Re: MyPi - New iOS App for Home Automation projects

Interestingly, came across this just now: http://www.instructables.com/id/Simple- ... ur-Raspbe/

The piece on installing and configuring the web server might be just what you need.

Re: Original Pi, can't upgrade OS

The original image was so old that the updates for it were out of date, you'd need to do so much upgrading that it'll be much easier to just start again (as you did). A dist-upgrade would probably be necessary, along with plenty of other work to get your old wheezy image updated to Jessie with Pixe...

Re: Original Pi, can't upgrade OS

I downloaded the latest NOOBS, loaded Raspbian, then had to do the upgrade from there to get the newest packages (I never start with an unpatched system when building a new device). It took well over 90 minutes to do all of that with this Pi. Power supply isn't the problem. It's a new, high-output m...

Re: MyPi - New iOS App for Home Automation projects

That's an interesting idea. Would take a little more work/doing on my part....I really like how hot button handles it - does the ssh handshake, enters the command to run a program, and actually returns results to me. That's a lot more overhead between the devices than loading a simple URL. You'd ne...

Re: Original Pi, can't upgrade OS

Thanks for the response. I have the original Pi. It's funny that you commented about the SD card because I replaced it with a new one last night and worked on it for HOURS and actually got everything done. It's great that these little things can do a lot (I've always loved linux for that), but it ta...

Re: Elescalador

Any chance your app can run a command line command? I have several things I can control just fine from an Android app "hot button", but the wife and kids cannot from their iPhones without typing in a ssh client - which really kills usefulness and I don't need them typing in command line anyway. Why...

Original Pi, can't upgrade OS

Hi, all. I have many, many years of working with Linux but zero experience with Debian. I used the NOOBS program to load Raspbian, set a static IP Address on the device, and attempted to do: sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade The update seemed to go fine but the ugprade crashes every time I at...
