Re: So: who's got a rev2 board?

Ordered (in the UK) on the 11th, Despatched on the 12th Arrived today from Farnell and it's a revision 1 board made in China...! Disappointed, looking forward to fitting a header for the i2s/pcm. G. That is strange, as I ordered mine only a couple of days earlier and received a Revision 2 board. I ...

Re: So: who's got a rev2 board?

Just to update my earlier posts, mine was despatched on Tuesday by Royal Mail 2nd Class post, and was delivered this morning (Thursday), although a slightly stronger cardboard box and a bit more protection (other than a padded bag) would have been welcome! It is definitely a Revision 2 board "Made i...

Re: Bodhi Linux worth a try?

Hi JollyRoger, Thanks for your post. To change the time zone, is it not just a case of typing dpkg-reconfigure tzdata at a command prompt, or if that isn't recognised apt-get install tzdata first, and then to configure locale settings: apt-get install locales and then dpkg-reconfigure locales ?

Thanks Jeff... I was sure I had about this somewhere on here before, and have now realised that it was in a much earlier thread!

Re: Bodhi Linux worth a try?

Is there anywhere we can download a Bodhi image for the Raspberry Pi, which doesn't require too much user involvement please?

Unfortunately not all of us are Linux 'experts' and require more than a bit of hand holding!

This very similar and 'complete' model at http://www.amazon.co.uk/Panasonic-Camco ... B0050MVDV8 is much cheaper, and according to one of the reviewers is ideal for use with a Raspberry PI!

Re: RS and Allied Update #1

From Mike's earlier comments, I understand that he is saying that the current lead time on orders currently being placed with them is about 6 weeks. If that is indeed the case I suggest that anyone who wants a Pi relatively quickly places their order with the 'other' supplier (Farnell/Element14) who...

I had been also been wondering how the camera 'project' was coming along, but going by what Gert has written above, it looks as if it might be further away that we were hoping.

I am sure this is something which will be of interest to a lot of users though! :)

I can't give you a definitive answer, I'm afraid, but that doesn't look right to me... do you really mean 1.5v... or should that be 5.1v?

It certainly looks as if (in the UK at least) Farnell are shipping them out pretty quickly at the moment. I ordered one quite late last Friday afternoon, and I received an email from them today (Tuesday) to say that it had been despatched. I am fairly sure it will be a Revision 2 board, but if not I...

I can't believe just how quickly Farnell are sending them out at the moment. Having read about the Revision 2 boards, I placed an order for one yesterday, and although they stated 3 weeks for delivery, I am hoping it will be sooner... unless of course they have had a sudden rush from customers wanti...

We are sure though, are we not, that the Foundation (or the designers of the board) have recently made the decision to replace the fuses, at manufacturing level, with solid links, rather than resistors, or higher current carrying fuses?
