Re: 5v regulator not working as expected

According to the Spec Sheet:

"**COUT must be at least 22 μF to maintain stability."

Try adding a 22uf capacitor to the output side of the regulator.

I was really excited about trying this app until I read this!

Any plans for getting it to work with Android versions less than 4.0?

Re: Problem with static ip

When I set static ip on my raspberry pi (raspbian), public connection does not work. For example, wget, curl and even aptitude do not work.. If I ping a public domain name/ip address, there's no response. I edited /etc/network/interfaces as explained in modmypi. website. Local ssh to the new raspi'...

Re: Reducing SD card partition size on a live Pi

OK, I have tried resize2fs but it will not resize a file system that is mounted (which is the only option I have since I only have Linux on Pi's with the one SD card in them). Is there a way to resize a mounted file system or am I b*ggered? You could try the script in this post http://www.raspberry...

Re: Reducing FS image size

Sorry, re-read your post. You need to look at installing Samba. But I don't use it, so I am of little help. Being somewhat familiar with SAMBA from my days of hacking about with a D-Link server, I decided to followup on the idea. I'm pleased to say I've had success and that my second image file is ...

Re: Reducing FS image size

So in your case sudo perl resizeimage.pl /WhereverYouPutIt/large image.img and the smaller image will be in the same folder. I thought I had this beat until attempting to run the script under Cygwin on a Windows PC. Unfortunately Cygwin doesn't have a 'parted' package available for installation :o ...

Re: Reducing FS image size

.... this is just a quick first draft for those reading this. I am currently on a different version which I think would work better, because using resize2fs to tell you the minimum size is useless as it's almost never correct. So keep posted. I'm a newbie to scripting language thus I'm having diffi...

Re: Monitoring pi thru webserver

I have lighttpd installed on my pi and was wondering how hard it would be to monitor different aspects of the PI like free space left on the SD card as an example. Thanks, Scott You may want to try Webmin. See http://c-mobberley.com/wordpress/index.php/2013/04/16/webmin-setup/ for detail. There's a...

Re: Monitoring mains (AC) voltage with the Pi

Today I've measured the voltage with a multimeter in the wall outlet, twice (about 2 hours apart), and both times it was 240V instead of 230V. What an interesting project. Sounds like you'll need an ADC (Analog to Digital) converter. Refer to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Analog-to-digital_converter...

Re: Share printer with windows clients

No one? That's one of the reasons I bought my Pi I purchased my first Raspberry Pi a few weeks ago. Shortly afterward I realized it could be used as a print server using CUPS (Common Unix Print System). For me, a search on Google with the phrase "install and configure cups raspberry pi windows" res...

Re: Manual: basic setup of new Raspbian installations

Thank you for sharing your setup routine on the forum. I was struggling with a couple of things, number lock and updates, until I read you notes. :D :D
