[0:10] <Captain_Crow> does raspbian have a gui for the repo or do i need to know terminal commands?

[0:14] * kanzie (~kanzie@ has joined #raspberrypi
[0:15] <kanzie> I have just installed my raspberry, put kodi and deluge on it and mounted a external drie. Yet suddenly I cant use it because there is no free disk
[0:15] <kanzie> I got the Noob 1.4 8gb SD-card
[0:16] <kanzie> a df -h shows me that /dev/root is 100% use
[0:16] <pmumble> have you expanded the drive in raspi_config?
[0:16] <kanzie> at 3.2G
[0:16] <kanzie> pmumble: I tried but it said it was already expanded
[0:16] <kanzie> pmumble: I can try again because this sucks, cant do anything on it now
[0:16] <pmumble> hm, that's odd. did you run as sudo? double check. there is a way to do it manually, but it's much easier in raspi_config
[0:17] <kanzie> yeah, it says “your partiton layout is currenyl not support by this tool. You are probably using NOOBS in which case your root filesystem is already expanded anyway”
[0:17] <kanzie> running as root
[0:17] <kanzie> pmumble: this is df output

[0:19] * GenteelBen (GenteelBen@cpc70137-lutn12-2-0-cust564.9-3.cable.virginm.net) Quit ()
[0:19] <kanzie> the SD card has OpenELEC on it too, which problably takes some space
[0:20] <kanzie> maybe I should just run OpeneLEC instead and throw in deluge on that
[0:20] <pmumble> i realized i haven't tried to expand my fs on noobs. only raspian image. so yeah, not sure.

[0:23] <kanzie> pmumble: is there a downside to running OpenElec instead of the noobs?
[0:23] <kanzie> I guess Raspian is what its called
[0:23] * sentriz (~sentriz@unaffiliated/sentriz) Quit (Quit: quiting)
[0:24] * plugwash (~plugwash@97e3d836.skybroadband.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:24] <claudiop> Hi. Whenever I set an hardware pin as output it sends +5v out of that pin? Is it safe to measure it directly with a multimeter against a ground pin?
[0:25] <claudiop> Im not really an electricity guy, just want to make sure I'll not burn the Pi :p
[0:25] * doomlord (~textual@host86-179-6-92.range86-179.btcentralplus.com) Quit (Quit: My MacBook Pro has gone to sleep. ZZZzzz…)
[0:26] <plugwash> It won't send 5V, it will send either 3.3V or 0V depending on what the output value is set to
[0:26] <pmumble> kanzie: i've only briefly experimented with NOOBs, my pis are running raspian from the raspbian image
[0:26] <pmumble> so not sure
[0:26] <plugwash> and yes it's safe to measure it with a multimeter set up for measuring voltage
[0:27] * kanzie (~kanzie@ Quit (Quit: kanzie)
[0:27] <claudiop> plugwash, In case you know, does the same apply for Arduino? I mean, the 3.3V
[0:27] * doomlord (~textual@host86-179-6-92.range86-179.btcentralplus.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:27] <claudiop> And Im talking about the python function GPIO.output(pin, True). That gets 3.3v out?
[0:28] * lifeCrisis (cf90a272@gateway/web/freenode/ip. Quit (Quit: Page closed)
[0:28] * t0x0sh (~tosh@t0x0sh.org) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[0:28] <ozzzy> the function just makes the pin high... which on a Pi is 3.3v
[0:29] <plugwash> You have to be careful when linking different boards together. Some stuff is 5V, some stuff is 3.3V, I think ardino may have both in their range but i'm not positive (you certainly see both in the wider world of arduino based stuff)
[0:29] <plugwash> some 3.3V devices are tolerant of 5V signals but the pi is not one of them.
[0:30] <Ownix> Hey guys im having issues with OSMC. How do I get it to "add my media" and scan it and then organize it and apply pictures and all that?
[0:31] <Ownix> Right ow I have to click files and go probing around for my movie file
[0:31] <claudiop> I'm asking because i bought a stepper motor with a controller board advertised as "for arduino" (just like everything on ebay). There are a few guides on how to use it on raspberry, but for some reason the code its not working. I mean, two pins work just fine, but two other not that much, and i wanted to know a way to test whats going wrong
[0:32] <claudiop> Getting eletricity directly into the motor works just fine. I'll just check the RPI pins against a multimeter to check if the problem is hw or sw
[0:32] * skylite (~skylite@91EC3D89.dsl.pool.telekom.hu) Quit (Quit: Textual IRC Client: www.textualapp.com)
[0:33] <claudiop> Can i connect the ground against the ground of a 5v transformer or do i have to connect it to the rasp gpio ground? I have no idea if there's any difference between a 3.3v ground or a 5v one :p
[0:34] <plugwash> you need to connect all the grounds in your system together
[0:34] * polarburn (polar@thebes.openshells.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:35] <ozzzy> yep... grounds are common
[0:35] <claudiop> No, i mean, to measure it. The motor needs 5v. I have a bredboard with 5v on it coming from a transformer connected to the motor power pins, and then a rasp connected to the motor board logic pins
[0:35] <claudiop> ozzzy, thanks

[0:49] <doomlord> obscure question...
[0:49] <doomlord> does anyone know if the rPI's video chip has a 1920x1080p textmode , eg 240x135 x 8x8 characters
[0:50] <doomlord> i heard it has some kind of unusual hardware windowing
[0:51] * nitdega (~nitdega@2602:304:ab12:48b1:f19f:c18c:d129:bef6) Quit (Quit: ZNC - http://znc.in)
[0:51] <plugwash> I don't think the rpi has any hardware textmode at all
[0:53] * EastLight (n@05403c70.skybroadband.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:54] <doomlord> i guess the hardware windowing could be used for scrolling views with minimal memory traffic
[0:55] <claudiop> I have one pin outputing. If i read its voltage against the GPIO gnd it reads 3.25v, againt a 5v tranformer ground reads 2.75v. Its a really cheap multimeter. Probably whats the problem?
[0:56] * mgottschlag (~quassel@reactos/tester/phoenix64) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:57] <methuzla> "againt a 5v tranformer ground reads 2.75v" <- that reading is between what two points?
[0:58] * zeeshan (~kvirc64@CPE0018e7cea342-CM5039555db2cc.cpe.net.cable.rogers.com) Quit (Ping timeout: 265 seconds)
[0:58] <claudiop> The transformer ground/negative and the gpio outputing pin
[0:59] <claudiop> BTW, the gpio pin numbers changed since the first RPi version?
[0:59] * plugwash (~plugwash@97e3d836.skybroadband.com) has left #raspberrypi
[1:00] <methuzla> sounds like the grounds are isolated from each other
[1:00] * vdamewood (~vdamewood@71-38-146-60.ptld.qwest.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:01] <methuzla> in general gpio pin numbers haven't changed, first 26 on newer pis are same as older

[1:02] * cave (~various@178-190-249-9.adsl.highway.telekom.at) Quit (Ping timeout: 264 seconds)
[1:03] <claudiop> methuzla, Ehh, that means? Im doing a project with a friend (which is sleeping right now). He just understands about hw, i just understand about sw, and I dont understand lots of eletronic things and am really worried about not ruining the RPi
[1:03] <claudiop> Weird, the demo source code i downloaded has its pins listed wrongs
[1:03] <claudiop> *wrong. Thats my problem with the motor
[1:04] * j12t (~j12t@c-107-3-142-14.hsd1.ca.comcast.net) has joined #raspberrypi

[1:06] <shiftplusone> keep in mind that the pins might NOT be wrong.
[1:06] <claudiop> methuzla, A 28BJY-48 stepper motor and its board. I was using this code: www.raspberrypi-spy.co.uk/2012/07/stepper-motor-control-in-python/
[1:06] * dreamon (~dreamon@unaffiliated/dreamon) Quit (Ping timeout: 256 seconds)
[1:06] <claudiop> I assembled the cables with another tutorial, maybe that one was the problem
[1:06] * chris_99 (~chris_99@unaffiliated/chris-99/x-3062929) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[1:07] <shiftplusone> I've had people complain to me that pin numbers I've given in documentation are wrong. It turns out people make wrong assumptions about pin numbers.

[1:08] * taza (~taza@unaffiliated/taza) Quit ()
[1:08] <claudiop> I'll just get one of these: https://www.raspberrypi.org/raspberry-leaf/ Its confusing to have so many pins without any description
[1:09] * b00ger_daddy (~aiB00gerD@pool-173-57-81-29.dllstx.fios.verizon.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:09] * taza (~taza@unaffiliated/taza) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:10] <shiftplusone> that's for the old pi
[1:11] <shiftplusone> the newer pis have more pins so that thing won't fit
[1:12] <claudiop> shiftplusone, I have one of the old ones. The first ones that came with 512Mb from the uk
[1:12] * j12t (~j12t@c-107-3-142-14.hsd1.ca.comcast.net) Quit (Ping timeout: 276 seconds)
[1:12] <shiftplusone> ah, great.
[1:12] * Xark notes it kinda works (from the creators blog) http://www.doctormonk.com/search/label/raspberry%20pi
[1:12] * greenstatic (~greenstat@unaffiliated/greenstatic) has left #raspberrypi
[1:13] <methuzla> claudiop is that the same controller board you're using in that link?
[1:15] <claudiop> methuzla, Yea, these motors are bundled with these controller boards in ebay, there are literally thousands of entries for the same pack, so I'll assume it is the same
[1:16] <methuzla> so looks like plugging the stepper to the board is straight forward, correct?
[1:17] <Captain_Crow> was raspbian patched after the heartbleed bug?
[1:18] <shiftplusone> yes
[1:18] <claudiop> Yes, pretty much. But somehow the pins are exchanged. I'll just finish doing my homemade raspberry GPIO numbers paper thing, and then check get the motor working. It seems quite simple, but the pins seem to be wrong
[1:20] <methuzla> claudiop possible, i'm trying to work through it one piece at a time, first is: is the motor plugged in correctly?
[1:20] <methuzla> claudiop looks like it comes with a connector, hopefully with an alignment key, so really only one way to plug it in
[1:21] * Textmode (~boneidle@adsl-1-au-2-174.ozonline.com.au) Quit (Quit: "It was one dev, naked in a room with a carton of cigarettes, a thermos full of coffee and bourbon, and all his summoned angels.")
[1:21] * SnowRaptor (~SnowRapto@ has joined #raspberrypi
[1:21] <Encapsulation> anyoen here used pir sensors witht he pi
[1:22] * Tachyon` is now known as Tach[Zzz]
[1:22] <claudiop> methuzla, The motor power is plugged properly, and if i manually connect power to the logic pins, the correct led turns on, but Im not fast enough doing it for it to turn. With the demo source the same doesn't happens. Only two leds turn on ever, even if blinking
[1:23] <claudiop> And i checked, and what was supposed to be the second pin, was the 4th
[1:23] <methuzla> "manually connect power to the logic pins" <- not a good idea, depending on what "power" is
[1:25] * Logicwax (~Logicwax@c-76-126-174-152.hsd1.ca.comcast.net) has left #raspberrypi
[1:25] * Keanu73 (~Keanu73@unaffiliated/keanu73) Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[1:27] <SnowRaptor> Does anyone here have experience running gentoo on the rpi? I'm worried about compiling IO and wondering whether mounting /var/tmp/portage/ via nfs instead of having it in the SDcard
[1:30] * Coldblackice_ is now known as Coldblackice
[1:30] * thescatman_ (~thescatma@unaffiliated/thescatman) Quit (Ping timeout: 265 seconds)
[1:30] <shiftplusone> SnowRaptor, don't worry. You'll realise you should use Arch instead before any damage is done to the card.
[1:31] <shiftplusone> (although I use an externally powered usb hdd for compiling stuff on the pi)

[1:34] <Zunz> Anyone experience with avconv?
[1:35] <methuzla> claudiop their code doesn't match their webpage in terms of pins used
[1:35] <methuzla> claudiop webpage = 18, 22, 24, 26
[1:35] <methuzla> claudiop code = 17, 22, 23, 24

[1:45] <SnowRaptor> shiftplusone, I'm not here after distro wars, I've been using gentoo for some 10 years now
[1:46] <SnowRaptor> If I were to use another distro, I'd just go with raspbian and not worry.
[1:47] * plum (~plum@unaffiliated/plum) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:47] <plum> hi there
[1:47] <methuzla> Zunz so little I'm probably no better than google, but just ask your question

[1:55] * mgottschlag (~quassel@reactos/tester/phoenix64) Quit (Ping timeout: 244 seconds)
[1:56] * [Saint] wonders why someone would hate themselves enough to use Gentoo on a raspi
[1:56] <claudiop> Is there any difference in using any GPIO pin (except the power ones) for what I was attempting (controlling a stepping motor)? For example can I use pins 2, 3, 4 and 14 instead of the ones in the tutorial?
[1:57] <claudiop> I know some of them have some capabilities like serial and things, but they can also be used as simple output, right?
[1:57] <[Saint]> correct
[1:57] <claudiop> Thanks
[1:57] * utack (~utack@x4d046d64.dyn.telefonica.de) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:57] <methuzla> claudiop depends on what you mean by "pin 2", the naming scheme is confusing
[1:58] <shiftplusone> SnowRaptor, no distro war intended. I'm a fan of gentoo. Just not into s&m.
[1:58] <SnowRaptor> s&m ?
[1:58] <shiftplusone> nothing
[1:58] <shiftplusone> that's why I followed it up with the HDD suggestion
[1:58] <claudiop> methuzla, The pin number that appears in the pinout
[1:59] <claudiop> In this case pin2 is also some SDA thing
[1:59] <[Saint]> SnowRaptor: what is being said, albeit in a roundabout fashion, is that there's no observable benefit to using Gentoo on the raspi to an outsider...basically.
[2:00] <shiftplusone> (but whatever floats your boat)
[2:00] * MrM0bius is now known as MrMobius
[2:00] <[Saint]> And that Arch is basically Gentoo sans headaches and messing about.
[2:00] <SnowRaptor> [Saint], there's the benefit of being the distro I'm most used to.
[2:01] <[Saint]> You'll find Arch more than vaguely familiar.
[2:01] <[Saint]> Debian-esque distros, notsomuch.
[2:02] <methuzla> claudiop what pin out are you looking at?
[2:02] <[Saint]> TBH, I don't personally think Gentoo makes any sense at all on mass production systems. But, that's me.
[2:03] <shiftplusone> [Saint], really? what's so different about debian?
[2:03] <methuzla> claudiop pin 2 (physical on pi gpio) is 5V
[2:03] <[Saint]> shiftplusone: mainly package management
[2:04] <[Saint]> which can be a large hurdle for some.
[2:04] <shiftplusone> O_o
[2:04] <shiftplusone> You'd think that someone comfortable with portage wouldn't struggle with apt at all
[2:05] <claudiop> methuzla, I understand what you mean. I mean BCM pin2. The one below 3.3v, or physical pin3
[2:05] <claudiop> Here which ones do you usualy talk about, physical or BCM pins?
[2:05] * tripout (~tripout@ Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[2:05] <shiftplusone> update, install, upgrade.... they're all fairly intuitive.
[2:05] <[Saint]> one would think, but history has shown me that's not necessarily the case.
[2:05] <methuzla> claudiop either, that's why it's confusing
[2:06] <claudiop> methuzla, And why does wiring pi implements its own order? You guys enjoy confusion? :p
[2:07] <claudiop> To begin with why is the bcm pin order random-ish?
[2:07] <claudiop> There were problems getting things ordered in hw design? Or is it better this way?
[2:07] <shiftplusone> claudiop, wiringpi numbering scheme was something that was used to refer to the pins before the pi actually came out, so the author of it went with that. You should only worry about BCM and physical pin numbers.
[2:08] <shiftplusone> (wiringpi supports using BCM pin numbers if you tell it to)
[2:10] <claudiop> shiftplusone, Then where did the BCM order came from? I know its not easy to design hardware, was it because of problem getting wires in order?
[2:10] <claudiop> I mean, having grounds and power all over the place seems useful, but having the pin order somewhat random seems confusing
[2:11] <shiftplusone> the BCM numbers are the actual numbers used by the SoC and documentation.
[2:11] <methuzla> claudiop also, the RPi.GPIO python module is not the same as wiringPi
[2:11] <claudiop> methuzla, I know that part. It wouldn't make sense.
[2:12] <claudiop> shiftplusone, yea, but why not getting them like 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 ... instead of 17, 27, 22, 10, 9, 11 ?
[2:12] * hamrove (~hamrove__@96-8-209-215.block0.gvtc.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[2:12] <methuzla> claudiop the code you're looking at does not use wiringPi
[2:12] <shiftplusone> claudiop, there are pins which are used for other stuff on the board. it doesn't all go out onto the GPIO header
[2:13] <shiftplusone> the GPIO header is the left over stuff
[2:13] * plum (~plum@unaffiliated/plum) Quit (Quit: ChatZilla [Firefox 37.0.2/20150415140819])
[2:13] <shiftplusone> if you're asking why they're not routed out GPIO0 to PIN1 and so on... That's not a thing that generally happens and would be somewhat silly. But yes, one huge reasons not to do that is that it would be a pain to route out. The board is difficult enough to route as it is.
[2:13] * spat (~spat@pdpc/supporter/professional/spat) Quit (Ping timeout: 255 seconds)
[2:14] <[Saint]> yeah, routing just to have nicely ordered pins would suck. but make for an interesting board.
[2:14] * edux (~edux@ Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[2:15] <claudiop> shiftplusone, Ok, I guess that explains it, even if it becomes more confusing for users.
[2:16] <[Saint]> if you're using wiringpi as a base, I think you can tell it to use the internal numbering scheme - but that might not make things any less confusing.
[2:16] <methuzla> roll your own and add your layer of software abstraction
[2:16] <[Saint]> ah, I should have read up more. shiftplusone already mentioned this.

[2:19] <MrAnderson> Hello
[2:19] <shiftplusone> Hello, Sir
[2:20] <methuzla> i'd call i2c "chatty chat" and SPI "speaky speak" and GPIO "outty inny"
[2:20] <[Saint]> Take him away, Officer Hedgehog. Put him somewhere obvious.
[2:21] <MrAnderson> Anybody have experience setting up access wireless access points on the pi?
[2:21] <shiftplusone> why chatty chat and speaky speak and not the other way around? Is there something that makes SPI more speaky than chatty? =S
[2:21] * HeroYooj_ (~heroyooji@71-91-74-243.dhcp.leds.al.charter.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[2:21] <shiftplusone> MrAnderson, hostapd
[2:21] <MrAnderson> using that
[2:21] <shiftplusone> and hope the chipset you're using doesn't suck
[2:21] <[Saint]> ^ that
[2:21] <MrAnderson> Edimax
[2:21] <MrAnderson> i got the AP working fine
[2:21] <claudiop> Is a cheapo stepping motor supposed to turn at clock speed? I don't know if the problem is with the code, but it seems that the pi and the code are working fine.
[2:22] <shiftplusone> ah, great. I've seen that you need a different version of hostapd for a few different chipsets, which isn't fun.
[2:22] <[Saint]> Then what be thine issue, noble MrAnderson?
[2:22] <MrAnderson> yea...i have a different binary
[2:22] <shiftplusone> Then our job is done here.
[2:23] <MrAnderson> I'm trying to mirror Chromecast functionality, allowing the Pi to host an AP with an apache frontend that allows you to enter in SSID and password and then connect to wifi that way.
[2:23] <MrAnderson> I think AstroBox does this, not sure if anyone is familiar
[2:23] <methuzla> claudiop speed depends on how fast the pulse sequence is done (up to limit of stepper motor)
[2:23] <shiftplusone> Ah, so this doesn't sound like an AP question at all.

[2:24] <MrAnderson> well it sort of has to do with it, because at the moment i've moved backwards, unable to get dnsmasq to properly hand out ip addresses
[2:25] <MrAnderson> but i think my understanding of ip addresses and such might be at its limits
[2:25] <claudiop> methuzla, Im giving a pulse at every 50 miliseconds. I don't know how much does it rotate with each pulse tough..
[2:25] <MrAnderson> i was trying to do this without having to give the pi a static ip
[2:25] <[Saint]> Heh. TO be honest, I'd just buy a Chromecast. They're foolishly cheap, and rather awesome.
[2:25] <MrAnderson> i have one
[2:26] <shiftplusone> MrAnderson, sounds like you've got all the right pieces and it's just a matter of configuring it right.
[2:26] <methuzla> claudiop 5.625 deg per step (per datasheet)
[2:26] <MrAnderson> i'm trying to integrate the same functionality into a pi project
[2:26] <methuzla> claudiop with a gear reduction ratio of 1:64
[2:26] <shiftplusone> That reminds me... I should probably buy a chomecast. They do netflix, right?
[2:26] <MrAnderson> they do, decently well if your network is up to the challenge
[2:26] <MrAnderson> anyway, i think i'm on the cusp

[2:27] <shiftplusone> Alright... will get one with the next paycheck. I blew the remains of my money on two C64's >_<
[2:27] <methuzla> claudiop it's probably going to go pretty slow with the 1:64 reduction gear
[2:27] <claudiop> methuzla, It means 5.625 deg after reduction or before reduction? Something is wrong with my code, a youtube video of a guy using the same motor on an arduino seems way faster
[2:27] <[Saint]> it still pays to jump through the hoops to get US Netflix over $locale Netflix.
[2:27] <[Saint]> As the latter plain sucks.
[2:28] <shiftplusone> UK netflix isn't too bad.
[2:28] <[Saint]> For varying definitions of bad, but, yeah.
[2:28] <[Saint]> US Netflix is largely superior.
[2:28] <shiftplusone> For everything else, there's "Sorry, this page is not available through Virgin Media"
[2:28] <[Saint]> AU Netflix just sucks.
[2:28] <shiftplusone> Still better than cable.
[2:29] <MrAnderson> What i want to do is use the wifi adapter to scan for ESSIDS, put them in a list, put that on a web page and then host it on the pi. Connecting to the pi's AP will send someone to the apache site and let them choose an SSID from the list and put in a password. That info will then get funneled through some scripts into wpa_supplicant.conf which should trigger a wifi connection.
[2:29] <shiftplusone> probably... haven't had cable in a very long time.
[2:29] <Goldy> shiftpusone, whats the plan with the c64s?
[2:29] <claudiop> My code is this one. Seems simple and has little waiting for each pulse: https://gist.github.com/anonymous/227be649b8a52ae33289
[2:29] <claudiop> Is it problematic or the problem is somewhere else?
[2:29] <[Saint]> Fortunately my telco offers a 'global mode' for 'overseas visitors to access their services'.
[2:29] <[Saint]> Read as "screw over geo-fencing mode"
[2:30] <[Saint]> There's a LOT of debate and crying about it.

[2:32] <[Saint]> tl;dr we can jump between locales, or appear to, as a service of the telco.

[2:34] <Goldy> shiftplusone, cool i've kept mine stock need new CIA chips as 1 joystick doesn't work. I've been meaning to do something with my faulty vic-20, at least interfacing the keyboard
[2:34] <shiftplusone> [Saint], https://wikileaks.org/sony/emails/emailid/3124
[2:34] <claudiop> methuzla, Why's that? They seem to be the more ordered ones in the middle of the GPIO mess :p
[2:35] <shiftplusone> Goldy, I'd also like to try retr0bright. >.>
[2:36] <shiftplusone> One of the units is faulty, so if I can clean it up and get it working, I think I could get come money back for it.
[2:37] <Goldy> I'm not too fussed about the look, my c64 is OK looking, my Amiga 500 could do with it, but too much hassle for aesthetics
[2:38] <methuzla> claudiop i've never needed to, i'm often using i2c/spi, the uart is great for debug access

[2:45] <Goldy> claudiop, what os are you using
[2:45] <claudiop> Goldy, Am I supposed to need one of those? Im shorting the CPU directly for some "optimized assembly" :p
[2:45] <claudiop> Arch in other words
[2:47] <Goldy> was just wondering, a uart terminal is enabled by default in raspbian, could be messing with your control of pin 14?
[2:47] <methuzla> ^^ what i was thinking, but don't know for sure
[2:49] <Goldy> I would just try another pin, at least eliminate that factor
[2:50] <Goldy> or all 4, 17,21,22, 23 maybe? as methuzla said i2c might be ballsing you up too
[2:50] <claudiop> I already tried. It seems the pulse timming was up by an order of 10. Now it just needs like 7 seconds to rotate
[2:50] <claudiop> Im using 27, 22, 23, 24 right now

[2:55] <claudiop> methuzla, It's working for a while. The problem is the speed. I was hoping for this thing to be way faster. The fastest i can get is 3ms pulses
[2:55] <claudiop> Its no longer code or RPi fault
[2:55] <claudiop> I think
[2:56] <methuzla> claudiop steppers can only go so fast
[2:56] <methuzla> claudiop try it with StepDir = 1
[2:56] <ozzzy> I have some steppers that won't go faster than 5ms

[2:58] <claudiop> methuzla, Instead of 7 secods for each rotation it takes 12 with StepDir = 1 since it does 8 steps instead of 4
[2:58] <claudiop> If i want to drive a wheel, whats the adequate type of motor?
[2:58] <claudiop> I mean, motors in which i can control the amount of rotation
[2:58] <ozzzy> how accurate do you want the motion to be
[2:58] <shiftplusone> again though... crowdfunding.... they tend to be bad at planning and getting the pricing right.
[2:59] <claudiop> Like a quarter of a turn is accurate enough
[2:59] <ozzzy> then you can use a DC motor
[2:59] <claudiop> but a DC motor has no control over rotation
[2:59] <claudiop> Does it?
[2:59] <ozzzy> sure as hell does
[2:59] <Goldy> ^^ with hall effect or rotary encoding
[3:00] <ozzzy> you can turn the speed down and pulse it for as little as 10ms
[3:00] <ozzzy> or cheaper you can set the speed (pwm) and measure the rotation speed and if you want 1/8 rotation then pulse it for 1/8 the time it takes for a full rotation

[3:01] <claudiop> Are you talking about what I think you're talking?(those motors which spin fast has hell but only have two pins +,gnd) Or are any special type of DC motor with a third pin to control rotations?
[3:01] <claudiop> Like fan PWM?
[3:02] <ozzzy> just a regular DC motor... two terminals
[3:02] <claudiop> Okey, didn't knew about it. Got to read about it :p
[3:02] <claudiop> Oh, and BTW, how many current can i draw directly from the GPIO?
[3:02] <claudiop> Enough to power a small motor?
[3:02] <ozzzy> no
[3:03] <Goldy> although my experience with using pwm straight off of the GPIO has not been great with motors
[3:03] <ozzzy> use a motor chip... L293D for DC or ULN2003 for stepper
[3:04] <claudiop> ozzzy, Im using an ULN with this stepper Im using, but have no L293D. Didn't wanted to wait a year and two full moons for it to come from ebay :p

[3:05] <ozzzy> you could build your own H-bridge
[3:05] <claudiop> ozzzy, Im in Europe, NA stores wont help. I'll check that H-bridge thing
[3:05] <claudiop> Does a relay also solves?
[3:06] <claudiop> *not really into the eletronics thing*
[3:06] <ozzzy> I wouldn't use relays
[3:06] <ozzzy> but there are suppliers in EU for parts
[3:06] <claudiop> ozzzy, Why not relays? Except for being big for small projects whats their problem?
[3:07] <Goldy> RS most likely ship to you, dunno if you have to reach a minimum order price or anything though
[3:07] <Goldy> relays are sloooooow
[3:07] <methuzla> claudiop what's the actual chip on that board you're using?
[3:07] <claudiop> Goldy, Yea probably, I've heard about it so it should. Got to talk to my eletronic things mate. He'll know better.
[3:08] <claudiop> There are eletronic relays, right? Are they also slow?
[3:08] <claudiop> I mean, the non-mechanical ones
[3:08] <ozzzy> you could use relays... don't forget to protect the circuitry
[3:08] <ozzzy> I'm not a fan of relays when I can use fast, high-current parts
[3:09] <ozzzy> with no moving mass
[3:09] <claudiop> methuzla, uln2003APG i think. Too dark to see now
[3:09] <ozzzy> good for steppers....
[3:09] <claudiop> ozzzy, What do you mean by protecting? They are the part which protects (or these fancy chips we're talking about) no? Or do I need any protection besides relays?
[3:11] <ozzzy> any time you have any coils, motors, other inductors you have to protect the rest of the circuitry... when power is cut from a coil and the magnetic field collapses lots of voltages can start flying around
[3:11] <ozzzy> so you put a flyback diode reverse biased across the inductor

[3:12] <claudiop> Does the transformer also need protection?
[3:12] <claudiop> I mean, if only using a relay, a transformer and a motor
[3:12] <claudiop> Do i need a diode in such case?
[3:13] <ozzzy> you're not understanding... it's not a rectifying diode... it's a steering diode

[3:17] <claudiop> Oh, just one last question
[3:17] <niston> claudiop: if you use relays to implement a H bridge, you should be wary of timing
[3:17] <claudiop> Is there any simple intuitive way to test circuitry by software? I mean, simulate a circuit, and feedbacks among other evil things that eat Pi's?

[3:33] <SpeedEvil> claudiop: not quite - lithium ion batteries are since quite recently _much_ more heavily regulated to ship.

[9:34] <pmumble> nooooo
[9:34] <Froolap> I don't know, but I think that I might
[9:35] <pmumble> via what method?
[9:35] <Froolap> stupidity
[9:37] <Froolap> I want to power my pi by tapping into the red and black wires for an extra hard drive molex connector in my desktop.
[9:38] <ShorTie> i got a pi on the wall powered that way
[9:38] <pmumble> just because?
[9:40] <Froolap> but for some reason there's two black wires..... I know red is 5v and yellow is 12v...... but is there a dedicate ground for 5v and a different ground for 12v?
[9:40] <ShorTie> scraped out a old floppy drive for that connector, some 18awg wire to a male micro-usb end i got from ebay
[9:40] * morois (~morois@ has joined #raspberrypi
[9:40] <ShorTie> no, grounds are like always hooked together
[9:40] <Froolap> no, not a just because.....
[9:41] <Froolap> I have 3 pi and I hate using an outlet for each pi when I'm running a desktop that should be able to power them all, and it would cut down on the required wires
[9:43] * gbaman (~gbaman@host81-139-225-149.in-addr.btopenworld.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[9:43] <Froolap> and for extra joy, I have micro-usb cables that have an off-on switch, so no more pull the connector out and put it back to power cycle the pi.

[9:44] <pmumble> that's cool. sounds like a good idea
[9:45] <Froolap> so it would be pretty to take a slot-cover off of an unused pci slot, and run the wires through there
[9:46] <Froolap> and since I tend to keep my pi on top of the tower case. slick
[9:46] <pmumble> so you use the GPIO 5v/ground for that?

[9:50] <Froolap> cut off the Large usb plug and then feed the wires into a hdd molex splitter..... remove the unwanted pins and pig tails.
[9:51] <pmumble> how many amps do usb outs on computers generally put out? just curious 1A?
[9:51] <ShorTie> nuffin wrong wif that
[9:51] <Froolap> so now I have a 2 pin female molex that will connect to one of my computer's power supply hard drive molex.
[9:51] <ShorTie> usb spec is 500ma
[9:51] <pmumble> oh wow ok
[9:53] <Froolap> I tried running ot off of my computer usb port just for the sake of lets test before I cut..... it did boot my rpi2b but I was getting the rainbow in the top right that says it's not happy.
[9:54] <Froolap> I just remember my early days of computer repair. I had a friend with an odd situation of if they plugged in a hard drive then the system wouldn't boot, but if they disconnected the drive, then the system would start to boot till it couldn't load the os.....

[9:55] <Froolap> Ok, so I bring my computer over and I plug the hard drive power into my computer and plug the hard drive data into their computer. Power up their computer and it boots up pretty.

[10:38] <pmumble> hay
[10:39] <pmumble> probably raspbian, but i haven't tried to get flash working
[10:40] <pmumble> is flash still supported on linux?
[10:41] <pmumble> it looks like gnash is part of the raspbian dist
[10:41] <Berg> i knoiw there are issues with adobe not supporting linux
[10:41] <pmumble> i haven't tried it, but that appears to be an open source swf player
[10:42] <squeakytoy> i am also confused about ubuntu mate vs snappy - why have two ubuntues on raspberry pi O_O
[10:42] <Berg> I started using html 5
[10:42] <pmumble> lightspark is the other, and it is also part of the dist
[10:42] * mgottschlag (~quassel@reactos/tester/phoenix64) Quit (Ping timeout: 252 seconds)
[10:42] <pmumble> snappy ubuntu core isnt a desktop dist, it's for developers
[10:43] <squeakytoy> whats better for a plain browser?
[10:43] <squeakytoy> or high probability to get flash working*
[10:43] <pmumble> raspbian is the most well supported dist for the pi, so if you're new to the pi i'd recommend that
[10:43] * HeroYooj_ is now known as HeroYoojin
[10:44] <Berg> raspbarian and iceweasle is my mix
[10:44] <Berg> the default brouser is slow
[10:44] <squeakytoy> i did yesterday, but didnt get the darn flash working
[10:44] <pmumble> and i'd try to get lightspark or gnash working in iceweasel
[10:44] <pmumble> for flash
[10:44] <squeakytoy> i tried gnash, but was super slow
[10:44] <squeakytoy> not really sure why ths is an issue 2015, oh come on
[10:44] <Berg> how did that go pmumble
[10:45] <pmumble> cause flash is proprietary tech
[10:45] <pmumble> and html5 is replacing it
[10:45] <pmumble> it needs to go
[10:45] <squeakytoy> we are going to send people to mars, but we can't get a simple browser with flash working without 200 hours of headache?
[10:45] <Berg> did you try the addons? or extiens web pages?
[10:45] <pmumble> Berg: i was just suggesting for squeakytoy.. i haven't tried it, myself
[10:46] <Berg> i havent needed flsash or swf
[10:46] <Berg> i as said use html5
[10:46] <squeakytoy> youtube + iceweasel yesterday performed really bad
[10:46] <Berg> connection speed?
[10:46] <squeakytoy> html5
[10:46] <squeakytoy> just lags like razy, audio sync problems
[10:47] <squeakytoy> i just want flash
[10:47] <squeakytoy> i will try ubuntu mate
[10:47] <squeakytoy> or snappy
[10:47] <squeakytoy> still dont understand why there are two versions
[10:48] <pmumble> snappy has no gui
[10:48] <squeakytoy> ok, then its not for me, as a linux newbie :(
[10:48] <squeakytoy> thanks
[10:50] <Froolap> squeakytoy: any

[11:03] <jzaw> The_Borg, nope ... resistance is ohmic :)
[11:03] <Berg> why would you wont to poison your pi?

[11:03] <pmumble> and the pi is for hacking

[12:02] <AfterDarkness> although some changes has been made to it
[12:03] <AfterDarkness> the crude regulator was replaced with a 7812 and the supply voltage is 19v

[12:05] <AfterDarkness> I welcome any suggestions
[12:06] <SpeedEvil> If you're going to do that - then simply using a gate driver chip would be mich simpler.
[12:07] <SpeedEvil> First step.
[12:07] <SpeedEvil> What is the actual gate voltage.
[12:07] <AfterDarkness> the thing is i can't get one quickly i need to make this work by THU
[12:07] <AfterDarkness> gate voltage is 12v
[12:07] <AfterDarkness> from the 7812
[12:08] <SpeedEvil> I mean - actual gate voltage in the circuit
[12:08] <SpeedEvil> does it actually go from ~12 to ~0

[12:11] <SpeedEvil> If you're just driving a slow solenoid, I would take one NPN transistor, emitter to ground, collector to +12V through a 1K resistor, base through a 1K resistor to the GPIO
[12:11] <SpeedEvil> and the gate to the junction of the resistor and transistor
[12:11] * thescatman (~thescatma@unaffiliated/thescatman) has joined #raspberrypi
[12:12] <SpeedEvil> This will 'only' turn on or off in about a microsecond.
[12:12] <SpeedEvil> which isn't great if you're trying to do ~100kHz switching
[12:12] <SpeedEvil> but for solenoids, it's quite adequate
[12:12] * kanzie (~kanzie@ has joined #raspberrypi
[12:12] <AfterDarkness> btw there are other changes in the circuit: 1- Q7 was replaced with a bc548 and R7 in series with base of Q7 and jp1(1). 2- D3 is a 1n5819

[12:14] <SpeedEvil> But - the BC548 is quite adequate for the above single-transistor driver.
[12:15] <SpeedEvil> However - step zero - if you've already implemented this gate driver is to actually measure the voltage on the gate
[12:15] <AfterDarkness> alright, ill measure that and get back
[12:16] <kanzie> Im stumped by why my Pi2 that I bought with the Noobs1.4 card preinstalled after installing three applications suddenly are at 100% disk usage so now it is unusable.

[12:16] <kanzie> right now Im thinking if I do best in just wiping the card and install raspian from scratch again?
[12:16] <SpeedEvil> What size of SD is this?
[12:17] <kanzie> Do you guys have any valuable assistance?

[12:17] * AbouEmre (~Thunderbi@ has joined #raspberrypi
[12:17] <SpeedEvil> As I understand it there is some optional step to make the filesystem teh whole size of the SD
[12:17] <kanzie> SpeedEvil: it claims to be already expanded (the FS that is) when I try expanding it in the Rasp. config tool
[12:17] <SpeedEvil> ah
[12:17] <SpeedEvil> if you start out with no disk space it may be unable to do that
[12:17] <pmumble> that was an 8GB card, right?
[12:18] <kanzie> yeah
[12:18] <SpeedEvil> I have however no experience of this
[12:18] <pmumble> examine the partition table and calculate the used space
[12:19] <pmumble> i'd guess it's likely that the other OS's you installed are taking up the rest of the room though

[12:28] <ambodi> for that, is there a nice IDE becausse I use mainly Java

[12:39] <ambodi> oh yeah? cool.
[12:40] <kanzie> Im not sure what you hope to gain from it instead of just running a VM on your laptop but to each his own I guess
[12:40] <ambodi> Kanzie, what do you think about SpeedEvil's suggestion about USB SATA SSD?

[12:42] <kanzie> vim or such?
[12:43] <kanzie> ambodi: As for SpeedEvils suggestion I mostly agreee… you dont need a SATA SSD, but you would want some kind of external media, the bigger the better.
[12:43] <kanzie> If money is why you want to use the Pi for dev then I dont think the best, fastest external USB is the way to go, but any external USB drive
[12:43] <kanzie> Naturally the faster the nicer of an experience

[14:12] <tchiwam> How clever is the micro usb port on the Rpi2 ? I try to power it from a DC-DC, even added the 200ohm between D+ and D-, still having troubles to keep up even if I have 2A 5V, but when I use the wall USB power brick it goes well....

[14:18] <tchiwam> It will max out at about 700mA, I have an Amp meter
[14:18] <Tenkawa> unfortunately i wont be much more help.. i run mine 2A straight micro usb header to the back

[14:19] <Tenkawa> all 4 of my units are powered that way
[14:19] <Tenkawa> good luck though..
[14:19] <Tenkawa> will definitely be interesting to find the answer

[15:07] <Froolab> 5 years just on reconstructing the circuit board. I had the original as an example to follow
[15:07] * Tenkawa still cringes at some of the motors and engines they used
[15:08] <Froolab> heh a cox .049 engine and an oz of 25% nitro-methane fuel.
[15:08] <Tenkawa> haahaa nice
[15:08] <Froolab> sailplane
[15:08] <Tenkawa> that was a VERY popular engine around here
[15:09] <Froolab> so once it got up there, I could fly all day and night till the batteries got weak.
[15:09] <Tenkawa> nice
[15:09] <Tenkawa> bbiaf... afk again
[15:11] <Froolab> I wonder if maybe my power supply is a little weak

[18:04] <SirLagz> kanzie: your dd command, you had bs=1m
[18:04] <kanzie> its just extremely slow it seems
[18:04] <kanzie> why wouldnt it work_
[18:05] <SirLagz> 1M means 1 Megabyte blocks...no idea what dd would do with 1m
[18:05] <kanzie> in GNU systems 1M is 1 Megabyte, on FresBSD-based dito it is spelled 1m
[18:05] <kanzie> I know its weird, threw me off at first too
[18:05] <SirLagz> kanzie: perhaps your dd discarded 1m and is doing the copy in 512B blocks...in which case it would take a *long* time
[18:06] <SirLagz> kanzie: ahh...you're on BSD systme ?

[18:08] <Zunz> Anyone here ever did something like a spectrum analyser for audio?
[18:08] <SirLagz> kanzie: no idea why yours is so slow then. You could always try a USb card reader and see if it improves any, at least then you'll know if it's your Mac's reader or the SD card.
[18:09] * ShorTie thinkz try M instead of m, don't think dd knows what m is
[18:11] <kanzie> Read up ShorTie… we have just finished discussing the 1M vs. 1m
[18:11] <kanzie> :-)
[18:12] <kanzie> if anything I should switch it to 16M
[18:12] <ShorTie> most use 4M any ways i believe

[19:09] <TheLostAdmin> Scunizi, raspbian doesn't check for a static IP addresses when it starts the dhcp client. You end up with both.
[19:10] * nfk|laptop (~nfk@unaffiliated/nfk) Quit (Ping timeout: 256 seconds)
[19:10] <TheLostAdmin> If you shut off the dhcp client, you will also need to mess around with name resolution settings because that is also run separately and without proper checks. So, it will clobber your resolv.conf on reboot.
[19:10] <Scunizi> TheLostAdmin: doesn't the interfaces file eliminate dhcp or is that handled someplace else?
[19:10] <brasizza> what did you know about the Digital to analogic components? is it 100% usuable ?
[19:11] <TheLostAdmin> it doesn't. Not the way raspbian is setup anyway.

[19:15] <TheLostAdmin> I can't be of much more help. i had the same problem you are having, Scunizi. I ended up leaving dhcpc enabled and configured my dhcp server to hand out the same IP all the time based on the MAC addresses of my Pis

[19:16] <Scunizi> TheLostAdmin: interesting.. I suppose I could do that as well. But it brings up an interesting point of the usefullness of the interfaces file for network configuration when something else is doing it also. That may be why I can't ssh in using pi@raspi2 my host address..
[19:16] * Keanu73 (~Keanu73@unaffiliated/keanu73) has joined #raspberrypi
[19:17] <Scunizi> TheLostAdmin: did you also have issues with the pi periodically freezing and coming back alive while ssh'd in?
[19:17] <TheLostAdmin> Scunizi, I'm not a big fan of Debian. It does not follow the norms of UNIX and it is badly documented when it's documented at all.
[19:18] <TheLostAdmin> Scunizi, nope. Both of my Pis (a B and a 2) run very reliably. I've overclocked both marginally (800Mhz and 1Ghz) without issues.

[19:18] <Scunizi> TheLostAdmin: I haven't gone that far yet. Basically trying to get a asterisk/fax server setup
[19:19] <TheLostAdmin> The only problem I've had is when I have a dirty shutdown and the SD card gets corrupted. So far rebooting with a forced FSCK (shutdown -rF now) worked on that.
[19:20] <TheLostAdmin> Scunizi, you may not need to overclock. If you do ... raspi-config has a menu for it. By far the safest and easiest way since it handles all the things that need to be adjusted when overclocking and it can be used to return to defaults.

[19:54] * moribund112 is now known as moribund112[away
[19:54] <Scunizi> which app to find the ip's?
[19:54] <autostatic> Yes
[19:54] <autostatic> How do you know the RPi has two IP's?
[19:55] <Scunizi> ah.. the back end of the router shows a dhcp wired address with a hostname of raspi2 (what I set) and the static I set doesn't show but is accessible from desktop using ssh
[19:55] <pksato> ips on that interface?
[19:55] <Scunizi> eth0 .. 2 addresses.
[19:56] <pksato> both ipv4?
[19:56] <CanDoo> not posable unless you aliased a second IP to the same interface
[19:56] <autostatic> There's your solution
[19:56] <Scunizi> pksato: yes
[19:56] <autostatic> Your router allocates a DHCP address to your RPi
[19:57] <pksato> dhcp normaly overwrite any other ips/
[19:57] <Scunizi> why would the router do that if the device doesn't request a dhcp?
[19:57] <autostatic> Maybe it's cached?
[19:57] <pksato> if set a static no interfaces and start a dhcp client, this replace static ip.
[19:58] <Scunizi> CanDoo: all I did was change the interfaces file to reflect a static setup and commented out all wlan references and the "auto" lines for eth0.. Still get 2 ip's
[19:58] <pksato> if have a local access, ifdown eth0; ifup eth0
[19:58] <pksato> even on remote.
[19:58] <autostatic> But apparently your RPi itself doesn't hae two IP's
[19:58] <autostatic> So the DHCP IP has to come from somewhere
[19:58] <Scunizi> exactly
[19:59] * edux (~edux@ has joined #raspberrypi
[20:00] <Scunizi> if the Pi is only setup in /etc/network/interfaces for static eth0 then the router is forcing an additional address via dhcp. That would be weird and out of character wouldn't it?

[20:09] <Scunizi> and it's on a fresh install. my google-fu isn't finding answers. I must be the anomolly which would be an anomolly if I wasn't :/

[20:10] <fred1807> Hello Guys. I am frying my brains trying to find out the best way to use a Raspberry in "kioski" mode, showing a playlist of videos, in loop mode, witohut glitches, without black screens... Do you think I may go for a html5 solution? (Using Chromium?) Or it will be too much for the Pi B+ memory?

[22:04] <kevireilly> Hey there. I commonly have a problem with wpa_supplicant where a connection is not established on boot. While pinging or attempting SSH, it seems to be a cycle of mostly “host is down” with some sprinkles of “operation timed out” and a pending request as if it is about to work
[22:05] <kevireilly> Any ideas what it might be? It seems to have happened to every pi i’ve had which also has always connected to the same wireless repeater, so I’m guessing this might be part of the problem

[22:08] <kevireilly> usually eventually works after a couple reboots, so that kind of makes it seems like it isn’t the router, but just curious if this is a common problem and if there are any common solutions
