Re: Raspberry Jam York, Saturday 8th June

Great day at the York Raspberry Jam, the National STEM Centre was a great venue, and the talks and sessions that I saw were very good - just a shame it was logistically tricky to see everything with so many different strands going on in parallel so I know I must have missed a lot. Great job Alan O'D...

Re: COM port

<r>In fact, the 'advanced setup' stuff about serial ports was included in error, as it was copied in from a page on the Wiki that originally referred to the Beagleboard not the RPi.<br/> <br/> It's explained in this thread: <URL url="http://www.element14.com/commu.....tart-guide">http://www.element1...

Re: Can you make games on the raspberry pi?

<r>For an absolute beginner, MIT Scratch runs on Raspberry Pi (and also on Windows, Mac etc), and is extremely easy to use to put a game together AND learn some essential programming concepts at the same time.  Here's a YouTube showing how to get started with a simple racing game: - and you don't ev...

Re: Raspberry Pi Fedora Remix installer

<r>The installers are not for Mac.  Instead, you can get hold of the card image from the Downloads page above, and follow these instructions for using Mac command line tools to send it to your SD card:<br/> <br/> <URL url="http://www.raspberrypi.org/for.....-10#p50341">http://www.raspberrypi.org/for...

If anyone comes up with an easy way to do the installation on a Mac, I"d be interested.<br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> Yes - ignore the installers, none of them are for Mac.  Get instead the image file, by direct download or by torrent - since this still hasn't app...
