Re: RPi2 SD card holder repair/part number?

When I broke a micro SD card slot on a Pi2 I carefully pulled out the little spring that ejects the card. The cards stay in just fine now. I thought of that but was afraid I'd damage the contacts inside. If you managed to do it I'll try again the next time I have to remove the card. Meanwhile, the ...

Re: RPi2 SD card holder repair/part number?

Thanks for the reply.

I have the skills and tools to remove and solder the part but the idea of using hotglue is brilliant and I happen to have all the tools for it. The hotglue is also removable stuff so changing the card later is possible.

Thanks alot!

RPi2 SD card holder repair/part number?

Hi I need to replace/solder a new SD card adapter in place. The holder is broken somehow and cards won't stick in. Can someone please, give me the manufacturer part code or info of a suitable replacement model to order one from somewhere(?). A model without the spring mechanism would be good. Thanks.

Re: Mediacom Bluetooth USB dongle and Rapoo E6700

I have the exact same problem with Rapoo 6100 keyboard: - RPi finds the device and knows its a keyboard but any attempt to pair fails. - I have Cambridge Silicon Radio dongle but tried with ASUS dongle too with the same result. - I use the Rapoo keyboard with my laptop so it is OK. - I can pair RPi ...

Re: C++ / camera and GPIO libraries for cross compiling?

It might help if you expand on it not accepting sudo. How do you know? Perhaps it displays an error message? Is sudo installed? Are you a member of the sudo group (/etc/sudoers)? It may be that sudo is not installed by default and that may be the reason, I saw something about that on some forum. I'...

Re: C++ / camera and GPIO libraries for cross compiling?

Hi, No - I don't expect them to "work" on another Linux box, just compile for the Raspeberry Pi's arm like the cross compiling does. I have no problem there. In my the Debian 8 I can't use sudo, it won't accept sudo command. That is why the build script won't work on my Debian installation on my PC....

C++ / camera and GPIO libraries for cross compiling?

I have a camera project started where I need to be able to read some triggering sensors from inputs as well. I initially tested the camera using Phyton (which I don't know at all) and I would like to make the actual project using C++ which I already I know. I've set up cross compiling using Eclipse ...

Re: Pure Python camera interface

Well, I just realized that the code must be run from command window and not from Python IDLE window. At least that's how I got it to run. Is there an easy way to break out from the camera loop in the same fashion as with using curses when using IDLE?

Thanks!

Re: Pure Python camera interface

You certainly don't want to use capture_continuous for that as under the covers it's setting up a encoder and destroying it again between each frame. To go as fast as possible you want to set up a video recording and extract individual frames. Thankfully with JPEG this is actually quite easy due to...
