Re: I2S: Anyone got it running?

The section 'typical timing' (p120) gives a brief mention: In clock master mode (CLKM=0), the PCM_CLK is an output and is driven from the PCM_MCLK clock input. In clock slave mode (CLKM=1), the PCM_CLK is an input, supplied by some external clock source. Actually upon re-reading this section, it sou...

Re: I2S: Anyone got it running?

To hopefully clear up what appears to be some confusion, there are 4 signals typical in unidirectional I2S: MCLK - This is the DAC master clock, depending on the DAC you choose the requirements may be different. Systems using I2S to transfer digital audio data don't usually require it (e.g. to conve...

Re: Setting up a usb gps dongle

It is not working on several Linux devices as well as my RPi. It's not a RPi issue but an issue with the Linux (Debian) driver for the dongle from what we can see. The device installs correctly and is recognised fine. The issue we have is that we can see no data. Having subsequently tested further,...

Re: Setting up a usb gps dongle

This dongle should without a doubt work properly in Linux, so I'm not sure what to tell you. If you're having trouble with this one, you'll probably have trouble with other similar devices as well. If you want to put your Pi online and let someone have a look maybe we could figure out the trouble...

Re: Best Database

Not sure why I didn't mention it before, but for round robin data, depending on the type of course, you may just want to use rrdtool. It's kind of limited in the types of data it can hold and how you can query it, but for lots of logging type datasets it works very well, and can generate fancy graph...

Yeah if the Pi has an Internet connection, even just GeoIP is probably good enough for solar tracking. The better databases can get you within a few dozens of KM.

Re: Java or Mono for basic GUI rPi apps?

If I were to stick to the .net framework, surely I might as well use C#? I thought the whole reason C++ was so popular was because it didn't use as much memory as C# as you have to manage your own memory, which the .net framework removes, a gcnew string is the same as a c#/vb string right, and remo...

Re: wireless access point battery powered

This is feasible but it's going to use a lot more power than just attaching a WiFi dongle to the Pi. Also LM7805 is a terrible choice for the Pi, it's very inefficient and will need a large heatsink; powering a Pi at ~500mA from 12V it will dissipate over 3.5W while supplying only 2.5W to the load. ...

Re: PL2303 serial port.

Sounds like a power problem to me, though probably you've done nothing wrong and it's just a result of the poor dimensioning of the polyfuses. Perhaps compounded by the counterfeit Prolific chip maybe having less tolerance for undervoltage.

Of course 'seriously'. That's exactly what DNS is for.

Also, the whole point of BSD is raw stability, which is exactly what you need out of a Firewall.

If you can write code that works and grok the tools you're using to develop it, understanding a couple straightforward command line tools doesn't seem like a stretch at all.

Try vsftpd instead. I think the default Debian configuration works.

Though really you shouldn't use FTP. Install SSH and use SCP or SFTP instead. You get a remote shell free!
