Re: Minecraft 1.8.8 vanilla server on Ubuntu MATE?

Vanilla minecraft will not run on a pi at all as it is not designed to run on an ARM processor. Even if it could, it would be slow.

Fresh install GUI problems

I have a fresh install of Raspbian (7.8) on a Pi2. My issue is when I go to the desktop GUI, the taskbar on the top of the screen keeps flickering in and out. The trash bin is moving up and down so it appears as though the taskbar is popping in and out itself. I left it there thinking maybe it was j...

Raspberry becomes... unresponsive

Im not sure how best to explain this, so stick with me. I have a Raspberry 2 running Raspbian, updated with the new GUI and whatnot. All seems good with it initially, I can do whatever it is I need to do, but after a time, usually a day or two, the system becomes unresponsive. I can't SSH to it for ...

Well your result isn't even 119 characters, but the latter result is.

The string you seem to be looking for, could you not just do some wizardry and cut out what you need? Or add in anything.

Bit of an odd question. RPi and DBase

Keep it simple. I was wondering if a raspberry could run DBase. At my work, we still use DBase, and Im having some unrelated issues with getting Windows XP to not crash with some USB hubs, and if I could somehow get a Raspberry to be able to run DBase, it would save me from a HUGE headache. I know D...

Re: hosts.allow and hosts.deny

And as always, as soon as I post this, I figure it out.

It reads down the list, so if I put the allows first then the deny all, I can get the allowances I wish.

Problem solved.

Re: Connecting Pi to PC

Get a VGA to DVI adapter and connect your monitor to your PC with a VGA cable. Also note that you can't connect both the raspberry and your PC to the same monitor and switch back and forth, otherwise KBM switches would not be necessary. So you can just plug in the Pi when you need. Or using some rem...

Some things you could do. Disable root login through SSH Make your password long and complex so a brute force would be pointless.

Re: Complete Beginner with a few questions

There are wireless mouse/keyboard combos for cheap, and only need 1 USB port. A WiFi dongle also uses only 1 port. Assuming you have a Mobel B, you would be just fine there, assuming your power supply can provide enough to run them. A 5V 1A power source is usually enough.
