[4:38] <on3pk> Good evening. I have a Pi-Fan as available on Adafruit. Has anyone done a tear down? It seems like it already has resistors and diodes built in. Is that actually the case?
[4:41] <ali1234> its a 5V fan
[4:42] <ali1234> there's nothing unusual inside it

[4:48] <on3pk> oh, then I guess I'm wondering why when I stick a resistor in front of it, current draw fals in half...

[5:04] <on3pk> ah, good point. Question then is, is it worth putting a resistor on the motor circuit if it has inherent resistance?

[5:11] * genericuser123 (~enter@ has joined #raspberrypi
[5:12] <ali1234> if you limit the motor current you risk stalling

[9:28] <gordonDrogon> I have in the past charged people to solder headers on though. $5 is cheap.
[9:28] <r0n0x> 2 minutes and 2 cents in parts is all it takes
[9:29] <gordonDrogon> plus the ability to solder - which is lacking in a great number of people.

[9:31] <r0n0x> fortunately though unlike when the zero came out, or the zero W, there wont be any shortage
[9:31] <r0n0x> distributors can just charge extra and solder it themselves
[9:31] <shauno> I mean, I'm in the same position. I'd rather they made headers optional on the pi3 instead. but the #1 feedback on the AIY vision kit was that people were expecting plug'n'play, and didn't realise they had to tack a header on the W, so I can see why they've done it
[9:31] <gordonDrogon> I don't think they will.
[9:31] <gordonDrogon> (solder it themselves).
[9:31] <gordonDrogon> that takes time and effort.
[9:32] <r0n0x> plus its literally double price for the soldered as unsoldered
[9:32] <r0n0x> i did it in 2 minutes at my desk with my shitty little USB soldering iron
[9:32] <gordonDrogon> that's because it takes someone time to unload from the flow soldered and into the wave solderer.

[9:33] <shauno> yes, it's doubled from £9.60 to £13.25. and you were just complaining about opensource.com's hyperbole

[12:01] <Gathis> yep, Hermes suck, and that same company has renamed itself several times because people soon learn how much they suck
[12:02] * BurtyB used to use hermes to send stuff out and that was bad too (missed pickups for days and drop off points being "closed") :(
[12:02] <benoliver999> Hermes are the absolute worst, for business, for drivers & for customers.
[12:02] <gordonDrogon> the local bit of Hermes is good here - the woman who does it works hard - it just seems to be the back-haul, as it were.
[12:03] <Gathis> (sh)CityLink were bad too, went out of biz i see on wiki
[12:03] <benoliver999> That's the worst part. Most courier companies are made of people who take their job very seriously, especially behind the scenes. The shitty system and cost cutting fucks them all over
[12:04] <gordonDrogon> I need to get power into a box. seems easy. in the old days I'd just buy 3.5mm line plugs and panel sockets.
[12:04] <gordonDrogon> benoliver999, try to keep it family friendly please.
[12:05] <benoliver999> Ooh sorry.
[12:05] <Gathis> earlier re arduino 'better'. if some arduino or cheap chinese clone can do a job the same as a RPi then it perhaps is 'better' on cost, but learning how to do the same thing ALSO with a RPi is good too. I want to drive some WS2812 LEDs, and probably an arduino nano is better for that.. but i'd like to control the nano from an RPi
[12:05] <Gadgetoid_Pim> The best way to drive WS2812 LEDs is to buy APA102s instead ;D
[12:06] <gordonDrogon> ^^^
[12:06] <Gathis> ah dotstar leds, yes i know quicker, but last time i looked more costly

[12:06] <gordonDrogon> price will come down this year though.
[12:06] <Gadgetoid_Pim> I like that I can drive an APA102 through an IO buffer while also reading buttons, they're so much less hassle
[12:06] <Gathis> i don't need speed for most of what i'd like to mess with
[12:06] <gordonDrogon> (my prediction for 2018 :)
[12:07] <Gathis> ok gordonDrogon .. i hope so :)
[12:07] <Gadgetoid_Pim> Most of my problem with the WS2812s is the horrible protocol and specific timing requirements
[12:08] <Gathis> yeh, but i like that kind of 'fun' and i've got an ancient 'telequipment' oscilloscope which still works
[12:08] <gordonDrogon> the timing thing isn't that strict if you understand what the chips actually need and how they work, and there are some good published articles on it, however I'e just not had to time or energy to finish off my Pi stuff for them.
[12:08] <Gadgetoid_Pim> Specially when you play a bit fast and loose with it, bake your finished code into firmware, and then find a batch of WS2812s it wont work with :D
[12:09] <Gadgetoid_Pim> Although to be fair we had the same issue with APA102s having slight variations on the protocol *facepalm*
[12:09] <gordonDrogon> the arduino vs. Pi thing - there isn't that much in it, price wise now - especially if you compare like for like (ie. add wi-fi!) but arduino - ready to go in 1ms and no issues pulling the plug ...
[12:10] <Gathis> i'm not sure of the APA102s signalling, I2C sort of thing?
[12:10] <gordonDrogon> it's bit-serial, but the timing isn't critical.
[12:10] <Gathis> i looked in detail at ws2812, simple serial load
[12:10] * BurtyB gets more problems with them when I don't bake them first :(
[12:10] <Gadgetoid_Pim> True, that, BurtyB
[12:10] <Gadgetoid_Pim> We learned that the hard way
[12:11] <Gathis> bake as in dry? or .. just joking ? :)

[14:02] <fykyy> rpm-update a tool which should update the firmware easily
[14:02] <fykyy> the fact is that now my rip boots but usb ports and ethernet are not working
[14:02] <gordonDrogon> rpm? you're not running Raspbian then?
[14:03] <gordonDrogon> or did you really mean rpi-update ?
[14:03] <fykyy> during the boot sequence : VC_vchi_sm_init failed to open VCHI service (-1)
[14:03] <fykyy> FAILED to start Load Kernel Modules
[14:03] <gordonDrogon> ok, but rpi or rpm ?
[14:03] <fykyy> rpi
[14:03] <fykyy> sry
[14:03] <gordonDrogon> ok.
[14:04] <gordonDrogon> rpi-update is used as a development tool to help the kernel developers test new/bleeding edge kernels.
[14:04] <fykyy> I trier to write the start.elf from the GitHub of rpm update but same result
[14:04] <gordonDrogon> it's not really intended for daily use.
[14:04] <gordonDrogon> 99.999999% of people do not need to use it.
[14:04] <fykyy> yep I know it now
[14:05] <gordonDrogon> so re-flash the SD card with the latest Raspbian, then run the usual: apt-get update ; apt-get upgrade
[14:05] <gordonDrogon> and be happy.
[14:05] <fykyy> I think I have to do a fresh install on my sd card but i will lose all my configurations
[14:05] <fykyy> yep

[17:08] <Gathis> hm, DS18B20 isn't very low power, 3V min, and 1mA typical draw
[17:09] <mfa298> if you're pairing it with a Pi then the 1mA probably isn't an issue :p
[17:09] <Gathis> ah, has standby @ .75 to 1 uA
[17:09] <Gathis> nope mfa298, not directly, but yes via a radio link
[17:11] <Gathis> i need to do plenty research yet it seems, i was just being lazy and hoping someone had some ideas or already worked out examples :)
[17:11] <Gathis> it'll be the RF part which will really cost
[17:12] <Habbie> so what problem are you solving exactly, gathis?
[17:13] * uppercase (~textual@ Quit (Quit: My MacBook has gone to sleep. ZZZzzz…)
[17:14] <Gathis> i want several remote temperature sensors to monitor remote temperatures around the house, workshop and garden all sending data via low power/bandwidth RF to a RPi to log the readings
[17:15] <Habbie> instead of bothering with ds18b20 or similar you could consider buying normal weather station transmitters
[17:15] <Gathis> oregon scientific and other weather stations have such remote temp sensors typically running on 2 AA batteries for months
[17:15] <Habbie> exactly
[17:15] <mfa298> you can do some fairly low power depening on how often you need the information
[17:15] <Gathis> yeh, they're expensive, and tough to use, not well documented, and limited number of channels
[17:16] <Habbie> are channels a problem?
[17:16] <akk> How hard is it to receive from those oregon scientific sensors if you want to do your own processing?
[17:16] <Habbie> they're not transmitting all the time
[17:16] <Gathis> i want at least 6
[17:16] <mfa298> I know someone made a sensor node for https://ukhas.net/ that ran for several months on a AA battery (or two) - I think that was based on an AVR (with lots of sleep settings)
[17:16] <Habbie> akk, https://github.com/merbanan/rtl_433 does it with no trouble
[17:16] <Gathis> akk good question. i've tried looking for info, it's not easy to find
[17:16] <Habbie> akk, with my EUR 25 SDR USB stick but i hear a 5 EUR one will do as well
[17:17] * NightMonkey (~NightMonk@pdpc/supporter/professional/nightmonkey) Quit (Ping timeout: 265 seconds)
[17:17] <Gathis> Habbie, yes, they transmit i think once per minute, but the ones i've seen in the past only had 3 channel selections
[17:18] <Habbie> Gathis, hmm perhaps they were not 433mhz then
[17:18] <akk> Neat, Habbie, I might try that myself.
[17:18] <Habbie> Gathis, in 433 they just include some device ID i think
[17:18] <Habbie> now i wonder how cheap one can buy 433mhz transmitters
[17:18] <Gathis> yes they were 433mhz, it's just their limited consumer design
[17:18] <Habbie> well, 433mhz does not have channels
[17:18] <Habbie> so maybe they were IDs
[17:19] <Habbie> but that would still be problematic
[17:19] <mfa298> depends on the quality of 433/434MHz device you want, there's some really cheap modules which are around $1 for a rx/tx pair
[17:19] <Habbie> i had some fun with rx2/tx2 chips this week
[17:19] <Habbie> on 27mhz
[17:19] <Gathis> would be then i expect, i don't know/
[17:19] <mfa298> or go up market a bit and get something like the RFM69 for a few more $$ (maybe $4 - been a while since i got any)
[17:20] <Gathis> i have an old knackered oregon transmitter somewhere around
[17:20] <Gathis> ok mfa298, will look thnx
[17:20] <mfa298> a lot of stuff is just OOK based around 433.92, although there's a bunch of other ISM frequencies around there you can use in EU
[17:21] <Habbie> rfm69 looks like fun
[17:21] <Gathis> UK here
[17:21] <mfa298> Gathis: if you want to DIY it all have a look through the https://ukhas.net/ stuff
[17:22] * mfa298 should probably fix some of what's broken on that site - although that means remembering perl again ...
[17:22] <Gathis> thnx mfa298, diy isn't a problem, made my own SMT pcb's before, just never more than double-sided stuff

[18:09] <mfa298> Goldi22: For Pi2/Pi3 that's normal, you should see the green led blink quickly 10 times when it's shutdown.
[18:10] <mfa298> the red led is just showing there's power applied to the board (which it still is, even with the CPU halted as happend when you shut it down)
[18:11] <Goldi22> mfa298 that doesnt happen
[18:12] <Goldi22> I mean it does - the red light. So it means its completely turned off?
[18:13] <Goldi22> there is no way that some hacker could turn it on from this state?
[18:13] <mfa298> if you see the green led blink quickly like that (assumning your looking for it) then it's shutdown. There's still power to the board but everything is stopped at that point

[18:17] <akk> My pi3 doesn't do that series of fast blinks just before shutdown like my pi0 does.
[18:18] <akk> And when it's up and running, the red light looks just the same as the red light when it's shut down. So you really can't tell much from the lights.
[18:18] <Goldi22> so when its with red light on, can someone somehow turn it on remotely?
[18:18] * puzzola (~puzzola@unaffiliated/puzzola) has joined #raspberrypi
[18:19] <mfa298> the red led on the Pi2/Pi3 just shows you have a good power supply (i.e. if it blinks off you dont have a good supply) it doesn't tell you anything else

[18:21] <Goldi22> on the power wire
[18:21] <Goldi22> there is a small button, if I press it, the rpi turns off that red light
[18:21] <Goldi22> I guess its some power button, you dony have it?
[18:21] <mfa298> probably, there's no power buton on any of my pis so I don't know what your setup is
[18:22] <Goldi22> so you cant turn off your red light at all?

[18:22] <mfa298> if I unplug the pi - which happens rarely
[18:22] <Goldi22> can you turn it on from red light state to normal state with keyboard?
[18:23] <Goldi22> what do I press
[18:23] <mfa298> I think you can do something with a gpio pin to reset it - it's not something I need

[20:29] <doublehp> Jessie with Kedei v5 works fine on rPi3, but not on rPi2 ...
[20:32] <doublehp> Kedei v1 and v5 use different pinout; and they are not provided by manufacturer. https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=124961 have done a huge reverse engineering, but this does not apply for OrangePi hosts.

[20:44] <doublehp> http://kedei.net/raspberry/raspberry.html is certified for v6 screens; Amazon and Ebay are not specific about hardware version; Ali usually is much more precise.
[20:45] <doublehp> The problem is that drivers like https://github.com/notro/fbtft/wiki do not explicitely state for which version they are compatible
[20:45] <IanTLopp> I need to find an 8" 1280x960 screen with a five wire reflextive touchscreen digitizer.
[20:45] <IanTLopp> I'm having no luck :(
[20:45] <akk> With most hardware, things settle down and get easier. Like 2-line LCD displays and 1- or 2-digit LED displays, those used to be hard to get working
[20:45] <IanTLopp> I found a 1024x768, but not 1280x960

[20:48] <akk> "rpi certified had items" ?
[20:48] <doublehp> IanTLopp: both are ILI9341 / XPT2046 - 240x320 ... and share similar pinout .... and very similar PCB ... so, I would not be surprised they are compatible
[20:49] <IanTLopp> oh, gotcha
[20:49] <doublehp> akk: like https://www.amazon.fr/gp/product/B06X191RX7/ref=od_aui_detailpages00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 with raspberry in the title
[20:49] <IanTLopp> I'm just happy I found the screen I did...
[20:49] <IanTLopp> I am afraid, however, now that akk is having problems with what should otherwise be a basic board, that I'm going to have major difficulties with mine.
[20:50] <IanTLopp> it supports spi and rgb - I figured basic pinout and settings in raspbian would do the trick, but I'll figure it out eventually I suppose
[20:50] <doublehp> https://www.amazon.fr/gp/product/B06X191RX7/ref=od_aui_detailpages00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 was provided with a DVDrom including all required images, and windows tools
[20:50] <doublehp> but of course, those images are not designed for my orange pis
[20:51] <gordonDrogon> I guess I'm too boring these days. I just buy supported screens, plug them in and go ..
[20:51] <IanTLopp> gordonDrogon, yeah, well no supported screens exist in the setup I need.
[20:52] <IanTLopp> adafruit is close, but the resolution is crap
[20:52] <doublehp> gordonDrogon: https://kaspars.net/blog/linux/spi-display-orange-pi-zero he does not give the link to the exact item he bought; https://forum.armbian.com/topic/4656-orangepi-zero-mainline-kernel-spi-lcd-touchscreen/ he does not even give which system image he is using, and kernel version is absolutely critical
[20:52] <mfa298> I work on the principle that if the documentation is poor on the sales side, then the support post sales will be just as good and so the effort required will be massive (with little guidance), conversly if it's advertised as supported and has good documentation then life will be easy

[20:55] <gordonDrogon> you're making the mistake that I care about orange Pi. I don't and this is a Raspberry Pi channel.
[20:56] <IanTLopp> mfa298: what if the part you buy is nearly unique? there's no other version that might be more compatible?
[20:56] <IanTLopp> that's what I'm faced with (well it might be easy - haven't received them yet)
[20:57] <akk> Are there actually supported touchscreens, that work with standard raspbian kernels?
[20:57] <IanTLopp> akk: I've had good luck with adafruit screens
[20:57] <IanTLopp> with regards to the touchscreen.
[20:57] <IanTLopp> but the form factor and the like might not fit what you need.
[20:57] <mfa298> IanTLopp: depends how you feel about gambling! nearly unique might mean just slightly different in the most important factor (i.e. they changed the one thing that makes it not work)
[20:57] <akk> IanTLopp: Y'know, I just tried searching on adafruit and searching for raspberry display or raspberry touchscreen finds nothing.
[20:58] <akk> I know they used to have them, so maybe search is broken on their site today.
[20:58] <gordonDrogon> the adafruit 5" HDMI screen works well as does (of-course) the Pi 7" screen.
[20:58] <IanTLopp> akk: what size screen are you looking for?
[20:58] <IanTLopp> mfa298: try finding a 320x240 screen in 1.8" size
[20:59] <akk> I was looking for 3.2 -- something the same size as the pi3.
[20:59] <doublehp> gordonDrogon: my initial question was: is there a script that can probe SPI bus, and detect items; if you want to talk about rpi, I am in trouble connecting an ENJC28..... to an rpi0; I have tried 3 tutorials, but the pinout of my ethernet item seem different and remains undetected

[20:59] <gordonDrogon> doublehp, there is no such script.
[20:59] <IanTLopp> https://www.adafruit.com/product/2616
[21:00] <gordonDrogon> doublehp, it's an open bus - devices don't have "ID" codes, or addresses like I2C. You need to know what you connect to it to use that device.
[21:00] <doublehp> akk: https://github.com/torvalds/linux/tree/master/drivers/staging/fbtft https://github.com/notro/fbtft/wiki/LCD-Modules
[21:00] <mfa298> simple rule I tend to work by these days: buy something that says it's compatible from a trusted source and it'll probably work (and if not then it's in their interests to help out). If you buy the cheapest option possible (generally ebay or similar types of seller). If you buy from the cheapest place then be prepared for the matching level of support (i.e. none)
[21:01] <IanTLopp> @#$TING CRAP
[21:01] <IanTLopp> I bought the wrong board.
[21:01] <IanTLopp> https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01IGBDT02/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 ordered one of the last of these..
[21:01] <IanTLopp> I had actually been trying to get the 3.2
[21:01] <doublehp> akk: as I said previously, all top-hat items with raspberry in the title of seller page will work outof the box with manufacturer image. Raspbian official images hardly can include ready to use settings for any item, because they all differ in the init sequence, making most of them very hard to detect at boot time.
[21:01] <IanTLopp> I saw the price and thought, holy crap, so cheap! snap snap, it's bought and shipped.
[21:01] <IanTLopp> now I find out it's the wrong size :(
[21:02] <akk> IanTLopp: So that adafruit board works with drivers already in the raspbian kernel? They're not super clear on that on the product page.
[21:02] <gordonDrogon> there used to be several little 2.8 & 3.2" displays for the Pi - the main issue is that the developers of those displays need to keep-up with the foundation kernel releases and it seems that's not as easy as it might appear, so from what I can gather, most of them have been discontinued.
[21:02] <gordonDrogon> your best bet might be to get one of the little analog monitors - e.g. car reversing things and use the compost video output.
[21:03] <IanTLopp> akk: that... is a good question.
[21:03] * hishamn__ (~hisham@ has joined #raspberrypi
[21:03] <IanTLopp> honestly, I doubt it, in retrospect.
[21:03] <akk> There are a ton of 2.8 and 3.2 displays but they come in lots of different versions, and you can't necessarily download a driver to go with whatever version they shipped you.
[21:03] <mfa298> doublehp: for the Pi if the device is advertised as a HAT then it should have an ID eeprom to identify itself and could just work on the Raspberry Pi. if you get some other cheap poorly supported boards then good luck
[21:03] <IanTLopp> I do own one of them, and I seem to remember having to download and install the drivers for it.
[21:03] <IanTLopp> by default it didn't work, so after the driver download - it was smooth.
[21:03] <gordonDrogon> or something like this which is USB and not SPI. https://shop.pimoroni.com/products/2-8-usb-tft-touch-display-screen-for-raspberry-pi-v2
[21:03] <akk> IanTLopp: That's scary given that they don't seem to link to a driver download.
[21:03] <akk> Adafruit support used to be great but lately it's not so good.
[21:04] <doublehp> gordonDrogon: when I tried using LCD and ethernet SPI, drivers were saying "received NULL", implying item not detected; so, SPI has some kind of ping, like i2c_detect ...
[21:04] <IanTLopp> akk: if you get it and need help, I'll be happy to find the links for you that I got.
[21:04] <IanTLopp> of course, they may have improved things since then and the links may not be required.
[21:04] <gordonDrogon> here is a supported 2.8" one: https://shop.pimoroni.com/products/adafruit-pitft-plus-320x240-2-8-tft-capacitive-touchscreen
[21:05] * Dqr (~morten@ has joined #raspberrypi
[21:05] <gordonDrogon> doublehp, trust me on this: There is no "ping", "pong" or otherwise on SPI. Really, you send bits down, you get bits back - you need to know what bits to send down to know what bits are coming back.
[21:05] <IanTLopp> akk: https://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-pitft-28-inch-resistive-touchscreen-display-raspberry-pi/easy-install
[21:05] <mfa298> doublehp: SPI doesn't have "some kind of ping" different devices might have a way to query it's type/version etc. but that will be different between every single device.
[21:05] <IanTLopp> it's apparently the same as the 2.8" pitft boards
[21:06] * sammysands (uid32634@gateway/web/irccloud.com/x-xxnuennlpwgempqj) has joined #raspberrypi
[21:06] <akk> Looks like those adafruit touchscreens (including the pimoroni one) come with their own kernel which isn't actually up to date with the normal raspbian kernel.
[21:06] <IanTLopp> oh that sucks
[21:06] <mfa298> doublehp: so you can potentially test for a known device, but that might do something weird if a different device is connected, one devices "ping" might be something elses "burn with fire" command

[21:07] <akk> The pimoroni page notes that bluetooth doesn't work (that actually wouldn't bother me, I seldom use bluetooth, but I wonder what else might be behind? like security updates?)
[21:07] <IanTLopp> akk: likely security updates -esp. considering the whole Meltdown/Spectre debacle
[21:07] <IanTLopp> though I've read that there aren't supposed to be ANY problems with the raspi boards with regards to that problem.
[21:07] <akk> IanTLopp: Right, that's one reason I'm not thrilled about "you have to install our whole kernel" or "our whole distro"
[21:08] <akk> rather than just offering a driver you can add to regular raspbian.
[21:08] <IanTLopp> yeah
[21:08] <IanTLopp> for my purposes, if they had a proper 1.8" screen, I wouldn't mind it as the devices aren't going to be connected to the internet except where updates are needed - which will be few and far between if at all.
[21:08] <akk> plus, of course, wondering what easter eggs might be hidden in someone's binary kernel downloads, especially if it's from some dodgy chinese company
[21:09] <akk> less so from adafruit, but still, how much personal attention do they pay to the downloads?
[21:09] <IanTLopp> akk: I think pimoroni wouldn't be doing something like that.
[21:09] <akk> I'm sure neither adafruit nor pimoroni would do it intentionally.
[21:09] <akk> So who writes their driver code, who generates this binary download, who oversees it and reviews the code?
[21:10] <gordonDrogon> anyway, tonights project done. just need to put it back in it's box then do some more tests on battery life
[21:10] <gordonDrogon> https://unicorn.drogon.net/power.jpg
[21:10] <akk> If it's safe, why don't they just offer driver source?
[21:10] <IanTLopp> this is totally speculation and conjecture, but, pimoroni?
[21:10] <akk> That pimoroni page makes it pretty clear they're just selling hardware from adafruit and that's where the special kernel comes from.
[21:10] <akk> So, no, probably not.
[21:11] <IanTLopp> oh
[21:11] <IanTLopp> speculation and conjecture
[21:11] <akk> On the pimoroni page: "Please note at this time the Pi Kernel we have does not come with support for built-in Pi 3 Bluetooth. There is no ETA when Adafruit will have this fixed."

[21:19] <akk> Does the foundation make it that hard to get drivers into the mainline kernel?

[21:24] <gordonDrogon> it's easy to take a foundation kernel and apply your own drivers into it - however that takes time and effort - getting stuff into the foundation kernel - no idea - getting it into the mainline kernel - no idea.
[21:24] <IanTLopp> programming - no idea :)
[21:25] <gordonDrogon> so if adafuruit had someone who had the time and energy to put their drivers into the current stable kernel, then great, but tomorrow when the foundation reelase a new kernel, then start again.
[21:25] * sdothum (~znc@ has joined #raspberrypi
[21:26] <Habbie> there is (apt-get install) dkms
[21:26] <Habbie> which allows you to ship a driver as a bunch of source
[21:26] <Habbie> and when apt-get updates your kernel
[21:26] <Habbie> a trigger will run and rebuild your driver
[21:27] <gordonDrogon> maybe if someone were to do it for the adafruit drivers (a) they'd be grateful and (b) support might be better - it's someone who knows how to do it finding the time to do it (I guess)
[21:27] <akk> gordonDrogon: That's the point of having drivers outside the kernel, or else getting them accepted into the mainline kernel.
[21:27] <akk> When a new kernel comes out, your drivers still work (or work with slight updates, possibly).
[21:28] <gordonDrogon> akk, don't tell me, I don't care - tell adafruit.
