[1:01] * crumb (crumb@gateway/shell/cadoth.net/x-sqqiyeavqbwcbvwb) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:02] <crumb> hey, do i need to purchase a license to play flv1 codecs?
[1:02] * taza (~zap@unaffiliated/taza) Quit ()
[1:02] <shiftplusone> pretty sure flv is a container
[1:03] <pksato> http://elinux.org/RPiconfig
[1:03] <`|`> Do i add the line in?
[1:04] * MrVector (~Vector@host109-153-79-255.range109-153.btcentralplus.com) Quit (Ping timeout: 252 seconds)
[1:04] <shiftplusone> crumb, it will depend on the flv, but I only see H264, which doesn't require an additional codec and some other formats for which there are no codecs available anyway. I am pretty sure the pi will handle those fine as well, as long as you use omx.
[1:04] * MrVector (~Vector@host86-159-88-244.range86-159.btcentralplus.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:04] <shiftplusone> but "it depends"
[1:05] <crumb> it's just old school flv1 (flash video) codec
[1:05] <crumb> before flash player implemented h.264
[1:05] * `|` (5e0b314b@gateway/web/freenode/ip. Quit (Quit: Page closed)
[1:05] <hybr1d8> flv1 is a codec - but there is no hardware decode for it on the pi
[1:05] <hybr1d8> It will need to be decoded in software
[1:06] <hybr1d8> which should be fine as long as not HD
[1:06] <crumb> so why doesn't it
[1:06] <crumb> yeah, it's not hd
[1:06] <shiftplusone> What are you using to play it?
[1:06] <crumb> openelec
[1:06] * jlf (~user@pdpc/supporter/active/jlf) Quit (Ping timeout: 272 seconds)
[1:06] <shiftplusone> And it's slow or you don't get any output at all?
[1:06] <crumb> i just get audio
[1:06] * delcoyote (~delcoyote@unaffiliated/delcoyote) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[1:07] <linuxstb> AFAIK xbmc on the Pi doesn't do any software video decoding - if the GPU doesn't support it, it's not played.
[1:07] * Viper-7 (~viper7@ppp121-44-71-201.lns20.syd6.internode.on.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:07] <shiftplusone> have you tried using omxplayer directly?
[1:07] <linuxstb> Same with omxplayer...
[1:07] <crumb> man, that bites
[1:07] <hybr1d8> openelec is using xbmc to play videos - perhaps the xbmc build doesn't have flv1 support
[1:07] <shiftplusone> linuxstb, nuh, not true.
[1:08] <linuxstb> shiftplusone: Really? When did that change?
[1:08] * kcj (~casey@unaffiliated/kcj) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:08] <shiftplusone> I don't recall that being the case at all. I'll double check later, I doubt that every file I have ever played on the pi has been h.264.
[1:08] * Turingi (~devon@unaffiliated/devon-hillard/x-7250961) Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[1:08] <hybr1d8> It's always used SW decode for stuff that there is no HW decode - it is just a *lot* slower and so many things don't work well
[1:09] <shiftplusone> ^ yeah that's what I have always 'known'
[1:09] <rikkib> Wonder where I find a radar speed measuring module...
[1:09] <rikkib> Or Laser
[1:10] <linuxstb> hybr1d8: You're talking about xbmc or omxplayer, or both?
[1:10] <hybr1d8> xbmc
[1:11] <hybr1d8> not sure on omxplayer
[1:12] <shiftplusone> linuxstb, where did you get that idea though? Something you've read somewhere or something you have concluded based on bad luck with some files?
[1:12] <pksato> rikkib: http://www.eodevices.com/main_erc_2kit_frameset.htm
[1:13] <rikkib> cheers
[1:13] <linuxstb> shiftplusone: From everything I've read about omxplayer/xbmc, and from looking at the source to omxplayer. I've just always thought it was a hardware-only player.
[1:14] <Sudsey> dude, I love flv
[1:14] <Sudsey> it's my favourite codec
[1:14] <shiftplusone> O_o
[1:14] <shiftplusone> hm
[1:15] <Sudsey> > good quality, space efficient
[1:15] <Sudsey> also has cool name
[1:15] <Sudsey> and then I think ogg is everyone's favourite audio codec
[1:15] <pksato> rikkib: or http://www.hokuyo-aut.jp/02sensor/07scanner/urg_04lx_ug01.html
[1:15] <chithead> ogg is just a container format
[1:16] <linuxstb> shiftplusone, hybr1d8: (sorry for the google cache link, wiki.xbmc.org seems down) - http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:Y4fcwlZNgk8J:wiki.xbmc.org/%3Ftitle%3DRaspberry_Pi/FAQ&client=firefox-a&hl=en&gl=uk&strip=1 - see the answer to 1.4
[1:16] <crumb> are the license keys generated manually or something?
[1:17] <shiftplusone> crumb, by a badly written script which needs manual intervention too often.
[1:17] * pirea (~pirea@ has joined #raspberrypi
[1:17] <pirea> hy
[1:17] <pirea> i have a problem
[1:17] <crumb> ugh
[1:17] <shiftplusone> doesn't cope well with people entering stuff other than their serial numbers
[1:17] <pksato> WiiDAR http://letsmakerobots.com/node/24259
[1:17] <pirea> my rpi have 2 bogomips
[1:17] <crumb> maybe they should ask someone to help them sanitize input
[1:17] <pirea> why?
[1:18] <crumb> pirea: you're the winner
[1:18] <pirea> why?
[1:18] <pirea> what means that?
[1:18] <shiftplusone> linuxstb, that faq doesn't really say that it doesn't play other files... just says that it supports those. Anyway.... something to experiment with later.
[1:19] <pirea> crumb that means my cpu is damaged?
[1:19] * e-Flex (~e-Flex@h-194-173.a357.priv.bahnhof.se) Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[1:20] * felipealmeida (~user@ has joined #raspberrypi
[1:20] <shiftplusone> crumb, they didn't write the script, it's some third party thing.
[1:20] <crumb> oh
[1:20] <crumb> pirea: no
[1:20] <pirea> but?
[1:20] <pksato> bogomips > _bogus_ mips
[1:20] <shiftplusone> pirea, what's the "problem" ?
[1:21] <pirea> shiftplusone my rpi have 2 bogomips
[1:21] <shiftplusone> yeah, but what's the problem?
[1:21] <pirea> bogomips not must be 697?
[1:21] <shiftplusone> nope
[1:22] <linuxstb> shiftplusone: I guess that's true, but I've also never read anyone say that it tries to do software decoding. Of course, happy to be proved wrong ;)
[1:22] <pirea> what means lower bogomips?
[1:22] <shiftplusone> pirea, absolutely nothing.
[1:23] <plugwash> iirc it means they changed how delays were handled in the kernel
[1:23] <shiftplusone> pirea, you might be interested in running vcgencmd measure_clock arm
[1:23] <plugwash> so the calibration factor (which is what bogomips really is) changed
[1:23] <pirea> shiftplusone will be again 697?
[1:23] <shiftplusone> no
[1:23] <pksato> pirea: why 697?
[1:24] <plugwash> http://www.raspbian.org/munin/bytemark/raspbian.org/diskstats_utilization-day.png <-- the difference a battery can make
[1:24] <shiftplusone> battery?
[1:24] <pirea> because that is the value of the cpu :)
[1:24] <pirea> when is not overclocked
[1:24] <plugwash> shiftplusone, raid controller cache battery to be specific
[1:25] <shiftplusone> ah
[1:25] <shiftplusone> pirea, why do you think that bogomips must mean something?
[1:25] <pksato> bogomips depend of kernel version.
[1:26] <pirea> pksato really?
[1:26] <shiftplusone> pirea, to be 100% clear. Your CPU frequency and the 'bogomips' you get... are not related in the way you seem to think they are.
[1:26] <pksato> Its a only internal kernel magic number.
[1:26] * double-you (~Miranda@188-193-36-153-dynip.superkabel.de) Quit (Quit: ja)
[1:27] <pksato> is do noting about speed of hw.
[1:27] <shiftplusone> If you use a kernel that gives you 1 billion bogomips, it doesn't mean your CPU will run 1t that clock rate.
[1:27] <shiftplusone> *at
[1:27] <plugwash> well it would be very unusual for bogomips to be higher than clock rate....
[1:27] <pirea> shiftplusone oooooooookey
[1:27] <pirea> tnxt
[1:27] <pirea> tnx
[1:28] <shiftplusone> plugwash, well yeah, you would need to edit the function which calculates it to return that... I was just making a point, heh.
[1:28] <pksato> but, that is yours rpi actual bogomips? and kernel version?
[1:28] * Datalink (~Datalink@unaffiliated/datalink) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:28] <plugwash> basically bogomips is a timing calibration factor, so IF the kernel uses CPU cycles for timing loops then it will be of the same order of magnitude as CPU clock speed
[1:29] <plugwash> OTOH if the kernel doesn't use CPU cycles for timing loops and instead uses some other timer then it can be much lower, that seems to be the case for recent Pi kernels.
[1:30] <pirea> i will try an older kernel
[1:31] <shiftplusone> for moar bogomips hax?
[1:31] <pksato> boot my pi to see her bogomips...
[1:32] <shiftplusone> (it's 2 here as well)

[2:24] <Sudsey> I don't really like sftp, I'd much rather something a little more configurable and convenient
[2:24] <amigojapan> ok shiftplusone
[2:24] <Sudsey> sftp needs to have pageant running and the like to provide keys

[2:25] <shiftplusone> keys are optional

[2:26] <Sudsey> I'd also like to set up a system for anons to be able to connect and download small things I'm working on
[2:26] <Sudsey> none of those are really possible with sftp, as far as I know
[2:26] <Gorroth> git
[2:26] <amigojapan> Sudsey: make an anonymous user?
[2:26] <Sudsey> yeah, but they'd still need keys
[2:27] <Sudsey> as far as I know
[2:27] <Gorroth> run a gitserver maybe
[2:27] <amigojapan> no they would not Sudsey , it is optional
[2:27] <Gorroth> hmm, yeah. you could setup a user with a gitshell so they can't login, but they can still use git
[2:27] <Sudsey> not just source code, other things that might not involve it
[2:27] <Sudsey> like sound files
[2:27] <Gorroth> hmm
[2:28] <Gorroth> i wonder how dreamhost makes sftp-only users
[2:28] <amigojapan> Sudsey: set up apache
[2:28] <Sudsey> I do use sftp for quickly getting around the filesystem, though
[2:28] <Sudsey> it's a lot easier than doing it via bash

[2:29] <Sudsey> I suppose
[2:29] <amigojapan> Sudsey: if you want anonymous people to download files, it seems you would want a webserver
[2:29] <Gorroth> you could also setup no password and setup that group's config in sshd_config so that it doesn't require kesy
[2:29] <Gorroth> you suppose? that's what you were asking for
[2:29] * teepee (~teepee@gateway/tor-sasl/teepee) has joined #raspberrypi
[2:30] <Sudsey> a webserver's a little more heavyweight, though
[2:31] <Sudsey> and I'd also like to set up a virtual user with a password that has full r/w permissions and access to a folder usually hidden to anons
[2:31] <amigojapan> ok, that sounds like a job for SFTP
[2:32] <Sudsey> hmm
[2:33] <Gorroth> yup
[2:33] <Gorroth> same procedure as i gave above, except set a passwd
[2:33] <Sudsey> okay, could I do the following with sftp
[2:33] <Sudsey> only two accounts can access the ftp server, anon and admin
[2:33] <Sudsey> neither can navigate outside, say, the /ftp/ directory
[2:34] <amigojapan> yes Sudsey , it is just a matter of working with permissions and groups
[2:34] <Sudsey> anon is passwordless and admin is passworded, anon can only download at 10KBps and from every directory except /ftp/private/, which they can't see or access
[2:34] <Sudsey> admin has unlimited r/w and also has access to the private directory

[2:34] <amigojapan> Sudsey: let me check about the passwordless part, one sec
[2:35] <Sudsey> righto, thanks
[2:35] <Sudsey> I honestly wouldn't have a clue where to look, being the linux noob that I am xD
[2:35] * crumb (crumb@gateway/shell/cadoth.net/x-sqqiyeavqbwcbvwb) has left #raspberrypi
[2:36] <Sudsey> oh, by the way, admin is a virtual user
[2:36] <Sudsey> did I already say that?
[2:36] <amigojapan> Sudsey: what do you mean by virtual?
[2:37] <Sudsey> it's not an actual user on the OS, it's a virtual user that only exists inside the FTP server
[2:39] * rjanja (~rjanja@066-241-071-228.ashlandfiber.net) Quit (Ping timeout: 240 seconds)
[2:40] <amigojapan> Sudsey: apparently it si possible, but you need to make a chroot, which would be more complicated than just starting a regular ftp deamon....
[2:41] <Sudsey> yeah, I figured
[2:41] * rjanja (~rjanja@066-241-071-228.ashlandfiber.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[2:41] <amigojapan> Sudsey: there are also lightweight webservers
[2:41] <Sudsey> it'd probably be easier on a proper ftp server
[2:42] <Sudsey> yeah, I don't really need a webserver anyway, though
[2:42] <shiftplusone> Sudsey, in all of this time trying to get help with vsftpd and justifying your life choices, you could've figured out the configuration for it ;)
[2:42] <amigojapan> Sudsey: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_lightweight_web_servers
[2:42] <Sudsey> if I end up needing one then I will switch the ftp to it to save overhead

[2:44] * owen_ (~owen@ Quit (Quit: Konversation terminated!)
[2:44] <amigojapan> Sudsey: here is what I am thinking.... use the lightweight webserver for the anonynmous files..... and use SFTP for the admin user
[2:44] <Sudsey> I get what you're saying, but I don't really see any point to getting a webserver, even if it is lightweight, if all I'm going to be using it for is ftp
[2:45] <Sudsey> and it's not really like linking people to them from forums and stuff to download, it's a place for my friends and I to piddle files to and from
[2:45] * owen_ (~owen@ has joined #raspberrypi
[2:45] <Sudsey> you can access ftp from a browser regardless, so you wouldn't even need an ftp client
[2:46] <amigojapan> well then set up an ftp server Sudsey
[2:46] <Sudsey> :I
[2:46] <Sudsey> ...
[2:46] <Sudsey> xD
[2:46] <Sudsey> I think I will go email teh chris
[2:46] <Sudsey> hope he has time

[3:04] <azizLIGHTS> is apache an approrpiate web server to use on pi?
[3:04] <azizLIGHTS> memory and load wise?
[3:05] <azizLIGHTS> htop says 272/469 MB ram
[3:05] <Gorroth> you don't need to create a chroot. did anyone read the article i posted earlier? ssh can itself map particular user groups to a chroot it manages
[3:05] <shiftplusone> it's ok, but if you don't want to go disabling unecessary modules and optimizing it, just install nginx
[3:05] * jlf (~user@pdpc/supporter/active/jlf) has joined #raspberrypi
[3:05] <Gorroth> for that particular user group, you can also enable password-enabled logins and set the user with no password and also make it so they can't write
[3:06] <Gorroth> and you can setup some admin user (but it will have to be a real user) taht is also chroot'd there but has a password and has r/w
[3:06] <azizLIGHTS> ok, ill try nginx
[3:06] <azizLIGHTS> does it allow a public_html dir in the user's dir out of hte box
[3:07] <Sudsey> the config gives an option and recommends that you give vsftpd a user for itself
[3:07] <Sudsey> do you think it would be fine to have it share a user with znc?
[3:07] <Gorroth> shiftplusone: can nginx be used to run modules that apache has? like mod_php.so and other things that let languages like ruby and python work?
[3:08] <shiftplusone> Gorroth, nuh, not that I am aware of. It uses fastcgi, so to run php, you need php5-fpm
[3:08] <Gorroth> okay, sounds good
[3:08] <Gorroth> sometime, perhaps i'll figure out how to set taht up
[3:08] <shiftplusone> but yeah, there are other things... not apache modules, but alternatives

[3:12] <amigojapan> Sudsey: first try it with teh welcome message, then withought
[3:12] <Sudsey> yeah, I will
[3:12] <Gorroth> what is the advantage to nginx anyway?

[3:50] <shiftplusone> So... mysql is quite resource hungry. Any quick tips to fix that?

[4:11] <Skei> Morning, all. I'm struggling to get my Pi to connect to a wireless network using a command line. Any help would be really appreciated. I've tried editing /etc/network/interfaces and /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf, but it won't connect to the wireless on boot. I've also tried using wicd-curses, but my LAN drops when I try to connect to the wireless then

[4:23] <Sudsey> SirLagz: we had a fairly large discussion about that this morning haha
[4:23] <SirLagz> Sudsey: lol must have missed it
[4:24] <espitz> ah... no... but I would asj the same as SirLagz... why not SFTP/SCP
[4:24] * azizLIGHTS (~azizLIGHT@c-50-154-34-44.hsd1.fl.comcast.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[4:24] <Sudsey> mainly because the way I'm trying to configure it would be a pain in the ass with sftp
[4:24] <SirLagz> owncloud ? dropbox type system ?
[4:24] <amigojapan> espitz: that has been the topic for the last few hours, he doesnt want it, he is not flexible
[4:24] <Sudsey> ftp because I want to make use of my pi haha
[4:24] <SirLagz> write a php based file uploder/downloader with authentication
[4:25] <SirLagz> then don't even need to mess with ftp
[4:25] <Sudsey> not too good with web stuff

[4:26] <amigojapan> SirLagz: he refused to install a web server
[4:26] <SirLagz> oh.
[4:26] <SirLagz> well that's not making very good use of the Pi ll
[4:26] <SirLagz> lol*
[4:26] <NothingMn> http://www.instructables.com/id/Raspberry-Pi-Owncloud-dropbox-clone/ :)
[4:26] <amigojapan> SirLagz: he thinks ftp is less overhead than a web server
[4:26] <Sudsey> heh
[4:26] <espitz> well, I'm new here, so excuse me if I'm being obtuse... but 3 hours is long time to try to talk someone into doing something they dont want to do... lol
[4:27] <Sudsey> I'm using it for the purpose of just leaving files on it to move around places and also for other people to get them from if they ever want them
[4:27] <Sudsey> and for people I'm partnered with to edit and then reupload
[4:27] <SirLagz> Sudsey: if you're spending this much time configuring it, you'd be better off with a pre-built solution
[4:27] <Sudsey> also because I like ftp in general and want to set one up on my pi haha
[4:28] <Sudsey> SirLagz: but I have to learn D:
[4:28] <SirLagz> learning ftp isn't too useful nowadays lol
[4:28] <Sudsey> haha
[4:28] <SirLagz> I don't know anything off the top of my head that still uses fTP
[4:28] <Sudsey> just how to linux/server things in general
[4:29] <SirLagz> Sudsey: you should learn how to linux/server a webserver then ;)
[4:29] <Sudsey> heh
[4:29] <SirLagz> and then linux/server php as well
[4:29] <Sudsey> if I ever set up a webserver for webserver things I'll move the ftp server onto it for the sake of efficiency
[4:29] <SirLagz> and then linux/server a web based file uploader/downloader
[4:29] <Sudsey> our school uses ftp and I know a fair few things other things do, albeit in a webserver form
[4:30] <SirLagz> because that's what i ended up doing 10 years ago to do the exact same thing you're doing now
[4:30] <Sudsey> very true xD
[4:30] <SirLagz> holy crap. that was 10 years ago.
[4:30] <SirLagz> back when i was in school lol
[4:30] <SirLagz> i feel old now
[4:30] <Sudsey> I'm still /in/ school

[4:31] <Sudsey> it's really for the sake of having an interest in setting up and managing these things, and for making use of a pi
[4:31] * jbaanus (~jbaanus@ has joined #raspberrypi
[4:31] <SirLagz> i had the exact same mindset as you 11 years ago :D

[4:31] <Somasis> using bittorrent sync with raspberry pi is perfection
[4:32] <SirLagz> Sudsey: back then, i built up an old AMD k6 box, and started building all sorts of servers on it
[4:32] <Sudsey> hehe
[4:32] <SirLagz> web server, ftp, mail, samba, irc, half-life
[4:32] * plugwash generally gets the feeling that ftp is on it's way out
[4:32] <SirLagz> plugwash: agreed.
[4:33] <Sudsey> obviously if this was a practical situation and I was making some sort of utility and I needed a cdn (if that's the right word), then I would be using a webserver, for obvious reasons
[4:33] <plugwash> for anonymous file serving http has lower overheads and less complexity
[4:33] <Sudsey> but this isn't serious, it's for fun
[4:33] <SirLagz> with the whole cloud file storage solutions out there, ftp is becoming less and less useful
[4:33] <Sudsey> plugwash: yeah, definitely
[4:33] <Sudsey> woah
[4:33] <Sudsey> netsplit on esper
[4:33] <plugwash> and for authenticated access people generally desire systems that don't send passwords in plain text over the internet
[4:33] <plugwash> (at least the smart ones do)
[4:33] <Sudsey> I've set up SSL for the ftp server
[4:34] <Sudsey> so that's not as much of an issue
[4:34] <espitz> I'm partial to SCP myself, though I'm not sure what "security" concerns you might have... in my opinion, it's by far the easiest cross-platform solution to work with
[4:34] <Sudsey> anyway, let's get back on track, shall we? xD
[4:34] <Sudsey> does anyone have experience with vsftpd? xD
[4:34] <SirLagz> nope, but i could spin up a VM and mess around with it tonight...maybe

[4:35] <SirLagz> i used vsftpd last time i used ftp
[4:35] <Sudsey> haha if you manage to suss it out in an evening I will be impressed
[4:35] <SirLagz> though it was very badly configured

[4:40] <Sudsey> it's empty

[4:41] <Sudsey> that's a good idea, actually

[4:42] <Sudsey> http://pastebin.com/RNq6W4HR
[4:42] <amigojapan> let me see
[4:43] <Sudsey> okay, so I think I've set up anons as I need them to be (no password, 10KBps, read-only), SSL, and userlist denial to every user except admin
[4:44] <Sudsey> I'm not sure if I've set up chroot properly, I need nothing to be able to leave /srv/ftp/

[4:45] <amigojapan> ok Sudsey ans what is the problem?

[4:46] <Sudsey> it's like a half-constructed frankenstein

[4:47] * hybr1d8 (~cjd@ Quit (Quit: Leaving.)
[4:47] * hybr1d8 (~cjd@ has joined #raspberrypi
[4:47] <Sudsey> I need anons to have no password, read-only access, inability to leave /srv/ftp/, and a transfer limit of 10KBps
[4:47] <amigojapan> Sudsey: I already heard, you want anonymous users and admin... all I can think is you might want to create the admion user
[4:47] <Sudsey> I think I've done everything correctly except the third one
[4:47] <Sudsey> I've set admin as a virtual user
[4:48] <amigojapan> I dont know how or it you can limit the transfer rate
[4:48] <Sudsey> anon_max_rate=10000
[4:48] <Sudsey> that's in bytes/second
[4:48] <amigojapan> ok Sudsey so what else is the problem?
[4:48] <Sudsey> would chroot apply to anon users as well?
[4:49] <Sudsey> if not, how would I have it apply to it?
[4:49] <amigojapan> Sudsey: run the ftp server and try it out
[4:49] <amigojapan> log in as anon
[4:49] <Sudsey> okay, I'll wait until it's ready to test and we'll see
[4:50] <Sudsey> next bit that's not done properly is the userlist
[4:50] <amigojapan> brb
[4:50] <Sudsey> there's a list of users that are allowed to log into ftp, should a) anon be included and b) should the real user virtual be in there or the virtual user admin
[4:50] <Sudsey> alright
[4:51] <Sudsey> the real user virtual handles admin
[4:52] <espitz> anonymous users are restricted (chrooted) to anon_root
[4:52] <espitz> reading from docs...

[5:06] <amigojapan> Sudsey: try it out

[5:06] <amigojapan> Sudsey: try it with anon enabled and virtual users
[5:06] <espitz> from vsftpd FAQ: Q) Help! Does vsftpd support virtual users?
[5:06] <espitz> A) Yes, via PAM integration. Set "guest_enable=YES" in /etc/vsftpd.conf. This
[5:06] <espitz> has the effect of mapping every non-anonymous successful login to the local
[5:06] <espitz> username specified in "guest_username". Then, use PAM and (e.g.) its pam_userdb
[5:06] <Sudsey> okay, I need the home directory of every user to be /srv/ftp/, but each non-anon has their own private directory
[5:06] <espitz> module to provide authentication against an external (i.e. non-/etc/passwd)

[5:21] <devslash> what kind of controller will work with it
[5:22] <espitz> well theoretically any with GPIO
[5:22] <espitz> but easier options are usb controllers
[5:22] <devslash> i might have a usb controller
[5:22] <espitz> like logitech f310
[5:22] <espitz> can buy them for maybe $20
[5:22] <espitz> or less on ebay

[5:23] <espitz> rpi has trouble delivering enough power to the onboard usb ports
[5:23] <vandymcnew> Im in the same boat. My pi should be here by the weekend and I have no idea what to do with it.
[5:24] <devslash> i have a powered usb hub
[5:24] <devslash> i was using it to power an external hard drive storing the media that I used for my media server
[5:25] <espitz> or if you're more adventurous you can get an old SNES controller and wire it to the GPIO
[5:25] <espitz> there are plenty of tutorials online for that

[5:25] <espitz> using the rpi as a media station is also popular
[5:26] <espitz> using xbmc

[5:26] <amigojapan> not on my rpi, but on my PC, I have found htat xbox 360 USB controllers, are very high quality, I was not able to play ocntra until I bought them
[5:26] <espitz> can even get a remote for it :)

[5:27] <vandymcnew> espitz a buddy of mine does that. I was thinking that might be a good option for a first project.
[5:27] <Sudsey> okay, anonymous works, but not admin
[5:27] <Sudsey> I get GnuTLS error -15: An unexpected TLS packet was received. on filezilla after the password is given
[5:27] <SirLagz> so don't use admin ?
[5:28] <Sudsey> :I
[5:28] <Sudsey> not sure if trolling
[5:28] <espitz> which one vandymcnew?
[5:28] <SirLagz> Sudsey: why do you need the admin user ?
[5:29] <Sudsey> admin is going to have full r/w while anon will only have read
[5:29] <vandymcnew> espitz: media controller
[5:29] <espitz> ahh yeah
[5:29] <SirLagz> so will everyone have admin access then ?
[5:29] <espitz> I would say it's the #2 use of an rpi
[5:29] <Sudsey> admin is passworded
[5:29] <vandymcnew> espitz: what do you think is #1?
[5:30] <Sudsey> they're the only two users that can be connected with
[5:30] <espitz> retro game console :)
[5:30] <vandymcnew> ahh
[5:30] <SirLagz> Sudsey: so why not password anon and give anon r/w access ?

[5:31] <Sudsey> SirLagz: because I want people to be able to download things from the server but not upload
[5:31] <Sudsey> I feel like you're trolling me
[5:31] <SirLagz> Sudsey: no, i'm suggestion options that are options
[5:32] <Sudsey> riiiight
[5:32] <SirLagz> Sudsey: I have no idea how it's going to be used so I'm just firing off suggestions to the problems that you're having
[5:32] <Sudsey> haha, alright
[5:33] <Sudsey> admin is going to have full r/w access to everything inside /srv/ftp/ and have its own private folder, and is passworded
[5:33] <SirLagz> uh huh
[5:33] <Sudsey> anon has no password, can only read and cannot access admin's folder
[5:33] <SirLagz> uh huh

[5:33] <PRC-1989> Hey guys!
[5:33] <SirLagz> have you tried creating another user with admin rights and not using the default admin account ?
[5:33] <PRC-1989> Anyone able to help me with a network problem?
[5:33] <Sudsey> SirLagz: admin is a virtual user
[5:34] <SirLagz> I don't remember how vsftpd comes configured by default so that may or may not be an option
[5:34] <PRC-1989> My RasPi drops the ethernet connection every time I use it.
[5:34] <SirLagz> PRC-1989: tried a different power supply ?
[5:34] <PRC-1989> As is if I ping it pings it once and then kills itself
[5:34] <PRC-1989> Yes, I have.

[5:34] <Sudsey> you must die
[5:34] <PRC-1989> Also tried different ethernet cable
[5:34] <SirLagz> PRC-1989: does the Pi still have an IP address when it dies ?
[5:35] <SirLagz> Sudsey: create a new virtual user with admin rights and try with that ?
[5:35] <PRC-1989> Nope.
[5:35] <SirLagz> PRC-1989: does dmesg show anything interesting ?
[5:35] * JMichaelX (~james@unaffiliated/jmichaelx) has joined #raspberrypi
[5:35] <PRC-1989> I actually assigned a static IP
[5:35] <Sudsey> SirLagz: what exactly would that accomplish
[5:35] <Sudsey> if I can't get one to work then I won't be able to get another to work eithre
[5:35] <Sudsey> either*
[5:36] <SirLagz> Sudsey: you'd be surprised how setting something up from scratch can reveal things you've missed.
[5:36] <Sudsey> true
[5:36] <PRC-1989> What shoul I look for in dmesg?
[5:37] <SirLagz> PRC-1989: reboot the Pi, run dmesg after it boots, do a ping, run dmesg again and see if anything new comes up
[5:37] <SirLagz> Sudsey: and it's always good to get some practice in.

[5:39] <PRC-1989> SirLagz, there's an interesting side effect I'm having.
[5:39] <PRC-1989> Every time the eth dies, my usb keyboard mouse also die
[5:40] <PRC-1989> And it comes on when the eth comes back on

[5:40] <SirLagz> PRC-1989: do you have a multimeter ?

[5:40] <SirLagz> power, dodgey x1 crystal
[5:40] <SirLagz> heat
[5:40] <PRC-1989> So it's not a software issue.
[5:41] <SirLagz> i doubt it
[5:41] <PRC-1989> So the only thing I can do is change the pi.
[5:41] <PRC-1989> That's good, I bought in only yesterday.
[5:41] <SirLagz> or get a multimeter and measure power across TP1 and TP2
[5:41] <SirLagz> what sort of power supply are you using ?
[5:41] <PRC-1989> 5v 1a
[5:41] <SirLagz> genuine 5V 1A though A
[5:41] <SirLagz> ?
[5:42] <SirLagz> a lot of cheap power supplies says they can do that, but they can't
[5:42] <PRC-1989> How would I know if it's genuine?
[5:42] <SirLagz> where did you buy it from ?

[5:42] <PRC-1989> I'm in China, btw.
[5:43] <SirLagz> i wouldn't count on it being able to supply 5V 1A then
[5:43] <SirLagz> yea, i figured you were in china lol
[5:43] <PRC-1989> oh ffs
[5:43] <PRC-1989> Lost my iPhone charger.
[5:43] <SirLagz> so you bought this for 3 yuan ?
[5:43] <PRC-1989> 15
[5:44] <SirLagz> ok thats not so bad then lol...
[5:44] <PRC-1989> I think it's genuine.
[5:44] <PRC-1989> It's got a Samsung logo
[5:44] <SirLagz> but i still wouldn't count it to provide 5V 1A
[5:44] <SirLagz> my HTC charger that I got from China isn't genuine but still has a HTC logo on it :P
[5:45] <PRC-1989> Where'd you buy it?
[5:45] <SirLagz> hong kong
[5:45] <PRC-1989> Found my iPhone charger!
[5:45] <SirLagz> use that
[5:45] <PRC-1989> It's an HK socket, though.
[5:45] <PRC-1989> I'll try
[5:45] <SirLagz> iPhone charger would definitely pump out more power

[5:50] <SirLagz> nice
[5:50] * Heimskur is now known as Besoffen
[5:50] <SirLagz> howd u fix it ?
[5:50] <Sudsey> I enabled writable chroot
[5:50] <Sudsey> it works, but it's not configured as I need it
[5:51] <PRC-1989> Well, now the usb key/mouse won't even work.
[5:51] <Sudsey> I think writable chroot might be a bit bandaid, so once it works I might go reconfigure it entirely or just tweak it and configure it properly
[5:51] <PRC-1989> And the eth lights are all dead and don't even come on.
[5:51] <SirLagz> PRC-1989: get a new Pi.
[5:51] <PRC-1989> Bloody hell.
[5:51] <SirLagz> PRC-1989: or a multimeter so at least we can begin diagnosing.
[5:52] <PRC-1989> I have to go over 50km to get that pi
[5:52] <PRC-1989> Why does this always happen to me?

[5:53] <PRC-1989> It would only help diagnosing, the problem is obviously hardware related.
[5:54] <SirLagz> PRC-1989: it could be that your USB cable could be buggered too
[5:54] <SirLagz> have you tried a new USB cable ?
[5:54] <PRC-1989> orly?
[5:54] <PRC-1989> Nope.
[5:54] <SirLagz> try that
[5:55] <PRC-1989> Are multimeters expensive?
[5:55] <Sudsey> okay, so it almost works as expected

[6:03] <espitz> what you need an MM for? for about the same price you can just buy another PI :)
[6:04] <SirLagz> buy another pi...and then find out that the USB cable isn't up to scratch ?
[6:05] <espitz> but then you'll have your answer and two pies!

[6:08] <SirLagz> indeedy
[6:08] <espitz> GST is 10% or so?
[6:08] <SirLagz> yep

[6:35] <espitz> and at least 5V 500mA adapter I'm assuming?
[6:35] <shiftplusone> espitz, if the PWR light is on it means the 3.3v regulator is at least doing something. The pi can boot with 3.3v, so it would fail a little later. This usually indicated an SD card issue rather than power. But it's always worth checking anyway.
[6:35] <espitz> preferably 1000mA
[6:35] <PRC-1989_> 5v 1a
[6:35] <espitz> q was for trickyhero PRC

[6:40] <trickyhero> welp I have to find a new power supply thanks for the help guys

[6:41] <PRC-1989_> @shiftplusone, good sir, how much should the reading have said?
[6:42] <shiftplusone> PRC-1989_, close to 5V +/- 0.2v
[6:42] <PRC-1989_> Does that indicate a power supply problem?
[6:42] <espitz> you could also try unplugging everything trickyhero... all peripheral, etc.. to see what happens
[6:42] <shiftplusone> PRC-1989_, could be power supply, the cable you are using and/or the polyfuse.
[6:43] <espitz> but according to raspi FAQ even the model A needs 500mA with no peripherals connected
[6:43] <PRC-1989_> Is there any way I can test the power supply using my multimeter?
[6:43] <shiftplusone> espitz, that's because giving the worst case scenario is safer.
[6:43] <espitz> so you're probably better off just finding a proper PS first
[6:44] <espitz> I make no argument shift
[6:44] * KindOne (KindOne@colchester-lug/silly-fool/donut) has joined #raspberrypi
[6:44] <espitz> but finding a proper PS will be necessary regardless... 200mA is useuless
[6:44] <shiftplusone> not an argument either, just saying whey they put 500mA there rather than the actual value, heh.
[6:45] <shiftplusone> PRC-1989_, the output of the power supply will depend on the load. So if you manage to measure the output of the supply with no load, it won't tell you much. It's kind of hard to measure close to the supply while you have a pi powered up as well.

[6:45] <shiftplusone> PRC-1989_, it's easier to eliminate the polyfuse and the cable.
[6:46] <shiftplusone> Measure the voltage across F3 and try a few different cables
[6:46] <shiftplusone> if the neither account for the low voltage, it has to be the supply

[6:52] <espitz> I've seen reports of people overclocking to ridiculous level with passive or active cooling
[6:52] <shiftplusone> espitz, you know the SoC is under the RAM chip, right?
[6:52] <espitz> 1200MHz ARM
[6:54] <espitz> let me rephrase... I ordered a 14x14x10mm copper pin fin heatsink for the broadcom chip - whatever that has on/under it :)
[6:54] <shiftplusone> those are ahm.... cosmetic.
[6:55] <shiftplusone> but let me know how you go with it. I'd like to see an objective comparison of the temperatures.
[6:55] <espitz> and smaller ones for the VR and ethernet controller
[6:55] * Besoffen is now known as JMichaelX
[6:55] <espitz> why are they cosmetic?
[6:56] <espitz> it certainly gets warm to the touch
[6:56] <espitz> I'd have to imagine it will lower the temp by at least a few degrees... but I'm hoping more
[6:57] <shiftplusone> because it goes on the RAM rather than the chip you actually want to cool. Try using some cardboard instead of thermal paste on your desktop and see how you go.
[6:57] <shiftplusone> a few degrees, yeah
[6:57] <espitz> I assume with overvolt settings, the heat will increase, even on the ram
[6:58] <espitz> am i nuts?
[6:58] <shiftplusone> I say do some experimenting
[6:58] <espitz> lol @ cardboard
[6:58] <espitz> you know the first time I ever installed my own heatsink on a PC
[6:58] * rihnapstor (~rihnapsto@unaffiliated/rihnapstor) has joined #raspberrypi
[6:58] <espitz> I didnt use thermal paste - I didnt know
[6:58] <espitz> chip fried in 45 seconds
[6:58] <shiftplusone> The people who designed the hardware are against the heatsinks and insist they are not require and ineffective. I say that if you really need cooling for silly overclocking, use a fan (ont he underside of the pi)
[6:59] <shiftplusone> jesus... I didn't know thermal paste made that much of a difference >_<
[6:59] <espitz> it definitely does
[6:59] <espitz> that was probably a PII CPU I did that too
[6:59] <espitz> but I dont know anymore
[6:59] <espitz> it was so long ago
[7:00] <shiftplusone> I used to leave old dried up thermal paste the CPU without re-applying new paste and didn't run into any issues.
[7:00] <espitz> haha
[7:01] <espitz> I do overclock everything
[7:01] <shiftplusone> about to put max load on the CPU and log the temp at 1GHz
[7:01] <espitz> I'm against arbitrary limits :)

[7:01] <PRC-1989_> @shiftplusone, I'm very sorry for the stupid question, but what parts should I touch to measure the F3?
[7:01] <shiftplusone> the opposite sides of it.
[7:01] <PRC-1989_> I'm touching the metallic parts on the back of the board that are in a rectangle that say F3 next to it
[7:02] <PRC-1989_> But can't get any reading
[7:02] <espitz> shiftplusone - maybe old thermal paste is good enough. I mean the idea is just to have maximum contact between sink and chip, so that little (or preferably no) air can get between
[7:03] <shiftplusone> are you getting 0 or what?
[7:03] <PRC-1989_> 0
[7:03] <PRC-1989_> And momentarily 0.16 when I wobble it around a bit.
[7:03] <shiftplusone> .16 is highish, but not enough to justify such a low voltage.
[7:03] <natewalck> is it worth OCing the pi?
[7:04] <PRC-1989_> Sooo,,,, what does rhat mean?
[7:04] <shiftplusone> natewalck, depends. Makes the GUI a bit smoother. Good for emulators and such as well. But overall... not really.
[7:04] <natewalck> Are there any Web Browsers that work fully accelerated?
[7:04] <natewalck> and HTML5, etc?
[7:04] <shiftplusone> PRC-1989_, what does what mean, sorry?
[7:04] <PRC-1989_> the 0.16 reading
[7:04] <shiftplusone> natewalck, not properly released yet, but there is one available for testing. Called 'web'.
[7:05] <PRC-1989_> Is that an indication that the wire is broken?
[7:05] <PRC-1989_> Or the polyfuse?
[7:05] <natewalck> Hrmm
[7:05] <PRC-1989_> Or the supply?

[7:10] <espitz> and the plastic cover over the GPU card started to change color after several months of that

[7:10] <shiftplusone> I suppose I should play a video on the gpu at the same time
[7:10] <espitz> heat sinks arent going to hurt... so I'll test temps with and without
[7:10] <SirLagz> when it changes colour, that's when you should stop using it so much :P
[7:12] <espitz> I've heard people say they can run the ARM at 1000-1200MHz, 500MHz core, 500MHz ram, +8V/+6V overvolt on CPU/RAM
[7:12] <espitz> not sure if that was with active cooling or what
[7:12] <espitz> but I'm determined to find out :)
[7:12] <SirLagz> active cooling doesn't do as much for ARM cpus as people think it does
[7:12] <SirLagz> according to some of the people who made it
[7:13] <[Saint]> it does in this case when you need to keep it below 85C to keep the OC up
[7:13] <shiftplusone> so far I've only noticed that the pi doesn't work when I go above 450MHz SDRAM
[7:13] <[Saint]> but, thats just silly.
[7:13] <rihnapstor> guys my end user app goes like this.. flask web app. restful web service outputs json.now I am interested in providing bidirectional communication support between end user and raspbery pi.(through web sockets). so should I initialize user page with executable js script to restful web service ?
[7:13] <SirLagz> [Saint]: i wouldn't know, i dont OC my Pi lol
[7:14] <[Saint]> I stopped trying ages ago.
[7:14] <[Saint]> I tried pushing it for fun initially just to see what they can do.
[7:14] <shiftplusone> so... loading the CPU and GPU at the same time doesn't affect temperature that much here... +7C at 1GHz
[7:14] <espitz> I dont think it's silly
[7:14] <[Saint]> But it depends on the individual board a LOT
[7:14] <espitz> I use mine as an emulator for all kinds of games
[7:14] <espitz> some need the OC to play properly
[7:15] <[Saint]> I have one pi that just absolutely will not run stable at even 1GHz
[7:15] <espitz> mine wont right now
[7:15] <[Saint]> let alone any higher.
[7:15] <espitz> 900MHz is best I can do
[7:15] <espitz> I have GPU at 350MHz
[7:15] <[Saint]> I can do 1.2 reasonably reliably on one pi.
[7:16] <shiftplusone> [Saint], do you think temperature has an affect there. There was some guy insisting that the pi becomes unstable due to temperature, rather than the actual clock rate itself.

[7:17] <[Saint]> at 1GHz and under I rarely break 54°C, and we know they're fine with higher temps.
[7:17] <shiftplusone> Yeah, didn't think so. He kept insisting the pi is very sensitive to temperature. Took a while to get out of him that he never actually checked the temperature and only assumed that he can't overclock much due to the temp rise
[7:17] <[Saint]> :)
[7:18] <[Saint]> the problem is "I felt the chip, it feels hot"
[7:18] <[Saint]> When "hot" to a human is ~45C
[7:19] <shiftplusone> espitz was guilty of that one just then >_<
[7:19] <SirLagz> shiftplusone: who was this person who insisted the pi is sensitive to temperature ?
[7:19] <shiftplusone> SirLagz, a guy in #raspbian about a month back. Don't remember the nick.
[7:19] <SirLagz> I'm pretty sure James and Dom ? maybe Gert ? I don't remember, but they said something along the lines of the warmer the better for the Pi lol
[7:19] <SirLagz> up to a certain point anyway

[7:21] <espitz> I said warm
[7:21] <SirLagz> across F3 as in TP2 - F3 ?
[7:21] <espitz> I was only implying that if there's some heat, a heatsink will reduce it
[7:21] <[Saint]> and a massive LCD...
[7:21] <PRC-1989_> On the back the f3 rectangle
[7:21] <SirLagz> measure either side of F3 to TP2 and see if there's difference
[7:21] <[Saint]> people never seem to think their phones need cooling :)
[7:21] <espitz> and I'm at a whopping 54.6C with CPU at full load

[7:28] <[Saint]> And no, seriously.
[7:28] <espitz> 900Mhz works ok for my purposes
[7:28] <[Saint]> This sounds defective.
[7:28] <espitz> it;s the GPU I really need to increase
[7:29] <[Saint]> If it can't even boot with settings it allows out of the tin, i would've sent it back.
[7:29] <[Saint]> manufacturing defect.
[7:29] <[Saint]> "instability" is expected. somewhat.
[7:30] <espitz> I'm going to fiddle and see if I cant find a working combination
[7:30] <[Saint]> but instability and not being able to get through a boot at all are different things to me.
[7:30] <espitz> If i could get GPU to 350MHz or so, that might be good enough
[7:30] <espitz> yeah I agree
[7:30] <espitz> its not really instability
[7:30] * [Saint] doesn't think increasing anything is the answer here.

[11:49] <monkers> on the subject of faster video streaming... what if i made a network share on a webserver, and had raspistill or raspivid write to the network share (as opposed to streaming over rtmp).
[11:49] <monkers> i wonder if that'd be better, or just more overheard
[11:49] <monkers> overhead
[11:50] <neilr> Depends on the protocol you use to access the share. If you're using Samba for example, I would guess there's more overhead. I can't prove this, but that's my instinct.
[11:51] <monkers> could i avoid disk i/o alltogether by just streaming and then rebroadcasting?

[12:35] <Bozza> Is there a virtual modem equivalent that runs in software? Those modems are ancient .. I am sure a CPU would be able to handle it
[12:36] <pksato> and use virtual connection?
[12:36] <Bozza> If I do find a usb 56 k modem .. The problem would be routing it through gsm .. Since those usually connect straight to your phone line
[12:36] <pksato> find a cell phone with modem. (most old gsm have)
[12:36] <azeam> am I really the only one having constant problems upgrading the firmware on my RPi? Every time I've upgraded in the last year and a half, I can no longer boot, the only way is to copy old (backed up) files from the boot partition, after upgrading again some files won't be there (in the boot partition, at least this time it's the bootcode.bin missing) and/or it simply won't boot. I'm only upgrading through the main Raspbian repository (raspberrypi-bo
[12:36] <azeam> otloader, using apt-get), if it would be possible to find the files for the current stable firmware it would be easy to just copy the files from there but all I'm able to find is the unstable repository (https://github.com/raspberrypi/firmware) so I'm forced to use the old backed up files, which now no longer seem to work very well either...
[12:37] <pksato> some need a hardware modification.
[12:37] <Bozza> Pksato is there really no such thing as a software modem?

[12:39] <pksato> search for soundmodem
[12:39] <Bozza> Remember the 56 k modems that made those nice sounds?
[12:40] <Bozza> I am looking for a software that can do everything a 56k modem can do
[12:40] <Bozza> But on the CPU
[12:40] <ShorTie> that was just a speaker that could be turned off
[12:40] * Bozza face palms
[12:40] <Bozza> That isn't the point

[12:41] <Bozza> Ahh ok
[12:41] <ShorTie> and it would most likely be easier to dial with clicks instead of tones
[12:41] <Bozza> :)
[12:42] <ShorTie> like the old rotary phones
[12:42] <Bozza> Shortie the bandwidth on a mobile voice channel is much smaller than on a landline connection

[12:55] <amigojapan> hehehe nice Bozza , pretty nostalgic
[12:55] <Bozza> :)
[12:55] <amigojapan> Bozza: I had a friend that tested to see if his BBS had not frozzen by faking the sound of a modem with his voice
[12:55] <Bozza> Cool! Hahah did it work?

[12:56] <Bozza> Nice
[12:56] <Bozza> Very nice XD that is incredible

[12:57] <amigojapan> yep :)
[12:57] <amigojapan> Bozza: it was (if I recall correctly) a 2400MBPS modem, which had a pretty simple sound

[12:58] <Bozza> Still. Those are quite the skills

[13:02] <Bozza> That is incredible
[13:02] <Bozza> The idea of sending data over acoustic / analog lines
[13:03] <Kemosabe> he set up an acoustic modem
[13:03] <Kemosabe> on either end
[13:03] <Kemosabe> http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/e/e5/Analogue_modem_-_acoustic_coupler.jpg
[13:03] <Bozza> That is like using a delivery pigeon with a usb stick
[13:03] <Kemosabe> like this shit
[13:03] <Bozza> Wow, those are super retro
[13:04] <Kemosabe> yeah he put on on either end of a regular phone call
[13:04] <Kemosabe> and then used his work internet at home
[13:04] <Bozza> Was fortunate enough to grow up with dial up but real Internet
[13:04] <Kemosabe> man i had dial up as a kid
[13:04] <Kemosabe> but then we got broadband

[13:25] <Bozza> Man
[13:25] <Bozza> Maybe let the cook eat some first?

[14:34] <crapp> i need microsecond precision to control a sensor from my pi. to what extend does this work with raspbian and c++. I need to what 280µs to do something and after that another 40 µs do to do something else. I suppose 40µs is not realistic with a raspberry pi?!
[14:35] <amigojapan> crapp: how about using an arduino instead? it is real time cause it does not do multitasking like the pi
[14:36] <crapp> amigojapan: I need a raspberry pi. All I could do is using just a mikrocontroller and perform the needed tasks there and do the rest on my pi
[14:36] <gordonDrogon> crapp, marginal on the Pi to get down to 1�S.
[14:37] <gordonDrogon> is it 1�S output or input?
[14:37] <amigojapan> crapp: well, the pi, since it multitasks cannot guarranty that things will happen on time....

[14:41] <amigojapan> crapp: how about networking a 328p with the pi... have the time-dependent code run on the 328p?
[14:41] <crapp> gordonDrogon: I set a pin high and have to wait 280µs afterwards. then I ask a adc via i2c to measure the output of the sensor. meanwhile I set the pin to low after another 40µs. after one measurement i'll wait another ~9800µs and start over
[14:41] * rjanja (~rjanja@ Quit (Ping timeout: 240 seconds)
[14:42] <gordonDrogon> the timings are do-able, but Linux and the hardware will get in the way. You can run the task at high/real time priority to minimise the effects - the timings may be a bit longer though.
[14:42] <gordonDrogon> and and I2C transaction is really really slow by comparision.
[14:42] <crapp> amigojapan: thats a good idean, problem is I have no experience with mikrocontrollers and interfacing them with a pi. Ho would I do the interface? Writing the measurement code is trivial for me but I never did this on a mikrocotntroller
[14:42] * rjanja (~rjanja@066-241-071-228.ashlandfiber.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[14:42] <gordonDrogon> you'll be transmitting/rxing about 4-6 bytes at 100000 bps.
[14:43] <crapp> gordonDrogon: I also thought that using the adc via i2c maybe an additional bottleneck
[14:44] <crapp> seems like I have to use a mikrocontroller to do this reliable
[14:44] <gordonDrogon> if you want microseconds precision, then yes. if you can put-up with times sometimes a little longer, then the Pi can do it.
[14:44] <amigojapan> crapp: for real fast networking, you could copy the parallel networking scheme I used in my arduino retro computer TV , cause it can transfer one byte at a time , faster than i2c http://amigojapan.github.io/Arduino-Retro-Computer-TV/
[14:46] <crapp> gordonDrogon: I will simply give it a try. I have a different working the sensor to gather the same data, so it is easy to compare the data afterwards

[17:28] <espitz> depends on what you're planning to do with it, J_Darnley
[17:29] <espitz> will it just be connected to your PI only?
[17:29] <espitz> are you using it for file shares or anything?
[17:29] <espitz> I'd say ext4 is probably going to give you the best read/write speeds
[17:30] <espitz> but if you're planning to move the drive around (i.e. to a Windows system or something) you might want to use FAT32
[17:30] * nitdega (nitdega@2602:306:2421:8d71:b58c:c6b3:fde1:6af8) has joined #raspberrypi
[17:31] <J_Darnley> It is supposed to act as my first NAS and perhaps have some remote access
[17:31] <J_Darnley> It is a 1TB drive though so FAT32 won't work will it?
[17:31] * teh3ck (~teh3ck@2a00:d880:0:10::6a3e:b565) has joined #raspberrypi
[17:33] <espitz> I'd go with ext4
[17:34] <uid69> I just plugged in a NTFS drive into my Pi..
[17:35] <espitz> NTFS will be MUCH slower
[17:35] <J_Darnley> Its got ntfs at present but I plan on formatting it
[17:35] <espitz> probably half the write speed, if it not worse
[17:35] <espitz> and yes, that's way above the limit for FAT32

[17:41] <espitz> there are some windows utilities that will allow you to use an ext3 formatted drive on a win machine - if you plan to move it around
[17:41] <espitz> not sure if that exists for ext4 though
[17:41] <gordonDrogon> if you use the Pi as a nas, then ext4 is fine - you just need to run nfs/samba to allow external devices to access it.
[17:42] <espitz> I'd say ext4 is preferred, no?
[17:42] * EastLight (n@0544cf88.skybroadband.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[17:42] <espitz> you should be able to get maybe 9MB/s write speeds, or thereabouts, accessing samba shares from a win machine

[18:37] <espitz> that's software-based, no?

[18:38] * kzard (~kzard@41-134-83-186.dsl.mweb.co.za) Quit (Ping timeout: 252 seconds)
[18:38] <gordonDrogon> yes, it's a library written in C.
[18:39] <espitz> I think he's looking for the opposite approach... that is he wants the GPIO to notify the OS
[18:39] <espitz> not software to poll the GPIO first
[18:39] <espitz> ... if that makes sense
[18:39] <gordonDrogon> something has to listen for the interrupt.....
[18:40] <gordonDrogon> you need to tell the OS what to do when the interrupt fires.
[18:40] <gordonDrogon> and wiringPi allows you to vector that interrupt to a user-defined function.
[18:40] <espitz> the thread I posted has the opposite approach - check it out
[18:40] <gordonDrogon> my code uses the principle in the thread you posted about.
[18:41] <gordonDrogon> you write a program.. in the program you wait for an interrupt.... time passes ... the interrupt fires and your program wakes up and carries on.

[18:43] * sco` (~ross2@unaffiliated/sco/x-3425046) has joined #raspberrypi
[18:43] <gordonDrogon> it's possible that x4i sees the use of the poll() system call. This may be confusing as it's not a busy poll - it deschedulles the process and waits for the action in a non-busy manner.

[18:44] * trickyhero (~Deitrick@d4-50-215-4.try.wideopenwest.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[18:44] <gordonDrogon> in wiringPi you can either wait for the interrupt - which blocks your program, or put that in a thread - which blocks that thread, letting the rest of your program run, or use the 'isr' function in wiringPi to register a function to be called when the interrupt happens. Your program then runs but when the interrupt fires, the named function is executed.
[18:45] <espitz> haha... you're the writer of wiringpi... missed that
[18:46] <gordonDrogon> Yup :)
[18:46] <espitz> should have recognized the name
[18:46] <espitz> my mistake
[18:47] <gordonDrogon> no probs :)
[18:47] * theaftermath (~theafterm@unaffiliated/theaftermath) has joined #raspberrypi
[18:47] <espitz> the approach is still slightly different though
[18:47] <gordonDrogon> I don't think so - its what I do in wiringPi.
[18:47] <espitz> am I mistaken?

[18:48] * linuxstb (~linuxstb@unaffiliated/linuxstb) Quit (Quit: This computer has gone to sleep)
[18:48] <gordonDrogon> you basically try to read the pin and that read is blocked until the interrupt fires.
[18:48] * ponA (~Miranda@HSI-KBW-095-208-008-139.hsi5.kabel-badenwuerttemberg.de) has joined #raspberrypi
[18:48] <espitz> wiringpi effectively polls the GPIO.. so you can only get an interrupt when it's being polled
[18:48] <espitz> that's not hugely different
[18:48] * supermat (max@unaffiliated/supermat) has left #raspberrypi
[18:48] <gordonDrogon> no - you are mistaken.
[18:48] <gordonDrogon> it does not poll the pin. it waits on the pin.
[18:48] <espitz> but if many interrupts per second, wiringpi could miss
[18:48] <gordonDrogon> big difference.
[18:49] <gordonDrogon> it uses the poll() system call. This does not do a busy-loop poll, it tells the kernel to wait for data to be available.
[18:49] <espitz> then when does it go back to waiting?
[18:49] <gordonDrogon> it can handle about 66K interrupts/sec.
[18:49] <espitz> after it executes xyz on an interrupt?
[18:50] <gordonDrogon> if your program wants that, then yes.
[18:50] <espitz> I see
[18:50] <espitz> so not terribly different then
[18:50] * Yachtsman (~Yachtsman@174-145-63-251.pools.spcsdns.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[18:50] <gordonDrogon> very different! It uses ZERO cpu while waiting.

[20:31] <uid69> espitz: I got a friend using that same case - looks like it does the job
[20:32] <espitz> I like it because it's fully enclosed
[20:32] <mgottschlag> it's funny how all those cases make the vc jtag header accessible - although it is totally useless
[20:32] <espitz> I use mine as a retro game emulator - like to be able to move it around easily without fear of messing up something on the PCB
[20:32] <uid69> gordonDrogon: that's pretty neato
[20:33] <espitz> it might be usable some day, mgottschlag
[20:33] <mgottschlag> ah, no, wait... that amazon link simply shows a picture of a case which has been incorrectly assembled :D
[20:34] <uid69> I'm not sure if I like the fully enclosed or not. The semi enclosed looks cool and might be better for potential cooling isues if they ever arise.
[20:34] <ztaale> i have that case uid69
[20:34] <ztaale> :)
[20:35] <uid69> My Pi is chilling on a self and rarely gets touched since I only remote into it.
[20:35] <mgottschlag> I'd prefer the fully enclosed, but then I happen to regularly through screws or other metallic pieces around on my desk, which might cause shorts :)

[20:35] <espitz> well I'm undecided on cooling issues honestly
[20:35] <espitz> but there's plenty of slits/vents on that clear case
[20:36] <espitz> it's enclosed, but doesnt completely lack air circulation
[20:36] <espitz> there's about 18 1/2 in slits on the bottom too
[20:36] <espitz> centered around the SoC
[20:37] <rikkib> RPi work fine in a fully enclosed metal case
[20:37] <uid69> not much more slash or dust prevention than a semi enclosed case.

[21:13] <Werel> newark site
[21:13] <uid69> Setting up your own card might save a few.
[21:13] <Mindkontrol> Dont worry about noobs card
[21:13] <Werel> I'm fine with paying six dolasrs for a SD card
[21:13] <Werel> If I were to get an SD card locally, it would cost at least 9 dollars.
[21:14] <Mindkontrol> Werel: shrug, suit yourself, NOOBs didnt work for me, I ended up having to grab an OS online
[21:14] <johnc-> I paid much more for my SD cards
[21:14] <Werel> I can always flash it :) It would fit all on 8GB, woudln't it?
[21:14] <johnc-> but then, I don't get a corrupted filesystem when overclocked :)
[21:14] <Mindkontrol> I get them free
[21:14] <Mindkontrol> Lost and found phones

[21:44] <Werel> about that.. I find I'm not too interested in the pi camera module, provided I'm willing to use the USB plug ( or with a hub ) , a usb generic cam should work just as wel?
[21:47] <uid69> I've heard the USB hub ain't the greatest and the pi camera module can preform a bit better.. downside of module is that it doesn't come with a fancy stand or anything but that's the fun of the pi.. making cases.. my camera mount and pi case are aall pieced together
[21:47] <espitz> depends on what you're doing - as always

[22:06] <KjetilK> so, my idea is to make a bunch of cameras, scatter them around the forest, but since the total bandwidth of LTE is still limited, they should submit if nothing is of interest
[22:07] <KjetilK> I think a full cell phone would make it too expensive
[22:07] <KjetilK> a tiny modem that could fit inside the case would be better :-)
[22:07] <uid69> you're going to have to get plans and devices.. that's not going to be cheap either
[22:07] <KjetilK> preferably with an external antenna connection, so we could potentially connect them to directional antennaes
[22:08] <KjetilK> yeah, but we might have a deal coming up with the largest telco here...
[22:08] <uid69> I'd get an oild cell pphone.. activate it for the day and run a live IP camera application.. zero setup.. constanty live quality streaming
[22:08] <uid69> direction attennas are $$$ too.
[22:08] <KjetilK> yeah, but it would be a kit that we could pass around different organizers
[22:08] <KjetilK> besides, they are possible to make :-)

[22:12] <KjetilK> actually, I don't know
[22:12] <uid69> ever geocache?
[22:13] <KjetilK> there's a GPS with a GPRS modem, cased together in a small case...

[22:14] <espitz> Virgin has one for $5/day... AT&T for $2/day
[22:15] <espitz> if they're idle they wont cost you anything
[22:15] <KjetilK> I think that would be the least of our concerns, we have one guy in the second largest telco too, albeit not that high up :-)
[22:16] <espitz> I dont know how far apart these things will be
[22:16] <espitz> but you could have a local network so to speak, and just one device with 4G connection
[22:16] <espitz> but number of cameras might be a problem too
[22:17] <espitz> given throughput limits of 3G anyway
[22:17] <Werel> I figure I'd toss it out there one last time, I don't suppose anyone knows any voucher codes for newark for the raspberry pi that are active? I'm gonna go through checkout and figured I'd ask around since I couldn't pull up anything on Google.

[22:25] * debenham (~cjd@ has joined #raspberrypi
[22:25] <KjetilK> but then the people in the club has a battery they don't need since they are organizing
[22:25] <KjetilK> uid69, it depends on the type of event
[22:26] <KjetilK> in a relay, there's a mass start, in most individual events, people rarely see each other
[22:26] <uid69> KjetilK: so partipants would be the primary viewer of the cameras out there?
[22:26] <KjetilK> uid69, yeah, you could say that :-)
[22:27] <KjetilK> also, the main sponsor was recently lost, we used to a have a big screen
[22:27] <uid69> i like the idea of strapping cameras to people.
[22:27] <KjetilK> yeah, it has been done
[22:27] <espitz> actually the RPI900 has a load switch that would allow you to remotely power down the Pi/Camera... that might help too
[22:27] <espitz> http://rpi900.com/hardware/features.html
[22:27] <KjetilK> they even tried real-time streaming, but that was rather much harder :-)

[22:29] <KjetilK> Gorroth, sorry (sincerely!)
[22:30] <Gorroth> Heheh
[22:30] <ppq> Blasphemy! He's said it again!
[22:30] <espitz> it's a package meant to provide long-range (~65km) connectivity between an RPi and other devices (including other RPIs)
[22:30] <espitz> in a nutshell, it's just an adapter board that attaches to the GPIO, and a wireless radio module
[22:31] <Gorroth> 65km? holy crap
[22:31] <KjetilK> (It is a huge relay in Finland, like 1600 teams, just the leading teams wear a GPS tracker. I was around 650 when I ran, IIRC)

[22:33] <KjetilK> "Data transmission rates of up to 500 kb/s are possible"
[22:33] <uid69> I gotta run. See ya later
[22:34] <espitz> there are limits to how much power you can transmit froma device in that band
[22:34] * KjetilK waves at uid69
[22:34] <espitz> but I don't think there are really any other major restrictions
[22:34] <KjetilK> I don't think 500 kb/s is sufficient to stream video, even without audio?
[22:34] <espitz> and honestly, if you're out in the woods - who's going to be checking? LOL
[22:34] <KjetilK> yeah
[22:35] <KjetilK> what the tele authority doesn't know doesn't hurt them :-)
[22:35] <espitz> good point kjetilk
[22:36] <espitz> although 500kbps is adequate for lower res streaming I'm sure
[22:36] <KjetilK> A friend of mine said that we should spec the bandwidth per unit at 2 Mb/s

[22:37] <KjetilK> ah
[22:37] <KjetilK> actually, my friend used to do that too
[22:37] <KjetilK> now he works for an IPTV middleware kinda company
[22:37] <espitz> I mean satellite bandwidth in C and Ku bands can cost $2500 to $5000 per MHz.

[22:39] * KjetilK nods
[22:39] <espitz> its just a thought
[22:39] <espitz> up to you to implement
[22:39] <espitz> lol
[22:40] <espitz> I still think LTE with a pay by the day plan is the way to go
[22:40] * KjetilK nods
[22:40] <espitz> unless you can work a deal
[22:40] <KjetilK> yeah, I think LTE should work fine
[22:40] <espitz> I assume these events are only a couple dozen times a year, and no more than a few days
[22:40] <KjetilK> yeah
[22:41] <espitz> a dozen cameras at $2 a day = $24 a day... times 36 days = $864/year
[22:41] <espitz> that's not bad
[22:41] <KjetilK> actually, the tech development we've done has got some nice press, including a full-page article in the Norwegian "Financial Times" equivalent
[22:41] <espitz> and the hardware will cost you what? maybe $100 per camera or so
[22:42] <KjetilK> yeah, something like that
[22:42] <Gorroth> espitz: Well, I think that sounds like some damn fine engineering for distance links. I should speak to my father about that and see if I can't setup something for his farm.
[22:42] <KjetilK> so, there's some hope we can use that to say something "we're going to put your LTE to a real test, and we need your help to publisize it"
[22:43] <espitz> they're very cheap too gorroth
[22:43] <espitz> at $45 per unit
[22:43] <KjetilK> anyway, that's something somebody else has to figure out
[22:43] <espitz> plus $40-50 for the pi and accessories
[22:43] <KjetilK> It seems like the first I should do is to buy a pi with cam
[22:44] <espitz> good place to start, kjetilk :)
[22:44] <KjetilK> and connect the modem and bluetooth to the USB
[22:44] <espitz> I would use the module made for the Pi
[22:44] * KjetilK nods
[22:44] <espitz> can do h.264 encoding on GPU
[22:44] <espitz> much faster
[22:44] <espitz> than any usb alternative
[22:44] <KjetilK> ah, great!
[22:44] <Gorroth> espitz: Yeah, what had held me back from really trying to provide anything for my dad is that his grain bins and things would have to become Internet-connected, and that's just not scalable.

[22:51] <KjetilK> I think they wouldn't be used at the same time
[22:52] <KjetilK> so the main reason for having them plugged in at the same time is to avoid opening the case

[22:54] <espitz> well it's not specified directly
[22:54] <espitz> but the polyfuse trips at 1.1A
[22:54] <espitz> so that would mean no more than 400mA through USB if the pi itself is drawing max current

[22:57] <KjetilK> found this: https://www.modmypi.com/nano-bluethooth-dongle
[22:57] <espitz> you could simply brdige F1 and F2 bypassing the polyfuse

[23:07] <espitz> what's wrong with java?
[23:07] <espitz> oh JS
[23:07] <espitz> nevermind
[23:08] <Nefarious___> Java's memory management is awful
[23:08] <Nefarious___> Java is hell
[23:08] <espitz> I disagree
[23:08] <espitz> was hell yes
[23:08] <espitz> but not the last couple years
[23:09] <Nefarious___> Hm?
[23:09] <shiftplusone> My only experience with java is as a user of stuff written in Java.... and it's all terrible.
[23:09] <espitz> they've made a LOT of improvements in the last couple years
[23:09] <espitz> specifically on garbage collection
[23:10] <espitz> I'm a little biased maybe

[23:10] <espitz> so everything else seems like extra work... lol
[23:11] <Nefarious___> I try to forget about my (limited) experience with Java

[23:11] <espitz> everyone is tainted by their "upbringing" I think
[23:11] * KjetilK tries Java every 4-5 years, ends up hating it every time...
[23:11] <Nefarious___> Yeah, I guess
[23:11] <GivenToCode> javas memory management is a result of decades of memory management research. I doubt you or anyone you know could do better
[23:11] <ppq> it is kind of fun to write java programs. but i don't want to do that to any user, no matter if/how they deserve it
[23:11] <espitz> lol... that's harsh giventocode
[23:12] <KjetilK> if not so much for the language, rather for the horrible, horrible stacks, Maven, Tomcat, Log4J was my major hate points the last time...
[23:12] <Nefarious___> GivenToCode: so what are you basing that on?
[23:12] <espitz> though I agree that the more current generations of java are really quite an improvement
[23:12] <shiftplusone> I started with vb6, but would consider myself as a copy/paste programmer back then. Got into actual programming with microcontrollers, so I like to have full control over everything, rather than trust a VM to take care of things.
[23:12] <espitz> and memory management is no longer something you have to worry about as much as you used ot
[23:12] * KjetilK started with GWBasic... :-)
[23:13] <espitz> well I guess I started with BASIC too
[23:13] <espitz> but I'm talking about real programming projects...
[23:13] <GivenToCode> I am basing that on my knowledge of developers not really knowing how to do memory management effectively
[23:13] <espitz> lolz.. .that's a true statement
[23:14] <KjetilK> nowadays, I don't want to do memory management effectively :-)
[23:14] <GivenToCode> and the incredible amount of research built in to the JVM
[23:14] <Nefarious___> I'm guessing you code in Java?
[23:14] <GivenToCode> essentially the JVM knows your code better than you do before you even write it
[23:15] <espitz> obviously he does... no one would rightly defend it otherwise...
[23:15] <Nefarious___> I know lol
[23:15] <GivenToCode> scala mostly
[23:15] <espitz> I dont mean that negatively, but why defend anything you dont use?
[23:15] <GivenToCode> came up on Java, have a bunch of python code in production
[23:15] <KjetilK> scala is interesting, except seeing people fire up a IDE to program scares me...
[23:15] <espitz> unless you're trolling, of course
[23:15] <GivenToCode> im just old, i've been around the block
[23:16] * mrclarinet (mrclarinet@ Quit (Ping timeout: 260 seconds)
[23:16] <J_Darnley> Java has a crap reputation in part thanks to its horrible browser plugins
[23:17] <J_Darnley> Not a week goes by these days without hearing about some exploit
[23:17] <GivenToCode> ha oh man, the Java ecosystem is so much bigger than browser plugins...
[23:18] <J_Darnley> True

[23:18] <J_Darnley> My STB is "powered by java" and it is also shit
[23:18] <NothingMn_______> the only thing keeping java alive is android ;)
[23:18] <espitz> that's so not true
[23:18] <shiftplusone> What's an example of good java software most people use and not because they have to but because it performs better than the alternatives written in C? (I am not saying it doesn't exist, but I am having a hard time coming up with anything)
[23:18] <Nefarious___> And even then there are ports to other languages
[23:18] <J_Darnley> Minecraft?
[23:19] <shiftplusone> J_Darnley, family friendly channel.
[23:19] <J_Darnley> Azureus, back when it was called Azureus?
[23:19] <rikkib> eclipse
[23:19] <J_Darnley> shiftplusone: okay
[23:19] <Nefarious___> Minecraft's coding is an abomination, apparently
[23:19] <shiftplusone> none of those perform better.
[23:19] <NothingMn_______> honestly debating why a language is good nor bad, without any given context is pretty futile
[23:20] <rikkib> All the main stream uses Eclipse now days
[23:20] <NothingMn_______> main stream what?

[23:20] <shiftplusone> rikkib, we use it, but we also grumble about it.
[23:20] <NothingMn> kinda pointless in making broad, unfounded claims

[23:21] <GivenToCode> shiftplusone, enter the world of server development, java dominates
[23:21] <NothingMn> GivenToCode I wouldnt go that far
[23:21] <NothingMn> got reputable stats to back that up?
[23:21] <GivenToCode> hadoop, storm, anything out of netflix or apache
[23:22] <shiftplusone> hmm
[23:22] * MrThePlague (~v4x@unaffiliated/v4x) Quit (Ping timeout: 260 seconds)

[23:23] <KjetilK> In my previous-previous job, I found that 1 in a 100 coders produced really good code in Java
[23:23] <Nefarious___> The bias is unbearable, I'm off ;)
[23:23] <KjetilK> the rest produced mostly rather bad stuff
[23:23] * trickyhero (~trickyher@d4-50-67-5.try.wideopenwest.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[23:23] <NothingMn> KjetilK, that goes for any language
[23:24] <KjetilK> in most other cases, the rest would still produce decent working code
[23:24] <KjetilK> NothingMn, actually, I don't think that's the case
[23:24] <NothingMn> and words like "good" and "decent" are pretty subjective
[23:24] <KjetilK> true
[23:24] <espitz> KjetilK: that's not a fault of the language
[23:24] <NothingMn> subjective and context sensitive
[23:24] <KjetilK> espitz, so, what *is* the problem then...?
[23:24] <NothingMn> for example...gaming..you wouldnt care about 5+ years of life..so you can cut corners for performance reasons
[23:25] <NothingMn> enterprise..its less about cutting corners and in terms of ROI and longevity & your ability to maintain the code base
[23:25] <NothingMn> the guy who wrote candy crush didnt consider IoC or TDD
[23:25] <NothingMn> ;)
[23:25] <KjetilK> I think the technical debt builds up much faster than that...
[23:27] <NothingMn> i would say the pace at which debt builds, would be directly porportionate to the architecture in place
[23:27] <NothingMn> ..and lack of requirements, scope, time, resources,..the usual fun stuff
[23:27] * KjetilK nods
[23:28] <KjetilK> I shouldn't be talking too much, since I haven't done that much Java (or that much coding for that matter, I've just coded for nearly 30 years, just not a lot in all that time)
[23:28] <shiftplusone> Well, that was an interesting read.
[23:29] <espitz> if anything the piss-poor coder problem is because the language has such an easy entry for would-be coders
[23:29] <KjetilK> but it seems to me that shortcuts you do in Java tend to be much more destructive than in any other language I've been writing in
[23:29] * owen_ (~owen@ has joined #raspberrypi
[23:29] <NothingMn> espitz and KjetilK the human problem is ..more.. of an issue for me
[23:30] <KjetilK> the company I worked in hired only people with master's and above, and only people with excellent grades....
[23:30] <NothingMn> ugh...such a narrow vision..IMHO
[23:30] <KjetilK> (I got in because of some, lets say, interestes...)
[23:30] <KjetilK> yeah, I tend to agree, I've worked with 17 year olds who dropped out of school to be really good coders
[23:30] <NothingMn> id probably not even want to work at a place with only people with masters degrees
[23:31] <espitz> just be clear, I wasn't advocating every program written in java
[23:31] <NothingMn> that would be terrible
[23:31] <espitz> I was advocating the language
[23:31] <NothingMn> java has its +'s..without a doubt
[23:31] <espitz> there's an important distinction there
[23:31] <NothingMn> ..so does .NET :)
[23:31] <NothingMn> well..C#
[23:31] <espitz> I agree
[23:31] <espitz> I like .net too actually
[23:32] <espitz> I worked on a cross-platform development framework targetted at building games
[23:32] <espitz> it was written primarily in java
[23:32] * pwh (~pwh@ec2-54-221-255-98.compute-1.amazonaws.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[23:32] <espitz> with some cpp
[23:32] <espitz> but the beauty of it is this
[23:33] <espitz> you build one application in java and you can deploy it on android, iphone, blackberry, windows, linux and GWT
[23:33] <NothingMn> might run like a dog with 2 legs and a skateboard..but it will work
[23:33] <NothingMn> ;)
[23:33] <espitz> it's called libgdx, if you have any interest - it's still going strong
[23:34] <espitz> and has literally hundreds of games/apps written with it
[23:34] <espitz> some you might have even used
[23:34] <espitz> just a small subset of them listed here: http://libgdx.badlogicgames.com/gallery.html
[23:35] <KjetilK> nice
[23:35] <espitz> some/most commercial entities don't want their games listed on the libgdx website.
[23:35] <espitz> but there are quite a few
[23:36] <espitz> in fact, you may find some of the devs frequenting the #libgdx channel on this server... lol
[23:37] <espitz> it runs quite well on most platforms... I haven't played with the iPhone/Blackberry stuff yet (that's kinda new)
[23:38] <espitz> but you can do some pretty impressive 3d rendering on the android and iPhones (and of course the desktop)
[23:38] <NothingMn> performance is pretty decent?
[23:38] <espitz> very good actually
[23:38] <espitz> esp with ogles 2.0
[23:38] <NothingMn> coo
[23:38] <espitz> everything that had terrible overhead in java was done with native libraries
[23:38] <espitz> but that's not a lot of stuff
[23:38] <NothingMn> thats always been the downside for Java with me...performance performance performance.
[23:39] <Gorroth> shiftplusone: Oh, they're working on some tutorials. We also have a wiki and things like that. But I thought your problem was that the landing page doesn't give enough info. Am I wrong?
[23:39] <espitz> but you dont have to worry about the "natives" really... just include them in your packages and their functionality is accessible through the java API
[23:40] <espitz> its all behind the scenes you know

[23:40] * NothingMn nods
[23:41] <espitz> but it supports ogles 1.0 for older hardware
[23:41] <rikkib> New rack box to put it in... I have 5 of the ETI480 amps and two SC480's
[23:41] <rikkib> http://www.zlham.geek.nz/rpi/rack.jpg
[23:42] <shiftplusone> Gorroth, the landing page has no wiki or links to pages with the info. Just the little video and a login box. The wiki does look good though. I guess I'd expect a link to the wiki and some non-vague list of features as a selling point.
