Re: PHP and GD (libgd) on Jessie and Jessie Lite

I don't have any personal experience with this, but might the second comment here help? Debian bug #778596 php5-gd: imageantialias is still missing I could be wrong, but I did very briefly do some Googling regarding image manipulation with PHP a few months back, and the impression I got was that (1)...

Re: jessie-lite requires super-user to ping

Okay, so it's a known issue:
viewtopic.php?f=36&t=127183&start=25#p853435

Hopefully it'll be fixed in a future Raspbian release.

jessie-lite requires super-user to ping

Hi all,

I've just installed from the "2015-11-21-raspbian-jessie-lite" image and I've just noticed that /bin/ping has no setuid bit and consequently doesn't work unless I sudo it.

I can fix this myself, but I'm a bit concerned permissions on other files might be wrong too?

Re: Pi as network bridge works... but then it doesn't

Hi jojopi, Firstly, this is not actually a bridge configuration, but a router. Oops! The worst part is that I checked Wikipedia before posting here just to check I'd got it right. :oops: But thanks for correcting me all the same! :D Originally I set it up with iptables doing NAT until I figured out ...

Re: Pi as network bridge works... but then it doesn't

Hi Dutch_Master, The wired and wireless network interfaces were working, so the problem is certainly something to do with the bridge - failing to forward packets. I might check iptables next time this happens; perhaps something is inserting an entry that breaks the forwarding. But I'm certain that p...

Pi as network bridge works... but then it doesn't

Hi all, TL;DR - I'm using a Raspberry Pi as an ethernet to WiFi bridge. It works, but occasionally stops forwarding packets even though both the ethernet and WiFi interfaces appear to be working. The long version: I've been using a Raspberry Pi running headless as a network bridge for a few months n...

Re: Problem with NEWLink USB hub

Okay... simpler question:

If I plug in a USB hub and type "lsusb", I should definitely see the hub listed there, right? So if I didn't, the hub would certainly be broken, yes?

I've managed to purloin an old Belkin powered USB hub and that works perfectly. Shame I've got to give it back really!

Problem with NEWLink USB hub

I've just purchased a NEWLink 4 port USB hub (click for Amazon page) , but I think I might have a duff unit. Could someone knowledgeable confirm? If I use the hub's PSU, the LED nearest the power socket comes on. When I plug the USB B-to-A cable between the Pi and the hub, the LED nearest the USB-B ...

Lego case with PCB in rails

Hi all! I have built a decidedly plain looking Lego case, but I thought I'd share the way I've mounted the PCB; it's not necessarily better... just different! The bits I'm using are a Angle Plate 1X2/1X4 and a Plate 1X2 With Slide : http://www.peter-ryan.co.uk/static/20120716/IMG_20120716_223822.jpg...

Re: Setting up HDMI output

Thanks for the reply dom! I tried your settings but the screen just says "Mode not supported", so I guess I'm out of luck. :( It is usable though, and I'll l'm SSHing in for a lot of things... so not the end of the world. Not sure if this is a common issue with Samsung screens though; I had a proble...

I have the same issue with my keyboard - a cheapy Microsoft Wired Keyboard 200. Also strange is that when I "startx" it works.

Re: Setting up HDMI output

Hi all! I have a Samsung SyncMaster 2032MW TV/Monitor[1]. It's a 20" screen with a 1680x1050 native resolution and I'm connected using HDMI. For some reason, the Pi only seems to want to output 1920x1080. If I try to set a mode, the monitor won't show anything. If I try and force it using "hdmi_igno...
