Re: Access another systems files, but run them locally

Perhaps you are just familiar with the Windows way of doing it, so it seems second nature to you. I would be totally lost if I tried to do anything of the above on a Windows machine. As for 200 steps/10 applications - well, I've shown above that it doesn't need that. There may be 10 different appli...

Re: Access another systems files, but run them locally

I have a debian machine i want to act as a "server". The Pi is the client. It will be accessing (Mainly read, but lets assume complete access, security isn't an issue) on the "server". At this point, I don't really care if login is necessary, but I would prefer that yes, the Pi needs to log in to th...

Access another systems files, but run them locally

Ive been trying for the past week to achieve this, but everything either doesn't work, or lacking in any descriptive information, which is basically just as effective as not working. What I need is to be able to access the files on another machine (Running Debian) but I need to maintain the Raspberr...

Re: dabian os

Raspbian is a Pi adapted version of Debian. So you can't have both unless you are dual booting.

Risc OS is a completely different operating system, so unless multi-booting, no it wont be included.

Well if you want to get into that level of detail, then you might as well explain electrical engineering. But that isn't practical. Handing a Pi to an 11 year old and saying "have fun" isn't the way to go. As an adult, I would hope you understand what a Pi needs to function, and that the 5V 1000mA p...

I need a command or commands to return just my local IP, nothing else. Its rather amazing how hard it is to do this, nothing i found in my searches worked or returned more then just the address.

Re: Local networking using Tethering

If your subnet mask is 255.255.255.0, then your pi and PC are on completely different networks.

Your phone is on 192.168.1.0 and your Pi is on 192.168.42.0

You have to link the networks somehow. Or change your whole subnet to 255.255.0.0

Easiest way to share a filesystem from your Debian system so your RPi's can mount it is either 1) samba or 2) NFS. http://www.howtoforge.com/debian-wheezy-standalone-server-with-tdbsam-backend You'll also need the samba common package on your RPi's.

Re: Connect dvi display to Raspberry?

You can use DVI, Ive done it several times.

As for getting audio, ive not done. DVI doesn't support Audio, but HDMI does, so you will have to use the analog audio port for that.

Debian it is.

Raspbian was the first Linux OS ive really used (CentOS from a class I took) so I wasn't sure what else was out there aside form Ubuntu, but personally, I don't really like that flavor.

All the operating systems have some form of a browser. Raspbian has Midori pre-installed, but you can also get something like Chromium. Assuming you can get to the internet with an ethernet cable or wireless, I really cant see why it wouldn't work.

The only place i can find that sells them is Aliexpress.com, and I wouldn't exactly call it a reputable place. Plus, like I said, it was designed for the PS3, nothing else, so getting it to work would probably be way more work then worth.
