[2:55] <snuggyfoo> does anyone know of a way to create a bash script to ssh to an RPi and execute commands?
[2:55] <snuggyfoo> I've setup keys but it still only logs in and never executes anything
[2:57] * hyperair (~hyperair@ubuntu/member/hyperair) has joined #raspberrypi
[2:57] <ShorTie> don't know if it will work, but have you tried echo'n your command ??
[2:58] <snuggyfoo> I just came across a suggestion of using "cat file.sh | name@server /bin/bash" and that worked
[2:58] <snuggyfoo> not sure if that's what I want though.
[2:59] <snuggyfoo> thanks for the suggestion anyhow
[2:59] * SgrA (~sgra@unaffiliated/sgra) has joined #raspberrypi
[3:00] <ShorTie> i was thinking like echo 'dothis'
[3:02] * S0-2 (~sgra@unaffiliated/sgra) Quit (Ping timeout: 256 seconds)
[3:02] * Hydra (~Hydra@5751c98f.skybroadband.com) Quit (Quit: HydraIRC -> http://www.hydrairc.com <- Go on, try it!)
[3:03] * [Saint] isn't terribly happy with any situation that leaves a ssh key in plain text sitting around.
[3:03] <snuggyfoo> I don't follow
[3:04] <snuggyfoo> I learned today how to gen/transfer/add ssh keys
[3:04] <snuggyfoo> so im probably doing it wrong
[3:05] <[Saint]> If you want to do it the "right" way, you create a host list in ~/.ssh/config
[3:05] <[Saint]> And, don't include the passphrase in plain text anywhere.
[3:06] <[Saint]> For example: http://pastebin.com/Cm6zxf8U
[3:06] <[Saint]> that way, all I need do is "ssh saint-raspberrypi"
[3:07] <[Saint]> (then it'll ask for the passphrase, which I don't personally think you should delegate the entry thereof to anything)
[3:07] * dj_pi (~dj@c-107-5-25-243.hsd1.mi.comcast.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[3:08] * Boatski (~Boatski@ has joined #raspberrypi
[3:08] <[Saint]> user/compression/keepalive is specific to my requirements. A basic ssh config will just have the host and hostname.
[3:08] <snuggyfoo> they way I did it at first was with a passphrase, but then I did key gen and transferred to the client. It's stored in ~/.ssh. Is that not the same as what you say?
[3:08] * lupinedk is now known as Lupinedk
[3:08] <snuggyfoo> to connect I just do ssh name@server, no pass prompt
[3:08] <[Saint]> Does your key not have a passphrase?
[3:08] <[Saint]> Oh God.
[3:09] <snuggyfoo> no
[3:09] <snuggyfoo> O_o
[3:09] <[Saint]> The passphrase adds an additional layer of security, and means that people need more than just your key to get into your machine.
[3:09] <snuggyfoo> I did "ssh-keygen -t rsa"
[3:10] <snuggyfoo> oh ok that must have been in the prompts after that command
[3:10] <[Saint]> That should've asked you for a passphrase, but you may have just hit Enter and left it blank.
[3:10] <ShorTie> is this just on tour own network or going over the net ??
[3:11] <snuggyfoo> Ok, I can redo it. Thank you [Saint].
[3:11] <[Saint]> Even if its local only, its still good practice to secure with a passphrase.
[3:11] <ShorTie> your*
[3:11] <snuggyfoo> Yeah, only local
[3:11] <ShorTie> true
[3:11] <ShorTie> but not as critical
[3:12] * Syliss (~Home2@dpncorp1.digitalpath.net) Quit (Quit: Syliss)
[3:13] <[Saint]> Well...if someone gets remote access to one machine.
[3:13] <snuggyfoo> well its not too difficult I guess. In any case, I'm glad you pointed that out for my learning.
[3:13] <[Saint]> You'll want to try to limit it to that one machine. :)
[3:13] <snuggyfoo> Good point
[3:14] <[Saint]> Other points of interest are: disable root access for ssh (no one needs root access for ssh, or, anything...really), disable password login, enable access to specific users only (there's a hint of that in my ssh config), etc.
[3:15] * SirLagz (~SirLagz@ppp121-45-240-219.lns20.per2.internode.on.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[3:15] <[Saint]> http://pastebin.com/N8rJqKj4
[3:16] <[Saint]> that'll give you a clue.
[3:16] <[Saint]> (that's my sshd_config
[3:16] <[Saint]> )
[3:17] <snuggyfoo> you have that in ~/.ssh/config, correct?
[3:17] <[Saint]> /etc/ssh/sshd_config
[3:18] * kingbo (~kingbo@ has joined #raspberrypi
[3:18] * kingbo (~kingbo@ has left #raspberrypi
[3:19] * jlf (~user@pdpc/supporter/active/jlf) Quit (Ping timeout: 240 seconds)
[3:19] <[Saint]> The big ones, IMO, are: PermitRootLogin no, PermitEmptyPasswords no, and AllowUsers <usernames>.
[3:20] <snuggyfoo> I wonder if there's something out there to sweep your system for these kinds of vulnerabilities
[3:21] <[Saint]> That pretty much makes it impossible that someone could gain ssh access without either kidnapping you, or having full crontrol of your system anyway.
[3:21] <snuggyfoo> There's a windows program liek that but I can't think of the name of it
[3:21] <ShorTie> just don't open port 22 up to the outside
[3:24] * rwb (~rbragg@65-183-151-253-dhcp.burlingtontelecom.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[3:24] <[Saint]> ...why?
[3:24] <[Saint]> That's kinda silly.
[3:24] <SirLagz> [Saint]: hai
[3:24] <[Saint]> There's absolutely nothign wrong with exposing ssh to the outside world IFF its setup correctly.
[3:25] <[Saint]> (note the extra F in IFF)
[3:25] <SirLagz> my port 22 is open to the outside...but i've whitelisted the IPs that can connect to it
[3:25] * Reggie__ (ReggieUK@ has joined #raspberrypi

[3:25] <[Saint]> ALso, howdy.
[3:25] <SirLagz> Used to have a huge range of IPs...now it's down to 3 IPs haha
[3:26] * ReggieUK (ReggieUK@ Quit (Ping timeout: 260 seconds)
[3:27] <[Saint]> I whitelist, limit by username, and have a ridiculous key/passphrase combo.
[3:27] <SirLagz> heh nice
[3:27] <[Saint]> Oh...there's also 2-factor auth if need be)
[3:27] <SirLagz> how did you setup 2 factor ?
[3:27] <[Saint]> If I mess up the passphrase, it'll trigger 2-factor.
[3:28] * jlf (~user@pdpc/supporter/active/jlf) has joined #raspberrypi
[3:28] <[Saint]> There's a Google Authenticator 2-factor PAM module.
[3:28] <[Saint]> I _think_ I wrote up the magic to get it working as a fallback only, but I can't seem to find it right now.
[3:30] <SirLagz> ah right
[3:30] <SirLagz> interesting
[3:31] <SirLagz> might have a play around with it sometime

[3:55] <SirLagz> stupid zenoss....why you no install =/
[3:57] <snuggyfoo> [Saint] Now that my ssh server is key + pw + user protected, do you have any idea how I can execute commands from a client via bash file?
[3:59] <pixels> Is there any specific way I should go about creating a SD Card image with a custom OS on it for a Raspberry Pi?
[4:00] <SirLagz> pixels: build the OS on the Pi, zero out the free space, then take an image of hte SD card ?
[4:03] <pixels> nevermind, found a tutorial, you just replace the .img on the raspbian image

[4:18] * killer_prince is now known as lazy_prince
[4:21] <[Saint]> That's a bloody terrible way of doing it.
[4:21] <[Saint]> Just grab all the kernel/firmware magic off github/
[4:22] <SirLagz> [Saint]: the way I suggested ?
[4:22] <[Saint]> No, bastardizing a Raspbian image.
[4:23] <[Saint]> (for the sake of stealing its /boot partition, one assumes)
[4:23] <[Saint]> Anyhoo - https://github.com/raspberrypi

[4:30] <SirLagz> [Saint]: haha...funnily enough that's how I started my own Raspbian fork originally :P
[4:30] * gbaman (~gbaman@host81-130-11-92.in-addr.btopenworld.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[4:31] <[Saint]> Its kinda obvious, in a way, I guess. But its creating needless work for one's self.
[4:31] <[Saint]> Live & learn. :)
[4:31] <SirLagz> [Saint]: I did my own fork back before all that magic was available :P
[4:31] <SirLagz> when Raspbian could fit on a 2GB SD card haha
[4:31] <[Saint]> ...really? That would be a GPL violation.
[4:32] <[Saint]> I'm pretty sure the sources were there for the kernel from day one.
[4:32] <SirLagz> well. not a fork
[4:32] <SirLagz> kernel sources were, but not all the magical scripts that are available now
[4:32] <almostworking> devs dont like it when people do that, in general
[4:32] <SirLagz> do what ?
[4:33] <[Saint]> What? Forking is one of the prime aspects of FOSS.
[4:33] <[Saint]> If people didn't fork...imagine all the things we wouldn't have.
[4:33] <almostworking> start a fork without permission. .... hmmm, someone did that with ubuntu or mint a long time ago
[4:33] <[Saint]> The license is the permission.
[4:33] <[Saint]> You don't need to ask.
[4:33] <[Saint]> If a developer thinks you do, screw them. Pretty much.
[4:34] <SirLagz> as long as you include the source, you can fork all you want, assuming it's GPL
[4:34] * almostworking sighs
[4:34] <almostworking> just saying someone out there makes a version, unoffical of Linux Mint and its horrible.
[4:34] <[Saint]> I'm not exactly sure what you're sighing about.
[4:34] <[Saint]> People are absolutely within their rights to do so.
[4:34] <[Saint]> And the community as a whole is better for it.

[4:52] <[Saint]> ;)
[4:52] <SirLagz> haha
[4:52] <SirLagz> work network or home network ?
[4:53] <[Saint]> Home. SO not /too/ bad.
[4:53] <SirLagz> HOME NETWOKR DOWN ?!?!!? OMG P1 INCIDENT!!!
[4:53] <SirLagz> lol
[4:54] <SirLagz> my missus would be *very* unhappy with me if i broke my home network because she works from home
[4:54] * deadlysin (~jvboy@gateway/tor-sasl/jvboy) Quit ()
[4:54] <SirLagz> luckily for me, I've started building in redundancy in my home network now :D
[4:55] <SirLagz> still have lots of single points of failure though
[4:55] <[Saint]> I've been trying to remove points of failure from my home network as well.
[4:55] <[Saint]> While slowly replacing hardware as well.
[4:55] <SirLagz> Phone line is unfortunately always going to be a SPOF

[4:56] <[Saint]> I run a kinda-sorta-maybe-ish ISP, so there's around two dozen households downstream of me.
[4:56] <SirLagz> kinda-sorta-maybe-ish ISP ?
[4:56] <[Saint]> Thankfully, I've segregated the connections some time ago.
[4:57] <[Saint]> I sell the neighbors all-they-can-eat wireless for $10 a month.
[4:57] <SirLagz> ah nice
[4:57] <SirLagz> have you throttled em down to the bare minimum ? lol
[4:58] <SirLagz> nice tidy $240 a month too. nice
[4:58] <[Saint]> Nah, they can get some pretty decent speeds. It doesn't affect me much, I'm on an entirely separate connection.

[5:03] <[Saint]> The only part of my setup the ISp is bitterly unhappy about is the anonymizing Ap I have set up.
[5:03] <[Saint]> But they can't do anything about that, either.
[5:03] <SirLagz> haha

[5:08] <[Saint]> Yeah, that's the downside. Hence the anonymizing AP.
[5:08] <[Saint]> (but even that would be vulnerable to DPI)
[5:08] <[Saint]> There's a certain amount of trust involved, yes.
[5:08] <SirLagz> [Saint]: yeah that's what I would be worried about if I did what you did
[5:09] <SirLagz> do you keep logs or anything so that *you* know who was looking at shady things ?
[5:09] <[Saint]> But, to be completely honest, the package I'm on seems to be somewhat of a "get out of jail free" card.
[5:09] <SirLagz> what do you mean ?
[5:09] <[Saint]> The ISp even offers "don't throttle the crap out of p-2-p traffic for an extra $10".
[5:09] <[Saint]> lol.
[5:09] <SirLagz> hahaha nice
[5:09] <[Saint]> I'm pretty sure they just look the other way because I pay so much for the bloody connection.
[5:09] <SirLagz> luckily for me, my ISP doesn't throttle P2P traffic
[5:09] <SirLagz> haha
[5:09] <[Saint]> They could've snapped me many times over already.
[5:10] <[Saint]> Your ISP probably doesn't throttle because you can't make a big dent in the bandwidth.
[5:10] <SirLagz> that's true
[5:10] <[Saint]> This is only offered here for the top tier plans where you can suck through hundreds of GB a day easily.

[7:19] <imuglyandimproud> Anyone mind helping me debug an issue with GPIO pins being weird?
[7:19] <gordonDrogon> imuglyandimproud, depends on what library you're using - I'm not much good on Python...
[7:19] <imuglyandimproud> python would be it
[7:20] <gordonDrogon> still... you could use the wiringPi gpio command-line utility to do individual pin checks.
[7:22] <almostworking> ive not got around to python yet , be nice to know prob. since this IRC bot is for python
[7:23] <imuglyandimproud> Well, the issue is within the output pins. For now there's nothing plugged into them, but apparently something is using the channel.
[7:23] <gordonDrogon> which pins?
[7:23] <imuglyandimproud> 17/22

[7:23] <almostworking> if channel is in use for a pin, does the current change?

[7:25] * Boatski (~Boatski@ Quit (Quit: Computer has gone to sleep.)
[7:27] <gordonDrogon> imuglyandimproud, I think the rpi.gpio library has some notion of pins in-use/not in-use, but there's an initialisation call to basically ignore that. I'm more a C programmer than Python though, so don't really know much about the Python side.

[7:41] <almostworking> well, its in a ubuntu box, imo, ubuntu shuould know better , not like im running Arch
[7:42] <gordonDrogon> are you seeing performance issues? It's writes that will be very slow if it's wringly aligned.
[7:42] <almostworking> eh, someone at IBM wrote a paper that its not that bad a differnce. i didnt read it too carefully.
[7:42] <gordonDrogon> the underlying filesystem (well ext) uses 4K blocks anyway.
[7:42] <almostworking> no its fastest dive in my computer now

[7:43] <almostworking> oh, burst mode is 200MB on sata II !
[7:43] <almostworking> sustained drops down to 130mb approx. i dont remember
[7:43] <almostworking> i just got drive setup not long ago
[7:43] <gordonDrogon> yea, that's usually PC to memory on the drive, not to the platters.
[7:44] <gordonDrogon> yea, 130MB/sec is more like head speed - which is good for a relatively modern drive.

[7:48] <SirLagz> almostworking: 4K disk ? What sort of 4K disk is this ?
[7:50] <almostworking> western digital black 3TB drive
[7:50] <almostworking> SirLagz: ^
[7:50] <almostworking> i dont have exact model handy.
[7:50] <SirLagz> ah nice
[7:50] <almostworking> indeed, im quite pleased , $80 more then seagate for a reason
[7:50] <SirLagz> logical size is done by the FS btw
[7:50] <SirLagz> when you partition, you set sector size then
[7:51] <almostworking> manually in terminal ?
[7:52] <almostworking> i didnt see a sector size option in gparted or disk util ..... but i dont have the newest Gparted ofc, being on a LTS distro
[7:52] <SirLagz> almostworking: you can do it in terminal...don't ask me how though, I don't remember haha
[7:52] <almostworking> ha
[7:52] <SirLagz> pretty sure gparted will let you do it too but again, i don't remember for sure
[7:52] <SirLagz> i'm not at hoem to try it out either
[7:52] <almostworking> yea, ill just unplug my other drives make it easy on myself
[7:52] <almostworking> eh, i try gparted on a live USB cant hurt
[7:53] <almostworking> it works fine as is, but ill try and see

[8:00] <SirLagz> almostworking: just remembered how you would set the sectore size in terminal. when you're creating the filesystem with mkfs.
[8:00] <almostworking> ah, ok
[8:00] <almostworking> awesome
[8:01] <SirLagz> so create the partition with whatever, then create a fs with mkfs.ext4 -b 4096
[8:02] <almostworking> ahh, ok...... seems pretty strait forward
[8:03] <gordonDrogon> it's 4096 by default anyway.
[8:04] <gordonDrogon> dumpe2fs /dev/sda1|grep "Block size"
[8:04] <SirLagz> gordonDrogon: is it ? last time i used it, it was still at 512
[8:04] <gordonDrogon> where /dev/sda1 is your ext4 partition.
[8:04] <doctorpenguin> when I do sudo rm -r %dir%, what does the -r stand for?
[8:04] <gordonDrogon> SirLagz, pretty sure - I think it's determined by the overall size of the disk - and most disks these days are big (compared to the early days)
[8:05] <SirLagz> gordonDrogon: ah. true
[8:05] <gordonDrogon> doctorpenguin, -r recursive - ie. deleted *everything*
[8:05] <doctorpenguin> ty
[8:06] <gordonDrogon> SirLagz, my /dev/sda1 there is a 64GB SSD and I don't recall doing anything special when I set it up..
[8:06] <doctorpenguin> what is he trying to do?
[8:06] <doctorpenguin> curious
[8:07] <doctorpenguin> I had to set mine up to automount and then set the directories in the es_systems.cfg
[8:07] <SirLagz> gordonDrogon: maybe my systems were just too old haha
[8:07] <gordonDrogon> SirLagz, Ah - just checked an older system and it's 1K
[8:07] <gordonDrogon> so maybe good to be explicit...
[8:07] <SirLagz> gordonDrogon: yeah mine's 1K too
[8:08] <SirLagz> gordonDrogon: on a recently installed system, though with smaller drive
[8:08] <gordonDrogon> SirLagz, that older system - has 1K and 4K block sizes - the 1K one is a very small partition - 256M.
[8:09] <gordonDrogon> the other partitions are all 4K
[8:09] <SirLagz> the 1K on mine is on 5GB partition
[8:09] <almostworking> oh lots of chat i missed in here
[8:09] <SirLagz> gordonDrogon: what distro is that on ?
[8:09] <gordonDrogon> SirLagz, debian v6.
[8:09] <SirLagz> gordonDrogon: hmm same here
[8:09] <SirLagz> wonder why
[8:09] <gordonDrogon> it's entirely possible it was v5 upgraded though.
[8:10] <gordonDrogon> that is an older server.
[8:10] <gordonDrogon> uptime 2 years..
[8:10] <SirLagz> nice
[8:10] <gordonDrogon> power on hours for the drives: 51415 or 5 years.
[8:10] <SirLagz> the box I'm looking at was built maybe a year ago, but it's a VM
[8:11] <gordonDrogon> Hm. didn't realise it was that old.
[8:11] * gordonDrogon adds it to the recycle list.
[8:11] <SirLagz> lol
[8:11] <SirLagz> my boxes are at least 5 years old :P
[8:11] <SirLagz> don't have anything newer than that =/
[8:11] <gordonDrogon> this is one of my home/office servers.
[8:12] <almostworking> this drive i have has 4K sectors, 3TB drive , a western digital black drive...... and this should all be working fine by now with linux , im a fanatic most people would read there terminal output and be happy drive is aligned
[8:12] <SirLagz> i don't even align my drives lol...
[8:13] <gordonDrogon> I think after the WDC "EARS" drives most distros cottoned onto the alignment.
[8:14] <SirLagz> ah...i probably don't have any drives that new anyway

[9:24] <doctorpenguin> o raspberry pi?
[9:24] <doctorpenguin> I use it for retropi
[9:24] <doctorpenguin> I want to create a mini-arcade for me and my dad.
[9:24] <doctorpenguin> then I might want to use the raspberry pi to build a drone

[9:28] <grodt> i loved goldeneye and mario kart

[9:31] <doctorpenguin> ah
[9:31] <grodt> no real plans, but seems neato
[9:31] <doctorpenguin> I used the money from my left over scholarships/grants. I'm graduating this yr.
[9:32] <grodt> its 35 bucks
[9:32] <grodt> ?
[9:32] <doctorpenguin> I'm a very cheap person
[9:32] <doctorpenguin> I don't work so money is tight for my hobbies.
[9:33] <doctorpenguin> I have severe society anxiety. It is often ironic. I hate being around people but, I get lonely.
[9:33] <doctorpenguin> I'm kind of in a screwed if I do/don't position
[9:33] <grodt> doctorpenguin, how do you deal with it
[9:34] <doctorpenguin> I just meditate, play video games, exercise, try as best as I can to be honest.
[9:34] <doctorpenguin> I hate it but, unless I want to be drugged out of my mind of pills I have too
[9:34] * mgottschlag (~quassel@reactos/tester/phoenix64) Quit (Ping timeout: 240 seconds)
[9:34] <doctorpenguin> legal pills
[9:34] <doctorpenguin> anti psychotics
[9:34] <grodt> f the pills
[9:35] <doctorpenguin> When I take them, I don't even know who I am anymore

[9:35] <grodt> to me, it seems drugs like that are heavily used only in american/western societies
[9:35] <doctorpenguin> the medical industry is horrible grodt
[9:36] <doctorpenguin> in the US
[9:36] <doctorpenguin> they are the only ones to offer care/help with medical issues but, look for a profit margin b4 actually helping nyone
[9:36] <doctorpenguin> My families religious ties saved my life from cancer 3 years ago
[9:37] <doctorpenguin> a catholic doctor saved my life from two episodes of cancer
[9:37] <doctorpenguin> even though I'm not religious
[9:37] <grodt> doctorpenguin, population control
[9:37] <doctorpenguin> I appreciated it
[9:37] <doctorpenguin> I also used to be epileptic
[9:37] <grodt> they have all the money to go demolish countries but no money for proper healthcare
[9:37] <grodt> glad you are better
[9:38] <doctorpenguin> ya me 2 but, tbh life is even harder just living.
[9:38] <grodt> doctorpenguin, it shouldnt be like that
[9:39] <doctorpenguin> ya I know but, American Society is pretty horrible. I'm fortunate to have really good parents.
[9:39] <doctorpenguin> If not I would probably be homeless or dead
[9:40] <grodt> yes, good parents make a huge difference
[9:40] <doctorpenguin> anonymity though is a powerful too. I often talk about it to my anthro professors and the threat the NSA poses to the entirety of the world
[9:40] <doctorpenguin> tool*
[9:40] <doctorpenguin> they threaten too destroy what so many have spent their lives creating; technology, the internet,
[9:41] <grodt> that snowden stuff is just another psyop
[9:41] <doctorpenguin> the internet is itself a leveler in American society and around the world. I can't imagine it not existing or being sold to the highest bidder
[9:41] <grodt> they are just trying to let you slowly know you are in a panopticon

[9:43] <grodt> now im in the south
[9:43] <doctorpenguin> ah cool
[9:44] <doctorpenguin> horrible what is happening around there / Gaza
[9:44] <doctorpenguin> I feel remorse for the mindless zombie of a country the US has become
[9:45] <doctorpenguin> at least it is helping build up Ukraine though
[9:45] <grodt> zombies indeed
[9:45] <doctorpenguin> One of my best friends is from Ukraine

[9:49] <grodt> but they are gods chosen people
[9:49] <doctorpenguin> thats what I said to some of my Jewish friends
[9:49] <Sonny_Jim> Off topic
[9:49] <Sonny_Jim> BTW Windjammers is awesome
[9:49] <doctorpenguin> I've been off topic for a while
[9:49] <doctorpenguin> btw ok
[9:49] <Sonny_Jim> Yeah, but this is likely to illicit all kinds of grief
[9:49] <doctorpenguin> what platform is it on?
[9:49] <Sonny_Jim> Neogeo
[9:49] <grodt> doctorpenguin, neogeo
[9:49] <doctorpenguin> ah cool
[9:49] <grodt> rpi can run neogeo fine?
[9:50] <doctorpenguin> neo genesis?
[9:50] <Sonny_Jim> Yeah should do
[9:50] <doctorpenguin> curious
[9:50] <Sonny_Jim> gngeo works I think
[9:50] <Sonny_Jim> Nothing to do with the Sega Genesis, was made by a Japanese company called SNK
[9:50] <Sonny_Jim> Well, actually it had the same CPU as the Genesis, but relegated to sound/joystick reading dutys
[9:51] <Sonny_Jim> They had a much beefier CPU for the graphics
[9:51] <doctorpenguin> ah cool

[9:51] <Sonny_Jim> Ah actually it was the same CPU, Motorola 68k and Z80
[9:52] <Sonny_Jim> But the Neogeo was clocked faster and had oodles of memory
[9:54] <Sonny_Jim> Only really rich kids had a Neo Geo, as it effectively was an arcade system for your home
[9:54] <doctorpenguin> I wish retropie had wicd installed by default. It is a much better network tool then the default now. Ya know Sonny_Jim?
[9:54] <Sonny_Jim> iirc games were in the region of $200
[9:54] <Sonny_Jim> I've never used it
[9:54] <doctorpenguin> someone suggested it here and it used to be default on ubuntu
[9:54] <doctorpenguin> but, I installed it for an easy gui tool for wireless/wired connections
[9:54] * Sonny_Jim shrugs
[9:55] <Sonny_Jim> I just boot up X if I want a easier config
[9:55] <Sonny_Jim> well, xorg + x11vnc + vncviewer
[9:55] <doctorpenguin> ya me 2
[9:55] <doctorpenguin> but, the interface by default is buggy
[9:55] <Sonny_Jim> In what way?
[9:56] <doctorpenguin> the network interface tool wpa_gui is buggy and easily corruptable
[9:56] <doctorpenguin> saved my fathers wireless network and the schools in wpa_supplicant and then became unfixable for me at least at my experience level

Or more simply if you're learning and want something with a good community and documentation stick to the Raspberry Pi.
[10:37] <Vostok> SiC: any documentation on that?

[10:44] <lost_soul> the Bananna Pi has SATA, nice
[10:44] <lost_soul> and gigabit ethernet
[10:45] <almostworking> the hummingboard has that, no sata which is fine for me

[13:21] <Dave77> are there any 1GB raspberry pis?
[13:22] <shiftplusone> Dave77, nope
[13:22] <shiftplusone> It's not really needed, since running out of the 512 takes some effort and/or stupidity
[13:22] <Dave77> so no industrial customers got a 1GB pi?
[13:24] <shiftplusone> nope
[13:24] <shiftplusone> the SoC just wouldn't be able to address it and nobody makes a 1GB RAM chip in that PoP package which would on top of it anyway.
[13:24] <Dave77> thought samsung made a 1gb?

[13:35] * doctorpenguin (~doctorpen@ has joined #raspberrypi
[13:36] <doctorpenguin> good morning #RaspberryPi, has anyone had any luck with Muppen64Plus?
[13:37] <doctorpenguin> I'm trying to get the n64 emulator working; || does anyone have any guides about that component of raspPi?
[13:37] <MY123> shiftplusone: Yes, but it costs 15 dollars a chip and is proof of concept. Hynix even made a 2GB one which costs an arm and a leg.
[13:37] <shiftplusone> If that's true, it's there's still the SoC support issue.
[13:38] <lost_soul> doctorpenguin: did you look at the github page for the release made for the Pi?
[13:38] <doctorpenguin> yes
[13:38] <whiskers75> Woo, live TV with pi!
[13:38] <doctorpenguin> I can send u the link but, it just says that the emulator doesn't work well much like the comments on the forums
[13:39] <SiC> I reckon raspberry pi 2 will have 1gb ram
[13:39] <Darkwell> hmm
[13:39] <doctorpenguin> dated 7/6/14
[13:39] <MY123> shiftplusone: An open-source bootcode and firmware resolves that problem.
[13:39] <SiC> and I suspect they'll change the SoC too
[13:39] <Darkwell> checking torrent clients on the web for rpi
[13:39] <shiftplusone> doubt it
[13:39] <lost_soul> doctorpenguin: then it is a good indication it doesn't work very well. Perhaps try another emulator?
[13:39] <Armand> They'll have to change the CPU for rPi2 anyway.. Duh.
[13:39] <Darkwell> some one said rtorrent wont be recommended in rpi... which i find vary strange since its one of the most resource efficent client there is for linux
[13:40] <Darkwell> but ofcourse if one use a bad config it could be the opposite
[13:40] <doctorpenguin> why bother including it in an update if it doesn't work, doesn't that seem pointless?
[13:40] <lost_soul> Darkwell: that surprises me as well considering OpenELEC has an addon for rtorrent and many ppl that want an HTPC use openelec on the pi
[13:40] <Darkwell> rpi 2 1 G ram an OTG uisbn ?
[13:40] <MY123> shiftplusone: A 22nm LPDDR2 chip can have 1GByte and be cheap enough in big volumes (but the current ones are 40nm).
[13:40] <doctorpenguin> no offense, lost_soul; just curious
[13:41] <Darkwell> rpi 2 1 G ram an OTG usb ???
[13:41] <lost_soul> doctorpenguin: the question you pose is indeed a good one, perhaps getting in touch with the person that maintains the github repository would be your best bet.
[13:41] <Darkwell> yeah it can jhave 1G ram and usb OTG and good graph card and be cheap look at olinuxino
[13:41] <shiftplusone> Darkwell, there is no rpi 2
[13:41] <Dave77> are there any download managers for RPI?
[13:41] <shiftplusone> wait until 2017 before thinking about pi 2
[13:42] * rwb (~rbragg@65-183-151-253-dhcp.burlingtontelecom.net) Quit (Ping timeout: 250 seconds)
[13:42] <lost_soul> doctorpenguin: I take no offense, I wouldn't even attempt using software that even the maintainer says doesn't work well.
[13:42] <doctorpenguin> k
[13:43] <doctorpenguin> might try to fix it anyway
[13:43] <SiC> I reckon rpi 2 will come before 2017
[13:43] <doctorpenguin> says it works fine on windows/mac osx
[13:43] <Armand> Darkwell: I can't see much point to having OTG, unless you care to enlighten me,
[13:43] <MY123> A RPi 2 is NOT needed. Run everything on the VPU.
[13:43] <doctorpenguin> I don't see why it wouldn't work on linux b/c the previous are ports lost_soul
[13:43] <doctorpenguin> or forks*
[13:44] <lost_soul> doctorpenguin: what you are failing to realize is that those are different hardware platforms
[13:44] <lost_soul> just because something works fine on one, does not mean the same will hold true for another.
[13:44] <Darkwell> it depends on what you want to do , for instance a more flexible media stations could be supported with another rpi design
[13:45] <Darkwell> having a non power hungry and flexible machine is always needed =)
[13:45] <lost_soul> agreed ^^
[13:45] <Armand> Still not seeing the relevance to OTG, but.. eehh
[13:46] <Darkwell> well many TVs has usb ports and can read usb disks/memsticks etc
[13:46] <Darkwell> those tvs has powerful video decoders so then the rpi can act as a disk
[13:46] <Armand> Why would I not just get a USB drive?
[13:46] <Darkwell> you can do so with cheapo s,smartphones sowhy not with rpi
[13:47] <MY123> The currrent Pi is dual-core. No speed issue, Darkwell .
[13:47] * lazy_prince (~killer_pr@ Quit (Ping timeout: 250 seconds)
[13:47] <Darkwell> also you could cluster 3 rpis together 2 as "disks" to a 3rd
[13:47] <SiC> is it?
[13:47] <SiC> or are you counting the gpu as another core?
[13:47] <lost_soul> the B+ is a dual core?
[13:47] <Armand> No
[13:48] <Darkwell> because an usb drive has no own file serving
[13:48] <Darkwell> having OTG would add flexibility woithout extra costs
[13:48] <MY123> Yes, there is two "VP̈U" cores on which currently run start.elf but are general-purpose, SiC .
[13:49] <MY123> Every Pi ever made is tri-core.
[13:49] <SiC> you can't run code on them trivially though
[13:49] <SiC> what is the processing core? its not arm based?
[13:49] <Armand> ARM11
[13:50] <SiC> no I mean in the gpu/vpu
[13:50] <shiftplusone> The RPI is dual core in the sense of the word that nobody uses, ever.
[13:50] <MY123> Yes, it is a dual-core VPU. Not ARM based, SiC, designed 100 percent by BCM.
[13:50] <shiftplusone> you could say it's 16 core, but that would be just as wrong.
[13:50] <SiC> so not really dual core
[13:51] <MY123> I have my RTOS running on it shiftplusone , it is the freeblob plan.
[13:51] <SiC> you could start declaring that the processors in the usb/ethernet controller is an extra processor
[13:51] <SiC> so its a dual processor board
[13:51] <SiC> :p
[13:51] <Darkwell> hmm
[13:51] <shiftplusone> MY123, all moot until it's released and sufficiently functional.

[13:54] <shiftplusone> Not unless you want to waste time porting it all to vpu asm or write a proper C compiler for the vpu.
[13:54] <Darkwell> but perhaps the bus to the rest of the machine is too clow to be useful
[13:55] <Darkwell> well it could be fun having a distro for those who knows they never will use the hdmi/graphics and run as server only

[13:55] <shiftplusone> Darkwell, you can use it even if you 'have graphics'.
[13:56] <Darkwell> its always an initial waste of time when coding drivers/kernel/os before its done and compile binaries for it.. but it always are people that has to do the job,...
[13:56] <shiftplusone> oh I don't think it's a waste of time
[13:56] <shiftplusone> I think trying to do it in asm is
[13:57] <Darkwell> why do you ahve to do it in asm ?
[13:57] <shiftplusone> but if anyone gets gcc or llvm compiling for the VPU, that would be amazing.

[14:00] <shiftplusone> Darkwell, yes, it's closed, but huge chunks of it have been reverse engineered. Look up hermanhermitage on github.
[14:00] <MY123> Darkwell: 100 percent reverse-enginnered.
[14:00] <shiftplusone> ...nowhere near 100%
[14:01] <Darkwell> how much does it cost to get documentation ?
[14:02] <MY123> shiftplusone: I finished RE the L1 and L2C controller yesterday.The things missing are the HW registers.
[14:02] <MY123> But they are not part of the VPU.
[14:02] <Darkwell> i mean someone could raise a kickstarter funding to buy documentation an hire coders and sign nda to get bsd/lpgl code for the cpu

[14:03] <Darkwell> thats logical to push the machine further forward in useability in time

[14:04] <MY123> I have one: http://uppit.com/vu67fl81lxzf/start_3.elf
[14:05] <Darkwell> if the docs are planned to be released then a fundraiser for bsd/lgpl code for the vpu isnt needed, but since its jsut rumours i would vote for aiming for a fundraiser at say kickstarter

[16:17] <MY123> esistgut: EMC emissions.
[16:17] <ShorTie> maybe need some coupling caps

[16:32] <gordonDrogon> MY123, csi uses differential signalling - somewhat different to this case.
[16:32] <ctyler> hook up the circuit and see what it's like in that case, don't sweat what you're getting with just unnatached leads picking up stray signals
[16:33] <gordonDrogon> with nothin on the MISO pin it will float about like a wibbly wobbly thing.

[16:56] <shiftplusone> define 'crashes'?
[16:56] <RaTTuS|BIG> and how are you checking
[16:57] <Darkwell> its a nice idea to have sshguard... but its not good enough since it adds rules that will if there are many attempts from many ips the list of rules increases.. instead of having a set of ips in ipset

[17:36] <MY123> Johannes`: Possible but not p̂ratical.
[17:36] <shiftplusone> ofdm, that's the sure way, yes. I think a simple apt-get update; apt-get upgrade; as root should do it too
[17:36] <ofdm> shiftplusone: ok, thanks!

[17:37] <MY123> Budd: So a bug in the bootrom, where should one report that, shiftplusone ?
[17:38] <shiftplusone> MY123, you're jumping to conclusions
[17:38] * snuggyfoo (~ares@ has joined #raspberrypi
[17:39] <shiftplusone> If you could send a card in, then I could take a look and see what's going on, but I think it's a much more simple and common problem of poor sd card contact
[17:40] <Budd> Two things I haven't tried yet: flash the 32MB image onto a large, known-working card, and 2) stich this in a newer-model Pi.
[17:40] <Budd> shiftplusone: should I try booting with a thumb on the SD card?
[17:40] <shiftplusone> Budd, yeah, pay attention to the ACT led when you do
[17:40] <Budd> ok.
[17:41] <MY123> Yes. If a higher capacity SD works fine with thr same image and bootfiles and bootcode.bin does not blink to say start.elf not found, then JTAG is the only solution or faulty SD(contacts, image or something else).

[17:46] <MY123> jp5863: If Windows,normal.
[17:46] <shiftplusone> jp5863, paste the command you used
[17:47] <jp5863> the image generated I use linux, but I need to burnit on windows
[17:47] <jp5863> on linux I use dd
[17:47] <ShorTie> windiskimager32 then
[17:47] <jp5863> and works fine for generate and burn
[17:47] <jp5863> yep, on windows I use windiskimager32
[17:48] <shiftplusone> jp5863, win32diskimager and dd both don't work?
[17:48] <jp5863> I don't know why but other images burns ok almots 4 month ago
[17:48] <jp5863> only win32diskimager don't work
[17:49] <jp5863> I tested on a DELL and HP machine
[17:49] <ShorTie> you can make an image with win32diskimager too...
[17:49] <jp5863> I don't try thath, maybe if the image is generated in windows...

[19:25] <DarkMio> http://www.tp-link.com/en/products/details/?categoryid=&model=TL-WR1043ND - that's the router and it fatures a standard USB2.0 port.

[19:25] <IT_Sean> You need at least 700ma... 1A or more preferred. Depends on the router, but, you will likely need an actuall wall wart supply.

[19:26] <DarkMio> Dunno about the specs of a standard usb-port. Those smartphone-usb-charger will be enough, right?
[19:26] <DarkMio> (In case it isn't enough.)
[19:27] <IT_Sean> As long as it outputs 1A or more, yes.
[19:28] <DarkMio> It does!
[19:28] <rewbycraft> Also, don't put to many peripherals on it (especially ones that draw a lot of power).
[19:28] <DarkMio> I plan to run it as a python-dev-machine.
[19:29] <DarkMio> It will get a CAT6 (cuz they're cheaper, somehow) and it's mini-usb cable and is done.
[19:29] <IT_Sean> The phone charger should do.
[19:30] <rewbycraft> Be careful with keyboards though. Some take a lot of power. (Managed to kill it with an older kb).

[23:02] <gordonDrogon> DanDare, hi. interrupts via the gpio are very fast ... into a Linux kernel (or module), but to get them from there to userland inrtoduces about 15�S of latency.
[23:02] * S0-2 is now known as SgrA
[23:03] <gordonDrogon> DanDare, wiringPi can directly control shift registers (via bit-bang, but it does that for you). I2C, SPI is handled by the kernel, but wiringPi has some 'helpers' to make some stuff easy to use.

[23:12] <MY123> Budd: It does work with FAT16.
[23:12] <DanDare> 15µS seems like a lot of overhead. In this scenario I guess interrupt speed on pi will not be very fast, it will be like interrupt speeds im used working with atmega168/arduino stuff (if im not doing wrong calc)
[23:12] <gordonDrogon> DanDare, remember - the Pi has a multi-user, multi-tasking operating system between the hardware and your code.
[23:13] <DanDare> Yeah I know.. it's totally different than working with "real" uC's
[23:13] <gordonDrogon> if you want a proper interrupt, you need to write it at the kernel level, not in userland.
[23:13] <gordonDrogon> in kernel level it's faster than an ATmega.
[23:13] <MY123> DanDare: You can use the VPU to a nanosecond latency.
[23:13] <DanDare> ok
[23:14] <gordonDrogon> DanDare, ignore that - you can't really use anything other than the ARM right now. There are no tools to use it to good effect.

[23:18] <DanDare> I have a sound synth project, hybrid stuff, analog output out from the digital side. Project is stop atm cause arduino gets slow for so many individual oscillators. Guessing what could be a substitute to continue the project

[23:22] <gordonDrogon> DanDare, I'm synthesizing some audio on the Pi - only 8-bit stuff at 11KHz, but it's doing ok (emulating BBC Micro sound system plus playing samples)
[23:22] <DanDare> MY123, thats not a "practical" project. Doing it for funny. True analog sound output is what im achieving. old additive synthesis idea
[23:23] <gordonDrogon> MY123, first: write an operating system to support your stuff... Really not helpful. You're just getting in the way now.
[23:24] <MY123> gordonDrogon: There is usable from Linux samples at github.com/kika123/vc4-ack-samples with the VCloader and everything included.
[23:24] <DanDare> gordonDrogon, I see. Sounds interesting. But like I said Im doing pure analog output. I know it sounds dumb... like I said, just for the fun :)

[23:37] * Macuser (~textual@unaffiliated/macuser) Quit (Quit: My MacBook Pro has gone to sleep. ZZZzzz…)
[23:38] <DanDare> gordonDrogon, were doing it on a rudimentary way. I mean, shift register pool feeding DACs. Problem is that the project requires more pins (not just the oscillators itself), arduino gets slow on that pool this way, lets say for 8 or 10 oscillators
[23:38] <DanDare> Well, the SR's were part of the DACs really
[23:38] <gordonDrogon> ah right - you're generating the audio via external hardware.
[23:38] <DanDare> Yeah
[23:39] <DanDare> and thats really my intention, for learning purposes also
[23:39] <DanDare> and oscillators are true analog output (some other requirement)
[23:40] <gordonDrogon> you don't need that on a Pi - it's got it all built in - well - Linux has - generate a wave and get Linux to play it. Not sure about how real-timey is is but the PIANA synth on that page seems to be doing a good job (and I used to work with that chap too :)

[23:41] <DanDare> gordonDrogon, but when linux play it, it will be digital output, not analog, right ?
[23:41] <gordonDrogon> for my own thing, I parse the old bbc envelope command and build up 20 seconds of sound in RAM for each channel, then get Linux to mix the channels together then play it - can do that in a few mS.
[23:41] <gordonDrogon> DanDare, well... if you're sending parallel data to a DAC, it's digital too :)
[23:41] <DanDare> Oh, it looks great, sound from scratch is how one learns how to make sounds I presume :p
[23:42] <gordonDrogon> you can play digital audio held in ram via the Pi's HDMI port.
[23:42] <gordonDrogon> so its effectively doing the DAC for you.
[23:43] <DanDare> i see
[23:43] <gordonDrogon> I use a library called SDL-Mixer - it takes blocks of WAV data and mixes and plays them - I generate the WAVs in near real-time.

[23:47] <DanDare> gordonDrogon, unless you use the computer to just trigger your DACs
[23:47] <gordonDrogon> you're generating digital data, then sending it to the DACs - they have a finite resolution.
[23:47] <DanDare> then, DAC output to analog oscillators input = analog output
[23:47] <gordonDrogon> ah right. you didn't say that!
[23:48] <DanDare> :p
[23:48] <gordonDrogon> how many times/sec are you updating the DACs ?
[23:49] * Nik05 (~Nik05@unaffiliated/nik05) has joined #raspberrypi
[23:49] <DanDare> setup for that was: shift register -> R-2R ladder -> oscillator
[23:49] <gordonDrogon> so you made your own DAC...
[23:49] <DanDare> gordonDrogon, yeah.
[23:49] <DanDare> then calibrated to exact musical tones
[23:50] <gordonDrogon> wiringPi can handle up to 4 595 SR's as one unit - so you could have a 32-bit ladder.
[23:50] <DanDare> it sounds enough
[23:50] <gordonDrogon> and you could have about 8 of those on a Pi.
[23:50] <DanDare> the oscillator are VCOs, so the time stamp you define as wanted
[23:50] <gordonDrogon> with a 1�S clock, it's going to take 32 �S to update each unit.
[23:51] <DanDare> I see
[23:51] <gordonDrogon> actually 33�S as after you clock out 32 bits, you toggle the latch pin.
[23:51] <DanDare> thats, i must experiment more to state what is a limit for the update speed
[23:51] <gordonDrogon> but you get the drift.
[23:52] <DanDare> considering X oscillators

[23:53] <gordonDrogon> you can run them faster but wiring, etc. becomes problematic - getting > 1MHz signals into 595 TTL chips ,etc.
[23:53] <DanDare> sure
[23:53] <DanDare> but SR's speed are enough I guess. Arduino is much much slower than the SRs e.g.
[23:53] <gordonDrogon> There are also multi-channel SPI based DACs - they might be a little faster.
[23:54] <DanDare> yeah, thats another option I consider
[23:54] <gordonDrogon> might be more costly, but would save all the resistor wiring.
