Re: How to bring up Raspberry Pi board

<r>Since all the Alpha boards should be relatively the same you can also ask someone else who has linux installed to send you an image of the SD card, Then you can use something like DD to transfer the image to the SD card.<br/> <br/> The other method would be to grab one of the supported distros.

Re: Release date???

<t>Be glad that this organization has decided to share any information with the community, open it\'s forums to anyone, and constantly post updates on it\'s site. They could have just said \"forget the public, lets keep it all in house till we are ready to ship\". Then testing would have taken longe...

Re: Cases for the Raspberry Pi

After watching one of the videos and seeing what the final size may be close to, An old NES controller comes to mind as a case, or possibly a fully functional self contained gaming system that can run off of two AA's or a power adapter. Also lets not forget the almighty Altoids cans :P

Re: Zoneminder on Raspberry Pi

At the cost running one camera per device might not be a bad thing, Even at the cost of SD card, and power adapter they R-PI-B is still lower then most Network based cameras. Great idea. Can't wait till they ship.

Re: OT: Needs some windows disk recovery help

Could use DD or DD-Rescue to image the drive, then grab the slueth kit and autopsy to comb through files. A little more of a learning curve at first but this option has saved me a ton of time in the past.

Re: Arm based Ubuntu information.

<r>One other bit on this. A short while back I was playing around with some WYSE Winterms, these where ARM based thin clients which originally ran Windows CE. Since CE is about useless to me I set out to install some sort of linux on it. I found that SliTaz Linux ran pretty easily on the device. All...

Re: What have we missed?

<r>You can also get HDMI to DVI adapters which will work with most flat screens. About $11 or cheaper, then a DVI-VGA adapter about $15. Yes it is a lot of adapters but I think the R-Pi team is thinking more along the lines of low cost vs having all the same features as a full blown motherboard. Als...

Re: WM Theme competition?

A theme would be cool, but the base unit won't be sold with an OS installed, I remember reading that there may be an option to buy one with pre-installed OS though. In all a good idea but I have no artistic talent :(

Re: Windows 8?

If microsoft decides to jump on the arm bandwagon that would be cool, don't get me wrong they have their usefulness maybe they will listen to the years of people howling about releasing older version to the open source community, but I won't hold my breath just yet.

Re: Arm based Ubuntu information.

For those looking to get a glimpse of what can be done with the ARM cpu and ubuntu here is some information about running ubuntu on the beagleboard which has some close similarities to the r-pi.

Re: microphone input?....on rasberry pi

<t>I'm not 100% on this, but I doubt for the most part of the ARM versions are going to be so outdated they won't support generic devices such as usb audio input. There are very few projects in which I can think of that would require a mic, aside from possibly security system with audio, voice chat,...
