Re: Apache not running

Not the first time I've set up Apache, first time on Arch through.

So I did check the usual suspects, like listen, hostname and the like.

Apache still won't start.

Oh well, I moved to Cherokee and now it works. :)

Apache not running

I just got my Pi and put Arch on it to run my OwnCloud...

Apache was installed along with it and now Apache does not run. And yes, I have tried to run it manually and added 'httpd' to the rc.d.

Re: Power on/off

I think there is some possibility to add an on/off switch that does a nice and slow kill of all software running on the Pi.

You'd be better off to use Ethernet to link the Pis, through a PCB would work nicely to get power to the boards.

Re: java

With Debian it should be perfectly possible to get Java to run on the Pi. Heck there is a JavaVM for an 8bit AVR controller after all.

Minecraft should be close to impossible. But try talking to notch, maybe he might be able to do something.

Its a cheap computing device for 25 to 35 Euros... I think I can buy a new one when I damage one of them without warranty.

Because then I can try to fiddle around with the damaged one and see if I can't repair it.
