Timestamps are in GMT/BST.

[0:00] <aaa801> otherwise your going to get about 0.02 fps
[0:00] <ComraDerpyPi> it runs on svgalib as well, like half life gold (an engine id give my left arm for on linux)
[0:01] * Milos (~Milos@pdpc/supporter/student/milos) Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[0:01] <ComraDerpyPi> cause that would bring counter strike 1.5 (not completely legit) and we could throw a party :3
[0:02] <Jck_true> i'm more curious about the source code for star was jedi knight being released :P
[0:03] <ComraDerpyPi> was that an earlier one? i think i remember that running on toasters as well
[0:05] <ComraDerpyPi> still compiling. if i get this done ill be a HPB on a Netherlands quake server. how the linux gods intended. :)
[0:07] * Milos (~Milos@pdpc/supporter/student/milos) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:07] <ComraDerpyPi> save the binary make my own distro like how they made a commodore distro for their low powered clones
[0:07] <ComraDerpyPi> AND enourage people to stop off at active electronics to buy more element 14 pi's with MY free sd card :)
[0:08] <ozzzy> for games?
[0:10] <ComraDerpyPi> yup. i was thinking of building a links -g, irc, other random CLI stuff with quakeforge on SliTaz
[0:11] <ComraDerpyPi> when i was 13 this Pi did everything my computer did
[0:11] <ozzzy> I didn't understand more that a couple of words of that
[0:11] <ComraDerpyPi> except that was redhat 5.2 on sparc's and IA-32
[0:12] <ComraDerpyPi> when i was 13, i played quakeforge on CLI, ran redhat 5.2. did everything this machine does. but i want to get more people on the bandwagon. build a distro out of slitaz
[0:13] <ComraDerpyPi> svgalib is so powerful that this device is awesome
[0:15] <ComraDerpyPi> *why. sorry..... urk.... i tend to ramble. time for me to quit.

[0:20] <hglm> I noticed the Pi boots/runs faster if you disable all the system loggin by rsyslog...it is set up in Raspbian for a full blown server. Writing to the sdcard all the time isn't good for performance. Is this a well known optimization?

[1:05] <pentarex> Hello guys. Can you help me choose - I will be new in this stuff (sorry I know the question is not topic related but I think you can help me) - Semiconductors - I would like to start developing but I don´t know where and how I can start - what I have to get to start - Arm Cortex m3 developing board or raspberry pi - in my case also should I know something of electrical schemas and so and so
[1:06] * [SkG] (~sconde@unaffiliated/skg/x-897332) Quit (Quit: Saliendo)
[1:07] <Tachyon`> get a gertboard if you're planning to use a pi
[1:07] <Tachyon`> you reduce the risk of killing the 5v intolerant gpio pins
[1:08] * Jayneil (~jayneil@cpe-173-175-241-63.tx.res.rr.com) has left #raspberrypi
[1:09] <pentarex> Tachyon`: gertboard? ok I will google it to see what is it and how much is it cost also - do I require some special programming skills to write for that - I know java (not so hardcore) and little bit c++
[1:09] <[deXter]> pentarex, I think you mean "embedded systems", not semiconductors.
[1:09] <Tachyon`> there's c libraries
[1:09] <Tachyon`> for the gpio
[1:10] <Tachyon`> you can even access it via /proc/
[1:10] <Tachyon`> with shell script
[1:10] <mgottschlag> pentarex: also, do you want a microcontroller, or a full-blown linux system like the pi?
[1:10] <Tachyon`> it couldn't be easier to use really
[1:10] <pentarex> [deXter]: http://www.electronicsandyou.com/electronics-basics/semiconductors.jpg
[1:11] <mgottschlag> if you want to get into electronics, a microcontroller system (arduino, stm discovery, freescale freedom) might be more fitting
[1:11] <mgottschlag> just because it is cheaper than pi + gertboard
[1:11] <pentarex> mgottschlag: I don´t know I would like to learn - I don´t know where to start or what to buy - I am very familiar with linux and I always says RTFM to others but now I don´t know where to start - if you can give me some tutorial or step by step what to read and what to buy it will be great
[1:11] <\\Mr_C\\> is there a little screen that connects directly to the dsi port?
[1:11] <Tachyon`> not yet
[1:11] <[deXter]> pentarex, that is dumb. That's just an example of a substance. It's like pointing at a bottle of milk saying and saying it's liquid, and you'd like to know more about liquids...
[1:12] <Tachyon`> as the binary blob for DSI is STILL missing
[1:12] <nerdboy> now i just need a nice lightweight panel and an mpd client
[1:12] * esing (~esing@unaffiliated/esing) has left #raspberrypi
[1:12] * nerdboy goes off to package tint2
[1:12] <pentarex> [deXter]: you are right :)
[1:12] <mgottschlag> pentarex: you need is you need something you want to build
[1:12] <Tachyon`> bloody broadcom, come the revolution they'll be first against the wall, money grubbing <expletive deleted>
[1:12] * nxtec (~tth@cpc1-lanc6-2-0-cust124.3-3.cable.virginmedia.com) Quit (Quit: leaving)
[1:12] <mgottschlag> then you can start from there
[1:12] * Mr_P (~gerhard@chello080108255018.3.14.vie.surfer.at) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:13] <pentarex> mgottschlag: ok if I want to create simple mp3 player - what I would need
[1:13] <[deXter]> Just get raspberry pi, load raspbian and you have an MP3 player.
[1:13] <Tachyon`> you can bit bang a mobile phone display with the gpio
[1:13] <Tachyon`> someone made a tiny mame cabinet doing that
[1:13] <Tachyon`> there's video of it playing bubble bobble somewhere
[1:14] <[deXter]> If you want to *learn* how to make it from scratch however, you need to get lower than an RPi. An RPi is like cheating, it's too high level with very easy/simple solutions.
[1:14] * gyeben (~gyonkiben@dsl51B6541D.pool.t-online.hu) has left #raspberrypi
[1:15] <mgottschlag> one level lower: get an stm32discovery, build a power supply from battery, build a display module, add some flash
[1:15] <pentarex> [deXter]: the mp3 player was just an example
[1:15] <[deXter]> pentarex, You really need to define at least *some* tangible goals.. there are various levels of embedded systems
[1:15] <aaa801> Anyone know of a hardware pwm expander ?
[1:16] * nils_2_ (~nils_2@unaffiliated/nils-2/x-2480262) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:16] <[deXter]> pentarex, is this just personal curiosity, or you have a project in mind, or are you preparing for University ?
[1:16] * bertrik (~quassel@rockbox/developer/bertrik) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:16] <pentarex> [deXter]: I am a student and I work in a company that makes semiconductors and rfid chips - I dont want to bother them - I am not working in their projects right now and I would like to fit in to break through - I want to start from somewhere I ask them they said I can start with arm cortex m3 developer board
[1:17] <pentarex> asked them*
[1:18] <mgottschlag> cortex m3 = microcontroller
[1:18] <[deXter]> Yep ^
[1:18] <mgottschlag> (and, it doesn't really matter whether you choose M0, M3 or M4, they are all the same except for some few instructions)
[1:18] * sile (~jorge@202.Red-83-34-94.dynamicIP.rima-tde.net) Quit (Ping timeout: 256 seconds)
[1:18] * nils_2 (~nils_2@unaffiliated/nils-2/x-2480262) Quit (Ping timeout: 252 seconds)
[1:19] <mgottschlag> http://www.haoyuelectronics.com/ebay/FRDM-KL25Z/3.jpg <- the cortex m0 board which I use right now, trying to build a battery monitoring system
[1:20] * vjacob (~vjacob@ip2.c462.amb314.cust.comxnet.dk) Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[1:20] <[deXter]> pentarex, A microcontroller is a much more low-level device compared to the RPi.. it doesn't run a full-fledged OS, and you'd be doing most of you development in C
[1:20] <mgottschlag> (probably not the right platform for a beginner though, I think I'd recommend an atmega then)
[1:20] <mgottschlag> but I think a microcontroller board is better for you, after all the pi is just like your average computer, nothing new
[1:21] <mgottschlag> well, you have some GPIOs of course :)
[1:21] <[deXter]> Yep, an ATmega board will be nice pentarex , like an Arduino
[1:22] <mgottschlag> but really, the first thing is to pick out something you want to build, and then start from there imho
[1:22] <pentarex> some example - with what you start?
[1:23] <mgottschlag> I have no idea what my first atmega project was :D
[1:23] * hglm (~hglm@5352B6ED.cm-6-3c.dynamic.ziggo.nl) Quit (Quit: leaving)
[1:24] <[deXter]> Eh, for me, necessity is the mother of invention, and nothing motivates me like the *need*, so I pick that, but I chop up the problem into little pieces and start at the simplest piece. For eg, home automation is one of my pet projects, I'd start with something simple, like responding to sensor input.
[1:24] * nils_2_ is now known as nils_2
[1:24] <[deXter]> What would you do if a door is open? How will you record that action digitally and respond to it ?
[1:24] * zokeber (~Zokeber@unaffiliated/zokeber) Quit (Ping timeout: 256 seconds)
[1:25] <mgottschlag> other simple projects for starters would be an alarm clock, a digital thermometer, ...
[1:26] * comradekingu (~comradeki@ Quit (Quit: Leaving.)
[1:26] <mgottschlag> you could also just grab 100 LEDs and build some kind of LED display with a microcontroller
[1:27] <[deXter]> And yeah when dealing with micros, it does help to have basic electronic knowledge/skills
[1:28] <[deXter]> and also bit of digital electronics
[1:28] <[deXter]> and some basic binary math would be handy too
[1:28] <[deXter]> *too
[1:29] <Tachyon`> you certainly need to know how to use gates effectively
[1:29] <Tachyon`> well, technically you can get away with just nand but it'd get a bit samey
[1:30] * Turingi (~devon@unaffiliated/devon-hillard/x-7250961) Quit (Quit: Leaving)

[1:44] * teepee (~teepee@p5084558D.dip0.t-ipconnect.de) Quit (Ping timeout: 252 seconds)
[1:45] <pentarex> mgottschlag: and what kind of equipment do I need for this stuff

[1:45] * teepee (~teepee@p50847DAA.dip0.t-ipconnect.de) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:45] <pentarex> if I have limit to 50 euro
[1:45] <pentarex> thats my limit I dont want to invest too much in it because I dont know if I am good for it :)
[1:45] <mgottschlag> well, which one? ^^
[1:46] <pentarex> clock - digital clock
[1:47] * MilkyTunes (~ekodan@unaffiliated/ekodan) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:47] <mgottschlag> well, the center of it will be a cheap microcontroller board
[1:47] * bertrik (~quassel@rockbox/developer/bertrik) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[1:48] <mgottschlag> an arduino is 12€
[1:48] <mgottschlag> then you need to decide, how is its output supposed to look?
[1:48] <pentarex> mgottschlag: if I dont want to invest everytime I want to create something... a ok 12 euro is ok
[1:49] <pentarex> mgottschlag: something on screen - thats why I was guessing raspberry pi maybe.... the harduer on the board and to write the software on my own
[1:49] <mgottschlag> do you have a soldering iron?
[1:49] <pentarex> hardware*
[1:49] <pentarex> I will buy one
[1:50] <mgottschlag> http://image.made-in-china.com/2f0j00eMOaLjsSwHbZ/LED-7-Segment-Display.jpg <- I would probably use a microcontroller board and some of these
[1:51] <mgottschlag> of course then you also need some prototyping board (2€ per 160x100mm I think), some resistors, some solder, some pin headers to connect it to your arduino, and some simple push buttons

[1:57] * gr4yscale (~gr4yscale@c-24-21-166-2.hsd1.or.comcast.net) Quit (Quit: Computer has gone to sleep.)
[1:57] <mgottschlag> (except that the microcontroller on the left would be missing and replaced by a microcontroller board)
[1:58] <mgottschlag> that's as easy as it gets with microcontrollers, the only thing which would be more easy would be displaying the time in binary :)
[1:59] <mgottschlag> if that's too complicated, you should probably use a pi, but a pi isn't really what you initially wanted (microcontrollers)

[2:37] <hydroxygen> apt-get update or upgrade
[2:38] <Firehopper> there was another command, some kind of script that you had to download or something.
[2:38] <hydroxygen> if not as root need to add sudo
[2:38] <geordie> rpi-update
[2:39] <geordie> hydroxygen: apt-get update/upgrade update the raspbian packages installed on a system

[2:39] <hydroxygen> k
[2:40] <Firehopper> thats what it was :)
[2:40] <Firehopper> thanks..
[2:40] <Firehopper> :)
[2:40] <Firehopper> I havent touched my rpi in a while.. so I forgot the commands :)
[2:40] <geordie> yeah it's easy to do

[2:41] <dreamon_> one second. What kind of firmware? thought this is a PC.. firmware of what?
[2:41] <aca20031> is there any simple solution for letting aptitude install XBMC on raspbian? Almost everything about this (link to follow) is rediculous...http://www.raspbian.org/RaspbianXBMC
[2:42] <aca20031> whats preventing a good old apt-get install xbmc
[2:42] <Firehopper> I call my rpi setup a pi plate :) everything is mounted on a bit of plywood :)
[2:42] <Firehopper> lcd, lcd controller, backlight inverter and rpi :)
[2:42] <geordie> dreamon_: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Firmware
[2:43] <Firehopper> dreamon_, all pc's have firmware :)
[2:43] <Firehopper> its called bios :)
[2:43] <dreamon_> geordie, I know what a firmware is. but what is this firmware for? bios?
[2:43] <Firehopper> on rpi its a bit different
[2:45] <SpeedEvil> the pi is a GPU. it happens to have a CPU on the side
[2:45] <geordie> i don't know; i haven't looked at it closely
[2:45] <dreamon_> and the new "Bios" how I find out which version I have?
[2:45] <SpeedEvil> the GPU is what boots the system
[2:47] * devslash (~devslash@unaffiliated/devslash) has joined #raspberrypi
[2:48] <devslash> i had a usb hard drive connected to my pi 24/7 with an entry in /etc/fstab to auto mount it. i don't want to use this usb hard drive anymore so i commented out the line in stab and when i rebooted it hangs
[2:48] <devslash> is there anything else that i need to do ?

[2:53] <ambro718> I mean without kernel
[2:53] <JakeSays> ambro718: you need some sort of os to make it useful
[2:53] <aaa801> ambro718, try the whole Bare Metal section of the forum
[2:53] <aaa801> http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewforum.php?f=72
[2:53] <ambro718> of course I don't, I just need to know enough to make the bits I need

[4:03] <timmmaaaayyy> battery/solar i guess is the better way.
[4:03] <steve_rox> i tryed to boot rpi directly off solar
[4:04] <steve_rox> i went into a boot loop
[4:04] <steve_rox> since there was not enough power
[4:04] <timmmaaaayyy> how big is your panel?
[4:04] <timmmaaaayyy> i'm worried that i'd need quite a large panel to do this
[4:04] <steve_rox> erm i dont know the measurements
[4:04] <steve_rox> but its some 12v thing
[4:04] <hydroxygen> timmmaaaayyy, i use solar for my home, if used with a pi i would store in gel battery and use a regulator 7805 5v for 1 amp
[4:04] <timmmaaaayyy> so i'm thinking i might have to go with just a fat battery pack and only get <1day
[4:05] <steve_rox> fat battery?
[4:07] <steve_rox> going to try recondition some lead acid batterys when i can get the distilled water
[4:07] <steve_rox> i only know batterys to be fat when their cells warp and go malformed
[4:08] <JakeSays> well shit
[4:09] <steve_rox> room def needs a language filter :-P
[4:09] <timmmaaaayyy> just a huge battery pack. 300mah+

[4:09] <timmmaaaayyy> hydroxygen: you lost me.....i clearly need to learn alot more about solar. haha
[4:09] <steve_rox> thats like 3 Ah i think
[4:10] <hydroxygen> an 18ah would give u about 40hrs of use
[4:10] <timmmaaaayyy> 18ah.....is that battery size?
[4:10] <hydroxygen> solar charge a 18ah 12v gel and use a 7805 5volt regulator ..its good for 1amp
[4:11] <ozzzy> at 1A it would need a decent heatsink
[4:11] <steve_rox> btw i noticed rpi cam gets a bit funky when supplyed with a weak psu
[4:11] <steve_rox> lines appear and flickering
[4:11] <timmmaaaayyy> sounds pretty awesome. i might have to order this stuff up and start getting some experience with it
[4:11] <hydroxygen> 18ah is 3x6x10" +/-
[4:12] <JakeSays> hmm. can the pi boot from a usb stick?
[4:12] <hydroxygen> yes ozzzy heatsink required for the 7805
[4:12] <timmmaaaayyy> yes.....btu you still need an sd card
[4:12] <JakeSays> timmmaaaayyy: for what?
[4:12] <ozzzy> build a supply around an LM2576... at 1A doesn't need a sink
[4:12] <steve_rox> firmware
[4:13] <timmmaaaayyy> thats just how it works. it won't boot without an sd card. you'd have to find a tutorial that would explain it, beucse i can't. i just know you need the sd
[4:13] <steve_rox> least its very hard if not impossible to brick a rpi
[4:13] <JakeSays> timmmaaaayyy: well, if an sd card is required then you can't boot from anything but an sd card
[4:14] <steve_rox> the device allways looks for a sd on power up no matter what

[5:02] <zerooneone> i did that already

[5:03] <zerooneone> for example, i rebooted it yesterday and got the error at 11:30am and it continued with the same erroros and no networking or usb until i pulled the plug
[5:04] <zerooneone> 11:30a, this morning
[5:04] <nerdboy> [Saint]: i'm always rebuilding my openembedded image for testing new stuff, so i reflash cards several times a day...

[5:06] <[Saint]> If you want to re-image often, great. However, understanding the problem and actually fixing it is a LOT better than shrugging and wiping everything because you can't/don't want to understand the issue.
[5:06] <JakeSays> ok so how to i figure out the device id of my sd reader?
[5:06] <[Saint]> This is an educational device after all.

[5:12] <aaa801> nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
[5:12] <[Saint]> zerooneone: you're free to do that, of course, but the fact you said you have done so and the issue continued suggests it'll be a waste of time, or you're restoring a setup to that image which is causing the issue.

[6:34] <morgazmo> Can anyone tell me if it's feasible to have a pi connected to my house wi-fi, then put it in the car, drive away - and still connect to the pi through an android/iphone remote app?
[6:35] <[Saint]> ...via what network? Assuming you don't have multiple kilometers or wireless range.
[6:36] <[Saint]> Drive away from the AP, and your connection will go down...this is wifi101.
[6:37] <devslash> i had a usb hard drive connected to my pi 24/7 with an entry in /etc/fstab to auto mount it. i don't want to use this usb hard drive anymore so i commented out the line in stab and when i rebooted it hangs. am i forgetting something ? is there something else i need to do if i plug the usb drive back in it boots fine
[6:37] <morgazmo> Can the wifi on the phone communicate direct to the pi without a network? adhoc or the like..
[6:37] <[Saint]> devslash: there's no need to repeat yourself.
[6:38] <[Saint]> morgazmo: Oh, yes. Sure. You can setup an AP from the Pi. Sure.
[6:38] <[Saint]> The way you worded it initially seemed a little odd. Yes. You can do that, sure.
[6:39] <morgazmo> any ideas if I can make it try to connect to the home network - then revert to the PI AP if there is no connection?
[6:39] <[Saint]> morgazmo: assuming you allow it to connect to the network(s) automatically, that should "just work", yes.

[6:54] <morgazmo> Saint - It all seems straightforward. The only complication for me is I want to switch between home / car networks on the fly preferably without a monitor.
[6:54] <morgazmo> At home I want my Pi to connect to the wifi automatically (home SSID), but when I'm out of range - it needs to change to its own AP settings. Can profiles do this, or a script.. maybe some voodoo?

[7:57] <[Saint]> Foolish mortal!

[7:58] <Triffid_Hunter> sgerbino: howcome you're using wiringPi calls for a usb serial port? suggest using standard file I/O calls instead
[7:59] <sgerbino> i dunno it looked like easy-mode, and i had a similar example that did work with it
[8:00] <Triffid_Hunter> sgerbino: also suggest you use a newline.. unless you set the flush options properly, printf may not write anything until you put a newline. strace will help with that
[8:01] <sgerbino> hmm ok, i did try serialPutchar to no avail
[8:02] <Triffid_Hunter> sgerbino: well strace will show you all the syscalls your program is making. that'll at least let you know if it's doing proper writes and reads
[8:03] <sgerbino> ok will try that
[8:03] <sgerbino> thanks
[8:03] <sgerbino> ill try re-writing with linux i/o funcs too
[8:06] <Triffid_Hunter> sgerbino: one thing I've learnt from programming is don't trust libraries to do the right thing, all too frequently they simply don't and leave you head-desking for days

[9:00] <eephyne> but with one hundred dwarf in the fortress

[9:40] <super3> just wanted to see if anyone had seen a screen look like that, i should get access to a multimeter tomorrow though
[9:40] <gordonDrogon> the screen looks like that if you crank up the contrast pot before you initialise the display.
[9:41] <gordonDrogon> odd to see how it can be wrong if the buttons & backlight works though - that accounts for the mcp23017 working,etc.

[9:47] <super3> does it connect to the 16x2 board somehow?
[9:47] <super3> there is a little chip in the plastic for the molding
[9:47] <super3> im not sure if its all the way connected to the board, i think it is, but im not sure
[9:51] <gordonDrogon> it should be, but I've not checked the schematic that close. The board only needs power and the 2 I2C pins.
[9:51] <gordonDrogon> *shouldn't
[9:52] <super3> where are the two ic pins?
[9:53] <Syliss> hmm, radio shack has some boards on sale for like $10
[9:53] <Syliss> may have to look for a proto board
[9:53] <gordonDrogon> if you put the Pi next to you, with composite facing you/hdmi facing away, then the top right of the 26-pin gpio connector is +3.3 and the to immediately to the left of that pin are the I2C pins.

[13:00] <BlueMint> ShiftPlusOne, it was more to tap into my audio before it went into the amp, so I could do fancy stuff with my mp3 plyer or computer
[13:00] <ShiftPlusOne> BlueMint, what kind of fancy stuff?
[13:01] <BlueMint> ShiftPlusOne, (EPILEPSY WARNING) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IIz7CIov84o making this go in time with sound
[13:02] <Tachyon`> oh okay, you're probably safe then, lol
[13:02] <ShiftPlusOne> you can still do that. Process it and output whatever you need to over GPIO while playing the audio.
[13:04] <ShiftPlusOne> For example, FFT the audio and use that data to strobe the light in some interesting way.
[13:05] <ShiftPlusOne> And you've got the same keyboard as me D=
[13:05] <BlueMint> Hmmm, so you're saying put the audio through to a GPIO input pin? (ATM machine language)
[13:05] <BlueMint> ShiftPlusOne, razer black widow?
[13:06] <ShiftPlusOne> No, I am saying feed the audio through the network and play it over the pi, or play it over the other computer as you control the light with the pi.
[13:06] <ShiftPlusOne> and yes, that keyboard.
[13:07] <BlueMint> Hmm, yes I think that is an awesome option
[13:07] <BlueMint> Also, despite what some people may say, it is a bloody awesome keyboard
[13:07] <ShiftPlusOne> I like it. A bit loud, but I have no problems with it.
[13:08] <BlueMint> Good volume during the day, very loud during the night
[13:09] <ShiftPlusOne> How is that light controlled?
[13:09] <BlueMint> My computer gives serial commands to an arduino which has built in functions

[13:25] <pasky> Hi! Most of the information I was able to Google out is from last June or something, so I was wondering - are there any new hacks for connecting Raspberry Pi as USB device to another USB host? Either for model B or model A. It doesn't necessarily need to use just the SOC, but it could be a design e.g. using (less preferrably) FTDI chip on the serial console or (more preferrably) a USB device connected to RPi that can act as host-to-host bridge ...
[13:25] <pasky> ... (and supply an arbitrary device ID to the other host)
[13:27] * hglm (~hglm@5352B6ED.cm-6-3c.dynamic.ziggo.nl) has joined #raspberrypi
[13:28] <SpeedEvil> b - absolutely impossible.
[13:29] <KanjiMonster> ShiftPlusOne: found the culprit, was an OpenWrt patch for reducing the kernel size that removed a bit too much
[13:29] <SpeedEvil> a - I'm unsure, but don't believe anyone has managed it
[13:30] <ShiftPlusOne> KanjiMonster, ah so the mainline kernel actually boots into a usable environment without any extras?
[13:30] <KanjiMonster> ShiftPlusOne: 3.9.2 does, 3.10-rc1 seems to be broken (funny panics on boot)
[13:31] <ShiftPlusOne> KanjiMonster, Didn't know that, thanks.
[13:32] <KanjiMonster> ShiftPlusOne: will probably still require a lot of handywork, so nothing more than a "okay, boots to command line on serial" - at least the memory reservation for the GPU is not properly passed to the kernel through device tree

[17:16] <Demp> my pi stopped working. the PWR led is the only one on. I'm trying to follow this http://elinux.org/R-Pi_Troubleshooting and it says I should be able to locate bootcode.bin and fixup.dat on the sd card, but I can't seem to find them. are they suppose to be in the boot partition?
[17:17] <KanjiMonster> they are supposed to be in the vfat partion
[17:19] <Demp> any particular directory?
[17:19] <KanjiMonster> no, directly in the root - bootcode.bin, fixup.dat, start.elf
[17:20] <Demp> alright, so they don't exist. any way to fix that?
[17:21] <KanjiMonster> is the kernel at least there? (kernel.img)
[17:21] <Demp> (pi was working a few hours ago, stopped working after a power outage)
[17:22] <Demp> nope. all I have there is cmdline.txt, config.txt, issue.txt, start.elf, start_cd.elf and start_x.elf

[17:26] <KanjiMonster> yes

[17:56] <bigx> i know it's not protected but there's no overvoltage in my system, and it was a quick test, the final stuff will be based on 2N2222s
[17:57] <KanjiMonster> bigx: the problem is RS232 uses -12/+12V for 0/1, the raspi uses +3.3V/0V
[17:57] <bigx> the MINITEL uses 0/+5v
[17:57] <KanjiMonster> even then it's a huge difference
[17:57] <KanjiMonster> ah
[17:57] <KanjiMonster> 5V
[17:57] <KanjiMonster> still more than the raspi
[17:58] <bigx> that's why i put a tension divider on the rx of the pi
[17:58] <bigx> to lower to 3v
[17:58] <KanjiMonster> also note that the raspi uses active low
[17:58] <bigx> on the tx, there's no need since it's TTL, 3.3v is above 2.4v
[17:58] <bigx> active low?
[17:59] <KanjiMonster> 3.3V = 0, 0V = 1

[20:16] <Alezaru> i would make subdomain for manage my grow
[20:16] <Alezaru> with node
[20:16] <Alezaru> so i will probably contribute to your project

[20:55] <sgerbino> does one have to remove serial port login when using USB serial communication on the pi?
[20:55] <Triffid_Hunter> no
[20:55] <Triffid_Hunter> you need to remove the serial port login if you want to use the rpi's built-in uart for something
[20:56] <Triffid_Hunter> otherwise both the login process and your process both try to read from the port, and each gets ~half the data
[20:57] <sgerbino> ok thats what i thought.. just checkin

[20:58] <sgerbino> ok :|
[20:58] <pksato> In this case, not need to disable serial console. Serial console use SoC internal UART.
[20:58] <sgerbino> dead ends everywhere! :p
[20:58] <JakeSays> i upgraded my sd cards from class 4 to class 10 - much faster
[20:59] <Triffid_Hunter> sgerbino: strace have anything interesting?
[20:59] <sgerbino> it shows the call the write and then reads forever

[21:27] <gordonDrogon> hi
[21:28] <sgerbino> wait a second i thought Serial.println adds the newline character on arduino .. mm
[21:28] <gordonDrogon> I'm sure the Python libraries have ways to do this though, but I've really not used them - ever.
[21:28] <gordonDrogon> back later though - gonig to veg. in-front of the box for a while!

[21:52] <KameSense> ShiftPlusOne: yes
[21:52] <ShiftPlusOne> KameSense, pastebin your config.txt I think you need to remove the lines which tell the firmware which start.elf file to load
