Re: Tutorial to install Eclipse (for Java) on the RPI

I've installed Eclipse on my RasPi after updating to all the latest s/w releases (using Synaptic). Eclipse runs, slowly but what would you expect @ 700Mhz. However if I try to run "Help->Install New Software->Work with All Available Sites" it does run to completion, however if you then try to filter...

Re: Unexpected shutdown

My Pi has now been running for over 72hrs and not been detached from the router. I conclude that the DHCP lease time was the issue and on the Draytek 2820 by binding a MAC to an IP it effectively changes the default (gobal) lease time to unlimited (I didn't know this nor can I find it documented any...

Re: Unexpected shutdown

Ok, I've checked and the default LAN DHCP leasetime is 72hr. I'm not sure I've seen the network drop out after this time but it could be the case; I'll check. Since the Raspi is headless the only way of seeing what's happening is via a network connection and I can see the network has dropped out but...

Re: Unexpected shutdown

Some good ideas here. I recently moved the network connection from my 24-port switch to the ADSL router (the router is connected to the switch by a 1Gb uplink). Not sure whether the problem started after the change but worth investigating. Also not sure why the change would be the cause since the ro...

Unexpected shutdown

My Raspberry Pi seems to shut down on its own for no reason. It's run headless and I need it to run 24/7. Since it's headless the only way I can find out if it's working is by ping; there's no response. Also the router to which it's connected shows no connection. As I can remember the OS is Raspian,...

Re: any one get ssh x11 forwarding working

Working from mint 13 to raspbian using putty. Under Connections--> X11 set "X display location" to localhost:0 . Test with xclock & to see if working.
It would be most useful to say on which machine of mint 13 and the raspi you do this; it's not very clear from your post (don't assume it's obvious).

Re: My Project: Marantz SR5002 Controller

Yes the only ones I found were about $100 which would cost me about £100, too much for the simple task I had to do. If I'd found the one you mention I might have gone with that but on learning about the RPi I thought it would do what I want, was cheap, and could do a lot more, eg my AV amp has 3xHDM...

Re: My Project: Marantz SR5002 Controller

Thanks for that, looks interesting. However, for now I'll progress my RPi project as it will be interesting and fun getting acquainted with this new device. I'm sure you can do a whole lot more 'cool' things with a RPi, but then you can do a whole lot more 'cool' things with a PC other than word pro...

My Project: Marantz SR5002 Controller

My project is to use a RasPi as a LAN to RS232 i/f to my Marantz SR5002 AV amp. I currently have 2 MythTV systems, an 8.10 (the 'production' system) and an 11.10 development system, due to be become the production system. The 8.10 is RS232 connected to the SR5002. The 8.10 is powered down waiting on...

Re: Boot without monitor?

Thanks for the reply. The lantronix devices look interesting and ok for cost.  I'll certainly consider it, your report is encouraging. The RPi alternative could still be 'fun' to do.

Re: Boot without monitor?

<t>I'm thinking of using  a Raspberry Pi as the basis for an RS232 to Ethernet adapter. However, it needs to be permanently running and initially boot without a monitor. I guess the permanently on bit is ok as it seems pretty low power, but what about booting without a monitor?  Once booted, access,...
