Re: wlan0 strange routing issues

I tried your test with telnet and got your fail. However, I tried with putty and the connection went through fine. The archive.raspberrypi.org server redirects to a https (SSL) page. Maybe that is the problem with telnet, rather than the routing.

Re: show info and play webradio

I don't see any info (playlist) on that link, just audio. It runs at 8-10% CPU on my RPi 3.

edit: I listen to Pandora using pianobar. It uses 5% CPU with the playlist.

Re: show info and play webradio

I'm listening to www.radio.net classic rock on my RPi B with Wheezy. Def Leppard playing now at about 80% CPU average showing the playlist, and about 45% with no playlist. On my RPi 3 running Jessie and Chromium, the same station with the playlist is showing 18% average. Got a link to your favorite ...

Re: 3D video with 2 cameras

You may want to use 6by9's suggestion. It is a little more pricey that a couple RPis, but it should output a dual image if you plan on using a VR headset to view the video.

Re: 3D video with 2 cameras

Are you planning on capturing a single image, or motion video? Real time or recorded for later playback?

Re: Audio driver for mplayer

I have everything working except wmv files and mp4 files that use a AC3 audio. I think that type does require the mpeg2 license. I don't have the license, but if you do, let me know if this works and I will purchase it. I have this running on a RPi3/Pixel system and it uses less than 12% CPU even ru...

Re: Audio driver

I found most of the the answer. I had to load the utilities for the file types. It works will all but mp4 types. I think I need a license for that. The avi type works great. sudo apt-get install libmpg123-dev sudo apt-get install libasound2-dev sudo apt-get install alsa-utils sudo apt-get install al...

Audio driver for mplayer

I am attempting to compile MPlayer v1.3.0, and all appears to compile ok. However, when I run it, I get a message that it can't find the audio driver. I've tried alsa and aac, but it still gives me the message "Could not open/initialize audio device". I can't use the mplayer in the repository becaus...

Re: Problem, LAMP + FTP 600 chmod

It should be an entry in /etc/vsftpd.conf. If you are uploading as an anonymous user then you can change the permissions with chown_upload_mode. Default is 600.

Re: Raspberry Pi only sees router on network

Are you aware that some routers can block device-to-device communication on a wlan interface? My routers call this "default-forwarding". If it is set to yes, devices can communicate with each other. If set to no, then they can't. What make and model router are you using?

Re: rpi cant ping outside of subnet unless www

I had to think about it for a minute. I do my best thinking in the shower. While humming "You Can't Always Get What You Want", I realized you could probably port forward the router labelled "my router" port to the PC and use the "my router" ip to access the PC. Maybe you can "Get What You Need".

Re: rpi cant ping outside of subnet unless www

The router you labelled as "my router" probably has a masquerade in it. That would make it difficult to route through.

I presume you do not have access to the router labelled "ISP modem/router". That makes it even more difficult if not impossible.

Re: C mysql headers

Thanks! While I was waiting, I tried libmysqld-dev, and it seems to work. Is there any advantage to libmysqlclient-dev?

C mysql headers

Greetings from Miramar Beach, Florida!

I am trying to import Linux C code that interfaces to a MySQL database. The code requires including the files my_global.h and mysql.h. What repository package do I need to install to get those MySQL development headers?

Re: How/Where to download C/C++

I used C to write a udp "server" that runs on bootup. Required entering the program name in "/etc/rc.local". You need to start that program as a daemon in the C code tho. Not hard at all.
