Re: Thin client from Raspberry Pi 2

As our users say WTware works on Pi 3 now. Only WiFi is not working yet. We'll make it work as soon as we receive our Pi 3. So our project becomes https://winterminal.com WTware for Pi 2-3 :) Good work! Since PXE is is coming for the Pi 3 (wait is for software, the hardware can do it), this will be...

Re: Arduino

Have a look at https://github.com/arduino/Arduino/pull/4517, looks like the Arm like Rpi is getting official support.

This is a current build of the latest IDE for ARM, runs on RPi2 and RPi3 as reported, http://downloads.arduino.cc/javaide/pul ... arm.tar.xz

Re: USB ports stop working after a week, needs restart

Possible causes might be an application/driver/deamon with a memory leak, slowly eating all available and choke the system.
Can be is the OS, or in the applicatiosn you have added.
Can you monitor remote/log the system resources?

The easy way out is a reboot every day via a cron job.

Re: Raspberry Pi Zero - wireless keyboard/mouse (Logitech MK

The similar K400 works fine on a Zero. No configuration required.

What kind of cable do you use between the mini usb of the zero and the USB dongle?
Can you check if the cable with a non-wireless keybaord and/or mouse works?

I use cheap OTG cables and unpowered hubs, no issues there.

Re: SMB Transfer Speed (of the new Pi 3)?

There are several things to investigate when building a NAS server: - cpu. The RPi 3 is an improvement in clock speed over the previous ones. And Samba is a user process, and not multithreaded, so not optimized for more than one core, every client gets a new smbd (see https://www.samba.org/samba/doc...

Re: Connecting a floppy drive to my machine.

USB floppy drives work fine on a Raspberry, I have got a Freecom type, that just works with standard FAT formatted floppies. What you will not get to work with USB is low level access, dumping tracks etc to overcome non-standard formatting. For those tools you will need a standard PC floppy interfac...

Booting a RPI3 for the first time is no different then any other Pi, with the advantage that the 3 has an Ethernet connector. Plug in a ethernet cable, insert your fresh imaged SD card with the latest Jessie OS and look at what IP number from DHCP it comes up. No idea e what to use on a Mac, look ar...

Do a full erase on it.

On Windows SDFormatter does that. Or put it in a digital camera and use the erase card full function.

Hi,

You can indeed read these signals. Only possible problem you may encounter that the 7 segments led are multiplexed and not staticallly illuminated.
