Re: DSI interface relative Problem.

Ah, now I see. You all mean that the interface code is "closed source."

Sorry about that. I come from the networking world, where a "closed interface" is one that has been disabled.

I withdraw my call of shenanigans, with much apologies to ghans. :oops: i

Re: Raspberry to Arduino Serial Connection

Quick question, just to clarify something. Are you using the Arduino IDE on the RPi, or is this on another platform? (your post is a little vague on your development environment) If you are on another platform, can you get the Arduino code to work without the IDE? If so, then check your serial confi...

If you read the thread referenced up top ( http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?t=5062 ), you'll note that it is mostly fixed.

Re: Accuracy of Raspberry Pi "clock"

It was my understanding that the RPi didn't have an RTC on board. If that is the truly the case, then I wouldn't expect any level of accuracy without an external time-sync (read "NTP Server"). Even your GPS Clock solution doesn't do terribly well at actual time tracking. It just used a differential ...

Re: IrDA adapters??

If it is USB-based, then you would only need one with LINUX drivers (theoretically).
I expect it you should up as some type of serial port, similar to Windows.

Re: DSI interface relative Problem.

"The interface is closed?" So, it has either been disabled on the Broadcom, or that is a header with no traces running to it. Both of which sound absolutely absurd, given the Foundation's history of not spening money on hardware unless it can be used (all unused functions of the broadcom have been s...

I don't think it's fair blaming the Foundation because the hub you bought was bad. That's a little like blaming the car manufacturer because the add-on stereo you had the dealership install doesn't work. In the same breath, you *do* bring up a good point. Always be aware of what you are buying and w...

Heck... many flat panels in the U.S. are still being produced with composite input, just to support old devices.

Re: Which file system for external hard drive?

For the SD card, I would recomend sticking with the LINUX native formats.

For an external hard drive (per thread subject line), that might be moved between different OSes, I would recommend formatting for NFS.
