Re: STICKY: Jessie (now defunct and replaced with Stretch) Q&A

In the thread title it says Jessie is "now defunct". Does that mean existing installations could seize to function after updating via " apt full-upgrade"? I run Dnsmasq on a Jessie Pi 1 B+ and am getting more and more strange errors after updates and reboots (which I do every few months). Today afte...

Re: Connecting a photo diode and measuring light's frequenci

I understand, thanks. I think I have a BPW34 photo diode lying around here somewhere. But I believe I can't directly connect it as simple as the IR receiver. I should probably give up on this project as I have no electrical knowledge. I read about a 10K resistor I'd probably have to use, maybe solde...

Re: Connecting a photo diode and measuring light's frequenci

I now connected an IR sensor as shown here: http://learn.adafruit.com/assets/5909

Where do I start from here? Can you give me any links to tutorials on how to save and analyze the incoming electric current?

Connecting a photo diode and measuring light's frequencies?

I think maybe it could be possible to use a Raspberry Pi and a photo diode to measure the frequencies of light sources. To hold the photo diode near to a incandescent bulb and then get the value 100 Hz or 120 Hz (depending on country). It is probably very easy for an experienced GPIO user, but I don...

Re: Controlling LAN LEDs individually

Do you know how to install libusb-0.1-4 in Arch Linux? Because there is only libusb 1. Libusb's homepage does not list the release 0.1.

Any way to rewrite the code to work with libusb-1?

Edit: this is a solution:

Code: Select all

pacman -S libusb-compat
It's version 0.1.5-1 and works. Could compile and execute.

Re: Dnsmasq won't work anymore after a reboot

ip addr show says there is an IPv6 address with prefix fe80::/64. A quick research told me this should be the equivalent of 169.254. in IPv4. So your assumption might be true: During system start Dnsmasq may think that 169.254. is the local network, and applies its rules (block non-local network re...

Hello,

I would like to disable the LAN LEDs of my Raspberry Pi 2.
I noticed this thread is old and it was created when the Raspberry Pi 2 did not yet exist.
Is this the only method to disable the LAN LEDs or is there a simpler method especially for the Raspberry Pi 2?
