Re: New RPi firmware with 3.6 kernel causing module problem

Re: apt-get update, apt-get upgrade - yes, I was too brief - sorry for any confusion. Interestingly while a warm reboot (via the reboot command) did not help, a full restart (from power off) seems to have 'fixed' this. When I say fixed, "sudo modprobe lirc_rpi" now runs, but /lib/modules still seems...

Re: New RPi firmware with 3.6 kernel causing module problem

Just hit this myself, trying to work out why my IR sensor had stopped working: $ sudo modprobe lirc_rpi libkmod: ERROR ../libkmod/libkmod.c:554 kmod_search_moddep: could not open moddep file '/lib/modules/3.6.11+/modules.dep.bin' $ uname -a Linux raspberrypi16g 3.6.11+ #538 PREEMPT Fri Aug 30 20:42:...

Re: I2C: How to connect multiple devices.

problem solved. is it possible, that the fact that I didn't solder the pins in GY-80 are causing so much problems? Is it necessary, or can I just plug it in? apparently it is necessary... Yes - I found that too, until I soldered the pins on the GY-80 board I couldn't detect the sensors. Simply slot...

Re: A DIY PoE solution

Basically there are four main possibilities 1: True PoE, this is the least risky soloution because it's got a load of protection systems built in but it requires relatively complex (and therefore relatively expensive) hardware at both ends to inject the power and to extract and convert it. Not trie...

Re: gps not working

I found restarting gpsd could help - this was using a USB-serial Microsoft GPS-360 dongle (blog post).

Re: Is there any Satnav software available ?

I have just installed Navit directly on the hard float wheezy Raspbian OS. It works except for some glitching with the map data files (needs checking what can be used / not used). Should work a treat! ... What kind of glitches have you seen? I've also installed Navit on the 'armhf' Raspian OS (blog...

Re: SATNAV on raspberry pi

Debian provides packages for navit, already compiled for the ARM. Raspian does too, e.g. try

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install navit maptool

Would love to get into the hobby but need advice on where and how people are doing this especially with the Pi. I've not act...

Re: A DIY PoE solution

But there is a bigger issue with running the Pi directly off a ghetto POE* system. The Pi is intended for a regulated 5V supply and this means you are likely to have volt drop problems running it though a long cable. ... I dunno how low the Pis 5V line can go before things start to flake out but I ...
