Re: Raspberry Pi App Store?

<t>This seems a bit pointless. For a start, the R-Pi runs different operating systems depending on the user choice. It's not like an android phone. Different apps have to be compiled differently depending on the operating system they are to run on.<br/> <br/> Also, Debian/Fedora and pretty much ever...

Re: HTPC type project with my Raspberry Pi..

<t>I think you're being a bit ambitious here. Using the R-Pi as a steaming/PHP/NAS server = fine. Using it as a media-player on your projector to play video files from a network = fine. Doing both together will probably be dog-slow! You could buy two. Or you could buy one to use for the server/strea...

Re: Linux swap partition

<t>I was planning on having an 8GB USB key plugged in permanently. I've made a 1GB swap partition on that so whichever SD card I have plugged in to my PI (I have three), they can use it. USB must be faster than USB for read-write - especially as it's a separate device. When preparing my SD cards I d...

Re: Mounting Options

<t>Problem with stuff like that or using a glue gun (the budget option) is that it's pretty much permanent and hard to remove the board if you want to. I wish there were mounting holes, it would make true DIY cases that don't involve 3D-printers much easier.<br/> <br/> I'm thinking of using rubber p...
