I think udev doesn't work, and there's no useful documentation

I've found several forum posts about this, and none have helped me. I have an mp4 on a usb thumb drive. I want it to automatically play using omxplayer when I plug in the drive. I wrote a simple little bash script that goes a little somethin' like this: #!/bin/bash omxplayer /media/pi/drivename/vide...

Re: Pi 3 broken SD slot

The metal cage broke off. Inspecting it, it looks like the cage is held on at four corners by solder pads. It pulled one of the copper pads off of the board with it. I could probably get it back in place with some solder or CA glue, though I'm also tempted to replace the whole card reader. Either wa...

Pi 3 broken SD slot

My Pi 3 fell off the table and the SD card slot broke. SD card was laying on the floor when I picked up the Pi. Anyone know how to desolder and replace the card slot?

Re: How to Run NFS Server on Raspberry Pi

I'm about at my wits end.

Re: How to Run NFS Server on Raspberry Pi

I followed the instructions on the website linked above. It corrupted my SD card.

Samba doesn't work, NFS destroys operating systems...there's no such thing as a Linux file server, is there?

So to clarify, you want to: run a Pi + an unspecified 12V device from the same 12V rechargeable battery control both with a rocker switch When the rocker switch is moved ON, the Pi boots up and the device turns on When the rocker switch is moved OFF, the device shuts off, and the Pi automatically sh...

multiple webcams for still pictures

So I've got a 3D imaging project I'm working on, and I've got a couple competing ideas for how to proceed. I basically need to take lots of still images of the same object from many angles simultaneously. Most of the discussions I've seen about multiple cameras are about video, I just need still ima...

Can't start VNC at boot in Jessie

The script on raspberrypi.org to run tightvncserver in /etc/init.d at boot doesn't work in Jessie. Crontab refuses to work. Other than going back to Wheezy (the unbroken one) I'm out of ideas. So I'm going to ask four questions: What did they break, how did they break it, how do I fix it, and how do...

Re: MQTT/Mosquitto...HELP!

A simple tutorial was what I was hunting for. Most of the ones I've found are geared toward attaching to some IoT service, which I don't want to do.
I did find this guy: https://youtu.be/OHEsy9oJEi0 so that's a start.

How does get_orientation actually work?

I'm working on a Sense Hat powered quadcopter autopilot. Thing is, the documentation for the python library is really sparse. It basically says attitude = sense.get_orientation() generates a dictionary with keys pitch, roll and yaw, so wham! In one line of code you know which way is down. But this r...

Re: Which way is Pitch and Roll

My Sense Hat hasn't arrived yet, but given that image with the axes labelled, the SD card is considered the "nose" of the Pi, so tilting the SD card up and down is pitch, tilting the HDMI port up and down is Roll, and rotating the board on the flat is Yaw.

How to intentionally disconnect from wifi

My google fu has failed me.

On every other Wifi-enabled device I own, you can "forget" a given network so the machine won't automatically log in. How do you accomplish this on a Raspberry Pi?

It works. It's not perfect, I suspect there's no hardware acceleration since the CPU usage reads high and the frame rate chugs a bit, but youtube works correctly out of the box and I haven't managed to crash the browser yet.
