[3:24] <[Saint]> the awesome thing about google api for youtube is that there's none of this "not available in your locale", "sign in to confirm your age", or waiting for unskippable ads to finish just to view the content.

[4:29] <Triffid_Hunter> [Saint]: if you want to skip all of youtube's noise, http://triffid-hunter.no-ip.info/video_download
[4:30] <[Saint]> Triffid_Hunter: I have a chrome extension I built that automagically does all the conversion for me.
[4:30] <[Saint]> I just messed it up slightly and it couldn't deal with a leading "-"
[4:31] <[Saint]> I care not for downloading said videos. Youtube hosts them so I don't have to :)
[4:31] * yehnan (~yehnan@61-228-3-62.dynamic.hinet.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[4:32] <Triffid_Hunter> [Saint]: *shrug* well you have to download them to watch them.. whether or not you store them is another matter. easy to modify the script to wget ... -O - | mplayer - ;)
[4:32] <Triffid_Hunter> or even use a named pipe
[4:32] <[Saint]> I stream *everything* these days. Such are the joys of disposable internet.
[4:33] <[Saint]> I understand the theory behind downloading, but it is simply more practical for me to stream on demand.
[4:34] <Triffid_Hunter> heh I use my video folder like a set of youtube bookmarks because my script saves the hash into the filename
[4:34] <Triffid_Hunter> also I frequently rewatch things and here in australia we have download quotas :/
[4:35] <[Saint]> If I *didn't* have fast, un-capped, "true unlimited" internet...I would definitely do so, and I used to, but I pay for the connection I have so I don't need to anymore.
[4:35] <[Saint]> The space the media takes up isn't worth the trivial amount of time it takes to rebuffer.
[4:35] <Triffid_Hunter> [Saint]: heh there's no true unlimited here last time I checked
[4:36] <[Saint]> There's *one* here. :)
[4:36] <Triffid_Hunter> lots of companies have been sued for false advertising over "unlimited" though
[4:36] * Armand (~martin@cpc8-slou2-2-0-cust104.haye.cable.virginmedia.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[4:36] <[Saint]> Indeed. Here too. There's only a single "unlimited" plan. I've had it for a few years, grandfathered now.
[4:36] <[Saint]> AFAIK they're not taking any more customers on this plan.
[4:37] <Triffid_Hunter> heh don't let go of it then
[4:37] <[Saint]> No sir ;)
[4:38] <yehnan> Hi, which software component is responsible for setting desktop background image? In Raspbian(LXDE), is it the window manager(Openbox)?
[4:38] * Thra11 (~Thra11@ Quit (Ping timeout: 264 seconds)
[4:40] <Triffid_Hunter> yehnan: looking.. I invoke xsetbg from ~/.config/autostart/ on my laptop, not sure where it's called from on the rpi
[4:42] <yehnan> Triffid_Hunter: well...I used the wrong wording. Q: who is responsible for displaying the desktop bg image?
[4:43] <[Saint]> fwiw, I understood the wording.
[4:43] <[Saint]> But, I can see how Triffid_Hunter went the other way with it.
[4:44] <[Saint]> yehnan: I believe it is the job of the DE to set such things, not the window manager.
[4:45] <yehnan> [Saint]: and the name? LXDE?
[4:45] <[Saint]> yehnan: well, that depends entirely on what DE you're using.
[4:45] <[Saint]> If you never changed it, and you're using raspbian, it will be LXDE, yes.
[4:45] <yehnan> [Saint]: I use Raspbian and LXDE.
[4:46] <yehnan> [Saint]: I thought LXDE(desktop environment) is a collection of software. In wiki http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LXDE , it says that LXDE consists of several components.
[4:47] <yehnan> [Saint]: Then, is there a software component also called LXDE? I don't see it.
[4:47] * [Saint] is unsure of what yehnan is asking
[4:48] <yehnan> [Saint]: LXPanel is responsible for the bottom task panel. Quite understandable. Openbox(window manager) is for manaing windows.
[4:48] <yehnan> [Saint]: who is for desktop bg image and the program shortcuts on desktop?
[4:48] * rideh (~rideh@unaffiliated/rideh) Quit (Quit: rideh)
[4:49] <[Saint]> lxappearance is probably (read _probably_) responsible for the desktop and icons, etc.
[4:50] <[Saint]> lxshortcut looks like it handles the desktop icons.
[4:50] <[Saint]> see for yourself: http://packages.debian.org/wheezy/lxde
[4:51] <yehnan> [Saint]: hmm...thanks. I see.
[4:51] <[Saint]> Hmmmm, yes. lxappearence handles themeing, lxshortcut handles desktop shortcuts.
[4:52] <[Saint]> totally unsurprising naming scheme there :)
[4:54] * hyperair (hyperair@ubuntu/member/hyperair) Quit (Ping timeout: 256 seconds)
[4:55] * ReggieUK (ReggieUK@ Quit ()
[4:55] * hyperair (hyperair@ubuntu/member/hyperair) has joined #raspberrypi
[4:57] <pksato> yehnan: any software capable to 'write' to root windows can be used to set desktop backgound, like xsetroot, xsetbg, and most image viewers. On start of lxde, lxsession set bg.
[4:59] * Aivaras (~Aivaras@cpc6-leic16-2-0-cust830.8-1.cable.virginmedia.com) Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[4:59] <[Saint]> Oh? lxsession handles it? My mistake. I assumed the theme management system would do so.

[5:15] <[Saint]> gparted can do it trivially.
[5:15] <KiltedPi> devslash- you are talking about expanding a partition
[5:16] <devslash> yea
[5:16] <KiltedPi> Is it on linux or windows
[5:16] <devslash> well mac
[5:16] <KiltedPi> Computer Management is what you need in Windows

[5:16] <KiltedPi> Gparted or something similiar in linux
[5:17] <KiltedPi> You've got the Raspbian OS installed- on your RaspberryPi?
[5:17] <KiltedPi> But you want the Mac OS on it?
[5:17] <devslash> no
[5:18] <KiltedPi> I don't know anything about mac's, I'm in I.T.
[5:18] <devslash> i have arch linux on my pi but if i need to expand it on something other than the pi, it'd be a mac
[5:18] <devslash> same as linux mostly
[5:19] <KiltedPi> Yeah, I don't know about Mac's at all.
[5:19] <KiltedPi> I think I used them in school when I was a kid.
[5:20] <KiltedPi> Well I don't know what you would use, but it will be 'partition management' you'll want to google or something
[5:20] <KiltedPi> Here you go: http://www.macintosh-software.net/tools/mac-partition-manager.php
[5:21] <KiltedPi> Disclaimer- I have no idea whether it will work
[5:21] <KiltedPi> Apple mac's deliberately make their software as incompatible with linux and windows as they can, so you have to buy their proprietary stuff tho.
[5:22] <KiltedPi> I would imagine they couldn't 'take the micky' out of something as simple as managing partitions tho
[5:23] <hydroxygen> devslash, I wamt to do a imular thing but with openELEC in a pi, so when u find out how , let me know too
[5:24] <devslash> on a mac as well ?

[5:24] <hydroxygen> no.i make sd with windows ..macbuntu might do what u want
[5:24] <pksato> is very simple to resize ext3/ext4 partition, not need noting special.
[5:24] <devslash> i found this: http://ivanx.com/raspberrypi/
[5:25] <KiltedPi> what pksato said
[5:25] <KiltedPi> Its not a pi related thing
[5:25] <pksato> can use some tools to do it easy. but, can do manualy.
[5:25] <KiltedPi> Its a hard drive thing.
[5:25] <KiltedPi> Your mac is just a PC. I hate to be the one to tell you, but you bought a PC but paid %2000 more for its operating system
[5:25] <KiltedPi> :(
[5:26] <KiltedPi> I'm assuming you weren't given the mac, so thats not entirely fair

[5:30] <KiltedPi> nobody here uses a mac- but download that bad boy
[5:30] <KiltedPi> And you need an 'Extended partition'
[5:30] <KiltedPi> Make it bigger basically.
[5:30] <KiltedPi> You need some software to do what you're asking.
[5:31] <KiltedPi> Gparted in linux, Computer Management does it for windows- But for a mac, try this: http://www.macintosh-software.net/tools/mac-partition-manager.php
[5:31] <KiltedPi> Its not pi-related you see?
[5:31] <KiltedPi> Its a hardware thing.
[5:31] <KiltedPi> You have a 'hard drive' in your computer, thats where the (physical) memory is
[5:31] * KiltedPi is sorry if he sounds patronising
[5:32] <KiltedPi> You need to access the HD through that software
[5:32] <KiltedPi> Expand the partition.
[5:32] <KiltedPi> So open it up, and it will have your drives, like C:/
[5:33] <KiltedPi> C:/ is usually your main partition
[5:33] <KiltedPi> When you plug your wee raspberry in, it will appear to, check out which letter it has as designation
[5:34] * owen_ (~owen@ has joined #raspberrypi
[5:38] <hydroxygen> can windows do that with computer management / dick management ?
[5:38] <devslash> I've got an idea what to do

[5:39] <KiltedPi> crikey!
[5:39] <KiltedPi> :)
[5:39] <hydroxygen> my lights are 3watt leds..and keyboard is small
[5:39] <devslash> when i first installed arch linux on an 8gb card, i expanded it directly in arch on my pi while it was booted up
[5:39] <KiltedPi> You'll get a warning, they are total nazi's about swearing here. (Trust me I'm Scottish)
[5:39] <KiltedPi> It's fair enough rly. Raspberry is for kids
[5:40] <hydroxygen> i used to clone small drives into large drives..so imagine would work the same with the prgm i used then
[5:40] * slug (~Nuno@209-6-193-216.c3-0.smr-ubr2.sbo-smr.ma.cable.rcn.com) Quit (Quit: Leaving.)
[5:40] <KiltedPi> it will take a very long time with 512 mb on the pi
[5:40] <KiltedPi> Do it with a second computer. Or Max
[5:41] <KiltedPi> Or mac*
[5:41] <KiltedPi> Take you two secs externaly
[5:41] <KiltedPi> Cloning a drive is something diff tho
[5:42] <KiltedPi> You are just wanting to extend the partition
[5:43] * dj_pi (~dj@c-107-5-25-243.hsd1.mi.comcast.net) Quit (Ping timeout: 264 seconds)
[5:43] <KiltedPi> so all that 'un-allocated' space is getting used
[5:43] <hydroxygen> disk copy 2.3 is what i used to clone before..making a clone of a sd with all u have into a larger one would be the ticket..and not lose anything
[5:44] <KiltedPi> You want to back up now?
[5:44] <KiltedPi> I don't follow
[5:44] <KiltedPi> You can back up a whole SD card, sure!
[5:44] <[Saint]> From earlier...if the pi boots...then why on earth resize the partition on another system?
[5:44] <[Saint]> gparted can do this trivially, as I stated.
[5:45] <hydroxygen> depends on when it happens.. if its full of additions and lets say 'music files' and upgrades..why loose everything..so cloning it would be better then losing everything and starting over.
[5:45] <KiltedPi> does it take long from inside the pi, [Saint]?
[5:45] <[Saint]> No.
[5:45] <KiltedPi> there you go then, chaps
[5:45] <KiltedPi> Boot up your pi
[5:45] <[Saint]> A matter of seconds.
[5:45] <KiltedPi> Run 'Gparted'
[5:45] <KiltedPi> Have a wee look at your partitions there

[5:46] <KiltedPi> You'll have your main one-
[5:46] <KiltedPi> And you will want to extend it out
[5:46] <KiltedPi> use up all your un-allocated space
[5:46] <KiltedPi> Backing up is something different

[5:49] <KiltedPi> So I thought lets not get into BASH
[5:49] <[Saint]> "sudo resize2fs /dev/mmcblk0p<insert_partition_number_here>" will do exactly what you want.
[5:49] <KiltedPi> what is it
[5:49] <KiltedPi> aye
[5:50] <[Saint]> On arch, this is almost certainly mmcblk0p2
[5:50] <KiltedPi> aye, fire up terminal if you are really brave chaps
[5:50] <KiltedPi> get stuck in.
[5:50] <KiltedPi> You might break somehting. but thats the point i suppose
[5:50] <KiltedPi> not physically break
[5:50] <[Saint]> From what I remember of the source thereof, all raspi-config does is make a call to resize2fs
[5:51] <KiltedPi> But you might have to re-flash
[5:51] <hydroxygen> resize2fs will be used.. thanks.ill ask more when the 32gb arrives
[5:52] <KiltedPi> good man!

[5:54] <[Saint]> No one needs more than 640K RAM!
[5:54] <[Saint]> :P
[5:55] <hydroxygen> we charged $150 for each 16k
[5:55] <hydroxygen> ^^ bill gates ..640k lol
[5:55] * [Saint] recallshis friends being jealous of his HUGE 32MB HDD
[5:56] <hydroxygen> how about ibm's 10mb ..and then upgraded to 20mb ..was a huge investment
[5:56] <[Saint]> WHen the platter spun up it behaved like a gyroscope. You could feel it fighting against any attempts to tilt it sideways :)
[5:56] <[Saint]> The platter weighed a ton.
[5:56] <hydroxygen> like a 10: circular saw
[5:58] * [Saint] wonders if there are any plans to release a raspbian image based on the 'next' branch.
[5:58] <[Saint]> Or, alternatively, when the next release will be made.
[5:58] <hydroxygen> my last update/upgrade is most stable ..
[5:59] <[Saint]> Right, but, there's *quite* a jump between the master and next branches wrt: kernel
[5:59] * hydroxygen feels like a beta tester
[6:00] <[Saint]> and apt-get up{date|grade} won't pull in anything from the 'next' branch.
[6:01] <[Saint]> master is 3.6 and next is 3.8
[6:01] <[Saint]> quite a difference, and a lot of additional goodies.
[6:01] <[Saint]> The main one being F2FS support.
[6:01] <hydroxygen> im scared to update anymore..this is working correctly now
[6:02] <[Saint]> Using F2FS instead of EXT* makes a massive improvement on the pi.
[6:02] <[Saint]> EXT* is fast, sure, but F2FS is leaps and bounds ahead.
[6:04] <[Saint]> see: http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=article&item=linux_f2fs_benchmarks&num=2
[6:05] <[Saint]> In most instances, F2FS is either on par with, or vastly ahead of, the competition.
[6:06] <[Saint]> It has some slightly disappointing results with compilation, but, it is still a very young filesystem.

[6:39] <[Saint]> You can pull 3.8.13 directly from https://github.com/raspberrypi/firmware/tree/next
[6:41] <[Saint]> pretty self explanatory, just replace the tree in the repo with the tree on the device for everything except 'documentation' and 'README'
[6:42] <\\Mr_C\\> the vfat partition on the linux /boot?
[6:42] <\\Mr_C\\> or both?

[6:43] <\\Mr_C\\> ok
[6:43] <\\Mr_C\\> thank you
[6:43] <[Saint]> boot goes in /boot, everything else goes in /
[6:43] <vincent_c> [Saint]: easier way to run 3.8.13 is to just run sudo BRANCH=next rpi-update
[6:44] <vincent_c> (rather than manually cloning the repo and figuring out where everything goes)
[6:44] <[Saint]> depends on how you define easier, I guess.
[6:44] <[Saint]> wget and cp with some sed magic is plenty easy for me.
[6:45] <vincent_c> perhaps, but for those who aren't entirely sure of what they're doing, using rpi-update is safer

[6:52] <[Saint]> perhaps I'll get bored enough to do this.
[6:52] <\\Mr_C\\> should i install it?
[6:53] <[Saint]> Its your pi...do what you will. :)

[6:57] <\\Mr_C\\> uhh for the initial install you do
[6:57] <\\Mr_C\\> after its done you can just use ssh or some crap
[6:58] <lolbat> what should I format it too?
[6:58] <[Saint]> FAT32, it's probably already formatted as such.
[6:59] <lolbat> All of it?
[6:59] <lolbat> I am slighly drunk and just borrowed this from a friend, so I am sorry if I am slow
[6:59] <[Saint]> Yes. The installer will setup the partions itself.

[7:01] <lolbat> [Saint]: I dont have a usb keyboard, am I SOL?
[7:02] <[Saint]> lolbat: That's one way to put it, yes.
[7:02] <lolbat> I cant do the install with just a mouse?
[7:02] <[Saint]> Unless you have a PS2->USB adapter, you may as well give up now.
[7:03] <[Saint]> You cannot install either the full raspbian image or complete the raspbian installer without a keyboard, no.
[7:03] <lolbat> not even with a chroot?
[7:04] <yehnan> lolbat: do you have a LAN/DHCP environment? I mean, after first time booting raspibarrypi+raspbian, it can automatically get an private ip address.
[7:05] <[Saint]> yehnan: you're forgetting that you need a keyboard to boot the thing.
[7:05] <lolbat> All my devices get a private IPv4 and IPv6
[7:05] <[Saint]> raspi-config runs on first boot.
[7:05] <yehnan> [Saint]: no. I can boot raspbian without a keyboard.
[7:05] <[Saint]> Sure you can. *after* the initial install.
[7:05] <yehnan> [Saint]: yes, but after ssh in, you can execute raspi-config remotely.
[7:06] <yehnan> [Saint]: no. I can ssh in at the initial boot.
[7:06] <lolbat> I cant even get rasberrian pi to show anything on the hdmi
[7:06] <yehnan> [Saint]: if i know the private ip address of the rpi .
[7:07] <[Saint]> with the supplied raspbian image, yes, but this guy wants to use the installer.
[7:07] <yehnan> lolbat: well, what port does your monitor have? DVI? D-Sub?
[7:07] <[Saint]> If he wnats to use the installer, he WILL need a keyboard.
[7:07] <yehnan> [Saint]: oh, sorry about. My bad.
[7:07] <lolbat> HDMI1/DVI
[7:07] <yehnan> lolbat: you use HDMI-DVI converter?
[7:08] <lolbat> no
[7:08] <lolbat> plain hdmi
[7:08] <yehnan> lolbat: maybe you can edit config.txt, enable hdmi_force_hotplug=1
[7:08] <[Saint]> You could use qemu to complete the installation and then transfer the image to the pi, I guess.
[7:09] <lolbat> I dont have any config.txt
[7:09] <[Saint]> Probabaly easier to just wait until you can dig up a keyboard, though.

[7:10] <[Saint]> \\Mr_C\\: it seems that raspbian has been capable of updating the firmware via apt-get up{date|grade} for a grand total of 3 days :)
[7:11] <[Saint]> So, forgive me for not being aware of this, please. If you'd be so kind.
[7:11] <[Saint]> It seems the relevant change is the addition of the package "raspberrypi-bootloader"
[7:11] <[Saint]> Source: raspberrypi-firmware
[7:11] <[Saint]> Version: 1.20130517-1
[7:11] <[Saint]> Description: EGL/GLES/OpenVG/etc. libraries for the Raspberry Pi's VideoCore IV
[7:11] <[Saint]> This package contains implementations of EGL, OpenGL ES, OpenVG, OpenWF
[7:11] <[Saint]> Composition, and others for the Raspberry Pi's VideoCore IV multimedia
[7:11] <[Saint]> processor.
[7:12] <[Saint]> bah! silly wrong pastebuffer.
[7:13] <[Saint]> Package: raspberrypi-bootloader
[7:13] <[Saint]> Source: raspberrypi-firmware
[7:13] <[Saint]> Version: 1.20130517-1
[7:13] <[Saint]> Description: Raspberry Pi bootloader
[7:13] <[Saint]> This package contains the Raspberry Pi bootloader (plus, temporarily, a
[7:13] <[Saint]> kernel).
[7:14] <vincent_c> [Saint]: afaik raspberrypi-firmware has always been installed as a package, it just hasn't been updated for 3 months or so (since february)
[7:14] * DaQatz (~DB@ Quit (Ping timeout: 245 seconds)
[7:14] <[Saint]> So, yes, it seems that apt-get up{date|grade} *is* capable of updating the kernel and firmware now.
[7:14] <vincent_c> I guess the foundation only makes updates to those core packages available when something big happens, like those new camera thingies
[7:15] <vincent_c> no, apt-get up{date|grade} was always capable of updating kernel+firmware
[7:15] <vincent_c> but only if there were updated packages available in the repos
[7:16] * timmmaaaayyy (~timmmaaaa@cpe-68-175-79-100.nyc.res.rr.com) Quit (Ping timeout: 256 seconds)
[7:16] <[Saint]> 'twould be very nice if raspi-config allowed you to select the branch to pull from.
[7:16] <\\Mr_C\\> Linux x 3.8.13+ #454 PREEMPT Fri May 17 15:58:19 BST 2013 armv6l
[7:17] <[Saint]> I suppose there's no need for that now rpi-update is in the repo, but, I don't really see any reason for them to be two seperate tools.
[7:17] <[Saint]> They should (IMO) be merged as one.
[7:18] <[Saint]> So, I'm guessing nothing blew up then, \\Mr_C\\ :)
[7:18] <vincent_c> wait, rpi-update is now in the repos?
[7:18] <vincent_c> hmm...so it is
[7:18] <\\Mr_C\\> nope
[7:18] <\\Mr_C\\> works fine
[7:18] * Mikelevel (~MoVeWoRk@unaffiliated/mikelevel) has joined #raspberrypi
[7:18] <vincent_c> gonna go apt-get it now
[7:18] <[Saint]> vincent_c: it kinda surprised me too.
[7:19] <[Saint]> \\Mr_C\\: I'm assuming you went the "apt-get install rpi-update && sudoi BRANCH=next rpi-update" route?
[7:19] <[Saint]> *sudo
[7:20] * Cy-Gor (~Brian@cpe-70-124-70-140.austin.res.rr.com) Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[7:20] <\\Mr_C\\> sorta
[7:20] <lolbat> How do I instal something bootable on this?
[7:20] <\\Mr_C\\> apt-get install rpi-update
[7:20] <\\Mr_C\\> then
[7:20] <\\Mr_C\\> BRANCH=next rpi-update
[7:20] <\\Mr_C\\> im already logged in as root
[7:20] <vincent_c> lolbat: just use the regular raspbian image from the foundation's website?
[7:21] <\\Mr_C\\> i dont like that image , it has that gui desktop in it
[7:21] <\\Mr_C\\> i prefer shell console
[7:21] <vincent_c> you can strip out what you want afterwards
[7:21] <[Saint]> \\Mr_C\\: easy to remove.
[7:21] <vincent_c> all I need is ssh
[7:21] <\\Mr_C\\> i like the installer

[7:25] <vincent_c> well, I imagine that you'd already have coreutils installed already, no?
[7:25] <vincent_c> err, if you're not using Linux, there's plenty of GUI tools for other platforms that makes this process easy
[7:25] <[Saint]> vincent_c: I'm gonna go ahead and assume Windows host here.
[7:25] <[Saint]> ...just guessing.
[7:25] <lolbat> stiill nothing
[7:26] <vincent_c> yeah, safer to assume that, on second thought :P

[7:26] * techsurvivor (~kvirc@ has joined #raspberrypi
[7:26] <[Saint]> lolbat: if so, then, you have dd.
[7:28] <lolbat> I did dd teh second image on the download page (it mentioned somethign about oracle jvm, and my application is using java)
[7:28] <yehnan> reply to self: after converting the video file to mkv format, it's fine. So the problem is the media player I use.
[7:28] <[Saint]> "sudo dd bs=1M if=/path/to/extracted/image.img of=/path/to/sdcard"
[7:28] <lolbat> did that allready
[7:28] <lolbat> still nothing on my television screen
[7:28] <[Saint]> You're not trying to write the .zip to disk, are you?
[7:28] <[Saint]> I mean, you extracted it...yes?
[7:28] <lolbat> no
[7:29] <lolbat> yes
[7:29] <lolbat> fuck
[7:29] <lolbat> Sorry
[7:29] <lolbat> I wrote it to sda
[7:29] <lolbat> -.-"
[7:29] <ParkerR> ...
[7:29] <[Saint]> Ohhhh....bugger.
[7:29] <ParkerR> inb4 lost main OS install
[7:29] <just_grep_it> its all part of learning
[7:30] <just_grep_it> at least it won't happen again!
[7:30] <ParkerR> just_grep_it, Dont underestimate people
[7:30] <lolbat> well, I just lost the os and the parition table
[7:30] <just_grep_it> dd is a deadly command...
[7:30] <lolbat> luckily I've been a backup maniac latley
[7:30] * [Saint] would normally make a subtle "language" comment, but, in this instance I would say such a slip was perfectly justified.
[7:30] <ParkerR> I once tab completed sudo rm -rf /usr/share Accidentally hit space
[7:30] <vincent_c> ouch...
[7:31] <just_grep_it> wait what are you trying to do? i assume since this is pi forum, you're trying to install raspberry pi on SD card?
[7:31] <just_grep_it> or are you trying to partition an SD card?
[7:31] <lolbat> I was trying to write the image on the sd card
[7:31] * klm[_] (milkman@unaffiliated/klm-/x-7727058) Quit (Read error: Operation timed out)
[7:31] <[Saint]> just_grep_it: there's this wonderful thing called backlog :)
[7:31] <just_grep_it> im new to this!
[7:31] <just_grep_it> im on here for some nagios help
[7:32] <lolbat> I accidentally wrote it to my main harddrive
[7:32] <just_grep_it> why don't you do it from a windows machine
[7:32] <ParkerR> ...
[7:32] <just_grep_it> and just do it like the guides on raspberrypi
[7:32] <ParkerR> win32diskimager is nice but dd <3
[7:32] <[Saint]> I assume because he likes his sanity ;)
[7:32] <ParkerR> [Saint], Exactly
[7:32] <just_grep_it> well, he must've lost some of it
[7:32] <just_grep_it> from losing his sda
[7:32] <ParkerR> Haha
[7:32] <ParkerR> :D
[7:32] <ParkerR> I like this guy
[7:32] <vincent_c> don't "the guides on raspberrypi" say to use dd if using a linux host anyways?
[7:33] <just_grep_it> it doesn't matter
[7:33] <\\Mr_C\\> hmm
[7:33] <just_grep_it> all you're doing is writing img to sd
[7:33] <\\Mr_C\\> im getting this continuous message
[7:33] <vincent_c> I'm not booting windows just to write an img to sd card
[7:33] <vincent_c> :P
[7:33] <[Saint]> There are tools that *may* be able to recover the damage from dd.
[7:33] <[Saint]> ddrd springs to mind.
[7:33] <just_grep_it> i learned my lesson using gparted
[7:33] <ParkerR> Or you could maybe get away with recreating the old partition table
[7:34] <\\Mr_C\\> [ 40.520981] mmc0: final write to SD card still running

[7:34] <\\Mr_C\\> whats this mean
[7:34] <lolbat> ParkerR: after overwriting the first 1.9GB?
[7:34] <\\Mr_C\\> it keeps repeating
[7:34] <[Saint]> I assume with writing 2GB to the primary disk at least *some* data was lost.
[7:34] <vincent_c> \\Mr_C\\: there's a bug filed on github about that
[7:34] <[Saint]> More than just the partition table, I mean.
[7:34] <vincent_c> I assume that you've only seen it after running 3.8?
[7:34] <\\Mr_C\\> yes
[7:34] <[Saint]> unless the partition table is 2GB plus? :)
[7:34] <vincent_c> is your pi overclocked or anything?
[7:35] <\\Mr_C\\> no
[7:35] <ParkerR> Well if there was anything important he would have a chance of recovery
[7:35] <just_grep_it> after reading these replies..i feel lucky. I downloaded the OS. pluggied it in to pi, and it WORKED
[7:35] <lolbat> lolcat@lolcat-laptop:~/Skrivebord$ sudo dd bs=1M if=2012-08-08-wheezy-armel.img of=/dev/sdc
[7:35] <lolbat> how long should this take?
[7:35] <just_grep_it> depending on SD card?
[7:35] <just_grep_it> a couple minutes?
[7:35] <lolbat> I preferably want to do this before I reboot or do something that bricks this machine
[7:36] <[Saint]> about 40 seconds here.
[7:36] <[Saint]> depends on the sdcard.
[7:36] <just_grep_it> depending on class of sd card
[7:36] <just_grep_it> ok so anyone here install any monitoring software on pi, sensu/nagios?
[7:36] <lolbat> 133 I thought
[7:36] <ParkerR> If you want to check the progress of dd in another terminal run sudo pkill -USR1 dd

[7:37] <vincent_c> I am
[7:38] * vincent_c shrugs
[7:38] <lolbat> maybe dd was damaged?
[7:38] <just_grep_it> im too scared
[7:38] <[Saint]> ParkerR: Ctrl+T would give some progress output, no?
[7:38] <vincent_c> I intend to try out f2fs
[7:38] <just_grep_it> ctrl shift t, top
[7:38] <ParkerR> [Saint], Would be news to me
[7:38] <vincent_c> but laziness/inertia means I haven't gotten to it yet
[7:38] <ParkerR> [Saint], Ctrl T in the terminal running dd?
[7:38] <vincent_c> but still running 3.8 anyways because it was only a rpi-update away

[7:39] <lolbat> the green light is blinking franticallyy, is that good?
[7:39] <ParkerR> Yes
[7:40] <lolbat> how long until Ill see something on the screen?
[7:40] <just_grep_it> a coupel seconds
[7:40] <ParkerR> Shouldnt take too long...
[7:40] <lolbat> been like 10
[7:40] <lolbat> it stopped blinking
[7:40] <just_grep_it> are you using an old sd card?
[7:40] <lolbat> started blinking again
[7:40] <lolbat> class 10
[7:40] <lolbat> verbatim
[7:40] <[Saint]> Well, matter of fact, you should see something on the screen *immediately* after power on.
[7:40] <just_grep_it> do you have a windows machine?
[7:41] <lolbat> no
[7:41] <[Saint]> You'll see the test image immediately, and it will start boot after ~1s
[7:41] <just_grep_it> hmm i just rpi-updated
[7:41] <just_grep_it> all deez new stuffs
[7:41] <ParkerR> You may have removed the SD card too soon after writing. Running "sync" after dd finsishes will ensure it has completely written
[7:42] <just_grep_it> ugh..does rpi-update somehow turn off ssh server
[7:43] <lolbat> there
[7:43] <lolbat> I now see stuff
[7:43] <ParkerR> just_grep_it, Not that I know of
[7:43] <lolbat> I removed the case and jiggled the hdmi
[7:43] <just_grep_it> oh okay, i was just being impatient with sudo reboot
[7:43] * peol (~andree@unaffiliated/peol) has joined #raspberrypi
[7:44] * ParkerR should do something with his Pi
[7:44] <lolbat> it seems to need a keyboard input -.-"
[7:44] <ParkerR> Been messing with other stuff :(
[7:44] <just_grep_it> you do
[7:44] <just_grep_it> only initially
[7:45] <vincent_c> you can get by without keyboard input with ssh
[7:45] <ParkerR> Messing with old Xbox and where the Pi used to be my portable machine, it got replaced with an Acer C7
[7:45] <vincent_c> just run raspi-config via ssh to stop it from appearing due to first boot
[7:46] * kimitake is now known as kimitake_idle
[7:47] <[Saint]> I _think_ you'be be able to get away with powering down the "hard way" and rebooting.
[7:47] <[Saint]> raspi-config /shouldn't/ run again.
[7:47] <lolbat> sooo
[7:47] <lolbat> how can I get past this stupid blue raspi-config screen?
[7:47] <ParkerR> He just suggested something
[7:47] <[Saint]> Depending on the wodel of the hardware, you could also short the p6 pins
[7:48] <lolbat> what pins to short?
[7:48] <lolbat> I have the good model
[7:48] <ParkerR> P6 header
[7:48] <lolbat> none is labeled p6
[7:49] <lolbat> I think I shorted the wrong ones
[7:49] <[Saint]> p6 is between the HDMI and the power microUSB
[7:49] <[Saint]> WHaoh!
[7:49] <[Saint]> WHat makes you think its a good idea to go shorting random pins?!?
[7:49] <[Saint]> DON'T do this! :)
[7:50] <[Saint]> The smiley face doesn't do the severity of this any justice.
[7:50] <lolbat> it says at boot that it starts sshd

[7:50] <lolbat> nope
[7:50] <lolbat> it is fine
[7:50] <lolbat> How will I know its IP?
[7:50] <[Saint]> Then, you're very lucky.
[7:50] <ParkerR> Check your router
[7:50] * DexterLB (~dex@ Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[7:51] <[Saint]> Check the router.
[7:51] <lolbat> I just shorted two of those pointy pins it has
[7:51] <ParkerR> ...
[7:51] <ParkerR> -_-
[7:51] <[Saint]> DO NOT do that.
[7:51] <lolbat> I don't use a router
[7:51] <[Saint]> EVER>
[7:51] <lolbat> I use a gigabit switch

[7:52] <lolbat> okay okay
[7:52] <lolbat> Ill try to avoid it
[7:52] <ParkerR> Theres no trying
[7:52] <ParkerR> Just dont
[7:52] <ParkerR> Also you dont have any USB keyboard laying around?
[7:53] <lolbat> so I need to dig out a router? I cant just connect it to a switch?
[7:53] <ParkerR> You can
[7:53] <ParkerR> It's just harer to figure out the IP
[7:53] <ParkerR> *harder
[7:53] <lolbat> I have one bluetooth and one ps/2 and one for a laptop
[7:53] <[Saint]> Here's where the p6 header is located IFF you have the right hardware version: http://raspi.tv/wp-content/uploads/2012/12/DSC_3661-e1355784030259-1024x624.jpg
[7:54] <vincent_c> lolbat: ...if none of the above suggestions work, you could also just look for the initscript that starts raspi-config and remove it
[7:54] <[Saint]> This is a "reboot switch".
[7:54] * hotsyk (~hotsyk@ Quit ()
[7:54] <lolbat> vincent_c: it looks like it starts sshd
[7:54] <lolbat> so I just need to guess its ip
[7:54] <ParkerR> vincent_c, Well now he's more worried about actually ssh'ing into it
[7:55] <vincent_c> ok, good, so he took my initial suggestion :)
[7:55] * Lupinedk is now known as lupinedk
[7:55] <lolbat> 37.191.218.* and a few more to scan through?
[7:55] <[Saint]> I was just going to say it should be trivial to brute force if you had to.
[7:55] <lolbat> I guess scanning 37.191.*.* would take a while...
[7:56] <[Saint]> If you know the base address of the switch, you can guess it.
[7:56] <ParkerR> Or go off the computers local IP
[7:56] * DexterLB (~dex@ has joined #raspberrypi
[7:56] * [Saint] nods
[7:56] <ParkerR> And + or - from there
[7:56] <lolbat> I don't use local IP, NAT was out of date in 2003
[7:56] <ParkerR> ...
[7:56] <ParkerR> So every device gets an outside address?
[7:57] <[Saint]> Oh, run...
[7:57] <lolbat> Swich only replies to, but nothing else on the network uses that
[7:57] <ParkerR> That must make port forwarding tough (or blocking for that matter)
[7:57] <[Saint]> errr, fun, even.
[7:57] <lolbat> ParkerR: yes, 37.191.*.* and an IPv6
[7:57] <lolbat> There is no firewall, hence no port forwarding
[7:57] <[Saint]> port forwarding must be a nightmare for you.
[7:57] <[Saint]> also....what!?!
[7:57] <[Saint]> Argh!
[7:57] <lolbat> I don't do port forwarding
[7:58] <ParkerR> Port forwarding isnt just about being a firewall
[7:58] <lolbat> each device has its own IPv4 and its own IPv6
[7:58] <lolbat> every port is accesible through the network
[7:58] <ParkerR> So every port is open to the outside world?
[7:58] <lolbat> and to the internet
[7:58] <lolbat> yes
[7:58] <ParkerR> Fail
[7:58] <[Saint]> oH DEAR...
[7:58] <ParkerR> Remind me to never hook into your network
[7:58] <[Saint]> Indeed.
[7:58] <Dagger2> lolbat: people get so confused without NAT, don't they?
[7:59] <lolbat> Dont you run ip-something or other in your linux?
[7:59] * sleetdrop (~sleetdrop@ has joined #raspberrypi
[7:59] <ParkerR> iptables? No
[7:59] <lolbat> Dagger2: I can't see why anyone would want a NAT
[7:59] <[Saint]> ifconfig will tell you
[7:59] <hybr1d8> because it is hard to get enough public IP addresses
[8:00] <lolbat> hybr1d8: I just plug in another device
[8:00] <vincent_c> NAT to me = single point of control, easier to administrate
[8:00] <ParkerR> Easier addressing, easier to keep up with, security
[8:00] <Dagger2> lolbat: neither can I, but boy do people think they need it
[8:00] <vincent_c> also, yeah, getting more public ip addresses can be expensive
[8:00] <hybr1d8> lolbat: if you are just plugging in a new device then you are not getting a new public IP
[8:00] <[Saint]> dyndns ftw.
[8:00] <lolbat> hybr1d8: I am
[8:00] <hybr1d8> public IP's are assigned out by icann
[8:00] <lolbat> no
[8:01] <hybr1d8> what sort of IP address are you using?
[8:01] <Dagger2> lolbat: see? NAT has nothing to do with central administration, yet here's someone thinking it does
[8:01] <hybr1d8> and who is assigning it?
[8:01] <lolbat> they are shared out by my ISPs dhcp server
[8:01] <lolbat> inet addr: Bcast: Mask:
[8:01] <lolbat> inet6 addr: fe80::ba88:e3ff:fe65:ebb5/64 Scope:Link
[8:01] <lolbat> those are this laptop
[8:01] <[Saint]> Well, with his setup, I think the safe question is "what sort of IP address are you, your neighbors, the entire city, and half of China using?"
[8:01] <[Saint]> :P
[8:01] <Dagger2> (no v6 addr?)
[8:01] <ParkerR> All ports are open ATTCK! Just kidding
[8:02] <lolbat> Dagger2: No point, I overwrote the sshd
[8:02] <lolbat> and rm, and half the programs I have installed...
[8:02] <ParkerR> overwrote?
[8:02] <ParkerR> How so?
[8:02] <lolbat> I did dd if=some-raspberry-image.img of=/dev/sda
[8:03] * PKodon (~PKodon@unaffiliated/pkodon) has joined #raspberrypi
[8:03] * Coffe (~mrGreen@nat.basefarm.se) has joined #raspberrypi
[8:04] <lolbat> so the root partition of this computers first 1.9GB is replaced
[8:04] <hybr1d8> My ISP doesn't give out that many public IP's - only one per connection
[8:04] <lolbat> hybr1d8: you get what you pay for
[8:04] <hybr1d8> and even if it did I would not want to work that way as there is too much risk
[8:04] <lolbat> hybr1d8: Would you share a phone number with your family and visitors?
[8:05] <lolbat> NATs aren't at all safe
[8:05] <hybr1d8> lolbat: there isn't even the option to get multiple IP's per connection from any ISP I know of here in .au
[8:05] <Dagger2> hybr1d8: yeah, say hello to a firewall. you can be just as safe without NAT
[8:05] <Triffid_Hunter> hybr1d8: several do it actually.. from memory internode will give you 8 if you ask
[8:05] <Triffid_Hunter> hybr1d8: I think iinet might as well on a business plan
[8:05] <hybr1d8> NAT's aren't safe or not safe - it is just a protocol
[8:06] <Dagger2> though that said, lolbat is not exactly in a position to run a centralized firewall for his network, since his ISP doesn't give him routed blocks of IP space
[8:06] <hybr1d8> but by separating the network to public/dmz/private you can retain greater control
[8:06] <Dagger2> hybr1d8: you can do the same even with public addresses
[8:07] <hybr1d8> Triffid_Hunter: I don't have a choice in ISP anyway - only one option exists for me :(

[8:10] <Triffid_Hunter> hybr1d8: hm, http://www.clubtelco.com.au/mobile_broadband_compare_plans.html only lists plans up to 15G, has yours been grandfathered?
[8:11] <hybr1d8> no - but you can have a 15G plan - and then purchase an additional 15G datablock (which I do each month)
[8:11] <hybr1d8> not ideal - but only option until NBN comes around
[8:11] * [Saint] wonders how someone survives with ~30GB of data a month.
[8:11] <[Saint]> I use that in ~1.2 days
[8:12] <Triffid_Hunter> hybr1d8: no NBN satellite for you yet? I thought they had those happening already
[8:12] <[Saint]> Ohhhhhhh...bad math. ~0.92 days, based on last month.
[8:13] <Triffid_Hunter> I'm out in the sticks and I have a 10MBit link with 200G quota
[8:13] <[Saint]> 0.92487 days to be precise.
[8:13] <hybr1d8> Not an option - Since 3G data is available and ADSL is available only a couple hundred metres away - I am classed as having 'broadband available in area'
[8:13] <Triffid_Hunter> hybr1d8: couple hundred meters? dude, make some biquads, get a wireless link happening

[8:14] <rymate1234> Just disconnect your house from the ADSL
[8:14] <[Saint]> Wait, what? You can't get satellite because you have ADSL coverage (technically speaking)?
[8:14] <rymate1234> and put foil everywhere
[8:14] <[Saint]> What foolery is this?
[8:14] <[Saint]> Does your Telco not *like* money...?
[8:15] <hybr1d8> basically -yes. Since ADSL is available 'in my area' according to government I'm not able to get the subsidy stuff for satellite
[8:15] <[Saint]> If I wanted to pay for sat connection, my telco wouldn't care one bit that I have fibre-to-the-door.
[8:15] <Triffid_Hunter> [Saint]: internet things in australia are pretty retarded at the moment
[8:15] <[Saint]> Triffid_Hunter: Apparently.
[8:15] <[Saint]> ANd I thought NZ was bad.
[8:15] <hybr1d8> and without subsidy the setup cost is more than $2000 and per-month costs are crazy
[8:15] <[Saint]> All my telco would see if "Foolish mortal wants a sat connection, lets charge him a BILLION dollars for it"
[8:16] <[Saint]> s/if/is/
[8:16] <hybr1d8> It would be cheaper for me to buy 10 USB 3G dongles + 10 data plans than go with sat
[8:16] <[Saint]> The fact that I can have other connectivity options doesn't factor in to it.
[8:16] <Triffid_Hunter> [Saint]: you do have 6x our population density.. that helps I'm sure!
[8:16] <[Saint]> Thatr's the weirdest telco related thing I've heard in a while.
[8:17] <[Saint]> "No, sir, you CAN'T pay for a sat connection because you already have access to an inferior connection"

[8:18] <[Saint]> Wow...our are very expensive for a massive data limit at ridiculous speeds.
[8:18] <Triffid_Hunter> biggest issue with satellite is the huge latency
[8:18] <[Saint]> *ours
[8:19] <[Saint]> At present I have two ADSL2+ connections bonded.
[8:19] <[Saint]> Works for me, decent speed, no cap.
[8:19] <hybr1d8> Just my crazy luck - I'm too far from the exchange, even though there is another exchange less than 500m from my house
[8:19] <hybr1d8> but I'm not connected to that one
[8:19] <[Saint]> Lucky boy and/or girl.
[8:20] <[Saint]> You've got my feels, buddy.
[8:20] <rymate1234> What's so good about satellite Internet
[8:20] <hybr1d8> and when I ask about getting things fixed telstra says they can put in a second line which 'might' let ADSL work but they can't guarantee (and it will cost about $1800 to try - no refunds if it doesn't work)

[8:21] <Triffid_Hunter> rymate1234: population density in Australia is ~3 people per square kilometer, vs 259 in the UK so our infrastructure has to go a lot further to serve a lot fewer people
[8:21] <rymate1234> Ah
[8:22] <[Saint]> That, and....dropbear attacks on linesmen.
[8:22] <[Saint]> Its a very real risk.

[10:21] <gordonDrogon> life was so much simpler when it was just 7-bit ASCII, although frustrating when in a country that didn't use $ as the currency symbol. Better when 8-bit ascii was in vogue, but utf8 ftw in these enlightened days...

I have video server programs (AirVideo/Subsonic/PS3 Media server) on my desktop and wanted to set up a Pi with XBMC at my grandmas house. Is there an easy/efficient way to stream video from my desktop to the Pi? 95% of the content is SD so streaming HD stuff shouldn't be an issue.
[11:02] <gordonDrogon> bigx, it's fiddly, but hover the mouse over the end of the wire on the first component to see what the highlight says /before/ you click the button to drag the wire.

[11:02] <gordonDrogon> bigx, selecting the right thing to drag the wire from is tricky in the schematic page, but you get the hang eventually.

[11:08] <neirpyc> what were you thinking?
[11:08] <neirpyc> you don't have to use the rss feature if it's not your thing
[11:08] <AmbassadorMatt> Well, subsonic and AirVideo are just stupidly simple so I'm spoiled by that
[11:08] <AmbassadorMatt> Subsonic updates it's library at 3am automatically every day

[11:10] <neirpyc> i thought you meant locally
[11:10] <neirpyc> my bad
[11:10] <AmbassadorMatt> I can do it with subsonic, but, it'd be a bit too hard for her
[11:10] <neirpyc> yeah
[11:10] <AmbassadorMatt> Nah, locally I got set up with PS3 Media server
[11:11] <neirpyc> you mentioned the pi, was just going through some of the solutions i've used for using mine as a htpc
[11:11] <neirpyc> over a network, i'm not sure of anything that's easy to use
[11:11] <AmbassadorMatt> Yeah, well, the idea is to set up a Pi at my grandmas house
[11:11] <AmbassadorMatt> And stream to that from my desktop
[11:11] <AmbassadorMatt> Again, if possible.
[11:12] <neirpyc> i know plex lets you do that, i think with the premium account or whatever
[11:12] <AmbassadorMatt> I figure if I can stream to any web browser in the world with ease, there's gotta be some way to stream to a Pi in a easy UI for her to handle.
[11:12] <neirpyc> you would have to run the plex server on your machine and setup rasplex on her end

[11:14] <AmbassadorMatt> Hmm, that might work.
[11:14] <neirpyc> http://rasplex.com/
[11:15] <neirpyc> there is the branch for the pi
[11:15] * gazzwi86 (~gazzwi86@ has joined #raspberrypi
[11:16] <AmbassadorMatt> The UI looks simple enough for her to handle, too.
[11:17] <AmbassadorMatt> And if the app will transcode video, I could use it on my iPad and replace AirVideo
[11:17] <neirpyc> yeah, and the pi has CEC capabilities
[11:17] <neirpyc> so she can use her tv remote with it
[11:17] <AmbassadorMatt> And it will stream to my parents LG Smart TV
[11:17] <AmbassadorMatt> Plex might be the way to go hmmmm
[11:18] <gazzwi86> I have quite a few Pi's I've been setting up in different building connecting to WiFi. Sometimes it fails to connect to the WiFi having been successful on previous boots. How can I fix that?
[11:19] <gazzwi86> sudo ifup wlan1 will work, but sometimes with won't complete the handshake and just sleep.
[11:19] * knoppies (ZNC@b03.passcod.name) Quit (Quit: Bye)
[11:19] <[deXter]> gazzwi86, you mean you get disconnected automatically after a while, and it won't automatically re-connect?
[11:20] <[deXter]> also, check your logs. dmesg and syslog, during the times of the disconnection to see what's exactly happening
[11:21] <gazzwi86> [dexter]: I can't be sure at the omen. I have them set up at bars and were working briefly but have since stopped dropping files on the server. I wanted to get an idea of potential issues before I show up to try and fix them
[11:21] * Olipro (~Olipro@uncyclopedia/pdpc.21for7.olipro) Quit (Ping timeout: 246 seconds)
[11:23] <AmbassadorMatt> neirpyc: Thanks a lot. Gonna look in to Plex a bit more, but looks like I can not only use it with a Pi rather easily, but I can also replace an existing program with it, assuming everything works out well
[11:24] <neirpyc> AmbassadorMatt: awesome, good luck!
[11:25] <AmbassadorMatt> I looked in to Plex awhile ago, but, it wasn't as filled out as it is now
[11:25] <[deXter]> gazzwi86, there could be many issues.. 1) flakey wifi adapter or firmware 2) insufficient power 3) wifi-sleep policy 4) incompatibility with routers 5) that bug in debian which can cause #4..
[11:25] <AmbassadorMatt> And I know it used to cost money. Can't tell if it does anymore, but, doesn't seem like it
[11:26] <jelly1> xbmc suits me fine :)
[11:26] <gazzwi86> [dexter]: Well I have this WiFi adapter, so it should be a power or flakey adapter I'd hope. Ive tested a few and it didn't seem to be an issue: http://www.edimax.co.uk/en/produce_detail.php?pd_id=328&pl1_id=1&pl2_id=44
[11:27] <AmbassadorMatt> jelly1: Yeah, the problem was though, I want to stream video from my house to a raspberry pi at my grandmas house, 20 miles away
[11:27] <jelly1> AmbassadorMatt: that's a problem
[11:27] <gazzwi86> [dexter]: whats the WiFi-sleep policy and deb bug?
[11:27] <jelly1> AmbassadorMatt: vpn + nfs?
[11:27] <AmbassadorMatt> Running plex through the Pi seems like the easiest way to do it
[11:27] <jelly1> sshfs would be sloww I guess
[11:28] <AmbassadorMatt> yeah, vpn isn't an option
[11:28] <AmbassadorMatt> I can use subsonic to stream video to any web browser on any computer, so I knew there was a way.

[11:30] <Triffid_Hunter> \\Mr_C\\: chroot requires binary compatibility with the host cpu
[11:30] <\\Mr_C\\> ok
[11:30] <Triffid_Hunter> \\Mr_C\\: so unless your desktop understands armv6, probably not
[11:30] <[deXter]> gazzwi86, yeah, that one should be fine, I use a similar one as well. The WiFi sleep policy can be changed using the command "if dev wlan0 set power_save off" (you may need to create a udev rule)
[11:30] <[deXter]> and the deb bug, I haven't reported it yet :)
[11:30] <Triffid_Hunter> \\Mr_C\\: you could use qemu, but that'll likely be even slower than the rpi
[11:31] <\\Mr_C\\> ok, i jacked up my sd card and need to do it again
[11:31] <jelly1> qemu isn't that slow
[11:31] <gazzwi86> [dexter]: have you got any docs you could fire me at for creating udev rules? I'm a linux n00b ish
[11:32] <[deXter]> gazzwi86, Since recent kernels, all debian and debian derivatives have this disconnection issue where the client deauthenticates from the access-point for no apparent reason, and then refuses to re-join, thinking its the wrong password. I'm trying to track this down to be a bit more specific, ie chipsets, router configuration etc

[11:45] * [Saint] spots wikipedia claiming both Model A and B have a single USB port
[11:46] <gordonDrogon> it's technically true..
[11:46] <jelly1> linuxstb: I don't suspect the gpu being able to support decoding :P
[11:46] <gordonDrogon> there is a single usb interface on the Pi, but on the B there is a hub ..
[11:47] <gordonDrogon> but possibly the wording could be improved. wonder if my old wikipedia login still works ...

[11:53] <jelly1> I hope the encoding program supports the gpu :p
[11:53] <linuxstb> My own I guess.

[12:53] <gordonDrogon> linkxs, you should be able to switch from one Pi to another and have it work - mixing would be the biggest issue I reckon, but simply viewing a stream needs no (arm) cpu assuming you can feed it directly into the gpu.
[12:53] <gordonDrogon> linkxs, oops- wrong person!
[12:53] <gordonDrogon> linuxstb, , you should be able to switch from one Pi to another and have it work - mixing would be the biggest issue I reckon, but simply viewing a stream needs no (arm) cpu assuming you can feed it directly into the gpu.
[12:55] <linuxstb> gordonDrogon: I've already hacked my pidvbip app to view 4 TV streams (from tvheadend - IIRC, it was 2 or 3 HD, and 2 or 1 SD), configured to output in different quarters of the screen, and that worked OK. The GPU even mixed the audio from the four channels.
[12:56] <gordonDrogon> linuxstb, well - cheap Pi security cameras here we come then ;-)
[12:57] <linuxstb> Yes, it's just a shame each camera needs its own Pi (IIUC)
[12:58] <gordonDrogon> I've seen commercial solutions that are very reasonably priced though. it would be hard to justify using a Pi when a black box with a hard drive and 8 video inputs (with power over video) taking inputs for 8 cameras can be had for under �500.
[12:58] <gordonDrogon> still you can use the Pi's for other things though!
[12:59] <gordonDrogon> so camera plus remote GPIO box.
[12:59] <gordonDrogon> poking GPIO commands from a central Pi (or Pi's)

[14:12] <burbankboy> im wondering
[14:12] <burbankboy> is it as easy to set stuff up for the pi as for any other pc
[14:12] <burbankboy> with the same OS
[14:12] <burbankboy> like, if i Install Ubuntu onto the pi, am I gonna have an easy of a time getting wifi usb dongles working as on a regular pc?
[14:12] * BCMM (~BCMM@unaffiliated/bcmm) has joined #raspberrypi
[14:12] <ShiftPlusOne> Well, first problem is that you cannot install ubuntu on the pi.
[14:12] * BCMM (~BCMM@unaffiliated/bcmm) Quit (Client Quit)
[14:13] <burbankboy> lol
[14:13] <ShiftPlusOne> But no, it's often not as easy, there are some things you need to take into account
[14:13] <burbankboy> i thought you could :)
[14:13] * tinti (~tinti@pdpc/supporter/student/tinti) has joined #raspberrypi
[14:13] <ShiftPlusOne> For example, you'll most likely need a powered hub for a wifi dongle.
[14:13] <burbankboy> ShiftPlusOne: Well, I'm gonna buy a starter kit
[14:13] <burbankboy> containing a power adapter and stuff like that
[14:14] <gordonDrogon> there are a few different Linuxes - the popular one is Raspbian which is Debian Wheezy tailoerd for the ARM CPU on the Pi.
[14:14] <burbankboy> first and foremost, i just wanna get it up and running
[14:14] <burbankboy> Ah, nice
[14:14] <linuxstb> burbankboy: To do what? If you're looking for a cheap desktop PC, the Pi isn't really it.
[14:14] * yorick (~yorick@oftn/member/yorick) has joined #raspberrypi
[14:14] <burbankboy> linuxstb: To experiment.
[14:14] <gordonDrogon> So, Pi, SD card and a power supply will get you going if you want to SSH into it. You'll need hdmi cable & screen, or composite for video and a usb keyboard.
[14:15] <ShiftPlusOne> burbankboy, I would recommend that you don't think of the pi as a PC, but treat it more like a mobile phone that runs linux without the mobile phone part.
[14:15] <Olipro> would I be able to use the Raspberry Pi to receive VGA output?
[14:15] * voldyman (uid11639@gateway/web/irccloud.com/x-aerebpmaygzxxmvy) has left #raspberrypi
[14:15] <burbankboy> gordonDrogon: Well, I'm buying a starter kit containing a box cover, power adapter and 32gb sd card

[14:16] * darkbasic (~quassel@niko.linuxsystems.it) has joined #raspberrypi
[14:16] <Triffid_Hunter> Olipro: only if you hooked up a usb video capture unit with a vga input.. the pi itself doesn't accept that sort of signal
[14:16] <burbankboy> because i wanna buy a usb wifi dongle as well
[14:16] <Olipro> ok, what about PS/2 input
[14:17] <linuxstb> burbankboy: Short answer I think is no. But the Pi community is huge, so if you can google, you can find instructions for almost anything.
[14:17] <Olipro> could I jerry-rig that to the GPIOs?
[14:17] * Jevermeister (~Jevermeis@unaffiliated/jever) Quit (Ping timeout: 248 seconds)
[14:17] <burbankboy> linuxstb: So if I understand correctly, I won't be able to buy just any old Wifi USB dongle and have it work via plug and play?
[14:17] <Triffid_Hunter> Olipro: possibly.. you'd need to level shift it.. not sure if the protocol is timing-sensitive. if it is, an arduino might be better suited
[14:17] * Spiffy (~Spiffy@unaffiliated/spiffy) has joined #raspberrypi

[14:19] <linuxstb> BTW, I've got a TP Link WN725N nano wifi adapter, and that works fine in the Pi, without any external power
[14:19] <linuxstb> (£10 in Argos if you're in the UK, probably cheaper online)

[14:20] <burbankboy> This means it'll work flawlessly, right?
[14:20] <burbankboy> linuxstb: haha yeah, I was looking at a similar one. :)
[14:20] <linuxstb> No, it means one person has said it worked for him/her ;)
[14:20] <burbankboy> linuxstb: yes, but i mean is that what the statement is indicating
[14:20] <burbankboy> that it worked as well as could be, for that person
[14:21] <linuxstb> I would guess so, but I wouldn't assume anything to be 100% certain.
[14:22] <burbankboy> im not
[14:23] <burbankboy> i think that goes without saying when it comes to this kinda stuff
[14:23] <burbankboy> just wanna make sure im not missing important cues

[15:45] <linuxstb> arcanescu: I don't think raspivid can do that out-of-the-box.
[15:45] <arcanescu> linuxstb: well what im trying to do is
[15:46] <arcanescu> pipe the output of stdout to gstreamer to stream.... all i get on the other end is a static image
[15:46] <arcanescu> almost as if it takes a picture and keeps sending that out
[15:46] <arcanescu> weird
[15:46] <linuxstb> Can gstreamer handle a raw h264 stream?
[15:46] <linuxstb> i.e. without any container.
[15:47] <arcanescu> yes
[15:47] <arcanescu> if it is h264 you might need to h264parse it .... which is being handled
[15:48] <linuxstb> I can't really help, I've never used gstreamer.
[15:48] <arcanescu> well hmm... its not a gst problem really... raspivid is acting all strange
[15:49] <arcanescu> i dont need an encoded stream from the camera just raw
[15:49] <linuxstb> I'm also still waiting for my camera to arrive, so can't really help there either ;)
[15:49] <linuxstb> It's much more efficient to get the GPU to encode directly from the camera - you don't want to be pushing uncompressed images around the Pi, and then trying to encode those
[15:50] <arcanescu> :) i already have a plugin that uses GPU to encode raw frames
[15:51] <arcanescu> so that is not a problem

[15:54] <linuxstb> I would quite like to modify raspivid so it wraps the H264 in an MPEG-TS and then multicasts it, so my TV server (tvheadend) can then read it as an IPTV service.
[15:55] <linuxstb> Do things work for you if you save some video to a file, then use gstreamer on that file?
[15:55] <burbankboy> Schnabeltier: It's in german.
[15:56] <burbankboy> Can't understand the site. :/
[15:56] <Schnabeltier> yes it's german

[16:39] <gbaman> so you are saying, you have the picam streaming to another device with lag under a second?

[16:40] * cccyRegeane_Away is now known as cccyRegeaneWolfe
[16:40] <jelly1> I have to build gst-plugins-bad with EGL support
[16:40] <jelly1> the pain is huge
[16:40] <gbaman> the reason i ask arcanescu is for my robot http://pi.gbaman.info/
[16:41] <arcanescu> linuxstb: %Cpu(s): 19.7 us, 7.8 sy,
[16:41] <gbaman> currently I have been using a usb webcam running at 2-3 fps with mjpeg streamer
[16:41] <arcanescu> gbaman: yes under 1 sec... let me see if i can make a video of this
[16:41] <linuxstb> arcanescu: Hmm, higher than I would have thought.
[16:41] <arcanescu> linuxstb: it goes to 6...6.3
[16:42] <arcanescu> linuxstb: i have alot of stuff running in the background
[16:42] <jelly1> get a webcam that outputs mjpg and mjpgstreamer will work fine ;)
[16:42] <jelly1> since we don't seem to have jpg encoding support in mjpgstreamer ;)

[16:42] <gbaman> it already works just not with the picam
[16:42] <gbaman> due to a lack of v4l drivers yet
[16:43] <arcanescu> gbaman: so you want to stream to a droid?
[16:43] <gbaman> no, normally i use an ipad
[16:43] <gbaman> so a webpage
[16:43] <arcanescu> that is going to have lag...
[16:44] <gbaman> well, currently streaming with netcat has 6-10 seconds of lag
[16:44] <gbaman> and that is just to mplayer on another machine
[16:45] <arcanescu> gbaman: i have on another machine under 2 secs... thats for sure... not tried on the droid yet....
[16:45] <arcanescu> let me make a video and you can judge
[16:45] <gbaman> wait, you said milliseconds...
[16:45] <arcanescu> yes thats what i meant
[16:45] <yehnan> gbaman: 6-10 seconds of lag, are two machines in the same local network?
[16:46] <gbaman> yes
[16:46] <gbaman> seems to be a rather large buffer
[16:46] <yehnan> gbaman: mine is about 4 seconds of lag
[16:46] <gbaman> still 4 seconds is too much for a robot
[16:46] <gbaman> i need less than about 1.5 seconds
[16:46] <yehnan> gbaman: hmm... you use wifi or wired?
[16:46] <gbaman> wifi
[16:46] <linuxstb> gbaman: You could try changing mplayer's cache - e.g. "mplayer -cache 64 …."

[16:50] <gbaman> i did, 512 seems minimum

[17:36] <burbankboy> gbaman: yeah
[17:37] <burbankboy> what i wanna do is just, encase the pi with a keyboard on top of the case
[17:37] <burbankboy> and power it thru usb
[17:37] <burbankboy> using a usb hub
[17:37] <gbaman> yes
[17:37] <gbaman> that should work
[17:37] <gbaman> as long as the hub is a good high power one
[17:37] <burbankboy> yeah
[17:37] <gbaman> then it will be fine
[17:37] <burbankboy> could i attach an lcd monitor too?
[17:37] <burbankboy> or is that too much power
[17:38] <gbaman> a usb monitor?
[17:38] <burbankboy> a usb-powered hdmi monitor
[17:38] <burbankboy> i guess that'd make it some kind of laptop
[17:38] <burbankboy> which is too much i suppose
[17:38] <gbaman> if you are using a powered usb hub it shouldnt matter what you attach
[17:38] <gbaman> the power is coming from the hub
[17:38] <burbankboy> alright, cool :)
[17:38] <burbankboy> aye
[17:38] <gbaman> so all depends on the hub
[17:38] <burbankboy> yeah

[17:40] <burbankboy> like those snug-fitting plastic ones
[17:40] <pwillard> to be cute with a laser cutter
[17:40] <burbankboy> haha
[17:40] <burbankboy> thats pretty bad
[17:40] <burbankboy> :(
[17:40] <burbankboy> does it need any vents at all?
[17:40] <gbaman> well, some air around the processor would be good
[17:40] <burbankboy> aight
[17:40] <pwillard> Adafruits original laser cut case has no holes
[17:40] <burbankboy> but no vents?
[17:40] <gbaman> but does not really need any vents
[17:41] <burbankboy> cool
[17:41] <gbaman> if the pi gets too hot it will scale down the processor anyway

[17:42] <gbaman> yes
[17:42] <burbankboy> ok
[17:42] <burbankboy> it'd be cool having one of those silicon keyboards

[18:45] <dreamreal> lolbat: generally so, but test
[18:45] <lolbat> it appears to be working
[18:45] <hellsing> Triffid_Hunter, sure , but we can always have more :p
[18:45] <lolbat> this case seems to make it hard/impossible to use hdmi though
[18:45] <dreamreal> lolbat: sure. If it works, chances are it works well. But you can also test by measuring the current between TP1 and TP2.
[18:46] <hellsing> the voltage*
[18:46] <lolbat> I am so uncertain about what I want to use the rberrypi for
[18:46] <hellsing> use it as a dhcp server :p
[18:47] <lolbat> Why on earth would I want anything other than external IPs?
[18:48] <Bushmills> ipv4? because addresses are in short supply, maybe?

[19:35] <burbankboy> Well boys and girls
[19:36] <burbankboy> you're looking at the proud new owner of a raspberry pi
[19:36] <burbankboy> i finally did it
[19:36] <pwillard> hehe you won't regret
[19:36] <dreamreal> cool deal
[19:36] <burbankboy> two days ago i told myself "NO MORE frivolous spending"
[19:36] <burbankboy> "NO MORE"
[19:36] <burbankboy> "thats IT"
[19:36] <burbankboy> "this is FINAL"
[19:36] <burbankboy> and now i own a pi.
[19:36] <dreamreal> the raspi isn't frivolous! It's only $35, anyway, so even if it were frivolous it's not enough to register
[19:36] <gordonDrogon> Mmmm frivolous spending .... ;-)
[19:36] <gyeben> burbankboy: buying a Pi is not a frivolous spending
[19:37] <burbankboy> well...
[19:37] <gyeben> oops, too late :)
[19:37] <burbankboy> um..
[19:37] <burbankboy> i might have bought a keyboard, case and some other stuff too..
[19:37] <burbankboy> ;'(

[19:41] * Alfihar (~Yuuka@home.siberios.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[19:41] <ant_thomas> Nope. Usually need a separate power supply that can supply ~1A at 5V
[19:41] <burbankboy> Actually I did find one of those apple charging socket plugs
[19:41] <ant_thomas> Got a phone charger?
[19:41] <burbankboy> could i connect the mini usb into that one and plug it into the power outlet?
[19:42] <burbankboy> aside from that i dont have a phone charger i thin
[19:42] <burbankboy> k
[19:43] <ant_thomas> It's a Micro USB cable for the Pi. If the apple charger supplies 1A which I think it might you can usually use that
[19:43] <burbankboy> ok
[19:43] <burbankboy> ill plug this sucker in

[19:45] <plugwash> genuine apple chargers are fine afaict
[19:46] <burbankboy> would there be any danger in running a pi from within a beer can?
[19:46] <plugwash> counterfiet apple chargers can be more problematic :/
[19:46] <burbankboy> nah, im using the one i got with my iphone or ipad or w/e
[19:46] <gordonDrogon> getting it in the beer can in the first place...
[19:46] <burbankboy> ill cut off the bottom or something
[19:46] <ant_thomas> and then making sure there's nothing conductive touching the sides
[19:46] <gordonDrogon> why a beer can?
[19:46] <plugwash> assuming the can is dry and you build appropriate supports to make sure that the solder joints on the board don't touch the can you should be fine

[20:26] <burbankboy> but nvm
[20:26] <burbankboy> thx tho

[23:20] <Firehopper> nickwebcouk, use the raspbi-config thing I think
[23:20] <ozzzy> so I don't know how you're going to get 12v out of it
[23:20] <rikkib> setting ip in cmdline.txt also has special needs such as manually setting a default route
[23:20] <nickwebcouk> Bushmills: Firehopper tried the raspi-config, plus dpkg-reconfigure tzdata, yeah, to change it showing from BST to GMT, i.e
[23:20] <burbankboy> okay
[23:21] <nickwebcouk> https://gist.github.com/nickwebcouk/39081424dcb989bfe3e7
[23:21] <Firehopper> eventually I will use a stepdown voltage converter to power my lcd and pi. but for now, 2 power supplys
[23:21] <Bushmills> nickwebcouk: dpkg-reconfigure tzdata
[23:21] <Bushmills> assuming raspbian

[23:21] <ozzzy> I bring 12v in and split it out to 8.1v and 5.1v
[23:21] <nickwebcouk> Bushmills: done that, selected Europe/London, still BST. Even tried changing the locale. No dice. :(
[23:21] <Firehopper> I got heatsinks on my pi and lcd controller. so its closer to being usable :)
[23:22] <Bushmills> nickwebcouk: how do you know that it's still wrong?
[23:22] <Firehopper> still is mounted on a bit of plywood though :)
[23:22] <Firehopper> nick have you rebooted?
[23:22] <nickwebcouk> typing in date into the terminal gives me the above paste. Im hoping for a GMT instead...
[23:22] <Firehopper> dont know if that helps or not
[23:23] <Bushmills> BST is british summer time?
[23:23] <Bushmills> sond righ
[23:23] <Bushmills> sounds
[23:23] <Bushmills> right
[23:23] <nickwebcouk> Firehopper: done that also. Bushmills, yeah, BST is British Summer Time, but its 1 hour behind (GMT +1 is correct just now)
[23:24] <nickwebcouk> hang on. I've just made a cock of myself...
[23:24] <Simon-> you set the TZ to London and wondered why it was giving you BST?
[23:24] <nickwebcouk> it would appear I've been reading the wrong pi. I have 2 and havnt set one up properly.
[23:24] <Bushmills> UTC+1 should be it now now. which is GMT, afaik. (that is, GMT taking account of summertime, UTC doesn't)

[23:58] <harris> i need more dropbox space
[23:58] <gordonDrogon> so why not just ask people to use your referral link directly ...
[23:58] <harris> if you sign up via that link we both get 500 mb extra space

[23:59] <harris> oh ok
[23:59] <harris> can you give the link to your friends
[23:59] <harris> i really need space3
