Re: UK SMS Alerts for free

If I understand correctly your website uses a SIM with unlimited SMS messages? Unfortunately I suspect whatever network you're using has something in their TOS / fair usage policies which will mean this isn't allowed :( (generally they say the sim cannot be used as a gateway). Just thought I'd let y...

Re: StartX white screen problem (solved)

What speed (also known as class - the number in the circle) SD cards are you using? Try to get hold of class 6 or 4 - they seem to be the most reliable. Is there anything else at all unusual about your setup? (wireless/backlit keyboard/mouse, etc).

But the controller works up to 48V and 4A so the motor you use can be a rather powerful one.
And there's no clever way of running two motors off one controller? Shame...

Re: [Distro] Raspberry Server: Web Edition

But I have one SD for my Pi for quake, one for web, one for python dev... Also, the MK802 doesn't have any sort of GPIO, so I'd buy a pi anyway... If it can do a web server as well, then that's better!

Re: [Distro] Raspberry Server: Web Edition

There's two folders on the boot partition for 256MB or 512MB pies. Copy them to the root folder of the SD boot parition, then delete the stock start.elf and rename the start_240.elf or start_496.elf to start.elf and presto. The newer versions of Raspbian have made dealing with different memory mode...

Re: [Distro] Raspberry Server: Web Edition

Does it use the latest kernel (i.e. memory splits controlled from config.txt)? You'd only need one image, as you specify 16MB of GPU memory and the rest (224MB or 496MB) is assigned to the ARM. Also, have you thought of including raspcontrol? I expect some people would find it useful for remote mana...

Does this use Apache or ligthttpd? As I booted I noticed it starting lighthttpd, but it says in the OP that it has apache.

Also, I tried to visit the pi through it's IP (192.168.1.xxx), and it threw a wobbly - time to rebuild the SD card :L sorry, I didn't get a copy of the error messages...

You are asking for help in the first post, are you going to pay to that people? You are using open source software to do a remake of raspbian and asking for free help to others and then you are going to sell it? You've got the wrong end of the stick mate.

Re: Host magento on a Pi

If I remember right, magento is very resource intensive... And the raspberry pi isn't exactly powerful (for a webserver), so you might have some trouble. Try using the web server distro (http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewt ... 36&t=19702) on a 512MB pi and see how you get on...

Python without a mouse

I've been a bit of a banana, or should I say a raspberry.

I've taken my pi on holiday, to try and learn python, but I've forgotten the mouse! I haven't used python before, but I understand that I should use geaney from lxde. Can I use nano and the command prompt to try programming?

Thanks :)
