Re: Changing the wake word (PLEASE HELP)

Re: Running AIY Google Assistant On Boot-up on Raspberry pi3

Yes, mpember is correct. Please do not use (or spread) methods involving `crontab`, `rc.local`, etc. Raspbian (like all modern distrobutions) uses systemd, and that is the way we do this. For reference I will add a few links. HACKING.md explains how to enable the included services . Those instructio...

Re: SPI and chip select pins

Hi, I am not suggesting to use bit-banging ;) Better solution would be to extend the SPI /CS lines with a 138/139.

Re: SPI and chip select pins

When you don't want to use the built in SPI controller, then you can basically use any GPIO pin for SPI. Doing this, you need to write the SPI logic in your own code : bit-banging. This code gives more extensive use of the CPU. Better solution would be to extend the SPI /CS lines with a 138/139. Th...

I have an ADATA 2GB SD DUO that I just love because of the built in USB plug, but the RPi won't even boot off of it. (Yes, using it as an SD card in the SD slot.)

I guess the RPi just doesn't like cheap memory card makers.
