Re: Headless?

So overall I guess there is no headless metapackage? I don't want to pull down all the X11 dependencies for java applications that run in shell :P Removing X11 removes java, and I don't even really want X11 installed on a Pi being used as a headless server.

Re: Kernel Panic RasPi 2?

I cannot for the life of me wonder why it's been doing this, but I'm thinking it may not be the command per se but just plain old SD card corruption.

Kernel Panic RasPi 2?

I have two Pi 2's on order waiting for them to arrive here, but I also purchased Pi 2 in a datacenter in the Czech Republic. Woot! I love the performance compared to my model B, but I've had some stability issues with it. Considering it's a server and not a desktop setup in this case, I've been tryi...

Re: Problem with network connection

Everybody's network is complex which makes helping you on this one hard without knowing details.

You're using the built in NIC and not Wifi? Most home networks with DHCP will just work out of the box as soon as you plug in the LAN cord. Otherwise, you may be configuring it wrong?

Re: Pi 2 Memory Split

Awesome. I've got two Raspberry Pi 2's coming that I can hack with more. I ended up buying one from a data center to run as a server, so I don't want to do too much hacking, specifically compiling a kernel while risking my installation especially since the official one will have it in due time haha....

Re: Pi 2 Memory Split

The user/kernel virtual memory split currently in use is CONFIG_VMSPLIT=3G Which has a side effect of "eating" 240MiB of ram (for vmallocs). The ideal virtual split would be 2G/2G but this has caused problems with a couple of applications, namely Sonic Pi. Once the userland programs are fixed then ...

Jessie is nice to play around with and I'd be more than happy to use it here at home to hack on, but for a server application Stable is more ideal.

Debian official HF port on Raspberry Pi 2

Anybody ever get the official Debian stable running on the Raspberry Pi 2 now that it's ARMv7? I'm especially interested in getting backports and I think Raspbian does not have them. I hear someone got Jessie running, but I want to run a server and don't want to use testing for that.

Re: Problem with sudo apt-get upgrade

When in doubt, you can always try

Code: Select all

dpkg --configure -a
and

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get -f install
Can't say it'll do anything though haha.

Re: The user Pi seems to be super user?

It's important to note that a default Debian install doesn't even bother with sudo for users it adds when you install a fresh Debian installation, and instead relies on the su command, which requires setting a root password ( sudo passwd will set a root password). There is no root password in a Deb...

Hi! @jsebean You don't need to install that package if you don't need it, plus installing doesn't update your existing packages. The u6 doesn't remove heartbeat requests, it patches the bug when you request back a message longer than what you sent, so it's just like running 1.0.1g, it's just Debian...

Sounds like your SD slot is bad. A rare problem. There are fixes for this or you can mail it back for an exchange to whoever you purchased from. Fixing it yourself will save you the time, money, and burden of returning for another. I would send it back but I ordered it a long time ago (last July?) ...

Re: Security Bug in Raspbian OpenSSL version

OpenSSH does not use OpenSSL or have anything to do with it. Openssh DOES use openSSL, you can see that in the dependencies. It doesn't use the actual ssl functionality though, just some of the crypto bits and peices. Now as I understand it this particular bug does not impact openssh because openss...

Nope, you're the only one who thinks that.
