Re: USB install help

Th Pi requires that you have an SD card to boot off. You can however change the cmdline.txt file on the boot partition of the SD card and choose whereever you wish for your pi to boot off. The forum has plenty of posts documenting this, so just pop boot from usb in the search bar.

Yeah, by all means use it to test the Pi, but if you want to see what's going on you'll need a bigger monitor.

Once you get it set up you can use serial, SSH, VNC or RDP to access it.

Re: Using MICRO USB to transfer DATA

The Raspberry Pi power adaptor doesn't have any data traces to the power connector. The Raspberry Pi is designed to be a Host, not a slave anyway If you're only using two Pis, just use a crossover cable. How about if I use more than 2 pi's ? With one pi as the central storage per say, where all the...

Re: Porting NuttX

Hi. I'm developing an accessory around the SoC in the RPi, and so it ends up being a good prototyping platform. However, I need very fast boot (< 1 s). This might be achievable by stripping down Linux and modifying the bootloader and kernel, but an alternative would be to use NuttX (or some other R...

Re: access web server on the internet

You can forward ports, but it can compromise your network. I'd recommend using Pagekite. It's free for personal use, and pay-what-you-want for business use. It's written in Python, open-source and really easy to use. Follow the instructions here: https://pagekite.net/wiki/Howto/GNULinux/DebianPackag...

Try what I said before, check the interfaces conf and update with an RJ45 cable. This will most likely solve your problem.
Also, what version of Raspbian are you using?

Re: Camera freezes

The only solutions I can think of is...
  • A - Return the camera to seller (warranty?)
  • B - Redo the image on the SD card, either via NOOBS or the traditional way
  • C - Use

    Code: Select all

    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
    to update everything that needs updating
Hope this might help any of you.

Re: Arrrrrrhhhh! Need help with shutdown script

Just wanted to add that I am trying to use the WiringPi library for the interrupts.

Also, if I compiled source code that used WiringPi, would the WiringPi libraries be included in the compiled binary, or would it have to installed on every Pi that wants to use the program?

Re: Odd Geany error message

I'd say that the best solution ATM is to format the SD card, download NOOBS and install Raspbian. Then make sure that the system is up to date by using apt. Then try installing Geany, and it's bound to work. Also, it would make sure that Python and Pygame are up to date.

Just pop a multimeter across the two points and you'll get the volts that the power adaptor is providing. Ideally y...

Re: Why does my Pi need to have internet to use the Pi Store

You can always download the .deb file of an application and install it with sudo dpkg -i <filename>. I think the reason why packages aren't downloadable is because games like Storm in a Teacup use DRM and have to be associated with your Pi Store account. Plus, it's easier for IndieCity to provide su...
