Re: Is this normal?

It is basically just telling you how the device is mounted and information about the drive. In this case, it is mounted read-only (ro), relatime is writing of file access times only when the file is being modified, nodev - Don't interpret block special devices on the filesystem, nosuid - Block the o...

Re: clone sd card?

If you have a USB sdcard adapter you could do it right on the pi using the dd command I would think, somebody correct me if I'm wrong, but wouldn't something like dd bs=4M if=/dev/mmcblk0 of=/dev/sdX where the sdX would be changed to the correct drive work? I do know if you do this, the card has to ...

Re: Can I do that with Raspberry Pi?

If you have a PC why not just rip the DVD's into a different format and put them on a big external HDD, then you don't need to even change DVD's, you can just select the video you want and go.

Re: Mounting USB Drive

Or if it is new and has nothing on it and will only be used with the Pi, just reformat it to ext4 and get yourself some good speeds. NTFS and FAT aren't very nice on Linux, they work, but ext4 works much better.

Re: default debian install on raspberry pi?

None of it is "homemade" it is just vanilla upstream packages. I have found very few things that I have needed to go to the AUR for anyways. Personally I find the rolling release perfect, especially for something like this as it never needs to have an upgrade re-installed like other distros can some...

Re: Mount device on boot possible?

Everybody was a noob once :) Like I said, the archwiki can be incredibly valuable no matter what distro you are running. If you run into a snag with something, usually a quick search in there will get you right. It really is probably one of the best Linux documentation sites on the net, it is for th...

Re: default debian install on raspberry pi?

If you want bare bones why not try the Archlinux Arm for the pi. It runs very well, doesn't take a lot to set up and is pretty darn speedy on mine. Perfect distro for this device if you ask me. Installs with almost nothing and you add only what you need :)

Re: Starting robotics with raspberry pi?

This guy got a roomba going with a pi. Not exactly what you are doing, but still has 2 servo motors and such with it.

Re: Mount device on boot possible?

lsblk -no UUID /dev/sda2 should work. Just for future reference. A great place to get loads of info is wiki.archlinux.org It is for archlinux but a lot of stuff can carry over and it is highly regarded as being one if the best sources of documentation out there. lsblk -f will list all your partitio...

Re: NAS questions and setup help

I'm using a 5v 1a PS and don't have an issue. I have a powered usb hub but noticed it wasn't even plugged in today and had my 500GB HDD (has it's own PS) a wireless mouse and usb keyboard plugged in and it worked fine.

Re: Mount device on boot possible?

in /etc/fstab you can specify the device using the uuid. best way to figure that one out is probably gparted by right clicking on the partition and selecting information I believe. In fstab you would do something like UUID={uuid-of-your-device} /media/removeable auto defaults,nofail 0 2 Should do it...

Did you try re-downloading the file and writing the image? Could have been a bad download.

Re: Introduce yourself!

Just got my slice of Pi on Saturday and have to say so far I am impressed. Running my beloved ArchLinux w/ openbox on it and it is a pretty good performer. I'm really excited to see what I can get out of the device! Gonna use it as a media server and possibly more around the house using minidlna and...
