Seeing the exact error message for the 'hg init' (without sudo) might help as well?
yes my .hgrc is in /home/pi
as for hg init error:
abort: permission denied: /home/www-data/web2py/applications/.hg
or somewhere else except at home/pi.

but as soon as you install wordpress it's slow. It's been unfortunately a fairly common statement here, that Wordpress is a dog. The low end hardware of the Pi, which manages nearly every other application quite well, really forces people to realise, just what a dog it is. There are a few options t...

Re: Need help with Mercurial

Is there a reason for using 'sudo' with the hg commit? That might confuse the hg app, as you most likely have created the .hgrc for yourself and not for the superuser... 'Home directory' is the currently legged in user's default directory: on recent Windows systems this would be C:\Users\<username>...

Need more information. For example, what kind of home automation do you have? X-10, Z-Wave, Zigbee, others? You need to do two things : 1. Find some way to interface with your existing home automation system (receive status updates, issue commands). 2. Develop your own web pages to invoke code to i...

Didn't even know it was being used as a IRC bot until I was doing some tcpdumps (network packet traces) and saw tons of connections. It had ...

You must choose the file before unzip. if you are using command prompt to check, just drag the zip file to command prompt window. if you are using md5-sha-1 checksum utility (http://download.cnet.com/MD5-SHA-1-Checksum-Utility/3000-2092_4-10911445.html) , just browse and select the zip file. it shou...

Re: Error writing files : permission denied

These system files should be modified as the root user. So the nano commands should be prepended with sudo as: sudo nano /etc/hosts It looks as if you've missed the step at A3 where you are told to 'sudo su' which means all subsequent commands will be executed as the superuser (root).

Once unzipped, it will have a different checksum which will not match the stated checksum, if it was calculated for the zipped version.
Oh yes it works now! thank you so much :)
