[0:20] <nabblet> hi, is there any difference between powering the raspi 3 via power supply or usb in terms of save power consumption?
[0:21] <SpeedEvil> No.
[0:21] * HtheB (~HtheB@Maemo/community/ex-council/HtheB) Quit ()

[0:23] <SpeedEvil> not safe power
[0:23] <SpeedEvil> I'm not quite sure if the two inputs are seperate
[0:24] <zacts> is the rpi mathematica the full mathematica?
[0:24] <zacts> or is it just the mathematica viewer app? (I'm installing raspbian now on my rpi2)
[0:24] <nabblet> SpeedEvil: oh :) Good thing you caught that
[0:28] <nabblet> SpeedEvil: the specs of the scanner say up to 9W in operation, 5W in idle/sleep

[1:19] <Gators> Well, once again, irc chatrooms are about as helpful as always.
[1:19] <Gators> fuck you all
[1:20] <oq> mmmmk
[1:20] <BurtyB> you might want to check the channel rules...
[1:20] * Redfoxmoon (~Kitt3n@unaffiliated/kitt3n) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:23] <Gators> Oh, so you are there
[1:23] <Gators> I see, someone comes in, nicely asks for help, nothing.
[1:23] <Gators> Someone bitches you out.....and you're on top of that.
[1:25] <oq> it boggles the mind how someone can act so entitled
[1:25] <Gators> I've put up with nothing but high and mighty bullshit everytime I ask a simple question about linux, and personally, I'm sick and tired of linux geeks.
[1:26] <Gators> Now, if someone in here is actually helpful, I'd be most appreciative if I could get a simple answer. Otherwise, I can go back to cursing.
[1:26] * SilverKey (~SilverKey@rrcs-67-79-8-126.sw.biz.rr.com) Quit (Quit: Halted.)
[1:26] <oq> you already burnt that bridge the first time you raged

[1:26] * theseb (d807e14e@gateway/web/freenode/ip. has joined #raspberrypi
[1:27] <theseb> how set up wifi with password? i added code to wpa_supplicant.conf but still issues?!
[1:27] <theseb> anyone else have issues getting wifi to autoconnect to encrypted server?
[1:27] <Gators> I've been googlilng all over the placve, I can't get th is to work at all
[1:27] * swift110-phone (~swift110-@unaffiliated/swift110) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:27] <theseb> Gators: what's your issue?
[1:27] <ozzzy> Gators, you'd prefer a line of people saying 'I don't know'
[1:27] <Gators> All I want to do is map a damn windows share on my raspbery pi, something I could do in 10 seconds on any windows machine
[1:28] <theseb> Gators: have you done it before on a linux desktop like ubuntu?
[1:28] <Gators> So far I've gotten it to work manually from the terminal, but editing fstab as that link instructs does nothing, and I don't even have an error message or anything indicating why it doesn't work
[1:28] <ozzzy> Gators, install samba and configure it... it's not rocket science. there are lots of example conf files out there
[1:28] * Sisco_ (~Sisco@unaffiliated/sisco/x-4156292) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:29] <chithead> theseb: using raspbian? https://wiki.debian.org/WiFi/HowToUse#wpa_supplicant
[1:29] <feliks> can somebody please tell me whether omxplayer already has built-in youtube-dl support like mpv?
[1:29] <theseb> Gators: if you can get it working on command line just add that line to /etc/rc.local !
[1:30] * sir_galahad_ad (~aaron@cpe-67-255-221-1.maine.res.rr.com) Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)

[1:37] * Wolf1098 (wolfie@wolfietech.ca) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:37] <Gators> I thought maybe the line exit 0 at the end indicated the end, and putting it after that might be why it's not working, but you're telling me it should be at the end. Well, it's there, it doesn't work.
[1:37] <Gators> And once again, no error, no reason, nothing to go on to troubleshoot, for a simple process that takes 10 seconds in windows
[1:37] <theseb> Gators: put it before the exit 0....sorry....

[1:37] <Gators> Ah, excellent.
[1:37] <Gators> will try that, thanks.
[1:37] <theseb> Gators: if you want troubleshooting maybe add a echo "Did this run?" > /tmp/test to it also
[1:38] <Gators> theseb: still empty
[1:39] <theseb> Gators: add this...-> echo "This is a test" > /tmp/test before and after exit 0
[1:39] <theseb> Gators: if you see /tmp/test after you reboot it ran
[1:39] * Berg (~chatzilla@pa49-182-132-76.pa.nsw.optusnet.com.au) has joined #raspberrypi

[1:41] <theseb> Gators: show me the contents
[1:43] <Gators> There's a bunch of comments, there's somethingi about displaying my ip address using printf, there'an if, there's a fi with nothing under it, and there's exit 0, so I put the command between the fi and exit 0

[1:47] <Gators> ugh, I can't even get this thing to disconnect from my wifi to test if something else works better on wired.
[1:48] <Gators> linux sucks so bad
[1:48] <Gators> I can't do that
[1:49] <Gators> ctrl c and ctrl v don't work
[1:49] <jwash> ifdown wlan0 or sometihng like that

[1:49] <Gators> does anyone ever use the gui?

[1:50] <Gators> I've got nothing to click ot disable wifi networks, I've got no copy/paste......uh.....I guess I should start with, what can I do with linux?
[1:50] <jwash> do you have a terminal?
[1:51] <jwash> linux isn't as friendly as windoze
[1:51] <jwash> but its free
[1:51] <Chryodem> Cntrl+alt+t
[1:51] <Chryodem> that brings up terminal, lets start there
[1:52] <jwash> hehe, ctrl+alt+t doesn't do it for me on ubuntu 14
[1:52] <jwash> nm, my keyboard sucks
[1:53] <Gators> the middle is coming on, I'll have to deal with this later
[1:53] <Gators> hey, thanks guys, especially after what I dick I was.
[1:53] <Gators> catch you all later
[1:53] <Berg> goodness tv over pi?
[1:53] <Gators> tv is relaxing, pi is frustrating

[1:53] <Berg> how unnatural

[1:57] <Chryodem> I mostly use mine to host a MUD
[1:57] <Chryodem> works surprisingly well.
[1:57] <Chryodem> I am working on building an in dash system with my second one though. third one already ordered, no plans for it though. Any suggestions?
[1:58] <Berg> what mud i like muds?
[1:58] <algee> Anyone know where I can find a good kernel.img? mine is failing to load and I want to recover some data off the SD before I think of reformatting
[1:58] <Chryodem> I am customizing a GW2k6
[1:58] <Berg> no idea what that is
[1:58] <Berg> what code base?
[1:59] <Chryodem> God Wars 2k6
[1:59] <Chryodem> Diku/Merc/God Wars->God Wars 2k6
[1:59] <Berg> ha ok
[1:59] <Chryodem> �algee�: do you have a MicroSD card reader for your computer?
[1:59] * monoxane (~monoxane@unaffiliated/monoxane) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:59] <algee> yea
[2:00] <Chryodem> and windows/linux won't recognize it?
[2:00] <algee> It opens the boot partion
[2:00] <algee> the filesystem isn't there
[2:00] <Chryodem> ahhhh.... using windows or linux?
[2:00] <algee> windows
[2:00] * Vile` (Vile@unaffiliated/vile/x-1886500) has joined #raspberrypi
[2:00] <Chryodem> okay, right click my computer go to manage
[2:01] <Chryodem> go down to disk management
[2:01] <Chryodem> look for the SDCard, windows may see the partition but not assigning it a letter
[2:01] * monoxane (~monoxane@unaffiliated/monoxane) Quit (Client Quit)
[2:02] <algee> I see the partion but everything is greyed out
[2:02] * jkridner (~jkridner@pdpc/supporter/active/jkridner) has joined #raspberrypi
[2:02] <algee> ...except delete volume
[2:02] <Chryodem> don't do that
[2:02] * monoxane (~monoxane@unaffiliated/monoxane) has joined #raspberrypi
[2:03] <algee> Can I copy a good kernel.img and get it booted?
[2:03] <algee> bad question.. can I copy any rasbian kernel.img and have it boot
[2:03] <Chryodem> possible, but tricky, you would need to have the same version
[2:04] <algee> hrm, I can try dropping the jessie image onto another SD and copying that one over
[2:04] <chithead> you need to put the matching kernel modules into /lib/modules/`uname -r`
[2:05] <algee> well, i'm getting the rainbow screen when I try and boot it
[2:05] <algee> according to this: http://elinux.org/R-Pi_Troubleshooting#Coloured_splash_screen, its because of the kernel.img
[2:06] <Berg> use a linux machine and you shopuld see the file system? maybe plug a card reader into your usb on pi?
[2:06] <Berg> create a new image on a seperate sdcard
[2:07] <Chryodem> that was going to be my suggestion, just get an ubuntu DVD and boot to it
[2:07] <Berg> that will work too a live cd of ubuntu
[2:07] <theseb> dumb question but i don't get how pi can be sooo good and yet sooo cheap......why don't more and more people use cheap sub-$50 computers for all their needs then?
[2:08] * LADataJunkie (~LADataJun@cpe-23-241-60-255.socal.res.rr.com) Quit (Quit: My Mac has gone to sleep. ZZZzzz…)
[2:08] <Chryodem> because they don't really do games very well
[2:08] <Berg> cause its a little slow todays world wants instant gratification
[2:08] <Chryodem> and people are scared of linux
[2:08] <Roonix> most people already have a pc
[2:09] <Berg> lots of answers all right
[2:09] <Roonix> at least the people that tend to buy/ even know about pis
[2:09] <theseb> Chryodem: well for just surfing the web pi allows everyone to do that for about $30....not too shabby
[2:09] <Berg> I have my granson use his pi as a desktop PC he loves it
[2:10] <Chryodem> correct, but most people that would ever need a new PC they don't want to just surf the web. In a business environment the PI is the perfect solution
[2:10] <theseb> awesome
[2:10] <Chryodem> as long as you don't need windows specific programs
[2:10] <Berg> and he bought his own pi
[2:10] <Berg> saved up pocket money
[2:10] <Chryodem> My son is going to have a Pi as soon as he gets old enough. Hes only 2.
[2:11] <Berg> make him save up by working for a brick layer on weekends
[2:11] <Berg> :)
[2:11] <Chryodem> lol!!! Nope, his payment will be learning Python. Test every week.
[2:11] <Chryodem> or whatever easy programming language is out at the time.
[2:12] <Berg> yeah that works my granson has a python book and he practrices code from it
[2:12] <Chryodem> python is amazing, I wish my 8 year old didn't have the attention span of a gnat
[2:12] <Berg> my granson is 9 he has learn patience frompython
[2:13] <Berg> and he has learn not to spit the dummy when its broken
[2:13] <theseb> Chryodem: well for Windows apps you can use Amazon AWS or VNC into a Windows box

[2:14] <Berg> I dont know how school teachers have the mental stamina to teach kids
[2:14] <Chryodem> (theseb): That's an option, but if your business only really needs database/word processing type stuff, nothing graphical you could get everything in a 300 person office setting up and running for under $5000, which is better than a couple hundred thousand
[2:15] * Hix (~hix@97e05757.skybroadband.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[2:15] <Chryodem> I am actually about to sit down and start working on some ubuntu apps for ubuntu touch soon, i will be relearning a lot of stuff, I might be hard to teach at my age
[2:16] <theseb> Chryodem: i don't know what your database/word processing solution would be for $5000 but if you gave all 300 folks a pi they could use Google Docs in their browser!
[2:17] <Berg> you never stop learning it might take longer at historicaly aged humans but you can learn

[2:45] <oq> the uk keyboard layout isn't that foreign, the biggest issue you'd probably get is a " and @ being switched

[2:46] <theshagg> I get no english characters when I type any letters
[2:46] <Chryodem> type into a command line to configure a keyboard...........
[2:46] <plugwash> uk vs us moves some symbols arround but all the letters should be in the same place, so whatever is going on for you it doesn't sound like a UK vs US issue

[3:15] <CoJaBo> I deleted root once.
[3:15] <CoJaBo> I would not recommend this
[3:16] <wbill> this is pi not root
[3:16] <wbill> per se
[3:16] <wbill> i did make antoher with eact group perms
[3:17] <wbill> i was doing it so the pi wil be more secure
[3:17] * swift110-phone (~swift110-@unaffiliated/swift110) has joined #raspberrypi

[3:17] <Chryodem> lol
[3:18] <CoJaBo> Just make sure to chown any files owned by the pi user, and move them out of pi's home dir. Otherwise, no non-root user will be able to touch them
[3:18] <wbill> del pi wont corrupt the filesystem or anything

[3:21] <wbill> how do i chown all the files is there a one liner i can use for that anyone?
[3:21] <CoJaBo> wbill: If there are still files owned by pi when pi is deleted, they will have a numeric user owner, which can make them inaccessible. But you can always fix that (as root) after the fact.
[3:21] * nils__2 (~nils_2@unaffiliated/nils-2/x-2480262) has joined #raspberrypi

[3:22] <CoJaBo> wbill: A concern there is that if that user number gets reused, your pi files have a new, random owner, which is why I like to do it at user delete time. But that's not likely to happen unless you're creating/deleting accounts *often*.
[3:22] <Chryodem> that makes you owner of everything
[3:22] <wbill> or you mean my new user with pi abilimtes
[3:22] <CoJaBo> And yes, there is a root user; there is always a root user.
[3:22] * Tenkawa (~arakeen@unaffiliated/tenkawa) Quit (Client Quit)
[3:22] <CoJaBo> On most systems, the root user is disabled tho, as sudo is much better
[3:22] <wbill> ok so whats the passwd by default for root then
[3:23] <theshagg> wee, finally got my desktop to ifup the spare ethernet card and present a dhcp server to the pi, ssh is now working
[3:23] <wbill> im doing this from an image
[3:23] <Chryodem> awesome shagg!
[3:23] <CoJaBo> Disabled, meaning there is no password; the account can be su/sudo'd to, but not logged into directly.
[3:23] <theshagg> now.... keyboard setup
[3:23] <stiv> would it not be easier just to change the password for the pi user?
[3:23] <CoJaBo> (If you *can* login to root, I strongly recommend disabling it)
[3:23] <stiv> (if security is the concern)
[3:24] <CoJaBo> Also, look into key auth; much easier and more secure than passwords (but does require a bit of setup)
[3:24] <wbill> i did change the passwd for pi but it still is logged in how do i end that then so it wont autolog in
[3:24] <ozzzy> whereas I much prefer to use root and not sudo
[3:24] <CoJaBo> ozzzy: If you need to be root, you can always sudo -i
[3:24] <Chryodem> wbill are you trying to disable autologin? you don't need to delete the user for that
[3:24] <ozzzy> or just not have sudoers
[3:24] <Chryodem> just go into settings where you can change your password and turn off autologin
[3:25] <Roonix> wbill, you can change that with sudo raspi-config
[3:25] <wbill> no i dont want pi logged in
[3:26] <HerculeP> wbill: IIRC there is an option in raspi-config to disable pi login
[3:26] <theshagg> ok everyone, I changed keyboard to "us" and now every key character that shows up on the main terminal is prefaced with "^["
[3:27] <theshagg> this is the direct terminal, not ssh
[3:27] <plugwash> silly question but have you tried rebooting?

[5:35] <Berg> well oil i know floats on water
[5:35] <Berg> other oil is not true oil
[5:39] <hypermist> which way does the fan go logo thingie up or facing down and do i need to put on heatsinks onto the pi3 Crom ?

[8:32] <Lartza> Japa, Pi3 requires so much power even a USB3 port isn't really enough to power it anymore
[8:32] <calamari> that reminds me.. I wanted to look up the max a icro usb could handle
[8:32] <coremodule> Rukus, Lartza, Does it really eat that much power?
[8:33] <Rukus> i dont know for sure, but there has to be a reason we are told to use 2amp wall warts

[8:33] <Rukus> oh, i have 2 amp on my pi
[8:34] <Rukus> pi 3
[8:34] <Lartza> Yeah that should work thought, if it can actually output that
[8:34] <Rukus> i shoulda kept my 2.5, i sold it with my pi for some stupid reason
[8:34] <Lartza> It's just 2.5A is the "official" recommendation :P
[8:34] * Berg (~chatzilla@pa49-182-132-76.pa.nsw.optusnet.com.au) Quit (Ping timeout: 260 seconds)
[8:34] <Lartza> coremodule, USB3 is only 900mA and USB2 is 500mA so :P
[8:34] <mlelstv> the pi itself doesn't need 2.5A or 2A. That's mostly for whatever you connect to it that also needs power.
[8:35] <Rukus> meh all mine does is share files from a powered usb drive and act as a media centre
[8:35] <Lartza> Powered hubs might be specced well enough to accept bigger current draws but any TV or PC port won't be
[8:35] <calamari> hehe, according to one apple-apologist site, "The micro USB pins are very small, and the power-carrying connectors, pins 1 and 5, are rated to carry 1.8 amps at 5 volts DC."
[8:35] <coremodule> Lartza, Gotcha. I didn't know the Pi3 would eat close to 12 watts. You'd think it'd need a heatsink to dissipate that.
[8:35] <Rukus> i wasnt sure
[8:36] <Lartza> coremodule, Part of that goes to the USB though, not sure if it has to be dissipated on the board in that case
[8:36] <Japa> Oh, nice. The wall wart that's coming with my pi has 3.1 amps, and 2 usb ports.
[8:36] <Japa> Which means I can use it to replace the cell charger too.
[8:37] * toomin (~HomoSapie@unaffiliated/toomin) has joined #raspberrypi
[8:37] <Rukus> btw, never connect anything that doesnt communicate with your usb ports, to your pc or tv. otherwise the device will try to draw as much current as possible which may fry your usb port
[8:37] <mlelstv> http://raspberrypi.stackexchange.com/questions/43285/raspberry-pi-3-vs-pi-2-power-consumption-and-heat-dissipation
[8:37] <Rukus> i dont expect the pi to know if a port is 500ma or 900ma.
[8:37] <Rukus> it will just draw what is requires
[8:38] <Rukus> its not like the ports are actually limited
[8:38] <mlelstv> well, the ports are limited :)
[8:38] <Rukus> i beg to differ
[8:38] <Lartza> The ports aren't usually set to deliver power without communication
[8:38] <Rukus> they are only limited because the device connected says "I am a usb 2.0 device, i only get 500ma"
[8:38] <Rukus> whereas the pi, doesnt communicate like that afaik
[8:38] <Lartza> Yes and if it doesn't say that, it doesn't get power
[8:39] <Rukus> its meant to be connected to wall power
[8:39] <Lartza> That's how computer USB ports work
[8:39] <Rukus> lartza, not always tru
[8:39] <mlelstv> for rpi1 b+ and rpi2 the total current for all USB ports is limited to 600mA but may be configured to allow 1.2A
[8:39] <Rukus> this reason is why fast charging works on android phones with usb ports
[8:39] <mlelstv> there is a setting in config.txt
[8:40] <Rukus> you can tell an android phone to ignore the communication and you can charge as quickly as the port will allow, which of often ata higher amperage than the port is rated for
[8:40] <Rukus> is*
[8:41] <Rukus> so, i dont imagine the pi does any communication as it expects a wall charger
[8:41] <Lartza> Also, it's not possible to draw more current than it is possible
[8:41] <mlelstv> the micro usb port doesn't even have data lines
[8:41] <Rukus> i mean usb ports on a pc

[8:41] <Rukus> usb ports on a pc, will actaully put out more current than they are rated for
[8:41] <mlelstv> so it cannot communicate with the power supply
[8:41] <Rukus> thats all i am saying
[8:42] <Rukus> but they dont, because hte device connected tells them not to
[8:42] * nimoot (~HomoSapie@unaffiliated/toomin) has joined #raspberrypi
[8:42] <Lartza> So even if Pi did no communication, and tried to draw 420A from the USB port, it couldn't
[8:42] <Rukus> or at least tells the ports what it is
[8:42] <Rukus> i'm not sure you understand but thats ok

[8:43] <Lartza> Sure there are scenarios where it can break the USB ports and I understand
[8:43] <mlelstv> the PC USB ports usually have such logic, Hubs often don't.
[8:43] <Lartza> But I don't really see that happening
[8:43] <Rukus> <mlelstv> so it cannot communicate with the power supply
[8:43] <Rukus> thats my exact point
[8:43] * stivs (~steve@blender/coder/stivs) Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[8:44] <Lartza> mlelstv, Well hubs usually can deliver more power though, thus why people are able to use hubs for the pi's

[9:56] <Xark> duriangray: NIC = network interface "card"

[10:06] <[Saint]> Xark: thank you for quoting "card".
[10:06] <[Saint]> NIC is kinda ambiguous now.
[10:06] <Xark> Yeah. :)
[10:07] <[Saint]> Software defined networks can make a lot of situations messy. And that's just one place I can think of where the acronym falls over.
[10:08] <Xark> Maybe it can get "retro-nymed" to Network Interface Channel or something. :)
[10:08] <[Saint]> I believe exactly that has been proposed.
[10:08] <[Saint]> People just know what it means, I guess.
[10:09] <[Saint]> Like when people use URL all the time and really mean URI, and how URI and URL get used weirdly interchangeably.
[10:10] <[Saint]> kinda stopped being an acronym and "URL" became very ambiguous.
[10:11] <[Saint]> - this is fresh in my mind from all the WHATWG shenanigans
[10:11] <Xark> Heh, yeah, big mess. I was just reading https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=11673058
[10:12] <[Saint]> bagder/Daniel of cURL/Mozilla fame has been very vocal about this recently.
[10:12] <[Saint]> And I find it hilarious.
[10:13] <[Saint]> The news agencies crosslinking seem to have hugged his poor blog to death.
[10:13] <Xark> Yeah, that is his article. It was funny. :)
[10:13] <Xark> He linked to some "weak" logic.

[10:14] <[Saint]> "lets use the behavior of a subset of browsers to define a standard"
[10:14] <Xark> Yeah. Seems a horrible way to make a standard.
[10:14] * jmbarbier (~jmbarbier@rominet.solidev.net) Quit (Quit: My Mac has gone to sleep. ZZZzzz…)
[10:14] <[Saint]> It's the exact opposite way it should be done.
[10:14] <duriangray> Xark: so the raspberry pi only has 1 nic?
[10:14] <Xark> But, the web is layers and layers of that already. :)
[10:15] <[Saint]> Software gets written around standards.
[10:15] <[Saint]> Not vice versa.
[10:15] <Xark> duriangray: Well, depends.
[10:15] <duriangray> Xark: on my server, i can attach to eth0, eth1, eth2 etc is each eth a nic?
[10:15] <Xark> duriangray: E.g., Raspberry Pi 3 has WiFi NIC and Ethernet.
[10:15] <Xark> duriangray: You can add a bunch of ethernet or wifi USB to any Raspberry Pi etc.
[10:16] <duriangray> my main objective is to use the raspberry pi as a transparent proxy
[10:16] <Xark> However, one wired ethernet port. However like with that article I linked, you can make it "as if" you had several NICs on the same wire with different IPs (doesn't help speed, of course).
[10:17] <duriangray> like remote login into it. and use an IP attached to it via mobile hotspot
[10:17] <Xark> duriangray: Like http://www.danscourses.com/Linux-Fundamentals/turn-a-raspberry-pi-into-a-web-filter-proxy-with-squidguard.html

[10:18] <[Saint]> The basic sum of it all is the WHATWG seems to have forgotten that the concept of URL has existed quite fine outside of browsers for years.
[10:18] <[Saint]> And that tools that don't take user input don't need all this crazy parsing logic, because well coded preforms should be bullet proof.

[10:19] <Xark> [Saint]: Right. That is the crux. It makes sense to do "crazy" crap to salvage human input, but not in the spec for what a URL (etc.) shoudl be.
[10:19] <Xark> should*
[10:21] <[Saint]> WHo knew browsers deciding to kludge search and destination bars together would make such a far reaching impact.

[10:21] <duriangray> Xark: im not sure that is gonna be the solution... what I am trying to do is attach 2 ips to a raspberry pi. then i will use the raspberry pi as a proxy server from the internet to access the other IP

[11:02] <Lonefish> Pi's are to encourage "work" and "trying" stuff
[11:02] <hypermist> i know enough to use linux properly mfa298 so raspbian isnt to much of a hassle. i use debian daily on vps's
[11:02] <hypermist> xD
[11:02] <toomanyerrors> i havent even booted my pi up yet

[11:03] <toomanyerrors> but then i wont be able to play psp games
[11:03] <Lonefish> that's what I would do tho
[11:03] * CoJaBo (~aztec@unaffiliated/cojabo) has joined #raspberrypi
[11:03] <Lonefish> you could install retropie and play games.
[11:03] <toomanyerrors> and if i bought the psp i would miss out on the pi
[11:04] <mfa298> hypermist: well raspbian is based on debian so is probably close to what you know, Arch and Ubuntu made seem to be gaining in popularity, or you could go out and use somethign totally different like RiscOS
[11:04] <Lonefish> tthat's a choice you have to make toomanyerrors

[11:05] <toomanyerrors> not saying
[11:05] <toomanyerrors> that
[11:05] <toomanyerrors> im saying help me decide
[11:05] <hypermist> raspbian it is i suppoooose mfa298 ;D
[11:05] <Lonefish> Also, the fact that you say "87$" and not 90 or 100 makes me think that you worked/saved hard for that money..
[11:06] <Lonefish> So it's really not up to me to decide..
[11:06] <toomanyerrors> well i made a deal with my dad
[11:06] * computer2000 (~computer2@dhcp-8-8.rca.ac.uk) has joined #raspberrypi

[11:07] <toomanyerrors> if i got 85% or above in my final exams, i would get a spending budget of 5500 inr
[11:07] <toomanyerrors> and i got 86.6%
[11:07] <Lonefish> congratz
[11:07] <hypermist> this is the time for chinese sdcard to show its glory
[11:08] <Lonefish> do you have to spend it or can you save it?

[11:08] <toomanyerrors> i dont want to save it
[11:08] <mfa298> if you've already got a zero (or 3) I'd do some experimentation with them and see what you can do and invest the money until you know what you want to do.

[11:12] <Japa> In retrospect, I probably should have ordered an SDcard reader alongside my pi
[11:12] <Lonefish> That can be useful, yes :p
[11:13] <Lonefish> No laptop with an SD-card reader?

[11:17] <toomanyerrors> cant buy both
[11:17] <Lonefish> if you invest in stock and profit, yes you can. We gave you a few possible scenario's. It's up to you to choose.
[11:18] <Lonefish> But if you didn't even try the zero, I'd back off buying a pi3. It's much cheaper to just fire up the zero
[11:18] <toomanyerrors> i think i'll beg my mom for the zero stuff
[11:18] <toomanyerrors> and ask my dad for the psp
[11:19] <hypermist> what 3 pi's toomanyerrors
[11:19] <hypermist> i also have 1xpi1 and a pi2 and 3pi0's and 1xpi3

[11:21] <Lonefish> you can try

[11:22] <Lonefish> I don't know your parents, how am I supposed to know if it'll work?
[11:22] <Japa> The card is coming with noobs preinstalled. I'd just need it if I want to format and try something else.
[11:23] <toomanyerrors> alright ty all

[11:23] <Lonefish> you can reinstall noobs by copying it to your sd card tho, (the webinstall thingie)

[11:24] <Lonefish> you can, but you don't need to (at least not for noobs)

[12:17] <BurtyB> Lonefish, err no it doesn't depend on anything you can't provide unlimited bandwidth on a port with a fixed capacity...
[12:17] <Lonefish> I'm talking about max download volume.
[12:17] <BurtyB> Lonefish, they're related...
[12:18] <Lonefish> Yes they are, I'll give you that. But most (well, at least in belgium) providers will cap your download volume

[15:29] <oq> doom has a concert hall?
[15:29] <Chillum> in my mind it does
[15:30] <Chryodem> you may never see it in the game but they have to entertain somehow
[15:30] <Chillum> like toilets on star trek
[15:33] <IT_Sean> Actually, there is exactly ONE ST:TNG episode in which a restroom appears.
[15:33] <IT_Sean> I forget which one, though
[15:33] <Bilby> I thought there were a few that showed sinks or whatever in crew quarters
[15:33] * knob (~knob@mobile-166-172-184-203.mycingular.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[15:33] <Chryodem> a lot of them show sinks
[15:33] <Bilby> post-nightmare face-splashing scenes, etc
[15:33] <Chryodem> but very few (apparently only one) that shows a toilet
[15:34] <Bilby> granted, there's not a lot that happens on a toilet that's a) interesting and b) broadcast-friendly
[15:34] <Chryodem> maybe gene rodenberry couldn't think of what a future toilet would look like
[15:34] <IT_Sean> There is one in which you see a turlet.
[15:35] <Bilby> Oh goodness internet. Sometimes I don't know about you. http://memory-alpha.wikia.com/wiki/Toilet
[15:35] <Bilby> hah, most references are in DS9, related to Ferengi of all people
[15:38] <oq> tng's enterprise even had stairs, but you never saw them
[15:39] <Chillum> there were stairs in the nacelle rooms
[15:40] <Chillum> you saw them
[15:40] <IT_Sean> those don't count. YOu only saw that room in one episode... or perhaps two.
[15:40] <Chillum> in that silly episode about the ghost
[15:40] <Chillum> of course they count
[15:40] <Chillum> just because ou don't see a place often does not mean it doesn't exist
[15:40] <IT_Sean> And ONE of those episdoes was an annoying "Troi is being her usual irritating self" episode.
[15:41] <Chillum> she is such a baby sometimes
[15:41] <Chillum> "Wah, I can't read others thoughts, now I am like the rest of you, life is horrible"
[15:42] <Chillum> she was insulting everyone around her while feeling sorry for herself
[15:42] <IT_Sean> I do kind of want to kick her in the teeth, i'll be honest.
[15:42] <Chillum> part of the shows charm is that some of the characters are losers
[15:42] <oq> Chillum: well for that race their telepathy was their main sense, like how eyesight/sound is our main, and for dogs its scent
[15:42] <Chillum> Riker is a real prick, but he adds so much to the show
[15:42] <oq> it would be like going blind
[15:42] <IT_Sean> He's a likable prick, though
[15:42] <Chillum> oq: only some of her race have telethapy
[15:42] <Chillum> it is a rare gift to have it to her level
[15:42] <Chillum> high society
[15:43] <IT_Sean> I mean, yeah... he is a prick... but, he's a prick it would be fun to go drinking with.
[15:43] <Chillum> he would start a fight
[15:43] <IT_Sean> whereas Troi needs to be shot out a photon torpedo tube.
[15:43] <IT_Sean> prefferably into a nearby star.
[15:43] <Chillum> can't believe they let her drive the ship that time
[15:43] <Bilby> So many parts of that ship we only saw for a handful of episodes
[15:43] <Bilby> #battlebridge

[16:43] <computer2000> I need to feed several Servos that draw up to 3 Amp in total but would like to use same PSU as for Po
[16:43] <computer2000> Bilby: but is it possible?
[16:44] * Jimbocuzzi (~chatzilla@cpe-76-92-132-19.kc.res.rr.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[16:44] <Bilby> just put multiple taps on the PSU positive and make sure all of the grounds are common
[16:44] <TheLostAdmin> In a minor modification of Bilby's initial statement, yes but you shouldn't pass the current through the Pi.
[16:44] <Bilby> the Pi 3 can provide more current than the other two (on the USB Bus) but the GPIO is still very current limited

[16:45] <computer2000> Bilby: how much can it forward?
[16:46] <Drzacek> computer2000, those motors could draw a lot more than 3A when they start
[16:46] <GRiZL0C> hello everyone i have an external drive connected to my pi but after a while the drive goes into sleep mode is this a normal thing?
[16:46] <computer2000> Drzacek: I've measured them
[16:46] <Habbie> GRiZL0C, does it come back out of sleep mode when you access it?
[16:47] <GRiZL0C> yes
[16:47] <Chunkyz> [Saint_], I took your advice.
[16:47] <TheSin> okay so after a ton of readong on GPIO46, I can see it chagne with hdmi plug and unplug on the value, but there is never an interrupt, so I can't use poll() to monitor the change, anyone have any other ideas for an hdmi hotplug daemon?
[16:47] <Drzacek> computer2000, you need a driver. It takes current direclty from PSU, and RPi gives only control signals
[16:47] <Bilby> https://www.raspberrypi.org/help/faqs/#power about 1.2A at most
[16:47] <Bilby> computer2000: that link has info for all the Pis power supply and requirements

[16:50] <daveake> computer2000 If you check the schematic here - https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentation/hardware/raspberrypi/schematics/RPI-3B-V1_2-SCHEMATIC-REDUCED.pdf - you'll see a thermal fuse between power in at the micro usb socket and the gpio 5V pin. If you then check the datasheet for that part http://www.bourns.com/docs/Product-Datasheets/mfmsmf.pdf you'll see
[16:50] <daveake> it's rated for a max continuous load of 2.5A
[16:50] <daveake> and that it will trip at 5A @ 25deg C
[16:50] <Bilby> daveake with the deep knowledge! :P
[16:50] <daveake> I'd keep servos (of any rating) well away from the Pi 5V line anyway
[16:51] <daveake> Nah, just google skillz :p
[16:51] <computer2000> daveake: ok so feed servos current another line
[16:51] <Bilby> I can't imagine it's a great idea, yeah
[16:51] <Bilby> you have to go through mosfets or a controller for the data lines anyhow

[16:52] <computer2000> daveake: I just thought there might be a direct forward circuit or so which I could use
[16:53] <daveake> It's not as direct as you'd want it to be. As the motor draws more ciurrent it will increase the voltage drop across that thermal fuse and the power lead to the Pi; you don't want to be doing that

[16:54] <IT_Sean> It is expensive as all hell to live there, and it's not really that nice.
[16:54] <Armand> We're about 3500 miles away from it right now. lol
[16:54] <daveake> I've got some fairly beefy (16N-cm) servos here. They pull over an amp just to move with no load. They're getting their own independent PSU
[16:54] <daveake> sorry 16kg-cm
[16:55] <Armand> IT_Sean: Expensive compared to UK living ?
[16:55] <IT_Sean> I dunnah about that, but, it's one of the more expensive states in the US as far as cost of living.

[18:28] <stevie86> Ok, i found the solution to this one... http://stackoverflow.com/questions/13024828/if-grep-finds-what-it-is-looking-fore-do-x-else-y
[18:28] <mfa298> presumably they're on different subnets, in which case the upstream router would need to know about the subnet on wlan1
[18:28] <mfa298> and you just need to enable routing in the kernel
[18:28] <stevie86> check the exit code and then continue or break
[18:28] <theseb> daey: is default password ubuntu? i tried it and no go

[18:28] <styler2go> oh
[18:28] <styler2go> you asked a different question lol, but yes
[18:28] <theseb> daey: so i need to delete the account else RP3 by default is a security risk!
[18:29] <theseb> daey: thanks btw
[18:29] <styler2go> just passwd
[18:29] <theseb> styler2go: ?
[18:29] <daey> theseb: well. its less secure than an unknown account name. but i woudlnt call it a gigantic security risk if you pick a proper pw
[18:30] <mfa298> styler2go: it looks like you need to prod /proc/sys/net/ipv6/conf/all/forwarding to enable forwarding
[18:30] * doomlord_ (~textual@host81-153-147-173.range81-153.btcentralplus.com) Quit (Quit: My MacBook Pro has gone to sleep. ZZZzzz…)
[18:30] <styler2go> how can i enable that? :o
[18:31] <mfa298> styler2go: you may also need to setup something on the Pi to advertise prefixes. ndp possibly
[18:31] <mfa298> 'echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv6/conf/all/forwarding' as root will enable it for that session
[18:31] <theseb> daey: ah yes..just change passwd...thanks......you've been a big help
[18:32] <mfa298> but if you're upstream router doesn't know how to get to your wlan1 subnet you'll have issues getting packets back (there's not really nat in IPv6)

[18:35] <shauno> we spend more on support contracts than computers. the computer's just a widget. the pi has no support contracts
[18:35] <mfa298> it's possible to setup a IPv6 router, but you need some control over the upstream (in my case I've got a tunnel and route IPv6 on various devices - although no linux as it wasn't that good at IPv6 when I set stuff up)
[18:35] <theseb> shauno: i'm not a sysadmin but if you just surf web then does the eliminate support needs?

[18:43] <mfa298> which included installing windows and a range of software - done with a handful of keypresses, then leave to do all the work
[18:44] <mfa298> doing that for a Pi is tedious. I've imaged a number of SD cards in a go for Pi's and it's a pain.
[18:46] <theseb> mfa298: when i used to build linux supercomputers we used custom distros that were set to reinstall for every reboot
[18:46] <theseb> mfa298: i imagine best would be to put some image on the pi's so that you just had to reboot all 1000 to reinstall your new image?
[18:47] <theseb> mfa298: of course you'd need a fat server to handle the traffic unless you staggered the reboots
[18:47] <methuzla> SaltySolomon, nc -l 1234
[18:48] <mfa298> theseb: currently the pi's can only boot from SD, so updating/replacing that image is a case of put the SD card in sometihng else, and write the image, that ends up being a lot of effort.
[18:49] <mfa298> this is why big busineses are unlikely to replace workstations with lots of Pis, which was your original question.
[18:50] <daey> mfa298: "nobody ever got fired for buying IBM" :P
[18:51] <mfa298> In the life of IT you're probably going to spend as much on the support as on the hardware. because when you need that support you tend to really need it.

[19:27] <Celerity> well, I think it was around an inch thick

[19:42] <IT_Sean> That would be.... slow.
[19:42] <martin290> really?
[19:42] <IT_Sean> Keep in mind USB and network share the same bus, so... using both at the same time for large transfers would slow things down a bit.
[19:42] <coremodule> niston, That's really cool. I made something like that out of a Pi B model a couple years back: http://imgur.com/fkFtdy1

[20:30] <gordonDrogon> wiringPi can work faster, but because it's not clocked via one of the internal hardware clocks, there is much jitter due to Linux, and the other hardware stuff. e.g. memory refresh
[20:31] <gordonDrogon> so to gurantee a 1Mhz sampling rate with wiringPi is almost impossible.
[20:31] <gordonDrogon> it can sample faster, but you have very little control over the speed.
[20:32] <repozitor> input data goes from ADC, 16bit resolution, with one bit of interrupt.
[20:32] <repozitor> i need to capture them.

[20:32] <repozitor> sample rate is 1MsPs

[20:52] <repozitor> i have ADC with 1MsPs, 16bit Resolution.
[20:52] <repozitor> when ADC conversion finish, an interrupt will occur on ADC interrupt line.
[20:52] <repozitor> when an interrupt occur, i need to store 16bit data on memory, for future process.
[20:53] <niston> ok so
[20:53] <niston> you need to hookup the ADC interrupt line to some GPIO port on the Pi
[20:53] <repozitor> yeah, exactly
[20:53] <niston> I think that you could use wiring pi to call a routine by whenever the pin in question changes state
[20:54] <niston> you could then check if the line is active and have it read from the ADC if it is.
[20:54] <repozitor> but gordonDrogon(wiringPi owner) told me it not as fast as 1MHz.
[20:54] <niston> ah
[20:55] <repozitor> any other solution?
[20:55] <niston> use an MCU infront of the pi

[23:14] <gordonDrogon> ok - but just because it can sample that fast, do you need to read it that fast?

[23:14] <gordonDrogon> what is it that you're sampling?
[23:14] <repozitor> also ADC interupt line, help to capture true value of ADC.
[23:14] <repozitor> gordonDrogon, yeah i need. also in future i need 4MHz sampling!
[23:14] <gordonDrogon> ok
[23:14] <gordonDrogon> maybe the Pi isn't the right tool for the job...
[23:15] <repozitor> gordonDrogon, i have done it with C and direct register access.
[23:15] <repozitor> now i dunno how to check it's speed!
[23:15] <gordonDrogon> that's going to be the issue - speed is one thing, but latency/jitter is another.
[23:16] <repozitor> gordonDrogon, yeah you are right.
[23:16] <gordonDrogon> the linux kernel can stop your code running at any point...
[23:16] <repozitor> maybe i need to change ubuntu scheduling to be sure that process will be always on core0
[23:17] <gordonDrogon> other things that might get in the way is stuff like the dram memory refresh.
[23:17] <repozitor> gordonDrogon, is there exist any mechanism to avoid kernel stopping in pigpio or wiringpi?
[23:17] <mfa298> it sounds like the sort of thing whrere you might want to look at a RTOS rather than a normal linux distro.
[23:18] <gordonDrogon> as far as I'm aware, pigpio uses the PWM timers and DMA engines to accomplish its tasks - so when you get it to do something it should be imdependant of the CPU.
[23:18] <gordonDrogon> wiringPi is ordinary user-land code, so subject to the whims of the kernel, etc.
[23:19] <repozitor> gordonDrogon, i don't think so, pigpio also have a daemon, so kernel can stop it.
[23:20] <gordonDrogon> I think the daemon is just to enable communication between your code and the underlying code - if you exit a program without tidyung up the dma hardware then all sorts of bad stuff can happen. I think it tries to make sure that doesn't happen.
[23:22] <repozitor> http://paste.ubuntu.com/16382154/
[23:22] <gordonDrogon> yes - that's old - the original code posted.
[23:22] <repozitor> gordonDrogon, take a look on this link, and tell which one is better?
[23:22] <repozitor> this implementation or DMA implementation?
[23:23] <gordonDrogon> wiringPi is similar to that code.

[23:24] <repozitor> minimal*
[23:24] <gordonDrogon> the DMA style gpio access is different to the direct register access - each way has its good points and bad points.
[23:24] * knob (~knob@ has joined #raspberrypi
[23:24] <gordonDrogon> they accomplish similar things in different ways - it's up to you to choose which method you use.
[23:24] <repozitor> i don't like to use pigpio, because i need to write so simple and very fast and high performance. code.
[23:25] <repozitor> so can you tell me how to implement it with DMA?
[23:25] <gordonDrogon> the best way would be by studying the source code to pigpio ...
[23:25] <gordonDrogon> the published wiringPi doesn't use dma.
[23:25] <repozitor> ok, do you ever look at it?
[23:25] <gordonDrogon> pigpio? no.
[23:26] <repozitor> so any question will goes to null
[23:26] <repozitor> :d

[23:30] <repozitor> what is the meaning of this?
[23:30] <repozitor> Simplest example of copying memory from one region to another using DMA ("Direct Memory Access") in userland
[23:30] <repozitor> gordonDrogon, it is written at
[23:30] <repozitor> https://github.com/Wallacoloo/Raspberry-Pi-DMA-Example
[23:30] <gordonDrogon> you might want to get the Broadcom ARM peripherals guide when looking at that stuff.
[23:31] <repozitor> there is no datasheet for BCM2837
[23:31] <gordonDrogon> there is a document which give you information about most of the gpio including the dma engines.
[23:31] <gordonDrogon> it's on the raspberrypi.org website.
[23:34] <repozitor> gordonDrogon, your library have interrup option, is that option works for 1M interrupt per second?
[23:34] <gordonDrogon> no.
[23:35] <gordonDrogon> when I last benchmarked it, it maxed out at about 66K interrupts/sec.
[23:35] <repozitor> hhm, that not really interrupt feature!!!! :D
[23:35] * Bilby (~Bilby@ Quit (Quit: Bilby)
[23:36] <gordonDrogon> it's all done in userland. it's not a true interrupt in the low-level sense.
[23:36] <repozitor> yeah
[23:36] <gordonDrogon> if you want that, then you ought to write a Linux kernel module.
[23:36] <mfa298> repozitor: from some reading I did a while ago I think if you want interrupts in a similar way to a microcontroller you need to do it in the kernel
