Re: Mounting USB Drive

Sometimes you don't have to specify the filesystem. Try the following, just to see what happens:

Code: Select all

mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/usbhd
Incidentally, have you created /mnt/usbhd yet?

Re: Different IP Addresses on Different Networks

Try installing the avahi-daemon. sudo apt-get install avahi-daemon It will allow you to connect to your Raspberry Pi by typing "PiName.local" instead of the IP address. (Replace "PiName" with whatever the name of your Raspberry Pi is.) Check out this site for more detail on the setup: http://blog.ma...

Re: Omx player

You shouldn't need to use sudo to run omxplayer. Sudo is for when you need elevated permissions, such as changing or editing system files, etc. Also, if you don't enjoy typing file paths, but would still like to use omxplayer to play video, try following the steps shown here: http://jeffhoogland.blo...

Re: Can I do this off a Mac?

I concur. I've done everything on my MacBook Pro. If you have an older mac you may need a card reader, but apart from that you should be good. (I wonder if you could put the SD card in a digital camera and use it as a card reader... =O Might be worth a try...)

Re: Terminal off screen

Have you tried maximising the window? That should make it fill the available screen space... If that doesn't work, unmaximise it again, and hold down "alt". Then move the mouse over the edge of the window, and drag the window up past the top of the screen. This will allow you to use the resize the w...

Re: Second impressions

I had problems until I switched to an old apple usb keyboard (from one of the original iMacs!!!) and updated my kernel using Hexxeh's tool. I'm using a 2 amp iPad charger.

I had a similar problem. I think it's fixed now... I tried different power supplies and keyboards, and installed the latest kernel using hexxeh's tool, and now it works... I'm not sure which particular step fixed the problem though... =O

Re: Similar beginers Python tools for mac

If you want code highlighting, go to the Python website, and download the disk image installer for Mac for either Python 2.7 or 3.2, depending on which one you want to learn. If you run the installer, it should install a program called IDLE, which will give you an interactive prompt, and a text edit...

Re: Any what to do tutorial links?

Python on the Raspberry Pi should be the same as Python anywhere else... Just out of interest, what Python version do you have? Open up a terminal and type "python". This will load the Python interactive prompt, and at the top it will say something like "python 3.2.2". Depending on what version of P...
