Re: ERROR /lib/modules/3.12.22+/modules.dep.bin

Yep, I rewrote the SD card with the 2014-06-20-wheezy, deleted all system files from the harddisk and re-installed, ( I'm sure there is a way to 'un-upgrade' but I don't know how ), Anyway .... All is now well after doing the 2014-06-20 updates. The problem appears when upgrading from 2014-06-20-......

Re: 4GB with NOOBS says 0mb

Wow! Bloatware on a RPi. :D I don't need Scratch, X11, LXDE, Java or Wolfram on my RPi when it's running as a server. I'm in total agreement with Jim and Doug, Lets have the 'educational version' the 'noob version' and a basic system. Whatever we want we can install and not have it foisted on us. I...

Re: HowTo Telnet/ssh to PI in Raspbian “wheezy”

I have ssh setup and have hardwired? the PI wiredb i/f IP and wireless i/f IP using static IP settings in /etc/network/interfaces.
the PI keeps the same IP so long as you dont change the booting SD to one with different settings.

Re: Accessing SSH outside local network

Using SSH into Raspi from remote locations is relativly easy. The problem comes when the routers IP changes due to external reasons, e.g.power cut, reset, ISP IP renewal etc. What would be nice would be a script running on the PI, detecting the routers changed IP and then automagically sending the n...

Re: /etc/network/interfaces for nearly all occasions

I'm no expert but it looks ok to my eyes. I think the best way forward is to change your router's wireless security to open, re-configure the /etc/network/interfaces to:- auto wlan0 wireless-essid UR_ESSID wireless-mode managed Try connecting and if you still can't connect, look elsewhere for the pr...

Re: GPIO and TTL serial

Not sure how relevant this will be...
TTL serial into MAX232 (inverter/Buffer) inverts the TTL.
So if the TTL out of the Pi is true TTL serial then you need a non inverting buffer chip.
Not looked into this. Gomments Cert?
