[0:28] <bint> ah well
[0:29] <bint> i tought i might be able to emulate the complete raspberry and work on the sd-card i'd later put back into my raspberry
[0:29] <bint> but it looks like qemu doesn't work like that

[0:32] <shiftplusone> bint, it does
[0:32] <shiftplusone> you can do usermode emulation
[0:33] <shiftplusone> and chroot into the sd card
[0:33] <shiftplusone> there are a few things you need to do to make it work properly, but you can script them and go from there.
[0:33] * rvalles (~rvalles@unaffiliated/rvalles) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:34] <shiftplusone> disable automatic starting of services when they're installed, disable the optimized mem* routines, copy qemu-user-static in there, and chroot

[0:40] * Bilby looks into Intel NUC systems
[0:40] <Bilby> Hmm. Wonder how cheaply I could build these...
[0:40] <Froolap> ???

[0:41] <Bilby> Froolap it's a highly-integrated, low power device with hardware video decoding. Kind of like a RasPi that runs windows
[0:41] <Froolap> heh
[0:42] <Froolap> then it will need to have 80 gig's of ram.
[0:43] <Bilby> hah. most of them can take either 8 or 16 gb
[0:44] * foob- (dicklips@ Quit ()
[0:45] <Bilby> I just specced out one with 2.4ghz dual core celeron, 8gb ram, 120gb SSD for $280
[0:45] <NGC3982> wat
[0:46] <NGC3982> On what, and where, and how do i get one.
[0:46] <NGC3982> Oh, dual core.
[0:46] <NGC3982> Never mind! \o/
[0:47] * Kostenko (~Kostenko@bl14-205-114.dsl.telepac.pt) Quit (Ping timeout: 252 seconds)
[0:47] <jamesd_> rumors has it that the pi 2 will run windows 10...
[0:47] <NGC3982> "rumors"?
[0:47] <NGC3982> What rumors. Microsoft say "it runs Windows 10".
[0:47] <NGC3982> :D.
[0:48] <plugwash> they haven't actually released anything yet though
[0:48] <plugwash> and while details have been scarce it looks like it will be crippled to at least some degree
[0:48] <Bilby> NGC3982 modern dual core is good compared to the old stuff, and hardware video decoding helps too
[0:49] <nerdboy> anybody build vc-graphics-hardfp recently?
[0:49] <NGC3982> Bilby: That's nice.
[0:50] * jamesd_ remembers when people were happy to have a 70mhz or slower cpu and 32MB of ram as a desktop...
[0:51] <Sonny_Jim> Bah
[0:51] <HoloPed> how do I format the microSD card to put noobs on it ?
[0:51] <Sonny_Jim> Back in my day, we had a potato, and we liked it!
[0:51] <HoloPed> for some reason it won't boot
[0:51] <PovAddict> HoloPed: from what OS?
[0:51] <HoloPed> I tried FAT and FAT32
[0:51] <HoloPed> Windows

[1:00] <Mr_Sheesh> HoloPed - I've used Win32DiskImager to write .img files to my SD cards from XP, works well enough, I haven't used NOOBS yet but I imagine it'd be fine for that too
[1:00] <PovAddict> NOOBS isn't in an .img file
[1:01] <Mr_Sheesh> Aah; what type of file is it in?
[1:01] <Froolap> There's an sd format tool on the pi home page, Use that
[1:01] <PovAddict> it's a zip, you extract its *contents* into the SD card
[1:01] <Froolap> then follow instructions, it worked for me the one time I used it.
[1:02] <Mr_Sheesh> Oh, SDFormatter if you need to format the SD card, you should be able to find that
[1:03] <HoloPed> Froolap, yes the SD format tool. Thats it. Won't work without that.

[1:53] <newsham> hi. i had a booting sdcard, i mounted it, moved some files around and then unmounted it, and now its not booting.
[1:53] <newsham> i went back to replace the files and it still isnt booting
[1:53] <newsham> is there anything "special" about the fatfs and the boot images on the sdcard?
[1:55] <shiftplusone> special in what way? you moved what files around where?
[1:55] * esas (~esas@unaffiliated/esas) has joined #raspberrypi

[1:56] <newsham> i have an sdcard that used to boot arch linux, i wanted ot temporarily boot uboot
[1:56] * c00ljs (~c00ljs@ Quit (Ping timeout: 245 seconds)
[1:58] <shiftplusone> did you umount properly or yank the card out?
[1:58] <newsham> nope
[1:58] <shiftplusone> which?
[1:58] <newsham> i unmounted properly
[1:58] * wcypierre is now known as zz_wcypierre

[2:01] <shiftplusone> is this pi 1 or pi 2?
[2:01] * plugwash (~plugwash@97e3d836.skybroadband.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[2:01] <newsham> hrmm.. repeated again and its booting my linux again
[2:01] <newsham> heh
[2:02] <newsham> this is rpi1 B.
[2:02] <shiftplusone> well.... as long as it's sorted O_o
[2:02] <newsham> i need to get it booting a uboot image that i can access via uart
[2:02] <WACOMalt> will berryboot's backup to USB sd reader create a full install of the backed up OS or will it still be a berryboot install?
[2:03] <newsham> basically i just need to overwrite the kernel.img and config.txt, right?
[2:04] * Tenkawa (~arakeen@unaffiliated/tenkawa) has joined #raspberrypi
[2:04] <Tenkawa> hi all
[2:04] <shiftplusone> not sure about config.txt... it depends.
[2:04] <Tenkawa> whats up?
[2:05] <shiftplusone> not much >.>
[2:05] <newsham> loader.bin and bootcode.bin are stock images that should always be the same?
[2:06] <shiftplusone> loader.bin?
[2:06] <shiftplusone> oh, that's a uboot thing
[2:07] <chipmadness> anyone making something cool?
[2:07] <shiftplusone> when the pi first powers up, it loads bootcode.bin, which loads start.elf, which loads kernel.img
[2:07] * taza (~taza@unaffiliated/taza) Quit ()
[2:07] <newsham> bootcode.bin is the one that runs in the gpu? start.elf is what?
[2:07] <Tenkawa> any reports from much rpi 2 testing?
[2:07] <shiftplusone> both on the gpu
[2:07] <Tenkawa> whats the thoughts so far?
[2:08] <newsham> ok got it. so those i shoul dnever want to replace
[2:08] <Tenkawa> I'm still trying to acquire a few here
[2:08] <shiftplusone> yes. start_x and start_cd are versions of start.elf which may load based on certain conditions (mostly what you specify in config.txt)
[2:08] <shiftplusone> fixup files should also stay where they are
[2:09] <shiftplusone> they correct the memory split or something
[2:09] <Tenkawa> ahh the good ole boot process
[2:10] <[Saint]> chipmadness: nope - makin' coffee, its very hot.
[2:10] <newsham> ok, great, i got uboot in serial now. thanks everyone
[2:10] * newsham (~chat@udp217044uds.hawaiiantel.net) has left #raspberrypi
[2:10] <Tenkawa> [Saint]: sounds pretty cool to me heheheh
[2:10] <shiftplusone> hurray
[2:11] <Tenkawa> I need more coffee

[2:12] * niston hands Tenkawa the cup full of coffeine powder
[2:12] * Tenkawa says thank you and drinks it all
[2:13] <niston> you drink powder? xD
[2:13] <Tenkawa> niston: actually yes
[2:13] <niston> might try with orange juice :P
[2:13] <Tenkawa> instant coffee is effectively a powder
[2:13] * Cirrus_Minor (~Cirrus_Mi@CAcert/Cirrus-Minor) Quit (Quit: ◀▬▬ •••They Must've taken my marbles away••◀▬▬)
[2:13] <niston> true
[2:13] <Tenkawa> I make coffee mixes using that stuff
[2:14] <Tenkawa> chocolate.. milk.. etc
[2:14] <Tenkawa> nice homebrew frappe
[2:15] <Tenkawa> need to figure out a vendor who can get me rpi2's shipped
[2:15] <Tenkawa> supply is just so short right now
[2:15] * shiftplusone frowns at all the coffee slurpers.
[2:16] <shiftplusone> Tea is the one true beverage.
[2:16] <Tenkawa> shiftplusone: I drink even more green and oolong tea
[2:16] <Tenkawa> oolong is my favorite
[2:17] * hyperair (~hyperair@ubuntu/member/hyperair) Quit (Ping timeout: 245 seconds)
[2:18] <shiftplusone> Can't have it both ways Tenkawa
[2:18] <Tenkawa> why not?
[2:18] <shiftplusone> You're either with us or against us.... or something.... I don't know.
[2:18] <Tenkawa> hehehheheheh
[2:18] <Tenkawa> indeed
[2:18] <Bilby> np: Under Pressure (Queen)
[2:18] <Bilby> awwwe yeah
[2:19] <Tenkawa> wasnt that david bowie?
[2:19] <Bilby> there's a version with Queen + David Bowie
[2:19] <Tenkawa> ahhhh
[2:19] <Tenkawa> I thought there was however couldnt say for sure
[2:19] <Bilby> it's the one you usually hear.
[2:19] <Bilby> no worries :)
[2:20] <Tenkawa> I was listening to ELP mostly at that time
[2:20] <Bilby> aha
[2:21] <Tenkawa> heheh
[2:21] <Tenkawa> get some Tarkus going...
[2:22] <Tenkawa> or Hoedown would be a good one to play
[2:22] <[Saint]> shiftplusone: y'all been in Pomland too long.
[2:22] <Bilby> lol
[2:23] <Bilby> np: I'm Gonna Be (500 miles) (The Proclaimers)
[2:23] <Bilby> good night for music, my brain is mush anyhow
[2:23] <Tenkawa> haahaa
[2:23] <Tenkawa> nice choice
[2:23] <Tenkawa> who was the group that redid that one pretty successfully?
[2:23] <shiftplusone> [Saint], Pomland!?!
[2:24] <shiftplusone> Does this look like Pomland to you? https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/175702/2015-02-16%2012.25.01.jpg

[2:24] <[Saint]> Tea. Pffffffft!
[2:24] <shiftplusone> heh
[2:24] <[Saint]> Flower water.
[2:25] * Tachyon` is now known as Tach[Zzz]
[2:25] <Bilby> Da da da alala aam da ada
[2:25] <Bilby> Tenkawa i know what you're talking about but i can't remember the cover band
[2:25] <Tenkawa> let me look it up
[2:25] <[Saint]> The influence between aroma and flavor is strong, indeed, but I've never personally been big on drinking something that's pretty much completely devoid of taste, as tea is.
[2:26] * hyperair (~hyperair@ubuntu/member/hyperair) has joined #raspberrypi
[2:26] * speeddragon (~speeddrag@ Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[2:26] <[Saint]> Most of it is bitter tanins, and perceived flavor from aroma. Its a weird thing indeed.
[2:26] <shiftplusone> Sure, but coffee taste like you've brewed a sock
[2:26] <Sonny_Jim> Heresy!
[2:26] <Sonny_Jim> Tea has taste, just not this rotten foreign muck
[2:26] <Sonny_Jim> You want a proper cuppa, something you can stand a spoon up in
[2:26] <shiftplusone> heh
[2:27] <[Saint]> Its mostly aromatics, and yes, indeed, aroma does have a big influence on taste - but tea itself is almost completely tasteless.
[2:27] <Bilby> Tenkawa you're either thinking of Down by Law... or Alvin and the Chipmonks.
[2:27] <[Saint]> If you lose your sense of small, tea becomes hot brown water.
[2:27] <[Saint]> *smell, even
[2:27] <ironbeard> I've seen a few tutorials around about making a bluetooth speaker with a RPi, as well as certain sources saying the sound quality of the board itself isn't that good, but haven't been able to find much information on whether it's noticeably bad in the context of just playing music via bluetooth. I'd like to avoid getting something like the HiFiBerry if possible. Anyone know of sources of information for this?
[2:27] * Scorp1us (~Scorp1us@pool-108-40-14-23.bltmmd.fios.verizon.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[2:27] <Sonny_Jim> If you've lost your sense of smell, pretty much everything taste like water
[2:28] <Bilby> ironbeard it's pretty bad, but try it first maybe with just a test file and some speakers? it's not un-listenable but it ain't great
[2:28] <Scorp1us> Sonny_Jim, My father lost his sense of smell he still does have some taste
[2:28] <chipmadness> Hey guys, im trying to make a robot that looks like Katy Perry, does anyone know how i can implement a raspberry pi?
[2:28] <Bilby> if that's not acceptable you can also try a USB sound card
[2:28] <Tenkawa> Bilby: yeah I thunk its the Alvin one
[2:29] <Bilby> chipmadness I suggest you look into the OSCP - Open Source Cloning Project - they're utilizing Odroid boards, though
[2:29] <shiftplusone> chipmadness, wigs.
[2:29] <ironbeard> Bilby: Yeah, I'm waiting on a B2 in the mail right now, but was hoping to get an A+ for this purpose to save money. It'd mainly be a kitchen/bathroom speaker for morning and cooking, but I guess I'll just have to try it out. Was hoping to basically build a Jawbone for "cheap"
[2:29] <Tenkawa> one of the bands in the article mentioned I remember really well "Midnight Oil"
[2:29] <Scorp1us> Does anyone know how many stream processors the B2 has?
[2:29] <chipmadness> Bilby: I might do Tupac also
[2:30] <Bilby> ironbeard yeah gotcha. try the sound card, if you don't like it try USB. iirc the + boards are "marginally better" so maybe it'll be good for your needs
[2:30] <ozzzy> ironbeard, you can buy a set of wireless speaker for less hassle and cost than making one with a pi

[2:35] <[Saint]> I'm guessing its for...errr..."reasons".
[2:35] <[Saint]> ;)
[2:35] <shiftplusone> Sounds like something Howard Wolowitz might say.
[2:36] <shiftplusone> Bilby, why? does an odroid look more katy perry-like?

[4:50] <phire> hmm
[4:51] <phire> is it possible to have multiple dhcp servers on a network

[4:52] <phire> and make the second server only give addresses to those devices which explicitly request addresses from it

[4:52] <phire> I can physically or logically segment the network

[4:53] <plugwash> phire, I think it's technically possible to run dhcp on a nonstandard port
[4:53] <phire> Don't think there are ports, it's done at the MAC layer
[4:53] <plugwash> so clients using the nonstandard port will only see servers that run on the nonstandard port
[4:54] <plugwash> IIIRC dhcp is UDP based though I belive there are some special tricks to make it work before the machine has an address

[5:01] <niston> or... you can also do this with linux I think
[5:01] <plugwash> well if you want to use vlans you really need a switch that support them, that means going a little above the bottom of the barrel stuff
[5:02] <niston> phire: if you're working without VLAN support on the switch, your hosts will have to support it.
[5:02] <clever> oh great, power is out for the 3rd time this week
[5:02] <plugwash> not sure who is the go to brand for switches with vlan support that aren't crazy expensive, I think netgear may have some stuff
[5:02] <phire> but the switch will still switch things correctly?
[5:02] <clever> it died twice before the storm, and once after the storm!
[5:03] <Triffid_Hunter> phire: not really, DHCP is a broadcast protocol that runs before anything is assigned an address, you'd have to do mac address filtering on the dhcp servers, but if you already know the MAC addresses and are prepared to create individual entries, why not just give the devices static IPs?
[5:03] <niston> I have a netgear GS724T

[5:08] <niston> ya I'm pretty satisfied with those netgears
[5:08] <niston> only thing that failed was the cheapo china inc. wallwart power supplies
[5:09] <clever> only thing in my house that has vlan support is an old managed cisco switch, and its 100mbit max

[5:14] <niston> phire: those chipsets tend to have I2C for management

[5:14] <niston> hook 'em up to your Pi ;D
[5:14] <clever> :D
[5:15] <clever> if you need a lot of managed switches, you can probly program a bare avr to configure it on startup, and just leave an avr in each
[5:16] <niston> on a side note, you can now buy broadcom switch chips @ mouser
[5:16] <clever> add an avr-ISP port for re-config

[5:23] <niston> I figure it could be reverse engineered quite easily
[5:23] <niston> but wasn't worth the trouble to me
[5:23] <clever> i have tried to reverse engineer the firmware updater for my modem once
[5:23] <phire> I figure it communicates via ethernet frames
[5:23] <clever> it uses plain ftp to transfer the files, but the identical name/pw doesnt work when used manualy
[5:23] <niston> phire: either that or UDP
[5:23] <clever> the updater app also does a crap-ton of SNMP before it begins the ftp transfer
[5:23] <niston> the config utility finds connected switches via broadcast
[5:23] <clever> so i'm guessing the SNMP unlocks uploads

[5:25] <clever> Sonny_Jim: mine worked from the LAN side, but the ISP had changed the firmware, and likely changed the signing keys

[5:25] <clever> the updater app fails every time, so i cant un-brand the modem
[5:26] <clever> dsl modem with built in 'router'
[5:26] <niston> oh
[5:26] <clever> a horid excuse for a router
[5:26] <clever> it cant even forward a single port
[5:26] <niston> lol
[5:26] <niston> "router" yeah
[5:26] <clever> the docs online say it can
[5:26] <clever> but it only has 2 pages now, which simple ask you for the name/pw
[5:26] <clever> in english or french
[5:27] <clever> every url in the docs will 404
[5:27] <niston> sometimes ISPs load "customized" (read: fubar'd) firmware
[5:27] <clever> exactly
[5:27] <clever> luckily, it still functioned as a pppoe modem
[5:27] <clever> so i was able to aim a linux desktop at it, and get full use out of the connection
[5:27] <niston> right
[5:27] <clever> and every time the connection went down, tcpdump showed no reply to the pppoe requests

[5:29] <clever> 600kbyte/sec download ate about 60% of the cpu usage
[5:29] <clever> i now have 80mbit download
[5:29] <niston> ouch
[5:29] <clever> way outside of its reach
[5:29] <clever> i think it was a 200mhz pentium, lol
[5:29] <niston> had a similar problem here with my firewall platform
[5:29] <niston> solved it by downgrading the connection *g*
[5:30] <clever> because of that, i have had to stick with the 'customized' router they supplied with the new setup
[5:30] <clever> it has port forwards, but its far from good

[5:36] <niston> everyone sets up PVR services
[5:36] <niston> these days
[5:36] <aberrant> I don’t know what to do with this rpi2 if this new power supply doesn’t work
[5:36] <niston> multicast work with that ¨
[5:36] <clever> niston: this multicast system feeds a PVR
[5:37] <clever> it records the multicast stream to a local hdd, and then streams it within the house via unicast
[5:37] <aberrant> huh. Maybe it IS the power supply
[5:37] <niston> yeah thats not what I meant
[5:37] <aberrant> these new rpi2’s won’t work 5V@1A
[5:37] <niston> its like you can watch the past 3 weeks of TV
[5:37] <niston> on demand
[5:38] <clever> i think i have that also, but whats the point when i already have the show flagged to record localy
[5:38] <niston> and if everyone's watching something else, multicast unfortunately does not longer fit into the picture
[5:38] <DropBear> aberrant it draws <500ma at 5v
[5:38] <aberrant> the 5V@2A PS seems to be holding up
[5:38] <niston> clever: its a major headache for bandwidth planning
[5:38] <aberrant> DropBear: it was freezing on compile
[5:38] <aberrant> DropBear: but with this new 2A PS, it’s working
[5:39] <clever> niston: yeah, i can see how it would be an issue to stream on-demand
[5:39] * botnut (~kernel_st@162-233-77-128.lightspeed.miamfl.sbcglobal.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[5:39] <niston> big ISPs push that on-demand crap
[5:40] <niston> so the small ones get pushed out of market because they cant keep up with their wimpy backbones
[5:40] <niston> its really a slaughterfest
[5:40] <clever> and the UI lags like hell
[5:40] <clever> i would much rather build my own PVR, the hdd in this thing is wimpy
[5:40] <clever> and it has no priority for deleting stuff
[5:41] <clever> i have investigated, and any computer on my LAN can join the multicast group and get flooded with the stream
[5:42] <clever> plain rtp, containing plain mpegts, with normal mp3/aac/h264 content
[5:42] <clever> and the normal encryption that comes along with mpegts!
[5:42] * TyrfingMjolnir (~Tyrfing@ has joined #raspberrypi
[5:42] <niston> so building a PVR shouldn't be a problem
[5:42] <clever> i just need the decryption keys

[5:45] <clever> but because i lack the keys, i have to get an encoding hd capture system, and take the analog loop-hole
[5:45] <niston> I see that yeah
[5:45] <niston> perhaps they can be pulled from your existing hardware?
[5:45] <clever> in theory, i could possibly even turn the raspberrypi into a DVR
[5:46] <clever> i have 2 STB's, the first one is a dumb unit, no hdd, all it can do on its own is stream live tv
[5:46] <clever> the second is the brains, it has a hdd to record, and can stream to the dumb units
[5:46] <niston> aye.
[5:46] <clever> i yanked the hdd, and poped on a usb adapter, 2 partitions
[5:46] <clever> both fat32
[5:47] <clever> the big partition has about 150 files, each 1gig in size
[5:47] <niston> would seem sort of sloppy to have the keys stored there
[5:47] <clever> max filesize limits
[5:47] <clever> they had to create their own encrypted volume within the fat32 volume
[5:47] <clever> i have found a ton of exe and jpg files on the drive
[5:47] <niston> heh
[5:47] <clever> various config menus, even for features i lack
[5:48] <clever> it seems it can be controlled with an xbox 360 controller
[5:48] <niston> so it runs windows xp embedded or something?
[5:48] <clever> but i lack the receiver

[5:48] <niston> hah. CE = cancer edition
[5:48] <clever> :D
[5:49] <clever> the odd part, is that the dumb model can boot and decrypt without a hdd
[5:49] <clever> so its either booting from flash, or network
[5:49] <niston> keys probably stored in some flash somewhere
[5:49] <niston> yeah
[5:49] <clever> it does a ton of 'plain-text http' on startup

[5:49] * gbaman (~gbaman@ Quit (Ping timeout: 252 seconds)
[5:49] <clever> thats the whole point of the encryption scheme
[5:50] * TyrfingMjolnir (~Tyrfing@ Quit (Quit: Searching for Waimea)
[5:50] <clever> there is a stream within the mpegts, that has the encrypted 'real keys'
[5:50] <clever> that stream is sent to the black box (usualy a card in a reader)
[5:50] <clever> which then spits out the real keys
[5:50] <niston> ah. that would be the CI interface?
[5:50] <clever> yeah
[5:50] <clever> a dedicated encrypted keystream from the mpegts layer is sent to the card
[5:51] <clever> which decrypts the real keys with a 2nd set of keys
[5:51] <clever> so the main encryption for the video can change every minute if they want to
[5:51] * TyrfingMjolnir (~Tyrfing@ has joined #raspberrypi
[5:51] <clever> then bandwidth based attacks like WEP are useless
[5:51] <niston> yeah they started doing that when dreambox became popular I think
[5:51] <clever> same reason WPA and ssh can renegotiate keys
[5:52] <clever> i have also heard stories about satalite companies shipping a 20 part virus down that key channel

[6:05] * Stellar_Mind (~stap@ has joined #raspberrypi
[6:06] <botnut> my concern is I've been reading about the pi2 and the issue with camera flash - and it causing it to freeze completely - we just got a batch pi2s in the office and we've tried to get to them to freeze with a flash but nothing yet - we use the pis in robotics quite a bit - therefore - using IR range finders or LIDARs or some other form of sensor that uses light might interfere with it
[6:06] <[Saint]> Its only Xenon flashes that'll do it.
[6:06] <clever> and only at very close range
[6:06] <clever> some laser pointers also do it
[6:06] <[Saint]> right.

[6:07] <[Saint]> Oh? that was bad timing. I wasn't aware lasers could do it too.
[6:07] <botnut> I tried searching the net for info on the specifics of what light exactly would cause it
[6:07] <clever> mostly IR
[6:07] <[Saint]> I know you can make the picam go all sorts of nuts with a laser pointer, though.
[6:07] <botnut> what frequency or range or whatever of light.. some thing we can measure to test to make sure our sensors wont
[6:08] <niston> I think you can make every CCD or CMOS sensor go nuts when you shine your lazors on it
[6:08] * shum (~sdothum@ Quit (Quit: WeeChat 1.1.1)
[6:08] <botnut> we use IR (ranger, night vision), Laser (LIDAR) and LED (leddar)
[6:08] <niston> botnut: check the spectrum lines for xenon light
[6:08] <[Saint]> you should be able to get a lot of data on the spectrum of a Xenon flash bulb I would posit.
[6:08] <niston> as clever pointed out, IR is mostly the problem
[6:08] <niston> but: if the Pi is in a case, none of it matters
[6:09] <clever> ive heard that bare silicon is mostly transparent at IR
[6:09] <[Saint]> right.
[6:09] <Xark> botnut: If it is a real concern, just cover up this tiny chip with something opaque (and non-conductive) -> http://i.imgur.com/mAKtA7W.jpg
[6:09] <[Saint]> slam some blu-tak on it, or put it in a case, and there's no issue.
[6:10] <botnut> indeed - we were thinking of just covering up the pi all together to shield it from anything
[6:10] <Datalink> botnut, U16 is a raw part, no plastic covering it, it's photosensitive, like a photoresistor, if you hit it with some non-conductive black paint or a piece of electrical tape or a good enclosure it'll become a non-issue
[6:10] <botnut> as it stands anyway we don't directly point things at it - however the lidar and leddar spin around to range 360 degrees - therefore there might run the chance that something could happen - esp if we tilt as we spin
[6:10] <Datalink> botnut, just buy a black case, you should be fine
[6:10] <niston> black nail polish would work I guess
[6:10] <Datalink> that's my plan for my Pi2 when I get it
[6:11] <[Saint]> it needn't be black.
[6:11] <Xark> niston: Nail polish has some other nasty stuff in it so was "not recommended"
[6:11] <Datalink> conductivity test first
[6:11] <botnut> datalink - makes sense - so our assumptions on my end were accurate - just enclose it and be done with it

[6:12] <botnut> any thoguhts on running python 3.4.2 on it? we ran into issues with the B+ where we had to get it from source and compile just to get it working
[6:12] <botnut> wonder if we are going to have the same issue with the pi2
[6:12] <Xark> botnut: Mostly likely you won't need to do that for Pi2 (as ARMv7 is "standard" unlike ARMv6).
[6:12] <botnut> hrmmmmmm
[6:13] <botnut> suppose il just have to give it a go and see what happens
[6:13] * hyperair (~hyperair@ubuntu/member/hyperair) Quit (Ping timeout: 252 seconds)
[6:13] <botnut> but what's odd is the the A and B ran python 3.4.2 without an issue
[6:13] <botnut> then B+ and A+ came out and we screwed the pooch on that one figuring it out
[6:13] <Datalink> botnut, the Pi2 is on ARM7 which is more broadly supported (current gen system) so Python should be easier
[6:13] <Xark> botnut: Should be no diff between B and B+ for Python. Probably something else changed.
[6:14] <Datalink> ARM6 is generally the hardest part of the original pi as far as support in software
[6:14] <botnut> xark- it shouldn't be diff you are right - but it mos def was
[6:14] <botnut> atleast from that perspective
[6:14] <clever> botnut, Datalink: one minor problem, is that rasbian is still using arm6 libs on the pi2
[6:14] <Xark> botnut: Not hardware related, I suspect.
[6:14] <Datalink> botnut, yeah, the only difference is power circuit.
[6:14] <clever> you may not be able to mix arm6 libs and arm7 apps
[6:14] <botnut> oh yeah - we figured it wasn't the hardware - had to be something with libs
[6:15] <botnut> wasn't pleasant having to freaking compile on a pi lol esp python
[6:15] <Datalink> clever, there are a lot of distros that aren't Rasbian that are compiled against ARM7, and that will improve with time, the Pi2 is still pretty new
[6:15] <clever> Datalink: yep, just need to keep that in mind
[6:15] <Datalink> botnut, I compiled kernels on mine...
[6:15] <botnut> only thing I wonder now - is what the hell with windows
[6:15] <botnut> lol why run it on a pi - it will just CRAWL
[6:16] <niston> it won't be "regular" windows
[6:16] <botnut> so like a surface RT feel which sucks
[6:16] <clever> botnut: it may not even have a GUI
[6:16] <Datalink> botnut, MS's doing the same thing they did with the Edison and Galleo probably, just the kernel, and a cmd along with the console support, not a GUI like desktop or RT
[6:16] <botnut> so then its just dos
[6:16] <botnut> lol
[6:16] <niston> btw you can develop with Visual Studio for the Pi right away, even without M$ help
[6:16] <niston> just use mono :)
[6:16] <clever> botnut: you may be better off thinking of it like a arduino env

[6:18] <Datalink> botnut, that and the Pi's 'blog cred'
[6:18] <Xark> Datalink: I am expecting something like that from MS, however, totally lame-ass if they don't support graphics/HDMI on RPi.
[6:18] <niston> I like Visual Studio
[6:18] <niston> and the fact that CLR datatypes work everwhere
[6:19] <botnut> no doubt vs.net is a bad ass IDE but bloated
[6:19] <botnut> pi is small light nimble - keep it that way
[6:19] <niston> heck. firefox is bloated.
[6:19] <Datalink> Xark, I'm speaking mostly from what I know from the Galleo build of MS's IoT Windows version, it could be different on the Pi
[6:19] <clever> Xark: best you can hope for is maybe graphics support, but no shell i think
[6:19] <Xark> You can use Visual Studio to generate native ARM code now (so no need to waste cycles on C#).

[6:20] <Xark> clever: Right, I don't expect that. However, they mentioned running "apps" on RPi.
[6:20] <Xark> clever: Yeah, that makes sense.
[6:20] <Xark> Not so much Windows OS as a Windows "embedded target".
[6:20] <clever> yeah

[6:21] <Datalink> clever, that's actually pretty typical of CE devices, 10's multiforked, an umbrella term for what was Windows CE, Windows Phone, RT and desktop

[6:22] <Datalink> I'd still like to know why one of our studio's Pis fried, couldn't get it working with a 'known good' image, literally had to swap the boards out and chuck the dead on, nothing usable.
[6:22] <clever> Datalink: step 1, un-chuck it
[6:23] <botnut> was it battery powered?
[6:23] <Datalink> clever, I used a fresh Noobs on that thing, it didn't even give bootsplash, nor any other info, word from the other person who discovered it died was that it spewed garbage and refused to do anything after.
[6:24] <clever> strange, id check the voltages next
[6:24] <Datalink> botnut, known good charger, ran the thing for 6-8 months, no problem, in spec.
[6:24] <botnut> also check what was connected to the usb ports
[6:24] <botnut> some keybaords / mice make the pi flip out

[6:25] <Datalink> it ran a touch high, but within spec despite that, no idea, it lived past waranty though... we're eyeing the Pi2 for an upgrade considering the two where in the same production run
[6:27] <Datalink> a Pi2 and a bit of customization (I'm gonna sit down with it for a solid month and craft the OS for it's role as a messageboard) should be able to play powerpoint loops all day, ideally
[6:27] <Datalink> though I'd also prefer it reading the data from a CSV or other data source so we don't even have to plug anything in, the spot has an ethernet run connected to it
[6:35] <botnut> I haven't actually read you on the details of the pi2 spec yet - but is it still using a bridge through the usb for the ethernet port?
[6:35] <clever> botnut: yep
[6:35] <clever> exact same bridge as the b+
[6:36] <botnut> dang
[6:36] <clever> 4 port usb hub and 100mbit ethernet

[6:37] <botnut> I've been curious about the banana pi vs the rpi
[6:37] <botnut> I tend to stay loyal to rpi but it has interesting specs
[6:37] <clever> i'm actualy planning a product that will be using high bandwidth data and a pi
[6:37] <clever> but i'm going to put the high bandwidth directly off an FPGA, and then make the pi a slave for that
[6:37] <niston> clever: CSI/DSI hax0r :P
[6:37] <clever> niston: SMI is my current target
[6:37] <Datalink> the Pi's ethernet/usb chip is sound
[6:38] <niston> hehe
[6:38] <clever> niston: my plan is to run the SMI to the FPGA, and then configure the pi to treat it as a network card
[6:38] <clever> then the FPGA leads to the MII
[6:38] <niston> that would be clever
[6:38] <niston> (no pun intended)
[6:38] <aberrant> wow
[6:38] <clever> and the FPGA will inject high bandwidth data into the stream, skipping the pi
[6:38] <clever> while still letting the pi do low bandwidth stuff on the same MII
[6:38] <aberrant> Here’s a tip
[6:39] <aberrant> if you get rpi freezing, CHECK YOUR DAMN PS
[6:39] <aberrant> the rpi2 needs 2A @ 5V
[6:39] * niston nods at aberrant
[6:39] <aberrant> for any intensive work
[6:39] <niston> sound advice there
[6:39] <aberrant> since I switched to this new PS, no freezes.
[6:39] <botnut> wonder if there are any gsm usb dongles that can be used with the pi - isntead of a shield
[6:40] <clever> botnut: i have one, let me see if it 'works'
[6:40] <aberrant> I really wish they had put usb3 and an RTC in the new rpi
[6:40] <aberrant> but whatever.
[6:41] <Datalink> aberrant, the 4 core CPU is a power hog, I have to replce the vreg I chose due to using a Pi2 in the design... haven't part hunted for the bigger reg :/
[6:41] <niston> botnut: why should they not work?
[6:41] <Datalink> aberrant, that'd increase the cost, the Pi's mission includes being built to a price
[6:41] <aberrant> Datalink: I’m using my ipad charger - it’s 10W
[6:41] <botnut> not sure haven't tried
[6:41] <botnut> might draw too much
[6:41] <aberrant> when I was using the iphone charger (5W), it didn’t work. Kept freezing.
[6:42] <Datalink> USB3 is still young, and thus the chips that run it are still pricy
[6:42] <Datalink> yeah, that's 2 amp
[6:42] <aberrant> yup
[6:42] <botnut> I wouldn't want usb3 on there
[6:42] <Datalink> the voltage regulator I specced out is rated at 1.5 A, so I hve to replace it
[6:42] <clever> botnut: 404, not found
[6:42] <botnut> messes with my dell i7 laptop
[6:42] <botnut> forget the pi
[6:42] <botnut> clever - really so no go huh?
[6:42] <aberrant> 1.5A would work, no?
[6:42] <clever> botnut: cant find the usb stick
[6:42] <clever> so no way to test it out
[6:43] <clever> and i just noticed, my pi survived a 15 minute power outage
[6:43] <niston> I should have one or two of those USB GSM things, somewhere around here
[6:43] <clever> its not on battery backup...
[6:43] * niston looks around
[6:43] <niston> all I see is empty coke cans
[6:44] <[Saint]> botnut: perhaps you wanna look at the ODROID C1
[6:45] <botnut> ooo that's nice
[6:45] <Datalink> a GPS should be fine on the Pi's UART if you set the UART to match the needs of the GPS and said GPS is 3.3V
[6:45] <botnut> does it run debian?
[6:45] <[Saint]> It does.
[6:46] <[Saint]> there's even an optional eMMC module.
[6:46] <[Saint]> And the sdcard supports UHS-I
[6:46] <botnut> interesting
[6:46] <[Saint]> IOW: a lot quicker storage
[6:46] <[Saint]> all for the same price point.
[6:47] <[Saint]> well, a largely similar price point, I should say.
[6:47] <botnut> so what about powering the pi without the usb port? I've seen people powering it on the gpios... but read its not recommended
[6:47] <clever> botnut: ive ran mine with a 5v lipo boost regulator, right into the 5v header
[6:48] <botnut> really - any issues?
[6:48] <clever> nope
[6:48] <botnut> interesting
[6:48] <clever> and ive read that if you want low power, you can feed 3.3v into BOTH the +5 and +3.3 headers, it must be both (and dont even try to use the usb input when they are connected)
[6:48] <clever> the 3.3v regulator gets upset if the output is higher then the input, but if both in&out are at 3.3v, it cant get upset
[6:48] <clever> the usb wont work, but the rest will

[6:48] <botnut> we've been powering with a lipo also but thru the usb port
[6:49] <clever> let me fetch a link
[6:49] <botnut> and those are damn hard to make.. considering its soo small and im not an umpalumpa with tiny hands it's a daunting task to solder that

[6:49] <[-clever-]`ca> botnut: https://www.sparkfun.com/wish_lists/66243
[6:49] <niston> true
[6:50] <clever> using those parts, i was able to run my pi on wifi for a couple hours
[6:50] <clever> with battery level visible over SNMP
[6:50] <botnut> gotcha
[6:50] <botnut> we use a different component that steps down the voltage from the lipo
[6:51] <clever> only issue, the fuel guage board uses VBAT for i2c pullup
[6:51] <botnut> so we run it with a lipo of 11.1v stepped down to something the pi likes
[6:51] <clever> which would damage the pi
[6:51] <botnut> while powering other components without stepping down
[6:51] <clever> so i had to cut a trace, and use the pi 3.3v as pullup
[6:53] <botnut> we just use this
[6:53] <botnut> http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B008BHB4L8/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o06_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1

[7:37] <mortal> no idea
[7:38] <shiftplusone> armv7 debian is not any faster

[9:06] * shiftplusone is forced to use an ISO rather than an ANSI keyboard.
[9:06] <shiftplusone> So my typing is all derpy
[9:06] <TyrfingMjolnir> ISO vs ANSI?
[9:06] <TyrfingMjolnir> ISO is the european one with amputated left SHIFT?
[9:07] <ShorTie> l@@ks like a gimmick to reduce production cost and increase the price
[9:07] <shiftplusone> european vs american. One has a long shift key on the left and a long enter on the right. The other has a short shift, an extra key and a tall enter
[9:07] <shiftplusone> there are probably more differences but those are the annoying ones to me
[9:07] <shiftplusone> yeh
[9:08] <TyrfingMjolnir> I really liked the MacBook keyboards that had separate enter and return button

[9:13] <shiftplusone> I bought a logitech keyboard with a US layout, but it ended up being an ISO one with a US keymap, meaning the \ key is in two places and the layout is still something I'm not used to so.... that was a waste of money >.>
[9:13] <niston> haha xD

[9:16] <niston> \o
[9:16] <SirLagz> It has the ANSI enter and shift, and the altgr of the ISO keyboard...IIRC
[9:17] <niston> what does alt gr even mean?

[9:18] <niston> try alt gr and 8

[10:34] <niston> ah I see it now
[10:34] <niston> dunno about it
[10:34] <niston> but still, USB not the route of choice for sound output on Pi
[10:35] <Tazmain> its still rca and 3.5mm jack just gets power from usb as well
[10:35] <niston> the point is how the digital sound data is transferred from Pi to DAC
[10:35] <niston> Pi has a dedicated interface called I2S for this
[10:37] <niston> using it will be beneficial because a) less overhead and CPU load and b) no additional load on the one and only USB channel the Pi has
[10:38] <Tazmain> I guess, unless you using an external sound card right ? Like a studio sound card that has its own timing crystal ?
[10:38] <clever> i2s supplies the timing from the pi
[10:39] <Tazmain> that might be but studio audio card are better than any pc based one
[10:39] <qubitnerd> i saw in the schematics that the RCA tv connector is labelled DAC
[10:39] <niston> video DAC
[10:39] <qubitnerd> can that DAC be hacked ?
[10:39] <niston> yeah
[10:39] <niston> phire I think has done something with it
[10:39] <clever> ali1234 has modified it to output teletext
[10:39] <niston> or yeah
[10:39] <niston> ali1234
[10:39] <clever> EU subtitles over PAL video
[10:40] <niston> phire was the alpha tester :)
[10:40] <Tazmain> well I think considering the shipping issues and back log in SA I will rather use my pi2 for a hardware add block for time being

[10:42] <clever> qubitnerd: havent figured out enough for that yet
[10:42] <qubitnerd> ah okay
[10:42] <clever> we can freely control the level for each scan-line, and somewhat modify the number and lenght of the scan lines
[10:42] <clever> but something else is inserting v-sync, h-sync and color burst automaticaly
[10:43] <clever> and you would have to encode the audio as grey levels on the display, including interlacing 2 full frames of audio

[10:55] <Tazmain> you said "but of course they're not giving away windows 10 for the desktop for all pi users" implying that some will get it
[10:55] <shiftplusone> not by my interpretation
[10:55] <niston> expecting Metro GUI? orly?

[11:04] <clever> exactly
[11:04] <Tazmain> I've been wanting to buy a pi for a year now, but could never figure out what I will do with it

[11:08] <clever> how does it do such a feat?
[11:08] <shiftplusone> ahm.... you can do all that with debian/raspbian.
[11:08] <shiftplusone> linux is linux
[11:08] <Tazmain> I have no seen debian run on it
[11:08] <Triffid_Hunter> Tazmain: gentoo is similar. I use gentoo, haven't tried arch so can't compare them

[11:10] <Triffid_Hunter> Tazmain: compiling anything on a pi is a fool's errand, that's what crossdev is for :P

[11:11] <Tazmain> yeah but firewire is dying a slow death lol
[11:11] <clever> Triffid_Hunter: but can a crossdev crosscompiler be used via distcc?
[11:11] <Triffid_Hunter> clever: yes
[11:11] <Tazmain> niston, think that will work ?
[11:11] <clever> Triffid_Hunter: how hard is that to setup?
[11:12] <niston> it could work. but I don't recommend it.
[11:12] <Triffid_Hunter> clever: not hard actually, distcc always uses the full tuple so as long as your cross is in distcc's path it'll find it
[11:12] <clever> Triffid_Hunter: ive also noticed another really painfull bug with distcc
[11:12] <clever> distcc+avahi+ipv6 == breakage

[11:15] <clever> and the specs dont seem very open
[11:15] <shiftplusone> clever, nope, but I got carried away with something else. Setting up my sd card with the image + minimal buildroot initramfs and USB rootfs. Using the mechanism from NOOBS to switch between them.
[11:15] <clever> heh, i get easily distracted too
[11:16] <niston> clever: you'll have to sign up with their club I think
[11:16] <shiftplusone> and trying to figure out why my router isn't resolving local hosts for me.
[11:16] <clever> niston: thats the kind of thing i'm trying to avoid
[11:16] <shiftplusone> and might go grab some tea and cake >.>
[11:16] <niston> well
[11:16] <niston> I think it could work on the Ethernet layer
[11:16] <niston> just leave IP out of it
[11:16] <niston> (to roll your own)
[11:17] <clever> niston: i was thinking of something based on rtp

[11:17] <niston> isn't that too jittery for studio quality?
[11:17] <clever> i dont see udp+rtp having any more overhead then ethernet
[11:17] <clever> just a few bytes more per packet
[11:17] <niston> depends on the stack I guess
[11:18] <niston> I mean the quality
[11:18] <clever> part of the plan is to not vendor-lock the client system
[11:18] <clever> support all the OS's!
[11:18] <niston> noble plan.
[11:18] <clever> ive heard the horror storyes of how much crap you have to turn off in windows just to get the jitter under control
[11:19] <clever> and avahi makes discovering the device trivial
[11:19] <clever> but i can barely get DHCP to work in an FPGA
[11:20] <clever> state engines and massively parallel stuff are hard to force onto such a serialized setup
[11:20] <niston> clever: thinking about implementing it on an FPGA?
[11:20] <clever> the audio capture will go on an FPGA
[11:20] * dan64 (~dan64@dannyadam.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[11:20] <clever> but the controller will maybe be a raspberry pi
[11:20] <niston> interesting project for sure
[11:21] <clever> basicaly, ethernet MII <-> FPGA <-> rpi
[11:21] <niston> but why not straight Ethernet?
[11:21] <clever> at startup, the FPGA acts as a simple network card, giving the pi network (it can be a model-a or compute module)
[11:21] * factor (97c1d518@gateway/web/freenode/ip. Quit (Ping timeout: 246 seconds)
[11:21] <clever> the pi will use dhcp and avahi to advertise itself on the lan

[11:22] * cameronf_ (~cameronfr@ has joined #raspberrypi
[11:22] <niston> you could do in the FPGA
[11:22] <niston> for the others I think you need raw sockets which require root yes
[11:22] <clever> once the control signals are sent to the pi to enable it, the FPGA is configured on what channels to stream, along with hte ip config
[11:23] * perkan (~neosmo@ has joined #raspberrypi
[11:23] <clever> the FPGA will inject all the data into the MII, bypassing the pi
[11:23] <clever> and will filter&handle any incoming audio, so the pi is out of the bandwidth loop
[11:23] <niston> so no network stack with nondeterministic latency problems
[11:23] <niston> yeah
[11:24] <niston> sounds like a plan
[11:24] <clever> yeah, all of the high bandwidth and jitter sensitive stuff goes directly to the MII
[11:24] <clever> so the only place you can mess up is the network stack of the master control box
[11:24] <clever> which can be any OS
[11:24] <clever> pick whatever OS and card suits your needs
[11:24] <niston> be sure to send a few prototypes my way ;)
[11:25] <clever> once things are setup more then a total nest of wires, lol

[11:27] <clever> the first stage is ~70mbit of usage on a 100mbit MII
[11:27] <clever> in theory, you could gang 10 of those modules together on a gigabit switch
[11:27] <clever> and then run them into a single gigabit port on the host

[11:31] <clever> ever seen what the chromecast can do?
[11:31] * nimoot (~HomoSapie@unaffiliated/toomin) has joined #raspberrypi
[11:31] <niston> nope
[11:32] <clever> for support websites/apps (like youtube), it will just take the url, send it directly to the chromecast
[11:32] <clever> and just play it there, skiping your pc entirely
[11:32] <niston> ah
[11:33] <clever> for unsupported things like netflix, it will basicaly stream your monitor in real-time
[11:33] <niston> yeah
[11:33] <clever> so it re-compresses the video, and streams it over
[11:33] <clever> the android/ps3 youtube/netflix app do the same thing
[11:33] <clever> both android apps act as a remote-control for their ps3 counterpart
[11:34] <clever> my isp then went the brain-dead way for their streaming services :P
[11:34] <niston> heh
[11:34] <clever> you must install the IPAD version of 'twonky beam' on an APPLE device

[12:08] <Vulcano> can u please tell me more detailed. im really green on this linux
[12:08] <clever> there are so few, you can just delete them by hand
[12:08] <Stephini> clever so basically it's not that my idea is bad. just that there is a more efficient way to get the same result?
[12:08] <clever> Stephini: yeah
[12:09] * Cavedude (~Cavedude@unaffiliated/cavedude) has joined #raspberrypi
[12:09] <Vulcano> ok, tell me what command I use to remove then I will do it
[12:09] <clever> for example, rm eggInstaller
[12:09] <clever> Vulcano: use rm to delete files
[12:10] <Vulcano> can i use rm to delete folders too?
[12:10] * oxhak (~OxHaK@unaffiliated/oxhak) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[12:10] <clever> use rm -r to delete folders
[12:10] <Stephini> rm -R will clear a folder with contents i think rmdir if it's empty. no?
[12:10] <ShorTie> nop, need a -rf in there for folders
[12:10] <Stephini> or i guess just rm -r works.
[12:10] <clever> dont need -f for folders
[12:11] <clever> thats only if some nasty person left some read-only things in the way
[12:11] <ShorTie> ok.

[12:14] <Vulcano> ok guys ive cleaned up the worst. I installed Tcllib earlier, can I now remove all those tcl files in this pic? http://gyazo.com/17eb891f5354d2eda3086245968dc6f4
[12:15] <Stephini> ShorTie, just tryina get a button to fit it's new housing. 3/8 is apparently to snug. if i'm right and it's 7/16 then that sucks cause that's an 8 dollar(no shipping factored) drillbit.
[12:16] <ShorTie> take your calapiers and measure to get correct size needed
[12:16] <pksato> Vulcano: yes, can be deleted these files. But, you done some very wrong or not necessary procedure.

[12:17] <Vulcano> what i do?
[12:18] <Vulcano> i only removed eggdrop stuff
[12:19] <Vulcano> can someone pls explain?
[12:20] <pksato> you want to remove tcllib? or delete source files?
[12:20] <Vulcano> im just asking if i can remove all those tcllib files without actually removing it
[12:20] <Vulcano> if u understand
[12:21] <Vulcano> i need the functionality, but can i delete those files?
[12:21] <pksato> files on pic can be removed. but it not uninstall tcllib.
[12:21] <Vulcano> so then I will remove all those tcllib files and still have the functionality
[12:21] <Vulcano> sorry if im a little slow
[12:22] <pksato> or tcl
[12:22] <Vulcano> ok
[12:22] <pksato> or other program/lib that installed using source.
[12:22] <Vulcano> ill give it a shot and report back
[12:22] <pksato> some have unistall procedure on Makefile, but not all.

[15:49] <Stephini> ahh
[15:49] <Bilby> your problem is with no solder braid you'll have to get all 4 pins hot at the same time
[15:51] <Sonny_Jim> Use solder to heat the pin, not the tip
[15:51] <Sonny_Jim> So after cleaning the tip, put a little solder on there
[15:55] <Stephini> ok they moved your advice worked but then when they got flush they got stuck again and there is no pin to heat anymore.
[15:56] <Sonny_Jim> What are you trying to remove?
[15:56] <Stephini> male jumper header from an old motherboard to put on the pi to make a reset button.
[15:57] <Sonny_Jim> Just buy one from maplins

[16:51] <Sonny_Jim> I had my friends with their shiny new digi-boxes going "Look, it's so much better" when in 90% of cases it actually looked worse due to compression artifacts
[16:51] <Bilby> I had a sony trinitron computer monitor and a trinitron tv, they were awesome
[16:51] <Bilby> and especially for video games designed to play on tube TVs or with SD I think they look better
[16:52] <Stephini> also figured out why they got stuck when the iron was no longer touching the pins. apparently the space between board and pin is loose enough for some of the solder i used to bleed through and harden on the farside fo the board. :P

[16:53] <Sonny_Jim> Stephini: Yes, there's a copper 'sleeve' that connects the two sides the board
[16:53] <thescatman_> I think you guys are missing out the big issue with CRTs
[16:53] <thescatman_> SQUEEEEEEEEE
[16:53] <Sonny_Jim> Flyback noise?
[16:54] <Sonny_Jim> Clean all the dust off the back of the tube to stop the corona
[16:54] <Stephini> Sonny_Jim, the lesson was more that solder is way less viscous then i thought it was. With how snug it is I had no idea it could flow through there. I know water can't get through a gap that small.
[16:54] <thescatman_> yus
[16:54] <Stephini> thescatman_, yes i cat even walk through the hall near my daughter's room when she has her crt tv on.
[16:55] <thescatman_> it gives me a migraine within minutes
[16:55] <Stephini> even brand new CRTs give me headaches
[16:55] <quantumfoam> HA
[16:55] <quantumfoam> I got motion working
[16:55] <Stephini> and then there is the weird fact that unlike LCDs. the mute on CRTs isn't silent. you can still hear the program it's just reduced to like 5 volume units.
[16:55] <quantumfoam> mjpg looks like crap
[16:55] <quantumfoam> but it works!
[16:57] <Stephini> hey how exactly do you put a heatsynk on the pi? i have 2 heatsinks i salvaged off of this mobo but it's not like there are mounting holes or anything.
[16:57] <Bilby> Stephini audio control is going to be a function of the logic board in the TV. I've never had that experience, and wouldn't expect to
[16:58] <thescatman_> Stephini: thermal paste?
[16:58] <thescatman_> if you've got any
[16:58] <Sonny_Jim> Don't bother
[16:58] <Stephini> Bilby every single CRT i've ever been near when muted gave that.
[16:58] <Bilby> Stephini you put them on a shelf next to the pi, and say "Man, i'm glad i didn't waste any time putting heat sinks on this device which definitely doesn't need them"
[16:58] <Sonny_Jim> ^
[16:58] <thescatman_> They helped with temps on my pi...
[16:58] <Sonny_Jim> I can only echo Bilbys comment, the Pi does not need a heatsink
[16:58] <Stephini> Bilby, so if you overclock there is no heat concerns atall?
[16:58] <Sonny_Jim> Not for me
[16:59] <theugster> What if he's overclocking to 5GHz? You guys and your assumptions!
[16:59] <Bilby> Mine is overclocked all the way, covered with a tea towel, and has been running for 1+ week with no heat problems
[16:59] <Bilby> theugster then hopefully he's running a liquid nitrogen build :P
[16:59] <thescatman_> I had it at 1.3/1.4, heatsinks dropped the temps around 15-20c iirc
[16:59] <theugster> Indeed!
[16:59] <Sonny_Jim> The Pi will be fine all the way up to 85c
[16:59] <thescatman_> Am actually attempting to make the equivalent of an ln2 pot for the pi 2 atm
[17:00] <Stephini> Bilby, doesn't heat also matter based on what your doing? i mean just because you overclock to a cirtain setting doesn't mean it runs at that setting. that's just the new cap. right?
[17:00] <Bilby> thescatman_ unless the pi is outside normal living environment, the temp drop isn't needed
[17:00] <theugster> Stephini: Arctic Silver (and others I'm sure) sell a thermal paste/adhesive for such things
[17:00] <thescatman_> if they're lying around though, what's the harm?
[17:00] <Sonny_Jim> I mean, it's your Pi, do what you want. But I'm telling you a heatsink is completely uneeded
[17:00] <thescatman_> I mean if it drops it from 90c to 70 that's enough, it got bloody hot at 1.5
[17:01] <Sonny_Jim> thescatman_: Have you ever seen your Pi go over 70c though?
[17:01] <thescatman_> yes...

[17:28] <Stephini> hrm he seems to be saying that doing it the way i was thinking would cause to much interference. http://www.raspberry-pi-geek.com/Archive/2013/01/Adding-an-On-Off-switch-to-your-Raspberry-Pi
[17:28] <Bilby> You probably want something to pull the pin low, just initialize the pin with the internal pull-down resistor
[17:28] <pksato> ohh... five million of rpies eating electrons...
[17:29] <Stephini> ... please remember i'm both a pi newb and an ee newb. huhwah? how would i use an internal pulldown?
[17:29] <Bilby> are you building the shutdown swithc or the reset swithc?
[17:29] <Stephini> already did reset now i'm doing shutdown
[17:29] <Bilby> yep, problem is float
[17:30] <Bilby> when you have a logic input pin, it's looking for one of two states - HIGH or LOW
[17:30] <Stephini> k he said the fix was a pulldown you said there is a pulldown on the board that can be used. so i just need to know how to use that and i should be good aslong as i dont set output as he says. right?

[17:39] <Stephini> Bilby, are you limited to how many pins you can do that for?
[17:39] <heller\> according to the srf08 datasheet, it says "ranging mode - result in cm" is decimal: 81 or hex 0x51
[17:39] <Bilby> It doesn't look like it

[17:53] <Sonny_Jim> https://projects.drogon.net/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/nes-controller-schematic.png
[17:53] <Sonny_Jim> That's because it's a diagram of the internals of the NES controller
[17:53] <Sonny_Jim> Not how you should hook it up
[17:54] <Sonny_Jim> It's there so you can understand how the controller works
[17:54] * sivteck (~sivteck@unaffiliated/sivteck) has joined #raspberrypi
[17:55] <Stephini> i'm guessing those Ts represent the physical buttons then? the left is common ground and the right is where signals cross output on the chip to be turned into a serial signal?
[17:55] <Sonny_Jim> Sure
[17:56] <Sonny_Jim> But in your case you can pretty much ignore it apart from the bit that tells you what colour wire does what
[17:56] <Stephini> to me a diagram showing the actual layout of the circuit makes so much more sense than this flowchart stuff.
[17:56] <Sonny_Jim> ha
[17:56] <Sonny_Jim> It's a schematic
[17:56] <Sonny_Jim> Learn how to read schematics and you'll say the opposite
[17:57] <Sonny_Jim> And it *is* a layout of the circuit, not a flowchart
[17:58] <Stephini> it's more like a flowchart. it's more theoretical like a flowchart. if i have the PCB in front of me it makes sense. but this has all the lines made "orderly" in a way that hurts my head.

[17:59] <Sonny_Jim> *than
[18:00] <Sonny_Jim> Oh the other thing about that NES code is that it doesn't actually interface with the standard Linux joystick driver AFAICS
[18:01] <Sonny_Jim> It'll print something out when you press a button but that's about it
[18:01] <Stephini> ahh so i need to tweak his code to act as either keyboard or joystick.
[18:01] <Sonny_Jim> Well, I'd just use someone elses that does interface with the joystick driver
[18:02] <Sonny_Jim> Like the RetroPie one
[18:02] <Stephini> that'll work as long as the retropie one doens't only work for the retropie adapter chip.
[18:03] <Sonny_Jim> git.drogon.net/wiringPi
[18:03] <Sonny_Jim> Erk wrong link
[18:03] <Sonny_Jim> The chip is only a buffer on the RetroPie
[18:03] <Sonny_Jim> https://github.com/petrockblog/SNESDev-RPi
[18:03] <Sonny_Jim> It'll work fine without it as long as you use the same GPIO pins

[18:12] <Sonny_Jim> From memory, the clock can be the same, the latch and data will be different
[18:14] <Sonny_Jim> Nope, sorry. Clock and latch can be the same pin, you need a separate data pin for 2 controllers
[18:15] * Macuser (~textual@unaffiliated/macuser) has joined #raspberrypi
[18:16] <Sonny_Jim> Erk, let me say that a little bit clearer

[18:17] <Sonny_Jim> Sending a latch signal to the controllers tells the 4021 to 'freeze' the input so it can't be changed whilst it's being read
[18:17] <Sonny_Jim> Then you pulse the clock line to the controllers which make them send out data to the data pin
[18:18] <Sonny_Jim> so latch/clock are outputs from the Pi to the controllers, data is input to the Pi from the controllers

[18:42] <djazz> openelec has its own very nice easy installer
[18:42] <thyrth> Oh?
[18:43] <Sonny_Jim> I think the general consensus is if you don't have any particular preference, start with Rasbian as it's the most supported

[20:11] <bynarie> i dont see a point in running windows on pi either
[20:11] <pksato> Win10 have a CLI? :)
[20:11] <pksato> on this context.
[20:12] <bynarie> im sure it has a "command prompt"
[20:12] <Sonny_Jim> From what I can gather, it's basically MS desperately trying to expand from the desktop market, as they've been outdone in both mobile and server markets for some time now
[20:12] <bynarie> but i wouldnt call it CLI
[20:12] <Sonny_Jim> Hell, MS even support Open Source now....

[20:53] <vanila> (I tried with qemu but I got a segfault)
[20:53] <bynarie> u can prolly cross compile for it.. dunno bout emulation tho
[20:53] <ShorTie> it's like p,d,2,n, , ,startof2, ,w

[21:13] <IT_Sean> Yes
[21:13] <WACOMalt> PigFlu, yes
[21:14] <WACOMalt> if it turns off ever it means you have low power
[21:14] <[Saint]> leio: are you relatively new to the pi then? Modern kernels without immense pissing around wasn't a thing there either until rather recently.
[21:14] <IT_Sean> PigFlu: the Power LED indicates that the Pi is plugged in to... wait for it... power.
[21:14] <PigFlu> mine is flashing sporadically, could it be a bad usb cable? the power supply is legit
[21:14] <WACOMalt> yes
[21:14] <IT_Sean> [Saint]: Language policy, please.
[21:14] <[Saint]> IT_Sean: really? That's...well. Ok.
[21:14] <[Saint]> Whatevs.
[21:14] <IT_Sean> Thanks :)
[21:14] <IT_Sean> PigFlu: a flashing LED could be a squiffy PSU
[21:14] <[Saint]> I'm intimately aware of the policy, you guys just have vastly different views on what'f family friendly.
[21:15] <[Saint]> ANd its aggrivating as almighty hell.
[21:15] <PigFlu> no, the supply is good, but the cable is from ebay
[21:15] <PigFlu> i better go into town and buy an expensive one i guess ;_;
[21:15] <WACOMalt> PigFlu, test the outputs
[21:15] <WACOMalt> at the supply and the cord
[21:15] <WACOMalt> unless the cord is literally shorting out it seems odd that it'd be the issue
[21:15] <PigFlu> then i have to cut open the cable..
[21:15] <Bilby> PigFlu do you have any charer cords for laptops?
[21:15] <PigFlu> no
[21:16] <WACOMalt> plugs and ports have metal contacts :)
[21:16] * Bilby is using a blackberry micro-usb cord
[21:16] <WACOMalt> no need to cut open
[21:16] <PigFlu> how would i probe the end that is plugged into the usb adapter ._.
[21:16] <WACOMalt> mine is a chromecast power adapter and some asus tablet charge cord
[21:16] <WACOMalt> no issue
[21:16] <WACOMalt> PigFlu, well, you cant, but shouldnt need to
[21:16] <[Saint]> I dunno man. Some cheap USb cables are made from tinsel, or vinegar soaked string.
[21:16] <thyrth> I wish there was a desktop with arch to install a desktop for rasberry pi
[21:16] <[Saint]> They're definitely not all created equally.
[21:16] <WACOMalt> if its cood one the port on the power supply, and bad on the end of the cord
[21:16] <WACOMalt> then its the cord
[21:17] <WACOMalt> if its bad at both, then its the power supply
[21:17] <IT_Sean> WACOMalt: PigFlu: cheap USB cables can cause issues.
[21:17] <PigFlu> i use the same supply and cable to charge my phone every night, so it seems very strange indeed
[21:17] <WACOMalt> (and/or the cord)
[21:17] <IT_Sean> and phones and such are a bit more tolerant of icky power
[21:17] <WACOMalt> IT_Sean, ah, I've never had one cause a drop or anything. I;ve only had them not work, or work
[21:17] <PigFlu> i'll try another cable
[21:18] <PigFlu> however, i only noticed the blinking after 2 days of using the pi.. it didnt seem to affect its operation in any way
[21:18] <IT_Sean> WACOMalt: if the cable can't carry sufficient current, the Pi can drop out under load.
[21:18] <WACOMalt> ODROID-C1, does it have HDMI?
[21:18] <Bilby> that is really, really strange PigFlu
[21:18] <PigFlu> well, it's true
[21:18] <WACOMalt> The Pi is pretty tolerant too. just it lets you know if its icky power

[21:19] <[Saint]> it is, yes.
[21:19] <PigFlu> someone tried charging their iphone with a cable i bought on ebay, and the iphone said it wasnt a legit cable and refused to charge

[21:20] <[Saint]> (something the pi needed, IMO)
[21:20] <WACOMalt> PigFlu, some cables are made for 2 amps, some for 1, some for .5

[21:23] <bynarie> i just fired my pi 2 up for the first time.. its pretty decent
[21:23] <[Saint]> Even if the ODROID C1 didn't have a lot of other tasty bits, gigE sealed the deal for my use case.
[21:23] <[Saint]> I imagine others don't care about that, though.
[21:23] <WACOMalt> I do. I was looking at Bananapi for that reason
[21:24] <WACOMalt> GB and SATA
[21:24] <WACOMalt> boom, NAS
[21:24] <[Saint]> I wouldn;t get that thing on principle.
[21:24] <WACOMalt> ?
[21:24] <[Saint]> It just rides off the back of the RPF entirely.
[21:24] <[Saint]> Its kinda dirty.
[21:24] <WACOMalt> open source
[21:24] <WACOMalt> it happens, and it's to some degree the point
[21:25] <bynarie> WACOMalt, udoo has sata support, arduino built in and 4x powerful than a pi
[21:25] <bynarie> its a bit pricey for a mini pc tho
[21:25] <[Saint]> Well, yeah, while that's true - its still dirty. They even stole the "*pi" moniker.
[21:25] <[Saint]> They're clearly not trying to distance themselves. At all.
[21:25] <WACOMalt> udoo is also $99 for the cheapest
[21:26] <bynarie> yea
[21:26] <bynarie> thats for the dual core

[21:32] <bynarie> welp, im going back into android mode
[21:33] <[Saint]> It is far too easy to craft a "trojan horse" USB stick. Its not even funny how easy it is. Especially considering Windows will inherently trust anything that presents itself as a USB keyboard.
[21:33] <bynarie> [Saint], thats for sure true
[21:33] <[Saint]> We get "free samples" sent to us at work all the time.
[21:33] <IT_Sean> Yeah, well... Windows... ::eyeroll::
[21:33] <bynarie> thank god i dont use windows anymore

[21:37] <ali1234> personally i think the fact that any USB device can impersonate any other USB device in order to exploit hypothetical bugs in its drivers is worse than the keyboard hole
[21:37] <[Saint]> Like we'll just go "Oh, hey, sweet - free USB storage! Lets just plug that right in to our definitely, definitely, totally not network segregated and sandboxed machines shall we!"
[21:37] <ali1234> because you are going to notice if the computer starts typing on it's own

[21:37] <Tachyon`> the USB keyboard hole isn't a hole, it's working as designed
[21:37] * Stellar_Mind (~stap@ has joined #raspberrypi
[21:37] <[Saint]> ali1234: well, yes and no, it only needs to say its a keyboard to slip through the "trust" chain.
[21:37] <ali1234> where as the attackers only need to find one bug in one driver - ANY USB driver at all - and they can exploit it
[21:37] <[Saint]> It needn't act as one.
[21:38] * WLL (~WLL@unaffiliated/wll) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[21:38] <[Saint]> It needn't actually do any phantom typing, it just needs to report as a keyboard for the system to trust it automagically, which is...frankly braindead.
[21:38] <ali1234> we need policies for USB either way. "this is the only keyboard that may connect, it may only connect on this port"
[21:38] <[Saint]> But, its how keyboards do.
[21:39] * x1337807x (~x1337807x@ has joined #raspberrypi
[21:39] <ali1234> keyboards can't do anything other than phantom typing... because they are keyboard
[21:39] <ali1234> unless there's a bug in the HID driver, which is quite plausible given how complex it is
[21:39] <[Saint]> We have a very fun "USB" policy here at work. Its called "Sellies No More Gaps"
[21:39] * Tachyon` is now known as Tach[away]
[21:39] <ali1234> but you could say that about any driver
[21:40] <SpeedEvil> ali1234: the fun part of that.
[21:40] <SpeedEvil> ali1234: Serial numbers on USB are optional
[21:40] <ali1234> yes
[21:40] <[Saint]> Well, what they're trying to do is capture keystrokes and then report back, usually over FM bands or BTLE.
[21:40] * x1337807x (~x1337807x@ Quit (Client Quit)
[21:40] <[Saint]> attacker gets one in the system, then does a drive by and tunes into the FM frequency preprogrammed.
[21:40] <[Saint]> Its all very low tech and very hit and miss.
[21:40] <bynarie> tbh, im not a n00b at all, but never heard of flash drive attacks before, but i also dont work in a datacenter
[21:41] <ali1234> SpeedEvil: yes hence why the policy must be per port as well
[21:41] <SpeedEvil> [Saint]: what industry are you in?
[21:41] <ali1234> because if you only have one port that works for a keyboard, and only one keyboard that works with it, you're basically never going to unplug that
[21:41] <[Saint]> I work at DataNZ, a large-ish data center that handles mass data and its processing for a lot of fields.
[21:41] <WACOMalt> I mean, to a layman, how often do you look at that "installing device driver" window and check if it only says "usb storage"?
[21:41] * x1337807x (~x1337807x@ has joined #raspberrypi

[21:44] <[Saint]> EVen if we managed to get all the gap filler out of the USB terminals on the machines here, we'd still need upper management to come in and activate the device with their keycard to upshift the permissions so it could actually do anything.

[22:47] <Bilby> p6 is a soft reboot iirc so the system is not shut down

[22:47] <Stephini> I'm basically wondering if using it risks damage to the FS like when you cold plug it.
[22:48] <WACOMalt> Anyone know which direction I should plug a ribbon cable into the pi2 (like which side the bump on the cord should be) to plug it into a pi cobbler?
[22:48] <e^ipi> red wire is pin0
[22:48] <[Saint]> Stephini: it does, yes.
[22:48] <Stephini> WACOMalt, wouldn't that depend on how the cable in question is threaded?
[22:48] <WACOMalt> I suppose it would
[22:49] <[Saint]> Stephini: to be honest, I think the best use of p6 isn't to reboot the device, but rather, to boot it back up from a shut-down-but-powered state.
[22:49] <[Saint]> that's how I was using it.
[22:49] <[Saint]> Shut down the device, and then use a switch on p6 to bring it back up again without having to re-plug power.
[22:49] <e^ipi> WACOMalt: it almost certainly is wired for the coloured wire being pin0, because that’s how ribbon cables work
[22:49] <[Saint]> Its, IMO, a fairly elegant solution.
[22:50] <Stephini> well i guess then it's a good thing the spot i put p6 is kind of out of the way.
[22:50] <[Saint]> But, yeah, it can work as a hard-reset button - but just like any hard reset you risk data loss/corruption.
[22:51] <[Saint]> I think the /best/ use of it is to bring the device back up if its shut down but still powered.

[22:52] <e^ipi> my pi is at home, but i believe that pin is towards the back of the board (ie, opposite to the usb ports)
[22:52] <Stephini> [Saint], to bad I cant build a circuit that uses the nes power button when i cut power it sends a halt command and when i re add power it sends a short pulse to p6.
[22:52] <[Saint]> I honestly can't understand why there's not a bottun there.
[22:52] <Stephini> that would be perfect.
[22:52] <[Saint]> It'd add a few cents to the BOM.

[22:53] * Keanu73__ is now known as Keanu73
[22:53] <[Saint]> in quantities like RPF would be using, putting a button on the p6 header would quite literally only have cost a few cents per board.

[22:54] <Bilby> There's lots they could have done that would have had minimal impact on the cost, but it all would have impacted it. consider that they didn't even have to expose that header - obviously they thought some but not all people would want it
[22:54] <[Saint]> Bilby: I think you would if you had a button there, personally. FOr instance, power down the device, leave it powered (ie. don't pull the plug), and then in future when you want to bring it back up, just push a button.
[22:54] <Stephini> [Saint], wouldn't a button be in the way of anyone wanting to use a case though? seems like having the jumper pins would be a better way to go.
[22:54] <[Saint]> You would use such a feature, I'm sure.
[22:54] * fatalhalt (~kyle@c-71-201-7-76.hsd1.il.comcast.net) Quit (Quit: fatal halt)
[22:54] <[Saint]> Plugging the finnicky little microUSB cable is painful.
[22:55] <[Saint]> Stephini: how so?
[22:55] <e^ipi> Bilby: there’s plenty they could do to make the cost cheaper too, the compute module is a perfect example of that. nix all the ports, solder them on if you want ‘em
[22:55] <Bilby> honestly if i'm experimenting ususally i just have the power supply on a surge protector and i flip the switch

[22:56] <Stephini> yeah but if you do a case build you hafta open the case to press the button your way. but if you do it my way where you have the jumpers you can attach a hard button or a FP button from a PC best ofr all cases.

[22:57] <[Saint]> Stephini: not so, I just drilled a hole in the case.
[22:57] <[Saint]> Similar to the type of reset buttons that almost all consumer electronics used to have.
[22:57] <[Saint]> paperclip, boom.
[22:57] <Stephini> ok so you gotta shove your finger in the case. still inconvenient when i can wire a button TO the case.
[22:57] <[Saint]> nope.
[22:58] <Stephini> ok you need paper clip.
[22:58] <Stephini> i had typed before you said how you had it. :P
[22:58] <Bilby> true... and that's without the dev board, yeah?
[22:58] <Stephini> it's still less convenient than having a button ON the case.
[22:58] <Bilby> if you need to reboot
[22:58] <Bilby> which, hypothetically... hopefully... should be a rare occurence
[22:58] <[Saint]> on a few of my raspis I put the button on the underside of the board and drilled a slightly larger hold, and it was easily accessible from the case exterior and not physically coupled to the case at all.,
[22:59] <[Saint]> having the button on the case is highly inconvenient, IMO.
[22:59] <[Saint]> But, meh.
[22:59] <[Saint]> s/hold/hole/
[22:59] <Stephini> but you are missing my point. if they put a hard button ON the case that limits the options of the consumer. Instead they could put the jumper there and let us choose what to plug into it in 3 seconds flat.
[22:59] <[Saint]> it also coun't be pressed accidentally due to being on the underside of the case.
[23:00] * Bilby is pretty sure we're all just replicating an argument the Raspi foundation had about 3 years ago...

[23:02] <Stephini> with my system idealy it will be halted when not in use since it's effectively a games console. So i dont want to have to reach ALL the way into an NES case to press a button on the pi itself. so to me jumper pins are far supperior and at the same time can meet your needs by allowing you to slot a button or switch right onto the jumper ont eh board itself.

[23:10] <Stephini> Bilby, you aren't actually reading what i'm saying. :P I know how to shutdown and turn on. my point is how inconvenient having P6 a switch soldered on the board was since my intent is to use P6 to unhalt while my board is 6 inches away from where my hand could even enter the build.

[23:18] <[Saint]> Stephini: you can easily have a button on the underside of the board *and* a 2-pin jumper to break it out to the exterior of any case you desire.
[23:19] <e^ipi> are you guys for real still arguing about this?
[23:19] <[Saint]> My point was that not adding a button that would vastly increase functionality for the outlay of a few cents (if that) per board seemed a weird decision.
[23:19] <e^ipi> the world is as it is
[23:19] <Stephini> [Saint], true but wouldn't it be cheaper just to have the jumpers and let people install their own button options? since this is meant to be the uber cheap computer?
[23:19] <WACOMalt> Berryboot says making an img of my install is too big for the filesystem... what can I do now?
[23:19] <Stephini> e^ipi, discussing not arguing
[23:20] <[Saint]> Stephini: sure, but, we're really talking about a few cents.
[23:20] <[Saint]> and, yes, there's no argument here.
[23:20] <[Saint]> Its a discussion.
[23:20] <Stephini> i dont get why when i have a casual discussion with people about theories on how things could be different people get up in arms about how we should be happy with how things are. i'm not even upset with the status quo gnerally but it can be fun to theorize and discuss alternatives.

[23:27] * denete_ (~denete@ Quit (Ping timeout: 246 seconds)
[23:28] <[Saint]> I understand cutting costs at all available opportunity, but, honestly I suspect a lot of people aren't even using the GPIO headers, so you could fairly easily make that completely optional.
[23:29] <Stephini> while you are right that alot of people aren't for sure (kodi and retropie users who dont go nuts on builds the way i do) but the target audience is definatly getting good use of the GPIO. in fact it's the only thing my sister's class really did with their pis.
[23:30] <Bilby> iirc one of the design goals was to make a BBC... whatsit microcomputer for the new generation
[23:30] <[Saint]> Right, so in that vein, its not entirely unrealistic to have p6 populated with a header as well then.

[23:31] <Stephini> youd think kids learning on it could really make use of some way to turn it back on after halting it.
[23:31] <[Saint]> I understand meeting a very specific price point, but this is hardly adding anything of noteable worth to the BOM.
[23:31] <[Saint]> Especially in the quantities they're produced in.
[23:31] <[Saint]> Stephini: precisely
[23:32] <[Saint]> especially considering how many people end up knocking the smoothing cap off the board when plugging/re-plugging that godawful microUSB.
[23:32] <Stephini> ok i keep seing that acronym but i cant place it. i get what it means based on context but the exact meaning evades me. i'm used to seing PPC(price per capita) the way you keep using BOM

[23:35] <[Saint]> But, yeah, I would posit that having either a header that people could easily slot a push button onto, and/or a surface mount dome button on the underside of the board, would _greatly_ reduce the amount of smoothing caps that get knocked off the board, and the amount of microUSB power socket deaths.

[23:36] <Stephini> i have been thinking about the button on the bottom. wouldn't a dome switch on the bottom be really easy to trigger if you bumped the pi which alot of people just lay out on the counter?
[23:36] <[Saint]> Stephini: http://www.raspberrypi.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/09/sony-rasp-pi.jpg <-- bottom left
[23:36] <[Saint]> big round drum cap, right behind the microUSB
[23:37] <[Saint]> People use it as leverage to pull the cable.
[23:37] <Stephini> hrm dont think mine has that anywhere near the micro usb. maybe that's one of the things they fixxed in the +s?
[23:37] <[Saint]> The pi will work without it, but if you have a noisey PSU, ...things can get ugly.
[23:38] <[Saint]> yes, that's correct

[23:39] <Stephini> that's why i didn't recognize the issue. :P for me the issue is when i'm plugging and unplugging power i'm always worried i may zap something. Idealy if i lived alone i'd go all largo in a totally sterile fabric free room when working anywhere near PCBs of ANY kind.
[23:39] <Stephini> and yes i'm all kinds of paranoid and crazy. :P
[23:39] <[Saint]> just hold on to the eth port, or the edged of the baord.
[23:40] <[Saint]> The eth port casing is sheilded, and firmly anchored.
[23:40] <[Saint]> Ideally, just grip the edge of the board firmly.
[23:40] <Stephini> i figure these things. I just hate dealing with power and exposed PCBs even though i've not once in my life had SED.
[23:41] <[Saint]> But, /really/ ideally, you shouldn't have to remove the power cable and re-insert it to bring the device back up.
[23:41] <[Saint]> You can of course add an inline switch to the USB power cable.
[23:41] <[Saint]> But, that's fairly invasive and neddn't be something a user has to do.

[23:44] <Stephini> nvm that's the p6. :P weird that i wired the p6 but didnt' recognize it.
[23:44] <[Saint]> If I'm not mistaken, "run" is the functional equivalent of the p6 header on the older boards.
[23:45] <Stephini> so basically the b+ has much fewer unused connectors than the older models?
[23:49] <[Saint]> It does. I actually got one of my model B boards with the "unused" header in the middle populated.
