Re: Nokia N82 screen

<t>Hi guys,<br/> <br/> I have a spare Nokia N82, and I want to ask if someone knows if I could use the screen. I'm not quite sure what is the connector of the screen, but I was able to find a picture of it:<br/> <br/> I want to use it to display a text terminal, so no need for X drivers <br/> <br/> ...

Re: Startup and Setup

<t>Yes it will be ready to boot, but after you prepare a card. You can format the card on your own, or you can use a program(I think it was called PiCard, seach the forum; it basically does what Unetbootin does for PCs)<br/> <br/> The rpi doesn't have a BIOS like your computer's. It has a bootloader...

Re: "pocket server"

<t>Well I am able to see the voltage of the battery(LiIon) of my phone, and my laptop, so it"s not flat, but they are designed to report their voltage by the OEM. I don"t know much about hardware, so for me it"s a mystery how they do it exactly, but they do it. A 3.7V LiIon cell is 4.2 volts when fu...

I"m also thinking about headless with battery, but I don"t know one very important thing. How will the battery report its state(voltage, or mAh remaining) to the rpi?
