Re: FIRST Robotics

It's my understanding that this year, you can use whatever part you like, with the exception of pre-assembled products. If you were to actually manufacture the Pi yourself, then it might be considered legal in the competition. I believe that electronics are allowed to be pre-assembled, but they hav...

Re: FIRST Robotics

Hey, just joined the forum when I saw this. I'm the team captian from FTC team #3802 in Altus, OK. I tend to agree with the posts that say you cant use it on your robot. What I'm trying to find out though is if there is a way to run the robots from the pi, as opposed to usuing a laptop. the reason ...

Re: Owncloud version problem

just download the tar file from owncloud.org and install that on the pi with the help of the manual. It's not as hard as it might sound. Basically you're just setting up a webserver and extracting the .tar.bz2 file to the directory where webpages are served from. If you want better performance, you ...

potential VPN performance bottlenecks

I have both a 256 MB Pi, and a 512 MB Pi. I've also got both Class 4 SD cards and Class 6 SD cards. I'd like to dedicate the minimum hardware possible to my VPN server. So are RAM or disk speed likely to have a large performance impact? There won't be very much load. Thanks.

Sharing SD cards between different Pi models

So, I've got a 256MB Revision 1.0 (maybe 1.1, I'm not sure) Raspberry Pi, and I'm considering purchasing a second one, which would of course have 512MB of RAM. As I understand it, the CPU/GPU memory split is basically changed by using a different kernel image. (Please correct me if I'm wrong, I'd lo...

Re: FIRST Robotics

I am on FTC team #365 MOE in Delaware. So, are you saying that you want to use the raspberry pi in competition? How are you going to power it? The only power sources you are allowed to have are the Tetrix battery (which is 12 volts, not the 5 volts the Pi requires), the NXT battery, and I think the ...

I thought of something like that, the only problem is that I don't have a flash drive greater than 4GB :-P I am guessing that would make your solution not work.

Cloning a larger SD card to a smaller one (with a catch)

So, I've found a couple of other threads that address cloning a larger SD card to a smaller one, but they require that both SD cards be plugged into the same computer at the same time. I only have one internal SD card reader, and I'd rather not have to buy an external one. Are there any ways to do t...

I use geany. It's very nice, it syntax highlights, and keeps a list of functions and macros for you. There's also an embedded terminal window, and it builds and runs your project for you. Anyway, use whatever works for you, cause if other people didn't use geany, I wouldn't have started using it. W...

Re: Which programs for Wheezy Raspnian?

If you want to install geany, just run: sudo apt-get install geany If you want an IDE specifically for python, you could try IDLE (pre-installed). That is better if you want the python shell though, so a plain text editor (like geany or leafpad) might be a better option. If you just want to program ...

This is great, any chance at an 8x11 version. It's a bit hard to come up with A4 stock here in the U.S.. I'd suggest downloading the .SVG version and changing the page size in Inkscape. It should fit ok if you delete the instructions or print them on another sheet. I went ahead and did this. I have...

It works for me on Raspbian as well, but isn't really playable because it pauses every 5 seconds or so. My pi is overclocked to 800 MHz. Does it take advantage of the GPU or hard fp?
