[1:09] <shiftplusone> evil_dan2wik, is your time set correctly?
[1:10] <shiftplusone> and do you have ca-certificates installed
[1:10] <evil_dan2wik> time set, yes.
[1:10] <[Saint]> One would have had to explicitely remove it, no?
[1:10] <evil_dan2wik> ca-certs, no.
[1:10] <evil_dan2wik> or at least, I haven't installed it
[1:10] <[Saint]> Is that a "no, I know its not installed" or "I'm not aware, I didn't install it"
[1:10] <[Saint]> Aha.
[1:11] <[Saint]> It _should_ be a default package.
[1:11] <[Saint]> Unless you're using a very minimal base install, which I somewhat doubt.
[1:12] <shiftplusone> that's all I've got https://github.com/Hexxeh/rpi-update#troubleshooting
[1:12] * [Saint] generally advises against using rpi-update unless you have a very specific reason to
[1:13] <[Saint]> ie. jumping to the 'next' kernel branch.
[1:13] <shiftplusone> I've changed my mind about rpi-update and think it's a necessary evil for now.
[1:13] <[Saint]> One of those "leave well enough alone" type things.
[1:13] <bnmorgan> necessary evil is still evil
[1:14] <evil_dan2wik> This is an install I did about a year ago
[1:14] <shiftplusone> (it's not really evil, it's just not debianish)
[1:14] <[Saint]> Why oh why doesn't raspbian handle this ala Arch with metapackages?
[1:14] <[Saint]> shiftplusone: ohhhhh - don;t say that on the forum. ;)
[1:14] <[Saint]> You'll get banned.
[1:14] <[Saint]> :P
[1:14] <shiftplusone> right
[1:15] <[Saint]> (but, you're quite correct - as are those who have said so before and fallen)
[1:15] * plugwash thinks rpi-update is now an unnessacery evil
[1:15] <[Saint]> I solve/avoid this issue entirely by using Arch which handles kernel and firmware updates in a _much_ saner fashion.
[1:15] <ozzzy> debian ain't so great
[1:15] <[Saint]> plugwash: you and me both pal.
[1:15] <shiftplusone> plugwash, does the work you did allow people to install firmware from date x ?
[1:16] <[Saint]> Except I wouldn't say its "now" unneseccary.
[1:16] <[Saint]> I would say it always was.
[1:17] <plugwash> shiftplusone, http://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=66&t=80023&p=582398&hilit=nightly+bootloader#p576613
[1:17] <[Saint]> Does anyone have any insight as to why Raspbian doesn't handle this like virtually every other nixish operating system does?
[1:17] <shiftplusone> Cool, I'll try it out next time I think of using rpi-update and if it does what it says on the tin, recommend it to others.
[1:18] * oldtopman (~oldtopman@unaffiliated/oldtopman) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:19] * CyL (~~cyl@gateway/shell/devio.us/x-hnkvfuiiiakkjzby) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:19] <plugwash> [Saint], well the current situation wasn't really designed, it grew
[1:20] <[Saint]> Leaving raspbian behind definitely wasn't a decision I regret.
[1:21] <shiftplusone> [Saint], also, I've never had to watch my tongue on the forum and have spoken ill of some decisions, rpi-update and so on. People get banned not for what they say, but the way they say it. The people who get banned usually hammer on the same point over and over, whether it's relevant to the thread or not. It's not so much that they present an opposing point of view, but go on tirades of the evi
[1:21] <shiftplusone> ls of doing things the way they don't like.
[1:21] * nitdega (~nitdega@2602:306:2422:eee1:2861:8096:8c0b:3166) Quit (Quit: ZNC - http://znc.in)
[1:21] <evil_dan2wik> No such package: ca-certificates
[1:22] * nitdega (~nitdega@2602:306:2422:eee1:432:7541:ee4a:8ff6) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:22] <shiftplusone> That doesn't sound good O_o
[1:22] * MidnighToker (~Toker@unaffiliated/midnightoker) Quit (Ping timeout: 260 seconds)
[1:22] <[Saint]> No, it doesn't.
[1:22] <plugwash> evil_dan2wik, is this a raspbian system
[1:22] <evil_dan2wik> yes.
[1:22] <[Saint]> It _definitely_ should be there if this is a raspbian system.
[1:23] <[Saint]> Unless you specifically removed it.
[1:23] * CyL (~~cyl@gateway/shell/devio.us/x-hnkvfuiiiakkjzby) Quit (Ping timeout: 245 seconds)
[1:23] <plugwash> [Saint], initially there was no mechanism for updating the firmware other than downloading it manually, hexxeh hacked together rpi-update, the debian packaging came later, then the foundation started de-facto using the debian packages as a "stable" channel and "rpi-update" and similar tools as a bleeding edge channel
[1:24] <plugwash> evil_dan2wik, what is giving you that error? dpkg? apt?

[1:26] * psyclepath (~psyclepat@unaffiliated/psyclepath) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:26] <plugwash> [Saint], this situation persisted until I did some contract work for the raspberry pi foundation, part of that was setting up nightly build images and part of that was setting up a nighly build firmware repo but awareness of said repo still seems low :(

[1:29] <plugwash> hmm, what is the contents of your sources.list? have you run apt-get update recently and if so did it complete without errors?
[1:30] <evil_dan2wik> most of the wolfram sources had no route to host
[1:31] * Macuser (~textual@unaffiliated/macuser) Quit (Quit: My MacBook Pro has gone to sleep. ZZZzzz…)
[1:32] <plugwash> can you remove /etc/apt/sources.list.d/wolfram.list and try running apt-get update again
[1:34] <evil_dan2wik> no more no route to host
[1:34] <evil_dan2wik> The following NEW packages will be installed:
[1:34] <evil_dan2wik> ca-certificates
[1:35] <evil_dan2wik> no idea why it wasn't installed if it comes pre-installed
[1:35] <psyclepath> plugwash, well that channel is dead, meaning nobody in the room
[1:35] <evil_dan2wik> and rpi-update was working last time it was connected to the internet (2 months ago)
[1:38] * _BigWings_ (~Thunderbi@modemcable167.12-130-66.mc.videotron.ca) Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[1:39] <evil_dan2wik> rpi-update is working now.
[1:40] <Tachyon`> why is this fairly stale pi article fourth place in the most popular BBC articles atm? http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-20757261
[1:40] <Tachyon`> has something happened today?
[1:41] * _BigWings_ (~Thunderbi@modemcable167.12-130-66.mc.videotron.ca) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:42] <shiftplusone> O_o
[1:42] * shiftplusone shrugs
[1:42] <shiftplusone> Probably all the traffic from you linking it just then >.>
[1:42] <Tachyon`> I may go backwards through time, my links do not -.o
[1:44] <evil_dan2wik> how do you know
[1:44] <evil_dan2wik> time zones and all that stuff is pretty much time travel
[1:44] <shiftplusone> THere's pycon , but I don't see how it could have anything to do with it.

[2:01] * Tachyon` points out that saints only exist because people believe in the hypothetical
[2:01] <[Saint]> Current observations of our observable universe suggest that you're impossible
[2:02] <[Saint]> Many misguided people believe I exist, though. ;)
[2:02] <ozzzy> and if you were we couldn't communicate with you
[2:02] <Tachyon`> current lack of observations of gods suggest they're implausible

[2:24] <bnmorgan> don't know enough to interpret
[2:25] <shiftplusone> bnmorgan, not really an error
[2:25] <shiftplusone> safe to ignore
[2:25] <bnmorgan> er, ok.
[2:25] <bnmorgan> nothing happens afterward.
[2:26] <[Saint]> Doesn't seem safe to ignore if the end result isn;t starting X
[2:26] <[Saint]> Y'know...'cos starting X seemed to be the intended action. ;)
[2:27] <shiftplusone> [Saint], that particular 'error' isn't really an error and will show up every time.
[2:27] * intothev01d (~intothev0@unaffiliated/intothev01d) Quit ()
[2:27] <shiftplusone> In fact, the output is exactly what you'd expect to see when starting X from ssh
[2:27] <bnmorgan> not getting video signal thru to my monitor either.
[2:28] <bnmorgan> so i'm kinda stuck with ssh till i can get that going
[2:28] <evil_dan2wik> what is the record for the highest Pi overclock without hardware mods or liquid nitrogen?
[2:28] <shiftplusone> bnmorgan, what do you expect to happen when you startx if you have no video output?
[2:28] <bnmorgan> damifino
[2:28] <bnmorgan> that's why i'm here asking for help
[2:28] * amigojapan (~amigojapa@c119045.net21845.cablenet.ne.jp) has joined #raspberrypi
[2:29] <[Saint]> evil_dan2wik: Once upon a time I was holing 1.8GB stable
[2:29] <shiftplusone> bnmorgan, well, exactly that. X started successfully and is running, you just can't see it.
[2:29] <[Saint]> Errr, GHz, rather
[2:29] <evil_dan2wik> Really? ok
[2:29] <shiftplusone> [Saint], Word on the street it that there's a 1.2GHz limit. How did you get around that?
[2:29] <bnmorgan> stay off the street?
[2:30] <bnmorgan> shiftplusone how do i enable video output or whatever i need to do to get it talking thru hdmi to my monitor?
[2:30] <bnmorgan> so that i can use startx
[2:30] <bnmorgan> and see it
[2:30] <shiftplusone> I don't know what the problem is in your case. It should 'just work'.
[2:31] <shiftplusone> And it's a bit too late here to run down the typical troubleshooting questions.
[2:31] <shiftplusone> I'm sure someone will jump in and help though
[2:31] <evil_dan2wik> [Saint], if there is a 1.2GHz limit, then your 1.8GHz clock could just be 1.2
[2:31] <[Saint]> shiftplusone: errr...there is? Is this a recent thing? Or is it possible that it lets one set these values, and even reports these values, but is actually hard limited?
[2:32] <[Saint]> Others have reported _much_ higher clocks.
[2:32] <shiftplusone> http://elinux.org/R-Pi_Troubleshooting#No_HDMI_output_at_all
[2:32] <[Saint]> Like..._MUCH_ higher.
[2:32] * CyL (carvalhais@gateway/shell/devio.us/x-aaommqhrkzakqgtf) has joined #raspberrypi
[2:32] <[Saint]> 2.5GHz+ type higher.
[2:32] <evil_dan2wik> [Saint], there must be, someone got to 3.7GHz with liquid nitrogen
[2:32] <shiftplusone> [Saint], I suspect they were actually running 1.2GHz
[2:32] <[Saint]> Hmmmm.
[2:32] <shiftplusone> I do believe there is a way to get around that limit, but don't know it off the top of my head
[2:33] <bnmorgan> should i have to reboot after connecting monitor?
[2:33] <shiftplusone> I asked since you'd know if you got to 1.8
[2:33] <shiftplusone> bnmorgan, yes
[2:33] * CyL (carvalhais@gateway/shell/devio.us/x-aaommqhrkzakqgtf) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[2:33] <[Saint]> Its been a couple of years since I looked at this.

[2:34] <[Saint]> That doesn't seem to gel with my experiences at all.
[2:35] <[Saint]> That's...odd.
[2:35] <[Saint]> There was noteable instability at high clocks.
[2:35] <bnmorgan> i get video signal from rca but not hdmi

[4:39] <[Saint]> root just needs to point to the new root path.

[4:39] <skyroveRR> My root path is sda1.
[4:39] <evil_dan2wik> yes, and is the FS type ext4?
[4:39] <skyroveRR> Since I'm booting from a USB disk.
[4:39] <skyroveRR> Yes.
[4:40] <evil_dan2wik> do you have any other USB disks plugged in?
[4:40] <skyroveRR> Nope.
[4:40] <evil_dan2wik> do you have a screen connected?
[4:40] <skyroveRR> Nope.\

[4:45] <[Saint]> did you perhaps just dd the image zip to the USB disk?
[4:45] <[Saint]> That would explain that.
[4:45] <[Saint]> If not, you've got _some_ other partition on your USB disk.
[4:46] <evil_dan2wik> I ended up using dd to put the whole raspbian image onto my USB disk which includes the fat32 partition at the start.
[4:46] <[Saint]> right.
[4:46] <evil_dan2wik> which is why I use sda2
[4:46] <[Saint]> if skyroveRR did the same thing, then yes, he'll be in the same position.

[4:49] <skyroveRR> sda2 is swap for me.

[4:51] <skyroveRR> Do I need the "text" word in the cmdline.txt?
[4:51] <[Saint]> If this is raspbian, raspbian uses dphys-swapfile by default anyway and the swap partition is irrelevant.

[5:21] <NedScott> granted it's not that hard to do this with other hardware, but the idea of doing it with a Pi is just fantastic in my mind
[5:21] <NedScott> especially since the Pi can easily run a DVB USB tuner and the like
[5:27] <toresbe> a current PC will be able to do a fairly decent job of that
[5:27] <NedScott> of course
[5:27] <toresbe> To get good hardware H.264 etc you really need crazy ASICs.
[5:27] <NedScott> but not many x86 devices can run off of a battery and only cost about $35
[5:28] <NedScott> In theory a ton of cheap Android hardware should be able to do the same thing, but I'm not sure how accessible hardware encoding is on Android.

[8:30] <gordonDrogon> I'd re-image the SD card at this point...
[8:30] <evil_dan2wik> skyroveRR, does it work otherwise?
[8:30] <gordonDrogon> sounds like some corruption in the kernel image.
[8:31] <skyroveRR> evil_dan2wik: no, hence the... serial connection.
[8:31] <skyroveRR> Wanna know what's going wrong.
[8:31] <evil_dan2wik> if it isn't getting past that, then the image on the card is corrupt
[8:32] <evil_dan2wik> Probably a file in the fat32 partition.
[8:32] <skyroveRR> Can't I somehow scroll up minicom?
[8:32] <skyroveRR> I get lots of output from the kernel buffer before it vanishes.
[8:32] <gordonDrogon> if it stops at the uncompressing bit, then the kernel hasn't started at that poiunt
[8:32] <gordonDrogon> you're seeing bootloader messages.
[8:33] <gordonDrogon> the uncompressing bit is a sort of pre-loader for the kernel itself.
[8:33] <evil_dan2wik> I thought that bootloader doesn't output messages, only the kernel
[8:33] <gordonDrogon> I think there is a line or 2 before the kernel proper, but I've never had a serial port on the Pi.
[8:34] <evil_dan2wik> gordonDrogon, Uncompressing Linux... done, booting the kernel.
[8:34] <evil_dan2wik> and then kernel
[8:34] <gordonDrogon> ah, you get messages?
[8:34] <evil_dan2wik> yeah
[8:34] <evil_dan2wik> oh crap, raining on my Pi through the window.

[8:35] <evil_dan2wik> that isn't normal
[8:35] <evil_dan2wik> the next line should be [ 0.000000] Booting Linux on physical CPU 0x0
[8:35] <gordonDrogon> ok at that point 2 things: 1. the SD card image is corrupt - either a bad SD card or the file itself has somehoe had garbage in it, or 2. the baud rate has been changed in /boot/cmdline.txt
[8:36] <gordonDrogon> either way you need the SD card in another PC to re-image or check.
[8:36] <clever> i think 2 is much more likely
[8:36] <skyroveRR> The SD card looks ok to me.

[8:36] <skyroveRR> No, the network never comes up.
[8:36] <neutrino> the baud rate is fine ... what are the odds that a "uncompressing linux " turns up on a different baud rate !
[8:36] <evil_dan2wik> skyroveRR, remove and copy all the files from the fat32 partition of the card?
[8:37] <evil_dan2wik> neutrino, I can test that now if you want.
[8:37] <clever> neutrino: i think start.elf controls the baud rate of that first message
[8:37] <neutrino> sure !
[8:37] <clever> then linux takes over, and obeys cmdline.txt
[8:37] <neutrino> ah .. i see ..
[8:37] <neutrino> yup then .. as gordonDrogon pointed out

[8:37] <skyroveRR> evil_dan2wik: uh... let me explain the partitions... mmc block 1 is the boot image, but I have the entire rootfs on sda1, my USB HD. I checked the fstab file after mounting my USB HD separately, and it looked ok.
[8:38] <evil_dan2wik> skyroveRR, yeah so?
[8:38] <Sonny_Jim> Did you update /boot/cmdline.txt to tell it where the new root is?
[8:38] <gordonDrogon> if you have a running Pi, then : strings -a /boot/kernel.img | less will show you them.
[8:38] <skyroveRR> Sonny_Jim: obviosuly.
[8:38] <skyroveRR> * obviously.
[8:38] <evil_dan2wik> The Pi boots the kernel before it looks for the root partition
[8:39] <Sonny_Jim> Well, not obvious really. But you've got to work through these things, haven't you?
[8:39] <gordonDrogon> there is basically a little 'shim' program that's at the start of the kernel image that does the uncompressing, then it kicks off the kernel proper.
[8:39] <skyroveRR> gordonDrogon: err... I'll need to mount my SD card separately, one moment.
[8:39] <nashi> I wonder what the max reasonable bandwidth is on the b+ for the whole gpio pin setup, if someone were to design, say, a sata2 or gigabit to pi gpio fullset adapter
[8:40] <nashi> anyone got any ballpark guestimates?
[8:40] <clever> nashi: i think i was able to get 20mhz bit-banging a square wave on a single pin
[8:40] <neutrino> nashi: they can swithc at 40 MHZ
[8:40] <neutrino> thats the maximum
[8:40] <neutrino> that anyone has ever got
[8:40] <clever> neutrino: and if you can get all 32 bits of a single port, you could move 32bits at 20 or 40mhz, depending on if i'm remembering right or neutrino is right
[8:41] <nashi> but then the cpu overhead.... trying to do that to all of them for a parallel bus for max bandwidth
[8:41] <nashi> and then the timing..... and translation loads on the cpu
[8:41] <clever> nashi: i also noticed, if you bit-bang the gpio like that, the cpu will basicaly stall
[8:41] <evil_dan2wik> neutrino, the uncompressing kernel bit is 115200, then the kernel uses the set baud rate
[8:41] <neutrino> nashi: http://codeandlife.com/2012/07/03/benchmarking-raspberry-pi-gpio-speed/
[8:41] <nashi> ty neutrino
[8:41] <clever> so if the cpu is running at 700mhz, but your banging out 40mhz of data, the cpu will effectively be running at 40mhz
[8:41] <skyroveRR> gordonDrogon: ha! Ran the strings command how do I paste the output?
[8:42] <clever> the other 630mhz of cpu power is going to waste and cant be used at all
[8:42] <clever> 660*
[8:42] <gordonDrogon> skyroveRR, it's just for your own personal use - no need to paste it - I'm sure the firstpage is the same for everyone.
[8:42] <evil_dan2wik> skyroveRR, how did you run that?
[8:42] <skyroveRR> gordonDrogon: the same way gordonDrogon told me to.
[8:42] <skyroveRR> * evil_dan2wik .
[8:43] <gordonDrogon> you need a running Pi - actually, any running Linux - it's the same for most of them I think.
[8:43] <evil_dan2wik> ok.
[8:43] <clever> nashi: your biggest problem will be jitter, tons and tons of jitter
[8:43] <gordonDrogon> almost - I just looked on my desktop - the messags are there, but slightly different.
[8:43] <evil_dan2wik> The Pi takes 20 seconds to boot with baud rate set to 9600 vs the 6 seconds it takes with 115200
[8:43] <skyroveRR> gordonDrogon: what am I looking for exactly?
[8:44] <clever> so you cant send data out on a regular rate at any decent speeds
[8:44] <neutrino> clever: its 20 MHz .. i was wrong
[8:44] <gordonDrogon> skyroveRR, nothing - I just posted that as a bit of interst to show that the UNcompressing bit is part of the kernel image.
[8:44] <clever> neutrino: the link gordonDrogon gave goes up to 22mhz
[8:44] <evil_dan2wik> skyroveRR, have you tried copying the fat32 partition again?
[8:44] <skyroveRR> Ok then, now what?
[8:44] <evil_dan2wik> just copy the files
[8:44] <skyroveRR> No.
[8:44] <nashi> clever, yeah..... so its basically useless to even think of trying, since usb2 can easily get up to 40MB/s reliably, in general
[8:44] <gordonDrogon> skyroveRR, really - at this point, I'd reimage the SD card.
[8:44] <Sonny_Jim> clever: ooh I found out all about that jitter, and when I did my own tests those results from that webpage could best be described as 'optimistic' to say the least
[8:45] <neutrino> clever: yes 22 MHZ
[8:45] <clever> nashi: 32 bits at 22mhz could get you 640mbit/sec
[8:45] <skyroveRR> Ok, reflashed.
[8:45] <skyroveRR> One sec.
[8:45] <nashi> but without a cpu at all to do things with while its doing that.
[8:45] <nashi> more or less
[8:45] <clever> nashi: but that would leave no cpu cycles free to do anything else, and you also need a dedicated clock pin to deal with jitter, which will halve your data rate
[8:46] <nashi> yah
[8:46] <gordonDrogon> that GPIO benchmarking web page is somewhat old now, however the results won't change much,
[8:46] <clever> my rough math says that writing to the gpio port will basicaly consume 35 clock cycles
[8:46] <clever> and if you push it right to 20mhz, that will be 100% cpu usage
[8:46] <clever> no mater how much you overclock the core
[8:46] <clever> you would have to overclock the broadcom version of the FSB, where the gpio lives
[8:46] <nashi> Im just really really leaning toward the minnowboard max now.
[8:47] <skyroveRR> Umm.. I only flashed the miniroot, should it be ok?
[8:47] <skyroveRR> Just for testing purposes....
[8:47] <evil_dan2wik> miniroot?
[8:47] <gordonDrogon> I've been told both yes and no to my questions of gpio speed being locked to a particulat clock speed - the 19.2 Mhz clock.
[8:47] <skyroveRR> Yeah, slackware miniroot.
[8:47] <evil_dan2wik> you don't even need the miniroot
[8:47] <skyroveRR> Why?
[8:47] <gordonDrogon> so evnen running tight loop in assember, 19.2M pokes/sec to the gpio is the limit.
[8:47] <evil_dan2wik> the kernel will boot even if there is no root present
[8:48] <evil_dan2wik> it just won't do anything useful
[8:48] <clever> gordonDrogon: my theory says that the gpio lives on a slower bus, along side the ram and other modules, and accessing it is basicaly the same as a cache miss
[8:48] <skyroveRR> Then I flash the entire distro??
[8:48] <neutrino> clever: not sure how the gpio is implemented on the
[8:48] <gordonDrogon> clever, that makes sense and will limit the max. speed.
[8:48] <neutrino> Pi
[8:49] <neutrino> are all the pins controlled using the same register ?
[8:49] <clever> what i havent tested fully, is when and where the 35 clock cycle stalls are, when you bit-bang a 20mhz square wave
[8:49] <evil_dan2wik> skyroveRR, with serial connected, the kernel will output useful data even without a root partition
[8:49] <clever> does it stall on every write, or only the 2nd write when the buffer clogs up?
[8:49] <clever> could you write to gpio, then sneak in 34 cycles of computing, and then send another right at exactly the right time?
[8:49] <evil_dan2wik> skyroveRR, if it gets past the de-compression and then doesn't have a heart attack, then you can assume that it is booting properly.
[8:51] <clever> gordonDrogon: what cant be seen in the scope traces on that site, every now and then, it will just freeze in a state for several ms
[8:51] <evil_dan2wik> skyroveRR, I think that even the hdmi display is initialised by the time the root partition is being loaded.
[8:51] <gordonDrogon> clever, that's the video and main memroy refresh cycles.
[8:52] <gordonDrogon> (AIUI)
[8:52] <clever> and kernel scheduling
[8:52] <gordonDrogon> bit of that too.
[8:52] <clever> when i was testing things out, i used kernel mode, and i forced it to schedule between every bit flip
[8:52] <clever> it dropped into the khz range
[8:52] <clever> i was forcing it to do that long hang between every bit, rather then at random times
[8:52] <clever> i also had the option of turning irq and scheduling off, so linux cant interupt things

[8:53] <evil_dan2wik> skyroveRR, is it booting?
[8:54] <clever> about the only sane route i can sudjest, is to get an ethernet module on something proper, like an ardruino ethernet shield
[8:54] <clever> use the AVR real-time os for the timing sensitive stuff
[8:54] <skyroveRR> evil_dan2wik: the serial connection stopped working.. IDK why.
[8:54] <clever> then ship the data out over ethernet, and into the pi
[8:54] <evil_dan2wik> ok.
[8:54] <evil_dan2wik> What is the baud rate defined in the cmdline.txt
[8:54] <clever> that will get you up to the max speed of the pi's USB port, with simple interfacing
[8:55] <skyroveRR> Err... oops. the baud rate is gone. I forgot... I reflashed the miniroot on the card and didn't enter the commands inside cmdline.txt
[8:55] <skyroveRR> Anyways, I'll play with it later on, I'm too tired now.

[8:56] <clever> neutrino: but more exensive to get high bandwidth
[8:56] <clever> neutrino: so you have to pick between latency and bandwidth
[8:56] <clever> or program the avr chip to do the latency sensitive stuff on its own
[8:57] <clever> and ship the bulk processing over ethernet to the pi where latency isnt as important
[8:57] <neutrino> hmm
[8:57] <clever> that also makes development much simpler
[8:58] <clever> you can replace the pi with a regular desktop running normal linux for development
[8:58] <neutrino> what about DMA ?

[9:00] <neutrino> no idea .. are they all the same port ?
[9:00] <gordonDrogon> clever, you can on the compute module
[9:00] <neutrino> gordonDrogon: are they the same gpio port on the header ?
[9:00] <gordonDrogon> the Pi has 2 banks of gpio's. one has 32 bits the other 28.
[9:01] <clever> neutrino: due to routing issues on the pcb, the header is a jumble of gpio pins, mostly out of order and scrambled up
[9:01] <gordonDrogon> some ofthem are used on the B & B+ for internal stuff.

[9:01] <clever> for a performance hit, you can correct that in software
[9:02] <gordonDrogon> I did imprement an 8-bit write in wiringPi, but it has to do some bit-twiddling to work.
[9:02] <clever> but then you cant just bang a 32bit word out the entire port in one instruction
[9:02] <gordonDrogon> well - you need 2 instructions, one to set the 0 bits and one to set the 1 bits.
[9:02] <clever> i think the compute module also has the gpio pins scrambled and out of order, but they are all available
[9:03] <gordonDrogon> clever, they're all in-order.
[9:03] <clever> and you can just make the host board bigger to handle that and re-align them
[9:03] <clever> ah
[9:03] <clever> wasnt sure how much of a routing issue that would have been
[9:03] <gordonDrogon> hm. hang on - the CMIO board has them in-order, so I imagine it's not hard to get them from the CM to the CMIO board in-order.

[9:18] <evil_dan2wik> I have no idea what that is.

[9:20] <clever> there is a point where it will begin to malfunction, so youll want to find that and set it below that
[9:21] <clever> but without profiling, you wont know if its even worth the risk of bordering on malfunctioning
[9:22] <evil_dan2wik> so, too fast and it starts to affect the ram or the broadcom chip?
[9:22] * lazy_prince (~killer_pr@ Quit (Ping timeout: 260 seconds)
[9:22] <clever> if it goes too fast, it will have a high chance of returning bad data
[9:22] * troulouliou_dev (~troulouli@unaffiliated/troulouliou-dev/x-4757952) has joined #raspberrypi
[9:22] <clever> and then your programs will crash in weird ways
[9:23] <evil_dan2wik> so, what if ram speed is 400MHz and CPU frequency is 400MHz?
[9:23] <evil_dan2wik> will it cause errors then?
[9:23] <clever> depends on if the ram can run at 400mhz
[9:23] <clever> but then your defeating the entire purpose of the L1/L2 cache
[9:25] <evil_dan2wik> my ram is currently running at 427MHz because it was stable at 430MHz, but not 435MHz
[9:25] <clever> basicaly, if you run the ram at 400mhz, and the cpu core at 800mhz
[9:25] <evil_dan2wik> but, I am wondering if there would be any performance increase if I changed it to something divisible by the clock frequency.

[9:25] * aural (~aural@unaffiliated/necrodearia) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[9:25] <clever> then the cpu would want data twice as fast as the ram can serve it
[9:26] <clever> the solution to that problem, is the L1 cache, a small chunk of ram that can run at 800mhz
[9:26] <evil_dan2wik> CPU core it currently running at 1073MHz
[9:26] <clever> so when your dealing with data that fits in the L1 cache, it all runs at 800mhz
[9:26] * proteusguy (~proteusgu@ Quit (Ping timeout: 240 seconds)
[9:26] <clever> or 1073mhz
[9:26] <clever> but as soon as you try to access data not in the L1 cache
[9:26] <clever> it has to wait for the 427mhz memory bus to reply
[9:26] <evil_dan2wik> ok.
[9:27] <evil_dan2wik> Also, is there any performance decrease if I set the GPU core speed to 10MHz?
[9:27] <clever> so basicaly, if you try to access anythng in the L1 cache, it will run in 1 clock cycle
[9:27] <clever> but if you try to access something outside the cache, it will take ~3 clock cycles
[9:28] <clever> increasing the ram clock will reduce that 3 clock cycle time, but profiling tells you how much it actualy happens
[9:28] <clever> dont know what the gpu core would effect
[9:28] <evil_dan2wik> ok.
[9:28] <evil_dan2wik> Well, I don't use the HDMI
[9:28] <clever> crank it down and see what happens
[9:29] <clever> i have ran the main core at under 100mhz before, just to see what happens
[9:29] <clever> the SD card times out a bunch, and it locks the FS to read-only mode, lol
[9:29] <evil_dan2wik> If the cpu speed is evenly divisible by the ram speed, will it perform better or worse than something ~20 MHz higher/lower?
[9:30] <evil_dan2wik> clever, there is a emmc clock speed setting to fix that.
[9:30] <clever> i think it would divide and round up
[9:30] <clever> so in your previous example of 1073mhz and 427mhz, it comes out to 2.51
[9:30] <clever> but the cpu cant stall for 2.5 clocks, so it would stall for atleast 3 clocks
[9:31] <clever> plus more, since it has to fill an entire cache line (that improves performance)
[9:31] <clever> but i dont know the size of the cache line
[9:31] <clever> or the other finer details
[9:31] * clever pokes gordonDrogon
[9:32] <clever> and then you have to keep in mind, is it a 8bit, 16bit, or 32bit DATA bus between ram controller and L1 cache?
[9:32] <clever> how does the L2 cache come into play?

[12:58] <gordonDrogon> RahulAN, you've told your Pi via config.txt to force a particular resolution. is this what you intended?
[12:58] <[Saint]> Its somewhat sad to think the pi beats it in almost every respectr.
[12:58] <[Saint]> *respect

[13:00] <gordonDrogon> the 2 lines after that are uncommented, therefore the Pi is being forced into VGA mode.

[13:02] <Sonny_Jim> [Saint]: Well, what I meant was that both the Pi and the N900 are fairly open systems, compared to something like Android
[13:02] <[Saint]> In future, now you know where the documentation is.
[13:02] <[Saint]> But I suspect you already knew this.
[13:03] <Sonny_Jim> ie If I wanted, I could setup a wifi hotspot to rickroll people on my Pi/N900, can't really do that on Android without rooting it
[13:03] <[Saint]> Sonny_Jim: Android is _very_ open.

[13:04] <[Saint]> You're confusing things.
[13:04] <[Saint]> Android itself is very open.
[13:04] <Sonny_Jim> Read my comments again
[13:04] <[Saint]> Vendor/device specific bootloaders and modem firmware, however...
[13:05] <[Saint]> I did read your comments.
[13:05] <[Saint]> Its not Android keeping you out.
[13:05] <Sonny_Jim> Errr
[13:05] <Sonny_Jim> It just seemed to me that with the Pi/N900, you are almost expected to hack it about
[13:05] <Sonny_Jim> Rather than being tied into Google Play for everything
[13:07] <[Saint]> Android isn't.

[13:07] <Sonny_Jim> Isn't what?
[13:07] <[Saint]> tied into Google play.
[13:07] <Sonny_Jim> Right
[13:08] <Sonny_Jim> So what do you think I'm confused about specifically?
[13:08] <[Saint]> Well, you just contradicted yourself, so you tell me.

[13:10] <Sonny_Jim> Apart from the bare functions of browsing/phone/text?
[13:10] <[Saint]> You're aware that you can sideload Android applications and that third party markets exist, right?
[13:11] <Sonny_Jim> That requires rooting it, doesn't it?
[13:11] <SpeedEvil> no
[13:11] <[Saint]> No.
[13:11] <Sonny_Jim> oh
[13:11] <[Saint]> NP. I wasn't trying to take you to school. You seemed genuinely confused. That's all.
[13:11] <[Saint]> No biggie.
[13:11] <Sonny_Jim> take me to school?
[13:11] <Sonny_Jim> You know, you could be less abrasive when talking to people
[13:12] <Sonny_Jim> rather than sounding like an arrogant twit
[13:12] <[Saint]> Says the guy being directly and deliberately abusive because he misunderstands the tone of someone else.
[13:12] <[Saint]> Nice.
[13:12] <evil_dan2wik> cool it pls.
[13:13] <Sonny_Jim> The only bit I'm confused about is how you can have an Android operating system without having to use Google Play or having to reflash
[13:14] <[Saint]> That's the way Android comes by default.
[13:14] <evil_dan2wik> Sonny_Jim, use the app store.
[13:14] <[Saint]> Google Play wasn't there until you added a Google account to it.
[13:14] <[Saint]> I suspect you didn't notice that, maybe? That's usually the first thing people do. But, you needn't /have/ to.
[13:14] <evil_dan2wik> [Saint], not the first thing I did
[13:15] <evil_dan2wik> The first thing I did was somehow corrupt the android operating system by declining the license agreement
[13:15] <[Saint]> Heh. Nice.
[13:16] <SpeedEvil> Android is very much not the same ifyou do not use the non-opensource android bits provided as binaries by google

[13:16] * zoidberg- (~zoidberg@ has joined #raspberrypi
[13:16] <[Saint]> I do.
[13:17] <SpeedEvil> It's androids means of control of devices - making users want google apps installed on their devices, rather than simply an open-source release
[13:17] <SpeedEvil> with googles stuff, it's 'normal' android - but the device maker has to jump through _just_ the right hoops and stroke google just right.
[13:18] <SpeedEvil> Or google won't give permission.
[13:18] <[Saint]> And they know that before even considering producing a device.
[13:18] <zoidberg-> Hello all i have a wierd problem, i am running raspbian on my raspberry pi model b. I have 4 network interfaces, 3 usb ethernet dongles (same make), 1 on board nic. on board nic goes to my modem, and the other 3 to switches howeevr, on the other 3 if i plug them independently into a computer to get a dhcp lease i get the wrong ips assigned for the interface, e.g. eth3 = i plug in there and get a address which is the add
[13:18] <zoidberg-> coudl it be a usb issue?
[13:18] <zoidberg-> has anyone seen this before?
[13:18] <[Saint]> Its a way of introducing consistent experiences.
[13:18] <zoidberg-> it's driving me mad :(
[13:18] <[Saint]> Not a way of enforcing control.
[13:18] <SpeedEvil> [Saint]: Two sides of the same coin
[13:19] <[Saint]> Android's major problem is vendor fragmentation.
[13:19] <[Saint]> If Google didn't impose such rules for the use of Android...things would be very ugly.
[13:19] <Sonny_Jim> Same could be said for any walled garden
[13:19] <SpeedEvil> [Saint]: Even the most ardent enthusiast can't say that having to be able to be vetted before producing a device is always a good thing.
[13:20] <[Saint]> Wouldn't you want to make sure that something showcasing your work did it in the best way possible?
[13:20] <gordonDrogon> zoidberg-, if the Pi is acting as a router, shouldn't you be statically configuring all the interfaces and running dhcpd on the Pi?
[13:20] <[Saint]> I would find it hard to think anyone else would act any differently in the same situation.
[13:21] <zoidberg-> gordonDrogon: i am - you misunderstood me. They all have static ips, when i was getting odd behaviour on my switches with vlans configurd, so i plugged directly my computer to the raspberry pi, and got DHCP on the computer from the PI
[13:21] <zoidberg-> depending on what interface i plug into
[13:21] <zoidberg-> the problem lies it dishes me out the wron ip to what im plugged into
[13:21] <zoidberg-> yet dnsmasq is configured correctly as you can see in my pastebin
[13:21] <zoidberg-> if i remove the third usb dongle everything works fine
[13:21] <zoidberg-> apart from that interface
[13:21] <gordonDrogon> not looking as I don't use dnsmasq
[13:21] <zoidberg-> heh
[13:22] <zoidberg-> its not an issue with dnsmasq but nevermind.
[13:22] <gordonDrogon> I use named and isc-dhcp-server
[13:22] <zoidberg-> Yes yes, whatever. You're obviously here to brag about yourself.
[13:22] <Sonny_Jim> lol
[13:22] <zoidberg-> Has anyone else experienced any funny behaviour like this?
[13:22] <gordonDrogon> zoidberg-, ok, whatever, good luck with it.
[13:22] <Sonny_Jim> What is it with people this morning, Monday blues or something?
[13:22] <[Saint]> And you apparently don't want support.
[13:23] <zoidberg-> [Saint]: i wasn't getting support from gordonDrogon.
[13:23] <gordonDrogon> you might have done if you hadn't been a pratt.
[13:23] <[Saint]> ^ that
[13:23] <zoidberg-> I don't see how i've been a pratt?
[13:23] <zoidberg-> gordonDrogon: you're hgiher than mighty attitude didn't gel well i'm sorry if i offended you.
[13:24] <Sonny_Jim> So what's dishing out the IP addresses? dnsmasq?
[13:24] <gordonDrogon> saying stuff like that really doesn't hlep.
[13:24] <zoidberg-> the problem lies with usuing multple usb dongles of the same make/model
[13:24] <zoidberg-> its getting confused
[13:24] <zoidberg-> Sonny_Jim: correct, yet the underlying wasy raspbian ties hardware to the interfaces seems broken
[13:24] <Sonny_Jim> Pretty sure you can set udev rules to specify which order the devices come up as (eth0-eth2)
[13:24] <Sonny_Jim> Tied to the MAC iirc
[13:24] <zoidberg-> Sonny_Jim: its not that
[13:24] <zoidberg-> Sonny_Jim: on the raspberry pi itself, the interfaces are configured correctly
[13:24] <zoidberg-> they dont get the wrong ip's or anything
[13:24] * Macuser (~textual@unaffiliated/macuser) has joined #raspberrypi

[13:25] * skyroveRR (~skyroveRR@unaffiliated/skyroverr) has joined #raspberrypi
[13:25] <zoidberg-> which makes it sound liek a dns masq problem granted
[13:25] <Sonny_Jim> I'm having trouble understanding your last two sentances
[13:25] <Sonny_Jim> So when you have two eth dongles, it works?
[13:26] <zoidberg-> Sonny_Jim: ok, so its not to do with boot order of interfaces. eth2 =, eth3 =
[13:26] <zoidberg-> Sonny_Jim: if i plug into eth2, i get 192.168.1.x ip
[13:26] <zoidberg-> Sonny_Jim: if i plug into eth3 i get 192.168.3.x ip
[13:26] <zoidberg-> dnsmas listens on eth2 and dishes out .3.x addresses
[13:26] <Sonny_Jim> Definitely sounds like a misconfigured dhcpd
[13:26] <zoidberg-> dnsmasq listens on eth3 and dishes out .4.x addresses
[13:26] <zoidberg-> Sonny_Jim: I know thats what it sounds like/looks like but it isn't.
[13:27] <zoidberg-> if i remove the last usb dongle eth3 it all works fine..
[13:27] <Sonny_Jim> You haven't farted around with iptables at all?
[13:27] <zoidberg-> yes i have a firewall doing source based policy routing and NAT/MASQ
[13:27] <zoidberg-> but again, that is not the issue, i am fairly certain the issue is around these:
[13:28] <zoidberg-> http://codepad.org/wdTVE3hd
[13:28] <zoidberg-> using 3 of the same usb dongles seems to cause this issue
[13:28] <zoidberg-> there is no tying of mac addresses to interfaces
[13:28] <zoidberg-> in the udev rules like debian does automatically
[13:28] <zoidberg-> i wondering if this is the issue
[13:28] <zoidberg-> i ruled out fireall/dhcp
[13:28] <Sonny_Jim> Err
[13:28] <zoidberg-> ?
[13:29] <Sonny_Jim> check out : /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules
[13:29] <Sonny_Jim> Oh wait, it doesn't exist
[13:30] <evil_dan2wik> I have no idea if my Pi is stable or not with my overclock settings. The minecraft server running on it starts to start up and then half way through, it just goes back to the terminal.
[13:31] <Sonny_Jim> zoidberg-: So what stops working when you plug in the third dongle?
[13:31] <zoidberg-> Sonny_Jim: that fille doens't exist thats what i wondered
[13:32] <zoidberg-> Sonny_Jim: when i plug it in (nothing happens) but then if i plug my laptop directly to the pi on eth2 or eth3 i get the wrong addresses
[13:32] <zoidberg-> i remove eth3 device
[13:32] <zoidberg-> i get the rgith addresses
[13:32] <zoidberg-> *right
[13:32] <Sonny_Jim> Weird
[13:32] <zoidberg-> it's as if when i plug in the 3rd device the raspberry pi gets confused which piece of hardware belongs to which interface
[13:32] <Sonny_Jim> Tying MACs to eths isn't going to fix that
[13:32] <zoidberg-> and then services running on that interface mess up
[13:32] <zoidberg-> was just a thought (im out of ideas now) hence comming here to ask for help
[13:33] <zoidberg-> its such an odd problem google doesnt help me either :(
[13:33] <Sonny_Jim> Did you post a link to your network configuration?
[13:33] <zoidberg-> i mean how bizarre is this, right now i am plugged into eth2 (i should get an 192.168.3.x ip - instead i get 192.168.1.x ip)

[13:35] <[Saint]> Yeah, isn't it.
[13:35] <zoidberg-> unfortuantley 192.168.2.x is due to my crappy modem
[13:35] <Sonny_Jim> I'd start by changing that to something more legible
[13:35] <zoidberg-> Sonny_Jim: if i do that right now ill have to change a lot of other things in my network
[13:35] <Sonny_Jim> Like eth=, eth1 =, eth2 = etc
[13:36] <zoidberg-> yeah i know what ya mean
[13:36] <Sonny_Jim> At least swap around eth1/eth0
[13:36] <zoidberg-> forget about eth1 thats my modem (draytek vigor)
[13:36] <zoidberg-> ok moving forward i wil but i cant really do it right now

[13:56] <zoidberg-> Sonny_Jim: i used /etc/hosts for dns of dnsmasq

[14:21] <zoidberg-> should i remove it or add new lines fo each of the new networks so it can pick the correct one?
[14:21] <zoidberg-> (does that make sense to you ^^)?

[14:23] <zoidberg-> Sonny_Jim: http://codepad.org/r9FdBdyc <-- /etc/hosts
[14:23] <Sonny_Jim> Then I looked at the logs
[14:23] <zoidberg-> i think you were right
[14:24] <zoidberg-> but not sure best way to fix, shoudl i juse remove the host entry for that ip in /etc/hosts?
[14:24] <zoidberg-> or add one for .3 and .4 networks?
[14:24] <Sonny_Jim> It's taking the IP address for a host from /etc/hosts rather than taking it from the DHCP pool?
[14:24] <zoidberg-> i think thats causing problems
[14:24] <zoidberg-> yes
[14:24] <zoidberg-> im not 100% sure but the logs claim that
[14:25] <Sonny_Jim> You could just try commenting out the entry in /etc/hosts to test
[14:25] <zoidberg-> ok
[14:25] <zoidberg-> bare with me ill do that now
[14:26] * samrat (~samrat@ Quit (Quit: Computer has gone to sleep.)
[14:26] <Sonny_Jim> Ah even easier
[14:26] <Sonny_Jim> just put "no-hosts" into dnsmasq.conf
[14:26] <zoidberg-> ok and then restart dnsmasq?
[14:26] <Sonny_Jim> Should stop it from checking /etc/hosts
[14:26] <zoidberg-> ok lets see
[14:27] <zoidberg-> http://codepad.org/X7Ip3OhQ <-- ok it looks like this now
[14:27] <zoidberg-> im going to tail the daemon.log and plug in and out of each interface

[14:36] * Mogwai (~mogwai@ has joined #raspberrypi
[14:38] <zoidberg-> hey
[14:40] <Mr_Sheesh> Question for you folks; What sort of machine would you set up for an RPi development system? I want to change some existing code to talk to a new device - Was thinking of adding a USB hard drive or perhaps a regular thumb drive for the source, probably run it headless and PuTTY in, though I could put the HDMI to VGA adapter I have on there. What do folks use for this?
[14:41] * Tachyon` is now known as Tach[Eorzea]
[14:42] <[Saint]> Frankly...I wouldn't.
[14:42] <gordonDrogon> Mr_Sheesh, I develop on the Pi itself.
[14:43] <Sonny_Jim> Same here
[14:43] <[Saint]> Oh. I seem to have misparsed that.
[14:43] <Sonny_Jim> Well, I don't use any complicated IDE, just vim with couple of scripts
[14:43] <gordonDrogon> some bigger stuff I devleop on my desktop initially, but that's running Debian wheezy, so checking it on the Pi is trivial.
[14:43] * skylite (~skylite@business-178-48-4-145.business.broadband.hu) has joined #raspberrypi
[14:43] <gordonDrogon> vim & makefiles here.
[14:43] <Mr_Sheesh> That's what I meant - RPi with a hub on it and either a USB HDD on the hub, or, USB thumb drive on the hub
[14:43] <[Saint]> I was thinking he meant settings up a pi *as* the Dev system.
[14:43] <[Saint]> Aha.
[14:43] <evil_dan2wik> I have my CPU frequency set to 1200MHz, ram is 600MHz, I wonder if the OC is stable.
[14:43] <Sonny_Jim> What's the USB drive for?
[14:44] <gordonDrogon> Oh, I NFS mount my servers on them.
[14:44] <[Saint]> Because SD is terrible.
[14:44] <Mr_Sheesh> for source
[14:44] <gordonDrogon> as I do on my desktop.
[14:44] <Sonny_Jim> *shrug*
[14:44] <Sonny_Jim> I just stick it up on github
[14:44] <shiftplusone> [Saint], do you have the nick of the guy asking about teletext last night?
[14:44] <Mr_Sheesh> Aah, good point, could code on another machine and put it in a server
[14:44] <gordonDrogon> teletext? that's all but dead in the UK now...
[14:44] <Sonny_Jim> I mean, I use my laptop to ssh into the Pi and use vim there, then upload to github straight from the Pi
[14:45] <Mr_Sheesh> I'm too rusty on Linux ATM, sadly, RL happened and I got sidelined for a while.
[14:45] * gordonDrogon doesn't use github.
[14:45] <[Saint]> Most desktops laptops are going to blow this out of the water in almost all respects.
[14:45] <[Saint]> I would delegate to a more powerful device.
[14:45] <[Saint]> In fact, I do.
[14:45] <[Saint]> *desktops/laptops
[14:45] <Mr_Sheesh> I can putty in from any machine on the LAN here, just kinda hard to compile it on another machine afaik unless someone has a cross-compiler that runs on x86 to target the RPi?
[14:46] <Sonny_Jim> I normally just compile on the Pi, but then I don't exactly work with huge projects
[14:46] <Mr_Sheesh> (this's my first ARM programming event, done enough other architectures LOL)
[14:46] <Sonny_Jim> And even so, I just leave it to compile the brunt overnight
[14:46] * winlu (~winlu@unaffiliated/winlu) has joined #raspberrypi

[14:48] <[Saint]> You owe me a new thumb shiftplusone
[14:48] <zoidberg-> Sonny_Jim: let me show you logs
[14:48] <Sonny_Jim> That is weird
[14:49] <shiftplusone> thanks

[14:49] <zoidberg-> thats what happens
[14:49] <shiftplusone> toresbe, hi (bad news).
[14:49] <Sonny_Jim> This is rasbian, right?
[14:49] <[Saint]> zoidberg-: is it possible this is a /specific/ dodgy adapter?
[14:49] <toresbe> shiftplusone: aww :(
[14:49] <shiftplusone> toresbe, although the hardware is technically capable of doing it, there's no software support
[14:49] <zoidberg-> holy crap!!
[14:49] <zoidberg-> Sonny_Jim: yes raspbina, what about dhcp cache!
[14:50] <zoidberg-> i wonder if it keeps a cache, look at my lease times
[14:50] <zoidberg-> thats probably it... lemme google see how dnsmasq handles its dhcp cache

[14:51] <toresbe> shiftplusone: where's the software support lacking? I don't mind going to bare metal.
[14:51] <shiftplusone> toresbe, nuh, it would be firmware-side
[14:51] <Sonny_Jim> I would link to the specific post, but it's about halfway down by MrEngman
[14:51] <zoidberg-> Sonny_Jim: http://codepad.org/Zk9cRsW3 i wonder if thats it
[14:51] <[Saint]> toresbe: likely firmware.
[14:51] <Sonny_Jim> Yeah could just try nuking that file and trying again
[14:51] <[Saint]> Whoops, too late.
[14:51] <shiftplusone> and the docs for that particular part of the hardware are unlikely to be released
[14:51] <Sonny_Jim> Don't *think* it's causing the problem though
[14:52] <toresbe> shiftplusone: aha, OK... bummer. Well, it was very kind of you to look into it.
[14:52] <shiftplusone> Well, I was curious myself
[14:52] <shiftplusone> teletext would be kind of cool... don't know what for, but still cool.
[14:52] <gordonDrogon> what askect of teletext are you after?
[14:52] <gordonDrogon> *aspect?
[14:52] <zoidberg-> Sonny_Jim: do you think i need to create that udev file now?
[14:53] <[Saint]> Does "unlikely" even cut it?
[14:53] <Sonny_Jim> I would give it a try, at least you know that the dongles will be in the right order
[14:53] <zoidberg-> Sonny_Jim: ok let me try nuking the file then that, brb
[14:53] <[Saint]> I thought "you'll get those docs when Hell freezes over" to be closer to reality. ;)
[14:53] <shiftplusone> [Saint], no, there are docs in the pipeline for release.
[14:53] <Sonny_Jim> Another hunch could be that when you plug in the 3rd dongle, the USB bus goes wonky and resets, then the devices come back up in the wrong order
[14:53] <Sonny_Jim> Making that udev file should stop that from happening
[14:54] <shiftplusone> just not that bit
[14:55] <toresbe> gordonDrogon: I'm writing a teletext encoder for a community TV station I volunteer at
[14:55] <Sonny_Jim> zoidberg-: It's this post I'm referring to http://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?p=504917#p504917

[15:08] <Sonny_Jim> Yeah I would shutdown, remove power, then power up again
[15:08] <zoidberg-> ok
[15:08] <zoidberg-> two mins
[15:08] <Sonny_Jim> You should be able to leave the dongles plugged in

[17:13] <scales11> hi all. I am running retroarch+emulationstation on my Pi. But, I am frustrated with the performance. I think I need something with more CPU power...anyone else in this boat?
[17:13] * converge (~converge@unaffiliated/joaop) has left #raspberrypi
[17:14] <`Nef> In a way, yes.
[17:14] <IT_Sean> scales11, have you OC'd?
[17:14] <scales11> IT_Sean: i did the "modest" or first one
[17:14] <IT_Sean> Try pushing it higher. Slowly, of course.
[17:15] <IT_Sean> Most (not all, but most) Pis can be pushed to 1GHz. Just be sure to keep regular backups incase of SD card corruption
[17:15] <scales11> well specifically, it doesnt play NES or SNES games well. Very laggy, audio and video
[17:15] <ozzzy> scales11, well... nobody ever bought a Pi for it's super-fast CPU
[17:15] <`Nef> ^
[17:15] <shiftplusone> Hmm... thought NES would be fine.
[17:15] <shiftplusone> and SNES really
[17:15] <scales11> Yes, lets just say I am learning from experience :)
[17:16] <shiftplusone> tried different emulators?
[17:16] <`Nef> It took me ~6 hours to compile something I did in 2 minutes on my NUC (I don't care if I could've cross-compiled it), then I ran out of space when I downloaded the blockchain. lol

[17:16] <shiftplusone> without all this retroarch nonsense
[17:16] <scales11> shiftplusone: no. I have only used retroarch
[17:17] <clever> `Nef: the main bitcoin chain can eat 100% cpu on my 1.6ghz laptop at times, just trying to stay in sync, dont even think about catching up, lol
[17:17] <scales11> shiftplusone: I am actually using UltraSLIM. I tried starting from scratch on Archarm, but i cant get retroarch to compile
[17:17] <[Saint]> We can run NES games in realtime on an iPod.
[17:17] <[Saint]> Something must be messed up if a pi cant ...
[17:18] <`Nef> clever, only if you let it the blockchain run too far ahead ;)
[17:18] <`Nef> compiling was the pain
[17:18] <clever> [Saint]: i need to look into fixing oprofile again
[17:18] <clever> the arm has so many performance counters that it could use
[17:18] <[Saint]> And GB/GBA
[17:18] <scales11> shiftplusone: I want to have a standalone box that emulates NES,SNES,GBC,GENESIS,MAME.

[17:19] <scales11> Compiling takes so long (and I am a newb to it) so if things are not going to work well, I would rather jump to another board
[17:19] * shiftplusone shrugs
[17:19] <shiftplusone> I wasn't too impressed with the way retroarch is set up under the hood, so I don't have much faith in the whole thing
[17:19] <`Nef> just use a small pc
[17:19] <scales11> shiftplusone: is there another option?
[17:20] <clever> i often run an SNES emulator on my android tablet
[17:20] <shiftplusone> I'd do it myself
[17:20] <scales11> `Nef: well in hindsight yes, but I dont have the space
[17:20] <clever> and with sixaxis and root, i can pipe a PS3 controller into the tablet
[17:20] <[Saint]> Its important to note that some emulators strive for perfect reproduction, and not realtime.
[17:20] <[Saint]> Its either one or the other.
[17:20] <[Saint]> Never both.
[17:21] <scales11> [Saint]: humm. well I would prefer the reproduction...that means same original speed right?
[17:21] <[Saint]> Well...very, very, VERY rarely both.
[17:21] <clever> [Saint]: i just remembered, ive seen a JAVASCRIPT gameboy emulator!
[17:21] <clever> and it ran in real-time
[17:22] <[Saint]> No, that would mean emulating all game behavior, bugs and all, potentially at the cost is realtime.
[17:22] <clever> canvas, scanline emulation, audio emulation

[17:26] <clever> with c or assembly, you shouldnt have too much trouble emulating something of a lower clock cycle
[17:26] <clever> just make sure each instructions implementation takes less then the division of the 2 clocks
[17:26] <[Saint]> Its all C and ARM assembly.
[17:27] <clever> the only place i can see nasty overhead is in something like xorg
[17:27] <clever> for example, i recently tried VNC on my pi, with a 3d game running on the far end

[17:28] <[Saint]> Have you tried one of he X-on-steroids type variants I forget the name of?
[17:28] <clever> not yet
[17:28] <MY123> clever: Better try something using DirectFB

[20:13] <[Saint]> What's wrong with WiFi?

[20:14] * gurdulilfo (~gurdulilf@c68A047C1.dhcp.as2116.net) Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[20:14] <kubast2> actually nothing
[20:15] <kubast2> I think I've said that as I'm not sure which RPi I'll get
[20:15] <kubast2> So I'm not sure if I'll don't have all of the ports used
[20:15] <[Saint]> There's pretty much no reason at all to get an A unless you require a low profile option.
[20:16] <[Saint]> And absolutely no reason to get a B over a B+
[20:16] <[Saint]> So, you'll have 4 USB ports to play with.
[20:16] <kubast2> I know ,but my parents are paying debs ,and that's why I'm not sure
[20:17] <[Saint]> A WiFi dongle is also going to cost less, and be a LOT more versatile.
[20:17] <[Saint]> I imagine being tethered to the pi with a cable is going to get bloody annoying.
[20:17] <[Saint]> WiFi defeats that issue.

[20:18] <Sonny_Jim> Considering it's $4.50 and you can pretty much buy a USB WiFi dongle for that much
