[12:18] <ovidiu_C> Hello all, i have a little problem connecting the PI with my wireless network, i done everything i know but with no luck. my wpa_supplicant.conf looks like this http://paste.debian.net/1071/
[12:18] <ovidiu_C> can somebody help me please
[12:19] <ParkerR> ovidiu_C, What does your /etn/networking/interfaces file contain?
[12:19] <ParkerR> */etc
[12:20] <ParkerR> */etc/network/interfaces
[12:20] <ovidiu_C> one moment ParkerR
[12:20] <linuxboy> ovidiu_C: is that SSID correct?
[12:20] <ovidiu_C> yes
[12:22] * satellit__e (~satellit_@ has joined #raspbian
[12:25] <ovidiu_C> this is the interfaces file http://paste.debian.net/1073/
[12:26] <ParkerR> ovidiu_C, This works for me http://pastebin.com/27RJsuz5
[12:26] <ParkerR> I dont actually think you define roam in the interfaces file
[12:27] <ParkerR> For roaming I hear adding a network to wpa_supplicant.conf with a network name of any suffices
[12:31] * Skelli is now known as zZz_Skelli
[12:34] <ParkerR> ovidiu_C, Is that working?
[12:34] * joat (~joat@ip70-160-213-229.hr.hr.cox.net) Quit (Read error: Operation timed out)
[12:34] <ovidiu_C> ParkerR: not working
[12:35] <ParkerR> Hmm

[12:36] <ovidiu_C> uh i didn't change that

[12:38] <ParkerR> ovidiu_C, Just editing it wont change it. You have to sudo service networking restart
[12:39] <ovidiu_C> done that
[12:39] <ParkerR> Ahh ok
[12:39] <ovidiu_C> even reboot the system
[12:41] * redsoup (~redsups@h-123-173-94.a336.priv.bahnhof.se) has joined #raspbian
[12:47] <ovidiu_C> i think its my wifi network's name the problem here
[12:49] <ParkerR> What is your ssid
[12:49] <ParkerR> "root@localhost" is seriously your network name?

[13:49] <larsgk> muep: qt5 runs MUCH faster (well.. scene graph, etc.) on the GLES2
[13:50] <larsgk> muep: I see no reason for raspbian to stick with qt4
[13:55] <muep> I see the reason that raspbian so far has mostly stuck to what debian wheezy contains. But I do not really know what raspbian developers intend to do later
[13:58] <sxpert> migrate to whatever sid contains, I guess
[14:00] <larsgk> well... qt5 was (among other things) designed for speed on mobile (which RPi sorta is) ... qt4.x not so much
[14:00] <larsgk> thank FSM for Sebastian (twolife) who is building and providing qt5 for raspbian
[14:01] <larsgk> I would be lost without it :)

[14:17] * mike_t (~mike@pluto.dd.vaz.ru) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[14:21] <twolife> larsgk: qt5 is currently being uploaded to debian experimental. after debian wheezy is released (this week-end if there is no more delay) it should appear in the next few weeks in debian unstable. after that, there will be a migration to debian testing "if it works without too many bugs". and only after all that there is a chance it will appear in raspbian. so it will not be anytime soon
[14:29] <larsgk> twolife: ok - I hope you will keep it alive for some time... any plans to change it?
[14:31] <twolife> larsgk: i started to rebuild the packages from debian experimental for the rpi. so i should be able to get rid of my own stuff and simply rebuild what debian provide. it will be much more simple for me :)
[14:34] <twolife> larsgk: but... (there is always a 'but') it will conflict with my old stuff , you will have to remove by yourself the old packages. it 's a pain in the ass to add the conflict/replace field in every single binary packages produced by the official debian packaging
[14:35] <larsgk> twolife: ok
[14:36] <larsgk> twolife: I think I need to refresh with a clean new raspbian anyway before going to the pilot phase .. so a new build, etc. should be fine (as long as it works-ish ;))

[15:25] <RJ45> does anyone here know how to change the Raspberry Pi's apt-get repo to the Debian Official repo?, whenever I try to install anything with the built-in Raspbian repo, I just keep getting a loada '404 not found' :-(
[15:28] <muep> RJ45: my impression is that debian packages would not work in raspbian
[15:28] <muep> due to raspbian using a different function calling convention
[15:29] <RJ45> muep: surely Debians ARMHF repo would work okay?, I mean, the Raspian's ARMHF right?
[15:30] <muep> debian has an official armhf build now?
[15:31] <RJ45> muep: yeah (thank fuck for that!), it's mostly 'testing' and 'unstable' though, and it's 'wheezy', anyways, check it out @ packages.debian.org
[15:31] <muep> RJ45: looks like there is an armhf port of debian, but it needs armv7
[15:31] <Mogwai> RJ45: Debian armhf is for ARMv7 architecture and higher .. that's pretty much why Raspbian was started in the first place
[15:31] <muep> the cpu in raspberry pi only does armv6
[15:32] <RJ45> oh FFS! X.X
[15:32] <muep> yeah, raspbian would be much less meaningful (at least for me) if the ports already offered in debian would fit the RPi well
[15:32] <RJ45> then why the hell don't Debian quote 'armhfV7'!?!
[15:32] * mike_t (~mike@ has joined #raspbian
[15:33] <muep> the port listing in http://www.debian.org/ports/ os explicit about armhf needing armv7
[15:33] <muep> *is
[15:34] <RJ45> fucking hell, stupid ARM architectures
[15:34] <Mogwai> RJ45: But for your original problem, did you do "sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade" before trying to install new stuff?
[15:34] <RJ45> I did; sudo apt-get install -f
[15:35] <muep> yeah, your reasons for wanting to use packages from debian sound like something you could just solve instead of working around
[15:35] <Mogwai> RJ45: The important part is the update first
[15:36] <RJ45> well I really don't like to upgrade stuff (please don't ask why), so would I be okay with just update?
[15:36] <Mogwai> RJ45: Otherwise, you might be trying to install old packages that are no longer in the location that apt-get think they are .. thus the 404
[15:36] <Mogwai> RJ45: Yes, just do the update

[16:39] <RJ45> I mean, I planned on installing Nautilus anyway ...but for organizational purposes, I would prefer to install separately x.x
[16:39] <vagrantc> then disable recommends...
[16:39] <sney> it's something carried over from debian. having a lot of gnome components that integrate with each other is not usually a bad thing
[16:39] <taza> RJ45: So turn off recommended packages?
[16:40] <vagrantc> and deal with the consequences of "why doesn't feature X work?"
[16:40] <RJ45> well I figured that 'recommended packages' would have a little more sense in it :-/
[16:40] <taza> RJ45: dealwithit.jpg. Ubuntu used to have OpenOffice as a demanded package for English support.
[16:40] <sney> they are components of the same desktop environment and they integrate with each other. within debian's usual setup for recommends, it does make sense.
[16:41] <sney> the depends/recommends/suggests architecture was not rebuild from the ground up for the space and resources constraints on the raspberry pi.
[16:43] <taza> As long as it's only "recommends" rather than "depends", you should count yourself lucky.
[16:44] <taza> Though, if it was "depends" rather than "recommends", it'd get fixed... eventually...
[16:44] <sney> I would recommend using apt-get --no-install-recommends on certain apt runs rather than disabling it globally
[16:45] <sney> and if a package you want was brought in as a dep or recommend by something else and you wanted it installed separately for whatever crazy reason you can just do 'apt-get unmarkauto packagename' for the same result
[16:46] <taza> sney: Any way to force away depends?
[16:47] <taza> Because that comes in handy when I know that a package is built with a dependency it doesn't really need.
[16:48] <vagrantc> you could create fake packages with equivs
[16:48] <taza> Yeah, I did create fake packages last time that happened.
[16:48] <sney> you can use -m if the unwanted dependencies aren't available. or you can install a .deb locally with the force option. neither is really worth it
[16:48] <taza> Fake packages it is.

[19:38] <vagrantc> RJ45: it's an english word
[19:38] <gnarface> you could resize the partition in it, THEN truncate *carefully* ... i've succeeded at that before
[19:38] <vagrantc> yeah, that's probably feasible.
[19:38] <RJ45> so I resize in Gparted, then what?
[19:39] <vagrantc> but basically, for the first 100MB, dd if=/dev/YOURDEVICE of=IMAGE.img bs=1024k count=100
[19:39] <TheJH> RJ45, you could just compress the image. much easier and safer.
[19:39] <gnarface> RJ45: then you truncate however much you like but make sure you only truncate unpartitioned space
[19:39] <vagrantc> yeah, compressing the image is really a good idea.
[19:39] <RJ45> people people!, I am a noob!
[19:40] <RJ45> treat me as the noob I am!
[19:40] <vagrantc> RJ45: then just live with the full image size
[19:40] <RJ45> x.x
[19:40] <TheJH> `dd if=/dev/sdX | gzip > my_image.img.gz`
[19:40] <gnarface> RJ45: familiarizing yourself with dd and gparted is not a waste of time in this endeavor.
[19:40] <TheJH> and then, to lash the image later: `gunzip < my_image.img.gz | dd of=/dev/sdX`
[19:40] <vagrantc> RJ45: either be willing to learn, or accept limitations, you can't have it both ways.
[19:40] <gnarface> RJ45: careful with dd though; there's no safety
[19:41] <TheJH> s/lash/flash/
[19:41] <RJ45> I'm willing to learn, but I can only learn at a pace.
[19:41] <gnarface> RJ45: oh the part i should have mentioned about *carefully* is; it will require basic aritmatic skills
[19:41] <gnarface> basically you have to do everything by block count
[19:41] <RJ45> -_-
[19:41] <gnarface> yea, i know. its painful, but to do this safely you gotta know how many blocks your partition takes up
[19:42] <gnarface> so you can subtract that amount from the current image size
[19:42] <gnarface> then what's left over is how much you can truncate
[19:42] <gnarface> what was the question again? why is it you don't actually want the full-size image?
[19:43] <RJ45> wait wait wait, please someone tell me what 'truncate' means?
[19:43] <gnarface> by truncate i mean literally use dd to copy the image, but only tell it to copy "X" blocks, where "X" is some value less than the total amount of blocks the image takes up. that's how you truncate disk images
[19:44] <gnarface> but you will of course lose data if your number is too small
[19:44] <gnarface> conceptually it is as simple as the command to do it
[19:44] <RJ45> I really wish people would say 'cut' instead of 'truncate' -_-
[19:44] <gnarface> sorry
[19:44] <gnarface> terminology is a tripping point; its important to come to an agreement
[19:45] <RJ45> :-/
[19:45] <gnarface> it gets easier
[19:45] <gnarface> this is how you practice
[19:46] <RJ45> is it that all I have-to do is open Gparted, add-up how many MB is used per partition (and add swap), then use that number in a command?
[19:47] <gnarface> RJ45: basically yes. i think you have to account for the partition headers and boot sector and possibly some other offset padding values
[19:47] <gnarface> RJ45: but i believe gparted shows you the data relatively plainly
[19:47] <vagrantc> RJ45: https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/truncate
[19:48] <RJ45> so, what I said, and also add 200MB to be safe?
[19:48] <gnarface> RJ45: probably, but sorry i don't have enough info to know
[19:48] <RJ45> oh, ok
[19:49] <gnarface> RJ45: you shouldn't have to add more than 1 or 2 MB "to be safe" if you did the math even remotely right
[19:49] <gnarface> RJ45: here's my suggestion: start by making a full copy of the whole thing, then open THAT in gparted, then post a screenshot
[19:50] <RJ45> is there some sorta geek voodoo I have-to do when it comes to block size?, like, do I have-to get everything perfect to the byte?
[19:53] <PhotoJim> if you don't want it to be slower than it could be, yes
[19:53] <PhotoJim> err, as fast as it could be
[19:54] <RJ45> so I just do it to the nearest estimated MB?
[19:55] <gnarface> RJ45: what does this command give you? fdisk -l [image]

[19:57] <RJ45> are .IMGs easy to edit?
[19:58] <gnarface> yes, you will be able to edit them in the exact same fashion as a real disk

[19:59] <RJ45> *sigh*, okay, c'ya next year when dd's finished transferring a full 32GB over USB 2.0 -_-
[19:59] <Bushmills> impatience fails to destroy data if that was the goal to begin with
[20:00] <gnarface> RJ45: hah. 7 hours max. you'll probably be done within 4.
[20:00] <gnarface> RJ45: next time do the manipulation ahead of time on a local harddrive as an img file to begin with. then don't write it to the SD card till you got it sized right.
[20:01] <RJ45> would it transfer faster it I where able to re-partition everything smaller in Gparted first?, or is dd gonna copy the unallocated space too?
[20:01] <gnarface> RJ45: real spinning-platter harddrives are WAY faster than even the best SD cards to-date (some day this will change, but it won't be any time soon)
[20:01] <gnarface> RJ45: unfortunately dd is very low level. it will copy the unpartitioned space too.
[20:02] <RJ45> >.<
[20:02] <RJ45> BTW, I had-to do the manipulations on an actual RasPi
[20:02] <RJ45> soo yeah.
[20:03] <RJ45> 'aight, before I do this shit, I want it all lookin' professional first, so how does one manipulate the BASH backlog?
[20:03] <gnarface> not sure what you mean by "manipulate"
[20:03] <RJ45> I wish to forge a BASH log
[20:03] <Bushmills> the rm command is a great file manipulator
[20:04] <gnarface> RJ45: you can probably type the up arrow or ctrl-p to scroll back through your bash history
[20:04] <gnarface> RJ45: and ctrl-r should give you a prompt to enter a string to search through it in reverse
[20:04] <Bushmills> log as in "command line history"?
[20:05] <gnarface> RJ45: there are other options for traversing it (like !N where N is a index number of the command in reverse) but i think you have to turn that on manually
[20:05] <RJ45> no, I want to forge the log so I can delete all previous commands, and insert some artificial scroll-up
[20:05] <gnarface> RJ45: oh. just edit the ~/.bash_history, i think
[20:05] <RJ45> 'k thx
[20:06] <gnarface> RJ45: note I never tried that myself so i'm just guessing. if you want to figure out if there's a more kosher way to do it it would be in the bash man page

[21:00] <sney> ^
[21:01] <sney> 3 years of experience with the general principles is a good starting point to actually get good at it, though. it would come easily.
[21:01] <gnarface> i would say if you were head-first in a linux-only environment, sure
[21:01] <sney> linux tells you everything, it's not as opaque as the microsoft product. lots of informative feedback.
[21:01] <gnarface> i would say 3 years of actually using windows+mac to try to boostrap a rasbperry pi without learning fuck-all about linux though... that on the other hand is an utterly flawed approach
[21:02] <sney> just gotta resist that urge to approach problems with a rigid idea of what's going to happen
[21:02] <ParkerR> Linux doesnt always tell you everything but part of the experience is getting it to work when the odds are against you
[21:02] <sney> meh, I started out with a few years of bludgeoning my way through a bunch of very broken debian potato and slackware 7/8 setups on old hardware.
[21:02] <gnarface> wow that's brutal
[21:03] <gnarface> i tried to switch to debian at woody and failed
[21:03] <gnarface> didn't succeed till sarge
[21:03] <gnarface> since then i've been debian-only for the most part
[21:03] <ParkerR> Wheezy has been great for me
[21:03] <gnarface> redhat was good in the late 90's
[21:03] <gnarface> they were the poster boy
[21:03] <gnarface> they lost their calling though
[21:04] <sney> the result of my early experiments is I'm very familiar with lib dependencies and I can usually infer what kind of bad decisions new users are making while helping in #d
[21:04] <gnarface> now ubuntu is eating their lunch but its gonna end the same for ubuntu
[21:04] <sney> and debian will just keep going, probably
[21:04] <ParkerR> Hard for the base of many distros to die
[21:05] <sney> fell on some hard times during sarge, and it'll take a long time for many parts of that era's reputation to go away
[21:05] <sney> but tied for most popular webserver OS isn't too shabby either
[21:08] <gnarface> heh
[21:08] * goretoxo_ (~pi@ has joined #raspbian
[21:08] <gnarface> yea, if the version that attaned that credential wasn't lenny, that is
[21:08] <gnarface> (a year + after we stopped its support)
[21:08] <sney> well, the last graph I saw still had it going back and forth between $current_stable and CentOS

[21:09] * goretoxo_ (~pi@ Quit (Client Quit)
[21:09] * sney shrug
[21:09] <gnarface> but etch and up have worked great for me
[21:09] <sney> they both have stability mandates and huge user bases.
[21:09] <gnarface> i just wish i would stop seeng lenny installs on virtual servers and the client is like "no we can't upgrade omgz!!!"
[21:09] <sney> and I know if I have to deal with a webserver, if it's debian or CentOS, I know what to expect and anything dumb is the host's fault
[21:10] <sney> yeah, I have a squeeze vps right now, not sure what's going to happen there in a couple weeks
[21:10] <RJ45> instead of doing the dd img thing, would it be possible to just remember the partitions and make a drg&drop copy of all the files?
[21:10] <RJ45> literally, just copy and paste
[21:11] <sney> RJ45, you could do that but you'd lose the part of the image that makes it bootable
[21:11] * goretoxo (~pi@ Quit (Quit: leaving)
[21:12] <gnarface> RJ45: what he means is that will work but it will leave extra steps to do. its not an easier approach and it won't keep you from learning how to create an image that contains a viable boot sector.
[21:12] <sney> you could use a cron job and tar to make periodic backups of your data and configurations to some other host on your network. then if you had to restore for whatever reason (borked sd card comes to mind) you can just use your last image and then restore your data after you boot
[21:13] <gnarface> RJ45: its a harder approach and afterwards you'd have to still create all that work over from scratch.
[21:13] <RJ45> sney: wouldn't using the standard Raspbian image to make the boot sector, then replacing the resulting files work?
[21:13] <ParkerR> I like dd'ing my whole card. Makes for a nice simple backup
[21:13] <sney> yes, but it doesn't reduce your workload
[21:13] * gnarface knows that would work but also knows its harder to do
[21:13] * goretoxo (~pi@ has joined #raspbian
[21:13] <sney> and mounting a specific partition within a disk image is a minor pain in the ass
[21:14] <gnarface> well
[21:14] <ParkerR> Ive seen a way to just mount part of a disk image
[21:14] <sney> you do it with losetup. but sometimes there's trial and error to get the right spots.
[21:14] <gnarface> `echo $((512*2048))` usually works for me inline
[21:14] <RJ45> fock it, I'll do both
[21:14] <ParkerR> Dont remember what it was
[21:14] <gnarface> RJ45: whatever you do, do the backup first! dd the whole SD card to a local harddrive and work on THAT copy. trust me you don't want to be working on your only copy if you make a mistake
[21:15] <ParkerR> http://madduck.net/blog/2006.10.20:loop-mounting-partitions-from-a-disk-image/
[21:15] <RJ45> I shall rape my SD Card with DD first then.
[21:16] <ParkerR> How is it raping your SD card?
[21:16] <gnarface> RJ45: use a larger block size; it will go faster. (try 1MB or even 4MB)
[21:17] <RJ45> gnarface: I don't know how.
[21:17] <ParkerR> bs=4M
[21:17] <ParkerR> Add that to the dd line

[21:17] <RJ45> you see everyone!, when helping me, ur answers should be more like ParkerR's!!!
[21:17] <gnarface> RJ45: in rare cases, 4M won't work with some flash drives, but 1M will work almost everywhere

[21:38] <gnarface> ParkerR: you can use the loop device to make it easier though
[21:38] <ParkerR> Eh Im used to mount
[21:38] <gnarface> you still use mount
[21:39] <gnarface> but if you mount the first partition on loop 0 with an offset to it
[21:39] <gnarface> then you can easily mount the subsequent partitions in order on loop 1 - X
[21:39] <RJ45> heheh, I was able to clear up half the space I need, by deleting a no-longer relevant backup of a Micro SD, no-longer relevant backups of Stepmania songs, and a no-longer relevant backup of some ROMs, and also moving some ISOs., ...now just 16GB to go.

[22:13] <RJ45> does gzip-ing it as it's dd-ing make it automatically as small as it could be?, like removing the excess space turning a 32GB dd into a 2GB dd?, is that how it works?
[22:15] <dwatkins> RJ45: I don't think you can compress whilst writing to the SD card - it won't be readable
[22:15] <dwatkins> or are you reading from it and gzipping?
[22:15] <RJ45> the later, yes.
[22:16] <RJ45> making a dd .img
[22:16] <RJ45> but gzip-ing as it goes
[22:16] <dwatkins> it's probably much faster to dd with bs=1m and then gzip afterwards, so it can look for common patters across the entire file

[22:27] <RJ45> command*
[22:27] <sney> yes, /dev/sdb1 isn't a mount point or a directory
[22:27] <Tachyon`> gzip doesn't do dictionary compression
[22:27] <Tachyon`> bzip2 might
[22:28] <gnarface> well
[22:28] <Tachyon`> and 7zip definitely does
[22:28] <gnarface> use 7zip if it matters, that's probably the best right now
[22:28] <RJ45> is this better?:...
[22:28] <gnarface> but RJ45 of should be like ~/Cust_RasPi.img
[22:28] <RJ45> # dd if=/dev/sdc2 bs=4M of=/media/Bay/Cust_RasPi.img
[22:28] <gnarface> or whatever
[22:28] <sney> yeah that fixes it

[22:29] <gnarface> yes, go

[22:30] <gnarface> read should be faster than write but it will still probably take a while

[22:36] <RJ45> just checked the .img in Nautilus, 6GB so-far
[22:36] <gnarface> jigoe: i don't actually know, i just did "apt-cache search i2c" and picked something for you out of the list
[22:36] <jigoe> OK, thanks.
[22:37] <jigoe> I think it does, looking at the code.
[22:37] <jigoe> Might patch gordons functions so that it works with n bytes.
[22:37] <jigoe> Seems like a good feature

[22:37] <RJ45> 7GB...
[22:37] <TheJH> RJ45: with sdc2, you'll only get the partition. if you want the whole disk, use sdc (without the 2)
