[1:15] <Sonny_Jim> Normally, when scrollock is pressed it disables the UI keys
[1:15] <Sonny_Jim> Unfortunately on the Pi version it seems to ignore this
[1:15] <Sonny_Jim> So when I try pressing F1 under BBC B emulation, it sends F1 to the emulator core AND opens the help window
[1:16] <Sonny_Jim> When I try this on other platforms it only sends F1 to the emulator core

[2:25] <hotch> not sure the proper channel but i do believe that many of us share common interests. I'm not really "into" ownCloud, writing my own osx contacts sync service for the pi now, but is there YET a "dropbox clone" out there that is just that … not a zillion other features that i don't need? anyone found anything, let me know .. :)

[2:27] <troulouliou_dev> hotch, i like spideroak for the encryption approach
[2:27] <troulouliou_dev> hotch, the nonzillion feature one is ubuntu one i guess
[2:27] <hotch> i did notice spider oak, are you using it on a pi?
[2:28] <hotch> heh
[2:28] <troulouliou_dev> hotch, ha no i m not even sure if it can work without gui
[2:28] <hotch> don't let me rant but i think that its bullshit that people want open source freebies and done contribute themselves. a dropbox clone with a few clients and a server could be done with a team so fast :/
[2:29] <hotch> troulouliou_dev: not directed at you sir :)

[2:31] <troulouliou_dev> hotch, but a perso cloud server + encrypted partition+ vpn + encfs + rsync can fit
[2:31] <hotch> sney: thx on the heads up
[2:32] <troulouliou_dev> hotch, and contribution to community through a blog post ;)
[2:32] <hotch> yes, i do like that idea - i think that my biggest issue is that say … i am on osx? just like dropbox i should have files syncing visually ala my toolbar.
[2:32] <hotch> hehe troulouliou_dev do you code? what's your poison
[2:33] <troulouliou_dev> hotch, poison ?

[2:35] <hotch> hehe quote of the week. java when needeed
[2:35] <troulouliou_dev> hotch, what are you using your pi for ?
[2:36] <troulouliou_dev> i bought 2 one year ago and after a led blink test i needed month to find a real use of the

[3:55] <jdriver> Hello. Anyone have experience running a RAID 5 disk array on a raspberry?
[3:56] <sney> not directly, but it'd just be md like on any other linux device
[3:56] <sney> (and slow)
[3:56] <pksato> ON a NAS?
[3:57] * SgrA (~sgra@gateway/tor-sasl/sgra) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[4:00] * _BigWings_ (~Thunderbi@modemcable055.111-22-96.mc.videotron.ca) Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[4:00] <jdriver> well i haven't implemented it yet
[4:00] <jdriver> currently have 2 x 2tb drives, with a script backing up one drive to the other
[4:00] <jdriver> but i'm running out of space
[4:00] <jdriver> it'd be nice to get a third or fourth drive
[4:01] <sney> md is really easy to use, there are a ton of manuals out there
[4:01] <sney> and it's just part of the linux kernel so there's not much overhead
[4:01] <jdriver> but i've heard, like has been mentioned, that maybe the rip can't keep up computation wise
[4:01] <jdriver> md, i'll have to look into that, not familiar
[4:01] <sney> basically any time you see an embedded device with a raid that runs linux, it's using md. and any time someone does software raid on a linux system, it's md or fakeraid
[4:02] <sney> sometimes it's just called "linux kernel raid" but md is the actual name
[4:02] <jdriver> looks like md supports raid 5 (and 6!) so if it runs well that's the solution
[4:02] <jdriver> thanks
[4:02] <sney> the pi can probably do the parity required but your disk i/o will get pretty slow
[4:03] <jdriver> i can live with that, nothing speed critical
[4:03] * _BigWings_ (~Thunderbi@modemcable055.111-22-96.mc.videotron.ca) has joined #raspberrypi
[4:05] <pksato> jdriver: you need a JBOD.
[4:06] <sney> well, actual raid parity is usually a good idea over jbod.
[4:06] <jdriver> i need data redundancy so i don't think jbod would work
[4:07] <pksato> 2TB is lot of data. CERN data? :)
[4:07] <jdriver> i'll set it up over the next few days as parts arrive, i'll report here how it goes. it's also running as a wifi hotspot and torrent server so it might overwhelm the little guy
[4:08] <sney> yeah that might be a stretch. you could always get another one
[4:08] <jdriver> naw, just personal/compsci studies stuff
[4:09] <pksato> rpi is very slow to disk I/O, have only one USB bus.
[4:10] <jdriver> yeah but that's still 60mB/s, more than enough (in theory) for my needs
[4:10] * _cheney (~cheney@nat.sierrabravo.net) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[4:10] <jdriver> even counting in my 4mB/s internet
[4:10] <pksato> 60mili bytes per second is really slow. :)
[4:10] * _cheney (~cheney@nat.sierrabravo.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[4:10] <sney> haha I was going to say
[4:11] <jdriver> faster than any write i do locally on my computer
[4:11] <jdriver> i think 2.5" drives, at least on my mac, well i don't see anything greater than 6 or so
[4:12] <jdriver> so i think the bus is faster than the write speed of the physical media
[4:14] <sney> the joke is that a small m means 'mili', as in the metric prefix meaning 1/1000
[4:14] <sney> when you're saying Mega you need M
[4:14] <jdriver> oops just tested it, my 2.5" drives can handle about 20MB/s, thanks for the correction
[4:15] <chithead> in most cases there is little confusion possible between mega and milli
[4:16] <sney> indeed, but it's still wise to be accurate anyway

[11:10] <bacobart> sure akismet blocks comment spam
[11:10] <bacobart> but on wordpress you end up with 90% of your registrations being spammers
[11:10] <ShiftPlusOne> change the registration url
[11:10] <bacobart> yeah there are all sorts of tricks
[11:10] <ShiftPlusOne> or disable registration if you don't need it
[11:11] <bacobart> but as gordonDrogon mentioned it just takes a while before they figure it out and the spam starts all over;p

[11:21] <neilr> I had a Transcend 4GB card. Couldn't boot from it. I could mount it on other machines, fsck it, copy data to/from it. But not boot.

[11:22] <neilr> Yup - mine worked fine up until Monday
[11:22] <ShiftPlusOne> MordFustang, 1) what happens to the LEDs when the card is plugged in? 2) What files are located on the first partition of the card?
[11:22] <ShiftPlusOne> So you're 100% sure you're writing the image correctly then?
[11:22] <neilr> I copied the /boot partition from a known good card to the Transcend card. Still wouldn't boot.
[11:22] <MordFustang> only red led is on when plug power in and first partiton is boot

[12:09] <MrVector> Is it possible? supported? Harder? The reason I'm looking at it is that it's got a bit more... oompf. :)

[12:17] <workingcats> chris_99, nvidia has been fine for linux for a long time, except for graphics. not that that statement doesnt explicitly address graphics ;)
[12:18] <chris_99> yeah i guess MrVector
[12:18] <ShiftPlusOne> I would say it would be harder, since the pi is very education-centric, which means you get a lot of tutorials, like the cambridge one

[12:31] <MrVector> 10/100 is enough, of course 1000 would be prefered but not a requirement
[12:32] <MrVector> I don't think the nic is the bottleneck on the pi though, is it? In the whole "read from sd/usb -> Nic -> *"
[12:32] <ShiftPlusOne> Pi is going through USB, so you'd have to figure out a way to implement the USB and ethernet stack all in bare metal and that's not an easy task.
[12:33] <ShiftPlusOne> but I can't say anything on that topic without making stuff up so..
[12:34] <ShorTie> sounds like an awfull lot of work for not much, imho

[12:44] <Mortvert> don't think that's possible.
[12:44] <SgtBurned> Using an old MCP23S17 chip so I have the pins for it, then sending the binary sequence to rotate one by one. Trouble is making 2 rotate at the same time, the loop just can't quite seem to time properly.
[12:44] <MrVector> wooooooosch
[12:45] <MrVector> *the sound of information flying above MrVector's head*
[12:45] <SgtBurned> xD
[12:45] <gordonDrogon> SgtBurned, if you only want one direction then use a stepper motor controller.
[12:45] <MrVector> Some day I'll buy a "Electronics for dummies" and play around. Until that day I'm a Software man
[12:46] <SgtBurned> I need 2 Directions for 2 different steppers
[12:46] <gordonDrogon> with these you just pulse each step and the controller does the rest - although they have a 2nd input pin for direction.
[12:46] <SgtBurned> I have to use this board. It's the project I have right now
[12:46] <gordonDrogon> what does the board have on it?
[12:46] <SgtBurned> 32 digital outputs
[12:46] <SgtBurned> 8 of those are digital in's
[12:46] <SgtBurned> rest are outputs
[12:47] <gordonDrogon> and that's 2 x mcp23s17's ?
[12:47] <SgtBurned> Yes :)
[12:47] <gordonDrogon> so SPI.
[12:47] <SgtBurned> Yeah
[12:47] <gordonDrogon> ok. good luck there then ;-)

[12:47] <SgtBurned> Just need to do 2 different steppers in different directions
[12:48] <gordonDrogon> what you could do is wire both mcp23s17's in parallel - using the same CE line off the Pi.
[12:48] <gordonDrogon> then you could put a stepper on each chip and move them simultaneously.
[12:48] * gordonDrogon ponders
[12:48] <gordonDrogon> actually, you can do it with one chip - 4 outputs from each chip to the 4 wires of the stepper (unipolar)
[12:48] <gordonDrogon> then load up 8-bit words to the output register to move the stepper.
[12:49] <MrVector> My (very ambitious) plan is to one day port my little OS from the pi to a modern computer. We'll see how that goes! :)

[16:37] <SpeedEvil> hmm
[16:37] <gordonDrogon> holy pin number confusion. batman )-:
[16:38] <gordonDrogon> when the Pi is in halt state (Linux kernel halt) then it can be rebooted by taking either of the I2C pins to ground for a few milliseconds. You need to release the pins, else it will boot into the recovery kernel.
[16:38] <Mjolinor> I think I am going to have to power the PIC from 3.3 and remove hte series resistors
[16:39] <gordonDrogon> the I2C pins are physical P1 pins 3 & 5.
[16:39] <Mjolinor> was hoping to avoid that but I think the series resistor is probably preventing the line going low enough.
[16:39] <IT_Sean> Isn't that what the reset header does on the rev 2 boards?
[16:39] <IT_Sean> can't that "wake" a halted Pi?
[16:39] <SgtBurned> gordon, if you put avoid_safe_mode=1 into the config it will not go into safe mode when powered from the GPIO
[16:39] <gordonDrogon> you need to drive the lines low via an open-collector output.
[16:39] <SgtBurned> Yes
[16:39] <gordonDrogon> as the Pi has 1.8K pull-up on-board.
[16:39] * mickn (~mickn@unaffiliated/mickn) Quit (Quit: ZNC - http://znc.in)
[16:39] <Mjolinor> the problem with using hte reset pin is that I cannot tell if the Pi is finished shutting down or not, there is no way to do that
[16:39] <gordonDrogon> SgtBurned, what's 'safe mode' ?
[16:40] <gordonDrogon> you mean boot the emergeny kernel?
[16:40] <SgtBurned> Yeah
[16:40] <Mjolinor> so if power comes back on before the Pi is shutdown a reset may corrupt things which is exactly what I am trying to avoid
[16:40] <SgtBurned> Roughly the same thing
[16:40] <IT_Sean> Mjolinor: is ACT still blinking?
[16:40] <SgtBurned> :)
[16:40] <IT_Sean> :p
[16:40] <SgtBurned> Im not hardware sorry
[16:40] <Mjolinor> no
[16:40] <Mjolinor> just a solid red LED that is all
[16:41] <gordonDrogon> I have successfully brought a Pi out of sleep mode with an external atmega processor.
[16:41] <gordonDrogon> I have a board in-front of me now that does just that...
[16:41] <gordonDrogon> I can tell the atmega "wake me in 3 hours", then do a halt on the Pi, and in 3 hours it wakes up...
[16:41] * mickn (~mickn@unaffiliated/mickn) has joined #raspberrypi
[16:42] <IT_Sean> that's a handy trick, gordonDrogon.
[16:42] <Mjolinor> the atmega is running on 3.3 or 5?
[16:42] <IT_Sean> Could use it for anything you needed to monitor perioditically over a long period. Wake up, take measurements, report, sleep for 3 hours, repeat.
[16:42] <gordonDrogon> 5
[16:42] <Mjolinor> I think it must be hte series resistor that is the problem as it sometimes works adn soemtimes doesn't but is more likely to work if I have my scop eon the pin
[16:42] <gordonDrogon> IT_Sean, that's the idea.
[16:42] <IT_Sean> That's pretty awesome, actually.
[16:42] <Mjolinor> so are you using a resistor to drop the voltage?
[16:43] <Mjolinor> or are you abusing your Pi with 5 volts :)
[16:43] <IT_Sean> Could save a LOT of power that way, if running off a batt.
[16:43] <gordonDrogon> Mjolinor, use an open collector driver to pull the pin low. Remember there is a 1.8K resistor pulling it to 3.3v.
[16:43] <Mjolinor> no need to bother with that, I can jsut make the pin an input and change to output when I need hte pulse
[16:44] <gordonDrogon> I'm actually using a pair of FETs in 3.3 - 5v I2C voltage change mode.
[16:44] <Mjolinor> rather than changing the state of the pin I will jsut change from input to output, that will remove hte problem of 5 votls
[16:44] <gordonDrogon> because the processor then uses I2C to communicate with the Pi once the Pi is booted.
[16:45] <gordonDrogon> Mjolinor, don't enable the internal pull up on your �C
[16:45] <Mjolinor> its jsut booted now
[16:45] <Mjolinor> the internal pull ups are all disabled anyway
[16:45] <Mjolinor> took it close to 20 minutes then to accept the start pulse
[16:45] <gordonDrogon> le me check my code..
[16:46] <gordonDrogon> I keep it low for 100mS
[16:47] <Mjolinor> I oculdnt find anythign to tell me how long the pulse needs to be
[16:47] <Mjolinor> it has jsut booted into safe mode and my pulse is currently 1.6 seconds so shorter than that is the order of the day
[16:47] <gordonDrogon> I suspect it's edge triggered in the GPU.
[16:48] <Mjolinor> I think so to as its good down to less than 50 micro seconds
[16:48] <gordonDrogon> it's a shame it can't go any lower power though.
[16:48] <Mjolinor> 100ma when its asleep is pretty grim
[16:49] <gordonDrogon> plan B on my board is to have the atmega shut-down the 5v supply too - it runs on a coin cell anyway.
[16:49] * _pault_ (~paul@cloudwms.co.uk) has left #raspberrypi
[16:49] <SgtBurned> So how did you fix it or is it still "Borked"
[16:50] <gordonDrogon> the SMPS has an enable pin I can use, but I'd need to make sure it doesn't drain the coin cell, so connect a little FET to it. current when on the coin cell is currently < 1nano amp.
[16:50] <IT_Sean> Could you control a small relay, somehow? Halt the Pi, then cut power to it... then restore power when time to wake?
[16:51] <Mjolinor> I could do that
[16:51] <gordonDrogon> a latch on/latch off relay might work.
[16:51] <Sonny_Jim> Relay uses a lot of juice though

[17:36] <Sonny_Jim> ah good
[17:36] <sney> route back?
[17:36] <SirLagz> derp.
[17:36] <Sonny_Jim> What's the setup?

[17:37] <SirLagz> oh....no the route didnt' help
[17:37] <Sonny_Jim> How are they connected
[17:37] <SirLagz> the setup is this
[17:37] <sney> yeah I was going to say it turns out my suggestion doesn't actually make sense
[17:37] <SirLagz> Pi-1 -- > WiFi --> Pi 2
[17:37] <SirLagz> Pi-1 is using hsotapd
[17:37] <SirLagz> hostapd*
[17:37] <Sonny_Jim> Ok
[17:37] <SirLagz> Pi 2 is connecting to Pi 1 using a wifi stick
[17:37] <Sonny_Jim> I've done that before, so I maybe fonzy with this
[17:37] <sney> so one pi is the access point and the other is the client, which one is having the problem
[17:38] <Sonny_Jim> Can your laptop connect to Pi-1
[17:38] <SirLagz> the client
[17:38] <SirLagz> Sonny_Jim: if I didn't have mac address filtering, yes it could.
[17:38] <Sonny_Jim> I've had it where certain clients wouldn't connect to hostapd for some bizarre reason
[17:38] <SirLagz> well the thing is
[17:38] <SirLagz> the wifi is connected
[17:38] <Sonny_Jim> Do you have a dhcpd server
[17:38] <SirLagz> yes
[17:38] <SirLagz> using dnsmasq
[17:38] <Sonny_Jim> dnsmasq?
[17:38] <SirLagz> though I have both Pis on static IPs atm
[17:38] <Sonny_Jim> What howto did you follow
[17:38] <SirLagz> my own :D
[17:39] <Sonny_Jim> ok
[17:39] <Sonny_Jim> Paste your erm
[17:39] <sney> if the access point pi can ping the client pi, then you can assume that layer 1 and 2 communications are working

[17:41] <Sonny_Jim> Pi1 Hostapd <-> Pi2
[17:41] <Sonny_Jim> Or is there an AP as well?
[17:42] <Sonny_Jim> Because it sounds like you want a wifi bridge
[17:42] <SirLagz> nope. just Pi 1 (Hostapd) --> Pi 2
[17:42] <Sonny_Jim> Okey dokey
[17:42] <Sonny_Jim> things you need:
[17:42] <Sonny_Jim> hostapd configured, try without encryption first
[17:42] <SirLagz> hostapd works fine
[17:42] <SirLagz> other devices can connect
[17:42] <Sonny_Jim> Ok
[17:43] <sney> have you been able to connect the client to another ap?
[17:43] <Sonny_Jim> Remember what I said about certain clients not working with hostapd
[17:43] <SirLagz> sney: yep

[18:22] <doorknob60> hi. I'm running raspbian on some devices to use as digital signage (contstantly display an HTML page), and am having issues with memory leaks in browsers. Is there a way to update to the latest Iceweasel/Firefox in Raspbian?
[18:22] <handuel> doorknob60: Either just download the latest version from the site, or use the wheezy backports repo
[18:23] <patagonicus> Maybe try a different browser. Midori should be preinstalled.
[18:23] <doorknob60> we tried Midori, but after a day or two or running, it crashed due to memory leaks
[18:23] <doorknob60> I will look at the backports repo though.
[18:23] <PhotoJim> doorknob60: you could just set up a cron job to kill the browser and restart it every 12 hours or so.
[18:23] <handuel> doorknob60: Are you sure it's memory leaks, it could just be chance, after a while something will go wrong
[18:23] <PhotoJim> that might be simpler.

[18:24] <doorknob60> restarting it could certainly be an option, as obviously nobody will see it overnight

[18:24] * DexterLB (~dex@79-100-22-189.btc-net.bg) has joined #raspberrypi
[18:24] <patagonicus> Restarting the browser regulary is just an ugly hack. I'd rather fix the problem then work around it. But if backports doesn't help it may be the best option.
[18:24] <doorknob60> we are pretty sure it is memory, at least with Midori, because you could watch the memory usage rise in top
[18:25] <handuel> doorknob60: That would sound like memory leaks then yes :)
[18:25] <doorknob60> I'll also try Chromium, as it might handle memory better
[18:25] <patagonicus> Does the page use JavaScript? Maybe the script has a memory leak.
[18:25] <handuel> The think is finding something with as little memory leaks as you can (everything will have leaks somewhere)
[18:26] <doorknob60> we are using Concerto: http://www.concerto-signage.org/ as the backend. I haven't looked at the source much, but I assume it uses JS, but I also assume the devs of it have fairly stable code

[18:27] <doorknob60> and we have it running currently on old Dell PCs and it can stay running for weeks on those
[18:28] <patagonicus> There should be tools in Firefox or Chrome that monitor memory usage of JavaScript, you could take a look at it with that. If you see a leak, file a bug report.
[18:29] <PhotoJim> patagonicus: it's an ugly workaround, but also a trivially simple one.

[18:36] <handuel> Can someone explain to me why this: http://i.imgur.com/G4X921Y.png works? Apparentely the output is high (3.3v) and low (0v? I don't know) when the button is pushed, surely when the button is pressed the circuit will just become a parralel one. And voltage will flow to the output and to ground. Why is this not the case.

[18:38] <workingcats> handuel, more or less wild guessing, exposing how little i remember of my electronics... presumably something will be connected to the out, so most of the flow will be to ground. something along those lines anyways..

[18:41] <gordonDrogon> handuel, the input to the pin is at 3.3v until the button is pushed - then it drops to 0v.
[18:41] <Mjolinor> because you are connecting Out to ground
[18:41] <gordonDrogon> handuel, the resistor pulls it to 3.3v

[18:49] <Mjolinor> because when the switch is open thepotential divider is the resistor + whatever impedance oyu have to ground on your load circuit, if this is a normal microprocessor input it will be very large compared to the resistor

[18:54] <handuel> Mjolinor: ONe final question, the book states that the circuit wouldn't work if the switch just connected the +3.3v in, and the ouput, and then you had a program checking if the pin was high. Why is this?
[18:55] <Mjolinor> the input pin will float when the switch is not pressed
[18:55] <Mjolinor> it is therefore undefined and because hte circuit you are driving is such hish impedance it will change at random

[18:56] <handuel> Mjolinor: Ok, will it also float when the switch is pressed in the diagram I posted?
[18:56] <Mjolinor> I think the Raspi may have its own pullups internally but I am not sure
[18:56] <Mjolinor> if it has then you could jsut add a switch to ground and it would work
[18:57] * Sonny_Jim (~pi@ Quit (Ping timeout: 240 seconds)
[18:57] <Mjolinor> it will not float in your circuit, you ahve a ground at hte bottom
[18:57] <Mjolinor> if it si a ground and not jsut a black random triangle :)

[18:58] <handuel> Mjolinor: It is indeed a ground :D I can't draw circuit diagrams. So how is no voltage down it because it has all been dropped over the resistor, different to no voltage as it is not connected to anything (A switch between it and the power is open)
[18:59] * redarrow (~redarrow@unaffiliated/redarrow) Quit (Ping timeout: 264 seconds)
[18:59] <Mjolinor> if it is a theoretical circuit then when the switch is open you have no current flow through the resistor
[19:00] <Mjolinor> 0 current, fixed resistance there fore no voltage drop across the resistor << ohms law
[19:00] <Mjolinor> when the switch is pressed you have current flow thorugh the resistor to ground, 3.3 volts dropped across the resistor << ohms law again
[19:01] <Mjolinor> in practise there will be slightly less than 3.3 volts at the bottom of the resistor when the switch is open due to internal loads on the circuit you are driving (presumably a Raspi input pin)
[19:02] * plugwash (~plugwash@ has joined #raspberrypi
[19:03] <handuel> I got that bit, however I'm confused about what this stuff about floating means. I'd think that when ~3.3v is dropped across the resistor there is nothing flowing to out. Which is the same as if I had an open switch between the +3.3v in and the out (No current flowing to out)
[19:03] <Mjolinor> no, it is not hte same
[19:04] <Mjolinor> you can test this by removing your circuit and measuring the voltage at "out"
[19:04] <Mjolinor> you will find a voltage there

[19:35] <Vibe> RPi works when hdmi connected, without doesn't
[19:36] <Sonny_Jim> Can you paste you config.txt somewhere so we can look at it?
[19:36] <Vibe> I have disabled all in config.txt just overclockage on
[19:36] <Sonny_Jim> And I take it you are trying to ping it or something to check whether it's booted?

[19:41] <pothibo> Hi there, I just came accross something. When creating the sdcard with DD it limits the partition to 2gb. My sdcard is 4gb, how can I use the whole space ?
[19:41] <Sonny_Jim> afaik an empty config.txt will boot no matter what
[19:41] <Sonny_Jim> pothibo: sudo raspi-config
[19:41] <pothibo> Sonny_Jim: Thank you!
[19:41] <Sonny_Jim> You may have a hooky SD card that pretends to be 4GB when it's 2GB however
[19:41] <Sonny_Jim> But try that first
[19:42] <Sonny_Jim> Raspian by default will only use 2GB of the card until you use raspi-config

[21:50] <plugwash> but the broadcasters perffer to use the bandwidth to cram more channels in
[21:50] <Sonny_Jim> Not the point plugwash

[21:57] <ShadowJK> Within each bundle, bandwidth is evenly split here
[21:58] <ShadowJK> but some bundles have fewer channels than other bundles :)
[21:59] <Sonny_Jim> oh god what have I done
[22:00] <krosis> in atsc they aren't evenly split.. I get about 12-15 Mbps on primary channels and 2-3 on secondary.
