[0:01] * knob (~knob@ has joined #raspberrypi
[0:01] * NahUndFern (~NahUndFer@unaffiliated/nahundfern) Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[0:01] <zesterer> I still don't really understand how it's possible to wire up multiple devices to the Raspberry Pi when they may use the same GPIO pins
[0:01] * Viper168 (~Viper@unaffiliated/viper168) Quit (Ping timeout: 264 seconds)
[0:02] <zesterer> If I wanted to use both an accelerometer and 2 motors at the same time, do I need to use some kind of expansion board?
[0:02] <pksato> zesterer: i2c bus.
[0:03] * TyrfingMjolnir (~Tyrfing@ has joined #raspberrypi
[0:03] <zesterer> pksato, Ok so presumably each device will have a unique way of being accessed via the protocol
[0:04] <pksato> i2c can handle 127 devices/address.
[0:04] <zesterer> Right
[0:04] <pksato> read about i2c bus. and others
[0:05] <pksato> SPI, I2S, one Wire (1W), etc
[0:06] <zesterer> pksato, I did this a few years ago, but it might need some re-reading, you are right
[0:06] * derk0pf (~derk0pf@p5DDB5462.dip0.t-ipconnect.de) Quit (Quit: ZzzZZzZZZ.)
[0:07] <ak2766> Xark - insterestingly, I've run apt-get upgrade and still cannot ping as normal user. also, iputils-ping is the latest version according to apt-cache policy...
[0:08] * annoymouse (uid11754@gateway/web/irccloud.com/x-bosprcmebpntowlq) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:08] * jrcharney (~jrcharney@2602:30a:2c3a:e240::46) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:08] <jrcharney> "Mr. Hammond, the phones are working."
[0:08] * WLL (~WLL@unaffiliated/wll) Quit (Quit: My Mac has gone to sleep. ZZZzzz…)
[0:09] <ak2766> iputils-ping:
[0:09] <ak2766> Installed: 3:20121221-5
[0:09] <ak2766> Candidate: 3:20121221-5
[0:10] <ak2766> I think I'll just leave it as setuid root for now - but most likely will get clobbered on next update and i'll have forgotten I did this - :(
[0:10] <Xark> ak2766: Yeah, the default Jessie is "bad", but the repo is fixed. I just verified ping did not work (with fresh Jessie from few days ago), that apt-get install --reinstall fixed it (with message "Setcap worked! Ping(6) is not suid!").
[0:10] <jrcharney> Speaking of phones, does anyone have any experience using foxfi or pdanet with raspberry pi. Verizon can suck a lemon if they think im'm going to pay an extra $20 for wifi hotspot.
[0:10] <ak2766> ok - let me try --reinstall and see what happens...
[0:11] <jrcharney> All I can google is how some guy with an iPhone did it but he did it using they regular hotspot set up...he must be made of money
[0:11] * WLL (~WLL@unaffiliated/wll) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:12] <Xark> jrcharney: Other non-Verizon vendors don't charge for hot-spot I believe.
[0:12] * bigx (~bigx@cam44-2-82-235-243-114.fbx.proxad.net) Quit (Ping timeout: 265 seconds)
[0:12] <jrcharney> Yeah...they do. See AT&T
[0:12] * Lep2 (~textual@d54C02C8C.access.telenet.be) has left #raspberrypi
[0:12] * RadarG (~radarg@cpe-76-185-214-7.satx.res.rr.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:12] <ak2766> ok - now working - bin/ping = cap_net_raw+ep
[0:12] <ak2766> thanks again, Xark...
[0:12] <jrcharney> I was so much easier when we could get away with it and when there was unlimited wifi
[0:13] <jrcharney> Oh, 2010, where did you go.
[0:13] <pyroxide> i want gigabit internet from cox
[0:14] <jrcharney> Somebody make a time machine with their raspberry pi. You can't kill Hitler because there'd be someone else who would be in Hitler's place. (See alternate history theory.)
[0:14] <jrcharney> Stealing that $1 million dollars from Donald Trump that his dad gave him that he "earned" would be better.
[0:14] <pyroxide> so what happens if you kill yourself?
[0:15] <jrcharney> pyroxide: Ever seen Looper?
[0:15] <pyroxide> yes
[0:15] <pyroxide> but that's just a movie
[0:15] <jrcharney> I haven't but I think it would be like that
[0:17] <jrcharney> Hitler was a bastard. But if you dig deeper into history, you would have known the Kaisers had much influence on him made him what he was.
[0:17] <jrcharney> Every darth vader has a Darth Sideous to influence them
[0:17] <pyroxide> darth vader is cool though
[0:17] <jrcharney> But enough about WWII history
[0:18] <jrcharney> But Darth Vader killed an entire planet! How come we don't hate him the same way we hate hitler for the Holocaust?
[0:18] <ak2766> Xark - any idea why they did not change version number on iputils-ping? that would fix the issue for everyone in one fell swoop - people don't normally use the --reinstall stanza...
[0:18] <Xark> ak2766: Not really.
[0:18] <pyroxide> because darth vader has the force.
[0:19] <jrcharney> I hope Star Wars 7 has a Alderaancaust Museum on a near by planet to remember all the Alderaanians who were vaprozied by the Death Star.
[0:20] * jrcharney hasn't seen Star Wars 7
[0:20] <pyroxide> you're asking for spoiers
[0:20] * jrcharney is starting to turn into Patton Oswalt
[0:20] <jrcharney> not really
[0:20] * wiiguy (~fake@unaffiliated/wiiguy) Quit (Quit: The Kirito is always right foundation. Grand reopening.)
[0:21] <jrcharney> Also, why doesn't chewy have a gray hair on his body? Even my dog got gray hairs when she got old.
[0:21] <Xark> ak2766: Looks like it may have been an upstream bug (not just Jessie).
[0:21] <pyroxide> chewy vs vader
[0:21] <jrcharney> Something to think about. Anyway, back to Raspberry Pi stuff
[0:23] * WLL (~WLL@unaffiliated/wll) Quit (Quit: My Mac has gone to sleep. ZZZzzz…)
[0:24] <ak2766> Xark: cheers, mate
[0:24] * travnewmatic (~travnewma@corp.external.dfw02.800hosting.net) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[0:25] <SpeedEvil> jrcharney: Lareal.
[0:26] <jrcharney> What about lareal?
[0:26] <jrcharney> OH! L'areal
[0:26] <SpeedEvil> I can't spell.
[0:26] <jrcharney> Just for Wookies
[0:26] * SpeedEvil sighs.
[0:26] * travnewmatic (~travnewma@corp.external.dfw02.800hosting.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:27] <jrcharney> "So natural, only your copilot will know its not your natural hair color"
[0:27] <pyroxide> matt damon
[0:27] <yoosi> Is there a theoretical maximum current the Pi Zero can draw from a 5V charger?
[0:28] <yoosi> Like assuming CPU is under maximum load and it is providing maximum current through it's OTG port
[0:28] <jrcharney> At any rate, do we got a channel on Freenode for Android support. My phone just won't stop bitching at me about "Unfortunately, Google Keyboard has stopped." I can't use my phone at all.
[0:28] <yoosi> And all GPIO are being utilized
[0:28] <yoosi> Same question applies to Pi 2 B
[0:28] * kbytes (~kbytes@unaffiliated/kbytes) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:29] * mlelstv (~mlelstv@hoppa.1st.de) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:29] * fennesz (~fennesz@adsl- has joined #raspberrypi
[0:29] <jrcharney> yoosi, It should be possible to use a 5V charger, as long as their is enough current as well
[0:29] * RadarG (~radarg@cpe-76-185-214-7.satx.res.rr.com) Quit (Quit: Colloquy for iPad - http://colloquy.mobi)
[0:29] <jrcharney> Check Amazon for one of those Anker phone chargers
[0:30] <yoosi> jrcharney: I'm aware of the 5V power requirements; I'm curious how many amps it could theoretically require
[0:30] <jrcharney> yoosi, then definitely. However, for Pi 2 B, you need to use two plugs for power to at least get 1A of current
[0:30] <jrcharney> Each USB port uses 500 mA
[0:31] <jrcharney> It should be similar to how I have my hacktop set up
[0:31] <yoosi> I'm not sure we're on the same page
[0:31] <jrcharney> You know, I'm going to go check. I have a second Pi2 for RetroPie. BRB
[0:32] <yoosi> I'd like to know how low I can get by in terms of Amp rating on a 5V charger and never run into issues regardless of the load
[0:33] <pyroxide> is there an extensible browser that cooperates faster that firefox for rpi?
[0:34] <Berg> if you want the html5 content then no pyroxide
[0:34] <pyroxide> boo
[0:34] <Berg> its not that slow
[0:34] <Berg> :)
[0:35] <pyroxide> maybe i can disable some bloat in firefox?
[0:35] <pyroxide> like Hello
[0:36] * kd7jwc (~manjaro-m@71-222-45-38.ptld.qwest.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:36] <Berg> iceweasel?
[0:36] <Berg> still modsilla
[0:36] <Berg> like hello
[0:37] <Berg> :)
[0:37] <pyroxide> Firefox Hello is some crap i'll nbever use
[0:37] * TyrfingMjolnir (~Tyrfing@ Quit (Quit: For Valhall!)
[0:37] <jrcharney> Need to find out what the ricers are using for browsing.
[0:37] <pyroxide> hahaha
[0:39] * Ezriilc (~Ezriilc@173-168-63-225.res.bhn.net) Quit (Quit: Going offline, see ya! (www.adiirc.com))
[0:39] <jrcharney> One thing I need to do is look at some of the termcap and terminfo profiles that can be used with fbterm and wonder why something more advanced isn't the default for most linux distros, especially the ones that support Unicode and 256 colors or more.
[0:40] * jrcharney is a proud filthy heathen according to Franklin Graham (who was just on NBC News). What a great time to be a Catholic!
[0:40] * jrcharney drinks his beer
[0:41] <pyroxide> i wonder if Firefox OS would perform on the pi
[0:41] <jrcharney> I just saw that on TV, though that was funny. We're all "godless" for some reason. I should really try to focus.
[0:42] <jrcharney> pyroxide: I saw someone mention they ported Chromium to ARM
[0:42] <jrcharney> so there's progress with that
[0:42] <pyroxide> yeah and i tried it
[0:42] <pyroxide> there is no ARC
[0:42] <jrcharney> How is it? Needs work or is it really bad?
[0:42] <jrcharney> ARM not ARC
[0:42] * TyrfingMjolnir (~Tyrfing@ has joined #raspberrypi
[0:43] <pyroxide> ARC is an app to run android apps in a window
[0:43] * samskiter (~sduke@w-109.cust-11137.ip.static.uno.uk.net) Quit (Ping timeout: 256 seconds)
[0:43] <jrcharney> Oh! You are using Android on Raspberry Pi. I though you were using Raspbian or something.
[0:44] <pyroxide> Chromium OS didn't do much of anything. i can't remember but it was likely too slow to run anything
[0:44] <pyroxide> also i doubt there are video drivers yet
[0:44] <jrcharney> I was talking about Chromium THE BROWSER not the operating system.
[0:44] * doomlord (~textual@host86-153-157-188.range86-153.btcentralplus.com) Quit (Quit: My MacBook Pro has gone to sleep. ZZZzzz…)
[0:44] <Berg> iceweasel runs fine on raspbian
[0:44] <pyroxide> i tried android, it was too slow.
[0:45] <Berg> I had a dog name iceweasel i shot it and made sushi
[0:45] <jrcharney> Still, theirs something about Firefox/Iceweasel and Chrome/Chromium that just want to consume everything like a fat kid at a pizza party.
[0:45] <Berg> sushi bar?
[0:46] <pyroxide> hardly any of the android apps work due to the video drivers not being complete yet for android
[0:46] <jrcharney> Berg: So he was a terrier who became teryaki?
[0:46] <Berg> ooo i like that jrcharney
[0:46] <pyroxide> also the app store considers it AndroidTV, also wifi doesn't work
[0:47] * [Butch] (~butch@ Quit (Ping timeout: 255 seconds)
[0:48] * philm88 (~phil@cpc9-pmth10-2-0-cust84.6-1.cable.virginm.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:48] <pyroxide> one thing that did work was Skype
[0:48] <krphop> not sure how you get fish meat from a dog...
[0:48] <pyroxide> very carefully
[0:49] * jrcharney needs to look in his basement for a VGA to RCA Yellow or RCA RGB cable. I have a feeling my Retro Pi is going to be used at some place that doesn't use HDMI
[0:50] <Berg> rap the dog meat in fish
[0:50] <pyroxide> jrcharney, S-Video!
[0:52] * philm88 (~phil@cpc9-pmth10-2-0-cust84.6-1.cable.virginm.net) Quit (Ping timeout: 260 seconds)
[0:52] * Sisco (Sisco@unaffiliated/sisco) Quit (Ping timeout: 265 seconds)
[0:53] <jrcharney> pyroxide: that's certainly on the table. I found an adapter
[0:54] <zesterer> pksato, Should I be running motors over i2c as well?
[0:55] * TheLostAdmin (~TheLostAd@75-119-250-63.dsl.teksavvy.com) Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[0:55] <jrcharney> I have an HDMI to VGA & Red-White RCA adapter. I found a VGA to RCA yellow that also has an S-Video put too. Not sutre if that works though.
[0:56] <myself> There's no standard pinout for those things, check with a meter
[0:56] * Gnirut (~Gnirut@89-157-175-137.rev.numericable.fr) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:56] <jrcharney> I'm hoping I have an RCA cable somewhere around here. I should. Doing this sort of stuff is much harder now that theirs no Radio Shack on my end of town. I have to go cross county to go to Micro Center or order something on Amazon.
[0:58] * shantorn (~shantorn@71-222-45-38.ptld.qwest.net) Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[0:59] <myself> a hundred connectors and a spool of cable to go between them, a soldering iron and heatgun and heatshrink tubing, and a cabinet to keep it all in, will cost you less than four cables at radio shack would have
[0:59] * RadarG (~radarg@cpe-76-185-214-7.satx.res.rr.com) has joined #raspberrypi

[0:59] <myself> just gotta get your hands dirty, which is kinda the point of getting into hardware hacking, no?
[0:59] * defsdoor (~andy@cpc73037-sutt4-2-0-cust62.19-1.cable.virginm.net) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[0:59] <jrcharney> myself: true.
[1:00] * AndrevS (~andrevs@2001:982:27e5:1:225:b3ff:fec0:41e1) Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[1:00] <jrcharney> If there's a soution that I can plug together rather than solder, the better.
[1:00] <jrcharney> The way we make electronics needs to be more Lego-like
[1:01] * jrcharney can solder, just would rather not
[1:01] * RadarG (~radarg@cpe-76-185-214-7.satx.res.rr.com) Quit (Client Quit)
[1:02] * spybert (~spybert@c-50-173-18-125.hsd1.ca.comcast.net) has left #raspberrypi
[1:03] <zesterer> Is there such thing as an i2c DC motor controller?
[1:06] <krphop> myself: i disagree - https://www.radioshack.com/products/3-ft-stereo-patch-cable?variant=5717742341
[1:08] * dalmatHG (~yaaic@unaffiliated/dalmathg) Quit (Quit: Yaaic - Yet another Android IRC client - http://www.yaaic.org)
[1:11] * Strykar (wakkawakka@2604:8800:100:8277:14f3:a957:dd7b:120b) Quit (Ping timeout: 240 seconds)
[1:12] <myself> okay, that gives me a budget of $36. I can get 50 RCA connectors for $5.50 shipped, and 50 TRS connectors for $7 shipped, a soldering iron for for $3.82, 10 feet of heatshink for $5.32, a plastic toolbox for $5, and the only tricky part is the heatgun so let's use a lighter, $0.99 at the corner store.
[1:14] <krphop> and this 'spool' of cable?
[1:14] <myself> grab a 50' dvr camera cable for $6 and dice it up for the wire itself
[1:14] * spybert (~spybert@c-50-173-18-125.hsd1.ca.comcast.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:14] <krphop> i'd like to see the 50 rca connectors for 5.50
[1:14] <myself> I own a bunch, they're not premium quality but I have yet to have one fail in use.
[1:15] <krphop> ok, but i'm curious where i can buy them
[1:15] <myself> http://www.ebay.com/itm/160936633212
[1:15] <krphop> same with a 50' dvd cable for $6
[1:15] <myself> http://www.ebay.com/itm/151709423162
[1:15] <myself> anything else?
[1:16] <myself> or go for the 100' for $9 and economize in greater bulk
[1:16] <krphop> nice
[1:16] <myself> Heh. I got sick of trying to stock every cable in every pinout, so I just keep parts to make whatever.
[1:17] <myself> Kinda been doing this a while.
[1:17] <krphop> i do as well, was just seeing if you could back it up ;-)
[1:17] * myself bows
[1:17] <krphop> but i usually have more than $9 of parts in a rca cable
[1:18] <knob> Is there a bare server image of Ubuntu for the rPi? Or is the one on this link it? https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ARM/RaspberryPi
[1:18] <knob> I downloaded the one in the link, yet it has a full GUI (Mate)
[1:18] <myself> If it's going on stage or something where a failure would be more than an inconvenience, yeah. Quality parts, glue-lined shrink, etc.
[1:19] * Gnirut (~Gnirut@89-157-175-137.rev.numericable.fr) has left #raspberrypi
[1:19] <krphop> knob: there's a raspian lite version, but not sure about ubuntu

[2:00] <irc_smirk> hi
[2:01] <Chillum> lol, compiling on a Pi is like compiling many years ago
[2:01] <irc_smirk> anyone use this https://www.adafruit.com/products/2718
[2:01] <irc_smirk> is it worth getting?
[2:02] <Chillum> interesting
[2:02] * samskiter (~sduke@w-109.cust-11137.ip.static.uno.uk.net) Quit (Ping timeout: 265 seconds)
[2:02] <Chillum> looks a lot better than those terrible resistive tft touch screens
[2:03] <Chillum> looks like a proper smart phone style touch screen
[2:03] <Chillum> I have no idea how good it is though
[2:03] <Chillum> ohh neat it uses the DSI port
[2:04] <irc_smirk> well someone is kickstarting a case for them for only $20
[2:04] <Chillum> high bandwidth, hardware controlled bus

[2:06] <irc_smirk> its the official pi screen

[4:02] <ziesemer> Anyone up to help refresh me on some basic electronics review? Trying to monitor (on/off) another 120 VAC circuit through GPIO on the Pi. Figured the safest way to do this is with an old 5 VDC cell phone charger, then use a voltage divider to bring that down to the necessary 3.3 VDC max. However, I want to be able to sense the "off" almost immediately - so to drain the remaining voltage, should I just lower the resistance across the
[4:02] <Tenkawa> i hear ya
[4:02] <SpeedEvil> ziesemer: that works, yes
[4:03] <Tenkawa> i'm about to get some sleep too i think
[4:03] <ziesemer> The common values I see for this are 18K and 33K. At 5 VDC, this is going to only draw something like 0.0001 A, and is going to take forever to dissipate for a 0.55 A supply, correct?
[4:03] <SpeedEvil> ziesemer: not quite
[4:03] <SpeedEvil> ziesemer: the supply will probably draw some internally
[4:03] <SpeedEvil> what do you mean by almost immediately

[4:05] <SpeedEvil> reasonable.
[4:06] <SpeedEvil> That is half watt - two 100 ohm resistors would be a quarter watt each
[4:06] <B0g4r7> Is it OK to wire i2c in a tee or star formation, or should it always be a chain?
[4:06] <SpeedEvil> It doesn't matter as long as the chain is very short
[4:07] <ziesemer> Good thing I happened to get a bag of 1/2 W resistors - aren't that much bigger, and then I thought I'd have some room to work with. The circuit being monitored should only be on for ~10 seconds at a time if operating normally.
[4:07] <SpeedEvil> what speed do you hope to get to, and what is the total wire length?

[4:37] <Kamilion> first time I used iptables
[4:37] <Kamilion> was using ipchains for ages before that, heh
[4:37] <Tenkawa> yeah that was a neat setup
[4:38] <Tenkawa> i had been on ncr svr4 before and was so limited by its setup
[4:38] * Karlton (~Karlton@unaffiliated/karlton) has left #raspberrypi

[4:38] * Kamilion had a 386DX2/66 with two 3com 3C509b-combo cards, one on 10baseT from the alcatel 1000 DSL modem, one on 10base2 to the rest of our win3.1/95/linux home network.
[4:38] <ziesemer> For < 1 Gbps connections, anyway, at least.
[4:38] <Tenkawa> nice
[4:39] <ali1234> i could never get my 3c509b to work on linux
[4:39] <Kamilion> ziesemer: Not too many things rely on 1 million + UDP packet routing capabilities
[4:39] <Kamilion> ali1234: yeah, I had to email crynwr a couple times to get things fixed on occasion
[4:39] <Kamilion> it always wanted to use the stupid 15 pin AUI port by default on the 'combo' model
[4:40] <ali1234> i don't think it ever recognized it for me
[4:40] <Kamilion> Did you have a system new enough to have a "PNPBIOS"?
[4:40] <ali1234> in the end i just bought a different network card
[4:40] <ali1234> no, it was a 386...
[4:40] <Kamilion> they were notorious due to the fact that they were jumperless
[4:41] <Kamilion> and only really worked on 486s or later 386DX2/DX4 models
[4:41] <ali1234> i bet i still have the damn thing
[4:42] <Kamilion> the biggest issue was if your board couldn't do PNP negotiation, they just wouldn't work at all. They fixed that much later on once the linux kernel could handle PNP initialization on it's own
[4:42] <Tenkawa> did any of you ever have to deal with v.35 cables?
[4:42] <Kamilion> heh. Yeah.
[4:42] <Tenkawa> good ole x.25
[4:42] <Kamilion> only a few times though, thankfully.

[4:43] <Kamilion> yeah
[4:43] <Tenkawa> yeah the bncs that always liked to break
[4:43] <Kamilion> didn't sync on green either
[4:43] <Tenkawa> at least on mine

[4:44] <Kamilion> it got a little dim with 3, but still worked.
[4:44] <pyroxide> what dot pitch is that? because cell phones are overkill
[4:44] * Kamilion grew up in silicon valley, dumpster diving

[5:05] <pyroxide> idc what linus thinks, i only care what i think
[5:06] <Kamilion> I consider other opinions of people I have some degree of respect for in deriving "what I think".
[5:06] <Kamilion> I do not exist in a vaccuum, after all.
[5:06] <pyroxide> yes but linus is one person
[5:06] <Kamilion> He's also an asshole and very blunt about it.
[5:07] <Kamilion> I prefer blunt and honest people like that.
[5:07] <Kamilion> if I wanted smoke blown up my ass, I'd go to a strip club and objectify women with my time. *shrug*
[5:08] <pyroxide> doesn't linus have a hot daughter?
[5:08] <Kamilion> like some presidential candidate wannabees
[5:08] <Kamilion> dunno, I'm demisexual.
[5:09] <Kamilion> I cannot quantify things such as 'hot'
[5:09] <pyroxide> my GPU runs 'hot'
[5:09] <pyroxide> so hot that i had to resort to water quilling
[5:09] <Kamilion> the two symbols you are using may be interchangable; but mean vastly different things in context.
[5:10] <Kamilion> sorry, I play with neural nets and AI all day; I'm used to framing problems to them.
[5:11] <Kamilion> "no, no, two different meanings of 'hot', stupid overloaded english slang..."
[5:12] <pyroxide> i overload my functions
[5:12] <Kamilion> Trying to describe "fresh" would be just as interesting.

[5:39] <pyroxide> oh no!
[5:40] <B0g4r7> I've got 2 ADS1115s on the i2c bus. I'm using them to take differential samples. The sampled voltages are all pretty small (< 1V), however there is A 24v difference between the inputs going to the first module and those going to the second.

[5:41] <B0g4r7> I assumed that everything would be properly isolated, and that the current would not find a viable path between the modules. Apparently I assumed wrongly.
[5:42] <B0g4r7> Also apparently that path passed through a sensitive part of the Pi since it's now deadish.
[5:42] <ziesemer> :-(
[5:43] <B0g4r7> Indeed.
[5:43] <ziesemer> I'm using a Pi 1 that I had demoted after a Pi 2 upgrade for exactly this reason. If I goof, a little less $ (and an excuse to upgrade when complete).

[11:12] <deshipu> that would depends on the window manager you are using, I suppose
[11:12] <deshipu> since you need to do it after X starts

[11:19] <trqx> Langley: you mean you want your script to start with X? how do you start X usually? it's usually just a matter of adding it to ~/.xinitrc
[11:19] <zirkuswurstikus> after testing and reading a lot I have to ask you which software/os should is use for my rpi+hifiberry? I would like to access my local music libary (subsonic/ripped flac) and spotify. I would like to play local and streamed music from one playlist. it would be nice to have a good search functionality. I dont care much about the distri while FreeBSD and Debian would be my prefered choice.
[11:19] <zirkuswurstikus> From my understanding I have currently two choices. KODI + Spotimc or a Mopidy based setup. But I'm open to other suggestions.
[11:19] * frerich (~frerich@kde/raabe) has left #raspberrypi
[11:20] <Langley> trqx: I just need the kweb browser to start on boot, if it starts with X or in a script that starts matchbox or whatever doesn't matter. I can't find any .xinitrc file

[11:24] <zirkuswurstikus> trqx: I was running it on my x86 thinclient also via a distri called volumino. so it should work
[11:25] <zirkuswurstikus> trqx: just the masses of possibilies where driving me crazy :)
[11:25] <trqx> and if it fails and you only want your pi as a music server then try a dedicated distro
[11:26] <zirkuswurstikus> trqx: yeah, just for music. for kodi/plex i usually use an AFTV
[11:26] <trqx> ok then, I didn't try much dedicated music distro as I don't have a DAC yet
[11:27] <zirkuswurstikus> trqx: also the chromecast audio is not to bad at all, but my marantz dont support optical and on the pi I can add a good DAC (hifiberry and my FiiO x3I)
[11:27] <trqx> Langley: I don't have a pi with raspbian and X with me, sorry I don't remember how X is managed per default
[11:29] <trqx> zirkuswurstikus: do you know if hifiberry have any advantage over usb sound cards? I'm considering buying a DAC for my pi for some time now
[11:30] <Langley> sigh...
[11:30] <trqx> Langley: but you can try creating a file called ~/.xinitrc and put something like:
[11:30] <buZz> fiio <3
[11:30] <trqx> yourscript.sh &
[11:30] <trqx> exec matchbox
[11:30] <trqx> or watever matchbox binary name is
[11:31] <trqx> then try starting X with startx
[11:31] <zirkuswurstikus> trqx: the hifiberry is easy to handle and has a good sound also you save a USB port. while it does not compare to my FiiO x3 (DAP + DAC). If you are not an Audioholic like me, I can recomment a Hifiberry

[11:36] <Langley> I don't understand... so I can just pyt script.sh in the .xinitrc file? If my script.sh already contains matchbox?
[11:36] <buZz> zirkuswurstikus: still have to laugh at anyone owning one though :D
[11:36] <dreamon> is it possible to start raspberryPi direkt in console with my wished programm .. so I can see all its outputs in that starting console?

[11:49] <buZz> so it wont actually turn off
[11:50] <buZz> preventing the monitor to say that signal turned off
[11:50] <Peetz0r> but I don't run X. I run OSMC (which is kodi directly outputting to framebuffer I think)

[12:14] * amigojapan (~amigojapa@unaffiliated/amigojapan) has joined #raspberrypi
[12:14] <mlelstv> I think xset will just make the display black, but not power down the monitor/TV
[12:14] <Peetz0r> xset can do dpms signaling

[12:14] <mlelstv> yes, but only if the driver supports it
[12:14] <gordonDrogon> man setterm
[12:15] <Peetz0r> tvservice -o just disables the hdmi output without signaling anything to the display, which makes the display think that I inplugged my cable

[12:20] <Peetz0r> ...if my display supports CEC

[12:20] <mlelstv> that seems to be the only method to do this via HDMI

[12:22] <mlelstv> it's possible that then you cannot control the monitor.

[12:29] <mlelstv> sounds like it does then
[12:29] <mlelstv> I would give cec-client a try
[12:30] <Peetz0r> that control signal doesn't have to be CEC, right?
[12:30] <Peetz0r> I mean, the signal that my desktop sends to the display is not CEC, right?

[12:30] <mlelstv> well "control signal" isn't well defined, can mean anything.
[12:31] <mlelstv> I don't know what your desktop does. But some graphics cards support CEC but you often need a special driver to make Windows use it.
[12:31] <mlelstv> it all depends
[12:32] <Peetz0r> I haven't used windows in years, but I know for a fact that my desktop with linux does not support cec

[14:53] <gordonDrogon> AndreeeCZ, on a 40-pin GPIO Pi, there are 27 usable GPIO pins for input/output. 29 if you count the 2 extra I2C pins that you're not supposed to use.
[14:53] <engblom> I am having a 2.4A power adapter, so there should be plenty enough of power
[14:54] <AndreeeCZ> gordonDrogon, i see! thanks for this valuable info

[15:03] <engblom> Is there any other distro I could try out? Any stable distro with oracle-java8 and unprivileged access to /sys/class/gpio/* and /sys/bus/w1/devices/ would work for me
[15:04] <pigrit> engblom: https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=62371 8188eu drivers, post updated mid december
[15:04] <gordonDrogon> engblom, raspbian has normal access to /sys/class/gpio now - has done for a while AIUI, and if not, you can always use the gpio command to export the devices you need - that changes ownership to that of the calling user...
[15:04] <engblom> pigrit: Nothing special in syslog as far as I can find
[15:04] <engblom> gordonDrogon: I know, I am using Raspbian but I wanted to try something else because of the unstable WiFi
[15:04] <pigrit> yeah there never bloody is
[15:05] <mlelstv> engblom, what about a different wifi adapter?
[15:05] <gordonDrogon> engblom, any instability will be the fault of the kernel, not the distro.
[15:05] <gordonDrogon> I'm having no issues whatsoever with the foundation approved ones - I've switched entirely to them now.
[15:06] <engblom> gordonDrogon: Different distros got different kernels. Raspbian Jessie runs 4.x and 4.x is terrible with Wifi. Ubuntu and iwlwifi and kernel 4.x does not work either well
[15:06] <pyroxide> i bought a cheap Rosewill Wifi Adapter and i get constant disconnections with it. But used the slightly larger one from my old laptop and it works great
[15:07] <gordonDrogon> engblom, I disagree. I'm running 4.1 and see no issues at all with my wi-fi adapters.
[15:07] <mlelstv> engblom, how far away is your wifi access point?
[15:08] <engblom> mlelstv: At this moment 4-5 meter
[15:08] <pyroxide> engblom, any walls in between?
[15:08] <engblom> But it workes even with the double distance at another place in the house when I tested earlier
[15:09] <mlelstv> I have a RTL8188CUS, works fine until I get too close (less than 1.5m) to the access point.
[15:09] <engblom> It needs to go through one door. But it has been connecting from one place where it needed to go through 3 walls

[16:22] <gordonDrogon> chesty, er... sort of. it will depend on the language you're coding in.
[16:22] <chesty> I get my stuff from ebay, and sometimes there's a pi markup. ie "blah-xyz for arduino" $4, but "blah-xyz for pi" $10
[16:22] <gordonDrogon> chesty, I've seen people use the mpu-6050 in the past. There's also the foundations own sense hat to use
[16:23] <gordonDrogon> the Pi is a 3.3v device ... Arduino 5v.

[16:23] <chesty> or can that be 5v or 3.3v?
[16:23] <gordonDrogon> technically it's a pull-down bus, but if a device were to pull it up to 5v then it has the potential to damage the Pi.
[16:24] <gordonDrogon> in practice I've not seen any issues though.
[16:24] <gordonDrogon> the Pi as I2C master pulls the I2C bus high to 3.3v.

[16:54] <zinit> on hyper-v you can't use 2nd gen.vm for linux (secureboot's a pain in the ass to set up in vm's)
[16:55] <zinit> (for linux anyway.. worked fine in SLES, but havent been able to get it to work in any other distro

[18:00] <gordonDrogon> you know - adding a new group is fairly trivial. it should not be a reason to jump to a new distribution.
[18:00] <traeak> running void linux with a wireless dongle
[18:01] <traeak> trying to figure out which memory usage numbers are the best ones
[18:01] <gordonDrogon> biggest is best...
[18:02] <traeak> htop? free? ps?
[18:02] <gordonDrogon> plain old 'top.
[18:02] <gordonDrogon> however you need to understand how Linux allocates & uses memory to make sense of any of them.
[18:02] <traeak> top says '16592' used with 3 getty's
[18:03] <traeak> process and also buffer/cache
[18:03] <gordonDrogon> the getty processes will be sharing the same code image in ram.
[18:03] <traeak> ttop uses 2416 by itself
[18:03] <gordonDrogon> you can waste too much time just looking at these numbers.
[18:03] <traeak> sshd another 3616
[18:03] <gordonDrogon> do you think this is a problem?
[18:03] <traeak> more than that
[18:04] <gordonDrogon> if running 'top' press M (capital M)
[18:04] <traeak> nah, just curiuos how much systemd hogs

[22:00] <Chillum> finally got a Pi Zero!
[22:00] <Lyka> yay!
[22:01] <Chillum> I want to make a way smaller version of the raspberry pi thermal printer
[22:02] <Peetz0r> I just deviced on a way to properly disable my monitor when I tell it to
[22:02] <Peetz0r> it involges a power mosfet and a gpio port
[22:02] <Chillum> relay?
[22:02] <Chillum> hehe I was close
[22:03] <Peetz0r> the nice thing is that my display is powered trough a 19V brick, not directly with 230V
[22:03] <Peetz0r> makes this project fall inside my safety comfort zone :)
[22:03] <Chillum> as long as you don't open it up you should be fine
[22:03] * clonak (~clonak@ Quit (Ping timeout: 272 seconds)
[22:04] <Peetz0r> I have opened up displays before
[22:04] <Peetz0r> mostof those are sortof fine now :p
[22:04] <Peetz0r> the thing is that having 230V on a bare pcb is not my idea of a proper solution
[22:04] <Chillum> though if you are sweaty 19V can conduct through skin. People picking up car batteries who press it against a sweaty shirt can learn this the hard way
[22:04] <Peetz0r> 19v would be fine tough
[22:05] <Peetz0r> okay, but it's still way better than 230 :)
[22:05] <Chillum> yup
[22:05] <Tenkawa> Chillum: got my pi zero two days ago... it has been really fun
[22:05] <Peetz0r> and I might make this so it fits inside my raspi case
[22:05] <Peetz0r> which is relatively spacious

[22:09] <Chillum> then it just need a barrel jack for power and wifi dongle and I have a portable wifi printer
[22:09] <JK-47> Honestly, I dontknow why people would get that vs a better bluetooth POS system for a tablet or phone.
[22:09] <Chillum> the printer uses up to 1.5A but I have a usb battery that does 2A
[22:09] <Peetz0r> because this one just looks cool
[22:10] <Peetz0r> maybe even cute

[22:11] <Peetz0r> point of shit?
[22:11] <JK-47> point of sale
[22:11] <Peetz0r> ikr :p
[22:12] <Chillum> wifi printers have such poor security, they are constantly being hacked
[22:12] <Chillum> then used as a pivot point inside the network
[22:12] <Chillum> thye have about the same quality software as consumer routers
[22:12] <JK-47> most pico sized printers are bluetooth.
[22:12] <Peetz0r> I once had a root shell on a webcam
[22:13] <Peetz0r> the webcam was in a hotel lan
[22:13] <Peetz0r> if I wanted to, well, yeah...
[22:13] <Peetz0r> (I responsibly disclosed the thing and it is fixed)
[22:14] <Peetz0r> (the fix was outsourcing the whole webcam thingie to a company that specialises in internetr-facing webcams)
[22:14] <Chillum> internet enabled consumer devices are low hanging fruit for hackers. It is rarely in the cost model of the company to do anything more than the minumum of software development
[22:15] <Chillum> video cameras are the creepiest though
[22:15] <Peetz0r> the only thing that happened here was that the default password got changed into... the name of the hotel :p

[22:21] <ShapeShifter499> do I need any special stuff for usb mouses on the PiZero? I have a usb mouse that does not get detected but can be verified to work on a arch linux laptop
[22:21] <ShapeShifter499> I thought it was the power so I bumped it up to 5v 2amp from 5v 1amp

[22:24] <Tenkawa> ShapeShifter499: does lsusb show the usb controller at least?
[22:25] <ShapeShifter499> Tenkawa: yes, I have a usb keyboard that does work

[22:27] <Tenkawa> can you ssh into it?
[22:27] <ShapeShifter499> this is being displayed on a huge 42" tv

[22:27] <ShapeShifter499> Tenkawa: no I cannot, no net yet
[22:27] <Tenkawa> that is really odd
[22:28] <Tenkawa> oh... wait..
[22:28] <Lyka> not without the wifi thing i removed to save power...damn
[22:28] <Tenkawa> what kind of otg adapter are you using?
[22:28] <Lyka> i can't safely turn it off

[22:30] <Lyka> and there are no buttons...
[22:30] <Tenkawa> do you not have a serial cable?
[22:31] <Lyka> serial?
[22:31] <Tenkawa> ShapeShifter499: i think you got to have a otg cable
[22:31] <ShapeShifter499> Tenkawa: the one I have is a usb one and I think it's busted
[22:31] <pyroxide> i blew up my install's audio functionality....backups are a good thing...
[22:31] <Lyka> what's a serial cable?
[22:31] <Tenkawa> Lyka: doesnt the a+ have pins you can connect a serial pin cable to?
[22:31] <pyroxide> Lyka, some crap from the 80's
[22:31] <Lyka> i assume so
[22:31] <ShapeShifter499> Tenkawa: I had a "otg" one that had the 5th pin and 4th pin connected together but the pi wouldn't even detect any usb devices at all, not even the keyboard then
[22:31] <Lyka> but i don't have a serial cable
[22:32] <ShapeShifter499> the other cable allows the keyboard to work
[22:32] <Tenkawa> ShapeShifter499: thats odd.. considering the zero is suppose to need otg
[22:32] <Tenkawa> as far as I knew
[22:32] <Lyka> i have an idea
[22:32] <Tenkawa> Lyka: hmm... without some way to re-init the connection.... not sure what you can do besides pull power
[22:33] <Tenkawa> unless you can get to the console
[22:33] <Lyka> i may be able to use an arduino to facilitate it
[22:33] <Lyka> bbiab diner
[22:33] <Tenkawa> good luck
[22:33] <ShapeShifter499> Tenkawa: someone in the #rapbian channel says the female to female usb + a regular micro-b cable should work
[22:34] <Tenkawa> i cant say either way without readinhg the specs again
[22:34] <Lyka> unplugged it
[22:34] <ShapeShifter499> I was reading I could maybe just otg it to my laptop.... like how android has ADB
[22:35] <t3chguy> ShapeShifter499: an OTG Adapter is passive, so yeah that cable combo would work instead of a proper OTG Cable
[22:35] <TrekBike> Yes I've lost my entire investment in oil.

[23:07] <gordonDrogon> you can only ask for a pint in a pub - it's normally sold in metric in shops (0.5l, 0.33l are typical)
[23:07] <nyt> long island is a sad sad place
[23:07] <gordonDrogon> milk is also sold by the pint, but a lot have now moved to a litre.
[23:07] <gordonDrogon> road distances are miles.
[23:07] <gordonDrogon> but apart from that :-)
[23:08] <shauno> gordonDrogon: 3.5mm is 1/8th. 6.3mm is 1/4 and 2.5mm is 3/32

[23:08] <nyt> lucky you escaped
[23:08] <nyt> still stuck here
[23:09] <gordonDrogon> the 3.5 -> 1/8 is a somewhat approximate conversion though.
[23:09] <gordonDrogon> I wonder what the real size is - is it really 3.5mm or really 1/8th?
[23:09] <deshipu> shauno: I thought that 2.5mm is 1/10?
[23:09] <gordonDrogon> 25.4mm to the inch.
[23:10] <gordonDrogon> don't think I've even got any 3.5mm cables to check...

[23:11] <encore> in ireland road distance signs used to be in kilometres and speed signs in miles per hour. it was very confusing.
[23:11] <deshipu> my calipers say my 3.5mm plug is actually 3.4mm
[23:11] <shauno> I'm not sure either. I think 1/4 and 1/8 were originally in standard, but 2.5 was originally in metric

[23:12] <shauno> ireland has speed limits in kph now. took me a while to get used to seeing speed limits set at 120
[23:12] <Spiffy> 120, within city limits? Nice
[23:13] <shauno> nah, 120 is motorways
[23:13] <shauno> (freeways
[23:13] <Spiffy> Haha, I know :P
[23:13] <Spiffy> It's 130 here, and 50 within city limits.
[23:13] <Lyka> i'm used to a max speed limit of 55*5/3 km/s
[23:13] <Lyka> or whatever the conversion formula is
[23:13] * ctrlshftn (ctrlshftn@gateway/shell/bnc4free/x-zlsnvrilpgmpfstp) has joined #raspberrypi
[23:14] <shauno> we still have pints in pints though (but it is more metric than the UK overall)
[23:14] <gordonDrogon> ok. found a 3.5mm jack plug - measured it and its 3.5mm.
[23:14] <Lyka> metric pint?
[23:15] <encore> uk / us gallon?
[23:15] <Chillum> we only use pints for beer
[23:16] <Chillum> though a 1/2 litre is more common
[23:16] <Myrtti> Chillum: and milk
[23:16] <CoJaBo> How do I tell if any of the wifi cards I have can do master/AP mode?
[23:16] <Chillum> nah we measure milk in litres
[23:16] <Myrtti> my milk canister disagrees
[23:16] <Chillum> if someone offered me a pint of milk I would wonder if they meant beer
[23:17] <shauno> if someone offered me a pint of milk, I'd start looking for new friends :/

[23:33] * holodoc (~holodoc@unaffiliated/holodoc) has joined #raspberrypi
[23:34] <myself> yeah, if you don't have a whole separate power system for the analog path, it's always gonna suck
[23:34] * zupzupper (~Zup@ Quit (Ping timeout: 260 seconds)
[23:35] <myself> expensive soundcards are expensive because they have things like isolated dc-dc converters to derive those power supplies, and piles of L-C filters to make 'em buttery smooth before using 'em for audio.
[23:35] <mlelstv> for the analog output you don't need a separate power system.
[23:36] <myself> so where does the analog output driver get its power? what's the noise on that rail? how's the ground noise, and how is its input referenced?
[23:36] <pyroxide> does the digital output have that problem?
[23:36] * zupzupper (~Zup@ has joined #raspberrypi
[23:36] * forest (~foresto@unaffiliated/foresto) Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[23:36] <mlelstv> no
[23:36] <myself> digital output shouldn't, no. Try that and see if you get the same noise with some other device doing the dac step
[23:37] <myself> if you still have noise on the digital, it's a software/timing problem, totally different
[23:37] <mlelstv> the analog output is PWM with a simple RC low pass.
[23:39] <pyroxide> gonna try bluetooth as i don't have any dollars for fancy hardware

[23:42] <CoJaBo> I've found a page each saying they work and don't work; how do I actually check?
[23:43] <mlelstv> you test the proposed configurations.

[23:45] <mlelstv> this one explains that the standard hostapd doesn't support the RTL8188CUS, but you can get one from edimax.
