Re: LAN chipset disabled but gets very hot

Its normal for it to get hot. Disabling software support for it doesnt stop it getting power, obviously.

It should not have a composite port (who is using that?)
A lot of people cant afford big HDTVs and only have VGA monitors, so have to make do with using the RCA port to connect to an old cheap, SDTV

Just make sure you umount before you halt. The FAT32 boot partition is easily corrupted.

Re: Are there any size limits on USB hard drives?

"Can you go beyond the 2TiB limit, for example"

There is no 2TB limit?

It all depends on the FS used. ext4 is ok for 16tb, i believe (on 64bit systems) - Btrfs can do exabytes.

Geany has syntax highlighting, terminal, todo list, function/class browser, etc... basically a more powerful gedit.

If you want a real *IDE* try Code::Blocks or QTCreator etc... but I dont know if they will run fast enough...

More. Much more.

A basic debian system (i.e. a debootstrapped cli system) will use a mere 10-20mb of memory when idle.

Re: Changing pertition size

Put the SD card in a Linux PC's SD card reader (an ubuntu etc... livecd/usb will work too) and use an easy GUI tool like gparted, or the gnome disk utility to resize it. Very easy.

Re: Sound playback: clicking noise

The analog audio out wasn't designed to drive low impedance devices like headphones. It's a line-out that can be used to connect active pc speakers or a stereo amplifier. Besides that, there are issues with the alsa sound driver that are responsible for the clicking. The audio is generated by a PWM...

Ive found a modified a script to make and install a minimal Debian Unstable (sid/armel) system onto a specified SD card. I've used it myself as I wanted a minimal starting point, with lots of the latest and greatest. May be use to someone, just change it in 2 or 3 places and you could use it to roll...
