Headless network setup

Hello, I was thinking through ways to set up the Pi's network when using it headless after changing the SD card's image. I can get access to a Linux box, where I can mount the SD card and adjust the interfaces and wpa_supplicant.conf files to preconfigure it, but have often flashed a card from Windo...

Re: Any in UK get there's from CPC ?

My camera also arrived in a slightly squashed white box in a grey mail bag, with no protection other than that there was a lot of air in the box which absorbed whatever squashed it.

Re: A simple need to run a command on boot!

I also had this problem and found the following solution: Type 'crontab -e' into the terminal, and add a new line at the bottom starting with @reboot followed by your command:

Code: Select all

@reboot sudo motion
I'm also fairly new to Linux, so there could easily be a better way of doing this, but it works for me.

Re: CSI camera module

Is there a way to detect if a camera is present via the command line, such that a script can be told to test if the camera is present before executing? Like how we can use the board revision from '/proc/cpuinfo' to determine the GPIO layout, its obvious from looking at the board but nice to be able ...

Re: Updating to the 2012-09-18-wheezy-raspbian image

For anyone else running a PHP web server on their Pi, here's a simple snippet to show the core temp and freq on a web page (with comments for anyone newish to PHP): Current core temperature: <?php $temp = intval(file_get_contents("/sys/class/thermal/thermal_zone0/temp")); // read the file as a strin...

Re: LLTD Responder (w/ Debian Linux)

After working on this a bit more (I'm new to linux, hence the slightly disjointed approach) I have figured out how to customise the icon shown on the network map. I have attached a zip file with an example lld2d.conf file and a Raspberry Pi icon, and putting both in /etc will make the Pi show up wit...

LLTD Responder (w/ Debian Linux)

This is only really of use to people who have Windows machines running alongside their Pi. I originally looked into doing this because I usually run my Pi headless, and when managing the network interface I accidentally reverted to DHCP and couldn't connect any more - I had to use my laptop (running...
