Re: Building a new kernel

I think those instructions cover just about all major distro's EXCEPT Slackware... You can probably figure out what is needed, though. Hello! No it doesn't. It makes the mistake of presupposing that the user of the R.PI also owns a Debian or Ubuntu based system hanging around. The only people I kno...

Re: Building a new kernel

Be prepared to wait if you build "natively" - On an overclocked Rev 1 Pi it took about 6 1/2 hours... That's why cross-compilation is a better choice.

Building a new kernel

Hello! I am familiar with the steps to build a new kernel using the tools for Linux. Naturally on Intel platforms. ;) However for doing so on the Pi using Raspbian I believe I am presuming that the steps are similar ;) but that the whole business needs to launched using the root user shell after ent...

Powering a Raspberry Pi

Hello! I have here a bundle of Polaroid Polapulse batteries. These were the ones originally constructed for their compact cameras. Has anyone managed to obtain any and gotten them to work powering their devices? :idea: I ask because most of my [planned] applications won't be anywhere near a power po...

Hello!
Very good. Both Series 74 and Series 74C or Series 74HC. Ideally it would also include some PLD items as well.

A Pi could do that too , it has Ethernet and UART. ghans Hello! By that I mean the digital logic examples I build during my day to...

Logic and the Internet

Hello! In this website http://www.homebrewcpu.com/ the author describes everything he was involved in bringing that system to life, and eventually online.

I've been working with computers since the days of the Apple family, taught myself R6502 assembler when FPBasic (Applesoft) on them proved to be too slow. Then switched ...

Can the PI work as a DHCP server?

Hello! My device a Raspi-B arrived as part of the starter kit, via the methods of being a birthday present. Right now I'm choosing between one of two specific distributions, in this case the first being naturally the one mentioned on the downloads portion of this site, Raspian, itself being Debian b...
