Removing systemd files ?

I notice when running $ locate -i systemd that there are a lot of *systemd* files in my installation, but a $ ps aux -A | grep systemd shows nothing of systemd running, and shows init as the PID 1 process. Does this mean I can happily remove all the systemd files, and reclaim that much space on my S...

Case for the Raspberry Pi 2

Will the Raspberry Pi 2 fit in a case made for the Raspberry B+ ?

Ignoring having to open up the case for access to additional connectors.

A tale of woe, and a WIFI riddle.

For some time I had noticed that while my Pi would boot normally after a night's rest, rebooting while hot it would cause a mort of mmcblk errors, and the boot failed; this was worked around by taking the SD card to my desktop, and running a # fsck -f /dev/sdc2 ; this never did not find any error, b...

Khan Academy Lite: eth0 NAD wlan0 ?

I have ka-lite set-up and running, and it works very well when accessed through the eth0 (fixed) IP address; trying to access through the wlan0 (also fixed) IP address gives no result. - Does this mean that it can only be accessed through one of the net interfaces at a time ? - Or can it be accessed...

SSH through the wifi connetion ?

My Raspberry Pi has both a wired (eth0) and wifi (wlan0) connections, with fixed IP addresses.

I can successfully ping both the eth0 and wlan0 IP addresses, but can only ssh through the eth0 one.

Have I missed something ?

Re: NOOB 1.3.0 never stops initializing?

I have the same problem; booted NOOBS, and it has been telling me to wait while it is initializing all night long.

Could it be due to to the fact that the LAN I am on uses fixed IP addresses ?

Should a time-out be included, so NOOBS stops trying after a while if iy cannot get an IP from DHCP ?

Re: Rachel-Pi anyone ?

I have finally given up on Rachel-Pi as it seems that there is no Linux browser able to display their HTML5 videos.

So I have gone the way of KA-Lite, a Raspi application that is maybe heavier, but finally easier to install, config, run and view.

Out of idle curiosity, why does the Raspbian image waste 4 Mb of space at the beginning of the SD card ?
