Re: HOWTO: Move the filesystem to a USB stick

Great, I'm glad this was useful for you. BTW, I had never heard of PiCloner, had to Google it. For others, here is the link : http://sourceforge.net/projects/picloner/ It's best to run PiCloner overnight as it takes sooooooooooo looooooooooooooooong to do it's thing, but it works well nevertheless.

Re: HOWTO: Move the filesystem to a USB stick

This is very good. It has solved the problem that I was having with gphoto2 writing to both the hard drive and the sd card.

Just a thought though. I made a copy of my sd card image with pi cloner before I started, as I had been working on it for a week and didn't want to loose what I had.

Re: Identifying the Pi over the network

One thing I've been exploring a bit is netcat/nc. It has a lot of potential for making a simple service where you could send a broadcast on a certain port and have the Pi respond with its IP address. This wiki entry has some interesting examples to build on. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Netcat Hi B...

Apparently it needs to go through a shutdown procedure if you have any daemons running.
