Re: Price hike???

http://www.cpc.co.uk have the correct prices (correct as in $25 and $35), £16.21 ex VAT for one Model A and £23.39 ex VAT for one Model B. Not sure how that's the correct pricing as you would need to use different exchanges rates to get $25 -> $16.21 and $35 -> £23.39 and it seems too far out to be...

Re: Price hike???

Tried to buy same one today, and price is GBP: 20.00 (excl. VAT and taxes) or USD 31.80. I'm seeing free shipping included in that price. If you look at the higher volume breaks, the shipping cost amortizes out and you end up back at $25. Cheers Eben Tried to buy same one today, and price is GBP: 2...

Re: Price hike???

No price hike. In the UK, Farnell and RS should be selling at the equivilent of $35 + S&H. Any other distributors may well be putting on a markup, but RS and Farnell should be $35. Model B prices may be that, but RS in the UK are charging roughly $31 for a Model A, whereas CPC are charging $25. Stu...

Re: dual boot - use different NIC?

Forgive me if I have misunderstood you, but couldn't you just have two NICs in each PC, one wired to the Windows network and the other to the Linux network.
In Windows disable the Linux NIC in device manager and in Linux disable the Windows NIC.

Hi Geffers, I have a DVI monitor (not a TV, I'm afraid) with analogue audio, I don't recall having to do anything to make it work.

Re: logitech ex110 problems

Hi
Is the keyboard faulty or can you not find the pipe key?
If it the latter then it's usually on the backslash key.
Hold down the 'shift' key and press \
The other option is hold down 'alt gr' key (the alt key to the right of the space bar) and press ¬ which is left of the 1 key

It still holds true for plasma displays. They usually have an option to shift the display a few pixels built into the monitor.

The transmission daemon runs as a different user (login details and daemon user are not the same), called debian-transmission and your hard drive is only accessible by your username pi. So transmission cannot write to the folder therefore it states the drive is full. Could you, as a temporary measur...

Re: Hard drive not full but no free space

Most network filing protocols do not have the ability to test free space on a per-directory basis. So if the directory being exported and mounted is /home/pi or above, then the client will be likely to assume that the free space in that directory, 1.9G, also applies to the subdirectory /home/pi/Mai...
