Torrent client

Hi, Is there a BitTorrent client for raspberry pi that can either disable the creation of torrent sub folders, or download to the folder of a torrent file? I ask this because I have a lot of files I am trying to seed, and torrent client with one of those features would speed up the process greatly :D

Jessie can't boot to command line

Hi all, I recently upgraded from wheezy to jessie, but I can't figure out why I can't boot directly into the command line. I've ran raspi-config at least 10 times, and it still boots into the x gui every time. Doing ctrl+alt+backspace just takes me back to the gui login screen as well. Any help woul...

Re: Xbox 360 controller not working

adzyu100 On boot did it detect the Pad (after editing the rc.local script)? If so and then using jstest no inputs are being registered it may be the xbox drivers don't work with that 3rd Party Pad (as the Manual states not all of them are compatible), if so then yes, the easiest option is to get an...

Re: Xbox 360 controller not working

adzyu100 OK, but that's entirely separate to the xboxdriver issue. The best thing to do is make sure the drivers are all working correctly by using say PiSNES/PiMAME4ALL (which are pre built Binaries already configured for joypads) or jstest then get the RetroArch config working as currently you do...

Re: Xbox 360 controller not working

advyu100 As indicated I don't own a 3rd Party Pad so cannot really help there, but the Manual suggests - --device-by-id VENDOR:PRODUCT Use device that matches VENDOR:PRODUCT (as returned by lsusb). Useful for cases when a controller isn't known by xboxdrv, but supports one of the given protocols. T...

Re: Xbox 360 controller not working

Good question! As I only have official Pads there is no way of me to test, however, assisting another user I suggested putting it after xboxdrv in the script and it was then detected. How should I write it in the script? I tried it with the "device-by-id", and just with the double dashes, but it st...

Re: Xbox 360 controller not working

adzyu100 Some 3rd Party Controllers are not compatible with the Drivers or not detected automatically but can be used (if this is the case here) by adding the vendor id to the script in rc.local. Details can be found Here - http://pingus.seul.org/~grumbel/xboxdrv/xboxdrv.html (See troubleshooting)....

Xbox 360 controller not working

Hi, I've been trying to get RetroPie to work on my RPi, but I can't get it to recognize my Xbox 360 controller. It's a Rock Candy wired controller made by pdp, and it's been blinking the whole time. I know it means that it isn't recognized by the emulator, but I've installed xboxdrv, changed the rc....

Re: Arduino parts with Raspberry Pi?

rpdom wrote:So remove the USB port connector. Uncase the USB/SD unit and solder the two together with a few short wires. Then you can mount it almost flat against the underside of the Pi board, or the top if you prefer.
Ok, that seems like a good plan, i think I'll try it.

Re: Arduino parts with Raspberry Pi?

rpdom meant one of these http://www.amazon.co.uk/Fujifilm-Card-Reader-SDHC-Cards/dp/B001725Y0Q I know that, but I don't want it to be sticking out like that.

Re: Arduino parts with Raspberry Pi?

Does it have to be a built-in slot? How about just using a standard USB-SD card adaptor? They cost £1 or less over here in many high street shops. From what I've seen, those are the ones that stick out of the computer at least an inch (or a few centimeters), and my experience with those is that if ...

Arduino parts with Raspberry Pi?

Hi, I'm thinking of doing a project that will require an extra SD card slot (it's an emulator with "cartridges"), but I'm having trouble with what to do. I've found DIY card readers that plug into a breadboard, but I've also found a SD reader module for arduino, and I've been wondering if I can use ...

Since NOOBS wasn't working, I tried directly writing Raspbian onto my SD card, and I was able to get it boot up to the raspi-config screen. Thanks anyway.

Raspberry Pi Freezes in NOOBS

Hi, I recently got a Raspberry Pi for Christmas. I formatted my SD card (16GB) with the program in the quick start guide (and set format size adjustment to on), put NOOBS on the SD card, and plugged in my Raspberry Pi. I'm able to select the OS okay (I've always used Raspbian), but when it installs ...
