Re: Internet connection (with username and password)

pppoeconf is included in the package pppoeconf. If you cannot run pppoeconf, you will need to install the package: sudo apt-get install pppoeconf (Sorry, I am on an Ubuntu machine right now so I am just guessing it is the same in Debian) When run, it will ask you for the technical details of your co...

Re: Voltage TP1-TP2 low, power supply changed

There is a stable 4.95-5.10V on the cable (with the Pi powered and drawing 300-500mA), TP1-TP2 has lower voltages though.

Seeing the current subforum when in a topic

Sorry if it came up already - didn't find it with a glance on the topics in this subforum.

Re: Voltage TP1-TP2 low, power supply changed

It must have something to do with components getting warm, although I cannot feel any warm spot specifically. If the Pi is lying around a while, the first boot attempt is succeeding, while each further try will yield more errors like these: end_request: I/O error, dev mmcblk0, sector 67**** Error re...

Re: Voltage TP1-TP2 low, power supply changed

Thanks for your reply.

It indeed started on a very hot day. But it continues to be bad at ~18°C.
I will try your suggestions in the next days.

Could this drop really be related to the SD card?

Re: Camera module! (And a picture of JamesH)

Wonderful news. Hardware stabilization? Wow, great feature.

I am looking for a streamable 'first-person-view' off the Pi and am using a Webcam so far. I am eager to get rid of the big USB connector and get a camera on a small board (anything > 2MP will be great).

Voltage TP1-TP2 low, power supply changed

Since some days I am experiencing all kinds of problems that are most probably related to voltage. I was well off with an Ansman 2x500mA mobile charger. I thought it would have died when I measured TP1-TP2 of 4.6V. I bought another (5V/6V/7.5V/...) power supply which shall supply [email protected]. But the prob...

Re: Linux/C: Set baudrate before opening serial/UART; Servo

I started from your wiringPi serial.h and stopped at the point where the device would signal "Baudrate too high" on the open(). From there I started my own. With the work-around I found now, I could switch back to wiringPi (which I already use for GPIO).

Thank you for that library!

Re: Plotting pixels with C

There is probably a library out there that could give you a screen to paint on, but I would take advantage of all the available drivers and mature implementation (e.g. transparent tunneling over a network) of X. You can easily start an X session that will only show your application (fullscreen and w...
