Automated Light control with Mobile Phone (Web Page)

Thought I'd share this here.

Might be a little bit advanced for some out there, but tried to make it as step-by-step as I could.

Re: How to Run NFS Server on Raspberry Pi

This is the command I couldn't find in this list:
sudo /etc/init.d/rpcbind start

That should help the portmap errors. Someone should create a step by step wiki for this though as this took many hours of searching

Re: text is too wide

Ok, this is what I had to do: /boot/config.txt disable_overscan=0 I was able to open the file, but I couldn't see it. So, I popped out the SD card from the Raspi and stuck it back in my computer and edited it. Perhaps someone can write a line to enter for users so they don't need to edit the file ex...

text is too wide

When I first boot Arch, the text is too wide for the screen.

I see:

"i login:"
"word:"

I'm not even at the point of installing X and the screen is too wide. How can I reduce it in size?

//edit: It's also too tall.

Cheers,

P

Notes:
Raspberry Pi
HDMI -> Panasonic TV

Re: Where are we?

<t>Thanks Liz.<br/> <br/> I\'m an ad man by profession and this project has a rare \"word of mouth\" buzz. I live in NZ and I heard people at the local computer store discussing this product the other day. I have to imagine as I sleep during the UKs daylight hours, I won\'t be able to purchase one o...

Re: Where are we?

<t>Like everyone else, I\'m desperate to get my hands on one (or more likely several) of these devices.<br/> <br/> Can you update the blog with where in the process the device is (in terms of getting it made and into the hands of people)?<br/> <br/> Probably like everyone else, I\'m interested to kn...

Re: are you spoiling it?

<t>This is just a point of view for consideration.<br/> <br/> For some time, I have been following the progress of the RPi. Everyday, as I check the forums and the front page I see new progress towards this device. But, with every passing post ahead of the final release I also feel a sense of loss a...
