[0:02] <sover> with cron and sometimes other triggers to drop the logs off of the edge
[0:02] <sover> though if we wanted them, we'd probably mount a samba share, maybe
[0:03] <plugwash> AIUI it's fairly easy to mod a system for readonly if you never want to update it again
[0:03] * arza (arza@unaffiliated/arza) Quit (Max SendQ exceeded)
[0:03] <plugwash> the trickier thing is modding a system for readonly in a way that still lets you enable read/write and update it from time to time
[0:03] <hotch> i must take these steps :) it's getting old setting up / imaging cards over and over

[0:15] <plugwash> can't say i've heard of rtlsdr either
[0:15] <sover> hotch, plugwash, it's not too bad setting /var as rw, and then pushing aptitude to do stuff there instead
[0:15] <DK-MODE> sover: Were you doing anything out of the ordinary to make the sd cards corrupt?
[0:15] <sover> you can use the remount configuration for apt.conf

[0:16] * KindOne- is now known as KindOne
[0:16] <sover> DK-MODE: yes, giving them to users that don't know how to use poweroff or reboot in cli linux
[0:16] <hotch> lol sover
[0:16] <DK-MODE> oh fair lol
[0:16] * plugwash is the guy who basically runs raspbian
[0:16] <sover> ah, very cool
[0:16] <sover> great project
[0:16] * user82 (~user82@unaffiliated/user82) Quit (Ping timeout: 264 seconds)
[0:16] <sover> thanks for your work, we use it heavily
[0:16] <DK-MODE> I've only ever had trouble overclocking... which I gave up with...
[0:16] <sover> we're actually using raspbian in production :)
[0:17] <DK-MODE> is there a knack to stop corruption when overclocking?
[0:17] <sover> I haven't found a relationship between corruption and clocking,
[0:18] <sover> but if I had to guess, power source
[0:18] <sover> What is the AC adapter spitting at the pi?
[0:18] * StathisA (~StathisA@athedsl-374068.home.otenet.gr) Quit ()
[0:18] <sover> We're able to get away with low overclock @ 700mAh
[0:19] <DK-MODE> I had various attempts with lots of power supplies right up to 2A
[0:19] <DK-MODE> this was with my first pi, I just attributed it with the hynix memory
[0:20] <DK-MODE> I gave that one away with xbmc
[0:20] <DK-MODE> I haven't tried with my 512mb model
[0:20] <DK-MODE> I use that as an samba 4 DC for coding against at home, so I just don't wanna break it
[0:21] <sover> domain controller?
[0:21] <sover> defcon?
[0:21] <sover> district of columbia
[0:21] <DK-MODE> domain controller ;)
[0:21] <DK-MODE> which, for a £30 device, blows me away
[0:22] <sover> ah, honestly hard shutdowns and the occasional absent-minded physical removal of a live root filesystem were the only culprits for ours
[0:23] * averagecase (~anon@dslb-088-078-145-172.pools.arcor-ip.net) Quit (Quit: Verlassend)
[0:23] <DK-MODE> good to know, I willhave to treat myself to another one for tinkering with again
[0:23] <sover> absolutely
[0:24] <sover> we're able to push out locked-down payment card industry compliant credit card entry terminals for < $100
[0:24] <sover> our departments need only provide keyboard, mouse, and monitor
[0:24] <DK-MODE> that's bonkers
[0:24] <DK-MODE> I've seen very little commercial application of the pi
[0:24] <sover> yeah, they were skeptical of the idea at first
[0:25] * piedpiper (~pi@CPE-110-147-155-240.nhl8.cht.bigpond.net.au) Quit (Ping timeout: 268 seconds)
[0:25] <sover> but when I told them the business implications (cost, of course) and gave them assurance that we could do it
[0:25] <sover> they told me to go for it
[0:25] <sover> Our next step is to see if one of these: http://www.amazon.com/StarTech-3-Feet-Cable-External-Drive/dp/B0047AALS0/
[0:25] <sover> will power our terminals straight from the powered USB ports on the back of our dell monitors
[0:28] <sover> Built a piece-of-shit hand-made one of those USB Y-cables with my pocket knife, plugged it in, and through a multimeter at it. It read 5v @ ~1A
[0:28] * millerii (~pi@e218.ip3.netikka.fi) Quit (Ping timeout: 268 seconds)
[0:28] <sover> *threw
[0:28] <DK-MODE> yeah you should get the current of both ports
[0:28] <DK-MODE> nice :D
[0:28] <DK-MODE> well the very best of luck to you, I am off to bed
[0:28] <sover> thank you, have a good night
[0:29] <DK-MODE> ttfn!

[0:41] <SpeedEvil> Sure.
[0:41] <SpeedEvil> in principle.
[0:41] <Sonny_Jim> plugwash: rtlsdr is the project that uses the USB TV tuners as cheap radio receivers
[0:41] <SpeedEvil> Oooh - that reminds me
[0:41] <Sonny_Jim> I use mine to pick up pager signals
[0:42] <plugwash> troulouliou_dev, the bealglebone black is available which costs slightly more than a Pi but is in the same ballpark and has an armv7 cpu
[0:43] <plugwash> afaict it's weaker in the graphics department though
[0:43] <troulouliou_dev> plugwash, just would like to have a real desktop usable pi
[0:43] <SpeedEvil> hmm
[0:43] <SpeedEvil> http://apps.charitycommission.gov.uk/Showcharity/RegisterOfCharities/CharityWithoutPartB.aspx?RegisteredCharityNumber=1129409&SubsidiaryNumber=0
[0:43] <Sonny_Jim> troulouliou_dev: Well, mine works just fine as a desktop
[0:44] <Sonny_Jim> But you probably want a mini-itx board
[0:44] <SpeedEvil> Or a NUC
[0:44] <plugwash> SpeedEvil, mmm, i've looked up the raspberry pi foundation on the charities commission site several times. Unfortunatley the information the charities commission provides seems to have a long time lag on it
[0:44] <SpeedEvil> yeah
[0:44] <troulouliou_dev> Sonny_Jim, no those are too expensive
[0:45] <Sonny_Jim> I've seen them for <£100
[0:45] <Sonny_Jim> That's a cheap desktop
[0:45] <troulouliou_dev> Sonny_Jim, onlythe board or all the computer ?
[0:45] <Sonny_Jim> CPU, RAM + board
[0:45] <plugwash> Speedevil specifically the 2012 results aren't out yet and the raspberry pi foundation was tiny in 2011
[0:45] <SpeedEvil> plugwash: yeah
[0:49] <SpeedEvil> plugwash: I think they have to submit 2012 results by Nov 1
[0:49] * _BigWings_ (~Thunderbi@modemcable055.111-22-96.mc.videotron.ca) Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)

[0:50] * hotch (~hotch@cpe-76-173-52-62.socal.res.rr.com) Quit (Quit: hotch)
[0:50] <SpeedEvil> As I read the rules as well - they don't have to submit much until they exceed 250K turnover
[0:51] <plugwash> True but i'm pretty sure they have
[0:51] * hotch (~hotch@cpe-76-173-52-62.socal.res.rr.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:52] <plugwash> Heck even the "initial 10K" which the foundation handled directly would account for most of that turnover
[0:52] <plugwash> possiblly all of it
[0:53] <plugwash> and then there is the income from farnell/rs on top, I really can't see how they could be below £250K for 2012
[0:54] <SpeedEvil> possibly - depends how it was handled.
[0:55] <SpeedEvil> I really want to know what they're doing. i mean - sure - a camera board - great.
[0:55] <SpeedEvil> that's not however going to cost serious money.
[0:56] * millerii (~pi@e218.ip3.netikka.fi) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:56] <plugwash> well the initial 10K would have presumablly meant a lot of turnover but little "profit"
[0:56] <SpeedEvil> Oh - i agree
[0:56] <SpeedEvil> I'm talking more here of 2013 than 2012
[0:57] <plugwash> Yeah, we know they have hired some staff, hiring staff does cost "serious money"
[0:57] <SpeedEvil> quite.
[0:57] <SpeedEvil> Depending on where they're hired from.

[1:55] <Sonny_Jim> Just spent the last 2 days waiting for MESS to finish compiling
[1:55] * teepee (~teepee@p50846FE5.dip0.t-ipconnect.de) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:55] <Sonny_Jim> Then someone in #messdev pointed out to me that the latest version has problems with BBC B emulation
[1:55] <Sonny_Jim> Erk
[1:56] <Phosie> ouch
[1:56] <Sonny_Jim> That was the whole reason I started, oh well
[1:56] <Sonny_Jim> At least I get like 400 other systems to play with
[1:56] <Sonny_Jim> btw BBC B emulation with advancemess is pretty good
[1:56] * Midnigh2ker (~Toker@unaffiliated/midnightoker) Quit (Ping timeout: 268 seconds)
[1:56] <Sonny_Jim> ~20fps on a 900MHz Pi, certainly better than BeebEm
[1:56] <Sonny_Jim> That was someting like 0.4fps
[1:58] <rbenv> Sonny_Jim, have you compiled _on_ raspberry pi?
[1:58] <Sonny_Jim> This is what I am doing
[1:58] <Sonny_Jim> Silly really, but I have time
[1:58] <Sonny_Jim> It's the only Linux box I have around atm
[1:59] <rbenv> holy shit, I thought that only me was so silly
[1:59] <Sonny_Jim> oh no, this isn't the first time
[1:59] <rbenv> I've compiled GTK3, wayland, weston and all of its dependencies
[1:59] <Sonny_Jim> I compiled gnu-radio on the Pi
[1:59] <Sonny_Jim> Oh but yours tops mine, kudos
[1:59] <rbenv> lol
[1:59] <Sonny_Jim> What was that, 4 days?
[1:59] * espiral (~maze@unaffiliated/espiral) Quit (Ping timeout: 256 seconds)
[2:00] <rbenv> what consumed most of my time was finding the dependencies
[2:00] <Sonny_Jim> yeah, MESS has stopped a few times with problems with compiler optimisations and running out of memory
[2:00] <rbenv> setting the right prefix, tuning up the makefile
[2:00] <Sonny_Jim> Right now I think I have about 1GB of swap
[2:00] <rbenv> about a week
[2:00] <Sonny_Jim> lol
[2:00] <Sonny_Jim> Good on ya
[2:01] <rbenv> ___on my work___
[2:01] <rbenv> lol
[2:01] <Sonny_Jim> I bet you used to run Gentoo as well?
[2:01] <rbenv> Not really, I'm a Debian guy
[2:01] <rbenv> OS X too
[2:01] <Sonny_Jim> ah
[2:01] <Sonny_Jim> You'd love Gentoo :-p
[2:02] <rbenv> I'm in my comfort zone with APT
[2:02] <rbenv> I like to know the name of packages
[2:02] <sney> gentoo can be pretty cool for weird hardware
[2:02] <rbenv> I've tried Arch on Pi
[2:03] <rbenv> it's pretty awesome, blazing fast
[2:03] <Sonny_Jim> it's great if you setup distcc and use that to compile for old laptops
[2:03] <Sonny_Jim> Squeeze every last drop out of them
[2:03] <Phosie> Arch is great on the pi.
[2:03] <rbenv> but I don't like that packaging snafu on Arch
[2:03] <sney> I did a stage 1 on a sparcstation 20 about 8 years ago, so I know what I would be in for doing something similar on a pi
[2:03] <sney> I stick with debian for x86 though
[2:04] <Sonny_Jim> Someone should do Linux From Scratch for the Pi
[2:05] <rbenv> sure, I would like to
[2:05] <rbenv> and I will have to]
[2:05] <rbenv> my company is using Pi's on products
[2:05] <Sonny_Jim> You could make a nice tiny OS with that and busybox
[2:05] <Sonny_Jim> oh yeah
[2:05] <rbenv> we dont use X server
[2:05] <Sonny_Jim> Was it you I was chatting to about the OpenGL implementation
[2:05] <rbenv> X's not welcome in embedded
[2:06] <rbenv> no, I'm new here (again)
[2:06] <rbenv> (on freenode)
[2:06] <Sonny_Jim> Honestly, I think Pi is great for messing around, but I would use something else if it was for work
[2:06] <Sonny_Jim> Stability doesn't seem to be it's strong point, at least for me
[2:06] <rbenv> Pi is POWERFUL
[2:06] <Sonny_Jim> err
[2:06] <rbenv> Dispman is fucking awesome
[2:06] <Sonny_Jim> bangs per buck, yeah it's ok
[2:07] <rbenv> I forget saying that I live in Brazil
[2:07] <rbenv> it's really expensive develop anything from scratch
[2:07] <Sonny_Jim> Oh no
[2:07] <Phosie> rbenv: language...
[2:07] <Sonny_Jim> I meant like mini-itx, beagleboard etcs
[2:07] <sney> by the way, there is a swearing rule in here, so anyone who has been saying naughty words might get kicked in like 15 minutes when one of the ops notices
[2:08] <Sonny_Jim> yeah, no warnings either
[2:08] <sney> just so there's no surprise
[2:08] <Phosie> Ninja'd
[2:08] <Sonny_Jim> So erm,
[2:08] <Sonny_Jim> This is your warning?
[2:08] <sney> (they should really get a bot for that)
[2:08] <rbenv> Phosie, sorry for dirty words lol
[2:08] <Phosie> sney: Agreed.
[2:08] <sney> run it on a pi so it's topical

[2:08] <Sonny_Jim> If you want to get on Hackaday, run it on a Pi
[2:09] <Sonny_Jim> I've managed to get on there twice
[2:09] <rbenv> beagleboard is nice
[2:09] <rbenv> I've worked with AT92SAMG20 before
[2:09] <rbenv> its a nice processor, but lacks video processor
[2:13] * liar (~liar@ Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[2:13] <Phosie> It's been over a year and I still cant get over how small the pi is
[2:14] <rbenv> it's really small, the components was cleverly chosen
[2:14] <Sonny_Jim> Well, apart from the polyfuse on the USB....
[2:15] <rbenv> we use Pi on industrial level using external powered devices

[2:17] <rbenv> we actually have a USB to 4 USART chip on a solution
[2:18] <plugwash> The Pi really isn't that small

[2:20] <plugwash> I mean yes it's small by PC standards but you can get arm linux boards that make it look massive. Admittedly their pricetags make them a whole lot less attractive :/
[2:20] <rbenv> plugwash, it's small taking into account all the connectors, a HUGE sdcard slot
[2:21] <rbenv> wandboard is such a interesting board
[2:21] <rbenv> but it's pricey
[2:22] <plugwash> Actually that brings us to the other problem with the Pi from an "embedding" point of view. The connectors chosen make the effective size of the Pi much larger than the size of the raw board if you want to put the Pi and everything plugged into it inside an enclosure
[2:22] * plugwash thought the wandboard was cheap for what you get
[2:23] <plugwash> The wandboard quad is like half the price of a nitrogen6x

[2:33] <rbenv> the cheapest one
[2:33] <plugwash> hmm, what attracted you to it?
[2:34] <rbenv> Actually having a gigabit lan
[2:35] <rbenv> HDMI
[2:35] <rbenv> so I can stream HD videos
[2:35] <plugwash> be aware that the gigabit ethernet on the IMX6 can't actually handle full gigabit throughput :/
[2:35] <plugwash> though it can do about half a gigabit iirc
[2:36] <rbenv> I need to stream something like 6 720p videos
[2:37] <rbenv> layout them on a grid
[2:37] <rbenv> and maybe on future, write to a SATA disk
[2:38] <plugwash> Are you aware that only the quad model has a functioning SATA port?
[2:38] <rbenv> yep
[2:38] <rbenv> but quad is too expensive actually
[2:39] <rbenv> 1 USD = 2,5 BRL

[9:06] <ShiftPlusOne> depends on the python app
[9:06] <ShiftPlusOne> what is it actually doing?
[9:07] <MordFustang> Its a digital sigange player (screenly), I'm writing some article and want to take screenshot from it
[9:08] <ShiftPlusOne> Looks like it's using the GPU.
[9:08] <ShiftPlusOne> (trying to confirm)
[9:09] * Turingi (~devon@unaffiliated/devon-hillard/x-7250961) has joined #raspberrypi
[9:09] <ShiftPlusOne> yeah, it's using omxplayer. Can't take a screenshot.
[9:09] <psychiatronics> does $ gnome-screenshot work?
[9:10] <ShiftPlusOne> actually, look slike it's using 'feh' for images. =/
[9:10] <ShiftPlusOne> are you sure X11 isn't running?
[9:10] <MordFustang> I don't want to take picture from omxplayer, it's some regular html page

[9:16] <ShiftPlusOne> I can definitely see X running there.
[9:17] <ShiftPlusOne> what are you using to take the screenshot?
[9:17] <MordFustang> scrot
[9:17] <ShiftPlusOne> unfortunate name
[9:18] * Gethiox (~gethiox@host-2-121.24.net.pl) has joined #raspberrypi
[9:18] <ShiftPlusOne> you may have to set the right DISPLAY variable
[9:18] <ShiftPlusOne> might look like 'DISPLAY=:0 scrot...'
[9:19] <ShiftPlusOne> But yeah, screenly uses feh for images, omxplayer for video and uzbl as the browser and definitely runs on top of X.
[9:19] <MordFustang> yes I want to take picture from browser
[9:20] <ShiftPlusOne> scrot should work just fine if used right

[13:10] <garyserj> is RCA always composite video?
[13:10] <steve_rox> err i think so
[13:10] <steve_rox> not sure
[13:10] <gordonDrogon> garyserj, yes.
[13:11] <gordonDrogon> RCA is just a trade name anyway, but it's turned into one of those generic terms.
[13:11] <ShiftPlusOne> I was under the impression RCA is the connector type and composite is how the video is encoded
[13:11] <garyserj> so can you put s-video through RCA?
[13:11] <gordonDrogon> no.
[13:12] <gordonDrogon> the physical connectors are often called phono plugs/sockets here (uk)
[13:12] <steve_rox> thought i saw a adapter so you could shove s vid thu composite once
[13:12] <Firehopper> rca could be audio or video
[13:12] <garyserj> what are the general standard types of video that can go through RCA?
[13:12] <Firehopper> or what ever you want really :)
[13:12] <garyserj> well, the red one, video.
[13:12] <Firehopper> composit or component
[13:12] <garyserj> i mean, yellow one.
[13:12] <Firehopper> composit is usually yellow..
[13:12] <Firehopper> component is red/blue/green
[13:13] <ShiftPlusOne> Not that it's relevant, but you can get composite from s-video with a filter, can't you?
[13:13] <gordonDrogon> s-video is separate channels for intensity and colour.
[13:13] <gordonDrogon> copmpsite is, as its name suggest all signals bundled into one.
[13:13] <gordonDrogon> you can convert one to the other, but it needs some circuitry.
[13:14] <garyserj> can the raspberry pi send component video out the RCA?
[13:14] <gordonDrogon> the other common one is split red, green & blue - sometimes with the sync. signals separated out too - VGA is like that.
[13:14] <Firehopper> luminice and crominance
[13:14] <garyserj> naturally, before conversion
[13:14] <ShiftPlusOne> garyserj, that's the only thing the pi can sent out the phono jack.
[13:14] <ShiftPlusOne> *send
[13:15] <gordonDrogon> indeed - the phono/rca jack is for composite video only.
[13:15] <garyserj> so if i managed to find a composite car lcd, and connect it to my rpi would it work?
[13:15] * KindOne (~KindOne@colchester-lug/silly-fool/donut) Quit (Read error: Operation timed out)
[13:15] <gordonDrogon> very probably.
[13:15] <garyserj> ah ok
[13:15] <Firehopper> video quality is usally (from lowest to highest) comosit, svideo, component, hdmi
[13:15] <steve_rox> they even turn self off into standby when no signal detected
[13:15] <gordonDrogon> and it won't be hard, as almost all of them are like that. If it has a (typical) Yellow connector then it's composite video.
[13:15] <Firehopper> vga and dvi are in there somewhere too
[13:15] <garyserj> but component one connected to rpi would probably not work?
[13:16] <Firehopper> correct
[13:16] <garyserj> and would be pointless 'cos rpi is composite
[13:16] <gordonDrogon> Firehopper, vga is analog component rgb+syncs. DVI is digital (but there is an analog specification for dvi connectors too)

[13:17] <gordonDrogon> garyserj, you could probably connect the green component to the Pi's output - it may work as some monitors will accept sync on the green input.

[13:17] <ShiftPlusOne> Is it a black and white tv? >.>
[13:17] <gordonDrogon> steve_rox, you may have the Pi set to ntsc & using a PAL TV or vice versa.
[13:17] <steve_rox> ah maybe thats it
[13:17] <steve_rox> on my other tv its colored fine
[13:17] <garyserj> <gordonDrogon> they're composite video input though, so the resolution is low. <-- but isn't the resolution always going to be low 'cos the rpi itself is composite

[13:18] <steve_rox> btw i hear if you set refresh rate too high or res or something in the car composite lcd it can kill it
[13:18] <gordonDrogon> garyserj, the Pi can output full 1080p HD - that's 1920x1080 via the HDMI. Internally it can handle that, but for the composite , it's limited to 720i max. (AIUI)
[13:18] <ShiftPlusOne> garyserj, normally, you'd use hdmi. But yes, if you're going to use composite instead, prepare for sore eyes if you're going to be using it a lot.
[13:18] * KindOne (~KindOne@colchester-lug/silly-fool/donut) has joined #raspberrypi
[13:18] <gordonDrogon> highly unlikely to kill a modern LCD with the wrong sync. frequency, etc.

[13:20] <gordonDrogon> garyserj, depends on your point of vie. RCA (or composite video) "just works", and it was the bleeding edge 20-30 years ago.

[13:23] <garyserj> is RCA-component 20-30 years old and predecessor to VGA?
[13:23] <BCMM> what are the requirements for booting the raspberry pi? can i just fat32 format an SD card and drop the bootfiles on to it, or is there some fancy alignment needed?
[13:23] <BCMM> (assume i'm dealing with the root partition via an initramfs)
[13:23] <gordonDrogon> BCMM, that's more or less it.
[13:23] <steve_rox> some custom lcd driver board thingy
[13:23] <Firehopper> mda, herculese, cga, ega, vga, svga, xga and so on :)
[13:23] <ShiftPlusOne> BCMM, afaik, it reads the first partition which needs to be fat32.
[13:24] <BCMM> ShiftPlusOne: yeah, but does it find it through the partition table or expect it to be at a given alignment?
[13:24] <Firehopper> bascily use the windows imagefilewriter thingy
[13:24] <ShiftPlusOne> I can't say with 100% certainty, but I am going to say it looks at the partition table
[13:24] <Firehopper> or DD in linux
[13:24] <garyserj> (i.e. i know RCA composite is 20-30 years old.. but is RCA component also?)
[13:24] <BCMM> gordonDrogon: could i tell somebody to format a card fat32 with windows and extract a .zip to the card, and expect the pi to boot that?
[13:25] <Firehopper> it reads the partitiion table and the fat :)
[13:25] <Jusii> no alignment needed, just first partition
[13:25] <Jusii> BCMM: yes
[13:25] <ShiftPlusOne> BCMM, definitely. That's how NOOBS works.
[13:25] <BCMM> cool

[13:30] <BCMM> sorry, that was intended as a question, rather than a statement

[13:32] <BCMM> gordonDrogon: i didn't mean "fun" sarcasticly (as in "very hard") - it's actually fun stripping down the OS for an actual reason, as opposed to doing it for dubious performance gains
[13:32] <gordonDrogon> sure - but it's very do-able.
[13:32] <garyserj> How can I tell whether there's a danger using a VGA-HDMI adaptor to plug a VGA screen into my RPI?

[13:46] <ShiftPlusOne> depends on the recipes you use, I suppose. There is no reason you shouldn't be able to build something as light as possible using yocto.
[13:46] <BCMM> (predefined by saving playlists to the fat32)
[13:47] <BCMM> the idea is that even a windows user can set it up for their network and preferred stations
[13:47] <BCMM> ShiftPlusOne: yeah, all i have to do now that it works is find out how much i can remove without breaking it :)

[13:51] <ShiftPlusOne> BCMM, if I recall correctly, gordon's method is to just copy the files from a debian system. You can take the files you know you need and then check what they are linked against to get the rest. Hifi's method seems to be to download .deb files and extract what's necessary from there, which also works quite well (check his raspbian installer, it's pretty tiny). https://github.com/hifi/raspbian-u
[13:51] <ShiftPlusOne> a-netinst/blob/master/build.sh
[13:52] <ShiftPlusOne> and yeah you can boot without config.txt

[13:57] * dreamon (~dreamon@unaffiliated/dreamon) Quit (Ping timeout: 264 seconds)
[13:57] <BCMM> hifi: am i right in saying that that basically pulls the basics (like libc) from raspbian packages, and makes an initramfs with them?
[13:57] <hifi> BCMM: eyes
[13:57] <hifi> yes*
[13:58] <BCMM> hifi: how do you then go about building extra packages that work with it? just build on raspbian?
[13:58] <hifi> BCMM: it's an installer, it doesn't do anything else than install raspbian, so it's used only for that special purpose
[13:58] <BCMM> hifi: fair enough
[13:59] <hifi> so no, I don't usually add packages/binaries and if I do I need to do some trial and error to get the dependencies working
[13:59] * g_r_eek (~g_r_eek@ppp-94-69-39-121.home.otenet.gr) has left #raspberrypi
[13:59] <hifi> I wouldn't recommend that method for anything else than special purposes or unless you just want to avoid rebuilding anything
[14:00] <hifi> like I did, I didn't like recompiling everything, kept it a bit more simple that way
[14:00] <hifi> but as it's fairly simple at what it does it's more than enough

[14:05] <BCMM> hifi: how small is the finished image?
[14:05] <hifi> depends on the default utilities you preselect
[14:05] <BCMM> nm, i read the github more carefully. 5mb is pretty coold
[14:05] <hifi> oh, you mean the installer image?
[14:05] <BCMM> (hifi: i meant the installer image, not the finished install)
[14:05] <hifi> right
[14:05] <BCMM> s/coold/cool/ (why cna't i type right now?)
[14:06] <hifi> 5MB is xz compressed though, if your target audience is windows users then zipping is better

[14:07] <hifi> your project, I don't know, might work with the same method as creating an updated image is just re-running the "build system" that pulls the latest packages and does the magic
[14:08] * cumana (~koomahnah@unaffiliated/cumana) Quit (Quit: WeeChat 0.4.0)
[14:09] <hifi> but it's fairly manual process to create the build scripts and a lot of trial and error, might not be the ideal system for project that requires more than a handful of packages
[14:10] * cumana (~koomahnah@unaffiliated/cumana) has joined #raspberrypi
[14:10] <hifi> what you could do though, if you'd like to use a full raspbian install, is to pre-package the root filesystem which would be dd'd by the initramfs to the SD card on first boot
[14:11] <BCMM> hifi: thanks, but my aim is a larger initramfs
[14:11] <hifi> then you could pretty much do, say, raspbian-ua-netinst, install your required packages and do some pre-configuration, minimize the rootfs and then dd it out and compress
[14:11] <BCMM> with mpd, wpa_supplicant, etc.
[14:11] <hifi> then a minimal initramfs could just write it back on first boot
[14:11] <hifi> and a windows user can still just format as fat32 and copy files in
[14:11] <BCMM> hifi: by the way, you don't happen to know what the optimal initramfs compression is on the pi do you?
[14:12] <hifi> the kernel doesn't support anything else than gzip by default
[14:12] <BCMM> hifi: i'm building a custom kernel
[14:12] <BCMM> i mean, storage is slow, but so is cpu, so i'm assuming recieved wisdom about the fastest way to boot an initramfs goes out the window
[14:12] <hifi> if you're worried about speed, don't compress or gzip
[14:13] <hifi> lzop is very fast though
[14:13] <BCMM> hifi: yeah, i was wondering whether the storage was slow enough to make lzop faster than uncompressed...
[14:13] <hifi> trial and error I'd say
[14:13] <hifi> and it depends on the actual SD card too, how fast it can be read
[14:13] <BCMM> yeah, that was the plan. just asked in case you'd already done it :)
[14:14] * suehle (~rsuehle@fedora/suehle) Quit (Read error: Operation timed out)
[14:14] <hifi> timing all three, gzip, xz and lzop would be interesting
[14:14] * cumana (~koomahnah@unaffiliated/cumana) Quit (Client Quit)
[14:14] <hifi> why are you building a custom kernel btw?
[14:15] <BCMM> hifi: isnt' xz pretty much guaranteed to be too slow to be useful unless you're actually pushing the kernel over the network?
[14:15] <BCMM> hifi: at the moment, mainly because i'm building the initramfs in to the kernel
[14:15] <hifi> xz decompression isn't that expensive
[14:16] <BCMM> hifi: but i'm also planning to eliminate drivers that i won't be using
[14:16] <BCMM> both for image size, and because some of them actually initialise
[14:16] <BCMM> i mean, taking up time at boot. something like the i2c or spi driver iirc
[14:17] <hifi> I doubt it makes any meaningful difference
[14:18] <hifi> even with verbose logging on it doesn't take even a second for the raspbian kernel to boot
[14:18] <BCMM> hifi: very likely. most of my time is spent loading hte kernel, but that's probably because i'm using stupid compression
[14:18] <hifi> IIRC, haven't booted it for a while
[14:18] <BCMM> (which is because i've run out of space in my raspbian boot partition and the new SD card hasn't arrived yet)

[16:38] <MrVector> I tried both, the 0x7E... just seems to be full of 0's.

[16:43] <MrVector> One of the code examples I'm looking at is http://www.johncronin.org.uk/svn/rpi-boot/emmc.c , before setting up the host, he power cycles the emmc, is this necessary and if so how does he know!? :)
[16:43] <MrVector> (in sd_card_init())
[16:44] <mgottschlag> I doubt it is necessary, as long as you know that everything is in a defined state
[16:44] * mickn (~mickn@unaffiliated/mickn) Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[16:44] <mgottschlag> but most drivers reset everything so that the complete device state is known, no matter what other driver used the device before
[16:44] <mgottschlag> in your case, the firmware has used EMMC, so you might have some preinitialized parts
[16:45] <MrVector> Right, so in that case, I should be able to read version information and such?
[16:46] <ParkerR> MrVector, What are you working on exactly? Haven't heard of any eMMC projects for the Pi.

[16:53] <phatina> hi, I start my RPi and everything it does is following: red led is on, no graphical output present (via cinch/hdmi), any advice how to bring RPi to life?
[16:53] <PhotoJim> I'm sure it can be done, but if your machine isn't working right it will make debugging it a real challenge :)
[16:54] <ShiftPlusOne> assuming you installed everything alright and your power supply is ok, the sd card is incompatible.
[16:54] <ShiftPlusOne> (phatina)
[16:55] <vlt> PhotoJim: This is for production use.
[16:55] <maxinux> phatina: power supply or sd card
[16:55] <ShiftPlusOne> maxinux, (or user error)
[16:55] <phatina> ShiftPlusOne: hmm, it used to work with that sd card
[16:56] <PhotoJim> vlt: I've seen lots of production machines that showed bootup info. assuming you have the machine on a UPS the boot-up will rarely be seen.
[16:56] <ShiftPlusOne> phatina, sd cards are like that
[16:56] <vlt> After `clear` in rc.local there's still a blinking cursor. How can I get rid of this? Any command I could run after clear that just is a black screen?
[16:56] <phatina> ShiftPlusOne: fine, I am able to see flashed content properly in Fedora box, but RPi does not boot it, so it is trashed for the board?
[16:57] <PhotoJim> phatina: bad card, or corrupted. you could try reimaging from your backup (hopefully you have one). or try a new card. they are dirt cheap.
[16:57] <phatina> ShiftPlusOne: another question: should RPi output at least boot messages, that it can not find root partition?
[16:57] <mgottschlag> phatina: did you do any update before it stopped working?
[16:57] <ShiftPlusOne> phatina, it happens, but I can't say with 100% certainty that this is the issue here.
[16:57] <mgottschlag> if it doesn't show anything and no LED lights up, then the firmware might not be found
[16:57] <phatina> mgottschlag: I dd-ed new Arch imiage
[16:57] <ShiftPlusOne> phatina, not boot messages. The green led will glow dimly (may be hard to see next to the pwr led)
[16:57] <gordonDrogon> phatina, also make sure the monitor/tv is turned on before the Pi. Pi will default to composite video output if it does not think the HDMI device is active.
[16:58] <phatina> ShiftPlusOne: what I remember, when RPi arrived for the first time, I got bad sd-card (micro sd with adaptor), I got message with error saying, there is no root partition
[16:58] <phatina> ShiftPlusOne: now I can not see any graphical output :(
[16:58] <phatina> ShiftPlusOne: yes, green led is on (very low shining) and bright red too
[16:58] <mgottschlag> phatina: it totally depends on which part of the system got corrupted
[16:58] <ShiftPlusOne> phatina, different type of error. In that case the firmware was found and it chocked when booting linux. In this case it's not finding the firmware.
[16:59] <ShiftPlusOne> *choked
[16:59] <phatina> ShiftPlusOne: any advice for me, how to fix that?

Reinsert the card a few times, hold it down for better contact when turning the pi on and so on... but I don't think any of that will help

[17:32] <Sonny_Jim> I'm looking at using a circuit similar to this:
[17:32] <Sonny_Jim> http://www.susa.net/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/Relay-Sample.png
[17:32] <Sonny_Jim> Obviously without the relay
[17:32] <gordonDrogon> Sonny_Jim, shouldn't have a problem.
[17:32] <Sonny_Jim> Cool, thanks
[17:33] <sc00ty> Unfortunately, it's out of stock with no ETA and requires soldering. I am looking for something all ready to go :/
[17:33] <SpeedEvil> gordonDrogon: you can at surprisingly lower than 10khz
[17:33] <gordonDrogon> sc00ty, the standard text LDCs will work fine - just need some wiring

[17:34] <sc00ty> gordonDrogon: I've found a few but the process requires a bunch if wires and breadboards. I'm trying to keep the size minimal
[17:34] <Sonny_Jim> I know the lamp matrixes in pinball tables rely on the fact that incandecent bulbs take a while to go 'off', so they don't pulse them that quickly, hence you get a lot of flicker on them. They do use a 2Mhz 6809 so they tend to try and keep all the cycles for other things
[17:34] <gordonDrogon> sc00ty, http://wiringpi.com/dev-lib/lcd-library/ yup - you need the bradboard - unless you use the Adafruit one, but then you'll still need to solder it all together.
[17:35] * Boydy (~Boydy@unaffiliated/boydy) has joined #raspberrypi
[17:35] <sc00ty> yea now I will need to get a soldering iron and stuff too
[17:36] <gordonDrogon> we really can't see flicker much above 130Hz, but when you introduce vibration - like a car rear view mirror things change..
[17:36] <Sonny_Jim> I suppose I could simulate the circuit with something first to double/triple check
[17:36] <sc00ty> Probably just going to abandon the idea
[17:36] <gordonDrogon> designing stuff like games tables, etc. is always a compromise between complexity and cost - there are hardware PWM drivers for example.
[17:37] <ShiftPlusOne> What about just an LCD and some jumper cables? as simple as it gets
[17:37] <SpeedEvil> gordonDrogon: or in bright lights where you can see the afterimage during a saccade
[17:37] <gordonDrogon> but they add to the cost. Doing PWM in software on an 8-bit micro is trivial, but will use a fraction of a percent of the overall cpu usage.
[17:37] <gordonDrogon> SpeedEvil, trick of the light ;-)
[17:38] <Sonny_Jim> In theory I could drive a pretty hefty solenoid with that TIP122
[17:38] <gordonDrogon> what are you looking at driving?
[17:38] <SpeedEvil> gordonDrogon: fun hack.

[17:39] <gordonDrogon> Sonny_Jim, can't you drive the LEDs directly?
[17:39] <SpeedEvil> gordonDrogon: So that 0x80 PWM of an 8 bit pwm is not 128 periods on, 128 off. But 1 on 1 off.
[17:40] * suehle (rsuehle@fedora/suehle) has joined #raspberrypi
[17:40] <Sonny_Jim> gordonDrogon: These are setup for 12V at the moment
[17:40] <SpeedEvil> gordonDrogon: MSB is LSB, and LSB is MSB - this lets reduce the flicker quite a lot
[17:40] <Sonny_Jim> And I have the parts lying around so it seemed like a fun weekend project
[17:40] <gordonDrogon> SpeedEvil, not sure what you're getting at - I do software PWM on the Pi - last time I did it on an 8-bit micro it was on a bbc micro - I don't recall the exact mechanism, but I had a 16-bit counter.
[17:41] <gordonDrogon> you can use a "balanced" output mode with PWM - which is what the Pi does (in hardware) by default - so rather than (say) 100 on's then 100 off's, it alternates them.
[17:41] <gordonDrogon> brb. cake in the oven to check.
[17:42] <Sonny_Jim> Am I right in thinking that the 1k resistor in that circuit I linked is to limit current draw?

[17:44] <SpeedEvil> gordonDrogon: If you're outputting in software - without the aid of a PWM unit - instead of doing the normal inc x, if x>y(LED(on) else LED(off) do inc x,if x>(bitreversed)y)... It means that instead of the most obvious bit - the MSB - having a frequency of 1/256th (say) the clock - it's 1/2. And the LSB is regulated to the 1/256 frewuency, where its flicker is lots less visible
[17:44] <gordonDrogon> Sonny_Jim, it limits the base/emitter current.
[17:45] <ShiftPlusOne> Sonny_Jim, it sets the base current, so you want it to be low, but keep the dc current gain in mind.

[19:05] <Sonny_Jim> Hmm
[19:05] <Sonny_Jim> so gpio write 7 1, should set P7 to output 1, correct?
[19:06] <gordonDrogon> yes
[19:06] <gordonDrogon> ,but make sure you use the right numbering scheme.
[19:06] <Sonny_Jim> Yeah, it gets a little confusing what with this retropie board
[19:06] <ShorTie> if it has been defined like that
[19:06] <Sonny_Jim> 2 different ways to connect it
[19:06] <gordonDrogon> http://wiringpi.com/pins/
[19:06] <gordonDrogon> there are 3 numbering schemes in-use.
[19:06] <Sonny_Jim> :-(
[19:06] <gordonDrogon> bcm_gpio, physical p1 pin numbers and wiringPi pin numbers.
[19:07] <Sonny_Jim> I think I want to use physical
[19:07] * Sonny_Jim investigates
[19:07] <gordonDrogon> wiringPi can handle all 3, so gpio mode 7 out is the same as gpio -g mode 4 out is the same as gpio -1 mode 7 out
[19:07] <gordonDrogon> it's a coincidence that wiringPi pin7 is the same as physical pin 7.
[19:07] <Sonny_Jim> I have a multimeter across what I think is P7 and GND
[19:08] <Sonny_Jim> Right now it's reading 1.3vdc
[19:08] <Sonny_Jim> using gpio doesn't seem to make any difference
[19:08] <gordonDrogon> that's probably set to input mode.
[19:08] <Sonny_Jim> ah ok
[19:08] <gordonDrogon> gpio -1 mode 7 out ; gpio -1 write 7 1
[19:09] <Sonny_Jim> Yeah still no dice, I think I need to double check the pinouts on this retropie thing
[19:10] <Sonny_Jim> And good ol' mode 7, isn't that teletext on a BBC B?
[19:10] <Sonny_Jim> :-)
[19:10] <gordonDrogon> http://wiringpi.com/pins/ do check that - make sure the board is the right way round. physical pin 2 is at outside corner.

[19:52] <Sonny_Jim> For example, pin 8 on the 74 toggles with gpio write 7 1/0
[19:52] <Sonny_Jim> Pin 9 just sits at 1.8v

[22:27] <nerdboy> Stellar: rtmp backend is the ffmpeg piece?
[22:27] <Stellar> it's nginx rtmp
[22:27] <Stellar> for me
[22:27] <Stellar> or could be crtmpserver
[22:28] <Stellar> currently i am adding --enable-avresample \ --enable-filters \ to my configure flags hopefully will fix it
[22:29] * dreamon (~dreamon@unaffiliated/dreamon) has joined #raspberrypi
[22:30] <nerdboy> hmm, my browser got a hit and asked to choose an application so i installed vlc
[22:30] <Stellar> nerdboy: from #ffmpeg people <durandal_1707> Stellar: filters can not work with copy
[22:30] <Stellar> darn it, i have trash my compile lol
[22:31] <Stellar> another 2 hours for ffmpeg compile, great...
[22:32] <nerdboy> if you need to build from source a lot you should try openembedded...
[22:34] <Stellar> is there even other peoples who already use it?, so far i saw lot's of using buildroot
[22:34] <Stellar> but no fancy proper buildd
[22:34] <nerdboy> i'm using meta-raspberrypi with poky master
[22:35] <nerdboy> builds a nice xorg desktop image in a few hours
[22:35] <nerdboy> depending on cores/ram...
[22:35] <nerdboy> a rebuild of ffmpeg and opkg install ffmpeg would take a few minutes

[22:37] <nerdboy> when i get a decent build box put together i'll add ffmpeg to the package feed
[22:37] <nerdboy> no, all the xorg stuff is in my fork
[22:37] <nerdboy> that one is bare-bones...

[22:40] <nerdboy> i've got an older version with a pi logo and a newer one without
[22:41] <Stellar> you meant in the nginx default page?

[23:01] <nerdboy> seeing if the gst-ffmpeg recipe builds...
[23:01] <nerdboy> Stellar: the main readme is decent enough to start building if you want
[23:02] <nerdboy> just clone three repos and init your build env and edit the local/bblayers.conf

[23:03] <nerdboy> very basic ones...
[23:03] <nerdboy> the xorg/openbox image is less than 600 MBs
[23:04] <nerdboy> and you can always kill the X init stuff...
[23:04] <nerdboy> i just use it as-is (ie, let it boot to the desktop) whether headless or not
[23:04] <Stellar> yup but just wanted more manageable devices
[23:05] <nerdboy> meaning?
[23:05] <nerdboy> wifi/bluetooth/etc?
[23:05] <Stellar> it's hard to debug if your libs folder filled up with thousands of lib files...
[23:05] <Stellar> because also i am not linux dev by day..
[23:05] <nerdboy> not that much installed really...
[23:06] <Stellar> about the predefined WINDOW_MANAGER ...

[23:08] <Stellar> because i couldn't see any other occurances..
[23:08] <nerdboy> are you looking at the rpi-xorg recipe?
[23:09] <nerdboy> you could always remove the xorg stuff and make your own recipe...
[23:09] <Stellar> hmm
[23:09] <nerdboy> add nginx and whatever you need

[23:13] * badass (~badass@unaffiliated/badass) has joined #raspberrypi
[23:13] <Stellar> so raspberrypi/firmware is not required?
[23:13] <nerdboy> there are firmware recipes
[23:14] <nerdboy> everything gets build into the image for that particular image recipe
[23:14] <nerdboy> *built even
[23:15] <nerdboy> several of the recipes pull direct from upstream git repos
[23:15] <Stellar> assuming you are using this on productions, how you manage to update your running systems?
[23:15] <nerdboy> package manager is opkg
[23:15] <Firehopper> http://www.flickr.com/photos/firehopper/sets/72157635427543068/ < motorized bike project
[23:15] <nerdboy> works like apt-get "lite"
[23:15] <nerdboy> sort of...
[23:15] <Stellar> aha!, so just run a simple httpd ?
[23:16] <nerdboy> the package feeds are defined in /etc/opkg, and yes, there's no special httpd config
[23:17] <nerdboy> just an alias pointing to the top of the package build tree
[23:17] <maxinux> Firehopper: your vista cruiser?:)
[23:17] <nerdboy> alternatively you could wget packages and install locally
