Re: Using the Pi in commercial projects?

So if I "only" embed the Pi inside my product to supply the display function (and disk storage of data) but with no reference at all to there being a Raspberry Pi board inside then i am good to go?

Schematic diagram of the Pi?

Where can I find a schematic diagram of my Pi board so I can see which pins on the connectors have which function???? I received it on last Monday and I have managed to start it headless (I have no monitor or keyboard for it) using the Wheezy image (with SSH enabled by default) and PuTTY on my Win7X...

Re: Resizing Sd card partitions on windows.

I have no GUI access, just SSH via PuTTY....
So I need a commandline command to find out.

Using the Pi in commercial projects?

Am I allowed to use the Pi in a commercial product?
Say I have a product that is lacking a GUI front, could I then embed the Pi and hook up a monitor to it with suitable programming to display what I need and then sell the product?
Is there a limitation to commercial usage?

Re: Resizing Sd card partitions on windows.

Does this mean that my Wheezy image, which was just 2 GB will now have expanded to use all available space on my 4GB SD-Card? How can I check if this is the case? I don't have a monitor so I am running headless by connecting with SSH through PuTTY via the network. What I mean is how can I find out h...

Re: Headless minimum hardware start?

FINALLY! :D I found a bag with SD-cards in my laptop case and among these was a SanDisk SDHC 4GB disk. So I imaged Wheezy onto this disk and then opened it in my Ubuntu virtual machine so I could edit its network connection data for a static address 192.168.0.59 (as described above). When I then use...

Re: Headless minimum hardware start?

I will have to give up until such time as I have a better SD-card. The one I have used is a:
Transcend SD 2GB (marking on the back side shows MM8GF02GWMCU-PA)
It came from a Canon camera I bought 3 years ago.
Probably not good enough...

Different models of Pi, how to tell which?

I got my Pi on Monday and now I also have received an email from Farnell where they offer a ready-made SD-Card with a preloaded operating system to get going faster. However, they state that it is for the "Raspberry Pi model B". How can I tell which model I have received? I can only find a...

Re: Headless minimum hardware start?

Are you required to activate the boot logging before var/log/boot is written on startup? I have seen suggestions to this effect for Debian where one has to enable it in the file /etc/default/bootlogd by writing an entry: BOOTLOGD_ENABLE=yes However in my Wheezy SD-card image there is no such file......

Re: Headless minimum hardware start?

Re: Headless minimum hardware start?

Thanks for your comments! The only reason I tried the headless approach was that I picked up the Pi in the mail on Monday, then headed out to our vacation home by the sea, which meant I have no other stuff available than the gear I had already brought out for other reasons. For example I do not have...

Re: Headless minimum hardware start?

Now I tested with the Wheezy beta distribution on the 2GB SD card. I had transferred it using the Win32DiskImager application and it looked just fine there. In Win7 disk manager the SDCard afterwards has two partitions and 100 Mb free space so it looks pretty OK to me. So I attached the SDCard to th...

Re: Headless minimum hardware start?

Meanwhile I managed to find a good page describing how to set up a Pi like i wanted. It is here: http://www.penguintutor.com/linux/raspberrypi-headless Notice that it states that you need a Linux computer to do the necessary editing of the network control file. But as far as I know the default is to...

Headless minimum hardware start?

I am in a situation that I have the Pi but not much more in the way of keyboards, mouse, display etc but I would like to check it out nevertheless.... What I do have is a small network (wired and WiFi), a spare Ethernet cable, an HTC Desire phone charger (5V 1A USB connector that fits the Pi), a Win...

USB wireless keyboard/mouse

Can I use one of these wireless keyboard/mouse combos that work with a minuscule USB plug or are these only usable with Windows? I don't know if there are some drivers required and if they are included with the Pi Linux software. Collecting the needed external hardware for my newly arrived Pi to run...

Two unidentified connectors, what are they for?

I have received my Raspberry Pi yesterday afternoon and now i am reading up on the how-tos. When I compare the actual board with the picture at the top of the FAQ page there are two connectors that are not explained on my unit. They seem to be labelled S2 and S5 and are located one right on top of t...
