Re: Raspberry pi 2 doesn't boot from any microSD card.

Have you tried swapping the PSUs around? I had a new Pi2 that kept corrupting the SD card shortly after boot, in frustration I swapped the PSU from one of my other Pis and it's been fine ever since. Might be worth a shot to see if one of your others suddenly stops booting. :-)

Re: Not recognizing touch input from Acer T230H touchscreen

Hi, don't know if you're still having trouble with this but I've got mine working on the latest Raspbian with almost no extra effort at all. It definitely didn't used to work, back in 2012 when I had a model B but I just got a Pi2 and downloaded the latest Raspbian, plugged the Acer USB in almost on...

Re: Did the soft-fp version download just disappear?

It's not related at all, the creation and distribution of the raspberry pi foundation images (of both debian armel and raspbian armhf) has nothing to do with the raspbian project. The 2013-05-29 image seems to be available at http://mirror.bytemark.co.uk/raspberrypi/images/debian/7/2013-05-29-wheez...

Yep, that what I was getting at - I wouldn't have expected someone to actually edit the page and remove the links...

Re: Did the soft-fp version download just disappear?

Thanks Redhawk - I guess I expected the links to stop working rather than a section of the webpage to disappear...! Hope it comes back soon, or I can google a copy of it for the weekend elsewhere :-)

Did the soft-fp version download just disappear?

Hi - I've been playing with Mono and having reached the conclusion I should run it on the soft-fp version of Wheezy instead of the hard-fp, I came back to the downloads page today to get the image for soft-fp and the links were gone! I'm 99.99% positive they were there at the weekend :-) Have they b...

Re: raspberrypi stickers!

Yeah, hoping the store comes back online soon - I want to try and get a t-shirt for my 2-year old daughter. Start 'em young! :-)

Re: Using Apple Power Supplies...

I've got an iPod charger from a while back, a UK main one with the detachable pin-part and a USB socket on the back. It claims to be 5v 1A and it's happy running my Pi. I've got a few unbranded phone-type chargers too which claim to be 5v 1A and they've all driven the Pi without a problem (I normall...

Re: Delphi on Raspberry Pi

Hi, I'm a full-time Delphi Developer (from D1 back in about '95, currently spend most of my time in 2007 but have XE2/FireMonkey etc all installed and ready to explore). I'd be quite interested in using Delphi on the Pi too. I've recently been picking up bits of Mono (C#) and Python to help get some...

Re: Using Pi to run a shop window slideshow

I did something like this, firstly using Python, Qt and Mono on Acer Revo Aspire One machines running Ubuntu, and indeed this is something I want to do on the Pi too. I had a small Mono (C#) program that would connect to a file server on the network (or later, an FTP server across the web) and fetch...
