[0:00] <GreeningGalaxy> well, they all either come from the UK or the PRC, right?
[0:00] <JakeSays> there isnt
[0:00] * Viper168 (~Viper@unaffiliated/viper168) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:00] <hmoney> they have distributors that then have resellers
[0:00] * dastaan (~dastaan@129.255.225.85) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:00] <cnnx> cool
[0:00] <cnnx> thanks for the info guys
[0:00] <hmoney> you're almost always buying from a reseller but really not much markup
[0:00] <cnnx> ill watch some youtubes
[0:00] <JakeSays> lol
[0:00] <cnnx> btw
[0:00] <cnnx> is it pretty fast?
[0:00] <cnnx> for 1.2ghz
[0:00] <cnnx> 4 cores?
[0:00] <GreeningGalaxy> I think they have some kind of mandated retail price point, because you never see variation among reputable resellers
[0:00] <hmoney> idk gflops or w/e but it is pretty quick
[0:01] <GreeningGalaxy> that's why the Zero has just been unavailable instead of having its price jacked up to meet demand
[0:01] <cnnx> the sbc i have now has
[0:01] <cnnx> 400MHz ARM9 CPU
[0:01] <hmoney> it can do 1080p playback well for video
[0:01] <cnnx> is it a lot faster than that?
[0:01] <cnnx> i have this now
[0:01] <cnnx> https://www.embeddedarm.com/products/TS-4200
[0:01] <cnnx> in my robot
[0:01] <JakeSays> cnnx: um, its a ton faster than that
[0:01] * swift110 (~swift110@unaffiliated/swift110) Quit (Ping timeout: 240 seconds)
[0:02] <cnnx> good stuff
[0:02] <hmoney> you should just buy one and play with it :P
[0:02] <cnnx> okay
[0:02] <GreeningGalaxy> my uni's robotics club just ordered ten Pi 3s to use as robot brains
[0:02] * nicolas17 (~nicolas@kde/nalvarez) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:02] <cnnx> it wont break the bank for an adult
[0:02] <nicolas17> hi
[0:02] <cnnx> what is it 30$?
[0:02] <GreeningGalaxy> 35 for the 3, usually
[0:02] <hmoney> it's around $50 when you include the extras you need
[0:02] <nicolas17> my raspi's activity LED blinks when there is access to the SD card
[0:02] <cnnx> ok
[0:02] <cnnx> better than buying a 3000$ mbp
[0:03] <hmoney> $35 for pi, $10 for microsd, then you need a micro usb cable and 5v 2.5a charger
[0:03] <nicolas17> I connected an external USB hard disk, can I make the LED blink when there is access to the disk too?
[0:03] <GreeningGalaxy> and a case, unless you always handle it with kid gloves and have a remarkably clean house
[0:03] <cnnx> arm is a different architecture than intel right
[0:03] <nicolas17> cnnx: yes
[0:03] <JakeSays> so in europe, a power cord has brown and blue wires. is the brown positive, or is the blue?
[0:03] <hmoney> ye
[0:03] <cnnx> the instruction codes are different (RISC) right?
[0:03] <GreeningGalaxy> indeed
[0:03] <cnnx> so the machine language is different in ASM?
[0:03] <hmoney> nicolas you mean the raspi led?
[0:03] <cnnx> interrupts etc?
[0:04] <hmoney> 2lowlevel4me
[0:04] <cnnx> ok
[0:04] <JakeSays> GreeningGalaxy: who are you indeed'ing to?
[0:04] <cnnx> i like C
[0:04] <nicolas17> JakeSays: there is no such thing as "positive wire" in alternate current :P
[0:04] <cnnx> asm is a bit hard
[0:04] <GreeningGalaxy> yes, the instruction set is different.
[0:04] <nicolas17> hmoney: yes
[0:04] <nicolas17> hmoney: I want the ACT LED to blink on access to /dev/sda
[0:04] <JakeSays> nicolas17: there is
[0:04] <cnnx> why didnt they put WIFI AC
[0:04] <cnnx> why just B/G/N?
[0:04] <hmoney> i could've sworn i read somewhere the raspi3 LED wasnt able to be programmed as easily as the rpi2 and below
[0:04] <GreeningGalaxy> because the board costs $35, cnnx
[0:04] * dastaan (~dastaan@129.255.225.85) Quit (Ping timeout: 258 seconds)
[0:04] <cnnx> do you guys recommend the case?
[0:04] <nicolas17> hmoney: that's good because I have a 1B
[0:05] <GreeningGalaxy> they can't just spare no expense and put in every little feature
[0:05] <JakeSays> cnnx: yeah i always get some sort of case
[0:05] <cnnx> whats the highest capacity sdcard i can put in it
[0:05] <cnnx> 128gb?
[0:05] <GreeningGalaxy> took them long enough to find a low-cost way of putting wifi on the board at all. be glad we got 802.11n and not just b/g
[0:05] <methuzla> cnnx: why do you want a pi? what would you do with it?
[0:05] <cnnx> hows the disk I/O speed compared to ssd?
[0:05] <hmoney> nicolas17: https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=31&t=12530
[0:06] <GreeningGalaxy> if you want that much space, get a small SD card and a USB hard drive. giant SD cards aren't worth the money.
[0:06] <hmoney> scroll down a bit, a guy gives a full explanation on how to modify the pi's leds
[0:06] <cnnx> does it have usb 3?
[0:06] <nicolas17> cnnx: no, only usb2
[0:06] <cnnx> so its too slow
[0:06] <nicolas17> hmoney: doh, I searched for 'led' in my /sys
[0:06] <cnnx> for I/O
[0:06] <nicolas17> instead of leds
[0:06] <JakeSays> nicolas17: well, they're considered 'live' and 'neutral', but pretty much the same thing
[0:06] <hmoney> cnnx: the ethernet port and 4 USB are all on the same bus which maxes out at like 40mb
[0:06] <GreeningGalaxy> look, you aren't going to get lightning-fast I/O from a Pi at all. MicroSDs are designed for fast bulk writes and not much else.
[0:07] <cnnx> ok
[0:07] <methuzla> cnnx: why do you want a pi? what would you do with it?
[0:07] <GreeningGalaxy> if you want it to go fast, you'll have to go minimal. I can get mine to boot in about 8 seconds with Void linux
[0:07] <hmoney> class 10 hdxc cards should have the highest I/O tho
[0:07] <cnnx> is there other sbc's that run linux with usb 3?
[0:08] <GreeningGalaxy> cnnx: sure, look at ODROID. they have a ~$75 board with USB 3.0 and a very hefty CPU.
[0:08] <hmoney> exact I/O writeup: https://www.jeffgeerling.com/blogs/jeff-geerling/raspberry-pi-microsd-card
[0:08] * ankr (~ankr@91.100.101.235.generic-hostname.arrownet.dk) Quit (Quit: My MacBook has gone to sleep. ZZZzzz…)
[0:08] <cnnx> GreeningGalaxy: okay
[0:09] <cnnx> GreeningGalaxy: its still sub 100$
[0:09] <cnnx> GreeningGalaxy: not bad right?
[0:09] <hmoney> doesnt the network PXE boot on the raspi boot in like 2 seconds?
[0:09] <nicolas17> hmoney: not sure if I can
[0:09] <hmoney> nic :(
[0:09] <nicolas17> I mean
[0:09] <nicolas17> I could set the trigger to 'none'
[0:09] <GreeningGalaxy> ODROIDs use faster eMMC modules for their main storage, and the XU4 has USB 3.0
[0:09] <hmoney> cant you just attach an led to a gpio pin and control that?
[0:09] <nicolas17> and write my own program to watch for disk I/O somehow :P
[0:10] <cnnx> GreeningGalaxy: it has a wider bus too?
[0:10] * Chocolophophora (~i@unaffiliated/humbag) Quit (Quit: oops)
[0:10] * damntourists (a2e4bae1@gateway/web/cgi-irc/kiwiirc.com/ip.162.228.186.225) Quit (Quit: http://www.kiwiirc.com/ - A hand crafted IRC client)
[0:10] <GreeningGalaxy> you mean more GPIOs? I don't think so, I think it's just 40 pins split between two headers
[0:10] <nicolas17> but I can't just change the trigger from its default "mmc0" to "sda"
[0:10] * blinkingprompt (~blinkingp@unaffiliated/blinkingprompt) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:10] <cnnx> GreeningGalaxy: no.. more BUS speed.. will i get the transfer speed of usb 3.0 for disk i/o on the usb stick?
[0:11] <hmoney> that's an older forum post, do newer forum posts say the same thing nicolas17?
[0:11] <nicolas17> hmoney: I looked myself
[0:11] <GreeningGalaxy> oh, I have no idea
[0:11] <nicolas17> pi@raspberrypi:/sys/class/leds/led0 $ cat trigger
[0:11] <nicolas17> none kbd-scrollock kbd-numlock kbd-capslock kbd-kanalock kbd-shiftlock kbd-altgrlock kbd-ctrllock kbd-altlock kbd-shiftllock kbd-shiftrlock kbd-ctrlllock kbd-ctrlrlock [mmc0] timer oneshot heartbeat backlight gpio cpu0 default-on input
[0:11] <nicolas17> none of those trigger options seem to really fit :P
[0:11] <cnnx> odroid has much less people in #odroid than #raspberrypi
[0:11] <cnnx> less known sbc?
[0:11] <nicolas17> well yeah, raspi is surely the most popular
[0:11] <hmoney> yeah the raspi community is really the only one of its size
[0:11] <methuzla> cnnx: thus my original comment
[0:11] <GreeningGalaxy> cnnx: yes, as I said, RPi has by far the biggest userbase.
[0:11] <cnnx> ok
[0:12] <cnnx> i'll have to think about it
[0:12] <hmoney> well if you decide not to get a pi, that's okay. just know we will hate you for it
[0:12] <hmoney> :P
[0:12] <cnnx> oh
[0:12] <cnnx> odroid looks crazy powerfull
[0:13] <cnnx> 8 core cpu 2ghz
[0:13] <hmoney> some of those other boards can do some decent 4k playback at ++hz
[0:13] <GreeningGalaxy> I think the ODROID XU4 is mainly designed as a wee budget server. Lots of cores, fast I/O and wired networking, and not much else.
[0:13] * Chocolungma (~i@unaffiliated/humbag) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:14] <cnnx> whats the rpi designed for
[0:14] <methuzla> learning
[0:14] <hmoney> idk i think that's really changed. the rpi foundation claims they're doing it for kids to learn to code, and i dont doubt that. but the majority of people are using them for tinkering projects
[0:15] <GreeningGalaxy> and those people are learning. :P
[0:15] <hmoney> retropie setups, gameboys, etc
[0:15] * SpeccyMan (~nick@94.197.121.124.threembb.co.uk) has left #raspberrypi
[0:15] <hmoney> ye true, but they're not 6 year olds like the rpi's website suggests -.-
[0:15] <nicolas17> eh, the same was the case for LEGO Robotics
[0:15] <nicolas17> there were 6 year olds using the LEGO Mindstorms
[0:16] <nicolas17> but sometimes their parents were making alternative firmwares :P
[0:16] <dr_willis> 'but honey, im buying theses legos for the kids... not me..'
[0:16] <GreeningGalaxy> nobody gets a Pi because they want to learn to code. People get a Pi because they want to put together a cool project and haven't programmed before, and need a place to start.
[0:16] * NecessaryEvil (~Necessary@230.72-245-81.adsl-dyn.isp.belgacom.be) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:16] <cnnx> the odroid looks like for hard core hackers
[0:16] <cnnx> not so user friendly
[0:16] <hmoney> i guess i meant their target market hasnt changed yet their customers have
[0:17] <GreeningGalaxy> I think getting an ODROID running would be about as hard as getting an RPi running, honestly. It's just that when some driver doesn't work or you can't figure something out, there won't be many people to turn to
[0:17] * aballier (~alexis@gentoo/developer/aballier) Quit (Ping timeout: 255 seconds)
[0:17] <hmoney> yeah agreed
[0:18] * dastaan (~dastaan@63-152-83-109.cdrr.qwest.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:18] * aballier (~alexis@gentoo/developer/aballier) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:18] <GreeningGalaxy> I like the look of the C2. I might get one, the built-in ADC, off-GPIO serial debug interface, and faster CPU are tempting.
[0:19] <hmoney> for your robot?
[0:19] <cnnx> what do you guys do with your rpi
[0:19] <GreeningGalaxy> nah, probably for physics research stuff, which is most of what I use RPis for these days
[0:20] <GreeningGalaxy> I have like 5 or 6 Pis of various types that belong in varying degrees to myself and my department.
[0:20] <cnnx> GreeningGalaxy: whats a C2?
[0:20] * stiv (~steve@blender/coder/stivs) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:20] <GreeningGalaxy> ODROID C2
[0:20] <nicolas17> I'm currently (like *right now*) using my rpi to upload lots of data
[0:20] <cnnx> GreeningGalaxy: cool what do you like about it
[0:20] <nicolas17> because it's silent and I can leave it running 24/7
[0:20] <cnnx> im asking questions in #odroid but no one is answering
[0:20] * blinkingprompt (~blinkingp@unaffiliated/blinkingprompt) Quit (Max SendQ exceeded)
[0:20] <cnnx> weird
[0:21] * govg (~govg@unaffiliated/govg) Quit (Ping timeout: 260 seconds)
[0:21] <nicolas17> it's saturday, people have other things to do :P
[0:21] <GreeningGalaxy> cnnx: silent, low-power, doesn't mind running forever, and has a GPIO interface that can connect to arbitrary instrumentation
[0:21] <nicolas17> how many hours did you wait for an answer?
[0:21] * NecessaryEvil (~Necessary@230.72-245-81.adsl-dyn.isp.belgacom.be) Quit (Quit: Colloquy for iPhone - http://colloquy.mobi)
[0:21] <cnnx> GreeningGalaxy: i never learned to use my GPIO pins on my embeddedarm.com cpu
[0:21] <cnnx> what could you do with those pins?
[0:21] <hmoney> all the things
[0:21] <GreeningGalaxy> literally anything
[0:21] <hmoney> people setup sprinkler systems
[0:22] <hmoney> setup lighting behind their tv
[0:22] <hmoney> weather stations with different sensors
[0:22] <cnnx> i used phidget interfaces to conect to motor controllers that drive my dc motors on my robot, could ihave used the gpio pins to power the motors directly?
[0:22] <hmoney> with 3.3v
[0:22] <GreeningGalaxy> you can set them to 0/3.3V through software whenever you like, and with pretty good switching characteristics, so the possibilities are very diverse
[0:22] <GreeningGalaxy> I would NOT use the pins to power motors directly. Get MOSFETs.
[0:22] * zub1n (~zub1n@unaffiliated/zub1n) Quit (Read error: No route to host)
[0:22] <cnnx> ok
[0:23] <cnnx> my knowledge of electronics is not advanced
[0:23] <cnnx> beginner
[0:23] <cnnx> thats why i bought phidget
[0:23] * dastaan (~dastaan@63-152-83-109.cdrr.qwest.net) Quit (Ping timeout: 276 seconds)
[0:23] <nicolas17> the max current of the GPIO pins is pretty low
[0:23] <GreeningGalaxy> running LEDs off of them is usually alright, but nothing bigger.
[0:23] <cnnx> and i know you can set each pin on or off or read its state right? either 0V or +3.3V ?
[0:23] <GreeningGalaxy> (where 'bigger' means 'lower impedance')
[0:23] <dr_willis> been learning arduino stuff the last few months. the knowledge from it - i can apply to the pi as well. ;)
[0:23] <GreeningGalaxy> cnnx: yup, just so
[0:23] <cnnx> and some of the pins are GND
[0:24] <cnnx> so you can write your own driver?
[0:24] * mimer (~Mimer@unaffiliated/mimer) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:24] <cnnx> to drive a device via the gpio?
[0:24] <cnnx> the driver will process the state of the pins?
[0:24] * swift110 (~swift110@unaffiliated/swift110) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:24] <GreeningGalaxy> some are always 0V, and two each are always 3.3V and 5V. The rest are software-configurable.
[0:24] * NecessaryEvil (~Necessary@230.72-245-81.adsl-dyn.isp.belgacom.be) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:25] <cnnx> i may get the rpi just because i like the support in here already compared to odroid
[0:25] <methuzla> cnnx: do you know any programming languages?
[0:25] <GreeningGalaxy> Some of the pins are also serial interfaces (e.g. SPI, I2C) in addition to GPIOs. And two of them are supposed to be for reading EEPROMs on HATs, and nobody tells you that you can use them, but you can.
[0:25] <cnnx> yes
[0:25] <cnnx> C
[0:25] <cnnx> php
[0:25] <cnnx> html
[0:25] <cnnx> css
[0:25] <cnnx> SQL
[0:25] <dr_willis> http://pinout.xyz/ has a good info on the pins.
[0:25] <cnnx> and learning python
[0:25] <methuzla> html is not a programming language
[0:25] * sockofleas (81a1e391@gateway/web/freenode/ip.129.161.227.145) Quit (Ping timeout: 260 seconds)
[0:25] <cnnx> you're right, its a markup language
[0:25] <cnnx> so still language
[0:25] * dreamon (~dreamon@unaffiliated/dreamon) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:26] * GreeningGalaxy grumbles: php is debatably a programming language, even if it technically meets the definition.
[0:26] <nicolas17> lol
[0:26] <cnnx> where can i go buy one tonight?
[0:26] <cnnx> rpi
[0:27] <methuzla> for C look at wiringpi, for python look at RPi.GPIO or (theres another? just called gpio?)
[0:27] <cnnx> walmart/
[0:27] <cnnx> ?
[0:27] <nicolas17> you already know the most important language needed for programming anyway
[0:27] <dr_willis> frys electronics in USA. or MicroCenter
[0:27] <cnnx> im in canada
[0:27] <cnnx> best buy?
[0:27] <dr_willis> Never seen them at beast buy here.
[0:27] * govg (~govg@unaffiliated/govg) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:28] <dr_willis> Radio shack i think was supposed to start stocking them.
[0:28] <nicolas17> really?
[0:28] <cnnx> let me check thesource
[0:28] <cnnx> we dont have radio shack any longer here
[0:28] <GreeningGalaxy> there's one for python called pigpiod, has some interesting extra features like DMA controller PWM
[0:28] <dr_willis> but all the Radio Shacks here - closed down.
[0:28] <nicolas17> I thought radioshack would have them since forever
[0:28] <dr_willis> Radioshack around here - was just another cellphone store. with some junk in the back for us old timers.
[0:28] <GreeningGalaxy> the only place I know has them in Chicago is Micro Center, and there's only one of those in the whole city
[0:28] <cnnx> yeah thesource has it
[0:28] <cnnx> but says ONLINE ONLY
[0:29] <nicolas17> impatient kids these days
[0:29] <dr_willis> order 2 pis :) you will want more..
[0:29] <nicolas17> I bought it online
[0:29] <swift110> lol
[0:29] * shantorn (~Shantorn@97-120-236-210.ptld.qwest.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:29] <swift110> pis are cool
[0:29] <nicolas17> sent it to my dad's hotel when he went to the US
[0:29] <GreeningGalaxy> I get everything online because I'm less impatient than I am willing to ride a dreadful CTA bus out to MC
[0:29] <nicolas17> then he brought it in his luggage
[0:29] <swift110> dr_willis: radio shacks here are closing down quite a bit as well
[0:29] <cnnx> http://www.thesource.ca/en-ca/computers-and-tablets/computer-components-and-parts/raspberry-pi-3-model-b-project-board-computer-starter-kit/p/108046566
[0:29] <cnnx> 100$
[0:30] <cnnx> has psu
[0:30] <cnnx> plastic case
[0:30] <cnnx> and the latest pi3
[0:30] <cnnx> right?
[0:30] <dr_willis> some starter kits are a bit overpriced.
[0:30] <cnnx> and 16gb
[0:30] * stiv (~steve@blender/coder/stivs) Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[0:30] <nicolas17> yeah, some kits are overpriced
[0:30] <nicolas17> but then you try to buy the components individually, and find you have to pay shipping separately for each, and some take a lot longer, and you have to get things from multiple places, and... meh just gimme the kit
[0:31] <dr_willis> it is worth splurging on a decent pi PS. seem way too many people have issues, that were due to cheap PS's
[0:31] <dr_willis> cases are subjective. :) i do like this 'flic' pi case. but its not really good for working with the pins.
[0:31] * zub1n (~zub1n@unaffiliated/zub1n) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:31] <cnnx> is it good to have irssi running on it 24/7 over wifi?
[0:32] <dr_willis> I got one case with LEGO pegs on it. and a Gopro mount.
[0:32] <GreeningGalaxy> Pibow Coupé is my favorite. Has the GPIO numbers marked.
[0:32] <nicolas17> why not
[0:32] <nicolas17> dr_willis: ooohhh
[0:32] <dr_willis> cnnx, had weechat running for months on mine.
[0:32] <GreeningGalaxy> cnnx: sure, I've racked up months of uptime on mine
[0:32] <dr_willis> weechat+znc
[0:32] <nicolas17> dr_willis: is its size a multiple of LEGO sizes too?
[0:32] <GreeningGalaxy> I think it is, yeah, I've seen some great lego cases
[0:33] <cnnx> some kits are expensive
[0:33] <cnnx> weather monitor kit
[0:33] * BOKALDO (~BOKALDO@87.110.100.80) Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[0:33] <cnnx> whats that
[0:33] <nicolas17> GreeningGalaxy: that's cool
[0:33] * NecessaryEvil (~Necessary@230.72-245-81.adsl-dyn.isp.belgacom.be) Quit (Quit: Colloquy for iPhone - http://colloquy.mobi)
[0:33] * waveform (~waveform@waveform.plus.com) Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[0:33] <dr_willis> https://www.amazon.com/compatible-SmartiPi-Raspberry-camera-GoPro/dp/B00UDP0A6Q/ref=sr_1_4?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1486855992&sr=1-4&keywords=smartpi
[0:33] <GreeningGalaxy> cnnx: because companies want to make more money than they would by selling the parts individually, since I don't think they really rake in much from just selling the boards alone
[0:33] <nicolas17> some day I should see if I can control my LEGO NXT from a raspi :)
[0:33] <GreeningGalaxy> cnnx: so they compensate by putting together kits with everything you need at a higher markup than usual
[0:34] * eb0t (~eblip@unaffiliated/eblip) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:34] <cnnx> whats the sense HAT
[0:34] <GreeningGalaxy> I think there's hardware available to make the Pi a drop-in replacement for the NXT? where did I read that...
[0:34] <nicolas17> GreeningGalaxy: wow
[0:34] <nicolas17> well the new NXT just runs Linux
[0:34] <nicolas17> so maybe
[0:34] <GreeningGalaxy> here we are: http://www.legoengineering.com/introducing-brickpi-lego-bricks-with-a-raspberry-pi-brain/
[0:35] <nicolas17> the EV3 I mean
[0:36] <cnnx> can i compile latest version of linux kernel on it
[0:36] <GreeningGalaxy> cnnx: Sense HAT is an add-on board that brings in a number of sensors and an RGB LED matrix
[0:36] <cnnx> like my main linux computer has this
[0:36] <nicolas17> cnnx: I don't think the raspi has enough RAM to compile the kernel, and either way it would take a very long time, but you could cross-compile it from a computer
[0:36] <cnnx> Linux cactus 4.9.9-gentoo #1 SMP Sat Feb 11 15:21:01 EST 2017 x86_64 Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4790K CPU @ 4.00GHz GenuineIntel GNU/Linux
[0:36] <GreeningGalaxy> I think it has most of the sensors a modern smartphone has. Magnetometer, gyroscope, I think also temp and baro
[0:36] <GreeningGalaxy> I believe you can run Gentoo on a Pi, so sure, why not
[0:36] <cnnx> gentoo? nice
[0:36] <GreeningGalaxy> go nuts

[0:36] <cnnx> my fav os
[0:37] <cnnx> you guys use apple macs?
[0:37] <GreeningGalaxy> https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Raspberry_Pi
[0:37] <dr_willis> i tried and gave up on apple stuff ages ago.
[0:37] <GreeningGalaxy> Nah, I use a Panasonic Toughbook for my main daily driver these days, running Manjaro
[0:37] <cnnx> dr_willis:me too.. my last mac was an emac in 2004
[0:38] <cnnx> but now i have an iphone and apple watch
[0:38] <GreeningGalaxy> I also have an HP Envy running Arch, but its hardware sucks and I hate it.
[0:38] <cnnx> and i like it
[0:38] <nicolas17> damn
[0:38] <cnnx> why damn
[0:38] <dr_willis> joy of linux. You can get by with cheaper hardware. ;)
[0:38] <nicolas17> I'm uploading several gigs of data from an external hard disk, using a raspi, this would be much more power-efficient if I could read a bunch of files and then spin down the disk
[0:38] <GreeningGalaxy> dr_willis: indeed
[0:38] <dr_willis> and often have fewer problems with older harwaare then new stuff.
[0:38] <nicolas17> but that would need a ton of scripting...
[0:39] <nicolas17> the data doesn't fit in the SD card
[0:39] <GreeningGalaxy> My first laptop was an ancient Dell Inspiron. Ran terribly under Windows XP, but Debian 6 Squeeze breathed new life into it
[0:41] <GreeningGalaxy> this machine has a 1.66 GHz Intel C2D and integrated Intel graphics, but still handles KDE without much trouble (although admittedly I did turn off all the graphical effects).
[0:41] <cnnx> my first laptop i bought new in 2000
[0:41] <cnnx> from compusa
[0:41] <cnnx> was a satellite toshiba
[0:41] <cnnx> 500mhz p3
[0:42] <cnnx> ran linux on it till hardware started failing hehe
[0:42] <cnnx> still have it though
[0:42] <cnnx> paid 2000$USD at the time
[0:42] <GreeningGalaxy> I've only ever bought one laptop new and it was that dreadful HP, lol. Honestly I feel like these days laptops are becoming more like cars, it makes more sense to always buy a good one used instead of whatever you can find new.
[0:43] <cnnx> i dont go tru laptops that often

[0:43] <cnnx> they make them good

[0:45] <cnnx> yeah i gotta let some of my hardware die out
[0:45] <cnnx> i buy too much of it
[0:45] <cnnx> my mother gives me a hard time
[0:45] <cnnx> "you already have a computer!" "you only need 1"
[0:45] <nicolas17> heh
[0:45] <nicolas17> when I gave my dad my raspi wishlist
[0:45] <GreeningGalaxy> When I got this, it had close to 14000 hours of runtime recorded in the little BIOS odometer thingy
[0:45] <nicolas17> I thought he was going to complain
[0:46] <cnnx> GreeningGalaxy: thats a cool feature
[0:46] <GreeningGalaxy> yeah, I'd not seen it before
[0:46] <nicolas17> instead, he purchased on amazon and got a suggestion for another accessory and said "hey this one looks cool, want one too?"

[0:52] <alsaiduq> GreeningGalaxy: I have a Rpi and a Camera, i'd like to use the camera to track and follow an object
[0:53] <GreeningGalaxy> you're talking about a problem whose mathematical structure is far more complicated than an implementation of it on a particular piece of hardware

[2:46] <r5253> it's not the camera stuff i'm worried about, it's just how to get the pi to listen for any command from my web server
[2:48] <hmoney> most likely people will tell you http requests or get fancy with jquery and the like
[2:49] <nicolas17> why even use http between the pi and the server?
[2:49] <hmoney> like http get and http post with the raspi listening

[2:52] <hmoney> can you link me to learn more about that nicolas17?
[2:52] <nicolas17> HTTP is on top of TCP and adds limitations
[2:52] <nicolas17> like "only client sends request"
[2:53] <nicolas17> but you can invent your own protocol going over tcp directly
[2:53] <r5253> nicolas17, but since http is tcp i'm guaranteed tcp can get out, right?
[2:53] * designbybeck (~designbyb@x174y241.angelo.edu) has joined #raspberrypi
[2:53] <nicolas17> I have no idea what your firewall allows or doesn't
[2:53] <nicolas17> but if you do an outgoing connection from the pi, you don't have problems with having to port-forward, or having to know the pi's IP address, etc
[2:54] <hmoney> makes sense
[2:54] <r5253> see but the idea is that i would sell these so i can't know the user's router config
[2:54] <nicolas17> you can't guarantee it will work
[2:55] <nicolas17> the router config could be "only allow connecting via HTTP to websites on a whitelist" :P
[2:55] <r5253> excluding the whitelist part, the whole tcp:80 thing is exactly why my first idea was polling
[2:55] <nicolas17> but using outgoing connections would be much easier to get working than allowing incoming connections

[4:32] <GreeningGalaxy> I have this little USB wireless mouse. Works fine on laptops, but whenever I plug it into a Pi, it's both very slow and has a significant delay between being moved and having the pointer move onscreen. I never have any trouble with this mouse on any other kind of computer, or any trouble with any other mouse on an RPi. Any ideas?
[4:33] <nicolas17> huh
[4:33] <nicolas17> weird
[4:33] <nicolas17> slowness could be fixed in your X configuration (possibly through your desktop environment's GUI config)
[4:33] <nicolas17> but the delay is weird
[4:33] <GreeningGalaxy> yeah, that was my thought too.
[4:34] <GreeningGalaxy> Last time I saw that it was because the HDMI TV I was hooked up to had a nice little (not) delay built-in between the cable and the screen. None of that here.
[4:34] <nicolas17> any delay when typing?
[4:35] <GreeningGalaxy> nope.
[4:35] <nicolas17> yeah then it's not graphics
[4:35] <nicolas17> hm
[4:35] <GreeningGalaxy> and no delay with a different mouse on the otherwise unchanged setup, either, so definitely not graphics

[4:48] <overrider> I have a RPI3 and the official Raspberry 7" Touchscreen. I connected all up, but have had tremendous problems with Raspbian not starting, or the system going blank and resetting half-boot, etc. Obviously power issues, as no matter what i do i see the little lightning bolt in the top right corner of the screen. But this cannot be as i have an excellent Desktop power supply which should supply 4 Amps easily. Also in the meantime i am
[4:48] <overrider> powering the system from one regular wall plug AND the desktop power supply at the same time - i get Raspbian to boot fine, but the lightning icon just stays. What else could i do to troubleshoot this?
[4:49] <overrider> My Display is V1.1 , and i got two to make sure its not a display issue. Same thing
[4:50] <GreeningGalaxy> hmm. Anyone know if the Pi negotiates for power from its MicroUSB port? It might not be drawing all the power it needs because it can't get permission from the host.
[4:50] <nicolas17> I don't think it does
[4:51] * webturtle0 (~webturtle@69.174.185.34) Quit (Ping timeout: 260 seconds)
[4:51] <GreeningGalaxy> yeah, I'm seeing a forum post that says no Pi has the data lines of the power port connected at all, and I think I can confirm from looking at my own board now
[4:51] <overrider> I tried supplying power directly to the 5V /GND pins also without going trough microUSB; same.
[4:52] <nicolas17> no idea, hopefully your board isn't damaged :/
[4:52] <GreeningGalaxy> can you measure the current it draws and see if it's excessive?
[4:52] <GreeningGalaxy> That could at least narrow down the problem
[4:54] <GreeningGalaxy> If it's got a bad part somewhere that's drawing a sizable current, it could be pegging your power supply. That would be consistent with what you said about connecting up two supplies fixing the problem.
[4:55] <overrider> I can see my power supply display says its drawing 262mA currently
[4:55] <overrider> Ive seen it go up to 800mA during boot or when opening chrome or doing something else with it, but it seems to go down to 300mA on average when idle

[4:58] <GreeningGalaxy> hmm, that is interesting
[4:59] <GreeningGalaxy> ...huh. My pi3 has a pair of empty solder blobs where the markings indicate C211 is supposed to be. The blobs look nice and even so I don't think it got torn off, but... can anyone with a Pi3 v1.2 confirm?

[5:21] <GreeningGalaxy> so it's a complete no-brainer that they went on to produce the A+ once they could get tooled up for more different board layouts, which actually shortens the board and gets rid of those extra pads, and also tosses the linear regulators from the first Pi

[5:26] <GreeningGalaxy> it only cost a buck from Micro Center, but the value of Zeros is most decidedly not monetary.

[12:44] <cnnx> good morning
[12:45] <cnnx> what do you gyus think of this? https://www.amazon.ca/CanaKit-Raspberry-Complete-Starter-Kit/dp/B01CCF6V3A/ref=sr_1_fkmr0_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1486899634&sr=1-1-fkmr0&keywords=pasberry+pi+3

[12:46] <Habbie> i don't understand how the SD reader works
[12:46] <Habbie> but generally this looks fine
[12:46] <cnnx> what do you mean
[12:46] <cnnx> sdcard is built in isn't it?
[12:47] <Habbie> there's a usb sd reader in this kit
[12:47] <Habbie> for use on your PC i presume
[12:47] <Habbie> but the picture confuses me
[12:47] * blackwind_123 (~IceChat9@117.194.62.28) has joined #raspberrypi
[12:47] <cnnx> makes sense
[12:47] <aZz7eCh> lol look at it
[12:47] <aZz7eCh> shoved up the end
[12:47] <cnnx> to use it on your pc
[12:47] <Habbie> aZz7eCh, exactly
[12:47] <Habbie> cnnx, yes, it makes sense that it's there :)
[12:47] <Habbie> 5th picture
[12:48] * el_bamba (~roberto@149.198.94.90.dynamic.jazztel.es) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[12:48] <cnnx> the price seems fine too
[12:48] <Habbie> yes
[12:48] <cnnx> cause 100$ cad is about 70$usd
[12:48] <cnnx> and you get a lot
[12:49] <cnnx> why do you need a heatsink?
[12:49] <cnnx> they include 2?
[12:49] <Habbie> you don't need it
[12:49] <cnnx> are they applied with thermal paste?
[12:49] <cnnx> ok
[12:50] <Habbie> my favourite local store does EUR 65 for pi+power+case+16gb sd
[12:50] <Habbie> no hdmi, no reader
[12:50] <Habbie> which is also 70$usd
[12:50] <Habbie> so yes, good deal
[12:50] <cnnx> my main display has hdmi but my second monitor which is older only has dvi/vga i think... do i need an adaptor too use it with it?
[12:50] <Habbie> yes
[12:50] <Habbie> hdmi<>dvi-adapters are very simple
[12:50] <Habbie> hdmi<>vga-adapters are tricky
[12:50] <Habbie> note that hdmi->dvi loses sound
[12:50] <cnnx> oh ok
[12:51] <cnnx> so i'll use hdmi
[12:51] <cnnx> on my 27
[12:51] <Habbie> https://www.amazon.ca/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=hdmi+dvi
[12:51] <Habbie> first two items here would work for you
[12:51] <cnnx> besides i just need it to set it up then i will ssh
[12:51] <Habbie> you can ssh from the start
[12:51] <Habbie> if you just image raspbian and put a file called 'ssh' on
[12:51] <cnnx> even on wifi?
[12:51] <cnnx> setup the paswswd
[12:51] <Habbie> you can also put wpa_supplicant.conf on there
[12:52] <cnnx> the noob comes with many distros?
[12:52] <Habbie> yes
[12:52] <cnnx> which do you use
[12:52] <Habbie> i use raspbian lite mostly
[12:52] <Habbie> on which wifi pre-setup does not work, i read
[12:52] <Habbie> but if you have a monitor and a keyboard, just setup with that, indeed

[12:53] <cnnx> debian 8?
[12:53] <Habbie> yes
[12:54] <cnnx> ok
[12:54] <cnnx> i like that rpi is ARM cpu
[12:54] <Habbie> and note that if you install lite, you can just install anything you are missing compared to full
[12:54] <Habbie> what will you use the pi for?
[12:54] <cnnx> is there a future rpi comming out soon?
[12:54] <cnnx> well irssi/tmux for now 24/7
[12:54] <Habbie> ah
[12:54] <cnnx> so i dont lose my sessions
[12:54] <Habbie> lite is fine for that
[12:54] <cnnx> and some programming
[12:54] <Habbie> it's exactly what i'm typing from right now
[12:54] <cnnx> ok
[12:54] <Habbie> well, weechat/tmux, but same old
[12:54] <cnnx> cool
[12:55] <cnnx> how much did you spend total on your hardware

[12:55] <Habbie> pi 2, feb 2015
[12:55] <Habbie> pi 3, feb 2016
[12:55] <Habbie> you can make assumptions from that
[12:55] <cnnx> ok
[12:55] <cnnx> so this one just came out
[12:55] <cnnx> last year
[12:55] <Habbie> yes
[12:55] <cnnx> a new one is comming out this month???
[12:55] <Habbie> you could assume that
[12:55] <cnnx> wow
[12:55] <cnnx> ill wait
[12:55] <Habbie> it could be wrong
[12:55] <Habbie> as for how much i spent
[12:56] <Habbie> i don't know
[12:56] <Habbie> i have like 5 pis, 3 cases, breadboards, LEDs, etc.
[12:56] <cnnx> sorry for pumping you with questions

[12:56] <cnnx> 5 pis thats cool
[12:56] * codestorm (~codestorm@2605:e000:9196:e300:fc29:f9a7:1635:a02b) has joined #raspberrypi
[12:56] <cnnx> you will buy a new one?
[12:56] <cnnx> when it comes out
[12:56] <Habbie> depends on what awesome features it has
[12:57] <cnnx> maybe usb3 like odroid?
[12:57] <Habbie> for my irc needs, the pi2 is fine
[12:57] <Habbie> i might even host my mail on it
[12:57] <Habbie> not sure yet
[12:57] <cnnx> how can you do that with a dynamic ip?
[12:57] <cnnx> exim4 will freak out
[12:57] <cnnx> or postfix
[12:57] <Habbie> my ipv6 is static
[12:57] <Habbie> my ipv4 has been static in practice as well
[12:57] <cnnx> at home?
[12:57] <Habbie> yes
[12:57] * webturtle0 (~webturtle@69.174.185.34) Quit (Ping timeout: 245 seconds)
[12:57] <Habbie> well the ipv6 is a tunnel
[12:58] <cnnx> can you get mail from ipv4 from your ipv6?
[12:58] <Habbie> but i have a bunch of static v4 and v6 stuff in a datacenter and i will tunnel from that
[12:58] <Habbie> no
[12:58] <Habbie> so inbound v4 mail will rely on that tunnel
[12:58] <Habbie> i have a /27
[12:58] <cnnx> i work for a dedicated host and vps/cloud provider
[12:58] <Habbie> so plenty of IPs
[12:58] <Habbie> right
[12:58] <Habbie> then you could do the same
[12:58] <cnnx> yeah
[12:58] <Habbie> get the smallest VM, one or two IPs, take it home
[12:59] <cnnx> but
[12:59] <cnnx> how do you host on your pi
[12:59] <cnnx> at home
[12:59] <Habbie> i would run postfix+dovecot i think
[12:59] <cnnx> its better to host it on your vps
[12:59] <Habbie> or is that not the question
[12:59] <Habbie> well i don't want my mail sitting on someone else's shared vps storage
[12:59] <Habbie> other than that, yes, vps would be better :)

[12:59] <cnnx> i have fiber
[12:59] <cnnx> 10mbps
[13:00] <cnnx> im sure it changes
[13:00] <Habbie> it would work because you tunnel your static IP from your vps

[13:00] <Habbie> i'm not saying you should do this, i'm just saying it is possible and it is what i will be doing
[13:00] <cnnx> you mean the A record of your mail server is on your vps which connects to my home server (rpi) via openvpn or soemthing?
[13:00] <Habbie> either on the pi2 or the pcengines apu

[13:01] <Habbie> but my vps will be quite close network-wise

[13:14] <cnnx> the rpi doesnt have a RTC? thats disapointing
[13:14] <cnnx> needs to run ntpclient all the time?
[13:15] <Habbie> lack of rtc just means you lose the clock on powerdown
[13:15] <Habbie> when it's up the kernel will just keep time

[13:19] <cnnx> Habbie: hmmm
[13:19] <Habbie> it's just hanging from a utp cable in my wiring closet
[13:19] <cnnx> i still need the PSU,hdmi cable
[13:19] <Habbie> i want to nail it to the wall
[13:19] <cnnx> it will come to close to 100
[13:19] <cnnx> and a case
[13:19] <Habbie> sure, if you don't have those things lying around it's different

[13:28] <cnnx> but remember
[13:28] <Habbie> i could understand the split if one of them was realtime
[13:28] <cnnx> this was designed and built in 2011
[13:28] <Habbie> uhuh
[13:28] <cnnx> spend about 2k back then

[13:34] <cnnx> you backup all your stuff to it?
[13:34] <Habbie> that's the plan but i'm not very good at it yet ;)
[13:34] <cnnx> raid 1 config?
[13:34] <Habbie> md2 : active raid10 sda3[0] sdd3[3] sdc3[2] sdb3[1]
[13:35] <cnnx> raid 10
[13:35] <cnnx> nice
[13:35] <cnnx> double raid
[13:35] <Habbie> it's that or raid1+linear
[13:35] <cnnx> ok
[13:35] <Habbie> 5.5T usable in any case
[13:35] <cnnx> how do you back it up?
[13:35] <cnnx> scp?
[13:35] <cnnx> with cron scripts?
[13:35] <Habbie> i have duplicity set up but i'm not happy with it
[13:35] <Habbie> think i'll go for cron+rsync
[13:35] <cnnx> what is that
[13:35] <cnnx> backup software for linux?
[13:35] <Habbie> i do periodic manual backups with rsync already
[13:35] <Habbie> yes
[13:35] <mlelstv> .oO( who is backing up the backups ? )
[13:36] <Habbie> mlelstv, nobody!
[13:36] <cnnx> i dont even have a nas
[13:36] <cnnx> seems everyone has nas
[13:36] <Habbie> it also holds our photos, various downloaded things, etc.
[13:36] <cnnx> i backup my stuff on a different disk on my computer
[13:36] <cnnx> with cron tar/gzip
[13:36] <Habbie> when i download software images i put them on the NAS so my laptop does not fill up
[13:36] <mlelstv> I'm running amanda for backup.
[13:36] <cnnx> and my servers from ovh backup locally over the internet
[13:36] <Habbie> my mail will also go on the NAS, with NFS to the pi or the apu
[13:37] <mlelstv> and mirror the backup disk to a NAS with rsync.
[13:37] <cnnx> Habbie: do you create seperate /directories for different hosts on your lan on your NAS?
[13:37] <Habbie> yes
[13:37] <cnnx> is it a SBC managing it via ssh?
[13:37] <Habbie> hmm?
[13:37] <cnnx> like
[13:37] <cnnx> the nas
[13:37] <cnnx> has a motherboard/cpu?
[13:37] <Habbie> yes
[13:37] <cnnx> ok
[13:37] <cnnx> how much did you spend on the nas
[13:38] <Habbie> 1.6ghz armv5tel
[13:38] <cnnx> maybe i should buy a nas before a rpi
[13:38] <Habbie> 512mb RAM so don't want to run mail on it directly
[13:38] <Habbie> i'm not sure, 300 bucks with disks i think - it is second hand
[13:38] <Habbie> cnnx, you could also turn the pi into a (somewhat slow) NAS with some USB disks
[13:38] <cnnx> i had a linksys nlsu once (dont remember the spellling)
[13:38] <Habbie> i remember those
[13:38] <cnnx> it was cute
[13:38] <cnnx> but i bricked it
[13:39] <Habbie> not fixable?
[13:39] <cnnx> dont remember
[13:39] <cnnx> was about 10 years ago
[13:39] <Habbie> my wife used https://www.amazon.com/ADDONICS-TECH-NASU2/dp/B016YJY5ZG%3FSubscriptionId%3DAKIAILSHYYTFIVPWUY6Q%26tag%3Dduckduckgo-d-20%26linkCode%3Dxm2%26camp%3D2025%26creative%3D165953%26creativeASIN%3DB016YJY5ZG before we got a real nas
[13:39] <Habbie> not at that price though
[13:39] <Habbie> also a cute thing
[13:39] <Habbie> usb on one end, ethernet on the other, done
[13:39] <Habbie> well plus power
[13:39] <cnnx> oh this is for work?
[13:39] <cnnx> or home?
[13:39] <cnnx> cause you said we
[13:39] <Habbie> home
[13:39] <cnnx> ok
[13:39] <AlwaysAwkward> Hello what software do you use in your pi?
[13:40] <Habbie> but i work from home
[13:40] <AlwaysAwkward> not os, software
[13:40] <Habbie> so that changes the balance a bit
[13:40] <AlwaysAwkward> As in programs.
[13:40] <cnnx> Habbie: 100% ?
[13:40] <Habbie> cnnx, 90%
[13:40] <cnnx> Habbie: thats nice.. i spend 4 hours a day commuting
[13:40] <Habbie> AlwaysAwkward, mine mostly runs tmux+weechat
[13:40] <Habbie> cnnx, ouch
[13:40] <cnnx> yeah
[13:40] <cnnx> cause im scared to take the subway
[13:40] <Habbie> cnnx, my commute is similar if i go to the office, indeed
[13:40] <cnnx> and dont drive
[13:40] <cnnx> so i take 3 buses
[13:40] <Habbie> cnnx, so you take the bus?
[13:40] <Habbie> ah
[13:40] <AlwaysAwkward> Does anyone know of creative software uses for the pi?
[13:41] <Habbie> AlwaysAwkward, what do you mean by creative?
[13:41] <AlwaysAwkward> Everything besides Kodi, emulation and which does not imply using additional uncommon hardware

[13:44] <Habbie> a month?!
[13:44] <cnnx> so they cant complain
[13:44] <cnnx> for 2 months
[13:44] <cnnx> but its a fairly big home
[13:44] <cnnx> 4 bedrooms
[13:44] <Habbie> my electricity bill is about EUR60/month
[13:44] <Habbie> the heating bill is twice that though

[13:45] <cnnx> is it better?
[13:46] <Habbie> the compute module is for integration
[13:46] <Habbie> you need a module to stick it in
[13:46] <cnnx> can the rpi's be stacked up for paraell computing?

[13:47] <clever> Habbie: what kind of single system image software would you recomend?
[13:47] <Habbie> clever, raspbian lite or full
[13:47] <cnnx> compile gentoo updates
[13:47] <Habbie> cnnx, ah
[13:47] <cnnx> takes forever
[13:47] <Habbie> cnnx, yes, just set up distcc and ccache, done
[13:47] <cnnx> thats really interesting
[13:47] <clever> Habbie: rasbian isnt a single-system image framework
[13:47] <cnnx> are the 4 cores on the rpi3 HT?
[13:47] <Habbie> clever, then i don't understand the question
[13:47] <Habbie> cnnx, don't think so
[13:48] <cnnx> ok so to get lets say 24 cores i would need 6 rpi units
[13:48] <Habbie> yes
[13:48] <cnnx> and i connect them with 6 compute modules?
[13:48] <Habbie> no
[13:48] <Habbie> just get 6 rpi3
[13:48] <clever> Habbie: a single-system image is tools to make multiple independant systems behave like a single multi-core system
[13:48] <cnnx> oh
[13:48] <Habbie> and a network switch
[13:48] <cnnx> and distcc over lan
[13:48] <Habbie> clever, oh!
[13:48] <Habbie> clever, don't have anything to suggest, sorry
[13:48] <Habbie> cnnx, yes
[13:48] <cnnx> Habbie: how did you become an op in here?
[13:48] <clever> Habbie: so you can then run a stock OS on the cluster, and it can use the sum of the processing power
[13:48] <Habbie> clever, yes, i understand the reference now, but i'm not aware of any
[13:49] <cnnx> im looking for other deals for rpi kits and cant find a better one than the amazon.ca one so far

[14:05] <cnnx> my trainer told me im not allowed to have irc while i work
[14:05] <cnnx> and i dont even have root on my own kunbuntu station at work :(
[14:05] <Habbie> sure
[14:05] <Habbie> makes sense to me
[14:05] <cnnx> ok
[14:05] <cnnx> those things are normal?

[14:08] <cnnx> whats your opinion
[14:08] <Habbie> rpi community is great
[14:08] <cnnx> ok
[14:08] <Habbie> lots easier to get answers
[14:09] <Habbie> and you have a supported OS
[14:09] <cnnx> eventually rpi will have usb 3 right?
[14:09] <cnnx> if i want fast I/O
[14:09] <Habbie> odroid has different specs which may matter to you
[14:09] <Habbie> like that
[14:09] * ninjak (~ninjak@199.189.26.15) has joined #raspberrypi

[14:09] <Habbie> i'm sure rpi will grow usb3 at some point
[14:10] <Habbie> it basically comes down to what they manage to get in at the same price point in a new version
[14:10] <cnnx> let me go make sure my 27" has a hdmi connection indeed before i order this
[14:10] <Habbie> hehe
[14:11] <Habbie> i got a second hand hdmi/vga monitor for 20 bucks last week
[14:11] <Habbie> eh, dvi/vga

[14:14] * override_ (~overrider@unaffiliated/overrider) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[14:15] <cnnx> i dont like used stuff
[14:15] <cnnx> i buy new

[14:15] <Habbie> cnnx, when the difference is 20 vs. 120 i sometimes do ;)
[14:15] <cnnx> will take work on the rpi
[14:15] <Habbie> cnnx, quite likely
[14:15] <cnnx> i dont have extra mice/kb's around that much
[14:15] <cnnx> i have an ibm model m keyboard lying around
[14:15] <cnnx> with usb adaptor hehe
[14:15] <Habbie> well you don't need a mouse to set it up for irc
[14:16] <cnnx> my main one is a das keyboard
[14:16] <cnnx> doesnt it boot up in a window manager?
[14:16] * overrider (~overrider@unaffiliated/overrider) has joined #raspberrypi
[14:16] <cnnx> do control alt f2?

[14:16] <Habbie> full does, lite does not, but yes
[14:16] <Habbie> that will do
[14:16] <Habbie> and you don't need full for your irc box
[14:17] <cnnx> ok
[14:17] <ShorTie> you can always just vnc into full
[14:18] <cnnx> nice
[14:18] <Habbie> that's true
[14:18] <cnnx> sounds great
[14:18] <cnnx> i really wanna order it now
[14:18] <cnnx> lets see how fast amazon will deliver it
[14:18] <cnnx> since im a prime member
[14:18] <Habbie> is prime faster?
[14:18] <cnnx> yes
[14:18] <cnnx> and cheaper
[14:18] <cnnx> but i paid 70$/year for that
[14:19] <cnnx> basically all i need to do the first time with the mouse/kb is setup wifi
[14:19] <Habbie> hope it's worth it :)
[14:19] <cnnx> right?
[14:19] <Habbie> correct
[14:19] <Habbie> unless you put a cable in
[14:19] <cnnx> yeah
[14:19] <Habbie> then you don't even need mouse/kb
[14:19] <cnnx> i have cable too
[14:19] <cnnx> default ssh to 22 with root?
[14:20] <cnnx> on a dhcp ip?
[14:20] <Habbie> put a file called 'ssh' on the image after writing it
[14:20] <Habbie> and then yes, that
[14:20] <cnnx> i nmap my lan for thjerpi?
[14:20] <Habbie> user pi, password raspberry
[14:20] <Habbie> yes, i use nmap for that :)
[14:20] <cnnx> i have to write the image?
[14:20] <ShorTie> if you know your wifi setup, you can just put it into /boot and it will move it where it needs to be
[14:20] <cnnx> i thought it came insalled om the sdcard
[14:20] <ShorTie> sortta like the ssh file
[14:20] <Habbie> cnnx, there's noobs on the sdcard but i'm not sure you can enable ssh on it like this
[14:20] <Habbie> ShorTie, i read that only works on full though
[14:21] <cnnx> so thats why it ships with a sdcard reader for my pc?
[14:21] <cnnx> i need to configure the os first?
[14:21] <Habbie> cnnx, yes
[14:21] <cnnx> im sure the manual will explain
[14:21] <ShorTie> wifi setup, maybe
[14:21] <Habbie> ShorTie, i know ssh works on lite, yes
[14:21] <cnnx> fun fun
[14:21] <Habbie> cnnx, otherwise the internet will
[14:21] <Habbie> cnnx, or this channel
[14:21] <cnnx> you guys bored of your rpi yet
[14:21] <Habbie> cnnx, that's the pi benefit over odroid, so much documentation and people
[14:21] <Habbie> bored? no, it just works
[14:21] <cnnx> ok
[14:21] <cnnx> they are made in the UK right?
[14:22] <Habbie> mostly
[14:22] <cnnx> none made in north america?
[14:22] <Habbie> don't think so no
[14:22] <ShorTie> cnnx, if you use Gentoo, i'd go direct image to sdcard and not do the noobs thing

[14:22] <Habbie> cnnx, yes
[14:22] <cnnx> ShorTie: ill start with something easy
[14:22] <Habbie> cnnx, you want a decent 2.5A supply for the pi3 with wifi
[14:22] <Habbie> cnnx, as in those kits
[14:22] <cnnx> okay
[14:22] <cnnx> to power all usb devices you mean?
[14:22] <ShorTie> ssh file works on lite, done many times
[14:22] <Habbie> not just usb
[14:22] <Habbie> the wifi is not usb
[14:23] <Habbie> ShorTie, sure, but not on gentoo i bet
[14:23] <cnnx> wifi is onboard then
[14:23] <Habbie> yes
[14:23] <Habbie> but the onboard ethernet -is- usb :)
[14:23] <cnnx> does the unit run hot
[14:23] <Habbie> nah

[14:25] <alexandre9099> Habbie: i have a usb wifi pen and a usb 4g pen, my idea is to recive the "signal" from the 4g pen and send it to the usb wifi pen and the integrated ethernet
[14:25] <Habbie> alexandre9099, that works
[14:26] <cnnx> should i have it shipped to my local postal office
[14:26] <cnnx> since im at work during the day
[14:26] <cnnx> my mom doenst always answer the door hehe
[14:26] <Habbie> cnnx, yes
[14:26] <cnnx> cause the snow is in front of the steps
[14:26] <cnnx> its the first time i try to have it shipped there
[14:26] <alexandre9099> cool, i just have to get a sd card for my pi 1b :D my 3 is being used as a server XD
[14:26] <mlelstv> the theoretical limit for usb2 is ~400Mbit, but the pi usb has quite some overhead.
[14:26] <cnnx> but it gave me the option
[14:27] <cnnx> i should get an email when it gets there i guess
[14:27] <Habbie> mlelstv, there's also some signalling overhead - but i haven't looked for non-pi usb gbit benchmarks

[17:44] <leftyfb> solars: unless you're really adamant on building your own custom hardware version of the echo requiring a button press in order to get it to respond, it makes a lot more sense to just drop $50 on the echo dot.

[17:48] <clever> yeah, many ways to do it
[17:49] <ali1234> wemo is rubbish. never works properly
[17:49] <leftyfb> cheaper, more elegant and easier to use (Alexa, turn off alexa)
[17:49] <leftyfb> ali1234: works fine for me

[17:50] <solars> leftyfb: did you compare the benefits of a dot vs alexa pi? I'm not sure about the exact differences
[17:50] <ali1234> i use unbranded rf-controlled sockets and a PC dongle i built myself
[17:51] <leftyfb> solars: yup, if you're talking just echo functionality, the dot works better
[17:51] <solars> leftyfb: echo functionality in how far? and why better?

[17:52] <leftyfb> solars: the dot you can control entirely with your voice. The pi requires a button. The dot responds quicker (by design). I think there's even some services/skills you can't add to the alexa-pi. The dot is also a much neater and smaller package
[17:52] <ali1234> what is it actually useful for though?
[17:53] <leftyfb> an echo?
[17:53] <ali1234> yeah
[17:53] <ali1234> how do you use it, i mean really?
[17:53] <chisight> checking the weather.

[17:55] <ali1234> what about people who don't have home automation? any real uses for them?
[17:56] <leftyfb> ali1234: other than playing music(which I also do all the time) and maybe getting news(which I don't do) then probably no.
[17:56] <Chillum> leftyfb: just acting as though they use an arcane unit system abandoned by most of the world
[17:56] <chisight> you would think a pi would be able to capture sound, identify if the keyword was probably in the capture and only forward to amazon if the keyword was probably said.
[17:56] <leftyfb> ali1234: but I think that's like saying "unless you need it for driving places, what is a car good for?"
[17:56] <solars> leftyfb: what I want to do is use alexa to integrate voice control with openhab - which should work. what I'm unsure about is if I can use it with my existing multi room audio system based on logitech media server

[17:58] <clever> chisight: i believe the amazon echo does the same thing, the bigger question is what the NSA has added to the latest firmware update
[17:58] <clever> chisight: open source stuff, or anything with automatic updates disabled, is less likely to have backdoors added at a later date
[17:59] <chisight> clever: I'm less concerned about the nsa than being inundated with advertising based on my personal conversations.
[17:59] <ali1234> so do you ever use it to buy stuff from amazon?
[17:59] <clever> yeah, thats also an option
[17:59] <ali1234> that's the real point of it, isn't it?
[17:59] <clever> ali1234: that reminds me, i'm getting ad's from newegg, for products i bought off newegg over a year ago
[17:59] <leftyfb> clever: there is zero reason to believe anything open source has a back door more often than closed source. In fact I would wager it's quite the opposite.
[17:59] <leftyfb> ali1234: I have
[17:59] <clever> ali1234: the ad framework knows i looked at that product, but probably cant see my purchasing history
[18:00] <clever> ali1234: so its constantly reminding me, "you wanted this thing, buy it!!!"
[18:00] <leftyfb> ali1234: only because the deal only applied to using the dot to get the deal
[18:00] <ali1234> clever: i get recommended videos on youtube which are worryingly similar to stuff i looked at on reddit
[18:00] <clever> ali1234: heh, havent had that happen yet
[18:00] <chisight> i can't imagine it being useful for making amazon purchases. my delivery today includes cat food, selecting that from a verbal system would be hellish.
[18:01] <Chillum> I think it is like "order more catfood" and it uses the same type you bought before
[18:01] <leftyfb> chisight: i'm pretty sure you set your brand and amount in some preferences and just say "buy cat food" and it does
[18:01] <ali1234> yeah, like those buttons
[18:01] <Chillum> at least that is the only way it could make sense
[18:01] <ali1234> although you can "subscribe" to products on amazon now
[18:01] <Chillum> now, if you can make it so the cat can order more food
[18:01] * webturtle0 (~webturtle@69.174.185.34) Quit (Ping timeout: 255 seconds)
[18:01] <ali1234> so you dont need to do anything at all
[18:02] <chisight> I've looked at getting a cat food button. the options i select can't be done with their button device.
[18:02] <ali1234> you'd think they could ship you a custom pre-configured one
[18:02] <chisight> today's delivery is a subscription.
[18:02] <ali1234> for anything you want
[18:03] <chisight> ali1234: you would, but it seems they can't.
[18:03] <clever> that gives me an idea: https://www.sparkfun.com/products/13331
[18:03] <Chillum> amazon sucks in Canada, they have like half the stuff and it costs way more
[18:03] <clever> use this load cell to make a scale that the cat food bag/jar sits on
[18:03] <clever> so your raspberry pi can weight the cat food 24/7
[18:03] <leftyfb> ali1234: interestingly enough, I do use a dash button, but it's attached to the back of my pellet stove. I hit it whenever I use a bag of pellets. Then it adds a row to a spreadsheet with the date, time, and calculates how many bags ahead or behind I am, how many bags left, how many days left till my estimated end of the season and the date the current number of bags will last given an estimated usage pattern :)
[18:03] <ali1234> clever: i thought you were going to say weight the cat
[18:03] <clever> and if it goes below a set limit, but is also above the weight of the jar
[18:03] <clever> automaticaly order some
[18:04] <chisight> you'd also think they could merge subscription orders and regular orders into a single delivery, but they can't do that either.
[18:05] * zaherdirkey (~zaherdirk@37.48.149.138) has joined #raspberrypi
[18:05] <ali1234> amazon has a ridiculous amount of automation... surrised they can't do this stuff tbh
[18:05] <clever> ali1234: if you can weight the cat food back, you could make a cronjob that checks it every night
[18:05] <clever> and then bulks it in with other orders
[18:05] <chisight> we recently placed a subscription order with 5 items and a regular order with 5 items. we'll be getting 7 deliveries total.
[18:06] <clever> you could also defer the cat food order until other things are also low
[18:06] <ali1234> weigh the food, the cat, and the litter tray and perform thermodynamic analysis?
[18:06] <clever> so if you are under 40% food, wait till other things are on the list
[18:06] <clever> under 20% cat food, order it on its own
[18:06] <Chillum> nothing like adding NP complexity to shopping
[18:06] <chisight> cat food seems to ship separately do to the weight.
[18:06] <Chillum> https://xkcd.com/287/
[18:07] <ali1234> chisight: how big is your cat??
[18:07] <chisight> 6.5lbs.
[18:07] <clever> Chillum: lol, forgot about that one
[18:07] <ali1234> our cats got spoiled and would not eat cat food :/
[18:08] <chisight> our kitten eats 2 kinds of food. dry and wet. the wet is always the same flavor so as to try to avoid finikey eating.
[18:08] <s3nd1v0g1us> ours wont eat it after it sits for too long
[18:09] <chisight> yeah, the food puzzle tree doesn't get filled until it is completely empty. i don't want him eating stale food.
[18:10] <chisight> i do shake the food out for him sometimes, for my convenience though.

[18:24] <aries_liuxueyang> I search a lot. a wiki said it means that the pi didn't read the sdcard.
[18:24] <chisight> he's actually never gone outside the box. the worst he did was when we first got him he came with a low sided box and he pooped on the edge by mistake once. the box was never intended to be permanent but we did choose a much higher sided one just to be sure.
[18:25] <aries_liuxueyang> So I chroot into the system of sdcard using qemu on my pc.
[18:25] <aries_liuxueyang> I find it works well.
[18:25] <chisight> aries_liuxueyang: this is sounding likely. not all card work with pi. use a different card.

[18:40] <Habbie> aries_liuxueyang, raspbian lite is 1.3G
[18:40] <Habbie> aries_liuxueyang, well 1.4G
[18:40] <aries_liuxueyang> I will have a try.

[18:44] <Chillum> I would backup anything you want from the card that works in our desktop but not the pi
[18:44] <Chillum> in fact I go a step further and assume any OS on an SD card could have a disk failure at any moment and do regular backups to another system

[19:39] <SpeedEvil> SD cards are shit, in fact.
[19:39] <SpeedEvil> For many of them.
[19:39] <SpeedEvil> There are exceptions, but finding the exception is hard.
[19:40] <SpeedEvil> The problem is they're trying to run a disk on a tiny, tiny processor with many shortcuts in doing the wear leveling.
[19:40] <SpeedEvil> This, and bugs means that you can simply have it stop working when it gets confused.

[20:19] <aries_liuxueyang> hello, I'm back. I tried another sdcard. and it works.
[20:19] <leftyfb> mozak: can you elaborate on that?
[20:19] <mozak> i plan to put /boot on sd card
[20:19] <alexandre9099> leftyfb: if one fails it uses the other, so i can have a connection always on
[20:19] <mozak> and / on hard drive
[20:19] <aries_liuxueyang> don't know what's wrong with the original sdcard.
