Re: Xvisor ARM hypervisor ported to Raspberry Pi

What?
Maybe in Raspberry Pi 2 when the processor gets a boost.
My GUI is slow enough.
My remote ssh session is also slow enough.

Re: RPi B v2: Made in UK vs China

I noticed that my made in China one has trouble with the USB at about once every day or so. It simply forgets its USB devices. I can still re-plug a keyboard and reboot. It just won't reconise my USB WIFI. Un-plugging and re-plugging the USB WIFI just causes the system to force reset.

Re: Element 14 Wi Pi

do you think they're exactly the same?

If they are then theres no reason to pay twice the amount for the wipi when the tenda or others are the same.

Element 14 Wi Pi

I couldn't find much on this usb wifi adapter.
However when it came [amazon.com], I opened the tiny box and I noticed the element 14 wi pi adapter looks exactly like the tenda w311n wifi adapter.

I took it apart and saw the rt5370n chip in there.

Anyone familiar with either of these wifi adapters?

Re: Multipul Wifi Networks

Two files to edit:
/etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf
/etc/network/interfaces

And yes, you can use the gui one.
startx
then look in your start menu for the wifi gui.

Re: Wifi Dongle

You don't have to install a thing to get that particular wifi to work.
Just plug it directly in and type
lsusb
and paste it in your next reply.
Then startx
then run the wifi gui that's already in the start menu.

No. It won't spin up.
Your RPi won't start either.
You'll need more than 1A.

Discharge static before handling. Use anti static bags for transporting etc.
I see you have a static IP. Now go and get another RPi as a DNS server....and a domain.

Re: Raspberry Pi Camera Module - how static sensitive ?

Yeah, you'd want to touch a water pipe or the light switch plate to discharge yourself. What I do, since I don't want to die for small electronics is I make my own ground. I have a simple plate with a single wire bolted to it. Then wire it to a large piece of metal. Large such as a metal cabinet. It...
