Re: Launch Apps at Boot

Great - that works with only one issue.

I get a please enter sudo password for user CPressland. I believe this is part of the NTP daemon waiting for time sync.

Anyway I can add a delay? For example

Finish Booting, sit at login prompt, wait 10 seconds, auto-login?

Re: pfSense / Networking Cluster

I am a big fan of PFsense. Being able to run PFsense on a Pi would be great for home use. 2 Nics may be an issue though Not an issue, a Smart Switch can be an intermediary between two VLANs to handle the WAN>LAN connections LAn performance is severely limited by being connected to the USB bus. True...

Create Custom Boot Logo

Hey Guys,

I'm going to be using the Debian Linux Distro for a project I'm working on at the moment and require that we use our Logo while the device boots (going to be connected to a TV and Powered from said TV).

Can anybody assist on how to have Debian display this logo during boot?

Thanks

pfSense / Networking Cluster

Hi All, I've been doing some research and planning into a possible Network Management Cluster using Raspberry Pi's; fragmented services would allow for vast amounts of processing power with little overhead bandwidth. Example: Actual pfSense RPi handling Firewall and WAN > LAN comms ArchLinux / NanoB...

Re: Headless Torrect client that doesn't kill the Pi?

Well, I'm using Arch Linux with a USB 2TB EXT3 Hard Drive and transmission-daemon works fine. Not quite as impressive as my HP MicroServer, but still, not bad! Getting a good 10Mb/s out of it, where as the HP naturally saturates my connection (100Mb/s). I'd like to test SabNZBd on the device too. Bu...

Re: Oracle's Java on the Raspberry Pi

Out of curiosity, why would you want to run Java on a RPi? We're talking about a platform that can just about run on a Pentium 4.

Re: Debian + Logitech G5 = High Eth Latency

Hey All, I have successfully diagnosed this now, the issue is both a power and a driver issue. When the Logitech G5 is combined with an Apple Keyboard the drivers somehow conflict, this can be observed during the boot phase of the Pi or running 'dmesg' in the terminal. When the G5 is used by itself ...

Re: Debian + Logitech G5 = High Eth Latency

Well I got everything working regarding Q3, but networking still dies when attempting to use a USB Mouse, Arch, Debian and even OpenELEC, same issue. I guess the G5 and Pi just really don't like each other.

Debian + Logitech G5 = High Eth Latency

Hey Guys, I've been spending most of my time on Arch Linux building OpenELEC and setting up a Time Machine Server etc. However, I'll be taking my Pi into work tomorrow and thought I'd show what it can do by firing up Quake 3. To demo this, I figured the latest Debian Image should be my first port of...
