NZ hardware buyers guide

For NZ users of the R-Pi, I have found several good pieces of hardware that work with the raspberry pi quite well: Note that I use Arch linux Arm, so some drivers mught be different versions and results may vary.

Re: Netbook Pi

Please, anyone looking at this trying to learn electronics, look elsewhere.

I don't want people trying this circuit and frying something (or themselves).

@sightlight That circuit just won't work. Ever.

I think you'll find that those are all libraries licenced under OSS licences that someone has ported to Mac. They were made for the *nix platform first, by other people. Apple still is incredibly monopolistic.

Why not put a MICRO-SD slot on the board and more GIO pins



This was talked about in the earlier stages, just after the alphas were made. A microSD card is too fragile, which is why a more robust SD card slot was chosen.

Re: Do I need a gertboard to run a servo

You could wire up a relay to do the switching for you. Cut out the middle man.
If you are going to use a servo, you can directly connect the servo to the R-Pi. You won't need a gertboard
