<Armbian-Discord> <l​anefu> world's quietest armbian day
<[TheBug]> man IRC has just been so quiet today... its almost like there is a discord bridge or something
<[TheBug]> ;)
<lanefu> lol
archetyp has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
<Armbian-Discord> <N​eonFetch> indeed!
<Armbian-Discord> <N​eonFetch> hey, does anyone tested VPU on mainline on rk3399 ??
<lanefu> Nope just always let brute force do the work
<Armbian-Discord> <T​onymac32> not so far
<Armbian-Discord> <T​onymac32> it's still a bit of a moving target
<Armbian-Discord> <N​eonFetch> this was never merged for some reason. https://github.com/LibreELEC/LibreELEC.tv/pull/4988

<Armbian-Discord> <I​gorPec> if this works, its certainly worth merging. our current involvement in mainline vpu was minimal at this stage

<lanefu> stipa: no crashes since switching to static IP on pineh64
<Armbian-Discord> <I​gorPec> good morning lanefu
<Armbian-Discord> <I​gorPec> where is that code example for comminicating with netbox?
<lanefu> DM'd
<lanefu> that's for ansible dynamic inventory
<lanefu> is that what you're looking for?
CrashTestDummy3 has joined #armbian
<stipa> lanefu: cool, let's hope it'll lat
<stipa> last*

<stipa> lanefu: what if you put dhcpl lease to one minute?
<lanefu> stipa: lol i havent been in the mood to test it
<lanefu> i need to replicate issue on my spare pineh64 adn go from there
<stipa> right
<stipa> just an idea
<lanefu> yeah no its a good idea. i had similar thoughts
<lanefu> s/yeah no/yeah
<ArmbianHelper> lanefu meant to say: yeah its a good idea. i had similar thoughts
wwilly has quit [Ping timeout: 258 seconds]
<stipa> lanefu: it's not good it's a great idea
<stipa> i'm trying to get spellcheck working in weechat
<lanefu> s/good idea/great idea/
<ArmbianHelper> lanefu meant to say: yeah no its a great idea. i had similar thoughts
<stipa> that's better
<lanefu> i was using hte multiline plugin until it made my pastes worse lol
<stipa> there's some cool plugins, i should use more of them
<stipa> i have only "nicregain"
<stipa> nickregain or something
<stipa> keepnick
<stipa> one of them is broken
<stipa> for my version of weechat
<stipa> i want to get speelcheck going, idea of going to internet broweser to check spelling of words is horrific
stipa has quit [Quit: WeeChat 3.0.1]
stipa has joined #armbian
<stipa> got something working, misspelled words end up red in color, neat stuff
<lanefu> sweet
<stipa> Yeah, no one will ever notice that I'm not from Canada
lanefu has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
lanefu has joined #armbian
<lanefu> lol i accidentaly deactived my NIC trying to fix my netmask
<lanefu> guess i'll have to start over lol
<stipa> heh
<stipa> at least you'll remember some commands you hadn't known before
<stipa> i always forget that shit
<stipa> two, three months and i gforget
<stipa> and there's usually some new commands everyone should use by then and old suck
<stipa> there's million commands to do same thing in linux networking
<lanefu> yeah it gets frustrating...and trying to normalize my boxes too
<lanefu> and even firewall stuff i have to choose now
<lanefu> been using firewalld on some of my servers lately
<stipa> yeah, constant tweaking
<stipa> but it's much better than being left without software support for old hardware
<stipa> like with windows and osx
<stipa> that's pure consumerism
<stipa> like bread and milk
<stipa> but for example learning new software and having to acquire new hardware to work with it is just horrific
<stipa> with linux it should just work, old and new hardware should be compatible
<stipa> i guess it's worth the hassle to learn few new commands

<sams> can anyone recommend a good usb charger for 3 x orange pi (4, 3, pc2), and a rasp pi 3b? really sturggling with supplying enough power atm and they randomly go offline as a result
<Armbian-Discord> <T​onymac32> All at once or individually?
<Armbian-Discord> <T​onymac32> If all at once, get a meanwell chassis supply and make sure you know what you're doing before wiring it
<sams> yeah all at once
<Armbian-Discord> <T​onymac32> Yeah so assuming 4A each to give you some headroom you need a 16-20A meanwell chassis supply
<Armbian-Discord> <T​onymac32> The reason I say to overspec is, running above 50/60% rating all the time will shorten the life of a supply
<sams> they look complicated, nothing out there consumer wise?!
<Armbian-Discord> <T​onymac32> Almost all chargers that are designed not to burn your house down expect an 'intelligent' device at the end of the cable that can give an indication of how much current it can demand
<Armbian-Discord> <T​onymac32> You don't have anything like that
<Armbian-Discord> <T​onymac32> So it needs to be a "dumb" charger that's willing to just send current down the line
<lanefu> Sams for north america?
<lanefu> Are you powering USB devices? Or just headless compute
<lanefu> sams: ive had decent luck with this
<lanefu> Run good short thick usb cables. And oddly opi4 powered better via usbc.for.me
<Armbian-Discord> <T​onymac32> lanefu does the OPi4 have the load resistors to tell the supply it needs the juice? this was the thing RPi spectacularly failed at on their board
<sams> lanefu headless
<sams> that one only does 2.4a per slot though?
<Armbian-Discord> <T​onymac32> headless is helpful to limit consumption
<Armbian-Discord> <T​onymac32> I think only the 4 could stress that
<Armbian-Discord> <T​onymac32> are you attaching any USB things to the devices?
<sams> yeah portable drives
<sams> for backup archiving
<sams> sorry im in australia
<nekomancer[m]> antipodes in the chat
<stipa> yeah, hard drives are power hungry
<stipa> sams: your best bet is one shitty phone charger per hard disk
<stipa> if you don't want to go the Mean Well route
<stipa> and some soldering
<stipa> sams: your link is dead
<stipa> if you don't mind the noise you could use PC PSU
<stipa> or for some extra $$$ you coud buy a fanless one
<stipa> you don't need to deal with power cables for disks, you already get those with the psu
<stipa> shorting green wire to ground will turn on the PSU
<stipa> nice, beefy, PSU
<sams> stipa link may only work in aus, shrug but it says: max output 10A, with 'it can fast charge 4 devices at once with a powerful 3.4A output'
<stipa> 406 Not Acceptable
<stipa> that's the webpage error
<stipa> sams: idk, maybe there's somewhere else where you could find identical psu so that we can see it
<sams> this is a consumer powerboard with 4 USB slots
<stipa> try to save an image to computer
<stipa> and use yandex.com image search
<sams> on it sec
<stipa> i guess you could also use just a link to the picture as a search option
<stipa> but i guess yandex isn't in autralia so that could cause some issues
<sams> screenshot there
<stipa> i see, that 3.4A could be output through the power plug socket :/
<stipa> not per usb port
<sams> idk, its cheap i might pick one up in the morning.
<stipa> or 3.4A is shared between 4 USB ports
<sams> it says 10A max in specs
<stipa> maybe there are some reviews on YT about it
<stipa> no tmuch
<stipa> what disks and how much of them do you need to power
<sams> i think its 3.4A per USB slot with a max of 10A
<sams> each pi has 1 usb portable disk
<sams> one of them has a nas drive with separate power supply though
<stipa> it's hard to tell how shitty is that jackson thing
<stipa> there's no reviews
<stipa> like real ones
<stipa> well, idk, try it...
<sams> i think they a brand exclusive to this retailer, not sure
<stipa> it's ok for charging a phone, you know, but supplying constant current to a sbc and disks, dunno
<sams> yeah, for the price it cant hurt to try
<stipa> right
<stipa> it's a small space for 10Amps
<stipa> Mean Well is a proper brick
<stipa> and are considered as shit on the quality spectrum
<stipa> marketers will always lie
<stipa> 3.4 sbcs under some load will eat 5Amps for sure
<stipa> 3-4 *
<stipa> + disks
martinayotte has quit [Ping timeout: 268 seconds]
<stipa> tbh i have never measured it
<sams> even if i can put two devices on there it will fix the current siutation
<stipa> but the sound of HDD loosing power is a nasty one
<stipa> that's what i know of
<stipa> i have one psu for sby and one for 4 usb hub
<stipa> sbc*
<stipa> 4 port USB*
<stipa> it's ok in USB2 mode, haven't tried to saturate USB3 since it's not functional yet
<stipa> 2A PSU on USB3 hub
<stipa> 2 gigabit ethernet nics, wifi nic and hdd
<sams> two of my pi are idle most of the time an only do syncthing updates when files change, they on a 2.4A plug each
<stipa> yeah, it's hard to tell what's going on without measuring power
<stipa> usb power meters are pricey

<Armbian-Discord> <N​eonFetch> balbes merged that commit on armbian tv, he said at that moment that he would did the same for plain armbian. but never had anything around it since then. its experimental I guess, but would be cool to know his opinion . lately, he is a bit inaccessible
<[TheBug]> inaccessible only describes someone that wants to be accessed which you can't, I am not sure he wants everyone harassing him anymore, last I heard he to fed up with people complaining about his work and kinda went quiet soo
<[TheBug]> s/to/got too
<ArmbianHelper> [TheBug] meant to say: inaccessible only describes someone that wants got too be accessed which you can't, I am not sure he wants everyone harassing him anymore, last I heard he to fed up with people complaining about his work and kinda went quiet soo
<nekomancer[m]> N​eonFetch: what "that"?
<[TheBug]> ArmbianHelper: fail!
<Armbian-Discord> <N​eonFetch> take it easy
<Armbian-Discord> <N​eonFetch> I know the situation
<stipa> [TheBug]: try it one more time
<Armbian-Discord> <T​onymac32> lol
<Armbian-Discord> <N​eonFetch> if you are not on discord you are not able to know what I am referring
<Armbian-Discord> <N​eonFetch> I am talking about VPU
<Armbian-Discord> <T​onymac32> the RK one?
<Armbian-Discord> <I​gorPec> if it doesn't break anything ... just push the patch in
<Armbian-Discord> <I​gorPec> probably balbes forgot about
<Armbian-Discord> <T​onymac32> This should only be a DTS patch
<Armbian-Discord> <T​onymac32> and a kconfig
maigonis has quit [Quit: Client closed]
<stipa> what should i look for if i want to find out what has been fixed/added to armbian image for my board from version to version?
<stipa> like is there any file with the list
<stipa> i can't really get a lock on
<stipa> it's linux sunxi
<stipa> or should i just follow the kernel version and find that info here https://www.kernel.org/ ?
