Re: SSH server with two ports.

Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to be possible for my router to do what you have suggested :( It appears that the port number cannot be mapped. So, I can set up a port forwarding rule like this: <External IP Address, port 40000> -> <Internal IP address, port 40000>. You see, if I specify port 40000 t...

SSH server with two ports.

I know this isn't a raspberry pi issue specifically - but I'm sure you guys will know about this sort of thing. My Pi has a ZD1211 USB wifi adaptor. It also has the eth0 ethernet port (obviously). Sometimes I run the Pi with the ethernet plugged in, and sometimes just with the wifi adaptor. But, not...

Re: /etc/rc.local won't save ??

Must be the SD card.
I've just got a new one, and it's working fine.

Problem solved then.

But, that Samsung SD card wasn't all that old - maybe 8 months.
And wasn't in continual use.
How long should these SD cards live for ?

Re: /etc/rc.local won't save ??

... but, maybe not.

I've just tried to edit files with only the USB keyboard plugged in - no webcam, and no wifi.
And, the SD card is still not saving the data.

So, perhaps I do need a new SD card after all.

It's part of the home security system. But, when I unplug the USB webcam I can edit the files OK, and the change...

Re: /etc/rc.local won't save ??

Huh, even more weird!

I just created a new directory under /home/pi and added some new bash scripts and stuff.
And, when I rebooted - they had gone too !!!!

Is my SD card going bad ?

Hi, This seems to be a new problem to me, I don't have this with my other 2 Raspberry Pi's. When I edit /etc/rc.local (as sudo, using vi), I can make changes OK, and save them OK. And, after saving I can 'cat' the file to see that it's just as I editted it. Then, I do 'sync' a couple of times to flu...

Re: Git problem.

I'm not sure if this is a proper fix for my problem.
But, I found a .gitconfig file, and a .git directory in my home directory.

I've renamed those.

Now, my SVN build tree is building as expected.


Thanks anyway.

Re: Git problem.

Hi,

That 'find' command finds loads of stuff, both files and directories called 'config'.
Much of it is totally unrelated to git or svn.

Are you sure moving or deleting those files and directories will fix my problems?

It looks to me like it would break lots of other stuff!

Did you ever get a fix for this sorted out?

I have a DVB-T USB stick plugged in to the RPi itself. Tuning is done using tzap. The red light on the DVB-T stick comes on almost immediately after running that tzap command - so I know the stick is tuned OK. tzap needs to keep running, so I either run it as a background '&' task - or login through...

Hi, Back again with the same question. I didn't get much help last time. Essentially, my problem is that omxplayer takes over 20 seconds to start. I'm using a DVB-T USB stick. Once the omxplayer decides to start I do get audio and video out OK though. I start omplayer with the --live option, and I'v...

I suppose it's possible for the RPi to send such a WOL message ?

Re: tzap, omxplayer, and channel change.

So, you are saying that omxplayer loads and shows video in 4 or 5 seconds.

I wonder why 500MB RPi unit takes 20+ seconds to start omxplayer !??!

Hi,
Are you sure about the --live option?
omxplayer responds with 'Unknown option".
I just checked the source code on Git, and it's not one of the options !
