Re: Connecting PI to either a Netduino or Arduino board

<t>One thing I did not mention in my original question was that I was hoping to use Mono on my Raspberry PI...this would allow me to do .Net C# programming on both my Netduino and Raspberry PI.<br/> <br/> However, Mono does not support the ability to create an event handler on the Serial Port. I hav...

Re: Connecting PI to either a Netduino or Arduino board

<t>I have a netduino board. I have an RPI on order. I have trying to do some research on the best way to connect my Netduino to my Raspberry PI.<br/> <br/> Initially, I thought I would just connect using a serial connection from the GPIO pins on my PI (TX, RD) to my Netduino pins for TX, RD.<br/> <b...

Re: Fedora Desktop compatible to Raspberry PI device

<t>Thanks Prometheus for the great explanation about having Xfce and LXDE run on the same machine and you pick at startup... I get it.<br/> <br/> Also thanks to kyelo2 for suggesting Puppy Linux. I actually have another machine in the basement that is an old Windows 98 machine. When I found I could ...

Re: Fedora Desktop compatible to Raspberry PI device

<t>thanks very much for your reply. When I was reading about the different spins, I got the impression that LXDE and XFCE were compatible with smaller devices.<br/> <br/> I will probably start with XFCE as the fedora site describes it as a "complete, well integrated desktop"<br/> <br/> I realize tha...

The RPi will be my first Linux machine and I am looking forward to working with it. I have spent the weekend ...
