Re: Streaming mjpg from Raspberry Cam

Does anyone know why the -ISO command doesn't work? ISO remains the same no matter how I set it.

Code: Select all

-fps 30 -x 640 -y 480 -ISO 100 -vf

Re: raspberry pi win32diskimager not ebough space

I suppose I'm trying to backup

1: a complete card so if mine dies, I can completely and quickly restore

2: important configurations so I can roll back if misconfigure something. This I can already do via rsync but I'm not entirely sure which folders to backup

Re: raspberry pi win32diskimager not ebough space

It does seem that rpi-wriggle would be a potential solution for raspian but I know some of the other distros automatically expand the file system. Openelec, xbian etc. Personally I think I might go the rsync route and just backup the data on the cards rather than each and every block. Which director...

Re: raspberry pi win32diskimager not ebough space

I'll be honest, while that looks a great guide, it's a little over my head. What I don't understand is that from reading this board, an img seems to be the preferred way to backup an sdcard, yet it seems so difficult to restore the img to any other card other than the original without jumping throug...

raspberry pi win32diskimager not enough space

I have a backup image of my pi that I created in win32diskimager. My card died so I bought another but the card must be a few blocks shorter than my original card because when I try to write the img to my new card I get a not enough space error. I tried to write my img using usbit and told it to ig...

Backup sd card whilst pi is running using rysync

I'm currently backing up my pi by creating an img. This produces a 16gb card and can be quite slow. I've found some code http://raspberrypi.stackexchange.com/questions/5427/can-a-raspberry-pi-be-used-to-create-a-backup-of-itself at the bottom of the thread. Now I'm a bit of a noob with *nix commands...

I see there is an offline mode mentioned in the bug report that someone says allowed their card to boot. Are there any instructions on how to run this?

Re: rpi-update now wont boot

There isn't really much data as such, but there are a lot of tweaks/config files that I've applied. I doubt I can remember all the files I've amended. It would be a lot better if I could just fix this card so I could boot. Why would recovering the boot files not work? Is the firmware upgrade touchin...

Re: rpi-update now wont boot

Thanks guys. The boot partition on the noobs card is on the 2nd partition, therefore windows doesn't see it. I've mounted the card using a linux live cd and can see that in the boot partition there is a boot.bak folder full of .elfs. I'm going to overwrite the files in \boot with those found in \boo...
