Re: A "Factory Reset" for Raspbian

This is exactly what NOOBS is for. So that, if you mess things up, you can boot into the "NOOBS recovery" mode, and re-install your OS(es). Is there some reason this doesn't work for you? Aaron, so that's what recovery mode is! Thanks a lot, this is exactly what I needed. Thanks So, who is Aaron? H...

Re: A "Factory Reset" for Raspbian

I suppose having more than one SD card is too close to common sense ? Trying to work with just one SD card is like having one arm and your head tied behind your back. Get 3 cards for each Pi you own, its so liberating..... I've got 3 micro sd cards, and a load of standard ones from my older pis, bu...

Re: Have two pis mimic each other

It depends what you mean by mimic. It's trivial to send command & control messages from one RPi to another. You can do that with socket programming or (my choice) Mosquitto & MQTT. Mosquitto has three components a publisher, a subscriber and a broker. The publisher pushes a message to the broker, t...

Thanks for this, do you think you could run the server for this off the raspberry pi 2?

Have two pis mimic each other

I was wondering if there was a way, over a network, to have any changes made to one raspberry pi running raspberry pi to be carried out on another. So you could work on one and pick up where you left off on the other as if they were the same machine? Or, if you could use one pi to host the operating...

Re: Tekkit Lite Server On The Pi: Tutorial

I think that at this point Tekkit Lite is a better option, with 74 mods, and being part of the widely used minecraft game, it is part of a much bigger community. Also, Tekkit Lite, as a server, runs very well on the pi. I've been playing for a few weeks with a friend with very little lag, as if it w...

Re: How to Map a shell script to a key

I am unsure of how to solve A but to find which key is pressed

Code: Select all

showkey
should do the trick. Type that in and then press the buttons on the joypad and the keycodes should pop up. It doesnt work from ssh
