Kali Linux on a Zero

Hey everyone, Wondering how I can put Kali on my zero? I've done the normal tutorials which require a basic image for the original pi. There is a fix for the B+ when it is not booting (copy over some boot files from here https://gist.github.com/MikeyJck/e0baf8977dfbf2c2fd67 ), but nothing seems to w...

Learning Linux

I don't know if this is the correct place but, where did you all learn what to do in the linux command line? I'm great at copying instructions, but I want to know what all of the commands mean so I can start to lean away from them and do things on my own. Is there a list or page that has all of the ...

Re: GPIO pin control

The GPIO pins come directly from the SoC device on your Pi (the CPU+GPU chip). It is fixed at 3.3 V and low current, this is a logic-level signal, not a motor drive. You should not try to draw more than about 10 mA of current; most motors need much more than this. To drive a motor you want some add...

GPIO pin control

Simple question how do you use the gpio pins to control something like a fan?
I was also wondering if you could put more then 3.3v through the pis pins, to control something like a large fan.

I have minimal knowledge in python and the more detailed explanation the better!

Recording Games

I have a spare Legato game capture device, a spare RPi, and a spare xbox, hmmm.

Would there be a way to record game on the pi? It wouldn't be powerful enough to compress the images but could you record it in Raw? Then just have like a terabyte of storage to capture it to?

Re: thin mini itx

You just build a PC as per normal. If you want to run a high end graphics card (i.e. anything for gaming above and beyond a bog standard onboard graphics, you need it plugged into the appropriate interface (e.g. PCIe/AGP/PCI etc). The you just use it for everything. You won't get any tangible advan...
