Logzilla

Yesterday I spent a couple of hours trying to get Logzilla working on a Raspberry Pi. I only found out the first time that I tried to run Logzilla that it uses ionCube (only mentioned in v3.1 documentation). At present there is NO ionCube loader available for the pi (ARM) .... so don't waste your ti...

Has anyone created an SNMP MIB for the RPi?

Re: [Q]hd44780 lcd screen

I can sure share my solution. However it might not be the most well-coded one ;) During wiring I was looking at the specifications in this wiki: http://elinux.org/RPi_Low-level_peripherals 1. I soldered GND, VB0 (Backlight Ground) and V0 (Contrast Adjustment) of the LCD to the GND pin of the Raspi....

Thank you for sharing, it's still coded better than any C I could write!

Re: [Q]hd44780 lcd screen

I don't think you need the level-shifters since you usually only send from the Pi to the LCD and don't need to read any data coming from the display. And most 5V-pins will read 3.3V as a logical "1" so it might just work. But don't blame me if you fry anything while trying :P Yes jannis, you are ri...

Out of complete ignorance.......why not connect a LCD panel directly to the GPIO pins?

A netbook would have worked out cheaper. A used netbook even more so. And a broken one with dead screen and/or battery, still more. These days I'm using netbooks as servers.

Re: Design Case for the Raspberry Pi

I'm sure that the case wouldn't look too good. My thinking was instead of ruining a very nice design how about seeing if the base can hold the R-Pi firmly. That would allow me to remove the top cover if I wanted to get to the connectors and replace it once I'm finished?

<r>It seems to me that everybody is trying hard to make their cases fit as snugly around a R-Pi as possible.
