Re: A cooling question

Just because something gets hot it doesn't mean it requires cooling, if it's designed to run at the temperature it's getting to, then it's not a problem, as such, phones get warm, but everything inside them is designed to operate normally at that temperature. Just as an oven gets hot, but everything...

It appears you either have a corrupt file system, or a dead/dying SD card.

Have you tried putting a new image of the OS on the card?

Re: Remote access - Nat traversal?

You could try teamviewer, it supposedly has a debian package (although unless it's in the main repo the chances of it running on arm are probably slim), there is also a tar.gz file which I assume is source that may compile. Other than that the only thing I can think of would be to setup some other t...

Re: Rpi 2.0 in the works?

I would _very_ much doubt there is a 2.0 in the works, simply because the Model A hasn't even released yet, and the education version hasn't released yet. Since the stated goal of the foundation is to get school kids into programming, one has to imagine they won't be working on a new version until t...

Re: Adding a Wi-Fi module via UART

That's actually a really cool little device, however it's designed to "go the other way". It appears the idea is to connect it to something with a UART or serial out, and then transfer that signal wirelessly to com port redirection software, although it will also post data to a webserver.

Re: i2c GPS Modules

I'm using a SSF2929P. It'll connect directly to the UART if you disable the console stuff and gpsd talks happily to it through that. It's about the cheapest unit I could find at about $30.

Re: Updating Firmware Problem

Actually they don't. I assume they are using Raspbian, in which case apt-get update/upgrade is the right way to do it. Raspbian doesn't drop the very latest kernel into the repo as it's updated so often and, I assume, it's better to have some stability unless there is a problem. You can easily add t...

If all you want is time, you may be better off with a GPS module rather than 3G. It'll almost certainly be more reliable and NTP will happily use gpsd to sync time from it
