Freifunk is the only project I dare to remember of, because of Batman.
Thanks for that. But that doesn't seem to be what I'm looking for. The project I was remembering was one that seemed to be more mobile, and involved a router, a Pi and specific software to manage it.

ad-hoc peer2peer networks and resources

Hello all! I'm on a mission to find some information that I have lost. I'm hoping that if I give you all enough references, you can point me to the appropriate link(s) Some time ago I came across a RPI project to create ad-hoc peer-to-peer networks. this particular link showed how to incorporate rou...

Re: Mystic BBS

I have installed the Mystic BBS on my rpi B+ and got it running... But I ran into a few problems. How can I add text files and how to access the bbs with filezilla? I there a manual for this mystic bbs? For me it is a long time ago. Back in the early 80's I had a bbs running on a Commodore 64 and l...

Re: why is my root file system read only?

Here is the requested output. It should be noted that I did manually add the rw before the rootwait. I finally found a reference to this issue and was able to fix the issue by adding the rw to the line.

why is my root file system read only?

Hello All! I'm trying out different distros for my RPi b+. I just installed Arch Linux last night from the NOOBS 1.3 network install image. Everything seem to be ok, but then I did the 'pacman -Syu' command to update and upgrade from the initial install. Once I did that, the whole file system has be...

Re: rpix86 (Raspberry Pi x86 emulator) version 0.17 released

Can rpix86 on the Pi B run another flavor of DOS other than 4DOS? I'm having trouble getting 4dos to play well with a standard msdos setup. I'm trying to load nansi.sys (from freedos) and a fossil driver (BNU.SYS) but 4DOS doesn't seem to recognize the CONFIG.SYS file. Is there some FAQ I can find t...

Re: rpix86 (Raspberry Pi x86 emulator) version 0.10 released

There have been no plans to have rpix86 run in terminal window as of yet, but the idea itself does sound interesting. Your usage scenario would probably also need an option to launch a given DOS executable directly as a command line parameter for rpix86. This is something that I am currently workin...

Re: rpix86 (Raspberry Pi x86 emulator) version 0.10 released

Are there any plans to make rpix86 run in a ssh or telnet window? I'm wanting to run some older DOS doorgames for my BBS, and I have no option at this time for running such programs, and I was wondering if that might change in the future.

Picking up some more pi's today to expand it.
What is the purpose of having a cluster? Is it a true cluster? Or just a bunch of individual Pi's housed in the same rack?

Re: Install DosEmu Raspberrypi debian Wheezy

I was looking for DOSEMU for Pi too and found this thread. Necro post incoming. There is a small movement of old DOS BBS software being ported to Pi. Mystic has a Pi version and could probably mimic your old PCBoard pretty accurately if you wanted it to (without programming). Check out mysticbbs.co...

Re: UK Keyboard layout

Don't know about NOOBS (hate that name) but the Raspbian image automatically starts raspi-config on first boot, where you only need arrow keys, spacebar, Tab and Enter to navigate and configure. I'm sure those work the same with pretty much every keyboard layout. Settings are in "Internationalisati...

UK Keyboard layout

Hello all! Got my Pi, and used NOOB to install raspbian. Unfortunately it is a non-starter for me. I'm in the US, and apparently, raspbian comes configured out of the box with the UK keyboard configuration. Sadly, there are enough differences that I could not type out the commands needed to change t...

One of the first things I do after booting my Pidora system is: killall firewalld

Well, it was one of the first things that I did, until I put it into the rc.local file.

Anyway, doing that ought to fix your problem.
Thanks a bunch! That did it!
