Re: Pi Lite - support ideas

Hello, I've recently bought one of these from Maplin - it was going cheap - I think it has potential but as you said (13 months ago!) there's next to no support. I've just about figured out the syntax and have managed to successfully send text straight from Minicom and also run a few Python scripts....

Re: Running Idle as root from desktop

Re: Help with Ciseco XRF and Slice of Radio

Hi there, I've had a similar experience, having installed the Slice of Radio onto my RPi B+ and tried the various introductory exercises I was happy that everything was working. I then installed Arduino 1.0.6 on my PC and uploaded the Blink sketch. Two days later, I set up the RPi again and found th...
