[0:00] <AmonX> Hello everyone Happy holidays and merry christmas and any other celebration and non celebration thereof :D
[0:00] <abnormal> if you key in terminal inxi -h gives you all the commands inxi will do.... and if you want to share it in IRC you add the /exec before the command in here.

[0:02] <abnormal> yeh?
[0:02] <abnormal> lol
[0:03] <abnormal> I have a digital one wifie uses by her desk.
[0:04] <abnormal> I don't need it cuz now I can do it right here on my pi....

[0:14] <AmonX> I am looking to replace a digital camera with a set up involving a RPI with the camera module. Basically the idea is to mount the camera possibly on servos on the end of "stick" in order to take pictures over a wall (hold of a ship to be exact) without having to climb up to look over. The main issue would be the need for a flash for low light situations and weather proofing it to the point it can be used in the rain. This is viable or s
[0:14] <AmonX> hould I look for a better solution?

[0:20] * chaotic (~chaotic@unaffiliated/chaotic) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:20] <abnormal> Otherwise, it can be done, just the weather proofing is very important and will need an expert to make sure pi camera doesn't get wet and adding a LED for light and protect lens from getting wet.

[0:28] <SpeedEvil> AmonX: that's a hell of a range for flash
[0:29] <AmonX> Sorry I thought you just meant in general... Standard point and click flash range
[0:30] <SpeedEvil> ah
[0:30] <SpeedEvil> I don't think the picam has any way of triggering a flash reliably

[0:36] <AmonX> Yeah that was suggested to me unfortunately the cameras being replaced arent cannons :) but thank you very much
[0:38] <Exposure> can you damage a photo transistor by hooking it up the wrong way?
[0:38] <SpeedEvil> Exposure: yes
[0:38] <Exposure> trying to build a pulse counter with the photo transistor in a tcrt5000
[0:38] <SpeedEvil> Exposure: depending on stuff
[0:38] <Exposure> and I swapped collector/emitter
[0:39] <SpeedEvil> It is probably just fine
[0:39] <Exposure> gpio pin is always high
[0:39] <SpeedEvil> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/European_law_on_drug_precursors See 'reverse voltage'
[0:39] <SpeedEvil> err
[0:39] <Exposure> I guess it should toggle when I cover the sensor

[0:40] <SpeedEvil> How have you hooked it up
[0:40] * mfa298 (~mfa298@gateway.yapd.net) Quit (Ping timeout: 255 seconds)
[0:40] <SpeedEvil> It says 5V is maximum voltage reverse - so that will not have killed it
[0:40] <Exposure> ok
[0:41] <SpeedEvil> Same for the diode
[0:41] <Exposure> I have 3.3V to the collector and gnd with a 10k resistor and gpio7 on the emitter
[0:42] <SpeedEvil> yo mean a 10K resistor from ground to gpio7 and emitter connected to gpio7 ?
[0:43] <AmonX> Thank you again
[0:43] <SpeedEvil> Exposure: And what LED current?
[0:43] <Exposure> I don't use the led
[0:44] <SpeedEvil> What light source are you sing
[0:44] <Exposure> gnd -> resistor -> emitter and gpio7 -> emitter
[0:45] <Exposure> I tried with the flash from my phone to get a bright light source
[0:45] <Exposure> it just stays high and never turns low
[0:46] <SpeedEvil> Short it iwth a couple of wires
[0:46] <SpeedEvil> does it go low?
[0:47] <Exposure> nope
[0:49] <ShorTie> hmmm, mkdir changed P to p ??

[0:52] <Ephexeve> Hey guys, willing to install rasbian, but I don't want X and many other packages. Is there any clean rasbian?
[0:52] <Ephexeve> without X, just scratch?
[0:52] <ShorTie> think you need X for scratch, don't ya ??
[0:52] <Ephexeve> Eh, no.
[0:53] <Ephexeve> I will just SSH.

[2:46] <NedScott> I always think it's funny that there are so many kickstarters for ideas that have already been done before

[2:48] <NedScott> various things to get people up out of bed and do something in order to turn the clock off
[2:49] <NedScott> when you break it down, this is basically the same thing as any keypad alarm clock, but it uses the phone and allows you to position the speaker close to the bed
[2:49] <mutandi> i like the idea of having a wireless speaker that can be triggered based on events - whether it's a motion sensor in another room or a clock
[2:49] <NedScott> I mean, it's clever, but it seems like an odd thing for a kickstarter
[2:49] <NedScott> I always imagine kickstarters to be really new or different ideas

[7:29] <chaitime> hello
[7:29] <chaitime> can the rpi handle streaming videos from a server?
[7:29] <chaitime> or would it lag on 720p vids
[7:30] <owen_> chaitime: afaik, that is no problem
[7:30] <Triffid_Hunter> chaitime: it can stream 1080p as long as you've bought a codec unlock key and it's not one of those really high bitrate ones that'll max out the network
[7:32] <owen_> have a read of http://blog.miguelgrinberg.com/post/stream-video-from-the-raspberry-pi-camera-to-web-browsers-even-on-ios-and-android
[7:32] <chaitime> to be clear, the rpi would be HDMI out to TV, it would connect to server and would be playing a video feed, and user would have option to browse videos and play them, most of the HD quality, over wifi too
[7:32] <chaitime> sounds ok?

[8:17] <taplaptap> can you guys think of a tablet that will accept hdmi input so i can take my pi with me? my laptop only does hdmi output. I would like to get a tablet going so I can use the pi and unplug it periodically and use the tablet.. kinda thing
[8:22] <CoJaBo> taplaptap: You'd need a monitor, not a tablet
[8:22] <taplaptap> i can't find a portable monitor tho heh. it's too bad my laptop doesn't do hdmi input
[8:23] <NedScott> Motorola Lapdock
[8:23] <CoJaBo> taplaptap: Better, put a wifi stick in the pi and access it remotely from the tablet.
[8:23] <taplaptap> my new pi doesn't do the old yellow connector for the tv. The tv i have doesn't except HDMI :( .. so i gotta take my old pi to vancouver
[8:23] <taplaptap> CoJaBo, ya i could do that as well i guess
[8:23] <NedScott> taplaptap: you can get a cable to give you the yellow connector again
[8:23] <CoJaBo> taplaptap: not even DVI?
[8:24] <taplaptap> NedScott, um how? I called a computer store and they said one doesn't exist hah
[8:24] <NedScott> they lied
[8:24] <taplaptap> CoJaBo, this tv is a boat anchor from early 2000's
[8:25] <NedScott> http://amzn.com/B000I1D0BW
[8:25] <CoJaBo> Mine is too, and it still has DVI lol
[8:25] <CoJaBo> Actually, DVI is even the only port not burnt out >_>
[8:26] <taplaptap> tv's came with dvi?
[8:26] <taplaptap> it's been so long since i've had one of those
[8:26] <taplaptap> our uncle is blind in vancouver, he has old tvs... he just needs to hear :)

[8:29] <CoJaBo> Mine's a 60" rear-projection
[8:30] <taplaptap> NedScott, wow i didn't know the audio output was hooked up for hdmi
[8:30] <NedScott> you mean composite?
[8:30] <NedScott> yellow RCA = composite
[8:31] <NedScott> at least on the B+ and A+
[8:31] <taplaptap> how the hell does that work tho with the audio port?
[8:31] <taplaptap> seems so weird that it works
[8:31] <NedScott> when you use headphones the video signal just shorts out and doesn't do anything
[8:31] <taplaptap> yeah composite, my bad
[8:34] <taplaptap> that's awesome, thanks for that
[8:34] <NedScott> no problem
[8:36] <kleanchap> I am having problem with Raspbian detecting headphone jack for audio. I have tried several commandline mp3 players and they cannot detect the audio device. Any suggestions on how to troubleshoot and fix this problem?

[13:16] <knob> or you want the rPi camera, for use in your google chat on another computer?
[13:17] <RahulAN> knob, no i am not typing on Rpi
[13:17] <RahulAN> ShorTie, I know that but which package do i use?? i dont have a guess
[13:17] <ShorTie> is the pi headless ??
[13:17] <knob> Ahh... so you want Google Chat in one computer, and right next to that, your rPi with the camera?
[13:18] <RahulAN> knob, Yes..
[13:18] <knob> Ok ok...
[13:18] <knob> Well, like ShorTie says, we need to install some software. I am not sure which... so lets go to the Google Mobile
[13:20] <ShorTie> if it is headless, no keyboard and stuff, you could always put x11vnc on and type from there
[13:21] <knob> RahulAN, ShorTie's suggestion, in my opinion, would be best.
[13:21] <knob> I have been searching on google... and... well... ShorTie's suggestion seems much better than the stuff I have found.
[13:22] <RahulAN> knob, I am not getting what suggestion you found best..
[13:22] <RahulAN> ShorTie, I am not on pi now..
[13:22] <knob> The x11vnc on the rPi
[13:22] <knob> You load up x11vnc on your rPi, then control the rPi via x11vnc on your physical computer
[13:22] <knob> Then, on your rPi, load up google chat. ShorTie, like that? Sort of?
[13:23] <RahulAN> Ok
[13:23] <ShorTie> or tightvncserver, but that 1 is so hard to get it to use the screen 0

[13:58] <Hiro`> Hi folks, got a raspberry pi B+ for crimbo, been trying to get it up and running this morning. When I plug it in, both LEDs on the board light up, but my monitor (which is definitely working) complains that it is receiving no signal. Can anyone suggest anything? Thx

[14:03] <Froolap> Turn on your monitor before you apply power to the pi.
[14:03] <Froolap> did you create an sd image for the pi?
[14:04] <Hiro`> I got the starter kit with NOOBs already installed on the card.
[14:05] <Hiro`> Froolap: thanks, BTW. I've already tried switching the monitor on first. It didn't seem to make any difference.
[14:06] <Froolap> if it were me, I think I would go through and make a new sd image.

[14:07] <Froolap> If you have a spare sd card, then use that.... but first boot is kind of critical in that it tries to config the system, time/date time zone.... keyboard format, etc...

[14:32] <Froolap> thank me when it works for you. :)
[14:34] <Hiro`> Do you have any idea how the SD port should appear on my system (i.e., when I run `df -h`)?
[14:34] <Froolap> I've booted up most of the image files just to look at them. I've been running pidora since I'm a fedora fan.
[14:34] <Froolap> Personally I prefer blkid to df -h but that's just me.
[14:36] <Hiro`> I'll probably opt for raspberrian or whatever it's called. I was also hoping to write my own if I have the time!
[14:36] <Froolap> Logging into my pi and typing mount /dev/mmcblk0p1 on /boot type vfat
[14:38] <Froolap> depending on your system the card may show up as /dev/mmcb* or it may show up as /dev/sd?p
[14:38] <Froolap> where ? = a letter prpresenting the physical drive and p = the partition number.
[14:38] <Froolap> and prpresenting = representing
[14:39] <Hiro`> Ah, yesy, sorry, I mean on my laptop, not on my pi. I've found a good answer on ASk Ubuntu, though, so I'll try the suggestions there.
[14:40] <Froolap> it depends on how your computer is connecting the sd card on how it's named....

[15:27] <gordonDrogon> heller\, do you have a standard display - hitachi controller?
[15:28] <gordonDrogon> heller\, you just need to work out what pins on the 8574 connect to the display.
[15:28] <heller\> yes the hitachi
[15:28] <gordonDrogon> the wiringPi drivier will work OK with it.
[15:29] <gordonDrogon> however you'll need to write some code in C to work with that.
[15:29] <gordonDrogon> but anything in python ought to just work too.
[15:29] <heller\> dont do c
[15:29] <heller\> :p
[15:29] <gordonDrogon> then find a python driver for the 8574 - it's just an 8-bit IO chip, then plumb this into a python driver for the standard hitacht controllers and off you go.
[15:30] <heller\> easy to say
[15:30] <gordonDrogon> alternatively, throw that board away and interface it directly to the Pi and do it in one-stet in C/BASIC/Pithon/PHP/Perl/BASH/etc.

[15:48] <Froolap> Banana pi is not something you want. I could tell you stories.
[15:48] <Armand> CooLBALL1, look at the ODroid C1 if you want something seriously better than an rPi.
[15:49] <Froolap> Bottom line is if you go to the bananapi channel you will see 3 clients that never say a word. there is NO support for the banana. So if you can't create an os for yourself you are out of luck.
[15:49] <CooLBALL1> oic
[15:50] <heller\> ShorTie: syre
[15:50] <plugwash> CooLBALL1, newer? yes, higher spec? yes, better? that really depends how you define better. the value of a large, active and beginner friendly community should not be underestimated
[15:51] <Froolap> I have the bananapi, and it looks to me like the fedora package that they offer is security compromised before you install it. It has several users that login during the boot process (even if they are deleted) that install stuff via yum and then delete the logs.
[15:51] <heller\> does anyone have a nice simple example/tutorial on how to drive i2c devices?
[15:51] <Froolap> So you don't really know what the os is doing, but apparently it's something the people that put together the os don't want you to know.

[16:10] <niston> hi gordon :)
[16:10] * ChanServ (ChanServ@services.) has joined #raspberrypi
[16:10] <niston> agaran: I thought the P5 connector is I2S
[16:10] <gordonDrogon> the Pi's pins are multi purpose - some can be used for many functions.
[16:11] <niston> but isn't i2c0 the "internal" i2c bus?
[16:11] * mgottschlag (~quassel@reactos/tester/phoenix64) has joined #raspberrypi
[16:11] <gordonDrogon> you can use I2C on the 2nd port on the P5 (P6) connector, but it's not visible in /dev/ by default anymore - basically the foundation don't want you using it, so they removed it.

[16:25] <agaran> gordonDrogon: wanted to use p5 connector to mount pi on power-supply board and use i2c to talk to stuff on power board..
[16:26] <agaran> (attiny/atmega there, doing power management, charger control and such..)
[16:26] <gordonDrogon> agaran, sounds like an idea - if you can pull it off - but I really don't know what they did to the kernel driver to block the other I2C interface from userland. I don't think they should have, but they seem to want to do other stuff with it.

[16:26] * darkbasic (~quassel@niko.linuxsystems.it) has joined #raspberrypi
[16:27] <gordonDrogon> A solutiuon I've seen others use is the serial port - the Tx pin will go low when the Pi halts - you can use that as a signal to remove power to the Pi

[16:40] <agaran> it is on other connector.. P5 is supposed to be mounted on bottom.. so I can use it to stack on power board, convinent.. no dangling cables above pi
[16:40] <niston> i see
[16:40] <niston> well shiftplusone said that you *can* use i2c0
[16:40] <gordonDrogon> you could trivially knock-up a clock+data type of comms interface yourself...
[16:40] <niston> but there's no warranty that the foundation won't break your stuff as they go along
[16:40] <niston> cuz i2c0 belongs to them.
[16:40] <agaran> of course I can, but why knock of something if there is real host master?
[16:41] <gordonDrogon> because of ^^^
[16:41] <agaran> so why they wired these pins to any connector then?
[16:41] <gordonDrogon> well - they're not really.
[16:41] <agaran> yeah, that sort of things me very sure to not think about getting second PI..
[16:42] <agaran> P5 is connector, prepared to be used, labeled AS usable not as 2 service connectors.. right?
[16:42] <gordonDrogon> the physical gpio pins aren't brought out on the B2 - they are on the B+ but marked to not use.
[16:42] <gordonDrogon> you can use them on P5/P6 but only by selecting the ALT modes yourself.
[16:43] <agaran> sure, how I can do that?
[16:44] <gordonDrogon> you look up the ALT modes to put the pins into, then you can either write a program to change them or use the gpio command.
[16:44] <gordonDrogon> e.g. gpio -g 10 alt4
[16:44] <gordonDrogon> e.g. gpio -g 10 mode alt4
[16:44] <agaran> here we go, :)
[16:44] <gordonDrogon> but get the right pin numbers - I just guessed that & the alt number too.
[16:44] <gordonDrogon> you'll need to read the manual.
[16:44] <agaran> which one?

[17:11] <Yohio> heller\: I'm afraid I can't help you, since I haven't done it myself
[17:12] <SpeedEvil> Elezium: I guess 'over the holidays' means that chinas out?
[17:12] <SpeedEvil> Elezium: got a roomba?
[17:13] <Yohio> it looks like you save the larger code to pylcdlib.py and then make your own program
[17:13] <Yohio> and use import pylcdlib to import it in your code

[17:17] <Yohio> are the 5V pins on pi always enabled when pi is on?
[17:17] * Keanu73__ is now known as Keanu73
[17:17] <IT_Sean> There is only ONE 5v pin, and yes, it is 'on' whenever the Pi is plugged in.
[17:18] <gordonDrogon> there are 2 5v pins on the GPIO connector.
[17:18] <IT_Sean> There are?
[17:18] <gordonDrogon> sure
[17:18] <IT_Sean> IS that new?
[17:18] <gordonDrogon> nope
[17:18] <IT_Sean> Balls.
[17:18] <IT_Sean> Okay, i stand corrected... there are two.
[17:18] <gordonDrogon> the 2nd was originally marked "Do not connect", but they changed that on the B2
[17:18] <IT_Sean> AHHHH!
[17:18] <IT_Sean> D'herp
[17:19] <gordonDrogon> when they made the other 3.3v pins and all the 0v pins 'official'.
[17:19] <omfgtora> i got a $30 gift cert for Amazon. What screen would y'all suggest?
[17:19] <gordonDrogon> agaran, I'd run the mode-change commands last - after loading the kernel modules, mknod, etc.
[17:19] <gordonDrogon> agaran, I guess that's what you mean?
[17:19] <Froolap> 60 inch HDMI screen works for me.
[17:19] <omfgtora> lol
[17:20] <Yohio> alright, I'll have to recheck the wiring to the 20x4 lcd then
[17:20] <omfgtora> sometimes an HDMI device is just too much for what i need
[17:20] <Yohio> or resolder it or something
[17:20] <Yohio> and hope I didn't destroy it while soldering it for the first time
[17:21] <agaran> gordonDrogon: nah, not exactly, i need to find way to toggle enable bit in C register for BSC0 first, because apparently BSC0 is disabled entirelly.. or handled by some internal kernel things which boils down to recompiling, oh well.. I can live with that.. or maybe I'll just skip idea to make power board for it and use PI just as toy time to time.. seems its more closed than I though with things and docs
[17:22] <gordonDrogon> agaran, not that closed - just that the foundation have decicded what you can & can't use more closely now.
[17:22] <gordonDrogon> ie. you have the means to change that in the kernel - but it's a pain.

[17:27] <SpeedEvil> yes
[17:27] <omfgtora> are there any that dont need external power?

[17:28] <omfgtora> i see
[17:29] <agaran> and routing too much of power through printed circuit board can be tricky, you need to be sure that tracks width/thickness is sufficient for that..
[17:29] <omfgtora> what i am looking for is a way to troubleshoot/setup a pi without the need of an external monitor
[17:29] <omfgtora> i'm not really looking for a permanent screen
[17:29] <agaran> I doubt if any usable display can work out of usb power limit.. thats 2.5W
[17:30] <omfgtora> i see...
[17:30] <agaran> of course phone ones eat less but.. 256x192 pixels aren't great for console..;)
[17:31] <gordonDrogon> its the backlight that's power hungry - not the display electronics as such.

[17:39] <omfgtora> im searching "raspberry pi I2C" on amazon
[17:39] <niston> then there will likely be some nonprintable control characters
[17:39] <niston> like move cursor to position x,y

[17:57] <Mr_005> okay thanks I will check them out.
[17:57] <Froolap> I've been happy with pidora but then I'm a fedora commnd line fan.
[17:58] <Froolap> I loaded all of the images long enough to look at them (5 minutes each). If xbmc works as pretty as it looks then that might be interestinig if you want to make your dumb tv into a smart tv.
[18:00] <Mr_005> Im actually interested in running squeezebox on it down the road, but not yet. It is similar to XBMC, but it can stream / convert FLAC on the fly, and is more suited for music. Music streaming is definitely something I am interested in looking into
[18:02] <omfgtora> I think Mr_005 is gonna have a lot of fun
[18:03] <Mr_005> lol I hope so!\
[18:05] <Mr_005> Im going to try pidora and come back when I get stuck.

[19:07] <CooLBALL1> holy cow wrong channel
[19:07] <omfgtora> thought so, just thought id ask
[19:07] <scoofy> unless you add swap
[19:07] <scoofy> that's possible
[19:07] <omfgtora> right
[19:07] <scoofy> but that's only 'virtual' mem
[19:07] <CooLBALL1> thanks for not getting mad at me
[19:07] <omfgtora> i heard SWAP is not good for sd cards
[19:08] <scoofy> omfgtora, umm.... well, it's not the best idea, indeed.
[19:08] <omfgtora> constantly reading/writing will kill the life, is what i heard
[19:08] <scoofy> but, i'd do it anyways
[19:08] * Mateon1 (~Mateon1@unaffiliated/mateon1) Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[19:08] <scoofy> well, when you're using it that includes writing too, then yes, it somewhat reduces lifespan.
[19:08] <omfgtora> i see
[19:08] <scoofy> it's like, you can write it 1000 times or 10,000 times or 100,000 times or so....
[19:08] <ShorTie> raspbian has swap by default
[19:09] <scoofy> so depending on how actively you use it, it may decrease lifespan a little
[19:09] <scoofy> so say, instead of 10 years, it may die in 5 years
[19:09] <omfgtora> i see
[19:09] <scoofy> still plenty of time :)

[19:11] <scoofy> is that good?
[19:11] <cousteau> 2.1 A
[19:11] <scoofy> hm.
[19:11] <cousteau> (or so it says)
[19:11] <scoofy> that should B good
[19:12] <scoofy> what kind of device is it?
[19:12] <cousteau> somebody said "yeah, that's a known issue", but I don't remember if it was here or in #raspbmc
[19:12] <cousteau> wifi dongle
[19:12] <scoofy> i only experienced it when power supply was not enough
[19:12] <scoofy> yea, i had that too when connecting wifi.
[19:12] <cousteau> should I grab a multimeter and test the test points?
[19:12] <ozzzy> cousteau, my B just about always resets on hot-plugging a USB device
[19:13] <scoofy> well... maybe just don't hot plug it
[19:13] <cousteau> hm, any idea why this could be?
[19:13] <ozzzy> nope
[19:13] <scoofy> i think i disconnected, plugged the usb device and then it worked
[19:13] <scoofy> (and i have no idea either)
[19:14] <IT_Sean> The B is still susceptable to that issue, as i recall. It was fixed in the B+, wasn't it?
[19:15] <cousteau> yeah but this didn't upgrade!
[19:15] <cousteau> damn I wish hardware could upgrade as well
[19:15] <IT_Sean> ?
[19:15] <Froolap> I remember reading that the reboot with usb tended to happen only on one port, didn't happen on the other port.... so use the port that reboots with your network dongle which you aren't likely to change.
[19:16] <cousteau> Froolap, ok, good to know, thanks!

[19:21] <ozzzy> sorry.... single-core with hyperthreading
[19:21] <scoofy> Atom are meant to be pretty low-power
[19:22] <scoofy> designed for mobile computing and laptops
[19:22] <scoofy> so i'd say that's not a surprise
[19:22] <ozzzy> with everything running it draws 980mA @ 12V
[19:22] <scoofy> not bad!
[19:22] <ozzzy> I can push it up... there are 6 USB ports LOL
[19:22] <scoofy> heh
[19:22] <ozzzy> but, everything that connects to it normally is on a powered hub

[19:26] <scoofy> wifi is conveinent, both for you and the hackers.
[19:26] <cousteau> yeah, it has its ups and downs; for example, now I wanted to change the wifi password and that involved ethernet
[19:26] <cousteau> wifi is set to WPA2 anyway

[19:29] * woodjrx (~quassel@woodonia.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[19:29] <scoofy> cousteau, well, at least if your unit has no monitor connected (say, a server) then not really susceptible to this kind of eavesdropping...
[19:29] <scoofy> (though everything can be hacked eventually, of course)
[19:30] <cousteau> well, it's based on interferences, so I guess ethernet is as vulnerable as a monitor
[19:30] <scoofy> i sometimes wonder how safe is a Pi, say, to run a web server
[19:30] <cousteau> ShorTie, ?
[19:30] <IT_Sean> "safe"? Well, it's not going to explode :p
[19:31] <scoofy> cousteau, CAT-5 cable is twisted pair, that diminishes interference somewhat, I believe - and, if someone is close enough to measure EF, then he's close enough to actually touch your server physicially
[19:31] <IT_Sean> It'd make a fine webserver for a small, simple page that only a few people at a time will be loading
[19:31] <cousteau> ok, new rule, from now on when somebody says "safe" everybody assumes they could mean "secure"; those are synonyms in many languages
[19:31] <scoofy> i mean, 'safe' as in, protected against hackers and external attacks
[19:31] <cousteau> so "secure"
[19:31] <CoJaBo> It cann apperently perform pretty OK even with more than a few people on it
[19:31] <scoofy> in my apache2 logs, sometimes 80-90% of all my traffic is basically, hacker attacks
[19:32] <IT_Sean> In that sense, it is NO DIFFERENT to any other linux based web server. It is as secure or as insecure as YOU make it.
[19:32] <scoofy> trying all kinds of exploits and zero days
[19:32] <CoJaBo> scoofy: Wow that's low
[19:32] <scoofy> are there Raspi zero days?
[19:32] <scoofy> ok, maybe 95%+ :)
[19:32] <scoofy> or so
[19:32] <CoJaBo> Mines like 99% :/
[19:32] <scoofy> depending on period
[19:32] <Armand> Mine's about 40-50%
[19:32] <CoJaBo> Raspi linux distros are just linux distros
[19:32] <scoofy> so.. i wonder if there are some 'raspi zero-day exploits' somewhere on the black markets
[19:32] <scoofy> or in NSA catalogs
[19:32] <CoJaBo> Keep it up to date, and it will be fine
[19:32] <omfgtora> so, the display i found earlier, in all the reviews say it takes some modification and/or downloading a custom rasbian. BUT i found the same screen WITH a 2gb sd card with the custom rom for $3 more!
[19:33] <Armand> Dropped massively after I dropped OVH's entire IP ranges. ;)
[19:33] <scoofy> well, i installed grsecurity kernel patch on the raspbian. it installed fine.
[19:33] <CoJaBo> Armand: Most of mine seem to come from Germany. Dunno why.
[19:33] <Armand> O_o
[19:34] <scoofy> (and yea, 'safe' equals 'secure' in my language, maybe that's why i confuse them in speak)
[19:34] <yggdrasil> well seeing as how it is simply debian linux im sure there are a list of availiable exploites.
[19:34] <CoJaBo> scoofy: Most exploits are at the web-applicatoin level anyway (a substantial fraction of those naturally being PHP). They don't even have anything to do with the server, OS, or hardware.
[19:34] <yggdrasil> shall i query metasploit ?
[19:35] <scoofy> CoJaBo, yes, i'm afraid most of them would be apache2 exploits etc.
[19:35] <CoJaBo> scoofy: Web application, not server..
[19:35] <scoofy> and php and all teh dynamic web sh*tz
[19:35] <scoofy> well, there are exploits for apache2 itself too
[19:35] <CoJaBo> scoofy: E.g., Wordpress

[19:36] <yggdrasil> the fact taht the source code is availbe means that anyone with resources can locate exploits

[19:50] <scoofy> then why are 50% of my exploits targeted at phpMyAdmin
[19:50] <scoofy> on my server
[19:50] <taza> Because people don't patch their shit and it's common
[19:50] <scoofy> so it has holes.
[19:50] <taza> No.
[19:51] <scoofy> no holes that *you* know of.
[19:51] <taza> Things built on php have holes, more often than not
[19:51] <taza> Well, in this case it's helpful that it's open source and you can go check
[19:51] <scoofy> just like, SSL was open source too
[19:51] <scoofy> (anyone remember heartbleed?)
[19:51] <taza> phpMyAdmin is not, in fact, php itself.
[19:51] <taza> Yeah, open source may have bugs. And so does closed-source software.
[19:52] <taza> Want bug-free software? Fund it.
[19:52] <scoofy> sure. it's a totally, entirely unrelated program, that has absolutely nothing to do with php at all.

[19:57] <scoofy> (back then, I did not even have SSH access to that box)
[19:57] <scoofy> all I know, is some h4x0rz injected some malicious PHP code into all of my pages.

[20:42] <gordonDrogon> straterra, (just curious about the AC or DC thing). You probably want to use a darlington driver to let the LEDs inside the SSRs conduct - most of them are 5-15mA, so more than a few might be too much for the Pi.
[20:42] <heller\> and raspberry would control a relay, or a fet
[20:43] <heller\> gordonDrogon: just wondering, where to connect that regulator

[20:44] <heller\> leds strip is 12V

[22:15] <Mr_005> Is the difference in power supplies just amperage? Im using my 50 watt USB hub to power it, so It can pull a few amps.
[22:16] <scoofy> well that's the most obvious difference.
[22:16] <scoofy> 1-2A is far enough.
[22:17] * martk100 (~martin@host-2-101-224-5.as13285.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[22:17] <abnormal> you need at least a 1A PSU on pi, and a powered USB hub...
[22:17] <martk100> How do i change from lxde to e17 on raspbian?
[22:18] <Mr_005> okay, cool. Thats what i figured.I didnt get a kit or anything, just the A+
[22:18] <scoofy> tehnically, it can boot on less. i think some 3-400 mA is enough to boot.
[22:18] <scoofy> but at least 700mA is recommended, more like 1A+
[22:18] <gyeben> abnormal: why would one need a powered USB hub?
[22:19] <gyeben> I mean, yes, it's good to have a powered hub
[22:19] <shiftplusone> Mr_005, the difference between power supplies is quality. A power supply may say it's a 2A supply, but only puts out 4V at that current. You may also have lossy cables where you can have a significant voltage drop. They can also explode, electrocute you and/or burn your house down. That's why it's important to use a genuine power supply.
[22:19] <gyeben> but it's not necessary
[22:19] <abnormal> so the power on pi is not robbed by the USB stuff plugged into pi
[22:19] <abnormal> like kybd, mouse, wifi, etc

[22:21] <shiftplusone> Doesn't matter if it's Chinese or not, just make sure the company that makes it has an office in your country so you can sue them when they burn your house down.

[22:24] <dob1> hi, i am looking at this guide, on the overclocking part, https://extremeshok.com/1081/raspberry-pi-raspbian-tuning-optimising-optimizing-for-reduced-memory-usage/ the first proposed setting is wrong, it's not 800mhz but 850mhz, but it's safe to use this setting even if it is 850 with no heatskin?
[22:25] <gyeben> dobl: yes, it's safe
[22:25] <shiftplusone> dob1, 1) that guide is absolute rubbish 2)don't worry about heatsinks, they do more harm than good, no matter how much you overclock.
[22:25] * Vibe (~Vibe@gateway/tor-sasl/vib3) has joined #raspberrypi
[22:25] <scoofy> is ventillation important?
[22:26] <gyeben> not really
[22:26] <shiftplusone> use vcgencmd measure_temp to check the temperature

[22:27] <shiftplusone> if it's below 80, you're fine.
[22:27] <abnormal> how do I install that feature, shiftplusone ?
[22:27] <shiftplusone> dob1, they're all 'safe'. The worst thing that will happen is that it won't boot.
[22:27] * Guest60720 (~quassel@tor/regular/SpeedEvil) Quit (Ping timeout: 256 seconds)
[22:27] <scoofy> says 47.1 C
[22:27] <shiftplusone> scoofy, that's very low, so temperature is the last thing to worry about right now.
[22:27] <shiftplusone> abnormal, sorry, which feature?
[22:27] <scoofy> heh. indeed.
[22:28] <abnormal> vcgencmd measure temp
[22:28] <dob1> shiftplusone, ok i will use it then
[22:28] <shiftplusone> abnormal, what os are you running?
[22:28] <dob1> thanks
[22:28] <abnormal> raspbain
[22:28] <shiftplusone> dob1, I should add that overclocking ALONE is perfectly safe. If you also start adjusting voltage levels and overriding protection, then you should be a bit careful.
[22:28] <shiftplusone> abnormal, it should already be there
[22:29] <shiftplusone> abnormal, if not, I think it's part of libraspberrypi-bin
[22:29] <scoofy> there's a _ in 'measure_temp'
[22:29] <abnormal> ok so I activate in term?
[22:29] * BitEvil is now known as SpeedEvil
