mithropaddatrapper: ping?03:46
paddatrappermithro: pong04:35
mithroI added a bunch of issues and stuff to
tpbTitle: GitHub - timvideos/HDMI2USB-fx2-firmware: HDMI2USB firmware for the Cypress FX2 found on the Digilent Atlys and Numato Opsis boards. (at
mithropaddatrapper: Also merged your pull request04:35
mithropaddatrapper: You should accept the invite you just got04:36
paddatrappermithro: thanks I did. Will add the details to the other repo when I get to varsity04:36
*** sb0 has quit IRC04:37
paddatrapperI installed the udev rules package for Debian, but it still requires root for install, is there something I'm missing?04:37
paddatrappertumbleweed: ^^04:37
mithropaddatrapper: Are you in the correct group?04:37
mithrocheck the permission of the file04:37
paddatrapperPermissions are root:root04:38
mithroHrm -- it should be MODE:="0660", GROUP:="video"04:39

paddatrapperI'll do some more debugging in a bit. I am a member of the video group04:40
tumbleweedpaddatrapper: for installing what?04:59
tumbleweedthe permissions are set for using the device, not flashing it04:59
tumbleweedrequiring root for that is pretty sensible, I THink04:59
*** sb0 has joined #timvideos05:10
paddatrapperInstalling the hmditousb-udev package, which is supposed to allow flashing as non-root05:28
tumbleweedI didn't intend it to05:29
tumbleweedI don't think?05:29
mithroflashing verses loading05:29
tumbleweedalthough, reading the rules, it should05:30
tumbleweedwhich usb device ID are we talking about?05:31
paddatrapperJust driving. Will be back in about 30 minutes05:32
* paddatrapper loves morning traffic...06:04
paddatrappertumbleweed: I was under the impression that the udev rules would allow using the hdmi2usb-mode-switch command to load new FX2 firmware as a member of the video group, which I currently am unable to do06:06
paddatrapperYou have packaged the udev rules as hdmi2usb-udev, which I installed on Debian sid, or are those Debconf specific?06:07

tumbleweednope, not debconf-specific06:26
tumbleweedthere's certainly nothing to set such permissions on the 5442 device06:26
tumbleweedoh, no, that's done via ID_HDMI2USB/106:28
tumbleweedso, what are the permissions on the dvice?06:28
paddatrapper-rw-rw---- 1 root video 4096 May 19 08:03 /sys/bus/usb/devices/1-2:1.0/driver/unbind06:31
paddatrapperlet me just test again... as that is now right06:31
tumbleweedwere you in the video group when you logged in?06:31
tumbleweedcommon unix mistake is adding yourself to a group, and not logging in again06:32
paddatrapperlast time I tested the device was root:root06:33
paddatrapperworking now, thanks :)06:33

mithropaddatrapper: So, you should be looking at getting the serial port working07:09
paddatrappermithro: ok cool. is that serial over the FX2 chip or via a separate UART -> USB board07:10
mithropaddatrapper: I think I sent you a pmod FTDI?07:10
paddatrapperyes you did07:10
mithropaddatrapper: you want it for being able to output debugging information while the board is doing other things07:11
paddatrapperok cool. I'll get that working then07:11
mithropaddatrapper: look at softserial stuff07:12
mithropaddatrapper: have to be careful though, as you can end up effecting things by adding debug prints by making them to take to long07:13
paddatrappermithro: softserial? All the links I'm getting are for the arduino SoftwareSerial library07:14

CarlFKxfxf: It's like going camping with all the benefits of staying home16:50
CarlFKFB wouldn't let me post that.   or anything.   "you have too many tabs."16:51
xfxfCarlFK: you Americans and your stove kettles17:01
xfxfmost Australians didn't know that electric kettles aren't a thing here until about 3 months ago when it blew up on social media17:01
tumbleweedyou can get real kettles here. Even some decent ones17:01
xfxfIt is literally amazing to us :P17:01
xfxfnobody uses electric ones!17:02
* tumbleweed does17:02
tumbleweedwe have one at the office too (but that could be because there's no stove top there :P or because it's a south african company)17:02
xfxfyes but I assume you're used to using one :P17:02
xfxfI asked my airbnb'er about it and was stared at blankly17:03
tumbleweedI've actually got one at an airbnb, before17:03
tumbleweedbut that could have been because it was in chinatown. It was a weird kettle that was clearly meant for tea17:04
