Re: How to connect and use ssh without a screen using BUILDR

As Heater said: buildroot is a wonderful tool to build embedded systems - but in the very moment, you need something beyond the buildroot provided packages, your learning curve will go up (maybe untill "stalling"). Furthermore, buildroot does not provide a packaging system as raspbian and ...

Re: Actuall Perl Version to low

Not sure, I completely understand your question. I assume your programs run in a specific users environment? If so, it should be easy: put perlbrew switch perl-5.22.0 in that users .profile and you should have the "new" perl in users path. Perl programs usually use #!/usr/bin/perl -w which...

Re: Actuall Perl Version to low

You might want to take a look at perlbrew: http://perlbrew.pl/ and https://metacpan.org/pod/App::perlbrew In a nutshell: wget -O - http://install.perlbrew.pl | bash which, of course, will compile the new perl version (and leave the "old" one on the system) - but you do not depend on a pack...

Re: Simple nagios alternative?

You might want to look at munin (munin-node) and / or cacti. However, all of them have to be configured. As an alternative, you might consider to write some scripts, that collect data and send to your self hosted server application. Shouldn't be that difficult: - collect data - open connection to yo...

Re: Help pls !!! PFSense on RISCOS

Hi,

if you refer to the firewall (http://www.pfsense.org) I fear, it will not work: this is a self contained firewall, based on FreeBSD and (to my knowlowedge) only for intel (32 and 64 Bit)

Re: Unreliable Unreliable Unreliable

Maybe, its the wrong place to suggest (admin will you move my message in this case?), but ever and ever again reading about damaged SD-cards: I would suggest, to offer an alternate kernel with "aufs" (or unionfs) * sure, none of the two is in the mainline kernel, * I know about all the dis...

Re: i2c-0 shows strange behaviour

I use an ATMega328 (currently for ease of development an arduino) to drive some sensors, a display and a thermal printer. Connected via i2c - it works, used it in other projects. And yes, it works on my "virgin" RPi's (with the standard kernel) The self brewn kernel seems necesary to overc...

Re: i2c-0 shows strange behaviour

Trev, problems comes from brewing my own kernel: tried as in my original post on another RPi (B /R2) - nothing connected but my custom kernel. Get the same wierd output for i2c-0: address = data whereas i2c-1 gives the "normal" output (with the dashes only) i2c-1 works fine, never connecte...

i2c-0 shows strange behaviour

Hi, (hope this is the right place ) I have 3 RPi's, two with external USB-Disk (for development), one booting from SD (aufs, modified kernel) for testing - which shows the strange results. What I did: changed cmdline.txt to get all boot messages to serial (and logging!) dwc_otg.lpm_enable=0 console=...

MatF,

thanks again - it worked like a charm! (Most likely I did something stupid, mixing versions)
