[0:05] <iamjarvo> hi all, I followed the vnc instructions but I must have missed something. Here is a screenshot of when i connect to the vnc can anyone tell what's wrong? http://cl.ly/image/3K3U3r272h3u
[0:06] * x1337807x (~x1337807x@c-76-115-7-194.hsd1.or.comcast.net) Quit (Quit: My MacBook Pro has gone to sleep. ZZZzzz…)
[0:07] <shiftplusone> looks like you've got nothing running there
[0:07] <shiftplusone> what instructions did you use?
[0:08] <iamjarvo> http://www.raspberrypi.org/documentation/remote-access/vnc/
[0:08] <iamjarvo> i followed up to running it on the pi
[0:10] <shiftplusone> Those are pretty bad =/. Not sure what's wrong exactly but there are a few warning signs there
[0:10] * cccy_RegeaneWolf is now known as cccyRegeaneWolfe
[0:11] * m8 (~m@unaffiliated/m8) Quit (Quit: Sto andando via)
[0:11] <iamjarvo> so you said i dont have anything running there, does that mean i am connected to the pi but an empty part? or connected to a wrong device
[0:11] * Inspiral (~kvirc@80-44-247-83.dynamic.dsl.as9105.com) Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[0:13] * groundnuty (~groundnut@fivo.cyf-kr.edu.pl) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:13] <shiftplusone> No idea, but since this is the foundation's documentation, I'd open an issue there

[0:19] <ShorTie> adafuits is good
[0:20] <ShorTie> http://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-raspberry-pi-lesson-7-remote-control-with-vnc/running-vncserver-at-startup
[0:21] <ShorTie> but it comes up on port 5901, so you gotta add a :1 to your address
[0:22] * hybr1d8 (~cjd@ has joined #raspberrypi
[0:23] <ShorTie> what does 'ps -ax | grep vnc' say ??
[0:24] <ChaseTrains> about what was said about the 'amps' of a phone charger earlier, it was said that 3A denotes the maximum current the charger can take without breaking. But does it also imply that the charger can output 3A? -- I can imagine a charger with 5V that's unable to output any current, the potential difference is there but not the charges so to speak; is that only in my imagination?
[0:25] <ShorTie> i think the biggy problem with that tut is that it is trying to run it as root
[0:25] <ShorTie> root and X don't really like 1 an other
[0:25] <IT_Sean> The rating on the charger indicates the maximum current that it CAN provide, ChaseTrains.
[0:26] <xmanmonk> ChaseTrains: It should deliver close to a maximum of 3A without an issue. Yes, what IT_Sean said.
[0:27] <ChaseTrains> and above that.. it either breaks or simply don't provide 3A? (which one would you expect?)
[0:27] <xmanmonk> ChaseTrains: It won't reliably provide the proper power. The voltage will likely drop.
[0:27] <ShorTie> even with adafruits tut, you gotta do it as a user or it don't work .. :/~
[0:27] * iceCalt (~iceCalt@p5DDCC7C3.dip0.t-ipconnect.de) Quit (Ping timeout: 255 seconds)
[0:28] <IT_Sean> Indeed. If you tryu to "Suck" more than 3A out of it, the voltage will drop.
[0:28] <IT_Sean> The rating indicates the maximum current it can supply before it drops below the rated voltage, ChaseTrains.
[0:30] <ChaseTrains> ah, thanks :D
[0:31] <ChaseTrains> can you get like a 999999 amp current from a 2v/3mA charger where the volt has dropped to something ridiculously small?
[0:31] <Squarepy> ?
[0:31] <Squarepy> I = R*V
[0:32] <xmanmonk> ChaseTrains: Mathematically, yes. Practically, not really.
[0:32] <IT_Sean> Indeed... Not in practice.
[0:32] <Squarepy> oops
[0:32] <xmanmonk> Squarepy: :) I think you meant i=e/r, right?
[0:33] <Squarepy> getting late here
[0:33] <Squarepy> hehe
[0:33] <plugwash> ChaseTrains, no you will find that no matter how low you drop the load resistance there is still a finite limit to the current
[0:33] * cccyRegeaneWolfe is now known as cccy_RegeaneWolf
[0:33] <[Saint]> I think you mean i, after e, accept after c, times the spped of light squared.
[0:34] <IT_Sean> ... in avacuum.
[0:34] <plugwash> depending on the particular power supply you may also find it trips out or goes up in smoke at some point
[0:34] <[Saint]> That's right. I'm sure.
[0:34] <xmanmonk> [Saint]: Exactly. Think I'll have another...
[0:34] <IT_Sean> It's i after e except next to c, multipled by g, divided by the speed of light in a partial vacuum, innit?
[0:35] <xmanmonk> IT_Sean: Only at sea level.
[0:35] <IT_Sean> Bugger.
[0:35] <IT_Sean> Forgot that bit.
[0:35] <IT_Sean> And on alternate tuesdays, you need to multiply by four.
[0:35] <ChaseTrains> "ChaseTrains, no you will find that no matter how low you drop the load resistance there is still a finite limit to the current", why is that?
[0:35] <IT_Sean> Or is it three?
[0:36] <IT_Sean> You can only draw so much current through a thing before it goes fzzlpop, ChaseTrains.
[0:37] <plugwash> The details of the behaviour depend on the given power supply but as a first approximation you can think of your power supply as being like an ideal voltage source in series with a resistor
[0:37] * ponA (Miranda@HSI-KBW-078-043-254-230.hsi4.kabel-badenwuerttemberg.de) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:38] <plugwash> so the maximum current is set by the value of that "equivilent resistance"
[0:38] * [Saint] is surprised no one has broken out the faucet (or, tap, for me fellow UK-En speakers) analogy yet.
[0:38] <xmanmonk> [Saint]: It happened earlier.
[0:38] <[Saint]> AH. :)
[0:38] * burlyscudd (~burlyscud@metasploit/burlyscudd) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:39] <ChaseTrains> IT_Sean: what makes it go giggelypoff? extremely high ampere, extremely low volt with a power equal to 1 watt or something.. why would it puff then?
[0:40] <[Saint]> Foolish mortals. Trying to comprehend something that is _obviously_ witchcraft.
[0:41] * Encrypt (~Chuck-nor@AMontsouris-553-1-60-101.w92-151.abo.wanadoo.fr) Quit (Quit: Dodo :p)
[0:41] <ShorTie> puff the magic dragon
[0:41] <plugwash> well driving into a short circuit then (assuming no protective devices) the current will be very high. While the voltage delivered to the short circuit will be zero the voltages across components in the PSU will be much higher than normal
[0:41] <[Saint]> There's so many things with electrical flow rate, and amplitude, that just *don't* seem to make any form of sense at all.
[0:41] <[Saint]> At least, at first.
[0:42] <plugwash> combine much higher than normal currents with much higher than normal voltages and the power dissipated in those components will be a heck of a lot higher than normal
[0:42] <plugwash> hence they will get a heck of a lot hotter than normal
[0:42] <plugwash> and quite possiblly go up in smoke
[0:42] <[Saint]> (hopefully, though, it'll just nuke a polymeric fuse)
[0:43] <[Saint]> #welldesignedelectronics101
[0:44] * sutty is now known as sutty\away
[0:44] <[Saint]> But then there's also gap jumping to worry about...
[0:44] <xmanmonk> [Saint]: And quantum tunneling. I hate that.
[0:45] * plugwash recently fixed a BBC master 128 PSU with an open-circuit drain resistor
[0:45] <plugwash> after discovering what the problem was when he got a shock off the unplugged PSU
[0:45] * [Saint] prefers Quantum Leaping.
[0:45] <[Saint]> "Ziggy? Who ami I?!?"
[0:46] <xmanmonk> [Saint]: Ah yes. Way better than quantum tunneling.

[1:05] <xmanmonk> Boscop: 75 Watts? That seems like a bit.
[1:06] <Boscop> xmanmonk: http://www.ebay.com/itm/WS2812B-WS2811-RGB-LED-Strip-5M-150-300-Leds-60LED-M-Individual-Addressable-5V-/231105154168?pt=US_String_Lights_Fairy_Lights&var=&hash=item35cef0cc78
[1:07] <xmanmonk> Boscop: Ah, didn't realize how many LEDs were there.
[1:07] <Boscop> xmanmonk: is my calculation right?
[1:07] <Boscop> i chose 300 leds
[1:07] <Boscop> 5m
[1:08] <pksato> I told other day, Use a ATX PSU to supply 75W@5V. a cheap on $10 to $20.
[1:08] * troulouliou_dev (~troulouli@unaffiliated/troulouliou-dev/x-4757952) Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[1:08] <xmanmonk> Boscop: Not sure. What are the calculaations.
[1:11] * MidnighTok3r (~Toker@unaffiliated/midnightoker) Quit (Ping timeout: 255 seconds)
[1:11] <Boscop> pksato: i couldn't find one with 5v
[1:13] <pksato> not?
[1:13] <plugwash> most ATX power supplies will do 5V at about 20A and they are probablly about the cheapest way to get that kind of current at 5V
[1:14] <pksato> On earth ATX psu have 5V rails, and 12V and 3v3 to.
[1:14] <Boscop> xmanmonk: i based it on this similar one: http://www.aliexpress.com/item/-/1963741279.html
[1:14] <pksato> black and red wires provide GND and 5V.
[1:15] <iamjarvo> i am editing ~/.config/chromium/Default/Preferences but the settings are not sticking around. is there anther file i should edit?
[1:15] <pksato> to power on ATX PSU, connect on 24pin connector, connect the green wire to black.

[1:18] <Boscop> pksato: ah, so any ATX psu will do?
[1:18] <ShorTie> 1 of these types of power supplies http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817170014
[1:18] <pksato> Boscop: yes.
[1:18] * DanDare (~Rodrigo@pdpc/supporter/active/arduguy) Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[1:18] <pksato> cheap 300W PSU.
[1:18] <Boscop> but they pull 300W even if nothing is used?
[1:18] <pksato> no.
[1:19] <Boscop> it needs to be as efficient as possible for portability
[1:19] <Boscop> i have to power the whole system with a car battery
[1:19] <Boscop> for as long as possible
[1:19] <pksato> or a industrial PSU, but cost 10 times more...
[1:19] * iceCalt (~iceCalt@p5DDCC7C3.dip0.t-ipconnect.de) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:20] <Boscop> pksato: so it only draws as much as needed?
[1:20] <pksato> ah? car battery?

[1:23] * Gadget-Mac (~swp@ Quit (Ping timeout: 240 seconds)
[1:25] <Boscop> pksato: i have to power my whole system with the car battery. it includes a laptop, raspberry pi, external soundcard, arduino and the LED strip. what's the best setup?
[1:25] * GadgetDroid (~GadgetDro@ Quit (Ping timeout: 240 seconds)
[1:26] * CoreyIrwin (~CoreyIrwi@ Quit (Ping timeout: 250 seconds)
[1:26] <IT_Sean> That lot isn't going to run for long on a car battery.
[1:26] <Squarepy> turn of the LEDs
[1:27] <IT_Sean> The LEDs are the least of your worries.
[1:27] * pi_user (~pi@pool-173-69-58-172.prvdri.fios.verizon.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:29] <pksato> you neet lots of truck battery. Or one of tesla car.
[1:29] * almostworking (~iam@pool-108-48-14-68.washdc.fios.verizon.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:32] <Boscop> pksato: ok, then let's say i have normal sockets, 230 V, what would be the best setup to power all these devices? it would be good if i could power the pi and the led strip with the same psu
[1:32] <IT_Sean> YOu need a 5v supply for the Pi.
[1:32] <IT_Sean> What's the voltage requirement for the LED strip you want to use?
[1:33] <plugwash> If you need to run off 230V A PC power supply would be ok but probablly less than ideal efficiency wise (modern PC PSUs are optimised for lots of 12V little 5V)
[1:33] * Gadget-Mac (~swp@ has joined #raspberrypi
[1:34] <plugwash> but if you are in a battery setup you are going to be much better off using a converter ike the one pksato linked to go direct from the battery than you are converting up to mains and back down again
[1:34] <IT_Sean> A moden PC PSU will gove you 12v, 7, and 5v, along with a handful of other voltages, depending on the PSU type, such as -12v, 24v, etc...
[1:34] <Boscop> IT_Sean: the led strip also uses 5v, but ~72 watts
[1:35] <SpeedEvil> IT_Sean: It will not give 7, -12, typically
[1:35] <plugwash> no reason you can't run the Pi and the LED strip off the same power supply but i'd want some overcurrent protection in there
[1:35] <Boscop> plugwash: if the whole system is too heavy for a car battery it won't be portable anyway so i will use normal sockets
[1:36] <IT_Sean> SpeedEvil: put a device across the +12 and +5 line,s and you get 7v.
[1:36] <SpeedEvil> Unless you load 5 heavily, you can't draw between 5 and 12
[1:36] <Boscop> plugwash: what kind of overcurrent protection?
[1:37] * plugwash would probablly just use an ordinary fuse rated at 1.5A or so

[1:48] <ShorTie> Gates was just lucky
[1:49] <plugwash> he was lucky but i'm not convinced he was "just" lucky
[1:49] <ShorTie> he was a middle man is all
[1:50] <[Saint]> Flappy Bird guy was "just lucky". Bill actively pursued his "luck", and was, at time, very aggressive about it.
[1:51] <[Saint]> Pretty big difference.
[1:51] <plugwash> for DOS yeah he was just a middle man (promised IBM an OS and then bought a company with a product that would fit the bill) but lets not forget MS made one of the better known basic interpreters already at the time
[1:51] <Squarepy> define luck
[1:52] <[Saint]> hence my quotation marks.

[2:00] <Boscop> can it destroy my devices?
[2:00] <plugwash> most likely it will trip out and turn itself off

[2:02] * wooter (~sup@60-242-209-243.static.tpgi.com.au) has joined #raspberrypi
[2:02] <plugwash> the problem is if you have a device that is intended to draw 1A (like the Pi) and there is a fault in said device, the PSU will happilly deliver 20A or so into that fault indefinately.
[2:02] <plugwash> and that can make the difference between the faulty device being repairable and the faulty device going up in smoke
[2:03] <Boscop> but that only happens if i modify the pi physically, right?

[2:26] <plugwash> iirc the holes on the B are designed for M2.5 screws not sure about the B+
[2:26] <steve_rox> screw with nutt on it
[2:27] <steve_rox> well i only had to enlarge it a bit
[2:27] <steve_rox> really slow with drill tho
[2:27] <steve_rox> yay for 12v drills
[2:27] * plugwash would have bought the correct screws rather than trying to enlarge the holes
[2:27] <steve_rox> heh i cant exactly get out at the moment

[3:00] <jnesselr> I'm having a little trouble setting a keyboard up, and it's not listed in the options for which keyboard model I have. I know when I set up an ubuntu server, it can try to automatically detect the settings. Is this possible here? I have already changed "gb" to "us"
[3:02] <lost_soul> jnesselr: it would help if you told us what distribution your using

[3:04] <lost_soul> jnesselr: see if this is of any help http://raspberrypi.stackexchange.com/questions/10060/raspbian-keyboard-layout
[3:04] <lost_soul> jnesselr: no worries, you did very well.. just missed one key thing is all
[3:04] <jnesselr> yeah, no, I mean I've already googled quite a bit.
[3:05] <jnesselr> All of those guides that say to run dpkg-reconfigure assume that you know your model
[3:05] <jnesselr> Same with editing /etc/default/keyboard
[3:05] <jnesselr> Really, I'm looking for a tool that will ask me to press keys that will then identify my keyboard or something close
[3:05] <jnesselr> It's a holtek semiconductor keyboard if that helps
[3:05] <lost_soul> normally all you really need to know is the number of keys 104, 87.. etc, etc.. whether you want a dvorak keyboard layout.. and the locale
[3:06] <lost_soul> my keyboard is so generic it doesn't even have a name on it.. never been a problem setting it up
[3:07] <lost_soul> jnesselr: can you possibly provide a screenshot of the choices you are given?
[3:07] <IT_Sean> You aren't going to get that specific, nor is there a need to. Just configure the correct layout (104 key, QWERTY, US, for example).

[3:12] <jnesselr> lost_soul: For example, if I hit the \ key, I get #, and if I hit | (Vertical line), I get ~

[4:29] <MY123> [Saint]: Too weak CPU.

[4:31] <[Saint]> Do you practice being wrong, or does it happen naturally?
[4:33] <binaryhermit> routers don't need that much CPU
[4:33] <MY123> [Saint]: If it had two WiFi interfaces, it would be better ( acting as a repeater).
[4:33] <binaryhermit> a RPi is probably overpowered
[4:36] <[Saint]> In fact, repeaters are probably exactly what I'll use them for once I get the production versions.

[5:48] <plugwash> It depends on what exactly you mean by raspbian
[5:49] <plugwash> a raspbian install and an arch install of similar functionliaty are probablly not all that much different
[5:50] <plugwash> BUT the raspberry pi foundation raspbian image is rather on the large side due to the ammount of software they include in it.

[9:00] <flexo_> in a loop i do curl -L someurl.com | grep -q hotspot
[9:00] <flexo_> if $? == 0 i start chromium inside an xvfb
[9:00] <flexo_> to some url
[9:00] <gordonDrogon> flexo_, temp is fine - it's good to 85C
[9:01] <flexo_> a userscript fills in the username and password and connects
[9:01] <gordonDrogon> flexo_, and above that it will underclock itself anyway.
[9:01] <flexo_> gordonDrogon: what about damage to the SoC...
[9:01] <flexo_> will 1ghz harm it?
[9:01] <gordonDrogon> flexo_, it'll shorten its life span - I think I read something like from 35 years to 25 ...
[9:02] <flexo_> so if it's stable i should definitely run it at 1ghz then ;)
[9:02] <gordonDrogon> flexo_, if your red power light goes out, then your power supply needs upgrading.
[9:02] <flexo_> (and add heat sinks and active cooling as i always do)
[9:02] <gordonDrogon> it goes out at 4.6v.
[9:02] <flexo_> i really really like the b+
[9:03] <flexo_> this feels like production quality this time
[9:03] <flexo_> i guess i
[9:03] <flexo_> 'll set 1ghz and let it mine some litecoins for some weeks and see what happens
[9:03] <flexo_> anyway
[9:04] <flexo_> i should have left for work an hour ago
[9:04] <flexo_> really gtg now ;)
[9:04] <gordonDrogon> flexo_, you can't build 3 million B's and not say they're "production quality" though.
[9:04] <flexo_> cheers :)
[9:04] <flexo_> gordonDrogon: well...
[9:04] * Technicus (~Technicus@ Quit (Ping timeout: 255 seconds)
[9:04] <flexo_> gordonDrogon: overclocking made them freeze
[9:04] <flexo_> they had serious voltage issues if attached usb stuff didn't behave nicely
[9:04] <gordonDrogon> maybe - but they're designed to run at 700.
[9:05] <gordonDrogon> the sub voltage is well understood and you have a dodgy PSU - the type of dodgy PSU we've been warning people about all these years.
[9:05] <gordonDrogon> your psu really shouldn't dip to < 4.6v with an hdmi dongle.
[9:05] <flexo_> okay
[9:05] <flexo_> but
[9:05] <flexo_> really gtg now
[9:05] <flexo_> ;)
[9:05] <gordonDrogon> enjoy :)
[9:06] <flexo_> i'll look into a proper psu
[9:06] <flexo_> currently it's just a usb charge thingie with 2A output
[9:06] <flexo_> (and the b+ is happy with it!)
[9:06] <flexo_> anyway! GTG! ;)

[10:08] <lacrymology> hm, forget the /step13* bit
[10:09] <PunIntended> lacrymology: PostgesSQL is better.
[10:09] <SirLagz> I wouldn't bother if all you're going to do is stream from it and use it as a fileserver
[10:09] <SirLagz> but that's me.
[10:09] <lacrymology> yeah, I know.
[10:09] <lacrymology> I'm a programmer, actually, and I deal a lot with databases. Am opinionated about it
[10:10] <SirLagz> lacrymology: do you think MySQL or PGSQL is better then ? I'm curious.

[10:11] * omgmog (~omgmog@ has joined #raspberrypi
[10:11] <lacrymology> youtube and other google services, and facebook are based on MySQL
[10:11] <lacrymology> I think it can be very fast

[10:11] <lacrymology> and I'm guessig there's something about ease of clustering
[10:11] <PunIntended> *and
[10:12] <SirLagz> I've always just used MySQL because that's what I've been used to
[10:12] <SirLagz> but I've started using PGSQL
[10:12] <SirLagz> not that I have any projects that currently use a database
[10:12] <SirLagz> but i will soon
[10:13] <lacrymology> SirLagz: there's a lot of problems with mysql, there's no data security, just for an example, you can ignore non-null non-default fields and it'll fill in zero (or emtpy string) automatically
[10:13] <PunIntended> lacrymology: No, the commercial version is way better than the community one in MySQL.
[10:13] <PunIntended> They just paid Oracle.
[10:13] <SirLagz> lacrymology: data security as in ?
[10:13] <lacrymology> SirLagz: as in data becoming what you expect it to be.
[10:14] <lacrymology> SirLagz: failures when you try to put numbers inside of strings, or viceversa
[10:14] <SirLagz> as in, it lets you do that ?
[10:14] <lacrymology> SirLagz: if you insert "foo" inside a number column in mysql, you get a 0
[10:14] <SirLagz> ah right
[10:14] <lacrymology> in pg you get a failure
[10:14] <SirLagz> I see
[10:14] <lacrymology> that sort of thing, mostly
[10:14] <SirLagz> makes sense
[10:15] <lacrymology> well used they're about the same thing, and I'm sure that if google chooses it, they must have good reason
[10:15] <PunIntended> lacrymology: And MSSQL is one of the worst.
[10:15] <SirLagz> PGSQL also had some nifty backup featurest hat I don't remember the name of lol
[10:15] <lacrymology> but unless you're a top-team of DB ingeneers and expect your projects to have 100M users, pg will save you a lot of headaches
[10:16] <lacrymology> PunIntended: do you know the main differences in Maria?
[10:16] <ChaseTrains> how does 3mA/5V differ from 1mA/5V? I know that these currents have different powers.. but what does that actually mean? Are each electron carrying more "kenetic" energy or more charge perhaps?
[10:16] <ChaseTrains> SirLagz: you sire, are lagging.
[10:16] <lacrymology> I've seen it around, am even using it in dev servers for a mysql project I'm working on, but I'm not on te admin side of things, no idea why they chose them

[10:17] <lacrymology> ChaseTrains: I'm no electrical ingeneer, and I think this is more of a metaphor than the real thing, but more A means MORE electrons
[10:18] <lacrymology> ChaseTrains: ampers is the unit used to measure 'current', voltage is potential difference, so "ampers" are "amount" and "volts" is sort of like "pressure" or "speed" if that makes any sense

[10:20] <PunIntended> If you have any combination of two values from the list: volt, watt,ampers, you can have the third.
[10:20] <lacrymology> that being said, I don't think there're actual electrons traveling across your cables, I think it's more about vibrations or some such thing

[11:30] <ChaseTrains> the pressure after the turbine is lower than that before it. If you add another turbine after the first turbine, pressure builds up after the first turbine causing the pressure difference between input and the first turbine to drop, and that pressure building up between turbine 1 and 2 .. causes a pressure difference between what's before and after turbine 2

[11:57] <MY123> Boscop: You are confusing Wh and W.
[11:58] <Boscop> yes, but how will voltage and amperage change in rleation if i increase the resistance?
[11:58] <Lope> what is the purpose of gid 12 here? tmpfs /var/spool/mqueue tmpfs defaults,noatime,nosuid,mode=0700,gid=12,size=30m 0 0 when I look at my /etc/passwd file the only thing with a number 12 is the man user (for manuals)
[11:58] <Boscop> MY123: no?
[11:58] <Boscop> MY123: i meant mA
[11:59] <MY123> Boscop: If you increase the resistance and consuming the same current, the voltage will be lower.
[12:00] <Boscop> on the electrodes that i put on my head there should be only 2 mA
[12:00] <Boscop> so i need 7500 Ohm to get 2mA out of 15A?
[12:01] <MY123> Boscop: If your powersupply can deliver 1A , it can deliver 1mA without any modification or resistors.
[12:02] <Boscop> MY123: sure, but i need to limit it before it goes into my head
[12:02] <Boscop> because my head closes the circuit
[12:02] <Boscop> more than 2mA is dangerous
[12:03] <MY123> Boscop: There is a device called current limiter or polyfuse out here.

[12:37] <gordonDrogon> there isn't a hexchat in the raspbian packages - it needs to be installed from source.
[12:37] <shiftplusone> Boscop, improve your brain function first, THEN connect electrodes to it.
[12:38] <shiftplusone> (if the urge is still there)
[12:38] <ChaseTrains> it amazes me how little electronic guys knows about physics O_o. For example, they seem to believe that what's causing the circuit always have to be from the same "source" so to speak; the reason that's the case for batteries are pure chemical (the battery needs its electrons back so it can keep reacting chemically and keep up the potential difference). In reality, you can have a (constantly) negative side on earth
[12:38] <ChaseTrains> and a relatively (constantly) positive charge on mars, and pull a one-way wire between them and have a current, without any "feedback" between the 'poles'. How you keep them (dis)charged is trivial problem.
[12:38] <pi_user> sudo apt-get install hexchat ; download the file, unzip it, and read the readme in it, it will tell you how to install it

[12:42] <ChaseTrains> shiftplusone: yes. That's a discharge by definition. But what if you can keep one side deprived of charge, and the other fed with charge? Is it still a discharge?
[12:42] <shiftplusone> how do you intend to do that?
[12:43] * Wazza (~Wazza@66.47-104-213.static.virginmediabusiness.co.uk) has left #raspberrypi
[12:43] <ChaseTrains> battery need to have its electrons back so that it can react chemically and cause a further potential imbalance.
[12:44] <ChaseTrains> shiftplusone: well, on one side I'll have a huge planet of cats that's dragging their bodies against a huge blanket.
[12:44] <ChaseTrains> on the other side, I'll have a huge iron block deprived of electrons.
[12:44] <ChaseTrains> Eventually, you'll "run out of energy" just like with any battery. But no "feedback loop" is needed.
[12:44] <shiftplusone> what's that thing called that has a belt and a dome and a zappy rod and it all makes your hair stand up?
[12:45] <shiftplusone> I forget the name... but that's what you're talking about
[12:45] <ChaseTrains> yeah :). Can you run a raspberry pi with one of those, as if it were a normal current?
[12:45] <shiftplusone> no
[12:46] <ChaseTrains> :o why not?
[12:46] <shiftplusone> you'd generate a massive voltage, but basically no current
[12:47] <shiftplusone> and you can't keep scraping off electrons forever either
[12:47] <ShorTie> it takes voltage to jump a air gap, not so much current
[12:47] <ChaseTrains> what does that mean? doesn't voltage V imply current I, give the resistance R (raspberry pi circuit)
[12:47] <shiftplusone> also why you do go into cardiac arrest every time you get zapped by static
[12:48] <shiftplusone> *don't
[12:48] <shiftplusone> think of it as having very little power
[12:48] <shiftplusone> but a large voltage
[12:48] <Lope> since when is this #electronics-for-beginners ?
[12:49] <shiftplusone> Lope, since last night
[12:49] <ChaseTrains> P=I*V .. and I=V/R
[12:49] <ChaseTrains> so shouldn't a huge voltage from cat, over a really small resistor cause a huge I?
[12:49] <shiftplusone> anyway... back to work
[12:50] <shiftplusone> ChaseTrains, nope. Small resistors are used to protect from cat voltages, in fact.

[15:04] <Encrypt> Hi o/
[15:04] <shiftplusone> hey
[15:04] <Encrypt> I've already talked about that here...
[15:05] <Encrypt> But has anyone tried using the Pi as a remote screen?
[15:06] <Encrypt> I'd like to be able to have a kind of second screen on my TV
[15:06] <Encrypt> To show family photos and why not stream youtube videos there
[15:07] <Encrypt> (When I have stuff to show to friends :p)
[15:08] <Encrypt> But actually, I don't know what I can expect in terms of fluidity
[15:09] <ShorTie> you mean like picture in picture, or a whole other screen ??
[15:09] <Encrypt> Either duplicate the computer screen on the TV
[15:09] * Haxxa (~Harrison@ Quit (Quit: ZNC - http://znc.in)
[15:09] <Encrypt> Or use it as a "second screen" which will be considered as so by the computer
[15:09] <pksato> x11vnc and vncview.
[15:10] * ShorTie still cornfuzed
[15:10] <Encrypt> You know, the same way when you plug a videoprojector to your computer
[15:10] <SpeedEvil> The pi is very, very low perfomance video-wise.
[15:10] <SpeedEvil> Unless it's properly encoded
[15:10] <gordonDrogon> aarg. read that as velocoraptor... was thinging ... aargh ..
[15:11] <Encrypt> Well, I know that the pi is able to decode really fast
[15:11] <Encrypt> I understood that it has a really hgh video resolution
[15:11] <Encrypt> high*
[15:12] <Encrypt> But that wouldn't be that good through the network?
[15:12] <pksato> also, you can use ffmpeg to capture screen, encode as H264 and send to RPi.
[15:12] <SpeedEvil> It relies on the encoding being right
[15:12] <SpeedEvil> vnc won't do it
[15:12] <Encrypt> Yes
[15:12] <Encrypt> I can use anything :p
[15:12] <Encrypt> The other computer is running Ubuntu
[15:12] <Encrypt> So that would be "linux to linux"
[15:13] <gordonDrogon> nfs mount the ubuntu on the Pi and off you go?
[15:13] <Encrypt> SpeedEvil, I also believed that vlc would be slow
[15:13] <Encrypt> Hum
[15:13] <Encrypt> Got to check what nfs does
[15:14] <gordonDrogon> mounts disks on one computer on another.
[15:14] <Encrypt> But that's only for files, right?
[15:14] <gordonDrogon> yes - ah, right - you're streaming from other sources?

[19:48] <gordonDrogon> ChaseTrains, just plug it it. It Will Be Fine.
[19:48] <ChaseTrains> :)
[19:48] <ChaseTrains> hmm.. but won't it need something like 1.5 amps?
[19:48] <ChaseTrains> what could happen? Could I blow the charger for example?
[19:48] <gordonDrogon> for the Pi at least. For USB peripherals, you'll have about 500mA left over - that's assuming your PSU really can source 1 amp at 5 volts - a lot of the cheaper ones can't because they're cheap and they lie to you.
[19:49] <IT_Sean> ChaseTrains, just plug the dammed thing in already!
[19:49] <IT_Sean> Nothing will blow up.

[22:24] <Kanerix> What's the best way to measure CPU temp on the B+ model running the latest raspbian?
[22:26] <Tripout> don't know if its the best way, but "vcgencmd measure_temp" in the shell works. :)
[22:27] <Kanerix> Thank you
[22:27] <Kanerix> I want to figure out if overclocking mine is feasible
[22:27] <shiftplusone> temperature is not very relevant to overclocking the pi
[22:28] <Kanerix> Okay, what should I look for, then?
[22:28] <shiftplusone> Nothing, just go for it.
[22:28] <shiftplusone> it will either work or it won't
[22:29] <Kanerix> If it doesn't work, what does it do?
[22:29] <shiftplusone> If you'd like, take a look at this http://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=29&t=82369
[22:29] <Tripout> just your powersupply is important
[22:29] <shiftplusone> Kanerix, what do you mean by what does it do?
[22:29] <Kanerix> Thank you
[22:29] * MidnighTok3r (~Toker@unaffiliated/midnightoker) has joined #raspberrypi
[22:29] <Kanerix> What does it do if it fails?
[22:30] <IT_Sean> it just won't boot. Or it will boot, and it'll corrupt your SD card.
[22:30] <shiftplusone> In my case it would hang or the SD card would mess up.
[22:30] <IT_Sean> Either way, there will be no permanent damage to the Pi.
[22:30] <Kanerix> Okay, so I should use an SD card specially set up for this
[22:30] <Kanerix> okay
[22:30] <Kanerix> cool
[22:30] <IT_Sean> We didn't say that.

[22:31] * aural (~aural@unaffiliated/necrodearia) Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[22:31] <Tripout> may i ask what's the reason for overclocking?
[22:32] <shiftplusone> A faster pi O_o
[22:32] <Kanerix> I just got it and it's understandably slow in normal operations (700MHz ARM). I'm just wanting it to be less slow
[22:32] <shiftplusone> 1GHz is better than 700MHz or whatever the default is
[22:32] <Kanerix> default is 700
[22:33] <shiftplusone> and on something like the pi, you really do feel the extra 300MHz
[22:33] <Kanerix> When I eventually get into playing with the GPIO, I'll set it back to stockish
[22:33] <MrBIOS> is anyone aware of any thermal measurements that have been taken with the rPi at various clock rates, and various core speeds?
[22:33] <Kanerix> That's good to know
[22:34] <Kanerix> Do any of you have experience with nano USB wifi adaptors?

[22:34] <ChaseTrains> what is the first thing raspberry pi do when it boots? Executes the first byte on the SD-card or what?
[22:34] <Tripout> yes, but but the temperature will raise about +10�C
[22:34] <shiftplusone> MrBIOS, irrelevant. You can maybe get an extra 10 degrees by loading it up 100% and putting it in hot ambient temperature, but it's still nowhere near unsafe temperatures.

[22:35] <shiftplusone> One guys reported that running darkengine or whatever it's called and overclocking the GPU got him to a temperature where the SoC turns off overclocking to cool itself down
[22:35] <Kanerix> I'm looking at this in particular -> http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833315091
[22:35] <MrBIOS> I never said or implied it was unsafe, just asked if someone had ever collected data. I’d specifically be interested to see how overclocking affects power consumption
[22:35] <shiftplusone> so... it takes effort to get there. Nothing you need to worry about under normal conditions
[22:36] <MrBIOS> not worried, just curious :)
[22:37] <Tripout> i recommend running the pi by usb drive and not with sd card. my last sd got corrupted after 2 weeks operation.
[22:37] <shiftplusone> MrBIOS, I didn't say or imply that you asked about safety, I just threw it in there alongside the answer. Power usage doesn't change much either. Not when compared to the power usage of the USB/NIC chip. I don't remember the numbers off the top of my head for it, but you can google it.
[22:37] <MrBIOS> fair enough :)
[22:37] <shiftplusone> Kanerix, that's probably one of the best dongles you can get for the pi.
[22:37] <Kanerix> sweet
[22:37] <Kanerix> it's bloody cheap, too
[22:38] <shiftplusone> Kanerix, The more common ones don't do hardware decryption so they eat up the CPU. That one isn't bad.
[22:38] <MrBIOS> also, someone in here mentioned that it may be possible to use the second UART on the Model B+ pi, now that there are additional GPIO pins wired out….is there any credence to such claims?
[22:38] <shiftplusone> Haven't looked into that one myself
[22:41] <Kanerix> Excellent, thanks for the help, y'all
[22:41] <Tripout> which powersupply do u use for 1ghz overclock? my pi won't boot if i set it to 1ghz with 2000mA powsup
[22:42] <Tripout> i won't overclock it again, because it's set up with all i want and it's running fine at 700mhz, just want to know.
[22:42] <shiftplusone> Then maybe the supply doesn't have anything to do with it in your case and your pi is just can't be overclocked that high
[22:42] <Kanerix> I only have a logitech unifying receiver which only pulls 98 mA (according to lsusb -v) and the whole thing on a 1A supply. Think that'll be enough?
[22:42] <DanDare> Hello. If I do 'rpi-update' is updates some flash area on ARM chip or it goes to the OS files?
[22:43] <shiftplusone> DanDare, doesn't touch any flash area
[22:43] <DanDare> shiftplusone, so If I reinstall the OS I will need to rpi-update again, right
[22:43] <DanDare> *?
[22:43] * Squarepy (~Squarepy@unaffiliated/squarepy) has joined #raspberrypi
[22:43] <shiftplusone> you don't need to rpi-update at all, unless you have a specific reason for it
[22:44] <DanDare> ok. Well, getting trouble with wifi dongle. 'Disabling IRQ#32' freezes and reboots
[22:44] <shiftplusone> but yes, your entire system is contained on the SD card, so if you change sd cards, the firmware changes too
[22:44] <shiftplusone> DanDare, and the new firmware fixes it?
[22:44] <DanDare> shiftplusone, thats why Im asking.. because I didnt tried it yet
[22:45] <DanDare> I hope it fixes it
[22:45] <shiftplusone> ah
[22:45] <DanDare> Bu for what I was reading about the problem, its unlikely :(
[22:45] <shiftplusone> worth a shot, but yeah, I doubt it
[22:45] <shiftplusone> the last few firmware revisions were just internal device tree stuff and dualcam support for the compute module
[22:45] <DanDare> its not a power problem or specific wifi drivers... something to do with how ARM/pi deal with USB packets etc

[23:12] <oots> What do I do?
[23:12] <gordonDrogon> Stick a Wi-Fi dongle on it, but you'll need to use keyboard & screen to set it up.
[23:13] <oots> Wifi dongle?
[23:13] <gordonDrogon> or a usb ethernet dongle.
[23:14] <oots> Er, will that allow me to connect to it via SSH? Is it like a USB to ethernet converter? My pi is headless

[23:16] <gordonDrogon> or Ethernet ...
[23:16] <gordonDrogon> a USB Ethernet dongle may just work, but a Wi-Fi one will require you to use a usb keyboard & screen to set it up.
[23:19] <oots> I don't have extra keyboards and screens
[23:19] <oots> so I was intending to connect via SSH and then VNC
[23:19] <DanDare> gordonDrogon, he can maybe mount the ext4 partition somewhere and tweak /network/interfaces to get it going ?

[23:26] <DanDare> oots, then you can setup some linux VM and use that to mount the SD card and add wireless SSID and password
[23:26] <gordonDrogon> yes - if the ethernet dongle is detected automatically by the Pi
[23:26] <DanDare> or just use some real linux box

[23:40] <Encrypt> And you set the route rules manually I assume?
[23:40] <gordonDrogon> oots, the best way - eventually - will be to use wi-fi in the Pi to also connect to the router in the same way your laptop does.
[23:41] <DanDare> Encrypt, I guess you need just to setup the interfaces file correctly, or have network-manager doing the job. No need to set routes manually
[23:41] <gordonDrogon> oots, however to get there, you will need screen+keyboard on the Pi.
[23:41] <Encrypt> DanDare, Ok :p
[23:41] <Encrypt> We did that the previous school year...

[23:42] <Encrypt> Ok :)
[23:42] <Encrypt> I'll check that :p
[23:42] <DanDare> Encrypt, theres a gui to gnome, i think its called network-manager-gnome. So all you need is press buttons in the screen :D
[23:42] <Encrypt> DanDare, Yes, I have it ;)
[23:43] * snkdr (~snkdr@ has joined #raspberrypi
[23:43] <Encrypt> However, I have to find out how to do tethering thanks the GUI
[23:44] <Encrypt> Because the other day, i successfully (however) managed to help somebody to create another LAN between the Pi and the computer
[23:44] <DanDare> Encrypt, you mean, share the internet from the ubuntu ?
[23:44] <Encrypt> But not thethering
[23:44] <Encrypt> DanDare, Yes :)
[23:44] * snkdr (~snkdr@ Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[23:45] <Encrypt> The person here wanted to share his laptop internet connection (connected with WiFi to teh LAN) with the Raspberry Pi which was directly connected to the computer with a crossed-over RJ45 wire
[23:45] <DanDare> Encrypt, take a look into 'hostapd'. It does that. But its not that simple for me. One can do it just using iptables. But with hostapd you have support to dhcp and others nice stuff
[23:46] <DanDare> I see
[23:46] * snkdr (~snkdr@ has joined #raspberrypi
[23:46] <oots> But initially when it's connected directly to my laptop how would I connect the pi to its internet?
[23:46] <oots> (the laptop's internet)
[23:47] <Encrypt> DanDare, Ok, I'll check that out :)
[23:47] <DanDare> Encrypt, *I mean, setting up hostapd is not that trivial (at least it wasnt for me). I had some hard time tunning it
[23:48] <DanDare> oots, what you mean by connect pi directly to the laptop? over the wifi dongle?
[23:49] <oots> by ethernet dongle
[23:49] <oots> If I'm connected to my pi via SSH
[23:49] <oots> or VNC
[23:49] <oots> how can I share my laptop's wifi connection with the pi
[23:49] <oots> ?
[23:50] <DanDare> oots, remember guys said that ethernet adapter may not work with pi 'out of the box'
[23:50] <Encrypt> He has a model A?
[23:50] <DanDare> oots, try buying stuff that is already know working with pi
[23:50] <oots> Yeah model A
[23:50] <Encrypt> Why? :P
[23:51] <oots> dandare: There was a list of ethernet dongles that worked with the pi I think someone maybe you sent
[23:51] <DanDare> Ah ok
[23:51] * charolastra (~quassel@188-22-247-47.adsl.highway.telekom.at) has joined #raspberrypi
[23:51] <oots> Encrypt: I've had it lying around for a while
[23:51] <Encrypt> Ok :]
[23:51] <oots> DanDare: So if I connected like that how would I share the wifi?
[23:52] <DanDare> oots, you got me confused now :p
[23:52] <DanDare> model A has just 1 USB port
[23:52] <oots> DanDare if I connect my laptop to the pi via SSH by way of the USB-ethernet dongle
[23:52] <charolastra> got a prebuilt wifi driver module. why would modprobe fail with "Exec format error" but insmoding the .ko work fine?
[23:53] <DanDare> so im not sure if you can do both (connect to internet and share it). Unless it will work using a USB hub and connected the two there
[23:54] <Encrypt> oots, Do you have a switch?
[23:54] <oots> Encrypt: A switch? hm?
[23:54] <Encrypt> Or a router with an integrated switch?
[23:54] <DanDare> charolastra, probably the driver was compiled against a different version of kernel images. but not sure
[23:54] <Encrypt> oots, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Network_switch
[23:55] <oots> I have no idea
[23:55] <Encrypt> Because the solution would be to connect it to the switch thanks to an usb to ethernet switch
[23:55] <Encrypt> And then SSH to it
[23:56] <oots> er
[23:56] <DanDare> charolastra, these types of issues http://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=73005
[23:56] <Encrypt> No need to make voodoo rites to share the internet connection :p
[23:57] <Encrypt> And you could also keep it on & use it as a web server, file server...
