Re: Google Pi project ?

I still wonder why our school uses MACs for just internet browsing! I think a Pi stripped of crap would be good enough for inet and word processing! I find that LibreOffice launches faster on the Pi than the Macbooks we have!

Re: Clean Debian

I was wondering if there is an x86 Debian image similar to Raspbian for x86_64? I'd like to run Debian inside virtualbox for tutorials because QEMU gives me nothing over 267.76BMIPS!

Re: Send Command in terminal using Android phone..Is it POSS

SSH is easiest to use. I use JuiceSSH on Android to connect. Also, RDP woks well. Try installing xrdp via apt on your Pi (apt-get install xrdp) and then Microsoft Remote Desktop (Android/Google Play). Also, Telnet is great for if you want to get high speed communication, without as much processor us...

Re: Read Only OS

The SD card lock switch does not work. It is actually just there for no reason. The card reader can sense the lock position if it supports it, and tell the operating system not to modify it's contents! Also, I boot from a hard drive! Then you'll need to fiddle with the options in your /etc/fstab. I...

Read Only OS

I am in FIRST Robotics, team 1165. I was wondering if it would be possible to make the entire SD card read only. That way, I wouldn't have to worry about corruption. I want the Pi to be able to start up at a reasonable speed and be able to be turned off by unplugging! Is this possible?

Re: Owncloud is soooo slow!

This is really wierd! On my OwnCloud installation, loading the index homepage takes around 30 seconds. However, when I load any page, it takes between 1 and 5 seconds. Does anyone know why this is happening? I don't suspect that the index page is that resource-intensive!

Re: AC case

Of course it isn't practical, but however, wouldn't it be cool? I am thinking of cadding this in my free time. It can possibly be 3D printed. What's 'cooler' than that? After 3d printing, just make the circuit and put a motor that you can salvage from old toys. You then have a working model.

Is it possible for a me to make a compressor based AC system meant to supercool the processor, allowwing a higher overclock more stably? Also, what about a built in power supply, hard drive enclosure, wifi and USB hub? A built in 10 hour battery would also be quite nice

Re: What are your OVERCLOCKING settings when using XBMC??

Everything is based off the cooling that you use. You could have air products come over ad deliver liquid nitrogen to cool your pi running at maybe 3 ghz. Or you can use a nice heat sink or forced cooling system like a peltier. I use mine at rediculus speeds without a heat sink. 1100mhz seems to be ...

Re: Overclocking

Yesterday, I forced turbo and ran a power-heavy application (GCC and netbeans) and it ran stably at 47 deg (2 deg above AZ outside temp). I was watching the temp and turned off forced cooling. It went up to 60 deg in 1.5 min. Is that a good enough cooling system to run stably pi at 1.2 ghz?
