Re: Raspberry PI 2 - Instant on Dual Boot OS

Although I'm all for learning and will of course do so, my interest in this image is that it will do what I need out of the box right away AND that popular add-ons are already to go. Having used XMBC/Kodi for a couple of years now, having to manually add the add-ons each time I do a new install of ...

Re: Raspberry PI 2 - Instant on Dual Boot OS

1'st, i don't like using images from unknown/suspect/untrusted sources - you never know, what is inside, if public/private keys will stay unchanged, any backdoors or bots are installed. 2'nd, i see no really advanages of using that image... you can simply install NOOBS 1.4 lite, install OpenELEC an...

Re: Raspberry PI 2 - Instant on Dual Boot OS

Hello Steve. I'm currently downloading the image and waiting for a new 32g SD to arrive just for this purpose. Your last post said something about "having to tweak" due to overloading OS on RPi2. Is this still an issue? I certainly don't want to 'overload' my new little guy. Thanks for sh...

Re: Help - Kodi + Web Access

Just saw your post. I was thinking the same thing way back when, so I created a dual boot 32MB PI2 SDcard image which is already configured with lots of goodies. Not to take away from your personal enrichment of building it yourself which actually is quite fun but if you not into that and want somet...

Re: 11 year old girl complete newbe needs advice

I forgot you asked for more of a cookbook of what to get. Pi hardware: -Order the Pi 2 from the appropriate store near you: https://www.raspberrypi.org/products/raspberry-pi-2-model-b/ -Get a case with a fan (example) http://www.ebay.com/itm/Clear-Acrylic-Shell-Case-Computer-Box-Enclosure-Kit-for-Ra...

Re: 11 year old girl complete newbe needs advice

Kudos to your 11 year old!!! You go Girl!! Really the Raspberry Pi 2 environment brings back the computing enthusiasm when I built my first computer (13 y/o) the IMSAI 8080. and then went to apple I and II. I digress though.... Here are a few options: If you want her to learn programming you can try...

I have not seen any posts yet on how to install PORTIONS of kali-linux onto the Raspberry. So I offer this little step by step if your wish to begin a project of kali tool forensics without installing the full Kali-linux distribution for the PI.

Re: Raspberry Pi as an audio web server, not player

MINIdlna - may be another option which I have run on my pi. http://www.panticz.de/Install-MiniDLNA This allows you to use your PI as a video server as well as an MP3 server. Yet this is a server only, it does not provide the web front end for choosing. For that I would recomend the likes of KODI, XB...

Re: Raspberry PI 2 - Instant on Dual Boot OS

Folks that have downloaded the image. If you get a chance, come back to this post and ask questions and also let me know if the OS was helpful or just a passing curiosity. Im doing some more testing on it and finding the OS a bit 'bulky' which is causing a bit of overloading of the tiny Pi 2. I have...

Re: Raspberry PI 2 - Instant on Dual Boot OS

Would you mind explaining the technique you use to switch between firmware and kernel files in the /boot partition? I use a very crude manual technique to copy the files to the /boot partition (including a specific cmdline.txt file to specify which HDD partition holds the root fs) in order to suppo...

Re: Raspberry PI 2 - Instant on Dual Boot OS

Sorry for not posting sooner. The boot directs to a setting partition (This is the default NOOBS install) which then posts a menu 'installed_os.json file' [ { "description" : "A Debian wheezy port, optimised for the Raspberry Pi", "folder" : "/mnt/os/Raspbian"...
