Re: TFT01-2.2S with notro's fbtft module

hi, thanks for the reply =)
the instructions were useful =) but what i am planning to do is that as soon as the pi is powered on, it displays the boot up process, showing all the text. then only boots to desktop

something like this

mplayer remove buffer

hi guys! i followed the tutorial on the raspberry pi camera to stream video using this command raspivid -t 999999 -o - | nc IP 5001 it streams fine but there is a slight delay. i read up and it appears i can reduce the delay by removing the buffering on player. anybody knows how i can do this? cheers

To test if a reverse proxy would work try: 1.) run ssh from the pi and create a reverse port forward: ssh -R 12345:localhost:22 [email protected] keep this connection running 2.) connect from your pc to the gateway ssh [email protected] and now on the gateway use ssh -p 12345 [email protected] T...

Re: raspberry pi cant SSH

do you have access to another linux computer, which you can ssh to from both your pc and the raspberrypi? Then you could use a reverse port forward to use this computer as a gateway. hi yes i do, but how do i reverse port forward? Get a cheap router (unless you already own one) with this you can cr...

Re: raspberry pi cant SSH

hmmm this can be very complicated ....im living in a university accommodation and access to router is highly impossible ... would it be a good idea to connect to pi via dynamic IP?
