Re: How do you set up Bluetooth on Pi 3

I am no expert. :cry: To get my bluetooth keyboard and mouse working, I used bluetoothctl. :) sudo -s apt-get update apt-get upgrade bluetoothctl That then gives you a bluetooth-specific command-line interface. It seems fairly straight forward. "help" lists all the commands. Pressing TAB to autocomp...

Re: My VPN'd torrent-wielding NAS

Easiest thing is to set it in the DHCP stuff on your router. There's no cause to use Virgin Media's DNS for anything tbh.

Re: Automated torrent download/interface/streamer

I'd highly recommend adding OpenVPN or proxying your torrents through a third party or something to your list. This exposes your filesharing to anyone who'd care to see, using your IP address, which is not something I'd recommend. It's not difficult to tunnel your torrent traffic through a VPN, I di...

My VPN'd torrent-wielding NAS

Any suggestions for improvements would be appreciated. My instructions are written with the assumption of common sense. If you're trying to download some and you're prompted to confirm the download, then confirm the download. If you're editing a file, save it when you're done. You need to already kn...

Re: Raspbian is finally, formally here!

I made the tactical error of running rpi-update on my otherwise up-to-date Rasbpian install. Won't now boot. :( Reinstalled but can someone confirm if an apt-get update and upgrade will actually update the firmware? Also where does one check to see what the latest firmware release is?

Note: while this post was originally made by nexy it has been highly edited since. What is Raspbian? The short answer is "It's an unofficial version (‘port’) of the upcoming ‘wheezy’ Debian Linux that is optimised for the Raspberry Pi." Debian offers two arm ports.
