Re: Alternatives or replacements for camera flex cable?

For the round cable issue... you could try cutting the insulation between the wires and bring them together.

You might want to buy some spare cables just in case your blade slips :)

Here is the method applied to IDE (P-ATA) cables:

Re: Remote access - Nat traversal?

TeamViewer for Linux is actually for Windows, running under Wine.
Don't bother installing on the R-Pi, it won't work.

Re: suggested PCB changes

Had the same problems with the micro-USB connector for power and I can't blame the connectors because everything is brand new.
Mini-USB is much more common and also has better mechanical design.
Adding another connector for power and mounting holes are a must for the next version in my opinion.

Re: skype............

Skype for Linux is not compiled for the ARM CPU in the Raspberry Pi so it won't run.
Also, the Raspberry Pi doesn't have audio input.

Re: USB Keyboard Kernel Panic

Bought a USB keyboard just for the R-Pi.
My other keyboards are using the PS/2 interface. I love mechanical keyboards, using a Dell AT101W on my main computer.

I don't want to buy more keyboards, I already have 2 spares + this USB one.

Hope this bug will get fixed soon.

Best regards,
Alex

Re: USB Keyboard Kernel Panic

I also get a kernel panic when connecting a USB keyboard.
I have measured voltage between the two test points (TP1 and TP2) while the keyboard is connected and it is within the accepted range.
What could be the problem?

Do you have a delivery date for your order? I am asking because I am from Romania too and heard many people saying that they know the shipping date. On my account there is no such thing.

Re: Ubuntu Server

Just stick with Debian, you won't notice too many differences.

The SD card image is already available so go for it

The only reason to use Ubuntu would be use the cloud computing capabilities it comes with or to get support from Canonical.

Re: Raspberry Pi Live

I've written the script a couple of months ago. I didn't make it public because I never wanted to encourage others.

I use a 5 minutes timer, but others could easily set it to a few seconds making things worse.
I posted mostly to tell that a 5 seconds delay could cause problems.
