webdav using lighttpd on pi zero w

I picked up a pi zero w on amazon, and started playing with raspberry pi/linux for first time in a couple years... I'm trying to setup a webdav server using this guide: https://nerd.one/how-to-setup-secure-webdav-on-raspberry-pi/ (I haven't gone as far as setting up a certificate/ssl) when testing t...

Raspbian “wheezy” - WPA / TP-Link N (USB)

Raspbian “wheezy”; latest being 5-25-2013 TP-Link Nano USB N: TL-WN725N v2.0 I'm a bit perplexed, and not sure how to fix it. I installed the latest wheezy image (5-25-2013) and this adapter (TP-Link Nano USB N: TL-WN725N v2.0) was the best option available locally. The v2.0 needs module 8188eu, acc...

Re: anybody working on a standalone in-car player?

I'm definitely considering the lcd as part of my introduction back into electronics.. But waiting on the stock (again).. Its nice to have the how-tos on adafruit for beginners like me. bluetooth shouldn't be too difficult once its running.. But haven't had a lot of luck coding in the past. I might s...

Re: anybody working on a standalone in-car player?

I have a mini bluetooth 3.0 dongle, simple and small.

My own personal wishlist would have simple "media control/keyboard": play/stop, rew, fwd and a safe power down.. But I don't have any idea how to start..

Re: anybody working on a standalone in-car player?

I can see, there could be some concerns with that. A bluetooth connection or usb->audio might work... Maybe GPIO?

anybody working on a standalone in-car player?

Just an idea I had the other night. I've been looking around, but didn't find what I was looking for... I would think with some tinkering, a raspberry pi /w lcd, some code and a hd would make a good music player for the car. Especially for audio gurus who like lossless audio instead of mp3, .aac.. J...

Re: investment $$ for electronics newb?

I think I have a small shopping trip todo lol I've needed a good wire cutter for a while anyways but the rest isn't that much. I have a 15/25w "pencil" style iron. Its probably not the best but it should work. We have mostly hardwood floors where I'm living and I have a fire extinguisher in the four...

Re: investment $$ for electronics newb?

awesome! I've always wondered if it required an osciliscope, or something more expensive.
I have a decent iron, and meter. So a few odds and ends, and some first aid and I should be ok.

I've always wondered, but I thought it'd be a stupid question & probably wouldn't get replied

Thank you

investment $$ for electronics newb?

maybe this is a fairly open ended question, but I'm wondering what kind of equipment a newcommer would need to tinker with the gpio boards, breadboards, etc...? I'm wondering if a person needs something more than some time and a solder iron? There are plenty of projects/how-to's and I'd eventually l...

Re: default debian install on raspberry pi?

I've given up, for a time, to get deb working. Since my netbook was powered (partly) by ubuntu it would have been nice to have all apt-get.. But I used arch for a 1yr or two previously so at least no real learning curve to pick it back up. Haven't needed to use AUR and boot time is a great feature f...

Re: default debian install on raspberry pi?

I've thought of arch... I have more than a passing familiarity with it, pacman, etc..
but the rolling update/package model kind of cheesed me off with "homemade" stuff
(aur, etc..) so I left for debian.

I have used the installer actually. It works up to a point and then stalls

default debian install on raspberry pi?

I have been fiddling with debian since i got my raspberry pi. With all due respect to the "raspbian" distro it's been a very fustrating time. I just want a "default", no frills install of fresh debian goodness. The default image wasn't to my liking, so I went to http://www.raspbian.org but several t...

Re: X10 control

thanks for the post. One of the main reasons for my (first) raspberry pi was for home automation. I'm using it for half-a--ed security system (when doors open, room occupied) and lights. So far I used a laptop and either had weak signal because of position or used a ethernet -> usb adapter. Hopefull...

Re: new

a day or two honestly

They seemed to leave the architecture open enough for expansion. Hopefully they also start selling those expansion boards.

Re: new

I'm crossing my fingers and hoping my devices are supported as easily as they are in linux. I'm interested to bringing this into a electronic hobbyist friend of mine and see what can be ma...
