Thanks guys. I guess I could just mount first partition and add ssh.txt file there. But I will try systemctl enable first. because I'm already poking on the second partition.

serial TTL?
you can use cheap USB to TTL converter in that case and code should still work.

Re: CM3 vertical socket

I used this one, but it's for DDR. So you need to widen the gap on the module to fit

Embedding keyboard

For a project I'm working on I need it to integrate a keyboard with raspberry pi. So before I started working on that project I did this as a sort of a proof of concept: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S9UfrUy_tqE It's a laptop keyboard connected to Arduino Pro Micro.

Re: rPi2 for embedded/industrial use

so maybe we should just gather $$$$$ for them to speed up and finance CM with rPi2 :D don't know if the 2 layer part is true, because when you need to have matched pairs it's a pain in the ass to trace those on 2 layers even on 0.6mm board. That's why it has to be at least 4 layer. 0.2-0.3 gap betwe...

Re: rPi2 for embedded/industrial use

I think this is an interesting idea, but would be better targeted towards hobbyists.

Re: rPi2 for embedded/industrial use

Only HDMI 1.3 is capable of iPad3 resolution. Not sure if raspberry pi would be able to drive 2048x1536 display.
Another option is to convert DSI to eDP. Also maybe a cheaper one and it can be tested with a separate board first.

Hey,

This weekend I returned to Scotland where I work.
I had a rPi record GPS data from start till end.

Here is a map of the trip: http://gis.red-mamba.com/csv.html
Might take few seconds to load the points on slower connections

You can solder 10 USB hubs together before you can wire those 2 extra USB ports :D Don't think it's worth the effort. Besides you need better PSU for extra USB ports so why not go other way around and have a stronger PSU for external USB hub and power rPi from that HUB. That was the idea behind my H...

Don't know if any1 done this before.

I created a script that installs and prepares everything you need:
#On RaspberryPi run
#wget http://goo.gl/QaXLfr -O btsync-install
#sudo chmod +x btsync-install
#sudo btsync-install

there is a start/stop script in /etc/init.d/btsyncd
