? was fun!
[5:38] <mfletcher> Its funny but something you take for granted on other platforms/os's is trivial to achieve, but you get more satisfaction when you get it working on Linux :)
[5:40] <clever> most of it is just down to setup, and some distro's have things pre-configured more then others
[5:40] * techman2 (~glen@unaffiliated/techman2) Quit (Quit: Sphinx may be image of a failed attempt to cross humans with lions.)
[5:40] <clever> android is an extreme case, because the hardware and 'os' are locked to eachother, so everything can be configured perfectly
[5:41] <clever> most android devices run wpa_supplicant, just like linux
[5:42] <mfletcher> wanted to configure it from the command line - would have been easier to do it through the gui, but Im running the raspi headless, so wanted to understand how to configure it via the cli
[5:42] <clever> wpa_supplicant can also be done from cli
[5:42] <clever> wpa_passphrase network password
[5:42] <clever> run this and it gives you a portion of the config file
[5:43] <clever> wpa_supplicant -iwlan2 -Dwext -c/root/wlan1/wpa_config -B -W
[5:43] <clever> then just manualy invoke it (or use the proper init.d script)
[5:43] <clever> and man pages!
[5:44] <clever> -W isnt needed, but helps to automate the next steps (dhcp)
[5:45] <mfletcher> ok thank you! will read the man pages. actually ended up butchering /etc/network/interfaces so if theres a cleaner way I'll try it
[5:48] <clever> wpa_supplicant can also be configured to use wep or nothing at all
[5:48] <clever> ive got mine setup to auto-connect to every network i have the pw for, and then fall back to open networks for when i'm not home

[6:27] <chupacabra> Eric and I set up a 'Geeks with Guns' Event that year
[6:28] <chupacabra> that sob has 2 hot chicks following him around as an entourage
[6:28] <Scriven> I in fact have to try that starting september when the youngest of my kids starts school, so I'm no longer full-time stay-at-home parent.
[6:28] <chupacabra> no not 2, 20!

[6:38] * windsurf_ (~windsurf_@ has joined #raspberrypi
[6:38] <windsurf_> why's the best way to back up my Pi's SD card? thinking something like Disk Utility or carbon copy cloner...
[6:39] <windsurf_> hm. pi cloner looks interesting
[6:39] <Grievre> dd?
[6:39] <Scriven> windsurf_, rsync over ssh?
[6:40] <windsurf_> i don't think rsync is the right tool, it won't catch partitions etc.
[6:40] <windsurf_> maybe dd.
[6:40] <windsurf_> gonna try pi cloner first.
[6:40] <Scriven> depends on what you want to back up I guess.
[6:40] <windsurf_> like if i wanted to restore from an image on a new sd card and have it boot up
[6:40] <windsurf_> not just some project files within
[6:40] <windsurf_> i do love rsync though
[6:41] <Scriven> I figure it's easy enough to do the partitions and stuff, it's the data I want.
[6:42] <Scriven> I'll let raspbian/distro do it's thing and I'll repopulate my stuff afterwards.
[6:43] <windsurf_> well, i installed Node.js and some stuff
[6:43] <Scriven> bah, have to sleep soon.
[6:43] <windsurf_> would love to just have that without recompiling which took quite a while the first itme
[6:43] <windsurf_> time*

[6:45] * shellbackpacific (~Adium@cpe-24-29-248-74.neo.res.rr.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[6:46] <ohhmaar> So after installing raspbmc will i have to do anything for it to recognize my external hard drive?
[6:46] <ohhmaar> or should it recognize it itself?
[6:46] <chupacabra> Bill Gates and Intel kept beige boxes THE form factor for 40 years. how stupid and greedy
[6:47] <shellbackpacific> did a temperate sensor project (http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/freshers/raspberrypi/tutorials/temperature/). Works fine???just don't understand how the resistor fits into the whole thing. Anybody know why a 3.3V temperature sensor requires a 4.7kOhm resistor ?
[6:48] <shellbackpacific> more of a basic electronics question i suppose
[6:48] <windsurf_> shellbackpacific: is it a onewire sensor?
[6:48] <shellbackpacific> yes
[6:48] <windsurf_> shellbackpacific: just finished a project with those myself.
[6:49] <shellbackpacific> yes this one was pretty straightforward to set up???.i'm a programmer trying to learn more about electronics. Having a blast so far with the Pi
[6:49] <chupacabra> Google Fiber coming to Austin?.this could be awesome...
[6:49] <windsurf_> the resistor is a pull-up resistor. someone else could explain it better that I but here's my take. the one wire sensors are digital, not analog, so they talk in 1's and 0's, on's and off's (HIGH/LOW). When there's power coming through the one wire it's HIGH
[6:50] <windsurf_> but, when it's not, it's not LOW, it's a 3rd state
[6:50] <windsurf_> where the electricity can flow kind of wacky and flip between high/low i gather
[6:50] <windsurf_> so the resistor kind of filters out that low noise
[6:50] <windsurf_> forcing the signals to all be within a threshold or something like that
[6:50] <windsurf_> 'pull up' resistor
[6:50] <shellbackpacific> interesting???so it does more than "resist" i guess?
[6:51] <windsurf_> shellbackpacific: i guess it resists a minimum amount to mask out ambiguity in the voltage
[6:51] <windsurf_> like that randomness would happen below that voltage i guess so low has to still be at a minimum amount, above that resistance.
[6:51] <windsurf_> something to that effec.t
[6:52] <windsurf_> shellbackpacific: may i ask what you did with your project?
[6:53] * ngc0202 (~ngc0202@unaffiliated/ngc0202) Quit (Ping timeout: 240 seconds)
[6:53] <shellbackpacific> sure???set up the temperature sensor in my garage to read inside. Also got outside readings from a local airport. After that wrote a python script to log both and the current time in a sqlite db. Then set up a cron job to run every 20 mins. After that, wrote a little nodejs server to server the data up
[6:54] <shellbackpacific> trying to see how well my garage retains heat
[6:54] <windsurf_> cool. so meteorology at the airport and insulation in the home eh?
[6:54] <shellbackpacific> yeah pretty much
[6:55] <windsurf_> how are you communicating with the arduino with py?
[6:55] <shellbackpacific> want to do much more
[6:55] <shellbackpacific> not using arduino..just the pi
[6:55] <shellbackpacific> sits in my garage and i ssh into it
[6:55] <windsurf_> ah right, forgot which channel i was in
[6:56] <clever> windsurf_: its more the one-wire protocol, then digital vs analog
[6:56] <Crenn-NAS> Starting to look like a 3D printer now :D https://twitter.com/crennsmind/status/320398406210162688/photo/1
[6:56] <clever> windsurf_, shellbackpacific: when doing a search for sensors, many sensors can transmit at the same time
[6:56] <shellbackpacific> clever: so something like this wouldn't require a resistor? http://www.parallax.com/tabid/768/productid/50/default.aspx
[6:56] <clever> to prevent a dead short (+3.3 and 0 sent at the same time), it just never sends +3.3, ever
[6:57] <clever> shellbackpacific: yeah, thats simple, one in, one out
[6:57] <clever> so the output will always drive the line
[6:57] <shellbackpacific> clever: ah so the resistor prevents 3.3v from ever happening. that's the point?
[6:57] <clever> no, the resistor is the source of 3.3v
[6:57] <clever> the temp sensors either output 0v, or nothing
[6:58] <clever> so you need the resistor to set the level when nothing is sent
[6:59] <shellbackpacific> hm???still not quite getting it yet
[7:00] <clever> what happens if 2 devices try to drive the wire at once?, +3.3v from one and 0v from the other?
[7:00] <shellbackpacific> guess i'll read more???any advice for references?
[7:00] <shellbackpacific> not sure honestly
[7:00] <clever> in an idea design (0 losses everywhere), you would get infinity amps going between the 2 :P
[7:00] <clever> magic blue smoke coming out of everything!
[7:01] <shellbackpacific> ha
[7:01] <clever> by design, the one-wire devices never send +3.3v on the bus
[7:01] <clever> only 0v
[7:01] * s1gk1ll (~sigkill@bl10-110-29.dsl.telepac.pt) Quit (Ping timeout: 252 seconds)
[7:01] <clever> so it wont fry anything when 2 things try to transmit at once
[7:01] * windsurf_ (~windsurf_@ Quit (Quit: windsurf_)
[7:01] <clever> but if none of the sensors are sending data, the wire is left floating
[7:01] <clever> and wont have a set level
[7:02] <shellbackpacific> so how would that contrast with this parallex lcd i mentioned: http://www.parallax.com/tabid/768/productid/50/default.aspx
[7:03] <shellbackpacific> that's not 1-wire
[7:03] * pksato (~PEBKAC@unaffiliated/pksato) Quit (Quit: Problem Exists Between Keyboard And Chair)
[7:03] <clever> the resistor lets the data line reach 3.3v when nothing is sending
[7:03] <clever> each wire only has 1 in and 1 out
[7:03] <clever> so you never have to deal with the problem of multiple outputs
[7:04] <clever> the outputs are 0v or 3.3v, simple
[7:04] <shellbackpacific> ah so the "1-wire" refers to one wire for all i/o ?
[7:04] <clever> yeah
[7:04] <shellbackpacific> ah ha ok
[7:05] <clever> one-wire devices can also run without the power line, but thats optional
[7:05] <clever> needs more specialized setup
[7:05] <shellbackpacific> so that means a resistor is not necessary for that lcd since it's not 1-wire and has a 5v power req?
[7:05] <shellbackpacific> interesting
[7:05] <clever> and if the lcd runs at 5v, you need to be carefull
[7:06] <shellbackpacific> haha???blue smoke time?
[7:06] <clever> if thats a standard lcd driver, then the 8 data lines are bi-directional
[7:06] <clever> and there is another pin to set the direction
[7:06] <clever> so they can either be inputs to the lcd (drawing on the screen)
[7:06] <clever> or outputs, back to the pi
[7:06] <clever> but, the lcd runs at 5v, and the pi cant handle 5v
[7:07] <clever> so you need to tie that direction pin to whatever rail sets the lcd as the input (i forget, read the datasheet)
[7:07] * mikey_w (~mike@va-71-51-10-117.dhcp.embarqhsd.net) Quit (Ping timeout: 248 seconds)
[7:07] <clever> then the lcd will never output 5v, and you can use it safely
[7:07] <clever> might also be safer to just run the lcd directly on 3.3v
[7:07] <shellbackpacific> ok, yeah if you think 3.3 will work i'll pbly do that
[7:08] <clever> for most devices, its harmless to put too little voltage in
[7:08] <clever> it may not work, but it wont be damaged
[7:08] <shellbackpacific> until i have a better grasp
[7:08] <shellbackpacific> yep
[7:08] <shellbackpacific> awesome thanks for the tips i really appreciate it
[7:08] <clever> http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=35&t=16024
[7:08] <clever> and lcdproc would probly be the simplest way to get the lcd up and running
[7:09] <shellbackpacific> ok
[7:09] <clever> pre-made drivers
[7:09] <shellbackpacific> i'll check that out

[8:54] <Xabster> Hey, I'm considering a raspberry as a replacement for my laptop since I only watch movies and browse a few select websites on it, while in bed. I'm not sure if XBMC is needed to run/show 1080p movies or if a small linux distro would be better since I want to be able to browse, too.
[8:55] <ShiftPlusOne> You can use any distro (that supports the pi) and omxplayer.
[8:56] <Xabster> i see, so do you think that's the best solution? i don't need a mediacenter really, just a video player
[8:56] <Syliss> are you gonna hook it up to a tv?
[8:56] <Xabster> i just thought that the mediacenter built in distros were optimized for it
[8:56] <Xabster> yes
[8:56] <Xabster> or a pc monitor, maybe, but yes
[8:56] <ShiftPlusOne> Xabster, the media center distros use xbmc, which uses omxplayer as the backend.
[8:56] <Syliss> yeah
[8:57] <Xabster> sure, but there could still be issues with layers and extra features of a small linux distro
[8:57] <ShiftPlusOne> But I am not sure what your expectations are. It won't play just any 1080p video and browsing may be quite slow.
[8:57] <Xabster> it wont?
[8:57] <Syliss> no
[8:58] <Syliss> and yeah browsing can be painful
[8:58] * MilkyTunes (~ekodan@unaffiliated/ekodan) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[8:58] <Xabster> i'm certain there's a lot of people claiming it plays 1080p flawless
[8:58] <Syliss> h.264 it does
[8:58] * MilkyTunes (~ekodan@unaffiliated/ekodan) has joined #raspberrypi
[8:58] <Xabster> h264 includes 1080p
[8:58] <rymate1234> It definitely does 720p
[8:59] <rymate1234> Which is still HD
[8:59] <Syliss> its codec dependent
[8:59] <Xabster> okay, 720p is fine
[8:59] <Xabster> i'll accept that, but browsing is painful?
[8:59] <Syliss> it can be
[9:00] <Syliss> do you have a 256 or 512mb pi?
[9:00] <Xabster> neither yet, but it will be 512
[9:00] <Syliss> ok
[9:00] <Xabster> i'll probably get it tonight, and i'm exited!
[9:00] <Syliss> what kind of sites do you plan on visiting?
[9:00] <Xabster> facebook, gmail, reddit, imgur
[9:00] <ShiftPlusOne> Again, depends on what you expect. If you think you can fire up firefox with lots of addons and 50 tabs open, you're going to have a bad time.
[9:00] <Xabster> it's bedtime reading/fun
[9:01] <Xabster> i hope to do single/dual tab chrome possibly?
[9:01] <Raspiman> 1080p flawless here
[9:01] <rymate1234> Good luck
[9:01] <Raspiman> but navigation when the movie is playing? verry slow..
[9:01] <rymate1234> Xabster: Chrome doesn't work on the pi. Chromium, however, does
[9:01] <Xabster> yeah, same same but different
[9:02] <bin_bash> Idk if anyone here can help me, but when using obmenu in openbox, I get this error:Invalid output from pipe-menu /home/anon7/.config/openbox/scripts/xdg-menu

[9:02] <ShiftPlusOne> Xabster, it seems like there are people who get a pi and are pleasently surpised with what they get and there are others who complain, even though they use it for the same things. I think it depends on your expectations and it might be best to get a pi and see how it goes. Even if you don't use it for what you intended to, it's still a handy computer to have.
[9:03] <Xabster> indeed
[9:03] <Raspiman> And you can learn basic linux for less money :)
[9:03] <Xabster> i don't have that high expectations i think, but I demand at least 720p if it's to be used for media playback
[9:03] <Xabster> so that's where i am atm
[9:03] <rymate1234> I'm currently trying to get my pi to tether to my phone via USB
[9:03] <Xabster> i hoped for 1080p
[9:03] <rymate1234> And failing
[9:04] <Xabster> Raspiman, less money than install a free VM on your normal PC ? :)
[9:04] <Raspiman> 720p / 1080p will work (.mkv container less then aprox 20GB h.264)
[9:04] <Raspiman> yes, but the raspi is fun m8 :)
[9:04] <ShiftPlusOne> Xabster, like we said earlier, that depends on how the video is encoded. 1080p works great for properly encoded videos.
[9:04] <Xabster> ok
[9:06] <rymate1234> Xabster: If you play minecraft http://pi.minecraft.net/ might be of interest to you

[9:11] <Xabster> how would the raspberry handle being a VNC client instead of browsing itself?
[9:11] <Xabster> VNC via LAN to a server or desktop PC that renders the websites
[9:11] <Xabster> but video playback would be local still
[9:12] <rymate1234> Badly
[9:12] <Xabster> video + a few select websites is all I need, and a velcro'd PI on the back of a monitor would be very cool to have

[9:13] <rymate1234> ISP
[9:13] <rymate1234> Idk
[9:13] <rymate1234> Never used the pi as a vnc client, only as a server

[10:36] <wombledom> What causes a pi to freeze and ouput no errors besides a bad power supply?
[10:36] <Tachyon`> a noisy power supply
[10:36] <[Saint]> One of these days I need to go through and see what can be recovered from the thousands of disks I have for the thing.
[10:36] <[Saint]> though I suspect it mostly pointless.
[10:36] <Tachyon`> lol, they're CF2 disks, they'll read fine even today
[10:37] <Tachyon`> my old spectrum+3 ones do
[10:37] <Tachyon`> your drive probably won't work though
[10:37] <Tachyon`> the rubber drive belt will have perished
[10:37] <Tachyon`> so it'll need another one
[10:37] <wombledom> Can usb devices produce noise that eventually freeze the pi?
[10:37] <Tachyon`> maybe but it's highly unlikely
[10:37] <[Saint]> Play my bad self some Saboteur...
[10:37] <Tachyon`> I'd say it's the psu

[10:38] <wombledom> Wifi dongle on a hub and an external powered hdd
[10:39] <Tachyon`> you shuold probably use a PSU of at least 1500mA and link out your polyfuse just to eliminate psu errors
[10:39] <wombledom> The thing is that it only freezes when rtorrent is running
[10:39] <Tachyon`> as the polyfuse is the limiting factor
[10:39] <Tachyon`> different psus may give the same symptoms
[10:39] <Tachyon`> as n o more than 750mA can pass through the fuse
[10:39] <wombledom> Its a 1a charger, too low?
[10:39] <[Saint]> No.
[10:39] <Tachyon`> err, well, might be, it depends
[10:40] * [Saint] highly doubts this.
[10:40] <wombledom> All the usb devices are powered on their own too
[10:40] <[Saint]> 1A is fine for that setup.
[10:40] <Tachyon`> doubt as much as you like, I had to use 2 on one of mine, granted it had a 1.8" IDE drive on it but still
[10:40] <Tachyon`> if it were fs corruption I'd expect the errors that go with that
[10:40] <Tachyon`> for example:
[10:41] <Tachyon`> http://www.pokenet.co.uk/misc/files.pi/piwtf.jpg
[10:41] <Tachyon`> that
[10:41] <Tachyon`> silently failing every time just seems odd
[10:41] <Tachyon`> and screams voltage drop to me, but heh
[10:41] <wombledom> I don't get errors though, it just halts
[10:42] <[Saint]> There'll be errors /somewhere/.
[10:42] <Tachyon`> are you running X?
[10:42] <wombledom> Not in my logs either
[10:42] <wombledom> No, its a headless servee
[10:43] <wombledom> server*
[10:43] <Tachyon`> have you tried a different sd card?
[10:43] <wombledom> It just boots the firmware and kernel off the sd and uses the hdd as root
[10:43] <[Saint]> The system wouldn't(read as: shouldn't) just halt without something going wrong and crying somewhere, but they may not actually be making it to the disk.
[10:43] <Tachyon`> if it's headless how would he know
[10:44] <Tachyon`> your system needs a head
[10:44] <Tachyon`> until you've diagnosed this one
[10:44] <wombledom> I've had it freeze with it connected to a monitor, the cursor just stops blinking
[10:44] <Tachyon`> hrm
[10:44] <Tachyon`> that is odd actually
[10:45] <Tachyon`> have you just got the one pi?
[10:45] <wombledom> It might be my really cheap hdd enclosure too, I might try a different external drive
[10:45] <wombledom> I actually have two, one for playing with gpio
[10:45] <Tachyon`> try swapping them, it's /just/ possible you may have a faulty pi
[10:46] <Tachyon`> it's not likely, but it is possible
[10:46] <[Saint]> It is an easy test.
[10:46] <[Saint]> you don;t need another enclosure, you simply need to eliminate the ones you have.
[10:46] <[Saint]> ...for instance, simply try *without* them.
[10:46] <[Saint]> DOes it freeze then?

[10:49] <[Saint]> If you have a local hackerspace, borrow one for a few minutes if you don't own one yourself.
[10:49] <[Saint]> No, you don;t need to cut any wires.
[10:49] <[Saint]> you're testing from the Pi, not the supply itself.

[10:51] <[Saint]> ...and attitudes like that *really* help...
[10:51] <[Saint]> If you think there's something wrong with "being a nerd", that's your problem ;)
[10:52] <[Saint]> People will bully others for anything. Just do what you want. Bothering about what other people think is totally useless :)

[11:03] <[Saint]> Maybe this will balance it out: I ordered a raspberry pi, they sent me one, then they sent anohter - I sent them an email saying "errr - watcha doin' guys?" and they were all like "Oh - whoops, oh well - keep it! Oh, and here's a $20 voucher for being honest about our shipping errors!"
[11:03] <drobban> what about RS?
[11:03] <[Saint]> So, I got the one I ordered, one free, and a $20 voucher for telling them they messed up.
[11:03] <Raspiman> [Saint] thats nice!
[11:03] <Raspiman> we make it even now :)
[11:04] <[Saint]> Apparently I pointed out to them that they had been shipping people random extra units, so, I guess even despite the free pi and the voucher I still saved them some money.

[12:07] <jks> anyone knows of an easy way to add a beeper, buzzer or similar to the raspberrypi - that doesn't require any extra components? (i.e. I looked at buzzers that required me to add a simple circuit with a zener-diode and a resistor)
[12:08] <gordonDrogon> jks, there are some buzzers you just give voltage to and they go: buzzzzzzzzz
[12:08] <gordonDrogon> or beep.
[12:08] <gordonDrogon> just need to find the right one.
[12:09] <gordonDrogon> but those tend to be power hungry too...
[12:09] <jks> gordonDrogon, would be great if I could fine one... got any suggestions on where to look and "how to know" if I got the right one?
[12:09] * mgbowman (~mgbowman@chello062178011248.4.11.vie.surfer.at) has joined #raspberrypi
[12:09] <jks> I have found tonnes of buzzers for 3.3V on RS/Farnell and places like that... but it doesn't seem easy to pick one that works without building a circuit
[12:10] <gordonDrogon> this buzzes at 2.3KHz http://www.tandyonline.co.uk/components/buzzers-transducers/miniature-3-3v-pcb-buzzer.html
[12:10] <gordonDrogon> however it also needs 30mA - and the Pi Max on GPIO is 16mA.
[12:10] <gordonDrogon> so you'd need a little transistor to drive it.
[12:10] <jks> ah, okay - I though I could drive a bit more from the Pi GPIOs... hmm..
[12:11] <ShiftPlusOne> Can the pi source as much as it can sink, or can it sink more?
[12:11] <jks> I wonder if something exists that could be connected to the +5V on the GPIO and then take a GPIO pin as a signal
[12:12] <gordonDrogon> jks, not a single component, no. you'll likely blow up the Pi's gpio input
[12:12] <gordonDrogon> ShiftPlusOne, AIUI it's the same each way.
[12:12] <jks> gordonDrogon, ah okay :-|
[12:12] <gordonDrogon> if you can find one of those pizeo discs then you can use a bit of software to make it beep.
[12:13] <spacebug^> you only need a transistor and a resistor
[12:13] <ShiftPlusOne> hm
[12:13] <jks> spacebug^, I don't know any electronics, so I would probably fry off everything before I even got started :-)
[12:13] <spacebug^> hehe ;)
[12:14] <spacebug^> well then you could by the extension card
[12:14] <gordonDrogon> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Electronic_component_piezo.jpg
[12:14] <jks> I found something called the "Berry Board" that has a buzzer that can be plugged right into the RPi... but unfortunately it is not sold as a finished product... you have to make it yourself
[12:14] <spacebug^> oh wait, maybe that was to build oneself also

[12:15] <gordonDrogon> ho well. nee to go shopping. big bake day today. couple of 100 scones to make & freeze... laters!
[12:15] <jks> so perhaps if a breakout board exists with RFID and an LED or a beeper that could be software controlled... that would be fantastic
[12:16] <wombledom> Argh my rpi froze again :(
[12:17] <wombledom> Its a different pi, different drive, different wifi...
[12:18] <gordonDrogon> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ij_HR_kr_eg <- something I'm experimenting with :)
[12:18] <jks> hehe, reminds me of the 80s
[12:19] <gordonDrogon> that's an 80?? speaker though - I'm almost certianly abusing the gpio pin it's connected to ...
[12:19] <gordonDrogon> don't try this at home, etc. ;-)
[12:19] <gordonDrogon> right - the coop calls. out of flour error!
[12:19] <ShiftPlusOne> Didn't know you were a musician too =D
[12:19] <jks> is it using PWM to generate the tones, or how does it work?

[12:38] <gordonDrogon> Raspiman, you can - but that program won't do anything with it - it was just a quick demo program for something else. the soft-tone library will play multiple tones at the same time.

[12:39] <Raspiman> nice, so you can make cords with multiply speakers
[12:40] <gordonDrogon> or mix the gpio outputs together - simply join then via 330?? resistors - might work...
[12:40] <Raspiman> my wifes want to know :)O
[12:41] <gordonDrogon> the trick would be to mix it in software, however this really is 1-bit audio output - it's right back to the Apple II days!
[12:41] <Raspiman> thnx for your answer
[12:41] <gordonDrogon> there are better ways to play sounds on the Pi using the "proper" sound system & the hdmi output or 3.5mm jack...
[12:42] <Raspiman> yes haha

[14:44] <ShadowJK> nid0; well if you've got a card with slc flash, the endurance is indeed around 100k
[14:44] <ShadowJK> mlc around 10k, and tlc around 3-5k
[14:44] <jelly1> I mean the SD card will probably outlife the time your run the Pi

[14:44] <ShadowJK> for the raw flash cells
[14:44] <gordonDrogon> I'm still not convinced wear leveling works at all on SD cards.
[14:45] <ShadowJK> even mlc is kinda hard to find in a sd card these days..
[14:45] <ShadowJK> gordonDrogon; dynamic only, most likely
[14:45] <gordonDrogon> and of-course dd'ing 2GB into it more or less removes any leveling that could be done in those sectors.
[14:45] <IalexI> does anyone have experience with running the pi 24/7 for a longer time?
[14:45] <nid0> my pi's have been running 24/7 for a year
[14:45] <gordonDrogon> IalexI, I've had pi's with uptimes of weeks, but they've not been doing anything significant.
[14:45] <IalexI> nid0, no hardware failure so far?
[14:45] <nid0> ofc not
[14:46] <wombledom> My pi ran for weeks until I got to rtorrent :p
[14:46] <jelly1> sure there will be hardware failures

[14:52] <gordonDrogon> wombledom, it will only slow down if you're overclocking. don't overclock.
[14:53] <wombledom> I'm not, it doesnt seem to do much anyway

[15:03] <tebruno99> anything would be slow at 4k blocks
[15:03] <wombledom> 1M is what I dd at
[15:03] <tebruno99> same here
[15:04] <nid0> when you do your dd tests you are ensuring you sync as part of it right?
[15:04] <tebruno99> nid0 you always write more than you have of ram
[15:05] <tebruno99> but you can force sync if want yeah
[15:05] <tebruno99> not to hard on the Pi though
[15:05] <nid0> that doesnt change the fact that a good chunk of it will still end up getting cached, you need to sync if you're going to produce a figure that isnt baloney

[15:09] <nid0> i'm not sure what point you're really making... good for you, you personally happen to be writing a huge amount more data than the pi has ram so get a figure thats mostly accurate ish, or you (and the general anybody I was talking to when you were all discussing dd benchmarks) could just add one quick flag to the end of the dd to get an actual correct figure for benchmarking the card
[15:10] <nid0> its not uncommon having people in here with their w0wzorz speeds who it turns out are dding 64 1M blocks to their cards
[15:10] <gordonDrogon> I've used 'bonnie' over the years to do disk benchmarks - and while it's not perfect and may have flaws, it's given me a good idea of what to expect - but one of the things to expect is that running disk benchmarks is boring and you might as well just use the machine as it is unless you need to eek out every last bit/sec...

[15:36] <LambdaDusk> I notice some programs take up less ram on the Pi than onb my PC, is that just an illusion?
[15:37] <yeik> LambdaDusk, what sort of programs?
[15:38] <LambdaDusk> yeik: Haskell compiler, gcc, my own test programs
[15:38] <yeik> smaller binaries, and less resources available?
[15:39] * nomous (~nomous@ has joined #raspberrypi
[15:39] <LambdaDusk> so when less is available, linux will assign less?
[15:39] <LambdaDusk> but are they actually smaller when compiled for ARM or is that just a coincidence? I couldn't find a good answer online
[15:39] <yeik> not sure about your own programs. unless you include a lot of stuff. but to notice much memory it would have to be a large program anyway. most things are very small
[15:40] <yeik> I don't really know, might want to go to a gcc/haskel room and ask if they have noticed. i haven't tried compiling anything yet.
[15:42] <LambdaDusk> i was afraid the ghc will not run because of the 512 MB but it doesn't even use half of that - unlike the x86 counterpart
[15:43] <yeik> it also doesn't have the cpu power to process as much
[15:43] <tombrough> In theory RISC systems such as ARM should take more instructions not less than x86 CISC systems.
[15:44] * ReggieUK (~ReggieUK@ has joined #raspberrypi
[15:44] * ChanServ sets mode +o ReggieUK
[15:46] <LambdaDusk> yes but the ARM has way more registers to use, reducing the need for local variables to be put on in the RAM and thus less read/write instructions, too?
[15:48] <tombrough> so the size of the binary might be bigger but the size of the program in RAM would be smaller perhaps?
[15:48] <wombledom> Hmm why is my load so high when there's only two processes using 1%
[15:49] <LambdaDusk> is what I gathered but I asked here in case I am wrong - it's only what I heard in my Computer Science classes

[15:51] <wombledom> Yes, with transmission running
[15:51] <gordonDrogon> load is a measure of the number of processes that can run at any instant.
[15:51] <ShadowJK> Things other than cpu use is counted into loadavg
[15:52] <ShadowJK> such as i/o business
[15:52] <gordonDrogon> if a process is waiting on I/O, it's considered running and is counted.
[15:52] <wombledom> Yeah I'm using a wifi dongle
[15:52] <ShadowJK> (as a side effect of how it's calculated)
[15:53] <LambdaDusk> wombledom: Load of 1 means that the IO is running at capacity, 0.25 means that in average, a quarter of capacities are used - can usually come from network and processes that use polling

[16:00] <gordonDrogon> The Load Average on Linux is not neccessarily to do with IO. It's a function of the number of programs that are running or in the queue to be run.
[16:00] <gordonDrogon> Linux conisders programs waiting on IO to be runnable, so they're counted.
[16:00] <gordonDrogon> but pure CPU tasks will increase the load average too.

[16:29] <LambdaDusk> it's like telling an 80's nerd about the internet and what we actually use it for
[16:29] <deferred> the same goes for probably over 90% of the 'desktop' computers in peoples homes..utilized probably less than 10%
[16:29] <deferred> and the sad part, most of the utilization is the bloated operating systems
[16:29] <LambdaDusk> no what I mean it's actually amazingh we can afford to "waste" that power
[16:30] <deferred> agreed
[16:30] <LambdaDusk> heeeeeeeeey I can use the pi to get back into OS programming...
[16:30] <Scriven> deferred, AWESOME! gonna grow... raspberries ... in there? ;)
[16:30] <deferred> also amazing we can afford to waste most things, at least in most of the western world

[16:32] <Scriven> chatting here isn't wasting electricity! bah!
[16:32] <deferred> i tried turning my 256 pi into a remote sdr receiver, but rtl_tcp killed memory
[16:33] <LambdaDusk> i tried mine as a super-retro-console but the SNES hardly works at all unless you overcloc
[16:33] <Scriven> there are safe o/c settings tho.
[16:33] <LambdaDusk> molten SoC is under warranty, right?
[16:34] <LambdaDusk> yeah I used those
[16:34] <LambdaDusk> and there seems to be no ARM n64 emulator... grrr

[20:02] <FergyA> Hey clever, you wouldnt know by chance if I need to hook up both RTS and CTS if I'm only sending in one direction?
[20:03] <kaste> zastaph: it's the less ressource hungry of the two I believe
[20:03] <FergyA> I'm hoping to get away with just hooking up CTS
[20:04] <clever> FergyA: i believe you can get away with one, for the high bandwidth direction
[20:04] <FergyA> great
[20:04] <FergyA> going to give that a try ^^
[20:04] <clever> FergyA: but i forget what one that is, the xbee datasheet should clearly show which one means the input buffer is full
[20:04] <FergyA> yeah, pretty sure its CTS
[20:05] <clever> if the oposite line is disabled in the xbee, then the xbee should ignore it, and transmit always
[20:05] <FergyA> CTS clears the pi to send to the xbee, RTS clears the xbee to send to the pi
[20:05] <FergyA> and since taking it high = stop not connecting it i dont think would do anything
[20:05] <clever> i think the 2 can be enabled seperately in the xbee firmware
[20:06] <FergyA> yessir they can
[20:06] <FergyA> why they didnt put CTS on P1-GPIO I don't know :/
[20:06] <FergyA> not liking having to run another wire
[20:06] <Litecoin> clever, will an old PATA drive run as fast as SD?
[20:06] * f8ld is now known as f8l
[20:06] <clever> Litecoin: the write times may be better, but seek times will obviously be worse
[20:07] <clever> i think the usb is going to be the bottleneck for bandwidth, not the pata interface
[20:07] <clever> FergyA: in the case of AVR chips, they only have a 1 byte buffer, and no real flow control in hardware
[20:07] <Litecoin> yeah, especially when I use USB Wifi adapteur as well
[20:07] <clever> FergyA: so all flow control has to be implemented in firmware, within the received irq
[20:08] <clever> FergyA: not sure about the xbee, but if its the same, that makes it easy to do odd setups
[20:08] <FergyA> we will see ^^

[20:09] <clever> something else you could use, to reduce the errors more
[20:09] <FergyA> I wish I could use one of the NC wires on my ribbon cable to get this across...
[20:09] <clever> the xbee api mode
[20:09] <FergyA> yeah, i did consider that
[20:09] <clever> in api mode, you send the xbee packets, with checksums
[20:09] <clever> so if the checksum isnt valid, it wont send it over the air
[20:09] <FergyA> but theres really not a lot of software out there which supports that
[20:09] <FergyA> and i dont feel like making a program to do it
[20:09] <clever> yeah, i had to write custom software for both ends
[20:10] <FergyA> hoping this will work
[20:10] <Hopsy> I see a raspberrypi logo when my raspberry pi boots, how do I remove this?
[20:10] <FergyA> the manual flat out says "if sending messages greater than 1000 bytes you must enable flow control"

[20:12] <FergyA> only about a mile up :P

[20:15] <FergyA> so im not super concerned with live telemetry
[20:15] <clever> perfect
[20:15] <clever> oh
[20:15] <FergyA> as i fully expect to lose the link
[20:16] <FergyA> the thing pulls 8 gs off the pad and goes ~mach 1
[20:16] <clever> youll want an avr and maybe flash then, to log data
[20:16] <clever> there are boards designed for just this too
[20:16] <clever> *gets link*
[20:16] <FergyA> yeah, but theyre super expensive from what id seen :P
[20:16] <syntac> clever, is x0vncserver supported on rpi? is there an install/setup guide that you know of?
[20:16] <clever> syntac: i havent tried it, but its in one of the vnc packages in apt-get
[20:16] <clever> FergyA: https://www.sparkfun.com/products/9530
[20:16] <FergyA> our sensors are all handled by an arduino, and the pi is in charge of GPS, camera, and wireless
[20:16] <clever> FergyA: cheaper then a pi

[20:18] <clever> then give a single stream, like gps:.... baro:... into the openlog
[20:18] <clever> camera, thats a bit more complex
[20:18] <FergyA> camera was the main reason I went with a pi
[20:18] <clever> the openlog may have some lenght-prefixed modes
[20:19] <clever> another option, more manual, and it depends on how much data you need to store
[20:19] <clever> https://www.sparkfun.com/products/301
[20:20] <clever> 2mbyte of flash, $2.95, how much video would that hold?
[20:20] <FergyA> about .005 seconds :P
[20:20] <clever> ok, that wont work
[20:20] <FergyA> considering we're capping at 1080p 30fps
[20:20] <clever> lol
[20:20] <Gadgetoid> Shazam!
[20:20] <clever> id say either go with a plain old gopro
[20:21] <clever> or maybe https://www.sparkfun.com/products/9802
[20:21] <FergyA> yeah, problem with that is the project requires that we recover it remotely
[20:21] <FergyA> soooo
[20:21] <FergyA> pi it was :P
[20:21] <clever> download the data after it lands?
[20:21] <clever> without picking it up?
[20:21] <FergyA> precisely
[20:21] <clever> ah
[20:21] <FergyA> that is the requirement
[20:22] <FergyA> from up to a mile away even...
[20:22] <clever> the arduino and xbee could be setup to read the sd card back out, after it lands
[20:22] <clever> but the data rates are pretty slow, for 1080p 30fps
[20:22] <FergyA> yeah, the video fortunately isnt required
[20:22] <clever> id download the gps logs, or just get a live gps feed
[20:22] <clever> then go find it :P
[20:22] <FergyA> as thats something we added on
[20:23] <FergyA> that's the plan, though we have a dog tracker in the nose cone
[20:23] <SpeedEvil> what do you want to read out?
[20:23] <FergyA> we need to read pressure, temperature, humidity, UV radiation, and irradiance
[20:23] <SpeedEvil> over several k will be providers

[20:24] <clever> neat
[20:24] <FergyA> the back end is the camera gimbal, middle the pi and sensors, and the forward the altimeters
[20:25] <clever> i would put something like rubber bands on both of the hoops at either end

[20:53] <clever> its in several packages, they kept forking eachother
[20:53] <TheBrayn> which is the latest version of the linux kernel that runs stable on the rpi?
[20:53] <syntac> i think i'll just spend the money and buy a htpc :p
[20:53] <syntac> clever, thanks for the info on x0vncserver though that'll be helpful in the future
[20:54] <clever> syntac: its only a software problem, you can just compile x0vncserver from source

[21:09] <clever> did it atleast build gpio_list?

[21:16] <clever> for the uart
[21:16] <FergyA> i need to toggle gpio30 to alt3 to serve as CTS
[21:16] <gordonDrogon> Ah right.
[21:16] <gordonDrogon> I have looked at hacking that into the gpio program, but I'm in 2 minds about it though.

[21:19] <FergyA> if it were the other way around id be in business
[21:20] <gordonDrogon> there was a lot of decisions made at the time re. GPIO, etc. I think we got a good compromise.
[21:20] <bin_bash> I'm running arch-arm with openbox and obmenu and I want to use xdg-menu and I installed archlinux-menus and python-xdg and openbox-xdg and I added the entry to the rc.xml file
[21:21] <bin_bash> however whenever I try to use the xdg-menu, I get: Invalid output from pipe-menu /home/anon7/.config/openbox/scripts/xdg-menu
[21:21] <bin_bash> idk wtf i'm doing wrong
[21:21] <FergyA> yeah, its just that RTS isnt all that useful from what ive read
[21:21] <FergyA> whereas CTS is going to be the one you typically need
[21:21] <clever> FergyA: the rev1 board didnt have P5 at all
[21:21] <FergyA> yeah, i know
[21:21] <FergyA> im definitely glad its there
[21:22] <clever> the only way i can get CTS is by hooking to an smd pad
[21:22] <FergyA> yeah, I have an R1 as my backup...

[21:23] <clever> ive heard that the ethernet chip eats a decent ammount of power
[21:23] <clever> but its also the hub
[21:23] <clever> so you would loose a port by disabling/removing it
[21:23] <FergyA> yeah, the model A is way more power efficient ive heard

[21:25] <gordonDrogon> software handshaking then?
[21:26] <FergyA> we pulled the usb off to hardwire it, its kinda going up in a rocket so I don't trust a friction fit connector
[21:27] <clever> gordonDrogon: do you know if the pi supports non-standard baud rates?
[21:27] <gordonDrogon> clever, there's a magic rune you can put in /boot/config.txt to change the clock going into the baud rate generator - I've seen it used for midi for example, so I guess the answer is yes, but you'll need to do some searching to find the right runes.

[21:28] <clever> and it would calculate the baud rate on the fly, based on the serial block

[21:31] <FUZxxl> I heard from several people (including me) that their Pi was suddently down. May it be possible that there are heat issues?
[21:31] <gordonDrogon> clever, might work - the main issue is getting the baud rate from userland into the kernel - they're all pre-defined constants.
[21:31] <clever> gordonDrogon: hmmmm, i see references to bootcfg.txt in the start.elf file
[21:31] <clever> oh
[21:31] <clever> i wondered where the blockage was
[21:32] <gordonDrogon> FUZxxl, maybe the chances of 1 or 2 Pi's out of a million being offline at the same time is > 1

[21:35] <gordonDrogon> pretty normal.
[21:36] <clever> FergyA: its likely the accuracy of the baud rate
[21:36] <FUZxxl> It might be that the fact that I ran some CPU intensive computations led to a temparature spike
[21:36] <clever> gordonDrogon: do you know if the baud offset is 'stable'?
[21:36] <FergyA> yeah, i figure...
[21:36] <gordonDrogon> clever, no idea really - I've only ever used it at 115200 baud ...
[21:36] <gordonDrogon> FergyA, does seem odd though - I presume they're not responding to peoples requests?
[21:36] <FergyA> wish i could :P
[21:37] <clever> FergyA: hmmmm, if its a similar problem to the avr's, higher baud rates may work better, due to how the division works
[21:37] <FergyA> well the only baud rate left is 230400
[21:37] <clever> 115200 had too many errors?
[21:37] <FergyA> yup
[21:37] <FergyA> im going to try one other thing first though
[21:38] <FergyA> going to switch over to UART1 and see if its any better

[22:11] <na85> FergyA: from what i'm reading it seems the PL011 uart is inaccessible because the pins aren't connected to the expansion header
[22:11] <FergyA> yeah, its odd
[22:11] <na85> (which seems rather silly, but...)
[22:11] <FergyA> im getting so much conflicting info its ridiculous
[22:11] <na85> yeah same
[22:11] <FergyA> i have 2 sources that say that gpio 14\15 can be mapped to uart0 or 1
[22:12] <FergyA> and 2 sources that say it cant
[22:12] <FergyA> one of which is the project wiki...
[22:12] <gordonDrogon> :)
[22:12] <FergyA> the wiki being one that say you can
[22:12] <gordonDrogon> give me a mo and I'll check the hardware manual.
[22:12] <FergyA> cool, thanks
[22:13] <na85> apparently there are alternative tx/rx pins in the 30's somewhere
[22:13] <FergyA> yeah, those arent hooked up though :/
[22:13] <gordonDrogon> Yes, you can change the functions of pins BCM_GPIO 14/15 from uart 0 to uart1
[22:14] <gordonDrogon> ALT0 is uart0, ALT5 is uart1.
[22:14] <FergyA> ok, and do you have any idea how i can enable uart1? I've mapped the pins
[22:14] <FergyA> ive got it set to alt5
[22:14] <mgottschlag> shouldn't linux per default use that uart?
[22:14] <FergyA> but have no idea what device to talk to, I dont see a ttyAMA1...
[22:14] <gordonDrogon> I think to enable ama1, you need to first write the kernel driver for it.
[22:15] <mgottschlag> I thought, uart1 was the PL011 uart used by linux, and uart0 the mini uart which isn't used by anything
[22:15] * FergyA bangs head on desk
[22:15] <gordonDrogon> from a freshly booted pi:
[22:15] <gordonDrogon> | 15 | 14 | TxD | ALT0 | High |
[22:15] <gordonDrogon> | 16 | 15 | RxD | ALT0 | High |
[22:16] <na85> FergyA: if you need full uart you could use an I2C breakout
[22:16] <gordonDrogon> Linux (or more likely the bottloader) sets them to ALT0.
[22:16] <FergyA> I just need a UART that doesnt have a broken clock
[22:16] <na85> FergyA: 555 timer on a PCB? lol
[22:17] <mgottschlag> the divisor of the mini uart can be set very flexibly, but you probably have to modify the driver
[22:17] <mgottschlag> (if your clock is off by a constant frequency - if it changes too much, then that's a different problem)
[22:17] * Jck_true (~jcktrue.d@unaffiliated/jcktrue/x-390518) Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[22:17] <FergyA> yeah, but to make things worse i dont have a scope to find out what im off by
[22:17] <FergyA> so i get to use the imperial method
[22:17] <FergyA> aka trial and error
[22:18] <mgottschlag> last time I had such a problem, I let the divisor register count from 1 to 255 while transmitting data (but that was on bare metal, no linux, and I did it because I didn't know what frequency I was running at)
[22:19] <mgottschlag> that way I saw which range worked, and could just take the center of those values
[22:19] <gordonDrogon> page 176 of the manual: the uart on the Pi is the "full" uart and that's ALT0 on pins 14&15.
[22:19] <mgottschlag> a lot of work though
[22:19] <na85> FergyA: couldn't you rig up a breadboard to compare your output frequency to a known frequency?
[22:19] <FergyA> I do have a frequency counter actually
[22:20] <FergyA> i could try hooking it up to that
[22:20] <FergyA> just remembered i had one on my multimeter :P

[22:23] * jankyhellface (~jankyhell@ has joined #raspberrypi
[22:23] <clever> FergyA: i'm wondering, is ttyAMA0 uart0 or uart1 ?
[22:23] <clever> FergyA: maybe you had the wrong hardware flow control one?
[22:23] <gordonDrogon> Obvous question, but I'm presuming you're tested the xbees on some other device first?
[22:23] <FergyA> maybe... ill give it a try in a min here
[22:24] <FergyA> i have, i can send data from my desktop to laptop nps
[22:24] <gordonDrogon> what baud rate are you using on the Pi?
[22:24] <FergyA> im trying to use 115200
[22:25] <gordonDrogon> oh ok.
[22:25] <FergyA> but when i do i get garbage out the other end
[22:25] <gordonDrogon> I've used that to program ATmegas in the past and to exchange a lot of data with them.
[22:25] <FergyA> only baud rate that works without losing like everything is 9600
[22:25] <gordonDrogon> also to drive the 4D systems displays - exchanging a lot of data with them too.
[22:25] <FergyA> and id rather not send 5ish megs at 9600 baud ty :P
[22:25] <gordonDrogon> You know that there is a bug when you open the serial port? It sends a spurious byte down?
[22:26] <FergyA> yeah, ive noticed that
[22:26] <clever> he
[22:26] <mgottschlag> actually, the pl011 uart also has a clock which can be freely modified
[22:26] <FergyA> i know
[22:26] <clever> gordonDrogon: he was sending large files with minicom and zmodem
[22:26] <FergyA> i wish i could get to the dang thing
[22:26] <clever> gordonDrogon: it only opens the port once
[22:26] <gordonDrogon> so keep the port open - ok.
[22:27] <FergyA> yeah, arch doesnt have a driver for it either it seems :/
[22:27] <gordonDrogon> have you tried a hard-wired link between Pi & desktop too ?
[22:27] <clever> FergyA: i have a crazy idea
[22:27] <clever> FergyA: run ppp on ttyAMA0
[22:27] <clever> then you will be sending tcp/ip frames, with checksums and auto retransmit
[22:27] <clever> then you can just ftp the files out
[22:28] <FergyA> yeah, i was thinking that or ssh
[22:28] <gordonDrogon> might not be too good for real-time data...

[22:28] <gordonDrogon> er - just take the SD card out then....
[22:28] <clever> and it has to retrieve the data remotely
[22:28] <FergyA> the contest im part of requires the data be retrieved remotely
[22:29] <gordonDrogon> a,h ok. contest. 3g modem

[22:30] <FergyA> precisely
[22:30] <clever> makes sense
[22:31] <gordonDrogon> ok, so you launch the squib, it comes down and you then need to communicate with it before you get to it ... quite an intersting problem! I'm suspecting it's the first one to get their data back (whatever the data is) that wins?
[22:31] <FergyA> not quite, its a bit broader than that
[22:31] <gordonDrogon> ok
[22:32] <FergyA> theres a few different criteria for judging

[23:26] <gordonDrogon> the pl011 is the current ama0...
[23:26] <FergyA> eh, what i read said the pl011 is UART1...
[23:26] <FergyA> god i love the amount of misinformation on this
[23:26] <gyeben> well, you can add "current_limit_override=0x5A000020" into your config.txt
[23:26] <gyeben> but I don't really understand what it does
[23:27] <FergyA> gordonDrogon: http://lavalink.com/2012/04/more-on-raspberry-pi-serial-ports/ is what I was referencing
[23:28] <FergyA> it very well could be wrong though
[23:30] <gordonDrogon> FergyA, it's not wrong, but it's not really telling you anything other than that the pl011 is the uart used on the Pi on gpio pins 14/15.
[23:30] <na85> gyeben: when you set it to 0x5a000020 it disables the SMPS current protection
[23:30] <gordonDrogon> it confuses things though by mentioning that the miniuart is good for console - when it's not used at all in the pi.
[23:31] <na85> gyeben: if you're overclocking your pi, then the overvoltage can draw more current than the power supply will allow you to source
[23:31] <na85> gyeben: so if you disable the current limiting, you can avoid that problem
[23:31] <na85> gyeben: i'm not aware of any other use for setting that flag
