Re: Pi screen: almost had it buuuut i broke it

If you are trying to attach this directly to the Pi using that ribbon cable dont bother. I tried on what appears to be this exact model (this is a slave to the master DVD car player with a 3.5mm jack as input from master) without luck. I had someone that knew about this kind of stuff and said that y...

Re: Carputer

Pi + GPIO + transistor + running lights + external running light power = possible
Pi + MPD + MPC + LIRC + adafruit LCD + button shield + output to stereo = possible, maybe not so reliable in a car.

You might need to tweak the killall command with the python script name instead or in addition to "python"

Re: [HELP!] Setting up a SFTP server accessible to the Inter

SFTP = SSH/SCP a different protocol from FTP FTPS = FTP with encryption SFTP cannot be used in regular browser URLs because it is SSH/SCP. You need a client like Filezilla or WinSCP FTP can be used from URLs in a regular browser, and I think FTPS can also. If you want to use SFTP from outside your L...

Re: Any way to go to terminal if auto-login is enabled?

ednl, you are right I just checked. Apologies on a hasty response. ctrl+alt+backspace does RESTART rather than shutdown X.

Killing the Xserver then, you want to use a terminal with the service xxxx stop command. Where xxxx is your display manager.

Re: Any way to go to terminal if auto-login is enabled?

if you setup ur Pi using "raspi-config" you can set a key combo to kill Xserver when you setup your keyboard in regional settings. ctrl+alt+backspace will be suggested on keyboard change to terminate the X server, but it is optional and defaults to no if I remember right. Second option, open a termi...

Re: How to programmatically check if usb stick is mounted

Make a shell script with if statements that check whether a test file is present on the mounted drive.

or something similar would be my preference other than the python script

Multiple Power sources? (redundant)

So I have recently seen a Pi that was "backpowered" by USB through its USB port without a micro-usb. I have also powered my Pi model A with a USB to TTL serial cable, while at the same time supplying power through the micro USB power port on the pi. This is all theoretical, I do not plan on using th...

All of this sounds like insufficient power. It can cause every problem you list. Get a dedicated PSU for the Pi that runs at 1500mA or higher to test that.
