Re: Having trouble getting Linux Headers for 3.1.9+

Oh why didn't I think of that, yes I have got a virtual machine of linux I was playing around with before the Pi arrived.

I'll try that and see how I get on!

Re: Having trouble getting Linux Headers for 3.1.9+

I have my RAM split 192MB for Linux and 64MB for graphics although I do have X running.

I can't stop X as I am using x11vnc on the Pi but converting the git into a tar and copying across seems ok. How do I do that on Windows XP?

Thanks!

Re: HowTo: Setup a Remote Desktop with VNC server

I am following this and have x11vnc server installed but I am unsure how to make it automatically run when the Pi starts up?

I have it auto logging in and startx is run, how do I get x11vnc to then run?

I can run it manually with "x11vnc -usepw"

Re: We've hit the big red button - manufacture has started.

I emailed Oliver Heald (North Herts MP) and got a response a mere 2 hours later thanking me for bringing the project to his attention and saying he would write to the Treasury Members and let me know of their response.

Its something I guess, quite impressed at the quick reply!

Yeah bids can be withdrawn but you have to give a reason, either you made a mistake etc.

I'm guessing as there become less available the prices will creep up!

<t>I was just watching the first board finish and I have to be honest, that was the most boring end to an auction I have ever seen.<br/> <br/> The board was at £2,100 for ages and this morning it had gone back down to £1,900 and not a single person bid last minute like "always happens" on eBay haha!...
