Re: USB wifi dongle getting hot, disabling itself(?)

Its a wifi adapter in the usb port, that connects to the client, and the rpi3 internal Wi-Fi that serves as an AP The point is to both amplify the signal, and make logging into the public wifi easier, because only one device has to do it. And to maintain connection to the Openplotter services, while...

Re: Serial connection with dumb terminal

Hi dave,

For now I've been testing with the minicom utility. But I will try that.
I was also wondering how the stop bits and parity are handled when using the serial console

Re: Serial connection with dumb terminal

The default is 1200. I dont know about the up speed. The manual gives me key combinations to set the baud rate, but unlike the other ones that I figured out, I'm not getting a physical confirmation that it worked

Serial connection with dumb terminal

Hello! I'm trying to make a serial connection between the Pi3 and an Alcatel Minitel, but I'm having some issues. I realize that there are a lot of guides on this, but those are all from before the Pi3 or before /etc/inittab was removed. Additionally, my minitel is apparently a different, but simila...

Re: Using a minitel as terminal. software suggestions?

I'll be using the method described in this post https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=44932 (so yes, I did see that post.) as for the voltages, the output to the Pi should be 5v, which a specialized board will convert to 3. however, I've read somewhere that the output voltage can be qui...

Re: Multiplatform boot

When you use a physical Pi, you can configure it with remote desktop and open that on your regular computer. You can then work on the Pi using the same screen and keyboard. Your Pi becomes a window you can open at any time. The connection can be an Ethernet cable for a Pi 2 or 3. A Zero can connect...

Re: Multiplatform boot

It won't really be any faster from as USB flash drive. It may be very slightly faster, or it could be slower as well, depending on how fast the USB stick is compared to the SD card, but it's still going to be slow regardless (which is what I've been telling you). There are ways to speed things up a...

Re: Multiplatform boot

Pi uses ARM chip and Intel uses Intel chip. They are different. Software has to be compiled for the right chip. There is an Ubuntu with MATE for Pi. It is slow. Use a Pi 3. https://www.raspberrypi.org/downloads/ The latest Raspbian, Ubuntu, and Linux Mint are based on Debian Jessie. Most software i...
