Re: Package Dependency Version issues with pacman

Considering the .IMG file is now 4 months old 'archlinux-hf-2012-09-18.zip' trying to piecemeal update seems like a lot of hard work, considering the latest firmware is dated 10-01-2013.

Re: Best OS for web browsing

Depends what Linux Distro you have installed and the Web Browser available from the repository. Generally Midori is recommended, but it has a few foibles. Apologies read the post wrong. The best combination is likely as follows: a) RiscOS or piCore which are both still in development with any Web B...

Re: Allied Electronics - hidden postage charges

I am a little confused, surely the total amount was shown prior to paying ?

Therefore if you did not like the cost you should of walked away, apart from Allied there is RS and Element 4.

Re: usb wifi adapter recognized but can't find networks

What Linux Distro have you installed ?

The Raspberry Pi is the actual hardware not the software.

If you are using Raspbian or Arch with the latest updates WPA-Supplicant should be installed..

I will come back to it when documentation is available, without a means of downloading packages it is just a basic command line.

Re: wheezy Virtual Box

If you mean Raspbian (Debian Wheezy 7 ARMHF based) then maybe QEMU can emulate the ARM Architecture.

Though you could ust install Debian and the LXDE Desktop on an x86 PC.

Lubuntu which is Ubuntu with LXDE has a similar look and feel to Debian and LXDE..
