Re: Problem with Raspian Jessie Lite with Pixel

It seems like a few people (including me) have run into this problem recently. Namtar's solution worked for me ( https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?p=1137364#p1137364 ) Hi, i had the same issue this morning. the error is mkdir: cannot create directory ‘/var/lib/chksshpwd/’: File exists...

Re: Jedi Knight?

Has anyone tried this with the Pi 2 yet? I'm curious to see how it would perform with the extra power. Maybe if it gets to a more acceptable speed, we would get a few more curious people to help with porting.

Re: Porting android

Well, somebody always says it's impossible, but it tends to happen. Hopefully this is the case with the Pi 2. The cpu should help a lot, but somebody would need to figure out what to do about the SoC. From what I read, nobody could find an android device that used that same one or any sources etc fo...

Re: Wireless private network for storage?

Just to make one thing clear that took me forever to realize, this is also called a NAS (Network Operated Storage) If you've spent your time using Windows, I'll assume you are connecting with Windows laptops, therefore, you will probably use a Samba share, which is unfortunately from what I remember...

Re: uninstalling Edimax drivers

I was in your same situation a while ago. I tested it on another computer, and it connected (others might say fine, but it wasn't fine) but very slowly and sometimes died out. It also only worked on certain USBs of the main pc. Just call in and ask for a replacement if you don't get full speeds on a...

Re: Powering up Raspberry pi

Both of these devices are bluetooth, so if you have a bluetooth adapter, they can connect through the same interface. (you can add in a bluetooth mouse and keyboard too, it's incredibly useful) Most mini bluetooth dongles (bluetooth USB interfaces) fit within the range of the old models, about 100ma...

So I found some basic voice recognition software on the pi (my favorite at the bottom) and I wanted to make a cool home automation thing. The biggest problem right now is that I can't spend a penny on it (I'm resourceful with a lot of things) and I don't have a way to hook up a mic. Is there a way o...

Does anyone know what has to be ported? It helps to know before you try. I might start trying to learn about it to do it if I know. As I said before, it's still opengle, arm, and Linux. Anybody got the knowledge and willing to share? :D
