Re: Rasbian is a completely INSECURE operating system

My Firefox shows the same. The site is still secure. Raspberrypi.org probably has not gone through any extended validation when getting that certificate. Extended validation costs more money, so I'm not suprised that many smaller organizations won't pay for it. At least Firefox showed you the proper...

Re: Rasbian is a completely INSECURE operating system

Now, here is todays problem with the current situation: My Chrome browser, Version 42.0.2311.135 (64-bit) on Debian, does not accept that https:/raspberrypi.org has been identified because they are using "outdated security settings". See attached image. Curious... My browsers do not show any proble...

https? At opensuse I would asume it, for pfSense it is a fact. Wake up. OpenSUSE does not use apt. Debian and Ubuntu, and probably Mint, use apt and have http-addresses in their sources list. If you know better than them what is secure, you should take up the argument with Debian and not here. In y...

Re: 9$ SBC from Next Thing

C.H.I.P seems not to be a serious alternative for Pi 2. It is not as powerful and it only has one USB connector. It has TWO. One of them powers the board and is also USB and OTG-USB. The other one is a full size USB. That's one thing that's bothered me about the Pi, the fact that the micro USB is r...

C.H.I.P seems not to be a serious alternative for Pi 2. It is not as powerful and it only has one USB connector. The price is nice but the price of the additional HDMI adapter brings it close to the Pi 2. I also can't find any confirmation if the C.H.I.P. can output Full HD - maybe it is limited to ...

Re: Raspberry Pi as a synth

Re: Raspberry Pi as a synth

I have had similar issues with my desktop computer. The crackling probably is just buffer underruns. I suffered sometimes from it when the CPU usage was not even close to 100%. I can only speculate about possible reasons as I have not played with jack audio on the Pi. Maybe jack or the synths can't ...

Re: Rasbian is a completely INSECURE operating system

Most of the Raspberry pi repositories have completely undermined APT security, and thus, every Raspberry Pi is insecure This is a bold claim. As far as I can tell, it is true.

Re: New to Raspberry Pi

Are the files marked as executables?

How did you try to execute them - from the terminal or from a file manager?

If from a terminal and from the right directory, did you precede the file name with "./" to indicate that you meant a file in the current directory?

Any error messages on the terminal?

Re: Scarlett 2i2 audio in troubles

It does not seem like it is about power then.

Maybe the problem is simultaneous recording and playback (full-duplex)? Have you recorded to a file without playing anything out at the same time - does the file sound bad?
