Joomla and sqlite - not a happy partnership

I'm running Raspbian with the Lighttpd web server, and want to run Joomla on the Pi. When I go through the Joomla configuration process, it tells me there is no database support. As far as I can tell, sqlite is installed, and phpinfo() reports some sqlite stuff (I can post exactly what it says when ...

Did you use a cross over cable (or have a switch in between)?

Re: media center case

Just have one for the USB hub and buy a hub with a sufficient number of ports on it. Use a Y cable to power the HDD, and another one for the Pi. You can get bus powered USB DVD drives as well. Plenty of people here seem to power their Pi's with hubs and don't have any issues. You just have to watch ...

Re: Opening SSH port on router - security issue?

It's fairly easy - if I can do it.... ;)

I documented the steps I took here: http://mmm-pi.co.uk/?page_id=80

You can ignore the bit at the beginning about configuring QEMU, as that was written whilst I was still emulating a Pi.

Then just bookmark the url for your text file, and you can always get your PI IP.
How do you access the text file to obtain the IP address when you don't know the IP address to connect to the Pi to obtain the text file?

To find the ip for connecting using ssh I just did a ping from Windows Command Line using the default name raspberrypi and it provided the ip address.

Re: Powered HUB feeds RasPi?

It seems to be a known problem with some hubs that they backfeed power to the Pi. The suggested solution seems to be to open up the USB cable that runs between the hub and the Pi and the snip the wire that provides voltage (I believe it's the red one - but double check before attacking the cable!).

Just want to say thanks for making this available :) I've just printed one out on standard A4 paper and it works pretty well. Next job is to find some card stock and make one that's a little bit more sturdy.

Re: Power the Raspberry Pi over a powered USB Hub?

Yup. Just run a cable from the hub to the poewr input on the Pi. Job's a carrot.

Some people have reported problems with certain hubs though, so have a check on the Wiki to see what's what.

Re: Watercooled Raspberry PI

You'd perfectly well be able to do this yes, the massive overriding elephant-in-the-room question though, is why? This site provides information about watercooled PCs, http://computer.howstuffworks.com/liquid-cooled-pc.htm . I don't think the question was 'why water cooling rather than air cooling'...

Re: Just arrived

You can use the yellow RCA jack to connect up a composite cable to your TV (providing it has composite in ofcourse!). You should also be able to get a composite to SCART adapter if you have a spare SCART socket. Not sure what this will do for image quality though...

Will the GPIO cope with multiple inputs at once? It's entirely possible to need to register two directions (up and left) and two buttons (fire and bomb) all at the same time.
