Re: Can't PuTTy to my PI.

Have you checked the IP address your router is dishing out to your Windows box? Same subnet as your Pi? Firewall settings on your router?

Re: Why Is wolfram-engine included?

The Pi's primary mission is education. Makes sense to include it. It's a great package for math students. I have it installed on 2 Pis my kids use, on 8GB SD cards running Jessie Light. You will need to make sure you are using all of your SD card (as others have noted). Then just remove it.

Re: Raspberry Pi 3 ad-hoc wi-fi crashes

Thanks Joan.
Looks like those messages were soon after boot (8-10 sec).
If it works for hour(s) before disconnect it may be interference from another 2.4GHz device (microwave, phone, even Bluetooth).

Can you post the results of:

Code: Select all

dmesg | grep wlan0
(Replace wlan0 with whatever wifi interface you're using)

Re: Raspian Lastest Update Disabled SSH On Boot?

It is strange, if not somewhat coincidental. I'll open a new thread in troubleshooting if I run out of ideas. The IP address is correct.

Re: Raspian Lastest Update Disabled SSH On Boot?

I'm having the same (or very similar) issue. Last night I flashed the 2016-03-18 version of Jessie Lite on a Pi Zero, and now SSH times out trying to connect to another Pi (running 2016-02-26 Jessie Lite). I can ping in and out of the Zero just fine, and SSH to it. If I power down, put my old card b...

Re: PI Zero

I've gotten 3 Pi zeros from Adafruit without much hassle. I say on their notification list, and order promptly when I get the in stock notification. Also helps to have the other odds and ends already in your shopping cart: you will need them, lessens the shipping cost shock, and gets the order in be...

Re: pi vs. tablet

I would not compare it with x86-->ARM, that seems to be the other way round, the ARM is designed for the masses, see how difficult the assember is The ARM assembly language is the nicest I've ever worked with (and that is quite a few). Much better than that botched x86 mess. :) That's precisely my ...

Re: TP-LINK (Model:WN725N) Set-Up & How To..

If all else fails... I've had some issues with certain WiFi dongles (in my case Edimax) bending the ground pin inside the USB connector on A and A+ models. Take a look inside the port, you can see it if your eyesight is good (or use a magnifier). The rightmost pin will be squished to the back of the...

IIRC the default timer interrupt frequency is 100Hz (not 1000Hz).

Re: We're recruiting!

My career is winding down, retiring in a few months after 30 years in mainframe hardware development and last 10 in customer hand-holding. Not really rewarding, except for the financial part. Time to flip that around.

Edit: Liz, there are probably is a gaggle of us folk out here.

When the price is announced of any PI, it is always made clear that that price is ex BTW and ex transportation costs, taxes differ from place to place, so prices with taxes simply cannot be told.

Re: Raspberry pi zero equivalent with Ethernet

This is a paperweight for almost everyone. Balderdash and poppycock (to borrow from Fruity). The PiZero is the most exciting computer I've ever seen in 35 years of playing with the rotten things. With a USB OTG cable (or dongle) it becomes a good substitute for an A+ or any of the original RPi1B ma...
