Re: RPi & WiFi USB Adapter problems (Edimax EW-7811UN)

Hey Toby, I had exactly the same problems with my pi / netgear router / Edimax. My netgear is set up as a DHCP server. This works fine when connection via the built-in ethernet, but when connecting across wlan0, no IP address seems to be assigned. I got round the problem by assigning a static addres...

The Register has an article about the OpenCDE desktop environment... and a microscopic mention of its potential relevance to resource constrained devices like the Pi http://www.theregister.co.uk/2012/08/09/cde_goes_opensource/ All a bit of a blast from the nineties (and the fonts are just as horribl...

Re: VIA's entry into the low cost computer market

This happened with many of the Mini-ITX boards, the Nano-ITX boards and the Pico-ITX boards. They seem to be very good at getting the prototypes up and running, then... noth...

Any option would require compilation from source. MySQL should work OK - I was happily running a v4 database and tools last year on an 800MHz Pentium 3 with 256MB RAM on Windows 2K. But you might run into a couple of difficulties. The toolset has now moved into an all-in-one, MySQL Workbench, which ...
