Re: Kingston SDHC Woes

Ok further information, tried to run the osmc installer on the card and while the PI 3 did initially boot and started the installer it failed reporting "couldnt mount root fs".

So id say the card probably was never going to work.

Re: Starting 3 different script at startup

If you try and do stuff and it produces screens and screens of output, even lines and lines, unless there is a highly identifiable line in the output, or you are a genius at regular expressions, expects on whatever is held in the expect_out(buffer) are liable to be not very useful and/or miss matche...

Re: Starting 3 different script at startup

Ok so below is an expect script which runs ping and then does some stuff with the output. Ive been playing with expect and commands which produce multiline output. Ping produces single line results, using expect_background we can run expect while the command is still running (at least i think thats ...

Re: Starting 3 different script at startup

Depending on what you are trying to do you might be able to use expect to accomplish your goal. So expect can spawn processes and then waits for specific (or not so specific) output before then moving on, or looping or performing further actions and so on. So you can start a process, wait for certai...

Re: Dynamic DNS behind (Virgin) Cable Modem/Router

Hey I know this is an old thread but with http://freedns.afraid.org you dont actually need a ddns client, you can just refresh your ip using their curl script, provided on one of their pages when you log in. Saves compiling the noip client for the pi, or whatever. Also noip requires you to login to ...
