Re: Berryboot v1.1 - Boot menu / OS installer

Hi,
Does berryboot have python support? And also, is it possible to run a script every time a BerryBoot RPi is started? I would like to run a python (or similar, if unsupported) script on startup in order to control the BerryBoot menu.

Thanks!

BerryBoot Image RPi2

Hi, I have been trying to adapt an XBian image for BerryBoot to use in my RPi2 with squashfs and kpartx, but it seems that the RPi2 images' filesystem is different and I keep getting errors either when trying to make the squashfs image or when trying to run it on BerryBoot (after some experimenting,...

Re: Error con BerryBoot

Hola,
Conseguiste solucionarlo? Estoy en las mismas y me da el mismo error que a ti, "unable to locate sbin/init...". En mi caso intento instalar XBian mediante BerryBoot para la RPi2. Si al final lo conseguiste, o alguien tiene algo que aportar, lo agradeceria bastante.

Gracias!

Re: Raspberry Pi + Arduino + Water pump

Maybe I am getting something wrong but... Why do you need an Arduino in there? Why don't you just replace, in the first circuit you show, the Arduino pin with the RPi pin? I mean, just connect the transistor to the RPi GPIO and you can control it via your Web Interface or whatever.

Re: How to setup Huawei E3531 in Raspbian NOOBS

Can't you just connect the RPi via ethernet to your router in order to install the necessary packets and do the configuration?

Re: BerryBoot+XBian in RPi2

Did you make the squashfs image? I would recommend putting everything in NOOBS. There are instructions on the NOOBS github page in the advanced section. I got errors before getting to the part where I should use squashfs. For example, following this tutorial: http://www.berryterminal.com/doku.php/b...

BerryBoot+XBian in RPi2

Hi, I have BerryBoot running on my RPi2 with OpenELEC and Raspbian installed, both from the Berryboot installer. However, I want to try Xbian, so I decided to add it to BerryBoot. I tried following several tutorials, but all of them ended up giving me errors with "file/directory not found" issues. I...

Re: Header pins for RPI2

Yes. It's 0.1" or 2.54mm. You can measure this on your Pi. So they will fit my Pi GPIO, right? The part you link to is male to female. Don't you need female to female? Yes, I do need female to female. However, i haven't been able to find such a thing, so getting 2 pieces of 2x20, and stacking one o...

Re: Header pins for RPI2

Hi, Thanks for the fast reply. Sure, I could buy a ribbon cable, but that would make me have all the pins going to a breadboard or something like that (not to say most ribbon cables are about 10$, when I could buy this for less than 0.60$). So thanks for the alternative, but I am looking for somethi...

Hi, I want to "turn" the male connectors of the GPIO into female ones. I want to do it as cheap as possible, so I thought of buying 2 pieces of this: http://www.aliexpress.com/item/1-PCS-2x20-Pin-2-54mm-Double-Row-Female-Pin-Header-Best-high-quality/32292880834.html So I can insert the male pins fro...

Re: SPI-based Logic Analyzer

Hi, Thanks for the answers. I had already seen the Panalyzer project you mention, but according to Github notes the maximum sampling frecuency is 1MHz (I guess using a Linux distro and stopping interrupts may not be the most efficiente way? not to mention the project was made for RPi1). The PiScope ...

I dont know if this post is much of an "Advanced" post, but I wanted to get an answer from someone who really knows what he is saying, so I guess this is the place to post it. I've been thinking of a way to create a Logic Analyzer with a RPi2, and after some research the best I found is a few MHz sa...

Re: Networking Two PIs without internet or wires

Hi, If there is no problem of objects between both Pi's, you could just use an IR emitter/receiver pair in order to send messages to each other. It is very inexpensive and should be quite easy to do. If you want them to be able to communicate even between different rooms, you could use some RF modul...

BerryBoot: SD or USB?

Hi all! I am planing on installing multiple distributions in my Raspberry Pi 2. For now, I will start with RetroPie, Raspbian, and OpenElec. I thought of using BerryBoot for this job, and I've seen you can choose to install the distributions either on the SD card or on an external USB flashdrive. I ...

Re: Trouble setting up VNC to run at boot on B+

Because what I've got now is that when I remote in I get a completely separate desktop, and I'm hoping to change that. As far as I know, you can't do that with tightvncserver. If you want to remotely control the desktop you are displaying on the monitor, you have to go for x11vnc. Follow this link ...
