NOOBS, FAT error and 0MB Space

I have a 16GB Kingston MicroSD (B+) - new-in-box I decided to try NOOBS on this Pi (my first B+ model, I have a couple other original models). Using a Mac (OSX Yosemite) I unzipped and copied the files to the card and it booted fine, recognizing the wireless keyboard/mouse USB dongle and allowing me...

Re: Wireless Internet Bridge?

I've used Tomato on an ASUS RT-N16 router to bridge an entire wired segment to my main gateway, but encountered some issues with MAC addresses and packets at that layer (ARP). This was solved by deleting the ARP cache on the main gateway every three minutes using a scheduled task on the main gateway...

Re: MB with SATA and 1 GLAN - possible??

Just FYI, the CuBox http://archlinuxarm.org/platforms/armv7/cubox has both sata and GbE, only problem is that it costs 139 USD (and the CPU is quite slow for being that expensive). I'd really love a board with a dual/quad core 1.5ish GHz processor, >1GB RAM, 2-4 SATA ports and GbE. Throw it into a ...

You would basically be losing the video and larger RAM in return for a more I/O-friendly device. Pretty easy to install ArchLinux on them (...

Re: using the RPi as a plex media server?

Yeah, I follow that thread. People have gotten some headway using ArchLinux on the Pi. Again, any "porting" is going to be under the control of the Plex company. There is no source code to be had for anyone outside that company to port. So either the binary can be made to work with some configuratio...

There are not currently any ARM binaries for any flavor of real Linux; there are two ARM installs for some of the NASes, but that's it - the Linux binaries are all for Intel.

Re: using the RPi as a plex media server?

Plex is not open source, so getting a version of the server (or the player) is completely dependent upon the Plex company. They DO have ARM versions for some of the NAS appliances, but it is my understanding that they don't do transcoding very well because of the processor power required. A number o...

Extremely unlikely. RT is only available to device manufacturers, so you would not likely be able to get a license. Even if the RPF or whoever is considered the manufacturer were to apply for a license, it also requires a UEFI boot firmware and a much higher level of ARM core. The RPi is also extrem...

How do you know? Have you verified that they are indeed booting 17 minutes later? The RPi doesn't have an RTC, so if you are logging times before it has set its clock , the timer could be off if it is setting itself according to (approximately) last shutdown time. http://packages.debian.org/unstable...

I would go with element14/newark. They seem to fulfill orders regularly and do not appear to have a huge backlog - it might take a few weeks but nothing like the people who have been waiting months for RS.
