[0:02] <ali1234> that command doesn't download the youtube video, it streams it
[0:02] <ali1234> -g makes it output the real streaming URL

[0:05] <Dragonkeeper> djazz omxplayer works :P but froze me out of my session till i killed it lol
[0:05] <djazz> yea its fullscreen, uses gpu
[0:06] <djazz> you dont need lxde ui to use it though
[0:06] <ali1234> it uses the GPU decoding so it's outside of the control of the window manager with those silly overlays
[0:06] <Dragonkeeper> cant window mode it or which tty ?
[0:06] <Dragonkeeper> switch*
[0:06] <djazz> nope
[0:06] <ali1234> it will cover anything including the console
[0:06] <djazz> its gpu
[0:06] <ali1234> you can probably tell the GPU to render into a specific sub-area of the screen

[0:13] <blib> ShorTie: so everyone is back ordered?
[0:14] <ShorTie> UK like keep them all, lol.
[0:14] <Dragonkeeper> i picked up a pihut wifi for £4 but the program seems to not see the adapter after reboot ,,,

[0:21] <DF3D2> man I have two different micro sd cards, and 2 SD adapters and neither one works in my laptops sd card slot? A regular full sized sd card works fine though
[0:21] <DF3D2> I dont get it
[0:21] <Dragonkeeper> stupid question , OS is on the SD card right ?
[0:21] <djazz> im not sure what i will use my rpi2 for.. maybe liquidsoap works better now when its quad
[0:21] * x1337807x (~x1337807x@207-170-205-178.static.twtelecom.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:21] <Getterac7> Dragonkeeper: yes, raspi loads the OS from the SD card.
[0:21] <ShorTie> what do you mean 'don't work' ??
[0:22] <DF3D2> they dont show up in windows or linux
[0:22] <DF3D2> like they dont exist, yet they work fine in my phone
[0:22] <djazz> dmesg?
[0:22] <Dragonkeeper> im just gonna use mine for all the cli based apps and a vpn sort of thing so i can access it all when im not home and keep my irc /emails ect.. running
[0:22] <DF3D2> djazz, nada
[0:22] * davor (~davor@unaffiliated/davor) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:22] <ali1234> DF3D2: probably wrong voltage
[0:22] <DF3D2> what?
[0:22] <ali1234> you need to be careful, you can blow them up that way
[0:22] <ShorTie> try sdformatter on 1
[0:22] * Almazys (~Almazys@ip-129.net-89-3-97.rev.numericable.fr) Quit (Quit: Good bye all ! :))
[0:22] <DF3D2> I have no idea what you are saying
[0:22] <DF3D2> about voltage
[0:22] <ali1234> full size SD cards are 5v or 3.3v but microsd cards are 3.3v or 1.8v
[0:23] <DF3D2> im talking about the adapter
[0:23] <DF3D2> http://www.amazon.com/SanDisk-microSD-Memory-Adapter-MICROSD-ADAPTER/dp/B0047WZOOO <-- like that
[0:23] <ali1234> if you put a microsd card into a full size sd adapter and put it in a slot that only does 5v, it won't work
[0:23] <DF3D2> I know this slot has worked for them before
[0:24] <DF3D2> it's a broadcom sd card slot
[0:24] * atomi (~atomi@71-83-179-177.dhcp.lnbh.ca.charter.com) Quit (Quit: setting up a bouncer)
[0:24] * kaichanvong (~kaichanvo@li285-77.members.linode.com) Quit (Quit: _)
[0:24] <Dragonkeeper> ill be back... taking a pi break ;)
[0:24] <ShorTie> DF3D2, try this http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/File-Management/SDFormatter.shtml
[0:25] * fatalhalt (~kyle@c-71-201-7-76.hsd1.il.comcast.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:25] <blib> is there a breadboard for the gpio pins on the pi 2?
[0:25] <DF3D2> ShorTie, i dont think thats the issue, they dont show up at all even in disk manager in windows
[0:25] <blib> http://electronics.mcmelectronics.com/ - am trying to find things here to order
[0:25] <Getterac7> ali1234: you don't know what you're talking about... SD standard has voltage negotiation built in. And voltage is based on the card transfer rate.
[0:25] * turtlehat (~offmode@home.b3nny.eu) Quit ()
[0:26] <DF3D2> yeah I thought he was full of it
[0:26] <DF3D2> since they have a "dumb" adapter to full size
[0:26] <wesm> hi, when I toggle my hdmi display off and on with the tvservice tool I just get a blank screen. Is there anything else I need to get the screen to draw again?
[0:26] <ali1234> Getterac7: nope, sorry, you're entirely wrong, i have seen ancient sd card readers kill microsd cards
[0:26] <DF3D2> both of these microsds work in my phone
[0:26] <DF3D2> it's odd tht both adapters would be dead
[0:26] <fatalhalt> hi, sorry ive been out of touch, the h264 license does not have to be purchased anymore? i just tried omxplayer it does hw decode on most recent raspian distro
[0:27] <clever> wesm: what is managing fb0 when you change it?
[0:27] <clever> fatalhalt: h264 was always bundled with the device, its mpeg2 that was optional
[0:27] <Getterac7> ali1234: maybe readers that don't conform to the spec... All cards and card readers start communication at 3.3V.
[0:28] <fatalhalt> clever: thanks
[0:28] <wesm> clever: how do i check that? i'm not running x; just a tty
[0:28] <clever> wesm: then its the console in control, type something into the keyboard and it should redraw
[0:29] <wesm> hm, doesn't seem to work
[0:29] <wesm> the monitor comes back on with the correct settings
[0:30] <clever> dont know anything else to try then
[0:30] <wesm> thanks anyway :)

[0:32] <DF3D2> ShorTie, I guess it's the laptop port afterall
[0:32] <DF3D2> i popped the micro sd > full sd in to my wifes camera and it works lol
[0:32] <DF3D2> now im screwed to get my sd card ready for my pi 2 tomorow though
[0:32] * x1337807x (~x1337807x@207-170-205-178.static.twtelecom.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:33] <kapiteined> hi all, i am looking for a way to use mutiple PI's as a workstation. On Pi as X server, one Pi as firefox server, one Pi as a Thunderbird server etc. Has anyone atempted that before ?
[0:33] <ShorTie> oh, built in reader not a usb adapter type ??
[0:33] <DF3D2> yeah
[0:33] <DF3D2> built in broadcom sd card slot
[0:33] <DF3D2> wont work with these micro sd > adapters
[0:34] <ShorTie> sounds like the driver are not installed, what does device manager say about it ??
[0:34] <DF3D2> I reinstalled the drivers
[0:34] <DF3D2> says it's functioning correctly
[0:34] <abnormal> mount it?
[0:34] <DF3D2> i know for a fact ive used this port for microsd before
[0:35] <ShorTie> can't see 2 adapters being bad though
[0:35] <DF3D2> yeah me neither
[0:35] <DF3D2> im stumped
[0:36] <ShorTie> sure you got the right driver for the slot ??
[0:36] <ShorTie> off the cd/dvd that came with the laptop ??

[0:38] * gbaman (~gbaman@ has joined #raspberrypi
[0:38] <ShorTie> i've seen where only those drivers would work right, the 1's on the cd/dvd
[0:39] <DF3D2> got it off the website
[0:39] <DF3D2> it works with a normal SD card
[0:39] <DF3D2> but not the microsd adapter
[0:40] <abnormal> that sounds fishy to me.. they both should work regardless....
[0:40] * igordcard (~igordcard@ has joined #raspberrypi
[0:42] <DF3D2> abnormal, i know man
[0:42] <DF3D2> im clueless here I was surprised as hell when it didn't work
[0:43] * arrakian (~arrakian@gateway/tor-sasl/arrakian) Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[0:44] <abnormal> ok look in the adapter and see if any of the pins are bent or missing... and look at the micro sd card's contacts to see if any discrepencies show...
[0:44] <DF3D2> ive used 2 adapters and 2 cards and they work in my camera/phone
[0:45] <DF3D2> so something is up with that laptop port I guess
[0:45] <abnormal> must be, try them on another computer.
[0:45] <DF3D2> dont have another sd card reader :-|
[0:45] <DF3D2> lame and my pi2 comes tomorrow this sucks
[0:46] <abnormal> do you have another pi?
[0:46] <DF3D2> nah never had one before
[0:47] <abnormal> ahh.... well that helps
[0:47] * x1337807x (~x1337807x@207-170-205-178.static.twtelecom.net) Quit (Quit: My MacBook Pro has gone to sleep. ZZZzzz…)
[0:47] <abnormal> you have a Walmart nearby?
[0:48] <fatalhalt> for 2d X11 environment does raspian use generic framebuffer DDX driver or xf86-video-fbturbo? i'm trying to research what available there for smoother GUI experience without wayland
[0:48] <DF3D2> abnormal, yeah idk if they even have them
[0:48] <DF3D2> walmart has very little pc stuff
[0:48] <DF3D2> there is a bestbuy near me but they gouge prices hard
[0:48] <niston> DF3D2: have you tried gently pushing the SD card adapter upwards a little? maybe its a mechanical problem with these adapters and the particular slot?
[0:48] <DF3D2> so ill likely just amazon one I guess, really didn't want to spend more money on this project
[0:48] * mgottschlag (~quassel@reactos/tester/phoenix64) Quit (Ping timeout: 250 seconds)
[0:49] <DF3D2> niston, up as in towards the top of the laptop ?
[0:49] <abnormal> Walmart has them... go get one
[0:49] <niston> yup.
[0:49] <abnormal> just buy another SD card.
[0:50] <DF3D2> the sd cards work
[0:50] <DF3D2> lol
[0:51] <Getterac7> So RasPlex doesn't work with RasPi2 ... i'm crying inside a bit... :(

[0:51] * argakiig_lost is now known as argakiig
[0:52] <niston> DF3D2: I have one adapter which, to have it functioning on my workstation, must not be inserted fully.
[0:52] <DF3D2> the sd card port light, lights up also
[0:52] <DF3D2> niston, yeah that didn't help, it was so tight in there you cant really move it, except back out
[0:53] <ShorTie> go get a usb sdcard reader
[0:54] <DF3D2> I am gonna
[0:54] <DF3D2> checking prices now
[0:54] <DF3D2> might just do amazon 1 day shipping
[0:55] <DF3D2> only costs $4
[0:55] * igordcard (~igordcard@ Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[0:55] <ShorTie> i got mine from newegg with a sdcard for like a buck more

[0:55] <DF3D2> is that any good?
[0:56] <DF3D2> they have that at my local store
[0:57] <ShorTie> l@@ks like it might work till you get a more economical 1, then take it back, lol.
[0:57] <DF3D2> aha
[0:57] * ShorTie bad
[0:57] <DF3D2> $15 isnt economical ?

[1:01] <DF3D2> abnormal, I have 32gb cards already

[1:02] <abnormal> so? you only need 8gb for crying out loud... sheesh
[1:02] <ShorTie> for a quick download, i'd still give that sdformatter a quick try
[1:02] <ShorTie> not bad to have it anyways
[1:02] <DF3D2> abnormal, I already have the 32g cards
[1:03] <DF3D2> amazon sent me a box with like 20 of them by accident once

[1:03] <DF3D2> ordering that with 1 day shipping
[1:03] <abnormal> you lucky dog!!!
[1:03] <wesm> clever: if you're curious, i was able to get the fbcon to start outputting to the screen again by toggling /sys/class/vtconsole/vtcon1/bind
[1:03] <DF3D2> I like the native microsd idea
[1:03] <DF3D2> screw adapters
[1:03] <ShorTie> gotta becarefull it's not formatted exfat, that might be the problem
[1:03] <DF3D2> O_O
[1:04] <DF3D2> it might be isnt that what android does!?
[1:04] <DF3D2> nah the other one is definitely fat32, for my sandisk clip zip flac player
[1:04] <DF3D2> and that one doesnt work either
[1:04] <ShorTie> not sure, but pi has to be fat, exfat doesn't work
[1:04] <ryankara1on> so is there any regular SD card socket on the RPi2?
[1:04] <DF3D2> yeah they should work in that laptop though and they dont
[1:05] <abnormal> no, the B-2 has micro SD
[1:05] <ryankara1on> ah, bummer.
[1:05] <e^ipi> got a soldering iron?
[1:05] <ryankara1on> pretty nice though that rpi finally made a decent upgrade with RAM and CPU
[1:05] <e^ipi> easy fix
[1:06] <ryankara1on> e^ipi: i really need to practice soldering
[1:06] <ryankara1on> i am really janky
[1:06] <abnormal> look at the rpi site and make sure it is a micro SD
[1:06] <ryankara1on> i burn stuffs

[1:47] * chris_99 (~chris_99@unaffiliated/chris-99/x-3062929) Quit (Quit: Ex-Chat)
[1:47] <willmore> So there's no generic i2s "map 16 bit LR samples in i2s frames thus and so" kind of driver?
[1:47] <willmore> This is for a pi, of course.
[1:47] <niston> maybe you can adapt an existing driver
[1:47] <willmore> okay.
[1:47] <niston> ie look at the PiDAC or HiFiBerry one
[1:48] <willmore> I've seen the various audio daughtercards around. Does each of them use a different driver?
[1:48] <niston> they come with raspbian
[1:48] <niston> yep
[1:48] <willmore> Ahh, so they do. Okay.
[1:48] <willmore> Thanks.

[1:49] <niston> this may provide additional info: https://www.sparkfun.com/datasheets/BreakoutBoards/I2SBUS.pdf
[1:50] <niston> DACs usually take input in the form of "left aligned", "right aligned" (IIRC the names) or "i2s".. the DAC datasheet should give info on that.
[1:50] <willmore> niston, I'll dig up the datasheets right after I dig up the chips. They're in the basement--somewhere.
[1:51] <willmore> I found most of the rest of my old junk, they can't be far. Assuming the survived the move.
[1:52] <benighted> djazz, which country you in?
[1:52] <willmore> I got some 192x24 ADC and DAC chips for a software defined radio project about a decade back, but it fell through. But I still have the samples. :)

[1:55] <niston> slightly inferioer to 16/44.1 ???
[1:55] <willmore> For ADC, there are justifications for more bits, but not for faster sampling.
[1:55] <niston> most studio audio gear uses 192/24 by default though
[1:56] <willmore> Yeah, and it's run by someone who didn't pass basic algebra. :)

[1:57] <willmore> IMHO, his arguement is strong.
[1:57] <niston> Imma save the link for later reading
[1:57] <niston> but you know when it comes to audio
[1:57] <niston> things get esotheric pretty quick
[1:57] <willmore> Yeah, more expensive must be better.
[1:57] <niston> some would say any digital is crap
[1:57] <niston> and the real only truth is vynil
[1:58] <niston> argument being that digital audio misses an infinite amount of information that's present in the analogue recording.
[1:58] <willmore> I knew a guy in college who had his heard set on this $2K (USD) CD player. He was using the 'costs more, must be better' logic. It was a DJ CD player. All that extra cost was for the jog/shuttle, beat matching, etc. DJ stuff in it.
[1:59] <willmore> Add information theory to the list of things they don't understand, then. ;)
[1:59] <niston> hmm... some really expensive CD players ("the best") consist of seperate drive/transport and a dac
[1:59] <niston> and costs like 120k
[1:59] <willmore> This was '92
[1:59] <willmore> They all sucked.
[1:59] <niston> hehe audiophiles :)
[2:00] <willmore> $120K? Why? You can haz all the crazy....
[2:00] <niston> take a bunch of lamp cord, wrap it in cellophane and fiberglass, then sell it as "audiophile high definition speaker cable"
[2:00] <niston> for $599 a meter
[2:00] <willmore> Owww, is it low oxygen copper?
[2:00] <niston> nah. really just regular lamp cord.
[2:01] <niston> its a popular theme on #electronics
[2:01] <willmore> We can blame that one on NASA. They spec it for space use because *space*, not because of 'tighter base and more transparent highs'.
[2:01] <niston> hehehe
[2:01] <willmore> Like the 'directional ethernet cables'?
[2:02] <willmore> It's one of those Amazon joke review legends. $4K or so for a silly ethernet cable for use with 'high end' A/V.

[2:08] <ShorTie> use to have 1 of those hotdog cookers
[2:08] <niston> I think that sampling rate/bit depth during playback should ideally be the same as during recording
[2:09] <niston> otherwise resampling will kick in
[2:09] <ShorTie> it electry fried the dogs right across the 110 line

[2:46] <exobuzz> well, usually it's the uk that get punished.. when something is $35 (like odroid c1), which translates to £34 and then shipping on top :/
[2:46] <exobuzz> or hd prices
[2:46] <exobuzz> or apple hardware
[2:47] <willmore> benighted, that's why I'm paitiently waiting for free shipping from newegg. :)
[2:47] <benighted> willmore, they are listing it?
[2:47] <willmore> benighted, probably not, that's why I'm being patient. :)
[2:47] <willmore> I'll get one this summer, probably.
[2:48] <willmore> The C1 shipping was only $9 when I looked. That's not bad. It's from China and will take a month, probably.
[2:48] <benighted> considering I have a few B+'s I bought last year like a sucker... probably won't pick one of these up. Going for a Banana Pi M2 with free shipping and DDR3

[2:49] <willmore> I think I need to pull the trigger on that C1.
[2:49] <willmore> benighted, use some of that mad Google money.

[3:40] <Mahjongg> I know this is why I use it, but the rpi is upstairs :)
[3:41] <Mahjongg> usb-storage did not help

[3:46] <ozzzy> nope.... regular old windows looking windows
[3:46] <niston> that's not what shiftplusone said :P
[3:46] <skyroveRR> Mahjongg: try differentiating between the lsmod output of your pi and the lsmod output of your laptop.
[3:46] * ozzzy wonders what a 'command line' windows would look like....
[3:47] <niston> similar to windows server core
[3:47] <skyroveRR> Mahjongg: you'll know the difference :)
[3:47] <Mahjongg> skyroveRR, just a sec
[3:47] <niston> no GUI
[3:47] <niston> but windows with no GUI? why not just use Linux? oO

[3:48] <ozzzy> according to the MS guys I talk to differ
[3:48] <Mahjongg> laptop lsmod | grep usb returns usb_storage 49198 1 used by ums_cypress and btusb
[3:48] <Mahjongg> I guess that is related to bluetooth

[5:02] <[Saint]> Honestly, IMO, the only reason to get a model A is if you need to cram it in a tiny height profile.
[5:02] <[Saint]> May as well spend the money and get the B so it easily adapts to other projects.
[5:03] <Mr_Sheesh> I'm trying to keep power usage lowish. I already have 2 receiver modules'

[5:24] <Encapsulation> [Saint], That's what I was wondering. And also if there were any other compelling reasons to go for the pi2 vs the pi1
[5:24] <[Saint]> If you're not going to be utilizing what the raspi offers, you're just going to be not using what the raspi 2 offers by a factor of at least 2~6. ;)
[5:24] <Encapsulation> Some people were saying it might actually be safer to stick with pi1 for a bit while pi2 is tested. I'm not sure if there is truth to that or not

[5:26] <Encapsulation> that's a good point

[6:40] <plugwash> niston, at least you have a tech support guy to call whereas if you designed the board yourself you have to work out why it's not working yourself
[6:40] <plasmasnake> i have mine running weechat so i just SSH into it from wherever i am
[6:40] <niston> of course, after wasting more than one hour on said support call, it turns out that they are unable to even understand the problem.
[6:41] <kevireilly_> plasmasnake: mostly lights presently, yeah. I’m using a z-wave controller and then also have an app attached with ibeacon support
[6:41] * r3dsm0k3 (~r3dsm0k3@ has joined #raspberrypi
[6:41] <plugwash> and hope to heck that it's something you can fix without having to get a new version of the board made
[6:42] <niston> plugwash: not really. the "fix" was to upgrade to an even more expensive version of their product.
[6:42] <plasmasnake> kevireilly_: ah, nice.. the z-wave stuff doesn't seem expensive either
[6:42] <niston> and all tech support did was waste hours on dismantling and rebuilding your stack over and over
[6:42] <niston> wihtout any result at all
[6:43] <kevireilly_> plasmasnake: it’s not too shabby. The controller is about the same price as most z-wave light switches and outlets. Can get a fair amount of coverage for a couple hundo
[6:44] <kevireilly_> depending on what you want to control ofcos, but z-wave also has a shit load of various devices for most things you can think of.. front door lock is on my list ;)
[6:45] <niston> (the company im referring to is known for their purple boxes)
[6:45] <[Saint]> a pi as a desktop "pc" sounds so painful its not even funny.
[6:46] <[Saint]> a second-hand android handset is going to blow it out of the water.
[6:46] <plasmasnake> [Saint]: lol yeah, but maybe not as much with the new one
[6:46] <niston> that fool had me messing with stacking and what not when it was a licensing problem. would you believe it?
[6:46] <kevireilly_> rpi2 should be a big step, doesn’t it specifically mention being able to run ubuntu and windows 10 or something?
[6:46] <plasmasnake> and kevireilly_ i think it'll be a while before i trust my front door lock to the internet :)

[6:46] <[Saint]> kevireilly_: the Snappy ubuntu core (quite different) and Windows 10 when it becomes a thing.
[6:46] <plasmasnake> and yeah @ ubuntu and windows 10 support.. but i'm guessing it'll get a pared down version of windows 10
[6:46] <kevireilly_> plasmasnake: lol fair enough indeed. The security aspect of that isn’t something to mess around with :)
[6:47] <[Saint]> though, performance has yet to be seen.
[6:47] <plasmasnake> and the ubuntu version will be ubuntu core, which is also a pared down version
[6:47] <[Saint]> at the end of the day, it still has the same limitations on throughput.
[6:47] <kevireilly_> ah
[6:47] <[Saint]> throwing more cores at it doesn't help that
[6:47] <[Saint]> or more RAM.

[6:55] <abnormal> I see............ so no matter which model I get, it's all the same...

[6:56] <plasmasnake> but don't forget it's still $35
[6:56] <niston> yup
[6:57] <uriah> :<
[6:57] <uriah> yeah, the usb thing annoys
[6:57] <uriah> can't get high speed usb drive scp transfers to another machine
[6:57] <abnormal> well... we wait long enuf, maybe a model C with quintuple core at 2.4GHz and 18 Gb mem... lol
[6:58] <niston> there's still faint hopes for the CSI/DSI thing
[6:58] <niston> albeit very VERY faint
[6:58] <uriah> well it should still need to have a better usb infrastructure
[6:58] <uriah> i don't think the processing power is the issue here
[6:58] <niston> uriah: USB 3.0 would have been nice
[6:58] <uriah> indeed
[6:58] <niston> or even an SGMII interface
[6:58] <uriah> but i mean... with that kind of budget, what can we expect?
[6:59] <uriah> as well as that size board, perhaps
[6:59] * Moshin (~bangboom@udp000088uds.hawaiiantel.net) Quit (Quit: My MacBook Pro has gone to sleep. ZZZzzz…)
[6:59] <uriah> anyway, it's enough to be able to stream videos from a usb hard drive, so it's ok
[7:00] <niston> whatever. its cheap and the power requirements are almost zilch.
[7:00] <uriah> indeed
[7:01] <uriah> and the board size is key
[7:01] <uriah> i wouldn't want the pi to be any bigger
[7:01] <niston> plus it has a great community and useful software support
[7:01] <uriah> true
[7:01] <uriah> now if only broadcom didn't cause the bootloader to be a blob
[7:02] <uriah> broadcom are notorious for their failures at open-sourcing their hardware interfaces

[7:03] <niston> what strikes me as odd at times is that their chips are everywhere. yet you can't buy them anywhere.
[7:04] <niston> (with a few notable exceptions)

[7:16] <[Saint]> It'd be really nice to see a version with an eMMC.
[7:16] <[Saint]> ...maybe next time.
[7:16] <plugwash> if by "layout of the board" you mean PCB layout it was a massive change
[7:17] <uriah> heh
[7:17] <plugwash> memory moved from PoP to the bottom, that means a whole load of new criticial signals

[7:18] <[Saint]> No no, sorry, connectors and such. I'm aware things changed quite a bit.
[7:19] <[Saint]> I have a feeling that it wouldn't have been quite so easy, or even have happened at all, if it involved a truly radical change to the form factor and layout.
[7:20] <[Saint]> (not that I'm in any way saying that it was 'easy')
[7:20] <[Saint]> What I'm essentially saying is that I sincerely doubt anyone felt like starting from scratch.
[7:21] <uriah> but what if they had to in order to reach such a similar form factor? :P
[7:21] <uriah> wait, does that make sense?
[7:21] <plugwash> honestly I think the main reason we don't have gige or multiple independent USBs is that they didn't have enough chip-designer time available
[7:21] <uriah> i guess they could have erased everything except where the connectors are
[7:22] <plugwash> the PCB design while a fair bit of work is not a massive deal now they have a full time PCB designer
[7:22] <plugwash> (unlike when they did the model B and pete had to design it on his spare time)
[7:23] <uriah> hmm... that must have taken a while
[7:24] <[Saint]> If I didn't already have a fleet of C1s, I might be more interested, but seeing as I use them primarily for networking applications, its likely not an upgrade I would have made anyway.
[7:25] <plugwash> mmm, for networking applications the odriod C1 is almost certainly better than the raspberry pi 2
[7:25] <[Saint]> The C1 upgrade with eMMC modules was approximately twice as expensive (it'd be a lot more if I didn't buy in bulk and save on shipping), but for my clients, it was worth it.
[7:26] <[Saint]> All of a sudden they can actually make use of the bandwidth I can throw at them.
[7:26] <[Saint]> And the local highschool profited to the tune of two dozen model Bs.
[7:27] <[Saint]> Though, honestly, although appreciative, I suspect they have no idea what they are or what to do with them.

[10:17] <zlimvos> if i understand well dmesg has to do with the hardware/driver etc. all this is fine, i can scan networks etc. the question is if par example 'authentication failure' is somewhere logged
[10:17] <sundhaug92> Darkwell: It's not OTG, what you could do is use a networking cable without a switch or hub in between and a USB-NIC/WNIC to external
[10:18] <Darkwell> yeah that would work...

[10:23] <[Saint]> secure and USB don't often get used in the same sentence.
[10:24] <Darkwell> hehe having swedish keyboards and hooking up on to the console for the first time since I boght the rpis ... figured that when doing the wipeut of x11 it did remove support for the console-setup to so the keymap for swedish keyboard diddnt work .. but apt-get install cnsole-setup remedied it without extra work ;)
[10:24] <Darkwell> [Saint], im aware of that, as long as noone has physical access its better than say wifi
[10:25] <[Saint]> changing the locale in rpi-config would have worked too, I imagine.
[10:25] <Darkwell> i did change the locale and it didnt do then triclk i wanted.. having english menus and sxwedish input
[10:26] <[Saint]> ahhh.
[10:26] * Red_Onyx (~rpcarnell@ Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[10:26] <Darkwell> it seems raspbian is aimed towards x in the setting in raspi-config
[10:26] <ShorTie> dpkg-reconfigure keyboard-configuration
[10:26] <Darkwell> doesnt work.. since i wiped all x related stuff
[10:27] <skyroveRR> sundhaug92: check out usbnet.
[10:27] <ShorTie> don't need X for that to work
[10:27] <skyroveRR> ShorTie: Networking over USB.
[10:27] <skyroveRR> * sundhaug92
[10:27] <[Saint]> for the whole "connecting two rpi" thing, why net use network direct connection?
[10:27] <Darkwell> simplest solution was apt-get install console-setup after doing the raspi-config and setting locale to en-uk and swedish keyboard on the other

[10:27] <ShorTie> keyboard setup is in raspi-config too....
[10:28] <[Saint]> Or do they need netowrking via eth, on two separate networks, as well as connection to each other?
[10:28] <skyroveRR> Yeah, that one too. Maybe he simply doesn't want a networking cable.
[10:28] <[Saint]> but, then...USB cable?
[10:28] <[Saint]> Hell, a cable's a cable.
[10:28] <Darkwell> yes its in raspi config... but im saying that when wiping X it did remove console-setup
[10:28] <skyroveRR> Yeah, it's odd, but it is possible.
[10:29] <Darkwell> let me check what I didi when clreatig the "headless"
[10:29] <[Saint]> anyhoo - yeah, Darkwell, we need a little more info, well...not need, but would like.
[10:29] <[Saint]> WHy not just connect the two pis over LAN?
[10:29] <Darkwell> because the lan is designed to have direct internet access
[10:30] <[Saint]> VPN?
[10:31] <[Saint]> USB's not happening without some fairly extensive jiggery-pokery.

[10:32] <[Saint]> here's what I did to create a headless environment:
[10:32] <[Saint]> Install Arch
[10:33] <Darkwell> ther eare more lines there
[10:33] <Darkwell> i had raspbian and did that to remov e
[10:33] <[Saint]> Alternatively, there's great many vastly reduced debian images out there.
[10:33] <Darkwell> then dd to disk and then dd to each sd card to be a rpi headless machine
[10:33] <[Saint]> Darkwell: you'd probable want to look at https://github.com/debian-pi/raspbian-ua-netinst
[10:34] <Darkwell> ok
[10:34] <[Saint]> No messing around removing things.
[10:34] <Darkwell> well now its already done and backed up through dd =)
[10:34] <[Saint]> Its an unattended install of a minimal raspbian base system.
[10:34] <Gadgetoid_> Here comes the tech support avalanche from Pi 2 users, *hides*
[10:34] <Darkwell> well using seral comm is insteresting then I could use gpio
[10:35] <[Saint]> The other alternative is Arch linux
[10:35] <ShorTie> instead of try to like unistall X and stuff, it might be better to just build your own install with raspbian-ui-netinstall
[10:35] <Darkwell> i got slice of radio on 2 and that serial com over rf
[10:35] <[Saint]> ShorTie: late to the game. ;)
[10:36] <Darkwell> ah nice ... netinstall on raspbian that Ilike
[10:36] <ShorTie> i see, that is what i get gor being a 1 button typer, lol.
[10:36] <ShorTie> gor/for
[10:37] <Darkwell> hmm
[10:37] <Gadgetoid_> Any Python spidev users around? I've just pushed 3.0 to pip
[10:40] <Darkwell> ethernet over usb may be simpler if you want to pipe data from serveral machines to one destination.. not sure how to do that with gpio without say spi protocol
[10:40] <azizLIGHT> can i run pfsense on pi2

[14:50] <shiftplusone> Hmm... a common request I see is USB3.0 and gbit ethernet, which I find a bit odd.
[14:51] <niston> why?
[14:51] <Armand> Gb, yes.. USB3? Meh.
[14:51] <shiftplusone> I know I'm probably not representative of the average person, but my PC isn't gbit (and is very new) yet to own a device that benefits from USB3.0. I don't feel like I'm missing out on anything without those things.

[14:52] * mgottschlag (~quassel@reactos/tester/phoenix64) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[14:52] <niston> since USB is the only bus on the SoC, upping its performance would seem beneficiary to me
[14:53] <shiftplusone> Yes, so would a huge list of other things, but it doesn't seem to be as essential as some people make it out to be.
[14:53] <niston> especially since you could then link an USB 3.0 GigE chip to it
[14:53] * mgottschlag (~quassel@reactos/tester/phoenix64) has joined #raspberrypi
[14:53] <niston> but yeah.. I don't have any USB 3.0 gear either on my desktop
[14:53] <niston> yet still, a PC without GigE? In 2015?
[14:53] <ali1234> they only want USB3 so they can have gigabit
[14:54] <ali1234> and yeah gigabit is standard on new PCs since about 5 years ago
[14:54] <niston> or a USB3.0-to-SATA
[14:54] <niston> bridge thingy chip
[14:54] <ali1234> yeah that too

[14:55] * denete (~denete@ has joined #raspberrypi
[14:55] <ali1234> what they really want is USB2 with multiple HCDs
[14:55] <Armand> I have Gb internet at work, so it would be massively useful to me. :)
[14:55] <ali1234> because sharing one USB3 port between devices is worse than one USB2 port per device
[14:56] * ech0s7 (~ech0s7@93-42-6-31.ip84.fastwebnet.it) Quit (Quit: This computer has gone to sleep)
[14:56] <niston> ali1234: whats the rationale behind that?
[14:56] <shiftplusone> Would sharing a USB3.0 port necessarily increase overall bandwidth to USB2.0 devices? I know logically it should, but... does it work that way?
[14:56] <ali1234> USB tends to end up running as fast as the slowest device
[14:57] <ali1234> put a mouse and a hard drive on a USB3 port... it will go slow
[14:57] <ali1234> shiftplusone: it would help a bit but having a dedicated port per device would be better
[14:58] <shiftplusone> that's my thinking to, but I can't really justify it without understanding USB on a much lower level than I currently do.
[14:58] <exobuzz> " but my PC isn't gbit (and is very new)" - they are still selling motherboards with 100mbit ethernet ? who would buy that.
[14:58] <Armand> Not really caring much about the USB, but a dedicated LAN controller would be nice.
[14:59] <exobuzz> i would appreciate gigabit for sure..
[14:59] <Dragonkeeper> not everyone needs 1 gb eth in home enviroment . most routerspeople have at home only traffic 150mb on netwrok anyway
[15:00] <Armand> Moot point.
[15:00] <exobuzz> i only have 100mbit (downstream) from internet, but my lan is gigabit mostly.. i dont want to copy files from one room to another at 100mbit speeds
[15:00] <exobuzz> would take forever
[15:00] <ali1234> shiftplusone: actually if you ONLY connected USB2 devices... using a USB3 device would not help
[15:00] <ali1234> *port
[15:01] <Armand> You know, the first time I downloaded a file on Gb.. I laughed.
[15:01] <Dragonkeeper> if the router only does 150mb then logicly having a 1gb nic card wouldnt matter
[15:01] <Armand> Got 110MB/s from a Goscomb server. :D
[15:01] <exobuzz> Dragonkeeper, if you have one computer
[15:01] <shiftplusone> exobuzz, I've already acknowledged that it probably is gbit, but I don't use it in a way that makes a difference.
[15:01] <exobuzz> Dragonkeeper, if you have more than one computer, gigabit is useful. you know. copying files. backing up to nas etc
[15:01] <Armand> Dragonkeeper: I've NEVER seen a 150Mb/s wired LAN.
[15:01] <exobuzz> shiftplusone, aah ok. i missed that
[15:02] <Dragonkeeper> no i had 3 computers sharing files with 1gb nics and all connected to a router with a 150mb capacity ... do you see the logic ? lol
[15:02] <exobuzz> I have all my main storage under the stairs.. it would be a pain without gigabit. i would actually like faster than gigabit sometimes (when copying large amounts of data)
[15:02] * RichiH (~richih@freenode/staff/richih) has left #raspberrypi
[15:02] <ali1234> i find sata to be too slow personally
[15:03] <exobuzz> Dragonkeeper, well. considering you can pick up gigabit switch for £20 or less, you are making your own problems :)
[15:03] <Armand> Dragonkeeper: Again, never seen 150Mb/s LAN... Do you mean the WAN speed ?
[15:03] <exobuzz> ali1234, sata3 with ssd also ?
[15:04] <niston> 150mbps sounds like 802.11n lite
[15:04] <skyroveRR> Dragonkeeper: 150Mb/s is the WIRELESS speed of most common consumer routers, not WIRED speed. They communicate at 100Mb/s only.
[15:04] <skyroveRR> Via ethernet.
[15:05] <Armand> ^
[15:05] <Dragonkeeper> ok maybe im not fully awake but still 100mb to 1gb .. bottle necks
[15:05] <ali1234> again, gigabit is standard on all new routers for about 5 years
[15:06] <[Saint]> unless you're using your nasty telco-supplied crud.
[15:06] <exobuzz> yeh.. even my crap vm not very super superhub has gigabit.
[15:06] <[Saint]> which I imagine many are.
[15:06] <ali1234> yeah in the UK even the free stuff is gigabit now

[15:09] <ali1234> it's only locked down if you use talktalk or bt
[15:09] <exobuzz> Dragonkeeper, look up openwrt. can get an affordable router, and have a nice os for it

[15:09] <exobuzz> I have a tp-link wdr4300 with openwrt
[15:09] <Squarepy> shiftplusone, are these the modem-router combinations?
[15:09] <shiftplusone> yeah
[15:09] <ali1234> any decent ISP will tell you the password and then you can bin their router and use your own
[15:10] <ali1234> or just get "wires only" service
[15:10] <[Saint]> I'm of the opinion that a modem and a router have little business being together.
[15:10] <exobuzz> vm router is not worth using as a router
[15:10] <exobuzz> awful
[15:10] <shiftplusone> Yeah, but living in a shared house, I don't want to pay for it all myself or convince others to pay for things they don't care about.
[15:10] <exobuzz> modem mode and openwrt all the way shiftplusone like you
[15:10] <[Saint]> shiftplusone: true
[15:10] <Squarepy> shiftplusone, simplest is a wired bridge with your own browser, disable wlan on the isp router
[15:10] <Squarepy> browser/router*
[15:10] <ali1234> wires only is usually cheaper
[15:11] <Squarepy> :)
[15:11] <ali1234> pretty much anything is cheaper than BT, and certainly much better service

[15:15] <exobuzz> :)
[15:15] <ali1234> niston: in an extreme example, if oyu put an old USB 1.1 webcam on a USB 3 port, it will use up all the bandwidth communicating at 10mbit or whatever
[15:15] <[Saint]> The fact of the matter is, you're probably not that important.
[15:16] <[Saint]> No one wants to read through your logs.
[15:16] <Dragonkeeper> yeah logs are interesting ..especially if they are turned off
[15:16] <ali1234> if it is communicating 90% of the time say, then a USB3 device on the same port can only use 10% of USB3 bandwidth
[15:16] <ali1234> so in this example, two USB2 ports peform better than one USB3
[15:17] <niston> hmm
[15:17] <niston> "USB 3 Architecture: USB 3 uses a dual-bus system that allows USB 3 traffic and USB 2 traffic to operate over the cabling simultaneously. This means that unlike earlier versions of USB, which operated at the top speed of the slowest device connected, USB 3 can zip along even when a USB 2 device is connected."
[15:17] <ali1234> although maybenot because 10% of USB3 is still more than USB2
[15:17] <Bilby> *yawn* morning
[15:17] <ali1234> hmm, okay, didn't know that
[15:18] <ali1234> so a USB3 port is really two ports?
[15:18] <niston> also: "The TUSB8040A1 provides simultaneous SuperSpeed USB and high-speed or full-speed connections on the upstream port" [...]
[15:18] <ali1234> so it is physically two different busses
[15:18] <niston> yup there's additional connections on an USB 3.0 cable
[15:19] <ali1234> that's handy
[15:20] <ali1234> at any rate, two USB2 roots would probably be more useful on the pi than one USB3 root
[15:20] <Bilby> isn't it two rows of 4 pins and deeper? so it's physically backwards compatible with USB 2
[15:21] <ali1234> just cos USB3 devices still aren't that common
[15:21] <ali1234> it's pointless anyway, we're not going to get it :)
[15:21] <shiftplusone> truth
[15:22] <eatyourguitar> I think the gigabit ethernet port is very important for cluster computing
[15:22] <ali1234> why would you cluster a slow ARM CPU?
[15:22] <eatyourguitar> for clusters that need RAM bandwidth
[15:22] <shiftplusone> I don't think a pi is important for cluster computing though.
[15:22] <niston> I think the idea has some merit
[15:23] <niston> use a bunch of clustered low-power systems as network servers
[15:23] <eatyourguitar> I think there will be lots of $20 pi's on ebay within a year

[15:24] <eatyourguitar> the only thing holding cluster computing back on any architechure is the software behind it and the market demand for cheap clusters

[15:24] <niston> ali1234: I beg to differ. not every cluster is for high performance computing.
[15:24] <ali1234> except with 10x the power usage
[15:25] <eatyourguitar> there were a lot of cellBE clusters made from PS3 with gigabit ethernet
[15:25] <Bilby> I think anyone who is building ARM clusters is just going to spec something made for it
[15:25] <eatyourguitar> only 256mb RAM! lol wut
[15:25] <eatyourguitar> the military was buying them up costing sony a lot of money
[15:26] <eatyourguitar> the sony business model was to recoup losses on consoles through game sales
[15:27] <niston> wasnt PS3 exports to some countries banned exactly for that reason?
[15:27] <niston> I think I remember something
[15:27] <eatyourguitar> so it was financial and technical success for one and disaster for another
[15:28] <niston> there was concerns about commie countries building supercomputers for nuclear research out of PS3's or something
[15:28] <eatyourguitar> <niston> ali1234: mainly due to lack of real high speed interfacing though
[15:28] <eatyourguitar> this is why gigabit ethernet is important

[15:28] <eatyourguitar> 32 new pi's is 32gb ram
[15:28] <ali1234> if you want high speed interfacing, get the compute module and put it in external memory mode, then wire a load of them up to shared memory

[15:32] <shiftplusone> oh, right.
[15:32] * gbaman_ (~gbaman@ has joined #raspberrypi
[15:33] <ali1234> with a bit of glue logic you should be able to wire up a lot of compute modules to a lot of shared memory

[15:33] <ali1234> making a very high performance cluster
[15:33] <niston> it's still undocumented though?

[15:49] <[Saint]> ozzzy: that would imply implicit support from the chipset vendor.
[15:49] <[Saint]> glwt.
[15:49] <Dragonkeeper> why use android without telephony over raspbian ..
[15:49] <ozzzy> yeah... but as there's nothing off-the-wall about pi hardware that shouldn't be much of an issue

[15:50] <ozzzy> especially android... which is just linux with a pretty face
[15:50] <[Saint]> I...no.
[15:50] <[Saint]> Just, no.
[15:50] <ozzzy> hey... thats the good thing about choice.... don't like it, don't do it

[15:52] <[Saint]> Android is _extremely_ far removed from "just linux with a pretty face". As someone that spends a decent portion of time in active Android development, that's almost offensive. :)
[15:52] <Dragonkeeper> android sucks
[15:52] <Dragonkeeper> lolz
[15:52] <ozzzy> whether you like it or not... under android lies a linux kernel

[15:55] <Bilby> I think android has/will have a place in the media player / small-thing-with-a-ui marketplace
[15:56] <ozzzy> Bilby, yep
[15:56] <[Saint]> Have you missed the past 4 years Bilby? :p
[15:56] <Bilby> for instance, it was much easier to flash a lightweight android image on my old smartphone and plug it into my stereo, compared to the gyrations I was going through to get decent sound out of my pi :P
[15:56] <Bilby> hah
[15:56] <Bilby> with two year smartphone upgrade cycles... yes?
[15:56] <[Saint]> there's no 'will", and, it has _dominated_ that market.
[15:56] * ozzzy doesn't have a smart phone
[15:57] <ali1234> the main difference between android and your typical desktop environment is that android is written to work with whatever drivers the chipset manufacturers poop out, where as the traditional desktops require specific drivers for x11
[15:57] * ozzzy 's phone is really dumb... and is connected to the wall with a wire
[15:57] <Dragonkeeper> java based .. enough said
[15:57] <Bilby> ozzzy h'aint nothin' wrong with that, if it fits your needs
[15:57] <Bilby> there are times i want to go back to that :P
[15:58] <[Saint]> Dragonkeeper: I assume you have a strong dislike for pretty much the entire Internet then, too, huh?
[15:58] <Bilby> There's a pretty cool touchscreen intefrace board for the pi that sparkfun has, i was watching a video on it this morning. only problem is it's $175 and you have to pre-program everything that displays on it
[15:58] <[Saint]> I mean, if we're hating on Java and all...
[15:58] <Dragonkeeper> the internet runs on linux not java
[15:59] <[Saint]> Please tell me you're trolling.
[15:59] <ali1234> seriously tho, java really is bad
[15:59] <Bilby> java is both democratic and symbolically democracy
[15:59] <shiftplusone> hmm... I'm a bit conflicted here. On one hand, I want to see where this goes. On the other hand it feels like I should put an end to this. =P
[15:59] <Dragonkeeper> how was that a trolling statement
[16:00] <Bilby> in that its advantage is that it will 'run on anything', and that it's the worst thing out there, except for everything else.
[16:00] <[Saint]> I'm going to insult someone really badly if I adress some of the stupid that's been brought up in the past few minutes.
[16:00] <[Saint]> So, I'll politely decline.

[16:10] <[Saint]> I spend time having to.
[16:10] <Bilby> wait, are you saying that desktop sales have never been overcome by laptop / mobile sales, or that desktop sales have never been relevent?
[16:11] <ali1234> the weird thing about electronics sales is that it's much easier to sell people a new phone because it's on a contract
[16:11] <ali1234> so people "buy" a new phone every 24 months
[16:11] <Dragonkeeper> i fail to see the topic here
[16:11] <ali1234> they buy a new PC/tablet/laptop when the old one breaks, and they always have
[16:11] <[Saint]> Bilby: I'm not saying either. What I am saying, is that its quite clear, that the populous as a whole still has a very firmly set market for desktop PCs.
[16:12] <ali1234> right, PC market hasn't changed, phone market just grew

[16:36] <DF3D2> so I just got my pi2 and made a micro sd card, the only output that shows on my monitor is a screen with like a color gradiant on it ?
[16:36] <DF3D2> this is connected via hdmi
[16:37] <shiftplusone> kernel loading trouble.
[16:38] <DF3D2> http://openelec.tv/get-openelec
[16:38] <shiftplusone> how did you 'make' the card?
[16:38] <DF3D2> I used openelec 5.01 disk image
[16:38] <DF3D2> shiftplusone, win32 disk imager on windows
[16:38] <shiftplusone> the pi 2 one or pi 1 one?
[16:38] <DF3D2> pi2
[16:38] <shiftplusone> what's the filename?
[16:38] <DF3D2> http://releases.openelec.tv/OpenELEC-RPi.arm-5.0.1.img.gz
[16:38] <DF3D2> i extracted the .img file

[16:45] * Elek101 (~textual@diagenode.socext.ulg.ac.be) has joined #raspberrypi
[16:45] <shiftplusone> There is an argument to be made for heatsinks on a pi2. But asking if a bit of metal is compatible is a bit strange.
[16:45] <niston> anyway
[16:45] <niston> off to skewl
[16:45] <niston> l8rs :)
[16:46] <ShorTie> they may thought they had to be plastic
[16:46] <ozzzy> shiftplusone, the temp my Pi runs at is the same with/without the heat sinks

[16:48] <shiftplusone> yes, at best there's a few degrees difference. But that's mostly the tiny ones people buy and stick into cases where there's no airflow. If you have a decent heatsink and a little bit of airflow, it should help.

[16:54] <DF3D2> just slapped openelec on the pi2, 1080p video seems to work okay kodi menu is choppy when it's playing but ive got an android phone I can use as a remote anyway
[16:54] <DF3D2> audio passthrough works it seems
[16:55] <DF3D2> it has some color gradiant box in the top right of the video though not understanding why
[16:55] <DF3D2> keeps coming and going
[16:55] <shiftplusone> DF3D2, your power supply isn't up to scratch
[16:55] <shiftplusone> or the cable it's connected through is bad.
[16:56] <DF3D2> shiftplusone, ahh okay thank you! im just powering it with a usb port of another pc now

[17:01] <NGC3982> ..Yet?
[17:01] <DF3D2> NGC3982, it should be quad core compliant
[17:01] <DF3D2> i downloaded the rpi2 version of openelec

[18:52] <doomlord_1> can anyone recomend a place to download raspbian (for rpi2).. the 'official' place seems down ?
[18:52] <doomlord_1> i've so
[18:53] <doomlord_1> i've downloaded *something*, shoved it on the card, booted, and it does something but ends with kernel panic ('unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(..)
[18:53] <doomlord_1> could i have the wrong image, or did i make a mistake setting it up
[18:53] <benighted> doomlord_1, what kind of SD card and have you used it in Pi before?
[18:54] <doomlord_1> 32mb 100mb/sec microsd bought today
[18:54] <benighted> Which http://elinux.org/RPi_SD_cards

[18:57] <doomlord_1> i read 'a problem with class 10 hihgh speed cards, this has been fixed' ... its' a 100mb/sec card; and its' an rpi2 .. i hope thats ok..
[18:57] <clever> doomlord_1: 32mb sounds a bit too small to use for a pi
[18:57] <doomlord_1> 32gb sorry
[18:57] <doomlord_1> typo
[18:57] <doomlord_1> oh there is one detail.. when I ran 'dd' .. i left it for about 15mins.. and 'ctrl-C'd' it.
[18:58] <benighted> doomlord_1, tjat cpi;d dp ot
[18:58] <clever> so you didnt copy the entire image to the card
[18:58] <benighted> doomlord_1, that would do it.. if I could find my homrow
[18:58] <doomlord_1> i did some crude maths. 32gb / 100mb/sec = 5mins. at 15mins i thought 'sod it..'
[18:58] <benighted> doomlord_1, re-run the dd let it finish and then run 'sudo sync'
[18:59] <doomlord_1> ok. can i make it quicker with partitioning (not writing 32gb)
[18:59] <clever> doomlord_1: you can tell dd to give a progress report if you send it signal USR1
[18:59] <doomlord_1> does that work on mac
[18:59] <clever> doomlord_1: how big is the image file you downloaded?
[19:00] <theugster> Aww, it's a Mac. I was going to suggest pipebench
[19:00] <TheWarden> pksato: thanks
[19:01] <doomlord_1> 3,276,800,000 bytes-3gb; 680,525,824 bytes transfered (0.6gb), it told me. That'll be it. I'll need to leave it a lot longer it seems.
[19:02] * lazy_prince is now known as killer_prince
[19:02] <doomlord_1> it tells me 1.4mb/sec , ouch

[19:04] <doomlord_1> i read about 'pv' for linux.. i guess i should just be patient now, knowing in 15mins it only did 0.6gb of 3gb
[19:04] <theugster> Indeed, I've not tried that before
[19:04] <doomlord_1> yikes. is there a smaller image i can try
[19:04] <clever> ah pv, i keep loosing that one
[19:05] <doomlord_1> i'll kick this off then get looking for another image
[19:05] <benighted> doomlord_1, the longer you are asking about it taking less time the more time it will take... Just set it and go do something for 20 minutes to half hour
[19:05] <doomlord_1> yeah i'll do that, then start looking again..
[19:06] <benighted> doomlord_1, which image you download?

[20:21] <benighted> sudormrf, I hear you.. I could buy 10 with 20 dollar shipping but just need one, so getting it through the uprights
[20:22] <BobFrankly> better then amazon retailers, 54 dollars for an rpi2, AND 10 S&H

[20:24] <ozzzy> lots of people charge more than that
[20:24] <sudormrf> $16 for 2, $10 for 1.
[20:25] <sudormrf> that is ludicrous
[20:25] <benighted> djazz, would be interested to see thermal benchmarks and what a 1.1-2ghz overclock would do to it
[20:25] <Encapsulation> I need rpi2 in the usa right now shipped in 3 days or less for 35 free shipping
[20:25] <sudormrf> it costs them MAYBE $5 to ship

[20:25] <sudormrf> ozzzy, all of the sellers I am seeing are doing this :S
[20:25] <BobFrankly> you're saving so much by buying a rpi2 that you can splurge on shipping - "Scrooge McDuck"
[20:25] <sudormrf> BobFrankly, lol
[20:26] <ozzzy> I shipped a small package to Spain.... $15 by post... $105 by USP next day... the guy wanted it and he paid as much to ship as the part was worth
[20:26] <benighted> sudormrf, they can't make margin off the pi so they get you on shipping... the world we know after apple
[20:26] <jkridner> Tenkawa: BeagleBone Black has been on sale there for $39.99 for most of the Dec/Jan.
[20:26] <sudormrf> the thing is that the shipping they are listing is a flat rate
[20:26] <sudormrf> I haven't entered my zip code
[20:26] <sudormrf> benighted, ha
[20:26] <Tenkawa> jkridner: yeah I picked up a few of them
[20:26] <ozzzy> sudormrf, I paid $20 shipping.... not outrageous
[20:26] <ozzzy> a lot of companies do THAT too
[20:27] <sudormrf> ozzzy, that is outrageous
[20:27] <sudormrf> how many did you order?
[20:27] <sudormrf> "super saver shipping $9.99".
[20:27] <sudormrf> outrageous
[20:27] <Tenkawa> if I'm going to go completely headless.. what cpu/gpu speeds can the current b+ rpi units run at with good power bit too hot?
[20:27] <Tenkawa> er bit/not
[20:27] <ozzzy> shipping is what we pay the shipper so we have a flat-rate contract... it's determined in talks with the shipper
[20:28] * djhworld (~djhworld@ has joined #raspberrypi
[20:28] <ozzzy> they make more on the next-door shipping and less on the cross-country shipping and it all works out
[20:28] <benighted> I just wish there were good, better, best options.. If I don't care if the part I ordered takes 2 weeks to ship, I can wait another week for free/cheap delivery... why is there only expedited for a pre-ordered part? mornonic
[20:28] <sudormrf> ozzzy, that makes no sense. shipping is not flat rate, generally speaking.
[20:28] <ozzzy> ^^
[20:28] <sudormrf> you are saying that if the warehouse where right next door to me the shipping is the same as it would be for someone across the country. shipping doesn't work like that
[20:28] <ozzzy> Mouser charges flat rate, DK charges flat rate, Element14 charges flat rate
[20:28] <ozzzy> [shrug]
[20:28] <Encapsulation> 10 dollar shipping on pi rip off
[20:28] <Encapsulation> give me pi 2 free shipping
[20:28] <ozzzy> sudormrf, yes it does
[20:29] <sudormrf> ozzzy, it very much does not.
[20:29] <ozzzy> it very much does
[20:29] <ozzzy> flat-rate shipping is flat-rate shipping... it's part of the contract between the shipper and the carrier
[20:29] <sudormrf> and you know that E14 has a flat rate contract, or is that an assumption?
[20:29] <ozzzy> they charge me flat-rate
[20:30] * kirin` (telex@gateway/shell/anapnea.net/x-olqdzthsmfmfqwmd) Quit (Ping timeout: 245 seconds)
[20:30] <sudormrf> so it is empirical evidence not based on any knowledge of the inner workings of these companies?
[20:30] <ozzzy> I know how MY flat-rate contract works
[20:30] <sudormrf> $10 for shipping on something that has the dimensions and weight of an rPi is ludicrous. shipping will cost $5 if that.
[20:31] <ozzzy> sudormrf, like I said... I shipped a pi-sized package to Spain and the shipping was $105
[20:31] <sudormrf> the thing barely weighs more than a gift card.
[20:31] <BobFrankly> $10 assumes it being sent by carrier pigeon, and feeding it for the month it will take to get there

[20:32] <sudormrf> it isn't.
[20:32] <sudormrf> shipping isn't flat rate to everywhere
[20:32] <ozzzy> it could be if that's what you negociate with the carrier
[20:32] <sudormrf> it is a staggered rate *unless* you have a contract
[20:32] <Armand> BobFrankly: Bloody hard to hit a pigeon with a car. O_o

[20:52] <shauno> should be a simple enough test though. stick something unrelated (eg rasbian) in it, see if it shows the same. try the openelec card in another pi, see if it shows the same.

[20:54] <djazz> it was pretty new, 16 GB sandisk :(

[21:03] <djazz> it boots!
[21:03] <niston> djazz: 1100Mhz should be fine according to RPF info
[21:03] <benighted> imbezol, actually better with 6, a cluster each for compute, network, storage
[21:03] <niston> ie "stock OC option"
[21:03] <djazz> why are there 4 raspberry pi logos btw?
[21:04] <ali1234> 4 cpus?
[21:04] <djazz> xD
[21:04] <ali1234> that logo would be a penguin in vanilla kernel
[21:04] <djazz> i know
[21:05] <djazz> hmm, pi2 is same as turbo but only 2 overvolt
[21:05] <imbezol> benighted: it should work if you're running arm vms
[21:05] <djazz> since the rpi2 cpu cores have a start freq of 800

[21:28] <Tenkawa> heheheh
[21:28] <imbezol> got a disk drive shortly after so it was never an issue
[21:28] <clever> ive heard stories about the copy protection on those disk drives
[21:28] <clever> basicaly, you pack more sectors into a track then the drive can possibly write out
[21:29] <clever> the hack to copy the disks, add more ram to the disk drive!!

[21:29] <clever> then switch to write mode to stick sector 6 into the right spot

[21:30] <Tenkawa> nothing was ever "easy"
[21:30] <clever> the specs allow for large gaps, thats how it works
[21:30] <imbezol> copy protection was never really an issue that i remember
[21:30] <clever> the protected floppies ignored that spec, no gap, pack in as many sectors as possible
[21:30] <imbezol> reason was that there were cartridges like snapshot around
[21:30] <clever> so its imposible for a normal floppy drive to write 1 sector on the track
[21:31] <imbezol> just load the legit copy, then take a memory snapshot to your own disk
[21:31] <imbezol> or save the snapshot in the cartridge
[21:31] <imbezol> then you could just load the snap.. no need for the original
[21:31] <Tenkawa> heh I wish I could sysadmin a datacenter of rpi, bbb, etc sized servers
[21:31] <Tenkawa> that would be pretty neat
[21:31] <clever> sounds like you would need to snapshot it at the right time though

[21:32] <clever> i can see how that would work
[21:32] * knob (~knob@ Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[21:32] <teclo-> lots of tricky copy protection on floppies
[21:32] <imbezol> amiga was a whole different game tho.. they had all kinds of wild copy protection that was nearly impossible to circumvent
[21:32] <teclo-> the solution was to snapshot the memory and save it and later reload it
[21:32] <clever> even some modern virtual machines let you do that at the system level, for an entire x86 machine
[21:32] <imbezol> for the end user anyways
[21:33] <imbezol> that's when the cracking groups got huge.. rereleasing trained versions

[21:34] <clever> the c64 floppy drives where similar
[21:34] <Tenkawa> imbezol: one way to implememnt wear leveling and io patterning
[21:34] <imbezol> made it impossible for most copy programs to copy a disk
[21:34] <clever> the floppy drive had its own 6502 cpu, and some of the low level commands did things like copy sector to ram
[21:35] <clever> write data to ram
[21:35] <clever> and execute ram on the disk drive end
[21:35] <imbezol> yeah the 1541 drives were a computer to themselves
[21:35] <clever> that lets you upload custom firmware to the sector buffer, and then hijack the whole floppy drive
[21:35] <clever> some DRM systems i think used that, to just implement an entirely custom encoding on the floppy
[21:36] <clever> and the ram upgrade i mentioned, would add extra ram to the 1541, then use custom firmware that can write an entire track at once
[21:36] <imbezol> do you mess around with vice at all?

[21:42] <clever> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nintendo_Entertainment_System
[21:43] <clever> The NES contains 2 kB of onboard work RAM. A game cartridge may contain expanded RAM to increase this amount. The size of NES games varies from 8 kB (Galaxian) to 1 MB (Metal Slader Glory), but 128 to 384 kB was the most common.

[21:46] <clever> i have seen krieger, but that needs a ton of ram
[21:46] <imbezol> i used to love demos :)

[21:46] <clever> small input code, that generates a ton of output at startup
[21:46] <atouk> amiga had the best demo scene
[21:46] <imbezol> had a pretty big collection of c64 and amiga ones
[21:46] <imbezol> still does
[21:46] <clever> many of the graphic things on the c64 and friends apply to the pi as well
[21:47] * marlinc (~marlinc@ip1.weert.li.nl.cvo-technologies.com) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[21:47] <clever> the pi scans the dispmanx resources every time hdmi needs a line of image
[21:47] <clever> so you could change things mid-frame for effect
[21:47] <imbezol> maybe we should start a huge pi demo scene
[21:47] <Tenkawa> heheheeh
[21:48] <imbezol> 1 gig sdcard limit
[21:48] <imbezol> that's a lot actually
[21:48] <clever> you could limit based on the size of kernel.img
[21:48] <Tenkawa> thats multiple albums really
[21:48] <clever> there are many baremetal examples that involve creating your own kernel.img
[21:49] <imbezol> actually pis are cheap enough.. it'd be cool to have one for each of your favorite emulators

[21:50] <atouk> so much of it was done in hardware (god bless fat agnus)
[21:50] <Tenkawa> ah
[21:50] <imbezol> the hardware was so different than x86 that it didn't lend well to emulation
[21:51] <Tenkawa> was not aware that one was so hardware driven
[21:51] <imbezol> i'm not sure if uae will run on arm either

[21:51] <Tenkawa> whats its native chip type?
[21:51] <clever> i had a thought just now on how to emulate the sprites in the graphic chips
[21:51] <imbezol> motorola 68000 series
[21:51] <Tenkawa> oh
[21:51] <clever> just make 1 dispmanx resource per sprite
[21:51] <clever> and let the GPU do the sprites naturaly
[21:51] <imbezol> the cpu wasn't the hardest part though.. it's the graphics and sound chips
[21:52] <Tenkawa> m68k are a bit touchy if I remember correctly
[21:52] <clever> graphics you could map to dispmanx and continue to use modern hw accel
[21:52] <clever> sound, you got 3 more cores to spare, over 100 if you can adapt it to the v3d shaders
[21:52] <imbezol> it'd be sweet to make a mini amiga 1000 out of a pi
[21:53] <imbezol> http://oldcomputers.net/pics/A1000.jpg

[21:54] <imbezol> better pic
[21:54] <clever> ali1234: for game logic, or to render one over another?
[21:54] <ali1234> for game logic
[21:54] <clever> i didnt think the GPU chip ever did that
[21:55] <clever> isnt it the job of the game logic on the CPU?

[22:40] <Dragonkeeper> how does omxplayer get a display when i havnt started X ?
[22:40] <[Saint]> I know next to nothing about its history.
[22:40] <djazz> omxplayer uses gpu, not x
[22:40] <[Saint]> In its time, and in some aspects, even now, its a bit of a beast.
[22:40] <Dragonkeeper> can that be done with other apps ?
[22:41] <clever> Dragonkeeper: behind the scenes, its uding dispmanx, which other apps can also use
[22:41] <djazz> Dragonkeeper: anything using gpu directly will draw on top of whatever framebuffer there is
[22:41] <djazz> (i think)
[22:41] <clever> all dispmanx items have a layer property to set the draw order

[23:30] * nighty^ (~nighty@hokuriku.rural-networks.com) Quit (Quit: Disappears in a puff of smoke)
[23:30] <ali1234> jrtappers: how did you connect it?
[23:30] <jrtappers> ali1234, power supply to a breadboard, off of that to the pi and servo
[23:30] <[Saint]> perhaps, if that power supply was lying.
[23:30] <[Saint]> which many do.
[23:31] <[Saint]> Got a multimeter on hand?
[23:31] <ali1234> servos can easily draw more than 2A when stalled
[23:31] <ali1234> if they are normal sized
[23:31] <ali1234> not those tiny plastic ones
[23:31] <[Saint]> ah, yeah, good point. asking how large the serve is is a good point.
[23:31] <jrtappers> [Saint], The servo current was measured with the multimeter, but if it is dipping it is doing it faster than the multimeter shows
[23:31] <[Saint]> I was automatically assuming a tiny little hobby servo.
[23:32] <jrtappers> And it is quite a large servo, but I am running no weight on it at the moment
[23:32] <ali1234> servos don't free run, they are geared. so there's a lot of internal load due to friction
[23:32] * VoIP_Student (~Mike@ Quit (Quit: BACON!)
[23:33] <Triffid_Hunter> and inertia
[23:33] <ali1234> that too

[23:34] <jrtappers> [Saint], The project runs off a 5v 2A / 1A battery pack, is there a good way to do it off one supply, or is 2 the best option?
[23:34] <[Saint]> I'm not a particular fan of powering peripherals or hardware with the pi directly.
[23:34] * kirin` (telex@gateway/shell/anapnea.net/x-rgcrsorcwgkpefvo) has joined #raspberrypi
[23:34] <[Saint]> mainly for historical reasons, but personally I find it a lot cleaner, and easier to diagnose issue.
[23:34] <ali1234> jrtappers: one of those 18650 battery packs?
[23:34] <ali1234> ebay/amazon chinese special?
[23:35] <ali1234> that thing probably can't supply 2A
[23:35] <jrtappers> ali1234, maybe, it does look like one of the models on ebay for cheap...
[23:35] <ali1234> the raw batteries could but not the boost converters they use
[23:35] <ali1234> they are usually 1A
[23:35] <ali1234> and if they are really cheap there will just be one for both USB ports
[23:36] <jrtappers> And also, would optoisolators switch fast enough servos?
[23:36] <ali1234> switching servos?
[23:36] <djazz> go watch dat smooth OpenArena 60 fps gameplay! :D https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1qJB64gn6Mo
[23:36] <Triffid_Hunter> jrtappers: don't need optos, just two power supplies with the grounds connected together
[23:36] <ali1234> servos are usually PWM controlled unless you mod them
[23:36] <jrtappers> ali1234, To keep the two supplies completely seperate
[23:37] <[Saint]> dat music...
[23:37] <djazz> xD
[23:37] <ali1234> i'm sure openarena had better graphics than that...
[23:38] <jrtappers> Just because the servo will be moving a heavy part via gears, and I don't want a surprise later on
[23:38] <[Saint]> yeah, it seems greatly pared down.
[23:38] <[Saint]> djazz: did you have to drop the textures down?
[23:38] <[Saint]> It looks....wrong.
[23:39] <[Saint]> there's a heap of visible aliasing and the textures look just plain weird.
