Re: Arch Pacman, Mrs. Pacman? Smoke 'n mirrors?

pacman -Syu will update your system. You definitely want to run it fairly often to keep your system up to date. As for installing applications, if it is in the official repository seen here... http://archlinuxarm.org/packages as an armv6 package you can just do pacman -S package-name to install it,...

Re: I'm a noob in electronic, should I buy Rpi?

You will never know anything about electronics unless you dive in and learn ;) If you are interested in it, I would say, pick a project, price the items needed for the project, buy the pi and stuff that you need for said project and then try it out and see how successful you are. If you find out you...

Ah HA! So Vfat covers both fat32 and fat16. Now we're getting somewhere! Thanks! (I had assumed that vfat was another file system entirely.) Next question: If I leave out the "uid=pi,gid=pi", will that mean that anyone can use the flashdrive? I don't need users or groups. I am the only one that has...

Re: command line to determine current build?

Look in /lib/modules. There should be a file in there labeled with the kernel name, I don't know if they will all tell you what the distro is, but you can see the kernel version in there at least.

Re: a very rookie question

You will need to set up a user, install all the xorg stuff and whatever gui you want be it a desktop environment like Gnome/XFCE/KDE/LXDE or a window manager like OpenBox/DWM/etc. The beginners guide at wiki.archlinux.org has some good useful information for doing some of that kind of stuff.

Re: Can't mount external HDD,help please!

You probably need to install fuse then. I would wager that

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install fuse
then

Code: Select all

modprobe fuse
would help you a lot.
