Kernel warning

Hi, I'm running an updated system with a rpi 1st gen (256MB) as a file server with two pendrives attached with a btrfs filesystem in a raid 0 configuration. For some reason the kernel is showing lots of messages like below, any ideas? TIA! $ uname -a Linux raspberrypi 3.10.34+ #661 PREEMPT Thu Mar 2...

Re: BMP085: two questions

hi! thanks for your comments, I'll buy a couple of them from ebay and regarding the distance, I'll do some tests. My idea is to build a weather station and this is the starting point.
Best regards.

BMP085: two questions

Hi I'm a newbie in electronics. I just want to build a pressure/temp sensor by using this module. I've been looking on ebay and there're lots of them for just $4 or $5 us dollars. In general, are they fake or real bosch sensors? what is the max distance permitted between the module and the GPIO? TIA...

Re: Two XBMC (.deb) compiled/prepared for users + instructio

Hi I'm finding nearly 90% CPU usage from xbmc, doing nothing, just leaving it idle in the home screen. Does this happens to others? any ideas what's going on? TIA

Re: Two XBMC (.deb) compiled/prepared for users + instructio

I'm having some issues since the last update I've performed to my system last night, first it was related to libGL.so not being found so I tried to uninstall/reinstall xbmc and now this error: sudo dpkg -i xbmc-tomaz.armhf.deb; sudo apt-get -y -f install (Reading database ... 68293 files and directo...

Re: Two XBMC (.deb) compiled/prepared for users + instructio

Hi Tomaz, everything went fine with this new release except that for some reason xbmc does not seem to be using the settings found under /root/.xbmc (had to start over the customization), is this right? One thing I noticed is that this new release is much faster than the previous one you prepared in...

Re: Two XBMC (.deb) compiled/prepared for users + instructio

But then I experienced weird effects where XBMC got stuck flickering between selected menus and the main screen. Several reboots didn't resolve the problem. once I experienced the same and I'm convinced that it was related to the GPU/RAM memory split, for some reason the recomended setting (128/128...

fsck on unclean shutdown

hi! during the last few days I experienced some unclean shutdowns for different reasons, mainly a psu problem that was fixed later.

What caught my attention was that fsck never ran in those situations for the ext4 partition while booting in order to check the journal log, why is that?

TIA.

Re: Linux kernel 3.2 on Raspbian?

I'm also new to RPi and am trying to update the kernel. I'm running raspbian but rpi-update seems not to be included, is this right? Do I have to install it from https://github.com/Hexxeh/rpi-update ? is git-core required? Last question, why a firmware update is required in order to update the kerne...

Re: Logitech K700 wireless Keyboard/mouse support

ok, one more question, how often you have to do that? just once for the initial setup, every time the battery is exhausted or what?
Thanks!

Logitech K700 wireless Keyboard/mouse support

Hi, I've just received my first RPi and it's working flawlessly with raspbian. Now I'm thinking of buying a Logitech K700 which is available for $28u$ from ebay. Apparently it needs some kind of software, does anyone know if raspbian has support for it? according to the VerifiedPeripherals page it s...

Re: High local price in my country: what are my options?

Hi! well I got today the quotation from the local Farnell distributor in my country (Argentina) and they will import by request with a price of 77.00USD + 10.5% (local tax). This is by far higher than the price announced, what other alternatives do I have ?

Re: When can I get a raspberrypi in China?

Do you know if they do worldwide shipping from China? the cost is pretty high, converted to USD = 46.70, but maybe they have free shipping and never had any trouble buying from China…

I have no hope of getting a RPI locally in Argentina.
