Re: PiKrellCam: motion vector detect + OSD web interface

Indeed, wicked easy. I usually clone Jessie lite for new Pis, with the stuff I need (like ssmtp) but this time I built from scratch (11-25 version) on a Pi3 booting from USB SSD. Let's just say I missed more than few things :). Thanks again.

Re: PiKrellCam: motion vector detect + OSD web interface

Thank you Rainer, you put me in the right direction. When I tried command line mpack it failed because ssmtp was not installed on this Pi. Thanks again to you and Bill.

Re: PiKrellCam: motion vector detect + OSD web interface

Rainer, thanks for your reply. Definitely an oversight on my part. Unfortunately there's still something amiss. I've tested sending email to my yahoo and gmail accounts using Python 's SMTPLib package, that works fine from the same Pi. There's got to be another typo somewhere; I'm pretty sure that's...

What an amazing piece of work Bill. Thanks to you I just ordered my 10th and 11th Pi Cameras :) I'm having just one minor issue that I can't seem to figure out. I'm trying to send an email using on_motion_preview_save. From looking at the log all looks OK but I never get an email (1 yahoo and 1 gmai...

I would assume that code with that level of intelligent should be able to detect the cpu type and configure itself appropriately?

Re: New Raspbian release "2016-11-25"

I think it's a good decision for the Pi ecostructure. Hope the gaggle IoT device manufacturers out there follow your lead. What collections of morons decided that was a good idea? How brain dead is that? I was one of the collection, and I stand behind the decision. We have a responsibility to protec...

MCM clearly messed up their new page. If you read the details (below above what you quoted) it seems they are planning to sell the version with the Pi3 SOC in ~97 days.

Look closer
The updated Pi 2 Model B design is based around a Broadcom BCM2837 SoC (same as the Pi 3) Quad Core ARMv8 processor running at 900 MHz just like the original Pi 2.

Same here. I blame it on aging highly functioning brain cells, starting to fade away, lots of that happening, apparently.
