[15:42] <Tenkawa> let benny try.
[15:43] <NobCat> alsa mixer has a "gui" of soirts

[15:43] <NobCat> kk
[15:43] <NobCat> 1 sec benny-
[15:43] <NobCat> http://privatepaste.com/bee7d90248
[15:44] <NobCat> mic works, just audio out is being a massive ballache
[15:44] <benny-> and what exactly are you trying? didn't get the whole conversation
[15:44] <NobCat> Jasper
[15:44] <benny-> so this is a usb soundcard?
[15:44] <benny-> ^^
[15:44] <NobCat> its a usb mic, and onboard rpi sound
[15:44] <benny-> so you want to use the usb mic as input, and the rpi soundchip as output?
[15:45] <NobCat> yep

[15:46] <NobCat> kk
[15:46] <peetbog> this is why I like pulse better. I can't help him with jack. arecord is a great little recorder with lots of options. like NobCat said

[15:51] * zokeber (~zokeber@unaffiliated/zokeber) has joined #raspberrypi
[15:51] <benny-> ok
[15:51] <benny-> you can put the same content to /etc/asound.conf
[15:51] <benny-> and remove the .asoundrc
[15:51] <peetbog> you probably want to set the option to kick that up to 16 bits on your record.
[15:51] * airdisa_ (~airdisa@2602:306:cf50:9ba0:7de1:8dc3:e6fa:d87f) has joined #raspberrypi
[15:51] <benny-> so you have a global setup, not only userbased

[15:53] <NobCat> ok, ill do that now
[15:54] * morois (~morois@ Quit (Ping timeout: 265 seconds)
[15:54] <NobCat> benny-, how would i up it to 16bits?

[15:55] <peetbog> no "arecord --help" there are a ton of options. standard cd quality is 44,100 at 16 bits
[15:55] <benny-> i think your wavefile is 8bit @ 11kHz
[15:55] <SohamG> When I plug an ethernet cord into my pc, it does absolutely nothing....what do I do to resolve this? My aim is to share my internet connection(3g or wifi) to my rasp pi
[15:55] <benny-> did you record it? or is it just a test file?
[15:55] <NobCat> it was just a test file
[15:56] <NobCat> downloaded from some place
[15:56] <peetbog> oh, then nevermind. it will play what it was recorded at
[15:56] <benny-> ok, the info is about the file, not your playback/record device
[15:56] <benny-> so you can just ignore that :>
[15:56] <NobCat> ok
[15:56] <peetbog> I will go back to building my pi case. www.peetbog.com/pi_case.jpg
[15:56] <NobCat> cheers for the help
[15:57] <benny-> i love to mess with alsa :P
[15:57] <peetbog> It is jack that gives me grief.
[15:58] <benny-> jack/pulse are useless
[15:58] <benny-> they just add another useless layer
[15:58] <peetbog> On the raspian B+ I was able to remove it with sonic and install just pulse. had problems this time around with the pi2. seems I forgot a step
[15:59] <peetbog> pulse is a pretty neat sound server. I can deal with it. kde editions can ball stuff up.
[16:01] * morois (~morois@ has joined #raspberrypi
[16:02] <benny-> SohamG, which OS on the host which should share internet?
[16:02] <benny-> did the rpi got an ip/gateway/dns from the host?
[16:04] <SohamG> I have ubuntu 14.04 on my pc(the host). the prob is my pc doesnt see the connection, like it doesnt respond/care. I see the lights on the socket though
[16:05] <peetbog> I see I have to do something to make the launch button pi case more aesthetic. 10 people viewed, 0 comments. Introverted crowd or ugly case?
[16:05] <benny-> i don't know if the rpi has autocrossover
[16:05] <benny-> else you would need a crossed cable or a hub/switch between pi and pc
[16:05] <ppq> SohamG, you need to configure it with network-manager on the ubuntu pc
[16:06] * kamdard (~kamdard@pool-71-164-224-228.dllstx.fios.verizon.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[16:06] <SohamG> ppq, I did, but it doesnt connect, like my OS doesnt see the port! It's probably a driver issue, s what should I do?
[16:06] <ppq> SohamG, did you set up the internet connection sharing correctly?
[16:07] <ppq> that is not done automagically
[16:07] <SohamG> Yes! I did! I saw some tuts on the net and followed them!
[16:08] * Bozza (~Bozza@unaffiliated/bozza) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[16:09] * Bozza (~Bozza@unaffiliated/bozza) has joined #raspberrypi
[16:09] <SohamG> ppq, At this point(after doing tests), I am pretty sure its a driver issue. Can you help me in that regard?
[16:10] <ppq> i don't know much about that, sorry
[16:11] * morois (~morois@ Quit (Ping timeout: 250 seconds)
[16:11] * methuzla (~methuzla@dsl254-017-117.sea1.dsl.speakeasy.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[16:12] <benny-> can you connect to the pi from your hostmachine?
[16:13] <SohamG> benny-, um, that was my problem xP....No I cant. I cant connect to ANY ethernet connection!(host or client)
[16:15] * airdisa_ (~airdisa@2602:306:cf50:9ba0:7de1:8dc3:e6fa:d87f) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)

[16:16] <SohamG> benny-, I attempted to connect it to my router, but it didnt work. Same issue. Simply ignored by the OS
[16:17] <benny-> so please paste output of "ifconfig -a" on pastebin.com or something like thata

[16:21] <SohamG> benny-, Sorry I forget my pi had a static ip.....
[16:22] <SohamG> benny-, but the problem is, my pc doesnt say that it is connected to the pi...
[16:22] * yehnan (~yehnan@36-226-139-246.dynamic-ip.hinet.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[16:23] <benny-> so please paste the output of ifconfig from the host
[16:23] <benny-> it should be in the same subnet to connect to the rpi
[16:23] * SohamG (~soham@ has left #raspberrypi
[16:23] <benny-> and if you use static ip on the rpi you have also to set gateway and nameserver by hand
[16:24] * doomlord_1 (~textual@host86-184-8-221.range86-184.btcentralplus.com) Quit (Ping timeout: 250 seconds)
[16:24] <benny-> which would be somethink like "nameserver" in /etc/resolv.conf on rpi, where is the ip of the host which shares internet
[16:24] * morois (~morois@ has joined #raspberrypi
[16:24] <benny-> and you have to set route on the rpi by "route add default gw"
[16:24] <benny-> where is also the ip of your host

[16:37] * Tenkawa (~arakeen@unaffiliated/tenkawa) has joined #raspberrypi
[16:38] <Tenkawa> so.. anyone got any theories or know why noone has built a true sata interface addon for the rpi2 yet?
[16:38] <NobCat> because it will be hindered by the data throughput speed of the USB bus
[16:38] * lazl0w (~lazl0w@ has joined #raspberrypi
[16:39] <NobCat> might aswell just use a usb > sata cable
[16:39] <shiftplusone> Why would they? Using anything other than USB for high speed transfers is not trivial. It's easier to buy a board that actually meets your needs in the first place.
[16:39] <Tenkawa> NobCat: thats what I do now
[16:39] <Tenkawa> shiftplusone: wasnt sure if there may have been unutilized bus capabilty for it
[16:39] <Tenkawa> guess not
[16:40] <shiftplusone> there is, but it's not easy or cheap to use.
[16:41] <Tenkawa> the not cheap part doesnt bother me ... however is the "not easy" part mass doable?
[16:41] <shiftplusone> doable for who? I've spent a few months on it with all of the documentation available to me without getting very far.

[16:42] <Tenkawa> ie a collabera.. etc

[16:42] <Tenkawa> nod
[16:42] <shiftplusone> I think it would have to be broadcom
[16:42] <Tenkawa> oh well :)
[16:42] <methuzla> what does the slice media player use for attaching the HDD? (maybe it's just USB, but don't know)
[16:42] <shiftplusone> or someone very dedicated
[16:43] * Wec (~Perkele@a450-83-150-119-246.nebulazone.fi) Quit (Quit: DSMOS has arrived)
[16:43] <shiftplusone> methuzla, it is indeed a usb to sata bridge
[16:43] <Tenkawa> sata -> usb will just have to suffice
[16:43] <Tenkawa> which is really the case for me.. was just curious thouhh
[16:43] <Tenkawa> er though
[16:44] <Tenkawa> I just realized I need a few more sata-usb bridges
[16:44] <Tenkawa> I'm 3 short
[16:44] <Tenkawa> oops

[16:48] * ozzzy just ran out and got an enclosure for one of the ssds
[16:48] <Tenkawa> heheheeeh
[16:48] <ozzzy> I'll use it to move files around
[16:48] <Tenkawa> now now.... trying to do things the "organized" way??
[16:48] <Tenkawa> thats no fun :)
[16:48] <ozzzy> nope... but I don't have any USB sticks (well... some 1G ones)
[16:49] <Tenkawa> hehehe
[16:49] <Tenkawa> I'm trying to decide which 3 ssd's to use
[16:49] <ozzzy> don't need one for the pi... it has lots of space
[16:50] * veonik_ is now known as veonik
[16:50] <Tenkawa> think I might go 64/74/128
[16:50] <Tenkawa> er 64/64/128
[16:50] <Tenkawa> since I dont have 3 64s
[16:50] <Tenkawa> my 256 got repurposed
[16:51] <Tenkawa> and I cant convince myself to pay what they want for a 512 or 1024 yet
[16:51] <ozzzy> my desktop/laptop/netbook have platters.... I'm not about to go SSD there

[17:22] <kreggly> Something small enough to shoot up a tree with a country station, some blues, podcasts, classic rock.

[17:22] <kreggly> Festival tunes.
[17:23] <zylinx> kreggly: USB audio DAC's are very small and easy to setup
[17:23] <zylinx> personally have not tried many at once but i know its very possible
[17:23] <zylinx> they are plug and play
[17:24] <zylinx> and get assigned an audio device ID
[17:24] <zylinx> which you can then select as an output
[17:24] * lazl0w (~lazl0w@ Quit (Ping timeout: 244 seconds)
[17:25] <kreggly> Wonder how that would work as docker containers with a basic command line audio player.

[17:33] <methuzla> do you have i2c working on the pi2?
[17:33] <zylinx> just wondering if i get things wrong, will there be any chance of damaging my pi ?
[17:34] <zylinx> no im not sure how to do it
[17:35] <zylinx> i have done all the soldering all thats left is to enable i2c, install the daemon and connect my board. but i am scared i will over look something

[17:46] <willy23123> does anyone know about gpio device tree
[17:47] <methuzla> probably
[17:48] <willy23123> i have a raspberry pi and want to set gpio 6 to output low but it reverts to output high after less than a second
[17:48] <willy23123> its a model A+
[17:48] <methuzla> how are you setting it low?
[17:49] <willy23123> with the bcm2835 c library
[17:49] <zylinx> willy23123: maybe your script is terminating and cleaning up ?
[17:49] <willy23123> my mike mc calley
[17:49] <Sonny_Jim> Can you paste the code somewhere?
[17:49] <willy23123> is there a way to prevent the clean up on terminate
[17:49] <zylinx> methuzla: i get -sh: i2cdetect: not found

[17:51] <Sonny_Jim> gpio write 6 1
[17:51] <willy23123> is gpio 6 reserved for anything special
[17:51] <Sonny_Jim> Not that I can see

[17:52] <willy23123> bcm gpio 6
[17:52] <zylinx> methuzla: nope
[17:52] <Sonny_Jim> What says it's for network reset?
[17:52] <methuzla> zylinx you'll need to enable i2c (but i don't know how arch goes about doing that, should be able to google it)
[17:53] <methuzla> zylinx once enabled, you should see /dev/i2c-1 show up
[17:53] <willy23123> the gpio 6 is only available on the a+ and b+ and older firmware used it for network reset

[17:54] <methuzla> zylinx the FMBerry code seems to get at i2c through the file system (i.e. /dev/i2c-1), so once you've got i2c enabled, it might work

[21:24] <Ryccardo> obtain package file, `dpkg -i package1.deb package2.deb ...`
[21:25] <Ryccardo> iterate for dependencies or figure them out beforehand and do it in less steps

[21:28] <Ryccardo> if that contains source code, you might convert it to binary .deb with "checkinstall", never tried it but basically you follow the instructions of the package replacing the "make install" step

[21:32] <zylinx> thanks again Ryccardo
[21:32] <shiftplusone> Or build openelec from scratch after adding your own packages
[21:33] <Ryccardo> shiftplusone: so it's a loop mounted cramfs or the like?
[21:33] <shiftplusone> and none of these are beginner-friendly tasks.

[21:37] <zylinx> so basically i need to take FMBerry and all its dependacies and make a kodi add on ?
[21:37] <shiftplusone> Don't know how straight forward it is to make an addon which installs binaries.
[21:38] <zylinx> i found this, not sure if its what i am looking for
[21:38] <zylinx> https://github.com/OpenELEC/unofficial-addons/blob/master/addons/debugging/tools/i2c-tools/package.mk
[21:39] <shiftplusone> zylinx, what's your level of linux experience? It's great to learn, but it's better to start in the shallow end and work your way up.
[21:39] * speeddragon (~speeddrag@ Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[21:40] <zylinx> not sure... i just use debian on my laptop
[21:40] <zylinx> basic linux experience
[21:40] <shiftplusone> it does look like binary addons are relatively straight forward though... I have never played with it though.
[21:41] <shiftplusone> zylinx, any reason you don't use something like raspbmc instead?

[21:43] <zylinx> ok cool, so i could make a gui for it too so from the tv i can set the transmit freq and power etc.
[21:43] <zylinx> didnt think i would end up doing this but seems like a cool idea
[21:44] <shiftplusone> still a little iffy about binaries... it all seems to be scripted and interacting with the kodi framework in some way. I haven't looked too far into it though
[21:45] <Ryccardo> from the high school Java I know (and Android examples), making a GUI is hardly fun
[21:45] <shiftplusone> I think the binaries need to be provided by the base OS, kodi is really just an application.
[21:45] <Ryccardo> (only thing VB5 was superior for?)
[21:45] <shiftplusone> VB6 FTW
[21:45] <shiftplusone> I've played around with gtk and qt, but it's all so blah

[21:46] <Jusii> there's lots of addons with binaries
[21:47] <shiftplusone> People are going on about how great QML is but.... it's just using web stuff to make a GUI, which is much more blah.
[21:47] <zylinx> shiftplusone: ok the add-on i posted, does that add the i2c-tools as a package to be used by other add-ons ?
[21:47] <zylinx> or Jusii ^
[21:47] <shiftplusone> zylinx, that just has the binaries and when you try to 'run' the addon, it will say "this is a console only addon"
[21:49] <zylinx> oh
[21:50] * speeddragon (~speeddrag@ has joined #raspberrypi
[21:50] <zylinx> has the binaries only in its own context?
[21:51] <zylinx> so basically theres no way out for me doing this in openelec other than reading on how add-ons work and make one ..... ?
[21:51] <shiftplusone> don't know... the guy who knows all that kodi and openelec stuff has gone home.
[21:52] <shiftplusone> you can modify the filesystem elsewhere, compress and write it back
[21:52] <shiftplusone> that'll involve cross-compiling and all that fun stuff
[21:52] <shiftplusone> so you'll find it's easier to add it as an openelec package
[21:52] <shiftplusone> and compile openelec yourself

[23:00] <Jusii> that's enough for compiling kernel
[23:01] <baldpope> anything more for an application would just depend on the app requirements?
[23:01] <baldpope> and then how do you specify build target?
[23:01] <ali1234> for kernel or for applications?
[23:01] <baldpope> app
[23:01] <ali1234> it depends on the app

[23:01] <plugwash> Jusii, my experiance is that switches got auto-mdix long before nics did

[23:03] <Jusii> plugwash: I think you're right
[23:03] <plugwash> Though IIRC the LAN9512 on the Pi does have auto-mdix so you shouldn't need a crossover to connect a Pi to anything.

[23:08] <Codica> i exist
[23:09] <Froolap> no uh uhhh
[23:09] <ApolloJustice> no u
[23:10] <Codica> If only there was a good way to make a battery for the pi
[23:10] <Codica> well pijuice is a thing
[23:10] * SiC (Simon@cpc12-aztw24-2-0-cust193.aztw.cable.virginm.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[23:10] <Jusii> battery is found in me
[23:10] <Codica> I'd love to just have a miniature PC I can carry around, slide out a keyboard n shit
[23:10] * Codica takes out Jusii's battery
[23:10] * Nik05 (~Nik05@unaffiliated/nik05) has joined #raspberrypi
[23:11] <Jusii> we create the battery, cannot kill the battery
[23:11] <Jusii> but seriously, you could run pi with those portable USB batteries for awhile
[23:12] <Codica> True, but charging it will make it a pass through IIRC or smth
[23:12] <Codica> and that kills battery
[23:13] <Codica> Although I could do that (I even have a battery pack)
[23:13] * Ryccardo so the KT2 has screws of different colors and length, I put them in randomly and they fit nice
[23:13] <Codica> although bits quite bulky

[23:34] <dashed> hmm
[23:34] <dashed> seems avahi works
[23:35] * chod (~chod@toy-town.demon.co.uk) has joined #raspberrypi
[23:36] <shiftplusone> hurray for avahi
[23:36] <shiftplusone> Does anybody think it should come pre-installed?
[23:36] <shiftplusone> Or would it be extra bloat?
[23:36] <chod> wassat
[23:37] <Ryccardo> through dependencies, even the allegedly nothing-installed-by-default Arch has it on my PC
[23:37] <shiftplusone> mdns thingy. Lets you ssh into the pi, for example, without knowing the IP
[23:37] <chod> using arp type recog ?
[23:38] <chod> or some rely on some remote server else where?
[23:38] <dashed> avahi-autoipd is what i needed to get around the self-assigned IP issue when connecting the pi 2 to the macbook via ethernet
[23:38] <shiftplusone> using black magic
[23:38] <shiftplusone> no remote servers
[23:38] <Ryccardo> chod: from all I know, it does something with the "broadcast address"
[23:39] * Delboy (~openwrt@141-136-218-240.dsl.iskon.hr) has joined #raspberrypi
[23:39] <shiftplusone> aye, I suppose it uses multicasting to 'advertise'... hence the 'm'DNS
[23:39] <chod> arp -a then
[23:39] <chod> and pick a free one
[23:40] * chod will look
[23:40] <shiftplusone> arp hasn't worked for me
[23:41] * McAFK is now known as McBride36
[23:41] <chod> arp lists things its 'seen'
[23:41] <shiftplusone> yup, that's what I assumed
[23:41] <chod> there is a more tech answer <
