Re: Could use some help with SD-card programming

<t>Hi Gert,<br/> <br/> Maybe it would be a nice (messy i know) idea to copy the function of the SD card duplicator machine by buying say 10 SD card readers, get them on a powered usb hub or similar... and then just dedecate a linux box that can DD the images (with an appropriate block size of 1MB). ...

Re: Power for USB external 2.5" harddisk

<t>As far as I know, the Raspberry Pi's usb ports have a self-resetting fuse that only allows them to provide 100mA whereas your harddisk will need at least 500mA. Therefore you'll either need some kind of external power supply or powered usb hub.<br/> <br/> I personally have invested in a powered u...

Are you hosting the torrent tracker yourself? The myplugbox site looks like it is probably your own?

If so what software are you using ?

Re: ArchlinuxARM on Raspberry Pi

I was just thinking... surely that figure can't be right? How are the 128mb versions ever going to work well with the gpu taking up 70 meg.

Maybe you should ask a kernel dev about this?
