Re: Adafruit 1.8" TFT with RPi

Does anyone know what sort of power consumption these units have??

Would it be possible for the OP to give us an estimation of total power draw on this full set-up as is running the software, pi and screen??

Thanks.

Re: How to make Raspbian read only?

I strongly suggest good quality SD cards. I never shutdown my pi properly, i just pull the plug and Ive never had a corruption issue. So, that would make me think your pulling of the plug is coincidental to your corrupt data issue.

Backup to 2nd sd card(usb)

Hi, {Im not sure if this or the software forum is the best place for this question} I need to be able to sync files from a specific folder to a 2nd sd card attached via usb. Ideally this would be in real time, but could be on some sort of activity polling basis, or if necessary just on a schedule. A...

Re: Will the pi run iTunes at all

WIth all the plays based around the Raspberry Pi name im really disappointed that no-one has gratuitously thrown in 'PiTunes'. I thought this was supposed to be a place for nerds to hang out. Shame on you. :D :lol: :lol:

Re: Raspcontrol - A Web Control Centre for the Pi

Raspcontrol has great potential but lacks several things id like to see, as im sure others would too. I see from git hub that several people are working hard to implement thse features and more, but they are not yet included in the main gitrepo. Is this likely to change soon? If not, how can i updat...

Re: using two Pis as one dual-core?

Is it possible to use two Raspberry Pi computers together in such a way that the result is effectively one dual-core computer? If so, how would one go about implementing this? My apologies if I don't use proper terminology, if I'm being unclear, if there's already a thread regarding this (I couldn'...

Yeah, I know that GUIs are supposed to mean never having to use the command line, but you certainly can't beat dropping to a Terminal window and typing "df". That would have helped you out.

Re: Second SDCard via USB

Having read your response, I had another look in file manager and it looks like the 2nd sd card is accessed via the 'media' folder, rather than showing as a separate drive. Does this sound right?

Hi, Ive got a 64GB Micro SDCard as the main storage medium for my pi and then have a second 34GB Micro SDCard in a tiny usb adapter. The main sd card is recognised in file manager as expected, however the second card connected via the usb adapter is not. Oddly, the second card is recognised by the R...

Re: Wow! First production enclosure just arrived

I dont want to trigger off the age old "but the pi is designed to run hot" flame wars, but......

How is this case, for heat dissipation especially if you do a bit of over clocking??

It looks like a good snug fit with little air flow.

Eitherway, the fact that the sd card is so exposed and the open nature of things like the hdmi out etc are weaknesse...
