Re: Where to place a program?

Depending on the distro: /usr/bin or /usr/local/bin Both will work in any case, but there is a "official" one for everydistro I think Debian uses the local one, Arch uses just pure usr You need to save the file to the dir without the .py extension or else you need to type myprogram.py to run it.

Game: Pingo [Ncurses]

Here is something I made up last week during my holliday. At 1st I just wrote a simple script that printed ASCII Bingo cards on the screen, but I then wanted to do something bigger and ported it to Ncurses and worked it up from there. Basically it comes down to being an Bingo game, but it doesn't ex...

Re: Accelerated X driver testing

When do we get the source code? I think Archlinux has quite

Re: Rpiconf – config.txt editor

I'd prefer a "Void Warrenty" button that enabled the voltage changing options, just to make it explicit. I knew I have forgotten something. The idea was basicly to add code to check the sanity of the "tuning" options. And if it detected that the values seem hig/low enought it will give you a warnin...
