Re: Issues with screen resolution

Actually 81 is 1366 x 768 like you want. It may simply be that your TV doesn't support those resolutions via the HDMI port in that mode. You could try hdmi_drive=1 to force DVI mode, failing you could try standard 720p with hdmi_drive=2, hdmi_group=1 and hdmi_mode=4 If none of them work try the tvse...

Re: Kernel Panics - any way to auto reboot?

Add to /etc/sysctl.conf: "kernel.panic = 5" (seconds before reboot). However, and contrary to anything anyone else may tell you, Linux does not commonly panic, whether on a Pi or otherwise. You should be able to run for weeks, months, or years without panic. And if you are seeing panics frequently ...

Re: Cannot resolve hostname, sometimes

The logical suggestion is that your DNS server(s) are intermittant or you have listed 2 and only one is working.

Does /etc/resolv.conf point to working DNS server?

Re: USB redirector

Without the kernel headers it won't matter which of the downloads you try. You need the kernel headers first. The version of the kernel headers you need depends upon the version of the kernel you are running. uname -a will tell you that, and then we should be able to point you in the right direction

I suspect before anyone will be able to help you you'll need to tell us what "the famous kernel error" actually is. Probably also exactly what version you downloaded since there are a number of arm options

Re: Some advice please.

On the safety side, you're not thinking about other vessels. This is really where your problems will be, especially if you plan to be in shipping lanes and other busy places. You have to a) not crash into other vessels, and b) be going at a speed that if you do, you do no damage to any other craft. ...

Re: Working USB LAN Adapter?

There have been a number of posts mentioning that the on-board LAN chip (or more specifically it's driver) is pretty bad, doing something like 8000 interrupts a second even when idle. There was talk of this being looked at but as of now I don't think I'd want to use that interface for anything you'd...

Re: Proxy Server

Well squid is probably the place to start, apt-get install squid, assuming it's in a repository and runs on the pi. For security while abroad your best bet is to setup a VPN connection and connect to that first, although unless you have a decent router that may not be an option, in which case you co...

Re: Starting Pi drops other device off the network

Assuming you have a flat network my only guess other than you're using the same IP for both, is that they have the same MAC address, which technically should be impossible, but has been known to happen

Does the ethernet port even support VLAN's?

It'd be awesome if it did, but I'd also be very surprised if that was the case on this level of hardware

I don't want to ruin the fun here but there are some factual errors here that I think need correcting, if only so someone with no knowledge doesn't take them as fact.

One of the things that occured to me, would be for someone semi official to run repositories for the supported distro's. It would mean people could just apt-get (or whatever is equivilent on Arch etc) new kernels, these kernels could also be compiled with more drivers as modules. It would also provi...

Re: Reduced Read+write times to USB device when compiling

Wow, you're brave compiling anything on the Pi, or you have too much time to wait :D If you just want to get openelec running cross compile it on another linux box. Otherwise you might try getting a large SD card. Of course, given the poor speed of the SD card interface you'd then be waiting even lo...
