Re: Using omni-directional wifi antenna for Rpi

I have purchased this, Joe: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833704045 (can't quite get there to be two URL tags on phpBB forums, oh well.) I will post a review of it (when it arrives) with and without the external antenna. Edit: as to using my own antenna, it is most probably a...

Re: Using omni-directional wifi antenna for Rpi

I want to be able to use this antenna. Do you know if it is possible to use this antenna in any possible way with the Raspberry Pi?

Using omni-directional wifi antenna for Rpi

Hello! What I am trying to accomplish is using an omni-directional wifi antenna as a wifi antenna for the Raspberry Pi. The wifi antenna has two (connectors?) that would normally connect to an mPCIe wifi adapter in my computer. Is this possible and how would I go about doing it? Thanks in advance fo...

XBMC scanning issues.

Hello! I have just recently installed Raspbmc on my Rpi. I put some music on it via a samba server and a Windows device, and they are all located in a folder under /home/pi. I have gone into Music, deselected Library mode, and then scanned the folder into the library. It goes through quickly and whe...

ENOSPC failed.

I am trying to set up motion on the camera board and I always get an error that says:

Code: Select all

mmal: mmal_vc_component_enable: failed to enable component: ENOSPC
I get this error constantly when starting motion for the second time. I have set the gpu memory to be 256.

Beginner in Camera...

I have followed this guide: http://www.codeproject.com/Articles/665518/Raspberry-Pi-as-low-cost-HD-surveillance-camera and I have set up motion. However, the Raspberry Pi does not save it to the place that I want it to save it to. Also, when I view the camera via the internet, it shows it as a black...

I have fixed the problem by reinstalling.

I followed this guide: http://www.codeproject.com/Articles/665 ... nce-camera

But it does not automatically run motion on boot.

Re: Unable to install rpi-update

Mine shows some time on November 16.

Even after revisiting raspi-setup and enable camera support and rebooting, I am still unable to use raspivid or raspistill.

Re: Unable to install rpi-update

Yes I did reboot.
Updating and all didn't install anything new, so I'm confused as to why raspivid and raspistill don't work.

Like the title says. I also do not have camera support, despite the fact that I have added camera support in raspi-config.

Re: Raspberry Pi acting somewhat sluggish

My SD card is a Class 10 PNY. I think that I have passed any issues with the web browser. Now it is more of an issue with Mathematica installation, which is a totally different matter. However, I have OC'ed the Pi to the "High" setting. I am also having issues whenever I make an application full-scr...
