ESP32 IDF master update troubles (and fix)

I am using ESP32 IDF for some private experiments. (more info later)

I really like it, not like some Arduino hobby IDE, that is a  half done, non-professional project.
I see a lot of people writing stuff like "do ESP32 in Arduino" this is completely backwards, you should avoid anything Arduino-related. You can not use Arduino in a real project, it can not be controlled, it is doing "magic" things and breaks everytime. You guessed it: I do not like it. ;-)

The ESP-IDF works really well uses cmake, is well documented, I use visual studio code insiders or clion van jetbrains to coordinate my coding and GIT to store my stuff.

I am really impressed with how well it works. Including flash-upload, debugging all works fine.

A few days ago I updated the IDF to the latest version and got errors:

$ git checkout master
$ git pull

$ git submodule update --init --recursive


error: Server does not allow request for unadvertised object 7f8c86e501e690301630029fa9bae22424adf618
Fetched in submodule path 'ext/tinydtls', but it did not contain 7f8c86e501e690301630029fa9bae22424adf618. Direct fetching of that commit failed.

I never have seen that before...

Some time spent digging arround on google revealed a solution here :

It appears some module has moved its github location.
I can not build, even when I disable libcoap in my project, so I had to fix this issue.

The FIX :
Go the correct directory and tell git the origin

~/esp/esp-idf/components/coap/libcoap/ext/tinydtls$ git remote set-url origin

Then update everything again.

~/esp/esp-idf$ git submodule update --init --recursive

remote: Compressing objects: 100% (5/5), done.

Now all is fine with the world again.
Hope this helps someone, I spent quite some time find the right solution.
Happy coding,

I never got an email? Did it go into the spam-filter or was it not sent. We will never know. Maybe a subject using #oetelx would help to pass through the magic gateway.

Denon DHT T100 DESIGNED TO FAIL : bad caps (ceramic caps this time)

A friend gave me a Denon DHT-T100 to look at.
Do not spend much time on it.. ok.

It had a problem, it started clicking and ticking after power on, and after some time.
(a so called intermittent problem)

Sometimes it did not tick or click, but it was basically not usable.
The clicking had a sharp click in one channel and repeated after about a second, then sound recovered and it would click and drop out again.

He told me, do not spend any time on it, yeah, right. ;-) like I would give up after 15 minutes.
I wanted to know what was going on with this thing, I found some schematic online and started measuring the usual things.

The power supply, 24V did it drop down when a tick occurred ? Difficult to find out because sometimes the thing would play for hours without a glitch.

I eventually found out the 24 V PSU, the step down SMPS on board and the LDO's were all ok, all power rails remained within spec, but it still glitched sometimes. (while power was ok)

I investigated methodically,…

Raspberry Pi, PyFace Digital, the lost documentation, I found it finally

The Raspberry PI or R-pi from is well known these days.
It is not an accident that I have one, I have been doing Linux stuff since 1991, and professionally since 1996 I can not skip over these developments, have to keep up with the new kids. :-)
Times have changed, hardware has become very affordable, everybody knows the Arduino, Raspberry Pi and Beagle-Bone-Black (BBB). Not everybody knows the stuff that aka Acme-Systems and aka Olimex make, so I will endorse them here.
Since I am an engineer I expect to connect switches and relays to the boards and some documentation with products, not so with the "PiFace Digital" board, it comes without serious documentation, not a even the schematic. All links on their blog point nowhere. People asked them many times, yet nowhere is the schematic to be found.

I finally found some info after hours of google-work, someone made a copy!

Nederland van het aardgas af, dat schiet lekker op (NOT!)

Om dingen even in perspectief te plaatsen moet je gewoon even wat berekeningen maken.
We gaan Nederland van het aardgas afhalen (de burgers) omdat?

In USA fakkelen ze 2123763,4944 m3 aardgas af per UUR
(bij winning van olie, gas is ongewenst daar, opslag niet handig, goedkoper om te fakkelen)

1.8 miljard cubic feet per dag...

Ons Nederlandse gasverbruik (huishoudens) is : 1500 m3 per jaar per huishouden

Even rekenen 2.1 miljoen m3 per uur, dat is

24 * 365 * 2.100.000,00 = 18.400.000.000,00 m3 aardgas affakkelen per jaar

(even de rekenmachine pakken)

18.400.000.000 / 1500 => aantal huishoudens Nederland

dat is voor 12.3 miljoen huishoudens (met gasverbruik van 1550 m3/jr)

Naast het opbranden lozen ze ook nog gewoon aardgas direct in de atmosfeer. (genaamd Venting)

Waarom moet ik ook alweer van het aardgas af?

Niet voor het milieu en de toekomst van onze kinderen, daarvoor helpt het helemaal…
