@MrEngman hi, MrEngman. I have a question about the source code location. I find rtl8188eu source code from https://github.com/lwfinger/rtl8188eu, but the lastest version is v4.1.4_6773.20130222. but your 8188eu.ko's version is v4.1.8_9499.20131104, did you modify the source code from https://githu...

Re: (UPDATE) Drivers for TL-WN725N V2 - 3.6.11+ -> 4.1.xx+

I think the main problem with adding drivers to Linux is a general concept that the driver source should not include any firmware required and any firmware should be included as a separate binary file. This generally requires drivers that do have firmware included to be modified to remove the firmw...

There is a driver now included in the image which will handle this wifi adapter but if you have been using the driver I compile it will be disabled. You can enable the built in driver by deleting the file /etc/modprobe.d/8188eu.conf which includes the line blacklist r8188eu which stops the built in...

This project is really amazing but I wonder why this driver is not in the official repositories? Not being in the official repositories is really a pain when you update your kernel. As far as I know, if you update your kernel via SSH... and if you don't have a wired connection... and even if you hav...

Wondering the same thing. The 'solution' posted here is not a solution. It is just hiding the issue.

Re: fsck on boot - ctrl-D - how to disable ?

In that case you'd better decide to run it during boot, fsck is barfing for a reason, and forcing a boot to continue with a corrupt filesystem is just going to get you even deeper in the mire. So your first step is to find out WHY fsck is complaining, and fix the problem at source. I understand you...

But I've understood you're right, if fstab is set up to mount a device, it will cry on next reboot if this device is not here, nothing more to do... I guess you're right. But I don't see the point not to skip the verification of the removable device if it is not present. This is the my entry on fst...

Welcome to the forum. Such an RPi is not really "bricked" in the accepted use of the word in this context. Hi, First don't get me wrong.

Re: Real outputs for Pi

IMHO, it seems a great ideia. Keep it up :)

However I would try a goal of 50usd (including the Pi and the external card).

Or for example, two types of cards: economic (~50usd) and the advanced (~100usd)

:)

Good luck.

Re: My first attempt to understand this Raspberry Pi

The Raspi is designed to run Linux, but as others have said you can run bare code on it. However, you then don't get much in the way of support for usb stacks, ethernet stacks or display drivers if you go that way. There are also no IDE's to support this sort of baremetal usage, as you might get wi...
