Wiped HDD

Hello everyone. I'm in a small pickle, I just wiped my external HDD somehow. Can anybody tell me why "rm -rf $R*" erased all my stuff? I tried to remove something named $RECYCLE.BIN created when I used my HDD with Windows, after reconnecting to my RPi all my files were there, but this bugger annoyed...

Re: Calling with a 3G modem

It not possible to use the current modem SIM, I don't know where it is and I probably shouldn't mess with it anyway. For the AT commands I just look at that page and try something until it works, it's a cheap modem from DX so documentation is basically nonexistent. I realize I haven't given enough i...

Re: Calling with a 3G modem

I use my regular cellphone SIM card with which I can call or use the internet (so data I presume). I was able to call from and to my modem from another cellphone, but only with the ";". Once I got the call from the cellphone I answered with ATA command and the line was open, it wasn't very interesti...

Re: Calling with a 3G modem

According to this thread on another forum It seems the ";" makes a voice call, not a data call. The weather station doesn't use its modem for internet, it's quite old. Once it receives a call it replies with a data stream, in a JSON format or whatever. Currently a second GPRS modem is connected behi...

Re: Calling with a 3G modem

Success: I continued to search and turns out ATDT needs a ";" after the number, so when I issue the command "ATDT01234567;" it calls 01234567, now to get the data stream to work.

I'm trying to call a weather station that reposts its sensors data via GPRS modem.

Calling with a 3G modem

I'm trying to call a phone/telephone network connected device in order to send/receive data, so far I was able to connect to the internet thanks to sakis3g, the setup was very easy as all I had to do was to enter sudo ./sakis3g start SIM_PIN=0000 APN="mobileoffice3g" and it reported 3G HSDPA MODEM c...

Re: Raspberry Pi won't connect to 3D Printer

I'm in the very same situation, using OctoPrint it gets gibberish at whatever baud I'm trying to connect to it, but there's something when I first connect to it. I'm using the default Marlin firmware from Cura on a Windows machine which works extremely well. Have you found a solution? A clean instal...

Re: Bluetooth CambridgeSiliconRadio : Pairing makes Kernel c

Hi! For Cambridge Silicon Radio Bluetooth Dongle work properly, you should make following: add line "blacklist hci_usb" into /etc/modprobe.d/raspi-blacklist.conf and line "hci_usb reset=1" into /etc/modules. After reboot dongle work stably well. I tried and still no game. I've even tried a solution...

Re: Bluetooth dongle freezes Raspi

So it wasn't the power supply, my Pi crashes systematically after the connection has been closed. I'm starting to think it's related to the drivers and software... can anybody confirm? Here's my code in Python that I use to connect to a BT clock that has to be synced once in a day. #!/usr/bin/env py...

Re: Bluetooth dongle freezes Raspi

Seems like it's a power supply problem, I'll try to bridge the USB to the 5V supply. My RPi is powered by a lab supply at the moment that can give everything the RPi wants, so the only limiting factor can be the RPi USB current limitation (140mA if I'm not mistaken). Still, having a complete crash b...

Re: Bluetooth dongle freezes Raspi

I can still confirm the instability with the very same dongle. I've successfully connected to this dongle and transferred data both ways, but it seems every time after closing the connection my Pi crashes. I also have a headless system and it's very annoying to have to physically power cycle the sys...

My current project is to get Motion decently streaming, currently I can get up to about 5-10fps at 640x480 with a quite low image quality, which is already great! My biggest problem is that motion saves files to /tmp/motion , I don't really care about keeping them right now, is there a way to turn t...

Re: Turn Apache server OFF

No Minecraft server runs on the Pi unless you count the ones that allow one person and a few fps speed. But you may have figured that out. Disabling Apache if there are no active connections won't really free up anything. The services are only really taking up resources if something is connected an...

I've installed PHP and MySQL to run a website, it runs great, too great actually. It starts at boot, but if I want to do something else, say run my Minecraft server, I'd...
