thanks for the link - I take your point about the forum. But it is also supposed to be helpful and until you posted... It wasn't helping me!bredman wrote:All the instructions are on the wiki at http://elinux.org/R-Pi_Hub#Getting_Started
A forum is not a suitable place to give you detailed instructions. A forum is a place to discuss your problems. This is a large audience, so what may seem to be absolutely basic to one person may seem absolute gibberish to another person.
I don't think anyone was confused by this - misled maybe... there has been a lot of PR and the massive reaction is not confusion... it is a massive enthusiasm to do something interesting and different - the worse thing this forum and community can do is alienate people like me ... and yet it appears to be doing just that! (this is obviously not aimed at you! your advice has been great and I really am looking forward to exploring!)bredman wrote:A lot of people are getting confused because the RPi is not ready for beginners yet. Remember that this is only the developer release. This is why there is so little documentation available at the moment. All of the gurus are busy writing documentation like the wiki, the magazines, and the educational documents.
Since you have accidentally wandered into a developer release, you may be tempted to put your RPi into a drawer until next winter. Please don't do this. You can help by trying to use the documentation that we have available and let us know how it feels to you. It's not enough for the documentation to be technically correct, it must also be approachable for the new users.
So this is a call to all new users - please do your best to struggle along for the moment. You can do your bit to pave the way for those following behind. And no matter how frustrating you find it, remember that every mistake will help you learn a bit more.
Thanks for that Steve however it seems Midori doesn't like the mobile version of facebook either as it produces an error message about a non-defined entity (which it says is the 'nbsp' HTML statement) on line 159 which is a line that doesn't actually exist in the page source anyway.
It's not a requirement, but it's certainly recommended.PeteV wrote:Er....how do I do that, and do I need to do that?
