Re: Bluetooth CambridgeSiliconRadio : Pairing makes Kernel c

I have the same problem, also happens on my Debian 7 pc but doesn't happen in Ubuntu 13.10 - must be fixed in a newer kernel release. Perhaps this is related:

Simple quiz program (reads question file) in C

Hi, I've made a simple multiple-choice quiz program in C for the Raspberry Pi. It reads questions from a file, and asks them in a random order before giving the percentage correct and score. The code needs tidying up (when I have more time!), but hopefully it should at least compile and run ok. At s...

Re: English Baccalaureate

This was a great idea, considering the poor recognition ICT has at universities, providing something to actually interest students and get them involved into proper computing. But there were terrible flaws with Baccalaureates, putting the most capable above those who struggle in school and reverting...

Re: New Raspbian Image

You would need to install the scsi modules, like this: http://packages.debian.org/search?suite=default§ion=all&arch=any&searchon=names&keywords=scsi but for Raspbian of course. I haven't had to use scsi myself, so haven't tested this, and don't know whether or not it would work with the Raspberr...

Re: New Raspbian Image

Do you mean firmware for the device? Debian firmware is mostly documented here: http://wiki.debian.org/Firmware/

If you knew which firmware it required, I may be able to make a custom image for you.

Re: Wireless Internet Connection Sharing via Ethernet in *bu

Great tutorial, I was already aware that you could do this, but it makes it very easy for beginners to link their pi's via ubuntu.

Re: New Raspbian Image

Both methods would safe unused space, yours a bit more foolproof than mine. Although the advantage of skipping unused space is that the image would easily fit on a smaller SD Card (e.g. 2GB), with still leaving extra space.

Re: New Raspbian Image

Hi, the initial admin (root) password is raspberry (first boot). You enter this at the prompt which says: 'Give root password for maintenance' (it is possible to disable this but not recommended, since it would make the system vulnerable). After this has run, on next boot in a tty: Username: pi Pass...

Re: New Raspbian Image

It may also depend on what compression you are using - bzip2 is better than gzip (of course!), and 7zip is supposed to be better than bzip2 (though slower). 3.7GB down to 543MB is still pretty good though.

Re: New Raspbian Image

Did you actually shrink down the filesystem (rootfs) first? Give your output of parted /dev/<device>, after you have changed units to bytes (u b) and printed the partition table. Also, for better accuracy ensure you use bytes - MB will not always ensure that the end location is actually the end of t...

Re: New Raspbian Image

Are you sure the SD Card's device is /dev/mmcblk0? On Linux distros i've used (Ubuntu, Debian), SD Cards plugged in are just detected as normal devices (/dev/sdb, sdc, and so on). /dev/mmcblk0 is usually only if you actually boot the system from the SD Card itself, with the card containing the rootf...

Enter 'u b' in the gparted prompt, to change units to bytes. Then do 'p' to ...

Suggestions for building

Hi, When you build the Raspbian packages, it may be good to omit certain ones - for example, ones that only support opengl and not opengl es, ones that require a faster CPU to run properly than the raspi has, and ones that simply don't run at all on its hardware. It would save repository space for u...

Re: Supertux and Supertuxkart not running?

It is probably due to /usr/games not being in the search path. You may have to run the games with the full executable path - for example, for supertux run /usr/games/supertux. I doubt supertuxkart will work though, as it uses normal opengl, and the raspberry pi only supports opengl es.

Re: Getting pcsxr to work

I managed to get the svn version to build, but when running games it gives the same error. It doesn't look like pcsxr will run on the Pi without some major rewriting.
