check out Malice Afterthought's F-BOMB and CREEPYDOL. I'm anxiously awaiting his CREEPYDOL software release for Raspberry Pi.

Re: Reading data to the Pi

I think you mean a function generator ... o-scopes don't typically generate waveforms, they just display them. Or perhaps you're looking at a signal (with the o-scope) being generated on some other device. But yea, you need an ADC ... check out the Gertboard, a RPi expansion board. It has lots of ne...

Re: Backup and Restore: Long and Quick way

Is there a way to do this by running dd on the Pi itself while it's on and running? And maybe, output to a file on a NAS or a mounted volume?

I imagine you'd have to boot up in read only mode and have a way of changing it back. Just wondering if you have any thoughts on this.

Detecting Gertboard

I have my Gertboard doing several things, and I have a program that starts at boot that does things on my Gertboard. However, if the Gertboard is not connected, I don't want the programs to run. What would be the simplest way to detect if there is a Gertboard connected?

Re: Controlled Shutdown at Power Failure

With your load combinations, you're assuming your load is resistive and linear. Your Raspberry Pi is an active device and is therefore non-linear and has inductive and capacitive reactances. I'm no expert, but shouldn't this be taken into account also? Have you seen the pi-supply.com design and how ...

Re: Controlled Shutdown at Power Failure

Great work! I'm working on something similar but with a UPS. Since I have to shutdown multiple devices (NAS, PC, and RPi), I decided to get a UPS. The UPS I have doesn't have a way to communicate with devices to tell them to shutdown (I bought a cheap one and I'm too cheap to spring for the one that...

Re: headless pi lost in wonderland

if you short pins 6 & 4 on the gpio header & boot the raspi it will ignore the config.txt file & boot with the emergency kernel which should allow you to fix any problems with the config.txt [note pins 6&4 are from memory so have a quick search on the forum to confirm that they are the right two pi...

how do we do the nbench?

I downloaded nbench 2.2.3 from http://www.tux.org/~mayer/linux/bmark.html
do I just do "make" in the directory?

what about all these other compiler options I see posted in other threads?
