BarracudaDrive Reverse Proxy (view CCTV mjpegs in website)

Hi, I've been using BD for some years now - it's stable, fast & runs great hosting a family website on a Pi. It uses the CMS for pages and blogs on one duckdns domain name. I'd like to be able to display CCTV feeds from another house server (zoneminder) on a page so thought I'd be able to use the "R...

Re: Pi3 Jessie autologin to desktop fails

Re: Pi 3 Kernel Build

Thanks. I compared my kernel .config to the one in the Pi2 procedure and realised that the eGalax module is already in there. I eventually managed to get the screen connected to the Pi3 and after calibrating the axis it just worked. No more kernel build needed.

Re: Working 7" HDMI Touch Screen with instructions

Hi,

I have an eGalax touch screen (lsusb indicates such) and if I follow the instructions I get "Error:No calibratable devices found" when running xinput_calibrator. I'm running 2014-01-07-wheezy-raspbian.

I think I maybe a few modules short in the kernel.

Any ideas?

Cheers, Steve

FTDI drivers

Hi,

FTDI support have just let me know that there are some FTDI drivers specifically for the Pi. I'll hopefully try them this week.

Try here: http://www.ftdichip.com/Drivers/D2XX.htm

Big thank you to FTDI for these.

Re: ttyUSB0 FTDI crash

Prolific RS232<->USB are working... but as I posted elsewhere, my ttyUSB1 sometimes disappears and a ttyUSB2 is created. It seems to do this whenever it wants to whilst the Pi is running unattended on my LAN. I'll have to dig around some logs.
