Re: Protecting Proprietary software from being copied.

The best real answer I have to "Protecting my software" is "Make it into a web service" You have the overhead of running the server (and as with the authentication mentioned above, you'll have annoyed customers if your servers go down) - but you retain much more control over your service, since you'...

Unable to enumerate usb device on port 1

When booting a newly formatted SD card for the first time, I get this error: Unable to enumerate usb device on port 1 Google seems to be of the opinion that it's a PSU problem, but I've been using a HTC charger for the last several months with a 1A rating. It was also working 20 minutes ago with the...

Re: Wifi Auto Re-connect

Excuse the thread dig, but I found this thread while searching for an answer to a problem and then found the answer which I think may be useful to post belatedly in case others find it. Regarding the "correct" way to restart networking (due to /etc/init.d/networking restart being deprecated): The me...

Re: Is 512mb a good thing?

It's a bad thing, because I just bought a 256mb and don't get it :( Why was this only announced as an "any shipped from now" rather than a couple of months ago? I know it would mean that you'd shift less 256mb B batch, and upgrades happen - but unannounced free upgrades somehow make me feel like you...

Re: Raspbian won't finish booting

Nothing else plugged in?

Things I'd try
1) Unplug the USB keyboard
2) Borrow a TV with HDMI and test with that
3) Check with a different power adapter and cable
4) Unplug ethernet

Not because of any particular fault, but it would mean you can quickly eliminate dodgy components

Re: PI won't boot after update+upgrade

Thanks. I've just tried it with a standard Raspbian image and it works perfectly, so I'll just leave my fiddling with other distros for another time :)

That would make sense - thanks. I'll either flash a raspbian distro on it's own or just not upgrade. Much appreciated.

PI won't boot after update+upgrade

Hey guys I've installed debian via the berryboot utility, and every time I update/upgrade then my RPI stops booting. I first noticed it before I'd even got into the desktop - if I run the raspi-config "update" tool it stops booting the next time around. I've since found that I'm not supposed to use ...

Re: Best approach for PPM?

I would have thought a better approach may be to use an Arduino for hardware control, and the RPI for higher level mission based things, video processing etc. The Arduino is perfectly suited to direct hardware control - people already use it as such with great success: the main problem is that they ...

Re: for those looking into solar power for the RPI

Would this provide the constant power needed for a RPI though? Charging a battery in a phone is fine - lower current would just charge more slowly - but the RPI can't have voltage drops.

Does the battery provide a sufficient buffer zone for when the sun goes behind a cloud?

Re: Yearly running cost per RasbPi

Ah of course, I forgot about power draw at the wall. If I call it 70% efficient then it would draw 7.14W Same sums as before would make the absolute worst case scenario £12.50/year (62.76 units at 140.06 hours per kWh) In actual use I'd expect significantly lower than this - but for my "this is the ...

Re: Theft proof case?

Use the new mounting holes in the Rev.2 boards and attach it to the collar of a really big dog.

Other than that, I'd just put it into a locked box with a couple of holes for cables.

Yearly running cost per RasbPi

Hey guys Just checking some numbers to work out how much a RasbPi costs per year in electricity. I'm basically looking for the worst case scenario (most expensive electricity tariff, 100% usage, 24/7/365) to check that I'm okay with running 1 (or more) RasbPi's. So my maths is thus: [*]RasbPi uses 5...
