Re: Cat reads UART but not GPSD, UBlox Arch Linux

By the way, I've been following these instructions https://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-ult ... rything-up and I noticed that they recommend restarting gpsd to get cgps to work. In my case, I have to restart ntp as previously indicated, restarting gpsd doesn't work.

Code: Select all

sudo usermod -a -G dialout pi

Re: RasPi Back-Powered through USB Hub upstream port

I guess that is one way to have an USB HDD without a hub! :lol: That could be a great server setup there! Just make sure you are between 5.25V and 4.75V at TP1/TP2. Too much could be bad, especially if it is a version 2.0 PCB, no protection at all. I had a lot less (4.25v) and the RasPi worked just...

Re: RasPi Back-Powered through USB Hub upstream port

I've back-powered my "B" Pi inadvertently through my external HDD's USB plug! :D The external HDD has a separate connection for 5V (via a coaxal to USB plug) that I've connected to a 2-port, power-only USB hub built for a car's 12V port (AKA cigarette lighter).
