[1:24] <Emil> I must say, the 1 wire driver is pretty god damn nice (combined with w1-gpip and w1-therm)
[1:25] <Emil> Do I need to always modprobe them on restart?
[1:25] <Emil> Or is just once enough?
[1:25] <jn__> modprobe only affects the running kernel
[1:25] <jn__> it doesn't persist restarts

[3:04] <gennro_> I just read about it today so I guess so
[3:06] <binaryhermit> new raspbian and noobs images
[3:07] <gennro_> hell would be nice to just get a rpi zero for under $10
[3:07] <binaryhermit> I suspect the new pi0 was someone breaking embargo
[3:08] <binaryhermit> since tomorrow here is the closest thing to the pi's 5th birthday
[3:08] <gennro_> ah
[3:08] <binaryhermit> since it came out leap day
[3:08] <binaryhermit> 2012
[3:11] <gennro_> could make for some neat iot devices that need a little extra power than a esp8266
[3:13] <shauno> I hope it's real, just because that case is cute as heck
[3:14] <gennro_> yeah hopefully
[3:14] <gennro_> and can buy it for less then $20
[3:18] <hmoney> at $14 it's still not as cheap as a pi zero with an ethernet to micro usb dongle from china

[3:19] <shauno> but if the wifi is off the usb, you can use the usb-otg modes with the wifi up, which would be nice
[3:20] <shauno> (but if it's not off the usb, it's a zero that doesn't do otg at all, which would make me much less interested)
[3:20] <ali1234> if they moved the test points again i will ragequit rpi forever

[7:26] <Populus> i'm on the hunt for a battery to connect to the pi so that it can last an hour or more without being connected
[7:27] <Populus> unfortunately the option i think seems most reasonable also means having to somehow attach a large, heavy and clunky powerbank
[7:27] <Populus> optimal would be to find just a small kind of battery that could connect to either gpio pins or a usb connection and that wouldn't take much space at all so that it could simply be attached to the backside of my 7" display
[7:28] <Populus> has anyone here attempted anything similar?
[7:28] * Cryterion (~cryterion@unaffiliated/cryterion) has joined #raspberrypi
[7:29] <Drzacek> Populus, Hi
[7:29] <Drzacek> which rpi?
[7:29] <Populus> the model B one
[7:29] <Drzacek> Ok. It all comes down to what you want to do with your rpi now
[7:30] <Drzacek> It would be best if you could meassure the current you are currently using when charger, then you can calculate how big your battery has to be to survive for >1h
[7:31] <Drzacek> or you could check the maximal current for rpi b and use this value - we could safely assume it won't suck anything more than that
[7:32] * webturtle0 (~webturtle@ has joined #raspberrypi
[7:32] * genericuser123 (~enter@ Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[7:32] <Drzacek> will you power your 7 inch LCD from separate source?
[7:35] <Populus> I want to use the whole setup as a kind of tablet for general use and the simplicity of bringing along wherever I go. The goal is to remove all cords attached.
[7:35] * tommy`` (UPP@ Quit (Disconnected by services)
[7:36] <Populus> From the raspberrypi website it says the USB maximum total current draw is at 500mA.

[7:36] * webturtle0 (~webturtle@ Quit (Ping timeout: 240 seconds)
[7:36] <Populus> The display is being charged through the gpio pins as I understand it. It is the default display touch 7" from raspberry themselves
[7:36] <Drzacek> yeah, but the rpi recommended PSU should have 1.2A
[7:37] <Populus> yeah
[7:37] * hypermist (~lick.my@ has joined #raspberrypi
[7:37] * Grapes (~greatgrap@ Quit (Quit: My MacBook has gone to sleep.)
[7:38] <Drzacek> well, the rpi1b will draw 0.5A when in use, the lcd screen also ~0.5A
[7:38] <Drzacek> thats 1A already
[7:39] <Drzacek> Since rpi1b doesn't have wifi, you will probably use wifi dongle - add another 0.250A
[7:39] * Grapes (~greatgrap@gateway/vpn/privateinternetaccess/greatgrapes) has joined #raspberrypi
[7:41] <Populus> Are there any modules which could increase the 1.2A cap?
[7:41] <Drzacek> thats not the problem
[7:41] <Populus> oh
[7:42] <Drzacek> you could just pull the voltage wires directly from your power source to your LCD - that way the current wouldn't go through rpi
[7:42] * tommy`` (UPP@host209-64-dynamic.250-95-r.retail.telecomitalia.it) has joined #raspberrypi
[7:43] <Populus> so we're looking at a battery that has gpio pins or alternatively soldering/attaching the wires manually
[7:43] <Drzacek> and of course - you can't connect lipo battery directly, you would need some kind of module - in simplest solution at least a voltage regulator, but I suggest you get one of those charging circuits - the cheap ones dont only allow USING or CHARGING, not both at the same time
[7:43] <Drzacek> anything wrong with just attaching micro USB cable with power?
[7:44] * Grapes (~greatgrap@gateway/vpn/privateinternetaccess/greatgrapes) Quit (Client Quit)
[7:44] <Populus> No, that's not an issue. But I would want to have the altrnative to both use and charge it simultaneously.

[7:47] <Populus> oh hey look at that, that seems perfect
[7:49] <Populus> with that I wouldn't have to alter the way i connect my display either
[7:49] <Populus> and presumably there's no issue with the power consumption either?
[7:50] <Drzacek> I don't think so
[7:50] <Populus> i could buy that, and only have to worry about how to fit it all into a neat container
[7:50] <Drzacek> I mean, this is rpi official lcd, I guess they knew what they were doing
[7:51] <Drzacek> Is this lcd compatible with 1b?
[7:51] <Drzacek> if it is officialy supported, then it has to work and there shouldn't be any issues

[7:52] <Populus> yes, I'm using the display at the moment. I have it all set up apart from the mobile battery.
[7:52] <Populus> err, the battery*, which is then to be attached to the backside.
[7:52] <Populus> unfortunately this pi does not have wifi included, but I have another pi being used for another project which i could simply swap out

[11:24] * nyt (nyt@countercultured.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[11:24] <Lartza> Create a file called ssh on the boot partition
[11:25] <Lartza> It's disabled by default
[11:25] <yumbox_> I enabled ssh with raspi-config
[11:25] <yumbox_> when I do `ssh localhost` on the rpi, i can login
[11:25] <Lartza> Is this from the local network or through internet?
[11:25] <Lartza> When it fails
[11:25] <yumbox_> `systemctl status ssh.service` shows sshd is running
[11:26] <yumbox_> direct ethernet connection
[11:26] <Lartza> Uhh direct as in with a cross-over cable?
[11:26] <yumbox_> i dont think it's a cross-over cable
[11:26] <Lartza> Then how do you think it would work
[11:26] <Lartza> I'm not sure RPi supports virtual cross-overing
[11:27] <yumbox_> hmm
[11:27] <yumbox_> I assumed it would be automatic in 2017, heh
[11:27] <Lartza> Eh
[11:28] <Lartza> yumbox_, Yeah I just searched, no Auto-MDIX on the RPi ethernet
[11:28] <Lartza> Okay others say it does support Auto-MDIX...
[11:29] <Lartza> Hmm so it should indeed support Auto-MDIX, so I'd check your static configuration
[11:29] <yumbox_> I can ping it
[11:30] <Lartza> Restart sshd?
[11:30] <Lartza> If it was started before the connection was established
[11:30] <Lartza> I'm kind of out of ideas unfortunately
[11:31] <yumbox_> tried that
[11:31] <yumbox_> it gives a `connection refused` when i have the cable connected
[11:31] <yumbox_> when i remove the cable, it just times out
[11:31] <Lartza> Well duh :P
[11:31] <yumbox_> that shows that it does connect to the pi
[11:32] <Lartza> Connection refused usually means the port is not listening or is being actively refused
[11:32] <Lartza> Firewall, sshd config
[11:32] <hypermist> i can't buy me a wifi one as much as i wanna
[11:32] <yumbox_> I've disabled my firewall on my laptop
[11:32] <yumbox_> is there any firewall on the pi?
[11:32] <Lartza> Uhh not sure
[11:32] <Lartza> sudo ufw status
[11:32] <yumbox_> ufw isnt installed on the pi
[11:33] <Lartza> Then I'd guess no

[12:02] <Lartza> Gadgetoid_Pim, Maybe four years ago unfortunately
[12:02] <Gadgetoid_Pim> Unless you're talking about playing the latest dull "AAA" titles, and pointless rubbish like Overwatch
[12:02] <Lartza> :D
[12:02] <Lonefish> aaah, graphics cards
[12:02] <ali1234> morning Gadgetoid :)
[12:02] <Lonefish> you could pay 700$ for a graphics card alone indeed

[12:04] <ali1234> so the order for zero stems. i forgot to change the thickness to 1.6mm, so they will be 1.2mm
[12:04] <Gadgetoid_Pim> I've noticed the classic desktop PC form-factor seems to be quite expensive these days, I guess they've totally lost their economy of scale edge
[12:04] <ali1234> i doubt this will cause a problem
[12:04] <Gadgetoid_Pim> Is the prototype I have 1.2mm?
[12:04] <ali1234> no it's 1.6
[12:04] <ali1234> the pi itself seems to be about 1.4
[12:04] <Gadgetoid_Pim> Would be interesting to see
[12:05] <Gadgetoid_Pim> Oh wait, I was thinking of ghetto-USB connectors, the thickness is kinda academic
[12:05] <ali1234> yes
[12:05] <Gadgetoid_Pim> You might get a tiny bit of nylon bolt protruding, but you're right
[12:05] <ali1234> i thought of doing it that way, but then i figured it would be too wobbly with the weight
[12:05] <ali1234> the bolts are massively oversized anyway
[12:05] <ali1234> you have to trim them

[12:06] <ali1234> they had exactly 200
[12:06] <ali1234> if you want more i'm going to have to find a new supplier
[12:07] <Gadgetoid_Pim> Do you have a part number, or anything?
[12:07] <ali1234> no
[12:07] <Gadgetoid_Pim> Okay, I'll set Niko on it
[12:08] <Gadgetoid_Pim> How much did you pay each, roughly?
[12:09] <ali1234> 12.8p each
[12:09] <ali1234> oh they have more stock on ebay... cool
[12:10] <ali1234> the footprint is identical to the one in the adafruit eagle library
[12:10] <Gadgetoid_Pim> Bet we can get 'em cheaper than that
[12:10] <ali1234> i dunno. they are like £1 on rs
[12:11] <Gadgetoid_Pim> If it were Japan, not China, that mass-produced cheap components I could have said: We've got a Jap for that
[12:12] <Gadgetoid_Pim> Although in retrospect that sounds a bit 1940s

[12:13] <ali1234> are the rules for buying zeros still the same?
[12:13] <Gadgetoid_Pim> For the foreseeable future, I believe so- simply because high demand
[12:14] <Gadgetoid_Pim> I think people massively, massively underestimate just how big the demand for tens, thousands, hundreds and hundreds of thousands is
[12:14] <ali1234> i really want a scroll phat hd, but i already have like 10 zeros
[12:15] <shauno> wow, they really are that much :/ I thought 1gbp was going to be a slight exageration. they only go below 60p by the thousand

[12:40] <password4> anyone know if at all theres an rpi hat for DB25 serial port?
[12:41] <Azelphur> shauno, certainly looks like it could do the job though, I notice the description mentions it takes some odd photos in daylight
[12:42] <BurtyB> shiftplusone, sounds good I'll have to Google - basically I just need to dump a few scripts in and sed a couple of files :)

[12:45] <fqtw> i downloaded the latest raspian jessie lite, it was in UK kbd layout for some reason, i used raspi-config to change it to US layout but afterwards it was still in UK layout. why?
[12:45] <shiftplusone> BurtyB: that's not a good idea, but sometimes there's no pretty way of doing things.

[13:56] <zZap-X> what is the best way to keep date/time on a rpi3?

[13:56] <gordonDrogon> connect it to the internet.
[13:56] <zZap-X> or use a crontab
[13:56] <gordonDrogon> it will use ntpd automatically.
[13:56] <gordonDrogon> assuming you're running raspbian.
[13:57] <zZap-X> trouble is if i use ntpd on its own, the date is incorrect
[13:57] <zZap-X> however if i boot with
[13:57] <zZap-X> ntpdate 0.pool.ntp.org > /dev/null 2>&1
[13:57] <gordonDrogon> then something is not setup correclt.y
[13:57] <zZap-X> it works but ntpdate cannot be run at the same time as ntpd

[13:58] <zZap-X> gordonDrogon: so something in /etc/ntpd.conf needs changing?
[13:58] <gordonDrogon> as soon as ntp starts it ought to set the date/time correctly - assuming you're connected to the internet.
[13:58] <zZap-X> ok need to check settings
[13:58] <gordonDrogon> I've never had to touch anything on a Pi in the past 5 years to make it work.
[13:58] <Habbie> ntpd sets the time within 5 seconds of bootup for me
[13:59] <brainzap> ntpd uses UDP port 123
[13:59] <Habbie> gordonDrogon, no ntpdate on mine
[13:59] <gordonDrogon> as does ntpdate - if ntpdate works, then so should ntpd.

[14:00] <gordonDrogon> in the olden days, ntp could not slew or step the time if it was more than a certian time out, that was the job of ntpdate, so you'd run ntpdate at boot time, then run ntp.

[14:10] <GreeningGalaxy> I've toyed with the idea of making a cheapo hwclock by adding some contacts to a wall clock that close every 12 hours, and then setting up a script in the pi that says "every time this GPIO is pulled low, if you're not at 12:00, go there"
[14:10] <GreeningGalaxy> and then using fake-hwclock to fill in the rest, obviously
[14:11] <gordonDrogon> fake sets the time from the time of shutdown.

[14:15] <GreeningGalaxy> Are you sure your SD is not set read-only?
[14:17] <Habbie> i found fake-hwclock quite useful on reboots and not great on day long shutdowns
[14:17] <lastaid> just checked fstab
[14:17] <lastaid> options are defaults, noatime
[14:18] <gordonDrogon> lastaid, what settings are you changing?
[14:18] <lastaid> i am writing a project into my home folder

[14:19] <lastaid> but i will check for mountpoints, hangon
[14:19] <gordonDrogon> well - it's not normal. not to be expected at all.
[14:19] <gordonDrogon> what are you using to write the 'project' (whatever that is?)
[14:20] <lastaid> its a nodejs application
[14:20] <lastaid> i use winscp
[14:20] <lastaid> and actually scp, not ftp
[14:20] <gordonDrogon> ok, you scp from a Win PC?
[14:20] <lastaid> yes
[14:20] <gordonDrogon> can you ssh onto the Pi and check it's there before you reboot?
[14:20] <lastaid> yes
[14:21] <gordonDrogon> well that's realyl weird.
[14:21] <lastaid> i know
[14:21] <GreeningGalaxy> uh.. check df and make sure none of those directories is secretly a ramfs?
[14:21] <lastaid> apparently we had a short power failure at work, and now the data is gone, which was weird, so i just copied something on there, ran it and then rebooted

[14:23] <Habbie> when you say 'reboot', this is a normal reboot? or do you pull the power out?
[14:23] <GreeningGalaxy> try sshing in and running `sync' before rebooting?
[14:24] <lastaid> well i guess the failure over the weekend was a power outage, but i was unable to rec4reate the bug using sudo reboot
[14:24] <GreeningGalaxy> aha
[14:24] <lastaid> i mean
[14:24] <lastaid> i was able to recreate the bug
[14:24] <lastaid> trying a second pi now
[14:25] <GreeningGalaxy> with sudo reboot? or just by pulling the plug?
[14:25] <lastaid> sudo reboot
[14:25] <GreeningGalaxy> pulling the plug isn't recommended, as the pi might not be done with pending cached writes and data might be lost

[14:42] <Capi_di_capo> hey guys i want to play around with raspberry pi zero with infrared break beam, if i get a breadboard what kind of cabling would i need?

[14:43] <GreeningGalaxy> you could power it all by the pi, yeah. If you just want to assemble it on a solderless breadboard, all you need is some pin-pin jumpers.

[14:53] * SopaXorzTaker (~SopaXorzT@unaffiliated/sopaxorztaker) has joined #raspberrypi
[14:54] <GreeningGalaxy> anyway, if you're going to use a laser for this, you should use a visible one. If you get too much noise from ambient light, you can flash the laser very fast and add a band-pass filter to the receiver, which should work fairly well.
[14:55] <willmore> GreeningGalaxy, say 38KHz and then use readily available IR remote receivers which have the filter built in?
[14:55] <GreeningGalaxy> sure
[14:56] <GreeningGalaxy> I've never actually done this, but I'm pretty sure it's already a widely-used strategy for stuff like remotes and automatic doors that have to deal with ambient light a lot
[14:56] <willmore> It is.
[14:58] <willmore> I've done voice over IR. I'm not sure you can do it on an rpi as you need phase correct PWM. I don't know if the rpi can do that.

[15:22] <willmore> The ODROID folks seem to really love theirs. But, they use really good ones.
[15:22] <GreeningGalaxy> Orange Pi PC2 has a weird layout
[15:23] <willmore> GreeningGalaxy, you mean the slightly rotated CPU/DRAM?
[15:23] <GreeningGalaxy> that and the USB ports
[15:24] <willmore> You mean the 2+1 layout?
[15:24] <lastaid> rotated cpu+dram probably to match the vias?
[15:24] <willmore> lastaid, the SoC/DRAM layout can't be fiddled with due to trace length issues, so they rotated the whole thing to fit it on the board.
[15:25] <willmore> It does look a little funny, but if you've ever laid out a board you'll just nod and say 'whatever it takes to make it all fit'.
[15:25] <lastaid> we are talking about the orange pi, right?
[15:26] <GreeningGalaxy> fair enough
[15:26] <willmore> lastaid, yes, specifically the PC 2.
[15:26] <GreeningGalaxy> I've only built prototypes on perf so far, and there's not really any provision for non-orthogonal placement there

I'll counter it with the kernels that Hard Kernel provides. They have crusty old vendor provided kernels, but they maintain them with security patches and they're paying to have mainline support developed.

[15:46] <willmore> GreeningGalaxy, Oh, that would be the FEL key. The built in ROM (BROM) of the Allwinner chips has a provision to boot over USB. If your eMMC is hosed, you can FEL boot the board by teathering it to a PC and feeding it code that way.
[15:47] <GreeningGalaxy> isn't that the "Recovery key"? I'm talking about the "upgrade key"
[15:47] <willmore> lastaid, you mean the 45 degree rotated processor? Yep, that's a trace routing issue. It's a common thing to do for high speed signal lines. All of the lines for the DRAM are on that quadrant of the SoC nearest the memory.

[15:51] <willmore> lastaid, as mfa298 points out, many of these boards are slapped together for very little cost. They tend to borrow very heavily on the vendor provided designs--both in hardware and in software. Customizations cost money and time.

[16:03] <willmore> GreeningGalaxy, from what I can understand from talking to people and from reading the orange pi forum, it looks like it signals the uboot bootloader on the eMMC to put expose the eMMC as a mass storage drive over the USB port to a PC.

[16:05] <GreeningGalaxy> nice, I was worried it was going to be some premium codec crap or something
[16:05] <willmore> The recovery key is to enter FEL mode. That lets a PC hooked to the board on the OTG port do lots of low level fiddling with the board (including loading software) but it uses an Allwinner specific protocol.
[16:06] <willmore> The upgrade key (when you reboot the machine) tells the bootloader to not boot but to put go into 'act like a flash drive' mode. That way a PC without the Allwinner specific FEL software can load software onto the eMMC.

[16:20] <GreeningGalaxy> sometimes, weirdly enough, I've actually had loading animations (e.g. the chrome tab loading wheel) keep running when that happens, but the mouse is still frozen, ACT is still stopped, and it doesn't respond to any keyboard input

[16:32] <yumbox> and I also figured out that to set the ip on the rpi, you need to append `ip=x.x.x.x` to /boot/cmdline.txt
[16:32] <jubalh> would have prefered that though
[16:32] <yumbox> oq: yes
[16:32] <scottjl> maybe, search amazon i guess. but i ordered mine from aliexpress. their prices tend to be better than amazon

[17:19] <oq> it *should* auto sync when it boots

[17:22] <ali1234> no, i think ntpd is just broken
[17:22] <Hanonim> oq: i know... but openjdk seems to be an order of magnitude slower than oracle jdk, at least in "old" benchmarks
[17:22] <gordonDrogon> how can it just break? it's nearly 30 years old...
[17:23] <ali1234> it isnt designed to be used on systems with no rtc
[17:23] <Habbie> Trel, what do you want checked? i'm on a 2 here but just ask your question
[17:23] <ali1234> i think the actual reason why it doesn't work is because it has no mechanism to wait for an internet connection at startup
[17:24] <ali1234> so you have a race condition between the network coming up and ntpd starting
[17:24] <gordonDrogon> ali1234, the -g option was designed for that case.
[17:24] <Habbie> ali1234, both ntpd -g and timesyncd work for me without trouble
[17:24] <willmore> zZap-X, yes, that's how you do it. ntpdate gets you close and ntpd keeps you on track.

[17:25] <Hanonim> is anyone running java on the rpi?
[17:26] <willmore> Which will fail if it's been off for over 24 hours as ntpd will refuse to update the clock if it's that far off.

[17:50] <Chillum> I have an A, and B, a B+ an 2B
[17:50] <Qatz> Well that's good
[17:50] <Chillum> one 3
[17:50] <gordonDrogon> Qatz, it's the same as the Pi v3 - it uses an sdio port on the SoC.
[17:50] <Qatz> Nice
[17:51] <zer0her0> have they discontinued the A series w/ the zero? just realized I haven't seen any A's in a while
[17:51] <zZap-X> the thing i dislike about the pizero is that there is always soldering involved
[17:51] * gordonDrogon looks at 2 x A+ Pi's and an old A on his desk ... )-:
[17:51] <zer0her0> good learning experience, keep those lazy kids learning ;)
[17:51] <shauno> the thing I like about the zero is that there's always soldering involved ;)
[17:51] <zZap-X> haha
[17:51] <Chillum> I can use the onboard wifi for signal strength measurements, a wifi dongle for active extraction of wpa handshakes, and a gpio serial GPS module for mapping
[17:51] <oq> zer0her0: some of us have been hoping for a pi3a for a while now...
[17:51] <zZap-X> its ok if you can solder
[17:52] <Chillum> pin header is really easy to solder
[17:52] <zZap-X> not if your me
[17:52] <gordonDrogon> there is a "hammer" header for them now though ...
[17:52] <zZap-X> the pin header should be slot on without soldering
[17:52] <zer0her0> what does the A offer that the zero doesn't? (haven't really done a feature comparison lately)
[17:52] <Chillum> nope
[17:52] <Chillum> by not soldering something on it gives builders more options
[17:52] <gordonDrogon> you gently tap the headers in with a hammer ...
[17:52] <zZap-X> aye true
[17:53] <gordonDrogon> zer0her0, on-board audio + compost video output
[17:53] <oq> doesn't the pi0 have composite video via some of the gpio pins
[17:53] <Chillum> I spent so long lamenting about boards that did not come with pin header, but when I actually tried to solder them I got it right away
[17:53] <Chillum> I just watched a few youtube videos on it first
[17:53] <shauno> and a full 'hat' footprint
[17:53] <gordonDrogon> zer0her0, DSI port too.
[17:53] <zer0her0> and why would you want an A and not a B?
[17:53] <gordonDrogon> zer0her0, price.
[17:53] <oq> zer0her0: it was slightly cheaper, slightly smaller
[17:54] <zer0her0> gotcha.
[17:54] <Chillum> I love how the zero has a flat bottom. It means you can glue another flat bottomed board to the bottom and attach to GPIOs making for a tiny project
[17:54] <zer0her0> thanks for educating me :)
[17:54] <gordonDrogon> aaaaannnnddddd.... it's a bit of a nod to the old BBC Micro - Model B and A ... the A was slightly lesser features, but cheaper.
[17:54] <Chillum> I wish the other pis came without header installed
[17:54] <Chillum> it is such a pain to remove
[17:54] <shauno> I think the main benefit of the A now is continuity. for some uses it's nice to have a target that doesn't move every few months
[17:55] <zer0her0> ah right right, being an american that grew up in "IBM valley" during the 80-90s we didn't see ANY BBC Micros and very few Apples
[17:56] <oq> zer0her0: no spectrums either?
[17:56] <zZap-X> how about c64
[17:56] <gordonDrogon> Spectrum -> Timex in the US, I think.
[17:56] <gordonDrogon> although I think the C64, etc. were much more popular.
[17:56] <zer0her0> yea never saw a timex, and only seen the spectrum via the internet years later
[17:57] <gordonDrogon> I had access to an Apple II in 78... the rest, as they say, is history :-)
[17:57] <shauno> you didn't miss much. I absolutely hated the spectrum lol
[17:57] <zer0her0> I think the C64 was a bit before my time. and only new of Amiga's through the handful of magazines for them in the local book shop
[17:57] <zZap-X> rubber keys and a horrible video chip
[17:57] <zZap-X> lol
[17:57] <zer0her0> s/new/knew/
[17:57] <gordonDrogon> zZap-X, but for the time and the price ...
[17:57] <zZap-X> c64 was way ahead of its time
[17:58] <gordonDrogon> the c64 was just a PET with colour...
[17:58] <shauno> yeah. that keyboard brings back nightmares. and the idea of each key being a macro, or something (?), drove me nuts
[17:58] <zZap-X> gordonDrogon: the c64 was a enhanced version of the vic20
[17:58] <gordonDrogon> all based on the PET though.
[17:58] <zZap-X> aye
[17:59] <gordonDrogon> I did use a PET once - an early one with the 'calculator' keyboard.
[17:59] <gordonDrogon> who'd have though that type of keys would come back into fashion ...
[17:59] <gordonDrogon> although they space them out a bit more these days ...

[18:10] <Simonious> oq: I may have done some ssh setup at one point last week or two weeks ago, I'm not sure.. I don't remember doing that and I've been sshing in. Does that mean I'm fine, or should I still do this?

[18:13] * GreeningGalaxy (~ellie@ has joined #raspberrypi
[18:13] <Simonious> oh here is a question.. I've got raspis, BBGs and BBBs.. like them all, might even prefer the BBB/BBG IF it had 4x USB ports like the raspi. anyway the question is this:
[18:14] * CompanionCube (samis@unaffiliated/drmushroom) has joined #raspberrypi
[18:14] <Simonious> A friend of mine is convinced that BB* is more reliable than the Raspi.. He claims his reading on the internet has led him to believe it's a less crashy device - thoughts on the accuracy of this belief?
[18:14] <oq> bbb = beaglebone?
[18:14] <Gadgetoid_Pim> Dubious at best, did he source his information from 2012?
[18:15] <methuzla> oq: yes. b = black. g = green.
[18:15] <Gadgetoid_Pim> The Pi seems to have a lot of buzz about corrupt SD cards, but frankly I've never seen anything to suggest the problem is anywhere near as bad as the internet would have you believe
[18:15] <oq> the pis in one way are more.. fragile.. the sd card
[18:16] <oq> nand is better than sd imo
[18:16] <YuGiOhJCJ> Simonious, I think crashes depend more on the operating system used than the hardware
[18:16] <Gadgetoid_Pim> oq, I don't understand why people say that
[18:16] <Simonious> YuGiOhJCJ: I tend to think that's the thing too
[18:16] <Simonious> oq: Yes, beaglebone
[18:16] <Gadgetoid_Pim> I've used dozens upon dozens of Pi's for timescales stretching from hours to years and had very, very few corrupt SD cards
[18:16] <Gadgetoid_Pim> Even over multiple brownouts, hard powering off, etc
[18:17] <Simonious> I actually only run my BB* on SDcards, because if/when they go bad I can just swap
[18:17] <Simonious> if the internal fails, it's gone, so I use it ONLY as a kind of recovery OS
[18:17] <Gadgetoid_Pim> I like the BeagleBone Black, though
[18:17] <Simonious> Gadgetoid_Pim: what is the secret to not corrupting SDcards? I HAVE corrupted several on both BB* and Pi

[18:19] <Simonious> and.. I've got a BBB on my desk running headless (I know, should use the BBG), and it's been running over 100 days
[18:19] <YuGiOhJCJ> BBB means Raspberry Pi 3 model B?
[18:19] <Gadgetoid_Pim> We have Pi's running out shop postroom, being turned on and off 5 days a week, running from SD cards... no problems
[18:19] <Simonious> in fact. I keep a screen session running there so I can connect to it from wherever - and I'm chatting to you on that session right now
[18:19] <Gadgetoid_Pim> It must be a mix of really heavy IO and power failure, perhaps?

[20:04] <Habbie> as i didn't use the framebuffer ;)
[20:06] <BetaSoul> Okay, now I'm just confused.
[20:06] <EDinNY> Simonious, have you solved that problem with Screen? If you google "install screen raspberry pi errors", you will find other people had issues. I did not read enough articles to see if they solved it.
[20:07] <dreamon> oq, That works!! Thanks
[20:08] <BetaSoul> I've treid with and without encryption, eveyrthing I can think of. I can connect via a REALVNC client, but I can't trust that I'll always have said client.

[21:47] <zZap-X> one of the reasons why i like the rpi3 is that it uses real ethernet port, not something is connected to usb bus
[21:47] <redrabbit> zZap-X: didn't knew that
[21:47] <phil42> neither did i
[21:47] <redrabbit> wondering what the opi0 does for that
[21:47] <oq> zZap-X: wot
[21:48] <mfa298> zZap-X: the wired ethernet on all the B models is still via usb
[21:48] <redrabbit> i get full throughput from the lan
[21:48] <zZap-X> i think some of these small boards have pretend ethernet ports what use usb bandwidth
[21:48] <redrabbit> as long as i dont write to the card
[21:48] <redrabbit> 100mbps effectively
[21:48] <redrabbit> (same on the opi)

[21:49] <Habbie> zZap-X, so does the pi3
[21:50] <redrabbit> i use wget and theses files http://ping.online.net/ but a local server would be better if you dont have 100mbps internet
[21:50] <redrabbit> this is confusing *-*
[21:50] <redrabbit> so usb ethernet or not ?
[21:51] <Habbie> all pi models that have an ethernet port
[21:51] <Habbie> have usb ethernet
[21:51] <mfa298> redrabbit: all the Pi B models have ethernet via the USB bus
[21:51] <zZap-X> eek :/
[21:51] <Habbie> why eek?
[21:51] <zZap-X> i guess it doesnt matter
[21:51] <Habbie> i haven't found it to be a bottleneck for me
[21:51] <Habbie> it can matter but it usually does not
[21:51] <zZap-X> yeah true
[21:51] <redrabbit> i'm fine with it as well
[21:51] <zZap-X> mine seems ok
[21:51] <Habbie> nfs over usb ethernet beats the SD for small file access
[21:52] <redrabbit> no doubt
[21:52] <redrabbit> i only get 1/3 of the lan speed for write
[21:52] <Habbie> linear write is okay on my SD
[21:52] <mfa298> the only network on certain pis that isn't over USB is the wifi on the PI3 and Zero-W, which is over SDIO which limits it to around 40mbps
[21:52] <Habbie> but random is not
[21:52] <redrabbit> for read it should be fair
[21:53] <Habbie> mfa298, theoretically somebody could connect an ethernet port to something other than USB but it would never be better :)
[21:53] <redrabbit> its probably not gonna hit 40mbps anyway
[21:53] <Habbie> i have found pi3 wifi to be fast enough that i didn't notice trouble
[21:54] <Habbie> using it as an AP for my mac
[21:54] <mfa298> I think I got the 40mbps that with an iperf test over wifi
[21:54] <oq> the problem with wifi is.. one slow device slows down the rest of the network
[21:54] <redrabbit> should be sweet with the new zero
[21:54] <mfa298> most people probably don't use most of the wifi bandwidth anyway.
[21:55] <redrabbit> gonna be able to fit a device of chaos in the tinyest form factor
[21:55] <mfa298> I rarely notice an issue with wifi speed and I'm still running a a/g AP mostly (going for stability over speed)
[21:55] <Habbie> redrabbit, yes, i bet this will hit the 8266 a bit in the maker market

[22:27] <redrabbit> there's the ZERO W as well
[22:28] <redrabbit> got out today
[22:28] <atomi> well yeah but armv6l is not going to last long
[22:28] <atomi> I give it a year before a lot of software starts deprecating support
[22:28] <oq> atomi: good thing everything is recompiled for raspbian then
[22:29] <redrabbit> im not that worried about that
[22:29] <redrabbit> i just use them today and its good
[22:29] <atomi> at least the orange pi zero is armv7l
[22:29] <mfa298> atomi: is that real PoE on the opi, i.e. If I connect it to my PoE switch pushing out 48V it'll work ?
[22:29] <atomi> and a lot of the tools I use are golang which I know won't be compiling on armv6l after 1.9
[22:30] <redrabbit> i have the orange pi zero and im waiting for two other zeros + a orange pi one
[22:30] <atomi> mfa298, it's actually passive POE, you'll need to drop it somehow to 5v
[22:30] <redrabbit> and a raspberry zero W as wel
[22:30] <mfa298> atomi: hmmm, I just saw "which means it is not compliant with the PoE and PoE+ standards. PoE switches do not negotiate the output voltage" as well

[22:32] <oq> think the pi4 is a ways out
[22:32] <mfa298> atomi: 2018 is earliest for Pi4
[22:32] <oq> they'd probably need to ditch the usb for power
[22:32] <atomi> yeah
[22:32] <mfa298> there's a sticky on the forums stating that

[22:33] <Habbie> oq, we're not really in milliamp territory anymore i'd say
[22:34] <oq> Habbie: just judging by previous releases
[22:34] <Habbie> atomi, as for deprecating support, i bet raspbian will support it for a long time

[23:28] <nmeum_> I want to debug the bootup of my kernel by connecting the raspberrypi to my computer using a serial. However, I don't see any early kernel message on the serial interface.

[23:29] <nmschulte> swift110: I installed vlc from the apt repository; # aptitude install vlc
[23:29] <Simonious> nmeum: which raspi? if you've got one with an HDMI port that should all be visible there.
[23:30] <swift110> nmschulte, does it work with videos
[23:30] <nmschulte> That is a good question; I didn't run it, so I don't know. I assume as much, though.
[23:30] <nmeum> Simonious: rpi2. I don't want to use the HDMI port. That output should be visible on the serial interface as well, shouldn't it?
[23:30] <Simonious> yes, it should.
[23:30] <nmschulte> If you can tell me how to connect to the VNC server, swift110, I could test and let you know.
[23:30] <Simonious> nmeum: is it visible on the hdmi?

[23:30] <swift110> nmschulte, I have never used vnc before so I am not much help there
[23:31] <nmeum> Simonious: yes
[23:31] <nmeum> that's whats so strange about it
[23:32] * mgottschlag (~quassel@reactos/tester/phoenix64) Quit (Ping timeout: 264 seconds)
[23:33] <nmeum> I also tried to use u-boot to see if it is able to write to the serial console but u-boot doesn't write anything to the serial interface at all either
[23:34] * gugah (~gugah@ Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[23:34] <Simonious> nmeum: that *is* a puzzle, I don't have time to confirm/test at the moment, but I think I've logged in over serial before
[23:34] <Simonious> nmeum: conspy isn't going to help you here either, right? Because it's early boot stuff you are after?
[23:34] * Voop (~bob@c-73-10-57-92.hsd1.nj.comcast.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[23:35] <Voop> just heard about the new zero
[23:35] * eblip (~eblip@unaffiliated/eblip) Quit (Quit: WeeChat 1.4)
[23:35] <nmeum> Simonious: yeah, conspy won't help
[23:35] <Simonious> Voop: yeah? same as the old one except with bluetooth wifi sprinkled on top. I've got an old one in front of me.
[23:36] <Simonious> honestly never powered it up... :/
[23:36] <Simonious> can I run linux on the zero?
[23:37] <Simonious> oh duh, yes
[23:37] <bantone> how much are the new zeros?
[23:38] <Voop> pixel runs like crap on it
[23:38] <Voop> $10
[23:38] <Simonious> well networking is a noteworthy missing part on the zero
[23:38] <Voop> its exactly the same they just added the boadcomm wifi / bluetooth hardware the pi3 has
[23:38] <Voop> nothing else was changed
[23:38] * eblip (~eblip@unaffiliated/eblip) has joined #raspberrypi
[23:38] <bantone> ah i see
[23:38] * [Butch] (~butch@node-0011.srv.us-west.phantom.avira-vpn.net) Quit (Quit: I'm out . . .)
[23:38] <Voop> Simonious: dont even bother with chrominium on the zero
[23:39] * Simonious chuckles
[23:39] <Voop> older versions of jessie run fine on it
[23:39] <bantone> think my next pi project will be a 6 node cluster
[23:39] <Simonious> I'm tempted to put rasbian-lite on it
[23:39] <Simonious> and just use it for a handy shell
[23:39] <Voop> that would run fine
[23:39] <Simonious> which is what I'm doing now on a beagleboneblack
[23:39] <Voop> its 1ghz, 512mb ram
[23:40] <Voop> nothing to complain about
[23:40] * g105b (uid148156@gateway/web/irccloud.com/x-nzreklseinfidkbe) has joined #raspberrypi
[23:40] <Simonious> this chat session is on a perpetual screen session on the BBB
[23:40] <Simonious> I'm connected to it from three different machines right now
[23:41] <Voop> i use my zero for irc sometimes. its got a 2G modem hooked up
[23:41] * Simonious nods
[23:41] <Simonious> exactly
[23:41] <Voop> which is enough for irc and....
[23:41] <Voop> irc works on it
[23:41] <Voop> yeah
[23:41] <Simonious> is 2G free?
[23:41] <HrdwrBoB> Simonious: ...
[23:41] <Voop> its like $4/month for 100mb data
[23:41] <HrdwrBoB> nothing is free
[23:41] <Voop> from tmobile
[23:41] * Simonious nods
[23:41] <Chillum> 2G is a wireless data transfer protocol
[23:42] <Voop> there used to be ways to get free 2G
[23:42] <Voop> not sure if its still possible
[23:42] <Chillum> oh I see

[23:42] <Voop> hi Chillum
[23:42] <Chillum> hi
[23:43] <Voop> i use an adafruit FONA
[23:43] <Voop> they make a 3G one but its bigger and costlier
[23:43] <Simonious> http://hackaday.com/2017/02/28/10-raspberry-pi-zero-w-the-w-means-wifi-bluetooth/ for those that haven't seen it
[23:44] <Voop> its not too exciting to look at heh
[23:44] <Voop> less a 'new pi' (what the article i read called it) and more a 'zero 2.0'
[23:45] * webturtle0 (~webturtle@ has joined #raspberrypi
[23:45] <Chillum> based on the prior naming conventions it should be called the Zero 2B+ or something absurd like that
[23:45] <shauno> pretty much as it describes itself. zero+wifi.
[23:47] <swift110> hmm
[23:48] <oq> zero 1.2, zero 1.3, zero w?

[23:50] <mfa298> does that mean there'll be a buggy variation called 'zero me' next
[23:50] <oq> zero millenium edition?

[23:59] <Chillum> that would be century addition
[23:59] <Chillum> more like 984 years
[23:59] <Chillum> edition that is
