Re: Checking port status

Ah, does this mean it is only listening on localhost: [email protected] ~ $ sudo netstat -pant | grep 2947 tcp 0 0 127.0.0.1:2947 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 296/gpsd I changed my invocation of GPSd to use the -G flag which seems to have been ok now. Thanks for the help.

Checking port status

So, I have a USB GPS dongle attached to my Pi and am using GPSd to interface. It seems to be working just fine. If I query GPSd with the terminal software or if I telnet in on port 2947, it works just fine. I thought I had opened port 2947 to external connections: [email protected] /usr/bin $ sudo ipta...

Re: Building Quake 3 in Raspbian

So, if I connect HDMI and keyboard and run quake from the RPi terminal, then Quake works perfectly well, which is great. When done over SSH it appears not to display properly.. Re location of the data files, Quake compiled into a ../build directory, so the path to my baseQ3 files is: /home/pi/quake3...

Re: Building Quake 3 in Raspbian

Hi After following http://www.raspbian.org/RaspbianQuake3 I seem to be able to get quake to run but I am using ssh with the -Y switch. When I run the program, I can hear a bit of sound but I just get a window that is about 3 cm by 1 cm on my screen that is black and nothing else. If I run the game f...

GPIO and root

Hello

The general guidance seems to suggest that any program that will interact with GPIO needs root privileges and indeed this seems to be so (I'm using Java). Is there any work around for this? I'd rather not run every program I write as root if avoidable??

Re: Faulty GPIO pins?

Thanks for this reply! I had completely neglected the need to connect 3v3 supply and had formed a circuit that went from the input through the switch to GND via the resistor. Newbie mistake.

Thanks for the help.

Faulty GPIO pins?

Hello, I have just got my new Pi and been playing, although I am concerned some of the GPIO pins may be faulty? When output state is set to true, the pins appear to work fine, but when output is set to false, some pins still seem to send current. I have a couple of LEDs connected on a bread board wi...
