Re: Mini-ITX Motherboard

Mine arrived yesterday, I'm just waiting for the acrylic case and for someone to clearly say what the hell I use to power it, I have the power board that came with the £120 kit but no indicator as to what goes between the mains socket and the board. Laptop charger? kettle lead? hamster wheel? Other ...

Re: Got get_iplayer downloading from BBC iPlayer

It's been a long time since I played with get_iplayer, do the community-maintained versions still have the funky web GUI? running that from the Pi would be brilliant

Re: Automatic setup for RTL8188CUS based wifi adapters

If a script like this was available for the 8192SU adaptors I wouldn't have spent my first Pi Day fiddling with trying (and failing) to compile the realtek driver into a usable .ko file :(

You lucky, lucky 8188-ers

Re: Trying to Get an Asus USB-N13 WiFi-n Interface Up

I'm going to put together an end-to-end description about how to get a WiFi dongle working on the elinux.org/RPi_Hub wiki, starting with looking up the dongle info in dmesg, and all the way through running dhclient wlan0 and pinging networked sites. I love you! if only everyone working through prob...

Re: Pick a colour for a PiHouse

Well that was disappointing. Arrived very fast, so pleased with that, but when you sell something as being " clear laser cut acrylic", and someone buys it on the basis that it is " clear , laser cut acrylic", and your own survey says 57% of people want a clear case... It should b...

Re: My Design - Opinions?

I'd buy one. I cant imagine a low-strength magnetic strip will cause many issues

Re: Pick a colour for a PiHouse

Got my shipping confirmation for Farnell this morning - and ordered a PiHouse immediately afterwards (without the VESA plate for the moment)

Re: Pick a colour for a PiHouse

actually I like that there are VESA mounting holes - but that's because I might be using my Pi as a smartTV.

Re: Possible to run Ubuntu TV?

Couldn't you allocate a larger amount of swap space (say, 8GB on a flash drive) to compensate for the low on-board RAM? You'll hit a bottleneck on the speed at which pages can be transferred between the swap space and the RAM, but it could help make up the shortfall (I imagine it'll be a bit stutter...

Re: Introduce yourself!

Hey everyone! I'm Stefan, no Pi yet but it's due at the end of the month (ish, can never really tell with Element13 not much of a programmer, so I'll be tinkering with different hardware combinations. I raided the Verified Peripherals page of the wiki for an amazon order so I'm all set for when it a...
