Raspbian hosted on Raspbian

Fri Jul 20, 2012 10:22 pm

I'm not certain that I'd recommend this for everyone, but the folks at Mythic Beasts are hosting a Raspbian mirror on a Raspbian Raspberry Pi server.

Good stuff. :)

I'd like to have my raspi where I'd be confident enough to run as a webserver.

Is there any possibilities that they would share their hardware setup details? Please be specific with model #'s and mfg.
What OS? Any tweeks such as mem split , etc they are using?
How are they powering it? powered hub? Model. part number?
SD card? Model/part # ?
Mouse and Kb? Model Part# ?
Raspi eth0 hooked to hub, switch, router?
Any info to get a rock solid Raspi? I want to finalize my hardware setup and move on to bigger and better things.

Thanks for any input. I do like Raspbian much better than the Squeeze distro. Great work on that.

Most of the questions you asked are answered in the linked article. There are no part numbers but still...

I realize that. The point is I don't want to buy accesories, get them home and find out they don't work, take them back and so on. :) I found out the hard way that going on specs alone isn't bullet proof.

Thanks.

Why would you need a hub anyway, it's just another thing to potentially cause problems.

Right my point exactly. :D Every piece of this Pi puzzle is another variable and I want to eliminate all or most variables.

Personally if I was going to do this i'd get a decent 5V PSU that could supply both Pi and drive and then mod cables as nessacerry to hook it up and I wouldn't use a hub at all.

My ultimate goal is to have enough usb ports to handle, Kb, mouse, usb wifi, usb hdd(s) and maybe later items.

I'm seriously considering taking a pc power supply, make a circuit to regulate all the power rails I need +5, +- 12v, 3.3v ...etc. Power everything off that. Using powered hubs, phone chargers isn't giving me any confidence that I want to put this baby into production! :shock:
