Then again, I work IT in a windowless basement, so that really wasn’t a problem to begin with.

@jyaw
that's a good idea! I'm certain I can't plug personal computers or peripherals into our network though. they'll find me quick.
Paul Martin
@Spazholio
Install it in a co-worker’s office. Then claim ignorance. =)

@Spazholio Why do you need the apple express? Why not just connect to your school's wifi?

@Spazholio I'm using Ubilinux still. It does BLE fine, but never could get BT tethering to work.
Paul Martin
@Spazholio
Oh, I do now. But initially, since we don’t use WPA2 (we use some 802.11x/PEAP setup) I couldn’t. The only way I could get the thing to connect was using Network Manager, and it didn’t lend itself to command-line configuration.
But…I got it. =)
@scottleibrand Rats. I was hoping that was an avenue to me getting openxshareble working.

I complied lynx so I could auth against our captive wifi portal.
compiled

…that’s dedication.
And then you scripted it to open a page, then tab a given number of times and “click” or something?
Eric Luhrs
@eluhrs
No, we only have to auth once every 6 months, then the system (packetfence, I think) remembers the MAC.
Paul Martin
@Spazholio
Ahhhh, ok.
Still. Nice. =)
Anyone know what this is? A quick Google gleaned this guy and I'm hopeful this is some kind of input file for yocto Python installation
Jarred Yaw
@jyaw
ah found the yocto package repository! http://iotdk.intel.com/repos/1.1/iotdk/i586/
and theres a pygobject in there
Paul Martin
@Spazholio
Really old version of bluez in there. Hmm.
Jarred Yaw
@jyaw
so I'm a novice at this stuff... the /etc/opkg/base-feeds.conf file has all the configured paths to the packages and you can do a "opkg list | grep -i <application_keyword>" to find what you want to install using "opkg install <application>". Just did a opkg install python-pygobject and it appeared to install... still get the same error though enfortunately
used the following link as that's what they used in the mmeowlink yocto doc http://iotdk.intel.com/repos/2.0/iotdk/i586

@Spazholio version of BlueZ on yocto is 5.37-r0, Adafruit BLE library mentions is relies on BlueZ of 5.33. What version of BlueZ is on your Ubilinux?

Question regarding TI flashing under windows

connecting the ribbon cable PIN1 (red) to the TI on Debug, red to PIN1, right?

....and now my question, needs the TI USB connected to the PC :question:

@xpucuto
I think the answer to you questions is yes ,
i was following Jesus instructions from here https://github.com/jberian/mmcommander/blob/master/INSTALL.pdf

@jyaw
at this point, I'm interested to hear if my issues with openxshareble are due to user error or yocto environment/openxshareble compatibility. Has anyone with yocto successfully used openxshareble?
@Spazholio I'm also wondering if I get those errors because I didn't forget the dex on my phone and somehow its re-pairing behind the scenes and openxshareble doesnt handle the exception of not seeing a device out there or something. If that's not the case, I'm going to ubilinux tonight and can let you know if I have any success.
Paul Martin
@Spazholio
@jyaw It's 5.40. I went with the latest I could get.
Jarred Yaw
@jyaw
ok, so that doesn't appear to be an issue. Not sure that versions are really an issue... did notice that bluez and python-pygobject dont show up when I do a sudo pip list, but they are showing up as installed if I attempt to reinstall the package via the opkg install <package_name> command... not sure if that could be an issue
Paul Martin
@Spazholio
Bluez wouldn't show up under pip list as it's not a Python package. The python-pygobject one...maybe beacuse it wasn't installed via pip?
Jarred Yaw
@jyaw
ah, i see

@eluhrs I actually meant you should run the ERF entirely off the Pi. So you'd plug the power/ground into the Pi's 3.3v and ground pins - so disconnect it entirely from cc-debugger

Is anyone uploading rig battery status to nightscout using the edison yocto 'battery-status' yet?
Eric Luhrs
@eluhrs
Battery-status always reads 100% for me. Probably because I have an adafruit charger between the battery and the Edison. Does your status change over time?
Matt Walker
@walker0
yep it does, I'm using the spark fun battery block , I believe the key is that you need the battery voltage to be on vsys
Eric Luhrs
@eluhrs
Is that a GPIO pin?
Matt Walker
@walker0
It is broken out on the mini breakout, J20 pin 1 , I haven't tried with the mini breakout but i'd presume if you use that pin as your V+ connection from your battery that you will be able to check the battery status using battery-voltage (just make sure not to send more than 4.2V to vsys)
Eric Luhrs
@eluhrs
Wonder if it would be possible to add this connection in addition to the adafruit charger.....
Matt Walker
@walker0
If you just disconnect the breakout from the standard terminals and solder to the appropriate mini breakout pads I think it should work

this is what I'm seeing with my setup using the battery block, it seems accurate, I checked with my multimeter and got 3685 which is close enough for me to be happy
Paul Martin
@Spazholio
I just had my 2500mAh Edison rig die after about 4 hours of being disconnected from external power. That’s extremely concerning to me since it’s supposed to last WAY longer (and I don’t have anything connected to it yet, either). Shame I can’t get the voltage command on Ubi because I’d certainly like to monitor it....
