Looks like there is no ARM port, although with the sources I guess you could give it a Make and see what pops out?

Re: Setting-Up MuseScore on the Raspberry Pi

Jessie has 1.3, the ppa is up to 2.0.3 so there may be a need to faff just a bit.

Re: Any alternate method to determining if my B+ is function

There's kind of an unofficial Touch Test. Plug in your Pi and touch the SoC. If it gets really hot, really fast then your Pi is really dead.

Re: Record music from line in sound card and cast it

Your first step would be to get the audio in to the Pi. The PiFi is output only, and the onboard audio jack is out only as well.

Re: Connecting a 5V Relay module 220v

So you're running a 12v DC fan. Might want to take the 220V AC out of the subject line since that appears to have no bearing on the actual question.

Re: Unexpected shutdowns protection - different filesystem?

Perhaps it's a matter of semantics. OpenWRT is not getting any new commits, there are a few security commits being added. All the core developers are now commiting to LEDE and no longer updating OpenWRT. So it's in a permanent feature freeze without any active development.

Re: Unexpected shutdowns protection - different filesystem?

OpenWRT is a dead entity. All the main developers have left the project and now are working on LEDE. https://www.lede-project.org/ And while making the Pi into a router is a neat learning experience, PI's make intensely horrid routing platforms. If you want to go that route, pick and SBC with dedica...

Re: RAM disk for greater reliability

RAMDisk, in the sense that OP used are transient (DRAM or Dynamic Ram). They do store the data in RAM but the data needs to be constantly updated (the refresh rate) in order to be functional. You cut the power and the data refresh is no more, along with the data. NVRam is Non-Volatile Ram, and can s...

Re: Unexpected shutdowns protection - different filesystem?

There's tolerance to unexpected shutdown and tolerance to unexpected abrupt power removal. Some journaling filesystems may make it appear as if they have no issues with sudden power loss, but they do. Mission critical devices typically have some sort of augmented power that effects a sane shutdown w...
