Re: python-smbus in Jessie

Thanks - turns out the change to config.txt hadn't saved, so i2c wasn't actually enabled. :oops: Incidentally, I had been using this with Wheezy: dtparam=i2c1=on but the following now seems to be the default in config.txt in Jessie: dtparam=i2c_arm=on Is there a difference / preferred option? And if...

python-smbus in Jessie

Hi, I'm having some trouble using python-smbus under Jessie. The code worked fine in Wheezy but when I try it on a fresh install of Jessie I get: [Errno 2] No such file or directory I have python-smbus installed: pi@raspberrypi ~/AirPi $ sudo apt-get install python-smbus Reading package lists... Don...

Re: Changing socket orientation on a GPIO ribbon cable

Great, thanks everyone. That confirms what I suspected, but didn't have the language to accurately spell out! Looks like I'll just muddle through with the current setup.

Changing socket orientation on a GPIO ribbon cable

Hi, Apologies for what is probably a very simple question. I've purchased one of these GPIO "downgrade" cables , which is used to plug an add-on board (AirPi) into my RPi in this configuration as standard: http://www.haydnwilliams.com/temp/got.jpg but it would be better for my purposes if ...

AirPi - updated software

Just a note for anyone using an AirPi - I've just finished an updated version of the software, which adds a number of new features: - A host of 'UI' improvements, either clarifying existing output or adding more information for users. - Output plugins for Thingspeak, dweet, JSON, RRD and ASCII graph...

"Stacking" things on the GPIO pins

Hi, I was just wondering whether it's possible to 'stack' a number of different connectors onto the GPIO pins on a Raspberry Pi? I have an AirPi board which has a 28-pin connector, but I'd also like to fit an RTC module or an LCD screen too. The pins on the AirPi stick right through the board and ou...

Re: Making a FAT32 partition visible to Windows

Thanks both for the replies. I've tried using Lexar BootIt to flip the removable bit, but with no effect. I've also tried a method which uses dd to re-write the removeable bit (well, first byte on the drive), but that hasn't worked either. I'll keep looking at alternatives though; didn't know about ...

Making a FAT32 partition visible to Windows

I have the latest release of Wheezy installed on an SD card, so have a small FAT32 partition first and then the main ext partition afterwards. Does anyone have a foolproof method for filling the rest of the space on a 16Gb card with a FAT32 partition that is visible by Windows? By default Windows on...
