Re: Python import network error

Hi. I have spent a whole day trying to follow the Networking Lessons on the raspberrypi.org website. I am a secondary teacher and want to offer this task to my computer science students. Others may have also discovered that there are some crucial errors in the networking lessons, particularly in the...

Re: Attribute error/Import error

Hey, thanks Dave - it worked!! That's such a buzz to get my first Python game running, though I can't yet get to the end of the ski run. I am a secondary school teacher so my raspberrypi co-curricular group will be thrilled to be able to make their own games like this one. The Raspberrypi Education ...

Re: Attribute error/Import error

Hi, I'm another relative noobie to Python & am working through the Raspi Education Manual. I am stuck at the Skiworld game also. It is not at all clear from the manual how to add trees into the class "skiWorld". However, I have done my best. I have also indented the 'def keyEvent' function as per rs...

Re: Printer installation - should it be this difficult

Hi Again I look forward to hearing any success you have, stars & planets allowing. I did forget to add to my post above - and you've probably already done this - that in Synaptic Package Manager you need to click the 'architecture' tab and select 'arch: armhf' so that the versions of CUPS, Gutenprin...

Re: USB dial-up modem

Hi Pixiedelion It's out of my league to get the RPi to do what you want, but I wonder whether a stand-alone device such as a call logger would be an option. I just saw one at this URL: http://www.authenticsolution.com/standalone_voice_logger.html. I presume that it would plug in between the phone ja...

Re: Printer installation - should it be this difficult

Hi There I just a few minutes ago was successful in getting my Canon PIXMA MX436 printer to print using the RaspberryPi! What elation! My printer is connected straight into the RPI powered USB hub and is therefore localhost. Well, that was after many weeks of mucking around with Canon's downloadable...

Re: Bought the wrong Pi ugh

Hi There I'm in NZ and bought a RPi 512MB, case, keyboard direct from Element14 just before Christmas. Their website is confusing, however, but after communicating with them they just said click on the 'Business' tab (rather than the 'Consumer' tab), put in your details and order what you need. I pu...

Re: USB dial-up modem

EUREKA! I have my dial-up Conexant USB modem working & am posting this reply with RPi on dial-up! It's taken two months of persistent fiddling around, but in the end the crucial yet probably very simple problem was my wvdial.conf file in /etc/. I had spent a lot of time playing around with trying to...

Re: USB dial-up modem

Hi Tony, thanks for the ideas. Now that Vodafone has upped my mobile data limit, I can use the phone in tethered mode more with RPi running Raspbian. However, since my wife doesn't want wifi (!) I'll have to pass on that option for now. We are in Porirua, Wellington. Our landline has dial-up so I wa...

Re: USB dial-up modem

That sounds good, some progress. I have lately tried the newly created Squeezed ARM Puppy OS on my RasPi in the hope that it would be able to utilise my Conexant USB modem. It recognises it allright, and sends a ping to it, but cannot dial out or connect to the ISP. I suspect that the issue comes ba...

However, I had issues with getting the SD card bootable, & the solution, which may well be posted somewhere else on this forum, may be of use to others: First do as instructions say to download, decompress the ima...

I tried lots of suggestions but finally it came down to a simple command in the RPI terminal with the phone connected via usb cable & 'tethering' switched on : sudo dhclient usb0 (I got this from http...

Re: Kernel Packaging

Thanks for these instructions & links. I successfully downloaded (via dial-up!) & installed the kernel headers using dpkg -i This was part of trying to get a usb dial-up modem working on the RPI (see forum). However, the modem driver I have is for i386, not for the armv6 of the RPI, so it hasn't wor...

I just tried Sander's linuxant driver suggestion & it was looking good for the install until I came up against the same problem I had with linux mint maya a few months ago - namely it says I need to install a kernel package (before the modem driver will fully configure). Here's the error &...

This modem does work on an HP laptop that dual-boots both Win7 and SlackoPuppy, and the modem runs in both OS (Puppy doesn't even need the driver installed - it must be pre-loaded...

USB dial-up modem

Hi RPi world! I am a secondary school teacher from Wellington, NZ, trying out the rpi at home before possibly launching it at school next year. Problem is, I don't have broadband/ethernet at home, just the old-fashioned dial-up. So, I can't use apt-get! :( My PRi runs Raspbian Wheezy on a 16GB SD ca...
