[0:59] <cbb2296> so port 8000 is blocked as my work. How can i access my arkOS?
[0:59] <cbb2296> actually the only open ports are 80 and 443
[1:00] * ruif13 (~ruif13@a79-168-203-125.cpe.netcabo.pt) Quit (Quit: ruifigueiredo.me)
[1:00] <sney> proxy
[1:00] <cbb2296> but all proxy ports are filtered too
[1:01] <clever> run a proxy on port 80
[1:01] <sney> there is no such thing as a "proxy port"
[1:01] <sney> exactly
[1:01] <cbb2296> clever clever
[1:01] * DataLinkDroid (~DataLinkD@ has joined #raspberrypi
[1:01] <clever> one of the many jobs a rpi can be used for!
[1:01] <melfy> dont forget 443
[1:01] <cbb2296> so can I run a proxy server on my pi
[1:01] <cbb2296> ah alright
[1:01] <melfy> can just vpn it
[1:02] * andrew91_ (~andrew918@ has joined #raspberrypi
[1:02] <uniqdom> +1 to vpn
[1:03] <cbb2296> so just install openvpn?
[1:03] <melfy> if single user can just install openvpnas
[1:03] <sney> install, configure, etc
[1:03] <melfy> does the basics for u
[1:04] <uniqdom> even a ssh -D tunnel will do the job
[1:04] <cbb2296> and when i set up port forwarding on my router what port would i forward
[1:04] <cbb2296> id obviously want 80 or 443 right? but how would that work
[1:04] <melfy> id say vpn/443
[1:05] <cbb2296> alright ill work on configuring that. How could i access that externally though?
[1:05] <melfy> openvpnas starts with port 943, you'd need to login & switch
[1:05] <cbb2296> or do i even need to forward ports
[1:05] <melfy> unless its in dmz u need to forward
[1:06] <cbb2296> wouldnt forwarding port 80 direct all http traffic through my router to my pi though?
[1:06] <cbb2296> networking is obviously not my strong suit
[1:07] <clever> set the pi ssh server to listen on port 443 also
[1:07] <clever> port forward 443 to the pi
[1:08] <cbb2296> alright ill try that right now
[1:08] <cbb2296> thanks
[1:08] <clever> then ssh publicip:443 -D 1234
[1:08] <clever> this will create a socks proxy at port 1234 on the localhost, which routes thru the pi
[1:08] * wiiguy (~fake@unaffiliated/wiiguy) Quit (Quit: I just broke my connection, but no worries, we can rebuild it. We have the technology.)
[1:08] <clever> vpn is overly complex if you just want a proxy
[1:09] <cbb2296> so then thats literally all I would have to do?
[1:09] <cbb2296> just forward my port and ssh?
[1:09] * odin_ (~Odin@2a01:348:261:32:20df:72d8:e066:f49e) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:09] <clever> yeah
[1:09] <clever> and figure out what your home public ip is
[1:09] <clever> and keep track of it changing on you
[1:10] <sney> put it on a no-ip service
[1:10] <clever> thats one solution
[1:10] <clever> some new routers can do that automaticaly
[1:10] <clever> "2013-11-04 20:10:17 bedroom temp: 23.00c(73.40f), kitchen: 23.56c(74.41f), living room: 23.06c(73.51f), outdoor: -1.81c(28.74f) VCC: over 4.5 volts portb: 00000000"
[1:10] <clever> ooo, chilly outside
[1:10] <[SLB]> i've also set up a vpn server on my pi http://www.slblabs.com/2012/10/12/rpi-vpn/
[1:10] <cbb2296> i know my public ip. Ill try this now. thanks guys!
[1:11] <[SLB]> not sure about your port limitations though
[1:11] * TomWij (~TomWij@gentoo/developer/tomwij) Quit (Ping timeout: 245 seconds)
[1:11] <clever> [SLB]: hmmm, havent seen that vpn type used before
[1:11] <clever> *reads*
[1:12] <clever> [SLB]: is it udp or tcp?
[1:12] <[SLB]> let me check on the router
[1:12] * kairu (~zye@mail.caffevita.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:12] * jhulten (~jhulten@ Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[1:13] <[SLB]> 1723 tcp
[1:13] <sney> udp wouldn't be much use for a vpn
[1:13] * jhulten (~jhulten@ has joined #raspberrypi
[1:13] <clever> running tcp over tcp is a sure fire way to ruin your latency
[1:13] * jhulten (~jhulten@ Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[1:13] * Geniack (~Geniack@unaffiliated/geniack) Quit (Disconnected by services)
[1:13] * Geniack_ (~Geniack@unaffiliated/geniack) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:14] <clever> the protocol is designed to slow things down with packet loss, so the outer most tcp (port 1723) will limit its traffic, but not cause any packet loss to the inner traffic
[1:16] <clever> so the inner tcp channel keeps trying to jam tons of data thru the shrinking pipe
[1:16] * jhulten (~jhulten@ has joined #raspberrypi
[1:16] <clever> and your latency goes thru the roof
[1:16] <[SLB]> actually it works by resending lost packets
[1:16] * Cykey (~CykeyFree@cykey.me) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:16] <Cykey> Hi
[1:16] <clever> [SLB]: the outer tcp layer will resend, and limit its bandwidth to reduce losses
[1:16] <clever> [SLB]: the inner tcp is unaware of those limits, and wont slow itself down
[1:16] <clever> resulting in a large queue of packets waiting to go out
[1:16] <Cykey> I would like to do long range communication between raspberry Pi's
[1:16] <Cykey> (like a few kilometers)
[1:16] <Cykey> what are some good transmitters/receivers out there? Also, what about the antennas?
[1:16] <cbb2296> i think ill just stick with ssh tunneling
[1:16] <clever> [SLB]: if you used udp for the vpn, packet loss means packet loss, and the tcp connections will resend and throttle properly
[1:16] <Firehopper> cykey, how much data how fast?
[1:16] * yofel (~quassel@ubuntu/member/yofel) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:16] <Firehopper> cause 2 miles is going to require specal antennas..
[1:16] <Firehopper> and prolly special tx/rx setups
[1:16] <Cykey> Firehopper: really just to send GPS coordinates (couple bytes); speed does not really matter
[1:16] <Firehopper> couple bytes how often..
[1:16] <[SLB]> yes i know, i didn't know it's possible to set up a vpn over udp
[1:17] <clever> Cykey: http://www.slblabs.com/2012/10/12/rpi-vpn/
[1:17] <Firehopper> and how real time?
[1:17] <clever> oops
[1:17] <Cykey> Firehopper: once every 5 seconds? haha
[1:17] <Firehopper> cause cell phones could do it via txt msgs or something
[1:17] <clever> Cykey: https://www.sparkfun.com/products/9099 6 mile range acording to the specs list
[1:17] <Cykey> clever: won't have internet
[1:17] * kairu (~zye@mail.caffevita.com) Quit (Ping timeout: 245 seconds)
[1:17] <clever> Cykey: that was the wrong link
[1:17] <Cykey> clever: ...yeah, I've considered xbees except they are expensive as f**k
[1:18] <clever> yeah, thats the bigest downside to them
[1:18] <Cykey> Firehopper: Hm, yeah, SMS could do except modems are quite expensive :(
[1:18] <clever> Cykey: as a plus, xbee are 3.3v, so they can mate with the pi without a level shifter
[1:18] <Cykey> oh yeah
[1:18] <Cykey> the Pi's GPIO runs at 3.3? (not 5v?)
[1:18] <clever> yeah, 3.3v only
[1:19] <Cykey> I'm getting confused between arduino and pi stuff haha
[1:19] <Firehopper> long range is going to cost a lot..
[1:19] <pksato> Cykey: if you is licenced ham, can use APRS network.
[1:19] <Firehopper> no getting around that
[1:19] <Firehopper> or yeah do it via ham radios.. but those are expensive as well..
[1:20] <Firehopper> actually you can get a handheld ham radio for $50
[1:20] <clever> Cykey: before you complain about the $39 modules being expensive, this one does 15 miles: https://www.sparkfun.com/products/9411
[1:20] <Firehopper> no idea what kind of range though
[1:20] <cbb2296> anyone have experience with very secure ftp daemon?
[1:20] <Firehopper> but anyway wireless at distance is pricey, either the tx's or the antennas..
[1:21] <Cykey> I think SMS is the best option at this point
[1:21] <sney> if you have ssh, just use sftp and don't bother with ftp
[1:21] <cbb2296> sounds good sney, thanks
[1:21] <pksato> old cellphone cam be used to send sms. but, sms dont have high cost?
[1:22] <Cykey> clever: hah $185...no thanks ;P
[1:22] <clever> cbb2296: i just use scp
[1:22] * jaytk (~jaytk@108-232-157-80.lightspeed.tukrga.sbcglobal.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:22] <clever> Cykey: yeah
[1:22] * jaytk (~jaytk@108-232-157-80.lightspeed.tukrga.sbcglobal.net) Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[1:22] <Cykey> regarding SMS modems, has anyone ever used one?
[1:23] <Firehopper> not me
[1:23] * rigid (~rigid@unaffiliated/rigid) Quit (Ping timeout: 245 seconds)
[1:23] <Firehopper> gsm modem or gprs modem
[1:24] <clever> ive heard that some older cellphones expose the AT command set over a docking port
[1:24] <pksato> use old cell phone. but compatible to network.
[1:24] * ech0s7 (~ech0s7@host205-158-dynamic.37-79-r.retail.telecomitalia.it) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:24] <clever> could maybe get a 20 year old junk phone that does that, but you may have trouble finding the pinout and a carrier that accepts it
[1:24] * TomWij (~TomWij@gentoo/developer/tomwij) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:24] <Cykey> lol that's kind of hacky heh
[1:25] <Cykey> Firehopper: not sure
[1:25] <pksato> some have direct access to modem.
[1:25] <clever> the old bag phone i have uses a db25 port for power and external mic
[1:25] <pksato> rs232 or usb.
[1:25] <clever> never checked to see if it had actual serial on it
[1:26] <pksato> gammu/wammu can be used to send sms.
[1:26] <clever> it was something like this, http://zagg-blog.s3.amazonaws.com/community/blog/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/bag-phone.jpg
[1:27] <pksato> http://wammu.eu/
[1:27] <Cykey> I could just use one of those 3G dongles
[1:27] <Cykey> and send my stuff over HTTP instead
[1:28] <clever> compare the monthly cost of a 3g dongle + upfront cost, to a single $39 cost for an xbee module, and no monthly fee
[1:28] <Firehopper> another method is to embed a rpi with a wifi dongle and sneak on someone's wifi signal :)
[1:28] <Cykey> Firehopper: at 3 kilometers above ground? yeah... ;)
[1:28] <Cykey> clever: actually, 2 xbees, no?
[1:28] <cbb2296> well don't they make those crazy big 2.4ghz antennae
[1:29] <Firehopper> doesnt the zigbee pro with 60mw power have a pretty long distance?
[1:29] <clever> Cykey: just one node and one base station?
[1:29] * hyperair (~hyperair@ubuntu/member/hyperair) Quit (Ping timeout: 240 seconds)
[1:30] <Cykey> I might go with this
[1:30] <Cykey> https://www.sparkfun.com/products/10138
[1:30] <Cykey> clever: mhm
[1:30] <clever> Cykey: ah, then you have 2 xbee modules vs a 3g module+monthly plane+something for the base station
[1:30] <clever> (phone tethered into a laptop?)
[1:30] <Cykey> what?
[1:30] <Cykey> ;P
[1:31] * smccarthy (~smccarthy@ Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[1:31] <clever> if you used a 3g usb stick, you would need a monthly plan to cover its data
[1:31] <pksato> for long range need more power, obove regulametation limits to use without licence.
[1:31] <clever> and you would need another 3g (or phone) at the base station, to receive the data
[1:31] <Firehopper> most 3g dongles are around $100 ish
[1:31] <clever> and that :P
[1:31] <clever> compare that to a pair of $39 xbee's
[1:31] <Firehopper> plans are 10-20 for 250 meg ish

[2:08] <ozzzy> just plug in your 60" plasma
[2:08] <melfy> that already works ;(
[2:09] <ozzzy> well.. then you know
[2:09] <sney> I think he was asking about the kickstarter one mentioned above
[2:09] <ozzzy> but you can buy little 7" and 9" hdmi displays
[2:09] <sney> which appears to be this http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/697708033/hdmipi-affordable-9-high-def-screen-for-the-raspbe
[2:10] * oldtopman (~oldtopman@unaffiliated/oldtopman) has joined #raspberrypi
[2:10] <rikkib> What is wrong with a normal lcd display and if need be a hdmi to dvi-d cable
[2:11] <ozzzy> kickstarter is just another way to separate fools from their money
[2:11] <rikkib> Good spotting
[2:12] <pksato> all parts to make a hdmi display are on market, just need to some one make a kit.

[3:52] <RiXtEr> Hey guys I have wired up a simple switch and put a 1.7k ohm (I think) resistor between it and the pi. The switch sits inside of the cup of my door lock and I am wanting it to read if the door is locked or not. This works fine, except, when I turn my lights on it reads as the switch status has changed. Here is my current code http://paste.ubuntu.com/6362404/ even with that bouncetime it still reads the light power as well... any suggestions?
[3:52] <clever> at a guess, id say your signal wire isnt shielded
[3:53] <RiXtEr> clever, indeed... its regular cat5e (unsheilded)
[3:53] <RiXtEr> is there anyway (other than shielding it) to compensate for the problem?
[3:53] * pksato (~PEBKAC@unaffiliated/pksato) Quit (Quit: Problem Exists Between Keyboard And Chair)
[3:54] <piney> is that resistor in series?
[3:54] <shiftplusone> does that automatically enable the pullup resistor?
[3:54] <RiXtEr> piney, yes.
[3:54] <clever> use a transistor to detect the signal and switch in a higher voltage
[3:54] <piney> sounds to me like you need a pull-up resistor
[3:54] <clever> then use another transistor at the pi end to step it back down
[3:54] <shiftplusone> there's an internal one, but it needs to be enabled... I can't tell if that code does that.
[3:54] * piney reads the code
[3:54] <clever> or stonger pullup/down resistors
[3:54] <clever> if the lights are causing it, its not likely to be a source issue
[3:55] <RiXtEr> shiftplusone, I don't have it using the pullup resistor
[3:55] <shiftplusone> RiXtEr, enable the pullup
[3:55] <RiXtEr> shiftplusone, I thought that was only for certain gpio's

[3:55] * arza (arza@unaffiliated/arza) has joined #raspberrypi
[3:55] <shiftplusone> RiXtEr, when the switch is open, you have a floating input, so a little bit of interference causes the signal to change.

[3:57] <piney> you need a resistor to 3v3 (pullup) or ground (pull down) to cause it to read one state all the time except when the button is pressed
[3:57] <shiftplusone> RiXtEr, if you use this tutorial, http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/projects/raspberrypi/tutorials/robot/buttons_and_switches/, their circuit has an external pull up, so they don't enable it.
[3:57] <RiXtEr> reading now.
[3:57] <shiftplusone> don't, it doesn't work for you.
[3:58] <RiXtEr> piney, so if I run the resistor between the hot and the ground would that help?
[3:58] <clever> RiXtEr: first, what is your switch connected to?
[3:58] <clever> gpio and what?
[3:58] <RiXtEr> clever, gpio 17 and ground.
[3:58] <shiftplusone> RiXtEr, https://code.google.com/p/raspberry-gpio-python/wiki/Inputs read that
[3:59] <RiXtEr> (well a resistor in there)
[3:59] <clever> then you want the resistor between gpio and 3.3v
[3:59] <shiftplusone> GPIO.setup(channel, GPIO.IN, pull_up_down=GPIO.PUD_UP)
[3:59] <clever> or enable the internal one like shiftplusone said
[3:59] <RiXtEr> shiftplusone, been through that page many times... just didn't understand the pullup/pulldown language :)
[4:00] <shiftplusone> do you understand now?
[4:00] <piney> btw enabling the internal pull up is only needed one time ever. unless changed
[4:00] <RiXtEr> shiftplusone, eh....
[4:00] <clever> once per bootup
[4:00] <piney> oh?
[4:00] <shiftplusone> ... once every time your code runs... don't make assumptions about initial conditions.
[4:00] <clever> that kind of stuff is lost on restart, yeah, what shiftplusone said
[4:01] <RiXtEr> yeah the setup runs everytime the code runs... so this would set it every time.
[4:01] <shiftplusone> RiXtEr, do you understand the idea of floating inputs?
[4:01] * jaytk (~jaytk@108-232-157-80.lightspeed.tukrga.sbcglobal.net) Quit (Ping timeout: 245 seconds)
[4:01] <RiXtEr> shiftplusone, not exactly.
[4:01] <RiXtEr> shiftplusone, I am over simplifying it in my head I think... I think of a switch being a full connection between hot and ground.
[4:02] <clever> RiXtEr: if the pin isnt connected to a defined level like gnd or 3.3v, it will pick up RF energy, and the voltage could be anything
[4:02] <clever> youve made a random number generator!
[4:02] <RiXtEr> clever, :)
[4:02] <clever> you likely dont want a random number when the door is unlocked
[4:03] <shiftplusone> RiXtEr, imagine electricity as a field (which it is). Any time there is a change in current, there's an excitation in the electromagnetic field, which can be picked up by other wires (that's how radio works). When your input isn't connected to anything (as in the case of your circuit when the switch is open), it acts as an antenna for such changes.
[4:03] * jlf (~user@pdpc/supporter/active/jlf) has joined #raspberrypi
[4:03] <shiftplusone> I am oversimplifying as well, and probably got a bit of that wrong, but it's good enough as a basic understanding.
[4:04] <RiXtEr> shiftplusone, makes sense, but why is it reading the interference when the swich is depressed (wouldnt' that be a closed switch)
[4:04] <shiftplusone> RiXtEr, there are 'normally open and 'normally closed' switches. The pushbuttons are usually 'normally open'
[4:04] <clever> RiXtEr: stick a volt meter on the gpio pin, what is it reading?
[4:05] <RiXtEr> clever, its downstairs :) I will check it out in a bit. :)
[4:07] <shiftplusone> RiXtEr, so, when you design the circuit, you have to make sure that from the point of view of the gpio pin, there is either 3.3v 0v and under no circumstances should it be 'undefined'. It may help to redraw the circuit with the switch closed and another circuit with the switch open and consider the flow of the currents and voltage levels.
[4:07] <shiftplusone> at least to get the idea if you're struggling with it
[4:07] <clever> depending on how long the wire is, you may also have to consider the resistance of the wire (gnd->wire->switch->wire->gpio) vs the resistance of the pullup
[4:07] <RiXtEr> shiftplusone, I was thinking the gpio in input mode would always be 3.3v
[4:08] <clever> and treat it as a voltage divider
[4:08] <RiXtEr> but if thats not the case then I understand more why the pullup resistor is there.
[4:08] * Vialas_Air (~Vialas_Ai@ has joined #raspberrypi
[4:08] <Vialas_Air> hello everyone
[4:08] <shiftplusone> RiXtEr, if it's always 3.3v, how would it know a switch was pressed?
[4:08] <shiftplusone> hello, sir.
[4:09] <RiXtEr> shiftplusone, fair point ;)
[4:09] * opamp (~opamp@d149-67-4-188.col.wideopenwest.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[4:10] <Vialas_Air> I am wondering if its possible to set up a SD card immage on my computer though a emulation and then copy it to a SD card for production?
[4:12] <shiftplusone> Vialas_Air, yes, in theory.
[4:12] <RiXtEr> shiftplusone, the other thing I am not quite understanding is if I take a 3.3v gpio pin and ground it its shorted, how is putting this on a switch any different (or does the pi understand that it should be shorted when its in input mode)
[4:13] <shiftplusone> RiXtEr, input and output mode work differently.
[4:13] <clever> input mode means that the cpu isnt driving the line at all (if you dont count the pullup)
[4:13] <clever> so its free to have any voltage on it
[4:13] <shiftplusone> RiXtEr, in input mode, the pin does not provide any current, it's in a sort of high impedance state.
[4:13] <clever> yeah
[4:14] <Vialas_Air> shiftplusone in theory.... but a pain in da pita in reality?
[4:14] <shiftplusone> Vialas_Air, nuh, it will work fine, there are just a few things to consider. In what way do you want to set it up?
[4:14] * Jinx (~Jinx@unaffiliated/jinx) Quit (Ping timeout: 245 seconds)
[4:14] <RiXtEr> shiftplusone, clever, Ok, thats what I kind of thought, but wanted to confirm a bit more on it... so if I add the pullup resistor, what keeps me from burning up my board when I click the switch?
[4:15] <clever> RiXtEr: ohms law, resistor and voltage gives you current going thru the switch to force it to gnd
[4:15] <Vialas_Air> shiftplusone i want to run the immage on my mac, install software that i want (ie screen, python, lampstack) and then when i get home, load that immage to my sdcard for production
[4:15] <clever> with a big enough resistor, that current wont be able to burn anything up
[4:15] <RiXtEr> clever, hence the 10k ohm builtin resistor..
[4:15] <RiXtEr> I understand now :)
[4:16] <clever> and if you look at it as a voltage divider, you basicaly have 0 ohms on the switch side and 10,000 ohms on the pullup
[4:16] <clever> so the output of the divider is 0 volts
[4:16] <clever> (under perfect conditions)
[4:16] <shiftplusone> Vialas_Air, yeah, you'll be fine. I have a tutorial which should help you get things going. http://xecdesign.com/qemu-emulating-raspberry-pi-the-easy-way/
[4:16] <shiftplusone> Before the image goes back on the pi, undo the changes in that 'first boot' section of the tutorial.
[4:17] <Vialas_Air> oh thats great, thanks shiftplusone
[4:17] <Vialas_Air> :D
[4:17] <Vialas_Air> [14:16:58] <shiftplusone> Before the image goes back on the pi, undo the changes in that 'first boot' section of the tutorial.
[4:17] <shiftplusone> O_o
[4:17] <shiftplusone> np
[4:18] <shiftplusone> let me know if you have any problems. I just updated the tutorial recently, so I am not 100% sure it's perfectly clear yet.
[4:19] <shiftplusone> Vialas_Air, hm, now that I think of it... I am pretty sure that the first time raspbian boots it generates ssh keys and such.... I am not sure what the security implications are of distributing an image that has been booted into.
[4:20] <shiftplusone> RiXtEr, btw, I do recommend having a resistor in series as well. If the pin happens to be in output mode and you don't have a series resistor, bad things may happen.
[4:21] <RiXtEr> shiftplusone, indeed... I have a 1.7k (I think thats the one I put on it) on it.
[4:21] <shiftplusone> RiXtEr, that cambridge tutorial (http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/projects/raspberrypi/tutorials/robot/buttons_and_switches/ ) has a good circuit. Use that, but an internal pull up or pull down resistor, as necessary.

[4:29] <Vialas_Air> shiftplusone hmm interesting,,,, what do you mean, cant it generate a new set of keys?
[4:30] <clever> Vialas_Air: if you manualy delete the keys, it will create a new set on bootup
[4:30] <shiftplusone> It can, but it's probably something to keep in mind before you distribute the image.
[4:30] <Vialas_Air> nice, so that should fix the problem
[4:30] <Vialas_Air> :)
[4:30] <shiftplusone> I think the MAC address can also be an issue
[4:30] <clever> Vialas_Air: they are under /etc/ssh/,the name should be obvious
[4:31] * andrew91_ (~andrew918@ Quit (Quit: My MacBook Pro has gone to sleep. ZZZzzz…)
[4:31] <clever> all the key and pub files
[4:31] <shiftplusone> At least if you use an SD card in one pi and then move it to another, you have to delete some file to get the new MAC address
[4:32] <Vialas_Air> oh realy... that sucks
[4:32] <shiftplusone> again though, I am not 100% sure of this.
[4:33] <clever> first time i'm hearing of that
[4:33] <Vialas_Air> i always assumed one of the benifits is the sdcard and same hardware made it 'hot swappable'
[4:33] <clever> only similar thing ive heard of, is that some udev rules will bind eth0 to a given mac
[4:33] <Vialas_Air> shiftplusone - your tutorial does not cover mac ? ;(
[4:33] <clever> and if you change the network card, it winds up at eth1, eth2, eth3 ...
[4:33] <shiftplusone> Vialas_Air, my tutorial is only for booting the raspbian image.
[4:34] <clever> Vialas_Air: do you need to boot the image in an emulator?
[4:35] <clever> you can usualy do most things without booting it, if you know how
[4:36] <shiftplusone> http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?t=37779&p=314357
[4:37] <shiftplusone> hm ,nvrm
[4:38] <Vialas_Air> well the only way i know how to install would be to boot it :$
[4:40] <clever> Vialas_Air: usualy, i would say to mount it thru the loopback device and do a chroot on it
[4:40] <clever> but that only works if the image uses the same cpu type as the host
[4:40] * cybr1d (cybr1d@gateway/shell/freebnc/x-xccghooynpjhpbwa) has joined #raspberrypi
[4:40] <clever> you could boot one pi image in qemu, then use that trick inside it to mount a 2nd image without booting it
[4:40] <clever> but thats rather complex
[4:40] <shiftplusone> if you set up binfmt right and put qemu-arm-user-static you can chroot into it just fine

[4:41] <clever> ah, never tried using qemu like that, but i have heard of it
[4:41] <clever> got a link explaining it?
[4:41] <shiftplusone> just a sec
[4:42] <clever> it should also help speed up my mplayer/omx stuff
[4:42] <shiftplusone> The appendix of this page https://wiki.debian.org/QemuUserEmulation
[4:42] <clever> nice
[4:43] <shiftplusone> haven't tried it myself, so there may be an extra step I am not aware of
[4:43] <clever> from what ive heard, binfmt will detect the arm programs, and fire up qemu, which then emulates the cpu and translates the syscalls over
[4:44] <shiftplusone> yes, exactly
[4:44] <clever> so your running an arm userspace on an x86 kernel
[4:44] <clever> and binfmt lets you do it entirely transparently
[4:44] <clever> hmmm, but its ubuntu instructions, *adapts them to gentoo*
[4:44] <shiftplusone> gentoo probably has a better guide somewhere
[4:45] <shiftplusone> that was just the first thing google barfed at me.

[4:46] <Vialas_Air> are you guys still talking about what i was asking... if so its way above my head lol if not... sorry
[4:46] <shiftplusone> Vialas_Air, yes, but you'll be fine without it.
[4:46] <clever> Vialas_Air: it can be used to install things without booting

[4:50] <shiftplusone> ah

[6:13] <clever> yeah, but Vialas_Air likely cant handle something that complex :P
[6:13] <shiftplusone> mount -o loop,offset=bleh image /mnt/bleh or whatever
[6:13] <clever> and its harder to automate
[6:14] <shiftplusone> Probably trivial for someone who knows how to use sed/gawk and such.
[6:14] <shiftplusone> get the output of "file image.img" multiply startsector by 512 and you're done.
[6:14] <clever> 2013-09-25-wheezy-raspbian.img: ; partition 1: ID=0xc, starthead 130, startsector 8192, 114688 sectors; partition 2: ID=0x83, starthead 165, startsector 122880, 5662720 sectors
[6:14] <clever> 122880 is the number needed
[6:15] <shiftplusone> (122880*512)
[6:15] <clever> mount 2013-09-25-wheezy-raspbian.img -o loop,offset=$((122880*512)),ro /mnt/rpi/
[6:15] <clever> bash can do math for you
[6:15] <shiftplusone> ah... I've been using bc >.>
[6:15] <clever> bash cant do floating point
[6:17] <clever> and the fat partition usualy goes to /boot right?
[6:17] <clever> yep

[6:22] <clever> that might be it
[6:23] <clever> interpreter /usr/bin/qemu-arm
[6:23] <clever> yeah, its setup to find the arm interpreter here, but its not there anymore due to chroot
[6:23] <shiftplusone> pretty sure that gentoo tutorial tells you to copy qemu-arm-static into the chroot
[6:24] <clever> except i dont have a static version, *looks arround*
[6:24] <clever> also, the gentoo tutorial tells you to just install the debian package :P
[6:24] <shiftplusone> just add the 'static' use flag
[6:24] <shiftplusone> oh >_<

[6:26] <clever> execve("bin/bash", ["bin/bash"], [/* 49 vars */]) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
[6:26] <clever> ENOENT The file filename or a script or ELF interpreter does not exist, or a shared library needed for file or interpreter cannot be found.
[6:26] <shiftplusone> oh
[6:26] <clever> in this case, it falls under 'ELF interpreter does not exist'
[6:27] <shiftplusone> fair enough then
[6:27] <clever> its just a bit wonky, because we are using an ELF interpreter on an ELF binary
[6:27] <clever> so the error can lead you down the wrong path
[6:29] <clever> Error: zlib check failed
[6:29] <clever> Make sure to have the zlib libs and headers installed.
[6:29] <clever> and the package fails to compile without zlib, broken depends
[6:29] <clever> oh, wait, static-libs flag isnt enabled, different broken depends
[6:29] <shiftplusone> I don't miss gentoo too much
[6:30] <clever> you learn a lot more about how things work, and can remove things you dont want
[6:30] <shiftplusone> Yeah and I recommend gentoo to anyone who wants to learn linux a little better
[6:31] <clever> but then again, i have installed http://linuxfromscratch.org/lfs/ before
[6:31] <shiftplusone> same
[6:31] <clever> thats a learning expeirence

[7:08] <shiftplusone> nice how nature provides friendly reminders that I shouldn't go outside... ever. =D
[7:08] <clever> yep! :P
[7:09] <clever> wasnt that cold, was actualy nice
[7:09] <clever> living room: 22.56c(72.61f),
[7:09] <clever> been sweating like a pig indoors all day :P
[7:09] <clever> maybe i should open some windows

[7:10] <clever> living room off after 473 seconds
[7:10] <clever> 2013-10-30 07:36:22 portb changed from 00000010 -> 00000000

[7:11] <clever> turning it down will have no effect
[7:11] <shiftplusone> O_o 20 degrees inside when it's below freezing outside and no heater? O_o
[7:11] <clever> computers, plus the basement heating
[7:12] <clever> it leaks up the stairs
[7:12] <shiftplusone> hm
[7:12] <clever> plus leftover heat from the day, *grabs graphs*
[7:12] <clever> shiftplusone: http://ext.earthtools.ca/export/graph_105.html
[7:13] <shiftplusone> Seems like you take the temperature seriously
[7:13] <clever> http://ext.earthtools.ca/export/graph_70.html
[7:14] <clever> you can also see that my server room is a solid 3 degrees hotter then the bedroom
[7:14] <clever> and the heating is regulating based on bedroom temp
[7:15] <shiftplusone> Then why is the kitchen so much better regulated? O_o
[7:15] <shiftplusone> ah, nvrm.... different scales >.>
[7:15] <clever> the kitchen is just above the stairs
[7:15] <clever> the bedroom is in the basement
[7:16] <clever> so all the heat from the bedroom drifts up, and the stairs act like a low-pass filter

[7:28] <clever> its complicated
[7:29] <clever> Vialas_: oh, and you must be an adult to agree to the contract
[7:29] <shiftplusone> Though I do wonder how legally enforceable such things are.
[7:29] <clever> shiftplusone: i think its mostly a thing where they just ban/delete your account if you dont obey
[7:30] <shiftplusone> Yeah, but I was thinking more of eulas prohibiting reverse engineering in countries where reverse engineering is legal.
[7:30] <clever> ive also noticed, that the payment controls that the helpline has, are very limited
[7:30] <clever> for example, if you pay for the wrong account by mistake, the only fix is to ban that account for 1 year
[7:30] <clever> and refund the money
[7:31] <clever> they cant undo the time added to it, just lock you out of it for that lenth of time
[7:32] <shiftplusone> I'm off, nap time!
[7:32] <clever> also, the contract crap they had with d3, was just nutty
[7:32] <Vialas_> wow
[7:32] <Vialas_> thats harsh clever
[7:32] <Vialas_> hmm that may be a bad way of getting someones account baned
[7:32] <clever> Vialas_: effectively, there is no real difference
[7:32] <Vialas_> pay for their account and banzor them
[7:32] <clever> i was told that if i pay for the account again, the ban would be lifted early
[7:33] <clever> but the d3 crap
[7:33] <clever> you had to pay for 1 year of warcraft, and you got a free copy of d3
[7:33] <clever> but you cant just get 1 year worth of game time cards and add them all at once
[7:33] <Vialas_> hmm
[7:33] <clever> you MUST add a credit card to your account
[7:33] <Vialas_> seems fishy to me
[7:34] <clever> the credit card thing, is to force you to pay for the full year of wow, its a contract thing
[7:34] <clever> but the idiots dont let you pay the full year upfront and say 'f off'
[7:34] <Vialas_> yea
[7:34] <Vialas_> hmmm
[7:34] <clever> the most you can do is 6 months reocuring
[7:34] <clever> and it must be done with a credit card, they dont want you to forget in 6 months

[10:41] <afterglow94> okay let me try that :D
[10:41] <melfy> cron is already a background process
[10:42] <Jck_True_> you can use "which" to find out where the executable is
[10:42] <afterglow94> oh
[10:43] <afterglow94> wait, i'll try this out first
[10:43] <Jck_True_> which rpitwit
[10:43] <ShorTie> is there a 'make install' for rpitwit ??
[10:44] <afterglow94> i'm sorry but... I don't understand what 'make install' is
[10:44] <afterglow94> hahahah
[10:45] <ShorTie> it installs it so the system can see and use it without changing into that directory and running it

[10:46] <ShorTie> from the specific directory or any where ??
[10:46] <afterglow94> it returns "/usr/local/bin/rpitwit"
[10:46] <Jck_True_> It's installed then
[10:46] <afterglow94> frm anywhere
[10:46] <ShorTie> ok, so it is installed
[10:46] <afterglow94> well it's still not running
[10:47] <afterglow94> I just tested it
[10:47] <afterglow94> i hope it's not running as root though

Some sources claim power outages damage the card, other sources say you should hook up the Pi to your tv so it shuts down automatically, which makes me believe it could damage the card.

[13:13] <ShorTie> you would need a signal from the tv to a gpio pin that would triger a script to shut it down
[13:13] <gordonDrogon> sinni800, there are linux systems that are power-off proof..

[13:14] <gordonDrogon> if someone writes it, then yes..
[13:14] <Xano> ShorTie: I can check that, but otherwise I'll just hook it up to a power outlet. It's pretty stable here. I assume the data corruption problem is the same as with any other persistent storage solution, such as HDDs?
[13:14] <sinni800> heh..
[13:14] <sinni800> Xano: yeah.
[13:14] <sinni800> it's just as much of a problem as if you pull the plug on your tower pc

[13:19] <Xano> I thought so. However, ShorTie mentioned damage (or was that just to the FS?), and some sources also mentioned physical damage. FUD, or truth?
[13:19] <Habbie> physical damage is pretty darn unlikely, that's for sure
[13:20] <Habbie> but the stories about FS damage on the Pi SD do not seem to be similar to HDD issues

[13:24] <Xano> Awesome :)
[13:25] <Xano> Several articles also recommended using USB storage for XBMC (the particular application I want to use the Pi for) over SD for speed improvements. Next to the SD card's and USB drive's read and write speeds, are there any other factors to take into account?

[13:39] <overrider> I build a webserver using rpi where i copy the webapplication from /app to /ramdisk/app, and serve it from there. I also use php apc to increase performance. Does this even make sense? The rational to copy from /app to /ramdisk/app on each boot was to conserve sdcard writes and increase performance, but not actually sure how much it will help.
[13:40] * _BigWings_ (~Thunderbi@modemcable055.111-22-96.mc.videotron.ca) has joined #raspberrypi
[13:40] <overrider> So if i leave /app where it is; do 'reads' wear out an sdcard in the same way that 'writes' do?
[13:40] <gordonDrogon> overrider, web server will (should) be reading most of the time. just don't keep logs if you don't want writes.
[13:40] <gordonDrogon> reading isn't an issue, it's only writing.
[13:41] <gordonDrogon> but then, it'll last a year or 2 anyway with a good quality SD card and they're cheap to replace.
[13:41] <Habbie> overrider, reads do not wear it out and reads will come from cache anyway
[13:41] <gordonDrogon> ie. don't put more effort into it than it costs to replace...

[18:44] <gordonDrogon> compiling on the Pi isn't too bad.
[18:44] <gordonDrogon> assuming the project has things like a (c)makefile, etc.
[18:44] <codebeaker> yeah, it does gordonDrogon
[18:45] <codebeaker> the problem is that we sell these things, and I have one Pi that I use to work on
[18:45] <codebeaker> and then need to push like ~3/4 per week out, with the software installed, and they shouldn't have dev tools, etc
[18:45] <codebeaker> so ideally, I'd just work on my mac, and cross compile down tothe pi
[18:45] <codebeaker> but you are right, the workflow now isn't tooo bad
[18:45] <gordonDrogon> Pi's come with dev tools - but I presume you're not pushing out Pi's ...
[18:46] <codebeaker> actually they're trivial foot traffic sensors that count the ambient wifi noise, and use that as a measure of which parts of shopping centres are popular (without tracking individualpeople)
[18:46] <gordonDrogon> NFS mount the sources, compile on the Pi, build package, etc.
[18:46] <codebeaker> yeh, nsf mounts might be the right solution, really
[18:46] <gordonDrogon> it's just another unix box afterall ;-)
[18:46] <codebeaker> I suppose I could leave an fswatcher running, and have it compiled on file changes
[18:47] <codebeaker> at the moment I'm scp'ing stuff up, and compiling it over SSH
[18:47] <codebeaker> which has worked, so far

[19:50] <gordonDrogon> if not- then someone was ;)
[19:50] <NovaXeros> ADC be able to read a voltage, however, the max resistance on the ladder is 3.7kohms, so I'd need a similar number for the other part of the divider.
[19:50] <NovaXeros> YES! It was me, gladd you remember, might make this easier.
[19:50] <gordonDrogon> ok - seems you have more information now.
[19:50] <NovaXeros> I've done some research on it all, and this is what I think will be the solution.
[19:51] * Yachtsman (~Yachtsman@173-115-38-162.pools.spcsdns.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[19:51] <theaftermath> So you are using an resistor ladder and a ADC?
[19:51] <gordonDrogon> stick one end of the ladder to 3.3v - the other end to the ADC input and also connect that to 0v via a 2.2K resistor.
[19:51] <awkwords> how do i share a folder on my mac to my rasbmc via nfs?
[19:51] <gordonDrogon> +3.3v <---- R1---R2---R3---R4---+ADC+---2.2K--- 0v
[19:52] <theaftermath> gordon's got it.
[19:53] <NovaXeros> That would be great Gordon, except the ladder only has 1 wire for me to access and tinker with. The other wire on the other side of the ladder is a shared ground with the LEDS in the controls unit, and is also inside the steering wheel, so I can't alter it. That's what I'm after right now, some advice on whether there even is a solution to that.
[19:53] <NovaXeros> IE
[19:54] <gordonDrogon> So... connect that to the ADC input and connect up the 0v on the ADC to the -ve on the car.
[19:54] <NovaXeros> 3.3v <---- 2.2k ----- +ADC+ ---- <LADDER> ---> GND
[19:54] <gordonDrogon> you ought to be able to measure the voltage that way - test with a multimeter.
[19:54] <gordonDrogon> don't use an external resistor - the car electronics alreadt has that.

[19:55] <gordonDrogon> so check with a voltmeter.

[19:57] * FR^2 (~frquadrat@farsquare.de) Quit (Quit: Connection reset by peer)
[19:57] <theaftermath> for instance why are you using a resistor ladder instead of a fixed resistor when you can't use any of the outputs from the reisistor ladder?
[19:57] <gordonDrogon> theaftermath, cars are like that - lowers the number of wires from the steering wheel to the computer.
[19:58] <gordonDrogon> theaftermath, he's tapping into an existing circuit...
[19:58] <NovaXeros> pksato: Honestly, I'm trying, but with the little knowledge I have, it's really hard to get that across on a medium that really is just a multiplayer notepad. I'm considering drawing a bit of a wiring diagram, scanning it, then posting it to Deviantart or something daft to try and help.
[19:58] <theaftermath> ahhhhhh
[19:58] <awkwords> @theaftermath thats using AFP i want to use NFS
[19:58] <GerhardSchr> I would build a dashcam, which usb cam is good for these? and can I extend the usb cable of the cam?
[19:58] <gordonDrogon> NovaXeros, connect a multimter to the one wire and the car's 0v/-ve line - set it to volts and see what you get.
[19:59] <NovaXeros> And yeah, Gordon's got it, I'm tapping an already existing system, which is what's making this damn difficult, because I only have access to one wire, and I have virtually no idea what it does.
[19:59] * DrMax_ (~Dr@unaffiliated/drmax) has joined #raspberrypi
[19:59] <NovaXeros> AHA! Yes, Gordon, I can actually say I've done that and the result is wierd.
[19:59] <NovaXeros> There are no volts.
[19:59] <NovaXeros> Literally, none.
[19:59] <gordonDrogon> was the ignition on?
[19:59] <pksato> Other day I asked to NovaXeros that is doing, and to put photo of the device.
[19:59] <NovaXeros> I've set the voltmeter to every setting, ignition on or off, stereo on or off (not that it's connected to that wire anyway)
[19:59] <pksato> Its is a simple resistos network connected to set of buttons.
[20:00] <NovaXeros> Litereally, no difference, but the multi meter in resistance mode can read the different resistances of the buttons as I press them.
[20:00] <NovaXeros> But no matter what's pressed or on, 0v
[20:00] <pksato> each switch connect some node of resistors to GND.
[20:00] <gordonDrogon> there is the possibility that it's a digital system - and the wire is normally at 0v ...
[20:01] <gordonDrogon> unlikely though as there would need to be a �C in the steering wheel.
[20:01] * Matt_R (~Matt_R@mail.playcore.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[20:01] <NovaXeros> Yeah, it seems like it's a set of resisters in series, with switches that 'short' the resistors to the common ground at different points in the series ladder.
[20:01] <pksato> To reduce wiring, most sound system use ADC to measure resistance.
[20:01] <NovaXeros> So actually, ladder may not be the most accurate description.
[20:02] <NovaXeros> And it's definitely analog. I've researched the model enough to know that it uses the old analog system, before they introduced shit like CANBUS
[20:02] <pksato> 3v3 -> 2k2 ->(ADC)<- leader of resistors -> GND
[20:03] <gordonDrogon> NovaXeros, check channel language policy please..

[20:04] <NovaXeros> The ADC is an MCP3008, quite a basic SPI one. if I'm using 3.3v and 2.2k resistance, will there be enough current left in the system to actually run the ADC's internals? Or would 2.2k be too high resistance?
[20:04] <NovaXeros> In which case, would I not need an amp somewhere then to use that divider system?

[20:05] <gordonDrogon> the inputs work on voltage not current.
[20:05] <theaftermath> 12v/2.2K = 5ma
[20:05] <NovaXeros> we'd be working with 3.3v, aftermath. The ADC would unlikely take 12v.
[20:05] <NovaXeros> It's operational zone, IIRC, was 2.7v to 5v
[20:05] <NovaXeros> give or take
[20:06] <theaftermath> oh right and like gordon said its an input so current isn't the issue
[20:06] <NovaXeros> Excellent.
[20:06] <theaftermath> if it sunk 5ma on an input I'd be a little worried actually.
[20:06] <NovaXeros> so you think 2.2k ish for the 3.7k that is the ladder itself?
[20:06] <gordonDrogon> but the first stage is making a multimeter read the current voltage - if you can't do that, then you'll not read it from the Pi..

[20:08] <NovaXeros> pretty sure, gordon. It's 1 wire from the steering wheel construct right to the back of the stereo.
[20:09] <pksato> "steering wheel" whats is confusing all.
[20:09] <theaftermath> might I ask what exactly you want to do with the information from the ADC?
[20:09] * DDave (~DDave@unaffiliated/ddave) has joined #raspberrypi
[20:09] <gordonDrogon> there needs to be at least one other wire going into the steering wheel...
[20:10] <gordonDrogon> ah - maybe not. if the steering wheel is itself connected to 0v, then it's the other way round.
[20:10] <SpeedEvil> Be careful screwing with wires in a steering wheel. They can blow your head clean off.
[20:10] <gordonDrogon> so you need to measure the voltage relative to the car's +ve supply.
[20:10] * picca_ (~picca@ Quit (Quit: Computer has gone to sleep.)
[20:11] <NovaXeros> @theaftermath to begin with, the pi will be running a python script that listens to the ADC, and depending on the value it gets back, issues a JSON command to an LMS media server running on the pi to skip tracks or pause.

[21:38] <NovaXeros> Mildly inconsistent readings back from the ADC, but I think that isn't helped by the breadboard I'm using. It gives inconsistent readings when it's on there all the time.

[22:08] <NovaXeros_> Without specialist equipment, or anything that will break the bank as it were, what is the best way of making a more permanent circuit housing for the ADC to interface with the pi and the steering wheel controls?
[22:09] <NovaXeros_> Obviously the perfect method would be some kind of printed PCB, but I've not a clue how those are done, and have no machinery with which to do that.

[22:12] <debenham> making a custom PCB doesn't have to cost too much.
[22:12] <debenham> You can get kits to do it for about $40 at jaycar in .au (probably similar things overseas as well)
[22:12] <debenham> All that is needed is a blank board, a suitable marker pen, some acid and a shallow tray
[22:15] <pksato> single side PCB is easy to make.
