On GPIO turn off power pins?

Is it possible to turn off GPIO pin 2? (Reference 5v Model B Pi, GPIO Rev2) Is it just a matter of setting the state of the pin to low state? I have a device I want to turn on or off via GPIO that uses pins 2 (5v) and 6 (ground). I have seen many examples of controlling state of the various GPIO pin...

Re: Raspberry Pi PXE server issues

This may not be what is desired? But I am using one of my Pi devices as a network services server for my home office/lab/etc, DHCP, BIND, NTP, etc. And I wanted to also have it serve as my PXE/TFTP server for the various OS installations I do frequently since I worked with x86 and SPARC based virtua...

Re: Determine information about Pi?

Check this out... I posted my solution... it is a bit more generic in design, but you could use it to get the same basic information if desired.

I wanted and needed an interactive and automation friendly way to monitor such things as Pi temperature, SD card space free space, processor...

What type of alerting? What I have is not that fancy, yet, but if I get the time, I might add the feature.

Re: USB Command Sending

I am trying to figure this out as well, but have a much simpler scenario. I just want to turn on and off the USB port (power signal). I have a USB controlled power strip, the power strip senses the power state of the USB port it is connected into, so if I can turn on and off one of the Raspberry Pi ...

Odd issue with SD partitions

Ok, so I created a SD card image that has compatible Raspberry Pi OS. Done and good. However the SD card I used is 16GB where total space used is about 3.8GB or so, I did not expand the Pi image to the full size of the SD card. Reading in the Pi forums, you can use GParted to shrink the OS partition...

3 pin DC FAN Speed Control?

Not sure if this is right forum for this question, but here is the question... If you have a 3 pin DC FAN, say 5V, connecting it to the 5V GPIO PIN, and Ground is straight-forward (allowing for the fact that the FAN does not draw to much power), but what of the 3rd pin on the FAN? It is a signal pin...

Would you mind documenting how you got Arch to load into a qemu Pi instance? I am struggling with it. Can't see to find a kernel qemu and Arch like.
