Re: Surveillance camera based on BuildRoot and Motion

Does motionPie's BuildRoot have i2c support? I'd like to use a PiNoIR with a Bright Pi https://www.pi-supply.com/product/brigh ... pberry-pi/ for illumination. Thanks.

Re: Surveillance camera based on BuildRoot and Motion

Just installed 20150215 on a Pi 2 via writeimage.sh on an old Pi B. Up and running in no time without any problems (apart from it not liking the first 2 Logitech webcams I tried).

Good work as usual - many thanks.

Re: Surveillance camera based on BuildRoot and Motion

Hi

Should Rasberry Pi 2 work ok with latest MotionPie? I can't seem to get it to boot - quick flicker of the activity light at power up then nothing. Am trying with a fresh image written with writeimage.sh

Thanks

Re: Surveillance camera based on BuildRoot and Motion

As a developer who feels the pain of getting new demands within hours of each new release, I just wanted to say that I've updated seamlessly and all works well. Thanks again for a fantastic product which is very much appreciated, and a Happy New Year to you!

Re: Surveillance camera based on BuildRoot and Motion

Is there any ability to grab the latest image as a jpeg, rather than a page which displays the latest image? I have a public-facing webserver which I'd like to serve the jpeg from (via a PHP readfile script), without opening up motionPie to the world.

Re: Surveillance camera based on BuildRoot and Motion

Hi - 2 questions... Firstly, would you rather that I ask a question here or create an issue in GitHub? Secondly, I updated from 20140924 to 20140928 using the Software Update button in the web interface, and the interface now shows that I am indeed running 20140928 . I can see that the Reboot button...

Re: Surveillance camera based on BuildRoot and Motion

Thanks - after a few more attempts, and following your pointer with /dev/sda, I finally got up and running. Need to put it through its paces but the web interface looks really impressive.

Is there a significant difference in performance with motionPie betweeen 256 & 512 MB models?

Re: Surveillance camera based on BuildRoot and Motion

Use writeimage.sh from a Linux if you must use motionPie with a Raspberry PI model A. Let me know what the output of the command looks like. I used writeimage.sh on a Pi: pi@raspberrypi ~ $ ./writeimage.sh -d /dev/sda1 -i ./motionPie-20140924.img -n orchard:xxxxxx :: writing disk image to sdcard 14...

Re: Surveillance camera based on BuildRoot and Motion

Sadly I remain totally baffled. Have now tried writing to 2 different SD cards from Windows, Mac and a Pi running Raspbian.

I have no problem writing my Raspbian backup using any of the above and then booting on either Pi, but I just can't get this MotionPie (or the previous image) to boot on either.

Re: Surveillance camera based on BuildRoot and Motion

Thanks - I'll give these suggestions a go. I'm using an official Apple iPad PSU which is rated 5.1V, 2.1A and has never given me any problems with other PI images, even with loads of gubbins hanging off the GPIO. I shall keep trying, including using writeimage.sh for the A (apologies, I had missed t...

pacman -Syu

Seems to be a lot of advice around about updating Arch after initial install. However, I can't find a definitive guide as to how to handle the subsequent prompts - any chance of a sticky with comprehensive update advice? Specifically, after first login (via ssh) I type: pacman -Syu and receive: :: T...

Arch 3.1.9-23 - Can't Login

Booting to Arch Linux 3.1.9-23 (archlinuxarm-13-06-2012), I can't login with root:root via console or ssh (using different physical keyboards on each). No problems at all on Debian. I've checked the hash, and re-written the SD card several times, but I always get the same thing: user:root, password:...
