[0:32] <l_r> do anyone own a odriod u3 which is said to be compatible with rpi?
[0:32] * plugwash doesn't own a U3 but does own it's predecessor the U2
[0:32] <phire> Interesting
[0:33] <phire> not only does the B+ have low voltage warnings.
[0:33] <phire> But it copes much better in low voltage conditions
[0:33] * twikz (~twikz@p4FE11126.dip0.t-ipconnect.de) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:33] <phire> Didn't crash until the voltage dropped below 3.2v
[0:34] <Ryitt> Limelight should work?
[0:34] <plugwash> l_r, I'd expect it to be no more of less "compatible with rpi" than any other armv7 board
[0:35] <l_r> plugwash, does it use the same firmware for the gpu?
[0:35] <l_r> isnt the gpu from broadcom?

[0:37] * pdmct (uid44201@gateway/web/irccloud.com/x-hxjpapzacomtpjfa) Quit (Quit: Connection closed for inactivity)
[0:37] <plugwash> No, it's a samsung SoC with a mali GPU
[0:38] * monkers (~Monkers@unaffiliated/monkeypaws) has left #raspberrypi
[0:39] <l_r> plugwash, but somewhere i read it i ssoftware-compatible, things like raspistill and raspivid would work...
[0:39] <plugwash> The only broadcom device the odriod guys did is the odriod-w, unfortunately broadcom refused to continue supplying them with further chips. It's not entirely clear why
[0:39] <l_r> ok
[0:39] <plugwash> so the odroid-w is on "available while stocks last, not reccomended for new designs"
[0:41] * MushroomKing (~Brian@71-81-145-132.dhcp.stls.mo.charter.com) Quit (Ping timeout: 246 seconds)
[0:42] * plugwash suspects someone got their odriod models confused
[0:44] * g2nightmare (~matt@c-98-244-113-247.hsd1.va.comcast.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:45] <abnormal> plugwash, the design rights made them stop supplying the broadcom chips to Odroid...
[0:46] <plugwash> abnormal, has anyone officially announced that or is it just someone's theory?
[0:48] <abnormal> read it somewhere on the web. they were making the boards so similar to pi that pi ppl got on their case....
[0:49] * Delboy (~openwrt@141-136-235-173.dsl.iskon.hr) Quit (Ping timeout: 260 seconds)
[0:49] <plugwash> people write lots of stuff on the web, doesn't mean it's true
[0:50] <abnormal> ok lemme look for it for you... just a min...
[0:50] <plugwash> It's quite common for people to take a theory as to why something happened and state it as if it's a fact
[0:52] <phire> yes, like the entire internet is postive that the GPU in Apple's A7/A8 SOCs is a PowerVR
[0:52] * g2nightmare (~matt@c-98-244-113-247.hsd1.va.comcast.net) has left #raspberrypi
[0:54] <niston> PowerVR heh
[0:54] * Delboy (~openwrt@141-136-235-205.dsl.iskon.hr) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:54] <niston> my first MMX pentium box had one of these in it
[0:54] * winlu (~winlu@unaffiliated/winlu) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:54] <niston> NEC PowerVR 2
[0:54] <abnormal> plugwash, ok, key in this line in Google, "Odroid stopped due to rpi rights" and pick and choose the stories you like to read... the opinion is yours, so enjoy...
[0:55] <phire> just because apple's previous SOCs used powervr processors
[0:55] * niston waves at abnormal
[0:55] <phire> then apple went quiet
[0:55] <abnormal> hi, niston
[0:55] * Moshin (~bangboom@ has joined #raspberrypi
[0:55] <phire> and the only source which everything links back to is chipwork's decaping

[0:56] * pebble` (~pebble@unaffiliated/espiral) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[0:56] <phire> where they say: We can see the gpu as X cores, it's probally the PowerVR XYZ which also has X cores

[0:56] * pebble` (~pebble@unaffiliated/espiral) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:59] * PovAddict (~nicolas@kde/developer/nalvarez) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:59] <PovAddict> if I connect a LED to a GPIO port, can I control its brightness?
[0:59] <PovAddict> via PWM maybe?
[1:01] * Macuser (~textual@unaffiliated/macuser) has joined #raspberrypi

[1:05] * Textmode (~boneidle@adsl-1-au-2-174.ozonline.com.au) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:07] <[Saint]> PovAddict: yes
[1:08] <PovAddict> well how? :)
[1:08] <niston> [Saint] will this also work if the led is driven through a transistor?
[1:08] * [Saint] delegates the task of explanation to The Googlez:
[1:08] <[Saint]> http://raspi.tv/2013/how-to-use-soft-pwm-in-rpi-gpio-pt-2-led-dimming-and-motor-speed-control
[1:09] <[Saint]> (its smarter than I am)
[1:09] <PovAddict> ah software PWM
[1:09] * [Saint] nods
[1:10] <PovAddict> and there's no analog outputs in the pi?
[1:11] * RaptorJesus (~RaptorJes@gateway/tor-sasl/raptorjesus) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:11] <phire> all hail our google overlords
[1:12] <PovAddict> ooh maybe I can make a simple DAC and use multiple GPIO pins per LED :)
[1:12] <PovAddict> with appropriate diodes of course
[1:12] <phire> LEDs don't actually respond well to changes in voltages
[1:13] <phire> PWM is the best method for controlling their brightness
[1:13] <PovAddict> hm I see
[1:13] <[Saint]> Right. Tis but a trickery.
[1:14] <[Saint]> But, out eyes don't care.
[1:14] <[Saint]> *our
[1:14] <phire> as long as it's fast enough
[1:14] * hadifarnoud (~hadifarno@ Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)

[1:15] * hadifarnoud (~hadifarno@ has joined #raspberrypi
[1:15] <[Saint]> doesn't need to be too fast. 18Hz or so.
[1:16] <[Saint]> Our eyes are fairly stupid.
[1:17] * Tachyon` is now known as Tach[out]
[1:17] * iamjarvo (~textual@c-69-249-187-177.hsd1.nj.comcast.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:18] <SpeedEvil> PWM of up to ~1000Hz can be visible in some cases.
[1:19] <SpeedEvil> For lighting LEDs, please exceed 500Hz PWM
[1:19] <[Saint]> that would probably be some weird coincidence of overlapping cycles I would think.
[1:20] <[Saint]> A human eye definitely can't distinguish individual flashes at that rate.
[1:20] <[Saint]> temporary syncups between the refresh rate of the source and the eye.
[1:20] <[Saint]> He says, highly speculatively.
[1:20] <plugwash> I don't think the eye has a "refresh rate" as such
[1:20] * iamjarvo (~textual@c-69-249-187-177.hsd1.nj.comcast.net) Quit (Client Quit)
[1:21] <phire> human eyesight is acutally quite clever
[1:21] <plugwash> the bigger problem is movement, if you or the thing you are looking at is moving quickly then you can get stroboscopic affects even at very high flash frequencies
[1:21] <phire> what you are perceiving is actually a blend over 10's of seconds
[1:21] <SpeedEvil> [Saint]: When your eye slews past an illuminated image, you get a stroboscopic image
[1:21] <[Saint]> Too clever, really, which is why frame rates as low as 24Hz can appear absolutely fluid to the human eye.
[1:22] <SpeedEvil> This screws up some people more than others.
[1:22] <SpeedEvil> [Saint]: It doesn't
[1:22] <SpeedEvil> [Saint]: note that most people can tell the differnece between 24 and 48
[1:22] <SpeedEvil> and the epic bitching
[1:22] <[Saint]> See: every movie ever.
[1:22] <[Saint]> 24Hz is absolutely fine for Joe Average.
[1:23] * hadifarnoud (~hadifarno@ Quit (Ping timeout: 240 seconds)
[1:23] <CoJaBo> movies show the frames twice
[1:23] <plugwash> apparently one of the reasons movies don't go to higher framerates is that people CAN tell the difference and associate higher framerates subconciously with cheap TV shows
[1:24] <CoJaBo> which is hilarious :P
[1:25] <[Saint]> I'm not trying to say that people can't differentiate between higher frame rates, not at all, just the as little as 24Hz is absolutely fine for the brain to fill in the gaps and perceive fluid movement.
[1:25] <[Saint]> WHich is largely inarguable.
[1:25] <CoJaBo> anything below ~100hz flickers quite annoyingly :/
[1:26] <[Saint]> your monitor and television might care to disagree.
[1:26] <plugwash> In most situations yes, movies work very hard to avoid the situation where it isn't (fast camera movement for example) and it does also vary between individuals
[1:26] <CoJaBo> [Saint]: I can't use CRTs below 100hz
[1:26] <[Saint]> Jesus.
[1:26] <[Saint]> Who uses CRTs?
[1:26] <CoJaBo> Thankfully, nobody :P
[1:26] <SpeedEvil> LCDs don't ficker in the same way
[1:26] <PovAddict> :)
[1:26] <SpeedEvil> so you can't compare them
[1:27] <CoJaBo> LCDs are fine; I'd literally go insane if they did not exist
[1:27] <CoJaBo> I can't even be in the same room as a CRT television, they're too fricking loud >_>
[1:28] <[Saint]> I have to admit that I did keep a giant 28" CRT monitor on my desk for *ages* as a secondary monitor for the sake of my aging (19yo) cat. :)
[1:28] <SpeedEvil> People vary - some are inherently more sensitive to flickering
[1:28] <PovAddict> [Saint]: to give him a warm spot to sleep?
[1:28] <[Saint]> PovAddict: indeed.
[1:28] <CoJaBo> SpeedEvil: /me is one of them :/
[1:28] <PovAddict> :3
[1:28] <cluelez____> :3
[1:29] <CoJaBo> SpeedEvil: What's even more annoying is the sound they make, which far fewer people can hear
[1:29] * MushroomKing (~Brian@75-132-91-203.dhcp.stls.mo.charter.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:29] <PovAddict> CoJaBo: how old are you?
[1:29] <[Saint]> WHen I eventually moved to LCD I built a surround for the monitors with a heating pad embedded in the top.
[1:29] <PovAddict> sensitivity to high-pitched sounds is inversely proportional to age
[1:29] <[Saint]> kitty-approved and certified.
[1:30] <CoJaBo> rofl
[1:30] * ShorTie snickers
[1:30] <[Saint]> PovAddict: damn right it is...get past ~35 as a male and your top end resolution bottoms out disgustingly.
[1:30] <CoJaBo> PovAddict: In my life, I've met one other person who can hear The Sound
[1:30] <PovAddict> I can hear CRTs
[1:30] <PovAddict> but it's not that loud
[1:30] <[Saint]> PovAddict: FWIW, I used to be very annoyed by CRTs and VCRs as well.
[1:31] <CoJaBo> Most people can hear the "chirp" as it turns on and off, but it's continuous, and noone seems to be bothered by it
[1:31] <[Saint]> I used to think I was insane.
[1:31] <PovAddict> also, switching power supplies
[1:31] <[Saint]> PovAddict: right - them too, indeed.
[1:31] <PovAddict> phone chargers make a high-pitched sound too
[1:31] <CoJaBo> People think you're insane when you can hear unhearable sounds <_<
[1:31] <[Saint]> At my age, I can't hear it anymore, though.
[1:31] * Datalink_ (Datalink@unaffiliated/datalink) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:32] <CoJaBo> I've also discovered that people who edit and screen movies and TV shows can't hear The Sound either
[1:32] * PovAddict goes back to writing Python
[1:33] <CoJaBo> You can tell which actors had a CRT or similar device in the background when they recorded their audio track

[9:02] <irc_smirk> what email address do i then have
[9:02] <skyroveRR> Yes.
[9:02] <skyroveRR> You want a couple of prerequisites.
[9:02] <skyroveRR> You need a domain.
[9:02] <skyroveRR> You need a static IP.
[9:02] <skyroveRR> You need to have a suitable DNS server.
[9:03] * Xano (~bart@ip-213-127-200-52.ip.prioritytelecom.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[9:03] <skyroveRR> You need a suitable hardware [in my case, my pi.]
[9:03] <irc_smirk> so your pi is not at home for example
[9:03] <skyroveRR> And you need suitable software.
[9:03] <skyroveRR> Then you can access it remotely.
[9:04] <skyroveRR> Why do you want an email server, btw?

[9:05] <irc_smirk> for privacy
[9:06] <skyroveRR> You don't really want an email server unless you know what you really want.
[9:06] <irc_smirk> i want my own webmail software and i want to be able to run scripts against incomign email and i dont want yahoo/google/hotmail reading all my mail
[9:06] <skyroveRR> "for privacy" <- please explain.
[9:07] <irc_smirk> even though of course using their browsers they read everythign

[9:07] <skyroveRR> Mm ok..
[9:07] <skyroveRR> Now, do you have the prerequisites I just mentioned?
[9:07] <irc_smirk> also i want to have my own 10minute mail thing
[9:07] <irc_smirk> i use duckdns
[9:07] <irc_smirk> i use that for 'static' ip
[9:08] <irc_smirk> i can get a domain and point it to duckdns i suppose
[9:08] <irc_smirk> so at that point its about software
[9:08] <skyroveRR> No, when I said "static IP", I didn't mean the IP of duckdns, I meant the static IP of your computer.
[9:09] <irc_smirk> well i havent made that part static yet
[9:09] <irc_smirk> i have port forwarding
[9:09] <irc_smirk> its easy to make it static from what i read. i just havent. lazy
[9:09] <skyroveRR> Do you know what a static IP is?
[9:09] <irc_smirk> yeah my internal one right?
[9:09] <irc_smirk> 192.168.x.x
[9:09] <skyroveRR> Umm... no.
[9:09] <irc_smirk> the external one?
[9:09] <skyroveRR> I asked the definition, not examples.
[9:10] * skylite (~skylite@business-178-48-4-145.business.broadband.hu) has joined #raspberrypi
[9:10] <skyroveRR> It's an IP that doesn't change. Be it internal or external.
[9:10] <irc_smirk> yes
[9:10] * Vutral (~ss@mirbsd/special/Vutral) Quit (Ping timeout: 260 seconds)
[9:10] <irc_smirk> but as you know with home isp setups the stuff changes
[9:10] <skyroveRR> Indeed.
[9:10] <irc_smirk> hence duckdns
[9:11] <skyroveRR> I'd better google that shit since I don't use it.
[9:11] <irc_smirk> basically you put an bash sript that pings their servers
[9:11] <irc_smirk> every 5 minutes
[9:11] <irc_smirk> then they do dns for you based on that ip
[9:11] <skyroveRR> Mm...
[9:12] <irc_smirk> and its on amazon ec2 and works great. a bit slow on the dns part i have noticed
[9:12] * Maqs (~maqs@internetmafia.org) has joined #raspberrypi
[9:12] <skyroveRR> Well, that's fine, but... it's "free" and it's that which makes me suspicious.
[9:12] * spybert (~spybert@c-50-173-18-125.hsd1.ca.comcast.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[9:13] <irc_smirk> well what is worse they can do?
[9:13] <skyroveRR> Do you know how DNS works?
[9:14] <skyroveRR> And the hierarchies of DNS?
[9:14] <skyroveRR> DuckDNS is basically a dynamic DNS provider.
[9:14] * gbaman (~gbaman@ has joined #raspberrypi
[9:14] <irc_smirk> right. and no i dont konw
[9:14] <irc_smirk> be gentle
[9:14] <skyroveRR> I am :)
[9:15] <irc_smirk> ok so what is the suspicion about
[9:15] <irc_smirk> of course this is not robust solution blah blah
[9:15] * Vutral (~ss@mirbsd/special/Vutral) has joined #raspberrypi
[9:15] <irc_smirk> i mean i dont have money to get a static ip. if i knew how id do that
[9:15] <irc_smirk> but i still want to run the pi of course
[9:16] <irc_smirk> as for duckdns whats the suspicion other than them turning off the lights and the dns doesnt resolve
[9:16] <skyroveRR> Well, my setup is quite different. And you could term it "private". But relying on other providers for such services is baseless as far as privacy is concerned.
[9:16] <irc_smirk> how is it not private
[9:16] <irc_smirk> they know my external ip and that i run pi
[9:17] <skyroveRR> That's why.
[9:17] <irc_smirk> what else does the bash script reveal
[9:17] <skyroveRR> An IP can tell a lot.
[9:17] <irc_smirk> ok . explain
[9:17] <irc_smirk> you can port scan it
[9:17] <irc_smirk> dos the pi
[9:17] <irc_smirk> i mean ok
[9:17] <irc_smirk> but thats what happens when you connect to the internet
[9:19] <skyroveRR> Ok, that's far away thinking. My view is, if you want privacy, you try to keep as many things as you can in YOUR control, not in the control of someone else. When you are using some DDNS provider, they basically decide what to do and what not to do with your IP. They can do whatever the hell they want to do with it. But when you are using your own servers, you can do basically what the hell you want to
[9:19] <skyroveRR> do.
[9:20] * gbaman (~gbaman@ Quit (Ping timeout: 250 seconds)
[9:20] <irc_smirk> so you run your own dns as well?
[9:20] <skyroveRR> Yup.
[9:20] <irc_smirk> and you have static ips because you are jedi level
[9:21] * D30 (~deo@ has joined #raspberrypi
[9:21] <skyroveRR> Erm... I'm not a jedi in any way. When I started out with my email server, I asked the same questions to others as you are asking me now.
[9:22] <irc_smirk> so yes i guess i could run dns like they do on amazon
[9:22] <irc_smirk> so how much do yu pay to get a static ip
[9:22] <irc_smirk> or where, how,
[9:23] <irc_smirk> shit now you are making me feel paranoid about yellow rubber ducks
[9:23] * Vutral (~ss@mirbsd/special/Vutral) Quit (Excess Flood)
[9:24] <skyroveRR> When it comes to DDNS, you need to know about DNS, particularly DNS propagation. When you are assigned a new IP by your ISP, the script pushes the changes to your DuckDNS server, which is fine, but then, it takes a lot of time for the changes to take effect. Let me make it a bit simple: suppose I have a domain abc.com with an IP, and then 2 days later, I have a new IP, the script will
[9:24] <skyroveRR> make the changes, but anyone trying to open abc.com on their browser won't be able to open it, because your OLD DNS record is still, not So it's the propagation that beats you.

[9:26] <irc_smirk> alright dude. level me up
[9:26] <skyroveRR> I am not levelling with you. :|
[9:26] <irc_smirk> so tell me what security issues pi has out of the box
[9:27] <irc_smirk> with my ip exposed
[9:27] <skyroveRR> You would have to ask that to the company that makes those pis.
[9:27] <skyroveRR> Not me, I'm not the manufacturer.

[9:28] <skyroveRR> If you know so much about DNS, what's stopping you from running your email server?
[9:28] <irc_smirk> im not saying i do. im learning
[9:28] <irc_smirk> im asking for recommendations
[9:28] <Darkwell> computerscience stuff could be old and modern in the same time... algoriths are still algorithms for instance
[9:29] <skyroveRR> I come here to give suggestions, not recommendations, irc_smirk .
[9:29] <irc_smirk> agreed. and current levesl build on older levels
[9:29] <skyroveRR> Darkwell: true. Programming languages, for example. But not necessarily hardware.
[9:29] <irc_smirk> like newcomers think jquery = javascript
[9:30] <irc_smirk> ok who do i need to XYZ to get an apt-get 'suggessiton' for an email server??
[9:32] <skyroveRR> Google.
[9:32] <Darkwell> hardware could be changing ... but also lasting... depwnding on who built it... in computerscience you can interchange software and hardware back and forth... its up to the designer how flexible they want things to be

[9:35] <kiely> I need it to send shutdown signal, there's code made, the wiring is available
[9:35] <kiely> Hoping theres someone who knows electronics here :D
[9:35] <Darkwell> shutdown -h now

[9:45] <irc_smirk> so how do i harden my ssh port
[9:45] <irc_smirk> specifcially how do i prevent root from loggin in
[9:45] <irc_smirk> and how do i rename my pi user to something else (yet keep all its settings)
[9:45] <Darkwell> are you srrious ?
[9:47] <irc_smirk> wchi part
[9:48] <Darkwell> the ssh qestions

[9:48] <irc_smirk> http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/linux/security-tip-disable-root-ssh-login-on-linux/
[9:48] <irc_smirk> changing pi user is hard?
[9:48] <Darkwell> edit /ets/ssh/sshd_config
[9:49] <Darkwell> nope
[9:49] <Darkwell> its not hard
[9:49] <irc_smirk> all the stuff ive installed with that user will transfer over?
[9:49] <irc_smirk> sorry very new to unix
[9:49] <Darkwell> yes
[9:50] <Darkwell> the sshd_config you can disallow root login
[9:50] <Darkwell> changing name of usrt pi is just editing 2 files
[9:50] <irc_smirk> http://www.maketecheasier.com/change-default-raspberry-pi-configuration/
[9:51] <irc_smirk> ok. so i shut down all my scripts due to my new paranoia
[9:51] <irc_smirk> so now only ssh is open
[9:51] * medoix-afk is now known as medoix
[9:51] <irc_smirk> so basically the only way in is with brute forcing that password right?
[9:51] <Darkwell> uh?
[9:52] <irc_smirk> basically i ran nmap on myself
[9:52] <irc_smirk> saw my open ports. and shut them
[9:52] <irc_smirk> except ssh
[9:52] <irc_smirk> so im asking how else can someone 'attack me'
[9:52] <Darkwell> if you want to drop brute force attacks
[9:52] <Darkwell> there exists software that blocks repeated attempts

[9:57] <Darkwell> if you are paranoid you can use logkeys .. ni if it exists on raspbian
[9:57] <irc_smirk> bash history

[10:00] <Darkwell> np
[10:00] <irc_smirk> wow this nsof is great

[10:04] <irc_smirk> this stuff is so fascinating to me
[10:04] <Darkwell> if you want to change username if pu a trick can be done
[10:04] <[Saint]> Not really a trick...
[10:05] <[Saint]> Standard Unix user management.
[10:05] <Darkwell> add anothe user with same uid and home
[10:05] <Darkwell> yes standard trick

[10:07] <zlimvos> irc_smirk: I loved the command 'screen' when i learned it. it keeps sessions in backgrounds, you can switch between many terminals with one ssh session, history login, screen sharing and more
[10:07] <[Saint]> That's an absolutely insane way of handling a very simple task.
[10:08] <irc_smirk> screen command not found
[10:08] <Darkwell> since uid is not changes just the maooing of a label
[10:08] <irc_smirk> is it sudo?
[10:08] <Darkwell> insane ?
[10:08] <[Saint]> Demonstrably.
[10:08] <Darkwell> apt-get install screen
[10:09] <irc_smirk> this reminds me of a mud game
[10:09] <Darkwell> nah its simple and it has always worked
[10:09] <zlimvos> probably needs to be installed with sudo apt-get install screen, and then yes sudo screen. but it needs some training to use. ill open a private chat not to flood the channel
[10:09] <[Saint]> zlimvos: fg and BG is the other one people forget about

[12:19] <zap0> hi, i'm an arduino abuser; thinking of jumping ship to rPI..
[12:19] <zap0> i have a proj idea.. that involves MANY output channels of audio.
[12:20] <Sonny_Jim> I'm currently playing around with SDL_mixer to do multi channel audio
[12:20] <Sonny_Jim> Seems to work OK but I've not really pushed it too far yet
[12:20] <zap0> i've looked at 1-bit audio electronics, and that looks cheap/easy/practical for making lots of audio channels.
[12:20] <Sonny_Jim> Oh, you mean multiple audio outputs?
[12:20] <zap0> yes
[12:21] <zap0> how many can i likely drive from the GPIOs ?
[12:21] <zap0> withOUT external DACs
[12:21] <Sonny_Jim> What's your desired sample rate/bit depth?
[12:21] * hadifarnoud (~hadifarno@ Quit (Ping timeout: 260 seconds)
[12:21] <Sonny_Jim> And you'll need some form of DAC if you want to hear something
[12:21] * Visage (~visage@pdpc/supporter/active/visage) Quit (Ping timeout: 260 seconds)
[12:23] <zap0> audio.. so like average to good MP3 quality.
[12:24] <zap0> with 1-bit audio, i'm not sure what rate i need.. i think the answer is `as much as it takes to get avg/good MP3 quality`.
[12:24] <Sonny_Jim> You need to understand the difference between what an MP3 is and PCM audio
[12:24] <Sonny_Jim> Do you know what 1-bit audio sounds like?
[12:24] <shiftplusone> O_o
[12:24] <zap0> i suspect it sounds like shit at low bit rates.... and at higher bit rates it approaches acceptable.
[12:24] <Sonny_Jim> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SGEp46A-8FQ
[12:25] <Sonny_Jim> Ignore the music, listen to the voice part as that's 1-bit
[12:25] <zap0> thats just 1 example of a specific bit rate.
[12:26] <Sonny_Jim> *sigh*
[12:26] <evil_dan2wik> zap0, 1bit is very very very bad.
[12:26] <Sonny_Jim> bit rate isn't the same as sample rate
[12:27] <Sonny_Jim> Let me find you a tutorial that explains it
[12:27] <Sonny_Jim> 1-bit DEPTH is what you mean
[12:27] <Sonny_Jim> https://www.applied-acoustics.com/techtalk/sampleratebitdepth/
[12:27] <Sonny_Jim> Read that
[12:28] * randt0sh (~tosh@t0x0sh.org) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[12:28] <zap0> http://www.romanblack.com/BTc_alg.htm this is good
[12:28] <Sonny_Jim> bit rate is simply how fast the data is encoded in the MP3. The MP3 decoder will convert that to a given bit depth and sample rate
[12:28] * randt0sh (~tosh@t0x0sh.org) has joined #raspberrypi
[12:29] <evil_dan2wik> bit rates are usually around 64/128bit aren't they?
[12:29] <niston> in audio?
[12:29] <evil_dan2wik> yes.
[12:29] <niston> 16bit is pretty common
[12:29] <Sonny_Jim> Depends, you can have variable or constant bit reates
[12:29] <niston> aka CD audi
[12:29] <niston> *o
[12:29] <evil_dan2wik> ok.

[12:31] <zap0> i didn't come here to talk about MP3 terminology. i don't care about mp3. you asked about quality.. which is subjective, so i gave you an example. thats it. it wasn't a technical descirption of anything.
[12:31] <Sonny_Jim> zap0: I'm trying to educate you so you can achieve your goal, that's all
[12:31] <zap0> and i'm trying to keep you on the topic i want.
[12:31] <Sonny_Jim> Bah
[12:32] <Sonny_Jim> This *is* on topic
[12:32] <evil_dan2wik> I found this: http://www.instructables.com/id/Raspberry-Pi-Multi-Room-Audio-MobileTabletPC-Contr/
[12:32] <evil_dan2wik> that might help.

[12:35] <zap0> play lots of channels of audio.. more than is available by a audio output, hence it will need to come out the GPIO. and external DACs isn't what i really want to do.
[12:35] <Sonny_Jim> Doesn't have to
[12:35] <Sonny_Jim> You can buy multi output USB soundcards
[12:35] <Sonny_Jim> Or just plug in more than one USB soundcard
[12:36] <zap0> how many outputs do they have ?
[12:36] <Sonny_Jim> Depends on what you buy
[12:36] <zap0> how do you keep them all in sync
[12:36] <Sonny_Jim> Unless you need to have sub millisecond timing, I wouldn't worry
[12:37] <zap0> how can i be sure that whatever ones i buy can play nicely together
[12:37] <Sonny_Jim> Most USB soundcards will work fine with each other
[12:38] <Sonny_Jim> You'll probably need to use an external powered USB hub though
[12:38] <Sonny_Jim> And I'm not too sure how many sound cards you could fit to the Pi before the USB bus gets congested
[12:38] <evil_dan2wik> zap0, I think I get what you were trying to do regarding the GPIO, but the Pi takes too much time to switch the GPIO pin to be useable.
[12:38] <Sonny_Jim> Most pro-audio multi output cards use Firewire for this reason
[12:39] * ThKo (~ThKo@ip-95-222-146-171.hsi15.unitymediagroup.de) has joined #raspberrypi
[12:39] <evil_dan2wik> you would probably be better off getting a DAC with multiple outputs.
[12:40] <Sonny_Jim> Do you want the outputs to play the same thing at the same time?
[12:40] <niston> zap0: how many channels are you going to need?
[12:40] <zap0> evil_dan2wik, i read somewhere in C you can get into the MHz rate
[12:41] <evil_dan2wik> yeah, but the audio would still be unstable because the linux OS steals lumps of time from the programs.
[12:41] <zap0> niston, good question. i WANT like 20.. but i will settle for `as many as is acceptably sounding`.
[12:41] <Sonny_Jim> Do these 20 channels play the same sound at the same time/
[12:42] <evil_dan2wik> Sonny_Jim, assume no?
[12:42] <niston> you could do with some multichannel USB cards, perhaps. a 7.1 card has 8 mono channels, for example.
[12:42] <zap0> Sonny_Jim, no.. that would not be a definition of many channels.
[12:42] <Sonny_Jim> evil_dan2wik: Never assume
[12:42] <evil_dan2wik> well, we have a definite answer now anyway.
[12:42] * Sonny_Jim nods
[12:43] <Sonny_Jim> My suggestion would be to get a multi channel USB sound card, or multiple cheap stereo USB sound cards
[12:43] <niston> yes I agree with Sonny_Jim there
[12:43] <zap0> http://www.dx.com/p/5-1-channel-usb-sound-card-adapter-blue-59037 not sure what "virtual" means here.. i can only see 2 jack outputs
[12:43] <Sonny_Jim> Or multiple Pis and a combination of the above
[12:43] <evil_dan2wik> zap0, virtual is not what you want.
[12:43] <niston> something like this maybe http://www.topd.ch/de/shop/IT-HARDWARE/PC-Komponenten/Komponenten/PC-Speaker/7.1-USB-Sound-Box-USB-2.0-konform-schwarz-000269908?gclid=CjwKEAjw8O2hBRDKur2lseLW6C8SJAC-r1J3WUr6mD7tcf30SP2JP_6ylJZRJICOZVov18HgT4irihoCrXzw_wcB&campaign=GoogleShoppingAdwords

[15:17] <shiftplusone> you mean python over c?
[15:17] * Sonny_Jim nods
[15:17] <shiftplusone> if you're JUST learning, yeah maybe. But in the long run, C or C++ is the way to go.
[15:17] <shiftplusone> C for lower level and C++ when the application calls for it.
[15:17] <Sonny_Jim> Well, zap0 wanted to play multichannels sounds
[15:17] <Sonny_Jim> Actually, yeah use C
[15:17] <zap0> Sonny_Jim, i am C wizard. i hate python.. cause it's trendy thing to hate ;) meaning whitespace... pfft! thats silly!!

[15:18] <Sonny_Jim> oh, apologies
[15:19] <shiftplusone> There are many C wizards who only work on drivers and firmware, so I wouldn't be surprised if many of them have no idea about SDL.

[15:19] <Sonny_Jim> It's really easy
[15:19] <Sonny_Jim> I like it :-)
[15:19] <zap0> i've done FMOD multi-channel audio... and raw windows audio.

[15:22] <niston> willmore: 8/16/24/32bit audio
[15:22] <willmore> You mean sample bit size?
[15:22] <niston> yeah

[15:25] <zap0> such as cameras and *cough* multi-channel audio *cough*
[15:25] <shiftplusone> I'd use python there, actually.
[15:26] <shiftplusone> picamera is a decent library, by the sounds of it

[15:30] <GIANT_CRAB> basically, i control the quadrocopter using my handphone
[15:30] <GIANT_CRAB> it does message delivery

[15:39] <zap0> send it again.
[15:39] <niston> will be a problem with pure UDP
[15:39] <canton7> that's my point. either use tcp, which guarentees delivery for you already, or carefully design your protocol to handle things like resends yourself
[15:40] <niston> since you wont know when it didn't arrive
[15:40] * samrat (~samrat@ has joined #raspberrypi
[15:41] <canton7> udp's good when you're spamming out state constantly, and it doesn't matter if the remote end misses some of that state. udp's not good for state *changes*
[15:41] <zap0> a quad copter probably has like what?.. a dozen possible modes/states it's in.. Y U NO send that state every packet.
[15:42] <canton7> that's fine and a perfectly good way to do it - provided that you spam out that state constantly, rather than just when it changes
[15:42] <canton7> that falls under "design the protocol very very carefully"
[15:43] <zap0> safety wise you probably want to send state anyway.. so any misc changes that occur outside your control are quickly corrected.

[15:50] <niston> its to do with the station memory
[15:50] <niston> it accepts 99 presets, but you are free to assign the preset number
[15:50] <niston> so you may have presets 1,2,3,5,17,92

[15:50] <niston> ah
[15:51] <niston> and if a station is unavailable due to error it will skip to the next available one
[15:51] <zap0> ok... so how is that different from dumb skipping?
[15:51] <niston> dumb skipping would blink the error led and fall silent
[15:53] <zap0> so it's the difference between the "Next" button meaning next stn and it meaning next station that is avaliable
[15:53] <niston> yeah I guess
[15:53] <zap0> yeah, i guess that does consistute intelligence ;

[15:56] <niston> probably more accurate

[17:58] <PovAddict> my ancient 8mm-tape video camera has something similar
[17:58] <niston> PovAddict: remote control?
[17:58] <PovAddict> trs connector, gives composite video and analog audio through that

[18:00] <shiftplusone> I'm just reflecting on what I got done today and how I am not really going to do anything in the next half hour before I go home.
[18:00] <nerdboy> monday should be free espresso day...
[18:01] <shiftplusone> free cake fridays are the best, I think.

[19:25] <shiftplusone> leftyfb, not that I know of.
[19:25] <Vibe> ohh
[19:25] <Vibe> problem is that sd-card has custom image with custom software

[19:26] <leftyfb> Vibe: restore from backup

[19:28] <shiftplusone> If you're lucky, inittab is the only missing file and you can use a standard one to replace it. But it would be best to figure out why it's missing in the first place.
[19:28] <nezZario> i.e. connecting to a remote (intranet) X server?
[19:28] <shiftplusone> nezZario, yes sir, lots of people.
[19:29] <leftyfb> nezZario: I'm trying that at the moment actually and getting really bad results
[19:29] <shiftplusone> look up berryterminal, for example

[19:30] <nezZario> i'm going to have to try this out when I get home ;)
[19:30] <leftyfb> nezZario: it's not going to be network since it's wired 10/100 on a very small network
[19:31] <leftyfb> it could be GPU
[19:31] <shiftplusone> good luck
[19:31] <flexus> Vibe: filesystem can be checked with fsck
[19:31] <shiftplusone> and regarding your debian question earlier... there is no reason to use debian over raspbian.

[20:19] <stormbytes> i was just pulling the plug :)
[20:19] <stormbytes> can you actually harm an sd card? i mean physically
[20:19] <flexus> sure, you might do that
[20:19] <stormbytes> (without use of a hammer)
[20:20] <martk100> If I f.write it deletes the file. If I append it just appends. What do |I use?
[20:21] <shiftplusone> martk100, google seems to suggest that python is stupid and you need to read, edit and then re-write.
[20:21] <flexus> one of my cheap sd cards got mechanical problems and got a crack in the middle.
[20:21] <shiftplusone> martk100, actually, take a look at fileinput. http://stackoverflow.com/questions/17140886/how-to-search-and-replace-text-in-a-file-using-python
[20:21] <stormbytes> this card doesn't have any physical damage

[20:28] <flexus> some of my spare cards are class b
[20:28] <stormbytes> there's what appears to be a '4' with circle around it
[20:28] <stormbytes> that's it.
[20:28] <flexus> class 64
[20:29] <flexus> both class 6
[20:29] <stormbytes> basically -- stay clear of class #10
[20:29] <stormbytes> what's the second issue?
[20:29] * ech0s7 (~ech0s7@host213-155-dynamic.55-79-r.retail.telecomitalia.it) has joined #raspberrypi
[20:29] <shiftplusone> stormbytes, are you running mysql?
[20:30] <stormbytes> nope
[20:30] <stormbytes> raspian base install with rvm/ruby
[20:30] <stormbytes> raspbian
[20:30] <shiftplusone> then the last thing to try is to run a fake sd card checker
[20:30] <stormbytes> latest img
[20:30] <shiftplusone> http://www.rmprepusb.com/tutorials/-fake-usb-flash-memory-drives
[20:31] <stormbytes> what exactly is a 'fake sd card checker' ?
[20:31] * GrimKriegor (~GrimKrieg@a79-169-136-76.cpe.netcabo.pt) has joined #raspberrypi
[20:31] <stormbytes> checks if the sd card is counterfeit?
[20:31] <shiftplusone> supposed to anyway
[20:32] <PovAddict> some pendrives / SD cards lie about their capacity
[20:32] <flexus> interesting, thx shiftplusone
[20:32] <PovAddict> and work well until you fill up their *real* capacity
[20:33] <flexus> my rootfs was kinda full,...
[20:33] <shiftplusone> There's some software that does extra checks, like model number, vendor id or whatever other info you can read back from the device and checks that it's cromulent.
[20:34] <flexus> 94% in use
[20:34] <shiftplusone> I don't have the link handy though
[20:34] <stormbytes> that's interesting... i'm pretty sure a lot of my issues started after i used raspi-config to expand to use full sd card
[20:34] <stormbytes> i'm on a mac
[20:35] <shiftplusone> But if you have eliminated the three known causes, it may be worth sending the card to Gordon at RPF to test it. Last I saw he was working on an sd card sniffer contraption, I think.
[20:37] * Moshin (~bangboom@ has joined #raspberrypi
[20:37] <stormbytes> i just downloaded f3write which seems to be a command line checker
[20:38] <stormbytes> i'm zero'ing out the card now.. hopefully if there's a bad cluster somewhere it will show up, otherwise f3write might find it.
[20:39] <shiftplusone> f3 looks good
[20:42] * Diaoul (~Diaoul@static-5-51-3-145.ftth.abo.bbox.fr) has joined #raspberrypi
[20:43] <stormbytes> damn
[20:43] <stormbytes> where will the fraud stop
[20:43] <stormbytes> serioulsy... what ever happened to representing something AND selling that same something! ugh
[20:45] <shiftplusone> stormbytes, found the problem?
[20:45] <stormbytes> not yet... still zero'ing out the drive
[20:45] <[Saint]> It may /not/ be a fraudulent sdcard.
[20:45] <stormbytes> will then run f3
[20:45] <[Saint]> Yours certainly woun't be the first time raspi-config has trashed an sdcard.
[20:46] <stormbytes> i realize that.. i was just saying how absurd it is that fraud exists on this level --- unrelated rant
[20:46] <shiftplusone> ah, that sounded like you found something.
[20:46] <[Saint]> *wouldn't
[20:46] * ijustam (~ijustam@ Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[20:46] <shiftplusone> raspi-config doesn't really do anything that should trash an sd card.
[20:46] <[Saint]> I flatly refuse to use it now, and dissuade others from doing so.
[20:46] * girafe (~girafe@AGrenoble-651-1-384-47.w90-52.abo.wanadoo.fr) has joined #raspberrypi
[20:46] <[Saint]> right, /shouldn't/
[20:47] <stormbytes> if all else fails, i might try to flash it one last time and skip raspi-config's partition resize, just to see if that's what it was
[20:47] <[Saint]> past experience however...
[20:47] <shiftplusone> Do you pin the blame to the partition table manipulation or resize2fs?
[20:48] <shiftplusone> I mean, if you use gparted to resize, you're doing exactly the same thing. Maybe the difference is that you're not doing it while it's mounted, but again, resize2fs claims to support that.
[20:48] <[Saint]> For me it borked itself on partition expansion rather repeatably.
[20:48] <[Saint]> I now use gparted to expand all my images, or just plug the commandline directly.
[20:48] <shiftplusone> How is that any different?
[20:49] <[Saint]> rpi-update is another "shouldn't but does" one.
[20:49] <stormbytes> so far disk utilities checks out... on to f3
[20:49] <flexus> its practical to see first sector
[20:49] <[Saint]> shiftplusone: I have no idea, as I said, it shouldn't be.
[20:49] <[Saint]> but reality vs. expactation don't always align.
[20:51] <[Saint]> It could, of course, be one gigantic fluke.
[20:51] * kij__ (kij__@c-76-23-251-139.hsd1.ct.comcast.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[20:51] <[Saint]> I've never had an sdcard bork itself when I've run the expansion process, and have when I've let raspi-update do it, a few times, but that doesn't necessarily mean there's a correlation.
[20:52] <[Saint]> I could just be "lucky".
[20:52] <shiftplusone> Aye, but you're making two claims which contradict each other and one must be false. 1) raspi-config borks the sd card 2) typing the same commands manually, doesn't. If the same commands run, the hw doesn't care HOW it's being run....
[20:52] <flexus> i'll give you a note if one of my cards is fake
[20:52] <[Saint]> I'm fairly convinved rpi-update only exists to trash filesystems, though.
[20:52] <[Saint]> *convinced
[20:53] <shiftplusone> [Saint], there are a known issue where that was the case... unfortunately, the solution was to run rpi-update. Has this happened to you when using recent firmware?
[20:53] * dreamon (~dreamon@unaffiliated/dreamon) has joined #raspberrypi
[20:53] <[Saint]> If "recent" means "newer than ~6 months or so", then likely not.
[20:54] <[Saint]> There's only so many times repairing a filesystem is interesting.
[20:54] <shiftplusone> yeah, that sounds like a good timeframe, but I would make it a month or so, to be safe.
[20:54] <[Saint]> aha.
[20:55] * govg (~govg@unaffiliated/govg) has joined #raspberrypi
[20:55] <shiftplusone> I would hope that the raspberrypi-bootloader package has firmware that's recent enough (I don't see why it wouldn't)
[20:55] <[Saint]> I'm _definitely_ on new firmware now. 'cos, Arch. I've just been avoiding rpi-update, but mostly due to the fact that Arch makes it totally needless.
[20:56] <shiftplusone> so rpi-update (and apt-get upgrade, which also borked filesystems) shouldn't be a problem.
[20:56] <shiftplusone> oh yeah, don't use rpi-update on Arch D=, they'll kill you.
[20:56] * [Saint] deals with neither of those services now
[20:56] <shiftplusone> Even on raspbian, we have the nightlies now.
[20:56] <[Saint]> My little hand rolled Arch images have been holding stead for a few hundred days.
[20:57] <flexus> unnecessary too on arch
[20:57] <[Saint]> Holy crap. Raspbian has metapackages for kernel and firmware now?
[20:57] <[Saint]> I missed that...
[20:57] <shiftplusone> It has for a very long time.
[20:57] <shiftplusone> It's a shame the Arch folks have moved away from images. Might mean it will be taken off the downloads page =(
[20:58] <[Saint]> Well. That shows how long I've been avoiding it I guess.
[20:59] <shiftplusone> If it comes to that though, I think I'll put my hand up to maintain the images for the download page.
[20:59] <[Saint]> shiftplusone: haha - snap.
[20:59] <flexus> on arch i went for core/linux-raspberrypi-latest before, after the filesystem crash i stayed on 3.12
[20:59] <[Saint]> I was just going to say how trivial it would be to make an "image" that automates the build process.
[20:59] * Ryitt (3e8eae60@gateway/web/freenode/ip. Quit (Quit: Page closed)
[20:59] <flexus> we'll see
[20:59] <shiftplusone> [Saint], I already have the scripts.
[21:00] <[Saint]> I'd rather not push out full images for Arch myself, seems needless, since everything will get updated anyway.
[21:00] <[Saint]> well, almost everything.
[21:00] <[Saint]> build on demand is nicer IMO.
[21:00] * [Saint] too
[21:00] <[Saint]> I just don't have them packaged in a dd'able everything-does-itself-for-you format.
[21:01] <shiftplusone> I'd just make check daily whether their latest md5sum has changed. If it has, download the archive and extract it into the image.... simple enough.
[21:01] <[Saint]> I do have a "point at sdcard and press the fire button" Arch image build script, though.
[21:02] <shiftplusone> (and the script can create the image from scratch or use an existing empty one to speed things up)
[21:02] <[Saint]> Jesus.
[21:02] <shiftplusone> would just need to modify it to extract arch rather than bootstrap raspbian. >.>
[21:02] <[Saint]> sounds like we independantly created almost exactly the same thing.
[21:02] <[Saint]> weird.
[21:03] <flexus> redundant :]
[21:03] <shiftplusone> heh, I think this has been independently created by 1000s of people.
[21:03] <shiftplusone> just for different purposes
[21:03] <[Saint]> Redundant Array of Arch Scripts
[21:03] <stormbytes> hmm weird, i think the card might be bad
[21:03] <shiftplusone> stormbytes, judging by?
[21:03] <stormbytes> https://gist.github.com/stormbytes/ffedfc4e9068f0f0882e
[21:04] <stormbytes> thats the output from f3write
[21:04] <stormbytes> reading now... f3read that is
[21:04] <flexus> i'll really make some arch image with /boot and the rest on usb drive
[21:04] <[Saint]> that's absolutely trivial.
[21:05] <[Saint]> very small change.
[21:05] <[Saint]> I wish more images offerd that ability to be honest.
[21:05] <shiftplusone> wouldn't really be a single ddable image though
[21:05] <[Saint]> Not if you wanted it to be efficient.
[21:06] <[Saint]> It could just copy itself out to the destimation and clean up. but that would mean having to have an sdcard that could accommodate the compressed image in full.
[21:06] <shiftplusone> meaning you can just dd the same thing to both? >_< I know people do that and then modify cmdline.txt, but..... no.
[21:06] * froggy (~froggy@unaffiliated/limpet) has joined #raspberrypi

[21:07] <stormbytes> ok well.. card's not a fake and everything checked out
[21:07] <shiftplusone> stormbytes, hurray.... kind of.
[21:07] <[Saint]> yeah.
[21:07] <stormbytes> will try it one last time without raspi-config partition resize
[21:07] <stormbytes> see if that adds to stability
[21:07] <shiftplusone> It would be better if the card was bad....
[21:07] <[Saint]> not really a celebration.
[21:07] <stormbytes> yes it would shiftplusone
[21:07] <[Saint]> Indeed.
[21:08] * jiuweigui (~jiuweigui@unaffiliated/jiuweigui) Quit (Quit: I gotta run. I've got universe to master.)
[21:08] <shiftplusone> stormbytes, well, if you know your power supply is good, you're running the latest raspbian image, it's not a cheap card off ebay and it's not a fancy class 10 card and you're not running software like mysql... it might be worth flagging it with the raspberry pi foundation.
[21:09] <[Saint]> actually now that I think of it, it would be _bloody_ trivial to check for a dotfile in /boot and decide to move the main image off to USB.
[21:10] <[Saint]> I'd really like a user prompt, but, ...nah. Effort.
[21:10] <stormbytes> pwr sup is 2A@5V, card *is* an 'inexpensive' sandisk 4Gb -- nothing fancy I don't think (avg write speed was around 5.4 mb/s)
[21:10] <[Saint]> Asking a user to manually place a file isn't heartbreaking.
[21:10] <[Saint]> And its on a FAT filesystem, so they can access it.
[21:10] * [Saint] ponders
[21:10] <stormbytes> before hitting up the folks at RP i'll give it a short without raspi-config's resizing *and* try another card, just for giggles
[21:10] <stormbytes> ;)
[21:10] <stormbytes> thanks for the tips everyone
[21:11] <shiftplusone> stormbytes, I don't know if anyone will have time to take a look at it any time soon, or if we have the technology to analyse the problem properly, but this is the sort of thing they'd like to get to the bottom of.
[21:11] * [Saint] is well aware of how much of a bastard sd can be when it really, really, really shouldn't be from his Rockbox days

[21:37] * m1nus (~m1nus@c-76-30-178-81.hsd1.tx.comcast.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[21:38] <niston> saw a forum post suggesting to reconfigure syslog so less kernel chatter
[21:38] <shiftplusone> I'm somewhat sceptical
[21:39] <[Saint]> That would only reduce _visible_ kernel chatter, unless I'm mistaken.
[21:39] * Encrypt (~Chuck-nor@AMontsouris-553-1-49-175.w92-151.abo.wanadoo.fr) has joined #raspberrypi
[21:39] <[Saint]> It'll all still be happening behind the scenes.
[21:40] <niston> the idea is apparently that writing log entries takes time
[21:40] <niston> are there any other ideas for reducing boot time?
[21:40] <shiftplusone> I'm working on something where every microsecond counts and printk does eat up a lot of time, whether it's displayed or just logged, but it's not going to add up to much of a boot time decrease.
[21:41] <shiftplusone> switch to arch
[21:41] <niston> I tried mono on arch and it was a desaster :)
[21:41] * cave (~various@gateway/tor-sasl/cave) Quit (Quit: bye)
[21:41] <shiftplusone> or use bootlogd to see where the boot time goes
[21:41] <shiftplusone> but I think you'll find that it mostly goes to the essentials.
[21:41] <niston> sounds like a plan!
[21:41] <niston> well im down from 27 seconds to 25 seconds so far
[21:41] <shiftplusone> switching to systemd is an option, but I often see people having trouble with systemd on raspbian.
[21:42] <niston> 20 seconds until link up
[21:42] <niston> did that
[21:42] <niston> also syslogd
[21:42] * cave (~various@gateway/tor-sasl/cave) has joined #raspberrypi
[21:42] <shiftplusone> 25 seconds with systemd? O_o there's certainly room for improvement.
[21:42] <niston> bootlogd you say?
[21:43] * niston digs around
[21:43] <shiftplusone> no
[21:43] <shiftplusone> I am thinking of bootchartd
[21:43] <niston> doesnt that require X?
[21:43] <swiss> bootchart++
[21:43] <shiftplusone> nope
[21:43] * niston just tossed out the X
[21:44] <shiftplusone> How long does the kernel take? If you strip it down to the essentials, you can cut that time down a bit. Gordon claims to boot buildroot-based install in 5 second. The stock kernel takes longer than that.
[21:44] <niston> 5 seconds would be a dream
[21:44] <niston> I'm looking at dmesg
[21:44] <shiftplusone> oh... buildroot... there's an idea. What do you actually need?
[21:44] <shiftplusone> Do you need a full system with the ability to install packages and all that?
[21:45] <shiftplusone> Or is this an embedded thing for your radio majig?
[21:45] <niston> I need ipv4, possibly v6, ntp of course, then USB and I2S sound
[21:45] <niston> yup
[21:45] <niston> radio thing
[21:45] <niston> sshd will be nice, too
[21:45] <shiftplusone> do you care about stuff being on the card, but not used?
[21:46] <niston> not really
[21:46] <shiftplusone> You can hijack the boot process entirely.
[21:47] <shiftplusone> With a custom inittab. Or your own init script.
[21:47] <shiftplusone> that will basically only run what you launch and it's up to you to mount things, bring up the network, start whatever you need.
[21:47] <niston> I've read about some tool to create a custom "distribution", would that be buildroot ?
[21:47] <shiftplusone> yes, that would be buildroot
[21:48] <shiftplusone> I am not sure how much fun you'll have getting it to play ball with the version of mono you want.
[21:48] <niston> mono is 3.2.3

[21:50] <niston> think I should install a linux vm on my desktop...
[21:51] <ShorTie> i believe you only need to mess with buildroot if your gonna distrubute the software, other wize make, make install is good enough for a single system
[21:51] <shiftplusone> niston, the pi is actually a good system to play around with this sort of thing.
[21:51] <niston> ShorTie: well I'd like to create a clean image some day
[21:51] <phire> ShorTie, na, buildroot is good for one off builds too.
[21:52] <phire> actually, it's not really aimed at making a distribution
[21:52] <niston> shiftplusone: won't it take forever and a day to do it on a pi ?
[21:52] <phire> buildroot should be done on your desktop
[21:52] <shiftplusone> niston, if I were you i'd either use buildroot, then if that becomes too much of a headache, use raspbian as a base, but use busybox or a custom init script.
[21:52] <shiftplusone> niston, buildroot builds on the desktop, then you copy what it spits out.
[21:52] <niston> ok so I install a debian vm?

[22:03] <[Saint]> I suspect they're fairly similar.
[22:03] <[Saint]> Different tools.

[22:04] * Keanu73 (~Keanu73@unaffiliated/keanu73) Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[22:04] <shiftplusone> I can't get used to tui text editors or irssi. So I use geany and hexchat. Then I'm also using windows on the side, so I'm using the mouse all the time anyway.
[22:04] <[Saint]> I do get yelled at occasionally, though. Ms. [Saint] *hates* my mechanical keyboards.
[22:04] <[Saint]> Especially at the speed I type.
[22:04] <shiftplusone> heh
[22:05] <[Saint]> She uses one of those terrible thin wafer/membrane silent things with no tactile feedback.
[22:05] <[Saint]> uuugh.
[22:06] <shiftplusone> I got a mechanical keyboard, but I don't really see it as being any better.
[22:06] <flexus> some solution is cmu sphinx gg
[22:06] <flexus> against typing
[22:06] <[Saint]> shiftplusone: it really depends on the switches you're using.
[22:06] <[Saint]> its the switches, and combinations thereof, that make the difference.
[22:06] <shiftplusone> I am not too fussed about the 'feel' of the keys. As long as everything is spaced and layed out correctly.
[22:06] <[Saint]> I use MX reds, and MX blacks.
[22:07] <[Saint]> I like Shift,CTrl, Enter and friends to be slightly stiffer.
[22:07] <[Saint]> Typing analysis showed that Enter and Backspace are my most frequently mispresserd keys.
[22:07] <shiftplusone> http://www.razerzone.com/razer-mechanical-switches
[22:08] <[Saint]> I have another board decked out with MX clear/pandas.
[22:08] <shiftplusone> The keyboard had the best reviews by programmers, so I picked it up.
[22:08] * kiely is now known as supersadkiely
[22:08] <[Saint]> I use the clear/pands board for gaming.
[22:08] <[Saint]> And the red/black board for typing.
[22:08] <[Saint]> *panda
[22:09] <shiftplusone> pretty sure I wouldn't notice or care about the difference >_<
[22:09] <[Saint]> (odd hybrid of MX clear and MX white)
[22:09] <[Saint]> I'm sure you'd notice it in double blind testing.
[22:09] <[Saint]> The spring tension, tactile response, and return rate are all wildly different.

[22:47] <shiftplusone> shouldn't be
[22:47] <niston> http://buildroot.uclibc.org/downloads/manual/manual.html#getting-buildroot doesnt say so
[22:47] <shiftplusone> well... find out where locale.h is supposed to come from and why you don't have it
[22:48] <niston> vmware tools also complained about no locale.h, but it was just a warning there
[22:49] <niston> maybe installing build-essential will help
[22:49] <ShorTie> did you define any locals in raspi-config ??
[22:49] <niston> this is not on a pi
[22:49] <niston> this is the linuxmint vm now :)
[22:50] <ShorTie> oh, a vitual machine ??
[22:50] <niston> yeah
[22:50] <niston> for the buildroot
[22:50] <niston> yeah build-essentials was good
[22:50] <niston> it now complains about requiring ncurses
[22:50] <niston> but uhm theres other options I think?
[22:51] <niston> GTK based?
[22:51] <niston> or QtBased that is the question
[22:51] <niston> well neither work :)

[23:04] <ShorTie> normally you just got to put a '-dev' on the end of the name
[23:05] <ShorTie> you need the dev stuff to compile stuff

[23:48] <[Saint]> The two locations I'm testing it out in have fairly tech savvy occupants who don't mind (at least they say they don't) how hideous it looks without a proper case to accommodate it all.
[23:49] <flexus> looks like a nice aproach
[23:50] * cryingkiely is now known as sadkiely
[23:51] <[Saint]> Well worth the cost, but I'm waiting for the B+centric version to come out before I put it into fullscale deployment

[23:52] <Sonny_Jim> Saw a lot of BBC Bs at the weekend

[23:54] <[Saint]> I've decided its a bit of a bother to support multiple different hardware and software configurations, so everyone's getting a free upgrade to the B,G,N wireless repeater/1TB network attached storage/optional anonymizing AP/{subsonic|mach5|supersonic} server/samba share, print server boxes.
