Touchscreen hotplug

I have a touchscreen setup in my car with a PI (Raspbmc). I found out how to set the monitor portion to hotplug but not the touch part. I don't leave the screen connected when I leave the car and sometimes I don't even connect it at all, I just use Airplay and don't need the monitor. So if the PI is...

Re: ran rpi-update config.txt corrupt

Thanks. I am more concerned that the file was corrupted by the update. I don't know if any other files were corrupted as well.
Do you know if I would have to rerun rpi-update if I re-images the card?

ran rpi-update config.txt corrupt

I ran an rip-update and everything ran without errors but now my config.txt file looks corrupt. I have a backup image and if I image the SD card from the backup do I have to rerun rip-update? From what I thought...rpi-update is for firmware.

Thanks,
Scott

xbmc no audio

I am fairly new so started out by using the image from here http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=38&t=50543 as an Airplay server for my car. This has worked flawlessly!! I like it because my WiFi adapter works as an AP and just works for me. I want to now add a monitor in my truck and w...

Re: Exim4 and relaying thru Gmail

If I do an Nmap from another machine on the same network on the PI (192.168.1.16), shouldn't I see port 25 as open? I do not see if open that way. Also I tried doing a Netstat -NAP directly from the PI and I don't see 25, should I?

Thanks,

Exim4 and relaying thru Gmail

I have a Lemark x543 All-in-One that lets me Scan to Email but will not work with SSL or TLS (no authentication or plain text only) so I wanted to use my PI with Exim4 to relay thru to Gmail. I setup Exim4 using this guide: http://www.sbprojects.com/projects/raspberrypi/exim4.php I can send an email...

Re: Reducing FS image size

I copied my large image to the hard drive and just put the path to it after the script. So in your case
sudo perl resizeimage.pl /WhereverYouPutIt/large image.img and the smaller image will be in the same folder.
I ran sudo resizeimage.pl /home/swindmiller/PIimage.img

Hope that helps.

Re: Switch Audio Output on the fly

Newbie here :)
What if you did what was given to me here: http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewt ... 08#p441508. Install lighttpd (small webserver) and on the last line just use amixer command instead of my shutdown command.

Re: Reducing FS image size

This worked great!!! Brought my 32gb image down to 1.7gb :D
I booted it up and everything seems to work fine so far, and I did expand the filesystem after the first boot.

Thanks so much!!!

DeanC, I would be very interested in what you have if you are willing to share :) I am just starting with the PI and have been backing up and re-imaging using Win32DiskImager and am using a 32gb card which ofcourse gives me a very big backup. I believe I am only using like 3gb so would love to just ...

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,

Not sure what your setup is like now; you can ssh from iphone to rpi, because you've setup the rpi+wifi stick as an access point? Yeah the wifi is setup as an access point and I need a ...
