Re: Post your Raspberry Pi server setup!

Mine runs an OpenTTD server pretty much 24/7. I have an LCD screen attached by the GPIO which tells me the currently connected clients and companies. It was a very fun little project to put together. The Pi itself runs Arch Linux because Debian is too slow on updating it's packages, and with Wheezy ...

Re: YOU SUCK: the venting thread

You know what sucks? iTunes. Bloated, slow, starts to die if you have many apps and music, even if you have a decent computer. I love my iPod touch and iOS, but iTunes... ugh. I can see why some people sell their iPods - they just don't want to put up with iTunes. Good god this. It never works, it'...

Re: Distributing an img file

Yes that should work. To write to an image, for Windows I think you would open Win32DisImager, type the name you want to give the image in the box, select the drive letter of the SD card and click 'Read'. On Linux, find the SD card's name (e.g. /dev/sdb or /dev/sdc - you can find this by running df,...

Re: A better gui text editor?

I quite like Gedit personally, though last time I checked I wasn't sure if it worked on the Pi. Just remember to turn the Line Numbers on in Edit > Preferences and it should be at a bit like Notepad++. Geany works to but that contains more stuff such as build and debug, which you may or may not find...

Re: Linux User & Developer #117 - PiPong

The most recent issue, #119, continues with this game, and although I haven't read it all the way through, it seems better than what you described, with code at the end of every point.

Missing arm_*.elf files (solved)

Hi all, I wanted to allocate more RAM to Linux for my RPi running the archlinuxarm-13-06-2012 image, as I am running it headless, so would like to give as little to the GPU as possible. However, in /boot, the files to change the amount are missing. How can I set the RAM to the highest possible for A...

XFCE no longer starts.

Hi all, I recently installed XFCE on the Raspbian image (using 'apt-get install xfce4 xfce4-goodies'). I gave it a test run, typing 'startxfce4' to start it. Everything worked fine, though a USB stick wouldn't mount. I logged off, went onto LXDE using 'startx' to grab the file off the memory stick. ...

Page 4 should probably be 'Windows'' (with an apostrophe at the end) notepad as opposed to what it is currently, " Windows notepad." To be pedantic it should be "Windows's Notepad". Just the apostrophe indicates the possessive of the plural. James's dog, has got the Browns' ball. Like that it would...

Re: Linus Magazines - Any Recommendations?

I had a look today and could only find two 'guides', one of which seemed pretty advanced, and the other very basic (basically 'look, what you normally do on Windows can be done on Linux for free!'), and both seemed very Ubuntu-based and didn't mention the R-Pi. Didn't see the one Montala mentioned.
