Re: Breadboards

As a small breadboard it should do the job.

The only extras you would need is possibly a ribbon cable for connecting to the gpio itself and maybe a header to plugin to the breadboard.

Then you can connect to anything else you want.

Re: Can I remove/unsolder some components?

I am actually making a humanoid robot so the weight is important for the balance once it is standing up. The thing is that I will also be using an arduino nano to control the motors so I want to take those components off the Pi in order to try to compensate for the weight of the arduino. Thank you ...

Re: Red LED on Faint Green LED

Have you tried checking the hashes of the downloaded image to make sure it downloaded correctly or tried a different image?

If the /boot partition or any files are corrupt you won't get much of anything from the Pi at all.

Re: At the Prompt, Now What?

This is blatant rubbish! For as long as I have been visiting the raspberrypi.org website, the banner has ALWAYS stated "And ARM GNU/Linux box for $25. Take a byte!"

However during the program I do a cvqueryframe I just get a seg fault (even with display output turned off. :( Will be seeing if ...

Yay, thanks for copying my idea(which I posted about a month ago) but taking the easy way out, buying a lapdock. You didn't make it, you bought it.

Battery Power/Pack

Just found one of these at work:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Duracell-PPS2-I ... B001GXNJLC

Usb in to charge, Usb out to power the pi.

Lists input 5V 0.8A, output 5V 0.6A Max 3W

I'm just going to test it with the PI.

Re: Debian Hard Float (armhf) for RPi

Possible fix, if I change the configure.ac file so that it appends the CFLAGS with -march=armv6k it builds without issue.

Presumably the qemu image needs to be changed?
