Re: Trouble to configure HotSpot WIFI with RPi Zero W

Did you ask in their forum? https://dietpi.com/phpbb/viewforum.php?f=5

It's possible the DietPi OS is broken in some way so directing your question to that forum might get you a solution a bit quicker.

Re: Simple questions Xcode

So, what difference does it make if its Swift or Python of Java or C++, what difference does it make if its Xcode or some other compiler, what difference does it make if its on the Pi itself or on the another computer? Because the code has to run on different CPU architectures. It's not always "wri...

Re: Im struggling with my first job at work

All I Need is a confirmation that it can be done with Raspbian stretch / stretch Lite. It would seem the best people to contact would be the retailers concerning OS compatibility. However, you can take the safe route and use Jessie which it's known to work. I don't see much of an advantage of using...

You can find it in his first post: viewtopic.php?f=37&t=216976&p=1334294#p1334294

This is evidently part of a competition so I wonder how much "help" he's allowed to have.

Re: does this display fit to Raspi - does it work with Raspi

Offhand, after looking at the data sheet, I'd say "only with a lot of work" and even then, maybe not. You need the hardware controller interface and device drivers at the least.

Re: Powering Up the ESP8266

But how to supply power to it? There are a number of ESP8266 available with differing power requirements. According to the spec sheet I've read, the ESP8266 requires 3.0-3.6vdc, 60-215mA, 80mA average, so it could be connected to your RPi for power. Also if the sensor is placed outside, how to supp...

Your solution reminds my of Douglas Adams quote: “Solutions nearly always come from the direction you least expect, which means there’s no point trying to look in that direction because it won’t be coming from there.”
